Car love hits early The car bug bites early, and Chase Rose, 7, and his brother Ryder, 9, have it pretty bad as they check out a 1957 Chevy Belair owned by Joe and Donna Montgomery of Wolfe Island, just one of the amazing and beautiful motor vehicles on display at the annual Lions Club Cruise In held in Gananoque on June 2 at the Town Park.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Parks Canada is excited to host 1812 On Tour, a travelling experience that brings to life the stories of a war that helped define Canada as a nation, at Fort Wellington National Historic Site on Saturday and Sunday, June 8 and 9. Get to know some of the heroes of the war, take your photo in front of huge inflatable 1812 numbers, and learn about the most important landscapes, forts and buildings that make up the more than 20 Parks Canada War of 1812 national historic sites in Central and Eastern Canada. The weekend will feature two action packed days of activities that reflect the local importance and impact of the conflict. The fortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bicentennial 1812 troop, the Glengarry Light Infantry will be encamped at the fort, cooking over open fires, and recreating and interpreting the War of 1812 era for visitors of all ages. The familiar green coats of the fortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditional Royal Canadian Rifle Regiment will also be onsite performing musket and rifle demonstrations throughout the

weekend. The 1812 era gunboat, the real focal point of the fortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new visitor centre, links the significance of the river to the action on the ground. As an important cargo transfer point, Fort Wellington played a critical role in defending British supply lines that used the St. Lawrence River to move military wares from England into Lake Ontario. Activities for the whole family start at 10 a.m. and go until 5 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The war of 1812 marks a significant period in Canadian history. At Fort Wellington, visitors will experience first-hand, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich history brought to life,â&#x20AC;? said Kim St. Claire, Superintendent, Parks Canada Georgian Bay and Ontario East Field Unit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bring family members, or friends, and discover experiences that inspire Canadians and international visitors alike.â&#x20AC;?

TISS students contribute to Tall Ships Festival offerings By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Students in David Sheridanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grade 9 Native Studies class have been hard at work the past month. They have been assisting in the building of an authentic Algonquin 12-foot birch bark canoe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; under the watchful eye and guidance of professional artisans Janet and Chuck Commanda. As well they have been making baskets and eight-inch long decorative canoes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is feeling excited to have their work shared on the world stage,â&#x20AC;? noted Sheridan, a long-time Thousand Islands Secondary School teacher.

The Commandas will paddle out, in full Native regalia, in the canoe to the Tall Ships which will be arriving as part of the First Port of Call Tall Ships 1812 Tour and festival, June 14. Each ship captain will be receiving a basket, made by the students. Sheridan is hoping perhaps some of his students may be able to ride with the Commandas, however he is unsure at this point if that will come through. He noted some of his students have native heritage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including Algonquin, Mohawk and Ojibway, and would like to see them take part if able. All of this would not have come

about without a lot of hard work. From the idea to the making of these special items, each step has involved much effort. Dave Paul, director of economic development for Brockville, had approached Sheridan about his class perhaps contributing something for the Tall Ships Festival. Sheridan had tossed the idea around in his mind, and found inspiration during a training session. There, someone suggested the idea of a canoe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sheridan took the idea and ran with it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The opportunity was there and everything kind of fell into place with a little extra energy and faith to push it through,â&#x20AC;? Sheridan explained of the process. Sheridan gives special thanks to Jim Palmer, head of Arts Charter Funding with the school board. He was instrumental in obtaining some of the funding in order to move forward with this project. Janet and Chuck Commanda are professional artisans and Algonquin natives. According to a press release from the Upper Canada District School Board, they â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have presented workshops on the craft at places such as the Smithsonian Institute in Washington.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the tail end of a tradition that has lasted thousands and thousands of years,â&#x20AC;? Sheridan said in the same release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This project will give us time to think and reflect on all the natural resources 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.â&#x20AC;? The project has also had side lessons, of an environmental nature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to recognize birch bark trees and other species are under stress in our current environment,â&#x20AC;? Sheridan commented. The Commandas were down to the wire to get the proper kind of bark for the project. They searched in Algonquin Park, after a tip from the Ministry of Natural Resources directed them there. The trees in that location were dead. It was just days before they were to start working with the TISS students that a friend of theirs from Quebec called, saying he knew of a location where they might be able to find what they were looking for. It was there they found what they needed, just in the nick of time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Doing this is very therapeutic,â&#x20AC;? Chuck explained of the work. Teaching the children a tradition steeped in heritage, as well as the art of patience, the Commandas are enjoying their work with the youth. When the canoe portion of the project is completed, the plan is to carve the UCDSBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CREW program logo on the bow of the boat, while a bear â&#x20AC;&#x201C; representing the Commandasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Algonquin community, will be carved into the canoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stern. Please see next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issue of the St. Lawrence News EMC for more on the upcoming Tall Ships Festival.

Tall Ships Festival has so much in store for June 14 to 16 By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Events - Anticipation is building for the upcoming First Port of Call Tall Ships 1812 Tour in Brockville. The festival, from June 14 to 16, has a long list of events for every member of the family to enjoy. Even the Norwegian Ambassador will be attending, along with a number of people from the community who are from Norway. One of the Tall Ships attending, the Sørlandet - is a 210-foot Class A fully rigged tall ship, built in Norway in 1927. From this, to a Drummer’s Circle, Parade of Sail, spectacular fireworks display, canon fire from the ships, a hot air balloon launch, and much, much more is on the agenda so far. To date, close to 2,000 passports for the event have been sold, Dave Paul, director of economic development for Brockville, explains. More than 500 sail outs have been confirmed for the weekend, and these impressive numbers are all as the result of 330 people coming together to plan for this event. Transportation With the impressive number of passports already sold, there will also be the issue of transportation. On the Friday and Saturday buses will be running every 15 minutes from locations in the north end to the waterfront. From St. Lawrence College and the Brockville Memorial Centre, the complimentary rides will ensure

Henderick’s Celebrates 1st Anniversary in Downtown Gananoque! When shopping for that perfect item, you want a Jeweller you can trust, quality products, value for your money, and service second to none. That’s why so many put their trust in Henderick’s, where they pride themselves on providing each and every customer a positive experience. “Our business is founded on developing long term relationships with customers,” says owner Bill Vanderscheer.

1

Relationships, quality products, and excellent value have made Hendericks a destination for that special purchase. “If you provide customers with a positive experience based upon those three attributes, success and reputation will follow. I can not emphasize that enough” says Bill It seems simple – quality product, excellent service, and excellent value – that has been the stores foundation since opening one year ago, and Bills philosophy since entering the business in 1989. Since graduating from George Brown College as a Goldsmith he has worked with 2 major chain stores, and has been with one of the “premier” independent jewellers between Ottawa and Toronto since 1993. “I have always known I would have a store… the timing was right and I recognized a need” says Bill. Henderick’s is owned by Bill and Angela Vanderscheer, both of whom grew up in Gananoque and reside in Lansdowne with their two children. Henderick’s has a wide selection of men’s, women’s, and children’s jewellery. They have Citizen watches, Orlean watches, gold and silver jewellery, earrings, Persona beads,

engagement and anniversary rings, and a full line of “Keith Jack” celtic jewellery. The store also carries watch batteries, straps and expansion bracelets. “We are a full service store and have everything you would find in the major centres, so there is no need to travel,” says Bill. Hendericks boasts a full compliment of Canadian suppliers. They feature Canadian gold – mined, alloyed and manufactured in Canada, all available with certified Canadian diamonds. As a small store, Bill says “We can compete with the larger chain stores. In many cases we can provide the same or better quality at similar pricing.” Henderick’s will also tailor your ring purchase to your budget.

