News - Things are getting pretty desperate for the Smiths Falls Salvation Army’s food programs. “Our cupboards started getting low in mid-May,” said Major Faith Cameron, community services officer. “Now there are more bare shelves than not.” Several factors are contributing to the heightened shortage. “We’ve lost one of our main food suppliers this year and they accounted for about 25 to 30 per cent of the food we had on hand,” said Cameron. Railside, a company out of Toronto used to ship food - close to expiry out to Ottawa and from there it would be trucked down to the surrounding regions. However Ottawa is no longer accepting Railside shipments, a development that has put a big dent in supplies for Smiths Falls. Add to that an increase in the number of people who need assistance due to job losses, disability and the shrinking resources of Hydro One’s low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP), and the crunch is really getting out of hand. “In its first year, LEAP assistance - a grant program that helped low in-

come families with their hydro bill - ran for the full year, in the second year it ran until August and this year it had run out of funds by April,” said Barb Thornhill, family services worker with Smiths Falls Salvation Army. According to Thornhill there were 115 LEAP clients this year for the three months that the Hydro-One funding lasted compared to 81 clients in the eight months that the program ran last year. “I’m pretty upset because I’m usually the one that has to say to clients, ‘can you wait, or can you go to the food bank’,” said Thornhill. “Right now we’re down to three cans of vegetables and that isn’t going to go very far.” Those Salvation Army clients who were receiving grants for their hydro bills were able to at least afford the basics in food. Without help with their hydro they can no longer afford food. Bearing in mind that the average single person on Ontario Works receives $606 a month to cover rent, food and utilities. With the shortfall in food donations, that means that the Salvation Army is supplementing its supplies by buying food to help clients. “Already in the first two months

of this fiscal year we’ve spent three times the budgeted amount on food,” said Cameron. Both Cameron and Thornhill agree that the number of people needing assistance has increased considerably and the loss of a major supply of food has just compounded the problem. It isn’t confined to Smiths Falls either. “We’re a bit low right now, we were just down in the food room and certain areas were lacking,” said Kelvin Wong at the Kemptville Salvation Army. While the Salvation Army has always had a good partnership with the food banks and often shared any excess food they had and vise versa, that cooperation has dried up at both ends with the increased need. “While we do cooperate with each other we are separate,” explains Cameron. “For example the Christmas Hamper program is run by the Salvation Army, while the Mountain of Food program is run by the food banks.” The food crisis is acute enough that the Smiths Falls Salvation Army is putting out a call for food donations and is encouraging any businesses or agencies in a position to do so to mount a food drive and the Salvation Army will be happy to pick it up.

News - This weekend’s Rideau Rural Roots Festival opens at Lower Reach Park at 10 a.m. Saturday when vendors and displays will open and the shuttle service begins.

Perth resident set to hit the water for annual cancer society kayaking fundraiser By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – Bruce Raby has turned his relaxing hobby of kayaking into a successful fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society. In a few weeks, the Perth resident will kick off his second annual Kayaking to Beat Cancer fundraiser, by embarking on a five-day, 110-kilometre voyage along the Rideau Canal. From Aug. 10 to 14, he will paddle from Perth to Ottawa along the canal. While this is his second year making that trip, six years prior he kayaked from Kingston to Ottawa. “I’ve raised almost $25,000 over the years, which I feel pretty good about,” he noted during a recent interview. His reasons for organizing the fundraiser are simple: he enjoys being on the water in a kayak and cancer has touched his life. “Cancer has affected a lot of people in my family in particular in some way and I enjoy fundraising and meeting and talking to people. If I put that all together I can do something useful like raising money,” Raby explained. It is a “meaningful” initiative to him, he said. “...I don’t want to stop doing it. I do it because I can and I want to,” Raby commented. Accompanied by his son, Raby’s journey by kayak will set out from Perth at Last Duel Park on Aug. 10. He said he is planning for a five-day trip at the moment, but may finish it sooner “depending on where we end up on each day.” He hopes to travel about 40 kilometres a day, with overnight stops in Merrickville and possibly Smiths Falls and Manotick as well. “I started kayaking in 2005, but had been paddling a canoe

forever. Since taking up kayaking, I’ve paddled a canoe once since then,” Raby said. “It’s so pleasurable and easy to paddle a kayak. I enjoy sitting right on the water and gliding along. It’s an amazing feeling.” “This is an opportunity to do something that I love doing and at the same time do something that’s useful and help other people. It’s a win-win situation,” he added. This year, Raby noted that 100 per cent of the proceeds from the fundraiser will be going directly to the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit of the Canadian Cancer Society. “The monies raised will stay in the community and be used to help individuals and families dealing with cancer,” he said. “That’s important. I like the idea and I think it’s important to some people.” The funds have been earmarked to assist with the cancer society’s transportation program, which provides rides for patients going to and from treatment appointments. Award The local cancer society believes what Raby is doing is important as well. So much so, that last month, fundraising coordinator Amanda Gifford and community office manager Leanne Waddell, presented him with the Community Partnerships Award. According to Waddell, the award is given to “individuals or groups who have held their own fundraising events for the Canadian Cancer Society.” She said individuals like Raby are “incredibly important” to continuing the cancer society’s work throughout the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville communities. “We literally would not be able to do things for the community if we didn’t have people

like him,” she noted, referencing the importance of the transportation program, which in the Perth area alone, serves 27 clients. “Last year, we gave 3,500 free rides to cancer-related appointments, just in our community. It’s a huge service we offer here and we also have local peer support programs,” Waddell added. Raby was humbled by the gesture as well. “I certainly never felt that I’ve done enough to merit such a thing, but it’s very nice,” he said of the award. “...I honestly really do appreciate it.” Fundraising events To raise additional funds for his Kayaking to Beat Cancer initiative, Raby will be making appearances at area grocery stores, where individuals can learn more about the fundraiser and make a donation. First up is this Saturday, July 20 at Steve’s Independent Grocer in Carleton Place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and then Aug.3 at Barnabe’s Independent Grocer in Perth from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. He is also collecting through coin boxes at LCBO stores in Smiths Falls, Merrickville, Kemptville and Manotick throughout the month of July. As an added incentive, all donations made of $20 or more will receive a ticket into a draw for one of Raby’s prints. He is also an amateur photographer. Raby also credits local businesses for their sponsorship, including Tackaberry Construction, Arnott Brothers Construction Ltd., Domicile Developments, and Hinton Dodge Chrysler. “It’s really rewarding when the organizations in the community are prepared to support the event as well,” he stated.

Shoreline landowners benefitting from shoreline evaluations across province in reporting on shoreline health. This can then be used to identify trends over time and across the province. Ultimately we will have more vibrant, healthier lakes.” The program has been well received by local lake associations with 17 participating in this the pilot year. More than 1,700 properties will be assessed and individual reports handed out to landowners this year alone. “Our hope is that this new information and newfound commitment on the part of land owners will translate to stewardship action on the ground,” states Barbara King, executive director of the Centre for Sustainable Water-

sheds. “We’ve been doing this program in eastern Ontario for decades with great results and now are excited to bring this method to other parts of the province.” If your lake association is interested in participating in this program or for more information on the Love Your Lake program, visit www.loveyourlake. ca or contact Lynn Preston, provincial co-ordinator at preston@watersheds.ca or 613-264-1244.

New Old Age Security option now available EMC News – Effective July 1, Canadian seniors can choose to delay receiving their Old Age Security (OAS) pension for up to five years, allowing them to receive a higher monthly amount in the future. The announcement was made by the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development. “People today are taking many different paths to retirement, and some seniors are choosing to work longer,” said Minister Finley. “Canadians now have the option to voluntarily defer their OAS pension for up to five years in exchange for a higher monthly amount.”

As part of the 2012 budget, the government announced the new voluntary deferral option for the OAS, which will give more flexibility and choice in retirement planning to Canadians. The OAS is funded through general tax revenues and is indexed to the Consumer Price Index. It enhances the quality of life of Canadian seniors by providing a modest base upon which to build additional income for retirement. In 2012-2013, it provided 5.2 million seniors with an estimated $40.4 billion in benefits. For further information, visit the Service Canada website at www.servicecanada.gc.ca/oaschanges.

sive deterioration of the frontal lobe of the brain), at the age of 61. “I had been struggling for several years with confusion, both at home and in my secretarial job,” explained McKinlay. “I finally went to the doctor one morning when I could not remember how to put the denture back in my mouth.” Right away, the doctors started McKinlay on cholinesterase inhibitor Aricept. In addition, McKinlay had heard about memantine while visiting her friends in a chat room and consulted her doctor about this medication. With both medications, McKinlay is able to function better than she did. “Seven years later I’m still chatting to the same people about these two drugs,” she said. “Gone are the days of putting the bread in the garbage can instead of the breadbox or dumping the cup of flour in the sink, instead of the mixing bowl and I even remember how to put my dentures back in my mouth.” If she tries to do too much, her brain becomes foggy and she needs to slow down and do one task at a time with breaks in between. McKinlay is also sensitive to sound and uses headphones to block out noise. “My eyes have also become affected in that sometimes I have extreme sensitivity to light which

causes headaches,” she explained. “When this happens I use clip-on sunglasses on top of sunglasses or stay indoors and keep the curtains closed.” McKinlay also had issues with taking showers because of the sound of the water and the feeling of the spray hitting her skin. So with her ingenuity, she starting using earplugs to dim the noise and now enters the bathtub at the far end away from the showerhead and only exposes one part of the body to the water at a time. Once again, she enjoys her daily shower. “Others have said to me that they have trouble making decisions about things and I must agree,” the guest speaker noted. “The decision of what to wear each morning takes up a whole bunch of brain power. A simple solution I found is to have a few of my favourite outfits hanging at one end of my closet. Each ensemble is on a hanger. I’m ready to go in minutes and no decisionmaking.” McKinlay also has other suggestions relative to keeping the bathroom uncluttered, shopping, using a curling iron, brain breaks and taking medication. To find out more, go to www. jim-mary.com. This is a great resource as McKinlay shares her experiences in journals. “Make your life as simple as you can,” she recommended. “You can live well with the condition. Focus on what you can do.”

EMC News – The Love Your Lake program is in full swing across the province of Ontario, assessing shoreline health in five regions of Ontario. Love Your Lake is a joint venture of the Centre for Sustainable Watersheds (CSW) in eastern Ontario and the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) and is operating in partnership with the Lakeland Alliance of Peterborough Green Up, the City of Greater Sudbury, Muskoka Watershed Council and lake organizations in eastern Ontario. Working with local lake associations, the regional partners are conducting shoreline assessments from boats. The process involves looking at every property on the lake and offering up individualized reports to landowners suggesting ways in which they can improve their land management practices and help increase the health of their lake. Suggestions include planting more trees and shrubs by the shore, the so-called “ribbon of life,” which has huge impacts on improving the quality of the water, the habitat for fish and wildlife and property values. So does maintaining a healthy septic system, not using fertilizers or pesticides and using nature friendly products. “We’re very excited about this program,” says David Browne, program manager at CWF, “all participating regions of the province are now using the same method to assess shorelines and provide advice to landowners. This will ensure continuity and uniformity

This year is beginning of great things for Perth’s Studio Theatre EMC Entertainment – Many people consider the number thirteen unlucky. That’s why high-rise buildings have no 13th floor, why people fear Friday the 13th, and why many will breathe a sigh of relief when the year 2013 passes uneventfully. But for Studio Theatre in Perth, the year 2013 is the beginning of great things. First, they are offering a spectacular season of plays with something for everyone. The opening production in September is a perennial favourite, a comedy by Norm Foster. Old Love is a challenging play in which ten characters are played by only four actors. Foster at his best, making us laugh one minute, then reflect on life the next. In October, the company will host an Evening of One-Act Plays featuring Studio Theatre’s own entry into the Eastern Ontario Drama League’s One-Act Play Festival (EODL). The festival is an event which this group has hosted twice it joined the EODL in 2009, and in which they have won awards each year. As has become the custom, this year they will host an evening of oneact plays at Studio Theatre, featuring their festival entry, For the Death of Me by Norm Foster, directed by Barb Guthrie. (In case you think Foster’s plays are just fluff, his play Looking won the Theatre Ontario Full Length Play Festival in Kingston this past year). For the Death of Me will be accompanied by another one-act play from a guest company. This is still in the works so watch the Studio Theatre website for details. In December, a treat for everyone

with The Wonderful Story of Mother Goose, an English pantomime by Norman Robbins. This ever-popular theatrical tradition is full of heroes and villains, music and laughter. A great way to celebrate the Christmas season with the whole family – fun for the kids and just a little bit naughty for the grownups. Then in February, Jeremy Dutton brings us the challenging drama that carries both superb comedy and powerful emotion. Leaving Home by David French, is a truly Canadian story about the Mercers, a Newfoundland family who have settled in Toronto. This will be followed in April by the blockbuster Lion in Winter by James Goldman, directed by Kathy Reid. This Broadway hit went on to become an Academy Award winning movie with Peter O’Toole and Katherine Hepburn. And finally, to end the season with a musical bang, Little Women – The Musical based on the beloved novel of Louisa May Alcott with Music by Jason Howland and Lyrics by Mindi Dickstein. It will be directed by C. Lee Bates who brought Studio Theatre’s first musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, to the stage last year. Another story to appeal to the young and the young at heart. But the icing on the cake for this fabulous season of live entertainment is that all of these plays can now be enjoyed by everyone!

