The Foundation provided gas cards to fund travel costs associated with his treatment, as well as restaurant gift cards so the family could enjoy meals together and have one less thing to worry about at the end of a treatment day. South Grenville District High School Vice Principal Christie Reitsma told the story of two children from a working class family who were helped by the foundation. The parents work hard, but cannot find the money to fund summer activities for their children. The foundation approached the family and offered to fund summer camp for both children.

Gananoque’s YIPI students look forward to summer with police mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC News - The perfect summer job has started for four young people in Gananoque. Hands-on experience with the local police, meeting new people, being out and about at community events, and getting more involved in the town, this is what the students can expect. The Gananoque Police Service has hired four students

as part of the Youth in Policing Initiative for the summer. An orientation session was held at the station June 24 during which the YIPI hires got a chance to go over what their duties will be this summer, and to meet some folks from the community. “I love the town and I thought this would be a really exciting experience,� noted Ashley Delaney, 17.

The Gananoque Police Service has hired four students as part of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Youth in Policing Initiative for the summer months. From left, Jonah Paquette, Ashley Delaney, Gananoque Police Services Constable Lynsay Molleson, Jenna Gilbert and Sara Phillips. The students took part in an orientation session June 24. summer in the policing field would give her a bit of a glimpse into a field she is interested in pursuing in postsecondary school. Her goal is to become a social worker, with a focus on working with younger children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope to meet new people and get to know more about the town,â&#x20AC;? she said. She is also keen to see how police work day in and day out, and get to know the officers who protect Gananoque. So far, she likes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;all of their energy, everybody is positive and easy going,â&#x20AC;? she said of the officers she has dealt with thus far. Jenna Gilbert, 17, has lived in Gananoque all of her life and through this experience, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I truly hope to get to know my community more.â&#x20AC;? A friend of hers undertook the program last year and had rave reviews for it. In fact, through her friend, Gilbert realized there is so much going on in her own community that she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even aware of. She

hopes this experience will allow her to experience those things on a different level. She is looking towards a getting her Bachelor of Arts in Law, with a minor in French. She looks forward to the summer ahead. For Sara Phillips, 15, getting the call for the interview felt really good, as she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had any job experience. She was both excited and nervous for the opportunity and looks forward to â&#x20AC;&#x153;just being outside and enjoying the summer.â&#x20AC;? Meeting people and helping folks out around town are two things she is keen on this summer. Having heard from her older friends, some of whom had taken part in the program in yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past, all â&#x20AC;&#x153;good things,â&#x20AC;? she is excited for her new job. This was the second year Jonah Paquette, 16, of Lansdowne, had applied for a position as a YIPI student. He was quite excited to get a call this year. Wanting to get more involved in the community, this was the perfect opportunity. While he is thinking about going into a career in the sciences, he certainly is looking forward to the summer ahead. The students will be acting as town ambassadors, according to Constable Rhonda Grant, during a previous interview with the EMC. 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. Students will always work in pairs and be in contact with a police officer. Students are also given the opportunity to use the police serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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. 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. It is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services, in partnership with the Gananoque Police Service and the Gananoque Police Services Board. According to the application for YIPI, the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purposes include, â&#x20AC;&#x153;enable youth to acquire an understanding of some aspects of policing and encourage them to consider policing as a future career,â&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to develop a realistic understanding of the diverse roles and commitments required to become a Gananoque Police Service Officer,â&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;develop and promote community service with program participants,â&#x20AC;? and more.

Community mourns passing of long-time Westport mayor Bill Thake By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC News – The community is mourning the passing of a political icon not only in Westport, but in a region where he was well-known and loved. The longest-running mayor in Canada, Bill Thake died on Wednesday, June 26 in the Kingston General Hospital after suffering a stroke. He had been at the helm of the council horseshoe since 1969. He was elected to his first term as councillor in 1962 – 51 years ago. He was the warden for Leeds and Grenville for four terms, and had just completed his fourth in 2012. Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark and his wife Deanna are away visiting their children in Fort McMurray. “Unfortunately, we’re going to miss the funeral,” Clark said in a phone interview. “But I’m going to put something together that can be read out.”

Clark, elected mayor of Brockville in 1982, said he met Thake shortly after that at county council. Back then, county council had some 40 representatives. “He approached me and was very welcoming,” Clark said. “Over the years, he gave me some incredible advice, both when I was mayor of Brockville and as a member of provincial parliament.” Clark remembered a “moving experience” during Thake’s tribute to 50 years in politics. “I was really honoured when his 50th anniversary in politics took place that I was at Queen’s Park and was able to give him a tribute in the legislature for his 50 years,” he said. “It was a darned moving experience, because we had people from all parties give him a standing ovation in the legislature.” The Leeds-Grenville community is Clark added that Thake was one of mourning the passing of Westport the most respected municipal politicians mayor Bill Thake. in Ontario, and he considered him his

friend. “Westport, even though it’s a small place, it certainly has a very big presence on the political stage because of the accomplishments of Bill Thake.” “I was shocked to hear about it,” said Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples, who said he’d worked with Thake on some committees. “I know he loved his community and not only that of Westport but of all of eastern Ontario for more than 50 years. He was everybody’s friend. His common sense and practicality… he made had good solutions made good decisions.” Smiths Falls chief administrative officer Steve Fournier worked with Thake as the county CAO from 1999 to 2007. “You couldn’t have found a better politician. He had a great sense of humour and found that humour in everything. He always had a joke or a story to ease the tension of a political situation.”

Fournier said he learned a lot from Thake and the ease with which Thake took his position to heart. “Not only did he have respect from all staff, he knew they all had a job to do and he encouraged them to do it,” Fournier said. Thake was a member of several organizations including the fire department, Lions Club and Masonic Lodge. Thake – Mr. Westport as he was known – is survived by his wife Marlene (Mustard). He was the father of Lucinda (Cindy) and husband Chris Dopson, and their sons Ben and Eric. He was predeceased by his son Bill G., by brothers Edwin (Bud) and Orval, and sisters Earlene, Rheona and Audry. Friends were received at Westport arena last Friday, followed by the service, also at the arena on Saturday. Arrangements were entrusted to Lyons Funeral Home of Westport.

EMC Editorial – June 21 marks the first day of summer and with it comes the season that everyone looks forward to: lazy weekends at the cottage, barbecues on the patio and of course, time spent on the water. The Ontario Provincial Police are encouraging all boaters and paddlers to stay safe out on the waterways this summer. They police 94,000 square kilometres of Ontario’s waterways. Last year, 20 fatal boating incidents occurred in Ontario where 22 people lost their lives. Eighteen of those 22 were not wearing lifejackets. Before embarking on an outing by boat, it’s important to remember to ensure there are enough lifejackets or personal flotation devices for each person coming on board. Even those who consider themselves good swimmers can encounter a scary situation. Alcohol consumption accounted for seven of the 22 boating deaths last year. If you are too intoxicated to get behind the wheel of a car, the same goes for boats. The laws that govern Ontario’s waterways are the same as those travelling the roads. It’s also a good idea to properly familiarize yourself with the boat you are operating. Make sure it has been properly maintained. Also remember that by law, anyone operating a motorized water vessel must have a valid pleasure craft operating card. Use proper judgment and safe practices to ensure you and your family avoid a tragedy out there this summer. For more information about safe boating regulations, visit the Canadian Safe Boating Council website www.csbc.ca.

Mary has her first foray into milking the cows EMC Lifestyle - “I’m telling you, she’s too young,” Mother said. Father said he milked a cow the day he learned to walk! Mother said “that’s nonsense, and you know it.” Rarely did I have so much attention sent my way, and I was loving every minute of it. With four siblings, rarely was I singled out, but that day, I was getting my share. The subject was if I was old enough to milk. Once a calf got to the cow stage, I lost interest in her, and I had little desire to sit with my head on her belly and try to get milk into a pail. But Father said it was time I did my share like everyone else in the family. Needless to say I was never consulted as to how I felt about the issue. And so, on a Saturday it was, Father put a three-legged stool at the rear end of the quietest cow in the cow byre, put a pail under her, and without a word of instruction, told me to go ahead and milk!

