A number of people enjoyed Father’s Day at Rideau Paddlefest in Smiths Falls June 18 at Lower Reach Park. Now in its fourth year, the event offered fun for all ages: entertainment, paddling demonstrations, Voyageur canoe races and more. Above, practice makes perfect for Natalia’s One-On-One team, as they turned out to be the winners of the 200m event before a tornado watch closed the event early.

Brigade of voyageur canoes sets off on adventure from Kingston June 24 Each of the brigades will bring a bottle of water “from what you consider the start of your journey,” he explained. Here, in the shadow of Parliament Hill, all participants will join in a special water ceremony, “a mixing of the waters to represent we’re all one

STAFF

Canadians from coast to coast will gather in Kingston later this month, set to embark on a week-long trek to the nation’s capital via the historic Rideau Canal. Officially setting off from Rideau Acres campsite just north of the city on June 24, the ‘Canada 150 South Wind Voyageur Canoe Brigade’ will feature close to 140 paddlers in more than a dozen 26-foot voyageur canoes. Over the next seven days, they will make their way to Ottawa with overnight stops in small communities all along the waterway, eventually meeting up with participants from three other ‘brigades’ on July 1 who will be traveling to the capital from the East, West and North. The final destination will be Victoria Island on the Ottawa River, where the participants will join in a welcome ceremony organized by the Anishinaabe First Nation. “It’s a journey of reconciliation,” says Max Finkelstein, one of this country’s foremost paddlers and explorers, and one of the key organizers of the South Wind Brigade. According to Finkelstein, the first overnight stop along this adventure “if all goes well” will take place at Jones Falls (June 24). From there, the brigade will travel up to Newboro (June 25), Perth (June 26), Smiths Falls (June 27), Merrickville (June 28), Kemptville (June 29), past Manotick to the Black Rapids locks, the longest single-day stretch at 43 kilometres (June 30) and finally portaging the locks next to the Chateau Laurier hotel in Ottawa to the Ottawa

nation.” Finkelstein, also a well-known author who has chronicled many of his travels, says this is a unique way to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial by bringing Canadians together from all corners of the country.

DIO U T S S E K A UR O RIDEAU L T N E D R AND GA Y 1ST 10AM TO 5PM River. What will make this week all the more special will be the various welcome events and presentations planned at some of the destinations along the route. “We wanted to have community support as well,” he said. In explaining the motivation for the event, the website (fourwindsbrigade. wordpress.com) notes it’s a chance to highlight the history of the voyageur canoe as well as the rivers and peoples who have played such key roles in helping build Canada to what it is today. “Traditionally, voyageur canoes carried cargo of furs and trade goods. But these canoes will carry a different kind of payload – ideas, hopes and dreams.  Our mission is to draw attention to the need for everyone, from citizen advocacy to the highest political echelons to the spirit of reconciliation – we want to see a Canada where all cultures can work and live together in

peace and harmony and justice, and to also highlight reconciliation with the ecosystems that support us.” “To me this will truly be a journey that brings peoples together,” Finkelstein said. While the South Wind Brigade is a mostly leisure event, there will be an opportunity for some participants looking for a little competition. On July 1, the group will be passing by the Rideau Canoe Club and have an opportunity to participate in their international Canada Day Regatta. “There will be voyageur canoe races around 10 in the morning,” he said. “For me it’s a bit historical” in that the last such races at the regatta go back 50 years. “Hopefully this can be the start of a new tradition.” After portaging around the Ottawa locks (“A good Canadian experience,” Finkelstein said) the brigade will travel one kilometre along the Ottawa River to Victoria Island (Asinabke).

Showy Lady's Slippers on track to blooming at Purdon Conservation Area The famous Showy Lady’s Slipper orchids that Purdon Conservation Area is known for are right on track for their mid-June bloom. As of today, the orchids are at 10 per cent bloom. “Father’s Day weekend is our benchmark for the peak bloom period to start and the orchids have fared well despite this spring’s extreme rainfall amounts,” said Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) community relations co-ordinator Shannon Gutoskie. “This idyllic site is home to the largest colony of Showy Lady’s Slipper orchids in Canada and we welcome visitors from near and far to take in one of the Seven Wonders

Showy Lady’s Slippers

of Lanark County.” The orchid colony, which consists of more than 16,000 blooms, exists today thanks to the care and cultivation of Mr. Joe Purdon — the conservation area is a truly amazing legacy of this local stewardship pioneer. After purchasing the property in 1984 with the help of the Nature Conservancy of Canada, MVCA pledged to preserve the site for public enjoyment. The conservation authority cares for the colony following a management plan created by Ted Mosquin, a well-known ecologist, who has volunteered his expertise since the mid1980s. The active management of the

site consists of some tree clearing to allow more light into the fen, water level management through the beaver pond (also known as Purdon Lake) and hand pollination. “Located north of the village of Lanark off County Road 8, visitors can stroll along the boardwalk for an up close view of the flowers, identify plants and wildlife through interpretive signs, discover the woodland that surrounds the wetland and orchid colony by walking the 1.3-kilometre forest trail and stop for a rest and a picnic beside Purdon Lake,” boasts Gutoskie. “The boardwalk, parking lot and washrooms are wheelchair ac-

Three big changes now happening for tourism in Ontario’s Highlands Big changes in tourism are here for communities located between Haliburton Highlands and the Ottawa Valley. Ontario’s Highlands has a new regional identity, Come Wander, which draws on the latest tourism research and marketing trends to capture the attention of visitors through a unique approach: storytelling. Shifting away from traditional tourism promotion, this new long-term regional brand deploys digital-first content marketing tactics that reflect the changing and competitive global tourism landscape. Ontario’s Highlands is now one of the first Regional Tourism Organizations (RTOs) in the province to adopt such an approach, with a goal of transforming the region — currently a “hidden gem” in Ontario — into a provincially-recognized destination known for its vibrant experiences and unmatched rural treasures. Locals, businesses, and tourism supporters in the region will notice three big changes to the tourism landscape in Ontario’s Highlands: 1. Stories are used to inspire Utilizing research specific to consumer behaviour during the path to purchasing travel, Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization (OHTO) determined the most effective stage on which to connect with consumers as an organization is during the ‘dream phase’, when visitors’ first have an inkling to get away. According to a recent study by Google, this moment in the average consumer’s journey (over a four-month period) includes more than 7,000 digital travel touchpoints, 534 Google searches, and 1400 image views. Come Wander has been created to connect with consumers at this stage to inform and inspire visitors, and to enrich their interactions with Ontario’s Highlands by sharing engaging stories of the region that connect them with the unique travel opportunities the region has to offer. Stories are being digitally shared through the new regional website, ComeWander.ca, as well as social channels and consumer e-newsletters. 2. Familiar faces are being highlighted Come Wander brings local characters and familiar faces front and centre. Recognizing that no one knows the stories, the hidden gems, and the unexpected moments found in Ontario’s Highlands better than the locals who experience the region every day, OHTO has created opportunities for locals to contribute content to the

new regional website, ComeWander.ca, and to be featured themselves. In an effort to highlight local characters, the website includes a special ‘Meet the Locals’ page currently populated with five local feature stories, and plans for more to come. 3. Hometowns are now “wander-friendly” With the new Come Wander identity, OHTO is marketing the region as the ideal place to wander in mind and body; to be guided by curiosity, not strict itineraries; and to be open to new discoveries, unexpected moments, and hidden gems. OHTO has drilled down on their ideal visitor to identify five wandering types: the Creative Cruiser, the Memory Maker, the Serenity Seeker, the Freedom Finder, and the Rustic Roamer, which will allow them to better connect consumers with the region and the experiences they are seeking. To create buzz about this wandering ideology and push launch messaging, OHTO is encouraging consumers to discover their inner wanderers by both hosting a contest and establishing ‘Urban Wandering Installations’ in Ottawa and Toronto on key dates throughout the summer. The contest runs until Sept. 15 and invites consumers to visit FindYourInnerWanderer.ca to enter to win one of five Wandering vacations. Wandering Installations will recreate the Ontario’s Highlands experience with promotional Come Wander compasses and a giant “Highlands” deck chair, available for consumers to pose in and post photos to social media. All launch tactics will drive the consumer to the website to discover their inner wanderers and connect with the stories of the region. This unique approach brings together the best content marketing tactics with an ideology that resonates with city dwellers looking to escape and explore. Recognizing the reality that visitors research travel online, the majority of OHTO’s marketing efforts will be focused on inspiring consumers through digital platforms, specifically: Comewander.ca, social media, and consumer eblasts. In addition, OHTO will be launching an Influencers Program, which looks to online personalities with a large following to share their experiences in the region. Finally, OHTO will continue its internal influencer program with The Wanderer, maintain media relations efforts, and explore paid media opportunities.

Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program looking for volunteers throughout the area

Operation Freeze helps youth to be ‘cool’ this summer Demonstrating positive behaviour and participating in random acts of kindness is the "cool" thing to do this summer. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is proud to be partnering once again with Mac's Convenience Stores across Ontario for this year's Operation Freeze 2017. OPP officers will be on the lookout, and if they catch a youth showcasing positive behaviour in their community, that youth may receive a thank you in the form of a ticket for a Mac's Froster drink. A youth may receive a "positive ticket" from an officer for a number of positive behaviours: helping others in need, being leaders, doing a good deed, and/or participating in community activities. Officers may also use the positive tickets as an 'icebreaker' to interact with youth. "The positive ticketing program allows OPP officers to engage with youth in a positive way and help to build relationships and trust," said OPP Insp. Robyn MacEachern, OPP Community Safety Services. In the summer of 2016, the OPP distributed more than 27,500 Operation Freeze tickets throughout the province. "Positive community engagement is an essential first step to breaking barriers and building trust," said Sean Sportun, ICPS — Manager, Loss Prevention & Security for Mac's in Central Canada.

COMMENTARY Canoe brigade to stop on route to Ottawa

F

our voyageur canoe brigades will paddle from four cardinal directions to meet in the Ottawa River on July 1. One group will be paddling south down the Rideau Canal from Kingston and stopping in all parts of our area on route. The three other brigades include east through the Ottawa River from Montreal; west down the Ottawa River from Mattawa and north down the Gatineau River from Kitigàn-zìbì (near Maniwaki). They will all meet at Asinabke (Victoria Island) which is sacred Omàmìwininì (Algonquin) territory and has been a traditional meeting place for first nations for over 5,000 years. The canoe and kayak have been integral to Canada’s history. Canada is a nation of rivers and a river of nations. Canoe trips bring to mind the indigenous people who designed these elegant craft and water, an organic compound essential for all life on earth. Together, the canoe and water serve as a catalyst to think of what we wish for this land and its peoples for the next 150 years. The mission is to highlight the spirit of reconciliation between indigenous and non-indig-

enous people for our collective future, and with ecosystems along these waterways that support life of all living creatures. The journey will show the historic role of the voyageur canoe and Canada’s rivers in the founding of our nation. It will celebrate the historical and ecological significance of rivers like the Ottawa, Rideau and Gatineau that connect our communities, our ecosystems, and our people through time and geography and at the same time, show the need to protect them. It will also celebrate the canoe as an icon of the Canadian values of cultural cooperation, international trade and respect for the environment. There will be approximately 15 crews (about 130 paddlers) with some people paddling in 24foot replica voyageur canoes and others in 36foot canoes. Paddlers will be setting up camp in towns and villages like Smiths Falls, Perth and Merrickville next week. See inside this week’s newspaper for details, or visit www.insideottawavalley.com. Organizers encourage others in non-motorized watercraft to join the brigade on July 1 as they paddle through our Capital City making Canada Day a day to remember.

Electric storms were much worse for Mother in Renfrew than New York I could sense Mother’s fear. She moved from the stove where she was working to take a quick glance out the window to the West Hill. I sat on the creton couch holding one of my favourite dolls, which helped the nervousness I felt because of Mother’s growing concern over what she saw beyond the river to the back reaches of the farm. Black clouds were coming closer, and thunder could be heard in the distance, like a heavy barrel being rolled across the kitchen floor. Even though it was the middle of the day, Mother lit two coal oil lamps and set them in the middle of the table. For some reason, she felt safer if the kitchen wasn’t so dark. There wasn’t much

She could work among the livestock as well as someone born and raised on the farm, and often at night, when it was blistering hot, she would take a kitchen chair and sit outside on the back stoop, alone in the darkness. But an electric storm had her blood run cold. And one was coming, there was no doubt about it. She was sure it was just a matter of time until our old log house was struck by lightning and everything we owned would be burned to the ground, and unless we took extreme precautions, so would we. Fire and an electric storm, I knew, were the only real fears Mother had. And that day, the storm sweep-

Tips for a safe summer in Lanark County DEAR EDITOR:

Everyone wants to create good summer memories. In Lanark County, we mark the end of our cold-weather cocooning by venturing out onto our highways, lakes and rivers to take part in the great Canadian summer. As every paramedic knows, along with warmer weather comes an increase in accidents and injuries that require attention from emergency

medical services (EMS). Many of the incidents that we paramedics attend are preventable, with only a little care and forethought. My fellow paramedics and I, who work for Lanark County Paramedic Service, want to share some tips and reminders with the residents and visitors of Lanark County so that families and friends can enjoy a safe and happy summer.

From page 8

• Don’t forget the first step in an emergency is to call 911; knowing the location of your emergency will enable us to find you faster. • Make sure you’re well acquainted with all the measures that will keep everyone safe around any body of water, including lifejackets, basic swimming ability, diving awareness, knowledge of the local currents, and staying close to children at all times. • Remember that you can get sunburnt even when it’s overcast, so always wear a hat and apply sunscreen generously. Avoid heat stroke by drinking lots of water, wearing loose, light clothing and planning ways to cool down. And of course, never leave pets or children in locked cars for any length of time, even on a mildly hot day. • Drivers can avoid accidents by obeying the rules of the road and driving safely and responsibly according to

www.cancer.ca

2017

SUMMER SERIES

Ontario’s traffic laws and local conditions. Please do not drive distracted (no texting, use Bluetooth for phone calls) and of course, no driving while impaired. For those travelling on two wheels, the same advice applies – but always wear a bicycle helmet as well. • Watch what you eat – not because you’re on a diet, but because heat can spoil food quickly and cause severe illness. Keep hot and cold foods separate, cook all meat thoroughly, make sure all prep surfaces are clean and avoid cross-contamination among your foods. • A new or refresher CPR certification course is a sure way to help save a life if it is ever required.

With the unofficial start of summer now underway, let’s make sure that if you meet a paramedic, it will be over burgers and a cold drink at your neighbourhood barbecue and not in the back of one of the ambulances. On behalf of the paramedics in Lanark County, we would like to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable summer. Darryl Fleming President, CUPE 4480

MARY

From page 8

our hands, that too was a safeguard, and so there sat my sister Audrey, who thought it sheer nonsense, sitting inside the house with our feet stuck into two pairs of rubber boots! If we could get our hands on a rubber ball, so much the better. And if the phone rang off the wall, we were forbidden to go anywhere near it! And that day, our number rang two or three times, and we just sat there and looked at it. Now, the storm was raging. Mother counted the seconds between the lightning flash and the clap of thunder, which she said was a sure way of telling how close it was. At that young age, I caught the fear of an electric storm from Mother. Hiding under the covers in my bed was no solution, because it was vital that I be downstairs in case we got hit. Of course, if a storm came in the middle of the night, we were all ordered out of our beds, and made to sit in the middle of the kitchen until it blew over. Father, of course, never moved

a muscle, and slept through the most raging storms as if they were happening in some other country. But he would hear again from Mother how electric storms were much worse in Renfrew County than they were in New York City. Living beside the high buildings, she said, shielded her from the fierceness, but out in the country there was nothing to stop the roar of the thunder or the cracking of lightning. The storm was over almost as soon as it came, and all I could hear was the distant rumbling of the thunder, as it headed away from Northcote. The lamps were blown out, the windows opened to daylight, and Mother’s Rosary put back in her bedroom. We survived yet another raging electric storm in Northcote.

More Important Tips for Summer Fire Safety! • Formulate an escape route for the house or cottage. Practice fire drills regularly at least twice a year. Leave emergency numbers near the telephone. • When using a lawnmower, never fuel it while it is still hot. Give it a few minutes to cool down • Carefully read and follow the label directions on fireworks packaging • Build campfires where they will not spread; well away from tents, trailers, dry grass, leaves, overhanging tree branches or any other combustible.

Use barbecue grills away from the house, tent, or anything that can easily catch fire.

