EMC News – Although members of a Russian delegation have returned home, their time spent in Brockville and Prescott has had a significant impact on both countries. On Thursday, Oct. 4 in the City of Brockville council chambers, acting Brockville mayor Jane Fullarton and Zabaikalsky cultural minister Galina Syrevatka of the Zabaikalsky Region of the Russian Federation signed a cultural and investment partnership agreement between the two cities. With the bond that has been created between the delegates and local hosts, the future benefits for both sides will be a win-win situation. Prior to signing the agreement and after an impressive Brockville overview by city manager Bob Casselman, Syrevatka reciprocated, mentioning the parallels with Canada such as the diverse culture, the preservation of history, tourism, nature, environment and farming. Through a translator Syrevatka said, “We have a significant borderline with China and Mongolia and these countries are interested in the development of tourism as well. Foreign investment is key to bringing prosperous development to the whole area.” She continued to say that what they have seen in Brock-

ville on their visit will be brought to their government for consideration. As for Fullarton, she referred to the similarity of the proposed changes to the Zabaikalsky Region which are basically what the City of Brockville is looking to achieve here. “We are starting with our Aquatarium project which is new for us, as much as they are embarking on a similar project (a tourist attraction),” she said. “I think we were all struck looking at the plans for their tourism project. Fullarton was referring to the Russian venture as being comparable to Upper Canada Village, although Canadian history is rather short compared to theirs. “Certainly the issues of trying to preserve and educate people about our own native people are of similar interest,” added Fullarton. “So in preserving our beautiful land, in terms of strategic plans, they are probably the same as the City of Brockville. I think what we are seeing is that there are more relationships there. Any chance that we get to market our city to visitors we need to take those opportunities. I think we can learn from each other. Knowledge is power.” Fullarton was also surprised

coach at TISS until 2009. He has won various teaching and coaching awards and was inducted to the Brockville and Area Sports Hall of Fame in 2001. The Chamber looks forward to celebrating Hungerford with his family and friends at the Awards of Excellence Gala being held on Thursday, Nov. 8 at the Brockville Memorial Centre.

ready toured Niagara Falls, Toronto, the Ontario Provincial Government (Queen’s Park). They then proceeded to Prescott, possibly museums in Ottawa, then Montreal and Quebec City before returning to Russia. While in Brockville, the Russian delegation went to visit Fulford Academy, the water treatment and waste treatment facilities, and Fulford Place Museum. The participants took a Captain Andy’s cruise on the St. Lawrence River to learn more about the river’s history, went to the Skydeck, talked with Don Ross at the Arch Biosphere, Parks Canada, and toured the St. Lawrence College Performing Arts Department, the Brockville Arts Centre, Shell Canada, Fort Wellington, and more. They were also to discuss tourism investment opportunities, visit the solar parks and industrial parks. “There’s already talk of a hockey exchange,” said economic development director Dave Paul. Prescott will have the 41st Leo Boivin Major Midget AA/ AAA Showcase at the community centre from March 22 to 24, 2013 and a tour package has already been sent to

Russia for consideration. Investments According to Paul, developer Dmitry Mariyskiy is a proposed investor and was their host when the Canadian group, including Paul traveled to Russia. Mariyskiy, through an interpreter, his son, spoke of his desire to purchase land and begin construction of a combination of commercial/ residential building. At this point Mariyskiy showed several architectural sketches on his iPod which would complement existing condominium projects and the Brockville waterfront. One of the drawings had underground parking, a commercial office level, condominiums and an additional vehicle parking level. “You can make a different (outside) look for this building,” said Mariyskiy. “You can make it older or any style you want, as it is only a sample.” On another condominium plan, 90 per cent of the all the windows in the building were directed to the waterfront for a scenic view. “Without the support of the people,” stated Mariyskiy, “I will be unable to start doing something here.”

All systems go for Brockvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 Tall Ships Festival Empire Sandy According to captain Eric Rogers, the Empire Sandy has a rich history starting as rescue and salvage tug, built for World War II. It was steam powered, and carried a crew of about 25 to repair or tow in stricken vessels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the war it was sold to a Canadian interest and went into Lake Superior and towed log booms around,â&#x20AC;? said Rogers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was purchased by my father in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s and converted to a passenger sailing ship. We carry passengers

for three or four hours, having dinners on board, weddings, dancing and other kinds of events. My dad retired in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s and my sister and I bought out the company. We also have other passenger vessels in Toronto. Then in 2001 I purchased the boat exclusively.â&#x20AC;? Built in the United Kingdom and set to sail in 1943, this schooner is 203 feet in length with a gross tonnage of 740 tons with hull speeds of 17 knots. The certified passenger capacity is 275 passengers and can seat 180 below deck comfortably. En route from Montreal,

the Empire Sandy was making her way back to Toronto when it stopped in Brockville. When asked if Rogers would be part of the 2013 Tall Ships Festival, his answer was quick and to the point â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Definitelyâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited about making Brockville a regular stop for us and expanding our business as well,â&#x20AC;? said Rogers. Although Rogers had only planned on stopping off in Brockville for one night, Mother Nature had other plans and the Empire Sandy stayed until a weather system on Lake Ontario cleared.

Once welcomed aboard the Empire Sandy by Captain Eric Rogers (centre), re-enactor commander Raphael Swann (left) listened as City of Brockville director of economic development Dave Paul announced the 2013 Tall Ships Festival plans. The hope is to have seven magnificent Tall Ships grace the St. Lawrence River at Brockville along with other notable antique boats. invite 20 of their classic boats including a â&#x20AC;&#x153;woodieâ&#x20AC;?. These gems of the river will be located on the inner harbour. As well, a First Nations encampment and show has already been firmed up and will be located at Centeen Park. There will be sea shanties, Celtic music, the Food and Wine Festival, opening of the Aquatarium (formerly known as the Maritime Discovery Centre), fireworks to an 1812 symphony including

re-enactments. Also, the Jazz Festival has been asked to join the festivities. Paul indicated that there are 10 other venues in programming which he has not mentioned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just want to get the excitement of a festival that has never been here,â&#x20AC;? said Paul. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is going to really tie in and be compatible to Brockville and its heritage.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Welcome aboard. That was the sentiment as key stakeholders learned about next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tall Ships Festival while on board Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest tall ship, the Empire Sandy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are only 300 tall ships in the world and only 20 in the Great Lakes and our target is to bring seven of these magnificent ships here next June 15 and 16,â&#x20AC;? said Dave Paul, director, economic development, City of Brockville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So what our committee is doing now,â&#x20AC;? continued Paul, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are in the process of deciding and seeing what ships will be coming and which ones we can afford. We will probably have $100,000 in actual monies to bring these tall ships in.â&#x20AC;? The committee is hoping that additional monies will be coming from grants including the Heritage, CDC grants, Celebrate Ontario, corporate fundraising, and admission charge to gain access to the ships using a passport book which can be kept as a memento. One of the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals is to receive the award, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Port of the Year, Tall Ships Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, which is voted on by the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to entertain them like you have never seen before,â&#x20AC;? added Paul. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to have laundry service, fitness and spa passes, wine and dine them, make sure they are entertained and access to internet services.â&#x20AC;? Some of the ships who have shown a key interest are HMS Bounty (Mutiny on the Bounty), Fair Jeanne, Black Jack, The Peacemaker, the Pride of Baltimore, Silva, Sorca, from Norway the Sorlandet and the Unicorn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Unicorn is a special ship with an entire womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crew,â&#x20AC;? said Paul. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So between now and Christmas we will be signing all the contracts for the tall ships.â&#x20AC;? Next June 15 and 16, the tall ships will be moored at Centeen Park, Blockhouse Island and Hardy Park. Paul also mentioned that Jerry Huck connected the committee to the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton to

Child Committee, which, this year, was made up of Jodoin, McInroy, Carolyn Porter, Sherri Hampton and Francine Metcalfe, selection of the winner is done by an independent three-person panel of childcare workers from outside the area. The nomination papers are also submitted to the judges without names, so the selection process is partly blinded and judges make their assessments based solely on the award criteria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all very objective,â&#x20AC;? says Jodoin. Nominees must be accredited and registered childcare workers in the Province of Ontario and must be employed in the childcare sector here in Leeds-Grenville. They are evaluated on five measuresâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; nurturing, professional advancement, programming experience, development and overall impression. This year, one of the people up for the award was actually nominated by four different people entirely independent of one another, and two nominees received three independent nominations each. In addition to de Vries, the nominees for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award included Penny Arthurs, Kim Bauman, Melanie Boisvert, Jeannette Bredin, Karen Brown, Corrie Bunce, Christina Davis, Sarah Duff, Sherrie McColl, Kristin Richards, Connie Schuler, Heather Servage, Mattea Steacy, Amber Trafford and Fusun Yilmaz.

No less can be said for the 15 other nominees for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award or for all the other ECE teachers who congregated in the gym for the announcement. They have all dedicated their careers to taking the best care possible of their communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children and to giving their charges the best start on a healthy and successful life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who we are and what we do,â&#x20AC;? said Jill McInroy, a member of the Week of the Child Committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about.â&#x20AC;? Since 2004, the Week of the Child committee â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all of whose members are employed in the local childcare field â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has been collecting nominations each year from parents, children, colleagues and other professionals and handing out the Teacher of the Year award, and each year, the winner has exemplified what a good ECE teacher should be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we look at all the people who have won the award, there is no question that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all outstanding,â&#x20AC;? says Jodoin. The honour was actually awarded twice during the 1990s, too, but was then shelved for one reason or another before being revived eight years ago.

The annual Child Care Professional Development Day was held at Commonwealth Public School on Oct. 13, in part to recognize the Week of the Child, which is observed every October, but also to give early childhood education (ECE) teachers a chance to confer with and learn from colleagues from throughout Leeds-Grenville. The highlight of the day, however, is the Teacher of the Year award. More than a hundred teachers gathered in the gym to applaud the 16 nominees for this

yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honour and to congratulate the winner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Karly de Vries, from Kemptvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s More than Just Babysitting (MTJB). The nominees were informed a couple of weeks ago that they were in the running for the prestigious award, but none knew who topped the field until it was announced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very exciting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice surprise,â&#x20AC;? said de Vries, wiping back tears as she accepted the award and stood for photos. de Vries graduated five years ago from the Early Childhood Education program at Kingstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s St. Lawrence College and found a position right away with MTJB in Kemptville. In her young career, she has enjoyed working with children of all ages, but is now working in the infant program at MTJB, helping take care of, entertain and nurture all the precious little bundles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I saw that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been selected, I let out a little yippee,â&#x20AC;? said Kathy Jodoin, a member of the Week of the Child Committee and a colleague of de Vriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at MTJB. The award could not have gone to a more deserving teacher, according to Jodoin, who had no idea that de Vries had won the award but was able to predict one thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that if her name was announced it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be long before the tears started to flow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I new she would cry,â&#x20AC;? said Jodoin.

