News - The Immigrant Entrepreneur Award was presented at last week’s Smiths Falls & District Chamber of Commerce annual dinner to someone who is well known for his contributions to the local business community and the community overall – Maganth (Ram) Mogandas. Mogandas, who is the chef and co-owner of Chuckles Jack restaurant, was the first recipient of the award, which was established by the Smiths Falls Local Immigration Partnership in collaboration with the chamber of commerce and Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation. “In seeking to support new business ventures, Valley Heartland is delighted to sponsor the Immigrant Entrepreneur Award to recognize exceptional business acumen as illustrated by an immigrant entrepreneur,” says Susan Fournier, executive director of Valley Heartland. “We feel it is important to recognize exceptional talent and business leadership and are honoured to sponsor the Immigrant Entrepreneur Award.” One of six awards presented at the dinner held at the Memorial Community Centre hall, the Immigrant Entrepreneur Award was created to recognize the achievements of immigrant entrepreneurs in the Smiths Falls area. Nominees

must be an owner/operator of an active business in the Smiths Falls area, have been born outside of Canada and be a member of the chamber of commerce. Consideration is also given to how the person nominated has contributed to business development and the local economy, as well as his/ her involvement in the local community. “I am glad to see the recognition of immigrant entrepreneurs,” noted Peter Au, co-chair of the Smiths Falls Local Immigration Partnership Council (LIPC). “They come to this country, work hard to create their businesses, providing positive economic activities where they settle in and, when they are established, contribute to the well-being and betterment of their communities.” Mogandas was born and raised in Sri Lanka and came to Canada as a refugee in 2001. As well as being known for the international cuisine he has been serving up at Chuckles Jack since he came to Smiths Falls in May, 2010 after initially living with an uncle and other relatives in Toronto, he was also lauded for being involved in the hiring of other immigrants to Canada and participating in many town and chamber of commerce events. “He is well known and respected in the area,” one person wrote in nominating Mogandas, adding “everyone knows Ram.”

News – Got a story to tell about your experiences with the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital? Well, operators are standing by. Whether your experiences with either campus of the hospital were good, bad, or even indifferent, the new hotline – at 888-599-0770 – sponsored by the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU) and the Canadian Union of Public Employees, went live this week. “This (number) is just for Perth and Smiths Falls, and area,” said OCHU President Michael Hurley, during a press conference at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 95 in Smiths Falls on Monday, Nov. 4. While the unions which represent hospital workers in the area – including OPSEU, the Ontario Public Service Employees Union – have heard anecdotal evidence of how cutbacks are affecting services at the hospital from their members, Hurley wants to hear from the community at large, to get a wider picture of what is going on. “The budget process for the hospital is coming up at the end of March and we believe that the consequences of the cutbacks have been redirecting people for treatment to other facilities,” he charged. “(But) that’s our belief. We don’t know that…We hope to get some input from people who have had to access health care in Smiths Falls or Perth, so we can have a discussion about that. We can use that information to pressure the funder at Queen’s Park.” Information can be left anonymously, or you can elect to leave details, but Hurley stressed that “nobody’s experience will be divulged with attribution, unless they want to be.” He also promised that residents phoning the Toronto-based phone line would receive follow-up phone calls from the union group after their initial call to help form a “coherent narrative,” to their story. The hotline may also have the side-benefit of being a cathartic way for former patients and their

families to talk through their experiences. “People are upset and they want to talk to someone,” said Hurley. “We will take the time to talk to them.” Callers have until the end of January to ring up the service, after which the information will be gathered and compiled into a report, though “how extensive it is depends on how much feed-back we have.” Personal stories may make up the dramatic thrust of the report, but Hurley promised that there would also be “some information context around the stories to give it meaning.” A copy of the report would be made available to Linda Bisonette, the president and chief administrative officer of the hospital, as well as Deb Matthews, the Minister of Health and LongTerm Care. Funding freeze The year 2014 will mark the third year of a five-year funding freeze that will expire on Dec. 31, 2017. According to Hurley, hospitals across the province are facing rising costs of about 5.8 per cent per year thanks to rising doctors’ pay, drugs, and technology costs. “This puts hospital inflation ahead of consumer inflation,” which is around three per cent. “We expect this to get considerably more difficult going forward.” The group continued to warn that “the policy of the provincial government is to downsize smaller hospitals,” and to centralize operations to larger hospitals in urban areas. He pointed to the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital which has been waiting a long time for its redevelopment plans to get the green light from Queen’s Park. “The government does not agree with the scope of the services they intend to deliver (in Carleton Place),” Hurley said. A+ rating Earlier this year, the hospital received an A+ rating from an online Fifth Estate poll, which found the facility to be the best hospital of its size in the country.

Bone marrow drives to be held for teen requiring transplant all participate and register. Mackenzieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad, Doug, is an alumnus of the Bears and Blue Wings. Doug said Mackenzie is a big volunteer in the community and encourages people to organize bone marrow drives at their high schools, through their work, unions or sports organizations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She (Mackenzie) has been a great volunteer and a really great daughter. When our family friend was dealing with breast cancer she made bracelets and raised over $1,600 for breast cancer research,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is one of the many things she has done over her 16 years.â&#x20AC;? OneMatch has a simple system in place for those wishing to organize or take part in a bone marrow drive, which includes a school as-

sembly with a 15-minute presentation by a OneMatch representative. To register in the system, all donors have to do is give a simple cheek swab sample. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very important to Mackenzie and our family to help the OneMatch program grow, for our daughter as well as the next person and family who will require the use of the bone marrow registry,â&#x20AC;? Doug stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;ŚBy helping Mackenzie as a potential donor, you could also help save the life of someone who will be near and dear to someone.â&#x20AC;?

Studio Theatre brings back old-fashioned storytelling in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Voicesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By JOAN SONNENBURG

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life is all about finding a way to communicate with one anotherâ&#x20AC;?, says Sue Tennant of Studio Theatre in Perth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By using one of our senses - body language, sign, Braille, blissymbolics, or spoken word â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we all find a way to communicate.â&#x20AC;? Once this communication was personal, one individual to another. But today we live in an age of so-called mass communication, when we have only to press a button to learn whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in any part of the world, listen to a favourite song, or tune into an exciting movie or TV show. The intimacy of the old-fashioned singer and storyteller seems to have all but died out. Rarely do we hear someone ask, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tell me a story,â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sing me a song.â&#x20AC;?

But the Studio Theatre and Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Flowers are offering just such an experience in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Voices.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; On Sunday, Nov. 10 at 3 p.m., novelist Tim Wynne-Jones and singer Jenny Whiteley will take you on a journey of life as they see and have seen it. Here is an opportunity to sit back, relax be entertained in words and song by two award-winning wordsmiths. Tim Wynne-Jones will be reading from and discussing Blink and Caution, his most recent award winning novels. Thriller, crime novel, and social commentary â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is a story charged with tension and suspense in which two compelling characters are caught up in a dangerous blackmail scheme. Tim is also the author of many childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, young adult and adult novels.

A proud officer of the esteemed Governor Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award, Tim is currently the writer in residence at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University. He lives with his wife Amanda Lewis in Brooke Valley a short distance from Perth on 76 acres of scrubby swamp land. They have three grown children. He is also a musician who loves rock and roll and getting together with his favourite local band mates from The Usual Suspects. Jenny Whiteley is a gifted singer whose lyrics capture the soul of real-life experiences. Her evocative self-titled debut album won the Juno Award for Best Roots and Traditional Recording: Solo in March 2001. She is the daughter of renowned blues musician Chris Whiteley. Being prodigy of a mu-

sical family, her destiny was determined long ago, and her peers have recently recognized Jennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredible voice. Prairie Oyster invited her to sing on their re-released Man in the Moon, a song written by Jennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father Chris. She also sings background vocals on Sarah Harmers hit song, Basement Apartment. She has been awarded showcase opportunities at a number of exclusive North American festivals, including the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals, the North American Folk Alliance and South by Southwest Music Festival and conference. She lives with her husband Joey Wright and their daughters in nearby Maberly, Ontario. So on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 10 at 3 p.m., switch off your TV, leave

your iPad at home, and come sit in the intimate dark comfort of the Studio Theatre, and let Tim and Jenny tell you a story and sing you a song. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget, even if you have a mobility issue, Studio Theatre is now fully accessible. Tickets for this event are available Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Flowers, 63 Gore St. E in Perth, 613-267-7065. Tickets are $20 and payable by cash, debit, or credit card. They will also be available at the Studio Theatre box office the night of the performance. Cash only. For further information, call the Studio Theatre box office at 613-267-7469 or visit the website at www. studiotheatreperth.com.

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On Friday evening, Nov. 8, the first of seven community theatre groups will heed the traditional stage managerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call and take their places as the lights come on at the start of Eastern Ontario Drama Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (EODL) 45th annual One Act Play Festival. The festival will run through the weekend with performances on Friday night, Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening. These seven community theatre groups from across eastern Ontario will be competing for a variety of prestigious awards. A Green Room is held following the evening performances of Nov. 8 and 9 where the audience can mingle with the casts and crews of the competing groups over drinks and snacks. The Green Room is the social centre of the festival where old friends meet and new friends are made, where disasters and triumphs are hilariously relived, new events excitedly discussed and old ones avidly re-examined. The festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finale is the celebrated brunch and awards ceremony where the competing groups await the adjudicatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decisions on awards with eager anticipation. The plays are adjudicated by a recognized professional in the Ontario drama world. This year, the adjudicator is Carolee Mason, particularly noted in her teaching of drama, working with drama students and young people as well as her experience as a director of drama and musicals. With her wealth of experience as a communicator, evaluator and instructor she is an invaluable adjudicator. The adjudicator gives a brief public evaluation of each groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production at the end of each performance which the audience is invited to hear. A more detailed evaluation is given to the casts and crews following the public evaluation. The plays will be performed in the Merrickville Community

2014 Mitsubishi Mirage: Named for what it turns gas stations into

The vehicles I road-test for these reviews (yes itís a tough job, but Iím willing to

make sacrifices) come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian

head offices of the manufacturers and local dealerships. I prefer to use dealership

units whenever possible because they more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higher-end models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out

the manufacturersí websites or better yet, call your local dealership and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. Itís the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at

Rivington Mitsubishi in Carleton Place. Mitsubishiís latest entry into the Canadian market, the Mirage has now landed on dealer lots and is finding early acceptance from buyers looking for fuel economy and affordability in a stylish and

safe package. The base model leaves the driveway at $12,348 for the ES trim package with a five-speed manual transmission. My SE tester (the only other trim level available) equipped with a continually variable transmission (CVT) and the $500 convenience

THE EMC - 5 - Thursday, November 7, 2013

package came in at $17,098 before destination fees, dealer prep, or taxes. Power comes from a 1.2 L dual overhead cam three-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 74 hp. The front wheels are driven through either a five-speed stick or a CVT. While this is no muscle car or even an RVR cross-over, it doesnít pretend it is either. With the CVT acceleration was acceptable for a sub 100hp subcompact. I took the Mirage up to just over 100 kph with surprisingly low levels of road or engine noise. Its short wheel base and overall length (96î and 149î respectively) combined with a very small turning circle makes the Mirage very easy to move through an urban setting. No worries about being able to find a large parking spot or a wide opening in tight traffic. Inside, a proportionally taller roof line gives the Mirage ample headroom for even 6+ footers and full length side doors and a low step in makes entry and exit reasonable for this class. The

tall roof line extends the entire length creating great cargo space especially with the rear seats folded down. Unexpected touches such as heated seats and a fully automatic climate control system nicely provided some creature comforts in a simple yet functional interior. On the highway some body-sway is noted with stronger cross winds and/or hard cornering maneuvers. Seats were supportive, engine noise or vibration was minimal and for an entry level vehicle it would be hard to find a longer feature list for the money. Standard seven air-bags, anti-lock brakes, active stability and traction control, a brake override and assist system all bring a higher than expected level of passenger safety to the table. Exterior styling is reminiscent of the Honda Fit and seems to keep up with current auto fashion trends. Forward and rearward visibility is better than most sub-compacts and while the majority of driving most Mirages will see

will be in urban centres or commutes, this vehicle would make a suitable regional tourer. The big news for Mirage fans is the fuel economy. The three-cylinder sips fuel at an incredibly light rate. A CVT equipped Mirage is pegged by NRCan at 5.3 L/100 km city and 4.4 L/100 km highway (53.3 mpg 64.2 mpg respectively). US EPA ratings converted to imperial gallons are 44.4 mpg city and 52.8 mpg highway. Either way the Mirage is deep into hybrid mileage territory without the extra price tag those gasoline/ electrics carry. Mirage is backed by the best warranty in the industry; a 10 yr/160,000 km power-train and 5 yr/100,000 km new vehicle warranty with a 5 yr/unlimited distance roadside assistance plan. So for a second family car or a first for younger buyers, the Mirage has all the tools to handle day to day commuting and a little fun on the weekend without breaking either the purchase bank or monthly fuel bill.

Community – Are you an elementary or secondary school student? Are you passionate about nature? Do you relish the opportunity to use your research, art, design, and written communication skills to inspire all of us to help our planet? Then this poster contest is for you. As part of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) plastic bag reduction campaign, we invite all local elementary and secondary school students, including those who are homeschooled to participate in our Refuse-To-Use Poster Contest designed to reduce the use, locally, of singleuse plastic bags. Because they are so lightweight and buoyant and take hundreds of year to break down, plastic bags escape into fields, forests, rivers and oceans, wreaking havoc on millions of animals and their habitats around the world. MVFN’s plastic bag reduction effort began earlier this year with the goal to raise awareness of the harm caused globally by the release of plastic bags into the natural environment. During this campaign, MVFN volunteers surveyed local businesses about plastic bag use and conducted smallscale surveys of numbers of people using re-useable containers vs. plastic bags for their shopping.

