Petition fails, 140 Elmsley coming down By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

At a special council meeting on Monday, April 28, the fate of 140 Elmsley was sealed: the building will be demolished. A divided council voted in a bylaw approving an out of budget expenditure to demolish 140 Elmsley St. and to amend the town’s procurement bylaw and single source the work to Saumure and Sons. “I don’t understand why now, why the rush, I go back to Mayor Staples and Councillor Brennan who voted against a modest tax increase and ask how can you justify an out of budget expense of $35,000 and why single source the project?

is a construction company so they’ll be subcontracting to a demolition company. So why are we paying a middle man?” said a clearly frustrated Coun. Shawn Pankow. Two weeks ago a petition to save the building was started by Zendragon owner, Brian Paquette and had, as of the meeting on Monday, garnered a little more than 100 signatures. Though both staff and council were aware of it, the community interest didn’t sway either side of the debate. “I look at it (140 Elmsley) and look at how much it will cost to tear it down, to landscape it and what we paid for it,” said Coun. Dawn Quinn, who urged residents to keep signing the petition to save the building.

Pankow and Quinn were joined by Coun. Lorraine Allen who made an eloquent plea to sell the building and encourage its restoration. They were outnumbered. “My preference would be that before we make a final decision we exhaust all possibilities for repurposing the building,” said Pankow. “I think we have exhausted all possibilities, and we’ve exhausted the issue,” said Coun. Chris Cummings, succinctly echoing councillors Ken Graham, Jay Brennan and Staples. Although the bylaw was passed nobody either on council or on staff addressed councillor Quinn’s concern over the additional cost of landscaping following demolition.

News – Quick work by Smiths Falls firefighters helped to contain a serious fire to a pair of fourth-floor rooms at the Comfort Inn hotel off Centre Street in Smiths Falls Thursday, April 24. The call went out at around 4:15 p.m. as heavy black smoke began to billow from the balcony overlooking the Rideau Canal. In fact, it was observers from across the waterway who alerted several Canadian Pacific Railway workers, who had checked into rooms on the second floor, of the blaze. “The alarms went off,” said witness Pat Coffey. “You could smell something but people (who could see the flames) were yelling from across the canal. “You knew it was the real deal then,” he said. By about 5 p.m., the fire was under control with firefighters attacking the scene from within as well as from the aerial truck positioned on the south side of the hotel. Smiths Falls Fire Chief Normand Beauchamp, said five firefighters were on scene and had the blaze under control within one hour. The fire had broken out in one room on the fourth floor then spread to a second room. The fire caused smoke and water damage to the building, noted the chief. “It (room) was engulfed, that’s the best way to describe it,” Coffey said. Just four doors down, LoriAnn Charles was in her room when the alarms sounded. Nobody knew she was up there and according to her husband Mark Gravelle who was out at the time, even the firefighters were astounded that she managed to get out on her own, because as fast as they had responded, by the time they arrived the smoke was so thick they couldn’t see anything themselves. “They said she was extremely lucky to have got out so fast, because just five minutes in that smoke and the brain starts to shut down,” said

Firefighters from Smiths Falls as well as Montague Township and BBD&E were called to the scene. The chief added that several emergency vehicles were also out in full force. Several other resources also attended, including Smiths Falls Police Services, Lanark County Paramedic Service, Enbridge, Hydro One and Red Cross. A restaurant inside the Comfort Inn, Chuckles Jack, had to be closed for dinner. Chef Ram Mogandas said he had reservations for 50 people that night, but had to turn them away. Everyone was able to make it out safely, he said, and no injuries were reported from inside the restaurant. The Smiths Falls Fire Department is conducting an investigation to determine the cause of the fire. With files from Howaida Sorour.

Gravelle. Nonetheless, fast as she was she suffered quite serious smoke inhalation though she didn’t know it at the time. The next day she had to be taken to hospital. “They checked her thoroughly and were quite concerned, they gave her a mandatory seven days rest,” said Gravelle. Her symptoms included earache, swollen eyes, back pain, debilitating headaches and phlegm. “It was scary listening to the doctors debate whether to send her to Ottawa or not, in the end they decided not to, and she’s doing well now,” said Gravelle.

Lanark County promoting emergency preparedness May 4 to 10 to raise public awareness of the local municipal activities. Municipalities are responsible for providing a plan of prevention, mitigation, response and recovery for their residents. “Lanark County’s emergency plan has several elements,� explains

Rick Hannah, emergency services co-ordinator. “It aims to protect the health, safety, welfare and property of residents; to support local municipalities and their emergency plans in the event of a local or county emergency; and to provide available

resources to help local municipalities,� he said. Examples of emergency preparedness include encouraging residents to have 72-hour kits ready, which helps people to sustain them during the early hours of an emergency in order to reduce strain for emergency response services. Hannah notes the local municipalities and the county strive to meet six components in its preparedness program, including having emergency plans, an emergency operations centre that is ready to respond, annual training, annual emergency plan exercises, a plan to provide information to the public during an emergency and ongoing public awareness and education. Warden Richard Kidd (Beckwith Reeve) adds that education and awareness about emergency preparedness helps to lessen the intensity of an emergency situa-

tion. “When residents use the information provided, then they are informed and it helps in the event an emergency in our communities. Emergency preparedness is vital,� he said. This year the county will provide emergency preparedness information through print advertisements and interviews about what to do in an emergency. “We will also be distributing a booklet this summer containing information to help with various aspects of emergencies,� Hannah said. Emergency preparedness information can be found on each of the local municipal websites and in newspaper notifications throughout the year. For more information, check the “Emergency Services� tab at www. lanarkcounty.ca. Submitted by the County of Lanark.

Omya takes clean water seriously with massive tree plant in Tay Valley Community – Just in time for Earth Day, Omya Canada Inc located in Tay Valley Township, has made another massive commitment to conservation in the Tay watershed. Following Omya’s huge gift to the Rural Clean Water Program last month, the company is now planting 80,000 new, vigorous young trees on about 100 acres of company land around its landmark blue and white manufacturing facility on the south side of Highway 7 west of Perth. Trees are notorious for helping keep water clean so this number of trees concentrated in an area close to Rudsdale Creek will create a huge environmental filtering and cleansing function. A forested landscape also encourages a lot more infiltra-

tion of rain and snowmelt into the ground to reduce flooding, to slow down surface runoff and to slowly replenish surface streams during the coming dry season. These 100 acres of new trees, tentatively called the OMYA WOODS, are also partly located in the Intake Protection Zone for the Town of Perth’s municipal water supply. The new OMYA WOODS forest ecosystem will make a significant contribution to protecting municipal source water against contamination. The types of trees planted will be similar to the forest composition of the Tay Valley in general with lots of white pine, white cedar, red oak, bur oak, sugar maple, white spruce and tamarack. Seventy-

thousand trees are to be planted this spring with the remaining 10,000 to be planted in the spring of 2015. Conservation authority chair and Smiths Falls Coun. Ken Graham called this project “…another example of Omya Canada providing its hallmark corporate leadership in protecting the quality rural lifestyle and landscape that everyone so enjoys.” Omya Canada Inc makes quality dry ground calcium carbonate products used by the paint, plastics and building products industry. Omya’s Tay Valley plant on Rudsdale Creek (tributary to the Tay River) is one of two Omya plants in Canada. Submitted by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority.

Former OPP regional commander named deputy commissioner News – Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) chief superintendent G.J. (Gary) Couture, formerly regional commander for the OPP East Region, has been promoted to the rank of deputy commissioner, provincial commander for field operations. Couture is filling the vacancy created when former provincial commander J.V.N. (Vince) Hawkes was promoted to commissioner in March. “A thorough competition process was undertaken which has led to this excellent choice. Gary Couture has demonstrated exceptional service throughout his career with the OPP and I am looking forward to working with him as a provincial commander, where I know he’ll continue to serve the people of Ontario and the OPP well,” said OPP commissioner Hawkes. Originally from Sherbrooke, Quebec, Couture started his career with the OPP in 1985 at Perth detachment. He

has served in four OPP regions in various capacities and roles, including as an investigator, detachment commander, regional director of support and as the East Region commander in Smiths Falls since 2009. As provincial commander, Couture will assume responsibility and oversight for all OPP detachment and satellite locations, administered by five regional headquarters in London, Smiths Falls, Orillia, North Bay and Thunder Bay. OPP policing services are provided to over one million square kilometres of Ontario, and over 20,000 km of highways.

Breaking records for a cure From humble beginnings, M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day has grown into Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest annual fundraising activity by any single supporter. Over the past

25 years, M&M Meat Shops has raised more than $24 million for medical research dedicated to finding a cure for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis. The money raised through events such as Charity BBQ Day has allowed Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canada to fund more than $82 million in major medical research projects. Charity BBQ Day began in 1989, when Mac Voisin, founder of M&M Meat Shops, learned that Canadians suffer from these chronic diseases at an unusually high rate. He quickly realized that he had the unique opportunity to help raise awareness and funds for a little known, and even less spokenabout condition and Canadian charity. Charity BBQ Day was born and Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canada gained both a corporate sponsor and a public voice. Over the past 25 years, Charity BBQ Day has grown rapidly. This year the goal is also set at $1 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What began in 1989 with just a handful of stores has evolved into a highly anticipated national event at more than 400 M&M Meat Shops locations across Canada. Now in our 26th year of fundraising for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canada, Charity BBQ Day combines the power of our local community involvement and nationwide reach. The commitment of our franchisees and volunteers in communities from coast-to-coast is truly amazing and we thank everyone for their dedication,â&#x20AC;? says Gary Decatur, president and chief operating officer at M&M Meat Shops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to help Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canada find a cure and support the many Canadians living courageously with these chronic diseases.â&#x20AC;?

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On Saturday, May 10, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., visit any of the more than 400 M&M Meat Shops locations across Canada to support the M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day in support of Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canada (formerly known as the Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada). M&M Meat Shopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; franchisees, staff and thousands of volunteers from coast-to-coast will be manning their grills to meet the Charity BBQ Day fundraising goal of $1 million. Supporters will receive a hamburger or hot dog, a drink and a bag of chips for a minimum donation of $3. Proceeds raised help fund Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and ulcerative colitis medical research. Canadians have more reasons to be concerned about Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis than anyone else in the world. Families new to Canada are developing Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis for the first time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; often within the first generation. Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis are lifelong diseases that result in pain, urgent bathroom visits, hospital stays, and multiple surgeries. It affects academic success, careers, and relationships. One in every 150 Canadians suffer from Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis, a rate that ranks in the highest worldwide. These are the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadian diseases.â&#x20AC;? This year, M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day is pleased to have 11-year-old Halifax resident, Jillian Robinson, as Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative for the event. Jillian understands all too well what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to live with ulcerative colitis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis at three-years-old. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never known what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like not to be sick.â&#x20AC;?

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Energy East Pipeline project takes first step in approval process DEAR EDITOR: I am happy to announce that TransCanada’s Energy East Pipeline project crossed a key milestone recently with the filing of the project’s description to the National Energy Board of Canada (NEB). The filing is the first step in the formal regulatory process for TransCanada to receive the necessary approvals to build and operate the $12 billion project that will allow eastern Canadian markets to access a less expensive and more stable supply of crude oil from western Canada. The Energy East Pipeline project involves converting approximately 3,000 kilometres of existing natural gas pipeline in our Canadian Mainline between Alberta and eastern Ontario to crude oil service and building approximately 1,600 kilometres of new pipeline to access refineries and export terminals in Quebec and Saint John, New Brunswick. Energy East is anticipated to be in service in 2018. An independent economic analysis of Energy East conducted by Deloitte found that the project will generate $35 billion in additional gross domestic product (GDP) for Canada during development and construction and the first 40 years of its operation. The project is expected to support more than 10,000 full-time jobs during development and construction of the pipeline between 2013 and 2018 with another 1,000 full-time jobs directly supported once the pipeline begins service. It is also expected to generate an additional $10

billion in provincial tax revenues over the same time period. TransCanada has held more than 60 public open houses and participated in hundreds of meetings in 2013 to provide information and discuss important topics such as water safety, pipline integrity, environmental protection and economic benefits. Important input from these events has enabled TransCanada to narrow its selection to the preliminary pipeline route. We are finding that Canadians strongly support the benefits that a project of this scope will bring with assurances that the Energy East Pipeline will operate with a limited impact on all of the resources along the pipeline route. We are currently engaging with nearly 500 communities, 155 First Nation and Metis communities and organizations and more than 5,500 landowners in six provinces. TransCanada plans to hold more events in 2014 and is committed to ensuring all of our stakeholders receive the facts and information they require and is using their feedback to design a project that addresses their questions and concerns. We invite the public to obtain more information by visiting our website at www.energyeastpipeline.com or by calling 1-855-895-8750. Steve Pohlod President Energy East Pipeline

COMMENTARY

Go carnation crazy Editorial – They may be known as the rose’s uglier cousin, but this month, carnations have the power to do a lot of good. May is Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness Month throughout the country and local MS chapters will be out again in full force to participate in the 38th annual Mothers Day Carnation Campaign May 8 and 9. This campaign is traditionally held in conjunction with MS Awareness Month and has raised more than $45 million for research since it was established in 1976. According to the MS Society of Canada, MS is now known as the most common neurological disease in Canada and an average of three new people are diagnosed each year. There is no cure and it can affect those within the 15 to 40 age group, though in some cases, children who are just two have been diagnosed. On May 8 and 9, just prior to the Mother’s Day weekend, volunteers with the local Leeds and Grenville chapter of the MS Society will be out in full force to sell the vibrant blooms at a number of retail outlets. Look for volunteers stationed in Perth, Kemptville, Smiths Falls and other areas. All proceeds will go towards searching for a cause and cure for MS. Selecting Mother’s Day as the time for their campaign wasn’t by accident either. The MS Society says women are three times more likely to live with MS than men, but we should all support the cause. What better way to show love to your mother than to buy her a beautiful bouqet that can also save lives?

