Home and Living Show promises to entertain the entire family By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - Just as hockey season winds down, the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre will be transformed into a spring venue to host the third annual Home and Living Show opening on May 3 at 10 a.m. “There are hockey games on until April 27, then that night we’ll remove the ice, and work through the night so that on the 28th the floor will be clear for the home show to start setting up,” said Gary Bisonette, the town’s facilities superintendent. This year the home show will showcase more than 50 vendors some of them new to the event, according to Dawn Quinn, town councillor and show organizer. “We have real estate agents, home re-modelers and renovators, landscapers, banks, furnace and air

conditioning vendors, boats, antiques, pool and hot tubs, food vendors, artisans, computers it’s quite a mix,” said Quinn. This year there’s also going to be bridal show on the Sunday afternoon starting at 1 p.m. put on by Joanna Carroll-Jones from 2 Crazy Ladies. “I’m going to start with a bridal show, and move on to special occasions prom wear, which will feature the winners of the design your own prom dress contest, and then a spring fashion show featuring some consignment, some new and outfits made by me,” said Carroll-Jones. A sit-down high tea will also be served on the Sunday afternoon alongside the bridal show. “We’ll do a kind of high tea, with watercress sandwiches, scones, jam and such,” said Tony See HOME SHOW page SF3

Community - Sometimes Plan A doesn’t quite pan out and Plan B becomes the best alternative. That’s pretty much where the Hub is focused right now. “We had to turn away from seeking full assistance from municipalities, and refocus our efforts,” said Laurie Hudson-Craig, co-chair of the Hub board. The new board has restructured the Hub’s revenue stream by introducing memberships and partnering with private and public institutions. “We’re introducing a Hub membership that gives participants the right to vote at the annual general meeting and eligibility to apply for a position on the board. It also gives participants privileged pricing on our regular programs,” said Chris Evoy, board director. The new membership program went into effect April 11. “If you purchase a membership you automatically get reduced costs on our swim programs,” explained HudsonCraig. In the meantime the Hub is posting its new schedule as of April 14 and will be offering courses throughout the month of May. The National Lifeguard Service courses will run on the first and last weekends of May and the Lifesaving Standard First Aid CPR C and AED course will run on May 10. The Lifeguard courses will be taught by Barbara Richmire who may be familiar to pool users already. “I am certified as a national lifeguard instructor and examiner,” said Richmire, who says the standards have recently changed and become much more rigorous including timed distance swims and timed rescues. The courses are designed to train participants not only to respond to emergencies but also to recognize dangerous environments or behaviours so they can prevent accidents, according to Richmire. Courses like that will continue to be offered at the Hub pool

to generate revenue and traffic. Meanwhile the Hub has managed to raise close to $23,000 last month. “And that’s just within the greater community,” said Hudson-Craig. The new board now consists of Hudson-Craig, Evoy, Kathy Merkley as treasurer/co-chair and Bonnie Parks-Sutton as director. This week has seen the Hub interviewing applicants for board membership and they’re all thrilled with the volunteer turnout. They’re also actively working on further developing the Hub’s three pillars - Recreation, Athletics and Arts. For now the pool remains the focus of recreation though a gym is still in the works; on the Athletics side the Hub has already got the Special Olympics athletes training at the pool as well as competitive swimmers from Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute. “On the arts side, we do have someone coming in to help us design appropriate programs,” said Hudson-Craig. Right now the Hub is looking into before- and after-school programs but those will depend on transportation, which has yet to be firmed up. “We’re partnering with Parrot Partner for birthday packages and that should be finalized within the next two weeks,” said Hudson-Craig. They’re also putting together full-day summer camp programs in partnership with Sunny Shenanigans Puppeteer and Parrot Partner. Those plans will be finalized in the coming month so that information can be disseminated through the schools, according to Hudson-Craig. “We’ve launched partnerships with local schools to teach children how to swim, or to improve their skills, and so far we have four schools on board - St. Luke, St. James, Lombardy Public School and Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute,” continued Hudson-Craig.

Tax rates, ratios adopted for 2014 by Lanark County council

Resolution supports Kemptville Campus Council has passed a resolution that strongly supports a two-year moratorium on the closure of the Kemptville College campus, which would allow the school to accept students in the fall 2014 semester. The move comes following the announcement that the University of Guelph would be closing this satellite campus along with one at Alfred, Ontario. The resolution also urges the province to work with local stakeholders to develop a new model to operate the Kemptville campus to ensure its sustainability and viability in eastern Ontario. It notes Premier Kathleen Wynne, in her capacity as Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, challenged the industry last autumn to

Maple production approved in community forest Council has approved a proposal seeking commercial use of a maple stand for sugar bush operations within a community forest. After a public tender the contract agreement will be for 10 years with two five-year options to extend. Over the past several years, the community forest working group has developed a commercial use policy that will now allow it to respond to such requests. Brian Anderson, the county’s contracted forester from Mississippi Valley Conservation, compared maple syrup production and traditional timber production as uses of the forest and identified both options as acceptable with comparable values. It is also in keeping with the county’s brand as “Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario.� The identified portion of forest in Lanark Highlands has about 75 acres proposed for maple production. Forest management will continue during the agreement to ensure a safe and healthy managed forest.

Parameters for 2014 Renovate Lanark set Council has approved the parameters for Renovate Lanark 2014, which is part of the Investment in Affordable Housing program funded by the federal and provincial governments up to 2015. Funding for this year amounts to $238,920, which is divided between three components: homeownership, rent supplement and renovations. The goal is to assist low-income homeowners to remain in their homes and, in some cases, to improve their energy efficiency. Provincial guidelines set maximum limits for house price and household income, and the local service managers, such as Lanark County, can determine local limits up to that maximum. This year’s parameters are set at $60,000 for the homeownership component, $134,020 for Renovate Lanark and $44,900 for rent supplement. The maximum income limit for the Renovate Lanark program remains at $50,000, and the maximum house value, which is based on the average resale price for the area as adjusted quarterly, is $259,777. Additional funding was allocated to the Renovate program to allow more low-income residents to remain in their homes. The funds provided to date for Renovate Lanark have assisted 33 people at an average loan of $6,666. Youth centre update received Councillors received a report updating them on the activities of youth centres in Almonte, Carleton Place, Lanark Highlands, Perth and Smiths Falls as a follow-up for funding provided by the county in 2013. Children’s Services manager Mary Lou White noted the county has funded the coalition of youth centres for more than 10 years, initially through the National Child Benefit Supplement Reinvestment Program, and then through the municipal levy when the program ended. The funding supports the executive director positions at the centre, allowing

Babies should start seeing dentist by age one your arms while the dentist or dental hygienist has a look in his or her mouth. They will lift up the lip to check the front teeth and look for any signs of decay. This is a great time to ask any questions you may have, such as how and when to clean baby’s mouth, what are tooth-friendly snacks, and talk about fluoride. They may discuss how to reduce the risk of decay for your baby and, if needed, provide a quick and easy fluoride varnish. Tooth decay is the second most common childhood disease. Seeking dental care early can prevent this problem and give your child a lifetime of healthy smiles. Call your dental provider today to book that first appointment.

Lifestyle – Happy first birthday, baby! Who’s your dentist? Hmmm‌maybe not the top thing on a one-yearold’s mind, but did you know that babies should see a dental health professional by age one? The Canadian Dental Association recommends that all children see a dental health professional by age one. This helps to spot potential problems early when treatment is easier. Baby teeth can decay quickly, and are very important for a child’s speech and nutrition. This first dental appointment can seem overwhelming to parents, especially if they have any anxiety surrounding the issue themselves. Having your little one see a dental professional early helps to develop a worry-free dental relationship, and you save money. What can you expect at that first appointment? Baby will most likely be in

Services and programs provided by the youth centres include homework, life skills, culture and recreation, social networking, nutrition/cooking and wellness. The centres work together on funding proposals, advocacy, planning, policies and procedures.

double its growth rate and create 120,000 new jobs by 2020. It identifies the two campuses as outstanding post-secondary schools that have delivered specialized and high-quality programs to generations of students and says the future success of the region’s agri-food industry depends on continuing this strong partnership. It adds Kemptville campus ensures the industry has access to the knowledge, research and innovation that are critical for Ontario to remain competitive in this rapidly changing sector. “Agriculture is still a major economic driver in Lanark County,� said warden Richard Kidd (Beckwith reeve). “The loss of Kemptville College would eliminate an opportunity for local youth to be exposed to innovative new technology in the industry. This is why we’re strongly urging the province to implement a twoyear moratorium.� The resolution is being widely circulated.

News – The following are highlights from the regular Lanark County council meeting held Wednesday, April 9 at the county building in Perth. Council has approved bylaws setting the 2014 levy amounts to be collected from ratepayers, as well as tax ratios and tax-capping provisions. In November, council passed its budget with a levy of almost $30 million to be collected through the towns and townships. The county residential tax rate for 2014 is lower than the previous year, and amounts to $392 per $100,000 of assessment. “Average taxpayers will have a 4.3 per cent phase increase on their property reassessment, but the tax rate is lower by the same amount, which results in a zero per cent tax increase. They will pay the same amount they paid to the county in 2013,� explained Kurt Greaves, chief administrative officer/treasurer. Once the tax levy is established, council sets tax ratios, which distribute taxes between the various classes (e.g. industrial, commercial, residential). The county portion is only one of three components on the tax bill, with the local municipality and education portion making up the balance.

Former finance minister Irish Ambassador recounts rugby Jim Flaherty dead at 64 and beer with his friend, Flaherty By SAM COOLEY

By SAM COOLEY

News – Jim Flaherty is dead. The former Canadian finance minister died April 10, at his home in Ottawa. Less than a month ago, on March 18, he stepped down as Canada’s Minister of Finance, saying he was planning on returning to the private sector. In a statement in March, Flaherty said he was not stepping down due to health reasons. But last year Flaherty disclosed to The Globe and Mail that he was battling a rare skin condition. The condition is called bullous pemphigoid, which causes rashes in certain parts of the body, and it is quite rare and usually only affects people over the age of 60. It is unknown if this autoimmune disease, or the steroid medication Flaherty was taking for it, had anything to do with his death. CBC reported that a friend of Flaherty’s says that he died of a massive heart attack. In a phone interview, Scott Reid, MP of Lanark-FrontenacLennox and Addington, said he learned the news of Flaherty’s death when he was “jumped by a bunch of reporters� who were asking how he felt about Flaherty’s death. Reid put two and two together when he looked through the windows into the House of Commons and could see that it was suspended. He recounts the last time he saw Flaherty was just a normal day. “It was very unspectacular. His office was down the hall and around the corner from mine. You would just see him, say ‘hi,’ and not think anything of it,� he said. Reid said he thinks Flaherty’s

News – Ireland’s Ambassador to Canada, Dr. Ray Bassett, says the late finance minister Jim Flaherty was the most relaxed he’d seen him in a long time. The two got together at P.J. O’Brien’s in downtown Toronto for a couple pints while watching the Ireland vs. France rugby match on March 15. Three days later, Flaherty resigned. “He didn’t tell me he was resigning,� says Bassett in a phone interview, “but I should’ve seen at the time that he was going to resign.� Bassett regarded Flaherty as a personal friend and mentor, and said he was a “very, very warm human being.� He says Flaherty, over the past four years, was the person who helped him the most with his job as Ambassador in Canada. Bassett says he tried calling Flaherty the morning he died. The two had met on several occasions in March, and Flaherty’s death was a shock for him. “I thought he wasn’t in great shape,� recalls Bassett, “I met him at an event in early March File photo

Former Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty passed away at the age of 64 on April 10. death was not the result of a lingering illness. Gordon O’Connor, MP of Carleton-Mississippi Mills, says Flaherty’s death is a great loss to parliament. “He’s a charming man and he’s liked by everybody,� O’Connor said. O’Connor spoke of Flaherty’s success as a finance minister throughout the

recession in 2009. “He got us out,� says O’Connor, “Flaherty left finances in good condition and I expect we’ll be in surplus into the future.� O’Conner added that, “People from both (political) sides started talking about him, remembering the good things. He’s been a spectacular finance minister.�

Many Canadians can recall Jim Flaherty standing in public wearing his characteristic green tie. He had a strong interest in his Irish heritage. Bassett says before he died, Flaherty discovered some of his Irish ancestors were buried on Partridge Island, N.B. The island, now a historic site, has several mass graves. Flaherty, according to Bassett, found out some of his bloodline ended up buried there. As for the former finance ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent death, the somber Irish Ambassador said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost our best political friend in Canada.â&#x20AC;?

Basset says Harper regarded him as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Encyclopedia of Ireland.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Flaherty was a man who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want policy or politics to get too heated, says Bassett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But he could fight hard,â&#x20AC;? recalls Bassett, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d often diffuse the situation with a joke and refuse to let it get too personal.â&#x20AC;?

Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: Leading up to the June 13 Relay for Life in Smiths Falls, we will be highlighting the stories of some of the team members, activities and events scheduled to take place in a series of articles. Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ask Terry Cullen why she volunteers at the Relay For Life (RFL) in Smiths Falls and she immediately makes mention of her mother who lost her battle with cancer in May 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Watching someone go through this roller coaster type of journey can provoke many emotions, certainly for the person living with cancer, and also for those who love them and take care of them,â&#x20AC;? the Kemptville resident shares. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At times, I stood by feeling helpless about my momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation, and I knew I had to do something so others like my daughter wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go through what I have.â&#x20AC;? Cullen says she took her cue from her mother in learning everything she could about the disease â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as there are more than 200 types of cancer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and how to help find a cure and cancer prevention. This is what led her to getting involved with the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only did the CCS give me the information I was looking for, it also gave me the tools to fight back and showed me how they support research and, for that, I am grateful,â&#x20AC;? she remarks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I joined the RFL steering committee as the team recruitment chair, I take two hours in April to help sell daffodil pins and I was lucky enough to be a facilitator of the Living Well Beyond Cancer program provided by CCS.â&#x20AC;? RFL is an inspirational, non-competitive, 12-hour overnight fundraising event that brings the community together to celebrate life and fight cancer. All proceeds raised from the event go to the CCS to assist with cancer research and support the many programs that the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Leeds, Grenville and Lanark community office offers to those who have cancer, cancer survivors and caregivers. As with most events, the RFL in Smiths Falls would not take place without Cullen and the many other dedicated volunteers.

Connected to your community

Hospice palliative care services in Lanark County join forces News – Under a recent agreement signed by the boards of Dignity House Hospice (DHH) and Community Home Support Lanark County (CHSLC) the DHH Day Hospice will become part of the hospice palliative care services managed by CHSLC. The other services currently managed by CHSLC are the Volunteer Hospice Visiting Service and

Bereavement Service. DHH came on the scene in 2008 as an incorporated, registered charity with a goal of establishing a residential hospice in this area to serve Lanark County. A day hospice was set in place at McMartin House, Perth, in January 2011 to provide a psychosocial respite program for people with a terminal or life-limiting illness.

This successful program received no government funding through the South East Local Health Integration Network (SELHIN) and has been supported entirely through the generosity of individuals and businesses in Perth and Smiths Falls and surrounding area. During the past three years SELHIN coordinated a review of hospice palliative

care across the region. The review looked at all hospice services including residential hospices. In 2013 this led to a decision by SELHIN that a pilot residential hospice would be established in Picton and that all hospice services would integrate with a local hospital or Community Support Services agency. Although DHH originally hoped to establish a residential hospice this will not be possible until the pilot project is completed following which, if there is sufficient community demand and demonstrated viability for

residential hospices, SELHIN may initiate a review. For now the emphasis will continue to be the provision of volunteer-based services that will enable people with a terminal or life-limiting illness to remain at home as long as possible. Doug Burt, chair of the DHH board, said this is good news for palliative services. He expressed the appreciation of the DHH board for the outstanding support received from the community over the past six years. “The day hospice program is not coming to an end,” he

said. “Along with the other local palliative care programs, (it) will continue to require community support.” Mary Anne Nicholson, executive director of CHSLC stated she welcomes the addition of the day hospice to the CHSLC palliative care services and that it simply makes sense that these services be provided under the management of one community agency. She noted that the “community has always shown support for these very necessary and successful programs” and hopes that this support will continue.

