EMC News – The fourth annual Thousand Islands Writers Festival takes place from Wednesday, Oct 10 to Saturday, Oct. 13 in downtown Brockville. This year’s festival features a Giller winner, four 2012 top ten bestselling novelists, a CBC Canada Reads runnerup, a CBC Bookie winner for best Canadian mystery of 2012, the 2012 People’s Choice Giller winner, and two British Crime Writer Silver Dagger nominees. The festival kicks off on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. with Brian Francis reading at Wall St. United Church. Brian’s first novel, Fruit, was the CBC Canada Reads runner-up to The Book of Negroes in 2009. His latest novel, The Natural Order, about a mother dealing with the death of her adult son and reflecting on her life and decisions she has made, has received good reviews with one reviewer comparing it favourably to the Canadian classic, The Stone Angel by Margaret Laurence. Cost is $10. On Thursday, Oct. 11 the festival shifts to The Carriage Hall at The Brockville Museum. The program begins at 7 p.m. and includes Giller Award winner, Elizabeth Hay and Lilian Nattel. Both authors have seen their latest works enjoy extended stays in the top ten best seller lists in 2012. Nattel’s latest, Web of Angels, explores the reality of people living with DID, Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly called multiple personality disorder) through the story of Sharon Lewis and her fictional Toronto neighbourhood. Alone in the Classroom, Elizabeth Hay’s runaway bestseller novel crosses generations and cuts to the bone of universal truth about love

EMC News - Perfect weather and great conditions greeted the crowd in Gananoque on Sept. 16 as they assembled for the 32nd anniversary Terry Fox Run. “I thought he was crazy,” Betty Fox is quoted as saying about her son, Terry’s, run across Canada. But she supported him every step of the way, and after his death continued to go out and speak to the public about Terry and his dream. Over the years she spoke to nearly half a million students alone, sharing her son’s story and urging her lis-

teners to live and dream big. “Set your goals high and never, ever give up on your dreams” were the words she chose to close every presentation. Communities throughout Canada have been holding annual Terry Fox Runs for more than 30 years to help fulfill his dream of defeating cancer. An unrelenting disease, it comes in many forms and can strike anyone at any age. All funds collected from these events go directly to the Terry Fox Foundation to pay for needed research. Gananoque has been hold-

ing an annual Terry Fox Run since 1988. “We decided to join as a team to do the Terry Fox Run this year,” said Meghan Delaney of Team Freddie. “My dad, Fred, did it every year while he could and felt very strongly about the cause and how it brings the community together, so we’re all together in doing it.” “We’re just happy to be here and participating again in his spirit,” said Elaine Delaney, Fred’s wife. “I know he’s running with us.” Other teams came out to show their support as well.

He did so much for Terry, gave of his time for football, and was an extraordinary member of the community.

But I felt it would be selfish of me to not help promote the Terry Fox Run that I had been working with for so many years. I told Bunny I would do it, and a couple of days later I received my shirt and a beautiful thank you from the Terry Fox organization. Part of it read, ‘Thank you for

your generosity of spirit. Your willingness to identify yourself as someone who has benefitted from the funds raised by Terry Fox is the most powerful and optimistic message we can send to those to show that their support will bring an end to cancer.’ “It was then that I knew what my role was – not to tell people that I had cancer, but to tell people that I’d survived thanks to the research made possible by Terry Fox.� “I want to thank everyone for being here,� said Randall. “It’s important to let everyone know that your dollars really are helping. Every time cancer research lets another patient go into remission, it’s because of the generous donations of everyone out there.� To continue to contribute to the cause, please contact Bunny Randall at 613-382-2591 or go to www.terryfox.org.

Keira has great hair day as she donates to charity EMC News - What do you say when your child walks up to you and calmly announces that she wants to cut her hair and give it to some little girl who doesn’t have any? “Keira came to me about two years ago to tell me (this),� said Sarah Simpson of Seeley’s Bay, Keira’s mother. “I had tears in my eyes when she was a little five-year-old and said, ‘Mum, I want to donate my hair,’ and I cried.� At the beginning of August the Simpsons created a Facebook group and invited all of their friends and family to help reach Keira’s goal of $800-$1,000 to help fund the cost of a wig. “Over the last few weeks we’ve had lots of people in the community and friends and family stop by and give us some money,� said Sarah. “She’s very excited and I’m very nervous. I’m going to miss it. I have a lot of fun braiding her hair and curling it. We’ll find some new fun things to do with it, though.� Keira had 10 or 11 inches cut off, and the family is sending it to Continental Hair in Toronto, a business that makes wigs for children in Canada.

She wanted to be sure that

the wig was paid for as well, so she and her family started raising money to be sure it would happen. They will be sending the money along with the hair to help fund the cost of making the wig. “Mum took a picture of

The night club is only open to youth aged 12 to 19 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., which includes both the performers and the audience with nonalcoholic beverages, bag and coat checks, snacks, trivia quizzes, raffles, prizes and adult supervision. Bohemian Nights volunteers will not tolerate any crude language or undesirable behaviour. There will be a cover charge of $2 to be used for the expenses of operating Bohemian Nights. “We expect to hold it two Friday nights a month,� said Emmanuel Dizwani, youth volunteer crew coordinator, Employment and Education Centre. “It’s like an open mic event with a certain theme to it; it encourages those who would not ordinarily come up on stage. This is a safe place. It’s all about expressing yourself.� The purpose of the Bohemian Nights is a venue to encourage youth to express themselves through musical, artistic or literary pursuits. Dizwani continued to indicate that it is not a contest and it is for people who possess a talent and want to share. It also gives youth an opportunity to practice their art. These Bohemian Nights will be managed by Dizwani and a Youth Advisory Council (YAC) of seven members who are Maddy Mackenzie as president of the group, Alex Bi is vice president of the group, Casey Mckeown, Darby Gilroy is co-host of Bohemian Nights, Jacob Doyle is co-host of Bohemian Nights, Andrew Carroll and Matthew Blair. “Our (Youth Volunteer Crew) is to promote youth volunteerism,� said Dizwani. “We have been around since 1998 and so what we do is to promote youth volunteerism in Brock-

Frontenac Arch Biosphere launches community survey EMC News - With so much going on, the question, “Where do we go from here!” is a pretty big deal. The Frontenac Arch Biosphere Network asks for everyone’s help with that question, and they’ve built an online survey tool for the job.

It’s been 10 years since the Frontenac Arch Biosphere was designated by UNESCO as one of the 16 World Biosphere Reserves in Canada, among nearly 600 worldwide. Coinciding with the 10-year anniversary, the Biosphere Network is beginning R0011510847_0719

to draft its next business plan, for the period of 2013-2017. It’s time to reflect on what has been accomplished, and to chart a course for the years ahead. The survey tool is Survey Monkey. It is simple, easy to use, and anonymous – it allows comments in complete privacy. However, anyone can follow up on the survey, or have their specific thoughts known. If that is the case, there is an optional provision at the end of the survey to enter contact information. Your opinions and your insight into how to best build

sustainable communities is very important. To enter the survey, paste www.fabn.ca into your browser, and click on Survey on the front page. The survey closes Sept. 30. Since UNESCO Biosphere Reserves around the world are committed to sustainable community development, it’s only fitting that the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Network would want the community directly involved in charting its course for the future. It is a volunteer run, non-profit organization, and is guided by business plans which are shaped by community ideas,

values and opinions. The FAB 2013-2017 Business Plan will be written and presented to the community early in the new year. Program committees and volunteers will digest the survey responses, and meet as a group in early November to create lists of recommendations and suggestions for directions. This will inform the Biosphere Network’s Board of Directors on where you and your community see the Frontenac Arch Biosphere in the years ahead. The Frontenac Arch Biosphere Network has been

busy across Leeds-Grenville and Frontenac Counties, building one of Canada’s largest local food networks, assembling the FAB Arts community, founding a Biosphere Trails Council, and forming a link between educators, conservation groups and many others interested in sustainability.

need for men who sing bass and men or women who sing tenor. Prospective members do not need to read music, but they do need to be willing to commit to attending weekly practices and learning their parts. The choir sings a range of interesting music on the nativity theme, from classics to

modern to international. The choir accompanist provides a CD of the music broken down into parts, so each person can practice at home. The choir practices every Monday from Sept. 10 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., except for Thanksgiving Monday. Dress rehearsal is Saturday Dec. 8. Performances are in Spen-

cerville Dec. 9 and Dec. 10. It also sings a sampling of songs at Country Christmas Remembered on December 1. After that, the choir goes dormant until the next year. To join the choir, call 613-658-2916. The first rehearsal took place at the Spencerville United Church on Monday, Sept. 10.