Fluffy flat out refuses to like indoor gardening idea Lifestyle - The seeds from SteeleBriggs had long since arrived in the mail. Mother had little wood flats laid out all over the downstairs of the house. Every day I checked looking for sprouts of life, and when I saw some that hadn’t been there before, I was as excited as if I was witness to a birth…which, in a way, it was. Some of the boxes filled the window sills, and space on the bake table had been taken over, and that table pushed close to the window that looked out into the grape arbour. Mother tried to capture as much sunlight as possible to help her growing seeds along. I couldn’t tell what the plants were to become, and I wasn’t sure Mother knew either. So to take the mystery out of it all, Mother placed the empty seed packet onto a little stick and there was one in each box identifying what was planted. Very clever indeed, was my mother.

There was still a chill in the air, but the days were warming up, and Mother said soon the garden would be ploughed up and by then the sprouts could be ready for planting. Every night before I went to bed, I carried my little kitten Fluffy in my arms and circled the boxes, putting firmly in my mind how tall each sprig was, so that in the morning I could check to see what growth had taken place over the night. Mother, who was dead set against any pets in the house, allowed me to keep Fluffy, but only until she was grown enough to move to the barn. And with her in my arms, I would talk to her about the plants and how once they had been tiny little seeds, sure in my mind that she knew every word I was saying.

teaspoon and poked at the earth around the little plants coming to life in the box under the window. I wanted to believe her, but to me they looked exactly as they did two days before. Firmly holding Fluffy, I got down on my knees and smelled the little plants. All I could smell was earth. I put Fluffy’s nose close too, but she didn’t seem the least bit interested in whether or not the plants were showing any sign of life. “Those have grown a good inch,” Sometimes I sneaked Fluffy upMother said that night, as she took a stairs to my bedroom, which I shared Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

with my older sister Audrey...I’d put her under my bed on a folded blanket. That night I put her in her small cardboard box behind the Findlay Oval, because the house had cooled down, and I knew she would be as snug as a bug in a rug. I wakened the next morning to Mother’s yelling up the stairwell for me to get down to the kitchen, and I better make it fast! Wiping the sleep from my eyes I followed Mother’s pointing finger to the flat box of sprouts under the kitchen window. There was Fluffy, stretched out as neat as you please, on top of what was just about ready for planting! With orders to remove “that cat” immediately and to get her right out to the barn, (she was never to darken the door again), Mother stopped only long enough to repeat once again that animals belong in the barn! I scooped up the kitten, and even I 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

knew the sprouts were beyond repair. Mother said I could take the wood box out to the junk pile behind the silo when I was at it! Still in my pyjamas, with Fluffy under one arm, and the box of soil and flattened sprouts in the other, I headed for the silo. Fluffy spent the rest of her days with the rest of the barn cats well away from the house. Litter boxes were unheard of back in those days, but you didn’t need a university degree to tell you the smell coming from the wood box held more than a few dozen would-be vegetable plants.

LFLA Green Party selects candidate Enjoy spaghetti supper to support for the next provincial election moms, children of Interval House May 8 News – The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has just released its most comprehensive report telling us climate change is a threat to food, security and humankind. No political party in Canada is even paying lip service to the need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions other than the Green Party. The Green Party’s is determined to try and reduce the potential impacts of the nightmare scenarios outlined in this latest report and playing out throughout the world today. From epic droughts, flooding and massive storms such as Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines to Hurricane Sandy, climate change is happening today on a catastrophic scale. The Lanark-FrontenacLennox and Addington Green Party has selected its candidate for the next Provincial election. Cam Mather from Tamworth is a farmer and publisher of books about sustainable living. He and his wife Michelle power their home and business off the electricity grid using solar and

wind power. Mather noted, “The summer of 2012 convinced me that I had to be more active in politics. It was the hottest summer on record. We experienced a brutal drought as did much of North America, and we saw historic wild fires in the southern US. Then Superstorm Sandy demonstrated the results of rising sea levels and hurricanes fueled by warm water, as New York and New Jersey suffered billions of dollars in damages.” Mather had a front row seat for the epic drought of 2012 as he tried to grow a weekly basket of vegetables for the members of his CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) group. “Climate change is accelerating and it is beginning to have an extremely negative outcome. It’s starting to affect our basic way of life with historic low water levels in some of the Great Lakes and crop losses for farmers,” Mather said. “Even OMAFRA (the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs) was advising maple syrup produc-

ers to cut back on tree tapping in 2013 because maple trees were stressed.” March of 2012 had two weeks of almost summer-like weather, which had a dramatic impact on maple syrup production. We then had a hot dry summer and a drought so there simply wasn’t the precipitation that the maple trees need. Maple trees are stressed. Mather suggests, “Can you imagine Lanark County and the surrounding area no longer being able to produce maple syrup? It’s part of who we are and climate change is impacting that.” “The Green Party is the only party squarely focused on addressing an issue which is going to impact not just our children and grandchildren, but all of us, and now, not in some distant future. I believe voters in our community are ready to elect a government serious about addressing this issue before we reach a tipping point with the climate,” he continued. Submitted by the LanarkFrontenac-Lennox & Addington Green Party.

Spring maintenance underway for canal bridges News – The Government of Canada has made record investments toward heritage canals. In the coming weeks, Parks Canada will be conducting spring maintenance at some of our swing bridges and sites, in preparation for the 2014 navigation season. This includes preventative maintenance tasks like washing and greasing swing bridges and conducting visual inspections to ensure their safe operability. Temporary bridge closures The Old Slys and Abbott Street swing bridge were already closed April 23 and 24, and April 29 and 30, respec-

tively. The director of Ontario Waterways for Parks Canada advises of the following temporary bridge closures for this regular spring maintenance, weather permitting: May 8: Burritts Rapids (North Grenville) May 14: Upper Nicholsons (Merrickville-Wolford) May 15: Beckwith Street Swing Bridge (Perth) Traffic delays Seasonal maintenance on certain swing bridges that cross the Rideau Canal will not result in closures, but vehicles may experience short delays of

about 10 minutes: • May 1-2: Chaffeys Lock (Rideau Lakes) • May 7: Merrickville (Merrickville-Wolford) • May 12: Kilmarnock (Merrickville-Wolford) Motorists are invited to plan their routes accordingly in order to avoid delays. To accommodate school bus traffic, efforts will be made to keep bridges closures between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Parks Canada wishes to thank bridge users for their patience during the maintenance period.

When the rubber hits the retirement road be sure your financial tires are fully inflated Whether your retirement begins tomorrow or somewhere down the road, the time to begin real retirement planning is now – especially when it comes to ensuring you’ll have the retirement income you need to realize all your retirement dreams. Here’s your retirement planning quick start guide. 1. Decide when your want to retire If you decide to retire ‘early’ you’ll have fewer years to save for retirement. If you retire after 65, you can continue the tax-saving, income-building advantages of investments held in your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) until the end of the year in which you turn 71. 2. Decide on your retirement lifestyle Will you keep working at least part of the time, or even start a business? If so, you can save less in advance because even a little extra employment income can go a long way. 3. Conduct a retirement/ income analysis Estimate your monthly retirement living expenses like utilities, insurance and mortgage payments. Also consider additional costs such as travel, hobbies, and other forms of entertainment. 4. Know your government sources of income Find

Manage Your Money out how much income you can expect from government sources like the Canadian Pension Plan (CPP) or the Québec Pension Plan (QPP) and Old Age Security (OAS). Get good info at http://www. servicecanada.gc.ca/eng/ services/pensions/infocard/ janmar14.shtml. 5. Know your pension at work – if you have one Determine whether your employer-provided pension plan is a defined benefit plan or a defined contribution plan. If it’s a defined benefit plan the Pension Administrator can give you a monthly benefit payout estimate. If it’s a defined contribution plan, you’ll have to do your own estimate of monthly pension. 6. Add in your savings Know what you can expect from investments held in your Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA), RRSP and other investments. Also know the rules governing the withdrawal of income and the taxes that may be applied. 7. Do the math Add up all sources of monthly retirement income including your savings and investment withdrawals. Compare this

against your estimate of monthly retirement living expenses. If you come up short, you may need to re-think your planned retirement lifestyle, ramp up your savings strategies, or both. 8. Aim to manage taxes in retirement Strategies can include income or pension splitting with your spouse, sharing CPP/QPP benefits, and investing in a tax-advantaged mutual fund-based Monthly Income Portfolio. 9. Get professional advice Now that you know exactly what you want in retirement, meet with your professional advisor to develop a plan that will ensure you are adequately prepared for the costs of your retirement.

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; If you want to give your home some TLC this spring, then the Algonquin College Perth Campus has just the courses you need to get the job done. From window installation to re-furbishing furniture, the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continuing education program has two home-related courses on offer this spring that will help you tackle those jobs on your to-do list. The first course, Do-It-Yourself Home Renovations, provides participants with basic theoretical and practical instruction in Canadian wood frame house construction. Topics covered over the six-week course include: basic framing of walls, including openings, insulation and vapour barrier, interior and exterior finishes, window and door insulation, interior and exterior trim, history of styles and proportions. Taught by Algonquin College professor, Shawn Thomson, students will also have a one-on-one opportunity to sit down with him to review any first-hand questions about their home-renovation projects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People really want to take ownership over their home projects, and this course is a great starting point to boost their confidence in finishing the projects themselves,â&#x20AC;? explains Thomson. Work boots and safety goggles are required, but all other tools and materials will be supplied.

Winning Junior A title is a total community effort As a long-time Carleton Place resident and junior hockey fan I thoroughly enjoyed the playoffs which culminated Easter Sunday when Canadians won a 2-1 overtime thriller against visiting Smiths Falls Bears to wrap up the CCHL championship series in five games. They claimed the Bogart-Nielsen Cup for their efforts. Now they are hoping for more success along the national playoff trail. I have covered junior hockey for newspapers for 43 years. This season in Carleton Place made me think of the town’s past successes in Junior B hockey. Clarke himself led the former Carleton Place Legion Kings (now Almonte Thunder) to back-to-back Valley Division championships in what is now the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League (EOJHL) in 2008 and 2009. He then completed the considerable jump to Junior A hockey. By the way Almonte won the Valley Division (Junior B) title this year and should be applauded. They too are in just their fifth campaign in the EOJHL. This season in Carleton Place harkens back to the late 1970s and early 1980s when Legion Kings were coached by the late Bill Griese Sr. Carleton Place won Junior B titles in the former Northwest Division in 1979 and 1981. Their 1981 line-up included a young defenceman named Dave Ellett. He went on to a 17-year National Hockey League career including lengthy stints with Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs.

playoff tickets early in Carleton Place. The rink was jammed to the rafters every night. With no reserved seating, fans went to the arena during the day and placed blankets or coats on seats to save them for night games. The atmosphere was electric and Legion Kings delivered solid success for several consecutive campaigns. This season it was déjà vu all over again. Except in Junior A hockey the level of play is so much higher. And the production values – the light and sound show – is extremely good for a small town. Canadians have made it fun to go to the community centre and local fans have responded. The playoff crowds were huge with capacity audiences for most of the club’s nine home games during the post-season. It takes a community effort to make a junior hockey team a success. Clarke has stressed that from Day 1. He’s to be commended for getting his players so involved in the town in general. Canadians’ players volunteer at the local daycare facility and the public library among other places. They take part in many community functions throughout the long Junior A season. I am most impressed on Remembrance Day (Nov. 11) when I see all of the Canadians’ players who are available at the Cenotaph, wearing their Huge interest In those long ago days you uniform jerseys, and taking part had to get your junior hockey in the annual service of remem-

house laughed when I spoke to her at the series clinching game Easter Sunday. Yes, it takes a community to make this kind of organization work and become the success Carleton Place Canadians have in such a short time. Canadians’ motto is: “One Town, One Team, One Goal!” In just five short seasons Carleton Place Canadians have reached their goal. Obviously I wish them nothing but success at the Fred Page Cup in Montreal and a berth in the national championship tournament in B.C. A Canadian title is a rare feat considering there are 127 teams in 10 leagues, in three regions of the country who vie for the honour annually. In the more than 50-year history of the CCHL only two clubs, the most recent being Pembroke in 2011, have won the national competition. To me, whatever Canadians accomplish following their recent league championship victory will be gravy. But as a long-time Carleton Place junior hockey fan I will be following their national playoff exploits with great interest!

families who agree to billet players. The athletes themselves are recruited from across North America. Canadians’ current 26-man roster features six American players and 14 (including those from the U.S.) from outside this region. They are young men, many of them students who require a good home to live in during the hockey season. Their families quite rightly expect nothing less! Every season people here step forward and open their homes to a player or in some cases more than one. They are welcomed into people’s homes and soon become a member of the family. Even though the team subsidizes their living expenses it is a huge commitment to take another person into your home. Especially someone who eats so much! Ask a host family what their weekly grocery bill is? There must be many hidden costs involved and yet these families happily take on a major commitment which, this season, is at least nine months long. A host family who lives in our neighbourhood had a lot of visitors from Michigan (where their player is from) Easter weekend. “I had 23 for brunch this morning,” the lady of the

brance. This has happened every year since Carleton Place joined the CCHL. As Carleton Place Mayor Wendy LeBlanc told me last week, “The players are such great role models for children here.” Owner and head coach Clarke is quick to credit the people of Carleton Place for his team’s success. Following the big overtime win Easter Sunday Clarke told me, “It was so unbelievable to share this experience (league championship) with all of our fans, supporters and sponsors.” Obviously it is regular fans that back the team through 31 home games and the post season. It is supporters who assist the club whenever and wherever necessary. And most important of all it is the sponsors who help fund the team through either direct or in-kind donations. Early this season Canadians’ bus suffered a malfunction and caught fire. It was destroyed. The team had to scramble to make alternate travel arrangements. A major sponsor soon stepped forward and the team now has an excellent vehicle to get them to and from road games. Another huge factor is those

Lifestyle – When Carleton Place Canadians’ owner and head coach Jason Clarke had his expansion bid accepted by the Central Canada Hockey League (Tier 1 Junior A) in 2009, he told me his goal was to win the league championship in “a reasonable period of time.” It has taken Clarke just five seasons to achieve that goal. Quite remarkable when you consider that some junior hockey teams never win a championship despite decades of trying! Clarke has proven himself to be an excellent recruiter. He clearly knows blossoming hockey talent when he sees it. This season underlines the fact. His Canadians either set or tied every record for winning in CCHL history. The league is more than half a century old and Carleton Place is the most recent addition in what is now a 12-team loop. The CCHL includes five Ottawa-based clubs and seven others in communities across eastern Ontario. Canadians rang up an impressive 110 points in 62 games and set new benchmarks for wins, home ice victories and consecutive wins at home. They also tied Pembroke Lumber Kings’ mark for road triumphs set in 2009-10. As you read this column Carleton Place is in Saint-Jérôme, Quebec (a Montreal suburb) competing in the Fred Page Cup Eastern Canadian Junior A championship tournament. The final game is set for Sunday afternoon. The winner advances to the Royal Bank Cup Canadian Junior A championship which this year is being played in Vernon, British Columbia May 10-18. So, pretty heady stuff for such a young organization.

Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists get set to host fifth annual Spring Gathering By IAIN WILKES

Lifestyle – The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN), founded in the spring of 1988, will hold their fifth annual Spring Gathering. The evening will include a banquet and a keynote presentation entitled “Caterpillars Talk and Butterflies Listen" which will be given by Dr. Jayne Yack, acoustic ecologist at Carleton

iversity. Once thought to be both deaf and mute, we now know that caterpillars can talk and butterflies can listen. During their daily activities these creatures communicate via a wide range of sounds and vibrations. Caterpillars send signals to defend territories or to startle predators. Butterflies eavesdrop on predators. Tap into the secret communication channels of the acoustic

sensory world of insects and meet translator, Dr. Yack. MVFN’s Spring Gathering will take place Thursday, May 15 at the Almonte Civitan Community Hall, 500 Almonte St., just west of Highway 29, in Almonte. The reception will begin at 6 p.m. at which you can meet, share a drink, and chat with friends. The banquet commences at 6:45 p.m., followed by the featured presentation at

approximately 8 p.m. Tickets are $35 and must be purchased or reserved in advance by Friday, May 9. Tickets may be purchased in Almonte at the Gilligallou Bird Store, #3 – 14 Mill St. (613-461-7333); in Carleton

Place at Read’s Book Shop, 135 Bridge St. (613-2577323); in Lanark at New Runway Clothing Store, 46 George St. (613-259-5677); and in Perth at The Office, 11 Wilson St (613-267-2172). Please contact MVFN’s

Barbara Has Assisted over 3000 Families to Buy or Sell their Homes

a home by themselves. The top factors considered by those who intend to buy this year include the stability of their job situation and manageable debt levels. Confidence in these areas indicates that Canadians are more mindful of their finances than in 2013, which directly impacts the ability to afford home ownership. Among those likely to buy a home within the next two years, four-in-ten will be first time homebuyers. “The increase in buying intentions across the country gives the strong signal that there is renewed confidence in the market, but also that Canadians are more prepared this year to take that step into homeownership,” said Rachel Wihby, senior manager, Home Equity Finance, RBC. “We want to make sure that Canadians have access to the advice they need when they are buying a home. Often, there are things that first time home buyers may not think of that can ensure they are more prepared, like budgeting for closing costs or getting a home inspection. We want to help set them up for success.”

Business - More Ontarians plan to buy homes this year compared to last, according to the 21st annual RBC Home Ownership Poll. Nearly one-in-four (24 per cent) residents of Canada’s most populous province said they intend to buy a home this year, up from less than one-in-five (14 per cent) in 2013. “Ontarians continue to see the value in home ownership,” said Erica Nielsen, vice-president, Home Equity Finance, RBC. “The continued belief that the housing market is a good investment, combined with the increase in number of those who intend to buy, really highlights that Ontarians have no doubt in the strength of the housing market and want to participate more than they have in recent years. These findings are uniform across Canada, and may be the result of a number of factors, including job stability and having saved enough for a down payment.” While the majority of Canadians (62 per cent) intend to buy a home with their spouse or partner, more than one-in-four (28 per cent) Canadians intend to buy

Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society to hear from renowned botanist May 7 Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society welcomes renowned botanist Diana BeresfordKroeger to its May 7 meeting. Diana brings together ethno-botany, horticulture, spirituality and alternative medicine to reveal a path toward better stewardship of the natural world. Dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tree Whispererâ&#x20AC;? by The Globe and Mailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sarah Hampson (Oct. 17, 2013), Diana defines herself as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;renegade scientist.â&#x20AC;? Her book, The Global Forest: 40 Ways Trees Can Save Us, is to be featured in a documentary currently being shot by award-winning filmmaker Jeff McKay (Recreating Eden). This documentary is part of the Ten Trees That Can Save the World project that will use television programming, a website, and interactive educational components to try to educate seven billion people on the importance of trees. Trees are, of course, Dianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s topic at the upcoming Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society meeting, and it is a topic she takes very personally. Over the years, she and husband Christian have planted more than 100 indigenous and endangered trees on their 160-acre property near Merrickville. Dianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-hand study of these and other specimens she has visited world-wide

Diana offers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The human heart is incredible. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave this world for the younger generation and not hold their hands and give them guidance. From people can arise ideas, and ideas can change the world.â&#x20AC;?

Consider some of the fostering opportunities available at LAWS Lifestyle – Lanark Animal Welfare Society is currently looking for reliable and loving foster homes. The foster program is an essential tool for coping with the overcrowding issues that the shelter often faces. It is a way for kind-hearted individuals to give a shelter animal a less stressful environment in which to heal, care for kittens/puppies and deal with behavioural issues such as separation anxiety. Fostering provides short-term care in safe, loving environments for our cats and dogs in need until they are adopted into their forever homes. Fostering can last anywhere from a few days to several months and all animal care costs are covered. All you need to provide is the space and the love. This essential program maximizes the number of animals rescued, and offers a healthy alternative to shelter life. A good foster home provides opportunities for exercise and socializing and increases the opportunities for adoption and a smoother transition into a permanent home. The win-win program offers individ-

this sweet natured and gentle dog was custom made for loving and cuddling. She may have a moderate energy level, but she remains a happily active social butterfly, excellent with people, with most dogs and with cats. Low to moderately vocal, Rosie knows some of the basic commands, is housebroken, good on leash and really, really loves car rides. An all round healthy, outgoing and bubbly little beauty, she will need some dental work in the near future to perfect that beauty. And to complete this almost perfect picture, she would love nothing more than to become some loving family’s forever social butterfly.

The power of gospel has always been enjoyed May 3: Cure SMA at Little Rock Farm from 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

messages of hope through lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenges. I recently attended a concert entitled country gospel bluegrass concert featuring a Kingston-area based group called The Old Hims held at the local high school. They got their start singing hymns set to a country style and have since expanded to also utilize more contemporary songs of praise. The quartet is made up of Ross Clow on vocals and rhythm guitar â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 79 years young, Glen Neff, 81, on mandolin, pedal steel and vocals, Dwayne Rennie on bass â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the youngster at nearly 70, and Charlie King on keyboard, fiddle and that gift of the stunningly deep bass voice (often found in gospel), just having turned 70. Their harmonies were simple and sweet, their instrumentation adding to their sound. The almost full house certainly enjoyed their presentation. Other notables on the bill were Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own George Lackey who, at 95, hobbled to the mic and proceeded to impress us all with his sense of humour, passion, guitar and vocal work. Ervin Sweeney, joined by 13-year-old vocalist Grace Francis and Ervinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young granddaughters, Arianne, Annika and Anastasia Burnside, all on fiddle and their mother on piano, showed us just what a wonderful musical family sounds like. Fred Williams, his daughter Miriam and her husband Sean Keye covered a couple of songs and then sang a sweet tune Miriam had written. Fredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guitar work was impressive as were their subtle harmonies, impressing us all. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see why Thom Gardiner, previously of the now defunct Northern Sons Bluegrass Band won so many Songwriter and Vocalist of the Year awards previously at the Central Canadian Bluegrass Awards. Hearing his unique voice was a memorable experience in itself and his self written tunes rang with hope. It seemed fitting to close this show with everyone joining in on the classic Amazing Grace. Its theme of forgiveness and redemption, written by English clergyman/poet John Newton in 1779 has stood the test of time and, like gospel music, will continue to bring hope and reassurance to us all.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always enjoyed the power of gospel music and have been touched by it throughout my life. I remember early days of Sunday school when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d sing songs then identified as â&#x20AC;&#x153;negro spiritualsâ&#x20AC;? like Go Tell It On the Mountain or the song Pete Seeger helped make famous, We Shall Overcome. It was originally thought he took it from the gospel song, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll Overcome Someday, originally written by Charles Albert Tindley in 1901 but more recent study has shown that the song actually came from a spiritual written in the early 1930s by Louise Shropshire entitled If My Jesus Wills. It was taught to Seeger by Zilphia Horton, which he claimed in 2012, adapting it into what has become the anthem of the civil rights movement. Gospel music roots are from field songs, the African American styles dating back as far as the 1700s where most in the fields were unable to read, so, call and response songs with much repetition were utilized to allow everyone to join in and build strength through songs of hope and communal singing. Originally mostly a cappella (sung without musical accompaniment), it evolved to be supported by foot stomping and hand clapping. Gradually guitars and other instruments were added as they became available. Gospel quartets utilizing often complex harmonies, developed in the 1930s with groups like the Blind Boys of Alabama and the Dixie Hummingbirds, singing a cappella. These groups have evolved to this day, now having instrumentation backing them. The Jordanaires were one of the first white gospel groups to sing spirituals and became the backing group for Elvis Presley in 1956. They continue to this day in Nashville where the Ottawa rockabilly band, The Kingmakers, had them do some background on one of their albums, just a few years ago. Besides recording with Elvis, The Jordanaires became the go to background group, recording with Jim Reeves, Patsy Cline, Marty Robbins, Ricky Nelson and virtually every other major name in both pop and country music during the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;50s, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s, and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s; between 2,200 and 2,500 hundred artists and more than 30,000 sides recorded in the studios; plus, their stage work, radio transcriptions, shows and television appearances, to date. I remember seeing the Dixie Hummingbirds at Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bluesfest a few years ago and being mesmerized by the harmonies, the power and the spirit their music oozed. Recordings of Mahalia Jackson, Lou Rawls & Pilgrim Travellers, The Staple Singers and later, Mavis Staples all still give me goose bumps. Gospel music has evolved into many sub genres such as blues gospel, southern gospel, Christian country gospel, bluegrass gospel to name a few. Most utilize stirring harmonies to present positive

Youth group eyes move to Youth Arena in proposal to town By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Garbage be gone! Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bonita Lucas, right, and her grandson Devon McEwen were part of the Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL) team cleaning up the Ferrara Drive area of Smiths Falls on April 26. Annually, REAL organizes Pitch-In days, which this year run from April 26 to May 4. Lucas, the co-ordinator of the initiative, said the team has collected fewer bags of garbage this year.

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Smiths Falls District Centre for Youth is looking for a new home. With 289 registered members theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve outgrown their present location on Main Street West. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our locationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capacity is 50 bodies, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge problem. Recently we had 36 kids in here and with volunteers and staff we were well over 40 and our numbers are growing,â&#x20AC;? said Adam Gariepy, executive director. The building itself also needs a fair bit of work, which raised the question whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth sinking more money into the existing location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Structurally itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an older building. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not against trying to raise the money to renovate it, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re growing fast,â&#x20AC;? said Gariepy. Meanwhile Gariepy and the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program co-ordinator, Kelsi Leaver, have been looking at other locations in town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We looked at storefronts but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expensive to rent and the spaces werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ideal either,â&#x20AC;? said Leaver, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Besides, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re non-profit so we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a steady stream of income to pay rent.â&#x20AC;? Just a few weeks ago, they were approached by a couple of town councillors suggesting they take a look at the abandoned home at 140 Elmsley Street. According to Gariepy, they had a good look at the location but decided the amount of work and the cost would be too onerous for the group and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really be all that different from what they have right now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; disjointed spaces and not enough room to hold

dances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now we have to go off site for our dances â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been using the Lions Club, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re undergoing renovations so we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to use that space until the fall. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to be able to use the gym at Duncan J. Schoular Public School in the interim,â&#x20AC;? said Leaver. Youth Arena proposal Instead, Gariepy suggested that the upper hall at the Youth Arena would make an ideal space for youth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The size of the space is perfect, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one open area, which makes it much easier to supervise and it would allow us to expand the breadth of our programs, and would allow us to hold our dances on-site,â&#x20AC;? said Gariepy. The space offers the youth group everything they need, including an open kitchen where they could offer youth cooking skill programs. The youth groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal includes returning the $10,000 community grant they receive each year to the town in exchange for the space. According to Janet Koziel, assistant treasurer with the town, the Youth Arena Hall brought in $7,702 in rental revenue in 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a perfect location for us, with back door access to the ball diamond, the skate park, the field for soccer, lawn bowling, the walking trail and the rink. Two of our most successful and highest-attended programs are our fitness and snack programs,â&#x20AC;? said Leaver. The only problem is that the town is not all that keen on the proposal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The upstairs hall at the youth arena could turn out

Cdl DeZc

to be a viable option but, at this stage, is not an option favoured by staff,â&#x20AC;? explained Smiths Falls Coun. Shawn Pankow. Part of the issue is that the hall is used throughout the year and by giving it to the youth group exclusively it would no longer be available for rentals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Additionally, staff have concerns with security as we currently would have no means of closing off access to the two arenas, if the youth had access to the youth arena lobby,â&#x20AC;? said Pankow. They would, of course need to go through the lobby because with accessibility requirements the youth would also need access to the elevator. Gariepyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal tries to address security concerns by offering the town the youth groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closed circuit security camera set-up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they wanted to use our system weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d turn it over to the town. We also come with extremely well-trained and responsible staff and volunteers providing supervision for the youth,â&#x20AC;? said Gariepy. In the meantime, the two council representatives on the youth groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board, Pankow and Coun. Jay Brennan are actively trying to find solutions to the dilemma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like staff to prepare a report outlining their concerns and potential solutions and have all of council address this at our next Committee of the Whole in two weeks. I believe council is willing to work with the youth centre staff and board to help find a suitable new location but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure it will be on municipal property,â&#x20AC;? said Pankow.

Grass fire season returns News - Montague Township firefighters with assistance from Smiths Falls, battled a grass fire that started Friday afternoon around 3 p.m. on Carroll Sideroad.

