Cash injection will help with backup Pamela Pearson Villager Editor EMBRUN — GlengarryPrescott-Russell MPP Grant Crack welcomed Minister of Infrastructure and Minister of Transportation Glen Murray to the Russell Municipal office on June 18, where Murray announced to area Mayors that five townships would be receiving $5.2-million of the provinces $90-million set aside to help Ontario municipalities build and maintain critical infrastructure assets. “The new Ontario government is committed to working with municipalities, especially our rural partners, to help make critical infrastructure investments that will help strengthen our communities across the province.’ stated

Murray.  “Through the Municipal Infrastructure Strategy, we are ensuring that the right investments are made at the right time.� Russell Township has been allocated $437,164 for waste water and the replacement of old and failing sewers. “Without this very important Provincial contribution, the Township would have been unable to undertake this top priority project, as identified in our asset management analysis, on such a short term,� said Mayor St. Pierre.

Golfing Fore a Cure brings proceeds closer to home Pamela Pearson Villager Editor OTTAWA — The 2013 edition of the Plowing Fore a Cure Legacy Golf Tournament, held this year in memory of Cumberland farmer and active community volunteer David “Finster� Findlay, raised unofficially $36,000 for the Winchester and District Memorial Hospital Foundation. In the past, proceeds of

$500,000 which included matching funds programs, went to The Ottawa Hospital Foundation and its cancer centre.   Held on June 19 at Anderson Links Golf and Country Club in Ottawa, this year’s tournament had 118 players and an additional 40 plus for dinner. Some of Findlay’s family members were on the course—sons-in-law Theo Van Munstern and Brent

Payne and grandson Hayden Payne.   Tracy and Tammie Smith, daughters of Tom Smith, who the tournament paid tribute in 2012, volunteered this year, as did many other tournament veterans’ including Wendy Goodfellow, Anita Geymont and cart driver extraordinaire Gib Patterson. The day started with a shotgun start at noon, fol-

lowed by a banquet, live auction and presentations. A silent auction over 60 great items was open throughout the day. Celebrity radio host and owner of Y101 Boot Scooters, Mark Papousek, not only played in the tournament with his team made up of Gerald Laplante and Glen and Craig Armstrong, but also emceed the event.

Summer safety Summer has finally arrived, after an unusually wet spring we are now getting a taste of the good weather we have all been waiting for. Another sign of summer is the rate at which the grass is growing, it seems most people are mowing their lawns at least twice each week right now. If it isn’t raining you are certain to hear the hum of multiple mowers running each evening. powered Gasoline tools do pose certain dangers that people need to be mindful of. Unlike vehicles most of us use portable gas containers to refuel these tools but storage of these containers is a major problem in many homes. How many times have you seen people with gasoline containers stored in garages that are a part of the home? The department can not stress strongly enough that this is a practice that must be stopped. Gasoline containers should be stored in outdoor sheds with sufficient ventilation. A build up of gasoline vapours can create an explosive atmosphere in a very short time if the conditions allow. Another concern is refuelling, when refuelling our vehicles at gas stations it is very apparent by the signage posted that smoking is not allowed,. This also applies to refuelling gas-powered tools at home. Personal protection is another area that

many people don’t consider when mowing their lawns. When using a lawn mower work boots should always be worn. It can happen in an instant: a small stumble or just tripping over something in the garden can put your feet underneath the whirling blades of the mower. Sandals and running shoes are simply no match compared to the steel blades of a lawn mower. One last concern with lawn mowers is the safety of the people around you. When mowing the lawn be sure that people are at a safe distance so that nothing can be propelled by the blades thus injuring someone nearby. One other safety concern that has come to our attention is the danger posed by leaving aerosol cans in vehicles during the heat of summer. Whether it be a lubricant, insect repellant or any other product that is pressurized you might want to reconsider this during the warm weather months. There have been cases reported where aerosol cans have exploded due to the build-up of heat within the vehicle. In most of these cases the can was left in direct sunlight so the heat build up was very severe, but why take the chance. If you do have aerosol products in your vehicle at the very least put them in the trunk or better yet remove them altogether.