or by asking a Youth Volunteer Crew member, online, via Brockville Bohemian Nights Facebook page or through email, by request. According to Alex Bi (YAC), this group has worked extremely hard, meeting twice a month to discuss their ideas

and hope that the youth will come out. A drop box will be positioned in each school for completed registration performance forms or the form can be emailed to registration.bohemiannights@yahoo.ca. R0011589419_0913

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Every donation counts, CBS says DEAR EDITOR: It could be someone you know undergoing heart surgery who will need up to five units, someone with leukemia who can require eight units a week during treatment, or someone who has been in a car accident that may need as many as 50 units. This is why every donation counts and why the need for blood is ongoing. Canadian Blood Services is a national, not-for-profit charitable organization that manages the blood supply in all provinces and territories outside of Quebec and oversees the country’s OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network. A dedicated team of about 4,800 staff and 17,000 volunteers enable us to operate 41 permanent collection sites and more than 20,000 donor clinics annually. Canadian Blood Services is a non-governmental organization, however, the provincial and

territorial ministers of health provide operational funding, and the federal government, through Health Canada, is responsible for regulating the blood system. For more information, please visit www.blood.ca. The next local blood donor clinic takes place on Monday, Sept. 24, 1:30-3:30 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. at St. Mark’s Parish Hall, 461 Edward St. in Prescott. This clinic is sponsored by the Grenville Fish and Game Club and the Kinsmen Club of Prescott. To book an appointment, call 1-888-2DONATE or visit the website. Thank you again for your support and dedication to the blood system. Jennifer Heale, Community Development Coordinator Canadian Blood Services

EMC Editorial – So here we go again. Very rich professional hockey players locked in a staredown with even richer professional hockey team owners in an ‘effort’ to reach a collective bargaining agreement. The result – a familiar one for National Hockey League fans – a lockout of the players that kicked in at midnight last Saturday. Seven years ago, an entire season and playoffs was wiped out before a new deal – which included the introduction a new salary cap that was to resolve what was supposedly ailing the NHL at the time – was reached. Since that time, the NHL brand has grown steadily across Canada and the United States. The league has a ‘real’ television deal with NBC that actually pays big money, Canada has a seventh franchise back in Winnipeg and overall league revenues continue to grow year after year. So how can there be a problem? The challenge is how to divvy up that embarrassment of riches. The players’ union and ownership differ greatly over which side should get how much of the pie. While some negotiation has taken place, resulting in slightly altered initial offers, the two sides still seem wide apart (although why they can’t stop posturing and simply meet in the middle is beyond most rational minds). Most of the experts don’t expect a year-long lockout this time around. But it’s clear months will pass before any ‘i’s’ are dotted or ‘t’s’ crossed with many players already jumping ship to sign with other leagues in Europe in order to stay sharp. Of course the news isn’t all bad for Canadian hockey fans. Those of us who live in communities where junior hockey resides could care less, really. In Brockville, the Jr. A Braves are perennial championship contenders and 2012-13 should be no different. There’s also no shortage of entertaining Jr. B action with another Brockville team, the Tikis, facing off throughout the fall and winter against area foes Gananoque, South Grenville, Athens, and Westport. And if that’s still not enough, there are the myriad of minor hockey teams to enjoy. Both the minor hockey and girls hockey associations are just about in full swing already. The local rinks are jammed with action throughout the week and all weekend long. And unlike the jacked-up costs of tickets one faces at NHL rinks, this price is definitely right.

Prayers get family through Dirty Thirties EMC Lifestyle - We learned to pray at a very early age. Mother was a firm believer in prayer. Father, not so much. Oh, he was a believer in God, but he often wondered why, when we were doing all the right things we were still poor as church mice. Why we lost several cows when lightning hit the big maple tree on the West hill under which the cows were seeking refuge in a storm, was another question he asked. So other than Grace at the table at meal time, Father pretty well left the praying up to Mother. Although Mother was raised a Catholic, she became a Lutheran when she married Father. Nevertheless, when she felt she needed a special prayer answered, she wasn’t above resorting to her Rosary beads. But she always made it clear to us five children, it wasn’t a case of what you used when praying, it was how of-

ten, and how fervently you did so. So every night before we went to bed, we were marched upstairs to what Emerson irreverently called “the scrunch corner”. That was because we all had to scrunch down around Mother’s knee when she settled into the old rocking chair that sat under the window in the corner of the room. It was in my sister Audrey’s and my bedroom, which was really the upstairs hall, and the corner we prayed in, was hardly big enough to hold all of us. I always tried to get in the middle, because then I could rest my head on Mother’s knee, but Emerson

usually beat me to it. Mother would wait until we had all settled down around her knee, our eyes were closed and our hands were in steeples, then she would begin. Her first prayers were ones we said every night. Exactly the same, word for word. And I wondered back then, if God got bored listening to the same prayers over and over again. When those prayers were finished, we then said special prayers for everything from rain, to good crops, to a bountiful vegetable garden and a good day of selling door to door in Renfrew. Mother never forgot the old woman who lived alone in Renfrew, Granny Hines on the next farm, and the minister’s wife, who Mother thought was a saint! They were all part of our nightly prayers. Of course, we were expected to come up with our own prayers when all the group praying was over. That idea

came to a great and glorious end when Emerson prayed that something evil would befall his very worse enemy at the Northcote School. Mother said, what we would do instead was pray silently to ourselves. I asked her how God would hear us if we didn’t say the prayers out loud. Mother assured me, He would be well aware of my silent prayers. And so began a lifetime of silent praying. Our Lutheran minister certainly didn’t believe in silent prayers I thought back then. In fact, his prayers were so loud, at the time I figured they could hear them in the United Church a stone’s throw away. And I wondered if your prayers had an advantage if you took on the pained look that came across our minister’s face whenever he opened his mouth. I asked my older and much wise sister Audrey if she thought he had sore feet, because not only did

he have a pained look on his face, he had the habit of rocking from one foot to the other. To be honest, I was so intrigued with the minister when he was praying that I couldn’t take my eyes off him, when, in fact, I was supposed to be sitting in the pew ram-rod straight, in deep concentration. Audrey said it had nothing to do with sore feet. It had to do with the sincerity of the message. I had no idea what my sister was getting at, so I just had to sit there, Sunday after Sunday, with my own thoughts. Then it occurred to me that maybe there was something to this silent prayer business. After all, if a whole lot of people were doing it at the same time, that alone should have an impact and greatly impress God. And so praying silently became part of my life. I’m afraid I wasn’t very good at it to start. I was praying for things that I had seen in the

When none of these things came about, I decided I had to change what I was praying for. We also prayed every morning at the Northcote School. Right after Miss Crosby read a verse from the bible, she said the Lord’s Prayer, and we repeated it after her. One day I realized we did a lot of praying out there in Northcote... there were the Graces at every meal, morning prayers at the Northcote School, our nightly prayers around Mother’s knee at night, and the silent prayers each of us were encouraged to offer. I thought back then, with the Depression closed in around us like a tight vice, and every day a struggle for survival, the prayers, in whatever form they were given, were what really got us through the Dirty Thirties.

