From left, Tabby Johnson, emcee; musician Sue Hamilton; and 88-year-old music lover Lois Creed of Dexter, NY, share a moment at the Firehall Theatre. Each has had their lives touched by cancer – Johnson was a personal friend of Gilda Radner, Hamilton lost her mother to the disease when she was only 17; and Creed has lost many family members to the disease. All of them share an interest in Gilda’s Club of Southeastern Ontario which will be opening its doors soon to those living with cancer. For more information on the club, or to donate, please go to www.gildasclubseo.org or contact them at 613-507-3333, 1-877-507-3335 or admin@gildasclubsoutheasternontario.org . These ladies were involved with the Open the Red Doors Concert held on April 6 in Gananoque.

EMC News - The First Port of Call Brockville – Tall Ships 1812 Tour has received a fourth grant associated with the programming for the upcoming festival scheduled for June 14-16. The Celebrate Ontario grant in the amount of $74,800 was announced last week in Kingston as part of a number of festival contributions to enhance programming for the 2013 tourist season. The financial news was well received by the Tall Ships Committee and adds another spoke of confidence in ensuring the quality of this oncein-a-lifetime event. The Brockville Tall Ships Event is touted as a bucket list attraction for 2013 which might never be presented in such magnitude in the future.

By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News – The vision of a Brockville Arts Council is now in clearer focus. On Saturday, April 6, more than 100 individuals – people who work in this field, both professionally and part-time – flowed into the Brockville Memorial Civic Centre to offer their support for the endeavour. A total of 11 members were voted onto the fledgling organization – Peter Dunn, Linda Chadwick, Linda Potter, Harold Hess, Cyndy Robinson, Anisa Lancione, Pat Johnson, Ian Farthing, Chris Coyea, Michael Sherman and Guy Wales. The two alternates are Carl Torode and Mary Hills who will automatically replace a member of the council should they be unable to fulfill their one-year commitment. “The Brockville Arts Council

Of those individuals who attended, a tremendous outpouring of encouragement was recognized through the number of memberships bought at $10 apiece. This number includes corporations. Membership included the right to vote for any candidate who put their name forward. The original driving forces behind this initiative have been Howard Alexander, Deborah Dunleavy, Al Torrance, Ed VanDenenden and Brockville Mayor David Henderson, who started talking about a Brockville Arts Council in October 2011. As Alexander took to the lectern he acknowledged one individual who put her heart and

tant economic driver in the City economy; and THAT Council develop a Cultural Plan to promote the Creative Economy for the City, focused on economic development and tourism; and

“It can support the work of arts professionals through advocacy and access to funding. It can support the development and promotion of the work of artists through special community projects and initiatives (i.e. workshops, special events, promotion and display opportunities or facilitate the sharing of experience and expertise among artists (networking). Encourage growth, experimentation, and excellence through awards and recognition.� HOWARD ALEXANDER

THAT the City and the Arts Task Force advertise for members from all areas of the arts community to serve on the Arts Council; and THAT Council support the creation of an at-arms-length, not-for-profit Arts Council which will have the capacity to access and distribute grant money currently unavailable to the City and its cultural institutions; and THAT Council continue to financially support the Cultural Institutions – the Public Library, the Museum, the Aquatarium, and the Arts Centre not only for their immense contributions to the quality of life, but also for their unique place as economic drivers in the City. According to the Conference Board of Canada, the Creative Sector is the fourth leading industry in Canada, employing 650,000 directly and 1.1 million people indirectly, generating 84.5 billion dollars per year for the Gross Domestic

Product. Alexander mentioned that the following areas of writing, publishing, film industry, broadcasting, recording and music publishing, performing arts, visual arts, crafts, photography, architecture, design, advertising, fine arts education, heritage (including museums) and libraries make up the creative economy. What the Brockville Arts Council can do for the City of Brockville and community is to help develop the economic potential of the arts and the Creative Economy; help establish Brockville as a creative, vibrant, diverse and competitive place to live; contribute to the quality of life; create a communications hub for the arts community and develop partnerships to enhance the creation of and access to all art forms. “What can the Brockville Arts Council do for you?� asked Alexander. “It can support the work of arts professionals through advocacy and access to funding. It can support the development and promotion of the work of artists through special community projects and initiatives (i.e. workshops, special events, promotion and display opportunities or facilitate the sharing of experience and expertise among artists (networking). Encourage growth, experimentation, and excellence through awards and recognition.� Once the candidates’ speeches had finished, Al Torrance re-read all the names of the individuals who let their names stand. In addition, Torrance encouraged people to make a donation towards a bursary for individuals who were financially unable to take part in the arts. The votes were cast. As the ballots were counted and council members announced, so was the bursary in the amount of $300. Alexander summed up this task force meeting very well. “An arts council is limited only by its vision, so, this arts council has unlimited potential,� said Alexander.

She sent out 500 emails, arranged interviews with the newspapers, radio stations and I don’t who how many thousands of people on Facebook, other kinds of media and direct telephone calls, you name it.

Concert season closes with a capella performance from Melodia Monday EMC Entertainment - The Gananoque Concert Association’s 2012-2013 season will close with a flourish with a concert given by Melodia Monday, one of this area’s best-known and most accomplished a capella choirs. They will be performing on Friday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Firehall Theatre in Gananoque, and will present a program with the variety which has delighted their audiences since they began in 2002. The highlight of the concert will be the world première of “Breathe on Usâ€?, composed by Dr. Mark Sirett, one of Canada’s most highly-regarded choral composers. Commissioned by Melodia Monday, it is a setting of a poem by the 19th Century Canadian poet Archibald Lampman, to whom nature was a primary

inspiration. “The piece infuses us with the feeling we might get while paddling alone in the early morning among the Thousand Islands, or on the lakes of the Frontenac Arch,� says Marnie Ross, one of the members of Melodia Monday. Melodia Monday was formed in 2002 as a group of 11 singers rehearsing around the kitchen table of a country home north of Gananoque. Since then it has grown to more than 20 members mainly from Kingston, Gananoque, Brockville and Maitland. It took part in the Kingston Kiwanis Music Festival in 2009 and won the Shelagh Leach prize for SATB choirs (Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass). In 2012, the Men of Melodia Monday performed before a full house in St. John’s United Church in Brockville as

such as art, music, drama and writing, in therapy, in education and in health. She is offering these workshops to the community in the hope of teaching people natural and God given ways to reduce stress, better manage negative emotions and improve not only your mood but also, your quality of life. Research is showing us how intricately our mental health and emotions are connected to our physical health. These workshops seek to teach participants inexpensive and effective methods to better manage stress and reduce negative emotions such as anger and depression. They are offered in a safe environment, where all are welcome and there is no judgement or fear. Learning to process our anger through drama, writing, movement or creating music and art, is not only highly effective, but it also helps us to dissipate the anger so that it is not turned inward, such as in the case of depression, or expressed inappropriately, usually at the sake of our loved ones. Many people think that anger is a negative emotion, however, it is not. We should

be angry about the atrocities that are happening to children across our globe. Anger moves us to action. It is how we express and process our anger that is the issue. A team from the Brockville area will be travelling to Ahero, Kenya in October, 2013. They are seeking donations of cash, soap, colourful wash cloths, feminine hygiene products and sports equipment such as soccer balls and badminton rackets and birdies. The team will be working at the orphanage and will personally deliver the donations to the over 500 children and widows living there. Donations can be made on their website at www.canadiansforthechildrenofafrica. com. Please register for the April workshop at www.artsforlifepsychotherapy.com/contact. Cost is $35 per person with $10 from every ticket sold going to the charity. The workshop will be held in the Community Room at the 1000 Islands Mall.

Calling All Red Rams

EMC News - Enjoy stress management through the arts – as explained in a workshop taking place this weekend. The workshop begins with aromatherapy, using scent, to calm and lift your mood. Mindfulness is practiced followed by prayer and meditation, which helps to calm and centre your focus on creating. Mindfulness exercises improve not only your memory, mood and quality of life, but research has shown that by practicing mindfulness, your immune system will be strengthened. Prayer is talking to God, while meditation is listening to God and there is opportunity for you to practice both before you experience how music can create art and how art can actually improve your mood. This is the fourth in a series of six workshops and takes place Saturday, April 13, from 1 until 3 p.m. Proceeds from these workshops, offered by Arts For Life Psychotherapy, will go directly to supporting the children and widows living at the Ebenezer Life Center in Ahero, Kenya.

KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE TEMP!

‘Growing Bigger to Give Better’ campaign kicks off at Operation Harvest Sharing As Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown noted, “This is amongst the busiest food banks in our region and with the facility in the state that it is today, we really need to improve it to help serve the community even better. I’m happy to see this and am proud of our government’s contribution.” Deplaedt mentioned that this is an amazing renovation for the volunteers as it will provide an incredible ability to help serve the clients much better. “Everybody wins,” said Garvin.

The warehouse currently used for storage will be totally demolished. The new warehouse will have a walk-in cooler and freezer, a dock with a wide receiving door to accommodate full pallets of food and level vinyl floors.

In addition, the building and warehouse will become more efficient regarding the leaky roof, old windows and the much needed insulation. “This is such a key renovation,” said Deplaedt. “Our needs are continuing to grow, we are serving more and more families every month and as a mother of two young boys, I know how important nutritious food is and this will allow us to provide fresh fruit and vegetables, frozen foods and meat, things that we previously have not been able to provide to our families. I think this is the most critical part of this project.” “A lot of these things we can get at little or no cost to us through the Association of Food Banks,” indicated president Reverend Myra Garvin. “The problem we were having is that we didn’t have the capacity and proper storage. Now we will have those things and a loading dock we can take full pallets of food. It means we can be a partner with others in the community like Loaves and Fishes on a regular basis.” Operation Harvest Sharing will be able to take larger quantities, serving as a distribution hub for this region, dividing up goods to share with others in need, such as Loaves and Fishes.

EMC News – The Operation Harvest Sharing Brockville and Area Food Bank kicked off a capital campaign on Tuesday, April 2. Entitled ‘Growing Bigger to Give Better’, the capital project will cost an estimated $523,000. Thanks to a Provincial Trillium Grant of $124,500 and the Federal Community Infrastructure Improvement funding of $258,500, plus a generous donation by the Don and Shirley Green Family Foundation of $25,000, the total received to date is $408,000. The balance of $115,000 is left to be raised in the community. “We have a very generous community in Brockville and we have done a mail out to our 1,200 donors,” said Catherine Deplaedt, Chair of Growing Bigger to Give Better, a capital campaign for Brockville and Area Food Bank, Operation Harvest Sharing. “This is a one-time and only time that we have asked for funds for the capital campaign. For those who want to be part of this, just mail in a cheque to P.O. Box 522, STN Main, Brockville, Ontario, K6V 5V7 or go to the website at www. operationharavestsharing.ca and there is a click-to-donate button through Canadian Health so they can actually enter Operation Harvest Sharing and use their credit card to donate. We are well on our way with this capital campaign and our goal for this month, April, a condensed campaign of four weeks, wherein we hope to raise the remainder.” Even though there will be labourers on the premises working, the food bank will not be closed down. Clients will still be able to obtain their groceries and items the same as before while these much needed renovations go forward. “We have not planned any closures, as we have storage trailers arranged,” said volunteer coordinator JoAnne Sytsma. “We will put what food is in the warehouse that will not fit into the trailers in here and we will just have to work around it.” According to Deplaedt more than 525 families or 1,200 individuals of which 400 are children use Operation Harvest Sharing.

