Local coach a runner-up for NFL Canada’s Coach of the year Darren Matte Villager Sports RUSSELL— For anyone involved with football in Russell or the surrounding area, the name Nick Longval is very familiar. That is because when it comes to football in Russell, it generally starts with him. Longval is the founder of the Russell Renegades minor football program as well as the driving force behind the program at St. Thomas Aquinas. In addition to his efforts in building the foundation of these programs, Longval now also coaches both. On November 5, he got more of an honour from his players than he could have ever imagined as it was announced that Longval was one of nine finalists for the NFL Canada’s Coach of the Year award and was named as one of two runner-ups on Nov. 13 awarding him $2,000 for equipment for the programs. “When I found out about the nomination I was overwhelmed. I think the fact that I loved the most was that it was the kids that took the initiative they had to write 500 word essays and then went on to form a Face Book group. It really is pretty humbling. Just to have made it to the top nine is a huge award.� The original nomination came from Mitchell Brown, but 75 of Longval’s players submitted essays. The FaceBook group, started by a former player, Derek Robinson, has more than 591 members. The winner of the award receives $5,000 in new equipment for the football programs. As one of the two runners-ups Longval will receive $2,000. In all, more than 350 coaches across the country were nominated for the 14th year of the award. Longval began coaching in 2001 when he was still attending McGill University, where he played for the Redmen for four seasons as a defensive back. He got involved in a camp and then got the coaching bug. Continued on page 11

Teachers roll out labour action Pamela Pearson Villager Staff RUSSELL - Teachers across the province took job action, on Mon., Nov. 12, after negotiations with the province broke down. In its labour showdown with the province, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation (OSSTF) has created a list of sanctions for teachers to follow and includes items such as not supplying for absent colleagues, not supervising students outside of class or for any extra-cur-

ricular activities, not to talk to parents outside of school hours nor attend staff meetings. Originally, the defiant strike action was to take place last week ,on Wed. Nov. 7, but was extended to allow more time for talks and was not to suppress any bad press the teachers may have received for the potential cancellation of Remembrance Day ceremonies. “The simple answer is no, absolutely not,� said Leslie Wolfe, a member of the OSSTF

executive. Wolfe, who spoke to The Villager from Toronto, also noted that the sanctions would not affect students’ education and pointed out that teachers aren’t barred from taking part in extracurricular activities. “School boards may hire occasional teachers to carry out the substitute-teaching role,� she said. And while that option would result in additional costs for a board, she added that “nothing stops an administrator from supervising a classroom while a teacher leaves 20 minutes early to coach a team.� When asked how this would affect local schools, both Russell High School Principal Shelly Corlyon

and Prescott-Russell Ward 10 Board Trustee Caroll Carkner had no comment and referred to Upper Canada District School Board Chair Greg Pietersma who stated that “every day at 3 p.m., principals are calling in to communicate with the Board about what has been going on within their school.� Pietersma reported that activities are still going on, such as the EOSSA boy’s volleyball and girls basketball, and other activities are being modified. He also stated, “All the teacher’s are following the OSSTF sanctioned list and so far, we, the board, are able to mediate the effects. “ Continued on page 2

RHS students LaRochelle’s love of theatre grows enjoy all seasons Shannon Hoag Russell High School Student Special to The Villager RU S S ELL - I t’s already halfw ay through the semester and Russell High School (RHS) is keeping as busy as ever. Everyone is settled in to their classes and getting ready for mid-terms. That hasn’t slowed down student interactions though! This last of week of October featured a ‘Hallo-week’ theme with a bake sale of Halloween treats, lots of students dressing up on Oct. 31 and the first ever Haunted Room was featured. The chemistry lab was transformed into ‘Frankenstein’s Lab’ by student council and included a mad scientist role filled by none other than Mr. Addis. Also for Halloween, the RHS Link Crew held a Trick or Trunk event for the grade nines. Car trunks were filled with candy, games and included RAPA hosting a youth showing The Rocky Horror Show. Kelsea Mann, a Link Crew member, remarked, “The enthusiasm of both the link leaders and grade nines was impressive and overall, I believe the event was a great success for all those who attended.” The extra-curriculars are still going strong. The girls’ basketball team is going to EOSSA and boys’ basketball is just starting up, as is the girls’ volleyball team with try-outs and pre-season prep. The RHS concert band has also got going and can be heard practising around the school. Coming up in December, the school and students alike, will be dressed to the nine’s for the annual Oscar’s dance which takes place on Dec 7. This years theme is a glittery Winter Wonderland! Later in the month, students will putting on a wonderful evening of Christmas plays. There is always something going on at RHS and always something to look forward to!

