Two now seek Tory nod

On Wed., June 27, resident and volunteer extraordinaire Lindley McPhail, was presented the Ontario Senior of the Year award for Russell Township. The award, presented by Mayor J.P. St. Pierre, recognizes contributions made by an individual aged 65 or older and who has made their community a better place in which to live.

Senior honours for Lindley McPhail RUSSELL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took about 30 seconds to decide on a particular person for this award.â&#x20AC;? said Mayor J.P. St. Pierre, emcee at Lindley McPhailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ontario Senior of the Year of Russell Township reception held on June 27 at the Russell Curling Club.

Nominated by St. Pierre, with the help of Connie Johnston and Pegi Holtz, this award, part of the Ontario Honours and Awards Secretariat â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gives each municipality in Ontario the opportunity to honour one outstanding local Ontarian, who after the age of 65

has enriched the social, cultural or civic life of his or her community by contributing in many different fields, such as the arts, literature, community service, volunteerism, education, fitness and sport or humanitarian activities. Continued on page 2

GLENGARRY-PRESCOTTRUSSELL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Provincial Tories are obviously feeling their oats in the last truly rural riding held by the McGuinty Liberals judging by the fact that two contenders are vying for the chance to take on rookie incumbent Grit Grant Crack. Although a nomination date has yet to be set, Bourgetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jocelyn Ferguson and Maxvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roxanne Villeneuve-Roberston, daughter of former Tory agriculture minister Noble Villeneuve, have both come out as competitors for the Progressive Conservative nomination in Glengarry-PrescottRussell. The Eastern Ontario has been a traditional Liberal stronghold, though a waning one. In 2011, Grant Crack did not overwhelm then-PC candidate Marilissa Gosselin with a vote tally just 1,343 higher than hers. And the same riding fell into federal Conservative hands when MP Pierre Lemieux upended the Liberal legacy with his election to Ottawa in 2006. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been decades, said Gosselin, since local Tories have seen a contest for the nomination. Gosselin has endorsed Villeneuve-Robertson, saying she would be a great candidate and MPP for our riding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She understands the issues well and is an extremely hard worker. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud to support her, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be great, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to win.â&#x20AC;? Among other things, she has met with the Dump the Dump committee and stands with the people of our community against the dump, she said, referring to a


controversial waste recovery site proposed near the village of Russell. Meanwhile, Ferguson in a press release cited her own wealth of experience working in various municipal government capacities specializing in law enforcement and webmaster and information technology at the townships of North Plantagenet, Alfred, South Plantagenet and the Nation. She also highlighted her agricultural credentials, as the owner of a meat rabbit and dairy goat farm, and a founder of the Ontario Goat Farmers Co-op. Villeneuve-Robertson is the daughter of former Agriculture Minister and Francophone Affairs Minister Noble Villeneuve of Moose Creek. She grew up on a beef farm and currently works as the manager of La Fondation de lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Hopital Glengarry Memorial Hospital Foundation in Alexandria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing up on a beef farm I know full well the struggles farmers face, and the hard work we must do to put food on our tables. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I am committed to ensuring that the agricultural industry and rural issues are a top priority for an Ontario PC government,â&#x20AC;? said VilleneuveRobertson. The fact that two are vying for the candidate position is encouraging, observed Ferguson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the last few years we have had difficulty in attracting good candidates and usually it was the only candidate that obviously got the nod.â&#x20AC;?

Lindley McPhail honoured Continued from thh front Only municipalities, not the general public, can act as nominators for this award. ” And McPhail has certainly accomplished the feat of community enrichment through her many projects and partnerships. Attendees included Glengarry-Prescott-Russell MPP Grant Crack who presented McPhail with a GPR

commendation. St. Pierre presented McPhail with a Township of Russell Medal and a large bouquet of flowers created by Heidi Oescheger of the Russell Horticultural Society. Johnston and Holtz listed numerous organizations to which McPhail has been part of, and on which she spoke of in her acceptance speech to the large crowd of friends, family and fellow volunteers. They obviously enjoyed listening to McPhail as she humbly the awards, accepted humorously referring to her “Really how hard can it

