Team Brooke fan club Saturday, October 5 was officially declared ‘Brooke Henderson Day’ in Smiths Falls. The ceremony took place at the Memorial Community Centre for a very good reason. Howard Jefferys and John McFadden, two local men who survived a fatal car crash that claimed the lives of their wives just outside of Kemptville in August, were able to watch the ceremony from their room at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital across the street. The crowd gathered around the billboard flashing Henderson’s name took a moment to wave to the two men. The day was declared in Henderson’s honour as a way to celebrate her great accomplishments. Members of Brooke Henderson’s family sported ‘Team Brooke’ T-shirts on Oct. 5. Her littlest fans caught everyone’s attention. From left are Nash Storie, Brooke Henderson and Jordon Drummond.

News – A new day has dawned in the Town of Smiths Falls. The pride and joy of the community, Brooke Henderson, is the first local citizen in Mayor Dennis Staples’ memory to have a day named in their honour. “It’s pretty amazing, unbelievable,” said Henderson, “that the town of Smiths Falls thinks so highly of me.” Henderson, at the tender age of 16, is the top-ranked female amateur golfer in Canada and ranked ninth in the world. She has more trophies on her shelves than most elite athletes do by the age of 30 and not a morsel of conceit. “I’m just trying to improve and get better,” said Henderson. “It’s pretty cool when people come up to you and recognize you.” The fame surrounding Henderson has definitely not affected her mannerisms, which can be attributed to the strong foundation of her family members who back her. Henderson’s father, Dave, said that he is proud of his daughter’s many great accomplishments. “Hard work and determination,” he said when asked what’s been key to Brooke’s progress so far. “She’s a good listener and very athletic. All these things combined into success.” Henderson’s family members sported ‘Team Brooke’ T-shirts last Saturday, Oct. 5, now known as ‘Brooke Henderson Day’ in Smiths Falls, as a show of support. Henderson’s grandfather, Clem, said she is a talented and devoted person. “She makes an excellent ambassador for Smiths Falls,” said Clem. “I am very proud of her and my late wife, Beverly, was very proud of her, too.” Henderson, who was born and raised in Smiths Falls, is amazed by the level of support she’s received from the mayor, council and the townspeople. “The members of the golf club, my school and my teachers have all been extremely support-

ive,” she said. The Grade 11 student at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute said the strength of her golf game lies in her long game – off the tee – as well as her approach shots. “I’m working diligently on putting and chipping,” said Brooke. The highlight of her summer, which was full of great achievements, was winning the Canadian Amateur. “Also, playing in three LPGA golf tournaments and making the cut in two,” said Brooke. Brooke has had to turn down quite a bit of prize money, in order to maintain her amateur status in the golf world. However, she doesn’t golf for the money, but rather the love of the game. “I like my amateur status,” said Henderson. “I get to qualify for scholarships for school by staying an amateur.” She intends to stay among the amateur ranks for at least a couple more years. Her goal is to attend university down the road. “Right now, I’m just looking at my options for school,” she said. “It all depends on the next couple of summers I have in golf. I definitely want to go to school.” Her more immediate goal is to improve her amateur world ranking. “I also want to participate in more LPGA tournaments and have better finishes.” Working on her game During the winter months, Brooke says she will be working on both her physical and mental game. She’ll be working as a member of Canada’s national team for a third year, which will keep her game in good shape. This gives her access to top level coaching and allows her to play in events over the winter. Brooke said she loves the challenges of playing the sport. “I love the competition and friends I’ve been able to make all around the world and in Canada,” she explained. “The challenges it See BROOKE page SF2

Learn about the gift of giving an organ donation at CFUW public meeting Oct. 21 Community – It’s a new season, new members and a vibrant mission for the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW), Perth and District. The CFUW is about to launch its new year with a roster of programs and events to whet the interest of everyone. Our first general meeting on Oct. 21 at the Perth Royal Canadian Legion building, 26 Sherbrooke Street East, 6:30 p.m., is open to the public and features Cheri Barton, busy Vankleek Hill mother of three, and a volunteer with Trillium Gift of Life Foundation. This is a not-for-profit Ontario government agency dedicated to the planning, promotion, coordination and support of organ and tissue donation and transplantation across Ontario. Cheri Barton, through sharing her story, will speak about the importance of being an organ donor. Do you know that in Ontario more than 1,500 people are on the wait list for an organ transplant – 85 per cent of Ontarians are in favor of organ donation yet only 25 per cent have registered their consent to donate? Come

and hear about one of the greatest acts of charity that one can ever make, giving an organ to another human being, saving another’s life. CFUW Perth and District, a women’s organization with local involvement, provincial, national and international affiliation, has the mandate of improving quality education, the status of women, advocating for social justice, human rights and the environment, and the active, meaningful participation in public affairs. It is a highly regarded club where all women from diverse educational backgrounds are welcome to become members, to attend meetings, to join the many different interest groups (from bridge to book groups, gourmet to beginning Spanish and French language groups) and to participate in various volunteer projects. Our major fundraiser is the upcoming Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour, Dec. 7 and 8, showcasing eight unique heritage and modern homes in the area, decked out in full Christmas finery. The house tour supports our education awards granted to assist women of all ages in reaching their educational, career ob-

Submitted photos

The fifth annual Toledo Ride-aThon is set for Saturday, Oct. 19 where area horseback riders can experience some of Kitley’s oldest concession roads and trails, while raising funds to benefit St. Joseph Catholic School and St. Andrew’s United Church, both in Toledo. Above and right, the fall foliage provided a pretty backdrop for riders during last year’s event. cal businesses and organizations will be drawn and this year, Gilligan said Toledo Ride-a-Thon T-shirts will be given to riders on a first come, first serve basis. For more information about the Toledo Ride-a-Thon, to register or print off pledge forms, please visit www.saddleupintoledo.com. Riders who register before Oct. 12 will be entered into an early bird draw to have their $50 registration fee returned to them. The event is open to families, though riders 18 years of age or younger must have written consent from a parent or legal guardian and proof of liability insurance is required. No ATVs will be permitted on the trails. Organizers are hoping for good weather, but the event will proceed rain or shine. “We’ve started trimming the trails and we will be marking them this weekend so we’ll be good to go,” Gilligan concluded.

Community – Take in scenic fall foliage and explore the local countryside on horseback during the fifth annual Toledo Ride-a-Thon Saturday, Oct. 19. The day of riding along some of Kitley’s oldest concession roads and trails serves as a fundraiser for St. Joseph Catholic School and St. Andrew’s United Church, both in Toledo. It is the brainchild of sisters Kelly Brownson and Lee Ann Gilligan, who wanted to create a different type of fundraiser to help out their community. “It’s a unique fundraiser and gives us the opportunity to support the school and churches in a different way,” Gilligan said, noting that last year’s event saw 54 riders participate with some travelling from as far as Kingston. She added that through the efforts of the Toledo Ride-a-Thon, three windows were replaced in the St. Andrew’s church hall last year. The day begins with registration at 10 a.m. The registration site is located just west of Toledo, off of County Road 8, but signs will be posted leading to the area. A bake table will be set up with plenty of sweet treats as well. Riders will depart between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., after which participants will set out on a 25-kilometre route, which will have visible signage and road crossing guards to help riders navigate safely. Along the way, pit stops for cookies and refreshments will also be available. “People will come with their horses and trailers, tack up and ride back through the concession roads and sugar bushes,” Gilligan explained. Those who wish to take part can choose to either collect pledges (minimum of $50) or pay a registration fee of $50. As an added incentive, Gilligan said the rider who brings in the highest amount of pledges over $200 will receive the prize of an ultimate weekend vacation at HorseCountry Campground in Forrester Falls. This includes two nights of camping and fishing in a campsite, with a corral, that can accommodate up to four people and two horses. Also featured in that package is unlimited trail riding, access to Rafters resort and unlimited access to the HorseCountry Campground’s weekend activities. The winner can also take home their choice of a Western headstall and reins or English bridle and reins, courtesy of William Joynt from Joynt Auction Company Ltd.

Shuttles will be available at the end of the Carbine Trail and the Mill of Kintail to return you (and your bike) to High Lonesome. Some areas of the Carbine Trail and High Lonesome are rough terrain suitable for more experienced bikers and hikers. Participants looking for a gentler way to enjoy the day are welcomed to start at the Mill of Kintail where accessible, groomed trails offer a less rugged route. You can choose your route online at www. mmltc.ca or decide at registration. This event has been made possible through Canon’s Take Root Program, presented by Evergreen, a national community tree planting

and greening initiative supported by Canon Canada and led by Evergreen. Take Root is in support of National Tree Day. MMLTC has also received a Canon PowerPoint camera which will be used to record this event. To reach High Lonesome Nature Reserve from County Road 29 in Pakenham village, turn left on Waba

Find your fortune at Oct. 19 Tarot and henna fundraiser to benefit Interval House By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

Community – Learn what the future has in store for you at Angels Roost Organic Spa Saturday, Oct. 19 when a Tarot session and henna decoration fundraiser will take place to benefit Lanark County Interval House (LCIH). Back by popular demand, the event sold out last year with two Tarot readers, Ann Gratton (40 years experience) and Lise Guignard (21 years experience), so Deb Shea and Carolyn Avery will be joining them on Oct. 19. Shea has 20plus years experience as a Tarot reader and has been doing henna decoration for 30 years. Avery also has 30 years under her belt working with henna and has been Tarot reading for five years.

There is no need to book appointments in advance, those interested can walk in, pick their henna tattoo and have their Tarot read between 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event was conceived by Gratton and Avery, who wanted to do something unique to help benefit LCIH. “We have teamed up for several money making events, but both felt strongly that it is equally important to give back to the community,” Gratton remarked. “There are so many needs and Carolyn does lots of community work with her husband Chuck in the Westport area where we live.” Having previously done benefit work for LCIH, Gratton said that positive experience made her realize what organization she wanted this fundraiser to support. All proceeds will

go to support the nonprofit organization. “While living in the Carleton Place area, I was witness to the good work (of LCIH). I came to understand that Interval House was a very important pillar for women and consequently their families in the area, and so I felt that I also wanted to be part of the good work somehow.” With the connection to Halloween, Gratton said Tarot sessions and henna decoration fundraiser is meant to be fun and conjures up the image of witches,” which makes me think of wise women.” Holding the event at Angels Roost is icing on the cake. “To be able to have the event at Angel’s Roost is so amazing,” she continued. “It is a day of taking care of our inner and outer beauty.” Angels Roost own-

er Kathy Blair is also pleased to be a part of the process. “Angels Roost Organic Spa is happy to support such an important organization in the community,” she stated. “We are excited to host the Tarot and henna reading on Oct. 19. It has been a great success in the past and we encourage the community to join us…” Heather Whiting, LCIH’s fundraising and volunteer coordinator, said the afternoon is a fun outing for groups of friends and last year’s event raised approximately $600 for Interval House programs. “…When someone like Ann contacts us to say she wants to bring her friends together to offer something fun and unique like Tarot readings and henna decorations, it offers an incredible boost to the (LCIH)

staff also,” she noted. “It reminds us that other people believe in our work and believe in the women. So much so, that they want to take it on themselves to raise money to help them. To me, that’s as rejuvenating as one of Kathy’s luxury spa treatments. It’s wonderful.” Whiting also said that LCIH is always grateful to people like Gratton for their support. “I’m not sure how to express how deeply pleased and grateful we are when a community member calls to say that she and her friends want to do something special to raise funds for our programs,” she said. “With so many worthy charities out there, it can be tough for a small local agency to shine brightly enough to be noticed. We don’t have a large staff or a national

umbrella organization… Everyday we try to think up new and creative ways to let people know that our agency is here and that our counsellors are working hard in their community helping their neighbours.” The Tarot sessions and

henna decoration fundraiser runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19. For more information, visit www.lcih.com or call LCIH at 613-257-3469 ext. 27. Angels Roost Organic Spa is located on the 7th Line of Beckwith.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Wind energy a sensible choice for Ontarians, says association DEAR EDITOR: Editor’s note: The following letter is in response to an article from the office of Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark (‘Clark criticizes government’s energy policies’) which ran in the Sept. 19 edition of the newspaper. It is standard practice for Ontario’s Independent Electricity Operator (IESO) to ask electricity generators to reduce their output during times of low electricity demand. Nuclear, gas and now wind operators alike, have contracts that guarantee power purchases with commitments to pay at reduced rates during times when their electricity is not required. Ontarians are paying more for electricity after years of underinvestment in both new generation and infrastructure. Numerous analyses have demonstrated that wind energy has made only a minor contribution to price increases to date.