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

The old cow turned her head in my direction, and then back to chewing her cud. After watching my three brothers and sister do the milking often enough, I figured there wasn’t much to it. Well, I pulled, and I tugged, and I spit on my hands, and kept saying “sooo Bossie.” Nothing worked. The brothers were real pros at the job. The barn cats lined up on the other side of the gutter, and every so often, a squirt of milk would be headed in their direction, and without fail, the milk went right into their opened mouths. And here

was I who couldn’t even get a drop into the milk pail! My arms ached right up to my shoulders, and a couple times I almost fell off the three-legged stool. It was beyond me why the milk stool only had three legs in the first place! To add to my misery, it was fly season too. And the poor old cow, kept swishing her tail trying to rid herself of the hateful pests, and with each swish, I took the full brunt square in the face! Mother was right. I was too young for this job! But to convince Father was another matter. First of all, I didn’t like the cow byre. It was full of cobwebs, cows smelled differently from the horses. And I wouldn’t put it pass any one of them to give me a good kick, especially when I was engaged in something as personal as tugging at her private parts. Emerson, Everett and Earl were into the snickering, and I knew it wouldn’t

be long before I was into the tears. It was my beloved sister Audrey who finally came to my rescue. She had finished milking her cows, the milk had been emptied into the cans, and she came over to where I was sitting hunched over, still tugging away with absolutely not a drop to show for my efforts! “Let me try,” she said, and I gladly surrendered the stool. The milk spewed out on the first try with Audrey! I blamed it on the cow! I thought I was doing exactly what my sister was doing, but it certainly wasn’t working for me, and I was convinced the cow didn’t like me any more than I liked her. Audrey tried her best to show me how to milk. Nothing worked. Finally, she went up to Father who was at the far end of the cow byre. “Mary’s hands are too small,” she said. “And the cow’s too big,” I offered. Father ran his hand over my head.

Even though it wasn’t near my nose, I could smell cow off him, and milk, neither of which were my favourite odours. ‘Well, we’ll try again some other time,” he said. I was out of the barn before you could say ‘milk pail’. I ran to the house and told Mother I wanted to change my clothes. She knew exactly why. I bundled up what I had on in the barn, and brought the whole pile down to the summer kitchen to wait the Monday wash. I asked Mother for a pan of hot water and wash cloth and towel, which I hauled upstairs to the privacy of the bedroom. I washed every square inch of my body I could reach, but I thought I could still smell the cow byre off my skin. I opened my sister Audrey’s drawer of the little wash stand we shared, and took out her precious can of Lily of the Valley talcum powder, and slathered it See MARY page 9

Hot new season just in time for summer at Arthur Child Museum By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC Events - The weather may be on a bit of a roller coaster, but things at the Arthur Child Museum are really warming up. This upcoming season has something for everyone, with a lot devoted to continuing coverage of the War of 1812. The Canadian War Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 1812 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; One War Four Perspectives is being sponsored by both TD and Ancestry.ca. The exhibit tells the story of the war from the perspective of four different participants â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Canadian, British, American and First Nations, explained Linda Mainse, executive director for the Arthur Child Heritage Museum. The exhibit will be in place at the local museum until Aug. 25. Many may remember the re-enactment of the march by the 104th Foot Regiment held in March and April. The original famous trek brought much needed aid to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cause during the War of 1812. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Early in July we will receive 10 paintings created by 10 New Brunswick artists based on the writings in the journal kept by the Commander of the 104th of Foot regiment,â&#x20AC;? she explained. This regiment left New Brunswick in February of 1813. Making their way towards Kingston to â&#x20AC;&#x153;bolster the troops here.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each artist chose an event from the journal as the focus of a painting. This opportunity came to us quite unexpectedly. We anticipate having them on display at least into mid-August.â&#x20AC;? A Meet the Artist evening will be scheduled soon after their arrival. Currently they are hanging in the New Brunswick legislature. This stunning display is only a small part of the activities the museum has in store for its visitors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our sixth annual fundraiser, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Summer Evening in the Islandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will be held on July 11 at the

RIVA, formerly the Golden Apple (45 King St. W. in Gananoque),â&#x20AC;? said Mainse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The theme is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Then and Nowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Newly opened, we will be treated to an evening of fine wine, gourmet food stations and the wonderful music of the 40â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the Golden Apple was in its prime.â&#x20AC;? At that time, the new website will be launched and images for the new Exhibit Project, a Ships Wheelhouse, will be introduced. Tickets are $125 per person with a $70 tax receipt.â&#x20AC;? Mainse and the museum could never be content with the thought that they might not have covered everything the public might be interested in. Therefore, as chair of Gananoqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1812 Bicentennial Events committee, she was delighted to announce that plans are in the works for another great event planned for July. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the evening of Sunday, July 7, we will present â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Flames of Warâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; a Sound and Light Show in Joel Stone Heritage Park,â&#x20AC;? said Mainse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On Monday, July 8 and Tuesday, July 9, On Tour, another Parks Canada tent exhibit, will set up in the Park. In the late afternoon, early evening of Monday, (July 8), the Flotilla of Oar and Sail will arrive for its first stopover en-route to Chryslers Farm.â&#x20AC;? The three tall ships as well as numerous gunboats will be setting up camp for the night. A meet and greet with town dignitaries is also on the agenda. It is hoped both MP Gord Brown and MPP Steve Clark will be able to attend. The 18â&#x20AC;&#x2122; tipi will be opened for guests only not the public, there will be a Celtic band playing on the stage and more. For more information on the museum and attending any of these programs, please contact them at 613-382-2535 or visit http:// www.1000islandsheritagemuseum.com/.

A community within a community – Meadowview Manor Meadowview Manor — a community within a community — offers a place to call home for senior living. Even before its grand opening June 28, two tenants had already signed on.

residents. Residents are welcome to use the room to simply sit and read a book, to play cards with one another, maybe even have pot lucks or to just relax. The common room is for everyone to use any time they wish.

Everything is new in the clean, bright spacious facility. Set in a serene, tranquil and calming location, Arnold Dixon purchased what was the former Algonquin Public School about three years ago. Once he had a vision, things seem to fall into place and in what he saw as a good omen he got the paperwork all in place Dec. 12, 2012. The 12th day of the 12th month of the 12th year.

The meeting room may be used for get togethers, without interfering with whatever might be happening in the common room.

Offering 10 one bedroom units, and one two bedroom unit, the manor has a nice common room. Attached to that is a kitchen. There is a meeting room and a party room. The common room, it is hoped, will turn into a bit of a social hub for

Dixon envisions tenants becoming friends with one another, and perhaps as they get to know each other, they will look out for one another. He is hoping within the walls of the manor that lasting relationships and bonds can be built and fostered.

12 ST. LAWRENCE EMC - Thursday, July 4, 2013

Really, as mentioned before, Meadowview Manor is a community within the community of Algonquin. Offering a place for senior tenants to call their own, and also a place to socialize, make friends and enjoy some quiet time.

For folks, whether it is losing a spouse, or as they age, there is nothing for that in between stage — between leaving home and going to a care home. This is an in between solution, and one that will allow residents to stay in their community longer. The setting in Algonquin, and for Meadowview Manor, is one in which tenants can have quiet and calm, and when looking out their windows, they will be able to enjoy nature, see grass growing and the buds on trees. Algonquin Public School was built in 1962 and closed in 2009. Dixon purchased the building from the school board and thought his idea might be one that would work. And work has it ever, even before its grand opening two tenants had already signed on to move in. While the interior work is completed, Dixon has a vision for the future. To utilize the approximate 4.5 acres of land the

manor is situated on and develop that into gardens, walking paths - so those wishing to walk don’t need to walk down the road, perhaps to put in patios, and to create a backyard space.

The secure facility as well, ensures there will be no solicitors, and no one coming and going without being allowed in by a resident.

Aside from the outer walls, everything else for the most part has been replaced. There is new plumbing, new electrical, new heating, HVAC, flooring, walls, lights, windows and roof.

Algonquin itself is a lovely location, just 10 minutes from Brockville, and offering a beautiful library, church hall and church. There are several amenities in the small quaint town.

Everything has been revamped and replaced. Each unit has a stove and fridge, there is a common laundry room. Bell satellite is hooked into the building as well, which also provides access to the internet. The one bedroom units are $1,100 a month, which includes heat and hydro. The two bedroom unit is $1,200 a month and this too includes heat and hydro. For seniors this provides an affordable and reliable gauge for expenses month in and month out.

“It is like coming home again as I have lived in the Algonquin area for many years. It will be nice to be closer to family and friends once more. I am very pleased to see that good use is being made of the school building instead of watching it deteriorate,” noted Edith Thornhill in a testimonial for Meadowview Manor. Thornhill is one of the first two tenants whom will be turning the key to their new home Aug. 1. For information or rental inquiries please call 613-802-4442.

