Fair a merry-goround of activity on how to milk a cow. Friday included the Jersey show, exhibit halls opening for viewing, and midway rides started to become busy. Mayor J.P. St. Pierre defended his 2011 title at the Celebrity Milking Contest with almost three cups of milk in one minute. The day closed with the arena and area filling with concertgoers who saw Greg Hanna rock the stage and April Wine strum some classic favorites. The new Agri-Village was a great success with local groups and business coming together under one roof from wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to the Russell Historical Societys display and quilt draw. Pies and sandwichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made by the Russell Village Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institute were also sold. The curling club rink also hosted horticultural exhibitors and winners. Culinary Arts, Handcrafts and baking were in the upper arena hall, where ribbons seem to be everywhere. On Saturday, attendance was down due to pouring rain and high winds but events still took place such as the 4-H Achievement Day, Rock The Arts Puppet Show, Fan Jam, Junkyard Symphony and Gamut played after a mud encrusted Demolition Derby, but the much anticipated Fall Cutting Horse Competition had to be cancelled. Seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day on Sunday began after the filling bellies full of pancakes and ham at Continued on page 3

Pamela Pearson Villager Staff RUSSELL - Despite a rainy and cold Saturday, the 154th Russell Fair , Sept. 7 to 9, was a great success, seeing approximately 10,000 fair goers come through the gates. On the evening of Sept. 6, at the Kinnaird Arena, Bert Vedder, this years RAS President, welcome neighbouring fair boards and members of local Womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institutes cut the official fair ribbon. The opening also had WANTED Acrobats, a four person trampoline show demonstrated how they would amaze the crowds as they bounced to heights unimaginable by the average person. The acrobats did just that multiple times over the days. Even, Past-President Tony Baas tried some tumbling moves on the trampoline with some encouragement from Vedder. A beautiful, sunny Thursday welcomed those working the fair to tie up some loose ends and judging of exhibits began. The Black and White Open Heifer Show took place in the afternoon, Deal or No Deal and the Truck Pull opened the evening. Karaoke Fair Fest could be heard until 11 p.m It was also during the night that Daisy The Cow was stolen from the education tent and is unfortunately still at large. The interactive cow was to provide students, as part of education dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s From Start to Finish exhibit,

flat screen television set up, but that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taken.â&#x20AC;? Banks continued to tell The Villager, that the cow is expected at four other upcoming fairs in the month, and will now, at a large expense, have to be replaced quickly. Continued on page 2

EDITORIAL The good, the bad and the fair So went the 154th Russell Fair this past weekend. It was a celebration of rural life in an increasingly urban world. The good included the traditional livestock competitions and the opportunity for the 4-H club youth to show off their Head, Health, Hands and Heart as they paraded their calves and sheep. The crafty among us also filled the arena with their creations and there were lots of goodies in there too. The midway is always good fun for the little ones, and the trampoline show took a good bit of skill. The tractor pull, truck pull, and demolition derby were good for those who like the noise and waiting for something to go bang. But balance is important, so naturally, there was some bad. This year the attendance took a beating when it rained on Saturday. The midway had issues with rides, notably the Ferris wheel wasn’t turning too much, and there were far too many parked bumper cars. The long lines to get tickets on Sunday were depressing for everyone even before they got in line for the rides and the much-anticipated fall cutting competition had to be cancelled because the outdoor arena was to muddy. The theft of an educational prop, the Travelling Farmer’s education cow, on Thursday night reminded us that there are bad people out there too, and the kids were the ones who ultimately lost out on this part of their Education Day. The fair was more than fair though. This year saw Greg Hanna, a headline act in his own right, lead Friday’s music lovers into some classic April Wine. The talented showed off their skills in the arena for the next days too, and the band stand and refreshment area were always busy with shows. Those with wares were to be found wherever it was dry, under tents and in the Curling Club agri-village, where the Women’s Institute had food that was not fried. The classic cars and the antique equipment display are always popular for those nostalgic for equipment where you could see how it worked and did not need computers. And the cake made for the fair was an edible piece of art. Volunteers are critical to the fair, and hearty congratulations go out to the committee and their teams for making this event a success again. The 155th Russell fair is already being planned and I look forward to another 400 plus pictures then for The Villager archives. Pamela Pearson