Men’s cooking course has changed lives By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle - How long will food last? Where to store it? Where to look for recipes? For some these are very simple questions or actions, for others, not so much. The Alzheimer Society of Leeds and Grenville features a course entitled Got The Tools, I’m Ready to Cook! It’s a men’s cooking course, which has literally changed lives. The goal of the program is to get participants comfortable in the kitchen, able to shop for food and able to prepare “real” meals. “It (the program) has been a lifesaver for me,” Thomas Christie said, during a break in one of the sessions earlier this month. “It’s the hesitation of getting involved.” He described as the only stumbling block to signing up - the fear of the unknown. Growing up, his mother prepared all the meals in the family. After getting married, he said his wife did all the cooking, producing anything and everything in the kitchen. Christie had “been served” his meals for 60 years. “This (the program) has given me the confidence to serve my wife. I would recommend this (program) to anyone,” he emphasized. When describing what a typical day’s cooking and meal preparation for his wife involves, his eyes sparkle and a wide smile greets his lips. He takes pleasure in ensuring both he and his spouse are well fed and even in the presentation of the meal table and the food he prepares. “The longer you do this the less fearful you are of it. At the beginning I had never been in a kitchen and I had to learn from scratch.” Christie’s wife has Alzheimer Disease. As a result, he has become the cook for their household. “I have been talking with men with wives with Alzheimer’s and they neglect themselves,” he observed. “This (the program) forces us to take care of ourselves too.” So far, he has been thankful to all involved in the course, and for what it has taught him. The course teaches what goes into how to prepare food, how to pick food out, what to look for in the store and how to store food items. With the aid of a book entitled ‘The Basic Shelf Cookbook’ from the Canadian Public Health Association, every participant in the course receives one of these courtesy of the local Alzheimer Society and the May Court Club of Brockville. The book covers the topics listed above, as well as providing a plethora of simple recipes, which are “real” healthy meals. Other topics in the book include how to shop for recipes, what can be used as substitutes when ingredients aren’t available, meal planning tips to save money, healthy eating tips and even

His mother had been the cook when he was growing up and then his wife had been until she passed on.

Cooking classes take place over a certain number of weeks, for a couple of hours each week.

The class is told what each individual member will need to bring, and as well what the women of the group will bring in. When class members leave their weekly sessions, their supper is already made for them for that evening.

As they get to bring home what they have worked hard cooking up during their time with the group, explained Gibson. The course itself is for men who have never set foot in a kitchen, or who have little to no knowledge of what it takes to prepare a real meal, this is an opportunity for them to gain some tools and know how in both the kitchen and about cooking in general. The course can be for men whose wives have Alzheimer’s, perhaps have gone into a long-term care home, or have passed on. The course is two hours each week, and there is no fee to sign up.

EMC Editorial – Spring is a time of rebirth; the bright green buds form on trees, the grass starts to turn from its murky brown colour and those sunny yellow daffodils appear from the once frozen ground. This month, those daffodils will take over the region as the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit of the Canadian Cancer Society marks Daffodil Month. Instead of the traditional daffodil bunches one can find local volunteers selling at grocery stores and banks, donors can now receive a daffodil pin. The bright yellow hue of this pin never fades, can be worn year-round and serves as a constant reminder of the importance of fighting back against cancer. This year’s daffodil campaign is especially poignant as the Canadian Cancer Society marks its 75th anniversary. For 75 years, the society has been hard at work raising funds to outsmart the disease, empower, inform and support those living with cancer, as well as advocating on their behalf. Every three minutes another Canadian receives the heartbreaking news that they have cancer. Without the Canadian Cancer Society’s outreach and support services, that number would surely grow. This disease has affected virtually everyone in the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville area in some way. It’s a selfish affliction that robs us of our family and loved ones. The happy little daffodil is a stark contrast to the ugliness of cancer and perhaps that’s why it’s the perfect image to represent the Canadian Cancer Society’s campaign. So this month remember to wear your daffodil with pride and know you are doing your part to make cancer history. For more information, visit www.fightback.ca.

Marguirite proves why they call her “Bad” EMC Lifestyle - It wasn’t only that Marguirite was an only child and spoiled beyond belief, but she had a way about her that riled everyone at the Northcote School. Often I couldn’t pin down exactly what it was I didn’t like about the young girl. But there were times it was all too obvious that Marguirite felt about me, exactly as I felt about her. Take the day she decided to walk home from school the long way. She could have just hopped down the road to her house less than half a mile had she chosen. But that day she decided she would go around the concession and walk to the Northcote side road with my little friend Joyce and me. We could have easily done without her company. There were things we wanted to talk about...the new boy in senior fourth for instance. And we wouldn’t dare say a word about him in front of Marguirite because we might as well write it on the blackboard for the whole school to

see. Marguirite couldn’t keep a thing to herself. It was a day I will not soon forget. And I can even remember what I had on that day, which had a lot to do with why I remember the details so well. Mother had made me a blouse out of bleached flour bag material, and to take away the look of its once holding flour, had dyed it a bright green with Ritz dye. And that day I had on this freshly dyed blouse over a white skirt which had come in a hand-me-down box from my aunt in St. Catharines. Mother thought it was far too early in the season for a 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

white skirt, but I prevailed on her saying Marguirite had been in white for days. Well, that day, as we headed out after school, Joyce and I tried to ignore Marguirite as we walked along the Northcote side road. The ditches were full of water from the heavy rains we had that spring, and occasionally we would stop and kick small stones into the water, or coax a frog off the gravel. Marguirite said she had better things to do with her time than talk to frogs and toss stones into a ditch. Joyce suggested she hurry on ahead of us and do them! My friend and I had on black brogue shoes...Marguirite’s were patent leather, and they soon were covered with sand and dust. We pointed this fact out to her, saying we bet her mother would sure be mad when she got home and saw the mess of her good school footwear. Marguirite assured us her Mother never got mad at her. Joyce rolled her eyes skyward. We didn’t believe her for a minute.

I couldn’t wait to get to the end of the side road so that this pest would leave us and head off in the direction that would take her on to her house. What if Marguirite decided to walk down past Briscoes General Store? That would mean she would be with us almost all the way home. The thought just about gave me a sick stomach. Joyce suggested to Marguirite that she would be late for supper if she walked with us much farther. Didn’t matter to her…she assured us. Her mother would keep supper warm for her. It was sure different in our house. We better be there when it was time to sit down at the kitchen table or we didn’t eat. She was really getting on my nerves. I decided the best thing to do so that I could endure the rest of the walk to the cross road was to pretend she wasn’t there. I squatted down on my haunches at the edge of the road, peering into the deep dark green water of the ditch. I told Joyce I could see tadpoles…which

of course I couldn’t. Joyce squatted too. We squinted into the water pretending to be deeply engrossed in what was in the water-filled ditches. Well, right out of the blue, Marguirite’s foot hit the middle of my back and then within seconds she connected with Joyce sending us both sprawling. We went headlong into the water. It wasn’t deep, but we came up spluttering and rubbing our eyes. All we could see of Marguirite was those spindly legs bolting down the Northcote side road. Joyce was out of the ditch first. She held her hand down towards me and helped me onto the side of the road. I could see Joyce staring at me. I followed the direction of her eyes. Great streams of green dye were running from the home made blouse, into the white hand-me-down skirt! I was starting to look like a patchwork quilt. I looked down the road to see if I could catch up to Marguirite.

April is Oral Health Month!

First Birthday – First Visit to a Dental Professional The Canadian Dental Association recommends that babies see a dental health professional by age one This helps to spot potential problems at early stages when treatment is most simple. Baby teeth can decay quickly, and are very important for a child’s speech and nutrition. Having your little one see a dentist early helps to develop a worry-free dental relationship, and save money. This is a great time to ask any questions about how and when to clean baby’s mouth, what are tooth-friendly snacks, and talk about fluoride.

Call your dental provider today to book that first appointment. If you do not have a family dental provider, call us at 1-800-660-5853. Want to know if your baby is at risk for decay? Go to www.healthunit.org and click on the interactive quiz

Laurie Young, writer of “A Baby Chick Just In Time” holds up one of her books. The story is based on Judy, a chicken Young once owned. She was an amazing bird that never hatched out her own eggs but instead would “chick sit” any new baby birds that were hatched on her little hobby farm. Bert is a pigeon that she still has to this day. Illustrator for the book is Patrick Guindon, of Ingleside. This is the 15th Fun With Books locally created book.

Local author Dennis Stein releases second work By CONAN de VRIES

EMC Lifestyle - With his debut novel still selling well, Brockville author Dennis Stein has launched his followup, and it promises to be received just as enthusiastically. In January, the author of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Magic Cat,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; released â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Heart of the Raven,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and like his earlier work, this new story, again set in and about Brockville, is best described as speculative historical fiction, a tale of adventure and discovery that will entertain both the younger and more seasoned reader. It tells of the adventures had by a group of kids on the trail of an ancient Indian artifact said to have healing powers. Their quest is made all the more urgent by the failing health of their beloved grandmother, whose ails the kids desperately hope the talisman will cure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really turned out well,â&#x20AC;? says Stein. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The story came full circle by the time I was done.â&#x20AC;? Unlike â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Magic Cat,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which followed a straightforward, linear narrative, Raven is a bit more sophisticated, with many more characters, multiple, interwoven storylines and a twist ending nobody will see coming. Stein hopes Raven will be but the first of a series, perhaps a trilogy, of novels exploring similar themes and following the charactersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; continuing adventures. In fact, he is already 6,000 words into the second entry, entitled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lost Channel.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stein is an inveterate writer, writing for pleasure, profit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and even for the EMC family of newspapers in his regular column about local history. But most of

Brockvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dennis Stein has followed up the success of historical fiction entitled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Heart of the Raven.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; of his debut novel, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Magic Catâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with a new work all, Stein writes to satisfy a boundless urge to create new and interesting stories through which to lead his readers. When heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not working at his day job, or spending time with family, Stein can be found sitting at his computer hammering

out another charmingly original story, although, in writing Raven, Stein didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend quite as much time at the keyboard as he normally would. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole book was written on my iPod,â&#x20AC;? he says.

Though most of his work is laced with history, particularly local history as Steinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories are often set in Brockville and surrounds, the author works in a variety of fictional genres, and has several different works in various stages of development.

With 30,000 words on the page already, Stein is half-way finished an epic novel he started in 2005. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also working on a romance entitled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Caregiverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and on a science-fiction piece in which a boy finds he can communicate with his recently-deceased father through his Xbox. Though much of his fiction is geared towards the younger set, older readers get as much kick out of the stories as kids and teenagers, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always heartening when Stein gets positive feedback from someone who has taken the time to buy his books. One day, his son came into the house with one of his friends, who suddenly realized that Stein was the author of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Heart of the Raven.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the guy with the book. I read that book. It was so good.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? remembers Stein. Steinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books sell quite well locally, as local readers can identify and relate to the places, and some of the people, featured in the stories, with both â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Magic Catâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Heart of the Ravenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; available at Coles Bookstore in the 1000 Islands Mall and at Leeds County Books downtown Brockville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been fabulous to me,â&#x20AC;? says Stein, grateful for the support of both local book sellers. Steinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novels are also sold on Amazon.com and can be downloaded as an e-book suitable for any mobile platform from smashwords.com. Updates on the authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s works in progress and his regular history columns can be found by visiting Steinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busy blog at thefineprints.blogspot.ca. R0012019373

wish to sell, you’ll find it difficult to ask for more than its market value. Conversely, with supporting evidence the buyer will be ready to spend a bit more, knowing that the vehicle has been properly cared for. A maintenance notebook will help you remember some elements that may otherwise slip your mind during routine maintenance checks. By meticulously filling in the notebook, you’ll be sure that everything is done that needs to be done. Your notes should include the odometer reading at the time of each routine checkup or major repair job. Also, it would be to your advantage to include a short description of the work done. This will facilitate finding and solving any future problems that may arise. For example, if the engine isn’t turning over properly and your notebook indicates that the spark plugs haven’t been changed yet, you or your mechanic will know where to look first for the cause.

