The red coats ride into Russell

Ride this season

By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor RUSSELL - Mother Nature certainly wasn't playing favourites for organizers from the Russell Curling Club who were successful in bringing the famous RCMP Musical Ride to the Russell Fairgrounds this past Saturday, May 14. The rain never let up and turned the special ringside set up for the show into a mud-bowl, but that did not deter the Canada's signature red coated officers from saddling up and putting on a spectacular performance for a few hundred area residents. Billed as a fundraiser for the RCC, which was hoping to bring at least $10,000 to pay off some of the renovation debt to the newly expanded Curling Club, the Musical Ride was only one of two shows Ontario scheduled this season on a cross-country tour. The second performance was held in South Mountain on May 15. More than 500 tickets had been sold in advance for the Russell outing, but rain may have kept some of those people at home and did have an affect on the walk-up ticket sales. Final figures were unavailable at press time. A special VIP section was set up in the grandstand for invited guests, including Russell Township Mayor JP St-Pierre and his wife Jocelyn, along with Russell Curling Club President Jim Inch and his wife Doreen

Members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police brought the RCMP Musical Ride to the Russell Fairgrounds on May 14 demonstrating through a fantastic show of choreography and showmanship why they have earned Canadian icon status.

The performance was held as a fundraiser for the Russell Curling Club. For more pictures turn to page 6. Photo By Jason Isaac and Russell Agricultural Society President and his wife Wilma. But the main guest of honour was former Russell resident and RCC curler of 32 years, Merrill Waddell, wife of the late Harold Waddell of Edwards. Described as a "selfless volunteer" who held various executive positions with the Club, Waddell was instrumental in building up the RCC into the success it is today. She found time to be a curling instructor for new members, and represented the Club in many high profile competitive bonspiels, earning her name on several trophies over the lifetime of her membership. Waddell suffered a stroke this year that sidelined her participation in the sport she loved the

most but that didn't stop her from bundling up and coming out with her family, including daughter Debbie McVey and son Barry McVey, and her grandchildren Morgan and Matthew, to receive a special salute from RCMP Superintendent Marty Chesser, to kick off the Musical Ride. Chesser, a proud resident of Embrun since 1987, thanked those who came out despite the weather, paying tribute to the host town for supporting its clubs and organizations and keeping an attentive focus on the importance of family in the community "It's a great place to raise a family," Chesser said about Russell in his address to those in attendance. "I am pleased to see so many young families

here." Another hometown boy was recognized during the opening introductions. Dane McCarty, formerly of Hamilton Rd. just north of Russell, joined the RCMP over four years ago. Following the prerequisite two years of active police work, McCarty earned his place in the Musical Ride. According to the RCMP, every year approximately 800 officers from across Canada apply to join the Ride team, with only 45 being accepted to into fiveweek Basic Equestrian Course in Ottawa. Of those, only 12-15 make the official cut and McCarty became one of the lucky few who will serve for a three year term. He received a hometown welcome from the

crowd who cheered loud enough to make his face blush the colour of his red jacket. The Musical Ride got underway with some amazing synchronization of horse and rider set to music. In keeping with tradition, a full troop of 32 riders executed several choreographed drills that relied heavily on control, timing and excellent coordination. The routines in Russell were flawless, including the most recognizable formation called 'The Dome' that used to be depicted on the back of the Canadian fifty dollar bill. The grand finale featured the famous cavalry 'Charge'. With lances lowered, the riders and their horses galloped from one end of the ring to the other

in a furry of flying sand and a roar of delighted applause from the crowd. The show concluded with a final 'March Past' in full regal salute of the guest of honour, Merrill Waddell, before the public was invited to get up close and personal with the horses for pictures and to ask the officers questions about being part of something truly Canadian. The Musical Ride now moves on out to Saskatchewan before returning to Ottawa for their annual public Sunset Ceremony performances at the RCMP Rockliffe Stables from June 22-26.

Russell Fire Department Escape Plans Imagine a scene like this within your own home: It's two o'clock in the morning and smoke the alarm sounds; you wake up and smell smoke. You run into the hallway and see the smoke starting to fill the ceiling space. Immediately you begin to yell, "FIRE!" Your spouse runs into the hallway and begins to awaken your three children and tells them to get outside right away. Next thing you know you are on the front lawn freezing wearing only your pajamas and the flames begin to consume the upper floor of your home. You look around and find that only two of your three children are with you. Unbeknownst to you, one of the children ran outside and is safely in the backyard watching the fire. What are you going to do? As with most parents your children's safety is the most important thing in your life and like most parents your first reaction is to re-enter the home to find your child without any regard for your own safety. Frantically you run inside the home to find your child. It doesn't take very long, maybe only a few seconds, but the smoke overwhelms you and you find yourself lying on the floor unable to move and rapidly losing consciousness. The house continues to burn and a parent is lost. A disaster. A family that safely escaped their burning home has now lost a parent, and why? It wasn't to recover a child from the burning building because the child was safely outside and in the backyard. It was because there was a lack of planning. If every family had an

