A shot for health services in Ontario RUSSELL - As we enter into Ontarioâ€™s 13th year of the offering free and publiclyfunded flu shot, Premier Dalton McGuinty announced that some heath services, tradtionally provided by doctors or nurses, can now be done by pharmacists. The flu shot is amongst them. â€œExpanding the role of highly-trained pharmacists is part of the McGuinty governmentâ€™s Action Plan for Health Care (APHC). The plan is suppose to gives Ontarians better access to family doctors, nurse practitioners and other healthcare providers, to ensure that health care dollars are spent most efficiently,â€? stated in a release from MPP Grant Crackâ€™s office. The APHC was release earlier this year. In addition, pharmacists can now renew or adapt prescriptions, prescribe medica-
tion to help people quit smoking; provide asthma inhaler or inject insulin demonstrations and offer better support with chronic disease monitoring. Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care said â€œWe are maximizing the services provided by pharmacists so that Ontarians can receive the care they need safely, quickly and closer to home. Pharmacists are highly-trained and trusted health providers. Itâ€™s time that we benefit fully from all the services they can provide.â€? McGuinty noted that this expansion of delivery, also a recommendation in the Drummond Report, will provide better access and strengthen the health care system and, â€œIt is another way we are ensuring universal health care is there for our children and grandchildren.â€?

Impact of McGuintyâ€™s resignation felt locally Pamela Pearson Villager Staff Ontario Premier Dalton McGuintyâ€™s surprise resignation from office on Monday night has reverberated across the province and GlengarryPrescott-Russell. On the afternoon of Oct. 15, the Liberal premier called a special caucus meeting to
take place at 6 p.m. that same day. According to local Grit MPP Grant Crack, â€œThere were speculations as to what was happening, but certainly I was not expecting it to be two-fold,â€? he said, referring to both McGuintyâ€™s resignation as liberal leader and premier, but his request that the
Lieutenant-Governor prorogue the Legislature as well â€” suspending the provincial house at a time of continuing fallout over the cancellation of two power plants and an ongoing battle with organized labour over legislated wage freezes. â€œIt is time for the next Liberal Premier of Ontario,â€? McGuinty said dur-
ing his broadcast remarks, voice breaking as he sat on the stage before the caucus. â€œIt is time for renewal.â€? Asking the Liberal party president to organize a leadership convention as soon as possible, McGuinty said he would remain as MPP of his Ottawa South riding until the next general election. Crack beleives that McGuinty has made these moves in the â€œbest interest for himself personally and professionally, as he has had a challenging past year helping

Ontarions move forward over.â€? Crack also commented on how proud he is to be part of this government team and supports its initiatives. When asked if he thought there would be anyone stepping up to the leadership podium anytime soon, the MPP stated that he did not know of anyone specific, but suggested all three parties should to take the time to regroup and consult with their constituents for feedback about their needs and move forward â€œto do the
business Ontarions elected us to do.â€? Regarding speculation that McGuintyâ€™s resignation may lead to a spring election, Crack said, â€œWe need to work with the opposition right now to ensure a good, solid budget is tabled and passed in the spring - to work on the behalf of the people of Ontario.â€? He also stated, â€œEveryone needs to take a number of days to absorb the impact of this event, be responsible, respectful and celebrate the accomplishments.â€?

Russell Fire Department
Stovetop fires The Office of the Fire Marshal (OFM) conducted a survey from Aug. 1, 2005 to July 31, 2006 dealing solely with the issue of stovetop fires. During this 12 month period 1,244 fires were stovetop reported in Ontario. The data from these fires was analyzed in order for strategies to be developed therefore assisting in reducing the number of incidents. Some of the trends found in this survey established obvious problems with how people in Ontario are conducting themselves in the kitchen. Cooking fires were the ignition source in 27 per cent of all the preventable residential fires. This is the number one cause in Ontario. Heating is the second cause and occurs in 14 per cent of all preventable residential fires, half the total of cooking fires. In 69 per cent of the fires it was reported that cooking pots and utensils left unattended was the key factor contributing to the ignition or spread of a fire. This is the one cause of ignition that is most preventable. The second key factor was a burner being left on, this was a factor in five per cent of the fires reported. The difference in percentage paints a very clear picture as to what problem has to be addressed first. Oil or grease was the object or substance first ignited in 50 per cent of the fires reported. Other food items were the igni-
tion source in 28 per cent of the fires. Once again an obvious trend is easily defined. One hundred and six of the 1, 244 fires reported injuries resulting in 205 people injured. Fortyfive of the injuries were caused by the person attempting to move or lift the pot from the stove. Forty-four of the injuries were the result of people attempting to extinguish the fire with water. During this period there were seven deaths associated with stovetop fires. The information gathered by the OFM in this survey is invaluable to Fire Departments and the OFM in assessing the problems associated with stovetop fires and how we should address this matter. As can be seen by the injuries and deaths caused by this type of fire this is an issue that must be dealt with sooner rather than later. One factor with cooking fires is that children who receive more fire education than adults are not a factor in cooking fires, so the message has to be delivered to and accepted by adults. Adults, unfortunately, are often a more difficult group to reach when dealing with fire prevention matters, however strategies will be developed to do so. One thing that is certain is that the saying about “too many cooks in the kitchen” obviously doesn’t apply here in Ontario, where the current data proves there obviously aren’t enough.

Free curbside exchange this Saturday Russell Township and the Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC) encourage all residents to participate in “Free Household Exchange Day” to be held Sat., Oct. 20 from 8 a.m. to 5 pm.. Mark any household
items or treasures you may have with a “free” sign and put out at the curb side. This is a great way to recycle, purge, and get rid of unwanted or unused items. It also saves these items from going to the landfill.

Darquise Charron, Scott Tomlinson, Nathan Fowler, Karen Martin Robert Craig, Lil Rankin, Don Melkert and Ron Hubbard who won $25 each. $50 winners include Wendy Achtereeckte and Gloria Huh-Dykstra and the big winner of $100 is Madeline Chabot.
Correction The Editor: Upon reading last week’s Castor Country column Overstuffed praise for garden, I noticed that Tom credited the Russell Horticultural Society volunteers with providing the hanging baskets in the Village. I would like to make note that the Russell Village Women’s Institute has been providing and looking after the 40 hanging baskets and 13 ground planters for the past 11 years, not the Horticultural Society. Funds in the amount of $6,000 per year are raised for our “Keep Russell Blooming” Project. On behalf of our Branch members, I would also like to thank The Russell Horticultural Society for all the terrific work they have done throughout the Village over the years, and we will be supporting them for the Children’s Reading Garden as well as any future projects they undertake. Thank you. Mary Inglis Secretary-Treasurer Russell Village Women’s Institute
One person’s trash is another’s treasure. This is a winwin situation. At the end of the day, items should be removed as they will not be picked up by township. Please donate to a charity. We hope more residents in the township will participate in this event this year. Please have respect for property and do not take anything
that is not marked. Take a drive around and hopefully, you will find that treasure that you have been looking for. I’ll be looking for garden tools.