Local girl raises funds to donate hair to charity By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC News - One local youth has grown her hair for two years, with the goal of cutting it off and donating it to Angel Hair for Kids. After losing both grandfathers to cancer, and knowing other people with the disease, Amber Manns says she wanted to do something “to help others and actually find a cure for cancer.” The St. Joseph Catholic School, Toledo, student wants to raise $2,000. She will be having her hair cut during this year’s Relay for Life event in Brockville, at Row’s Corners Fairgrounds, June 14. Amber is actually raising funds for Angel Hair for Kids, an organization which “provides wigs and hair loss solutions for financially disadvantaged children experiencing medically related hair loss of any kind,” according to its Facebook page. Angel Hair for Kids is a program of A Child’s Voice Foundation. So far, Amber’s school has held a talent night, and she has spoken at various locations, in order to raise funds and awareness. “I have lost two people close to me due to cancer. I know of three other people who have cancer, but I also know of people who have beaten cancer,” Amber noted in one of her speeches. “There is research being done every day and we are getting closer and closer to finding a cure. We are fighting back every day and not giving up.” A donation of $2,000 to the organization will go towards having two wigs made. Amber will be joining her mother

It’s a big celebration.” With files from Doreen Barnes.

EMC News - During the month of June, artifacts from the Brockville Museum will once again be on display at the Brockville Public Library. The anticipated birth and christening of a royal baby this summer provides a timely opportunity to display a few artifacts from the museum’s collection relating to such an event. The christening dress was often regarded as a family heirloom, worn by numerous family members and following generations. The traditional dress was long,

made of sheer soft fabric with lace and embroidered trim. Queen Elizabeth II was christened in a robe of Honiton lace that had been worn by her father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. On display is a christening gown and bonnet worn by members of the Cowan family, founders of the Cowan Dairy and Ice Cream Co. Ltd. 1909-1977. Also on display are portraits by professional Brockville photographers Dunn and Co. (1903-1935) which leave a lasting image of the event.

COMMENTARY Strong Kids campaign on now for YMCA

Photo by LORRAINE PAYETTE

Gananoque Intermediate and Secondary School students ation Centre on King Street East, to help raise funds for held a charity car wash recently at the Lou Jeffries Recre- Champions 4 Kids Foundation.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Local team shows compassion, dedicate win to opposition team DEAR EDITOR: The 2001 Brockville Icehawgz AAA spring team won gold medals at the GTA May Madness Tournament in Toronto on Mother’s Day weekend. This was a huge achievement for these kids and what they did next was something of which, as a parent and team manager, I couldn’t be more proud. Team Harrow with whom we were tied for first place going into Saturday’s games ended up having to drop out of the tournament because of the sudden death of one of their coaches (also a parent). When we were told we wouldn’t be playing them on Saturday the captain of our team spoke up and said “if we can’t play against them let’s play for them!” The final game came and it went into overtime, five minutes 5 on 5 and then 4 on 4 and then 3 on 3. Still there was no winner so the game went into a three-man shootout and it came down to the last shooters for both teams. This is where the Icehawgz pulled out the victory to win the gold medal.

The boys decided right away they wanted to dedicate their gold medals to Team Harrow and made a video message to send to the team and the family of coach Jeff Yungblut who passed away at the tournament on Saturday. The video has been on Youtube for one week and has had over 1,200 views already (on Youtube just search Icehawgz). As team manager, I have received numerous e-mails about the spirit and sportsmanship of this young Icehawgz team from the family, the teammates, Canlan tournament director, the owner of Team Harrow and many from our own team’s family and friends. I am so proud of these boys for winning the gold medal and for dedicating themselves to another team. I am honoured to be a part of the 2001 Icehawgz team. Thanks, Tammy Wilkinson, Manager, Brockville Icehawgz

EMC Editorial – Just yesterday, Wednesday June 5, a silent auction opened in the YMCA lobby, in support of the 2013 Strong Kids Campaign. The silent auction runs until next Wednesday, June 12. A number of events are currently under way and in the works for this annual campaign which, according to the YMCA website, “raises money to enable kids and families who need financial assistance to participate in the much needed YMCA programs to help them realize their full potential.” These range from regular Wednesday Hot Lunches, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. put on by various local organizations in support of the campaign, to the Bold Reflections Art Show and Sale on now at the Brockville Arts Centre gallery. The show and sale features works by Cyndy Robinson and runs until June 28. Coming up, there will be other activities such as a volleyball tournament, a car wash, a Healthy Kids Day (which took place June 2), an art auction, karate participation day, craft sale and more. There are no shortage of opportunities to contribute to the cause. Funds raised during the Strong Kids Campaign will enable local youth to participate in the many programs offered at the Y. It’s all designed to give these children and youth an opportunity to get and stay physically fit, have fun, socialize, gain physical skills and perhaps most importantly – to just be kids, to have fun. For more information about the Strong Kids Campaign, the events taking place, any of the YMCA of Brockville and Area programs and services, please visit their website, at www.brockvilley.com, call 613-342-7961 or visit 345 Park St., Brockville.

Once given a chance, dandelions had a place at the table EMC Lifestyle - “Woman, we have been eatin’ those on this here farm for a hundred years,” Father said to Mother. I could see Mother wasn’t impressed. “They’re weeds, Albert,” she said. “Plain and simple weeds. I never heard of anyone eating weeds!” We were at the breakfast table. And we five children were looking at Mother and Father as if we were watching someone in a tennis match. I didn’t think Father was going to win this one! The subject under discussion was dandelions. They covered what we called a lawn, but was really just our front yard, since we didn’t own a lawn mower, but when the grass got too high, one of the brothers tackled it with a scythe. It was hard to tell what was grass and what was dandelions. On the way to school that morning, I asked my much older and wiser sister Audrey if she ever heard of anyone eating dandelions. She said she had. Once

at her friend Iva’s house. She couldn’t remember what they tasted like. Now, it wasn’t unusual for Father to whip up a German meal. In fact, we all enjoyed what he cooked...all except fried blood pudding which I even had trouble looking at when it came to the table. When he fried sauerkraut, it never tasted at all like the batch Mother would make. Father would rinse it many times, put it in a fry pan with butter and chopped onions, and it wasn’t ready to eat until it had turned a golden brown. His German potato pancakes were

usually made on a Sunday night. The potatoes were shredded, rinsed, squeezed dry, and then mixed with eggs and of course, chopped onions. We kept him busy at the Findlay Oval turning out his pancakes barely giving him time to eat them himself, we loved them so much. Of course, they were well lathered with butter and maple syrup too. And now it was dandelions. Well, I was with Mother on this one! I had no desire to eat weeds that were pulled out of the front yard where goodness knows what animal had trampled all over them. No siree. That Saturday morning Father ordered the boys to meet him in the yard with their jack-knives. He was carrying a milk pail and got down on his knees right in the middle of the yard, and showed the brothers how to dig up a dandelion, right down to, and including the root. It didn’t take long to fill the milk pail.