CELEBRATING 80 YEARS OF HELPING OUR COMMUNITY THE EMC - 6 - Thursday, July 18, 2013


REGIONAL NEWS From page 4

Having raised a total of $7,000 along with a fellow paddler who made the trek with him, Raby said he’s aiming to bring in $4,000 through this year’s event. He gets immense pleasure from meeting people along the way. “If I see someone close to the water, I’ll paddle over and ask for a donation. I love doing that and I probably raised close to $500 on the water between Perth and Ottawa,” he stated. “People will hand you $20 bills or so and it’s amazing that they do that.” One story of generosity, in particular, is something that will always stick with him. “A few years ago when I was in Kars near Manotick and an older gentleman was sitting by a rickety old dock in front of a small cottage. I approached him and explained what I was doing and he reaches in his pocket and pulls out a $100 bill and handed it to me,” Raby said. “I don’t know if he saw the shocked look on my face and I asked him if

he needed change, but he said no, that he was feeling pretty flush that day. I’ll never forget that, that kind of generosity...” Raby has lock passes for 15 boats and anyone who wishes to paddle along with him on the trek. “They can certainly get in touch with me and are more than welcome to paddle,” he said. “They must be reasonably experienced paddlers and have their own boat.” Over the next few weeks, Raby said he will be getting out on the water to prepare for the fundraiser and said it’s a rewarding experience he hopes to continue into the future. “I’m tired at the end, but it’s an incredible feeling of satisfaction when you’re done knowing that in a small way you’re helping people and that’s important to me,” he remarked.

How to celebrate food…from field to table EMC Lifestyle – In Lanark, Leeds and Grenville there are many opportunities to celebrate local, healthy and nutritious foods. You can begin by visiting your local farmers’ markets and community gardens where local fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs can be found. Talking to the farmers will help you learn which foods grow well in our areas and how they are grown. Many grocery stores also carry local foods. At Rideau Valley Diabetes Services we offer free grocery store tours that explore foods and food labels in local grocery stores. Learning to read labels will help you prepare nutritious meals

for you and your family. You can also plant your own garden or grow smaller vegetables in pots at home. When it comes time to cook, make sure to use healthier methods such as broiling, baking, and steaming. If cooking has become a chore or you would like to take your skills to another level, consider some new cookbooks from your local library or go to www.dietitians. ca/eatwell for new recipe ideas. Another option is to attend a cooking class in your community. For people with Diabetes or Prediabetes, Rideau Valley Diabetes Services hosts cooking groups monthly in Smiths Falls and Brockville. You can register

Community Health Centre (2 Gould St.) or call 613-283-1952. To register for any of our programs or for more information, call: 613-498-1555 (Brockville office), 613-2842558 (Smiths Falls office), toll free: 1-877-321-4500.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Local MPP fed up with Hydro One monopoly DEAR EDITOR: You know something is wrong with Hydro One when more than half of the calls that come into my offices in Perth, Carleton Place, Napanee and Toronto are about the poor quality of service at Hydro One. I receive more calls from people with hydro problems than I do from people who have issues with all of the rest of the Ontario government, of all its ministries and of its more than 600 agencies, boards and commissions. The number one complaint I hear from residents since the Liberals’ Green Energy Act and its cousin the time of use smart meters, is that people have seen their hydro costs double or triple practically overnight. It is simply not believable that so many people increased their electricity usage that much. Unfortunately, there is no way for anyone to check whether they really have or have not used that much electricity. Unlike with the old meters, where you could go out and check your hydro usage to verify whether your Hydro One’s actual or estimated bills were correct,

you can’t with the new time of use meters. Instead, you must pay whatever arbitrary amount Hydro One bills you. Many people often criticize banks for their customer service. However, can you imagine a bank that wouldn’t give you proof of all of your withdrawal, deposit or payment transactions? Would you willingly be a customer of a bank that prevented ATMs or tellers from providing receipts, and sent you instead only a monthly account balance that could not be independently verified? First off, it would be unlawful for any bank or other business to not issue receipts on request and you probably would find another bank, or even file a lawsuit. But, one thing is for certain, you wouldn’t remain a customer. Unlike most other businesses, Hydro One is a monstrous monopoly and does not need to prove its customer billings to you, the customer. Hydro One customers have no way of verifying See LETTER page 9

COMMENTARY

Surviving summer vacation EMC Editorial – Just a couple of weeks into summer break and many families are planning or about to embark on their vacation getaway. Whether sticking close to home or travelling across the country (or the world), there are many challenges to vacationing with the little ones. Preparation is key. Map out a schedule and stick to it. By doing this, children will thrive in their routine. Plan your child’s naptime during the commute to your destination. Make sure to pack light, bringing only the essentials with you. Being laden with luggage while trying to pass through airport security with two cranky children in tow is no one’s idea of paradise. Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) recommends doing some research if you’re venturing across the border. Have appropriate identification on hand, receipts and documentation, and be sure to read the rules on what products (alcohol, tobacco) can be brought back into the country. Certain goods such as plants, weapons and animal products are also prohibited. Plan your own vacation and try to avoid popular tourist destinations. Most kids of a young age aren’t apt to remember touring Times Square or taking a trip to Paris to see the Eiffel tower. Save those types of vacations for when they’re a bit older and can appreciate seeing the sights. Instead, opt for activities such as camping, amusement parks or shorter road trips. This gives children a chance to relax with a hike or a swim and have some down time when they (and parents) need it. Visit the CBSA website (www.cbsa.gc.ca) to become versed on border regulations.

Tramps were transient back in Depression years EMC Lifestyle – Father was sure there was a hidden sign nailed to a tree, only visible to the countless tramps who rode the rails that said, “jump here... good food up the hill.” Deep in the heart of the Depression years, almost as if they were put there to remind us there was someone in worse shape than we were, tramps walked the back roads, rode the freight trains, and survived by begging for their next meal. Countless numbers found their way to our kitchen door, always around dinner time, looking for something to eat. They frightened me, although Father said they were harmless, and I was glad that if they did surface at night, we never saw them. My brothers were sure they often came up over the West Hill and slept in the barn where they were warm and away from the outdoor elements. They seemed to know, on the farm, the big meal was at the noon hour. They also seemed to know when the family was all seated at the table, because that was when we would hear the gentle knock on the door. They never had to ask for something to eat. We knew why they were there.

Mother would look them over, and if they were clean, having taken a wash in the Bonnechere River before coming up the hill, they were invited in. If they looked like they needed a hand-scrub, Mother would take out a wash basin of warm soapy water, put it on the back stoop and tell them to come in when they had washed up. The brothers would squeeze together on the bench and make room for the tramp, and Mother would laden a plate full of food, and I would watch mesmerized as the food vanished as if they hadn’t eaten in days, and there was a good chance they hadn’t. Father would try to make conversation. But the tramps said little. And we five children clammed up as if we had lost our tongues. I wanted to know where they had come from, and how they had become tramps, but of course, I too sat mute while the food disappeared. As quickly as they came, they spent just enough time to cram in their heaping plates of food, and then they stood and were ready to head out again. Mother would tell them to sit a spell, and we always knew what she was going to do, Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

because it never varied all the time we lived through those Depression years. She would take a brown paper bag off the rack at the back door. Then she would go to the bake table and make thick sandwiches of whatever meat we had had for dinner. Always she would tuck in cookies or a big piece of pie, and then she would go to the ice box and with the ice pick chip off big slivers of ice and put them into a glass jar that at one time held pickles or preserves, and fill it with cold water from the granite pail. Often I would see the tramp wipe his eyes with the back of his hand, as he thanked Mother and tucked the bulging paper bag into the sack he carried on the end of a short pole resting on his shoulder.

had come, out the back door and down the hill, making his way to the railroad tracks. I knew he would be waiting until the next freight train rounded the corner at the very back of the farm. It would slow down to handle the curve in the track, and Father said this was where they would jump on the train and go off to goodness knows where. We never saw the same tramp twice. And they came in all shapes and sizes, and all ages. Some of them, I thought, were no more than boys...young like my three brothers. And I would wonder why they were tramps, and my brothers weren’t. And then one day I learned at least a partial answer to that question. The young tramp that rapped on our kitchen door that day was whip thin, and as clean as a whistle. His hair was coal-black, and slicked down, showing that he had taken more than a quick wash in the river. Just as he finished tucking into his second piece of pie he asked Father for a job. He talked more than any other tramp we had ever fed. He was what was called a “home boy”. He came from England as a 12-year-old, he said, from an orphanADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

age. He was sent to a farm in the Ottawa Valley, where he suffered from abuse and endless hours of labour. Father told him there was no money for a hired man, and besides we had three strapping boys to do the chores. But the tramp persevered. He told Father if he could sleep in the barn, and have three meals a day, and a Flat-Fifty of cigarettes every Saturday night, he would work for nothing. And that was how one of those tramps who rode the rails and depended on the generosity of others, became our hired man. He really became a member of the family, and I would often see Father slip the man, who was really a boy, a dollar when he could spare it. The tramps were a symbol of that era. We knew not where they had come from, or where they were going. It mattered little what time of year it was...winter or summer, almost daily we could count on seeing a tramp coming up over the West Hill. And they were never turned away. They came hungry, and they left with full bellies and enough food to take them to the next stop on their endless journey. • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

And if they walk in with a specific product in mind, Smiths will do everything to set them up with exactly what they are looking for. If it’s not in the bright and spacious showroom, they will get it for you, Mark says.

whether or not they used the electricity, or the time of day it was used with time of use smart meters, and neither does Hydro One. No one can double check whether his or her actual or estimated bills are either accurate, or even close. I have also seen on many occasions where Hydro One provides only estimated bills for up to a year, causing huge burdens and catch up bills for many. And if you refuse to pay, you could be literally left out in the cold. That’s what you get from a monopoly: worsening customer service, increased costs and less accountability. To be fair, Hydro One’s customer service isn’t entirely its own fault; many of their failings are due to the fact they have to force you to pay for the failure of the Ontario Green Energy Act. When the Liberals introduced the Green Energy Act in 2009, I warned Ontario’s Legislature that the only way the Liberals

could pay for their plan to pick winners, was by most everyone else becoming losers. The only way we could pay for over-priced electricity from wind turbines on beautiful Amherst Island, or solar panels in Lanark County would be by gouging every other person in this province. It’s sad to realize that every time the sun shines or the winds blow in Ontario each of us gets soaked with another big unverified electricity bill. All while knowing that Hydro One has shut down our low-cost electricity generators such as hydro and nuclear, and is paying our neighbouring provinces and states to take our “green energy” off our hands. We obviously need more competition and more choice for Hydro One customers and fewer politicians insisting on dumb smart meters and even dumber “green economics.”

opportunity to apply for the CIBC Youthvision Scholarship. The scholarship involves three partner agencies, CIBC, YMCA and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada. This year, we are beyond thrilled to announce that one of our Littles, Rayna, has won the scholarship. Rayna is one of only 33 students across Canada that were selected for the scholar-

ship and she is BBBS of Lanark County’s first recipient. We couldn’t be more proud. The scholarship begins in Grade 10 and follows the recipient through their postsecondary years, up to a maximum of six years. The scholarship focuses on educational success, community engagement and mentorship. Rayna’s Big Sister, Elizabeth, has

agreed to stay on with Rayna throughout her years in high school and university to offer her the support and mentoring that a Big Sister often gives. As the recipient of the scholarship, Rayna will be eligible for a summer internship each year and her tuition will be paid for by CIBC. We See BBBS page 19

What consumers need to know about moving into storage EMC News – Canadians-on-themove often need storage to fit their lifestyle choices. Folks should contract with a company that is reputable and that offers physical safety for their stored household effects. Ensuring that your goods are protected in advance is much easier than trying to make a claim afterwards. Here’s what you need to know as you search for storage space. Make sure you completely understand the services that a moving and/or storage company is offering you, your responsibilities, the financial liability of the company in case of damage to or loss of your goods, the security of the storage space and your ability to access your goods while they are in storage.

