EVELYN HARFORD ehar ford@metroland.com Before Kristina Crosbie's son got sick last summer and needed a blood transfusion she never fully appreciated how important blood donations were. Crosbie Dragos, now four years old, was diagnosed with Transient Erythroblastopenia of Childhood (TEC), which causes the bone marrow to stop producing red blood cells. This caused Crosbie's red blood cell count to drop to a low level. While Crosbie was still a happy and energetic little boy, he was starting to look pale. At the urging of his grandmother, Kristina took him to get blood work See 'EVERY, page 2

Evelyn Harford/Torstar Shawn Crosbie, Crosbie Dragos' uncle, gave blood for the first time at the blood donor clinic held at the Smiths Falls Civitan Club on Wednesday, May 8, 2019. He was inspired to give blood by his nephew, who needed a blood transfusion after being diagnosed with Transient Erythroblastopenia of Childhood.

‘EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY, SOMEONE NEEDS BLOOD’ Continued from page 1

done. Sure enough, after getting the blood work back and realizing how low his red blood cell count was, they were off to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario where he received one unit of blood. "I was scared," said Kristina. "I don't think I realized how serious it was." Having never gone through something like this before, she had no idea what to expect. "I didn't understand. I had no idea what a transfusion was." Once Crosbie got the blood, he was on the mend, and his bone marrow started producing red blood cells again. It's something Crosbie will only have to go through once since his struggle with TEC was a one-time thing. Today, Crosbie is a healthy young boy who loves to swim, play outside, and ride his bike. After the ordeal with her son, Kristina now knows the value of donating blood. "Before, I just never made the time," she said.

"Unfortunately, it took this for me to realize why I needed to do this or be involved." Kristina and Crosbie were at the blood donor clinic held at the Smiths Falls Civitan Club on Wednesday, May 8, to show donors where their blood products go and to inspire them to keep giving. Crosbie's uncle, Shawn Crosbie, donated for the first time at the clinic because of his nephew. "Because I can't, I'm trying to make everybody do it," said Kristine, who still can't donate blood because she's recently had a baby. Last Christmas Eve, Kristina's husband's family donated blood at a clinic in Paris, Ont. Her message for donors: "I'm just so thankful." Kristina said she'd love to meet the person who donated the blood that was used to help her son. "We can say thanks to everybody here today; who knows, it could have been someone here," she said. Mary Ann St. Michael, territory manager with the Canadian Blood Services, said the need for blood is

ongoing. "Every minute of every day someone needs blood," she said. Canadian Blood Services needs 100,000 new blood donors each year to keep up the blood supply. St. Michael said, ideally, the Canadian Blood Services likes to have a five-day supply of each blood type, meaning that if they stopped collecting today they could supply the whole country with its blood product needs for five days. She said, right now, there is only a threeday supply of O-negative blood. St. Michael said that having families that have received blood come to the clinics are important. "I think it's really special for the blood donors to see their blood donations impacting someone, especially in their own community," she said.

The Old Post Office is getting some love from a familiar character. Bruce Linton, founder, chairman and coCEO of Canopy Growth Corporation, has purchased the heritage building at the corner of Russell Street East and Market Street North with plans to renovate and restore it. The redesign is going to include renovations to the commercial and residential units - which will result in the elimination of one apartment - and significant restoration of the exterior and façade. The building, considered one of the most distinctive and historically significant in town, was originally constructed in 1893. It was designed by Dominion Architect Thomas Fuller who's best known for his design of the original Parliament Buildings. He was also responsible for the design and construction of many public buildings across the country, including some 80 post office buildings - just like the one in Smiths Falls. The distinctive clock tower, added in 1915, now pays homage to its new owner. The clock hands have been moved to read 4:20. Around 1964, the post office was closed the building was sold into private hands. As of 2018, the building was home to two law offices on the first floor and five apartment units on the two upper levels. In 1978, the council at the time designated the building as a heritage structure under the Ontario Heritage Act. Consultation with the town's municipal heritage committee was done prior to the plans for the Old Post Office being brought before council for approval on Monday, May 6, where council passed a resolution permitting the renovations.

Council was happy to see someone take on such a project that will help restore one of Smiths Falls' heritage gems back to its former glory. "It's a very exciting development," said Mayor Shawn Pankow. "It's a building that everybody in our community has great affection for and to see it be not just restored to its former glory but enhanced in many ways is something I have no hesitation to support." Coun. Lorraine Allen, who sits on the municipal heritage committee, said they were very proud the developer had come to them because they want to do the restoration properly. "Hopefully with this restoration complete, this lovely old building will sit for another maybe 100 years," she said. Linton has retained the services of AFM Construction and B.J. Edmundson Architect to lead the design of the renovations. The building, while is structurally solid, shows obvious signs of neglect over the years. Substantial work will be needed in the interior. As part of the renovations, the existing chimney will be removed. A new atrium skylight will be added. Two dormers on the third floor of the north side will be removed and replaced with a single larger dormer that will include a French balcony and hipped roof. The roofline facing Market Street will be altered to incorporate two new dormer windows that will be installed, mimicking the existing dormer. The existing windows and frames will be replaced with red grandis framed windows and the ribbed metal roof will be replaced with new steel roofing with a higher rib. The façade will be restored with like-for-like replacements of corbels sandstones, clock hardware and other elements that might be necessary.