Air filters: for your vehicle’s health as well as your own One important element is often forgotten during do-it-yourself car maintenance: air filters. Not to be neglected, changing them regularly improves the health of your vehicle as well as your own. FOR YOUR VEHICLE Your car engine needs fresh, clean air. That is why its engine is equipped with a filter specifically designed to prevent different particles from entering the combustion chamber. To be able to function properly, an engine needs the right mix of air and fuel. Dirty air

will alter the efficiency of the engine and could cause damage. In addition, dirty air filters increase gas consumption. Check your owner’s manual to find out when this filter should be changed. If you usually drive in heavy traffic or on dusty roads, it would be to your advantage to have it checked very often. FOR YOUR HEALTH The importance of having a clean car cabin air filter cannot be stressed enough. The air coming into the area where you sit can be up to six times more polluted than

outside air. The filter that needs to be checked is usually located behind the glove compartment and only takes a few minutes of your time to replace. Once again, you should refer to the owner’s manual to learn how to proceed.

chamois and not allowed to air dry. * Natural substances: Tree sap, bird droppings and splattered insects contain compounds that can erode the paint on a car. Avoid parking under large trees where sap and bird droppings may be prevalent. In terms of bug splatter, try to wash it off as soon as possible to alleviate damage. * Eggs: Oftentimes, rambunctious children think it is funny to egg a car. However, the enzymes and sulfur content in eggs can cause paint and clear coat to dissolve, leaving white spots in the wake of the egg. Because egg can be sticky and very hard to remove once dried, it is helpful to wash it off as soon as possible. It takes only a few hours for the damage to be permanent. * Bleach: Although a bleach-and-water solution is often heralded for its ability to clean many things, it should not be used on a car. Bleach is an oxidizer and it will pit metal and discolor paint. Be careful with pool chemicals as well, as chlorinator is usually regular household bleach. There are many things that can damage a car paint job. Although it’s impossible to shield the car from everything, there are precautions that can be taken. SC123863

Protect. Maintain. Save.

Things that mar an automotive paint job Most people purchase a car for its looks and performance. However, unless the auto is kept in a garage and never driven, it is impossible to keep it in pristine condition. In many cases, damage to the clear coat or enamel paint on the car is something vehicle owners expect. A car owner who decides he or she wants the car to remain in the best shape possible will have to take an active role in maintenence and damage prevention. One of the key things to remember is to never allow any substance to remain on the paint for too long; otherwise the risk for damage increases. Also, it may be very difficult to clean if the offender is allowed to sit on the paint. Here are some other factors to consider. * UV light: Just as UV light can affect skin, hair and other parts of the body, it also can affect the paint on a car. UV rays oxidize the paint and cause a white, powdery film to form on the car. Washing the car frequently enough and applying the best quality wax will help keep UV rays from penetrating through the paint. * Over sprays: Life does not stop to allow cars to drive through, particularly when it comes to construction zones. It’s possible for a car to be doused in paint spray, tar, concrete, and other chemicals that are routinely used in construction. Do not allow these substances to harden on the car. Rinse promptly with automotive soap. Try to avoid construction zones whenever possible. * Rain: Both acid rain and regular rainwater (and other sources of water) can dissolve paint over time. The U.S. Geological Survey has said that water is a universal solvent because it can dissolve more substances than any other liquid. Whenever the car becomes wet, it should be dried with a towel or

Experts recommend that this filter be replaced at least once a year to prevent it from becoming clogged. As well as improving air quality inside your car, your air conditioning and ventilation systems will operate much more efficiently.

blades are often overlooked when it comes to vehicle maintenance. But many motorists would be shocked to discover that industry experts recommend wiper blades be replaced at the change of each season or on three-month intervals. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the longer a wiper blade is on the vehicle, the more brittle and ineffective it becomes, putting drivers and passengers at risk. * Install daytime running lights, or DRLs. While many drivers will admit to having trouble driving at night, just as many, if not more, might also concede they struggle with visibility at dusk or even during the day. But DRLs operate whenever the vehicle is moving, helping to increase visibility during the day and at dusk. While most DRLs are based off the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headlights, causing the headlights to wear down over time, the new LED DayLight DRLs from Philips operate on their own and use high powered LEDs which draw less power from the vehicle.

Industry experts recommend replacing headlight bulbs every two years, and motorists should add bulb inspection and/or replacement to their list of routine maintenance tasks. * Upgrade your headlight bulbs. Perhaps the best way drivers can improve nocturnal vision is to upgrade their headlight bulbs.

(MS) - As the motor vehicle industry continues to evolve, the emphasis drivers and manufacturers place on safety continues to increase. But even though technological advancements have vastly improved driver safety, accidents still happen. One of the more concerning trends with regards to traffic accidents is when they occur. In spite of the fact that there are five times as many motorists during the day, statistics indicate that one-third of all accidents and roughly half of all traffic fatalities occur at night. Though that might seem counterintuitive, this peculiarity can largely be


Cell phone use and other driver distractions could prove fatal Distracted driving can be very dangerous. Diverting one’s attention from the road for mere seconds can have serious, and potentially fatal, consequences. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have found distracted driving kills more than 15 people each day while injuring more than 1,200. Any activity that takes attention away from driving is considered a distraction. These include taking your hands off the wheel, daydreaming or engaging in any behavior that takes your eyes off of the road. Certain activities are known distractions, and understanding which habits can be dangerous and making strides to correct behaviors can help save lives, prevent injuries and reduce accident-related expenses. A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute in the United States indicates 80 per cent of crashes and 65 per cent of near-crashes in the United States involve some form of driver distraction. This distraction

took place a mere three seconds before the vehicle crash. An Allstate Canada marketing survey of 1,605 Canadian adults conducted between July 26 and July 28 found that, although the vast majority of Canadians thinks driving while distracted is unacceptable, nearly three out of four Canadian drivers admits to engaging in a behavior that is considered a distraction. That is perhaps in part because drivers are not aware just how distracting some the following behaviors truly are. Using mobile phones Leading the list of the top distractions behind the wheel are mobile phones. Phones now do more than just place calls, and drivers often cannot pull away from their phones, even when driving. According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, studies have shown that driving performance is lowered and the level of distraction is higher for drivers who are heavily engaged in cell phone conversations. The use of a hands-free device does not lower distraction levels. The percentage

of vehicle crashes and near-crashes attributed to dialing is nearly identical to the number associated with talking or listening. Accident rates have increased thanks to texting, which involves a person taking his or her hands and eyes off of the road. A 2009 study by Car and Driver magazine compared the dangers of texting while driving to the effects of driving drunk to see which would be more dangerous under the same conditions. Measuring the time it takes to brake after being alerted by a red light to stop, the reaction time was recorded when the driver was legally drunk, reading an e-mail and sending a text. Texting easily elicited the slowest response time. Ironically, in January 2011, Texas man Chance Bothe drove off of a cliff after texting that he had to stop texting or risk dying in a car accident. Bothe survived but sustained significant injuries and had to be revived from death three times. Moving objects

walking and chewing gum at the same time may want to avoid eating while driving. The majority of foods require a person’s hands to be taken off of the wheel and their eyes to be diverted from the road. Reaching in the back seat to share some French fries with the kids is also distracting. Try to eat meals before getting in the car. For those who must snack while en route, take a moment to pull over at a rest area and spend 10 minutes snacking there before resuming the trip. Reading Glancing at an advertisement, updating a Facebook status or reading a book are all activities that should be avoided when driving. Even pouring over a traffic map or consulting the digital display of a GPS system can be distracting. When driving, attention should be placed on the task of safely getting from point A to point B. All other activities taking place in the vehicle are distractions that can end up risking a person’s life. SC133964

Whether there’s a pet bouncing in the front seat or children being boisterous in the back, passengers and items moving around the car are significant distractions. Turning around to look at the kids or to reach for a ball that may be rolling around on the floor of the car can take a person’s eyes off the road. If something really is important and needs to be addressed, it is much safer to pull over and take care of it before getting back on the road. Daydreaming Many people will admit to daydreaming behind the wheel or looking at a person or object outside of the car for too long. Perhaps they’re checking out a house in a new neighborhood or thought they saw someone they knew on the street corner. It can be easy to veer into the direction your eyes are focused, causing an accident. In addition to trying to stay focused on the road, some drivers prefer the help of lane departure warning systems. Eating Those who haven’t quite mastered

Things to consider when choosing a vehicle or use your car to get the kids to and fro, then a larger vehicle with a more roomy interior might be the best bet regardless of its fuel efficiency. * Budget: Your budget is perhaps the biggest thing to consider when shopping for a new vehicle. Many buyers intend to finance or lease a vehicle, and sites such as Edmunds.com can help prospective buyers estimate what their monthly car payment will be. The larger the down payment you’re able to make, the less your monthly payment will be. In addition, those who intend to finance their vehicle purchases should consider the length of their finance agreement. You might be able to finance a vehicle purchase in as little as 12 months or as long as 72 months. The longer your agreement, the less you will be paying each month. However, you will pay more interest the longer your agreement is and your payment is likely to be the same in the 72nd month, when the vehicle has significantly depreciated in value, as it was in the first month when the vehicle’s value was at its peak.

* Lease or buy: The decision to lease or buy is something to consider. Leasing allows drivers to drive a brand new car for far less money than if they were to purchase the vehicle outright, and the terms of a lease are typically far shorter than those when buyers are financing, which allows drivers to get a new vehicle more often. Buying or financing a vehicle has its advantages as well, most notably that you will be making payments for something you’re eventually going to own. In addition, buying or financing gives consumers more flexibility, as they’re allowed to sell the car whenever they choose without penalty, something that is not allowed under many lease agreements. In addition, there are no mileage restrictions when buying or financing, while such restrictions are typical when leasing a vehicle. * Insurance: Some vehicles are more expensive to insure than others. Insurance companies base insurance rates on a host of factors, but those vehicles that have

the strongest safety records and are less likely to be stolen tend to cost less to insure. How much you will pay to insure a vehicle also depends on how you will be paying for it. Lenders typically require borrowers who are financing or leasing a vehicle to fully insure the car, which costs considerably more than basic insurance coverage that drivers who buy their vehicles outright tend to choose. Weigh the costs of insuring different makes or models before making your purchase. Buying a new vehicle requires a considerable financial investment, so buyers should weigh a host of factors before driving their next vehicle off the lot. SC133952

A host of factors should be considered when men and women are buying a new or preowned vehicle.