Township of Augusta councillors (l-r) Darlene Banning, Doug Malanka and Pauline Cyr were on hand last week at Meadowview Manor in Algonquin to help Reeve Mel Campbell (third from right), developer Arnold Dixon (right) and resident Edith Thornhill cut the ribbon at the grand opening of the newly-built seniors residence.

Students have “over the top amazing” prize weekend in Montreal About the competition

By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC News – A life changing, habit altering project – that is what the Get Up and Move! Challenge was for the Academie catholique Ange-Gabriel of Brockville. “A school changing project,” Patrick Lamon, director for Academie catholique Ange-Gabriel commented of the project. “Changing lifestyles for the future of our next generation.” The school won the grand prize in the challenge and as a result, 20 students headed to Montreal, June 15-16, for a weekend they won’t soon forget. “It was an exhilarating weekend, with nothing short of non-stop over the top amazing treatment,” said Natasha Boudreau, teacher and co-organizer of the Get Up and Move Challenge at the local school, along with fellow teacher Martine Blais. For the weekend, students and their chaperones travelled to Montreal in a coach bus, part of the prize was free transportation, noted Boudreau in an email interview. Upon arrival the group was met by media from TeleQuebec. Some of the students were even interviewed for live television. The Olympic Stadium was, “decorated in fine style with special lights, amazing décor – complete with a red carpet.” During the Yannick Bergeron Magic of Chemistry show, local students were front row, with three even being invited on stage to aid the performer with his experiments. “It was a literal ‘explosive’ show,” she noted. Other highlights for the weekend were sleeping in the Olympic stadium, seeing a free show from Les Argonautes (a tele-

runners who all completed their challenges at the same time.” “The project was such a wonderful experience for each and every one of our students. The message “Get Up and Move” is an important and positive one for the younger generations,” noted Lianne Girard-Lapointe, a teacher and accompanying parent. “With all the computer and

video games, it seems that many children have forgotten how to be physically active if they’re not part of a sports team. With this project, we got a chance to show them and encourage them by participating in many of the activities with them.” The weekend for Girard-Lapointe was “all just so awesome and a time that we will not soon forget.”

Sixty three schools in Ontario were part of the competition, with five picked to attend. Overall there were 4,200 students taking part and 800 adults in attendance. The competition saw students coming from Ontario, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Quebec. People participated from across Canada and even France. From April 29 to May 27, local students were building “energy cubes” at school, during their free time. The more than 50,000 energy cubes the school built represented 15 minutes of physical activity each, activity that would raise heart rate. Students logged their times and totals were tallied each week. In order to achieve the 50,000 cubes collected, students, parents and staff from Academie catholique Ange-Gabriel, the entire school family, put on special events and outings in order to build these cubes and to have fun together at the same time. Spearheading the challenge is Lavoie, known as “the man with a big heart and an iron will.” Known for his accomplishments in Ironman competitions, Lavoie has had two children die from a condition known as lactic acidosis. It’s a condition for which there is no known cure. Lavoie has dedicated many of his endeavours to raising both awareness and funds for this disease. Lamon had been at a school board event and had the fortunate experience of hearing Lavoie speak. He was immediately moved and knew Boudreau was the person to bring this kind of initiative to the students locally. Boudreau was sold on Lavoie, and his challenge, before she even met him.

“Over the top phenomenal year” celebrated by 1000 Islands CDC mdowdall@perfprint.ca

Submitted photo

From left, 1000 Islands CDC chair Lawrence Fielding and MP Gord Brown holding a ceremonial cheque representing the 2013-14 investment in youth interns – $365,000 (number of current youth interns in the background). This was presented during the Established in 1990, the CDC is funded by Industry Canada and FedDev Ontario. Controlled by a board of directors, there are several full time staff and a youth intern (periodically). The local CDC is one of 61 Community Futures Development Corporations in Ontario. All with a mandate to assist in the “economic and social growth of our communities.” Through business loans, counselling, community development and incentive programs - the organization does just that. Since 1990, locally, 3,139 jobs have been created/maintained, there have been 9,475 counselling sessions, close to $16 million in total term loans (23 years/493 clients) and 597 businesses started/expanded/maintained. And all of this with an original government of Canada investment of $1.5 million. The Eastern Ontario Development Program sees funds distributed to support nonprofits - this funding is in a set amount. Five million dollars was invested over nine years, with 513 clients served

EMC Business - The numbers are truly a testament to the over the top success achieved at 1000 Islands Community Development Corporation this year. But perhaps the more genuine success can be seen through the individuals that have been afforded life changing opportunities through the CDC’s programs. These individuals who have been able to achieve their dreams, through small business loans, through the jobs that have been created, through youth internships each one giving someone an opportunity they didn’t have before, opening a door which had perhaps once been locked for them. During the 1000 Islands CDC’s annual general meeting held June 14 on the Empire Sandy, a Tall Ship in Brockville, as part of the Tall Ships Festival, it was announced that close to $2.3 million in small business loans were given out to 59 clients, in 2012/13. This is compared to over $766,000 to 13 clients the year previous. The total lending portfolio has grown from last year’s $2.7 million to now $4 million this year. “It’s been a very, very, very busy season,” Tom Russell, executive director for the 1000 Islands CDC explained with a broad smile. “We are well past record breaking.” The numbers for the loans this year is 75 per cent higher than the previous record - $1.5 million in a year. And the lending portfolio growth, that in itself is, “a watershed moment.” “It makes us more viable,” he explained. “It keeps us in a position to succeed.” Last year 49 businesses were started, expanded or maintained through local CDC programming, while for 2012/13 that number tripled to 146. While jobs created/ maintained this year stood at 589 versus the 2011/12 number of 151. “We are really a hand up,” he nodded. Saying the CDC and what it can offer is an opportunity for the aspiring entrepreneur to, “be able to show their worth.” While Russell attributes this year’s “phenomenal” success for the 1000 Islands CDC, he noted it was due to a number of merging factors. Some with respect to the economy, the increase in lending limits and other factors. However, the credit “really does go to the community. I give credit to the people who are willing to stick their neck out.”

over nine years. In 2012/13 $819,000 has been invested, with 60 clients served. For 2013/14 the same amount will be available. Presentations for EODP and made that day, included a presentation for the Tall Ships Festival - $27,500 (and a personal gift of “grog” from Russell to Dave Paul, economic development officer for Brockville). Support in the amount of $100,000 was given to the Aquatarium for the Aerial Ropes Course ($80,000 from 1000 Islands CDC and $20,000 from Grenville CFDC), and $365,000 was presented for 1000 Islands Youth Interns. Funds are given each year to non-profits to allow them youth interns. The program is a very rewarding one, as it aids in the retention of youth in the community. This allows youth the opportunity to give a career a test drive, often attracting them back to their community and leading them onto a path towards leadership roles. “It changes lives,” Russell said of the funding and the opportunities it opens up for young people. Aside from the rundown of the over the top year of success, a special presentation also took place. Thanks was given to departing EODP coordinator, Paula Roles. “She will be missed,” Russell said.

Local residents shine at volunteer service awards ceremonies EMC News - Volunteers from every corner of Leeds-Grenville were front and centre at the province’s Volunteer Service Awards ceremonies held in Kingston over three nights recently. More than 300 Leeds-Grenville residents were presented with the award in recognition of their years of dedicated service to their communities at the ceremonies, which for the first time this year were held over three nights from June 18-20. Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark was in attendance for all three nights to personally congratulate each of the recipients, a remarkable group of citizens who ranged in age from their pre-teens to their 90s. “These people have given so much to make Leeds-Grenville a better place for all of us to live

and raise our families,” said Clark. “I feel it’s important for me to be there and thank them for all they have given. It’s a wonderful celebration of active citizenship.” Indeed, the volunteers recognized over the three nights have given a combined total of more than 10,000 years of service. “I hope their commitment serves as an inspiration to others to give whatever time they can to the many organizations in Leeds-Grenville who could use their help,” said Clark, who added the fact so many youth were honoured is a sign the community’s future is in good hands. “The Volunteer Service Awards ceremony has been a highlight of my year since I attended my first ceremonies as MPP in 2010,” stressed Clark.

Youth volunteers must be under 24 years of age and have volunteered with a group for at least two consecutive years. The deadline to nominate volunteers is Jan. 25 of each year and Clark urged organizations to take part and ensure their dedicated volunteers get a much-deserved moment in the spotlight.

“Our volunteers give their time freely, without expecting anything in return except the satisfaction of knowing they’ve helped make someone else’s life a little better,” noted Clark. “However, it’s important to let them know how much we value them – and the Volunteer Service Awards ceremony is a great way to make it happen. It’s a very special night for everyone involved.” For more information, including an online nomination form, visit the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration’s website at www.citizenship.gov. on.ca.