Scouts complete enviromental badge Brody Cashman 2nd Russell Scout Special to the Villager RUSSELL - On Sat. Nov. 3 the 2nd Russell Scout troop participated in the South Nation River Cleanup. This is a youth driven initiative, it went from 9 a.m. to noon under the bridges in Embrun and Russell. This entire activity was to improve water quality. Fifteen Scouts, with the help of five leaders, were working on their world environmental badge. The group was also helped by the South Nation River Authority and the Township of Russell and received a private donation from an anonymous donor who overheard the troops

planning session one afternoon. Cashman states “You would expect there to be dead fish, frogs, or even sea shells but who would predict finding a vacuum, microwave, or even a stereo. What is water life really like? Maybe they tried to clean up the water with a vacuum?” The troop as a whole hopes that whoever reads this article will think twice about littering. The scouts learn that even though it is out of site doesn’t mean it’s out of mind. To assist them in future clean ups, donations can be made, please contact 2nd Russell Scouts or visit their w e b s i t e

Pamela Pearson Villager Staff Local theatre resident and music buff, Stephanie La Rochelle, 18 of Greely, made it to the top three of in CBC’s musical competition Over The Rainbow. Sadly, she lost out to Danielle Wade of LaSalle, Ont., who has been chosen to play Dorothy in an Andrew Lloyd Webber’s upcoming stage production of The Wizard of Oz. The competition began last spring with girls from across Canada auditioning for the role of Dorothy. From that, 20 were selected to attend the Dorothy Farm over the summer months, where the number was narrowed down to ten. It was these ten young ladies who were to compete in the television real-

ity series. When ask if there was a favourite episode that she was part of, La Rochelle stated that she couldn’t just choose one because every week was so different, but if there was favourite song, “I would say that I had the most fun with Evita’s Buenos Aires in Episode 4.” La Rochelle noted, with enthusiasum, that she has taken much away from the experience overall. “I have learned so much about myself and grown as a performer - if anything it has made my love for theatre even stronger.” La Rochelle also believes strongly, that being part of the competition has been a career defining experience, claiming it has opened many

doors and more publicity than she could have ever asked for. It was that which La Rochelle feels was also her biggest barrier to face and overcome. “It took some time to get used to is the fact that cameras follow you around as it is a reality TV show. You just learn to pretend they are not there though and they tend to “disappear”. The Villager asked what her next move was, LaRochelle stated “I'd like to find an agent and try to find some auditions as I have the year off from school.” When quieried if she could choose only one emotion, more than any other to describe what drives her, LaRochelle said it would be passion. “It is the passion that drives me to pursue this. I am

so passionate about performing and absolutely love it so my passion carries me through.” It is this this passion that began with first musical influences such as Mamma Mia, Annie, and of course, The Wizard of Oz.

CRRRC sites TOR rejected by council Pamela Pearson Villager Staff EMBRUN - Russell Township council spoke loud and clear rejecting Taggart Miller Environmental Services’ proposed Terms of Reference (TOR) a document that sets a framework of two potential Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre (CRRRC) sites in our area. The TOR is currently under review by Ontario’s Ministry of Environment. A large crowd fill the Gaston Patenaude Hall, in the township building, on the eve of Oct. 29, where one Dump The Dump! supporter stated “The atmosphere in the council chambers was electric and people were on the edge of their seats to see how the council would vote. When the

amendment was passed that the TOR was rejected, the crowd broke into cheers, clapping and relieved that the council had heard the people and did the right thing!” Besides the fact that the document presented to the township and its residents was not bilingual, the Environmental Sub-committee found and presented over 45 risks of the project. The worksheet, which is broken down into 12 sections, can be found on the township website under the Advisory Committees/Environmental Advisory section for review. When asked what the response was like from residents to the Ministry of the Environment, Jeffery Dea, Special Project Officer of the Environmental Approvals

Roll out Continued from the front School council agenda Although this topic is not an agenda item on the next Russell High School council meeting, parents of students are invited to attend the Nov. 19 meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m. Following at 7 p.m., Trustee Carkner and school councils members from Rockland HS, Rockland PS, Plantagenet PS, Cambridge PS, and Russell PS will be in attendance to hear Superintendent Valerie Allen speak about Strategic Plan- Mental Health and Wellness, the Parent Involvement Committee and the Ontario Public School Board Association Trustee Innovation Award.