escape plan in place, which practhey ticed, everyone would have headed to the "meeting place" and no one would have felt the necessity of re-entering a burning building. An escape plan is simply a fire drill we use in our own homes. All of our children practice fire drills at school but they are more likely to experience a fire in their own homes than they are at school. With this in mind, doesn't it make sense to practice this at home as well? Once you have established an escape plan with your family, then it's time to practice it. At first, under controlled conditions to be sure everyone knows what they are supposed to do, be sure to review the perafterwards. formance Later on try sounding the smoke alarm in the middle of the night to see how everyone performs under a more realistic condition. You might be surprised how differently this works when everyone has been suddenly awakened. The good thing is with practice everyone will improve and this is a skill that might one day save you as a family. The Russell Fire Department has a program in place called the Home Fire Safety Assessment Program, whereas a fire fighter will come into your home to review your overall fire safety and go through escape plan options with you. Upon completion, a written report will be provided with suggestions as to how your family can be better prepared. If this is of interest to you, contact the fire department at 613-445-3326 and leave a message.

New library branch opens its doors By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor RUSSELL - If you haven't already checked out the spacious new library branch in Russell, it should be on your must do list. The Villager dropped by on opening day, Thursday, May 12, for a quick look-see and discovered branch librarian, Helene Quesnel beaming behind the checkout desk. "I am very happy to be finally in our library and amazed that it took less than a year since the plan was drawn up to build it," she said. She pointed out that the library's entire collection of books, and other source materials have found a home on the new display shelves, with lots of room to grow. Visitors will be in awe of the high ceiling and open concept that brings in a lot of natural light through the big picture windows. You can curl up with you favourite book on a chair in front of the new fireplace, or use the bank of computers to help in your research on a particular topic. There is even a special children's section, complete with a rocking chair for story time. Quesnel says that there are still several finishing touches to be done at the new "jewel" in the village, including more furniture and landscaping. Right now, the parking lot is not completed, which means visitors must park along Concession St. All the work should be finished by the end of the June, followed by an official opening ceremony and ribbon cutting. The Russell branch had been located on Mill St.

for more than twenty years closing its doors back on May 2 to get ready for the move to the new location. With the growth of its collection and a need for a more modern library, the decision was made by the former Russell Township Council, under then Mayor Ken Hill, to build a new facility more centrally located to area schools and residential subdivisions and to provide the improved amenities comparable to that of other municipal libraries. The

Zoning By-Law Open House

Corporate and Commercial/Droit corporatif et commercial

Above, Russell Township resident Tom Huisman (left) speaks with Mayor JP St-Pierre (right) at the recent municipal open house to present the first draft proposal of the new Township Zoning Bylaw. The Ontario government stipulates by law that all municipalities must complete an official plan and update existing zoning bylaws in harmony with the official plan. While the latest official plan was completed last year, the zoning bylaw had not been reviewed since 1992. Under the new preliminary zoning bylaw, the proposal suggests a further intensification in the more urban centres of the Township, and looks at what will be permitted by way of property access (driveways), and lot and building sizes. "This is what the Province wants in its Ontario communities," said StPierre, "We are bound by that law, however any change to zoning has to be reasonable and not proven to be a determent to our communities." The public gets its chance to present and ask questions at the upcoming Public Meeting on the Zoning Bylaw on June 6 at 7:00 p.m. "We will listen to all opinions on this issue, " concluded St-Pierre, "even if it sends us back to the drawing board. There is no official deadline for this to be completed and we won't rush into anything just to get it done." To review the draft proposal ahead of the public meeting, check out the zoning bylaw documentation on the website.

CASTORCountry By Tom Van Dusen

Thank you for Shelling out for charity your support!

The Editor, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped and supported me during this 41st federal election campaign. Whether you donated, volunteered or voted for the Green Party, your support is greatly appreciated. You were a fantastic team and I am proud to have walked the line with all of you. I want to extend a particular thank you to the local Media in GlengarryPrescott-Russell who allowed me equal air time in this election. It has not always been the case across Canada and I appreciate the fact that you provided the residents of GlengarryPrescott-Russell an unbiased opportunity to make up their own minds based on the information you provided. I would also like to thank the other candidates for running clean, respectful and intelligent campaigns in this riding - a sign that true democracy is

healthy at home. I continue to have great hope for Canada. I will rest and reflect on the national results and on my next steps. I have asked our party to regroup early this summer at a summer convention to get all candidates and their teams under one roof to review the campaign, to discuss strategy between campaigns, to infuse positivism and renew the Green spirit. I'm looking forward to meeting and chatting with you in the near future as I hope we will stay engaged in our goal of continuing to build a Green Vision for Canada between elections. In closing I'm committing to support the Green Party of Ontario in our region so please consider being our next Green provincial candidate in October and we will work together for a Greener approach to democracy. Sylvie Lemieux Green Party, GPR