Gananoque Rotary Club announces Paul Harris Awards EMC News - The Gananoque Rotary Club squeezed its way into its end-ofseason meeting at Emily Bell’s home as members prepared to get ready for summer activities. But the highlight of the event was the presentation of four Paul Harris Awards. “The Paul Harris Award, in honour of Paul Harris who founded Rotary in 1905, is a worldwide award given to outstanding Rotarians or members of the community,” said Gwen Hundrieser, secretary of the club. “Today, we have four recipients of this award and a $1,000 donation has been given in each of their names to the Rotary Foundation. The Foundation has recognized each of them as a Paul Harris Fellow, and they will join not only many members of this club and community, but over a million Paul Harris Fellows worldwide.” Members of the Paul Harris Awards group include such distinguished names as Mother Theresa, Prince Charles, Nelson Mandella, Pope John II and Indira Ghandi, to name a select few. The Gananoque Rotary Club was proud to announce that the four newest Paul Harris Fellows in the world were now Brenda Asselin, Carolyn Knight, Don Matthews and Susan Tulk. While not a member of Rotary, Asselin works in guidance at Gananoque Intermediate and Secondary School (GISS) and is known for her work with both the Rotary’s Interact group and assists with the Rotary’s exchange student program. She also oversees Gananoque’s Rotary Club’s Student of the Month Award. “The Rotary Club of Gananoque ap-

On June 11, the Gananoque Rotary Club handed out its latest Paul Harris Fellowship Awards at their final meeting of the year. From left, Recipients Carolyn Knight, Don Matthews, Susan Tulk and Brenda Asselin. preciates her dedication to her students and all the great work she does with Student of the Month, Interact Club, Exchange Students and all the activities that these students participate in to raise funds for their projects and travel on missions to places like El Salvador,” said Bell, outgoing Club president. The three remaining recipients are all members of the Rotary Club of Gananoque.

Knight, a past president, has been a member since 1994, and has served on many different committees and boards as both a director and committee chair. She has chaired an “All Candidates” meeting in Gananoque on behalf of Rotary prior to each of the federal, provincial and municipal elections. “She is currently a director at large and has been an integral part of the Club’s student exchange program for many

years,” said Bell. “She is a mentor to the students – both Out-going and In-coming – and is on the selection committee for Out-going students, as well as Club Liaison for Gananoque Students attending Regiopolis High School in Kingston. The Club appreciates her input on legalities and relies on her sound advice.” Matthews, another past president, joined Rotary in 2002. He is chair of the Bay Road Development Committee,

and has been a director with several other committees. “Don is our club ‘techie’,” said Bell. “The tireless ‘Club Bulletin’ designer and distributor, he also designed and updates the Club website. Every year, he hosts the Club Christmas parties along with his lovely wife Marion at Sleepy Hollow B&B, always making the Rotarians welcome.” Last recipient of the evening was Susan Tulk, who has served as president for several months of this past year and will start her position as new Club president on July 1. “A member since 2009, she has served on four Boards of Directors,” said Bell. “Susan has represented our Club at District Assemblies and Conferences, and travelled to El Salvador on a mission with other Rotarians. She is on the RibFest Committee, and has the huge job of managing the beer and wine facilities at RibFest – all the inventory, staff training and ‘Smart Serve’ responsibilities, bottle returns and endless hours on-site from opening until close. She is always involved supporting activities and members, and tirelessly organizing Club events.” These four new recipients join a group of more than 40 local community members and Rotarians who have become Paul Harris Fellows sine 1977. The Club wishes to congratulate them for their tireless efforts, and to let them know that their works will be remembered well into the future.

This secret admirer is looking for an admirer of his own

EMC Lifestyle - Hi my name is Ray and I’m one year old (approximately) grey and white cat. I am already neutered, so I am ready to go home with you today. In our Meet Your Match Personalities, I’m a “Secret Admirer”. When it comes to relationships I’m very levelheaded. I don’t leap paws first, if you know what I mean. But give me a little time, and then I’ll shower you with purrs, head-butts, and plenty of lap time. In the meantime, you may not see a lot of me but I’ll be thinking a lot of you! My adoption fee includes cost of spay surgery, microchip identification, de-flea and de-worm treatment, first set of vaccinations and six weeks of complimentary pet insurance.

Taylor Brown ridge (young woman), and Craig Pike (young man), are neighbours in the Thousand Islands Playhouse’s latest production - Third Floor. Seen here during early rehearsals for the production, which hits the stage from July 5 to Aug. 3, the two might have a budding romance? Audiences will be on the edge of their seat in what is being described as a “rom-com with a thriller twist.”

Third Floor hits Playhouse stage starting tomorrow By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Entertainment - A budding romance? Perhaps not. While audience goers will think they are being taken on a love story, their journey will take an abrupt left turn as a prank goes south in the Thousand Islands Playhouse production of Third Floor. This “thriller with unexpected twists” hits the stage from July 5 to Aug. 3. Cast and crew were hard at work during a special preview day June 25. “When a young woman (Taylor Trowbridge) buys her first condo, it seems that all her dreams are coming true. Then she meets him. Her across-thehall neighbour (Craig Pike) is definitely strange – yet strangely attractive. In this Hitchcock-inspired story, the two bond over the strange habits of their neighbours. But when a prank goes horribly wrong, the two become accomplices and realize they don’t know as much about each other as they thought they did,” notes a press release about the production. Called a “fast-paced thriller,” playwright Jason Hall hoped “it is enjoyable for the audience.” The story actually started with a real event, a PostIt note referred to in the production, actually happened in a building Hall was living in. Without ruining any of the upcoming production, “that’s where the play began,” in Hall’s mind. The production is a thriller, and when writing the script, Hall noted the trick is to keep it “fun, unexpected,” yet believable at the same time. Thousand Islands Playhouse Artistic Director Ashlie Corcoran is directing this production, and was a classmate of Hall’s at Queen’s University. Hall has an impressive repertoire.

For his pieces he has won Canada’s Herman Voaden playwriting award, was Time Out London’s Critics’ Choice, while yet another of his works was runner-up for the United Kingdom’s John Whiting award. This particular piece, Third Floor, has been produced in Europe - in London and in Bavaria. “Playwright Jason Hall was a classmate of mine at Queen’s University,” explains Corcoran in a press release. “And in 2011, I collaborated with him on the world premiere of Third Floor at Toronto’s Summerworks Festival. Our audience jumped out of their seats every night!” For Hall, who is here until the opening of the production, it is “a real honour to be back” in Canada as he currently lives in England. Born and raised in Toronto, Kingston became “home number two” for him. The across-the-hall neighbour, actor Craig Pike, likes to take on characters that are different from himself. Taking on stories he can learn from, and in particular learn of the nuances of how humans relate to one another, are of real interest. As an actor, he also looks at what parts of himself are similar to the character he is playing at the time, and tries to create a world inside his own head, based on that character. For this particular production, he says, “it’s fun knowing the audience might be getting scared,” referring to where the plot twist might lead. He and his cast mate are the only two on stage for all 28 scenes. Pike has played a number of roles including at the Shaw Festival, for the Blackguard Theatre Company, for CTV television, Sun TV, and more. Other production members include set and costume design by Jung-Hye Kim, See THIRD FLOOR page 23

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

EMC Lifestyle - When moving day comes, no matter how long you have anticipated and planned out the day, there are bound to be a few bumps in the road. The best way to make sure that you are ready to handle anything and everything that comes your way on moving day? Budget more than enough time to fully carry out your move and add extra time to account for any unforeseen circumstances that arise, says Phil Dorner president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “When you’re managing family members, helpers you’ve enlisted and movers, there are many balls in the air so avoid the chaos as much as possible by leaving kids and pets with relatives or friends and allowing yourself plenty of extra time,” says Dorner. Tips to avoid moving day madness:

· Be organized: Make sure that before you start packing, you do a thorough purge of your possessions. Have all items for donation, recycling and disposal out of the house before moving day to reduce volume and confusion. Label all your boxes. · Have supplies on-hand: Make sure you have packing tape, boxes, bins, blankets, bubble wrap, dollies, markers and labels. · Pack smart: Heavier items should go in small boxes and larger boxes should be filled with lighter items. When it comes time to load the truck, be strategic. The last boxes in will also be the first out so keep that in mind when loading the truck or van. · Parking: Make sure that there is somewhere the moving truck or van can park to load and unload. If you’re moving into a high rise building, you may need to reserve an elevator.

