saying with each story there is some universal quality that the audience can identify with. The art of storytelling is about being able to tap into the audience’s ability to visualize the tale as it is being spun. Storytelling allows the storyteller to bring an audience to laughter, to tears, to the “same place and the same feeling at the same time,� Lalonde said. “We all have a story to tell and every family has a story to tell,� Lalonde commented. “It makes us who we are and we don’t share (our stories) anymore.� Stories themselves for the storytellers, are a bit like a song - from the concept and idea, to practice and ironing out the details, however their stories are memorized; they don’t follow a script. The stories are not fairy tales, as perhaps some might envision immediately, they are stories created by the storyteller, using history and their personal experiences. They are mature pieces. Dunleavy is an accomplished international storyteller and author - having travelled to Labrador, Scotland, Ireland and Singapore. Lalonde has a background in education and working with youth. He has been a storyteller for over 10 years.

Aquatarium mural Linklater Public School Grades 5 and 6 students used their creativity recently to paint a mural which will be used to promote the 1000 Islands. The mural painting venture was filmed and will be featured tomorrow, March 22, when Riverquest tourism partners gather in Brockville to strategize.

Linklater students enjoy painting wonders of the 1000 Islands Region EMC News – Grades 5 and 6 students in teacher Lianne Swann’s class used their creativity to paint a mural recently that will be featured in a short video presentation to promote the wonder of the 1000 Islands Region. The video will be featured March 22 when ‘Riverquest’ tourism partners gather in Brockville to strategize on marketing their destinations with the new Aquatarium. The students took turns in groups of 2, 3 or 4 to paint what they believe demonstrates all the fun things to see and do in the 1000 Islands. In about 40 minutes a blank canvass became a colourful masterpiece featuring a Fort Henry blockhouse with smoke billowing from the chimney, Canadian and U.S. flags with a bridge connecting the two countries, a bright sun in the top corner wearing sunglasses over a smile, an Inukshuk, a moose, a beaver, flowers includ-

ing trilliums and roses, and a bumblebee. Eleven-year-old Hannah Davison painted the bee because “we have so many flowers and the bees need the flowers.” Ten-year-old Hanna Delaney chose the beaver because it “represents Canada.” Owen Brons, 10, painted the U.S. flag because “we go there a lot and I really like flags, especially the stars and the coloured lines.” Gracie Pratt, 11 teamed up with Georgia Treptow, also 11, to paint the Canadian flag because it is a “big symbol of Canada” and “how lucky we are to have a good country.” Eleven-year-old Regan Swann chose to paint the Inukshuk because she says it “represents Canada.” She also chose the moose because it is a “sign of Canada.” Doug McLellan of the McLellan Group in Toronto shot the video of the children creating

their mural. He will use stop video techniques to edit the 40 minute production into less than a minute while displaying the development of the painting from start to finish. The video will be part of the March 22 Water Day Event for Riverquest Partners at the Brockville Arts Centre. The meeting, from 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., will be an engaging presentation outlining the Aquatarium accomplishments and what is planned in the near future. Riverquest is an initiative created and launched by Brockville’s Aquatarium. It’s focused on one of the most unique destinations in North America, the 1000 Islands region of the St. Lawrence River. Riverquest partners represent the best visitor experiences from Cornwall and Massena in the east, to Sackets Harbor and Kingston in the west.

2 ST. LAWRENCE EMC - Thursday, March 21, 2013

EMC Entertainment - The Fort Town Concert Association will close its 30th concert season with a Jeunesses Musicales Canada production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte on Thursday, April 4, 8 p.m. at the St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Prescott. Literally “Thus do they all”, this 18th century opera tells a tale of jealousy, trickery and mischief. In a staging transposed to early 1960s, Madmen style, stage director Alain Gauthier uses his customary

originality to rediscover an opera which, for years, conquered the hearts of many music lovers. Mozart and Da Ponte, the librettist, took as a theme “fiancée swapping” which dates back to the 13th century, with notable earlier versions being those of Boccaccio’s Decameron and Shakespeare’s play Cymbeline with elements from The Taming of the Shrew. The action takes place in Naples. Singing the role of Fiordiligi is soprano Jennifer Taverner;

Dorabella is sung by mezzosoprano Arminè Kassabian; Guglielmo, by baritone Philip Kalmanovitch; Ferrando, by tenor Isaiah Bell; Despina, by soprano Jana Miller; & Don Alfonso, by baritone Philippe Bolduc. Accompanying the cast is pianist Jérémie Pelletier. Musical director is Louise-Andrée Baril. Single admission is $20 (adult); $5 (student); free for child 12 and under. Early-bird adult season tickets for the 2013/14 season will

be available at $50 (adult); and student tickets at $12. The 2013/14 concert season will include: Eternal Vienna - cello and piano performance, with an introductory choral rendering by the Village Voyces on Oct. 4, 2013; Simone Osbourne, soprano, on Dec. 6, 2013; Tina Chong, piano, on Feb. 28, 2014; Puccini’s La Bohème on March 31, 2014.

EMC News - The Athens Food Bank is open on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Last year we began holding â&#x20AC;&#x153;Market Mondaysâ&#x20AC;? where we accepted garden produce to be distributed to food bank clients. Many of you will soon be starting to plant some seedlings indoors and/or creating a layout for your garden. In doing so, think about adding a row or two where you will grow produce specifically for the food bank. You will be able to bring in fresh garden vegetables to the back of the local Food Bank, 57 Elgin St. N.

EMC News - The City of Brockville University Working Group said last week that Algoma will not be able to start an extension program in Brockville this September, but they are optimistic that a September 2014 start is possible and will be working hard to make that happen. The extension program would see Algoma offering the first two years of a Bachelor of Arts in Brockville, with students taking years three and four at Algomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campus in Sault St. Marie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Setting an initial goal of opening in September 2013 was useful because it gave us a sense of urgency. It certainly focused our efforts and the efforts of Algoma University over the past few months. However, we always knew that it was a very ambitious target,â&#x20AC;? said Don Heron, Chair of the Economic Development Advisory Team for the City of Brockville. The 2013 start ran into timing difficulties. A ministry decision has got caught up in an on-going review of the priorities of all universities and colleges and the provincial government has been in transition. The guidance counselors at area high schools have now indicated that most of their students have already made decisions on their post-secondary program.

Ontario PC plan would indeed save the Thousand Islands Casino: Clark EMC News – EMC News - “We need to shelve the OLG’s empire building plan to open up 29 new casinos. If we decide to expand gaming options, then why not build off what is already working and successful in welcoming communities? This would provide the certainty necessary to make investments and create jobs in Ontario.” – Page 24, Ontario PC Party’s Paths to Prosperity: Respect for Rural Ontario. Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark says only an Ontario PC government would halt OLG’s modernization plan, putting to an end any discussion of relocating the Thousand Islands Casino to Kingston. Clark has taken a strong stand against the McGuinty-Wynne government’s OLG modernization process because it

puts more than 400 jobs at the casino in jeopardy and would deliver a devastating blow to the local economies in the Town of Gananoque and Leeds and the Thousand Islands Township. “I’m proud our Respect for Rural Ontario white paper commits to ending OLG’s plan to build 29 new casinos,” said Clark. “Only our party is making this commitment, which would ensure the Thousand Islands Casino remains where it has prospered for the last 10 years – and where residents of the host communities want it.” Released on Thursday, the Respect for Rural Ontario policy discussion paper states: “We need to shelve the OLG’s empire building plan to open up 29 new casinos.”

“It can’t get any clearer than that when it comes to securing the future of our casino. Our plan stops the City of Kingston’s bid to lure away the Thousand Islands Casino – despite the objections of 60 per cent of its residents – dead in its tracks,” said Clark. In addition to its impact on the local casino, Clark noted the OLG modernization plan is also behind the turmoil in Ontario’s horse racing industry where some 60,000 jobs (including 1,000 or more in Leeds-Grenville) are at risk. Clark said layoffs are already taking place across Ontario as a result of the McGuinty-Wynne government’s decision to unilaterally end the prosperous partnership with the horse racing industry through the Slots at Racetracks program.

Rotary park wins

R0011948813

Brockville’s Rotary Park Revitalization project was the lucky winner of a $50,000 grant from the Maple Leafs Sports Enterprises (MLSE) Team Up Fund, to complete Phase Two of work at the park. The local project was one of six recipients of grants in the 2013 MLSE Team Up Fund. Round two voting took place between Feb. 22 and March 8. Brockville’s project came out as a winner due to the number of votes the project received. The funding will be applied to the additional $150,000 needed to be raised through fundraising in order to construct a shelter, installation of park benches, trees and the creation of murals, purchase and installation of synthetic ice over a pre-existing outdoor hockey rink.

