Aiden Leggett of Smiths Falls has his Team Canada hockey jersey signed by Walter Gretzky at a charity hockey game in Arnprior Feb. 16 between the NHL Alumni team of former National Hockey League stars and the Law Enforcement all-stars made up of area OPP officers. The game raised money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run in support of Special Olympics. Gretzky, the father of NHL superstar Wayne Gretzky, is the alumni team’s guest coach and ambassador.

News - Settlement agreements approved by the court on Monday, Feb. 24 will give access to compensation to former residents of the Rideau Regional and Southwestern Regional Centres who suffered harm while living at the facilities between 1963 and 2009. The combined value of the settlements is $32.7 million. The settlements were approved in Superior Court on Feb. 24 as the result of class action lawsuits brought against Ontario by former residents. Class members will be able to apply for compensation through an independent claims administrator. If money is left over after class members have been compensated and legal fees have been paid, Ontario will invest up to $2.7 million in programs that benefit people with a developmental disability. This is in addition to Ontario’s commitment to provide up to $5 million for the same purpose under the Huronia Regional Centre settlement, approved on Dec. 3, 2013. The Rideau Regional and Southwestern Regional Centres were residential facilities for

News - Your health and the health of our communities is a primary concern for staff at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital and it’s for this reason that starting on Saturday, March 1, smoking will not be permitted anywhere on site in Smiths Falls or Perth. Staff will be implementing a smokefree property policy as part of its commitment to providing the healthiest environment for patients, staff, physicians, volunteers and visitors. “This decision sends a clear message to our constituents that prevention is as important as treatment of illness and that we at the PSFDH are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment,” said Lynda Hendriks, chair of the board of directors.

Smoking will no longer be permitted anywhere on the hospital property, inside or out. All staff, patients, visitors, volunteers will be required to leave the hospital property entirely – including parking lots – if they wish to smoke. Tobacco enforcement officers will be patrolling the area and if smokers are caught on the property, an incident report will be sent to hospital staff, said Linda Bisonette, president and CEO. “It’s actually a $305 fine, if caught,” she said. Bisonette added that they have wanted to bring in this policy for some time but because the hospital has been under construction, they didn’t want to send people into the street for a smoke. “It was really a safety concern about sending people into the street while we had construction going on as that was re-

ally difficult,” she said. “But now that’s all finished and we can implement this new enforcement.” Tobacco-related diseases cost the Ontario economy more than $1.6 billion in direct health care costs and account for 500,000 hospital days per year in the province. “As a healthcare leader, it is essential that Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital take a proactive role in protecting anyone who comes to our sites from the harmful effects of second-hand smoke,” added Bisonette. “We know smoking is the leading preventable cause of death and disease in Ontario. It is a major risk factor for chronic disease such as heart disease, stroke, cancer and emphysema.” For many years, smoking has been banned within nine metres of any hospital entrance. “We are taking the extra step of

banning smoking anywhere on hospital property this March,” Bisonette said. On March 1 signage at the two hospital sites will be posted stating that all property is smoke-free. “The medical staff supports and applauds the decision of the board of directors to implement the Smoke Free Property Policy,” said Dr. Peter Roney, chief of staff. “As physicians, we see the impact of smoking on the health of our patients on a daily basis.” Staff training in smoking cessation is currently under way and physician ordering of Nicotine Replacement Therapy through the hospital pharmacies is planned. The hospital offers its thanks, in advance, for everyone’s support in maintaining the smoke-free sites to combat this avoidable cause of cancer.

The facilities closed in 2009 and 2008, respectively. “I am pleased that we have reached a fair settlement with former residents of the Southwestern and Rideau Regional Centres who were harmed there,” said John Gerretsen, Attorney General. “We cannot change the past, but we will continue to do everything we can to ensure that all Ontarians – regardless of their abilities – are treated with the compassion, dignity and respect they deserve.” Ted McMeekin, Minister of Community and Social Services, added: “Our vision is an inclusive Ontario where people have the supports they need to live as independently as possible within our communities. We are all enriched by this diversity.” On Dec. 9, 2013, Premier Kathleen Wynne delivered a

New Valley Death CafÊ March 23 in Blacks Corners Community – A what? Death cafÊs are not so much a place but rather an event. Group participants gather over cake and coffee/tea/juice and have a conversation about death with an amazing quality of dialogue. The first death cafÊ was offered by Jon Underwood in September 2011 in the UK and has spread throughout Europe, the US, Australia and Canada with more than 562 being held since its inception. Underwood based his model on the work of Bernard Crettaz, a Swiss sociologist who says talking about death leads to authenticity. And how does the death cafÊ unfold? Well, after being welcomed by the host, the group itself leads the discussion with participants bringing their own insights, ponderings and points of view. Some may come with an experience of death that has impacted their views; others may want to discuss how death has taught them to live. Participants are asked to treat each person’s input with respect and confidentiality. This is not a debate forum but a place of respectful sharing where people are welcome to discuss the topics they wish. For example, some discussions

have considered living memorials, green funerals, planning your funeral, bucket lists, what happens after death and more. Underwood says, “When people sit down to talk about death, the pretense kind of falls away, and people talk very openly and authentically, and they say things in front of strangers which are really profound and beautiful‌â€? A study by the charity, Dying Matters, found more than 70 per cent of us are uncomfortable talking about death and that less than a third of us have spoken to family members about this. It is important to note that a death cafĂŠ is not a bereavement/grief support resource. There is nothing being sold or any philosophy or religion being promoted. This is non-denominational and non-profit. The Valley Death CafĂŠ will be held on March 23 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Brunton Community Hall, Blacks Corners. Patti Koeslag, life-cycle celebrant is hosting the event. There is no cost (a small donation towards expenses appreciated). Visit deathcafe.com to register or call Patti at 613-253-3099.

Helping victims of violence feel safer in their environments By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

News – A new mobile tracking device is being used by Victim Services (VS) of Leeds Grenville to help keep an eye on clients whose lives are in danger. Giving peace of mind to victims of spousal abuse is the primary target of

the GPS, which works like a lifeline in that once activated by a client, police or emergency workers can be on site to assist within moments. “It’s tracking (a victim) at all times, and once they activate it, it sends a message to the communication centre and we can dispatch emergency workers immediately,” said Sonya Jodoin, the

executive director of Victim Services Leeds Grenville. Used for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, or even elder abuse, it’s just one more way that Victim Services can help keep its clients safe. “It’s a tool,” Jodoin said. “It won’t guarantee safety, but for those in a rural area, especially where there is no cell service, it will work to keep track of a victim.” How it works When Victim Services is called out to assist a victim of a domestic assault, volunteers with the organization will help the victim with a game plan for safety measurers. That may include ensuring the victim is safe from immediate threats of harm, transportation to a safe place, like Interval House, or it could mean bringing in more VS team

members to help board up windows and doors, or change locks, if damage is present. If after an assessment by VS volunteers, it appears that the victim is in immediate danger, they can be assessed for this GPS device. “We do assess victims to see if they would like the extra protection,” said Jodoin. “It won’t work for someone who had the intention of going back to their abusive relationship. There are safety precautions that they must adhere to and they have to work with our staff… checking in frequently, as it’s tracking them at all times.” The organization has just one GPS unit at this time, with the hope of adding another nine devices. The single unit has already helped one victim of domestic violence. Amanda’s story

Kimberly Wright, community development coordinator of Interval House, Brockville, and Sonya Jodoin, executive director for Victim Services of Leeds Grenville, show a new GPS device put in place recently to help victims of domestic violence feel safer in their home. Like a lifeline, the device is with a victim and is tracking movements at all times. If a victim feels threatened by a spouse in a domestic relationship, a push of a button on the GPS will alert staff at Victim Services headquarters and police will be dispatched immediately.

For the sake of her safety, her name has been changed. Amanda Jones says she was able to breathe a sign of relief when she used the GPS device. This is her story… Living in the country and a victim of domestic violence sure did make me feel nervous, due to living so far away from the city. With hardly any family in the area and friends in the city I felt like I was exposed and alone. VS purchased a GPS tracker for me due to my isolation. I can’t even express in words how much safer I felt. I was able to go outside knowing someone knew where I was. The GPS tracker was always with me and made me secure.

Tim Hortons Bowl for Kids Sake strikes big in Lanark County; raises $80,000 Community – Local bowling alleys were jam packed full as more than 750 bowlers came out to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County on Feb. 22 in Smiths Falls, Perth and Carleton Place. A total of $80,000.00 was raised to fund mentoring programs for this local children’s charity. This exceeded their goal. Bowl for Kids is a Canadian tradition from coast to coast. Big Brothers Big Sisters is not funded by the government, and this fun filled event raises almost 30 per cent of the agency’s annual budget. The community came together once again to help fund programs for local children. Participants put together teams made up of friends, families or co-workers and brought in pledges. Local sponsors covered event costs so that all funds raised by the public could go right to the programs. Sponsors included; Tim Hortons as title sponsor, as well as Prodecal, Crain & Schooley, Lake 88, Cogeco, Hinton Dodge Chrysler, EMC, Jack FM, TD Canada Trust, Guy Saumure and Sons, and Impression Printing. Many sponsors also raised pledges. As an example, Tim Hortons’ teams throughout the county raised well over $4500 on top of their sponsorship and had more than 70 employees participating. “Lanark County believes in what we do, and they tell us that through Bowl for Kids every year – for that we are truly grateful.” says Jennifer Miller, the agency’s executive direc-

tor. “We are not funded by the government so events like Tim Hortons Bowl for Kids Sake helps ensure we can continue serving local kids.” Some groups and businesses who couldn’t bowl had in house fundraisers, including St. John Catholic High School in Perth who are having competitions between classes, and various restaurants such as Two Guys for Lunch and The Masonry having special dinners. Colby McGeachy, an accounting firm in Almonte, raised almost $10,000 by using the agency’s online fundraising platform. Hundreds of people participated, some dressing in costume such as Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute teachers who arrived looking like masked bandits, Vic Bennett Motors from Carleton Place in masks, and the Ravens Candy Shoppe in Smiths Falls that dressed like zombies. The Nintendo Wii event held in Perth was a big hit with young and old alike. This was the second year for trying this format and it went over well. Teams like the LGBT, both Perth and Lanark Civitan clubs, the Lanark Youth Centre and others had a fun time at the Perth Civitan Hall. There were many special moments, including one with Susan Heggtveit of Perth who had her highest pledge amount in three years, collecting door to door, and raising $644.55.

Crown wards to benefit from new partnership agreement By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

The Partnership Agreement for Student Success was launched Feb. 21 at the Marianne Van Silfhout Gallery at St. Lawrence College in Brockville. In back, Ted Whiteland, program manager, Crown Ward Education Championship Team of Renfrew, Lanark, Leeds and Grenville (CWECT), Cathie Knapp-Fisher, CWECT chair, also of Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville (FCSLLG) and Sue Giff, Krystel MarleauRancourt, Lea MacFarlane, Lisa Trakas and Doug Roughton - members her school work. “In all honesty I had no idea what I was doing (in life). I had to come up with the answers on my own.” She hopes the CWECT and the agreement will pave the way to a future for crown wards, that will be much easier than her own has been thus far. St. Lawrence College, Brockville campus dean Doug Roughton, acting as MC, recalled while his daughter was in high school, she met a youth who was in care. The two became fast friends. His daughter’s friend faced a number of struggles and challenges as a crown ward, but with a solid support network, she was able to make her way through college and university. He explained she was one of the more fortunate youth in care. Calling the partnership agreement, both critical and significant, Allan Hogan, executive director for FCSLLG, commented it is, “Centered around a commitment to children and youth.” The agreement will aid in providing children in care, “Helping them to dream the dreams of a great future like everyone else.” Frank Hummell, principal of

student success for the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) quoted Henry Ford, whom said of work, “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and (but truly) working together is success.” “As great a document is as produced by the committee (CWECT), we have to remember it’s just a beginning,” he quantified his use of Ford’s words. A culmination of a lot of hard work, the partnership agreement, “Recognizes and acknowledges our crown wards who might just need a little more help,” through their educational journey, Knapp-Fisher said. Dr. Donaleen Hawes, superintendent of education for the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) noted the agreement, “Recognizes the partnerships we need to have to really support some of our most vulnerable students.” She said each partner agency is a voice for the crown ward children and youth. “We believe in an equal chance for all our students to succeed,” Stephane Vachon, surintendant de l’education for the Conseil des ecoles publiques

of the CWECT team. In middle Frances McGarry, John LaFirst and Keitha Quigley of FCSLLG.

The CWECT logo and brochure were also presented that day. Both were designed by crown ward Frances McGarry, Knapp-Fisher presented her with a bouquet after the announcement. About CWECT

“In 2007, Ontario set up Crown Ward Educational Championship Teams across the province. There are currently 21 teams in place, each representing a geographical region within the province. Team members are made up of representatives from school boards, post-secondary institutes, Family and Children’s Services, local support agencies and various ministries that support crown wards. The Partnership Agreement for Student Suc-

cess that has been signed sets the foundation for the work that is done by these partner groups to support crown wards in the local region,” according to information provided by Ted Whiteland, program manager, CWECT. The CWECT brochure outlines the team as a, “Community partnership designed to promote better education, training and employment opportunities for all youth with crown wardship status.”

News – A plan of action for support of crown ward children was launched with much excitement, Feb. 21 at the Marianne Van Silfhout Gallery, St. Lawrence College, Brockville campus. While the agreement’s launch was celebrated, with full blown vigor - it was also noted it is just the beginning of many positive steps forward. The Partnership Agreement for Student Success is between, “local French and English District School Boards and Family and Children Services Regional Offices in Renfrew, Lanark, Leeds & Grenville Counties (and) was recently signed to support crown ward children and youth residing in Renfrew and Lanark, Leeds & Grenville Counties,” notes Crown Ward Education Championship Team of Renfrew, Lanark, Leeds and Grenville (CWECT) information. The agreement has been worked on for two years now, explained Cathie Knapp-Fisher, CWECT chair, also of Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville (FCSLLG), and has a goal of making it easier for crown ward children to maneuver their way through their educational journeys. Former crowd ward, and employee of the FCSLLG, youth rep, Keitha Quigley, is well known to Knapp-Fisher. A successful high school graduate, she has had success at St. Lawrence College and will be returning to take on an additional course. However, her path to success was full of struggles. “So many times I wanted to drop out. I was so very overwhelmed because I didn’t have someone to go to,” she explained finances were extremely tight as well. She once had to leave a college function because she wasn’t able to afford a $1.50 hot dog, and didn’t want her peers to know. She worked hard to pay her bills, rent and to stay healthy. “When you have to work for every penny you make, you have to grow up very fast,” she said wide eyed as she remembered. She did receive some funding from FCSLLG, however it “Wasn’t enough.” While she did have parents, things had become rocky and, “I was alone.” Since then, she and her parents have mended fences and are very close. Even finding a place to rent was a struggle, as her landlord did not want to rent to a child in care. However, KnappFisher stepped in and was able to convince the landlord to give Quigley a chance. She didn’t want to go to the food bank, she felt there were others in more dire need than she. “Because of the fallout with my family I felt like I had no one there to help me or support me,” she recounted finding it stressful to concentrate and find the dedication needed for

CDSBEO, schools work toward strengths-based culture of practice to eliminate the downward trend for students in high school, and to increase resiliency strengths for those who are vulnerable, as well as for those students with significant challenges.

For the past 16 years, CDSBEO schools have had the opportunity to participate in the École de neige three day camp.