A Power Advisory LLC report commissioned by the Canadian Wind Energy Association found that wind energy accounted for only about five per cent of the increase to the total customer bill between 2009 and 2012. As Ontario reviews its long-term energy plan, we are confident it will incorporate options that will create an electricity system that is sustainable, reliable and flexible while ensuring that ratepayers have access to affordable energy. Wind energy is a sensible choice because it will deliver power to Ontarians at a price that is cost-competitive with, or cheaper, than other conventional sources – all while protecting our environment. Brandy Giannetta, Ontario regional director Canadian Wind Energy Association

COMMENTARY Experience live theatre Editorials – The beauty of fall foliage is at its peak right now and so is the talent inside the area’s local theatres. Most theatre groups throughout Lanark, Leeds and Grenville have kicked off their fall seasons and there is something for everyone to enjoy. With its new elevator installed, Perth’s Studio Theatre is looking forward to a busy fall and are fresh from a successful production of Norm Foster’s Old Love. Their next run will be An Evening of One Act Plays, premiering Oct. 24. Just down the road on Craig Street, BarnDoor Productions is anticipating their fall lineup at the Full Circle Theatre. They will launch an adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s famous spy film, 39 Steps, on Oct. 18, which will run until Oct. 27. The Mississippi Mudds Youth Theatre have also been hard at work perfecting their version of the Shakespeare classic, Othello. Directed by Mark Piper, the show takes over the Carleton Place Town Hall Auditorium Oct. 20, 25 and 26. Theatre Night in Merrickville are gearing up for a busy autumn as well as hosts of the Eastern Ontario Drama League’s One Act Festival Nov. 8 to 10, which will feature eight plays. Nearby, the Kemptville Players Inc. will present Double Confusion, featuring two one-act plays (The Death of Me by Norm Foster and Box Office by Claudia Haas) Nov. 15 to 17 at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. And the Smiths Falls Community Theatre is fresh from presenting its trio of one-act plays. There are countless hours, not to mention an abundance of volunteers, spent producing these plays and while those involved do it primarily because of their love for acting and performing, but also for their communities to enjoy. This fall, why not experience what’s in your own backyard?

Making sauerkraut was a treasured family tradition Lifestyle – The big wood barrel had been scrubbed with hot soapy water and a brush, and put outside on the back stoop to sun-dry. It would take days for it to be as dry as a bone. And if the sky looked like a drop of rain might come down, the barrel was rolled into the summer kitchen until the threat was over. Dozens of big fat cabbages were already in the summer kitchen on a table Father had put together by putting three wide planks on two sawhorses. A new bag of coarse salt had been bought at Briscoe’s General Store. We were ready. This would be a Saturday night when there would be no going off to a house party, or having neighbours in for a game of cards. This night would be reserved for making sauerkraut, and the whole family would be doing the job. I had mixed feelings about the night we made the sauerkraut. Certainly when the whole family was working together brought me special joy, but being the youngest of the five children, my job was menial at best. All I was allowed to do was bring in more cabbages from the summer kitchen as they were needed. The old pine table had been stripped of its red and white, well-worn oilcloth,

and the wood scrubbed clean by my sister Audrey. All the chairs and benches had been moved back to the wall...there would be no sitting that night! Hands had been scrubbed with a brush and hot soapy water, and both Father and Mother wore long white pinny aprons for the job. When the work night started, on the table close to one end, was the cabbage slicer. Father said it had been made by his great-great grandfather when he settled in Northcote generations ago. It looked like a long narrow wood box with no lid. And in the very bottom of the box was a sharp blade that Father said could be deadly if you accidentally ran your hand over it. The well-scrubbed barrel had been rolled into the kitchen right after supper, and it sat close to the table at one end. Straddling the barrel was the wood box with the deadly blade, which also, of course, had been scrubbed within an inch of its life. Now it was time to bring in the cabbages from the summer kitchen...not all at once, of course. They were kept out as long as possible, so that when they were finally shredded, they would still be well chilled from being outside of the steaming hot kitchen.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

And that’s when I figured into the picture. It was my job to bring in the cabbages when Father announced he was ready for another one. This meant I was constantly running back and forth…inside, outside. And it meant I missed seeing most of the actual job of shredding the big pale green heads, which didn’t please me in the least. But back in those days, a young daughter did exactly what she was told. There was no negotiating with a brother or sister to change jobs! It was Emerson and Everett’s job to peel off the very top leafs of each head of cabbage. Not one leaf more than the very top ones, either. That would be sheer waste. Beside the table were two huge baskets, and into these baskets went the pulled-off outer leafs. They wouldn’t be tossed out in the back yard, where garbage for which there could be News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Howaida Sorour, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Kelly Kent, Jennifer Westendorp DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-284-0124 ,ext. 27 CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Judy Michaelis Email: jmichaelis@perfprint.ca Lee Ann Gilligan Email: lgilligan@perfprint.ca Jennifer Coughlin Email: jcoughlin@perfprint.ca

found no other use (and that was very little indeed) was tossed. No, these baskets of leafs would go to feed the pigs. And this is where my youngest brother Earl came into the picture. It was his job to tear down the discarded cabbage into smaller pieces. That way, Father said, it was easier to make the feed go farther when it was finally tossed out to the pigs, mixed with other slop. My sister Audrey sliced off the very end of the cabbage with a sharp butcher knife, and that too was tossed into the baskets by the table. And then that head was passed on to Father. With spotlessly clean hands Father fed the head of cabbage into the wood box straddling the barrel, running it back and forth over the sharp blade, letting the finely shredded cabbage fall into the barrel. Mother used a block of wood attached to a short pole (Father’s creation), and every so often Father stopped shedding, as mother gently packed down the cabbage. Everything would come to a halt, and with a measuring cup dipped into the bag of coarse salt, Mother would spread in a goodly amount. For some reason I was never able to fathom, the number of shredded cabADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

bages was always enough to exactly fill the barrel! Not right to the top, of course, but with about 10 inches of what Father called ‘breathing room’. The very top of the shredded cabbage got the final toss of coarse salt, and then a well-scrubbed stone...the same one we used every year, was the last addition to the barrel. The stone would make sure the cabbage was on a steady pack-down. It took Father and three brothers to roll the barrel out to the summer kitchen. Of course, the sauerkraut would not be ready to eat until it had been well fermented, and was always best when the blasts of winter froze it solid. By then, which is something else I had trouble figuring out, the cabbage, turned to sauerkraut, had settled down into the barrel, and was considerably less, I thought than what had been put in that night in our kitchen. For days afterwards, I would sneak a peek into the barrel and would be met with the sharp tang of the fermenting cabbage. I would have a feeling of contentment come over me. Because now I knew, deep in that awful Depression, it didn’t matter how bad things got, we would at least have sauerkraut to put on the supper table. • 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.

Studio Theatre’s new elevator opens doors to theatre for everyone Arts – Oh, those darn 19 steps... Ask anyone about Perth’s Studio Theatre and the subject of the stairs is bound to come up eventually. For most, hoofing it up the steps to the second floor theatre was a small price to pay for great community entertainment. However, for people who rely on a walker or a wheelchair, the stairs might as well have been the Great Wall of China; they were an impassable barrier preventing them from enjoying the theatre’s many plays and concerts. But today, stair-challenged patrons are discovering that those 19 steps have been joined by the single button of a brand new elevator. And audience members at the theatre’s first production of the season, Norm Foster’s Old Love, were quick to give the stylish new conveyance rave reviews. “It will make a big difference to many people!” said Olwen Romana and Sheila Marjorum. “I have a friend who is in a wheelchair, so she’ll be able to come now.” Another happy rider stated, “We’ve been many times, but health restrictions now prevent us from climbing the stairs. We’re

very glad we finally got the elevator.” And Margo Fulford Clay, who was part of a large group enjoying Old Love, said, “It’s nice to be able to take the elevator. We’ll come all the time now!” Enthusiastic comments like that are proof that the Studio Theatre’s Give Our Theatre a Lift campaign was well worth the years of fundraising effort. A generous grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation finally enabled the project to go ahead this past spring, and a ribbon cutting ceremony on Sept. 6 officially inaugurated the new elevator. Although the bulk of the renovation is now complete, there are finishing touches still to come, particularly in the new foyer, where a full bar and other enhancements will soon come to life. In fact, there will be a cash bar (beer and wine) set up for the opening night of the Studio Theatre’s next production, An Evening of One Act Plays. So if you’re looking for proof that hard work and commitment can make a big dream come true, look no further than Perth’s little theatre in the Tay Basin.

Mississippi Mudds making a home for Shakespeare in Carleton Place Arts – For the past three years, the teenaged actors in the Mississippi Mudds Youth Theatre have been performing Shakespeare at the Carleton Place Town Hall. In 2011, it was Macbeth, and in 2012, Much Ado About Nothing. This spring, these actors took it down the road to Almonte, performing Hamlet. “Yes, these actors can’t seem to get enough of Shakespeare,“ says director Mark Piper. “I don’t know why so many people think that these plays are inaccessible, or irrelevant. It shocks me that there’s an ongoing debate about whether or not we should teach theatre – or Shakespeare – in schools: you only have to look at how confident, self-possessed, and literate this group of young actors has become.” This October, the group brings another offering to the Carleton Place Town Hall: Othello, the tragic study of manipulative evil, false friendship, and betrayed innocence. A number of veterans of past shows have returned for this production – past audience members will recall the performances of Hayley Fortier, Leah West, Candice Burn, Katie Irvine, Evan Sauve, Lydia Charron, Amber Brendt, Connor Lyon, Jordanne Laforet, and Kate Bains. Levi Albert, Jasmine Colemen and Megan Syme, who were puppeteers in the previous production of Hamlet, have moved on to more dramatic roles in this production. “The returning actors have learned a great deal from their previous experiences – not only the basic technical stuff like using one’s voice, or how to move on stage, but also how to connect emotionally with an audience, and how to take calculated risks with a performance in order to keep them interested,” says Piper. “It’s because, unlike a screen performance, a theatre performance is done with the participation of an audience.” “All the returning actors seem to have acquired that quality of ‘presence’ that actors with experience on the

stage – rather than television or movies – seem to acquire,” he adds. “And over the course of the rehearsals, they have passed it on to the new performers.” New to performing Shakespeare – but not new to the theatre – is Dayna Stone, who is playing the title role. And theatre newcomer Callum Leroy is making his Shakespearean debut as the Jester. As has been the case in past productions, the performers will be playing Othello in the round – surrounded by their audience – with a bare floor as their set, and little in the way of stage dressing or speciallydesigned costumes to distract from the actors’ performances. If you enjoy Shakespeare in the manner in which it was originally presented – surrounded by the audience – with an emphasis on skilled young acting that brings out the majestic language, then you are in for a treat with this October’s Mississippi Mudds Youth Theatre production of Othello. Othello comes to Carleton Place Town Hall Oct. 20, 25, and 26. Tickets will be sold at the Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce Visitor Centre (132 Coleman Street, 613-2571976).