Two seek Tory nod Firefighter K.Staal

Smoke alarm laws Since March 1, 2006 it has been law within the province of Ontario that all homes must have a working smoke alarm on each level and outside all sleeping areas. This portion of the Fire Code covers single family, semi-detached and town homes, whether owner-occupied or rented. It even applies to cottages and trailers. One key piece to the code that is often overlooked is the requirement of having a smoke alarm outside all sleeping areas. To create additional room homeowners often add sleeping quarters in the basements of their homes, remember that these rooms are now designated as a sleeping area and will require a smoke alarm. For rental properties it is the responsibility of the landlord to ensure that each dwelling complies with the law. However it is against the law for tenants of rental properties to remove the batteries or tamper with smoke alarms in anyway. Hard wired alarms or 10 year lithium battery models will ensure that smoke alarms in rental properties will remain compliant with legislation. A working smoke alarm is one that is installed as per the manufacturer s recommendations and is in good condition. A smoke alarm that has been painted or missing a cover is not considered a working smoke alarm . A smoke alarm must also be fastened permanently to a wall or ceiling, sitting a smoke alarm on a shelf is not considered installed . To ensure that smoke alarms are in working order they require some periodic maintenance; • Testing should be done each month • Batteries should be changed at least once a year. We recommend that this is done every 6 months, when the time changes • Vacuum the unit periodically • Smoke alarms of undetermined age or units over 10 years old should be replaced

Continued from the front She continued, ”This in turn produces excitement and gets people talking. After the last result I know that this riding is very winable for the Progressive Conservatives. And it should be, Gosselin pointed out, given Grant Crack’s decision to

speak and vote against proposed amendments to the OSPCA Act unpopular in rural areas, contained in a defeated PC private member’s bill. During the last provincial election campaign, Crack told farmers he would support changes to the OSPCA Act, according to Gosselin.

be?” sort of attitude, which has provided the drive behind many projects over her 20-year residency in Russell. In 2009, McPhail, was recognized by the Tri-Valley Conservation as a Voluntary Community Environmental Leader and has partnered with Dundas Healthy Homes, Naomi House, local schools, Russell Lions, Russell Legion and is CoChair of Rare Breeds Canada Eastern Ontario Chapter to name a few. As President of the Russell Horticultural Society, since 2003, McPhail has undertaken the role of fundraiser, and with ideas such as selling rain barrels, has helped in the creation of a Children’s Fantasy Garden at the Russell Library. She has

worked diligently through the growing pains of what started as a small living locally fair to one of over eighty vendors and 1400 attendees. Another example is of beautification MacDougall Park. From Art in the Park to weddings, the work and support which McPhail puts into all her endeavours is clear and will be longstanding reminders in the community of her determination and creativity. But in the end, McPhail was adamant of the fact, that she was only one of many in the community, who have shared their ideas, which inturn became visions and then realities. That it is the work with others which makes the community which we live in our home.

Farms growing, farmers aging says 2011 Agriculture Census Pamela Pearson Villager Staff O N TA R I O â&#x20AC;&#x201D; T h e number of farms has again dropped nationally, according to the 2011 Agricultural Census released the end of May. Canada had 205,730 census farms, a decrease of 10.3 per cent or 23,643 farms. Not surprisingly, the average size of a Canadian farm increased from 728 to 778 acres, a growth of 6.9 per cent. But less land overall was farmed in 2011 compared with 2006, with total hectares dropping 4.1 per cent in that period. Statistics also show that for the first time, the largest share of farm operators are 55 and over, now accounting for 48.3 per cent of farmers compared to 40.7 per cent in 2006 and 32.1 per cent in 1991. Ontario The provincial data for Ontario shows 51,950 farms, 5,126,653 hectares of farmland and 16,119 farm employees. Capital farm market-value of land, building, equipment and livestock totalled almost $85.7- billion in 2006. Total Ontario cropland equalled 3,613,821 hectares, and pasture land stood at 661,081 hectares. The top three cash crops in Ontario, based on