Meals are served in a cafeteria style format where students engage in French conversation throughout the day. “Students are immersed in rich language opportunities throughout their stay at the

camp. They also take part in improv, journal writing and a scavenger hunt to refine their language skills� stated Dupuis. This year, the CDSBEO had 300 students experience École de neige. The tradition, which began in 1998, creates unforgettable memories, and allows students to make positive connections to learning French as a second language.

Assessing developmental strengths and resiliency factors is critical for promoting and supporting the development of positive mental health. Schools have used various strategies to deal with building resiliency, and to help resolve conflict in a proactive way. Ralph Sharples, principal of St. Mary Catholic School in Carleton Place, spoke about a few of the strategies that have been implemented at their school to improve student resiliency. The use of proactive circles, and other restorative practices is one effective strategy to deal with incidents. The WITS program (Walk away, Ignore, Talk it out, Seek help), is another strategy which has been implemented. “We’ve found it to be very effective to make small changes, such as to have lunch recess first, and then bring students together who have experienced an incident during lunch. We all sit together and break bread, while discussing the issue, or incident which just occurred,� explained Sharples. The next steps for the initiative includes an action plan based on the most recent collection of data, using various strategies and elements to help students develop positive coping mechanisms.

tural activities,â€? explained France Dupuis, FSL consultant. “French plays, presentations, and singers are integrated into the curriculum, as well as various excursions, such as the grade 10/11 QuĂŠbec city trip, the grade 11/12 trip to France, École verte for grade 7/8 students, and the very popular École de neige for grade 5/6 students.â€? Cultural activities increase opportunities for students in all FSL programs to improve and apply their oral communica-

News – The following are highlights from the regular Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) meeting, held Feb. 18 at the board office in Kemptville. Resiliency is an ability to spring back and adapt to life’s challenges with an attitude of hope and optimism. Throughout the CDSBEO, schools are working to develop a strengths-based culture of practice, where students are nurtured to develop their strengths in a positive way. In order to empower individuals and school teams to help students engage in, and better understand their strengths or skills essential for navigating life’s challenges, the board has collected information (beginning in September 2013) via a resiliency survey for students. The survey is designed around 31 developmental strengths which research indicates are key factors in building resiliency in an individual. “The challenge is to create caring relationships and an environment that looks at promise and the hope of new possibilities. It is the attitude of hope and optimism that builds resiliency and positive mental health,� explained Dr. Donaleen Hawes, Superintendent of School Effectiveness. In its second year, the comparative analysis of data has begun to help address mental health concerns for those students who are vulnerable, and who require extra supports to help build their strengths. The surveys completed by students in grade 3 through 12 provide system, school, and student information to assess needs and next steps by school and board staff. “We’re beginning to see now, how the schools are making real gains in resiliency,� explained Paula Perrault, Principal of Special Education, in a presentation to the board on Feb. 18. The survey results, which include data for the same students over the last two years, and also for the same grade comparison, allows the board to examine student, school, and board growth. The board is extremely pleased by the evidence of increases in student resiliency and ability to cope with challenges. All grades between grade 3 through 11, have shown an improvement compared to the same grade last year. The board is also able to now look at students as they move through the grades; for example the resiliency of the grade 3 students, now in grade 4, has increased by 6.5 per cent. The goal is to develop and support resiliency strengths for students with significant or moderate strengths,

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Stop hydraulic fracturing in Ontario now DEAR EDITOR: Hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” of deep shale deposits has yielded huge amounts of natural gas and crude oil over the last eight to nine years. The process, which uses enormous amounts of fresh water and proprietary chemicals, has been developed largely in the United States (US). In 2005 hydraulic fracturing was exempted by the US Congress from seven federal statutes, including the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act, the so-called “Haliburton Loophole.” Without these exemptions the process may not have been financially viable. The oil and gas industry have kept many aspects of the process secret through claims of proprietary information and by silencing disputing landowners with payouts and non-disclosure agreements. State governments are struggling to catch up with adequate regulatory frameworks. Shale that contains trapped natural gas and oil typically lies at 5,000 to 10,000 feet below ground. There are huge deposits in North America, most notably in Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York State. The latter two states are over

the Marcellus and Utica shales, that extend beneath Lake Erie into southwestern Ontario. There are shale deposits in the Sarnia area and near the greater Toronto area which extend northwest towards Georgian Bay. A small band of shale deposits are also present south of the Ottawa River, east of Ottawa. Ontario shales lie closer to the surface than US shale in two regimes, zero to 600 feet and at about 3000 feet. Water bearing strata are typically within 300 feet of the surface. Western Canada and the Maritimes also hold large potential reserves of shale-based natural gas and oil. In Quebec, between Montreal and Quebec City, on both sides of the St. Lawrence River, there is a huge deposit of natural gas bearing shale. Fracking begins with drilling through the upper water bearing layers and cementing in a casing which is supposed to prevent contamination of drinking water by fracking fluids or gas. Recovery of shale gas employs a newly developed drilling technique wherein the drill bit is See LETTER page 11

COMMENTARY

Get healthy at home

Editorial – Between full-time jobs, shuttling kids to and from extra-curricular activities and the rising cost of food, sometimes it can be difficult to create healthy meals at home. But the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, along with help from the Dietitians of Canada, can help solve that problem. March is Nutrition Month and the health unit has set up a page on their website where throughout the month, they will be offering tips and links on how to stay healthy. It will include, recipes, videos and other information for residents on making fast, well-rounded meals and snacks at home. According to Marie Traynor, a registered dietitian with the health unit, people need to “manage time, encourage creativity, improve food budgets, learn and share important life skills, reinforce cooking lessons and experience different tastes, colours and textures” in order to re-energize themselves in the kitchen. Just like it’s important to have positive role models in other aspects of life, so too is having a strong kitchen role model to emulate. While easy, prepared foods can create a diet that’s too high in added fat, salt and sugar and can also be more expensive than creating meals at home. By shopping smart in the grocery store and by planning a menu for the week’s worth of foods on the weekend, it’s easier to keep costs down and eat healthy foods. And you don’t have to be a professional chef to do any of this. Setting goals, finding simple recipes, involving the whole family in meal preparation and taking the time to make a lifestyle change is all you need. Throughout March, visit www.dietitians.ca or www. healthunit.org for valuable tips on eating nutritious, healthy meals.

Mother’s lessons on life proved valuable for Mary Lifestyle – Sometimes I got tired listening to what Mother called her lessons on life. Just about everything I did provided me with a lesson on life according to Mother. And I had to admit most of them rolled off me like rain off a duck’s back. But she persevered, oh, how she persevered! We learned early about honesty. According to Mother, honesty was right up there with going to church every Sunday. And modesty was another thing she preached about. It took my sister Audrey to explain to me that the modesty Mother was preaching about had nothing to do with running around the house in our flour bag underwear, or taking our Saturday night bath in front of everyone in the kitchen, but had everything to do with bragging about ourselves. And certainly envy, could lead us straight to Hell in a basket! And then came the day when I learned about still another lesson on life. It had to do with a young girl who went to the Northcote School.

Rather, she went to the Northcote school when she could. It wasn’t unusual for her to miss several days in a row, and we all knew it had nothing to do with catching the measles or the whooping cough. It had everything to do with if she was needed at home. Even though she was only a few years older than I was, she was the oldest girl of a large family. And the chore of helping her mother often fell on her shoulders. We were poor like most other families around us, deep in the Depression, but my sister Audrey said her family was even poorer than we were. Her father worked in the bush miles from their farm, and was often away for weeks at a time. That left her mother to tend the farm, leaving little time to look after the younger children. And so my little classmate, more often than not, had to stay at home to lend a hand. There was always a sadness about this young girl. You could see it in her face.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

She had long dark hair, and often she would tell me how she wished she had coloured ribbons like I had to tie it off her face. And I knew without a doubt, there simply wasn’t enough extra money for hair ribbons to replace the elastic she used to tie her hair up in a knot on the top of her head. My hair ribbons were bought at Walker’s Store in Renfrew only if Mother had a few extra pennies from selling her wares door to door. But at least I had hair ribbons! And so I decided I would take two or three of my best ribbons, put them in a little paper bag, and hand them to the News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Howaida Sorour, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Kelly Kent, Jennifer Westendorp DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-283-3182 ,ext. 138 CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Judy Michaelis Email: jmichaelis@perfprint.ca

young girl at school. It was on one of the rare days she was at school, and I told her not to open the bag until she got home. “No peeking,” I said. When I got home, I told Mother what I had done, and said I felt so good about it I was going to phone my best friend Velma and tell her about my good deed. Well, Mother told me to sit down, and I knew without a doubt, another lesson on life was coming. She had that look about her. And Mother said that when you did a good deed, if you told anyone about it, it erased the deed. I had a hard time grasping what she meant, since I knew I had done the deed, so how could it be erased? But Mother went on in great detail, telling me good deeds were no longer good deeds if you bragged about them. I still wasn’t convinced, but as always, Mother’s word was the law. And so I kept to myself my giving the ribbons to ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea McMurtry SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

my young classmate at the Northcote School. When she next came to school, several days later, so I knew she was needed at home, her long black hair was tied high on her head, and there was one of the long ribbons from the brown paper bag I had given her. She gave me the biggest smile, and neither of us said a word. No one knew but the two of us how she came to have brightly coloured ribbons tying up her long dark hair. A warm feeling came over me, and I knew then what Mother meant when she said a good deed is erased if you brag about it. Another lesson learned, and this one that has stayed with me since that day Mother sat me down in the kitchen so many years ago. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

REGIONAL NEWS gradually turned to the horizontal to exploit the shale deposits. Multiple horizontal wells, typically eight to 12, can be created at one surface location. In order to start the gas flow the shale is fractured using perforation techniques, sometime with shaped explosive charges; this initiates the fractures in the shale. A mixture of water, sand and chemicals are then pumped under very high pressure into the fractured area to extend the fracturing and stimulate the flow of natural gas. The sand or “proppant” holds the small fissures open to facilitate the gas flow. Some of the frack water flows back to the surface and is collected in tanks or pits and the initial flow of gas is vented or flared until the flowback has ceased. Then the well is put into the producing phase and the gas is collected and pipelined to market. The shale deposits yield saltwater along with the gas, the so-called “produced water.” The risks to the air and water environment from the fracking process are staggering. Water Typically, five million gallons of water, mixed with fracking chemicals and sand are required per

well per frack. Fifty to 90 per cent of this contaminated water is lost during fracking – left behind in the strata. Not only is this water contaminated with toxic chemicals but it has been removed permanently from the water cycle. The contaminated water may, depending on local geology, migrate upwards to contaminate drinking water. The flowback water that does make it to the surface is often stored in open lined pits or tanks that can leak into the water bearing formations below. The flowback water and the produced water are often disposed of by injection into deep waste disposal wells or processed in local sewage treatment plants ill equipped to handle waste water from fracking. Fracking chemicals Fracking products contain: acids, bactericides, corrosion inhibitors, friction reducers, gelling agents, iron controllers, scale inhibitors and surfactants. The US House of Representatives surveyed 14 fracking companies and found the most common constituents in fracking chemical mixtures, apart from sand, were (in order of frequency of use) methanol, isopropanol, ethylene glycol monobutyl ether, ethylene glycol (antifreeze), hydro treated light

petroleum distillates and sodium hydroxide (caustic soda). Methanol, the most common fracking chemical, is considered a cumulative poison with chronic exposure. Other chemicals in use are diesel, napththalene, xylene, hydrogen chloride, toluene, ethyl benzene and benzene which is a known human carcinogen. The oil and gas service companies surveyed used hydraulic fracturing products containing 29 chemicals that are (1) known or possible human carcinogens, (2) regulated under the (US) Safe Drinking Water Act for their risks to human health, or (3) listed as hazardous air pollutants under the (US) Clean Air Act. These 29 chemicals were components of 652 different products used in hydraulic fracturing. Radioactivity in produced water The produced waters or brines, far saltier than seawater, often contain radioactive elements such as strontium and radium. A 2011 United States Geological Survey study found radioactivity in shale wastewater in Pennsylvania 350 times the drinking water standard set by the (US) Environmental Protection Agency. Most disposal wells and treatment plants are not equipped to deal

with radioactive waste.

larly if the water has been contaminated. One Colorado resident indicated that his property value dropped from $559,000 to $280,000 after a fracking operation was set up adjacent to his property. Cleaner than coal myth The argument that fracked natural gas is a cleaner fuel than coal has recently been disproved by a Cornell University study. Largely because of the leakage of fracked methane during production and transport, the energy consumed in its production and the predominant use of methane as a domestic and industrial heating fuel, the green house gas contribution of fracked gas exceeds that of coal. Gasland documentary Josh Fox is a landowner in northeastern Pennsylvania. Before allowing fracking companies access to his land he investigated several rural communities in the USA that have ongoing fracking operations and made a film entitled Gasland documenting what he learned. You will find the film shocking. You can rent the DVD or purchase it at amazon.com. Ontario regulations The Environmental Commissioner of Ontario (ECO), Gord Miller, recommended in his 2010/11 annual report

entitled Engaging Solutions that Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) and Ministry of Environment (MOE) review and publicly report on the sufficiency of the regulatory framework to protect water resources and the natural environment from shale gas extraction. In October 2012 an application was made to the ECO by Ecojustice to review three specific environmental regulations with respect to their applicability to the new technique of hydraulic fracturing. The MNR and MOE have agreed to conduct both reviews but no date for completion of these reviews is available. One can only hope that the MNR and MOE and the Ontario government in general realize that the risks of fracking far outweigh the benefits from this method of extracting natural gas. Surely we can drive our energy future in a more promising direction. Once the ground water is contaminated with fracking chemicals it is lost forever. Moratoriums and bans are being called for all across Canada (particularly in Quebec) and the United States now that the risks are becoming known. Please call upon your MPP and your local municipality and urge them to ban fracking in Ontario. Stephen R. Knowles Yarker, Ontario

Mudds’ Willy Wonka Jr. a sweet treat for the whole family By JEFF MAGUIRE

R0012571250_0227

Arts – Short and sweet! Those are the words which best describe Willy Wonka Jr., the latest offering from the Mississippi Mudds Youth Theatre. I attended the first of six performances Friday night in the Carleton Place Town Hall Auditorium. There was nearly a full house and judging by the sustained applause and cheers everyone enjoyed it as much as I did. Sweet indeed! In this case the word “short” is not to be taken as any form of criticism. What I want to emphasize is that I was left wanting more. This is such a good presentation I was sorry to see it end. The smiling faces of the large (38-member) cast at the final curtain call underlined how satisfied they were with their opening night performance. And so they should be! Co-directors Kate Cooney and Meredith Millman and producer Kim Balazsi have taken a well-known script and put their own distinctive mark on it. This musical version skips along. It was done in less than 90 minutes, including a short intermission. The compact timeframe is perfect for children whose patience can be tested by lengthier presentations. Not that this show is likely to bore even the youngest audience member. It is fast paced, funny, song-filled and the costumes and sets are excellent. I am hopeful there will be even more children in the audience tonight and this weekend. This is very much a show for the whole family.