This series will focus on the caregiver by offering valuable education and will empower them to be the best caregivers possible. Dr. Carole Cohen , professor at the University of Toronto and a researcher at the Sunnybrook Health Science Centre specializing in Geriatric Psychiatry, will be discussing compassion fatigue and ways to avoid it. Dr. Jennifer Becker, a physician with the Renfrew County Geriatric Day Hospital will be providing advice on what caregiver should know when visiting the doctor’s office. Angele Lavalle, Psycho-

geriatric Resource Consultant with Community Services of Ottawa, will share tips on self-care for the caregiver and the Alzheimer Society will also be offering practical in-home tips. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the day. Please feel free to bring your questions and concerns. All are welcome to attend! This event is being held at the Carleton Place Community Centre from 9:30am to 3:30pm. Registration will begin at 8:45am. The cost is $10 per person and includes lunch. All participants must register in advance. Please contact Jan Watson at 613256-1031 ext. 39 or jwatson@themills.on.ca to register or for more information.

Manage Your Money is to hold stocks and equity mutual funds outside RRSP eligible investments or a TFSA because these types of investments are taxed at a more favourable capital gains inclusion rate plus dividends from most Canadian corporations are eligible for the dividend tax credit. • Pay for your kids’ education. Set up Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs) to fund their future education costs. Contributions to investments within a RESP are not tax-deductible but their growth is tax-deferred and they qualify for Canadian Education Savings Grants (CESG)* of up to 20% of your contribution for the first $2,500 you contribute in your child’s RESP each year. • Pay down costly, highinterest credit debt and then pay down non-deductible debt such as your mortgage – a single prepayment could potentially save hundreds, even thousands of dollars in interest payments. • If your refund is large consider parking that cash in a short-term investment

that you can access without penalty. That way, you’ll have a ready source of money for a rainy day or a larger purchase – a new car? – without having to borrow or use credit. (A TFSA is also a good rainy day fund.) Getting a tax refund feels good – what will feel even better is talking to your professional advisor about not getting one next year as part of a comprehensive taxreducing financial plan that will make it possible for you to achieve all your financial and life goals. *CESG is provided by the Government of Canada.

On May 8, 2014 Mills Community Support Corporation and the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County will be presenting an all-day education workshop entitled: Discussing Dementia - “Caring for the Caregiver”. There is a new case of dementia reported every 4 seconds worldwide. By 2050, dementia care will cost over $600 billion globally. If dementia were a country, it would be the world’s 18th largest economy. Dementia affects a person’s memory, communication & language, visual perception, reasoning & judgement.

It’s usually better not to get a tax refund but if you are getting one the key question is what you should do with your refund. You could simply spend it but there are other alternatives with longer term benefits for your financial future: • Immediately use your refund to make up your 2014 Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) contribution and you’ll get the benefit of nearly an extra year of potential long-term tax-deferred growth plus a tax deduction against next year’s taxes. • Contribute to investments held in a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA). You are allowed to invest up to $5,500 a year in a TFSA. Your contributions are not tax-deductible but you will not be taxed on the investment income generated by the investments in your TFSA, you can make tax-free withdrawals for any purpose at any time, and you can re-contribute any of those withdrawals in a future year. • Invest it. If your RRSP eligible investments and TFSA are topped up, consider adding your refund to your non-registered investments. The most tax-efficient strategy

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

CNIB thanks supporters as part of National Volunteer Week DEAR EDITOR: In honour of National Volunteer Week (April 6 to 12), CNIB would like to thank its incredible volunteers; we couldn’t do what we do without them. CNIB has always been an organization of people helping people, and nowhere is that more evident than in the dedicated work of our volunteers. Our volunteer team stretches from one end of the country to the other – and is made up of Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life.

Every day, passionate CNIB volunteers make a difference for our clients through their selfless work. Please remember to take the time to acknowledge the volunteers in your community - especially during this week. A simple “thank you” reminds them that their work is appreciated.

COMMENTARY

Helping hand for hospice Editorial – The role of hospice is greatly underappreciated. Helping someone facing the end of their life die with dignity is an incredible task to have, but having added support can make the effort much smoother. This is evidenced by the agreement Dignity House Hospice recently signed with Community Home Support Lanark County (CHSLC) to merge its day hospice into hospice palliative care services managed by the CHSLC. Since 2008, Dignity House has had the goal of establishing a residential hospice, and began running a day hospice at McMartin House in Perth in January 2011. This is the little hospice that could. All of their efforts have been achieved through no government funding by the South East Local Health Integration Network. It’s all been the outpouring of support from the community that has kept this venture alive. As with any initiative, growth happens and there is a need for further support. Enter the CHSLC, who will be able to help with this. They currently offer a volunteer hospice visiting service and bereavement service to residents within Lanark County. It makes sense that Dignity House can lean on their proven track record and know their day hospice service is in good hands. We applaud organizations like Dignity House Hospice and the CHSLC for offering these valuable services to the county. They will never truly know how much their efforts mean to someone with a terminal or life-limiting illness who is able to remain at home as long as possible.

Mary panics over loose tooth but Ronny has just the solution Lifestyle – Why my cousins from Montreal were with us that time of year was beyond me. Ronny and Terry had come with Aunt Helen, who promptly went home on the train as soon as their clothes were unpacked. So it looked like they were going to be with us out on the farm for a while. Long enough that Ronny would go off to the Northcote School, while Terry, the youngest, would stay home with Mother. Even though Ronny was a force to contend with, I loved it when the Lapointe cousins visited us on the farm. There was never a dull moment. That early spring morning, a Saturday it was, I woke with a front tooth in the bottom of my mouth hanging by a thread. I could feel it with my tongue, and I fled my bed like I was on my way to the gallows...Mother was already in the kitchen stirring porridge. I pointed to the tooth, vowed I was on my death bed, and by that time had woken the entire household who still had not gotten up. Mother looked in my mouth and lifted her hand as if she was about to perform surgery, and I clamped my mouth shut

tight, still screaming at the top of my lungs. Ronny came downstairs into the kitchen, immediately knew what all the fuss was about, and announced that he was completely capable of getting rid of the tooth, and I wouldn’t feel a thing. “I get rid of Terry’s all the time,” he said. Terry, still groggy, and too young to know what was going on, curled up on the creton couch by the Findlay Oval and promptly fell back to sleep. Ronny went to the cupboard, got out the ball of string, and ripped off a goodly portion and said he would make a loop over the tooth, I would sit on a chair, and he would walk slowly to the back door, hanging on to the other end of the string, and the tooth would be gone. “You won’t feel a thing,” he said. Well, the last time Ronny experimented with me and one of his high fallootin’ ideas I flew off the shed roof holding an open umbrella and had a splint on my leg for two weeks. Mother was working away at making breakfast for Father and the brothers, who would soon be coming in from the morning chores, and she was paying Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

absolutely no attention to Ronny or me and the seriousness of what was going on around her. I was still crying, with my mouth clamped tight as if my lips had been glued with mucilage. I could wobble the tooth with my tongue, and as far as I was concerned, I was ready to be taken in to old Doctor Murphy. Forget going to the dentist! I remembered the one and only time any of us ever went to a real dentist, it cost three dollars, and my sister Audrey who was the victim, said he nearly killed her! I knew being driven 12 miles into Renfrew to have a wobbly tooth removed by Doctor Murphy was out of the question, and I finally agreed to let Ronny look in my mouth.

“You won’t feel a thing,” Ronny said, as he neared my chair with the ball of string. “For goodness sake, Mary, the tooth is just hanging there. Let Ronny do what he has to do so I can get the breakfast on the table. This commotion over a baby tooth is ridiculous,” Mother said as she banged the porridge pot on the Findlay Oval, stirring with a wooden spoon. Making the most of the situation, and adding as much drama as he could muster, Ronny said he would go as far away as the parlour door to pull the string. “That way you won’t know when I am going to do it.” As he neared my mouth, I told him I would put the string around the tooth, and he reluctantly handed me the ball made up of pieces we had retrieved from parcels bought at Briscoes General Store. All the time I was pressing my tongue against the offending tooth, and I could tell it had loosened considerably. And then just as Ronny headed for the parlour, unrolling the string as he went, I felt the tooth lying in the bottom of my mouth. No longer was it a loose tooth...it was now a tooth that had come out on its 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

own, with the help of my tongue! I didn’t have the heart to tell Ronny it was all over. I had a good hold of the end of the string, and told Ronny I was ready. Ronny jerked the string like he was pulling turnips, and I let it fall to the floor and had the presence of mind to drop the tooth at my feet. Ronny skated around the corner of the kitchen, saw the string and the tooth laying on the floor, and puffed up his chest like had just discovered America! “Told you it wouldn’t hurt. You probably have other teeth that are ready to come out too. Let me have a look.” Mother saved the day by telling us if we didn’t get to the table at once for breakfast, she was clearing the kitchen, and we would all have to wait for dinner at noon for our next mouthful of food. Ronny took the tooth between his thumb and finger, looked it over, and said “I don’t want to be a General any more...I think I will be a dentist!” Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

chips and a silver plated chain. The branches are fashioned in non-tarnish silver-plated wire. The artist selected amethyst chips to represent the Lanark County Interval House colour. The Tree of Life represents growth, wisdom, protection, bounty and redemption and is a universal symbol that can be found in the spiritual traditions of most cultures. Amethysts are also a major gemstone in crystal healing and represent protection and balance. One of the most interesting new gem concepts to hit the area is Kameleon jewelry, a beautiful line of sterling silver pieces from a Nova Scotia company that include rings, earrings, pendants, bracelets, necklaces and pins with interchangeable inserts called JewelPops. The Kameleon line allows you to express your individuality because you can change the JewelPop whenever, to match your mood or outfit. To start off your Kameleon collection, two gorgeous pieces have been donated by our local dealer, Keepsakes Gift Shop in Almonte. One is a lovely pair of sterling silver filgree dangle earrings with an African violet Swarovski crystal JewelPop in the centre. The other piece is a Concentric Circles 18-inch pendant necklace. Terra Henry, owner of Keepsakes Gift Shop has graciously donated two different JewelPops for the pendant – one is white rock crystal, and the other is a green sparkle Swarovski crystal. Every dollar raised through the online auction will be used to directly fund agency programs. Lanark County Interval House provides extensive support for children, youth and women who experience abuse, and can refer men to the appropriate resources. All the services are free and confidential, and you do not need to be a resident of the shelter to access the services. For any of the services call 613-2575960 or 1-800-267-7946, 24 hours a day, or visit www.lcih.com to check out the auction or find out other ways you can help.

Something for everyone – vintage, designer one-of-a-kind, tons of watches, and plenty of whimsical kitch,” says Sue Cronkwright, a long-time volunteer for Interval House and one of the organizers of the Bedazzled auction. “Donations have come from all over – Almonte, Smiths Falls, Perth, Ottawa, Toronto, Quebec…Some of our designers are returning from last year, and there are quite a few new participants as well. The response has been really exciting!” Last year, the auction raised more than $2,300 for Lanark County Interval House and the organizers aim to surpass that amount this year. The event Facebook page (2nd annual BeDazzled Online Jewelry Auction) is already getting quite a bit of interest.

Lanark County urges extra steps when using VOIP to call 9-1-1 note when using VOIP: â&#x20AC;˘ Ensure your VOIP provider offers emergency 9-1-1 service. Some require you to activate it. â&#x20AC;˘ When you sign up with a VOIP service provider, make sure your location information is current at all times. (If you cannot speak when you call, emergency responders may be sent to your last registered address, so it must be up to date.) â&#x20AC;˘ Ensure you know your location, including the civic address number, street/road name and the municipality (town or township). For example, 217 Harper Road, Tay Valley Township â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not Glen Tay. â&#x20AC;˘ Ensure you know your call-back number. (Four-party telephone lines also do not display this.) â&#x20AC;˘ Do not hang up unless you are told to do so. If you are disconnected, call 9-1-1 again. VOIP will not function during a power or Internet outage or if your service is suspended or terminated. It may also experience problems during network congestion or equipment malfunction. â&#x20AC;˘ Make sure guests are aware of VOIP procedures.

Lanark County chief administrative officer, Kurt Greaves, notes people must be sure to use 9-1-1 responsibly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 9-1-1 service is for emergencies, so you should call if someone is taking or damaging someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Here are some key items to property, if someone is hurt

Surfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up at May 3 Beach Boys tribute Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long, cold, winter, and it seems like those parking lot snow banks might hang around until July. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, baby...the sounds of the beach are coming to town! Saturday, May 3 the Studio Theatre in Perth hosts Surfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Up!, a dancing in the aisles tribute to the original boys of summer, the Beach Boys. Surfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Up! stars the phenomenal Canadian tribute band, Endless Summer, four guys who have the style, the smiles, and the impossibly high vocals of the Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, The Rivieras and others absolutely nailed. Their uncanny ability to listen to a record, figure out how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put together, then recreate it themselves, is the key to Endless Summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazingly accurate performance of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s classics, like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surfinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; USAâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;California Sunâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little Deuce Coupeâ&#x20AC;?. Since 1995, the Toronto bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great performances have taken them across the US and Canada, and earned them legions of

loyal fans. Surfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Up! appeals to fans of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s music and the sun worshiper in all of us. And Endless Summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tireless effort to perfect their take on this important cultural era makes the band a top concert attraction and a pleasure to meet. Listening to them perform the hits of the Beach Boys and other sixties stars will instantly transport you to a beach in the California sun. So put on your shorts and T-shirts, pretend youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re back in high school, and come sing along with those great â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s songs we all know and love. And when the show is over, take home an autographed copy of Endless Summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All Your Surfinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hits CD and tell your friends and relatives you were there. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be so jealous! Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss Surfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Up! at the Studio Theatre, Saturday, May 3 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 (includes all taxes and fees) and are available at Shadowfax in Perth.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lanark County Emergency Services is reminding the public about what they need to know when it comes to using 9-1-1 service, especially in light of recent issues surrounding the use of Voice Over Internet Protocol systems (VOIP). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although 9-1-1 is designed to be easy to use, there are a few things people need to bear in mind to ensure they get the help they need when they need it, especially if they use VOIP,â&#x20AC;? said Rick Hannah, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency services co-ordinator. VOIP is a way for people to use the Internet to make calls instead of through a traditional telephone line. There are many different applications and VOIP products available. It is sometimes called Internet telephony, IP telephony or Voice over the Internet (VOI). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most companies that provide VOIP include an emergency 9-1-1 service, but it is a little bit different than the standard service,â&#x20AC;? Hannah said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For instance, on a traditional telephone the emergency response centre sees your call-back number and location, but that may not be the case with VOIP and your call may not be directed to the nearest emergency response centre. Users need to take extra steps to ensure emergency services can find them in an emergency. It could save a life.â&#x20AC;?

that we should look the other way,“ Pietersma said. “Tonight, I want to send a strong message to our schools and our communities that our policies and our codes of conduct must be observed. There should be a zero-tolerance approach to drugs and alcohol at school-sponsored events,” he stated. Pietersma took the approach after a board principal at one UCDSB high school enforced the code at a school dance by preventing some students from attending. Police were called and some students were suspended. “Rather than applauding the work of this principal in keeping our students safe and upholding our code of conduct some parents pushed back saying it was wrong because the children were not intoxicated,” he said. Pietersma said this attitude must be changed. Part of the intent of the resolution is that the board encourages the formation and reactivation of Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving (OSAID) chapters at our high schools in order to spread the message of safety. Trustee Anne McRae said it was critical that the board spread the message that underage drinking