Officially off to high school Next fall, this group of Russell High School Grade 8 students will officially pass through the school’s doors to the other side — from elementary life into high school with great anticipation. PJ Pearson Photo

Infrastructure Continued from the front “This revitalization project will insure the substantiability of our road infrastructure as well as the street storm sewer in the village core of Russell.” Some residents of Concession Street will be glad to have the sewer system revamped, as occasionally basements have been flooded due to backup. Township noted that by replacing the storm sewer it will “provide substantiability to the road infrastructure and alleviate risks associated with an outdated infrastructure which could generate irregular levels of water retention and potentially result in structural concerns with surrounding buildings such as homes, businesses and institutional and municipal facilities as an example. Furthermore, it would definitely minimize the potential health and/or safety concerns of our residents. “ Chief Administration Officer Jean Leduc has stated that the $1.2-million storm sewer project, which

will replace 800 metres of pipe and appurtenances, could begin as early as this fall —township is just waiting on approval from the

Ministry of Environment in respect to design of the project. “Once the design is approved, tenders will be sent out. We hope to com-

plete the project by winter, but depending on how long the ministry takes, start dates could be pushed off until spring.” said Leduc. The construction will affect traffic flow, coming in and out of the village, for at least three to four months — from the Concession Street bridge, north to the Russell Library. North Glengarry and Hawkesbury also received funds to assist with waste water rehabilitation and repairs to sanitary sewage collection system and separation of sanitary and storm sewers, which includes the reconstruction of roads to meet existing and new traffic demands. The Township of Alfred and Plantagenet and East Hawkesbury received money for road and bridge projects. Crack congratulated the township councils for all the hard work they do stating, “The province of Ontario is proud to work in partnership with our municipal leaders to maintain and rebuild infrastructure that is so important to the economic prosperity and well-being of Eastern Ontario.”

Hospital to get cancer bio-safety cabinet Continued from the front Co-Chair Sharen Armstrong, who has been with the tournament since conception, stated that it could not have been carried off without all the wonderful sponsors and donations, including a large Bucket of Booze supplied by the Plow Fore A Cure committee and the Ontario Queen of the Furrow Sarah Little — Osgoode Ward councillor, Doug Thompson was the winner of that live auction item. Presenting sponsor of the tournament was PureLogicIT, followed by silver sponsor Campbell and Moore Insurance Brokers Ltd, Bronze sponsors Wilmarvale Elevators Ltd, Carleton Corner Farms and RBC Royal Bank who sponsored a $10,000 hole in one, sadly without a winner. Each hole was sponsored and challenged all players with traditional golfing contests. Winners included: Closest To The Pin male and female- Brent Tower Nicole Clement; and Longest Drive male and female - Bryan Dewar and Edith Bowman; Low-Net Foursome winners was Brian Mann, team Benjamin Mann, Chris

Schouten and Andrew Robertson; and the Most Honest Foursome was Martin Besner, Robert Hamilton, Bill Koggel, and Ed Beimers. Yvon Proulx won a 32” television after winning the Chipping Contest (sponsored by Russell Meadows Retirement Community) where, for a small fee, players would try to chip large marshmallows into a cooler. Five holes boasted extra bonus prizes including a four night golf vacation for two at a selected Fairmount Inn, for any hole in ones’, but sadly no winner was to be had. However the winner of the signed Matt Carker t-shirt and walking stick, donated by the WDMHF, was Martin Besner. The foundation will put the proceeds towards purchasing a new pharmacy bio-safety cabinet with a price tag of $40,000, “The cabinet is an important part of our cancer care program.   It is an enclosed, ventilated workspace used to mix chemotherapy medications. There is a need to protect staff, the drugs, and the environment from exposure to biohazards and cross contamination during this

preparation. The new BSC is designed to meet specific needs of the workplace and provide the widest margin of safety and protection under demanding   conditions.” says the Foundation. Christina Enright, Manager of Community Engagement for the Foundation, was on hand visiting every hole — camera in hand. She told The Villager, “As the Events contact for the Foundation, it was an absolute pleasure to work with the Plowing Fore A Cure committee – everything was extremely well organized, and the tournament participants seemed to really enjoy themselves.” Enright continued that the organizing committee was very committed to the event’s success, both for the tournament participants as well as for the overall goal: to raise enough funds to purchase a new bio-safety cabinet for WDMH. Fund Development Associate Chelsea McIntyre of the WDMHF was a participant, along team members with WDMH Chief Executive Officer Cholly Boland and two board members. “I was very impressed with the

consideration paid to the small things at the tournament,” said McIntyre “like the golf bag valet that took your clubs to your cart for you and the owners of the course also drove around that day, offering up sunscreen and water to players, as it was a beautiful, sunny day.”

