News – Police officers aren’t generally described as bashful, but when it comes to their extracurricular achievements they can be very shy people. Three members of the Smiths Falls Police Service returned from the World Police & Fire Games (WPFG) held in Belfast in early August with not one, but 10 medals. Sgt. Jodi Empey, the swimmer, brought home seven medals: one gold, four silver and two bronze; Const. Brent Pellet, the runner, brought home a gold and a silver; while Const. Mike Gallagher, the body builder, who had never competed before, brought home a bronze first time out of the gate. The number of medals is of course related to the number of events they entered as much as it is related to their performance. For the three athletes though it was the entire experience as much as the competition that really mattered. “The people were so nice and kept saying how happy they were to have people come to their country,” said Empey.

The three officers made their way over to Belfast separately and met up there. “I got there two days before my event,” said Gallagher, “I didn’t know what to expect but it was very clean and over the top friendly.” They were amazed that just about the whole city of Belfast, had been turned into an athletes village, with easy access to all the venues. “They included all our transportation in our registration, they didn’t do that at the last games in New York,” said Empey, who needed to take a train to her venue. “It was a very easy city to get around.” The three officers were surprised there weren’t very many Canadians or even Americans represented at the Belfast Games. Most of the competitors were European and Asian. “I met a lot of women like me, that train and are moms and do this job from all over the world and that was important to me,” said Empey, herself a mother of two. For Pellet the best part of the

competition was sharing the whole experience with his parents and having them right there at the finish line. His 10-km race was held on the extensive grounds of Stormont, the site of the Irish Parliament Buildings. “The entire race was run on grass, which was certainly different, and it was a 2.5-km loop so I got to pass my parents, Mike and Jodi several times near the finish line,” said Pellet, who was the only Canadian in the race. Both of Pellet’s events were something of a surprise. His half marathon was held in Cookstown at the same time as the town’s annual marathon. “They were advertising the marathon as ‘Run with the World’, and the other athletes were super friendly and welcoming,” said Pellet. When the Smiths Falls officers weren’t competing they were watching each other’s events or taking in important competitions like the hockey game between Russia and the Toronto Police hockey team. “Russia won that game,” said Pellet, pointing out that some of

the Russian players were professional hockey players who were volunteer firefighters. Meanwhile Gallagher, new to competition and not entirely versed in all the ins and outs of the body building circuit, said he just enjoyed himself. “It was obvious I didn’t know what I was doing, compared to some of the other guys,” he chuckles, “but I had fun with it.” He too found he was the only Canadian and his fiercest competition came from India and Taiwan. He admits he’s hooked now and plans to compete more often in preparation for the 2015 WPFG games in Fairfax, Virginia. While they all tried to take in as much of their surroundings as possible, their time was a bit limited by their competitions certainly Empey who competed in the largest number of events was fairly busy. “We went to Dublin for a couple of days, and it was very different. It was bigger, dirtier, busier and not nearly as friendly as Belfast,” said Empey. “Belfast was just a great experience,” said Empey.

News – The rules have been adopted, the fencing is complete and the Smiths Falls off-leash dog park will have its official opening soon. It’s only taken two years to realize. “I guess I wasn’t surprised at the support because we knew it was what people wanted,” said Jackie Brennan, chair of the committee, who said she is thrilled to have a safe place for her golden doodle to run free and socialize with other dogs. The park has had tremendous support from both residents and the town. “The town donated $10,000 in matching funds to the dog park project,” said Berni Scott, member of the committee. The park located adjacent to the Civitan baseball diamonds at Lower Reach Park is a little more than two acres and can be expanded if the need arises. “We may need to expand, because the current size is similar to other dog parks in towns with comparable populations, but we’ll know better once the park opens,” said Scott. The park sits within a fiveacre parcel of land that had been donated to the Town of Smiths Falls by the Gleeson family. Part of that land however fell within the boundaries of Rideau Lakes Township. “We had to enter into a development agreement with Rideau Lakes and provide them with a site-plan, we also had to apply for rezoning from a Rural designation to Open Space, with an exception because Rideau Lakes didn’t have dog parks listed under open space usage,” said Jay Brennan, council representative on the dog park committee. So far the re-zoning application has received first and second reading and is expected to go to third reading next week. Meanwhile a seven-foot chain link fence installed by Roy Craig

segment on CTV’s Regional Contact, that was rebroadcast a few times, and that’s brought in a lot of new customers, not only to our store, but to Smiths Falls,� adds Brandum.

For Brandum though, some of the real satisfaction comes from how the REAL Deal has touched and helped people, and created local jobs in the environmental field. “We’re very proud

that we have hired from the ranks of our volunteers, and that a number of our volunteers have gained confidence and life and work skills at the REAL Deal and have ‘graduated’ to regular jobs in the community,� she says. The REAL Deal is on Facebook where it regularly posts pictures of new items, its monthly silent auction, special sales and repurposing ideas. The store also keeps a Wish Book, calling customers should their particular item come in. And, it keeps some customer comment books. “Those are so gratifying to read,� says Brandum. “One customer commented that we were ‘busier than Walmart,’ another that she had found her youth here, yet another that the REAL Deal is the best used store in eastern Ontario, and another who found a set of dishes that reminded her of when her children were young – it’s those stories that really touch you.� The REAL Deal Reuse Store is located at 85 William St. W., in Smiths Falls and is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call 613283-7999 to check if they can take your donations or to find out if they have a certain item.

News – The REAL Deal Reuse Store is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a storewide 50 per cent off sale. It’s a way of thanking the thousands of supporters who understand how important it is to keep good stuff out of area landfills – and who have consequently helped the REAL Deal to grow. “Between donors and buyers, we now have 10,000 visits a year,� says Susan Brandum, executive director of the REAL Deal. The REAL Deal is a project of the Rideau Environmental Action League, a 24-year-old environmental charity based in Smiths Falls. The store, which is a social enterprise, receives donated goods from householders and renovators, and sells the goods, putting the proceeds into its other environmental projects. It carries kitchenware, decorative items, art, books, sports and recreation goods, jewelry, collectibles, antiques, furniture, small appliances, lighting, hardware, doors, windows, renovation materials, flooring, bathroom vanities, sinks, gardening supplies, pet supplies, craft materials, cds and kids videos, cards, and numerous other things. With the initial support of Guy Saumure & Sons, REAL launched the REAL Deal seven years ago, in the old Parks Canada building opposite Drummonds Gas. But that building had to be torn down, and the REAL Deal was in limbo for a year until it moved into its current location at 85 William St. West, an old municipal works building no longer used by the Town of Smiths Falls that is opposite the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario. “Just those few years ago, not a lot of people understood what we were about. But that has completely turned around. People get it now. They’re happy to buy used when the item is available, and they’re really happy their old stuff finds a good home. Today, we’re diverting about 35 tonnes each year from area landfills,� says Brandum. In the five years at their current location, they estimate they have diverted about 140 tonnes from landfills. And the REAL Deal has been something of a model for a few area municipalities that have set up their own reuse centres at their dumps. New customers at the REAL Deal often ask why their purchases are weighed before they leave, and why the clerks ask for their municipality. That’s because the operation collects the weights on goods donated, purchased, and sent to its free tables, to other non-profits, to recycling and to garbage, so it can report those numbers to the municipalities that help support it. Those include Smiths Falls, Drummond/North Elmsley and Montague. Those municipalities in turn get a little extra revenue from Waste Diversion Ontario for the diversions. (Experienced customers occasionally remind the clerks to weigh, if, in a rush, the clerk has forgotten!) The REAL Deal has two part-time paid staff, manager Tracy Thomson, who has a particular passion for collectibles and antiques, and assistant Don Harvey. But it would not function without its incredible group of volunteers. On any given day, from four to eight volunteers are busy on cash, receiving, pricing, cleaning and sorting. About half volunteer the full three days the store is open, meaning they put in 18 hours a week. Over the course of a year, about 35 volunteers contribute to the REAL Deal, and put in an impressive total of 4,500 hours. The REAL Deal is also now a tourist

My Town’s Got Talent showcase coming to a high school near you this month Community – It’s September – time once again for My Town’s Got Talent auditions – where we look for the best talent in Lanark County to showcase at the finale. This year, the event will take place in Carleton Place on Oct. 25. Auditions for this year’s show will take place during the last week of September, with the judges stopping from 4 to 9 p.m. at St. John Catholic High School in Perth on Sept. 23; Smith Falls District Collegiate Institute on Sept. 24; Almonte District High School in Mississippi Mills on Sept. 25, and Carleton Place High School on Sept. 26. The goal: to select the 15 semi-finalists for the show. At the finale, presented by Metroland (EMC) and Town and Country Chrysler, along with Lake 88.1, our celebrity judges, with help from fans in the county through an on-line poll, will select the five finalists. Once again, the evening will feature the audience voting for the overall winner from those five finalists. “The finale in Perth last year was outstanding,� according to Christy Bindhardt, artistic director. “We had an incredible variety of talent, from dancers to solo singers to trios to a guitar instrumentalist to a slam poet.� If you can dance, do poetry, drum, do comedy, or are the best entertainer in whatever you do, then we want you out at our auditions! “All of the details for auditioning are on our website,� noted Bindhardt. The website is www.mtgt.org, where you can also see photos of last year’s

show, which was won by Alexander Cox from Carleton Place. In addition to the auditions for performers, there are also two new categories for youth to participate in. “We wanted to give more youth an opportunity to participate, so this year we are having a Host Competition and a Logo Design Competition,� said Bindhardt. “For the hosts, we are looking for actors, comedians, or youth who just love to talk, to try out to be part of the finale event. The semi-finalists in this competition will each host a athird of the first part of the evening, and then the winner will host the exciting final five portion of the night – and again, the audience will vote for the host with the most!� In addition, there will be a contest for the budding designers in Lanark County who think they are able to create a new logo for My Town’s Got Talent. “We have had the same logo for two years, so it is time to create a new one – and what better way than to have the youth of the county design one for us,� said Bindhardt. “The audience will see all five semi-finalists work at the finale, and will select the winner as well. It’s an opportunity for even more youth to become involved in My Town’s Got Talent!� The venue for this year’s Finale show is the Cafetorium of the Carleton Place High School. “Following tradition, we are moving the Finale to another town again,� said show producer Fraser Scantlebury of the United Way, “and this year, it is Carleton Place’s turn to shine on Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. After the excellent

reception we had in Perth last year, and before that for two years in Almonte, we look forward to strong support from the folks in Carleton Place for this year’s show. We will be going all out to make the finale a professional and fun event for everyone – both the contestants and the audience.� “Once again, this year’s event will feature the ability for fans to vote for their favorite act by donating online to the United Way Lanark County,� continued Scantlebury. “These votes will be combined with the judges’ choices to select the five finalists, who will then perform once more for the audience, who will then vote for the winner. Audience members receive one ballot each, and when the five performances are over, we count up the votes immediately to see who wins. It’s a fun-filled, action packed night, where fifteen hopefuls battle it out to be in the final five, and then go on to try and bring back the title of best in Lanark County to their hometown!� As in previous years, the event is in support of the United Way Lanark County annual fall campaign. All donations at the door for the finale will go towards the United Way’s youth initiatives in Lanark County, supporting the United Way’s five youth centre member agencies. “This is an excellent opportunity for the county to see what our youth member agencies do for the young people in their communities,� noted Johann Ramsaran, chair of the board of the United Way Lanark County. “All five – Carleton Place Youth Centre, Lanark Highlands Youth Centre, YAK Youth Centre

SMITHS FALLS KINSMEN in conjunction with ‌

in Perth, Smiths Falls and District Youth Centre, and Take Young People Seriously (TYPS) Youth Centre from Mississippi Mills – will be helping out at the auditions and the final show. At the finale, community members will have the opportunity to meet youth from each centre, and learn about what their local youth centre is doing in their community.� An event such as My Town’s Got Talent takes the generous support of the community, and the United Way would welcome any local businesses or organizations that want to help out and

sponsor the finale. Please contact Emily Danaher, fund development officer, at the United Way Lanark County office (613-253-9074) for further details. “Once again, it’s now up to the youth of the County to come forward and sign up for the auditions,� said Bindhardt. “We have the judges getting ready – and we want to see the best in the county at the auditions. Just go to www.mtgt.org for all the details, or contact the United Way at 613-253-9074, and we will see you there!� Submitted by the United Way of Lanark County.

