Brockville celebrates Special Olympics with ‘Be A Fan Day’ By DOREEN BARNES EMC News – On Thursday, Oct. 25, all across Canada people were wearing brightly coloured red laces to show their support for Special Olympics. The Brockville and Area Special Olympics Community Council went even further, hosting a ‘Be a Fan’ breakfast at RAXX in Brockville. The city’s retired police chief Adrian Geraghty and inspector Scott Fraser paired to be masters of ceremonies which provided for some humourous moments. Prior to sitting down to a delicious breakfast, Special Olympics athletes proudly followed Fraser has he marched in leading with his bagpipes. Breakfast guests clapped loudly as these inspirational individuals made their way up to the front of the stage. “The leadership of this whole program is all across

the country,” said Fraser. “When we say that it includes every province, the Special Olympics, the Torch Run and police all go hand in hand. So when you see the Law Enforcement Torch Run, you will see the Brockville Police, the O.P.P., Correctional Services Officers from our local jails and the Custom Border Services.” ‘To Be A Fan’ campaign is a national program which aims to increase the awareness of the Special Olympics and its sports programs. Special Olympics Canada serves more than 35,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities. Well over 150 people attended this breakfast with seating of six to eight at a table. Organizers had a special guest at each table, that person was a local Special Olympian athlete. Other guests included

Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark, Brockville mayor David Henderson, Brockville Police Chief John Gardiner and representation from other law enforcement agencies. While eating breakfast, door prizes were handed out. Opportunity to participate Brockville and Area Special Olympics Community Council coordinator Dave Cavanagh thanked those presents and told about the outstanding accomplishments for this year. “Special Olympics is not Paralympics which is an organization for individuals with visible handicaps and is supported by the government,” said Cavanagh. “Special Olympics do not receive financial support from the government. We are a charitable organization and funded totally by donations from the local community and we thank you

for that.” Cavanagh continued to indicate that Special Olympics was created to give individuals with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to participate, dream and compete in sports activities. “Special Olympics provides opportunities for these individuals to learn new skills, to be active and engage in our communities and probably most important, it provides our athletes with an opportunity to build confidence and to be socially involved to develop friendships with each other.” Special Olympics was founded in 1968 in the United States and has become an international organization. The current membership in Brockville and area is 53, which is the largest number ever.

Lynn Steiner A former art history teacher, Lynn Steiner is trying to find her own style of painting and is branching out from being focused on watercolours to trying oils as well as acrylics. “I find watercolour challenging,” she said. “I love the way that the colours are transparent, so you can add colours to create depth.” Painting from photographs allows Steiner the opportunity to add depth to her landscape pieces, the way she sees the scene. “This year my paintings have been darker than they have been before,” she explained. “I’m trying to use intense colours and more layers of colour and I’m experimenting more to see where watercolours can do.” Steiner is a member of the South Grenville Artists Guild and this last year decided to join the Brockville Artists’ Studio. For years she has attended the annual Brockville Artists’ Studio show and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the variety of mediums. This enticed her to join. “Every time I meet a new artist, I find it inspiring,” said Steiner. Steiner’s love of painting came from her childhood See ART page 2

days, which was put on the back burner when she married and raised a family. “I’ve been drawing and painting ever since I was a child,” said Steiner. For the show, Steiner will be displaying her watercolours, mostly landscapes. “I do not have any portraits or people in my paintings,” she added. “I keep thinking that I’d like to. That might be the direction I go next year. I’m starting to work with acrylics and doing more abstracts.” Impressionistic work is something that Steiner has always liked and wants to continue to learn about. “I want to engage the viewer in using their imagination,” she said. “I’ve always admired Rembrandt because of the way he has used shadow and light. But then I like the impressionist too, so I love Monet. I’m still evolving and trying to find my own style.” To communicate with Steiner email lynnsteiner@ hotmail.com or call (613)

348-3055. Wayne Smith Wayne Smith grew up in the Brockville area. He appreciates the local countryside and believes he is a realist painter. “I’d like to complement Mother Nature by trying to paint what I see and make it look natural,” said Smith. “I’m constantly looking for new material. Sometimes I try to think of what people would like to see as a painting.” In the last year Smith has immersed himself into painting stills. “The first one was a step ladder with flowers on it in front of a big tree,” stated Smith. “I took pictures and painted it.” He also put apples in a basket to paint. He left one outside the basket, and called his work ‘one bad apple’. Smith started painting about seven years ago, in oil, after this daughter gave him paints for Christmas. “After about a year I discovered acrylics, so I paint in acrylics because it dries so much faster and this is what I enjoy the most,” said Smith. “I have a passion to make things look natural, in hopes that people will appreciate what is around the community.”

A few years ago, he also started to paint pet portraits. Smith took art classes in school, but life got in the way. Now being retired he has taken this enjoyment up again. He has found the time to experiment with all kinds of mediums and this is the first time he has belonged to a guild. “It’s so exciting to sell a painting,” he said. “It feels so good and I think that is the ultimate compliment.” When asked what Smith will be showcasing at the art show, he referred to his landscapes, the apple basket, ‘one bad apple’, Brockville Railway Tunnel, Prescott lighthouse with 75 per cent being local views. “I have an old barn with an old truck in front of it,” added Smith. “I hope that I can offer myself in my paintings to people. I remember my father-in-law, hated to lose any of his paintings. He said the greatest thing he liked was to see his painting on someone else’s wall. I think I feel the same way.” To speak with Wayne he can be reached waynegerda@gmail.com or call (613) 925-2540. The Brockville Artists’ Studio is not a juried group and was formed in 1979. This group maintains 30 members believing that it is important to help one another to learn and to share painting experiences. Currently the Brockville Artists’ Studio artists have paintings which are hanging at the Quality Hotel Royal Brockville Conference Centre and Sports Club as well as Sherwood Park Manor. To find out more, call Albert Lelievre (613) 342-6424. Families are encouraged to attend this art show to ask questions and learn about local artists.

Branch 92 Legion presents first Poppy to WWII veteran “Tom’s battalion had a normal establishment of 1,000 officers and men – 65 officers and 1,235 soldiers were killed in ten months of fighting and over 3,000 were wounded. Only constant replacements such as Tom Tindall kept the unit up to strength.” Tindall’s unit fought their way from Belgium, through the Netherlands and on into Germany. Two men from Gananoque were amongst those killed in the final days of the War - Private Bernard Sanders (Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders of Canada) and Lieutenant Paul Sampson (Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada). Sixty-five years In recent times, Tindall has celebrated both his 65th wedding anniversary and 65 years of membership in the Legion. He is believed to be the youngest of Gananaoque’s surviving WWII veterans, and on Sept. 14, 2010, was recognized and presented with a medal by Tony Steinburgen on behalf of the government of the Netherlands to mark his participation in the liberation of the Netherlands in 1945. “We also have four more senior veterans who all have been in the Gananoque Legion for 65 years or more - Don Harding (age 99), his brother Jack Harding (age 96), Bill Nuttall (age 95) and John Matheson (age 94),” said Beswetherick. “There may be others that I have forgotten.”

Right, Tom Tindall as he appeared in May, 1945, after being accepted into the Algonquin Regiment, Fourth Division. He fought in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.

“I volunteered for the Pacific after the war ended,” said Tindall. “I got back home before my oldest brother. He said, ‘I have to sit here and wait for my points’. I came home on the Queen Mary from Scotland to New York, then on a train that took us from New York to Montreal, Montreal grain took us right to where I lived then in Prescott and dropped me off. I had 30 days leave.” With the war over, it was time to return to hockey. He was on the 1948 Senior A title-winning Hamilton Tigers, one of only two centres available. And all of that is pretty remarkable for a kid who had had polio when he was younger, but managed to fight his way through it. “I had polio when I was ten,” said Tindall. “In those days, Cornwall and Morrisburg had that. My brother George was the only one who would come to visit me, and he got it, but we both got over it. I had a spine problem for a while, but they put a brace on it and I finally got strong enough. I was so young that I grew up to be able to play hockey.” He met his lovely wife at the Toronto Dominion Bank in Gananoque in 1947. “I figured she had money, so I married her,” Tindall said with a grin. A popular young beauty, he fought well and hard for

her hand, and has held fast to it ever since. She had been a volunteer in Kingston, dancing with soldiers and keeping them company in much the same way as the American USO. These young women provided that friendly face and sympathetic ear so needed by soldiers serving far from home. Of the 11 children born into the Tindall family, Tom is one of the four remaining. His brother George lives at Wedgewood. “He caught up with me twice,” said Tindall. “He met me in London and took me to a play, and then I was coming down the road in Holland and here he was again. “I went back to Holland in 1992 and took my son,” said Tindall. “They were very good over there and showed me how to get to the cemetery.” In honour of all that he’s done and all that we remember, the Legion proudly presented Tindall with the first poppy of the season on Oct. 23. The official poppy day in Gananoque will be on Nov. 3, when poppies will once again be available for a small donation. All funds collected got to the Poppy Fund, which helps supports the needs of veterans and their families throughout Canada.

EMC News - Not so far from Flanders Fields, young Tom Tindall landed with his comrades in Ghent, Belgium. It was 1945, and he was just 18, one of the many manboys who had joined forces to fight the “Hun” and restore the world to a better state. After the appointment of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany in 1933, the rapid deterioration of socio-economic conditions in Germany, and into Europe, soon exploded into a conflict in 1939 which was large enough to become known as World War II. “Tommy” Tindall (as he was best known) was a Junior A hockey player in Hamilton, playing against Ted Lindsay and other notables of the day. “I was asked if I would go with the Leafs or Detroit,” he says. “You know what I said? I’m going home to see mother and join up. It was during the war and they were hard up for players. I was down at the Montreal training camp in 1943, a 17 year-old kid.” He joined up in May of 1944 just as soon as he was old enough to get in. “I tried the Air Force in Ottawa at 17, but you had to be 17-and-a-half with a parent’s consent, so I came home and went and played Junior A hockey,” he said. “I had a birthday in January but it was May when they finally took me up to Kingston. They took me on the train. A guy says to me, ‘Where are you going?’ and I said to join up, so he says, ‘Then come with us.’” He trained quickly, shipping to the east coast, and then in February, 1945, he was shipped overseas. “I got into the last part of the action,” he said. “I started up at Ghent, Belgium, and on into Germany.” Tindall was with the Algonquin Regiment, Fourth Division, whose appointed task was to precede the main body of infantry and prepare the way. This was extremely perilous duty, resulting in many losses due to sniper fire. Costly “The last ten months of the war from Normandy in June 1944 to the German surrender in early May 1945 were very costly,” said Bill Beswetherick of the Royal Canadian Legion Colonel Russel H. Britton Branch 92 in Gananoque.