Smiths Falls police caution public about stunt driving News – As part of the Smiths Falls Police public service announcements, this week’s article looks at stunt driving. Did You Know? Stunt Driving; Section 172(1) HTA Is defined as doing any of the following: · Lifting any tire from the surface of the road (wheelies or stoppies); · Intentionally causing any tire to lose traction while turning (skids or drifting); · Driving with someone in the trunk; · Driving 50 km/hr or more over the speed limit; · Slowing down with the intention of slowing or interfering with another vehicle; · Driving with the intention of driving as close as possible to a vehicle, pedestrian or fixed object; or, · Having the intention of causing a vehicle to spin (doing “donuts”). This is a partial list and if convicted of Stunt Driving the driver could face a fine up to $10,000, have the vehicle seized for 7 days, lose your Driver License immediately for 7 days and lose 7 demerit points. You can also expect a dramatic insurance increase. Careless Driving; Section 130 HTA Every person is guilty of the offence of driving carelessly who drives a vehicle on a highway without due care and attention or without reasonable con-

sideration for other persons using the highway and on conviction is liable to a fine of not more than $2,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than six months, or to both, and in addition his or her license or permit may be suspended for a period of not more than two years. The driver will also lose 6 Demerit Points.

Dispose of old prescription meds May 10 Community – Prescription medications that are flushed down the drain can have a dangerous impact on the water table and the environment. Expired or unwanted prescription medication left in your residence whether expired or not can be deadly. Police are seeing a trend where people are looking to take prescription medication from inside your home and illegally sell it or use it. Recent studies indicate 24 per cent of teens reported misusing prescription medications at least once within the previous year. Most of the teens took the medication from their family home. These are only two of the reasons why on Saturday, May 10 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Smiths Falls Police Service in partnership with the other Ontario police services, Ontario Pharmacists’ Association, Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police, Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Health Unit harm reduction committee and the Smiths Falls Municipal Drug Strategy Committee will be participating in the 2014 Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day. Members of the community are urged to visit the Smiths Falls Police Service located at 7 Hershey Drive to safely dispose of old and unused prescription medication in a secure, environmentally-friendly manner.

Delegations question council over recreation cost sharing agreement By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News – The regular Committee of the Whole meeting held on Monday, April 28 was unusually dramatic. It started with the delegations. Arena surcharge Vicki Ogilvie, from Merrickville-Wolford made a presentation to Smiths Falls council questioning the cost sharing agreement. While Ogilvie expressed sympathy with the town trying to cover its operating costs she had a few questions as well. “Is Smiths Falls willing to reduce the surcharge to something reasonable?” she asked. According to Ogilvie, the current policy will chase more users away and result in lower revePhotos by HOWAIDA SOROUR nues instead of the targeted cost recovery. About 70 people attended the National Day of Mourning observance on April 28 at the The second delegation was from the Smiths Smiths Falls Memorial Park. Above and below: Relatives place wreaths and flowers in Falls Minor Hockey Association represented by remembrance of loved ones who lost their lives just doing their jobs. Nancy Greene. According to Greene, most of the association’s members who fall within the two municipalities that have not signed recreation cost sharing agreements with the town are requesting transfers. Meanwhile the Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association is waiving the usual $150 transfer fee, removing the last hurdle to membership losses. As Greene pointed out, it’s not just players who are leaving but coaches, managers and trainers who are leaving with their children, and the Smiths Falls association doesn’t have the funds to re-certify replacements. According to Greene, there are 45 members on the verge of walking – that’s three teams or $17,000 to $18,000 worth of ice time lost. Hotel Rideau Work on the Hotel Rideau has begun in earnest and the project is now going ahead full time. “I’m sticking to the original plan,” said Mark

Gravelle. That plan is for 18 residential condominium units with five commercial spaces on the ground floor and a roof terrace. Gravelle told council that he has already contracted with Pauline Aunger, at Royal LePage Real Estate for the sale of the condos. “I’ve also secured future parking but would rather not say anymore yet,” said Gravelle. Staff reports The delegations were followed by a few brief staff reports. Niki McKernan, town planner gave a brief report concerning the Cataraqui Trail and Otis development. Her reports were followed by a brief report from Kerry Costello, clerk/director corporate services regarding paving quotes received by the town. Her second report focused on the municipal elections this year. “There are nomination papers still available at town hall for anyone seeking to run for municipal office. The nomination papers will be available until nomination day, Friday, Sept. 12,” said Costello. Cost sharing Submitting his final report on the recreational cost sharing boondoggle, Steve Fournier did his best to answer questions from council and to clarify issues for members of the audience who may not have been clear on all the details or the history of the recreational cost-sharing breakdown. A healthy discussion ensued but in the end it was decided to go ahead and authorize staff to finalize the cost sharing agreements with DrummondNorth Elmsley and Montague townships and to start implementing the arena user fee at $158 plus administration fee and taxes for 2014 ramping up to $316 plus administration fee and taxes by 2016.

Chimo students create film showcasing girls’ inner beauty had all started wearing make-up when they were 10 or 11 years old. “And now we’re challenging everyone who watches our movie, to think about how much make-up they wear,” said Orr. The finished product is a combination of videos, photos, slides and music pulled together using the iMovie software. “I’ve done the film festival before and each time it’s been a process,’ said Murphy. “It’s an eye opening experience for the students when they realize how much time and collaboration goes into the development of a three-minute product.” The movie opens with the music of Titanium by Madilyn Bailey and progresses through stills and slides of the teenagers and celebrities with captions like: “Being unique and different is the next generation of beautiful” and “Be confident in who you are, let your true beauty shine,”

Community – Five Grade 8 students from Chimo Elementary School are headed down to the Galaxy Theatre in Brockville May 7 to participate in the Real to Reel Film Festival. The five teenagers, Amy Wynne, Mallory Orr, Devyn Fox, Teegan Jackson, and Natasha Rosborough have created their own three-minute film to share at the event. “We’ve made a movie about how girls don’t need to wear make-up, how their inner beauty is enough, not the make-up they wear,” said Fox. Real to Reel is a non-competitive event showcasing student-created films that communicate an element of the Upper Canada District School Boards ‘Character First!’ values. “It’s a UCDSB initiative to have students express themselves creatively through film and it’s based on character education,” said Ashley Murphy, project supervisor and teacher. The all-day festival will be the culmination of a lot of hours of work. “It took us about a month and two weeks – we had so many ideas and some of the ideas we couldn’t put together. Our starting point was ‘identity’,” said student Amy Wynne. Their initial idea was ‘a day in the life of a teenage girl’, but it was proving too big a topic. Meanwhile Murphy became aware of the no-make-up selfie challenge that was taking the Internet by storm and pointed the students towards it. “We all loved it,” said Fox. The subject matter certainly resonated with these students who admitted they

The five students admit that while making the movie didn’t entirely cure them of the need to wear make-up it made them far more aware of it than they had been before. “I wear less make-up now, I used to wear mascara and a lot of foundation and powder, now I don’t,” said Rosborough. At the festival the students will be able to watch and share their creation on the big screen. “We also get to see what other students have made and be inspired by all the other ideas,” said Rosborough. The festival also offers the students the opportunity to take part in a number of film-related workshops including an animation, claymation and green screen workshop. “And we’ll each leave the festival with a CD copy of all the movies that were produced for the festival,” said Murphy.

DBA bike racks The Downtown Business Association (DBA) is proposing to install two bike racks in the downtown area, one at Market and Main and one in front of the Good Life Bistro on Main Street. Staff was directed to ensure that the town would not be held liable for lost or stolen bikes and that the racks would not interfere with snow plowing or snow removal.

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thanks to Algonquin Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work placement program, the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario (RMEO) will be able to offer visitors on May 3 and May 4 a sneak peek of its latest exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Dental Car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great opportunity for the museum and for students,â&#x20AC;? said Anne Shropshire, museum curator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the one staff person at the museum I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been able to do something like this with everything else that has to be done to keep the museum running,â&#x20AC;? she continued. A dedicated Applied Museum Studies student, Anestasia Beelich was delighted to complete her 500 hours of work placement at the RMEO creating an exhibit from the ground up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I chose the RMEO, because I had volunteered here before, and I knew I wanted to do some exhibit development,â&#x20AC;? said Beelich. When she arrived at RMEO for her placement she says Shropshire gave her the topic, some research material, access to the Dental Car collection and told her to sit down and make a list of what she needed to create her dream exhibit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Realistically the final product is relatively close because it started from by blue print,â&#x20AC;? said Beelich. The biggest challenge, admitted Beelich was fundraising to get the exhibit she wanted with the limited budget the museum had. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Luckily there are a lot of small businesses in the area who donated time and material and allowed us to have more than we would have been able to afford with just the monetary budget,â&#x20AC;? said Beelich, who grew up in the

she felt was important. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that hands on, real life experience of panels not showing up on time that I think is the real learning,â&#x20AC;? said Shropshire. The exhibit will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday and visitors can get to the museum the usual way or take in the Home and Living Show and catch a full sized train from the community centre just west of the parking lot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there will be plenty of signage. The first train ride from the community centre will start at 10:30 a.m. and will cost $5 round trip, children free.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Due to Easter celebrations the regular council meeting was held April 22 at Smiths Falls Town Hall. It was preceded by a brief Committee of the Whole meeting to allow acting chief administrative officer (CAO) Steve Fournier and superintendant of works and utilities, Don Looby, to update council on recent developments. The town is currently accepting wastewater from Westportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wastewater lagoon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a meeting last Thursday morning to decide on an appropriate dump site in our system which we have determined to be Air Care Drive,â&#x20AC;? said Looby. There were four trucks a day running Friday, Saturday and Sunday dumping 40,000 litres each. As of Monday, the number of trucks ramped up to nine to 10 trucks running around the clock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be a non-stop operation until their levels have receded, unless we go into bypass ourselves at the Water Pollution Control Plant. We are bypassing right now but flows are being diverted into the combined sewer overflow tank so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being dealt with,â&#x20AC;? said Looby. He went on to inform council that should the town reach the point where they are bypassing to the river he will stopping the Westport trucks. Right now the number of loads is being tracked and the situation is being carefully monitored. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since 4 p.m. on Thursday Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been dealing with Scott Bryce (CAO/treasurer at Westport), and all decisions were made in the presence of MOE (Ministry of Environment) officials, they have been involved since the get go,â&#x20AC;? Fournier assured council. (See related story in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issue). CAO recruitment Fournier reminded council to complete and submit the CAO evaluation spreadsheets this week ahead of the April 28 meeting, to narrow down the applicant list to a short list for interviews. Emergency Preparedness Week During the regular council meeting, which began at 5:15 p.m., mayor Dennis Staples proclaimed May 4-10 Emergency Preparedness Week in Smiths Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I encourage everyone to educate themselves on emergency preparedness and to prepare a 72-hour emergency kit,â&#x20AC;? said Staples. May is Multiple Sclerosis Month â&#x20AC;&#x153;We commend the researchers and advocates of the MS Society and declare MS month in the town of Smiths Falls,â&#x20AC;? said Staples. Pitch-in April 19 to May 4, is the

national Pitch-in Canada week with the Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL) leading the charge in Smiths Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We invite all to pitch in, and help clean up our community,â&#x20AC;? said Staples. Potential flooding The Smiths Falls Emergency control group came together several times during the week of April 14, as potential floods seemed imminent and a plan of action had to be activated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to reiterate that people must stay away from heavy flows, because they pose a real danger,â&#x20AC;? said Staples. Spring construction The Otis development on Lombardy Road, which had been approved earlier this year, is now underway. The development encompasses the area where the LCBO is currently located and will include two additional retail businesses and a restaurant. The plan is to complete the sidewalks, parking areas and landscaping around the development as well. Some activity around the former South Unit of the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital has been observed and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected that demolition of the building will begin soon. The Hotel Rideau project is back on track, and the redevelopment of the historic building is expected this year. A ribbon cutting was scheduled for April 28. Building inspectors David L. Connelly and Peter Black have now been appointed as building inspectors for the Town of Smiths Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have full time building inspectors so we appoint qualified people to act as building inspectors as needed,â&#x20AC;? explained Coun. Dawn Quinn. Lower Reach Park A bylaw was passed allowing the town to single source the geotechnical work related to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MOE approved action plan to Water Earth Science Association (WESA). â&#x20AC;&#x153;It only makes sense to source the work to the company that did the work last year, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to re-educate a newcomer and pay for that learning curve,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Ken Graham. Refreshment vehicles (chip wagons) The fee structure for chip wagons and other refreshment vehicles in town is now official after the bylaw authorizing an amendment to Schedule A of Bylaw 8214-2009 was passed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the request of Councillor Quinn council revisited this bylaw and after consulting with the Chamber of Commerce and the DBA (Downtown Business Association) agreed to raise the fees from $350 to $500,â&#x20AC;? said Coun.

Smiths Falls accepts Westport’s excess wastewater for treatment hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community – As part of the Early Act program, sponsored by the Smiths Falls Rotary Club, students at Chimo Elementary School have been collecting items that were on the Lanark Animal Welfare Society’s (LAWS) wish list since March of this year. On April 28, the students arrived at LAWS with boxes of donations to spend a day cleaning up and helping at the shelter. From left back, Beath Searle, human education director with LAWS, Nathaniel Watson, Andrew McKenney, Chris Gardiner, Patrick Desjardine, and Melissa Lecari, teacher and Early Act co-ordinator. Front row from left: Jenica Thompson, Emily Thurston, Ainslee Levere, and Aiden Hawkins, the one Grade 7 student among all the Grade 8s.

News – Unusually high water levels this year have overloaded the Village of Westport’s wastewater lagoon causing it to discharge into the Rideau River. An order from the Ministry of Environment (MOE) to stop the discharge had Westport contacting surrounding municipalities looking for help with their dilemma. “A lot of snow and sump water has been diverted into our sewer system resulting in our volumes being significantly higher,” said Westport chief administrator officer (CAO) Scott Bryce. The solution was to truck the excess wastewater to a facility that could handle the volume, in accordance with the MOE order – in this case Smiths Falls was able to help. “Since 4 p.m. on Thursday (April 17), I’ve been dealing with Scott Bryce, and all decisions were made in the presence of MOE officials, they have been involved since the get go,” acting Smiths Falls CAO Steve Fournier, told council on Tuesday, April 22.