The word “sweet” has featured in my review. If you are at all familiar with this ever popular production you already know why. For those who aren’t, Willy Wonka Jr. revolves around chocolate, candy – sweet treats of all kinds. The book from which this show springs was authored by the late, great novelist and short story writer Roald Dahl. A native of Wales, Dahl penned several popular fantasy works including the children’s story Charlie and the Chocolate Factory released in 1964. The book was adapted into two major motion pictures ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’ (1971) and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ (2005). Dahl, who died in 1990, also wrote a sequel entitled Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator (1972). The talented Dahl, a British flying ace and intelligence officer during World War II, had intended to write a third book in the series but never finished it. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was inspired by Dahl’s own childhood memories of two great chocolate manufacturing firms in Britain. Both were highly protective of their chocolate making secrets. That factor, combined with the gigantic machines which churned out so many wonderful confections, provided inspiration for the book. The Mudds’ Youth Theatre presentation sticks closely to the first film adaptation. The movie, which starred Gene Wilder, didn’t win Dahl’s approval. But it proved popular with many critics, including the late Roger Ebert.

Heir sought A look at the plot reveals that Willy Wonka is the owner of a magical and mysterious chocolate factory. Although he excels at manufacturing candy the audience learns he longs to retire. He hopes to find some “bright spark” to continue his tradition of producing outstanding sweets. In order to determine his heir Wonka, who in the local production is very well played by Lydia Charron, holds an international contest to find five lucky kids who he will lead on a tour of the gigantic candy factory and win a lifetime supply of chocolate. The ticket holders turn out to be over indulged children with high opinions of themselves. Well, four of them are! The exception is young Charlie Bucket (Hanna Pringle) who comes from a very poor family. His mother (Chloe Maxwell) is widowed and his Grandpa Joe (Molly Cooney) is bedridden, along with his other three grandparents. Charlie does his best to assist them. But the lure of the chocolate factory and the contest proves irresistible. As the story unfolds Charlie makes the final cut. But will he (well, she in this case) win Willy Wonka’s heart? You will have to buy a ticket to learn the answer! The Mudds’ audience is treated to some outstanding songs, entertaining dance numbers and the contest, as it unfolds, is absolutely hilarious at times. I was particularly impressed by the youngsters who took on the difficult roles of contest finalists.

Maddy Martin, as the spoiled English girl Veruca Salt, is absolutely outstanding. So too is Hadleigh Williamson as the gum chomping American ticket holder Violet Beauregarde. Hadleigh’s southern accent is priceless! Having been in Germany recently I enjoyed the work of Mason Frazer as the gluttonous ticket winner Augustus Gloop. His mother, ably played by Kaitlyn Rossignol Mines, is also very good. Once again their accents helped solidify the roles. Mudds’ Youth Theatre regular Justin Beiglee does a fine job as the television personality, Phineous Trout, who interviews the hopefuls. I thought the “television” scenes were a wonderful bit of improvisation. Other performances of particular note were turned in by Chloe Maxwell as Mrs. Bucket, and Gillian Whitlock as tour ticket winner Mickey Teavee. Another standout is regular youth performer Katie Irvine. Katie is delightful as the willowy, seductive Ms. Teavee who, like all of the “parents or grandparents”, chaperones her child on the factory tour. Abbie Giles is also strong in the role of the Candy Man. The (prop) candy cart she pushes is impressive – a credit to the production team. Oompa Loompas I can’t name everyone. But the work of the “Oompa Loompas”, Wonka’s orange skinned, green haired factory workers, must be noted. They are well played by Emma Andrigo, Mackenzie Bontes, Kathleen Fernandes, Evelyn

Jones, Jessa Jones, Kirra Martin, Maggie McIvor and Zachary Pringle. I love the hair Zachary! Singing is a key in this production and once again Mudds’ musical director Laurel Tye has worked her magic. Highlights on the lengthy song list include the opening Pure Imagination, the always popular Candy Man, Think Positive, Chew It and Oompa-Loompa (all four versions). Other songs of note are I Eat More, featuring the always ravenous Augustus Gloop and, of all things, the Burping Song! Everyone involved in this production deserves credit. The Mudds Youth Theatre gets better with each new staging! Following three performances last weekend Willy Wonka Jr. concludes with three more presentations this week in the Town Hall Auditorium. There are evening shows tonight (Thursday) and Friday. Curtain time for both is 7 p.m. The final performance is a matinee Saturday at 2 p.m. At press-time there were still plenty of seats available. All tickets are $10 apiece and can be purchased at the Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce Visitor Centre. The Chamber office is located in the former Carleton Place Train Station at 132 Coleman Street. Call 613-257-1976 for ticket information. The office is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on weekends from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For complete details about the Mississippi Mudds, including past, present and future performances, visit the website: www.mississippimudds.ca.

Canada’s Sochi Winter Olympics effort deserves praise Our continental rival, the United States, achieved the second highest medal count at these games with 28. Nine were gold, but 12 third place bronze raised the American total. There are always critics of course. Some pundits will say that by failing to top the 26 medals (including 14 gold) our country achieved at the Vancouver Winter Olympics four years ago, Sochi was a failure for Canada. I beg to differ. Canada’s Winter Olympics effort deserves high praise! Besides hockey and curling Canada was also a powerhouse in freestyle skiing in Russia. We captured nine medals including four gold, four silver and a bronze. Among the freestyle highlights was a pair of thrilling gold-silver finishes. Canada has clearly cemented its reputation as a force to be reckoned with at the Winter Olympics. The stated objective of Canadian officials was to finish atop the medal standings as well as surpassing our best ever showing in Vancouver. That’s the trouble with predictions. They can come back to haunt you. To me there are so many things that have to be taken into account when comparing the Vancouver games with the Sochi version. The most obvious is that in Vancouver we held many of the cards.

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

The competitions were staged on our snow, our ice. Canadians had far more control and therefore we were in an extremely positive position from the get go. IOC criticized Let’s face it the governing International Olympic Committee (IOC) is very open to criticism. Allegations of bribery, corruption, coercion, doping and preOlympic “deals� have dogged the IOC throughout its existence. The examples are endless involving both the summer and winter games. Selecting Sochi as the site of the 2014 Winter Games only heightened suspicions among the IOC’s critics that the “fix was in.� Despite Mikhail Gorbachev and “Perestroika�, the demolition of the Berlin Wall (in 1989) and all of that, the Russia of today isn’t exactly viewed as a “free and open society.� Certainly not in the west at least! The word “democracy� continues to ring hollow in that vast nation. As for the IOC why, for example, did the selection committee settle on balmy Sochi? They

could have picked Salzburg, Austria which had most of the necessary facilities already in place at the time the decision on a site was taken. The Sochi games turned out to be the most expensive Winter Olympics in history, a staggering $51 billion (US). Concern peaked in the days leading up to the games when stories emerged that judges from the US and Russia had conspired to ensure that marking for certain events would favour each other’s athletes. An odd partnership to be sure! But because judges’ marks are no longer posted there is no way to verify if that rampant rumour actually played out? Some Canadian luge athletes, along with Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, the Canadian skaters who went into these games as favourites to repeat as gold medalists in the ice dance competition, could no doubt add fuel to the tampering fire. The coach of the Canadian luge relay team is convinced the integrity of the track was changed. Canada finished fourth despite looking like a good bet

nations. That’s especially true of the always controversial sport of figure skating. The ongoing contention that politics and money trump sports and international goodwill, when it comes to the Olympic Games, has no doubt gained supporters in the wake of these games. But when it comes to the Winter Games at least, Canada has definitely risen to the challenge. Our athletes are better financed, better supported and clearly much better prepared than they have ever been. The number of medals they accumulate should not be the only measuring stick! If Olympic athletes were only competing against each other you could easily counter my argument. That is clearly not always the case.

for silver partway through the race. The angry coach says softer ice at the bottom slowed his team’s run just enough that they finished out of the medals. He suspects the track was heated. Meanwhile many others, including ice dance watchers from other nations, are suspicious of the marking which saw Canadians Virtue and Moir claim second place silver instead of the predicted gold. To their credit the young skaters refuse to blame judging. Their concern is coaching. In this case they shared a coach with the gold medal winning US pair of Meryl Davis and Charlie White. The Canadian couple, who are friends of the winners, said after the competition that coach Marina Zoueva focused most of her attention on the American pairs’ program which, ultimately, may have been to the Canadians detriment. I am only focusing on Canadian athletes. I could easily write a separate column about the various concerns and allegations voiced by athletes, coaches and officials from other participating

Lifestyle – No, Canada didn’t “Own the Podium� at the 22nd Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. But after repeating as both men’s and women’s hockey gold medalists and sweeping curling for the first time since the sport returned to the Olympics in 1998 it felt like we did. Arguably men’s hockey is the most coveted medal of all at the Winter Olympics. Canada won the final event of the Sochi games in style, shutting out Sweden 3-0. Our team allowed just three goals in six tournament games. I think the most exciting moment of the games was the Canadian women’s 3-2 overtime triumph over the Americans in the gold medal final, one week ago today. But then I would, wouldn’t I. I am a proud Canadian! Our athletes also proved that curling, which was invented in Scotland, has like hockey, become “Canada’s game.� Jennifer Jones’ ladies rink went undefeated, another first at the Winter Olympics. The men’s hockey result Sunday gave Canada third place in gold medal finishes with 10. Overall we were fourth with 25 medals including 10 silver and five bronze. Host Russia topped the table with 33 medals, including 13 gold while Norway edged Canada for third with 26 including 11 first place finishes.

consistent, dependable and non-conditional adult friendship. Over the years hundreds of children in Lanark County have benefited from these relationships and the adults involved have overwhelmingly expressed their enthusiasm for the friendship they have enjoyed. Currently just under 500 children are being served in Perth, Smiths Falls, Carleton Place, Almonte and Lanark. Children in the programs are matched with a caring adult volunteer, and they spend one to five hours per week together.

This is a program that focuses on friendship, and helps children who need a mentor to look up to. Often the children in the programs come from single parent homes, and are need of a role model and someone to talk to. Adult volunteers are fully screened and come from all walks of life, some are young adults, some are seniors – it’s the sort of volunteer program that can accommodate almost anyone with a few hours to spare. The agency is actively seeking new volunteers for their mentoring programs, and would welcome your calls or

Bell will acquire 31 licences for $566 million for 480M MHz-POP of nationwide 700 MHz spectrum, in line with financial community expectations, bringing Bell’s total holdings across various spectrum bands to more than 4,200M MHz-POP nationally.

nizers did a far better job of compensating for the springlike weather. Sochi versus Salzburg? I think we now have a clear answer to that question! As for the strength of the Canadian performance in Russia I will again stress that you have to look past the medals. The margin between winning and losing is so thin that many factors enter the mix. For example, Canadian speed skater Charles Hamelin won gold in the men’s 1,500 metre sprint. Sadly he suffered rare falls which eliminated him from both the 1,000 metre and the 500 metre (his best event) competitions. Consider how competitive

fastest, most advanced mobile technology, LTE, which is powering next-generation broadband services like mobile TV and an infinite range of new mobile apps and media for consumers and business users,� said Wade Oosterman, president of Bell Mobility. “Bell already offers LTE service to 82 per cent of the national population, and this new 700 MHz spectrum will help us take the network further: To towns, rural locations and remote communities across the country including Canada’s North.� Bell’s LTE build out plan will bring advanced mobile broadband services to more than 98 per cent of Canada’s population,

a national coverage footprint that will rival any in the world. The 2014 LTE build includes hundreds of Canadian communities – places like New Glasgow, Nova Scotia; Balmoral, New Brunswick; Chibougamau, QuÊbec; Dryden, Ontario; Fort Simpson, Northwest Territories; and Marsh Lake, Yukon – as well as enhancement of urban and suburban LTE coverage. Working in partnership with Northwestel to execute the Modernization Plan for the North, Bell is committed to delivering advanced LTE to Canada’s territories in 2014. For more information about Bell’s network leadership, please visit Bell.ca/Network.

Canadian athletes were overall. Our people were in the finals of so many events and with a little luck – another big factor during the Olympics – we might have claimed several more medals including the prized gold. Tight fourth place finishes in several competitions could just as easily have ended on the podium. One only has to look back as far as 1988 and the Calgary games to see how far our Winter Olympic program has progressed. In Calgary we claimed just five medals, including the silver claimed by Ottawa figure skater Elizabeth Manley. Canada has come a long way since Calgary. With an improved commitment in terms of federal government and cor-

porate funding our athletes are almost certain to be a major factor in future games. For our Winter Olympic athletes it is now “Pyeongchang or bust!� Well, don’t consider the last word in my previous sentence. I believe our next Winter Olympic performance in South Korea, four years from now, will be anything but a bust. Still, let’s go lighter on predictions. No point putting unnecessary pressure on our athletes, especially when you consider how many factors are involved in success or failure during the Olympics.

School board launches Courageous Canoe children’s book News – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) has launched its Courageous Canoe. Director David K. Thomas introduced the new children’s book on Feb. 24 during an official launch at Central Public School in Cornwall. The 33page picture book, created by UCDSB staff as a new tool in the board’s character education program, is designed to teach students the value of having courage, of working as a team and of finding individual motivation – their personal answers to the question of why they do what they do in life. “It teaches students to reflect on and answer their important personal question – what makes their personal journey significant for them and how, in working with others, it can lead to the greater good,” said Thomas. (See: http://whitewaterdave51.wordpress.com/). The story chronicles the adventures of a sad “Canoe” who leads a quest undertaken

with six friends – Abby, Richard, Greta, Edward, Raj and Nelly – to seek their “Why?” The adventure takes them over portages, through whitewater, into rainstorms, over waterfalls and through other challenges, allowing them to grow from a group interested in their own welfare to one that works as a team to find their “Why?” in life. They are guided on the journey by Canoe, who through courageous leadership manages all these different personalities and carries them to a successful conclusion of their journey. “Every great leader, if he is to succeed, must answer this important question of why they are doing what they do so they can remain motivated and focus their efforts towards success,” explained Thomas. The director had originally sought to purchase a children’s leadership book that could be used by the board to teach the values of the UCDSB character education program (See: http://www.ucdsb.on.ca/abou-

tus/Pages/credo.aspx) but couldn’t find a suitable off-theshelf version. He responded by having board staff create one, said Stephanie Reddoch, an intermediate teacher at Glengarry District High School who has co-written the book with UCDSB colleagues Patti Whyte, Patricia Sutherland, Terry Davies and illustrator Brenda Beaudette. “We were approached to create a children’s picture book but it’s really a lot more than that,” Reddoch explained. “It’s an allegory that hits on many different themes. It talks about our board’s different character traits but also leadership traits and it speaks to the value of diversity and inclusion.” In the book all the characters are different colours to represent all different races, beliefs and orientations. One character, Abby, is handicapped, wearing a brace on her leg. She worries that she could be left behind along the journey, but Canoe and the others act with charac-

ter and ensure she is included. The book also seeks to inspire leadership in staff and students by prompting everyone to reflect on their life’s purpose – personally and professionally. “It makes us all stop and reflect on what we are doing for the team...and to answer this reflective piece about how we are helping others,” said Reddoch. The book is accompanied by learning resources to aid staff and students in the reflec-

tion on leadership and character. The resources have been created under the guidance of Sutherland, learning commons manager or “chief librarian” with the board. These resources can be accessed through the board’s Virtual Learning Commons button on the UCDSB website (See: http://vlc.ucdsb. ca/content.php?pid=318051) or through a QR code on the book itself. While the book was created for UCDSB students, the messages are applicable and valu-

able to all, said Reddoch. “Self-reflection and the development of character should really be a lifelong process,” she explained. “It doesn’t matter what age you are. You need to reflect on who you are and the development of character so that hopefully you will become a better person.