Invisible Children organization brings message to GISS By LORRAINE PAYETTE

Photo by LORRAINE PAYETTE

A gym full of students rise up in solidarity against the LRA at a rally held by Invisible Children at GISS on Thursday, Oct. 11. D.C., on Nov. 17 for “Move DC”. Their goal is to bring international attention to the problem, and perhaps force the hand of the United Nations to send someone to stop Kony. Currently, they are trying to get the interest of Ban Ki Moon, and to have him show up at the rally. Students who wish to participate in person will need to get to Washington at their own expense, but once there, the organization can help them out. “We can help you guys come together as a school,

work with you so you can fundraise and get the money you need to get you there,” said one of the speakers for the organization. “We have supporters from other parts of Canada whom we’re connecting all together.” Students were encouraged to sign petitions, write letters that would be delivered for them to Ban Ki Moon, Tweet, or use any other available means of communication to get him to come out and take action. When the meeting was over, enthusiasm ran wild

EMC News - Invisible Children brought their efforts to Gananoque Intermediate and Secondary School on Oct. 11 in an attempt to generate interest for their cause. The human rights group has been working very hard since 2004 to stop Kony, leader of the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army), who is purported to have kidnapped children throughout a large portion of Central and East Africa, turning the girls into sex slaves and the boys into soldiers, often killing their adult relatives in order to take the children. Santo Aboyi from Uganda spoke to the assembled students about his experiences as one of the Invisible Children of that region. “Imagine that you are born in a war, and grow up and that is the rest of your life,” he said. “Joseph Kony made me stay away from my parents. I lost my relatives, many of my friends, I lost them because of Joseph Kony and his atrocities in northern Uganda.” There wasn’t a sound from the audience as Aboyi spoke quietly and profoundly from his heart about the situation. “Joseph Kony is the world’s worst war criminal,” states a poster created by the Invisible Children organization. It lists statistics of the LRA – more than 26 years of violence; more than 30,000 children abducted; 470,000 people currently displaced across three countries. Yet there seems to be little world interest in taking the necessary steps to stop this man. The students were shown the group’s latest film, “Move”, a sequel to their earlier effort, “Kony 2012”. The goal of the organization is to have Joseph Kony arrested and brought up on charges as a war criminal by the end of 2012. But they know it won’t be easy. In that interest they are recruiting their own army of millennials, young people born at or around the year 2000, to meet in Washington,

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Program aims to help new parents and families DEAR EDITOR: On behalf of the Tri-county area of the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, we would like to acknowledge the efforts of Brenda Kelford in raising awareness in the community with regards to infant communication methods and the message of the ‘Period of PURPLE Crying’, a program targeting new parents and their families. Crying is how babies express their needs and communicate with the people around them. Some babies cry more than others. New information suggests that what used to be called colic is actually a normal part of a baby’s development. All babies go through a period early in life when they cry more than at any other time. Some practitioners refer to this as the period of purple crying. PURPLE is an acronym used to describe baby’s crying. Peak of Crying – babies begin to cry more and more each week, usually the most at two months, and then usually less at three to five months. Unexpected – crying can start and

stop without an obvious cause or reason why. Resists Soothing – no matter what you try, your baby will not stop crying. Pain-Like Face – the crying baby may look like they’re in pain, even though they are not. Long Lasting – crying can last as long as five hours a day or more. Evening – baby’s crying may occur in late afternoon or evenings. Programs exist in some hospitals across Canada to raise awareness of the Period of PURPLE Crying for parents of new babies, in an attempt to lower the risk of Shaken Baby Syndrome.

EMC Editorial - The Canadian Cancer Society estimates 23,700 women in Canada will be diagnosed with and 5,300 women will die from breast cancer, this year alone. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. While one in nine women has a chance of developing this horrid type of cancer only 66 per cent of women ages 50 to 69 are getting mammograms – a life saving test, according to the Cancer Society. More than 62,000 Ontarians helped to kick off this month of awareness during the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s CIBC Run for the Cure at the end of last month bringing in an incredible $13.1 million towards research. That figure was in Ontario alone. Across Canada, the run raised in excess of $30 million. Research is proving to be making a difference as the CCS reports the breast cancer death rate has declined close to 40 per cent since 1986. But more work clearly needs to be done. Women are dying daily and a cure is still yet to be found. In the meantime - this month’s Pink Ribbon Campaign is also looking to raise awareness of local services for women who are living with breast cancer and their families who are supporting them through their journeys. This month is also an effort to get people talking, to stir up some awareness and ultimately raise funds for research into something which is robbing women of their lives. Women between the ages of 50 and 69 are being asked to commit to getting a potential life-saving mammogram every two years. And to also join the ‘Thingamaboob pass it on’ movement. The ‘Thingamaboob’ is a keychain in the shape of average size lumps found by a regular mammogram (which is the size of an apple seed), then down to that of a lump found by a woman doing a self exam at home (the size of a cherry tomato).

Old tilted silo and stone tower in Italy similar according to Emerson

EMC Lifestyle - It all started when Emerson brought the book home from the Renfrew Library. While the rest of us picked story books, mine with pictures, Emerson always wanted a book about buildings. Now, there wasn’t a large choice of books on buildings at the Renfrew library, and that day Emerson found one, all about some huge structure in Italy, it changed his life drastically. Emerson loved buildings. Mother managed somehow to buy him big pads of plain white paper, and he spent hours drawing buildings. We would watch him at the old pine table at night drawing towers of glass. Poor Emerson, we’d say. Who ever heard of glass buildings? Who ever heard of towers made completely of windows and some with elevators going up the outside? And we’d think how odd Emerson was. Not like the rest of us who were content to look through Eatons catalogue or play cars…. no, Emerson drew buildings.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

The book was all about some strange building in Italy… it was called The Tower of Pisa. Emerson was spellbound, not because it was so tall and was built in some strange country, but because it had a lean to it! He sat at the table every night gazing at the Tower of Pisa, and he even drew it on his white sheets of paper! Little did we know at the time what he had in mind. “We have one just like it. Right here on this here farm,” he announced after about three nights of gazing at the pictures in the book. No one paid him any heed. It was the next day….a Saturday it was. Emerson, after his chores had been done, came in to the house and gathered up his sheets of paper

and the book on the Leaning Tower of Pisa and headed outside. “I have something to show you,” he announced to anyone within earshot. Earl and I were the only ones interested and we followed Emerson with his sheets of paper throughout the summer kitchen. He headed right for the silo. There was an old stump beside the silo… I wouldn’t go near it with a ten foot pole because that’s where the chickens got the axe. Emerson knew I hated that part of the barn yard, so he went down the hill a few good paces, and beckoned Earl and me to follow. The silo was in front of us. Emerson held up his pencil and squinted as he leveled it in his eyesight. “See how the silo tilts? Just like that one in Italy. I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if whoever built it, used the same plans as the tower in Italy. And maybe even had a hand in helping building this one here.” While that made perfect sense to me, Earl was much

less impressed. “The one in Italy is made of stone. This here silo is made of old pieces of lumber. And Emerson, you know as well as I do that the reason it’s tilted is because it’s over 100 years old, and was built on a bit of a hill,” Earl said. And besides, he added, “Our great grandfather built the silo when he came from Germany. This here silo has nothing to do with a building in Italy.” Now, as well as liking to draw buildings, Emerson also liked to hold funerals for anything that passed away on the farm. Dead birds found out on the grass, even a frog that was found in a rain barrel at the back of the house, were all subjected to Emerson’s idea of a fitting funeral. Again, Audrey and Everett refused to have any part of Emerson’s idea of a proper burial, but Earl and I being the youngest of the children, were riveted to any crazy scheme our brother had that would add a bit of excitement

to our lives out on that farm in Northcote. I had no idea if Emerson made it up, or if it was actually in the book from the library, but he said funerals were held in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and from now on, any funeral he would be conducting would be in front of our old wood silo. Just like they had in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Well, as luck would have it, a few days later, Mother had ordered Everett to get some chickens to take into her customers in Renfrew. That meant a trip to the stump behind the silo. Emerson decided these poor chickens needed a proper funeral, and we would all meet behind the silo as Everett wielded the axe. I was having no part of it. Earl, who was as squeamish as I was when it came to beheading the chickens, said he had chores to do and the last I saw of Earl he was heading for the barn. I was already getting on an apron in the kitchen and looking for something to

do. Emerson showed his disgust by stomping outside with his papers in hand, heading for the silo, looking for something to bury. There wasn’t a dead bird or any other dead critter in sight and he had to give up on the idea of holding a funeral in front of the silo that day, because Everett said if he came within a country mile of the stump, Emerson could help with the slaughter. Well, Emerson was as squeamish as Earl and I, and the only thing he was interested in burying or holding a funeral for, was something that was already dead. We were all saved from another discussion about future funerals held behind the silo, because like everyone else who borrowed a book from the Renfrew library, Emerson had to take back in a week the book on the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or pay a cent for every day it was overdue. It was the last we heard of the likeness between our old tilted silo and some stone tower in Italy.

Council split in approval of Cardinal arena firm By CONAN de VRIES

Photo by CONAN de VRIES

Edwardsburgh-Cardinal mayor Bill Sloan unveils the architectural renderings of a proposed new arena in Cardinal at a special meeting of council last week. ship also selected two of the seven possible additions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an indoor walking track and provisions for year-round ice operations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which, once added to the base price brought the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total cost up to $6.3 million. The township will also set aside a $150,000 contingency fund to cover any subsequent changes to the design or any unforeseen costs. Occasionally, as part of a design-build project, said Michael Paul, of MHPM Project Managers, new costs will be incurred because of errors or omissions in the original plans, because of issues with the site or due to client requests, and it is for these reasons that contingency funding is set aside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There should be minimal change orders,â&#x20AC;? said Paul, who also sat on the six-person evaluation committee that examined the proposals and made the final decision. The committee was comprised of Paul, his colleague from MHPM, Rebecca Etches, and four members of township staff â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dave Grant, Jason Vezina, Mike Spencer and Richard Bennett. The group met on Oct. 1, with the mayor, deputy mayor and acting CAO Deborah McKinstry present as well, to decide which of the bidders would be building the new arena. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our homework has been done,â&#x20AC;? said councillor Gerry Morrell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this will be better for the community as a whole and for Cardinal in particular.â&#x20AC;? Sayeau was still bothered by the fact that none of the proposals had actually been submitted to elected officials before being reviewed by the evaluation committee, and the first time councillors had seen a rendering of the final design was at the Oct. 9

EMC Events - While the children are trick or treating, a team of volunteers will be collecting donations for the food bank in Gananoque on Oct 31. Volunteers consist of local residents, firefighters, businesses and church members. They will meet at Linklater Public School at 5 p.m. They will be sent out in teams, with the fire trucks behind them. The firefighters will pick up the donations and deliver them to the local food bank. This is the fourth annual food drive and the food bank relies on the success of this event to help many local families who are in need. Everyone is encouraged to get involved. Many more volunteers are needed. Please contact Pastor Colin Cleugh at 613-382-2328 if you can help out. And please be ready to donate when the volunteers stop by.

special meeting. And Sayeau was not alone in his opposition to the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are more people around this table in favour of going ahead with this project than there are in Cardinal,â&#x20AC;? said Councillor Charlie Burrell. Burrell was particularly chagrined by the addition of the indoor walking track, at a cost of $500,000, speculating that too few people would actually use it to justify that kind of expenditure. Both he and Sayeau voted against the motion to approve the awarding of the contract and proceed with the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to vote the way the constituents Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve talked to want me to,â&#x20AC;? said Burrell.