News – It’s time for a “zero-tolerance” approach to drug and alcohol use by students attending schoolsponsored events, said Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) chair Greg Pietersma. At Pietersma’s urging April 9, trustees unanimously supported a resolution requesting director David Thomas take action to address the issue of student use of alcohol or drugs at school events. The resolution will create a new strategic plan charter to address the issue focusing on student-driven solutions. The charter will ensure school code of conduct rules are strictly adhered to in order to ensure student safety. Student suspensions could result if students show up at proms, dances or other events under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Pietersma said that as parents we owe it to our young people to keep them safe and teach them responsible practices. While there may be pushback in the community, the board must have the courage to ensure students remain safe, he said. “I think there is an assumption out there amongst our communities that as long as a child is not disruptive (while under the influence at a school event)

Members of the Perth Royal Canadian Legion and other branches will attend the Rock the Hill Rally on Parliament Hill June 4 to protest program, medical treatment and benefit cuts to veterans. Above, the Perth Legion embraced veterans advocacy last fall (SISIP) Long Term Disability Class Action in March of 2007. The lawsuit was on behalf of Dennis Manuge and all other disabled veterans whose benefits were reduced by the amount of

the monthly Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) disability pension they were receiving under the Pension Act. A decision by the federal court in May of 2012 ruled in favour of

Manuge, and that the government must stop clawing back money from veterans’ pensions, and repay up to $1 billion that had been deducted over a period of nearly 30 years. A similar

case, the Equitas Class Action Lawsuit, is currently before the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Manuge related that “Rob Gallant provided direct and continuous close support to me personally for the entire duration the legal challenge. He took the added volunteer responsibility for relaying direct SISIP class action information to a database of class members, veterans’ organizations, and media members. Despite the SISIP court victory, there remains a multitude of issues facing the veterans’ community and their families. The Equitas class action, suicide rates, reductions in staffing and office closures at VAC, homeless vets, systemic failure at Veterans Review and Appeal Board, the current minister’s culture of disrespecting veterans, and the list goes on. This is why there is a need for Rock the Hill. Canadians need to hear from us and see us. It’s an awesome initiative on Rob’s part.” In an email interview, Gallant acknowledged that Canada’s veterans and serving members “have definitely been let down by this government in so many ways it’s hard to keep count. This current government has set veterans rights and benefits back at least a decade if not two. One only has to ask: Why do veterans, as a last resort, have to take their own government to court to get the system fixed?” Gallant referred to the two major court cases previously mentioned, the SISIP and Equitas class actions.

News – Apparently Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino hadn’t heard the saying “don’t poke the sleeping bear,” when he brushed off a group of veterans who had arrived at the minister’s office for a scheduled meeting on Jan. 28. What had been a simmering pot of human emotions among veterans and advocacy groups reached a boiling point at the Fantino office debacle, and it would seem that enough fuel has been added to the fire to ensure a successful turnout of veterans for a rally which begins June 4 on Parliament Hill. Rock the Hill 2014 is the brainchild of Rob Gallant, a former Royal Canadian Air Force member who was medically released in 2003 after serving his country for 20 years. Gallant intends to show the government “that we, as veterans, have been pushed to the point that we no longer will stay silent while they cut our programs, medical treatment, and benefits, without a fight.” He went on to say that if the expected number of people show up for the event, “it will show this government we will no longer stay the silent minority that they have always counted on. (We hope to) enlighten the Canadian public on all the misleading statements or half-truths stated by this government. In simple terms we will be filling in the blanks that the government seems to always leave out.” Gallant’s involvement in veterans’ advocacy goes back at least to the Service Income Security Insurance Plan

In fact, he can do everything everyone else can do, sometimes with the help of a special device. Having a passion for playing hockey, Clayton was fitted with a hockey adaptation which was funded by The War Amps. Clayton is a member of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) program and, as such is eligible to receive financial assistance with artificial limbs and recreational devices. Clayton’s parents say the hockey device has allowed him to keep up with the other kids on the ice this past winter and maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. “Noth-

RALLY From page 12

said that “in both of these cases the government knows what they are and were doing, is unfair and wrong, but they continue to use taxpayers’ money to fight the same veterans that they proudly state in public they support. Not to mention the amount of veterans that have to endure a long and hard fight to get the benefits and treatment they are rightfully entitled to from VAC. Many are taking their own lives due to the way the system is set up against them.” The suicide issue relating to veterans and serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) was brought to the fore on Nov. 29, 2013 when CBC’s Rosemary Barton interviewed retired colonel and former Veterans’ Ombudsman Pat Stogran. “It’s not news; it’s bad news; it’s not new news; there’s going to be more,” Stogran said in an impassioned response to Barton’s questioning. At the time, three confirmed suicides had occurred in that month of November, and in just a few days there would be another. Although those suicides had occurred among serving CAF personnel, experts agree there are also many veterans across the country that are dealing with the horrors and suffering of PostTraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which is thought to be the strongest link to suicide and attempts. Stogran will be one of the keynote speakers at the Parliament Hill rally. That rash of suicides forced politicians, military command, and support organizations to address that previously unmentionable subject, when the Royal Canadian Legion, Veterans Affairs Canada, and the Minister of Defence all

The level of public outrage was apparent in the CBC interview with Stogran, who is known for his outspokenness and criticism of the government. In a voice shaking with emotion, he asked Barton the rhetorical question: “How many ways do you say tsunami?” Stogran went on to say “how terribly

we treat the worst cases and the people who are the most desperate.” Although the Legion has been strongly criticized in the past for not taking a stance on political issues, their news release at the time stated: “The Legion strongly believes that all Canadians trust the government will honour its obligation to the men and women of

the CAF and the RCMP who willingly risk injury, illness or death to serve our country, protecting the values and way of life we all enjoy. There is also a responsibility to the families of these men and women. These recent tragic events highlight that there is a perception by our serving members that there is no hope. How can a culture built on camaraderie and team work leave a soldier so isolated and so alone?” The release ended by asking: “How can we possibly justify spending money to mark the commemorations for our achievements as nation when the mental health care system supporting the men and women of the CAF, both Regular and Reserve, as well as RCMP members and all their families who serve our country, is overburden and lacking resources?” Public debate on how to deal with military suicides was renewed, wrote Andre Mayer of CBC News on Mar. 24, with the recent deaths of two Canadian soldiers who fought in Afghanistan. “But veterans advocates say that the data collected by the Canadian Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs Canada on how many active and retired army personnel have committed suicide is incomplete, and makes it difficult to help soldiers who may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).” As of Mayer’s news article, five military suicides had been confirmed in 2014. Local Legions welcome to attend Legion Branch 244 in Perth plans to attend the rally as a group, and is encouraging other Legion branches in the area to join them. Perth and area Le-

gions are no strangers to advocacy on behalf of veterans, as on Sept. 16, 2013, Medric “Cous” Cousineau and his service dog Thai were welcomed by Perth and other Legion branches during the Long Walk to Sanity, part of the Paws Fur Thought initiative, between Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia and Ottawa. Cousineau was hailed as a hero in 1986 while serving as a tactical co-ordinator on an Armed Forces Sea King helicopter, when he and his crew responded to a call from an American fishing vessel in distress several hundred miles off the coast of Newfoundland. In spite of being injured during the mission, he managed to rescue the two men, and he was later awarded the Star of Courage by then Governor General Jeanne Sauvé. After showing symptoms of PTSD following the traumatic incident, Cousineau experienced a tragic downward spiral, and he was eventually forced to leave the military. Paws Fur Thought was an idea born in 2012 and, while the “Long Walk to Sanity” ended on Sept. 19 at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, the concept of Paws Fur Thought and other initiatives to assist veterans and their families continues on, thanks to the support of many dedicated individuals and organizations. This old proverbial message goes to our current government: “Don’t poke sleeping bears if you want to live a long and happy life.” Perhaps Rock the Hill 2014 will be an opportunity for bureaucrats and elected officials to reach out to the many veterans and supporters assembled there.

Enjoying a wonderful new chapter in life as a grandparent Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

are the same. However, several friends and acquaintances also offered this rather interesting thought in the days leading up to Lily’s birth. “Being a grandparent is much easier than being a parent,” they suggest. “That’s because you can always give them back and go home!” I found that approach worked very well when we were in Regina. When Lily cried and particularly when a rather unpleasant aroma emanated from my little granddaughter’s person we (both Kathy and myself) quite gladly handed her to Heather or Indy. “Your problem – we’re just the grandparents,” we told them. They have accepted the tasks at hand in very good spirits I must say. Meanwhile we did the dishes, shopped for the groceries and Kathy prepared some of the meals. Important duties, but not nearly as demanding! Listening to a baby cry is obviously very different from having to manage all of their needs 24/7. Yes, those who gave us advice on this subject have turned out to be quite astute. Grandparenting is like riding a bicycle! In reality, parenting involves acquired skills. In my experience no one automatically knows how to be the perfect parent. Age helps I think. Heather and Indy are in their 30s and have plenty of life experience behind them. They know other couples who have started families and they have observed what it takes to manage infants day to day. Also, in our modern world there are so many new and wonderful

tools to aid first-time parents. Everything from disposable diapers to well-designed bassinets and carriages. That’s not to mention all of the tools available to help entertain children as they grow. Infant apparel has also developed to a much higher level. As I write this, I can’t help but think back to when Kathy and I were first married. We were just kids ourselves, in our late teens. When our first child, son Craig, was born in St. Thomas, Ontario three years later (I was a reporter at the daily newspaper there) we were still young and inexperienced in so many ways. Everything was different then.

been far more difficult with a new baby in a small apartment. Kathy vividly recalls using cloth diapers and how much work that was. Do you remember diaper pails? For anyone familiar with that stinky process I don’t need to write anything else. As for my wife and me, we are tickled pink to be the grandparents of little Lily. We feel truly blessed and look forward to many enjoyable times ahead. Did I tell you how beautiful she is?

The prenatal situation was lower impact. So too was the birthing experience. Once a baby was born he/she was kept in one large nursery and brought to their mothers and fathers. Much more regimented, far more conservative! Today mother, father and baby can all stay in the same room in most cases. It is a more hands on experience for the parents. When Kathy and Craig were released from the hospital way back in 1975 we were so green. Where to start? It can be quite an intimidating experience for novices. If Kathy’s parents hadn’t lived so close (they were just 90 minutes away in Chatham) life would have

When their diaper needs changing they cry. Sometimes they cry for no apparent reason. Well, some people might not warm to the possibility of being sleepless in Regina. In truth some people might not want to go to Regina in the first place. Lily’s crying was music to my ears. No pillow over the head for this new “Grandpa”! I soaked in every minute of it. Because I know from experience that it won’t last long. Having an infant in the family is something to be treasured – savoured in fact. Oh yes, about Regina! The city clearly gets a bum rap from some people. It’s a very nice place and I mean that sincerely. We like it there. Now that our granddaughter was born and lives in the city, Regina and Saskatchewan will always be special to us. It will also be a frequent destination for Kathy and me as long as our daughter and her family live there. I am certainly not going to go over the top in this column. But perhaps my thoughts on the subject of parenting and now “grandparenting” (yes that is a real term) will resonate with some of you. Field of study By the way there are countless books on the subject of parenting for anyone who is interested. Heather has purchased a few and I spent a couple of evenings delving into the subject once again. No matter how old our two children get I am still a parent and new books offer fresh ideas. I suspect there are fewer books on the subject of grandparenting? Checking online I found one on Amazon that looks interesting. It’s called ‘Grandparenting for Dummies.’ The title alone means I will have to check it out. During Heather’s pregnancy a good friend of ours said, “Being a grandparent is like riding a bicycle. You never forget how to be a parent!” It’s true. The basic principles

R0012606091_0417

Lifestyle – It’s not something I had thought about a great deal and it isn’t something I worried about either. Now that it has happened I can’t believe how excited I am. My life has moved in a new direction. I’m a grandfather and I can hardly believe my good fortune! I have a wonderful wife and children. Our extended family is so good. I am very lucky! But when I met my granddaughter for the first time I was rendered speechless. And anyone who knows me will tell you that is definitely out of character. Her name is Lily and she is gorgeous! I know, I know – all grandparents say the same thing. But this little eight-pound bundle of joy (Lily weighed seven pounds, seven ounces at birth on March 19) has pushed a button I didn’t know I had. I’ve fallen head over heels for her. These days I find I’m checking my email much more often than usual. I’m hoping more photos of our little doll have arrived. Thank goodness for Skype! Lily is the child of our daughter Heather and her partner Indy. He is an engineer who works for an Ottawa-based firm in Saskatchewan. So the distance is a small challenge. But getting to the Canadian Prairies by air is easy and less than a week after Lily’s birth Kathleen and I arrived in chilly, but relatively snow-free Regina, where we spent most of a week with the new arrival and her parents. I’ve told my family and close friends this. Now I am opening my heart to the readers of this newspaper. When I first held Lily I knew my life – our lives – had changed forever. In the most wonderful way imaginable! Every night little Lily made her presence known in the only way infants can. She cried – a lot! As you know that is a baby’s means of communication. When they are hungry they cry.