Westport to Smiths Falls and dumped into a manhole on Air Care Drive is partially treated according to Don Looby, superintendent of works and utilities. “It’s primary treated waste, so we’re not dealing with septage, that’s why we were able to take it,” said Looby. Westport had four trucks dumping 40,000 litres each running Friday, Saturday and Sunday and by Thursday there were six trucks running according to Bryce. The plan at this end is to accept as much of the Westport waste as possible unless Smiths Falls runs out of capacity. “We are bypassing right now but flows are being diverted into the Combined Sewer Overflow Tank so it’s is being dealt with,” said Looby, adding that if at any point it looks like they’ve reached levels where the overflow will go to the river he would stop the Westport trucks whether they were full or not. “We will continue to monitor the situation,” said Looby. Westport was expected to be hauling wastewater for seven to eight days, ramping up to a maximum of nine to 10 trucks a day if necessary until they got to what they considered normal

levels. “We looked at other municipalities with similar facilities, but the folks at the Smiths Falls plant were very helpful, and other municipalities would have been further away and would have been more expensive to truck the waste to,” said Bryce. This is not a recurring situation, according to Bryce. Westport has not had these water levels in more than 20 years and nobody remembers having to truck wastewater to another municipality before. “This is the first time that’s happened in at least a couple of decades,” said Bryce. The trucking had to be contracted out, according to Bryce and staff at Westport and Smiths Falls is currently working out a cost recovery model for the waste treatment. “We don’t want to gouge our neighbours but we do have to recover our costs,” Fournier told council as he sought council support to pursue the costing. A bylaw was subsequently passed authorizing Fournier to negotiate a rate for cost recovery. “We have an idea of cost, but have not yet received a formal bill,” Bryce said on April 24.

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - May 5, 1914 The new law which makes the municipality pay the hospital expenses of its indigent poor creates some peculiar situations; for instance: Brantford City Council will have to pay Hamilton $134 as a result of the “drunk” of a Brantford citizen. William Chevis of Brantford went to Hamilton and while there became intoxicated. Lying down in an alley-way he was run over by an automobile, and was taken to the hospital where he remained fourteen weeks. The bill was for the hospital expenses. and the settlement was advised by the Brantford city solicitor. 50 YEARS AGO - May 7, 1964

Water service to park pool delayed because of zoning, mayor refuses to allow vote Planning board is asked to take immediate steps. A playground pool for kiddies at Alexander Park in the town’s northeast corner, which the Lion’s Club is prepared to build, if the town will supply the water was the basis of a 90-minute debate during Monday night’s meeting of Town Council. The question of the zoning of the land raised by Councillor R. J. Beach and Mayor Arnold Gough, resulted in a severe disagreement between Mr. Beach and Councillor Bruno Moss who had brought in the bylaw to provide the water service. Mayor Gough refused to permit Council to vote on the bylaw when he learned the land is zoned light industrial.

Work begins on new skateboard park in town The efforts of the Skateboard Park Committee are finally coming to fruition with the start of construction on the new recreation facility near the Youth Arena Thursday, April 29. Whether or not costs will change for the site as well as how much fund-raising can be done, will determine when the park is completed. Smiths Falls Police Chief Larry Hardy, who is also a member of the park committee, notes that at some point in June the base should be in and the area fenced. Depending on what fund-raising can be completed in the summer months, the ramps may be built for the fall. Hardy emphasizes the fact progress will hinge on fund-raising and if there are any increases in the costs for the park. Compiled by HOWAIDA SOROUR

Celebrating Mother’s Day, birthday never a challenge Lifestyle – My mother has a birthday coming up – it’s the same weekend as Mother’s Day. It always happens that way. Two cards, from two kids, two grandkids… things happen in twos around the house when it’s Mother’s Day/mom’s birthday. I can’t even remember the year, but black forest cake seemed to be the cake of choice one year. She had planned a family barbecue and corralling my brother and me seemed to be the biggest challenge of the day. I think I was living in the Morrisburg area at the time, and brother was in…cognito maybe. Anyway, I thought it would be the daughterly thing to do – purchase the cake. I knew her favourite was black forest (it’s still some chocolate number, and this is the reason for my own challenge with chocolate). I even bought a funky glass cake plate. Way cool. Presentation is everything, my baker friends would agree. Coming home is always nostalgic, and my dad was barbecuing – with his winter coat on, so that tells me we didn’t have too great of weather back four score and 20 years ago either.

LAURIE WEIR Weir View Gram was there too, brother had made it and the birthday girl was doing what she does best – making macaroni salad. That’s one of the things she does best… there are hundreds of others, but at this time it was salad and stuff. I had my cake, ready for the big presentation under the glass plate, complete with chocolate shavings, cherries. Tadah! I said, giving her a smooch, a hug and a cake. “Oh wait until you see what I’ve got,” she says, all smiley-faced. She goes into the other room and brings out a…yes, a cake. The same flippin’ thing - glass cake plate, identical chocolate shavings, even the words Happy Birthday, written in red. There are photos somewhere in a shoebox.

Good Lord. Mine also had ‘Happy Birthday’ written on the top…in red. We do stuff like that all the time, Mom and I. Purchase handbags of the same colour/ style when we are worlds apart. Boots, yes, we both have similar pairs, again purchased in different locations when we weren’t shopping together. Sometimes, I’ll have a pain in my (insert any body part here) and she’ll have a similar twinge. “Of course you do,” she’d say. We’re pretty tight, my mom and I. She’s my shotgun passenger on Sunday drives, the one I call when I’m wound up from something or another, the one I seek advice from, the one who takes care of me when I’m sick, (still), and the one with whom I have silly fits of laughter. She’s my best friend, when my best friend isn’t available, and even if my BFF was right there, I’d still call Mom one of my besties. I don’t know what I’d do without her. Love you to bits, Mom. Happy birthday… happy Mother’s Day. Bring on the cake!

Area couple keeps positive attitude after Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis fight off infection. He has been in the hospital a few times, unable to fight off infection on his own. Jay left work and has been at home full time for the past two years. But this has allowed him time to do other things – like go to the YMCA of Brockville and Area every morning for a workout, as well as to spend more quality time with his children. The family has also fundraised for the MS Society Leeds Grenville Chapter. They have taken part in the annual fundraising walk, baked and sold cookies, made bracelets and more. The local MS Society chapter has been an excellent source of information and support, they said.

Lifestyle – Sue and Jay Imrie aren’t letting his 2006 diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis define them. The Maitland couple remains strong and steadfast with a positive attitude, dealing with life and any of its challenges head-on. “You keep going. You can’t give up and let a disease take over your life,” Sue said. Jay echoes the sentiments saying stress and negativity “can be your worst enemy.” While these parents of three children say there have been tough times, they are fortunate to have a strong support network there for them. “There is nothing we will not do because of MS,” Sue explained. Jay had been working at DuPont when he started noticing a numb spot in one of his legs. He had also started to slow down when running or playing men’s league hockey. He was having trouble skating, and didn’t know what was wrong. When there was a strike at DuPont and some job uncertainty, he took a job in Ottawa. After years of trying to figure out what was happening to his body, he was sent to a specialist in the city. “The doctor in Ottawa gave me the news,” Jay remembered. “It came as a big shocker.”

Challenges Some of the challenges they have faced have included getting medication right, as well as dosages. They have been managing with a family doctor and neurologist. Jay is also taking part in a clinical drug trial in Ottawa, which sees him undergoing various tests on a regular basis. Jay has had to get a cane. A scooter has allowed him and the family to go on walks around the block. “We do everything other families do, just a little differently,” Sue said with a smile. And he has taken to using a lot of sticky notes, he laughed. His memory has been affected, as has his ability to walk and see. His immune system has been weakened, making it difficult to

May is MS Awareness Month and MS flags will be flown at town halls in locations such as Kemptville and Smiths Falls. In Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples has declared May Multiple Sclerosis Awareness month as has Perth Mayor John Fenik.

Sue and Jay Imrie, of Maitland, have dealt positively with his diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis since 2006. The couple continues to fundraise for MS society campaigns and intend on taking part in the annual walk, the Brockville Mandarin MS Walk, May 25.

Diagnosis It took five years to get the diagnosis as symptoms can be similar to other conditions, noted Sue. And what also added to the difficulty in determining what was happening with Jay was his diagnosis of Primary Progressive MS. Five per cent of people with MS have this particular type, he said. PPMS as described by the National MS Society’s website is “Characterized by steady worsening of neurologic functioning, without any distinct relapses (also called attacks or exacerbations) or periods of remission.” Progression of the disease is continuous however. “It was a shock to the family for sure,” Sue said. “Once we knew what it was we could start healing and figure out how to deal with this.” Jay himself went through a period of grieving, denial, then anger, she recalled. He ended up losing around 40 pounds, but has since gained the weight back in muscle. Sue feels they are leading a healthier lifestyle than they had been previous to Jay’s diagnosis.

Local campaigns Two MS Society campaigns are coming up very soon – the 38th annual MS Carnation Campaign will take place from May 8 to 10 throughout the area. Carnation bouquets and plants will be sold at various locations such as banks, grocery stories, LCBOs and public spaces, just in time for Mother’s Day. The cost of a mini bouquet is $5; regular bouquets are $6 each or two for $10. The goal is to reach $12,000 through sales.

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Smiths Falls Lions presented two Ferno first aid kits to Rideau Search and Rescue last week to help the team in their searches of missing persons. Pictured are some of the rescue team members (about one-third of them) along with Lions members Stan Suffel, president, and Wilf Toop.

Lions donate two field kits to Rideau Search and Rescue By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rideau Search and Rescue got a little relief of its own last week when the Smiths Falls Lions Club donated for use, two field first aid kits. Stan Suffel, president of the Lions Club, said it was an opportunity to help the ground crew who attend search and rescue incidents in the area when called upon by police, fire departments or EMS crews to help in finding missing persons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They get little funding and do a lot of great work,â&#x20AC;? Suffel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was something we decided to do as a club. Betty Laronde was the driving force behind this donation.â&#x20AC;? For SAR president Bruce Lortie, he said it was a welcomed shot in the arm and one of the main items on their wish list. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We approached the service clubs to some help since we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get funding,â&#x20AC;? said Lortie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are most grateful for the Lions Club support.â&#x20AC;? In terms of field kits, this is the top of the line, said Colleen Guerard, SARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public relations person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best you can get,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kits are worth about $350 to $400 each so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

thankful to be able to get these for the team.â&#x20AC;? The volunteer Rideau Search and Rescue crew is a group of about 40 strong now. They also have a mounted unit (members on horseback), along with a canine addition, Rebel, a year-old German shepherd owned by Dan Beaulieu, the former president of this group. Beaulieu has taken the position of president of the Ontario Search and Rescue Volunteer Association, but is still an active member locally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the horses with the crew about two years now, and Rebel just came on board,â&#x20AC;? he said, while the pup sat obediently â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the most part â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at his heel. Rebelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great addition, Beaulieu added, with some early training from a puppy, he is a natural rescue dog. Rebel will soon be in Orillia with his handler to be trained and certified as a police dog. That will happen when the dog is about two years old. SAR is a community-supported rescue team that is dispatched with the Ontario Provincial Police, fire or emergency service workers, specifically for the Lanark County area. They attend approximately three incidents a year, but are in training constantly. Located at the Gallipeau Centre, the group meets regularly for training and instruction â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both in the field and

in the classroom. The team also participates in educational programs, according to their website, such as AdventureSmart, which combines online and on-site awareness with targeted outreach to try to reduce the number and severity of search and rescue incidents. They teach a Hug-a-Tree and Survive Program. This presentation is aimed at children in grades kindergarten through Grade 6. It instructs children how not to become lost in the wilderness, and what to do if they should become lost. Lortie added that the group helps with functions such as security at the Smiths Falls Bears games, crowd and traffic control at Lanark County parades, and are even seen at the Merrickville car show helping behind the scenes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are huge in the community,â&#x20AC;? Lortie says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want more people to know about us and what we do, so we like to be available for functions as well as search and rescue.â&#x20AC;? The Lions Club has offered to run a ball tournament for SAR, which will take place in August. More details will come as they are available.

Your knowing eyes, your beautiful smile, your contagious laugh, your compassion and caring of others is never forgotten, because you are always walking with us today, tomorrow and eternity. All my love always Donna XO

DUBERVILLE, Mikey – For our special Mikey who passed away May 2, 2002. A thousand words can’t bring you back, We know because we have tried.

Lots of love Mikey Mommy and Daddy

IN MEMORIAM

DAY, James – In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and greatgrandfather who passed away May 3, 2012. As time goes on without you, And the days turn into years, They hold a million memories, And a thousand silent tears. To us you were so special, What more is there to say, Except to wish with all our hearts, That you were here today. Lovingly remembered By wife Lois and children Linda, Bob, Eric, Gary and their families

DIXON, Duane, In loving memory of a dear husband, Duane, who passed away on May 7, 1995. Memories are treasures, No one can steal, Death leaves heartaches No one can heal. Some may forget, Now you are gone But I will remember, No matter how long Forever loved and missed dearly, Joan.

