Community - For the students it’s about being creative and leaving their mark for future generations. For the school it’s about encouraging creativity and beautifying the school at the same time. So students at Chimo Elementary have spent the last week painting a mural inside the school. “This time we’re funding it through the school,” said principal Dawn Bouchard. It’s the second time Chimo has embarked on that kind of ambitious project. Last year they painted a mural at the front end of the school with the help of a grant from school council. “Last year our theme was Character Always and we hired an artist, Marcio Melo, who was part of a school program to beautify schools,” said Ashley Murphy, the teacher representative supervising the work. At the same time they had invited a local artist and art teacher, Cathy Rivoire to work with the visiting mural painter to observe and learn his techniques. This year, Rivoire was called in to lead the initiative of painting a mural around the school

cafeteria and its 22 windows. “It’s a great way to cover up the lower portion of those windows,” said Karen Donovan, learning resource coach, “which we need to do anyway in the event we have to go through a lockdown.” The cafeteria at Chimo is a large room centrally located in the school, but it’s surrounded by 22 floor-to-ceiling windows. “It’s a bit of a fishbowl that cafeteria. We were able to secure blinds from another school but they only covered about two thirds of the windows, so the lower window sections were painted a drab white that was getting scratched and this seemed like a good way to improve the look,” said Bouchard. This year’s mural theme is Healthy Living in keeping with the location. “I met with the students and brainstormed ideas for healthy living, then I asked them to do two to three drawings each on that theme. Once they had completed their drawings I asked them to pick their best drawing and each student was assigned a window,” said Rivoire. See CHIMO page SF2

News - The Smiths Falls budget has been passed. However, passing that budget was painful and council was divided over increasing the town’s tax rate by 1.1 per cent at the same time as the 13 per cent water rate increase. The budget passed with four votes for and three against. “I don’t think we had any choice,” said Coun. Shawn Pankow, one of the reluctant supporters of the increases. The dilemma for council was just how much can residents be asked to pay without causing undue hardship. “My concern is the impact of these increases on the average household,” said Mayor Dennis Staples, who did not support the tax increase. For the average household the 1.1 per cent tax increases will translate to $27 more in annual taxes collected on a $150,000 home. In turn it will generate an additional $200,000 in revenue to the town. According to Coun. Ken Graham this is the first increase in the town’s tax rate in at least 12 years. “We’ve been able to rely on the MPAC assessment increases and some internal adjustments to avoid raising taxes for the last number of years,” said Graham, also a reluctant supporter. According to Janet Koziel, assistant treasurer with the town, the increase will translate to a total $144.52 on that $150,000 home, once one adds up the $86.62 from the average 3.4 per cent MPAC assessment increase and the $27 from the 1.1 per cent town tax increase this year. For most of the councillors the increase, while not desirable, was a necessity. “I think we’re at the point where if we don’t do something now we’re setting up the next council for some serious difficulties, because we have a huge infrastructure problem coming down the road, and we need to start to address it now,” said Graham. As Pankow explains the town’s debt servicing bill is at $800,000 a year and while some of those debts will be paid out by 2016, that’s still

two years away and at the same time there are roads and sewers that need to be addressed. “A lot of infrastructure work has been deferred for years and years, and not enough attention has been given to sewer and water pipes, while more attention has been lavished on things we can see, like police and town hall – and every year we end up having to do repairs – the Coffee Culture break this year was a $20,000 repair job,” said Pankow. For some of the councillors the difficulty was compounded by the previously passed water rate increase. “The 13 per cent in my view was too onerous all at once. While there is talk that the province is going to mandate user fees to cover water treatment, that hasn’t happened yet and we have been moving in that direction anyway,” said Coun. Jay Brennan, who did not support either the water rate or the tax increase. For the average household the water rate increase, on a $140.86 bill every two months will be $18.31 bringing the bi-monthly bill to $159.17 or an annual increase of $109.92, according to Koziel. “Without the water increase we would have been looking at a five per cent tax increase,” said Pankow. “There is a still a shortfall in water treatment costs that the taxpayers are paying.” At current water consumption rates the town could see an additional $477,140 in revenue from that 13 per cent increase. “Raising the water rates will have an impact as well, people will pay more attention to how much they use, as they should,” pointed out Graham. In other words the actual revenue the town might expect could be considerably lower depending on how much water residents conserve. In the meantime council has earmarked the additional revenue to go towards this year’s infrastructure projects with $400,000 earmarked to go into reserve for next year’s major project – Foster Avenue which is projected to cost upwards of $800,000.

Josee Bessette, of the road user safety division, safety policy and education branch of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, spoke in Beckwith Township on Feb. 28 about driving under the influence of drugs and changes driving fines. paired Driving in Ontario: Toxicological Perspectives and THC Issues.” For Peaire, drug driving “may be as big an issue as alcohol-impaired driving.” A few years ago, the Ontario chief coroner’s office asked her office to look at back cases from fatal motor vehicle collisions from Feb. 1, 2011 to February 2012, to re-test for drugs and alcohol. Only alcohol had been tested before this time, though now all blood tests done involving a motor vehicle collision look at both alcohol and drugs. In the 2011-12 examination, 28.40 per cent of drivers were

found to have drugs only in their system, while 15.30 per cent had alcohol and drugs in their system. About 12.20 per cent had alcohol only in their system, and nothing was detected in 44.10 per cent. However, Peaire said that “I caution you with those numbers,” because while drugs may have been detected in one person’s system, it may very well be relatively harmless pharmacy-sold medication like blood pressure pills. While her office does not keep track of “successful See DRUG page 4

News – Proving someone is drunk behind the wheel is far easier to prove than if someone is high while driving. “Impaired by alcohol is very easy to prove,” said Cons. Dave Murphy of the Smiths Falls Police Service, during a talk at the Lanark County and Town of Smiths Falls municipal drug strategy committee networking day, Friday, Feb. 28, held in the Beckwith Township council chambers in Blacks Corners. Murphy is a “breath tech” officer, meaning he is trained to look for certain symptoms to identify if someone is drunk and impaired behind the wheel. Other officers are trained to do the same for suspected drug abusers at the wheel. “With drug impairment, it is a lot more difficult to prove,” said Murphy. “It is up to the (officer) to do the test on the person. It is up to the officer to prove the impairment,” since there is no breathalyzer for drug-driving. Another factor in such arrests for alcohol is that someone “could blow 50,” but still be impaired, while someone else might blow the legal limit of 80, and be completely inebriated. Yet another driver could blow over 80, not be impaired, and yet only be charged for blowing over 80. “Our job is not black and white,” said Murphy. While Murphy and his fellow officers have to rely on their training and critical observation, Amy Peaire, assistant section head, toxicology section, Centre of Forensic Sciences (CFS), which is connected to the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, has to rely on cold, hard, scientific facts to reach her conclusions.

Smiths Falls Police Service Cons. Dave Murphy spoke at the county municipal drug strategy committee meeting in Beckwith Township on Feb. 28. on a joint. Peaire agreed that such “drivers decrease speed under the influence of THC but it does not compensate for impairment.� Also with the “tracking deficit,� she found that “it becomes more difficult to move your vehicle in a straight line,� thanks to symptoms like memory loss, motor skill impairment, divided attention impairment, and increased response time, all necessary skills for driving. “The risk of a motor vehicle collision increases two times (as much) after cannabis smoking,� said Peaire. One of Canada’s most famous, and infamous, Winter Olympians was Ross

Rebagliati, who won a gold medal for Canada in snowboarding at the 1998 games in Nagano, Japan. He tested positive for THC, but it was not a banned substance at those games. Even so, in defending himself, he stated that while he had not smoked up himself, he had been in a room with others who were smoking, and got a contact high. While there was some skepticism about the BC athlete’s claim at the time, “scientifically, second-hand exposure to THC is a very real experience,â€? said Peaire. “You can get levels of THC‌ in your urine from secondhand exposure to marijuana.â€?

of drivers were male, 20 per cent female. While smoking marijuana while driving has made its way into popular culture as far back as Snoop Dogg’s 1994 single ‘Gin and Juice’ with its chorus “Rollin’ down the street/ Smokin’ indo,� (a strain of marijuana) may minimize the effects of driving while high, soberingly, of the 640 cases, 20 per cent were brought to the attention of police because of motor vehicle collisions. About 10 per cent were from RIDE program stops, 38 per cent from traffic stops, and 28 per cent from possible impaired driving stops. Of all of the cases where drugs were detected or suspected, the suspicions turned out to be true 97 per cent of the time. The most drugs detected in a single case were 18, though Peaire has heard of another case where 25 different drugs were found in a person’s system. After the presentation, Josee Bessette, of the road user safety division, safety policy and education branch of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, told the assembled that the fine for distracted driving was going up from $155 to $280 on March 18.

prosecutions� since it needs to remain unbiased, based on the 250 to 300 reports put out per year, about 25 per cent of those cases end up in court. “It is a substantial amount that proceed to court,� said Peaire. In July 2008 new provincial laws were enacted permitting speciallytrained police officers to inspect drivers suspected of being high while driving. Usually, a blood or urine sample is then sent to CFS in Toronto, and after testing a report is written up, detailing what drugs were found in the suspect’s system. Sometimes, Peaire and her coworkers are called on to testify in court as to their findings. “This type of court case is now the second most frequent type of court case for Ontario toxicologists,� said Peaire. But a urine test can only do so much however. “Urine is a waste product, so we cannot say for certain that the drug is still in the body,� and causing impairment. “THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) is the most widely consumed illicit substance world wide,� but it can remain in a person’s system for weeks, even up to a month later for chronic users, long after the impairing high has worn off. “It’s hard to co-relate any THC levels with impairment,� she said. “There is very little we can say to interpret blood and urine samples,� since the laws regarding drug driving are not based on concentration levels in blood or urine, as they are with drunk driving laws. Some drivers caught driving while under the influence of, say, marijuana, claim that they drive better after a drag

One test carried out in The Netherlands – where marijuana is legal to purchase – had a group of people who had never smoked marijuana before sit in a crowded coffee house, where marijuana is sold in that country, for three hours, while others smoked around them. “They could detect it (THC) in their urine, but the blood concentrations were very low,â€? said Peaire. Just like people who drink coffee frequently, for whom the stimulating effects of caffeine are not as strong as they once were, “with chronic users (of marijuana), they report that they do not‌ get the same high feelings,â€? as they did when they first started using. However, this still does not negate the negative effects of driving while high. “Tolerance to some THC effects can occur,â€? she said, but this tolerance does not extend to complex tasks. A case study was carried out, looking at 640 cases in the province from July 2, 2008 to Dec. 31, 2010, pored over case histories, information provided by specially-trained drug detection police officers, and toxicology findings, which found some patterns for drugged drivers. For the two full years looked at, there were 288 such drivers in 2009 and 285 in 2010. Overall, 80 per cent

Merrickville Jazz Fest seeking musicians for fourth edition of event this October By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

Arts – In the last three years since its inception, Merrickville Jazz Fest has become a signature event in the village, offering authentic jazz in a variety of locations. While it doesn’t take place until Oct. 16 to 19, organizers have hit the ground running in planning for this year’s fourth edition. In an effort to drum up support for the festival early on, organizers have already held a successful event Jan. 18 at the Baldachin Inn dining room featuring duo Anouk & Pierre. “It was amazing and we sold out,” commented festival co-organizer Peggy Holloway during a recent interview.

Baldachin Inn owner Dave Ellis, who hosts acts at his establishment during the festival and is heavily involved in its planning, said these special performances offer a sneak peek of the main event in October. “(These performances) are about promoting jazz. They keep it going all year round and gives artists an opportunity to display what they have to offer,” he explained. “We have more artists than we have space for, so some may not get in to play the festival, but they can play in venues throughout the year. Next up for these special performances will be the Peter Liu Trio, who will perform on April 25 at the Baldachin Inn from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Call the Baldachin Inn at 613-269-4223 or email baldachininn@gmail.com to

make reservations for the $40 dinner which includes the cover charge. They also issued their call for artists earlier this year on Jan. 18 in order to attract a wider selection of musicians. Application forms are available on the Jazz Fest website (www.merrickvillejazzfest.com) and the deadline has been set for noon on Monday, June 2. “We’re already receiving applications for this year,” Holloway confirmed. “What’s exciting about jazz is that there are a lot of different styles and one of the applications is all instrumental. We saw four or five distinct styles last year and

there’s a lot more.” “…We’d like it to grow, that would be nice,” she continued. “There are certain restrictions given the amount of time and size of venues, but last year we had twice as many (performances) and people showed up to more.” Some of those applications come from as far away as Yukon. “It’s encouraging that people from the Yukon and all over, including Toronto and Montreal, are interested in playing at these smaller festivals,” Holloway said. Holloway admitted that an increased budget and additional spon-

sorship allowed organizers to enhance last year’s festival. “Last year we did increase our budget considerably in terms of what we were spending on musicians and we’re always learning and we organized it so that people could get to everything if they wanted to,” she said. “We’d like to grow it (festival) in terms of the quality of musicians and the number of people coming.” “As we raise the budget, we can attract more artists,” Ellis stated. Holloway is grateful for the support See JAZZ page 6

Energy East pipeline a risk to local water supplies; info meeting March 12

Will our drinking water be safe? The proposed pipeline crosses Ottawa and North Grenville just above the Oxford aquifer, a source of drinking water for thousands of residents on private wells. If there is an oil spill, the Oxford aquifer and any wells in Lanark, North Grenville and Ottawa using the Oxford aquifer would be at risk. The Oxford aquifer is rated as highly vulnerable, because the soil in this part of Ontario is mostly very thin. And the rock under the soil has many holes and fractures, so liquids on the surface can percolate

Will our rivers be safe? In Alberta, a pipeline leak happens at least twice a day, so a costly spill in eastern Ontario is always possible. In 2010, a rupture in a 40-year-old pipeline carrying tar sands oil flooded the Kalamazoo River in Michigan. That spill cost nearly $800 million to partially clean up, but the river still lies polluted years later. Bitumen is a much thicker substance than oil, and is both toxic and corrosive, and if spilled in water it is more likely to sink than float, making it impossible to recover.

from local businesses and organizations, but this year organizers will be looking to attract more sponsors. Last year, Merrickville Jazz Fest added sponsorship levels (platinum – $1,000, gold – $500, silver – $300 and bronze – $150), and two larger sponsors, The Blue Pearl Foundation and the Baldachin Inn, came to the table. “We’ll be looking at garnering more corporate sponsors,” Ellis said. “We’ve had good sponsorship in the past but we want to go after some bigger stuff.” Merrickville Jazz Fest is a unique musical experience.

