EMC News - That the son of famed former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau comes from a political family comes as news to nobody, but at a campaign fundraiser in Brockville last week, Justin Trudeau was quick to point out that his political blood lines run farther back than his famous father. “People forget that my grandfather, Jimmy Sinclair, represented Vancouver North from 1940 to 1958,” said Trudeau. The father of Trudeau’s mother, Margaret, James Sinclair was also Minister of Fisheries for a time and, says Trudeau, has helped shape the Liberal golden boy’s views on politics and public service. “Raised in a political family, I got to see first-hand just how much an impact politicians can and must have,” he said before an audience of Liberal party faithful at the home of Dr. Andy and Sharon Jordan in Brockville on Wednesday, Nov. 28. A sitting MP for the Montreal riding of Papineau, Trudeau is out and about raising money and support for his run at the leadership of the federal Liberal party, which See TRUDEAU page 2

1000 Islands Gananoque Chamber honours its best By TONY PALERMO

EMC Events – The 57th annual 1000 Islands Gananoque Chamber of Commerce Awards Celebration was held this past Friday, Nov. 30, at Caiger’s Resort in Rockport. The event was a way to formally recognize businesses and citizens who have made a difference in the region. “The awards ceremony is a way of getting recognition from your peers,” says Chamber treasurer and interim president Jacques O’Shea. “All seven of the award categories are community nominated, and then a panel comes to a consensus on who will win in each category.”

Federal Liberal leadership frontrunner Justin Trudeau enjoyed meeting and greeting his supporters during a campaign fundraiser held last Wednesday, Nov. 28, in Brockville.

While there were several outstanding achievements, O’Shea says that one of the most prestigious recognitions was the Citizen of the Year award, which was awarded posthumously to Jim Boltin. In describing this award, the Chamber says this award recognizes a citizen

who has shown an ongoing commitment to the community – and certainly Boltin was well known for his volunteer work with the Gananoque Lions Club, the Thousand Islands Minor Football League and many other community functions. Jason Henderson of Gananoque Secondary School presented the award to Boltin’s daughter Jamie. “Jimmy made everything look easy,” said Henderson. “He loved everything that he did and how he accomplished it. He was selfless and loved being involved in the community.” Henderson said that Boltin gave everything his own personal touch. As an example, Boltin would hand deliver letters instead of mailing them. “And he never said no,” said Henderson. “It was always when, where and what do you need?” Another amazing award recipient was 12 yearold McKenna Modler. She received the Junior See AWARDS pg 2

of capable contenders, among them former astronaut Marc Garneau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some excellent candidates with some

great CVsâ&#x20AC;? said Trudeau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadians are lucky to have a whole bunch of options.â&#x20AC;? Those gathered at the Jordan household last week, though, were clearly in Trudeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camp, and a 15-minute campaign-style speech met with enthusiastic approval. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need a fresh way of looking at things,â&#x20AC;? said Trudeau. Decrying what he sees as the politics of division prevailing in Canada and the polarization of the electorate along ideological lines, Trudeau suggested that the Liberal party must bring Canadians together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The politics of division leave us weakened,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What works is a balanced approach.â&#x20AC;? Noting that Canada is as strong and successful as it is because of the differences amongst its people, not despite those differences, Trudeau suggested that the Liberal party must begin forging connections within and across communities and in so doing regain the trust of the population. Citing a need of greater openness, compassion and respect in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political environment, Trudeau also acknowledged that it will take some hard work to rebuild the Liberal party to the level of popularity it once enjoyed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is only one thing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to allow Canadians to once again trust us as Liberals,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take a level of belief in bringing people together.â&#x20AC;?

Gananoque BIA awards volunteers, unveils new website By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC News - Gananoqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BIA had a double event in store as it presented its Volunteer Appreciation Awards and launched its new website, Nov. 22. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without our volunteers, the BIA wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist,â&#x20AC;? said Maria Pinard, chair of the BIA. Recognized for their service to the community over the past year were Carson Murphy, Ed Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal, Lynn Brice, Kathrine Christensen of TIAP, and Gary Perrin of MyFM. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything that I hear is very positive,â&#x20AC;? said Pinard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the positive things that we have done this year is finding Lisa Bird, our BIA coordinator. The businesses really are pulling together and they really care about their BIA. It is hard to come to all the meetings, but I feel there is a huge passion for what we can accomplish.â&#x20AC;?

The BIA has also applied for and received several grants over the past year, one of which from the Futures Development program allowed for the hiring of an intern. He

Harper promotes his neoliberal ideology through “free trade agreements”. The problem is that these agreements are more about the transfer of power to corporations than about trade. They result in greater inequality across Canada. Google neoliberalism. Respond to Canadians@ripnet.com

The YMCA of Brockville and Area celebrated its Movember fundraising efforts with a special wrap up event, Nov. 30. Above, Linn Rylands of Elite Spa and Boutique, Brockville, is seen trimming off Jim Cooper’s ‘mo’. Cooper is the chair of the local YMCA board of directors and also raised the most amount of money throughout the month bringing in $1,155. In total the YMCA team, consisting of 24 team members, brought in $1,840. More cash is yet to come however, so that total will grow. Funds raised go towards men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. Left: Melanie Gardner of Elite Spa and Boutique, prepares to cut off Carolyn Porter’s ponytail that day. Porter brought in the most donations for the female team members with a total of $135.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Documentaries tell stories of Canada’s military heritage

DEAR EDITOR: I am a member of The War Amps Operation Legacy, which consists of young members and graduates of the Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program who are dedicated to preserving and commemorating Canada’s military heritage by teaching younger generations about our nation’s wartime history. The War Amps has produced a number of internationally award-winning documentaries about Canada’s military heritage. D-Day: The Story of the Canadian Assault Troops tells

the story of how the Canadian troops got farther inland than any other force. The story is told by a soldier who fought with the troops in Normandy and gives a Canadian perspective on this important day in Canadian history. I encourage all of you to learn more about Canada’s history by means of The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries, which can be ordered at waramps.ca. Sincerely, Jenny Fredenburgh