· Be present: Make sure that you are onhand when movers are picking up and delivering your things. The movers will issue you an inventory of all items. Look over the list carefully and make sure the inventory list is correct. If an item is lost or damaged, you don’t want to find out later that it cannot be traced. · Make a checklist: Keep track of your progress by making a list of the day’s tasks. A list is also a great way to keep track of all your boxes and their contents so you can cross-check with the mover’s list. “Moving day doesn’t have to be high stress, the more prepared you are, the easier it will be,” says Dorner. “Remember, you are only a few short hours away from enjoying your new home!” Submitted by the Ontario Real Estate Association.

Mosquito fleet to Bring Mulcaster’s Pursuit to Gananoque EMC Events - Gunfire on the water, bateaux and gun boats lined up as best they can to repel the invading American fleet, then move on themselves to French Creek (Clayton, NY) to attack General James Wilkinson’s flotilla. It sounds like utter madness, but in the fall of 1813, Captain William Howe Mulcaster did precisely that, marshalling his two sloops, two schooners and four gunboats manned by a scant force of 1,100 to take on Wilkinson, who was heading for Montréal commanding 300 vessels and 7,000 armed troops. Like a swarm of mosquitoes, Mulcaster’s troops went after the Americans relentlessly, biting here, stinging there. And as they went, they gained strength, being joined by various local militia forces and a force of First Nations warriors under Lieutenant Charles Anderson of the Indian Department. Although small, they were mighty, and the annoyance they created provided plenty of distraction for the Americans, so much so that after getting past Fort Wellington’s big guns in Prescott, Wilkinson decided that he’d had enough. He would take on these “mosquitoes”

once and for all and settle the problem permanently. Thus came about the Battle of Crysler’s Farm, a strategically important and decisive battle in the War of 1812. “Wilkinson later attempted to claim Crysler’s Farm as an American victory, but his career, already in disrepute, was severely tarnished by what most saw as a bungled, ignominious defeat,” says the Canadian Encyclopaedia. “Against a combined British force of no more than 2,400 men, Boyd recorded approximately 340 killed and wounded and 100 captured. Morrison’s troops also suffered from this bloody encounter, with estimates on casualties ranging from 180 to about 200. Despite these losses, British army surgeon William ‘Tiger’ Dunlop described Morrison’s victory as ‘a very brilliant little affair.’” “To mark Mulcaster’s pursuit of the American flotilla, The Gananoque 1812 -1813 Bicentennial Event committee will present several highlights that capRe-enactors from all over Ontario will come out to pending on wind and water conditions. This is just a ture the spirit of this Battle that Saved travel by oar and sail from Kingston to Crysler’s Farm small part of what is planned by the 1812 committee Canada,” says Jan Gravelle of the 1812 in Morrisburg. They are expected to arrive sometime as they celebrate Mulcaster’s Pursuit from July 7-9 at committee. “The Flames of War sound See RAID page 26

Westminster school wins Walk to School and Walk at School Award EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Westminster Public School was honoured recently with a Walk to School and Walk at School Award from Green Communities of Canada for its School Travel Planning program. Suzanne Rivard, the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville area Heart and Stroke Foundation volunteer mission chair, presented a certificate to Principal Ray Westendorp, along with two sets of classroom pedometers, and a $150 gift card from Wintergreen. The pilot project encourages staff and students to walk or cycle to work, improving their health and reducing their carbon footprint by reducing

the use of cars and the exhaust they generate. The committee implementing the plan is also working on route planning to encourage students to walk to and from school along volunteer-supervised routes, and is working with before and after-school childcare providers to institute walking programs to replace busing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Green Communities wanted to give Westminster Public School this award because they think your school has done a great job, and that you deserve it,â&#x20AC;?

Healy mentioned sometimes things are sent to countries and the senders never really know if the items are used. So, with the pillow cases made to specifications, they are quite sure they are filling a need. Cartwright also mentioned that all the items being sent to Chernobyl will be on display in church this coming Sunday for the minister to incorporate this project in prayer and to pray for the Chernobyl people. “I think we’ll do another work bee next year,” said Healy. As an extra, Cartwright and Healy added pocket prayers which are the smaller version of a prayer quilt, either to keep for oneself or to give away to someone in need of a prayer. The accompanying verse reads, ‘This pocket prayer was made for you to put in your pocket or purse. Throughout the day when your fingers touch the quilt, be mindful of God’s love and grace for you. Keep it as a tangible symbol of God’s peace

or if you prefer say a prayer for someone else and pass it along in the form of this tiny gift.” Healy mentioned that these pocket prayers are available in the Brockville hospitals. Should anyone have cotton material which they would like to donate to the Bee’s Knees to continue their wonderful work of giving, please contact Liz Healy at healy3@cogeco.ca or call 613-345-5747.

EMC News – Very soon the seniors in Chernobyl will know who the Bee’s Knees Prayer Quilt Ministry of Christ United Church in Lyn are. They are sending shoeboxes of personal care products and other sewn items. According to Bee’s Knees co-chairs Brenda Cartwright and Liz Healy, this group has already donated 265 prayer quilts locally, for people in need. For their outreach project, the Bee’s Knees are sending six shoeboxes, about 15 pillow cases, four quilts and pocket prayers to mature adults in Chernobyl through the Shoeboxes for Seniors which is part of the Canadian Air for Chernobyl association. “Somebody said they could use pillowcases as they do not have elongated pillows,” added Healy. “Their pillows are square and Brenda came up with a flip ‘n sew kinda of method with the yardage cut.” One night the Bee’s Knees came together, worked for four or five hours and were able to sew 20 pillow cases. The reason why the ladies have taken on this project is because they can relate as to the need. “We have a lot of senior ladies in our group and Brenda thought it just tied in,” told Healy. “We are very blessed here in Canada with what we have. We heard that the seniors in Chernobyl are sometimes forgotten and the kids in orphanages are well tended to by the local aid and other aids. When we heard about the seniors, we thought it that would tie nicely in with our seniors giving to seniors.” Cartwright knew of the Shoeboxes for Seniors campaign from her work and decided to bring the idea to the church group at Lyn. “I think we did it (Shoeboxes for Seniors) a couple of years ago on a smaller scale,” said Cartwright, “I thought this year we would involve the congregation and put it in the church bulletin for three

Art and equines come together

Submitted photo

Working together as a team Kim Nuttall of Nuttall Gallery and Framing and Wendy Waller of the Charleston Lake Riding School sat down together to discuss a program they could put on together and so they did. Here are some of the students and horses which took part. Rarely a program arises that provides the area. two very different expertises together Ten young artists from Nuttall’s Art that join perfectly as this program, this Studio participated in the first Art and is a unique experience for the youth of Riding Horses Program this past winter.

With the Celebration of Canada Day comes the official start of summer holidays, so Mike Fair’s is giving you a break with low pricing, low interest financing, and 7 nights of paid accommodation to over 3,000 destinations.

The treatment and prevention of diabetes is constantly evolving. At the Canadian Centre for Research on Diabetes, we believe that participating in clinical research is an essential way to help advancements in effective diabetes care.

It consisted of six Saturdays which were two hour lessons each, with each Saturday one hour instructed by Wendy then switching to art with Kim for the second

hour, all held on location at the Charleston Lake Riding School. In the riding portion of these classes the students were able to go over the basics in horse safety, grooming, riding and ended with horse games. In the art portion the young artists used art pencils, charcoal, and chalk pastels to sketch a live horse model. Beginning with sketching a horse standing still, the following weeks took them to sketching a horse in motion and then on to details of a horse’s face for a final horse portrait lesson. On the last day before going home the students enjoyed thanking the horses at the stables by feeding them carrots and apples. Waller presented ribbons and certificates to the students and all enjoyed cake and hot chocolate. It was such a successful first attempt for this program it was decided that it would be offered again. On July 27 a repeat of the same program for new students, then a Level 2 Art and Riding Horses Program will follow with more riding lessons and painting horses in watercolours. At only $15 an hour this Art and Riding Horses program is affordable to all families. To register for this wonder program and more new programs such as Summer Youth Art Day Camp – art with the flora and fauna, only $25 a full day fee, please contact Kim Nuttall call 613659-2713 or e-mail kimnuttall@gmail. com. A future course for the Art and Riding Horses for adults is in the planning stages if interested please contact Kim as well.