He hauled the pail over to the cement step at the pump and filled it with water. He sloshed the dandelions around with his arm in the pail up to his elbow, dumped the water out, and repeated the performance. Mother was standing at the kitchen door with her arms folded across her chest, as if defying Father to bring the weeds into the house. Well, that’s exactly what he intended on doing. He laid out a spanking clean tea towel on the bake table, and shook what water he could off the dandelions and laid them out flat, cutting off the long roots. Then he folded the towel over the pile of weeds and patted it with his flattened hand. What amazed me was that all the time this was going on, there wasn’t a word spoken between Mother and Father. It was as if they hadn’t laid eyes on each other in their entire lives. Father took down a big pot from the shelf over the stove and piled in the dan-

delions. He poured in a scant dipper of water, sprinkled in a handful of salt, and slid the pot to the front of the Findlay Oval. Then he went over to his rocking chair, lit his pipe, crossed his legs, and waited. The table had already been set for dinner...we always had dinner at noon hour...supper was what we had at night, and Mother had roast pork and potatoes in the oven. It looked very much like we had a choice...either eat the dandelions as a vegetable, or settle for sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Father was certainly in charge of the big pot, already boiling gently on the stove. Mother was having nothing to do with it. He tested the innards with a fork, and when they were done to his liking, he poured the dandelions into the sieve, pressed them down with the wood spoon, and plopped them into a See MARY page 9

He set the bowl in the middle of the table, and we all looked at it, no one daring to be the first one to dig in. Emerson, the most daring of the lot of us, took his fork, and tested one boiled leaf. I never took my eyes off him. He rolled it around in his mouth, and reached out for the bowl, ladling a heaping pile on his plate. “Just as good as your potato pancakes,” he said.

the rest of us to take a small bite, which led to us piling the dandelions on our plates and even Mother, dared to taste a fork full. It didn’t take long for Mother to admit that the dandelions had a place on our dinner table. She did demand to oversee the washing of every last leaf, however. From that Saturday, like Father’s potato pancakes and fried sauerkraut, his boiled dandelions often found their way to our plates. She did however, draw the line on eating the fried roots. Father said she didn’t know what she was missing. “I’ll take that chance,” Mother replied.

John Ross Matheson honoured with renaming of city street EMC News - The 50 years of Our Flag project has been conceived to raise awareness of, commemorate, and celebrate the birth of Canada’s Maple Leaf Flag. The committee believes that there is a strong rationale to name Brockville as the Official Birthplace of the Canadian Flag as outlined below: John Ross Matheson, MP Leeds County and resident of Brockville Ontario, was asked by Lester B. Pearson in 1961 to discreetly pursue research and investigate the design and creation of a National Flag for Canada. He was the person most responsible for the daily operation of the Parliamentary Flag Committee (Project Manager), he was personally requested to Chair this committee by Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson. Matheson informed the Prime Minister he could do far greater work as the Project Manager than he could as the Chairman of the Committee (Herman Batten was appointed). He spent many hours from 1961 through 1964 on this project working from his North Augusta Rd. home as well as on Parliament Hill. No other individual in this country worked as long or with more determination to bring a National Flag to Canadians. Col. George Stanley was a significant contributor in the design of the Canadian Maple Leaf Flag. However, there were over 2,100 submissions to the Official Flag Committee which had some form of Maple Leaf incorporated in the design. The Maple Leaf Flag had been suggested by Edward M. Chadwick in 1896 as well as Sir Eugene Fiset in 1918. The official colours, red and white, were given to Canada in 1921 by King George V. There were 15 members on the Parliamentary Flag Committee (Col. George Stanley was not part of this committee). Matheson was responsible for getting the Stanley design onto the final selection board in the Flag Committee Room. The Stanley design was based upon a verbal discussion between Matheson and Col. Stanley at RMC in Kingston. The final design of the Canadian Maple Leaf Flag has been documented in

Correction EMC Editorial – A name appeared wrong in the May 23 edition of the St. Lawrence News EMC. The caption should have read John Ross Matheson. The St. Lawrence News EMC apologizes for this error.

detailed government records as having the Stanley suggestion as the basis, with Jacques Saint-Cyr, Dr. Gunter Wyszcki and George Bist contributing to the stylized maple leaf, the official colours and the proportional sizing to adhere to the heraldic and historical values required to make our Canadian Maple Leaf Flag representative of Canadian heritage. There was not one person who created the Canadian Maple Leaf Flag, there were many contributors involved. Matheson is often referred to as “The Father of Our Flag” not because he takes credit for the design or creation of the flag but because of his dedication and determination to bring it to fruition. His tireless efforts culminated in the Official Flag Committee members voting unanimously 14-0 to accept the Canadian Maple Leaf Flag design on Oct. 22, 1964. It was followed up by a dedicated lobby campaign during the House of Commons filibuster, which saw several Members of Parliament from different political parties lend support to this Flag Committee recommendation. This support came to the forefront in a historic vote on Dec. 15, 1964 at 2 a.m. when Parliament voted 168-73 to adopt the Canadian Maple Leaf as Canada’s very own flag. This was then sent to the Senate of Canada and adopted as law on Dec. 17, 1964 and received Royal Proclamation on January 28, 1965. The first Canadian Maple Leaf Flag was raised on Parliament Hill on Feb. 15 1965.All of this work was done in the challenging working atmosphere of an all-party committee and a minority government. It is a remarkable achievement to say the very least. The Great Flag Debate was over. Matheson truly believes the flag brought a feeling of unity to Canada in 1965 which has continued to this day. The “Father of Our Flag” was our Member of Parliament for Leeds County, and Citizen of Brockville, Ontario during every aspect of the Official Flag Committee work as well as Parliament’s Great Flag Debate. In Matheson’s own words “many hours were spent in the study of my family home on North Augusta Rd. working on the Flag project”. The people of Brockville are very proud of Matheson’s accomplishments and want to recognize his legacy. On May 13, Matheson had a Brockville Street renamed after him, in his honour. The sign bearing the name, “John Ross Matheson Way” is located in front of the Court House in Brockville. With files from the 50 Years of Our Flag committee.

One from Ford Canada for $2,840, the other from the local dealership in the amount of $500. Accepting the cheque are (from second from left), principal J.P. Elliott, Lori Donovan, vice-principal and Patty Jansen, parent council chair. The funds were donated to the school council - which will result in every dollar going back to the kids in some way. Ford Canada offered the local dealership an opportunity to partner with a local school for a Drive 4Ur School event. Essentially it is a day-long fundraiser for test drives. The fundraiser was held locally April 13, a rather poor day for weather. For every one test drive, Ford committed to donating $20 to St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, up to $6,000. That day 143 test drives took place. Also, Chiasson Ford bought a barbecue, used it throughout the day to hold a fundraising barbecue event, and then raffled it off at 4 p.m. A fundraising bake sale was also featured. The local dealershipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts, in that one day, brought in $500, to add to the Ford Canada pledge.