Buying a new automobile, be it a brand new car or a preowned vehicle, is a considerable investment. Some buyers agonize over which automobile to buy, while others tend to stick with the same make or model for years on end. Regardless of which group buyers fall into, there are some things all consumers should consider before buying their next vehicle. * Driver needs: A large sport utility vehicle might be your dream vehicle, but it might not be the most practical car to start parking in your garage. When examining your vehicle needs, ask yourself what you use the car for. Is it just a vessel to get you from point A to point B? Do you routinely use your vehicle to take your children and their teammates to and from soccer practice? Is your commute long or short? Each of these things should factor into your decision. For example, if your commute to work is especially long, then perhaps a smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicle is the most practical choice. However, if you routinely carpool

EMC News - Tequila was an owned pet whose family didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want her any more. What a shame! She is an attentive girl who really enjoys the company of people. She is aptly named because she is high-spirited when it comes to other cats; she does not want them in her personal space. So she lives in the Lobby Room with the other pre-owned cats but spends a lot of time in her very large cage, meowing to the volunteers to pay attention! Who can blame her? She knows there is more to life than living in an animal shelter and very much needs to find a forever home where sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll thrive and feel secure as the only pet. Tequila is a white and tabby medium sized cat, spayed, micro-chipped and up to date with all vaccines, and you can meet her at the Gananoque & District Humane Society at 85 Hwy. 32 just north of the 401 and Gananoque. The shelter is open to the public from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Saturday. The shelter is holding an April Adoptathon for the entire month. A reduced price of $75 for all cats, and ex-

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Rotary Club of Prescott was granted its charter in April 1939. Next year local Rotarians will be celebrating their 75th anniversary and are looking for ideas from the community for an anniversary project. Criteria against which possible projects should be assessed include: a) The project has to be beneficial to the Prescott community. b) It should be something physical similar to the Clock tower, the Lighthouse and the Pavilion. c) It should promote physical activity. d) It has to be affordable and financially sustainable over time. The members of the Rotary Club of Prescott want this to be a true community project, and have agreed that the club should ask for project proposals from the community, so that everyone has a chance to participate in this anniversary project from the very beginning. Local schools, organizations, seniors, men, women and youth will all be encouraged to submit proposals. The winning idea for the 75th Anniversary project will be announced at the Rotary Gala to be held on April 5, 2014. Anyone wishing to submit a proposal should send a letter to: The Rotary Club of Prescott, PO Box 1477, Prescott, Ontario K0E 1T0 Attention: 75th Anniversary Project.

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church volunteers on community mission By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News – A joint venture between the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and the local Alzheimer Society will see the turning of a room into a welcoming space for clients of the society. “The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, (GSLC) has always been in mission for others as groups within the congregation and on an individual basis,” said Pastor Bruce Thompson, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Brockville and an Alzheimer support group facilitator. “This now gives them the opportunity to be in partnership with the Alzheimer Society and in mission for others corporately.” This joint venture that Thompson is referring to is the renovation of a room which will be used by clients of the Alzheimer Society of Leeds and Grenville. “We needed a room that was accessible and on one level,” said Alzheimer Society of Leeds and Grenville public education and family support coordinator Sean McFadden. “We have folks that cannot manage stairs. With Alzheimer, the brain cannot tell the feet what to do and it also affects balance. Thanks to the Brockville General Hospital, here at the Garden Street Site, we are able to use one of the rooms downstairs. They were right on board with the idea.” This proposal came together in a conversation between Thompson and McFadden after Thompson started volunteering for the Alzheimer Society of Leeds and Grenville. Thompson is no stranger to dementia as during his internship in Stratford, before being ordained as a pastor, he volunteered in the community as part of his internship. He chose Special Steps, a Victorian Order of Nurses’ program, working with individuals with dementia, which is near and dear to his heart as his grandmother had Alzheimer’s disease. So when Thompson arrived in Brockville on June 1, 2012, to become pastor of GSLC, it seemed natural to contact the local Alzheimer Society to volunteer. In doing so, an idea sprung to light. “I asked Sean if he would be open to have the Church help support this room,” said Thompson, “he said by all means and that’s how that happened last fall and the Church Council approved it and the church people got on board. They have been itching (to get started on the room) since January 1.” The parishioners of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church viewed the room and came up with some significant sugges-

tions as to how they will turn this sterile setting into a homey place where people will feel welcomed, secure and comfortable. As McFadden mentioned, these individuals who will use the room are coming from their homes and need to spend time in a comfortable environment, one where they do not have any agitation. “Our main purpose for the room was for the Just For You Group,” indicated McFadden. “This is a group of people who have lived with dementia for some time, years. We also want to turn the room into something that is multi-purpose.” The examples McFadden gave were

“We are going to turn a hospital room into a room that feels like home,” expressed Thompson. “We are going to have pictures on the walls, curtains on the windows, furniture, chesterfield and chairs, table lamps and lamps; all these things that would remind people of home, a safe place.” Some of the volunteers are donating furniture and taking an active role in the future of this room. “There will be a plaque outside the door indicating that the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church sponsored this room along with the name that they choose,” said McFadden. “This is one example of a community partner that has come for-

clients in wheelchairs who cannot negotiate the stairs to the Alzheimer office, or for the art program which is currently at St. Lawrence College, as well as educational purposes. Currently the room is very basic with a table, chairs and a sink. There will be a need to address the electrical outlets before any other preparations are done, which the hospital maintenance people will look after. With GSLC adopting this room the congregational members will dismantle some of the items, fill the cracks in the tiles or walls, paint the ceiling and walls, install new window dressing, and give this room a whole new look.

ward to help. As a community, we need to be doing more together to mutually benefit all of us. With Alzheimer’s we are all in it together.” The church contingent wholeheartedly embraced this idea of naming the room. “Naming the room will be fun,” said Thompson. “The things that we do in the church will have meaning for our work in the community, but also has to be fun for the volunteers. We laugh a lot in our church, we have a good spirit in our church, the Holy Spirit is present and that is the part of spirit within ourselves through giving.”

Federal government aims to improve Lansdowne international border crossing By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC News - Long waits are soon going to be reduced at the Lansdowne Port of Entry (POE) located at the Thousand Islands Bridge, LeedsGrenville MP Gord Brown announced recently. Brown came out to speak on behalf of the Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister MOTIC, Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec, and Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs. “The Government of Canada has allocated up to $60 million in new funding for the Lansdowne improvements in Budget 2012. Funding will flow through the Gateways and Border Crossings Fund (GBCF). To date, the Government of Canada has dedicated over $2.1 billion under the fund to ensure the efficient flow of goods and people between Canada and the rest of the world.” Important crossing The Lansdowne POE is considered to be one of the most important of the Canada-US border crossings. Serving both commercial and passenger traffic, the Canadian government has recognized it as a priority for investment under the BBAP released by U.S. President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The plan concerns itself with four major areas of interest, being the strengthening of critical infrastructure and cyber security; early assessment and addressing of threats; the integration of law enforcement at the cross border level; and the facilitation of jobs, trade and economic growth. “Modern and efficient border crossings are essential to keeping trade moving and our economy on the right track,” said MP Brown. “Our government is pleased to invest up to $60 million for job-creating infrastructure improvements at the Lansdowne Border Crossing that will help travellers

Located on the Canadian side of the TI Bridge, it experienced over $14 billion in twoway trade over the past year, and dealt with more than 800,000 passenger vehicles during that time, making it a critical border crossing in Ontario. To improve these services, the government will increase the current eight Primary Inspection Lanes at the

inspection plaza to 13, with two of them dedicated entirely to commercial traffic. This will decrease congestion during the heaviest usage periods and improve efficiency for all when crossing the border. Owned and operated by the Federal Bridge Corporation Limited, planning is slated to start this year with two years of construction to commence in 2015. “These improvements will make the Lansdowne Border Crossing more efficient, reliable and secure,” said MP Brown. “With the new Building

Canada plan, we are delivering the largest investment in infrastructure in Canadian history through Economic Action Plan 2013 – investments that create jobs, economic growth and provide a high quality of life for families in every city and community across the country.” The GBCF allows the government to make unprecedented investments into infrastructure in cooperation with the various municipalities, provinces and territories. “Combined with other federal in-

frastructure investments, it supports Canada’s infrastructure advantage, a key enabler of economic growth and job creation,” said MOTIC. “Since 2006, the federal government has made unprecedented investments in over 43,000 projects to build roads, bridges, commuter rail and other important public infrastructure.” For more on the BBAP and other material related to the Lansdowne POE construction project, please go to www.actionplan.gc.ca/border.

to be a strong voice for business. The Chamber’s annual general meeting was held March 21 at the Brockville Country Club and featured several presentations, including a financial report provided by treasurer Gary Brett, of Brett’s ValuMart, who noted the Chamber was “in very good standing.” Heather Halladay, having served as president for two and a half years, will be moving to the position of past president. Anne MacDonald, executive director, emphasized the Chamber has and will continue to advocate on a local and provincial level (when it fits into the “local model”), and to be a “friendly watchdog” for the City of Brockville. The Chamber has and will continue to undertake pertinent research and this year will be conducting an in depth membership analysis to ensure members’ needs are being met. She noted much activity will be taking place throughout the summer months, including the much anticipated Tall Ships Festival, from June 14 to 16, as well as many other yearly events. The Chamber this year has handed off the fourth annual 1000 Islands Wine and Food Festival to the Volunteer Centre of

St. Lawrence Rideau. The festival is set for June 14 and 15. “It is going to be another great successful year,” MacDonald commented. She also noted the Chamber has been working with the Railway Tunnel Committee and will continue to work with them to seek out funding. Moving forward into the meeting, three outgoing directors were honoured for their time serving with the organization. Jane VanderBaaren and Jay Webb (who was unable to attend), as well as Sherri Fournier-Hudson and Bob Pearce. “It was a great experience. I can’t say enough,” Fournier-Hudson, who has been on the board since 2007, noted. “I encourage other people to take part.” “The Chamber has an extremely active board who give countless hours of their time,” MacDonald stressed. Directors elected that morning include: Hugh Hammond, Keenleyside (president), Pat Markovich (from Royal LePage ProAlliance Realty), Barry Moss (401 Electric), Virginia Stenner (Manpower), Rick Walker (1000 Islands Toyota), Perry Wenham (Tait’s Bakery).

