Social media expert preaches ‘balance’ in how it gets used to parents, students By CONAN de VRIES EMC News - For those who may send only an occasional text message or sporadically update a Facebook page, it can be a tall order keeping current as to the newest and greatest social networking technologies and on top of the everchanging online environment in which people are spending more and more of their time. That’s why Jesse Miller is in such demand as a guest speaker and social media consultant. The founder of Vancouver-based Mediated Reality is regularly engaged by schools, government agencies, and corporations as a guide through the often chaotic world of social media. Last week, he spoke to schools in Leeds and Grenville and made a stop on Oct. 17 at South Grenville District

High School in Prescott. He made a presentation to the students during the day and then another in the evening to parents and the general public. About 35 people showed up to hear him speak about the profusion of social networking technology and the failure of young people, and their parents, to fully appreciate the burden such technology places on one’s privacy and the threat it occasionally poses to one’s safety. There are dozens of different messaging, photo-sharing and video applications available to pretty well every phone, pad or computer to which a person might have access. The capacity to communicate instantly with anyone anywhere in the world is, in most cases, no farther away than one’s pocket.

Nobody, least of all Miller, doubts the value and importance of such connectivity, but many – especially the younger set – have failed to adapt their behaviour, both online and off, in view of this new and powerful technology that surrounds them everywhere they go. “Your kids are part of the Internet,” says Miller. “They were born on the Internet.” Miller spoke of the riots that took place in Vancouver in 2011, following the loss by the Vancouver Canucks in game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals, as a turning point in how people viewed social media. Many people were caught red-handed behaving outrageously at best and at worst in the commission of crimes, including vandalism, theft and assault. It was often bystand-

EMC News - Everyone will agree that our basic needs are shelter, food and clothing. Yet many families, even those within our community, struggle with these basic needs. Websites such as hungerawarenessweek.ca serve to inform the public of the growing need of hunger in Canada. This site shares that more than 900,000 Canadians relied on food banks last month. Hunger in Canada is a solvable problem and local food banks have a major role to play. Christine Foote is the vice president of the food bank located at 55 King St E. in the basement of the Gananoque Legion. The food bank is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. Residents have access to canned foods, fresh vegetables when they are in season, packaged food, milk, bread and a variety of other items. Individuals can access the food bank once a month; and many rely on its assistance regularly. Often people will come to the food bank as a last resort, they feel ashamed. “We couldn’t do without each other.” Foote says. As a community we are to care for one another and Foote encourages those in need of help to come in. The food bank ensures as much privacy and discretion as possible. “People are very generous and we are very pleased,” says Foote. “There are other food banks that are struggling but Gananoque and the surrounding areas are so generous so we are doing pretty well. Summer is the time that we really get low.”

ers with camera phones who took the photos and video that police would later use to lay charges against the rioters. More perplexing, though, are the number of people the police identified by photos and videos the perpetrators took of themselves, or had taken, and then uploaded to their own social media accounts. Though the Vancouver riots are an unusual example of how social media can chronicle and preserve evidence of crime, everyday people are introducing aspects of themselves to the online world that they can’t retract and the effects of which they may not fully appreciate. “Today, social media is judge, jury and journalist – and everything in between,”

says Miller. ‘Google never forgets’ More and more, job applicants have to consider what a potential employer might see if he does a quick online search of the applicant’s name and follows his digital tracks online. Similarly, the disturbing trend of young people sending lewd

photos of themselves through online networks – so-called ‘sexting’ – betrays the kids’ failure to appreciate that it can be difficult, sometimes impossible, to delete something from the Internet. “Google never forgets,” says Miller. Even going on a vacation demands some caution. Miller

asked those in the audience if they’re sure to lock down their home before leaving on a trip. Sure enough, everyone agreed that they carefully close up their house before travelling. But how many people take the same precautions online. A thief can tell that a person is away from home for a while just as easily from the homeowner’s daily chronicle on Facebook of his trip to Disneyworld as from a pile of uncollected newspapers on his front step. Insurance companies, says Miller, now look into such things when investigating a claim and under these circumstances would be unlikely to pay up. “You left the door wide open,” he said. Social media is a stage, and anybody can walk onto it, but at times, people forget that when they’re on that stage, everybody is watching. People can become so enamoured of the attention that they neglect to consider the repercussions of attracting it. “The biggest part of social media that stands out to me is the word ‘me’,” said Miller. The solution to the problems presented by social media is not restrict it, as it has become indispensable to modern-day communication, but rather to use it wisely. There are advantages and disadvantages to the ease of connection afforded by social media, and as long as people realize that and act accordingly, the online world will be a much safer place. “A balance is important,” says Miller.

Brockville citizens group shuts down after three years EMC News - Citizens Brockville (CB) held its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 16. Members were provided with a portfolio update from guest speaker David Paul, Economic Development Director of the City of Brockville, followed by an explanation by Dr. Peter Pechan of the rationale behind the Innovation Centre being developed by the Leeds & Grenville Computer Technology Centre. According to its mission statement, CB was formed “to encourage civic betterment in and around Brockville through the promotion of good and transparent governance, good planning, prudent fiscal management, and citizen involve-

ment in civic affairs.” In the business portion of the AGM, members voted to wind down the organization. Acknowledgement was made of CB’s contribution to civic discourse through its three years of operation including detailed analyses of the Maritime Discovery Centre project (later renamed as Aquatarium); the staging of two well-attended Town Hall meetings during the last municipal elections; input on the city’s new Official Plan; and more recently, further study and recommendations for the future of Brockville’s waterfront district. It is expected that the latter will feed into the work being done by the city’s EDAT waterfront team.

Future Aquatarium & RiverQuest will make region ‘Stronger Together’ EMC News - Officials with the Aquatarium provided an update last Wednesday morning at the kick off for the fourth annual Brockville and District Tourism Summit. A key component of the Aquatarium initiative is the establishment of RiverQuest (RQ) – a developing “regional campus” partnership comprised of 1000 Islands-area destinations and offerings. Early RQ partners on both sides of the border have stated “we are all stronger together” and “we will flourish through openness and cooperation.” Tony Barnes, Aquatarium Committee Chair, says “We created RiverQuest as a cornerstone program to ensure the success of the Aquatarium and our regional partners. The Aquatarium will be a world-class destination here in Brockville, but we also realize visitors appreciate having help finding and accessing other quality offerings for day 2 or 3 of their visit. If they can plan a more complete outing, they’re more likely to choose the 1000 Islands region from other destinations.” RiverQuest will help visitors

find and pursue the attractions and offerings they are interested in as a follow-on to their Aquatarium visit. Riverquest plans to include local museums, art centres and mission-based organizations. In the Brockville area alone RQ partners will hopefully include the Arts Centre, Fulford Place, River cruises, the Brockville museum, dive charter companies and more. “Our collective vision is to build awareness and appreciation for the wonders of the 1000 Islands region,” says Aquatarium Executive Director Bill Rogerson. “The stories and experiences that can be found here ... you won’t find anywhere else! One hundred years ago the 1000 Islands region was the place everyone wanted to be and we can be that place again! By cooperating and telling our stories, the millions of potential visitors within a six-hour drive who are mostly unaware of us, will be back. All of us will benefit from RiverQuest.” The Aquatarium building is well under way and on target for a building christening with

time capsule and official launch of RiverQuest in June 2013. Content for the exhibits is being developed along with the exhibit technologies. Plans call for a graduated opening over a six-month period to allow for “test driving” of exhibits by community groups, RiverQuest partners and school groups. A potential major international conference is being targeted for October 2013 which will generate international awareness and media coverage. This will be

A first in Canada 3M Canada receives ISO 50001 accreditation at Brockville tape manufacturing site every roll of tape that left the plant this year required less energy to make than last year.

By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News – On Friday, Oct. 19, 3M Canada president and general manager Paul Madden brought major players and employees together to thank them for assisting in the ISO 50001 designation for superior manufacturing energy performance. 3M Canada is the first company in Canada to receive this recognition and the second in the world. Those in attendance included Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown, Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark and City of Brockville acting mayor Jane Fullarton along with representation from Enbridge Gas Distribution, Hydro One Networks, Energy Performance Service and the Ministry of Natural Resources. As Madden took to the lectern he spoke about the 55,000 products that 3M manufactures around the world. “Often times you do not know what those products are (that 3M makes),� said Madden. “It is said that in a typical day, an average person would be in contact with over two dozen 3M products, but would have trouble naming those products. We know here in Brockville that we manufacture masking tape and up the road we make respiratory products. Madden said it was not unusual for the Brockville plants to have firsts in manufacturing or inventing new products.

When Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown spoke, he indicated that this initiative had taken a lot of hard work by staff and employees over

the last couple of years. He then presented the Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation plaque to Madden congratulating 3M Canada on becoming certified in ISO 50001 and to the MSE 50021, Superior Energy Performance, Platinum Certification.

about teamwork, dedication and personal inspiration.� At this point Madden recognized the project leaders, namely Earl Taylor, Andrew Hejnar, Tyler Blakely and Andrew Polk. “Our objectives we kept in mind throughout the program was to build on the energy requirement from our earlier projects,� said Taylor. “The thing that most impressed our auditors was when they went out on to the shop floor to talk with our employees. That was when they said ‘wow’; this plant has continuous improvement culture built right in.� Taylor commented that

LETTER TO THE EDITOR MP shows how to make a difference DEAR EDITOR: On Sept. 20, 2012 Human Resources and Skills Development Minister Diane Finley tabled a bill creating a new EI benefit for the parents of gravely ill children. In introducing this bill, Minister Finley acknowledged the tireless efforts of Gordon Brown, Federal MP for Leeds-Grenville, who led the fight on this issue and kept Parliament focused on providing support to a group so clearly deserving of help. Once implemented, this new EI special benefit will provide income support and job protection for up to 35 weeks to parents or legal guardians of children under 18 with a life threatening illness or injury. Mr. Brown’s support for parents of critically ill children began eight years ago when he met Sharon Ruth, a courageous mother, whose young daughter was fighting cancer. Ms. Ruth wanted to know why she couldn’t take time off work to support and care for her child during cancer treatment. Her story

moved Mr. Brown to champion this cause over many years to ensure job security for parents and guardians caring for an ill child. Although his early attempts to table a private member’s bill to address this need were unsuccessful, each attempt drew attention in Parliament and from the community to this important issue, eventually resulting in the tabling of the EI benefit announced last month. Supporting the parents of critically ill children was seen as a worthy cause by many, but it was Mr. Brown who took the fight to Parliament and won. The Canadian Cancer Society applauds Mr. Brown and his Parliamentary colleagues for making a difference to families that desperately need support during such a trying time in their lives. Dan Demers Director, Public Issues Canadian Cancer Society

EMC Editorial - Amanda Michelle Todd, a name which is now familiar in households across this country - a name now synonymous with suicide and bullying. The 15 year-old girl from Port Coquitlam, B.C., died by suicide earlier this month, after posting a video on YouTube, just over a month earlier. The video, through written cards she held for viewers to read as they went along, told of a long battle with bullying and depression, self mutilation, even earlier suicide attempts. The video did not show her face, merely the cards which told a harrowing tale of unrelenting attacks – verbal, physical and over the internet – from her fellow classmates, at various schools she attended. She had moved several times to different schools, each time being followed over the internet. Eventually she ended up back in the bullying cycle from which she had previously escaped. She had made a few mistakes in life, perhaps some poor decisions - but what youth hasn’t made a few mistakes growing up? Everyone has those moments, split second decisions they wish they could take back. Her YouTube video describes one specific moment, which she feels brought on the avalanche of cruelty from her peers. From there the harsh words tumbled - putting her into a spiral of torment, both in her own head and everywhere she turned. Amanda Todd’s decision to end her own life as a result of being bullied bring about many questions that need to be answered. The schools Todd attended – what were they doing to curb incidents of bullying? Were they taking preventative measures or addressing issues of bullying as they occurred? Obviously not well enough, as Todd’s video describes years of suffering. But bullying has evolved with technology and has a far reaching scope outside of the classroom. Whether it be undertaken federally or provincially, measures and laws should be enacted so children, and adults even, do not have to be subjected to this kind of abhorrent behaviour. While local school boards have bullying initiatives in place are they enough to prevent a similar tragedy here? Bullying is an unnecessary evil, and needs to be stopped, through whatever means possible. One young life wiped out by suicide is one too many.