Great Big Sea frontman Alan Doyle enjoys addition of solo career

Submitted photo

A documentary chronicling the making of Alan Doyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, above, solo record is set to air nationwide on CMT on Friday. His band, Great Big Sea, will be returning to Ottawa on Nov. 17 for a performance at the NAC. this,â&#x20AC;? Doyle added. One of the songs he personally prizes is Where I Belong, a ballad Doyle characterizes as having special meaning to him because it speaks to where he is from - a place which shaped him and gave him courage to chase his dream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about home in the capital â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

sense, to know you have a home to go,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is nothing quite like it.â&#x20AC;? The creation of Boy on Bridge took him from the bustling streets of Toronto to the country-strong empire of Nashville â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with a little help along the way. The documentary, produced by Take

a compilation album of both pop and folk songs. When Doyle reflects, it all seems so surreal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still here,â&#x20AC;? he joked. Boy on Bridge is set to air on CMT Canada this Friday (Nov. 8) night at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and Great Big Sea will be performing at the NAC on Sunday, Nov. 17. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also performing to a sold out crowd in Brockville on Saturday, Nov. 16 at the Brockville Arts Centre. The solo album is available at stores such as HMV and Costco, or available for order online on Doyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www.alandoyle.ca.

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There is a scene in Alan Doyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s documentary where the Canadian musician tosses rocks over a bridge. It is the same bridge he stood on numerous times as a youngster in his hometown of Petty Harbour, NL, often wondering where life would take him. Fast forward to the present and Doyle is the lead singer of the muchloved Canadian folk-rock band Great Big Sea, while simultaneously experiencing his first solo music career. But it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come without its waves of highs and lows. A feature-length documentary, entitled Boy on Bridge, shows the audience a raw portrayal of Doyle as a musician apart from his role in Great Big Sea. Doyle said he hopes those who watch it understand his drive and passion for music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be great if people could look at it and see the wanderlust and curiousity that I have, and see where it came from, and how grateful I am because of it,â&#x20AC;? he said. The title of the album is a nod to a film credit he was given during his childhood when he was asked to be an extra for TV movie A Whale for the Killing, filmed partly in Petty Harbour. The idea of pursuing a solo career had been brewing for some time, he said, and ultimately saw the musician tap into his love of classic rock and country music while exercising his musical imagination over a two-year period. Some of the recording was actually done on Doyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laptop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always something that has to be heard or something that needs to be said,â&#x20AC;? he said. Doyle said while he knows how to play some instruments, such as the guitar, mandolins and percussion, all of which he played on the album. He also played instruments heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been learning, such as the banjo, piano, and accordion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very much still a student of music,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All my life, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve wanted to do

the Shot Productions Inc., sees Doyle teaming up with musical legends and friends to shape the album, including Newfoundland folk singer-songwriter Ron Hynes, Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo, indie artist Hawksley Workman, his Robin Hood and Republic of Doyle co-star Scott Grimes, Grammy awardwinning Gordie Sampson, notable television composer Mike Post, and good friend and long-time musical partner Russell Crowe. His first film credit back in Petty Harbour would be the first one on his actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list. The musician-turned-actor now has a few more under his belt, such as playing Allan Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dayle, one of Croweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Merry Men in the 2010 Ridley Scott-directed movie Robin Hood, as well as recurring tough guy and undercover cop Wolf Redmond in the CBCproduced and Newfoundland-based hit action TV show, Republic of Doyle. He also has a role in Croweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2014 film, Winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tale, as Dingy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a thief. Doyle was just recently named to play the villain Senator Gideon Robertson in a film adaptation of Strike!, a musical stage production that brings the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike to life. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also produced albums for actor Russell Crowe and Juno Award winners The Irish Descendants, and delivered soundtracks for the movie Young Triffieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Been Made Away With, and the television series Hatching, Matching, & Dispatching. When not on stage, Doyle is in high demand as a producer and arranger, sharing his love for music with many across Canada and around the world. Doyle said the band always looks forward to coming back to Ottawa, a city, he said, which has always supported the band and brought out thousands of fans looking to have a good time. Great Big Sea is widely known for playing lively rock interpretations of sea shanties and original feel-good songs such as Ordinary Day, Consequence Free, I Am King, End of the World, and island jigs including Paddy Murphy, Lukeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boat, and Captain Kidd, just to name a few. In celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band, they recently released

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

War Amps marks 95th anniversary this year DEAR EDITOR: I belong to Operation Legacy, a group of members of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program dedicated to preserving Canada’s military heritage and teaching other young people how to carry on the remembrance message. This year, The War Amps is celebrating a major anniversary. Ninetyfive years ago, First World War amputee veterans formed The Amputations Association of the Great War. The name was changed to The War Amputations of Canada when Second World War amputees joined their ranks. These men later started the CHAMP Program to assist young amputees like me. In addition to having had the privilege of learning about Canada’s military heritage from a young age, I also know what it is like to live without a limb – a strong bond that I share with war amputee veterans. Because of this, I feel it is my duty to ensure that the stories of war are preserved and its lessons never forgotten. Operation Legacy is a commitment to preserving our national mili-

tary heritage, and by doing so, we honour the men and women who have fought for us – even given their lives – to protect our rights and freedoms. And by passing on the stories of horror that these heroes have endured, it reminds us that war is something we never wish to face again. We remember that is better to choose peace over war and that standing up for what we believe in is what makes us Canadians. Champs in Operation Legacy wish to spread this message not only to the adults whose parents perhaps lived through war, or left a war-torn country to come to Canada, but also our youth, as they will be the ones who need to pass on the remembrance to the next generation so that we ensure that the legacy of our veterans is never forgotten. I encourage everyone – particularly young people – to learn more through The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries, which are available at a cost-recovery price at waramps.ca.

Food for thought Editorial – The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit released the results of their Nutritious Food Basket costing for 2013 and it certainly gives some food for thought. This is something done by all public health units in Ontario where the price of 67 food items is calculated from grocery stores in the tri-county area. The results put into perspective just how much it can take to feed a family of four (two adults and two children). They found that the cost is $178 per week or $772 per month, which reflects a nine per cent jump in the cost of food since 2010. We are all aware the cost of living has gone up, whether it’s a heat or hydro bill or the price of gas at the pumps. Part of the problem is that as families get bigger and costs grow, salaries don’t often rise along with them. According to the health unit, it becomes more difficult not only to purchase food but make healthy choices while also trying to pay rent and find the money for transportation. In fact, a 2011 Canadian Community Health Survey noted that 9.3 per cent of people in the tri-county said they couldn’t afford to put all the food they needed on the table. That’s why it’s so important to support local food banks and organizations such as the Salvation Army. While food banks are always in need of donations, as the holidays near, they are experiencing a much greater strain on their inventory. One of the largest seasonal initiatives, the Build a Mountain of Food Drive recently had its launch for another year and will be out at grocery stores throughout the area in November and December to collect food items for those who need it. They will be set up in Carleton Place, Almonte, Perth, Lanark, Smiths Falls, Westport, Elgin, Portland, Merrickville, Athens and Delta. Consider donating a few cans of non-perishable food items or filling a bag for your local food bank. Pay it forward. You never know when you may need their services.

Remembrance Day held in high regard for Mary and family Lifestyle – Mother was always concerned that we five children didn’t have the proper respect for the true meaning of Remembrance Day. The school at Northcote with only 18 pupils, had no piano, and the few county officials were already involved with the ceremony in the town of Renfrew, and so there was little in the way of observance at the school. For this reason, Mother, each year, piled all of us into the Model T and headed into town, where, as she put it, there would be a proper and fitting ceremony to remember those who had fallen in the First World War. Mother’s three young brothers had all been in the army, even though Mother said they weren’t old enough to vote, but they were old enough to fight in the war. By the way Mother talked about her brothers, I wondered if they perhaps had won the war singlehandedly! Without fail, the weather was always dreadful on Remembrance Day. We would drive through freezing rain or snow, it seemed, and at a very young

age, I wondered if the terrible weather had something mysterious to do with the somberness of the day. And so when we headed into Renfrew, we were bundled up like mummies, with hats and mitts, and winter boots. We certainly wouldn’t have the luxury of wearing slacks on such a day, and even though I usually hated them with a passion, I was very grateful for the heavy navy blue fleece-lined bloomers over our long underwear and long beige ribbed stockings. But it never mattered how much clothes we had on, there was always a piercing wind rolling down Raglan Street where the parade took place at the war memorial, and it penetrated our bodies and had us shivering like leaves on tree. The children from the Renfrew schools always marched to the place where the ceremony was to be held. We five country children were very aware that we weren’t really a part of a group, but that certainly didn’t matter to our mother.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

She would wait until the town school pupils had formed perfect lines, neither looking left or right, and then she would march the five of us right up to the front row, and position us so that we were actually an extension of the line-up of town kids. My older sister Audrey was most embarrassed, but her protests did nothing to sway our Mother. The town children had sheets of music, and we would shudder in embarrassment when we would see Mother walk right over to a teacher, whisper in her ear, and then point to us, and then we would see her head back to us with five sheets of music!

prehension, someone from the town ranks of pupils always fainted. Just as sure as death and taxes, as soon as the person leading the program opened his mouth, one or two would topple over. If the overcome person was a girl, the teacher would rush up, fan her with the sheet music, and if that didn’t help, she would be carried off with her eyes rolled into the back of her head. But if it was a boy pupil who had succumbed to the pressures of the day and toppled over, he was left to lie there until he either revived on his own, or the ceremony ended. Emerson said, on the way home, “those Renfrew kids are a sickly lot...certainly none of us ever fell over in a dead faint.” After all the war songs had been sung, out of the crowd would come a very old man with a shiny trumpet tucked under his arm.

He played the trumpet loud and clear as a bell, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd! The Renfrew children were the first to march off the parade grounds, and Emerson, not to be outdone by kids from town, turned on the heal of his gum-rubbers, and with his arms swinging, marched back down the street to where Mother had parked the Model T. On the road back to Northcote we would be subjected once again to Mother’s stories of how her own brothers went off to war, and often her voice would catch with the memory. But we knew she was filled with pride, and I too would be caught up in the stories, and would think of those uncles, who returned safely from battle, and unscarred...and I would think I was related to true war heroes. And then I would know, even though I was very young, why Remembrance Day was so important to our mother. • 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.

Insecticide linked to mass die-off of bees throughout Ottawa Valley derek.dunn@metroland.com

Dust is kicked up from a field tilled in Dunrobin. Grain farmers and beekeepers agree neonicotinoids are killing insects in mass numbers. They disagree whether “planter dust” is doing it or the crops – contaminated throughout – are poisoning them during pollination. Carleton between Pakenham and Arnprior. He has been an apiculturist since the mid 1970s when he took over his father-in-law’s farm. It supplements his income, along with driving a bus and one-time pursuits such as lambing. But beekeeping didn’t supplement his income last winter. “It was a wake up call,” said Polk, who is happy to produce 30,000 pounds of honey a year. He managed just 2,000 this year. “I’ve never experienced anything like this before.” Polk is aware of the neonicotinoids debate. He has mixed feelings over farming practices. On the one hand, he knows they must grow more and more efficient to keep up with the competition, including the use of pesticides. On the other hand, he says the relentless pursuit of profit at all costs is having a devastating affect on the natural world. “Farming has changed completely in my lifetime. They don’t even cultivate anymore,” he said. “They are perfecting the bottom line today, but maybe not tomorrow.” However, the die-off on Polk’s property this year had no direct link to neonicotinoids. It was the combination of a Varroa mite infestation and extreme weather. “We didn’t use enough treatment to solve the problem,” he said. “In July we had a cool period. And they never made honey after that.” Others would say neonicotinoids played an indirect role in the decima-

tion. After many years of usage, industrial insecticides are omnipresent: in water, soil, plants and animals such as bees. It could make them more susceptible to parasites and fungi. Polk accepts that the science isn’t out on a cause, but conventional wisdom tells him that the two don’t mix. “I think it’s a contamination but I don’t have any proof of that. There’s a lot of research to do, a lot of unknowns right now,” Polk said. “All I know is that pesticides and bees don’t mix well together. DuPont and Monsanto (companies) do lots of research, but nobody knows the long term.” Beekeepers are anxious for a solution to stave of future losses. Farmers are unwilling to change the status quo for fear of losing profit. That may seem like a strict dichotomy. But according to the Arnprior area’s vice president of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, Debra Pretty-Straathof, it is more complex. Those who farm corn and soya use neonicotinoids. They are predominately in south western Ontario. Farmers in the Ottawa Valley area include those who require pollination, either because they are growing vegetables or feeding animals on food that flowered. “You will have polar opposites in any group, but we are trying to work together,” Pretty-Straathof said. “Neither side wants to wipe out the other. Everybody wants to help (bees) but

