Local amputee to tackle Army Run Pamela Pearson Villager Staff VARS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tyler Preston, of Vars, was a typical and active 13-year-old in the fall of 2010. He was involved in army cadets, rode his four wheeler, played broomball, baseball, soccer and went deer hunting with his dad Shaun Preston on weekends. But on Oct., 14, 2010, while at cadets, Preston started to feel unwell. He was picked up and went home to bed. After a short time of flu-like symptoms, including a rash and fever, his mother Renee Gilarowski, took him to Ottawa's Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Preston's diagnosis was Meningococcemia - an acute and potentially life-threatening infection of the bloodstream and within 48 hours, was put into a induced coma in hopes of slowing the deadly infection. As a result, the lower half of both of his legs had to be amputated and while he survived the illness, Preston has continued to endure multiple surgeries and has needed many skin grafts, which are extremely painful. Recently, Preston had another surgery to smooth out the bone growths on each leg. But during all this â&#x20AC;&#x153;His attitude has been awesome and has exuded strength, courage and determination,â&#x20AC;? says Gilarowski. Continued on page 3

Chlorine vapour cause of waterpark incident Pamela Pearson Villager Staff LIMOGES â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On August 7, Ontario Provincial Police and PrescottRussell Paramedics responded to a call at the Calypso Water Park at approximately 1:30 p.m. when 13 children became ill with symptoms of nausea, vomiting and airway irritation, while swimming in the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wave pool. Swimmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reported a strong odour of chlorine coming from the pool. Twelve children, rang-

ing in age from four to 14 years old, were accessed and transported to the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) by the P-R ambulance. A thirteenth child was accessed and released to parents. Staff at the park evacuated the pool and closed it until health officials could test it. In a statement released by Calypso on Aug. 8, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A 15-minute shutdown of the wave poolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s filtration system, without a concurrent shut-down of the poolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

chlorine pumps, caused a buildup of concentrated chlorine which turned into a gas upon reaching the pool when the system was restarted.â&#x20AC;? According to other media releases, Public Health official Nicole Laplante stated that further testing has since been completed and has â&#x20AC;&#x153;turned up nothing - everything was in the acceptable limits. Air quality testing by fire-fighters also turned up nothing.â&#x20AC;? The statement from the

Calypso Waterpark public relations department said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the area where the children were affected features several out-puts from the water filtration system, which explains why only the one location was affected.â&#x20AC;? The park team also â&#x20AC;&#x153;extended its deepest apologies for the incident that occurred.â&#x20AC;? In a statement made by the Eastern Ontario Health Unit, who arrived on the scene shortly after notification of the incident, says that they have â&#x20AC;&#x153;been work-

Russell Fire Department Photoelectric vs. Ionization Debate Continues

In November 2010 the city of Palo Alto became the second California city to issue a bylaw restricting the use of ionization smoke alarms. Albany, California did the same thing five months earlier at the insistence of their fire chief Marc McGinn. Both cities now mandate the use of only photoelectric smoke alarms, echoing a similar law passed by the State of Vermont, which also restricts the use of ionization type alarms. Massachusetts is the only other US state that has laws restricting the type of technology used, however their laws concerning fire protection are far more encompassing, even stricter than the province of Ontario in many ways. First let’s examine the difference between the two technologies, keeping in mind that both types of smoke alarms must meet the same standards as set out by the Canadian Standards Association with regards to early detection of fire. Ionization alarms, which are the most common, contain a small radioactive device which creates an electrical current between two plates, if the current is disturbed by smoke or steam particles the alarm will sound. Photoelectric alarms utilize a small beam of light and a photocell, when smoke particles enter the alarm they scatter the light and reduce the amount of light hitting the photocell which in turn causes the alarm to sound. But which one is better? It is commonly

accepted that ionization alarms detect fast burning fires better than photoelectric alarms, however photoelectric alarms are better at detecting a smouldering fire. It is also accepted that photoelectric alarms are better suited for areas near kitchens and bathrooms to reduce nuisance alarms. The reason behind the push for photoelectric alarms in California, is that officials there feel that smouldering fires pose a greater threat to people when sleeping. In the words of the Palo Alto Fire Marshall Gordon Simpson “It’s almost unheard of for fast-burning fire to kill people in their sleep, it’s the smouldering kind that usually kills that way.” I find this statement very odd and personally do not buy into this way of thinking, as early detection for any kind of fire is important, especially a fast burning fire. The argument itself establishes that the two technologies have their strengths and weaknesses, so why not take advantage of this fact and encourage the use of combination units. Smoke alarms have been commercially available for many years with dual technology in one unit, some of these units even include carbon monoxide detectors. When it comes to fire safety we should try to take advantage of every opportunity to better protect ourselves, in the case of smoke alarms dual technology makes more sense than putting our eggs in one basket.

