RANDOM ACT OF PUMPKINS

The people of Perth and Smiths Falls have put their trust in their trustees. Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) Ward 2 trustee Bill MacPherson (Town of Perth, Township of Durmmond/North Elmsley, Tay Valley Township, Beckwith, Montague) was re-elected with more than 55 per cent of the vote (3,743 votes) in a two-man race over Stephen Day (3,048 votes). UCDSB Trustee Susan Richards (Merrickville/ Welford, Rideau Lakes, Smiths Falls and Westport) was acclaimed and did not have battle for her position as trustee. “I like to view it as a validation of the last 10 years,” MacPherson said. “It was nice to have that comfortable margin (695 votes). In a two-way race you shoot for 51 per cent.” MacPherson took the majority of the votes in the Township of Drummond/North Elmsley (468-360), Lanark Highlands (1,699-939) and Montague (681370), while Day took won the voting race in Perth (775-438) and Tay Valley Township (604-457). During the campaign MacPherson said he had several bumps in the road, including his son breaking his arm the night of an all-candidates’ debate, and a car accident. “It was a bit of a rollercoaster… I work full time and I have my job commitments, I have my family commitments and I was still working as a trustee, so it’s a bit balancing act. But it’s not a journey I haven’t taken before.” MacPherson first entered the political world in 1974, when he became the youngest councillor in Lanark County at 26 years of age. He was a councillor in the Township of Drummond/North Elmsley for 16 years. See ‘Majority of voters’, Pg. 3

The people of Perth have spoken. They have called for the leadership of Jim Graff and Jim Boldt. The two newest councillors finished first and third in the municipal election held Oct. 25. Graff ended up with the largest number of votes for any council candidate with 1,280 votes, while Boldt finished third with 1,135 votes. Graff and Boldt will begin their four-year terms as councillors on Dec. 1. “I feel very humbled and appreciate that people are willing to give me a chance to make some positive contributions to our beautiful town,” Graff said. This was Graff ’s first time running for council. He said that he tried to “cover all the bases” during his campaign, including putting up lawn signs and going door-to-door listening to the concerns of Perth residents. “I have my own ideas where I would like to contribute and there are other areas where people are concerned as well,” Graff said. “Sometimes people don’t want candidates knocking on their door during elections, but we had a great response from people. It was a great learning experience.” Boldt said that the results from the election were evidence that Perth residents wanted a change. “Both Jim Graff and I garnered

after the public funds and spend them as efficiently as we can,” he said. “We need an economic development officer and economic growth to get a hold of the crazy rising taxes.” Graff said that his primary interest is also lowering taxes for Perth residents, and he said

a good number of the votes,” he said. “It’s clear with the two longest incumbents defeated that there’s a message (people want change).” Long-time councillors Bill White and Eric Devlin finished with 790 and 738 votes respectively. “I’m not disappointed, can’t be at my age (89 years old),” Devlin said. Devlin’s advice to the new councillors is for them to remember that the council is made up of a team, not individuals. “They’re only one of seven people,” Devlin said. “If they have a project that they want to get and don’t, they have to accept the decision.” Graff said that he will have a very steep learning curve when his council sessions begin, and that working with his fellow councillors will be essential. “I think we all want the same thing, we just have some different ideas on how to get there,” he said. “When you believe strongly in something you have to stick to your guns, but we all only have one vote…you need four votes to pass a motion so I think everybody on council will want to work together to make things better.” Boldt said that the first thing he wants to do is get his feet wet and understand what the town is currently committed to, as far as expenditures for the coming year. “It’s our mandate to look

Perth Chamber recognizes long-time volunteer BY ANDREW SNOOK andrew.snook@perthcourier.com Frank Roy volunteered a countless number of hours over two decades of helping others in the Perth area. On Oct. 28, Roy was honoured by the Perth and District Chamber of Commerce and awarded the Perth Medal. “I’m overwhelmed,” Roy said. “When I look around the community and see how much other people do, it’s (being awarded the Perth Medal) certainly something to make you feel warm.” After retiring to Perth in 1990, Roy volunteered his time with several organizations in the area including 18 years as secretary for the Tay Valley Ski Club and nine years on the Perth and District Library Board. He has also volunteered with the Lanark County Stewardship Council, Rideau Valley Field Naturalists and currently sits on the board for Inga-Va. The dinner and presentation took place at Code’s Mill on the Park. The highlights from the dinner included the Perth Chamber’s annual award ceremony and a presentation on cycling by keynote speaker Hans Moor,

president of Ottawa Citizens for Safe Cycling and economic and commercial affairs officer for the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The LLBHA Builder Membership Achievement Award was awarded to Code’s Construction. The company has been working in the Perth area for 18 years. “I wasn’t expecting that,” said Darwin Code, president of Code’s Construction. “It was a nice surprise for sure.” The Business Achievement Award was presented to the Lake 88.1 radio station. The three-yearold radio station was praised for its service to the community. The award was accepted by owners Brian Perkin and Norm Wright. “We were absolutely thrilled to get the nod from the chamber and get the recognition looking at who were nominated with,” Perkin said. “It was great.” During the award presentation, Perkin and Wright asked that their employees in the audience stand up and be recognized for their hard work and dedication. “It’s great that they get the recognition as well,” Perkin said. “Without their support you just can’t do it.” (Above) Deputy Mayor John Gemmill congratulates Frank Roy on being awarded the Perth Medal for his years of volunteer work at the Perth and District Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner, held on Oct. 28 at Code’s Mill Restaurant.

Up close and personal with Pierre Trudeau CATHY JAMES Pierre Trudeau’s charismatic life still has some untold stories. Since the 1960s, the former Canadian prime minister brought passion to the political stage, resulting in Trudeaumania, and ultimately, curiosity about the man behind the red rose. Brooke Johnson unveils another layer of Trudeau’s personal life in her one-person play, Trudeau Stories. Presented by the Perth Performing Arts Committee at

the Mason Theatre at the Perth and District Collegiate Institute on Thursday, Oct. 28, Johnson shares her personal memoir, depicting the friendship she formed with the leader who once pirouetted behind the Queen of England. Written and directed by Johnson, she unravels her story through memories, journal entries and correspondence with only a rug, chair and small memory box as stage props. She kept the audience tuned in for the

70-minute performance. In 1985, while a student at the National Theatre School in Montreal, she first met Trudeau at a gala where he asked her to dance. Though it had been a year and a half since he’d stepped down as prime minister, Trudeau retained Canadian celebrity status, making Johnson blush as he approached her that evening. Wearing shoes three sizes too big, Johnson describes her frustration with stuffing toilet paper into the shoes and having to dance with the former prime minister. Regardless that there was 40 years between them, the pair became friends, sharing a love for the outdoors and poetry. She often wrote him letters and at times, he reciprocated, penning a note in response. Johnson read some of these exchanges to the audience, demonstrating how they connected as self-described loners. Johnson performed as though she was still in her 20s, reliving her words and actions with bouts of insecurities and innocence, as any young woman would, especially in the presence of a successful, older man. The audience sees that Johnson is trying to learn who she is, while at the same time, forming this unforeseen friendship. Johnson’s scene descriptions – whether at the gala, at his house or at a pub meeting up together for the first time – draws the audience into the story, allowing them to feel that they, too, had these same moments Johnson once experienced with Trudeau. Trudeau Stories is a compelling play, encompassing hu-