News – About 30 per cent of bee colonies were lost last spring; the second year in a row for mass die-offs. The federal government has linked large-scale farming practices to the decline of insects that pollinate $2 billion worth of fruit and vegetables every year. In September Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) issued to farmers a series of recommendations against certain insecticides known as neonicotinoids. Is it enough to recommend against the usage of neonicotinoids? Dwight Foster is a farmer in North Gower. He’s been scratching a living off the land for many years. A grain farmer with 4,000 acres – and a feed lot with 1,500 head of cattle – Foster can’t underestimate how crucial insecticides are to his operation. “The seed treatment is very important for the development of the crops,” said Foster, a man of few words. He said there is no reason to rush to judgment on neonicotinoids; that very little science has been done on the issue in Canada. He wonders if insecticides are killing the bees or something else or a combination of multiple factors. Health Canada blamed last year’s dieoff to weather: one cold snap at the wrong time could devastate colonies. Then there’s exotic mites and fungi shipped in unwittingly or otherwise from far flung parts of the world that attack native bees. Or even if it is insecticide-related, at which point in the farming process do neonicotinoids attack them? Foster’s point is that no one at this stage can say for sure. And for him, the stakes are too high to act without certainty: a neonicotinoid ban would be a deal-breaker. “There’s no reason to throw the baby out with the bath water,” he said. “Without another product in place that does what it does, it would be huge disaster.” Many large-scale farm operations are highly efficient but deeply susceptible to unravelling at the slightest change. Expensive equipment needs to be paid for through expected high yields. The slow eating away at profit that nature caused in the past is, today, replaced by a solid defence against losses – thanks in large part to insecticides. Beekeeper Arnold Polk lives in West

be ingesting them. Health Canada regulators have proposed better labelling on insecticides and require farmers to implement safer seed planting practices. Those moves aren’t enough for beekeepers, who are fewer in number and therefore hold less clout over lawmakers. Another year of mass die-offs could harbour untold calamity for many common foods such as: apples, onions, pears, beans, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, common peppers, eggplant, tomatoes and much more. However, at this stage it doesn’t seem those welding power are willing to move any time soon. CarletonMississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren is a farmer, and sold seed to farmers throughout the region. He lauds the effectiveness of neonicotinoids while reserving judgement until further study is done. “It is commonly used on corn seed to protect against insects and disease. It does work. It helps farmers,” MacLaren said. “Canada has very stringent rules about pesticides.” Still, if further studies show them to be harmful to bees or other animals, MacLaren said he has no problem with an outright ban. R0012325198_0926

nobody wants to have a knee-jerk solution.” She said it is widely accepted among farmers that neonicotinoids are a cause. What is less certain, at least from the beekeepers side, is at what point the insecticides affect pollinators. PMRA is studying contaminated “planter dust.” The hypothesis states that a coating of insecticide on each seed comes off during the farming process. It creates a dust cloud that bees fly though, causing them to ingest the neonicotinoids and die. Anecdotal claims from southern Ontario on this theory reached Polk. “He (a beekeeper) said when (bees) were coming back through the cornfield they were falling like rain, and were in some kind of paralysis state,” Polk said. “They’ve lost hundreds of colonies of bees.” Critics say inhalation of dust plays a less significant role than does consumption. Neonicotinoids could be fused into the seed and, over many years, the soil, and taken up by the plant through the soil to kill insects feeding on them. Ponds and other water spots could be chemical soups after this many years of using insecticides too, adding to chances bees could

Coalition of book lovers bringing one-man show to Perth Arts – Bookworm, the highly acclaimed one-man show that celebrates a love of books, libraries and reading-forpleasure and has brought audiences to their feet in theatres across Canada, will be staged at the Studio Theatre in Perth in a special one-night only presentation on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 7:30 p.m. Written by and featuring Canadian songwriter and actor Corin Raymond, Bookworm is a powerfully moving story of the love shared between a father and son in tragic circumstances and the love of books and storytelling that transcends tensions between them and the adversities they face. MERA director Danny Sullivan, who spearheaded a campaign to bring the production to Perth, said “Bookworm is the kind of show that will make a nonreader want to go and look up stories from Greek mythology and peruse the fiction shelves at the library. At the same time, it will make a book-lover want to go and check out Spiderman.” “I first saw Bookworm at the Kingston Public Library last year, and I thought it was the best thing I’d ever seen in a library. I knew it was something that should come to Perth,” said Sullivan. Although, the Perth and District Union Public Library had heard about the show and were interested in it, they don’t have a space for large public presentations, such as most big-city libraries have. So Sullivan went to work putting together a coalition of sponsors to bring Bookworm to the Studio Theatre, including MERA, Perth & District Union Public Library, the Friends of the Library, the Humm and Backbeat Books and Music. Bookworm is a show that will appeal to all ages. “When I saw it in Kingston, a good proportion of the audience were highschool aged, and you could tell that they were spellbound from the very opening line, like everyone else in the room,” he said. “It appeals naturally to book lovers, but you don’t have to be a book-lover to be inspired by it – though it should come with a warning that it might turn you into a book-lover. Like any good theatrical presentation, though, it is centered around a story.” Bookworm is the story of a father reading to his son, growing up in a library, plus Spiderman, Ray Bradbury, and meeting the Minotaur for the first time just outside Wawa. Storytelling that has comedy, drama, plenty of beauty and life-inspiration, and a climax no one could possibly predict, all wrapped into one powerfully moving act. Dramaturged by TJ Dawe and directed by Morgan Jones Phillips Bookworm was first produced at the Hamilton Fringe Festival in the summer of 2011, and was an immediate hit, winning awards at fringe festivals across Canada, including the London Fringe Festival’s Producer’s Award and Pick of the Fringe at Vancouver’s Fringe. Since then, it has been staged in theatres, public libraries and at storyteller’s and writers festivals, to universally enthusiastic reviews: “Corin Raymond is a storyteller who by the end of the night you’ll have known all your life.” – Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail “What a gift. In this one-man show... Corin Raymond recalls a childhood surrounded by his father’s books, which offered comfort, reassurance, and escape from unusually lonely circumstances... Raymond has impeccable timing, and his performance is at once intimate,

openhearted, and evangelical: ‘Reading aloud to someone is a way to cross souls,’ he effuses, making you ache to return to your favourite books, recite poems from memory, and read aloud to someone you love.” – Kathleen Oliver, Georgia Straight, Sept. 6, 2012 “An ode to books and the people who love them, Raymond cleverly mixes everyday autobiography with an inherited love of what lies between the covers of his favourite books. A true story told with passion and grace, Bookworm is for anyone who loves to read, and reread, beloved books. Really, don’t miss this one.” – John Threlfall, CVV Magazine, Aug. 25 to 28, 2012 “Powered by the man’s warmth and wit...Raymond is a natural storyteller... he’s pleasant and accessible...like the guy you might meet in a bookstore on a rainy afternoon, that wants to talk books...Magic.” (4 Suns) – Colin MacLean, Edmonton Sun, Aug. 21, 2012 “Some storytellers leave you gaping, forgetful of your surroundings and only wanting more. Corin Raymond is this storyteller. It’s well-paced, wellperformed and will have you heading to the first bookstore as you leave the theatre...” (4 stars) – Samantha Power, Vue Weekly, Aug. 20, 2012 Raymond was a guest on CBC radio’s The Next Chapter with Sheelagh Rogers, where he explained that so many books get mentioned in Bookworm that he has produced an appendix itemizing Submitted photo all of the books, stories, poems and other titles referred to in the show. Canadian songwriter and actor Corin Raymond, above, will bring his “I’d come out the show and talk to acclaimed one-man show, Bookworm, to Perth’s Studio Theatre Sun- someone and I’d see they’d been writing day, Nov. 24. on their arm, so I have an appendix that

I can send to people,” Raymond said. Aside from his Bookworm performances, Corin Raymond is a singersongwriter known as one half of the Toronto-based duo The Undesirables. Paper Nickels, his recent live recording with backing band, The Sundowners, was released on two CDs as part of a 144-page hardcover book and made headlines across North-America for Raymond’s unique scheme to fund the recording by collecting thousands of dollars in Canadian-Tire money, enthusiastically donated by fans, friends, strangers and schoolchildren. Born in Winnipeg MB, and raised in southern Ontario, Raymond keeps ties between the two cities close to his heart and throughout his songs, while his career continues to be inspired by a dialogue between them. Raymond grew up in northern Ontario, learning to appreciate the small time from his dad, who raised him after his mother died. His father was a librarian, high-school teacher and bookseller. The pair lived in northern Ontario, north of Ear Falls, near Red Lake. “He exposed me to a lot of culture when I was growing up,” Raymond recalled. “He taught me to love books, theatre and film.” Bookworm is presented at the Studio Theatre in Perth, for one night only, on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $15 and advance tickets are available from Tickets Please, 39 Foster St. in Perth (Jo’s Clothes), by phone at 613-485-6434 or online at www.ticketsplease.ca.

Local municipalities to receive source protection grants News – Several municipalities are part of 24 in total who will receive source protection grants totaling at least $1,472,771 to help them implement local actions to protect drinking water sources. This is part of the province’s commitment of $13.5 million over the next three years to help support small, rural municipalities implement their source protection plans. Source protection planning was a recommendation of the Walkerton Inquiry. In 2000, seven people died and more than 2,000 became sick after drinking contaminated water supplied by the Walkerton

Drinking Water System. “We are taking care with source-totap protection of drinking water so we never have another Walkerton,” said Environment Minister Jim Bradley. Municipalities across the province are taking steps to protect wellhead areas and water intake zones such as upgrading fuel tanks to provide more protective spill containment and engineering stream banks to protect water from run-off and erosion. Grants range from $18,000 to $100,000. Municipalities have already worked with their partners to identify significant drinking water threats and complete source water protec-

tion plans. Municipalities receiving funding include: County of Lanark ($43,204); Town of Carleton Place ($61,331); Town of Mississippi Mills ($58,568); Town of Perth ($68,694); Town of Smiths Falls ($50,000); Township of Montague ($63,888); Township of Beckwith ($59,534); Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley ($67,016); Township of Rideau Lakes ($62,472); Township of Tay Valley ($54,634); Municipality of North Grenville ($57,518); United Counties of Leeds and Grenville ($52,061); Village of Westport ($73,954); and Village of Merrickville-Wolford ($67,708). Municipalities may be eligible for

an additional collaboration incentive of up to $15,000 if they collaborate with other municipalities: • $5,000 for collaborating with one or two other municipalities • $10,000 for collaborating with three other municipalities • $15,000 for collaborating with four or more municipalities Municipalities will also develop education and outreach programs about threats to their local drinking water supplies and best practices for dealing with these threats. There are 19 source protection regions across the province.

Upper Canada District School Board asks for increase in bus sharing News – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) and its students have benefitted from increased efficiency by the Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) busing consortium. However, trustees recommended the consortium improve its operations even more. Members passed a resolution Oct. 23 asking STEO to undertake a feasibility study to accomplish the consortium’s shared busing targets in a shorter period of time. Statistics released at the board’s regular meeting Oct. 23 suggest the overall capacity rate of buses contracted by STEO is extremely high and that the use of shared vehicles is rising – indicating that UCDSB students are benefiting from an improving operation, said 1st vice-chair Jeff McMillan.

“Staff members at STEO are really working hard to be as efficient as they can,” said McMillan. “We are seeing real growth.” STEO is a consortium established between the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) and the UCDSB to administer transportation. STEO transports 35,000 students daily. Statistics provided by STEO and presented at the meeting by McMillan indicate the use of shared busing through the consortium has increased. The number of students riding shared routes has risen from 2.5 per cent last year to seven per cent of the bused population. It represents an increase from 875 last year to 2,500 students this year. Shared busing means that students from both boards

are riding on the same bus at the same time. The number of students riding double bus routes has also increased from eight per cent to 18 per cent of the bused population. This represents an increase in students riding double routes from 2,800 last year to 6,300 this school year. A “double route” means that a single bus accomplishes one run carrying students from one board, then accomplishes a second run carrying students from the other board. Among the other ways the board has benefitted through its participation in the consortium is that STEO has a vehicle capacity rate of 80 per cent. The high rate indicates that STEO is utilizing its fleet effectively. Over the next five years, the goal of

THE EMC - 10 - Thursday, November 7, 2013

STEO is to increase double route busing to 50 per cent of all students transported, and to increase students riding at the same time, same bus to 25 per cent of the bused population. While board members conceded that STEO is improving its operations, trustee Lisa Swan proposed the motion to see if efficiencies could be increased even more. Committee of the Whole also recommended that the Upper Canada District School Board recognize the International Day for People with Disabilities on Dec. 3. The busing matter will come before the board for further discussion on Nov. 13. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

Many benefits to using rain barrels Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rainbarrels are beautiful because theyâ&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;˘ Store and distribute clean, chemical-free water at no cost â&#x20AC;˘ Reduce erosion and sediment loading in local streams/lakes by reducing runoff from your property â&#x20AC;˘ Promote infiltration of water into the ground to replenish our groundwater supply â&#x20AC;˘ Decrease your water bill if your drinking water is metered It only makes sense to save and use what Mother Nature gives us rather than making the expensive municipal drinking water system or your private well work hard to produce water for gardening. Capturing rainwater In the past two years, the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation and our local partners have sold 870 barrels at four partnered sales in the watershed. The foundation and the local partners each earned some money for community activities. In addition to that, we know that each barrel captures 220 litres (L) of rainwater per storm event which is then used by the householder in the garden (infiltrating the water into the ground). During each storm event, our 870 barrels capture about 191,000 L of rainwater and stop it from running directly into the surrounding watercourses (a good thing). If we assume six storms per growing season, it means that a total of 1.1 million L of rainwater is diverted from a nasty career of direct runoff

into a much more honorable role of producing flowers, vegetables and kitchen herbs. If we further add the hundreds of other rain barrels sold by other groups in the Rideau Valley, it is reasonable to imagine literally millions more litres of potentially damaging runoff being diverted from the Rideau system for use in beautiful gardens every year. This is indeed a very good thing. Winterizing your rain barrel Now that Thanksgivingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past and the outdoor furniture is cleaned up (using rain barrel water) and safely tucked away for another season, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to â&#x20AC;&#x153;winterizeâ&#x20AC;? your trusty old rain barrel for longer life and better performance in four easy steps: â&#x20AC;˘ Disconnect the eavestrough downspout from the barrel (donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to reconnect a downspout extension to funnel water away from house foundations) â&#x20AC;˘ Empty and rinse the rain barrel â&#x20AC;˘ Keep the screen, the valves and the hose together in one box â&#x20AC;˘ S tore the barrel upside down either outside or in your garage or basement. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a rain barrel yet, especially at the cottage, you can pick them up very inexpensively at one of the conservation foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rain barrel sales in late spring 2014.