New CEO takes the helm at Brockville General Hospital the Brockville hospital is striving for. “We need to become a highperformance organization,” he says. Weeks began his tenure as president and CEO on May 27, and feels good about taking

By CONAN de VRIES

EMC News - After seven months without a full-time president and CEO, the Brockville General Hospital (BGH) has finally settled on the ideal candidate. Tony Weeks was introduced last week as the hospital’s new chief, and he’s looking forward to being at the helm of an organization with so much potential. “I think the BGH has done a great job in many areas,” he says. There are, nevertheless, areas in which Weeks would like to see the hospital improve. “We make mistakes like any other organization. What’s important is that we learn from those errors.” There is a national trend, he says, to invest more in the patient experience and to shorten wait times for medical or diagnostic procedures. To achieve these ends it is necessary to make the most of the resources that already exist. “There is no new money,” he says. “If we want to be innovative, we need to find ways to free up the dollars that we have.” Weeks also wants to focus more on the metrics of perfor-

CEO and president was filled by vice-president of clinical services Heather Quesnelle, who kept the hospital running smoothly since October. “I want to thank Heather for her hard work during a lengthy interim period,” says Weeks.

One way in which he intends to achieve these ambitious goals is by talking to the front-line

staff, the people at the bedside, as well as family and patients themselves. In this way, Weeks hopes BGH can make the most out of the considerable human and physical resources it has. Having worked in hospital administration throughout the country, including at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Toronto and the KGH in Kingston, Weeks knows what

Team Harrow with whom the team was tied for first place going into Saturday’s games, had to drop out as their coach died suddenly. The team decided if they couldn’t play against them they would play for them. The final game came and Icehawgz pulled out the victory to win gold. The boys decided right away they wanted to dedicate their gold medals to Team Harrow and made a video message to send to the team and the family of coach Jeff Yungblut who had passed away. The video

First-time golf tournament June 26 to benefit sports for youth “The proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards creating sport programs for the children in Prescott and Brockville. If we have the funds available, we might expand. Right now we have a couple of programs at schools and programs at night, leagues, where anyone can play.” The day of the event involves golfing, a buffet meal and prizes for hole in one, closest to the pin, long drive, a putting contest and auction. Podium will also have a massage therapist at one of the holes. As well some of the children in the Elite Sports program will be on hand to meet and greet. “We will have a live auction of donated items like green fees from multiple golf courses and gift certificates,” stated VanAsseldonk, “After dinner we will have a dessert auction. It’s an interesting idea and it’s always nice to end the night with a nice dessert.” So the people golfing or just com-

EMC News - Podium Sport Therapy Clinic has partnered with Elite Sports for the first ever ‘Swinging for Sport’ Golf Tournament taking place on Wednesday, June 26 at the Brockville Country Club. The cost is $100 for Brockville Country Club members, with non-members paying $125. Registration is 11:30 to 12:30 p.m. with a 1 p.m. shotgun start. Podium’s Shannon Morrison and Simon VanAsseldonk are co-chairs of this fundraiser. “I actually approached Podium with the opportunity to get involved with sports programs for youth that we are running and they came up with the idea for the golf tournament,” said owner, Elite Sports VanAsseldonk. “They wanted to get more involved and thought the golf tournament was a good idea.” VanAsseldonk started to run sports program for children in the winter timeframe, indoor soccer and basketball, because there were no leagues. The demand has grown and the association with Podium started. “Typically golfers sign up as a foursome, but it is not necessary,” indicated VanAsseldonk.

ing to the dinner (cost $30) are asked to bring a dessert for the auction. “We have had people who are not golfers say that they want to bring a dessert for the auction,” said VanAsseldonk. Dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. The after-school programs are Canadian Tire Jump Start, indoor soccer league, indoor floor hockey leagues and indoor basketball league as well as some outdoor sports this summer. To find out more about the sport programs, call Elite at 613-213-0096. “We have children from Lyn, Mallorytown as well as Prescott come to Brockville,” added VanAsseldonk. “For anyone who sponsors a child, it is about $50 for a couple of months. It’s learning how to play with a team, it’s not competitive.” To sign up to play golf, call 613-498-0036 to register. Photo by DOREEN BARNES

Tall Ship SS Sørlandet to visit Brockville during Tall Ships 1812 Tour EMC Events – The majestic tall ship Sørlandet, the world’s largest operating fully rigged tall ship will be sailing into Brockville this summer to take part in Brockville’s Tall Ships 1812 Tour, June 14 to 16. With her 100 foot tall masts, and her 22 sails, the Sørlandet will be easy to spot amongst the tall ship fleet. She’s the largest tall ship sailing in this year’s Great Lakes Tall Ships Challenge. The Sørlandet will be dropping the gangplank and inviting visitors aboard for deck tours each day of the festival. All hands will be on deck to welcome visitors and give them a glimpse into a seafaring life steeped in tradition. Landlubbers and sailors alike will find it hard to resist the romance of tall ship sailing once they step aboard the Sørlandet. The iconic Sørlandet is a 210 foot Class A fully rigged tall ship, built in Norway in 1927 as a sail training ship for the merchant marine. She now sails the world’s oceans as home to Class Afloat, a private Canadian school offering fully

accredited senior high school and university programs. Just weeks before joining this year’s Tall Ship Challenge she will have completed nine months of ocean sailing that started in Istanbul, Turkey and included three transAtlantic crossings with 22 ports of call including Cape Town, South Africa. The voyage will end with graduation ceremonies in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. “I am delighted to bring the Sørlandet to Brockville this summer. The golden age of tall ship sailing comes alive aboard Sørlandet. There’s an immediate sense of romantic adventure on the high seas that affects even the most experienced sailor,” says Class Afloat president David Jones, the man responsible for bringing Sørlandet to the Great Lakes this summer. The Sørlandet’s professional crew won’t be the only ones aboard the ship when she sails into port. Anyone looking for a unique experience this summer can join Sørlandet at each port of call for a week of tall ship sail training.

No experience is required. Guest sailors will take part in as much sailing life as they wish with options ranging from going aloft in the rig, to taking the helm, cooking in the galley to relaxing on deck. As guest crew, they will have crew passes allowing them an insider’s view of any Tall Ships Festival including entry to special events for tall ship fleet crew. “If you’ve ever dreamed of tall ship sailing – this is the perfect summer experience,” says Jones. “Whether it’s Lake Superior’s spectacular scenery, a starry night on Lake Huron, a tall ship race or a fleet Parade of Sail into some of North America’s great cities – the memories of this summer are guaranteed to last a lifetime.” Special two-week youth leadership programs, centred around the unique experience of crewing a tall ship, have also been developed for young people age 14-21 looking for the ultimate summer adventure. For more information about the Tall Ships Summer program go to www.sailtail.com.

Shelter walk was inspiring By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle - While the air was brisk, the level of support for the Ontario SPCA Leeds and Grenville Branch was warm May 25. The Friends for Life Walk-athon took place that day in Hardy Park and raised $16,315, the most raised during this annual event. The day included a walk, a Fur Fashion Show, a barbecue and a visit from the Brockville Police Service’s new canine officer. As well door prizes were drawn for and those who raised various levels of pledges - including St. Lawrence News EMC’s own

MARLA DOWDALL Marla’s Moments Anne Sawyer, for raising more than $500 for the cause. The crowd of people who brought along their canine companions was large, even a few ferrets showed up. My husband Shawn, and I participated with one of our dogs, Holly. She’s a nine month-old Bernadoodle, who is the most laid back pup we have ever come across. We thoroughly enjoyed the day; it is different when one

is able to actually take part in something, versus covering it for the paper. It was nice to talk to participants, to walk the walk, as well as to be able to donate to a great cause. And, if we would have been able to attend the walk in Gananoque for the Gananoque and District Humane Society, another great cause, we would have as well. Seeing shelter staff and volunteers, seeing community members out in support, and furry friends - which ultimately is what the day is all about, was an amazing experience. We already plan on taking part in next year’s event.