EMC Events - The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, in partnership with the Food Matters Coalition is hosting an interactive workshop called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take A Walk In My Shoesâ&#x20AC;?. This event, taking place on Nov. 16, 2012 at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Hopeâ&#x20AC;? Brockville Tabernacle,

aims to raise awareness about the barriers people living with low income face, and the dayto-day stigma that is often associated with poverty. Participants navigate through a maze where they will experience the challenges of trying to secure some of the most basic necessities in life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; money, food and

shelter. In Leeds, Grenville and Lanark, approximately one in ten families, and one in nine children, are living with low income. Families living with low income spend 63 per cent of their income on food, shelter and clothing, leaving them with very little money left over

There will be an open walk in flu clinic held on the following dates for all patients of the CPHC Community Family Health Team:

Clark pointed out how important it was to honour community volunteers. Brown has led more than 100 different clubs including dairy, dairy fitting, quilting, carpentry, scrapbooking, woodworking, photography and sewing just to name a few. She has been the person responsible for arranging and designing 4-H floats for both the Spencerville Fair and the Merrickville Santa Claus parade. There does not seem to be any facet of rural life that she has not been involved in. She has served at the provincial level as well as at the national level working with 4-H members. She has volunteered with the South Mountain fair board in several key capacities as well as taught Sunday school at the Heckston United Church. She has been a member of the North Edwardsburgh School Parent Association for the past 15 years and works as a parent volunteer.

EMC News - A Spencerville resident, Deborah Brown has been recognized for her tireless volunteering for the Grenville County 4-H. She has been awarded the 2011 Syngenta 4-H Ontario Arbor Award. This is 4-H Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most distinguished award. Fittingly, 4-H members celebrated along with Brown by planting a tree at the South Mountain Fairgrounds on Saturday, Oct. 20. The tree planting event was followed by a special reception at the St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church in Heckston. The young tree is a sugar maple that was purchased from Pioneer nursery in Kemptville. Deborah Brown was nominated for this once-in-a-lifetime award by the Grenville County 4-H. The nomination means a great deal to Deborah. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is your peers who nomi-

agriculture community. Brown remembers showing her very first calf at the fair so many years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is like home to me,â&#x20AC;? she said. Her commitment to the 4-H philosophy is complete. She believes it is up to the adults in a community to demonstrate leadership to younger members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leaders build leaders,â&#x20AC;? she explained. Brown described the 4-H philosophy as being all about building leadership. The four Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stand for Head - managing, thinking: Heart - relating, caring: Hands - giving, working and Health - being, living. These are all values Brown believes in and wants to share. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do not consider this work,â&#x20AC;? said Brown surrounded by young members of the 4-H club as well as a new group called Cloverbuds. The new group is for children age 6 to 8 while the regular 4-H members join up at age 9. Brown has been selected to manage the Cloverbuds pilot project. Eventually she hopes the Cloverbuds program will spread to the rest of Ontario. When not working with 4-H members and her community Brown, along with her husband Daryl, operate their family dairy farm, Hyndman Holsteins. The two are carrying on the legacy left to them by Deborahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father who was a master breeder. Deborah continues to milk cows twice a day, do bookkeeping, sire selection, and preparing cattle for classification. She works alongside Daryl and their daughter April. Attending the ceremony was Edwardsburgh-Cardinal

OTF grant allows Victim Services to embark on new youth program with us that have offered to assist with this as well.”

By RYLAND COYNE rcoyne@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Call it a youth movement within a respected social service agency. Thanks to a $58,500 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Victim Services of Leeds & Grenville has embarked on a new program to get young people involved. The funding was celebrated during a brief ceremony last Friday in the front lobby at Thousand Islands Secondary School (TISS) in Brockville. “We’re very pleased with the Trillium grant,” said Sonya Jodoin, executive director of the seven year-old organization. “This gives us an amazing ability to add on to our services and get the youth involved.” The youth program started Oct. 1, 2012 and has already shown signs of success, Jodoin says. “I think we’re up to 11 volunteers right now,” reported youth leader Amber MacDonald, noting more are always welcome to join in to perform a wide variety of tasks. All area schools, she adds, are providing the organization with referrals allowing it to grow the number of participants. “We want to be inclusive so we don’t want to turn anybody away,” added fundraising coordinator Sarah Elliott. According to a press release, youth volunteers with the program will be screened and, once trained, will serve as ambassadors for Victim Services within their school and communities. All volunteers will have the opportunity to actively assist in fundraising and public awareness events. The opportunities will not only help students to become more engaged in their community and gain important transferable job skills, it will contribute to their 40 hours of volunteer service required to graduate. Jodoin says it’s important to give young people an avenue by which they can become more involved in their community. “Up until this time, the only way to volunteer for victim services you had to be an adult because of the nature of the stuff we respond to,” she said. “We figured it would be an amazing opportunity to create a youth version of victim services

In order to get youth involved, Victim Services created a fundraising program which would give them events to attend. “So we combined the two… and we’ve got it all mapped out and it’s been wonderfully successful. And we’re really thrilled to get the kids involved.” Events students could be involved in range from selling cookbooks at craft fairs to lighting candles at the upcoming vigil Dec. 6, held in memory of those killed in the Montreal massacre. “It’s a very broad range of things the kids could potentially become involved in if they

want. They’ve already served spaghetti at a spaghetti dinner fundraiser. They did a fabulous job, we were thrilled with how well they did,” Jodoin said. For those who may want to get involved but not directly in fundraising or public events, Elliott says there are other ways to participate. “We always need posters done up and we need help with the advertising,” she said. “So if we ever have any artistic students who are really, really shy and don’t want to go out, they design some of our posters for us.” With a youth leader on board and volunteers ready to assist, Jodoin says she has not doubt the new program will be sustainable. “We have enough staff and volunteers to help keep it running once it’s going and once it’s established,” she said. “And we have a lot of adult volunteers who currently volunteer

The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment affects a property of approximately 0.3 ha (0.75 acres) located on the north side of Kilmarnock Road in part of Lot 30, Concession A (former Township of Wolford), and known municipally as 201 Kilmarnock Road. The subject property is occupied by a single-detached dwelling and the Country Christmas Shoppe store.

VALID UNTIL NOVEMBER 20, 2012

1000 ISLANDS MALL 613-345-1163 EXT 565 Located next to Sears Watch & Jewellery Repair and Sears Hair Studio

The property is currently zoned “Highway Commercial-Exception” (C3-3). It was originally re-zoned in 1994 to permit a ‘vehicle sales and rental’ use as the only permitted commercial use on the property. The original commercial use has since been replaced by the existing Country Christmas Shoppe use, which is not a permitted use in the C3-3 Zone.

November is Financial Literacy Month

The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment would re-zone the property from the existing C3-3 zone to the “Rural-Exception” (RU-6) Zone. Under the proposed “Rural-Exception” (RU-6) Zone, a ‘retail store’ would be permitted in addition to all of the uses permitted in the Rural (RU) Zone.

Legion Poppy campaign begins

Follow precautions during hunting season

EMC News - Lapels and collars are blossoming with the symbol of Remembrance, the Poppy, as the Royal Canadian Legion, Brockville Branch 96 starts its annual Poppy Campaign. Following tradition, Brockville mayor David Henderson (second from left) pins a Poppy on veteran Russ Perkins as Legion Poppy chair Keith Whiteland (right) and Charlie Whiteland (left) look on.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Agency aims to help students with financial decisions DEAR EDITOR: As a former high school teacher, the beginning of September always meant back-to-school. For students, it’s a time for many new things at school. It can also be a time for new experiences: becoming more independent, going to a different school or moving out on their own. Now, as a parent of two grown children, I am looking at the back-to-school season differently, reflecting on what I might have done to help them better prepare for school. I realize now that back-to-school is the perfect time to have a frank conversation with children about the importance of managing their personal finances, especially if they are moving out on their own for the first time. The Agency I lead, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC), was established in 2001 to help Canadian consumers gain a better understanding of financial products and services such as credit cards, bank accounts, mortgages and

investments. Since that time, FCAC has become a pioneer in creating clear, simple publications and easy-to-use web tools that give consumers objective, reliable help when they make financial decisions. The Government of Canada has given FCAC the mandate to foster financial literacy. The agency continues to develop innovative resources for students and all Canadians to help them strengthen their knowledge, skills and confidence to make responsible financial decisions. They are available at itpaystoknow.gc.ca. Our commitment to Canada’s youth is to give them the tools they need to increase their ability to understand, analyze and navigate the financial marketplace with confidence not only for the new school year, but also for the rest of their lives. Ursula Menke FCAC Commissioner

EMC Editorial - Tis vacation season for hunters out there – these are the men and women who count the days until their particular hunting season opens. These are the men and women who strategize how to go about landing their targets - whatever targets they may be. Geese, duck, deer, moose. The fall is a busy season. With this busy season however, there comes with it several issues. The Canada Safety Council reported in October alone, between Oct. 1 and 17, there were four deaths across Canada involving firearms. One each in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia. There was an additional incident in B.C., however it was not fatal. While one sole reason for the incidents can’t be identified, the Canada Safety Council is suggesting some precautions and training to prevent unnecessary deaths during this hunting season. A season meant to be enjoyed by those who call it a hobby. Each area may have different regulations, and dates for when hunting opens for various seasons, however the tips provided by the council can be taken as universal. They suggest taking a Canadian Firearms Safety Course, to wear “blaze” orange so as to be easily visible to others out hunting, keep firearm unloaded and locked when traveling to and from one’s hunting areas. Don’t hunt in populated areas or where several hunters may already be present. Other tips suggest not hunting when conditions are impaired by fog, or lack of daylight; to never hunt while impaired - either by lack of sleep, or by substances such as drugs or alcohol; to rely on sight and not sound; to keep one’s focus, and keep one’s finger off of the trigger until ready to shoot. There are many other tips which can be read by visiting the Canada Safety Council site (canadasafetycouncil. org), but above all most tips would fall under the common sense category. Exercise caution, and be safe so you can enjoy your hobby this year.