Sweet sounds of Merrickville Jazz Fest back for another year Oct. 17 to 20 akulp@perfprint.ca

Community – The smoky sounds of authentic jazz music will flow throughout Merrickville Oct. 17 to 20 when the Merrickville Jazz Fest returns to the village. Since its inception three years ago, the festival has become increasingly more popular and features 16 different musical acts for people to enjoy at seven locations around the village. According to Peggy Holloway, who is coordinating this year’s event along with Karen Oxorn, the festival has undergone many changes, which started with issuing a call to musicians earlier this spring. “We did that (call for musicians) instead of just asking individual people or have people come to us,” she explained, adding that a panel of five reviewed the applications and selected the musicians “based on trying to provide primarily jazz content, which is something we’re very proud of.” “We’re also trying to provide a variety of styles (of jazz) and size of groups,” Holloway

continued. “We have some duos, trios, quartets and some six and sevenpiece bands this year.” Through adding four levels of sponsorship (bronze, silver, gold and platinum), organizers have been able to enhance promotions and attract more musicians to this year’s jazz fest, as well. Holloway said rather than asking Merrickville merchants to donate, they wanted to set up sponsorship packages that would also provide them with free passes to the concerts. “We were just blown away by the response. The merchants again came through and we had 17 different sponsors at our bronze level alone,” she noted, adding that there were three gold sponsors, two silver and two platinum. “We’re very, very pleased with the support from the village and outside support.” One of the most unique aspects of the event is the fact that it takes place at different venues around Merrickville. Visitors can enjoy intimate music at Gad’s Hill Place or The Goose and Gridiron, or marvel at the acoustics in Holy

The third annual Merrickville Jazz Fest takes over the village Oct. 17 to 20 with 16 different acts showcasing authentic jazz music at seven different sites around Merrickville. Above, vocalist Karen Oxorn performs at last year’s festival at the Trinity Anglican Church or Merrickville United Church. For those who prefer concert halls, the Merrickville Community Centre will fit the bill. “We’re very excited about the lineup...it’s as close to pure jazz as you’ll find,” Holloway said. “...I’m always surprised that these people want to come to Merrick-

ville. It’s so delightful,” she continued. “And the musicians are such a real joy to deal with.” The lineup Oct. 17 Merrickville Jazz Fest kicks off Thursday, Oct. 17 with a grand opening celebration, which Holloway said is also an appreciation evening for advance ticket hold-

REGIONAL NEWS JAZZ From page 12

more than 20 years and her latest album, JAZZLIKE, has received lots of airplay from CBC Radio. Local favourites Swing Bridge will finish up Friday evening at The Goose and Gridiron at 8:30 p.m. Oct. 19 Wave Bossa Trio kicks off a day of jazz music at noon on Saturday, Oct. 19. They are part of a double bill at the Merrickville Community Centre. The trio consists of vocalist Jerry Sociedade, Chris Thompson on electric bass and pianist Ginny Simonds who combine complex rhythms and harmonies of bossa nova and also love swing classics made popular by Frank Sinatra and other artists. For this performance they will be joined by special guest David Glover. The second act of the double bill is Django-libre, an Ottawa group formed in 2007 that specializes in gypsy jazz. The band includes guitarists Christian Flores, Andrew Tesolin and Steven Van Dlik, bassist Chris Breitner, Peter Dawson on violin and Philippe Mineau on accordion. Then at 4 p.m., Julie Michels and Kevin Barrett headline Holy Trinity Anglican Church. Michels has been a fixture on the Toronto jazz scene for more than two decades. Holloway said she is especially excited to see the Toronto-based musicians. “She’s a little singer with a big voice and he’s a fabulous guitar player and they often play together,” she said. Steve Boudreau and Garry Elliott

are set to perform at the Baldachin Inn dining room at 5:30 p.m. Boudreau is an Ottawa-based jazz pianist and Elliott is a guitarist. They have been playing together for more than 15 years and recently released an album, Pre-Dawn Skies. At 7:30 p.m., Scott Poll and the Pollcats will be at Merrickville United Church. Heralded as one of Ottawa’s premier acoustic jazz groups, the band was formed in 1993 by leader and clarinet player Scott Poll. Other members include bassist Tom Denison, drummer Scott Latham and guitarist Bill Gooby. The band recently performed at a private gala reception for Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. Rounding out Saturday’s lineup is local band the Lorrie Sutterlin Jazz Trio, who take over Harry McLean’s Pub at 9:30 p.m. With Sutterlin on vocals, she will be joined by Steve Boudreau on piano and bassist Tim Stanutz. Oct. 20 The final day of Merrickville Jazz Fest begins at noon with another of Holloway’s picks, Renée Yoxon and Mark Ferguson at the Baldachin Inn dining room. “Renée is a singer and Mark is a pianist and they just moved to Montreal, but are from Ottawa,” she commented. “She has the sweetest voice; it’s just so clear.” Yoxon released a CD in December 2012, Here We Go Again, and is establishing herself as one of the up and coming voices in jazz today. Room to Groove will be at Holy Trinity Anglican Church at 1:30 p.m. A versatile quartet, they have been

performing for the past five years and consist of Edwin Gans on alto sax, pianist Jean Bergeron, drummer Rob Murray, and Len Leclair on double bass. That performance will be followed by Natalia and Montuno at the Merrickville United Church at 3:30 p.m. Natalia Cabrera was born in Argentina and is joined by husband Anthony Cook and Kurt Walther. They are known for creating a positive energy when on stage with styles ranging from bossa nova to blues. Gad’s Hill Place welcomes Anouk and Pierre at 5:30 p.m., who have been performing together since November 2009. They perform original versions of jazz classics as well as incorporating Brazilian melodies. To cap the entire festival off, a Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday will memorialize two of the great jazz singers at the Merrickville Community Centre at 7:30 p.m. This same show was performed at the National Arts Centre’s Fourth Stage back in April and features Ottawa vocalists Dominique Forest, Nicole Ratté and Karen Oxorn. Guests can expect to hear jazz standards by songwriters such as George and Ira Gershwin, Lionel Hampton and Johnny Mercer, as well as Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields. CBC Radio’s Laurence Wall will serve as emcee for the show and the vocalists will be backed by musical director Mark Ferguson on piano and trombone, drummer Jeff Asselin, guitarist Tim Bedner, Normand Glaude on double bass and Mike Tremblay on tenor saxophone. Holloway indicated that ticket

prices have not been raised and remain $15 for single tickets, $40 for day passes (Saturday and Sunday) or $60 for a festival pass until Oct. 14, afterwards they will go up to $65. Tickets are available at the Knock Knock Shoppe, Miller’s of Merrickville, The Village Bean, online at www.merrickvillejazzfest.com (via PayPal) or by phone at 613-2694223. She said tickets have been selling

steadily and encourages all music lovers to come out and experience what jazz is all about. “It’s all about the attraction of live music. So many people have lost interest in it (live music) because they can get everything at home. With live music, there’s so much more interaction with people. You can hear music live, have that social interaction and the atmosphere,” Holloway concluded.

CDSBEO develops anti-bullying app News – The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) has partnered with InTouch Mobile, to develop an anti-bullying and community outreach app. Created in response to new Safe Schools legislation, the mobile application gives students and parents an avenue to quickly, conveniently and anonymously report incidents of bullying and victimization in schools. Research has indicated that this form of communication has empowered students and parents by greatly increased the number of incidents reported, compared to all other reporting vehicles in place. The app is free for users, and can be accessed through various means including a cell phone that is capable of texting, by calling a toll-free number, or through a web chat. The service links to a live, trained operator who will respond to concerns during business hours, with an automated system setup for after hours.

Once the concern is submitted, a report is generated (within two minutes) and forwarded via email to the school administrator(s) for investigation and follow-up. If an operator senses a need for immediate response, a phone call will accompany any emails. The app will be much more than an anti-bullying tool; it will also be developed as a tool for community outreach, which will communicate information on board news, student transportation information, and school news and announcements. “Parents, students, and community members will even be able to highlight acts of kindness and good news items,” reports director of education, William J. Gartland. The tool will be available for use by various groups, including all CDSBEO students in grades 7 through 12, by Jan. 1, 2014.

Arts – It’s easy to find the funniest, most entertaining show of the month in Perth. Just follow the steps to the Full Circle Theatre (FCT) – The 39 Steps, in fact. Patrick Barlow’s adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 spythriller started off in regional theatre in Britain and became the longest running Broadway play of the 2000s, called “non-stop mirth and mayhem – a glorious romp� by Washington’s Metro Theatre Arts and “flat-out hysterical� by the Indiana News-Herald. BarnDoor Productions’ (BDP) 91st show, opening their 19th season, brings together a talented and very energetic cast of community performers for a knock ‘em down tribute to Alfred Hitchcock, film-noir and fun. Taking the very thin line between melodrama and farce as its starting point, the play twists Hitchcock’s very serious thriller into crazy fun, with a handful of performers playing all of the roles in the movie at the drop of a hat and the shift of an accent. From mysterious international spies to Scottish newsboys to London policemen, much of the fun is how the actors change from character to character – often playing two or even three at once! The 39 Steps offers the kind

of high-energy, fast-paced entertainment that has been BarnDoor Productions’ trademark since 1995, starting off in school auditoriums before spearheading the creation of Perth’s first purpose-built theatre in 80 years (the Studio Theatre) and finally creating their own ground-level, barrier-free theatre in 2011, the Full Circle Theatre. That intimate and inviting theatre has become a home to many different kinds of entertainment since its opening, from musicals by the Perth Community Choir (who return in November for their annual fall show, The Secret Garden), to some of the best in independent film with the Film Night International series, great live musical entertainment from Charles MacPhail Productions, adult storytelling from 2 women productions (also returning in November for their third season at Full Circle), and, last summer, Classic Theatre Festival bringing their professional work to the warmly-received Full Circle space. The number of performances and presentations at FCT more than doubled in the second year of operations, with nearly 130 events bringing audiences into the building. The core of the entertainment at FCT is built around BarnDoor Productions,

OCTOBER

whose 19th season includes a special Christmas musical, some cyberspace farce for the winter months, Tony-award winning intense comedy for spring and a return to classic theatre for early summer. The connecting thread, as always with BarnDoor Productions, is community players coming together to create work that “belies their amateur status�, according to one critic. From modern shows like Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Deathtrap (each called “the best community show ever put on in Perth� – you’ll have to decide which one is actually best) to a magical A Midsummer Night’s Dream, BDP continues to create work that goes beyond the normal expectation. The 39 Steps is the beginning of the path to a season full of fun, thought-provoking theatre, great cinema, exciting music and much more at Perth’s Full Circle Theatre. Get on the path and join in. The 39 Steps runs Oct. 18, 19, 24, 25, 26 at 8 p.m., Oct. 20 and 27 at 2 p.m. at the Full Circle Theatre (26 Craig Street, Perth). Tickets are $20 reserved and $22 at the door. Students are just $10. To reserve, call 613-267-1884. No credit cards required; cash at the performance is requested. Visit www.barndoorproductions.ca for more information.

Innovative large scale project brings fish habitat to Otty Lake News – Otty Lake Association and Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) are teaming-up to enhance fish habitat on one of the Tay River’s watershed lakes. Using some innovative techniques, the team is looking to enhance spawning, nursery and feeding areas for smallmouth and largemouth bass in Otty Lake. Seventy-five gravel spawning beds will be installed off-shore. This is done by adding round river wash stone in three feet by three feet wide piles with a thickness of approximately three inches to the bottom of the lake in key areas. The new spawning beds will be placed 40 feet apart and will be spread out across half a kilometre of the lake bottom. Not only will these areas

provide exceptional spawning and nursery habitat, but they will also become homes to many food sources such as crayfish and aquatic insects – all part of a healthy, natural lake ecosystem. The team will also submerge and anchor recycled Christmas trees on the bed of the lake (over 15 feet deep) in 12 designated areas. This underwater material will provide areas where fish can rest, find shelter and feed. Adding submerged wood is a simple, inexpensive and yet effective way to provide summer refuges for adult fish to recover after spawning. “We completed a comprehensive lake restoration plan for fish habitat following the launch of our Tay River Subwatershed Report,� said RVCA aquatic and

fish habitat biologist Jennifer Lamoureux. “We worked with a knowledgeable angler from the lake to identify areas that could benefit from fish habitat enhancements. The Otty Lake Association jumped at the chance to complete this meaningful on-the-ground project that will hopefully see big results starting in the spring of 2014.� “The Otty Lake Association is pleased and eager to participate in this valuable habitat enhancement work to produce and support a sustainable smallmouth bass population for years to come,� says Robert Cosh, president of the Otty Lake Association. “We also see strong benefits in this initiative to provide excellent habitat for other species of fish and aquatic animals.�

RVCA staff and lake volunteers will monitor the success of the project. Spawning beds will be investigated in May 2014 to see which are actively being used. In July 2014, staff will use underwater cameras to inspect the use of the sunken trees. “This is a unique project. Some work like this has happened in Ontario in the past, but nothing of this scale in the Rideau watershed,� said Lamoureux. “We are very interested in monitoring and seeing the results.� This project was undertaken with the financial support of the Government of Canada through the federal Department of the Environment, the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation and the Otty Lake Association. Submitted by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority.

Community – Put your fine woodworking skills to the test this fall and enroll in the Algonquin College Perth Campus Continuing Education Woodworking course. Students will craft a set of handmade coasters each resembling a quilted eight-point star. The coasters, constructed from six different wood species native to the Perth area, are held in a frame with magnets and can be hung on a wall for display. Over the six-week course, students will learn about woodworking, the tools involved and they will each make this decorative item, allowing them to proudly display it in their home or wrap it up for someone to open Christmas morning. Following a sold out and very successful woodworking course led by instructor Laura Elliott last spring, Algonquin College is thrilled to have Laura back to lead another course. Registration is now open and the course begins Thursday, Oct. 10 and runs until Nov. 14.