hectares, were soybean at close to a million, hay at 840,000 and grain corn at 822,465. There were no numbers for tobacco, but fall rye, canola and oats were all farmed at numbers under 40,000 hectares. Major fruit crops in hectares included grapes 7439, apples at 6406. Peaches dropped to 2612 and sweet cherries with 233 hectares. Other crops included strawberries, sour cherries, pears and plums and raspberries. Potatoes, sweet corn and tomatoes were the top three vegetable crops while asparagus, cucumbers, and cabbage fell under 1,500 hectares. There were 3,484 livestock farms of various types in Ontario last year. At the time of the census, they stocked 3.484 and included broiler and roaster poultry at 31.9-million roaster or broiler poultry; 13.2-million laying hens and pullets; and 3.48-million turkeys. Total cattle numbers stood at 1.74-million cattle; 3.09-million pigs, and 353,000 sheep and lambs. Farm incomes Ontario farms brought in total revenue of over $11 billion last year, but a net farm income of $600million. In terms of market receipts, dairy, corn and

vegetables - including greenhouses â&#x20AC;&#x201D; topped the commodity groups. The equipment on Ontario farms included 171,406 tractors; 14,282 combines; 28,916 balers, and over 30,000 farms reported computers for farm management. Eastern Ontario In Eastern Ontario, 8,180 hectares are rented or leased from the government and 124 farms reported crop-sharing close to 5,000 hectares of land. Irrigation is used by 363 reporting farms, with vegetable irrigation at the highest with 81 farms. One hundred and fifty seven farms reported using areas under glass, plastic or other protection in Eastern Ontario compared to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1,592 and close to 5,000 across Canada. In forest products, such as maple syrup, Eastern Ontario had 609 farms reporting, out of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2,673. Ontario as a whole placed over 1.5 million taps, out of 44 million taps in Canada. There were 774 farms with certified organic and/or transitional production in Ontario with field crops and hay as the predominant crop. An ongoing challenge

over.â&#x20AC;? Brisson felt that the courts were sending a subliminal message by responding almost exactly to the day and his response was a subliminal message of his own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if the Supreme Court of Canada refuses to listen to us, the sign stays,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have another way of going about it now in

court. So either way the municipality will have to deal with this sign in court.â&#x20AC;? Brisson said the Supreme Court will either hear him or it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it does hear us, we have a chance to win,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear us, then we will have to face the full repercussions of what this law in existence is going to be, in court.â&#x20AC;?

Campbell & Sabourin

for the agriculture sector is the need to keep the younger generation on the farm. According to migration trends from Statistics Canada, â&#x20AC;&#x153;rural areas have experienced a net reduction of young people under the age of 25. Furthermore, farm operators under the age of 35, as a percentage of total farmers, declined from 9.1 per cent in 2006 to 8.2 per cent last year.â&#x20AC;? Other highlights of the 2011 census report, which has been collecting and monitoring data since 1921, shows that Ontario continues to be the largest winter wheat area in the country. This province also accounts for the majority of ginseng production at over 95 per cent, leads in nursery and sod production. Ontario also realized a slight increase in no-till methods for preparing land for seeding but saw a decrease in conventional tillage.

The new sign at Embrun Radiator which violates the Township Bilingual sign bylaw.



Unilingual sign defies Township bilingual bylaw EMBRUN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Continuing with the protest of Russell townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bilingual sign bylaw, Jean-Serge Brisson erected his unilingual french language sign at his place of business over the Canada Day weekend. After the bylaw was passed in June of 2008, Brisson put up his unilingual sign in defiance of the bylaw. Last February, the sign was destroyed by high winds and Brisson had it taken down. Brisson was waiting for the Court of Appeals ruling before replacing the sign to see if the court would repeal the bylaw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It came out (the ruling), four years later, almost to the day (of the original bylaw passing), for the municipality,â&#x20AC;? said Brisson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, on July 1, I put up another sign, unilingual in french only.