Laurier in Love author at Factory Grind on Nov. 10 BY ANDREW SNOOK andrew.snook@perthcourier.com Sir Wilfrid Laurier is one of the most recognizable prime ministers in Canada’s history. Roy MacSkimming’s latest novel, Laurier in Love, offers readers a unique look inside Laurier’s personal life, as he juggles a love triangle and unifying a divided nation. MacSkimming has been writing and publishing books since 1964. His best-selling book of all-time is Gordie: A Hockey Legend, a biography on Gordie Howe. He also worked as a literary columnist and publishing reporter at The Toronto Star, trade editor with a Toronto book publisher and started New Press in 1969, alongside James Bacque and Dave Godfrey. The Burgesswood resident said that he decided to write a book on Laurier’s personal life after writing his novel Macdonald, on the life of Sir John. A. Macdonald. “He (Laurier) had an equally interesting private life and deserved a novel to himself,” he said. “Laurier in Love focuses on his love life, which is rather complicated.” MacSkimming’s novel follows Laurier’s complicated love life, as his wife Zoe, and lover Emilie Lavergne, battle for his affection. “Women particularly seem drawn to it because the story is really told by the two women, from Zoe’s point of view and

from Emilie’s point of view,” MacSkimming said. “The novel mainly concerned with his private relationships.” The novel follows the highs and lows of Laurier’s lovers as he rises to fame on the world stage after attending Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee and

Lanark Highlands elects The lopsided victory for MacPherson in Lanark Highlands (760-vote difference) secured MacPherson’s victory. MacPherson said that one of his goals this term is to set up an early French immersion program at Maple Grove Elementary School in the village of Lanark. “I see myself in a position where I can see myself bringing that forward,” he said. “It’s not like it can’t be done. I think it would be a huge boost to the community up there, maybe more kids would take it, maybe not.” MacPherson said that he is also interested in “cementing relationships” with the surrounding community on the construction of the new Perth and District Collegiate Institute (PDCI). “We’re not going to be able to do it right without the support of the community,” he said. “There are some pretty important features in the old PDCI that we need to replicate.”

Graff said. “It’s not money that leaves the town, it stays in the town.” Graff spent 15 years working in the trucking industry and also ran his own business performing environmental assessments before retiring last winter. Boldt currently works as a sales and operations manager for Top Brass Movers and Storage in Carleton Place. Both Boldt and Graff stressed the importance of attracting small businesses to Perth. “Do I think we can get another 3M or Hershey-like company? I think not,” Boldt said. “But I think there’s lots of opportunity to get small businesses that will employ 10 or 15 people…I think that’s the way of the future.” Graff said that the quality of life in Perth will be a key

factor for attracting small businesses. “We’ve got a great group of volunteers in this town that contribute an awful lot,” he said. “I think that’s a drawing card (quality of life) for new businesses, especially small businesses. Perth is a pretty nice place to raise your kids.” Graff said that he will work hard over this term to support the confidence that people have placed in him. Boldt said that council will be his first priority, but he will continue in his role as long-time announcer for the Perth Jr. B Blue Wings. “This my 13th year,” he said. “Obviously the council comes first, but I get a big charge out that, it’s my way of giving back to the community.”

Spoken word in the nation’s capital KATIE MULLIGAN katie.mulligan@metroland.com Powerful words have been coming out of Lanark County since poetry began to lift off a few years ago. The Lanark Live Poets Society,

also known as Lanark LiPS, headed downtown Ottawa last week to compete in the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word, which ran from Oct. 12 to 16. The event, which was hosted in a number of downtown Ottawa venues, featured 18 teams from

across Canada, with two from Ottawa and LiPS from Lanark County. Emily Kwissa, Sarah Bingham , Inez Dekker and Britt PrudenFaraday hail from Carleton Place while team alternate Satinka Schilling is from Tay Valley. Capital Slam, one of Ottawa’s two teams, took the top spot for the second year in a row. “It was amazing,” said Almonte poet Danielle K. L. Grégoire. “They really deserved it.” This is the first time the festival has returned to Ottawa after it was first created in 2004. Grégoire said the pressure was on the hometown teams, particularly Capital Slam, because they won at the 2009 championship. “They really brought it,” she said. While LiPS did not make it past the preliminary rounds, Grégoire said, as usual, the team showed up and gave a strong performance. “They were amazing,” she said. “They did 14 pieces the second night.” The team worked countless

hours throughout the summer to prepare for this year’s festival. “They didn’t make it to the finals but they should have in my opinion,” said Grégoire. Grégoire, who was also the daytime program director at this year’s festival, became heavily involved in the poetry scene in Ottawa when she first moved to the nation’s capital. Since moving to Almonte, she remains involved in Ottawa, but also spends time working with poets and poets-intraining of all ages. On Wednesday, Oct. 13, Grégoire had the chance to bring students from R. Tait McKenzie School in Almonte to the introduction to writing poetry workshop for youth, hosted by Ian Keteku. Alex Edwards and Sarah Milligan earned the chance to go to the workshop. They were joined by 10-year-old Dora Tamas. Grégoire said Dora had a great piece about people telling her to write a poem. It began with her teacher, mother, cat, dog and others telling her to write a poem. After all of the encouragement,

she opened her Jones Soda. On the inside of the drink’s cap, it said “write a poem.” The young performer even had the cap with her. “It was phenomenal,” said Grégoire. “The kids had a good time there.” Grégoire also hosted a workshop along with fellow poet and teacher Lara Bozabalian of Toronto. The pair focused on teaching others to bring poetry slams and workshops into schools.

SLAMS The first Monday of each month will feature a poetry slam in Carleton Place at CP Cinemas. Slams will also be planned in Almonte and Perth throughout the next year, but they will be consistently held in Carleton Place in the meantime. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the slams will start at 7 p.m. “If other communities want to have slams, we can come out, hold workshops and hold a slam,” said Grégoire.

We are beginning our Operation Christmas Child campaign for 2010. Canadian kids, school groups, businesses, churches and civic organizations are needed now to help the world’s largest Christmas project reach out to millions of children that are victims of war, poverty, disease and natural disasters. Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way for Canadians to lovingly pack a shoe box filled with personal gifts for a suffering child, to show disadvantaged children around the world that someone still cares for them. In the past decade, war has claimed the lives of more than

two million children, six million children have been permanently disabled or seriously injured, 20 million have been forced to flee their homes, one million have been orphaned or separated from their families and 10 million have been traumatized by war. Conflicts worldwide involve over 300,000 child soldiers under the age of 18 and more than 8,000 children are killed or maimed by landmines every year. Each day, 5,000 children die needlessly from waterborne illnesses. Last year, 640,569 shoe boxes were sent from Canada to more than 16 countries. Ontario contributed 253,072, with 1,262 coming from Perth and the surrounding area.