Canada’s Bomber Command veterans finally recognized Lifestyle – In a corner of London’s picturesque Green Park, an easy stroll from Buckingham Palace, a new memorial honouring the 55,573 men of Bomber Command who died during World War II is getting lots of attention these days. Located at a busy place in the bustling British capital the memorial, formally unveiled by Queen Elizabeth II on June 28, 2012 during her Diamond Jubilee year, is hard to miss. The impressive structure features a 2.7 metre high bronze statue depicting seven air crew members. Last August my wife Kathleen and I, along with our Carleton Place friends Wendy and Frank LeBlanc, visited the memorial. It was a moving experience! We discovered that less than two months after it opened the families of Bomber Command flyers, killed during the air war over Germany and Nazi-occupied Europe, had already turned the monument into a shrine. Scores of families from Great Britain and the Commonwealth, who lost relatives during the Second World War bomber offensive, have placed photos of their loved ones along with information about them in virtually every nook and cranny at the site. Others have placed handwritten notes in memory of their fathers, grandfathers, brothers and cousins lost while serving with Bomber Command. In some cases the

messages are from the families of aircrew who survived the war but have since died. Clearly they want others to know that their loved ones were part of the effort, a campaign which has gone largely unrecognized. That’s due in part to the controversial bombing of German cities which took so many civilian lives. The reality is that those who served in Bomber Command were not concerned with the politics of war. They were doing their duty and they paid a heavy price. Of the 120,000 airmen involved, half were killed in action. The casualty rate is comparable to the losses suffered by infantry units during the First World War which is considered one of the most horrific conflicts in history. Only the losses experienced by Germany’s submariners (U-Boat crews) during the Battle of the Atlantic in WWII were greater than those of Bomber Command! Statistics show that one-third of all Bomber Command aircrew were Canadian. More than 10,000 Canadians perished during the raids. It took 67 years, but on June 25 of last year – three days before the Queen unveiled the new memorial in London – the Conservative government in Canada announced a special bar would be struck and presented to this country’s Bomber Command veterans.

At the end of the war special medals were presented to veterans of various campaigns. But nothing was given to those who flew in the long and dangerous bombing war. Last month, a year after it was announced, recently named Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino gave out the first of the special honour to Bomber Command veterans. Small groups of vets were selected in order to allow the Tories to gain some publicity for the long-delayed honour. An estimated 1,500 others will receive their awards in the mail. Last week I read a column critical of the current process. The writer pointed out that the public presentations involving the minister (Fantino) took precedence over getting the awards to all of the other elderly veterans. Most surviving WWII participants are now in their late 80s or 90s. The column I read says the bulk of the awards were held back until the public ceremonies were completed. At this stage I don’t feel that is a particularly relevant complaint. The only thing that matters is that the honour is finally being dis-

tributed to those who earned it. There isn’t a government in the world that isn’t going to blow its own horn relative to this sort of thing. Nothing is perfect and I believe the current Canadian government deserves credit for getting the job done. The award is nearly seven decades late meaning a succession of governments failed to take the matter in hand. As a result thousands of veterans never lived to receive the recognition they so richly deserve. All of them put their lives on the line in the service of our country. In June I had the privilege of interviewing an air force veteran who was part of Bomber Command. The session is part of a DVD series of historical interviews produced for the Town of Carleton Place. Vic Gilmour, a former building inspector for the Town of Carleton Place, was a tail gunner in a Lancaster bomber. He was part of a seven member, multi-national crew that flew seven bombing missions over Germany. Vic is 93 now. But his memo-

ries of those long ago raids are vivid and incredibly detailed. He calls the experience “really scary� and based on the harrowing tales he told Councillor Jerry Flynn and me, along with videographer Rob Newton, there’s no doubt how dangerous the task was. Vic says flying for Bomber Command was the most dangerous duty of the European war. Interviewing WW II veterans has become a calling for me. The Bomber Command situation makes me think of Merchant Navy veterans who, for 60 years, weren’t officially recognized for their efforts during WW II. Our Merchant Navy people were not given equal status with Royal Canadian Navy veterans, even though their contribution to the war effort was extremely significant. Bomber Command airmen such as Vic Gilmour waited even longer. They were made to feel like the forgotten veterans. They felt vilified as well as forgotten. Criticism stings For Bomber Command veterans in Canada there were a num-

ber of low points in the post-war criticism. One came in the early 1990s when CBC-TV aired a documentary which questioned and criticized aspects of the aerial onslaught. In fairness that program was aimed more at the British High Command who ordered the bombing and not at aircrew. More recently a display at the new Canadian War Museum contained words that offended veterans. The wording on one panel in the display was subsequently modified after a rash of complaints. To me the bottom line here is that Bomber Command members took on an incredibly difficult and dangerous task and more than 55,000 of them made the supreme sacrifice. Nearly 70 years later that fact is finally being recognized in Great Britain and Canada. Sadly, for most Bomber Command veterans the recognition comes too late!

with this perspective. Autonomous driving will be treated like many current vehicle systems such as anti-lock brakes or park-assist and warning systems. A certain percentage of drivers will increase their risk-taking driving habits believing new advances will make them and their vehicles more invincible. This won’t necessarily make them any safer. Some car owners will actually use these systems as intended and therefore derive the benefits of extended radar and camera vision capabilities as well as split-second braking. And of course some will look for the off-button as soon as they leave the dealer’s lot. Drivers as a rule are very difficult to pigeon-hole into one category or another and of course they tend to change with years and experience on the road. One thing my crystal ball does tell

namely drive them into the ground. Others fear it will be used as a crutch allowing more distractions to take place in our cars alleviating us of the responsibility for safe travel. But as with most automotive technology these systems have been and will continue to be introduced bit by bit and many vehicles currently on the road already have some type of autonomous system to keep things on the straight and narrow. Lane departure prevention systems will automatically apply the brakes on only one side of a vehicle to ‘steer’ it back into its lane when it detects a drift without the signal being activated. Collision mitigation systems are optional equipment on some upscale vehicles and can either increase braking power, or in some cases apply the brakes without driver intervention to avoid a frontal collision.

Lifestyle – “Hi Brian, I live in a rural area, which makes it almost impossible to complete this test (emissions readiness test). It takes me 20 minutes to get to the 401, and its 25 minutes to Belleville...by the time I drive the highway, I am 10 minutes over the test (10 minutes at highway speed). If you go over the amount of time on these tests, does it affect the result? Thanks in advance, K” I think you may be confusing the method suggested to reset an auto’s computer (described on Ontario’s Environment Ministry’s website as preparing for the readiness test) with the current emission test. Unless your vehicle has had its battery disconnected recently, or had electronic work/repairs done which necessitated the need to erase the engine computer’s memory, you do not have to do any special driving to prepare it for an emission test. The overwhelming majority of vehicles tested under the new system (more than 95 per cent) do so without any special preparation. Now that more than one automaker is revealing hard plans for self-driving cars (Nissan recently announced intentions to have an autonomous vehicle on the road by 2020, GM states they are working on the same for certain Cadillacs, and Tesla says they’ll be ready in three years), are the rest of us ready to share the road with computerdriven vehicles? We’ve all heard of the Google hardware and software equipped vehicles that have been touring on test tracks and public roads for some years now (several U.S. states enacted legislation to permit licensing). But what will our roads look like in ten years or so when computer-driven vehicles start to drive with us. Some naysayers state that allowing robots to pilot our cars will do for our driving skills what the calculator did to our math abilities, or what smart-phones and social media have done to our socializing talents,

THE EMC - 26 - Thursday, October 10, 2013

Arts – On Oct. 19, Laura Smith returns to Perth for a show at the Studio Theatre. Smith, who gave a stunning performance on the main stage at last summer’s Stewart Park Festival, is a former East Coast Music Award winner, a multiple Juno nominee and is returning now to the stage after a 15-year hiatus away from the spotlight. Now she is back with a brilliant new album entitled ‘Everything is Moving.’ “Five years ago she was a fragile bird fallen from the nest. She soars beautifully today. May it ever be so,” says Bill Margoson of WDCB in Chicago. In Smith’s music, real emotions ebb and flow. Smith’s music is direct and honest. “My work is all very simple, earth-based,” says the Maritime-based singer/songwriter. Her work is not so much written, as painstakingly designed, cut and stitched together. “Like quilt craft,” she explains. “I make it body and soul, with everything I have available – my sensibilities, my ability to play. So many things come into the making of a song. When I say write, it limits what I bring to bear.”

Her 1994 album ‘b’tween the earth and my soul’ elicited unbounded critical acclaim, enormous airplay, national television appearances and a hungry demand for live performances. In 1996, she won two East Coast Music Awards (Female Artist, Album of the Year) and two Juno nominations (for Best New Solo Artist and Best Roots and Traditional Album). In 1997, she won a Gemini Award for Best Performance in a Performing Arts Program or Series. In May 2003, Smith received an Honorary Doctorate in Humanities from Mount Saint Vincent University on the strength of her songwriting. Now following a standing ovation at last summer’s festival, Smith returns to Perth and the intimate setting of the Studio Theatre. This is a show that folks won’t want to miss. Smith performs at the Studio Theatre (63 Gore Street East) Saturday, Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 each and are available at Shadowfax and the Studio Theatre box office.

If you find an attached tick, remove it promptly using a pair of tweezers. Grasp the tickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head and mouth parts as close to the skin as possible and pull it straight out gently, but firmly. Avoid twisting or squeezing the tick during removal. Quick removal of a tick will prevent you from getting lyme disease. Watch for signs of infection following a tick bite. Bites from ticks infected with Lyme disease may create a bullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-eye-like rash. The appearance of this rash is a sure sign of a tick bite and you should see your health care provider. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;bullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyeâ&#x20AC;? rash will occur within one to three weeks after the bite, but can range from three days to one month. If you experience any of the following symptoms: a red bulls-eye rash, fever, headache, muscle and joint pain, fatigue and a skin rash, contact your health care provider.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hunting season is upon us and the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit would like to remind those enjoying hunting activities to be aware that they also share the great outdoors with ticks that can make them sick. Lyme disease is caused by being bitten by an infected tick. In Leeds, Grenville and Lanark, we have several different types of ticks. Lyme disease is caused by the bite of an infected black-legged tick (also known as deer ticks). There are an increasing number of areas where ticks carrying Lyme disease are found. Lyme disease is regularly found within this geographic area of Leeds, Grenville and Lanark. A tick must be attached to you for at least 24 to 36 hours in order to transmit Lyme disease. An unfed tick indicates that the tick was attached for less than 24 hours; therefore, even if the tick did carry the bacteria it could not have transmitted Lyme disease because it was not attached long enough. What can you do? Wear light coloured, long sleeved shirts and long pants. For extra protection, tuck your pants into your socks. Use bug repellent containing DEET. Read the

sure and recreational activities there, take guided tours, learn from staff, help with ecological restoration, and observe sustainable farming that will go on in lands within the park. Indeed, excitement is building for the great potential this park has. On Sept. 14 to 15, the largest Bioblitz in the world was held in the park. The Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto Zoo, Ontario Nature and conservation authorities collaborated with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;citizen scientistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to document all the life they could find in the park in 24 hours.

Oct. 15 SFHS meeting features guest speaker from Hall’s Apple Orchard By CHARLES McLENAGHAN

Community – The next meeting of the Smiths Falls Horticultural Society is on Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 7:15 p.m. at the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95. We are now selling 2014 memberships, which will gain you entrance to this meeting and the annual general meeting (AGM) in November as well as all of next year. Single membership remains at $10 and family living in the same household is $15. Our guest speaker is Kim Hall of Hall’s Apple Orchard near Brockville. She will be speaking on “Apples, Apples, and Apples”. She will talk about their business which has been in existence for many years, the products available and much more. You will have an opportunity to buy some of the products so you may want to bring a little cash. The photo contest winners for September were, Pauline Armstrong first, Carol Stanley second and Bob Stanley third. Theme for October, the last chance to gain those points is “The Harvest”.

Our final flower show is a fun show with winners determined by popular choice. Class 1 is any annual or perennial, one stem, Named. Class 2, “Your Garden’s Last Hurrah” – is a design using the best of your last. No points are awarded for this show. We thank Jeanne Dagley for her outstanding contribution to St. Luke Catholic School in Smiths Falls. The school has a beautiful large greenhouse and under Jeanne’s guidance was able to use some aspects of it. They grew a wide selection of herbs, one of Jeanne’s specialties, this year and are now harvesting and preserving them again under Jeanne’s guidance. The herbs and produce grown will be used in the cafeteria lunches. Well done, Jeanne! Pauline Armstrong continued to reach out for corporate members and donors tirelessly. We thank her and the donors and corporate members for supporting our efforts to beautify Smiths Falls. Please visit these businesses to support them in return. The long list of corporate members is in the back of the 2013 yearbook and the sponsors that made

Smiths Falls Horticultural Society donations are on the following page. Many will give a discount if you ask and present your membership card. Events this past summer included the presentation of our annual scholarship to SFDCI graduate Cameron Oosting. We received a letter from Cameron thanking us for assisting him in his endeavors. We wish him well in the landscaping course at Algonquin College. Our annual donation of books to the Smiths Falls Library means some new and unique gardening help is available to the public. Finally, we were honored to be able to dedicate a new park bench overlooking the basin, in Centennial Park, complete with a memorial plaque in memory of Larry Armstrong, longtime member and dedicated director. Thank you to Gary Bisonette, facili-

ties superintendent for Smiths Falls, for assisting with the installation. Our AGM is on Tuesday, Nov. 19 this year and tickets are available at the meeting. Cost is only $15, which includes dinner served by the la-

dies from the legion complete with dessert and tea or coffee. Plaques will be awarded for the annual contests. There will also be a silent auction. Voting for the executive follows, but we have Bob and Louise from Gillagillou Bird store in Almonte with their wonderful assortment of everything for the birds and bird lovers. You may wish to bring some cash to this since there is a good chance something will strike your fancy. You are invited to attend after the din-

ner if you only want to participate in the elections. We would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to Lorna, our president, and her husband Rick.