McIntyre concluded that all had a wonderful time, and were very honoured that this dedicated group of volunteers were so passionate about making a difference at their local hospital.   “Everyone was in good spirits and seemed to be enjoying the various games and food offered at the

tournament.   The overwhelming community response, including players, sponsors and volunteers, meant that the group was able to raise a lot of money towards a new cabinet. This kind of support is so wonderful to see from our friends and neighbours.”

Driving hot on OPP’s radar this Canada Day RUSSELL — In the week of June 17 to June 24 Russell County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to 257 occurrences. Among those occurrences were 14 alarms, 11 collisions, and five domestics, resulting in 26 persons were charged with various offences.

Theft CASSELMAN — OPP Constable Michel Corbeil responded to a theft incident on Laval Street in Casselman on June 23 where it was discovered that during the night unknown person(s) stole a 17 foot canoe, described as purple in colour with a white interior and black and grey nylon seats. The caller did not see or hear anything suspicious during the night.

Anyone who might have any information on this theft is asked to contact OPP Constable Michel Corbeil at the OPP Rockland office at or by contacting Crime Stoppers.

Aggressive driving be on the watch. With people getting set for what is traditionally one of the busiest long weekends of the year, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is also gearing up for a busy weekend on Ontario roads, trails and waterways this Canada Day Long weekend.     In particular, the OPP will be keeping a close eye out for people who display aggressive driving behaviour, whether in a motor vehicle,

boat or all-terrain vehicle. This includes following vehicles too closely, improper lane changes, weaving in and out of lanes and a general disregard for traffic laws — all forms of aggressive and dangerous driving behaviour that put all road users at risk.    “People are finally getting the message that they themselves play a far greater role in keeping everyone safe than the OPP does. We may be seeing the results of this positive attitude shift reflected in our fatality statistics this year, with the number of deaths on roads, waterways and trails we police at 110 compared to 173 this time last year,” said Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey, Provincial

Commander, Traffic Safety and Operational Support. “We want to see this positive trend continue and one way to make this happen is to have everyone become our number one safety partner and to make road, boating and trail safety the same top priority as we do over busy long weekends and throughout the year at the OPP,” said Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander, OPP Highway Safety Division. The OPP will continue to also watch for seat belt compliance; distracted driving; impaired while driving, boating or off-roading; compliance with Move Over laws; and use of boating safety equipment such as Personal Floatation Devices (PFD).

Development of biogas businesses in Ontario

To Editor, As a resident of Nepean-Carleton who is concerned with our local economy and environmental footprint, I was pleased to hear that MPP Bob Chiarelli toured Carleton Corner Farms. Carleton Corner Farms is much more than a dairy and crop farm. Since 2012, this farm has participated in Ontario’s clean energy feed-in-tariff (FIT) program by producing green energy through biogas technology. Biogas uses the farm’s organic material and transforms it into useable energy. Carleton Corner Farm’s biogas facility produces enough energy to power 400 homes and provides the farm owners with a steady revenue stream. It keeps organic waste from being dumped in landfills—even local restaurants have been donating their grease to be broken down into biogas. The success of this farm demonstrates the direction that our Province needs to continue taking. Government policies must have a real economic benefit while, at the same time, be environmentally progressive. Biogas is precisely the sort of fuel source the Province of Ontario must work with citizens to develop if we are to be competitive in the energy industry for years to come. The proof is in the economic benefit that investing in biogas brings. Brian Burnett, who owns Carleton Corner Farms with his wife Tracie, told the Biogas Association that his farm’s investment in biogas has contributed $1.5-million to the local economy, and has sparked new opportunities for partnership with restaurants around the area. Creating economic opportunity and community collaboration where previously there werenone—this is the spirit of innovation that Ontarians need to pursue if younger generations are to be able to find prosperous industries to work in once they graduate from their studies. It is for these reasons that I am discouraged that our local member, MPP Lisa MacLeod is unwilling to see the benefits of energy policies right in her own community. MPP Lisa MacLeod recently voted with the Ontario PC Party to attempt to terminate the FIT program. The Ontario PC Party’s attitude and record concerning renewable energy is suspect at best. Why? Because like their federal counterparts, the Ontario PC Party does not believe in the overwhelming amount of evidence that points to climate change as being a real and long-term threat to the livelihood of future generations, like my own. As a young member of our community, I feel that this attitude is irresponsible to future generations, who desire both a healthy environment to live in, and careers in innovative industries that make use of the advanced skills that they learn throughout the period of their studies in some form of post-secondary education. This type of short-sighted partisanship is doing our community an injustice. We need to demand more from our local representative, MPP Lisa MacLeod. The negative, reactionary indignation that the Ontario PC Party has demonstrated in light of significant scientific evidence pointing to renewable energy sources as our future amid the reality of climate change is having an unquestionably negative impact on the Province’s future generations. I believe it is time for the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party to put to bed the notion that they have more complete insight in the fields relating to environmental science than do the professionals.