Remember that if you intend to move into a mini-storage facility, the facility is only responsible to you for the rental of the space, and takes no responsibility for the contents of that space. Ask about any additional charges. There may be a non-recurring warehouse wrapping and handling charge. Make sure you have a complete list of the articles that are going to be stored. You may have to compare your listing with the warehouse listing to get an explanation of your storage charges. The monthly storage rate is based on either the volume or weight of containers, or a combination of the two. The company may also have a minimum charge for storage. You will pay more for large, bulky items or ones with an unusual size

this week in

or shape. You will also pay more if you pack your cartons poorly. Always visit the storage facility to see if it is clean, dry and rodent-free. Enquire about climate control. Check out their security system. Check to see how property is stored. Sofas and other large upholstered items should be wrapped with protective materials. Finished furniture should be wrapped. Rugs should be mothproofed, wrapped and placed onto racks. Mattresses, mirrors, pictures and other large, fragile items should also be wrapped. Refrigerators and freezers should be serviced. You may need to remove some items from storage early. Identify these items at the outset so the warehouse can place

them into an easily-accessible spot as the goods are being moved in. It is recommended that consumers who place household goods into storage should purchase depository insurance. For full protection, insure your goods to value and, for this protection, you will pay a monthly premium with the storage charges. If the goods are not insured to full value, you will suffer a penalty in the event of a loss. Regardless, the storage company will not accept responsibility for fragile articles that you pack yourself. The storage company also will not accept responsibility for the mechanical, electrical or electronic functions of pianos, radios, clocks, refrigerators, television and stereo sets, etc. Neither will the com-

pany accept responsibility for articles in drawers, trunks, cases, etc., nor for loss or damage from any other cause, unless depository insurance is purchased. Contact the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) for assistance in finding an ethical moving and storage company who will provide professional moving and storage services – a mover that subscribes to CAM’s code of ethics, meets CAM’s business standards and commits to mediation in the unlikely event of a dispute. Your best protection in reducing your risk to your worldly possessions is to hire a reputable company at the outset. For more information, visit the Canadian Association of Movers online at www.mover.net.

ELGIN DAYS

EMC Events – Elgin Days was a huge success over the weekend with lots of activities for kids of all ages. The bouncy castle was one of the popular stops along the way.

Camden Black feeds the goat some grass, above. Below, Christopher McAllister and Cameron Deed check out the bunnies.

Diane Warren and Carol Haapala of the Elgin Lions Club sell tickets under the shade of umbrellas, but it didn’t do much against the heat of the weekend. Below, Ava and Emma Clark feed the goats.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Invisibleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; brain injury can happen at any time EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It can happen in the blink of an eye. To children. To parents. To you. To me. June marked National Brain Injury Awareness month. But brain injury is a hard thing to explain to people who have never gone through it, because brain injury is something we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see. Susan Saucier has been an integral part of Regional Community Brain Injury Services, an arm of Providence Care St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the Lake Hospital in Kingston, for nearly 20 years. She set up the Brockville office and began outreach services in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville.

will be providing a snack and a drink for each person, however you may want to bring some money for additional drinks or canteen items. Siloki is located at 123 Poonamalie Road in Smiths Falls. The event will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. and is free. Transportation is to be provided by Bigs or parents. A reminder will go out to matches and families closer to the date for the RSVP deadline. Our group activities are a great way to get out and meet other matches and catch a glimpse of the big picture. Volunteer opportunities

â&#x20AC;&#x153;An acquired brain injury is defined as damage to the brain,â&#x20AC;? she says, quoting from their Strategies Handbook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It occurs after birth and is not related to a birth disorder or a progressive disease (such as Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease or multiple sclerosis). â&#x20AC;&#x153;The injury (can) be caused by a violent movement of the head (resulting from a motor vehicle crash, a fall, an assault, a sports injury, etc.); or it (can) be due to a non-traumatic cause such as stroke, tumor, aneurysm rupture, anoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain), or infection (encephalitis). â&#x20AC;&#x153;An acquired brain injury can have multiple effects, including physical, communication, thinking, behavioural

and emotional difficulties.â&#x20AC;? For each person with a brain injury, there are families and friends whose lives will never be the same again. On the third Monday of each month, Saucier leads a brain injury caregiversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; support group in Brockville, where she is reminded of the toll brain injury takes on loved ones. Some of the caregivers have spouses who have suffered debilitating strokes. Some are parents whose children struggle with brain injury because of accidents. Some are relatives of people whose brains were hurt because of disease. One mother in the support group says she wishes people would be more sensi-

Do you know what your kids are doing this summer?

BY JEFF MAGUIRE

children. When other moms in the neighbourhood had commitments (appointments, shopping etc.) my mother would often mind the kids next door. Moms took turns so they could do what was necessary outside the home. Today circumstances are very different. The nuclear family is much less prominent and the demands on single parents, who are becoming more and more common, are understandably increased. Those parents who are together are usually part of a dual income situation, something which is vital to pay the bills. Depending on finances parents and guardians have options today. There are summer camps and other similar programs where they can enroll their children, for a price, and know they are in good hands while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working. Lack of supervision What about those who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford such opportunities however? It is those children I will refer to in this article. So called â&#x20AC;&#x153;latch-key kidsâ&#x20AC;? are a modern reality which causes me concern. In many cases children, some of them very young, are being left to their own devices year-round while their parents or guardians are at work or out for the evening. I am a daily walker and that offers me a window into the human condition. This summer I have been seeing things first-hand that is very worrisome. I realize you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t protect people from themselves. On the other hand children under the age of consent should be properly supervised. They should also be receiving good advice when it comes to their personal safety. I believe our community is a mi-

ing bicycles these days arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wearing a helmet. Clearly the issues that arise when young people are left unsupervised for long periods of time go well beyond personal safety. There are numerous community issues, including vandalism, that spring from this situation. In closing I will pose this question to parents and guardians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you know what your kids are doing this summer?â&#x20AC;? Do you know where they are right now? More to the point, do the parents I am referring to care? If they did presumably they would do a better job of monitoring their young charges or ensuring they are properly advised and reasonably well cared for by others. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rocket science is it! When I was young most parents were far more careful about monitoring their children and putting reasonable restrictions in place which we were expected to adhere to. There were some rules to follow in other words. Sadly that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the case in far too many homes today. Somebody has to be in charge and in my world that is down to parents and guardians. I believe adults should be held re-

Reflections

crocosm of centres across Ontario and Canada. Therefore the issues I will now refer to are problems in every community because parental/ adult supervision is either lacking or non-existent. This has been an incredibly wet summer and rivers and lakes across southern Ontario are at all-time highs. We have lived in Carleton Place for 37 years. In that time I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recall the Mississippi River being so high and fast flowing in July. Yet every day I see children playing beside the surging river or, worse yet, jumping into the Mississippi to swim at the worst possible locations. I was so worried by what I saw last week that I went to the local Ontario Provincial Police detachment to express my concern. The OPP said they have received many similar complaints. But every time they chase the kids away, they return. An officer was immediately dispatched to act on the information I provided. But obviously the police canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be minding children 24/7. Oh yes, the age of the children involved? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m referring to kids between 10 to 14-years-old. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just the danger of drowning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is very real right now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that concerns me. Our town is generally safe. But I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but think that young girls and boys left unsupervised could easily become a target for predators. Sadly, that possibility is a fact of life in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world as we are all very aware. Well, most of us are aware. Clearly some parents havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gotten the message. Because many children are being allowed to roam the streets unsupervised at all hours of the day and night. The safety issues I see every day go beyond swimming of course. Another example is the number of small children who ride bicycles without helmets today. I see this happening everywhere. There has been a helmet law in Ontario since 1995. It applies to anyone under the age of 18. The fine for non-compliance is $75 according to the information I found on-line. And yet three of every four kids I see rid-

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The dog days of summer are upon us. The time when temperatures soar, humidity rises and with the new school year still weeks away, the period when many children are looking for things to do, unless family vacation intervenes. This is nothing new. Kids and summer go together like strawberries and ice cream. It was the same when I was a youngster. As the school year dragged on we longed for summer and the freedom to do what we wanted to do for a couple of months. Growing up on the family farm near Stittsville summer didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly work out that way for my brother and two sisters. There was work to do, specifically helping with haying and doing the chores that are a daily reality on a farm. Still, we managed to squeeze in some R&R and earlier in our youth, before my parents purchased the farm, we enjoyed the leisurely pursuits which, to this day, continue to be a part of every summer for school age children. Kids who are too young to have a summer job or who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have home chores to do (a large number based on my observations) often find that the months of July and August can be excruciatingly boring. The allure of summer wears off quickly when you have nothing to do. The differences between my youth and the world the children of today inhabit are considerable of course. But boredom is a universal issue and despite all of the electronic gadgetry of the new millennium, it is clear to me young people today also have trouble finding enough to keep them occupied during the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.â&#x20AC;? In my youth circumstances for children were very different. In the more gentle times of the 1950s and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s the majority of kids were part of a traditional (nuclear) family. In most cases dad worked every day to bring home the bacon. Mom was most likely a homemaker who, besides the considerable amount of work that goes with running a household seven days a week, was also the supervisor for her own

Brooke Henderson is pictured signing autographs after completing the final round of the Manulife classic tournament, Sunday, July 14.

Henderson enjoys great run at LPGA event in Waterloo

Sports – Brooke Henderson walked off the 18th green at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic on Sunday, July 14, sporting a 10-under-par 274 – and a huge grin while she signed autographs for her new fans at the Grey Silo Golf Course in Waterloo, Ont. She played with her idol over the final round of the tournament, Lori Kane, and edged her by a single stroke. Kane had nothing but praise for the 15-year-old Smiths Falls native. “She’s a great talent. If she’s what we have at 15, our country and women’s golf is going to be very healthy,” Kane said in a media scrum following the tournament. “Beautiful golf course and I had tons of fan support all week, especially the last couple of days,” Henderson, a member of Canada’s national amateur team, said after her round. “It was so fun and I enjoyed it.” With family and friends from her hometown, and a sizeable gallery cheering her on, Henderson carded five birdies in the final round. She also had one bogey. Still, she felt she could have gone lower. “I missed a couple of opportunities and I have some things to work on, but I’m happy with the finish,” she said. At -10, Henderson finished in a tie for 35th, tying her with former world number one Karrie Webb of Australia and bettering such tour luminaries as Kane, Paula Creamer and Natalie Gulbis. After opening with a one-under-par 70 on Thursday, she strung a series of birdies

together on Friday to easily make the cut at -6 (136). Playing with another LPGA star, Michelle Wie, on Saturday, she fired a steady even-par 71 leading up to her final round 67 on Sunday. The Canadian national team is handling the high school student, easing her into competitions against her peers where she can make a run for titles with a few cameos on the LPGA Tour and other pro circuits to give her experience. There’s no need to rush, notes her national team coach, Tristan Mullally. “She’s got a lot of winning before we even think about that,” he said. “As long as she continues to hit those marks (progress targets), she’ll end up where she wants to be.” Henderson has already excelled in the ‘minor leagues’, winning a Canadian women’s professional event last year to become the youngest champion of a pro tournament in golf history. This year she played well enough on the same mini-tour (two top-three finishes) to earn a spot in the field of the CN Canadian Women’s Open later this summer. It will be her second appearance in the national championship. (She missed the cut last year.) In a phone call with her father, Dave, he said his daughter was back on the road to Pinehurst, North Carolina this week to take part in the amateurs North and South Women’s Championship. “After that, she’ll be home for a day, then off to Quebec,” he said. “She’ll have a few days off come mid-August.” With files from Golf Canada.

Const. Mike Gallagher, body builder; Sgt. Jodi Empey, swimmer; and Const. Brent Pellett, runner, are headed to Belfast, Northern Ireland at the end of this month to compete at the World Police and Fire Games, Aug. 1 to 10.