Marguirite swings into action at Northcote school EMC Lifestyle - My little friend Velma and I met at the back fence behind the Northcote School. Her feelings for bad Marguirite were just about the same as mine! How much do you want to bet she is still in her white store bought underwear that her mother buys in Walkers Store? Our eyes travelled over towards the gate where Marguirite was trying to work herself into a group of Senior Fourth girls who obviously wanted no part of her either. The less any of us had to do with the girl, the better we liked it. It wasn’t that she was so bad, even though we all called her bad Marguirite. It was just that she was so privileged! Being an only child gave her a decided advantage, and also gave her a sense of self importance that none of us could tolerate. I was very aware of the heavy navy blue fleece lined bloomers I had been forced

into a week ago. The weather now had a nip in the air, and even a few snowflakes had fallen. There was no doubt Fall was upon us, and winter wasn’t far behind. It was a long walk to the Northcote school, and we never knew when the weather was going to change and catch us without warm clothes. So Mother had long since ordered by sister Audrey into heavier white warm underpants, and me into the hateful navy blue fleece lined bloomers we got from Eatons catalogue. I hated them with a passion. “Bet a dollar she doesn’t even own a pair of those hateful bloomers,” Velma said.

We looked over at Marguirite. There she was. Bouncing around like a rubber ball, in a brand new plaid coat with velvet collar, white stockings, and her usual black patent leather Mary Jane shoes. “If I had a dollar I would take you up on that Velma. Everyone our age wears those navy bloomers. And I am pretty sure Marguirite’s Mother would have her in them by now.” “I don’t think so,” Velma said. With slitted eyes we watched Marguirite at the swinging gate. It was then Velma had a most brilliant idea. It would involve Cecil of course. Everything that had a bit of a

risk to it, always involved Cecil. Velma told me to follow her. I was used to that order, and walked with Velma over to the gate. The gate had to be kept hooked, because it was on a slant, and slammed shut otherwise. Velma called Cecil aside. That in itself was unusual. Cecil had very little to do with we younger girls at the Northcote school. But I saw Velma take something out of her lunch bag and hand it over to Cecil and I saw him nodding and looking over at Marguirite. “Who wants to swing on the gate?” Cecil hollered. We all loved to swing on the gate, and Marguirite was no exception. The young girls from Junior Third all yelled at once, but since the gate would only hold one at a time, Cecil pointed to Marguirite and said she could go first. Velma beckoned me over and we stood close to the

action. Cecil said you could get a better swing if you put yourself higher on the gate and bent over. He made Marguirite climb up near the top and then pushed her over so that her head was hanging down on the other side of the gate. I was surprised she went for it. Marguirite never took orders from anyone. Cecil stood on the side of the gate where her head was, and he ran the gate closed and then gave it a mighty heave and running, swung it wide open. Marguirite squealed with glee, and Cecil gave her another ride for good measure. Then when the ride was over he accidentally pushed her off to the ground, and she went spread eagle head over tea kettle! I have no idea how he did it, but Cecil was able to have her land with her new plaid coat and everything under it around her shoulders. And there for

the entire Northcote School to see was her store bought underwear from Walker Store, as white as the driven snow. No navy blue fleece lined bloomers for Marguirite. Velma just smiled in my direction, nodded to Cecil and we all lined up to go into school as Miss Crosby stood on the step ringing the big brass bell. I asked Velma how she was able to get Cecil into the act. She said it cost her two molasses cookies. That night at home, without giving Mother the details (I knew she would never approve of such shenanigans), I told her that Marguirite didn’t have to wear navy blue fleece lined bloomers, and I could see no reason why I had to. Mother said she didn’t care if even Princess Margaret Rose didn’t wear them or didn’t even own a pair, I would be wearing the navy blue fleece lined bloomers and there would be no further discussion.

Summit provides vision of what tourism could be across this region EMC News – Close to 55 interested people attended the fourth annual Brockville and District Tourism Summit, ‘Recipes for Success’, on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012, at the Brockville Country Club. The agenda was comprised of qualified individuals who spoke regarding the local materials and resources available, the Great Waterway, effective partnering, partnering opportunities, the importance of customer service, an update on 2013 Tall Ships Festival, the Aquatarium and the Railway Tunnel. Creating experiences for visitors, showcasing specific events only available in this area, thinking outside the box and working together in partnerships along with project updates were the focus of this conference. Great Waterway Executive director of the Great Waterway (Regional Tourism Organization 9) Libby Smith explained that Region 9 is one of 13 in the province which is funded by the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “We became incorporated in 2010,” said Smith, “a notfor-profit organization with a vision to achieve the highest growth of tourism visitation revenues and investment amongst Ontario’s tourism regions, by developing results driven by product development and marketing initiatives.” Smith spoke of the accommodations industry tracking, a program hotels are involved with to follow the occupancy trend in this region. “We did a visitor tracking project,” indicated Smith. “At the Visitor Information Centre we collected data with an iPad. Through this process, July 1 to December 31, 2011, 2,215 visitors were interviewed with another 409 participating in an on-line survey. Other initiatives included a culinary project, theatre packages and the Great Waterway brand and media strategy launch events held in three different locations throughout the region.

Managing partner of the Economic Planning Group of Canada Gordon Phillips speaks to those gathered at the fourth annual Brockville and District Tourism Summit on Wednesday, Oct. 17, regarding packaging for Brockville tourism players. The focus for 2012-2013 was a new marketing strategy with website enhancements, road trips, customer service certified training (on-line), accommodations industry tracking, visitor tracking, boating visitor research, a focus on cycling, culinary and arts, culture and heritage, War of 1812 Bicentennial, support of familiarization tours and consumer shows, signage and the Great Waterway Classic Golf Sponsorship 2012-2015. The results showed that key visitor experiences were golf, festivals, theatre, heritage, cycling, Waterway activities, wine and food. For 2013-2014, the goal is to tap into the Partnership Fund to develop stronger regional relationships and to strengthen the range of tourism offerings in The Great Waterway. The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport will grant $25,000 to the region with tourism partners matching this amount.

On Wednesday, Oct. 17 at the Brockville and District fourth annual Tourism Summit held at the Brockville Country Club, executive director of the Great Waterway (RTO9) Libby Smith gives those in attendance an overview of what the Great Waterway along with the sub-regions are doing and their future initiatives.

More details about this particular program in January 2013. Packaging and Partnership opportunities “Basically packaging involves putting together positive experiences and packaging with things like accommodations, meals or other services,” explained manager partner Gordon Phillips, The Economic Planning Group of Canada. “Traditional (tourism) packages have been around a long time and are a very controversial thing. People in the tourism industry do not think they work very well.” Phillips went on to say that with social media and access to information on-line consumers can build of a travel package themselves. “What we’ll talk about today is the different types of packaging that works in these circumstances,” said Phillips. “The consumer is now in charge.” Phillips expressed his thoughts with an on-line reservation system which is convenient rapid growth sector in tourism with theses booking engines such as Meridian Reservation Systems. “The tradition of packaging has been all inclusive with the necessary services,” said Phillips. “Then there is the menu package or flexible package with the idea of putting together some ingredients, enough to capture their attention, but not everything that they might be interested in. For some there are add-on features.” Phillips continued to indicate that tour operators are selling FYT or Fully Independent Travel packages which give the consumer choices. Another benefit to an area is the suggested itinerary. “What we are seeing now in the market place is the destination areas and businesses going out and saying here’s all the experiences you may want to consider in coming to my destination area,” stated Phillips. “Basically you are suggesting

an itinerary to them.” Phillips believes if you can make packaging work for you then there are some significant paybacks. The operator can introduce new product offers, attract new markets, have repeat visitors, increase yield in busy periods, develop more business in slow periods through adding value or savings and the costs can be shared with partners. For the client, easier travel planning, an enriched experience with added value or savings. Some other approaches are themed experiential event packages specific to a target market. Others are offering visitor added support services or value added features or savings in the soft demand periods.

and six states in the United States. Some of the planned events include the sail pass, an aboriginal pow-wow, children’s pirate-themed activities, Major-General Brock film feature, tent for display of model ships and ship deck tours and much more.

2013 Tall Ships Festival “We are in planning mode,” said City of Brockville Economic Development director Dave Paul. “We would love your ideas following the theme of nautical on the river and of course Tall Ships 1812. We need volunteers, about 150.” The purpose of the 2013 Tall Ships Festival is to establish an annual festival that has substantial economic and underlying social benefits for the residents of Leeds and Grenville. Paul also is in hopes of branding Brockville as one of the Tall Ships stop-over in future years. This committee’s goal is to receive the Port of the Year, Tall Ships America Award. The Tall Ships Challenge visits two provinces in Canada

Railway Tunnel Committee Progress Report The Railway Tunnel committee chair and Brockville City councillor Dave LeSueur told those present the history of the tunnel along with indicating the first study regarding the opening of the tunnel was conducted in 1974 along with a more recent one. The 1,730 foot tunnel runs from Victoria Avenue entrance under Victoria and Pine Streets as well as City (Victoria) Hall to the waterfront. “We have looked at opening the tunnel for people to walk through, cycle through and also for a train,” said LeSueur, “with rubber wheels which can easily tour downtown.” He also mentioned the committee had looked at replicating

Aquatarium update Project administrator Bill Rogerson showed videos and spoke of the many destinations in the 1000 Islands which visitors will become aware of through the 1000 Islands River Quest exhibit. Pirates, adventure, wreck diving, history and learning about the vegetation and animals that call this region home.

the train station, but that would not be possible. But what is possible is the use of work sheds with large doors which could be used for a flea market, glass blowing and so on. On a projected image, LeSueur pointed out a turntable that existed years ago which he feels was buried under earth. “We are looking for ideas if we dig this up,” said LeSueur. LeSueur also mentioned the nomination of the Railway Tunnel into the Canadian Railway Hall of Fame which they are waiting on to hear from the selection committee. Customer service At the Brockville Arts Centre (BAC), administrator of cultural program Peter Dunn and his employees know the importance of great customer service. “As we all know we can have the best marketing plan, we can have all our ducks in a line, but if people come to our attractions and businesses and are disappointed in the service they get, it is all for nothing,” said Dunn. Dunn reviewed why customer service is so important to a business and shared service tips. He also mentioned that a suggestion box would be set up very soon at the BAC. As each speaker shared their expertise, it was evident that if this region wants to become a contender in tourism, it must work together with a vision as to what the visitor wants and be willing to give it, with a smile.