Riding high Professional rodeos continue to penetrate the Eastern Ontario landscape in leaps and bounds, with the latest one bucking into business this summer in Glengarry County. It’s the Alexandria Western Rodeo Aug. 24-25 taking place on McCormick Road near the local airport. Many beloved rodeo attractions will be presented including bull and bareback riding, steer wrestling, ladies barrel racing, and team roping. A few unusual features will also be offered, such as the Quebec Mounted Shooting Association. And what would a good ol’ rodeo be without some good ol’ country music. Organizers of the Alexandria show have lined up Fresh Horses, a Garth Brooks tribute act. On the downside, while we’re gaining one rodeo, we seem to have lost one. I can’t find any sign of a 2013 Upper Canada Rodeo on the Internet, a production that spent two seasons in Chesterville before high-tailing it to Lombardy for the 2012 edition. No rodeo is booked into the Lombardy fairgrounds in 2013. If any of you cowpokes out there know anything about the fate or future of the Upper Canada Rodeo, please let me know. Because as a

means of drawing tourists to rural communities, there’s no such thing as too many rodeos, at least not in our neck of the woods; I hate to see one bite the dust. The significance of annual gatherings featuring western style sports and games has been underscored lately by the fate of the granddaddy of them all, the Calgary Stampede, in limbo at least for the time being because of record flooding in that city. It’s a chance for offshoot rodeos across the land to carry the torch while Calgary gets back on its feet. Riding back into town for a second edition is the Spencerville Stampede July 27-28 at the local fairgrounds. Initiated by the Beking egg farming family and produced by A Bar K Rodeo under the sponsorship of New Holland, the first outing of this event received rave reviews and the Bekings earned silver stars for their efforts. They even signed up Egg Farmers of Ontario to help them get crackin’ on the project. There’s a charitable component to the Spencerville show, with part of the proceeds going to the Rotary Club of Kemptville and part to Food For All food banks of Spencerville, Cardinal and Prescott. Helping good causes is a nice touch, something Russell’s own segment of the Rawhide Rodeo tour will do July 13 at the fairgrounds, Special Olympics Ontario and the Law Enforcement Torch Run being the designated

EDITORIAL Be prepared Montreal is looking for a new leader now that the mayor has been arrested on corruption charges and stepped down from his post. And who can forget all the problems that Toronto is having with their mayor, Rob Ford. Ford has been in the headlines almost every day with one scandal after another. Provincially the dust is just starting to settle on the fiasco that was Dalton McGuinty’s leadership. These are all good examples of bad leadership, and unfortunately we only have ourselves to blame. We voted these guys in, after all. Every four years we get the opportunity to voice our

opinion on how we want our towns, municipalities and provinces to be run. New candidates we have to take at face value, but what about the ones that are running that are already in office. Every voter should go to a few council meetings in their municipality or city to see for themselves which candidates are worthy of reelection and which ones should be booted out. It is around the council table where the important issues are raised that affect us all are discussed, dissected, discussed again and voted on. It is during those discussions that residents can see their councillors and mayors at work doing what they have been hired to do, running our municipalities the way we