EMC News - A sometimes contentious, months-long decision-making process by the Township of EdwardsburghCardinal culminated last week in a contractor being chosen for the construction of a brand new arena in Cardinal. From among 20 bids submitted after a request for proposals was issued in July, four finalists were selected, and during a special meeting of council on Tuesday, Oct. 9, it was announced that the Ottawa-based firm of Morley Hoppner had been selected. The request for proposals was for a design-build contract, and each bid involved not only construction plans and cost estimates but a vision for the new Cardinal arena. The Morley Hoppner bid met all the technical criteria, cost less than the submissions by the other four finalists â&#x20AC;&#x201C; coming in at $6.3 million â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and offered an eye-catching look. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent design, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very pleased,â&#x20AC;? said deputy mayor John Hunter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks like it will be a great addition to the Cardinal area.â&#x20AC;? A rendering of the exterior of the arena, along with two interior layouts, were unveiled during the meeting and revealed a strikingly modern building adorned with red lettering and several cosmetic features that give it a handsome look. Even councillor Pat Sayeau, long an opponent of the project, agreed that the final design of the building was attractive, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where his praise of the undertaking ended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some serious concerns with this project,â&#x20AC;? he said. Before the councillor could even begin to outline the reasons he thought revamping the old arena was a more reasonable and responsible option than building a new one, he was interrupted by Mayor Bill Sloan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has got nothing to do with the old arena,â&#x20AC;? said Sloan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not having a discussion about the old arena.â&#x20AC;? After a testy exchange with the mayor, Sayeau continued along a different line of questioning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some serious concerns as to where this money is going to be coming from,â&#x20AC;? he said. Each of the four finalists for the arena contract submitted a base price for the design and construction of the building. But along with that, they were asked to provide pricing for nine possible additions to the design â&#x20AC;&#x201C; among them a walking track, community hall, kitchen, gym, gym equipment, year-round ice, office space, splash pad and centre-mounted score clock. The Morley Hoppner base bid was $5.8 million, but the town-

2013 set to be a great year for Thousand Islands Playhouse By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC Entertainment - The dark was filled with the uncertain happy hubbub of expectant voices, shuffling feet, and rustling papers as the audience anxiously awaited the announcement of the new lineup for the 2013 Thousand Islands Playhouse season. But the silence descended fully as Greg Wanless, outgoing artistic director, took the stage. “Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, I’m Ashlie Corcoran…” So much for serious silence. Once again, the theatre stepped back to become what it was always meant to be – a place of happiness, entertainment, and the unexpected. The upcoming season holds a mix of something fun for everyone. Spending its time shifting between comedies, musicals and musical comedies, it has a bright, fresh look to go with its bright, fresh new artistic director. On tap for the season are seven pieces designed to lift the spirits and create a strong new season. First up is “Suds”, described as a “rocking ’60s musical soap opera.” Playing at the Springer Theatre from May 24 - June 22, it is a nostalgic fairytale bringing back all the great music and people of the 1960s. The comedy “Boeing, Boeing” follows on its heels from June 28 - July 27, involving a

“And the word is ‘astertelehoosis’…” Vice Principal Patch puts four “volunteers” through their paces as the audience gets to sample a bit of “The 25th An-

nual Putnam County Spelling Bee”, just one of seven great plays on tap for the upcoming 2013 season at the Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque.

comedy “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” is designed to make sure it will never happen. Show dates are Aug. 2- Aug. 31 at the Springer Theatre, and be prepared to do your best – there could very well be a test at some point during the show as audience members are called onto the stage to see just how well they can spell. “The (Post) Mistress” is a musical that offers a touch of the mystical. Viewed from the position of that fly on the wall, this lady can see through the envelopes to all the news being delivered to every one of her neighbours in the small town she serves. The play runs from Aug. 16 – Sept. 14 at the Firehall Theatre. From Sept. 13 – Oct. 5, the Springer Theatre will be presenting “No Great Mischief”, the story of two adult brothers from Cape Breton attempting to make sense of their lives through the songs and stories of their past. Last up is “Salt Water Moon”, a classic that will be revisited from Oct. 11 – Nov. 2 at the Springer Theatre. Cast yourself back to Newfoundland in 1926 for a story of joy and romance, comedy and nostalgia.

Exciting times “This is a pretty exciting time for the Thousand Islands Playhouse,” said Liz Austin, chair of the Playhouse board. “I look forward to a wonderful 2013 season.” Richard van Dusen made sure everyone was properly thanked, and that they all knew who everyone was. Support is vital to the Playhouse, with revenues from ticket sales making up only 51 per cent of the funding necessary to keep it alive and well. Therefore, donations of time, money and materials from many sources are necessary to make it all happen, and all

patrons and partnerships are greatly appreciated. As a treat, the audience got to taste just a small sample of the fun and excitement upcoming with “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” as four “randomly selected volunteers” made their way to the stage to show off their skills in front of Vice Principal Patch. As with all spelling bees, each contestant asked for the definition of the word that needed spelling, asked then to hear it used in a sentence, and then faced the challenge of spelling the word correctly. And, as with all spelling bees, if you were wrong, you dropped out, and even the last person standing had to spell that last word correctly.

At each performance, audience members will be selected to participate and the games will begin. The list will always be fresh, and no one knows who will come out on top. “Every night that Spelling Bee happens, four audience member volunteers are part of the show,” said Corcoran. “In the half hour in the lobby beforehand you may have a stage manager come up to you and say, ‘Would you mind being a speller tonight?’ It’s really a very structured piece, with music, dance, but then you throw in four audience volunteers and that really turns it on its head.” It looks like the new season is off for a great start, a sustained high through the middle and a fantastic ending. Tickets for the season may be purchased in several different ways. “See 7 allows you to see all seven plays any time you wish. “Pick 5” (limited to the first seven days of each show) allow you to see any five shows throughout the season. And a new choice, “Flex 6”, gives you six tickets which may be purchased and used any way you wish. Surprise visit from the inlaws? Use these tickets to bring them to a show. Or find a date and pick three shows for the two of you to enjoy, or even spread them out and go to one each of six different performances. The choices are yours. “There will be lots of programs next year,” said Corcoran. “We’ll be exploring workshops here, but also in satellite communities. Our education outreach program is going to continue, and there are many great things ahead.” For more information, please go to http:// www.1000islandsplayhouse. com/2013-season/.

Youth and adults come together for Operation Harvest Sharing EMC News - Saturday morning, Oct. 6, at the Brockville Canadian Tire site, eight individuals – parents, teachers, Rotary and EarlyAct members – came together to sort the generous food donations given by the surrounding area, Brockville community and businesses. In a Kriska transport trailer, sorting goods are (left to right) David Yocum, Brian McKinley, Arlene MacDonald, Michelle Peters, Lorraine Falcioni, Austin Yocum, Austin Kennedy and Tyler Weidenaar. Throughout the day, drivers were gathering food bags from area automobile dealerships, grocery stores and any other locations gathering food items. With colder weather around the corner, individuals will be spending money on heating costs rather than food, which means Operation Harvest Sharing Food Bank will be assisting more families. According to the food bank, the 2011 food drive resulted in a total bag count of 1,003 which translated into 162 crates, 37 banana boxes, and 18 large cereal boxes. This year the final tally of boxes and crates is 550 crates and 144 banana boxes. The total weight of the donations was 18,453 lbs.

Water quality restored at school remove nitrates, testing has revealed that levels are .56 milligrams per litre. The ministry nitrates standards allow for up to 10 milligrams per litre. “We’re now within acceptable ministry standards and the students can use the drinking fountains again,” said Jarvo. The school was never officially required by the local health unit to remove its water from service, but out of an abundance of caution for the safety of staff and students the Board erred on the side of caution and began providing bottled water until the situation was addressed.

Hospitality classes at TISS learn about fire prevention EMC News – It may have been Fire Prevention Week but Brockville fire department officials brought their yearround safety message to TISS earlier this month. “Firstly, as a fire prevention officer, I don’t really have a specific week that I focus on fire prevention,” said Brockville fire prevention officer Greg Healy. “Every week to me is Fire Prevention Week. Secondly, the reason we (he along with Brockville chief fire prevention officer Randy Burke) are here, is because you are the hospitality class

Grade 11 class and she has a Grade 9 class and hopefully they will come to see some of this, as we cook/bake commercial food in a domestic setting. Chef Peter Yerdon, the other hospitality class teacher will sit and watch. We also have a Queen’s University student teacher, Wesley Brooks.” Both fire prevention officers felt it would be beneficial for the students to learn about commercial kitchen fire safety and how to correctly use a fire extinguisher.

FIRE From page 14

The chemistry or elements of a fire is heat, fire and oxygen. With any one of these components missing, a fire

will not exist. The students were told that the order of priority in case of a fire is to sound the fire alarm, call the fire department, then assist customers, clients

or individuals out of the area where the fire has started. Normally the location of fire alarms is near exits (doors) to the outside. Healy described the various types of kitchen fires and how to effectively take action to prevent the fire from spreading or to save lives. In addition to the two movies about fire and the fire prevention oral presentation, the stove-top and oven cooking area was also discussed, especially the explanation of how the fixed extinguishing system operates. “It’s a hood system,” said Burke, “with commercial

Thursday, October 25th 8:30am to 3:00pm

cooking equipment that produces grease and vapours that has to have an exhaust system over it. If it has an exhaust system then it must have a suppression system. Each appliance under the hood has to be protected by a nozzle.” Burke went on to explain that inside the hooded area are fusible links that will melt when subjected to extreme heat, separating a cable which releases the chemical to suppress the fire. “There’s also a manual release as well,” added Burke. Using an extinguisher Nearing the end of the fire prevention presentation, the

proper use of fire extinguishers was illustrated with laser fire extinguishers and a fire simulator screen. The students were told that determining the type of fire denotes which extinguisher to use. What type of fire is it? Which extinguisher should I use? There are three basic classes of fires: Class A is ordinary combustibles, Class B is flammable liquids and Class C is electrical equipment and wiring. Each fire extinguisher has directions and a label indicating the purpose of its content, whether it is A, B, or C to ex-

tinguish the fire. The ABC multi-purpose extinguishers can be used on all three classes of fire. Healy told the students to remember the acronym PASS when using a fire extinguisher; Pull the pin, aim the nozzle of the extinguisher, squeeze the activation lever and sweep from side to side at the base of the fire. “The size of the fire and the effect that you initially have when you activate the extinguisher will determine how quickly you are going to sweep and how quickly you may have to advance on that fire,” said Healy.

During Ontario Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 7 to 13, Brockville fire prevention officers visited the hospitality classes at Thousand Islands Secondary School. Student Andrea Liata uses the laser fire extinguisher on the fire-simulated screen to extinguish the fire while Brockville fire prevention officer Greg Healy watches her technique. PASS is the acronym to remember when using a fire extinguisher. Pull the pin, aim the nozzle, squeeze the activation lever and sweep from side to side.

from the world of Bollywood, with tones of pink and orange or blends of fuchsia and soft green. TRIBAL ATMOSPHERE African tribal art no longer consists solely of masks and ebony plates. These days an African dĂŠcor is an understated one that blends the dominant colours of Africa: beige, khaki, ochre, black, and white. Typical African furniture placed on a zebra skin is the central theme of the room, which is then decorated with quality objects such as weapons, musical instruments, terra-cotta, bronzes, and colonial-type wooden furniture. MOROCCAN MAGIC The main elements of a Moroccan-inspired dĂŠcor include mirrors, typical furniture, and lighting. The centrepiece is a North-African style rug. All curves and abstract geometric designs, the Moroccan style is based on vivid colours and hammered copper lamps.