Gift-filled shoe boxes transcend all barriers — linguistic, cultural, geographical, and political — to give hurting children joy and hope. This year, shoe box gifts will be collected in 13 countries: Canada, Australia, Austria, Germany, Finland, Ireland, The Netherlands, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, New Zealand, Spain and Hong Kong. While November may be early to start thinking about Christmas, remember that the boxes need to be filled and at the drop-off centre by Monday, Nov. 15 in order for them to reach the children in time for Christmas. For information, call Vivian Buchanan at 613-267-2874.

Free dental care available for local kids

A new no-cost dental program is now available in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark, which will help ensure that eligible kids can establish and maintain good oral health. Accessing dental care for children can be a challenge for some Ontario families, particularly for those families without dental benefit coverage. The new Healthy Smiles Ontario program will ensure that kids can have regular visits with a dentist or dental hygienist. “Every child deserves a healthy smile,” stated Dr. Paula Stewart, medical officer of health for the health unit. “This preventive dental program will provide much needed services to those families who have previously had nowhere to turn. We are thrilled to be part of it.” This program is anticipated to benefit more than 2,000 kids in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark counties. Oral health diseases are more prevalent among people with limited or no access to dental services, and children are the most vulnerable. By making regular trips to a dentist or dental hygienist, kids will be able to prevent cavities and other dental problems that can contribute to diseases later in life. The program will give kids access to services like check-ups, cleaning, fillings, x-rays, scaling and more. Administered by the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, the program will provide preventive dental care at no cost to kids who: • Are 17 years of age and under. • Are members of a household with an adjusted family net income of $20,000 per year or less. • Don’t have access to any form of dental coverage. The health unit is partnering with local dentists and dental hygienist, the North Lanark Community Health Centre, Country Road Community Health Centre, Smiths Falls Community Health Centre and other groups to ensure that clients receive the best care possible under this new program. The Healthy Smiles Ontario program is part of the province’s Poverty Reduction Strategy to reduce the number of children living in poverty by 25 per cent over five years, and supports the fiveyear Open Ontario Plan to provide more access to health care services.

LETTERS

A new building is exactly what food bank needs Dear Editor: It came to my attention recently that some residents of our community have questioned the decision of the board of the Perth & District Food Bank to purchase a building that will house its operations when the current lease expires in April 2011. The suggestion is that we should be buying food, not a building. I want the community to know that buying nourishing food for our clients is our first priority. Like all food banks, we do need a home for our services. Purchasing a building was a business decision made in the long term best interests of the Food Bank. Our current rent is high, and it is one of the largest expenses in our operating budget. By purchasing a property the annual occupancy costs will be reduced very significantly; in fact savings will amount to approximately 65% of current costs. Furthermore, The Food Bank will have security of tenure and it will allow it to expand the services it currently provides. There is no federal or provincial support for food banks. We rely primarily on community support. The Food Bank fundraises on its own through the Harvest Campaign and we are fortunate that the community supports us in other ways as well. In the past few years we have received some unusually large donations such as the Polar Bear Plunge, an unsolicited grant from the County, and some significant individual dona-

tions. This meant that we had a budget surplus available to invest in a down payment for the new building. I want to emphasize that the decision to go forward with the purchase was endorsed unanimously by the board and by its members at a special meeting held for that purpose. There was not one objection. The Food Bank is a registered charity, and our annual financial statements are prepared by a chartered accountant and are available on line at the Canada Revenue Agency website or upon request by calling the Food Bank at 613-267-6428. I sincerely hope that this letter encourages the generous people of Perth and District to contribute to this year’s Harvest Campaign currently underway. Let me also say that we could not do what we do without your financial support, the many volunteer hours of so many people in this community, and the contributions from schools, churches, service clubs, and local businesses throughout the year. Thank you, and continue helping. If you have any questions, please email the Food Bank at perthfoodbank@superaj.com or call us at 613-267-6428 or visit our website at www.perthfoodbank.com Ted Miller Chair, Perth & District Food Bank

You’re looking at a poster girl

am the poster girl for worklife balance. Oh, yeah. Didn’ t you know? It’s the same sort of deal as that really ugly guy (I think it was a guy – I can’t be sure) who was on the poster for smoking when I was in high school. The poster was in study hall, which gave us “minor niners” lots of time to stare at it during spares. It featured possibly the world’s ugliest person – scary hair, sunken eyes, wrinkles – with a cigarette dangling from his lips. The text on the poster read: “Smoking is so glamorous.” (That poster taught us about irony, too.) Well, here it is 2010 and I don’t smoke. Yay! The poster worked! Given the obvious success of that poster, perhaps I should express my gratitude by making it my life’s work to help other folks to avoid my work-life balance plight. I should pose for a poster to convince people they don’t want to end up like me. So let’s imagine it. Well, there I’d be – with my typically scary hair, sunken eyes (bloodshot and with dark circles, too), wrinkled brow/worry frown and with a chewed pen dangling from my lips. And, possibly, there would be a mouse cord around my neck and a sheath of papers trailing behind me. The text on the poster would read, “Working all the time is so glamorous.” Possibly in the background of this poster you would see two little blurs to represent my kids and their fleeting childhoods. The thing is, I like to be busy. In fact, I sometimes don’t know what to do with myself if I’m not busy.

Stephanie

GRAY Past Deadline That’s probably not such a good thing, though, and there are definitely limits to busyness. In my world that’s when I run into those work-life balance issues – when I don’t know how to turn off the work part and enjoy the life part. I know lots of people who are so busy it makes my head spin. They have two or three jobs that carry a lot of responsibility, not to mention having spouses and children and lives beyond that. Sometimes those people even go out and have fun! I suspect they either a) only sleep once a week or b) are robots. Maybe the whole thing comes down to the definition of busy. There is actually a fairly long list of definitions for this word in the dictionary – enough to keep one occupied for a good long time, or at least for many, many seconds. First off, it is defined as being “occupied in work etc. with the attention concentrated.” Makes

sense. I’m curious to know what the “etc.” is, though. Busy can also be defined as “full of activity,” “having heavy traffic” and “excess of detail.” Then we get into “employed continuously; unresting,” which seems to hit the nail on the head for me. I’ve been feeling a tad unrested lately. Okay. I know that I’m taking that last definition just a little too literally. “Employed” doesn’t necessarily mean “paid to do work,” it can just mean, well, busy doing something (“occupied in work, etc. with the attention concentrated,” perhaps?). And “unresting” doesn’t necessarily mean you never get any sleep – it could just refer to doing anything that isn’t sleeping. So, I guess this means I could be busy, say, reading a book. Or going for a run (yeah, ’cause that’s been going really well) or having a bubble bath or playing with the children or going out with friends or eating brownies. Whoa. I could be busy having fun! So it would seem the possibilities for being busy are endless and they don’t have to be exhausting. (We’ll just ignore the whole “who has time for fun” aspect of this issue for the moment so we don’t spoil the fantasy.) You know, with that kind of busy, I truly should strive to be the poster girl for work-life balance. I might even like it. I could feed my need to be occupied without having to be a robot. So the picture on the poster would morph into me with great hair, sparkly eyes, wrinkle-free skin – with a brownie hanging from my mouth. Yeah, I don’t believe it either. Except maybe the brownie part.