recipients. Comprising 90,000 nearly police representatives in more than 35 countries, the torch run is the primary communitybased fundraising initiative for the Special Olympics. While I’m on the good cause point and considering the leadership role of the Calgary Stampede, Eastern Ontario rodeo organizers might think about passing the ten-gallon hat for Alberta flood victims. Yes, yes, I know those Albertans are rolling in dough but when you’re down for the count every little show of support helps. While Russell Stampede Day proper doesn’t tear out of the gate until 6 p.m., other activities get underway at 12 noon with a “Bigger, Better, Louder, Shinier” big rig Show & Shine displaying some 100 machines, along with a 4 x 4 stock truck pull. It’s a great combo because nothing goes better with buckin’ broncs than Honkin’ big trucks… and beer! I wonder if there’s room for my 1999 Ford 150 sixcylinder extended cab with a long box and about six rust holes in the body at either the S & S or the pull? Oh!… you say the S & S trucks are much bigger and much easier on the eye than my piece of crap that couldn’t pull its way out of a wet paper bag, so forget about it! Fine! So this is one place expect them to run. It’s hard to decide on a candidate that you haven’t seen in action and all you have to go on are campaign promises and pretty speeches. The media usually only reports on the outcome of an issue raised at these meetings and by attending just a few meetings you can see what the process is and where each candidate stands on the issues. Just because a motion is passed, does not mean everyone around the council table agrees. There are often issues that get passed by one vote and the discussions surrounding those issues are how you can see where the elected official stands and why. You can also see which candidates tend to sit on the fence or are after their own agenda and don’t have the municipality’s best interests at heart. We are due for a

where size and no rust do matter? I see where Chris Griffith (613-223-5350) is the contact guy for the S & S so for sure we’ll be seeing some Griffith Cartage equipment on parade all prettied up for the day. And Lyndon Donnelly (613-2292149) is handling the truck pull but I don’t think he’s got anything of his own to enter… although he certainly has a better truck than I do. The main local rodeo contact is Steve Fisher at 613821-1657. It’s all sponsored by the Russell Agricultural Society that also brings us the annual Russell Fair, Ladies Night and Canada Day celebrations July 1. As in past extreme rodeos in Russell, top hands from four countries (Canada, U.S., Brazil and Mexico) will compete for championship points and prize money in bull riding, barrel racing, along with saddle bronc and bareback riding. Starting at 9 p.m. in the Curling Club, the good ol’ music will be supplied by good ol’ D.W. James. Other attractions include the rodeo clown who probably also drives a better truck than I do. municipal election in the coming year, so take this as a reminder to go out to those council meetings and see how the councillors really feel on the issues that affect us all. Because remember, once they are elected to office, there is little we can do until the next election and a lot of damage can be done in four years. Lois Ann Baker

personality Steve Madely who recently lost his wife to cancer. Madely is host of the stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weekday morning show Madely in the Morning. During the hour long evening program, listeners pledged over $5,500, which will go directly to the quiltmaking program. of which Russell has its own chapter and meets weekly at St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church to make quilts for local recipients. Every April at the Friends for Life Breakfast, in Embrun (which also rais-

es money for the battle against breast cancer) the Russell quilters are recognized for their continuing efforts to provide warmth, and love, to cancer patients. President of the Russell VQA, Anne Maines, is a survivor her herself and lit a candle in remembrance at the 2012 breakfast. Marie-Claire Ivanski, captain of the Friends for Life team personally thanked the Russell â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For many, many years the group, all volunteers, have done great

work in the making of the quilts for cancer patients. I am proud to be a member of this fine VQA Russell friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group.â&#x20AC;? Ivanski continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also want to bring attention to those who did not know about this very important group and how lucky we are to have a group of these wonderful ladies in Russell. What great comfort it is to receive a quilt while you are undergoing cancer treatments. They do great work and I wanted to recognize their efforts.â&#x20AC;?