CMHC releases first quarter results: Mortgage insurance portfolio strong

EMC Business - Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) has released its results for the first quarter of 2013. At the end of the first quarter of 2013, CMHC’s total insurance-in-force was $562.6 billion; $3.5 billion lower than the insurance-in-force at year-end 2012. CMHC expects mortgage repayments to continue in the range of approximately $60 to $65 billion per year. These repayments off-set future increases to CMHC‘s insurance-in-force, resulting from new business being written. CMHC’s mortgage insurance portfo-

lio is strong with an overall arrears rate at March 31, 2013 of 0.35 per cent, unchanged from year-end 2012. The average credit score in CMHC’s high-ratio insured homeowner portfolio is 726. The high average credit score demonstrates a strong ability among homebuyers with CMHC-insured mortgages to manage their debts. The average amortization period at the time of mortgage approval for all CMHCinsured homeowner and multi-unit residential loans has remained stable at 25 years. Losses on claims were $21 million lower in Q1 2013 compared to the same quarter in 2012.

The lower losses are the result of declining claim volumes (14 per cent lower than those received in Q1 2012). For the three months ended March 31, 2013, CMHC’s net income (after taxes) was $378 million, a decrease of 15 per cent ($69 million) when compared to the same period in 2012. Over the last decade, CMHC has contributed more than $17 billion towards improving the federal government’s fiscal position through both its income taxes and net income. Of the $17 billion, CMHC’s insurance business has contributed more than $15 billion.

Brockville couple answers prayer for Canadian singer By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Little did Canadian singer Justin Hines know that the answer to his prayer was in the works and it would be delivered by retired pastor Stewart and his wife Lily Jean Froese. Hines was looking to rent a motorhome so he could take his tour on the road. In the fall of 2012, a Class â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 29 foot long motorhome with all the conveniences was given to Hines, a gift from Stewart and Lily Jean, which he could use for the North America â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Vehicle of Changeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tour. As ordinary people who have worked hard all their lives, they consider themselves truly blessed, and just wanted to pay it forward without any expectations on their part. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very ordinary,â&#x20AC;? said Lily Jean. As a thank you and to bring his music East, Justin Hines with Ash & Bloom will perform a free concert on Saturday, June 22 at Wall Street United Church, 5 Photo by DOREEN BARNES Wall St., Brockville. A free will offering will be taken Come and join retired pastor Stewart Froese and his wife Lily Jean at the upcoming free concert of Justin which goes to the Wall Street Mission. Hines with Ash and Bloom on Saturday, June 22, Wall Street United Church, Brockville. This couple gave a As the story unfolded, a few years very special gift to Hines, so come and enjoy this special music.

ago, Stewart and Lily Jean bought a motorhome, modified it for Lily Jean, as she has psoriatic arthritis and osteoarthritis with limited maneuverability, to use for travelling. This idea seemed realistic at the time as it would be easier than Lily Jean trying to stay in hotel/motels. Between treatments and operations, Lily Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical condition improved considerably, while Stewartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s declined with the onset of prostate cancer. Each day the camper sat and those days became weeks then months and years, so Stewart suggested that they do something with the camper. Perhaps another couple would enjoy having it. The Froeses had never used the camper. Trying to sell the camper with all its alterations proved difficult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were things on it that people didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need,â&#x20AC;? said Stewart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The passenger seat had the ability to turn, the bathroom doorway was enlarged and a lift was installed.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were a lot of modifications, some investment and I was getting See PRAYERS page 24

world. How many times, standing in a grocery line, have you noticed a guy who realizes heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dollar or two short? Why not pay it forward?â&#x20AC;? Stewart said that rather than have the person pay you back, ask that person to do the same for someone else. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should not be that big of a deal,â&#x20AC;? told Lily Jean of them gifting the camper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should be the sort of thing that people do all the time,â&#x20AC;? added Stewart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should come natural.â&#x20AC;? Finally the day came when Justin, Savanna, Aubrey Winfield and a camera crew arrived to take possession of the motorhome. Thankfully Hines was able to enter into the motorhome with the sizing adjustments made to the entrance. Once inside, Hines moved around, on his own, to his heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire. Without making Hines wait any longer, both Lily Jean and Stewart told him that they were giving the recreational vehicle to him. After a momentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silence, Hines asked if what they had said was a joke? The Froeses assured him that it was not a joke and that the motorhome was his to drive away to use on his cross-country tours. To view this moment: http://m. y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v = Wu k C 1 zVjJM&feature=relmfu. Both Stewart and Lily Jean are looking forward to seeing Justin and Savanna at the concert being held on Saturday, June 22, along with hearing his latest CD, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How We Flyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope a lot of people will come,â&#x20AC;? said Lily Jean. Stewart had one parting thought

R0012066300_0502

better,â&#x20AC;? indicated Lily Jean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We said we would sell it (motorhome) but no one wanted it. So we both had the idea, why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we give it to someone as there must be a child, family or somebody that can really, really use this thing. With all the work that Stewart had put into it, this would justify all the work and money, if it would go to somebody that needs it.â&#x20AC;? So rather than just sell it, they decided to give it away to some deserving person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I contacted the March of Dimes in the spring,â&#x20AC;? said Lily Jean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought we would call somebody who might know of an individual that could use it.â&#x20AC;? The March of Dimes suggested that perhaps Justin Hines could use it for his tours. Hines, born in Newmarket has a rare genetic joint condition, Larsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s syndrome and needs to use a wheelchair. In fact Hines founded the Justin Hines Foundation which is a charitable foundation for people with disabilities. All these year, Hines has ridden to the performances in a van. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He does a lot of his concerts for free, to give back to the communities and what Hines is doing (travelling) with the van is typical of him,â&#x20AC;? told Stewart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who he was; not a clue.â&#x20AC;? According to the Froeses, Hinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; manager Aubrey Winfield, Orange Lounge Recordings, was in the process of thinking about renting a recreational vehicle for Hines to go on tour. So, the Froeses contacted Winfield, a conversation took place and there was interest.