Local officers prepare for world stage By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News – Just weeks to go before the World Police & Fire Games (WPFG) begin and three of Smiths Falls’ finest will be competing in what is considered the third largest international multi sport event in the world. Sgt. Jodi Empey, Const. Mike Gallagher, and Const. Brent Pellett of the Smiths Falls Police Service are headed to Belfast, Northern Ireland to compete against more than 7,000 serving and retired police, fire, prison and border security officers from around the world. “The games are very competitive, not just something one decides to do on a whim,” said Empey, who competed at the WPFG games held in New York two years ago. Empey has been training hard with the Masters in Perth and the Stingrays and says it’s a humbling experience training with 18-year-

old elite athletes! “Jodi came home with four medals last time,” jumped in Pellett. While she won’t talk about her medals, a little digging revealed that she brought home the gold in the Women’s Master (A) 100 meter butterfly swimming event, a bronze and silver in two of her other individual events and another gold in the relay event. This year Empey will be competing in the 100m and 50m butterfly, the 100m freestyle, the 200m medley, the 50m freestyle, the 100m individual medley as well as a couple of relays. “I’ve been in touch with the women I did the relay with in New York, one was from the U.S., one from Belgium, and one from Romania and we’re going to compete together again as a relay team,” said Empey. Pellett was also at the New York games, but his events were cancelled when Hurricane Irene

swept through. This time weather permitting, he’s competing in the half marathon and the 10km cross country run. “I’ve been running for eight years and competing at different events including the ironman and triathlons,” said Pellet who enters the 2013 WPFG in the under 40 heavy weights division. “I’m aiming for a personal best in the half marathon which I do right now in about 1:40.” Entering the WPFG for the first time, Mike Gallagher, who trains in Ottawa and Carleton Place is competing as a body builder. “I’ve been lifting weights for about 10 to 12 years, but I started training seriously about four years ago,” said Gallagher who also has to work with a nutritionist and is currently on a diet of fish and cucumbers in preparation for competition.

The Reading Rocks program is designed to help children who may be struggling with the mechanics of reading and/or reading comprehension. Both tutoring programs are free to all patrons who hold a library card. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We run the tutoring program in two-week blocks and tutor each child every day for an hour session,â&#x20AC;? said Rebecca Cauley, literacy coordinator.

The Vineyard earns high praise By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Business – There’s no doubt most of us enjoy a glass of wine every once in a while, but imagine how much more enjoyable it would be if you knew it hadn’t cost an arm and a leg and was also an award winner. That’s what you’ll get at The Vineyard, where customers can have their own wines made affordably in Smiths Falls. “This year we won a silver for our Dragon Fruit Raspberry White Shiraz and bronze for our Chocolate Hazelnut Port at the International Winemaking Competition in Santa Barbara,” said Eric Beere, owner/operator. This year’s winners are now on special and while customers can’t taste them before the batch is ready, the same satisfaction guarantee with a full replacement or refund applies here as it does on all The Vineyard’s offerings. Last year The Vineyard won gold for its Italian Amarone and a silver for its Reisling Ice Wine. Considering the company competes against 4,500 en-

tries from nine countries that’s really not bad at all. “I’ve been sending wines into the competition for three years,” said Beere. The beauty of these competitions is the feedback the judges give, informing the winemaker what was good about the wine and what needs improvement in terms of appearance, aroma, taste, after taste and overall impression. “The first year I sent in a wine that was one year old, and they said it was acceptable,” explained Beere. In the second year he sent the same wine again but aged another year, and this time won gold. “So I learned that that particular wine needed to age for two years,” said Beere. The entire enterprise has been a huge learning experience for Beere, one that he finds fascinating enough to want to perfect, and share with his customers in a no pressure, friendly atmosphere. “It’s amazing what you don’t know, Photo By HOWAIDA SOROUR you don’t know,” said Beere, who is working towards his sommelier desig- Award-winning winemaker Eric Beere, shows off award winning wine at his business’ new location at 15 Broadview Ave., in Smiths Falls. nation.

Paddle on over to Otty Lake for a crack at world record News – If you have a kayak or canoe, and are in the Otty Lake area on Saturday, July 27, you might want to take part in the first ever PaddlePower event. Organizers are aiming for a flotilla of more than 200 kayaks

and canoes to make an attempt at the Guinness World Record, currently, 1,903 boats. “We’re not going for the record, but that’s a kind of a neat thing,” said Barb Hicks, a member of the lake association, who looks after

the board’s newsletter. “This is the first time we’ve done something like this. It’s just a social time and to get out and have some fun in the summer.” This promises to be a fun, community-building event, she

added. Residents, families and friends are all welcome, and all children must be supervised by their guardians. The barbecue and entertainment is free to members of the Otty Lake community.

property chair. Other members of the executive team are Laura Jewett, Tammy Peckham, Helen Wilkinson, Jean Lasenba, Dawn Dunlop, Len Johnston, Peter MacPherson, David Neilson and Josephine Campbell, president of the Ladies Auxiliary. Our general meetings stop for the months of July and August, however the executive holds monthly meetings and the Legion is still a very active place at all times. Our veterans service officer Jim Jenkins and our branch service officer Jim Pevere invited our provincial veterans service officer Patricia Royale to visit our branch on June 12, where they met with 24 local veterans concerning their pensions and services available to them through Veterans Affairs and the Legion. They spent many hours contacting veterans that were associated with the Legion and once the newspaper ads were published they interviewed other veterans, spouses and widows who required assistance. They have been doing many follow ups both at the Legion and at the veterans’ homes, providing assistance in filling out forms to ensure they receive the maximum coverage available. Our bursary chairman Ken Johnston was busy before the end of the school year finalizing

up our bursary grants to local students that are continuing their education at the college or university level in the coming year. We hosted the eastern Ontario dart championships. The finals of this tournament are available on Cogeco for your viewing. We hosted a barbecue for those that made plans to attend the Welcome Home high school reunion dance on June 29 which was a great success. Our colour party led the Canada Day Parade to Lower Reach Park and assisted in the opening ceremonies. The Monday night bid euchre, which is held in the Canadian room and duplicate bridge, which is held in the Lancaster room continue during the summer and both events start at 7 p.m. On Tuesday afternoon there is duplicate bridge lessons with games played in the afternoon starting at 1 p.m. Bingo is held each Thursday evening in the main Lancaster hall at 7 p.m. with a canteen available from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Our jamborees, which are held the third and fifth Sunday of each month starting at 1 p.m. and running to 6 p.m. are also continuing over the summer. Dinner is served at 5 p.m. Our air conditioned, licensed, Wi-Fi available halls are booked for many private events over the summer months such as wed-

dings, stag and doe parties, birthday parties, meetings and funeral luncheons as required. If you require a hall please contact our office at 613-2832690 for availability. Christmas party bookings are already being made, don’t be disappointed, call early. We are busy planning events starting in September such as Legion week Sept. 15 to 21. Our veterans luncheon held during Legion Week. Our TGIF days will be starting up again in the fall. We are also planning on having some special events, which will be advertised prior to the event. In October we will be hosting the District G convention for approximately 200 visitors to our great town and of course our annual poppy campaign. We are in the process of investigating cost effect and fundraising efforts to install an elevator lift that would assist our aging veterans to visit all three floors of their building. We continually try to provide assistance to service clubs and charities within our community during the year. If your nonprofit organization is having an event let us know if we can assist or display your advertising on our information boards. For information call between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 613-283-2690. New members are always welcome and you don’t have to have a military background to join the Legion.

News – They’ve had their ups and downs, but the last two years have seen a pleasant upward shift for the Smiths Falls and District Club for Youth (SFDCY). Doris Marshall, with her energy and strong sense of direction, has helped them find their feet, gain a sense of belonging and even embrace change, but now Marshall is off to explore a new opportunity. “I’m headed to Inuvik, Northwest Territories - population 3,500 - they need an interim executive director for the youth centre there, so I’ll be going for six months,” said Marshall, a Smiths Falls native. It’s a challenging appointment in a challenging environment, at a youth centre that had been closed for two years and just reopened last year. “In terms of the community of Inuvik, they need someone like (Marshall), with that outgoing, energetic personality – someone who can get out there and connect with the community as she did in Smiths Falls, someone who gets teens - quite simply, she has the track record,” said Les Voakes, executive director of Youth Centres Canada, who picked Marshall for the job. While Marshall admits she has thoroughly enjoyed her time in Smiths Falls in spite of or rather because of the challenges, she’s also excited to pursue an opportunity to go to Inuvik, a place

she’s never been before. “I’m pretty fearless when it comes to my professional life, so I’m going to do it,” said Marshall, a former critical care nurse. In an interesting shift, the same youth who resisted Marshall tooth and nail when she first arrived back in Smiths Falls, are now sorry to see her leave even for a short while. “Doris is number one, and we will miss her so much, have fun for six months and treat them like you do us,” Travis Hull, a 17-year-old SFDCY member posted on social media. There’s no doubt the youth and staff at SFDCY will feel Marshall’s absence but they also agree that they’re confident Adam Gariepy, the current program coordinator, will be able to make the transition to interim executive director painless. “I think the transition is going to go well, because Adam and Doris have been working together closely and Adam knows his stuff,” said Rebecca St. Pierre, youth worker at SFDCY. Another Smiths Falls native, Gariepy holds a police foundations diploma from St. Lawrence College and has been with SFDCY for nearly two years. Most of the first year he was a volunteer, before sliding into the paid position of program coordinator a year ago, and now interim executive director. “It means I have to put my career as a police officer on hold for six months, but I’m OK with that - it’s still a stepping stone for

me,” said Gariepy. He says he’s excited both for himself and Marshall and sees her temporary absence as an opportunity for him to grow, to meet a new challenge and assume a new role both front and back of house, as it were. “Realistically, I’m also looking forward to making a lasting mark that lives on after I take up my own career,” said Gariepy Marshall’s leadership over the past two years has laid down such a strong foundation that it has achieved exactly what she’d hoped for - a place youth could call their own where they feel they belong. “I come here, because I like how everyone acts like they’re family and we’re all here for each other,” said Autumn Travena, 14-year-old SFDCY member. Thanks to Marshall’s deft handling of their objections and resistance, she has also shown the youth how to create both structure and freedom and achieve the security they needed to embrace, rather than resist, change. “I think it’s awesome that (Gariepy) will be the boss; it’s going to be a good opportunity for him,” said Jared Ruttan, a 14-year-old member of SFDCY. They’re even expecting Gariepy to make changes and aren’t particularly worried about it. “There probably are going to be some changes, but they’ll be good,” said Brandon Dicaire age 14, and a regular at SFDCY.

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - JULY 1, 1913

The King struck a log below Burritt’s Rapids on Wednesday on her trip from Ottawa to Kingston. It delayed the boat a few hours. The Record wishes to congratulate Misses Ethel L. Cairns, Edith M.P. Church, Ula A. Lyle, Bertha C. Manders, on passing the graduation examinations from the Ottawa Normal school so successfully. Patrick O’Brien was up before police magistrate court yesterday for contempt of the liquor act and for being disorderly. He was fined $16 too. Last night, the chief had two young fellows turned over to him by the C.P.R. for trespassing on their property. This morning they got 30 days in Perth. Pickpockets were busy on the train going to Cornwall on Saturday but they kept away from Smiths Falls, as far as we know. Sir William McKenzie has gone over to England again and taken a good sized bag along. He generally brings it back full. 50 YEARS AGO - July 18, 1963 Smiths Falls will take immediate steps to participate with Lanark County in the formation of an Emergency Measures Organization. A committee of three members of council was appointed on Monday night to meet on July 22 with a committee of county council in Perth to discuss all arrangements with EMO officials. Charles Broadbent, area coordinator, told members of council on Monday that the provincial government has passed Bill 91 which now makes it necessary for all municipalities to formulate plans for emergencies. Water consumption in Smiths Falls for the fist six months of this year reached the all-time high established last year. However, the 419,314,000 imperial gallons pumped by the local water works was the second highest on record in Smiths Falls. The one day record was shattered on June 26 of this year when 4,257,000 gallons were used over a 24-hour period.

Enjoying a warm welcome in town

Members of Montague Township council are livid over a “screw up” they say has left their entire tax arrears billing in shambles. Township Reeve Bill Buffam said this week the firm responsible for completing the billing has compounded interest on any outstanding tax accounts and in addition shows those still owing tax dollars as paid up and those not owing as still owing the township. The new Planter’s Peanuts processing plant is up and running – but six weeks later than expected. David Llewellyn Fisher, director of manufacturing for both the Hershey and Planter’s operations in Smiths Falls since March 1, said Monday nut processing at the new facility began Monday morning. Production had originally been scheduled to be in full swing by June but a provide-wide electricians strike, immediately followed by a carpenters strike, forced delays.