EDITORIAL Adult crimes should bring adult consequences It’s like something out of a movie about troubled youth. In the past month, there have been some shocking stories in the news about young people. First, there was the story about the young girls in Ottawa who were luring other young girls into prostitution. Two of them were only 15, and one was 17. These girls used social media to contact at least three other girls between the ages of 13 and 17. They met the victims at one place and then brought them tR clients to perform sex acts. The most shocking part of this is that police believe the girls were acting alone. There was no adult behind this, just some teenage girls. The girls are now facing several charges including forcible confinement, human trafficking and sexual assault. Of course, due to their ages, they have not been identified. More recently, over Canada Day weekend, two girls from North Stormont, aged 16 and 18 have been charged with conspiracy in relation to the murder of a 24-year-old male in St. Isidore. These girls aren’t being named either. The youngest because of her age and the 18-year-old because her identity would identify the younger. They were arrested, along with three males, for the murder of Joey Faubert. Faubert’s body was found at a school in St. Isidore and while cause of death is being withheld at this time, it was obvious that the death was due to foul play. So here we have five girls, under the age of 18 that have committed horrible, very adult, crimes, yet we are not allowed to know who they are because they are young. Who is being protected here? Young girls who managed to lose so much of human decency that they could force others into performing sex acts on strangers or conspiring to commit the ultimate crime against another human being, murder, or is society being protected" For petty crimes, including theft of property or drug charges, an argument could be made to withhold names to protect the identity of young offenders. But these crimes are so heinous that not only should they be brought to justice in an adult court, they should be treated like an adult and society has the right to know who these girls are to protect LWVHOI Under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, the judge can allow the names to be published if there is reason to believe the young person is a danger to others. In this case, it can be argued that all of these girls pose a threat to others. They have all shown no regard for the safety or well being of others. What kind of person can take someone their own age and force them to do the things the Ottawa teens did? What kind of person can conspire to commit the murder of another human being? Wouldn’t you like to know if these girls are in your neighbourhood, talking to your child? Adult crimes call for adult consequences. Lois Ann Baker

Completing the circle Without a doubt, the most important intact heritage building in the core of Russell Village is the brick Registry Office at the corner of Castor and Concession streets. It’s a village landmark. Yes, there are a few other good brick buildings around town, including what some still know as the Campbell Block at the corner of Mill and Concession streets, and the old library building/Warner Store on Mill. But the soon-to-be-vacated Registry Office is the crowning jewel. Built in 1874 of three layers of Russell brick to serve all of Russell County, the original project cost $14,300…and that price included a second building at l’Orignal, seat for the United Counties of Prescott and Russell. The building’s durability was put to the test during the Great Russell Fire of 1915 that levelled much of the core. The slate roof of the Registry was destroyed as were buildings around it; however, the interior remained intact. The information is contained in “From Swamp and Shanty”, the Russell history book published in 1987 by the late Wendell Stanley. It’s got to be right because Wendell was a Russell reg-

istrar. If you’re still trying to wrap your head around the line “soon-to-be-vacated”, that’s okay because so am I. Somehow I missed the bit of news – if it was actually announced – that the government will be shutting the Registry and moving the operation to Russell Township Hall, site of a new provincial Service Centre. That brings up an announcement that I do remember seeing, that the Registry was in fact going to become the Service Centre and that all things provincial including the licensing bureau were going to relocate to it from Embrun. A hell of a ruckus was raised in Embrun and, sometime in the dead of night, the plan changed, placing the service centre in Embrun. The Embrun branch of the township library was tossed out of the municipal hall to make more room for the Service Centre. Come to think of it, maybe we got that brand spanking new library branch in Russell Village to keep us quiet about the slight of hand involving the Service Centre. Nary a peep has been raised by village residents about the Service Centre shuffle. However, for a new movement trying to secure

for the Registry the dignified future it deserves, this is all well and good. The movement, which hosted a meeting last night (July 3) at the Russell Community Sports Centre, would much rather see the building become a local hub than be used to hand out licenses and OHIP cards. You know this movement means business because its kingpins are Greg Rokosh and Connie Johnston, two of the hardest working volunteers in the township. When you have either name attached to a project, you assume it’s going to be a success. If both names are attached, it’s definitely a done deal. Rokosh and Johnston see the upcoming Registry Office closure as an opportunity rather than as a calamity, a chance to propose an alternate use that would take advantage of the location and its history. “It isn’t often that such an opportunity presents itself to a community,” Rokosh and Johnston said in an open letter to Russell arts and culture groups, and to Mayor Jean-Paul St. Pierre. “The right choice could benefit our town in a significant way for many years to come.” The intention out of last night’s meeting was to strike