EMC Editorial – While Christmas parties and friendly get togethers have already begun for this “festive” season, the message remains the same. Don’t drink and drive – stay alive. Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) programs will be and have already started across the province. The Ontario Provincial Police as well as local police departments, including the Brockville Police Service, undertake this initiative every year to check for impaired drivers on roadways. There are so many options out there for those who choose to have a beverage or two, options to get them home safely. Take a cab or have a designated driver take you home. Really there is no safe limit for alcoholic intake, just because you have only had one or two doesn’t necessarily mean that hasn’t put you over the limit, or that you aren’t a risk on the roads. The RIDE campaign originally began in 1977 in Etobicoke. It has worked its way across the province, led by police in many communities. The campaign involves police spot checks, stopping vehicles and checking drivers for signs of impairment. Officers across the province dedicate their time and energy to the program, one that last year, in OPP jurisdiction, saw 551 persons issued warn range suspensions and 652 people charged with impaired, over 80 or refusal. Why are the numbers still so high? Not everyone it appears is getting the message. It is a message which really should be considered all year round, not just around the holiday. When getting behind the wheel of your car, truck or whatever vehicle you may be driving – remember it is a huge piece of machinery, a “monster” as one OPP officer once described it. Ensure you are handling it with care, keeping in mind your own safety and the safety of others you may come across on any road or street. Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada estimates that in 2009 a minimum of 1,074 fatalities in motor vehicle crashes were impairment-related. Keep the holidays festive. Prevent tragedies and collisions from occurring. Either have those few drinks and find an alternative way home, or don’t drink and be a designated driver. The choice is yours. Ensure you make the right one for yourself, any passengers you may have and for all others on the road.

Turkey Fair day was either a make or break for family EMC Lifestyle – Turkey Fair day. Once a year, farmers from far and wide converged on the town of Renfrew for what they all hoped would be a prosperous day. Ideally, all the fowl would be sold, and that would mean a brighter Christmas at a time when money was as scarce as hens’ teeth. Of course it wasn’t only turkeys that were taken into town: geese, eggs, butter, fresh cream, and always on our big flat-bottomed sleigh would be Mother’s sticky buns, which were usually the first to be sold. Turkey Fair day was also on a Saturday, so there were many hands to help with getting everything loaded on the sleigh, preparing a hearty lunch and making sure everyone had gone to the outhouse at the last minute, and was well wrapped up for the long, freezing day ahead. There was no sleeping in on Turkey Fair day. We were roused before dawn, because

Father wanted to claim a good spot on the main street. Sales depended on where you parked the sleigh. Too far down Raglan, in either direction, meant you would be lucky to get rid of everything you had brought in from Northcote. The people who lived in town weren’t about to walk beyond the main business core. Once we claimed our spot, Father would unhitch the team and walk it down to the drive shed at the south end of town, and we were ready for business. The stores opened early that day, which delighted my sister Audrey and me, because we didn’t want to hang around the sleigh… we wanted to start at one end of the street, and work our way through every store. We went into stores we would never dream of entering any other time. Who could afford a store like Frasers? Just the rich people of Renfrew, that’s who. So Audrey and I would go in. The store always smelled of

lemons for some reason, and of the newness of clothes, and there was always a big bowl of peppermints on the counter by each register. These candies were little round discs, dusty with peppermint powder. My sister and I always grabbed one each after we had circled the store looking at the beautiful clothes. At the “rich people’s stores,” as Audrey and I called them, they seemed to know we weren’t there to buy anything, because no one ever came up to us to offer help. That suited us just fine. By the time noon hour rolled around, we were ready for lunch, and ready to head over to the CPR station to go to the bathroom. I never saw Mother or Father eat. And I

have no idea if they did, but we five kids were each handed a brown paper bag (saved of course from a purchase at Briscoe’s General Store) just as the town clock struck the noon hour. Through the generosity of the Chinese Restaurant, we were allowed to eat our lunch in one of the booths inside where it was warm. Good people, Mother called them. After we had eaten our plain jelly sandwich, we were more than ready to visit the station to use its facility. This was the one point in the day I dreaded.

The whole place was painted a sickly green, and smelled of strong disinfectant. Audrey and I used the bathroom as quickly as possible, so that we could head back to the main street. My sister always went to the counter and said thank you, but the station agent never raised his head. That afternoon, Turkey Fair day was coming to an end. I was too scared to ask Mother if everything she had brought in on the sleigh had sold. But I could usually tell from the look on her face. Everett would be sent to bring the horses from the drive shed, and Father would hitch them up to the sleigh, and we would pile onto the blankets, which had been laid

out over a straw bed. They would be covered with white flour bag sheets at the start of the day so that everything offered for sale would look its best and look meticulously clean. Audrey would fold up the sheets. With Mother and Father on the one seat on the sleigh, and we five crowded onto the bed, we would head out for Northcote. It didn’t take long for the sun to fade, and by the time we reached the Northcote Side Road the daylight would be gone. Father would light a lantern and hang it on the post at the front of the sleigh. Only then would Mother tell us what kind of day it had been. If it was a good one, we would sing all the way home. If things hadn’t gone as well as expected, we were all very quiet. But whatever was realized at Turkey Fair day, it was enough to tide us over for another spell… and Mother would say, “It’s more than we had yesterday.”

Every class, all 211 students at Vanier Public School, collaborated to make a poster that exemplified the Rotary EarlyAct Four-Way Test; is it the truth, is it fair to all concerned, will it build goodwill and better friendships and will it be beneficial to all concerned? The calendar was made from these posters which EarlyAct president Brianna Vanderkloet, treasurer Curtis Pike and community service Emma Onstein are holding. The EarlyAct calendars are $10 each or two for $18 and are available at Vanier Public School, 40 Vanier Drive, Brockville, 613-342-8081, until Dec. 10. Calendars are printed to order and must be picked up before Dec. 21.

EMC News – Jonker, the two-and-a-half year-old Labrador Retriever and his owner Christel Klocke, of Brockville, came in second at the DockDogs 2012 World Championships. Held Nov. 15 to 18, in Dubuque, Iowa, Klocke and her dog won the award in the Speed Retrieve Turbo category with a time of 6.002 seconds. She first tried Jonker out in this sport last year in Kingston. “He loved it,” she said. This was the first full summer for Klocke in which she showed the speedster. As a member of the Ontario DockDogs, she has taken him to shows all across the province, always placing well.

side to retrieve it, all while being timed. “He’s very sporty, very agile,” she described of Jonker. In fact, because of his impressive showing, he was one of the few dogs chosen to perform during the special evening gala, held as part of the world championships event.