Madden Hearing Centre supports local hospital EMC News — Madden Hearing Centre in Brockville recently donated $4500 to local charities, including the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation and the Annual 30-Hour Palliative Care Telethon. “We donated $50 from each hearing aid device sale from October to December of 2012,” explains Assistant General Manager and Marketing Manager for Madden Brockville Chris Madden. “The staff put together a list of nine community groups to support and our clients chose where the donation portion of their purchases went. It’s the first time we’ve done this,” he adds, “and we are really pleased with

the results.” Madden Hearing Centre was started in Smiths Falls in 1989 and now has five locations across Eastern Ontario. The charitable donation drive was held company-wide and raised over $10,000 for local charities in Brockville, Smiths Falls, Perth, Kemptville and Carleton Place. In Brockville, the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation received $800 and the Annual 30-Hour Palliative Care Telethon $850. The Telethon is a major fundraiser for the Brockville and District Hospice Palliative Care Service that is based in Brockville General Hospital. R0011977590_0321

The Firehall Show will feature a “Songwriter’s Circle” led by Laura Bird, performances by humourist and author Deborah Kimmett, jazz musicians Sara Hamilton and David, The Calamity Janes, Georgette Frye’s Shout Sister Choir, and The Roosevelts. And as with Gilda herself, they are all women to be reckoned with, all out there for a great cause. Gilda Radner was a force to be reckoned with. Born in Detroit, Michigan, on June 28, 1946, she went on to become a much loved comedienne and mega-star on Saturday Night Live creating memorable characters like Roseanne Roseannadanna (personal advice expert), “Baba Wawa” (a parody of Barbara Walters), and Emily Litella (a misinformed, hearing-impaired senior citizen). She ended up on Broadway and in movies, and married to the love of her life, Gene Wilder. But, on May 20, 1989, the world lost her to ovarian cancer at the age of 42. From this sprang “Gilda’s Club”, a collection of affiliated “clubhouses”, where those touched by cancer, whether victims, friends or family members, can gather and learn to live with cancer. The name of the centres came from a remark Radner once made, “Having cancer gave me membership in an elite club I’d rather not belong to.” They opened the doors of their New York City location in 1995, and have branched out to more than 80 affiliates in large and small cities, helping those who suffer ever since. “Our long-term goal is to strengthen the global understanding that emotional and social support are as essential as medical care when cancer is in the family,” says the organization. A brand new Clubhouse will be opening soon in Kingston, providing all the benefits expected behind the soon to be classic red doors. It is completely free of charge and relies entirely on community donations to stay afloat. For those living with cancer, there are Weekly Wellness Groups, Family Groups and monthly Networking Groups. Clubhouses also include Team Convene, a special session to create an active support network to help in the process of learning to live with cancer; Family Focus to help bring the entire family in as a helpful resource; Noogieland, where children whose lives are feeling the impact of cancer can have activities of their very own; and PH&D, designed to assist with social and emotional needs of cancer survivors. This event will also include assorted draws, 50/50 and tee-shirts will be available for purchase. Be sure to wear red to show your support. To purchase tickets, please go to the Stonewater Pub or the Gananoque Inn. For more information, please contact Jeff Girling at 613-382-2542.

DEAR EDITOR:

EMC Editorial - March 26 is Purple Day for Epilepsy. As March winds down – Epilepsy Awareness Month – this one day has been set aside in dedication of raising awareness of the condition. While it is called Purple Day, the colour is more specifically lavender, as explained by the Epilepsy Resource Centre. Purple or lavender, whatever the shade, the colour signifies a sense of togetherness, for those with epilepsy or seizure disorders, to know they are not alone. According to the Purple Day website, research dictates “an estimated 50 million people” suffer from epilepsy worldwide, most beginning at the “extremes” of age – old age and childhood. While so far there is no cure for epilepsy, there are treatments, drugs which are used as therapy to help suppress seizures. Other treatment includes surgery, whereby the “region of the brain that triggers the seizures, without affecting vital functions such as language, memory, movements and sensation,” is removed. For those with a loved one who has a seizure, the website suggests staying calm and removing nearby objects which might cause harm. Do not hold the person or restrain their movements, do not put anything in their mouth, turn them on their side as the seizure ends, do not offer food or drink until the person is fully alert and stay with the person until they are thinking clearly. There are several types of seizures, but the first-aid tips are generally the same for all. The seizure itself is a “brief, abnormal, excessive surge or electrical activity in the brain that produces a sometimes noticeable change in behaviour.” Epilepsy is a condition of the brain “characterized by recurrent seizures.” However, according to the website, one in 10 people will experience at least one seizure event in their lifetime. A single seizure though, is not epilepsy. Purple Day was originally founded by a nine year-old girl in Nova Scotia who was dealing with epilepsy. Her goal was to raise awareness of the condition and to erase the stigma surrounding seizure disorders. For more information about Purple Day please visit www.purpleday.org and for more information about the Epilepsy and Seizure Disorder Resource Centre of Southeastern Ontario visit www.epilepsyresource.org.

Mary became talented at bringing herself to another place EMC Lifestyle - At an early age, I developed an ability that I thought at the time, saved me from many a disappointment, worry and even heartache, and put me in another world. It took a lot of patience, and a great deal of practice, and much trial and error, but when I had perfected the exercise, it gave me great satisfaction and peace of mind. Through deep concentration, and forcing my mind away from an unpleasant situation, I was able to move my thoughts from the source of my anguish, and into a more pleasant place. This time of year, many was the time I had to put into practice this talent I had developed. The ice was gone out of the Bonnechere and the current was fast, and the mud pout could be seen from the shore. The three brothers had been watching

the Spring breakup for weeks, and now the time had finally come. I hated the very thought of the method used by the brothers to catch the fish. Using spears, some of which were made from a pitchfork from the barn, they straddled an old tree that had fallen across the river at a narrow point, and stabbed them without mercy. When the mud pout became part of our supper, Mother aware of my squeamish stomach, would put a slice of meat Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104 Regional General Manager Peter O’Leary poleary@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 112 Group Publisher Duncan Weir dweir@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 164 Managing Editor Ryland Coyne

on my plate, or let me have scrambled eggs. And as I sat at the supper table, I would put into place my talent. I would picture in my mind pieces of bologna, my very favourite treat, sitting on the platter of mud pout in front of me. And even when my hateful brother Emerson would smack his lips for my benefit, I was able to change in my mind, the picture of the mud pout and turn it into bologna. This talent was put to good use at the Northcote School on more than one occasion too. If bad Marguirite was getting on my nerves, which happened at least once a day, I would picture her in my mind with homemade flourbag underwear under her skirt. She made sure every girl at the Northcote School knew that her underpinnings came from Walker’s Store in Renfrew! I got so good at this trick of imagination, that I

could even see Pride of the Valley written across her seat! Emerson often said I was scared of my own shadow, and that wasn’t all that far from the truth. In the dark of night, in my bed, the sounds in the country terrified me. The whippoorwills in the distance, making their eerie cries, the wolves howling as they skirted the barnyard looking for their next meal, and the old house cracking from the frost in the dead of winter were all sounds that kept sleep at bay. And then I would call on this special talent I had developed over time. When these sounds surrounded me in my bed, I would force my mind’s eye to a street corner in Renfrew, and see the Salvation Army band playing and singing their rousing hymns, and I would be able to block out the frightening sounds around me. And sleep would come.

This escape talent came to good use on Sundays too. We sat in the front pew at church, and our minister, a giant of a man, would come swooping down the aisle and climb into the little cubicle raised above the floor and he would scan the congregation before he said a word. I was sure he was singling me out and with his eyes, and knew every sin I had committed since the Sunday before. His thundering voice shook the rafters, and his enormous surplus billowed out as he waved his arms, and he looked for all the world like a large black bird. That’s when I would look over his head to a spot on the blue painted wall, and I would pretend I was an angel, and my mission in life in my mind was to help the starving Armenians.

Local junior citizen still fundraising Lt.-Gov. recognizes Ontario’s ‘inspiring’ dozen nevil.hunt@metroland.com

EMC News - After countless hours of hard work and caring for others, a dozen young Ontarians enjoyed a day all about them on March 8. Twelve kids travelled to Toronto to meet Ontario Lt.-Gov. David C. Onley at Queen’s Park, where the Queen’s representative presented each with an Ontario Junior Citizen Award.