• Some municipalities do not allow open air burning. Always check with your local fire department for questions, instructions and permits. For more information and helpful safety tips visit www.mcscs.jus.gov.on.ca/ english/FireMarshal/OFM_main.html This message was brought to you by the

Clarkson returns for seventh summer season to open legendary comedy When the Classic Theatre Festival’s mainstage season opens June 23 with the legendary Bernard Slade comedy Same Time, Next Year (sponsored by CogecoTV), many audience members will recognize the performer playing George, a married man who gets together for an annual weekend with a married woman named Doris, played by Lana Sugarman. Clarkson says his character is “the same mass of walking contradictions that we all are. He describes his life as a mess, but he became an accountant because figures don't lie, and he takes comfort in that.” Clarkson notes that among George’s conflicted feelings is the fact that “he considers himself happily married, but falls in love with Doris and carries on a yearly tryst with her for decades. He feels terrible guilt, but doesn't want to stop. He alternates between self-centred obliviousness and being aware enough to know when he's made a mistake, and to apologize for it.” The veteran Classic Theatre Festival performer — now appearing in his seventh consecutive summer season — says “the scope of playing a person over the span of a quarter century is what makes it tricky. Each scene is set in a distinct era, five years apart, and George and Doris clearly reflect the changes of the society in which they live. Lana and I can't play symbols though, and Slade walks the line between letting

the characters suggest the times outside their never changing hotel room, and being the messy human beings in love that they are.” Being on stage the whole time is a challenge that Clarkson likens to running a marathon that, while testing his endurance, benefits from the fact that “there's really no opportunity to let your guard down, to be distracted backstage as you wait for 15 minutes for your next scene. You get to live in the world you've help create, for the duration of the show.” While the play and film of Same Time, Next Year (with Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn) were hugely popular with baby boomers, Clarkson notes: “The characters are actually older than boomers, so if anything, this is an opportunity for a boomer to get a glimpse of what life may have been like for their parents. But for all that, Slade doesn't write Doris and George as bland 1950s stereotypes. “Slade made his name as a TV writer in the 60s, but this play allowed him to go so much deeper than a sitcom would. It's kind of the best of both worlds to me: there's a rhythm to the writing that calls to mind all the great sitcoms I watched from the 60s and 70s (like Barney Miller) but the story has depth and we get to see these characters develop over more than the 22 minutes a sitcom would afford. The foibles of these characters, the mix of neuroses and heart,

will probably feel familiar to anyone who's seen a Neil Simon play or even Seinfeld.” Same Time, Next Year runs until July 16, Tuesday to Sunday at 2 p.m., with 8 p.m. shows Wed. & Sat. It’s followed by the Shaw comedy Candida and the Peter Colley thriller I’ll Be Back Before Midnight. They take place at 54 Beckwith Street East (at Harvey). Historic walking plays are also running seven times a

week, with Perth through the Ages’ Confederation-themed story Wednesday to Sunday at 11 a.m. (meeting at the Perth Museum) and the Thursday and Friday evening ghost walk (an 1867 meets Expo67 time travel comedic romp) begins at 7 p.m. For tickets to the 2017 summer season, call 1-877-283-1283 or visit www.classictheatre.ca Submitted by the Classic Theatre Festival

True, that kind of idiocy is an exception. But it shows where this trend is heading and at what speed. At the same time, OPP is warning vulnerable road users including motorcyclists, bicycle riders and pedestrians to take extra care and wear reflective materials at night to ensure they can be seen.

In April a coalition of Ontario police forces launched an initiative called Project ERASE. The acronym stands for “Eliminate Racing Activity on Streets Everywhere.” It was started in response to an alarming increase in stunt driving charges early in 2017 which OPP say mirrors the spike in road fatalities. In February in Toronto a man was clocked by police driving at 203 kilometres per hour in a 60 kph zone. He was charged with three offences under the Highway Traffic Act, his licence

The Studio Theatre's new season is more than just six funny, dramatic, romantic plays by some of the world's greatest playwrights. It's also a whole year of reasons to get out of the house, take in dinner with friends, and enjoy a fantastic theatre experience right here in Perth. Season passes go on sale this Saturday, June 24, and you won't believe how little it costs for a whole year of outstanding live theatre. The 2017-2018 season begins Sept. 28 with Anne Chislett's The Tomorrow Box, a funny, heartwarming family comedy-drama about an old married farm couple who still have a thing or two to learn about each other. Ultimately, they discover that finding their own road is the best way to stay together for life. The Tomorrow Box is directed by Carolee Mason. Next, it's the 2017 edition of An Evening of One-Act Plays, two bitesize plays in one evening of fun, beginning with Alison Williams' Hamlette, directed by Laurie Reesor. To laugh or not to laugh? No question! Hamlette takes the Bard's classic play, throws it in a blender, and shakes it up into a sidesplitting comedy told in under an hour with just five actors. The second one-act of the evening is Virtual Reality by the great Alan Arkin, a wacky, deeply funny tribute to the conjuring powers of theatre. Virtual Reality is ably directed by Jane Stott.

Premièring Nov. 30, it's A Christmas Story, a holiday comedy adapted by Philip Grecian from Jean Shepherd's classic American stories about growing up in the Midwest of the 1940s. All nineyear-old Ralphie Parker wants under the Christmas tree is a genuine Red Ryder BB gun. What happens next is pure family fun, and a story that has become a holiday staple for millions. A Christmas Story is directed by Patricia Parry. The new year begins Feb. 1 with Norm Foster's On A First Name Basis, the delightful story of a successful but cantankerous novelist who suddenly discovers that he knows nothing about his maid of 28 years. She, on the other hand, knows absolutely everything about him! It's a love story and a mystery, wrapped in witty dialogue and vivid imagery, with revelations that are surprising, funny, and moving. Veteran director Jeremy Dutton helms this charming comedy by Canada's most-produced playwright. Next, premièring April 5, it's Michael Healey's The Drawer Boy. This poignant drama replays the adventures of a young Toronto actor who visits the rural Ontario home of two elderly bachelor farmers, Morgan and Angus, to "research" farm life for a new play. Along the way, art becomes life as the young actor's play awakens Angus's memories of the past. Roberta Peets directs this play about the power of storytelling to

transform lives. Finally, in keeping with the Studio Theatre's tradition of finishing the season on a musical high note, it's The Bridges of Madison County - A Musical, premièring May 24, directed by C. Lee Bates. Francesca is a dedicated Iowa housewife, living a simple yet dispassionate life. When her family goes away to the State Fair in Indianapolis, she meets a handsome National Geographic photographer named Robert, who asks her for directions to the covered bridges of Madison County. The two begin an emotional fourday love affair that has repercussions long after it ends. Based on the bestselling novel by Robert James Waller, The Bridges of Madison County- A Musical, features a lush Tony award-winning score by Jason Robert Brown, played live on stage by some of our area's finest musicians. Studio Theatre season ticket packages are available at the Studio Theatre box office, 63 Gore St. E., Saturday mornings between 10 a.m. and noon all summer, and an hour before each performance. They are also available at Shadowfax, 67 Foster St., Perth, in-store, by phone or online (shadowfax.on.ca; 613-2676817). Shadowfax accepts credit cards and charges a modest service fee.

Technical aids Helping the elderly live independently With age, simple tasks that once required very little effort, like bathing or getting dressed, can become rather strenuous. Thankfully, many devices and systems specially designed to help seniors self-manage their daily life are available on the market.

PRACTICAL TOOLS

Technical aids, usually sold in specialty stores, are designed to compensate for functional limitations commonly experienced by aging individuals. Therefore, whether it’s to help them go to the bathroom, get dressed, eat or move around, seniors can choose from a wide range of equipment intended to simplify everyday tasks and reduce the risk of domestic accidents. Here are just a few examples: • Personal care: bath and shower chairs, bathroom support rails, faucets with elongated handles, slip-resistant bath mats and shower treads, long-handled hairbrushes, etc. • Mobility: canes, elevated and standard wheelchairs, walkers, stair lifts, bed

Senior Living at It’s Best!

Help at home personalized care services for seniors With an aging population whose life expectancy is constantly on the rise, more and more businesses and organizations are offering personalized homecare services to assist senior citizens. Thanks to these initiatives, the elderly now have the opportunity to remain in the comfort and privacy of their own home for longer than ever — a dream come true for many! SIMPLIFYING EVERYDAY TASKS Families can choose from a wide range of residential care services tailored to the various functional needs of seniors. Between housecleaning (vacuuming, mopping, dusting, etc.), routine chores (laundry, ironing, etc.), meal preparation (cooking, catering, etc.), personal care

(manicures, shaving, etc.) and hygiene, the many available forms of assistance can enable seniors to maintain their independence and enjoy a better quality of life throughout their golden years. Furthermore, help with running errands or attending medical appointments is also available for those who can no longer drive or otherwise visit their local supermarket, pharmacy, hospital or bank on their own. The same applies for health care (blood tests, antibiotic treatments, injections, vaccinations, wound care, pain management, etc.) and rehabilitation (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, inhalation therapy, etc.) following an injury or surgery.