Branch is quoted as saying “During the public comment period, the ministry received a number of submissions from interested persons about the proposed Terms of Reference for the proposed Capital Region Resource Recovery Centre Environmental Assessment. The ministry is still reviewing the submissions and does not have an exact number to provide at this time. Comments were provided both in support of and against the proposal.” He also noted that the TOR is a work plan for how an environmental assessment and public consultation is to be carried out and if approved, the proponent will be required to carry out the environmental assessment work in accordance with the approved TOR. The Citizens’ Environmental Stewardship

Association-East of Ottawa (CESA-EO) operating as Dump the Dump Now! Campaign spent many volunteer hours assembling and distributing information packages for residents to respond. According to the CESAEO “We had in advance of the Oct.15 deadline for submission; submitted to the MOE, two peer reviews, one by Steve Rowe, an Environmental Planner and Wilf Ruland, an Hydrogeologist, who are both well regarded in their fields of expertise.” The reviews can be found on the campaign’s website. The MOE is expected to make a yea or nay decision on the proposed TOR by a soft date of Dec.15, as one needs to be given eight to 12 weeks after the close of public submissions, which was Oct. 15.

EDITORIAL Change in Russell Now that the Service Ontario Land Registry Office has been moved out of the rented space in the historic building at the corner of Castor and Concession in Russell, what will become of the brick-faced gem in the centre of the village? Hopefully it will find a suitable commercial use and not residences, as it has a charm from the outside to draw in business – perhaps a community space, or a gallery for locals to show off or sell their of creations. Sadly though, this is not the only space that remains empty in the village, nor in Embrun. As amalgamation continues, and the costs of restoration / renovation continue to rise above what can be seen as affordable, what will be the effect on these buildings, these spaces? What happens to it when the proposal arrives to put in another brightly lit convenience store when that intersection finally gets lights? Will it have to be demolished to support the infrastructure for a properly lighted intersection? And those of us living here know it has been discussed, and is coming as we watch the population of Russell bloom. As the developments on Church Street and out on 300 move ahead, and people need to access the shopping district in Embrun, traffic flow and safety will demand it. Is it an opportunity to create a new public “green space” by using what is already there (recycling parts of the building) to create an environmentally friendly public space with more efficient operations, for example solar power, while reducing the construction footprint in our down town? Might it become the Russell hub of an Embrun to Russell bus service to reduce congestion on Castor. There is room there to turn a vehicle around, and looking ahead, the volume of traffic on the reduced speed road into the traffic circle, one can see a nightmare in the making as traffic through Russell increases. Is this idea of a shuttle station hub suitable to host a socially positive site for our youth too – since it lies on a major corridor to and from their schools? It is hard to deny that this will become a need as the youth population surges with the new housing developments. Services for seniors is already an area of need, and the commuting and youth needs fully support some forward looking thinking that will also preserve some of the core of Russell. It is easy to dream and create grand plans to renew and freshen up the life of a building that has stood at the centre of attention for an era or two. But what is the reality of it? What is its place in our community, as our dependence on vehicles grows. As a community, especially the one without the defined business park and shopping area, we need to look ahead to the needs of the future, and factor them into our plans. This is as much about the character of the community as it is about the look and feel of it. We have an opportunity here to do some real planning to make the core of Russell sustainable, and to support people walking through it. To do nothing is to watch it turn into a congested mass of cars passing through. Now is the time to look ahead and think of our needs, and how spaces like this building can be modernized in purpose to serve us and also preserve what has been. Pamela Pearson

Who’s left to remember? “But as I grew older and learned the world was free I came to appreciate their sacrifice they’d made for you and me.” The words are from a poem by Ivan Tanner read aloud as part of the annual Remembrance Day ceremony that packed the streets around Russell Legion Branch 372 with residents of all ages standing shoulder to shoulder paying their respects. Partly no doubt because it landed on a Sunday, Remembrance Day 2012 seemed to draw an even larger crowd than usual, bolstered by worshippers as they exited local church services. The weather cooperated every step of the way from parade to closing comments, to the lineup filing into the Legion hall to enjoy the traditional free lunch offered by Branch 372 members, begging the question: Can you ever have too many egg salad sandwiches? It was a terrific ceremony in fine Russell style, with the singing of O Canada and the always breathtaking playing of Last Post and Reveille, this year by Randy Bird, all at the outdoor podium with Robin Chalmers once again serving as MC. The placing of the wreaths is always a touching part of the program, with dozens of tributes deposited at the cenotaph on behalf of Russellers who made the supreme sacrifice. Representing Canadian mothers for the first time this year was Jocelyn St. Pierre, whose husband,