Gananoque’s McKenna Modler, 12, was among the recipients. McKenna is well known after battling a brain tumour and then going on to raise money for a fund that helps families deal with unexpected expenses when a child is ill. To fundraise, she started McKenna’s Dream Team, which has had considerable success spurring people to donate to the Children’s Cancer Fund at the Kingston General Hospital. McKenna was nominated for the Ju-

nior Citizen Award by multiple people and groups, including the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation. The whirlwind day in Toronto started with a sky-high reception for all the winners on the 54th floor of the TD Bank Tower in the city’s core. There the winners and their families were treated to lunch and each child received a silver lapel pin and a $400 cheque. McKenna, who is now in good health and attends Grade 7 at GISS, said she was both excited and honoured to win the award. Onley met the award recipients at Queen’s Park and presented each with a plaque. “You have showed your special gifts and abilities and given generously and creatively,” Onley said. “It can be humbling as adults to see all you have accomplished. On behalf of all of the people of Ontario, I want to thank you for your good work and the fine example you have set.” 70 weeks

McKenna’s father, Scott Modler, said it was his daughter’s idea to fundraise for the Children’s Cancer Fund and he supported her because it might allow the family to spend time together, working on a common goal. “I thought it would keep her mind off (treatments),” Scott said, adding that McKenna travelled once a week for 70 weeks to Kingston for treatments, which ended about a year ago. Scott said he contacted friends and family about McKenna’s plan to raise money. “I thought a goal of maybe $10,000 was reasonable,” he said. “It’s at $130,000 now and still going. The community just seemed to take over.” He said there were groups and individuals who donated money, including one person who gave $10,000. “It’s unreal how it took off,” Scott said. The Children’s Cancer Fund helps families with kids who have to travel for treatment. Expenses families may face

For more information, look for “McKenna’s Dream” on Facebook. 32nd year The provincial Junior Citizen Award program is co-ordinated by the Ontario Community Newspaper Association, of which the St. Lawrence News EMC is one of the 310 members. Youths aged six to 17 can be nominated for their involvement in community service, for contributing to their community while living with a physical or psychological limitation or for performing acts of heroism or bravery. The program’s corporate sponsors – TD Bank Group and Direct Energy – both sent representatives to the awards presentation. Tina Murphy of TD thanked the winners’ parents for backing their childrens’ efforts. “Every young person should have the support to reach their potential,” Murphy said. Dave Walton of Direct Energy lamented that the word “inspiring” was being used frequently during the day’s presentations and speeches, but suggested that was for good reason. “Your dedication to your causes at such a young age is inspiring,” he told the award winners. The Junior Citizen Award program is in its 32nd year and there were 150 nominees across Ontario for the 2012 awards ceremony. By one estimate, the 12 award recipients raised about $440,000 for many different causes in 2012. Look for the opening of nominations for the 2013 program later this year in this newspaper.

took the food right of their mouths if we didn’t eat everything on our plates. I thought they lived in Arnprior. So when I took on the role in my mind’s eye of this little floating angel high in our church, and I pictured myself doing good deeds, the fear of the minister vanished. Every Friday afternoon without fail, Miss Crosby read from a story book she would bring to the Northcote School. There was no such thing as a library at the one-room schoolhouse back in the 30’s. I would sit enthralled...not so much with the story, but from the sound of Miss Crosby’s sweet voice as she read from the book. She read with such inflection, you could picture yourself right inside the story. And it was then I would again transport my mind to another place. I would picture myself all grown up, far away from Northcote and the one room school house. In my mind’s eye I would be standing before great crowds of people, and I would be telling stories, and the stories wouldn’t come from a book, but they would be of my own creation. Such were the unachievable dreams of a young child of the 30’s. All made possible through the simple act of imagination.

Saving seeds for sustainability; Topic of next Transition Brockville meeting March 24 EMC Events — Gardeners who are thinking about growing heirloom plants and saving their own seed for next year can learn a great deal from Cate Henderson, of the Providence Seed Sanctuary, the guest speaker at the next meeting of Transition Brockville, on March 24. In her talk, “Saving Seeds for Sustainability,” Henderson discusses reasons for saving seeds and how to save seeds in our climate and region. She’ll describe community seed banks or seed systems, and talk about the progress at Kingston’s Providence Seed Sanctuary, where she has been working as the gardener and seed saver for four years. The sanctuary is located in the

gardens of Heathfield, home of the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul. In 1999 the sisters joined forces with long-time organic farmers Carol and Robert Mouck to found the Heirloom Seed Sanctuary. In the face of climate change, and with hybrid and genetically engineered seeds dominating the marketplace, preserving and disseminating rare but hardy heritage seed varieties that are open pollinated makes eminent sense, preserves diversity and ensures sustainable gardening. The sanctuary’s garden, almost a hectare in size, is a proving ground for hundreds of varieties of vegetables, tomatoes, flowers and herb seeds gathered first by the Moucks.

Although they have retired, Henderson and her volunteers continue their work. “We grow out the Moucks’ collection of just over 300 varieties on a regular rotation, and I have recently been given permission to change or add varieties as I see fit,” Henderson says. Henderson also offers public workshops on seed saving in the sanctuary’s resource centre and provides volunteer and internship opportunities on site. She comes with a PowerPoint presentation filled with garden and plant photos, and she’s happy to answer questions. While she won’t have seeds to sell at this Transition talk,

she’ll bring some uncleaned seeds and some jars of seeds. In addition, Brandy Smith, the library’s community development co-ordinator, will display a wealth of gardening books available for borrowing. All who have an interest in heritage gardening are welcome to this free, public presentation at the Transition Brockville meeting this Sunday, at 2 p.m., in the Brockville Public Library’s meeting room. Transition Brockville (TB) was founded by local residents six years ago to provide a non-partisan forum for sharing information about how each of us, in our daily lives, can help to slow the rate of global warming,

reduce our dependence on depleting fossil fuels, and adapt to the impacts of peak oil and climate change. TB builds and sells rain barrels to interested homeowners. It also sponsors a program that allows people to borrow a watt meter from the Brockville Public Library to measure the electricity used by various appliances and electronic equipment in their homes. For more information about Transition Brockville, visit transitionbrockville.com or call Hugh Campbell, 613-345-2712. Meetings from September to June are usually held on the fourth Sunday at the library, a partner with TB in offering these presentations.

Arts Council to be formed at upcoming event: Members sought By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Entertainment – The arts and culture movement in Brockville is hitting a high point and while there is much work ahead – the opportunities are seemingly endless. The creation of an Arts Council is within reach, as plans are chugging along for the ‘You Art the Heart of the Arts!’ open forum April 6 at the Brockville Memorial Centre. Beginning at 2 p.m. that day the public is invited out to become a member of the new Arts Council, to elect the founding board and to share and be a part of the economic future and life of the arts in Brockville. “All of this can come together very nicely,” Howard Alexander explained. Alexander is a member of the Brockville Arts Task Force and is one of the two people who are the driving force

behind the creation of the Arts Council. “What happens is limited strictly by the vision.” Deborah Dunleavy is the acting chair for the task force. The council will be an atarms-length, not for profit group which will be able to access and distribute grant funding which is currently inaccessible for the city and its owned cultural bodies. The forum, April 6, will feature information about what the council’s missions will be, however the council’s founding board will be the navigators for registering the entity as a non profit. The board features 11 positions, which will be voted in that afternoon. Applications for anyone interested in sitting on the founding board of directors are ready for pick up at the Brockville Public Library, Brockville Museum, Brockville Arts Centre, and online from the city website at www.brockville.com.

All those interested in sitting on the founding board, must have their application in by March 27. A mailing address will be provided on the application, or completed applications may also be dropped back off at the facilities listed above. Those applying and who wish to sit on the board, must attend the April 6 event. All candidates will be provided two minutes to speak to the membership about why they wish to sit on the board. Paid members will then vote their founding board members in. This is a one year term. Introductory memberships may be purchased at the event at a cost of $10 (cash or cheque). Those wishing to sit on the board must, “have an interest in arts and culture. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to an organization at the ground level.

The Arts Task Force identified four goals for the Arts Council being to “encourage and improve access to arts and culture”, “to provide financial and in kind support to artists, organizations and cultural facilities”, “to work with all levels of government, public and private organizations and community stakeholders”, and “to facilitate and promote a broad range of arts and cultural programs and events.” The founding board will also be tasked with determining just what the mission and purpose will be for the Arts Council, as well as to determine its governing bylaws and to establish an advisory board.

an interest in the arts, or patrons of the arts, supporters of the arts and culture, those with an interest in heritage as well as individuals, community groups, those from businesses, and of course artists and artisans from all genres. The session that afternoon will feature a power point presentation and further information. Alexander noted the arts as such, is an “isolating activity,” and artists often don’t have a common voice. “We really needed to build a creative economy and provide an ongoing support for artists,” he said of the city. “A common voice is very important.” The opportunity to access grants through the council will open many doors, Dunleavy said. In the long term funds could be put towards workshops, as well

as perhaps even a cultural centre – not to be confused with the local arts centre of course. A cultural centre could provide a venue for groups to come in, for intimate performances, for youth as well. “We feel very strongly this Arts Council is not a closed door group,” Dunleavy emphasized. Alexander’s history is as a bassoonist, he has performed at the National Ballet of Canada, he is a composer and has a genuine passion for the arts and the community. Dunleavy is an accomplished international storyteller and author - having travelled to Labrador, Scotland, Ireland and Singapore. For more information, contact ddunleavy@cogeco.ca or 613342-3463.

