Ont. PCs election roadshow stops in Russell By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor RUSSELL Lisa Macleod, Ontario MPP for Nepean-Carleton and Opposition Critic for Revenue and Government Accountability, made an election stop in Russell on Tuesday, June 14 joining forces with GlengarryPrescott-Russell PC Candidate Marilissa Gosselin to denounce Premiere Dalton McGuinty and what they consider his damaging tax grab policies. Dubbing him, "The Taxman", Macleod accused McGuinty of hurting Ontario families in the wallet over his two terms of office, even though he said when elected the first time around in 2003 that he

Members of the Canadian Military were well represented at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 5th Annual Celtic Fest in Russell over the weekend. From left, Sgt. Ken Wilson, Cpl. Hal Hemming, Pte. Matt Bland, M.Cpl. Andrew Scott and Cpl. Jeff Poirier gave conducted demonstrations for what life is like in the Armed Forces and the jobs that one can expect to do, including mine sweeping and land surveying. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;men in greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; were honoured during a special afternoon ceremony hosted by Ron Barr, a member of the Russell Legion branch 372. The local Legion took the reigns on Celtic Fest this time around, which brought several musical performers and dancers to the outdoor stage for a day of fun with a Scottish flair. For more on Celtic Fest, turn to page 5. Photo By Jason Isaac would not hike taxes. Since then, his government's record has included the introduction of the 'health tax', the HST, the Eco-fee debacle, and scandals at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission as well as seeing the province earn 'havenot' status. "If given another term Dalton McGuinty will, introduce new taxes, tax new things and increase the taxes you already pay," said Macleod standing at the corner of Castor and Concessions Streets in downtown Russell. "The only way we can prevent Dalton McGuinty from raising our taxes again after October 6th is replace him as Premier." Macleod has been mak-

ing stops in key ridings throughout the province that the PCs feel they can make some headway in, picking up votes with the intent of stealing them away from the Liberals. Recently, MPP Jean Marc Lalonde, who has served under McGuinty for the past 16 years, first being elected to the Ontario Legislature in 1995, had announced that he is retiring. So far, two likely candidates have announced they have thrown in their hats for the Liberal nomination to replace Lalonde, former Cambridge Township Mayor Gerry Bertrand and North Glengarry Township Mayor Grant Crack. Both men are hopeful to retain the riding for the Liberals on October 6. More candidates

could still come in before the July 13 nomination meeting. Under the leadership of Tim Hudak, the PCs have released their party's platform in what they call the "Changebook". Taking a page from former Premier Mike Harris's "Common Sense Revolution", the Changebook promotes a rethinking of the way government does business with the tax dollars it collects, which, in at least the shortterm, has been the primary economic driver behind much of what the Liberal government has been operating under, according to Macleod. While any party's platform has to be looked at with a grain of salt, the

Changebook lays out key election promises that Hudak believes will get the province on the right track. Those promises include, lowering income taxes by five per cent on the first $75,000 of taxable income, the removal of eco-fess on many common household items such as light bulbs and batteries, doubling the Care Giver Tax Credit, removing mandatory smart meters for monitoring household electricity use, and removing the HST from both electricity and home heating bills as well as the debt retirement charge on hydro bills. To read the Changebook online go to pdf/Changebook_en.pdf. Lalonde, for his part, has said that many of the

Hudak's initiatives cannot be achieved without the revenue coming from somewhere else or slashing services at the expense of Ontarians. Speaking to the media in Alfred recently, Lalonde fears that a Hudakled government would cut health care and education and download services to the local municipalities just so it can balance the books. Lalonde said,â&#x20AC;&#x153;That platform (Changebook) has a billion-dollar hole in it." Both Macleod and Gosselin believe the platform is achievable and with the added tax relief, Ontarians will have more money in their pockets to put back into the economy in other ways. continued on page 2