Mayor Jean-Paul St. Pierre, had earlier mentioned the tremendous pride the municipality felt about the high calibre of thank you offered to our veterans. Lest anyone think that Jocelyn snagged the tremendous honour because of her affiliation to the mayor… she was asked to represent mothers because of her long service in the Legion auxiliary and her credentials as the daughter of a father who served with distinction. “They’re running out of local ladies who can do it,” she observed after the ceremony. A rightly sombre occasion, there was a moment or two of levity during proceedings after an Armed Forces fly-past overshot the mark. Right on cue, a V-formation of Canada geese flew directly overhead. “There it is,” a few wiseacres cried out pointing to the geese after searching the skies for the fly-past. “It’s all they could afford.” Tanner’s poetic words represented the sentiments of the majority of people who gathered, most too young to have fought in the major world wars or Korea or to have lived through them, most never part of Armed Forces missions to Iraq and Afghanistan. Willy Ghadie is one who lived through armed conflict, back in the 1970s in his native Lebanon in a farming village about two hours drive from Beirut, but far from immune from civil war hostilities that have

shattered that country. “We heard the guns all the time and you could see the tracer bullets at night between villages,” Willy recalled as we observed the Legion ceremony. “I lost some relatives and friends in the war.” Not wanting to kill or be killed, the Ghadie family left Lebanon in 1976 when Willy was 14 and came to Ottawa. Every year for the past 15, Willy has laid a Remembrance Day wreath on behalf of the Russell Restaurant that he operates with brother Joe and their families. Willy was upset a few years ago when he heard someone had commented he participated in wreath laying for commercial reasons. There’s no other motivation, he insisted, than to show respect for those who suffer and die in any war, and as a symbol of peace. Bill McInnis knows a lot about trying to preserve peace. It’s amazing what you can learn about your fellow Russellers when you catch them out of context. For me, proper context for Bill is inside the Russell Association for the Performing Arts with which he’s been a performer, director and all-round crewmember for the past 18 years. So I was surprised when he came walking towards me at the Legion reception with two medals pinned to his street clothes. “Are you wearing you father’s medals?,” I queried. “They’re my medals,” he replied modestly. Then I

noticed the blue beret. It turns out Bill had a 21-year career in the Canadian Forces, partly on unarmed United Nations peacekeeping duty in the Golan Heights where, among other incidents, he was almost involved in a shootout over a bag of milk. Does he think of himself as a true veteran? On Remembrance Day, does he give thanks to others who served or accept it for himself? It’s a bit of both, Bill said. But he doesn’t really put himself in the same league as those who went the distance or died trying in the major wars. I countered that anyone who volunteered to help keep world peace – and unarmed at that – in a war zone deserves all the credit of any other veteran. Bill retired as a Master Corporal. The medals are for his UN service and for general service. He’s owed a third service medal that he hasn’t yet got around to applying for. “Get it done,” I urged. “I want to see three medals on your chest next year.” “The youngsters from Korea, well they are old now too So who’s left to remember? Only me and only you.”

Does missing modifier mean battle’s lost? to LETTERStheEditor The Editor: Imagine my surprise when reading the caption beneath a photo of wild turkeys on page 3 of the Nov. 7 edition of The Villager to find out that they were “photographed at the dump site on Eadie Road.” I was quietly sipping my coffee but almost spurted it out. Really? A dump on Eadie Road! Where? I presume that The Villager has mistakenly labeled the quarry site as a dump. As hopefully most of the community is aware Taggart Miller

Environmental Services Inc. has put forward a proposal to establish a so-called “integrated waste management facility” (code for a dump). But it is only that. A proposal. Not a fait accompli.

Committee to rally support within the community to protest against Taggart Miller’s TOR by sending letters, emails, postcards, etc to the MOE and Minister

Bradley by the end of the 30 day comment period on Oct. 15. At a meeting on the Oct. 29 the Township of Russell’s mayor and councillors voted to recommend that the MOE reject Taggart Miller’s TOR. Their recommendation was based on a number of serious concerns raised by the Township’s Environmental Advisory Committee, including threats to ground and surface water, noise, traffic and the fear that in the absence Continued on page 5

Letter- wrong impression given of specific waste diversion targets Taggart Miller’s “integrated waste management facility” would just become another “dump”. While the MOE is the decision maker, the Township’s recommendation is significant. An announcement by the MOE on whether or not they have accepted or rejected Taggart Miller’s TOR is expected by mid December. So against this backdrop, that The Villager could go to press with such a glaring

error is indeed unfortunate. The last thing that we need at this point is for people within the community to believe that the fight is over, whether it be based on the mistaken impression that the Council’s recommendation that the MOE reject the TOR has “killed” the project or worse still, that the quarry site is already a dump. Either way it can only serve to play into Taggart Miller’s hands. Since they are still vigorously pursuing their proposal, we must maintain

vigilance. We certainly cannot rest easy until they are defeated and the dump is dumped for good. Noel Murray 596 Eadie Road Russell Editor’s Note: The Villager apologizes for the oversight in not naming the “proposed” dump site as such in this caption, however it is the editor’s opinion that regardless of the missing word, the correct information was conveyed.