Local resident considers herself lucky to have cancer society transportation program By GENA GIBSON For Canadian Cancer Society of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville

News – When her husband received a cancer diagnosis in several years ago, Diane Campbell learned the importance of the Canadian Cancer Society’s transportation program. She travelled with Vernon to appointments and treatments, and saw how the volunteer drivers handled their duties with care and patience. Last year, seven years after Vernon died of cancer at the age of 68, Diane received a cancer diagnosis of her own. Living in rural Clyde Forks without a driver’s licence, she knew she would have to rely on the cancer society again. “I love them,” she said of the various drivers who had taken her to Kingston for appointments. “They’re 100-per-cent perfect.” Although Campbell will move to Kingston in mid-November at the request of her children while she undergoes several months of treatments, she has regular doctor appointments, both in Lanark and in Kingston. She said she always asks for five days’ notice, so she can give the drivers time to fit her into their schedules.

Carol Alexander of Tatlock is one of her regular volunteer drivers, and is, according to Diane, “the best thing since sliced bread.” When Alexander was a teacher in Almonte, she taught one of Diane’s children, and now they have created a closer bond through the volunteer-driver program. “It doesn’t matter who I’ve had (driving me),” she stressed. “I just can’t believe how perfect they are – I don’t know how to describe it. “I just appreciate it.” Diane started using the drivers last year, when doctors found cancer between her bladder and her uterus. She had chemotherapy and radiation, and will start chemotherapy treatments in November with a new drug, Yervoy, used to treat melanoma that has spread to other parts of the body. “I consider myself so lucky to have the volunteer drivers,” she stressed. She said that Vernon asked for all donations to go to the volunteer-driver program of the Canadian Cancer Society, and she plans to do the same in her will. She also plans to donate to the Wheels of Hope campaign, which is a fundraising campaign that runs from September to December. Money

raised goes to fund the Canadian Cancer Society’s local transportation program, which is a no-charge service to clients that will take them to and from cancer-related appointments. Diane said the drivers she has are all personable and friendly, and happy to wait at appointments or be available by telephone when the appointment ends. The Canadian Cancer Society’s Lanark, Leeds and Grenville community office covers the area from Gananoque to Cardinal, as well as Lanark County and everything in between. Last year, the transportation program filled 3,560 requests, with drivers covering 299, 518 kilometres to take 339 local clients to their appointments. The program in the tri-county unit cost more than $84,200, as the average cost to take one patient to a round-trip appointment is $60 due to the distances that clients need to travel compared to those in other parts of Ontario. If you would like to help get a local cancer patient to their cancer treatments you can donate to the Wheels of Hope program by calling 613-2671058 or 1-800-367-2913.

UCDSB hosts event to encourage girls to enter trades Nov. 18 to 22 News – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) is hosting a special event to let young girls know the value of a career in the trades. The board’s Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP), and that of the coterminous board, will host Living the Skilled Life, from Nov. 18 to 22 at the University of Guelph, Kemptville Campus. The event will encourage females in Grade 10 to enter the trades by exposing them to a learning experience in horticulture, welding, and truck and coach diesel mechanic. “There’s a real shortage of tradespeople in Ontario,” said Alex MacDougall, OYAP facilitator for the UCDSB. “Four out of ten new jobs over the next twenty years will be in the trades.

the year 2020, Canada will be short one million skilled tradespeople and in Ontario alone 26 per cent of the skilled workers will be retiring over the next ten years.” Skilled tradespeople earn competitive wages that can provide a comfortable lifestyle, said MacDougall. During each day of the session, 15 girls from the UCDSB and another 15 from the coterminous board, will gather in groups of ten, and then rotate through demonstrations of each trade to get a feel for it. When participants first arrive, they will be addressed by a third-year female apprentice welder who will give them an idea of what it is like to be a female working in the trades.

Mudds’ youth performers serve up admirable work in Othello ice’ is actually based on a short story by an Italian author. The play revolves around four main characters. Othello, the namesake lead, is a general in the service of Venice. Female performers in male roles dominated the Mudds’ effort. Dayna Stone, as Othello, had a very difficult task with the dialogue-heavy role and handled it admirably. The other central characters are Othello’s new wife Desdemona (Leah West), his lieutenant Cassio (Katie Irvine) and his trusted ensign Iago (Hayley Fortier). Clearly there was a shortage of males willing to tackle such demanding roles. But the young ladies in this production did a good job. Special mention must be made of Fortier’s efforts as Iago. Hers was the most difficult role of all and she handled it flawlessly. So much to say and such a good job saying it! I didn’t detect a single miss and if there was any prompting I couldn’t detect it. The Cole’s Notes

version of the play is as follows. The highly ambitious Iago becomes jealous when Othello promotes Michael Cassio to be his personal aide. He plots against the hero. After Othello elopes with the lovely Desdemona the plot (and plotting) thickens. Murder afoot A dropped handkerchief is central to the story. Othello is tricked into becoming jealous of his beloved Desdemona. As his rage grows he plans to kill her. Murder is afoot as the story reaches its climax. Othello returns to the castle to kill his innocent wife (he eventually smothers her to death). Emilia, Iago’s wife and Desdemona’s devoted maidservant, eventually tells Othello the truth about her (Emilia’s) scheming husband. Regular Mudds’ youth performer Candice Burn also deserves to be singled out for her work as Emilia. She not only handled the demands of the dialogue well but she has a very expressive face.

Her strong effort stood out to me. Evan Sauve as the luckless Roderigo also turned in a solid effort. Roderigo, who lusts after Desdemona, is killed by Iago when the attempted assassination of Cassio (Irvine) fails. I made note that with such an impressive voice Sauve may have a lead role in his future? Besides the main six characters a supporting cast of nine helped make this staging a success. I was also impressed with the brief, but sultry performance, turned in by Lydia Charron as Bianca, Cassio’s jealous lover. As the play reaches its bloody, tragic conclusion a flurry of madness sees Othello deliberately wound Iago. He decides he would rather make Iago suffer in pain rather than finishing him off. Both face punishment for the murders they commit. The conclusion comes suddenly when Othello, wracked with guilt after learning of Desdemona’s innocence, commits suicide with a dagger he

has concealed. Credit to director Mark Piper (he also directed Macbeth two years ago), producer Wendy Jewell and associate producer Janice Bowie (another Mudds’ regular) for bringing this cast together and coaching them so well. Shakespeare’s work is short on scenery and long on discourse. When I think of Othello, I always recall the brilliant work of the late, great African-American actor, singer, athlete and activist Paul Robeson. The staging of Othello on Broadway, with Robeson in the lead, was the longest running production of a Shakespeare

play ever staged along the “Great White Way.” There’s no question the popular play was a major undertaking for a youth theatre troupe. But somehow I think Robeson – and Shakespeare – would be proud of the effort put forth by this young cast in Carleton Place, Ontario more than 400 years after Othello was penned. The production concluded with matinee and evening performances Saturday. For complete information on the Mississippi Mudds and their upcoming shows visit the website: www.mississippimudds. ca.

Arts – The Mississippi Mudds Youth Theatre in Carleton Place took on a major challenge this fall, tackling Shakespeare’s timeless ‘Othello.’ The young actors did a more than credible job of presenting the classic tale of love, jealousy, betrayal and murder. The only downside is that more people didn’t line up for tickets to see the four performances staged in the historic Carleton Place Town Hall Auditorium. I will admit that I went to last Friday’s presentation with no particular expectations. Although Othello is often performed by community theatre groups, it is a challenge for a relatively new youth troupe. Mudds Youth Theatre only began staging productions here in 2009. In fall 2011 the fledgling company presented Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’, also a difficult assignment. During the showing of Macbeth I attended the cast worked hard but needed quite a bit of help from

the prompters and experienced some jitters in front of a full house. Hardly surprising given the depth of the material! A smaller audience was on hand for the second of four presentations of Othello last Friday. Just like Macbeth the young Mudds performed in the round, operating on the auditorium floor with a minimum of costumes and props. I left the theatre very impressed. This was a modern telling of the tragic story, something we have come to expect as directors and performers drop the old English and bring William Shakespeare’s wonderful work into the mainstream. One good example is the contemporary film telling of the bard’s popular comedy ‘Much Ado About Nothing.’ Director Joss Whedon’s 2013 movie stars Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof. Anyone familiar with Othello knows it’s pretty heavy going! Believed to have been written in 1603, ‘The Tragedy of Othello: Moor of Ven-

Famous author Alice Munro has Lanark County connection Lifestyle – Last week I spent an enjoyable afternoon interviewing two sisters who are very proud of a famous cousin of theirs and would like more people to know about her connection to this region. Eleanor Henderson and Irene Papworth (nee Chamney) are first cousins of Alice Munro who, on Oct. 10, became the first Canadian woman ever to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Munro, 82, a native of Wingham, Ontario is just the 13th woman to win the award sponsored by the Swedish society since it was inaugurated 112 years ago. During the awards announcement in Stockholm, Munro was praised as “the master of the contemporary short story.” Her body of fictional work goes back to 1968 and her highly acclaimed first collection of short stories entitled ‘Dance of the Happy Shades.’ She has written many outstanding short story collections since then. Most are set in her native Huron County. Wingham is 50 kilometres from the Lake Huron town of Goderich. Munro’s strong regional focus is considered one of the strengths of her fiction. She currently lives in Clinton, Ontario not far from her hometown. Although the Nobel Prize is undoubtedly her greatest honour, the author also captured the 2009 Man Brooker International Prize (from the UK based Man Group) in recognition of her body of work. In Canada Munro is a three-time winner of the Governor General’s Award for fiction. She has also won other awards presented by organizations in Canada, the

United States and France. In early October she was named as the 2013 recipient of the $25,000 Harbourfest Festival Prize presented by the Toronto International Festival of Authors. Munro told CBC News that she had always considered winning the Nobel Prize “one of those pipe dreams that might happen but probably wouldn’t.” Unfortunately the writer’s health has been poor in recent years and media reports say she is unlikely to attend the actual award presentation ceremony scheduled for Stockholm on Dec. 10. The Nobel Prize, one of the most prestigious in

the literary world, carries a cash prize of eight million Swedish kroner, about $1.2 million US. Little wonder her cousins here are so proud of her. Munro’s accomplishments stand with those of the very best writers in history. She is often called “the English Chekhov.” Munro’s mother was Anne Clarke Chamney. She, Henderson and Papworth share a grandfather, the late George Chamney. Their grandmother Bertha (nee Stanley) was a school teacher. The Chamney girls grew up on the family farm at Scotch Corners on the west side of Mississippi

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

Lake, 12 km southwest of Carleton Place. The descendants of Irish immigrants the ladies’ great grandfather Edward secured a land grant in Lanark County. Munro’s great grandparents and later her grandparents farmed for decades. Edward Chamney married Ann Code which means the Chamneys, Codes and Stanleys are all related. Among the descendants

are a number of Codes who currently live in Carleton Place and district. Early life Munro’s mother Anne, who also became a schoolteacher, met and married Robert Eric Laidlaw a fox and mink farmer. Earlier in the family history, with opportunities to secure land in Eastern Ontario waning, members of the Code family moved to Huron County, settling near Wingham. It was there that another descendant, Alice Munro, grew up and attended school. She published her first short story as a teenager. Alice went on to study

English and journalism at the University of Western Ontario in nearby London. There she met fellow student James Munro. She left school to marry him. The young couple headed west, first to Vancouver and then, in 1963, to Victoria on Vancouver Island where they opened a book store. Eleanor Henderson notes that the store, which helped revive her cousin’s interest in writing, is still operating. The Munro’s had four children, one of whom died in infancy. They eventually divorced and Alice moved back to Ontario. She later married Gerald Fremlin, a World War II air force veteran who worked as a geographer and cartographer. Fremlin died in April of this year. Henderson, who continued the family tradition by becoming a school teacher, married Eldon Henderson who later served as the mayor of Carleton Place in the 1970s. The couple also had four children. Eleanor has followed her famous cousin’s writing career from afar. Munro did spend some summers at the family farm near Scotch Corners, but Henderson was too young to remember that. Munro herself does remember however! She told Henderson’s oldest son Scott, now the vicepresident of communications for Bell Media in Toronto (including CTV television), about meeting his mother when she (Eleanor) was very young. Scott contacted Munro by