POTENTIAL RECYCLING CHANGES CONCERN RIDEAU LAKES RESIDENTS ULTIMATELY, THE TOWNSHIP'S COUNCIL DECIDED TO NOT GO AHEAD WITH THE CONTEMPLATED CHANGES - AT LEAST FOR NOW EVELYN HARFORD ehar ford@metroland.com Contemplated changes to Rideau Lakes' recycling program got a trashy reception. The township mistakenly announced that there would be changes to the program, which would mean black plastics, clam shells, milk and juice cartons, Tetra Paks, all plastic bags and glass bottles and jars would no longer be accepted as recycling. "I was really disheartened," said Rideau Lakes

resident Heidi McNeely, when she originally read about changes. McNeely said the change that had been presented would double her curbside garbage load - costing her more for garbage pickup and creating upset that she was putting more of a strain on the environment. "It bothers me to put those things in the garbage," she said. McNeely said she considers herself to be environmentally friendly and has concerns about more plastics making its way in-

We were humbled by the outpouring of generous support from the community. A special thank you goes out to members of the Drummond/North Elmsley Tay Valley Fire Rescue Service (BBD&E Station), 1st Drummond Scouts, residents, and businesses in assisting with filling sandbags and providing donations. All volunteers played a significant role by donating their valuable time, effort and energy in assisting residents in need.

Thank you for caring!

past couple of years, we've acknowledged the plastic problems in the environment. People nowadays are far more concerned about the environment. It's nice to see." Though, McNeely said she wasn't happy to learn about the reduction in recycling when it was mistakenly announced, she understands the municipality, in some capacity, has its hands tied and is simply reacting to a larger global problem. "I understand it's a bigger problem," she said. "It's a national problem." McNeely said consumers are forced to purchase products packaged in plastics at the grocery stores especially when purchasing things like mixed salads and spinach. "That's not my choice," she said. NcNeely said companies have to bear some responsibility for the packaging they produce, instead of passing the problem down the line. However, the changes that were mistakenly sent out to residents won't be happening - at least for right now. Ultimately, on Monday, May 6, council decided to not go ahead with the con-

THE ISSUE: REDUCED MARKET FOR RECYCLING AND INCREASING COSTS LED THE TOWNSHIP TO CONSIDER CHANGES TO RECYCLING PROGRAM LOCAL IMPACT: IN THE FUTURE, IT MAY MEAN THAT RESIDENTS WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO RECYCLE ITEMS SUCH AS BLACK PLASTICS, CLAM SHELLS, MILK AND JUICE CARTONS, TETRA PAKS, ALL PLASTIC BAGS, GLASS BOTTLES AND JARS templated changes recently published in the township's spring and summer brochure, which went to press in error before a final decision had been made by council. For now, the status quo will be maintained. Rideau Lakes' Chief Administrative Officer Mike

Dwyer said the impetus for the township to consider changes to the recycling program in the first place came from issues raised by the municipality's recycling hauler, who is concerned about the recycling market that's tightening up. Since January 2018, when China closed the door to foreign recycling, municipalities across the country, and around the world, have been struggling to find alternate markets. Prior to China's decision about half of the world's recyclables were sent there. Dwyer said Rideau Lakes is halfway through their 10-year contract with their hauler and wonder if the current recycling program can be maintained at this time. He said when entering into their current contract the township was able to expand the types of recyclables collected. However, Dwyer said the hauler has signalled that there may be difficulties on the horizon to find a market for the recycling the township currently collects. "They're trying to give us a heads up that there could be issues in future," he said. This issue isn't something not unique to Rideau Lakes - municipalities all over are struggling to figure out what to do with their recycling as the market dries up. "We're all struggling with the same thing," said Rideau Lakes Mayor Arie Hoogenboom, who also emphasized that dealing with waste is a shared responsibility. He said the township is disappointed that the province isn't moving as fast to implement legislation to put pressure on industry to reduce the amount of plastic packaging they produce, which would lessen the burden on consumers and municipalities that ultimately have to deal with See RECYCLING, page 11