“I was very proud of that,” she nodded. Klocke was a member of Team Canada. The championships themselves involved close to 400 dogs, she explained. Klocke moved to Brockville 14 years ago from Toronto where she was a teacher.

nance and policing. Strengths and weaknesses were examined as well as organizational structures and efficiencies. An earlier strategic plan, in 2006, revealed the city’s population is shifting to an “older population demographically”, resulting in a drop in crime rates. Better building codes and effective inspections have also resulted in a dip in the number of fires, Henderson said. “Our emergency services contracts are increasing. They are eating up a bigger portion of our budget every year,” he said. As an example, the mayor pointed to the year 2002, when police and fire budgets accounted for 32 per cent of the city levy. Fast forward to 2011 and that number rose to 37 per cent. Some of the recommendations coming forward through the study included early retirements, managing overtime, looking at the management structure, outsourcing and others. Henderson’s own suggestion as another option was to look at an OPP costing for the city. For the fire department suggestions were similar, including looking at early retirements and perhaps the most “contentious,” being the review of a composite force. The Orangeville, Ontario model has been examined – a community of 26,000 people whose fire department features 32 volunteer and 10 fulltime firefighters. “We have to keep walking forward with that (looking into a composite force). It is a more cost effective model,” Henderson emphasized. “We like that model. We want to move to that model.” Other shifts have included a loss of employment in the city - between 2002 and ‘08 manufacturing jobs were “getting eaten up.” Prior to that “manufacturing traditionally in Brockville was our biggest tax base.” The analysis undertaken for economic development looked at this shift and the emerging markets – tourism, services, healthcare, retirement, and food. “The challenge is how do See REVIEW page 13

Neufeld is a female-tomale transsexual, and spoke first on the definition of some commonly used, but perhaps rarely really understood terms, and then told his own story. The evening, hosted by PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning) Brockville and the Brockville Child and Youth Worker Program, attracted a large audience. Stressing “people are no different in spite of their differences,” above all else strive to be happy, Neufeld said. “Life is good and quality of life is better,” he described. Self-acceptance, self-confidence and having integrity are key. Born a baby girl to a religious family, Neufeld was raised in a church where women covered their heads and his mother was a housewife. Even so, his parents were also free thinkers. He was allowed to

Calvin Neufeld is seen here during a presentation at St. Lawrence College, Nov. 22. Neufeld is a femaleto-male transsexual. He spoke first on the definition of some commonly used, but perhaps rarely really understood terms, and then told his own story.

choose his own clothing, and play with the toys with which he wished to play. “And dressed and acted more or less as a boy,” he commented. In Neufeld’s book, “Meet Calvin”, illustrated with stick figures, he writes, “I grew up feeling different. I didn’t feel the same. It didn’t feel right for me to play the girly game, so I played with the boys and thought girls were…. Well…. Weird.” Neufeld wasn’t quite sure what to do with dolls “but tie them up and pop their limbs off.” Hitting puberty was hard, as he didn’t feel like a girl. But yet his male friends all of a sudden were acting differently towards him. Not knowing what to do, “I had to make a go of being a girl.” Describing the time as both “oblivious” and “clueless” for him, he had no idea there was any other alternative to living this way. “School didn’t provide sexed and I skipped biology,” he commented with a shrug. He started “growing in all the wrong places” and bras were forced upon him. He felt completely unnatural as he See CALVIN page 19

Brockville Mayor David Henderson, spoke on the city’s External Service Delivery Review at the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce’s Mayor’s Update Breakfast held Nov. 28 at The Brockville Country Club.

we make sure it’s targeted and stay on it?” Henderson said of economic development. One of the recommendations was to find priorities in this area. The organizational structure for the city was also examined and “some staff changes” were made, resulting in savings, he noted. Opening the floor to questions from the audience, Denis Savage, of Brockville, asked what the pros and cons are to the city becoming a retirement com-

munity. Henderson noted while the city hasn’t been targeting retirees, the strategic plan points to targeting young families to Brockville. He did say, however, the city is “the perfect place” for retirees from locations such as Ottawa and regardless of whether the city is targeting them to come, “they are coming.” Other questions that morning surrounded infrastructure and joining with other areas in economic development projects.

Put THIS in their stockings!

Prescott Golf Club Offer for New According to legend, three young and penniless women hung their freshly laundered stockings to dry over the mantelpiece. On Christmas Eve, Saint Nicholas threw some gold coins down their chimney, and the coins landed in the ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stockings. And so the tradition began. To preserve a whisper of the origins of this tradition, place some gold foilwrapped chocolate coins in your childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas stockings. In the olden days, oranges were a rare winter treat and many of our greatgrandparents were excited to receive a foil-wrapped orange in their stockings on the big morning. Today, that tradition can be carried on with a real tangerine or with a chocolate orange, foil wrapped and ready to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;peeledâ&#x20AC;? into sections. Other surprises to keep in mind as stocking stuffers are small items that you usually say â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? to the rest of the year: that little toy car you always

refuse to buy when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re grocery shopping, or the little troll dolls at the cashierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s counter of the drug store. Gift certificates for a day of skiing or a movie with popcorn at the movie theatre are sure to be hits as well. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to hunt down official gift cards; create your own on the computer or craft one with cardboard and markers. For teenagers, trial size personal care and beauty products are ideal, including bubble bath, creams, shower gels, or shampoos for sports bags. Of course, gift cards for cell phone minutes or for music downloads from the Internet will also make them very happy. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget the adults in your life: you might tuck in some sample bottles of alcohol, such as ice cider or champagne, a fruit or flower scented massage oil for the ladies, and a woody or marine fragrance for the men.