Wanted: cow on the lam It wasn’t just nasty weather that put a bit of a damper on the 154th Russell Fair. In fact, rain, wind and cold only impacted Saturday at the fair, reducing numbers of visitors checking out the midway and other outside attractions. Adequate to excellent weather on other days – especially Sunday - made up for it, with throngs of fairgoers rendering the midway almost impassable. Oh boy, it was cold Saturday! You could see your breath. And wet. Equine events had to be cancelled Saturday and Sunday because of water in the show ring. And windy! Signs were getting blown around and marquees were being seriously buffeted. But that didn’t stop the Saturday night demolition derby crowd, not the drivers who were chugging around in rim-deep mud nor the spectators who were getting some of that mud flung up on them in the stands. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I got to the bleachers expecting to see sparsely occupied seating only to find that it was packed. Demo derby enthusiasts are obviously a hardy

bunch. An announcement was made during the derby that brings me to my second, more serious damper. The crowd was informed of the mysterious loss of an artificial cow that was to be used Friday to demonstrate milking in the education tent attended by hundreds of students. However, sometime after midnight Thursday, persons unknown walked away with the cow which, to my knowledge at this week’s deadline, hasn’t been seen since. While there may be no connection, the theft occurred after most patrons had departed the beer pavilion. Putting two and two together, a lot of people who heard the story Friday – including me – assumed it was the work of overrefreshed party’ers. We figured the demonstration cow would show up on a rooftop, in the back of fair board president Bert Vedder’s pickup, or mingling among live animals in the fair dairy barn, allowing the incident to be dismissed as a harmless prank. But the $8,000 cow was-

National Tree Day Cindy Saucier Special to the Villager National Tree Day will serve as a celebration for all Canadians to appreciate the great benefits that trees provide us - clean air, wildlife habitat, reducing energy demand and connecting with nature. This summer, with the intense heat, we all realized the benefits of trees. Trees cool us, our homes, and saved my lawn. National Tree Day was a motion presented by a private members bill presented by Royal Galipeau, M.P. at the urging of Tree Canada. This is also National Forest Week. National Tree Day is a celebration of trees in your community. A celebration will be held in Ottawa at Andrew Haydon Park on Sept. 25 at 10 a.m. Schools can also get involved by visiting the website at www.nationaltreeday.ca.

We all know the benefits of trees! In Russell Township we are sitting well below the average of required tree coverage. We are at approximately 5 per cent and we need 30 per cent just to sustain wildlife. We need to protect our old-growth trees. Every time a tree goes down, even if a young one is planted, we lose that canopy. Developers also need to think about this as some are built so close together that a tree could not be planted as it would cause foundation damage. An aerial shot of Russell Township showed we are in dire straits. Other communities were highlighted showing a well-greened area. Trees protect shorelines, decrease soil erosion, protect crops, promote pollination, and act as a buffer and water purifier. There would be less snow drifting if there

n’t returned in time for education day or since, causing much stress to the young lady in charge of it. She represented a partnership of several agricultural organizations that offered a $500 reward for its safe return. She also thought it was a prank, pointing out that an expensive television monitor in her booth had been left untouched. She said the cow was an essential part of the display and was to be the centrepiece of several other events this fall. In between the bump and grind, the demo derby announcer asked for the cow to be turned in, no questions asked. The Russell Agricultural Society executive is hoping those responsible will do the right thing and help alleviate the strain this prank gone awry caused for one young lady and the groups she represents. As a gag, this was a flop. It tarnishes the reputation of the village and of the fair. Returning the cow will help alleviate some of that negative feeling and allow the item to continue being used for educational purposes. Speaking of the sea of mud where the derby was held, almost miraculously it was restored to fully serviceable condition for Sunday’s tractor pulls. While some doubters thought it would be impossible to fix, Chris Griffith said “just watch me” and went to work with some of the his family company’s equipment, assisted by Sunday’s drying sun. As a result, the tractor track was A-1. Overall, this year’s fair was a runaway success.