How will Mississippi Mills grow over next 20 years? By TINEKE KUIPER

R0012553224_0227

Lifestyle – This is usually a question that town planners ponder while they develop well-integrated approaches for future growth, yet it should really be of interest to all of us. In 2005, leaders and volunteers in our community came together and created our first Community Official Plan (COP). The COP is a legal document containing the goals, objectives and policies that will guide the development, growth and change of the Town of Mississippi Mills over a 20year period. The vision adopted by town council at the time was and still is: “Mississippi Mills is an outstanding urban and rural community that is recognized for its natural and architectural beauty, high quality of life and respect for its heritage and environment. In its vision of the future, the community will be seen to promote and manage balanced economic growth.� Every five years the COP is reviewed and updated to take into account changes in the community and provincial policy requirements. The plan builds on the tradition of responsible stewardship of the resources and assets of the community.

Country estate lot subdivisions have separated two core natural areas, the Carp Hills Natural Environment Area and the South March Natural Environment Area causing an ecological separation of species such as blanding turtles. Such subdivisions are now banned in Ottawa and in many other municipalities.

into two pieces, or fragments, thereby fragmenting wildlife habitat and altering wildlife movement patterns. The fragmentation of a large forest and wetland habitat into smaller patches disrupts ecological processes and reduces the availability of habitat for some species. It is the greatest threat to native biodiversity. Some forest fragments are too small to maintain viable breeding populations of certain wildlife species, especially bird species that require forest interior habitat (i.e., habitat that is in the interior of a forest, a long way from the forest edge). Ecological changes resulting from fragmentation include the introduction of invasive, exotic (non-native) species and increased predation and parasitism. Creating small, isolated forest patches can also interfere with pollination, seed dispersal, wildlife migration and breeding. Ultimately, these changes can result in the local loss of species. While at first glance some may look nice, country estate lot subdivisions contribute strongly to fragmentation, much more so than normal severances. They directly impact biodiversity, through the direct removal of habitat, through the loss of interior habitat, through the introduction of non-native plants, and through predation/harassment by domestic animals, especially house cats. These Fragmentation Subdivisions often cut through natu- effects are well documented ral areas. This breaks the natural area in the scientific literature.

Mississippi Mills The Town of Almonte (population: 5,200) is located about 50 kilometres from the centre of Ottawa, and as such it is an exurban town rather, than a suburb of Ottawa. The profile of our town is gradually changing from that of a rural mill town in an agricultural setting in the late fifties, to a self sufficient, up to date and lively place with fine community spirit and cultural aspirations. It has gained a reputation as a good place to live and so, it also appeals as an exurban bedroom community for Ottawa and a retirement community. Both longtime residents and many newcomers alike share a strong sense of history, and optimism about the future of the community. Over the next 20 years, the municipality is expected to grow at a moderate annualized rate of two per cent. There are several villages, hamlets and settlement areas in the rural areas, and growth has varied. Between 19812001 annualized growth in Ramsay ward accelerated to 4.67 per cent (with most dwellings on private services) compared to 2.45 per cent in Pakenham ward and 1.03 per cent in Almonte ward. The haphazard growth during that period dramatically changed the rural character and physical landscape of Ramsay. There were increased concerns about the loss of natural areas and the health of the environment, loss of farmland and noticeable impacts on the local agricultural industry. Most noticeable was the visual impact of scattered rural residences and country estate lot subdivisions. There were also concerns about cost and economies of scale of providing services to a dispersed population and urban sprawl.

Country estates lot subdivisions are also detrimental to the sustainability of villages, as residents of such subdivisions do not appear to support village services and amenities, but tend to commute to suburban areas, strip malls, etc., to conduct their business and shopping. As a result, many municipalities, such as Ottawa and Kingston, have now banned country estate lot subdivisions.

Urban Sprawl In a recent article in The Millstone (February 3, 2014), Brian Barth paints a picture of how urban sprawl in the USA, in the form of rural subdivisions and strip malls, has consumed many small rural towns, which prior to this had an unequivocally rural mentality and identity, like Mississippi Mills. This is a picture that is also being played out in Canada. He suggested that Ottawa is certainly not growing at the rate of cities like Atlanta, but its sprawl will eventually consume the communities around it. If the footprint of the Greater Toronto Area were to be transplanted to Ottawa, half of Lanark County would already be in it, he said. Urban sprawl consumes agricultural lands, natural areas such as wetlands and forested lands, adding impervious cover in its place.

urban sprawl One of the alternative development strategies to counteract urban sprawl is the concept of Smart Growth, an idea developed in the early nineties, and a strategy adopted in our 2005 COP, and promoted by the province. Smart Growth is about reducing sprawl, it’s about growth management, it’s about creating livable communities, it’s about economic growth, it’s about protecting the environment, it’s about efficient government – it’s about all of these things! Communities across the country are using creative strategies to develop in ways that preserve natural lands and critical environmental areas, protect water and air quality, and reuse already-developed land. They conserve resources by reinvesting in existing infrastructure and reclaiming historic buildings. By designing neighborhoods that have shops, offices, schools, churches, parks, and other amenities near homes, communities are giving their residents and visitors the option of walking, bicycling, taking public transportation, or driving as they go about their business. Through smart growth approaches that enhance neighborhoods and involve local residents in development decisions, these communities are creating vibrant places to live, work, and play. The high quality of life in these communities makes them economically competitive, creates business opportunities, and improves

Smart growth principles Based on the experience of communities that have used smart growth approaches to create and maintain great neighborhoods, the Smart Growth Network developed a set of ten basic principles: • Mix land uses • Take advantage of compact building design • Create a range of housing opportunities and choices • Create walkable neighborhoods • Foster distinctive, attractive communities with a strong sense of place • Preserve open space, farmland, natural beauty, and critical environmental areas • Strengthen and direct development towards existing communities • Provide a variety of transportation choices • Make development decisions predictable, fair, and cost effective • Encourage community and stakeholder collaboration in development decisions Preserve important natural heritage areas One of the principles of smart growth is to ensure that important natural areas are protected from development, so that critical habitat is preserved, and nature is able to run its course, providing fresh air and clean water.

izing the most important areas and in developing a system of interconnected core natural areas that will greatly benefit the community. Based on mapped data, provided by OMNR, on provincially significant wetlands, significant woodlands, areas of natural and scientific interest, wildlife and other features, the first phase has been completed and several important natural heritage core areas, such as the Wolf Grove and Pakenham wetland complexes, the Appleton wetlands, and the Burnt Lands Alvar, can now be designated. This information is important, as it allows for planning decisions on the appropriate location of development, as well as set an appropriate level of protection for individual core areas. The next phase of this project will be completed within the next few years. Difficult decisions ahead for council The current COP is not saying no to development, but rather provides direction on how to develop in a way residents have said they hope to see their community progress. Council is grappling with the question of how much development is appropriate and how we should go about doing it without losing the small town and rural character and natural heritage areas that we all highly prize and that our COP tries to help maintain. Thus, councillors face some tough decisions. Your input is important at this time. A public meeting is being planned. Stay tuned.

Community – Cornerstone Landing, a local non-profit organization, hosted their annual general meeting (AGM) on Tuesday, Feb. 18 in Perth. The charity has been working for several years to help youth who are on the verge of homelessness so that they can maintain stable housing and remain in school. On the agenda for the AGM was the release of a report they have titled Youth Homelessness in Perth. In 2013, the group conducted a survey of 392 students in Perth to determine the extent of youth homelessness. Their intention was to view the issue through the eyes of young people and get information on the state of youth homelessness in our community. The research provided evidence that the work of Cornerstone Landing is indeed worthwhile and much needed by our youth The survey report provided concerning results. Of the students surveyed, 22 per cent had left home one or more time with some leaving more than ten times. This is consistent with statistics presented by research conducted by others in Canada. Youth homelessness in rural areas is not always obvious because these young people do not hang out on our street corners because of the stigma of being seen by others who know them, and so it is a hidden problem. With no shelters, no public transportation and few resources, our at-risk youth often leave home and go to urban centres where find themselves in dangerous situations.

Remembering a dear friend

completed as Hiatt did Have A Little Faith in Me, our favourite, as his encore. As we crawled out slowly from the bowels of the auditorium, I read nothing but smiles of satisfaction on the faces of others who’d been lucky enough to be there. The quality of the evening was also realized by the larger than usual number of local musicians attending, also nodding in satisfaction at what they gratefully witnessed. Sweet. We lost one of the true visionaries, a man who tirelessly worked to put his desire to create a better, more equal and accepting world into practice through his actions of song or organization, exemplifying the title ‘troubadour’ in it’s truest sense. At 94, Pete Seeger was chopping wood ten days before he died. He was one of the main players who helped revive the folk music scene and via his music, there’s rarely a campfire enjoyed where one of his songs isn’t sung. We lost a great one. It’s up to us all now to carry his work forward as “We Shall Overcome”. Upcoming events Here’s a treat for you. A very special concert is coming up Sunday, March 2 at 3 p.m. in the back room of the Perth Restaurant. Remember last year’s CBC radio’s Searchlight competition, where they sought the up and coming musicians from across Canada? If you remember Perth’s own Henry Norwood, then 14 years of age, made it to the nation wide final four with his traditional country style. Well, Henry is thrilled to be playing a set and then welcoming the winners of that competition, Sherman Downey & The Ambiguous Case (from Newfoundland) who will also perform their own unique style which was so popular at Stewart Park Festival a couple of years ago. Tickets are available at the restaurant or by calling Sue at 613-267-7902.

out a small keyboard to the front of the stage. Hiatt sat on a stool and quietly played what has become one of my favourite songs, Have a Little Faith In Me, his 1987 hit that’s since been covered by everyone, it seems including Joe Cocker, Delbert McClinton, Bill Frisell and Bon Jovi. Back to present...those voices, who’d called my name at the NAC from further back were some of the “regulars” who’d been in my van that night and, as we spoke later, we’d all had our minds on our late buddy Geoff, remembering him as having been our musical mentor 20 years earlier. Though we’d lost Geoff in 2003, we still felt him with us as he’d brought us not only Lyle and John but Guy Clark, Joe Ely, Willie P., Lynn Miles, Prairie Oyster to name just a few. We continue to thank you, Geoff! We were not disappointed. Having seen many times previously, both Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt solo and with multi-intrumental back up bands, it was somehow fitting to see just the two of them sitting side by side, each with a couple of acoustic guitars by their sides. The relaxed camaraderie between these two was immediately evident and seemed to spread throughout the hall. At ease, they each took turns playing tunes from their respective repertoires, even satisfying some called out requests. Music was the mainstay but as time went on, their quipping back and forth grew while taking the time to tune. Having hosted in our living room, house concerts for so many years, I had to keep reminding myself we weren’t there, the intimacy and laidback feel permeated us all, even in such a large venue. The audience hung on every word, whether it was wailed or whispered. You knew it was an already appreciative audience when a standing ovation arrived before a note was played. Two and a half hours flew by without an intermission. Lyle and John shared stories of musicians they’d met through their storied pasts; Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee; their, what appeared to be off the cuff remarks recognizing the emotions realized through one another’s song stories, many fitting their devised, on stage categories: ‘spooky’ or ‘creepy’. I felt my reconnection to my buddy Geoff’s memory

OSHC-2014-0032

Lifestyle – As I sat with my buddies, thankful for our good seats, relaxed, in anticipation of the start of the Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt concert at the NAC, following some vino and a tasty venison stew, interspersed with jovial dialogue between other concert attendee dear friends, I couldn’t get the memory of a now ten-year deceased acquaintance from my mind. I’d been thinking of him all day because he was the whole reason I was sitting there now. My memory had been further colourized as we strolled minutes earlier across the row to our seats and I immediately recognized the voice from a few rows back calling my name. Looking back, I confirmed my successful voice recognition skills visually; one of “the regulars” and characters of an old story repeatedly playing in my head sat there with several others waving. I was taken back to 1993 or ’94... Back then, I’d have lunch daily at the Maple Drop Bakery in Perth, (where The Masonry Restaurant and Market is now), sitting at our “regular table” with “the regulars”. nMovies, books and local goings on would be discussed routinely but music always brought the most animated debates. In the late ‘80’s and early ‘90s, I will admit now that I was a music snob in that, though I loved a wide variety of music, any music deemed ‘country’ was not for my picky ears. As I’ve written before, I did love The Band with their country blends back in the 1970s but they were an exception to my then discerningly, strict tastes. That’s where my late buddy, Geoff Lemoyre, comes in. He was a woodwork craftsman I’d met at the Maple Drop who’d became one of us “regulars”. He too, loved a diverse mix of music, including country and it was with him I’d have my most caustic verbal jousts. Geoff was a shy, handsome, sincere man who had been trying to interest me in John Hiatt for quite a while. I’d written him off as “too country”. One day Geoff stepped his argument up a notch by running a proposition by me. Since I had a large passenger van he proposed, if I drove and was their designated driver, he’d pay for my meal and ticket into a John Hiatt show at Centrepointe to prove Hiatt’s quality. I agreed and so, thanks to Geoff, my love for John Hiatt’s music was secured by the third song. He was touring in support of probably his most rocking album, Perfectly Good Guitar, released in 1993 and, whew, it did rock. Partway through the show though, the entire band left the stage and a roadie brought

Kits range in price from $200 to $350 depending on application and those that use cleanable reusable air filters can provide additional savings by reducing the need to purchase new air filters. In a move to capture more auto service repair and maintenance business, Ford announced recently a major upgrade in their parts and accessories warranties. Now these items will be warranted for 24 months from time of purchase or installation (including parts and labour) with most repairs completed at any Ford or Ford Lincoln dealership, and up to $150 labour coverage for fleets and installers completing repairs. This labour coverage for parts installed at other-than-Ford dealer service departments is an industry first.

Lifestyle – Almost every driver today is looking for some way to improve fuel mileage and a great many of them are looking to cold-air intake systems, especially those driving V8 powered trucks. The only problem is most consumers that install a cold-air system find their fuel mileage actually worsens instead of improving. A cold air intake is made up of ductwork and brackets and an air filter which differs considerably from the original automaker’s set-up. The tube that carries the air to the throttle body is usually shorter and larger in diameter. The air filter mounting bracket is often located to areas of the engine bay as far away from heat sources as possible. The air filters on these kits are designed to move more air at a faster rate. This allows greater volumes of cooler and denser air to get into the engine’s intake. When a gasoline engine can ingest cooler and denser air, it burns the fuel more completely. Carmakers use traditional systems instead of cold-air intakes primarily to reduce noise. Cold-air systems with their open air filters are somewhat noisier than OEM systems. So in theory a more efficient fuel burn should mean better fuel mileage, right? Well, it’s not quite that simple. As well as boosting engine efficiency, cold-air intakes help to boost horsepower. The increase usually isn’t much, but it is noticeable (usually less than five per cent). But when this modest jump in power is combined with the turbine-type noise of the open air filter, they usually create a communication line from the driver’s ear to his or her right foot with instructions to ‘opener-up’ and let those ponies loose and this is where fuel-mileage usually takes a quiet place in the back seat. If drivers installing these systems would only take some time to relearn their driving style, they might see some improved mileage. Good quality cold-air intakes sel-

REGIONAL NEWS

Connected to your community

Windsor-built 1949 Plymouth found in Manitoba tomb! Lifestyle – Robert Whitmore of Calgary, Alberta, calls it “The Discovery of an Entombed Car.” Around 2001 a fellow hobbyist told him of an old car in Manitoba that was like new. In May of 2002, during a visit to Manitoba, Robert visited the town of Rivers where the car was located. The widow of the owner said he could look at the car. Upon going to the garage, he looked for a door or window. There were none. It was totally enclosed. A neighbour loaned him a screwdriver and he removed one section of plywood wall, then peered into the dark unlighted interior and could see a car inside. “But what kind of car?” wondered Robert. The neighbour brought a flashlight and Robert was looking at a 1949 Plymouth coupe. Getting the driver’s door open revealed the extraordinary condition of the interior and the very low mileage of approximately 16,000 miles. Mrs. G. (the widow) told me that the car had been purchased brand new by her late father-in-law who had picked it up at the factory in Ontario. Her husband had inherited it but it was now owned by their son in Calgary. On my return to Calgary, I met the son and bought the car.” During June of 2002, Robert returned to the car, removed more of the enclosing wood panels, jacked it up off blocks, lowered it to the ground undamaged, and then dragged it out into the light. A drain of the gas tank, and the drip of treacle-like material soon dispelled any notion of soon

starting it there. “I arranged for transport to my home in Calgary where the fuel system was thoroughly cleaned and re-built as necessary. A change of all fluids and a new battery with prior rotating of the engine parts soon had it running very well. A thorough cleaning and polishing had it looking like new. Inside the car was found the original ‘Gate Release Ticket’ from Chrysler for when the original owner had picked it up in Windsor on September 15, 1949. “A friend from a local car club persuaded me to sell it. As usual, I had another project in store and I let it go. It has since been resold to another local man but is still seen at events around here in Calgary. It was a thrill and adventure to discover and in a way resurrect such a very nice car and gratifying to now see it back on the road and looking so great. So, everyone, there still are some good ones to discover and bring home from out there. Keep up the search.” I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, Liberated 1949 Plymouth coupe at picnic in Calgary, August 2013. 1925 to 1965.”