Gifts for apprentice chefs At gift-giving time, amateur chefs are really easy to please. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because having the right tools is a cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real secret ingredient. When shopping, all you have to do is keep in mind two key words: preparation and cooking. To make food preparation more enjoyable, a set of good-quality knives would make any home chef happy. Even better: offer individual professional knives. A real chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knife can cost between $50 and $300, so to receive one as a gift is a real treat. Other ideas that spring to mind include a good vegetable peeler, a selec-

UĂ&#x160;7, /-Ă&#x160;UĂ&#x160;/, -Ă&#x160;UĂ&#x160;",  /-Ă&#x160;UĂ&#x160; UĂ&#x160;/  Ă&#x160; /, -Ă&#x160;UĂ&#x160;*" - //-Ă&#x160;UĂ&#x160; 9  Ă&#x160;UĂ&#x160; UĂ&#x160;/Ă&#x160; - /-Ă&#x160; Ă&#x160;-"Ă&#x160;1 Ă&#x160;", Ă&#x160;U Serving Brockville and Area For Over 80 Years!

tion of cutting boards, or spatulas and high density wooden spoons. For amateur pastry chefs, a set of piping bags for decorating cakes is another ideal choice. You could also opt for kitchen appliances worthy of a real chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if your budget is large enough, that is. Then again, there is usually a vast price and quality range, so something for any size of wallet can be found. A food processor or a stand mixer is sure to thrill, or more modest gifts include a blender, ideal for soups and purĂŠes, or a mandolin for finely slicing foods. A couple of hints: donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let yourself be impressed by the size of the box and avoid buying cheap products. A real amateur chef will appreciate a small, well-made appliance more than a large, inefficient machine. Lastly, think cooking and think quality! While some people would be thrilled to receive a simple sandwich grill, others would prefer a large professional-quality wok or a frying pan with a heavy base or made of ceramic. A miniature frying pan designed to cook eggs is also a great idea for those who love a cooked breakfast.

NEWS

By EMC STAFF

EMC News - Ontario roads have become a little bit safer in the past two years, according to a new study from Allstate Insurance Company of Canada, and Brockville is leading the way. The fourth annual Ontario Safe Driving Study released recently, looks at collision claims from Allstate Canada customers across the province and found Ontario drivers had 3.3 per cent fewer collisions from July 1, 2010, to June 30, 2012, than in the previous 24 month period. Brockville took the top spot as the community with the lowest collision rate (3.06 per cent). This is the second time Brockville topped the Ontario Safe Driving Study. Not only was Brockville the community with the lowest collision rate, it also had the second largest improvement, a 21.01 per cent decrease, to its collision frequency between the two time periods. Brockville Mayor David Henderson commented the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranking is a testament to the local Brockville Police Service, its programs and the people of the community. The presentation of a plaque from Allstate Insurance took place at a special ceremony, Nov. 28 in Brockvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council Chambers. Henderson felt the study results are a â&#x20AC;&#x153;good endorsementâ&#x20AC;? for the city and â&#x20AC;&#x153;at the end of the day less people are hurt,â&#x20AC;? when drivers are driving safely. Brockville Police Service Chief of Police John Gardiner pointed out Brockville came in tops amongst 46 communities featured in the study. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing routine about a motor vehicle collision,â&#x20AC;? he said. At times they can be amongst the most difficult and tragic calls to which officers respond. Officers do their best to provide both education and enforcement for road safety, Gardiner commented, saying it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of our top priorities.â&#x20AC;?

His journey through the health care system, was a nightmare. Delays and barriers were everywhere it seemed. He did have two operations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a

Startling statistics Earlier in the evening, he presented some startling statistics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; three out of four transsexuals have been suicidal. Over 80 per cent of â&#x20AC;&#x153;LGBTâ&#x20AC;? youth have reported verbal harassment at school and 20 per cent reported physical attacks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These people are victims of the sense people have that it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t okay to be gay,â&#x20AC;? he commented. He went on to highlight, the number of hate crimes in Canada which were motivated by sexual orientation more than doubled from 2007 to 2008, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;were the most violent of hate crimes.â&#x20AC;? He stressed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are not these freaks of nature.â&#x20AC;? However, having to deal with anger, hatred and misunderstanding from society â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the hardship makes a person grow stronger and more loving, he claimed. Getting teary eyed, he said society needs to move from negative attitudes, to not just acceptance, but nurturing. The beginning of Neufeldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation included his providing for the gathered audience, definitions of such terms as lesbian, transgender, intersex and many others. One of the terms he spoke of was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;queer.â&#x20AC;? Saying many people have experienced it being used in such a â&#x20AC;&#x153;violentâ&#x20AC;? way, but in his mind, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is such a wonderful term.â&#x20AC;? A term, he hopes can one day be used again in a healthy way. In going over the long list of words and definitions, he stopped and commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;there are as many ways to be as there are human beings.â&#x20AC;? Roughly ten per cent of the population is â&#x20AC;&#x153;LGBâ&#x20AC;?, the same percentage that are left handed, he pointed out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We used to describe left handed people as evil,â&#x20AC;? now left handed people are not discriminated against. Various phobias were described as well, however it all boils down to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;discomfortâ&#x20AC;? people feel and perhaps a lack of understanding, he said. Neufeld is currently living in Ontario with wife Sharon and pets. PFLAG Canada Brockville features monthly meetings, the fourth Thursday of every month at the Brockville Public Library.

Brockville takes top spot in driving study for second year in a row

began to grow a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bubble buttâ&#x20AC;? and an â&#x20AC;&#x153;hour glass figure.â&#x20AC;? Figuring the feelings would pass, he went on living life as he could. But they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pass and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away. In time, actually, they got much worse and he began feeling like he was not only lying to others, but to himself as well. He felt as if he had erased himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The damage this caused was much more serious. It made me confused, mad, angry and sick,â&#x20AC;? he recalled. For years he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat, or when he did he would throw it back up. Hating his body, he hated himself and everyone else around him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; life as well. He isolated himself and became just a shell of a person. In university most days he stayed at home and simply slept the day away. He rarely went to class. But one day he did, and it was this day a face stood out in the crowd. Sharon, the woman who would one day become his wife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She woke me up. It was love at first sight,â&#x20AC;? he recalled with a light in his eye. This stage of life he describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;happier.â&#x20AC;? Sharon believed happiness was the most important thing in life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It amazes me how long it took to figure out happiness leads to quality of life and unhappiness leads to the opposite.â&#x20AC;? Before meeting Sharon, he had been obsessed with â&#x20AC;&#x153;the person my own biology expected of me.â&#x20AC;? She brought him a gift â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the gift of being able to be free, free to love and be loved. This freedom also allowed for changes to be made. Gradual at first. He began to change his wardrobe. Then he began to let out some of the internal, â&#x20AC;&#x153;whiningâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the desire to stop shaving his legs, about wanting to stop wearing womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing. Sharon encouraged him to do what made him happy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so he did both â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he stopped shaving and he started buying menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I became more comfortable with who I am and the body I had to deal with,â&#x20AC;? he commented. Fears ranged from rejection from everyone, to wondering if he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;completely insane,â&#x20AC;? he said with a laugh. A few years later, the two got married which of course presented its own share of complications. Two weeks after the wedding he came out as a transsexual. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not all the changes were for the better,â&#x20AC;? he recalled, noting the loss of friends and the church community. But moving on, he began to rebuild. Spending most of his life fighting what he was, which resulted in disastrous results, he discovered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;anyone can take whatever crap cards they are dealt and make a play of it.â&#x20AC;? Accepting what life is and making it as good as it can possibly be, he suggested. Life doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always go the way every one might plan, but working with what they are given, striving towards a goal of happiness and quality â&#x20AC;&#x201C; anything can be achieved.