REGIONAL NEWS

Make seat belt compliance voluntary rather than through enforcement over Easter weekend, says OPP seat belt related deaths, currently sitting at nine in OPP jurisdiction, from rising. Road users should expect to see much higher volumes of traffic over the weekend, making it a particularly important weekend for all drivers, passengers and young children to be properly restrained, regardless of how short a trip

people are taking. The nine victims who have died so far this year in collisions where lack of proper restraint was cited as a causal factor range from 21 to 64 years of age. The OPP recognizes that seat belt noncompliance is largely related to attitude rather than age.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young drivers tend to get a bad rap when it comes to seat belt compliance. We are seeing more young drivers than ever buckling up and taking the risks associated with lack of restraint very seriously early on in their driving years. These healthy attitudes paint a positive outlook for seat belt safety on our roads,

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Occupant restraint will be the OPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main traffic focus over the Easter long weekend. Officers are urging those few non-compliant drivers and passengers who continue to put themselves and others at risk to buckle up every time they drive. They are asking the motoring public to work with them to keep 2014


REGIONAL NEWS From page 24

Ontarians have a generally high compliance rate with seat belt laws, but there are still a handful of people who need to adopt the same voluntary compliance mindset as the majority of road users. Driving is a privilege, but is too often thought of as a right. All motorists need to be responsible and accountable for

poor driving behaviours because they impact the safety of other road users,â&#x20AC;? Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander of the OPP Highway Safety Division. Click on the following video link to see how a seat belt saved a young womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life: https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=6oyH0UexsHc. Over the long weekend, the OPP will

also be looking to drivers to help them keep Ontario roads safe from other lifethreatening driver behaviours that continue to kill innocent people of all ages. These are: distracted driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding and other forms of aggressive driving. Drivers are also being reminded to respect and obey Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Move Over

law when approaching a stopped emergency vehicle. The law requires drivers to slow down, pass with caution and if the road has two or more lanes, drivers must move over into another lane if it can be done safely.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The provincial government is making it more convenient for people to buy local food and alcohol in grocery stores with the first LCBO Express stores to open by the end of 2014. Located inside larger grocery retailers, the smaller-format stores will carry a range of the LCBOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-selling beer, wine and spirits, including Ontario craft beer and VQA wine. Retailers interested in responding to the proposal must be able to accommodate at least 2,000 square feet of retail space for the LCBO within their existing store. Modernizing Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liquor laws and supporting the domestic wine, beer and spirits industries are part of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomor-

row. The comprehensive plan and its six priorities focus on Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest strengths â&#x20AC;&#x201C; its people and strategic partnerships. The LCBO issued a Request for Proposals April 1 for up to seven LCBO Express stores and will be accepting proposals until May 9. The company has a longstanding tradition of selling responsibly and also encouraging customers to serve and consume beverage alcohol products in moderation. In 2012-13, 7.8 million customers were challenged for proof of age or identification and 322,000 were refused service by LCBO employees. The total estimated value of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beverage alcohol market in 201213 is $10 billion. Submitted by the Province of Ontario.

related fatalities on Ontario roads â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 41 per cent of which occurred at intersections. When asked about the application of the new distracted driving rules to cyclists, MTO has responded to say that the new distracted regulations will not apply to that group as, according to them; this proposed legislation is motorvehicle specific. The last item in the list, referring to yielding the entire roadway to pedestrians represents a bad habit many motorists will find hard to break. This means that when a pedestrian is in a crosswalk, a vehicle may not encroach on that pathway until the pedestrian is clear and on the sidewalk. In almost any town or city in Ontario, a diligent police officer will be able to write tickets all day long because almost every driver makes a turn onto a crosswalk long before any pedestrians complete their journey to the far side. A few tips to those doing any under-the-hood spring cleaning. Take the time to service your vehiclesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; battery terminals and cable ends. A quick brushing with a steel brush, followed by an application of battery terminal protector spray is all it takes to prolong the life of both the cable ends and the battery itself. Some battery cable ends are very hard to replace on their own and sometimes come from the manufacturer only as part of a very expensive engine wiring harness assembly. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disconnect the battery until you check your ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual to see if any anti-theft electronics may be affected. If this is the case, you can get an easy-to-use power supply that plugs into any dash power point to keep uninterrupted voltage going to the on-board computers and radio memory circuits while you service the battery. Avoid pressure washing any vehicle engine. The third constant in our lives after death and taxes is the

Some of the stats provided by the MTO to justify the reasons for these new rules are: Drinking and driving fatalities represented close to 25 per cent of all fatalities annually. According to current collision trends, fatalities from distracted driving are forecasted to exceed those from drinking and driving by 2016. Pedestrians represent about 16 per cent of motor vehicle-

fact that more electronics are being jammed under the hood of vehicles every year and the majority of them are susceptible to water damage. If you want to degrease and clean your engine bay, use light amounts of commercial degreaser and wipe down the affected areas with an absorbent wipe, rather than rinsing the grime off with a hose. Be careful storing any oily rags until garbage day as they can be a fire hazard. Let them air dry and store them loose in a metal container with a lid in a well-ventilated area.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi Brian I recently purchased 2013 Subaru outback with 22,000 kilometres. Apparently in its past life it had a damaged right rear tire which has been replaced with a legal used tire of the same make and model of the original but is worn more than the other tires on the vehicle. Thus this one tire has slightly smaller circumference than the other tires. Will this cause any problems in the differential? Should I replace it with a new tire? Any other suggestions?â&#x20AC;? Thanks Ron I would suggest taking a circumference measurement of the tire/wheel assembly (with a piece of string or flexible tape measure). The tires will have to be off the ground for this measurement. If the difference is less than three per cent you should be okay. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anything more than that, you should consider changing the tire. Depending on the wear of the other tire on the same axle, you may have to purchase a pair. By now most of us have seen or heard of the Ministry of Transportationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (MTO) recent press releases outlining more upcoming changes to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highway Traffic Act. For a refresher they are: 1) Increasing fines for distracted driving from a range of $60 to $500 to a range of $300 to $1,000 and assigning three demerit points upon conviction. 2) Increasing fines for drivers for dooring cyclists from a range of $60 to $500 to range of $300 to $1,000 and raising the demerit points from two to three. 3) Requiring all drivers to maintain a distance of one metre when passing cyclists. 4) Requiring drivers to yield the whole roadway to pedestrians at school crossings and pedestrian crossovers.

We are pleased to offer financial assistance to women residing in Perth and surrounding areas who are pursuing an accredited College or University program. Women of all ages are eligible to apply, subject to acceptance in a recognized post secondary program of study.

children and youth with positive role models, mentoring programs demonstrate to them that they are valued, and that they possess the strength to overcome the obstacles they will undoubtedly face as they grow older. Mentoring also plays an important role in the future direction a child will decide to take later on in life, paving the way to a future full of possibilities. Children who have been in mentoring programs see real, positive change. The children involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters go on to graduate from high school at a rate of 20 per cent higher than the national average. Seventy-eight per cent of those children who came from a social assistance background no longer rely on this form of income and a disproportionately high number of former Littles graduate from college or university compared to others in their age group. On the other hand, children who are denied the benefit of a positive role model are children who will continue to be deemed â&#x20AC;&#x153;at riskâ&#x20AC;?, and not children â&#x20AC;&#x153;on the brink of success.â&#x20AC;?

Legacy gift to CHEO generates $4.6 million As CHEO gets ready to celebrate its 40th anniversary this year, it is natural to reflect back to the early days of the hospital. It was a dream that was built on sheer will and determination by a community that was committed to providing the best health care for its children and youth. During the late 1960’s and early 70’s, physicians, elected officials, parents and the community at large joined forces to establish a special and distinct hospital to serve the children and youth of eastern Ontario and western Quebec. This group raised $4 million from the community which was a formidable sum for the times.

When Mr. Cochrane died in 1985 the CHEO Foundation received $540,000 from his estate. The Foundation established the Weldon Cochrane Endowment Fund with his gift as directed in his Will. Much has happened and changed at CHEO in the nearly 30 years since Mr. Cochrane’s death, and in that time his legacy gift has generated $4.6 million in interest which has benefited generations of patients and families at CHEO. In 25 years from now based on a conservative interest rate of 6% The Cochrane Endowment Fund will be valued at $19,742,605; in 50 years it will be $84,732,710 and in 100 years it will have reached $1,560,789,584.

THE IMPACT OF MR. COCHRANE’S GENEROUS GIFT IS PROBABLY BEYOND WHAT HE COULD HAVE EVEN IMAGINED WHEN HE MADE IT OVER 30 YEARS AGO. HIS LEGACY LIVES ON AND CONTINUES TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF YOUNG PATIENTS AT CHEO TODAY, AND FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. In 1980, when the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) was only just 11 years old, Weldon Cochrane, an Ottawa chartered accountant and partner with the accounting firm of Coopers and Lybrand (now PriceWaterhouseCoopers) was also the Treasurer on the CHEO Foundation Board. Mr. Cochrane had an appreciation for the importance of leaving a legacy and understood how to make an impact. With that in mind, he made a gift in his Will to CHEO leaving the residual of his estate with instructions for it to be endowed; meaning that the capital would be preserved in perpetuity and the annual interest would be used to fund the important work at CHEO. He was predeceased by his wife, Adrienne Cochrane and his only child, Delma Grace Cochrane.

With these funds CHEO will be able to continue to purchase state of the art equipment, fund lifesaving research while continuing to provide the best in pediatric care for the children and youth of our community. His legacy lives on at CHEO every day through the children and families that benefit from his generous and forward thinking.

As CHEO marks this major milestone, we look back and honor those in our community who made our local children’s hospital a reality and donors like Mr. Cochrane who made children a priority in their lives. Donors like him have helped to ensure that CHEO will be here forever. Why not honour what is most important to you during your lifetime by considering a gift in Will to CHEO. Our children, youth and families deserve to always have excellent health care, to benefit from lifesaving research and be provided with the support programs to live happy and healthy lives now and forever.

WHAT IS FOREVER CHEO? Forever CHEO is a way to ensure that CHEO will always be here to provide excellent care, lifesaving research and invaluable support to children and their families every day by making a gift from your estate. When you leave a gift in your Will to CHEO you have the option of designating it to address immediate needs within the Hospital, the Research Institute or the Forever CHEO Endowment Fund. This fund will preserve the full amount of your gift and disperse the interest to CHEO annually. Since the fund will live on in perpetuity, so will your gift to future generations of children at CHEO. This is a way to leave a permanent and meaningful mark on your community.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true; dental hygienists are the 6th largest regulated health profession in Canada. Their goal as primary health care providers is to educate and motivate Canadians to embrace oral health as an essential component of their overall health and well-being. They work in a variety of settings, including independent practice. With the ability to depart traditional dentistry and have their own practices, dental hygienists have opened the doors to access of care for Canadians. Health Care has transformed into a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;collaborative-baseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; model that incorporates many modalities with the public being the biggest beneficiary. It is much more productive and cost efficient to practice on a basis of â&#x20AC;&#x153;preventionâ&#x20AC;? versus â&#x20AC;&#x153;treatmentâ&#x20AC;?. Thanks to healthier lifestyles, Canadians can expect to keep most of their natural teeth as they enter their senior years. Keeping them healthy can be a financial challenge. Many Canadians lack dental coverage and therefore cannot afford to see a dental professional. The results of an ineffective dental hygiene routine can be much worse than tooth loss-it can also have an effect on overall health. Unchecked plaque and tartar on your teeth can result in periodontal disease (disease of the gums and supporting bone). Increasingly, a direct connection is being drawn between periodontal disease and life-threatening illnesses such as heart & lung disease, stroke

THE EMC - 30 - Thursday, April 17, 2014

and diabetes. Since periodontal disease can be prevented and controlled, it is the dental hygienists who have the expertise to play a key role in decreasing both its rate of incidence and severity. Professional dental hygiene care includes an examination of your head and neck, checking your gums and teeth, screening for oral cancer, reviewing healthy diet considerations and developing a care plan that includes prevention and treatment therapies. Prevention is the key! Recognizing the large gap to dental care based on cost, dental hygienists have spearheaded a nationwide campaign called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gift From the Heartâ&#x20AC;?. One day every year around Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, independent dental hygienists all across Canada open their hearts and their clinics to provide oral health care to the public who may be financially unable to receive dental hygiene care; at no cost. This program has spread across the country like wild fire because dental hygienists are very passionate people who are always prepared to give back to their community one â&#x20AC;&#x153;SMILEâ&#x20AC;? at a time. I am proud to be part of such a great profession.... Happy Dental Hygiene Week everyone! Submitted by: Lori Lawrence R.D.H. Smile Sensations Dental Hygiene Clinic Smiths Falls, ON

I had operated an auto body shop in Rigaud, Que., and last year, one of my customers told me about a Graham Hollywood that he and a partner had purchased. I had only a smattering of Graham knowledge but I asked my dad what car was built in 1940 with a supercharger and he knew Graham Hollywood, just like that! â&#x20AC;&#x153;The owners brought the car to my shop. Someone had put in a Studebaker straight six with a GM automatic transmission but without a supercharger. They wanted to sell the car for $1,000. I fixed one guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nissan and paid the other guy $500. The car was a field-find mess but I loved it. The speedo of the car says driving range, then you enter the danger zone. It has Cord good looks with reversehinged front doors. I joined the Graham Owners Club and found a guy in Victoria, B.C., who sold me all his extras: supercharged engine, tranny and differential, and I was ready to start restoring it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mother became ill with stomach cancer and had to have surgery immediately. We went to the Montreal General and in a matter of days my Mum had successful surgery and when we went to see her in recovery, there were four people to a room. One of the patients, a very nice lady named Mme. Gagne, asked me what I did for a living. I mentioned my auto shop and my Hollywood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She replied that her husband and she used to ride in a Hollywood, and if the interior was blue, which it was, it was my car!

Giving every girl the chance to be a princess By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - Fairy godmothers are asked to shine up their wands, and come out in support of the Cinderella Boutique Saturday, May 3 at Cornelia Court. With prom nearly upon us the annual event aims to ensure every young lady will feel like a princess at her graduation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When a girl tries on a dress we ask, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Do you fell like a princess?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; If she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we continue to look. Thankfully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found a dress for every girl that has come in these past eight years,â&#x20AC;? said Penny Evans, one of the coordinators of the event. The program started in 2007 when Smiths Falls was struggling with layoffs and closures. At that time Tom Evans was the Outreach Director with the Smiths Falls Free Methodist Church and the Cinderella Boutique was one

of the programs created under his watch. The Cinderella Boutique outfits graduating students with a dress and all the accessories that go with it, free of charge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We provide the dress, the jewelry, shoes and hand bag - we collect all different accessories to chose from, either new or gently used in different sizes and styles and we really try to keep up with todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s styles and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current,â&#x20AC;? said Pam Saumure, another coordinators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prom and graduation are mile markers in a girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life and we felt that we wanted all girls to be able to attend,â&#x20AC;? said Evans. The program, which has reached nearly 400 young women since it began, works on the generosity of individuals and businesses in town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community loves this event. Rideau Cleaners has been a big supporter for us, dry cleaning

dresses if they are not new. The Saumures have donated space for us to set up the Cinderella Boutique. Impression Printing has done an amazing job with our flyers. There are so many, including (this newspaper) and many more,â&#x20AC;? said Evans. The community too, mostly donates the dresses, some of them brand new and some lightly used but all in style, in excellent condition and fit for a princess according to Evans and Saumure. In the past, the coordinators have been contacted by community member who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a dress to donate asking how they can help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we have incorporated a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sponsor a princessâ&#x20AC;? program. For a $50 donation we can fit a girl with a beautiful dress, shoes and jewelry for her big day,â&#x20AC;? said Evans. The event is hosted at 91 Cornelia Court and any young lady

who needs a dress is invited to call the church at 613-283-5383. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will set up an appointment, ask for their dress size, shoe size and the grade they are in. We ask this information so that we can make sure we have ample dresses for each girl to choose from,â&#x20AC;? said Evans. There are usually anywhere from 250 to 300 dress to choose from some with price tags of $500 or more, and as each girl arrives sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assigned an associate to help her find the right dress for her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also have seamstresses headed by Nancy McFadyn, to make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect fit,â&#x20AC;? said Evans. The program recognizes that prom and grad can be a big expense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want to make every girl feel special,â&#x20AC;? said Saumure, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and see every girl leave with a smile on her face.â&#x20AC;?

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Over the next few weeks, the Record News will highlight some of the artists whose work will be on display and for sale at the Art Journey showcase on May 10 and 11. The event will take place at the Kinsmen Community Pavilion in Lower Reach Park with a variety of mixed media on display from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Participating artists include Tara Anderson-Schepens, Cheryl Colford, Jackie Coldrey, Jane Conley, Don Crowder, Nicole Crowder, Frank Harvey, Leah Hicks, Pam Hills, Kathy Lavender, Sandy McRae, Helen Nicholson, Diane Provost, Alita Rutte, Jill Spear, Tracy Schruder, Tasha Thorpe, Kevin Valliquette, Dennis Webster, Randy Webster and Ralph Welz.