The Town of Perth, in partnership with the Perth & District Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Heritage Perth Business Improvement Area, will purchase a Through-Glass Touch Screen Unit that will be located in the downtown core for tourists and local residents to find out about dining, shopping, local festivals, events and other activities happening in Perth and district. The unit will feature the Chamber of Commerce website and will provide information to visitors and local residents. The unit is funded by a grant received from Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation in conjunction with the Eastern Ontario Development Program. The partners are working together to make sure our town remains competitive in the 21st century. This project will be up and running by the end of 2010 so keep your eyes wide open to see what’s new in Perth.

Your Water Bill is Changing

In the first few months of 2011, the Town will implement some important changes in how it bills residential water users. Commercial, industrial and institutional meters will continue to be read and billed monthly; however there will be an adjustment bill in order to reduce the lag time between the reading date and billing date. These changes are designed to make the billing system easier to understand and more effective for water users. Under the new system, all residential water users will have their meters read every second month and billed based on actual water consumption. This will reduce the number of water billings from the current 12 per year to 6 per year and also eliminate the inconsistencies associated with billings based on estimated readings. Finally, the new system will reduce the billing lag of between 5-6 weeks on the consumption portion of the bill and one month on the service delivery portion of the bill. Under the new system, the billing lag will be substantially reduced. The first residential bill after the implementation of the new system will include a one-time only adjustment which will show in the water consumption portion of the bill. The adjustment amount will depend on when the last actual reading took place. This adjustment is a reconciliation of costs already incurred by the user (but not yet billed) and not an additional or new cost. Benefits of the new system: all bills will be actual reads; more timely information to users and a reduction in the number of bills from 12 to six per year. Questions about the new system should be directed to Lang Britchford, A/Director of Corporate Services at 613-267-3311 Extension 2223.

LOOKING BACK 25 years ago

Something went bump in the night!

S

omething went bump in the night last Wednesday, and nobody in the area seems to know exactly what it was. Residents throughout Perth and as far away as Mountain Grove, Lanark and Westport reported hearing a noise similar to an explosion and which has also been described as a thump or muffled bang. The incident took place about 10:30 p.m., and some residents reported seeing a bright light following the “explosion.” “There was definitely a light that seemed to travel upwards,” stated one Perth resident. Over the last several days, the Courier has contacted a number of individuals, police forces and government agencies trying to discover the source of this phenomenon, but no one can explain this strange occurrence.

Lt. Michael Considine of National Defence Headquarters stated there was no aircraft activity in this area that might constitute a sonic boom or similar noise last Wednesday night. The Perth Police and the Perth OPP were also contacted, and although several members of the staff had heard about the strange noise, they had no idea what caused the so-called explosion. Environment Canada, National Research Council and the government weather office were also contacted and, again, no one had any answers. Doug Norman, of Bennett Lake, also heard the noise, and he described it as similar to a dynamite explosion. “The ‘explosion’ rocked the house, but the vibrations were not like an earthquake,” he said.

The incident remains a mystery, but hopefully in the not-toodistant future, the resident of Lanark County might discover what went bump in the night last Wednesday.

The plant is initially expected to create 14 new jobs and more than 50 indirect jobs. Steep Rock president Tim Wood said the plant could expand in the future, creating more jobs.

New $13 million plant for Steep Rock

Public packs council chambers

Federal, provincial and municipal officials took part in a plaqueunveiling ceremony at Steep Rock Calcite last week to mark construction of a new $13 million plant. Officials gathered at the Bathurst Township site on Thursday, where Steep Rock Resources and Combustion Engineering-Superheater will embark on a joint venture project. Development of the plant actually started in August and should be completed by the fall of 1986.

One of the largest delegations in the recent history of Perth — about 100 people — jammed the town council chamber last week to protest the proposed widening of Drummond Street. The town wants to widen the street four feet, from 24 feet to 28 feet, in order to bring the road up to minimum provincial standards. The town has offered to consider removing commercial truck traffic from the street if the residents go along with the widening. With the proposed widening of four feet, said Coun. John McLenaghan, trees along the street would not be touched. “It’s our bottom line,” said McLenaghan about the proposed width increase. “We have no room to move, it’s simply not in the cards.” Midway through his speech to the large crowd, McLenaghan attacked the local press and blamed a perceived “communications problem” between council and the public on the media. The emotionally charged meeting began with the chairman of the Drummond Street Committee, Steve Cross, saying the group is “vehemently opposed” to the proposed widening. Cross said the street residents wanted council to pass a motion to maintain the existing street width, action on a bypass route around the town, a ban on commercial traffic over one tonne on the street and consider more stop signs on Drummond Street. Cross also said the group was “non-negotiable” on the question of widening the street. “I take exception to Mr. Cross’ approach,” commented McLenaghan, and said the works committee had dealt with the Drummond committee fairly and reasonably at a prior meeting. “Events to this point of time have been blown way out of proportion,” said McLenaghan, who added that a four-foot widening of the street would improve the

Pranksters knock down signs

P

erth Police report that 65 stop signs were knocked down during Halloween night throughout the town, but no extensive damage was caused, with the exception of a car fire about 10:30 p.m. A car, which had been parked on Gore Street near the D’Arcy Street intersection for the past week with flat tires, provided some excitement when three youths threw some dry leaves onto the front seat and then set them on fire. Citizens in the neighbourhood noticed the blaze and turned in an alarm to Bob Sargeant, and Fire Chief George Graham and Deputy Chief Eric Nixon were dispatched to the scene and extinguished the blaze with a fire extinguisher.

Parade and treats enjoyed The youngsters were well taken care of by the Lions club. A parade got underway at the IGA Wilson Street store about seven o’clock and, headed by the Perth Canadian Legion Sea Scout Trumpet Band, marched to the rink, where treats were handed out to the children. Every conceivable costume that could be gathered up was worn by the children. Over 200 were in attendance at the James’ Recreation Centre, where a panel of judges had a difficult time in choosing the prize winners.