Luckily the rain held off for the 21st annual Volksfest, held at the Embrun Arena park grounds on Sun., Aug 12 . Over 150 cars, campers and custom-made VW’s were showing off their chrome and various modifications at the largest non-judged VW event in Canada. Along with Beetles, Buses, Kharman Ghias, water-cooled Golfs, Jettas, Rabbits, Scirrocos and Corrados, spectators talked to the owners, purchase parts and memorabilia from VW vendors and have a barbeque lunch where the proceeds were donated to Cambridge Public School to help purchase new playground equipment. Unfortunately the events Yamaha Stagepas 500 PA system was stolen and the organizers would like it returned. Volkfest can be contacted at info@volksfest or the system can be drop it off at your local OPP office.

Continued from the front And after reviewing the technical report following the investigation conducted by Calypso Waterpark has stated, the health unit are “Confident that this was an isolated incident caused by a combination of atypical circumstances,” states Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health. “The Eastern Ontario Health Unit is now working with Calypso Waterpark administration to ensure that policies and procedures are in place to prevent any similar incident in the future.” At the time of publication, no response was forthcoming from the park when asked if the incident occured because of a failure on the technician’s part to maintain the equipment to park standards and procedures, and if any new procedures had been put in place to avoid an incident such as this from occurring again. For further information, please contact the EOHU at 613-933-1375 or 1 800 267-7120. Ask for Health Line.

Army Run Continued from the front After an eight month stay in CHEO, and having overcome the loss of both lower legs, Preston graduated Grade 8 with his friends at Navan's Heritage Public School and won the Helping Hands Award. Gilarowski also told The Villager, how the community of Vars has been there for the family throughout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The local volunteer fire department built a special deck inside the garage for when Tyler came home â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the day before Christmas - so his wheelchair could be lifted to the door level. And this is only one

example of how the community has helped us.â&#x20AC;? she explained. In May, Preston attended a three-day War Amps CHAMP seminar, which covered topics such as growing up as an amputee, the latest developments in artificial limbs and learning the importance of staying active. Preston was invited to an Amputees in Action session to demonstrated his daily and recreational artificial limbs and devices to the group. In a press release from the CHAMP program, Danita Chisholm, Executive Director stated that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seminars are an integral part of the Child Amputee Program, creating

lasting bonds of friendship as Champs grow up learning from one another,â&#x20AC;? and continued that they â&#x20AC;&#x153;also afford parents the opportunity to share personal experiences and advice to help each other overcome the unique challenges of raising a child amputee.â&#x20AC;? Now attending Cairine Wilson Secondary School, in Orleans, Preston has started to take life by the horns and see what it has to offer. The one activity he is most looking forward to this fall, is returning to his army cadet unit in full force â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the 3018. Preston is also back on the ice in a game called sledge hockey recently placing second in a

tournament. He also has plans to learn how to dive and scuba this winter as well. As Preston grows, he will be re-outfitted with artificial limbs and possibly more skin graphs, but he truly believes that people â&#x20AC;&#x153;Should never give up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you just have to keep going.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an attitude that Tyler has developed from all this and it is contagious.â&#x20AC;? says his mother. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is my motivation to do and live better, â&#x20AC;? as she joins him in the 2012 Canada Army run being held in September. Preston has been training on the crank bike, that was funded through the Solider On program, so he can just do that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; soldier on.

Symington. Most of the recent precipitation â&#x20AC;&#x153;just runs off and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t infiltrate into the ground,â&#x20AC;? he explains, adding a week of soaking rain is really required. Still, given the recent trend of a little more rain and Environment Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forecast for

additional moisture in August, Symington predicts a reduction in the drought level around the end of the month. But Level 2 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in which residents are asked to curtail water usage by 20 per cent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; remains in effect based on both low precipitation and low water levels in the South Nation and its tributaries.