KEAN, Brian - In loving memory of a dear son, brother and uncle who passed away May 3, 2008. Memories are treasures No one can steal Death leaves a heartache No one can heal. Some may forget you Now that you’re gone, But we will remember you Brian No matter how long. Lovingly remembered, sadly missed Mom and family

CRAWFORD – In fond and loving memory of the best husband and father in the world, Orval Crawford who passed away May 3, 2003. They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal, But neither time nor reason, Will change the way we feel. For no one knows the heartache, That lies behind our smiles, No one knows how many times, We have broken down and cried. We want to tell you something, So there won’t be any doubt, You’re so wonderful to think about, But so hard to be without. Too dearly loved to ever be forgotten, by his loving wife Dolly and family

Through solid leadership and quality, trustworthy service, he built a cohesive department that meets the procurement needs of our staff and students. AUCTIONS

“I think probably the time is right for me and my family more than anything else,” he said of his decision to retire. “I have the same keenness for work that I always did because I really do like my job. But I don’t have the same energy that I had 20 years ago.” MacLaren says what he is most proud of in his 16 years of service to the UCDSB was his role in the construction and equipping of a dozen schools, including our newest secondary schools – Russell High School, Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute, Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute, and North Grenville District High School. His role has been in preparing tender documents, purchasing land, equipping the schools with desks, SMART boards, chairs and other necessary items, as well as the sale of surplus schools. “I can’t say that I enjoyed any one project over the other, they were all great,” said MacLaren, a certified supply chain management professional. “It was always fun to see one finished, to see it glowing shiny and new, and to think how great it was for kids to go in there to learn.” MacLaren says he enjoyed working with a board that focusses its work through strategic planning. “I think the board’s strategic plan is excellent,” he said. “Why I say that is that it doesn’t matter what you do in this organization, everybody can connect to a 90 per cent graduation rate. We are here as a department to support kids in the classrooms by supporting our schools and our teachers so they can carry out their jobs.” MacLaren oversaw the purchasing team during a time of a major AUCTIONS

program change – the introduction of full-time kindergarten. Over the past five years his team has equipped full-time classes at all of our elementary schools – purchasing a range of items including: children’s sand and water tables, new blackboards, Smart boards, iPads, cubbies, and child-safe coat hooks. The task has been a challenge at times with “many balls in the air.” MacLaren credits a solid purchasing team for helping him be successful. “I’ve always been blessed with very good staff,” he said. In fact, MacLaren says it is the people at the board he will miss most. “I have had the opportunity to work with some of the brightest, most hard-working people I have ever met. A lot of hard work goes on in this place in support of kids that people really don’t see.” The 59-year-old says he has nothing major planned for his retirement. He just wants to spend more time with family – something he has always considered important during his 39-year marriage to wife Chris. He also wants to while away the days boating from his home on Otty Lake, watching his beloved Montreal Canadiens on Saturday nights, and teeing off on area golf courses. When he says goodbye in June, MacLaren says he will have no regrets. “I’m a very fortunate person,” he reflects. “I get up every morning and I really enjoy coming in to work. A lot of people are in jobs where they just can’t say that.” Current assistant manager of purchasing, Brad Notman, has been promoted to replace MacLaren. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

It is a disease than has an unknown cause, it does not have a cure, but it is the most common neurological disease in Canada, diagnosing an average of three new people a day. It affects people physically, emotionally and it lasts a lifetime. Although the average age group being diagnosed is 15 to 40 years of age, children as young as two have been diagnosed so it can appear really at any age. As the month of May is MS Awareness Month, Perth volunteers are holding their 38th Mothers Day Carnation Campaign which is one of their largest fundraising projects, said Brenda Dube, chair. Volunteers will be selling carnations on May 8 and 9 (the Thursday and Friday prior to Mother’s

Day weekend) as they support the Leeds and Grenville chapter. Prices for the flowers will be the same as last year: $5 for mini bouquets and $6 for the regular sized flowers or two bunches for $10. Donations are always accepted and welcomed as well and volunteers can arrange for receipts to be issued. To support the campaign, you can purchases carnations in Perth from volunteers at Barnabe’s YIG, Brownlee’s Metro, LCBO, Royal Bank & Scotiabank during the main business hours of each location. Dube says that last year’s the chapter raised more than $26,000 “and we would love to do that again to manage the services they offer.” Several local businesses have also placed

Rural business needs to embrace social media to thrive, survive By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

R0012651268_0417

Nataleigh Ballantyne, a technology coach and social media strategist spoke at the “Social Media Seminar for Rural Business,” hosted by MPP Randy Hillier, at the Best Western Plus Hotel on Tuesday, April 22. to see what people are saying about you online. It has never been easier to reach your demographic.” She pointed to statistics which show just how much Canadians are now using social media to make personal business decisions: • 60 per cent of all Canadians now have a social media profile, • 48 per cent of all Canadians with a social media profile like or follow at least one brand or company on a social media site, • 90 per cent of consumers back brands after interacting via social media, • the average income of a Pinterest user is $100,000 annually, • The average age of a Pinterest user is 25 to 36, • 77 per cent of smartphone users use their phone to research a product, • 89 per cent of those smartphone users search for local information. But knowing your audience is crucial to know which platform to use. “Teens are not into Facebook,” she revealed. “They are into SnapChat.” Other social media sites have multiple uses. “YouTube is great because you can share that video on most of your platforms,” she said. “That content can be re-used and reused.” While every business does not need to be utilizing every site, instead using sites where your customers already congregate online, when it comes to LinkedIn, she could not talk it up enough. “Everybody should be on LinkedIn,” she said. “The second thing that pops up (when you Google your name) will be your LinkedIn,” profile, hopefully after your business web site. She also stressed that brevity is also crucial in an online profile.

“Describe your business in two sentences,” she said. “You have 20 seconds to tell me what you do before I turn the page.” Businesses like Canadian Tire are turning their attention to their top percentile of shoppers, those who purchase the highest-end products, and the greatest amount of them. Many other businesses – and even political parties, like the federal Conservatives or Alberta’s Progressive Conservatives – create fictional characters, representatives of their target customer, or, voter. Chatelaine magazine’s target reader is, in fact, a real person, a suburban mother from the Greater Toronto Area. Lululemon, however, created the persona of Ocean. “She is Lululemon’s ideal client,” she said. “Every time they make black stretch pants, they are not just making black stretch pants. They are making black stretch pants for her,” with a personality profile that includes income level, gender, age, education, and even travel preferences. Some target audiences can have little idiosyncrasies. “Midnight is when real estate agents are online because you guys don’t need sleep, apparently,” she said. So, if she were targeting that audience, she would post around the midnight hour, when they are most likely to see it. Just as local businesses like McLean Insurance use family photos, hockey ticket give-aways and contests to drive its online presence, she encouraged other local businesses to “always share a photo or video. If you don’t have a reason for me to stop and browse, I will just scroll right past,” so, avoiding pages of only text is to be avoided. Reflecting your personality online is also important.

“You can’t fool anybody online,” she said. She pointed to the most popular post on Hillier’s web site last year – it was nothing even remotely political but was, rather, the announcement of Hillier’s new grandson. She encouraged a mix of 70 per cent fun posts, and 30 per cent more serious articles to post. She admitted that Facebook can be “a huge distractor,” and that 40 minutes can easily slip away, which is why she urged businesses to set aside an afternoon a month to plot out their social media strategy for the coming four weeks, including when articles or photos or video are posted. “Social media is like a pet. You need to grow the pet, nurture the pet, engage the pet,” she said. “(But) think of all the love you get from the pet.” Towards the end of her speech, Perth businesses showed just how good they can be at selling themselves, when Ballantyne mentioned most of her friends were getting married and that her boyfriend of eight years – seated around the corner, working on his laptop – had yet to ask her to marry him. “No pressure,” she joked, before an audience member pointed out that Burns Jewellers was less than a block away. Another called out that Perth is the self-appointed wedding capital of eastern Ontario. In introducing Ballantyne, Hillier said that rural businesses needed to get on board the social media juggernaut, since they were already facing significant challenges as it is. “For many years, we have seen our market place diminishing, and our resources and people going to urban areas,” he said. But with social media, “you can be anywhere, work anywhere.”

Business – Nataleigh Ballantyne knows that she is the one. She’s the one you want, the one you are looking for, and, if you are lucky, she is looking for you, online no less. “I am your target market online,” the technology coach and social media strategist said last week, before a business crowd of about 80 at the “Social Media Seminar for Rural Business.” The event was hosted by Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier, at the Best Western Plus Hotel on Tuesday, April 22. “I am a visitor to Perth. I do fun things here in Perth, but I don’t live here.” So where does she go for her information about what to see and do in Perth? Online, of course. But for some businesses, the new social media tools, from Twitter to Instagram, YouTube to Facebook, SnapChat to Digg, can be confusing and scary. “If you don’t know what a hashtag is, don’t worry,” she said, encouraging them to be selective. “If your audience is not on Twitter, don’t jump on Twitter. Ballantyne is also the former director of communications for the Economic Club of Canada, and has also worked with the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts and RE/MAX Ontario/ Atlantic. She was also a former onair personality at CFMK 96 FM, a classic rock station in Kingston, and so is not unfamiliar with eastern Ontario – including the technology lag felt in some areas. One attendee noted that she does not have access to high-speed Internet in her part of Mississippi Mills. “That could be an issue,” said Ballantyne. Hillier jumped in to note that 95 per cent of the county had access to high-speed Internet – with hopes to chip away at the remaining five per cent. For all of the time that one spends tending to your businesses’ social media presence, there is a payoff, even if only with your bottom line. “It is a lot of time,” she admitted, “but it is not a lot of money: free.” She was also quick to caution that, unlike an ad in the newspaper, a straight sales pitch, online “is not a marketing stream. It is a conversation. If I use you to sell my house, I want to be able to tell my friends to use you. We (consumers) are telling people about the experience. We are having a conversation, before we get into a hard sell. They are customers and clients, but they are also people.” Even though some businesses may feel weird about putting their photograph online, Ballantyne urged them to make the plunge since a customer walking into their store is going to see their face anyway. She used Hillier as an example. “If I just wandered into Fiddleheads and I saw him there, I would know him from online… and I could approach him,” she said. You can keep the conversation going by using Twitter, for example, where “you can tweet and respond back to them,” to let them “get to know you… It’s very easy

Wrestling legend the Honky Tonk Man lands in Smiths Falls May 10 hsorour@perfprint.ca

Sports – Smiths Falls Fight Night is taking place May 10, and the legendary Honky Tonk Man is looking forward to being back with Great North Wrestling. “Devon runs a really good organization and he puts on good shows for good causes,” said Roy Wayne Farris a.k.a. the Honky Tonk Man over the phone from his home in Gilbert, Arizona. Great North Wrestling, run by Devon Nicholson has been organizing wrestling shows since 2007 and in those years has had more than 100 events. “The Honky Tonk Man has been in about 30 or our events, because he’s a great entertainer, and as a former WWE champion in the 80’s he’s a good draw,” said Nicholson, adding, “he’s very good with kids. He always does pictures and autographs with his fans but with kids he takes fun pictures, he’s just really good with them,” said Nicholson. In 1987 the Honky Tonk Man was the WWF wrestling champion for a record 64 weeks. He’s looking forward to what he describes as a traditional wrestling event, intimate and family friendly at the arena. Even though he does anywhere from 40

The Honky Tonk Man to 50 shows a year all over North America, Farris says he still gets a kick out of it. “I really enjoy it, at the end of May, I’ll have put in 37 years and it’s still exciting,” said Farris. “I love what I do. It’s a fountain of youth for me.” Most of Farris’s weekends are spent doing shows somewhere in North America. On April 26 he was in Jackson, Ohio and next weekend he’ll be in Columbus, Ohio and then it’s Smiths Falls. “I’m on the road 38 weekends of the year, because you know Monday to Friday I’m back in the retirement home playing shuffleboard with wrap around glasses,”

he jokes. Farris is no stranger to Canada, and not just on a professional level. “I lived off and on in Calgary for five years, my wife is a Calgarian, Canadian and my son was born in Canada. Both my kids are Canadian citizens,” said Farris. Since most of his gigs are on weekends given that there aren’t a lot of wrestling events happening on weekdays he gets to enjoy a few rounds of golf. “Down here I can golf all year round, and it’s walking distance, so as soon as I get off the phone, I’m going to walk on over there and play me a round of golf,” said Farris. So what will the Honky Tonk Man bring to Smiths Falls? “Well I’m coming up to wrestle of course, but I might sing, and someone could end up wearing a guitar for a necklace,” he growls. Both the singing and the guitar necklace are of course Honky Tonk signatures ever since the days when he wrestled Hulk Hogan and Jake (The Snake) Roberts. “That’s his gimmick, the Elvis impersonation. In fact when he first started out, they figured the Elvis gimmick would brand him as a good guy, but it didn’t and

he still got booed every time he appeared so they kept his bad boy persona with the Elvis twist,” explains Nicholson. So while Honky Tonk Man entertains the crowds, Nicholson will be making his first return to the ring right here in town after a three-year hiatus and face off against the current and three year reigning Heavy Weight Champion Jeremy Prophet.

Tickets to Fight Night at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre are $15 - $25 in advance, going up by $5 at the door; $2 from every ticket sold will go to the Gerry Lowe Memorial Foundation as will the proceeds from the 50/50 draw that night. Tickets are available at the arena, at Rideau Winery in town and from ticketweb.ca.

Smiths Falls high school athlete joins Ottawa Knights to play baseball By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Darius Cameron has secured himself a spot on the pitcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mound for a competitive AA Ottawa baseball team. On April 26, the young Smiths Falls pitcher was at the Ottawa Stadium playing with his team, the U18 AA Ottawa Knights, against the AA lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Attak de Gatineau during Baseball Day in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fergie Jenkins (was) there to throw the first pitch at the Ottawa Stadium,â&#x20AC;? said the 17-yearold who has joined the Ottawa Knights and was among the few double AA players selected to participate in the AAA Knights Spring Training program in Florida. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went to Fort Pierce, Florida for March Break, and played five games against university teams,â&#x20AC;? said Darius. New to the Ottawa Knights, Darius didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anyone on the team when he hopped onto the bus for the 32-hour non-stop ride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the guys were coming back to the team, and they treated me like I was already on the team. By the time I got back from Florida I knew everyone,â&#x20AC;? he said. The Grade 11 SFDCI student has played both hockey and baseball in Smiths Falls since he was a young child. He even tried out for the Perth Blue Wings at one point, but though he made it to the final cut he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get on the team. Then earlier this year, he found out he could try out for the Ottawa Knights Baseball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was only going to cost $20 to go to tryouts and so it was worth it to go and get that practice Photo by HOWAIDA SOROUR in before the season started and loosen up my arm,â&#x20AC;? Darius said. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also planning to go to the Major League Darius Cameron has joined the Ottawa Knights AA team and was one of the few selected Baseball scouting session this summer. to join the AAA spring training session in Florida over March Break.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was throwing in the bullpen and I hit 68 mile per hour with my knuckleball â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that was one of my proudest moments,â&#x20AC;? said Darius. There arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of knuckleball pitchers around, according to Kevin and few that master that speed with that particular pitch. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the entire game and the camaraderie of the bench that Darius really enjoys. The soft spoken and quiet teenager, figures he has most of the attributes that make a good player. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mess up, field a ball well, be a contact hitter, be able to hit all the gaps on the field, be able to throw the ball accurately, have a good attitude and (be) a good team player,â&#x20AC;? said Darius. This is the young manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first year playing competitive baseball but he still plans to play with the Smiths Falls Redmen this year as well, when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not on the road with the Knights. His next big event will be playing at the Montreal Mizuno June 6 to 8 and then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off to Chatham July 18 to 20. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the competition,â&#x20AC;? said Darius.