Trillium Foundation launches “Get to Know Us� campaign EMC News - The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is reaching out to various groups throughout the area in an effort to help them fulfill their dreams, ambitions and aspirations. “Essentially, we’re reaching out because we want to get to know those organizations we have not funded before,� said Stephanie Attwood of the organization. “Though OTF gets many more applications than we can fund, we think we could be seeing more applications from ethno-cultural/aboriginal/francophone serving groups in the OTF catchment area of Quinte, Kingston, Rideau.� This region’s diverse and ethno-cultural populations tend to be small, concentrated in tiny communities found in larger groups or centres. They

are very important to the overall culture and structure of the area and need to be recognized and encouraged. However, the number of applications made by these groups to OTF is proportionately even smaller than their representation in the general population. “Last year we awarded only two grants to aboriginalfocused organizations, and none to ethno-cultural organizations,� said Attwood. “Our most recent francophone grant was to the Centre Culturelle in Kingston.� A misconception expressed by some small local groups is that the Ontario government has no interest in funding projects in Quinte, Kingston, Rideau. They believe that because they hear of so many rejected projects that theirs will have no chance to be examined, let alone fulfilled.

Yet last year alone the OTF divided grants totalling $4.14 million to 80 different organizations in this area. Attwood has been a program manager with the OTF for more than three years. She is eager to talk with the various ethno-cultural groups in the area and determine how many of them are out there, what their needs may be, and go about finding ways to help them. “Some of the benefits we can provide are grants towards renovations to a community space including accessibility, grants towards assistance with festivals, grants towards program development or enhancements, grants towards initiatives that strengthen organizational capacity and more,� said Attwood. Grants are given based on need in the community, as well as many other factors. There are tree types of grants to choose from – Community Grants, which are for proposals having a mainly local impact; the Future Fund, for projects that use distinct and innovative ways to make significant, sustainable changes in some specific area; and Province Wide, which are projects that have an impact on a significant part of the province. Each level brings with it different rules, obligations and funding amounts, and each is designed to give maximum support to the group or organization using the funding. Perhaps a group has an interest in setting up a teaching program to help local people learn more about their history, culture and language. They have a set idea in mind as to how they wish to go about this, but require funding. It would be advisable for them See TRILLIUM page 25

Since its launch in August of this year, the website (www. steo.ca) has continued to undergo significant development in preparation for the winter weather season. Announcements regarding the cancellation of school bus and special vehicle transportation will be posted on the website via a ‘View Bus Delays and Cancellations’ link. In addition, STEO will be broadcasting informa-

tion beginning at 6:15 a.m. on local radio stations, and has established a telephone hotline (1-866-629-0629) where callers can access a pre-recorded message regarding inclement weather bus cancellations. Cotnam also shared some of STEO’s plans for future developments with regard to school bus safety, and new technology. The consortium plans to implement the installation of GPS technology, as well as video cameras, on all school buses, with a completion goal of September 2013. These advancements provide many benefits, including more efficient routing and improved

school bus safety. In addition, new alarm systems will be introduced for van transportation vehicles, to ensure that students are wearing seatbelts. “Driver training is also very high on our priority list,” added Cotnam. “We have one of the top driver training programs in the province, and plans are in place for further development of our student training program.” For more information and news from STEO, visit their website at www.steo.on.ca.

The group aims to provide access to ministrylicensed software to publicly funded school boards, through a centrally managed system. The committee is responsible for consulting with the publicly funded education system to assess provincial priorities in the areas of required software titles recommended by teachers in support of learning. Presently, more than 200 software titles are available. The goal of OSAPAC in the Cloud, is to expand the current OSAPAC model to support board strategies, which aim to increase technology penetration into schools. School boards are moving to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) scenarios, and student devices would benefit from access to OSAPAC software. Kozera is working with OSAPAC to create a system which allows ubiquitous access, where students can run the software from personal devices at school, without having to directly install software. For Windows-based computers, the Cloud platform is capable of deploying, updating, and managing software titles directly on the computers. Under the proposed platform,

BGH welcomes full-time hospitalist EMC News - Brockville General Hospital (BGH) recently welcomed Dr. Karen Lee as a full-time hospitalist. Lee, who was born in Hong Kong and moved to Montreal at the age of 12, is a graduate of the medical program at State University of New York (SUNY), and has her Ph.D. in Experimental Medicine/Biochemistry from McGill University. She also did her residency training at McGill University, in the department of Family Medicine. A “hospitalist” is a hospital-based physician that cares for hospitalized patients that do not have family physicians or those who continue to work in the hospital. In practical terms, the hospitalist is responsible for patients in hospital but also ensures that discharge arrangements are in place

This is achieved by working closely with nursing staff, including discharge planners and the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC). Lee says she always wanted to be involved with inpatient care, seeing a diverse range of problems with more complex requirement for investigation and treatment. “Being a hospitalist brings its own challenges,” she explains. “You are always seeing the new things with a faster pace, often expected in an acute care setting. It is a great area for challenges and continued learning.” Lee spends her off hours mostly on the road, dividing her time between visiting her husband, an emergency medicine resident at SUNY in Syracuse, or her parents who still reside in Montreal. Brockville was chosen to work and live in as it was a good “middle ground” for both visit destinations. Lee says that she and her husband also like the city’s small but scenic atmosphere. “Brockville is traditional and cozy,” says Lee. “And it is very pleasant. Where we live must be pleasant,” she adds with a smile, “or we would never come.” Dr. Lee holds no office hours at the present time, working entirely out of BGH, but hopes to do so sometime in the future.

Local group shines light on energy efficient lighting systems EMC News - Confused about whether to use LED or fluorescent light bulbs in your home or business? Which will give the kind of light you want? Which will save the most energy and the most money in your home or business lighting system? If it all seems too complex, you aren’t the only one who thinks so. “Lighting is not so easy these days,” says John Beckstead, owner of JS Design and Sales, in Brockville. “Everything we’ve known the last 40 years is gone.” To throw some light on lighting, Transition Brockville has invited Beckstead to give a presentation about efficient lighting for businesses (commercial, industrial and retail), public buildings and residences at its next meeting, this Sunday, October 28. Beckstead has been in the lighting design business for many years – 12 of them with his own company – and has redesigned the lighting systems for Brockville’s two fire stations, both arenas, the waste and water treatment plants, and city hall itself. He also designed the lighting for the athletic field at the new

high school in Kemptville. In his presentation, he’ll touch on the differences between incandescent, fluorescent, compact fluorescent and LED (light emitting diode) lighting. Changes are happening fast in the lighting industry, he says, and people haven’t been able to keep up. Few understand LED lights, although they’ve existed for 50 years. People don’t know the advantages of LEDs (for starters, 50,000 hours indoor lighting per LED bulb versus 20,000-30,000 hours with fluorescents) or what they should be aware of and be careful of when using LEDs. To show the differences, he will bring samples of various types of lights. Turning them on, he’ll discuss their lumens (amount of light) and wattage (energy usage), their colour temperature and colour rendering. He’ll also talk about government rebate programs such as Save On Energy/ ERIP available to those retrofitting or installing new lighting. Anyone who’d like some enlightenment on this issue is encouraged to come to the Transition Brockville

meeting October 28, at 2 p.m., in the Brockville Public Library’s meeting room. All are welcome to this free, public presentation, including a question and answer time. Transition Brockville (TB) was founded by local residents five years ago to provide a non-partisan forum for sharing information about how each of us, in our daily lives, can help to slow the rate of global warming, reduce our dependence on depleting fossil fuels, and adapt to the impacts of peak oil and climate change. TB builds and sells rain barrels to interested homeowners. It also sponsors a program that allows people to borrow a watt meter from the Brockville Public Library to measure the electricity used by various appliances and electronic equipment in their homes. For more information about Transition Brockville, visit transitionbrockville.com or call Hugh Campbell, 613-345-2712. Meetings from September to June are usually held on the fourth Sunday at the library, a partner with TB in offering these presentations.

Rideau Canal season to remain intact in 2013 By EMMA JACKSON emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news – The Rideau Canal will be open for its full season from Victoria Day to Thanksgiving in 2013, according to an announcement from Environment Minister Peter Kent last week. Shortened hours and increased user fees will likely offset the preserved season, although the full details of those changes have not yet been announced. In April, a Parks Canada memo outlined the need for drastic changes to the Rideau Canal’s operations, including cuts to season length, operating hours and staffing, to make up for a $29.2 million budget cut. It was unclear at the time when or how those changes would take affect. A Parks Canada spokesperson said at the time that locks services at Parks Canada canals have remained virtually unchanged for the past

25 years, while usage has dropped by about a third. Local representatives immediately spoke out against the changes, citing loss of tourist dollars in towns like Merrickville, Perth and Smiths Falls. Merrickville Mayor Doug Struthers said the “message was clear” that cutting the season would damage local, regional and national economies – and the federal government listened. “In terms of the elected representatives, we saw our opportunity to meet and discuss and influence those who give direction to Parks Canada,” he said. “The powers that be recognized the value of having a comprehensive assessment, which clearly took place through the consultation process (in the spring and summer).” Struthers said the shortened hours and potentially higher user fees will not impact

businesses nearly as much as a lost or shortened season would have. “What we’re hearing from users of the system is that it’s not necessary to have 12 hours a day to utilize the system,” he said. “These were opportunities to look at mitigating not just the cost of operations but mitigating a negative impact on the usage of the canal.” The 2012 season’s hours ranged from six hours per day in off-peak times to 11 hours per day during the busy part of the summer. In 2013, Parks Canada will

continue providing ‘upon arrival’ services throughout the peak summer period, and offer a modified service seven days a week through scheduled lockages in the spring and fall period. It will also “align its hours of operation and personal service offer to better reflect patterns of use, offering between seven and nine hours of service per day,” according to a statement. Brown pleased Gord Brown, MP for LeedsGrenville, also applauded Kent’s announcement.

“This is an extremely important announcement for our riding. A shortened season could have been economically devastating for our region,” Brown said in a statement. “I am pleased to note that those consultations bundled in the report that was sent to the minister and discussed with the Prime Minister, helped maintain the full operating season on the Rideau.” Kent thanked stakeholders for their feedback while the department considered how to move forward. “With this decision, the

canals and the surrounding communities will continue flourishing as a vibrant centre of our regions,” Kent said following Question Period on Thursday, Oct. 18. “The government appreciated the constructive feedback we received from the public, and was pleased to work with the local members of Parliament, mayors, business leaders and stakeholders to determine a workable schedule going forward that is affordable while minimizing the impact on the local economies and visitors.”

Food drive connects RDHS students with Thanksgiving spirit EMC News - Students at Rideau District High School (RDHS) shared the Thanksgiving spirit this past week, collecting nearly 450 food items to help the needy. The Elgin-based high school conducted a Thanksgiving Food Drive from Sept. 27 to Oct. 4 in partnership with Farm Credit Canada. The food will be distributed to food banks in Westport, Elgin, Seeley’s Bay, Delta and Portland.

Students collected a variety of food items, ranging from Kraft Dinner to canned ham, to help fill the cupboards of those requiring support. The food drive was coordinated by the RDHS Student Council and was a way to help others while demonstrating the character of Rideau students. It also helped open the eyes of students to the reality of others, said Bridget Mavety, student council president.