Although I missed Wednesday’s well attended official opening, I was on hand for karaoke and the truck pull Thursday, part of the day Friday, attended the April Wine/Greg Hanna show Friday night, part of Saturday and Saturday night, and almost all day Sunday beginning with the free pancake breakfast. Is it just me or does the thought of a free breakfast get everybody out of bed earlier than usual Sunday morning? I didn’t check to see what happened later, but at about 8:20 a.m., I was among the first to arrive. Although contestants were few, the karaoke contest was a hit. Daughter Victoria tossed her name in the hat at the last minute and came away with second place and $150 for her efforts in belting out “Chain of Fools” and “Black Velvet”. I’ve got to say I wasn’t really an April Wine fan back in the day. My musical preferences were – and still are - more blues, funk, and Motown. But it was a great time along with some family members listening to these vintage rockers who put on a powerhouse show. With a repertoire of good original songs and an engaging disposition, opening act Greg Hanna, a country rocker who originates from Finch, could easily have been the headliner. Continued on page 5

Gillette genetics on the block Nelson Zandbergen Special to The Villager EMBRUN — The international dairy community will have its eyes on Embrun this month when one of the most prominent Holstein breeders in Canada hosts a live auction of more than 100 top-flight cattle for the first time in 15 years. Recently in the headlines as the home of the greatest lifetime milk-producing cow on the planet, Ferme Gillette expects 1,000 visitors from around the globe to attend the Sept. 21 sale in person, with many others bidding online through Internet simulcast. Dubbed Gillette Visions 2012, the auction block will feature 106 finest examples of the breed, including approximately 45 animals other respected from Holstein producers around the country. The occasion will also double as an open house for Gillette, allowing the public a chance to gaze upon two of the operation’s celebrity bovines: the Guinness Book of World Record-holding ‘Smurf’ as well as the 2011 Canadian Cow of the Year, Gillette Blitz 2nd Wind. The latter cow “is pretty much the star of the sale,” says a smiling Eric Patenaude, 30, a fifth-generation member and partner of the Patenaude family farm whose corporate moniker “Gillette” derives from the

merger of his grandfather and grandmother’s first names — Gilles and Lorette. “She’s the dam of many great bulls that have come out,” Patenaude says of 2nd Wind and her burgeoning line of elite male offspring leased to EastGen and GenerVations for semen production. “We’ve had much success over the past couple of years with the 2nd Wind family,” he remarks, seated in a barn office with walls covered in red show ribbons. He notes such distinguished bulls as Gillette Windbrook, Winhammer, Stanley Cup, Willrock and Wild Thing yielded by their famous travelling mother, recently returned to Ontario from “doing some IVF [In Vitro Fertilization] work in the States.” Of course, neither 10year-old 2nd Wind nor 16year-old Smurf — full name Gillette Emperor Smurf — will go under the gavel of auctioneer Pierre Boulet on the 21st. These accomplished Gillette cows are only for the looking — and the marvelling. (Patenaude even suggests the more elderly Smurf — whose image now adorns the sign outside the 120head tie-stall barn housing the best of Gillette’s 600 milking cows — is destined to be buried in a prominent spot on the farm one day.

This month, he adds, her record production of sevenplus tanker truckloads’ worth of milk will be officially published in Guinness’s 2013 edition.) Sale animals will represent the highest quality Holsteins available anywhere, right up to the very crème de la crème of blackand-whites. If not Ferme Gillette’s own stock, the cows will otherwise hail from some of the most respected breeders around the country on consignment. “We wanted to take in some consignments from people who have bought from us in the past, and have believed in us. And some of these consignments are topnotch, some of the best genetics in Canada.” A brief sampling of consignors comes up with such recognizable Ontario and Quebec names as Sunnylodge of Chesterville, Midlee of Osgoode, Knonaudale of Crylser, Greenlane, Misty Spring of Little Britain, Comstar of Victoriaville, Brabantdale of Navan, GenerVations of Campbellville and Group Génibeq. “It’s the right place for someone to find themselves a bull mother, a show cow, a 4-H heifer or an all-around milking cow,” says Patenaude of the coming event. “Some could sell for over $100,000, and some could sell for $5,000,” he