SFDCI students head to Canada-Wide Science Fair in Windsor, May 10-17 By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community – It’s proving to be a golden year for Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute. Two students from SFDCI have won gold at the Rideau St. Lawrence Science Fair and will be travelling to Windsor, Ont., from May 10 to May 17 to the Canada-Wide Science Fair. Mackenzie Gamman and Kathleen Tones, both Grade 10 students, won first place in the intermediate division and best of fair overall with a chemistry experiment that has an environmental component. “We wanted to see how different ingredients in dish soap would affect plant growth,” said Gamman. The students took four popular dish soap brands and used three different concentrations of each to water plants. They found that all but one dish soap either inhibited plant growth or killed them within 20 days. “We found out that Green Works didn’t affect the plants in a bad way and didn’t affect the plants at all,” said Gamman. Although the two students were surprised to be named best in fair, they know they had a good presentation. “We had a really good real life application and the thinking behind the experiment was quite complex, so that helped,” said Tones. An excellent working rapport also helped because they’ve been working on this since November to get ready first for the school science fair and then having won that, preparing for the Rideau St. Lawrence Science Fair. Now they’re

vironment teacher who mentored them through the entire process. With each repetition they’ve been able add more depth to their study; learn more about their subject. “We’re doing a lot more research on the soap ingredients and how they affect the environment, plants and animals,” said Tones, who plans to pursue veterinary medicine. “And we’re reading articles on the subject of soap ingredients and what is happening today and what was used in the past,” said Gamman, who plans to pursue physiotherapy and sports medicine. The two girls are looking forward to their all-expenses paid trip to Windsor to represent SFDCI, but they were not the only SFDCI winners at the Rideau St. Lawrence Fair. The overall silver medalists at the regional fair were also SFDCI students. Grade 12 students Ben Ireland and Jordan Taylor took first place in the senior division and second place overall at the fair with their experiment “Just Ignore It.” Their life science experiment looked at how distractions affected people’s performance. While another SFDCI student Destiny Perry took third place in the senior division. The awards accumulated by the SFDCI teams at the regional fair also earned the high school the regional Secondary School Achievement Award. “The award is granted each year in recognition of the high school that accumulates the greatest number of individual awards at the regional level,” said Steve Hall, history, civics and guidance teacher at SFDCI.

St. John Ambulance volunteers celebrate with dinner, honours and awards By DOREEN BARNES

News – Guest speaker at the St. John Ambulance Annual General Meeting and awards night was vice chair of community duty for St. John Ontario Council, Armand LaBarge. “One of the reasons, we are gathered here this evening is to honour the countless hours, days, weeks and years that the people in the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Branch of St. John Ambulance have selflessly contributed to make this community and other counties in the United Counties and Lanark, a safer place to live and to raise a family,” said LaBarge. Each spring, the local St. John Ambulance Branch recognizes the dedication and volunteerism of their members by presenting certificates, trophies and awards. Among these awards is the prestigious Major C.B.C. Broadbent Award, given to the individual who most embodies the organization’s core purpose. “She has always been a very dedicated member of St. John Ambulance,” said chief of community service, Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Branch of St. John Ambulance, Bud Eyre. “Besides her dedication to St. John Ambulance, she works as a community nurse and always has a smile for everyone. She exemplifies what a St. John member should be. She’s eager to learn, eager to help and eager to please. This year’s winner is Vera Dulysh.” Dulysh is a Kingston resident who travels back and forth to attend meetings and to perform her duties. Other members in the adult cat-

Recipient of the Major C.B.C. Broadbent Award of Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Branch of St. John Ambulance was Vera Dulysh (right) as congratulated by past chairperson Laura Noonan. Dulysh received this prestigious award due to her continued eagerness to learn, help and caring attitude.

egory received certificates, awards and trophies for service duty hours, most duty hours, best new member and the Col. W. S. Watson Award. Car seat technicians with the St. John Ambulance’s Child Car Seat Clinic were acknowledged for their tireless work. A key announcement with re-

gards to the Child Car Seat Clinic was the new partnership with Brockville’s Canadian Tire. With this support, the Child Car Seat Clinic will be held at the Canadian Tire location. Moving onto the youth, one by one they were recognized with certificates, proficiency badges, spe-

cial service shield, the most duty hours, the Dame Lloyd Award and the Bud and Kim Eyre Award. In addition to honouring the people on the St. John Ambulance brigade, Sophie, a four-legged volunteer and her handler Alison Robb received a Certificate of Appreciation in recognition of the fine

work this pair did and do, as part of the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog program. Sophie is well known at Sherwood Park Manor and the two BACLA (Brockville and Area Community Living Association) homes in Mallorytown and according to Robb, looks forward to her visits. In LaBarge’s speech, he noted that for over a century St. John volunteers have been dedicated to the vision of helping Canadians to improve their health, their safety, their quality of life by providing services and first aid training. “While the financial contributions of St. John community services volunteers could be calculated in the millions of dollars, I think the contribution that we make in the safety of Canadians is not measurable,” said LaBarge. “When you take into account 13 million Canadians devote almost three billion hours to their volunteer activities; that’s the equivalent of 1.1 million full-time jobs here in Canada.” He continued to say that the 13 million included the 52 SJA volunteers at the local branch who contributed about 17,000 hours of volunteer service to the community. In Ontario alone, 5,000 volunteers covered more than 4,500 public events which represent more than 240,000 medical personnel response volunteer hours. This didn’t include the therapy dog program, the youth training, car seat and other services. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Branch of St. John Ambulance is on duty at various events throughout the region which is a vital service to local communities.

GET ALL MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY INVOLVED IN YOUR CHARITABLE GIVING the perfect amount to leave children is enough “money so that they would feel they could do anything, but not so much that they could do nothing. ” One of the most challenging estate planning questions that parents have to wrestle with is how much of their estate should they leave to their children. As Warren Buffet once famously remarked,

Once parents have provided an appropriate amount of financial support to their children, they are often motivated to give back to the community. An increasing number of Canadian families are establishing family foundations in order to encourage all family members to get involved in the family’s charitable giving.

A private foundation is particularly well-suited to a family situation. Family members can be directors or trustees of the foundation and play an active role in deciding how funds will be managed and what charities will be supported by the foundation. Families find that the foundation keeps the family connected and parents can pass along their beliefs and values to children and grandchildren.

Apart from bringing the family together t Significant tax planning opportunities in order to promote charitable giving, a for the family. private family foundation has numerous Although there are costs associated with other benefits including: the establishment of a family foundation, t The ability of the family to decide on a number of financial institutions can an ongoing basis which charitable assist families with the establishment of organizations it will support; a foundation and many of the ongoing t The opportunity to create a legacy which administrative services. will continue once the parents have passed away;

Sometimes it’s a tough road to tow for roadside assistance Lifestyle – A local reader wrote in recently to outline some difficulties he had this past winter with a roadside assistance provider. On a particularly cold day in early December, he called the Volkswagen Canada roadside assistance office to report his still-under-warranty VW wouldn’t start in his driveway. They contacted their service provider, CAA, who dispatched a local truck. Our VW owner was surprised to learn that the tow truck wasn’t equipped with booster cables, and was only prepared to tow the vehicle to the nearest VW dealership. While the VW was being loaded on the flat/tilt bed truck, our owner reports he warned the tow operator that the front bumper cover was coming close to being struck on the bed of the truck. The driver ignored his comment and the bumper did scrape on the platform causing some damage. At this time the tow operator presented a damage waiver for the VW owner to sign. He naturally refused and the vehicle was deposited back into his driveway. The vehicle was eventually started and our owner took the vehicle soon after to a body shop to repair the damage at a cost of $180. When he presented this invoice to the towing company’s office looking for reimbursement, they refused, telling him to take the matter up with his own liability insurance. He figured the only recourse left was to seek a judgment through the Small Claims Court and as he was filling out the paperwork, he decided to report all this to VW Canada. VW Canada did an investigation and determined our owner merited reimbursement and sent him a cheque for the full amount. He was happy with that side of the story, but wonders what might have happened if he was stranded on a lonely highway in a blizzard. He also questioned the ethics of asking for a

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER damage waiver to be signed after his car was damaged. I forwarded his email to me (with his permission) to both the towing company and VW Canada and asked for their response. The towing company provided a rather terse response indicating they had forwarded my inquiry to their lawyer and nothing further was heard from them. However VW Canada provided this response for the record: “Thank you for the opportunity to address this issue. I’m very sorry that this customer has had a negative experience, but am gratified that Volkswagen Canada was able to resolve the matter to his satisfaction. Our roadside assistance program is administered by a third party, and we expect the same level of service our customers do when dealing with us directly. I spoke with a representative there and here was the response, which I believe is quite excellent: The standard industry practice to request a customer’s signature on a waiver form is solely for purpose of confirming pre-existing damage prior to the vehicle being towed. Once the service has been rendered, it is too late for the service provider to request that the customer sign a damage waiver. Volkswagen Roadside Assistance has a process in place to

review and investigate any allegations made against service providers; and we endeavor to take corrective actions to guarantee complete customer satisfaction. Safety and security is number one priority when providing roadside assistance services to our customers. Any actions by a service provider that would preclude the customers’ safety would be dealt with accordingly. I think that we, from our end, have done a good job with this customer and hope that he has many happy years of motoring.” Thomas Tetzlaff, Volkswagen Canada It’s not very useful advice to simply say, deal with a service provider you know and trust in a situation like this. Few consumers ever develop a repeat customer relationship with a tow-truck operator and both groups seldom meet under the best circumstances. As well almost no stranded motorist knows in advance, which operator will be dispatched to his or her assistance. When making a call for roadside on a bitterly cold winter day, advise the operator whether or not your vehicle is on the side of the road or in the driveway at home. This will let them properly prioritize calls. If you suspect only a boost is required, ask if the truck can provide that service or if your vehicle must be towed. I wouldn’t sign any property damage waiver until I could first document the present condition of the property. Since most of us are tethered to a cell phone or at least have a camera, take photos to protect both yourself and the tow operator. If you run into a concern, take it up with the agency that you first communicated with. As our VW owner found out, the carmaker seemed to be more interested in his satisfaction

than the towing company. With stories like this it’s no surprise that the following action hasn’t been initiated before. The Ontario government recently announced new legislation on tow truck operators to regulate both them and car storage facilities. The proposed new rules would require tow truck operators and storage providers to: A) Have permission from a consumer or someone acting on behalf of the consumer before charging for towing and storage services. B) Publicly post prices and other information, like the operator’s name and contact information. C) Accept credit card payments from consumers. D) Provide an itemized invoice listing the services provided and the total cost. “We are strengthening consumer protection for drivers involved in traffic collisions or in need of roadside assistance. Drivers should have the confidence that the tow truck operator helping them is reputable and will treat them fairly,” Tracy McCharles, Ontario Minister of Consumer Services commented. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@hotmail.ca listing ‘Question for the Car Counsellor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O.

would have been 100 years old this year. As a rising comic magician in Atlanta, Ga., Mullica met Skelton in the early 1980’s. They began a lasting, personal relationship that included some valuable advice from veteran to protégé : clean up the language, avoid jokes built on negative racial stereotypes, and always perform as though there are children in the crowd. After Skelton’s death in 1997, Mullica penned a show in tribute to his good friend.

Skelton’s daughter Valentina saw the show for the first time last year. “I thought it was my dad on stage, but it was Tom. His mannerisms and gestures were just like my father’s” she said. “What a treat to see a true impressionist.” Tickets to the show are $45.00 plus tax. They are available at the Gallipeau Centre Theatre (1-888-6559090). Part of the proceeds from the show will go to the Kinsmen Club. For more information visit www. freedomhouse.ca.

eloved entertainer Red Skelton charmed audiences for decades with hilarious characters such as Clem Kadiddlehopper, the Mean Widdle Kid and Freddy the Freeloader. On May 7 at the Gallipeau Centre Theatre, tribute artist Tom Mullica will perform a one-man show bringing these and other characters to life. “Good Night and May God Bless: A Tribute to Red Skelton” aims to capture the gentle sweetness and improvisational genius of the late comedy legend, who

Let the sounds of spring be heard on Blueberry Mountain May 11 ing, The public will have an opportunity to experience some of these amazing sounds at this year’s Spring Nature Walk on Blueberry Mountain scheduled for Sunday, May 11. The theme for this event is Let Their Voices Be Heard and visitors will be offered a hands-on experience using the Soundscapes equipment and be introduced to this exciting way of relating to nature with Chad Clifford, bioacoustics technician. Howard Clifford will make a short presentation on the importance of listening to complement the nature experience. As Soundscapes pioneer Bernie Kraus has asserted, “A picture may be worth a thousand words but a natural soundscape is worth a thousand pictures.” The Spring Nature Walk on Blueberry Mountain is an annual fundraiser for the MMLTC which works to legally protect properties as nature reserves for future generations. This beautiful 1,250-acre wilderness property, called cliffLAND after the Clifford family who placed it under protection with the land trust in 2009, had more than 1,000 visitors last year. Blueberry Mountain lies on the highest

range in Lanark County and provides an incredible 180° vista from the lookout at its peak. It has been named by county residents as one of the Seven Wonders of Lanark County. Registration for the Spring Nature Walk begins at 9:30 a.m. on May 11 and the Soundscaping opportunities and the guided hike up the mountain starts at 10 a.m. sharp. A donation of $10 per person (children under 12 are free) will go towards maintenance of the land trust’s protected properties. It takes about 45 minutes to reach the mountaintop following a gentle slope, with only one short, steep climb at

the top. Certificates are awarded those 80 and over and to children who make the trek. Blueberry Mountain boasts a large membership in its kids’ clubs and also has a growing membership in its 80 plus club. Refreshments will be served following the hike. CliffLAND is located at 502 Hills of Peace Road in Flower Station and a map with directions may be downloaded at the MMLTC website at www.mmltc.ca. For more information, call the Clifford family at 613-259-3412. Submitted by the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy.