Ronny tries to plant potatoes in his ears EMC Lifestyle - Mother had a thing about clean ears and necks. We never once went out the door in the morning on the way to the Northcote School, that we weren’t subjected to a close look at both. Heaven forbid that we might get run over with a horse and buggy, end up at old Doctor Murphy’s or the Renfrew Hospital, and have someone see that we had dirty ears and necks! Every night before we went to bed, each of us had to give ourselves a sponge bath. And we had to pay special attention to our ears and necks, knowing full well they would be scrutinized the next morning. We pretty well ignored the rest of our bodies, since it wasn’t likely Mother would be examining us after we were fully dressed. My sister Audrey said she was quite sure we had the cleanest ears and necks in the entire of Renfrew County.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

One year the Lapointe cousins were again with us well into the fall, and Father said he doubted very much if Uncle Herby had any intention of taking them back to Montreal before the spring thaw! Ronny was a force to be reckoned with, while his younger brother Terry was as meek as a mouse. And any time Uncle Herby and Aunt Helen could send the boys out to the farm at Northcote, they did. It didn’t matter if it was the middle of the winter, or during the dead heat of the summer, we never knew when to expect the two cousins. I was always thrilled when they came to stay. They added much to our quiet life out there

on the farm, and I loved when the cousins were with us, even though Ronny was constantly in trouble, if not at home, at the Northcote School. Back then it didn’t seem to matter where you came from, or why you were in the school. If you were of school age, you just went. Terry was too young, even for Primer book, so he stayed home with Mother. But Ronny, close to my age, made the three and half mile trek with the rest of us. All that was needed was an extra bag of lunch. Well, Ronny hated having his ears examined every morning. He didn’t complain about the neck, but for some reason he went through a routine that

never varied when Mother was ready for her examination. He would bend his head onto his shoulder as far as it would go, screw up his face, and let out a howl much like our old Collie dog did when he thought something was attacking our hen house. Mother gave him no sympathy. He also didn’t have much use for the nightly sponge bath. And I know for a fact, he often just wet the face cloth and put it right back in the basin of water, stood for as long as he thought a reasonable time, and announced he was finished. And of course, the ears were rarely touched. Well, one morning Mother took a hold of one of his ears, and said “Ronny Lapointe, you could plant potatoes in there. Get over to the bench and I’ll give those ears a clean out.” Well, for some reason that morning, Ronny took his punishment like a man. But

I could tell the wheels were turning in his heard. There was no howling, and he didn’t even bend his head to his shoulder when the other ear was being washed. Something was up with Ronny, I could tell. He was deep in thought. The next morning, we all lined up for the usual examination. Mother thought, since Audrey was in Senior Fourth, she didn’t have to have her ears and neck examined. She was old enough and quite capable of looking after her own cleanliness. I couldn’t wait until I reached that magic age. Well, it was Ronny’s turn. He stood ramrod straight. Again, very unusual for Ronny. When Mother bent to have a look, she got close to his ears and then hauled him over to the window so she could get a better view. “Ronny Lapointe! What have you got in your ears?”

Ronny looked up at Mother and said, “Aunty, you said yesterday I could plant potatoes in my ears. Well, I thought I could maybe help it along if I put a bit of gravel in there. I sure would like to see a potato grow in my ears. Boy, wouldn’t I have something to tell the guys back in Montreal when I get home.” I had no idea if he thought seriously that he could plant a potato in his ear by putting in a bit of dirt, or if, as usual, he just wanted to cause a bit of commotion in that old log house out in Renfrew County! Father was just coming in the back door from the barns and he saw the entire performance. He lit his pipe, squinted his eyes half shut, as he always did when he saw or heard something he couldn’t believe, and said “It’s going to be a long winter. I’ll tell you, I’m afraid they’ll be here until the spring run-off!”

Ghosts and Legends fill Gananoque on Haunted Walk EMC News - “Submitted for your approval…” - Rod Serling, The Twilight Zone Gananoque is a quiet little town, not much happening. The people are friendly, the businesses small and respectable. But as the shadows fall and daylight wends its way to darkness, a caped figure carrying a lantern can be seen to emerge. Wandering the streets with a following of strangers, this not-so-ethereal apparition guides them through the older portion of the town, introducing them to the finest of the local ghosts and legends as they participate in a Haunted Walk. A special edition of the walk was brought out specifically to tease the mind and awaken the imagination for the Halloween season. Tour guide Natalie Wood started with her group at the Blinkbonnie Inn on Main Street, carefully weaving her tales as she brought them from one highly haunted spot to another. “The Blinkbonnie is one of Gananoque’s most haunted buildings,” said Wood. “We do a lot of research before using any story on one of our tours, and we rely very heavily on first hand witness accounts. We try to get multiple accounts to back these up. We also do research in the archives, the local library, and old newspapers to ensure accuracy. “Our first story of the evening has to do with this very building…” And so the darker, more interesting history of the people of Gananoque begins to unfold, one strange and twisted tale after another, making us perhaps wonder about our esteemed ancestors and whether there are more skeletons than closet lurking behind the scenes. Tales of hauntings, of odd and unexpected happenings, it’s all there at the twilight edge of town. Charles MacDonald, a well respected resident, was associated with many of the buildings and locations in town, and many tales revolve around him. Others come up as the darkening streets are navigated, going site to site, always with something slightly twisted and sinister hiding just beneath the sheets. Many know that Joel Stone had a price on his head, and quite an admirable one for its day. Fewer know that the gravedigger, a man quick to take advantage of a lucrative opportunity, removed and kept that head in order to collect on that handsome reward. For more than 50 years Stone’s skull remained missing, until it turned up in use as an ashtray in a tavern. Although it has since been returned to its rightful position at the head of Gananoque’s founder, this is a tale of skulduggery designed to make the flesh crawl in anticipation.

Gananoque’s former jail, now an ice cream parlour, also places well in tales of the unusual. For it is known that the contractor who created that tiny house of detention was also resident inside its walls not long after its completion. Arrested on charges on drunkenness and disturbing the peace, he holds the distinction of being the first person to do time in a cell of

his own construction. From Donevan’s Hardware Store to the Clock Tower to Town Hall itself, the town is steeped in mystery and legend. And not all of it falls into the shadowed past. Stories continue to this very day. On the night of October 27, 2012, a local reporter had joined the group to cover the spooky goings on. She had

just come from a successful session of photographing young people in costume enjoying some of the seasonal festivities. However, upon entering the Blinkbonnie to join the other members of the tour, the shutter on her camera ceased to function. The battery was fine, every other aspect worked perfectly, but everything went dead each time she touched the shut-

ter in an attempt to get even one picture with which to illustrate her story. As they meandered the streets, she tried again and again but to no avail. The camera was obviously out of commission. However, upon arriving home just after completing the tour, the shutter again worked perfectly with no sign of ever having been faulty. Coincidence, or yet

another tale to add to the collection for haunted Gananoque? You decide… Haunted walks are available throughout the warmer seasons. Lasting about 90 minutes each, they make 12 stops and give an insight into the true ghost stories, legends and history of the town. For more information, please go to www.hauntedwalk.com .

EMC News - With National Patient Safety Week (Oct. 29 to Nov. 2) in mind, Brockville General Hospital (BGH) is happy to announce the recent launch of a new environmental monitoring system at the hospital that will significantly help in the prevention of healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs). “The new system is called EnCompass™ Monitoring Program,” explains BGH Facilities Manager Todd Schonewille. “It helps us monitor and evaluate the cleaning effectiveness of our housekeeping practices in patient care areas. This way, we can improve and maintain our best cleaning practices.” Schonewille says the standard observational method of checking a room once cleaned is not sufficient or reliable enough to fully assess the actual cleanliness. The new program identifies high-touch objects and monitors their cleaning with marking gel used after patients leave the rooms and before cleaning. After cleaning, the room is surveyed for residual gel, showing where cleaning was not effective. An observational survey is also done to supplement the assessment. Data is then easily collected electronically to analyze current cleaning processes and where they can be improved. Online reports can be generated for immediate feedback and then for sharing with staff for discussion.

Project Zero supplies alarms to 180 Elizabethtown-Kitley homes By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News – Enbridge Gas Distribution, the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council and Elizabethtown-Kitley Fire and Emergency Services have worked together to bring 178 combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to high-risk (mature adults and special needs) residents in Elizabethtown-Kitley. On Thursday, Oct. 25, Elizabethtown-Kitley fire chief Jim Donovan delivered one such unit to Don and Verta Casselman at Oxford Acres. “It’s a program that Enbridge Gas Distribution has made available to Ontario fire departments,” said Donovan. “If their (Enbridge’s) lines run through the municipality then we could participate in this. It was like a random draw and through the draw we were fortunate enough to be picked.” Donovan continued to say that these detectors were distributed to seniors, developmentally-challenged individuals or just those facing tough economic times. These alarms were supplied for free.

say that of the 178, we are returning none. The program has really gone well.” The units are a KIDDE audible and voice combination smoke and carbon monoxide bilingual detector which would retail in excess of $50 each. As for the Casselmans, they are grateful for a new unit. “I think it is great because the one we have now is the one that was there when we moved in 12 years ago,” said Verta Casselman. As Donovan noted, it is recommended that detectors be replaced every 10 years. “In new homes construction now, it is mandatory that all carbon monoxide detectors as well as smoke alarms are installed, but for older homes prior to the new code, it is not for carbon monoxide,” he added. Another aspect in construction is adding a garage onto the existing house with a dryer vent being position in what is now the garage. This could cause carbon monoxide to seep back into the house because it has been closed off in the garage. In Ontario, the law is that every house must have a working smoke alarm on every story and outside all sleeping areas. Although not legislated in Ontario, it is highly recommended by the Ontario Fire Marshal to have a carbon monoxide alarm installed in the home.

