EMC Events - Thirty-seven sites are opening their doors in locations across the BrockvilleThousand Islands region this weekend, May 25-26, for Doors Open 2013. This is set to be a banner year. The free event will feature many special extras all surrounding the theme “Cultural Expressions�. From an arts and crafts show and sale at the Old Town Hall in Delta to the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Network office where local artists and artisans will feature their works, and the Heritage Place Museum in Lyn where folks can watch artisans at work on traditional skills, these are just a few of the activities lined up for the weekend. Two garden sites are on board this year. The Maitland Garden of Hope, a 1.5 acre location with 20 themed gardens, is a registered Monarch Butterfly Waystation. As well, the Garden of Faith and Hope Walk at the Centennial Road Standard Church, Lyn, the gardens are surrounded by walkways, a pond, waterfall and bronze monuments. “We are very pleased about the variety of sites (that are taking part),� noted Bonnie Burke (of the Brockville Museum), co-chair along with Pam Brooks (from Fulford Place Museum) of the local Doors Open committee. Burke and Brooks point to the fact this year’s event features a winery (Eagle Point Winery in Mallorytown) and a bridge (Kay’s Bridge in Lansdowne). The bridge is unique in that it is made of stone but built without mortar, according to the Doors Open brochure. Brooks is also pleased to announce the Private Tackaberry Collection north of Athens, “a collection of antique and classic trucks and tractor models, halfscale wooden equipment� and much more, is on the tour. Other points of interest include Burnbrae Farms in Lyn, “a family owned farm in the village

since 1893�; the Prescott Lawn Bowling Club, where those who visit will get a chance to try their hand at the sport if they wish; the Springfield House in Escott where the Escott Spring Fling, a much anticipated local event will take place; and “two other sites which I think are just marvellous,� said Burke. She is referring to two churches in Rockport involved in the tour – the Church of the Redeemer and St. Brendan’s Church. Brooks suggests stopping at the Old Stone Mill National Historic Site in Delta, where there will be hands-on exhibitions. Each site will feature volunteers who will be available to assist. Both self-guided and guided tours are available. Children’s games Other activities taking place as part of this special weekend (at participating venues) include children’s games at Fulford Place Museum, guided walking tours and an art gallery at Mallory Coach House in Mallorytown, student guided tours at Fulford Academy, and more. Other participating locations include Township of Athens and Area Heritage Museum, Marie’s Gallery and Studio (Athens), First Presbyterian Church (Brockville), Parish of the St. Lawrence Anglican Church (Brockville), Brockville Museum, Brockville Armouries, Brockville Court House, Brockville Public Library, First Baptist Church (Brockville), Country Living of Lansdowne, St. John the Baptist Anglican Church (Lyn), St. Luke’s Anglican Church and Ministry Centre (Lyndhurst), Long Point School House (Lyndhurst), Homewood Museum (Maitland), Blue Church Cemetery (between Prescott and Maitland), Maplehurst Manor Country Inn (Maitland), St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church Caintown (Mallorytown), Dewar’s Inn on the River (Prescott), Forwarder’s Museum See DOORS page 2

SAFETY TIPS

Smoke Alarms: Test your smoke alarms. If a fire starts in your home while you are asleep, you want to know about it immediately. Some homes are equipped with electricallyconnected smoke alarms that may not work when the power is out. Make sure your home has a battery-operated smoke alarm on every level.

On the road to recovery Community support overwhelming for well-known local family after youngster experiences “freak accident” By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC News – The small things in life now mean so much more to the Howleys. The family has experienced unbelievable support from family and the community after their seven year-old son Anthony was involved in an accident

– what was “truly one of those freak accidents,” which left him with head trauma. Having spent two weeks at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Anthony returned home May 15. His mother, Cathy, spent the entire time at CHEO by her son’s side. The night the accident occurred, An-

thony had been at the park playing as the energetic little boy was used to doing. After coming home and having his bath, he was quietly watching a video with his father Neil, before bedtime. He was laying on the floor and in front of the family’s large television (a tube television, weighing roughly 50 pounds); he stretched out and, by accident, caught

EMC News – Students at Thousand Islands Secondary School are learning a skill that dates back centuries while honouring the traditions of Canada’s first peoples. Students in David Sheridan’s Grade 9 Native Studies Class are learning how to build an authentic Algonquin birch bark canoe under the tutelage of professional artisans Janet and Chuck Commanda, Algonquin natives who have presented workshops on the craft at places such as the Smithsonian Institute in Washington. Over the next three weeks, students will assist Commanda in building a 12-foot birch bark canoe. Each student will also craft an eight-inch long decorative canoe. The canoes will be used as gifts in a welcoming ceremony for sailors June 14 at the Tall Ships 1812 Tour in Brockville. Sheridan wanted his students involved in the initiative because it offers a unique, hands-on learning experience that delves into native culture. The project holds special significance because birch trees, as well as the skilled craftsmen who can build birch bark canoes, are increasingly rare, he said. We’re at the tail end of a tradition that has lasted thousands and thousands of years,” he said. “This project will give us time to think and reflect on all the natural re-

sources with which we are blessed. We are living in a fast-paced world and we need to slow down and get in touch with our spiritual side. This is a great way to do that.” Currently Chuck Commanda is showing the students how to restore a decorative, six-foot canoe as well as to create the smaller gifts for the sailors at the festival. The students will be shown the techniques for binding the bark in the gunnels and how the ribbing for the canoe is inserted and gradually helps form the skeleton of the canoe over which the bark is stretched. Starting next week, the students will assist Commanda in building a 12-foot canoe using bark Commanda collected and strips of cedar and ash he cut to form the skeleton of the craft. When the canoe is completed Sheridan will carve out a UCDSB logo on the bow of the boat, while a bear – representing the Commandas’ Algonquin clan – will be carved into the stern of the boat. Grade 9 student Connor McLeod said he was excited about working with the Commandas and sharing the native experience in a concrete fashion. “It is hands-on learning so it’s a lot more fun,” said McLeod. “You learn to experience what they went through (natives making birch bark canoes in past). It’s much more interesting.” Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

YIPI applications being accepted in Gananoque By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC News - Hands-on experience with police officers, exposure to the police service and different situations every day - this is what will be in store for the four students chosen to be a part of the Youth in Policing Initiative (YIPI) in Gananoque this summer. Applications are currently being accepted for the four positions. Deadline to apply is June 14. Constable Rhonda Grant of the Gananoque Police Service notes the students hired, will act as town ambassadors. They will walk the streets, answer tourists’ questions, and help out at different community events. The YIPI students will also be able to take part in ride-alongs with officers, and see what the policing job is all about. It also gives the young people important exposure to local officers, and policing in general, giving them the confidence to approach officers if they are ever in need of help. While the hours are flexible, there are a guaranteed 320 hours of work throughout the summer months. The position will begin with an orientation session and an introduction to various people and organizations in the community. Students will always work in pairs and be in contact with a police officer. Students are also given the opportunity to use the police service’s street bikes. The YIPI youth will be very recognizable in the community as they will be sporting blue t-shirts and bright yellow ball caps. As part of the program the youth are usually taken on a trip to an annual YIPI conference. In the past the event was held in Durham and the

conference has covered topics relevant to youth. For example, what are their feelings towards police officers. For students who have been accepted into the program, this is a one-time deal, Grant notes. She says once students have been accepted into the program they cannot return another year. The program is now in its fifth year in Gananoque. Funded by the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services, and in partnership with the Gananoque Police Service and the Gananoque Police Services Board, students must have their application, a resume and cover letter in by June 14. Applications can be found on the Gananoque Police Service website, http:// gananoquepoliceservice.com/, or by visiting the station at 340 Herbert St., Gananoque. Completed applications and resume packages may be dropped off at the station or mailed in, attention to either Constable Grant or Constable Lynsay Molleson. Mailing address is Gananoque Police Service, 340 Herbert St., postal code K7G 1R1. Those applying must be a resident of Gananoque, or the Township of Leeds and the 1000 Islands. Students must be between the ages of 15 and 18 as of June 24, and returning to school in the fall. They must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, legally eligible to work in Canada and may not have been convicted of a criminal offence for which a pardon has not been granted or have charges pending in the courts. The job runs from June 27 to Aug. 21, 2013. According to the application for YIPI, the program’s purposes include, “enable youth to

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fun thing, a family thing,â&#x20AC;? replied Leeder. In addition, to Leederâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteer coordinator role, she is also team captain on the Rays of Hope. Both Stephenson and Leeder wish that more families and the general public would come out to see the Brockville Relay for Life at Rowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corner Fairgrounds, Brockville on Friday, June 14. They encourage people to arrive before the Cancer Survivor Lap and stay at least till the Luminary Ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just come for a few hours,â&#x20AC;? said Leeder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come out and experience this.â&#x20AC;?