Through photos and the description of the motorhome, it was ascertained with modifications to the width of the door entry, this would be a perfect fit for travelling on the road, on tour. Unbeknownst to Hines, Winfield and the Froeses talked about this generous gift and Winfield asked if it could be kept a surprise till Hines actually saw the motorhome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the way that they do fundraising Aubrey said he would like to make this a real surprise for Justin,â&#x20AC;? indicated Lily Jean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So Justin and his wife, Savanna didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;? Before Hines arrived to take the motorhome, some last minute adjustments and installations needed to be made. With the help of the ecumenical work team from Wall Street United Church, the retired men widened the entry into the motorhome, laid carpet and gave the motorhome one last going over. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They made it beautiful, as well as functional,â&#x20AC;? said Lily Jean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who all was involved, but they donated their time and talent. A weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of custom work by these gentlemen. There were little added touches, like taking a corner off something which makes a big difference if you are negotiating a wheelchair. The men were so interested because of the fact that Justin has prayed for something like this.â&#x20AC;? When asked about giving this expensive gift away, Stewart referred to Churchill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important in life to pay it forward,â&#x20AC;? said Stewart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winston Churchill had a great saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we giveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and if we all did that there would be no problems in this

which pretty well summed up the whole situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You try to stay close enough to the spirit that you know when you are suppose to do something,â&#x20AC;? said Stewart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Something as unique as this, it had to go to the right person and so you listen and once you have made the connection,

in our case, (Justin Hines), we knew this was the right thing to do. We built it for him.â&#x20AC;? For additional information, call Wall Street United Church at 613-342-5401, extension 21 or www.wallstreetchurch. com.

Local entertainer brings new group to Tall Ships Festival

Submitted photo

Nutty bunch The Mixed Nuts will be making their debut performance on Friday evening June 14 at the Tall Ships Festival. They will be performing to more than 200 people at the “sold out” dinner cruise on the ship “The Empire Sandy.”

EMC Entertainment - Four exciting and entertaining shows have been lined up by the Joshua Bates Performing Arts Committee in Athens for their 2013-2014 season. First up on Thursday, Sept. 13 is the youngest ever CCMA Rising Star nominee, country singer and entertainer, Brett Kissel. It only takes a moment to realize that Kissel is an honest-to-goodness musician. Many first-time fans do not know that Kissel is also a fifth generation honest-togoodness rancher from Flat Lake Alberta. When you listen to Kissel sing about faith and tradition, about hard work, tough times and tough people, you’re not just hearing songs about the country, you’re hearing songs from the country. In his third visit to JBC, we promise that he will not disappoint his listeners. The Canadian Country Christmas Tour stops in Athens on Thursday, Nov. 21. This tour is led by Sean Hogan who has been performing on the country music scene since 1996, and has won the CCMA Independent Male Artist, CCMA Roots Artist, CMA Humanitarian of the Year. In the 10th year of the show, artists vary from year to year and province to province. Audiences are treated to a concert that showcases a wealth of talent singing both country and Christmas songs. On Saturday, March 8, 2014, world renowned artist, John McDermott and his guitarist, Jason Fowler, grace the stage. This excellent light tenor has performed in Canada, Australia,

New Zealand, and the United States. Three of McDermott’s 25 plus albums have gone platinum, one double and one triple platinum. Included in his many milestones is receiving the US Bob Hope Award for veterans’ causes. Joining his on stage is Fowler, collaborator on his latest album, “This Old Home”. The last show of the season on Friday, April 24, 2014 headlines Nova Scotia multiple award winning singersongwriter, Dave Gooding. Gooding’s music includes flavours of Irish, Scottish, French Acadian, folk and country that fill your senses and touch your soul. He has 10 critically acclaimed CDs including a tribute to John Allan Cameron. His 2012 release is entitled “No More Pennies”. Joining him on stage is friend and fellow Maritime musician, Allie Bennett. The Joshua Bates Centre is located on the second floor of the Athens Municipal building and has an old-fashioned opera house atmosphere in its theatre. Elevator access is available. All shows start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $80 (HST included) for all four shows and $25 (HST included) for single shows and are available from Athens Municipal Office, during office hours, 613-924-2044, J.B. Kelly Insurance, Brockville, 613-345-3023, Dave, Mallorytown, 613-923-5713 or Debbie 613-924-2056.

EMC Lifestyle - Sweet, smart, and affectionate. Arthur was one of the six cats that were surrendered to the shelter in May due to their owners no longer being able to look after them. On first meeting Arthur you assume that his timid posture is a reflection of his disinterest in people, but this couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be further from the truth. He will soak up attention like a sponge, grateful for the reassurance of a kind touch. He will bloom when he is given a chance to once again be in a home. He came from a kind home and he knows there is more to life than what the shelter offers. His date of birth is approximately April 2011. Arthur is neutered, micro-chipped and all his shots are up to date, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready and willing to go. To see Arthur please visit the Gananoque & District Humane Society at 85 Hwy. 32 north of the 401 and Gananoque. Hours are Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to noon.

Heist film keeps you guessing right to the end MOVIE: Now You See Me STARRING: Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Melanie Laurent, Michael Cain and Morgan Freeman DIRECTOR: Louis Leterrier RATING: PG EMC Entertainment - This summer is filled with massive blockbusters that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m dying to see, but out of all of those big budget films Now You See Me was the one that had me the most curious. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not often something original comes along. Michael Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher), Merritt Osbourne (Woody Harrelson) and Jack Wilder (Dave Franco) have two things in common. The first thing is theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all very talented magicians with their own specialty. The second

thing is theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been brought together when each gets a mysterious invitation. One year after that fateful meeting all four are in Las Vegas headlining a huge show as The Four Horsemen. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a magic show like no other. During this magic show they rob a bank in Paris. After the robbery FBI agent Dylan Hobbs (Mark Ruffalo) and Interpol agent Alma Vargas (Melanie Laurent) are forced to work together to figure out how The Four Horsemen did it. Of course thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the wrong question. How they did it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nearly as important as why they did it. Paris is only the beginning. The Four Horsemen are working on something big. Something really big, and just when you think you know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

happening you realize you have no idea. Heist films are tricky. A good heist film is a lot like a good magic trick. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about misdirection and distraction until the big reveal at the end. To pull it off all the pieces have to fit together perfectly. Now You See Me is seamless. Every time you think you understand whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening you realize it is all just a distraction to get you looking the wrong way. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an

intricately made film that keeps you guessing until your jaw drops at the end. Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, and Dave Franco make a great team. To be a movie stage magician is easy because you can stop the cameras and call in the special effects people. It makes selling it to the audience much more difficult, but these guys are so slick they make it look easy. My only issue is I wanted

more scenes with these characters, but the film has to move quickly to keep the audience off balance, or it just wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. Morgan Freeman and Michael Cain are of course brilliant. And Melanie Laurent is stunning. But Mark Ruffalo is the one to watch. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the glue that holds the whole film together, and his performance is flawless. Louis Leterrier has created a truly clever film. The whole time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to follow what The Four Horsemen are doing you forget that Leterrier is doing the same thing to the audience. He uses misdirection and distraction like a master magician until he blows you away with his big reveal at the end. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fantastic. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

EMC Events - What period of time was more exciting, elaborate and dangerous than The Roaring 20â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s? Gangsters, rum runners, bootleggers, burlesque shows, speakeasies, and dance crazes prevailed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flappersâ&#x20AC;? provoked people with their brief skirts, bobbed hair, cavalier use of makeup and the smoking of cigarettes. It was the age of jazz and sometimes referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Age of Wonderful Nonsense.â&#x20AC;? It was a time of glamour and prosperity for many. In 1919 American prohibitionists were successful in getting a law passed to prohibit the transport and sale of intoxicating liquor. Gangsters became wealthy from bootlegging, and rum runners in Canada saw an opportunity to survive the results of post-war hard times. Harsh economic times, and a history of boat-building and river life in the maze of the Thousand Islands, provided a setting in Rockport in which ordinary river folk were lured to becoming daring â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rum runnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by night. The inventiveness and adventures of

the smugglers has become lore woven into our local culture and Rockport is going to celebrate that culture. This coming summer, Aug. 16, 17 and 18, put on your flapper dress or gangster suit and come to Rockport to experience Rockport life in the 1920â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Activities for the weekend include: a 1920â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fashion show on the dock, a speakeasy on Cornwallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Point, a street dance with a seven piece band dressed in period clothes, a rum runnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; challenge, an antique boat show, a Hal McCarney 5 km race and a one km Moose McCarney race for children, an antique car show, an old fashioned family picnic and much, much more. Watch for regular â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prohibition Dayâ&#x20AC;? articles (Under the Flapperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fringe) in your local newspaper and online - articles written to inform and spike your interest and curiosity about life in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roaring 20â&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;?.