1953 Pontiac Laurentian two-door sedan brings back memories Lifestyle – On Sunday, Aug. 18, I attended the annual Tomato Fest Car Show in Leamington, the Tomato Capital of Canada. More than 300 historic vehicles showed up for this day-long event, and one of those vehicles brought back a flood of pleasant memories for me: a fully restored 1953 Pontiac Laurentian two-door sedan owned by Ted Diesbourg of Chatham, Ontario. I landed my first summer job at age 15 in 1957 washing used

cars at our local Pontiac–Buick dealership for 50 cent an hour. One of the cars I washed nearly every day was a green 1953 Pontiac Laurentian two-door sedan. Ted bought his Pontiac Laurentian in 2002 from the daughter of the original owner, John Botek, who purchased the car from Finley Motors, a PontiacBuick dealership at Richmond and Lecroix in Chatham. Mr. Botek owned a variety store a couple of blocks from the deal-

ership and did not drive his car very often. When he died in 1958, the car was passed on to his wife, who did not drive at all. Their daughter lived in Detroit and occasionally drove the

car during her visits to Chatham. The car was last licensed for the road in 1967. For the next 35 years, the car sat in a damp semi-detached garage and suffered rust damage. Even the radiator and heater core had rusted out. When Ted bought the car in 2002, the odometer showed 30,184 original miles. He treated the car to a complete body-off restoration and com-

Ted contacted the Vintage Vehicle Service at GM in Oshawa and learned from George Zampora that his car was #853 of a total of 1,935 Pontiac Laurentian two-door sedans built for 1953. All the numbers match on Ted’s car. Ted’s father had purchased a two-tone blue 1953 Pontiac Laurentian two-door sedan in 1955 and it became the family car for the next 11 years.

OHTO conference, AGM set for Oct. 28 News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tourism businesses and travel-lovers from across the Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlands region are invited to attend the third annual tourism conference and annual general meeting (AGM) hosted by Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlands Tourism Organization (OHTO). The theme of the event, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taking Tourism to the Next Levelâ&#x20AC;?, will encourage attendees to think outside the box about rural tourism and discover the innovative ways the OHTO is working with local communities to support tourism development. The event will take place at Trudeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resort and Banquet Hall in Tweed on Monday, Oct. 28. The OHTO welcomes current members, as well as the general public, to come out and network about tourism issues, engage in keynote sessions and learn about OHTO programs and benefits. Early registration is encouraged to secure a spot: the event is expected to draw a crowd due to an incentive that rewards the first 50 out-of-town registrants with a $20 gas card. Attendance is free. The organization looks forward to sharing its successes and announcing new opportunities for community involvement. This October marks the OHTOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third anniversary, and with a continuously growing membership that now sits at 730 businesses, Nicole Whiting, executive director, says she

is excited about the partnerships the organization is developing across the region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This event is yet another opportunity to reinforce the message of how cooperation and collaboration can overcome the resource limitations most communities are experiencing regarding tourism development,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are many ways we can work together as an industry, but we need everyone to take part in the conversation.â&#x20AC;? Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the event will start at 10 a.m. with a welcome by the OHTO board of directors and staff. Following the AGM, afternoon sessions will feature Glenn Mandziuk, president and chief executive officer of the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Region in British Columbia, who will speak about his first hand experiences from the tourism trenches. Later, Dan Fallak and Emily Arbour of Small Town Thinking will explore how small town pride can have a big impact on tourism. Those interested in attending must register in advance at www.ohto.ca, or by calling Stephanie Hessel, OHTO tourism development & industry relations coordinator at 855-629-6486.

Affleck film offers common theme, predictable result MOVIE: Runner Runner STARRING: Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake, Gemma Arterton, and Anthony Mackie DIRECTOR: Brad Furman RATING: 14A Arts – Heroes getting entangled in impossible situations has been a common theme of late. Runner Runner is one of the better films along those lines though that’s not saying much. As the son of a gambler Ritchie Furst (Justin Timberlake) understands risk. With every move he make he calculates his odds. So when he decides to win his tuition to Princeton by playing on-line poker he’s fairly confident he can do it. At first everything goes according to the numbers, and Ritchie looks like he might pull it off right up to the moment he loses it all. It’s one thing to lose playing poker, but it’s something entirely different to be cheated. Ritchie does a little number crunching, and spots a flaw in the on-line program that’s allowing someone to cheat. Ritchie decides to take one more risk, and fly down to Costa Rica to confront the

My Take MARK HASKINS

man who owns the site; Ivan Block (Ben Affleck). In the world of on-line gambling no one is bigger or more powerful than Ivan Block. He’s also most wanted by the F.B.I. which is why he operates out of Costa Rica. Nonetheless Ritchie walks into one of Block’s parties to bring him the proof that someone is using his site to cheat. You might expect Block to throw Ritchie out or worse, but he doesn’t. Instead Block meets with Ritchie the next day and offers him a job. It’s the chance of a lifetime and Ritchie jumps at it. Ritchie finds himself doing the kind of work he was born to do, and living the kind of life he’s dreamed of living. What he doesn’t realize is when you start out on that slippery slope you have no idea how steep it is until the slide is out of control. When F.B.I. agent

Shavers (Anthony Mackie) grabs him to shake him down, Ritchie begins to see Block has him trapped with no way to win. On the surface Runner Runner is a slick looking film. It’s set in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica, it has a smart and attractive cast, and there’s an intriguing plot centred around corruption and the world of on-line casinos. Now scratch that surface and you get kind of a mediocre and predictable story. It’s not a terrible film by any means. It’s well acted and well executed, but it doesn’t have anything special either. You know the characters and the story from a hundred other films just like it, and Runner Runner fails to put any kind of a fresh spin on it. This is a smart and attractive cast though. Gemma Arterton heats up the screen. Anthony Mackie is surprisingly good as the hardnosed F.B.I. agent. Justin Timberlake is very good as Ritchie, and Ben Affleck nails the corrupt Block. Did I need to see Runner Runner in the theatres? No. Is it a good movie to throw into the DVD player? Absolutely. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Planting giant pumpkins is a growing hobby By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - Growing a giant pumpkin can be a lot of fun, as one Port Elmsley man is finding out. First time out of the gate, George Hendry has grown a 400-pound-plus pumpkin and is raring to have another go at it next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need a 20 by 30 foot plot and full sun, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have either this year, hence the size of my pumpkin,â&#x20AC;? said Hendry. This year the first prize pumpkin at the Port Elgin weighin was a 1,545-pound behemoth, grown by Jane and Phil Hunt of Cameron, Ont. The largest pumpkin recorded so far this year in Canada is a 1,813-pound gourd grown in New Brunswick according to Hunt. Giant pumpkin growing is a burgeoning hobby, with clubs and forums where growers can access information and seeds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy seeds from a store, but you can get them from clubs or from individuals who have grown a giant,â&#x20AC;? explained Hunt, founding member of the Giant Vegetable Growers of Ontario (GVGO). Hendry got his seeds from a giant pumpkin grower whose information he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is, after all, a competitive hobby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we first started growing giant pumpkins, we found out that it was a very secretive hobby, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we started the GVGO club in 2005, because we wanted to share information, advise and seeds with other growers,â&#x20AC;? said Hunt. Starting with four seeds taken from a 1,200-pounds-plus pumpkin, Hendry managed to start three plants indoors, back in early May. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I brought them outside the May long weekend, and at that time I had them in a small

organized about it, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned a lot from him for next year,â&#x20AC;? said Howell-Solc. According to Hendry, cultivating a giant pumpkin takes consistent work throughout the growing season. The vines need to be covered as they spread, the female blossoms have to be carefully hand pollinated and protected from crosspollination. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the pumpkin is still at a liftable size you need to put a bed of sand under it to protect it from rotting,â&#x20AC;? said Hendry. The giant vegetables take considerable watering and nutrient management. Hendry used compost and manure for his own project this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The very serious growers will have their soil analyzed and then address the results,â&#x20AC;? said Hendry. All in all itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of hobby that keeps its practitioners outdoors every spare moment they have in the summer according to Hunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you like gardening I recommend it as a hobby,â&#x20AC;? said Hunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if you get into it, I suggest you join the GVGO, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way to learn, have access to the best seeds and everyone will share advice.â&#x20AC;? Seeds it seems are the biggest hurdle, because not every giant pumpkin will produce them. Some of these oversized gourds are just pulp or fibre on the inside and may not have formed any or very few seeds according to Hendry. The GVGO sends out free seeds from the most recent yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seed producing giant pumpkins with every membership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very enjoyable hobby, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit like watching sunsets,â&#x20AC;? said Hendry. Nothing moves but it does â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you can see it growing from one day to another.â&#x20AC;?

brings from one day to the next. I love it.” Brooke said she loves living in Smiths Falls, a small town where everybody knows everybody. “I love it, it’s a nice little spot. The Rideau Canal runs right through it. It’s a great place to grow up.” Brooke said she has a lot of supporters who have helped her reach her goals over the past few years. “My parents (Dave and Darlene), my whole family, my sister (Brittany), the golf club (Smiths Falls Golf & Country Club), my high school and my teachers,” said Henderson. “Really, the entire town of Smiths Falls.” Busy day After the declaration of Brooke Henderson Day in the morning, a gala was held in her honour at the Smiths Falls Golf & Country Club later on in the evening. Many notable people were in attendance, including Paul Vaillancourt, the resident golf professional. Vaillancourt has spent a lot of time on the course in Smiths Falls with Brooke over the years. “My first time seeing Brooke swing a golf club was when she was in kindergarten,” said Vaillancourt. “We’re almost family.” Another notable figure was Tristan Mullally, the amateur level coach of Team Canada, who has been working with Henderson for the past two years. “I don’t know many people who aren’t blown away by Brooke,” said Mullally. “The way she carried herself at the age of 14 was extremely impressive.” Brooke had no idea a wall dedicated to her great accomplishments was going to be unveiled at the gala. The look of surprise on her face said it all. The wall displayed three distinct pictures; the first is the Ontario Junior Girls Championships; the second is the Canadian Junior Championships; the third is the Women’s Canadian Amateur Championships. All three pictures had one thing in common – Henderson holding the winner’s trophy. Above the pictures, the plaque states ‘The Home of Brooke Henderson.’ Brooke also received a letter of appreciated from LeedsGrenville MPP Steve Clark. Smiths Falls and the rest of the world can expect more great things from Henderson in the future.

Streetscape lights The Downtown Business Association had ordered nine banner brackets depicting the words Smiths Falls and the anchor symbol in lights. Unfortunately the company that was tasked with making the banners, mistakenly created the nine banners so that they would hang over the sidewalk instead of over the street as the DBA had ordered. The company has acknowledged the mistake and will replace the order with the correct orientation, but in the meantime they are offering sidewalk overhanging banners to the town or any local business at cost or best reasonable offer. The nine banners are currently valued at approximately $4,000.

area west, south and east of Ottawa which is in the vicinity or includes Smiths Falls and its airport. Goldak Airborne Surveys has been contracted by the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development and Mines. The company will be flying a twinengined Piper Navajo aircraft equipped with survey equipment and two pilots at an altitude of 200 metres above the highest obstruction in the community. They will be flying a grid pattern with flight lines 400m apart in a northwest southeast direction and 4000m apart in a northeast southwest direction so the number and frequency of passes and noise impact to the community should be minimal. The survey is already underway and started Oct. 1 and will continue until Dec. 31, 2013. Businesses Staples also pointed out that in the month of September alone, nine new businesses have opened in town. They are: Raven’s Candy Shoppe & Odditorium, WMD Photography, The Mission, Target, The Macula Eye Clinic, Matty O’Shea Pub, Sweet Briar Bakery and Tea Room, The Groggery Bar and The Hub Pool. “That speaks volumes in terms of business confidence in this town,” said Staples.