Nutrition advice is everywhere, how do you know what to trust? By DIANNE OICKLE, Msc, RD

EMC Lifestyle - Many diplomas, certificates, training programs, and schools exist for someone to become a “nutrition expert”. And since anyone can claim to be a nutrition expert, how do you know if someone is really trained and qualified to provide credible nutrition information? What is a reliable source of nutrition information? Registered Dietitians (RD) are specially trained to translate nutrition research into practical advice that can have a positive impact on health, including: • an accredited four-year or equivalent university degree;

• an accredited dietetic internship or equivalent supervised practical training; • successful completion of the Canadian Dietetic Registration Examination. While anyone can provide nutrition education and advice, what sets RDs apart is that, under the Regulated Health Professions Act, they are responsible to the College of Dietitians of Ontario (www.cdo.on.ca) for safe, competent and ethical nutrition practice. Every RD must complete quality assurance and practice assessment programs to ensure that they are competent. When anyone has a concern regarding a RD, they can contact the College of Dietitians

Nutrition Tips of Ontario which has the responsibility and power to investigate and take action. The titles “Registered Dietitian” and “Public Health Nutritionist” (because this is a job title that requires someone to be a RD) are regulated by law. In contrast to what is required to be a RD, there is no formal training required for someone to be called a “nutritionist” or to provide nutrition advice. There are no legal means to ensure that unregulated nutritionists have accurate knowledge about nutrition and that they practice safely and ethically. This means the public is not protected. Beware of unqualified individuals Because the title of “nutritionist” is not regulated in Ontario, it is used by many people who do not have the same credentials as a Registered Dietitian and are not qualified to do the type of nutrition counseling they offer. Some words in “professional” titles or services may be used to make them look credible but do not guarantee it. Here are some to watch for: Registered – e.g., Registered Ho-

listic Nutritionist, Registered Nutrition Professional. Just because a title is “registered” does not mean it is covered by the Regulated Health Professions Act. Certified – e.g., Certified Nutrition Practitioner or Consultant, Certified Nutritionist. Anyone who completes a training program can receive a certificate and become “certified” regardless of the quality of the program. Incorporated – e.g., Being incorporated means that a new business or agency has been formed. Being incorporated makes something a legal body, but not accountable as a health professional. Clinical Nutrition – Anyone can claim to practice clinical nutrition, so if this is listed as one of their areas of expertise, they still may or may not be adequately trained. When in doubt Get your nutrition information from a Registered Dietitian and steer clear of anyone who suggests: • large doses of vitamins will help with a large number of conditions – this is not evidence-based, • hair analysis to detect the body’s nutrition status – hair is not a reliable indicator of nutritional health, • “hidden food allergies” are the cause of a wide variety of health

problems – again, not based on any evidence, • computer-scored “nutrient deficiency test” as the basis for prescribing vitamins – computer programs can do dietary analysis, but cannot indicate nutrient deficiencies, • IgG blood screening for food allergies - this shows the body’s normal physiological reaction to food proteins but does not indicate allergic disease, • detox diets to rid the body of contaminants – the body does this for us already, • light-to-skin tests to detect nutrient deficiencies – there is no evidence to indicate that this works. Arm yourself with knowledge of what good nutrition advice really is. For more information on reliable sources of nutrition information, contact EatRight Ontario at 1-877510-5102 (www.eatrightontario. ca) to speak directly to a Registered Dietitian. You can also contact the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit at 1-800-660-5853. Visit our website at www.healthunit. org/nutrition and “Like” us on Facebook!

Anything but crude, Croods serves up great family entertainment

My Take MARK HASKINS

because they live by Crug’s many rules, and avoid anything new. They survive because they live in fear. Fear may keep them alive but it isn’t really living. At least that’s what Eep is beginning to realize. She’s feeling chaffed by all the rules, and by having to always hide in the cave. Then one night she sneaks out of the cave and meets Gy (Ryan Reynolds). Gy is a man with ideas, and he isn’t afraid to try new things. Eep likes him right away, but Gy has to

keep moving. The end of the world is coming, and Gy is heading for higher ground. He tries to get Eep to go with him, but she can’t leave her family behind. Eep tells Crug, but he doesn’t believe her. Then an earthquake destroys their cave, and the Croods find themselves thrown into a jungle wilderness full of new dangers. It seems their only hope of surviving in this unfamiliar world is to trust Gy. Crug doesn’t like it, and he especially doesn’t like Gy,

but even a caveman like Crug will do whatever he can to protect his family. The Croods manages to be funny, exciting and heartwarming all in perfect proportion. There is nothing about it my daughter or I didn’t like. It’s a truly wonderful adventure in a vivid prehistoric fantasy world. When I say pre-historic fantasy world I mean this isn’t exactly Earth. One of the striking things about the movie is that it’s filled with these fantastic creatures like owl cats, parrot tigers, elephant mice and piranha parakeets. This fantasy world is also marked by the animation. Everything looks like a cartoon, yet there are things like skin, hair, feathers and fur that are remarkably realistic. The whole experience is simply incredible. Keys to any good animated film are the actors who lend their

Summer Company applications now being accepted mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Business - Applications are now being accepted for the Leeds and Grenville Small Business Enterprise Centre Summer Company program. And those interested should move soon, “the seats will fill,” cautioned Wendy Onstein, manager for the LGSBEC. The program gives youth the chance to start up their own business over the summer months. For those ages 15 to 29, in school and returning in the fall, this is an opportunity for them to “get their business up and running and successful.” While the program may begin July 1 and participants exit at the end of August, it is a golden op-

portunity for those with an entrepreneurial spirit. Successful applicants receive up to $1,500 startup cash to help get the business running. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will receive another $1,500 to return to school. While the two months may be a very short period of time, it is one ripe with opportunity. Participants are provided with mentors, hands on business training and coaching from members of the business community. Mentors are paired with participants whom might have a similar type business; it is all geared towards the needs of the youth. Those interested in taking part can visit www. ontario.ca/summercompany to look over and complete the application process, which involves hav-

voices to the characters. The Croods have some of the best. Everyone is so good it’s hard to single anyone out. Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Nicholas Cage, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman are all brilliant. They are hysterical, they have great chemistry, and

they are the perfect fit for their animated counterparts. The Croods is as much fun as a family can have at the theatre. I know this father and his daughter loved every minute of it. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Stars of the Festival

EMC Entertainment - Jane Austen wrote long and descriptive letters to her beloved sister, Cassandra, with whom she shared everything. London, Englandbased actor Sarah Finch portrays Jane and a host of her characters in many episodes you will remember â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and some you may have yet to discover. Sarahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience includes West End productions, Royal Shakespeare Company and award-winning film, television and radio productions. Through words, music and dance, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yours Ever, Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; weaves a dramatic tapestry as we discover Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sense of fun and her obsession with anonymity. Her sharp observations give an insight into the life of her times and the delightful music evokes the elegance of the period. The year 2013 is the 200th anniversary of the writing of Pride and Prejudice and in this show, the audience gets to meet all the principal characters and see them come to life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from the pompous Reverend Collins to the infinitely flappable Mrs. Bennett, the most noble

REAL ESTATE CONNECTION A WEEKLY GUIDE TO REAL ESTATE IN THE PRESCOTT, BROCKVILLE AND GANANOQUE AREAS

Knowing mortgage details essential for making a better decision EMC Business - Marcus Arkan, Canada mortgage expert working as the CTO of Syndicate Mortgages, has recently shared his insight into current mortgage rules and codes in order to educate home owners and buyers who wish to purchase a home this season. According to Arkan, preliminary understanding of terms, codes and concepts related to the mortgage industry is extremely important in making a better decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most home buyers are concerned about mortgage rates and overlook factors that can affect their finances in case they break the mortgage later on. It used to be expensive and difficult but the new code is expected to make things easier for owners.â&#x20AC;? The current code, according to the tabloids, was announced in March 2012.

Agency of Canada (FCAC), the code was created in the best interest of buyers. It will ensure that financial institutions disclose all the required amount of information to the consumers as awareness is the key to making an informed decision in any scenario. Spreading further awareness regarding penalties and charges, Arkan explains how the code dictates the lenders to keep the charges transparent. Furthermore, Arkan states that borrowers must know the fact that they are entitled to receive their annual statements that can provide mortgage holders with options that allow them to pay their loans faster without being penalized for it. Arkan insists that before applying for a mortgage, borrowers must consider consultation with reputed mortgage brokers in order to avoid unnecessary penalties and expenses in the future.

Brockville hosts site for Great Cloth Diaper Change ticipate in the Brockville event, which equates to approximately 30 people anticipated to be in attendance. This locale needs 25 babies changed to be counted towards the official Guinness World Record Total. Last year there were 22 – so it is hoped to make it to 25 this year! Those interested can pre-register online by following the links to the Great Cloth Diaper Change at www.bumsawaydiapers.com or by calling Kristie at 613-213-8685. This is a great chance to try cloth diapers for families who have been considering it. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon (with the diaper change occurring at 11 a.m.) at the 1000 Islands Mall (East Court) in Brockville. In addition to the Great Cloth Diaper Change world-recording setting activity, there will also be a teddy bear cloth diaper change for children, a used diaper sale/swap, and family photo opportunities. There will be a draw for door prizes as well as goody bags for the first 30 babies to register. For more information or to participate in The Great Cloth Diaper

Change in Brockville, please contact 613-213-8685 or visit http:// www.bumsawaydiapers.com and click on the link to The Great Cloth Diaper Change. The Great Cloth Diaper Change can also be followed on Facebook at http://www. Facebook.com/GreatClothDiaperChange, and on Twitter at www. Twitter.com/ClothRecord. About Bums Away Frustrated with the lack of local cloth diaper resources, Kristie McComb started Bums Away over three years ago. Bums Away is an online cloth diaper and eco-baby store based in Brockville. Kristie estimates that using cloth diapers on her two children (over a period of three years so far) has saved her family at least $3,000. Much easier than anticipated, using cloth diapers can be a lot of fun: especially in summer when they can be matched to different outfits. The total number of participants in the 2012 event was over 8,251 from 256 sites in 15 countries, but not all qualified for the record due to Guinness’s policy requiring a minimum of 25 babies changed per

FEED & SEED INC. www.ritchiefeed.com

site in order to qualify. About Great Cloth Diaper Change In its third year, The Great Cloth Diaper Change is an international initiative organized with the help of the nonprofit Real Diaper Association designed to show the world that cloth diapers are a real option for today’s families. The brainchild of Judy Aagard of Tiny Tots in California, Aagard says she came up with the idea in an effort to host a family event celebrating Earth Day. The Great Cloth Diaper Change has morphed into an exciting Guinness World Record breaking event, and in 2012, more than 8,251 babies were changed simultaneously. For more information visit www.GreatClothDiaperChange.com. This event is part of a larger (and growing) movement to change the way parents think about diapering their babies. Participants may contribute $1 (or more) at any of the North American local events. The money will assist the nonprofit Real Diaper Association in its efforts to help families across the U.S. and Canada find and use cloth diapers.

Brockville Collegiate Institute Principal Bill Loshaw was a good sport April 5, as students duct taped him to the wall of the gym. The BCI 125 Penny Pin-Up wrapped up that day with the taping of 25 students to the wall – along with Loshaw. Will Mulcahy, Grade 11 student, explains the school had collected their pennies, and for every $1.25 raised they received an arm’s length of duct tape. Each third period class elected one participant to be hung on the wall. The campaign raised just shy of $1,500 which will go towards the BCI 125th anniversary committee.