In fact, outside of their profits, organizers have been able to donate $6,000 back to the local community. “That’s significant,” Holloway said. “I had emails last year after people left and they felt that Merrickville was a jazz destination now, so that’s important.” To those who say they don’t care for jazz, Holloway and Ellis ask them to come and keep an open mind. “The most common thing I hear is ‘I don’t like jazz,’ but it’s the original, make it yourself, interpretive music,” Holloway said. “It’s a genre that allows you to colour outside of the lines,” Ellis added. Merrickville Jazz Fest organizers are always looking for feedback on how to improve the festival.

Health unit urges cooking basics during Nutrition Month through habit. The extras can be taken to work for lunch, which removes the need to rely on take-out or frozen meals during the work week. “Cultural influences are so strong towards the choices we make,” says Oickle. “Often this overrides knowledge.” To obtain free resources or to speak to a registered dietician, contact the Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark District Health Unit’s Health Action Line at 1-800-660-5853 (613-3455685) or visit the website at www. healthunit.org/nutrition.

Lifestyle – When it comes to healthy eating, the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit feels that the community needs to reconsider their eating habits and think about healthier choices when meal planning. March is Nutrition Month with a theme of ‘Back to the Kitchen with Cooking Basics’ which the health unit can help with. They have many resources, including literature on Canada’s Food Guide, Facts on Snacks, Iron – Are YOU getting enough? Eat Those Veggies! According to Dianne Oickle, registered dietitian/Public Health nutritionist with the Health Unit, she encourages people to cook using whole foods and ingredients to make a meal. “Cooking meals from scratch leads to higher intakes of vegetables, fruit, and whole grains,” says Oickle. “But the time constraints that many people have make the thought of homemade cooking seem like it’s not possible.” Here are some tips the Health Unit has come up with in helping to make cooking meals at home more manageable. “Have healthy foods on hand,” suggests Oickle. “Without basic, healthy foods in the kitchen, you can’t cook healthy meals. Set your home environment up for success. Some of the basic healthy staples you want to stock are fruits and vegetables. If fresh is not an option, use frozen or canned. It’s better to have canned vegetables then none at all.” Oickle went on to say that milk, eggs, pastas, whole grain breads and flour along with fresh vegetables and fruit are the mainstay. The mystery of whole grain products is that they have all three parts of the grain whereas white flour only has one part with a lot of the fibre removed. “We want people to eat more vegetables and fruit to be healthier,” indicates Oickle. “You can start anytime and I would suggest if you add just one to the menu, let it be vegetables and fruit. For frozen fruits try to avoid the sweet syrup that it is packed in. Watch the store flyers as the frozen fruit can vary in price.” Another tip is to prepare some ingredients ahead. Chop vegetables on the weekend that can also be used for other meals (or to snack on) during the week. Cook more pasta or rice than is needed for one meal, keep the balance in the fridge for reheating. Grate a whole block of cheese, freeze and use when required. Premeasure baking ingredients and store the dry ones together in a plastic bag so that only the wet ones need to be added at

Registered dietitian/Public Health nutritionist Dianne Oickle of the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit encourages people to cook using whole foods and whole ingredients to make their meals. March is Nutrition Awareness Month and as a partner in health, the Health Unit would like the public to obtain the facts about the foods they eat and consider the ‘Back to the Kitchen with Cooking Basics’. This practice allows for a higher intake of vegetables, fruits and whole grains which are essential for a healthy lifestyle. Find out more regarding salt intake, veggies, fruits, healthy snacks, iron and the easy choices. the time of baking. Regarding sodium, Oickle indicates that 85 per cent of our sodium intake comes from processed foods. “It does not come from the salt shaker on the table, as it only contributes five or 10 per cent,” informs Oickle. “It comes from cold cuts, crackers, potato chips, canned soup, sauces, frozen meals, and prepared meals like lasagna. Sodium is a preservative and it helps to preserve food.” Her suggestion is to choose items with less sodium and fat. Consider canned tuna or salmon, pre-washed baby carrots, frozen vegetables and fruit, canned legumes like chickpeas or lentils, frozen pre-cooked pasta, and hummus. “It’s all about balance,” shares Oickle. According to Oickle, a complete meal contains foods from at least three out of four food groups (vegetables and fruit, grain products, milk and alternatives, meat and alternatives), and it does not need to be complex or take a lot of time. “A sandwich on whole grain bread of meat and cheese with a piece of fruit on the side has all four food groups and takes less time than cooking a frozen pizza,” says Oickle. “Some other ideas for sandwich fillings are turkey with avocado

and tomato, cheese with pear and green pepper, roast beef with red pepper and onion, and hummus with cucumber.” Other ideas were to make a double batch of breakfast on the weekend to eat through the week. “Leftover breakfast foods such as pancakes and French toast can be frozen and re-heated in the toaster,” tells Oickle. “Make a big pot of oatmeal and store single portions in the fridge or freezer to reheat and serve with fruit and nuts. Cook scrambled eggs in muffin tins and freeze left-overs to grab quickly any morning or for lunch”. In addition to making one meal, think about cooking once, eat twice. “Make enough to use for another meal,” says Oickle. “If you’re tired of leftovers, plan extras for an entirely new meal; for example, when cooking meat, cook a few extra pieces to use for sandwiches or to add to pasta sauce. Cook extra chili to use for fajita filling. Make extra roasted vegetables to toss with pasta or in a sandwich.” The Health Unit also wants people who eat on the run to think about making extras of healthy meals or lunches to take with them. A cooler with leftovers or planned extras taken to kids’ activities avoids the drive-

One dictionary definition of “sustainable” is “able to be maintained” – and it’s something we hear often these days, mostly in relation to maintaining the ecological balance of our world. That’s the big picture of sustainability but, on a very personal level, sustainability is of vital importance to you. Will your retirement income be sufficient to sustain the lifestyle you want for all the years of your retirement? Here are some things to consider as you try to ensure your financial life is sustainable throughout your retirement. • Decide when you want to retire If you choose to retire earlier than age 65, you’ll have fewer years to save to retirement and more post-retirement years to fund. If you choose to retire after 65, you can opt to enjoy the tax-saving, income-building advantages of your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) until the end of the year in which you turn 71 – and you can further extend RRSP benefits after 71 by continuing to pay into a plan for your spouse who is younger than 71. • Decide on your lifestyle What you want to do and how you want to live in retirement will dictate its cost. Stay close to home and your costs may be lower. Travel regularly and your costs may escalate. You may choose to add to your income

Manage Your Money by continuing to work full- or part-time, on a contract basis, or even by starting your own business. • Add up your income from all sources Take stock of every post-retirement income source, including personal savings, company pensions, investments held in your RRSPs, Tax Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs), non-registered investments, and government sources such as the Canada Pension Plan, Québec Pension Plan (CPP/QPP) and Old Age Security (OAS). • Add up your costs Estimate your retirement spending requirements in three categories: 1. Essential expenses that can’t be reduced. 2. Discretionary expenses you can control. 3. Additional expenses such as healthcare that typically come along with aging. Calculate the income you’ll need to cover your essential and discretionary retirement costs as well as the additional income you’ll need to cover the ‘extra’ expenses of aging. • Bridge the gap If there is a shortfall between what you need and what you have,

you should determine the level and frequency of income you will need via withdrawals from your registered and other income-producing investments – and keep in mind that your retirement could span 40 years or more. • Reset your strategy If your estimated withdrawal rate is not sustainable based on projected returns from your current savings and investments you should reset your income strategy or reset your retirement plans. And before doing anything else, talk to your professional advisor – the sustainability expert who can help ensure your retirement income will maintain for all your retirement years.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Hillier proposes recommendations to Hydro One CEO Editor’s note: The following is a letter written by Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier to Hydro One chief executive officer Carmine Marcello, on Feb. 26. DEAR EDITOR: I’m writing to follow up on our conversation of Feb. 10. During our discussion, we agreed that I would provide a number of recommendations that would both improve the service Hydro One Networks and help the utility towards renewing its badly damaged reputation. The following recommendations are being sent to both yourself and Ontario’s Ombudsman for consideration. Hydro One anonymity: All Hydro One employees who are tasked with providing services to the public must be identifiable and easily accessible online – including employees’ names, phone numbers with extensions and email addresses. Escalating a complaint should not be impossible and customers

should know exactly who is dealing with their request/complaint and how to reach them. When dissatisfied with the progress on their file, they should know where to go next. This not only addresses the lack of transparency, but will instill a sense of pride of ownership and accountability. Billing verification: TOU meters are networked and transmit wirelessly. Customers need to be able to access their accounts in real time to view, scrutinize and verify meter data against present use. I would envision an application on your mobile device or home computer connected to the Internet could be developed so that customers can see what consumption data hydro is billing. For those without the Internet or a mobile device, Hydro one needs to change their terms of service from one actual reading per See LETTER page 9

COMMENTARY

Celebrating women Editorial – Girl power! On March 8, women throughout Lanark, Leeds and Grenville will be celebrated on International Women’s Day. While many may think the day is a fairly recent tradition, the first women’s day actually dates back to 1908 in Chicago. It has often been perceived as a way to combat anti-sexism and encourage civil rights, but in some areas of the world, it became a way for men to express their love for women, not unlike Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day. In today’s society, it has become an inspiring movement, an encouraging sign that the social, political and economic achievements of women should be applauded. Whatever the reason, we should make this day one to honour all women in our lives. This year’s theme for International Women’s Day, according to the United Nations, is ‘Equality for Women is Progress for All’ which speaks to helping advance women in all aspects of the world. It’s not just a celebration, but a message to keep fighting for equal rights for women. Locally, Lanark County Interval House (LCIH) will be hosting its own International Women’s Day event tonight (Thursday, March 6) at the Rideau Canal Museum in Smiths Falls, with a free film viewing. The organization will be showing MADE IN DAGENHAM, a dramatization of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham car plant, which shows how ordinary women banded together to do extraordinary things. Refreshments will be served at 5:45 p.m. with the film kicking off at 6:15 p.m. and the function is another way LCIH can not only celebrate the day, but also their 35th anniversary this year.

A night at community rink left everyone warm with contentment Lifestyle – It certainly wasn’t anything to get up in the middle of the night and write home about, according to my cousins from Ottawa. They had rinks inside of heated buildings and ice as smooth as glass, whereas the little rink behind the Northcote School was anything but grand. But it suited our purposes well, and certainly got lots of use once the ice was built up on the patch of ground that in the summertime was nothing but weeds and hay growing willy-nilly. The rink had stand-up boards on two sides, and each end was open so that we could just walk right onto the ice easily. As soon as the winter had settled in, the boys of senior fourth, along with their fathers, started building up the ice. It was a major job, since every drop of water had to be hauled from the farms around, or from the pump in the middle of the schoolyard. It was brought in big barrels, and timed so that many sleighs would arrive at the same time, and the water dumped on the spot. Using pails to take water from the school pump was a wasted exercise, since most of it would be spilled before

hitting the rink, and a pail of water did little to build up the ice. No one got on the ice until it was of the depth the Senior Fourth boys thought was proper, and this could take weeks at the start of winter. And then, finally, it was deemed suitable! And what a day that was. Miss Crosby, who excused no one from a full day of schooling, on that day, cut the classes short, allowed us to bring what passed for skates, and have an hour of fun before heading home. And what an hour it was! Of course, the ice was full of lumps and cracks and ridges, and until we learned what area of the rink to avoid, we spent most of the time picking ourselves up off the new ice. A couple of the farm fathers had made wide-bladed shovels, attached to the handle of forks, and the rule was that after each use, the ice had to be shovelled off, and the accumulated snow shoved through the two openings at either end of the rink. The older boys took advantage of this chore, and did it with their skates still on, and I noticed they always managed Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

to get a good skate in while doing it, and often had a fast game of shinny in the bargain. If there wasn’t a Saturday night house party in the community, whole families went to the Northcote School rink. Most came on big flat-bottomed sleighs, and they circled a big steel barrel that was filled with firewood, and once lit, the flames shot a mile into the sky, and even though there was scarcely enough heat to take the chill out of your bones, it gave a bit of relief to the freezing night air. Women sat on the sleighs wrapped in blankets, and most of the men stood around the burning barrel, smoking their pipes and talking farm talk.

mine were those hateful bob skates, dull as dishwater, and rusted brown. I used them until Miss Crosby one night, arrived with a pair of regular skates for me...handing them to me in a brown paper bag so that no one would know of the deed. I was ecstatic and finally was able to keep up with bad Marguirite, who not only had new skates, they were as white as the driven snow, and her mother had attached tiny silver bells to the laces, and she tinkled like someone from a fairy tale as she skated around and around the rink. There was no music of course. Not like in the rink in Renfrew where we once went to see an ice revue brought out from Ottawa, and listened to songs like “Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer true”, and “The Skater’s Waltz”. We would skate until Mr. Briscoe blew a whistle and that meant the fun was over for that night. We would try to do one more “Crack the Whip”, and then the boys would use the big shovels and scrape off the chips and snow, and another couple of barrels of water, kept on one of the big sleighs would be poured over the surface of the rink, left 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

to freeze over solid before our next night of skating. Then we would all head into the Northcote School where the Ladies Aid would have big pots of steaming hot chocolate sitting on the stove in the middle of the schoolroom. Always there were oatmeal cookies and ginger snaps, all of which vanished in jig time. I would tumble into bed, happily exhausted, with my toes still cold as ice, after crawling out of my clothes which would be soaked right through to my navy blue fleece-lined underwear, but with a feeling of utter joy and contentment. Our whole family would feel the same. My three brothers would have had a night of rough-housing, my sister Audrey would be asked to skate with a boy she fancied, I would be with my best friends, and Mother and Father would be happy that another night of community fun was had, and hadn’t cost a penny!