Lifestyle – It’s been two weeks since I joined the team at the Smiths Falls Record News/EMC. It’s been hectic, interesting and so much fun and I have to say no other community has ever made me feel more welcome than Smiths Falls. To the many people I have met, including Mayor Dennis Staples and the members of Smiths Falls council, thank you for your warm and gracious welcome. And please, I know my name is a mouth full so feel free to call me by my nick-name Heddy. Over the years (there have been a few) I have mostly worked as a freelance journalist with various publications including a longish stint as a financial reporter, covering Bank of Canada rate announcements and Statistics Canada economic releases. It was at times exciting and certainly very interesting during the first years of the economic meltdown but now I am thrilled to be back to my first love -community news. It’s going to take me a while to get to know all the nooks and crannies of this area, because

10 YEARS AGO - July 9, 2003 In what is turning out to be a controversial move which has pitted the town against one of its own key developers, the municipality is teaming up with the Township of Rideau Lakes to annex several properties on the north side of Lombard Street. Of these, three vacant parcels totaling 5.2 hectares (13 acres) will be developed into a new 86,000 square foot stand-alone Wal-Mart department store. Compiled by Desmond Devoy

HOWAIDA SOROUR Heddy’s Ramble though Merrickville is home, most of my travel has been towards Kemptville, where my children went to school, and Ottawa where work beckoned. As to my background, well, I was born in Egypt and came to Canada by myself at the age of 25 and am now a proud Canadian citizen. I return for visits on a fairly regular basis to visit my mother, brothers, nieces and nephews and was back in Cairo earlier this year, and can honestly say that the events of the last few weeks – which have galvanized the world – didn’t come as a surprise. What did come as a surprise was the world’s reaction and the media coverage of the events

that unfolded. Was it a coup? Was President Morsi freely elected? Well that depends – should zombies vote freely in an election for the living? Three weeks ago, the Al Ahram newspaper (loosely equivalent to the Globe here) reported that nine million identity cards belonging to deceased Egyptians registered votes for Mr. Morsi during the presidential election. Now the entire population is 90 million, so that’s 10 per cent of the population. There was a 51 per cent voter turnout for the presidential elections. Mr. Morsi took 51.7 per cent of those votes compared to 48.3 to his closest runner-up. Now math isn’t my strong suit but even I can see that there may have been a few too many zombies voting for Mr. Morsi for this to be called a fair and free election. So no, like many others with families still in Egypt I don’t see what happened as a military coup. A military intervention certainly, but a welcome one that may well be the most efficient road to the kind of secular democracy we enjoy here.

Feel good musical coming to town Entertainment – Prepare to tap your feet and hum a tune. The Smiths Falls Community Theatre Group is in the final stretch of rehearsal for their upcoming production of the musical Pollyanna by Trish Lindberg, adapted from the book by Eleanor H. Porter. The play opens Aug. 8 at the Station Theatre on Victoria Avenue. “I like to do musicals,” said Lynda Daniluk, director, “and because we’re in a train station I like to pick plays with a train connection, and plays that young people can get involved in especially in the summer.” This musical revolves around Pollyanna, a young orphan who arrives by train to live with her dour Aunt Polly in a small town. Inquisitive and cheerful, Pollyanna is also armed with an infallible weapon - her late father’s ‘Glad Game’. In this simple game there is always something in everything to be glad about and as the days go by she slowly infects the village - but it’s a near tragedy that finally drives her message and the true value of the Glad Game home to the townsfolk. “I picked this play for the mes-

sage, because in the summer it’s nice to feel good,” said Daniluk. At a rehearsal just four weeks before opening night, the cast is clearly happy to be there, excited without panic, relaxed without apathy. It’s a pretty large cast and the age range is substantial, but everyone clearly wants to be there. “I’m in the Kite Flyer chorus and one of the town’s folk,” said nine-year-old Samantha Salter. “I love it; it’s one of my favorite activities, because I love acting and I love singing.” While Salter may be the youngest, she more than holds her own on stage beside adults and seniors. Loyal audience members will also no doubt recognise some familiar faces among both the main characters and the chorus. In this production Sheila Jasiak who has seven years of theatre experience under her belt plays the dour Aunt Polly opposite Valerie Brown as Pollyanna. “I’m really enjoying this role. It has a great message and my daughter is in it, besides Linda is fantastic to work with,” said Jasiak. There are also a good number of male and female teenagers

in both the chorus and the main cast. “It’s really fun, and I get to hang out with my friend and get to meet new people,” said Bailey Bisaillon who sings and dances in the chorus. “It’s a fun play; it’s sometimes sad and upbeat at the same time.” Then there’s the crew, the people behind the scenes who make/beg or borrow costumes, find and make props, set up and operate the lighting, change the scenes and make sure the actors are where they’re supposed to be and then of course the people who design and build the set. “This is the first set I’ve ever designed,” said Noel White who figured his background in art and architectural modeling would be handy skills for the job. “It was a lot more work than I anticipated,” he added. While it’s challenging to pull a musical together in three months, this director clearly has it all well in hand. Certainly her cast and crew of more than 50 are utterly committed to her and her vision for the play. “I have a lot of fun and they’re (cast and crew) so patient with me as I work through everything,” said Daniluk.

Throwing pebbles at her window, Jimmy (played by Nathaniel Flinn) manages to get Pollyanna’s (played by Valerie Brown) attention to thank her for trying to find him a permanent home, even if it didn’t quite work out - yet. This is a scene from the musical Pollyanna by Trish Lindberg, based on the book by Eleanor Porter, playing at the Station Theatre on Victoria Avenue Aug. 8 to 18.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Enough to change a veteran’s vote DEAR EDITOR: Re: Veteran Benefits Recently I received information that my MP Scott Reid voted against a motion (M-422) that would, if passed, enhance and expand eligibility for the Last Post Fund. The Last Post Fund is supposed to ensure that no Veteran goes without a dignified funeral and burial. Presently most Veterans that served since the Korean War do not qualify. We now have Veterans of the Balkan War, the Iraq war and the Afghanistan War that do not qualify for the Last Post Fund. Motion M-422 contained the recommendations of the Veteran ombudsman, The Royal Canadian Legion and other Veterans organizations, to enhance the financial and eligibility of the Last Post Fund but only the monetary value was in the budget.

I called Scott Reid’s office to inquire why he voted against the motion and was told it was a Liberal tactic to embarrass the government, and to call Minister Blaney’s office for more information. Well, if voting to enhance Veterans benefits is embarrassing to the government then I’m supporting the wrong government. Also Minister Blaney is not my MP, Scott Reid is my MP and he has stated in the past that he would vote his conscience except for government issues and finance. I have voted for Scott Reid in every election that he has contested but now, in conscience, I must change my commitment. James R. Jenkins C.D. Veterans Service Officer Smiths Falls, Branch 95

With a selection of her handiwork laid out on the table in front of her, Olga Travis holds up the letters she has received from Buckingham Palace thanking her for the hand-knit baby outfits she gifted two generations of royal babies.

Smiths Falls woman has connection with Royal birth By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News - One lady in Smiths Falls has a small but touching connection with two generations of royal babies. Originally from Newfoundland, Olga Travis has been knitting since she was five years old. “I was a very wild child, so my aunt taught me to knit because they wanted me to sit still,” says Travis. She has also knitted delightful and fine outfits for not one, but two royal babies. The first was in 1982, when she knit a Matinee jacket with matching bonnet and booties for the then-expectant Princess Diana.

That baby grew up to be Prince William, so when his wife Princess Kate was expecting, Travis decided to knit a second and identical outfit. On both occasions she sent a letter with her gifts. In the second letter she explained how she had previously knit the same set for Dad. In each instance Travis received a letter back from Buckingham Palace thanking her for her kindness and fine workmanship. In the ensuing years, Travis has knit, crocheted and given away hundreds if not thousands of beautifully hand-crafted items, from socks to mitts, to slippers to shawls to butterflies for fundraisers and charities.

Thomas (Tom) Cairns

On July 1, 2013, at the age of 94 Tom passed away surrounded by loving family at the Perth Hospital. He went to join Connie, his beloved wife of 70 years where no doubt they are once again “dancin’ the light fandango.” Left to cherish his memory are his daughter Pat Cairns (Marnie Dickinson) and their son Carl of Perth and sons Tom (Susan) of Cowichan Bay, BC and Bob (Maria) of Calendar, Ont. and their children Laura and Bob Jr. Tom was recently predeceased by his grandson Theo of Cowichan Bay, BC. Tom will be greatly missed by his family, friends, fellow music lovers and local business people who he dropped in on regularly. He had a smile for everyone he met and people knew him to be a kind and gentle soul. Tom and Connie were to be seen at most every music event in Perth always tapping the rhythm and singing along. The Stewart Park Festival will not be the same this year without them. In retirement Tom loved salvaging and repairing the unfixable and puttering in the workshop. Winters were spent in Florida, Bermuda and BC. He enjoyed assisting his Perth neighbours and was called upon to use his precise lettering skills that he developed during his 40 years at DeHavilland Aircraft as a draftsman. Family life was Tom’s greatest priority and leisure time was spent with his wife and children on picnics, coast to coast camping trips and Sunday drives. His hobbies included the raising of rabbits and carrier pigeons and woodworking. Our Dad was an exceptional Dad, always placing us first. He was a great role model and a hard act to follow. Family and close friends will gather to honour Tom privately. Flowers are graciously declined. Memorial donations can be made to the Stewart Park Music Festival or the Perth Hospital, Great War Memorial site.

DAVISON V. Malcolm (Mac) Beloved husband to Betty (Trotter) Davison for 64 years. Peacefully on June 14, 2013 at Kingston General Hospital at the age of 86. Suddenly as a result of a stroke; Mac and his family received excellent care and support from the KGH staff. Born at home in Philipsville on February 4, 1927. Mac was pre-deceased by his parents, Hilyerd Davison and Mabel (Howard) Davison, of Philipsville, and a brother Howard Davison of Toronto. Mac was raised on the Davison farm in Philipsville and educated in Philipsville and Elgin. In 1946 Mac left home to see some of Canada. He ventured out west where he worked on a family farm in Coronation, Alberta. He then worked for Ontario Hydro from 1947 to 1949 laying tower lines all over the province of Ontario. Mac returned to Philipsville in 1949 and married his wife Betty - they lived and worked for a few months in Pembroke before coming home to take over the family farm in Philipsville. Mac was a full-time, hard-working dairy farmer for many years. As well as running the dairy farm, Mac ran a sugar bush each spring. In the summers Mac worked construction for a number of years. During the war years and as a young father in the 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Mac found time to play ball and hockey. He especially enjoyed baseball and caught and played 2nd base for the Chantry team, many exciting games occurred against teams from Jasper, Eastons Corners, Frankville and Toledo! Mac was a jack of all trades who loved working and was adaptable to any work situation. In 1968 Mac joined the County of Leeds and Grenville - he worked for the County for 22 years retiring at the age of 63. Mac and his colleagues had many exciting adventures plowing snow during raging snowstorms. There are very few roads in the County that Mac has not driven or plowed! Mac was always moving and lived by the â&#x20AC;&#x153;work before playâ&#x20AC;? adage. His energy and passion for life continued throughout his retired life. He was an active member of the Delta Mill Society, Honourary Director Delta Fair Board, and the Elgin United Church. In his later years Mac indulged in his love of genealogy and history. His spent many hours sorting and researching documents about his family and community and volunteering at the Heritage Society of Bastard and South Burgess. Mac was very proud that his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memoirs were published by the Heritage Society in May 2013, just a few weeks before his sudden passing. Mac is best remembered for his love of family, his friendliness, his sense of humour, amusing stories and love of sports. He loved nothing more than to be out dancing with Betty, enjoying family celebrations, talking with his many friends, or attending his grandchildrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; many hockey and ball games, graduations and special events. Mac is survived by his wife Betty (Trotter) Davison. They were married in Philipsville on June 25, 1949. Mac is survived by 6 children. 12 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. Carol (Jim) Olson (Adrienne and Alison) of Oshawa, Gayle (John) Turcotte (Crystal and Melanie) of Smiths Falls, Jim (Jennifer) Davison (Cale, Tyler and Tara) of Westerose, Alberta, Guy (Cathy) Davison (Ben and Alex) of Westport, Jill Ready (John Bell) (Cody) of Elgin and Pat (Tom) Morell (Justin and Samantha) of Rideau Ferry. Survived by one sister, Margaret McNally. Mac lived his Christian values each day as is shown in his devotion to his family and his community. His was a life â&#x20AC;&#x153;well-livedâ&#x20AC;?. His family is grateful for a loving husband who was devoted to his wife, for a caring, supportive father who was always there for his children and for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;funâ&#x20AC;?, hilarious grandfather.