Copper, the latest trend in home decorating season’s copper tones are to be found in designer accessories such as lamps, vases, stools, and mirrors. These objects will blend perfectly with both classic and designer styles. Combined with black or white, the result is a clean and uncluttered look, even if copper inspires memories of medieval times. The effect is a resounding success, even when transposed to the most

modern of styles. To create variations on this copper theme, a wide range of colours are now available in alloys. Coppery metals used in interior architecture and decoration are usually

copper, brasses, or gilts, all of which have been finished by being polished, brushed, sanded, or bead blasted. Consequently, there is an amazing amount of choice ranging from raw copper to a gleam-

ing “steampunk” brass with smooth, gleaming luxurious reds. Either a retro look or a touch of sophistication can be added, depending on the type of finish used. A special polishing cream

should always be used to keep copper at its gleaming best. These products leave a fine protective layer that slows corrosion and allows for longer intervals between cleanings. R0011403762_0517

With the rise in popularity of raw materials and the return of the industrial style in home decorating, we are finding whole new ways to use copper in our homes this year. This reddish metal has shed its old-fashioned image to top the very latest in trends. Don’t rush to the attic to dig out your mother’s copper pots and pans, because this

Oftentimes, buying a home opens up a bottomless pit of opportunities for projects and improvements. While some homeowners engage in different repairs and fix-ups out of necessity, many others like to freshenup their spaces out of personal preference instead of need. But even the most well-intentioned projects can be waylaid if budgets are tight. What many homeowners may not realize is that there are many ways to make updates and changes to a home that do not require a major overhaul or a large price tag. The following are seven projects that won’t break the bank. 1. Move around furniture. You may be able to change the look of a room without spending any money. Interior designers know how to arrange furniture for maximum appeal, but the average homeowner can do it, too. Find a focal point in the room and angle the furniture toward it. Don’t make the focal point the television, however. Try changing the placement of chairs and sofas. Simply moving a curio cabinet from one corner to another may also make a difference. 2. Add lighting. Lighting at different levels in the room can create a vibrant impact. Many homeowners mistakenly put in a couple of table lamps and think that will be adequate. However, properly illuminating a room means varying the lighting to create different moods at different times. Plus, more light can make a room feel more welcoming. 3. Add new pillows or drapes. Changing a few aspects of a room can give it an entirely new look. If you want to add a splash of color but don’t know what to do, think about incorporating some new throw pillows or change the curtains. An accessory here and there in a bright color also can incorporate a new hue without it being overwhelming. 4. Change knobs or small accents. Give a room a new look by focusing on the small details. Switch out cabinet knobs for something updated and modern. Take inventory of wall outlets and light switches and think about selecting new ones that coordinate with your home decor. 5. Use plants. Empty corners or spots you’re not certain how to fill may benSee Update page 19

efit from a plant. Plants are inexpensive ways to add instant color and visual appeal to a room. Plus, having live plants can help improve indoor air by filtering out contaminants. A home with plants also feels more cozy. 6. Hang new wall art. It may be time to look at your photos and artwork and make a few adjustments. Finding new prints to hang could instantly change a room’s ambience. And you needn’t spend a lot of money on professional photography, either. Grab your camera and take a few close-up shots of flowers or take in a landscape scenery. Many of today’s home printers can produce professional-quality prints in minutes.

7. Try a new coat of paint. After you’ve exhausted other avenues, choosing a new paint color may be the new look you desire. Painting is one of the least expensive yet most dramatic methods of changing a home’s interior. With dozens of hues to choose from, and new apps that enable you to take snapshots of things in nature or in your life and match them up to a paint color, you will have scores of opportunities to explore fresh new colors for your home. When you get inspired to make improvements to the home but fear how much it may take out of your wallet, consider inexpensive tricks that can induce a big “wow” factor. FH129440

Create a cozy atmosphere using scent

Many fragrances are flooding the homes market By Lisa Flam, The Associated Press August 22, 2012 There are endless ways to add scent to your home. Home-fragrance products are a $5-billion industry, with candles, diffusers, room sprays and oils everyplace from drug stores to high-end retailers.

Photograph by: Warakorn , Fotolia.com When the lazy days of summer give way to hectic fall schedules, there is nothing like dashing in from the cold and being enveloped by a home filled with delicious smells. There are endless ways to add scent to your home. Home-fragrance

products are a $5-billion industry, with candles, diffusers, room sprays and oils everyplace from drug stores to high-end retailers. There are many do-it-yourself options as well. The idea is to create an inviting, comforting and calming environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a time when people are spending more time at home, and they want that cosy, holiday, warm feeling, and maybe you want that even when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not entertaining you want it on a Tuesday night when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re watching TV,â&#x20AC;? said Jessica Romm, lifestyles editor at Martha Stewart Living. Once comprised mostly of candles and potpourri, the fragrance mar-

Ed M Ed Myers

ket took off in the mid-to late 1990s, with U.S. retail sales hitting a high of $5.3 billion in 2011, according to Karen Doskow of market research firm Kline and Co. Sales last year were up four per cent over 2010, she said. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offerings include candles, room sprays, reed and plug-in diffusers, wax melts, essential oils and old standards like drawer liners and sachets. Many products now offer sophisticated scents and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more decorative as well, Doskow said. Just as there many scents available (Yankee Candle has about 200 candle fragrances), the prices vary greatly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can range from a Renuzit adjustable (air freshener) for 99 cents up to a Jo Malone scented candle thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over $100,â&#x20AC;? Doskow said.

Try to capture the natural smells of the season in a simple way, Romm says. She mentions masculine scents like wood and leather, and the smells of seasonal fruits and vegetables, such as pumpkin, apple, pear and squash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think about meals that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re cooking or things you would have around - fruits of the season or spices you might use,â&#x20AC;? Romm said. In winter, a Christmas tree is great, but you can also introduce the smell of pine or eucalyptus, and spices like clove and cinnamon. A good way to carry fragrance through your home is to use multiple products at once, says Hope Margala Klein of Yankee Candle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We recommend a layered approach, with the candle being the focus,â&#x20AC;? she

said. About an hour before guests arrive, a host might light a candle - or a noflame alternative if kids or pets are an issue - in each of the major rooms, such as the kitchen, dining room and great room, and accent with diffusers. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to add a glow to the bathroom, where you can also display a can of room spray for a burst of fragrance if needed, she recommends. Room is partial to DIY home fragrance, like setting a pot of apple cider with cinnamon or cloves to simmer on the stove, displaying a pretty bowl of cinnamon sticks, or drying sliced apples on parchment paper in the oven on low heat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can serve it just as guests are arriving so that smell fills your home,â&#x20AC;? she said.

A painted wooden floor for a stunning look A painted wooden floor can bring new life to any room, but don’t limit yourself to just one colour. Explore the art of metamorphosis and create a diamond pattern for a unique look.

Your first steps in this renovation project are to clean the floor and then apply a coat of black wood stain. To start creating the pattern, draw a line on the floor with a piece of chalk right across

the centre of the room, running parallel to a straight wall. Decide on the size of your diamond pattern by ensuring that each angle that See Floor page 22

Prescott resident joins Women’s History Day Cross-Border Commemoration of War of 1812 EMC News - Handsacross-the-border will be the order-of-the-day at an introductory workshop on Warof-1812-era domestic arts for women at Ogdensburg’s Dobisky Center Saturday, Nov. 3, starting at 9 a.m. Mardi MacFarlane from Prescott will join Lynette Lundy-Beck from Sackets Harbor, NY and George Cherepon from Star Lake, NY as instructors at Women’s History Day. They will lead workshops on bonnet

and making chatelaine and demonstrations of English country-dance, along with readings from letters and diaries written by the women of the day. “During the bicentennial of the War of 1812, we in St. Lawrence County look forward to sharing our common history with our neighbours in Leeds and Grenville,” said Barbara O’Keefe, President of the Fort La Présentation Association. “For the modest cost of $50, covering lunch,

basic materials and instructors’ honoraria, participants can delve into a corner of our past that spanned the St. Lawrence River.” Under MacFarlane’s guidance, participants will cut, paste and sew simple straw hats, supplied by the workshop, into bonnets. They should bring one-and-a-halfyards of fabric, as well as dried flowers, ribbons, and small decorations to individualize their bonnets, which they will keep.

A chatelaine, explained Lundy-Beck, suspended from the neck or a belt held the tools, such as keys and scissors, a woman may require. Participants should bring items for the chatelaine they will make and take home. George Cherepon and members of the St. Lawrence Valley English CountryDance Club will demonstrate and lead participants in period dances. These dances were popular before and during the war and are mentioned in per-

sonal accounts and Jane Austen novels. “Ladies wishing to build on their dance experience are invited to return to the Dobisky Center at 7 p.m. for an English country-dance that will include more lessons,” said O’Keefe. “Dress is casual, and no partner is necessary. However, a number of experienced dancers will attend in period clothing to assist the new dancers.” Soft-soled shoes are encouraged. Admission is $5.

Women’s History Day has been planned by the Ogdensburg Organizing Committee for the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 whose members are drawn from Forsyth’s Rifles, the Fort La Présentation Association, the Ogdensburg Library and the City of Ogdensburg. Those interested are invited to register soon since space is limited. Registration forms and further information is available at gcherepo@slic. com or 315-848-7736.

Affleckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s retelling of hostage crisis offers fascinating look

My Take BY MARK HASKINS

get them out. Enter Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) a CIA operative who specializes in getting people out of dangerous situations. His plan is to go in as a Canadian film crew looking for exotic locations for a science fiction movie. Tony will go in, get the embassy workers, and then leave through the airport. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad idea, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best bad idea they have. With the help of Hollywood make-up artist John Chambers

(John Goodman), and movie producer Lester Siegel (Alan Arkin) Tony puts together his cover. If his plan is going to work his movie has to look real. Of course making a fake movie in Hollywood is easy. The hard part will be selling it to the Iranians. Ben Affleck is becoming one of my favorite directors. I knew the story of the American hostages in Iran, and I knew how this movie was going to end, and yet I

was still on the edge of my seat for the entire film. Affleck creates tension at every turn, and he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it by throwing in gratuitous action sequences or going over-thetop with American sentiment. He does it by staying true to the history, by focusing on the people involved, and allowing the story to tell itself. If truth be told a lot of this story is about waiting. Characters are waiting to be rescued, waiting to see if they will be caught, waiting for plans to come through, waiting for covers to be developed. Yet there is the constant threat that something will happen. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the tension Affleck seizes on, and it makes for an incredible story. Ben Affleck is as good in

front of the camera as he is behind it. As agent Mendez Affleck isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t playing some action hero, but a real person. Affleck shows tremendous skill and sensitivity as he portrays Mendezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with all his strengths and flaws, and yet still as a hero. Of course Mendez didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it alone and neither does Affleck. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surrounded himself with some incredible actors. John Goodman and Alan Arkin are outstanding. Bryan Cranston gives one of the best performances of his

career as Mendezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boss Jack Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell. Victor Garber is all class as Canadian ambassador Ken Taylor. Scoot McNairy, Kerry Bishe, Tate Donovan, Clea Duvall, Christopher Dunham, and Rory Cochrane, who play the six Americans who evaded capture, give inspiring performances. Argo is a thrilling and captivating story, and Ben Affleck has outdone himself in its re-telling. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

MOVIE: Argo STARRING: Ben Affleck, John Goodman, Alan Arkin, Bryan Cranston, and Victor Garber DIRECTOR: Ben Affleck RATING: 14A EMC Entertainment - Even after knowing the story and knowing how it ended I was still mesmerized by Argo. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a brilliant piece of film making. In 1979 a group of Iranian students, outraged by the actions of the American government, stormed the American embassy and took its staff hostage. During the chaos six Americans escaped to take refuge in the Canadian ambassadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. As the situation grew more desperate the Americans needed a plan to

Solar installation now operational at St. Lawrence College pus and 442 on the Brockville Campus, will generate approximately $230,000 in revenue annually in Kingston and $93,000 in Brockville. The solar panel installation is the largest of its kind at any post-secondary institution in Canada. Large TV dis-

play screens in the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main foyers will show how many tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced through the generation of green power. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great opportunity for St. Lawrence College and its students,â&#x20AC;? said Gordon C.