EMC Entertainment - What a unique idea to put sketching horses and English horse back riding together in the same youth program. This was developed by two local businesses of just north of the village of Lansdowne. Working together as a team Kim Nuttall of Nuttall Gallery and Framing and Wendy Waller of the Charleston Lake Riding School sat down together to discuss this idea and quickly this special program was born. Nuttall Gallery and Framing has been in business for 19 years now specializing in preservation custom picture framing, as well Nuttall paints local scenes of area flora and fauna, over the years on and off. She has also offered art classes to adults and to youth as young as four years of age. Her studio now has become a little art school; in the last three years has had over 130 young students take part in art lessons at her picturesque country art studio. With the lack of art being offered in the elementary school systems, she volunteers every year at five area schools, with approximately 1,200 students, with an art program she has developed. “Once the week of teaching an entire school I am tired but the young artists give me an inner boost of artistic energy, I just love it,” she says. Charleston Lake Riding School and B&B facilities include an impressively large indoor arena, outside arena, cross country fences and show jumps. Wendy Waller a British Horse Society Qualified Riding Instructor with 30 years of experience with horse’s and teaching came to Canada from UK with her husband Paul to begin this business in 2002. The riding school offers English riding lessons for children and adult’s, dressage lessons, jumping lessons, cross country jumping lessons, birthday parties, horse boarding, summer camps, competition experience, equine Canada level’s and is part of the Canadian Pony Club.

Transmission service: don’t get given the slip EMC Lifestyle - Recently we had a discussion on the pros and cons of regular and preventative maintenance and automakers’ tendency to stretch their recommended service intervals in terms of time and mileage. A lot of dealerships as well as independent shops and mass merchandisers have started to suggest a general inspection combined with an engine oil and filter change two or three times a year to make sure their customers don’t get left on the side of the road. During these inspections, techs will inspect a number of vehicle systems and fluids and filters and one that is critical for continued reliable operation is the automatic transmission fluid. Vehicle makers differ quite a bit when it comes to time and mileage intervals for transmission fluid and filter replacement. Some are as low as 72K km and some are as high as 150K km. It’s always best to refer to your own vehicle’s owner’s manual to be certain of your vehicle’s needs. This fluid operates under pressure and at high temperatures. It also

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

serves to collect small metal particles that wear off of various internal transmission surfaces as a matter of normal wear and tear. These particles end up trapped in the transmission’s oil pan courtesy of a magnet placed there by the assembler. The fluid is used to transfer rotational force from the front of the transmission (where it’s bolted to the engine) to the rear where it connects to the final drive and drive axles. Repair shops, including dealerships will usually recommend one or two variations on replacing the fluid. The first involves removing the pan, draining whatever fluid comes out, replacing the filter and fluid. The downside with this is that it will only drain, on average, about 4 to 5 litres of the approximately 10-

12 litre total that the transmission holds. A good portion of the fluid will remain in the torque convertor or in certain internal passages. If your vehicle requires fluid replacement at the low end of the interval spectrum (say 72K km), this method isn’t as bad as it sounds because over the course of two or three such services, the majority of the fluid will get exchanged. The second most popular method involves the use of specialized flushing equipment which pushes old fluid out of the transmission by means of a circulation pump. This will effectively remove over 90 per cent of the fluid but the downside here is that few shops recommend replacing the filter with this method. The best way is to flush the fluid out and have the filter replaced at the same time. The cost of this varies with vehicle types but the general range for the average vehicle is between $250 and $350. Leaving this maintenance item uncompleted can lead to internal transmission failure which can bring a minimum cost of around $2,500

for removal and a basic overhaul and a few days off the road or more. A lot of drivers wait until a poor shifting or slipping symptom arises before getting the service done and in many cases like this, power flushing the transmission will make things worse not better. Make sure this fluid is checked at every oil change and keep track of when its replacement is due and get it done.

A Taste of Japan helps student finance exchange program By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC Entertainment - Imagine waking up in a culture and country radically different from your own. The language is different, the food is different, all of the customs are different. Even the people look nothing like you. They are all very friendly and polite, but everything is new and not like anything youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been accustomed to. Now imagine that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve volunteered to do this, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be staying there for a whole year. This is exactly what Elizabeth Walker of Gananoque has decided to do through the Rotary Interact Exchange program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided to go on a youth exchange for a chance of a great adventure and a chance to represent Canada and my community as well,â&#x20AC;? says Walker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided to go to Japan because of how different and unique the culture is as I am hoping to reach a whole new level of culture shock and through that, understanding.â&#x20AC;? She is hoping to leave in August, and needs to raise $1,000 to help defray some of her costs for travel. In order to do that, she is organizing several fundraisers, the first being a special evening called â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Taste of Japanâ&#x20AC;? which was recently at Gananoque Intermediate and Secondary School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thirty-five people came out to the dinner,â&#x20AC;? says Walker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order to come up with the menu I searched through an old Japanese cookbook translated to English.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My classmates were my taste testers. People loved the food, and I received many compliments for the food and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ambianceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It went fantastic. The food was prepared by the Hospitality crew at GISS, but I really want to give special thanks to Emily Sharpe, Neda Amini, Stephanie Docs, and Bentley for all the help theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given me making this possible.â&#x20AC;? While in Japan, Walker will be staying with three host families in Osaka. She will be travelling on a student visa and attending school while she is there. Although she cannot take gainful employment during her time away, she plans to devote time to volunteer work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope to give them a greater understanding of Canada, create new friendships, and create a chance for others to consider youth exchange for themselves,â&#x20AC;? says Walker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For myself, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to independence, new friends, a greater understanding of Japan, a greater understanding of Photo by LORRAINE PAYETTE myself, a chance to represent Canada A strong team of volunteers helped Elizabeth Walker with â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Taste of Japanâ&#x20AC;? recently, a fundraising dinner and my community to the best of to help her get the money necessary to finance her upcoming trip to Japan as a Rotary Interact exchange my abilities and to experience a greater adventure beyond my wildest student.

Then I picked out seven recipes to attempt, each with a separate style of Japanese cooking. Each week or so I would try each dish. If it was good I would include it. Most of them - those that I included in the menu - were fantastic, the rest - such as pickled radish - were not included.

Brockville credit counsellor gets nationwide award EMC Business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Betsy Elliott has been counseling folks in the Brockville area about financial issues for the past nine years. She was recently recognized by Credit Counselling Canada with a national award for providing exceptional service at the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Annual General Meeting held in Ottawa on June 10. Elliott was nominated for the award by colleague Susan Watts, who works alongside her as Assistant Director of the Employment and Education Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Betsy lives and breathes the desire to help people break free from their financial issues that limit or inhibit their happiness in life,â&#x20AC;? Watts explained. She adds Elliott does not apply a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;one size fits allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approach to credit and financial counseling. Instead, â&#x20AC;&#x153;she offers a whole tool kit of

techniques and approaches to create balanced guidance and options for each person and situation,â&#x20AC;? noted Watts. Instead, Elliott regularly goes above and beyond credit and financial when it comes to assisting clients, Watts stated. She cites several instances where Elliott has helped people who believed they were beyond help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Betsy was the brainchild behind our Help With Heat program which provides emergency relief to eligible low-income applicants using alternative heating sources,â&#x20AC;? Watts also explained that Elliott attends landlord tribunals to ensure her clients are treated fairly, and has gone to small claims court to support clients and successfully negotiated smaller claims amounts for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Betsy has chosen to be available to her clients (and) com-

munity professionals and staff 24-7,â&#x20AC;? said Watts â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her philosophy is that if she can decrease or eliminate stress immediately then solutions are easy to find.â&#x20AC;? Elliott acknowledges it is a great privilege to be recognized by a Canada-wide organization such as Credit Counselling Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every day, each person who works at 1000 Islands Credit Counselling and the Employment and Education Centre strives towards providing the best possible service for each of our clients,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be recognized for this is a great honour for our organization.â&#x20AC;?