“It shows students that everyone isn’t as fortunate as we might be,” said Mavety. “It also teaches us that it’s always a good idea, when you can, to give back to the community.” To encourage RDHS students to support the drive, the school offered the chance to watch a movie to the class that collected the most food. The contest was won by Grade 8 teacher Sandra Uniacke’s class.

and parasite removal have improved the health not only of these animals, but of the community at large. A strict program of rabies inoculation has virtually eliminated this disease (which crosses the species barrier and is life threatening to humans as well as pets) inside the residential portion of towns and villages. Consistent spaying and neutering has reduced the number of animals born each year, thereby cutting the number wandering the streets. The majority of parasites suffered by animals are also health risks to humans, and by removing them, there is again less chance of disease and upset in the resident population. Operating costs are roughly $400 per day, or a total of $146,100 for the year. And between inflation, a poor economy and ever more kittens and cats being abandoned at the Shelter, it gets harder every day. Events such as this dinner help ease some of the strain while providing a delightful evening of food and entertainment for those who participate. Tickets are $45 per person, and $320 for a table of eight. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call the shelter at 613-3823712 no later than 3 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25.

At Precision Contracting, they help you prioritize your home improvement schedules to fit your needs and desires, always keeping your budget and quality as their first priority. In 2005, Lindsay Haley and his wife Jennifer finished university and returned to Lindsay’s hometown of Brockville to start Precision Contracting.

They started small, making sure that each and every customer was properly serviced, one step at a time. Using this philosophy, the team at Precision choose to focus their attention on the details of each project, making sure nothing is overlooked. From the very beginning, Lindsay and Jenn learned that superior workmanship, scheduling and organization are the essential elements that keep any project on track, and on budget, while never sacrificing quality and their commitment to customer service.

with rustproofing. As a car is being built, the manufacturer protects most of its hidden parts with products that keep the metal as clean as possible without corrosion. Yet, with time, corrosion will begin to appear in hard-to-see places. This process will begin after about three or four years. Rustproofing must be applied to the undercarriage and inside the body as close

as possible to where panels meet, especially around the wheel wells. Some rustproofing material is jelly-like and clings to the body. Other materials are more liquid and will seep into the smallest cracks and crevices. Other types of rustproofer are oily and might drip onto a driveway or a street. That might seem messy, but such a solution also lubricates some

moving parts that would, otherwise, rust and seize. Some dealers offer their customers rustproofing protection, but in many parts of the country it is best to visit a local rustproofing shop. There, specialized technicians will decide where to open holes to inject rustproofing products that will keep the undercarriage of the car rust-free for its lifespan.

Even better, the 2013 subcompact is safer for passengers than the big 1973 sedan, because it is safetyequipped with airbags, seatbelts, and other devices that will protect passengers from serious injuries. Not surprisingly, the 2013 subcompact also delivers much better fuel economy and better performance, even with a smaller engine and mechanical components.

For example, GM now offers the Chevrolet Spark, a diminutive auto that is perfect for today’s incredibly crowded city streets. Based on dimensional averages for typical 1973 American sedans, the Spark is 50 percent smaller than the average full-sized sedan of those days. In fact, the Spark is six inches taller than the typical 1973 sedan. But what really surprised many observers is that the 2013 subcompact has front and

For many Canadian motorists, washing a car in winter seems like an impossible task. Yet, it is crucial to the survival of the vehicle, mostly in the colder and snowy areas where salt or other forms of abrasives are used on roads during the cold season. Do not think because it is cold that those salts or abrasives are harmless to a vehicle’s body or structure. They are still active! Running your car or light truck through a car wash regularly is not wasted money, especially if it is a touchless high

pressure car wash that can reach every crack and crevice under the vehicle. Have a close look at the many options offered at the car wash. There might even be one that will spray water under the vehicle to remove accumulated salt and dirt, thus curtailing corrosion. The optional hot wax job might also seem like too much, but it is another step that can help you fight corrosion! If, by any luck, there is a thaw during the winter, take advantage of the slightly warmer weather to wash the car by yourself

with the garden hose or, even better, with a pressure washer. Try to do it when the sun is as high as possible, around noon, so the car will dry without icing up. Cleaning the interior is also a good idea, as salt and dirt might accumulate on carpets and slowly lead to rusting underneath. Don’t be tempted to keep a bag of salt in the trunk for fear of getting stuck in the snow or on the ice. No matter how careful you are, some of that salt will spill in the trunk and it will cause corrosion.

Choosing the right winter tire

TH

ORD IS H C C A 3 1 0 2 W E E ALL-N

More and more motorists are catching on that winter tires play an essential role during the cold season, when using the proper winter tire makes all the difference on icy or snowy roads as well as on cold pavement. Which winter tire is the best? It’s not as simple as recommending one specific brand or model. The best advice we can give to motorists who are puzzled by all those tires on the market is to go and see a local tire dealer who advertises many brands. The shop’s technicians will be able to tell you which tire is best suited to your car or truck and to your style of driving. For example, motorists living in very snowy areas will probably need winter tires with a much more aggressive tread design.

Even then, the recommendation will depend on whether the car or truck is front-, rear-, or all-wheel drive. People who do a lot of highway driving will be shown specific tires that might not display large and deep grooves; tires for that kind of driving are more likely to feature an intricate design crated to sip the water from the top layer of the ice on the road so that the tire can reach the drier part of that ice for the best traction possible. Some motorists might not be aware that their new cars are equipped with performance wheels and tires. Gone are the days of the good old “snow grips”. Today’s winter tires are so specialized that the best move is to get advice from an experienced tire technician.

Whether you like it or not, October is here, harkening the return of Old Man Winter as the trees get bare and the days ever shorter. Yes, this means once again having to prepare your car or light truck for the cold season. Luckily for us, today’s vehicles are better built than ever. They are also much more reliable. Unluckily for us, that is exactly why few motorists really take the time to properly maintain their cars and trucks. In the best cases, owners simply drop the vehicle off at the

tires. More and more Canadian drivers are getting the picture that winter tires are a necessity for cold-weather driving. A car owner can also do his or her own part in preparing their vehicle by washing and preparing the body with a good wax job and putting a little oil on some body parts here and there. Those who plan to keep their vehicle for the long haul will have its underbody and structure treated with a rust inhibitor. Don’t doubt it for a second: caring for your vehicle before winter is the best way to make it last.

R0011316377_0322

By RYLAND COYNE rcoyne@perfprint.ca

EMC Entertainment – Comedian Steve Patterson will keeping it real when he performs at the Brockville Arts Centre next week. “I like to base it (performance) on real things and real facts,” he told the St. Lawrence EMC last week. Family, his Irish upbringing, his marriage, the U.S. election, even the Canadian men’s soccer team’s tough 8-1 loss to Honduras in World Cup qualifying – everything will be on the table for this Canadian funny man during his 90-minute one-man show ‘This Is Not Debatable’. (His solution, by the way, for the national team’s challenges is to have Canada’s Olympic bronze medal-winning women’s squad tackle the male opposition from now on). Patterson has been the host of the CBC’s ‘The Debaters’ for close to five years, but it’s on stage, live in front of an audience, where he’s most at home. His quick wit and ‘clean’ sense of humour saw him named Canada’s top male stand-up comedian at last year’s Canadian Comedy Awards. “It’s nice when your peers think you’re funny too,” he said. “You always want the respect of other people doing what you’re doing. I’m very proud of it.”

The world of stand-up is what he calls a “notoriously competitive field,” one that requires a constant updating of performances and material. Patterson, like so many of his peers, is most at home on stage and finds no shortage of subjects at which to poke fun and share with his audience. “I love it. I think most doing it do…it’s where people are most comfortable actually,” he said. “I wouldn’t call it nervous anymore…this is their happy place.” How Patterson came to this point in his career some might find funny as well. “It’s been a long, different road for me,” he admitted. After earning a full scholarship to Osgoode Law School in Toronto, he soon realized a life in the courts was not for him. He shifted focus and school, attending the University of Western Ontario from where he graduated with a degree in Business. It was during these years that he found his comfort zone, giving business presentations as part of program projects. He worked as an advertising copy writer upon graduation and eventually found his true calling in stand-up comedy when he lost his job in the late 1990s for making a particular spot on amusement parks ‘too amusing.’ “I’ve definitely taken the longer road to success with

stand-up for sure, but I like it,” he said. And he still dabbles in his former career, saying he does “a lot of shows for businesses” including a recent fundraiser alongside comedian Dana Carvey. His work in comedy has taken him around the world including the United Kingdom, the U.S., Australia as well as the United Arab Emirates. He took over as host of The Debaters on CBC from Shaun Majumder back in 2007 and says he loves the chance to work with other comedians across the country on radio and TV. The Debaters attracts a weekly audience of 750,000 on CBC Radio. “It’s been a great gig,” he said. But it’s on stage where he’s most comfortable and best able to offer his view of the world around him. “People trust and know me enough now and know what to expect,” he said. “It’s edgy but not dirty.” Patterson’s looking forward to learning more about Brockville when he comes to town next Friday, Nov. 2. Call the BAC box office for ticket information: 613-342-7122 or 877-342-7122. Showtime is 8 p.m. For more info, pics and comedy clips, visit www.shantero.com or www.stevepatterson.ca.

FROM YOUR FIRE DEPARTMENT FALL AND WINTER IS UPON US Fall is here and it’s time to ask yourself, “Is my heating system healthy?” Your furnace, fireplace, or woodstove, and chimneys need annual checkups to ensure they operate safely and efficiently. Heating appliances and accessories should be cleaned and inspected annually (as required) to prevent fires and deadly carbon monoxide gas in your home. It’s time for a check-up! Contact a qualified service technician to clean and inspect your heating system(s). Lastly—Smoke Alarms, “It’s the Law”. Smoke Alarms must be installed and maintained on each storey of a dwelling unit that does not contain a sleeping area. This is in addition to having a smoke alarm outside all sleeping areas.