& Opinion EDITORIAL
7 King St., P.O. Box 368 Chesterville, Ont. K0C 1H0
EDITORIAL Window dressing or essential? This year the number of small businesses across Canada, with at least one employee on the payroll, has reached nearly 1.2 million. According to Industry Canada, between 2002 and 2007, an average of 104,000 new small businesses started employing 5.1 million or 48.3 per cent of the total workforce. So are they the backbone of the economy or just a small but important part? When you realize that they contribute one-third of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product you get a better idea. This is an important metric to recognize, as the GDP represents the market value goods and services created, produced and sold by a country’s total population. In this case, all that work, creating or selling, means employment. Looking at the local businesses in our region, it is not hard to see that most fall into the category of small. There are necessary big players who bring economies of scale and variety, and they are the franchised branches of major chains, like Giant Tiger, Shoppers, Tim Horton’s and the Dodge and Ford dealerships. However, the vast majority of people in our community, who are employed in the community, are working for businesses which are independent. The vast majority, including the Co-op establishments, are locally managed with their product and service selections locally decided upon. Small businesses have always played a role in rural life. The days of farmers keeping their own seeds are long gone; even egg production has become a victim of efficiencies in production, delivery, quality, safety. But the general store, the lawyer, and the doctor (Or was he a barber?) have always been mainstays, and they exist today in one form or another. Many small businesses once dealt exclusively in barter, now frowned upon as it is hard to tax, but it was the essential means to trade goods or services. Value was based upon prior performance and quality. You knew your trading partner, and you negotiated your best price. Small businesses made our community a smarter place, where everyone knew the value of things. Today we live in a world of money, where the price is simply what you pay. Selection has improved, but branding has taken over and we make decisions about where to shop not on the basis of our relationships but of the perceived value for a dollar. Small businesses allow flexibility, the hallmark of the rural community. They fill the niche markets deemed unprofitable by larger retailers. They are competitive for this reason too – the larger retailers have to maintain appearances and profit margins. Thus they pop up and fade away as the times change. The family business may have started as a farm, and over time evolved an equipment repair sideline, but upon retirement and sale of the land, a child or employee may spin that business off in its own right. Times change, but local services are always needed. Small businesses are essential, and are not window dressing. They grow, and they shrink, they find success, and they fail. They are a fact of life, no different than the weather and the crops around us. So think locally and do what you can to support them. Pamela J Pearson

To walk again Five years after a rural road collision consigned student Justin McKenna to a wheelchair, his ultimate goal remains what it has been throughout those years. In a recent email exchange, his ultra supportive mother Suzanne used capital letters for emphasis in restating the goal… or maybe she was yelling at me! “TO WALK AGAIN,” Suzanne reminded me forcefully in explaining that her son never quits, never lets his eye stray from the ball, nor do those around him… just in case I had somehow forgotten. I hadn’t nor has anybody else in and around Russell who knows the Justin McKenna story… pretty well everybody. For those who don’t, here it is in a nutshell: Justin was a popular St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School senior when he was involved in a collision with a car while riding an ATV near his home. The crash almost killed him. It was touch-and-go for days and many observers believe it was the barrage of payers offered by the congregation of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Catholic Church, along with Justin’s own determination, that pulled him through. At the time, Father John Whyte was the church pastor and chief instigator of that non-stop payer blast. In an interesting part of the story, Father Whyte has remained close by ever since, supporting Justin – literally – physically and emotionally. I’ve been in social situations where Justin commands the room and the good father plays the sidekick. As soon as he could, Justin began a relentless daily program of neurophysiotherapy with the previously stated ultimate goal in mind. While there has been much improvement in his
condition from a point when he could only communicate through his eyes and by lifting a finger, that goal still eludes him. Going for the goal is an expensive pursuit, only part of which is covered by insurance. There are the rehabilitation sessions, daily transportation, and full-time assistant Richard Theriault, just to name some of the costlier items. “Ultimately, Justin must pay,” Suzanne said, this time is lower case letters, indicating she accepted the situation as a basic fact of life. That means Suzanne and husband Gerry must pay and, while they both work, it’s a financial burden that would crush most of us. That’s where “Brain Matters” comes in, the fundraiser devised by Justin, family and friends to help him help himself while raising awareness about the long-lasting impact of severe brain trauma. The fundraiser involves dinner, speeches from Justin and guests, videos, live and silent auctions, and music from powerhouse cover band Sticks ‘n Stones, featuring one of Justin’s staunchest supporters and former St. Thomas student Samantha Timmins as a lead singer. “He’s by far the hardest working person I know,” Sam says of her pal. The first Brain Matters was held at Anderson Links Golf Club and last year’s event shifted to the larger Russell Community Centre. Together, they raised about $50,000. Still growing, the third annual edition coming up this Saturday was relocated to the Embrun Recreation Centre seating 300, the biggest hall in Russell Township. If things keep going the way they have been, BM might have to move to an Ottawa facility next year, Sam said, which wouldn’t be a bad thing when one considers the increased awareness a city venue could generate.
“Moving out of Russell perhaps would mean we’re expanding to reach a new population of brain injury learners which is really exciting.” After organizing three big events, awareness of the hard work being expended by Justin and his loyal troops is already deservedly high. At the recent Brain Injury Association of Canada conference in Ottawa, Justin was co-awarded the 2012 Debbie and Trevor Greene Award recognizing extraordinary contributions in advancing awareness of acquired brain injuries. While BM 3 was almost sold out the last time I talked to Suzanne, there may still be a few $40 tickets left this week. It starts at 5 p.m. with a REAL (Suzanne’s capitals) homemade meal. Then come the speakers, auction including chocolate cheesecake made by Justin, and funky dance tunes from Stick ‘n Stones. Sam will also sing a song written for the man of the hour while he was still in hospital. Co-MC this year along with Justin is Mark Hatfield, a former CFL and NFL player now an Ottawa firefighter who has experience with brain injury through sports-related concussion. Another highlight will be a video showing a day in Justin’s life dealing with severe brain injury. It’s “all for the love of our good boy Justin”, Suzanne wrote, using italic letters instead of capitals indicating, I guess, a softer, gentler, more reflective tone.
No more major EO landfills needed The Editor: About 25 years ago, Russell Township opposed a landfill (known as Site 10) that was proposed by the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton (RMOC) at Boundary Rd. and Devine Rd. in the Township of Cumberland (now part of the City of Ottawa). Although the proposed dump was just beyond the limits of Russell Township, the Township Council at that time believed that such an undertaking would have adverse effects on some of
LETTERS Editor to the
its residents. Consequently Russell Township hired the consulting firm Environmental and Technological Research Associates (ETRA) to keep it informed and to act on its behalf at the RMOC Waste Management Task Force. Significantly the location of the formerly proposed Site 10 is at the same location as Taggart-Miller’s new second option for their
omissions in connection with any advertisement is strictly limited to publication of the advertisement in any subsequent issue or the refund of any monies paid for the advertisement.
proposed landfill, the CRRRC, referred to as the Boundary Road Site. The Township’s Environmental Advisory Committee has a special Subcommittee commenting on the CRRRC Terms of Reference and was told recently by the Mayor to restrict their comments to the North Russell Site as if the second option (outside the Township) was of no
real concern to them or the people living here. Would they be happy to see a landfill at this second site? Since the Township was given extra time (until Nov. 2) by the MOE to respond to the Terms of Reference, I think they should include issues related to this new site as well. No more major landfills are required in Eastern Ontario! Harry Baker 208 Forced Rd. Russell, ON,