EMC News - It’s not surprising that people are emotional about their cars, trucks, SUVs and minivans. After all, automakers spend millions every year on advertising to show their products off as if they were catwalk models or exotic beasts or birds rather than mundane examples of personal transportation. We’re led to believe that if we buy or lease the right auto, we’ll be magically whisked to Edenesque locales, our children will love and respect us, and we’ll get the perfect mate: all in the first drive around the block. If you think these emotions subside after a few years of ownership of a set of wheels, you’d be dead wrong. Just imagine a new and much more powerful set of emotions which can erupt when a driver is suddenly faced with an unexpected bill to repair something he or she believed should have lasted longer, or been much cheaper to fix. I’ve had the opportunity to see the best and worst of both consumers and retailers. I’m happy and proud to say that the overwhelming majority of daily automotive interactions have been positive examples of what’s right with the auto industry but there have been a few examples of things gone terribly wrong. I recently received a letter from a consumer with a major case of ‘buyer’s regret’ over a used vehicle with various mechanical and electrical concerns purchased from an area retailer. In this missive, our used car owner referred to the store owner as almost everything but the kitchen sink and most of those terms can’t be used in polite society or on these pages. I’ve always been a fan of the idea that before you put anything in writing in anger; wait a day before mailing it. The speed and ease of email dispatching makes this very crucial. Once it’s in writing and out there, there’s precious little you can do to retract it and in some cases it can lead to legal claims of libel. I’m very understanding about verbal comments delivered in anger at a service counter. Today’s vehicles can be very complex and difficult to understand, even by automotive professionals. It’s no wonder consumers get frustrated and sometimes take their frustrations out on service consultants or managers. Fortunately when most good service people take their jobs, they grow a very thick skin. But in an attempt to provide some guidance, here are a few words to the wise. When you’re faced with a concern regarding any issue at any retailer, try to keep your cool. Raising your voice and blood pressure does nothing for the situation, not to mention your health. It’s helpful in times like these to either deal with another person (preferably

EMC News – “Bless ‘Em All this year is building on the successes we had last year with a five-person troupe review,” said A.J. Benoit. “That show sold out in less than three days. It was held at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #96 in Brockville which only holds about 225.” Benoit continued to say that Brockville Arts Centre executive director Peter Dunn contacted him and asked if the show, Bless ‘Em All could be brought to the Arts Centre this year as he had received several calls, plus there were letters to the editor in local newspapers. Primarily, Benoit, who originally wrote the musical for a cast of 40, downsized it to a five-person troupe for last year’s presentation, a tribute to the veterans and to fit the seating at the Brockville Legion. “I felt compelled to do something to recognize the remaining WWII Veterans,” said Benoit. Benoit made reference to the intention behind the 2011 musical review which was to promote Remembrance and to serve as a ‘thank you’ to the remaining WW II Veterans, letting them know that people do appreciate the sacrifices they made that contributed to freedom. Now he was being asked to go back to his initial written script, to which he is proud to present. “It now features actors and musicians with over 50 people including the production team,” said Benoit. “We have three politicians who make a cameo appearance. Senator Bob Runciman (commanding officer) will make a cameo appearance at the Friday night show, Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown (commanding officer) will be seen on Saturday evening and Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark (commanding officer) will play this part at the Saturday matinee.” With these three gentlemen,

three levels of government, all agreeing to appear on stage in a musical really sends a strong message as to how important this show is and to honour our veterans and to remember our veterans. “Also, our local celebrities who are in the cast are Bruce Wylie (JRFM 104.9) as the quartermaster, the guy who issues the gear to the new recruits,” stated Benoit, “and Terry O’Reilly (Pricedex Software) is the recruiting officer. He has a singing part in the show.” Benoit indicated that the show is totally different from last year as he does not play multiple parts, nor do music director/pianist Mary Ross Comstock or Lee Anne Fredrickson, Ainsleey Worden and Niki Houldcroft, who played the Andrew Sister. There are other cast members to play the part of the troops. “The good news is that the three girls are still in the show and they are the Andrew Sisters,” said Benoit. “The troops are exactly that; we have a cast of troops and they will play all the parts that a typical troop does.” As for Benoit, he will only be the Sergeant Major in the show, no additional roles this time around. “The star of the show is the songs,” offered Benoit. “We, in our roles are the conduits, featuring 27 of the most popular World War II songs. That is the one similarity from last year to this year with all songs being performed by artists from the Brockville and Area Performing Arts Hall of Fame, be it the cast or musicians.” Songs like ‘Bless ‘Em All’, ‘Kiss Me Goodnight Sgt. Major’, ‘We’re Gonna’ Hang Out The Washing on The Seigfried Line’, ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’ and many more will be featured throughout the musical. The quality of this production speaks volumes to the local talent with members com-

Is it better to add a fireplace or a pool? SPRACKLIN’S KITCHEN & BATH CENTRE Several elements can affect the resale value of your home, starting with its surface area, location, and its age. Renovating bathrooms, kitchen, and paintwork are good resale investments, as are as a wide array of other improvements that can increase market value. Among the renovation projects that represent the best return on investment (between 50 and 75 percent), experts recommend replacing the heating system, finishing the basement, adding a fireplace and a garage, and installing solid wood flooring, new doors and windows, and good quality exterior siding. Other projects include replacing the roofing shingles, adding a patio and a central air-conditioning system (25 to

75 percent) and, to a lesser extent, the addition of a home cinema and a fence as well as landscaping and a paved or asphalted driveway (25 to 50 percent). According to the experts, projects that have little effect on the resale value of your home include the addition of a pool or a skylight. Of course, work that is done poorly or in bad taste will negatively affect the potential sales value of your property. Another thing to keep in mind is that if you entrust some of your renovations to a professional, always insist on a written agreement with a clear completion date. Wherever possible, opt for eco-energy solutions that will allow you to sell more quickly and at a higher price.

A new office to work in More and more people work from home these days, but few of them possess a suitable area in which to spend their work day. With this in mind, here are a few tips for creating a stylish and functional home office. Choose a quiet area that is well lit, well ventilated,

and where there aren’t many comings and goings. Ideally it should be in an enclosed room, far from sources of noise such as a television, a child’s bedroom, or the front door. It is important that a home office be independent from the rest of the house; this will help you separate

your professional activities from your private life. Décor is another important element to consider, as a home office requires a special sort of atmosphere. Why not try an increasingly popular trend in home fashions: eco-luxury. Creating this style simply means using re-

cycled materials or objects in order to produce a more upmarket look. Choosing furniture that contains a blend of Plexiglass, good quality leather, and recycled wood is a wonderful way to introduce this kind of element into an office setting. Other ideas include a chair and footrest covered with recycled fabrics, such as denim, to convey a touch of playfulness and dynamism. An office is also a great place to practice eco-design, a trend that promotes the optimization of recycled materials, simplicity, and restraint. A low-clutter philosophy is key, as it will allow you to improve your concentration and work in a more productive manner. Last but not least, be creative when choosing storage: there is no need to spend a lot of money when a simple system of storage rails, boxes, and shelves is all you need.

Unless you have a natural gas barbecue that is connected directly to your home’s fuel supply, the chilly days of late fall signal the end of outdoor cooking. It is also the time to winterize your barbecue properly in order to prolong its life and look. Of all the different components, the grill is the one that deserves the most attention. Removing all traces of food is essential, especially after you have finished cooking the last meal. This is above all a question of hygiene. Use some steel wool or a metal brush with soapy water for cast iron grills. More expensive barbecues are often equipped with stainless steel grills which should be cleaned with a cloth, mild soap, and hot water. If you don’t want to go to a lot of trouble, do a self-clean by turning the burners on high and letting all food residues burn off. The next item to clean is the rubber pipe that connects the valve of the propane tank to the burners. Brushes that have been designed for this job are available at specialized retailers. On the outside of the barbecue, use linseed oil to get rid of any rust on the cover. When all rust is removed, it can be repainted with a heat resistant paint. This retouching not only improves the look of your barbecue, it will also prevent rust from reappearing over the winter while the barbecue is in storage.

The sad moment has come

Closing up the cottage for winter Whether you want to or you have to, fall is usually the time to close down the cottage for the winter. Holiday weekends are spent in town, and a busy fall family schedule means you won’t

have much time to escape to the country any more. Here is a list to help you remember all the things that need to be done before hanging up the cottage key for the winter. First of all, take the time

to clean and store all the outdoor furniture, lawnmower, bikes, and any gardening equipment. If you own some kind of watercraft, find out from the manufacturer if they need any special type of maintenance before they are put into winter storage. Lots of jobs have to be done inside the cottage as well. Empty the fridge and if your cottage is in the woods, ensure that you don’t leave any traces of food for mice to be drawn to. Unplug the fridge and clean it thoroughly, leaving the door ajar. Remove and wash the bedding and then store it in a dry place, such as in plastic storage bins. Lower the heating enough to maintain a minimum temperature of at least 5°C to prevent pipes from freezing. If you live in an area with severe winters, pour about

ity to the water heater. This should then be emptied using a hosepipe connected to the purge control valve. Empty

all the other water pipes by opening the taps fully. After that, all you’ll have to do is purge the water pump.