hysterectomy as well as chest reconstructive surgery. The chest reconstructive surgery was very welcome â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as he had been binding his chest for the past several years. He did have to raise the funds to have the surgery performed.

Brockville took the top spot as the community with the lowest collision rate for the second time in the Ontario Safe Driving Study by Allstate Insurance Company of Canada. At left, Brockville Police Service Chief of Police John Gardiner, and at right Brockville Mayor David Henderson, accept a plaque signifying the achievement from Angela Hay, agency manager for the Allstate Insurance Company of Canada, Brockville. As a testament to keeping traffic as a top priority, the police service is re-introducing the STEP (Selective Traffic Enforcement Program). The initiative will be continued in 2013. The public is being asked to participate in terms of providing their opinions on what are the top traffic concerns for the city. According to the Brockville Police website, â&#x20AC;&#x153;STEP is a combined education and enforcement program designed to reduce highway traffic offences. STEP has successfully reduced the number of fatal and serious motor vehicle injuries across Canada and the United States.â&#x20AC;? The community is encouraged to take part in a survey online. Voting takes place between Nov. 27 and Dec. 28. The top 12 traffic concerns identified will be highlighted throughout 2013. The survey can be found by visiting the Brockville Police website, http://www.brockvillepolice. com. The study Chatham was the third most improved community with a 16.67 per cent decrease. Sarnia was the most improved with a 24.69 per cent decrease in collision frequency.

Allstate Canada created the study to generate discussion about driving behaviour in Ontario and to help keep roads and communities safer for everyone by emphasizing the importance of safe driving habits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pleased to see fewer collisions in the province. Whether this is because of an increased awareness of the dangers of handheld devices starting to take effect, drivers reducing their speed, increased police activity or other influences we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet know, we hope to see this trend continue,â&#x20AC;? says Saskia Matheson of Allstate Canada. When analyzing the data for the Ontario Safe Driving Study, Allstate Canada noted a worrying trend about when collisions take place and the severity of injuries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ontarians may be surprised to learn that our claims data shows, and this is backed up by provincial road safety studies, that more fatal collisions happen when conditions are clear and roads are dry,â&#x20AC;? says Matheson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Speed is often the issue.â&#x20AC;? Though winter typically sees the most car crashes for drivers in the province, it is the summer months when collisions are most deadly. The Ontario Road Safety Annual Report released

earlier this year (2009 data) shows that July had the highest incidence, 10.9 per cent, of fatal collisions. Surprisingly, 79.8 per cent of all fatal collisions in Ontario happen when driving conditions are clear, while 12.8 per cent of fatal collisions happen in rain and 3.7 per cent in snow. Allstate Canada reminds drivers that collisions can happen at any time of the year, not just in bad weather conditions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We encourage all drivers to be attentive, sensible and patient behind the wheel to help keep our roads safer for drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists,â&#x20AC;? adds Matheson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep your hands on the wheel, your eyes on the road, and your mind on the job.â&#x20AC;? Study methodology Allstate Canada conducted an in-depth analysis of company collision data to determine the safest communities in Ontario based on the frequency of collisions. The study spans a 24-month period beginning July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2012 and also offers a comparison to the data from July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2010. To ensure the data provides a realistic outlook of what is happening on Ontario roadways only communities with at least 900 cars insured by Allstate Canada during the 24-month period were included in the study. Claims data is limited to collisions for which there was a payout; claims for incidents such as break-ins or vandalism are not included in this analysis. Two-year periods were chosen to provide a larger sample for more meaningful analysis. Survey data ranks frequency of collisions, not severity of accident. Collision data can be traced back to the registered car address. Allstate Canada is committed to making a positive difference in the communities in which it operates and has partnered with organizations such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD Canada), Crime Stoppers, United Way and Junior Achievement.

Local volunteer driver receives dedication award for outstanding service EMC News - Maurice (Moe) Marshall was recently awarded the Celebrating Dedication Award to recognize his outstanding efforts as a Canadian Cancer Society Volunteer Driver. His good nature, dedication and genuine concern for people going through cancer treatment is exceptional. He goes well above and beyond anything ever asked of him, even getting up at 3 a.m. to drive a client to Toronto several times. Although driving such a distance is a rare request for Society volunteers, Moe was happy to help out. Marshall got involved eight

years ago when he retired and had some time on his hands. He got into a discussion with a friend about the Canadian Cancer Society’s transportation program. The discussion spurred Marshall to look into the program, and volunteer as a driver for patients who need to attend cancer treatments. That was almost eight years ago, and Marshall still regularly drives cancer patients to Kingston, Ottawa, and occasionally Toronto. “I don’t think I was even actually looking for something to do,” he said. “We had a discussion, and I enjoy driving.”