Reeve claims South Elmsley facing cattle rustlers South Elmsley, a township plagued by dogs killing a large number of sheep last summer, is now allegedly faced with the problem of cattle rustlers, according to Reeve Ed Purcell. Mr. Purcell said he lost a one-

year-old Holstein calf to rustlers Friday night. Mr. Purcell said the calf had been driven out of his pasture and then butchered on a nearby concession road. The reeve claimed cattle had been rustled in the area last year and warned district farmers to be on the lookout.

street “for the use of all taxpayers.” McLenaghan noted that “confrontation is going to accomplish absolutely nothing.” A fourfoot widening would be a “prudent width” for Drummond Street, he added. Cross described the works committee as “dug in” on the question of width and said maintaining Drummond Street is “integral to the heritage aspects of the town.” He added that the Drummond Street Committee has no problem with the town plan to install new services under Drummond Street. The municipality, in a two-phase program, plans to install new sewers, and the PUC will install new watermains from North Street to Daines Place.

TO THE ELECTORS OF THE TOWN OF PERTH You are all entitled to congratulations for your participation in the recent election for those persons whom you wished to be your town council representatives for the next four years. As one of the “also rans,” may I offer my sincere thanks to those persons who did consider me as a candidate. During my time on council, I have always endeavoured to put forth my best efforts on behalf of the complete community, with common sense, consideration and logic in all the discussions that are part and parcel of the duties of a council member, to ensure that good and reasonable decisions are made. No matter what the result of the election has been – the sun has always shone for me, and will continue to do so, and it is not the end of the world for my participation in the events of the town. I can look back on some 68 years of service to Canada (through the military), to Ontario (through the courts), and to the town (through municipal tenure) with the gratification that I participated to some degree in the endeavour to adhere to a motto of my military regiment, namely “Pro Patria” (for the Country) and also in some small way helped to achieve the town motto “Aged to Perfection.” Sincerely, Eric H. Devlin 423531

The Incident At Shakey Acres house concert series will end its 2010 season with a flourish, hosting Jory Nash on Saturday, Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. Nash is one of Canada’s best and most prolific young singersongwriters, with six critically acclaimed albums in the past 12 years. Danny Sullivan, whose family hosts the house concert series in their home near Bennett Lake, said that they first came across Nash at a tribute concert to Gordon Lightfoot in Ottawa. “There were a lot of big names on the bill that night, but the performer who really stood out for us was Jory Nash,” Sullivan said. It turned out that Nash was one of the organizers of “The Way We Feel” tribute, which has since become an annual event. The last two years, Lightfoot himself has turned up to the show and picked up a guitar to sing one or two of his songs. This is only a small accomplishment on Nash’s resumé. Nash’s work is a blend of influences, earning comparisons to Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie and others, with elements of folk, jazz, blues, soul and pop, creating an original stew of sound. His songs have a unique charm of their own, but Nash doesn’t hesitate to pay tribute to his heroes, recording covers of songs from the likes of Woody Guthrie and Nat King Cole. His version of Smokey Robinson’s “Tracks of My Tears” was named by Stuart McLean of CBC Radio’s Vinyl Café as one of the best cover songs of all time. Nash’s 2009 release, New Blue Day, was awarded Album of the Year by Penguin Eggs (Canada’s

PCC tackles Sweeney Todd

The Perth Community Choir’s fall production for 2010 is a step into new territory for the 29-yearold community theatre. It’s also stepping back into the group’s early history. Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, one of the most-honoured musicals in Broadway history, is an extreme challenge for any group, both musically and dramatically. Winner of nine Tony awards, including Best Musical of 1979 and Best Revival of a Musical in 2006, the “musical thriller” has achieved legendary status both for the complexity of Stephen Sondheim’s musical score and lyrics and for the dramatic depth of its beautifully dark “Grand Guignol” story. It’s the tale of Sweeney Todd, a barber wrongfully convicted and transported to Australia in the 1800s who returns to London to seek revenge on the wrongdoers, and of Mrs. Lovett, the happily amoral pie-shop owner who provides him with a unique way of achieving it. Turned into a movie by director Tim Burton a few years back, the stage show has proven itself, time after time, to be a true masterpiece of American musical theatre. The show is constantly surprising, genuinely comic and deeply dramatic, and always filled with some of the most remarkable music ever written for the stage. Although composer/lyricist Sond-heim won a Pulitzer Prize a few years later for Sunday in the Park with George, it is generally recognized that Sweeney Todd is his true master work, with the show in constant revival, on professional and community stages, both as a piece of musical theatre and even as an opera. For the Perth Community Choir’s production, director Janice Jacklin has gone back to Sondheim’s early vision for the

show: a simply-staged, bare-bones musical that concentrates fully on the performances, the music and the drama. The 12-piece orchestra, directed by Brad Mills, will move from the pit onto the stage, with action of the show happening between, around and perhaps even on top of them! Mills, a professional organist, will conduct from the keyboard of a Wurlitzer concert organ which will occupy the pit normally filled with musicians. It’s the reunion of Jacklin and Mills that is a step back into the Perth Community Choir’s early days. In 1980, Mills brought a Queen’s University production of the musical Godspell to Perth, a musical that featured Jacklin (then Janice Perry). A year later, the two were both working as teachers in the Perth region and, finding a void in the local music scene,

worked together to mount the first production by the Perth Community Choir, in the thenundeveloped auditorium at the Perth and District Collegiate Institute. Since then, the PCC has mounted a major musical each fall in the high school, helping to develop the facility to the point where it is now the best-equipped theatre in the region. Counting Godspell, Mills and Jacklin consider this fall’s production to be their 30th-anniversary show. Of course, the show makes great demands on its cast, and a strong group of performers is needed to meet those demands. The PCC’s cast of about 30 are stepping up to the challenge, working their way through the maze of counterpoint, layered vocal lines and five- and even six-part harmony of the show’s score.

The principals include PCC newcomer Stephen Morgenstern as the street waif Tobias; Janice Reid (the witch in Orion Theatre Company’s Into The Woods) as the mad beggar woman; Scott Somerville (PCC’s Guys and Dolls) as pseudo-Italian Pirelli; Ron Cosens (BarnDoor Productions’ The Chimes) as nefarious Beadle Bamford; Gary King (Orpheus Operatic Society, Ottawa Choral Society, BarnDoor Productions) as the menacing Judge Turpin; Chris Angel (BDP’s A Night In The Theatre) as earnest Anthony Hope; and Kristen Widenmaier (PCC’s Ruddigore) as the innocent Johanna. The show’s two leading roles, Mrs. Lovett and Sweeney Todd, each in about a dozen musical numbers, are challenging not only musically and dramatically, but also from the standpoint of sheer stamina.