Rideau Ferry Regatta adds extra dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to weekend agenda By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The biennial Rideau Ferry Regatta is adding a meet and greet to its two-day weekend agenda next month as boat enthusiasts will have a chance to see some of these watercraft classics at Crystal Palace in Perth on Friday, Aug. 16. Jim Graff, a member of the regattaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board and town councillor in Perth, says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thrilled that town staff want to extend the tourism welcome wagon to include an extra dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so happy that the town wanted to host this event on the Friday of the regatta,â&#x20AC;? says Graff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only will it be good for tourism to town, but it will also show the government that we have a working relationship with neighbouring municipalities to keep Beverages Lock (upper and lower) open.â&#x20AC;? Just this year, lockages at Beverages Locks were changed from an on-demand basis, to 48 hours notice. Graff says when or if this situation is tabled at a future council meeting, he wants it noted what the local municipalities have been doing to work together to enhance the waterways, and the traffic on it. Graff says that commodore Scott Cameron has been planning this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event since last October. Race boats from Ontario, Quebec, New York State, Michigan and Australia will be escorted from the race site at the Rideau Ferry Yacht Club, to Perth by OPP on the Friday afternoon. They will be on display at the Crystal Palace on Friday at 2 p.m. with welcoming remarks by Mayor John Fenik, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;hopefully, town crier Brent McLaren,â&#x20AC;? says Graff. All of these race boats are in mint condition and are capable of speeds over 100 miles per hour with a few having been clocked at over 150 mph, he says.

Vintage boats will be on display at Crystal Palace on Friday, Aug. 16 as participants in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rideau Ferry Regatta spend some time in Perth prior to the weekend event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year, we are expecting Miss Canada IV which is an unlimited class race boat powered by a Spitfire Rolls Royce aircraft engine,â&#x20AC;? says this hydroplane hobbyist. Graff himself has his own boat, which he says took him a lot of brownie points to be able to keep it for 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I first brought it home, it sure was quiet in the house for a long time,â&#x20AC;? he says with a laugh. Now he says, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glad it seems that these events are becoming more popular with tourists and residents alike and during regatta weekend, many will be on display, here and in Rideau Ferry.

Graff talks about the mid-1950s vintage craft, Miss Canada IV, which was originally owned and driven by Harold and Lorna Wilson. The couple met at the University of Toronto. Their story has been made into a movie as they became international Canadian celebrities for their racing success in North America, he says. The boat has been completely restored by the new owner Canadian Industrialist Bobby Genevese. It was clocked at over 200 miles per hour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to have this boat, along with sea fleas and canoes on display as well,â&#x20AC;? he says. Added fun will be a cardboard boat race this

year, and a canoe building event. Already Perth will be one of the participating municipalities, as will the Youth Action Kommittee (YAK). The six-hour boat building competition will have teams of four people construct a 14-foot canoe on Saturday and race it Sunday. There will also be free toy boat shelter for children to build and paint their own little boats. Perth has had a long history of being involved with the Rideau Ferry Regatta and boat racing with local names such as Cavanaugh, Ramsey, Burchell, Johnson, Cullen, Noonan, Cavers, Yorke, Hall and Perkins, to name a few. In its off year, the regatta is held in Clayton, N.Y. and members of the local committee help their friends across the border with public relations and marketing. When Ontario hosts, those in Clayton do the same in return. Perth now has the McLean Trophy (regatta cup) on display at the town hall for anyone who would like to have a look. According to the Rideau Ferry Yacht Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, vintage race boat regattas are the fastest growing boating events within the American Power Boat Association, and now the Canadian Boating Federation has joined in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the tremendous return of Vintage Race Boats at Rideau Ferry in 2007, the interest of this sport north of the boarder has taken off as fast as the race boats themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2009, the Canadian Boating Federation created a Vintage Race Boat Division, ensuring the future of these beautiful Vintage Race Boats within Canada stays strong and alive for future generations to enjoy.â&#x20AC;? To access the venue, and spend the day at the beach, bring your lawn chair, and enjoy a beautiful day at the Rideau Valley Conservation Area in Rideau Ferry. For more information, visit www.rfyc.ca

Former Bears all-star defenceman re-signs with Senators for two years By STAFF

Sports – Mark Borowiecki’s steady rise through the ranks of the Ottawa Senators will continue. The former Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears all-star defenceman, who has played the bulk of his professional hockey career with the National Hockey League club’s American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate in Binghamton, N.Y., re-signed with the organization for two years, the Ottawa Senators announced last Wednesday (July 10). According to the club, year one is a two-way contract while the second year (2014-15) is a one-way deal meaning he will get his full salary whether he plays in the NHL or AHL. The 23-year-old Kanata native played in six NHL games with Ottawa in 2012-13, recording 18 penalty minutes and a plus-one rating. The hardworking blueliner also scored four goals and added 10 assists along with 157 penalty minutes and a plus-21 rating in 53 games with Binghamton last season. He served as the B-Sens captain from April

8 through the remainder of the regular season and playoffs. Borowiecki was a stand-out on the Smiths Falls blue line during his two seasons with the Bears (2006-2008), winning the CJHL Defenceman of the Year honours his final year. After being picked by the Senators in the fifth round (139th overall) in the 2008 NHL draft in Ottawa, he went on to a solid three-year collegiate career at Clarkson University. He signed an entry level contract in the spring of 2011 and joined the B-Sens in time for their Calder Cup championship run. Borowiecki has been held scoreless in eight career NHL games, while he has registered nine goals, 27 assists and 290 penalty minutes over 135 career regular-season AHL games (all with Binghamton). The first Ottawa native ever drafted by the Senators participated in the team’s summer development camp on five occasions, and was named “hardest working player” for the 2011 and 2012 camps.

Saltos to head Vegas for national competition By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Sports – Six young women of the Saltos Gymnastics Club in Perth are Vegas bound at the end of the month to take part in a national aerobic gymnastics competition. From July 28 to Aug. 3, the team will represent Canada at the Association of National Aerobic Championship. “I’m a little nervous,” says Grace Lockett, the youngest gymnast, during practice this week. She’s just nine, but has been competing since she was a wee lass. Her mom, Louise Miller is the team’s coach. “She’s a gym rat,” Miller says with a laugh. “She’s been here since she was a baby and the girls are all great with her. Grace will be the youngest member ever to represent Canada at a national competition.” The rest of the team members are at least three years older than young Grace, who is a student at Lombardy Public School, heading into Grade 4. Tessa O’Collin of Lombardy is a St. John Catholic High School student in Perth. She’s 12 and this is her second trip to the nationals. “It’s awesome to be able to go,” she says. Chloe Lynn, 15 of Westport, has been in gymnastics for six years. She attends Rideau District High School and this is also her second time to the nationals. Kailey Sweeney, 14, of Almonte, attends Almonte District High School. She’s been involved with gymnastics for 11 years and this will be her

fifth competition – internationally, she’s also been to Brazil and France for the Pan Am Games. Hannah Adrain, 15, of Perth, goes to Perth and District Collegiate Institute. She’s a six-year gymnast who will be attending her second national competition. Alli Tolgyesi, 16, is also from Almonte. She’s another veteran of the group who has attended Pan Am competitions as well as national ones – five in total. At nationals last year, the Saltos team had some good numbers. “We had a great showing at nationals (last year), with top 10 finishes across the board,” says Miller. The girls will compete in six individual competitions with the oldest trio doing a team routine. They say they are excited to head to Vegas. “I can’t wait to go swimming,” says Grace. They’ll be staying at the Red Rock Resort. The girls have done some major fundraising throughout the season as some $1,500 is needed per athlete for this competition. But it’s not over yet. Once they return from Las Vegas they will be jumping into fundraising for their next challenge, the Pan Am Games, which are in Chili this year at the end of October. “If we can raise the money ($2,400 each), we hope to be able to go to the PanAm Games,” Miller says. Watch for more information on one of their fundraising ventures, a night at the races, when they head to the Rideau Carleton Raceway for an evening of entertainment.

Clean-up allows twilight event to roll on By THE BOGEYMAN

Sports - Thanks to the fast clean up by Kenny and his crew following a very destructive microburst that hit the club Wednesday evening, the July 11 edition of the Thursday Night Men’s Twilight went off without a hitch. RBC and Mike Fair Chevrolet Cadillac teamed up as the night’s sponsors offering their own storm of prizes, something the Twilight patrons were more than happy to clean up in the three-man scramble format. The Kenny Campbell, Paul Vaillancourt, and John Tobin team went real low on the front side, winning the A Division with an impressive score of 30! Paul Cadeau and the Devonshires (sounds like a ’50s rock band) took the B Division title with a 32. On the back side, Mike Milks, Mike Whitby, and their imaginary friend (probably named Mike) posted the A Division winning score of 32. We’re not sure which of the three drove home. Dave and Jim Kayser were also mathematically challenged but hoisted the B Division trophy despite their disability. They also shot 32. The Roosteraunt closest-to-the-pin prizes went to Cam “Champ” Burchill and Bill Arnold for their darts on holes 3 and 18.

George Francis and Jim Kayser hit their approach shots tight on holes 5 and 17; they took home the Burns Jewellers gift certificates. The Town and Country Chrysler longest drives were struck by Dave McKenney and Tye Vaillancourt on holes 6 and 10. The James Furniture longest putts were drained by Warren Garton and Mike Milks on holes 4 and 12. Doug Henderson was the lucky 50/50 prize winner, and Jim Kayser took home the bottle of Rocky’s Extra Hole Elixir. Thanks to RBC and Mike Fair for a great prize table, and to the hard-working crew at SFG&CC for getting the course ready for another great night of golf. See you next week. Last week’s Obsessed With Golf trivia question: Which nickname was never assigned to Ben Hogan? Answer: D. Man of Granite.

Renegade Bass tournament hits shores of Big Rideau Lake By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Sports – Anglers of the Renegade Bass tournament series will be on the Big Rideau this weekend, and along with it, comes the eighth annual kids’ fishing derby, Sunday. “It’s so important that we pass on the legacy of enjoying fishing and the outdoors to our children,” says Matt Massey of Carleton Place, public relations for the Renegade series as well as a big tournament fishing enthusiast himself. “That’s why Renegade Bass has been hosting this tournament. It’s a chance to instill that legacy, and each child who participates will get a great prize.” Little anglers, up to age 16, are encouraged to take part in the derby, which hits the shores of the Big Rideau from Coutts Bay in Rideau Ferry on Sunday, July 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the harbour. Participants are asked to bring their own equipment – worms will be provided. Tournament series This is the third and fourth

independent tournaments of the multi-pronged professional series for Renegade Bass with the top earners getting a berth to the Canadian Classic Sept. 7 and 8. The location will be known after this weekend. “There are three possible places it could be held,” Massey says. “It could be Lake St. Francis, Newboro or the Mississippi. There will be a draw for it.” On Saturday morning, 7 a.m., 73 high-end bass boats, led by local favourites Lenny Devos and Jeff Desloges, will launch from the Rideau Ferry Marine on Big Rideau Lake. The tournament utilizes a trickle start, rather than the more dramatic blast-off to ensure maximum safety for both anglers and spectators. The anglers will then filter across the lake to compete for nine hours, vying for $5,000 in prizes each day. “The communities of Perth and Smiths Falls and surrounding area are very welcoming to our anglers, which is why we love coming to

fish the Big Rideau,” says Mike Vandenberg, president of Renegade Bass. “Spectators can come down to the Rideau Marine by boat or car to watch the weigh-in on both Saturday and Sunday beginning at 4 p.m. and see just how amazing a fishery there is on the Big Rideau Lake. It’s also quite a sight to see over $3 million worth of bass boats on the water and a chance to talk to the competitors about how to be a better angler and catch more fish.” Trial and error Massey says he’s learning to fish by trial and error. In his early 30s, he recognized he wanted to enjoy the outdoors more, and decided to buy a bass boat – “for a better life/work balance.” After that, he decided he wanted to fish in tournaments where, he says, he got his butt handed to him for a few years. “Finally, I started to figure things out a little bit and became more competitive,” he says. How did he do that?