BIG SKY RANCH TO BENEFIT FROM SMITHS FALLS FUNDRAISER ON JUNE 2 LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com Sanctuary animals will benefit from an inaugural fundraising event in Smiths Falls on June 2 Jacqui Bowick-Sandor and Kathy Botham are cochairing a walk for Big Sky Ranch (BSR) in Kemptville,

a shelter that rescues animals of all kinds. It's a place that is special to Bowick-Sandor, who said "they really touched my heart" when she re-homed a dog due to separation anxiety. "We had to give her up," she said of a mastiff mix, Isabelle, who has found her

forever home thanks to BSR. She said it wasn't fair to the dog, when she and her husband Bruce Sandor, were away. The dog suffered from terrible separation anxiety. Through no fault of the dog's, when a door opened one day, Isabelle bolted to greet the person on the other side of it, sending Bowick-Sandor to the floor, breaking her knee. "I don't know what was worse - the pain from a broken knee or having to give the dog to Big Sky Ranch," she said. But she knew Isabelle was in good hands, and it wasn't long before the dog found a new home where she is thriving, according to a success story posted on BSR's website, that reads in part: "We have had her for a year now ... she has filled our hearts with love. She is perfect. She comes with us everywhere she sleeps with us and the cats ... Thank you to the people who sur-

You must have loved her very much." It was because of this situation, that the Smiths Falls women, longtime friends and advocates, wanted to do something for the sanctuary. After learning about the sanctuary's financial difficulties recently to heat the animal barns, the women decided to help. Pauline Lafleur, office manager at BSR, said in an email to the Record News that the money raised from the walk will go directly to retrofitting an existing structure, so they can shelter more animals during the winter months. It will have four large stalls centrally located and will be perfect for the smaller animals such as goats, sheep, llamas, and miniature horses. "We are touched and humbled by people like Jacqui Sandor and Kathy Botham who put in the time, effort and commitment to help the animals on a scale like this," Lafleur wrote. "We have organized events ourselves and recognize all the background work that has to be done - we are very grateful." The sanctuary current-

ly has about 115 domestic animals, including horses, llamas, donkeys, cats, dogs, rabbits, sheep, goats, birds, emu, miniature horses, pot-bellied pigs and more. The process to adopt is simple, Lafleur noted. "We want to meet you. If it is the right fit for both home and animal, there is an adoption process and an adoption fee which goes to support the other animals at the sanctuary." Over the past 15 years, BSR has found homes for 3,000 animals, and has offered shelter to others that can't be re-homed, "but can exist only because there are so many people with good hearts that not only love animals, but who also are part of the solution." Everyone who donates time, money or skills to the shelter, is part of the sanctuary, Lafleur wrote. Most of the animals at BSR are there due to difficult situations in people's lives, and sometimes, despite all efforts, the animal can't stay with the owner. "Once the animal comes to Big Sky there is no time limit," Lafleur wrote. "They are welcome to stay as long as it takes to find the right fit. If that time does

not come they simply become longer-term residents of the sanctuary." The fundraising walk will take place at Lower Reach Park in Smiths Falls, on Saturday, June 2, with 8 a.m. registration, and a 9 a.m. start. It's over at noon. There are distances of one, two and three kilometres around the walking track. The Kinsmen Pavilion will be open with refreshments, and a DJ. Pledges are required, but there is no minimum. Pledge sheets can be picked up from either women, or in Smiths Falls at Ilan Treasurers, A Buck or Two Plus, or Royal Lepage. A recent online auction hosted by the women raised over $1,000 to help with incidentals like insurance. "Our goal was to keep it simple," Bowick-Sandor said. "It's about the animals, and the community getting together for a fun time." Big Sky Ranch is located at 810 Pelton Rd. in Kemptville. Visit www.bigskyranch.ca to find out more about their current animals up for adoption, or to make a donation. Call 613-258-7118 for more details.

MCWONDERFUL TOTALS FROM MCHAPPY DAY LAURIE WEIR WRITES ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE AT CHEO

insideottawavalley.com

LAURIE WEIR Column

As local personalities served coffee, burgers and treats at McDonald's restaurants on May 8, children's families were checking into the Ronald McDonald House in Ottawa or using the two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at CHEO. Money raised during the May 8 McHappy Day campaign totalled $44,440 from the restaurants in Smiths Falls, Perth, Carleton Place and Kemptville. Kudos to franchise owners Tim and Lorraine Carter and staff for such a valiant effort at fundraising for this worthwhile cause. More than 1,400 McDonald's restaurants participated in the national fundraising initiative by donating $1 for every Big Mac, Happy Meal and hot McCafe beverage sold. This, along with each community's generous support, will in turn will help more than 26,000 Canadian families every year stay at Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada while their children are being treated at nearby hospitals. Celebrity servers in the various restaurants included politicians, doctors,

lawyers, and firefighters. Since it opened its doors in June of 1984, Ronald McDonald House has provided a warm, safe, affordable, and compassionate environment for families with seriously ill children receiving medical services at CHEO. My family has been blessed and cursed at the same time. A young person in my life has been struggling with an illness and has been at CHEO several months. He's on the mend though - albeit a long and arduous task is in front of him. His parents have stayed at the Ronald McDonald House a few times, allowing the family an opportunity to all be at one place at the same time while visiting with the ill child. It's been a godsend for them to not have to worry about the two-hour commute to the hospital and back. The two family rooms offer a place of respite, relaxation and privacy within the wall of the hospital for family members of patients. I've not only been able to offer extended support to the family, but my husband and I have been able to stay with them longer due to these facilities on site. On behalf of those who have used these facilities, we say thanks to McDonald's restaurants and to their clients on another great fundraising effort.