Dog park Gleeson Park, the Off Leash Dog Park will officially open on Oct. 19 and in preparation, an amendment to the Dog Park rules was recommended by staff. Currently rule No. 17, which deals with allowable pets does not acknowledge specific breeds. Staff recommended that the rules be amended to add that Pit Bull owners must follow the Provincial regulations regarding the dog owner liability act which states that all Pit Bulls or Pit Bull cross breeds must be muzzled and kept on leash. “The amendment simply ensures that we are complying with the law,” said Coun. Jay Brennan.

News - At a short special committee-of-the-whole meeting held in Smiths Falls council chambers on Oct. 7 a few issues were raised. Physician recruitment Bob Cheetham, director of economic development, gave a brief report on the Leading Edge Action Lab currently under way in partnership with the Rural Ontario Institute. “We met with 61 doctors and four of those were partnered, if we could follow up with the partnered doctors that might be a good avenue,” said Cheetham. Meetings with doctors were held in Ottawa, Kingston and London. “Ottawa and Kingston were not very busy but London was shoulder to shoulder,” said Cheetham. “We will now have discussions with President and CEO Linda Bisonette at the hospital on how we can best proceed from here,” said Cheetham.

Council was not particularly keen to purchase the extra banners for the town even though it was agreed that they might work well in certain parts of town and even though they could be budgeted into the 2014 budget. “It’s not a lot of money, but it’s a question of priorities,” said Mayor Dennis Staples. Proclamations There were two proclamations made by Staples at the opening of the council meeting held in council chambers on Oct. 7. Staples declared the week of Oct. 20 English as a second language week, to raise awareness and celebrate Ontario’s ESL educators and learners. The occasion is designed to show support of the teachers and honour the commitment and daily efforts of the students. He also declared the week of Oct. 14, Spiritual and Religious Care week in honour of the professional spiritual and religious care providers and the collaboration of staff, families and volunteers across the province of Ontario.

Sole Sisters run for cancer research ljweir@metroland.com

Community - Best friends are there for each other, through good times and bad. Little did they know that a love of running would connect so many like-minded souls and would become a driving force for an upcoming fundraiser for cancer research. France Murdoch is organizing the first â&#x20AC;&#x153;officialâ&#x20AC;? Sole Sisters run for cancer research on Oct. 20 in support of her best friend Sheila Coutts who was diagnosed with lung cancer last year, just before the duo was to compete in a halfmarathon in Niagara Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, Sheila was diagnosed with lung cancer a few weeks before the run. We knew we would be cutting it close to the start of her chemotherapy and radiation, however, we continued to train hard in the hopes of being able to run in Niagara Falls,â&#x20AC;? Murdoch said. The women had to make a decision as the race registration was filling and Couttsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; treatments were about to start at the same time. The Niagara Falls half-marathon was not to be. To surprise her friend, Murdoch planned their own half-marathon last year from Perth to Smiths Falls. They completed the event with their own race shirts, bibs, medals

and there were even kilometre markers set out along the route. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ran 21.1kms,â&#x20AC;? said Murdoch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community of Smiths Falls showed us tremendous support on the day of our race. Along the way, we had race volunteers for water stations, photographers and a little finish line party. We even had a few people join us for a few memorable kilometres. It was a very emotional day filled with laughter and tears.â&#x20AC;? That marathon last year kicked off a year of cancer treatments for Coutts. Today, she is on the road to recovery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a cancer survivor,â&#x20AC;? said Coutts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All reports are clean. I had fairly advanced lung cancer.â&#x20AC;? Her treatments started Oct. 23 and finished just before Christmas. Since then, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working on getting back to 100 per cent thanks to her coach, Brian Paquette, owner of Zendragon Martial Arts and Fitness Studio in Smiths Falls. In town for a little more than a year now, Paquette said that the Coutts family was his first registration for a gym membership. Coutts remembered telling him she hoped heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d still be here in a year, and has been thrilled that the fitness studio is thriving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brian has been a driving

force to get me back into the best shape I can be, through confidence building and making me as strong as I can be,â&#x20AC;? Coutts said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thank him enough. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dedicated and passionate man and is appreciated, especially now that I can look back on all heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done, not just for me but for the community. Smiths Falls is truly blessed to have him here.â&#x20AC;? The Sole Sisters Charity Run for Cancer Research is not only in Couttsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; honour, but in the honour of everyone who has been touched by this horrible disease, noted Murdoch. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how many people would be able to take part in this monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event, so the women capped it at 100 participants â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sold out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do this for praise or attention,â&#x20AC;? Murdoch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheilaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s illness sparked it.â&#x20AC;? Everyone is invited to cheer on the participants Sunday morning, which kicks off at 8 a.m. from Zendragon (beside Giant Tiger in Smiths Falls). There are 2km and 5km routes and everyone will be presented with participation medals for their efforts. All proceeds from the event will go to cancer research.

Smiths Falls resident captures McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Manager of the Year award BY JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; McFamous. A term coined by Manager of the Year for McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Michelle Warren. The ever present smile on the Smiths Falls residentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face is evidence enough of why McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chose to honour her during their regional ceremonies this past summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, it was very surprising to hear and a huge honour,â&#x20AC;? said Michelle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing that the people I work for recognize what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing, but McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as well.â&#x20AC;? The ceremonies took place in Toronto, where Michelle was presented with a commemorative plaque and corporate stocks. The regional vice president of McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was in attendance, which made the event even more special. Michelle found out in May that she would be the recipient of the prestigious award for which only the top 10 per cent of McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s managers are eligible. The award is presented to managers in various regions across the country. Michelle received the award for her work at the Perth McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, which

is owned by the same franchisee as the Kemptville location. Michelle worked in Perth for two-and-a-half years, before being transferred to Kemptville in March. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the things that had to do with me receiving the award were my attention to customer service, ability to build sales and community outreach,â&#x20AC;? she said. Michelle explained that McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is very focused on quality and therefore sends mystery shoppers into all their restaurants. The award also centres around the scores each restaurant receives from these mystery shoppers, who rate each location on quality, efficiency and customer service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a snapshot of how each restaurant is running,â&#x20AC;? said Michelle. Clearly, something special was going on at the Perth McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This award reflects the work I was doing there,â&#x20AC;? said Michelle. Now, Kemptville residents get to reap the rewards of having Michelle around to serve them delicious burgers and fries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love it here,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nice thing is this restaurant had a collec-

tion of regular customers who I got to know.â&#x20AC;? The franchisee, who owns the Perth, Kemptville, Smiths Falls and Carleton Place McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, took Michelle out for a celebratory dinner after receiving the award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He also joined me at the ceremony in Toronto, which was nice,â&#x20AC;? said Michelle. Michelle, a resident of Smiths Falls, has been working for McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for 10 years. In recognition of her commitment, she is set to receive a commemorative ring this year as well.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was 16-years-old when I started at the Brockville McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s,â&#x20AC;? said Michelle. Her hard work and dedication paid off when two years later she was promoted to swing manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically, I was the manager who did odd shifts.â&#x20AC;? A further three years of determination resulted in another promotion to store manager. Michelle says she enjoys working for McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and intends to stay with the corporation for many years to come. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My goal would be to continue

working with my franchisee. There are always lots of opportunities within McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to move up in the future.â&#x20AC;? Michelle said she is delighted to be working in Kemptville, where the staff are extremely hard working and fun to be around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love just being able to make a difference in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s days,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice being able to interact with customers and the people I work with. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about having a positive impact.â&#x20AC;?

Specializing in turning your chaos into efficient, functional organic order hsorour@perfprint.ca

Business - Systems N’ Spaces in Smiths Falls is a two-pronged business, bringing organization and function back to any environment and helping people transition from larger into smaller spaces with the least amount of discomfort possible. “I start with a one-hour consultation where we discuss goals, habits and as we move along we try different scenarios - some will work and some won’t so we change them,” said Trigger Penny, owner of Systems N’ Spaces. The approach is entirely client centric, so that any solutions suggested works for the individual. “Oh my gosh, I finally feel that clutter does not control me, I control it,” said Diane Scott, one of Penny’s clients. Penny doesn’t impose her own sense of order onto her clients’ lives or spaces whether office or residential. Instead she helps each client find ways to regain control over their environment by guiding them through the process of eliminating the chaos in their own unique way with helpful solutions that work with their existing habits. “At first I thought it was just organization that she would offer, but she has a real flair for design as well,” said Scott, who is also in the process of downsizing to a smaller condo. Scott had experienced other organizers in the past but says they were nowhere near as effective. “They didn’t get me, they knew systems that they assured me had been well researched and documented and were guaranteed to work, but they weren’t systems that worked for me,” said Scott. Penny’s approach is different and involves

getting to know the client so that any changes that are made in their environment can continue to work for them once her job is done. “The first thing I do is come up with an action plan - what are we tackling - then I go through a series of questions to see how the client thinks,” said Penny. The goal, she says, is to create a level of efficiency and functionality within an environment that works organically for the people who live with it. Penny has found that most people don’t recognize the habits that lead them into a state of chaos and that once they do, they can start to tame that chaos with a little help and some choice solutions. “She intuitively understood how I worked and lived,” said Scott. “Trigg has done wonders with a system that continues and works with my bad habits.” That attention to her clients’ needs has garnered Penny the recognition from HomeStars. com an online community of homeowners and home renovators. Once a year HomeStars recognizes the finest businesses reviewed by actual homeowners and clients with the Best of Awards. Penny has won the award three times in a row now. The most important thing about Systems N’ Spaces service is that it is utterly non-judgmental. “She doesn’t invest her ego into it, which makes it much more comfortable; she never makes me feel stupid or guilty,” said Scott, who explains that it’s unfortunately a common feeling when asking an outsider to help organize personal spaces. It isn’t an instant transition for either party, and it’s very much a joint effort. There is according to Penny, a fair bit of trial and error, which is why she tends to market her services in packages. Her most popular package is the 40-hour flexible package, which can

be used over several months. “Typically I do several days in a row so clients can see an aesthetic change in their surroundings,” said Penny. The hands-on approach means that Penny travels all over the place to get to clients from Ottawa to Kingston and in between, but Smiths Falls is the perfect central location. The whole business is entirely Smiths Falls born and bred. When Trigger Penny fell victim to force reduction layoffs at a Kanata company she realized it was time to re-invent herself. At the time she had just moved to Smiths Falls from Ottawa. “I probably would never have found out about OnTrac if I hadn’t been living here,” she said. Once Penny found out about OnTrac, she took advantage of the counselling service and it wasn’t long before she realized that her flair for organization was more than just a personality quirk. “It was through OnTrac that I found out about and applied for the Self Employment Benefit Program, and went through the 42week training,” said Penny. She took the courses, which included everything from marketing, bookkeeping, identifying the target market, making contacts, closing a sale to defining and writing a business plan. “There is a selection process, so we try to pick those business ideas and individuals who have a commitment to succeed in entrepreneurship and business,” said Roy VanderMull, program coordinator with VDMA training and consulting the organization that runs the program. Laid off in 2008, Penny was up and running her own business by 2009 and by 2010 had won her first Best of Award.

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - October 7, 1913

No feat of magic, no sleights of hand, no illusion before or since ever attracted the attention that Heller’s great Second Sight did some 30-odd years ago. In a word, that gifted entertainer went about freely among his audience while his beautiful sister Haidee sat on a couch on the stage, blindfolded, and read the dates on coins, named objects shown to Heller by the audience, repeated passages from books opened by anyone and did all manners of other mystifying things. Scientists even thought Heller had solved the mystery of thought transference. Nonsense! It was nothing but the simplest of tricks smoothly turned by that perfect performer. 50 YEARS AGO - October 10, 1963 Coon hunting has become so popular in the United States that a national organization has been found; dogs especially bred for the sport and national publications devote large amounts of ink to publicize the sport. In Canada, the sport of coon hunting is just developing. It has not reached the scale where a hunter and a dog can pick up $42,000 in prize money for winning a coon trial. The Canadian Coon Hunters Association was formed five years ago. The sport developed mainly the western part of the province. Coon trials are organized in the section of the country on a large scale. A move, sponsored by local coon hunters is afoot to stage the first annual Eastern Ontario coon trials in this district.

When one thinks of hunger, malnutrition and poverty, one usually thinks of the Third World. However, nearly four million Canadians live in poverty and about 300,000 receive regular food donations. To help people become more aware of the current situation, World Food Day was established in 1981 and this year, it will be celebrated on October 16. The Smiths Falls council has proclaimed World Food Day here and some local churches will be observing it this Sunday. Food will be collected during services at both the Trinity United Church and the Westminister Presbyterian Church. Members of the Costa Rican Youth Exchange delegation will be helping collect the donations which will be given to the local food bank, run by the Salvation Army.