As May comes to a close, 1,700 children in the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville will be opening envelopes with the latest Fun With Books, titled, “What Is it?”. Founder Bernie Boesveld (left) helped by author Jancy Watkins (right) and others packed all the envelopes for volunteers to deliver. Watkins was inspired to write this story about children, because her own two girls, Dana and Rylee, now older, so enjoyed receiving these books and listening to the stories while looking at the illustrations. This is Watkins’ first published book.

Leeds and the Thousand Islands is taking steps to show it is open for business EMC Business – Council of the Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands is taking its strategic mission to heart as it continues to update its policies and programs to ensure they show that our community is open for business. At the May 13 regular meeting of council, the Township approved updates to its Building By-law and delegated authority to the Chief Building Official to enter into conditional building permit agreements on behalf of council. “Waiting for a conditional building permit agreement to be authorized by council can take anywhere from two to four weeks,” stated Elaine Mallory, Acting Director of Planning and Development. “This will enable the Chief Building Official to issue conditional building permits without that delay.” Conditional building permits can be issued when all the requirements of the Building Code have not yet been met in order to prevent unreasonable delays in construction provided there is an agreement with the municipality and compliance with certain sections of the Planning Act. They are often helpful to allow the beginning of construction as final details are being incorporated into the site plan approval process.

“I am pleased that we were able to take this step to simplify and expedite an approval process,” stated Mayor Frank Kinsella. “Council looks forward to future changes and recommendations that staff bring forward to allow us to improve the system without sacrificing policy and procedure.” With any new major construction (residential, commercial, industrial, institutional) within the Township, there will be at least 10 inspections. Inspections are conducted for the owner’s benefit and safety, ensuring that the home or other structure is built according to quality and safety standards under the Building Code. In addition to the Building By-law, the Township has updated and approved a new Swimming Pool By-Law. The new By-Law is clearer and more concise, providing residents with a better understanding of what the requirements are. Other upcoming initiatives on the township’s agenda include development of a customer service policy, an Open for Business promise for the Planning and Development Department, review of planning policy with the goal of reducing unnecessary planning approvals and implementing an updated website.

New Principal Wall unveiled at Rideau DHS EMC News – Hardly a week goes by when somebody isn’t asking Sharon Halladay about a former principal at Rideau District High School (RDHS). People have fond memories of past leaders such as Fred Fleming from the late 1960s or George Gratton, the longest-serving principal at RDHS known in the community as the “tough but fair one.” The questions got the current principal of RDHS reflecting on the fact there was no perma-

nent memorial at the school for its leaders, even though pictures of star alumni and past student council presidents adorn the main hallway. Last week an unveiling of “The Principals of Rideau” recognition wall, appropriately located in the main hallway beside the school office, took place. The new “principal wall” honours the careers of all the leaders at Rideau from Colin McLeod, who served as the first school principal from 1960 – 1964 to and Halladay herself.

Fond memories recalled by alumni during BCI 125th anniversary celebration EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Brockville was awash in Red Ram pride over the weekend as 800 alumni visited Brockville Collegiate Institute (BCI) to celebrate its 125th anniversary. The culmination of nearly two years of work by a group of dedicated volunteers, the weekend event saw an alumni barbecue, a pub night social, rooms decorated with memorabilia from eras such as the 1950s and the 1980s, as well as special events such as the Red Ram Rendezvous, an evening that offered entertainment by a band, games, specialty foods and much more.

Event co-chairman Cheryl Donovan said she was delighted with the turnout as people from as far away as the Maldives Islands arrived to celebrate 125 years of academic, artistic and athletic excellence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had so many people come up to me and say it was a great idea and it was long overdue,â&#x20AC;? said Donovan, following an opening ceremony which featured a performance by graduate and tenor Chris Coyea, and speeches by Mayor David Henderson, Chair Greg Pietersma, Trustee Jeff McMillan and Director David K. Thomas. She said alumni were thrilled to

reconnect with friends, teachers and principals whom they had not seen for years, and to reflect on the glory days of high school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m finding it hard not to cry,â&#x20AC;? said Donovan. Graduates such as Ian Wagg of Ottawa, and friend Mark Janson of Middleton, came for one simple reason. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just had a great time here,â&#x20AC;? said Wagg, 32, who graduated in 2000. Wagg recalled with fondness how the two awoke at the crack of dawn to attend early morning practices for the BCI stage band under the guidance of

retired music teacher Judy Quick. The 7 a.m. practices meant getting out of bed before 6 a.m. to arrive on time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you know, you always left there at 8 a.m. to go to class feeling great,â&#x20AC;? said Wagg, now a doctor in Ottawa. Janson, 33, laughed about how things had changed at the school after looking at a poster on the wall warning students against texting and driving. Few students during his time at the school would have had cell phones at all. Now students within the Board are encouraged to use them in class. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my time the only person in the city who had a cell phone or a pager was

a drug dealer,â&#x20AC;? he said with a laugh. Other graduates talked of how a BCI education laid the groundwork for success in life. Donald Nute, 62, of Big Bear, California â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in San Bernardino County â&#x20AC;&#x201C; said the education he received at BCI provided a gateway to acceptance into the University of Toronto â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where he met his wife. He later worked for the Superintendent of Education for San Bernardino County, and is now planning to retire in the Brockville area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This school values excellence and is a doorway to opportunity,â&#x20AC;? said Nute.

Frontenac Arch Biosphere takes big steps forward

Photos by DOREEN BARNES

Frontenac Arch Biosphere executive director Don Ross stands beside the giant puzzle explaining the four pillars of sustainability and the need for the community to become involved in the various programs that FAB has or will have. The five-year FAB plan was announced with the potential for FAB Sustainable Business and FAB Eco-Offsets. As well the new Eastern Ontario’s Frontenac Arch Biosphere 2013 Guide with emphasis on Arts, Food, Heritage and Experiences plus information on cycling, paddling and hiking routes was revealed. In addition there’s a list of events with dates in the publication. With the launch of a new FAB Experiences, www.fabexperiences.ca visitors can match their individual interests to what is available in the region.