Tag tempest tries to get ministry to listen EMC Lifestyle - A thoughtful reader wrote in with a concern she tried to take up with the Ontario Minister of Transportation recently… “Dear Minister, Our province is unfortunately being ridiculed for its treatment of handicapped people with our Accessible Parking Permits (APP). The problem is an aggravating and frustrating one for which there may be an easy solution. I would not have known of the problem until my own mobility became impaired. I used to live in Winnipeg and recently moved back to my home province of Ontario. Thus I was driving a vehicle with an Ontario license plate but with my Manitoba handicap sticker. At grocery stores, shopping malls, and other locations, I was stopped regularly and questioned by other individuals. They wanted to know where I got my handicap placard which hangs from my rear view mirror. In seeing my Ontario license plate, they assumed that the handicap sticker was also from Ontario. They then regaled me with their complaints - that their Ontario permit (a piece of laminated paper) had to be placed on the dashboard and, when the window was open, it sometimes flew out the window and they lost it - or that they used rubber bands to tie it to the sun visor but then they must remember each time they park to lower the visor or else they get fined several hundred dollars. In summary, the complaints were about the design and poor quality of the Ontario handicap permit and the desire to have

one similar to those provided in other provinces and states. Could the Province of Ontario not provide disabled parking placards which can hang from rear view mirrors or else decals which could be affixed to the car license? For this, they might charge a minor fee which could yield substantial revenue for the department. It also would relieve handicapped individuals of parking grief and problems related to poorly designed permits. I urge you to give this problem serious attention and to alleviate this problem created by your department. Thank you sincerely, JS Kingston The Ontario government responded to our reader with a statement to the effect that the placement of the permit and the info it contains are governed by legislation and that a removable permit was chosen because there are many applicants, (minor children, seniors) who neither drive nor own vehicles but still require and qualify for permits. They added that this provides for family members, friends or service providers to take the permit with them when they are providing transportation to someone with a disability. They also indicated the

laminated permit has security features and is in fact quite durable. Affixing it to the sun visor or placing it on the dashboard protects the personal and identifying information on the reverse side of the permit. If the permit was hanging from the rear-view mirror, identifying information about the permit holder would be visible through the windshield and/or the side windows. Additionally, they wouldn’t suggest suspending the permit from the rear-view mirror as it would obstruct the driver’s view of traffic. Our reader tried to reason with the Ministry that private personal information did not have to appear on the permit but could be simply tied to a serialized number on the government’s data-base. They also offered the fact that many jurisdictions currently use a mirror tag without any worry about impairing visibility through the windshield. When I contacted the MTO they passed my inquiry to Service Ontario and the response I got from them was simply a carbon copy of what they sent to our reader. It could be reasonably

argued that a shiny laminated sheet of paper laid on the dash of a vehicle can provide just as much vision impairment (if not more) than a suitably-sized permit tag hanging from the rear-view mirror. And on some vehicles with a dark band of window tinting at the top of the

windshield the permit might not be completely visible if left attached to the sun-visor. But judging from the response received from Service Ontario, they are firmly stuck in reverse and not interested in a logical improvement to this issue. 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. Yours in service Brian Turner

Beverley Young likes to hang out with ghosts By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News - Through her investigative work Beverley Young has been hanging out with ghosts for years. She believes in the spiritual, the paranormal and the metaphysical side. “Yes, I communicate with spirits! Yes, I am a spiritual/ Tarot reader,” she said. According to Young there are lost souls who for whatever reason, have not passed over to the other side, and she has the ability to communicate with them. She does not conduct spiritual investigations professionally; it is more for her own personal interest and research for her next book, ‘Eternity’. When asked why there are

ghosts or spirits, Young explains what her studies have revealed. “I have come to understand, and from what I’ve heard from spirits, is that those who stay close to the earth are actually in another dimension, on the astroplane,” said Young. “They can be around us but we can not see into that dimension. Certain people can because over the years they have developed the third eye; the chakra opens and they can see into other dimensions.” Young feels that anyone can develop the third eye. “Animals use their mental telepathy to communicate and we have lost that skill because we rely on language skills and body

language,” said Young. “However we all have this innate ability to communicate telepathically and the way to open the door is through consistent meditation or through a spiritual awakening.” Continuing, Young indicated that spirits who stay close to earth are often reluctant to let go of the physical world as they are attached to people or a place. “There are people who are trained, soul rescue workers who will go to a home and send the spirits back to the light,” said Young. “If you know of a haunted place, people will invite you to go and take a look around to see if you get a sense of any See SPIRITS page 15

spirits in the house. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always researching and wanting to learn more.â&#x20AC;? Ottawa Carleton Jail In January 2009, during a snowstorm, Young travelled to the Ottawa Carleton Jail, formerly known as the Carleton County Jail and the Nicholas Street Gaol which was built in 1862, to spend the night. This jail is now operated by Hostelling International and is referred to as the Ottawa Jail Hostel. This particular jail is noted for being the place where Patrick James Whelan was executed in 1869 for the assassination of Thomas Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy McGee. It is believed that Whelanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spirit still haunts the facility along with that of many others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was doing some research and booked my room ahead,â&#x20AC;? said Young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I arrived I said Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like somewhere quiet as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a light sleeper, so please put me away from elevators, so the man said they would put me up on the ninth floor as it will be very quiet there.â&#x20AC;?

Young joined the Jailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guided ghost tour group, interviewed people and later walked around the facility by herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the ghost tour I went back to my room to get my camera and to my amazement I discovered I was all alone,â&#x20AC;? said Young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the hall, I opened the door, went down three steps and I was at the death row cell and the gallows. It was very, very heavy with dark energy. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid but I felt like I was being observed. I took a lot of photos. Staying overnight at the Jail, was a very interesting experience.â&#x20AC;? Using her small digital camera, Young came away with photographs that could be spirits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anything at the time and it was only after I saw them on my computer where I could get a good look that I saw something,â&#x20AC;? said Young. One of the photos had a partial face of a man who was wearing a hat. The apparition looked very evil and spinechilling to view. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some reason only the head of a person will show up in a photograph,â&#x20AC;? said Young.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The body rarely shows up.â&#x20AC;? The whole ninth floor has been used to house female inmates where Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother had worked as a matron. Another reason she wanted to go. Previously, the cells used for inmates have been a hospital. Spirits The signs of a spirit or ghost can range from a strong scent or odour like tobacco, flowers or perfume, indentations on soft furniture, feeling of being watched, heavy or dense air, electrical surges, sounds like knocking or footsteps, items being moved or disappeared, a petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strange reaction upon entering a room or the feeling of being touched. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes walking around a house you hit very cold air pockets,â&#x20AC;? said Young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good sign of spirit activity.â&#x20AC;? Not knowing whether the spirit is a loving spirit or hostile spirit, Young through her insight or seeing the spirit will get a feeling as to who they are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Telepathically they speak to me,â&#x20AC;? indicated Young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I get my communication. Sometimes about what they are doing in the

afterlife, what it is all about; I get so much information, it is amazing.â&#x20AC;? Years ago, while busy, Young would be interrupted with messages for people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes information comes through as messages for other people as well,â&#x20AC;? added Young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had messages for friends and acquaintances.â&#x20AC;? She would stop what she was doing at the time, go to the computer and type it out. Once finished she would mail the message to the person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have always received the messages rather well,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody has said that they do not believe. The information is usually very personal and only that person would know.â&#x20AC;? In one instance, a mother lost her daughter and a message came through to Young with a closing signature plus a symbol which the mother confirmed that her daughter always signed her correspondence

that way. Gift Young realized she had this gift when her mother passed away and she observed her leaving the body to continue her journey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go looking for this (spiritualism), it came looking for me,â&#x20AC;? admitted Young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I figured that my purpose in live is to tell stories and get it out to the world that death is a continuation of life on a different level and different realm. Life is not the end. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to give hope to people and something to look forward to instead of fear. Death is actually a very beautiful experience and to know that you will meet up and be reunited with loved ones who have gone on before you. Not to mentioned all kinds of spirits that you would love to meet. When you think of meeting Beethoven or the artist Monet, it is very exciting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like they have moved to another coun-

try, far away.â&#x20AC;? Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very first contact was through handwriting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I actually started getting spiritual communications the first thing was through automatic handwriting,â&#x20AC;? offered Young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was not in my handwriting. The pen or pencil will start to move. Sometimes it is very difficult to read or understand and other times it is clear. You will get words that you make sense of and other times you get gibberish.â&#x20AC;? Young continued to say that she has received visual images in messages from people, including a name. She feels that some people are not open to hearing about spirit investigation and will be judgmental, as a stigma still exists.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

“It is at this time I (must) announce sadly that the 2013 Pondapalooza weekend will not proceed as planned,” said Lori Higgs, event coordinator. “I want to thank each and every one of you again for all your help the past two years in making this a great event for our community. “Although I respect and value everyone’s time and thank those that did offer to help this year where they can, there is just not enough manpower to successfully build and maintain this event. We have advertised for new volunteers with no luck through newspapers, radio and social media. And I thank them for the assistance in helping us get more volunteers.” A relatively new event for the area, Pondapalooza had been slowly gaining momentum, but was proving to be too much for the limited number of volunteers and participants to maintain at this time.

festival of outdoor sport, it involved curling and hockey played on the natural ice of the St. Lawrence River, as well as vendors, hay rides, great free entertainment and an opportunity to get to know many of Gananoque’s local businesses. Many have offered their condolences and appreciation, but no one as yet has been able to pick up the torch and take on the event. “The efforts of the past two years by so many to produce Pondapalooza was a true show of community spirit,” said Jan Gravelle. “Lori’s initiative, individual commitment, and energy (all) given to Pondapalooza were exceptional. Many of the chores were accomplished with a minimum of help and always in the face of fickle and adverse weather conditions. (She) kept our spirits up and made sure we made it happen! “Perhaps someone will take up the challenge, reviving Pondapalooza to be a great ‘winter-on-the-river’ event in the future.” Others in the community agreed with these sentiments, including Sue Smith, Manager, Parks, Recreation, Marina for the Town of Gananoque and John Keilty of the Gananoque Inn and Spa, both of whom sent their condolences. Several reasons were suggested for the shut down of the event, ranging from time of year to poor weather to lack of manpower, but Gananoque is only down, not out. “Perhaps something else will evolve this winter and take its place,” said Robb Bowman. “Possibly running this event every other year would be more beneficial to people, (give them) more time to plan and prepare. “Hopefully we can continue to see such great events come to our area in the winter seasons and help support local businesses.”