The Smiths Falls Community Hospital Foundation is the fundraising arm for the Smiths Falls site of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital. Established in 1981, the Foundation works with generous community donors in order to provide the hospital with funds it needs to purchase the critical medical equipment our healthcare professionals need to ensure our mothers, fathers, grandparents, sisters, brothers and children receives the best healthcare they deserve. Make a difference in the lives that follow

Choosing to leave a gift to your Hospital Foundation truly does ensure future generations will have the most up-to-date medical equipment for their healthcare needs. Your gift will be a very meaningful way to acknowledge your life now and for years to come it will also be a very practical addition to a financial or estate plan when tax issues are taken into consideration – even for those who think they may not have tax issues. Sometimes there is a tax burden left to relatives this can help significantly. Your professional advisor can teach you how giving may actually benefit your family after you’re gone. Impact future generations with your planned gift: let’s make a difference for future generations and include the Smiths Falls Community Hospital Foundation in your will or estate plan.

To further discuss how you can make a difference, contact Lise Smith @ 613-283-9743 Monday to Friday; 8:00 a.m. To 4:00 p.m.

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, even if you want to take the lead on something, you have to pay attention to the chain of command in this situation. This may require you to play second fiddle for a little while. TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you’re motivated to get started on a new project, but you may not have the means. Find out if anyone is willing to invest in your vision. GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Avoid conflicts by talking through the situation with someone who has opposing views, Gemini. When you understand others’ perspectives, you can be more accommodating.

horoscopes CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, if life gets a little hectic this week, find a spot where you can relax and enjoy the quiet for a little while. Recharging the batteries may be all that’s needed. LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, extend your magnanimity to someone who may have recently spurned you. This will demonstrate that you can always be counted on to do the right thing. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, if others can’t see your vision, you may have to forge on and hope for the best. Not everyone understands your brand of thinking, and you need to accept that. LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, now might be time for a new career or a return to the workforce if you have been away. You just may discover a new identity through your work. SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Keep up the good work in furthering your relation-

ship progress, Scorpio. Your commitment is even stronger than it has been in the past. This is a great step forward. SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, discuss your social calendar with others so that dates do not get confused and parties do not overlap. This way guests will not have to pick and choose which events to attend. CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Ignore any hurtful comments that may come your way, Capricorn. Your emotional strength is potent, and you can successfully ride out any storm. AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, if you are being called on to wear many hats at work, it is only right that you be compensated accordingly. This is a week for showing the bosses you mean business. PISCES – Feb 19/Mar 20 Remember that being in a relationship requires a lot of work, Pisces. Don’t keep your feelings bottled up and hope for the best.

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!

Margaret Loynes June 4, 1931 – June 27, 2016 Is now one of our Angels Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu, When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too. I passed around the corner, and someone saw my grin. When he smiled I realized, I’d passed it on to him. So, if you feel a smile begin, don’t leave it undetected. Let’s start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected! Love you always, Barb & Wanda Dawna & Jim, Matt & Adam Carol & Ron, Wendy & John and all of the Greats!

Neako is 13 years old, Black with White Tuxedo coloring, green eyes. It is believed he was picked up by someone driving by, and taken home, and still safe with “finder”, but they don’t know who he belongs to and unfortunately haven’t filed a found cat report. So I am still trying to spread the word to find him, and bring him home. Neako is extremely missed. Lost from 1012 Perth Road Smiths Falls/ Beckwith Area. Please call Krista 613-2994885, reward offered.

would not be suitable at this time. As she is highly energetic and powerful she is looking for that special someone who is active and strong just like her and enjoys lots of great physical activities finishing off with nice cuddles! She doesn't like cats and we think she would be best suited in a single pet home. Sadie now walks well on a leash, knows sit, stay and come. But she still likes to jump up for attention which we are working on correcting and her adopter will have to continue obedience training. Sadie is an intelligent, busy girl who is learning the joy of play and loves her red ball and stick. Antonio This handsome dark tabby is as sweet, cuddly and lovable as he is good-looking. About two years old, he has medium-long fur, short in front with magnificent long whiskers, a luxurious mane and a bushy tail big enough for a cat twice his size. Mandy At a little over six months, Mandy is barely out of kittenhood. She is active and vocal, calling for cuddles from everyone but can sometimes be a bit grumpy with other cats. For this reason she should probably be an only cat. Sneaky Pete This two-year-old arrived at the shelter so badly matted he had to have his whole body shaved. He was initially shy and inclined to hide but with only a little encouragement he has turned into a playful, outgoing and very friendly cat. His fur is growing back in beautifully so now it's like he is wearing a black velvet suit with puffy sleeves and pant-legs! Wish list KMR Powder (kitten milk replacement), Friskies Pate canned cat food, bleach and a lawn mower. Follow us if you like at www.facebook.com/lanarkanimals and/or check out our website at lanarkanimals.com.

Niknaks Paddle Shack is officially open for business BY EVELYN HARFORD

eharford@metroland.com

Enjoying the water in Smiths Falls just got more exciting. The Record News caught up with Nicola Thomson, owner of Niknaks Paddle Shack, a seasonal kayak, canoe, stand-up paddle board and bike rental service, now open at the Murphy Park building on the shore of the Victoria Basin. Thomson, in her element, chatted with passersby with relaxing, chill music in the background, about rentals. She handed out a brochure to a gentleman inquiring about rentals at the beautiful, shady spot the paddle shack has along the Rideau Canal – the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Ontario. The former co-ordinator of the Smiths Falls Downtown Business Association (DBA) said she hopes the basin will become a tourism hub. While with the DBA, Thomson said the group noticed there was a lack of traffic coming from the boats in the basin to the downtown. “Bikes (that you can rent from Niknaks Paddle Shack) are one way to do that." But the business isn’t hoping to just bring people into the downtown, it's get-

ting people in the water to explore the beautiful waters Smiths Falls is blessed with. “You can go anywhere on the canals with the lock permits we have for our crafts,” said Thomson. The company offers one hour, half-day and full-day rentals for its kayaks, canoes and bikes, and half-day and full-day rentals for their stand-up paddle boards. Thomson said she hopes tourists and locals will take advantage of the Rideau Canal and the Town of Smiths Falls, through her company’s rentals, especially for people who might not have access to water crafts or bikes. “It’s a really great way to explore our waters.” In her two-and-a-half years with the DBA, Thomson said she kept saying: “We really need someone to do this.” So: “You know what? I’m going to do this.” “I just wondered why the water wasn’t being used." Thomson, who always enjoyed helping small businesses herself, never thought she’d start her own. But, she said, a combination of timing and opportunity helped the decision along. She, her husband, Chris, and her parents are working at the shack this summer, along with two local youth who have been hired on for seasonal work.

Nicola Thomson, pictured in the window of her business, Niknaks Paddle Shack, that recently opened in the Murphy’s Park building along the water of the Victoria Basin in Smiths Falls. Things have been going well after opening on the weekend of June 10. “It was good, it was really good,” Thomson said. “We had a few rentals, and the canteen worked really well.” They even learned a few things, too. “Blue Gatorade is pretty big,” she said. “We sold out and had to go get more.” The Niknaks Paddle Shack has food and rentals, but soon

they want to add tourism information into the mix. “I love talking to tourists,” said Thomson, who is not native to Canada. Originally from England, Thomson moved around a lot as a child, going to the U.S. for her father’s work and then around Canada – eventually settling in the Ottawa area in her youth. She met her husband, Chris co-owner of Niknaks Paddle Shack, in high

school in Ottawa. The pair moved to Montague six-years ago, where they’re raising their two kids, Claire, seven, and Penny, four. “I love small town living,” she said. “I love the community we have here.” Thomson said her new, small business has partnered with the Healthy Living Festival and Paddlefest Father’s Day weekend, and was looking "forward to a busy, busy day,” she said.

Council continues discussion on the elimination, augmentation of vacancy rebate BY EVELYN HARFORD

eharford@metroland.com

Smiths Falls town council is considering various options surrounding the current vacancy rebate program that provides a tax break for property owners of vacant commercial and industrial buildings. According to a report initially tabled by town staff on May 8, Smiths Falls has had an “alarming number” of vacancy rebate applications since 2006 due to the loss of industry in town. The vacancy rebate program was first introduced in 2001 and provides property tax relief to owners of vacant commercial and industrial building through rebates issued by municipalities to assist businesses trying to navigate tough economic times. Currently, the rebate is required by the province, but recent flexibility offered means towns like Smiths Falls could reconsider how they extend the rebate. The current rebates are 30 per cent for commercial buildings and 35 per cent for industrial buildings. Buildings must be vacant for 90 days before they are eligible for the rebate. The town stated in a report put before council on May 8, that many properties reapply annually, but don’t appear to be working toward occupying their spaces. And, says the town, the rebates have led to financial consequences for Smiths Falls – such as a considerable loss of property tax revenue.