45TH ANNUAL CITIZEN OF THE YEAR AWARD

KATHY LAVENDER

DON CROWDER I am doing and forget the back pain for a time. I get a great deal of joy and relief from carving. Featured artist: Don Crowder For me working in the world of woodturning began about eight years ago when I was looking for a relaxing, stress free hobby to counter balance my full-time job, working as a correctional manger in a provincial correctional and

treatment centre, when at a local artisans show I found a lady who was selling these remarkable wood turnings. On seeing and speaking to her my interest was captivated and with a little research I was attending an initial woodturning course with teacher Brian Ross. The smell of the wood, the flying curls of woodchips and the satisfaction of producing a functional object had me hooked. On returning home I purchased my General International Lathe and started down that road, through trial and error, of becoming an accomplished wood turner. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a wood person and by that I mean that I appreciate the smell, the grain patterns, density and colour of the vast amount of different species of trees and wood therein. When one adds woodturning, the process of spinning wood meeting sharpened knives to make a form, to the equation its sensory overload. A nice piece of maple becomes

and cedar. My preference is butternut but each wood has its own beauty and presents its own challenge. My work reflects a culmination of experience spanning fifty years and has been shown at the The Four Corners and The Art Exchange in Ottawa, Perth Fire Hall, Almonte Town Hall and Heritage House Museum in Smiths Falls and Studio 737 in Tweed. In 1984 I had an exhibition in West Germany and have participated in the Rideau Valley Art Festival in Westport since 1993. My carvings can be found in galleries and private homes throughout Europe, Canada, U.S.A and Australia. I welcome you to visit my country studio by appointment. Featured artist: Francis Harvey I retired from the Ontario Provincial Police in 1993. My friends, Clarence Miller, Bob Kerr and John Garton, influenced me to try my hand at carving in late 2004. These three men have all won numerous carving competitions in Canada and the U.S.A. At first, my carvings were crude and lacked proper details. As time went by, I studied my subjects more thoroughly, added more sophisticated equipment, paid attention to detail and my carvings improved. I have made over six hundred carvings of birds, animals, cartoon

groups to the pool, groups like Mills, Tayside and others. “We’ve had talks with Kevin O’Dair, Community Development Coordinator and we’re working on increasing the activities and partnering with local charities as well,” said Hudson-Craig. Although it’s been a bit of a scramble to launch Plan B and keep the pool running it’s been worth the effort. “We’ve had a lot of support from local businesses and individuals and we knew at the start that we might have to adjust our business plan - it’s a learning curve,” said Evoy. They’ve also approached Valley Heartland and Susan Fournier, its executive direc-

tor has, according to Evoy and Hudson-Craig, been extremely helpful. “We’re addressing our high utility costs and investing in new equipment to cut our heating and hydro costs,” said Evoy. Other revenue streams include providing advertising space on the pool wall. This is a new initiative and there are spaces still available but for more information it’s best to contact Chris Evoy at Impression Printing. “On the whole, we’re feeling very positive. We want to make this a long term success and we’re moving ahead,” said Hudson-Craig, “We know we’ll run into issues here and there but we’ll work through them.”

Shown here Linda Bisonette, hospital CEO, with the Running Thing and Cory Turnbull, who spearheaded the initiative. “I’m thrilled to be hosting this here at the hospital.

Humphrey, owner Good Life Bistro, who will cater the tea. This year the home show will also feature some entertainment both on and off site. “On the floor of the arena we’ll have the Smiths Falls stage coach set up for photo opportunities, customers will be able to climb up and sit in it,” said Quinn. The stagecoach is owned by the town and was built by Keith Salter for the Settlers’ Days festival some time ago. The front lobby will be taken up with a welcome display from the town while outside on both the Saturday and the Sunday, the off leash dog park committee will be hosting barbecues to raise funds to expand amenities at the dog park. There will also be train rides available to take customers either from the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario (RMEO) to the com-

munity centre or vice versa and back again. “The first ride will start at 10:30 a.m. at the community centre just west of the parking lot, but there’ll be plenty of signage,” said Anne Shropshire, museum curator. At the museum a slew of children’s activities are planned for the day and hopefully some model railways layouts according to Shropshire. “The museum tour for anyone that wants it will be a behind the scenes guided tour, including the dental car exhibit, running on the hour every hour starting at 10:30 a.m. with the last tour starting at 3:30 p.m.,” said Shropshire. Tickets for the train rides will cost $5 round trip and can be purchased either at the museum or in the lobby of the community centre. “The train will consist of an early 1950 diesel locomotive, made in Montreal by the Montreal Locomotive Works, pulling a single

caboose that can accommodate 14 passengers at a time,” said Humphrey, doubling as locomotive engineer. Admission to the railway museum will be free on May 3 and 4. The train rides are a fundraiser for the RMEO while some proceeds from the home show will go towards a proposed stage planned for Centennial Park. “The idea for the stage was to build it out of a set of lock gates and Park Canada has already approved the plan so we just have to collect enough money to get it done,” said Quinn. The proposed stage would be used to host movies, outdoor plays and music in the park throughout the summer, according to Quinn. The Smiths Falls Home and Living Show will run from Saturday May 3, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday May 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission is free.

District Club for Youth The District Club for Youth made a presentation with regard to space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to highlight our need for a better space for our staff and clients,â&#x20AC;? said Len McGregor, youth board president. According to McGregor, the building the youth are in right now has already undergone extensive renovations but now needs far more invasive renovations that would cost upwards of $40,000. While the youth group admits thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not astronomical they would prefer to find a more suitable space in which to invest. The current space is cramped and not ideal for the youth groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programming. The group currently has 289 members from the community, and after some research, they would like the town to consider turning over the banquet hall at the youth arena to their use. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The upper room of the youth arena would be our choice for relocation, as it gives the right type of exposure and accessibility for our needs. It has the washrooms and a kitchen and is a much larger area than we are currently working with,â&#x20AC;? said McGregor. The proposal from the youth group would be to return the $10,000 grant the town gave them in return for using that space. The group said they had looked at other location mostly storefronts but had found the costs too high. The response from council was hesi-

tant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have given us a lot to think about. When I talked to staff about your proposal they were not sure we can make it work,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Dawn Quinn. Meanwhile Coun. Jay Brennan, along with Coun. Shawn Pankow, sit on the board of the youth group seemed more inclined to find another space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The club has been moving in a positive direction and our goal is to serve as many youth as we possibly can. I recognize that the space youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in is not in the best shape, although aesthetically its much better than it used to be â&#x20AC;&#x201C; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve brought us a lot of things to think about and going forward if we can find a better spotâ&#x20AC;Ś,â&#x20AC;? said Brennan. Coun. Ken Graham was more blunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is not one size fits all for clubs for youth, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to look at what other models for space there are out there, but

I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t favour the Youth Arena as a suitable space,â&#x20AC;? said Graham. In the end, Pankow told the delegation that council would take the youth groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferences and comments into account and would get back to them in due course. At this stage it was decided to move a few of the priority issues forward ahead of an in-camera session, so that member in the gallery who were waiting to address council could leave if they needed to.

The Hub has received word from Montague council that there may be a $6,000 contribution from that township but the figure cannot be confirmed until Montague passes its budget. Council members assured HudsonCraig that they felt strongly about the importance of the pool without a doubt and asked how much the Hub was seeking in assistance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a figure, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just looking for you to give as much as you can,â&#x20AC;? said Hudson-Craig.

The HUB Lori Hudson-Craig the new co-chair of the Hub, addressed council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are asking for a little more assistance, because it was a really hard winter for us,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking at new revenue streams.â&#x20AC;?

The Station Theatre A new contract with the theatre group has been drawn up whereby the theatre group will pay the town a rental fee for the use of the Station Theatre building. The annual rent under this agreement will be $10,000 as of January, 2014.

Chip wagons Council had a brief discussion regarding an increase in chip wagon fees for the 2014 season. At the last meeting it had been suggested that input from both the Smiths Falls Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Business Association on this issue would be very useful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to the chamber of commerce meeting last week and they support the increase to $500, they also support having chip wagons in town,â&#x20AC;? said Brennan. Meanwhile, Pankow had approached the DBA and reported that they were in favour of the increase but did not favour an additional fee for the downtown area unless it was on municipal property.

In the end it was decided that the fees for 2014 would increase from $350 for the season to $500. The increase will be applied to all applications as of now.

Since then it’s been back and forth before council with the question do we demolish or repurpose the building,” explained Pankow. Although divided, each councillor held a very clear position. “It was purchased for the purpose of demolishing it to clean up that corner – I continue to support tearing the building down as staff has recommended. “Since then I have had the opportunity to go through it, and I’m still of the opinion it should be torn down – though I recognize that there is moulding and flooring that could be used by

Lorraine Allan who said she was in favour of selling the building to recoup costs instead, echoing Quinn’s position. In the end a vote was taken and four councillors voted for demolition, three against.

Caring school grows virtual gardens for Canadian Cancer Society Community - There are virtual gardens popping up all over Montague Public School this spring. The gardens are Cancer Society Posters with sticker daffodils that the children add on as they donate funds. “As the students bring in a donation, they can identify who they are giving the donation in honour of, or in memory of, and we put that name on the sticker that goes on the poster,” explained Judy Hermer, Montague Public School office administrator.

“We’ve done lots of drives before and it’s fun for the young kids because they get to see their garden grow.” SPENCER BOISVENUE MONTAGUE STUDENT

The cancer fundraising drive is near and dear to the school, because just last fall the disease claimed the life of a staff member. “Ruby Gifford was a supply educational assistant, and she was a long time resident of Montague Township and she passed away in the fall from lung cancer though she’d never smoked,” Hermer told The Record News. The student council, made up of Grade 8 students, is running the entire

initiative. They chose the cancer society for their fundraiser because they felt it would resonate with other students. “A lot of kids have had experience with family members or friends that have had cancer so they feel they can relate more,” said Molly Leach, student councillor. In the first week of the two-week campaign the students had collected $268 with more coming in every day. “The students have been pretty happy about the idea. “I’m the ambassador to the Grade 3 class and because they’re so young, they’re excited to raise money to help others,” said Valerie Brown, student council member. There’s also the fun of seeing the posters change each day. “We’ve done lots of drives before and it’s fun for the young kids because they get to see the garden grow,” said Spencer Boisvenue, student councillor. According to the councillors the entire school has been happy to jump on board and they’re not surprised at the positive response. “I think our school reacted so well because we’re a really caring school and we always have drives to help people in our community,” said Brown. In March, the school collected teddy bears for the firefighters to give children whose homes had been lost. “And earlier we collected Canadian Tire Money for LAWS,” said Maria Campbell, student councillor.

The students didn’t set a goal for their fundraising and are just taking it one dollar at a time. “We didn’t set a goal because any

amount helps families that have been Boisvenue. affected, because cancer hurts not just The drive was from April 1 to 16 and the one person, but the family and ev- the Cancer Society is wrapping up the eryone around them emotionally,” said virtual garden campaign on April 17.

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - April 14. 1914 Temporary Passenger Service In response to numerous requests from the travelling public for some accommodation over the recently completed Canadian Northern line between Napanee and Ottawa, the company is operating a passenger coach on freight trains No. 93 and 94 which leaves Smiths Falls going east at one o’clock, arriving in Ottawa at 4:00 p.m.; returning, leaves Ottawa at 9:00 a.m. arriving Smiths Falls at one o’clock p.m. This service is daily except Mondays and began on Thursday the 9th just. Details of the full passenger service may be obtained from any C.N.R. agent. The temporary service will prove a great convenience to those residing at intermediate points and to the general public. 50 YEARS AGO - April 16, 1964 Nazi propaganda is sent to residents Some of the most vile and insidious literature ever to be seen within the confines of the free world is infiltrating Smiths Falls. Known as “hate” literature it is the work of the American Nazi Party whose leader is Lincoln Rockwell and the Canadian Nazi Party, whose head is unknown. In recent weeks, similar literature has been distributed in the Toronto area, and it was learned Tuesday that it is also being mailed to certain residents in Smiths Falls - entirely unsolicited. 25 YEARS AGO - April 12, 1989 Cancer causing gas found in town home There could be a tasteless, colourless, odourless intruder in your home. The culprit, radon gas, is a natural creation from the breakdown of uranium in the soil. And according to Barry Reddie, of Radon Analysis of Ottawa-Carleton, Smiths Falls could be a hotbed of the potentially deadly gas. Radon has been linked to black lung disease, according to Mr. Reddie, who said one house which he tested in town had a concentration of radon with the potential health effect equal to smoking two-and-ahalf packs of cigarettes a day, or having 1,000 chest x-rays per year. 10 YEARS AGO - April 21, 2004 Rally brings Skills & Initiatives message to downtown streets They rallied not to protest — but to thank the community of Smiths Falls. Volunteers, staff and supporters of Skills and Initiatives Projects took their message to the streets prior to Monday’s town council meeting. More than 30 people carried placards and chanted the slogan “Hey, hey, ho, ho, c’mon Queen’s Park”, designed to thank the town for its support over the years and to convince the provincial government to provide sustainable funding to the program. Skills and Initiatives, which works hand in hand with the Ontario Works program, providing volunteers with valuable work experience, also works as the umbrella organization for several key endeavours in and around Smiths Falls including Soup’s On, Central Public Action & Resource Centre, Dental Care for All and more.

Remember When In November 1971, a faulty ballast in a fluorescent light in The Style Shoppe ignited a blaze that consumed a block along Beckwith Street between William and Main streets, and caused an estimated $1 million damage. It gutted five stores, several other businesses, and left six people homeless. More than 100 firefighters from 12 area departments

spent eight hours fighting the fire. Photo courtesy of the Heritage House Museum image collection. To attain a copy, please call: 613-283-6311. If you have an old photograph to share, please email it to ljweir@metroland.com or by mail it to PO Box 158, 65 Lorne St., Smiths Falls, K7A 4T1.

Go Bears Go! The excitement of playoffs

I

’ve had the pleasure of taking in almost every Friday night home game of the Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears this year. I’ve seen just about every team in action in the CCHL and have watched a few games in Carleton Place this year as well. If you haven’t been out to a game yet, what’s the hold up? You are missing some of the best hockey still going on. And admit it, if you’re a Leafs or Sens fan, you may not be ready to give up on the season yet, albeit at a different level. (Yes, the Canadiens are still in it, but I digress. My friend Marty is probably whooping it up.) It’s been a sweet ride this season for the Lanark County teams: the Bears and the Carleton Place Canadians. Both are at the top of their games as they play it out for the Bogart Cup en route to the Fred Page Cup later this month. What’s even better is that these two teams have been filling their respective arenas as fans are jockeying to get seats in the 1,000-plus barns. I haven’t seen crowds like these since my days in the mid-1990s watching junior B hock-

LAURIE WEIR Weir View ey in Morrisburg. Back in the Casselman days of 1993-95 when the boys won their conference titles – a hat trick of them. There was standing room only, and from the fans in the infamous whiskey row, there were countless of rubber chickens flying from the seats. Oh, those were the days, when my niece, Mandy, rode shotgun to the games and we snuck in the peach schnapps - unofficially, I wasn’t actually drinking on the job, just hanging out and watching hockey. Trying to keep warm in a barn where there wasn’t a lot of heat to be felt. This year has been a great season to watch some CCHL action at its finest. The quarterfinal series saw the Bears sweep the Nepean

Raiders. Their next bout was a seven-game battle with the Ottawa Junior Senators. The boys just seem to get better with time; considering most of the bench was new this year, what a great team under the tutelage of Mark Grady, Walt Dubas and Rob Dobson, this young squad has turned out to be. Finishing second overall in their league, the Bears have given their fans something to be proud of, and they are keeping that spirit alive in their final series against the Carleton Place Canadians. Despite a 5-2 loss in Game 1 in Carleton Place Sunday afternoon, and being outshot 4019, they will continue through to Friday at least with one final home game of the season - Game 4 on Friday at 7:30 p.m. I’d like to see at least a Game 5, or 6, or maybe even 7. Let’s fill that 1,500-seat arena and show both these teams the support they have so rightfully earned this season. Regardless of which team wins the Bogart Cup, know that this county is well represented. Good luck boys, and stay out of the penalty box.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Careful consideration needed to refill or shift RL CAO leadership position scription, consider restructuring and look for opportunities to streamline and reduce administrative costs. Is there an internal manager that, with a shift in duties, could take over? Is there potential for positions to be merged? Is the status quo organization chart still the best use of our salary dollars? The township’s longstanding clerk is also due to retire this year. Many mid-size municipalities operate with an administrator/clerk as their senior staff position. This is supported by a strong deputy clerk to help carry out some of the statutory duties. 2014 is an election year and there has already been considerable turnover in area senior municipal staff, Frontenac County and Smiths Falls being

just two examples. Lanark County has also recently realigned and restructured its senior staffing. More will follow after the elections as new councils look to establish their team. Future councils will need strong administrative leadership. The Rideau Lakes budget will soon be finalized and other critical issues appear to be under control. The synergy between a CAO, mayor and council is critical. As such, an interim solution to Mr. Maddocks’ departure may be Rideau Lakes’ best option.