Runciman to post detailed expense reports on website News – Senator Bob Runciman announced recently he will soon start posting his expenses on his website. “The Senate, as an unelected body, should set the gold standard for public access to spending practices,� Runciman said. “I will post details of spending for travel, hospitality, expenses while in Ottawa for Senate sittings, and other details of my office and research budget.� Runciman said he will follow the lead of Senator Doug Black, of Alberta, who earlier this year became the first member of the Senate to post detailed expenses on his website. Black made accountability a major plank in his 2012 election campaign for the Alberta Senate seat. “I’ve always believed we have an obligation as Senators to be as transparent

as possible, and recent news about Senate spending has only reinforced that belief,� Runciman said. “This is taxpayers’ money and they have a right to know how we’re spending it.� Runciman noted that he was part of the Mike Harris cabinet that implemented the sunshine list in Ontario, requiring the annual disclosure of salaries above $100,000 in the province’s broader public sector. “I think that’s the type of transparency that the public wants, and deserves,� he said. Runciman said he hopes to have the reporting system up and running, with details posted at www.bobrunciman. com, before the Senate resumes sitting this fall.

REGIONAL NEWS

Hope 4 Hope to host ball tournament Sept. 21-22, benefit dance Oct. 12 Community – Hope 4 Hope is a group of family and friends who have rallied together to raise money for a dear family member and a dear friend. Last year, Hope (Wilkinson) Healey, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After a 12hour surgery, she was told she was cancer free. She continued to be sick for a while, but then began to feel better. Unfortunately, the cancer is back and doctors have told her there is nothing more they can do for her. Hope 4 Hope understands all of the unique challenges Hope and her family are and will be facing. Our goal is to fundraise to be able to provide Hope with some comfort and peace of mind knowing that there is and will be some sort of financial assistance from all the en-

deavours of her family and friends. Beginning in July this year, Hope’s mother and aunts held an online auction with proceeds used to send Hope and husband Joe to Niagara Falls for a well-deserved peaceful and private get away. While visiting Niagara Falls, Hope and Joe were overjoyed with all the generosity, kindness and support they received. Since then Hope 4 Hope has had a yard sale and is continuing with selling of Hope 4 Hope wrist bands. We also received an incredible offer from Walmart (Smiths Falls) to allow us to sell wristbands and have an ‘In Kindness’ donation jar. Walmart (Smiths Falls) has generously offered to match all money collected dollar for dollar. Upcoming events are a Mixed

Slo-Pitch Ball Tournament and a benefit dance. The ball tournament will be hosting 12 teams in Lanark on Sept. 21 and 22. Once again tremendous support and hard work by organizers will be raising support and funds for Hope. The tournament has received donations of some equipment for the tournament. Organizers Dan Wilkinson and Julie Nagle continue to collect donations for raffle items and will also be selling wristbands to help cover costs of barbecue items. All of the proceeds of the tournament are going to Hope 4 Hope. Also coming up on Saturday, Oct. 12 is a benefit dance which will be held at Smiths Falls Civitan Hall. We have been very fortunate to have two live bands with us for

the evening. Royale with Cheese and rukkus have generously offered their musical talents to play great dancing tunes for our guests. The evening will begin at 5 p.m. with a barbecue available for guests to have a bite to eat before the dance begins at 7 p.m. We will also be offering door prizes, raffle draws, a 50/50 draw and a light meal will be provided later in the evening. We are continuing to canvass local merchants, family and friends for contributions of door prizes and raffle items. Anyone interested in contributing in any way, contact Sheila Beaupre at either 613-283-9266 or sheilabeaupre@ripnet.com or Christine Brown at kianraylin@ gmail.com. Submitted by Hope 4 Hope.

Community – The storms that day could have knocked the power out, but it wouldn’t have made any difference. North Bay’s Matthew Hendry, in Smiths Falls for work, got a real kick out of peddling to produce power for the REAL-sponsored Tune Your Ride show Aug. 22. Once the rain finally stopped that day, musicians and singers Jessica Moore, Abigail Lapell and Dana Sipos put on a concert for about 25 people and boaters in Victoria Park. Tune Your Ride peddled from Toronto to Ottawa.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

No safe time to drink alcohol when pregnant DEAR EDITOR: For the first time ever, Canada has one national set of low-risk alcohol drinking guidelines. These guidelines, intended for Canadians of legal drinking age who choose to drink alcohol, aim to provide consistent information across the country to help Canadians moderate their alcohol consumption. The new guidelines outline standard drinks sizes, limits for men and women, recommendations for youth and when zero is the limit. Specifically, guideline 4 recommends that the safest choice for those who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding is no alcohol at all. Alcohol exposure in pregnancy can cause birth defects and brain damage to your baby. This lifelong disability is called Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and it does not go away as the child ages. For more information and resources, call the health unit or visit our website. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit kicked off a “No safe type, no same time, no safe amount” campaign Sept. 6 and 7 in Smiths Falls and Perth. This message refers to the recommendation that there is no safe time (or trimester) during a pregnancy to drink alcohol, no safe type or brand of alcohol during pregnancy (including coolers,

beer, wine and spirits) and no safe amount of alcohol consumption during pregnancy. Information was available at any of our partners’ locations in Smiths Falls and Perth: Rob Roy’s, Red Fox, The Golden Arrow, Fiddleheads Bar and Grill, and O’Reilly’s Pub. Fifty per cent of pregnancies are unplanned, so it is possible you drank alcohol before you realized you were pregnant. If this is the case, stop drinking immediately and contact your health care provider. It is important to maintain your health throughout your reproductive years, even if you aren’t planning to have a baby any time soon. This includes monitoring your drinking and living a healthy lifestyle. Remember, if you are not actively preventing pregnancy with a reliable method of birth control, you are planning a pregnancy. A great alternative to drinking alcohol at any time is to substitute alcoholic drinks for non-alcoholic cocktails, also known as “mocktails.” Mocktails are a delicious and fun way to have a drink without the effects of alcohol. For mocktail recipes, visit www.healthunit.org/alcoholdrug/ alcohol/mocktails.htm. Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit

COMMENTARY Time to show off your talents Editorial – Dust off those tap shoes and grab your microphone! Fall is just around the corner and the United Way of Lanark County is once again busy planning its My Town’s Got Talent event. This year’s event will be held in the Carleton Place High School cafetorium on Oct. 25, but there’s still plenty of time for local youth to take part. In addition to the traditional categories (dance, comedy, poetry, etc.), there is also a host competition and logo design competition component to this year’s My Town’s Got Talent. The semi-finals get underway throughout the county during the last week of September, from 4 to 9 p.m.: Sept. 23 at St. John Catholic High School in Perth; Sept. 24 at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute in Smiths Falls; Sept. 25 at Almonte District High School; and Sept. 26 at Carleton Place High School. During the finale, fans throughout the county will select the five finalists, along with help from celebrity judges. This initiative is a great opportunity for the youth of our communities to showcase their special skills, have fun while doing so and raise much-needed funds to continue the efforts of the United Way. All donations will go towards the non-profit organization’s fall campaign and support its youth initiatives in Lanark County, which includes five youth centres. Those looking to lend a helping hand through sponsorship can contact the United Way at 613-253-9074.

Fall fair left a lasting impression for Mary this one year Lifestyle – Weeks had passed since the Renfrew Fair. But I couldn’t get the picture out of my mind. It haunted me when I lay in bed at night, and many times during the day. Had not Uncle Lou sent Mother money in an envelope with the sole purpose of taking us five children to the Renfrew Fair, there is a good chance we may not have gone that year. Mother said money was scarcer than hen’s teeth, and that year we may have to miss the fair. It would be the first time ever, and how Uncle Lou knew of our situation is beyond me. But he always seemed to be there with a helping hand when we needed it most. So crisp bills came...not American, even though Uncle Lou lived in New York, but Canadian money simply sent in an envelope in the mail, with a note scrawled on a piece of note paper saying “enjoy the fair”. So we were going after all. The usual preparations took place. A big lunch packed in an 11 quart basket... shards of ice from the ice house in a glass jar of iced tea...sugar cookies,

and a bowl of sliced cucumbers, radishes, and green onions...there was no such thing as plastic containers, or saran wrap back in the 30’s. A couple blankets to throw down on the grass, and we were all set. Mother had doled out Uncle Lou’s money to each of us to spend as we wished. Audrey said she was sure she had kept back a bill or two, and we kids would never see it. It would go right into the sugar bowl with Mother’s egg money! The three brothers vanished into the crowd at the fairgrounds almost before Father brought the old Model T to a stop. They were told not to spend their money on food...there was plenty under the blanket on the grass! Mother would go to see the embroidery work and the baking, and Father would head for the livestock. My sister Audrey was saddled with looking after me, although there was no danger of a youngster of my age wandering off alone in those days. I knew where the blanket was, and I would be perfectly safe to come Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

and go as I pleased. Audrey said she would give me one half hour, and that was it. Then I was on my own. I told her I would like to just walk around…and wander in front of the big tents where the side-shows were, knowing perfectly well going inside was forbidden territory for me. But always out on the platform was a look of what a quarter would get you inside. I was fascinated at one stage where a little monkey sat on a chair eating a banana. I have no idea what was in the tent, but Audrey assured me it wasn’t suitable for the eyes of a sixyear-old! We wandered on, me holding tightly to Audrey’s hand, passing one tent

after another, all looking very forbidding to me. Then we came to the last tent in the row. A man, who looked like hadn’t seen bath water for a year, was honking through a horn affair inviting people in to see what he called “the oddities of mankind.” I had to ask Audrey what oddities meant, and she said just to look up on the stage. And there stood two little people. Their hair had been cut close to their heads, and they stood just a few feet tall. Their faces were wrinkled, and even at my young age, I saw such sadness and despair in their eyes as they scanned the crowd around the stage. They looked so frightened, and the man kept yelling out to the people in front, that for a quarter...“just twentyfive cents” he said, go into the tent and have a closer look. My heart went out to those two little people on the stage, in the blinding sun, and unbearable heat, and I wanted to climb up the steps and yank the horn out of the man’s hands, and go to the little people and put my arms around them.

I wanted to tell the people who were willing to part with a quarter, to turn away, look the other way. And I started to cry. My eyes connected with one of the little people, and her face, I thought softened, and I smiled in her direction. But the man was already shooing them off the stage and into the tent where those who had paid could get a closer look. I asked my sister why people would pay for this, and I told her I wanted to go to where our blanket was and sit for a spell and try to get the picture out of my mind. That year the rides didn’t seem as much fun, and the candy floss not as sweet. The picture stayed with me long after the Renfrew Fair was over. Like two lost souls, they were. When I went to bed at night after that day at the fair, when it came time for what Mother called our “silent prayers”, I remember the two little people, and I prayed that someone would rescue them from the man with the horn, and the hot tent, and the eyes of strangers. • 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.

CRUISING Community – On Sunday, Sept. 8, the annual Mike Bowes Memorial Cruise-In at the Perth Civitan drew a large crowd despite the cold wind. People from all around the Ottawa Valley brought their cars and enjoyed coffee, barbecue and the craft show. Above Michael Giroux stands with his 1962 AustinHealey, which has only been on the road for one year after he spent over 14 years renovating it. To the right, Bert Brennan shines his ’51 Pontiac, which he restored himself, after the drive to the show.

What to ask when choosing a realtor? Considering taking in renters? Read this first Lifestyle – When it comes to choosing a professional real estate team – from a realtor to a lawyer and home inspector, what do you need to know before selecting who you are going to work with? While there are a number of variables – if you’ve worked with the individual before, if they come referred by someone you trust and how much time you have to spend interviewing – there are some questions that you should ask before making any decisions, says Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “For starters, there are over 55,000 realtors in Ontario so narrowing down your search can be a challenge! Look for someone whose knowledge and expertise best suit your needs by doing your research first and asking lots of questions,” says Dorner. Here are some specific

questions to ask realtors, lawyers and home inspectors, courtesy of the Ontario Real Estate Association: What to ask a realtor: • Registered in Ontario and a member of a real estate board? • Credentials, background and references? • Years of experience and area of focus? • Recent sales and listings in the neighbourhood? • Track record for getting list price? • Knowledgeable about the market and financing options? • Opinions on marketability of the home? • Types of services on offer to assist with the buy/sell process? What to ask a lawyer: • Real estate experience? Number of real estate transactions handled? • Availability outside working hours?

this week in

• Fee structure and services provide for fee? • Estimate of all associated legal costs? • How/when will you be alerted, should costs appear likely to exceed estimates? • References? What to ask a home inspector: • What does the home inspection cover? Not cover? • If further inspection is required, what then? • Experience and qualifications? • Cost of the inspection?

“The right real estate team will help guide you through the nuts and bolts of the transaction and really simplify the process – but be sure to ask all your questions up front and choose your team carefully,” says Dorner. Submitted by the Ontario Real Estate Association.