Fall is heating up at RHS Shannon Hoag Russell High Student Special to the Villager RUSSELL - Russell High School (RHS) is anything but quiet. On any given day, at any time, there is almost always something going on. There is Band, Nerd Club, Cooking Club, Student Council, the GSA, sports and tons of trips! And, of course, there are classes going on as well. Recently, RHS held a Terry Fox Run to support cancer research. The whole school got involved! Students were separated into their houses - Exigo, Animus, Cura or Erubesco and participated in a variety of activities. Eamon Colvin
commented, “It was great to see the whole school come together with enthusiasm!” As well as becoming home to the grade sevens, RHS has become a new home to several international exchange students as well. Currently, there are four students from China as well as one student from Colombia and one student from Brazil. Daniela Velez, the student from Colombia, says, “I have been having a good experience, my English is much better, the people are so nice! I hope to meet a lot of people.” The fall sports are also in full swing - cross country running, soccer and basketball are keeping us active
outside the classroom, including a pep rally held at the girls’ first home basketball game. “I was so impressed and proud of our team’s effort in both games. They left it all on the court during the first game against STA,” says Rachel Hayton, a player on the team, “We were victorious and continued to beat Embrun High School in our second game. “I’m looking forward to playing the rest of the season with such a phenomenal team.” RHS is just getting started. Throughout the year, there will be many more events, activities and sports to look forward to!

PR paramedics honoured for outstanding service OTTAWA – Eight paramedics from the Department of Emergency Services of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell have been recognized for their exemplary service and were honoured during the Ontario Paramedic Association of Chiefs (OAPC) gala in Ottawa, on Oct. 4. Emergency Services Director Michel Chrétien and Administrative Deputy Chief Gilles Lacroix were each awarded with a medal bar, to be affixed to their previously received
Emergency Medical Services Exemplary Service Medal of the Governor General of Canada. Deputy Chief of Operations Louis Rathier, Administrative Deputy Chief Marc-André Periard, and paramedics Alfred Baaklini, Denis Dalrymple, Daniel Lacelles and Jeff Warnock were each decorated with the Emergency Medical Services Exemplary Service Medal of the Governor General of Canada. “I am extremely proud of our paramedics, their hard
work and their dedication to the people of Prescott and Russell, as much those who were recognized by the OAPC as all the men and women who serve or have served with zeal and efficiency,” Mr. Chrétien said that evening. Created on July 7, 1994, the Emergency Medical Services Exemplary Service Medal recognizes professionals who, in the provision of pre-hospital emergency medical services to the public, have performed their duties in an exemplary manner, one characterized
by good conduct. Recipients must have completed 20 years of exemplary service, including 10 years in the performance of duties involving potential risk. “I am consistently impressed with the level of service extended by this department and the tenacity of our paramedics, notably in light of our vast, rural territory,” stated François StAmour, Warden of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell. “These eight employees are exceptionally deserving of this national honour.”
Russell House has served up $12,000 to WDMH RUSSELL - The Russell House Pub, located on Mill Street in Russell, is proud to have been serving area residents for over 150 years. Edna and Terry Robinson, the Pub’s owners for over 20 years, are as much a fixture in Russell as their pub and are very committed to the communities they serve, hosting numerous fundraising events benefitting organizations and families in need. “In our line of work, we have the capacity to help,” Edna shared. “It’s really just our way of giving back.” As a result of this perspective, the Robinsons have hosted many golf tournaments, Trivia Nights, and other unique fundraising events both at their establishment and elsewhere.

Protecting wood surfaces against winter wear As the heat of the summer winds down and eventually gives way to fall rains, now is the perfect time to start thinking about applying a weatherproofing stain to your deck, fence and siding, to protect against the onslaught of the elements from the upcoming harshness of a Canadian winter. Contrary to popular belief, experts say the late summer or early fall is an ideal time to apply a protective stain to your exterior wood surfaces. According to Eric Lundquist, Director of Marketing for Stain & Specialty Products at Behr Process Corporation, â€œa lot of people are not aware that the spring is not the best time to apply stain to wood surfaces such as a wood deck. You have to give your surfaces the time to properly dry and recover from the excess humidity left by the ice and snow.â€? So to rejuvenate and protect this winter season, take advantage of a sunny afternoon to give wood surfaces a much needed face-lift. Find the quality products and advice to help you exe-
cute your task. Manufacturers, such as Behr Paints, are now making it easier for consumers to find
information and tips on wood staining projects with new in-store exterior wood
care resource centres. â€œIn The Home Depot, youâ€™ll find the newlyredesigned Behr Exterior
Wood Care Centre which simplifies the task of restoring, beautifying and protect-
ing decks and other surfaces by focusing on three steps: preparation, colour selection and the staining and finishing itself,â€? explained Lundquist. The interactive shopping experience includes an easyto-navigate monitor that lets users scroll through detailed product pages, inspirational imagery, application videos and frequently asked questions. Users can bring the vision of their ideal outdoor space to life by digitally colourizing a pre-set image of their surface with any stain or finish using WoodSmart by Behr. The manufacturer has also enhanced its suite of exterior wood care, stain and finish products to make it easier for consumers. Its premium line includes solid colour, semi-transparent and transparent weatherproofing wood stains and finishes utilizing a penetrating advanced 100 per cent acrylic resin formulated to protect decks, siding and fences year-round. - News Canada
Updates to make your neighbours green with envy Whether or not we want to admit it, we all want our home to look its best and be the envy of the neighbourhood. But if you think that keeping up with the Joneses comes with a big price tag, you can think again. With a little elbow grease and creativity, your property can be the talk of the town. Good First Impression Your home canâ€™t look great if you canâ€™t see it, so updating outdoor lighting is a great first step to achieving the best looking house on the block. Chances are your exterior porch lights or street lamp may be rusty or faded. Now, you can bring new life to your lighting with a single can of spray paint. Innovative products like the new Krylon Dual Paint and Primer is a one-step solution to easily transform any light fixture. Its unique
formula primes the surface for adhesion, durability and coverage, while delivering a high-quality finish. Best of all, Dual is now available in specialty finishes, such as hammered and metallic, that are perfect for adding an extra dose of style. Are you still looking for more illumination? Adding decorative lanterns to walkways or porches is an easy and inexpensive way to add charm and light, while adding some extra security. Often find these pieces can be found at yard sales, thrift stores or dollar stores, simply painted in a matching hammered or metallic finish giving a bright and stylish look. Quick Colour The front door is a focal point of your home â€“ especially with the added lighting youâ€™ve updated â€“ so be sure that your doors and
shutters are a vivid shade. If they have been dulled by years of sun and weather, itâ€™s time to update with paint. For metal doors and shutters, a variety of spray or bucket paints in your favourite hue can be applied, however, for plastic shutters, a special paint for plastic is an ideal choice as it will bond without the need for priming or sanding. A Tidy and Neat Yard No matter what the size of your front yard, a well manicured lawn is important to boosting your curb appeal. Simple one-weekend tasks like edging, trimming bushes and removing unsightly weeds can make a huge difference without a lot of work or cost. As the winter approaches, clean the gardens, add new mulch and place a light of ropes around some ever-
greens for an extra pop of colour for the upcoming white wonderland. Fill in the Blanks The final task to a great looking home that will have your neighbours lusting, is to repair or replace any elements that have deteriorated over time. Walk around the perimeter of your home to check for cracks in bricks or concrete, stains on the driveway or sidewalks, and loose shutters or downspouts. Sprucing up these basics will not only make a big difference to the exterior appearance, but protect your home from damages in the future. Now, with all the home decorating and hard work complete, your neighbours will be green with envy at your beautiful home and be trying to keep up with you. - News Canada