War 200 years ago brings international cooperation today the Government of Canada for local War of 1812 bicentennial events,â&#x20AC;? said Suzanne Dodge, who heads the committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our plans include a morning skirmish on Saturday, February 23 at Fort Wellington before the re-enactors staying here are bussed to Ogdensburg for the afternoon battle, and that evening weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll host the reenactorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dinner, followed by a period dance open to all.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the cooperation of Prescott, re-enactors and the public on both sides of the river will experience an ex-

panded 200th anniversary Battle of Ogdensburg, safer, but just as thrilling, as the original battle.â&#x20AC;? said Tim Cryderman, President of Forsythâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rifles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An exciting change Saturday afternoon will have the re-enactors battling along the streets, following a route similar to the one taken by the Anglo-Canadian army in 1813 as it fought toward the fort on Lighthouse Point.â&#x20AC;? Given the large number of participants expected at this once-in-a-lifetime event, 60 or more re-enactors from

the Canadian Fencibles, Les Voltigeurs Canadiens and the 15th New York Regiment will bunk in the Fort Wellington blockhouse Friday and Saturday night. Their breakfasts will be served at the Royal Canadian Legion, courtesy of the Prescott organizers. Prescottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bicentennial activities include unveiling a mural commemorating the raid on Ogdensburg, an art and artisans showcase, and family

Letter sent to parents regarding recent incident in Gananoque EMC News - An incident occurred in Gananoque recently involving a male who was driving a dark grey car, apparently a Chevrolet Impala or Malibu, who allegedly approached a girl in the community and offered her a ride. The Gananoque Police Service is investigating. The male driver is described as having tanned skin and wearing a white, blue and grey plaid shirt. The girl remains safe and Linklater Public School staff members have stepped up surveillance of school grounds. Parents are encouraged to take the time to talk with their children about precautions they should take when dealing with strangers. Here are some suggestions for parents to discuss with their children: 1) Teach your child to

activities that include horsedrawn wagon rides. Friday, February 22, 200 years to the day of the attack across the frozen St. Lawrence, Canadian historian Robert Henderson will address the Red George Heritage Dinner at the Red George Public House in Prescott.

Love Your Lake: provincial shoreline stewardship program launches with OTF grant Love Your Lake will provide local organizations across Ontario with resources and training to deliver an engaging and effective program to help landowners protect and restore their shorelines, ultimately improving the health of their lakes. Resources will include communications and training materials, program manuals, and funding required to deliver the program. This program was developed in partnership with the Canadian Wildlife Federation with regional collaboration and support from partners across the province including the Lakeland Alliance, Peterborough Green Up, Muskoka Watershed Council, and the City of Greater Sudbury. The program development integrates best practices and

peer-reviewed methods and protocols that provide a provincewide standardized approach for shoreline evaluation and stewardship. Previously, within each region, shoreline stewardship activities were carried out under the same goal of shoreline health, but with different methods. This standardized approach will help collect shoreline data that is consistent, measurable, and comparable both geographically and over time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are really excited about taking this model across the province in partnership with existing organizations that are the experts in their regions in working with shoreline property owners. We hope that other groups in Ontario adopt this program based on our success as well,â&#x20AC;? says Barbara King, Executive Director of the Cen-

tre for Sustainable Watersheds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we see greater development along our waterfronts, it becomes increasingly important for property owners to take steps to be good shoreline stewards,â&#x20AC;? says Rick Bates, Executive Director of the Canadian Wildlife Federation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to ensure that we keep our lakes healthy for future generations to enjoy.â&#x20AC;?

cational initiatives and to support their work by providing the necessary tools, technologies and resources. Its goal is to help build water-conscious communities dedicated to safeguarding our treasured waterways. Our vision is to see training programs, educational materials, web-based information sharing, sustainable wastewater technologies and hands-on initiatives such as habitat and shoreline protection delivered in a sustainable manner to protect Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lakes and rivers.

EMC News - From Nov. 1724, YMCA Peace Week invites people of all ages to reflect on peace, to talk, and to take action, individually and with others. A special highlight of this week is the presentation of the YMCA Peace Medallion to an individual or group who, without any special resources, demonstrates a commitment to peace through individual contributions made within their community or overseas. To nominate a deserving individual or group, please obtain forms at the YMCA Association Services desk, or go to the website and facebook page for more information.

LCBO marks 50 years in Cardinal er-friendly. The stores today offer more product selection and services. There are monthly in-store thematic promotions. It has introduced marketing initiatives like Food & Drink magazine and limited time offers (price discounts) on select products. The strategy has been to make LCBO shopping more informative by providing consumers with ideas for entertaining, not just bottles on the shelf. In this way, it can address changing consumer tastes and better serve customers who have become increasingly more knowledgeable about beverage alcohol products. Drink preferences have

also changed over the years. In 1961, Canadian whisky was the big seller with rum and gin also popular choices. Interest in wines was primarily limited to fortified wines such as ports and sherries. Over the years consumer interest shifted to table wines, starting with popular blended wines in the 1980s and 1990s and then to varietal wines (Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Riesling, Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc) in recent years. Generally speaking, as consumers become more knowledgeable about beverage alcohol, they trade up to higher quality, more premium-style products. Submitted by the LCBO.

EMC Business - On Thursday, Oct. 25, the LCBO officially celebrated 50 years of service in Cardinal. Staff at the store, located at 623 Highway #2, Village Square Mall, cut an anniversary cake at 11 a.m. and invited customers to enjoy cake and coffee to celebrate the milestone. The LCBO has come a long way since the days when one filled out a form to buy a bottle. The stores were all counter service until the LCBO began converting them to self-serve operations in the 1970s and 80s with the last ones converted in the early 1990s. LCBO stores have evolved over the years to become more us-

Community celebrates completion of Habitat for Humanity project By CONAN de VRIES

EMC News - Just as the community turned out to support the construction of a new Habitat for Humanity project in Prescott, the community turned out to celebrate the completion of that project. On Sunday, Oct. 28, people filled the cafeteria at South Grenville District High School to recognize the end of the ambitious undertaking and to welcome the beneficiaries of the project into their new homes. “We don’t just build houses; we build homes within a community,” said

The new owners of the south unit are Mark and Kristin Allen, along with their children Dakota, Travis and Emmerson. Living in the centre unit will be Rhonda Burns and her sons Thomas and Devon. The north unit is going to Diane Amadie and her children Hunter and Carrie Ann. Now that the Prescott build is finished and the three area families are comfortably settled into their new abode, Habitat for Humanity is looking for a new undertaking. Before that, though, there will be some big changes at the organization itself. Habitat for Humanity (HFH) Thousand Islands will be merging with HFH National Capital Region and HFH Seaway Valley to create a new, much larger, organization called Habitat for Humanity Eastern Ontario. “We hope to increase the number of houses we build in our area,” said Little.

Housing starts see slight drop in September 2012

HABITAT

EMC News - Housing starts in Canada were trending at 224,419 units annually in September, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). The trend is a six-month moving average of the seasonally adjusted annual rates (SAAR)1 of housing starts. The standalone monthly SAAR was 220,215 units in September, down from 225,328 in August. “Housing starts in September were largely in line with the latest trend figure. The monthly decrease posted in September was mostly due to a decrease in urban multiples starts. As expected, the number of multiples starts in Ontario, particularly in Toronto, reverted back to a level more in line with the average pace of activity over the last six months,”

The Prescott build wasn’t always a picnic; it took a long time to figure out just where to build the home, and there were some logistical problems involved in figuring out just who had jurisdiction over a part of the property. Everyone last weekend was pleased, though, to see the project finally come to fruition and were particularly heartened to see the new homes already occupied with three deserving families. “These are the kinds of families that built the town, and these are the kinds of families that are going to move Prescott forward,” said Mayor Brett Todd.

said Mathieu Laberge, Deputy Chief Economist at CMHC. “Following a period of elevated housing starts activity due to strong volumes of multi-family unit pre-sales in 2010 and 2011, the pace of housing starts is expected to moderate.” CMHC uses the trend measure as a complement to the monthly SAAR of housing starts to account for considerable swings in monthly estimates and obtain a more complete picture of the state of the housing market. In some situations, analyzing only SAAR data can be misleading, as they are largely driven by the multiples segment of the markets which can be quite variable from one month to the next. The seasonally adjusted annual rate of urban starts

decreased by 3.0 per cent to 203,731 units in September. Urban singles starts decreased by 1.4 per cent in September to 67,643 units, while multiples urban starts decreased by 3.9 per cent to 136,088 units. September’s seasonally adjusted annual rate of urban starts increased by 17.6 per cent in the Prairies and by 20.3 per cent in Atlantic Canada. Urban starts remained relatively unchanged in Quebec (+1.3 per cent). Urban starts decreased by 3.7 per cent in British Columbia and by 18.2 per cent in Ontario. Rural starts (2) were estimated at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 16,484 units in September. As Canada’s national housing agency, CMHC draws on more than 65

years of experience to help Canadians access a variety of quality, environmentally sustainable and affordable housing solutions. CMHC also provides reliable, impartial and up-to-date housing market reports, analysis and knowledge to support and assist consumers and the housing industry in making informed decisions. Preliminary Housing Starts data are also available in English and French. (1) All starts figures in this release, other than actual starts and the trend estimate, are seasonally adjusted annual rates (SAAR) — that is, monthly figures adjusted to remove normal seasonal variation and multiplied by 12 to reflect annual levels. By removing seasonal

ups and downs, seasonal adjustment allows for a comparison from one season to the next and from one month to the next. Reporting monthly figures at annual rates indicates the annual level of starts that would be obtained if the monthly pace was maintained for 12 months. This facilitates comparison of the current pace of activity to annual forecasts as well as to historical annual levels. (2) CMHC estimates the level of starts in centres with a population of less than 10,000 for each of the three months of the quarter, at the beginning of each quarter. During the last month of the quarter, CMHC conducts the survey in these centres and revises the estimate.

Young Guiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dedication to her community earns her a Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Jubilee medal EMC News - Millions of people throughout the Commonwealth have celebrated the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ascension to the throne, but a young Prescott resident has been given a little extra reason to celebrate the monarchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Jubilee. Bailey Whitehouse recently attended a ceremony in Ottawa where she was awarded a prestigious Diamond Jubilee medal in recognition of her remarkable dedication to community service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really exciting,â&#x20AC;? said the 16-year-old, who was given the award by the Girl Guides of Canada, which was allotted 30 medals by the Governor General to be awarded to deserving Guiders throughout the country. That Whitehouse was chosen to be among such a select few made the award all the more unexpected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were shocked when we got the letter,â&#x20AC;? said Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Shirley, who is also a long-time leader of the Prescott Girl Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers units. As singular as it may be to

Prescottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bailey Whitehouse was one of only 30 members of the Girl Guides in the country to receive the prestigious Diamond Jubilee medal for service to her community.