EMC Lifestyle – For homeowners, renting out a room in your home, a basement apartment or purchasing an investment property can be an appealing way to help with the mortgage, utilize extra space or make a real estate investment. According to Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association, beyond the additional income, a rental property can be a valuable asset to your investment portfolio, as well as useful for family needs (including housing an aging relative or perhaps as a home for collegeaged children close to campus). “While there are clear benefits, before you consider becoming a landlord, make sure that you have a good grasp of what getting into the rental property business really entails,” says Dorner. Here are a few tips for pro-

spective landlords to get started: • Read the Residential Tenancies Act: Know your rights and responsibilities as a landlord. Understanding the act will help protect you as a landlord and also provide clarity on the roles of landlord and tenant. • Screen tenants: Choose your tenants carefully. Make sure that you have prospective tenants fill out an application, check their references and finally, carry out a credit check through a credit bureau. • Talk to your insurance company: Make sure to notify your home insurance company to avoid liability. • Ensure your rental suite is legal: Make sure your suite complies with municipal bylaws. If the suite is not up to standards, you will not be able to get insurance. • Learn from other landlords:

Do your research and talk to successful landlords who know the lay of the land. Tapping into the expertise of successful and experienced landlords is invaluable for first timers. Understand the responsibility and time commitment necessary in being a landlord and, if you are considering renting out a room in your home, make sure that you are comfortable making concessions in terms of your personal space and privacy. “It is also important to keep in mind that whether your rental suite is in your home or another property, the onus is on you to be available for dealing with anything that goes wrong – from a flooded basement to a broken toilet, you will need to be on call to deal with these situations if and when they should arise,” says Dorner.

Lifestyle – With another school year quickly approaching, it’s a great opportunity for students living away from home for the first time to develop good energy saving habits to reduce electricity bills and save money. To help students become more energy efficient throughout the school year, Hydro One has a handy list of tips: 1) Find out whether your electricity usage will be included in your rent or whether you will be billed separately. 2) If you will be billed separately, check whether Time-of-Use (TOU) pricing applies to you. This pricing plan will help you determine when the cost of electricity is lower throughout the day to better manage your electricity use habits. If you prefer studying late at night, you’re in luck as the lowest charging rate of electricity is at this time. To track your TOU electricity use, sign up for My Account today. 3) Turn off lights when they are not needed, especially if you know you are going to be out for the day. 4) Turn off your computer at night and use built in energy savings standby and hibernate functions when you are not using it throughout the day. 5) Be sure to turn off your television when not in use. LCD and LED models are the most energy efficient so be aware of older, hand-me-down television sets that could be draining your energy usage. 6) Air conditioning can use up a lot of electricity. In order to save money, open windows and consider using a fan, especially during peak hours. 7) Unplug your electronic devices when they are not in use to avoid what is known as phantom power. Phantom power is described as energy consumption that is still being drawn from household gadgets, electronic devices and appliances while they are switched off but plugged in. Plugging your appliances into a power bar can reduce unnecessary power use. 8) During the winter months, keep doors and windows closed, dress warmly, hang thick-lined curtains to keep the heat in and install weather stripping around the doors. This will allow you to minimize the use of electric heaters which use up a lot of energy. 9) Find out how your hot water is heated. If your unit uses a hot water heater, the amount of hot water you use will impact your electricity bill. Although you may enjoy taking long hot showers at home, you will find these showers quickly add up when paying your bill. Also ensure that you have your landlord fix any leaking taps to avoid sending extra money down the drain. 10) If you have a washing machine in your unit, try washing your clothing in cold water and during off-peak hours. Clothes dryers also consume a lot of energy so try and air-dry your clothing over a balcony or in the washroom if possible. Drying clothing during off-peak hours can also help you save money. 11) If possible, install compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) or LED lights which use significantly less energy than incandescent bulbs. Also consider using lamps to light your work area instead of lighting the whole room. 12) If you’re heading home for the holidays be sure to turn off your lights and unplug electronics before you leave. Submitted by Hydro One.

Arts – Fifteen young, local actors, aged between 12 and 17 have been rehearsing this summer to present the Shakespearean tragedy, Othello. It’s a story of love destroyed by manipulation, betrayal and jealous rage. Come and join the young actors of the Mississippi Mudds Youth Theatre in the round at the Carleton Place Town Hall as they present the first show in the Mississippi Mudds 2013-2014 season theatre line-up. There are two matinee performances at 2 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 20 and Saturday, Oct. 26. Evening performances at 8 p.m. are Friday, Oct. 25 and Saturday, Oct. 26. All seats $10. You know the story of Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol, and very likely you’ve seen it more than once, indeed perhaps have seen two or more versions of it. Even so, it’s an odds-on bet that you’ve never seen a version like this! Alistair Clinton has taken Dickens’ classic and played mischievously with the characters and dialog to turn it into a comedy

Kept simple, roundabouts can be very useful tool most cases. Those weren’t my first thoughts on encountering a roundabout in England however. Instead it was a worried “which way do we go here?” Because in Britain the largest roundabouts provide multiple options and it can be extremely confusing, especially the first time around. And around and around! I will readily admit it was roundabouts that cured me of the temptation to drive in the United Kingdom. My best advice? Use public transit and leave Britain’s roundabouts to the British! Driving on the left hand side of the road is confusing enough. Throw in some huge traffic circles and you have to pry my fingers off the steering wheel at the end of the journey. Still, I will readily admit these complex installations usually work very efficiently. The first circular junction in England opened in 1909 at Letchworth Garden City in the county of Hertfordshire, just north of London. The Letchworth roundabout was intended for the “modern automobile” but also to provide a central island for pedestrians. In Great Britain the modern roundabout really hit its stride in the 1960s and since has evolved into the “beast” I referred to earlier. Sorry, too busy and confusing for me in many cases! Common in Europe However, roundabouts need not be so intimidating. They are in widespread use in Europe. During a visit to Germany and France in 2011 (our friends were driving thankfully) we traveled through countless circular intersections. In most cases drivers had three choices. Go around to

the right (yes, they drive on the right hand side of the road in Continental Europe) and remain on the same road. Exit to the right and take an intersecting artery or circle the island and proceed along a route on the left hand side of the circle. Reasonably straight forward. In fact I’m sure I could manage those kinds of roundabouts! In 2010, the year before our visit to the Black Forest and the Alsace, France could claim more than 30,000 roundabouts. I’ll take the ones in the Alsace over those in Paris however. A Parisian roundabout is a synonym for “hell” based on what we witnessed in the French capital back in 1995. When in Paris stick to public transport, that’s my opinion! Despite my misgivings with respect to certain roundabouts I have seen the light in more recent times. I quite like the ones which are popping up in communities across our region, most notably in Ottawa where many more are slated for development. The reason I have warmed to roundabouts is mainly related to traffic flow. Certainly there is a calming effect involved because drivers are forced to slow down in order to navigate a traffic circle. Very different than in Canada and the United States where motorists are con-

stantly trying to beat traffic lights. Redlight running is a dangerous epidemic. The real advantage though is in keeping traffic moving. Red lights and stop signs force cars and trucks to come to a halt. On busy roadways the resulting back-up of slow moving vehicles (tailbacks as they are called in the UK) can be very time consuming and therefore extremely frustrating for drivers, especially during morning and evening rush hour. Traffic circles evolved early in the 20th century in the US but didn’t particularly catch on until the 1990s when roundabouts came into limited use in parts of the country. Circular intersections met with opposition from Americans who, like me when we first traveled in Britain, knew nothing about them. In fact Americans’ inability to exit roundabouts has been mocked on film. Do you remember Chevy Chase in that hilarious scene from ‘European Vacation’? He became trapped in a London roundabout. Priceless! As we move farther into the 21st century, traffic planners in Canada have discovered the usefulness of traffic circles. I can recall when the only one of significance in Ottawa was at the intersection of Queen Elizabeth Driveway and Prince of Wales Drive, near the Arboretum at the Central Experimental Farm. Now there are a number of them in the nation’s capital, although the only ones I have encountered are in quiet, suburban parts of the city. As I mentioned, many more are on the drawing boards. Kemptville, in our readership area, has at least three that I am aware of. Almonte

has a rather impressive roundabout on its eastern boundary. Last Wednesday I drove our daughter to Ottawa airport to catch a flight to her new home in Regina. I thought we had lots of time. But to avoid all of the construction I was already aware of in Ottawa’s west end I took a more southerly route, hoping to skirt around the trouble spots. I wasn’t the only one! When I reached the intersection of Fallowfield Road and Old Richmond Road the line-up of traffic ahead of us was depressing. We literally crawled from that point until we cleared the busy Barrhaven community. For a time I feared Heather might miss her required check-in time. The reason for the long, slowing moving string of vehicles? Traffic lights! There are three or four in quick succession which caused a back-up on the twolane road that stretched for at least two kilometres. As we inched forward in frustration I broke the silence. “Roundabouts! That would make a big difference here,” I told Heather. “There wouldn’t be a tie-up like this if there were roundabouts at the intersections instead of traffic signals.” I realize roundabouts have their limitations which I’m sure some of you will point out. I would like to see it kept simple here. Roundabouts with half a dozen exits are no fun at all! On average however I think their time has come in Canada and particularly in our largest urban centres.

Lifestyle – I can well remember the first time I encountered a roundabout. When you are driving in England and you come to a roundabout it is not something you soon forget! The highways and byways of Great Britain are notoriously crowded. Try heading to an English seaside resort on August Bank Holiday and you will see what I mean. Roundabouts are another matter entirely. These European highway fixtures have very quickly come into vogue in Canada and eastern Ontario in particular in recent times. But in case you have yet to experience one – which is entirely possible – roundabout is just another word to describe a traffic circle. To further explain, these transportation marvels are circular junctions where traffic is slowed but never really stops. Instead vehicles flow in one direction around a centre island and the driver has a choice of several exits which merge with intersecting roads. When approaching a modern roundabout motorists must always yield to vehicles which are already in the roundabout. Once the lane you plan to enter is clear you can proceed around the circle and either continue on your present route or exit directly onto an intersecting roadway. There are lots of descriptions and diagrams on-line if my explanation fails to suffice! There’s no question roundabouts are safer than traffic signals because they eliminate red light running and the possibility of so called “T-bone” crashes which can be so deadly. They also keep traffic flowing at a much better rate in

Big splash at the Gallipeau Centre The Gallipeau Centre swimming pool in Smiths Falls was bustling with activity on Sept. 7, during the grand opening ceremony. The big splash has been a long time coming and a welcome sight for residents of the town and surrounding communities. The project is the result of a collaborative effort between the Gallipeau family, who own the centre,

The Hub, a community group dedicated to wellness, Aviva, which provided the $99,000 grant that made it possible and Superior Pools, who lent their expertise. Local children were the first to enjoy the new pool, which was evident from the sound of their splashes as they jumped in at the exact moment of the ribbon cutting.

OPP hires from within, Needham chosen as new detachment commander By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – Just as everything changed on 9/11, so too did everything change quickly for Derek Needham, the new detachment commander for the Lanark County OPP, just last week. On Wednesday, Sept. 4, the then Staff Sergeant sat before an interviewing committee as one of the candidates to replace outgoing Insp. Gerry Salisbury, who had been the detachment commander for 16 years before announcing his retirement. By the next day, an OPP press release went out announcing that Needham was to be Salisbury’s replacement. Needham was still on vacation, and would take up

his position on Monday, Sept. 9. And you thought you had a lot of work waiting for you when you got back to the office after vacation. “I was thrilled to have the confidence and support of the staff,� said Needham of the decision. As one enters Needham’s office, the first imposing image that meets one’s eyes is a blown up, mounted image of the front page of the 9/11 edition of The Record from Bergen, New Jersey, of three emergency workers raising the red, white, and blue at Ground Zero on the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001. “It’s a reminder of the reasons why we do some of the things we do,� said Needham, settling down in a seat beside

the iconic image of that terrible day 12 years ago this week. “It represents a turning point in a lot of ways, to law enforcement, to how we do business.� Needham had only been on the job as an OPP officer for a few years at that point, and the memories of that day still stick with officers who were on the job that day. A native of Kanata, he first served in Morrisburg for a year, before moving to Arnprior for five years, then a five year posting as a sergeant in Kirkland Lake, before moving to Perth in May of 2009. Looking back over his elementary school records now, he admits that it was not surprising that he chose policing as his career.