Karen Leeder (left) and her family are familiar faces at the Brockville Relay for Life and she believes that this type of family commitment benefits her family as well as raising funds for local purposes, namely drivers to take patients to their appointments. Carrie Stephenson (above) wants to see the Fight Back Zone become just that with literature, research material and information that will help answer questions about cancer and alleviate some of the fears.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first year I was invited to be part of a team,â&#x20AC;? said Leeder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The following year I decided I wanted to be more involved and sat in on a Relay for Life Committee Meeting.â&#x20AC;? Leeder didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a specific role, but helped in as many areas as she could. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the last couple of years, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in charge of the volunteers, as a volunteer coordinator,â&#x20AC;? stated Leeder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This area came open, so I offered to help.â&#x20AC;? As a volunteer coordinator, the task involves starting at 8 a.m. Friday morning to coordinate the set-up for the event and then to tear down the following day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically throughout the year I put the word out there to get as many people as I can,â&#x20AC;? admitted Leeder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year is much easier because I have contacts from before. In fact in November I was able to go to the Canadian Cancer Society Leadership Summit in Toronto. There were different workshops, speakers, everyone threw out their ideas and we learned how others did certain tasks. It was phenomenal.â&#x20AC;? Leederâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire family is now involved with the Relay for Life, including her three children, Sarah, Justin and Andrew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My daughter Sarah enjoyed it so much she created her own team, Small Wonder with their cousins, and friends,â&#x20AC;? said Leeder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of relay last year they started planning on what they are going to do this year.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A family relativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fight with cancer spurred one volunteer into action for Relay for Life. For the last eight years Carrie Stephenson has volunteered for the Brockville Relay for Life as a participant and as a committee member. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since day one when the Relay for Life started, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been involved,â&#x20AC;? said Stephenson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I began as a team captain.â&#x20AC;? Stephenson has been a team captain for four years, then one year as a volunteer and three years on the organizing committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The year I volunteered, I just showed up at registration and asked where do you need me?â&#x20AC;? offered Stephenson. So this is how Stephenson started in the Fight Back Zone (sold merchandise and gave out education material) helping a lady who had decided to step down the following year, so Stephenson continued coordinating this area. When asked how she became involved with the Brockville Relay for Life, Stephenson mentioned that a family member had breast cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Aunt Shirley (Roode) is a breast cancer survivor,â&#x20AC;? said Stephenson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw an advertisement in the newspaper about the Relay for Life. I thought about it and I wanted to be careful how to approach Aunt Shirley. I took the advertisement to her and she talked to her daughters and Team Jackson was formed.â&#x20AC;? Stephenson said that she has a large family and her aunt was the first individual to have cancer and now it seems to be more prevalent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have done it once you will go again,â&#x20AC;? said Stephenson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You may not be able to do it every year, but people can give a donation or buy luminaries.â&#x20AC;? Stephenson likes to volunteer for the Fight Back Zone and feels that if anyone else would like to try out this area, she would be willing to give it up and try something else. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the Fight Back Zone, an educational area, I go to the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Health Unit to get whatever supplies they can give me and I get the literature and pamphlets from the Perth office. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really educational information (on sunscreen, skin care and nutrition) and I would like to get back to that,â&#x20AC;? said Stephenson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be great to have the Fight Back Zone up to about 9 or 10 p.m., as after that the dampness sets in, the papers become wet. Maybe we should have a different location for this information.â&#x20AC;? She thinks perhaps the Fight Back Zone and the Silent Auction should be separated with the Fight Back Zone located nearer to registration, especially with the amount of people visiting this area. As for the Silent Auction, Stephenson feels it is very beneficial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Silent Auction has taken over and last year it blew up to over 130 plus items,â&#x20AC;? indicated Stephenson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a lot of great things for the auction and it is worth it,â&#x20AC;? Each registered team gives one item with others giving more. Another volunteer Karen Leeder started volunteering the year after her mother Brenda Millar passed away five years ago. Being part of the Brockville Relay for Life is a tribute to her mother.

COMMENTARY Don’t take summer off from fire safety

Photo by CONAN de VRIES

The congregation at Centennial Road Standard Church in Brockville held their second ‘From Our Closet to Yours’ clothing giveaway at the church recently, and this second instalment was bigger than the first. A large crowd visited the church to look over the mountains of good-condition used clothing and go home with whatever caught their

eye – and fit. As part of the ministry to the community, the members of the church donated the clothing and organized the event, which also included informational displays by the Employment and Education Centre, free haircuts for children and a play area for the kids.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dental coalition issues thank yous DEAR EDITOR: The Tri-County Dental Coalition (TCDC) would like to take this opportunity to thank those in the community who help in our mission to provide emergency dental treatment to those who cannot afford it. The services that the TCDC is able to help provide would not be possible without the hard work of many community members and local organizations. Specifically, we would like to thank the United Way of Leeds and Grenville and the United Way of Lanark Counties for providing grant monies to be used for treatment provision and administration costs. Several local organizations, such as the Civitan and Rotary Clubs of Smiths Falls, Trinity United Church in Smiths Falls, St. James Church in Perth, Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Merrickville, Westminster Presbyterian Church, St. John’s Anglican

Church in Smiths Falls and the Central Lanark Pastoral Charge have generously donated to the TCDC. Individual community members have also made donations, and other groups have organized fundraisers. The TCDC would also like to extend thanks to the dental community who see the clients that are helped by these donated funds, and often provide maximum service with our limited budget. The tri-county area is also lucky to have dental professionals in the community who have donated services in their own practices to the people in greatest need of help with their oral health. If you would like to volunteer, donate, or know of someone in need of our services, you can contact us at dental@rideauchs.ca or (613)-283-1952 ext 142. Tri-County Dental Coalition

EMC Editorial – Opening the family cottage for the season is a treasured ritual for many at this time of year. Save for a freak evening of frost (which happened earlier last week), this is traditionally the time when the mild weather is finally here to stay and families make the trek to their summer spaces to give them a good spring cleaning. While you’re washing the linens, scrubbing the floors and checking for messes left by pesky critters, the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council is reminding cottagers not to forget about the dangers of fire and carbon monoxide. The council recently launched its seventh annual cottage safety campaign and is urging the public to ensure their piece of heaven remains just that by checking and maintaining smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Though some may not be aware, the Ontario law that applies to permanent homes is also required of cottages. Working smoke alarms must be installed on each storey of one’s summer home and outside all sleeping areas. While purchasing supplies to open up the cottage this weekend, be sure to add extra batteries (or smoke alarms) to the list. Those alarms that have been lying dormant all winter must have batteries replaced as the cold weather drains them of their power. Be sure and check the age of your alarms as well. The council recommends any smoke alarms over 10-years-old and those carbon monoxide devices over seven-years-old be replaced to ensure everything is in good working order. Don’t take the summer off from fire safety. Just as in permanent homes, it is important to have a fire escape plan in place. Working alarms are simply an early warning sign and families require a special plan to ensure everyone gets out of a burning building safely. Fire travels quickly and sometimes individuals may have a minute or less to escape. So while you’re testing out the appliances or dusting off the patio furniture, take a few extra minutes to test or install smoke alarms. A little work now will ensure your summer oasis is around for generations to come.