Russell Fire Department Camping Trailer Fire Safety One of the most popular ways for families to vacation affordably is in a camping trailer. Just look around Russell and notice how many trailers you see in the summertime. Trailers are not just for young families anymore. Retired couples now use trailers as temporary residences to flee the cold weather and head south. The days of the musty canvas tent trailer are coming to an end as some of these modern trailers rival the comforts of our own homes. One friend of mine has a fifth wheeltype that far exceeds the quality of my first apartment in both space and finish. One aspect of life in a trailer that must not be overlooked is fire safety. A trailer is your temporary living space and the same attention to fire safety should apply here as it does in your own home. Your family's safety is worth spending a few moments to review matters that could save their lives. Most of the safety issues related to trailers also apply to the home. First and foremost having smoke alarms that work and testing them on a regular basis. Keep in mind as many people camp in or around wooded areas, be sure to clean smoke alarms regularly in case of spiders or other insects that may get inside the casing. Having a working fire extinguisher in an accessible spot is also a must. As always, the imple-

mentation of a fire escape plan is necessary in any place in which you sleep. As most trailers only have one door planning your escape may be a tougher task than first thought. These three things if reviewed with diligence will give you basic protection should a fire occur, however as we know in the fire service the best way to protect yourself against fire is to prevent having one in the first place. Kitchens are the most common place for residential fires to start and the most common reason is lack of attention to cooking. Considering that when camping, the likelihood of interruptions most likely increases be sure to pay attention to the stove. Cooking also brings up other concerns. Due to the tighter quarters within a trailer, keep children away from the stove when cooking. A boiling pot of water or sauce can cause painful and serious burns if spilled onto a child or adult for that matter. Finally when camping please keep in mind to store any fuels at a safe distance from your trailer. Should a fire occur the last thing you want to do is add fuel to it. Have fun in your trailer but please keep a few of these fire safety tips in mind as you travel this summer. Should you wish to print this article or review any of our past articles please visit our website and go to the "SAFETY" section.

Roadshow continued from front page "You have a clear choice in this election. You can vote for more unannounced and undesired tax hikes. If the Dalton McGuinty Liberal government is re-elected they will hike taxes just like they've done twice before," challenged Macleod. "Or you can vote for change and for tax relief by voting for the Ontario PC Party and our Changebook." Whatever platform the electorate does decide to support, change is inevitable for a province in need of an image makeover.

Embrun church needs more than what’s on the collection plate By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor EMBRUN - Following a devastating windstorm back in April that knocked down trees and power lines, ripped shingles from rooftops and caused extensive damage to the steeple atop the St-Eugene Catholic Church in Embrun, parishioners are looking to the Municipality for financial assistance. The church members, who had to hold services at the Embrun Community Centre before the all-clear was given for them to

return to Sunday Worship at St-Eugene, figure that it will cost around $200,000 to fix the steeple and make other repairs that would bring back the church to its former glory. How they are going to come up with the money has been the source of much debate. Members are hoping the Township will either partially cover the cost of the construction permit fee or waive the fee entirely to get the project underway. Council is waiting to make a final decision on the request.

Water rates on the rise By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor RUSSELL - Some residents who were skeptical of the plan to pipe in to Russell water Township because of its cost to taxpayers may be taking a "we told you so" attitude this week as a new report tabled by administration to Township Council is calling for an increase to the variable water rate. The report states that the new charges, which amount to a 4.667 per cent increase from last year's rate, would be retroactive to April 1 of this year. The price hike is to offset costs associated with water delivery, operating expenses and to pay off the loan that the municipality took out to complete the project.

According to staff numbers, the local water rate in 2010 was set at $1.50 per cubic metre, which covered the $1.276 that was charged by the City of Ottawa. With the rate increase, the cost per cubic metre will now sit at $1.57, a seven-cent jump. The increase is expected to come close to covering the estimated expenses, with revenue coming in at $1.254 million to the $1.255 million in overall cost to the Township. During the election, some candidates had discussed looking at negotiating with Ottawa for a bulk delivery rate for water that would lower the rate paid by residents. So far, there is no word on whether those discussions have been held.

Roar From the Den Lions Celebrate Charter Night The members of the Russell Lions Club along with their wives and partners celebrated our 64th Annual Charter Night on June 11 at the Lions Den. President Ted Lion Morrison enthusiastically presided over the evening which consisted of a full course meal, a review of the years significant events and an awards ceremony recognizing the exceptional dedication to Lionism and the community by club members. In the last four years, the Lions have selected a dedicated member of our com-

munity to be the recipient of our Lion Danny Proulx Award. Lion Danny was an exemplary Club member who passed away at much too early an age. This year Diny Achtereekte was the award recipient, which is accompanied with a cheque for $500 payable in Diny's name to a charity or organization of her choice. Pictured below, Gale Proulx presents Diny with her award. Characteristic of Diny's sense of community concern she selected the Winchester Hospital as the

recipient of the $500. President Ted, along with Awards Chairperson Lion Jack McLaren commenced


the awards portion of the evening by advising the members that Lions Frank Thompson and Jean Lauzier were recent recipients of the Ontario Government Service Volunteer Award. They then continued with the presentations to the following Lions. Reaching Perfect Attendance milestones were Lions Jim Sullivan (46 years), Gord Saunders (38 years), and Jack McLaren (25 years). Marking significant membership milestone years were Lions Denis Poirier (25 years) and Club Secretary Sylvia Smith (15 years). Lion Foundation Of Canada Fellowship awards were presented to Lions Marc Bourque and George Rogers. The Helen Keller Fellowship Award was presented to Lion Peter Marr. The President Award plaque recipients included Lions George Rogers, Sylvia Smith and Julius