Eric Patenaude stands at the Ferme Gillette sign featuring an image of the farm’s world record-holding milk producer, ‘Smurf.’ Her accomplishment will be officially chronicled in the 2013 Guinness Book of World Records being released this month, according to Patenaude. Visible in the background is the newly installed turkey-curtain side-ventilation system at the farmstead’s tie-stall barn housing the operation’s most elite cattle. Eighty-two-year-old Gilles Patenaude, Eric’s grandfather, handled that project himself. Zandbergen photos.

adds. The last Gillette Visions event in 1997 auctioned 168 animals and grossed over $1.3-million. “We don’t do it that often because it’s a lot of work. But this one has come together really well, so maybe in the future we can do it more often,” he says, raising the possibility of reprising the sale every five years or so going forward. They’ve brought in sale co-managers to assist the 2012 edition, with Mark Smith and Yvon Chabot jointly managing in cooperation with Louis Patenaude, another Ferme Gillette partner. The sale will also offer two “first choice” calves that have yet to be born

— an increasingly popular sale technique, according to Eric Patenaude. In one lot, bidders will vie for first pick of four current pregnancies, while the other lot represents first pick out of eight calves now in utero. It’s a good time to offer high-quality dairy cows for sale, he says. “For that type of genetics, the market is great.” Potential buyers will be flying in from the U.S., France, Switzerland, Japan and Australia, he says. Bidders who participate in person will watch the proceedings from seats set up inside a converted machine shed personally refurbished by 82-year-old Gilles Patenaude, a dentist who steered the family farm

— founded in 1878 by his grandfather — into the realm of purebred Holsteins a little more than 50 years ago. In a first for a Ferme Gillette auction, this one take place online, too, through the services of holsteinworldproductions.com, linked to the sale website at fermegillette.ca. Preview videos have been posted to the site. A public breakfast kicks off the morning of the sale, 8-10 a.m., sponsored by Embrun Co-op, inside the sprawling shed at 1623 St. André Rd. The sale itself begins at 10:30 a.m. Sponsors for the day also include CIBC Embrun, Semex, Jason Donnan Hoof Trimming and Merial.

OTW residents petition for lower speed limit

THE OSGOODE TOWNSHIP HISTORICAL SOCIETY AND MUSEUM INVITES YOU TO

HARVEST-FEST! Come build a scare-crow, try some hot apple cider, freshly roasted corn, pumpkin pie, and have fun participating in wheel-barrow, 3-legged, and potato sack races! Pack a lunch and have a leisurely picnic on our expansive lawn, and let the children enjoy some fresh air on the playground!

A solar-powered speedometer informs drivers of their speed as they enter the Olde Town West subdivision. The information is also collected as part of a study on traffic speeds in the development and if they need to be dropped to a suggested 30km/hr. So far this is the only sign be used in the Russell study.

Pamela Pearson Villager Staff RUSSELL Township Council has given direction to its administration to conduct a study of the streets in Russell’s Olde Towne West subdivision, behind Home Hardware, regarding a reduction in speed limit from 50 to 30km/h, after a petition from residents was received. A neighbourhood group calling itself the Olde Towne West Community Development (OTWD) first approached the municipality with a petition when Jacques Lorti was the Public Works, Parks and Recreation Director. Jeremie Bouchard has since taken over the position, bringing the petition package, received by township on July 12, forward at the Aug. 7 Committee of the Whole Meeting. It was also at this meeting that council approved the implementation of a new Speed Zone Reduction Policy for the municipality’s roads to establish a process for filing and review of changes and/or for determining the speed limits. The policy was created after numerous requests from residents throughout the municipality. OTWD, to date, has been the largest group to bring this request for neighbourhood speed reduction to the table. The package, presented to Bouchard by OTWD representative and resident Kerry-Lynne Hall included an introductory letter to Bouchard regarding the purpose of the request and was followed by an Official Community Petition with six pages of signatures.