Teens are teens wherever you go By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News - Smiths Falls and District Centre for Youth (SFDCY) is making overtures to youth centres up north to connect teenagers. “We were looking at different youth programs we might be able to partner on, and hoping to branch out, not just working with the Lanark coalition but also with centres in the North West Territories,� said Adam Gariepy, executive director SFDCY, who spearheaded the initiative. The first executive director from the south to make the trip and the effort Gariepy headed out on Jan. 30 and returned Feb. 17. In those 19 days he connected with five youth centres and three friendship centre that are members of Youth Centres Canada, the umbrella organizations that established a code of standards of youth programs and youth centres across the nation. “I got to visit the youth centres in Hay River, Fort Providence, Fort Simpson, Behcheko – RaeEdzo, Nuvik, Yellow Knife and Tuktoyaktuk,� said Gariepy. The centres are already connected via email right now, specifically with Hay River and Fort Providence. The Hay River centre is ready to start working on joint projects now. “We’re looking at current issues in our own centre and ones that are coming between north and south,� said Alice Coates, youth worker at Hay River Community Youth Centre. “In particular we’re looking at the Northern Territories Boats project which is something YCC is very supportive of in building relations between northern communities and if we secure funding for it we’d like to expand it and invite youth from the south.� In the meantime there’s a lot of interest in setting up Skype time to video chat about future plans and to meet youth via Skype. “We’re even looking at pen-palling – old school, partly to work on literacy but also who doesn’t like to receive old fashioned mail!� said Gariepy. The upshot of the trip was that Gariepy and

his new contacts in the north are a little closer to developing what they hope will turn into a youth centre exchange program. “The idea is to bridge the cultural diversity gap and give youth opportunities to see their country, make friends and share resources,� said Gariepy. It’s an idea that has been bandied about since the inception of the northern youth centres, according to Les Voakes, executive director of YCC. “At the first meetings of all the centres in the North West Territories that was one of the things they wanted to do – to twin with youth centres in the south,� said Voakes. “It was why they joined YCC, because they wanted to have more contact with youth centres in the south but really it takes one person to get up and get on a plane to make it happen.� That person was Gariepy, and he says the trip was quite the eye-opener in many ways. The way of life, he said is very different, but ultimately he was blown away by the similarities as well. “It’s a slower pace up there and it seemed calmer, I forgot I was in Canada in some ways,� said Gariepy. “But kids are kids wherever they are, they all want the same experiences, the same opportunities, their day-to-day activities were different but the conversations they were having were identical.� The entire trip came about when Gariepy found out that one of the YCC staff was headed up north to deliver one of the organization’s programs. Michael Dupuis, YCC’s IT director was headed up north to deliver the digital version of YCC’s MAP project to youth centres in the North West Territories. “When I found out Michael was going, I contacted YCC to see if I could tag along to connect with the northern youth centres,� said Gariepy. While Gariepy made the trip on his own dime, he was able to realize some savings by sharing accommodation and travel with Dupuis. “It was a phenomenal trip, and the hospitality was unbelievable,� said Gariepy, “They couldn’t do enough to make us feel welcome.�

If you are looking for an evening full of laughter, visit the Toledo Legion on March 8 for JimmyG Hypnotic Comedy Show. It starts at 8 p.m.

Expect the unexpected at hypnotic comedy fundraiser at Toledo Legion By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Arts - A comedy hypnotist show sounds like a lot of fun and it is coming to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 475 in Toledo. The JimmyG Hypnotic Comedy Show will be at the Legion hall on Saturday, March 8 at 8 p.m. “We’re having this fundraiser, because we need to insulate the attic at the Legion hall. It’ll help us save on heat and air conditioning costs,� said Vicki Downey, fundraising officer with the Legion. The goal is to raise at least $1,000 and to do that they need to sell at least 200 tickets to the show at $20 a ticket in advance or $25 at the door. “We have to sell 80 tickets just to break even, but the Legion seats 400 so if we sell more than 200 that would be great,� said Downey. Billed as clean, safe and hilariously funny the show depends on audience participation. “The first thing about a hypnosis show is that it’s a volunteer participation show, nobody is forced to be in the show and nobody is ever embarrassed on stage or put into an embarrassing situation, but you can expect the unexpected – I will put volunteers in certain situations and the

show depends on their personalities,� said Jimmy Graham in an interview. A 30-year veteran entertainer and author, Graham began his career as a musician playing with various bands but discovered hypnosis about 25 years ago. He received training from Master Hypnotist Attila J. Khun and is certified by the Stage Hypnosis Center in Las Vegas. He’s also certified by the Alberta Hypnosis Institute and The Hypnosis Motivation Institute and is a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists. “It’s a real joy to go out and provide people with a great escape and to showcase the power of the human mind – which is really the mission that I’m on,� said Graham. The show itself is hard to describe because no two shows are ever the same. “It one of the best examples of a real reality show with improvised comedy as the catalyst for the whole thing,� said Graham. This will be the second time the Toledo Legion has booked JimmyG for a fundraiser. “He came three years ago and it was gutwrenchingly funny,� said Downey. Tickets for the show are on sale now at Wrightway Services in Smiths Falls or at Kitley Grocery and Service Centre in Toledo, or by calling 613-275-7228.

Poring over a map that shows all the new assets the town has managed to garner over the past six years through careful management and following a community driven strategic plan, Mayor Dennis Staples is satisfied with the plan’s success.

Strategic plan update suggests town has made great strides hsorour@perfprint.ca

News - There were four residents, eight members of town council and staff, and two media representatives on hand to hear the final update of the Town of Smiths Falls Strategic Plan at the Smiths Falls and District Memorial Community Centre. “This is a wrap-up of the plan we adopted in 2008, which had a five-year horizon but as a result of staffing changes, was bumped a year,” said Mayor Dennis Staples. The plan set out the town’s core values and goals and was adopted following a one-year consulting process. “We consulted with police, youth groups, community groups, ministerial organizations, health organizations and residents,” said Staples. The result was a document designed to give council guidance on what residents and stakeholders wanted achieved in the community. The plan dealt with seven core values, which can be viewed online. “I thought it was a great presentation. I’m disappointed that people didn’t come to see all the great things the town has accomplished and that they don’t express their concerns, opinions and ideas,” said Karen Koluk, one of the four residents in attendance. The upshot of the update is that the town has accomplished the majority of its goals with the addition of the Station Theatre, a new high school, a new hospital, the new arena, a state-of-theart water treatment plant and attracted new developments and businesses to the town. “Not only did we accomplish all this without raising taxes until this year, we dealt with all the challenges that were put before us - losing six employers - I think we’ve done a pretty good job of it,” said Staples. There is no mandated requirement for

municipalities to have strategic plans, it just makes good sense to set one up, according to Staples. “I think the plan was very valuable, it gives perspective to the provincial and the federal governments that this is what this town is planning as it moves forward,” said Ron Stronski. According to Staples he even presented copies of the town’s plan to the incumbent MP and MPP of the time, and they were surprised to receive them. Given the need for a new high school and a new hospital at that time, Staples felt it made sense. “On this council we’ve always seen our role as meeting the broad needs of the community so we were engaged in the new high school and the new hospital even if those decisions were made at the school board or the provincial level,” said Staples. There are still some areas that are ongoing, like physician recruitment, debt repayments and attracting more employers to the town, but a lot has been accomplished in six years. “We have 867 housing units planned for this town, that’s the largest number of housing projects I’ve ever seen in Smiths Falls,” said Staples. A brand new business, Tweed has taken over the former Hershey plant, and while it’s not a huge employer yet it is an anchor that could be a first step to attracting more employers. “We wanted to have tangible goals, at the same time a strategic plan can’t be rigid or cut in stone because things change, but without a plan everyone would have their own idea of what needs to be done,” Staples said. “With this document we had guidance.” This update brings the life of this particular strategic plan to an end and it will be up to the present or the next council to create a new vision. “I hope whomever the new mayor is going to be that they will continue this planning process,” said Stronski.

GARBAGE AND RECYCLING Please do not place your garbage and recycling on the sidewalk if it is snowing. The snow ploughs find it very difficult to manoeuvre and plough properly.

Please place a tag on any additional bags more than approved 2 bags of garbage. If you have a large item, even if you have only one bag of garbage, you are required to tag it with 2 tags. Please keep our streets clean by abiding by waste by-law. We appreciate your cooperation and efforts. We will continue to address issues as they arise.

Arena users up in arms over proposal for increased fees hsorour@perfprint.ca

News - A special committee of the whole meeting preceded the regular committee of the whole meeting on Feb 24, at Smiths Falls town hall. The regular committee of the whole meeting that followed began with some very passionate presentations by three arena users. Jennifer Pevere, president of the Rideau Lakes Figure Skating Club made an impassioned plea to council with regard to the proposed user fees for the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre. “Our members have categorically said they cannot pay these fees and will simply go to clubs that do not have these user fees,â€? said Pevere. “The Rideau Lakes Skate Club will have no choice but to close our doors‌ if we lose anymore members we will close.â€? As Pevere pointed out the demise of the Rideau Lakes Figure Skating Club will cost the memorial centre $40,000 in annual ice usage fees. The second delegation was a presentation from Nancy Greene, representing the Smiths Falls Minor Hockey Association. “We are among the biggest users of the facility but only 27 per cent of our members live in Smiths Falls and 63 per cent of users are out-of-town users, and though we agree with having some type of user fee we see some flaws in this proposal,â€? said Greene. The third presentation was by Richard Knott, representing the Smiths Falls Girls Hockey Association. “I appreciate your efforts to cut costs and increase revenue but this is devastating news to Smiths Falls girls hockey,â€? said Knott. Girls hockey has been operating in Smiths Falls for 24 years and has fielded a maximum of 11 teams down to 10 teams this year, that represents 129 girls in hockey, explained Knott. The problem is that 28 of the hockey players come from the ‘other’ category of users who would be liable for the $387 surcharge. “One of the teams we’ve been successful with is the Midget AA team, and my daughter is the only girl from Smiths Falls playing on it,â€? said Knott. The rest of her team is from Kanata, Stittsville and Kemptville. As he pointed out parents with hockey players already pay registration fees, team fees and have equipment costs. “That $300-plus has caused ripples in our organization,â€? said Knott. “If we lose three players we lose our peewee team. We have two bantam teams but if we lose two players we lose one team and have to turn some players away.â€? As Knott explained each team currently spends $6,000 in ice time at the arena, 10 teams mean $60,000 in revenue to the town. “At the tournament last weekend we had 56 teams and 101 games were played, this is probably the last year we’re going to have this tournament,â€? said Knott. Following the delegations Steve Fournier, acting CAO gave a report on the recreational cost sharing agreement and the news is not all good. Drummond North Elmsley is prepared to move forward with the agreement, Montague has issued an agreement in principal and Rideau Lakes has been on board since 2012; however Elizabethtown-Kitley has opted to subsidize any of their youth who are interested in using the Smiths Falls facilities and Merrickville-Wolford has rejected the proposal outright. “The Town of Smiths Falls has had recreational agreements with those five townships since 1993,â€? said Mayor Dennis Staples. “We were hoping to have extended those with all five partners just for the operation of the arena and youth arena and allocating those costs in an equitable manner.â€? According to Fournier the operating deficit at the arena is $400,000 and that was the number used to arrive at the surcharge. “We will have to step back and take another look based on what we heard today,â€? said Fournier. “I certainly hear the concerns tonight, the risk of losing entire groups like Rideau Lakes Figure Skating Club or girls hockey and downward spiral from there, I don’t know what the solution is, but

MCSS@Ontario.ca or RRC.MCSS@Ontario.ca, respectively.

I’d like council to take a step back and think about this. We either have too much cost or two few users,� said Coun. Shawn Pankow. Community grants In an effort to streamline the process of granting town funds to various community groups each councillor was asked to record their choice of group and funding amount, and hand in their choices to staff who then collated the results so that groups with the largest number of votes were automatically received funding and contested amounts were simply averaged out. In the end the grants awarded were: Healthy Living Festival $5,000; The Horticultural Society $800; Rolling Thunder $1,000; Municipal Heritage Committee $5,000; Youth Centre $10,000; Arts and Culture $2,400; Drug Strategy $2,000; Gordon Pipe Band $1,000; Smiths Falls Home Small business Show and Rural Roots Festival $2,000; The Rideau provides jobs, Ferry Dock $2,500; HUB $20,000; REAL $9,000; tax revenues Rideau Heritage Route $6,000; Railway Museum $12,000; Interval House $1,000 and Together and many other Smiths Falls $5,000, bringing the total to $84,800. contributions “Let’s put our money where our mouth is and I suggest we shave $60 off ever councillor’s pay to our region. cheque to cover the $4,800 we’ve overspent,� said Coun. Ken Graham. Council agreed to the cut from their stipends. A lively discussion ensued over how the monies were allocated with particular emphasis around the grant to the HUB and to the Railway Museum. Councillor Chris Cummings asked each councillor whether they would consider giving the HUB the free water they had asked for if the money wasn’t available. “I can’t support free water to the HUB when we’re raising water rates by 13 per cent for our residents,� said Coun. Jay Brennan. The majority of councillors and the mayor supported Brennan. The Railway Museum was the only other contentious issue with one councilor allocating $4,000 to the museum and one allocating $23,000. “I have a problem with the Railway Museum’s request, I don’t think we should be supporting program expansion when times are tight,� said Graham. “The $12,000 investment will, I believe, help them get their Caboose program running and it’s expected to generate $20,000 year after year in revenue to the museum, so I think that’s a worthwhile investment,� said Coun. Chris Cummings. A series of staff reports followed these discussions including a winter parking restrictions report, a waste management report, an encroachment agreement report and the Fire monthly report all of which are available at http://www.smithsfalls. ca/council-minutes-and-agenda.cfm - a number of other reports were deferred to the next meeting.