WHO WE ARE LETTERS & COMMENTARY HELP OUR COMMUNITY BY HELPING JUSTICE PROGRAM Dear editor, It is very sad and quite shocking to me that, as reported in the Perth Courier, April 18 (LCCJP Needs $30,000 by April 30 or Foresees Shutdown) that the Lanark County Community Justice Program could well be eliminated due to insufficient financial support from the provincial Ministry of the Attorney General and from local funding organizations. This program is not only effective in terms of money saved by the police and the courts, it also works extremely well. How? As a longtime volunteer facilitator with both the court diversion program and the Be Strong program in local schools, I have witnessed healing of relationships and real justice so effective that re-offence rarely if ever happens. Note that this process however, is no walk in the park for the accused, far from it! Offenders who have accepted responsibility for what they have done

must then face those they have harmed, all seated in a circle, learn first-hand about the real consequences of what they have done and explain what they were thinking (or not) at the time. They can offer apologies directly to those they have harmed, and must be willing to explore appropriate consequences geared to healing the harm done and thereby ensuring that there are no repeat offences. The process is structured so that everyone affected, including the accused, the police, business owners, family members and friends, all have a say in what they think would be appropriate actions for the accused to undertake, and they must all be in agreement. Once signed, this agreement becomes a legal document, and if the accused lives up to the agreed-upon actions, the

charges are not pursued by the courts. This would all make for very compelling drama if it were televised live; however, the details must be kept confidential. So possibly your neighbour may have been involved in a community justice forum and this opportunity may well have provided a pivotal turn in his or her life in which trust and respect were restored, and/or the stigma of a criminal record prevented, but you will probably never hear about it. This program saves taxpayers money, it's amazingly effective at rebuilding functional community, and it deserves all the support it can get right now to continue. So please check it out at www.commjustice.org and help our community to help itself.

LE BOAT RIDES WAVE OF SUCCESS INTO YEAR 2 ON THE RIDEAU EVELYN HARFORD ehar ford@metroland.com With the Rideau Canal navigation season set to start, Le Boat is heading into their second year poised for growth. Le Boat, celebrating its 50th year in business, is opening up their new satellite base in Seeley's Bay this season. The opening of that base allows Le Boat travellers to cruise one-way on the canal for the first time. "It means they don't have to return the boat, which is a big development," said Andrew LeDuc, Le Boat's managing director. Le Boat is also introducing four of their Horizon 5 vessels - the newest and most premium in the fleet will join the boats already in Victoria Basin. The Horizon 5 has five cabins, five bathrooms and sleeps 12. "It's going to be perfect for groups of friends, potentially bigger families," said

LeDuc. Lisa McLean, Le Boat's marketing manager for Canada, U.S. and Latin America, added that the Horizon 5s are a great alternative to cottage rentals. With more vessels and cruising options, the company is ready for more growth, and is already at 29 per cent for 2019 bookings. That's riding off the high of last year's success. In 2018, Le Boat welcomed about 1,350 visitors to the Rideau Canal through 225 bookings, which brought about $1.1 million into the local economy. Many travellers are adding Le Boat onto a larger trip, meaning they're staying in the region longer. "It was more successful in many (more) ways than we could have hoped for," said LeDuc. The company plans to bring in four new boats each year for five years until they reach 32 boats as part of their expansion

Le Boat/Facebook A Le Boat cruising through Victoria Basin in Smiths Falls. plan. And, so far, everything seems on track. "We wouldn't have come to Canada, if we weren't confident - based on all of the information that we had at hand - that this was going to be a successful venture," said LeDuc. "The numbers have absolutely backed that up." The vacations offered by Le Boat aren't just for those

from away. They're for the staycationer, too. McLean said the company is bringing awareness to people that have lived in the region their entire life but haven't seen what it's like to be on Big Rideau Lake, or what it's like to cruise the canal. She said they're seeing a lot of cottage owners who are looking to rent Le Boats for their out-of-town

guests. Any Le Boat vessel can be moored at a private cottage provided the water is deep enough at the dock. Le Boat's presence is being felt all along the Rideau Canal. McLean said they've received positive feedback from businesses in Smiths Falls, Perth and into Westport.

"They're all saying they've seen an uptick in their business," she said. "They're seeing a lot more international visitors than they ever had before." Cannabis tourism is also a point of intrigue for travellers. McLean said they aren't getting a ton of questions about it right now because it's such a new development, but anticipates that will change. "We'll definitely be telling people about the Tweed Visitor's Centre," she said. "We do think it'll be a popular spot when people are in town for the night. There'll be a lot of curiosity." Le Boat also encouraged everyone to visit the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario (RMEO), to go shopping downtown and to visit the Heritage House, among other attractions. McLean said the RMEO was a hit with tourists. The navigation season opens on May 17 and ends on Oct. 14 - longer than previous years - giving Le Boat an extra two weeks of bookings.