year to one actual reading each quarter when requested. Customers cannot live in fear of their electricity bill; they need to be able to plan and budget without worrying about a massive catch up bill. Courtesy benchmark notification: This would be similar to what cellular phone and Internet services provide their clients. As a customer approaches their normal usage, they ought to get a notification warning them they may exceed their historical usage. This allows customers to check for their irregularities in their usage and correct them if necessary before they run up against significant and possibly unexpected charges. Customer overpayment: While I am pleased at your recent announcement of a change to a refund policy, rather than credit policy for customers who have overpaid, I expect this refund policy to be permanent and not a temporary measure while you work out the billing problems. TOU meter investigations: I was told by Hydro one when TOU meters first came into effect and started creating problems for my constituents, that only bills that had increased by greater than 300 per cent of historical usage would be investigated. That threshold needs to be lowered substantially and based upon actual usage, not based on estimat-

ed billing. Estimating billing needs to end: We spent hundreds of millions of dollars to provide hardware and software that promised accurate billing. If the technology cannot provide the promised accurate billing, the customer must have the option of returning the TOU meter and having a standard meter re-installed. Customer service: Customer service needs to treat people with much more respect. “Pay up, or we’ll cut you off” seems to be the mantra of your customer service team. While I am well aware you have accounts that are in arrears for failure to pay legitimate bills, far too many honest, hardworking people are being victimized by the systemic failings of Hydro One Networks’ billing system. Mr. Marcello, I trust you will find these recommendations both reasonable and feasible. I look forward to hearing your progress in making improvements for Hydro One’s customers, the people who own the Crown corporation you manage. Although the Ombudsman continues his investigation, this doesn’t prevent you from implementing measures to correct known and systemic failings within Hydro One.

United Counties approves 2014 budget, 1.7 per cent tax rate reduction News – The following are highlights of the regular United Counties of Leeds and Grenville council meeting held Feb. 20, held in Brockville. Leeds and Grenville ratepayers could see a decrease in their taxes after counties council voted to reduce the tax rate while passing the 2014 budget in a regular meeting on Thursday. The United Counties reduced its tax rate by 1.7 per cent and will collect $33.6 million from property taxpayers this year. The approved budget provides for total expenditures in the amount of $101.8 million, of which operational expenditures account for $85.1 million and capital expenditures account for $16.7 million. “The goal is to keep services intact and costs down,� said Director of Corporate Services/ Treasurer, Nigel White. A residential property owner whose assessment was $100,000 in 2013 and 2014 could see a decrease of $6.26 in their property taxes for counties purposes and would pay $367.26 this year. However, the impact varies for each taxpayer depending on the phase-in of the assessments over a four-year period and therefore the average taxpayer should expect to pay two per cent more than 2013.

“We are currently in the second year of the four-year phase-in,� said White. A breakdown of the operating budget expenditures shows the largest piece of the pie is for Ontario Works at 23.3 per cent, followed by transportation costs of 18.6 per cent. Community housing and the paramedic service accounts for 12.56 and 12.62 respectively. Operating expenses are up by 1.6 per cent overall. The capital budget includes $1.5 million in additional funds for public works projects and $3.2 million in projects carried over from last year. It’s a decrease from last year’s $20.4 million in capital spending when $6 million was needed to upgrade regional fire communications. Road and infrastructure work accounts for 87 per cent of capital expenditures. Land ambulance services take up 4.11 per cent, followed by 3.72 per cent for community housing, two per cent for corporate services and 1.89 per cent for county properties. The taxation base includes real growth (new assessment) of $442,246, or an increase of 1.3 per cent.

three counties council members have been appointed to a steering committee to review future cost-saving options or combining operations at longterm care facilities Sherwood Park Manor and Maple View Lodge. Three Sherwood Park board members, Holman, Athens mayor Herb Scott, Elizabethtown-Kitley mayor Jim Pickard and Edwardsburgh/Cardinal mayor Bill Sloan make up the committee.

“The goal is to keep services intact and costs down.� NIGEL WHITE, DIRECTOR OF CORPORATE SERVICES/TREASURER

They will work with staff from both facilities in partnership with consultants hired by the Counties. The committee will report to counties council and Sherwood Park’s board of directors. The consultant’s study is expected to be complete in April. “We have to think outside of the box on this one,� Warden Ron Holman said, adding Leeds-Grenville needs a comprehensive report to determine Committee formed to review its overall need for long-term beds both now and in the fulong-term care facilities Warden Ron Holman and ture.

The Counties cannot afford to lose Sherwood Park’s longterm care beds, he said. Sherwood Park Manor is a non-profit facility with 107 long-term care beds. Last year officials said the facility was in financial trouble and needed help. They approached both the City of Brockville and the Counties for support. Maple View Lodge is a 60-bed facility which receives provincial funding but still costs Leeds Grenville taxpayers approximately $1 million each year to operate. Both facilities have been looking at ways to increase revenues, reduce costs and remain viable. The steering committee, along with professional assistance in long-term care facilities from PRISM Partners Inc. and Claire Annis and Associates will look at short and longterm opportunities to enhance the operations and the possibility of combining the two facilities.

The resolution is in response to a propane shortage in January which left some Leeds Grenville residents and people in other parts of the province without propane for days and weeks. The resolution is to be circulated to the Ministry of Energy, Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown and MPP Steve Clark.

Council reacts to propane shortage Counties council passed a resolution asking the provincial government to develop partnership programs where, in emergency situations, there is mutual assistance between fuel providers.

Kemptville BIA request for funds back on table Counties council will take another look at a business organization’s request for funds when it reconvenes in March. Council agreed to reconsider a motion to provide assistance to the Old Town Kemptville

Call for municipal liability insurance reform An Ontario Private Member’s resolution calling for municipal liability insurance reform is being supported by counties council. Randy Pettepiece, MPP for Perth-Wellington, drafted the proposed motion. Pettepiece is asking for a comprehensive, long-term solution by June 2014 to reform joint and several liability insurance for municipalities. Municipal insurance premiums have dramatically spiked in recent years due to higher litigation costs.

Business Improvement Area (BIA). Both the Municipality of North Grenville and the Kemptville BIA have stated businesses in Old Town Kemptville have been hurt by the closure of County Road 44, a thoroughfare leading into the town from the south. The road has been closed since last summer when work by a construction firm hired by the Counties began on the CPR Bridge. The BIA is asking for help with a promotional campaign to bring consumer traffic back to the community’s downtown core. A decision to review the request again came after the BIA provided more data and a marketing partnership breakdown. Upcoming meetings Committee of the Whole on Tuesday, March 4; joint services committee on Wednesday, March 5; joint services committee on Wednesday, March 19; and counties council on Thursday, March 20. All meetings begin at 9 a.m. in the council chambers at 25 Central Avenue, Brockville. For more information contact County Clerk Lesley Todd at 613-342-3840, ext. 2454.

News – Schools in the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario will be closed on March 7. This is a second unpaid, non-working day for all permanent teachers in local schools. “The March 7, 2014 may be a professional development day for students, but it a second unpaid day for teachers in the CDSBEO,” says Barb Dobrowolski, president of the eastern unit of Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA). “Our board was not able to generate enough additional savings to offset the additional unpaid day, and so for the second time this year, teachers in will not be at work, nor will they be paid for that day.” During negotiations for the 2012 collective agreements, the government originally demanded that, in addition to an overall wage freeze, the teachers’ salary grid be

MPP helps put highway winter maintenance probe in gear News – Ontario’s Auditor General will investigate why motorists have encountered such dangerous conditions on provincial highways this winter after a motion from Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark was passed unanimously at a legislative committee meeting recently. “I’m pleased the committee has asked the Auditor General to investigate the reasons motorists in Leeds-Grenville and in every corner of Ontario have had to take their lives into their hands when they get behind the wheel and travel on a provincial highway this winter,� said Clark after his motion was passed by the Standing Committee on Public Accounts. “Constituents are writing to me and calling my office after almost every snowfall to say they’ve never seen Ontario’s highways in such terrible

shape,� said Clark. “I’ve brought their concerns to the attention of MTO officials, but we haven’t seen any improvement. I’m confident the Auditor General is now going to get to the bottom of what’s behind these poor road conditions and the numerous collisions and highway closures we’ve seen this winter.� Clark’s motion calls on the Auditor General to review MTO’s Winter Maintenance Program and the contracts negotiated by the ministry with contractors across the province. The report is to be completed before the end of this year. Among the issues to be investigated are: the number of winter maintenance vehicles in use, circuit times for operators, the proper and efficient use of chemical melters and salt by contractors, hours of operation, and response times.

The scope of the review is to include one year prior to when the Winter Maintenance Program was privatized. “Ensuring our roads are as safe as possible during the winter driving season is one of the fundamental responsibilities of the Ministry of Transportation,� stressed Clark. “There’s no question the minister has failed Ontarians in that regard this winter. I welcome the Auditor General’s probe and look forward to a report that will help prevent this from ever happening again.� Locally, Clark wrote to MTO officials in support of a request by United Counties of Leeds and Grenville council for an urgent meeting to discuss poor drivPhoto by LAURIE WEIR ing conditions on Highways 401, 416 and 15.

Why can’t NHL hockey be more like the Olympics? cage. Call it “luck” or “divine intervention” – call it whatever you want! The rubber disc rattled harmlessly off a goal post and was cleared out of harm’s way. That’s how close the Americans came to winning. As all interested Canadians know, that set the stage for MariePhilip Poulin to take her place in Olympic hockey history. Her powerplay goal at 8:10 of overtime completed a truly amazing comeback. It was her second goal in less than 10 minutes of play. Poulin, 22, a native of Beauceville, Quebec had also netted the tying marker with 55 seconds left in regulation. Poulin was also the heroine in Vancouver in 2010 when Canada played host to the 21st Olympic Winter Games. She scored twice to pace the host country to its third consecutive gold medal in women’s hockey, a 2-0 decision over the US. In Sochi our women earned gold for the fourth straight time at the Winter Olympics. A truly amazing feat! The Canadian men further inflated national pride with their workmanlike 3-0 shutout win over Sweden in the gold medal game in Russia. Chalk up a second straight golden performance for our national men’s team. At times it seemed the Swedes would never control the puck. That’s how dominant their performance was! In the final, goalie Carey Price

of the Montreal Canadiens earned his second straight shutout. He had blanked the Americans 1-0 in the semi-finals. That score flattered the US team who were totally outplayed but got great net minding of their own from Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings. Great defence Price was sensational as Canada used great defence to augment its stellar offensive work. The big goalie only allowed three goals in six tournament games, all of them Canadian victories. In fact Price kicked out 123 of the 126 shots he faced in the short but intense competition. Canada used the same defensive model to score wins over Norway, Austria, Finland (the eventual bronze medalists) and Latvia. On the men’s side the end result is that Canada is the first nation to claim back-to-back gold at the Winter Olympics since NHL players first began participating in the Olympics in 1998. Also, just for the record, the back-to-back gold medals on the men’s side are the first for Canada

since our amateur teams accomplished the feat at the 1948 and 1952 Winter Olympics – before I was even born! Our Sochi success in men’s hockey is easily the best performance by a Canadian team in Russia since the historic 1972 ‘Summit Series’ featuring Canada and the USSR. Just in case you have forgotten, we won that series. Perhaps you have seen Paul Henderson’s series winning goal somewhere at some time? Yes, I am being facetious! Now for the point of this week’s reflection. The headline underlines my thinking after watching the men’s hockey final at the Olympics. Why can’t the NHL offer hockey of such outstanding quality on a regular basis? I think the answer is they could, if there was any will on the part of the league hierarchy to move in such an “ambitious direction.” But what exactly is the NHL’s ambition? Personally I can’t figure it out. In so many cases mediocrity rules when it comes to the path the league is now following. I have already stated my opinion about fighting in the NHL so I won’t belabour that for long. But my point remains. The league brass should be working to reduce fighting in the sport for the benefit of fans and the many skilled players who inhabit their 30 teams. We saw what skilled NHLers can deliver in Sochi and it was

wonderful to witness. No fighting or nonsense during hockey games at the Winter Olympics. Any team that gets into that has zero chance of success. I didn’t see any “enforcers” on the ice in Sochi either. What a blessing that was. So, why isn’t the same formula applied in the NHL? Personally I am tired of hearing that the only way hockey can be sold to the American audience is by promoting “the physical part of

the game.” That’s just an excuse to allow the scourge of fighting to have a place in a sport where it clearly doesn’t belong. I have no problem with physical hockey. Body contact is part of the game and it can be done cleanly. So, put the right penalties in place and fighting would be very quickly drummed out of the NHL. That would speed up a game which is being slowed See COLUMN page 24

Lifestyle – The headline mirrors my thoughts after watching the Canadian men’s team, made up entirely of National Hockey League stars, skate to a gold medal finish during the 22nd Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia last month. Meanwhile the Canadian women struck gold for an unprecedented fourth straight time and in even more dramatic fashion. What incredibly good hockey it was! Canada winning both competitions made it even better of course. But the fact is the sport has never had a better showcase than during the final games of both the men’s and women’s tournaments. No worries about judging and poor marking. Just good old “fire wagon” hockey with all four teams involved doing their level best to top the podium. Our women’s come-from-behind 3-2 overtime victory against arch rival the United States is the stuff of sports legends. With time quickly winding down in the third period Team Canada trailed the Americans 2-0. The Canadian ladies refused to quit scoring twice, including the tying goal with under a minute remaining and our goalie on the bench in favour of an extra attacker. During that incredible closing sequence Canadians held their collective breaths as a shot from a US player traveled slowly but surely toward the empty Team Canada

Business – Homeowners preparing to buy a new home this spring may be faced with the difficult decision of whether or not to sell their current home before buying another. According to Ontario realtors, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to making this decision. “Personal circumstance really dictates how a homeowner should tackle this situation,” says Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “While selling your home first alleviates the financial burden of carrying two homes, it really comes down to what your needs are.” Dorner recommends homeowners play it safe by putting conditions into their offers. “To sellers, I advise including a condition that says they will sell their home only if they find a new home within a certain time-

frame. A conditional offer can protect the buyer as well. In the event that they do not sell their current home, they won’t be obligated to buy the home they have an offer on,” says Dorner. Dorner reminds homeowners to consider both the pros and cons of selling versus buying first: If selling first: • You’ll know how much money you have to spend on your new home. • You will be able to make firm offers on homes that you are serious about buying. • You may have to rent or make other arrangements until you find your next home – in many short-term situations, the new homeowners will allow you to rent back your old home, provided you cover their costs. • Understand the rules around the portability of your mortgage.