Alice Munro is shown with her cousin Scott Henderson, a Carleton Place native, at the 2007 Giller Awards ceremony in Toronto. Munro won the Giller in 2004. Last month the popular Canadian author received the biggest honour of her out-

standing career when she was named the 2013 recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. She is the first Canadian woman to claim the prestigious award and just the 13th female winner in the 112-year history of the honour.

mail when he was 14 to introduce himself. The author is too busy to be in regular contact with her extended family although she has stayed in touch with Henderson’s cousin Muriel in Perth, the daughter of her Uncle Joe Chamney. Scott Henderson’s letter prompted a Christmas message from Munro. In the letter to Eleanor she expressed delight at hearing from him. “I think Scott believes we never met,” she wrote her Carleton Place cousin. “But of course we did. I remember you when you were about six. You had blonde hair and I think brown eyes, small bones and delicate features.” Munro’s comments about his mother as a young girl surprised Scott. So much so that he wrote about it in an article he penned about Munro which was published by the Toronto Star in 2001. In the newspaper column he says he was even more surprised to learn that “many of Alice’s characters and settings were often based in reality and, in some instances, my reality too.” Scott Henderson has since met his second cousin in person. They were photographed together in 2007 at the Giller Awards ceremony in Toronto. Munro captured the 2004 Giller prize for her book ‘Runaway’ a series of short stories exploring the lives of women their loves, desires and relationships. See COLUMN page 24

This 1965 Ford Falcon has just 13,000 original miles Lifestyle – Ever notice how some stories just seem to jump right off the page? Such is the story that arrived recently from John Ziler, who lives near Ailsa Craig, a small town within easy driving distance of Sarnia,. Ontario: “I bought my 1965 Falcon three years ago. I had tried one out in 1965 but just having my first job, I couldn’t afford the monthly payments so had to settle for a Volkswagen. And now, 44 years later, I purchased this one. It has no options except an automatic and came with a 170 cubic inch six cylinder motor. When I bought it, it had just over 10,000 miles. It now has 13,000 miles on it. “It was bought new in 1965 from Eastway Ford in Hamilton and still has the original dealer sticker, owner’s manual, and sales brochure. The man who bought it new in March 1965 worked for Ford in Oakville and helped build the car. He died in December of that year and his wife put it in the garage where it stayed for 40 years. The cats were getting into the car so she put a rug over the hood. Obviously surface rust developed under the rug but the rest of the car was quite rust free. “When his wife died, the daughter gave the car to her nephew, who was going to put a V8 in it and race it. Fortunately, someone told him this would be terrible to do to such an original car. He put a new tank in it, new lines, and new tires. I just replaced the original exhaust pipe and

it still has the original brake shoes. “When I purchased it, I just wanted to have the front painted and leave the remainder original but there was no guarantee that the paint would match so I had the whole car painted in the original colour. It is a great car to service and drive and a wonderful ‘barn find.’” It’s interesting to note that John John Ziler’s 1965 Falcon 4-door sedan, still just like new! Ziler purchased a Volkswagen when he discovered he could not afford a new Falcon when he wanted one prized possessions. in 1965. It was the popularity of “She toured the farm house (then the Volkswagen in the 1950s that From page 23 owned by Wilf and Sandra Cook) and the prompted the Big Three to bring out school house,” Henderson recalls.

For her efforts Henderson received a copy of the book which her oldest sister is currently reading. Both have read Munro’s books and chuckle when referring to “the sexy bits”. Henderson admits her cousin’s writing style didn’t appeal to some residents of her hometown (Wingham) when her books first hit the market. “But now that she’s famous I think the town is very proud to be able to call her one of their own,” she says with a smile.

Road crashes impact entire community theme of day of remembrance Lifestyle – The Ontario Ministry of Transportation is launching a public awareness campaign to coincide with the National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims (NDRRCV) which is taking place Nov. 20. There will be an event held in Ottawa this year to mark this date. The theme for this year is “Road crashes impact an entire community”. The series of ads and public service announcements concentrate on the four highrisk behaviors that cause the most collisions; distracted, aggressive, impaired driving and seatbelts. The common title for each campaign segment should light up your vehicle’s instrument panel at every start up: “Drive with Caution – Future Ahead”. It’s a reminder that every vehicle collision has a consequence

and it almost always involves changing someone’s future for the worse. With winter tire season upon us, my email inbox is getting filled up with questions. Here’s a few of the more common ones. What about 12-month or all-season/winter tires? These were first brought out a few years back by Good Year under the ‘Triple-Tred’ moniker and Good Year remains the main player in this segment. They carry the mountainsnowflake symbol and are certified winter tires. But at best they are a compromise between the longevity of an all-season (read summer) tire and the grip of a true winter tire. They will last slightly longer on average than a traditional winter tire, but will not get the mileage that a comparable summer tire

does. For those snow-birds that drive south for the winter, they can be a convenient alternative to driving down on snows and then switching to summers for the duration of the southern hibernation. Heavier vehicles seem to have better traction on the roads; do they still need snow tires? This one came from a reader comparing his Mazda Protégé hatchback (which was equipped with snows) to a Ford Windstar van which wore summer boots all year long. While minivans can

have better traction due to their mass and front wheel drive set up, they can still ‘break loose’ on poor road conditions and I can testify from experience that when they start to lose control, it will take a good set of tires and a lot of driving skill (that I didn’t have) and luck (that I did, I’m still here) to avoid hitting the ditch or worse. This minivan owner stated he simply drove at lower speeds on the highway when conditions were poor. While driving the correct speed for

weather and road conditions is always a great idea, being extra cautious is an admission that summer tires don’t provide the same control as winters. Tires will wear out no matter which type you have on, so putting on proper snows won’t really cost any extra. Go with the right gear for the season and that means winter tires for Canadian winters. This same reader did send along a helpful tip for finding tire bargains by searching online want ads like kijiji, for example. He correctly pointed out that when many people trade up to a new or newer vehicle, they usually have a set of snow tires (with or without rims) in their garage that

to her weekly visit. Mom often commented on what a wonderful person she is, so natural and down to earth. “She is one of us” mom would so often say.” This is one of the many scenarios, happening right now with Community Home Support’s Volunteer Hospice Visiting Service. Volunteer Hospice Visitors are needed in Perth, Smiths Falls and surrounding areas to support people living with serious illness and those who are dying in their homes and in the hospital. Visiting Service Volunteers compassionately support the individual needs of each client and their loved ones. The Hospice Volunteers are an integral part of the Circle of Care for clients and their families, fulfilling their role to ease the journey of illness and care. Volunteers provide confidential and non-judgmental support up to four hours per week, often in the form of

News – The Volunteer Hospice Visitors of Community Home Support-Lanark County have heart! Clients often refer to their Hospice Volunteers as “friends” or “family members”. A client’s daughter recently sent me a letter. She wrote, “You actually sent an angel to me who so kindly volunteered to visit my mother, without fail, every Thursday until she passed away in July of this year. The volunteer’s visits to my mother gave me that needed break which I so appreciated. I used that free time to go to Kingston with friends for a movie and dinner or to visit my daughter and her family in Kingston, or simply a day on my own to do just as I pleased. The volunteer’s visits served a double purpose – they not only helped me, but were also especially beneficial for my mother who loved the volunteer and always looked forward

Make sure to get an exact size match as the slightest differences in sizing may mean major headaches in terms of fit on your vehicle and possible failures of anti-lock brake and/or other computer controlled vehicle systems. Another question came in regarding all-wheel drive vehicles and whether or not they presented any special challenges when it came to winter tire choices. Other than they need winter tires on every wheel just as much as a rear-wheel or front-wheel drive vehicle, there really isn’t anything special about them. Par-

Halloween enjoyed by many throughout area

Photos by JENNIFER WESTENDORP

Halloween a frightful good time Community - Kids of all ages had fun gathering candy in Oxford Mills on October 31. The village was alight with goblins and ghouls â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and even a werewolf â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on Halloween. The streets were filled with children delighting in the age of tradition of trick-or-treating. On the leftl, two-year-old Jack Hamilton and his big sister Tamika paired up for protection against the ghosts that loom the streets on Halloween. In the middle, for the very first time, three-year-old Jakob Dutfield braved the dark streets to gather candy. On the right, Fiveyear-old Hendrick Westendorp was brave enough to play the part of tree to a ball python, while visiting the Haunted Hall.

Spooky family Community - Halloween enthusiasts, this family spends three months setting up an elaborate haunted walk in their basement and the entire family including aunts and in-laws travels from Ottawa and Winchester to take part. The popularity of their event has encouraged them to collect donations for various charities, this year they collected $75 for the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital. As part of their elaborate Halloween walk, Alana Roche is the unfortunate having her organs removed by ghoulish surgeon Tori Cotton.

LAWS annual general meeting set for this Saturday in Carleton Place Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It is that time of year again where Lanark Animal Welfare Society hosts its annual meeting. Please join us at our annual general meeting (AGM) on Saturday, Nov. 9 to find out how the shelter has persevered over the past year and what our expectations are for the coming year. The AGM will be held at Taniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dance Studio, which is located at 55 Lansdowne Avenue in Carleton Place and runs from 6 to 8 p.m. that evening. The meeting is open to the public, however only those with a membership can vote. We hope to see everyone there! Contract renewed LAWS is happy to report a renewed contract with the town of Smiths Falls as of Oct. 1. This renewed contract has allowed LAWS to provide shelter and care for nine stray Smiths Falls animals since Oct. 1. We are very pleased that we are able to be a positive and active participant again in the stray animal population of Smiths Falls. We are also very pleased to report that all of the animals at the shelter are in excellent health and are only in need of their forever homes.

Young actor offers up memorable performance in Ender’s Game MOVIE: Ender’s Game STARRING: Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin and Ben Kingsley DIRECTOR: Gavin Hood RATING: PG Arts – Ender Wiggin is one of my favourite fictional characters. He’s a uniquely interesting combination of strength, genius, empathy, ruthlessness, and sadness. When I saw the first trailer for Ender’s Game I was filled with both excitement and dread. Excitement at the prospect of seeing one of my favourite books on the big screen, and dread at the possibility they’d screw it up. Thankfully they didn’t. When the aliens attack Earth they are looking to colonize our planet. We only barely manage to fight them off, but the lesson of their attack is not lost. The International Military would spend the next 50 years preparing for the Formics return. Ever since it was discovered only young minds have the flexibility to process the amount of data required to orchestrate massive space battles, the International Military has been recruiting the brightest of Earth’s children. Ender Wiggin

(Asa Butterfield) is perhaps the brightest tactical mind Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) has ever seen. Ender is brought to Battle School where his training begins. He is pushed harder and harder by Colonel Graff, and each time Ender finds a way to win. Soon Ender and his team, Bean (Aramis Knight), Petra (Hailee Steinfeld) and the rest, are promoted to Command School where they’re pushed even harder. Graff believes Ender is humanity’s only hope to end the Formic threat. Ender himself is caught in an internal struggle between wanting to save humanity, and not wanting to become a heartless killing machine. Ender wins because he knows his enemy. The trouble is when you know your enemy well enough to destroy them,

you know them well enough to love them. This is what tears at Ender’s soul. There were times during Ender’s Game when I felt they rushed things. I suppose that’s just the difference between books and movies. Books have all the time in the world for developing story, setting and characters. Movies don’t always have that luxury. Despite that however, Ender’s Game gets so much of this story right I was willing to overlook the few flaws. This is an incredible film with wonderful visuals, a remarkable cast, and a story that’s thrilling, inspiring and beautifully sad. From Aramis Knight as Bean, to Hailee Steinfeld as Petra, to Moises Arias as Bonzo to Abigail Breslin as Valentine Wiggin this cast is perfectly chosen. Viola Davis is brilliant

as Major Gwen Anderson, and I love Ben Kingsley as legendary hero Mazer Rackham. For his part Harrison Ford plays Colonel Graff with such conviction you could almost forgive him for what he does to Ender. Then there is Ender. Asa Butterfield is a better Ender than I could have hoped for. He portrays all of Ender’s depth right to the very soul of the character. Good science fiction isn’t about aliens or spaceships, it’s about holding a mirror up to ourselves. Ender’s Game is very good science fiction. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

November full of excitement Legion to bring focus on helping homeless veterans at Perth’s Full Circle Theatre series of storytelling for adults begins with A Dubious Blessing: Two Old Women Speak, featuring storyteller Marta Singh. The show is a personalized story built around two folk tales, one from Russia and one from Argentina. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets for both of the above shows are available at Tickets Please, 39 Foster Street, www. ticketsplease.ca or 613-4856434. Meanwhile, Film Night International concludes its fall series this month. Nov. 20 offers No, a Chilean film, with English subtitles, about the struggle for the return of democracy in Chile in 1988. It will be shown at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. And, BarnDoor Productions is auditioning on Nov. 18 for their February production, the racy and shocking comedy You’ve Got Hate Mail. This is a threewoman, two-man show for performers who are willing to be daring and an audience who are willing to be dared. If you think

that’s you, come out at 7 p.m. on Nov. 18. See the audition page at www.barndoorproductions.ca for more details and a link to an extract from the script. A warning: this is definitely an adults-only production. On a more family-oriented note, make plans to see BarnDoor’s Christmas play, Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some), running Dec. 6 to 15. When three actors just can’t face another performance of A Christmas Carol, they decide to tell every Christmas story ever told, instead. The result is holiday silliness, with everything from Charlie Brown to Gustav, The Green-Nosed Reingoat making appearances (because Rudolph is still in copyright). It will be great Christmas fun. A busy month at FCT with great entertainment of different kinds and a lot more to come at Perth’s only ground-level, barrier-free theatre. Full details are available at www.barndoorproductions.ca.

towards the goal of ensuring that every Provincial Command establishes a homeless veterans program tailored to meet their unique community needs,” says Gordon Moore, Dominion president of the Royal Canadian Legion. The program’s mission is to reach out to homeless veterans, or near homeless veterans, by providing immediate financial assistance and support when and where needed. It also connects them with the appropriate social and community services to establish a long-term solution to meet their needs. While the Legion continues to build on programs in urban centres across the country as the framework for the

Legion’s National Homeless Veterans Program, the next step is bringing together select national service providers and organizations to identify priority areas and gaps in several key areas including causes of homelessness, outreach and communication, services and programs, accessibility and coordination of effort. Across Canada, Legion Provincial Commands are working closely with Veterans Affairs, shelters and community organizations to get veterans off the street and into transition programs. Details on the summit will be updated on the Royal Canadian Legion website: www. legion.ca.