EMC Events – Bums Away will be host to the Brockville site of an international cloth diaper changing event taking place on Saturday, April 20, two days before Earth Day. In its third year with over 285 sites in 17 countries, The Great Cloth Diaper Change event will attempt to break last year’s Guinness World Record of 8,251 cloth diapers changed simultaneously. “Each year billions of disposable diapers enter landfills where it takes hundreds of years for them to decompose, if ever,” says Heather McNamara, Executive Director of the Real Diaper Association. “Building off the success of last year’s event with 189 qualifying locations in 11 countries, we hope to show the entire world that cloth diapers are a real option for today’s modern families, particularly catching the eye of expecting and new parents who may be seeking more planet-friendly and affordable alternatives to disposable diapers.” Registration began on April 1 and, as of April 3, there are more than 10 babies registered to par-

Local student travels through France and Belgium to learn about war By CONAN de VRIES

EMC Lifestyle - Earlier this year, the Montreal-based Vimy Foundation announced the names of 20 young people who would receive the first-ever Vimy Pilgrimage Award for outstanding youth leadership and service. The winners are all spending this week in Europe, travelling through France and Belgium and learning firsthand about the monumental legacy left by Canadian soldiers who fought in World War I. One of those winners is from the Prescott area. Sixteen-year-old Bailey Whitehouse left last Friday from Toronto and, nine hours later, landed in Paris, where she, and 19 other young Canadians aged between 14-17, would begin an all-expenses-paid educational excursion that will no doubt expand greatly on what they already know about Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in the Great War. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an honour to be one of the ones accepted to do this,â&#x20AC;? she says. To be considered for the Pilgrimage Award, applicants had to write a 500word essay explaining why they were interested in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war history, and

why they wanted to learn more about it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a fascination with the war,â&#x20AC;? said Whitehouse, who has been a member of the Guiding movement for more than a decade and has belonged to the Lt. W.F. Sharpe 661 Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron in Prescott for the past three years. She also has a grandfather who saw action in France during the First World War and is looking forward to walking in his footsteps almost a century later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be neat to go over and see where he fought,â&#x20AC;? she said last week. Winners of the Pilgrimage Award had to demonstrate to the selection committee that they had taken an active interest in their community and were willing to serve and help others. Whitehouse had little trouble fulfilling that criteria. In two years, she has tallied more than 1,000 hours of volunteer work, and is hoping to surpass 1,500 by the time she graduates high school. She volunteers regularly for the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 97 in Prescott and has helped out the Food For All Food Bank, Independent Order of Oddfellows and Rebekahs, Rotary Club and Photo by CONAN de VRIES

CPHC. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in addition to excelling in both Guides and Air Cadets. More than 250 young people from throughout Canada applied to the Vimy Foundation for a chance to revisit the battlefields where the country came of age. And those selected arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on a vacation. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there to learn. Part of the program requires that those selected find and interview a veteran and submit a report on his or her time in the military. Spending so much of her time at the Legion, Whitehouse had little trouble finding someone suitable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was certainly a perfect choice to do the story on,â&#x20AC;? says Whitehouse of former Prescott resident Bob Nuttall, now of Kingston. A retired major, Nuttall fought in both World War II and Korea, and he was more than happy to share his experiences with Whitehouse and her mother, Shirley, who accompanied her daughter to Kingston for the interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an amazing man,â&#x20AC;? says Shirley. The tall, powerful-looking man, appearing much younger than his 89 years, showed the ladies the medals he had earned in service of his country and let them see dozens of photographs that brought back vivid memories of his time in the army. He explained what it was like to be in a theatre of war and told the Whitehouses things that only someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been there could know. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an eye-opener,â&#x20AC;? said Shirley. When Bailey returns from Europe, she will be giving a slideshow presentation featuring her profile on Nuttall and her trip to France and Belgium. During the weeklong stay overseas, Bailey and her cohorts will be kept busy, visiting numerous museums and historic sites, among them the Beaumont-Hamel War Memorial, Wellington Quarry, Thiepval Memorial and St. Julien Memorial. They will also be doing a walking tour of Arras, visiting Passchendaele and spending time at the Vimy Ridge Historic Site. Towards the end of the week, the group will attend a last post ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ypres, where Bailey will lay a wreath on behalf of the Royal Canadian Legion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am really thankful to all the people who supported me, especially at the Legion,â&#x20AC;? says Bailey, noting that the Prescott Legion provided the wreath that she will leave in Belgium.

EMC Events - An appreciative crowd filled St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church in Prescott recently to see the reenactment of the Last Supper. The cast went to great pains to try and duplicate as much as possible the famous painting of the Last Supper by Leonardo DaVinci. The play was directed and narrated by Rev. Tracy Lloyd Smith with Winston Robinson at the organ providing dramatic background music and appropriate hymns. Following a reading to set the scene, the actors appeared and took their individual places at the table assuming the pose that their characters hold in the original painting. While the group held the pose, each of the 12 Apostles in turn took the front of the stage to introduce themselves and tell their story of how they met Jesus, some of the experiences they have had with him and finally questioning if they were the one who would betray the Master as he had foretold. The presentation concluded with a standing ovation from the members of the audience, many of whom expressed being deeply moved and amazed at the professionalism and dedication of the actors. The actors and stage crew who helped put on the performance were members of the Anglican Parish of All Saints South Grenville which includes St. James, Maitland, St. John The Evangelist, Prescott and St. Paul’s, Cardinal. Two of the actors were from the Covenant Players visiting the Parish for Holy Week Services. Members of the cast included: Mike MacDonald (James the lesser); Mike Floyd (Matthew), Rev. David Smith (Nathaniel); Greg Hotte (James); Graham

Where a hobby can lead you – local author signs book EMC Events - For 40 years Brockvillian Gary Spicer has been collecting old Brockville bottles and pottery. Spicer admits he has lived this hobby. He began as a digger in old dumps and was also a scuba diver. He worked the flea markets for years as well as bottle shows, spent many hours at auction sales and of course, trading with fellow collectors. Spicer has written a book entitled ‘Nineteenth Century Brockville – Uncovered’. This book includes information on local breweries, dairies, druggists, patent medicine manufacturers and wine and spirit merchants. Throughout the book he gives descriptions

of wording that appears on the bottles and pottery shown. In this book Spicer has also included lists of dairymen, general merchants and wine and spirits merchants which will greatly assist researchers. This book is just one example of how a hobby can take you down many roads. This one has led to the study of Brockville’s history from a somewhat different angle. Spicer will be at the Brockville Museum on Friday, April 12 at 2 p.m. to give a talk on his book and for book signing. To reserve please call the Brockville Museum at 613-342-4397.

Canadians push Aeros to brink of elimination EMC Sports – After a dream season, the Athens Aeros were facing elimination in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League final, entering play Tuesday night. The club captured its first RideauSt. Lawrence Conference championship last month, knocking off Brockville, Gananoque and Casselman in successive best-of-seven series. In the league final, the Aeros are up against the Ottawa Jr. Canadians, champions of the Metro-Valley Conference, their stiffest challenge to date. Despite having home ice advantage in the series, it’s the Canadians who have taken command, opening up a 3-0 lead with Game 4 Tuesday night at the Brian Kilrea Arena in Ottawa. (Result not available before press deadline). Canadians set the tone early doubling up on the Aeros in the opener 6-3 last Thursday, April 4. They followed that up with wins on back-toback nights, Saturday and Sunday, by scores of 5-3 and 3-2. If a fifth game is needed, it will take place tonight (Thursday, April 11), 8 p.m. at Centre 76 in Athens. Game 6, if necessary, is scheduled for Saturday, April 13 in Ottawa with a seventh and deciding game back in Athens next Monday, April 15 at 8 p.m.

EMC News - The Athens Garden Club is pleased to announce that organic farmer Josh Biemond from NewCare Eco Farms in Iroquois, Ontario will be speaking on improving and maintaining our garden’s soil to maximize its health and productivity. The AGC meeting takes place April 16, at Athens District High School, in the cafeteria, 7 p.m. Biemond, an enthusiastic and knowledgeable speaker, is a family farm member of the Organic Meadow Co-operative. The soil is a complex system. Its geology and microbiology are integral to optimum health and resulting productivity of garden plants and crops. A holistic approach to soil management takes into account the fact that soil is the result of the interaction of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and lithosphere - air, water, life and rock. It’s not just about maintaining the topsoil. Plants also receive crucial nutrients from the subsoil. Microorganisms in the soil (bugs) break down the mineral nutrients in the subsoil. They need high levels of organic matter, good soil aggregation and structure, and sufficient air and water to thrive. Regular crop rotation, cover crops high in nutrients, wellcomposted livestock manure, and limiting compacting traffic and over tillage can all enhance the soils potential

Making government wages reflect taxpayers’ capacity to pay: Clark

Photo by LORRAINE PAYETTE

The team from William Beatty decided to personalize their uniforms with matching scarves, socks and glasses as they participated in the Timbits’ Elementary School Championship Curling held in Gananoque from April 4-7. Sponsored by Tim Hortons, OCA, TIAP and many local businesses, the games brought 64 teams from across Ontario to play at the Curling Club and Recreation Centre.

EMC News – It’s time to stand up for taxpayers by fixing a broken arbitration system that awards unaffordable contract settlements to government workers, LeedsGrenville MPP Steve Clark said recently in explaining why Ontario PC House Leader Jim Wilson has introduced the Public Sector Capacity to Pay Act, 2013. “It is no longer acceptable for arbitrators to assume that municipalities should raise taxes to pay for these arbitration decisions. It is time for arbitrators to stop making their decisions on the assumption that taxpayers can shoulder the burden,” said Clark. “As Ontario PC Critic for Municipal Affairs and Housing, I’ve heard from mayors and councillors across the province who are looking for action on arbitration reform.” Clark made the comments after he and Wilson met with representatives of the Eastern Ontario Mayors Committee, including committee chairman Prescott Mayor Brett Todd. The EOMC is comprised of mayors from municipalities including Quinte West, Belleville, Peterborough, Kingston, Gananoque, Brockville, Prescott, Cornwall, Smiths Falls and Pembroke. Clark said the Capacity to Pay Act is part of the Ontario PC plan to make sure government workers’ wages reflect taxpayers’ capacity to pay and help municipalities get labour costs under control – costs that are driving up property taxes and putting valuable services at risk. The Capacity to Pay Act accomplishes its goal, in three key ways: • First, arbitrators’ decisions must

factor in specific economic and budgetary factors, like the taxpayers’ capacity to pay, when making decisions and explain those decisions in writing; • Second, it makes arbitrators accountable by ensuring cases are decided within tight timelines and with full written reasons explaining how a decision was arrived at; and • Third, it creates a Capacity to Pay Division which would publish comparative information on compensation, as well as proactively disclose all arbitration decisions. “The Capacity to Pay Act is about living within our means, standing up for taxpayers and getting government worker wages under control,” said Wilson. “I hope all parties in the Legislature will support my bill, so we can rein in overspending and build a solid foundation for private-sector job creation.” Clark and Wilson noted the Capacity to Pay Act has received widespread support. Russ Powers, president of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario which represents almost all of the province’s 444 municipal governments, stated in a release last week: “Municipal leaders with diverse political views support this Bill. AMO hopes that Members of the Legislature will work together, seize this opportunity, and pass much-needed legislation. “We are pleased that the authors of this Bill took time to consult with Ontario’s municipal governments and to study AMO’s proposals. Municipal input is reflected in this Bill. Consultation and cooperation between governments is in the best interest of Ontario’s communities.”

The balustrade sets the tone

The best way to personalize your staircase is to choose a balustrade â&#x20AC;&#x201D; composed of balusters or banisters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that matches with your personal taste and style. Usually ignored or forgotten, the balustrade will become a statement, defining the character and the design of the staircase. Your first decision is to choose the best material to go with the steps. Wood is always popular. It lends warmth and elegance while allowing a variety of colour schemes. For example, you could select different shades for the handrail and the balusters. Wrought iron gives a personalized effect with simple lines

or elegant arabesques and adds prestige to any home. You could also combine two different materials by alternating wood and wrought iron balusters or wood and Plexiglass baluster panelling. After choosing the material, next comes the time to determine the style of baluster best suited to your home. A wide range of models are available to help you set the tone for your stairs, and new trends are sure to give you lots of interesting ideas. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look is more linear, emphasizing vertical and horizontal lines rather than curves and curlicues. Consequently, modern

dĂŠcors adapt particularly well to simple, uncluttered balusters on staircases without risers, conveying the lightness and luminosity so characteristic of the contemporary style. Balusters with simple, uncluttered profiles lend a more restrained appearance to the staircase while increasing the impression of spaciousness. If you prefer more daring styles, you could opt for ornamental balusters adorned with patterns or geometric details. It is also possible to create a combination of two types of balusters by alternating elaborately detailed balusters with ones of more simple design.