This option lets you transfer the interest rate and all the existing terms of your current mortgage to your new home (subject to a credit review and property appraisal).

“While selling your home first alleviates the financial burden of carrying two homes, it really comes down to what your needs are.” PHIL DORNER PRESIDENT, ONTARIO REAL ESTATE ASSOCIATION

If buying first: • You may have to finance both homes and carry extra debt until you sell your current one. • You may be pressured to sell your current home at a reduced

price in order to align the closing dates. • You’ll only have to move once and can avoid putting furniture in storage. • If the market is “hot” then this option may be the only way to ensure that you are able to compete with multiple offers and get the home that you want. “Be sure to speak to a realtor when choosing your strategy,” says Dorner. “These specialists can also help you negotiate comfortable closing dates, get you a good price on your home, sell it quickly and help you understand your finances.” More information is available at www.wedothehomework.ca.

CMHC: Ontario housing market to stabilize this year News – Ontario housing activity has regained some momentum which will persist into early 2014 before easing slightly later next year, according to the Fourth Quarter 2013 CMHC Housing Market Outlook – Canada Edition released Oct. 31. Ontario annual home starts are expected to decline and reach 60,800 units this year before stabilizing at 60,300 units in 2014. Ontario housing starts will range between 54,000 and

66,600 in 2014. “Housing activity will slow in 2013 but stabilize by 2014 thanks in large part to a gradually improving Ontario economy, lower inventories of unsold homes and less out-migration to other provinces. Tight resale market conditions for single detached homes, active repeat buyers and improving income growth will allow demand for lower density homes to hold up better over the forecast horizon,” said Ted Tsiakopoulos, CMHC’s

Ontario regional economist. Ontario existing home sales have gained strength and will gradually lead the market higher into 2014. MLS(R) sales will range between 180,200 to 222,400 transactions in this year and next. Ontario home prices will grow in line with inflation in 2014.

down and damaged because league officials continue to encourage this nonsense. You certainly don’t see fighting regularly in the National Football League or the National Basketball Association. And if you fight in soccer (the world’s leading team sport) the consequences are incredibly severe. Why not clear the ice for skilled players and let the enforcers find their true home in mixed martial arts or the wrestling ring? Reward success I also feel the current overtime and shootout provisions in the NHL need to be reworked. Poor teams are benefiting from overtime losses. If this system has to continue then at least reward winning teams with three points and separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. Preferably I would like to see teams who win in regulation or overtime awarded two points while the losing team would not receive a single point. It would be great to see shootouts eliminated entirely. That would soon open up the standings! Another idea I have read and like is that the NHL use percentages in the standings, just as they do in Major League Baseball. If that were done a quick look at the league standings would quickly tell

you who the best teams are. Percentages in sports don’t lie! As it stands the NHL teams with the least talent are forced to play a defensive style which reduces many games to shear boredom. Those teams in turn can benefit from the “luck� which often determines shootouts. A few players are good in the shootout phase, many are not. A few seasons ago as a member of the media I was watching an Ottawa Senators’ game in the press box at what is now Canadian Tire Centre. It was one of those games I just alluded to. Both teams jammed up the centre and the result was an excruciatingly boring contest which would easily cure anyone’s insomnia. “Boring� is a flattering term relative to that particular game. It was truly terrible, just as many NHL games are to this day. I was sitting next to a reporter for a television station in Watertown, New York. When the game mercifully ended he stood up, shook my hand and said, “I’m sure glad I didn’t have to pay to watch that!� I shook my head knowingly as we parted company. Yes, for my money the NHL should be working to emulate what happened during the recent Winter Olympics. That was hockey at its finest and on the men’s side the participants were mainly NHLers. Instead the bright lights

Connected to your community

at NHL headquarters and in league boardrooms, are actually considering not allowing their players to participate in the next games in South Korea. The Olympics

“interrupts the regular season and is too hard on the teams who are hot at the time of the break.� That’s what the “experts� are saying as they try to make a case

for NHLers to skip the Winter Olympics. That would be diabolical considering what we just witnessed in Russia! Canadian fans in par-

ticular had better hope that idea doesn’t take hold. If it does it could be another 60 plus years before we see back-toback gold medals won by our men’s teams at

the Winter Olympics. If you have a comment or question for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers. com.

It’s a cash grab for one day only at Full Circle Theatre this week Arts – In a first for Full Circle Theatre (FCT), CASH GRAB, a brash young comedy troupe from Toronto will blow into town on Friday, March 7, to shake a few things up. They are a young and exciting comedy troupe who are getting rave reviews in their first year as a touring company – ...awesome and memorable...uproarious... mind-bending...fast-paced, high-energy and consistently hilarious� to the blog Bloody Underrated, while Mobtreal says “...the audience was hooked, as obvious from the non-stop laughter.� The seven-member troupe are in the middle of a province-wide tour and are stopping in Perth for just one performance on Friday. They have appeared at Yuk-Yuks and Second City and at Toronto’s Comedy Bar. Tickets are at both Ticketsplease (www.ticketsplease.ca) and Shadowfax (www.shadowfax.ca). A little later in the month, on Thursday and Friday, March 20 and 21, the second annual Spring Thaw High School Drama Festival fills the FCT stage. It’s a non-competitive festival previewing some of the regional entries in the annual Sears High School

Drama Festival. This is a chance for young performers to hone their productions in front of a live audience before taking them to the Sears competition and it always offers some fine performances and a style of theatre you don’t see elsewhere. Tickets are $5 for students; adults are $10 at the door.

March 31, it’s a chance to audition for BarnDoor Productions’ (BDP) summer classic. BDP’s summer classic series goes back to 1996, and has included shows from Shakespeare’s Hamlet to Sheridan’s The School for Scandal and John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera. This year, it’s William Wycherly’s bawdy and outrageous 1673 comedy, The Country Wife. A play so racy that it was banned for more than 200 years, CASH GRAB, a it offers lots of great roles for men and women alike. Oddly, brash young despite it being a classic play comedy troupe from the 17th century, it has as women’s roles as men’s! from Toronto will many The informal audition begins blow into town on at 7 p.m. and all are welcome. experience needed, just a Friday, March 7, to No willingness to get involved. shake a few things Remember: community theSubmitted photo atre doesn’t happen without the up.

Unrequited love, deception and golf highlights of Mudds spring farce By LISE CORBETT

Arts – Love and mounting misunderstandings between two young people. Unrequited love. Lies and deception. The angst of golf, the thrill of competition, the triumph of virtue over deception. Sex and the promise of sex. And fast-paced dialogue and action. All of these are hallmarks of the classic English farce of the 1930s and 1940s. The Fox on the Fairway is a fast-moving script from Ken Ludwig, one of the best playwrights in modern theatre. This adult play features lightning-quick dialogue, twisty plot lines, mistaken identities, deceptions, lots of physical action, and zany characters. It explores all of these elements in a fun, fresh way and holds the audience captive throughout each scene. In Fox, a golf tournament between rival clubs provides the backdrop against which frictions, lies, deceptions, and intersecting love affairs spill out. Although the game of golf lies at the

heart of the story, rest assured you need not have an interest in or even the slightest knowledge of the technical aspects of the sport to enjoy the plot as it unfolds in the country club and on the fairway. Fox presents six rich archetypal characters. The string of misunderstandings between them gives rise to mounting tensions, all of which are played out in a hilarious storyline dotted with twists, turns and surprises, not to mention a good many entrances and exits on the part of the characters. There is Louise, the ingénue, young, volatile and emotional, who is madly in love with Justin, a nervous protégé and mama’s boy who is also young, volatile and emotional. He is also an awesome golfer. Bingham, the protagonist and Justin’s mentor, is middle-aged, tense and grumpy. He is not madly in love with his wife and in fact is secretly in love with… but let’s not divulge any more details for fear of giving away

too much of the plot. The character of Dickie is a scheming, conniving villain who has very bad taste in sweaters. To complicate matters, we have Pamela, a strong, sexy middle-aged woman with a unique secret birthmark, who was previously married to one of the characters and is secretly is in love with... oops! Pamela doesn’t mind a strong drink and is not afraid of strong language. Finally, there is Muriel, a middle-aged, bitter dowager with all the charm of an old battle-axe. She loves her antique shop and has a vested interest in a mysterious Chinese vase, which is featured prominently in one of the scenes. The Fox on the Fairway is a great tribute to classic theatrical farce. Director Brian McManus had a lead role in another classic Ludwig farce,

Lend Me a Tenor twice in the 1990s, and he is eager to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Tenor with this recent hit. Fox follows on the heels of the award-winning parody of farce, Noises Off, which was presented two years ago in the Carleton Place Town Hall. Like Noises Off, Fox has found a stage in Carleton Place and is sure to keep the audience enthralled and laughing until the very end. The Mississippi Mudds will present Fox on the Fairway at the Carleton Place Town Hall (175 Bridge St.), March 28, 29 and April 4 and 5 at 8 p.m. and March 30 at 2 p.m. Tickets, $20, will be available at the Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce (132 Coleman St. 613-257-1976).

We would like to send out a huge thank you this week to another Cupcake Day contributor Heidi Bell and her network of volunteers who baked cupcakes, promoted the event and collected donations under â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cupcake for a Causeâ&#x20AC;? with all proceeds going to LAWS. Cupcake for a Cause raised an incredible $2,500 for the animals at LAWS! Natural Pet Foods in Carleton Place will be hosting a fundraising event for LAWS called LAWS Adoption Day on Saturday, March 15.

what he really prefers is spending quality time with kind and well-grounded people, who take him for long, quiet walks, then cuddle with him. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s used to being the only animal in the house, and because of his tendency to chase smaller animals, what King needs most is a forever home guided by the firm, but gentle hand of a strong pack leader or trainer. King has been with LAWS for far too long. He has seen many of his fellow canines come to the shelter and get adopted over the past to years, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn for a loving home.

Most of Canada’s farms are still family operations. So, it’s not surprising that the farmers running things are not necessarily trained in human resources management and workplace safety. But when children help with the chores, or when outside help is brought in as farm hands and seasonal workers, clear communication and safety regulations become more important than ever. That’s why the Canadian Agricultural Association, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, and Farm Credit Canada are working together with the Government of Canada to promote the farm safety theme “Let’s Talk About It” during this year’s Agricultural Safety Week. Carolyn Van Den Heuvel is a Canada FarmSafe Advisor for the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association. She says that written safety policies and standard operating procedures are worthless if they are not communicated properly to those who need to know about them. She recommends that new staff be indoctrinated right off the bat about safety expectations. It helps to know if they’ve had prior training to operate equipment and if they have a good safety record.

Distracted, recalled, and shaky â&#x20AC;&#x201C; car counsellor advises motorists Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Media outlets of all type in Ontario recently were publicizing the move to higher fines for drivers charged with using a hand-held electronic communication device. If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard already the fine is going up to $280 from $155 on March 18. Regulators said the move was needed to stem the tide of this offence which can have disastrous and deadly results. For those that might need a little help breaking the texting or web-surfing smartphone habit (and with the average user checking their phones more than 150 times daily itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite a habit) there are some smarter-than-asmart-phone tips for drivers. One of the best Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen was shared with us recently by Matt Evans of OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving). A company called Evolution Bureau has posted a short video about this tip on YouTube. You can view it on its own web page at www.redthumbreminder.com. The basic premise of this tip is if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a habitual texter/surfer, you would paint your right thumb with a particularly bright red shade of nail polish. Then, when you pick up the phone, your thumb would stick out like, well, a sore thumb, and remind you not to use the phone while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re driving, or talking to someone, or dining with family, or, any number of situations. By making it more permanent and noticeable than a simple piece of string or ring around your finger, you invite questions and comments from others which can lead to meaningful discussions on the risks of distracted driving. Check it out. A recently announced General Motors product recall regarding ignition switch failures has seen the number of vehicles involved increase to 1.6 million units from the original 780,000 Chevrolet Cobalts and Pontiac G5s (2005-

2007). The recall has been expanded to encompass Saturn Ion (2003-2007) and Sky (2007), Chevrolet HHR (2006-2007), and Pontiac Solstice (2006-2007) sold in the US, Canada and Mexico.