CHOCOLATE COMES BACK TO FORMER HERSHEY PLANT ALMONTE'S HUMMINGBIRD CHOCOLATE HAS PARTNERED WITH TWEED EVELYN HARFORD ehar ford@metroland.com Chocolate is once again flowing at the former Hershey factory. But this time, there's an extra ingredient

CANNABIS AND YOU

that's expected to be added: cannabis. Almonte chocolate makers, Erica and Drew Gilmour, owners of Hummingbird Chocolate, are in the factory bringing their highquality confections into the world of cannabis in a partnership with Tweed - something first announced last summer. It's a match that's brining the nostalgia and heritage of chocolate back to Smiths Falls. "We'll be making Hummingbird quality chocolate here," said Erica, in a presentation at the Lanark County Tourism Association's annual general meeting. "It's been really exciting times. It's a whole new world." Erica said Hummingbird enthusiastically jumped on board when approached by Tweed. "We said, '1000 times yes,'" she said. Erica said the equipment used by Hershey is still there. "You can still look down and see all of the chocolate

equipment when you walk along the high line," she said. "You can see it through the window there." Erica said that if people come back in another few months there'll be chocolate being made in the factory ahead of the legalization of cannabis edibles expected this October. Erica and Drew set the record straight: they haven't been bought out by Tweed and they're still producing chocolate in Almonte, just as they always have. Tweed is planning a soft launch when the chocolate is flowing. Former Hershey employees are expected to be involved. "Having chocolate come back to this factory is unbelievable," said Jennifer White, senior communications advisor with Canopy Growth Corporation. "It's going to be a really nice moment." Until legislation on cannabis edibles is passed by the Canadian government, the chocolate won't include cannabis.

TOWN WANTS PUBLIC FEEDBACK ON CANNABIS RETAIL EVELYN HARFORD ehar ford@metroland.com The Town of Smiths Falls wants feedback from both residents and businesses in town on the proposed designated "sensitive use" areas where cannabis retail would not be allowed. The town has undergone the process of reviewing and designating its own sensitive use zones in addition to the provincially required set back of cannabis retail outlets from schools. The province has already excluded areas within 150 metres of schools to keep cannabis retail a reasonable distance from people under the age of 19. In an effort to further discourage underage con-

sumption, town council has expressed that they believe a similar separation distance should apply to other land uses where youth and vulnerable members of our community may be present. As such, they've proposed libraries, recreation facilities and municipal playgrounds as additional sensitive use areas. After cannabis became legal for recreational use last fall, the province established the Ontario Cannabis Store. This April, 25 retail storefronts were licensed across the province. However, retail licenses were only granted to store operators in cities with a population exceeding 50,000. This meant that Smiths Falls was left out of the first wave. Despite

this, the town is taking a proactive approach to outline the municipality's rules around cannabis retail in anticipation of retail licenses being extended to smaller communities like Smiths Falls in the future. The town said public feedback is important for council to consider before they finalize the sensitive use zones for cannabis retail in Smiths Falls. The town asks that you submit your thoughts before Monday, May 20, at 5 p.m. To submit your feedback visit: https://speakupsmiths falls.com/smiths-fallsand-cannabisretail?fbclid=IwAR0hbuic_5OjPvk78MVE8aJR5 Pdgan0prruMQhO07nEi1n0y08CP6pH5Jo.

the waste. "Environmentally, I want to do the right thing," he said. "It's a convoluted system. We're doing the best we can." Hoogenboom said the municipality is often seen as the leader when it comes to waste management - but, on the contrary, they are the level of government that ends up having to react to policy changes and market forces out of their control. "It's both provincial and international in scope," said Hoogenboom. Hoogenboom said resi-

Local journalism makes a difference. Support us by registering at insideottawavalley.com dents can still work toward reducing the amount of garbage sent to landfill by composting and recycling as much as possible. He said one way or another, the municipality, and ultimately the taxpayer, ends up paying to deal with waste - both garbage and recycling. The municipality already has to deal with contaminated recycling loads caused by people dumping

recycling that either doesn't have a market or items that aren't actually recyclable - including items that are not cleaned. This becomes an even bigger problem as the market gets more picky. Contaminated loads can cost the municipality more money to dispose. If a product is not recyclable, people may think they're recycling when in fact some of the products they put in

their blue box ends up in landfill. Hoogenboom admits that the township dropped the ball on the communication strategy regarding the proposed changes to the recycling program. Dwyer also acknowledged the confusion the initial posting by the township caused. He said if any changes were going to be make to the recycling program in the near future, discussions would be happening this summer and fall, and would - if could decided to go ahead with changes would only be implemented in the new year.

Dwyer sees the passion expressed by residents about the recycling program as good thing and a sign of engaged citizens. 'If people care, that's great," he said. The township reports that any changes to the recycling program will be

widely communicated to residents in a clear and consistent manner, with ample notice for residents to adjust. Until such time, the township said residents should continue to sort their recycling as they have for the past few years.