Putting your garden to bed for the winter With winter fast approaching it is time to say a sad farewell to your garden until next spring. Here are a few jobs to do that will help you to protect your plants from cold winter weather and give yourself a head start next spring. Trees and shrubs

The dead wood on trees and shrubs should be cut back during the fall. If this is done while there are still some leaves on the branches it will be easier to distinguish what needs pruning. Spread mulch at the base of your trees and shrubs to protect the roots, and if there is a chance that animals will gnaw at the bark, wrap the

trunks with metal or plastic trellises or plastic tubes. Protect your trees and shrubs with burlap or geotextile wraps in November. If you want to transplant a tree, the best time for most species is when the leaves have started to change colour. Perennials and annuals Don’t be afraid to divide perennials or plant new va-

R0011380533_0503

rieties in the fall, depending on which hardiness zone you live in. The foliage of existing plants should be pruned and then the plants protected with a layer of mulch. Annuals will have to be brought inside in the fall if you want to keep them over the winter. This is also the time to take

cuttings and collect the seeds of some of your favourite annuals for next spring. Bulbs Many gardeners are never quite sure what to do with bulbs. In fact, some bulbs and tubers cannot be left in the garden over the winter

and have to be lifted from the soil and stored inside in a dark, dry place until it is time to replant them. Fall is, however, the time to plant springflowering bulbs. Don’t hesitate to ask your local garden centre staff for suggestions and tips on which bulbs will need this kind of care.

Township scores $100,000 in EODP funding toward new arena GCFDC also presents $29,475 to Spencerville Mill Foundation for hiring of youth interns By RYLAND COYNE rcoyne@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The opening face-off at the new arena in Cardinal is one skate stride closer. Last Wednesday in the Spencerville council chamber, Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown and the Grenville Community Futures Development Corporation presented $100,000 to the Township of Edwardsburgh-Cardinal. The funding, says mayor Bill Sloan, will be used â&#x20AC;&#x153;to help with the design costsâ&#x20AC;? associated with the proposed new arena complex in Cardinal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great day for the Township of EdwardsburghCardinal,â&#x20AC;? he said at the press conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will have a tremendous impact on the township.â&#x20AC;? The project investment comes out of the Eastern Ontario Development Programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (EODP) Community Innovation Program and is awarded through the GCFDC. Brown, a strong proponent of the EODP and a hockey aficionado, told those gathered at the hall, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of a better thing to announce.â&#x20AC;?

Renata Kimmerly, GCFDC secretary treasurer, said the proposed arena represents the kind of economic development project the corporation

supports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a community-led, partnership-based project that will build community capacity and stimulate opportunities for recreational tourism.â&#x20AC;? With the Request for Proposals due back to the town-

Second announcement At the same meeting, a second EODP grant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this from its Youth Internship Program

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was announced for the Spencerville Mill Foundation. The $29,475 will go toward the hiring of two youth interns â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one focused on the Heritage Fair and another for marketing and project management. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Spencerville Mill is a magnificently restored facility,â&#x20AC;? Brown said, noting it helps the community link the past with its future. With new rental space within the mill, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imperative that that space be used effectively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marketing is a very important aspect of the mill in terms of achieving their goals,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. Board member Frank Noccey was on hand to accept the funding. He says while volunteers remain the backbone of the historic mill, a young person on site is better able to deal with the day-to-day functions, including marketing and booking the growing number of functions taking place there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We certainly appreciate the grant weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting and we will definitely try to make good use of it,â&#x20AC;? he said.

He also took a moment to put a plug in for his upcoming â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hockey Night in LeedsGrenvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, a fundraising hockey game in support of the United Way that features former NHLers, Conservative MPs, and local celebrities. It

ship by Sept. 24, council will aim to review the submissions with an eye to announcing the winning bidder early next month. If all goes according to plan, Sloan says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoped to have the official opening one year from now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big project but we really need it,â&#x20AC;? he said. At a public open house back in June, a number of potential design options and items were discussed. Should the budget allow, such things as a community hall or kitchen would be built into the facility, or year-round ice operation might be considered. One particular option appeals to the mayor, however. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to build in a walking track if costs are not way too high,â&#x20AC;? Sloan said. He says the township has put $45,000 worth of work into the structure to ensure its safety this coming hockey and skating season but says the new rink is long overdue.

All proceeds from sales of the happy $1 cookie will go to support the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation for the purchase of a fetal monitor for the Brockville General Hospital (BGH) Maternal Child department. The Smile Cookies will be available at all Brockville Tim Hortons outlets, and two locations at the BGH Charles Street Site — the cafeteria and Eleanor’s Café. The BGH Maternity department marked 100 years of community service in August 2012.

New resource from Health Unit encourages Leeds, Grenville and Lanark community members to protect their prescriptions EMC News - With so many of Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark community members on prescription medication, it is no wonder that some people find it hard to keep track of all their pills. Starting in October 2012, you will see a new resource when you go to pick up your prescription at the pharmacy called “Protect Your Pin. Protect Your Pills”. Most people have started adopting the habit of protecting their debit or credit card pin numbers, and now the Health Unit wants you to protect your prescriptions too. This resource was created by members of the Community Harm Reduction Steering Committee, and included a pharmacist, local police, a community member and staff from the Health Unit. As seen on the resource, 1 in 6 kids in Grades 7-12 report non-medical use of a prescription drug at least once in the past year and 63% of those kids reported getting the drug from someone at home. So the question is: how can you keep your prescriptions safe? Here are six tips that everyone taking prescription medication should follow: • never speak in public about what prescriptions you are taking, • know how many pills you should have left in each of your prescription bottles,

• store all medications in a place that is safe and secure. Never leave medications out in the open or in places where other can easily access them, like in your medicine cabinet, • never talk with anyone about where in your home you keep your medication, • never share your medication with anyone, even if you think you are on the same prescription, • always take back unused or expired medications to your local pharmacy. Protecting your pills using these tips can help to keep you, your family, and the public safe. If you have any questions about this campaign, please contact Madeleine Ryer, Public Health Nurse, at 613-345-5685 or harmreduction@healthunit.org . You can get more information about prescription drug safety at www.healthunit.org or like the Health Unit Facebook page for important updates. And remember, the Health Unit also helps to promote harm reduction by offering free and confidential services to local injection drug users, where new supplies (needles, sharps containers, and other safer injection equipment) can be obtained and used needles are returned.

Aquatarium: when was the last time BCI Blast Day for grades 7 and 8 anyone visited a castle library? students a success EMC News - They came together and had a blast. About 180 Grades 7 and 8 students attended Brockville Collegiate Institute’s (BCI) BLAST Day for intermediate students on Friday at Commonwealth Field. The students split into teams of eight and competed in games of skill and endurance including a spoon relay with a ping pong ball, a fireman’s carry race, and a toboggan pull. The idea behind the event was to allow intermediate students to meet and enjoy friendly competition to boost school spirit at the new Grades 7-12 high school, said Andrea Wright, a guidance teacher who organized the event. Volunteers from the school’s Grade 11 “ATeam” and the BCI Grade 12 Link Crew program were on hand to act as team leaders and mentors at the event.

“Our main goal for the day was to welcome the Grades 7 and 8 students to BCI and to ease their transition anxieties as they worked together with their classmates and teachers in fun activities,” said Wright. “We also wanted to show them that the high school students are interested in their well-being. It is important that they feel supported in our Grades 7-12 school.” To top the day off, students were also given a hot dog lunch at the field as well as ice cream. Principal Bill Loshaw said the event was a great way to help intermediate students make a connection with BCI. “I’m really proud of the Grade 12 students who have embraced their role on Link Crew as well as the Grade 11 students who are helping to ensure our intermediate students have a great transition,” said Loshaw.

EMC News – The following is part of an ongoing series promoting the Aquatarium, formerly known as the Maritime Discovery Centre. It is scheduled to open next June.

There’s something about castles that sets the imagination afire. The walls, the turrets, the fanciful touches. Who built this? What was it like back then? Are there tunnels? Maybe sliding walls? What secrets are hidden inside? The castle library is always a good place to start your quest for answers and secrets! Stories and history live here amongst the old books, photos and bits and pieces from another age. The Aquatarium’s library is fashioned after one of the River’s most famous castles … Singer Castle* on Dark Island. It has all you’d expect to see in a 100-year-old vintage library from the Gilded age, but it also offers much more. Glass cases on upper shelves display trophy fish and birds from another era. Tucked away amongst the books is an inconspicuous switch that when touched with a penny, causes a secret door to slide open, beckoning

The construction of Singer Castle was completed in 1905. to other discoveries beyond. Comfortable window seats and wing back chairs by the fireplace are the perfect place to browse the book collection, discover more about the incredible history of the region and delight in the thousands of old photographs and maps. For those who prefer more modern tools of discovery, there are electronic books like iPads and 3-dimensional Webcam books, mounted on flexible arms that swing into position. Visitors can find lots to do here, from previewing other RiverQuest partner destinations to using headphones and Audubon Society software to learn to identify birds and even mimic their calls.