SEASONAL SENTIMENTS For Martha The merry best babysitter in Russell. Love all of the kids, Past and present ____________________

Keep kids engaged and occupied during holiday shopping trips Holiday shopping with kids can be fun. Kids enjoy giving gifts, and bringing them along on shopping excursions to offer their input can make the season that much more special for youngsters. But bringing the little ones along on a holiday shopping trip also can be tricky, as kids can easily grow tired or bored at the mall. The following are a few tips to ensure kids and adults enjoy their holiday shopping trips together. Bring backup. Kids might find shopping enjoyable at the outset, but visiting store after store can drain them of that enthusiasm. To quell the inevitable boredom, bring along some backup, such as a handheld video game or a tablet or e-reader on which kids can watch a favorite film or television show. Choose your shopping destination wisely. All malls and retailers are certainly not equal, especially when kids will be accompanying you for a day of shopping. Some malls offer attractions for kids, such

as a merry-go-round or a live performance with a holiday theme. Such attractions provide some balance to a shopping trip, giving kids something to look forward to between store visits. Don't be a Scrooge. An ice cream cone, some holiday cookies or a hot chocolate might not be the healthiest fare for youngsters, but such items can make a shopping excursion that much more enjoyable. When shopping with kids in tow, relax a youngster's dietary restrictions so they can enjoy some holiday treats while shopping till they drop. Give kids some spending money. Kids are more likely to engage themselves in a holiday shopping trip if they have some spending money of their own. Offer children some money before leaving the house, and tell them the money is theirs to spend on gifts as they see fit. Kids might just enjoy looking for the perfect gift and hunting down a holiday bargain as much as Mom and Dad. -

Did you know?

Making a list when holiday shopping can help you avoid spending more than your budget allows. Rather than be caught off guard, carefully make your shopping list and include everyone you intend to gift. Purchase one or two extra generic gifts just in case something comes up. It is much easier to afford holiday giving when you can divide your budget by the number of gift recipients rather than having to add on gifts after the fact. Also, in the event you are left with extra gifts that were unnecessary, you can return them after the holidays and use the money to treat yourself to something nice or donate the gift or the returned funds to someone in need. -

Gift ideas for the man cave Darren Matte Special to The Villager THE MAN CAVE— It is a place where men can go to be themselves in their home. Recently, the idea of a man cave has generated huge momentum and more and more guys are turning basements, garages or any room they can into their own place of serenity. With the Christmas season approaching this is the time to give the gift to guys to help create their man cave. Well, The Villager, has done some of the grunt work for you in determining what you need for a successful man cave. We surveyed 15 men between the ages of 20 and 55 to see what their top three essentials are for a man cave. Based on a point system where any answer that a respondent answered first received three points, second, two points and third, one point, the items were ranked from first (most points) to 10th. In addition, to help out, The Villager did some research and found product trends and local businesses where you can find these products, or at least start to look. It will give you the inside track in searching for those man cave christmas ideas.

Top 10 10. Video Game System They are not just for kids! Whether you are a sports fan, fantasy nut or just want to see what it’s like to be in the special forces, there is something that can appeal to you. XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 are still aimed more at adults than children with real life graphics and mature game content. Your standard stores like Wal-Mart stock whatever you may need, but also look at pre-owned to save money. EB Games (GameStop) and Microplay in both Ottawa and Cornwall are options.

9. Adult Entertainment We won’t get into too much detail here. It’s your judgment call, whatever floats your boat, guys.

8. Computer This one really depends on what

you want to use a computer for. First, you have to ask Mac or PC? Is it for things like video and games (Mac might be a better option) or work (PC). If Mac, there is the Apple Store (online or in Ottawa), or you can find some refurbished retailers, but they are rare. As for PC’s, there are many places you can pick them up, but looking at some smaller retailers could help you get exactly what you need. Some local businesses include: Silicon Valley Computers in Embrun and Micro Custom Computers in Morrisburg.

7. Sound System A new trend in sound systems is sound bars that are easier to install than the “Home Theatre in the Box” models because of less wiring. Again, it really depends on what you are looking for. The Source and Re-Bass in Embrun along with Neil’s Radio and TV in Morrisburg are good places to start. If you already know exactly what you M&T Advertising in want, Chesterville can take Sears orders, which has a good selection.

6. Pool Table The ultimate game for the ultimate room is a pool table. The key with a pool table is to know your space. Take the dimensions of your room to a place like Rack-M-Up Billiards in Cornwall or Under the Table in Ottawa. They can tell you what size table is best, and both have a large selection of styles.

5. Man Décor Whether you are sports fan, car guy or outdoorsman, this category is up to you. Have your room represent what you like. If you are a sports fan and looking for something specific your best bet is probably online, but if you like to browse, Sports Experts and Clubhouse in Ottawa and KC’s Sports World in Kemptville are starters.