Time on the water, he says. “The more time you spend out there, the more time you have to figure things out. And the more experience under your belt allows you to pull apart a body of water quicker and understand what’s going on, on the body of water.” After spending last weekend on the Big Rideau, he says he has slowly put together a game plan for the tournament weekend. He’s coming up in the ranks and is sitting at the 22 spot on the roster after finishing 35th after the St. Lawrence stop. After each qualifying tournament, a total of purse in excess of $17,500, coupled with rewards offered by sponsors, has allowed Renegade Bass to attract some of the best bass anglers in Ontario and Quebec, including Bob Izumi (host of the Real Fishing Show), Reno Viola; Mike Desforges, Carl Roy and Eric Clement and Massey himself, who is the co-host of Fall Brawl TV Participants in last year’s Kids Derby, hosted by Renon Canada’s Hunting and Fishing egade Bass, get a look at some of the prizes available Channel. for all who take part. The derby is slated for Sunday

at the marina, 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. at the harbour off Coutts Bay Road.

Swamp Dashers to hit soapy luge hill By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Sports – Let’s go play in the swamp. Launching a new and exciting race in eastern Ontario, organizers of the everpopular Perth Kilt Run are now taking it to the swamp. On Aug. 24, the inaugural Swamp Dash will take place at Providence Point in Lanark. “We are supporting two great organizations with the event,” says Jeannett Bosman, owner of Providence Point. “Camp Quality and a new program, the Perth Enrichment Program, which is for those dealing with Alzheimer’s.” It will showcase both Providence

Point and the beautiful 17 hectares (43 acres) it sits on and the new timing equipment that has been in use with the Kilt Run, which is organized by the Running Goat Club. The Swamp Dash is a Swamp Ogre Run and a team challenge triathlon like no other. It features a 5-km canoe race on the Clyde River, a 30-plus km cycle through Lanark Highlands, and to finish it off a unique and grueling 6-km Swamp Ogre Run in and around Providence Point. “Ingenuity, strategy, and strength are needed to complete these races, which can be done as teams,” says Bosman. The Swamp Ogre Run is a stand

On Saturday one can expect live entertainment, the Live Ogre Run, and Team Challenge Triathlon with a steak barbecue and awards and even some Lanark County maple syrup. The cost to enter is $160 for the Swamp Ogre Run, or $120 for the Swamp Dash.

Sports - On Saturday, July 6, 14 warriors from Zendragon, Smiths Falls, took part in the Tough Mudder challenge in Montreal. Perhaps one of the toughest physical, mental and emotional challenges, the event boasted more than 16 kilometres of muddy terrain, blazing sun and 18 jaw-dropping obstacles. It is a make or break competition. The challenge included the greased monkey bars, crawling and running through live electrical wires,

swimming through ice water, drops of doom, underground tunnels and much more. The Zendragon Mudder Lovers persevered and crossed the finish line as a team. They were tired, scraped, cut, bruised, burnt, hungry, thirsty, but happy little mudders. Several members are already eyeing the next Tough Mudder event taking place this September in Toronto.

Leacock Tours retirement party raises more than $2,000 for Canadian Cancer Society By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC News – More than 300 clients, supporters and family members gathered June 29 to wish Mary Lou Leacock a happy retirement and show their generosity towards the Canadian Cancer Society. Leacock held a retirement party at the Toledo Royal Canadian Legion, which featured music, courtesy of Dennis Whitteker and his band, This Old Heart and Country Music, as well as dancing. Leacock recently closed her Jasper business, Leacock Tours, after 40 years in operation, offering people group air and bus trips to destinations around the world. Failing eyesight and recent cancer surgery forced the 87-year-old to close up shop. Friend Norine Morrison decorated the legion hall and arranged a special memory room, complete with photo and guest books and mementos from Leacock’s countless trips, for guests to peruse. The 30 albums stretched from 1973, when the business was established, all the way up to 2013 (with photos from everywhere from China, Africa, all over Europe, Australia and local trips, Leacock said). Shirley MacDonald prepared two large, decorated cakes for the occasion and a luncheon was also served to visitors. Daughter Eleanor Renaud, a councillor with the Township of ElizabethtownKitley, took the opportunity to present her mother with a certificate of achievement for 40 years in business on behalf of the municipality. Leacock was pleased to see so many former clients, friends and colleagues attend the party, including Frank Healey, owner of Healey Transportation. “We have done a lot of business over the years and his mom (Donna) Throughout the afternoon event, was the one that really encouraged me when I started (my business),” those who dropped in also made several Leacock said. “I was really pleased donations to the cancer society, which amounted to $2,359.65 raised.

Clark proud of Ontario PC plan to fight hunger with local food EMC News – Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark is welcoming a PC Caucus amendment to the Local Food Act that would provide a tax credit to farmers who donate their products to their local food bank. Clark was at a Queen’s Park press conference recently where it was announced the PCs are putting forward the amendment, modeled on SarniaLambton MPP Bob Bailey’s private member’s bill Fighting Hunger with Local Food Act. MPP Bailey made the announcement along with Ontario PC Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Critic Ernie Hardeman (Oxford). “The agricultural community and food banks in Leeds-Grenville have been strong supporters of this tax credit, which will ensure local families have better access to fresh, highquality Ontario food,” said Clark. “I’m pleased that we’ve brought this amendment forward and I’m hopeful the government will support it because it will make a big difference to families in my riding and across Ontario.” The proposed amendment would grant a non-refundable tax credit worth 25 per cent of the wholesale value to farmers who choose to donate their excess agricultural products to local food banks. It would also allow unused tax credits to be carried forward for up to five years. Clark noted while food banks are struggling to meet demand, every year in Ontario some 25 million pounds of fresh, quality produce is ploughed back into fields by farmers. Often, the produce was rejected by grocers for

cosmetic reasons such as size, shape or colour. “Farmers have no other option than to plough it under because of the cost involved in collecting, processing and delivering it to a food bank,” explained Clark. “Our proposed amendment to the Local Food Act would change that scenario by making use of this nutritious produce.” Among the local food banks that have expressed support for MPP Bailey’s private member’s bill is Food For All, which serves South Grenville residents. In a letter to MPP Bailey, Food For All executive director Bonnie Gommert wrote: “On behalf of the Food For All Food Bank, we would like to thank you for your efforts in introducing Fighting Hunger with Local Food.” The tax credit amendment is one of the proposed improvements the Ontario PC Caucus has brought forward to strengthen the government’s Local Food Act. Earlier this year, Clark welcomed an amendment to increase food literacy among Ontarians by requiring food education as a mandatory component of instruction for pupils in every grade. “Local food is an important issue for consumers and producers in Leeds-Grenville,” said Clark. “I’m determined to ensure the Local Food Act is comprehensive enough to fix the problems farmers and our food sector face in putting more local food on people’s plates.” Submitted by the office of LeedsGrenville MPP Steve Clark.

But my technician said it would be covered an oil leak for example. To understand how this relatively simply request can go off the rails, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s necessary to take a look behind the scenes. First, some dealership service personnel take it personally when a customer opts to have their routine maintenance work done by another garage, and no matter how professional or experienced they are, these feelings can ruin the broth of a client transaction. Some of you may remember how comedian Jerry Seinfeld made this look very funny in the episode where his technician kidnapped Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car after he questioned an estimate and wanted to take it to another shop for a second opinion. Secondly some independent technicians may not be completely conversant in a particular carmakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warranty terms. For example, suspension or steering joints may exhibit play or looseness, but may be within the manufacturerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s specs and therefore not a warrantable repair. Some warranties require a physical oil leak or drip to exist before repairs are authorized and a damp gasket or some fluid â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sweatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t considered reason for action. Misunderstandings like this can escalate to arguments when a dealership completes an inspection, cannot find a warrantable condition, and then presents their customer with an invoice for the technicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time. But any auto

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

manufacturer will tell you that regardless of where a vehicle is serviced, the warranty, as outlined in the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handbook, still applies. So to make things easier for everyone, here are a few tips when dealing with this situation. â&#x20AC;˘ If your independent tech brings something to your attention that he or she thinks may be covered under a manufacturer warranty or recall, get some specifics. If something is loose: how loose is it? Which specific component? If something is causing a noise: why? If something is leaking: which fluid? Is it dripping or just sweating? Ask for a written report to eliminate the risk of forgetting something or referring to the wrong side or end of the vehicle when returning to your dealership service counter. â&#x20AC;˘ When communicating with your dealership, provide as much information as possible. For example, rather than ask them to diagnose a noise, tell them your private technician has identified a fault with component â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or part â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Ask them up front what their policy is for inspections that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lead to a warrantable repair.

Whether or not you choose to risk your money (on inspection charges) depends on how much you trust the opinion of your own tech. Some inspections require little time (and therefore small fees) whereas some jobs may involve multiple road-tests and/ or special equipment and at city shop rates that exceed $100/hour; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to know where you stand before things get started. â&#x20AC;˘ Dealers get paid by their manufacturers to complete warranty repairs and in some cases they are reimbursed at their retail labour rate with a healthy mark-up allowed on parts. Some techs may complain that the time allowances carmakers list for certain jobs are rather thin, but overall, completing warranty repairs is a profitable business for the retailer. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@hotmail. com listing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Question for the Car Counselorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, ON K7A 4T1]. When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always promise replies).

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A common situation that arises at dealership service/parts counters every day has a variety of approaches and the results can vary from great to dismal, depending on how things are communicated and unlike the old adage: a little knowledge can be a very good thing. Many vehicle owners are happy to have their vehicles serviced by their authorized dealerships and some prefer to stick with an independent garage or national/ regional chain for reasons of trust, price, comfort and convenience to name a few. A good service provider, regardless of the shingle hanging at their front door, will always do their best to ensure their customers have worry-free driving. To this end itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a common practice for technicians to perform a general inspection anytime a vehicle is in for routine maintenance in order to spot and bring to the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention, anything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amiss and requires attention. On newer vehicles, good service consultants will always keep in mind the vehicle manufacturer warranty as it may cover the costs of parts and labour for a particular repair or replacement due to a warrantable defect in workmanship or materials. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon for a vehicle owner to end up at his or her dealershipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service desk with a recommendation from an independent garage to replace a tie rod end, or repair

Be mindful of your pet’s condition during hot and humid weather By LORI CLARKSON

EMC Lifestyle – We have certainly found the “Dog days of summer” with all this heat and humidity! It’s a great time of the year in Lanark County and hopefully everyone is having a safe and happy summer so far. More hot and humid weather is expected in the region over the next couple of days. When the sun is shining it may be tempting to get out for some summer fun with your pet but the risk of heatstroke is a real danger everyone should be aware of. Many people are already aware that the car can be a very dangerous place if a pet is left alone for even a very short period of time. Less obvious are the dangers of overexertion during hot, and particularly, humid weather. Dogs don’t sweat like humans do. The main way they cool down is by panting which isn’t the easiest way to cool off in the first place, and it is much more difficult in humid weather, as there is very little evaporation. On a hot day, the time between having fun and heatstroke can be very short. The time is even shorter in the high humidity. The activity doesn’t have to be strenuous either since dogs just aren’t built to cool off like humans are. Heatstroke can happen much quicker than expected, especially for the “flat-faced, short-nosed” breeds such as Bulldogs, Pugs, and Pekingese which are called brachycephalic breeds. They are most at risk for heatstroke from high temperatures and overexertion due to their anatomy which can impede air flow and reduce the effectiveness of panting even more. And don’t assume that your pet will know when to slow down; by the time they finally do stop to lay down, it may be because they physically can’t go on any more. Watch your pet for signs of tiring and too much panting. The panting tongue out too far will indicate break time. The same advice for humans applies to pets as well; exercise in the early morning and late