STORY BEHIND THE STORY

China's decision to put a ban on imports of foreign recycling - like plastics - has meant the recycling market around the globe has felt the squeeze. It's impacting small municipalities like Rideau Lakes, whose hauler is finding it more difficult to bring the township's recyclables to market. This could change what the township accepts in their blue bins, so reporter Evelyn Harford delved into the issue wanting to discover what the impact is for residents and how and when they may need to change the way they recycle.

Smiths Falls resident Peter Larmand had seen a news broadcast on childhood obesity when he came up with the idea of hosting an outdoor fishing tournament for kids. As a lifelong angler himself, Larmand said the sport has been good to him through the years. On May 11, the 13th annual Peter Larmand Outdoors Kids' Fishing Tournament was held in Lower Reach Park, drawing 75 participants to the docks. The event marked the first day of the pike and walleye fishing season. Larmand has been fishing since he was a kid and has participated professionally in fishing tournaments up and down the eastern seaboard, in Ontario and Quebec. "I have a passion for the sport," he said. "Our catch line is, 'More tackle boxes, less Xboxes.'" The purpose of the event is to get kids outside and

teach them catch and release. "We teach them that fish are a resource they can harvest, but that they should let it back into the water, so they can come back next year, next week, or tomorrow, to try and catch it again," Larmand explained. When the tournament first started, an average of 70 kids would come out, and the most the event has seen to date is 91. The tournament was previously held in Rideau Ferry. Peter's wife, Robin Coyle, says the event is more visible and accessible now that it is held in Lower Reach Park. "I've noticed that each year, we see a lot of the same faces," she said, "so that's really nice." Coyle said the event is Peter's 'baby.' "Fishing is his passion, and he remembers going fishing with his father and the connection that they had when they went out together - he really wanted to share that with everyone," she said. "It's all about get-

ting outside and having a good time." Coyle added that Smiths Falls is rich with many natural resources, and since fishing is an inexpensive sport, parents love to take their kids out during the season. Through the admission fees and raffle ticket sales, the event raised $800 for Jumpstart, the Canadian Tire charity helping to make sports accessible to all children. At the end of the tournament, the top three kids in each age group were awarded with a medal, and the participant who caught the most fish received a trophy. No matter how many fish they caught, every child picked a prize from the many donated items from local businesses, and games and toys that Larmand and Coyle purchased themselves. Smiths Falls resident Nicola Thomson provided face painting for the kids, BK Waffles was on-site offering popular waffle cones, and everyone was treated to a barbecue. "The town really stepped up," said Larmand. "We've had great support from the community. I think they really see the value in getting the kids outside; it keeps them out of trouble, it's probably the cheapest sport, and you can do it all year long."

MAGICAL ‘PARTNERS IN ILLUSION’ EXCITED BY MOVE TO SMITHS FALLS, SUMMER RESIDENCY AT STATION THEATRE DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@ metroland.com When “Magic Tom” Auburn pulled an egg from behind Ted Outerbridge’s ear at a pasta restaurant in Montreal when he was only seven years old, he knew right there and then that he wanted to be a magician too. “This guy pulled an egg out of my ear!” Outerbridge remembered thinking as a child. “That started it. I was blown away.” Who better than Canada’s “Master of Mystery,” who was a regular feature on Montreal television screens, to light the flame? Outerbridge later worked in a magic store, and hung out with other Montreal-based magicians. Early in his career, he was working alongside two dancers. “I had to replace one of the dancers,” he recalled. “I was told Marion was awesome.” She was working on a dance show in Europe, but upon her return to North America, he saw her in action and “she was great.” She was hired and “I fell madly in love with her.” Two weeks later, he asked her out. “Ordinarily, I try to be professional.” Their personal and professional relationship has evolved since then. “She was my assistant,” at first, he said. “She very quickly became my partner,” in both senses of the word.

Evelyn Harford/Torstar Ted Outerbridge levitates his wife Marion Outerbridge in front of Station Theatre in Smiths Falls where they'll be having shows all summer long. said, as he stood at his booth at the Smiths Falls Home and Living Show, on Saturday, May 4, as he performed card tricks, and was promoting his upcoming “Grand Masters of Illusion,” show, playing this summer at the Station Theatre. “Life is good.” The couple bought the home of golfing great Brooke Henderson’s grandparents, Clem and Beverley Henderson, on Brockville Street, which has a very distinctive front entrance, like walking “through the keyhole. It’s a magic house.” Ted and Marion had been looking to move from Montreal, and once he set foot in the house, “it was over. OK, we are moving ... I’m so happy.” He added that “we’ve always dreamed of living in a Victorian house.” He is impressed with the town’s culinary scene — quite the compliment for someone born and bred in Montreal. On a visit to Chuckles Jack, he noted that “this is like world-class food you would find in Montreal,” and he called the rib-eye steak he bought at Valley Custom Cutting the best he has had “in my life.” And the Heritage House Museum is cultural highlight for him too. Even human interactions are more, well, humane here. During their