PJ Pearson photo

In addition, appendices showing statistics associated vehicle/pedestrian with injuries and City of Ottawa documentation regarding their instituting of policies associated with the city’s 2008 Transportation Master Plan, which provides local residential communities with a process to easily change their development speed limits to 40km/hr with only a required 66-per-cent level of support. The OTWD has 92-percent neighbourhood support and is not asking for the municipality to set precedence but only to follow suit with that of our neighbours in Ottawa. The official community petition also notes that vehicles travelling along straightaway streets such Gaslight Way and Pebble Mill Lane tend to speed up as there is no direction to do otherwise. Once data has been collected, Bouchard stated that he will go back to council and make a recommendation if a speed change needs to be made in the subdivision. He also noted that that radar signs are currently installed in the subdivision to collect data. However, when this story went to print, only one solar powered speedometer, at the subdivision entrance, was seen in place and Bouchard had not commented when asked if others will be place at other locations to collect data in all areas of the neighbourhood. Bouchard hopes to go back to Council before the end of 2012.

Heelers wheel in $70,000 Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff WINCHESTER — The first annual Heel ‘n Wheel drew nearly 100 participants who raised a total of just over $70,000 by walking and cycling toward Winchester, where cancer care services at the local hospital were the focus of the effort. “It’s amazing for a first year event. What else can you say?” remarked Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation chair Arnold Scheerder, who described the outcome as “far beyond expectation. “Next year’s going to be even better, I’m sure.” Schreeder also extolled the 14 children who took part in the event. Despite sudden downpours and heavy gusts of wind in the afternoon, the intrepid cyclists and walkers left from marshaling points in Finch, Osgoode, Russell and South Mountain. The event was inspired by last year’s folding of Ottawa’s annual Weekend to End Women’s Cancer — now defunct — leaving stalwart local members of the Winchester Hospital Heelers team in need of a new fundraising activity.

All told, 12 teams took part in the locally based replacement event benefiting WDMH’s Cancer Fund. But the Heelers — dispersed among the four takeoff points — naturally dominated the 2012 total, with $38,000 raised. Russell’s Walking Wounded came second by bringing in just over $6,700. Last year, more than 4,000 patient visits took place at WDMH to have a use the colonoscopy, Ontario Breast Screening or have Program, chemotherapy treatments. In addition, many surgical procedures occur at WDMH, including biopsies and cancer surgeries. Thirty-five volunteers also assisted the Heel ‘n Wheel effort, supervising pit-stops along the routes and other support activities. “We’re getting really positive feedback from all of the people,” said Christina Enright, the Foundation’s manager of Community Engagement, at the arrival point inside the Winchester Lions Hall. Organizers moved the final stop away from the field opposite the hospital because of the inclement weather. “I think we’ve adapted to

the weather, and we’ve adapted to everything,” said Enright. Registrations were being accepted right up to the morning of the event, and the $500 minimum sponsorship level for adults ($400 for children) was waived two weeks earlier to help bolster numbers. Building on this year’s start, organizers also used the occasion to actively solicit registrations for the 2013 edition, Enright said, giving them plenty of advance time to meet the minimum next year. “A lot of people called us in the last six weeks, and they wanted to be involved but they didn’t have enough [collected],” she explained. “It was a great learning experience.” Wilda Marriner of Chesterville was part of the Wii Not Fit team that left from Finch and raised $3,260. The wind may have buffeted her group but didn’t hold them up. “We took two steps, and then we took two steps backward,” she laughed. Marlene Pyper of Winchester walked in from Osgoode. “I have a torn tendon in my foot, and I really shouldn’t have done it, but I’m incredibly stubborn,” she said.