EDITORIAL Is it time for parental training? As the 2012 Olympics come to a close, it is recognized that extreme highs and crushing lows are part of an elite athlete’s life. But what do mothers and fathers go through while their kids toil away in search of national and Olympic glory? From the audience’s perspective, watching the Olympics can be exciting, even overwhelming, as they first encounter an elite athlete and watch breathlessly their daring feats of athletic skill. They only see these athletes at their strongest and most confident. But what about the parents who remember those athletes along their journey, especially when they were their most vulnerable? Parents who recognize their own child’s body language after years of watching the wins and losses while they developed. Parents whose own emotional toil shows as the lines of worry and stress from years of early mornings, long competitions, days on the road, even injuries – stress they endure to one day see their child stand on a podium with a medal. At televised events, the camera will occasionally scan to the parents, if they are lucky enough to be able attend, to see them elated with their child’s success or crushed as they read a subtle look as they realize their child knows their performance was sub-par. Honouring the families that produce our Olympians is a nice touch, as it humanizes the athletes and puts their accomplishments in an important social context. Thanks to commercial sponsorship and mass advertising, the audience is reminded that behind the athletes there are parents, coaches, community staff and volunteers. Are the parents of Olympians anymore competitive or different than those who spend so many hours at the rink or soccer pitch for a local house league? Does the phenomenon of “helicopter parenting”, where apparently normal and loving parents become seized by the need to hover over every aspect of their children’s lives, apply? Does it bother them to see the limits the coaches push their children’s bodies to? Or do they feel that it is they who have sacrificed, and they are owed something because of the level of commitment to support that athlete? How do those parents impact their child’s concentration during competition – when the child sees their parent’s body language in the stands: is it one of “Just the boost I need to do my best” or is it “Better not screw this up” for fear they destroy a parent’s dream? How many potentially elite athletes are culled from the national talent pool because “training” does not include parents? How many kids lose interest because their parent’s stress and expectations cross the healthy line of being supportive and encouraging to one where they start living their lives through the experiences of their offspring? Is some of Toronto’s bid money, or the Own The Podium program money, better spent on helping parents foster the athletes of the future, by helping them understand their role at the earliest ages, and the hurdles they will experience?

A rare breed indeed Sometime before, after or during being named Russell Township Volunteer of the Year, leading the Russell and District Horticultural Society, launching the annual Living Locally Fair, instigating the dry stone bridge in MacDougall Park, and winning a Tri-Valley Conservation Award, Russell’s Lindley McPhail became queen bee of Rare Breeds Canada. I knew Lindley got involved regionally in RBC a few years ago. But now she’s national chair of the group dedicated to conserving, evaluating and promoting breeds of livestock and poultry endangered in this country, while remaining co-chair of the Eastern Ontario chapter. It’s a natural fit for Lindley who owns some of the breeds in question. And if she’s going to become involved in a cause, you can be sure she’ll take on a leadership role. I missed Lindley’s rocket rise to the top of RBC. I just found out about it last weekend while attending Canada’s oldest annual agricultural fair held at Williamstown, now entering its third century. Decked out for the occasion with other volunteers in a yellow Rare Breeds Canada shirt, Lindley was staffing the organization’s display at the fair. And what a display it was! I happened upon it as I strolled through the fair-

grounds by the Raisin River, taking in the sights and sounds while munching merrily on home-baked butter tarts. Suddenly I came upon what seemed to be a brand new, good-sized marquee with the RBC sign posted out front. I guess, I said to myself, Rare Breeds has a little spot tucked away in the back of this tent, probably a few animals and a table with some pamphlets. You see, as a supporter of the cause, I’ve become used to the RBC display mounted at fairs over the years. “Modest” is a good word to describe it. Imagine my dismay when I discovered that the entire tent was devoted to Rare Breeds. There had to be a couple of dozen cages and pens under the canvas and they were all shiny new. The animals inside them had also been shined up for the occasion. Lindley and her colleagues scampered about filling in visitors as to the importance of taking a stand against extinction of livestock breeds which, around the world, occurs at the rate of six breeds per month. Holy Canadienne cow! Rare Breeds must have hit the government grant jackpot to afford this big display and all of these luxurious appointments! Either that or they found themselves an animal loving patron with very deep pockets. It turned out to be a bit of both. Operating on a shoestring, RBC has done a

Language laws restrict freedom of speech The Editor: Official Languages Czar Graham Fraser cannot justify his office. He doesn’t get complaints about problems getting service in French at airports because there are no problems. Rather than adding already overburdened taxpayers with the cost of 1500 spies, the Commissioner should do his job and finally meet with Canadians for Language Fairness, who have been requesting, and promised, meetings and public debates with him since gaining office, but keeps backing out at the last minute. If he truly represents both languages, he would speak to our group which is a voice for the Victims of Forced Bilingualism. But he won’t.