Media outlets of all type in Ontario recently were publicizing the move to higher fines for drivers charged with using a hand-held electronic communication device. If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard already the fine is going up to $280 from $155 on March 18. GM says a heavy key ring or jarring from rough roads can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position and shut off the engine and electrical power. That can knock out power-assisted brakes and steering and disable the front air bags. GMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice for drivers is to remove any extra items from their key chains/ rings and to contact their dealer for repair and parts information. The recall will involve replacing the ignition switch. Our winter driving tip involves how to get

the shimmies out of your vehiclesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wheels. After driving through almost any type of deep snow, ice and slush can accumulate on the inside of the wheel rims leading to vibrations at higher speeds. These shakes can be smoothed out by de-icing the wheels. All it takes is a little heat. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a heated indoor parking spot, either take your vehicle through an automated car-wash with an underbody spray system or park it in a heated parking garage for a few hours. When the ice and slush melts off, your smooth sailing should return. If you have any questions, opinions, or sto-

HUB future menaced by reduced town funding By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Local resident and inventor Prim Singh made the trip to Peterborough to audition for the Dragon’s Den show on CBC. Inset: It took him seven years and 500 prototypes to finally come up with a working wonton-making machine. Shown here, Prim Singh of Smiths Falls shows off his pride and joy, which he will be presenting on CBC’s Dragon’s Den at the end of the month.

Local inventor will pitch to Dragons this month By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News - He has called Smiths Falls home for the past 25 years, and on March 29 he’ll be travelling to Toronto to present his invention and business proposal on the Dragons’ Den. “I’m really hyped about it,” said Prim Singh, local inventor and business entrepreneur. The whole endeavor started almost 20 years ago when Singh and his family, started making and selling wontons to supplement the family income. Fried wontons are a Chinese finger food, made from a batter that’s rolled flat, filled and then folded to hold the filling. “We couldn’t keep up with making the wontons, we supplied places from Ottawa to Montreal – but just couldn’t make enough to keep up with demand,” said Singh. They eventually closed down the wont-

on making business but the idea remained with Singh. “Every time you have a wonton in North America chances are it’s handmade,” said Singh. “So I set out to build a machine that could make wontons – I had never done anything like that and really hadn’t a clue.” It took him seven years to develop a machine that would fill and fold wontons consistently. Grace’s Goose as the machine is called, makes 1,000 wontons per hour, more than the family of four could produce by hand in the same amount of time. On Jan. 29 this year, Singh with his son showed up at an open audition for the Dragons’ Den show at Trent University in Peterborough. “The reason I’m going to the dragons is that I need guidance – I’ve never done anything this big before and I feel it has the potential to become huge.”

He will also seek some investment while he’s there but only 30 per cent of what he thinks his business is worth right now – so less than $100,000, but added, that picture keeps changing every day. “We were given a number and told to go to a room when our number was called where there would be two producers ready to hear our pitch,” said Singh. Equipped with signage and product, father and son waited their turn to have their say. “It was pretty nerve wracking because you have a very limited amount of time – you have 60 seconds to arrive and set up and then 90 seconds to make your pitch,” said Singh. They managed to get through that ordeal and were told they would be called if they had been accepted. On Feb. 14 Singh received a call from the CBC telling him See PITCH page SF6

News - Community grants have been disbursed and not all community groups got the funds they had asked for. “We absolutely had to stop the onslaught of requests; it was getting out of control,” said Smiths Falls town councillor, Ken Graham. This year’s community asks had reached $327,800 and after a look at the first draft of the budget councillors realized community grants would have to be capped. It was agreed that $80,000 in community grants was the most the town could afford. For some groups that has meant a significant reduction in funding. One such group is the HUB community pool, which has proven its popularity in the short months since it opened. “Our request to the Town of Smiths Falls was for $50,000 in operational funding and consideration for water cost reduction or forgiveness. This week it was announced that the Town of Smiths Falls will be contributing $20,000 to our operational funding, with no consideration for reduction in water costs. The public, and our members, are now wishing to know how this contribution will impact us,” said Robert Rodine, president the HUB. As far as council was concerned it would have been impossible to give the HUB any consideration for a reduction in water costs or forgiveness, after raising the water rates for residents. At the same time with 600 registered users and many more drop-ins in just the first six months of operation, the popularity of the pool is self-evident. However only 40 per cent are residents of Smiths Falls. The bulk

of users live outside of town, so to spread the costs more evenly the HUB had approached surrounding municipalities whose residents use the pool. “The HUB was asking us for $19,600 for a little more than 40 users, for each of the next four years at which time they would make a determination whether they would need more or less funding to cover their operational shortfall,” said Douglas Struthers, mayor of MerrickvilleWolford. So far the HUB has only received an answer from two of the municipalities, Smiths Falls and Merrickville-Wolford. “The Hub requested approximately $112,000 in contributions from five regional municipalities and based the amount requested on proportional use from data collected during our early months of operation. To date we have received official responses from two municipalities, with Merrickville-Wolford unable to contribute to operational funding,” said Rodine. According to Struthers, it was a hard decision but ultimately came down to town finances. “We’re under a lot of pressure since the reduction in the Ontario Municipal Partnership funding. This year we’re dealing with $53,680 less in funding along with a $40,000 increase in Ontario Provincial Policing costs,” said Struthers, whose council also unanimously decided not to sign a recreational cost sharing agreement with Smiths Falls for the use of the arenas. It’s a Catch 22 for the HUB. It needs the funding to both maintain current operations and to expand and achieve sustainability. If it doesn’t secure that funding it can’t expand. See HUB page SF2

Ashley Murphy, teacher representative supervising the work surrounded by students painting their individual windows or some of the background on the walls. Ashley Murphy, with Ellee Cleroux, partly hidden beside her and Shannon McAllister just about to start her window and Brianna Moore in the background. Focused on the art, Leah Joy’s window depicting healthy living was nearly complete by Thursday morning as part of the mural project at Chimo Elementary in Smiths Falls.

The student painters were picked from Grade 6 to 8, and with 22 windows to work with, each student was assigned their own window space for their creative endeavor. “I think it’s cool because we get to express our ideas for healthy living and leave our ideas and creations on the wall and people in future will get to see our work,” said Ellee Cleroux, Grade 7 student artist. The students were all clearly enjoying the painstaking work, as they applied acrylic paint to their own window designs. “I thinks it’s really fun

It will also have more difficulty becoming self-sustaining. “Our financial plan has always included contributions from donations, business sponsorship and various fundraising activities. As our municipal contribution amount gets further away from the requested $112,000, the balance will have to be attained in another fashion, while still maintaining our goal of expansion in order to reach a point of sustainability,” explained Rodine. Not all Smiths Falls council was in agreement over the reduced funding for the HUB. “Even though there is high demand for the community pool I don’t understand why this council doesn’t see it as a priority,” said Coun. Shawn Pankow. “My concern is that without municipal support, we risk losing something that is a really good thing for the town.” Other councillors see the issue a little bit differently, pointing to the burden on the

to leave our mark on the school,” said Shannon McAllister, Grade 7 student artist. Though the schools two murals don’t share the same theme, Rivoire is insuring that they’ll still blend. “Once we assigned the windows, I pulled some of Marcio Melo’s designs and stuck with some of his ideas and added some of my own,” said Rivoire. While this is the second consecutive mural project, it’s not an annual event according to Bouchard. “We may bite off another section of our school in coming years, but at this point there are no immediate plans,” said Bouchard.

The staff and student helpers were in the kitchen bright and early to ensure the 180 students had their pancakes for breakfast.

PITCH

Community – In their first foray into the TLC Ministries’ annual Soupfest this year, The Good Life Bistro of Smiths Falls earned top marks for best creative soup from the judges for their squash and pear bisque with maple cinnamon cream.

that he had been selected among thousands to make his pitch to the Dragons. He was given four dates to choose from. “I chose March 29 and they confirmed the date, so that’s when I will be meeting the Dragons,” said Singh. In the meantime he has a fair bit of prep work to do. He’s been told that another producer will be in touch soon to go over the details of what to bring, wear etc. “My plan is to have my two kids with me, my son Dean will open our pitch with who we are and that we’re from Smiths Falls and what we’re asking for, then my daughter will step up to explain what brought us to manufacturing

and selling wontons then both kids will offer the product to the dragons while I explain the business matrix, it’s future and exit plan and try to show them why they should invest - why it makes sense for them financially,” said Singh.

In the meantime Wonton Crunch will continue to operate from the small industrial kitchen sanction by Health Canada, from the Singh home. He already supplies the K-Rock Centre in Kingston, Algonquin College, Pakenham Ski Resort and Sens Plex. He’s supplying the Local Heroes franchise, and will be the featured dish at Broadway’s Bar and Grills this month. Locally the wontons are available at Andress Independent and Garden Market.

Harsh winter sparks earlier parking restrictions By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News - On Monday March 3, a public meeting was held in Smiths Falls council chambers at town hall with regard to an application for a zoning amendment at 16 Victoria Ave. Public notice had been given both through direct mail notices and an ad in the local paper. There was nobody in attendance. Council heard a presentation from the town planner recommending the zoning amendment from light industrial zoning to residential R5 zoning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The property is currently composed of one residential apartment unit on the upper floor and a bar/restaurant on the ground floor. Neither unit is currently occupied,â&#x20AC;? said Niki McKernan, town planner in her report. The proposal is to convert the existing building to a four-unit apartment building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This matter will come up for discussion at the next committee-of-the-whole on March 10 and notice of the passing of any bylaw will be circulated 15 days after a decision has been made,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Jay Brennan, who chaired the meeting. Special committee-of-the-whole meeting A special committee-of-the-whole meeting at the same location, followed the public meeting. Several issues were raised. Land sale A staff recommendation to close off a portion of the Russell Street West road allowance and to enter into an agreement of purchase and sale over three parcels of land with Joseph Quattrocchi of Quattrocchi J. and Co. Ltd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parcel 1 is currently used by Quattrocchi and Company as a loading dock for their

warehouse. The parcel appears to be a remnant piece of land that was not properly transferred by way of tax sale in 1947 by the town,â&#x20AC;? wrote Nicki McKernan, town planner, in her report to council. The second parcel is a vacant unserviced parcel of residential land surrounded by industrial lands used by Quattrocchi. The third is an unmaintained portion of road allowance thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being used by Quattrocchi for access to their yard and warehouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Council is good with staffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation on this issue,â&#x20AC;? said Brennan. Treasurerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report Town clerk Kerry Costello, gave a report to council on council remuneration and explained to council that the pay cut they had agreed to would be applied from March to December at the rate of $65.18 per month. However she pointed out that council would need to exempt the police services board members from the cut as their stipend is currently tied to councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at 25 per cent of councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remuneration. Employment agreements Costello went on to inform council that the town would like to enter into an employment agreement with Gary Bisonette, facilities superintendant to act as manager of community services on an interim basis until the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service review is completed, and a bylaw to that effect would need to be passed. Bisonette has been working with the town for many years and worked closely with Rick St. Dennis the former manager of community services who has just retired. Costello went on to announce that the town would like to enter into a one-year employment

agreement with Kevin Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dair as the new community development coordinator and that a bylaw to that effect would be tabled at council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not a new position it just fills a position that has been vacant since 2013,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Dawn Quinn. Council meeting Following the special committee-of-thewhole, Coun. Jay Brennan acting as mayor in the absence of Dennis Staples, opened the regular council meeting. Regrets from Chris Cummings, Ken Graham and Staples were received and accepted. The bulk of the bylaws passed were housekeeping bylaws, including acceptance of the fire chiefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report, the extension of waste and recycling contracts and annual council remunerations in addition to the two employment bylaws mentioned above. Of note was a bylaw to amend winter parking regulations to start earlier in the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a winter like this to change our winter parking bylaws,â&#x20AC;? commented Coun. Shawn Pankow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re moving to a start of Nov. 15 or first winter snow for winter parking restrictions. This year our first winter event was on Nov. 22.â&#x20AC;?

OPINION

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - March 10, 1914 Wage hike Prisoners in the provincial jail at Lethbridge are allowed 50 cents per day wages, and employed at road-making in summer and broom-making in winter. The wages are sent to the prisoner’s family if he has one, or otherwise are given to him at his discharge. The problem of the high cost of living that is vexing the world would soon he solved if people took Dr. Tanner’s advice. He says that ten cents worth of food per day is enough to keep any individual in good health. He has earned the right to speak on this subject because he once went forty days without eating anything. 50 YEARS AGO - March 12, 1964 Mill cut The 1964 Public School estimates, approved at a meeting of the Board on Tuesday evening, calls for fewer financial demands upon the Smiths Falls taxpayer, due mainly to the recent re-assessment of the town. A total of $240,238 is the 1964 levy required for schools operation. This is an increase of $14,192 but nevertheless represents a drop of 3.770 mills on commercial assessment and 3.373 mills on residential and farm assessment. Another contributing factor in the drop in the Public School rate was an estimated $5,624 increase in Provincial grants and a surplus on hand at the end of 1963 totalling $8,009. 25 YEARS AGO - March 8, 1989 Fate of DIP fund discussed Questions on the possibility of building an indoor pool in Smiths Falls continue to surface. This evening at 7:30 p.m. the DIP fund will be discussed at an open meeting in the Smiths Falls Council Chambers on Beckwith Street. The fund, begun 20 years ago with the goal of developing an indoor pool for the town, now contains over $42,000. Tonight’s meeting is being organized by the local Lions Club and is intended primarily for those who have donated to the fund. Lions president Bud Anderson said, “I think the main thing will be for those who contributed to decide what will be done with the money.” 10 YEARS AGO - March 10, 2004 Pump breakdown Some quick work by a local firm prevented what could have been serious environmental damage after one of the three pumps at the town’s waste water treatment facility broke down. Utility/environmental services director Dave Hartwell said if not for the assistance of Kilmarnock Enterprise, the effects of the breakdown would have been far more severe. “We were able to get that pump repaired and back on line before we had a serious flood,” Hartwell told council.