Recognized as the top fundraising team in the first annual Heel ’n Wheel on Sept. 8 were members of Russell’s Walking Wounded, who collected $6,705. From left are Jason McKenny, Sienna Benson, Darlene Benson and Joanne Giles, along with WDMH Foundation executive director Troy Cross. Zandbergen photo

Local Paralympic coach wraps up his games Darren Matte Villager Sports LONDON — The Paralympic games are in full swing in London, but for one local coach his games have already wrapped up. Jeff Dunbrack, who resides in Embrun, is the head coach of Canada’s Paralympic rowing team, whose competition finished on Sept. 2. While the team did not have the results they were hoping for, Dunbrack sees it as a learning experience as the team moves forward. “It was a great competition for our athletes to compete in. Great Britain is a really good rowing nation and for our rowers to compete in front of large crowds that make a lot of noise, that was special. Overall, we did ok. Canada needs to step it up if we want to stick with everyone else and be a leading nation in the sport. We didn’t get slower from previous competitions, everyone else just got faster.” Canada’s Mixed Coxed Four team, of David Blair, Meghan Montgomery, Victoria Nolan, Anthony Theriault and Kriten Kit (cox), finished third in their heat and third in repechage. They were then placed in the ‘B’ final, which they won. “The other teams made changes and just flew ahead. It was nice to win the ‘B’ final and go out with a win, but you always want to win medals.” Canada’s other entry was Joan Reid, who fin-

ished sixth overall in the women’s single sculls. This was not the first Games that Dunbrack had been a part of. Dunbrack came from a rowing past himself where as an individual he captured Ontario and Canadian University titles. He obtained a degree in Physical Education from Brock University and then began coaching with the St. Catharines Rowing Club. He moved up to Ottawa and looked to continue working in sports. At first, he got involved with the Canadian Adaptive Waterskiing team, then took a position with the Canadian Wheelchair Basketball team as the High Performance Coordinator. During that time, Dunbrack and the team went to Beijing and took silver at the 2008 Paralympic Games. In late 2009, he returned to his sport of rowing, becoming the Head Coach of the Canadian Paralympic rowing team. “It is always nice to work in the sport you know the most. I have a good relationship with Rowing Canada and have had our Paralympians train and do workshops with our Olympians.” When Dunbrack came into the program he changed the culture. The change seemed to work as in 2010, he oversaw the first gold medal for Canada at the World Championships in New Zealand. “It was a lot of work, but it was very

rewarding. It meant a lot to me because it was my sport and my program.” Dunbrack’s team went on to capture silver at the 2011 World Championships in Slovenia. Leading up to the London Games, Dunbrack was excited because he finally got the chance to participate in the sport he was so passionate about. He had the team compete at the World Cup in June, before training for July and early August in southern Ontario. Then, he shook things up as he brought the team for a training camp in Portugal. The team trained with the Irish Paralympic Rowing team in preparations for London. Overall, Dunbrack says that the experience of the games was a good one, even though his team failed to medal. Dunbrack will get the opportunity to be part of future Paralympic Games as he is moving from his position with the rowing team to become the Canadian Paralympic Committee’s High Performance Coordinator. “I am very excited as I will be able to be part of both the Socchi and Rio Games. I love working with Paralympics Canada, it really is rewarding and I just like to see people win.” With Dunbrack’s new position, he should get the opportunity to see Canadian Paralympians win multiple meadals at both future Games.

RUSSELL— This year marks a special milestone for the Terry Fox Run, Sept. 16, in Russell/Embrun as it will be the 30th year the event is held. The run, organized locally by a group of volunteers, has continued to see it be a success and hopes for another great year in 2012. Cindy Saucier has run the group since 2001. She says that once again this year, they will be aiming to bring in a large sum of funds for cancer research. “We try to keep the run alive and fresh. We were very happy that the Army Run date, that has coincided with the Terry Fox Run for the past few year, changed to the following weekend. We are encouraging those who are taking part in the Army Run to use the Terry Fox Run as a warm up.”