commendable job getting the message out through its volunteer contingent and its modest presentations. Last year, the organization set up the basic booth at the Williamstown Fair in an out-of-the-way location with minimal drawing power… par for the course. They settled for it because they’re used to taking a back seat at such events. Long-time agricultural society member and past president Ron Eamer didn’t like what he saw and decided to do something about it. I mean, Ron liked it in that he appreciated RBC being at the fair but he felt badly about the exhibit being stuck “over near the latrines.” He put two and two together and came up with a great publicity move: The Williamstown Fair is the oldest in Canada… that makes it the logical place to showcase livestock breeds which go back as far as the fair and beyond. As a past president of the St. Lawrence Parks Commission which oversees Upper Canada Village and Fort Henry in Kingston, Ron has some experience in helping to create and manage tourist attractions and in coming up with the cash to fund them. He went to work applying for grant money but not before getting a commitment from RBC: If I can get the money to put together a decent display, will you come to the fair, set it up and

Neither will the Minister of Official Languages James Moore. Canadians for Language Fairness and Language Fairness for All had a meeting arranged for June 13 with Mr. Moore, then it was rescheduled again...and again...and again. Now, we are supposedly the second group he will meet with when he returns to Ottawa in September. We are not holding our breath. Graham Fraser’s title should be changed to the Official French Commissioner. Better yet, his job and office should be done away with, saving Canadian taxpayers $2.4-billion a year.

staff it in years to come? The answer was a resounding yes. Ron hit pay dirt… $26,000, the full amount he requested. He confirmed it after tracking me down at the butter tart booth. That amount of money goes a long way in mounting a showcase for Rare Breeds or any other group. And why not! It’s a very important cause and we should all be paying more attention. Not only do traditional breeds that have fallen out of fashion – such as the Canadienne – deserve to be preserved because of their contribution to Canadian agriculture, in some cases, on a smaller scale, they’re simply more efficient than the popular commercial breeds. RBC acts as a resource centre and clearing house for endangered farm animals, collecting and maintaining a semen inventory, publishing information, collaborating with similar groups worldwide, and finding homes for livestock and poultry that owners can no longer keep. Local residents will get their chance to hear the RBC message first hand at both the Russell and Metcalfe fairs. While the grand Williamstown booth isn’t going on the road, Lindley promises a solid display at both venues.

Quebecers, Ontarians, or New Brunswickers who are suffering the tyranny by the minority, thanks to politicians and social engineers. People had better start joining in the rallies like the one held by the Language Fairness for All group in Cornwall yesterday. Freedom of speech is lost the moment language laws are implemented. Just ask Jean-Serge Brisson who was told by the Ontario Court of Appeal that, yes, a French-only sign promotes the French culture better than a bilingual sign does, but for the good of the group they approve of, they felt they had justification to take away his inalienable right to Freedom of Speech and force him to put two languages on his private property.

Local farmers need our help Cindy Saucier Special to The Villager The recent rain was a welcome sight but is it enough? Talking to some local farmers, they have indicated some crops are lost, some are small, some just havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grown. We can all see the effects in our own gardens. I found some flowers bloomed but were then dead two days later. My Echinechea was particularly hard hit. I was hand watering with water from my rain barrel but it just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough. A flower is nothing compared to a crop that farmers depend on, we depend on the food, and animals depend on the feed. The drought of 2012 is driving prices up. For example, the early heat and dry weather means earlier harvesting than normal and for shorter periods. It is even more important than ever to shop locally and buy what our local markets have to offer. The US recently declared the 2012 drought â&#x20AC;&#x153;the worst natural disasterâ&#x20AC;? in US history. There were too high temperatures in March (remember that spring) followed by frost, poor pollination, too

much heat, and not nearly enough rainfall. Everything was affected: orchards, field crops, produce, and forage. While some farmers use methods such as tilling, good soil management, composting, mulching, and ways to retain moisture, the long drought has had a huge impact. Even the most recent rainfall, while it seemed long and steady, ran off and did not penetrate the dried out soil. Now more than ever, consumers need to support local farms and shop at farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; markets. Visit your local farm fairs because the message is there, â&#x20AC;&#x153;from farm to tableâ&#x20AC;?. Our local Russell fair is promoting living locally. You will be able to find what is here and where you can find it. We are fortunate to have two local markets, one across from Foodland and one on North Russell Rd. just pass Russell High School. Herweyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local market has lots of great produce and farm fresh eggs. There is also a little vendor in Embrun on Notre Dame. Metcalfe Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market is open every Saturday morning from 8

a.m. to noon at the Metcalfe Agricultural Fairgrounds. There are artisans, homebaked goods, home-made jams, jellies, salad dressings, honey and beeswax candle products, fair trade coffee, Swiss Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bakery, locally grown produce, organic produce, and so much more. There is a social tea/coffee area and often music and local entertainment. Vars recently opened a local farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market on July 21. It runs from 8 a.m. to noon. It is located at St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church at Rockdale and Devine Rds. My message has always been â&#x20AC;&#x153;eat real and eat localâ&#x20AC;?. It is more important now than ever! TAKE NOTE: COG hosts an organic farm tour on Sun. Aug. 19 at 10 a.m. Jasper Apple Farm will be visited as well as see vegetable growing extended with garden domes and greenhouses. Enjoy a picnic lunch (bring own) and tour at Funny Duck Farm. See certified organic livestock plus other organic products. Call 613-838-2900 or sign up with Dick at: dcoote@xplornet.com