ST. LAWRENCE EMC - Thursday, October 25, 2012 23


NEWS

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

Film focused on psychopaths hard to gauge My Take MARK HASKINS

and that’s it. It’s also about his friend Billy (Sam Rockwell) who’s an actor and a dognapper. Billy is trying to help Marty, but then he takes Charlie’s (Woody Harrelson) dog. Charlie is the local gangster and a complete psychopath. He’s determined to get his dog back and kill anyone involved. The film is an odd combination of Marty writing his

script, Seven Psychopaths, and it actually happening to him. While Marty, Billy and Billy’s dognapping partner Hans (Christopher Walken) are on the run from Charlie, they’re also trying to finish Marty’s script. There’s this kind of merger as reality crosses over into Marty’s script and Marty’s script crosses over into reality. The film has no shortage of

psychopaths. You have Charlie of course, and the masked vigilante killing members of the mafia. There’s the nut that answers the ad Billy posted for psychopaths to come share their stories. Hans turns out to be an Amish psychopath, and you can’t forget Billy who’s also a nut case. To say this film has an odd collection of characters goes beyond understatement. Attempting to puzzle it out might bring on its own kind of madness. In the end I suppose Seven Psychopaths is about friendship, good and evil, and maybe Heaven and Hell. It’s kind of a comedy, or at least it has funny moments. Though they’re the kind of funny mo-

ments that leave you feeling a little uncomfortable. There’s surprisingly little violence for a movie with seven psychopaths in it, but the violence that does happen is shocking and horrific. Most of the film is about a character gaining a better understanding of the others. The film really attempts to make these psychopaths human and sort of likeable. It’s equal parts compelling and disturbing. Which I think makes it more disturbing. The performances are just as compelling and disturbing as the story. Which I think makes them good. Collin Farrell plays a great drunken screenwriter. Sam Rockwell

gives the kind of convincing performance that makes you want to take him off your ‘stars I’d like to have dinner with’ list. Christopher Walken goes from likeable old man to terrifying old man in the blink of an eye. Woody Harrelson rounds things out with a performance of a stereotypical violent psychopath who is anything but stereotypical. I’m still not sure what I thought about Seven Psychopaths. It’s definitely one of the most unique films I’ve seen. I think this is the kind of film you’ll just have to see for yourself. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

MOVIE: Seven Psychopaths STARRING: Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson DIRECTOR: Martin McDonagh RATING: 18A EMC Entertainment - Seven Psychopaths is... well... it’s... the truth is I’m not sure what it is. I’m still trying to figure out if I even liked it. I think the one thing I can say about it is that it was different. It was definitely different. This is the story of Marty (Colin Farrell) who’s an alcoholic screenwriter struggling with his latest script. He’s got the title, Seven Psychopaths,

Enjoy a good fright near Athens this Saturday

TRILLIUM From page 10

Submitted photo

A friendly mix of ghouls, goblins, ghosts and zombies are ready to welcome one and all this Saturday. She says she spends “plenty of hours� on the internet coming up with new ideas to put new scares into her visitors. “It is free and I have been told to charge admission but I didn’t want to do that, so I now have started asking for

donations to the Food Bank. Last year we had our car full of food,� she notes. Halladay says none of it would be possible without the help of friends who come Friday night and all day Saturday to help build walls and hang

projects. “As for size versus amount, financial reporting and how grant reporting, it depends on each organization and the request,� said Attwood. “My colleague, Sayyida Jaffer, and I try to speak with each organization before they submit a request so that we can support them through the process and understand each unique situation. Sayyida recently held an information session with some local organizations involved in the Kingston Multicultural Festival. We are hoping to hear more from them in the near future. “I would encourage interested organizations to look at our website at www.otf.ca and then contact myself at 613-530-3863 or sattwood@ otf.ca

to go to the website, determine whether or not they might be reasonable candidates, then examine the program guides and discover how to make their application. A goal of OTF is to be as accessible and helpful as they can be to all community groups and organizations, regardless of ethnicity, origin or language. They understand that for some filling out an application may be highly confusing, and they are more than eager to help. Some organizations are also afraid that they may not be allowed to apply for larger grants if the centres they live in are too small. They fear that they will be limited and therefore unable to compete for funding for bigger

lights, only to tear them all down on Sunday. “A lot of work for one night but it is worth it. I have a bonfire outside for everyone that is waiting in line as it is usually very cold,� she says.

EMC Entertainment - An Athens-area family invites one and all to their frightfully delightful haunted house at 500 County Road 5 N., Athens, this Saturday night. Angie Halladay and her family have been inviting the public to their home each Halloween for the past 10 years and this weekend is no different. A fun project that started small 11 years ago has ballooned in recent years and now welcomes more than 150 people for this one spooktacular night (starting at 7 p.m). “We have our group of guests that have come once and then have never missed one. It is in our shop and we have a group of 10-12 adults that dress up and are placed where I have them in the shop,� Halladay notes in an email to the EMC.

Flu season fast approaching

Photo by DOREEN BARNES

produced each year to protect against the three strains of influenza most commonly circulating during the flu season. Pregnant women are recommended to receive the influenza vaccine. Children between the ages of 6 months and nine years may need to get a second dose. There are some people for whom the flu shot is not recommended, please check with the Health Unit for more information on this. Vulnerable populations in the community such as very young children, pregnant women, people over 65, and adults and children with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, respiratory, cardiac, kidney disease or cancer are at greater risks for serious complications from

the flu. The flu shot is the safest way to protect yourself and your family and friends from the influenza virus. The vaccine protects about 70 percent of people who get a flu shot. However, the protection rate in seniors is less, as their immune systems are weaker. Some people may still get the flu but being vaccinated will help to reduce the severity of their symptoms. The flu vaccine does not contain live virus therefore it can’t give you the flu. Most people have no reaction to having a flu vaccine while some report having tenderness at the injection site for a few days. After receiving a flu shot some people may have a mild fever, feel tired, or have muscle aches -- this is considered a normal reaction

to having a vaccination. It is not the flu. Getting immunized against influenza is easy, convenient, and free. See your health care provider or attend one of the Health Unit’s community flu clinics. There are 17 community clinics being held this year from Nov. 1 to Dec. 13. The clinics are offered in 14 communities and have convenient hours. For more information about the flu and for a listing of free flu shot community clinics, contact the Health Unit at 1-800-660-5853 or 613-345-5685 or visit our web site at www.healthunit. org/clinics or like the Health Unit on Facebook for important updates.

EMC News - Prior to the Thousand Islands Writers Festival on Sunday, Oct. 13, members of the Brockville Infantry Company 1862 marched into the historic courtroom in the Brockville Court House to recognize the first Major General Sir Isaac Brock Day, hero of the War of 1812. Infantry member Brian Porter (left) reads the preamble to Bill 35, initiated by Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark. October 13 is officially MajorGeneral Sir Isaac Brock Day in Ontario.

EMC News - Influenza is a preventable illness that can be very dangerous to some individuals. Because influenza is extremely contagious and can spread rapidly from person to person, it is important for individuals to protect themselves as well as others in the community: Get a flu shot, wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, keep frequently touched hard surfaces clean and disinfected, cover your cough, and stay home when you are sick. Flu vaccine provides adults and children with active immunity against the influenza virus. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit recommends annual immunization against influenza for any persons over 6 months of age. A new flu vaccine is

Auctioneer Reynolds Vandervelde, of Town ‘n Country Auctions, volunteered his time to head up a fund-raising auction at North Augusta’s Sanrose Kennel on Oct. 21. The auction, which featured a backyard full of goods donated by the community, was held to raise money for ‘Brutus’ the bull mastiff, a breeding dog and beloved pet of Sanrose Kennel owner Sandy Ringrose.

Housing market gliding lower notes BMO Economics broadly similar trick, rising a seasonally adjusted 6.5 per cent from August, but down 4.2 per cent year-over-year. “Bottom line is still that the market balance is shifting in the buyer’s favour: the months’ supply of homes for sale nudged down to a seasonally-adjusted 6.4 in the month - from 6.6 in August - but that’s well up from the March low of 5.6 and a fiveyear average of about 6,” noted Porter. Laura Parsons, Mortgage Expert, BMO Bank of Montreal, noted that the recent shift to a buyers market should be greeted with optimism by those who have been waiting on the sidelines over the past year. “The increase in homes for sale is good news for those who have been waiting for the right opportunity to dip their toes into the housing market,” said Ms. Parsons. “With another busy buying season upon us, it’s important that potential buyers review their financial plans and make the necessary adjustments to reflect changes in the marketplace before heading out to property shop during the busy fall period.” Parsons recommended that those who are ready to enter to marketplace get a head start on planning by getting pre-approved for a mortgage before setting out to lock down the perfect home. The analysis from BMO Eco-

nomics also implied that while slower market conditions are tempering prices, this trend isn’t playing out in all markets. “Average prices were just 1.1 per cent above year-ago levels in September, but the more-representative MLS Home Price Index (HPI) was still up 3.9 per cent, though it has now slipped slight-

EMC Business - While today’s Canadian home sales numbers for September from the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) suggested a significant drop, the details are not nearly as weak, according to BMO Economics. The CREA stats show sales were down 15.1 per cent from year-ago levels last month, but up 2.5 per cent from August in seasonally adjusted terms. “The issue here is that there were just 20 weekdays this September, compared with 22 a year ago,” said Doug Porter, Deputy Chief Economist, BMO Capital Markets. “That 9 per cent drop alone accounts for a big chunk of the year-on-year decline. Still, while the underlying trend in sales is likely not as dire as the headline yearly drop would suggest, there is little doubt that sales have taken a step back in recent months.” Porter added that September marked the second full month under stricter mortgage rules that took effect July 9, and in the past three months combined sales are down about 7 per cent from year-ago levels, compared with a rise of nearly 5 per cent year-over-year in the first six months of the year. Among major Canadian cities, 18 of 26 reported better sales versus August, yet only 3 were up from year-ago levels (Calgary, Edmonton and Sherbrooke). New listings pulled a

acrylics. “I never owned a colouring book and I’ve painted all of my life on paper and things that I could find to draw on,” said Sherman. “My paint box that I use now I’ve used since I was 12 years old.” Painting to Sherman is part of his life, like breathing. “Art to me is a form of expression that is as valid as reading and writing. I’ve always preferred visual imagery as my major way to express my ideas. As a matter of fact, my argument in education, I gave workshops right across Ontario, was that visual imagery is the first language of all children. Through the course of educating them (children) they move further and further away from a belief that they created.” He also considers that it is only the point in our lives when families become empty nesters that people, especially women, start to think ‘I always thought I could and wonder if I might’? “My point is art is a journey, not a destination and it is

never too late to start it and it is never too late to get better at it, but do not compare your art to other artists,” said Sherman. “I do it (art) for pleasure. I do it because I have a passion for it. I do it because I have to do it, the same as I eat. It’s just who I am.” As a resource, an enabler/ teacher for about 30 years, art has always been a vehicle for him as this is how he lives his life and continues to share his ideas. Sherman doesn’t compete with other painters, as he paints for himself. Nor does he compare himself to other artists. He doesn’t have to because he’s comfortable with who he is. “I truly believe if people can write their name, I can teach them to paint,” added Sherman. During Sherman’s career he has worked with developmentally disadvantaged children, inner city schools in the North and became a visual art consultant. His work in devising a technique for creating commemorative postal stamp art

has been used in schools all across Canada. “I don’t do it (paint) for money,” he explained. “It is about linkage because I believe the arts and children are the two best things we leave when we go (die).” On display during the two day showing at the Eagle Point Winery, Sherman will have a variety of Thousand Islands views, historic buildings and Nova Scotia scenes. The Paint Box Gallery is located on Front Street, Rockport, telephone number (613) 659-3925 for check hours of operation and you can visit Sherman’s blog at http://awbrucesherman.blogspot.ca/ as well as a website, http://www. thepaintboxgallery.ca. Balleycanoe and Co. - John Sorensen Known as specializing in 19th century rural architectural salvage, John Sorensen had also restored antiques and is curious about a lot of different things. Sorensen has been a participant on the art tours as an individual who used architec-

tural elements to create mirrors, shelves and more. “I love art and used to go to art shows,” said Sorensen. “I sketch, scribble and draw pictures endlessly. So Sorensen entered the world of oil painting about eight years ago when his wife, Molly gave him a gift, as interest (painting) class with Andrea Mossop Green. “I came into it with an interest in shading, texture and colour being around painted country furniture and folk art,” indicated Sorensen. “That sorta got me started. Then a number of years ago Molly and started taking ballroom dancing. When I started to paint I thought I should paint things I know and feel. So I started painting people dancing and it became my vehicle to learn more about painting. It’s been my continual theme (dancing). My style of painting is representational and loose with strong colours.” Sorensen also paints interior scenes, taking his lead from an idea he has in his mind. “I did the Food and Wine a couple of times and this will

be my third art show,” said Sorensen. “I also display my work at my work shop and business.” Sorensen paints with Jazz, Tango, Swing or Rock and Roll music in the background, any music that has a strong beat to it. “I don’t paint in a conventional way, I tend to paint with the rhythm of the music and I paint with my right and left hand,” explained Sorensen. “My brush strokes tend to go into the rhythm.” Something else that Sorensen will be introducing at this particular show will be found objects. “Things that are natural and something that you might paint,” stated Sorensen. “I have an early 1900s birdhouse with six entrances that looks like two eyes and a mouth.