first visit to one of Smiths Falls’ Tim Hortons restaurants, “a teenage boy held the door open for us. We were quite impressed with that.” The couple’s “Grand Masters of Illusion” show will be held at the Smiths Falls Station Theatre on Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. (June 29, July 6, 13, 20, 27, and Aug. 3, 24, and 31.) Tickets are $15 and $30. For details, call 613283-0300, or online at smithsfallstheatre.com. They are delighted that they can drive to the theatre in about five minutes. “That’s the ultimate luxury,” he said, a far cry from their previous performances which usually involved at least a day’s worth of travel, or more, having to ship the contents of their act via 20 foot long shipping containers. A career highlight for the duo was performing at The Magic Castle in Los Angeles, described online as a “nightclub for magicians and magic enthusiasts, as well as the clubhouse for the Academy of Magical Arts.” Another top venue was playing at Germany’s oldest variety theatre, a place where Harry Houdini had stood on the very same stage more than 100 years previous. They have also played tours of China, and he is hopeful of one day returning to the Far East.

A new running club in Smiths Falls is anything but wack. WAK (We are Kids), a youth program in Smiths Falls run by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County, is getting kids moving. Making sure youth are active is a big part of the program, said Bridget Manahan, manager of youth services for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County. Manahan said the group of youth that they started with really liked to get out there and do things that were physical. The program took its lead from them in continuing to offer opportunities for them to be active. WAK's new running program, open to youth from grades 6 to 12, takes place each Monday from 4 to 5 p.m. Youth who want to participate are asked to meet above the Youth Arena at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre, bring

All abilities are welcome. When the weather is nice, the group will take their running to the streets. WAK formed after the youth centre in town shut its doors in the summer of 2017. Since then, Big Brothers Big Sisters in partnership with the Town of Smiths Falls has filled the void. The program has even secured funding for the next four years. Youth who attend the WAK program are also invited to enter a giveaway for two grand prizes - $50 gift cards of the winners' choosing. Any new youth will get a ballot for the draw each week they attend the program at least once a week until June 14. "We're trying to give them incentive to come for the first time," said Mana-

What’s happening this week at:

Each youth who started attending before February of this year will get a ballot each week they attend three times per week during the time of the contest. As a special bonus, any new youth attending the program during the time of the contest gets a chocolate bar. Any youth between ages between 11 - 18 who attends WAK Youth Program is eligible to participate. The contest closes on June 14. For more information on the running program email heidi.mcneely@bigbrothersbigsisters.ca or call 613-284-2490.

ST. LUKE STUDENTS HOMELESS FOR A NIGHT St. Luke Catholic High School students gave up their beds for one night to sleep on the streets of Smiths Falls to raise money for organizations that help people who are experiencing homelessness, or are at risk of becoming homeless. A small group of students set up camp on the lawn of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church on Thursday, May 9, for a night of experiential reflection. Former St. Luke teacher, Bob Warren — himself a street kid in Montreal in the late ’60s and early ’70s — originally started the Night on the Street initiative back in 2008 because he wanted the students to understand that they could get lower if they didn’t focus.

“They had to see what it was like out there,” he said. Night on the Street stopped in 2011 but was brought back to life this year after former St. Luke student James Des Rosiers, who’d previously participated in the Night on the Street, and James Drapeau, a current Grade 10 student at St. Luke, connected over a memory Des Rosiers had shared on social media. When Warren learned that students would be once again heading out for a night on the street, he was dumbfounded. Warren stayed on the street from 1967 and 1972, starting when he graduated high school until he left university. He slept where he could: in cars, hotel lobbies and doorways. “It’s not that I didn’t have a good home. I just

Luke students also got that chance this year. “It was a good experience to understand why we’re doing this,” said Drapeau, of their visit to the Ottawa-based organization. This wasn’t their only chance to speak with those who’ve had experience living on the streets. Longtime Smiths Falls resident Christina shared her experience being homeless with the students during their night on the street. She did not want her last name to be used out of respect for her family. Christina, now 46 years old, spent just over a year on the streets in Carleton Place and Ottawa after leaving home at age 15. Before that, she’d bounced around 11 foster homes when not in the care of her mother. “Days like tonight sucked, you’re outside and you’re wet,” Christina told

Christina did and was able to get off the streets. Now she wants people —

including St. Luke students — to understand what those who have become homeless have gone through and what might be behind the faces sitting on the streets. “Every one of them have a story,” Christina said. On the streets, Christina tried to keep up her appearance by saving money when she could to wash her clothes. “If you would have seen me, you never would have known I was homeless,” she said. Each person has their own reasons for being on the streets, and, often, it’s not their fault. By sharing her story, Christina is breaking down the assumptions people have about those who are homeless. “There’s such a stigma,” she said. Christina said that

SMITH, Jeffrey M June 13, 1976 – May 18, 2008 The Day God Took You Home A million times We’ve needed you A million times we’ve cried, If love alone Could have saved you You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place No one else can ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn’t go alone Part of us went with you, The day God took you home.