EMC Lifestyle - March is Nutrition Month. A 2012 survey by Dietitians of Canada indicated that 63 per cent of consumers struggle with making healthier food choices at least half of the time they shop for groceries. The goal of this year’s campaign is to provide consumers with practical advice on how to plan, shop and cook more effectively. Research shows that having healthier food choices available and easily accessible in the home can increase intake of these foods. “Helping consumers put healthier foods in their grocery basket is one important step in having healthy foods available

at home” explains Meena Tipper, a Registered Dietitian at the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit. The other important part is to make sure that Canadians have the basic foods skills to prepare meals at home. “By providing consumers with online and community resources, we hope to make healthier eating a little more practical,” says Tipper. Food doesn’t have to be obtained from the grocery store alone. Growing your own, joining a community garden or visiting the farmer’s market are just a few other options. In the month of March, the Food Matters co-

alition in partnership with the Health Unit will be hosting two free gardening and preservation workshops on March 2 and March 23 for anyone interested. For more information on how to navigate your food choices or how to register for a workshop, contact the Leeds, Grenville & Lanark Health Unit at 613-345-5685 or toll free at 1-800-660-5853.

Registration for new Special Olympics program takes place April 7 By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC News - Registration for a new Special Olympics program for youngsters takes place April 7. For Jonathan Hanna, whose son Colton has Down Syndrome; he sees the difference this program will make to youngsters with intellectual disabilities. Hanna is actually starting up an Active Start program, for children ages two to six. And the FUNdamentals program for children seven to 12. These programs are run through Special Olympics Canada, and locally, Hanna is the force behind their upcoming launch in Brockville. Active Start looks at the basics of body movement for children. For example, running, throwing, catching. The basics of participating in sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; teaching children the proper way to run, to catch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an easy way of getting kids confident in using these skills,â&#x20AC;? he noted. Moving on to the FUNdamentals program, this series will take the skills children learned in Active Start and refine them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be moving it up (the programming) to a different degree,â&#x20AC;? Hanna commented. The skills and tools children will learn in these programs will aid in their being athletic for the rest of their lives, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will give kids confidence towards doing these different things (sports).â&#x20AC;? He feels the children will benefit greatly from this program, noting â&#x20AC;&#x153;watching my child play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four and a half and he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t jump â&#x20AC;&#x201C; some things we take for granted,â&#x20AC;? he explained. Saying a program like this for those with intellectual disabilities will mean so much.

Colton, smiles broadly while holding a soccer ball recently. Colton is four and a half years old and has Down Syndrome. Father Jonathan Hanna is launching two new programs in Brockville, April 7. The Special Olympics Canada programs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Active Start and FUNdamentals is for children with intellectual disabilities between the ages of two to 12. Parents, during the sessions will essentially be acting as trainers with their children. In Active Start they will play a more hands on role. Once children move on to the FUNdamentals program, parents will still be in attendance, but they will be able to step back and take on a more observing role in what is taking place. The curriculum, and detailed guide to what is taught each session, is provided by Special Olympics Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a really, really great program. There is nothing like it in this area for kids in these age groups,â&#x20AC;? Hanna noted. And while the weekly sessions will aid participants to learn these skills, it will also provide a social treat as well. What sparked Hannaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest in creating a program like this in Brockville, was watching a documentary on TSN about Special Olympics and the Active Start and FUNdamentals programs. His son at the time was one year old and so it grabbed his attention. At that point the two programs for youngsters were only available in British Columbia. He then did a little bit of research, made some local contacts with the Special Olympics program and is now moving forward with starting the program.

The only fee to sign up is $25 at time of registration. This fee is good for one year, he noted. The registration fee also registers participants with the Special Olympics program. Sessions will take place Sundays at the Bread of Life Dance Theatre (Boldt) Studio on King Street in Brockville. Registra-

tion is also taking place at this location, from 1 to 3 p.m., Sunday, April 7. Sessions for the most part will be inside at the studio, however as the weather warms up, sessions may move outdoors. The sessions themselves will take one hour each and parents will be participating with their children as well. The program

will run concurrently with the school year. The session beginning in April will end in June as the current school year comes to a close and will restart once again in September when the new school year begins. For further information, an email has been established for the program activestartbrockville@hotmail.com.

Area communities share what has gone wrong and many right things happening EMC News - The leaders of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s various municipalities got together last week to enjoy some breakfast and to discuss ways of invigorating the local economy. The third annual Mayorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Economic Development Update Breakfast, hosted by Augusta Township and held at the Grenville Snowmobile Club near Maynard, took place Friday, March 16, and was an opportunity for the mayors and reeves of area communities to share what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing rightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and wrongâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in their own jurisdictions. Host Mel Campbell, reeve of Augusta Township, spoke of the importance of regional cooperation and of the need for neighbouring municipalities to work together to further regional economic development. The mayor of Brockville, David Henderson, agreed that joint efforts were important, but went on to explain some of the challenges faced by his city in particular. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough job to do economic development in small rural areas,â&#x20AC;? he said. The mayor noted that the high Canadian dollar and the cost of labour is hampering the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industrial sector, and the ratio of manufacturing to commercial enterprise in Brockville has changed so much that the city is becoming more of a service-oriented Photo by CONAN de VRIES economy.

course, said Henderson, Brockville officials are doing their best to take full advantage of these changes and are attempting to reposition the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to focus our efforts on changing our economy,â&#x20AC;? said the mayor. Not far away, in North Grenville, the economy has already changedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; dramaticallyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and for the better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;North Grenville continues to grow, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see that growth slowing down any time soon,â&#x20AC;? said David Gordon, mayor of North Grenville. Residential growth in the community has exploded, with more than 300 housing starts last year alone, and despite the entrance into the local market of large new employers, 80 per cent of the new jobs created have resulted from the expansion of existing businesses. Next to speak was Ann Weir, the economic development manager with the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville, who outlined some of the efforts the Counties were making to foster cooperation amongst municipalities. She also pointed out the importance of spreading the word throughout the province that there exists a wealth of business opportunities in Leeds and Grenville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to find a more effective and efficient way of becoming stronger in the marketplace,â&#x20AC;? said Weir. A representative of the Grenville Community Futures Development Corporation was also on hand to ex-

plain how that organization has contributed to the expansion of the local economy. Steve Lefave, GCFDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new business loans officer, went over some of the impressive numbers achieved by his predecessor in the positionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Michael Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Keefeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who distributed more than $800,000 in loans to 24 different businesses last year alone, contributing to the retention or creation of nearly 80 local jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, I can deliver the same numbers,â&#x20AC;? said Lefave. With all the speeches deliveredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and eggs eatenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;emcee Wendy Onstein, manager of the Leeds and Grenville Small Business Enterprise Center, concluded on a confident note. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the sense that economic development is alive and well in Leeds-Grenville, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been sleeping.â&#x20AC;?

tragic. “Battlefield Petticoats” is engaging and endearing from beginning to end, as one person said at the Gananoque premiere “I could have laughed louder … some of it was so funny, but I didn’t want to embarrass my friends.” Dunleavy is a word connoisseur – one who loves the natural music of language and the spell it puts on the listener. She has been a performer for close to 30 years. During that time she has performed not only within Canada but also Singapore, Scotland, and England. From January to June 2010 Deborah was Storyteller in Residence for the Arthur Child Heritage Museum in Gananoque. She recently released “The Crystal” a storytelling CD featuring over 100 minutes of stories from episodes produced for North Country Public Radio in upper New York State. This most entertaining event will be held on Wednesday April 10, at 2 p.m. in the Carriage Hall of the Brockville Museum.