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Since April 2003, Tile Tech has been providing Brockville and area residents and businesses with high-quality flooring products and installations. After 10 years, 0wner Frank Maggio credits his employees and the great customer service that they provide as the key to his success and growth. “Our customers must have peace of mind and trust in the knowledge and experience of our employees which has been our philosophy since day one. Our sales consultant knowledge is constantly growing along with all the latest flooring innovations.” says Frank. Tile Tech’s newest member, JD VanJaarsveld, joined the team with a keen knowledge of todays ever changing flooring industry and the advantages of buying quality. “A key componant to selling any type of product to a customer is for them to fully understand what they are buying and the correct application for that specific product”, Exclaims JD. “Too often customers are misinformed about their choices and as such they are seldom satisfied with the end results. This is where Tile Tech changes the game to build lasting relations. The green shift is on. Innovations in carpeting allow you to recycle old product rather than having it end up in a landfill and now there are carpet brands made from recycled pop bottles. Carpet recycling programs are now also available from some manufacturers which relieves a lot of stress on our environment. 2013 saw the expansion of their existing showroom in order to add an Inventory Outlet Centre. Tile Tech has been proactive in listening to the market shift in demand for Do-It-Yourselfers and Cash & Carry product. Maggio says the difference between Big Box stores and Tile Tech is that “we not only have the inventory and selection but we are able to provide superior advice and expertise.” All product that is available at the Inventory Outlet at Tile Tech is of “Top Quality” and can be re-ordered at any time. We do not carry “End-Of-The-Line” or products that our customers cannot return or re-order in the future.” Flooring needs to be practical, durable, userfriendly, environmentally friendly and cost effective. Our suppliers are reputable and if there are ever any issues, we hold our suppliers accountable and back our work 100% to make sure the customer is satisfied. Steve Pelehos, Flooring and

Tile Consultant states “Another flooring innovation are some new “stain-resistant” surfaces such as Silhouette’s Avant Guard hardwood flooring which literally has a “stainfree” surface. You could rub iodine or black permanent marker on it and it will wipe right off the surface with a dry paper towel.” Tile Tech sells and installs everything in flooring from ceramic and porcelain tile to wood and engineered hard-wood floors, laminates, cork, carpeting, vinyl, fibre flooring and radiant “in-floor” heating systems. Not to mention bathrooms, back splashes, tile walls, vent covers, and custom medallion insets. The list goes on and on. The newest design products are being introduced monthly from most of our key tile brands such as our exclusive “Monet” designer series by Ceratec. “Our newest product line, Olympia Tile, yet again puts a spotlight on producing even more versatility in todays latest trends and quality expectations.” In addition to flooring, Tile Tech also offers complete custom bathroom renovations and proudly specializes in custom designed glass, tile and tumbled marble backsplashes for the kitchen. They carry a wide selection of accent pieces, including beautiful custom floor and wall medallions and stone vent covers by Accents of Distinction. Steve enjoys the creative process in selling kitchen and bathroom designs and ideas as shown with the assortment of backsplash alternatives and floor medallions which can “really set a room off”. There are a multitude of colours available and designs which can be achieved.” You can customize it as much as you want.” Says Steve. The quality workmanship of our installers is important to the level of service we provide, especially when it comes to big jobs, custom work and backsplashes. Without their experience we would not be able to offer our designs and quality to the extent that we do. Sometimes, major purchasing decisions can be a stressful experience for homeowners. Tile Tech’s philosophy is to make the buying decision process an enjoyable one by offering different alternatives that can accommodate the buyer and fit their budget.

Transforming two apartments into one home is not visible from downstairs, it will be easier to be more daring with the colour scheme and create two areas with very different atmospheres or styles. For example, a contemporary style downstairs and a more vintage style upstairs. Some space will be lost if the second floor is under the roofline, but dormer ceilings are great for creating a country look. If you have opted for an open space between the two floors, be sure to plan a harmonious transition when choosing your colours. Some elements of R0012025280_0411

Merging two apartment units, one above the other, in order to create a single family home is quite a job to undertake. The first thing to think about is where to open up the ceiling to link the two floors with a staircase. Once its location has been determined its size must be calculated depending, in part, on the type of upper floor you want: the opening could be limited to just enough space for the staircase, or it could create a large airy and open space in the middle of the new home. If you opt for a second floor that

the ground floor can flow up into the new mezzanine. Ample ceiling height will give an impression of luminosity and magnitude. Windows installed on the second floor will allow sunshine to brighten up the entire house. The distribution of the rooms will depend on your needs, your daily activities, as well as the configuration and the constraints of the available space. You’ll have plenty of choices: your bedroom on the ground floor near the living room and dining room and the children’s bedrooms upstairs; the children’s rooms downstairs, away from the living room and your master bedroom and en suite bathroom upstairs; or the living room, kitchen, and dining room downstairs and all the bedrooms upstairs.

A rainbow of possibilities Colours used in the bedrooms, bathroom, and home office should create a different atmosphere from the rest of the home. Think about using tones that harmonize with the more expensive, long-lasting elements, such as a carpet or sofa. Similarly, you could try to coordinate with an object of interest that you like, such as a picture or window dressing — these are likely to be in your favourite colours, anyway. If your furniture is colourful, use neutral tones on the walls.

Colour is certainly the central element in interior decorating, but it has to be used properly to create the desired effect. As a general rule, for open areas experts recommend the use of the same dominant colour, or another option would be to use a mix of colours of the same tone, which blend together harmoniously. If rooms are enclosed, the colours in all the communal living areas, such as the kitchen, dining room, living room, family room, and hallways, should complement each other, creating a flow from one room to the next. After this you could give each of the rooms a different accent colour. If you prefer to use contrasting colours, some kind of transition should be created by inserting a decorative element in the same colour as each of the other rooms.

In choosing a colour scheme, remember that dark colours absorb light, make rooms appear smaller, and create a more intimate atmosphere. On the other hand, pale colours reflect light, increase brightness, and amplify the space. Warm colours (yellow, orange, red, lime green) give an impression of warmth to rooms without sun, and cold colours (blue, violet, mint green) are suitable for sunny rooms. Evaluate colours in both daylight and in the artificial lighting used after dark. The colours of the bed cover set the tone for the décor.

Compare apples to apples... and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oil heating stacks up. Here are three facts you may want to keep in mind when looking at your home heating options...

1 2 3

Litre for litre, heating oil has over 50% MORE HEAT than propane. Oil has 36,207 BTU per litre. A litre of propane has only 23,980 BTUs. Modern oil furnaces are now up to 96% efficient. In fact, they waste so little heat, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even need a chimney. And our new generation of fibreglass oil tanks offer you long-term peace of mind. Each indoor/outdoor tank comes with a 30 year limited warranty and $5 million of liability insurance.

How do I calculate how much my renovation project will cost? Now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a question that requires a great deal of thought! Obviously there are many different answers to this question, depending on what type of project you have in mind and the quality of materials you can budget for. Do you want to demolish everything and start from scratch? Replace the plumbing and the electricity? Or simply change the furniture and the appliances to freshen up some rooms and give them a more up-to-date look? Your budget will also depend on whether you plan to hire a professional to do the work or if you do it yourself â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sometimes both options are possible. Hiring manpower will increase the cost, but using a pro can prevent months of lost time and space at home. If you decide to hire someone, ask for recommendations from family, friends, and work colleagues. That is the best way to find a trustworthy person who can do quality work at a reasonable price. You can also obtain invaluable advice from specialists in hardware or renovation stores. The quality and quantity of materials chosen will also have a huge impact on the cost of the project. If money is no

Hammering out a budget

object, you could renovate everything in one go. If your budget is more modest, you could go more slowly, at your own pace, one room at a time. Be sure to get all the information you need to make an enlightened decision. Write everything down and compare the different options that have been suggested. Avoid spur of the moment decisions that you could end up regretting later on, and be especially careful about going over budget. The important thing to remember is to take the time to make rational choices, while keeping in mind your tastes and budget.

Lights that create a stunning effect The first factor to consider when choosing a light fixture is what you want it to do. A directional lamp is suitable for specific tasks such as reading or cooking, while a light fixture with a dimmer is preferable for creating atmosphere. Outdoor lighting requires fixtures designed to withstand bad weather. Designs vary greatly, as they may be used for security purposes or to show off a landscaping feature. Inside the home, ensure that the style of your light is suitable for the area where it will be installed. A modern lamp or recessed

light will harmonize with a contemporary décor or a Zen atmosphere, whereas an antique or Victorian style lamp is essential for a rustic or traditional style. Bear in mind that if you place your table lamp or torchiere in a corner, its light will be reflected on two walls, amplifying luminosity. Light fixtures installed on pastel coloured walls and ceilings will be more efficient, as pale surfaces reflect about 80 percent of the light. Because dark surfaces only reflect about 10 percent, think about installing more lamps or fixtures in a room

with dark walls in order to create sufficient light. You can also choose your lights according to the effect you want to create. The range of different models available on the market is so vast that you’re bound to find the look you’ve set your heart on. There are also light fixtures that give different types of light, such as a flattering light for the bathroom, a shadowless light for the kitchen, a gentle glow in the dining room, as well as mood and indirect lighting for the living room and bedroom.

Because a total kitchen renovation or remodel is a very ambitious project, it is possible to only change some elements, such as the cabinets, back splash, and worktops. Alternately, new life can be brought to an old kitchen with a few accessories updates, such as sink hardware, curtains, appliances, or kitchen table and chairs.

Need more space? Finish the basement! A lot of extra living space can be added to a home just by finishing the basement. As well as increasing the value of your house, a finished basement can also improve your quality of life if you design it according to your tastes and your requirements. In your remodelled space you could set up an office or a wine cellar, add a bedroom or a corner for relaxing, create a play area for the children or an activity centre for teenagers, or build a family room or a home cinema. Whatever type of project you decide on, include an extra

bathroom in the plan and a practical laundry room with a clothing chute from the upper floors to the basement. Don’t forget to work in plenty of storage space as well as sufficient electrical outlets, telephone jacks, and cable connections. Once you decide on exactly what you want, your next step is to draw up a plan. This will help you ensure that there is room enough for people to circulate. Decide if you prefer enclosed rooms or open areas. If activities that require quiet and concentration are planned, such as a home office, a library,

or a bedroom, you will probably opt for enclosed rooms. On the other hand, an open area is perfect if you plan to spend time in a communal, multifunctional space, such as in a rec room, home cinema, or exercise area. Draw up a list of the necessary materials and determine what work you can do yourself and what you need to entrust to a contractor. Needless to say, the plumbing and electricity should be carried out by qualified professionals. Establish a schedule that takes into account your priorities and your budget, and you’re on your way!