Keeping children out of the stress and mess of divorce help? “I hear back, ‘Oh, I would totally be there for them,’” said Gaumont. Open Doors runs counselling services, with a separation/divorce children’s group in Smiths Falls, Carleton Place, and Perth, for children aged eight to 12. There is also a same-day clinic in Almonte and Lanark, on Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m. in Almonte, and from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Lanark on Tuesdays. “We are flexible,” said Wynn. “It (the groups) really normalize feelings.” However, there is a wait list for counselling services, though “it is not very long right now. Typically about a month,” said Gaumont. The Open Doors offices can be reached at: Carleton Place, 40 Bennett St., 613-257-8260 Smiths Falls, 88 Cornelia St. W., 613-283-8260 Perth, 40 Sunset Blvd., Suite 123, 613-264-1415

For any divorce there is an adjustment period of between 18 months to two years, and “it is a time of loss,” said Wynn. But parents cannot afford to lose sight of one of the most important messages they need to keep telling their children – which bears constant repeating, if necessary. “The truth they need to know is the central truth, which can be, ‘Mom and Dad don’t live together any more. They can’t get along any more,’” said Cheryl Gaumont, a fellow counsellor at Open Doors, during her portion of the presentation entitled “Separation and Divorce: Minimizing the Impact.” “Tell the truth, age appropriately,” said Gaumont. “Tell it over and over. They need it hear it… (that) you both love them permanently, and unconditionally.” Children can pick up that there will be changes, but make it clear what will be changing, and what will stay the same. They may need to move house, but their activities, like ballet or hockey, will stay the same, for example. The counselling duo also encouraged parents to avoid blaming the other, at least in front of their children, and to try to present a united front. Planning conversations

Cheryl Gaumont, left, and Jessie Wynn, both counselors at Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth, discuss the “Circle of Truth,” at The Stewart School in Perth on April 9, about “Separation and Divorce: Minimizing the Impact.” out ahead of time can also be helpful, as can showing restraint. “Your children don’t need to know all of the details about the other parents’ behaviour,” said Gaumont. “We’ve all heard it said before. If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all,” and, if emotions are getting the better of you, take it elsewhere. For the sake of the children, and even ones sanity, a working relationship needs to be maintained, even if the relationship has run its course. “Your romantic relationship may have ended, but you will be co-parents for the rest of your lives,” said Gaumont. Blaming the other parent is also counterproductive to helping the child. It may be cathartic for you, but sends a negative message to the child: “If that is true of one parent, is that true of me?” the child will think, according to Gaumont. “Children see themselves as coming from each of the parents.” Another lesson that the two women stressed was that children need to hear that they are “in no way (to) blame for the separation,” said Gaumont. This is important to stress since “children tend to feel like it is their fault,” using the child’s logic that “if my parents can stop loving each other, can they stop loving me?” Another hot button issue is when parents recruit their children to act as spies, when they are at the other parent’s house, to relay information on everything from dinner to bed times, to the former partners new romantic interests. “Asking them to be a spy is asking them to betray the other parent,” said Gaumont. “You can only control your environment… you can only control the rules at your house.”

Parents, either alone or together, can help their children through the process by doing things like: Initiating conversations; Helping them put their feelings into words; Offering support; Making clear and predictable arrangements; and, Foster and encourage your child’s relationship with their other parent. At different ages, children will react differently to the major life change being imposed on them. Their emotions can run the gamut from anger, mild depression, to loyalty to the parent they are with at the moment. “It will take them time to adjust, but they will adjust,” said Gaumont. For parents, while trying to navigate the legal and emotional thicket that is the divorce process, they also have to contend with their children’s reactions – including evidence that negative interactions with parents tend to go up 300 per cent during this period. “ “That will subside,” said Gaumont. As parents seek to re-start their lives anew, a new partner may enter the scene. While keeping your new love a secret from your family might not be a good idea in the long term, the duo advised waiting about six months after a separation before introducing someone new into their lives, as there is enough change to go around for everyone. Also, for a parent, do not be afraid to seek our support for yourself, too. To this, they often hear parents say, “I don’t want to burden other people.” But Wynn and Gaumont then turn this statement on its head. “What would happen if a friend or a family member came to you” seeking

News – News of a divorce is scary enough for children, but it is the fallout from the announcement that, if not handled properly, can have the deepest impact. “It is not actually the parents separating that causes the stress,” said Jessie Wynn, a counselor at Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth, based in Carleton Place. She was speaking at The Stewart School on Wednesday, April 4. “It is the ongoing conflict between parents.” While noting that “children are remarkably resilient,” they are also not immune to the emotional turmoil that their parents are going through. In talking with children whose parents are going through, or have gone through, a divorce, experts distilled the reactions of the children into a list of things children want their parents to know: We love and need both of you. We are not your messengers. We know you are hurting. So are we. We know you are doing the best you can. So are we. Please do not run down our other parent. It makes us feel bad. Please don’t ask us to choose sides. It’s not fair. Don’t make us feel spoiled for spending time with the other parent. It may not have been your choice to divorce, but it is not our choice either. Don’t make us the man or woman of the house. We are just kids.

OBITUARY

OBITUARY

CROZIER James Feb.9, 1929 - April 12,2014 Jim passed away peacefully this morning at Lanark Lodge, Perth, Ontario. Born in Toronto, Ontario to William (absent in Scotland) and Catherine Crozier, Jim grew up in Cabbagetown where he was raised by his mother with the help of Billy and Millie Orr. He is survived by his former wife, Mary Faith (Campbell) Crozier and his sons and their families: Larry (son) and Jo-ann (Gibb) Crozier, Wm. Rusty (son) and Sandy (Creed) Crozier. His grandchildren are Shawn and Lisa Crozier (great-granddaughter Isla); Jesse and Crystal (Crozier) Bischoff; Christopher Crozier and Juliette Hennequin (greatgranddaughter Madeleine); Max and Katie (Crozier) Gironne. Jim is predeceased by a son, James Knox Crozier. Jim worked in many fields over his 85 years. Some of his work record included stints in the Canadian army and air force (1 Fighter Wing, Marville, France), owning his own store and gas station, Administrator for Metropolitan Toronto Police Services, Pastor, Social worker in Halifax, Commissioner of Social Services in the Region of Peel, and Vice President of the World Council of Social Welfare. Thanks go out to the many people who befriended and helped care for Jim in his time in Perth. A special thanks to the staff at every level of care in Lanark Lodge and the Great War Memorial Hospital, Perth. Most of you will have laughed and shaken your head when you received one of his many letters to someone about something. Well, the paper is put away, and the pens are all in the drawer. Thanks be to the God who made him and who now will help him sort out his life once and for all in peace (something he struggled to do for most of his life). There will be a gathering for friends and family Monday, April 21 at 10am at the home of Rusty and Sandy Crozier, 5278th Concession, Westport, Ontario.

NOLAN, Maud – In memory of our Mom who passed away April 18, 2013. Our lives go on without you, But nothing is the same, We have to hide our heartache, When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that love you, Silent are the tears that fall, Living without you is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us, Your heart was so kind and true, And when we needed someone, We could always count on you. The special years will not return, When we are all together, But with the love in our hearts, You walk with us forever. Lovingly rememembered Your kids Pratt, Helen - In loving memory of my devoted wife, our loving mother and cherished grandmother who passed away April 16, 1997. God made a wife So loving and kind And I had the honour of calling her mine. I miss you more than anyone knows, As each day passes the emptiness grows. Gone are the days we used to share But in my heart you are always there. Sadly missed and forever in our hearts. Husband Ron and family

SAUNDERS - In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, Glen, who passed away April 15, 1990. Your end came fast and sudden, No time to say, “Good-Bye” You were gone before we realized, And only God knows why. The things we felt so dearly, Are the hardest things to say But we know your memory, Will never fade away. Sadly missed, And lovingly Remembered by Wife Jean and Family

DAVIS, Glenna H. (Lancaster) C.W.A.C. – April 23, 2002. In God we trust. God alone knows how much we miss her. Husband Bruce and family

Shannon- In loving memory of a dear father, grandfather & great grandfather Bernard Shannon, who passed away April 23, 2011. Thou his smile is gone forever, and his hand we cannot touch. We have so many memories of the one we loved so much. His memory is our keepsake with which we will never part. God has him in his keeping, We have him in our hearts. Sadly missed and always remembered by Nancy, Jody, Colleen & Darleen & Grandchildren & GreatGrandchildren.

IN MEMORIAM

DILLABAUGH - In memory of Grace Beatrice Dillabaugh nee Munro who entered into Heaven April 17th, 2013. Where did you go when you went away Did you stand over us as we grieved that day Did you hold our hand as we said goodbye Did you try to comfort us as we stood there and cried Do you watch over us still as we try to carry on Enjoy the sun set with us and the break of dawn Do you see our tears when we think we’re alone It has been a year now since you’ve been gone Do you know how much we miss you do you know our pain Since you left us things haven’t been the same We miss your hugs your smiles your caring ways Where did you go when you went away Are you among the clouds or somewhere higher Do you sing with the angels in God’s Heavenly Choir Are you reunited with loved ones who have gone on before Were there welcoming arms when you arrived at the door Are you standing out there somewhere just beyond our sight Are you one of the stars twinkling in the night Where did you go when you went away I guess we won’t know ‘til we get there someday Forever loved Cathy, Wayne and families

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

Community – Students at Willis College held a fundraising initiative last month to raise money for the Salvation Army and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County. The group raised $500 which was matched by Willis College. A total of $750 was donated to the Salvation Army to send two children to camp, while $250 was donated to BBBS. Campus vice president Chris Bissylas, (right) said it was a great opportunity for the students to feel a part of their community with their ability to give back during the fundraiser. “We’re proud that staff and students can contribute to the community – it’s something that Willis College is very conscious of – trying to instill that in our students.” Pictured are campus manager Ann Knowlton, student Caroline Harity, admissions consultant Shannon Lever, Major Faith Cameron, student Sylvia Pudsey, campus VP Bissylas. BBBS received its donation earlier in the year.

Father and son travel to Kenya, come home feeling deeply changed By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - It’s not every teenager that gets to go to Kenya, Africa for March break, but that’s exactly what Joshua Birley did this year and he says it’s changed a lot of things for him. “It was very strange – like kids there have to pay for all their schooling and it made me realize how much we take for granted. It was quite incredible, but the people were incredibly happy and just try to make do with what they have – they made us feel like superstars,” said Joshua Birley, a Grade 9 student at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute. Josh had the opportunity to go to Kenya because his dad, Pastor Paul Birley had been invited to teach a course at the Pentecostal Bible College in Kenya. The invitation came from a former colleague of Pastor Birley’s, who had gone to Kenya on mission and has now been there for six years. So when Pastor Michael Middlebrook, now the academic dean of the college, extended an invitation, Paul was thrilled to take part in the mission and saw it as an opportunity to broaden his eldest son’s horizons. “It’s an intensive 20-hour course, and Joshua was with me in the classroom and would get involved in group discussions that happened as part of the course,” said the pastor.

Josh’s skill on the keyboard also came in handy and father and son shared some of their music with the students. The Canadian duo spent nine days in Kenya, as Middlebrook’s guests and most of their interactions with the Kenyan population were through the students at the college. “We had 32 students in our class and by the end of the week they wanted Josh to stay,” the pastor said. Perhaps the nature of the interaction through religious studies brought everyone closer more quickly. “They would talk about life in Kenya and I would talk about life in Canada and we were mutually blown away by the differences,” said Josh who plays basketball and football at SFDCI. The Birleys saw how much average Kenyans struggle just to get through each day. “We saw real poverty; there was a 70-year-old grandmother who was raising four young children. There was a kid who had malaria in one of our classes. To see how hard they struggle and yet how full of life they are – someone would lead a song and then everyone would join in spontaneously,” said Josh. The Birleys said they came back from their trip both encouraged and renewed. “It did something to our hearts, and I wanted Josh to see that and experience it,” said Paul.

Both said they were deeply encouraged to see that it’s not only Canada where churches are still being built. “It made me realize that I shouldn’t take stuff for granted – they have way less than I do – so I’ve learned to live with what I have. The experience taught me to be a better person… to use them as an example. They are kind and cheerful,” said Josh. If the people impressed him, the landscape and the wildlife just blew him away. “I was sitting in the living room playing with my iPad, and a monkey just walked by, so I got up to get a better look and there were 10 more monkeys,” laughs Josh. When he told the other students at the college about his monkey sightings they reacted in much the way he might have reacted if someone here said they’d seen a squirrel in Canada. “When I explained to them that there weren’t any monkeys in Canada they were really shocked,” said Josh. The short trip certainly had a huge impression on the young man and one that he’d like to share with the rest of his family. “I would definitely go back to see all the friends I made and to see the nature again,” Josh said, “do some good work and to be more encouraged and more changed and bring the whole family there as well.”

Sports - The Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears are heading to Carleton Place tonight (April 17) down 2-0 in their Central Canadian Hockey League Bogart Cup final series against the Canadians. Tuesday, the Bears packed the den with more than 1,500 fans but fell 4-2 in Game 2. The home team got into some penalty trouble in the second period allowing for two power play goals plus a third marker as the Canadians ramped it up after a scoreless first period. Craig Pefley was the first to score as he got by Michael Pinios, who has been in nets for the first two games of the series. Pefley, assisted by Anthony Latina and Dylan Gareau, scored on the power play at the 11:27 mark. Latina had the Canadians’ second marker when he scored just two minutes later with help from Stephen Baylis and Owen Stewart. The Canadians’ third of the period was another power play goal, this one from Evan Peterson. Brett D’Andrea and Andy Sturtz were credited with assists on the goal that came in the final minute of the stanza. In the third, the Bears got on the board when

Neil Doef got past Canadians netminder, Guillaume Therien with 13:19 on the clock. He was assisted by Nicolas Coates and Brandon Lesway. A second goal from Smiths Falls just 1:10 later was scored by Brandon McMartin, with help from Lesway and Taylor Henry. With time running out in the game, the Bears opted for a sixth shooter and Pinios took the bench, which resulted in an empty-netter by the Canadians’ Sturtz. He was assisted by Larry Smith at 19:24. The Canadians were assessed with 22 minutes in penalties on seven infractions, while Smiths Falls was hit with seven minors. Stars of the game were Devin Campbell, and Sturtz for Carleton Place and Doef for Smiths Falls.

In 2011 a Canadian racer made soap box derby history. Makayla Laughlin of Peterborough Ontario became the first International Region and Canadian Derby Champion to ever make the finals at the World Championships. Makayla finished second in the World Stock finals winning a $2,000 college scholarship. Only champions make it to the “Greatest Amateur Racing Event in the World” and one of those champions will come from the event in Smiths Falls this August.