Star rating also applies to houses When most people hear the words Energy Star, they usually think about the rating of energy-efficient appliances. But, did you know that a newly built home can also be qualified as Energy Star? In 2005, Natural Resources Canada’s Office of Energy Efficiency developed the Energy Star for New Homes initiative in support of the Government of Canada’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Energy Star for New Homes promotes homes that are approximately 20 per cent more energy efficient
than a typical home. Each region has its own star ratings, dependent upon environment. Qualified homes are constructed by builders participating in this national initiative and these builders work with qualified energy advisors to incorporate energy efficient features into the design of their new homes. A qualified new home also reduces greenhouse gas emissions by approximately three tonnes per year. Typical features of an Energy Star qualified home include higher levels of insulation; high-performance windows, patio doors,
and skylights heat recovery ventilator mechanical system; and more efficient Energy Star heating, hot water and air conditioning systems, including new window designs, such as the Energy Star approved Super Magic® windows from Nuden Vinyl Products, of Ottawa. n older home can also become more energy efficant, if this seasons home improvement includes replacing old windows with the new. According to Nuden, the Super Magic® windows, can save you up to 25 per cent in energy savings becasue they offer Super A glass with low emission and argon gas educe energy transfer; ease of opening and closing for maintence and is airtight to eliminate
drafts. The window can also be frosted or grilled in a varuety of styles, to match the home decor, with the Terkar Formula Frame - a unique vinyl more durable than PVC. With Canadians spending an average of $1,147, annually just to use electricity in their home, imagine your total electrical costs after 30 years, it makes financial sense to choose a home that delivers energy savings over the long run. When you see the Energy Star label on a house, you know that it is an energy efficient home with lower energy demand. More Energy Star information can be found at www.newhomes.nrc.gc.ca

Make the “better safe than sorry” call before digging Trying to squeeze in as many outdoor projects as possible while the weather is good? Whether you’re planting a tree, changing your landscape or building a deck, if the job includes digging it also requires contacting Ontario One Call. There’s a network of natural gas pipes, telephone, hydro and television wires, as well as water and sewer connections buried underground. That’s why it’s the law to call before you dig. Homeowners and contractors must locate buried natural gas pipes before anyone puts a shovel in the ground. If you dig without locates, you could hurt yourself or others. You could also face expensive restoration costs and potential legal action. Ontario One Call is a free service, offered on behalf of its member utilities, including Enbridge Gas Distribution. Please call at least one week before you plan to dig. A locator will visit your property to locate and mark underground lines, and provide a sketch of any lines in your work area. You can contact Ontario One Call at www.on1call.com or 1-800-400-2255. They will ask for project details and will then contact member utilities for you. Remember, there may be other calls you need to make separately as currently not all utilities participate in Ontario One Call. However, in June 2012, the Ontario Underground Infrastructure Notification System Act received Royal Assent which will make it law for underground utilities to participate in a new mandatory “One Call” system. Ontario’s single, province-wide ‘One Call’ system will be the first in Canada and a safety enhancement that will help homeowners protect themselves and others from the dangers of digging without locates.

General tips for pool winterization Once those cool fall nights roll around, we stop thinking about swimming and pool maintance in favour of hockey and hot drinks. But to enjoy the pool for many years to come it is very important to shut it down properly. A poorly closed pool can result in big hassles in the spring due to cracked plumbing, broken equipment and swamp-like water. Call in the professionals if you don’t know how or don’t have the time to do it properly, as closing the pool properly will help to avoid unnecessary expenses in the spring. There are a few basic rules and include balancing the water chemistry, removing leaves and other debris, brushing the walls, and vacuuming to get rid of any scum line or algae from around the sides as leaving will create a green slug to deal with when the cover is pulled off. Most closing kits will include a winterizing shock, algaecide and stain and scale inhibitor. These should be added while the pump is still running to ensure a good circulation of chemicals through out the system. You don’t want to drain your pool completely over the winter, as the water in the pool keeps the vinyl liner in place and prevents creases or wrinkles. If your pool is fiberglass or concrete, draining it completely could cause it to crack or even rise up out of the ground., but some must be drained to 12 to 18 inches below the skimmer opening or just below the return lines,
so water will not enter the skimmer over the winter. Return lines should also be plug with winterizing plugs after you have blown the water out of them, as not to freeze, or disconnect them. It is also very important to drain the water from your pump, filter and plumbing. Pool heaters vary from solar to natural gas or propane. If you are unfamiliar with how to winterize your heater, follow the steps given by the manufacturer or contact the professionals. Some general general tips for a gas or propane heaters include shutting off the gas valve that supplies the heater. For heaters with a standing pilot, make sure that you turn the pilot off. Some heaters will have drain plugs that you can remove to let the water out of the grid. Others will require you to take off the unions and blow air through lines using the pressure side of your shop vac. Either way, you want to make sure that there is no water left in the grid that could freeze over the winter. If your heater is electronic ignition, turn off or disconnect the power supply. Remove the pressure switch to let water out and leave unplugged. While you do not need to cover your heater or bring it indoors over the winter, putting a tarp over it will offer protection from the elements. Protect your equipment and chemicals by not leaving outside over the winter, including a cold shed or garage. It is best to dis-
pose of any liquid products such as algaecide or liquid chlorine at the end of the season as they usually expire by the time spring rolls around. If your liquid products do freeze, dispose of them immediately, as they will be useless and may burst. This is also a good time to pack up your patio furniture and any loose deck items if you haven’t done so already. This will prevent them from blowing into the pool and damaging the cover. Placin the winter cover on and any water bags, is the second to last step. The cover should be in good repair with no holes or tears, as even the smallest hole can allow dirty water and debris to seep into the pool, resulting in algae and discolouration. If water bags are used, the entire perimeter of the pool should be covered without gaps, thus preventing wind damage. and should be filled half to three quarters to allow for expansion. If you have a snap-in winter cover that fits into a track on your coping, make sure that it fits in snugly and securely. Use liner lock in the track to tighten any loose areas. Lastly, secure the pool area against possible winter accidents with children or pets and relax knowing that the correct steps have been taken to make the pool less work and more fun in the spring. It also will save money in pool repairs from any damage such as staining, scaling, and cracked plumbing.