Finding a Buckley’s replacement has been a chore

L

ifestyle – I love October… well, except for the gunshots that signal the start of hunting season, which apparently, is in my back yard, and the colds that run rampant through the work and home environments; and never knowing what to wear as the thermometer bounces around. Crazy weather, no wonder we’re sick. I say ‘we’ as it’s a collective sickness that is running through the newsroom right now. I’m dousing my work area in Lysol. Next, I’ll bring out the surgical mask. Thankfully, I’m not in this newsroom for extended periods of time, but 12hour days are long enough to catch whatever virus is running through it. I was at the pharmacy on the weekend, trying to stave off the cold. I don’t want it – when I get sick, it puts me in the emergency ward and lands me flat out for a week, translating to pneumonia by the time it has run its course. Definitely don’t want any of that business going on right now. Who has time for that? Not Sweet Brown. I was looking for Buckley’s – yes, it tastes like, well, you know, but it does work. A staff member at the pharmacy said they don’t have any in stock… haven’t for some time now. Apparently, this shortage has been going on for more than a year. Buckley’s maker – Novartis Consumer Health Inc. – shut down its Nebraska

10 YEARS AGO - October 15, 2003 Thousands of Lanark County and Smiths Falls most vulnerable citizens count on United Way dollars for support. The fatherless youngster in need of adult guidance, the senior in need a helping hand to allow them to remain in their own home, a child in need of refuge from an abusive home life. All these and many more programs might not exist without the support of the United Way of Lanark County, and with 18 member agencies now, the 2003 fundraising campaign – which runs from September 17 to November 21 – is more important than ever. The goal this year has been set at $300,000, says executive director Brenda Hurrle, noting the target is set based on requests from the agencies and estimated requirement for the United Way’s special program grants. A key to achieving the goal is payroll deduction, Hurrle says. Businesses across the county are being encouraged to participate in the program which allows each employee to contribute to the campaign. Compiled by Leanne Jarrett

LAURIE WEIR Weir View plant last year. It’s a major manufacturer of other cold relievers like NeoCitran and Triaminic. So I called the customer service line. They asked if I was calling as a consumer. “No, I’m a reporter in Ontario looking for some information about why I can’t get Buckley’s at a drug store.” “One moment please, and I will put you through to a media representative.” Sure… 20 minutes later, I called back after hanging up for being on hold for so long. “Are you calling as a consumer?” she asked. “Yes, of course,” I said. I was waiting for lightning to strike. Apparently, I can’t get Buckley’s or NeoCitran or a few of their other products (like Jack and Jill cough medicine) because they have shut down the manufacturing lines that makes these products due to “maintenance and improvements” on the lines.

How long has this been going on? “Since early 2012,” she tells me. When do you expect to get the product line running again? “We’re hoping as soon as possible, but we don’t have an exact date,” she said. What was the reasoning for shutting down the line… like what kind of maintenance or improvements take over a year to conclude? (Am I sounding like a reporter?) “I don’t have that information,” she said. What do you recommend I take instead of Buckley’s? “I would recommend you check with your practitioner,” she said. I went back to the pharmacy and had a conversation with a lovely lady who was picking up Cold FX. She takes them every day and twice a day when she feels a cold coming on. Says she swears by it. One of its ingredients is ginseng – which boosts the immune system. Now I’m dodging sick people as best as I can, but it’s not easy. Some of the best tips to avoid sickness are often the easiest. I’m in the bathroom washing my hands 15 times a day. Hand sanitizer is also my friend. Now if those sick people would just stay home…

Community – For Catholics, this year was the Year of Faith and the goal was to arouse in believers a desire to fully profess their faith. Therefore, during this special Year of Faith the Catholic Women’s League at St. Francis de Sales and Blessed Sacrament Parish reached out to the youth aged 12 to 14 years attending St. Francis de Sales School. The youth were asked to voluntarily write an essay on the meaning of faith to them. In their stories the youth made us rediscover that faith can move mountains during the sickness of a brother. They showed that they keep true to their faith and that faith can strengthen us. They professed their faith with confidence and hope. Nick Nadeau was the winner of this writing contest and here is his story on how he embraced his faith. Here’s his story: Faith is believing in God’s love for us, and trusting Him to support us when we are in need of guidance. Almost four years ago my faith was tested when my grandfather passed away. I had to turn to God, and believe that He had a plan for my family and I.” Four years ago my grandfather passed away. I was young and never experienced anything like losing a family member I was that close. I remember seeing my mom on the phone, she was crying. She sat me and my sister down, looked at us, and told us the news. We had been in Toronto for a hockey tournament, and I didn’t even think he would pass away while we were gone. Never experiencing a situation like this I didn’t know how to react or respond. My grandfather was a very religious man, so my dad told me to say prayers. I prayed asking God if my grandfather was safe, if he was happy. Yet I never knew how to respond to the situation that was still going on. I didn’t know why God took him from my family and I. I wasn’t sure what do; I started to think God was picking on me, stealing people out of my life. Then at my grandfathers’ funeral I was asked to alter serve. I remember being at the front of the church, seeing my family in front row… crying as the priest spoke. After the funeral my family told me, “Your grandfather would be proud.” That’s when I realized God had showed me the way to realizing what I had to do to move on. I wanted to know what to do. God showed me how to make my grandfather proud. He showed me how to be strong when faced with a difficult task. I believed God loved me and I trusted Him to support me, and in His house, the church. He showed me, my faith was real. Ever since that day when faced with barriers I’ve trusted God. I always look to Him when I’m in need of guidance. God works in mysterious ways, but He has a plan set out for us. And in the end He is always there. He shows us the way. Sometimes it may take longer to notice then we would like, but we always have to keep true to our faith. On Youth World Day, Sunday July 28, Father Rod McNeil presented Nick with a gift of appreciation. To The Catholic Women’s League of Canada, the participants are all Heroes of Faith.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daffodil time in Rideau Lakes Community - The Township of Rideau Lakes is in its fourth year of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Daffodil Project, making Rideau Lakes The Daffodil Capital of Ontario by 2015.â&#x20AC;? The Daffodil Project is a beautification committee initiative inspired by the residents of Freeland Road, whose hillside blooms golden each spring with hundreds of daffodils. Beginning in the fall of 2010, local beautification committees began planting daffodils in each hamlet in the township. In 2012, the committee began purchasing bulbs in quantity from The Ferry Gardens in Rideau Ferry and offering them for sale to residents. This year, in addition to the large-sized bulbs from Ferry Gardens, the township is also offering daffodil bulbs from the Canadian Cancer Society. Residents of Rideau Lakes are encouraged to plant daf-

fodil bulbs in gardens and along fences (a clump of seven bulbs every third post looks impressive each spring, where the leaves will not be mown down after blooming. Planted once, daffodils will multiply and bloom year after year. Clumps of five, seven or nine bulbs planted in Oct will bloom in March/April. Full sun gives the best results, but daffodils can survive some shade. Daffodil bulbs should be planted with the pointed end up at a depth of three times the height of the bulb eight to 20 cm. Do not cut them down after blooming: the leaves need to gather nourishment for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blooms. Canadian Cancer Society daffodil bulbs are available for sale at the township office in Chantry. Watch for student volunteers selling daffodil project bulbs Oct. 12.

Harvest Run

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The fifth annual Harvest Run was a big success. For the first time, the run was done in partnership with the Smiths Falls Fire Department and sponsored by Matty Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Sheaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, which is a new local establishment. Runners brought at least four cans of food or made a monetary donation in order to participate. All proceeds from the run went to the Smiths Falls food bank. The goal was to build a mountain of food in the back of the fire truck. The run raised more than $500 for the food bank, not including the canned donations. Pictured at the top, the fire truck is filled with donations; centre, Randy Normandin and John Marks fill the truck; bottom photo, at the finish line from left, firefighter Nick Ritchie, runners Dan Trudel and Graham Ross.

Community - Nancy Berthiaume and Bill Hamilton receive the 2013 Joyce Brennan award for outstanding contributions to local arts and culture from town Coun. Jay Brennan, and a gift from Arts Council president Zoe Ashby on the evening of Oct. 4 at the Kinsmen’s Pavillion.

Community – Students at the Elgin and District Co-operative Nursery School are lacing up for a good cause this month. On Thursday, Oct. 17, the school will host its annual fundraiser, The Big Race, which sees local preschoolers collect pledges to run three laps of the South Crosby Public School field. It’s a unique opportunity to see little legs and big hearts in action! All proceeds from the event go directly towards operating the Elgin and District Co-operative Nursery School. “As a non-profit, pre-school organization that focuses on providing young children with the opportunity to explore and develop confidence in a caring and nurturing environment, fundraising is a key source of income to keep this resource for young children and parents sustainable in the community,” said Wendy Grant, volunteer co-chair of the nursery school board. The Big Race is also incorporating an open house this year, and parents or caregivers of young children eligible to attend the school are invited to visit and learn more about its programming that day. Starting at 9:30 a.m., the nursery school will welcome parents and children on a drop-in basis, who are interested in seeing a school morning in

Help alleviate shaken baby syndrome By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - Calling all crocheters and knitters to break out those needles and get busy making purple newborn hats for the PURPLE hats campaign by mid-November. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to raise awareness about shaken baby syndrome and infant abuse,â&#x20AC;? said Brenda Kelford, the organizer of the campaign. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also about letting new parents know about PURPLE crying - those rarely discussed episodes when some newborns may cry for no apparent reason usually in the evening and for prolonged periods and it seems impossible to sooth them. The acronym â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;PURPLEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stands for those characteristics: â&#x20AC;˘ P â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Peak of crying. â&#x20AC;˘ U â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Unexpected crying. â&#x20AC;˘ R â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Resistance to soothing. â&#x20AC;˘ P â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pain-like face. â&#x20AC;˘ L â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Long-lasting. â&#x20AC;˘ E â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Evening â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the baby may cry more in the late afternoon/evening period. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This period of crying is what often leads to infant abuse when a parent or caregiver cannot cope. When you become so frustrated that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do; please rely on any backup support you may have,â&#x20AC;? says Kelford. This year Kelford has managed to reach an agreement with the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital to distribute the hats in the maternity ward to new parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We recognize the value of the approach, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to participate more fully in, and will in future,â&#x20AC;? said Linda Bisonette, president and CEO of the hospital.

While the hospital is welcoming the hats into the maternity, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not actively participating in the initiative at this time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order to do the PURPLE crying program we needed to dedicate time and training to it, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already engaged in other training programs for this year,â&#x20AC;? said Bisonette. This is the second year Kelford has taken on this campaign. Last year she collected 110 hats, which she sent to the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trauma unit at the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital in London Ontario. This year, glad that the purple hats will stay in the community, Kelford has already collected 60 hats to hand out to newborns and is hoping to collect a lot more to spread the message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each hat has a tag attached to it explaining what PURPLE crying is and what new parents can do to cope with it,â&#x20AC;? she says. Anyone interested or able to knit or crochet baby hats is invited to knit a few, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be entirely purple as long as they have some purple in the design. They can be dropped off at The Loft, located in Davidsons Courtyard on Russell Street East. Also at Knit Knackers yarn store on Russell Street East. According to the Public Health Agency of Canada there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any definitive answers to the question of how many babies are affected by Shaken Baby Syndrome in Canada. There is however a growing awareness that the issue may be under reported. Disturbingly, according to Statistics Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family Related Homicide statistics for 2000 to 2009, Shaken Baby Syndrome is the leading cause of homicides involving children under the age of one.