On the library’s lower shelves, are boxes with blocks and tiles and interesting things to occupy and delight the youngest visitors. The Aquatarium library is designed to be a comfortable place, a spot for visitors to rest and reflect on their entire experience, and a place in the off-hours for locals to visit and perhaps enjoy a game of Bridge with friends. Visitor experiences Visitors will be introduced to all the things that make up the 1000 Islands region and offered insights to the various lifestyles of a bygone era. This Aquatarium experience will prompt them to visit the

real castle on Dark Island in the Chippewa Bay area of the St. Lawrence River and set the stage for additional learning adventures with other RiverQuest partner sites. * Singer Castle remains unique because it is the only castle on the St. Lawrence River to be completed. The castle remained in the possession of the original Bourne family from its construction in 1905 until the mid-1960s. It was originally known as ‘The Towers’ and was built by self-made millionaire Frederick Bourne as a hunting lodge. The fifth president of the Singer Sewing Machine Company in New York City, Bourne modeled his summer getaway on the English castle described in Sir Walter Scott’s Woodstock. When it comes to Singer Castle and its secret passageways, it’s no wonder that “history” and “mystery” rhyme! The Aquatarium (formerly known as the Maritime Discovery Centre) is a $20 million, 27,000 square foot tourist attraction to be located on Brockville’s waterfront alongside the Tall Ships Landing condominium development. The Aquatarium is a public-private partnership with the City of Brockville.

Young cancer survivor leads Terry Fox Run at Landon Bay By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC News - With the release of a balloon load of wishes, Lansdowne headed into its fourth annual Terry Fox Run at the Landon Bay Centre on the Thousand Islands Parkway on Sunday, Sept. 16. Started by Lisa Marie Gow in 2009, the run gets more participants every year. And the Landon Bay Centre is more than happy to provide a starting point for such a worthy event. This year’s Terry’s Team member was McKenna Modler, a local resident and cancer survivor. At the age of 12, she has an inoperable brain tumour and has undergone 70 chemotherapy treatments, but it hasn’t stopped her from collecting more than $100,000 for cancer research. A shining example of what can happen when you never give up, she finds herself a bit overwhelmed by all the publicity. Her current goal in life is to finish Grade 7 and head into Grade 8. And that looks like it should be easier than expected – her last report told her parents

Lisa Marie Gow, event organizer, chats with McKenna Modler, Terry’s Team member, before the start of the annual Terry Fox Run held at the Landon Bay Centre on Sept. 16.

that her tumour has not only stopped growing, it’s started to shrink. “I feel great to be here,” she said. “It will be nice to just go for a walk for Terry Fox. I wasn’t expecting to be the team member for this year. I feel funny sometimes – I’d like to be here as just me. My fundraising is going pretty well. We’ve got a lot of donations, even after the fundraiser.” “McKenna’s having a hard time dealing with the stardom,” said Scott Modler, McKenna’s dad. “She likes it, but she’s not used to that and just wants to help, she doesn’t feel like she’s a hero or anything important. She’s just being herself – a child that’s trying to make a difference. “The other day we got an e-mail from another 12 yearold girl who cut her hair for cancer and she wants to donate money she collected to McKenna’s Dream, and I thought that was very touching for a child to do. In her last sentence she says she just wants to help, and I think it’s amazing when kids seem to have more compas-

sion than so many adults do when it comes to helping people out. People when they get older seem to make life more complicated, while kids seem to simplify things and understand them better. “I wish I was more like McKenna. She’s outgrown us in some ways, and it’s nice to see. She’s raised over $100,000 now, she’s getting close to $110,000, and it’s still coming in. She’s just a kid who wants to get back to her normal life, play with her friends. The community has been overwhelming in their support of all this. “I haven’t seen people wound up about something like this in a long time. Last time I remember was when I was young and Terry Fox was running through. I remember him being on the news and in all the papers. As a child, it made you feel like you were part of something really, really big, you felt like the whole country was coming together on something and maybe it’s just because McKenna’s my daughter, but to me it See TERRY page 34

feels like everywhere we go, people know her. She was at McDonald’s a couple of weeks ago and somebody recognized her and they all started clapping. It’s really nice to see the community come together for a cause, to see them feel that they’re all part of something that’s so much bigger than themselves.” At 9 a.m., McKenna and her family stood at the head of the line of runners to release a collection of very special balloons into the air. Each one carried the name of a cancer victim, whether still with us as a survivor, someone undergoing treatment, or someone who has lost the battle. “It gets better every year,” said Gow. “We don’t know when it will happen, but we do know that as long as people keep caring, we will win the battle against cancer. Every donation, no matter how big or small, makes a difference, and we thank the community for their terrific support.” Photos by LORRAINE PAYETTE

Starting at SNC offices at 38 Victoria St. in Finch, the tour is free. It’s another method that SNC uses to create awareness and keep watershed residents informed of its environmental work on their behalf, said South Nation Water Quality Coordinator Ronda Boutz. Boutz added there’s no better way to gain an understanding of the role SNC fills in the region than to come out for a first-hand look. She urged those interested to book quickly by calling 877984-2948, ext. 251: “The bus is filling quickly, with remaining seats awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.” She pointed out that the regular spring and fall tours have been gaining in popularity in recent years as public interest in water quality and conservation in general has grown. Several informative stops are planned. While the agenda is a full one, some of the items involve short roadside stops where participants remain on the bus, Boutz explained. For more information, contact Boutz at 877-984-2948, ext. 251.

A Taste of Powwow prepares Gananoque for things to come By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC News “My mother told me, Every part of this earth is sacred to our people. Every pine needle. Every sandy shore. Every mist in the dark woods. Every meadow and humming insect. All are holy in the memory of our people.” - Chief Seattle (1790-1866) When the smoke and thunder clears, everyone has a different idea as to who won or lost the War of 1812. But one group is seldom considered – a group who were here long before the white man ever heard of the Americas or had anything to do with it. From August 24-26, the First Nations held A Taste of Powwow at the corner of King and Main streets in Gananoque. “This is just an idea of what’s to come,” said Lawrence Mitchell. “Next year, the real powwow will take place and everyone is invited to join us.” Part of the 1812 Remember the Raid weekend, yet apart from it at the same time, the Taste of Powwow included numerous vendors as well as cultural demonstrations.

Challenge given and accepted! The test is to see who can control her breath and sustain the note the longest as members of the Women’s Hand Drum group, the Red Road Singers, join in song at A Taste of Powwow, which ran from Aug. 24-26 in Gananoque. Traditional musicians, they performed for a drifting audience as more than a thousand people visited the event over the three-day period. Among these were David Jock on the Akwesasne Mohawk Water Drum helping present a traditional Iroquois song and dance demonstration; Stewart Deline, Tyendinaga Story Teller, enchanting the mind and enriching lives through the telling of stories and history; the Women’s Hand Drum group, the Red Road Singers,

who played and sang; special guest Kerdy Mitcho, Akwesasne Mohawk Artist, demonstrating his art and painting on site; and Jake Thomas, Onondaga Iroquois Nation, internationally acclaimed aboriginal stone carver from Six Nations Territory in Western Ontario. “The women come together to sing, to praise the creator of

all things, and to have a good time,” said a member of the Red Road Singers. “Like music anywhere, it isn’t all about one thing, although it feeds our spirit. Sometimes we sing silly songs, sometimes we have contests and good-natured competition, sometimes we are sad, sometimes happy. But we always try to enjoy each other’s company and to share with others around us.” During one particularly lively number, the lead singer would choose a woman in the circle, approach her, and challenge her to a little contest of breath control, each holding a long, loud, high note until one would have to back down. There was great joy and laughter, and the activity would be repeated, going from woman to woman, to see who would be the best at this. Other songs told stories, some made observers want to dance. As with great music anywhere, it lifted the audience up and carried them away. And this could be said of any of the activities. Whether sampling native foods such as fry bread, bannock, moose stew and corn soup, exploring artworks and crafts, or watching demonstrations of different skills and activities, there was a lot to do and learn.