This, that and the other done right! Pamela Pearson Villager Staff RUSSELL - A Russell based general contracting company for the past twelve years, This & That Home Renovations has completed a variety of projects from bookcases to bathrooms, in both the commercial and residential sectors. Owner Mark Savage, began his career track in the late 1980’s when he apprenticed with Litton Systems Canada via the College of Humber Applied Arts and Technology Industrial Instrumentation Technician Program, in Toronto. As a result of working in this manufacturing environment of plant maintenance and stationary engineering, Savage developed a varied skill set, allowing him to move into commercial construction and property maintenance. It is this which ultimately brought Savage to the Eastern Ontario area in 1990.
Moving ahead a decade Savage, along with wife Anne Turcotte, decided to go out on their own Turcotte herself is an entrepreneur with her business, Dip and Dab Interior Painting. This & That offers clients from Kingston to Ottawa room makeovers, kitchen and bath renovations, window and door replacements, electrical, plumbing and can build fieldstone fireplaces, install or replace drywall, flooring, garage doors, decks, retaining walls and fences. Along with all that, and in partnership with Architectural Technician Alice Kelleher of Kelleher Design, Savage and his workshop are capable of creating and building custom millwork. He states “It is not the scale of the job, but the job itself that can be the greatest challenge. It is this that I enjoy the most.” Recently, Savage has taken on his own apprentice, Justin Macklin, a stu-
dent of Algonquin’s College’s Building Technician program which helps students to find entry-level employment in a variety if the construction industries including framing/formwork, door and window installation, interior or exterior finishing, junior estimator, assistant project management. The program is also known to be of value to those seeking a carpentry apprenticeship. The federally incorporated company has recently completed a basement finishing project, which included the installation of a new powder room ; a fire egress and the building of a legal basement bedroom. A couple current projects include mill working some new kitchen cabinets and a library unit. It is generally known that most homeowners, at one time will hire someone for repairs or renovations. Savage offers up some tips for those looking to do some home improvements - items that he discusses

If they don’t carry any, it might be a flag that something isn’t right. • Ask for references that you can visit for both recent jobs and completed warranty work. • Show, with pictures or
driving around the neighbourhood, the potential contractor an idea of what you are thinking in regards to style and scale of the project. This allows them to better determine if they understand the overall scope of the job. • Ask to visit a current work site. If the site is
clean, organized and safe, it is usually a good sign that the contractor is as well. This & That Home Renovations website is currently under construction, but the crew can be reached at 613-445-1146 / 613-880-4721 or email: ThisAndThatHomeRenova firstname.lastname@example.org.

Modern baths go high-tech Once upon a time, the bathroom was just a place to address your physical needs and practise your personal hygiene. But advances in technology are making our homes more efficient, but when it comes to technology, and this is one area that is often overlooked. “People often don’t think of the bathroom as a space where you can incorporate technology because so much of what we do there is routine,” says Delta Faucet tech expert, Marc Saltzman. “But with technology moving forward so quickly, it now touches every part of our lives, every member of the household, and every room in the home - the bathroom included. Indeed, new products with smart solutions make bathroom activities more efficient, accessible, and even less costly, such as technology that can greatly reduce the amount of water used at the sink.” A hands-free faucet not only saves water, it can also save time and reduce bathroom mess. Imagine your morning without having to struggle to turn on the water while your hands were covered in shaving cream? At deltafaucet.ca, take a look at the new Addison lavatory faucet as one example.

Even a simple bathroom fan timer switch can make you conscious of time spent in the shower and help save water every morning. All these time-saving tools and tips to help you make the most of your bathroom time, and nothing is better than that on an early Monday morning. -News Canada
Seasonal Trends Like fashion, interior design trends change with the seasons. Each month, different colours and patterns become the new “it” look, inspiring us to overhaul our home décor. Choose multi-functional products with hidden techand beautiful nology design to create a modern feel. Think televisions hidden in cabinets, speakers mounted behind the wall, and sleek kitchen faucets with a hidden sprayer. Technology that seamlessly blends into a space will always feel new. Consider incorporating accessories in shades such as clean green, saffron, ocean blue, and magenta to create a soothing atmosphere that will never feel tired. Adding sleek pieces in a colour that you’ll always love – rather than a
trendy colour – will make it your style, not to mention wallet-friendly. Update fabrics to those that feature timeless geometric designs, overlapping layers, or stripes. All of these can instantly make a home more contemporary without a large investment. Sleek and simple architectural details add maximum design impact and can become the focal point in any room. Take a Sunday drive through the fall colours to an estate auction to find pieces of furniture, with glass or painted wood, and materials like coloured acrylic, fibreglass, and chrome to add something different mirrors, Updating faucets or light fixtures can play a huge role in making your place look more modern. A small, and
inexpensive way to freshen the look of cabinets is to change its hardware. Nothing dates a space like clutter. Organize and store - or even neatly display - magazines, newspapers, and books. Electronic cords should be off the floor and not visible to keep your room looking neat and clean. Keeping up with the latest looks can be challenging, not to mention expensive. That’s why it’s important to remember that keeping your home décor modern isn’t so much about buying trendy furniture as it is about being practical. Investing in timeless pieces, suited to your lifestyle and taste, can create a calm living environment. -with files from News Canada