“I was about five,� when he knew, he said during an interview this past Monday. “‘Policeman’ was (written) there quite often,� as his career of choice, even after other boys and girls had abandoned the notion. But, unlike others for whom policing is their life’s dream, he did not act on the idea until he was in his 20s. “I wasn’t 20 or 19 coming out of high school,� said Needham. Instead of taking police foundations, he went to Carleton University where he studied economics, before applying to the OPP and taking up police training. Once he graduated, “Dad was pretty proud,� even more so since no other family members had sought out a career

with the police. While never taking anything for granted, Needham admitted that Salisbury had succession planning on his mind for some years before his retirement. “You have to make sure that when you walk out the door that there was someone competent to take over,� said Needham, who would often accompany Salisbury to police service board meetings across the county, or even act in his stead when Salisbury was away. “Gerry had given me lots of opportunities over the last four years to be ready for it,� he said. “There are a lot of meetings that go with this job.� See OPP page SF2

occurred last April. “(But) I’ll make changes if we have to,” said Needham. In his spare time, he enjoys cycling and martial arts. “I love cycling. Lanark County has some beautiful roads,” said Needham. As for his martial arts, he likes to mix it up a bit, pursuing both karate and mixed martial arts. “The karate is great for the mind and the body,” he said. “It is a great way to unwind. It’s a great hobby.” As for mixed martial arts, he has only been in one competition, an exhibition ring fight – which he lost on points, but which he also called, “a good experience.” Needham is quick to stress that he truly enjoys working in La-

While taking nothing for granted, Needham applauded the selection committee for choosing from within the Lanark County ranks. “It makes it easier to lead the transition,” said Needham. “I’m already up to speed with what the issues are and who the people are.” While Salisbury certainly left his mark on the detachment, Needham does not foresee a huge shift in the way business is done at the Highway 7 offices. “There won’t be any huge changes. We run a pretty well run detachment here,” said Needham, though he admits that there are “minor adjustments that we have to make,” with the Perth Police Photo by DESMOND DEVOY Service’s amalgamation, which

nark County, and an experience that very morning in the grocery store across the road drove that point home to him. As he perused the produce, an elderly woman noticed his police uniform and told him, “make sure you pick something healthy.” “Now, where else would you get that, except Lanark County?” he asked with a smile. “Because we (our officers) are plugged into the community, people are not hesitant to approach us.” For any of the community events going on in the county, usually sports, he boasted that “chances are I have at least one officers involved in that. They (the public) get to know officers, personally, and not just in uniform.”

Mystery artifact at local museum By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community – The Heritage House Museum has a mystery on its hands and is asking the public’s help in solving the puzzle. A glass bottle bearing the words, ‘Star Bottling Works – R. Ward – Prop. – Smiths Falls’ has been dropped off at the museum. The letters are all raised and there’s also a five-point star located in the middle of the writing. “We’ve done a little bit of preliminary research, but found nothing connecting it with Smiths Falls,� said Logan Burns, heritage interpreter with the museum. The bottle was found

by Bob Wrightly some 40 years ago. According to the information recorded by the museum it was found “on the fence line near the road between the Roger Stevens Road and Merrickville.� While staff at the museum have discovered that there were a number of companies in both Canada and the United States that operated under the name Star Bottling Works, they have been unable to find a connection to Smiths Falls. The museum is calling on anyone in the community who might be able to shed any light on Star Bottling Works in Smiths Falls to drop by or call the museum at 613-283-6311.

Police Services reach out to the community The Smiths Falls Police Services Board has released its 2012 Annual Report. “Our focus has been on education and training, not just for police officers but also for our civilian staff,� said Karen Hallinan, chair of the Smiths Falls Police Services Board. The service upped it’s community engagement, creating a Community Service Officer. The position has proven to be extremely successful in raising awareness of the service’s presence and commitment to the community. “There is always going to be a reactive portion to our service but the proactive portion is what we can do before a problem manifests and we’ve made leaps and bounds in that area with the community service officer position,� said Police Chief, Robert Dowdall. “Thank you to the board and to yourself Chief, in creating the community service officer. I can’t say enough good things about Constable Murphy, he’s always very pro-active and has great ideas. It’s a program that’s working,� said Coun. Lorraine Allen. Big Brothers and Big Sisters could use some help Celebrating 40-years in Smiths Falls this year, Big Brothers and Big Sisters services have grown tremendously in the past four decades. “We’ve expanded the number of programs, trying to get out to where the kids are and that’s affecting our growth but the need is growing as well,� said Jennifer Miller, executive director. The organization has found that collaborating with other organization has greatly improved their reach but funding is still an issue. “We’re here today to ask for your investment of $3,000 or four per cent of our programming in Smiths Falls,� said Miller. The response around the council table was very positive with Coun. Shawn Pankow particularly interested in finding ways to narrow the gap between those children that need mentoring and the number of available mentors.

there’s still a lot that needs to happen, but it can be done while the park is being used,� said Scott. Right now the park is treed, but the committee is planning to install benches, dog play structures and

maybe even a gazebo in the future. Naming the park is the next thing on the agenda, and at the Sept. 9 committee-of-the-whole Coun. Brennan proposed the name Gleeson Park as a fitting trib-

ute, and friendlier name than just Smiths Falls Off-Leash Dog Park. “The park isn’t just for Smiths Falls residents either,� said Jackie. “Anyone from neighbouring municipalities can use it too.�

Parks Canada hopes to map new growth for Rideau Canal Corridor flects our government’s desire to engage key stakeholders in a conversation about the future sustainability of the Rideau Canal,” said Brown. Using the Rideau Landscape Strategy and municipal official plans as the information base, the various partners will come together in October to begin deliberations. The goal is to identify new business opportunities and enhance tourism along the canal. From a tourism perspective, as it stands the canal passes through so many communities with so many different touch points that there is no single Rideau experience. The idea behind this project will be to develop a cohesive strategy that unifies the experience for visitors. “The idea is to develop a signature Rideau experience,” said Forcier. There are several phases envisioned according to Forcier, the first phase involving a series of structured brain storming session with all the partners. “In those sessions we’ll be developing a Visitor Experience Opportunity Concept (VEOC) with a goal of blue skying what the visitor experience is. The aim is to answer the question ‘how can we better host our guests?’,” explained Forcier. In that process it’s expected that business opportunities that can contribute to the region’s economies will emerge.

News - In an effort to lift the fortunes of communities along the Rideau Canal corridor, a new partnership has been struck to find groundbreaking ways to encourage economic growth and tourism. “This is very much in keeping with what Parks Canada wants to accomplish to foster sustainable recreation, tourism and economic development in innovative ways that will contribute to the local economies,” said Darlene Upton, executive director of waterways for Parks Canada. The Living and Visiting the Rideau UNESCO World Heritage Site project, announced by Leeds Grenville MP Gord Brown on Sept 4, is a partnership project involving a number of stakeholders. “It’s an inclusive process, where stakeholders will have an opportunity to provide feedback at different phases of the project,” said Anne-Marie Forcier, executive director, Rideau Heritage Route Tourism Association Those partners include the Rideau Roundtable, the Rideau Heritage Route Tourism Association, the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville, Lanark County, the Town of Smiths Falls, and the Valley Heartland, Thousand Islands and Grenville, Community Futures Development Corporations.

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - September 23, 1913

A dispatch from Ottawa says: A bulletin issued by the census and statistics office of the department of Trade and Commerce gives preliminary estimates of the yield of spring wheat, rye, oats and barley, as compiled from reports of correspondents upon the appearance of these crops. Of spring wheat the average yield per acre is provisionally placed at 21.24 bushels per acre. The yield per acre in 1912 was 20.99 bushels for fall wheat and 20.37 bushels for spring wheat. Oats had an average yield of 40.98 bushels per acre; barley, a yield per acre of 31.05 bushels. The estimated yield of rye is 2,425,000 bushels for 127,000 acres, being a yield per acre of 19.06 bushels. 50 YEARS AGO - September 17, 1963 Parents of students attending the five local schools will now have to assume full responsibility for medical and other expenses incurred as result of accidents to their children during school hours, or while under the jurisdiction and supervision of the Board of Education. This decision was made at the regular meeting of the board held last Thursday night, and resulted from a discussion when accounts were presented and ordered paid for expenses incurred by two pupils resulting from accidents which occurred at Spooner Memorial public school and the collegiate last June. The action was also taken on the recommendation of the insurance company, which carries the liability insurance. 25 YEARS AGO - September 21, 1988

Remember When

The Terry Fox Run raised $7,000. In memory of a great Canadian, people across the nation ran, walked and wheeled to earn money for cancer research. In this area, two Terry Fox Runs were held September 18, one in Smiths Falls and one in Burritt’s Rapids. Both runs were deemed successful by organizers with a total of close to 200 people trekking the 10km. Together the two communities raised over $7000. At 8am Sunday, the Smiths Falls run got underway. Sixteen year old John Moulton participated in the annual event for the third year. Accompanied by his sister Nancy and brother Chris. John, who contracted cancer a few years ago has been the unofficial Terry’s Team member for the town. He found out when he was 12.

What does the colour blue look like to you?

L

ifestyle -“On August 20, 2013 the Smiths Falls Civitan Club invited LGBT Lanark County to join forces a move that would see LGBT Lanark County become the first LGBT Civitan Club in the World.” It seems to be everywhere this need to label people as something - white, brown, gay, lesbian and left-handed or right-handed. I just wonder what those labels really accomplish. My colour doesn’t have anything to do with the type of person I am, anymore than being right or left handed - so why do we need an LGBT label in 2013, in Canada? Sure back in the 1980s it was necessary to raise awareness that being gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual or queer was as natural as being tall, short, blond or brunette. The question is why 30 years later we’re still belaboring that point. It seems to me that the longer we use the labels the longer we segregate and separate people from one another. Today an LGBTQ club should be just as offensive as a club for whites or blacks? Surely the goal was/is inclusion not exclusion.

10 YEARS AGO - September 3, 2003 Don’t expect Smiths Falls officials to rush the site plan control agreement for the new high school through the system for the sake of expediency. After months of waiting for the document to arrive at the town hall, the site plan application arrived from the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) last Monday, August 25. While the construction of the new school falls under the jurisdiction of the school board, any development must be approved by the municipality to ensure it meets building and fire codes as well as other requirements. In a press release Aug. 29, the board detailed what the agreement involves - everything from the actual physical location of the school on the 25-acre site, parking, services such as water and sewer, and drainage. Elevations walk ways, curbs, paving, exterior lighting, signage and landscaping are other aspects covered in the application. Director of Education Gino Giannandrea expressed a wish to have the town “consider the application expeditiously,” noting board and town staff members had met on several occasions. Compiled by Leanne Jarrett

HOWAIDA SOROUR Heddy’s Ramble I’m starting to feel excluded from LGBT groups because my orientation isn’t included in that label. How about we come up with a simpler label - human - and leave it at that. Good heavens. Past time we did away with judgments and got on with the business of living together peacefully. It’s hard enough, as it is for humans, to agree on anything given the already immense differences in our basic sensory perceptions. Really, describe the shade of your favourite colour blue - gahead!! So why do we need to invent more ways to separate ourselves from each other? Yet just this week a story in the news pointed out that half of Ottawa homeless youth iden-

tified as LGBTQ, and one pundit called it an epidemic in Canada. I can see how one might call homelessness a social epidemic but LGBTQ just is - it’s not a disease or even a disorder. That 50 per cent of homeless youth identify as LGBTQ suggests that 30 years of awareness hasn’t made a dent in our societal ignorance on either side - the side that frowns on LGBTQ or the side that can’t identify with ‘straight’. Ultimately the problem is the label itself. Of course it’s the swing of the pendulum, and the pendulum needed to go all the way to the left and back before it could settle in the middle. But surely the time has come for us to embrace that middle now - that place where our sexual orientation is as irrelevant as our hair or skin colour. Then maybe we can reclaim some beautiful words that we’ve lost to all these labels. Words like gay which once meant light-hearted and carefree or queer which once meant strange or odd instead of wasting good words on a reality that has been with us since homo sapiens evolved.

Bylaw introduced by the town to regulate smoking in public places To the Residents of Smiths Falls The council of the Town of Smiths Falls adopted a Smoking Bylaw to further regulate smoking in public areas. The purpose of the bylaw was to recognize that smoking is a damaging habit that should be discouraged in an effort to encourage a healthy community, while

respecting that this time tobacco is a legal product and that residents have a personal choice to smoke or not smoke. The town has enacted the following regulations: No person shall smoke on municipal property; no person shall smoke in a municipal park; no person shall smoke within 9m of any sports facility, playground, splash pad, wading

pool or sports field (including spectator areas); no person shall smoke within 5m of the entrance, windows or air intake of a publicly accessible building – This clause does not include a restriction on sidewalks. Smoking is still permitted to occur on the sidewalk, and if the entrance of the building is immediately adjacent to the

sidewalk this bylaw does not apply. This clause also does not include patios. In each of the above restricted areas a designated smoking area will be provided. this area will be signed and smoking may occur within 5m of the sign. The town has launched an awareness campaign about how this bylaw will affect residents of Smiths Falls. Enforce-

Reader questions politicians’ judgment regarding conference DEAR EDITOR: MP Scott Reid and MPP Randy Hillier have said they are “excited” and/ or “enthusiastic” about the Property Rights Conference in Ottawa from Sept. 13-15. One of the speakers is from the Cato Institute – an American libertarian “think tank”, initially funded by one of the infamous Koch brothers.

The Cato wing-nuts have never met a regulation that they like. They are opposed to any attempt to provide for clean air, safe drinking water, controls on any financial institution, legal protection for minority groups, sciencebased public policy. The Cato Institute is opposed to public education, public transit, public health care (especially our

universal health care), Social Security (Canada Pension Plan/Old Age Security here in Canada). And the list goes on and on. The Cato Institute is so far out of the mainstream of public policy groups in the United States that it has to fund many conferences there and around the world in order to spread its toxic messages.