Classics on the block From left, this 1972 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe SS and 1960 Cadillac 623 were two of the 50 classic cars auctioned off at Adesa Auctions first annual Classic Car auction Sat., Aug 11.

Fox Run/Walk only a month away It is only one month until the 32nd Annual Terry Fox Run/Walk. On Sun., Sept., 16 from 9:30 a.m. until noon, you can walk, run, roller blade, bike, bring a stroller, a well-behaved four footed friend, or wheel chair the trail to raise funds for cancer research. The start is behind Mother Teresa School in Russell and in Embrun at the Train Depot. In Russell, Cindy Saucier, Judy McFaul, Marg Cholowski and her team of volunteers will sign you up and Mayor J.P. St. Pierre will encourage you on. There is a middle station across from Therkelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where there is a washroom

    6DA Q=H #JJ

and water station and the Pilon family is there. You do not have to do the entire trail. Go as far as you want, as long as you want. If you can only spare one half hour that morning, that is fine. There will be face painting by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s An Art Thingâ&#x20AC;? for a minimal charge, of which some will go to cancer research. Caroline Rail will warm the group up with her Zumba moves. The Russell and Embrun Fire Departments will be out once again crossing our participants safely. Thank you to the volunteers who give of their time. We thank Russell Township for providing the funds for the porta-potties and to Chez

Lili party supplies for the tents at both sites. There is no registration fee and no minimal amount that needs to be raised. You can collect pledges, make an on-site donation, or donate on-line. Pledge forms are available at local businesses such as Curves in Embrun, RBC, Giant Tiger, Foodland, Pronto, McEwenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gas, Scotia Russell Arena, Bank, Kindercare., and Fill Yer Boots coffee shop. As Terry said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every dollar countsâ&#x20AC;? and last year your generosity helped Site #82 raise over $11,000 locally. We had close to 200 participants and we hope more of you come out this year.

Food bank fund raiser to be yearly event Pamela Pearson Villager Staff RUSSELL- On the evening of Mon., July 31 the Olde Towne West subdivision held its first annual Ice Cream Social in support of Russell Township’s Good Neighbours Food Bank. The spontaneous gathering of residents was originally intended to be a community get together over the Canada Day weekend but the focus changed after learning about the break-in and theft of the food bank the previous

week. “Planning started only three days prior but as the word spread, other Russell residents attended,” stated organizer Nicole Jardine, OTW resident and owner of Fill Yer Boots Dessert and Coffee Shoppe. “We have a very generous community that is always quick to rise to the occasion and help out where needed,” she said and continued to tell The Villager that, as a result of such support, the plan is to make this

RHS pick-ups Russell High School report cards, graduation awards and photographs are still awaiting pick-up at the school. A reminder that if a student has an overdue textbook or library book, it must be returned or paid for before the report card can be released. Please contact the school with any questions. School hours are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday to Thursday and closed on Fridays.

an annual food bank fundraiser that will be held the first Monday, following the house league soccer season and it will be opened up to the Russell community. The event was attended by approximately 200 people and included local businesses chipping in to make the day go easier. Ice cream cones and ice to keep the ice cream cold were donated by Karine Hamel of Russell Foodland; the trailer to hold the food items was provided by Julien Patenaude of Melanie Construction; ice cream and toppings were donated by Fill Yer Boots Dessert and Coffee Shoppe and face painting was done by Alexa Tribble and Dayna Bekkers. Jardine said “None of

this would have been made possible without the help and support of the entire community but special mention should go out to Daniel Flegg, Kerry-Lynne Cook, Tina Collins and her husband, Sebastien, Julianne Ouderkirk, Miriame Martin, and Tyler Tribble for keeping everyone organized on the food trailer!” In all, $657 was donated and 843 items were collected on behalf of the food bank. Jardine said “I am so proud of the community in which we live! Everyone is so generous and willing to step in and help their neighbours. I believe this again proves that Russell is a little community with a huge heart.”