Nicola Oddy, well known regionally as a singer but in her first major stage role in a number of years, takes on Mrs. Lovett, whose pie shop is the scene of the dark doings in the play, while David Jacklin, producing director of Perth’s BarnDoor Productions, plays Sweeney Todd, intent on revenge at any cost. Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street will run Nov. 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 and 13 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 7 at 2 p.m. at the Mason Theatre, Perth and District Collegiate Institute. Tickets are available at Tickets Please (www.ticketsplease.ca) (39 Foster St. at Jo’s Clothes), or call 613-485-6434. Tickets are $22. This show is an intense drama dealing with adult themes and is not recommended for smaller children. Submitted by the Perth Community Choir.

Proper hunting is good, practical conservation

Art

BRIGGS-JUDE Outdoors table didn’t seem to matter that much then, and in later years mattered even less. Time has taken away my Dad, and wear has made the old gun unsafe to shoot. My own gun is no longer new and I’m well into my third bird dog. A few weeks ago, I cleaned and oiled the gun for yet another hunting season. Now whenever I can get away I’ll be out trying to reap some of nature’s wild harvest. It won’t be a bushel of rabbits or a freezer full of grouse, but rather an enjoyable effort to bring home some traditional wild delicacies. For anyone who has heard even the rudiments of conservation knows you can’t stockpile wildlife. For many years now, there has been a lot of unrealistic pressure put on people who hunt, by those who were never involved in this outdoor pastime. When I was out shooting with my Dad or my companions, I never looked on myself as a murderer and I still

don’t. Too often, the public has been TV-exposed into believing all deer are Bambis, all ducks are Donalds and all bears are Gentle Bens. The cold hard facts show these creatures are made up of the same kind of flesh and bone as chickens, cattle and swine, and to me that spells food. Their very existence, too, often depends on the actions of mankind. If a swamp is drained for a factory complex or an urban spread, more wildlife are killed in a few weeks than the average hunter would shoot in a lifetime. It’s tough to convince people that when such wetlands are lost, the displaced creatures simply can’t move to the next area. It’s nice to witness the throngs of geese at this season, and to know that there are more now than when Champlain sailed up the St. Lawrence. The sportsmen find themselves forced out of some of the marshes they helped preserve against commercial development years ago. And labelling all members of the hunting fraternity as lawbreakers and vandals, because of the actions of a few, is to forget that our society is pockmarked with such people in every vocation. Remember, there are laws to handle violators in the outdoors the same as there are when you exceed the speed limit in your own vehicle. The Ministry of Natural Resources supports and promotes regulated hunting in Ontario because it’s good recreation for the individual, good sense for the economy, and good practical conservation. Remember, conser-vation is the wise use of a re-newable resource which, in a nutshell, is what wild game really is.

Now the morning dew has changed to snappy frost. The corn stands dried and yellowed in the fields, the shapes of pumpkins show among the withered leaves. Wild apples blush from heavilyladen trees or glow golden in the autumn sun. Along the forest edge and in the wood lots, the intermittent sound of dropping acorns summons the bear and deer to feast. In the limbs above, squirrels and jays take their annual share. Bees busy themselves with the last nectar from the fading flowers and mice and muskrats fill their stores with ripe seeds and swollen tubers. In short, it’s harvest time, the season when the crops are brought in to be utilized for the benefit of all concerned. As a young lad working on a farm near Vineland, autumn was an exciting and busy season. There were prune plums and pears to bring to the barn; honey to be extracted from the combs; pullets to be brought in from the range shelters; and cockerels to be killed for market. But midst all the yields of the orchard and furrow, there was another harvest. It was the crop of wild game that was hatched and raised in the woods and fields of the farm. There were pheasants and jackrabbits in the corn and stubble, grouse and cottontails in the wood lots, and ducks along the creek. You didn’t mind extra work, as long as you were out there when the season opened, with the dog in the crisp, earlymorning air, to get the results of your new gun that Dad got with his old one. Whether you came home with a full count or merely one for the

PAGE 16 - THE PERTH COURIER - November 4, 2010

Lanark County and the Second Battle of Ypres BY TIM ZANDER “When Britain is at war, Canada is at war.” Despite being spoken by Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier in 1910, these words were applicable to Canada in 1914 with Robert Borden as Prime Minister. With German violation of Belgian neutrality in August, Britain was formally at war with Germany and thus, so was Canada. Canada’s Minister of Militia, Sam Hughes, put out a call for recruits and hoped to establish a force of about 25,000 men. However, Canadians enthusiastically backed Britain in the war and Hughes recruited 32,665 men. These men who met and trained at Valcartier, northwest of Quebec City, made up the first contingent of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. Perth and the rest of Lanark County, as well as Renfrew County, were no

different from the rest of Canada, as many men eagerly enlisted in the 42nd Lanark and Renfrew Regiment. Among the Perth and area men who enlisted in the first contingent were William Wright, Clyde Scott, Will Joynt, Eric Spalding, Fred Carr, Art Brown, Roy McIntyre, George “Scotty” Cameron and Archie Sinclair. Men from Almonte, Carleton Place and Renfrew County converged on Perth as the 42nd Battalion assembled itself to embark on a trip to Valcartier by train. At Valcartier, the men were outfitted and began some training. By Oct. 2, the contingent, on ships, began to leave Gaspe Harbour. It took three hours for the 34kilometre-long line of ships to leave the narrow harbour. Once beyond the harbour, it was smooth sailing for the 12-day trip. The destination for the convoy was Southampton, but reports of German U-boats in the area forced the ships to dock at Plymouth.

Salisbury Plain was the destination of the Canadian troops. Here the men lived in tents amidst the “abnormally heavy precipitation” and they completed further training. Belgium would be the next destination for the men as they hoped to participate in the war against the Germans before it ended. In mid-February, the troops,

including the men from Lanark County, began to sail across the English Channel to France where the men boarded trains to arrive at the front. These men ended up at the Ypres Salient in Belgium. Hostilities between the British and the Germans had erupted in the ancient town of Ypres in October of 1914, which Continued on next page

In Flanders Fields by John McCrae, May 1915 In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

Men of the county were at the forefront of fighting ammunition, so he decided that it was best to evacuate most of his men from the house. Two of the men in the house were Archie Sinclair and Eric Spalding, both from Perth. Hooper ordered all but 10 of the 31 men in the house to evacuate. Spalding was one of the men who were ordered to leave. Hooper later stated that “it was too late” for these men to evacuate as the Germans were all around. The men had to go 300 yards across a hail of bullets emanating from the German guns. Eric Spalding was not seen again. Archie Sinclair had also been ordered to withdraw from the house by Hooper. He made it to the edge of woods where he provided some

to surrender but he was shot by the Germans. Hooper was taken prisoner by the Germans and because of the injuries he had received, he returned home in 1917 as part of a prisoner exchange. Clyde Scott was presumed dead, as was William Wright. The Town of Perth was to hold a memorial for the two men at St. Andrew’s Church, where Scott’s father was the reverend, but it was discovered that Scott was alive and a prisoner of war. He, like Hooper, would be returned to Canada in an exchange. As for Wright, the memorial went ahead for him but he was in fact alive and not a prisoner of war. Art Brown, who had been part of the