MacDougall, Interim President and CEO of St. Lawrence College. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are realizing our goal of becoming a leader in the green energy sector, not only in being more sustainable as an institution, but also as a leader in renewable energy regarding the education

and training of workers for green energy jobs.â&#x20AC;? The solar panels allow students in the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Energy Systems Engineering program to gather real-time solar data and learn how the effects of different tilt angles, flat versus sloped rooftops, different

types of inverters and different geographic locations impact solar power generation. This valuable information will be used by the solar industry and will assist students in learning how to optimize solar system design. R0011683866_1018

Motorists reminded to drive carefully near school buses EMC News – Here’s reminder to all motorists to take care around school buses throughout the region. Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO), the transportation consortium for the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) and the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB), is joining other transportation consortiums and school transportation companies across Ontario, in celebrating the importance of school bus safety during School Bus Safety Week.

In Ontario, more than 800,000 children and teenagers ride safely, in more than 18,000 school buses, each day. Studies show that school buses are the safest method for transporting young people – up to 22 times safer than passenger cars. “Ensuring the safety of students as they enter and exit the bus is crucial,” said STEO General Manager and Chief Administrative Officer, Ron Cotnam. “We are training our bus drivers to be cautious, but we need help from parents and motorists to make sure they

stop for school buses, as they load and unload children. No issue is so urgent that motorists cannot wait for a school bus.” The law requires motorists to stop for a school bus anytime it has stopped to load or unload. In Ontario, buses display red flashing lights, and a stop sign is extended from the side of the bus, to alert motorists to stop. Cotnam offers the following tips for students as they

get on and off the bus: • always remain in direct view of the bus driver; • always cross in front of the bus, but only when the bus driver signals it is safe to do so; • always follow the driver’s directions for how to cross the street; • take ten giant steps back from the curb while waiting for the bus, and ten steps away when exiting the bus; • be alert to traffic and look

Meeting speakers back CIP amendments By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News – Proposed amendments to the city’s Downtown Community Improvement Plan received a favourable response at a recent public meeting. “...I support the CIP Program initiatives,” said Heritage Brockville Committee member and citizen Doug Grant. Grant was one of three speakers who encouraged the amendments to the Downtown Community Improvement Plan as discussed at a public meeting in the Council Chamber at City Hall in Brockville, on Tuesday, Oct. 2. The two amendments are incentive programs; the façade improvement program and the residential and/or commercial conversion/rehabilitation grant program. “The primary goal of that plan (Downtown Community Improvement Plan) is to promote and encourage commercial revitalization,” stated director of planning Maureen Pascoe Merkley, “with an ancillary goal to promote residential construction and rehabilitation and conversion of upper floors of a commercial building into residential

Three individuals spoke including Heritage Brockville Committee member and citizen Doug Grant, on Tuesday, Oct. 2 giving their support to the amendments to the Downtown Community Improvement Plan at a public meeting held in Brockville Council Chambers. About two dozen people were in attendance including staff. space.” Pascoe Merkley continued to say that currently there are three programs available;

the TIERR (Tax Increment Equivalent for Rehabilitation and Redevelopment) Program modifications, the Residential/ Commercial Conversion/Rehabilitation Program and the Façade Improvement Grant. The only change to the TIERR program is the minimum construction value has been adjusted from $5,000 to $50,000. “With respect to our Downtown CIP (Community Improvement Plan), Priority Area One is the target of the new programs,” she said. Pascoe Merkley then asked city planner Jonathan Faurschou to explain the Façade Improvement Grant Program. “This is a program that offers 50 per cent of the total cost of the proposed improvements up to $10,000 per property and a value of more than $1,000,” indicated Faurschou. “Some commercial properties that are on corners or have a double façade will get double of the grant money. It’s only available to commercial and mixed commercial/residential property. Residential property is not included in this program.” This is a one-year program wherein applications are only

available February 1 to May 31, with awarding grants by June 30. If the grant requests exceed the funds allowed a point system will be applied. The manager of strategic initiatives Lesley White then spoke about the Residential and/or Commercial Conversion/Rehabilitation (RCCR) Grant Program. “The purpose of the Residential or Commercial Conversion Rehabilitation Grant Program is to increase the occupancy on the upper levels of properties in Priority Area One,” said White. “So what we propose is a grant equal to 50 per cent of the cost for conversion or rehabilitation of the upper stories.” The grant maximum is $20,000 based on the approval by the planning department and again if the grant requests exceed the funds allowed, a point system will be applied. Applications will be received between February 1 and May 31 with the awarding by June 30. These grants are all based on whether city council passes a motion for funding. “Just for clarification, council has already considered the extension of the CIP Program and intends to have

most of the existing programs extended to December 2015,” added Pascoe Merkley. Two other individuals, chair of the Downtown Board Improvement Area Board of Management Wendy Onstein and an Ottawa investor came forward to speak in favour of the proposed amendments to the Downtown Community Improvement Plan. “On behalf of the DBIA Board, I wish to thank everyone who is involved in the development of the two new programs of the CIP,” said Onstein. “We believe that having an attractive CIP will help attract investment which will ensure long-term sustainability of our downtown. We have experienced a drop in our vacancy rate in the past three years which is a positive trend.” Onstein also suggested that the planning department revisit the Heritage Sign Grant with modifications. Although it is still in existence it is not being funded. Next speaker was from Ottawa and intends on purchasing property near the downtown area. This investor and his wife want to move to Brockville and asked that their names not be used due to

ongoing negotiations. “As investors, this encourages us to bring money into Brockville,” said the investor. “We think this is really important. It’s a great initiative.” The property according to the investor would be a poster child or potential candidate to take advantage of this program as the property dates back to 1852, used as officers’ quarters. The concern of this couple has is with regards to the property being outside the Priority Area One which they feel is borderline and should be included. “The property is essentially on the wrong side of the street, so we would be ineligible for these programs,” stated the investor. “We want to bring this property back to its heritage roots. If one wishes to attract and retain high end tenants the way to do that is with investment.” Lastly, city historian Doug Grant added that more monetary resources should be available to the downtown store owners. “I’m a tax payer and I encourage you to use my money,” stated Grant. As the meeting concluded, no one came forth to oppose the proposed amendments.

How to plan the growth of your small business EMC Business - Say you have a successful small business. You have a few employees, and things are going fine. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like many entrepreneurs, you may never take time to sit down and think about your future growth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; how to take your company to the next level in a smart, disciplined way. But growth is an issue many business owners ignore at their peril. In fact, it might just be one of the most important issues facing them as entrepreneurs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you decide not to grow, you may be paving a path to failure,â&#x20AC;? says Patrick Latour,

Senior Vice President, Financing and Consulting at the Business Development Bank of Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grow, your competitors will, and that will put pressure on you.â&#x20AC;? The good news, Latour says, is that business owners can create a road map to guide them and reduce their risk as they grow their enterprise. The road map can help them find more growth opportunities and avoid common mistakes, like failing to delegate responsibility to employees. Need a plan To develop your road map,

start by committing time to outlining a plan for your growth, Latour says. It should include a few important basics: â&#x20AC;˘ a clear picture of your businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current strengths, weaknesses and opportunities, â&#x20AC;˘ a vision for where you want your company to be in the next three to five years, â&#x20AC;˘ an action plan to achieve your vision (Who will do what and by when). Your growth plan could be anything from a rough, informal sketch to a full-blown, highly detailed strategic plan, including everything from a mission

statement to scenario planning and financial forecasts. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vital is getting the key players in your company on the same page, thinking about your future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to grow, you should absolutely have a plan,â&#x20AC;? says Paul Cubbon, who teaches entrepreneurship and innovation at the University of British Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sauder School of Business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Failing to plan is planning to fail.â&#x20AC;? Latour agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The plan doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be pages and pages long. Sometimes the simpler, the better. But if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

have a planned, disciplined approach to growth, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably going to make more mistakes.â&#x20AC;? Regaining control Christopher Moreno is a firm believer in creating a growth planâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and following it with discipline. His event planning and production business, 365 Productions, was growing so quickly in 2011 that he and partner Ben Patience worried it was spinning out of control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were concerned about having too many things on the conveyor belt,â&#x20AC;? Moreno says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We said: Eventually the con-

veyor belt is going to be full, and something is going to fall off the end.â&#x20AC;? The duo decided to embark on a strategic planning exercise. The process helped clarify their opportunities, risks and respective roles in the company. The result: a detailed five-year plan that included financial forecasts for three different growth scenarios. The plan helped them boost sales to an expected $3.2 million this year from $1.8 million in 2010. Submitted by the Business Development Bank of Canada.

Hands Auction Service captures Augusta’s top business award EMC Business - Four toprank businesses made the final list of nominees for the 2012 business of the year award in Augusta Township, and representatives from each were in

attendance when the winner was announced at a special luncheon held last Friday in Maynard. Hands Auction Service Ltd. was named the third-ever recipient of the business of the

year honour, which was first handed out in 2010, and was selected from a list of finalists that also included Elmer’s Construction, Brockville Tractor-Trailer Maintenance and Chevron Construction.