Rideau Regional Centre closed in 2009 and Southwestern Regional Centre closed in 2008. The closures followed a government decision to close institutions for adults with developmental disabilities and provide residents with community living opportunities with appropriate supports and services. Approximately 18,000 people with a developmental disability are receiving residential supports in Ontario communities, with thousands more receiving other supports, services and funding that help them live, work and participate in community life.

The special meeting primarily consisted of an Asset Management Plan update by Jim Guest of Greer Galloway, engineers, planners and consultants out of Kingston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the end of this process right now, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping for input from council because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to finalize the asset management report,â&#x20AC;? said Guest. Guest had previously handed out to members of council a sample of a 20-year asset plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of work ahead of this municipality,â&#x20AC;? said Guest. The final report will include a financial strategy with several options for the municipality to consider with regard to finding the funding it will need to affect the repairs and maintenance of town infrastructure. Among the suggestions in the financial plan, is instating development fees, and in some instances user fees or accessing funding from nontraditional sources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a living document that will be updated yearly,â&#x20AC;? said Guest, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Already it needs to be updated with 2013 information because we were working with 2011 and 2012 information.â&#x20AC;? According to Guest the report is the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan and will guide all future plans in every department.

Council recognizes many community contributions with appreciation awards By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News - A headline in last week’s Record News may have confused some who read about students seeking summer employment and becoming their own boss. If more information is needed about this event, please contact Cindy James

at the Small Business Advisory Centre (Smiths Falls and Lanark) at (613) 283-7002 ext. 108; email, cjames@ smallbizcentre.ca or online at www. smallbizcentre.ca. The Record News apologizes for the confusion.

Mayor Dennis Staples presents an appreciation award to Dr. Peter Yunker after his retirement.

R0012567913_0227

News - The public meeting for the Official Plan review was well attended though a bit confusing. Although advertised as a public meeting it had the look and procedure of a staff report at a special committee of the whole meeting at Smiths Falls town hall on Tuesday, Feb. 18. OP Review In her introduction Nicole McKernan, town planner, explained what the OP review meant to the community. “The official plan review establishes the policies for how land should and will be used in a municipality: where new houses will be, where industrial and commercial sectors will be located. It determines density, infill and affordability and determines when and in what order parts of the community will grow,” she said. McKernan then turned over the presentation to Marc Rivet, senior planner with J. R. Richards the company that has been helping the town prepare the OP review. Rivet delved a little deeper into how he and J.R. Richards were approaching the Smiths Falls scenario. “The OP must comply with the Provincial Planning Act, and be consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement. We went through a lengthy Lands Needs background study and prepared an issues identification report,” he told council. “Different policies will be proposed through this report to ensure affordability, design, downtown revitalization and how these policies get built into the OP.” The entire presentation can be viewed on line at http:// www.smithsfalls.ca/officialplanreview.cfm Appreciation Awards At the start of the regular council meeting that followed, three members of the community were recognized for their contributions. The first to be called was Agnes McVeety, the host committee chair for the Travelers Tankard. “We want to extend our appreciation to Agnes McVeety for hosting a successful event,” said Mayor Dennis Staples. As she accepted the award from the town, McVeety was quick to point to all the volunteers, service clubs and town staff who helped her along the way. “It was a fantastic journey, my first time ever organizing an event of that size, and I want to let council know that you have some very talented people working for the town,” she said. A certificate of appreciation was also awarded to the Smiths Falls Curling and Squash Club received by Paul Howard, host committee co-chair on behalf of Richard Burroughs, president of the club. “It was a wonderful privilege to be part of that event,” said Howard. A third certificate of appreciation was awarded to Dr. Peter Yunker following his retirement announcement. “We want to congratulate you on your retirement and thank you for what you have done for this community,” said Staples. Councillor reports Coun. Ken Graham kicked off the councillor reports with a report from the water association, ambulance services and Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL). “Our municipal drinking water license is coming up for renewal, and we must ensure a current copy of our financial plan has been submitted,” said Graham. “Return transfers to Rosedale are now permitted without approvals,” Graham told council. “The fire department will not be contacted for lift assist calls anymore and a stroke protocol is in effect to speed service through better communication protocols.” Communications and boundaries are being streamlined and upgraded to improve emergency service, according to Graham. REAL Graham pointed out that REAL (Rideau Environmental Action League) is reminding the public that 75 and 100 watt incandescent light bulbs are now banned and the 50 and 60 watt light bulbs will be banned by the end of the year. “REAL needs volunteers, they are arranging a public meeting on why we should care about the Energy East Pipeline. This is an information session and worth attending,” said Graham. Coun. Chris Cummings reported on the Police Services Board meeting he had attended. “At the Feb. 13 police services board meeting Karen Hallinan was confirmed as chair and Tom Ariss as vice chair,” he told council. Cummings expressed concern that he has had a number of people stop him or contact him asking why the new police

There is no cruiser purchase this year and no new capital expenditures,” he said. Council then passed a series of bylaws as the meeting continued. The first bylaw to pass was a comprehensive zoning amendment on Heritage Commons to allow the construction of a six-storey condominium. This amendment will affect density and could have a detrimental impact on traffic, which is why the town continues to enforce a holding on the property pending a traffic impact study the cost of which will be borne by the developer, according to Coun. Jay Brennan. THE EMC - SF4 - Thursday, February 27, 2014

Play duplicate bridge, have some fun; it’s a friendly atmosphere Community - Most people who play bridge begin by playing kitchen bridge with family members and friends. Some will continue to play social bridge where they will play with their partner against other teams. They may compete in tournaments held by different organizations in Smiths Falls and Perth to raise funds like the Perth Marathon held each year to raise funds for the Great War Memorial Hospital. Other service clubs and church groups will use bridge to raise funds for their projects. A good place to play social bridge is at McMartin House in Perth each Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. The cost is only $2 and refreshments are served free. Recently, the organizers, Joy Price and Kveta Privora, of the Friday afternoon

bridge club at McMartin House are giving bridge lessons for those social bridge players who want to improve their skills. Those lessons take place on Thursday at 1 p.m. at McMartin House. Some social bridge players have been reluctant to play duplicate bridge because some duplicate players gave their clubs a bad reputation by being too competitive and sometimes rude to their partner and opposing team members. As a relatively new duplicate bridge player I found this not to be true because both the Smiths Falls and Perth Duplicate Bridge clubs follow a zero tolerance policy and emphasize their motto which is to play nice and have fun. Both clubs have instituted a yellow card that can be used to call the director if

someone is not following the club’s guidelines. The director is called to deal with any complaints in a professional manner. The offending member(s) will receive a reprimand and/or be penalized. Duplicate bridge is a form of the game whereby the conditions of play are duplicated exactly at each table; the same cards in each hand, the same dealer and the same vulnerability. The match-point score does not depend on the luck of the deal. Match points are derived by comparing the scores made by the players who held the identical cards under the identical conditions If you decide to play duplicate bridge you will need a partner. If you do not have one you can call the partnership chairperson for each club. For the PDBC call 613-267-5305 and for the SFDBC call

613-283-1957. The PDBC meets each Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Perth Civitan Club. The SFDBC meets each Monday at 7 p.m. and on Tuesday at 1 p.m. in the Legion Hall. Coffee, tea and snacks are provided free. Most duplicate bridge players join the ACBL (American Contract Bridge League) – a not-for-profit organization. It is the primary and largest official sanctioning body for competitive and duplicate bridge in North America. Each year more than three million tables of bridge are played under ACBL auspices at clubs and tournaments in North America, overseas, online and even on cruise ships. There are many benefits to joining the ACBL once you become an active duplicate bridge player especially if you want

to improve and learn from other master duplicate bridge players. If you desire to earn master points you need to play in tournaments at different clubs in our area and other clubs around the world. Finally, I want to emphasize again zero tolerance is a policy recommended by the ACBL for all duplicate players. The SFDBC and the PDBC strive to promote a friendly atmosphere at the table while eliminating unacceptable behaviour including rudeness, intimidation, gloating, profanity and/or any other variety of offences. Automatic penalties are part of the program. If you feel an infraction of zero tolerance has occurred at your table please call the director. Come play duplicate bridge. Be nice, and have some fun.

Smiths Falls first council candidate, Tony Humphrey, tosses hat in the ring By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News - The first nomination papers have finally been submitted in Smiths Falls. Tony Humphrey is the first candidate to declare himself for council at the 2014 Smiths Falls municipal election. “To some extent I believe I can make a difference,” Humphrey said. Quietly passionate about the town, Humphrey believes a different approach to the town’s finances and services could work wonders. “We need to look at how we are spending money and can we spend it and achieve better results at a lower cost? There are some fundamental things I’d like to work towards in Smiths Falls, like public transit. There are many ways of doing it without incurring a lot of debt – but we need it for our aging population,” he said. Humphrey says he believes the town needs to focus on being more people friendly, on promoting its green spaces,

on increasing its crosswalks so that residents can cross without being intimidated by traffic. “We need to address our aging infrastructure, it’ll be a crisis if we don’t,” Humphrey said. “The money we’re spending now – let’s look at how we’re spending it – do we need to spend that much on snow removal? If it’s a hazard, yes it has to be removed but the question is, what can we do as citizens to help our town,” he added, invoking the spirit of John F. Kennedy’s 1961 inaugural speech. “What’s wrong with me going out and shoveling in front of my business – if we all did that we’d have a wonderful downtown at a lower cost.” As far as Humphrey is concerned every department and every aspect of the town’s spending needs to be carefully examined and funds need to be allocated more efficiently. “Community spirit is something sorely needed and our own evaluation of ourselves as a town needs to improve,” he said. “It fascinates me that people

Tony Humphrey who come from outside can see and appreciate what we have to offer but we can’t.” While Humphrey was not born and raised in Smiths Falls, his connection with the town began at a young age. “My association with Smiths Falls began with wanting to take tech class in high school and so I used to hitchhike

from Merrickville to Smiths Falls for tech class,” Humphrey said. Today he points to the Railway Museum, the walking trails, the Bascule Bridge, Heritage House Museum, the Rideau Canal, the parks and the Gallipeau Centre as the assets the town forgets it has. Born in the U.K. Humphrey came to Canada as a child with his parents in 1957. They lived in Ottawa and then Merrickville, where his dad worked for the foundry. By Grade 11, Humphrey had lost interest in school and took his first job as the wingman on a plough truck. “In those days you had to use a block and tackle to raise and lower the plough,” he recalled with amusement. He went on to work for the Smiths Falls Bottling Works until he got married. At that point Humphrey applied for and started working for the railway as a yardman. He went on to become yardmaster, brakeman, trainman and conductor. In 1975 he took a course to

qualify as a locomotive engineer. “The railway was very supportive of my continuing education,” he said. Until he retired Humphrey worked as a locomotive engineer but also continued going to school studying psychology and rehabilitation to qualify as a rehabilitation counsellor. “I started volunteering in rehabilitation and palliative care at the South Unit here in Smiths Falls and also sat on the board of Buena Vista, in Merrickvlle as well as the Alcohol and Drug Recovery Association of Ontario,” he said. In 2005 Humphrey retired from the railway. Now, with his two grown daughters at his side, he owns and runs the Good Life Bistro on Main Street, serves as president of the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario and is running for Smiths Falls council. “It’s something I’ve always been extremely interested in, but working on the railroad I could never have done it,” he said. “But now at this stage of my life it’s the right time.”

News - At the special meeting of Smiths Falls Town Council on Monday, Feb. 24 following the regular committee of the whole, council passed the 2014 budget for the municipality. The adoption of the bylaw was not without incident and very nearly didn’t pass when Coun. Shawn Pankow said he was unwilling to support the budget unless council was willing to increase its donation to the HUB. In the end Pankow relented and the budget passed. See next week’s Record News for more budget details.

Arts - It has 900 seats, fantastic acoustics and is hosting some wonderful shows on a weekly basis but the Gallipeau Centre theatre is still evolving. “We want to attract more local talent. Ultimately our goal is to provide first class entertainment at a reasonable price and become the entertainment mecca of the region with no traffic to contend with,” said Jim MacPherson, events coordinator TAG Productions. The theatre isn’t just a venue for area residents to see shows but also a venue for local bands, groups, fundraisers or conferences. Already the venue is run by an army of volunteers who come out for every show with enthusiasm. The space itself is adaptable with all kinds of lounges and breakaway rooms available for a variety of events. “If you have a band or a show that needs a venue, we’d like to hear you and from you and we are available for rent, but call us,” said MacPherson. The theatre, according to MacPherson, is available for community events as part of the Gallipeau family’s vision. It’s a community asset that’s not being used to its full potential. “We’re here to assist with your show, whether it’s poster design, ticket sales or sound we have the expertise and we want to help,” said MacPherson. Anyone who was in the original theatre when it was part of Rideau Regional

may be wondering about the quality of the sound in that huge space. “What Joe Gallipeau has done with baffles and the PA system has really cleaned it up,” said Clair Porter, from the band rukkus. “The acoustics are awesome and the soundman is awesome.” The current soundman is Don Norris, of Limestone Music. “We stepped in for the sound check, putting our music in Don’s hands and his mix was outstanding, we recorded the evening for our own use and it turned out incredible,” said Porter. In spite of the size of the theatre it has a warm and intimate feel according to MacPherson and Porter. “It’s kind of magnetic this place, the crowd we had was extremely supportive, warm and engaged,” said Porter. There are no shortage of bookings at the theatre with Abbamania and Night Fever coming up next followed by Irish Eyes are Smiling with Mountain Tay, Seamus Costello and Robin Averil, then in March there’s Only the Lonely tribute to Roy Orbison with opening act rukkus and in April there will be Music of our Times with Arlene Quinn and Lyle Dillabough. They’ve already had Stonewall Jackson, and Frank Mills at the theatre and have booked Lynn Anderson for November. “We want to turn this theatre into a destination, for great entertainment and great community involvement,” said MacPherson.

SAFETY TIPS Home Escape Planning: Good fire safety planning includes knowing two ways out of your home. In a winter storm, your exits may become blocked by snow or fallen trees, or be frozen shut by ice. Try your exits to make sure they are accessible.

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - MARCH 5, 1914 $11,750,000 will be spent - What the Province of Ontario will Expend for the Fiscal Year 1913-14 A dispatch from Toronto says: The tabling of the supplementary estimates in the Ontario Legislature on Friday by the Hon. L. B. Lucas marks the direction of financial assistance into several new channels and the strengthening of the support of many which are now well established. The policy of several of the larger departments has shown new departures to be advisable, and these are provided for, mainly with the intention of making a start and bringing them before the house. One of the more significant items on the list appears in connection with several miscellaneous sums, and sets aside $5,000 for the enforcement of the Canada Temperance Act. 50 YEARS AGO - MARCH 5, 1964 Changes in Policing Prompted by Crime Increase The increase of crime throughout Ontario as well as in Smiths Falls, has prompted Chief Constable Reg. Wride to make major recommendations to the Police Commission which would involve many administrative changes and require additional but necessary equipment. The Chief explained that in a small department, investigation of crime is hindered because all personnel are on shift work and some thoroughness must be bypassed. “It requires continued effort on the part of the investigator with no interference from any other duty,” he said.

Remember When

The Winnifred Street arena was built on the corner of Winnifred and Casey Street. The arena opened just in time for the 1912-1913 hockey season and was reported to be one of the longest ice surfaces in Canada measuring 220 feet long by 74 feet wide. This arena became very popular for hockey games,

She also arranged an “outreach program” at St Francis de Sales School. “It really makes it a community museum,” Ms. Ledbetter said to have the children visit and the house itself is a wonderful example of local history for them.