Aunt Lizzie’s strange gifts never served much use EMC Lifestyle - Father’s sister Aunt Lizzie, very wealthy we thought, lived in Regina and once a year she came out to the homestead in Renfrew County, just to check up on her only brother, and as Mother said, to make sure the farm hadn’t slipped into the Bonnechere River. Aunt Lizzie didn’t think Mother was good farm material. She thought anyone who had lived most of her life in New York City, certainly wouldn’t amount a hill of beans in the backwoods of Renfrew County! Every time she came to visit, the house was in turmoil. Everything had to be scrubbed within an inch of its life, and my sister Audrey and I had to give up our bed and the little washstand we shared at the top of the stairs. Even the top had to be cleared off, so my collection of little stones I cherished...small little stones I picked up on the farm and which I loved dearly, had to be put in a little paper bag and tucked away for

keeping in a safe place. Audrey’s hand mirror and comb, too, had to find a new home for Aunt Lizzie’s visit. Even though she was his sister, Father was always in a lather when Aunt Lizzie came for her yearly visit. She insisted on bringing him something which served no earthly purpose, and which she thought he shouldn’t live without. And often the hand-me-down box, usually included a present for Father which made little or no sense whatsoever. Like the kimono. Father had never laid eyes on a kimono before, but he in-

sisted on wearing it when we had neighbours in for euchre one Saturday night. Even Mother couldn’t talk him out of putting it on, but when Uncle Alec after dealing out the cards, asked Father what in tarnation he had on over his shirt and trousers, Father decided the kimono just wasn’t for him. When Aunt Lizzie visited us in Renfrew County, she never failed to bring Father some outlandish gift, which she insisted was just what he needed. One summer it was a dress shirt with a high round celluloid collar, which Father had to wear to church the Sunday she was there. It took both Mother and Aunt Lizzie to button it around his neck, and when he got home he said his head ached and his ears were ringing. He never wore the shirt again. I thought the small stiff straw hat with the narrow brim, and the narrow black ribbon looked much better than the big old tattered one Father wore around the

farm. Aunt Lizzie bought it at Walker’s Store in Renfrew and she never let Father forget that she had paid a whole .75 cents for it! That didn’t make him like it any better, especially when he saw the identical hat on a woman in the Lutheran Church one Sunday! Well, one summer, Aunt Lizzie arrived, and as usual, the house was in a turmoil. She re-arranged the furniture without even an if-you-please to Mother, all of which was promptly moved back where it belonged the minute the train left Renfrew station. That year, Aunt Lizzie told Father that she wanted to go into Renfrew to do some shopping for him, as what she had in mind was too bulky to pack in her cow-hide suitcases. Father wasn’t too pleased, but Mother told him to get it over with...there would be no living with his sister until she had her way. And off they went in the Model T on the Saturday. I couldn’t wait to see what Aunt Lizzie had in mind for

Father. When they got home, Father was like a thunder cloud, changed into his bib overalls and headed for the barn. Aunt Lizzie came in with a shoe box under her arm. She opened it on the kitchen table, and there was a pair of men’s shoes the like of which I had never seen before. They were black shiny patent leather, with white leather insets under the laces, and the toes were so pointed, Emerson said you could kick the eyes out of a snake at 50 paces! Aunt Lizzie insisted Father wear them to church the next day, which he did with great reluctance, but the minute he got home, they were exchanged for his black well-worn work boots. Aunt Lizzie said he should wear them all day to break them in. Father sat and looked at the shoes for the longest time, and I could tell he was See MARY page 9

Brockville Police Service introduces new K-9 officer to city EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Brockville Police Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest K-9 officer, Chase, has been on the beat since May 15. Constable Jeffrey Rean, Chaseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handler, was all smiles the morning of May 16 as Chase was first introduced to the community. The Belgian Malinois will be two years old in July.

thinking long and hard. He put the new shoes back on and headed for the barn to do the Sunday night chores. When he came in for supper, you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize the new black and white leather shoes. They were covered with manure, grass and mud, and you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell where the white insets started and the black toes began. Even Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s socks were ready for the Monday washing! I knew without question, Father who was meticulous about both himself and the barns, had deliberately ruined the shoes. Aunt Lizzie flew into a fit, grabbed the shoes and went out to the rain barrel with a whisk and a rag. She agreed then they should only be worn to church on Sunday. Her train left before the week was out, and she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t around to see if Father was in his new shoes at the Lutheran Church. Like the kimono, the shirt with the celluloid collar, and the straw hat, the shoes vanished, never to be seen again on the farm at Northcote.

TIES reaches to cosmic heights with Music Monday EMC News - The Thousand Islands Elementary School (TIES) gym was exploding with excitement as the students tried to be patient. Monday, May 6, was Music Monday, and they were about to embark on an adventure beyond their wildest dreams. All of the students were there, along with a number of dignitaries, as they waited for the podcast to begin. As a group, they would be joining with schools throughout Canada for the unique opportunity to sing live with astronaut Colonel Chris Hadfield as he broadcast a special song to them from the International Space Station (ISS). “Today is definitely the opportunity of a lifetime for us,” said Kristin Hambleton, Grade 3/4 teacher at TIES. “The kids

picked the song up very quickly. It was nice to have the video and lyrics available so they could all sing along.” The song, called “Is Someone Singing”, was co-written by Hadfield and Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies. Designed to be educational as well as inspirational, it talks not only about the experience of going into space and staying on the ISS, but also asks everyone to join their voices in song in support of those aboard it. “Thank you Canada for making music with me,” said Hadfield from the ISS. “I can see our nation from the International Space Station, like the song says, and it’s just a wonderful joining of human invention and human challenge and creativity all together. To be able to write music helps strengthen the very

soul of people. Some of the oldest relics we’ve found of human invention, way back when people lived in caves, were musical instruments. It isn’t just ancient, it’s necessary to humanity, and to be able to share it with you from this wonderful laboratory in space, with Canadians right across the country, is just so special to me.” Hambleton’s family has a unique connection to Hadfield. “My father-in-law taught Chris Hadfield when he was in Grade 8 while he was attending a school for the gifted in the Toronto area,” said Hambleton. “Basically, my father-in-law said that he was a very creative, driven, energetic, focused, motivated student.” Suddenly, the air was filled with the sound of a guitar and one man singing from high above

Kristin Hambleton’s Grade 3/4 class discovered that their teacher had a special tie to astronaut Colonel Chris Hadfield as they participated in Music Monday at TIES on May 6. them. Overjoyed, the students burst into song as they watched a projection of Hadfield on the gym wall. “I can hear your voices bouncing off the moon!” they sang. While he sang and answered questions, Hadfield floated his guitar, his pick and himself around, turning upside down as he played and letting everyone remember that he really was in a weightless environment far overhead.

But windows of opportunity cannot last forever, and the broadcast stopped as the ISS floated out of range. However, no one would forget this amazing experience. All of Hambleton’s class decided that, in 20 years, they would be working on the ISS and that they would be sure to bring their children there for “Take Your Kid to Work Day”. “Everyone can write a song, everyone can sing a song,” said Hadfield. “Go out and be a sing-

EMC Events - With a slight drizzle in the air, mountain biker Rob Wright of North Augusta left the Brockville Museum to participate in this year’s Bicycle Poker Run, held recently. As cyclists followed a map they picked up cards at various stops along the route to put together for a poker hand, with the best hands winning prizes. Awaiting these recreational cyclists on the return to the Brockville Museum was the availability of a barbecue on the patio. R0012086176