Community – One of the first sounds that heralds the coming of spring is the evocative honking of Canada Geese returning from their long migration. Long before we spot their arrival in the classic V-shaped formation, we hear their instantly recognizable calls. There has been much study into the hidden meanings and purpose of all this honking, and indeed of many animal sounds. The study of the sounds of animals, as well as the positive and negative effects of sound in their environments, is called bioacoustics. Bioacoustics is a relatively new branch of science which uses cutting-edge technology to record and analyze the sounds of wildlife. Thanks to a grant from the TD Friends of the Environment, the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC) has been able to purchase some of this equipment and software and to hire a bioacoustics technician to help launch a wildlife monitoring program on its protected properties. In addition to the monitoring, the Land Trust has purchased equipment to enhance the sounds of nature for individual listen-

CECC union says ministry taking pre-emptive action to prepare to lock out employees months ahead of contract talks scheduled for the October negotiation time, noting that he feels the ministry always stresses that staff are looking for increased wages. “It’s not about that, it’s about the safety of the public as a whole,” as well as that of staff members and inmates, he says. Health and safety issues, like understaffing, overcrowding - and the associated violence - as well as being equipped with the appropriate, effective safety gear rank at the top of issues employees want addressed during their contract negotiations, Butsch said. Butsch notes that while he has not received confirmation, there is a flurry of rumours circulating around the institution that the ministry also plans to spend more money to build a secondary entrance at the back of the jail to transport in managers and supplies in case of a labour disruption. But, he adds that if it comes to workers either being locked out or walking out, they will be picketing at any entrance used at the institution. Ultimately, Butsch says the ministry is sending the wrong message to staff by essentially indicating they aren’t even interested in taking part in fair negotiations.

“Morale is down because of that,” he says, noting that while the ministry’s move is discouraging for employees, it also serves to help unite them under a common cause. “Generally staff don’t

want to go out on strike, but we will if it’s an important issue to us,” he says. Contract negotiations are set to begin in October, with the contract to expire in December.

thing: the Ministry’s intent is to ‘draw a line in the sand’ and lock out correctional officers before it even knows what issues are on the bargaining table.” Another president from local 369 in Penetanguishene, Chris Jackel adds that when managers were brought in during strike action in 2002, their biggest complaint was poor living conditions, noting, “It seems as though the Government is doing something about it this time.” OPSEU president Warren Thomas agrees, saying that he would like to see the Ministry spending money on increasing the number of inmate beds and improving working conditions at jails across the province instead of wasted on such pre-emptive construction. “The cost of the managers’ strike accommodations is estimated to be over $500,000,” he said. “If they took that money and invested it in their front-line staff and facilities, it would go a long way in ensuring there weren’t any future labour disputes.” As the union representative for employees at CECC, Butsch says there is often misinformation about the main concerns at issue for the workers he represents within the jail, come contract

News – The president for the local union representing employees at the Central East Correctional Centre (CECC) says the corrections ministry is jumping the gun and preparing for a strike – or lock-out – by building on-site accommodations for managers months before contract negotiations are even set to start. Local OPSEU 368 president Chris Butsch says construction for the management accommodations began at the CECC on April 2, adding that he has no doubt whatsoever about what the construction is for. “It was confirmed to me by administration here that that’s what it’s for,” he said in an interview on Monday (April 14). The Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) announced in a press release issued on April 4 that similar construction is also being performed at other institutions in Ontario including Sudbury Jail, Central North Correctional Centre, Niagara Detention Centre, Algoma Treatment and Remand Centre, Monteith Correctional Centre, Thunder Bay Jail, Kenora Jail, HamiltonWentworth Detention Centre, OttawaCarleton Detention Centre, Maplehurst Correctional Centre and Vanier Centre for Women, and is also pending at many other Ontario institutions. “Many correctional facilities are constructing housing accommodations for the sole purpose of providing temporary living quarters for managers who would be required to stay at the facilities in the event of a labour dispute,” the press release states. From the ministry perspective, representative Andrew Morrison notes that while the provincial government values the work of those employed at correctional institutions and is “fully committed to the collective bargaining process” and coming to a fair settlement, there is still a risk of a labour disruption in any contract negotiation. “It would be irresponsible to put public safety at risk by failing to prepare for such an outcome,” he says. “In the event of a labour disruption the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services remains responsible for the health, safety and transportation of more than 8,000 inmates, as well as all of the managers and staff that would run the institutions 24 hours a day. The work being carried out at some of our correctional institutions will help the government ensure public safety.” However, according to Butsch, what really threatens public safety during a labour disruption is managers brought in from other provincial ministries who are not properly trained to run the jails. “They have no idea how to run this building and that to me is a threat to public safety,” he says. Butsch says the threat is even more prominent when the under-trained government managers are responsible for care, control and custody of inmates during their regularly-scheduled escorts into the community, like traveling to the hospital for appointments. He notes he finds it odd that the ministry position is that it would be irresponsible not to take pre-emptive action in case of a labour disruption, when they took no such action before or during previous contract negotiations.

Morrison adds that there are currently several projects ongoing at the local jail, including, “upgrades to the fire safety system/alarm, seasonal maintenance/site servicing/ HVAC upgrades, washroom upgrades and space optimization (e.g., programming or training).” But, he stopped short of including manager accommodations in the list of projects provided, and further requests for clarification and estimated costs and time lines for the construction were not answered. Morrison did say that work being done, “will also provide lasting improvements to institutions that will help us ensure the safety and security of both staff and inmates.” However the union reports the ministry is being “secretive” about the construction, adding the employer is “taking extreme measures to ensure that unionized staff are denied access to these areas.” “The current collective agreement is not due to expire until the end of December 2014,” says Dan Sidsworth, the elected representative for correctional members with the union. “This can only mean one

run, or fight, or both. Mind you the running and fighting is pretty cool. I liked David Bell. This film doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really require any real acting but then Bell isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in it

for his acting skills. The man is truly gifted at what he does, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very impressive on the big screen. The late Paul Walker was an actor who brought a charm and enthusiasm to his roles that will be sorely missed. Walker always looks like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enjoying himself, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly true in Brick Mansions. It may not have been much of a script but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to stop Walker from having some fun. The rest of the cast more or

Gouchy Boy attempts to give the film some comic relief, and Ayisha Issa is disturbing, but I think she is supposed to be. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still not a fan of RZA as an actor, but as a villain he does a fair job. Brick Mansions is a lousy movie. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got mind blowing chase and fight scenes, but it is a lousy movie. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

maine for years, but he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get through the Brick Mansions alone. He needs someone who knows the terrain. Enter Lino (David Bell). Lino is an ex-con and Brick Mansions resident whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been waging his own war against Tremaine. Unfortunately, Linoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement in Tremaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affairs has led Tremaine to kidnap Linoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ex-girlfriend Lola (Catalina Denis). Lino didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need more motivation to go after Tremaine, but the bomb does make him willing to work with a cop. Together Lino and Damien have to save a city no one wants to save. The combination of Paul Walker, and the founder of parkour David Bell creates some of the most spectacular action sequences in film. There is a fluidity and grace to the fight choreography and chase scenes that is spell binding. In terms of plot and story, however, there are holes you can drive a truck through. None of this film makes sense except as an excuse for David Bell and Paul Walker to

MOVIE: Brick Mansions STARRING: Paul Walker, David Bell, RZA, Catalina Denis, Ayisha Issa and Gouchy Boy DIRECTOR: Camille Delamarre RATING: PG Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With the founder of parkour as one of the stars of Brick Mansions it sounded like this could be an interesting action film. It definitely was that. Too bad thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all it was. In the near future the slums of Detroit become so crime infested the powers that be build a wall around it, annex it, and then wash their hands of it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like its own country with heavily guarded border. They call it the Brick Mansions, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a no manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land ruled by a drug dealer and gun runner named Tremaine (RZA). Somehow Tremaine gets his hands on a neutron bomb, and starts threatening the rest of Detroit. To stop him, undercover cop Damien (Paul Walker) is sent in. Damien has wanted to take down Tre-

National Gallery of Canada announces annual art contest for teens News – Recently, the National Gallery of Canada (NGC) launched the fourth edition of its popular contest So You Want to Be an Artist? Youth aged 16 to 19 from across the country are invited to submit their work by May 21. Submitted works will be shown on the site soyouwanttobeanartist.ca so that visitors can vote for their favourite. The 12 entries with the most votes will be shown at the Gallery from July 28 to Sept. 1. From those 12 entries, a jury of visual arts experts will select the three most outstanding works. The grand prize winner will receive an exclusive behind-the-scenes visit of the gallery. So You Want to Be An Artist? is made possible thanks to the generous support of RBC Foundation. New this year: an art expert will choose three additional works that he or she believes deserve to be exhibited and considered by the jury for one of the grand prizes. In 2013, So You Want to Be an Artist? attracted 203 teens from all across Canada, and

more than 25,000 votes were cast on the contest website. A total of 151,412 users visited the site, a 14 per cent increase from the previous year. “Since launching in 2011, So You Want to Be an Artist? has been growing in popularity among youth, and we hope to see more and more of them enter,” said NGC manager of youth and school programs Gary Goodacre. “We are always blown away by the superb quality of the works submitted.” A panel of judges will evaluate the 15 finalists’ artworks on the following criteria: clarity of theme and message; originality and imaginativeness; and thought and feeling provoked in the viewer. How to enter Young artists can base their work on whatever sparks their imagination. They can also draw inspiration from the NGC’s rich collection, either in person or by visiting gallery.ca. Artworks must be original two-dimensional pieces in any medium, and must be accompanied by a

short text explaining the inspiration for their piece. A digital copy of the work must be submitted, which will be shown on the soyouwanttobeanartist. ca website, where visitors will be able to vote for their favourite piece(s) through Facebook (one vote per work per Facebook account). The contestants with the most online votes, as well as the three additional ones whose artworks have been chosen by an expert, will be invited to submit their original artwork for entry into the final phase of the contest. For more information, go to soyouwanttobeanartist.ca. Eligibility The contest is open to residents of Canada who are aged 16 to 19, as of August 11, 2014.

• Online voting phase: The NGC will post all accepted entries online at soyouwanttobeanartist.ca. During the voting phase of the contest, visitors to the contest website will be able to vote once for every artwork that appeals to them. The voting phase takes place from May 26 to June 30. • Public display and jury selection phase: The NGC will invite the top 12 contestants with the most online votes, as well as the creators of the three additional artworks chosen, to submit their original artwork for display on its Artissimo Gallery wall, located in the concourse. The works will be

on view from July 28 to Sept. 1. During the display phase, a jury appointed by the NGC will evaluate the artworks based on: the clarity of the theme and message; originality and imaginativeness; and the thought and feeling provoked in the viewer. Announcement of winners The jurors will choose three finalists who will be awarded prizes as outlined below. The NGC will announce the winners during the week of Aug. 11. First prize includes travel, accommodation and meals for a two-night stay in Ottawa for the winner and one accompanying adult as well as an ex-

clusive behind-the-scenes visit of the NGC that will focus on careers in the visual arts. The winner will also gain expert advice on his or her art portfolio and receive a $500 gift certificate for art supplies. (Note: If the winner lives within a 100 km radius from downtown Ottawa, a $1,000 gift certificate for art supplies will be awarded instead of the travel portion of the prize.) Total maximum value: $3,500. Second prize is a $1,000 gift certificate for art supplies, while third prize is a $500 gift certificate for art supplies. Submitted by the National Gallery of Canada.

One contest, three phases • Online submission phase: The NGC will accept entries submitted before 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 21 via the contest website at soyouwanttobeanartist.ca. No submissions will be accepted afterwards.

1939 Mercury sedan nicknamed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Black Beautyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Here is a 1939 Mercury telling you its â&#x20AC;&#x153;auto-biographyâ&#x20AC;? right from birth, courtesy of Ian Panton in Kingsville, Ontario: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was born in 1939 in the Ford plant in Windsor, Ontario. My VIN is 56,906. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m classified as a Series 99A 4-door Town Sedan with a V8 engine of 239 cubic inches and a curb weight of 3,013 pounds. My first owner paid $957 for me, and I was worth it! â&#x20AC;&#x153;That first owner was a Polish immigrant to Canada who lived in Kitchener, Ontario. I meant a lot to him and he always kept me housed in a garage and never drove me in the winter. Fortunately, he was able to walk to work at the Electrohome plant in Kitchener. He kept me for 34 years and, when he was 59, he found another loving home for me. By that time, my odometer read 18,173 miles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were three other employees at the Electrohome plant who were interested in making me a part of their family. When the day came, my first owner selected a man from Listowel, Ontario, as my new owner because he was paying my full price in cash. The other two had brought cheques and there had been stories of cheques bouncing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My second owner was a real Ford enthusiast who took excellent care of me during the next 15 years. He had my body repainted

duced as a medium-priced car for the 1939 model year to fill the price gap between the Ford Deluxe and the Lincoln Zephyr. It was an instant hit with an estimated 75,000 built in the first y ear. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympa-

and my seats and floor reupholstered. Most of the time he just washed and polished me. He had a very clean building where he kept his other cars and I was always indoors with them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In September 1988, Ian Panton from Oakville fell in love with me on his journeys through Listowel and my owner finally agreed to sell me to Mr. Panton. By that time, my odometer read 22,812 miles. And so I joined the Panton family and the loving care I had been receiving all my life continued. My engine was rebuilt and my transmission was overhauled along with all the usual washing and polishing. Every winter I was lifted up onto my frame to take the weight off my springs. Perhaps the greatest highlights of my nearly ten years with Mr. Panton were being the wedding car for his daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marriage and driving in the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise. In 1998, I went to another good home in Troy, Alabama.â&#x20AC;? The first Mercury was intro- Ian Panton poses with pride alongside â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Beauty,â&#x20AC;? his 1939 Mercury 4-door sedan.