The town says the rebate, as it stands, has become “increasingly burdensome.” Smiths Falls has experienced a 520 per cent increase in the value of rebates from 2005-2014 with a peak of 880 per cent in 2011, according the report released in May. In 2016, the town distributed $148,234.06 in rebates for the 2015 taxation year. In May, council directed staff to start a public consultation process to assess the public opinion surrounding the current vacancy rebate program. The town held a public meeting in June and released a survey, the results of which were presented by the town’s clerk and director of corporate services, Kerry Costello, on June 19. The survey, with 30 respondents including business owners and commercial industrial property owners, Smiths Falls and non-Smiths Falls residents, showed that 83.33 per cent don’t support maintaining the vacancy rebate as it currently exists. The majority of survey respondents (43.33 per cent) said they would support the elimination of the vacancy rebate program, while a close second (36.67 per cent) being to keep a modified version of the rebate program – including establishing more stringent eligibility requirements such as the properties must be in condition to lease immediately and property owners must show evidence of attempting to

rent/lease, limiting the time limit and/ or geographic eligibility to incentivize owners to rent out their dwellings. However, one individual commented in the survey response that the tax rebate allows property owners to make improvement to the rental space, highlighting that there “doesn’t seem to be demand for commercial tenancy at this time in our town and the rebate allows the owner to pay the taxes and maintain the property. Another stated, “I’ve been a commercial property owner for 15 years and have never received a return on my investment much less a profit. My property is worth less now then (sic) when I bought it. Now you’re thinking of removing one of the few breaks I’ve gotten over the years.” On the flip side, another stated that they felt the vacancy rebate was a “burden on the Residential Rate Payers.” There are currently four options on the table for Smiths Falls council: 1) The elimination of the vacancy rebate program; 2) No change to the current program; 3) Phase-out the vacancy rebate program over four years with a declining benefit each year; and, 4) Use the savings from either the elimination or reduction of the rebate program to offset and increase to a Community Improvement Plan (CIP), intended to encourage rehabilitation initiatives and/or stimulate develop-

ment. Option four was added to the list of options one through three that were on the table prior to the public consultation. However, town staff have recommended that a consultant be retained to determine option four is a feasible option. If it is, the town said a procurement process would be undertaken for a consultant to write the policy. Coun. Jay Brennan said he would like to see the vacancy rebate phased out. Coun. Joe Gallipeau wanted more information on why there are so many vacant properties in Smiths Falls. He also worried that by getting rid of the vacancy rebate, it could have the effect of increasing zoning amendments for property owners of commercial buildings wanting to change their property’s zoning from commercial to residential, now that a precedent has been set by zoning amendments that have been approved by the town around its downtown area in recent months. Mayor Shawn Pankow suggested that getting rid of the vacancy rebate all together might not be the answer, and perhaps the town could augment the time limit for eligibility to one or two years, acknowledging that the retail world has changed and that some property owners go through difficult times. Pankow said he’d like to see a blend of a reduction in time limits, as well as a CIP-style grant system so that vacant

buildings could be revamped and revitalized. The idea, he said, is to deal with the “chronic abusers” of the vacancy rebate program. Other municipalities in the area gave feedback to the town on the direction they’re taking on the matter. Mississippi Mills, not pursuing any change; Montague, maintaining status quo for now; Drummond/North Elmsley, didn’t take the report to council because there was no appetite among the majority treasures in the County of Lanark to change the vacancy rebate program; Perth, no change; Carleton Place, no change. In the town’s feedback, they said they see value in the current vacancy rebate; Gananoque, phasing out the program; MerrickvilleWolford, no discussion yet at council; City of Ottawa, phasing out the program by 2018. Other municipalities consulted included: Brockville, Athens, North Grenville, Edwardsburg, Cardinal, Augusta, Hamilton, Peterborough, Port Hope, Kingston and Kawartha Lakes. Costello said that the current deadline for the town to get their decision into the province is July 1, and she said while she believes there could be another opportunity in the future to change their position on the vacancy rebate, she couldn’t make any guarantees to council. This issue will be back again to council for discussion.

Smiths Falls Mayor Shawn Pankow dons Plaid for Dad, part of a national campaign to raise awareness and research funds for prostate cancer. Thousands of people will be going “Plaid for Dad” this Father’s Day weekend from June 16 to June 18.

Smiths Falls mayor goes ‘Plaid for Dad’ BY EVELYN HARFORD

eharford@metroland.com

Who said plaid was out? Mayor Shawn Pankow joined thousands across the country who are going "Plaid for Dad" as part of a national campaign aimed at raising awareness and research funds for prostate cancer. Pankow donned a fashionable shirt with two different paid patters, combined with a plaid jacket and tie on Friday, June 16 – along with other politicians, celebrities and athletes – who are trying to get people talking about prostate cancer through the fun campaign for a serious issue. A good thing, since according to Prostate Cancer Canada, 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with

prostate cancer in their lifetime. Last year, 4000 died from the disease. But thanks to better treatment options and improved testing, the death rate has been declining significantly by almost 3.1 per cent per year between 2003 and 2012, according to the organization. Launched in 2015, the Plaid for Dad campaign has been growing ever year to help celebrate the Father’s Day weekend and help the men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. The Friday before Father’s Day is officially designated as the day to wear Plaid for Dad. If you went Plaid for Dad, use the hashtag #PlaidforDad to show your support and help spread the word.

Food hub announces 'Pigstock' event, with live music, local foods, craft beer, and pig roast The Two Rivers Food Hub is getting ready for the first Pigstock, a Woodstockesque outdoor musical event complete with local food vendors, craft beer, on-site bar, and succulent, locally-sourced BBQ whole pig slow-cooked to perfection with all the fixings. On Saturday, July 8, the main parking area and the adjacent courtyard of the Gallipeau Centre in Smiths Falls will host live musical performances from notable area folk/ roots performers Ali McCormick, Moore and McGregor, Steve Stacey and Marleen Fawcett as well as the Food Hub’s general manager, Bruce Enloe, a singer-songwriter in his own right. Running from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., this fam-

ily-friendly event will be held rain or shine, and will also include a children’s craft area, market vendors, craft beer, cash bar, and BBQ pork with all the fixings prepared by Primitive Catering and Catered Affairs. This local food-centered event is sure to be a winner for the Two Rivers Food Hub, the linchpin for local farmers and local food processors in the Lanark & LeedsGrenville area. Two Rivers Food Hub is a full service, year-round, 100 per cent local foods distributor offering the freshest, highest quality foods directly sourced from a growing network of producers and processors. Enloe explained that the Two Rivers Food Hub marketing committee was looking to

host an event that would both get people out to the hub and spread awareness while promoting local foods and food processors. “This is an event that’s going to keep coming back year after year,” Enloe explained, “We want people to look forward to a food hub community event that’s a lot of fun and will fill you up on excellent local food at the same time.” Good food won’t be in short supply at Pigstock, where guests can expect to receive roughly one pound of tender, slowroasted pork, accompanied by pesto pasta salad, coleslaw, potato salad, homemade cornbread, and one complimentary mixed drink ticket (or soda, juice). Two local craft breweries, Cartwright Springs and 4 Degrees

Brewing, will also be on-site selling their own specialty brews. Other local food and product vendors will also be at Pigstock, making this a one-stop shop of all things local. Bring a lawn chair, and enjoy an afternoon of good company, good food and good music! Tickets are $40 per person if purchased before June 23, and $45 per person for tickets purchased after June 23. Two Rivers Food Hub members will pay a reduced price of $40 per person and tickets for children 7 to 13 are $22.50, children six and under are free. Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door. Visit www.tworiversfoodhub. com or www.pigstock.wordpress.com to purchase tickets or for more information.

Cathcart expected to stand trial in Superior Court after preliminary hearing BY EVELYN HARFORD

eharford@metroland.com

Blair Cathcart, the former Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute teacher, who was charged with six counts of sexual assault, five counts of sexual interference and one count of sexual exploitation last summer, is expected to stand trial. The Cathcart matter came before the courts in Perth for a preliminary hearing on June 14, according to the court who informed the Record News there was enough evidence found to go forward with a trial in the Superior Court.