Reader not so ‘chipper’ The Editor, When has professional workmanship and pride in our neighbourhood become a commodity? I have been driving our rural roads for 35 years and never have I felt shame and disappointment in our beautiful natural setting as now. What I see more and more are small trees with their limbs or trunks chipped off, leaving white shreds open to disease. It is disgusting and unsightly. (Awhile ago) the "Chipper" attacked my property on Eadie Rd in Russell, which has had more than its share of problems in the last couple of years. I now will go up to the road and try to repair some of the damage. Please don't waste our tax dollars this way. The old saying, "If it's worth doing, it's worth doing well". Margrit Cholowski Russell

It’s one of the area’s biggest, most durable annual fundraisers. It brings squeals of delight and lipsmacking satisfaction to all who attend‌ despite the fact the claws always come out. No, I’m not talking about Ladies Night! I’m talking about the Russell Lions Club Lobsterfeast, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, 25 years of delivering all-you-can-eat lobster and the garlic butter to dip it in to a grateful regional audience. This year’s edition will take place at the Russell Arena May 28, with doors opening at 5 pm and the dinner at 7 pm. Also on the menu is roast beef, salad, dessert and assorted trimmings. The bar is open for the duration and dancing to recorded music starts at 9 pm. Jack McLaren is the Lion to phone for tickets, at 613-445-2131; the cutoff is next Tuesday when the final lobster order must be placed. The Russell Lions have been serving up the coveted crustaceans by the tonne ever since PEI native Bernie Doiron came up with the idea a quarter century ago when he was living in Russell with wife Beryl. Chairman of the first organizing committee, Bernie knew exactly where to get his hands on a good supply of lobster‌ from the Doiron family business in PEI which has been delivering a truckload of frozen cooked lobsters on the same day of the event every year since. Bernie and Beryl left town several years ago, spending much of their time now on PEI when they’re not engaged in bicycle tours in faraway lands. Lion Gord Saunders was there at the begin-

ning and is still around, serving this year as co-chair of the event along with Julius Toth. Gord said being part of the crew which puts on Lobsterfeast is satisfying largely because it’s a successful fundraiser pretty much guaranteed to net $10,000 each time. After so many years with so many of the same people still on board, the operation runs quite smoothly, he said. The net take since the first Lobsterfeast has been about $250,000, all of it going back into community causes. In its early years, the Russell Lions held weekly dances at the old village curling rink to raise money for various causes. Later, the dances were replaced by fundraising baseball tournaments which attracted players from as far away as New York State. Now Lobsterfeast rules as the club’s main money maker, with proceeds directed to such worthy beneficiaries as local sports, the Russell Fire Department, an annual food drive, and Winchester and District Memorial Hospital projects. The Lions also collaborate with other service organizations to help in international campaigns. Not only is Lobsterfeast the Lions’ most successful annual event, it’s probably the biggest recurring fundraiser in village history. Possibly lining up to some day match that success is the aforementioned Ladies Night which regularly surpasses the 600 mark in attendance and raises in the $25,000 bracket every time. Gord said Lobsterfeast attendance has fallen in recent years, down from 850 to an expected 550 this time out.

A bouquet of thanks The Editor, The local branch of the Canadian Cancer Society would like to thank all the businesses, schools, community, and Dini would like to thank her church for their support of the daffodil days. This year, we did not have the lovely blooms but pins were offered as a symbol of hope. You could donate any amount. Locally, we raised $706. The society had placed some boxes in local business establishments during the month of April. Although th ecampaign is now over, you can still purthe CCS is still accepting

donations. Please give generously. I have been approaching the same businesses for many years and I have to say thank you because you always make me feel welcome and donate generously. This year, I would like to mention the Russell library and the businesses such as Village Veterinary Clinic who donated so generously and also offered to leave the daffodil pins at their establishment. I also thank Kindercare and Curves Embrun. Cindy Saucier Russell

He blamed the decline on lower disposable income for many families and competition from two other lobster bashes on the same night, one in Casselman and one in Cornwall. Still, he said, no thought is being given to permanently slamming the lid on the feast because it still brings in a good return. But back to the delicious day in question! The lobsters are served cold right off the truck. An estimated 3,000 pounds will be ordered in this time, down by about 1,000 pounds from the event’s heyday when up to 900 people jammed the ice surface, got bibbed, and down to messy business at hand. Where pre-ordered, all-you-can-eat lobster is concerned, there’s very little in the way of leftovers. What remains is enjoyed by the clean up crew the next day. What happens to all those orange shells once they’ve been picked through? They’re trucked off to the Russell Township landfill at no dumping charge, with council fully aware of all the good deeds that get done thanks to Lobsterfeast revenues. The arena rental fee is also waved for the event. Ladies and gentlemen‌ prepare your plastic bibs!