EMC Events - Welcome to Widow Wilson’s Tavern. The year is 1813 and the wars have been raging for over a year. Widow Wilson hears all the gossip from soldiers, sailors, travelers and passersby. And she is a fine host, willing to offer you lodgings and a pint of her home-made spruce beer. Meet Abigail Stone, the mill owner’s wife who was wounded by one of Forsyth’s militiamen. Hear Anne Provost’s tragic description of how her paramour fell in battle. Delight in Alicia Cockburn’s complaints of the hardships she must endure as an officer’s wife. In this one-woman storytelling performance written and performed by the always entertaining Deborah Dunleavy she expertly steps into the heart and soul of each character. Dressed in period costume she shares the hardships and challenges of women during the Wars of 1812. Through story and song Dunleavy weaves a fine dramatic tapestry that moves from comedic to

together to eat a meal, experience worship and have fun within a church context. Messy Church was started by Lucy Moore in Britain and there are now over 500 Messy Churches in the UK. The first Canadian Messy Churches were begun in 2007. Nancy Rowe started MC in April 2007 at St. George’s Georgetown ON and Sam Rose started MC at St. Michael’s in St. John’s NL in September 2007. Since that time, Messy Churches have sprung up in almost every province across Canada. Rain barrels capture and store rain water collected from roofs through downspouts. They provide chlorine-free and fluoridefree water which is ideal for flowers, vegetables, lawns, shrubs and trees. Collected water has a number of other uses including washing cars, cleaning floors, laundry and

Cold therapy laser treatment for companion animals explained ment can be seen within hours of treatment in acute cases and within three - six treatments in more chronic cases. It is used to treat such issues as hot spots, ear infections, cystitis, surface wounds, lick granulomas, soft tissue swelling resulting from injury or accidents, arthritis, frostbite, fracture repair and on post-surgery incisions to speed up repair, as well as decrease pain and inflammation. It is also used in cases with nerve damage to speed up healing. Further investigation is ongoing into its ability to help with organ regeneration after sustained trauma or

damage. Not to be confused with surgical lasers, cold therapy lasers have a photochemical, biochemical effect on cells which differs from the heating or photothermal effect of surgical lasers used for making incisions. Laser stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points without the use of needles providing musculoskeletal pain relief. Laser therapy has a direct effect on immunity status by stimulating immunoglobulines and lymphocytes. Cold therapy laser is used successfully

in the treatment of high performing sports athletes allowing them to return to competition faster and has been around for quite some time but it is only in the past year that proper therapeutic guidelines have been created for companion animals allowing for the correct dosing and treatment of various conditions. These guidelines are directly responsible for the remarkable results that have been seen following its correct use. It has provided relief to animals suffering from painful conditions such as cystitis, ear infections and those crippled with arthritis

allowing them to move comfortably with reduced or no pain medication, it has healed ulcers on rabbit feet so that they can hop around pain free within hours of treatment, it has saved limbs that would be lost secondary to edema and frostbite, and has reduced post-surgical inflammation to a remarkable extent especially following orthopedic procedures. For more information regarding laser therapy contact Brockville Animal Hospital at 613-345 3401 or check out their website at www.brockvilleanimalhospital.net under Companion Therapy Laser.

EMC Lifestyle - A dream come true…. can you imagine the excitement of being able to speed up an animal’s natural ability to heal itself? Even better yet, how about a treatment that is pain-free, surgery-free and drug-free? Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Yet this is precisely what cold therapy laser has to offer. Cold therapy laser is a treatment that operates on the application of red and infrared light over an anatomical area to improve and speed up wound and soft tissue healing, as well as to provide relief from acute and chronic pain.

PetValu helping Sheba’s Haven raise funds for canine palliative care By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC Events - Joe Cocker, Jazz and Jack, are just some of the dogs who have found their way to Sheba’s Haven near Inverary. “Jack was a stray from Timmins,” says Catherine Pokrywa. “Turns out he is a healthy boy who had dental problems and a tumour that needed to be removed from his eye. He is in the process of being adopted. “We have a 12 year old yellow lab named Jazz. He has a Mast Cell Tumour which needs to be removed but we’re waiting until he

loses some weight. “Joe Cocker, is approximately eight years old, was a stray, who came into the Haven in October. The shelter tried several rescues, but no one came through for him and his time was getting limited. He is completely blind and had a growth in his mouth we thought might be cancerous but was not… If it was not for donations, I would not have been able to take him in and find him a loving new home.” So many dogs are in need of palliative care as they get older and lose their health, there just isn’t

room for them all. But that will never stop Pokrywa from doing all she possibly can to help them. PetValu in Gananoque is proud to once again offer their help to Sheba’s Haven through their annual Easter Photo Day. “We fully support Sheba’s Haven,” says Lisa Gatt, manager of PetValu in Gananoque. Sheba’s Haven is a small palliative care facility for dogs located between Highway 15 and Battersea Road, a registered charity that looks after about 10 dogs at a time on a three-acre lot. Founded by Pokry-

wa at her home, there is plenty of room for them to get out and play, hunt for interesting things in the grass, or just bask in the sun. They receive the best in veterinary care, special diets, and the use of holistic and other natural treatments to guarantee that their remaining time is as comfortable and rewarding as possible. To participate, just drop by PetValu at 711 King St. E. in Gananoque between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on March 23 and have your picture taken. You don’t need to bring a pet, and all proceeds go to the Res-

cue facility. A 4”x6” portrait costs $5. In addition, Ziggy Argue will be selling her cookies and jams to help the cause. Known throughout the area for her fine baking, this is a treat that’s hard to resist. To learn more about Sheba’s Haven Rescue, or to make a donation, please go to http://www.petfinder. com/shelters/shebashaven.html. You can also contact Pokrywa at 613-353-6923 or e-mail at shebashaven@kingston.net. To learn more about the Photo Day, contact PetValu at 613-382-2626.

Homeowners paying for lack of regulation in water heater rental industry, study says EMC News - Resolving issues with water heaters, the second most frequent complaint received by the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services, is the topic of a new study from the Homeowner Protection Centre (HPC). The study, Domestic Hot Water Tanks and Other Equipment: A Consumer Perspective, suggests that without the necessary information to assess new choices and without safeguards and penalties to address market misconduct, homeowners who rent their water heaters are left to pay higher prices and endure poorer service. Much of the report focuses on the distinct market in Ontario, where 6 of 10 homeowners rent the units. “Until the late 1990s, Ontario consumers never had choice in the wa-

ter heater rental market, but when choice was made available they were not always provided with crucial information to make appropriate decisions. Today, consumers often lack details of their rental agreement or contract, leaving them unprepared to make choices, for example when approached by door-to-door salespeople pitching new rental contracts,” stated Michael Lio, Executive Director of the Homeowner Protection Centre. This was demonstrated in HPC’s survey, where almost a third of surveyed homeowners who rent their water heaters did not know their rental company or their monthly rental rate. While these issues appear to be unique to Ontario, they are important and cautionary les-

sons for any market in any province. “Increased competition generally leads to lower prices and improved service for homeowners. Without proper safeguards, however, newly opened markets can leave consumers vulnerable to misrepresentation, fraud, and dishonesty,” Lio continued. “With water heaters in Ontario, the push for competition has not led to the promised benefits.” As a consequence, water heater complaints have jumped to the number two spot of the Top 10 Complaints at the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services. Opening a market to competition must strongly consider consumer information needs and consumer protection. Recourse to the courts

tion of products is required. Stronger enforcement of regulations that includes financial penalties and/or revoked licenses for companies that fail to comply with regulations is needed. What is clear from the Homeowner Protection Centre’s study is that water heater rental competition needs to refocus on the consumer to make lower pricing and improved customer service a reality. The HPC has provided a copy of its study to the newly appointed Ontario Minister of Consumer Services, Tracy MacCharles.

SAFETY TIPS

as redress for wronged consumers may not be the best solution. HPC suggests changes to the regulations that affect the industry. The changes would address three aspects of the marketplace based on the identified homeowner issues: 1. Changes to the regulation of door-to-door sales, that currently includes a 10 day cooling-off period, but that should also include a code of conduct. The code of conduct should require mandatory plain language information disclosure that describes monthly pricing, buy-out costs and exit fees, and terms and conditions. 2. Barriers to switching to new suppliers must be addressed. Barriers to competition include high contract buy-out and exit fees and restrictive appliance return depot hours of operation. As well, practices where consumer calls to cancel contracts are dropped or put on hold must also be addressed. 3. Enhanced consumer protection to address misapplica-

“By enhancing legal protection for electronic agreements of purchase and sale, both consumers and realtors can benefit from technology that makes real estate transactions more efficient, accessible and secure.” Electronic agreements of purchase and sale improve transaction efficiency by reducing the time required to complete the deal. “All parties can access agreements through a central portal, eliminating the need to fax, scan and email documents back and forth,” said Abraham. In addition to improving transaction efficiency, the technology is also accessible. “Buyers and sellers can access agreements of purchase and sale through an internet connection anywhere in the world,” said Abraham. “The technology saves both realtors and consumers time and money.” “OREA would like to thank MPP

Todd Smith for reintroducing this bill,” said Abraham. “It has broad support amongst all parties and we urge its speedy passage.” The Ontario Real Estate Association represents 55,000 brokers and salespeople who are members of the provinces 41 real estate boards. OREA serves its members through a wide variety of publications, educational programs and special services. The association provides all real estate licensing courses in Ontario.