Police started the investigation into Cathcart on June 10, 2016. The investigation concluded 10 days later with Cathcart’s arrest. Since his arrest on June 20, 2016, Cathcart has been suspended by the Upper Canada District School Board. His case was last before the Smiths Falls court for a judicial pretrial on Friday, Jan. 27. These charges against Cathcart have not been proven in court, and this case is also covered by a publication ban. Cathcart will next appear in court for a judicial pretrial at the Perth courthouse on June 30 at 12:30 p.m. With files from Desmond Devoy

Denham case trial confirmation adjourned twice; next court date, June 30 BY EVELYN HARFORD

eharford@metroland.com

Smiths Falls resident Kelley Denham’s trial confirmation proceedings have been adjourned twice, with the next court date scheduled for June 30. Denham's trial was originally set to run from Tuesday, Aug. 8 to Friday, Aug. 18, dependent on the outcome of a confirmation hearing, originally scheduled for June 5. The matter was adjourned on June 5 until June 12, and again until June 30. The Smiths Falls Police Service allege that Denham was responsible for posting the confidential information of 285 clients of the Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds, and Grenville on the Internet. It is alleged that she accessed the service’s computer system to access the information, and then posted a link to one of the documents online. She has been charged with the following of-

fences: •Theft under $5,000 (section 334 of the Criminal Code of Canada (CCA); •Mischief over $5,000 (section 430 (1) of the CCA); •Mischief of data (section 430 (5) of the CCA); •Unauthorized use of a computer (section 342 of the CCA); •Traffic in identity information (section 402.2 (2) of the CCA); and, •Publication of identifying information (section 85 (3) of the Child and Family Services Act of Ontario.) These charges have not been proven in court. If convicted, she could face imprisonment of up to 10 years and/or fines of up to $10,000. Denham's case will next appear at the Perth courthouse on June 30 at 9:30 a.m. With files from Desmond Devoy

Smiths Falls police respond to disturbances, breach of conditions Police briefs from June 9 to June 13 Disturbance leads to arrest On Friday June 9, 2017, at approximately 9:21 a.m., police were called to attend a Lombard Street residence for a report of a female suspect being out of control. Police attended and an investigation revealed that a 19-year-old female resident had damaged a window, uttered a threat, assaulted police and resisted arrest. The suspect was placed under arrest and later released by way of an appearance notice and officer in charge undertaking. Male arrested after breaching his probation conditions On Monday June 12, 2017, at approximately 9:41 a.m., police were called to attend a Church Street West residence, for a report of a male suspect breaching his probation conditions. An investigation revealed that a 39-year-old male of Smiths Falls had attended a residence on Church Street West on two separate occasions. The suspect is currently on an outstanding pro-

bation order with a condition of not to attend the residence. The suspect was later located and arrested and held for a bail hearing. Male and female arrested after disturbance On Tuesday June 13, 2017, at approximately 1:16 a.m., police were called to attend a Thomas Street address for a possible domestic dispute. Police attended and it was found that a 49-yearold male suspect of Smiths Falls and a 50-yearold female of Smiths Falls were inside the residence. An investigation revealed that both were breaching their officer in charge undertaking conditions by associating with each other. Both were placed under arrest and later released by way of appearance notices and officer in charge undertakings. The Smiths Falls Police Service urges anyone with further information regarding this incident, or similar incidents, to contact our service at 613-283-0357. Information may be provided anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

This cat should have been spayed. Spaying/Neutering prevents the births of cats and dogs for whom no homes can be found. In Canada, tens of thousands of cats and dogs are put to death annually in pounds and shelters because there are not enough homes for them. And how many more die on the streets from sickness, injury and starvation? PLEASE SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR ANIMALS.

Local news matters

hat would happen if newspapers disappeared? Would Facebook or Twitter take over the news void? For me the answer is a clear, hard no. And while my position on the matter is coming from a biased place, after all, I do work at a newspaper. But it also comes from years of being a news consumer and a student studying the stuff. The entire news ecosystem, in large part, depends on local media and in particular print media – including the stories that have come out of the Smiths Falls Record News for the better part of 130 years. Stories don’t “come from Twitter or Facebook” as some people believe. They come from real reporters, doing real reporting; reporters who sit in council meetings, go to local community events and comb through annual reports and documents put out by think tanks, police, fire departments, municipalities and advocacy groups to tell stories that matter, inform the public, impact public policy and hold governments to account. Over the years, traditional, legacy journalism has been hit hard by the rise of digital online content. Some institutions are adapting faster and better than others. The numbers of journalists and reporters stomping the pavement has dropped dramatically over the last 10 years – papers have been shut down – cities have been hit hard and smaller towns have been hit harder. Some publications have sprung up in an attempt to fill the void of institutional media, but often the reporting relies on untrained reporters and citizen journalism. I must emphasize that while citizen journalism can be helpful, it should not be seen as a substitute to fill the void of reporters who are trained to tackle sensitive issues such as court cases, where there are serious legal ramifications if you get the story wrong, or investigative stories that require care, background and training to tackle. Local media must survive, in whatever incarnation can remain profitable enough to employ reporters who are out in the community, telling stories that matter and holding our local officials to account. This includes occupying a digital space and creating a media vehicle that is both accessible and digestible for the public. I punctuate this with my experience as a reporter in Smiths Falls. Many

EVELYN HARFORD View From Here stories that get picked up by the CBC and larger newspapers from the Ottawa Valley, originate with local reporters. I’ve had a number of stories picked up by national and regional newsrooms since I’ve been in Smiths Falls, including the personal story of Chelsea Metcalfe after the Highway 43 fire last November, the basic income debacle from December and most recently the Smiths Falls & District Aquatic Recreation Centre’s closure. And to illustrate the point further, even other local media will retell the Record News’ stories, heading off their stories with, “The Smiths Falls Record News is reporting…”. I’m not taking this as an opportunity to criticize other outlets for “stealing our stories.” I don’t care about the stories spreading (after all that’s why we tell stories) – it’s just to illustrate that stories come from somewhere, and without local reporters many would never be told. My colleagues, who report out of Carleton Place, Perth and Kemptville have experienced the same. A radio station even emailed my news editor to get contact information for our local athlete, Neil Doef, who is heading to Princeton in the fall on a hockey scholarship. Local news matters, and you, the community, still care. You read our stories and these days, in our regions, many of you still pick up a physical paper and many of you do not. But you, the readers, do click on our links on Facebook, like our page and interact with our content. You see, you haven’t gotten the news from Facebook, you’ve gotten it from us. So, next time you celebrate the death of traditional print media, remember that we are an integral piece in the media ecosystem. That’s why, as a 25-year-old reporter, in an age where digital reigns supreme, I took a job at a print paper; my first love in the journalism world. Support your local media and continue to share your stories with us. It’s why we’re here!

The sensational Town of Smiths Falls is getting a makeover. After months of work by a cross section of town departments and with the help of brand and marketing agency, Cinnamon Toast, the town’s new face will be unveiled on Thursday, June 29 at the Gerry Lowe Outdoor Rink at 12:30 p.m. “We want everybody to be there,” said Cyril Cooper, the town’s manager of economic development. “It’s an opportunity for the town to show its pride and look forward to our future.” Cooper said the previous branding served its purpose, but the revamp will bring a fresh start and an update to the town’s face. “We’re quite excited about it – I’m excited,” he said. “It’s good for community pride.” Cooper said the town consulted with citizens and stakeholders to ensure the new look reflects how the

No by-election will be held in Rideau Lakes

At the close of Nominations on Wednesday, May 31, 2017, only one candidate had stood for the office of Councillor – Ward 1. In accordance with the Municipal Act, on Monday, June 5, 2017, Rob Dunfield was acclaimed to the office of Councillor – Ward 1 (Bastard & South Burgess) for the Township of Rideau Lakes by the Clerk, Mary Ellen Truelove. Following the acclamation, Council held a regular meeting at 6 p.m. where the Declaration of Office was administered and Mr. Dunfield was officially sworn in to his new position as councillor. With the acclamation of Dunfield, the by-election scheduled for July 8, 2017 (Advance Poll) and July 14, 2017 (Election Day) will not be held. Dunfield will take the place of the late Doug Good who died tragically in a drowning incident on the Big Rideau last winter. Paula Banks had her hat in the ring for inclusion as a choice on the ballot. She withdrew her name, and has written a letter to the editor about her reasoning - which will appear in print in an upcoming issue of the Record News. In it she stated that she didn't want to cost the taxpayers money, and will support Dunfield in his quest for the mayor's chair, if he seeks that position in the 2018 municipal election.