“Behind the Rainbow Sticker” or “Walking the Talk” conference sheds light on LGBTQ issues By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News – About 40 individuals attended the Behind the Rainbow Sticker conference held on Wednesday, May 22 at C.J.’s Banquet Hall and Catering, Brockville. This event, for service providers, was to build empowerment, promote safety and encourage inclusion and equality for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Two-Spirit and Questioning (LGBTQ) community. This seminar provided those present an opportunity to learn first-hand how they make services more accessible to LGBTQ youth. One of the three workshops presented was by keynote speaker Allison Cope, her topic, Walking the Talk. This workshop provided a need to understand the diversity of LGBTQ communities living within a heterosexual society and appreciate the uniqueness of individuals who contribute to today’s culture. Cope, with her humour and honesty talked about PFLAG, creating an authentic safe space, gestures, and whether the act is meaningful. Starting with the Rainbow Flag, she asked what this flag or sticker seen in a shop window or flying outside of an organization represents? “It is a symbol to represent the queer community, to show our diversity, our community, our strength and our pride,” said Cope. She continued to say that diversity represents all the colours of the rainbow

and the very diverse group of people within the one community of LGBTQ. “We are not all the same,” stated Cope. “There are enormous differences among us. We do have some things in common that creates a sense of community. It takes real strength to be queer in this society. It’s a lot easier now.” Cope referred to her years of growing up and how hard it was for her to live a life of societal unacceptance. “A lot of things have changed,” said Cope. “We now have a premier of this province who has come out, she’s a lesbian.” Although there have been changes towards this community, Cope feels the youth are still vulnerable. She pointed out that youth in schools are targets for homophobia, same as the military or prison. This irrational hatred, disapproval, or fear of homosexuality, gay and lesbian people, or their culture, has led to youth suicide. The LGBTQ person was unable to accept their sexuality as who they were or the constant torture from the heterosexual community. “So the Rainbow Flag or sticker shows pride in whom we are,” indicated Cope. For those who are not familiar with the Pink Triangle symbol, according to Cope, it was created in Nazi Concentration Camps by the queer community to represent their struggle against oppression. “It is a very powerful and poignant symbol,” said Cope. “It’s not to be taken

lightly.” Safe space When a business or organization puts up the Rainbow Flag it sends a message that these premises are welcoming to LGBTQ. “If I walk down a street in a city I do not know and I see two coffee shops, one with the Rainbow Flag, I’ll approach the one with the Rainbow Flag,” shared Cole. “This shop is advertising that I will not be abused, it is safe and I can be me.” Confidentially is also a safe space for those who have not come out yet and for those who tell this information, it is very disturbing to the individual who has trusted this person. Defining our terms Cope quickly spoke about the terms homophobia, internalized homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, internalized transphobia and genderism. She noted that there’s a higher rate of addiction in LGBTQ communities along with health problems due to the negativity surrounding the individual. Youth are exposed to so much during their formative years that they end up internalizing the way they are treated which become unconstructive behaviours. Since there were other workshops that would be going in depth, Cope didn’t spend a lot of time on any one term. Homophobic/Transphobic Levels of Exclusion The levels of exclusion Cope spoke about were repulsion, pity, tolerance and

acceptance. Regarding repulsion, the LGBT are seen as a ‘crime against nature’, that they are unnatural, immoral or wicked and anything is justified to change LGBT’s, namely electroshock, prison, exclusion from society or reparative therapy. “You cannot change someone’s sexual orientation,” said Cope, “you are what you are and no amount of therapy can change it. You can choose not to act on it. It’s your gender identity which you are born with.” Pity is based on heterosexual chauvinism. Heterosexuals believe LGBTQ should be pitied as queer is a sickness and they would be straight if they could. As for tolerance, you can be queer, but be discrete, don’t flaunt it and it is only a phase in which people can out grow. “A good example, what is happening with school boards?” asked Cope. “It has been realized that kids are being bullied for all kinds of things. Boys may be or may not be gay but that tends to be the focus.” Also in this section is acceptance, people will state that you are not a lesbian to me, you are a person. Positive levels of inclusion These levels include support, admiration, appreciation and nurturance. People can work towards the safeguard of the rights of LGBTQ. Admiration is realizing how hard it is for individuals to have the courage to be themselves.

Under appreciation, realize the values and diversity these communities bring and stand up to those who demonstrate homophobic attitudes. Regarding nurturance, be proud to be part of an LGBTQ organization and openly advocate for full and equal inclusion in all levels of society. “The world I’d like to live in is when sexual orientation does not matter,” indicated Cope. When asked if Cope felt that religion was at the root of societal attitude towards LGBTQ; her response was, “I think it is a route that is used, that religion is used as an excuse for homophobia and transphobia, it can be a mechanism to continue on. But at the same time I want to be clear there are a lot of branches of religions who are doing a lot to support LGBT people and their rights. So the church could be a force to move things forward for sure for equal rights or it can be a hindrance, it can be both things. People will use religion to meet their own needs.” Cope grew up in a family where her father was an Anglican minister. Talking further, Cope, who has been in a long-term lesbian relationship, gave her thoughts on marriage as an institution of the state (province). “The state (province) affords particular rights and privileges that come along with marriage,” said Cope. So in Cope’s view, the state (province) should allow marriage regardless of sexual orientation, plus all the trimmings that go along with it.

Humane Society seeks to place barn cats; Don’t forget upcoming Fur Ball

Howard Hartley was this year’s recipient of Carveth Care Centre’s Resident of the Year Award. A dinner was recently held at the home in his honour and on hand to help him celebrate were his wife Marjorie (seated beside Howard), and back row, from left - son in law Norm Patterson, daughter Marilyn Patterson, grand-daughter Jenna Sloan, daughter Anita Sloan and son in law Greg Sloan.

EMC News - The Gananoque & District Humane Society is looking for farm homes with barns where we can place several cats. They were brought in recently, are not suitable to be adopted out as pets, but have been fixed and vaccinated. They do need to belong somewhere, so need access to shelter, food, and water. They can repay you by being their excellent mousetrap selves, without producing more kittens. If you can help please contact us at 613-382-1512 or email humanesociety@bellnet.ca.

style machines, low on displacement but high on riding value. These bikes have evolved to the GV250 and GV650 Pro and find themselves equally at home on commutes or weekend getaway lanes. Their line has expanded and now includes GT-style race-inspired bikes and the performance cruiser ST7 models. My tester from Dan Witmer of GearHead Canada was the GT250R. This red and white faring clad pocketsomething, looked great in its stance and provided an adequate seat height of 32” that provided easy swing over even for an aging test pilot. In monocoloured trim the GT250R carries an MSRP of just $4,200; my two-toned version is only $200 more. If you want the bones without skin, a ‘naked’ version of the GT250R is available in three solid colour choices for just $3,799 (all prices before destination charges, dealer prep, license fees, and tax). As the moniker suggests, power for the GT250R comes from an air/oil

REFINISHING

cooled 250 cc twin breathing through eight valves on a dual-over-head-cam. The fuel injection system removes the need for a choke and annoying fast idle warm-ups. A five-speed transmission transfers the 30 hp via a chain to a rear 17” tire. Stopping performance is strong and comes from a three-disc system using twin-piston 300 mm calipers on the front and a 230 mm unit on the rear. Front suspension is comprised of 43mm inverted forks and the rear uses a swing arm with a progressive linkage shock that’s preload adjustable. The front tire is a 110/70-17 and the rear is 150/70-17. The GT250R propelled my 230 lb mass without much complaint and shifts were solid and powered well by a wide torque-band. A slight stiffness to the steering and pegs I put down to being the first rider on this machine out of the box. Even with the low position handle-bars, and my lack of experience with this stance, signal and lamp controls, along with brake and clutch levers (which are adjustable) were easy to operate. A three-position foot-peg set-up, along with the adjustable levers will permit a wide range of riders to find just the right position for comfortable yet spirited rides. The GT250R definitely won’t give many mid-displacement bikes a scare, but it provides a great balance between a solid commuter and weekend freedom tourer. For those not seeking

a race-inspired riding position the less dressed GT250 has a different set of handlebars that permits a more upright stance. Instrumentation includes a digital inset for fuel, temp, and trip distance with an adjustable brightness feature. Hyosung provides a full one year parts and labor warranty with a second year for parts only. The GT250R is rated at 78 mpg and 17 L fuel tank provides plenty of range. I found the GT250R supplied confidence by means of the ease of

operation in a ride on a busy Ottawa Saturday morning route. The mirrors need to provide a slightly wider range and the seat bottom definitely could use a little more padding. With the ease of cold starts and the nimbleness that a compact-framed bike provides in urban settings at a price point lower than any of the competitions’ MSRP’s, Hyosung might be your first or next ride.

EMC Lifestyle - The bikes and vehicles I road-test for these reviews (yes it’s a tough job, but I’m willing to make sacrifices) come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian head offices of the manufacturers and local retailers. I prefer to use retailers whenever possible because they stock units that more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higher-end models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out the manufacturers’ websites or better yet, call your local retailer and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. It’s the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The Hyosung 250GTR motorcycle I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at GearHead Canada in Bells Corners, Ottawa. Hyosung motorcycles have had just as much success since their launch in Canada as every other Korean vehicle importer. They were established in the late 70’s and quickly developed a technology cooperation agreement with Suzuki. They grew from there and never looked back. They entered the North American market in 2005 marketing mid-level equipped bikes at entry level prices (a practice they continue with today). They started in Canada with cruiser-

O star of the Sea, help me and show me here You are my Mother. O Holy Mary Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to secure in my necessity.