“As far as I’m concerned, all the nominees are winners,” said owner Carrie Hands. Located on County Road 15, just north of Algonquin, Hands Auction Service has been around since its founding in 1975 by Carrie’s late husband, John. With John’s passing in 2000, Carrie has run the business herself, with the help of her two sons, Jason and Matthew, and a staff of seven. Jason accompanied his mother to the podium to accept the award. “It’s a great award to win because it’s Augusta Township,” he said. The awards luncheon was held Oct. 12 at the Grenville Snowmobile Club and was at-

One such success is Mrs. McGarrigle’s – the Merrickville-based purveyor of fine foods and a singular mustard that has made the Mrs. McGarrigle’s name known far beyond Leeds-Grenville.

best it can be,” she said. Starting out in 1993 in Merrickville, and five years before that as a home-based business, Mrs. McGarrigles now occupies a 3,000 square-foot storefront in downtown Merrickville and sells its signature line of gourmet mustards to more than 300 stores and restaurants throughout Canada. “There are a few very simple components to what makes a great business,” said Campbell, citing great product, great service and passion as the key ingredients to business success. Passion in business The passion with which Carrie Hands runs her business is obvious, but so, too, is the passion she has for the community and for giving back to those who have long supported Hands Auction Service Ltd. “I think I can speak for all of us that we are all very proud to be part of the Augusta Township community,” she said. When not working at her Algonquin-area shop, or managing her online auction house, Hands can often be found working in the community. She has served as director and president of the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce and for the Brockville Women’s Network, and does ten or so charity auctions every year for many worthy local causes. But Hands is not the only standout on this year’s list of nominees. The business of the year award would not have been out of place in the hands of any of the other business owners in the running for this year’s honour. Over the course of four decades, Elmer’s Construction, owned by Elmer and Patti Covill, has established itself as the local authority in the sewage business, and the company, which now employs seven full-time and eight part-time See HANDS page 31

REAL ESTATE A weekly guide to Real Estate in the St. Lawrence/1000 Islands & Rideau areas Like Hands, the Covills aren’t shy when it comes to boosting the community, supporting as they do numerous local festivals and, during the ice storm

in 1998, donating the use of the company’s garage to the local fire department. Brockville Tractor-Trailer Maintenance has been in busi-

ness for 26 years and employs 17 people – and counting, as the company continues to expand and enhance its partnership with the International dealership. Owner George Thorne Jr., who took over from his father, and company founder, George Sr., 11 years ago, is also ready to give back to the community when needed, donating regularly to McHappy Days, CHEO, Connect Youth, the Food Bank and various sports teams. Chevron Construction, too,

helps out whenever called upon – donating time and financial assistance to the Rotary Park revitalization project, the Brockville Braves, Special Olympics and numerous other local clubs and events. The largest of the four companies nominated, Chevron employs 25 full-time workers and has established a sterling reputation for quality work over the past 28 years. The company is a one-stop shop for construction services, offering design/ build and general contracting,

as well as construction management and scaffolding. “It was a hard decision. They were all very deserving,” said Wendy Onstein, who was on the committee that selected the winner from among nominees put forward by residents of Augusta Township. The winner of the inaugural business of the year award in 2010 was Finucan’s General Store, and last year, the honour went to Selleck Mechanical.

Busy practice has petsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best interests at heart By RYLAND COYNE rcoyne@perfprint.ca

With the stones removed (foreground), Dr. Cindy Roth (left) prepares to close the incision made in Babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abdomen during a cystotomy procedure at the Brockville Animal Hospital earlier this month. Assisting her is Stephanie Kane.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like to hear the (sound of her) heart beating, it gives us reassurance,â&#x20AC;? Dr. Roth says. With the successful removal of the stones, the incision in her abdomen is stitched closed. Before being reawakened, a final x-ray confirms the bladder is now clear. Baby is set to resume her life free of pain. The Brockville Animal Hospital opened at the Kensington Place back in 1979 by Dr. Jim Hanes. Located at 681 Steward Blvd. since 1987, the busy practice is home to five veterinarians, four veterinary technicians, three veterinary assistants, four receptionists, one administrative assistant, an office manager and one very friendly clinic cat called Tilley â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who loves to play â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fetchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with scrunchy balls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She loves clients and wants them to pet her,â&#x20AC;? says veterinary assistant Megan Nuttall.

EMC News - With a flick of an ear and a gentle growl, Baby awakens from her deep slumber. A glassy-eyed gaze at those around her suggests this must be just another day for this 10 year-old tabby. Yet today is anything but routine. Suffering from a trio of painful stones that had formed in her bladder, the feline has just undergone a successful cystotomy at the Brockville Animal Hospital. Guided expertly by the deft touch of Dr. Cindy Roth, the half-hour procedure is not necessarily that uncommon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for cats as well as dogs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one that pet owners can help avoid with a healthy diet and exercise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Diet does play an important role with a lot of issues,â&#x20AC;? Dr. Roth explains. The tell-tale sign for this particular condition is difficult urination. An earlier xray confirmed the presence of the pebble-sized stones prompting the decision to move ahead with the operation. This day, Dr. Roth is assisted by Registered Vet-

erinary Technician Melissa Kirkby, and Veterinary Assistant Stephanie Kane. Prior to surgery, blood work was performed to ensure the cat was healthy enough to undergo the operation. This is done prior to all surgeries. Earlier in the day, a four year-old dog that was to be spayed was found to be anemic, forcing a delay in the procedure. Blood test results â&#x20AC;&#x153;may be nothing, but you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to take chances,â&#x20AC;? Kirkby explains. The operating room, though small, features an array of state-of-the-art monitoring equipment that could rival those in a regular hospital. After being sedated for the surgery, the animal is intubated to ensure she receives the proper amount of anesthetic throughout the procedure. Kirkby keeps close watch on the monitors to ensure Babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blood pressure and oxygen saturation level stays at a healthy level. The steady thump, thump from the Doppler machine assures everyone in the room that her heart is still beating strong.

house Wednesday, Oct. 3 during which members of the public were invited in for a guided tour, to view a mock surgery, and see the type of equipment used by staff each day. The practice has its own laboratory that features some of the very latest testing equipment; there’s a pet pharmacy on site, several examination rooms as well as kennel runs. “Our team will finish the week off with going into local schools to educate the students on pet safety, pet care and present career information to the older students,” noted office manager Leslie Sloan in an email to the EMC.

Following the theme ‘Preventative Veterinary Care…for the health of it!’, they also hosted St. John Ambulance pet safety courses Sept. 27 and Oct. 4. Coming up Nov. 3, the Brockville Animal Hospital will host a canine blood donor clinic. A two-part St. John first aid pet course returns Nov. 7 and 14. And Starting Nov 1, the practice moves into its Trim for Tins campaign “where a pet can get a free nail trim when their owner brings a nonperishable food item that we donate to Harvest Sharing,” Sloan explains. “It is an exciting time of the year

Some of the Brockville Animal Hospital staff and their cuddly friends include (left to right) Dr. Cindy Roth (with Iggy), veterinary assistant Megan Nuttall (with Tilley), veterinary assistant Stephanie Kane and registered veterinary technician Melissa Kirkby (with Squiggy). “You never know what you’re going to get.” As one would expect, the animal hospital also deals with death on a frequent basis. “The end-of-life discussions are very important,” Dr. Roth explains. “It’s a very sensitive subject.”

Pet owners, who may be observing a diminishing quality of life, often ask how they are supposed to know when it’s time. The decision is not ever taken lightly and there are signs – lack of appetite, cleanliness, less play time, among others.

“People don’t want them to suffer,” Kirkby explains. “They want them to die with dignity.” Animal Health Week During Animal Health Week Sept. 30 - Oct. 6, the facility hosted a number of events across the region including an open

Friday), she explains. While the most common of these – spaying and neutering – may be considered routine by most, Dr. Roth explains how even these surgeries can have complications. “There are lots of opportunities to not suture something (veins, arteries) tight enough” which could lead to bleeding, she says. “We call it routine but it’s really not.” Today, Smokey, a six month-old kitten brought in to be spayed, sails through the operation with flying colours. Like Baby, she wakes up a little groggy, maybe even a touch grumpy, but better off for her visit. Dr. Roth says the veterinarians deal with all sorts of conditions – many involving dogs ingesting something they shouldn’t. Socks, toys, soothers, they’ve seen and removed just about anything one could imagine. “We wound up finding something (a particular child’s toy) the people didn’t know had been missing,” she says. A good part of what makes the job so interesting is how different each day plays out, Kirkby adds.

unless you make them wait for authorization and they must reassemble your vehicle to make room for other work. If you authorize the work or repairs by phone, the shop is required to record the details of the authorization in writing. If a repair shop asks you to sign a blank work order, don’t do it. If you sign, the repairer may argue you’re liable for whatever work it chooses to carry out, and it will be difficult to prove you didn’t authorize it.” I would suggest our Caddy owner make arrangements and sit down and discuss this situation with the service manager at the shop he visited, and if necessary, the store owner. If he wasn’t informed of the estimating and diagnostic charges up front, he may have a good case to request a refund.

A good friend at the Ministry of Transportation is always happy to fill my email inbox with interesting studies, press releases, and reports. One that came recently provided some surprising information. A recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine (Sept 27, 2012) detailed a statistical analysis of Ontario motor vehicle collisions and related injuries between April of 2006 and the end of 2009. They concentrated on drivers who had received a warning from their doctor detailing a medical condition that may have affected their driving ability. The study revealed a 45 per cent decrease in the rate of collisions that required a visit to a hospital emergency department per 1,000 drivers. One of the conclusions of this study was that society in general and the province saved $7M annually in healthcare costs, property damage, and lost work-time, as well as premature morbidity and mortality as a result of these medical warnings. What was a surprise to me was that since 2006 physicians in Ontario have been paid $36 for every warning they issued to a patient regarding a potential ‘unfit-to-drive’ medical condition that entailed a followup by letter to the Ministry of Transportation. Approximately 10-30 per cent of the 100,000 warnings that were issued resulted in temporary or permanent license suspensions. The study also noted a 25 per

EMC Lifestyle - First I need to start off with an apology for not labeling the picture I sent in with the Oct. 4 piece on a restored British classic car. The shot of the curious geek with his head under the hood was actually me, not the vehicle’s owner Mike Giroux. For the record, Mike is much better and younger looking than me. “Dear Brian: I took my 2006 Cadillac DTS into a local national chain garage recently as I had a free oil change coupon. I also mentioned that there was a noise coming from the engine, which actually sounded as if I had winter tires on (that sort of noise), but I didn’t (have winter tires on!). I saw the mechanic take it for a spin. When the oil change had been completed, and I went to pay my bill, there was a charge of $99 for a General Diagnostic. I did not request this, so should I have to pay for it? They then went on to tell me that I needed new Shocks & Struts...cost $915. Replace Wheel Bearing front, one side...$399. I declined to have them do this work, and went to my usual mechanic, who didn’t think anything they were going to do would affect the noise I was hearing. He will tell me what he thinks is the problem tomorrow! Why should I have to pay for the Diagnostic charge when I hadn’t asked for it? Did they do it to find out what the problem was? What do they have mechanics for? Aren’t they the ones to tell me?!” Very frustrated! John When taking your vehicle into a repair shop you haven’t visited before, it’s good to first ask a few questions to avoid this type of invoice surprise. First, check what you’re signing when you’re presented with a work order. If you ask for a noise to be checked out, or for anything else for that matter, make sure your request is accurately indicated on the work order. Signing a work order without reading or understanding it can be a lot like signing a blank cheque. The Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services website provides some great advice for these situations: “The repair shop may charge for an estimate — if you are told in advance that a fee will apply and what the amount will be. The fee can include the cost of diagnostic time plus the cost of reassembling the vehicle. It can also include the cost of parts damaged and replaced while carrying out the estimate. However, the repair shop can’t charge for an estimate if you go ahead with the work,

Tips, trivia and why King Louis XV liked cold soup EMC Lifestyle - Occasionally instead of passing along a recipe, I write a column with kitchen shortcuts and helpful tips. If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come across some interesting bit of food trivia, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll include that as well. This week, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take you from graham wafer crusts to King Louis XV of France. When you need to press a graham wafer crust into a springform pan, sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to find just the right tool. If you use your fingertips, they get greasy and covered with crumbs. A fork doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

get right to the edge of the pan, and it flattens only a small area at a time. One of the best tools is a round potato masher, the kind that has square holes, not curved lines of wire. The curved shape fits the edges of

the springform pan, and the large size covers a bigger area with each impression. Another handy item to keep on hand in your kitchen is a box of thin latex gloves, the kind that food preparers use in commercial establishments. Put on a pair of gloves whenever youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re handling a messy mixture in the kitchen. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pressing crumbs into a springform pan, shaping meatballs, working with dough or mixing meatloaf, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let you get right in there with your hands, yet keep them clean.