Impressive resume It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just one thing that tipped the balance in White-

houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favour when the Girl Guidesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; selection committee chose her, but the teenagerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impressive resume does have one striking entry. In the past two years, Whitehouse has logged more than 800 volunteer hours in the service of her community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a goal of getting 1,000 hours,â&#x20AC;? she says. Whitehouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to her community started early. One day, when she was only little, she went to the Prescott Public Library with her mother, who was volunteering her time reading to young children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She saw the smiles on the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; faces,â&#x20AC;? remembers Shirley. That feeling remains Whitehouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motivation to this day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find it fun to work with the community,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It opens your eyes to how much the community needs support.â&#x20AC;? Whitehouse is a member of the 1st Prescott Rangers and has come up through the ranks of the Guiding organization, beginning 12 years ago in Sparks. Over the years she has distinguished herself in all areas of Guiding and has been recognized with some of the

movementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest honours, including the 2009 Lady Baden Powell award, a 2010 Canada Cord, and the 2012 Chief Commissioner Silver, among several others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get bored when I sit still,â&#x20AC;? says Whitehouse. Indeed, if the Girl Guides werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t demanding enough, Whitehouse is also a member of the Lt. W.F. Sharpe 661 Air Cadets Squadron in Prescott, where she excels all the same and distinguishes herself by her ambition. Whitehouse has one more year left in Guides, after which she hopes to follow in her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s footsteps and become a leader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to continue Prescottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s units,â&#x20AC;? she says. But before that, she is hoping to earn her Chief Commissioner Gold accreditation, the highest distinction bestowed on a member of the Rangers. Under the auspices of the Air Cadets, Whitehouse is also working towards her gold level Duke of Edinburgh certification, having achieved her silver earlier this year. See MEDAL page 31

be awarded a Diamond Jubilee medal, Bailey isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only one in the Whitehouse family who can boast such an honour. William Whitehouse, a decorated soldier and Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandfather, was awarded a Silver Jubilee Medal in 1977 for his service to the Dominion Command of the Army, Navy and Air Force and for his numerous campaigns in the Second World War. Most of the Girl Guidesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; allotted awards were given to members of the Treffoil Guild, a branch of older alumni of the Guiding movement, making Whitehouse one of the youngest to receive the honour. She was nominated, though, by three members of the local Treffoil Guild. There were about 200 people assembled on Oct. 20 at Ben Franklin Place in Ottawa when Whitehouse was presented with the special Diamond Jubilee medal, emblazoned on one side with an image of the Queen and on the other with the regal insignia.

Prescott Bicentennial Committee puts call out for War of 1812 mural artists grace the west wall of the Moran Hooker Building, an historic structure located at the bottom of Centre Street, on the way down to the Prescott waterfront. “We want something to really symbolize the historical significance of the raid,” says Suzanne Dodge, former mayor of Prescott and chair of the Bicentennial Committee. The Raid on Ogdensburg took place in February of 1813 in response to several forays made earlier in the year by American troops onto Canadian soil, includ-

It’s hard to imagine a battalion of armed soldiers marching off the shores of Prescott onto the frozen St. Lawrence River to attack the United States. But you might just see it again in a few months. Fortunately, the scene will repeat itself in paint only. The Bicentennial Committee of Prescott has put out a call to artists interested in helping to mark the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 by painting a mural depicting the famous Raid on Ogdensburg.

Lieutenant Colonel “Red” George MacDonnell led a unit of Glengarry Fencibles and regular soldiers across the ice and succeeded in putting an end to the threat posed by the nearby American forces. The committee is looking for an artist able to capture the magnitude and the drama of the raid and cast in paint one of the most remarkable moments in the Fort Town’s long and storied history.

And it will take more than just a flare with the paintbrush to win over the committee. The Raid on Ogdensburg is well-chronicled, and the chosen artist will have to be precise as to details. “It’s got to be historically correct,” says Dodge. “They’ll have to do some research.” Researching the raid, however, won’t be an onerous task, as there is plenty of

information readily available to inspire the winning artist. In fact, there’s even another mural to look at. Inside the recently-built visitors’ centre at Fort Wellington is a brand new artist’s rendering of the Raid, though on a much smaller scale than is envisioned for the mural. The mural won’t be painted directly on the wall of the building, being that it’s a heritage site itself, but will be painted offsite on sections of board and later assembled in place. An unveiling of the finished work is slated for Feb. 23, 2013. The deadline for submissions is Nov. 12, 2012, and the deadline for completion of the project is Feb. 15, 2013.

and Canadian forces crossed the ice, it was certainly somewhere in the vicinity of the proposed location of the mural, opposite the Forwarder’s Museum and just steps away from the Red George Pub, named for the raid’s legendary leader. “It’s a very historic part of town,” says Dodge. Funding for the mural is made possible by the federal Department of Canadian Heritage, through its War of 1812 Commemoration Fund. The artist chosen for the project will be given $2,000 for the design of the artwork, while a further $8,000 will be made available for production and installation. “We want someone who is capable of taking on the whole project,” says Dodge.

Thrills and chills creep out haunted house visitors

MEDAL From page 29

D

In January, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping to earn the opportunity to write the test for her glider pilotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence, but there is fierce competition in her Air Cadet squadron for a limited number of spots. Looking farther ahead, the Grade 11 student is looking to get into the aerospace industry and is eyeing an education at either Carleton University or Algonquin College in Ottawa.

EMC Events - A glowing bonfire and creepy burial grounds welcomed visitors to the Athens House of Haunts on County Road 5 North Saturday evening, Oct. 27. For the 11th year Angie Halladay, family and friends came together to present their interpretation of Halloween, transforming their shop to accommodate the axe murderer, zombies, an upright coffin, malevolent ghosts, the pitchfork plunger, the headless beauty and other intrusive paranormal spirits. No fee was charged, only a non-perishable food item (for the food bank), for those brave enough to enter. Clockwise (from top left), in the cocoon basin are two friendly, but devious souls, (Norm Blaedow, left and Jenn Steacy, right) ready to make your skin craw; can you remove your head to set in your lap? Well, this headless beauty (Laurie Ferguson) did and she was waiting for one and all to come along to help her put it back; the pitchfork plunger, (Cory Green left), jabs his instrument of choice into the midsection of victim (Christina Ward); and just when you think you have recovered from the Athens House of Haunts, along comes a ghoulish character (Mike Cotto), hanging from a cross. Photos by DOREEN BARNES

If she brings to those aspirations the same drive and dedication that has won her recognition from the Queen, there is little doubt Whitehouse will meet, and perhaps, exceed even her own expectations. But, she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it alone, just as she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t earn the Jubilee medal by herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been possible without the support of the community, my parents and my friends,â&#x20AC;? says Whitehouse.

Senator Hugh Segal speaks out in Gananoque against poverty pride in not being discovered, in not having anyone out there know that they are poor. After all, some of the worst discrimination practiced is against those living below the poverty line. Segal suggested that a basic minimum income would alleviate many of the problems experienced by the poor in Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can do this for seniors, why can we not do it for working age Canadians?â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canada ranks in the top five world-wide for how well we treat our seniors in terms of keeping them out of poverty. But for working age Canadians we are about 20th on the list, behind many countries, none as rich or established as Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some argue that a basic income floor beneath which no one was allowed to fall would reward lazy people who did not want to work. There is a problem with this mindless criticism. The vast majority of people who live beneath the poverty line in Canada have jobs. Some have two (or more). But they do not earn enough to pay rent, have warm clothes, transportation or appropriate food. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We spend over $160 billion every year in Ottawa and the provinces on income security yet the amount of people who are living in poverty hardly improves at all.â&#x20AC;?

EMC News - Silence fell over those gathered at St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church in Gananoque Oct. 22 as Senator Hugh Segal spoke on the issue of poverty in Canada and his suggestions on how to remedy the situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, and for 40 years, I have been campaigning for the kind of economic framework that deals with the worst scourge and most serious social and economic threat that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a safe place to call homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; continues to face â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that is the scourge and plague of poverty,â&#x20AC;? said the Senator for KingstonFrontenac-Leeds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poverty is what makes what should be a strong community weak; makes a potentially unified and coherent society divided and in pain. And here in Canada, while we have made progress, we can do much better.â&#x20AC;? Heads of organizations working to help the poor and members of local councils bent forward to nod and listen. The subject isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t new, the problem has existed as long as society itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way to fix (certain physical and genetic problems facing some individuals in our society),â&#x20AC;? said Segal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Housing first is the right answer, because for people who live on our streets in most Canadian cities donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend their time thinking about how to get a job. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend their

They spend their time thinking about where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to sleep that night, and whether theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get into line at the right mission at the right time in order to be there for dinner. This community, this country and province, are no stronger than those who are the most vulnerable among us.â&#x20AC;? He went on to state that the poor are often disabled, members of the First Nations or without much education. Most are too proud to let neighbours know their plight. They live

Children go to school without lunches, not because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve forgotten them, but because there was no food to give them in the first place. They do without warm winter clothing not through a sense of fashion, but because it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t available. But they will not say that. There is a fierce

Segal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By her calculations, an 8.5 per cent drop in hospital visits in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standards would save taxpayers $4 billion annually. And along with the positive health results, Dr. Forget found that teenagers stayed in school longer and the education enrolment in Dauphin surged. Teens no longer needed to drop out of school in order to help contribute to the family finances. And we all, right, left or centre, agree that an education is the foundation for economic success â&#x20AC;&#x201C; individually and collectively.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have more people looking for affordable housing in Ontario than the entire population of Leeds and Grenville,â&#x20AC;? said Leigh Bursey, councillor for the City of Brockville. He would like to see a funding brought forward with a combination of programs brought in, where a minimum income could be coupled with affordable housing. Others in the crowd also had ideas that joined well with the minimum income concept. Although there is no guarantee that poverty will end, the thinking is in place among those willing to implement it and reopen the grand MINCOME experiment.

Senatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan Segalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan would be to use something like the mid 1970s MINCOME program that was put into place in Dauphin, Manitoba. Over a fouryear period, residents of the agricultural community were guaranteed that, if their crops could not keep them at the poverty line or above, they would receive additional funding to bring them to that amount. The entire program, including benefits, researchers and staff to run it, cost only $17 million, and for the most part assisted the working poor. All residents qualified for this aid if needed, there were no substantial clawbacks of funds if a person continued to work, and the rules were manageable. The money could be used as the recipient felt was best. With such a plan in place and the availability of affordable housing, Segal believes that poverty as we now envision it would cease to exist. The documents and files from this original project are currently being scrutinized by Dr. Evelyn Forget of the University of Manitoba Health Sciences Centre, and her findings are encouraging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has found that in the period that MINCOME was administered, hospital visits including work-related injuries, domestic abuse and mental health visits dropped by more than eight per cent,â&#x20AC;? said

No clouded judgment, this film is a masterpiece

My Take BY MARK HASKINS

plant run by Lloyd Hooks (Hugh Grant). In our own time publisher Timothy Cavendish (Jim Broadbent) becomes imprisoned in a nursing home by his brother Denholme Cavendish (Hugh Grant). In the distant future we watch a clone, Sonmi 451 (Doona Bae), with the help of HaeJoo Chang (Jim Sturgess) learn the truth of existence, and begin a revolution. And in the very distant future as the last vestiges of humanity struggle to survive we witness Zachry (Tom Hanks)

and Meronym (Halle Berry) find hope. Each soul is connected. Each one shapes the others. A single act of kindness will eventually become a rebellion, and a killer will become a hero. Cloud Atlas is a bold story told on the grandest of scales. It isn’t the story of one character or of one lifetime, but of a number of characters through a number of lifetimes all connected in a myriad of ways. It moves fluidly back and forth across time, and from storyline to storyline.

It’s not an easy film to follow at first, but by the end you begin to see all the subtle ways everything fits together, and at the end you’re left utterly and completely awe struck. This is such a unique experience to see a character not just evolve over the normal course of a story, but to see that character’s soul evolve over the course of multiple lifetimes. It’s an astounding feat, and each and every actor

is magnificent. Hanks, Berry, Broadbent, Bae, Sturgess, Weaving, Whishaw, D’Arcy, Sarandon, and Grant are all spectacular. Visually stunning, dramatically breathtaking, Cloud Atlas is a singularly unique experience. It is without question a masterpiece. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

EMC Entertainment - Cloud Atlas is one of the most ambitious films I’ve seen. The depth and breadth of its story staggers the mind. Its scope brushes against the sublime. Its vision will haunt you long after the credits have faded. There’s no way to summarize this film in a few short paragraphs. I can tell you it takes place over the course of a number of lifetimes and

across centuries. It’s about the good and evil inside all of us. It’s about the choices we make, and how those choices can have far reaching consequences. It questions the dogma that the strong are the rightful rulers of the weak. If the story has a beginning it’s in 1849 where a young lawyer, Adam Ewing (Jim Sturgess), takes a sea voyage with Dr. Henrey Goose (Tom Hanks). We then come to the 1930s where a young composer, Robert Frobisher (Ben Whishaw), writes to his lover, Rufus Sixsmith (James D’Arcy), of his struggles to complete his masterpiece while under the thumb of the once great Vyvyan Ayrs (Jim Broadbent). It then moves to the seventies where reporter Luisa Rey (Halle Berry) investigates a mystery surrounding a nuclear power

Spencerville Haunted Hay Rides a great success celled and one cut a little short by rain. The misty, foggy evenings added an additional dimension to the spooky trek through the bush. A large and enthusiastic army of volunteers turned out every weekend to do their best to give the patrons a ride they won’t soon forget. As well as members of the Spencerville Agricul-

tural Society, their families and friends, the volunteers included a very dedicated group of students from St. Mary’s and South Grenville High Schools. Where else could students earn credit for community service hours by dressing up in costume, hiding in the bush and descending on wagonloads of visitors and scaring the daylights out

of them? As one student put it: “It wasn’t a good night unless we made three people cry - HaHaHa!” All proceeds from the Haunted Hay Rides will benefit the Spencerville Agricultural Society which puts on the annual Spencerville Fair every September. R0011714764_1101

EMC News – More than 2,000 people were chilled and thrilled by the Haunted Hay Rides in Spencerville this October.

City’s namesake, Major-General Sir Isaac Brock, commemorated on circulation coin EMC News - On the eve of the 200th anniversary of Major-General Sir Isaac Brock’s death on the battlefield at Queenston Heights, Niagara Falls MP Rob Nicholson, the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, unveiled a new Royal Canadian Mint circulation coin last month honouring his memory as a hero of the War of 1812. This is the first of four circulation coins which commemorate key historical figures who influenced the fight for Canada from 1812 to 1814. “Honouring the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 with this special circulation coin pays tribute to one of our greatest national heroes and a crucial moment on the road to Confederation,” said Minister Nicholson. “Our government encourages Canadians to take this unprecedented opportunity to learn more about our heroes and history and to take pride in our traditions by collecting this new circulation coin dedicated to War of 1812 hero Major-General Sir Isaac Brock.” The War of 1812 paved the way for Confederation. It was the fight for Canada and a defining moment in our country’s history that saw British regular forces, English and French-speaking militia, First Nations and Métis1 allies join together to defend our borders2. Without their courage and sacrifice, Canada as we know it would not exist. Major-General Brock died leading a charge against the Americans during the Battle of Queenston Heights on October 13, 1812 and earned the title “the hero of Upper-Canada.” “The Royal Canadian

Mint is committed to preserving memories of the people, places and events which tell the story of the Canadian experience and the remembrance of the heroes of the War of 1812 is a wonderful way to celebrate our proud values,” said Ian E. Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. “The name of MajorGeneral Sir Isaac Brock is synonymous with the heroic deeds of our forefathers who valiantly defended Canada 200 years ago and the Mint is delighted to have issued a 25-cent circulation coin in honour of this legendary hero of the War of 1812, for Canadians to collect and admire.” Limited to a mintage of 12.5 million coins, the Sir Isaac Brock 25-cent commemorative circulation coin began circulating on Oct. 13, 2012. The public is encouraged to look for it in their change or obtain it at face value on line at www.mint.ca/1812. The Mint has also released a number of exquisite precious metal collector coins to add to the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. On Oct. 2, 2012, the Mint issued a $4 face value 99.99% pure silver coin featuring a portrait of Major-General Sir Isaac Brock, set against an intricately engraved background consisting of the bilingual text “The War of 1812/La guerre de 1812.” This coin is also emblazoned by the engraved and painted Government of Canada War of 1812 logo. Limited to a mintage of only 10,000 examples world-wide, this coin retails for $49.95 CDN. Submitted by the Royal Canadian Mint.

Federal funding will help Gananoque attract global investors to create jobs and economic growth EMC News - Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville, on behalf of the Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, announced recently that Gananoque received $38,000 to help attract, retain and expand foreign direct investment. “I am pleased that we have been able to provide these funds to help Gananoque in its efforts to attract new investment into the community,” Brown noted in a press release. “These efforts are made to help replace the manufacturing jobs that disappeared over the past 15 years.” “The funding provided through ICCI has provided the Town of Gananoque the capacity to complete an industrial park feasibility study and work on our investment ready material. It is essential that our community remains competitive as we seek foreign direct investment,” explains Shelley Hirstwood, Economic Development Manager for Gananoque. Gananoque used the funding to become investment ready through the creation of investment promotional tools including a community profile, vacant properties inventory, industrial park feasibility study, investment support funding opportunities guide and additional pages added to the ‘Invest in Gananoque’ portion of the website. The most significant component of this project has been the industrial park feasibility study. “Our government is focused on what matters to Canadians: jobs, growth and long-term prosperity,” said Fast in the release. “Attracting foreign

investment is key to these efforts, and our government will continue to take steps to ensure Canada remains an investment destination of choice. From the lowest overall tax rate on new business investment in the G-7 to what the World Economic Forum has said for the past five years is the world’s soundest banking system, our government continues to create the conditions needed to attract the global investors who create jobs and new sources of economic growth and prosperity in our communities.” “Both the federal government and municipalities share the objective of bringing new investment to communities across Canada. That is why we are proud to support activities by Gananoque to attract investment. In these globally challenging times, we will continue to support initiatives that help bring jobs and prosperity.” The funding, which was announced nationally on Oct. 1, is provided under the Invest Canada-Community Initiatives (ICCI) program to help communities, organizations and economic development agencies across the country attract, retain and expand foreign direct investment. The program supports municipalities, non-profit organizations and public-private groups at the local level and works through partnerships and cost-sharing arrangements. Since 2006, the ICCI program (formerly known as the Community Investment Support Program) has helped grow Canada’s economy by supporting 394 municipalities and community organizations through 863 projects in every region of Canada.

Senator Runciman decries expected slaughter of horses

38 ST. LAWRENCE EMC - Thursday, November 1, 2012

EMC News - Two Senators from opposite sides of the aisle are teaming up to condemn an Ontario government policy that may lead to the deliberate killing of 7,500-13,000 horses next year. During hearings by the Senate’s Legal and Constitutional Affairs committee on a bill to legalize single-event sports betting, Liberal Senator George Baker and Conservative Senator Bob Runciman expressed alarm over the possible mass euthanization, which came up for discussion during testimony by officials from the Woodbine Entertainment Group, Canada’s largest racetrack operator. The horses will need to be euthanized as a result of the cancellation of the Slots at Racetrack Program, which gives a portion of proceeds from slots located at horse racing facilities to the racing and equine industries. The end of the program will result in the loss of more than $300 million to the industry, resulting in the closure of all but a handful of Ontario’s 17 racetracks. “This is nothing short of a massacre,” said Baker. “The

Ontario government’s decision, through their policy, to indirectly authorize the killing of so many horses is unconscionable.” Runciman, who has been sounding the alarm bells over the policy for several months, agreed. “Seventy-five hundred horses are collateral damage of a seat-of-the-pants policy that is costing 30,000 jobs and ruining a healthy industry. Ontarians should be outraged,” Runciman said. The program, in which race tracks and the horse-racing industry split 20 per cent of revenue from slot machines located at tracks, has been widely credited with stabilizing and rejuvenating the racing industry by allowing tracks to offer higher purses. At the same time, it adds $1.1 billion annually to provincial coffers. But Slots at Racetracks was cancelled with no consultation in the Ontario government’s spring budget. Slots have already been pulled from some tracks, with more scheduled to lose them next year as the government concentrates gambling in larger, urban casinos.