EMC News - The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) applauds proposed legislation introduced recently at Queen’s Park that, if passed, would facilitate the use of electronic agreements of purchase and sale of real estate. Currently, Ontario realtors are reluctant to use electronic agreements of purchase and sale because they are exempt from the legal protections afforded by the Electronic Commerce Act, 2000. The legislation comes in the form of a private members bill sponsored by MPP Todd Smith (Prince EdwardHastings). It was first introduced by Smith and Liberal MPP (now Minister of Labour) Yasir Naqvi in May 2012. “Deleting the exemption from the Act will remove a cumbersome piece of red tape for the real estate industry and it won’t cost the province a dime,” said Ron Abraham, OREA President.

Three Ottawa Rotarians, left to right, Ken Sparks, Jen Bosworth and Vaughn N. McKinney presented Rotary at Work to the local Rotary Clubs at their regular breakfast meeting, in hope of having them become part of this initiative. This program encourages employers to acknowledge and hire the mentally and physically challenged individuals in our community. Too many myths about hiring disabled individuals have circulated and need to be dispelled.

thusiasm, compassion and energy to the workplace day after day. The result that employers are noticing is that employee turnover is lower and these individuals are safer on the job, they have above-average attendance and display a stronger work ethic than their non-disabled counterparts. This concept started in the Whitby when Rotarian Mark Wafer and his wife Valerie hired Clint Sparling who has an intellectual disability. The Wafers own seven Tim Hortons franchises and today, there more than 50 people with disabilities employed there. Mark knew what he was doing and he knows what it feels like as he had hit barriers in his life from being born partially deaf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Disability, it shares no boundaries,â&#x20AC;? said Vaughn McKinney, owner, The Parliament Cleaning Group, â&#x20AC;&#x153;of race, religion or social economic condition. It will probably affect each person in this room somehow. It can happen at birth, through a serious illness or with an accident that puts individuals in the disability category.â&#x20AC;? McKinney said that the myths that are shared throughout the various business sectors have to be addressed and dismissed as untruths. From a Rotary at Work handout pertaining to Dispelling the Myths, it was stated that 90 per cent of workers who have a disability scored average or above average in performance ratings. As well, most job accommodations cost less than $500 and hiring workers who have disabilities can adversely af-

fect an employerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WSIB premiums, which is false. Another positive story is about Jeremy Robin. Robin has an intellectual disability and all he wanted was to earn a living for himself and his ill mother. Robin was hired at The Parliament Cleaning Group and McKinney agrees that Robin is one of his best employees. He cleans carpets which is physically demanding and he is hoping to get his driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license soon. As for Jen Bosworth, manager of Employment Supports, she assists in pairing up employer and disabled employees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People with disabilities want to be engaged in their community; they want to have a job they can be proud of and they want economic stability,â&#x20AC;? stated Bosworth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People with disabilities can make a contribution, they want to work. They want to be contributing and to be a taxpayer.â&#x20AC;? Bosworth, McKinney and Sparks pointed out that they have just started giving presentations to Rotary groups and hope to do many more. These three individuals are very committed to spreading the word and assisting those individuals who are disabled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal today is very simple,â&#x20AC;? said McKinney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we want you to do, if you are a person who has the decision making ability in an organization for hiring or you have family or friends that have that ability to hire, simply ask them to consider hiring an individual with a disability.â&#x20AC;? R0021978412_0321

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With labour shortages becoming a reality in Canada, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a whole unemployed workforce that could address some of these issues. At a joint breakfast meeting on Wednesday, March 6, both Rotary Clubs of Brockville welcomed the Rotary at Work Ottawa Committee of Jen Bosworth, Vaughn N. McKinney and Ken Sparks to talk about the Rotary at Work initiative. Other guests included those who work with physically or intellectually challenged individuals in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rotary at Work is the key in allowing us to challenge our workforce to be able to use people (disabled) who have this stigma,â&#x20AC;? said chair of Rotary at Work in Ottawa Ken Sparks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can be productive citizens in our community. We have identified the fact that there is a shrinking workforce.â&#x20AC;? Sparks believes that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an untapped labour force among the disabled who are waiting and willing to work. During the presentation, it was revealed that 16 per cent of the Canadian population has a disability. It may seem low, but these are people who want to work and not be a burden on the economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kinds of stories we have heard (employers hiring disabled workers) across the country is very, very encouraging,â&#x20AC;? indicated Sparks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The employers are very satisfied.â&#x20AC;? According to Sparks, these employees bring their desire to work, their en-

Car maintenance: a year-round contract Experts recommend changing the engine oil and checking the battery connections for signs of corrosion every three months. You should also check the other liquid levels at this time (brakes, transmission, power steering, and windshield washer fluids). Once every six months you should change your windshield wiper blades, check the condition of your tires, and ensure that your spare tire is adequately inflated, which is something that is often forgotten. Another often forgotten thing to do is make sure that headlights, brake lights, and signal lights are working well. A biannual check should also be made of shock absorbers, muffler, and for wear in the braking system.

It’s fine to do some of your own car maintenance, but don’t forget to follow a fixed schedule.

It is a proven fact that a good maintenance routine prolongs the life of your car. But what does regular maintenance really entail? What needs to be checked and when? Following are some guidelines that will help you set up a good maintenance schedule for your vehicle. First of all, it’s a good idea to plan a fixed schedule and to list everything that needs to be checked on a monthly, three-monthly, or biannual basis. For example, it is advisable to carry out a monthly check of tire pressure, oil and liquid coolant levels, and belts and lines. The last two things should be checked carefully to ensure that no cracks have appeared. Of course, if there are signs of wear, they must be replaced immediately.


All you need to know about caring for the leather in your car Formerly a luxury for only the richest car owners, leather is becoming much more common in car interiors today. The quality of leather seat coverings and other leather trims differ greatly from one model to another, but their upkeep is fairly standardized. Here are a few useful tips. Leather is the most delicate surface inside a car. Two crucial and inseparable steps are required to keep it well maintained and ensure its durability: cleaning and polishing. Cleaning leather requires using a special product specifically designed for the task. If the surfaces are very dirty you could always clean them first with mild soap and water. Incidentally, water does not damage car-quality leather. If the leather is light coloured, clean it more frequently, perhaps

every month or two, depending on how quickly it tends to get dirty. Two or three cleanings every year should be sufficient for darker leathers. Other than that, your car’s leather surfaces would benefit from being wiped down as often as possible with a damp cloth in order to get rid of any residues that could wear it out prematurely. These residues fall into two categories: dirt, including dust, small pebbles, and sand, which can eventually penetrate and damage the leather; and sweat, whose oils can dry and crack leather over time. Once the leather has been thoroughly cleaned, apply a protective cream to return the leather to its original softness and suppleness. Keep in mind that the dryer the climate in which you live, the more often the cleaning and polishing of leather is recommended.

Leather is the most delicate surface inside your car, no matter what its quality.

Your tires have just been changed and you’re ready to hit the road in total safety. Good for you! But did you take the time to check the air pressure in each of your tires? This is one of those little things that we all know we should do but never get around to. Yet taking a moment to do it is one of the most important elements of road safety that a driver can do. Maintaining the correct air pressure in your tires is as crucial as having the engine maintained on a regular basis. It has even been proven that it is more economical in the long run to check air pressure than to maintain your car’s engine in perfect running order! Why is that? Proper air pressure reduces wear on the tire’s tread, substantially reduces gas consumption, and improves the road holding capabilities of your car, which reduces your risk of having an accident. ONCE A MONTH Tire pressure should be checked once a month. It is also recommended that tire pressure be checked when tires are rotated or during oil changes or randomly, when you fill up at the gas station. It is also important to check the pressure in the spare tire. After all, you don’t want it to be unusable just when you really need it. Refer to the manufacturer’s owner’s manual to find out the tire pressure recommended for your vehicle. It has even been proven that checking air pressure regularly will help you save money in the long term.

Three types of car waxes are available on the market. Each has their advantages and disadvantages.

Typically, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find three main types of wax on store shelves: pastes, liquids, or sprays. Each has their advantages and disadvantages. First of all, paste car waxes are the ones used by car care professionals. This type of wax gives the best results and improves the appearance of the paint. However, applying and polishing this wax requires a great deal of time and care. And even after all that buffing, the wax will only last for around ten weeks. Liquid waxes are the most popular with home users. They are relatively easy to apply and last for about six months, which means that this is a job that can be done twice a year, once in the spring and again just before the winter. On the downside, the shine produced is less spectacular than paste car waxes and it also takes a while to dry. Spray waxes are the quickest method of applying a wax and dry very quickly as well. While they are certainly not as durable as other types of wax, they are a good option for someone wanting fast results and ease of application. Whether you apply your own car wax or take your wheels to a manual carwash for the royal treatment, your car will be sparkling nicely on those sunny spring days.