Theatre alum pass torch METCALFE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Just Kiddinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Theatre (JKT) summer camps, were a big success this year thanks to many JKT veterans who passed the joy of drama on to newcomers. Seven JKT veterans assisted Camp Leader, Megan Piercey Monafu with games, leadership, and enthusiasm, instilling the same culture of cooperation and teamwork they grew up with at the theatre company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of our teen counsellors have actively participated in JKT since they were eight and nine years old,â&#x20AC;? explains Andrie Nel, founder and Executive Director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so nice to see them sharing their knowledge and passion with

campers.â&#x20AC;? Although counsellors receive the requisite volunteer hours for their jobs, Nel says most do it purely for the joy, as stated by Sydney Miller â&#x20AC;&#x153;I already have 120 hours, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about the hours.â&#x20AC;? Miller and her fellow counsellors face a bigger dilemma than just getting volunteer hours. The theatre companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate is about exposing and â&#x20AC;&#x153;turning onâ&#x20AC;? rural children to theatre, and with that accomplished, the group is now facing limited options of where to go to continue their development. Nel confirms this is an issue by stating â&#x20AC;&#x153;with a new client we are responsible for inspiring them and have an

equal responsibility to continue to challenge them.â&#x20AC;? Last May the company announced exciting new changes to the 2012-13 season to offer introductory as well as intermediate and advanced programming. Additions include intermediate level workshops focusing on building specific theatre skills and a new audition-based repertory company, that will not only serve the rural community of Metcalfe, but will also be available to other organizations and communities.

Fair cutting event now nationally-sanctioned RUSSELL - The Russell Fairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fall Cutting Horse Competition will run for two full days this year. This event is now nationallysanctioned and is expected to bring participants from Western and Eastern Canada and from across the United States including competitors from Vermont, New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire and Texas. This judged event involves a team of horses and rider have two-and-one-half minutes to cut or separate as many individual cows from the herd as they choose, usually two or three. As the horse slowly walks into the herd, the rider begins the process

of selecting one cow to cut from the rest of the group. Once a cow is selected and the cut made, the rider loosens the reins, grabs the saddle horn and allows the horse to take control of the contest. The horse must now prevent the cow from returning to the herd. If the cow becomes inactive or loses interest in returning to the herd, the rider may lift the reins, signaling to the horse to â&#x20AC;&#x153;quit the cow.â&#x20AC;? The cow is allowed to return to the herd and the rider repeats the selection process. This year, Calgary Stampede champion and current President of the

Carkner excited for new opportunity with New York Islanders Darren Matte Villager Sports Matt Carkner will be trading in his familiar red and black colours for the blue and orange come next season as the defenseman, from Winchester, signed with the Islanders as a free agent on July 1. Carkner took time to speak with The Villager and explained what it was like being a free agent. “It was a crazy day to be a free agent for sure. In the end, I was happy where I ended up. I would have been happy to stay with the Ottawa Senators, but I wanted a multi-year deal and the Sens were only prepared to offer one-year. So I would have been in the same situation next year. Now I am just ready for the season.” Carkner said that his agent was busy working the phones and there were three other teams that were vying for his services, but after thinking about it he thought the Islanders would be the best option for him and would give him the opportunity for the most playing time. “New York General Manager, Garth Snow contacted me directly. He explained the deal and their situation. Snow explained that I was one of his primary targets and hearing that you are really wanted makes you feel good. The raise also showed how serious they

were.” The terms of his contract are that it is a three-year deal worth $4.5-million ($1.5million per season). That is almost double the $700,000 he made last season with Ottawa. For Carkner it was the three years that really helped him make the decision. “It was great, just what I was hoping for. I

thought I might be offered two, but a few of the offers came in at three years.” One of those offers was from the Colorado Avalanche who actually announced they had signed Carkner earlier in the day. Carkner also clarified what happened with the Avalanche. “I spoke to a lot of teams, one of which was Colorado, There was some miscommunication between the general manager’s assistant and my agent’s assistant

and they released the signing too soon. I had never actually agreed on anything.” Initially, Carkner was concerned about trading in the small market team that is close to his home for Long Island. However, he got a phone call that helped persuade him. “Doug Weight called me and told me how much he loved it there. He said it i s not

New York, it is a smaller spot and a good family environment.” The outlook for Carkner next season is pretty good, he still sees himself as a number five or six defenseman, but with the young crop of players he could see his role increase. Still, he is not taking anything for granted and will continue to work as hard as he always has. “I believe playing time is earned. I expect more than last year, but I will earn as much as possible.”