WDMH has a place in all of our lives and our hearts. Just as we fondly remember lessons learned, experiences shared or favourite things, we treasure the legacy that our loved ones leave us. Legacies can be left in different ways, sometimes through talents or wisdom shared. A legacy gift represents both of these things, but also provides a financial benefit for your charity of choice. By planning for a legacy gift through the WDMH Foundation, you are imparting your wisdom on those around you and sharing the proceeds of your talents.

Legacy gifts require preparation and planning, so you can imagine how touched we are to receive them. We especially love sharing the impact these gifts make at WDMH. Your legacy gift to the WDMH Foundation will have a lasting impact at WDMH, just as our loved ones stay with us in spirit.

World of Outlaws late Models visit Cornwall CORNWALL— The World of Outlaws (WOO) Late Models Series was in town for their annual visit to the Cornwall Motor Speedway on June 23. Also in action were the Modified, Sportsman and Semi-Pro divisions. In the 50-lap WOO feature, it was Darrell Lanigan who got out in front off a caution, with three laps to go, and held on to grab the victory. Clint Smith, Bub McCool, Billy Decker and Shane Clanton rounded out the top five. St. Albert’s Stephane Lafrance remained atop the Modified points standings

after a third place finish in the 30-lap feature. It was Kyle Dingwall who kept getting his car to the front in the race. Even with a few lead changes, he was able to be at the front of the pack when the yellow lights came on with 11 laps to go as rain caused slippery track conditions. Dingwall took the win followed by Danny O’Brien, Lafrance, Chris Raabe and Luke Whitteker.

Russell Raiders U14 dominating Ottawa District league in early goings of soccer season Hockey Association becomes Hockey Eastern Ontario RUSSELL— The Russell Raiders U14 Girls competitive soccer team is aiming high this season. Most of the girls, who have been playing together since U9, are now seeing their play go to the next level. Two years ago they finished second at the L5 level (Division 1). Last year, they

moved up a level to L 4, and finished in the middle of the pack. This year, still in the L4 division (Premier), the team has taken the league by storm and is perfect at 4-0 in league standings. They are alone in first place and going strong. The team has added two new players this year and the combination of

new energy with their existing core has proven to be a great recipe for success. The team has played two tournaments so far. The early Icebreaker Tournament was a very good showing even with penalty-kick losses in the semis and then in the bronze medal game. Earlier in June,

the squad won the Nepean Friendship Tournament in a U15 division. Russell beat North Bay 1-0 in the finals. The team also had a perfect no goals against record for the tournament. The team will be playing two more tournaments this season and will keep the push on to finish in top spot in the league.

The Russell Raider U14 girls squad is off to a tremendous start this season. Not only have they won tournament gold, but they currently lead their league atop the standings at 4-0. The team is hoping to ride this season out and earn promotion for the second time in three years.

OTTAWA— At the ODHA Annual General Meeting, on June 8 in Ottawa, a motion was passed by the delegates to change the name of the Ottawa and District Hockey Association (ODHA) to Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO), starting July 1, 2013. The name change will become more consistent with what is used by the other branches of hockey associations across Canada. The goal of the name change will be to clearly define the area serviced and will provide for increased marketability and branding opportunities. The ODHA was founded in 1920 by Captain Edward Archibald and is one of 13 branches of Hockey Canada. The participant base consists of associations, leagues, players, coaches, trainers, officials, and volunteers. The ODHA has jurisdiction over that part of Ontario lying east of, and including the counties of Lanark, Renfrew, and all of Leeds (except the town of Gananoque) right up to the Quebec border, including the city of Ottawa. The ODHA is the voice of all its members and partici-

pants at the Hockey Canada level. As a not-for-profit organization, a Board of Directors guides the ODHA. The ODHA also is the governing body that oversees the three tier two junior leagues in the area: the Central Canada Hockey League (Junior A), Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League (Junior B) and National Capital Junior Hockey League (Junior C). The objectives of the Association are: to promote and improve the sport of Amateur Hockey within the territory under its control; secure the enforcement of the rules of the game as adopted by the ODHA; conduct elimination competition for the different Association Champions as well as Challenges for Inter-Branch and Canadian Championships; adjudicate on all questions arising from and pertaining to Amateur Hockey within this branch of Hockey Canada. The delegates also announced that a new logo depicting the name change will be produced, and unveiled at a later date.