“The idea is to share, to learn and to have fun,” said Marilyn Paxton. “We want to break down the barriers, make our history and culture better

known to all. This is just a beginning, a taste, and we invite everyone to join us next year when powwow comes to Gananoque in 2013.

Stewart Deline came out for A Taste of Powwow, which ran from Aug. 24-26 in Gananoque. A Tyendinaga story teller, he shared history as well as amusement with a drifting audience as more than a thousand people visited the event over the three day period.

M.T.J.B. More Than Just Babysitting Child Care Centre Inc. is not just a daycare. It’s a safe secure environment where children are treated with respect; with services offered that meet the needs of the children, the parents and the community. Programs offered range from infants, toddlers, preschoolers, nursery, and school aged. M.T.J.B. has about 250 children every day in their care, at various locations, including special needs children. “The Day Nurseries Act mandates how many caregivers for the number of children,” told Shay. “For example, one caregiver for every three infants, one caregiver for five toddlers, one caregiver for eight preschool,

same access to activities that you can walk to, so we have tried to bring the activities to the children.” For the last 10 or 12 years, the centre had brought the children to Brockville for swimming, but the transportation has become too costly. “In Kemptville and Maynard, we have Library Sue and in Kemptville, we have Music Sue, literacy and musical programs are brought to the daycare,” stated Shay. “This summer we offered workshops for our school aged children at Maynard Public School. This was a pilot project with a lady doing pottery every week. We had a gentleman teach guitar or ukulele lessons, a first aid workshop for older children, craft projects, entertainers, Ray’s Reptiles, magician Ry Guy, petting zoo and the community service representatives do visit.” These centres welcome before and after school students.

EMC News – For two performances, Juno award nominee Mary Lambert presented her new compact disc release, Worms & Dirt to the community last weekend. On September 14 she was at W.B. George Centre in Kemptville and the next night at South Grenville District High School, Prescott. Lambert, a children’s performer had her audience, regardless of age, in stitches as they learned some important facts about worms. Facts you didn’t know. “Mary Lambert is very dynamic, very interactive with the children,” said Ruth Shay, creative program director for More Than Just Babysitting Child Care Centre Inc., (M.T.J.B). She has presented songs on safety, family fun and when she came for a performance at Christmas time, she brought up a couple of the dads. One was a snowflake and one was a Christmas tree. Mary also had a grandpa dress up like Santa and the kids come up to sing with her. She’s very interactive and can carry an audience incredibly well.” Lambert will share original, traditional and well-known tunes inviting the audience to sway with the music, toe tap or sing along. According to Christine Joli-Coeur, president, M.T.J.B. board of directors, Mary Lambert is a mom and didn’t think about a singing career. “She used to sing to her kids every night,” said JoliCoeur. People, especially her sister-in-law encouraged her to produce her music and to use her talent to perform. M.T.J.B. is a non-profit organization with charitable status that employs upwards of 40 full-time employees at six sites in Leeds and Grenville. For the two evenings, the community saw local children performing alongside Lambert. This fundraiser was to offset expenses incurred regarding their 25th anniversary. M.T.J.B. also accepted donations towards purchasing tickets for those who might not have been able to afford the cost.

We are all under the Ministry of Education now.” To have a staff that believes in the strength of team-work, who searches and utilizes resources needed to meet everyday challenges, speaks volumes on its own. The teams are trained in child development; as there are Early Child Educators with multiple care givers. Since there has been a huge turnover in the last 25 years at M.T.J.B., the experienced personnel are quick to recognize those children who need enhance services. M.T.J.B. is also a teaching centre for nursing students, Child Youth Workers, and high school co-op students. “We build our care and service around families and their needs,” shared Shay. “Activities are based on the developmental levels of the children. We are all about early learning. We promote routine, social care skills, self care skills, good nutrition, hygiene and fun. There’s a lot of outdoor play with an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon, unless the weather is inclement.” Shay also indicated that the children can play in the sand. “We are a rural day care and we strive to do our best,” she said. “When you are not in the city, you do not have the

Second annual Delta Documentary and Film Festival gets standing ovation By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC Entertainment - Ladies and gentlemen, please stay in line! The next generation of stars will be entering on the red carpet at any moment, and it’s amazing how many of them are from Rideau Islands and Lakes! On Friday, Aug. 24, the Delta Fair Hall was filled to capacity as friends, family and assorted press attended the gala opening of the second annual Delta Documentary and Film Festival. A product of the Rideau Islands and Lakes Theatre School (RILTS), the evening included viewing of 11 documentary and film shorts made by the students from the film camp. And that wasn’t all – for those who attended the following day, the first film from outside of the program was also shown – a National Geographic style documentary following the life of Ben Williams of Portland, Ont. The range of topics was wide and involved anything that interested the different film makers. Imagination ran free, and viewers were treated to such marvels as experiencing a day with the mermaids, the life of Olympian goddesses, even framed criminals. Inanimate objects also got a chance to try their voices as the audience experienced the trials and tribulations of the local playground, or the fears and horrors experienced by different snack foods. Listed films (with descriptions) were: • A Day in the Life of Little Ben (by Ben Williams of Portland, Ontario) – a true

DINING & ENTERTAINMENT FILM From page 38

lypse Survivor (by Zombie Slayers Productions, RILTS Film Camp Session 1) – Mack Bacon, former lab assistant to Dr. Ali Gator, is a known psychopath who was used as a guinea pig in an experiment gone horribly wrong. Sent to the Delta Insane Asylum, he escapes and heads back to seek his revenge on the doctor and all who assisted him. Zoe Coulter, 12, really liked the camp. “I was in the mermaid movie. I learned a lot, and the costumes and makeup were fun. I got to do a lot of stuff I never got to do before.” Sarah Struthers, who just

turned 9, was also in “A Day in the Life of a Mermaid City.” “I really liked being in the movie, but the only thing was I didn’t really come along with the interview sort of thing. It turned out really well, though. I really liked all the stuff. When I saw the little note for the camp in the class, when they came around to my school, I was like ‘Mummy! Mummy! I’m going to make a movie!’” “The kids were amazing,” said Rachel Marks, head of RILTS. “The talent and energy they exhibited has to be seen to be believed, and

they have so much imagination. They all learned a lot about costumes, make up, sets, props, how to take and give direction, working with cameras, and so much more. This was the first year that we threw it open to everyone, and we got a remarkable film from Portland that shows some really advanced filmmaking skills. Next year promises to be even bigger and better.” The program received wide community support, especially from the Criminal Court Community Fund, Delta Amateur Radio Society and Every Kid in Our Communities – Leeds & Grenville. Sup-

port was also brought in from businesses and individuals throughout the area, including those in Westport, Kingston and Brockville. “We want to thank everyone who supported us,” said Marks. “Without their generous help, we could never have made all of this happen. And we’re looking forward to an even bigger and better year ahead.” For more about RILTS, whether summer programs or the upcoming season of school year courses and plays, please go to http://theatreunmasked. ca/ or contact Rachel Marks at 613-928-3457 or rachel@ theatreunmasked.ca.

War of 1812 covered at 2012 Thousand Islands Writers Festival

EMC Events - An exciting evening focused on the War of 1812 is part of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thousand Islands Writers Festival schedule. The evening includes readings and signings by two authors, Dr. David Butters and James Laxer, who have released new books on the conflict. In addition, music will be provided by a local ensemble, which has developed an 1812 era repertoire. The date to remember is Friday Oct. 12 at Brockville

Collegiate Institute auditorium beginning at 7 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a great evening planned,â&#x20AC;? says festival president Doreen Barnes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seemed only appropriate, in a city named for General Sir Isaac Brock, that we devote an evening to the commemoration of that war.â&#x20AC;? The two authors scheduled to appear approach the history of the war from two vastly different perspectives. James Laxerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tecumseh and Brock is a study of the unlikely

friendship between the charismatic Shawnee war chief and leader of the native confederacy and the aristocratic defender of Canada and protector of the British Crown. Dr. David Butters provides a local perspective in his recently released The Insolent Enemy. The book uses a historical fiction approach to deal with the military career of Captain Benjamin Forsyth, who led the American raids on Gananoque in 1812 and Brockville in 1813 and was

one of the early American heroes in the conflict. Adding to the authentic1812 atmosphere will be Fiddlers Plus and their repertoire of 1812 tunes, especially added for the 1812 Commemoration. Tickets for the event are $15. More information can be found at the festival website http://www.tiwfestival. org. Ticket information and requests can be directed to info@tiwfestival.org.