Campaign focuses on promoting early brain development EMC News - When it comes to brain development, parents of young children sometimes have questions. How can I help my three-year-old cope with emotions? How can I help my baby’s brain to develop well? Should my baby watch the socalled “brain development” videos? The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit endorses this provincial campaign to help parents support their young child’s brain development. The central element of the campaign is a new website:www.HealthyBabyHealthyBrain.ca. The website gives future parents and parents of children aged zero to three answers to their questions on brain development. It offers inexpensive, practical suggestions through short videos on topics such as nutrition, sleep, play, physical activity, attachment, self-regulation, discipline and stress. The videos show real-life situations that were filmed with families from Ontario. Experts offer simple advice for parents, based on proven practices. The website also contains links to useful resources. The videos’ key messages remind parents that all of the little things they do every day with their baby impacts their development. Helping a baby develop a secure attachment is one of the most important things a parent can do. When babies feel secure, they are more able to learn from their environment. To find out more about early brain development, visit: www. HealthyBabyHealthyBrain. ca.

Ongoing winter tire ads can become tiring EMC Lifestyle - Recently we discussed an Ontario report on pedestrian deaths caused by vehicle collisions and a reader has forwarded some helpful information‌ Dear Brian Turner: Re Pedestrian Death Review: clothing is an important factor. For those averse to wearing garments (all of them) with reflective stripes, Mountain Equipment Coop sells a reflective sash, in two colours, orange and green, cheap and folds up smaller than an envelope. When I wear them in large cities, such as Boston, you can hear cars stopping for kilometers around as I come up to a crossing. And of course you are confused for a crossing guard, which adds an extra whammy. And they are perfect for bicycling as well. Best, Stan Segel, Kingston I checked online (www. mec.ca) and the ‘Cactus Creek Safety Sash’ is actually available in three colours for only $9.75 plus tax and is stocked in Ottawa. The colour that Stan didn’t mention was black, which might seem odd for a reflective device, but it would blend in better for those that want to be stylish but it would still act as a reflector when a beam of light hits it. By now you can be excused if you’re tired of hearing winter tire ads in between every

song on the radio and if your back hurts from lifting a recycle bin overflowing with related flyers and newspaper spots. But as winter seems to catch a good percentage of drivers off guard, maybe a few words on the topic wouldn’t be unseasonable. Four Not Two: On today’s front-wheel, all-wheel, and rear-wheel light weight vehicles, putting just two snow tires on may be worse than plowing through winter on all-season (read summer) tires. With front-wheel drive vehicles, the lack of weight over the rear wheels makes them very susceptible to spin-outs and drifting sideways on poor traction surfaces when there are no snows on the rear. Rear-wheel drive cars and trucks benefit from more precise and predictable steering when there are snows on all four corners. And mismatching snows and summers on an all-wheel drive can cause a host of handling and vibration problems as the variety of all-wheel drive control systems out there try to cope with tires with mismatching

circumferences and traction levels. Steel vs. Alloy: You’ll notice more and more of your fellow travelers driving on black steel rims this winter and that option can make sense for many drivers. First, using snow tires already mounted on their own rims saves the dismounting, mounting and rebalancing labour twice a year which can average around $200 annually. Secondly it saves expensive alloy wheels from the harshness of our winter roads that can leave them scarred with salt pitting and peeling clear-coat finishes. And of course steel rims are much cheaper to replace after losing a confrontation with a curb. But the financial advantages can vanish if you buy a set of steels for a vehicle you’re planning on trading in within a year or two for it’s always a testament to Murphy’s Law that your current ride won’t take the same rims and tires as your next one. Lost Sensation? The overwhelming majority of vehicles on the road today have a tire pressure monitoring system

which uses sensors built into the tire’s valve stems. Even now that aftermarket and jobber manufacturers are supplying these parts, they can be rather pricey at an average of $60 each. For this reason many car owners choose not to equip their winter rims with tire pressure sensors. The downside to this is that you’ve deactivated a safety system, but that can be overcome with a simple tire pressure gauge and the willingness to bend down once or twice a month and check your tire pressures manually. But recently I’ve heard from an enterprising independent tech, (Kim Seveny from Brinston) who has discovered that on some high-end vehicles, deleting these sensors from your winter tire may affect traction control systems. He mentioned that on at least one late-model

Lexus he’s worked on, the traction control computer monitors the tire pressure sensors as well as a number of other systems and the absence of a signal from the tires will stop the traction system from working properly, if at all. So before you make the call to forgo sensors on your winter tires, check with your service provider on the consequences. Make Shopping Easy: Before picking up the phone, or logging onto your favourite tire retailer’s website, grab a pad and pen and take down some info from your vehicle. Record the complete tire size which is found on the sidewall of the tire in a format like this: P225/65R16 or LT265/75R18 (for trucks). Compare this number with the tire label found on the driver’s door jam or in the glove box of your ve-

hicle. If they don’t match, stick with the carmakers recommendation on the info label. Most vehicles had several tire size options from the carmaker and your retailer will need to know your auto’s specific size. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@ perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@hotmail.com listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, Ont. K7A 4T1]. When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I can’t always promise replies). Yours in service Brian Turner

Prescott cadet squadron remains focused on community service EMC News - 661 Lt W.F. Sharpe Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets has kicked off its 2012-2013 training year with many exciting events for area youth. Training and events over the early part of this fall have focused largely on community service with several unique training opportunities for its members to take part in as well. The cadets at 661 Squadron were busy during the month of September serving their local community. Taking part in a range of opportunities, cadets were keen to volunteer their time at the Spencerville Fair, Terry Fox Run and Bottom Line Food Bank Challenge. Training events throughout September and October have been equally rewarding. Cadets have had the opportunity to experience flight in a glider at the Brockville airport, begin learning new skills during band, marksmanship and orienteering practices and take part in a large aircrew survival exercise alongside close to 100 cadets and staff during an event held in conjunction with Brockville and Smiths Falls Air Cadet squadrons. With so many unique experiences it’s no wonder why membership at 661 Squadron continues to grow with close

provided free of charge. Thinking of joining in on the fun? In addition to regular training sessions (Tuesdays from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at South Grenville District High School), and optional practices for music, marksmanship and sports teams, upcoming events are set to include participation in several area remembrance related services and the Prescott Fire Department’s ‘Light Up the Night’ Christmas parade. Interested youth and their parents are encouraged to visit us on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at SGDHS. Additional information can be obtained by visiting the squadron’s website at www. aircadets.ca/661. Submitted by 661 Lt. W.F. Sharpe air cadet squadron. Submitted photo

EMC Entertainment From Oct. 30 to Nov. 4, accomplished veteran actor Carolyn Hetherington presents and performs her new one-woman show, Women Who Shout at the Stars: My Mother, My Nanny and Me at the Thousand Islands Playhouse Firehall Theatre in Gananoque. Directed by Kathryn MacKay, with dramaturgy by playwright Judith Thompson and lighting by Tim Fort, Women Who Shout at the Stars is a story of three strong, passionate women

bound together by tragedy, determination and love – remembered by Hetherington with deep affection and a dash of irreverent humour. The play travels from Canada to England and back again, as Carolyn portrays her dramatic mother, her devoted nanny, and herself with stories ranging from her mother Gwen’s star-crossed relationship with the famous dancer Vernon Castle to nanny Edie’s determination to hold the family together.

After all, she was just doing her job. All other roles in the production are played by Willow Kean and Robert Wyatt Thorne, beautifully rounding out the cast and filling the stage with a series of charming characters, all unique and endearing. Costumes are kept simple, with all of the players dressed in white, and the entire set dressing consisting of a simple dining room with carpeted floor, a sturdy wooden table

After all, these are the tales one tells at meals, the gossip and the news about that new woman in town and all the things she’s accomplishing. But imagination leaps free and we get drawn irresistibly into a story beyond our widest hopes. “I love Nurse Bennett,” said Gillard-Rowlings of the role. “Even after more than 600 performances, I’m still learning new things about her. Someone will come up to me who knew her personally and

EMC Entertainment When we think of Newfoundland, all sorts of images come to mind – cod fishermen, lobster pots, small boats laden with a heavy catch, canneries, a simple, unsophisticated people who charm and are easily forgotten. “Tempting Providence”, playing at the Springer theatre for a limited engagement from Oct. 10 – 27, wakes us up and gives a powerful look at one of the people from “the rock”. Played beautifully in a truly minimalist style by players from Theatre Newfoundland, the audience is drawn into the story to participate much as a reader with a good book, creating their own ideas of the people, what they looked like, what the scenery is like, even the basic props. The true story of Nurse Myra Bennett (Deidre Gillard-Rowlings), it tells of how this lonely, brave, highly competent yet personally insular young woman emigrated from England to Newfoundland in 1921. She had originally planned to got to Saskatchewan under the outport nursing scheme, but was convinced by Lady Harris of the far greater need for her services in Daniel’s Harbour. Signing on for a stay on only two or three years, she fell in love with the province, its people and Angus Bennett (Darryl Hopkins), whom she married and remained faithful to for the rest of her life. Born on April 1, 1890, in London, England, she died on April 26, 1990, in Daniel’s Harbour, where she accomplished far more than most people could dream of. Over the course of her life she was awarded the King George V Silver Jubilee Medal, the King George VI Coronation Medal, the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Medal, made a Member of the Order of the British Empire as well as a member of the Order of Canada, granted an honourary membership in the Association for Registered Nurses of Newfoundland and received a Doctor of Science, Honoris Causa, from the Memorial University of Newfoundland.

Volunteer driver understands anxiety, issues cancer can create By GENA GIBSON Canadian Cancer Society

EMC News - The people who Bob Johnston drives to cancer appointments can spend a few hours at the hospital, and when they finish, they know that someone is

waiting to drive them home. Johnston, a Brockville-area resident, is one of the many volunteer drivers in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville counties who lend their time to the Canadian Cancer Society’s transportation program. Many

of the drivers are retired, like Johnston, and have a personal connection with cancer that prompted them to get involved with the Canadian Cancer Society. Johnston is a prostatecancer survivor. Although he

didn’t need to use the volunteer-driver service, as his cancer was treated with surgery and hormones, he later learned about the program from a friend who drove patients to cancer treatments. As a retiree, he decided a year

ago that he had time to help out with the Prescott branch of the cancer society. “I had a very good experience (during his cancer treatment),� he said. “I’ve listened to some...who are a lot younger than I am, and are having

BOB JOHNSTON VOLUNTEER DRIVER

Johnston most often drives patients to Kingston or Ottawa, staying at the hospital during the treatments. He said the treatment time can vary so he makes sure he has enough reading material to get him through the day. Johnston had nothing but praise for the volunteer-driver program supported by the Canadian Cancer Society’s fundraising initiatives – including the Wheels of Hope campaign that raises money directly for the transportation program. “I think it’s good,� he stressed. “It’s helpful for people, and it gives me something to do.� The Wheels of Hope campaign runs from September to December. The average cost of taking one patient to a round-trip appointment is $60, with the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit filling 3,909 requests for drivers and driving 318,212 kilometres to take 1,032 local clients to appointments in 2011. That cost more than $93,500 last year. The local Canadian Cancer Society can use volunteer drivers in all areas of the three counties, in particular Smiths Falls, Kemptville and Rideau Lakes. To learn more, call the unit office at 613-267-1058. If you would like to donate money to help get a local cancer patient to their cancer treatments you can call (613) 267-1058 or 1 800 367-2913 or contribute online at www. cancer.ca/perth.