Saucier hopes that the event can equal or best the 225 participants that it saw last year with hopes of again equaling their high from 2006 when 400 participants took part. In addition to the record turn out in 2006, the event in Russell/Embrun also raised more money that year then they had ever done in the past, as a total of $18,500 was brought in. Last year, the event still managed to raise over $15,000 a number that Saucier would like to see equaled or bettered this year. The event begins at 9:30 a.m. in Russell behind Mother Teresa Catholic School. It will go along the fitness trail ending in Embrun at the Embrun trail entrance. The distance is approximately 10 KMs and partici-

pants can walk, run, roller blade or bike and the course is wheelchair accessible. Even though the course is 10 KMs, Saucier says that people can come and do as much as they want and do not need to do the full course. Also this year, there will be a Zumba warm up, face painting and music at the end of the course. The run also plans a memory and survivor board. Saucier says they are additionally in the works of making a dedication for this year’s run. This is the 32nd year of the Terry Fox Run in Canada. Last year, across Canada, 225 communities participated in the event and raised $12 million for cancer research. The event prides itself on no entry fee and no minimum pledge so that it is open to everyone and all donations.

Champions crowned as speedway season ends

Dale Planck won the 125-lap Canadian Nationals Series race and Cornwall Motor Speedway season championship for the Modified division with a win on Sept. 2. Planck, from Cortland, NY, is a former champion already at the speedway. In other divisions, Ryan Stabler (Cornwall) won the Pro-Stock race and Joey Ladouceur (Alexandria) finished second, which was enough for him to win the championship, Dylan Evoy (Brockville) won the Sportsman finale, Chris Herbison (Mallorytown) was fourth and held on for that championship and Derek Cryderman (Ingleside) finished first in the semi-pro race with Benoit Dubois (Lochaber-Ouest, Qc) taking the championship. The speedway had one more event, Sept. 9, with the Enduro race. Photo courtesy S. Lauwers

Raiders U11 girls hard work pays off Kevin Curran Special to the Villager Drawing players from Embrun, Kenmore, Metcalfe and Russell, the Russell Raiders U11 Girls exceeded all soccer expectations during 2012. The girls started training last February in the Mother Teresa Gym and worked twice a week all summer improving foot, passing and shooting skills. While the emphasis was always on fun, the Raiders were encouraged to work hard and not to be afraid to make mistakes and get messy (or Messi to you soccer people). The girls took on all soccer challenges and played with pure heart. Starting at the back, goalkeeper Athena Jacques (Keep) was a solid backstop who ended up leading the league in shutouts. Kahlan Baak (Special K) and Megan

Maisonneuve (Me-gan) at sweeper held the backline with a fierce defence, limiting other teams’ scoring chances. Fullbacks Holly Sequin (Hollistar), Melodie Patenaude (Meli-Melo), Ellen Reaney (Ellen the Red) and Sabrina Gregoire (Saab/ Bini) provided not only a wall of defence but also supported the attack. Midfielders Cassandra Curran (Cassie) and Lauren Latreille (Lolo) controlled the midfield providing scoring opportunities and applying back pressure. At forward, Hannah Marcellus (Hannster), Bianca Larose (B), Annie Groulx (a force of nature), Sophie Denko (Sodenko) and for the last part of the season Zoe Wiggins (Zoe the toe) led a dangerous speedy attack striking fear into other teams defences. While not important, the

girls won a rainbow of medals in tournaments including Bronze in Cumberland, Silver in Russell and Gold in Gloucester. The Girls also finished second in their league play. The team is looking forward to next year when they will move to full field soccer and add additional teammates. The team wished to thank parents and siblings, for their help during practices, snacks during games, equipment management and flagging. In addition, to Brigitte Brodeur for her patience in dealing with our soccer emergencies and to Stephanie Stait (Club Administrator) for all of her assistance. A special thanks goes to Manager Mel (Melissa Marcellus) for all of her hard work in keeping the team organized and moving.