“I said ‘Well, here’s a chance to do something good….” His dedication earned him recognition recently from the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit of the Canadian Cancer Society. “I’ve really enjoyed being able to help, and also I’ve enjoyed the people,” Marshall stressed. “A lot of the people, I know – Brockville isn’t a huge town.” He said he was surprised by the recognition and plaque from the Society. “I don’t know that I was doing anything (special),” he admitted. Marshall said potential

drivers need to realize that patience is important, as few of the drives last only a few minutes. He usually stays at the hospital during the clients’ treatments, although sometimes he will run errands if the treatments last a few hours. “I enjoy that time just meeting people (at the hospital),” he admitted. Marshall has driven everyone from young children with their parents to very elderly patients. “What I’ve found with 99.9 per cent of them is that they’re extremely positive,” he said. “Sure, they have sad moments, but it really doesn’t

Last year, the society’s 79 volunteer drivers drove 318,212 kilometres, which each trip costing an average of just more than $60 due to the long distances travelled in eastern Ontario. The Canadian Cancer Society averages 24 new clients each month using the transportation program. The average cancer treatment lasts seven weeks, with a minimum of 14 trips. The program cost over $95,000 last year.

seem to matter what stage of cancer (they have) – they’re upbeat and full of hope.” He said some patients prefer not to talk during the drives, while others like to chat. “I feel them out and let them decide the course of the conversation,” he explained. Over the last couple of years, Marshall has slowed down in his volunteer drives due to back problems and other physical issues. In the early years, he said, Brockville also had only three drivers, so he would find himself driving a patient to Kingston in the morning and Ottawa in the afternoon of the same day. “One of the things I never like to do is say no,” he admitted. The people have kept him driving, and he has seen dedication up close. “It’s the experience and the interaction with the clients – and also the staff in the cancer units there,” he said. “I’ve never seen a more dedicated group of individuals. “They’re all very caring people.” Volunteers needed The Lanark, Leeds and Grenville office of the Canadian Cancer Society is always looking for more volunteer drivers, with a particular need in Smiths Falls, Kemptville and the Rideau Lakes area.

EMC News - Fears that the sacrifices of soldiers, sailors and airmen of the past will be forgotten by the younger generation might well be laid to rest by the enthusiastic response of area youth to this year’s Remembrance Day poster, poetry and essay contest. “It’s a record,” says Lillian McNamee, third vice-president of the Brockville Legion –Branch 96. More than 350 young people, from Grade One through high school took part in the Brockville Legion’s annual Remembrance Day competition, and last Friday, Nov. 30, a big crowd gathered at the Legion’s Lt. Col. Thain Wendell MacDowell VC, DSO Auditorium to see the winners announced. “There were some excellent entries,” said McNamee. “It’s quite a competition.” Students from nine of the 12 schools in Brockville participated in the contest in the primary, junior, intermediate and senior categories. Winners were selected in each age group for colour posters, black and white posters, poems and essays. Poems had to be 32 lines in length and essays 500 words. “Our judges all deserve a tremendous amount of recognition for the work they did,”

In front of a large crowd last Friday, Nov. 30, Brockville Legion president Don Bain (left) and Poppy Trust chair Joe Napper (right) helped present awards to 34 students who were selected winners of the Legion’s annual Remembrance Day poster, poem and essay contest, including Rosie Perrin-Woods, whose poem took first place in the Junior poetry division. says McNamee. Seven volunteers were tasked with scrutinizing each of the entries and coming to a consensus about which entrant should take home first, second or third prize. There were four judges for the posters and three for the poems and essays. “The decisions made tonight were not easy,” said McNamee. “There were a lot of good entries.”

The three winners in each category received a beautifully-rendered certificate, with calligraphy done by Julia Armstrong, and a cash prize provided through the Legion’s Poppy Fund. The Poppy Fund, made possible through public donations in the lead-up to Remembrance Day, is not part of the Legion’s general account and money from the fund cannot be used for the maintenance

and operation of the branch but rather is earmarked for very particular uses. Money from the Poppy Fund can be used only to support or assist veterans and their families or to fund programs intended to foster interest in remembrance activities among youth. The poster, poetry and essay contest certainly meets the latter condition. “It’s really good to see the youth learning about remem-

brance and carrying it on,” said Legion president Don Bain. Winners in the black and white poster category were: Noah Peter Aube (first), Liam Samuel Kuhlmann (second) and Madison Hutt (third) in the primary category. In the junior category, the winners were Olivia Gleason (first), Sam Binkle (second) and Alexandra Worden (third). At

Winners in the poetry contest were: Rosie PerrinWoods (first), Mackenzie Hutt (second) and Harley Elliott (third) in the junior division. At the intermediate level, the winners were Hannah Plotz (first), Brandon Livingston (second) and Jacob Chinyaradzo (third). In the senior grades the winners were Marissa Nicole Evans (first), Veronica Visser (second) and Emily Black (third). Essay winners in the junior grades were: Hannah Hall (first), Riley Greer (second) and Mathieu Bissonnette (third). At the intermediate level, the winners were Kyle Vanbeek (first), Emma Derrick (second) and Alexis Logan Johansen (third).

ers, but even they may not be enough. Fortunately a new guardian has been chosen; Jack Frost (Chris Pine). Jack is another immortal with powers over ice, cold and wind. He’s a jokester and a trickster. He’s the one who brings snow days to children, and starts snowball fights. He’s not a guardian, but if Jack is to have any hope of defeating Pitch he’ll have to discover the hero he was always meant to be. Imagine if Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost were part of The Avengers, and you’ll have a pretty good idea what Rise of the Guardians is like. It’s a fantastic adventure of good versus evil in which a group of immortals with amazing powers battle a terrifying evil. There’s a holiday theme, but it’s basically a superhero film. It’s an imaginative story that doesn’t shy away from being a little dark in places. That dark undertone really heightened the excitement and intensity of the film. There are some powerful moments, which combined with the stunning animation, makes Rise of the Guardians a must-see film. Alec Baldwin is the voice of the larger than life, sword wielding, tattooed, Russian warrior that is Santa Claus. It’s a great character and Baldwin is awesome. The Easter Bunny, with his magic boomerangs, is nature’s fierce defender. There’s no one better to voice the sixfoot Australian bunny than Hugh Jackman. The Tooth Fairy is part human and part hummingbird and all fairy. She’s full of energy, and Isla Fisher really helps bring her to life. Though he doesn’t have a voice I should also mention the Sandman. He appears as a kind-hearted purveyor of dreams who communicates through his sand creations, but when the fight is on, well let’s just say you don’t want to mess with the Sandman. As villains go the Boogeyman is as classic as they get. He’s everything we fear about the dark. Like all true megalomaniacs intent on taking over the world, Jude Law steals the show. Jack struggles with who he is, but deep down he’s a born hero. Chris Pine is perfect as the immortal trickster of ice and snow. Rise of the Guardians may be a superhero/holiday adventure, but mostly it’s just good fun. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Spiced pork tenderloin with ginger strawberry sauce tasty and sweet ents recommended by Health Canada to build and maintain a healthy body, including six essential vitamins, four important minerals, protein and energy.