Food and beer pairing event at the Brockville Museum serves as fundraiser April 5 EMC Events - Celebrate spring’s arrival by joining in for a beer and food-pairing fundraising event at the Brockville Museum on Friday, April 5, 7 p.m. Beau’s All Natural Brewing of Vankleek Hill will be on hand to offer a selection of five of their superb brews. For those who have not had the opportunity to sample their wares they are in for a treat as their reputation for quality beer continues to soar. Those in attendance will have a chance to talk to one of their representatives and learn about their unique brewing methods. For those who enjoy spending too much time in their kitchens, this year the event will emphasize the pairing of fine brews with foods that best compliment them. Like wines, the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) differences in the flavour of various beers can have a profound influence on the taste of the dish you are trying. Five local restaurants, The Barley Mow, The Brockberry, Buds on the Bay, Kazuko, and The Mill will create a variety of dishes for those in attendance to sample with each delicious beer. All of this will take place in the cozy and in-

timate atmosphere of the Brockville Museum. Celtic and folk music will be provided by musicians from local group Fiddlers Plus. There will be a draw for a spectacular gift basket as well as a variety of door prizes. Funds raised at this event are designated for the Open Drawer Project. Thousands of photographs and artifacts related to the families of Brockville, the places they have lived, worked, and played for over 200 years are in the museum’s collection. The museum wants to “open our drawers” by acquiring software that will allow people far and wide significantly improved access to the collection both on-line and in person. Please support this project by coming to this fundraiser joining in from 7 – 9 p.m. on April 5. Tickets are only $35 per museum member and $40 for not-yet members and are available at the Brockville Museum. To reserve tickets members of the public are welcome to drop by the museum, call 613-342-4397, or email us at museum@ brockville.com. Space is limited so don’t delay.

MOVIE: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone STARRING: Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin and Jim Carrey DIRECTOR: Don Scardino RATING: PG EMC Entertainment - The Incredible Burt Wonderstone wasn’t bad. It wasn’t good either. In fact it wasn’t really anything. It’s just kind of there in a state of perfect mediocrity. Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) headline the biggest magic show in Vegas. Their magical friendship began when they were kids, but the friendship, like the act, has grown sour. Anton is under appreciated and Burt’s become a colossal jerk. While Burt and Anton are doing the same old show Steve Gray (Jim Carrey) is wowing, shocking, and disturbing audiences on the streets of Vegas. So they try to freshen up the act, but it all falls apart. They split up and Burt finds himself unemployed and penniless. Burt hits rock bottom. He’s forgotten why he got into magic in the first place. If he’s going to get back on top he’s going to have to find the magic again. Fortunately he gets a little help from his former assistant Jane (Olivia Wilde), and legendary magician Rance Holloway (Allan Arkin). With their help Burt might be able to pull off his biggest trick yet; a comeback. I’m not really sure what to say about The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. There isn’t anything about it that stands out as glaringly wrong or offensive. The story moves from A to B in a logical order, and all the actors deliver their lines and hit their marks. Yet there isn’t anything about it that stands out as brilliantly funny either. It’s a difficult thing to put

my finger on, but it seems the film attempts to walk the line between an absurd comedy and a heartfelt relationship piece, and the two canceled each other out. There are mildly amusing moments, but no laugh-out-loud moments. There are some heartwarming moments, but nothing to truly move an audience. The whole thing just falls flat. I figured with a cast like this you couldn’t go wrong, and it didn’t go wrong, it just didn’t go right. The very thought of Steve Carell as an over-thetop Vegas stage magician is funny. Alan Arkin is just the man to play a retired yet legendary stage magician. Olivia Wilde is who I’d pick to be the beautiful assistant who dreams of becoming a magician. There’s no one better to play the second fiddle Anton Marvelton than Steve Buscemi, and Jim Carrey is the perfect person to parody the current crop of shock magicians. It’s a good cast, but it doesn’t work. It’s hard to say if they suffer from a lack of chemistry, or if it is their delivery, or simply the material they have to work with. I suspect it is a little of everything, and like the rest of the film they are all kind of flat. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone may not be good, and it may not be bad, but if it isn’t anything it isn’t worth your time. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

We are so excited about this year’s Easterrific!” In view of the Easter events, services and the Walk of the Cross taking place on Good Friday, March 29, the community churches felt that it also important to celebrate with activities geared specifically with young children in mind. So on Saturday, March 30, Easterrific is being offered to families. For more information about Easterrific, call Greg Houldcroft at 613498-6270 or email greg@houldcroft. com.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Students from Thousand Islands Secondary School (TISS) will get a taste of Italy this month as they head to the boot of Europe for a 10day trip to soak up Italian culture. The trip is being led by Chef Peter Yerdon, who is taking 11 students to enjoy authentic Italian cuisine and to see everything from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to the city of Pompeii. Many of the students going on the trip have studied with Yerdonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tourism and hospitality program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiential learning at its best,â&#x20AC;? said Yerdon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gets students out of the classroom touching, feeling, and tasting the things that we talk about in class. They will be able to see (the famous Michelangelo statue) David, walk through the Sistine Chapel and touch the bricks.

Heritage Christmas Festival seeks volunteers EMC Events - After eight successful years offering an alternative to a contemporary, commercialized Christmas, the organizers of A Country Christmas Remembered are seeking additional volunteers to continue this family-focused local festival. To learn more about the festival, visit: www.acountrychristmas.ca then come to the first public organizing meeting of 2013 on Wednesday, March 27 at 7 p.m. in the Town Council Chambers, Sloan Street, Spencerville A Country Christmas Remembered originated in the historic Spencerville Mill, featuring a Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shopping Emporium, a fruit cake baking workshop and wreath-making. The kidsonly shopping concept is still a major attraction, with elves helping shoppers to choose from a variety of very lowpriced gifts (donated by local suppliers) while parents enjoy coffee and musical entertainment. From there, with the involvement of many community organizations, the festival expanded into venues throughout the village of Spencerville attracting visitors from an increasingly wide area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Creating an event focused on our

Quinn would fit very nicely into any home

EMC News - Quinn was a pregnant stray who arrived at her rescuerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home where she was befriended and given a haven to deliver and raise her kittens. Sadly, in the long run they were unable to keep her so she was brought to us. She is large and white with a bit of tabby on her head and an unusual tail â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it hangs down â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no doubt the result of injury, or a birth defect. This doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interfere with her daily routines at all. She has a bit of excess girth around her middle, all the better to keep your lap warm as she is very obliging with her friendliness and just loves to curl up on one of our laps when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a break. She is a sweet girl who feels very secure around people and would fit nicely into any home environment. To meet Quinn please visit the Gananoque & District Humane Society at 85 Hwy. 32 just north of Gananoque and the 401.. Phone 613-382-1512.

heritage and the values of old-fashioned family fun is important to this community and to modern families,â&#x20AC;? says former festival Chair Sheila Fawcett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We aim to create a sense of community and respect for the past that many people are looking for.â&#x20AC;? With over 20 activities offered each year for adults and children of all ages, visitor satisfaction is high. This year organizers hope to enhance the festival with more do-it-yourself crafts, agricultural related programming and live music. Because it takes many hands and lots of ingenuity to sustain an annual event the original core group is keen to involve more people with fresh ideas to keep the festival moving forward. If you enjoy testing your creativity, would like to meet new people and work with a team of community-minded people this is the time to take on a new and interesting challenge. For newcomers to the area, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ideal way to make new friends. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your opportunity to be one of the more than 100 volunteers, local businesses, partners and event sponsors who contribute to the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success.

EMC News - As Epilepsy Awareness Month nears its end, Purple Day for Epilepsy on March 26 will be its grand finale. This important day is celebrated annually and is dedicated to raising awareness about epilepsy. The colour purple, more specifically lavender, is internationally recognized as the official colour for epilepsy. The lavender flower is associated with solitude, which is also representative of the feelings of isolation many people affected by epilepsy and seizure disorders often feel. As such, Purple Day is aimed at helping individuals living with this condition know that they are not alone. The 2013 Purple Day for Epilepsy

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Over 100 individuals, children, grandchildren, parents and grandparents toured the Donnaville Holsteins in Lyn with the assistance of the Leeds County Dairy Producers last week. This 4-H farm, owned by Richard and Susanne Shane are used to having school students and other groups visit, so they are familiar with farm tours. According to dairy producer Kelvin Kerr, the Brockville and Area YMCA had contacted the Leeds County Dairy Producers last year to consider an event of this type. Unfortunately it was too late to organize for the March Break, so it was considered for this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We agreed to do it this year,â&#x20AC;? said Kerr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the reasons why we agreed to do this is because there is a generation out there that does not have a clue (about farming). Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a disconnect between rural and urban and we want to reconnect. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what is driving us to do this.