EMC Sports – Racing is in his blood. And this is helping propel Shane Billings to move up in the world of motor racing. Billings recently concluded his season at the Brockville Ontario Speedway, finishing in fifth place in the Stock division with 634 points. This is his third year racing and his best overall finish yet; previously he finished ninth and eighth respectively. During the 2012 racing season, he finished second three times – July 11, July 25 and Aug. 22. “It was the first time I finished second, I still haven’t got a first place finish yet,” said Billings. “That will happen next year.” He is already looking to 2013 with hopes to wind up in the top three overall and that coveted first place finish. He also hopes to travel and race on different tracks to gain more experience.

as hustling to prepare for the new season next spring. He is extremely grateful for the support of his sponsors who have helped him with everything from new tires to a new website. “I don’t think I could have done it without the support of my sponsors,” said Billings. “I want to give them a big thank you and I am looking for more sponsors for next year.”

WATSON - In loving memory of our dad, Carl, who passed away November 4, 2011. God looked around his Garden And found an empty space. He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garden must be beautiful He always takes the best! Our Guardian Angel, until we meet again Always missed, but never forgotten Love Nicole and Andrew

Jasmine: Cat of the Week

EMC News – Ontario’s annual flu immunization campaign continues to protect Ontarians from the flu despite a temporary suspension of two vaccines by Health Canada. “The flu shot remains the most effective and safe way to protect you and your family from seasonal flu,” said Dr. Arlene King, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health. “I encourage everyone to take advantage of the free influenza vaccines.” Late Friday, Dr. King sent a memo to public health units, pharmacies, doctors and other health care practitioners in the province asking them to temporarily suspend the use of two Novartis products (FluAd and Agriflu) as advised by Health Canada. Ontario’s influenza (flu) vaccine supplies are not overly affected by the temporary suspension of FluAd and Agriflu which represent only 18 per cent of Ontario’s supply.

According to a press release, Ontario offers two other publicly funded vaccines not affected by the federal suspension which make up the other 82 per cent of Ontario’s supply. Dr. King is working closely with her federal colleagues and provincial health partners to monitor this situation. Ontario’s flu shot is an annual immunization against the influenza flu viruses expected to circulate for that year. Flu immunization in Ontario commenced a few weeks ago and no serious or unexpected adverse health reactions have been reported for any of the vaccines being used, including those from Novartis. Ontarians who have already had their flu shots and have concerns can call Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000, TTY: 1-866-797-0007. For more information about the flu and Ontario’s flu campaign, visit http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/ public/programs/publichealth/flu/.

EMC Lifestyle - In June 2011 Jasmine was transferred into our shelter from another shelter that was overcrowded (if we didn’t accept her, her fate was no doubt sealed). Sadly, being a black cat in a shelter doesn’t get you a home quickly. Jasmine is a quiet girl who, appropriately, is one of the residents of the Quiet Room (a cage-less room for the timid or reserved cats, who live together in a colony). Luckily, the Quiet Room has a big window looking out onto fields with a table under the window where the cats can watch what happens outside and it has shelves at different heights around the walls to provide an outlet for running, jumping and playing chase. Even in a room with other cats Jasmine doesn’t seek out their company. She does, however, enjoy people time and gets annoyed if another cat tries to hone in on those few minutes when she gets a chance to interact. Given the right environment, she just might blossom into one of those cats who becomes deeply devoted to their human, making you the

Grumpies pound Blackhawks 11-5, INTERNET, youngsters get schooled in process When it comes to the

WE GIVE YOU

EMC Sports - Heading into Finch the Island City Blackhawks knew they would have their hands full as they introduced their kids to the highflying Grumpies hockey club. And boy did the high flying Finchmen live up to their billing. They put on a clinic on how to play the game. A lesson the young Blackhawks call-ups will not soon forget. The Grumpies took full advantage of an inexperienced Blackhawks line up and a few good breaks to hand the visitors their third consecutive loss 11-5. The Hawks now sport a disappointing 1-3-2 win/loss record thus far into the season. “This was a good game for our young lads to play in and to see how good some of the hockey teams are that we play. The last three games we’ve played have been against elite caliber hockey teams. I just hope our kids can learn to adjust their games accordingly,” Blackhawk management stated outside the team locker room after the game. “Our kids lack the junior hockey experience that our competitors seem to have. There is a big adjustment for our youngsters to this type of hockey. The junior hockey experience shows in the players’ speed, strength and the overall structure they have in their games. At this stage, our boys just need more experience to be more effective with their games,” management pointed out about his team’s younger players. The Island City gang fell behind 2-0 before ‘The Rookie’ Jordy Whiteland narrowed the gap to 2-1 as the first pe-

riod ended. The Grumpies came out in the middle frame a little more grumpy and dominant as they lit up Blackhawk call-up goalie Ryan Ball five times in the period to take control of the game with a commanding 7-2 lead heading into the third. “This was Ryan’s second game of the season and you can’t blame him for this loss. His timing was off a little but if he can get some more games under his belt he could be an asset for us going forward,” management continued. The Island City lads went into the third period with a mission, win that period. The team’s big line led the charge as ‘The Velvet Fog’ Rob Carter scored early in the frame and team captain J. R. ‘Buckleys’ Ryan scored a pair to pull the visitors to within three. The line’s left winger Wayne ‘The Champ’ Morrow was very instrumental as well in the team’s mini comeback. Unfortunately that’s as close as the Hawks could get as the Grumpies did their best as hosts to spoil the visitor’s momentum by scoring four more times in the final frame to secure the win. A few of the Blackhawk players had their comments on the team’s new youngsters and how they are coming along. Josh ‘KFC’ Brayton adds “Hey the kids will be alright, this is alot different hockey than they are used to playing. There is an adjustment period, I went through it myself. We are playing some really good hockey teams here.” ‘The Ageless Wonder’ Peter Culp maybe donning a new tag of “Prime Time” as

he went head over heels in attempt to stop a Grumpies’ forward from going to the net. He also had his take on the kid’s situation. “Our kids are coming along, they need to find their own game and believe in themselves. Once they get used to this style of game, we’ll be a better team for it.” Ryan also added his two cents worth on the topic, “I’m just glad our young guys experienced playing against a great team like the Grumpies. They have a lot of great players and they use each other out there all the time. They also have quite a few guys that played some junior hockey. I feel playing against these really good hockey teams will develop our young lads alot quicker. They just need to play smarter and let the puck do most of the work. Our kids saw that tonight first hand against the Grumpies.” The Hawks were fortunate that their veterans led the way in the scoring department. Ryan’s pair gives him four for the season, Carter scored his ninth while ‘Youngblood’ Jeff June notched his third. ‘The Rookie’ Whiteland lit the lamp for the second time this season. The Hawks host the Kemptville Classics this Saturday night at the Broadway Avenue Barn starting at 9 p.m. before heading out to Prescott the next morning for a date with their arch rival Prescott Old Timers. Last Sunday night the locals were in Morrisburg taking on the Iroquois Old Timers for the first time, reports on these three games will be available next week.

Bowling remains a viable option for youth today

Photo by LORRAINE PAYETTE

A roar of support

Gananoque Lions Club members Dave Charles and Murray Roantree (centre, in vests) present a donation from the club in the amount of $1,000 to Gananoque Youth Bowling at the Delaney Bowling Centre at 73 King St. E. in Gananoque on Oct. 13. Every time members of the group participate in other activities, such as tournaments and travel to play in other areas, there is always an additional fee to register players, ranging anywhere from $80 into the hundreds per per-

son. The club is involved in many fund raising activities throughout the year to help cover all these costs, such as Regal, Wilton cheese, and many other fundraisers. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes, and many local

ber is that we do not get any

funding from anywhere and the fact that just to run the YBC and to register is $1,000 a year,” said Steve Faunch. “The Lions Club has paid for that for us and if it weren’t for them, we might not have had a program this year. “We do this because we enjoy it,” continued Faunch, speaking of the volunteers. “Our kids bowl and we don’t want to see bowling disappear. It’s people such as the Lions Club, Wegmans, and a few others that give us cash donations which help in a big way to keep us going.” They only charge whatever the province tells them to for registration, currently $25 a year. Although they could charge more, they want to remain affordable for all, especially those whose families may be single parent, single income or otherwise challenged, making a good, clean sport available to all. A presentation was also made to Julie Shortall, whose husband died this past summer. “Chris Shortall was a devoted husband, father and supporter of our team, both in body and financially,” said Robert Welch. “We all miss him and wish only the best for his wife and family.” For more on the proor to enroll, please gram o go to http://delaneybowl.com/ or call bowl 613- 463-9541.

By LORRAINE PAYETTE EMC News - Once upon a time, when Elvis was King and Chuck Berry was introducing us to rock and roll, a young man would borrow his dad’s car, grease back his hair and call ahead to pick up his best girl for a Saturday evening date. By scrim ping and saving all week (not to mention doing chores and getting his homework in on time), he would have saved up about fifty cents to take her out for a few hours of good clean fun, and maybe share a pop. They would cruise down to the local bowling alley where they could have the lanes (and rent shoes) for the entire evening, meet their friends, indulge in a great time and still be home for curfew. Magical days, gone forever… Or not. The ages of the players and time of play may have changed a bit, but they can still join a league, bowl regularly, have hours of good clean fun and it still costs about fifty cents a week. Youth Bowling Canada at the Delaney Bowling Centre at 73 King St. E. in Gananoque offers all of that for a $25 a year registration fee. Sponsored by Tim Hortons, who provide uniforms amongst other things, the Timbits bowlers are young, eager athletes who spend their Saturday mornings building character, developing camaraderie, learning how to function in society and, perhaps best of all, knocking over pins. But that registration fee doesn’t even begin to cover the cost of enrolling in YBC. And that’s where service clubs like the Lions in Gananoque make all the difference. “As you know it takes a great deal of funds to run this program,” said Robert Welch. “We generate those on our own through different things. It costs a thousand dollars just to join the program. That’s before we even register anybody. I am pleased to announce that this year we were helped by the Lions Club.” Dave Charles and Murray Roantree presented a donation in the amount of $1,000 to the Tim Bits Bowlers. “On behalf of the Lions Club, we’re proud to present this cheque to these young bowlers in Youth Bowling Canada in hope that they will have many, many more seasons to come after this,” said Roantree. “We were so pleased when we had a chance to talk to Robert,” said Dave Charles, who looks after the charitable donations group within the Lions. “He came to talk to our whole club, and it was so nice to hear not only about all the kids that were bowling, but all the kids that wanted to bowl. Not every kid plays hockey, and I know that when my son was in Sarnia growing up, he was not a hockey player. I hadn’t played hockey as a kid either, and I understand that it just wasn’t his sport. It was very nice that bowling is available for those who want it. We want everyone to have a good time and a great season.”