Keeping Russell in full bloom The Editor, Keeping Russell Blooming is one of many projects undertaken by the Russell Village Women's Institute. As in previous years, we are looking for groups, organizations and residents of Russell to 'Adopt a Flower Basket'. The cost of planting and maintaining the 40 hanging baskets and 13 ground planters is approximately $6000 per year; which is just over $100 each. Everyone gets to enjoy the flowers all summer long - from early June until October - making our little town a nicer place to live. If $100.00 is too much, why not ask your friends or the neighbours on

your street to chip in towards the adoption of a basket. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. Donations can be made to Russell Village Women's Institute care of: Mary Inglis, 62 Craig St. Russell, ON K4R 1A2. Our fundraising efforts this year will also include, 'Toonies and Loonies for Bloomies'. Watch for that coming soon. We will roll out the sticky tape and see how quickly the small contributions add up. Watch for us at various locations in your community. Mary Inglis Russell Village W.I.

Outpouring of community support for couple during medical crisis By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor RUSSELL - Kathleen 'Kat' Alderson has always been a caring person known to look out for the wellbeing of her friends, neighbours and family. Last year, the former Russell hairstylist from The Barber Shop on Concession St. in the heart of the village, found out that her father was very ill so she did what she does best, packed up her stuff and her business and took along her fiancé, Jamie Doyle, to Thamesville, Ontario to take care of her ailing dad. Sadly, her father has since passed away, but Kat is now busy once again taking care of someone that needs her the most. Late last year, after an appointment with his doctor, Jamie was diagnosed with advanced stage 4B Mantel Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a rare form of cancer considered to be terminal. Both Jamie and Kat had planned to move back Russell, but Jamie's condition kept them from that homecoming. Since being diagnosed, Jamie has undergone seven special chemotherapy treatments, but because he is

considered not to be an average patient of this disease, and it is yet to be determined if the aggressive therapy is working. His doctors had also placed him on the list for a stem cell transplant that may slow down the spread of the cancer, improving his quality of life, but due to the risk and sideeffects that may come from the procedure, Jamie has elected to not undergo that form of treatment. The situation for both Jamie and Kat are grim to say the least. Doing her part to rally the troops to not only help lift the spirits of the couple but to raise money to help with their day to day expenses, Kat's friend Diane Wolfenden, pulled together a team of volunteers to host a Trivia Night fundraiser that was held upstairs at the Russell Community Centre on May 14. With so much love and support for the pair, the number of trivia buffs rendered the original venue, the Russell Pub too small to hold the event. Close to 250 of those friends, neighbours and family members that Kat has helped out over the years, registered teams. Unfortunately, with Jamie too sick to travel, he and Kat

were greatly missed on Saturday night. However, they were well represented by a strong contingent of family, including Jamie's mother and father, Mary Anne and Murray Doyle, and Kat's two daughters, Alicia and Kisha Alderson. "We have all been touched I am sure by this dreaded disease but this is the first time our family has experienced it," said Mary Anne in addressing the assembled crowd. "Until they find a cure, we all have to rely on each other for support and realize that we are not alone." Jamie's mom said that her family had a long history with Russell, with her mother living in the village and her sister teaching at one of the area high schools. "What you people in Russell have done here tonight is special in our hearts." While some may find it unusual that the money raised at the Trivia Night was not to pay for medical bills or go toward a particular registered organization in Jamie's name, Diane Wolfenden was quick to explain the reason behind the fundraiser. "My husband and I come from P.E.I. and

there, every weekend, some kind of fundraiser is held to help out someone down on their luck," she said. "I just wanted to make sure that Kat and Jamie didn't need to worry about having to pay a hydro bill or something like that while they are going through this emotionally draining time. Their focus should be on each other." With over $13,000 retail worth of donated silent auction items, including some beautiful paintings from the local artist community, to which Kat is a member (both she and her mom are painters), the Trivia Night raised a grand total of $13,100 - a truly amazing outpouring of love from friends for friends. "What goes around comes around, "said Mary Anne. "We hope that we have an opportunity to return these favours at sometime and we will get them back here to Eastern Ontario where they belong." Kat has done so much for her community already that there is no need for reciprocation. Her community just wants her and Jamie back for a very long time to come.

Water, water, everywhere? By Cindy Saucier Special to The Villager Water is not an endless commodity. Canadians are water gluttons. We use more water than most European countries and rate second to the U.S. as water consumers. We each use approximately 343 litres per day. Although the Earth is covered with approximately 80 per cent water, only 1 per cent is fresh water, and an even smaller percentage of this is drinkable. Water is recycled. This is all we have and there are not endless amounts of it. We need to look at our wasteful ways and conserve this precious resource. Millions of children die each year due to lack of fresh drinking water while we have portable water in our toilet bowls. We need to look at using gray, recycled water for purposes such as these. Currently, there is a water ban in effect in part of the City of Ottawa. Water restrictions are a reality. Russell Township has lawn-watering restrictions on their books. Do we really need to water a lawn at all? I have never put a hose on my lawn. Even in droughts, lawns will green up again. The only lawns that require watering are those being reseeded. Mother Nature usually does a good job at watering. Instead, homeowners would be wise to consider using rain barrels to catch rainwater, which is the preferred water source for plants instead of treated water. This water is free and rain barrels have a hose attachment and tap with which you can water your gardens with the recycled water. Many local residents are charged for the amount of water they use and this makes sense. Once you pay for what you use you will start to conserve. I recently witnessed some real abuse of water. Does it make sense to water your driveway with a pressure washer while it is raining? Like most new toys, some guys (and gals) get a hold of those things and pressure wash everything in sight. Something else that had me head-scratching was witnessing a lawn tractor being pressure washed, in the rain, and then the lawn was cut, in the rain.