Can’t beat giant robots battling giant monsters on big screen MOVIE: Pacific Rim STARRING: Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, and Ron Pearlman DIRECTOR: Guillermo del Toro EMC Entertainment - Pacific Rim could have used the silliest, most farfetched premise imaginable, and I still would have watched it. I would have watched it because it has giant robots fighting giant monsters, and giant robots fighting giant monsters is awesome. Though it seems completely unnecessary there is a plot. Giant alien monsters called kaiju start coming out of an inter-dimensional breech in the Pacific Ocean. The first takes six days to kill and destroy three cities. The world then bands together, and builds giant robots called jaegers to fight them. The jaegers are incredible war machines, but due to their sheer size and complexity it takes two pilots with their minds linked to operate them. The war rages for years, and the jaegers seem to turn the tide, but the kaiju kept coming. They get bigger, stronger, and more dangerous. Then they start to come through the breech more frequently, and begin to overwhelm the jaegers. Now the last four jaegers are going to make one last run to try and close

My Take MARK HASKINS

the breech. The problem is one of the jaegers, Gypsy Danger, needs a pilot. Marshal Pentecost (Idris Elba), the man in charge of the jaegers, knows just the guy. Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) was one of the original pilots of Gypsy Danger along with his brother. Then his brother was killed in action, and Raleigh walked away from the program. With the fate of the world in the balance Raleigh agrees to go back, but without his brother he has to train a new partner. Enter Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi). She’s skilled, eager and a perfect match for Raleigh. She’s also never been in a real jaeger, and has her own emotional issues. Who said saving the world would be easy? I can’t be believe they bothered with as much story and character development as they did. I get it. Your character has deep emotional scars, and is highly motivated to kill kaiju. I just don’t care. I want less talk and more giant robot-fighting-giant-mon-

ster action. After all the giant robot fighting giant monster action is awesome. These effects are worth seeing, and worth seeing on the big screen. They were so mind blowing I didn’t mind overlooking the film’s weak (and occasionally wrong) attempts at explaining plot points with ‘science’. I actually like the cast. Charlie Hun-

nam and Rinko Kikuchi have good chemistry, do some cool martial arts, and look like they know how to pilot a giant robot. Idris Elba is a fantastic actor and just the person to deliver the obligatory inspirational speech. Charlie Day and Burn Gorman play the token scientists and provide quality comic relief along with Ron Pearl-

man who’s outstanding as underworld kingpin Hannibal Chau. Pacific Rim is what summer blockbusters are all about. Massive spectacles with jaw dropping effects, larger than life story lines, and giant robots fighting giant monsters. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Emergency Preparedness Shelter in Place “Shelter-in-place” means to take immediate shelter where you are—at home, work, school, or in between. It may also mean “seal the room;” in other words, take steps to prevent outside air from coming in. This is because local authorities may instruct you to “shelter-in-place” if chemical or radiological contaminants are released into the environment. It is important to listen to TV or radio to understand whether the authorities wish you to merely remain indoors or to take additional steps to protect yourself and your family. Close and lock all windows and exterior doors. If there’s a danger of an explosion, close all windows, covering (shades, blinds, curtains etc.), turn off all fans, close vents for heating and air conditioning systems and fire places.

EMC Lifestyle – James Dean drove a black 1949 Mercury coupe with wide whitewalls, dual exhausts and fender skirts in the Hollywood classic, “Rebel Without a Cause.” Ever since that movie was released in 1954, the 1949-51 Mercurys have probably been customized more than any other make or model, with many of them rendered identical to the one driven by James Dean. A more recent movie, “Cars,” inspired the transformation of the 1949 Mercury coupe owned by Dale McNinch of Tillsonburg, Ont. He writes: “Hi Bill, I was looking through a copy of the ‘Old Car Trader’ in 1983. In it was advertised a 1949 Mercury coupe for $500. I called Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and talked with the man who owned it. “He said: ‘I go farm to farm buying scrap. At this one farm, they asked if I take whole cars. I said yes and they took me to the barn. In it was this 1949 Mercury. The kids had been jumping off the hay mow onto the roof. It had 1962 Saskatchewan plates. They also gave me a 1951 Merc front end with rounded hood corners and frenched headlights.’ “We made a deal and I sent him $500. Two weeks later, I had extra holiday time so I took my 12-yearold son in our 1969 Blazer and a rented trailer.

South East CCAC celebrates year of connecting people with care EMC News – The South East Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) celebrated another year of connecting people with the care they need and announced the new board of directors for 2013/14 at its annual general meeting on June 26. The board of directors for 2013/14 are: David Vigar (chair), Wendy Cuthbert (vice-chair), Stan Collins (treasurer), Deanna Dulmage (secretary), Carole Weir, Marion Hughes and the board welcomes new member, Francyne St-Pierre Givogue. In 2012/2013, South East CCAC provided care to more than 33,410 people including: 20,889 patients receiving care at

home; 14,481 seniors who were supported to stay in their homes independently; and 3,451 children receiving health services at school. Getting people the care they need at home and in the community, the South East CCAC helped more than 1,242 seniors transition to a long-term care home; worked in hospital inpatient and emergency departments across the region to help 12,071 people return home from hospital with home care; and provided 663 more patients with personal support, and 100,248 more hours of personal support than the previous year. “Not only are we coordinat-

ing care for more people, we are also seeing an increase in patients with high needs” said Jacqueline Redmond, chief executive officer of the South East CCAC. “Caring for more people with high care needs requires increased collaboration across the health system and CCACs play a key role in creating a better aligned health system. We look forward to continuing to work with all sectors of the local health care system to provide outstanding care to every person, every day.” Thanks to sound financial management principles, the South East CCAC balanced its $109 million budget with a

small surplus. “I have a deep gratitude for the work of the South East CCAC,” said outgoing board member Beverley Townsend. “Every day there is a huge corps of people who support more than 12,500 individuals to remain in their homes under the guidance of the CCAC care coordinators. The CCAC has a relatively small number of staff reaching many people in the community and helping many people navigate the health system. We get a huge value for the dollars invested.” To view a copy of the 2012/13 annual report and the audited financial statements, visit the South East CCAC website at

Land claim agreement will articulate Algonquins’ harvesting rights By ROBERT POTTS

EMC Lifestyle – The following is part of a series, provided by the Algonquins of Ontario. Since time immemorial, harvesting has been central to the Algonquin way of life. The Algonquin traditional practices of hunting, trapping, fishing and gathering flora for medicinal, food and other purposes, reflect the history of Algonquins as a hunting and gathering society. These practices embody an inherent respect for the environment and a fundamental commitment to the sustainable management of resources which has been passed from generation to generation. The right of Aboriginal peoples in Canada to engage in traditional activities that are fundamental to their unique histories, cultures and spiritual beliefs is recognized by the Constitution Act, 1982 and upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada. Under this

legal framework, the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) currently possess the right to harvest wildlife, fish, migratory birds and plants for domestic purposes 365 days per year. This right is subject only to measures necessary for conservation and public health and safety. As such, a final treaty will not create Aboriginal rights for the AOO but rather, it will clearly articulate what these rights are and how they may be exercised. As stewards of the land and resources within their traditional territory, the AOO recognize the fundamental importance of protecting viable populations of flora and fauna for generations to come. Since 1991, the AOO have pioneered ground-breaking harvest management plans for moose in Algonquin Park and wildlife management units surrounding the park. These plans contain clear provisions which set out when and where the harvest by Algonquin harvesters can occur, what the to-

Robert Potts

tal harvest is to be and who is eligible to participate through a tag system. Harvest limits for moose and elk are established in cooperation with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), based on data that addresses wildlife conservation and the sustainability of wildlife populations. The AOO is the first Aboriginal group in Canada that has voluntarily enacted these types of harvest management practices. Over the last decade the AOO, working in partnership with the MNR have become important players in moose aerial inventory surveys in Algonquin Park. This involvement expanded to elk aerial inventories beginning in early 2012. The AOO continue to work with the MNR to develop a coordinated approach to enable the effective participation of the Algonquins in the collection of data relating to fish and other wildlife across the territory. To date, the data collected for both

moose and elk have assisted in the development of the AOO annual harvest management plans. The AOO recognize that sustainable harvests are fundamental not only to the Algonquin way of life but also to our neighbours living throughout our traditional territory. As demonstrated over the past 20 years, the AOO are committed to working together to ensure the protection of viable populations of fish and wildlife for future generations. This column is the fourth in a series providing insights into Algonquin history, the foundation for the land claim, elements of the preliminary draft AIP and next steps in the journey. The next column will focus on the forestry component of the preliminary draft AIP. For more information visit www. tanakiwin.com.

Hyosung motorcycles have had success since launch style race-inspired bikes and the performance cruiser ST7 models. My tester from Dan Witmer of GearHead Canada was the GT250R. This red and white faring clad pocket-something, looked great in its stance and provided an adequate seat height of 32” that provided easy swing over even for an aging test pilot. In mono-coloured trim, the GT250R carries an MSRP of just $4,200; my two-toned version is only $200 more. If you want the bones without skin, a ‘naked’ version of the GT250R is available in three solid colour choices for just $3,799 (all prices before destination charges, dealer prep, license fees, and tax). As the moniker suggests, power for the GT250R comes from an air/oil cooled 250 cc twin breathing through eight valves on a dual-over-head-cam. The fuel injection system removes the need for a choke and annoying fast idle warm-ups. A five-speed transmission transfers the 30 hp via a chain to a rear 17” tire. Stopping performance is strong and comes from a three-disc system using twin-piston 300 mm calipers on the front and a 230 mm unit on the rear. Front suspension is comprised of 43mm inverted forks and the rear uses a swing arm with a progressive linkage shock that’s preload adjustable. The front tire is a 110/70-17 and the rear is 150/70-17. The GT250R propelled my 230 lb mass without much complaint and shifts were solid and powered well by a wide torque-band. A slight stiffness to the steering and pegs I put down to being the first rider on this machine out of the

Auto Know BRIAN TURNER

box. Even with the low position handlebars, and my lack of experience with this stance, signal and lamp controls, along with brake and clutch levers (which are adjustable) were easy to operate. A three-position foot-peg set-up, along with the adjustable levers will permit a

wide range of riders to find just the right position for comfortable yet spirited rides. The GT250R definitely won’t give many mid-displacement bikes a scare, but it provides a great balance between a solid commuter and weekend freedom bike. For those not seeking a race-inspired riding position the less dressed GT250 has a different set of handlebars that permits a more upright stance. Instrumentation includes a digital inset for fuel, temp, and trip distance with an adjustable brightness feature. Hyosung provides a full one-year parts and labor warranty with a second year for parts only. The GT250R is rated at 78 mpg and

17 L fuel tank provides plenty of range. I found the GT250R supplied confidence by means of the ease of operation in a ride on a busy Ottawa Saturday morning route. The mirrors need to provide a slightly wider range and the seat bottom definitely could use a little more padding. With the ease of cold starts and the nimbleness that a compact-framed bike provides in urban settings at a price point lower than any of the competitions’ MSRP’s, Hyosung might be your first or next ride. Yours in service Brian Turner

EMC Lifestyle – The bikes and vehicles I road test for these reviews (yes, it’s a tough job, but I’m willing to make sacrifices), come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian head offices of the manufacturers and local retailers. I prefer to use retailers whenever possible because they stock units that more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higher-end models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out the manufacturers’ websites or better yet, call your local retailer and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. It’s the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The Hyosung 250GTR motorcycle I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at GearHead Canada in Bells Corners, Ottawa. Hyosung motorcycles have had just as much success since their launch in Canada as every other Korean vehicle importer. They were established in the late ‘70s and quickly developed a technology cooperation agreement with Suzuki. They grew from there and never looked back. They entered the North American market in 2005 marketing mid-level equipped bikes at entry level prices (a practice they continue with today). They started in Canada with cruiser-style machines, low on displacement but high on riding value. These bikes have evolved to the GV250 and GV650 Pro and find themselves equally at home on commutes or weekend get-away lanes. Their line has expanded and now includes GT-

Healthy and safe outdoor eating tips for summertime By MEENA TIPPER

EMC Lifestyle – Summertime is ideal for eating outside, at the beach, in the back yard or a local park. When planning foods for outdoor eating remember that in the summertime many local vegetables and fruit are at their peak and make a wonderful addition to any meal. It is also important to stay hydrated, and use safe food practices. Healthy picnic options Typical prepackaged picnic foods such as hot dogs, mayon-

naise based salads (e.g. potato salad); chips, desserts etc. can be high in saturated fat, sodium and sugar. You can make your picnic healthier by including vegetables, fruit, whole grains and lean meat. Summer picnics occur at the height of the fresh fruit and vegetable season. Here are a few tasty and easy picnic ideas: • Combine salad greens with a variety of other vegetables. Bring vinaigrette dressing to toss before serving. • Serve sliced vegetables and dip. Try locally grown tomatoes, red peppers, radishes,