4. Beer fridge The drinks need to be chilled! Sears and Maheu in Embrun have you covered here. You can even look for small fridges designed for cans and bottles. There are also some that double as a

wine cooler and there are many styles. The key is to not go big, don’t use the old kitchen fridge because it just sucks energy and costs money that takes away from the drinks that could go in the fridge.

3. Seating Comfort is key! Maheu and Sears have your local selection whether you are looking for recliners, reclining sofas, sectionals or even fold out beds (in case you want to spend the night in the man cave) as both stores have a large selection. One thing to be on the look out for are couches with storage or even built in coolers.



2. Bar Drinks are served! This depends on the style you want and the space you have. Look for local contractors, many of whom are in this tab, and tell them what you want and see who can do it in your price range.


1. TV The undisputed champion is… Almost all participants listed TV on their list and on the points system nothing else was even close. There are lots of local places including: Maheu, Neil’s Radio and TV, Sears and the Source to name a few to find your TV. When looking for the right TV consider your room. Plasma is great for a home theatre, but if you have light coming in or reflecting off the screen stay away from them. LED and LCD have become big sellers and are more energy efficient which means (see #4, more drinks in fridge). Also look for connected TV. Many new TV’s have this; it means you can connect to the Internet and stream things such as NetFlix and other material. The final thing to consider is 3D. Remember that 3D TVs also work in 2D so make sure it fits your 2D needs and not just 3D. Well, that is our list, but really what goes into a man cave is really up to you or the owner of the Cave. We hope that this list has given you a few ideas for man cave gift ideas, but remember to keep in mind the personality of the man cave you are shopping for.

Santa says, “Come to Giant Tiger for all your gift giving needs!”

NFL Canada Coach of the Year runner-up Continued from the front Seven years ago, he formed the St. Thomas program. “We were the first school in the area to have a team. Cornwall had some programs so we played against them and even against Quebec teams in the first year.” Now there are programs all over Prescott-Russell and Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry and the school doesn’t need to travel as far to play games. In 2008, Longval also began the local minor football program, the Russell Renegades. “I started mainly with the administrative stuff and recruited coaches. Then when my oldest son was able to play, I began coaching his team.” When asked what it is that drives him to coach, for Longval, it really is the impact he has on the players. “Our society doesn’t always focus on necessities of life. We try to set kids up not to fail but sometimes in life you are going to fail. Sports can be used to challenge kids and show them how to deal with a failure. It teaches them to be accountable to others.” It is not just the impact he sees with current players. Longval also cherishes seeing former players come back and start coaching themselves. “It is an unbelievable experience when you see a kid that you coached returning the favour as a coach themselves.” Longval spends considerable time not only coaching football, but hockey, rugby, soccer and teaches personal fitness classes. Despite his busy schedule he loves what he does. “Someone once told me ‘you can sleep when you’re dead.’ I know it is a lot

of work but the rewards outweigh the effort.” One of the rewards Longval saw recently was the first championship for the school in the form of a junior boys title this past season. But it is not always the wins and losses that Longval remembers. “I think just certain games where the boys turn into men because they have to dig deep and persevere. Seeing them develop character and move on as a coach or player at a higher level is very rewarding.” One player Longval has seen elevate his game to a higher level, team Ontario, is Shane Kelly, an 18-year-old, defensive end who has played under Longval for seven years. “This is a great honour for him. It is so well deserved.” Kelly says that there are many things that make Longval a great coach. “He has an understanding for the players because he played university football himself. He is a good teacher who cares about his players. He will tell guys what they need to do to get to the next level and is very motivating. He teaches you the basics because he knows how to play every position. He’s really just a phenomenal guy.” Someone else who sees all of the work Longval puts in is his wife, fellow teacher, coach and athletic director at St. Thomas, Penny, who says she was brought to tears when she heard the effort taken by the students. “I am just so proud. Football for Nick is a yearlong thing. When one season is done he begins planning for the next. I will regularly see him in bed with his laptop creating plays and of course he is

involved in many other sports.“ Penny was quite happy to share the news of Longval’s finalist nomination with the rest of the faculty at the school. “It was huge for showcasing the school. I sent out an email to all of the teachers not just because of the award, but because it was all student driven. Every one is so excited and proud of the students who made it happen. For the students to reward him like that is just so gratifying for coaches to know that we have been good role models.” way Longval The approaches coaching is something that Penny believes is good for the school. “He makes all of his players accountable. To the rest of the team and in the classroom. We have seen kids who have no drive that are on the verge of failing come into a team that he coaches and have seen their behavior turn right around. His players come to school with a new drive.” It is not only the players he coaches at the school that he affects. Longval’s contributions have reached the teams in the community he is part of. “So many times he is asked to coach a team or be an assistant and to hear kids say ’I can’t wait to get to STA, so that I can be coached by him’ is really something to be proud of.“ It is that influence on sport in the Russell community that makes Longval truly deserving of this honour. London’s Dave Hocking was awarded the title, while Abitibi-Témiscamingue's Trevor Allen-Monaghan was named along with Longval as the other runner-up.