Smiths Falls to host bigger more focused soapbox derby in August Sports - Smiths Falls has been officially licensed by the First Energy All American Soap Box Derby as a New Race Community. The community will not only play host to the Annual Gravity Grand Prix but also the Eastern Ontario Stock Championships. On Aug. 10, Beckwith Street will once again become a gravity drag strip, and four different classes of cars will compete in the Gravity Grand Prix, as racers vying for a shot at the World Championships will be piloting their stock class cars down the track with one goal in mind – to win the Eastern Ontario All American Soap Box Derby Stock Championships and the opportunity to represent the community and Canada at the World Derby Championships in Akron Ohio. The Eastern Ontario Stock Championships is a licensed event that will operate under the guidance of the Canadian All American Soap Box Derby program. As the only stock local the event in Smiths Falls will attract racers and their families to the town for the August event from a broad swath of the province and even Quebec. The Stock class features official All American cars, built from kits. The racers will range in age between seven and 13 years.

This is the first time in Smiths Falls soap box derby history that such an event has ever been held. The winner of the Eastern Ontario Stock Championships will gain an invitation to the 2015 First Energy All American Soap Box Derby World Championships. Race Directors Marshall Cubitt and Steve Wintle have been working on planning for this event for many months. With the support of a number of local organizations and businesses they have been able to apply for and receive a license to host a Local SBD Championship for the All American SBD. Smiths Falls will join other Canadian communities as part of Team Canada and as part of the International Region. Gatineau Quebec, Drummond New Brunswick, St. John New Brunswick, and Tyne Valley PEI are other Canadian communities hosting official events. As part of the International Region, Smiths Falls and its Canadian counterparts will join champs from Germany, New Zealand and Japan and champions from other Regions in the All American Soap Box Derby program from across the United States. Over 500 champions will gather in Akron for a week of activities that culminates with the World Championship Race.

The Upper Canada Cup intermediate girls basketball tournament took place on Friday, April 4 at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute. In the end it was the Thousand Islands Intermediate Secondary School who won against the Char-Lan Crusaders thanks to a buzzer beater from Maddy Nowlan. Shown here TISS’s Olivia Hough gets defended by Char-Lan’s Alyssa Deamer.

TISS earns Upper Canada Cup for girls basketball Sports - It was a seesaw battle on the court April 4 that ended with a buzzer beater. In the dying second of the Upper Canada Cup Intermediate Girls’ Basketball Championship at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute, Thousand Islands Secondary School (TISS) forward Maddy Nowlan tossed a running shot from 12 feet out to carry her team to a 26-24 victory over CharLan District High School. “The difference was really the dedication of our players,” said TISS Pirates coach Scott Tedford. “The girls worked really hard and never gave up.” The Pirates also persevered through a greater depth on the bench. Seven Pirates scored during the two, 20-minute periods, compared to three for the Char-Lan Crusaders. Nowlan’s shot ended a nail-biter in which the lead tipped back and throughout the game, many times down to a single point. In fact, the Crusaders were up by two points 24-22 after guard Andrea Chaddock drew a foul and sunk two with 43 seconds left.

Monday, April 28, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 30, 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

TISS point guard Meredith O’Connor quickly responded to tie the game on the edge of overtime, setting the stage for Nowlan’s eventual winner. While Char-Lan narrowly lost, the team put up a great effort, led by Chaddock, who sunk seven baskets and added another six foul shots earning 20 of the team’s 24 points. The Upper Canada Cup Championships are special athletic events organized by the Upper Canada District School Board to give its students greater athletic opportunities in a variety of sports. In semi-final action, TISS defeated Rideau District High School, 20-8, and Char-Lan won against Rowthwell-Osnabruck, 37-28. In Pool A play, TISS beat Almonte, 31-27; Char-Lan won over Almonte, 20-16 and TISS defeated Char-Lan, 24-33.

Franktown celebrates decade running event By CONNER SCHAEFFER

Sports - The 10th annual ‘Where’s Franktown?’ Run, presented by the Calvary Christian Academy (CCA) is scheduled to take place Saturday May 10. The event began at the CCA to promote student health and physical activity but quickly turned into a community event after the school decided to invite local people to participate. Every year the run continues to grow, last year about 500 runners participated and this year it is hoped that number will increase. “We have runners of all ages, from two-year-old kids in the 1km event to 70-year-old men,” said Tom Bourne, principal at CAA Runners from all over attend the Franktown run. People come from Toronto, Montreal, Kingston and the Ottawa area. One of Ottawa’s top triathletes, Bruce McNicoll has promoted the run by saying, “What a wonderful event! Warm hospitality, a variety of fast, accurate courses, very cool awards, and the absolute best post-race food ever! Two thumbs way up for Where’s Franktown.” The event offers four races and four scenic flat routes that are perfect for runners to attempt their personal best times. The 1km event is a family fun walk/ run that starts beside the CCA property on Irvine Road at 9:30 a.m. The 5km, 10km and 15km all start and finish on Church Street

in Franktown. These longer events will be run on back country roads throughout the scenic Franktown countryside. The 15k will start at 9:30 a.m., the 10k run will follow at 10 a.m., and the last race, the 5k will begin at 10:10 a.m. “The event should wrap up around 11 a.m., awards will be given out after all the races are complete,” said Bourne. The event is scheduled, rain or shine. The courses are well liked by all runners; the flat, well marked routes allow runners to attempt their personal best times. Water stations are available throughout all the courses and Champion Chip timing through Sportstats is available. “The event encourages runners from all ages to participate and all proceeds go to the CCA,” said Bourne. Bags and prizes are awarded to runners, and top prizes are awarded to the top finishers. After the races, everyone is invited to a huge barbecue. Registration fees are as follows: 15k ($50 adults, $30 youth); 10k and 5k ($35 adults and $20 youth); and one km ($10 adult and youth). People can register online at runningroom.com or calvaryca.ca, by mail, or in person at the school. An additional fee of $5 will apply to runners registering on race day for all races except the one km. The CCA run is a great way to spend an afternoon while promoting health and fitness. For more information contact the school at 613-283-5089. THE EMC - SF16 - Thursday, April 17, 2014

Theatre Night in Merrickville offers up naughty but nice comedy By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Arts – This year, Theatre Night in Merrickville is taking a slight departure from the its normal offerings and treating us to an adult play – no it’s not X rated but it does deal with X rated material. The play is Skin Flick by Norm Foster and it opens on Friday, April 25. “It’s adult humour and it speaks to the human condition – poignant in some spots and goofy in others,” said Bronwen McKnight, stage manager. It’s a delicate, kooky comedy about four innocent people who decide to make an adult film. With no experience their naiveté works for and against them as they navigate through their discomfort and occasional shock with the subject matter. In this play Foster tells the story through the main character of Rollie. A pleasant, regular guy, he’s also the omnipotent narrator breaking into asides to the audience about the play and even the playwright. “The cast is fantastic, and it was a hard choice because I had so many people come out for auditions,” said Maureen Overy, the play’s director. Veteran comedian Ann Hartry, whose relaxed and natural delivery leaves you wondering if you might be eavesdropping on a neighbour, plays the main character, Daphne Waters. Best of all she and all the cast members are clearly enjoying themselves. “Rehearsal has been a riot, we’re having a blast – it’s a lot of fun,” said Hartry. She’s joined on stage by Andrea Jermacans as the porn star and Michael Phillips a painfully shy bookie as the unlikely porn stud. “It’s a bit risqué, thankfully my male co-star is really sweet and easy going, our physical scenes are mostly slapstick but it’s all in fun and there’s

Left, focused on the action Peter Boire, as Alex Tratt kneeling with the camera (still to be sourced!) directs Andrea Jermacans as the would be porn star Jill, in a scene with Michael Phillips as Byron Hobbs, the ultra shy bookie who gets roped into becoming a porn actor in Theatre Night in Merrickville’s hilariously naughty production of Skin Flick by Norm Foster, which opens April 25. Above, Jermacans and Phillips rehearse a scene together. Photos by HOWAIDA SOROUR

no nudity – it’s just funny,” said Jermacans who plays Jill, the aspiring actress. While Jermacan is new to TNIM, she’s been honing her acting skills with the Osgood and Kemptville theatre groups. Meanwhile the last time Phillips ventured onto a stage he was a teenager, but as he point out he’s had lots of related experience since then. “I’ve taught and done customer service, which is basically acting!” said Phillips. “The rehearsals have been great. It’s a funny play, a bit awkward at times given the subject matter of the play – but it’s been fun,” he continued. The two other cast members, Al Billiald as Rollie Waters and Peter Boire as Alex Tratt, are both highly experienced TNIM favourites. “Peter is very generous on stage, really giving and being the perfect partner on stage – he’s very much a team player and he’s created this whole back story for his character as the camera man,” said McKnight. While the story does stretch the limits of plausibility, it also endeavors to explore the subjects of sex and marriage in a very positive way. The content of this play is definitely naughty in the nicest possible way, managing to skirt the sleazy side of porn thanks to Foster’s expert writing and Overy’s deft direction. “The atmosphere of rehearsals are electrically joyful, which bodes well for performance,” said McKnight. The play will be performed at the Merrickville Community Centre on Friday, April 25 at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 26 at 2 p.m. followed by a second performance on Saturday evening at 8 p.m. and closes on Sunday, April 27 with a matinée at 2 p.m. Tickets are available online at www.merrickvilletheatre.org or at Mrs. McGarrigles or the Village Bean on St. Lawrence Street in Merrickville.

BarnDoor Productions closes 19th season with award-winning comedy ment to moment. Real life married couple Chris and Kristy Angel play, surprise, a married couple! The Angels have appeared in BDP shows ranging from Virginia Woolf to Not Now, Darling to A Midsummer Nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dream. Opposite them are BDP veteran Karen Bernique (Mister Chase and Maggieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Getting Married) and Don MacKay (The Cricket On The Hearth, Rehearsed), who is stepping into his first major role. There are plenty of laughs in the play, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a typical farce. Instead, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a play of relationships and people and the humour comes from the fact that none of us really understand ourselves. Playwright Reza (who has won three Molière Awards, the French equivalent of the Tony, two Tonys and two Oliviers for Best Play) gives us the chance to watch her characters unravel themselves, bit by bit, despite their own best efforts and belief in â&#x20AC;&#x153;civilizedâ&#x20AC;? behaviour. In the end, she shows that people are still the funniest things on the planet, in many ways. While God of Carnage closes the winter season for Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original community theatre, the group will be back for the summer season with two classic shows: the Victorian thriller Gaslight will run June 13 to 22 and the outrageous 1670s farce The Country Wife will run July 25 to Aug. 10. All of that leads up to BarnDoor Productionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 20th anniversary season, filled with some of the most exciting and evocative plays in the region, culminating at this time next year with â&#x20AC;&#x153;the little theatre that couldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? 100th production! God of Carnage runs April 25, 26, May 1, 2, 3 at 8:00 p.m. and April 27 and May 4 at 2 p.m. at the Full Circle Theatre (26 Craig Street, Perth) by Last Duel Park. Tickets are $20 reserved or $22 at the door, with students just $10. To reserve simply call 613-267-1884. No credit cards are required; simply bring cash to the theatre. Further information is online at www.barndoorproductions.ca. Submitted by BarnDoor Productions.

Guitarist Isaac Matthews impressed the crowd with a fiery display of fingerpicked guitar skills last week as eight talented local young people displayed their musical talent â&#x20AC;&#x153;Live @ Full Circle Theatreâ&#x20AC;?. Next week, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back to live theatre with God of Carnage at Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only ground-level, barrier-free theatre. Submitted photo

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The last two months have been filled with events at Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Full Circle Theatre, from highschool drama to professional storytelling to international film to music from both touring professionals and up-and-coming local talent. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all leading up to the finale of BarnDoor Productions (BDP) 19th season, as the Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original community theatre will present their 93rd production, beginning April 25, with the Tony and Olivier Award-winning version of Yasmina Rezaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brilliant comedy God of Carnage at the ground-level, barrier-free theatre. A season that began last October with a production of the longest running Broadway play of the 2000s (The 39 Steps) is finishing with the second longest-running. Originally written in French and premiered in France in 2006, the play was translated into English by Christopher Hampton and debuted in 2008, receiving the highly prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Play. Brought to Broadway in 2009, the play started off in a a limited run, which was quickly turned into an open-ended one, running for nearly 500 performances and garnering four Tony nominations. It received the Tony Award for Best Play, as well as two other Tonys. For a comedy to win the best play Tony is rare; for one to win both the Tony and Olivier is unheard of. Controversial film director Roman Polanski turned it into an acclaimed movie in 2011, titled simply Carnage. The plot is simplicity itself: two school boys have had a fight and their parents meet to discuss the situation like civilized people. It turns out that people are not as civilized as they think they are. Under the deft directorial hand of BDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Janice Jacklin, who has directed such past BDP hits as Sleuth and Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and the Perth Community Choirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Wizard of Oz and Sweeney Todd, the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cast of four take their audience on a fast-paced, quirky and intense tour of the way the relationships among four people can change from mo-

Married couple Swing into Spring with big band extravaganza Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The myth that musical performers usually stick to their own kind â&#x20AC;&#x201C; trumpets only hang out with trombones or French horns, but not so much with those clarinets or violins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has been thoroughly demolished by Erin Morel-Rowe and Mike Rowe. The duo make beautiful music together both onstage and off as a recently married couple and the newest members of Standing Room Only (SRO), the big band which headlines the annual spring fundraising dance for the Classic Theatre Festival in Perth on Saturday, May 3. Swing into Spring, the annual gathering featuring what most consider the finest big band in eastern Ontario, will feature free dance lessons, a silent auction, and swinging renditions of tunes from the 1930s through the 1960s. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., with dance lessons at 7 p.m. at the Civitan Club, 6787 Highway 43 in Perth. Those who have attended the enjoyable annual event in the past â&#x20AC;&#x201C; either to dance or just to sit and tap their feet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will note some of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup changes, including tenor saxophone Erin Morel-Rowe. Having moved to this area last year from Sudbury, Erin first had a semesterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s replacement contract at PDCI and is currently a supply teacher in the Upper Canada District School Board, hoping to eventually land a full-time gig teaching music to high school students. In the meantime, her passion for playing led her to join a saxophone quartet in Almonte that featured Elizabeth Sampson (a founding member of Standing Room Only) and, eventually, to join

the big band. Along the way, she convinced SRO that a big band normally has four trumpet players and her husband Mike would make a perfect fourth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a saxophone player, jazz is my favourite music, and I learned it early through a fabulous music teacher in Sudbury,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playing with Standing Room Only is awesome, because I get to play my instrument every week.â&#x20AC;? Erin grew up in a musical family, with both parents playing in the Sudbury Community Band. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The turntable was always on, playing everyone from Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman to Colin James.â&#x20AC;? When she was in grade 7, her father started playing music from Big Band Spectacular, turning her on to a different sound while many of her contemporaries were jiving to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n Sync, Jennifer Lopez and Pink. She met her future husband, trumpet player Mike Rowe, at the age of 15. They dated for the following decade until they got married last summer, writing and arranging the music for their wedding. Their path took them together through the rest of high school and into the McMaster University music program, where Erin was inspired by the intensity of playing music every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the feeling of working with a group, because you can express yourself individually while still working in the context of a larger collection of players,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And big band music is so fun for us to play and audiences to dance to or just listen to. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy

to get distracted when you play for a dancing group because you see people having so much fun on the dance floor. I think a big reason this music is so popular is because it is so accessible: people quickly get it and they love it.â&#x20AC;? Mike grew up in a family where both parents were ministers, and at age 11, he joined the Salvation Army band, which is all brass. He began to learn more contemporary tunes in grade 8 from a teacher who also played in a Sudbury jazz band, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which pushed me into a wider spectrum of music.â&#x20AC;? While he honed his musical chops in high school, he got accepted into both the university physics and the music program; however, he chose music because the intensity of practice time in high school â&#x20AC;&#x153;made me realize how

much fun I had playing music, so this is what I wanted to do.â&#x20AC;? For Mike, playing in Standing Room Only â&#x20AC;&#x153;is great. In university, a lot of the music was more academic, with audiences who were there just to listen. With SRO, people know the songs, they are there to have fun, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy and excited, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win-win for everybody involved.â&#x20AC;? Like Erin, Mike loves the cohesiveness of playing in concert with others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are different feelings in different bands,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was principal trumpet in a 90 to 100 piece orchestra, but then you just work in your section and coordinate with the other section leaders.