We would ask that students bring with them some non-perishable food items to the school and that the school have a place where this could be stored. We are selecting Thursday Oct. 10, 2013 as our date that the non-perishable food would be picked up by our officers in the cruisers. With the assistance of the students they would help police “Stuff” the cruiser full of food that would then be delivered to our local food

bank. We realize there are numerous fundraisers on the go all year long, but if every child brought even one can of food it would make a huge impact for our community. We did this last year as I’m sure you remember and the support was a tremendous help to the food bank with a total weight of 4625lbs of food plus money. We hope for this continued support.

It is perhaps reasonable to assume that there is a major financial involvement of the Cato Institute in the conference in Ottawa. One would hope for better judgment on the part of our elected representatives. Doug Phillips Smiths Falls

Our goal this year is to collect even more to help support the less fortunate persons of our Sensational Community Thanking you in advance for your support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of us. Sincerely, Sgt Jodi Empey and Cst David Murphy Smiths Falls Police Service

Events – It’s fall again and the Smiths Falls Station Theatre’s Movie Nights are back along with Film Night International. This year Movie Nights will kick off the film experience in town. “We’re starting the season on Thursday, Sept. 12 with Star Trek into Darkness,” said Lynda Daniluk, Smiths Falls Community Theatre member at large. Just in its second year Movie Nights shows one movie once a month until June, on two consecutive nights: a Thursday and Friday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10. “We try to bring movies that have just been released on DVD as it’s simply too expensive to get movies that haven’t been released yet,” said Roger Sands, vice president, Smiths Falls Community Theatre. In most cases the movies will have only been out a few days on DVD. See more on the movies next week.

Amanda Jordan, young talent embraces every opportunity to perform on stage By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News – Lombardy resident Amanda Jordan, just 17 years old, made it into the top 10 at Ottawa Idol, and now gets to work with her fellow top 10 contestants on a concert that will be performed at a major venue in Ottawa in the spring. “She will be starting to rehearse with our Idol band for our Christmas Concert and our Red Carpet in May, this makes all the vocalists into real singers when they get to rehearse with a band and perform in our concerts,” said Eldon J. Fox, founder and executive producer of Ottawa Idol. The Canterbury High School vocals student will also be appearing in a Rogers TV series which airs in the next couple of weeks where she and seven other performers sing their original works and are interviewed in half-hour shows. “Amanda was very prepared for our show and delivered an excellent performance,” said Steve Gingras, Rogers Community Television producer and show creator. “Her interview segment also went well.” Jordan says she started singing when she was just three years old, and has never stopped. Now she takes every opportunity she can to audition and perform. “It’s really fun, and you really learn

from the exposure,” says Jordan. To enter the Ottawa Idol competition, Jordan had to sing one a cappella song, and one with instrumentals behind her at Merivale Mall. Three days later she had made the top 22 and a week later had to perform again for the second round of cuts for the top 10. “Once I made it into the top 10, the next day was the next elimination round for the top five, I didn’t make it,” said Jordan. As nerve racking as the auditions can be, Jordan highly recommends the process. “I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to perform,” she said. “Even though it’s scary to audition, taking the risk helps you get over your nerves and if it’s what you love to do then you need to take the risk to become a better performer.” It’s that attitude as much as her talent that gets Jordan noticed. Her willingness to learn and work at her craft is getting her the attention she needs to keep growing. “Amanda will be a different person this time next year as far as performing on stage and bringing out her great voice with a lot more confidence,” said Fox. “She is a beautiful young lady, with great physical appearance on stage, always dressed for the song she is sing-

ing, much like Taylor Swift.” Although Jordan is mostly focused on singing and performing she also writes some of her own songs. “I occasionally write songs when something really hits me,” Jordan said. Something certainly moved her, when she met the Curvy Girls, a scoliosis support group for teenagers in 2011. Jordan had just performed a song for the CTV CHEO telethon, and the Curvy Girls were one right after her, apparently the meeting left quite an impression on Jordan. “She said she wanted to write a song for us, and she performed it at one of our support meetings,” said Andrea Lebel, adult leader with Curvy Girls. The song “Got your Back” was so well received by the Curvy Girls, they asked Jordan to perform it at the scoliosis annual awareness walk in June 2013. “We’d also like to invite her to the Curvy Girls International Scoliosis Convention to be held in June 2014 – but we’re still fundraising for that. Our goal is to have Amanda share her song with all our scoliosis members,” said Lebel. She might not write a lot of songs, but the ones she has written so far are garnering positive reviews. “The quality of her song writing ability is amazing for her age. The Rog-

She was recently named in the top 10 of the Ottawa Idol competition. ers producer we worked with was also impressed with her song writing,” said Gingras. A wonderfully articulate young lady, she knows that music will always play a role in her life but at 17 she’s not entirely sure just how much of a role yet. “I might be studying music at Ottawa University when I finish school,” said Jordan. “I mean, I love music but I’m

also interested in psychology.” In the meantime you can catch Jordan in live performances with her acoustic guitar at Coffee Culture in the near future. She hasn’t set a date yet so keep an eye out! She will be at Coffee Culture in the near future. She hasn’t set a date yet so keep an eye out!

JUDY BROWN May 27, 1945–September 14, 2012 It’s been a year since you passed away. We still think of you every day.

Goodbyes are not forever, Goodbyes are not the end, It simply means we will miss you Until we meet again. Dave, Min, Jayden and family

IN MEMORIAM

ROSBOROUGH, Margaret (Currie) – November 2, 1936 - September 16, 2012. One year ago today we lost the most significant woman in our lives - treasured mother, mother-in-law, nanny, great nanny, sister, sister-in-law and mistress. No one knew when she went into the hospital in late August she would never return to her beloved family and home. She fought a hard battle but she just wanted to go to sleep - knowing in her heart she would be reunited with her “Johnnie”. Oh how she missed Dad. They say time heals but the pain of loss is as strong today as on the day we lost her. Mom lives on in all of us and we thank God we did have her for as long as we did. Loving and missing you always, Debbie, Cindy, Michael, JoAnne, Monty and Families

HUDSON September 15, 1989– March 8, 2009 Pumpkin, If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, I would walk right up to Heaven, And bring you back again. No farewell words were spoken, No time to say ‘goodbye’, You were gone before I knew it, And only God knows why. My heart still aches in sadness, And secret tears still flow, What it meant to love you, No one can ever know. But now I know you want me, To mourn for you no more, To remember all the happy times, Life still has much in store. Since you’ll never be forgotten, I pledge to you today, A hallowed place within my heart, Is where you’ll always stay. Love your Fairy Godmother Corny

Stepping into the spotlight at recent MERA concert changed, its great to see live music now available at The Golden Arrow Pub & Eatery (previously the Crown & Thistle) in Perth. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve caught a couple of

father and son together but this evening brought not only father Chris on pedal steel, harmonica, guitar and trumpet but sister Jenny providing some vocals on a few and brother-in-law Joey Wright on mandolin and guitar throughout. Close family friend, Melwood Cutlery joined in on a George Jones song â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;She Thinks I Still Careâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Like I said, it was a rare occasion. Now Dan is a shy, quiet guy. He tends to speak through his instruments and in that light he filled the room all night. Whether on mandolin, guitar, vocals or harmonica he excelled. Playing a Willie P. Bennett song, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Country Squallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, opened the show followed by Charlie Sizemoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Really Goneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Joey and Dan smoked the place with a mandolin duet of one of Joeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Big Babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and then â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tennessee Blues/Liza Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I took a seat in the front row just so I could get a glimpse of the fingers at work and between Dan, Joey and also Chris on pedal steel Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to say much was a blur. It was spellbinding playing. You could feel Danâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shyness at the beginning but as things moved along and the comfort of the room and family swaddled him, his most inner self was exposed through his picking and harp blowing. He was definitely in the spotlight and he shone. Wonderful versions of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wino The Clownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by George Jones and Jenny joining on vocals of Chrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; song â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Take Your Time and Do It Rightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; kept the show in the stratosphere. Jenny also joined Dan on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Halls of Folsomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and a spine tingling a cappella duet of the gospel tune, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Willinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; To Tryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Dan shared heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d played in a jazz band with his dad for 10 years and together they played â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nearness of Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, a Hoagy Carmichael tune with Dan playing Chrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sweet sounding Joe Pass Signature hollow body guitar which added a vintage, classic sound. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure the venue mystique only added to the offering of such timeless, well played tunes. Thanks everyone who made this evening a memorable one.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It was like stepping back in time as we ran from the dryness of our car through the pouring rain and stepped, like the thousands before us over the years, into the security of MERA (McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corners/Elphin Recreation and Arts) run historic McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corners Schoolhouse, built around 1860. Rural community buildings like this were used for all sorts of gatherings of the local populace besides the educational origins and it was for one of these noneducational but enchanting evenings of music that we scurried into the schoolhouse, welcoming its dryness and seeping history as well as the camaraderie of others organizing and attending. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help noticing the well-worn hardwood floors throughout, wood panel walls, chain hung lights and a large wooden spinning wheel perched in reverence atop an ancient upright piano overseeing the concert room. Historically themed quilts and weavings grace the walls as we settle to take in a rare occurrence. We often become familiar with music groups via their front performers, rarely hearing much of the backing musicians. Multi-instrumentalist Dan Whiteley is one of those â&#x20AC;&#x153;behind the scenesâ&#x20AC;? or usual backing sidemen who share their talents to make someone else sound just that much better. A member of one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most notable musical clans, he is multiple Juno awardwinning Jenny Whiteleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Toronto keyboardist, Jesseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, blues veteran Chris Whiteleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son and blues/gospel balladeer Ken Whiteleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nephew. Growing up in a musical household he got an early start recording with his sister Jenny on Raffi and their father Chris and uncle Kenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discs before Jenny and Dan formed the 1998 Juno nominated bluegrass group Heartbreak Hill whom I had the privilege of seeing at Festival of Friends in Hamilton on a couple of occasions. Over the years, Dan has played â&#x20AC;&#x153;behind the scenesâ&#x20AC;? for Fathead, Prairie Oyster, Amy Milan, Luther Wright, Jenny Whiteley, Joey Wright (his brother-in-law) to name but a few. I point out the â&#x20AC;&#x153;behind the scenesâ&#x20AC;? usual location of Dan because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what made this evening even more special. Dan was stepping into the spotlight to promote his new CD aptly titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Out of the Spotlightâ&#x20AC;?.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I moved to Smiths Falls, from Merrickville, with my mother and father when I was five. My dad had just purchased the Marsh Funeral Home and began the Lannin Funeral Home and Ambulance Service. Smiths Falls in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50s and early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s was a great place for a little girl to grow up. Where we lived, on the corner of Main and Market streets, everything that I ever wanted to participate in was within walking distance. This included a whole neighbourhood of kids the same age and of course my best friend, Lorraine, who lived next door. In those days parents did not drive their children to activities. They had to get there themselves or stay home. So I began my schooling a few blocks from home at Central School. Church was a few blocks away and in the summer you could walk to Victoria Park for a dip in the wading pool or Hydro Park for swimming lessons. There, on a hot summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day, you could sit on the sandy beaches and buy a treat of Pink Elephant popcorn from the canteen or just sit and watch your reflection from atop the beautiful old wooden bridges that divided the pools into three distinct swimming areas. In all seasons the rink provided entertainment from skating in the winter to roller-skating in the summer and dances for the older kids. The public library was just up the street for all your reading needs, although at that time, I hated reading. So my best friend, who loved to read, would read all her favourite books then proceed to retell them to me in great detail. Every day after school a group of the neighbourhood kids would meet at the Market Street market, to play ball, tag and a game we dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;run aroundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Mr. Kerr, who weighed coal trucks at the market, kept a watchful eye over all of us and Styles Grocery kept us supplied daily in a large assortment of penny candy. On Saturdays the routine was always the same. Saturday meant matinee day at the Soper Theatre. What a bargain for every parent in town. For less than a dollar you could send your kids for a whole afternoon of free babysitting. For this measly sum, you got admittance to two cartoons, a feature length film, and a second movie. And if you missed any part of the first show you could see it repeated and be home in time for dinner. My Saturday afternoon ritual was always the same. Lorraine would call on me right after lunch and we would walk a block-and-a-half to the Soper. You would form a long singular, quiet line that would often go way around the corner. The man who managed the Soper was a short, middle-aged man who never smiled. We were all terrified of him. He would march up and down the street making sure that we never talked or butted in line or had any fun with our friends while we waited to buy our tickets. As we would get closer to the doors we could see the three glass cases that displayed the posters for coming attractions. Disney movies were always a hit and never a week went by without a western. John Wayne always seemed to be in town. Elvis Presley was always a draw, especially for the older kids. When you finally got to the big glass doors and paid your 50 cents to get in, the candy counter, with all its alluring treats, lay before you. You could get a large popcorn for 25 cents and a pop from the machine for a dime. Lorraine always bought Macin-

at Christmas, Santa would put in an appearance and hand out red mesh stockings with candy in them to all the kids. The back seats were reserved for smokers and amorous teenagers who liked to bring their dates and sit in the dark and kiss. I always thought it strange that it seemed okay to smooch in the back rows but if you put your feet on the seat in front of you the ushers would turn their flash lights on you and ask you to step outside. Such was life in a small town. I smoked my first and only pack of cigarettes in the back row of the Soper. I went to the show with my cousin Debbie, a bad influence, who was a little older and definitely not any wiser. Yes, I did smoke the entire pack of Kool Menthol cigarettes in one sitting because I knew if I went home with them and my mother found them I would be in trouble. Lorraine reminded me later, that that was what I got for going to the show without her. I never smoked again. And so life continued until I grew up, married and moved back to Merrickville. I was in Smiths Falls the other day to visit my mom and I stopped in front of the old Soper, pulled over and got out of my car to observe the demolition. The yellow safety tape was up and a large bulldozer stood in a pile of rubble that was once the Soper Theatre. I had been aware of its fate for quite some time now. Lorraine is still keeping me updated with things I should have been reading on my own. So I stopped for a few minutes and remembered, ghosts of Saturday matinees past. Life seemed so simple when you were a child. It remains in our memories so much like the old movies we were watching at the Soper. Life was an exciting adventure, you knew who your heroes were and there was always a happy ending. Growing up, we realize that those precious childish thoughts are about as realistic as the movies we watched. For those of you who remember the Soper in happier times, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure you will count yourself lucky to have enjoyed that tired old cement block building that transported you every Saturday afternoon to anywhere you wanted to go. And all it cost was less than a dollar and an afternoon with a friend.