Hydro attacks Forced Road One of the most picturesque streets of Russell was besieged by Hydro One when crews decided it was time to cut trees away from Hydro lines. Homeowners were at least pre-notified this time but the letter also indicated that Garlon RTU would be sprayed into the tree stumps to get rid of any undesirable vegetation. I do have an issue of their definition of “undesirable vegetation” as was the case on the nature trail when it was stripped of all vegetation on the north side of the trail between Eadie Rd. and Concession St. last September. In that particular incident, residents were not warned, and while there seems to be a miscommunication of whether Township was aware or not, Hydro indicates that Township was aware that

they were planning on spraying Garlon RTU. This issue came to the attention of the Environmental Advisory Committee and it was stated that “there should be absolutely no spraying on the nature trail” which is used daily by families. There certainly was not the spot spraying that was indicated and all vegetation was sprayed including desirables such as ferns, berry bushes (which birds love), pussy willow, cattails, wild flowers, milkweed and many other plants that attract butterflies, bees and birds, not to mention the effects this product has on frogs which were in the ditch. These plants would never have affected hydro lines. Also, most residents did not realize that you can refuse the spray option on

a voluntary working group with the task of developing a plan to present to the provincial government. In a nutshell, Rokosh wants to do for Russell arts and culture at the Registry Office what he and others did for sports and recreation at the centre located behind Russell High School. He enlisted Johnston for her dogged determination to get things done which improve the community and the people who reside within it. Russell Township is a hotbed of artists, craftspeople, actors, singers, and musicians without a meeting and show place to call theLU own at the west end of the municipality. The EPbrun side is well served by La maison des arts. The Registry 2ffice is composed of the original front part and a brick addition added to the rear in 1979. Rokosh sees the complex containing a small theatre for plays and shows, an art gallery, and work and office spaces for the various creative groups around town. A former Olympic athlete, Rokosh is also a noted artist who helped establish a very popular annual art show in Russell 25 years ago. In his mind, Russell has a viable sports centre and only needs an arts centre to complete the circle.

your property. The way the letter was worded, it did not seem to be a choice. Garlon is extremely toxic to aquatic animals and toxic to birds. One resident indicated that they have found three dead birds on the trail. Garlon also does not break down easily and stays in the soil. The Material Safety Data Sheet also indicates that it can cause reproductive problems and is a skin irritant. Applicators should remove all clothing after spraying. Hydro indicated they were not aware of the label. What is any pesticide applicator doing spraying a product that they are not aware of? This was always an issue I had with lawn applicators; most of them had no idea what they were using. There should have been pre-notification by signage and there is a discrepancy about that too.

What does God have to say about your life? The Holy bible speaks to us about Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing grace and reveals His love and mercy to those who seek to know Him through the Lord Jesus Christ. We of the Russell Reformed Presbyterian Church have witnessed Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grace in our own lives and would like you to be blessed to know His love too. If you would like a study bible to read on your own, the Russell Reformed Presbyterian Church would like to give Ç&#x2021;ŽƾŽŜÄ&#x17E;Í&#x2DC;WĹŻÄ&#x17E;Ä&#x201A;Ć?Ä&#x17E;Ä?ŽŜĆ&#x161;Ä&#x201A;Ä?Ć&#x161;Í&#x2022;WÄ&#x201A;Ć?Ć&#x161;Ĺ˝Ć&#x152;DÄ&#x201A;ĆŠĹ&#x161;Ä&#x17E;Ç  Kingswood at 613-445-1937, if you are interested in a free copy.