“The game plan for today is to show you a little of what goes into the puzzle to make up the programs of the Biosphere,” said Ross. “Over the last 10 years a lot of these programs have come together with discussions around fireplaces with a glass of wine or at the kitchen table and all of these programs have come out of the community.” The five year plan was presented to the public via a huge puzzle with an individual taking a puzzle piece to explain the program, as well as introduce new ones. The key programs are FAB Arts, FAB Local Flavours, FAB Trails, FAB Experiences, FAB Conservation, FAB Education Network, FAB Nature Camp and FAB Sustainable Tourism. Those emerging programs are FAB Heritage and FAB Woods. Potential programs include FAB Sustainable Business and FAB Eco-Offsets. All these programs help people to connect, create networks, promote events, communicate stories and values, as well as partner. As the last puzzle piece was presented, Ross explained that it was now all about the community and the sustainability of the programs. “We would like all of you to be involved in one way or another,” said Ross. To contact the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Network call 613-659-4824, email info@ fabn.ca or visit the website at www.fabr.ca and in June visit www.fabexperiences.ca to check the various regional packaged experiences that are available.

By DOREEN BARNES EMC News – On Saturday, May 18, Frontenac Arch Biosphere (FAB) launched its latest Eastern Ontario Frontenac Arch Biosphere 2013 Guide of Arts, Foods, Heritage and Experiences at the newly renovated Town Hall in Delta. FAB is one of 16 biosphere reserves located in Canada and was designated by UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere Programme. “Right now this organization is 10 years and six months old,” said FAB’s executive director Don Ross, “and we are really happy to introduce a few things today. This organization (non-profit) is about building a sustainable community.” The four pillars of sustainability are nature, livelihood, wellbeing and culture. Ross indicated that every 10 years, an application has to be sent to UNESCO and in 2007 because the Biosphere Reserve had doubled, a submission was sent. “So we have until 2017 which is when our five-year business plan expires, to reapply again,” stated Ross. “We have to fulfill all the promises made to the community and go through an international review.” In FAB’s Going Forward, 2013 – 2017, in the five year plan, it was noted that the Biosphere Network’s programs have expanded considerably and have matured in approach. In this next decade, it is intended to further the work within the community by expanding programs to cover and include all sectors.

Making addiction services available to our communities is as important as providing mental health and medical care.

If you live or work in Lanark, Leeds-Grenville and would like to contribute your time, expertise, or life experience to our work, please contact Helen Latimer-Hanah, Administrative Secretary, by e-mail at helen@tricas.on.ca or by phone at 613-283-7723 Ext 311.

Becoming a true player requires a game plan By J.R. RYAN JR’s Golf Tip of the Week

EMC Sports – Become a player what exactly does that mean to the average golfer out there? Is it the ability to break 100, 90, 80, 70 or even breaking par? To become a ‘Player’ you have to have the ability to consistently shoot 75 or lower. Be a tournament winner or contender in ‘A’ flight stroke play golf tournaments. So if you want to become a ‘Player’ in the true sense of the word, get off the couch, you’ve got some work to do here. What is a ‘Player’ and what separates them from other golfers out there? First of all you will have to evaluate your own game and that is done by charting it. How many fairways and greens do I hit? How many putts do I have per round and putts per greens Submitted photo hit. Your short game, how many up To achieve ‘Player’ status, it will reand downs do I get? To become a ‘Player’ you’ll have to quire you to do some work off both be an above average driver of the ball, the golf course and the driving you will need to have a half decent ap- range. Some of your most producproach shot game. tive practice can be done at home But to get yourself to that next level where there is no emphasis on the the quickest, become a strong player results of where your ball is going. from 120 yards and in. You’ll also Unfortunately those days are long need to really work your short game gone and so are those big stroke play (60 yards and in). Fall in love with your wedges and events. So with that being said, if you still your putter and you will find yourself getting closer to that elusive ‘Player’ want to earn ‘Player’ status, you will still need to shoot 75 or lower on a constatus. I remember a point in time in this sistent basis. I have been fortunate enough to area that to be recognized as a ‘Player’ you were an ‘A’ flight tournament win- have had worked with the best and most consistent tournament winners in ner or a contender. And to win or contend in these ‘A’ this area over the years. I always stressed to my students to fight stroke play events, you needed to shoot 75 or better. Trust me that’s good follow the five ‘C’s’, components, consistency, confidence, compete and then golf especially in tournament golf. When I was a member at the Brock- become a champion. First you work on all the compoville Country Club, we had a number of self-proclaimed ‘Players’ that put nents of the game including driving, up those low numbers throughout the approach shots, short game, putting, week. But once they put the peg in the course management etc. Once you work on all those comground on the weekend for a tournament, they were nowhere to be found ponents, you strive to do each of them consistently. When that happens you on any leaderboard.

become more confident. Confidence will make you want to compete, whether it’s in tournaments or amongst your buddies or your weekend foursome. Obviously when you are in compete mode you want to win tournaments, or be the low shooter in your group. That’s reaching the ultimate pinnacle of golf, becoming a champion. For me personally nothing beats the feeling you get when you win an ‘A’ flight tournament or that you are in contention to win a tournament. After being a regular contender in tournament golf in my competitive days, I find it very hard to motivate myself lately to get my game to the plus four handicap level I was at a few years back. Not playing competitive golf anymore will do that to you. After all that’s what we all used to practice hard for. Believe me there isn’t many players in this area that have reached that level. Why? Well for one the big highly exposed tournaments are nonexistent around here and the time commitment needed to practice and playing at that level is very demanding. Who has that kind of time to commit to get there? In the coming weeks I will try to lay out a Blueprint to help guide you to becoming a ‘Player’. And trust me; it takes a lot more than just beating balls with your driver. So if you are striving to reach that ‘Player’ status, stay tuned in the upcoming weeks as I will try to get you there. I’ve developed enough ‘Players’ in this area over the years so I think I more than qualify to help you average golfers out there. If attaining ‘Player’ status is not in the cards for you then don’t worry about it, go out and enjoy the game. But if you do, all you have to do is come up with a game plan and work your butt off to get there, that is if that’s what you really want.

Braves make selections at CCHL draft

EMC Sports – The Brockville Braves were busy restocking their stable of young players at last Thursday’s CCHL entry draft, held at the Earl Armstrong Arena in Gloucester. The club picked early and often with their last of seven picks coming in the fifth round of the 10-round event. Earlier last week, the Jr. A club announced their three protected bantam-aged players who were announced to the audience and brought forward for photo opportunities. They are Jack Gill, Thomas Fingler and Eric Faith. It was then down to the business at hand – making the selections of players, many of whom will fill team roster spots in the coming years. With the fifth pick overall, the Braves stayed close to home, choosing 17 year-old forward Brett Van Stralen, a member of the Upper Cana-

da AAA Cyclones. Two selections later, seventh overall, the club picked up Hugo Petit, another forward from the Canadian International Hockey Academy major midget team. The remainder of the team’s draft picks are as follows: • Round 2 (19th overall), Bo Taylor, G, Prescott, Upper Canada Cyclones • Round 2 (20th), Jesse Langen, LW, Thunder Bay, Ontario Hockey Academy • Round 4 (43rd), Owen Salmon, F, Chesterville, Upper Canada Cyclones • Round 4 (44th), Cole Cameron, RD, Johnston, Upper Canada Cyclones • Round 5 (55th), Duncan MacDonald, LD, Dalkeith, ON, Eastern Ontario Wild