Dylan Evoy returns to victory lane at Mohawk

Local racer battles for fourth place finish at Brockville Speedway the checkered flag. He started the 20 lap main event from the 19th position and as the green flag dropped Evoy charged through the field. A couple caution periods kept the field bunched together, and after just four laps of racing he was well inside the top 10. Before the race hit the halfway point, Dylan had now climbed inside the top five, and a restart on lap nine was just what he needed as he powered to the outside of the track with a thrilling move to grab the lead as the race resumed. He remained out front for the final distance, and earned his third win at Mohawk Raceway in four starts in 2013. “The car was working really good tonight. I really have to thank all the crew, and our sponsors for all their support this season,” says Evoy from victory lane. “Hopefully we can keep it going throughout the season.” The next stop for the Evoy team was Brockville Ontario Speedway on Saturday night. Unlike their season at Mohawk Submitted photo by RICK YOUNG Raceway, Evoy has struggled in the early Dylan Evoy returns to victory lane on Friday night at part of the season trying to get their new car dialled in. After a delay at the track Mohawk Raceway.

By CRAIG REVELLE Finish Line Web Design

EMC Sports - For the first time in several seasons, Dylan Evoy had posted backto-back DNF (Did Not Finish) with being caught up in crashes Saturday night, June 15 at Brockville, and again on Wednesday night, June 19 in a rare visit to Can Am Motorsports Park in Lafargeville, New York. They were hoping to put that behind them going into the following weekend as they returned to Mohawk International Raceway on Friday evening, June 21 and Brockville Speedway on Saturday night, June 22. At Mohawk Raceway, Dylan has more wins than anyone in the history of the Sportsman division at the track. After finishing second the previous week, he was looking to get back on track and return to victory lane. He started from deep in the field in his qualifying heat race, and worked his way up to third place before Jøtul Woodstove Changeout

due to rain in the area, Evoy hit the track for his qualifying heat race. He started from the fifth position, but was unable to make up any ground due to the wet track conditions and finished in fifth place. In the 25 lap main event, Dylan started from the 11th position on the inside of row six and patiently worked his way forward. By lap 12 he was in sixth place and continued to pursue a top five result. On the final restart with just six laps remaining, Dylan was able to gain two more positions and finished with a solid fourth place effort. This coming weekend, Dylan will return to Mohawk International Raceway on Friday night and will be back at Brockville Speedway on Saturday evening. Evoy Racing thanks all of their sponsors for their help and support. To stay up to date with Dylan Evoy and Evoy Racing throughout the off-season, log on to the team’s website at www.evoyracing.com.

he would have a new stitch-mark painted on. The mask became one of the most recognized of the era, and the original mask is now on the wall of his grandson’s bedroom. Cheevers’ final season as a player came in 1980, when popular coach Don Cherry was replaced by Fred Creighton. After winning their division seven of the previous nine seasons, the Bruins were in third place late in the year, and general manager Harry Sinden fired Creighton, serving as interim coach for the remainder of the season himself. For the 1981 season, Cheevers was named as coach. Despite a shocking sweep in the 1981 playoffs to the Minnesota North Stars Sinden stuck with Cheevers, who led the Bruins to two first place and two second place finishes in their division, including to the league’s best record in 1983, where the team fell only to the eventual Stanley Cup champion New York Islanders in the semifinals. Cheevers was replaced by Sinden midseason two years later. With a record of 204-126-46, he ranks 7th in career winning percentage (.604) for NHL coaches with more than 250 games experience.

In the fall of 1972, he jumped to the fledgling World Hockey Association, playing three-and-a-half seasons for the Cleveland Crusaders as one of the league’s best goalies, winning First Team All-Star honours in 1973 and Second Team honours in 1974 and 1975. Returning to the Bruins during the 1976 season after financial disputes with Cleveland management, Cheevers formed a goalie tandem with Gilles Gilbert. Cheevers retired at the end of the 1980 season. Cheevers and Gilbert were runners-up for the Vezina in the 1979-80

can Hockey League single-season record for most victories by a goalkeeper. In 1965 he totaled 48 victories in leading the Rochester Americans to their first Calder Cup championship. He spent six years in all in the minors until, by 1967, he was Boston’s number one goalie. He was a member of both the 1970 and 1972 Stanley Cup winning teams, gaining a reputation as a driven, “money” goaltender. In 1972, he went undefeated in 33 consecutive games, a NHL record that still stands.

season, which was won by Don Edwards and Bob Sauvé. Cheevers had a career NHL goals against average of 2.89, recorded 230 NHL wins, played in 419 NHL games, and registered 26 NHL shutouts. He was also second in the WHA’s history in career GAA and shutouts, despite playing in only half the league’s seasons. Cheevers was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1985, and is one of the few honoured goaltenders in the Hall to have never been named to the First or Second NHL All-Star Team nor won the Vezina Trophy. Cheevers was not afraid to stray from the crease both to cut down the shooter’s angle and to act as a “third defenseman”. He was very aggressive with opposing players who strayed into or near the crease. Not a “stand-up” goalie, Cheevers could often be found on his knees or even his side. He perfected this “flopping” style while playing for Rochester during the 1962–63 season. Americans’ coach Rudy Migay had Cheevers practice without his stick, thus requiring him to rely more on using his body and his pads. From that point on Cheevers became one of hockey’s best goalkeepers. Cheevers’ iconic stitch-pattern goaltender mask came after a puck hit him in the face during practice. Cheevers, never one to miss an opportunity to skip out of practice, went to the dressing room. Bruins coach Harry Sinden followed him to the dressing room, where he found Cheevers enjoying a beer and smoking a cigarette. Sinden told Cheevers, who wasn’t injured, to get back on the ice. In jest, John Forestall, the team trainer, painted a stitch mark on his mask. Ever after, any time he was similarly struck,

A touch of sugar might be a sign of prediabetes

Submitted photo

Every year the staff at Vanier and Prince of Wales Y School Age Program run a breakfast program. They make muffins, bagels and juice and sell to the children or even parents in the morning to raise money for the Strong Kids Campaign. This is how much they have raised to date from each location. Fusun Yilmaz runs Vanier Before and After School ($80) and above, Jeanette Bredin runs the Prince of Wales Program ($114).

EMC Lifestyle - Have you been told that you have “a touch of sugar”, or that your blood sugar is “a bit on the high side”? If you are someone with prediabetes, this may be the case. You may be tempted to minimize the importance of this or you may even be tempted to ignore it altogether. But prediabetes is not simply “a touch of sugar”. Prediabetes refers to blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. Approximately six million Canadians have prediabetes. If left untreated it is likely to develop into type 2 diabetes. The good news is that you can use this early warning sign as a way to possibly change your future. You have the opportunity to either delay or perhaps even prevent type 2 diabetes altogether. Research has shown that if you increase your physical activity and lose even a small amount of weight, you can make a difference in your health and wellbeing. Your doctor may even prescribe medication to help you in your efforts to normalize your blood sugar. When planning lifestyle changes, start with small steps. Setting too big a goal can lead to frustration. And remember, you are not alone. Use the support that exists within your community. There are services throughout Lanark, Leeds and Grenville counties, many of which are free and don’t require a physician’s referral. If you are not sure if you have prediabetes, then talk to your doctor. The Canadian Diabetes Association recommends that you have a fasting blood sugar test done at the age of 40 and then every three

years after that. But if you have diabetes risk factors then you should be tested earlier and more frequently. Diabetes risk factors include: - Having a parent, brother or sister with type 2 diabetes; - Being a member of a high-risk population (Aboriginal, Hispanic, Asian, South Asian, or African descent); - Having prediabetes; - Having diabetes complications such as eye, nerve, or kidney damage; - Having heart disease; - Having a history of diabetes during pregnancy (gestational diabetes); - Having high blood pressure or high cholesterol; - Being overweight, especially around your belly. Take the steps to find out if you have prediabetes. And if you do, give yourself the opportunity to have a future that might not include type 2 diabetes. You play an important role in this. We can help. Rideau Valley Diabetes Services offers sessions guided by diabetes educators to support you in your efforts. You can also join us for label reading in a grocery store tour, or learn how to make healthy foods taste great at one of our cooking classes! There is no cost and you do not need a doctor’s referral.