A word of caution:, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t re-use gloves that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve used on raw meat, fish or poultry. Throw them out to avoid possible contamination of other foods. To tenderize beef stew, add one or two tomatoes to the pot. Tomatoes contain an acid that breaks down meat and tenderizes it naturally. If your glass or plastic cutting board slides across the kitchen counter when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using it, dampen a dish cloth, and lay it on the counter under the cutting board. This also works on the large plastic sheets when rolling out pastry on them. If you have one of the large rectangular glass or plastic cutting board, measure its length and width. Many are just the right size for rolling out dough into a rectangle for making pastries such as cinnamon rolls. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also handy for making French bread when the dough needs to be shaped by rolling it back and forth on a flat surface. Which brings us to King Louis XV of France. According to one story, he was so afraid of being poisoned that he had several servants taste his food before he ate it. By the time the soup reached him, it was cold. He liked it so much that he had it served cold from then on. That (supposedly) is why the creamy French potato soup, vichysoisse, is always served chilled.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19 AT 8PM

EMC Entertainment Though most familiar to more than 750,000 weekly listeners as the host of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Debatersâ&#x20AC;? on CBC Radio, it is as an international headline stand-up comedian where Steve Patterson truly shines. Awakening to the idea of stand-up as a full-time career in 1997, when he lost his job as a copywriter for making an ad about an amusement park â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;too amusingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, Patterson has since performed across Canada, as well as Australia, Ireland, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the U.S. and even the United Arab Emirates (the crowd spoke English ... Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a magician!). By 2010, steady accolades for his work garnered him a third invitation to perform on the Just For Laughs prestigious televised gala. Considered to be the highlight of the show by critics and audience alike, Pattersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance prompted the legendary comedy icon and gala host, Steve Martin, to proclaim: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d known he was going to be THAT good, I would have cancelled him.â&#x20AC;? The comedy industry finally formally agreed with Martin, when Patterson was named Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Male Stand-Up Comic at the most recent Canadian Comedy

Awards, having been nominated twice previously. Most recently, Patterson has been seen in theatres across Canada hosting the Just For Laughs tour: British edition (despite his being Irish), headlining Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storied Massey Hall on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve and performing for such high profile organizations as the Canadian Olympic Committee and the Gemini Awards. This fall Patterson hits the road with his 90-minute one man show - â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Is Not Debatable!â&#x20AC;? with a stop scheduled for Nov. 2 at the Brockville Arts Centre. With his hallmark gift for capturing a funny turn of phrase, and the golden opportunity to express all the opinions he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to voice as the moderator of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Debatersâ&#x20AC;?, Patterson will no doubt continue to build on his reputation for turning a crowd of strangers into a roomful of laughing co-conspirators! Reserved seating tickets for Steve Patterson - â&#x20AC;&#x153;This Is Not Debatable!â&#x20AC;? are available at the BAC box office. Call 613-342-7122 or 877-3427122.

The great George Szell personally invited Han-Gorski to an important post in the first violin section with the Cleveland Orchestra. Additionally, he held Concertmaster posts with the Metropolitan Opera National Company, The Syracuse Symphony Orchestra and the Minnesota Orchestra. In 1976 he was appointed Concertmaster with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, a position he held for twenty-five years. In the course of those years, he was frequently invited as a guest Concertmaster by various orchestras in Germany, Italy and Mexico City, as well as presenting Master Classes on three continents. As a soloist, Han-Gorski has performed in major cities throughout the world receiving great acclaim from the press for his effortless virtuosity and profound musicianship. In 1986 he founded the ensemble â&#x20AC;&#x153;Virtuosi di Vienna,â&#x20AC;? with which he has toured extensively, internationally. In recent years he has increasingly appeared in the double capacity of conductor/soloist. Mr. Han-Gorski lays great emphasis on music education

EMC Entertainment - In this their 65th year of operation, Brockville Concert Association is proud to present violin virtuoso Adam Han-Gorski at the Arts Centre on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 28 at 2:30 p.m. Mr. Han-Gorski started his prodigious international career at the age of 8 when he gave his first solo performance with the Silesian Philharmonic. At 14, he was the youngest participant, and a prize winner, at the International Music Competition in Warsaw. The legendary Jascha Heifetz, having heard Han-Gorski in Paris, invited him to take part in his Master Class at the University of Southern California. This included participation in a famous series on educational television, still available today on VHS cassettes. He made his American debut by playing with the late cellist Steven Kates (a winner of the Tchaikovsky Competition) in a concert, which also included Jascha Heifetz and Gregor Piatigorski as soloists! At the end of four and a half years of study with the Master, Heifetz presented him with an eighteenth century Italian violin!

Gananoque comes out strong for Jim “Gotcha Covered” Boltin memorial By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC News - Jim Boltin was there at Gananoque Intermediate and Secondary School on Oct. 6 to join in on his memorial. He couldn’t be seen, but he could be felt and not a single person in the auditorium would say otherwise. “We are all here for a

reason, to remember a terrific person,” said Trish Byrne. “Jim Boltin was a businessman, a family man, a husband, a Lions member, a business partner, a traveller, a football player, a person who dedicated time and made a difference in many lives and wanted nothing in return.

“You found him out on the football field on his sled telling the boys ‘Take me to Miami!’ or teaching a new skill or having a heart to heart with his boys and cooking onions on the barbecue. If he wasn’t there he was organizing a pumpkin fest, car show, golf tournament or Ribfest. If he was on R0011684400_1018

Cheers to you, Jim.” And give back they did.

his beloved team. And everyone had something to say. “He was great for me,” said George Funell. “He was a wonderful man who did a lot for the community and our school,” said Jason Henderson. “Our goal is to raise enough money to have a room named after him at the Kingston General Hospital. We’re doing everything we can to fulfill his goal to support them as best we can.”

A lot of the people Boltin had helped over the years were called on to help out, and they jumped at the chance. Alyn MacCauley donated NHL items for the silent auction, Jayna Hefford from the Olympics provided related gear, Jeff Callery came out to play, everyone whose life had been touched by the man were ready to come and do whatever they could in support.

“We’ll keep doing fundraisers until we meet our goal,” said Henderson. “TIAP, with permission from the UCDSB, will rename the football field the Jim Boltin Field. We’re happy to create a permanent tribute to such a community oriented individual.” “My dad would have loved this,” said Jamie Boltin, Jim’s daughter. “He really loved the Trojans and Gananoque, and wanted to help the KGH all he could. This would have made him very proud.”

Great music for the evening was provided by many local artists including Jeff Callery, Collin Slack, Tim Hallman and Cliff Edwards. And the party just got hotter and better as the evening went on. “What can I say?” added Geoff Keyes. “I was always looking for that seal of approval, and there was nothing better than the Jimmy Boltin seal of approval. He didn’t play favourites, he treated everyone well. A toast to you, Jim – ‘Gotcha covered!’”

St. Joseph’s SK and Grade 1 students learn about their town By LORRAINE PAYETTE

But maybe the most exciting part of the day came when they went to Town Hall and got a chance to chat with Mayor Erika Demchuk and tour the building. “I think it’s fantastic when the young people come to the Town Hall to enjoy the history of it and to meet the mayor,” said Demchuk. “They’re always so excited and they always make me feel more important than I really am. Sometimes they ask such wonderful questions, like ‘Do I live here?’ It’s so wonderful when they come and take part in what’s going on here at the Town Hall. It’s a good civic

They’re always very happy to find out what’s going on here and how their town is run.” The students had a chance to explore the entire building, which still keeps part of its original installations from when it was built 182 years ago. In the downstairs meeting room they saw the old oven built into the wall, as well as the passage way to send food to the dining room across the hall (the dining room is now an office, and that passage a reception window). “A family by the name of John and Henrietta Macdonald lived here, and they had six children,” Cindy, the tour guide, told them. And, being built in 1830, those children didn’t go to a public school in

the neighbourhood. Instead, they climbed the steep and treacherous stairs to the attic where they were schooled by professionals brought in by their parents. The schoolroom was a decided treat, but the real favourite was the old official boardroom where council had sat in chambers and decided town policies. There, the students got a chance to sit with the mayor and get a feel of what it would be like to run Gananoque themselves. When it was over, the future civic leaders returned to school with a better understanding of the town and everything that makes it work. “It was a full day for them, but they’ll remember this for a long time,” said Edwards.

BGH patient survey targets inside the box EMC News - The Brockville General Hospital (BGH) Quality and Enterprise Risk Management (Q&ERM) department wants you to think “inside the box.” “By that, we mean we are encouraging our patients and their families to complete a survey and place it in any of the new survey boxes located throughout the hospital,” explains Cathy Cassidy-Gifford, Director of Q&ERM for BGH. “Our goal is to increase the return of completed surveys, in order to drive our patientcentred initiatives and monitor their successes.” To that end, the department assessed where the original survey boxes were located throughout the Charles and Garden Street sites. Many of the boxes were in a less-thanideal locations and/or did not lock.

“These factors discouraged patients and visitors from completing the surveys,” says Cassidy-Gifford, “resulting in a low response rate. We currently receive about three completed surveys per month.” Twenty new survey boxes were recently purchased by the hospital and are currently being installed in more and better locations throughout BGH than before. These boxes are more streamlined in appearance and far more functional than those they are replacing – and all lock so privacy is secured. “We hope to increase our completed internal BGH patient satisfaction survey return rate,” Cassidy-Gifford emphasizes. The BGH Patient Satisfaction Survey may also be completed on-line at www. bgh-on.ca.