Barra MacNeils return to BAC Dec. 12 By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Events - Fans of the Barra MacNeils will remember their last tour - two years ago. When weather caused a bit of a delay for fans to take in the concert, and for the performers to hit the stage. After a memorable, albeit late performance last time, ‘The Barra MacNeils An East Coast Christmas’ will be returning to the Brockville Arts Centre Dec. 12, 8 p.m. Their previous tour stop was affected after a “huge snow storm” hit the province following the Barra MacNeils’ show in Sarnia, recalls Stewart MacNeil. The highway ended up getting shut down and they ended up stranded. Once the weather calmed down they were able to get back on their way, however they needed to get to the Centrepointe Theatre in Ottawa. After that show was over they rushed into Brockville. What would normally be a three-hour set up had to be completed in just one hour. The group took the stage at 9:15 that night. So just a little over a day late, but their loyalty to their just as loyal fans was and is very strong. Hitting the Brockville stage meant they had to drive through the night afterward in order to reach their next destination - Fredericton, New

of audience goers, coming to their shows is a tradition. This year for the six MacNeil siblings the tour also marks quite a tradition for them - it is their 25th anniversary tour together.

The siblings – Lucy, Ryan, Boyd, Stewart, Kyle and Sheumas – combine on a vast array of instruments which includes accordion, guitar, piano, fiddle, bodhran, mandolin, banjo, Celtic harp, tin

whistles, bouzouki, flute, uilleann pipes, joined by Jamie Gatti on bass. According to a press release, “The Barra MacNeils - An East Coast Christmas is a musical potpourri of tradi-

tional MacNeil family favourites gleaned from Christmas ceilidhs, midnight masses and the general festive frolic that accompanies each holiday season. With their captivating vocals, distinctive harmonies and extraordinary musicianship, The Barra MacNeils inject new life and energy into the sights and sounds of Christmas.” “We are having a lot of fun with the shows,” Stewart commented. “It really is a great show.” The concert people can expect to see in Brockville will include “some very upbeat seasonal favourites,” some foot stompin’ fun, and other elements which will make the audience feel as if they are at midnight mass, he described. Reserved seating tickets for The Barra MacNeils - An East Coast Christmas are available from the Brockville Arts Centre Box Office. The Box Office can be reached by calling 613-342-7122, 1-877-342-7122 or visit www. brockvilleartscentre.com, or drop in Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to the BAC (235 King St. W., Brockville).

produced a tale of two cities. While the Cobourg store is setting year-over-year record high monthly sales, the Brockville sales pattern has gone in the opposite direction, setting record lows each month. While online shopping is a factor, there is more evidence that people simply are not reading as much. Owner Paul Wilkinson explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peoplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; leisure time is being devoted to screen habits; including pocket screens, tablets, laptops, PCs and the 48-inch plasma in the living room. Additionally, their leisure time dollars are being spent on supporting those same screen habits leaving less money for discretionary spending. Some people are reading books on electronic devices, but some experts feel that e-books, as a percentage of total book sales, are starting to peak and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also evidence that e-book readers are finding less satisfaction and arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always finishing the titles they download.â&#x20AC;? There are many similarities between the Christian book market and that of the wider reading market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Christian publishing world roughly parallels whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in the wider book market, though we have a product that is generally more resilient. People generally turn to faith to sustain them in tough times, and the passages of life determine that tough times come to all

of us. Despite this, Brockville is a small market; though the stores that are closing are often in larger cities; we do find Christian bookstores in places like Cobourg and Haliburton are doing well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generally, the differences between Cobourg and Brockville arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that great, in fact Brockville was always our strongest location, even when we had a third store in Lindsay. But two years ago we noticed a shift taking place, and when it occurred it was quite dramatic. I believe today that the multi-store model, in an industry like ours, is not preferable to local ownership,â&#x20AC;? he explained. However the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time in Brockville has been a pleasant one for the owner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have greatly enjoyed the nearly 15 years weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve helped people in Brockville, serving up a host of products from Veggie Tales to the Left Behind series to the Gaither Gospel videos to the 2011 revision of the NIV Bible. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been there to provide resources to people at various points of need, to encourage people to own and read a copy of the Bible in a version they can understand, and to encourage people to connect with a local church.â&#x20AC;? A final sale will take place after Christmas, and store fixtures are also available for sale. The store is currently open Tuesdays and Thursday thru Saturday.

Angel Tree of Remembrance now on at BGH EMC News - The annual Angel Tree of Remembrance began Dec. 1 at the Garden Street site of Brockville General Hospital. Each year, this special tree offers area families served by the Brockville and District Hospice Palliative Care Services (BDHPCS) a way to honour the life and death of their loved ones at Christmas time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those who have experienced the death of a loved one are invited to place an Angel on our Tree of Remembrance located at the Garden Street Site,â&#x20AC;? says BDHPCS Be-

reavement Coordinator Sandra Thompson. Angels are free; however, those wishing to make a freewill donation to the Palliative Care Service may do so at the Garden Street Site (GSS) Business office or the Foundation office at the Charles Street Site (CSS) between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays. Angels are available near the tree in the GSS patient lounge, located on the 1st Floor, as well as at CSS in the Foundation office. All Angels of Remembrance will hang on the GSS tree.

Memorial event honours women who lost their lives in Montreal massacre EMC Events - Where were you on Dec. 6, 1989? Many of us may not remember where we were or what we were doing on that date. Sadly, though…there are hundreds, and probably thousands of people in our country who do….who will remember that very day, every day for the rest of their lives; particularly, the students and the families of the students who were attending Ècole Polytechnique, an Engineering school of the University of Montreal. December 6 marks the anniversary of what has been called the worst single day massacre in Canadian history. Fourteen women were killed by a lone gunman walking through the halls, carrying a semi-automatic rifle. He later identified the reason for his crimes as simply that these women were feminists and they enraged him because they dared to pursue an education and training in a career traditionally held by men. Each year Leeds and Grenville hosts a memorial event on Dec. 6 to honour not only the women who lost their lives in Montreal but also for the women and children in our own communities who live

with violence in their homes or who have been victims of violence in the past. This year’s event is a celebration of women, and is being hosted at the Brockville Rowing Club on Thursday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. Sponsorship for the event has been generously provided by Procter & Gamble and in-kind support from Starbucks and Flowers Brockville. All are welcome to join us for a candle-lit vigil to commemorate the 14 women, as well as to acknowledge local victims of violence against women. Musical and dance entertainment will be provided by local artists. Attendees will be invited to take a walk down to the Women’s Memorial Statue located on Blockhouse Island for a time of reflection. Everyone is welcome to join in for this as well. This evening is a collaborative effort of the Assault, Response, and Care Centre; Leeds & Grenville Interval House; Girls Inc.; the Victim Issues Committee of Leeds and Grenville; and Victim Services of Leeds and Grenville. Submitted by Leeds and Grenville Interval House.