EVERY SPRING WOULD BRING NEW LIFE TO MOTHER LONG, DREARY WINTERS WERE ALWAYS DIFFICULT DURING 1930S, MARY COOK RECALLS MARY COOK Column

ment knowing that winter was behind us, and that Mother would once again be her happy and contented self. Her seeds had come from her order to the Steele-Briggs catalogue, and were starting to sprout in the little square boxes on a table beside the back door. The rolled-up braided rug had been removed from the parlour door where it had been since the first blasts of winter, and we could now sit on the horsehair settee and look at picture albums or read. Soon the spring housecleaning would begin ... the kitchen curtains washed and starched, and the braided rugs hung on the fence outside and beaten with the broom and rolled up for the summer. The sun had risen overhead and was beating down through the vines of the grape arbour, and I could feel myself dozing off, leaning against my sister. And I was overcome with a feeling of joy and contentment. Mother was back ... everything was right in my world. Interested in an electronic version of Mary's books?

The ditches had dried up. The fields were ready to plant. Each day I could feel the warmth of spring all around us. With the coming of the longer, sunny days, Mother became a different person. All winter, it was like someone had pulled a windowblind over her face, only occasionally letting in a bit of light. For the most part when the days and nights were dark and dreary, it was like Mother was waiting for something good to happen. And then the winter was over, and spring was here at last. Audrey and I were sitting alone on the swing in the grape arbour. Buds were just starting to come out, and soon there would be enough leaf-cover to make a haven for us outside where we could eat a meal and get away from the hot sun, or the steaming kitchen. I could hear Mother, through the opened window, singing a wordless tune, and the sounds of pots scraping on the Findlay Oval, and dishes against dishes. A feeling of

complete contentment settled over me, but I wondered about Mother's change at the end of winter and the coming of spring. I asked Audrey if she, so much older and so much wiser than I, noticed it too, or was it just my imagination. My sister paused for a few minutes, as she gathered her thoughts. "It's in the wintertime she misses New York the most," she said. Much of her answer escaped me ... much beyond the reasoning of a five or six-year-old. But I listened anyway. "She feels shut out from the rest of the world out here in Northcote, because the car is in the drive shed up on blocks, it's a long, cold trip into Renfrew in the cutter, so she only goes in on Saturdays to deliver her eggs." She paused again, and I thought that was the end of it. But she went on. "Did you ever notice how she reads and rereads that Philadelphia Inquirer paper that comes in the mail? Well, that connects her with everything going on in the place she left to come to live here in Northcote. She gets lonesome for her friend Rosie, and I think she feels trapped in the winter ... looking out at so much snow, and she worries about fire burning the house down, and her relatives in Ottawa who can't come out to visit. So, you see, Mary, winter isn't the best time for our Mother." I felt the utmost content-

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 You must be very honest in your relationships this week, Cancer. Don’t confuse opinions with the truth. Maintain an open dialogue with others around you.

LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 It’s alright to cede a little control this week, Libra. Delegating and sharing responsibilities can open your eyes to the talented people around you. Don’t feel guilty about taking on less work.

TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Others understand that you’re the go-to when things need fixing, Taurus. You have the ability to help in any situation. Embrace this talent and help others as much as you can.

LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Guessing will only get you so far, Leo. Instead, you must base decisions off fact and forethought; otherwise, you may end up having to do everything all over.

GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Listen to your gut, Gemini. If you do so, others will follow your lead. It is time to step up and take charge. Don’t worry, you will not need to justify all the decisions you make.

LAWS SHOWCASES 2 MALE FELINES AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION The Lanark Animal Welfare Society has two male cats to showcase this week. Meet Fredson, whose looks are as unique as his name! This adorable sixmonth-old, neutered male loves getting attention from anyone he can and he rewards them with non-stop purring! You will fall in love with his cream and buff coat and his aqua eyes and want to give him a forever home. Come and meet Fredson at the shelter. Meet Sam, a grey and white, two-yearold, neutered male. Don't let his rough tough exterior fool you, he'll greet you with a little raspy, growly purr at first, but we've since figured out that's how he says "hello." Once he gets to know you and is comfortable, he is a big purring marshmallow who loves to be petted. Come and meet Sam at the shelter. If anyone has any spare time and knows one end of a hammer from the other, LAWS is looking for some volunteer help with the finishing aspects of the new addition. Please give the shelter a call at 613-283-9308 for more information. LAWS would like to thank all the generous people who have dropped off items and/ or donated money to help out our fur babies. We also had a great turnout at Festival of the Maples in Perth so thank you very much to everyone who stopped by to say hi or buy a LAWS hat. Follow us at www.facebook.com/lanarkanimals and/or lanarkanimals.ca. LAWS is located at 253 Glenview Rd., Smiths Falls. Submitted by LAWS