Local have solid results at Paralympic Games LONDON— The 2012 Paralympic games have wrapped up from London and local athletes are brining home solid finishes. The big winner was Embrun’s Patrice Dagenais who was part of Canada’s Wheelchair Rugby team that captured silver and Russell’s Brianna JennettMcNeill had strong finishes in the pool. Local coaches and their teams also represented Canada well, Embrun’s Jeff Dunbrack, rowing, was pleased to see one team win the ‘B’ final, see story above, and while his team did not directly medal, Winchester’s Hugh Conlin, Lead Coach for

Ambulatory Athletics, he was still part of Canada’s Athletics team that captured nine medals in total. At the end of the Games, Canada came away with 31 medals overall, 13th in the standings, seven of which were gold placing them 20th in that category. The road to the silver medal for Dagenais, and the wheelchair rugby team, began on Sept. 5 with a loss to Australia 64-52. Dagenais scored a pair of goals in the game for Canada. The Canadians rebounded in their second contest with a 58-50 victory over Belgium. Dagenais added another goal in this

victory. Canada completed the group stage of the tournament with a narrow 53-52 win, Dagenais with another goal, over Sweden earning them a berth in the semifinals against the U.S.A. The semi-final was another close victory as Canada edged the Americans 50-49. The win set up a rematch with the Australians for the gold medal. However, it would be the same result from the group stage as Australia won the game and the gold medal by a score of 66-51. Dagenais did pick up a goal in the gold medal game. Brianna Jennett-McNeill began her Paralympic

Games on Aug. 31 with the 50-metre freestyle. She finished fourth in her heat with a time of 30.24 and was ninth overall. She missed the final, narrowly, by .13 of a second. Next up was the 100-metre butterfly where she finished fifth in her heat with a time of 1:20:53. She was also fifth in her heat of the 400-metre freestyle with a time of 5:01:94, again narrowly missing the final by 2.5 seconds this time, and she finished her games with a fifth place finish in her 100metre freestyle heat at a time of 1:05:09. Canadian athletes will now begin to prepare for the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Winter athletes are now set to take centre stage in Sochi, Russia for the 2014 Winter Games.

Raiders teams end season with wins RUSSELL— Just a pair of Russell Raiders teams were still in action this past week finishing up their seasons. The WR1 and OT3 team both wrapped up their campaigns with wins, putting them in the top portions of their respective tables. WR1 The WR1 Raiders were in Carleton Place, on Sept. 3, facing off against the

Rangers. Heading into the game, the Raiders had a 20 record against the Rangers this season. They would make it three for three as they shut out Carleton Place 2-0. Leduc-Gaudet Sarah netted both of the tallies for Russell and Brigitte Brodeur kept her first clean sheet of the season. For Leduc-Gaudet the goals were her 13th and

14th, which was a team high and tied for the division lead. The team finished in second place in the standings with a record of seven wins, two ties and five losses. OT3 As for the other Raiders team, the OT3s took to the pitch on Sept. 7, in Russell, against the Sunset Lakers. The OT3s were lifted to

victory by a two-goal effort by Robert Milinkovich as they came away with a 2-1 decision. The two goals resulted in Milinkovich finishing with a team-high six on the season. As for the team, they completed the season with a record of seven wins, five ties and two losses, which was good enough for fourth place.

Barkley finishes with top five at OVGA event A day after his Chase the Dream final qualifier, Kurtis Barkley was back on the links competing in the Ottawa Valley Golf Association Men’s class ‘A’ City and District Tournament. The three-day event began with two rounds at Greensmere Golf and Country Club, Aug. 2728 in Carp, on their two courses, first on Premiere then on Legacy, followed by a final round, for the top 25, on Aug. 30 at Rivermead Golf Club in Aylmer. Barkley had another solid showing as he came away with a top five finish placing fourth with a threeday total of eight over. On his first round, Barkley finished his front nine by parring every hole. He then went on to birdie the par four 10th, but then found bogeys on 11 and 14. Barkley saved his even par round with a birdie on the par five 18th ending the day with a 72. On his second round, Barkley found some trouble on the front nine with four bogeys. He was more stable on the back nine with two bogeys and a birdie on 18, which left him with a five over 77, and some work to do if he wanted to catch the leader and defending champion Allen McGee, who he was eight

stroke back of. Barkley had another good final round at Rivermead, he was two over through nine, but sank

a couple of birdies on the back nine. He did bogey the final two holes and finished the round with a 75. McGee finished the round at 74 and