My hair was thinning! For a long time Christie had wanted to do something extra for her hair. She felt it appeared dull and was thinning. Hair VolumeTM became her resource.

Read about Hair Volume™ Christie has worked in a pharmacy all her life. “Maybe that is why I was skeptical, when I first read about Hair Volume. I am always studying the declarations very carefully and there was something about this product,

which made me realize that it was special.”

Very positive experience “Today I have taken the Hair Volume tablets for 38 days and I can truly feel an improvement and less hair loss. My nails are also stronger and less grooved. All in all a very positive experience. I will definitely continue taking this product”, relates a happy Christie.

DID YOU KNOW? Grey hairs can begin to appear due to a lack of copper in your diet. Hair Volume™ tablets contain copper, which affects melanin production to help avoid grey hairs.

Paying tribute to one of Lanark County’s humblest country music legends, Harry Adrain Lifestyle – I arrived an hour early and still was just lucky to get one of the last seats. They just kept coming through the door, many carrying guitars and fiddles, all to show their appreciation and pay tribute to one of Lanark County’s humblest country music legends ... the one and only, Harry Adrain. This recognition of Harry’s musical gifts to the community was started by a comment made by Feryn Donaldson, widow of the late Raymie Donaldson during a tribute to Raymie held last year. She suggested people should be recognized while they were still with us and Terrie Bennett took this to heart and organized and hosted a memorable event at the Lanark Legion. As I listened to stories throughout the afternoon it became crystal clear how much people have enjoyed the musicianship offered by Harry and his friends over the years. He apparently was dragged out and encouraged by another Lanark legend, fiddler Kenny Jackson in about 1955, when they would play dances throughout the area...any hall that would have them. He’s been playing ever since. I’ve been in the area for 32 years now and Harry’s name has always been on one notice board or another, doing what he loves, as he says “just having fun.” I was told he was in a band in the late ‘60s called the Valley Cruisers

Friends and fellow musicians came together to pay tribute to Lanark County musician Harry Adrain recently at the Lanark Legion. Above, Harry, left, receives a token of appreciation and his wife, Eleanor, earned a #1 Fan award. Submitted photo

with Kenny Jackson on fiddle, Harry on guitar and vocal, Raymie Donaldson on lead guitar, and Gary Barr on rhythm and they played dances throughout the valley. They’d play three or so round dances and then Archie McNicol would call a square dance to packed halls in Westport, Watson’s Corners, McDonald’s Corners, Lanark, Perth, Smiths Falls, Clayton to name a few. They were apparently some wild times with sometimes as many pugilistic “dances” happening as musical ones. One of the things I’ve come to learn and appreciate as a Toronto-raised lad who didn’t grow up with country music is the strength and multigenerational support of it throughout this and surrounding regions. It’s like a ‘family’ of its own. Country shows sell out regularly, weekly jamborees happen, for example, throughout the area in Clayton, McDonald’s Corners, Smiths Falls and Perth and Har-

show their appreciation. Judi is also on the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame executive and managed to finally gain agreement from Harry to play at this year’s awards show. It was touching to hear young bucks like Henry Norwood and Brock McNamee acknowledge Harry’s ongoing support as they’ve developed their musical skills. Harry is a true family man. When his children Cheryl, Laurie and Debbie were young he stopped playing for awhile and every time I’ve seen him play I’ve heard him thank his number one fan, his loving wife of 55 years, Eleanor. Harry is from a large family, one of 14 kids and the incredibly large Adrain, Trainor, Norwood family reunions were legendary and saw music come from within the families. I’m always amazed how musicians can remember words and music to so many songs. A family friend tells of playing in

ry has been one of the many supporters of these for literally decades, no advertising necessary. Over and over I heard how he has been a host and facilitator at many events for what seems like forever. The monthly Old Time Fiddlers group at the Perth Legion is another example as well as the monthly birthday celebrations at Branch 244. He’s there, playing, “just for fun” as he says. His willingness to share the stage with whoever shows up and encourage those who are just starting out, along with his quiet, welcoming nature makes him a beneficial member of any group. At his recent tribute, it was evident by country players from out of our local area showing up to pay homage like Judi Moffatt and Barry Munro from Carleton Place, Johnny Spinks, Andy Bowes and Brad Scott of Almonte and I’m sure others, taking the time to be there to

the band with Harry at one of these reunions, starting at 7 p.m. and playing through until 9 a.m. the next morning, with Harry never singing the same song twice. Cheryl and Laurie are carrying on this musical family’s tradition, each in their own styles. On another proud note, three extended family members, Henry Norwood, Shawn McCullough and Riq Turner were all successful in making the first cut of this year’s CBC Searchlight Contest, the same contest Henry ended up in the final four nationally last year. Yes, there are strong musical roots there. They all thank Harry for his encouragement. From practically the first note, the dance floor was filled throughout the afternoon and they had lots to dance to. There’s not enough space to list them all but the Lanark Legion house band Country Cousins, started things off and Terrie Bennett’s band Stockyard replaced them, joined by Linda Derouin with some vocals, Heather Johnson on fiddle, Albert and Patty on vocals, Flora Riley on vocals and accordion and later, Wade Foster on fiddle. Of course, Harry couldn’t sit still and he was joined by his old fiddling friend Kenny Jackson, Ed Ashton on bass and Tom Uhryniw on drums, all players who’ve played for various lengths of time in Harry’s band. Harry was presented with a lovely, suitably inscribed plate saying “In

appreciation for sharing your musical talent with all of us – 2014” by Terrie Bennett and Eleanor received an inscribed “#1 Fan” gift. It truly was a memorable day, honouring a well deserved gentleman whose sharing of his musical gifts is defined by his statement “just having fun.” Congratulations, Harry Adrain. When CKCU announcer, Chopper McKinnon died, veteran singer/ songwriter Terry Tufts stated at one of his memorials he was tired of going to functions like this and suggested we start telling and sharing our appreciation of others with them, while they’re still with us. I totally agree and, thanks to Feryn Donaldson’s suggestion locally and the efforts of Terrie Bennett, I hope a new tradition has been started and we see many more of these events

honouring those amongst us, as there are lots of deserving folks who give much to our communities. Upcoming events May 3: Cure SMA at Little Rock Farm 2 to 10 p.m. This is a wonderful fundraiser for the whole family to raise funds and awareness about SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). There will be horse rides, a mechanical bull, a lovely country dinner, a pie eating contest, a silent auction and, best of all, a dance featuring Arlene Quinn, Wade Foster, Henry Norwood, Eddie and Andy Bowes, The Burnside Sisters and DJ Rob Orr. For more information, call Jenna at 613-285-5152. Come on out and support a very worthwhile cause. Support live music everywhere.

Join in Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Walk for Wildlife start collecting pledges, then head out to a local park, nature trail or conservation area and spend some in the wild. People can take part informally with family and friends or head out with a local organization by joining in one of the #Walk for Wildlife events listed on the website. For every pledge received, participants will become part of the CWF loyalty program and receive special rewards. Those who raise $100 or more will receive a special Burrowing owl Tshirt. Top fundraisers will have a chance to win a trip for two to Calgary for a special conservation experience at the Calgary Zoo. For those who just want to head outdoors for some quality time in nature, they can log their Walk for Wildlife on the interactive online map. “As Canadians, we are very fortunate to be surrounded by a rich diversity of wildlife. Sadly, many of the species that make up this diversity are at risk because of human and environmental pressures,” says Wade Luzny, chief executive officer and executive vice-president of the Canadian Wildlife Federation. “Walk for Wildlife is an opportunity to inspire and connect thousands of Canadians to nature and wildlife. And this year, we’re dedicating Walk for Wildlife to species at-risk, like the burrowing owl.”

About Walk for Wildlife Walk for Wildlife is a national campaign that encourages all Canadians to get outside and experience the wildlife and natural spaces in their backyards. From the beginning of National Wildlife Week on April 6 until the International Day for Biological Diversity on May 22, help CWF raise awareness and funds for species atrisk, like the burrowing owl. These species have found themselves on the endangered species list and under the protection of the Species at Risk Act (SARA) and need our help. About the Canadian Wildlife Federation The Canadian Wildlife Federation is a national not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to ensuring an appreciation of our natural world and a lasting legacy of healthy wildlife and habitat. By spreading knowledge of human impacts on the environment, developing and delivering educational programs, sponsoring research, promoting the sustainable use of natural resources, recommending policy changes and co-operating with likeminded partners, CWF encourages a future in which Canadians can live in harmony with nature.

Lifestyle – The Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) is hosting its fifth annual Walk for Wildlife. Kicking off during National Wildlife Week (April 6 to 12), the Walk For Wildlife campaign runs until International Day of Biodiversity, May 22 and gives people across the country an opportunity to show their support for conservation while making time to connect with nature themselves. This year’s goal is to raise awareness and funds for species at risk, like the burrowing owl. Burrowing owls, one of the smallest members of the owl family, were once common in western Canada. Today, they are listed as endangered by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada. In spite of recovery efforts, this little owl has grown even scarcer. The reasons for its decline include habitat loss and fragmentation, lack of suitable prey, environmental contaminants, and other hardships on its breeding grounds in Canada and on its wintering range in Central and South America. Through Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Endangered Species Program, CWF has been working to conserve species at risk like burrowing owls and their habitats for future generations through research and recovery support, advocacy and awareness. Becoming part of the Walk for Wildlife is easy. Participants can visit WalkforWildlife.ca to register,

Civitan in Canada is made up of two Districts Canadian District East and Canadian District West.

Civitan International is an organization of volunteer service clubs in 38 countries around the world, dedicated to helping people in their own communities. Civitans help wherever the need arises - from collecting food for a homeless shelter, to volunteering at their local retirement home, to building a playground for children with disabilities. Civitans have been helping people since the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founding in 1917, by a group of businessmen determined to making a difference in their community. In the 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Civitan adopted a special emphasis on helping people with developmental disabilities. Civitan was one of the major supporters of Special Olympics International, and thousands of Civitans still support these local events. Civitan clubs also fund and organize special camps and events for people with developmental disabilities.

Film offers peek behind the scenes of NFL football Important tips to prevent animal bites MOVIE: Draft Day STARRING: Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary and Frank Langella DIRECTOR: Ivan Reitman RATING: PG Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Draft Day is essentially a football movie, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a fan of football because no football was actually played during the making of this film. I know a football movie with no football sounds pointless, but this is actually a great sports film. On the biggest day of the year, NFL draft day, Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner) the general manager of the Cleveland Browns is told heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about to be a dad. His girlfriend Ali (Jennifer Gardner) also happens to be the salary cap manager for The Browns. Needless to say Sonny doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t react well. Sonny puts all other thoughts out of his head because he needs to focus. The draft is his chance to rebuild The Browns. Then he makes a trade. He gives up three years of first round picks for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s number one pick, and the chance to take star rookie quarterback Bo Callahan (Josh Pence). This sends The Brownsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; staff into a frenzy. They

My Take MARK HASKINS

werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even looking at a player like Bo. Trouble is Coach Penn (Denis Leary) hates the move. He thinks Sonny has sacrificed the Brownsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; future. Even worse Sonny isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sold on drafting Bo despite what The Browns owner, Anthony Molina (Frank Langella), wants. Sonnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original plan was to draft Vontae Mack (Chadwick Boseman). Now heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rethinking everything on the one day he needs to be sure. His job, his future, the future of the Cleveland Browns hinges on this one pick. Draft Day may be a football movie without football, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fascinating behind-thescenes look at an NFL team. The NFL draft is a pivotal time. Dreams are made and crushed, and Draft Day takes you right into the heart of it. It makes it real in a way that gets you on the edge of your seat. More than that Draft Day has just the right amount of humour, dramatic tension, and plain old fashioned heart

that makes it a really fun film to watch. From the top stars to the bit parts this is a great cast. Everyone fits like pieces of a puzzle. Jennifer Garner completely steals the show. She has the best lines and flawless delivery. Denis Leary has made a career of playing a jerk. To be fair heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very good at it and it does work for the character. Then we have Frank Langella. As the owner of The Browns, Langella commands your attention. In other words heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfect. Kevin Costnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career has had its ups and downs, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s any denying the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talent. If you have any doubts just watch him in Draft Day. He brings a passion and a rawness of emotion to this role that is brilliant. I enjoyed Draft Day. It is exciting, funny, intense. Everything about it is good even if there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any football. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that time of year when we all want to get outside after a long winter. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit would like to remind everyone to enjoy the outdoors, but to remember that along with the increased interaction with our friends and neighbours there is an increased risk of contact with peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pets and with wildlife. While most interactions are positive, it is important to reduce the risk of animal bites or scratches. Animals may bite or scratch while being protective of their owners, new litters of their young or their food. Young children are not always gentle with pets and may be bitten. The following tips may help prevent an animal bite: â&#x20AC;˘ Stay away from wild, stray or unknown animals. â&#x20AC;˘ Never leave small children unattended in the presence of an animal. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disturb an animal that is eating, sleeping or caring for its young or may be feeling unwell. â&#x20AC;˘ Never enter a home unannounced or reach through a fence as dogs tend to be protective. â&#x20AC;˘ Avoid running and biking past a dog as they like to chase things and people.

It is important to enjoy wildlife from a distance. Never feed them! Wild animals may become dependent on humans for food. Leaving food out may attract wildlife to your property which can result in unwanted interactions with your pets, animal bites and risk of exposure to rabies. Rabies is an infectious and contagious disease of the central nervous system and is fatal if left untreated. The rabies virus is carried in the saliva of an infected warm-blooded animal and can infect humans during a bite or scratch. Raccoons, bats, foxes and skunks are significant wildlife species that spread the disease. Biting can sometimes be an early sign of rabies. Anyone who is aware of a biting incident either from a domestic or wild animal must report it to the health unit. The health unit follows up all reports of bites/scratches to ensure the person bitten has not been exposed to rabies. A public health inspector will call to ensure you do not euthanize (kill) the animal involved. The inspector will ask for proof of current rabies vaccination and may require you to confine and observe your pet for 10 days. This confinement period is not meant to be punishment for your pet; it prevents further exposures

and lets you observe your pet for any signs and symptoms of rabies. If the animal is alive and healthy after the observation period, the determination that the animal was not rabid at the time of the bite can be made. If your pet is involved in a bite, you should: â&#x20AC;˘ Assist the injured person. â&#x20AC;˘ Be sure to provide them with your name, phone number and address so a public health inspector can reach you. â&#x20AC;˘ Ensure you return home with your pet under your control and keep it in a secure area away from people and other animals. â&#x20AC;˘ Locate your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vaccination record. If your pet is due for a rabies shot, do not book a vet appointment until after the 10day confinement period when the public health inspector has released the animal. Be a responsible pet owner, vaccinate you pet against rabies (it is the law). â&#x20AC;˘ Keep your pet under your control when out in public spaces and fence your yard. When we all do our part, animal bites can be prevented. For more information, check our website at www.healthunit. org. Submitted by the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit.

Q and A

   

      My favourite favvou dish has to be the Dry Aged Steaks, the Ĺśavou Ĺśavourr is intense and the meat is tender. Very few places use a dry aged product, this is unique to our business busine ess..

      

 Keep eep th the he ffood simple and the service personal, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t oover ver complicate quality ingredients.