Healing Arts Workshop: find balance in an out-of-balance world May 25 EMC News - It’s no surprise that our youth are suffering from anxiety and depression at an alarming rate, or that our seniors are being diagnosed in record numbers with some form of dementia or Alzheimer’s. This fast-paced world is making us sick and we are losing our minds, bodies and souls in the process. Why is it that we ignore very basic and simple ways that can help with these mental health problems? Instead of prescribing highly addictive medication that does nothing more than mask the problem, let’s try using music, drama, writing and movement or dance to address problems with mood, memory, anxiety or fear. This workshop seeks to teach

you how to use the arts, aromatherapy, games and music to change not only your mood but your life. It all starts with learning to be silent, mindful and learning how to pray. The negative clouds will disappear and your memory will improve as you practice meditation and mindfulness daily. Add to that some music, dance, writing and art work and you have the perfect prescription to transform your life from out of balanced to balanced and happy. Arts For Life Psychotherapy is offering the fifth in a series of six workshops to give you the opportunity to practice in a safe environment, these very things that will change the way you look at your

life and your destiny on this earth. Offered in the Community Room at the 1000 Islands Mall in Brockville on Saturday May 25 from 1-3 p.m. (bring a yoga mat or blanket for the meditation/prayer portion of the workshop). Did you know that dancing is good for your brain and your memory? Research has found that singing (whether you can carry a tune or not) helps us to remember all kinds of things. This is what the incredible research into the brain is telling us. It is pointing us all back to the basics. All we need to do is to engage in the creative arts and being creative more often and practice being quiet, so that we can reconnect to our inner spirit and

find the balance we are meant to have. The proceeds from this workshop will go toward purchasing One World Futbols, the indestructible soccer ball, to take to the Ebenezer Life Center in Kenya, Africa and to the Compassion Project in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. If you buy one ($39.99) another one will be donated to the orphanage. Please visit their site at www. oneworldfutbol.com. Register for this workshop at www.artsforlifepsychotherapy.com/contact or by calling Laurie Bowen, B.Ed., C.D.C., M.S.W., R.S.W., Creative Arts Therapist of Arts For Life Psychotherapy at 613-349-1638. Submitted by Laurie Bowen.

EMC News — May 1 was Ontario Doctors’ Day and Brockville General Hospital said thank you to its more than 100 physicians with special messages of congratulations from both the BGH Acting President & CEO, and the Chief of Medical Staff. All BGH doctors also received free coffee all day at Eleanor’s Café, courtesy of the Brockville General Volunteer Association (BGVA). Ontario declared May 1 Doctors’ Day in 2012, and since then other provinces have followed suit. Ontario chose May 1 to commemorate the birthday of Dr. Emily Stowe, the first female physician in Canada.

Host families needed for Japanese students

Clarification EMC Editorial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: The following information has been provided with regards to a story which appeared in the April 25 edition of the St. Lawrence News EMC. Camren Gilmour-Lee is now 15 months of age and has stage four liver and lung cancer, hepatoblastoma. It was dormant when he was in Katelynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s womb and was first discovered on March 26. He currently has weekly Chemo treatments on Tuesdays and every third Tuesday is a big Chemo treatment. To date he has had three blood transfusions. Medical staff has tried to surgically remove a 9 cm tumor on his liver as well and he had to have a port inserted to provide medication so he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be full of needles. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sad thing whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on and I will do whatever I can to help this family cover their medical costs. They also have a baby girl due July 11.

to work one morning when his car was hit by a moose resulting in him being paralyzed from the neck down. As the microphone was adjusted, Fletcher looked very relaxed and used humour while speaking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always impressive to me to see (able bodied) people help those with disabilities, because it shows empathy,â&#x20AC;? expressed Fletcher. He mentioned that working together to make avenues available to those who are disabled gives people the opportunity to reach their full potential. After his accident, the doctors told Fletcher that he may not live and if he did live he would be institutionalized for the rest of his life. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept that. Using a letterboard, Fletcher made his feelings known. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go into an institution,â&#x20AC;? said Fletcher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Manitoba they had a project called Self Managed Cure. The government provided money directly to the individual for it to be distributed to the caregivers. Very innovative and very empowering! This allowed me to go back to university to get my MBA. Now, I will say that no matter what situation you find yourself in, education is the best investment.â&#x20AC;? Fast forwarding, Fletcher commented on how he became involved in politics, starting with university and later seeking a provincial nomination. Then he decided to run federally for the Canadian Alliance; the parties merged and Fletcher was elected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is still a stereotype with people in wheelchairs,â&#x20AC;? said Fletcher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that is changing, but even 10 years ago we made sure that all my (political) literature didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show a wheelchair, or talk about disability, we just said, this is what we will do for you. In fact when I would come up to a door, people were surprised. They would turn to whoever was with me thinking they were the candidate.â&#x20AC;? He talked about an interview on a radio station when he was asked why people should vote for a person who was basically unknown. With his quick wit, Fletcher said that he has a physical disability and is

only paralyzed from the neck down, not the neck up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The point Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to make is that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing something that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m qualified and able to do,â&#x20AC;? stated Fletcher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coming to Ottawa, it turned out that there were problems with accessibility; the West Entrance (Parliament Building) curb, elevators and the rules of the House of Commons had to be changed. Only members and officers of Parliament are allowed to be on the floor of the House of Commons. They changed the rules for my caregiver to be on the floor.â&#x20AC;? Fletcher feels that people with sight, hearing issues or physical disabilities should become more visible in the communities allowing society to develop a more accepting attitude and understanding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More people will realize that by making some places accessible does not only help the guy or gal in the wheelchair, it helps mom and dad with the kids in the stroller, it helps a store clerk to carry inventory into the store and it helps people later on in their life span,â&#x20AC;? said Fletcher. He also touched on housing and medical claims. With medical claims, he mentioned that proper equipment for the disabled is essential. Settling for a cushion that is inferior and cost less does not equate to the more expensive effective cushion which will alleviate the need to go to the hospital because of pressure sores. This is only an example of what the disabled deal with every day. In closing, Fletcher again gave those present the occasion to see and hear his inspiration for life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let me just say that we live in the best country in the world and it is the best time in human history to be alive and every Canadian should have the opportunity to live their lives to their fullest potential,â&#x20AC;? said Fletcher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will end by saying that those practitioners that said I should be institutionalized, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it would be in the Parliament of Canada.â&#x20AC;?

Good clean fun coming as TI Playhouse presents SUDS By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC Entertainment - The Thousand Islands Playhouse is opening its season with a bang by bringing in SUDS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Rocking 60s Musical Soap Opera. The play tells the fantastical story of a poor young girl who works in a laundromat and is suffering through the worst birthday ever, when guardian angels swoop down to help her through. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a part of it. Included in here for all you early to mid-1960s aficionados are more than 40 of your top favourite songs of the era, just rocking and bopping and begging for you to sing along. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what we want,â&#x20AC;? said Ashlie Corcoran, Artistic Director of the Playhouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a lively, fun, upbeat show for the whole family, and the idea is for everyone to let loose and really have some fun.â&#x20AC;? The performance takes place entirely in an old-fashioned washeteria, where poor Cindy (a sweet, impressionable girl (Alison MacDonald) who dreams of a brilliant future but fears it just might not come out in the wash) is preparing to celebrate her birthday.

Walkathon raises funds for canine program EMC News - Daphne is a reserved brown tabby who has been with us since she came in as a four-month old kitten in the summer of 2010. Now three years old, she has spent most of her life in our shelter. While she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actively seek attention from the staff, she is happy to be the comforting friend to all the other cats who come to nap snuggled up to her. If you have the time and patience to devote to her, she just might be the girl for you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or for a cat you already have who is a bit lonely and needs a feline friend. To meet Daphne please visit the Gananoque & District Humane Society at 85 Hwy. 32 north of the 401 and Gananoque. Hours are 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Saturday, and our special low-price Adoptathon is still on! For the dog lovers: weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re holding our new shelter walk A Walk in the Park(Way) on Saturday May 25. The walk is to raise funds for our Canine Program, so please bring your dogs to the walk to help out their less lucky friends! Although it is not generally well-known, the Gananoque & District Humane Society has a Canine Program which allows us to look after dogs that come into our care, mostly from TLTI, in qualified foster homes. This gives dogs a family setting in which they can be cared for medically and socially, until we can find them a suitable forever home. Marty the Beagle, is a shining example of this program and who we successfully adopted out. The dogs most often coming into our care are hunting dogs such as beagles and hounds on the loose, found roaming in Township Leeds & the 1000 Islands,

which is one of the areas we cover. The walk will raise funds for this program. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping for 100 walkers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; see you there. Registration (free) starts at 9:30 a.m. at the Rockport Rec Hall on the 1000 Islands Parkway at the Escott-Rockport Road, half way between Brockville and Gananoque, and the event ends at 2 p.m. Walk a little or a lot. You may walk a little or a lot, up to 3.5 km and return on the grassy North Lane and bicycle path, and walk at any time once registered, so long as you are back at the Rec Hall by 2 p.m. To get pledge sheets please drop into the shelter, at post offices, veterinary offices, and some local stores and restaurants in Gananoque, Rockport, Seeleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay, Lansdowne and Mallorytown, or email humanesociety@bellnet. ca or call 613-382-1512. There will be lots of free treats for your dogs, and a BBQ for you. Please join the fun!