I recently was invited to Russell High School to talk about water conservation. South Nation Conservation educates on this very topic. We discussed the use of plastic water bottles and the often unfounded reasons why we trust the water in plastic bottles over our own tap water. We transport this water for miles and even some comes from as far away as France. Does France have more stringent laws than we do? We pay more for that water than we do for gasoline! Plastic water bottles often end up in a landfill because people use them away from home. Using a stainless steel water bottle makes more sense. David Suzuki always requests a jug of water and a glass when he presents and refuses plastic water bottles. Canadians spend thousands of dollars on purchasing water each year. Another head-scratcher! What I found promising during my visit to RHS came from the amount of interest in water conservation there is in Sarah Hill's Grade 12 class. The students were a thought-provoking, enthusiastic, and attentive group and they made me feel confident that our young people care about the environment and will be our future stewards. Many were interested in partaking in South Nation's volunteer endeavour of joining the 'Riverwatch Program' where water quality is monitored or rainfall is recorded. There is plenty of opportunity for volunteer hours. Contact SNC at 1-877-984-2948 or head to for more info. We must remember water is recycled and what goes down comes back up. What we do to that water, the chemicals we use, cleaning products, bleach, pesticides and fertilizers all have an impact on water quality and could possibly affect our wells. We aired the video, A Ripple Effect, to the class at RHS and the message was clear, "We all live downstream". This is perhaps the reason many residents are currently concerned in Russell Township. Sometimes it is a hit on the head that makes us realize, water is worth protecting!

By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor CARLSBAD SPRINGS - Regent Pomerleau began with a dream. To build a family business from the ground up with its main focus on top quality customer service. That dream began back in 1961, when, following in the footsteps of his father, Regent bought his first dump truck. At the time, he contracted his business out to several major projects including the construction of Hwy 401 and the Diefenbunker in Carp, Ontario. Growing his business slowly, based on the solid reputation that he and his wife Therese built from their clients over years that found both to be hard working and honest, Regent pushed the company further by concentrating on supplying various types of equipment to homeowners, landscapers, and contractors. By 1973, Regent had taken the next step and incorporated the business under the name R. Pomerleau Ltd. Back then, the couple thrived on the lucrative trucking and excavation business and kept busy in the winter months working on snow. It was a struggle in the lean years according to Therese. With four young mouths to feed, Regent was on the road constantly at one job or another but always found the time to come home for some family nurturing. It was that nurturing that destined two of his sons, Richard and Gilles, to join the family business, both becoming an integral part of the continued success of R. Pomerleau Ltd. Gilles would oversee the sewer and water arm of the company while Richard oversaw the excavation portion of the business. Richard now serves as the Vice President ready to lead the company into the next 50 years of operation. While many families have a hard time working together, the Pomerleau's never had that problem, even hiring on cousin Serge Pomerleau who has been running the main dispatch centre for the past 29 years and as the company's head mechanic, and nephew Michel Carrier who has taken some pressure off of Therese who use to keep the books exclusively. Michel has been the inhouse accountant for the past 22 years. The company has grown exponentially since its humble beginnings and has even expanded into an affiliate company in the form of

Pavers, Concrete,

Interlocking in Hardscapes Newswire Interlocking concrete pavers provide a durable and beautiful alternative to concrete or asphalt for patios, walkways, driveways, fountains, even streets. Over 200 million square feet of pavers have been installed in North America, and the popularity of these materials is rising steadily. Numerous options exist for size, shape, color and texture. When installed correctly, the paver surface is flexible, withstanding loads from traffic, wear and weather. The joints between each paver are filled with sand; this enables loads to be transferred to adjacent units in a pattern similar to asphalt. The joints eliminate the cracking common to concrete surfaces. If problems underground require excavation, the pavers are simply removed and later replaced; no materials are wasted. Most paver installations allow air and moisture to penetrate, allowing for the health of plant roots. Pavers stand up well to snow removal processes

and resist deicing salts better than conventional asphalt or concrete pavement. Installation Basics Of utmost importance in paver installation (and also in many other hardscape installations) is proper treatment of the underlying soil and imported base. Basically, four to twelve inches of soil is first removed from the area; the subsoil is compacted (using a vibrating plate compactor) and then several inches of aggregate (crushed rock) is added and compacted thoroughly. Additional aggregate is added and compacted until the required level is met. As noted, the thickness of the base will vary depending on native soil type and climate. After installation of the aggregate, a bed of sand is installed and screeded level; pavers are installed in the chosen pattern and sand is swept into the joints. Now the plate compactor is used over the surface and additional sand is brushed in; this process is repeated until

the joints are completely filled (see photo). After cleaning, a sealer can be applied to the surface. An alternative to the concrete curb shown here is one of several edging products made of high strength PVC; these can be formed to curves as well as straight runs. The above is a brief overview only; the do it yourself installer should study thoroughly all pertinent installation instructions and specifications and if needed, consult with an engineer or other professional.