Sports – Despite the outcome of back-to-back losses to the Carleton Place Jr. A Canadians over the weekend, the Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears still had a pretty good weekend in Central Canada Hockey League action. “We played a tough team this weekend; we’re not dissatisfied at all,” said assistant coach Walt Dubas. “We played what we think is the best team in the league and we played them tough.” The Canadians posted a 3-2 Friday night win in overtime, thanks to a Stephen Baylis’ maker in the extra frame and a 3-1 win at home on Saturday evening. In Friday’s game, Stefano Momesso scored in the first period, with help from Brett Costello at the 9:45 mark. Carleton Place tied it in the second, with a powerplay marker from Kelly Summers. Smiths Falls went ahead in the third on Domenic Camastra’s goal, assisted by Michael McKenney and Alek Deblois at the 2:21 mark. But Carleton Place tied it with 13:03 on the clock when Andy Sturtz scored to force the overtime. “We are steadily improving and that shows we can compete

in the league so we’re satisfied that we’re progressing. We still have to correct some things so we get the wins, but we played them as tough as we usually do.” Dubas says the Bears need to be better in their own zone, and it’s team play they need to work on. “It’s defensive end-zone coverage; it breaks down in overtime and they score… so we’re going to have to play better team defence,” Dubas said, as the reason Friday’s game fell off the rails. Their final line of defence, goalie Michael Pinios played well in both games, the assistant coach noted. For his efforts, Pinios earned Honourable Mention among the league’s Corporate Hype Player of the Week nominees. Goalie Darren Smith of the Pembroke Lumber Kings took the top honours. “We’re happy with him. We need to work on defensive zone coverage. This league, historically, has been one where you have to have great penalty killers or don’t take the penalties… we prefer not to take the penalties.” Sometimes though, it’s easier said than done to stay out of the penalty box. On Saturday in Carleton Place, Baylis put the Canadians on the

board in the first period, and it wasn’t until the third when Smiths Falls could break through. Brandon Lesway had the Bears’ only marker with help from Deblois and Ben Beasley at 9:27. Carleton Place went on the powerplay with Larry Smith scoring the eventual winner and Andrew Dodson connecting for the shorthanded insurance goal with help from Baylis with less than a minute to play. Justin Laforest and Cory Simic each picked up wins for Carleton Place. “They’re a great bunch of kids. A lot of good character kids. They’re coming together as a team and they’re doing some community functions on their own and we think that’s fantastic. They’re coming together on their own and they’re a fun bunch. They listen, they’re coachable, so we’re looking for improvement each and every week. It’s going in the right direction.” The team is carrying 24 players, but if they can improve on that, they will do it. “We’re happy with who we have now and we’re keen to work with them to get better,” Dubas said. This weekend, the Bears will

Figure skating takes more than a triple axel By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News – They may be one of the smaller skate clubs in the area, but they certainly pack a punch when it comes to training figure skaters. The Athens Figure Skating Club has for the past seven years offered club members and area figure skaters the seminars led by the likes of Doug Leigh, Lee Barkell, Jennifer Robinson, Joey Russell, and Elvis Stojko. This year it was Kurt Browning. “Although we’re a small club we like to run like a big club,” said Gib Kent, president of the Athens Figure Skating Club. The seminars started when a group of the club’s skaters attended a seminar in Barrie, Ont. “They were so enthused when they got back that we decided we should bring seminars to our area,” said Kent. This year’s seminar was a two-day event with two on-ice sessions each day with Browning, two off-ice dance sessions with dance instructor and choreographer Diego Arvelo, another two off-ice sessions with the club’s resident fitness trainer Desirae Heine, herself a

former skater. Those hands-on sessions were also supported by an off-ice session with Ellie Steele, a sports nutritionist and an off-ice report card and grade of execution training session with Skate Canada Judge Rhonda Vanderveem. Charming, animated and clearly enjoying his work, Browning’s sessions were surprisingly less focused on technique. “I want to change the way skating is taught,” said Browning, “My seminars are not about trying to change the world technically, I’m just passing through to them that they’re special. I challenge them to realize that skating has the potential to be really interesting.” Browning said he would like to see figure skating instruction include a lot more creativity and music appreciation - not at the expense of technical skill but alongside the athleticism. His vision is one that Arvelo embraces wholeheartedly “I focus on rhythmic time,” said Arvelo. “If you want to be a performer, I say take a risk. It’s not about being technically correct, but about selling it.” Their mission is to encourage confi-

dence, joy and creativity in the young athletes. “Kurt was really fun, we did all this stuff about music and we had to feel the music,” said Abby Linton, 11, from Athens. “He’s funny, and he (Browning) has time to watch each person individually and he’s very analytical and can tell us what we need to work on just from watching us once,” said Karey Gaudet, 15 who has been skating for 10 years. Meanwhile, Arvelo’s off-ice sessions were loud, animated and very well received. “He’s a lot like Kurt; he’s very funny and he’s teaching a lot of dance moves,” said Ivie Smith, 11, from Athens. “He makes it easy but really quick.” The clinics are held every year and the club goes out of its way to make the seminars affordable for all participants. “Our goal is just to break even, and we try to make the two day seminars reasonable. All the food that’s provided for the instructors and student lunches and snacks is donated by parents and volunteers, which helps a lot,” said Kent.

Blair and Son was the generous sponsor of the Sept. 5 edition of the Thursday Night Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Twilight, offering a burgeoning prize table on what was a beautiful, if chilly, night for golf. The format was scramble and the team of John McKenney, Dave McKenney, Steve James, Rod Hunt, Mike Koziel, and Rick Wiseman were in Closing form, posting the low A Division score of 30 on the front nine. Bruno Patti, Al Ryan, Don Ross, Ray Blair, Bob James, and Curry Wood were only one stroke back, securing the B Division title. This is a testament to just how far the pharmaceutical industry has come. On the back side, it was Seth Baker, Jimi Leach, Evan Jefferys,

and Alex Jefferys who hoisted the A Division trophy with a score of 28. These young guns are fast becoming the group to beat, but can they get it done at the Closing? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to wait and see. Denis Routhier and his group of anonymous unknowns (Denisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name was the only one listed on the results I received) shot a 32 to win the B Division. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible Denis was playing with a group of his friends in the Witness Protection Program. The Roosteraunt closest-to-thepin prizes went to John McKenney and Matt Wallace for their tee shots on holes 3 and 14. Going back to school must have fine tuned their senses (or numbed them). Greg â&#x20AC;&#x153;Champâ&#x20AC;? Hull and Alex Jefferys took home the Burns Jew-

ellers bling for hitting their approach shots tight on holes 9 and 15. I will now go directly to the next paragraph without commenting. Better, Greg? The Town and Country Chrysler longest drives were blasted by Nate Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill and Roy Leach on holes 1 and 17. Norm Devine and (gulp) Greg Hull sunk the Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Furniture longest putts on holes 10 and 6. Finally, John Strickland was the lucky 50/50 prize winner, and Roger Cooke took home the bottle of Rockyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Quarter Panel Parfait. Thanks to Blair and Son for a huge prize table and to all who came out to play. See you next week, and remember: the Closing is only two weeks away!

Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Obsessed With Golf trivia question: Bobby Jones called Gene Sarazenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last 28 holes at Fresh Meadows â&#x20AC;&#x153;the finest competitive exhibition on record.â&#x20AC;?

News – A prolific writer, Smiths Falls resident Eleanor Glenn is embarking on an ambitious project to document certain businesses in town. The Business Barons, as the project has been named, will celebrate continuous commerce in Smiths Falls according to Glenn. “I guess I’m at that time in my life, when I can give back to the community, and this would be such positive publicity for the town,” said Glenn. The book isn’t going to be a history book as such she stresses, but more of a human-interest take on businesses that have been in operation for several decades and are unique to the town. The entire project will be produced in Smiths Falls according to Glenn. Once written, the book will be printed at Impression Printing, bound at Smiths Falls Bookbinding, and cover-art and photography will be produced by Smiths Falls native Ashley Haining. Originally Glenn had intended to limit the scope of the book to the downtown core – just four blocks to the east and west of Beckwith. “I suggested that there were a few more businesses that met her criteria beyond the core that might be interesting to include,” said Mayor DenPhoto by HOWAIDA SOROUR nis Staples. Glenn agreed, and expanded the Writer Eleanor Glenn, is writing a book about long-runcoverage to include all businesses ning Smiths Falls businesses with the idea of promoting in Smiths Falls that meet her param- the town’s unique flavour.

Blood donors invited to next clinic Sept. 12 Events – Smiths Falls new donors are being sought for the upcoming Smiths Falls Blood Donor Clinic. The upcoming Blood Donor Clinic on Thursday, Sept. 12 at the Smiths Falls Civitan Hall from 1 to 4 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m. still needs to fill 60 appointment slots in order to reach its goal of collecting 115 donations of blood. In order to do this, Canadian Blood Services need new donors in the Smiths Falls area to take up the cause and make a commitment to give blood. There are currently 413,000 active blood donors in Canada - that is, they have donated at least once in the past 12 months.

For this year (2013/14) we need to recruit approximately 90,000 new donors. By 2015, that number will grow to 100,000 new donors annually as the Canadian population ages and some of our loyal donors may be users of blood products. By 2015, we will need to continue to grow our overall donor base. So to meet Canada’s future blood needs we must encourage more Canadians to become regular blood donors now. We also need to focus on turning new and current donors into lifelong donors in order to continue to meet the needs of Canadian hospital patients. “There are many benefits to having a larger donor-base,” says com-

munity development coordinator, Jennifer Heale. “It allows us to better align our blood supply with the needs of our local hospital customers, it means we can call on current donors less often and it helps us to better manage seasonal collection volatility such as what we saw this past summer.” Residents of Smiths Falls, both new and returning donors are asked to please call 1-888-2-DONATE or visit www.blood.ca to book an appointment to give blood.

The last cruise night of the season was held on Tuesday Sept. 3. Organized by the Rideau Winery and Dawn’s Closet, the event’s goal was to attract traffic into the downtown area during weeknights and raise awareness for and support local charities. “We raised approximately $2,000 for charities,” said John Maloney, co-proprietor Rideau Winery.