Leadercast 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an experience not to be forgotten By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle - Chick-fil-A-Leadercast 2013 was an amazing, inspiring experience. As a first timer there, I found it to be moving, inspiring and motivating. From Andy Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message of â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are we doing? Why are we doing it? Where do we fit in?â&#x20AC;? to David Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notion of getting to that moment of serenity and clarity without a crisis evoking it. Each presentation was powerful and both left an impression and some very valid points to think about. All presentations surrounded the theme of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conference of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simply Lead.â&#x20AC;? Held May 10 at the Centennial Road Standard Church, the Leadercast is broadcast from Atlanta, Georgia. Audiences worldwide were tuned in via satellite and web technologies - 120,000 people in 750 sites. This is the third year the Leadercast has been offered in Brockville.

Stanley is a And while all the leadership author presentations were and communicator, empowering, those while Allen is the in attendance (and author of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Getting there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t many Marlaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Moments Things Doneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and empty seats at all) is a productivity were all invited to expert. These two participate in an men were only a few of the many who spoke that activity which saw funds donated to the local food day. Other influential leaders and experts who bank. appeared on the screens for those in Brockville Local organizations featured informational included John Maxwell, well-known author and booths for people to investigate during leadership expert, former chair and chief executive intermissions - including the Brockville Rotary officer Jack Welch; Duke University head menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club, the Brockville and Area YMCA, the St. basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski; Navy Seal and Lawrence Shakespeare Festival, among others. star of Act of Valor, LCDR Rorke Denver; former In the complex world in which we all live, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; Dr. Henry with growth comes complexity, Stanley pointed Cloud, author and leadership consultant; and 2012 out. We all need to find ways to navigate through the London Olympic gold medalist in track and field complexity to simplicity. Dr. Cloudâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggestions Sanya Richards-Ross. included looking at life and projects, in terms of pruning a rose bush - prune off the sick, prune off the good, but not the best, and leave the best as it needs the resources of the bush to thrive.

Allen spoke on creating room in your mind in order to fully reach absolute potential. Noting while at work there may be crises, things that need to be dealt with right away, email after email, when those have been dealt with; most people still have a mind full of items. He noted there are only ever 24 hours in a day and to create space to do more, people need to clear their mind. To deal with those to-do list items taking up valuable space in their brains. For me, so many messages resonated. The day was such a great personal growth experience, as well as a networking opportunity and a chance to hear from some great leaders in terms of how to â&#x20AC;&#x153;simply lead.â&#x20AC;? Next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Leadercast date has already been set, May 9, 2014. It is a day I have already marked on my calendar. It is an experience and an opportunity I would recommend for anyone. There is something from the day that each and every person could take away. An impression and a message that resonates.

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

‘I received an offer on my home: Now what?’ the offer in a calm, rational manner,” says Dorner. Once you receive an offer: • your realtor is required to show you every offer submitted on your property. She or he will make an appointment with you to discuss the offer or offers, • most offers are submitted on a form prepared by a local real estate board or association based on the Agreement of Purchase and Sale created by the Ontario Real Estate Association, • if the offer was drawn up by another realtor he or she may present it in a meeting with you and your realtor. The realtor(s) will walk you through the language of the offer step-by-step, • thoroughly review it, then discuss it with your realtor and of course, have the opportunity to think about the offer and talk privately, • as with any offer, you have three choices: accept, reject, or

If you choose to accept and sign the offer, you have signed a legally binding contract to sell your home, subject to any conditions. If you reject the offer, the buyer may choose to submit another offer for your review and response. Finally, if you “sign back” proposed changes to the buyer’s price or terms through a counter-offer, the buyer then has the option of accepting your terms, rejecting them or submitting yet another counteroffer. This process of exchanging counter-offers continues until both parties agree completely, or until one of you ends the negotiation. No matter what you decide to do with an offer to buy your home; your realtor is there to guide you through the process and make sure that you are comfortable with your

EMC Business - When you get the call from your realtor saying that an offer has been submitted on your home, your first reaction will probably be excitement. But soon after, the reality that you are going to be moving out of your home will set in, which may spur some conflicting emotions. Next, you will have a number of questions, such as, how much the buyer is offering, if there are any terms or conditions on the offer and if your realtor will have to get into a series of negotiations. “Remember, this is primarily a business transaction so try and keep the emotion out of it. Focus on evaluating the nuts and bolts of the offer, without letting your emotional attachment to the home influence your judgment,” says Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA). “Your realtor will act as an intermediary between you and the buyer, which will help you assess

Canal fees to be frozen for three years at 2008 levels main frozen for the next three years at 2008 levels. “Since the beginning of our consultation process on canal fees, we have been committed to listening and acting in the best interests of the residents who live, work and visit our canals,” said Minister Kent. “We recognize the importance of canals to Canada’s heritage, the tourism industry and the thousands of people who use them each year. That is why following consultations with government Members of Caucus who live along the canals, I am pleased to announce that Parks Canada will freeze lockage fees for three years.” “During this time, Parks Canada and I will work with local Members of Parliament, community leaders and the tourism industry to develop and

implement an improved operating model to ensure the long term financial sustainability of the canals operations. These long term solutions will need to address all aspects of the canals operations.” As part of the long-term financial sustainability of the canals operations, Parks Canada is already considering new visitor opportunities that will benefit a broad range of canals users, and create new sources of revenue, all while maintaining support for our tourism operators and industry.

Economic Action Plan (EAP) 2013 proposes an additional investment of $70 million over three years in YES to support 5,000 more paid internships. This is further to the extra $50 million that was invested through EAP 2012 to enhance YES with a new initiative that connects young Canadians with jobs that are in high demand and helps them develop tangible skills and gain work experience. Youth employment programs are part of the federal government’s broader strategy to create an educated, skilled and flexible workforce.

“Today’s announcement is tremendous news,” says MerrickvilleWolford Mayor Doug Struthers. “The efforts to date represent a joint effort: the public, the corridor mayors’ group and most importantly the Members of Parliament along the Rideau who had direct consultation with Minister Kent, while constructively bringing this to the attention of the Prime Minister’s Office. The federal government’s commitment bodes well for the development of a long term sustainable model for the Rideau Canal.”

Summer jobs for youth created in Leeds-Grenville EMC Business - Students in the region will gain valuable work experience this summer, as a result of the federal government’s Canada Summer Jobs initiative. Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville, made the announcement last week on behalf of Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development. “Creating summer jobs for students benefits not only youth and employers, but also local economies across the country,” said Brown. “Canada Summer Jobs is yet another excellent example of how our government is creating jobs and economic growth.” Canada Summer Jobs helps students gain the skills and experience they need to be successful now and in the future, while earning money for the upcoming school year. In Leeds-Grenville 96 jobs are being created with an investment of $249,832. It is an important part of the federal government’s Youth Employment Strategy (YES), which also includes the Skills Link and Career Focus programs. With an annual budget of more than $300 million, YES helps youth

“I commend member of Parliament Gord Brown for his strong advocacy and hard work on behalf of the many constituents who contacted my office about the proposed increase in canal fees,” says Steve Clark, member of Provincial Parliament for LeedsGrenville. “News that fees will be frozen at 2008 levels for three years and that there will be further public consultations will come as a great relief to the many operators in the tourism sector in Leeds-Grenville for whom the Rideau Canal is so important.”