Winery hosts re-opening Harvest Celebration EMC Business - Eagle Point Winery, 337 Escott/ Rockport Road, Mallorytown, officially launched its re-opening by hosting a Harvest Celebration, drawing 400 people to the festivities. Deputy Mayor Heidi Conarroe of Leeds and the 1000 Islands welcomed the new owners, represented by Vice President Li Yan Xiu, to the 1000 Islands. Deputy Mayor Conarroe spoke of the investment that CNCA Cultural Centre Eagle Point is planning for the Mallorytown property, which will result in an increase in employment opportunities. In the spirit of harvest, Eagle Point Winery hosted food drive in support of the local Gananoque Food Bank. Visitors were invited to drop off non-perishable food donations during the month of September. By the end of the day an oak wine barrel was overflowing with donated items. A BBQ Hip of Beef, prepared by Brockville’s The Butcher Shoppe, and Chinese culinary samplings ranging from BBQ pork to rice balls

Deputy Mayor Heidi Conarroe (centre back) and police chief Kai Liu join in the celebration of the re-opening of Eagle Point Winery recently. with red bean paste were offered to those attending, free of charge. Entertainment highlight was a performance of the traditional Lion Dance. “When we spoke with Mr. Li about our plans for a Harvest Celebration at our reopening, he embraced the idea with great enthusiasm. It was then that we grew the festivities into a blend of both Chinese and Canadian traditions. The Lion Dance is a tradition at special celebrations of business openings, weddings

and significant occasions, of which harvest is one,” said Operations Manager Debra Marshall. “We began to refer to our celebration today as East meets West.” “I grew up in a rural community, and I was raised that you share with those in need at harvest. I hope that we will be able to make this food drive an annual event, that it grows each year. As a business, I believe that it is important to be a socially conscious business as well. Throughout Ontario food banks provide

a desperately needed service to our communities, to our neighbours. As individuals, and business persons, it is up to us to step up to the plate and lend a helping hand.” Police Chief Kai Liu, D.M. Heidi Conarroe and Mr. Li cut the ribbon to signify the official opening in the presence of visitors from across Ontario... North Bay, Merrickville, Cornwall, Ottawa, Toronto as well as from the 1000 Islands and Kingston area. Eagle Point Winery staff are in the process of planning a series of events for 2013. For 2012 they will be hosting the TIArts Winter Tour the weekend of Nov. 17, with 15 artists’ work on display. The winery will also be booking private Christmas Wine Tasting parties and hope to launch their Christmas Carol Celebration this year. “It is great to be open again. Mr. Li is very appreciative of each and every person that came out to support our re-opening, as are our entire staff.” Submitted by Eagle Point Winery.

Look who’s NOT talking!

EMC News - Communication skills are critical to your child’s future success in school and in life. Research tells us that children who enter school with delayed speech and language skills are much more likely to struggle with learning to read. We know that the younger we start with speech and language intervention the more difference we can make. Research indicates that approximately 40-50 per cent of children who are late to talk (and who have typical skills in other areas) do not catch up on their own.* Late talkers who use few or no gestures seem to be at greater risk for a language delay that does not resolve itself. Even when late talkers appear to catch up to other children their age, they are still at greater risk for difficulties with reading. If you are concerned about your toddler’s language development, don’t listen to people who tell you to “wait and see”. Consult a speech language pathologist. The earlier a child receives help, the easier it is to catch up, and the better the prognosis. (* Lauren Lowry: Fact or Fiction? The Top 10 Assumptions about Early Speech and Language Development) 12 Month Checklist • Child uses 3 to 5 different words • Child can follow simple instructions; i.e., “Sit down”, “Don’t touch” • Child understands “no,” and simple requests “Where is your ball?” • Child imitates sounds (“Whee!”, “uh-oh!”) and actions (wave, head shake) • Gets attention by looking at your eyes while using sounds, pointing, bringing things to show you • Child tries to sing along with music 18 Month Checklist • Child can follow simple instructions (i.e. Show me the… Give me the…) • Child can point to 3 body parts upon request (i.e. eyes, nose, mouth) • Child understands more words than she can say • Uses at least 20 words consistently; words do not have to be clear i.e., “Mama” or “ba” for “ball” • Child can say “No” • Asks for something by pointing and using sounds or words (points to cookie and says, “num num”) 2 Year Checklist • Uses 100-150 words and combines two to four words in phrases (e.g., “moe tee” for “more cheese,” “Truck go down.”) • Child can follow 2-step instructions: “Go find your teddy and show it to Grandma.” • Child can answer questions correctly with “yes” or “no” • Begins to offer toys to other children and to imitate other children • Uses many different speech sounds at beginning of words (p,b,m,t,d,n,h,w) • Asks “What’s that?” and “Where?” If you are concerned about your child’s speech and language development, call the Language Express Preschool Speech and Language System at 1-888-503-8885. A speech-language assessment can identify your child’s strengths and needs, and can help you prepare your child for success in communicating, reading and writing.

Local artist breaks the rules in new exhibit “Innovation in Fibre – Breaking the Rules” opens at Marianne van Silfhout Gallery EMC Events - St. Lawrence College is pleased to present “Innovation in Fibre – Breaking the Rules”, an exhibit at the Marianne van Silfhout Gallery on the Brockville Campus from Sept.14 to Oct. 27, 2012. The opening reception will take place on Friday, Sept. 14, from 5-7 p.m. This exhibit explores Catharina Breedyk Law’s journey as a fibre artist. She was born in Holland where she learned early needlework skills in school, a tradition that her mother continued once they moved to Canada. Catharina explored her interest in art, taking classes in various art mediums whenever she could.

In the early 1990s, Catharina began quilting, adding new skills to her repertoire. She soon moved on from traditional quilting to incorporating a variety of fibre art techniques. Her in-depth knowledge of dressmaking and other needlework skills allows her to break the rules of traditional quilt making, exploring free motion sewing and abstract with spectacular results. The sculptural texture of quilting gives her pieces great depth and interest. Freemotion embroidery, where she uses her sewing machine needle as a drawing tool, is a favourite quilting method. Beyond that, she continues

to experiment. The options are endless: painting or silkscreening her own fabric; incorporating washers from the hardware store; bobbin work; creating texture with yarn; stenciling; beading. All of these techniques can be seen in the “Madonna” series. To view more of the artist Catharina Breedyk Law’s work, visit www.Catharinablog.blogspot.com. Concurrently on exhibit in the Foyer Gallery is a collection of the best creations of an eclectic group of artisans from

the Ottawa Valley. Included in this group are two potters, Ginette Brown and Jennifer Kelly; a wood turner, Jean-Gilles Francoeur; two lampwork glass bead artists, Grace Edwards and Jocelyn Weidenhaupt, a silversmith; a pair of felt and silk weavers, Dinara and Begaim; an Ukranian egg crafter, Myrosia Humeniuk, who uses both traditional and contemporary designs; a doll maker, Nancy Leigh-Smith; and a metal clay artisan, Virginia Ross.

Farmers’ market hosts silent auction EMC Events – The Brockville Farmers’ Market presents a Silent Auction on Sept. 29, 2012, from 10-11:30 a.m. All proceeds will be divided between Loaves & Fishes and Operation Harvest Sharing (food bank).

The family of Doug Dukelow extends their sincere thanks and appreciation to all who searched and supported them during the time that Doug was missing. Special thanks go to the O.P.P. for their diligent efforts and the Spencerville Agricultural Society, who at their busiest time of year, provided exceptional assistance and thoughtfulness.

I am proud to announce the arrival of my baby sister Abigail Joanna Marie Kollar, weighing in at 8.5 lb (Wow I beat her in the birth weight department), 22 inches long (Ok she beat me there). My mommy and daddy are pretty proud too (Pam and Rick). My baby sister and I are so lucky. We have lots of grandparents and even one great grandmother to spoil us. Welcome Abi to my home, well, ours now I guess. But don’t forget who is the older one. Love your BIG sis Emma

Changes to Cemetery Act will affect Maynard facility, audience told during 81st annual memorial service By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News – On Sunday, Aug. 26, several people gathered at Maynard Cemetery to participate in the 81st annual memorial service of remembrance. It was a very moving service presented by Pastor Aaron Perry of Centennial Road Church along with singers Brian and Sharon Barton, who shared their beautiful voices on this occasion. Maynard Cemetery Inc. chair Scott Hubbard acknowledged the Cemetery Board and thanked all those you contributed to the service and went on to inform people in attendance about the changes taking place as cited in the Cemetery Act. “I’d like to talk about the changes to the Cemetery Act all across Ontario,” said Hubbard. “Major changes are being made and it can be perceived that perhaps they want to close down a lot of the smaller cemeteries.