Winterizing the garden A well-maintained garden can add curb appeal to your property and increase the value of your home. This is true of every season. When frost is in the forecast, it’s time to get your garden ready for winter. A fresh layer of mulch or new plants will require some extra attention. Winterizing will help to also maintain curb appeal throughout the winter and decrease your spring workload. Once the ground has frozen gardeners can pre-
pare their garden by spreading a six inch layer of winter mulch, as mulching prevents soil erosion and protects any remaining plants from extreme changes in temperature. Spreading mulch too early may encourage rodents to nest in the soil. Continue watering freshly planted shrubs and plants. While plants enter a state of hibernation in the winter, watering right up until the first frost is crucial for any new additions to your garden.
Roses also need special care and there isn’t just one way to winterize them. How your rosebush fares in winter, depends on a number of factors - the weather, the plant’s location in the garden and, of course, the type of rose. Some varieties are more naturally hardy than others so, check with your nursery or horticaltural society if you aren’t sure . If there’s a graft on your rose bush, it’s a newer variety and probably not hardy. Cold weather can also
cause winter burn on fruit trees. When the tree is not able to absorb moisture from the frozen ground, it causes dehydration therefore burning the tree causing it to start the decaying processing of any remaining leaves and bark, branches and shoots - eventually killing it. Winterizing in the late autumn will protect the trees before the cold weather sets in, but is also early enough that the tree will benefit from good weather and sun. Pruning the tree in the
spring will limit growth and susceptibility during the winter, but do not prune trees that are less than one year old. Also, reduce the amount of fertilization in the late fall, using only half of what you would normally. Begin watering the plants less throughout the fall by wetting the soil until it is slightly moist rather than completely soaked. Cover the ground roots with mulch to prevent them from getting too cold and wrap the tree trunk with winterizing cloths to prevent it from becoming too cold or being damaged by the wind. Resist the urge to cut
back all your perennials. Some may lose their aesthetic appeal over the winter but there are several that maintain their beauty. Ornamental grasses, for example, provide texture in your garden during the winter months. Garden ponds are another item to take care of before freezing temperatures set in, as it will ensure not only the fish and plant life will survive, but so will the plumbing. Remember, with the right preparation, even a winter garden can create a beauty of it own. -News Canada

TRP Preventing window heat loss easily done READY MIX LTD. The kid’s teeth are chattering, the dog and cat are huddled together for warmth, and your feet are so cold that your spouse won’t come near you in bed. How can it possibly be this cold inside when the thermostat is set at 22 degrees? A likely answer could be that you’re losing heat from your windows and doors. Preventing heat loss only takes a small amount of time and materials to find and fix the problem and the rewarded could be 10-fold. First, detect the draft. Air leaks can be detected in a variety of ways from shining a light through spaces
around windows to look for gaps or cracks in the seams and molding. Holding a lit candle, barbecue lighter, or piece of tissue paper near the window seam, at a safe distance, move it along the length and width of the seam. If the flame or tissue flickers, there’s most likely an air leak. Next step is to seal the draft with latex caulking by removing any loose, peeling or broken caulk for a clean application of a new sealant. Seal window leaks with a fresh application of latex caulk and run a damp sponge along the seam to remove any excess. Another alternative is to
replace the weather-stripping located on the top and bottom of window sashes. Clean the areas where the weather-stripping will be applied, cut a piece of weather-stripping to the length of the sash, peel off the stripe tape and press the sticky side against the bottom of the sash. If your windows are old, or the draft persists despite following these steps, consider purchasing a Shrink and Seal Window Kit, available at most hardware stores. The clear film shrinks to fit your window, is easily installed with a hair dryer, and is barely detectable to the naked eye. - News Canada
Home heating alternatives As the chilly weather begins to descend upon us, energy-conscious Canadian homeowners are trying to find ways to stay warm without raising their home heating costs, and nearly two-thirds say they would likely invest in a quality heating system that was more expensive upfront if it saved them money in the long run, according to the Beautiful Heat survey, an online study of 1,003 Canadian homeowners. Many homeowners with traditional heating systems are becoming more energy conscious and are going to great lengths to avoid rising heating costs. Almost threequarters of respondents said they like to keep warm while watching their energy consumption, with 43 per cent adjusting their thermostat and a surprising 30 per cent wearing layers to keep warm. Experts say there is a whole other way to stay warm and comfortable with-
out putting on a sweater. “Radiant heat uses water’s own natural heat retention to spread warmth around the home, creating a warm uniform heat in every room,” says Hans Kircher, a heating ambassador for Beautiful Heat. “As a radiant system delivers a consistent even heat, homeowners can set their thermostats lower than with forced air systems, resulting in less energy usage and lower annual heating bills. It is the ideal choice for energy-conscious homeowners.” Unlike forced air, which forces hot air through intrusive ducts and vents into a cold space, a radiant heat system is engineered to bring uniform, even heat to every corner of every room through warm water flowing through a network of tubes in floors, walls and baseboards. As water is a natural heat-storage medium and able to hold almost 3,500
times more heat than air, a radiant system needs less energy to maintain the optimum temperature as it distributes heat around the home. Although a radiant system requires a greater upfront investment than traditional forced air heating systems, it provides numerous benefits. In addition to using less energy, radiant heat’s zone controls enable homeowners to lower the temperature in lower traffic areas of the home, thus saving energy and reducing heating costs. By eliminating the need for fans, blowers and vents, radiant heat provides a cleaner and healthier indoor air environment. And its ductless system gives homeowners flexible design options and clean lines uninterrupted by vents or registers, so furniture can be placed wherever homeowners choose. - News Canada

Home Center improves community with trees
Long a ‘go-to’ place for home improvement projects, Crysler Home Center repaid the favour with a community improvement. The business successfully landed a $2,500 corporate grant from Home Hardware, which is working in conjunction with non-profit entity Trees Canada to green up communities through the planting of trees. In this case, 21 hardwoods were planted at Crysler Community Park on Oct. 5.

Health Services Continued from the front In a release from the Ontario Pharmacists Association (OPA), they advise that this announcement will be only a “first step for pharmacists to deliver efficient and effective care and applaud McGuinty and Matthews for their leadership and support.” The OPA has also initi-
ated the new Injection and Immunization Certificate Program this month and acknowledged it’s regulatory body, the Ontario College of Pharmacists, stating “Together, we will ensure Ontarians receive top quality healthcare that is easily accessible.” Yesterday, Oct. 16, was the start date of the Eastern counties flu immunization clinics throughout the Eastern counties. Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, EOHU Medical Officer of Health is quoted “You need to get the flu shot every
year to be protected because the viruses that cause the flu do change frequently,” and continues that it can cause serious illness and even cause death in some. “The best protection against the flu is the vaccine. It’s free, safe and available for everyone aged six months and older.” At the time of publicatio, local pharmacy owners and the EOHU were unavailable for comment when asked for their reaction to the expansion of pharmacists services.