Arts – After a great start to the season with BarnDoor Productions’ hilarious The 39 Steps, live theatre is back with the Perth Community Choir’s annual fall production. Director Kristy Angel brings a strong cast and a powerful orchestra together for the Tony Award-winning musical The Secret Garden. Running Nov. 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 10 and 17 at 2:30 p.m., The Secret Garden is based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. It’s the story of an orphaned girl brought to a loveless house and how she changes everything around her. Filled with wonderful music and great characters, The Secret Garden musical was written by Marsha Norman and Lucy Siman, winning three Tonys in 1991, including a Best Actress Award for the girl playing the orphan, the youngest ever to win a Tony. Nov. 23 marks to opening of 2 women productions’ third season at Full Circle Theatre (FCT). The

SANSOME, David – His ship sailed November 11, 2010. A ship sailed and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says “She is gone”. Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large now as when I last saw her. Her diminished size and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says she is gone there are others who are watching her coming over their horizon and other voices take up a glad shout “There she comes!” That is what dying is. A horizon and just the limit of our sight. Lift us up, Oh Lord, that we may see further. Always in our hearts Sheila, Alan and Meghan

In a quiet country grave yard Where the gentle breezes blow, Lies the one we loved so dearly Whom we lost six years ago, His resting place we visit And place flowers there with care But no one knows the sorrow As we turn and leave him there. Dearly missed and loved forever Leotha, children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren DIZZELL, Jim- In memory of a dear Husband, Dad and Poppy who passed away November 9, 2008. As time has unfolded the last 5 years Our memories will always keep you near. You suffered so much in silence Your spirit did not bend You tried so hard to stay with us until the very end. You had a kindly word for all It’s such a pleasure to recall. We will always cherish your memories and let them live on in us forever. Never forgotten, Babe, Brendaleah (John), Orville (Christine) and grandchildren.

THOMAS - We lost you dear Leonard in 2009. I think of you dear husband only every day, Our many years together are locked in my heart to stay. And our loving son Stanley we lost in 2004. And our precious daughter Carolyn in 1969. And our dear son-in-law Kerry in 2012. Though years still come and go, Memories of our loved ones are in our hearts to stay. Though you are gone from this world you walk with us everyday. Loved and missed forever Wife and mother Gladys Sisters, brother, spouses and their families

Community invited to tour medicinal marijuana facility By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Jim Pevere and Jim Jenkins, in their office at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95. Their goal is to track down every veteran in town who might be eligible for a pension.

Legion service officers determined to reach every veteran hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably the least celebrated people in our community and yet these volunteers put in more hours helping our veterans than they would at a full-time job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just out at Willowdale this morning to meet with a veteran who had just been awarded his pension - heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a (Second World War) veteran and is just getting his pension now,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Jenkins, one of two veterans service officers with the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95. That veteran who had been

wounded during the war would never have received his pension were it not for Jenkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; efforts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I happened to talk to his daughter who goes to the same church as I and she told me her dad was a WWII vet, so I asked her if he was getting a pension and she said she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think so,â&#x20AC;? said Jenkins. So Jenkins took the initiative to go and talk to the gentleman in question and found out that he was certainly entitled to apply for a pension. The application was sent out in April and the pension awarded by October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 10 months weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put in 47 claims to Veterans Affairs on be-

half of veterans, of those 47 as of this week, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been successful in six and we have three under appeal,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Pevere, the second veterans service officer of the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95. The rest of those claims are pending according to Jenkins since it takes anywhere from three to five months for a claim to be processed. Until recently, just one service officer was handling the job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too big a job for one person,â&#x20AC;? said Pevere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already a full-time job plus for Jim, and I help out,â&#x20AC;? he continued. Jenkins and Pevere said they

are determined to help every veteran in this town who is eligible for a claim; the hard part is identifying them all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of veterans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re eligible for a claim, or they may have put in a claim and been rejected over a technicality and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that they can appeal or that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance they could win their appeal,â&#x20AC;? said Jenkins. When the two former vets took on the service officer roles at the Legion they were told not to fill out any forms for veterans but to get them to do it themselves. See SERVICE page SF2

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Well it really is happening, and if anyone still has any doubts that the former Hershey plant is going to get a new lease on life, now is your chance to have a look. Tweed Inc. is holding an open house on Saturday, Nov. 16 between noon and 4 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re extending an invitation to the mayor, councillors and everyone in the community to drop in,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Zekulin, vice president, Tweed Inc. They will have information boards set up about medicinal marijuana and about the company, and the types of jobs theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll eventually be looking to fill. They will be offering refreshments and the entire Tweed management team will be on hand to answer questions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is just an open house, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a job fair,â&#x20AC;? clarified Zekulin. As of now, Tweed is in the process of construction at the former chocolate factory. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve staked out the area they will be using for their operations and are clearing the floors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking the entire distribution centre which is about 168,000 square feet, as well as the office space to the left of the old visitor entrance and the mezzanine which brings the total up to 180,000 square feet, or one third of the facility,â&#x20AC;? said Chuck Rifici, president and CEO, Tweed. The first order of business has been to dismantle the endless rows of steel racks that were left behind, and crews are almost through that process. Then they will re-divide the space into the required sections for the operation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be starting with the mother room, where the seeds will be planted and nurtured be-

fore being moved to the grow rooms, and there will be several grow rooms separated from one another,â&#x20AC;? explained Zekulin. Now about halfway through the Health Canada licensing process, the company has to demonstrate that the facility will meet all the Health Canada requirements from a technical and operational standpoint; that means everything from filtration, to security systems before they can be granted their licence to start operation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an unusual process, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a unique industry and I think it makes sense for this operation,â&#x20AC;? said Rifici. It is a huge investment to make prior to receiving the license. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reassurance we have is that anyone who meets the criteria will be granted a licence,â&#x20AC;? said Zekulin. Currently Health Canada is assessing 200 licence applications and has granted two. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re well positioned, given the scale of this facility and our business plan,â&#x20AC;? said Rifici. While they may not be in operation or even licensed they are committed to achieving both those milestones and going beyond. Tweed also hopes to eventually contribute to the body of knowledge about medicinal marijuana. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are hundreds of hybrids, all with different properties, and there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet any scientific research into the properties of different strains,â&#x20AC;? said Zekulin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The information available right now is anecdotal.â&#x20AC;? While research is not the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first priority, it is something they foresee happening over time, according to Rifici. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether in collaboration with a university or other research entity we see a value in the marketplace to build that in,â&#x20AC;? said Zekulin.

Glee club headlines Dickens of A Christmas concert By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

While John Jackson, president of the CUPE local 2119, was pleased with the poll results, he added the caveat that “I think people will understand that the poll was done before the cutbacks happened. Our members are loyal, hard-working, and go over and above to provide great care…It is our beds and services that are under attack,” Jackson said. Jackson admitted that “an A+ rating is a good dedication to the hospital, so why would they (workers) be under attack when they provide this type of service?” Hospital response During a telephone interview from a conference in Toronto on Nov. 5, Bisonette welcomed the hotline. “We, as an organization, are always interested in the feedback of our customers,” said Bisonette. “We will be happy to have a look at that study.” The hospital itself is seeking the stories of patients about their experiences,

“The first veteran I saw came in and took one look at the 16 forms he had to fill out, threw his hands in the air and was going to walk out, so I said sit down - we’ll do this together,” said Jenkins. The volume of forms is, without a doubt quite daunting, but Jenkins, with 30 years of service in all three of the armed forces and in supply management in particular, is not easily intimidated by reams of paperwork. “We’ve been able to help people because we explain what we can do for them - they come in with the information and we file the claim,” said Pevere. As they point out, any man or woman

who served in the Canadian armed forces at any time whether in war or peace, who suffered an injury or became ill as a result of that service is eligible to make a claim. Not all but most will be successful. Widows of veterans are also often eligible for assistance, though often don’t know it. In the meantime these two determined men are getting creative at identifying veterans in the area who may be eligible for assistance. “If I’m out and I see a car with veterans’ licence plates, I’ll walk up to the driver and introduce myself,” said Jenkins. Call Jenkins at 613-284-1805 if you would like more information.

Community - After surprising the audience and organizers with a command performance last year, the Redhawk Rhythmics, Smiths Falls and District Collegiate Institute’s glee club, is this year’s headliner at A Dickens of a Christmas Concert to be held Nov. 17 at the SFDCI cafetorium. “In the past we brought in the Capital City Chorus, an 80-man barbershop, for our annual concert, but last year the Redhawk Rhythmics were the guest performers, and they stole the show, they had so much energy and talent,” said Carol Miller, curator Heritage House Museum. The Rhythmics’ performance was so spectacular that the Capital City Chorus, the Ottawa Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society admitted the youth had outshone them and invited them to perform at their annual concert at Dominion Chalmers United Church in Ottawa the following month. “We did two shows with them last year, performing in front of 800 people each night and it was very well received. Actually, they’ve invited us again this year to perform on Dec. 14 and 15,” said Kristine McLaren, music director at SFDCI. The Redhawk Rhythmics are made up of nearly 40 Grade 9 to 12 students and even some recent graduates who wanted to come back for the music. “We’re going to be performing some

up-tempo numbers in glee style, so they’ll be dancing,” said McLaren, “and a few quieter pieces to set the mood for the holiday season.” The youth group will also be joined by the Smiths Falls Reunion Band, led by Paul Smith, former SFDCI music teacher and his group of 25 to 30 mostly former students. Originally formed to play at the 2005 SFDCI reunion prior to the move to the new school location, the band stayed together, kept the name and continues to play for fundraisers around town. “We’ll be playing mostly Christmas numbers and we’re incorporating the glee club from the high school,” said Smith. So this year the concert has been coopted by Smiths Falls talent, old and new. “Most of the reunion band is made up of former students with about four or five from outside,” said Smith. “Some of them still look the same as they did when I was teaching and they’re grandparents now.” The annual concert is a fundraiser for the Heritage House Museum and this year a portion of proceeds will go to support the music department at SFDCI. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 and can be purchased at the Heritage House Museum, 11 Old Slys Road, Smiths Falls during office hours 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily, including weekends. Tickets may also be reserved over the phone at 613-283-6311.

Giving orphanages in Kenya the tools to be sustainable in the long term By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - Some people dream about making a difference, others live that dream. Smiths Falls native, Nancy Stevens is one of those living her dream of making a positive difference in the lives of orphaned children in Kenya, Africa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started out volunteering with organizations like Habitat for Humanity around 2005, but in 2008 I decided I wanted to do something different. I decided to go to Kenya and sit down with the mamas because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the mamas who run the village, and ask them what they wanted as opposed to just going in and building something,â&#x20AC;? said Stevens, activity director and volunteer coordinator at Providence Motherhouse in Kingston and founder of Kenya Help. The outcome of that first meeting was a schoolhouse for 100 children in an impoverished neighbourhood of Ngong, a town about 50km southwest of Nairobi, Kenya. She supplied that first schoolroom with desks and a water tank. Up until then the children sat on the ground with no school supplies, learning their alphabet. Since then Kenya Help has spread and grown, providing food, water and electricity to schools that had none and now supports 3,000 children most of them AIDS orphans, but there is still so much more to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first impression I had when we arrived was: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of work to be done.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Wherever you turned there was a project that could be done,â&#x20AC;? said Celine Pepin, a Kingston physician, who volunteered with Kenya Help this year. Most of the projects involve basic needs that we, in Canada take completely for granted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids would come to school with a zip lock bag full of water, that was their lunch, so we helped build a cook house to feed the kids during the long school day,â&#x20AC;? said Alison Raymond, sales rep for a wine company out of Kingston who volunteered with Kenya Help last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we paid for a

yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of food by saving some of the money we had raised for the builds by recycling and reusing materials so we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to buy materials and could put that money to other uses.â&#x20AC;? The school day for these children starts at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. and thanks to that cookhouse, which is attached to the school, the children now get one solid meal during their school day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can feed 1,100 children for $100,â&#x20AC;? said Stevens, who in addition to the cook house has had an acre and a half of staple crops planted to feed the children, in addition to building a chicken coop for egg laying hens. While the poverty is mind boggling to most North Americans itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also amazing how resilient and accepting both the adults and children are of what little they have. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I noticed that everyone was living their life like it was completely normal, like it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hard to go without food or money,â&#x20AC;? said 17-year-old Genevieve Becker-Pepin, who travelled to Kenya with her mother earlier this year. But the need is both huge and impossible to ignore as Stevens discovers each time she returns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we visited a school in a nearby community that held about 85 children, but there were about 400 kids crowded around the windows because they wanted to learn so badly,â&#x20AC;? said Stevens. So a new school is being built right now with funds Kenya Help has been raising since March. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The foundation is poured, the walls are up, we have the water tank, and the desks are being built we just need to find the funds to raise the roof,â&#x20AC;? said Stevens. Stevens and her team of volunteers alike canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t express the satisfaction and reward they get from the projects they accomplish and fund throughout the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It blew me away how kind the people there are. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve travelled a lot in the third world, but in Kenya

people and children come up to you not to beg, but to touch your hand and say thank you, because they know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there to help,â&#x20AC;? said Raymond. In the meantime, Stevens feels the responsibility of the supports she has started deeply. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kenya Help definitely isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just one person, it is all of the people who have contributed, donated, or even supported our cause, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stressful running a charity, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very rewarding but I think about it 24/7,â&#x20AC;? said Stevens. She credits her many donors in Smiths Falls, Perth and Kingston for making Kenya Help possible, and she has people in Kenya that she can trust, who continue the projects while sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here working and gathering funds. According to Pepin, Stevens has built a strong network of resources in the areas Kenya Help operates and has garnered the respect of the people there, ensuring that projects are nurtured and sustained in her absence.