Endurance ride comes to nearby township BERWICK— The Seaway Valley Arabian Horse Association (SVAHA) is proud to announce the Stormont Endurance Ride taking place September 2nd, in North Stormont, utilizing trails in the Warwick Forest and other areas of the South Nation Conservation watershed area. This is a world-class competition and organizers are expecting up to 100 horses and riders from across Canada, the United States and Europe, as well as their support crews, volunteer vets and Fédération Equestre Internationale (F.E.I.) officials. It is an internationally recognized event for both senior and junior riders with distances of 80km and 160km to be ridden over an 18-hour period. The competitors will start arriving Aug. 30th, with vet checks starting

Or call 1-866-307-3541 Fax: 613-448-3260

Sept 1st. The ride itself will begin at 9 a.m. on Sept. 2nd. The Stormont Endurance Rides will utilize local farms, properties and country roads within SD&G as well as trails in the South Nation Conservation watershed. The event will enable Canadian athletes to compete against other international riders as well as attempt to achieve their goal of being nominated for the Canadian Equestrian Endurance Team competing in championships held around the world and for the World Equestrian Games, in France, in Aug. 2014. It also gives young riders the opportunity to qualify for the Ontario/Canadian Team at the North American Junior and Young Riders Championships held annually in Kentucky, as well as the World JYR Endurance Championships held every two years.

These endurance rides are sanctioned by Endurance Canada/Equine Canada, the Ontario Competitive Trail Riding Association, and the Arabian Horse Association. This is the only F.E.I. qualifying event being held in Eastern Canada, one of only three in the country. Endurance riding is a non-Olympic F.E.I. discipline that is currently the fastest growing of all the equestrian sports around the world, surpassing jumping and eventing. Endurance riding involves a horse and rider team, completing a set course of up to 160 kms, with maximum times assigned to each distance, within a 24-hour period. Multi-day rides are becoming increasingly popular in North America, offering two to five days of competitions, each day being considered as an independent, separate contest. Any breed

With the youthful squad, Carkner is looking to bring his experience to the team and show them how to be successful. “There are only six of us that are over 30 so it is a young team. I have had a lot of ups and downs in my career and know how to be successful. I have always been tough on myself, try to be a leader and a good team guy. I will be there to shape guys up or give them a pat on the back when they need it.” Still, starting the season with a new team will not be easy for Carkner. “I had a good three years with the Sens. It was nice being close to home. I had a lot of fun having friends and family around. It is tough to leave, but I just see it as an adjustment and a new challenge for me and my family.” There were many good times for Carkner with Ottawa that he reflected on. “Playoffs are always the best time in hockey. This year coming back to the fans after our loss in game seven to the Rangers will be something I will keep in my memory. It was a thrill to play there.” Known for his charitable work not only in North Dundas, but also in the Ottawa area, Carkner knows it will be harder for him to keep his presence in the of horse can be used for endurance riding, although Arabians and part-Arabians, bred for centuries for stamina and endurance, have proven to be the most successful breeds. Riders aim to finish the course as quickly as possible, with a “sound”, healthy horse.

community, but is determined to do his best. “I won’t be as accessible, but I will continue to work with like the organizations Capital City Condors and Winchester District Memorial Hospital where I will continue to work with their Chair.” As for the rest of the summer, Carkner has work to do in terms of setting up in New York and preparing for the season. “I will keep to my regular routine, but

because of the knee injuries I have suffered in the past, I will need to be a bit smarter. So far everything is going well.” Carkner recently made his first trip to Long Island and is now just looking forward to the start of the 2012-13 NHL season. He, like all of the other NHL players, are now just hoping that collective bargaining agreement talks go smoothly so that the season starts on time.

Winchester’s Matt Carkner is all smiles after inking a three-year $4.5-million dollar contract with the New York Islanders on July 1. Carkner admits it will be an adjustment after spending the last three years with the Ottawa Senators, but says he is looking forward to it. Courtesy photo

Welfare of the horse is paramount. There are multiple veterinary checks along each course at which horses receive a soundness exam to ensure they are fit to continue. The SVAHA was founded in 1980 to promote Arabian horses in Eastern

Ontario as the choice for companion, show horse and elite athlete in all equine sport disciplines. Over the years, it has hosted Class A Arabian horse shows, open dressage competitions, clinics, seminars, competitive trail rides and endurance rides.