It was difficult to get the order to the men. The men in Doxsee’s House received it around 2:30 p.m. Lieutenant Scott, who had been supporting Doxsee’s House, received the message at 3 p.m., but Hooper was unable to get the message until 4:30 p.m. Captain Hooper, prior to receiving the order to evacuate, had already realized that the situation was grim. The house was being surrounded by the enemy and his men were low on

Hooper, a veteran of the Boer War, made it across the 300 yards to the woods and situated himself near Sinclair. Sinclair, who had been wounded in the shoulder, and Hooper, who had also been wounded, fought until they fainted from their injuries. When Hooper and Sinclair regained consciousness, Sinclair attempted

During the Second Battle of Ypres, the Canadian troops distinguished themselves and although the British did withdraw to a line nearer Ypres, the Canadians helped to prevent a major German breakthrough. At the forefront of the fighting were the men of Perth, Lanark and the rest of the county.

Continued from previous page resulted in the Allied salient into German lines. It was on April 22, 1915, a “bright, clear day” with the “tang of spring” in the air, that the Germans began the Second Battle of Ypres. At 5 p.m., a German plane flew overhead and dropped three red flares which signalled the German artillery to commence bombarding Ypres and the German Pionier regiment to open the valves on the steel cylinders that combined contained 160 tons of chlorine gas. The yellowish-green mist of the gas rolled toward the French colonial troops resulting in instantaneous coughing, vomiting, breathing difficulties and for many, an agonizing death. French colonial troops who did not succumb to the poisonous gas were unable to hold their position and quickly began a retreat. A break in the Allied line could have resulted in a major breakthrough for the Germans, but over the next couple of days they were faced with desperate resistance. A key part in the resistance was the tenacity of the Canadian soldiers coupled with their knowledge of high school chemistry. It was known that by wetting handkerchiefs with water, and placing them over the nose and mouth, that the effects of the gas could be minimized. More effective was soaking handkerchiefs in urine. The men from Lanark County played a valiant role in the prevention of the German breakthrough. Captain Hooper, of Carleton Place, led No. 15 Platoon between the town of St. Julien and Kitchener’s Woods, and captured a house from the enemy which became known as Hooper’s House. Another nearby house was captured by Lieutenant Doxsee. These two houses became advanced posts in an effort to hold the land between the town and the woods. Nearby was Perth’s Lieutenant Clyde Scott, who was leading No. 7 platoon. His platoon was attempting to link up with Doxsee’s House. While Scott’s men were digging, Hooper’s men were also digging towards the nearby Highlanders, but the Germans desired the two houses and attacked repeatedly. Hooper and his men from Lanark County distinguished themselves as they faced “a number of brisk actions...in which the bayonet

Millar rides latest wins into Toronto BY ANDREW SNOOK andrew.snook@perthcourier.com According to Chinese New Year, 2010 is the year of the tiger, but for Perth’s Jonathon Millar, it’s looking more like the year of the horse. Millar has been enjoying victories at various events including recent wins at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show in the $10,000 Gamblers Choice and the $30,000 Aviva Elite/Peel Maryborough Caledon Cup Phase II at the Canadian Show Jumping Tournament in Palgrave, Ont., where he rode Always Cullohill through the course in a time of 38.35 seconds. He also had a strong showing at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Ky., on Oct. 6, where Millar teamed up with Eric Lamaze, Yann Candele and John Pearce to take fifth place. Canada has now qualified for the 2012 Olympics in London. From Nov. 5 to 14, Millar will be

competing at the $100,000 Canadian Show Jumping Championships Presented by Greenhawk at the Royal Horse Show, part of the 88th Royal Agricultural Winter Fair at Exhibition Place in Toronto. “I’m looking forward to the Royal Winter Fair, it’s always a fun event,” Millar said. “It has a great atmosphere because it’s in a smaller environment. I think the spectators get a lot more appreciation for what we do ‘cause they’re so close.” Millar will be competing in both national and international events in the tournament. He said that he hasn’t decided which horses he will use for the upcoming competitions. “It’s always a tough show because there will be some top American riders, European riders and our best Canadian riders,” he said. To follow Millar’s results over the tournament, visit http://royJonathon Millar goes for a stroll at Millar Brooke Farm in Perth.

Vincent Price and Lon Chaney didn’t show up, but Vincent Chainey did. And the Shawville Pontiacs goalie probably wishes he stayed home for Halloween. A Sunday matinee at the Perth and District Community Arena saw the Blue Wings fire 43 shots at Chainey, who let eight pucks get past him as Perth took an 8-1 win. Perth coach Steve Sundin said a “back to basics� attitude was key to the Blue Wings victory, adding his club doesn’t play as well away as it does at home. “They beat us in Shawville,� Sundin said of the Pontiacs. “We need to learn to win on the road. We play our next three games on the road.� For now the Blue Wings can savour Sunday’s victory along with their Halloween candies. Perth’s Jared Havelock opened the scoring during Sunday’s first period, before the Blue Wings turned on the jets for the second frame. Perth added four goals in the second period and three more in the third. Blair Barr and Dan Weir each had a pair. Connor McGahey, Shawn McGillivray and Peter McGahey notched singles. “The first period was good, then we seemed to fall asleep,� said Pontiacs head coach Daryl Faught. “We’re not a team that can come from behind.� Shawville managed a single goal with less than 10 minutes to play, breaking

Perth goaltender Jeremy Wright’s bid for a shutout. Wright was the author of his own misfortune, taking a roughing penalty while his team was already shorthanded. Shawville’s lone goal came just as the Pontiacs five-on-three advantage expired. Wright seemed to shrug off the missed addition to his personal stats, focusing instead on the two points in the Valley Division standings. He said his teammates did a great job bouncing back from a 5-3 loss on Friday in Metcalfe to the lowly Jets. “It was a good recovery from Friday,� Wright said. “We just haven’t played well lately. Today we finally clicked and passes were getting through.� The goalie said he was surprised Chainey was left in the Shawville net through eight goals. “I thought they’d take him out in the second period,� Wright said. “He had some tough luck.� As of Sunday night, Perth stands second in the Valley Division, with 17 points from 14 games. The Arnprior Packers are three points up on the Blue Wings. Perth is back on the ice for three road games in Ottawa West, Almonte and Arnprior before the next home game, Friday, Nov. 12 at 7:45 p.m. versus the Stittsville Royals.