Back in Canada, Stevens works all year and with the help of family and friends, fundraises in her spare time so she can make the trip to Kenya at least once a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One hundred per cent of the money raised goes to Kenya Help, not one penny goes to administration,â&#x20AC;? said Stevens, who also waitresses, so she can cover administrative expenses including her own travel. In 2010 a documentary called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Kenya Help Projectâ&#x20AC;? was premiered at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University and the Kingston YMCA awarded Stevens the Peace Medal Award, recognizing her for her work in Kenya. The former Queens graduate was also granted an Honorary Diploma from St Lawrence College in 2012.

OPINION

Connected to your community

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - November 11, 1913 The Balmy spring-like weather of the first week of November gave place on Saturday night to a heavy downpour of rain which continued intermittently all night and all day Sunday. Yesterday it turned colder and a regular snow storm set in during the afternoon. Today the ground is covered with its winter mantel but an hour or two of sunshine will wear it away. The storm was very general and was very mild in this part of the country as compared with other places. Here is one report: Toronto Monday Nov. 10 - Few Toronto citizens realized as they sat comfortably at home on Sunday and watched the steady downpour of rain that by eight o’clock more than 3,960,000 tones of water had fallen over the city. Yet such was the case. At the Observatory it was stated that about two inches of rain fell. It was one of the worst storms in the records of the city, and the records extend back to 1840.

50 YEARS AGO - November 21, 1963 “A squeaking wheel gets the grease,” Councilor James Grey laughingly remarked during Monday night’s Town Council meeting. He was reporting on the successful operations of his Social Welfare committee and the cooperation he has been receiving from local organizations. Recently Councilor Gray stirred up some controversy in town when he said that churches should try to take a more important role in helping care for families requiring welfare. He said on Monday night that two church groups as well as the Home and School called him asking in what way they could help. “As a result of this fine cooperation,” he said, “we have been able to outfit families and provide other needed assistance in a most practical way.” Mayor Arnold Gough remarked that in his opinion, Social Welfare has been handled this year in a better and more efficient manner than ever before.

Dealing with technology is sometimes a big issue Opinion - Does dealing with a phone/Internet/ satellite company always have to be so difficult? I have a cell phone and a turbo stick – both with Bell. I wanted to hook up high speed Internet, so I called last week to have a discussion about costs. I didn’t want to use a different company for high speed, because I thought that having all my services from one company would be less complicated – maybe even cheaper. Sounds easy enough, right? I didn’t count on the runaround. “Yes, you will qualify for home phone and satellite, as well as high speed,” the Bell rep tells me during our phone conversation. “But I only want high speed Internet. I don’t watch TV, nor do I use a home phone. Just another added expense I don’t need.” “Oh, but it’s just $95/month for the first six months, then $125/month thereafter for the two years of your contract,” she tells me. But that’s not including the exorbitant price I pay for my turbo stick and cell phone service. She got me at a weak moment. I ordered the three services. The satellite installer came last Saturday – he’s a sub-contractor, and a local guy. Very nice, super friendly, and quickly had it up and running. He went over the contract with me, answered any questions I had. (I had a million… nature of the beast, I guess.) Wednesday morning, I stayed home to greet the second tech who finally called after three hours of waiting. He said high speed was not available in

25 YEARS AGO - November 9, 1988 Last Grade 13 class graduated from SFDCI Commencement exercises at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute Friday night sparked both the beginning and end of an era. The nearly 200 graduating students including the last group of “Grade 13s” to graduate from the school as well as the first class to earn the new Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Principal Jack Johnson, joking, remarked that the group of students who are the last to receive a Secondary School Honours Graduation Grade 13 Diploma could perhaps be called ‘dinosaurs.’ “I’m kind of proud to be a dinosaur,” said valedictorian Vance Brown, drawing enthusiastic applause.

10 YEARS AGO - November 12, 2003 Final approval to the construction of a new SFDCI is anticipated “in the very near future.” Upper Canada District School Board spokesperson Terry Simzer made that claim following a meeting Nov. 7 involving the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) and project manager William Burger. “We did meet with the RVCA last Friday and essentially we identified the outstanding issues. We are developing a plan to address those issues and we are anticipating approval in the very near future. We are close and everyone seems to be on the same page,” Simzer said.

LAURIE WEIR Weir View my area. “Don’t know why they would even sell it to you,” he says. Now, I’m mad. Not only have I wasted some valuable work time that I had to make up at the end of the day, but I still had no high speed Internet. I called again with my order confirmation number and spoke with no less than six people to cancel it. If I couldn’t get high speed, I didn’t want home phone or satellite. Yes, I was pouting… I wanted what I wanted, didn’t get it, so I now wanted none of it. The second tech made notes on the order that high speed was not available and that the client should not have to pay for cancelling as it was not as requested. He said he’d do that for me – at least he was looking out for me. The client representative in retention (that’s where they send clients who are upset and want to cancel services) wouldn’t let me break the contract. “You signed a two-year agreement,” he said. “Yes, and I also read the contract and I can cancel it within 10 days… it’s been five.” He stammered.

“OK, we will cancel your order and send you a postage-paid box to send us back the PVR receiver,” he said. “What about the dish? I don’t want that either.” “But that’s yours to keep. Your gift.” “What? I don’t want the thing. Come get it off the roof, fix the holes and be on your way.” “That will be $75 to have a technician come out to remove it. You might as well just keep it.” OMG. “Is there anything else we can help you with today?” he asks me. You’re kidding me. But it doesn’t stop here. The end of the month rolled around last week, and I had to have a copy of my bill – which I can access online and print – to submit with my work expenses. I clicked on their website and what do you know… my online account has been deleted. I can’t access my old account, because it was going to be rolled into a new account, bundling all five services (three of which were cancelled before the ink was dry on the contract). That new bill will not be populating online until Nov. 15, which was also going to be my new billing cycle. Yes, it just keeps getting more complicated. So I called 611 (no, not 911, but that would have been the next plan of attack). “Can you email me a copy of my October bill, please?” I asked client care rep number 274 this week. See COLUMN pg SF9

Hospital gets top marks for care DEAR EDITOR: While visiting in your area with my sister recently, she was admitted to your hospital. Following surgery for a fractured hip, she spent two weeks in your care. I write to thank everyone who made her stay so comfortable. All members of the staff â&#x20AC;&#x201C; doctors, nurses, physiotherapy and all other staff were so kind and professional. She now continues her recovery in the N.O.T.L. (Niagara-on-the-Lake) hospital which is near her home in St. Catharines. She was airlifted to be near her family. Everyone is so fortunate to have a hospital such as yours. It certainly deserves a very high rating. Sincerely, Joan Sandford Barrie, Ont.

Sharing ideas on growth at heritage symposium By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

unappreciated. Meanwhile restorations as Brathwaite points out improve the values of properties and that in turn comes back to benefit both the municipality and the community. “The Victoria Woolen Mill in Almonte used to pay $5,000 in taxes, since the renovations it now pays $50,000 in taxes, so when buildings are restored they pay the municipality back,” Brathwaite told the audience, adding that the spinoff is economic growth. “It brought people into town that were going to protect their property value and spend money in town.” Partnering him on the presentation was Al Lunney, former mayor of Almonte, who also spoke to the importance of incentives like property tax breaks for heritage restoration projects. “Almonte has been a success because of all the partnerships, including the CAO sniffing out grants - it’s been a buy-in by everyone,” Lunney told the audience. The presentation was followed by a numerous questions from the audience before a break for lunch catered by Good Life Bistro. Following lunch, participants were treated to a presentation by author, journalist and editor Shawn Micallef, exploring ways to sneak heritage appreciation into everyday lives. “I’ve come away with a better appreciation for the heritage we have in Westport and some good ideas on how to share it,” said Brady. She was not the only one to appreciate the day’s talks and presenters. “Today reinforced things that have been at the back of my mind for some time, we too have a heritage committee and we’re doing a lot of work on rejuvenating our downtown, and we can all learn from each other,” said Sandra Lawn, chair of the Prescott BIA. “What I came away with is the importance for us to build on our strengths and not be embarrassed by our rich heritage.”

Community - The second annual Heritage Symposium was held at the Station Theatre on Nov. 4 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and was well attended by a good cross section of residents and nonresidents. “I learned so much, heard great stories and good connections were made,” said Jackalyn Brady, Westport councillor. There were more than 45 attendees at this year’s symposium and the buzz as they left seemed very upbeat. “We were very pleased with the positive reaction from people,” said Coun. Lorraine Allen, council representative on the Smiths Falls Municipal Heritage Committee. This year’s symposium included a presentation by Pauline Aunger and Paul Howard on the adaptive re-use of the host venue - the Station Theatre which, according to Allen, was very well received. “I also heard a lot of real buzz about Algonquin College’s presentation, because they outlined the programs they have that support heritage and announced a public workshop they’ll be holding on re-outfitting heritage windows,” said Allen. One of the highlights of the symposium was a presentation on privatepublic partnerships in heritage conservation. “The enormous cost of original materials is the ugly reality of maintaining old buildings,” Stephen Brathwaite, Almonte entrepreneur, artist and heritage property developer, told the audience. “The old post office (in Almonte) needed a steel roof, and the building pays $10,000 in taxes, but through a tax incentive they get $2,500 back from the municipality.” It might not seem like a lot but it’s something towards maintaining the building while letting the owners know that the effort is not going unnoticed or

OPP bridge dedication honours former Smiths Falls resident rcoyne@perfprint.ca

News – Even 41 years later, their loss strikes deep. Family members and friends of the late Clare Lloyd Lackey, a Constable with the Ontario Provincial Police, gathered in a small community on Manitoulin Island in late August. They were there to remember and honour a cherished husband, father and respected officer who passed away far too young. It was on July 16, 1972 that the then 41-year-old Const. Lackey, a member of the Little Current detachment on the island, was killed while on duty. He was struck head-on by a drunk driver as he returned from a call at M’Chigeeng First Nation. His death was felt deeply by many – both in the community as well as his hometown of Smiths Falls – but no more than by his wife Jean and four daughters – Cathy, Kim, Robin and Mary-Jayne. On Friday, Aug. 23, 2013, they returned to Manitoulin Island to attend the dedication of the Graham Creek Bridge in his name, now known as the C. Lloyd Lackey Memorial Bridge. This was a ceremony almost two years in the making, Jean explained, but one that was well worth the wait.

The Graham Creek Bridge is officially dedicated in memory of the late OPP Const. C. Lloyd Lackey Aug. 23 of this year. Shown here at the dedication (left to right) OPP Deputy Commissioner Scott Tod; MPP Michael Mantha; Const. Lackey’s wife Jean Mulville; Manitoulin OPP Staff Sgt. Kevin Webb; Const. Lackey’s daughter Mary-Jayne Kerfoot, sister Ruth Shrout; daughter Cathy Rivoire; sister Jean Levatte; daughters Robin Gillespie and Kim Gauthier. Lackey’s eldest daughter Cathy Rivoire said the day featured a reception and luncheon attended by close to 300 people at the Manitoulin Hotel and Conference Centre in Little Current, Ont. The dignitaries, including OPP Deputy Commissioner Scott Tod, Manitoulin OPP Staff Sergeant Kevin Webb, local MP Carol Hughes and MPP

Michael Mantha among others, were piped into the reception by Sgt. Geoffrey Johnson. According to a story in the Manitoulin Expositor, the event was emceed by Superintendent Fern Labelle, director of operations for the OPP North East Region, who also offered the first of several speeches.