Let me choose my own poison, thank you

Y

ogurt. It really shouldn’t be that difficult to find a yogurt that isn’t zero per cent fat. I am not on a diet and don’t want to be on a diet. More importantly I crave the taste and that means fat. I’m sorry, folks, but zero per cent fat yogurt tastes weird and has an unpleasant texture for me at any rate. For me yogurt is a treat, a bit like ice cream is for most people. It used to be that I could walk into just about any supermarket and pick up a yogurt without any trouble. Now I find myself standing in front of the yogurt displays for close to 15 minutes trying to find just one tub that a) is not 0 per cent fat and b) is stirred. All right, so grocery shopping is not my favourite pastime but surely it shouldn’t be that hard to find fairly mainstream foods at the supermarket. I’m finding all these trends very confusing. We’re told saturated fat is bad, then no, it’s necessary. Milk is good, milk is bad, coffee is good, no it’s bad, wine, butter, and margarine, sunlight – the list keeps growing with no apparent end in sight. Wheat is bad for us all and some of us are apparently allergic to it – I’m confused and frankly fed up. I try for balance… eat and drink everything

Compiled by Leanne Jarrett

HOWAIDA SOROUR Heddy’s Ramble in moderation and with maximum variety. So far it seems to have served me well. I have no allergies and no digestive problems, and I’m still active north of 50. Yes I know I’m lucky. Then again I don’t think luck has much to do with it. I think growing up with balanced farm fresh meals and tonnes of exercise had more to do with it. Processed food hadn’t reached Egypt when I was a kid – although powdered milk had (yuk!). I digress. The thing is, in an age when we are being bombarded by copious and conflicting information on what we should and should not consume, what we can and cannot digest as humans, I long to simply be allowed to make my own choices based on my own possibly flawed preferences. I say possibly flawed because there is so much information out there and so much of it

is contradictory that it’s hard to know whether the information I’m gathering is accurate or simply what I want to hear based on my own taste buds. Oh yeah, I know there are reliable and unreliable sources on the Internet, but sometimes – especially when it comes to nutrition – the lines get blurry. My solution is to take it all with a grain of salt and rely on what my doctor father always repeated – moderation. So when my choices are limited by trends I get ticked off. I understand that there is an obesity crisis out there, but it doesn’t automatically follow that everyone needs to watch his or her weight. Nor does everyone need to look like Twiggy (I know I’m dating myself there) but you get the picture – it’s our different body sizes and shapes that make us so loveably unique. If we’re healthy and active, if we eat well and regularly, surely a few extra pounds in various places should be allowed – nay celebrated. I know I’m standing on really thin ice, because I’ve struggled most of my life to keep weight on – then again, you could say I envy those who struggle the other way. Yeah, the grass is always greener….

How can we keep spending? DEAR EDITOR: The third reading of the town’s budget passed Feb. 25, but barely. The real story of this is, why it was so contentious? There were four people not supporting the tax increase going into the meeting. Councillors Pankow, Quinn, Brennan and Mayor Staples. Let’s examine the voting records of these four over the last year. I’ll use the three most costly spending proposals. New police headquarters: Pankow, against, Quinn, for; Brennan, for; Mayor Staples, for; fire truck: Pankow, against; Quinn, against; Brennan,

for; Mayor Staples, for; fire hall complex and renovations: Pankow, against; Quinn, for; Brennan, for; Mayor Staples, for. These three initiatives were all supported by two of the budget hold-outs, namely Mr. Brennan and Mayor Staples. The new police headquarters and the fire truck added $400,000 in debt servicing costs alone. I ask, how can you continually vote to spend money (money we don’t have) yet not raise taxes? Of course, it would be simplest not to spend money they don’t have. Shawn Morrison, Smiths Falls

Here’s where we stand on weed The marijuana you can receive from government approved facilities is only shipped from the plant to doctor approved clients. It can not leave the facility any other way. Information from the Health Canada website tells us that clinical trials have shown marijuana to perform slightly better than traditional treatments in addressing pain, despite the euphoric effects potentially limiting this. Further clinical trials are currently underway, according to the Canadian Cancer Society website, to measure the drug’s ability to address cancer symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and appetite loss. The studies will also look at long-term harm. While the medical community continues its work to test this substance that ancient cultures have used for countless years as a pain killer, Colorado in the United States of America is undergoing a social study beginning this month of its own by legalizing cannabis. In the mean time there are people in this community and across Canada lying in bed suffering from pain and illness while those in Colorado feel no pain.

Community – A delicious aroma wafted throughout the North Grenville Municipal Centre March 1 during TLC Ministries’ annual Soupfest fundraiser. This year, 15 restaurants from Kemptville, Merrickville, Smiths Falls, Morrisburg and Prescott participated in the event, which raises funds to support the organization’s ministry work. Visitors had a chance to sample each soup and rate their favourites for the People’s Choice competition. Shown here Melanie Boudens, left, and Amanda Humphrey of The Good Life Bistro in Smiths Falls, were kept busy offering guests samples of their squash and pear bisque with maple cinnamon cream. The unique creation earned them the best creative soup award.

DEAR EDITOR: The March 31, 2014 deadline that ends the Marihuana Medical Access Program organized by Health Canada and replaces it with a system that requires those legally allowed to consume cannabis for medical/therapeutic reasons to have their drugs shipped to them from a federally approved plant (such as Tweed) is drawing closer. The Smiths Falls Municipal Drug Strategy Committee (SFMDSC) supports the use of cannabis for medicinal/therapeutic purposes only. Firstly, the committee recognizes the rights of an individual who is facing a debilitating or possibly chronic disease to have an option on how they will receive relief from pain. That being said, it is important to underline the difference between medicinal cannabis and street drugs. Medicinal product is created in a government approved and inspected (regulated) facility by professional growers who ensure their plants don’t contain more than prescribed levels that are usually around 17 per cent of the active drug (where street drugs can have anywhere from 25-75 per cent). The higher the concentration of the active ingredient the more dangerous the drug can be.

Neesonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest thriller becomes too dull, predictable My Take MARK HASKINS

ure out who the killer is or someone else is going to die. It could be a passenger, it could be a crew member, it could be anyone. To make matters worse it begins to look to everyone else that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bill. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discovered that the account the money is supposed to be deposited into is in Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. Someone is trying to make it look like a U.S. air marshal is hijacking a plane. Aside from Nancy (Michelle Dockery) a flight attendant, and Jen (Julianne Moore) a passenger, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no one Bill can trust. Until Bill can figure out whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing this

and why no one is safe. Non Stop isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offensive. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t badly filmed. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mentally taxing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of innocuous really. To my mind if these are the best things I can say about a film then it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really much of a film. The concept of a mysterious hijacker using an air marshal as part of some nefarious plot is intriguing. Unfortunately the intrigue doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long and boredom sets in quickly. The characters follow the usual stereotypes, the plot becomes predictable and the ending, the whole reason why the hijacker is doing what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing, was boring and anticlimactic. There are moments of tension and some decent dialogue here and there. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a lot of infuriating moments where you know the characters are being dumb on purpose because if they could think this film would never happen. There is one bright spot in Kyle.

Kyle, played by Jason Butler Harner, is the co-pilot and my hero. I love this character, and Harner provides a small ray of talent in an otherwise dreadful film. For the most part Julianne Moore phones in her performance. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there but you kind of wonder why. My guess is sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helping a friend. I love Liam Neeson. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great

I understand why he wants to keep busy, but maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to stop and read those scripts first. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to be a little more discriminating. While on flight from New York to London air marshal Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) gets a text. The person on the other end claims that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll kill someone on the flight every 20 minutes unless he gets $150 million deposited in an account. Bill takes the threat seriously, but no one takes Bill seriously. He has a history as a washed up New York cop, and as an alcoholic. Then the 20 minutes is up and someone dies.

Lianne Vandusen To all our wonderful family, friends, neighbours, and teachers, words cannot even come close to thank each and everyone of you who helped us through our unbelievable grief during the passing of our beloved Lianne. The many beautiful cards, gifts of food, words of comfort, and generous donations to her beloved Benjamin’s education were more than we could ever imagine. Thanks you so much to Reverend Jill Turnbull for the words of love and comfort, to Megs for the wonderful eulogy for our beautiful girl, and Tammy for your words of friendship and love. There are so many friends of Lianne’s that came and shared their grief with us, her school friends, her ball team who had a very special day for her, her co-worker friends who didn’t have long enough with her, and people she may not have seen for awhile but who never forgot their friendship. There are no words to express our deep appreciation of each and everyone of you. Thank you to Lannins for all the help and understanding at such a difficult time, also to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 95 for the support and luncheon provided by the caring ladies. To each of our very special friends and family members that were there every minute with their continual love and support, thank you, we could have not gotten through without you. Andrew, Ben, Megs, Brown family, Hutcheson family, Vandusen family ~ Feel no guilt in laughter, she knows how much you care Feel no sorrow in a smile that she’s not here to share You cannot grieve forever, she would not want you to She’d hope that you would carry on, the way you always do So talk about the good times and the ways you showed you cared. Let memories surround you A word someone may say Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day That brings her back as clearly as though she were still here And fills you with the feelings that she is always near For if you keep these moments, you will never be apart And she will live forever locked safe within your heart.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Helen Marie (McGlade) O’Neill on Wednesday, February 26th, 2014 in her 74th year.

She was predeceased by her parents Clifford and Alice (Cawley) McGlade, sisters Irene Kearney, Anne McMunn and Judy Kelford; she will be remembered by brothers-in-law Blair McMunn and Bill Kelford. Helen spent the majority of her life helping others, from providing dignity and care to the residents of Ellenvale Acres Nursing Home to nurturing, caring and supporting many foster children. Her unshakable faith helped her through the past several months. She was strongly dedicated to her parish volunteering for spiritual and fundraising events as was a Past President of the St. Bridget CWL.

White Patrick White

Patrick White was a poet, a painter and a proud resident of Perth, Ontario. From a very young age, he knew he was destined to paint and write poetry. In an interview he was quoted as saying “My finest achievement, overall, and the one that means the most to me is that, after 40 years, I am still as intent on being the poet I set out to be as a young man.” That intent stayed with him until the very end. Patrick slipped away after a brave battle with cancer on March 1st, 2014. He was 65 years old. Patrick leaves behind his daughter, Jody (Terry), his son, Aaron (Becky), his mother, Mrs. Nina White and countless friends. A celebration of life is being planned and details will be provided in the very near future. In remembrance, contributions in memory of Patrick may be made to the charity of your choice. Arrangements are in the care of Blair & Son Funeral Home.

BARBER – In loving memory of our son, brother and uncle, Tony Donald, whom God took to be His Angel, 21 years ago tonight, March 10, 1993. We are thinking of you today “TONY”, But that is nothing new; We thought about you yesterday, And the day before that too. We will think of you tomorrow, And each day as we come and go; We will think of you forever, We love and miss you so. Your end came fast and sudden, No time to say good-bye; You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why. Dear God take him this message, To heaven up above; Tell him how much we miss him, And give him all our “love”. Each time we see your picture, You seem to smile and say; Don’t cry I’m only sleeping, We will meet again some day. Forever in our hearts, Love Mommy and Leo, Sammy, Amanda and Faith.

Fred Trafford March 8th, 2010 They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal, But neither time nor reason Will change the way I feel. No one knows the heartache, That lies behind my smile, No one knows how many times I have broken down and cried. I wish that I could tell you, So there won’t be any doubt, You are so wonderful to think of But so hard to be without. Four difficult years without you Dad, and I miss you more than words can say. Love Penny

McFARLANE, Linda Ann (nee Borthwick) – In loving memory of Linda who passed away March 5, 2013. Sleep on, dear Linda, take your rest, They miss you most who loved you best; Friends may be friends, if they be true, But we lost our best friend when we lost you. Always in our hearts Sister: Cheryl Butts and Peter Buker Niece: Ashley Butts Dear friend: Debbie Nagle

OPP statistics show distracted driving number one killer on roads News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Irresponsible driver behaviour has the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) concerned about the fate of many road users this year as officers prepare to launch their next campaign against distracted driving, from March 8 to 14. In 2013, distracted driving fatalities surpassed both impaired and speed related fatalities in fatal motor vehicle collisions investigated by the OPP. A total of 78 persons died in distracted driving related collisions compared to 57 impaired driving deaths and 44 speed related deaths last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you consider the overall impact of these 78 fatalities last year and the 325 other distracted driving victims who have died since 2010, the number of people these irresponsible drivers have had a profound and devastating impact on is in the thousands,â&#x20AC;? said OPP Deputy Commissioner Brad Blair, Commander of Traffic Safety and Operational Support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone, from the victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; families and friends to the police officers who attend these horrific collision scenes and have to notify next-of-kin, knows the emotional impact of one life lost to this senseless driving behavior trickles down to so many people who, sadly, through experience, know how badly this behaviour needs to stop,â&#x20AC;? he added. The OPP recognizes that the only way to stop people from dying in distracted driving related collisions is to raise awareness of how serious the problem is and to have everyone make a firm, lifelong commitment to helping the police and safety partners eliminate it altogether. According to the OPP, it can be done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over and above every driver pledging to never text or talk on the phone, pledge to be a good passenger and speak up if the driver in your car is using his/her phone or engaged in other forms of distraction. Pledge to regularly encourage your friends and family to not be distracted while driving,â&#x20AC;? said OPP Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander of the Highway Safety Division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though our campaign only runs one week, make this a yearround commitment because it is a fail proof way to help us eliminate the tragic deaths that occur every year because of distracted drivers,â&#x20AC;? added Bell. The OPP is reminding motorists that on March 18, the current distracted driving fine of $155 will jump to $280 (this includes the increased $225 fine plus a $50 victim fine surcharge and $5 court cost). The OPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s distracted driving campaign runs from Saturday, March 8 to Friday, March 14. During that time, the OPP will be doing its part to eliminate the threat of distracted driving through its own awareness raising efforts and focused enforcement of distracted driving laws throughout the province. The OPP is asking Ontarians to show their support during this important campaign. Go to the OPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook and/or Twitter pages and let them know how you plan on helping to eliminate distracted driving on Ontario roads. The OPP will highlight some of your entries in a campaign wrap-up news release following the campaign. Submitted by the Ontario Provincial Police.