Wick Witch Candle Co. crafts up fragrant creations in Merrickville Business – Rather than the eye of newt and bat whiskers found in a traditional witches’ brew, a new sorceress in Merrickville is cooking up a different combination using fragrant oils and soy wax. Lianne Kulp-Aultman is the face behind Wick Witch Candle Co., which recently opened a new location in the heart of Merrickville within the historic Aaron Merrick building at 108 St. Lawrence Street. The block also houses the Yellow Canoe Café, Mirick’s Landing Country Store and Unraveled. Previously situated in Perth from May until August of this year, she made the move to the small village on Aug. 26. Wick Witch Candle Co. specializes in producing small batches of hand-poured 100 per cent all natural soy wax candles whose fragrant concoctions are an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional candles, right down to the stylish reusable containers. A creative soul who enjoys refinishing antique furniture and thrift shopping, this business seems like anything but a job to Kulp-Aultman. “It’s arts and crafts every day for work and that’s not work at all,” she commented. No stranger to Merrickville, having called it home a few years back, Kulp-Aultman jumped at the chance to return. “This space became available and I thought it would be a great opportunity to have a lot more exposure and traffic,” she said during a recent interview. “The locals in Perth were so supportive but I was missing out on tourist traffic from the main streets. It was too secluded a location.” And she has been welcomed back with open arms. “The reception has been good so far. Word is getting out and it’s still pretty new, but all of the

One of the newest businesses to open in Merrickville is Wick Witch Candle Co., which specializes in 100 per cent, all natural soy candles. Owned by Lianne Kulp-Aultman, the store is nestled within the historic Aaron Merrick building in the village. Above, Kulp-Aultman displays her eco-chic teacup candles. Above right, the interior of the shop transports customers into a vintage setting. businesses in the building have been really supportive as well,” KulpAultman remarked. Stepping into Wick Witch’s intimate boutique, customers are immediately transported into a vintage

setting, complete with whimsical lighting antique fixtures which proudly display the lovingly crafted candles, available in 14-ounce apothecary style, eight-ounce rustic mason, six-pack tealights and

flameless wax melters, as well as individual votives. One also can’t miss the wall of antique teacups in store, one of the most unique aspects to Wick Witch. Due to the low burning point of soy wax, the fine bone china of the treasured teacups makes the perfect vessel for an elegant candle. KulpAultman offers pre-made up-cycled teacup candles or clients can bring in their own (or a treasured jar) and have it paired with their favourite smell. “I like doing (custom candles) in a customer’s favourite teacup, jar or container because it personalizes it. I think that people also enjoy being able to interact with the crafter making the product,” KulpAultman stated. “It’s not from some big warehouse, you can see it being made onsite and it’s positive for the environment.” Those teacups also take on another life as a garden candle on a copper tube, which can also be purchased in store. Kulp-Aultman uses a natural citronella scent to keep bugs at bay and once it has finished

burning, the cup can be wiped clean with soapy water and transforms into a bird feeder. Kulp-Aultman said she has perfected an abundance of 21 scents and there’s something for everyone. There’s no question that the bestselling fragrance is Wick Witch’s signature Bad Witch, a sensual and spellbinding aroma featuring patchouli, sandalwood, musk, amber and sage, mixed with the fruity clementine and mango. “I have to pour Bad Witch almost every day to keep up with demand,” she said. Its sister scent is the lighter Good Witch, a romantic infusion of citrus tones, violet flower and sweet grass. Other popular fragrances include Ginger Lime, Clementine & Green Tea, Woodland Willow, Maple Sugar, Orange Pekoe, Warm Vanilla Sugar and Minty Green. She recently unveiled her fall 2013 scents: Chutney Spice, featuring pumpkin, apple and clove; Ginger Nutmeg, reminiscent of a See WICK WITCH page 38

Long road In six years, the Toledo native has come a long way from making candles just a few short blocks away on Lewis Street to opening her own business. “I was selling candles off my front porch on the weekends when I lived here in Merrickville,” Kulp-Aultman commented. “I’ve had people come up to me and say that they’d been searching for me and can’t believe that I’m back in Merrickville.” Her passion for soy candles developed while working as a flight attendant with Zoom Airlines. “When I was flying around with Zoom, I fell in love with a brand on the west coast and when I came back to Ontario, I couldn’t find it or anything like it,” she recalled. So she did the next best thing and decided to make her own. “I started by ordering five pounds of (soy) wax at a time, experimenting and trying to make my own, now I’m up to ordering 500!” She decided to turn it into a business when, after six years with the company, Zoom went

While taking small business courses, perfecting her scents, candle blends and packaging, Kulp-Aultman was a regular on the local craft show circuit. “You make a lot of bad candles before you make a lot of good ones,” she joked. She has a passion for the candle making process and providing a product that is also environmentally responsible was important to her. There are many benefits to choosing soy candles, she pointed out. “I really like that soy is clean burning, lasts twice as long and is from a sustainable, renew-

able resource,” Kulp-Aultman explained. “The oils, wicks, everything is all natural and the candles are dye-free. There are no scary ingredients that you can’t pronounce.” “There’s the education aspect too. People still aren’t sold on soy because they don’t know the benefits of soy over traditional paraffin wax,” she added. “I’m trying to change that.” Wick Witch Candle Co. is open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.wickwitch.com or look for their page on Facebook.

News – With a busy 2013 Labour Day Long weekend behind them, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) reported three fatalities in OPP jurisdiction over the weekend, but they are relieved to see a steady decline in the number of Labour Day weekend traffic deaths. As part of their ongoing efforts to save lives, the OPP stepped up enforcement on highways, waterways and trails over the weekend and particular attention was being cast on motorists who were caught driving distracted. Sadly, a 16-year-old male died after being struck by a motor vehicle while he was skateboarding. A 41-yearold woman died in a motor vehicle collision after being ejected from the vehicle and another man (age unconfirmed) died when he lost control of his off-road ve-

hicle (ORV). “Despite the tragic loss of three lives this past weekend, when we look at the last five years, I am encouraged to see a 23 per cent decline in Labour Day weekend fatal road crashes in OPP jurisdiction and a 100 per cent drop in marine fatalities on OPP policed waterways,” said Chief Superintendent Don, Bell, Commander, OPP Highway Safety Division. “In contrast, Labour Day weekend ORV fatalities are up 25 per cent over the same five-year period and I encourage the ORV community to work with the OPP to reduce these numbers,” added Bell. “It was disappointing to see distracted drivers continue to pose a risk to road users this past weekend, with our officers laying 397 distracted driving charges compared to

107 impaired driving charges,” said Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey, Provincial Commander, Traffic Safety and Operational Support. According to Beechey, aggressive driving continues to be a significant problem on long weekends and the Labour Day weekend was no exception with 6,078 speeding charges and 64 street racing charges being laid (for driving 50 km/h or more over the posted speed limit). Various other charges were laid, including 535 seat belt charges and a total of 87 Warn Range suspensions were issued to drivers with a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) in the 0.05 to 0.08 range (or 50 to 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood). Submitted by the Ontario Provincial Police.

St. John Ambulance announces ‘Caring for Our Community’ capital campaign The ‘Caring for Our Community’ campaign will have an official launch on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 2014 with a celebratory breakfast at CJ’s Banquet Hall in Brockville. In the next five months, preparation and planning for this campaign launch will take place. The chair of the ‘Caring for Our Community’ campaign is Richard M. Dumbrille of Maitland. He is joined on the campaign team by Sandra Lawn (Prescott); Craig McQuitty (retired Colonel – Canadian Forces, Ottawa, ON); Jim Fairfield (Brockville); Doug Labron (Brockville); and Margaret Wicklum (Brockville); with Jodi Wallace (St. John office administrator) and David Dargie (campaign coordinator) as support staff. “We have a strong campaign team that will be supplemented by the members of our brigade and our many friends and supporters throughout Leeds-Grenville and Lanark counties,” said Dargie. “We will be announcing our honourary R0012224644_0725

News – Jeff Shaver, (retired Lieutenant Colonel – Canadian Forces and former Commanding Officer of the Brockville Rifles), who is chair of the board of directors for the St. John Ambulance Branch of Leeds-Grenville & Lanark announced Sept. 6 that preliminary work has begun on a $350,000 capital campaign that will run from February 2014 to September 2014. The ‘Caring for Our Community’ capital campaign has a goal of raising $350,000 to be used for dissolving the current mortgage on St. John House and building an enclosure on the Abbott Street property to protect the brigade’s service vehicles from inclement weather. “By eliminating the debt on our home base – St. John House in Brockville, we will free up resources that can then be used for our operating costs,” Shaver stated. “Similarly, our building project will help our service vehicles be better prepared for deployment during the winter months and help to ensure a longer life for the vehicles.” Since 1959 the St. John Ambulance Brigade has been caring for the LeedsGrenville & Lanark communities. St. John Ambulance is a volunteer organization that receives no direct government funding. The local brigade has been honoured provincially two years in a row for their volunteer efforts, leading all Ontario St. John Ambulance branches in the number of volunteer hours per person. The local brigade provides: First Aid, CPR & AED training; medical first response services; therapy dog services; youth services; and car seat safety services. Shaver had previously announced that David Dargie has been appointed as campaign coordinator for the ‘Caring for Our Community’ capital campaign. “David Dargie has a deep history of fundraising in the local area, as well assuming leadership roles in large events such as the Ontario Senior Games, the Canada 55+ Games and The Great Waterway Classic,” Shaver observed. “His extensive network of people and organizations, plus his work in the local media as host of several cable television programs, will help raise our profile in the local communities.”

At the Valentine’s Day launch, we will reveal plans for a large scale event that will give many people a chance to enjoy themselves and in turn help support our capital campaign. Many opportunities to get in involved in our campaign will be offered to our local communities. Watch for more announcements later this fall!” Submitted by the St. John Ambulance Branch of Leeds-Grenville & Lanark.

Studio Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Old Love offers challenges to actors and laughter to audience edy couching a thought-provoking message about the human condition. As Tennant puts it, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I like most about this play is how genuinely it reflects some relationships. I hope people laugh at the humour, but also walk away with a different perspective as to someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationships.â&#x20AC;? As for Grey Masson who plays Bud, he has his own reasons for liking this play. He says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very funny, very touching â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I get to kiss a girl.â&#x20AC;? Old Love runs Sept. 12, 13, 14, 20 and 21 at 8 p.m. with matinees Sept. 15 and 22 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance, from the Book Nook in Perth, $22 at the door or at Tickets Please (credit cards accepted).

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever done any acting, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know it is as demanding art. On top of memorizing pages of lines, the actor must put his own personality aside and try and inhabit the skin of another person for several hours. Not an easy undertaking. So imagine what it is like for the actors in the Perth Studio Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening production of Old Love who must be two or more characters during the course of one play. On the surface, this story by Norm Foster seems straightforward enough. Bud meets Molly, the bossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, falls in love with her, but for 25 years is forced to worship from afar. He marries, but is eventually divorced. Then Mollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband dies and the door is open for Bud to renew his romantic pursuit. Seems like an uncomplicated plot. But hey, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking Norm Foster here, the playwright whose quirky sense of humour has made him a favourite of theatre companies and audiences across Canada and the US. The story is told through a series of flashbacks, meaning we see Bud and Molly at various ages along with a parade of characters from their past: Arthur, Mollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now dead husband; Kitty, his ex-wife; Arthur Jr., his son; Kendra, Arthur Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife; a sarcastic secretary, and three girlfriends from Budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post marital past. So where does Foster start Budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renewed pursuit of Mollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affection? Why Arthurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral, of course. Foster allows the cast to be made up of two, four or seven actors. Veteran director David Parry has opted to use four actors. Grey Masson plays Bud Mitchell, who used to work for Arthur until Arthur sold the company. Bud stayed on and is now the boss of the company. Jennifer Pfizer plays Molly Graham, Arthurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, now pursued by Bud. Lucas Tennant plays Arthur, Mollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philandering husband, and also, Arthur Jr., Arthur and Mollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, a shy fellow, married to Kendra. While Juli Heney doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play one of the main characters, she makes up for it in quantity and variety of minor characters. She plays not only Kitty, Budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambitious, social-climbing wife, but Kendra, Arthur Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s domineering wife; Shirley, Arthurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secretary; and Claire, Delores and Sandra, Budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriends. A challenge? Definitely. Says Jenny Pfitzer who plays Molly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Depicting

The Studio Theatre in Perth is getting set for its opening production of the season, Norm Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Old Love, which will run from Sept. 12, 13, 14, 20 and 21 at 8 p.m. with matinees on Sept. 15 and 22 at 2 p.m. Above, Lucas Tennant and Juli Heney rehearse a scene. the passage of time clearly and credibly is as interesting as it is challenging. Over a span of over 30 years, we will see Molly and her relationships evolve as the various vignettes are played out. She will run through a virtual rainbow of emotions and attitudes. She will be happy, sad, sarcastic, wistful, scared, brash, sardonic, angry, caustic and gentle... to name but a few.â&#x20AC;? The others agree. Lucas Tennant (Arthur and Arthur Jr.) finds the change in personality of his characters particularly challenging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One is

a self obsessed business tycoon who believes heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suave but really itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his money that makes him desirable,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the second character is so much a push over he has to ask others what it is he should be feeling. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredible fun to explore the depths each one will sink to as they interact with others. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually looking forward to being hated as the first character,â&#x20AC;? Tennant added. Like most Foster plays Old Love is a delightful mixture of hilarious com-

Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam to visit Hawkesbury Harley dealership Sept. 14 By THERESA FRITZ theresa.fritz@metroland.com

Community – It will be 50 shades of anarchy in Hawkesbury Sept. 1415. That’s when Charlie Hunnam, star of the FX television show Sons of Anarchy and newly named to play Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of E.L. James 50 Shades of Grey, visits Goulet Motorsports HarleyDavidson in the eastern Ontario community. Hunnam’s first time visit to the community follows sold-out visits from former Sons cast member Ryan Hurst (Opie) in March and current cast member Tommy Flannagan (Chibs) in June. Hunnam, 33, will be at Goulet Motorsports Sept. 14 from 5-10 p.m. for a meet and greet, autograph signing and dinner under a big tent outdoors. The cast visits to Hawkesbury are a partnership between Goulet Motorsports and Full Throttle Events. Full Throttle is a promotions company based in Lachute, Que. organizing exclusive meet and greet events with stars of the show. “It was an idea that I had when I first met the cast (of Sons of Anarchy) in Texas…they were excited about it,” explained John Younkie of Full Throttle Events. “And then we expanded it nationally.