My life so far has been filled with crystal things

L

ifestyle – What a great name for a book: My Life So Far. Mom came up with that one the other day when we were driving around on our usual Sunday tour. Now, this wasn’t just an ordinary Sunday drive. My mother was driving… fast! She has a lead foot. And she says I’m a wild driver. I do too many things at once – like look for my chap stick, inhaler, put on my seat belt, (sometimes I do that while driving), check the mirror to see if I have breakfast on my face, or drink a coffee. Never do I text and drive, so she can’t yell at me for that. It’s my birthday next week, and I’m turning a “significant number.” But instead of getting all freaked out about it, I’m actually looking forward to it. Dust off the manuscript that I’ve been penning for the past 10 years. Find a publisher for this book of mine. Up to this point, I’ve been pretty unsure about where my life is going, or with whom I’m travelling. But I am evolving. My dad would be proud. I have a great job, family, friends. Who could ask for more? I’ve found a voice over the past few years. I won’t put up with nonsense or compromise who I am. I want truth, expect honesty and respect and I’ll give it in return. I recently had an experience with a spiritual intuitive. I’m all about living on a higher

10 YEARS AGO - MARCH 3, 2004 New code of conduct on hold after councillor raises concerns A bylaw to approve a new ‘code of conduct’ for the mayor and municipal councillors was put on hold after one councillor raised some last-minute concerns. Gerry Huddleston brought what appeared to be a routine rubber-stamping to an abrupt end, claiming he had shared the document with “colleagues” and had received new information that would prompt him to abstain from voting. “There are a few areas here I think are too restrictive,” he said. The seven-page document has been in the works since last year, councillor Jack Traynor noted in introducing the bylaw. Quoting from the proposed policy, he noted its purpose is to “better the town’s ability to govern the affairs of the town. “I’m very pleased to be able to bring this forward,” he said. But despite several meetings held to discuss the bylaw’s contents in recent months, Huddleston was not alone in voicing reservations.

LAURIE WEIR Weir View vibration and connecting with my inner self, or The Source, as some call it. I have native American background and finding more about my ancestry has been enlightening. But this spiritualist was unlike any psychic I’ve known in my life. I met her at an event in Almonte on the weekend, called Mid-Winter Milling on Mill Street. This is a spiritual and self awareness day for conscious living, so their website says. It’s very cool. Participating businesses up and down the street hosted psychics, Tarot card readers, astrologers, Reiki practitioners, reflexologists, angel card readers and more. I was on assignment, so I stopped in to Soul Scents and had a visit with Sue Bazett, owner and creator of the event. She said she wanted to have a day in the middle of the slow winter months to entice people to Almonte. And what better way to do that than to bring in psychics, she said. This is where I met Nancy Kerr-Wilson. We

sat in the back area of Soul Scents and had a visit. We connected right away. There was something about the integrity of this woman that put me at ease. She uses her natural abilities to encourage personal growth in their clients – but of course, her clients have to be open to the concept. It was nice to hear that I’m on the right path... connecting with my inner self to live a more harmonious life. Ha! I knew it. She works with crystals, and asked me to choose a few. I placed them on a cloth on the table that was set up between us. On the cloth were the elements earth, air, fire and water. There is meaning in all of this, but suffice it to say the placement of the chosen crystals led her to believe that great things are coming. I’m “on the right path.” I have “emotionally healed” and I am in the “bring-it-on stage.” As a child, pretty rocks always got my attention when playing in the dirt, or in the driveway or along a waterfront of Lower Beverley Lake. I’d hunt for rocks – the ones that sparkled and shone in the sunlight. Those pretty rocks are still playing a part in my life and now, they have a different meaning. I’m not pitching them across the pond, busting windows at the farm, or pinging them off my grandfather’s forehead. He would be relieved. But it’s all in the book… complete with photos. Now, about that publisher.

DNE budget surplus to go to bridge, road repairs, reserves desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – Drummond/North Elmsley Township had decided to spread around its end-of-year budget surplus to fix roads and bridges. Clerk Cindy Halcrow told the committee-of-thewhole meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 18 that by the end of 2013, the township had a surplus of $171,313 because of $10,000 in saved council expenses, and more than $50,000 in extra tax revenues. (The township also expects a credit of $26,000 from the OPP). Council voted to devote $$57,714 towards the road reconstruction reserve fund for West Shore Drive reconstruction for 2014, $35,000 to fix up Porter’s Bridge this year, and $78,599 to go back into the equipment reserve fund. “Porter’s Bridge, it does need some work,” said Halcrow. “We have four big demands in the years to come,” she added, which is why she recommended putting money into the reserve fund. Drummond School Road was one of the big priorities up for consideration in the next four years, and has been slotted for 2015, “but could possibly be done in a different year, depending on funding,” she wrote in a report to council. Also in

the report, Halcrow pointed out, “The equipment reserve will be depleted this year because of the purchase of the tandem truck.” The township has $2.2 million in reserves, and a long-term financial plan request-for-proposals went out to tender later in the week. “This will give us an idea of the reserves we need,” said Halcrow. Scott Cameron, the township’s public works manager, said that deck work was needed on Porter’s Bridge, and there are support beam problems under the concrete as well. “It is impassable right now,” said Cameron. “No one is using it right now… We will go to tender and we will get some quotes.” However, Reeve Aubrey Churchill chastised funding money on what he called “a bridge to nowhere. It seems to be an awful lot of money that goes into a bridge to nowhere… this is the third time I have been on council (and) we have fixed a bridge to nowhere.” “It is a closed road, is what it is,” said Cameron, who added that Drummond School Road and West Shore Drive could go to tender this year as well. Churchill pointed to the recent federal budget and the new infrastructure money that went

LE T TERS TO THE EDITOR

Property rights not dead in U.S. DEAR EDITOR: In case some people here have not noticed, an important victory for property rights has just occurred in Nebraska. Previously the Governor (who is a Republican and pro big oil) had passed a law declaring the state had the right to force property owners to submit to the Trans Canada Keystone XL Pipeline being laid beneath their properties on the way to the Gulf coast, whether they liked it or not. Well, some property owners took the case to state court and the judge decided in favour of the property owners, overturning the previous state

law. Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman said (last week) he would appeal the state court ruling. However the precedent has been set. Maybe we should take note of this event. It bodes well for us as we Canadians can now use that case as a precedent, thanks to English common law and our right to use precedents in other areas of the world where English Common law has been inherited. Hal MacGregor Secretary, Lanark Landowners Association

Tankard organizers receive thanks DEAR EDITOR: other associations the incentive to run other events Sincere congratulations and appreciation to the of this caliber. Travelers Tankard, Smiths Falls Curling Club, Once again, thanks for a job well done. loyal volunteers and fans, for providing first class entertainment for Smiths Falls and Ottawa Valley.

New legislation for child care issues DEAR EDITOR: Despite strong media attention on child care issues in Ontario, families in Lanark County may not be aware of new proposed legislative changes. The Ontario government is addressing concerns raised about the high number of infants and very young children in unlicensed (informal) child care homes. On Dec. 3, 2013, the Ontario government introduced new, proposed legislation for child care in the form of the Child Care Modernization Act (CCMA). This proposed legislation is designed to improve access to child care, clarify what child care programs must be licensed, increase the focus on providing quality care and give the government more authority to fine and close unlicensed informal provider homes where a child’s safety may be at risk. Proposed changes to the current child care system may mean more available child care spaces in Licensed Home Child Care in the near future. Currently unlicensed informal home child care providers (providers who are not with an agency such as CROW Licensed Home Child Care) can care for up to five children under the age of six, plus their own children. They do not have to adhere to the legislated ratios limiting numbers of children in care to two children under the age of two years and three children under the age of three years that providers

with a licensed agency are regulated to follow. The proposed CCMA legislation will introduce new ratios that apply to both licensed and unlicensed (informal) homes. Both will have to follow the two children under the age of two ratio (see above) and both will have to include their own children under the age of six in their ratios, however, providers with Licensed Home Child Care Agencies will be able to have a sixth child in care, while the number for informal care will remain at five. These changes, while positive, may have an impact on informal care as fines for infractions may rise to $100,000 $250,000 per offence. All child care provider homes contracted to CROW Licensed Home Child Care are regularly monitored by Home Visitors who are Registered Early Childhood Educators. CROW Licensed Home Child Care also participates in “Raising the Bar”, a quality assurance practice supported by the County of Lanark. Should you have any questions regarding the proposed legislation or wish to discuss the advantages of becoming a Provider with CROW Licensed Home Child Care please contact Kelli Cassidy at (613) 283-0095 extension 309. Sincerely, Kelli Cassidy, RECE Director, CROW Licensed Home Child Care

with it, and surmised, “If we qualify, maybe the (Drummond) School Road could be sewn up this year… depending on what we get and what we are qualified for.” Waterfront money Council also approved of Halcrow applying for a $10,000 matching funds grant through the Walmart –Evergreen Grant Program for planting “aquatic and native plants at the Rideau Ferry Docks,” wrote Halcrow in her report to council. The Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL) had approached township council in January about grant programs that it believed “would be a good fit for the docks,” wrote Halcrow.

Council voted on Jan. 28 to allow staff to apply for two grants, under EcoConnections and Soak It Up. “It looks pretty bad,” said Halcrow of how the area under the docks currently looks. The Eco Connections grant is for $25,000 of storm water improvements at the docks and to bring in trees, rain garden, bushes, landscaping and permeable paving. The township will match $35,000 for the work, but the decision on the Eco Connections grant will not be handed down until April. However, the joint township/REAL submission to Soak It Up, for $10,000 to host educational workshops, was approved.

Foodsmiths hosts Empty Bowls fundraiser News - What could be better than delicious red lentil curry served up in a beautiful, handmade ceramic bowl? Nothing more than knowing it goes to support a truly worthwhile cause. Circle Saturday, April 5 on your calendar and bring your appetite to Foodsmiths’ 10th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser, held at Foodsmiths store located at 106 Wilson St. West in Perth. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Foodsmiths has partnered with Empty Bowls since 2004, holding the fundraiser on site, and coming up with a recipe that highlights healthy, nutritious food. With the generous support of suppliers, and the help of the staff, a delicious meal is created to fill locally handcrafted and unique ceramic bowls, which are set up in the store throughout the month of March prior to the event and can be purchased for $20. All proceeds go to local sustainable food programs: The Table Community Food Centre, YAK Youth Centre, and Food for Thought Breakfast and Snack programs in Lanark County Schools. As well, Empty Bowls is the recipient of Foodsmiths April BYOB - Bring Your Own Bag - a charity bag donation program developed by Foodsmiths to encourage the re-use of grocery bags and to provide a source of funds for charitable

organizations in the community. For every bag a customer re-uses, 10 cents goes to Empty Bowls during the month of April. This year will also highlight a new initiative: The Many Hands Meet and Greet. This part of the event is intended to give attendees a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the enormous volunteer effort and the “many hands” that work together to make Empty Bowls an ongoing success. Invitees include Food for Thought, The Table Community Food Centre, YAK, Guatemala Stove Project, Joni Seligman, The MERA Potters, The River Guild Potters, and Frontier College, all of whom will be on hand to talk with the public about Empty Bowls. The success of Empty Bowls Perth has undoubtedly been due to the skill and dedication of project founder Jackie Seaton. He laid a strong foundation for Empty Bowls Perth, and had the foresight to construct a template so others could continue his legacy. Since his death in October 2013 many supporters have asked if Empty Bowls will continue to be available for purchase in Perth, and Foodsmiths is honoured to help carry on the tradition in a community that strongly and invariably supports the issues of hunger in the local community.

Filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mix of genres may leave audience with questions and less than impressed. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy but things go as well as expected for Ethan and Zooey. Then two things happen. First, Christine is called out of town for a couple of days leaving Ethan to look after Zooey on his own. Second, Vivi Delay (Amber Heard) another C.I.A. operative needs Ethan for one more job. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an arms dealer called The Wolf (Richard Sammel), and Ethan is the only person whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen his face. Vivi wants Ethan to find him and kill him, and for this sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willing to give him an experimental treatment that can extend his life. Ethan takes the job, but it leaves him trying to balance his life as an assassin and a father. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a highly skilled assassin but a lousy father. When the two worlds collide itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost too much for him to handle. 3 Days to Kill is a mess. Part of the film is this absurdly funny com-

that those three parts mixed together make a good movie. The dialogue, the visuals and the cast are all quite good. Hailee Steinfeld plays the bitter and rebellious teenager perfectly. Connie Nielsen has a real presence on the screen. I found Amber Heardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character confusing and MARK HASKINS unnecessarily disturbing though I edy. Another part of the film is this suspect that was more of a directoheartwarming story about a dying rial decision than an actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice. father reconnecting with his teenage daughter. Yet another part of this film is a brutally violent spy flick. It crosses these boundaries you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t normally cross, and maybe shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. But then again maybe that is the point. 3 Days to Kill definitely doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit any movie formula I know of. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely not boring, and each of those parts taken on its own are done really well. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just not convinced

Kevin Costner on the other hand is fantastic. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great actor and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what kind of mess heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in his talent shines through. I admire the attempt to do something unique, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they pulled it off. Still, I think 3 Days to Kill is one of those films you have to see for yourself, and make up your own mind. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

MOVIE: 3 Days to Kill STARRING: Kevin Costner, Amber Heard, Hailee Steinfeld, Connie Nielsen, and Richard Sammel DIRECTOR: McG RATING: PG Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I spent a lot of time starring at the screen in disbelief. 3 Days to Kill was something. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure what it was, but it was definitely something. After finding out he has terminal cancer Ethan Runner (Kevin Costner) decides to quit the C.I.A. and reconnect with the daughter and wife he left five years ago. His wife Christine (Connie Nielsen) is reluctant, but under the circumstances is willing to allow Ethan to spend some time with his daughter, provided heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really given up killing for the C.I.A. His daughter Zooey (Hailee Steinfeld), who knows nothing of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on, is now a bitter teenager

As a family, and on behalf of David we would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for the overwhelming support you have offered to our family over the last eight months – the food, the gifts, the visits, the pastoral & medical care, the beautiful cards and letters and the mountain of prayers, novenas, Masses and the incredible prayer services. We are so grateful and humbled by your generous hearts and we know that it was through you that the love of God sustained us. We would also like to thank all of you who made David’s funeral Mass at St. John the Baptist Church so incredibly beautiful – Archbishop Brendan O’Brian, Father Brian McNally, Father David Linder of Madonna House, all the wonderful priests, deacons, altar servers, ushers, the amazing musicians and singers, St. John’s Parish Staff, Stewart Blair and the Blair and Son Funeral staff for their incredible assistance and compassionate professionalism, Lanark County OPP and all of you for your heartfelt presence. Thank you also to St. John’s CWL for co-ordinating and providing the wonderful luncheon and to Best Western Hotel for offering their beautiful facility for our reception. We are so grateful and appreciative of everyone’s ongoing concern for our family’s needs and we thank you for your generous contributions to our Family Fund, the Mass offerings and prayers and the many ways you continue to care for us. There will be a huge hole in our lives and, although we are profoundly heart-broken, our comfort lies in knowing that ‘it is well, it is well with his soul’. Please be assured of Deacon David’s ongoing prayers (and rainbows & sundogs!) for each of you and your families. He loved you all so much! Lovingly in Christ, The Cavalier Family Elaine; Jaana, Tyler & Emma; Claire & Peter; Jacob; Noah; Joseph; Jonah; David Jr.