Politicians want property rights enshrined in Constitution BY DESMOND DEVOY

desmond.devoy@metorland.com

A quartet of local Conservatives are continuing their push to enshrine property rights in Canada's Constitution. Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier, Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes MP Gord Brown, Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston MP Scott Reid and Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark held a property rights symposium at the Lombardy Agricultural Society Hall on Tuesday, May 23. Brown welcomed his fellow politicians to Lombardy, in the northern reaches of his riding, by reminding them that “I am in favour of entrenching property rights in the Constitution.” And property rights, Brown added, cover everything from pipelines to cellphone towers to pruning branches on your neighbour’s tree if they hang into your yard. History lesson Reid said he agreed with Brown that “entrenching property rights in the Constitution (is) absolutely vital.” A former teacher, Reid explained that property can be carved up into different ways -- intellectual property (trademarks, copyright, patents) and physical property (land and “chattel,” which could be anything on the land, like, say, a car). While wealth used to be drawn from land ownership, now “the wealthy mainly derive their wealth from intellectual property.” Imagine owning stocks in, say, Disney, or a pharmaceutical company like Pfizer, with drug patents on, say, Viagra, or even his own family-owned store chain, Giant Tiger, with “goodwill associated with that trademark.” Reid stressed that he had no problem with expropriation of land, so long as people are properly compensated for it. If, for example, the government needs to build a highway through your property, you can be compelled to sell to the government – but you must be compensated at current market rates. “There are very few complaints about actual expropriation” aside from the odd, unintended bureaucratic hiccup, said Reid. Sometimes, regulations are well-meaning but, according to Reid, are poorly executed by putting financial pressure on landowners. In 2003, Ontario passed regulations “in (the) wake of the Walkerton disaster” that every publicly accessible water source had to have a wa-

ter filter. As a result of this, some campgrounds closed as did some community halls, because of the cost. “Some of these regulations are a little silly,” said Reid. While he has nothing against environmental protections, he chided governments for shunting the costs of these protections on to the shoulders of those for whom the costs would be considerable. “When (the costs) are passed off to a third party, the government stops caring,” said Reid. "Governments must keep such items on their books as budget items.” Reid said he would like to see an Ontarioonly amendment to the Constitution, which, he said, is possible. He referred to an instance where New Brunswick was able to enshrine the rights of its citizens to “parallel, linguistic school systems” for French and English-language education. It was done by way of “an identical resolution” passed on both Parliament Hill in Ottawa and at the Fredericton legislature. He said a similar resolution on property rights could be done for Ontario. Landowners’ stake As a co-founder of the Lanark Landowners Association, Hillier has long been an advocate of property rights, “a subject I’m very passionate about.” He worked on a rural policy committee set up by Reid and “it became apparent to us that there was a need for better protection of property rights.” The committee came upon stories of regulations run amok, of the Ministry of the Environment complaining about water contamination as a result of bark and sawdust from a nearby mill, of well-intentioned policies made in Toronto “that were harming people ... government was ever-expanding its role.” Flexing a libertarian streak, he wondered, “How do we limit government growth (and) intrusion into our lives?” He was clear that “regulations are the bane of my existence. They are never debated, they are never discussed, and they are seldom known. They never come to a vote.” One example was a proposed regulation that septic tanks be pumped every two years, which has since been withdrawn. “The mandatory pumping will not go forward,” he said. Another example saw the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) trying to ex-

pand its jurisdiction to every wetland that was more than an acre in size. He charged that, if this happened, “a significant number of properties,” would be drained, so to speak, of their development potential. For Hillier, there are too many stories to count of stifling government over-regulation. One constituent bought a five-acre parcel of land near a lake that he wanted to build a house on. Four years later, after two environmental assessments, four site plans, three biological assessments -- all at an additional cost of $125,000 -- “he still does not have approval to build a home.” “If we do not allow our communities to grow ... we will not be able to keep our hospitals open” or our rural schools, he said. He pointed to statistics that show that while Ontario’s economy is growing, “it has all been centred in Toronto and Ottawa. We (in rural areas) have still not regained our employment levels” to where they were before the recession of 2008. A lack of development, Hillier believes, will mean a slow death for rural Ontario. The provincial government recently anSensational!

nounced changes to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) but has been a bit hazy on the details. “We have not seen any legislation on it yet so we cannot pass judgment on it,” said Hillier. However, “it’s moving in a better direction than it has been. I hope we do see some significant changes to the new OMB.” On another matter, a resident complained that two adjoining pieces of property, on which a relative had paid separate taxes for years, had been merged without their consent or even knowledge. “If you have a lot ... and you purchase an adjacent piece of property under the same name, you now have one piece of property,” explained Hillier, adding this was a “basic element of property law. Often, there is no mechanism to inform the landowners that that (change) has happened.” He also said that if a government agency is adamant that, say, a small, swampy area on your property is really a significant wetland, he urged “local councils to stand up (and say) ‘I’m not going to take your word as gospel. Come out and prove this a wetland.'"

alarm. In 2016, the Smiths Falls Fire Department was involved in one of the largest Lanark County fires; a brush fire along the CP Railroad on the edge of Highway 43 in Drummond/North Elmsley, between Smiths Falls and Perth. In 2016, the Smiths Falls Fire Department fought one of the largest fires for the last 20 years – an apartment complex fire on Robinson Avenue. According to the report, the fire burned 10 dwellings with a loss of $1.5 million. More than 60 fire fighters were involved in the blaze. BY THE NUMBERS Building fires: 12, down from 19 the previous year; Vehicle fires: nine, up from six the previous year; Grass, forest, bush fire: four down from seven the previous year; Other: eight, down from 11 the previous year; MVC/Extraction/ Rescues: 14, up from eight the previous year; Haz Mat/Spill: four, down from eight the previous year; Carbon Monoxide: one, down from two the previous year; False alarms: 0, down from six the previous year; Activated alarm monitored: 49 (no previous years recorded); Activated alarm not monitored: 24, down from 94 the previous year; Mutual aid provided: six, down from 10 the previous year; Assistance to police: three, down from four the previous year; Assistance to ambulance (EMS): six, down from 12 the previous year; Medical response: 10, up from one the previous year; Odor: 10, up from nine the previous year; Citizen assistance: 20, up from five the previous year; Service not required: 12, down from 32 the previous year; and, Other incidents: 16, up from five the previous year.

Another year and another annual report for the Smiths Falls Fire Department. The department saw an increase in fire prevention activities, training and less calls for service in 2016, with a total of 208, down from 203 the previous year. The Smiths Falls Fire Department presented their annual report before council on June 5. “The hard work and dedication of our volunteer firefighters and the support of their families and employers has been essential to our success as a fire department and we are very grateful for their contribution,” wrote Chief Normand Beauchamp in the annual report. “Likewise, the hard work and enthusiasm of our career staff has been essential to our high quality of service delivery and together both groups are responsible for providing an efficient and quality fire service for Smiths Falls, Rideau Lakes and Drummond/North Elmsley.” The department saw a 3.48 per cent increase in its revenues from $292,448 in 2015 to $302,627 in 2016. In part, this was due to extra revenue streams coming from agreements with Drummond/North Elmsley and the Township of Rideau Lakes. Last year the department bought a new breathing air unit, allowing the department to fill up to 30 breathing air cylinders on a fire ground. Additionally, according to the report, the department also replaced their old breathing air compressor with a new one which brought the department up to date for filling cylinders for the next two decades. In 2016, members of the Smiths Falls Fire Department received a lot of training. “As of December 31, 2016, all Smiths Falls firefighters are fully certified as NFPA 1001 level 2 and NFPA 472, operational level – one of the rare departments in the province to have all staff fully certified,” according to the annual report. Last year was also a big year for fire prevention as the department saw a 749 per cent increase in prevention activities compared to 2015. In 2016, the department also started a residential smoke/carbon monoxide alarm check program to reach homes and provided information about why it’s important to have a working Report%202016.pdf.

Henderson wins first tournament on LPGA tour of 2017 – fourth in total BY LAURIE WEIR

ljweir@metroland.com

Brooke Henderson sealed the deal Sunday at the Meijer LPGA Classic For Simply Give, capturing her fourth LPGA title with a score of 17-under par. She fired a final round 66 to win by two strokes over Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson of the U.S. and took home the top prize of US$300,000. It was a great Father’s Day gift for her dad, Dave Henderson who along with her mom Darlene, made the trip to Michigan. “It was just like the perfect day,” she said. “Dad is my coach; he’s a great father to both my sister and I, and he’s one of our best friends. He’s with us all the time and he gave me a lot of lines early in the week that I didn’t know, that I wouldn’t normally take without him there. But he said, ‘If you want to win and you want to contend, you need to take these lines off the tee.’ I did that and I had an advantage over the rest of the field all four days. So this win, I say it’s for him but it really is for him because I probably wouldn’t have done it without him.” On having her family present, Henderson said she was thankful for the support. “I love having them here. I wouldn’t be in this position without them,” she said. “My mom and dad have sacrificed so much for me to be here and I love having them around, not only for their support off the golf course, but my dad is my coach on the golf course. So I love to have him there and show me lines and angles and help me with my swing if I ever

I trust her, and she trusts my decisions as well and she lets me go when she thinks I’m right, which is great. Yeah, I love having my family here. This is my first win with

them and I’m really proud and happy to be able to share it with them.” It was Henderson’s first win on the tour this year. “It’s amazing. I’m super excited right now,” Henderson said. “I was shooting 3-under and I don’t think I had any bogeys today, which was great.