T-Wolves finish 1st in basketball regular season HAMMOND— The Russell High girls basketball team wrapped up their regular season with a pair of wins on Oct. 10 in Hammond. The results meant the Timberwolves finished the regular season in top spot and will now host the playoff tournament later today. The T-Wolves beat STFX 45-10 to open their day. They took a 16-7 lead into half time and never looked back. Chloe Park led the TWolves in scoring followed by Beth Hayton. Next, Russell played Embrun to finish off the round-robin play to determine final seeding for playoffs. Again, the T-Wolves took a big, 27-9 lead to half, and cruised past Embrun winning 49-22.This time is was Hayton as the team’s top scorer followed by Park.
Coach Laure Mitchell was pleased at the tempo her team set in the second half of their games. “ In both games, the girls brought more intensity in the second half, staying very strong on defense and playing hard right through to the end of the game. I’m very happy with the way they are playing, the way they encourage one another and their team spirit. As with this past tournament, we will continue to work hard on defense (it has been working well for us) and look for ways to include and improve on offensive plays.” The playoff tournament set for today, Oct. 17, will see St. Thomas, Vankleek Hill and Hawkesbury visit RHS with semi-finals in the morning and the championship in the afternoon.
STA football teams beat St. Joe’s CORNWALL— The St. Thomas junior and senior boys football teams travel to the perennial powerhouse St Joe’s Secondary School, in Cornwall on Oct. 12, looking to add more wins to their season totals. It would be no easy task as St. Joe’s is a AAA school, almost triple the size of STA. The Ravens not only battled their opponents but also harsh weather. It was a cold day with high winds and
bouts of snow. The junior boys found themselves tied at seven at the half. In the second, Kevin Lemore ripped off a touch down run and the junior Ravens took the game 14-7. The senior boys played solid defensive football in their game and were able to keep St Joe’s high-powered offence in check. Brina Lair and Brody Mitchell came up with time-

ly interceptions on defense helping their offense with field position. Patrick O’Neil, Shane Kelly, Mike Cogan and Alex Lair were flying all over the field making big hits on defense and making it difficult for the St. Joe’s offense to establish anything. St. Thomas struck first, with a touchdown pass from Kyle Clowater to Connor Letts, but missed the extra point. Later, Clowater hit Justin Hubers for his second passing touchdown of the
day and then the Ravens converted a two-point conversion, a run by Lair. Clowater later hit a rouge and the Ravens took the game 15-8. Due to a short roster, some players found themselves playing ironman football, playing both sides of the ball, offense and defense. Of particular note, Kelly, Mike and Dan Cogan, Lair and Taylor Ryan all contributed to the Ravens offensive and defensive schemes.
T-Wolves miss RHS undefeated at out on playoffs second tourney HAMMOND— The Russell High girls soccer team was back on the pitch, Oct. 9, when they travelled to Hammond to take on the host team, St. Francis Xavier, and the team that beat them last year to qualify for EOSSAA, Le Relais. The Timberwolves already had a strong opening to their season with a win and a tie in their first tournament and this one would be even more important because it would determine the seeding for the playoffs, held yesterday at Russell High. The T-Wolves began the day against St. FX. It was an even first half with the teams heading to the break scoreless. In the second half, Carley McKinnon-
Humphreys got the TWolves on the board with her third goal of the season. Later, Julia Lewis found the net extending the lead to 20. That was all the T-Wolves needed as Russell hung on for the 2-0 win. In their second game, the T-Wolves battled Le Relais to 0-0 tie. Coach Emily Olmstead gave credit to her team’s mental toughness for the way they dealt with the schedule at the tournament. “The girls played extremely well, considering we played first and last game, so there was a huge gap in the day.” The girls played their playoff tournament yesterday at Russell High, see next week’s Villager for complete coverage.
CASSELMAN— The Russell High Timberwolves senior boys soccer team were in Casselman on Oct. 10 for their final tournament of the regular season. The T-Wolves were going to need a pair of wins to qualify for the playoffs, but it was not to be as they came up just short, despite a win and a draw. The T-Wolves first game was against Le Relais. Russell came out and played a very strong game. Justin Samuels was the offensive star of the game scoring three beautiful goals. Liam Dupelle scored on a nice header and Eamon Colvin scored on a great solo rush from the midfield as Russell won 5-1. The T-Wolves second game was against the host school, Casselman, who were in top spot in the east division. Russell controlled the play for most of the game. The weather started to play a big factor in the second half as a very strong wind was at Russell’s back. That resulted in numerous chances and there were a couple of wild scrambles in front of Casselman’s net, but Russell couldn’t put one in and the game ended in 0-0 draw. RHS finished in 10th place and failed to make the playoffs as only the top eight teams qualify. Coach Randy McPhee gave his thoughts on the end of the season for the T-Wolves. “We played our best soccer over the last three games with a close, hard-fought game against St. Thomas and the win and the tie on Wednesday. Its unfortunate that we didn’t make the playoffs since we had some momentum going and we could’ve been a factor in the final tournament, but I’m really proud of the team and the way the played throughout the season.”
Sarah Shewan led the St. Thomas senior Ravens basketball team with 22 points in a close 41-40 win over Embrun on Oct. 10 in Hammond. This was the second tournament for the senior girls team. The Ravens also beat St. Francis Xavier 3514 on the day. The wins helped the Ravens qualify for the playoff tournament later today at Russell High. The Ravens will take on Vankleek Hill. Matte photo

Ravens get win and draw, advance to finals tournament CASSELMAN— The St. Thomas senior boys soccer team travelled to Casselman to play in a league crossover tournament on Oct. 10. The Ravens took on a pair of opponents, Casselman and Plantagenet, and controlled the tempo in both games resulting in no goals being conceded by the Ravens. STA began the day by taking on number-one ranked Casselman, from the east, and drew 0-0. STA had a strong game keeping the ball in the opponents end most of the
game, but just could not find the net. In their second game, STA found their stride and rolled to a 6-0 victory over Plantagenet. Goal scorers were, Vincent Belle, who converted a header from a corner kick, Eric Smith, with a blast in the low corner outside the 18-yard box, and Cameron Hunt, who put in a rebound. Connor Letts, was the sniper of the game with three goals. The senior boys will play a finals tournament later today.