Sons of Anarchy start Charlie Hunnam will be meeting fans at Goulet Motorsports in Hawkesbury Sept. 14 then he and two other castmates will be leading a fall motorcycle ride Sept. 15. VIP meet and greets expanded to other Harley dealerships across Canada. And the events attract patrons willing to pay anywhere from $125 to $250 for the chance to rub shoulders with their favourite television outlaws. “We have nothing but great reaction to these events,” Younkie said.

The events draw not only local residents, but also fans from Ottawa, Montreal and beyond. “They are a huge draw. This time, we have people coming from New York, we have a couple coming from Alaska, a couple from Boston…it is quite something,” Younkie com-

As a special add on, Hunnam’s castmates Flannagan and Mark Boone (Bobby) will join him Sept. 15 for a fall motorocycle ride. The ride cost $25 and will include a breakfast. Kickstands will go up at 11 a.m. for the scenic ride with the three actors riding as grand marshals for the event. After the ride, participants as well as the public are welcome back to Goulet Motorsports for lunch. The event will be licensed and music will be provided by Texarillo. Around 1 p.m. Hunnam and company will be available for photo sessions on a first come, first served basis. Younkie said this will mark the first time the three Sons stars are in Canada at the same time. The sixth season of Sons of Anarchy begins Sept. 10 with Hunnam reprising his role of Jax Teller, president of the outlaw motorcycle club’s Redwood Original Chapter. Boone is the vice-president of the club and Flannagan is the sergeant-at-arms. “We expected around 125 or 150 to take part in the ride. We have 580 people taking part,” he said. “All three (actors) will be onstage. Imagine the president, VP and secretary of SAMCRO (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original) will be together. They will be there until 4 p.m. and then we have to get them back to the airport.” Goulet Motorsports is located at 189 John St. in Hawkesbury.

September is ‘Adopt a Buddy’ month at Lanark Animal Welfare Society Lifestyle – September is “Adopt a Buddy” month. For the month of September, when you adopt a cat and wish to adopt a second cat, the adoption fee is waived for the second cat. The new school year has begun and our humane education educator Beth Searle is hard at work contacting local schools to set up age/grade appropriate humane education programs. This marks her second year in the community with her tailored program. The first year was a big success and we hope to have even more success this year with Beth and her program that teaches respect for animals and the importance of responsible pet ownership. (Please see an upcoming issue for the full story). LAWS is organizing a Fall Clean Up weekend for Saturday, Oct. 5 and Sunday, Oct. 6. Do you have skills in carpentry or plumbing? Up for some painting and cleaning? The shelter is in need of some much needed repairs and clean-up and we could use your help. We’ve set up a special page on our website just for this effort. Visit www.lanarkanimals.ca/fallcleanup.html for more details. Please check for details on our supply wish list and contact the cleanup coordinator at fall-cleanup@lanarkanimals. ca if you would like to sign-up to volunteer or donate items from our supply wish list! Help us improve the environment for the staff, volunteers, and the animals. Volunteers needed LAWS is in need for volunteers who love animals to help with the cats. The following opportunities are available: • Morning cat room assistant: three hours once a week, 8 to 11 a.m. cat shift; where the most cat cage and room cleaning help is required. • Afternoon cat room assistant: three hours once a week, 1 to 4 p.m.; tidying cat rooms, laundry, dishes, dusting, grooming and socializing, etc. Please contact the shelter or download the adoption forms off our website: www. lanarkanimals.ca. Dog walking volunteers are also needed. Several LAWS cats have been at the Pet Valu stores for a long time. Although they’re all wonderful adult cats, kittens primarily get adopted first. Now that kitten season is almost past, these older cats are in need of homes too.

This Week’s Pets know that he’s there. He likes cuddles but not too much. He’s a lovely guy that has some food allergies. He will have to be on special diet food for, likely, the rest of his life. Wilde loves to get a chance to show anyone

with a bit of patience who he really is. Like all our other cats, all he wants is a loving home to live in. LAWS (Lanark Animal Welfare Society) is located on Glenview Road, just off Highway 43, about 2 kilometres west of Smiths Falls. The shelter is open Monday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Write to us at P.O. Box 156, Smiths Falls, ON K7A 4T1 or contact us at 613-283-9308,

Rebuilt 1949 Hudson street rod on the road again! Lifestyle – Our phone rang. It was Eugene Barna calling to let me know that his son Peter was on his way from his home in Atikokan, Ontario, to Leamington, where he grew up, and he was driving his newly completed 1949 Hudson street rod – and would I like to see it when he rolls into town? “Yes! Yes! Yes!” was my reply. I had met Peter about three years ago when he rolled into town behind the wheel of his yellow street-rodded 1934 International pickup truck. At that time, he mentioned that he was working on a 1949 Hudson, and I said I hope to see it down here someday. That day arrived near the end of June 2013 when I drove over to his parents’ home here in town. The Hudson was parked in the driveway and facing the street. What a beauty! The gleaming Ruby Mica Pearl (’08 Sub-

aru colour), dazzling chrome, and big wide whitewall radial tires made the car look like a picture right out of a glossy magazine. I was treated to a drive around town as Peter told me the story behind the car. Another resident in Atikokan had purchased the car some time ago in Pinawa, Manitoba, a small town northeast of Winnipeg. It had been off the road for several years and was complete but needed a total rebuild. It was the Super Six model and still had its original flathead six engine. Peter purchased it and the fun began. He disassembled the

The body work proceeded and included new inner fenders custom-made with a ’76 Nova front clip. The engine compartment now is a dream to look at. The engine is a 454 big block Chevy with 4-bbl Edelbrock carb and intake. A serpentine belt from Billet connects the alternator, A/C compressor, water pump, and power steering pump to give the engine a superclean design. The master brake cylinder is under the dash to further enhance the clean design of the engine compartment. The trans-

mission is a 700R automatic with a 9-inch Ford rear end from a ’76 Bronco. Peter had to search far and wide for a rear end with the proper width to clear the rear tires and found one near Oshawa. The only piece still missing is the stainless trim for the rear window. With Peter’s perseverance, we know he’ll find it! I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2.

From engine noises to tinting – car counsellor covers variety of topics “Hello Brian, Just an update on something I sent earlier. This past weekend I saw a car, in Orleans, with the driver’s/front passenger’s window so dark that the driver had to put his windows down about 6” so he could make a U-turn. At least he knew he had restricted vision and didn’t just ‘go for it’ like some drivers.” Lorne Facey I don’t know why this is still a grey area in Ontario. In BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia, applying aftermarket tinting to either of the front door windows is illegal. In Manitoba, the law spells out the amount of light that tinting must allow in or out in terms of percentages. These regulations allow less tinting on the front door windows than rear glass. The reasons from these jurisdictions for limiting tint range from reducing vehicle collisions, lowering risks to pedestrians, to improved police officer safety. Tinting is still a very popular option for new and used vehicles alike as drivers appreciate the improvement in air-conditioning performance, reduced glare inside the vehicle, and increased privacy. The Ministry of Transportation regulations leave enforcement pretty much up to the attending officer’s judgement. So there’s really no such thing as ‘Police Approved’ tinting. Until there’s a collective cry for more regulation or an increase in collisions caused by dark tinting, I’m not holding my breath to see things changed here. But if

Lifestyle – “Hi Brian, My 2006 Chevrolet Impala has valve lifters that are making noise. Should I add (an engine oil) supplement or not. It has over 500,000 km on the odometer.” HB If the lifter noise goes away after start up, the hydraulic lifters may be ‘leaking down’ and losing their ability to react to valve-train movement. If the noise is there even after warm up, one or more lifters may be collapsed altogether. Either way, an additive that would thicken the engine oil enough to resolve this, may to more harm than good by blocking small oil passages. At 500,000 km there may be other valve-train components that are causing the noise. There are a variety of additives on parts stores’ shelves that can help a tired engine without increasing the risk of creating a sludge problem. But be aware, there’s no such thing as a mechanic in a can. Excessive valvetrain or upper engine noise usually means something has worn past the point of maximum tolerance and replacing a part(s) is usually the only way to rectify the situation. As this type of job can easily approach or exceed $1,000 it would be wise to consider the vehicle’s overall value before proceeding. Oil additives are relatively cheap and easy to try and if they don’t work out, then an oil change is all it takes to get rid of them. You might want to consider trying one of the high mileage engine oils at your next oil change.

world could you live with enormous protected wetlands on the edge of town, great blue herons on the side of the river, hackberry trees lining the waterfalls, and large tracts of deciduous forest just outside the town? Sounds great. But just what is living in those wetlands and forests? There is much more than just deer and bears. The theme of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public talks is about exactly this â&#x20AC;&#x201C; connecting with and appreciating our natural surroundings and understanding how they are linked to big picture nature conservation. So how did Caroline fall in love with nature and come to connect with Ontario Nature? Discover this, know about nature in your backyard, care about the boreal forest, and forge connections to nature in distant places you may never visit by attending Caroline Schultzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;From Our Backyards to the Boreal Forest and Beyondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 19 at the Almonte United Church (106 Elgin Street). All are welcome ($5 fee for non-members). For further information, please contact MVFNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program chair Cathy Keddy at 613257-3089.

polar bears flying south. But certainly most of the birds are on their way. Geese, grebes, loons, herons, cranes, grosbeaks and blackbirds will be passing through soon. Thus our backyards matter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whether they are measured in square feet or square kilometers. Nature-friendly gardening and land stewardship can provide resting areas for migrating birds and can help pollinators such as native bees and butterflies. We can plant trees, protect our forests, leave the shoreline at the cottage natural, or plant native shrubs to replace lakeside lawns â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there is something each of us can do to make Lanark County better for wildlife. The cumulative effects of such simple actions are very powerful when thousands of people do them. This will help to ensure that Lanark County not only keeps its natural beauty, but increases it in the future. Working to ensure that municipalities have robust natural heritage systems in their Official Plans and opening the doors to the wonders of nature, especially to our youth, are also vital for ensuring that we protect the biodiversity that sustains us. But, our backyards are connected beyond the boreal! Everything we do here in Ontario has an impact beyond our borders. This ranges from the importance of sustaining vital migratory or breeding habitat for birds to minimizing our carbon footprint to sustaining our freshwater systems that are part of the global hydrological cycle. Everything is connected. Imagine, we have responsibilities as global environmental stewards and we should be proud of this. But Ontario has the fourth highest ecological footprint compared with 60 countries around the world. Canada has the eight highest. We need to earn the right to be proud as proactive environmental leaders. Lanark County is a beautiful place to spend the year, but life is always more enjoyable when you know enough about your surroundings to appreciate them. Where else in the

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The goldenrods and asters are turning our roadsides yellow and blue again. The grackles have already left, and the goldfinches are preparing to leave. The bears are fattening up on a bumper crop of acorns. Yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s autumn. And one of the regular events of autumn is the start of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (MVFN) new lecture series, this year entitled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Knowing and Caring Connect Us With Nature.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; MVFN is very fortunate to have an outstanding speaker to start the season. In her presentation, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;From Our Backyards to the Boreal and Beyondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, Caroline Shultz, executive director of Ontario Nature and conservation biologist, will speak about the enormous boreal forest (half of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land area) which is just to our north, how it is connected to our backyards, and how our backyards are connected to nature beyond the boreal. The boreal forest is the land of conifer forest, home of the woodland caribou, and a vast nursery for songbirds and waterfowl. Many of these visit Lanark County each spring, on their way north, and each autumn, on their way back south. Songbirds that breed on the very edge of the tree line near Hudson Bay may very well rest in a tree in your own backyard on their way back to the rain forest for the winter. As well, the boreal forest has vast wetlands â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Hudson Bay lowlands region is one of the ten largest wetlands in the world. Its extensive peatlands store massive amounts of carbon keeping it out of our atmosphere where it could do great damage to our climate. Its vast freshwater ecosystems play a major role in global hydrological cycles. Boreal forest conservation further ensures an abundance of wild forest and freshwater foods and sustainable livelihoods for northern residents. Many of wild the boreal inhabitants are about to move south in the coming month. Not the polar bears or caribou of course. At least, no one in the field naturalists has yet seen flocks of