One last report from Dr. Menard at Olympics

The Russell Raiders OT8 squad remained perfect (11 wins and a tie) after a 2-1 win on Aug. 10 against Lusitania in Russell. The win ensures that the Raiders, who only have two games left, will finish first and win their league. Courtesy photo

OT8 Raiders clinch title RUSSELL— The soccer season is wrapping up quickly and for one Russell Raiders team they have already clinched their championship in the Ottawa Carleton Soccer League. The Men’s OT8 did so with a win this past week. The Women’s Rec. 2 team also inched closer to a championship as they won their third in a row and lead their league by four points with just a trio of games remaining. OT8 The Raiders OT8 squad officially became the league champions on Aug. 10 after beating Lusitania 3-1 in Russell. Lusitania scored first, but Robert Berthelotte tied it up from a free kick before half time. In the second half, the action was back and forth for a while until Lusitania hit the post on a penalty kick. From then on the pressure came mostly from Russell, and Rheal Clavette scored twice for the Raiders. After good defensive play, the Raiders managed to hang on for the win, 3-1. With just two games remaining no one can catch the Raiders who have 11 wins and a tie. The Raiders are in Perth to take on Perth Osprey Aug. 17. WR2 The Women’s Rec 2 squad made it three wins in a row when they beat the Spitfires,

in Russell, on Aug. 2. Samantha Carson had a huge game scoring three goals for the Raiders, while Stephanie Olney had the other. The team is in first with 27 points. This week, Aug. 16 they are in Ottawa to face the Golden Seals. Men’s Rec. Mathias Buhler’s two goals helped lead the Raiders Men’s Rec team to victory over the Sunset Lakers on Aug. 7 in Ottawa. Houssein Ayache and David Tessier also found the net as the Raiders shut out the Lakers 40. They currently sit in second place, behind the Lakers, in their league with 24 points, five back of first. They will need to win both of their remaining games and hope for some help from the Lakers to capture the championship. Last night, Aug. 14, they were home to the Nepean Hotspurs. WR1 It was a draw for the Women’s Rec. 1 squad on Aug. 13 when they took on the Rockland Dynamites. Brittany Neale, Shannon Kemp and Kelsey Benson each had a goal for the Raiders. With four games to play this season, the Raiders sit in third spot with 16 points. They are back in Russell on Aug. 20 to play host to the Gloucester Hornets.

OT3 The OT3 Raiders were in Chelsea on Aug. 10, but were undermanned from the get go. With only 10 men starting for the Raiders, it was going to be a tall task to walk away with any points against a Chelsea squad that had a few subs on their bench. Although outmanned, the game was fairly even after 45 minutes, but Chelsea was up 1-0 at the half. The fatigue and some injury took its toll on the already short-handed team. For a good portion of the second half, the Raiders played with nine, and then were down to eight for the better part of the final 20 minutes. Despite the effort by all the Raiders, Chelsea netted two more goals to finish with a 30 victory. The Raiders currently sit in seventh in the league standings. They will look to rebound Aug. 17 when they are home to OSU; kickoff is at 7 p.m. MR3 It was a tough loss for the MR3 team on Aug. 8 at the hands of the LACA Latinos in Russell. Danny Geneau scored the only goal for the Raiders as they fell 4-1. The loss puts the Raiders in 10th in the standings with three games to play. Tonight, Aug. 15, the Raiders are in Ottawa to face AC Fiorentina.

Darrell Menard Special to the Villager This will be my final commentary from London as my responsibilities at the 2012 Olympic Games came to an end on Aug. 7. This was somewhat earlier than expected but unfortunately the athletes I was medically responsible for did not advance as far as the team had expected. Four other members of our medical team also headed home before the closing ceremonies for the same reason. Leaving the games a few days early isn’t such a bad thing when you consider that I get to return to the greatest country on earth and live in a special community like Russell. For many of the athletes competing at the London games, when the

Olympic flame is finally extinguished, they will have to return to countries that are being torn apart by war, political instability, famine and many other devastating problems. with the Working Canadian Olympic Team has been an extraordinary experience and I am truly grateful to have had this opportunity. How often does one get the chance to live with and medically care for some of the greatest athletes on the planet? I will be coming home without any medals, no records and not even having had the opportunity to compete. What I will be coming home with is an amazing set of memories that will last my lifetime. I will never forget the incredible hospitality of the British people, the huge

crowds, the extensive security, the dedication and courage of our Canadian athletes, the medals won, the birth of new sporting legends, the swan songs of aging athletic legends, the professionalism of the support staff and the sheer enormity of the entire Olympic experience. The 2016 Olympics will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and right now there are young athletes all over the world who are training hard with the hope of representing their country at these games. We have several Olympians such as Greg Rokosh and Bill Morrison living in our community and who knows how many potential Olympians we have living amongst us. All it takes is talent, dedication and a whole lot of hard work.