By Helen Ellison Special to The Villager We are all familiar with vegetable flowers in the form of Cauliflower, Broccoli and Artichokes, but other, more ornamental flowers have been used in the cuisine of cultures all over the world for thousands of years. The Romans were keen on them, as were the ancient Chinese, and European medieval writings talk about feasts of venison cooked with marigolds and violets in salads. Using peppery Nasturtium flowers in salads and sweet, perfumed rose petals in desserts is quite well known, but did you also know: The young shoots of Hostas are good spinach alternative - Hostakopita is a Greek spinach pie made with hosta shoots and in Japan nori maki sushi is filled with parboiled hosta shoots marinated in soy sauce, sugar & salt. They can also be steamed like asparagus. Only use young shoots though as older leaves are too tough. Hemerocallis - Day Lily - the flowers and buds have a sweet nutty flavour and look pretty in salads. (Don't use other types of

lilies though as they are poisonous!) Violets & Pansies - the sweet, fragrant flowers can be used in salads, desserts and drinks and can be crystallised for cake decoration. Sunflowers - we all know you can eat the seeds, but did you know you can also eat the buds & petals? The petals have a bitter-sweet taste and can be used in salads. The unopened buds can be steamed and have a flavour similar to artichokes. Lilac - the flowers have a floral, slightly lemony flavour and can be used in salads. Honeysuckle - the flowers have a sweet honey flavour and can be used as a garnish for salads and desserts. (Don't eat the berries though as they are

poisonous). Fuchsias - the vibrant flowers look great as a garnish. Campanula - the narrow leaves make a sweet addition to salads. Yucca - the white flowers have a thick and crunchy texture and a sweet flavour. Be careful of the spines at the tips of the leaves when picking though! Typha - Reed Mace the young shoots taste similar to water chestnuts and the rhizome can be eaten raw or cooked, or dried and ground into flour! Even the humble Daisies and Dandelions in your lawn can be picked and used as garnishes. It's fun to use some of these more unusual edible garden plants, but do be careful you are sure what


they are, as so many of our common garden plants are in fact poisonous. If in doubt, leave it out! Also, never use insecticides or chemicals on plants you may want to eat, and make sure you wash them carefully first - at least to get rid of the creepy-crawlies!

Beautiful lawn ornaments help to create curb appeal By Angie Loomis Special to the Villager Are you looking for ways to improve your curb appeal? Whether or not you are in the market to sell your house or you just want to up your neighbor's yard, I have the solution for you. Some people think it is just too much work or too much money to do but this couldn't be further from the truth! There are lots of fun, easy and affordable ways to dress up your yard using lawn ornaments. Lawn ornaments can come in forms of almost anything so use your imagination. One easy way to start out with is using stepping stones. Stepping stones in your lawn and garden can serve two good purposes. For one, they take up space. For example, if your grass is not doing so well, distract attention from it by placing stepping stones on top of the grass as a path or to create a design. Another purpose stepping stones serve is a walkway to and from. When it rains out, chances are the grass or mud will get your feet wet and dirty and then you have to drag that in the house with you. By using stepping stones you can avoid stepping in the mud on rainy days. Stepping stones also can provide an assortment of colors or one bold color of your choosing. Consider using stepping stones if you have a bad lawn to begin with. Another great way to add to your curb appeal is to add color. You can do this in many ways but one good way that is so easy and versatile is using garden planters. You can find an assortment of garden planters that come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Choose garden planters that are easy to move so that you can move them during the day if they need more sun or less sun. Choose a variety of colorful flowers or plants to place in your garden planters. Or choose a variety of different color garden


!!!!!!!!+,-./01!$2!!345!(64! !!!!!!!!789!:!;<'=!>?(@A!**@BCD@@! !!!!!!!!EEE#8,-./0F&0F.8G8#F<! ! planters if you want to stick with one or two kinds of plants. This is why garden planters are so versatile. They can be moved anywhere and switched out any time to go with your color scheme. Garden planters are definitely an easy way to go when wanting to add some different colors or take away different colors. Wind spinners are another great way to decorate your yard and enhance curb appeal. If you are unfamiliar with wind spinners, they are made of steel, are 3d, come in a variety of different colors and designs and turn in the wind or the slightest breeze. You can hang wind spinners from tree branches, hooks, porches, decks, ceilings, you name it. They usually come with a swivel to attach the wind spinner to the hanging string. Wind spinners are beautiful and usually catch the attention of anybody passing by. So using them to enhance curb appeal is a great way to invite buyers to look at your house. You can get wind spinners in almost any theme, color and size. Browse around for the best wind spinners out there that have a life-time rust-proof guarantee! These wind spinners will stand the test of time. Starting from the ground up you can create curb appeal for very little money and the best part is that you can take most, if not all the lawn ornaments with you after you use them to sell your home.