Find your passion, and it will get better says Invaders quarterback Hildreth By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – Jeff Hildreth’s uniform didn’t help him hide, it helped him cope. From the time he first put a football uniform on, he has seldom taken his jersey off, and Saturday, Sept. 28 was no exception, as the captain and quarterback for the Ottawa Invaders football team reached out to those dealing with depression, mental health and addiction issues at the Brett Pearson Run For Your Life. “You are in your uniform, nobody knows who you are,” said Hildreth during the opening ceremonies outside of Carleton Place town hall on Sept. 28. “You need to find your passion. You need to pursue your passion. It will give you the individual tool to get you out of that situation. There is a community out there for you.” Hildreth grew up in a lower income family in Hamilton, Ont., and did not know bullying – until puberty hit. “That’s when it comes out,” said Hildreth, when classmates would pick on him, “this kid (who) wears the same pair of jeans to school every day.” Walking home from school one day, he saw a poster for football tryouts. “I bugged my family,” he said, but, coming from a family of Hamilton Tiger-Cats fans, he soon won them over and took to the field. But he never forgot those moments of being teased and taunted, and has since returned to classrooms around the province to deliver the anti-bullying message, one he sees as compatible with the mental health theme of the day. “If we can reach children at a young age…we can prevent these things from happening,” he said. “You are shedding some light on an important issue. You need to congratulate yourselves.” Bullies enjoy isolating their victims, and depend on silencing anyone who may want to step forward to help. “It makes children feel like they are alone,” Hildreth said. “That’s what bullying does.” He referred to the “by-stander effect,” where good people stand by, and say, and do, nothing, to prevent an evil from being carried out. “You feel bad for the kid (being bullied), but nobody stands up,” said Hildreth. “We don’t have thought bubbles that pop up and say, ‘Hey, this isn’t okay.’” Unlike Hildreth, who wears a jersey, helmet and shoulder pads into his place of work, Dr. Theresa Tam, wears a white lab coat and a stethoscope to

work. Remarkably, however, they are both team mates in fighting bullying, and problems of suicide and mental illness. “There is no health without mental health,” said Tam, who was also running in the 5 km race later on that morning. Although she is the director general, Health Security Infrastructure with the Public Health Agency of Canada in Ottawa, earlier in her career, she was a pediatrician, and “I witnessed tragedies like the stories you’ve heard,” including those from Brett Pearson’s mother, Nicole, who found her teenaged son dead by his own hand, following a battle with depression. “I have seen parents struggling to survive (after),” said Tam. Going by the numbers, there are a lot of parents struggling to survive, with 4,000 Canadians killing themselves every year. Worse still, every 40 seconds, there is a suicide somewhere in the world. “Why don’t we recognize this?” said Tam. “Adolescence is a time of stressful transition. If we know that, why are we not doing something about it?” For all of the obstacles in the way of a doctor trying to bring a patient back to his or her health, for mental illness, stigma is by far one of her greatest foes. Knowing this stigma forces sufferers to push any outward signs of their trauma deep inside, out of view, even from the sight of those who could help. “People with depression, they often lead two lives,” said Tam. “On the outside, they look happy. But on the inside, they are struggling.” The common perception is that everyone should be happy: “Who wants to be in a group of depressed people?” she said. She called on those gathered in front of her on Mill Street to help “save a life today by…talking about it.” By talking about her own loss, Tam said that Nicole Pearson, a recent Jubilee Award Medal winner, that, “I am sure Brett has saved some lives already. Talking about it is hard, but not talking is deadly.” Nicole saw for herself just how difficult not talking can be for the survivors, even decades after a suicide. She has made herself available to talk to a myriad of community and service clubs, and to any school who invites her to speak. “Every forum I attend, I am guaranteed that I will come away with a incredible story,” said Nicole.

at a seniors group in Carleton Place turned out to be no exception. A man in a wheelchair, in his 80s, sought Nicole out after she had spoken to the group, and told her about his sister, who killed herself in the 1960s. “For the first time, he was able to share that, how he had lost his sister,” said Nicole. “I couldn’t imagine, almost 50 years, holding it inside…Back in the 1960s, we didn’t talk about it. Suicide is difficult to talk about. But we cannot push it to the side.” The memory of her son is ever present, since “a mother’s identity is built around her child,” she said. But seeing the banner for the walk strung across Bridge Street reminds her that “it would be a greater loss to fail to grow from this.” Looking up to the clear blue fall sky, she promised her son, “Brett, we are going to do this again, today.” Father David Andrew of St. James Anglican Church led the blessing, and called for a “blessing on those who struggle with depression and substance abuse.” He also called for an end to the “stigma of silence,” and spoke out to those who are in the midst of their Photo by DESMOND DEVOY suffering: “Let us share that hope with Jeff Hildreth, captain and quarterback for the Ottawa Invaders footthose who dwell in the darkness of ball team, speaks before the start of the Brett Pearson Run for Your Life despair.

Highlands may pay more policing costs under new provincial rules By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lanark Highlands Township residents could be paying more for policing costs over the coming years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will Lanark Highlands get to pay more? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a betting man, but I would say, yes,â&#x20AC;? said George Braithwaite, the provincial appointee to the Highlandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; police services board, at their meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 1. As the area representative to the Ontario Association of Police Services Boards, he reminded the PSB that the OPP contracts for both the Highlands and Tay Valley Township are up for renewal. Billing consultations have already been carried out around the province, with recommendations already having been made to the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but â&#x20AC;&#x153;they are not able to divulgeâ&#x20AC;? what those recommendations are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within the next six weeks we will have an idea of those recommendations are,â&#x20AC;? said Braithwaite, though he suggested that the scheduled OPP pay hike would likely go ahead on Jan. 1, 2014, though

not without some grumbling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The OPP rise in wages is being resisted in many quarters. This will be damaging to many smaller municipalities. But it is going to happen.â&#x20AC;? Already, he pointed to a small municipality, in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;hinterlandsâ&#x20AC;? which pays $7 per household for policing costs already. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have no crime,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is like the living definition of Sleepy Hollow.â&#x20AC;? When the province does make its recommendations on police costing public, Braithwaite said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;my opinion is that it will be based on a flat cost. There will be a new set of winners and losers. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what they will do with the aberrations,â&#x20AC;? whose policing needs and realities do not exactly fit the regular mold, places like Kenora, Hawkesbury, and Cobden, â&#x20AC;&#x153;who will pay higher costs, through no fault of their own.â&#x20AC;? However, Braithwaite hastened to add that while â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that the new protocol will be more fair,â&#x20AC;? some of his assumptions may not come to pass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may not happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. There is not point in speculating about this in the newspapers.â&#x20AC;?

DONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T DUMP ITâ&#x20AC;Ś BLUE BOX IT! The simple act of recycling has more impact on the environment than the average Canadian thinks. The amount of wood and paper North Americans throw away each year is enough to heat five million homes for 200 years.

Tapping technology tools adding security for cops on the beat By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It may not exactly be RoboCop come to life, but the OPP is taking more technology on board in its fight against crime. If your boss wants to keep tabs on your comings and goings at the office, both online and in real life, the OPP is the same, installing GPS (global positioning system) technology on all of its cruisers, to let the top brass know where their officers are. OPP Staff Sgt. Mike Forster told the Township of Lanark Highlands police services board meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 1 that while â&#x20AC;&#x153;not every vehicle has been equipped with itâ&#x20AC;? yet, there is already mandatory online training going on amongst his fellow officers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait until everyone is on it,â&#x20AC;? said Forster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s officer safety. How can you fight that?â&#x20AC;? Some of the technology being employed, however, was a bit more mundane in its application. If you email an OPP officer today, his or her email will likely end in @Ontario.ca, the email

server for the Ontario public service. In future, however, the OPP email system will be split off into its own system, ensuring that â&#x20AC;&#x153;every level of communication that comes out of the OPP will be secure,â&#x20AC;? said George Braithwaite, the provincial appointee to the Highlandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; PSB. In another technological move, spidery handwriting in officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notebooks may soon be a thing of the past, with the introduction of civilian data entry. Using this method, rather than physically writing a report, the information is â&#x20AC;&#x153;spewed out of the officersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mouth,â&#x20AC;? said Braithwaite, using a voice report. A civilian employee then inputs the data directly, and electronically, to a higher command headquarters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The data will be standardized,â&#x20AC;? said Braithwaite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It (the information) will be increasingly accurate,â&#x20AC;? he said, as well as being more â&#x20AC;&#x153;cost efficient.â&#x20AC;? From left, Lanark Highlands Township police services board members George Braithwaite, Tom Bird, and chairman Derek Love, prepare for the Oct. 1 meeting.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Oct. 11 to 14 will mark Operation Impact, a national campaign to make Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads the safest in the world. This police initiative is designed to remind people that an essential part of enforcement is to save lives and reduce injuries on our roadways. Educating the public in safe driving practices is a priority and the focus will be on behaviours that put drivers, passengers and other road users most at risk: impaired driving, seat belt use, and all aspects related to aggressive and distracted driving. Police agencies across the country are collaborating on this project because they have seen more than enough deaths and injuries, and because they know that the involvement of the driving public is essential to achieve safer streets and highways. The date for this initiative has been strategically chosen, as it is a significant long weekend. More people are traveling and traffic crashes are more frequent. Here in Smiths Falls, there have been a number of serious injuries over the years related to vehicle collisions. That is why, in support of Operation Impact, we will be visibly out in our community enforcing the traffic laws, targeting aggressive driving and as always, looking out for drinking and driving offences. Operation Impact is sponsored by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP), and member agencies of the CACP Traffic Committee from across Canada in support of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Road Safety Strategy 2015, which has a goal of making Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads the safest in the world by 2015

Crete hat trick propels Bears to big win Friday By STAFF

Sports – The Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears turned in two big performances over the weekend as they secured four points over Cumberland and Ottawa and moved up to third place in the CCHL’s Robinson Division. The Bears are now sporting a record of 7-5-2 for 16 points – just two behind Cornwall (8-4-1-1), but a good 10 back of Carleton Place who leads with 26 points on 13 wins and just three losses. The wins came Friday at home against the Cumberland Grads where Yannick Crete claimed a hat trick to lead the scoring in the 7-1 drubbing. It was 3-0 for the home team before Cumberland could get past Michael Pinios who was credited with the win in front of 560 fans; one of the lowest Friday night home games of the year for attendance. Neil Doef opened the scoring at 8:16 of the game, assist-

ed by Brandon Lesway and Brett Costello. Crete scored his first on the power play five minutes later with help from Nic Marchand and Victor Beaulac. Daniele Disipio also scored on the power play with less than three minutes to play in the period. Costello and Jonathan Charbonneau assisted. Crete had two in the second period, following a goal from Cumberland’s Mark Golberg. Crete’s goals were assisted by Marchand and Deblois on the first one just 2:20 into the period, and Nicholas Trecroce and Beaulac at 18:44. Cumberland opened the period just 26 seconds in. Heading into the final period, up 5-1, the Bears sealed the win in the first five minutes with two more goals from Karson McCartney and Zachary Senyshyn. Assists went to Charbonneau, Disipio, Beaulac and Marchand. See BEARS page SF21

Smiths Falls native scores in double digits for McGill over Memorial U Sports – Smiths Falls native, Vince Dufort, a junior this year on the men’s basketball team at McGill University, scored 12 points en route to an 83-32 win over Memorial University of Newfoundland on Thursday, Oct. 10. Thomas Lacy, a sophomore from Jericho, Vt., scored a game-high 15 points in men’s preseason basketball at Love Competition Hall. The contest marked McGill’s first competition since Aug. 25, when they wrapped up a three-game exhibition schedule against NCAA teams. The 51-point spread was McGill’s highest margin of victory since Dec. 29, 2008, when they cruised to a 94-43 conquest over Royal Military College at the UQAM holiday tournament. McGill, which only trailed after the opening bucket, led the Sea-Hawks 25-6 after the first quarter,

Memorial shot 31.7 from the floor, 37.5 from the line (6/16) and went 0-for-4 in their three-point attempts. The Redmen, who evened their preseason record at 2-2, will head to the nation’s capital next week for the Jack Donohue tournament. They will open against host Ottawa on Oct. 18 in an 8 p.m. tip-off, followed by games against St.FX (Oct. 12, 8 p.m.) and Queen’s Oct. 13 (12 noon). Submitted by McGill University

Events - If fitness is on your mind then you won’t want to miss this. The Smiths Falls Curling and Squash Club is holding its annual open house this Thursday, Oct. 10 from 3 to 9 p.m. Then on Friday, Oct. 11 they’re holding a squash open house from 6:30 to 9 p.m. “It’s really for the community to come out and see what we have to offer and to sign up for any of our programs,” said Ann McGahey, administrative assistant at the club. The club currently offers two international squash courts and four sheets of championship curling ice both with viewing areas. The club’s facilities include women’s and men’s changing rooms complete with sauna and showers. The club also offers a fully licensed lounge with a fully equipped kitchen and is always happy to host meetings, company parties, banquets and dances in the facility. The open house is an opportunity for athletes and would-be athletes to try either or the squash courts or ice for free and to pick up equipment from sponsoring businesses. “We’re going to have Manta Rackets and Gear for squash on Thursday night,” said Ron Brus, di-

rector of the club. On Friday evening, other area squash clubs have been invited to come down and play exhibition games to showcase the sport. “And Carlos Lou will also be doing some demonstrations on Friday and bringing Oliver Rackets for anyone who would like to come out and play and try some new rackets out,” said Brus. Besides the squash demonstrations during both the open house and Friday’s squash exhibitions, would-be players will have an opportunity to sign up for the youth programs on offer at the club. “If people are interested in enrolling their children, we are starting the junior squash program for eight to 18-year-olds,” said Brus. The club does offer instruction in both squash and curling. “We’re in the process of setting up some curling clinics in October,” said McGahey, and encourages anyone interested to contact the club for exact dates and times.