Forced Road under siege Continued from page 4 Hydro stated that 25 signs were erected along the trail but all the people that frequent that trail know this was not the case. Garlon RTU is for woody vegetation and was used for Hydro right of ways in forested areas. The restriction on the label reads: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do not use this product as a broadcast foliar spray in residential areas. Residential is defined as sites where bystanders, including children, may be potentially exposed during or after spraying. This includes around homes, schools, parks, playgrounds, playing fields, public buildings or any areas where the general public, including children, could be exposed.â&#x20AC;? One resident put up signs indicating â&#x20AC;&#x153;no sprayingâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;leave our trees aloneâ&#x20AC;?. Some residents were not aware that they could refuse the spraying but not the cutting, but I still think sometimes they are brutal and just cut the tree down when it could be saved. The trail spraying was certainly near residents, playing fields, and parklands and why would Hydro even suggest using it on someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front lawn where most wells are, where children and pets play? I understand that trees can cause havoc for Hydro lines but they can be trimmed with dignity and not chopped to the ground. Forced Rd. is one of the few streets in Russell with beautiful shade trees and when visitors come to Russell that is the street where they â&#x20AC;&#x153;ooh and aah.â&#x20AC;? The old trees of this street deserve to be saved and thankfully, the residents of Forced Rd. have banded together and are fighting for their trees and a â&#x20AC;&#x153;no sprayâ&#x20AC;? policy. Kudos to you all!


Please join me at my OPEN HOUSE at 231 MACDOUGALL ST., RUSSELL SUNDAY, JULY 8TH FROM 2 - 4 P.M. I look forward to seeing you there!


 Private citizens can take action to preserve both their health and their surroundings.

Report to the Community


t’s hard to believe that the new Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) opened just three years ago – providing a brand new facility with expanded services. From the new Emergency Department, to the birthing rooms, to the latest CT Scanner, WDMH became the most technically advanced health care facility in rural Ontario. But we haven’t stopped there.

We continue to expand the care we provide to local communities, working with our health care partners. For example: ■

In this Report to the Community, we are pleased to share some of the accomplishments of the past year, and to provide an update on where we are going. At WDMH, we are fortunate to have a stellar team of staff members, doctors and volunteers who put our patients and their families first every day. They combine the latest technology and expertise with the human touch that WDMH is known for - providing quality care close to home.

All of WDMH’s chemotherapy nurses are now certified through the respected de Souza Institute and are recognized for their advanced cancer care nursing knowledge and skills. This year, we also introduced ISAAC, an online computer tool to help cancer patients assess their symptoms and take control of their own health.

WDMH’s teaching programs continue to grow, as we educate the next generation of healthcare professionals. In fact, close to 200 students- ranging from paramedics to physiotherapy assistants - spent time at WDMH last year. We also welcomed two new family medicine residents who will practice full-time at WDMH for the next two years . Many of these students turn their educational opportunity into a career in Winchester. In the last six years, 62 graduates have been hired following their placement at WDMH.

664 babies took their first breath at WDMH, in a comfortable, home-like setting. The Childbirth Program includes family physicians, midwives, specialists and nurses who offer full service care with 24/7 pain management.

The results speak for themselves. Here are just a few highlights: ■

Quality improvement is an ongoing priority at WDMH as we focus on safety and patient-centred care. Last year, we were pleased to meet our goals focusing on hand hygiene, wait times, length of stay and the time it takes to receive pain medication. The latest patient satisfaction report shows that the overall satisfaction for medical, surgical and day surgery patients is 100%– making WDMH the highest performer in Ontario. Both maternity and emergency patients were also pleased with their care, at 94% and 83% satisfaction respectively. It’s a team effort and we will continue to look for ways to do even better in the future.

As a satellite site for chemotherapy and dialysis, we provide timely and supportive care right here in Winchester. Our unique Breast Care Program supports women by providing proper assessment, accurate information and prompt follow-up to any concerns.

Our inpatient and day surgery programs are growing as we work with specialists from Ottawa to bring care close to home.