Equipment Traders branch out to lawns and gardens Nelson Zandbergen Etcetera Publications WINCHESTER — It didn’t take long for the new line of Castelgarden lawn tractors to turn heads at the Equipment Traders yard on County Rd. 31. “We pulled out the first ones this morning, and I’ve already had two people come in and ask about them,” says John Stewart Bouwers, co-owner of the business in partnership with his father, John Bouwers Sr., on a sunny day in mid May. In operation locally since 2000 and based since 2009 at the corner of 31 and Holmes Rd., the firm has traditionally focused on the farm equipment sector, a vocation of senior’s for over 50 years. While continuing to serve the traditional farmoriented base, the younger Bouwers says they’re branching out more aggressively into home, garden and hobby-farmer market as well. This year’s addition of the consumer-level Castelgarden brand is part of that strategy, and augments the larger Kioti garden tractors and AGRIEase pto-driven cutters and finish mowers carried by Equipment Traders. The red Castelgarden line comprises a variety of push mowers, walk-behind tillers and, of course, several riding lawnmower models. The riding category includes traditional tractorlike lawnmowers with the motor mounted in front of the driver and cutting widths up to 43 inches. Several other units have the more urbane appearance that comes with a rear-mounted motor, including four topof-the-line XM and XKseries models with the mowing deck attached at the front of the machine. The XK’s also feature articulated steering — the body pivots behind the front wheels — allowing for so-called “zero-turn” performance. “Most use a Briggs & Stratton engine, but some have a Honda engine,” says Bouwers of the Castelgarden lineup, manufactured in Europe by Global Garden Products, according to company liter-

ature. “I’m almost positive they’re made in Sweden,” he adds. The Castelgarden tillers are available with an innovative swing-out design, a nice touch that prevents the operator from walking in the worked-up furrow. Unlike the big-box retailers, Equipment Traders will take your existing lawnmower on trade (just as the name indicates), and all warranty work is done inhouse by the firm’s veteran farm-equipment mechanic. Gilles Rozon has worked with senior for the last 30 years. The repair shop handles all brands of lawn and garden equipment, Bouwers also points out. “If somebody has a Cub Cadet, or anything, they can bring it here,” he says. “And our regular shop rate is a fair amount less than the average shop.” The firm naturally stocks a variety of parts and lubricants for purchase over the front counter, and deals with three major aftermarket suppliers. Folks in the market for something a little bigger than the average lawnmow-

er can graduate to a 20-hp garden tractor (or larger) with Equipment Traders’ help as well. They can start by having a look at the gleaming orange Kioti tractors arrayed in front of the building. The impressive Koreanmade machines are available with a variety of equipment and backhoe attachments to go on the threepoint hitch. And AGRIEase’s towbehind mowers, gravel scrapers, blades and other implements are an economical choice when hitched to one of those Kiotis, or any tractor. “They have very, very affordable prices,” Bouwers says of the Chinese-made AGRIEase units distributed by a B.C. company. “Nobody can touch us on a lot of those prices.” For hobbyists and gardeners extraordinaire looking for something different and fun, Equipment Traders also offers the Kioti Mechron off-road, fourwheeled machine. Available with a hydraulic dump box, the diesel-powered Mechron certainly offers the sense of usefulness and pleasure in one mean-looking package.

2nd Annual Russell Run on the right track By Jason Isaac The Villager Editor RUSSELL - The course may have bee soggy but the spirits were high and dry at the 2nd Annual Russell Run held on Saturday, May 14.Organized by Tom Huisman and members of the Russell Community Sports Club including RCSC President Marc Lalonde, this years Run featured 101 runners in the 5-kilometre marathon and 48 runners in the 1.2-kilometre Kids Run, showing an increase in the number of participants over last year. All the action started and finished on the race track behind Russell High School, however parts of the 5K became a road race through the streets of Russell and back along the Russell Recreational Trail. That race was led by pace 'rabbit' Greg Bradley of Greg's Custom Fitness in Russell who along with Russell's Replay Sports sponsored much of the event and provided some of the prizes for those who came in with the top three best times in their age category. "I can't thank everyone enough for all their hard work helping to put the Russell Run on again this year," remarked Huisman, who ran the 5K with his wife and two daughters. "We have proven that this event can be successful and will continue to be held for a long time to come in Russell."