EMC Entertainment - As part of the Desjardins Concerts 2012-2013, Fort Town Concert Association is proud to present Guitar Nomads trio formed by Alexandre Éthier, Dan Livingstone and Stéphane Tellier. They will perform at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (Centre and Dibble streets) Friday, Nov. 2, 8 p.m. This tour will take the ensemble to many cities throughout West Quebec and Ontario. Their mission is to captivate all those who hear their music, and to introduce listeners to another dimension of the guitar. There’s no style they won’t tackle: from French “manouche” to New Orleans blues and Spanish classical guitar – these three nomads transcend musical borders, and invite you to do the same. Spirited and strongwilled, the wanderers leave just as easily as they arrived… but with your heart captured behind the six strings of their guitars. Through this musical journey, the audience will first be hypnotized by the rhythms and chords of Montagne SainteGeneviève, a signature work of the “manouche” style by Django Reinhardt. One will also discover – or rediscover – some more classical pieces by composers such as Manuel de Falla, Antonio Lauro and Frédéric Chopin. One will then make an incursion into the blues with pieces such as “Last Steam Engine Train” by John Fahey. In conclusion, a few of these nomads’ own compositions as well as traditional pieces will take everyone into these exceptional guitarists’ musical world. B i o g r a p h i e s Founded in 2009, the Guitar Nomads Trio is made up of three great friends and col-

laborators. Combining a variety of musical styles—from “manouche” to fingerstyle to Spanish classical guitar—this trio of extraordinary virtuosos has created a new genre by blending its members’ respective styles. Manouche guitarist Stéphane Tellier is known for having played solo guitar on the score to the film The Triplets of Belleville, as well as for his work with a number of musicians from Quebec and Canada. His solo album was top ranked on the sales charts in the World Music category at Archambault. Dan Livingstone is recognized on stages throughout Canada and the U.S. for his distinctive style and his indepth knowledge of ragtime music. With more than 1,000 concerts under his belt, Dan Livingstone is without a doubt one of Canada’s greatest fingerstyle guitarists. Alexandre Éthier, founder and Artistic Director of the Forestare ensemble – which won a Félix Award in the Instrumental Music category in 2007 – is one of the busiest classical guitarists on the Canadian scene. With three musicians of this exceptional calibre, the Guitar Nomads Trio has captivated its audiences from the very beginning. In 2010, they appeared at several festivals, bars, and performance halls across Québec. Shows are always a sell-out, and the audience always asks for more. The trio recorded its first CD in 2011. The Prescott concert, sponsored by the Town of Prescott, is presented by the Fort Town Concert Association and Jeunesses Musicales of Ontario. Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for students. Children 12 and under are free. For more information, call 613-925-5050 or 613-925-0737.

Brockville and District Hospital Foundation Signature and Third Party Events What is the Foundation’s Signature Event? The Friends of Palliative Care Golf Tournament is the Foundation’s signature event. This premier golf tournament will have raised close to $2,000,000 when it celebrates its 20th Anniversary next year. The Gala held in 2010 is another example of a signature event. What is a third party event? Third party events are those created and hosted by community individuals and groups to raise funds. Each event targets a specific equipment or program need. How important are third party events? The Foundation relies on the support and generosity of our community groups to host events that not only fundraise for specific needs within BGH, but also raise awareness about the equipment or service in need of support.

Rosedale Retirement residents involved in the community each person with a smile and ask how they are doing. On average, Carroll has about 12 deliveries per week which can include specific dietary needs. Those requirements are communicated via a colour coding on his routing list. Rosedale residents can accompany Carroll on his deliveries if they so wish. In fact a person was to accompany Carroll last week, but that person opted for a trip to see the fall foliage and will go with Carroll in the future. “The ultimate goal is to have residents come along,” said Carroll.

EMC News – The Rosedale Retirement Centre believes in being community minded and encourages the mature adult to be active and take part. “The main priority for Rosedale, itself, and Chartwell, the owner, is to find an opportunity for residents to be involved in the community,” said Rosedale Retirement Centre sales and marketing manager Ryan Carroll, “but also to be a supportive corporate citizen.” According to Carroll there are a couple of things at Rosedale that the public may not know about. Each Thursday, like clockwork a committee of ladies comes together at 10:45 a.m., to package cookies (usually two per packet), ready for drop-off at the Community and Primary Health Care Service (CPHC), 333 California Avenue, Unit 12, Brockville.

These cookies, prepared and baked at Rosedale, are given to individuals who receive frozen meals, a food program run by CPHC. The cookies range from chocolate chip, vanilla, and double chocolate chip to oatmeal raisin and there’s always something different. “The feedback from CPHC is that the cookies are well received,” said Carroll. The ladies make sure the 50 cookie packets are labeled, tied with a ribbon and carefully placed in the ‘blue top cookie bin’ for Carroll to take with him for delivery. “We (Rosedale) are part of the CPHC Meals on Wheels program,” said Carroll. “My job is to go to the Brockville General Hospital (BGH) to get my cooler with hot meals, the Meals on Wheels routing list, then I visit each home.” While delivering each prepared meal to Brockville residents, Carroll tries to greet

Rotating menu By chance, Thursday, Oct. 18, Caroline Brinkert, CPHC Meals on Wheel coordinator and service assistant, met Carroll at BGH to start his new downtown route. According to Brinkert, the meals are on a rotating menu which includes, soup, roll, entrée and dessert which are prepared at the hospital. The Meals on Wheel programs are also available in Prescott, Athens, Gananoque and Brockville. “In Brockville on Mondays, we deliver frozen meals,” said Brinkert. “In Portland they only have frozen meals. There are freezers in our office where we store the food. People can also walk into the office to buy frozen food. We do not deliver Meals on Wheels on weekends.” More volunteers are needed and if anyone is interested, please contact Brinkert at 613342-3693.

Every Thursday at 10:45 a.m., after the exercise class at Rosedale Retirement Centre, the cookie volunteers come together to bag, label and tie each packet of cookies with a ribbon to be given to the Community and Primary Health Care Service to accompany the frozen meals which are distributed in Brockville. Jeannine McCaw (left) and Marion Booth (right) were taking care of the cookies this week with help from Doreen Perry, who was at another table. Normally Helen Throop would head up this program but she was away on a fall foliage tour.

plied “it has helped me greatly.” “I don’t have to get my own meals,” added Brown. “I’m 92 years old.” Although Brown has limited mobility, that does not stop her from driving, visiting the library for large print books, joining in activities and checking her Facebook page on the internet. “I do not Twitter,” she quickly added. Brown did say that she’s not a big fan of Brussels sprouts, but admitted they are good for her, so she eats them. She would recommend this meal plan to anyone. In addition to hot meals, Brown also orders frozen meals for the other days. Brown also goes to the Diner’s Club, confessing that she eats everything and believes in a hearty breakfast. Although these two programs, cookie and Meals on Wheels, seem like great successes, Carroll is hoping to see more Rosedale and community efforts take place. “We are a very active community,” he said. “We want to have and to see more of this where people are out, involved and have that contribution. For instance we have a group of eight ladies who are involved in a knitting program run by the Canadian Red Cross.” The Canadian Red Cross volunteers bring in the supplies needed and work with the knitters to make toques, mittens and lap blankets for distribution to the community. “It gives the ladies a social opportunity and then again they are contributing,” said Carroll. “That’s one of the big issues for us…letting people know that retirement living is not being disengaged from the community.” For Rosedale the hope is to keep residents keenly connected with the Brockville community and let them know that there are opportunities for them to become involved and stay involved. As well, to let the community know that residents want to contribute in any way they can. “We want to be involved in fundraising and community giving as that’s critical for what we do, with the residents,” said Carroll. “What I would like people to know about Rosedale is that we have a community that is active and are very much part of the greater community of Brockville. We have entertainers come in here regularly, an exercising group, Wii bowling, pet therapy, nail therapy, card playing, tours, shopping and there is always something on the go. For instance we are going to have a colouring contest here for the elementary schools and the residents will be judging.” Carroll also mentioned that they have a co-op student working at Rosedale to experience what it is like to live in a residence. “It’s important to have the different age groups visit,” said Carroll.

Eileen Gladys VanDusen Passed away peacefully at the Brockville General Hospital, Garden Street Site, in the very early hours of Saturday, September 29, 2012. An only child, born on August 24, 1923 in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England, she came to Canada with her parents in 1927 and they settled at Lemoine Point, Kingston where her father had secured work on a farm. They moved to Mallorytown in 1930 and remained for six years until they moved again in 1936. This time her father William Levett and her mother Ester (Spicer), had bought a farm on the #2 Highway (now known as 1631 County Road 2). She attended both public and high school at the Mallorytown Consolidated School and was a high school graduate. When she was 21 years old she joined the Mallorytown United Church and in the fall of 1944, she and Arthur Lloyd VanDusen were married there on the 28th of October. In 1946 she and Lloyd bought the farm from her father and there they raised their four children – in the same house she had lived in since she was thirteen years old. Eileen was a lover of the land and life on the farm. She worked beside her husband on the farm and their children, as they grew old enough, helped out as well. If ever complaining of being bored they were offered the job of pulling mustard weeds from the ďŹ eld across the road. Boredom didn’t strike often. Their son Roger remains on the farm to this day. Eileen was always fascinated by nature, by birds and animals and all their habits. She was a homemaker, a gardener, a cook, a baker, she could quilt and sew, sing and paint. She liked to read and to learn. She received her Fine Arts Diploma from St. Lawrence College in 1995 at the age of 72. She sang in the Church Choir for well over ďŹ fty years. Eileen loved “the villageâ€? and all it had to offer, friends and neighbours, Mallorytown United Church, the restaurant, Purcell’s Store, the Library, the Coach House and the many things that used to be there, Buell’s Store, Hodge’s Store, the train station, gas stations, bank, doctor’s ofďŹ ce, telephone ofďŹ ce, Rebekah Lodge, Women’s Institute and on and on. She was a member of or a patron of them all. She was a joiner and a worker and could always be counted on to volunteer, or to bring a pie, decorate a cake, make some cookies, or whatever needed to be donated she would do it. Not one who wanted for great things, she was content in her home and with her life on the farm. Travelling was not something she longed for, with the exception of the desire to return to England. She made two memorable trips to her place of birth, one with a friend and one with her husband. The annual trip to the International Plowing Match was always the highlight of the year and a time of catching up with friends and acquaintances. In their nearly 68 years of marriage Eileen, together with her husband Lloyd, raised four children. Subsequently, all four children were married in the same Church as their parents. The family extended to ten grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren. She enjoyed having family and their many friends drop in, cook for them and hear how they loved the butter tarts and the Christmas “hard sauceâ€? and “soft sauceâ€? – a VanDusen tradition. There was always a sweet treat available on the counter for one and all. It must be noted however, that in the last couple of years, her children began to notice and teased her that some of the “baked goodsâ€? came from a store, obviously not living up to the standard to which we had become accustomed. Eileen is survived by her husband A. Lloyd VanDusen, children; Donna (Reg) Hunt, Carol (Wayne) Hamelin, Roger (Gloria) VanDusen and Connie Boisvert. Also surviving is sister-in-law Shirley Hall (Kyle), her grandchildren, great grandchildren, and a number of nieces, nephews and cousins in Canada and in England. Arrangements were entrusted to the Barclay Funeral Home, Brockville, where The Lyndale Rebekah Lodge, No. 313 held a very touching service for her on Sunday, September 30, 2012. The Funeral Service was held in the Malloytown United Church on Monday, October 1, 2012 with Rev. A. Rose ofďŹ ciating. An eulogy was given by Roger VanDusen. During the service the Mallorytown and Lansdowne combined choirs sang “Amazing Graceâ€? and Gloria VanDusen sang “In the Gardenâ€?. Nine of Eileen’s grandchildren were pallbearers – a tenth who lives a distance away and not able to attend, sent a letter of “memoriesâ€? and had spent a week with Grama just prior to her passing. Interment was at Mallorytown Cemetery followed by lunch in the Church hall. In memoriams to the Mallorytown United Church and various others charities were gratefully received by the family.