WDMH’s busy Diagnostic Imaging department recently received its first accreditation for Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD) testing. This voluntary process includes a rigorous analysis of staff performance and quality measures.

DMH’s plans focus on services close to home and partnerships to build upon the care we provide. We call it The Centre of Excellence for Rural Health and Education – an innovative way to address the changing demands of the current health care system and the needs of our local communities.

The Centre envisions a local system concept that brings together health care and community partners. Together, we are creating a local health system to shape our future – and care for the families around us.

Acute Hospital Care – WDMH is a community teaching hospital serving 90,000 residents.

Seniors’ Care – Our focus on seniors’ care includes an innovative Complex Continuing Care program and the integration of Dundas Manor.

Physician Care – Family medicine is the core physician workforce at WDMH with 30 family physicians and midwives. An additional 35 specialists provide additional ambulatory care and surgical services.

Community Care - Early next year, we will welcome our newest partners in the new Community Care Building now under construction: Eastern Ontario Health Unit; Champlain Community Care Access Centre; Ontario Early Years Program and Job Zone d’emploi.

Education and Research – WDMH was the first rural teaching hospital to host a two-year family residency program, and has affiliations with 13 universities and colleges.

Technology – Technology offers the potential to further improve collaboration.

Together, we are creating a local health care system to shape our future – and care for the families around us. Please visit our web site at for more details. We also want to hear from you. If you would like to provide comments or suggestions about hospital services, please contact Cholly Boland, President and CEO, at 613.774.1049 or by email at

Your Health – Right Here! 11,787 Hours We are here for our local communities – from and Counting childbirth to seniors’ care. We are a site for cancer care, dialysis and cataract services, and offer specialty clinics with visiting specialists from Ottawa hospitals. Speak to your family doctor about receiving care close to home at WDMH. Emergency (24/7 services) Cardiac Services

Last year, WDMH’s more than 160 Auxiliary volunteers provided 11,787 hours of service in almost every area of the hospital. Our volunteers lend a helping hand and provide a comforting smile to everyone who comes through our doors.

We can’t thank them enough.

A Lasting Legacy Four loved ones lost. Four lives impacted, in some way by WDMH. Four people who decided to identify the Foundation as a beneficiary in their estate. This kind of decision requires preparation and planning, so you can imagine how touched we were that these community members remembered the WDMH Foundation in their wills this past year. Estate gifts are close to the heart, so we know that these individuals had wonderful intentions and followed through, becoming philanthropic leaders. As we cannot thank them personally, our thoughts go out to their loved ones. These gifts will have a lasting impact at WDMH, just as these people left a legacy with every heart they touched.

For more information about the Foundation’s Legacy Program, please visit foundation or give us a call at 613-774-2422 x 6161.

Tunes and tea On June 23 the first annual Victorian Afternoon Tea and Garden Party was held, in Morewood, by the Friends for Life Team to raise funds for breast cancer. Eighty-five guests enjoyed many delightful homemade sandwiches and baked goods accompanied by the local talented singer Camille Beauchamp, as seen here being enjoyed by one guest Barbra Agar. Almost $2,000 raised to benefit the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

A pair of Russell Raiders teams atop the standings in the Ottawa Carleton Soccer League RUSSELL-Two Russell teams now top standings in their respective leagues after this past week’s action in the Ottawa Carleton Soccer League. The OT8 Raiders may not have won, but their tie still keeps them alone in first, while the WR2 team won to move into a tie for first. WR2 Elsa Hergel led the WR2 Raiders to victory with a pair of goals in the team’s 2-1 win over the Cumberland Cobras on June 28 in Cumberland. The win helped the Raiders move into a tie for top spot in their league with Golden Seals. The Raiders hit the pitch again on July 5 in Ottawa against OSU. OT8 The OT8 Raiders win-

ning streak was snapped on June 29, in Russell, at the hands of the Perth Osprey. Luckily for the Raiders, their unbeaten streak remains intact as they came away with a 22 draw. Colin Baird and Mark VanDusen scored the markers for the Raiders. Even with the tie, the Raiders remain in top spot in their league, but only have a one-point cushion on second place. They play July 6 in Chelsea against the Soccer Chelsea Ocelots. OT3 The OT3 Raiders broke out of their two-game slide by pulling off a big win over AC 4-1 Fiorentina on June 29 in Ottawa. Christopher Tuck picked up a pair of goals for the Raiders, Robert Milinkovich and David