EMC News - Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville, last week expressed his pleasure with the announcement by Environment Minister Peter Kent that Rideau Canal fees will be frozen for three years at 2008 levels. “I and my colleagues have been working long and hard on this issue and I am happy to announce that our request for consultation on the future of the canal has been answered,” he notes in a press release. “This will give us all time to take a long look at what we can do to improve the canal.” In the release Kent, Canada’s Environment Minister and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, announced that recreational lockage fees along Canada’s historic canals will re-

Hospital acquires Canada’s first state-of-the-art Sysmex XN-2000 Automated Hematology Analyzer EMC News - The Brockville General Hospital and Sysmex Canada, Inc. last week announced the hospital’s installation and implementation of a Sysmex XN-2000 Automated Hematology Analyzer. This is the first analyzer of the new Sysmex XNSeries suite of products to be installed in Canada. This revolutionary compact automated hematology analyzer provides the hospital’s clinical laboratory with expanded clinical and operational capabilities to meet changing workload demands and testing complexity that may accompany an aging population; while withstanding future medical technologist shortages. BGH is a five-site community hospital offering full acute care services, including emergency and intensive care, medical/surgical care, and obstetrical care. The hospital recently marked 125 years of service to the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville. Sysmex is a global leader in clinical laboratory systemization and solutions, including clinical diagnostics,

proximately 34,000 CBC hematology samples annually. Therefore, it was imperative for us to purchase technology with a history of known reliability. Less down time means continuity

of care. The analyzer’s simplified processes also make operation easier, giving us the flexibility to schedule personnel without the intensive training needed to maintain proficiency on

different types of analyzers,” says Susan Pugh, BGH Lab Manager. “Above all, this new generation of technology provides us with expanded clinical capabilities that help our physicians impact treatment guidelines, care pathways, patient flow, and therefore quality outcomes,” adds Dr. Naguib Yassa, BGH Chief of Pathology. The hospital’s purchasing decision was determined via a competitive due-diligence process whose committee members included clinical laboratory experts in the areas of laboratory medicine, medical technology and information systems. “We trust the reliability of our Sysmex hematology analyzers, coupled with our post installation and implementation support will help Brockville General Hospital continue to achieve the mission of its founding leaders more than 125 years ago. We are proud to be a part of this heritage and look forward to serving as a valuable partner to Brockville General Hospital,” says Carl Rocha, General Manager, Sysmex Canada, Inc.

For the month of May artist Celia Kainz (left) and potter Jan Gazley, seated, have their artistic work on display in the lobby of the Brockville Arts Centre. This exhibition opened on Wednesday, May 8 with Kainz providing new paintings reflecting the changes in the world, the slight shift of the earth’s course through the universe relative to the weather, plant, animal, birds and human society in revolt against what is and what it could be. Kainz’s painting is referred to as The Juggler. As for Gazley, holding a ceramic piece, her techniques are farreaching, eclectic using mark-making, carving, embossing with finishes of coloured slips and multi-coloured glazes.

EMC News - Many members of the Gananoque community will be feeling saddened as Dr. Brian Tunnicliffe moves into a new phase of adventure in his life. After 45 years of practice, he has decided to retire. A reception was held for his departure on May 1 at Carveth Care Centre in Gananoque, and many people in town came out to attend. No one could resist signing the oversized good-bye cards, and everyone wanted a chance for a last personal moment with him before he moved on. Gerry Bennett, Fire Chief of Gananoque and TLTI, asked the doctor just how long he’d been practicing. “I’ve been a doctor for 45 years, I’ve been in Gananoque for 40 years, and I have enjoyed every minute of it,” said Dr. Tunnicliffe. “Medicine is such a stimulating profession to be in and it’s advancing and changing at a dramatic pace.” But he isn’t planning to just waste away after leaving his office and patients behind. He has plenty of activities waiting for him and can’t wait to get started. “The golf courses are open, the river is open, I’ve got my bicycle on the way and I’ll be doing some motorcycling as well,” said Dr. Tunnicliffe. And his wife Sue, best known as a local photographer, is more than happy to bring him into her active lifestyle. Having him home will be a joy and not a burden. “Brian has some training to do,” said Sue Tunnicliffe. “He has to get in shape for our bike trip from Montreal to Quebec City this August. His retirement is well deserved, after 45 years in medicine. He has so many things he wants to do and I understand I’m supposed to have a list as long as your arm for him to complete, or so people have been telling me. We hope to also do boating, some travelling, there’s an old tractor that he’s been working on quite a bit. But, it’s time, and he deserves it.” At first he wasn’t really looking for-

Shedding a little light on shade gardens A last piece of advice: most shade plants require rich, cool soil. To create the right conditions for them, spread a thick layer of shredded leaves around their bases in the fall. As they slowly decompose and become humus, the leaves fertilize the soil. FERNS Finely cut fronds create a spectacular effect. BLEEDING HEART Pretty pink or white heart-shaped flowers distinguish this shrub. HOSTA Although able to grow just about anywhere, it flourishes well in the shade. Experienced gardeners mix different varieties in shaded areas to create beautiful colour contrasts. HEUCHERA Dozens of showy varieties feature richly coloured leaves.

R0011997538_0328

Many amateur gardeners have difficulty choosing plants for a shady area. Although the options were extremely limited up until not so long ago, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very different story these days. Now, garden centres offer a wide variety of suitable plants that add beauty and interest to any type of flowerbed. The first step in creating a shade garden is to realize that â&#x20AC;&#x153;shadeâ&#x20AC;? is not always easy to define. Very few budding gardeners can say if the site in question is shaded or partly shaded. Indeed, shade isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t static and varies greatly throughout the day and season. Over a few days during the summer season, note how many hours of indirect sunlight and total shade the area receives. Then choose suitable plant varieties with care, taking into consideration leaf texture and plant shapes, Fern, bleeding heart, and hosta are which are important factors in any shade shade-loving plants for the trickier corgarden. ners of your yard.

Your dream garden in eight steps Creating the garden of your dreams means either calling on the services of a landscape professional or diving headfirst into the project yourself. Of course, landscaping a yard requires a great deal of time, but it is definitely a great opportunity to let your imagination run wild. Before you get down to work, here is a list of all the necessary steps to follow to turn your dream into reality. 1. Planning is vital Use your survey or certificate of location to check the site for any easements. Take note of hours of full and partial sunshine, undesirable views, which corners to highlight and which to hide. Find out about current municipal regulations concerning landscaping. Have your soil analyzed, locate the areas that are exposed to wind, and determine your hardiness zone. 2. Identify your needs How will you use the space? Do you want to install a pool or a spa? Do you need space for a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playground? Would you like to create a water garden or a dining area? Hang a hammock or plant a vegetable garden? Think carefully about all your needs. 3. Make a plan

Using a pencil, eraser, and graph paper, draw a scaled plan of your property. Include the house, shed, pathways, driveway, and any trees and shrubs you want to keep. Then add all the elements of your new layout, taking into account the vegetation and structures you wish to include. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to sketch out a variety of plans; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easier to make changes on paper than it is once the work has started. 4. Choose your plants with care Before buying anything, take the time to make a list of all the plants you have chosen, including the hours of sunshine they need and the care they require. Be sure to consider the size of the vegetation once it has reached maturity â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this is especially important if you want to plant trees and shrubs. 5. Spread out the work Spread the work out over more than a year so that your project doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t develop into a source of stress. Give priority to the jobs that require qualified workers and any machinery (pool, water garden, parking area). Establish a realistic timetable that takes your budget and your time availability into consideration. 6. Consult the experts

Landscaping is an investment that could increase the value of your property. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to consult an expert if you have any questions. It is better to spend a few dollars straight away rather than have to redo already completed work. 7. Stay in control From the moment your garden starts to take shape, you will have to start maintaining it. Nomaintenance gardens are a bit of a myth. Weeding, watering, and pruning can take either a few minutes every day or a few hours once a week â&#x20AC;&#x201D;so, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for the work to pile up. Learn to delegate; family members can contribute to yard upkeep, and gardeners can be hired for weeding and for bigger seasonal jobs. 8. Enjoy it The last rule is definitely the best: have fun! Make the most of your dream yard and enjoy your favorite pastimes there. You deserve it!