OPP commissioner urges motorists to watch winter driving behaviour News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As Ontario continues to get battered by one of the worst winters in recent history, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Commissioner and OPP Provincial Commander of Traffic Safety and Operational Support (TSOS) are taking a hard line with the numerous drivers who, through poor driving behaviour, are causing a steady rash of collisions, some of which are jeopardizing the safety of OPP officers and other emergency personnel responding to collision scenes. Three OPP cruisers were struck by passing motorists back in January and in February, eight OPP cruisers were struck by passing motorists and two police officers received minor injuries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make it very clear: severe weather and poor driving conditions are not the main cause in the overwhelming number of collisions weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen these past several weeks. It is the way people are driving in these conditions that jeopardizes the safety of the motoring public and our officers. This irresponsible driving behaviour must stop,â&#x20AC;? says OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis.

The OPP has been inundated with calls for service during the numerous storms that have hit the province so far this winter. The OPP has responded to thousands of calls for service due to irresponsible driving in winter weather conditions but according to Deputy Commissioner Brad Blair, Provincial Commander of TSOS, this is unacceptable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no question that our harsh winter weather has made for some very treacherous driving conditions lately but as is the case every winter, it is the drivers who do not adjust their driving to the weather and driving conditions that are usually the ones involved in the collisions,â&#x20AC;? says Blair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the crashes being investigated by our officers involve drivers who either lost control because they did not slow down when they needed to or who ignored our warnings to avoid non-essential travel when the weather was particularly severe,â&#x20AC;? added Blair. According to Blair, when you get caught driving in particularly bad

weather, it is not enough to keep your speed below the posted limit - you need to slow right down. This is critical to maintaining control of your vehicle and avoiding a collision. Commissioner Lewis and Deputy Commissioner Blair are also stressing the importance of being highly visible while out on the road when visibility is poor and this means driving with the full set of headlights on. The OPP has received a number of complaints from people who continue to observe motorists driving in poor visibility with just their daytime running lights on. In heavy snowfall or blowing snow, these vehicles cannot be seen well by drivers and they are virtually invisible to those who approach from behind. The OPP is urging motorists to be prepared and pay careful attention during the winter months. Watch for emergency responders, slow down and move over if it is safe to do so in accordance with the law. Adjust your driving to the conditions and do your part to keep you, your passengers and all other road users safe. Submitted by the OPP

Smiths Falls 4 Kemptville 3 It wasn’t such an easy time with the Kemptville 73’s at home Friday night, in front of 795 fans, as the Bears pulled out a 4-3 win. After a scoreless first period, Smiths Falls fired three goals in the second from Momesso (power play), Taylor Henry and Chris King (power play).

Spartans claim LCIAA hockey cup Sports - Nothing in sport is ever given to you, it must be earned. The St. John Catholic High School Spartans girls hockey team learned this lesson the hard way over the last four years. For three years the group of seniors that leads this team has stood at the blue line and watched as another school has received their trophies and medals.

Andison, Ellard prepare for Team Canada trials Public Notice

Sports - Vincent Dufort of the McGill Redmen has been named most valuable player in the Quebec university men’s basketball circuit, which operates under the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec. Dufort, a native of Smiths Falls, and former SFDCI RedHawk was one of three Redmen among the five major awards dished out, based on voting conducted by the league’s five coaches. McGill freshman Dele Ogundokun of Hamilton, Ont., was selected rookie of the year in addition to making both, the allconference and all-rookie teams, while Redmen bench boss David DeAveiro received coach-of-the-year honours. McGill co-captain Simon Bibeau, a native of St. Bruno, Que., was named to the league’s second all-star squad and teammate François Bourque of Terrebonne, Que., joined Ogundokun on the all-rookie team. Rounding out the league’s major awards was Concordia’s Zach Brisebois, who was announced as defensive player of the year, Bishop’s senior Scott Ring, who received the leadership and community service award and Pierre Marion was voted official of the year. Dufort, a co-captain this season, becomes the first McGill player to merit MVP honours since Matt Thornhill in 2009-10. A 6-foot-4, 191-pound shooting guard, Dufort merited 31.2 minutes of playing time per game and was fifth among league scoring leaders and sixth in rebounding. The 21-year-old physical education junior averaged 13.4 points and 6.4 rebounds over his 16 games played. Dufort was third in defensive rebounding (5.0 per game), fourth in assists (56), fourth in steals (27) and fifth in blocked shots (12). He ranked third in three-point shooting (39.0 per cent), seventh in free-throw shooting (75.0 per cent) and had the third-best assist-to-turnover ratio (1.3). Dufort’s achievement, combined with McGill’s Mariam Sylla winning similar honours on the women’s side, marks the fifth time in Quebec league history that one school has swept both the men’s and women’s MVP awards in the same season. The only other Quebec institutions to accomplish the feat were Concordia (twice: 2011-12 and 1998-99) and Laval (twice: 2007-08 and 2000-01). Dufort’s father Dan Dufort is a teacher/coach at SFDCI. The senior Dufort said the family will be making the trip to Ottawa to watch their son play in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) tournament this weekend. McGill starts Friday night at 5:30 p.m. against the University of Victoria at the Canadian Tire Centre. Source: Earl Zukerman, McGill University Media

OFSAA hosts ousted by No. 1 seed Merivale By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Sports – On Tuesday, March 4, the Perth & District Collegiate Institute Blue Devils said so long to their high school season, as they lost a tough 4942 game to number one seeded Merivale High School, at the OFSAA championships. Playing in front of an enthusiastic home crowd at PDCI, the Blue Devils held a big 14-9 lead at the end of the first quarter but only scored two points in the second. By the third quarter, Merivale had expanded its lead to 39-27. Despite a 15-point fourth quarter, the local boys couldn’t recapture the lead. Perth’s top player was Isaac Matthews-Hannah who hit for 19 points to

lead the way. Merivale was paced by Umed Hyderi with 13 points. Coach Kevin Bellamy said he was more than pleased with the effort and determination shown by his team, as they battled a tough opponent by sticking to a strong defensive game plan. Matthews-Hannah nailed an amazing six treys for 19 points. The gym was packed with noisy supporters who were treated to an excellent match that was tense and exciting right up to the final buzzer. On Monday, March 3, PDCI opened the day with a 60-35 loss to St. Francis Phoenix of St. Catharines. Despite the loss, the boys played a tough defensive game where they held their opponents to a five-point lead at one point in the first

quarter. A towering forward lineup with some aggressive speed and chippy play by the Phoenix, saw that St. Catharines lead expand throughout the second half. PDCI was led by team captain Jon Tysick, Matthews-Hannah and Luke Rawling, all with seven points. In PDCI’s second game of the day, they posted an inspired comeback to defeat Timmins 43-39 at PDCI. Tysick led the way with 22 points. Ben Joror led Timmins with 13 points. The Devils overcame an eight-point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter to earn this thrilling victory. Further results will be available next week. The finals were scheduled for Wednesday at PDCI.

Never quit, never give up Sports - Perth and District Collegiate Institute (PDCI) hosted the 2014 OFSAA (Ontario Federation of School Athletic Association) “AA” Boys Basketball Championships this week, March 3 to 5. Players and coaches were welcomed during a special ceremony in the PDCI auditorium on Sunday, March 2, which included advice from Carleton University men’s basketball head coach Dave Smart and words of encouragement from Upper Canada District School Board director David Thomas.

Shattering the glass ceiling The â&#x20AC;&#x153;glass ceilingâ&#x20AC;? expression appeared towards the end of the 1970s and refers to the obstacles that women must surmount in order to reach the higher levels of professional hierarchies. Even though women in the West are more highly educated and qualified than ever before, we are still quite far from the principal of equal work for equal pay. That is especially the case in other parts of the world. But we mustnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t despair. We just

have to look back at the progress made in the last decades and redouble efforts to overcome the discrimination and stereotyping in the workplace that still cast a shadow over many women. We must stop believing that only men can embody competitiveness, ambition, charisma, combativeness, power, and authority. We must see that women bring these qualities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and more â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to the workplace in a different, equally effective way. We should look at how the glass ceiling hin-

Women should take heart that starting a family doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily mean that they have to sacrifice their other dreams. Rallying their partners and children to the quest for equality and power-sharing is certainly the best way to change attitudes and ensure that one day the glass ceiling is shattered.

The goal is to see more women in management and decisionmaking jobs.

ders their progress and reinforces a negative image of women. We should also ask ourselves if the glass ceiling is maintained by choice or unconsciously, and what we can do to change those attitudes. We should ask ourselves why it is that many women end up in careers with only modest prospects and salaries, out of range of management roles and decision-making posts. Too many companies remain insensitive to the inner conflict many working women live, espe-

When it seems as though there aren’t enough hours in the day, it can be difficult for working mothers to find time to catch their breath and enjoy life. The family is one area where the majority of women rarely compromise. While some find it difficult to be separated from their little ones, others need to be part of the workforce in order to flourish. This is where a work-family conflict can arise. Even though they work as hard as everyone else, some working mothers often have the impression that they’re not able to produce as much as their childless colleagues. Swamped by their workloads, others feel that they are always neglecting their family responsibilities. With guilt hovering in the background, women tend to waver between the two worlds, always in search of the right balance. Although a woman might often have the impression of being overwhelmed, all she has to do is look around to realize that this is the reality for thousands of other families. Of course, the grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence, but few mothers would truly want to change their lives. Above all, the key to successfully reconciling work-family responsibilities lies in organization, good time management skills, and the setting of priorities. Give yourself some leeway in case of unforeseen events. After a hectic week, cut back on housework and organize a family outing instead. Ask your partner to give you a hand. Suggest to your employer that you could work from home when your children are sick or on vaca-

International Women’s Week MARCH 2 - 8, 2014

Why you should use a Realtor to sell your home Many people who try to sell their own home end up using a REALTOR® in the end anyway. Before anybody decides to fly solo through this complex, time consuming and financially perilous process, they should consider these questions. Will you really “save” the real estate commission? When buyers see a home for sale ‘by the owner’, they see a bargain. They imagine the REALTOR®’s fee going into their pocket, not yours.

How many potential buyers will you reach? Selling a home takes more than just hanging a “For Sale” sign. How will you promote your home? Will you write your own ads? How will you use the Internet? MLS® and the corresponding web site www.REALTOR.ca have changed the way people search for homes, and it’s hard to court buyers without it. Do you have the time? Promoting a home is a full time job, and you

may already have one. Will you be able to take calls at any time? How about screening the callers to figure out if they’re suitable candidates? Not everybody who calls is even suitable to walk through your home, but how do you tell? Do you know the market well enough to get the most for your home? Lacking years of experience, the average do-ityourselfer is merely guessing at their listing price. Often they set the price too low and miss out on

thousands of dollars, or they price their home too high and drive away willing buyers. Do you have the negotiation skills to keep a deal on track? When an offer comes in, emotions can run high with so much money on the line. This is why direct seller-to-buyer deals often end in disaster. REALTORS® keep it professional and are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with buyers

Rather than the eye of newt and bat whiskers found in a traditional witches’ brew, a new sorceress in Merrickville is cooking up a different combination using fragrant oils and soy wax. Lianne Kulp-Aultman is the face behind Wick Witch Candle Co., which opened a new location last summer in the heart of Merrickville within the historic Aaron Merrick building at 108 St. Lawrence Street. The block also houses the Yellow Canoe Café, Mirick’s Landing Country Store and Unraveled. Wick Witch Candle Co. specializes in producing small batches of hand-poured 100 per cent all natural soy wax candles whose fragrant concoctions are an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional candles, right down to the stylish reusable containers. A creative soul who enjoys refinishing antique furniture and thrift shopping, this business seems like anything but a job to Kulp-Aultman. “It’s arts and crafts every day for work and that’s not work at all,” she commented. No stranger to Merrickville, having called it home a few years back, Kulp-Aultman jumped at the chance to return. “This space became available and I thought it would be a great opportunity to have a lot more exposure and traffic,” she said during a recent interview. “The locals in Perth were so supportive but I was missing out on tourist traffic from the main streets. It was too secluded a location.” And she has been welcomed back with open arms. “The reception has been good so far. Word is getting out and it’s still pretty new, but all of the

International Women’s Week MARCH 2 - 8, 2014

A woman’s life over the decades A woman’s busy life can make her feel as though she’s caught up in turbulent waters, especially when she reaches another milestone birthday. From time to time she may feel the need to make sure she’s still heading in the right direction and that her values and objectives are still in line with her life goals. As she goes through her twenties, she’s travelling a highway with no speed limit. Life’s great projects are taking shape — finishing school, career plans, travelling, adventure, romantic encounters. This is the decade for discovering the world and taking the first steps towards independence. Everything is possible at the dawn of adult life. Then comes the thirties and maturity. Her ideas and opinions become more defined. A young woman becomes surer of the road she wants to take. She might become a mother. She might make her career her priority. Either way, she won’t let her growing responsibilities

compromise who she is. Her destiny is beginning to become clearer. In the forties, the middle of life, comes a certain sense of urgency to live life to the fullest and push the boundaries. This is often the time to leave a failing marriage and start again, to transform life in some way, on a personal as much as a professional level. A woman who has always put the well-being of her family in the forefront suddenly feels the need to make more time for herself. In a way, it is a good thing that her life forces her to regularly review the path ahead. It is a great way of ensuring that her internal GPS is still pointing in the right direction!

ith 23 years in practice, being a chiropractor is not just a job for me it’s my calling, my passion. I have lived it - I was a very sick kid, suffering from asthma, ecxema and allergies. I lived life going from one drug to the next. Then, at the age of 11, my mom brought me to a chiropractor and my life began to change. I experienced first hand healing from the ‘inside out’. I learned that health does not come in a bottle. All those drugs were never going to return my health to me. As I grew up receiving chiropractic care my immune system continued to get stronger and I got healthier and hence, why I chose to pay it forward by becoming a chiropractor and teaching others the power of the body to heal from the inside out. To help my community get healthy and stay healthy. To live out their God given

potential. I am married to my best friend and business partner Dr Mark Herman and we have 2 healthy teen age girls. For us, health is not simply a destination you ‘get to’ – it is an ongoing journey. It’s eating right, doing activities we love (like hiking, kayaking, running!), being grounded in our faith and keeping the nerve system free of interference so the body can express its full potential. Chiropractic is a lifestyle focused on creating health, not on treating disease. We run a family based practice taking care of newborn babies, children, seniors and local top athletes! We continue to attend postgraduate seminars to constantly keep up to date with the latest techniques and research. It is our vision to put Mississippi Mills on the map as one of the world’s largest centurian towns!