Hatherall had the others. The Raiders moved up to fifth in the standings with the win. They play host to the Lynwood Chargers on July 6 in Russell; kickoff is at 7 p.m. Men’s Rec. The Russell Raiders Men’s Rec. team returned to a familiar result on June 26 as they battled the Ottawa Valley Brewers to a 1-1 draw in Ottawa. Ryan Raven scored the lone goal for the Raiders who are now fifth in their league. Their next action came last night as they hosted the Fusion at the Russell Community and Sports Centre. MR3 The Men’s Rec. 3 Raiders got a two-goal night from Alexander Dyer and another from Sean Mullen and managed

a 3-3 draw against Lynwood, CNB United on June 27 in Russell. The single point was still needed for the Raiders who now sit 10th in their league table. Their next game will be later tonight in Gloucester against the Gloucester Hornets. WR1 The Women’s Rec. 1 Raiders failed to build on their momentum from a win a couple weeks ago. They got three goals from Brittany Neale, Sarah and Leduc-Gaudet Melanie Miller on June 25 against the Ottawa Raiders in Russell, but it was not enough as they fell 5-3. They are currently fifth in the standings. Their next match is 9 in Ottawa against those same Ottawa Raiders.

Two-goal performance!

Christopher Tuck had a great game for the Russell Raiders OT3’s as they beat AC Fiorentina on June 29 in ottawa 4-1. Tuck had a pair of goals as the Raiders snapped their two game slide. Matte photo

St. Albert’s Benoit returns to Senators after year in KHL OTTAWA--After a year in the Russian KHL, St. Albert’s Andre Benoit reached an agreement to return to North America by signing with the Ottawa Senators organization. Sources are saying that the contract is a one-year deal worth $650,000. The move addresses the Senators need for a veteran presence on their blue line in Binghamton. The 28-year-old Benoit is a very well travelled player spending time in the NHL, KHL, AHL, SMliiga (Finland) and SEL (Sweden). Benoit Also represented Canada at the 2007 Spengler Cup in Davos Switzerland, which Canada won. In 2010-11, Benoit finally saw his first NHL action when he was called up by the Senators. He played eight games, registered one assist, six penalty minutes and a -1 rating. Before his professional carrer, Benoit was part of the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League, Benoit played

five seasons with the Rangers from 2000 to 2005. He was part of the 2003 team that not only won the OHL Championship, but went on to capture the Memorial Cup that was held in Quebec City. Benoit showed tremendous promise as an offensive defenseman in junior, registering 99 goals, 200 assists for 299 points in five seasons. Benoit was a two-time OHL All Star, won the Most Gentlemanly Player and Overage Player of the Year. Despite his junior numbers, he first signed with the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs, the affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, as an undrafted player. During his two seasons with the Bulldogs, Benoit put up 57 points and in 2007, he was part of the Bulldogs team that captured the AHL Championship Calder Cup. Last season, Benoit signed a one-year deal

New used jerseys for all!

Every year at registration the Russell Soccer Club collects old uniforms to be given away to needy organizations. This year the children in Tegucigalpa, Honduras were the recipients thanks to a suggestion by Russell Sports and Youth Centre President Mark Lalonde. The children are seen here with the jerseys on, ready to play. Photos courtesy Mark Lalonde

with Spartak Moscow in the KHL. He appeared in 53 games with the club, scored five goals, 11 assists and registered 34 penalty minutes. Spartak Moscow failed to make the playoffs, finishing sixpoints back, in ninth place. Benoit will go to the team where he had his best individual season, 2010-11 with Binghamton was his best as a professional; he scored 11 goals, 44 assists for 55 points.