EMC Sports – Given their final places in the standings, fans knew this was going to be a closely-fought series. But after an epic triple-overtime thriller in Game 2, a 3-2 Brockville Braves victory over the Cornwall Colts, this could be one for the ages. After dropping the best-of-seven quarterfinal series opener last Thursday night in Cornwall 5-2, the Braves and Colts locked horns 24 hours later in front of close to 1,200 fans at the Brockville Memorial Centre. Joey House, acquired by the Braves from the Kemptville 73’s at the trade deadline, proved to be the hero, scoring his second of the post season at 5:03 of the third extra period, off a pass from Griffen Molino, to give the home side the win and tying the series 1-1. Trailing 2-1 late in the second period, Zack Todd of the Braves had tied the game 2-2 on the power play at the 19:13 mark. The unassisted goal would be the last shot to beat either Colts goalie Jordan Piccolino or Braves netminder Andrew Pikul for the next 65:50 of play. The Colts had emerged from the first period with a 2-1 lead on goals by Jake Bannister and CCHL scoring champion Michael Pontarelli. Molino, who much later would assist on House’s game winner, responded for the Braves in the first with assists going David Ferreira and Ben Blasko. Both goalies were terrific this night, Pikul earning the win with a 46-save performance. Piccolino took the loss despite making 42 stops. While that win tied the series 1-1, the Colts retook command in the bestof-seven with another narrow victory at home on Sunday, 2-1 – in regulation. Mitch Zion’s late third period goal snapped a 1-1 tie and propelled Cornwall to a 2-1 series lead. After a scoreless first period, Griffen

The opening game in Cornwall last Thursday, March 14, a three-goal second period proved the difference as the Colts skated to a 5-2 win in the series opener. After Brandon Cole had given the Braves an early 1-0, from Chris Roll and Shane Riddell, Pontarelli and two

by Lawson MacDonald put the home side up 3-1 after 40 minutes. Joey House’s power play goal brought the Braves back to within one 4:57 into the third, but the Colts Kevin Hope restored the two-goal advantage just two minutes later, then put it away with an empty netter with 1:18 left in regulation. The series continued with Game 4 in Brockville on Tuesday night with Game 5 tonight (Thursday) back in Cornwall. If a sixth game is necessary, it returns to the Brockville Memorial Centre tomorrow (Friday, March 22) starting at 7:30 p.m. A seventh and deciding game would take place on Sunday night at the Ed Lumley Arena in Cornwall. Puck drop would be 7 p.m.

Molino had given the Braves a 1-0 lead. The unassisted shorthanded goal came at the 14:25 mark. But Stephen Johnson had the game squared at 1-1 before the end of the frame, assisted by Carl Belizario and Lawson MacDonald. Once again, the goalies were solid. Colts’ Jordan Piccolino stopped 32 of 33 shots while the Brave’s Andrew Pikul was 37 for 39.

Carter and Chillson lead Blackhawks to third straight win EMC Sports - For the first time this season the Island City Blackhawks are riding a three game winning streak thanks in part to their 10-5 thrashing of the Gananoque Gryphons last Saturday night at the Youth Arena before a capacity crowd. The Blackhawks havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tasted this kind of success since they closed out last season with seven straight wins. Despite having eight of their 12 skaters competing in the first annual Prescott Old Timers tournament the day before where they had to play three games, the Hawks came out with a lot of jump. The Hawks were seeking revenge on their Gananoque counterparts who when they last met in Gananoque Feb. 2, literally stole a win from the locals. Well the Brock-Vegas lads werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about to let that happen again, they hoped. The game also marked the return of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Ageless Wonderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Peter Culp who has been out since Dec. 16 with what the team is calling a double dose of an upper body injury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel great and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to be back with these guys. I hear they are putting me back on defence tonight, should be good,â&#x20AC;? Culp stated to the press before the game. Culpie didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disappoint either, as a defenceman he was often the first Blackhawk in to initiate the forecheck which had his teammates chuckling. The 10-5 score wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really as close as it sounds, the Blackhawks dominated until midway through the third when they seemed to be running out of gas. That gave the visitors numerous glorious scoring opportunities and they cashed in on three of them to close the gap. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Velvet Fogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rob Carter and call up Art Chillson led the Hawks attack as they each rippled the corded pipe palaces three times. In the Feb. 2 game in Gan the game remained scoreless until late into the second period, ah that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen in this one. The Gryphons opened the scoring less than a minute into the game and it definitely woke up the Hawks. The Hawks scored minutes later to tie things at 1-1 after one before they unleashed an all out offensive assault in the second period.

The Hawks used a seven goal explosion to take full control of the game as they brought a commanding 8-2 lead into the third period. Gryphons body guard of the braided bullhouse, Josh Kane, was under a heavy seige throughout the second as the Hawks applied the pedal to the metal approach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Josh single handedly beat us the last time we played these guys. But tonight we had most of our regular guys back in the line up. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t when we were in Gan. When we ice our full team we usually play pretty good. Tonight was a good example of that,â&#x20AC;? Blackhawk management stated outside the jubilant locker room. Veteran defenceman Fred â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bubblesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dunnington attributes the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning streak to a commitment from the forwards to backcheck more dili-

gently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last three games you could see our forwards trying to get back and help us out more. Picking up their third guy on the rush makes our job a whole lot easier,â&#x20AC;? Dunnington explained at his stall to the mob of reporters surrounding him. As for the fatigue factor in this contest, it was quite obvious the team was playing on fumes in the dying minutes of the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh yeah for sure, we were playing on pure adrenalin, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four games in two days,â&#x20AC;? said the foggy one Carter at his stall, which by the way was hard to find due to the heavy fog that rolled in. Besides Carter and Chillson, who led the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Scorpio Lineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with their three goals apiece. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My Generationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quartet was reassembled and they all contributed with a goal each. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The

Rookieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jordy Whiteland and his uncle Daryl as well as Trevor Murray and his uncle Jeff â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youngbloodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; June all scored for the Hawks in this one. Prescott Old Timers Tournament The Blackhawks participated in the first annual Prescott Old Timers tournament last Friday in Prescott and came away with three straight losses. They lost their opening game 3-2 in a heartbreaker against the hosts. In their second game they played the 20 something Prescott Row and were clobbered 6-0 before overcoming a 4-0 deficit only to lose 4-3 to the Cardinal Old Timers in their third and final game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough trying to compete against these younger teams but there was a time when we won our fair share of tournaments throughout Eastern Ontario and Northern New York. We won

12 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; side tournaments in our day, the last one coming in Gananoque back in 09. Our guys had some fun and the ribbing in the dressing room makes it all worthwhile,â&#x20AC;? management said after the tournament was done. Derek â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Staffordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; June scored the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only two goals in the first game while young Whiteland, Murray and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;KFC Kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Josh Brayton all replied for the Hawks in their last game. The Blackhawks have a tough weekend coming up and if they are to extend their current three game winning streak, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to earn it. They play the two strong Morrisburg teams, first of all they host the Flamingos Saturday night at the Youth Arena starting at 9 p.m., they will then charter out and head to Morrisburg for a matinee tilt with the Chubbs late Sunday morning.

Senior skaters perform as a line during one of the many splendid performances put on by members of the Spencerville Figure Skating Club as part of the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual year-end show last weekend.

Champions female self-defence clinic provides important information EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fourteen women learned ways to fend off an attacker recently during the second annual Champions for Kids Foundation Female Self-Defence Clinic. During a 90-minute session at Vanier Public School, Sensei Elaine Mason, of the Brockville YMCA Karate Club, taught the women practical self-defence moves that will keep them safe in case of attack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really about helping them gain some self-confidence that, if they find themselves in a situation, they have some basic, simple techniques they can use to avoid personal injury,â&#x20AC;? said Mason. The third-degree black belt began the clinic by discussing ways

that women can avoid dangerous situations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as approaching cars at an angle so you can see if anyone is underneath, and keeping a light on your key fob to scan the back seat of your car at night before getting in. She also discussed the need for women to keep a safe distance between themselves and strangers. In the second half of the clinic, Mason, Brockville City Police Constable Mike Grant, and volunteers with the YMCA club taught women the self-defence techniques, allowing them to practice them on pads, as well as on a volunteer dressed in a Redman protective suit. The women learned how to properly strike an attacker to disable them, how to break wrist locks, where to strike

an attacker for maximum impact, and grappling techniques to force an attacker off them if they are pinned to the ground. Mason also taught the women how to convert everyday items into defensive weapons. She showed the women how to wave a coat back and forth to keep an attacker at a safe distance, how high-heeled shoes can effectively injure an attacker, and how to use an umbrella to fend off an assailant. The clinic raised about $350 for the Upper Canada District School Board Champions for Kids Foundation.