Panthers lose two on weekend EMBRUN—The weekend started poorly for the Embrun Panthers and ended even worse. The Panthers began with a trip to La Peche on Nov. 9 where they returned home failing to gain any points and then fell to St. Isidore on Nov. 11. Embrun 2 La Peche 6 La Peche wasted little time in getting the scoring started, as 3:30 into the first Dominick Lafrenière-Renaud scored, while Andries Selst was in the box for hooking. The Panthers got that one right back 1:15 later when Eric Garrioch scored from Ryan Kemp and Taylor Armstrong. The teams remained tied at one at the

break. La Peche took the lead in the second with a goal by Guillaume Grégoire. Again the Panthers drew even and again it was Garrioch with his second of the game, 2-2 after two. Unfortunately, only one offense was clicking in the third and it was La Peche’s. The Preds scored four goals, David Gironne, Gauvreau, Antoine Danick Cloutier-Chapman and Lafrenière-Renaud’s second to take the 6-2 win. Dana Polex was in the Panthers net and took the loss. Embrun 1 St. Isidore 4 The Panthers looked to rebound two days later when

they travelled to St. Isidore. The home side jumped out to a big first-period lead with a trio of goals to lead 3-0 after one. St. Isidore added to their advantage in the second making 4-0 with one period to play. Embrun did break the shutout in the third with a goal by Dexter MacMillan, but it was not enough as St. Isidore took the win 4-1. Félix Lalonde scored three goals and assisted on Alexandre Lamarche’s other tally in the win for St. Isidore. Polex took the loss for Embrun; Ghislain Nadeau earned the win for St. Isidore. This week Embrun will visit Papineauville on Nov. 18 looking to get back on track.

Jets dropped by Canadians; defeat Golden Knights OTTAWA– The Metcalfe Jets, fresh off a big win at home against the Gatineau Mustangs on Nov. 4, rolled into the Brian Kilrea Arena Nov. 6 night and were outhustled by the Ottawa Junior Canadians en route to a 6-1 loss. The Jets followed that performance with a good showing, thanks to goaltending and timely goals, that propelled the Jets to victory when Ottawa West came to town on Nov. 11. Jets 1 Canadians 6 Only able to generate 15 shots in the game, and few quality scoring chances, Metcalfe struggled to skate with the Junior Canadians who controlled the flow of the game and seemed to be able to break out of their zone with ease. The Jets lone goal came short-handed at 5:23 of the first period as Daniel Abraham took a feed from Glenden Bakker and fired a low shot to beat Ottawa’s goalie Matt Couvrette, which at the time tied the

game at 1-1. Ottawa then scored five unanswered goals over the remaining two periods to post the victory. Jet’s goalie Ryan McLaughlin was peppered with 28 shots and took the loss; Matt Courvette earned the win stopping 14. Both team could not get it going on the power play, the Jets were 0-3; while the Canadians went 0-2. Jets 4 Golden Knights 2 The Metcalfe Jets had the right recipe fˇor a win over the divisional powerhouse Ottawa West Golden Knights as net-minder Eric Drouin made a number of big stops early in the game, and veteran Patrick Martin returned to the lineup following an absence due to an injury and helped spark the Jets offence to a 4-2 victory in the increasingly tight Metro division of the EOJHL. After a tight-checking and scoreless first period, Martin opened the scoring for Metcalfe at 13:42 of the

second frame. Martin fired his second goal of the period, on the power play, at 8:23 of the period. The Golden Knights, who entered the game tied with Gatineau atop the Metro division, responded in the third with two goals off the sticks of Phil Edgar and Brad Mason to tie the game at two with eight minutes left in the third period. The Jets’ Joel Cunningham broke the deadlock with just over four minutes left in the match and Scott Fleming put the insurance marker into an empty net with just seventeen seconds left on the clock. Drouin celebrated the win by stopping 24 of 26 Ottawa shots while Golden Knights net-minder Benoit Larocque was tagged with the loss kicking out 22 of 25 Jet’s shots. ˇMetcalfe travels to Buckingham Nov. 16 for a date with the Gatineau Mustangs before returning home to host the Ottawa Junior Canadians on Nov. 18.

Broomball World Champs!