Toth. The most distinguished award in all of Lionism, the Melvin Jones Award, was presented to Lion Jim Sullivan. In the 64-year history of our Club only three Lions have previous received this award (founding member Lion Dr. Frank Kinniard, Lion Jack McLaren and Lion Gord Saunders). Like these three Lions, Lion Jim is a well deserving recipient of the highest honour Lionism can bestow upon a member. Governed by his unselfish dedication to help his fellow man he represents the best of the best and remains a continued driving force in helping our Club to continually do better in our service commitment to you. We congratulate Lion Jim on this personal milestone achievement and look forward to his continued involvement with the Russell Lions Club for many years to come. (See Photo next week).

By Cindy Saucier Special to The Villager In celebration of International Year of the Forest, South Nation Conservation hosted a tree tour on June 8 and a film screening on June 15 at the SNC office in Finch. Approximately 25 people attended the screening. SNC has a 20-year management plan. "Forests Are Forever" was the theme of the day. SNC plants about 300 million seedlings each year and hopes to have an increase of about 20 per cent by 2030. There should be selective harvesting and sustainable management of a forest. Many people are concerned about a tree bylaw but maintaining a forest in a sustainable way is desirable. Creating gaps in a forest canopy allows for regeneration of a forest floor. In Sweden, they use trees and brush piles for biofuel, which equals a total of 26 per cent of total Swedish energy production. If an area drops below 30 per cent, that area is in trouble. Areas such as Bourget became almost a desert and we are

close to a tipping point in this region. Thankfully, Ferdinand Larose had a vision in 1920 and today we have Larose Forest, but we have very few stands of what is considered old-growth. Every Municipality should have a 20-year management plan. Forests are forever! Some of our area is heading back to those desert-like conditions. We need to monitor our local forests. Felix, Feinkbeiner, a 14 year old boy, addressed the UN, and his moving statement asked, "The nay sayers state there is no global warming. So in 20 years if we are wrong, but we did something, then we are ahead. But. if we do nothing and in 20 years we find out we were right, then what? If we did nothing, then we would be in trouble. We need to err on the side of precaution. We will be ahead, even if we are wrong." Feinkbeiner received a standing ovation and we hope the adults were listening. The final stage of degradation equals bedrock. We need to stop talking and start planting!

Thanks to the many volunteers, committee members along with the Lions Club and Agricultural Society for helping to make July 1 a special day. I thank God for this great country, this community and the people in it. Bert Vedder Chair, Russell Canada Day Committee

CASTORCountry By Tom Van Dusen

A Fathersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day Brew At one point when we gathered at "the home" Sunday to celebrate Fathers' Day, I looked over at my dad who had rolled his wheelchair close to the ornamental steel fencing around the patio. He held one of the bars and looked out at the world beyond the fence, maybe thinking about how it used to be when he could come and go as he pleased, when he literally stood on his own two feet, when he was a force to be reckoned with. Watching him at the gate, I couldn't help cracking a joke about Dad "trying to make a break for it" - in different circumstances, that's what he would have done but it really wasn't that funny. Although Dad can't easily put his thoughts into words anymore, it was probably too close to the truth. Dad will turn 90 in August. Once again, many family members will gather at St. Patrick's Home on Riverside Drive in Ottawa to wish him well. We'd like to take him out for a party but for Dad to leave the protective surroundings of St. Pat's has become impractical and even hazardous. He's now a dead weight and must be moved in and out of his wheelchair by staff at the home.