Blvd. in Brockville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an event I look forward to every year because it gives me a chance to connect with people from across Leeds-Grenville in a relaxed setting,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Besides, I know how busy this

time of year is for everyone, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to give people an opportunity to take a break for at least a few hours.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will feature entertainment by the Sandy Wilson Duo, some delicious food and refresh-

ments as well as a visit from Santa Claus. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open to everyone and there is no charge to attend, although Clark is urging everyone to bring along a nonperishable food item or two for the local food banks.

The Gananoque Secondary School Trojans senior AA football team advanced to the National Capital Bowl Saturday, Nov. 24 against Moira Secondary School from Belleville. The game, played at the new Beckwith Township sports complex near Carleton Place, saw the Trojans – champions of Leeds & Grenville and EOSSAA – fall 28-0. “It’s pretty impressive just to make it,” said coach Randy Ruttan. “When you consider a little school like ours with 300 will go up against a school with 900 students – it’s pretty cool.” This was the Trojans’ third trip to the Capital Bowl in the past six years.

EMC Lifestyle - Picture yourself alone in the world. Time itself has turned against you, your health is failing, your vision gone, and winter is coming on. And yet, in your old age, instead of being surrounded by a loving caring family, you find yourself turned out into the streets to manage as best you can. Joe Cocker, a buff coloured cocker spaniel who is approximately 8-9 years old and totally blind, was picked up as a stray in southeastern Ontario. Sheba’s Haven was immediately called as he was not considered to be adoptable to the public in his condition. “He had developed a growth in the mouth which I suspected could be melanoma, but was just a normal growth that happens,” says Catherine Pokrywa, proprietor of the facility. “It was removed and other than blind, he is very healthy. He did have a tooth so badly infected that it was coming through to the roof of the mouth, under the eye. You could see a black spot that would bleed sometimes under the eye. Several teeth were removed due to ill health and bad condition. But his blindness does not stop him. He wanders the whole three acres here at the rescue, and has no problems finding his way back to the door. He loves to run around in the yard and play with the other dogs. At times he will bump into a tree, but he keeps going.” As Joe is not in need of palliative care and suffers from nothing but advanced age, he is now available to a very special home. Pokrywa is hoping that some loving Santa out there will find room in the sack to give him exactly that.

Reaching out Sheba’s Haven Rescue facility is reaching out once again to the community for help during this Christmas season. A small palliative care facility for dogs located between Highway 15 and Battersea Road, this registered charity looks after about 10 dogs at a time on a three-acre lot. There is plenty of room for them to get out and play, hunt for interesting things in the grass, or just bask in the sun. They receive the best in veterinary care, special diets, and the use of holistic and other natural treatments to guarantee that their remaining time is as comfortable and rewarding as possible. “We like to keep the numbers low,” says Pokrywa. “Care at this level can be extremely costly and time consuming, and we want to give them everything we can. “At this time we actually have 12, one of whom is in foster care.” PetValu has heard about the work at Sheba’s Haven, and is offering their help through their annual Christmas Photo Day. To participate, just drop by PetValu at 711 King St. E. in Gananoque between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Dec. 15 and have your picture taken with Santa Claus. You don’t need

Murray’s ‘trick’ leads Blackhawks to win “It was a hard fought game, a real battle out there all night. We finally responded to their aggressiveness by giving it right by to them,” said ‘The Velvet Fog’ Rob Carter who had experienced getting sand kicked in his face on the beach in his younger days. “Their goalie held them in tonight for sure. We played well,” added Jeff ‘Youngblood’ June about Pirates’ goaltender Shane François’ performance. The Pirates and the Hawks each tickled the twine three times in the first period before the home team opened it up a little in the second. The Hawks added three more in the second while the Pirates found the back of the net only once. The Hawks took that slim 6-4 lead into the third period. They added to that lead when Murray scored his third of the night to put the Hawks in total control of this game. Hold on though, the eye patch gang from Cardinal didn’t abandon ship, they

stayed the course and drew to within one goal. That made Morrow’s late goal a big one as the Hawks went up by two. In the end when all the smoke settled, or the fog for that matter, that was the winning goal. Besides Murray’s three goals and Morrow’s game winner, the Hawks got contributions from Carter and ‘The Rookie’ Jordy Whiteland. Call-ups Cory Maisoneuve and his buddy Doug Utting also scored for the Hawks. “Trevor played amazing tonight and was very dominant out there. He has got to shoot the puck more, he has a rocket. If he shoots more, he’ll score more,” noted the team’s leading scorer Carter about his teammate’s big night. The Blackhawks head to Spencerville tonight (Wednesday) to take on the Bull Dogs who have recently added more depth to their line up. The boys will get a week off before heading north to Kemptville for a tilt with the veteran-laden Classics.

EMC Sports - The Island City Blackhawks have been waiting for the time when Trevor ‘Not so Slim’ Murray would finally play outside his brother, Nate’s, rather large shadow. Well last Saturday night was that game, Murray lit the lamp three times to lead the Blackhawks to a long awaited victory. The Island City boys upended the re-tooled and younger Seaway Pirates 8-7. The win marked only the Blackhawks’ second in their last 10 games. “We knew as a group we were playing well enough to win. Tonight was a good example of that. Sure they scored a goal with only a couple of seconds left in the game, but we were up by two. Thank god for that,” Blackhawk management stated after the game. ‘The Champ’ Wayne Morrow scored with just over two minutes left in the game for that all-important insurance goal at the time. As it turned out it was a good thing.