A successful landscaping project can increase the value of your property.

A buying guide for budding gardeners into your garden. PERENNIALS Purchase perennials in the spring so they can have all summer to develop. Before bringing home any plants, be sure to check that the soil in the pot is moist and that there are no weeds or moss on the surface — those are an indication of poor drainage or that the plant has been potted for too long. SHRUBS Foliage is the first thing to inspect when buying a shrub. Look for good colour, and make sure the branches are

evenly distributed and have abundant foliage at the base. Avoid specimens with sparse, long, or unequal growth and with few or no visible buds, as these are a sign that the shrub has lacked water and nutrients during development. Take

the shrub out of its pot and check its root system for rotting or parasites. ROSES Gently shake the main branch of a rose bush to ensure it is well rooted. A well-developed specimen will possess

strong, evenly distributed branches, with masses of healthy, vigorous foliage with good colour. Check for parasites or diseases, such as rust and black spot, as bushes infected with them will never recover.

Unless you’re an expert gardener, you might not find it easy to make the right choices when the time comes to buy plants at a garden centre. There is such a wide variety of vegetable seedlings and annual and perennial decorative plants! If you don’t have a plant encyclopedia at hand as you browse the greenhouse, you may get lost in the maze of Latin names. A first piece of advice would be to avoid any plants that don’t look like they’re thriving, as they probably won’t survive the transplantation process. They could also import disease and parasites

Thoroughly inspect any plant you’re planning to buy from a garden centre. PHOTO: comstock images / THINKSTOCK

Care in the community and at home is the best place to invest in health care EMC News - Increased investment in the home and community care sector will improve timely access to care for a greater number of people across the province. The South East Community Care Access Centre is pleased by the Ontario government’s $260 million investment which will strengthen the sector as a whole, and benefit people who want to live, age and receive care in their own homes. The care needs of patients are often better met in their homes and care at home provides better value for Ontario’s taxpayers. As our population ages and age-related chronic conditions rise, a strong home and community care sector will be an increasingly critical part of a sustainable healthcare system. Investing in home and community care will make the biggest difference for people. Ontario’s 14 CCACs care for more than 637,000 people annually and are relieving pressure on other parts of the health-care system. The CCAC is not only serving more patients – they are increasingly serving more vulnerable and

complex patients with higher care needs. CCACs work with their partners to ensure that the government’s investment is used to help those who need the help the most. Funding is being boosted to provide the nursing services and personal support workers required to support those with high care needs. Many patients already receive care in less than five days of CCAC assessment. And with this investment, the CCACs will be able to achieve this target for even more people. CCACs are committed to maximizing this investment and providing value for every health-care dollar spent. In fact, over 91 cents of every dollar goes to direct patient care, including care coordination. The South East Community Care Access Centre and our nurses, physiotherapists, social workers, registered dietitians, occupational therapists, speech therapists and personal support workers are committed to improving the lives of Ontarians who need our care. Submitted by the South East Community Care Access Centre.

On Jumpstart Day, select Canadian Tire stores across the country will celebrate and raise additional funds for Jumpstart with special events and activities for customers. All money raised will be donated to Jumpstart, helping Canadian kids get involved in organized sport. Donations to Jumpstart help the one in three Canadian families that cannot afford to enrol their children in organized sports and recreation. All funds raised through the May Red Ball campaign and on Jumpstart Day stay within the local community to help local children. To date, 2561 children in Brockville have been able to participate in sports and recreation because of Jumpstart. Over the past eight years, Jumpstart has helped more than 580,000 kids across Canada by removing the financial barriers that prevent children from participating. Canadian Tire invites the Brockville community to get involved and make a difference in the lives of local kids. R0012114595_0523

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People always associate a butcher shop with being more expensive, when in fact we are cheaper,â&#x20AC;? the couple says. Offering exclusive items the shop is a bit of a specialty one. Being in the new location has enabled them to offer so much more to their faithful and regular customers. The easier to get to locale has increased their business so much so the couple has gone from a staff of three to a staff now of seven, plus Rick and Tanya. The success the shop has been able to savour in can be attributed to the hard work the couple have put into their business. They worked seven days a week in fact, until their ďŹ rst child arrived in 2002. This young family now has two young children. Starting out in this line of work in high school as a co-op student, Rick has been a butcher since 1991. For Tanya this was a whole new experience. The couple opened The Butcher Shop at their previous location in the Brockville Shopping Centre, March 15, 1999. And 14 years, almost to the day, March 14, 2013, their hard work allowed them the opportunity to purchase their own building and grow on the over decade of hard work they put in to their business and community. The couple was blown away by the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show of support, as after moving to their new location they were

Their base of regular customers has grown and those regular customers are now coming more often to the easier to get to location. One woman even comes in each day to shop.

Marking tragic anniversary costly for taxpayers EMC Lifestyle – This week I am going to bring you up to date with regard to an ongoing story which has reached an expensive conclusion for Canadian taxpayers. I have written about this twice previously in recent years. The Canadian Museum of Civilization, located in the Hull sector of Gatineau, is currently preparing an exhibition on the tragic story of the ocean liner ‘Empress of Ireland’. The displays, which are scheduled to open to the public next year, will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the vessel in the St. Lawrence River in 1914. The 99th anniversary is coming up later this month. In the early morning hours of May 29, 1914 the Empress sank near Rimouski, Quebec after colliding with

the Norwegian collier ‘Storstad’ in thick fog. The 14,000 ton ship capsized and sank in just 15 minutes taking 1,012 people to a watery grave. Among the dead were 840 passengers. That’s eight more than the number of passengers who perished when the ‘Titanic’ famously struck an iceberg and sank in the Atlantic, off the coast of Canada, two years earlier. The centennial of the Titanic tragedy was observed on April 15 of last year and made news around the world. The reason Titanic had a greater loss of life (more than 1,500 perished) than the Empress is because she carried far more crew members. More people to care for the needs of her well heeled passengers! The Empress was mainly an im-

migrant ship which brought ordinary people to the New World. Her sinking was our nation’s biggest maritime disaster. Yet in typical Canadian fashion the name and the tragic story of the big ship isn’t well known. I blame that partly on a system that doesn’t teach enough of our young people Canadian history.

her siblings in 1914, just months before the outbreak of World War I. She was a few weeks away from her fourth birthday at the time she left her native England. My grandma, who died in June 1995 (on her 86th birthday), told me she really didn’t remember much about the long and exhausting journey that eventually brought them to a new life. Because of lack of good record keeping in those days there is some discrepancy as to the exact dates. What is known is that the Hardy family came to Canada aboard the Empress of Ireland. What makes it especially interesting for us is that my grandmother always said the Empress tragedy occurred while the vessel was returning to Liverpool on the home leg of the same voyage that brought her and the rest of the Hardy family to Canada. That much she was absolutely certain about! Next year’s 100th anniversary observances will be keyed by the planned display at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Some controversy swirls around the exhibition. That’s because the key artifacts were salvaged from the submerged wreck by Montreal diver Philippe Beaudry during expeditions before laws were enacted to regulate the practice. In a front page story April 29 the Ottawa Citizen newspaper revealed the museum paid Beaudry $1.75 million to acquire his collection. The artifacts carried an appraised value of $3.075 million. It is thought a tax receipt from the federal government may have accounted for the remainder? The acquisition, financed in part by a $425,000 grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage, concludes protracted negotiations between Beaudry and the federal government. Included in the sale is the ship’s brass fog bell which is considered “the jewel of the collection.” It alone was appraised at $1.75 million. Other artifacts include navigation equipment, furnishings

The simple act of recycling has more impact on the environment than the average Canadian thinks. The amount of wood and paper North Americans throw away each year is enough to heat five million homes for 200 years.