STA dominates RHS RMBL wraps up season

on the rugby pitch

By Darren Matte Villager Sports RUSSELL - St. Thomas and Russell were originally scheduled to meet, in girls rugby action, on May 4 at Russell High, but the game was rescheduled to May 9 at St. Thomas. A huge crowd of St. Thomas students turned out to watch the rivals clash. The Ravens got out to a great start, Shelby Raven took the pass in the middle of the pitch, ran wide left and ran it all the way to the house setting the ball down in the centre so that she could easily convert her own conversion after the try, 7-0 Ravens. Raven was not done there, as on the following possession she got the ball on the sideline and went over again for her second try, 12-0. St. Thomas continued to apply the pressure, and with their much larger roster size they were able to keep up their tempo. St. Thomas then stepped up the aggression as they physically took it to the Timber Wolves. When Russell finally did generate pressure, St, Thomas stole the ball and kicked it out of danger. Later, Lindsay Lovenuck broke a tackle and dashed up the middle all the way for a try, 17-0 at that point. Just before the half, Erin Grady got the pass and just barely crossed over for another score, 22-0 at the break. St. Thomas would not relent as they started the second half with yet another try and successful conversion, 29-0. Then after Russell kicked off, Shelby Chambers broke through the T-Wolves formation and headed for the score to make it 34-0. On the next possession, the Ravens were at it again as Danielle Erdelyi brought the ball in for the touchdown, 39-0. Later on, St. Thomas regained possession and Danielle Bergeron broke through the defense and crossed over to extend the lead, 44-0. The T-Wolves were finally able to respond. After scooping the ball out of a scrum, they moved to the sideline, Katie Bakker took off and ran it all the way, cutting the lead to 44-5. Russell built on that momentum and on their next possession brought the ball all the way down to the goal line. After being stuffed by the Ravens defense,

Floor hockey all-stars

with annual awards banquet By Helena Lanthier Special to The Villager RUSSELL - On April 30, the Russell Minor Broomball League (RMBL) held their annual potluck banquet at St. Thomas Aquinas CHS (STA). There we handed out our award for Most Sportsmanlike Players (MSP) and Most Improved Players (MIP) for each individual team, and Most Team Effort (MTE) boy and girl for each division. We also presented Top Scorer for the Peewee and the Bantam/Midget division. RMBL also presented an award for the Top Goalie in the League. The last hardware to be handed out was the coveted "Broomball Spirit Award", which is given out to one of our older players who has shown sportsmanship, team effort, enthusiasm for the sport, eagerness to help out and gives his/her time to volunteer with the broomball organization. All the winners received keeper awards, which were mini broomball sticks with an engraved plate.

they finally crashed over and scored their second try of the game. This time it was Caity Blanchard who got the points for Russell. Those points seemed to upset the Ravens who then put their starters back in to work on some plays. Chambers, almost immediately after coming back into the game, crossed over for the second time in the match. Halle Matthews then added a pair of tries as this one finally ended for the T-Wolves with a 59-10 Ravens win. The Ravens followed up this win with a 17-0 victory against Vankleek Hill Colligate and advanced to play Rockland District High in the finals.

26th soccer season underway By Nanno Habets Special to The Villager RUSSELL - Although the rain has delayed the first day of soccer, everything is in place for the 26th season of the Russell Soccer Club (RSC). With over 1400 members, the RSC is close to breaking yet another registration record. The Club's Board of Directors has spent countless hours over the past three months to ensure that soccer in Russell continues to offer great programming for players of all ages and all abilities. The huge undertaking, ranging from registering all the players and making up teams to ordering uniforms and equipment for 1400 players, and preparing all the fields, can be attributed to the tireless effort from all the RSC volunteers that help in the success of the league every season. Over the last month, the field crew has been de-thatching, aerating, rolling and mowing the fields as well as marking out the soccer pitches. The past two Saturdays volunteers were out putting up the nets, moving goal posts to the new fields, filling in trenches left from the ongoing construction of the

lights, seeding and fertilizing. The result Russell has some of the best fields in the Ottawa area! Two of the new mini fields will be used this year for the first time and none too soon as the club lost two fields resulting from the construction of the new Russell Library Branch. The new full-field will not be available until later in the summer as the lighting project has fallen behind schedule due to the exceptionally wet spring we are experiencing. This delay has made scheduling much more difficult as the club has two extra competitive teams this year as well as an expanded adult recreation program. For the next two months Russell will once again experience the mini traffic jams as players make their way to the various schools for some soccer. The RSC is truly grateful to the hundreds of volunteers and its board members who make all this possible. For more information about the Russell Soccer Club including game schedule, check out their official website at GO RAIDERS!

The Green Team was the winner of the Russell Public School fun floor hockey tournament on May 10. The tournament was open to all students in grades five and six who wanted to participate in the event. The floor hockey tournament was the final event of a series of tournaments this year. Previous tournaments included Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball and Handball. 42 students participated in the tournament. Green defeated Red in the finals, Above, one of the new Russell Soccer Club mini fields with the lighting while Blue beat Yellow in overtime to win the third place game.