“WE REMEMBER”

IN MEMORIAM

FEBRUARY–MARCH

Just inside the main entrance of the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home is a book of remembrance. Each day we turn a page in the book. The names of those we have served are inscribed on that date along with the year in which they passed away. It is our way of honouring and remembering a life that was lived. It is also our way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973. As of July 1, 2014, our “We Remember” publication will only run in

The Millstone on-line newspaper. The Millstone covers Mississippi Mills and aligns well with the community our funeral home serves. Both my Dad and I have some ideas as to how we would like to move forward in honouring your loved ones. We hope to have these ideas come to fruition within the next couple of years. Should you have any questions, concerns or thoughts about our decision, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly by telephone, e-mail, or in person. “We Remember”

Legislation could require calorie posting on restaurant menus News – Ontario introduced legislation Feb. 24 to make it easier for families to make informed and healthy food choices. The Making Healthier Choices Act, if passed, would make Ontario the first province to require food service premises to post calories on menus. “We know that parents want more support to help keep their kids healthy. That’s why this new legislation will give parents and their kids the information they need to make healthier choices,” stated Deb Matthews, Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care. “I want to commend our health care and industry partners for providing their input into this important initiative to improve kids’ health.” The proposed legislation was developed following consultations with the food industry, health sector and parents. Specific measures in the legislation include: • Requiring calories for food and beverages, including alcohol, to be posted on menus and menu boards in restaurants, convenience stores, grocery stores and other food service premises with 20 or more locations in Ontario. • Requiring food service operators to post a contextual statement that would help to educate patrons about their daily caloric requirements. • Authorizing public health inspectors to enforce menu labelling requirements. This initiative builds on other steps Ontario is taking to help families live healthier, including the Healthy Kids Community Challenge – a provincewide initiative encouraging community leaders along with private and public sector partners to come together and develop initiatives to help kids stay healthy and active. Making it easier for Ontario families to choose healthy foods is a key component of the Healthy Kids Strategy and supports Ontario’s Action Plan for Health Care. “We know that many of our customers are seeking more nutritional information, and while many restaurants do provide this information, Ontario is now joining other jurisdictions in North America by introducing legislation requiring menu labelling,” said Tony Elenis, president and chief executive officer (CEO), Ontario Restaurant, Hotel and Motel Association. “Although our members prefer a national approach, with many municipalities such as the City of Toronto preparing to regulate menu labelling, the potential for a patchwork of policy models across Ontario would have dire consequences for our industry. That’s why we are pleased to see that the provincial government has heard our concerns and will ensure their legislation supersedes any municipal bylaws.” “We are pleased to see the Government of Ontario take a positive step forward in helping Ontarians make healthier food choices. The more nutritional information people with diabetes have the more empowered they are to make the choices that are right for them and their families,” added J. Richard Blickstead, President and CEO, Canadian Diabetes Association. Submitted by the Government of Ontario.

Vince Hawkes to be appointed Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Deputy Commissioner Vince Hawkes has been chosen to replace retiring commissioner Chris Lewis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am excited about the new challenge and humbled by the responsibility,â&#x20AC;? said Hawkes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will do my best to lead this fine organization forward with the vision and courage demonstrated by my predecessors.â&#x20AC;? Originally from the National Capital Region, Deputy Hawkes joined the OPP in 1984 and served in

a variety of progressively responsible roles. He is currently the Deputy Commissioner for Field Operations and is responsible for the operational activities of five OPP Regions, as well as the Aboriginal Policing Bureau and approximately 4,500 personnel. Well known and respected both within the OPP and the broader Canadian and international police sector, Hawkes brings a wealth of experience to his new role and, having worked closely with the outgoing commissioner, will provide impor-

tant continuity of leadership for the organization. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having worked closely with Vince over many years, I know the OPP

will be in good hands after I retire. I join many others in congratulating him on this very well deserved appointment,â&#x20AC;? said retir-

ing commissioner Chris Lewis. The OPP is one of the largest deployed police forces in North America

with more than 9,000 civilian and uniform employees who provide a variety of specialized provincial policing services

and municipal policing services to 324 communities. Submitted by the Ontario Provincial Police.

Preventing pothole pitfalls Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fluctuating temperatures this winter have put a lot of stress on roadways resulting in an early outbreak of potholes. Potholes can be dangerous for drivers and can cause serious damage to your vehicle. Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) offers motorists safety tips and insurance advice to prevent pothole pitfalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Potholes are not only a nuisance but they can also pose a serious hazard to drivers and their vehicles. Driving cautiously is always important, but more so on roads filled with potholes. The best advice for dealing with potholes is to avoid them and minimize potential damage if you strike one,â&#x20AC;? says Ralph Palumbo, IBC vice-president, Ontario. Safety tips to avoid pothole pitfalls: â&#x20AC;˘ Never hit your brakes before encountering a pothole. This can actually cause more damage to your vehicle. â&#x20AC;˘ Try and slow down as much as possible if contact with a pothole is inevitable. Let off the brakes the moment

before you hit the pothole allowing your car to absorb the blow. â&#x20AC;˘ Hold the steering wheel tightly. Hitting a pothole with a loose grip can cause you to lose control of your vehicle. â&#x20AC;˘ Always maintain the proper air pressure in your tires. Leave lots of room in front of your vehicle so you can see the road ahead and avoid potholes. Here are some indications that you should take your car into the shop to have it checked for damage: Reoccurring loss of air pressure; noticeable bends/dents in wheel rims; vibration in the wheel or in the seat; or the steering wheel is not aligned straight. You may file a claim with your insurance company (if you have collision coverage) or pay for the damage yourself. Consider your deductible and the dollar value of the damage before making a claim. Speak with your insurance representative to discuss your specific coverage. Submitted by the Insurance Bureau of Canada.

This year’s OFSAA senior boys’ basketball event will be held at Perth Crain’s Construction of Maberly, local veterinarian Steve Scott, Jason and District Collegiate Institute, from March 2 to 5. The players both on Schooley and Megan Schooley of Crain and Schooley Insurance, and and off the hard court all have had a hand in developing the four-day Jon Tysick, Blue Devil team member. event.

Sports – The Perth and District Collegiate Institute, along with St. John Catholic High School and Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute, will be hosting the provincial senior AA boys basketball championship March 2 to 5. OFSAA (Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations) is not just about a basketball team, says Kevin Bellamy of PDCI who is the convener this year. It’s about the communities coming together to host such a big event, as well as key sponsorships that he’s been working with over the past several months. For Crain and Schooley Insurance, it was a good fit, since 19 former PDCI athletes have worked or are working at the Perth insurance office. Jason Schooley and Megan Schooley are both former high school athletes and they say that being able to financially support this OFSAA tournament is a great connection. “Education and sports goes hand in hand,” Jason said. “Sports kept me engaged when I was a student.” Megan agrees: “It’s an innate sense of responsibility (playing competitive sports) and there are lessons to be learned. High school sports are a hidden treasure.” Jason laughed when he added that he was now “too old to participate, but now we can be there in a monetary way and we are proud to be able to do that.” Steve Scott, a local veterinarian, is also a former track star at PDCI who earned some provincial accolades over the years. As an athlete, “you get to see different communities and different schools. Seeing sports played at that level and how easy it is to OFSAA award Leanne Watt, a teacher and access, (if you are a committed volleyball coach at PDCI will be athlete) is amazing,” he said. Scott said Bellamy “just receiving a prestigious OFSAA

Award, Excellence in Leadership, during the tournament. Nominated by a former athlete under Watt’s charge, and now a colleague at Carleton Place High School, Watt was nominated for this award by Sarah Cordick. “Leanne Watt has been a strong presence in the school athletic community for many years,” wrote Cordick in her nomination letter. “She deserves to be recognized for her dedication and commitment to school sports and student athletes. I have learned so much from her. She is the ideal mentor; she is passionate, experienced and always puts the students’ interests first. She has taught me the value of sport and the importance of competition, but the need for character, fair play and sportsmanship.” Cordick listed many of Watt’s accomplishments at the school, including the implementation of a course, Sports Specialist High Skills Major. Watt has also been involved in administrative duties at the EOSSAA level (as treasurer) and has been one of the many helpers involved with bringing OFSAA competitions to the high school for three separate provincial tournaments. “Leanne embodies everything that OFSAA Leadership in School Sport Award entails,” wrote Cordick. “Her dedication to sport throughout her long, illustrious career at PDCI deserves to be recognized and honoured.”

“During his time at PDCI, our staff and students admired and respected his contribution to our school and our community.” McCuen exemplified and supported the ‘Education Through Sport’ philosophy. He believed strongly that sport and extracurricular activities

Special mention On Monday morning at 9:45 a.m., former PDCI principal Wayne McCuen will be doing the ceremonial ball toss to begin the OFSAA championship. Wayne is the honorary tournament chairperson. McCuen was a principal at PDCI for nine years during his 32-year career in education. “He has said many times that he loved his time at PDCI and that it was one of the highlights of his career,” said Bellamy.

asked” him to be a sponsor, and he jumped at the chance. Tammy Crain of Crain’s Construction of Maberly is another major sponsor of the event, and she also has a son, Mitchell who plays for the PDCI Blue Devils senior boys’ team. “For Mitchell, it’s about keeping a balance in sports and good grades and it’s really pushed him to keep committed,” she said. The team’s captain is Jon Tysick. The Grade 12 student says he’s looking forward to playing on the hard court in the provincial tournament despite losing to the Smiths Falls RedHawks in the Lanark County finals. (Smiths Falls represented the county, but lost to LaSalle of Kingston in the EOSSAA showdown last week. LaSalle is the EOSSAA first rep for the tournament.) “It was a tough loss,” he said about the game to Smiths Falls. “But I’m super excited to play at this high level. Not many high school kids get a chance to compete at OFSAA.” According to Bellamy, it’s less than one per cent of high school athletes who are able to participate in a provincial tournament of any genre. As the team’s captain, Tysick says he’s not too vocal when it comes to motivating the team, as he likes to lead by example. “Our team has proven over the season that we can play against teams at this level,” he adds. Tysick says playing sports in school has allowed him to be better at time management, prioritizing and has learned discipline. One thing that they all agree on is that it takes a community to raise a child and helping them through sports in school is one way they can accomplish that.

Bears split weekend games but still sitting in second place Sports – The Carleton Place Canadians are running away with the lead in CCHL action after taking two wins over the weekend, including a Friday night encounter with the Smiths Falls Bears – the only other team in the league that is even close to their point spread at the top of the Robinson Division. The Canadians, who lead with 103 points on an incredible 51-6-0-1 record, have a win percentage of .888. They are off the charts in comparison to the leader of the Yzerman Division, Ottawa who sits in first place with 74 points on 34 wins, 18 losses and two shoot-out losses. Carleton Place 5 Smiths Falls 2 The Bears were in a rare road-game Friday night (normally, they host), where they got tangled up with the Canadians in a 5-2 loss. Carleton Place held a 2-1 lead after the first period with goals from Kelly Summers and Andy Sturtz. Michael Buonincontri replied with a marker between the two Canadian goals, assisted by Brandon Lesway and Victor Beaulac on the power play. In the second, the Canadians went up by two with one more goal from Dylan Gareau. Smiths Falls got its second and final of the game in the third period when Nic March-

and scored, assisted by Sebastien Barrette and Beaulac early in the frame. Carleton Place responded with two more from Sturtz on the power play and Kelly Summers (empty net) for the 5-2 final. Just 10 minutes on five infractions were whistled on Smiths Falls, while Carleton Place was in the box on four infractions for eight minutes. The attendance for this Friday night show was 413 fans. Stars of the game were Brett D’Andrea and Anthony Latina for Carleton Place, while Buonincontri was the game’s third star. Winning netminder was Guillaume Therien, turning away 32 of 34 shots. Michael Pinios was hit with the loss with 21 saves. Smiths Falls 5 Cornwall 3 Sunday, the Bears were on the road where they picked up a 5-3 win over the Cornwall Colts in front of 724 fans. After a scoreless first, the boys opened the second with a back-and-forth effort as the teams traded two goals each to end the period knotted at two. Scoring for Smiths Falls were Ryan Duhaime and Chris King (power play) with assists from Marchand, Stefano Momesso, Beaulac and

Chris MacMillan. Scoring for Cornwall were Tanner Spink and Chris King. In the third, there was a barrage of goals from Smiths Falls as three back-to-back goals were scored. Credit went to Karson McCartney (from MacMillan), Marchand (from Momesso and Buonincontri) and Duhaime with a shorthanded empty-netter. Cornwall responded with Ross Craig’s power play marker to end the game with the 5-3 score. Cory Simic earned the win for Smiths Falls, as he turned away 19 of 22 shots. Anthony Kuhnreich took the loss on 21 saves. Game stars were Marchand and MacMillan for Smiths Falls, and Jay DAmour for Cornwall. Coming up The Bears hosted Hawkesbury Tuesday night but results weren’t available at press time. They were at Pembroke on Wednesday, but again, no results. Friday, they host Kemptville at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, they are at Pembroke. In the team’s final regular season game, they will be in Brockville to take on the Braves March 7 at 7:30 p.m.

Community - There aren’t a lot of people doing it, but there were enough to host the first carpet bowling tournament at the Smiths Falls Seniors Activity Centre on Feb. 20. “We have eight teams here today,” said Bud Fawcett president of seniors club 162 - Harmony Club. “We only have two teams from Smiths Falls, the rest are from Brockville, Prescott and Roebuck, etc.” Anyone can join the carpet bowling group in Smiths Falls, the only criteria is that you have to be 55 years of age, minimum. “It’s similar to lawn bowling or curling but this is a bias bowl,” said Marjie Bellem, tournament organizer. In a bias bowl the ball is weighted and participants learn to curl the bowl into the desired position. It’s not easy, but it is fun. “We play every Thursday at 12:45 p.m., and we have a very good club. We’ll help and teach newcomers to carpet bowl; it only costs $2 to come and play,” said Bellem. While the club meets regularly there aren’t a lot of local residents participating yet. Most of the carpet bowlers at Thursday’s tournament came from neighbouring towns. “The people here are friendly and make us feel welcome. We carpet bowl at the Legion in Brockville and we’ve carpet bowled here three or four times in the past few years,” said Terry Hammond,

Brockville resident who went on to win first prize with her team. Tournaments of course attract more players to participate and not every town has facilities or players to start up a carpet bowling group. “We don’t have carpet bowling in Kemptville. It’s very nice coming here, the people are great and I already know a lot of them from when I used to live outside Toledo,” said Jeff McCartney. The tournament was sponsored by Bill Black, owner of Midway Sports who provided all the trophies for the winners. Whether it’s a tournament or just a friendly game or practice, every event is accompanied by refreshments of some sort, and according to Fawcett, it’s free. Staff at the two Chartwell senior residences in town cater most events at the Seniors Activity Centre, located adjacent to the Smiths Falls and District Memorial Community Centre. “We do most of the catering on a goodwill offering basis, and proceeds usually go to the foodbank,” said Stacey Phillips, community relations manager at Chartwell-Willowdale. “Right now they want to support Big Brother Big Sisters, so the proceeds from this tournament are going there,” said Marie O’Neill, community relations manager at Chartwell - Van Horne. Carpet bowlers don’t have to be members of the senior’s club to participate in carpet bowling, although it only costs $5 a year to be a member.