Part of a 10-year plan, Maynard Cemetery Inc Board has started Phase I of installing columbariums in the cemetery. The plan is to have three circles with each having three columbariums in place. This large well-maintained Cemetery gives the public a choice. Funeral homes will no longer be in the planning or contacting cemeteries for interment.” He went on to say that this will indeed have an impact on the grieving families and the cemeteries.

“We are considered a relatively large cemetery, but nothing compared to the majors. These are privately owned and work for profit. We are an old cemetery that was started by our forefathers and it is becom-

ing harder and harder to maintain. Money is a big issue.” Hubbard continued to say that the larger corporations have funds unlike the Maynard Cemetery, who are a not-for-profit charitable organization which

depends on family members and relatives to sustain it. “We need money, we need input from folks and we need to maintain our heritage,’ stated Hubbard. “Every year I make the plea for money realizing that money is tight, but take a look at this cemetery. You all have family in here and a lot of the families are third, fourth or fifth generations. Those are what we are trying to protect.” He mentioned that the bigger cemeteries only go back a couple of generations and are much easier to maintain. At Maynard Cemetery, graves are being maintained that go back almost 200 years, which is costly. “So what I would like you to do is to talk with your families, talk to your relatives or neighbours who you have loved ones in this cemetery,” said Hubbard. “Let them know that we have charitable status to give income tax receipts. When you give us $1 it becomes $3 or $4 dollars as the only person paid is the groundskeeper. We are all volunteers.” In addition, Hubbard made an appeal asking if anyone would be interested in joining the Maynard Cemetery Board of Directors. Currently there are 10 volunteers with a couple of openings. “We 10 people make the decisions on how to operate the cemetery with a five-year and 10-year plans,” explained Hubbard. “We need input and want to invite those who are interested to join the board. It’s your cemetery and we need help.” Hubbard reviewed some of

the expenses for the past year, including clearing the trees which blew down in the wind storm; the ongoing stone repairs and the problem with bees which required extermination. “The biggest thing we did last year was the columbarium which is Phase I of the 10-year plan,” said Hubbard. “We will be putting in three of these circles with three columbariums on each. I invite you to stop, have a look at it.” With Hubbard’s announcements coming to a close, Pastor Perry started the Scripture Reading on Names Not Forgotten. “With names, it all brings to mind, memories,” said Pastor Perry, “names not easily forgotten. Bartons, Dulmages, Ducluos, Fretwells, Pilots and others; to me they are just a list of names I saw on cemetery stones. I don’t know these names, but you know them because they are not just names to you, they are real people and it’s not easy to say good-bye. It is difficult, very difficult.” The service ended on a positive note with Perry asking people to tell others how they appreciate having them in their lives and to pass on encouraging words. If anyone is interested in becoming a volunteer of the Maynard Cemetery Board or want to donate, please email maynardcemetery@gmail.com for further information. “For 81 years, families, relatives and friends have remembered those who walked before us, let’s continue this tradition,” said Hubbard.

Transition Brockville looks at local impacts of climate change EMC News - As one of the hottest summers on record draws to a close, Transition Brockville holds a discussion on Sunday, Sept. 23, to look at the recent impacts of climate change in our own backyard and around the world. How have our lives been affected by the extraordinary heat and drought of the summer of 2012? Some people may bring up failure of fruit crops and field crops, inability to feed livestock through the coming winter, loss of navigation on local rivers, the tornado in Athens. The local impacts are mirrored globally, as the Arctic sea ice melts faster than in any previous summer, prices of food rise dramatically, electricity grids struggle to maintain power when air conditioning runs continuously, and water supply becomes tenuous. Beyond that, the discussion will turn to ways our community and our families can best react to the changes that have been set in motion. All are welcome to participate in the discussion, noting changes affecting them and how

they are reacting. The Transition Brockville meeting is at 2 p.m., Sept. 23, at the Brockville Public Library’s meeting room. Transition Brockville (TB) was founded by local residents five years ago to provide a nonpartisan forum for sharing information about how each of us, in our daily lives, can help to slow the rate of global warming, reduce our dependence on depleting fossil fuels, and adapt to the impacts of peak oil and climate change. TB builds and sells rain barrels to interested homeowners. It also sponsors a program that allows people to borrow a watt meter from the Brockville Public Library to measure the electricity used by various appliances and electronic equipment in their homes. For more information about Transition Brockville, visit transitionbrockville. com or call Hugh Campbell, 613-345-2712. Meetings from September to June are usually held on the fourth Sunday at the library, a partner with TB in offering these presentations.

Fundraiser supports Alzheimer Society EMC Business - This year’s Alzheimer Society “Coffee Break” fundraising at Bulk Barn runs from Friday, Sept. 7 until World Alzheimer’s Day on Friday, Sept. 21. Bulk Barn has proudly supported the “Coffee Break” program promoting World Alzheimer Day every September since 2005.

EMC News - Boomerang arrived in April 2011 as a befriended stray and the next month she gave birth to four kittens. By August she had completed her motherhood duties and it was time to find her own forever home. Here it is one year later and still she yearns for that home. Boomerang, who is spayed and up to date with her shots, lives in the Quiet Room where she stands out from the other brown tabbies by her very dark stripes. She is a vocal cat who verbalizes a lot, always having something to say. Until recently she had her own cage where she could take refuge, but nowadays Boomerang’s one of the floor cats as she is able to mix well. In fact, at the moment all the Quiet Room cats are floor cats and none have to have a cage; they have bonded harmoniously to form their own sort of family. They love looking out the back window and

‘The Silver Bear’ Jim Portieous comes out of hibernation on back nine to win match

Submitted photo

‘The Silver Bear’ Jim Portieous tees off on the 18th hole at the St. Lawrence University Golf Course recently. Portieous staged a come from behind victory over his arch rival, Doug Gould. This tee shot was the worst shot he hit on the back nine leading him to a double-bogey seven.

EMC Sports - Jim Portieous and his arch rival Doug Gould squared off recently in their second golf match of the year in Canton, N.Y., at the St. Lawrence University Golf Course. Portieous found himself down early in the match before staging a monumental comeback, a comeback fitting for the back nine on Sunday. Portieous actually lived the phrase “it doesn’t start until the back nine on Sunday”. The two-time ‘B’ Flight Club Champion overcame a two stroke deficit from the first nine holes to capture this match and tie the summer challenge at one win apiece. In fact both golfers struggled mightily throughout the first nine holes in trying conditions. Heavy dew and lightning quick greens led to tough scoring conditions early on. Portieous used his past championship-winning experience to manage his game through the tall New York State pine trees that lined most of the fairways on the final nine holes. He shot a very impressive two over par 38 on the final nine holes which included a double bogey seven

on the par five 18th hole. The big lad from the Highland Golf Course showed no mercy on Gould as he let his clubs do the talking, unlike what happened on the first nine holes. “I played really well today on the back nine. I haven’t played here in some 20 years or so,” Portieous stated at his news conference. Gould did all his talking on the front nine and had nothing left to say at his news conference. The BPSN (The Bigger People Sports Network) preempted their regularly scheduled programming to bring their subscribers this important golf match featuring their hero, ‘Jimmy P’. Network executive Chubby Knoneck said it was a no brainer for them to cover this made for TV golf match. So back to the action, Portieous started the back nine with a couple of pars before throwing a dart to within three feet at the par three 12th hole. He birdied that hole but it was the 13th that propelled him to take his game to the next level. Gould drained an impressive 25 foot par putt from the

fringe to gain what he thought would be a big stroke in the match. Portieous was facing a slick 20 foot downhill putt for his own par, he drained that putt and a Tiger Woods fist pump followed. Ladies and Gentleman, the match is on. Portieous’s par set the tone for the rest of the match, he wasn’t going to be denied at this stage of the game. Unfortunately Gould couldn’t raise his game to that next level to compete. Jimmy P’s solid ball striking and strategically placed shots proved to be too much for Gould in the end. Portieous’ steady play forced Gould to play out of character by trying to play too aggressively. When the scores were all tallied up in the end ‘The Silver Bear” won handily by eight strokes. A round of golf that even ‘The Golden Bear’ Jack Nicklaus would have been proud of.