The Wings met the West Carleton Warriors on Friday, Oct. 22. The Warriors were in command of the game from start to finish. They simply out-skated and out-shot the Wings winning the game 3-0. The boys played a close game against the Cornwall Colts later that day and came away with a 1-0 win. The Wings’ goal was scored by Colin Leeflang, assisted by Jakob Erwin and Bryce Oakes, with the shutout earned by goaltender Jarrid Farr. On Oct. 23, the Wings brought their “A� game to the match against the Arnprior Packers. The offence delivered two goals each period, besting their opponents 6-0. Goals were scored by Erwin, Evan Noonan (two), Leeflang, Jacob Lyon and Brock Liko, with assists by Cody King and Tom Coyne. Goaltender Nickolas LePage earned the shutout. A few hours later, the Wings played an intense game against the Smiths Falls Bears. At the end of the first period, Erwin scored for the Wings to

take the lead 1-0, but the Bears answered right back to tie it up 1-1. The Wings went ahead 2-1 in the middle of the second period, when Lyon scored on a pass from Leeflang. The Wings’ held their lead, despite being shorthanded for a great deal of the remainder of the game, and Aaron Moore scored on an empty net to give the Wings a 3-1 victory. This win carried the Wings to the championship game that was held on Sunday, Oct. 24, in a re-match with the West Carleton Warriors. The Wings played a different game, and were more focused than in their previous encounter. They held their own against the strong West Carleton team and had some great offensive chances, but luck was not on their side. The Warriors scored to take a 1-0 lead in the second period, but the Wings’ Chris Cardinal answered back, tying the game 1-1 the third. The game went into overtime, consisting of four-on-four play for three minutes. The Warriors scored at just over two minutes into overtime to take the championship. It was a tight game and the boys had played very well. The Wings’ Colin Leeflang was named “Best Defenceman� of the tournament.

Perth and Lanark Midget B team splits weekend games BY GERRY SALISBURY The Midget B Wings travelled to Carp on Oct. 10, to face off in a late-night tilt against the Warriors. The Wings came out a little flat and ended up on the wrong side of a 5-0 loss. That was enough though to get the lads fired up for their first home game in Lanark against the first-place Richmond Rams on Oct. 11. The team came out of the gate much more inspired and were rewarded with a first-period goal by Nick Nadeau off a nice pass from Zach Haime to take a 1-0 lead. Richmond tied the game 1-1 shortly afterwards, but that was the only shot the Rams could get past the stellar goaltend-

ing of Stephen Rothwell. The Wings’ Braeden Fowler scored to put them back in the lead 2-1 in the second period converting on a rebound off a shot by Nadeau. In the third period, Nadeau, assisted by Fowler, beat the Richmond goalie for his second goal of the game. The Wings were flying high, throwing the Rams off their tight checking game. Rothwell made several key saves to keep his team in the game, and all the defensemen really pitched in to clear the puck from the Wings’ zone. The win put the Wings into a tie for first place. Come out and support the Wings and watch some outstanding hockey.

Getting to know … Erik Karlsson By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com Two years ago, he took centre stage as the Ottawa Senators’ top pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. And truth be told, Erik Karlsson was a bit of a mystery man to many of the fans attending the first round of that draft at Scotiabank Place. But the Senators were convinced they’d landed a gem of a blueliner with rare offensive gifts. With one season now under his belt, the 20-year-old native of Landsbro, Sweden, has already gone a long way toward justifying the immense faith Senators management had in him when they brought Karlsson into the organization. He made the team out of training camp last fall but a month into the year, was sent down to the Binghamton Senators for some American Hockey League

seasoning. By the time the calendar flipped to January, however, Karlsson began to establish himself as one of the Senators’ top blueliners, a 5-11, 175-pound dynamo with breathtaking skills with the puck. He finished his rookie season with five goals and 21 assists in 60 games. His 26-point total ranked second among all Ottawa defenceman, behind only veteran Filip Kuba. Karlsson took some time out to talk about hockey, his homeland and whole lot more. Q: Your favourite hockey memory growing up in Sweden? A: When I was picked for the Under-16 national team when I was 15. That’s the one I can think of right now. Q: Who were your hockey idols growing up? A: There were so many. I’d probably say Nick Lidstrom. (Daniel) Alfredsson was one of them. (Mats) Sundin, (Peter) Forsberg, those guys. Q: When did you know you could make it to the NHL? A: Last

year was probably when I realized that I could play here. Q: Your welcome to the NHL moment? A: When they told me to get a house here and get settled. Q: Best piece of advice you ever got from Daniel Alfredsson? A: He helped me a lot, so it’s hard to pick out one thing. But he always told me to be positive, even when it’s going not so good. Q: What do you miss the most about Sweden? A: The lunches. It’s food that you don’t have here. Q: What’s your favourite thing to do when you go home? A: I like playing tennis. Q: What other sport would you like to play for a living if you weren’t a hockey player? A: Tennis player. Q: How much would it mean to you to play for Sweden at the Olympics? A: It would be awesome. It’s a thing you really want to do. Q: What do like to watch on TV? A: I watch a lot of Two And A Half Man. I’ve seen it all. That’s my favourite show. And I like Friends, too. Q: Your favourite type of music. A: I like house music. Q: What’s the first thing you bought after you signed your first contract?

A: A pair of new shoes. Q: What do you like to do to relax? A: Watch TV. Q: What’s your dream car? A: It would be a Ferrari. Q: Three things on your bucket list. A: Win the Stanley Cup, win an Olympic gold medal and have kids. Q: Your favourite NHL city to visit. A: Vancouver. The atmosphere and the surroundings there are so nice.

Atlanta Thrashers Nov. 9, 7:30 p.m., Sportsnet East

Andrew Ladd Photo by Scott Cunningham/ Getty Images

Q: Talent you’d most like to have. A: I can’t sing. I like to sing in the car, but I’m not very good.

With the addition of a bit of championship pedigree, the Thrashers have made some early season noise in the Eastern Conference. Atlanta’s off-season overhaul included the acquisition of four players — forwards Dustin Byfuglien, Andrew Ladd and Ben Eager, along with defenceman Brent Sopel — who had a major hand in bringing the Stanley Cup to Chicago last season. Homegrown talent is also part of the mix, with former first-round draft picks Evander Kane and Alexander Burmistrov seeing regular duty for the Thrashers. Tobias Enstrom is an underrated force on the Atlanta blue line, while Chris Mason has shouldered the bulk of the goaltending duties early on.

Future Wings volleyball development program kicks off The Lanark County Volleyball Club is pleased to announce a development program in Smiths Falls that will provide young players, aged 10 to 14, the opportunity to enhance their skills and knowledge of the game. The 12-week program will be a combination of skill development and game play. The first eight weeks will be geared towards learning the fundamentals of the game. Learning to pass, set, serve, block, attack, play offence and defence will be the focus of the first half of the program. In the final four weeks, the participants will be placed in teams and will then put into practice what they have learned. The program will run Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. starting on Nov. 10. The location of the program is St.

Francis de Sales (43 Russell St. E.). The program will be run by Cliff Woods. He has been involved in the game of volleyball for over 30 years as a player, a parent, an official and a coach.