and personal objects, china and silverware, documents and books and even a remnant of the ship itself. The sale of salvaged objects from death ships such as Titanic and the Empress of Ireland always draws flak from critics who argue historic wrecks should be left undisturbed as a tribute to the dead. I agree with that thinking! The items involved should have been left where they were. The vessel’s final resting place was rediscovered by divers in 1964, some four kilometres from the shore of Pointe-au-Père, Quebec which is the home of a regional museum commemorating the sinking. The location is 500 kilometres northeast of Montreal. It’s certainly not the fault of the present government. Past administrations bear the shame of ignoring the importance of the wreck and allowing the Empress to be visited by divers who stripped the vessel of untold artifacts (numbering in the hundreds) and sold them to the highest bidder. Clearly our government used tax dollars for the same purpose, something I question. Historic site It wasn’t until 1999 that restrictions were put in place to end the practice. In August 2009 the present Canadian government officially declared the wreck a national historic site. Diving there is now prohibited by law! I have watched just one television documentary about the Empress of Ireland, an excellent PBS production made in 2000 and featuring famed American oceanographer Dr. Robert Ballard. It was Ballard who led the joint American-French expedition that, on Sept. 1, 1985, located Titanic’s final resting place south-east of Newfoundland. To his credit Ballard is not a believer in disturbing shipwrecks. Especially those in which so many died! He is an explorer, but says such sites are “ocean graveyards that should be left as they are.” I know he is appalled at the “looting” of the Titanic site that has occurred over the course of several decades. He was equally angered by the massive haul of artifacts from Empress of Ireland which lies in just 130 feet of water, within easy reach of divers. Due to its depth the Titanic wreck is accessible only to those in mini subs. In something of an irony, numerous recreational divers died during descents to the Empress which developed a reputation for being very dangerous. I think it’s sad the Canadian government took so long to act, allowing private individuals to reap a harvest of items that should have been left where they were. I totally subscribe to Ballard’s feeling that the Empress of Ireland wreck is a gravesite which shouldn’t be disturbed. As Ballard says in the documentary on the Empress, “It is a piece of history. Everything removed diminishes it.” As for my family’s connection to the ship it is estimated today that some one million Canadians are descendants of immigrants who arrived in this country aboard Empress of Ireland. I’m one of them! If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire, he can be reached by email at jeffrey.maguire@ rogers.com.

Eddy and the Stingrays Carleton Place appearance May 25 will assist arena fund By JEFF MAGUIRE

EMC Events - Those who attend an upcoming concert and dance in Carleton Place will find themselves transported back to the roots of rock and roll. The always popular area band ‘Eddy and the Stingrays’, recent inductees into the Brockville and Area Music and Performing Arts Hall of Fame, will perform at Carleton Place and District Community Centre on Saturday night, May 25 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sponsored by the Carleton Place Arena Staff Association the venture will take the form of a 1950s and `60s era dance. It will be held in the main upper hall of the town’s arena complex on Neelin Street. Tickets, at $20 each, are available at the arena office or Graham Shoes, 139 Bridge Street, Carleton Place. Earlier this year the group was inducted into the Brockville and Area Music and Performing Arts Hall of Fame. All proceeds from the venture will go to the Carleton Place Arena Fund which is in place to raise money needed to make long-term improvements to the complex. The arena is one of the main

focal points for activities in the growing town of 10,000. Bob White, senior facilities operator at the arena (he works for the Carleton Place Department of Recreation and Culture), is the chief organizer of the show and dance. White is well known for running numerous fundraising activities in the community, especially music shows. “We expect this to be a really popular show. We are limiting attendance to 300 in order to have a larger dance floor,” White explains. “There is something about that musical era. People come out in groups to enjoy an evening of nostalgia, dancing and fun.” Popular Carleton Place musician and entertainer Jack Denovan will be the emcee for the event. A light lunch will be served as part of the ticket price at approximately 11 p.m. White says a `50s and `60s dance “creates a totally different atmosphere than most (music) events. “A lot of people like to dress up in clothing from that era and of course we

are encouraging that. Buy your tickets, put on your glad rags, come out and have some fun.” White even has a lead for those who wish to purchase clothing made especially for the occasion. He suggests Carleton Place area residents call Bev Hynes at 613-257-5802. “Bev makes some wonderful costumes and she has some available for sale for this event. Poodle skirts, tops, chokers – items that fit the occasion. They aren’t expensive so if you are interested give her a call,” the chief organizer advises. The arena hall will be suitably decorated for the occasion. “Even the bowls for the late night snacks will be made from old (vinyl) records,” White says. Prizes will be awarded to the ‘Best Dressed Couple’ and the ‘Best Dance Couple.’ Great group As for Eddy and the Stingrays, White sums them up in one word “fantastic.” “Eddy hasn’t been out here for some time. He says they are looking forward to playing in Carleton Place again.”

Billed as Canada’s “No. 1 Rock and Roll Show and Dance Band” Eddy and the Stingrays marked their 30th anniversary in 2010. The band has a wealth of experience and they appear at venues across Ontario and the continent, with an emphasis on Eastern Ontario. Eddy and the Stingrays have opened for the fabulous Chubby Checker, appeared at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta and the John Hancock Building in Boston. Over the course of 33 years they have performed at countless provincial, state and county fairs in Canada and the United States. And that is just a glimpse of a lengthy and busy career! Their calendar for this summer already features a dozen other shows in eastern and central Ontario. From Elvis and Buddy Holly, to the Beach Boys, Beatles and everyone in between, Eddy and the Stingrays take

you on a nostalgic journey through the 1950s and 1960s, employing their own fast paced and unique musicianship. In Carleton Place May 25 the band will perform three sets and they will wear three different sets of costumes, White notes. He reiterates that profits from this month’s event will be added to the arena fund. Long-term plans call for an expansion and improvement project in Arena 1 which opened in 1969. As mentioned tickets are available at the arena office on Neelin St. and at Graham Shoes, 139 Bridge St., Carleton Place. There is plenty of free parking at the arena. The hall is air conditioned and it is accessible to the handicapped via an elevator just off the main lobby. Anyone wishing further information is invited to telephone Bob White at (613)-253-5046.

Train wreck of a film falls off rails early and often My Take MARK HASKINS

Pain and Gain depicts the real life events of the Sun Gym gang as they bungle their way from kidnapping, to murder, to their eventual incarceration. I did a little research, and while the film leaves out some details this is definitely a case of the truth being stranger than fiction. If the actual events are a train wreck then I guess it makes sense that the movie based on those events would be a train wreck too. I was dumbfounded by the whole thing. The sheer absurdity of what these guys did is mindboggling. As a film I found it even more disturbing. I get that an absurd situation can be a source of humour, but there’s nothing funny about what happened to the victims in this story. And the constant attempts to make it funny were just wrong. I said it before and I’ll say it again Michael Bay couldn’t tell a decent sto-

ry if his life depended on it. If this had been a work of fiction it might have worked, but it isn’t. Bay constantly reminds us throughout the film that these events happened. He also goes out of his way to annoy the audience by giving every single character their own film noir voice over. Never has a film convention been more overused. I can see why the cast decided to take on these roles. These are the kinds of characters that can challenge an actor. Truth be told Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony

MOVIE: Pain and Gain STARRING: Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Tony Shalhoub, and Ed Harris DIRECTOR: Michael Bay RATING: 18A EMC Entertainment - You should never judge a movie by its trailer, but of course you inevitably do. After the trailer for Pain and Gain I thought it looked like a train wreck, and after seeing the film I can confirm it’s a colossal train wreck. Daniel Lugo is sick of working every day as a personal trainer for no money and less respect. He wants his piece of the American dream, and he’s got a plan to get it. Daniel, with the help of his good friends Adrian (Anthony Mackie) and Paul (Dwayne Johnson), are going to kidnap Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub), and make him sign over everything he owns. In Daniel’s mind Victor is a scum bag who deserves what he gets. In reality Daniel, Adrian and Paul are steroid abusing morons with a serious disconnect with reality. Victor isn’t a criminal, but that doesn’t stop Daniel from torturing him and taking his fortune. These guys may be morons, but they’re dangerous morons.