From elderly people seeking the confidence and strength needed to perform daily activities to recent retirees looking to train for better health. Inevitably, as we advance in years, there is a natural decline in many of our physiological functions. Natatia’s goal is to help our community reduce this decline. The abilities to balance, react, move with agility, accelerate, and decelerate are vital components of daily living and fall prevention. These abilities will serve as key elements in an older adult fitness program and help provide them with greater confidence and abilities for years to come.

with handmade things that she would love to have in her own home. “Many of the makers are moms like me,” she said. “Every item has a story behind it of where it came from and the person who made it.” There’s a bit of a story behind the store’s name as well. Arbour has a background in advertising and marketing, and wanted to create a name that was inviting, bright and fun. “I’ve always loved the word ‘hello,’” she said. “It’s obviously a very inviting word, but I always wanted something really catchy.” She chose “yellow” because it fit the bill: it’s a bright, happy and creative colour and, when paired with the word “hello,” it became a catchy and memorable name: Hello Yellow. A crafter herself, Arbour created one of the focal pieces in her store. Mounted on the front of the shop’s counter is a large collage of buttons, which she painted white and placed behind glass. The word “hello”, written in her logo’s script, has been

Business – Yellow is a colour that calls to mind sunshine, daffodils, springtime and Almonte residents can now associate the colour with a Mill Street store. Hello Yellow opened last July and is a general gift store offering everything from jewelry and candles to printed scarves and home décor items - but there’s a difference between this gift shop and all the other similar shops on Mill Street: all of the products available at Hello Yellow are made in North America. “It’s really important to me to support local entrepreneurs like myself,” said Emily Arbour, the store’s owner. Many of the products featured in the store come from the Ottawa Valley, Ottawa and Montreal, though some of the items are from Vancouver or small time companies in the United States. Arbour, 34, used to own Blackbird, another gift shop just up the street from her current store. She owned Blackbird for five years before passing it onto its current owner so she could focus on her two small children, Clementine, 4, and Griffin, 2. After a couple of years off, Arbour started to think about starting up another store. “I’ve always really liked crafting and handmade things,” she said, “and I always wanted to have a shop that was dedicated to handmade products.” So last May she started the process of creating Hello Yellow in an available space where the travel agency used was housed at 72 Mill Street. She painted the interior with clean neutrals and filled it

Arbour has been using social media as a way to market her store, and said she has been very happy with the response. She said she is always looking for new products to carry and urges crafters who think their items would be a good fit to email her a few photos and a bit of information to shop@hello-yellow.ca. More information about the store can be found at their Facebook page or by visiting www.helloyellow.ca. R0012571052/0306

painted on the front, encompassing her store’s theme perfectly. It’s a showcase for beautiful, original handcrafted items. Arbour is also one of the brains behind the Handmade Harvest, which is held twice a year in Almonte to celebrate local emerging crafters. Another hat she wears is her involvement in Small Town Thinking – a business that does community building activities and produces the locally themed shirts called Almontees (www.almontetee.com).

WELL program helps women entrepreneurs in Lanark and North Leeds By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

The idea for an International Women’s Day arose around the turn of the 20th century out of a long-standing movement for women to participate equally in society.

in the program,” he said. Being a part of the WELL program can have many advantages: members have access to business mentors and coaches as well as workshops and training sessions to improve skills. The workshops will be tailored to the specific needs of the program’s members. “If we find there is a need for one (workshop) more than another, we’ll set something up,” said Jackson. The workshops will focus on technical skills and problems but will be as specific as possible; bookkeeping, marketing and understanding financial statements are just some of the topics available. Members of the program can be mentors, mentees or both, said Jackson. Mentors will ideally be successful, knowledgeable and skilled in one or many aspects of entrepreneurship. Mentors and mentees will be matched up based on needs, then the two will meet up on an agreed upon schedule, usually for one or two hours per month. There is no deadline to apply to be a member of the program, and you do not need to have a business loan either. Most women entrepreneurs are welcome, said Jackson. Contact Kyle Jackson of the Valley Heartland CFDC at Kyle.Jackson@valleycfdc.com or call 613-283-7002 ext. 110 for more information about the WELL program.

The first International Women’s Day was observed on March 19, 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. That day, more than one million women and men showed their support by participating in public events. Between 1913 and 1917, women in Russia and elsewhere in Europe began to celebrate the day as well. Over time, International Women’s Day has grown to become a global day of recognition and celebration. The theme was expanded U by the United Nations in 1975 with the International Women’s ear. By 1977, the United Nations had adopted a resolution (link Year. resolutio to resolution?) designating March 8 as International Women’s Day. Inte Today, International Women’s Day is a national holiday in many countrie and celebrated in many more.

EMC News – Local women have a great opportunity to be entrepreneurs with a new pilot program from Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC). Women Entrepreneurs in Lanark and North Leeds (WELL) is one of three programs the corporation started last year, and aims to help local businesswomen flourish in the community. Valley Heartland CFDC is a corporation that aims to develop communities, largely through providing business loans. The WELL program, explained Valley Heartland CFDC executive director Susan Fournier, is to help small home-based businesses grow into larger businesses through microloans, or to help successful entrepreneurs expand their existing businesses with larger loans. Members of the WELL program will also have access to business mentors, coaches and workshops. “All of our pilot programs are really about encouraging people to take that next step,” said Fournier. Kyle Jackson, Valley Heartland’s business development co-ordinator, explained that almost anyone in the area can apply to be part of the WELL program. “If you’re a woman and you own a business, you can pretty much be sure that you can take part

International Women’s Week MARCH 2 - 8, 2014 Working women: finding new paths!

Photo by LAURIE WEIR

Business – There is a new shop at 87 Gore St. in Perth that is housing some unique finds. Homing Instinct opened this month by designer Cheryl Matson and her friend Janina Fisher. Inside, you’ll find antiques, collectibles, vintage pieces and a whole lot more. “It’s a little bit of elegant and a whole lot of everything,” said Fisher. “Like feathers for your nest.”

Choosing a profession is, first and foremost, an expression of one’s personality. This choice should be made according to personal tastes and aptitudes; why blindly follow the beaten path if something else appeals to you? After all, you’ll spend a large part of your life in the workforce, so you’re much better off if you can live out your passions in your work. One way to put an end to job discrimination is to provide women with a range of career choices that allow for flexible working conditions and a way to reintegrate after having children. Making such changes may seem threatening, but that’s a normal reaction when entrenched attitudes are overturned. It is not so long ago that medicine and engineering were all-male preserves, where the “invasion” of women was derided. In their own ways and in their own eras, women such as Elizabeth Blackwell, Irma Levasseur, and Lucille Teasdale defied prejudice to practice medicine in more than just subordinate roles. These days, the healthcare system couldn’t do without women. Any progress is a step forward for women and enriches those sectors which welcome these intrepid heroines. And the traditionally female-dominated sectors are still well populated by women who want to make use of their desire to care for, educate, and help others. Changing the rules of the game was certainly overdue. There is no good reason why more women shouldn’t migrate towards mechanics, carpentry, forestry, military service, or road transportation. Every trade has its value, and everyone has their own likes and dislikes. It’s perfectly legitimate to want your livelihood to be a source of accomplishment, pride, and personal satisfaction.

Women today, how their role has changed

Catherine Ellis and her team of professionals have been practicing accounting in North Grenville for over 12 years. In a world where the rhyme and reason of accounting often just does not make sense to the business owner, BCD takes the time (actually, it is the corporate mandate), to teach, to strengthen and give support so that owners can concentrate on what they do best, knowing that their accounting is well taken care of. Just in time for tax season, this year, in addition to the already full slate of services they provide, BCD has now added income tax preparation. Whether it is day-to-day accounting, business and finance training and seminars, audits, income tax prep, BCD Accounting comes highly recommended. Just see what one client has to say: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Catherine Ellis and her company (BCD ACCOUNTING) has been a lifesaver to me from the very first interactionâ&#x20AC;Ś I was 100% taught how to use my QuickBooksâ&#x20AC;Ś how to handle payroll and how to keep the business running smoothly and well organized by this company. I know that all my questions and confusions related to my Entries into the QuickBooks Program will be solved with my complete satisfaction.

In the past, women were often referred to as the weaker sex. They were seen as overly emotional and were confined to their role as mistresses of the home, in charge of the childrearing and housekeeping but excluded from any real decision making. But today, the modern woman occupies many roles, more than could ever be counted on one hand â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she is a mother, friend, lover, partner, confidante, employee, boss, colleague, volunteer, and the list goes on. Of course, with all that to manage, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all smooth sailing in a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world. There are plenty of hurdles to jump every day: reconciling work-life balance; menstruation, pregnancy, nursing, and menopause; pressure to be skinny and free of body hair; competent in running a house; not to mention being there for her loved ones and searching for lost mittens. Yet being a woman also has its share of privileges and small pleasures that shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be forgotten. Here are just a few: â&#x20AC;˘ Enjoying her femininity and sensuality: wearing stiletto heels, silky outfits, and sexy underwear; being proud of her curves and knowing how to show them off to advantage. â&#x20AC;˘ Making the most of her beauty: trying out new looks with makeup and jewellery; treating herself to manicures and beauty treatments; adorning herself with sequins; and raving over a new shampoo that promises to make her hair even more beautiful, voluminous, and shiny. â&#x20AC;˘ Playing at being a lady: having doors opened for her; being carried across the threshold by her husband on her wedding day; sitting on his shoulders to be able to see a live show; curling up

MARCH 2 - 8, 2014 Infertility and motherhood, conceiving the inconceivable baby arrives. The same goes for adoption. Women who have adopted are usually comfortable describing the experience as fulfilling ; it is often a matter of shifting one’s expectations. Adoption remains a first choice for many women, even among those capable of bearing children, despite the demands of the adoption process. Their desire is to offer a deprived child a stable life and a loving family. Who said that having a family was like a fairy tale? Just as the swallow makes her nest, it’s usually the mother who builds the spirit of a family, one twig at a time. After the miracle of life, comes the miracle of love.

Having grown up in Lanark County, as well as being one of the few women selling vehicles in the automotive industry, taking care of my customers during and after their vehicle purchase is my up-most priority. At Mike Fair’s, we treat our customers like family and not just like a number. As a full line dealership, we offer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillacs with a wide selection of models and options, to suite your driving needs. I invite you to call, email tanyas@mikefairchevcadilac.com, or drop by in person to arrange for a test drive and review the numerous lease and purchase options available to you. – Tanya

Motherhood, no matter how it comes about, is a richly emotional experience in a woman’s life.

NANCY WILLOUGHBY R0012575219

Motherhood represents an important step in the lives of many women. Sometimes becoming a mother is part of a predetermined personal path. Sometimes it comes as a shock that only subsides with the birth of the child. Sometimes, a woman’s dream of starting a family fades when fertility challenges arise. Medical procedures such as artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization can lend a helping hand to Mother Nature, allowing more women to experience the unique adventure of motherhood. It goes without saying that these techniques are not very romantic, but many women are ready to forego the frills in order to hold a little one in their arms. Everything else is forgotten as soon as the longed for

Other women combine discretion and visibility with skill. Some first ladies leave their personal stamp on their country’s political history, sometimes going so far as to eclipse the popularity of their famous politician husbands. The face of politics is more feminine than it would first appear. So our congratulations should go to those who dare to contribute to our society’s advancement in this way.

encouraging to see that the role played by women is gradually moving them off the back benches. Influential women lead organizations of all types and occupy key political posts, such as provincial premier. Women are also parliamentary assistants, advisors, managers, and strategists; hopefully, some of them will dare to make the leap to become members of parliament, cabinet ministers, and, one day, prime ministers.

wishing to enter politics to build a reputation and a public image. It is difficult to obtain the support of a political party; difficult to access networks and the necessary financing to support their work and electoral campaigns; and difficult to win over voters. In many areas of the world, gender prejudice adds to the other obstacles that keep women in the minority in the upper levels of many different sectors, such as post-secondary education, business, and senior management.

Around the world, there are far fewer women than men who are actively involved in politics. Among the countries where women predominate, Rwanda is at the top of the list! Indeed, the radical reworking of electoral and parliamentary processes remains a primary way to promote sexual equality in leadership roles. It is the case both here and elsewhere that because women still assume most family and household responsibilities, their professional and financial situations are generally weaker. That makes it difficult for women

Celebrating women and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history only has to think of Hillary Clinton, whose role at the heart of the American government made her one of the most powerful women in the world, or of Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany. However, we still have a long way to go. Statistics published by the UN remind us that 70 percent of women around the world are subjected to physical or sexual violence at least once in their lives, and that 603 million women live in countries where domestic violence is not considered to be a crime.

Since 1977, International Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day has been held annually on March 8. Coordinated by the United Nations, this event is an opportunity to review past battles and achievements, while also looking to the future. Americans were the first to celebrate women and their contributions to history. In 1909, the Socialist Party of America dedicated February 28 to this cause. The tradition continued for several years before disappearing. A few years later, Europeans also advocated activities aimed at highlighting the importance of women in society. In 1911, more than a million people emphasized the point by taking part in a public demonstration that was held simultaneously in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland. Since then, the role of women in society has greatly evolved. Starting in 1917, women in different regions across Canada gradually won the right to vote. The American constitution was amended to enfranchise women in 1920. Since then, many women have occupied key political positions. One