EMC News - It was Labour Day two years ago when Suzanne Jonsen first discovered a lump in her breast. Her husband, Tony Cannell, made plans to drive her to appointments – first to confirm the breast cancer diagnosis, then for surgery in Winchester, followed by radiation treatments at the Irving Greenberg Cancer Centre behind the Queensway-Carleton Hospital. Plans changed after the surgery, however, when Cannell suffered a minor stroke that resulted in the temporary loss of his driver’s licence. “I needed a driver in and out because on the 26th of January (of 2011), my husband had a small stroke,” the Clayton, Ont., resident explained. “His licence was revoked. We were in trouble.” Jonsen was at a loss. She and Cannell had lived together in Clayton for more than 12 years, and she had some friends who could make the trip with her now and then – but five days a week for five weeks was more than she could manage. That’s when a friend suggested she call Clayton-area resident Kathy Lowe, who has taken part in the Lombardy Relay for Life for 10 years and helped fundraise for the Canadian Cancer Society. Lowe mentioned the transportation program run by the cancer society, which relies on volunteer drivers to take patients to appointments for cancer treatments. The Lanark, Leeds and Grenville branch of the Canadian Cancer Society has 79 volunteer drivers to cover an area from Gananoque to Cardinal and the County of Lanark. Of those drivers, 21 were new volunteers trained this year. Jonsen started her radiation treatments in Ottawa on Feb. 22, and met several of the Mississippi Mills drivers over the next five weeks. The first was Barbara Hamilton, who has driven for 25 years. Jonsen also met Ron Lavoie, Chris Newton, Winston Hooper and Jan Maydan, who has since taken on the duties as convenor for the Mississippi

Rémi has two Masters degrees from Germany and was principle oboe and soloist in the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra for a few years. Samia O’Day is an award winning pianist, composer and teacher. She has been featured as a soloist at Place des Arts with the McGill Symphony Orchestra, was the winner of the McGill Concerto Competition at age 17, won first place at the Canadian Music Competitions, and awarded the FACTOR Independent Artist Award for her original album. Samia has toured internationally as classical pianist, composer,

Mills volunteer drivers. “If they had not been doing that, I would probably have had to have a taxi every day,” Jonsen stressed. “They were all volunteers, and they all got into it in a different kind of way.” The commonality, she added, was that the drivers had all had or known someone who had dealt with cancer. Even though each treatment lasted 10 minutes or less, Jonsen found that they tired her out to the point that she fell asleep within 10 minutes of heading home to Clayton. She said the drivers were all very pleasant, and allowed her to talk or sleep, depending on how she was feeling. “These people seem to do it year in, year out,” she said. “They don’t take too many times off. It’s amazing, it really is.” She said the Canadian Cancer Society was a saving grace during her treatment. Wheels of Hope campaign The Wheels of Hope campaign has become an annual fundraiser for the transportation program since its successful start last fall. It runs from September to December, and benefits the transportation program that filled 3,909 requests last year, taking 1,032 local clients to cancer-related appointments – a total of 318,212 kilometres. The program in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville counties cost more than $93,500 last year, with the average cost of one round-trip appointment costing $60 for mileage. The provincial average is $30, because many clients in the tricounty area travel outside of the counties for treatment. With the average cancer treatment lasting seven weeks, that means the cost to the Canadian Cancer Society would be $840. If you would like to help get local cancer patients to their treatments, you can donate to the Wheels of Hope program at www.cancer.ca/perth or by calling 613-267-1058 or 1-800-367-2913.

THANK YOU! I would like to thank my children, grandchildren, greatgrandchildren, family, friends, and the community for sharing in my 90th birthday celebrations and making it so memorable. Thank you for the party, all the cards and the visits. It was all very much appreciated! Wiebe De Jong

FIREWOOD

ELLIOTT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In loving memory of our beloved son and brother, Tyler, who left us on October 13, 2005. God called your name so gently that only you could hear, No one heard the footsteps of the Angel drawing near. Softly from the shadows there came a gentle call, You closed your eyes and went to sleep and quietly left us all. Forever loved and missed, Dad, Mom, Ryan and Courtney

WHITELAND, Sally (Antinello) - In loving memory of my dear wife of Keith Whiteland who passed away October 17th, 2010. As time goes by without you, And the days turn into years They hold a million memories And a thousand silent tears. To me you were so special, What more is there to say, Except to wish with all my heart, That you were here today. Love you Sally Keith

Seaway District celebrates Sports Day, Terry Fox Run EMC News – Seaway District High School in Iroquois celebrated Sports Day in Canada along with the Terry Fox Run on Sept. 28 by inviting students to participate in a full day of organized sporting events and activities. That morning, the school’s Link Crew welcomed each student into the gym for a presentation by Principal Terry Gardiner and local retired

teacher Bonnie Adair – both of whom talked about their personal experiences fighting cancer. “I’ve got to be the most fortunate guy around,” said Gardiner. “Eighteen years ago, I was diagnosed with Hodgkins. I’m here today because of cancer research.” Adair spoke to students about her experiences with cervical cancer, and then lung

cancer. She described herself as a very healthy teenager and young adult who was active in a variety of ways. “My family doctor described me as disgustingly healthy,” she laughed. Unfortunately, she still had to deal with cancer’s devastating effects. “After 41 weeks of chemo, and 49 radiation treatments, I stand here today and I am

Blackhawks undefeated after three: Morrow, Carter and Ryan lead the way

EMC Sports - The Island City Blackhawks have kicked off their 23rd season undefeated in their first three games. With a win, a tie, a forfeit tie and a red hot line, the Blackhawks are in a very positive frame of mind. The Island City gang opened their season hosting their arch rival Prescott Old Timers and were forced to score late to salvage a 5-5 tie. Then the boys went to Spencerville to take on the

hard working Bull Dogs where they found themselves on the right side of an 8-3 score. Finally the Hawks played the much younger re-tooled Cardinal Old Timers to a forfeit 3-3 tie after the Cardinal goalie suffered a shoulder injury with 10 minutes left in the second period. There were no substitutes to take his place so it was determined to be a tie game. The Hawks’ combination of Wayne ‘The Champ’ Mor-

row, Rob ‘The Velvet Fog’ Carter and J R ‘Buckleys’ Ryan exploded for 10 of the team’s 13 goals in the first two games. Unfortunately for the Blackhawks, Carter was not in the line up for the Cardinal game. His absence was quite obvious, none of the Hawks’ lines had any chemistry in that game either. The Blackhawks were fortunate to get the forfeit tie as they had their hands full with the much younger Cardinal

team. “The Cardinal game was very discouraging, could we have come back from a 3-1 deficit before their goalie got hurt? It’s hard to say. We were starting to finally get some quality scoring chances moments before he went down,” management commented after the game. “We still had just under half the game to play when the injury happened. It was sure hard for our guys to play this one out. How do you get into it? You don’t want to hurt anybody that’s not wearing the appropriate equipment. This has never happened to us in a game before. We’ll just move on from here,” management continued. The Blackhawks got their goals from Mike ‘Lumpy’ Mulder with two and Mitch Donnelly getting the other. Blackhawks 5 Prescott 5 Opening night versus the Fort Town lads was billed to be a goaltenders’ duel as both of these ‘Mayors of the Piped Pavilions’ have the ability to steal a game on their own merits. Prescott’s Brayden Wyatt and the Blackhawks’ Spencer Utman did not disappoint as both held their ground denying several glorious scoring opportunities. Wyatt’s strong play in the second period alone allowed his team to take control of the game the Hawks were dominating. He stopped four clear-cut breakaways and a few other point blank scoring chances to frustrate

the Broadway Avenue Boy’s shooters. Carter opened and closed the scoring for the Blackhawks when he scored a minute into the game and tied it with 6:53 left in the third. He also added two more goals in the first period to give him a four-goal game. Trevor Murray accounted for the other Blackhawks’ goal in this one. Ryan and Morrow chipped in with four and three assists respectively. “We had a couple of young lads in our line up experiencing their first ‘Battle of The River Cities’ game. Our guys had their share of the play and scoring chances to win here tonight. They have a good experienced team over there and for the most part give you nothing. You have to earn every goal you get on them,” management quipped after a few refreshments. The Hawks were up 3-2 after one thanks to Carter’s hat trick but went into the third trailing 5-4. Blackhawks 8 Bull Dogs 3 The Blackhawks followed their home and season opener vs Prescott with a trip to Spencerville for a date with Dale Visser and the Bull Dogs. In this game the Hawks iced their full squad, a rare occurrence, and played a strong game on route to an 8-3 win. The line of Morrow, Carter and Ryan were in on six of the team’s eight goals. Carter notched a hattrick and added three assists while both Ryan and Morrow each scored once

and assisted on four others. “That line was dominant every time they were on the ice. They used the ‘Attack Triangle’ to the tee all night long. It was fun to watch them from the bench,” commented team veteran and minor hockey coach Travis Cauley. The Hawks held 3-1 and 6-2 period leads before outscoring the snarly dogs 2-1 in the third. “Boy I never saw this one coming. They had a good team out here tonight. Spence played really well for us in nets and our line had some pretty good chemistry going in this game. We’ve played together for the last two seasons but have never gotten off to a start like this before,” team captain Ryan said after this contest. “That line played solidly in our first two games, they all shoot and see the ice real well. Spencer was solid for us, he never allowed them to get back into the game when they had the pressure on us,” management summarized after this game in Spencer City. The Hawks also got offence from ‘The Ageless Wonder’ Peter Culp, ‘The Rookie’ Jordy Whiteland and ‘Lumpy’ Mulder. This Saturday night the Hawks host the high-flying Chubbs from Morrisburg at 9 p.m. at their Broadway Avenue Barn. Then after the game they will charter out and head to Morrisburg for a 10 a.m. contest with the Flamingos.

“Fortunately, curling equipment and techniques have changed to accommodate them. For example, allowing a curler to deliver a rock while standing up by using a specially designed stick. Curling is a sport that people can play well into retirement. Our oldest member last season was 82, and he will be back again this fall.” The Gananoque Curling Club is a not for profit organization, proud to be serving the Gananoque region since 1934. Club Manager Jayne Curtis says, “The volunteer culture was foundational to the Club in its formative years and is an essential component to the club moving forward in these tough economic times. We

are looking for both curlers and non curlers from the community to come out and volunteer. If you have some free time and enjoy volunteering we would love your help! Club volunteers assist with ice making, bar tending, food preparation, administration… happy to utilize any skills that are being offered.“ Still got cold feet? Come join us at our open house, the week of Oct. 15 – 18 at 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. to kick off the 2012-2013 curling season! All necessary equipment is provided and free instruction will be available. Friday, Oct. 26 is Fun Night. Grab a friend and come out and give curling a

try, again free of charge! There also an eight-week “Learn to Curl” program for people just getting started in the sport, where one can get comfortable with the game then dive right into one of the regular leagues, where ongoing mentoring helps those still mastering the basics of the game.

“I am retired and also enjoy a more competitive game, so I also play in other leagues. It is a great way to help pass the winter.” Hermansen added curling is a great sport for all ages and levels of athletic ability. Weekday evenings feature a range of leagues for adult and junior members – from the seriously competitive to the relaxed and social.

EMC Sports - It is safe to assume that winter forecast is going to be long, dark and cold. It is also safe to assume most folks would like to minimize the drudgery of the winter. Now add the stress of life’s crazy schedule of school, music lessons, homework, hockey practice and dance lessons? Sometimes it seems impossible for families to fit fitness into the mix. Now is the perfect time to try curling; something new to keep both mind and body healthy. About 1.3 million Canadians know that curling provides an active winter lifestyle and a great way to connect with the community and meet new friends. Just ask Gananoque Curling Club vice president Eric Hermansen. Before he and his wife moved to Gananoque in 2009, we had limited exposure to curling. “We joined the Gananoque Curling Club that fall as a way of meeting people and enjoying some recreation. We have both loved it,” he said. “We both curl in the Mixed Social League, the least competitive of the evening leagues, where the emphasis is on fun and recreation. We have made good friends and both look forward to our Tuesday evenings at the club.