EMC Lifestyle - Ryan Murdock first began writing about his travels in a Prescott Journal column called Notes from the Road. His work has been featured extensively in print and visual media, including Toronto’s Eye Weekly and the primetime CTV television show ETalk, Canada’s top-rated entertainment program. Vagabond Dreams is a true story of awakening amongst a cast of fascinating characters at the farthest margins of the map. At its heart is the uncompromising vision of rising beyond one’s self imposed limitations and truly living. Who are you without your boxes? Are you ready to find out? Ryan’s “lyrical, poetic prose” has been described as “creative non-fiction at its best…” Here’s what Amazon reviewers are saying about Vagabond Dreams: “I barely could wait to go from one page to the next – from one adventure to the

next.” - Joanne Harvey “It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book with such a profound effect on me.” Christy “In this world of sound bites and spin doctors this is a refreshingly honest piece of writing [...] From slums with soul-sucking poverty to idyllic tropical beaches the book never lets up. I couldn’t put it down.” - Richard B. Merritt About the Author Ryan Murdock’s pursuit of travel literature has taken him to some of the world’s most unforgiving places, including Mongolia, Tibet, Nicaragua, and North Korea, by Russian jeep, motorcycle, dugout canoe, horse and camel. He is Editor-at-Large (Europe) and a main feature writer for Outpost, Canada’s national travel magazine.

EMC Sports - Marjorie Bellem of Smiths Falls (left) and Ron Harrison of Brockville carefully measure out the distance of the bowls from the jack Oct. 11 inside

the Smiths Falls Seniors Centre. The carpet bowling games were part of the 2012 District 9 Winter Senior Games.

Culp, June’s performances overshadowed by pair of losses to Morrisburg teams EMC Sports - The two oldest players on the Island City Blackhawks, ‘The Ageless Wonder’ Peter Culp and ‘Youngblood’ Jeff June performed like they did in their younger days. Unfortunately the team lost both of their games against the Morrisburg teams, the Chubbs and Flamingos. Both scored big goals against Morrisburg’s finest teams, June’s late goal last Saturday night tied the Chubbs 8-8 before they scored with 15 ticks left in the game to steal the win. The next morning the Hawks couldn’t overcome early deficits and were handed a 5-3 loss for their efforts by the Flamingos. Last Saturday night the Blackhawks hosted the Chubbs in a shootout where it appeared to be last shot wins. And incidentally that’s how the game ended after the visitors won a face-off deep in Blackhawk territory to set the stage for the game winning shot. This game also featured Culp’s Bobby Orr-like coastto-coast rush that saw the elder

statesman split the Chubbs’ defence pair before depositing the black biscuit into the net. Many of the Blackhawk players stated after the game that it was the greatest goal they have ever seen in Blackhawk history. June played his typical in your face hockey and was justly rewarded for his efforts by lighting the lamp twice including the game-tying goal with 6:41 remaining. In the second half of the back-to-back games versus the Morrisburg teams, the Hawks battled hard but came up on the short end of a 5-3 score to the home team Flamingos. The usually dependable Hawks’ goalie Spencer Utman had, by his own admission, a tough weekend. “Our guys certainly played well enough to win both games but it wasn’t to be. Spence looked like he was struggling with his confidence a little, when he gets it back, as a team we’ll be fine. He’s a big part of our team and how we do,” Blackhawk manage-

ment summarized the team’s weekend play. Flamingos 5 Blackhawks 3 It would have been easy to use the excuse that the Blackhawks were tired but the players would have none of it. “Oh sure, it was our second game in 12 hours against two teams that feature young skilled players. In the end we were in both games right until that final buzzer,” management said. “Most of our guys are well into their 40’s and 50’s and yet we always find a way to compete with these much younger teams,” management continued about his Geritol squad. The Hawks trailed 2-1 and 5-3 at the period breaks. Unfortunately the Island City lads still had their fair share of chances to get back into the game but just came up a little short. Both Culp and the injured Mike ‘Lumpy” Mulder scored their fourth goals of the season while call up Luke McCarthur chipped in with his first.

Chubbs 9 Blackhawks 8 The Blackhawks were 15 seconds away from securing their third tie in four games only to lose with a last second shot. The Chubbs from Morrisburg opened the scoring 1:20 into the game and fittingly closed the game with the winning goal in the last few seconds of the contest. The Broadway Avenue Boys overcame a two goal third period deficit to tie the game at 8-8 on June’s goal with just under seven minutes remaining. “That was a hard one to swallow, we definitely played well enough to win this game tonight. It wasn’t one of Spence’s best games in goal for us but thankfully that doesn’t happen too often,” management commented at the podium after the game. When the Hawks tied the game they seemed to dominate the next few shifts but couldn’t find the back of the net. See HAWKS page 55

All tournaments will be held in Canada during the summer months. “We have long recognized the many advantages of joining forces with the PGA TOUR,” Janes said. “It not only brings a new level of stature to Canada’s domestic circuit, it ensures that PGA TOUR Canada will continue to attract the best young professionals and offer the highest level of competition. For developing young Canadian players the opportunity to compete on home soil against top PGA TOUR prospects from around the world is a tremendous advantage.” The PGA TOUR will work with all Canadian media outlets including its television partners, Shaw/Global TV and TSN, to broaden coverage of PGA TOUR Canada. The TOUR also will highlight PGA TOUR Canada through all media resources, including PGATOUR.com and digital platforms. Golf’s popularity in Canada is reflected in an in-depth economic impact study that showed nearly six million Canadians play golf, representing 21.5 per cent of the population, more than double the U.S. participation rate. The PGA TOUR has experienced golf’s popularity first-hand with the annual RBC Canadian Open, the Champions Tour’s Montreal Championship and the highly successful 2007 Presidents Cup at Royal Montreal GC.

sparked the boys for sure. We just couldn’t hold those guys off when we needed to do so at the end of the game. Hopefully our guys can rebound tomorrow morning in Morrisburg,” management stated. The Blackhawks welcomed back Josh ‘KFC’ Brayton back into their lineup and he managed to bulge the twine twice in his first game back. His linemate, the hard-working June, also rippled the corded igloo twice as well. Culp also had a two goal game, other Hawks’ markers were scored by J R ‘Buckleys’ Ryan and ‘The Velvet Fog’ Rob Carter.

EMC Sports - The Home Hardware Novice Rep season has begun. The team began its opening weekend playing Loyalist in Amherstview on Friday night, Sept. 21. The team lost 3-1 in their the first game of the season having some difficulties making passes and engaging the puck. On Saturday the team played in Picton in their second away game. Coach Chuck Bailey made some changes to the forward lines and the boys won 4-1. In a return match up with Picton the next day, in front of a packed hometown crowd, with a few more changes to the lines the boys won 4-0. Coaches Bailey and Rose both credit the improved play to confidence and determination.

“It was a shootout for sure, we’ll move on from here. A lot of our players played well in this game,” management continued during his post game conference. Both teams had their fair share of great scoring opportunities throughout the game. The Island City gang held the first period lead at 4-3. But the Chubby bunch from Morrisburg lit the lamp three times in the second period to head into the third tied 6-6. The Chubbs scored a couple early in the opening minutes of the third period to take control of the game. But wait a minute here, the locals dug down deep and found a way to overcome the 8-6 deficit. Culp’s coast-to-coast goal was the highlight of the season and was the talk of the Blackhawks locker room. “That goal certainly

also consistently ranks second only to the U.S. in traffic to PGATOUR.com. “We view this as a winwin proposition that strengthens an established tour in a country that absolutely loves golf,” Finchem said. “As the tour continues to develop and grow, charitable contributions and the value provided to tournaments sponsors will increase, as well. As for the PGA TOUR, this expands our brand in Canada and gives us geographic integration throughout the Americas in concert with PGA TOUR Latinoamérica.” “We believe that PGA TOUR Canada has an important place in professional golf and will continue to help identify and develop talented players who aspire to one day play on the PGA TOUR,” Finchem said. “With that in mind, it makes sense to give its top players direct access to the Web.com Tour.” Former Canada Tour players have accounted for more than 110 victories on the PGA TOUR, including Canadians Mike Weir, Dave Barr, Dan Halldorson and Ian Leggatt. Other alumni who have PGA TOUR victories include Steve Stricker, Nick Watney, Stuart Appleby, Tim Clark, Bryce Molder, Jason Bohn, Brendan Steele, Craig Parry, Tim Petrovic, to name a few.

EMC Sports - When the Great Waterway Classic returns to the region next year, it will do so as part of the newly-renamed ‘PGA Tour Canada’. After lending strategic and financial support to the Canadian Professional Golf Tour in 2012 and evaluating all aspects of the business, the PGA Tour has agreed to assume operational control of what will become PGA TOUR Canada in 2013. The conversion will begin Nov. 1. Moving forward, the new PGA TOUR division will provide direct access to the Web.com Tour for its leading money winners, based on the final Order of Merit. The top five players will receive playing privileges on the Web. com Tour, while the next five will be exempt into the finals of the Web.com Tour qualifying school. The announcement was made recently by PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem; Pierre Blouin, Chair of the Canadian Tour Board of Directors; and Rick Janes, Commissioner of the Canadian Tour. “Having gained a thorough understanding of the golf landscape in Canada over the course of the 2012 season, we are confident that by fully dedicating our assets and resources, PGA TOUR Canada will be well positioned to play an increasingly important role in professional golf,” Finchem said. “With a solid foundation of existing tournaments along with outstanding opportunities to establish new events, we are confident PGA TOUR Canada will strengthen and grow in the coming years.” “This is the logical next step for the Tour’s sustainability and growth,” Blouin said. “The PGA TOUR provided invaluable assistance throughout the 2012 season and through its evaluation process saw strong potential. Golf is incredibly popular in Canada and PGA TOUR Canada will be a very important part of