Cuddle up to the perfect duvet Among the natural fibres, goose or duck down are the most popular. Very warm and light, down allows good air circulation, is insulating, and absorbs humidity. The higher the percentage of down content, the more the duvet will be lighter, fluffier, comfortable, and insulating. Goose down is the softest and fluffiest of all. Synthetic fibres are usually com-

A good quality duvet is comfortable and durable. It is light and fluffy, keeps you warm, and is tidily put back into place when it’s time to make the bed. If made of superior materials, a duvet should be sturdy and resistant to wear and tear. When shopping for a duvet, your first step is to choose the type of filling you want: natural or synthetic.

posed of polyester and absorb more humidity. Much less expensive, polyester duvets are particularly suited to allergy or asthma sufferers, young children, and babies. Compare the characteristics of the fibres used so that you will find a duvet that is suitably comfortable and durable. Microfibre duvets are warm, cozy, and comfortable.

The shells of good-quality duvets are usually made of cotton, which allows the filling to breathe and allows humidity to escape. Choose 100 percent cotton with a high thread count (at least 260). The construction of a duvet can also affect its quality. The different types of stitching should keep the filling in place in order to conserve

heat and volume. With natural filling, a box-baffle construction keeps the feathers evenly distributed throughout the duvet. With synthetic filling, row stitching or an open design improve thermal insulation and fluffiness. To keep your duvet for a long time and through many bedroom décors, choose a 100 percent cotton duvet cover.

Accessories make the décor Windows and Doors dressed up with more fashionable and extravagant accessories. A scattering of cushions is great for this task. Choose elegant yet comfortable cushions in a variety of complementary fabrics, tones, and patterns. They can be woven, embroidered, quilted, fluffy, pearly, sequined, or leather look. Dress up the bathroom with a chrome shelving unit and an acrylic or metal bench with a fabric seat. Other fun touches include a clock fixed to the wall of the shower and an essential oil diffuser that is both decorative and relaxing as it spreads natural fragrance throughout the room. In the bedroom, install small pieces of furniture that are both practical and esthetic, such as a hand-painted dressing table or a jewellery box whose shape and material organically fit with the rest of the décor. Artwork has its place everywhere in the home. You could opt for a single large piece or several pictures positioned in a symmetrical or asymmetrical arrangement, depending on the look you want to create. Sculptures take pride of place on a pedestal, shelf, or low table. Art not only adds colour and style, it can become the focal point or lend inspiration to the rest of the décor. In a contemporary home modern art is appropriate, while in a more traditional style of home, a copy of something by an old master with an antique frame would be suitable.

Brockville coach leads midget B Cubs to provincial championship By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC Sports – It was a stellar kickoff, a tumultuous ride and a spectacular ending this season for a Brockville man who was in Smiths Falls this year as the head coach of the Smiths Falls midget

B Cubs. Leading a gaggle of teenage girls may be a bit of a tightrope walk to the squeamish, but for Murray Robinson, it was a season of laughter, fun, tears and oh, yes… winning. The undefeated midgets (14-0-6)

were crowned the provincial champions last weekend in Ottawa, fittingly, during the IIHF Women’s World Championships, boasting a 6-0 record. “What a group… what an experience,” Robinson said. “It was the first time for provincial gold for a team of

girls from Smiths Falls. “I had a tremendous year… didn’t know all of the girls when we first came together, but they all took care of each other, didn’t get down on each other, were competitive, and had a lot of fun.” Robinson asked at the beginning of

Lace up for someone you love THROOP - In loving memory of Garry Gene Throop. January 9, 1947-April 13, 2012 Our lives have changed forever since April 13th, 2012, when we lost a beloved husband and cherished father. Garry was a hard working honest man with integrity. His word was his bond. He asked for nothing, took nothing. That was his philosophy. His family came first. He was proud of Barry and Crystal who possess and practice the same qualities as he had. Thanks to everyone for your support through this last year. Each and everyone of you have a special place in our hearts. As we move forward, Garry would have wanted us to remember him with smiles and laughter. He sure loved to tease and joke.

the season if the girls were there to win or to have fun. Their response: “Winning is fun.” “I knew right away what kind of program to teach them,” he said. “I wanted to put something together that my daughter could have fun with and learn from.” Robinson added that he had tremendous support from his on-ice squad: assistant coaches Walter Scott and Mark MacGillivray; manager Shelley Nadeau and trainer Marie Dorey. “We had a great parent group who just let the girls play and let the coaches coach,” he said. “The SFGHA left our coaching staff to run our own program but were there in a supportive role when needed. “When you hear, ‘this is the most fun I have ever had playing hockey, Coach,’ it makes it all worthwhile.” In their championship hunt, the Midget B Cubs gave the fans and their bench bosses more than the price of admission with a triple overtime win in the semifinals and an extra-period decision for provincial gold. “It was a stressful finish,” Robinson said, “quite a ride.” The Cubs opened the tournament on Thursday with a 7-0 shutout over Durham West. Annie West was divine in the crease all weekend and earned her first of four shutouts. Friday, Smiths Falls earned a 3-1 win over Norfolk and Saturday brought another shutout victory – a 4-0 decision over the Mississauga Chiefs. In the quarter-finals, Smiths Falls met Almaguin (near Parry Sound) Saturday night, in a game that was a tight-checking, physical affair. The Cubs scored early and had numerous chances but Almaguin never stopped working. The defence made some desperate stops to preserve the 1-0 victory and a well-earned berth to the semi-finals. Sunday morning, the Cubs faced Cold Creek in another fast and physical contest. Brooklyn Scott opened the scoring on a goal-mouth scramble after hard work by Bree Peladeau and Mackenzie Ryan. Cold Creek shot back and scored the equalizer soon after. With less than two minutes remaining Elizabeth Holmes scored with help from Cassell and Katie Brady. Not to be outdone, Cold Creek pulled their goalie and scored with a minute left to tie the game, again forcing not one, not two, but three overtime periods. It was Cassell’s moment in the spotlight when she scored on a feed from Holmes as Smiths Falls cruised into the gold medal match against Durham West – the same team they’d defeated at the start of the tournament. The Durham West Twister had won four games to get back on track to the finals. The championship game was a wellplayed, tight checking affair as they traded scoring chances but the Cubs defence was at a premium. When the game ended in a scoreless deadlock, the Cubs were back to overtime. True to form, this time in the first overtime period, Cassell was sprung loose on a quick breakout and her speed and determination were too much for the Twister. She blew in on a partial breakaway and potted another game winner for the Cubs to secure their provincial gold.

Brockville Jr. Braves win gold at Ottawa Roger’s House Tournament EMC Sports - The Brockville Jr Braves Atom B2 Team sponsored by Sports Experts brought home gold in the A championship finals in the Ottawa Roger’s House Tournament. This was the second A Championship tournament win for atom B2 team this season. In the first game, the Braves came out flying with a convincing win against the Ottawa West End Hurricanes and won 5-0. Emerson Hunt was tested on a number of quality shots but held his own to earn the shutout. In game #2 they faced the Barry’s Bay Grizzlies and had another solid effort. The first goal was scored by Reid Cassidy, then Dylan Lutz scored two goals with Brady Brown assisting. They continued with Dylan Wren netting a goal from Connor Hewitt on the assist, and Owen Davy finished the Grizzlies off with an unassisted goal. In their third game of the day, facing a strong Ottawa Centre B1 team, the Braves faced a 3-1 deficit en-

tering the third period. Carter McEwen gave them the one goal to build on and then scoring in the third period came from: Jackson Phillips, Cassidy from Logan Harkness, and Lutz from Ethan Cushing. The game finished in a 4-4 tie and in overtime, Christian West scored the winner with assists from Malcolm Muir and Hewitt. After a much-needed good-nights’ sleep, the Sports Experts Atom B2 team had to face-off against the Ottawa Centre B2 team. Again, another come-frombehind win was the result for the gritty Braves – a 3-2 victory. A full-team effort was played by the team with the following goals scored: Lutz from Malcolm Muir, West from Cassidy and Cushing, and Cassidy from Declan Mulville and West. The win placed the Braves in the A championship finals against the Canterbury Yellow Jackets. It was a hardfought battle throughout the game that found the Braves down 2-1 with Phil-

lips scoring assisted by Wren. With the game winding down, the Atom B2 Braves netted the tying goal with 1:54 remaining, scored by West, assisted by Lutz and Hewitt. Four-on-four overtime was played for three and a half minutes when McEwen dug the puck out of the corner and made a pass to Wren who made no mistake burying the puck in the net for the victory for the Braves! The celebration was a sight to behold – such joy and excitement for the team that overcame much adversity and found it in themselves to give it their all. A much-deserved victory to finish their season. The Most Outstanding Player was awarded to Emerson Hunt – the Braves goalie who was solid throughout the tournament and made quality saves especially when it mattered most. Receiving the trophy on behalf of the team was Dylan Wren for his effort and determination to the very end.

pizza and a beverage. The Brock Vegas lads were up 3-0 after one and increased that margin to 9-4 heading into the third period. Both teams managed to wrinkle the mesh laced igloos three times each in the third. Once the Blackhawks were up 8-2 during the second frame, they seemed to throw caution to the wind when it came to defensive play. They appeared to play too cocky. Oh and by the way, when a team does this, it helps when that team can score to back it up. The Gryphons scored two quickies minutes into the third to narrow the gap to 9-6. Ding, ding, ding, wake up here Blackhawks, there’s still 17 minutes to go in the game. Well wake up they did as they netted the next three goals to build an insurmountable 12-6 lead. The Blackhawks offence on this night was supplied by ‘The Velvet Fog’ Rob Carter and the ever hulking Trevor Murray who each scored three goals. For Carter it gave him a team leading 38 goals while Murray’s total swelled to 21 for the year. ‘The Rookie’ Jordy Whiteland netted his 23rd and his uncle Daryl ‘Stumpy’ Whiteland’s pair gives him 14 for the season. The Blackhawks’ other two goals came off the composite sticks of the team’s defencemen. Fred ‘Bubbles’ Dunnington got his second of the season while Hugh ‘Father Time’ Murray scored his first in the dying minutes of the game.

EMC Sports – The following are statistics for the Cardinal Ladies Dart League from April 3.

EMC Sports - The Island City Blackhawks closed out their 23rd season with a sloppy 12-7 win over the Gananoque Gryphons recently at the Youth Arena. The win was the team’s sixth in a row, a great way to end their frustrating season. Incidentally last season the Island City club closed out their year by winning seven straight thus assuring them of a winning season. Unfortunately this six game winning streak wasn’t enough to salvage a winning record for this 201213 season. This game between the Hawks and Gryphons marked the third and rubber game of their three-game set. Entering the game, each team had won one game each. The Blackhawks lit up the Gryphons’ caretaker of the corded closets, Josh Kane, like the first of July fireworks. The last four home games for the Blackhawks saw a light show reminiscent to that of a KISS concert as they scored a whopping 37 goals. The situation had the Youth Arena’s finest scrambling to find replacement red light bulbs. Both Sylvania and GE are very happy with this constant flicking on of those red lights. This game against the Gryphons nearly got away from the host team as they got too offensive minded, leading to numerous outnumbered rushes against. “Yeah we won the game all right, but I’ll tell ya it wasn’t our best team effort. Once we were up 8-2 everybody tried to get over involved in the offence. That took away from our two-way game. Basically we played more for the number on the back instead of the crest on the front of our jersey,” Blackhawk management chirped as he mowed down a piece of