Jets win three in a row; Vikings struggle at Classic OTTAWA— In a reversal of fortunes after their first two games, the Metcalfe Jets posted an 8-5 victory, Oct. 9, while being outshot by their opponents. The Jets looked to carry that momentum into the EOJHL Fall Classic Oct. 13-14. Jets 8 Canadians 5 The Ottawa Junior Canadians peppered 50 shots at Jets goalie Eric Drouin, while the Metcalfe fired 32 at Ottawa net-minder Coady Edwards. Playing their third straight road game to open the EOJHL season, the Jets found scoring from seven different players, and converted on two of three power play chances. Metcalfe never trailed in the game, leading 3-1 after one period, thanks to goals by Jordan Malette, Brett Varrin and Bryan Dalrympie. It was 4-2 following the middle frame as Thomas Mansbridge added one midway through the period, while the Jets were on the man advantage, making it 4-2 at that point. Ottawa closed the gap to 6-5 in the third period, before Metcalfe responded with two more goals to seal the victory. David Kilrea, Matthew Chennette, Dawson Fisher, on the power play, and Dalrympie’s second lifted the Jets to the 8-5 win. Jets 6 Tikis 1 Metcalfe faced the Brockville Tikis in game one, at the Classic, played on Oct. 13. After building a 3-1 firstperiod lead, the Jets continued to bring the pressure on a young Brockville squad and scored three more unanswered goals to cruise to a 6-1 victory. The Jets outshot the Tikis 36-20 dominating the posi-
tional play for most of the match. Rookie Devon Docksteader led the Jets on the score sheet with two goals and an assist. Matt Sheehan, David Kilrea, Scott Flemming and Jordan Mallette rounded out the goal scoring. Ryan McLaughlin picked up the win between the pipes for Metcalfe while Brockville net-minder Nathan Peters suffered the loss. Jets 3 Vikings 2 (OT) Returning for the second game of the event, on Oct. 14, Metcalfe found themselves in a battle with the Casselman Vikings. While this game featured many good scoring chances, it was a much more physical game with aggressive fore-checking from the Vikings. Despite almost doubling Casselman on the shot clock (38-20), Vikings goaltender Alexandre Michaud played a solid game turning away the Jets snipers on many quality opportunities, especially during the first two periods. Casselman opened the scoring midway through the first period on a power-play goal by Luc Forget. Metcalfe responded before the end of the period on a shot from the slot by Docksteader after a nice feed from Derek Varrin. The Vikings scored the only goal of the second period, Jordan Baptiste 47 seconds in, and lead 2-1. The tension mounted in the third as the play remained tight and both teams faced several short-handed situations. The Jets added to the drama and tied the game with eight minutes left in the frame on an unassisted power-play goal by Matt Sheehan, sending the game to overtime.
RPS earn trio of 1st-place ribbons at PCPS meet
Over 40 Russell Public School cross-country runners joined 10 other schools in Vankleek Hill on October 5 for the PCPS Cross-Country Meet. Strong performances were put in by all participants, with three RPS runners taking home first place honors, above, Kate Thompson (9-10 girls) and Kristin Huisman, left, (7-8 girls). Jacob Hill (7-8 boys) also finished in first place.

With the game looking like it may end in a draw, Metcalfe brought the play into the Casselman zone with less than thirty seconds on the clock. After gaining possession of the puck, deep in the zone, Mansbridge fed the puck back to defenseman Marc Hough who was unprotected at the blue line. Hough released a quick short-side shot that handcuffed Michaud and secured the win for Metcalfe. Jets goaltender Drouin picked up the win kicking out 18 of 20 Vikings shots. The Jets were in Almonte last night and finally play their first game of the season in Metcalfe on Oct. 19 against Clarence. They will also host Gatineau on Oct. 21. Old Viking comes back to haunt former team Casselman’s other game this weekend was their first match of the Fall Classic against Arnprior where they met a familiar foe, goaltender Kyle Lamothe, who played for the Vikings for most of last season. Joel Adam put the Vikings up 1-0 with less than a minute to go in the first period, but that would be the end of their offence. Arnprior quickly answered seconds into the second period, then took the lead with 1:41 to go in the period. The Packers went on to add three unanswered third-period goals and took the win 5-1. Both power plays went 0-7 in the game. Casselman outshot Arnprior 36-18 in the loss. Phillippe Quesnel took the loss in the Vikings net, Lamothe earned the win for the Packers. Casselman hosts South Grenville on Oct. 18.

Panthers capsize Vikings; slashed by Cougars EMBRUN— The weekend started out as expected for the Embrun Panthers with a win at home on Oct. 12 against Papineauville. However, the Panthers were shocked on Oct. 13, when they were beaten by the then winless Cougars in Vankleek Hill. Panthers 5 Vikings 2 goals Short-handed proved to be the difference in this one as the two teams combined for three in the game. After a scoreless first period, the Vikings opened the scoring two minutes into the second. That lead last for 1:46 when the Panthers got it back, while Papineauville was on the advantage. Francis Legault scored unassisted to make it 1-1. The Panthers took the lead later in the frame when Ryan Kemp found the net from Eric Garrioch and Mathieu Gregoire. With just 1:15 to go in the period, Embrun
made it 3-1 when Charles Antoine Labonté scored, from Legault and Matt Eberley. In the third, Embrun extended the lead to 4-1 with their second short-handed goal of the game. Again, Legault found twine, this time from Labonté. Legault completed his hat trick, at even strength with 6:07 remaining, from Garrioch and Quinton Gill making it 5-1. The Vikings got one while shorthanded in the dying seconds, but this game went to the Panthers 5-2. Philip Eberley picked up the win in the Panthers net. Panthers 2 Cougars 5 It was a reversal of fortunes for the Panthers the next night in Vankleek Hill as the Cougars, who started the season 0-4, shocked the Panthers 5-2. The Panthers started strong with a goal midway through the first period by
Garrioch, from Kemp and Labonté, but were unable to maintain pressure. Vankleek Hill tied the game with five minutes left in the first and the teams went to the break deadlocked. The Cougars put up a pair of goals in the second to lead 3-1 after 40 minutes. Embrun made it 3-2 with a goal in the first minute of the third period, off the stick of Shawn Ennis, with assists going to Labonté and Francis Lafond. However, before they could get any closer, the Cougars added another two and earned their first win of the season 5-2. Eberley was back in the Panthers net, but took the loss. The Panthers remain second in their division behind St. Isidore, who have yet to lose this season. This week the Panthers host La Peche on Oct. 19 and then visit Rockland Oct. 21.
Midget B2’s open season with win RUSSELL— With no juvenile team in Russell this season Peter Kruys was looking to finally having a winter off after 44 years on the bench. That retirement lasted about three weeks. He read that the Russell Minor Hockey Association was icing five midget teams, but only had two coaches. So after some deliberation he decided to forsake the LayZ-Boy and get involved yet again. Kruys was assigned the midget B2 team and brought his sponsor of 19 years, Russell IDA Pharmacy, along for the ride. On Oct.11, the Russell IDA Warriors midget B2 team stepped on the ice at Barrett Arena for their first game, after only one practice. The home team, Leitrim Hawks B3, scored the game’s opening goal at 4:55 of the first period. The Warriors evened the score on the power play with 3:41 left in the second period when defenseman Josh Mann passed the puck across to Rory Friend, at the
side of the net. His first shot was blocked, but he quickly put the rebound into the net. Josh Kelly also earned an assist on the goal. In the third period, Steven Laramee put the Warriors ahead with another powerplay marker at 11:16 when he deked around the defense and had the opportunity to get three shots away on net and finally getting the puck over the line. Andrew Lamoure and Kelly picked up the assists. At the 7:20 mark, Laramee scored again when he tipped in a pass from Travis Smith, who was set up by Riley Mills. With just 47 seconds remaining in the game, Friend scored his second goal with Mills picking up his second assist and Scott Ryan his first. Moodie Young turned away 14 of the 15 shots he faced in the Warriors’ net, while his teammates directed 29 shots at his opponent. The team has a pair of games coming up this week, on Oct. 18 they are home to Lietrim and visit Orleans on Oct. 23.