Sad but true, Dad has been confined for the past two years because he can no longer function on his own. While he recognizes his offspring, he can't remember if he had breakfast on a given morning. He has diabetes, which requires daily treatment. Once an integral part of the Russell breakfast club and the park bench crowd, the shrinking man syndrome has kicked in, making him seem only a fraction of his former size, and that fraction stooped and frail. After 25 years of occupying a rambling house backing onto the Castor River in Russell, my parents sold it and moved to a more manageable city high-rise unit. Dad said he'd never be able to stand downtown living, but he adjusted as those days along the Castor faded away. Never a farmer, Dad's a country boy to the core, having spent his most enjoyable times in the rural settings of Russell, Aylmer, Que, and, as a boy, in Gracefield, Que. He had three books published, one about former prime minister John Diefenbaker for whom he worked 50 years ago, a novel, and a book of reminiscences. He was a reporter, political assistant and advisor, a municipal

in councillor Aylmer, candidate for federal office twice and is the father of seven children, myself being the eldest... and smartest, something I always point out when the others aren't around to unjustly contradict me. Just to show that the wormy apple doesn't fall far from the tree, I've also been a reporter, candidate for federal election nomination, municipal councillor in Russell, and media assistant to former deputy prime minister Don Mazankowski, occupying an office only a few doors from Dad when he was in former prime minister Brian Mulroney's employ. In his prime, Dad was larger-than-life, a superb story teller and humorist, an excellent speaker with the timing of a pro who owned the crowd, and an avid reader to the point that he literally surrounded himself with books. His hearing may be failing but his sight is just fine. Unable to detach himself from them, he keeps a small collection of books in his room at the home and has access to many others in the communal library. When it became apparent Dad needed institutional

supervision, that Mom was no longer up to the task of chief caregiver, the wrenching decision was made by family members to put him on the list for a bed in one of the Ottawa seniors' residences. A vacancy at St. Pat's came up first. The faint smell of urine, aging residents slumped in occasional wheelchairs, groans and louder cries coming from the rooms... this is what greeted us upon walking into the place the first time. Dad couldn't stay here, I thought. That's what he thought too. As it turned out, the sour smell and the groans are only occasional and there's more life in those wheelchairs than first meets the eye. We grew accustomed to the home and so did Dad. Later on Sunday as I sat at the Lucky 7 in Embrun enjoying a Father's Day brew with my 19-year-old son Oliver, it occurred to me that it's the simple pleasures that are missed the most.

Above, Proprietor Sandra Neilson (left), along with her mom, Madeleine Mire, took a break from all the festivities that went along with the second birthday celebration of the Urban Country store in Russell on June11-12. The store has benefited from the talented artisans and craftsmen of the local area that sell their handmade wares inside along with a wide selection of curio and home dĂŠcor items. "Business is booming," said Neilson, who thanked all her loyal and new customers with free sweet treats. "I am excited about the new ideas I have for Urban Country in the next little while," said Neilson who is mum on the details for now. That news may come first to Urban Country's Facebook friends. Neilson has set up a fan page on the social media site as well as an official website,, for news, bios on local artists, a gallery of products and printable coupons.

23rd Annual

The Sons of Scotland Band

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right up your kilt!â&#x20AC;? By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor RUSSELL - Organizers couldn't have asked for a better day to hold this year's annual Celtic Fest on Saturday, June 18, but the weather may have been too nice, driving many to their cottages or other summer activities, creating a downturn in attendance for the all-things Scottish event. Other culprits could have been the Great Canadian Rodeo in neigbouring North Dundas and Carivibe in Orleans. Those that did come out were definitely there to party and raised a pint or two for the cause. By all accounts, the entertainment that signed up for Celtic Fest was as great if not better than in previous editions of the 5-year old festival, hosted this year by the Russell Legion Branch 372. The stage was filled with performances that included the Sons of Scotland Pipe Band, singersongwriter, Chris Angel, the folksy air of Corkery Road from Moose Creek, the toetapping local gals from the

Red Hot Chili Steppers, Brandy 'N Port and wrapping of the 12-hour extravaganza, the youthful Dukes of Haggis. New this year was a display of military vehicles along with demonstrations from Canadian military personnel. Families got a firsthand look at what life is like for a solider not only in conflict zones but right here on Canadian soil. The military also took centre stage as money raised through bar tips and donations were given over to the Soldier On campaign that helps to improve the quality of life of ill and injured military personnel and their families, and the defence community as a whole by inspiring them to adopt an active lifestyle. For those that came out to listen to the music and meet up with old friends or to make new ones, Celtic Fest still resonates with them as one of the more important and lively community events on the community calendar. Already plans are in the works for next year, come rain or come shine.