Vikes down Wolves and Hawks; sunk by Lions CASSELMAN— The Vikings had a busy weekend this past week with three games in four nights. The Vikings began at home on Nov. 8 to the Akwesasne Wolves before heading out on the road to face Winchester and Morrisburg. Vikings 8 Wolves 4 Kyle Beauchamp Lalonde had a night he will never forget on Nov. 8 against the Wolves as the Viking forward had a sevenpoint night with two goals and five assists in the Vikings 8-4 win. Beauchamp lalonde got it started right away with a goal on the power play just over a minute in. The Wolves tied it up with 2:54 to go, on a man advantage, but Joel Adam sent the Vikings to the locker room with a 2-1 lead when he scored with 1:22 remaining. The Vikings began the second with two goals in the first three minutes. Beauchamp-Lalonde got his then Simon second, Cousineau made it 4-1. The Wolves responded with a pair, including a power-play goal, but the Vikings quickly got them back with two more in the last five minutes. First it was Adam Wensink, on another Vikings power play, then Maxime Choquette made it 6-3. The Vikings power play clicked again in the third as Wensink scored his second of the game. Then, after Akwesasne made it 7-4, Curtis Chennette got one on the man advantage to make the final 8-4 Vikings. Alexandre Michaud made 47 saves for the win; Corey Garrow stopped 36 in the loss. The Vikings power play was very impressive going 5-9 on the night; the Wolves were 2-7. Vikings 7 Hawks 1 The Vikings renewed their hostilities with the Winchester Hawks on Nov.

9 in Winchester. After a slow first half of the first period, things picked up in the second half. The Hawks opened the scoring on a goal by Josh Stubbings with 7:30 to go, but then the Hawks got into penalty trouble and the Vikings capitalized. Adam scored the first power-play goal, as Jamie Olivier was in the box for slashing, tying the game at one. Then, after a wild scrap, the Vikings were on another advantage, and Adam once again scored to make it 2-1. BeauchampLalonde scored one more power-play goal in the final seconds of the frame and it was 3-1 Casselman after one. The rough stuff continued in the second, and again it was the Vikings who capitalized. Beauchamp-Lalonde scored his second of the game five minutes into the period, which extended the lead to 4-1. Then, on yet another Casselman manadvantage, Adam completed his hat trick with his third power-play goal, 5-1 after two. Taylor Widenmaier scored a pair of goals for the Vikings in the third, at the 12:28 and 4:37 marks, and the Vikings easily took the win 7-1. Casselman was an impressive 4-13 on the power play; while the Hawks continued to struggle going 0-9. The shots were quite even with Casselman holding a 43-42 advantage. Michaud picked up his second straight win, while Anthony D’Urso was saddled with the loss. The win propelled the Vikings into top spot in the St. Lawrence Division, taking over from Char-Lan. Vikings 1 Lions 3 Casselman looked to continue their hot play with a second trip to Morrisburg in as many weeks, on Nov. 11. However, the outcome

would be different this time as the Lions got a scrape of revenge against the Vikings. Maxime St-Pierre got the Vikings on the board first with a power-play goal just 3:40 into the opening period. The Lions, came right back and answered with a manadvantage goal of their own when Chris Rutley found the back of the net at the 12:04 point. It remained tied and the teams went to the intermission deadlocked at one. Neither team found one in the second, but just over a

minute into the third, it was the Lions who go the goahead goal. Sylvester Bzdyl got the goal to put Morrisburg in control. With 4:23 to go, Grant Cooper scored the insurance marker and the Lions upset the Vikings 3-1. Casselman was 1-9 on the power play, Morrisburg 1-4. Casselman outshot the Lions 43-26. Phillippe Quesnel took the loss; Mikael Dion got the win. Despite the loss, Casselman remains two points up on Char-Lan for top spot. This week Casselman hosts Alexandria on Nov. 15 and are in Williamstown on Nov. 17 to take on Char-Lan.

Kyle Beauchamp-Lalonde had a night to remember when Casselman hosted Akwesasne, Nov. 8, scoring two goals and five assists in their 8-4 win. Matte photo

Ravens junior football season ends BROCKVILLE— The St. Thomas junior boys football season came to an end on Nov. 9, when they travelled to Brockville to take on St. Mary’s in a clash of league champions. Brandon Lair Larabie scored the lone Ravens touchdown but that was the extent of their offense as they fell 22-7. Coach Nick Longval chalked the loss up to mistakes. ”Our boys had too many mental errors, but all in all they played well and they should be proud of their accomplishments.” Looking back Longval is quite pleased with the way the season turned out. “The season went better than expected. Every year we always wonder if we will have enough junior players to field a team. Winning the league is always our goal going into the season. Hopefully winning will bring more students out to try the sport and bring students from other surrounding areas to make our program stronger.” While Longval is unsure what the junior program will look like next season, he hopes that many will commit to training in the offseason to be ready to join the senior team.