The wind picked up. I was kind of surprised when I looked up at the leaderboard and saw that I had a two-shot lead.” Henderson had a bogey-free 3-under-par 66 (the par-5 5th hole was once again converted to a par 3 because of standing water in the fairway). She said she was super happy and glad that it’s done. Lexi Thompson, who held the lead after the third round, struggled with two-putts while Henderson regained the lead on the front nine with a pair of birdies. Making crucial par putts on 16 and 18 allowed for Henderson to keep her lead over Thompson. “That putt on 16 was really huge ... to make those putts under pressure ... there are so many great names up there (on the leaderboard) and to finish on top is really exciting.” Henderson said it was around this time last year that she won her first major. “… and seeing I was kind of looking to win something this year that kind of meant so much. It’s kind of been a little bit tougher season for me, I haven’t got the results that I’ve been really looking for. But this week I played really well and things kind of started to turn around for me. So to get my fourth win is super exciting and I’m just excited for the rest of the summer now.” She said she’s taking next week off to do some sponsor work. “I’m taking next week off, which will be really nice. Kind of do some sponsor days, and playing in the CVS charity event (Monday, June 19) in Rhode Island.”

tive years. Henderson is then off to Illinois for the KPMG for June 29. “... my next LPGA Tour event is the major that I won last year, the KPMG PGA Championship. So it’s really exciting and it gives me a lot of confidence going into that tournament knowing that I’m coming off a win, and hopefully I can go there to Olympia Fields and defend the championship that really defined my career last year.”

Gerry Lowe Memorial Golf Tournament on tap for Friday fun BY LAURIE WEIR

the golf tournament Friday — where funds help support programs and projects like those mentioned above — come out to the Lombardy

ljweir@metroland.com

The seventh annual Gerry Lowe Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, June 23, with a full house already locked and loaded for a shotgun start at noon at the Lombard Glen Golf Club. Rob Garvin of the Gerry Lowe Memorial Foundation said it’s always a great time, a lot of fun, and has lots of prizes up for grabs — including some fabulous silent and live auction items. “The local businesses have been great to supply auction items,” he said. This tournament raised $45,000 last year. “All that goes back into the community,” Garvin said. For instance, the foundation just completed an $18,000 facelift at the fastball diamond (near the memorial centre). “There is new fencing; we cut back some tree limbs that were encroaching on the diamond, brought in some new infield dirt, moved the mound and made it larger, and fixed up the backstop,” he said. Little League in Smiths Falls is really growing and they needed another place to play, Garvin noted. The fastball diamond is now a baseball playing field, thanks to

Glen Golf Course and grab a burger and a drink, bid on some great auction prizes, or just make a donation; all in the name of Gerry Lowe.

Friends, Ontarians, Canadians Are you aware that our country is being taken from us by Bay St and Wall St? Consider the Province’s sale of Ontario Hydro, or Ottawa’s proposed Infrastructure Bank, set up with help from Wall Street, - a proposal that guarantees no-risk profits to the private investors, but with Canadian taxpayers holding the bag for any losses- all while giving us privately-owned toll roads, bridges, hospitals, etc. Will this be our new Canada?

The Lowe family gathered for a group photo before teeing off. the influx of dollars from the foundation. He said there were some decent benches already at the diamond, so there was no need to build a new dugout like at Lower Reach Park. This latest project took about two and a half months to complete. “We’re also sending up to 10 kids to various camps this summer,” Garvin said. “We’re work-

ing with (Joe Cayen) of Jumpstart (Canadian Tire, Smiths Falls).” The foundation has even provided the town with $14,000 to use to run the campership program again this summer. It’s a free summer camp for all kids of all ages. Call Margo Loughren in the recreation department at the Town of Smiths Falls for more information on these programs: 613-283-4124, ext. 6103. “We’re really happy with the

Amy Hogue/Metroland

direction it’s going,” Garvin said about the Gerry Lowe Memorial Sens Rink and all the programming coming into play. “The summer camp is all-inclusive (for kids of any demographic). Parents can drop them off for the day; it’s a safe space.” He added that having this summer camp is a great opportunity for the kids of the community to make each other feel welcome. So, even if you can’t get into

Longest running triathlon set for Smiths Falls, June 24 BY LAURIE WEIR

ljweir@metroland.com

What started in 1980 has turned into Canada’s oldest triathlon as participants set to swim, bike and run Saturday, June 24 in the Smiths Falls Triathlon. Hosted by Somersault Event Series, organizer Christine McKinty says she believes it is the oldest tri in Canada. There are six different events that participants can register for including the Spring Triathlon (500 m swim, 20 km cycle, 5 km run); the Sprint Triathlon Relay (same distances); the Sprint Duathlon (2 km run, 20 km cycle, 5 km run); the Sprint Swim Cycle (500 m swim, 20 km cycle); the Super Spring Triathlon (200 m swim, 20 km cycle, 5 km run), and the Try a Tri event (200 m swim/20 km cycle/2 km run). “There is something for everyone,” McKinty said, as she will take registration the day of the event from 4 to 6 p.m. The triathlon will kick off at 6 p.m. The Rideau Ground Search and Rescue Team will be on hand to help with transitions, and they will be the recipients of a donation, McKinty said. “We did not have a charity of the event this year, but are actively seeking one for upcoming year. They are still looking for more vol-

unteers. “The more the merrier,” she said. The triathlon will be held near the lock station (Detached Lock) where swimmers can enter the water from either side of the canal. It is anticipated that there will be at least 300 participants, but in the past, they have seen as many as 500. In the beginning It was back in 1980 — 37 years ago — when high school buddies Bernie Merkley and Andrew Comstock were attending Smiths Falls High School and decided it might be a good idea to start a triathlon in town for kids. “Bernie’s brother challenged me to run in an Ottawa triathlon,” said Comstock from his home in Alberta during a phone interview last week. He said an article in Runners World about the Hawaiian Ironman competition inspired them. Peter Merkley, Bernie’s brother, was an avid triathlon participant, and said if they organized one, he’d race in it. “So Bernie and I organized a minitri — for us mere mortals, it was fun … and Peter was our first registrant.” Merkley and Comstock were involved in Smiths Falls Settlers Days and the triathlon was an opportunity to get some local kids involved in the fun. By the third year, Comstock said his mother, Joan became involved to

do registration, and Merkley’s father, Bernie Sr. also helped with the event. “They ran it for about nine years, then I think it took a year off before a new organizer was found,” he said. “We tried to get more people involved, but it wouldn’t have lasted as long as it did (back in the ’80s) without my mom and Bernie’s dad looking after it. It went from 14 up to about 300 at one point.” Comstock said he doesn’t get home much — except

last year when both he and Merkley were in Smiths Falls and both raced in the triathlon. “I took about 20 years off and coached my kids soccer, hockey and baseball, but it’s drawing me back.” But now, he’s preparing for a half-Ironman in a week or so. Participants in this Saturday’s event are encouraged to park “wherever it is legal to do so,” but are reminded not to park on Jasper Avenue or the Jasper highway as that is part of the route.

ENERGY TIP! Avoid washing dishes in hot running water. Fill the sink halfway, and then scrub away.

Thursday night men’s twilight news The June 15 edition of the Thursday Night Men’s Twilight was brought to us by our good friends at Burns Jewelers. It was a gem of an evening, with the always popular Twilight Best Ball format putting a little added pressure on the players. Still, there were a few diamonds rough. The team of Clare Sanderson, Peter O’Neil, Art Rent, and Doug Henderson shone, posting the low score on the front nine. The Hoysted band commanded the back side, and continue to be a team to watch. The Roosteraunt closest to the pin prizes went to Kerwin O’Neal and Mike Donovan for their tee shots on holes 8 and 18. Mike Ross and Mike Milks took home the Burns Jewelers bling for the best approach shots on holes 2 and 12. The Town and Country Chrysler longest drives were sent into orbit by Jeff Carroll and Gerry Edwards on holes 5 and 15. The tests of skill were completed by Ian Devonshire and Jim Gunn. Cirque de Soleil, watch out! This week’s Rocky’s Road Rash ball went to John Hoysted. He’ll have a chance at the Hunt and Dopson hole in one prize at the Closing in September. Good luck!