Prescott-Russell Basketball Association’s season closes By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor RUSSELL - Craig Salmon has seen a great year of basketball this season. As organizer and program director of the Prescott-Russell Basketball Association (PRBA), now in its eleventh year, he has watched his players, ages 6-17, not only grow into strong b-ballers, but more importantly, even stronger members of the local community. While basketball may be one of the key ingredients, Salmon's main goal with his program is to help youth develop into and strive to be better human beings.

"How effective was the drill?" Salmon then meets with the coaches a couple of weeks after the evaluation to provide the scores and to discuss how well the coach handled himself or herself. "The feedback is great for these kids and gives them a checkpoint of how well they are doing," said Salmon. "Some of the drills past coaches have designed are still used in the program today." Back in March, at mid-season, Salmon put together a fun evening where all the players and coaches could kick off their high-tops for a basketball themed movie and

Salmon teaches the fundamentals of basketball with the help of volunteer coaches that have come up through the ranks of the Association as players first. Being an assistant coach is a way to develop organizing and communication skills that can be used off the basketball court, while the game itself lends to learning about teamwork and building lasting friendships. "The Coaches have been fantastic this year," said Salmon. "Each of them must design a practice to teach a particular skill to one (or more) of the groups. They must design what I call a Skill Drill, which will teach the particular skill they have chosen and it has to be new, and not something that we have done before." Each coach, armed with a memorable nickname like Smurf or Chowder does not know which group they will be coaching (Junior, Youth, Senior, Select), so they must take into account the difference in age and skill. One day during the regular season, Salmon hands over his clipboard and the assistant coaches take over the practice that is held every Saturday in the gym at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School. "They are in charge," explained Salmon. "They must get the balls from the custodian and setup the gym. I do not help them unless someone gets hurt or I see a dangerous situation developing." At the end of the practice their 'assistant coaches' complete an evaluation of the 'head coach' and the Skill Drill. These are simple 0-10 points with specific questions like

pizza night. Part of the fun comes from the annual coach's choreographed dance number (this year it was the 'Time Warp' from the Rocky Horror Picture Show) and a karaoke sing-off. "It is a great way to show that our program is more than just the fundamentals of basketball," said Salmon. "I want to build a lasting experience for these kids that will become part of who they are." On Saturday, June 11, the season closed on the PRBA, but not before 'Coach Craig' hosted his annual backyard barbecue and pool party, complete with a giant blow up obstacle course from My Bubble Bounce, and all the BBQ fixing's from Pat Thibadeau from the M&M, both in Embrun. Several on-street one-on-one basketball games also took centre court for the afternoon. "This is my way of thanking all of the kids and their parents for coming out to the practices and for making the sacrifices to be part of this association. These kids have proven to not only be a great group of basketball players but a great group of kids," said Salmon, who also handed out special attendance awards and a top coaching award at the event (see photo captions for the winners). Already Salmon is looking to next season for new players and new assistant coaches. Registration for next year is now open at with a $10 discount if you register before July 1, 2011. If you have a child that is looking to be a part of a sports club that is all about the fun, then the Prescott-Russell Basketball Association is for them.

Coach Craig’s Crew

Another high school baseball season flies out By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor RUSSELL - Russell High School hosted the season ending playoff tournament for the local high school baseball league at the Russell Fairgrounds on Friday, June 17. The round-robin style tourney involved the boys and girls' teams from St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Elementary (Ravens), the Russell High (T-Wolves), and St. Francis Xavier Catholic School (Falcons). Under the extreme heat of the sun and the dusty field made nearly unbearable by the number of runners rounding the bases, the teams worked their way to the championship match-ups between the Ravens and

the T-Wolves in both divisions, while the Falcons, headed home early with their wings tucked under them from their earlier eliminations. All four teams show great field play while the bats were hot for the Ravens boys' and the T-Wolves girls' squads. The boys' game ended on a mercy rule with the Ravens up 16-2 in the sixth inning, while the girls went the full seven and finished with the T-Wolves scoring 12 runs to the Ravens 7. The baseball tournament ended the season not only for that sport but for the each school's overall athletics program for the year as the students head into final exams.

Above left, Attendance Award Winners for each group plus, Top Coach Bubbles (Alexa Steele) - 150 volunteer hours; Senior Coach - Smurf - 148 volunteer hours; and Junior Coach - Callum Salmon - 100 volunteer hours (he is only in Grade 7 and cannot use community service hours until he is in grade 8). The total number of hours volunteered this year by all the coaches including Coach Craig was 1072; above right, streetball game.