“Constable Lackey unselfishly dedicated his life in the care of others and paid the ultimate price, laying down his life for others,” he said. Hughes noted that in addition to paying tribute to Const. Lackey, a loss still being felt 41 years later “by his family, colleagues, friends, and community,” the dedication will also serve as a reminder to motorists of the devastating effects of drinking and driving. “This gesture posthumously recognizes Constable Lackey for courageously and selflessly giving his life in the line of duty to preserve a safe society,” Hughes is quoted in the Expositor. Each of Const. Lackey’s daughters shared with those in attendance what the bridge dedication means to them. A most touching moment came as Jean Mulville spoke, supported at the lectern by her daughters – Cathy Rivoire, Kim Gauthier, Robin Gillespie and MaryJayne Kerfoot – as well as her brother Brent Saunders. She says she took the opportunity to thank people for attending and especially those who worked to make the bridge dedication a reality – retired OPP officer Robert South and retired Manitoulin Staff Sgt. Ron Roy. “It is wonderful for us to know that his memory will live on here with this bridge dedication,” she told the audience. Family members received a framed

memorial of Const. Lackey including his OPP crest, photo and uniform decorations from Staff Sgt. Webb. They were also presented with a bridge replica sign. Before heading out with police escort to the bridge dedication under a near cloudless late summer sky, the group stopped briefly at the site of the crash that claimed Const. Lackey’s life. There, Cathy’s husband Gord Rivoire laid flowers on behalf of the family. At each stop, OPP chaplain, auxiliary inspector Gerald McMillan, offered a prayer, words of comfort much appreciated by the family, Jean says. “They were wonderful,” Cathy said of the officers and the way they handled each ceremony throughout the day. “They made you feel really important, it was so nice.” The fact the ceremony attracted so many people from such a wide area shows the high regard with which Const. Lackey was held. “He was just a great person, so kind to everyone,” Jean recalled. “And so well respected.” Cathy says the family truly appreciates what has been done in honour of her father. “It was probably more than we expected,” she said of the ceremony. “It was just a wonderful day, sad but happy too.” With files from Stacey Roy.

Smiths Falls woman shares father’s account of World War II incident Dear Sir, I am writing with respect to a WWII incident regarding a Focke-Wulfe my father (Robert Andrew Whalen) shot down with a Lewis gun in Eindhoven while stationed there with the RCAF. He worked processing aerial reconnaissance photos. Dad had spotted the plane while his squadron slept off their New Year’s Eve celebrations. Everyone was sleeping but him and another fellow photo technician. It was only in the last year of Dad’s life that he met men from his regiment who had apparently been looking for him because they wanted the exploit acknowledged. Below is my father’s account of shooting down the Focke-Wulfe. I thought it would make interesting reading during the Smiths Falls Remembrance week paper. Mary Porter By ROBERT ANDREW WHALEN

The Focke-Wulfe January 1, 1945 “Damn,” he said out loud and winced. He’d cut his finger trimming the film with the razor-knife and he could feel his blood slippery on its smooth surface. If the splice didn’t hold there’d be hell to pay. It was the thunder of the backfire that had jarred him. A burst from the exhaust of the Norton. That was Dougan’s signal; he was the dispatch rider and he’d be outside now on his motorcycle with magazines of exposed film from the airfield where a Spitfire had just landed with a line overlap, a fresh series of photos of what lay ahead of Montgomery’s army a mile or two away. In the dim red light he relaxed a bit; by squinting he could see the film was safely moving into the washing tanks. He moved to where he knew the safety door was, stepped into the little space outside and carefully closed the lightproof door behind him before throwing open the main door to a blast of light and air so cold it seemed to freeze the sweat on his back. He’d worked all night alone in that fetid place, but he was wideawake now. Where was Dougan? Surely he hasn’t gone back to the airfield. And then he understood. It was a plane that had backfired because it was doing it now as it came out of a long wheeling glide and smoothly passed overhead. He was a little high with cold air and fatigue and felt that if he wanted to he could just reach up and touch it. A Spitfire. But what’s it doing here? And that funny maroon colour, ours are blue. He laughed. What’s this? Who’s the joker who’d put a Maltese Cross on a Spitfire? Don’t they know it should be a Swastika. He felt the plane up there was just one of the models of the planes in von Richtoffen’s Flying Circus of the First War he’d lovingly painted with Maltese Crosses when he was a kid. My God that’s a German plane. He was surprised how calmly he took this realization. After all, this is a war and we are right in a war zone here in Eindhoven, even though the fighting is being done by the army some distance away. This was a thought he often had, and it bothered him. He was bloody glad he wasn’t in the infantry. The thought of getting a bayonet in his guts gave him nightmares. His father had been a machine gunner in the Fifth Battalion in the First War. The last machine gunner to be silenced in the Second Battle of Ypres. And five years in hospitals for his pains and a leg with an iron brace that clanked

But he’d been classed as “E”, physically unfit for active service, and only got in the air force because his M.P. pulled the right strings. These thoughts occupied him as the Focke-Wulfe sped away toward the airfield giving bursts of machine-gun fire that sounded just like the little strings of firecrackers that, as kids, they’d tossed about on Victoria Day. But now it was quiet again outside there in the cobblestoned courtyard behind their barracks. It had been a school in peacetime, and now it still had over the entrance the “Flieger Caserne” of the German flyers who had been there until the army liberated Eindhoven in September. He allowed himself the luxury of a stretchy yawn, and enjoyed the fresh cold air. Might as well. The last of the film would run itself through the tanks of developer, fixer and washwater in the trailer. “Continuous Processing Machine” they called it. And we’re continuous too, he thought; once they had worked 39 hours without a break, food and drink being handed in to them in the dark. They were light-hearted about it; Intelligence used their photos to make it easier for the Infantry; the captains could see “what lay on the other side of the hill” as Wellington was supposed to have said. The “photo bashers”, as they were called, paid a price: they slept in fits and starts and went around drunk with fatigue. A few had been taken away “for a ‘rest’”. Now no Dougan, no work. So for once, he told himself, take it easy. It was only fair. Last night they were celebrating New Year’s and he’d drawn the short straw to run the machine singlehanded. It would have been fun to have stayed up with the other guys, drinking the watered “Tennant’s” beer issue they’d saved and joking with all of them – the other L.A.C.’s, the four corporals, the two sergeants, Flight -Sergeant Scott, and maybe even that miserable specimen, their so-called commanding officer, Flight-Lieutenant William Moodie – all together around the twangy piano in the attic of their barracks singing, “Roll me over in the Clover”. But what difference did it make anyway? Today was New Year’s Day for everyone. Except that they’d have a hangover and he was cold, tired and hungry and almost in a drunken ecstasy from the quiet and the vastness of the gleaming morning sky. All that vanished in a blast of sound. “Everyone down into the cellar!” It was Flt. Sgt. Scott in his blues, but

hatless, beltless, waving his arms as he stood there alone on the cobblestone courtyard, but he was yelling and there was fear in his voice now. He was a good fellow, always tried to make things run right and easy, but there was fear in his voice now. “Everybody out, get up you lazy good-for-nothings, grab your socks or I’ll put you on charge . . . come on, get a move on; Jerry’s bombing everything; they’ve hit every plane on the airfield, now it’s our turn.” It was comic. An actor without an audience except for one he couldn’t see. The men were “sleeping it off” now and he had no intention of joining in and witnessed this from the long crack of the almost-closed door of the trailer. He was still the boy who wasn’t invited to the party but that, he knew, was nothing new. Scott disappeared somewhere inside the back entrance which led into the mess and upstairs to the sleeping quarters. The courtyard was deserted but he sensed there was someone else there. He looked up. The Focke-Wulfe. Gliding by, its motor seemed to be barely ticking over but he couldn’t be sure. A moment ago a change had come over him. He always knew that he was a coward, that he was almost always in a state somewhere between fear and hoping that whatever he did would not make it worse and yet things always seemed to be happening fast, faster than they really were, and he had to keep running just to keep up. Sometimes his own shadow startled him. He was not the stuff of which heroes are made. Of that, he was quite sure, although naturally he never spoke of it. Like most of the other boys in the little pioneer town on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, he had been raised on the admonitions of work hard, waste not and be prepared to die happily for the British Empire. When he joined up, he was training to be an opera singer and had already sung the Toreador in a full production of “Carmen,” sponsored by the internationally famous Australian composer and pianist Percy Grainger. His kind of fear was endemic among musicians; it forced you to “be in on the beat.” But it was hell in the army, or the Royal Canadian Air Force version of it, which by circumstance was forced to bend a little to accommodate people with whom the war made necessary. But the change that had come over him in the last few minutes put everything in slow motion. Even sounds seemed stretched out and lower in volume. He was in a different world. All alone. And surprisingly sure of himself.

The German plane glided by again, this time toward Eindhoven and away from the airfield. It was so low, he could see the pilot inside his glass enclosure. In his goggles and helmet he looked like some kind of bug. He was wheeling around and looking down, his head turned toward him. Their eyes met for an instant, and the motor quickened. He knows. He’s just waiting for the guys to assemble in the courtyard. And he’ll mow ‘em down. The next thing he was aware of was that he was running into the courtyard with the Lewis Gun held in front of him with both arms as though it was a very heavy log. He knew how to use it. A gun like this one was what his father had used at the bloody Second Battle of Ypres in 1915. His was the last machine gun to be silenced. Once in a while the photo-bashers were given firing practice with their issue Lee-Enfields or the suicidal little Sten automatics and he’d managed to fire the Lewis several times. Bill Wemp, the Electrician, was also down as Artificer and the two of them got it out from the pantry beside the kitchen which served as their “armory” and figured out how to use it. To him, that gun became almost, but not quite, a person. A PERSON TO WHOM HE OWED HIS VERY OWN LIFE. His own father’s story was wellknown, his Legion friends spoke of it; it was a legend. And true. Too many agreed on it for it not to be. He himself only said, “some poor devil heard me screaming I took a lot of shrapnel – and crawled out to bring me in and got killed for his pains; it made me wonder.” His Dad had worked as a homestead inspector but all his spare time was spent with “old crocks,” wounded veterans of the First War who had slipped through the administrative cracks. They had no pensions and were ill-clothed, hungry and smelly and once or twice a month one would share in his father’s table. Twice, the elder man had taken time off from work, paid his own train fare to Ottawa and sat outside the office of Mackenzie King, Prime Minister of Canada and member of Parliament for Prince Albert. Justice was done. When John Buchan, author of “The Path of the King,” a story of the ordinary ancestors, over many centuries, of Abraham Lincoln, came to Prince Albert as Governor-General, his first request was: “Introduce me to Walter William Whelan; I would not like to get on the wrong side of him.” But now, as the photo-bashers, halfdressed and sprawly, assembled in the courtyard, he knew that the moment he had been born for was here. The gun was too heavy to hold, and lying prone was no use for a plane in the sky. He saw his friend Dolman. They’d already got in trouble when headquarters sent around a guy with a panoramic camera to record the “men and officers of Number Six Mobile Field Photographic Service. One bright Saturday afternoon here in October. On a signal from him, Dolman had stood beside him at the end the camera was pointed to; they ran like rabbits as soon as they’d been immortalized on film to get another permanence at the other end. “They” were not amused; judgment was pending. “You heard me, Whelan, get in the cellar.” Scott was doing his best, but really he was still an executive of Kodak, as were a number of noncommissioned officers in the photo unit. Most of the men were now under the eaves, and others may have been in the cellar. He only wanted to get that Focke-Wulfe in his sights. He’s ready to pick us off like

THE EMC - SF14 - Thursday, November 7, 2013

geese stuck in the mud. His eyes met Dolman’s and he knew right away. “Get down in the cellar, Whelan.” Scott screamed it this time, “or you’ll be on charge for insubordination.” The sound from the Focke-Wulfe was now a steady but slowly falling blare, rather like a long note on a baritone clarinet. It was heading toward the airfield. Dolman ran out, crouching, from the few stragglers underneath the eaves. He hunched over and in a moment they had the Lewis sitting on Dolman’s back. The Focke-Wulfe was now heading back, a pencil with two wings heading straight for them. He aimed and fired. The plane just came on and its machine gun was firing, hardly louder, it seemed, than the strings of little firecrackers they used to toss, lighted, in the air on Firecracker Day, May the twenty-fourth. But someone was tossing stones on the cobblestones a few feet away. “Ta-ta-tatah-taat, ta-ta-tah-tat.” He realized they were bullets from the German plane but for some reason it didn’t bother him. The plane was wheeling around now and all that mattered was getting another shot at it. With all his strength, he lifted the Lewis and took the weight on the heavy “Got Mit Uns” belt buckle he’d got for a pack of Players 10 cigarettes. It was too awkward and painful to use the sights of the gun and he, who had been taught to “shoot by throw” when he was a boy by Daniel Meracity, an old Cree who had befriended him, let the gun “follow his eyes” and fired the rest of the magazine as the plane moved past. Its engine coughed and, stuttering, the plane climbed slowly and then suddenly leveled and fell nose first into the trees around the next block of houses. There was now some gunfire but it was from some distance away near the airfield. He only wanted to sleep. He had been on duty since supper-time the night before. But he was ravenously hungry now and went into the Mess where Smitty had come up with a stew from several tins of “M. And V.,” the tinned issue of stew which, unpalatable to begin with, had become a not too happy joke after cats’ paws had been found in several tins. He ate alone, but Corporal Mainville, a good-humoured French-Canadian who had been a Champagne salesman in civilian life, came up and sat sideways beside him on the bench. He placed a German P38 pistol on the table. “I guess I got you to thank for ‘dis baby,” he said. “You’re welcome to it,” someone snarled from a group at the far end of the Mess table. Several men had run out to the wrecked plane. Leica cameras and P 38s were loot they all craved. But Mainville was the only one willing to loot this one. The impact of the plane against the earth had severed the pilot’s head from his body. That “buggy” head was still in the plane. For his failure to obey the command of a superior officer to go to the cellar, he was informed the next day that, in due course, he would be informed of the necessary details of the court-martial proceedings that were proceeding against him. Conversations with the Padre Flt. Lieut. Dunn and the Unit Orderly of the unit quite befuddled him. “Why did you do such a thing?” was the burden of their complaint. He could not appreciate the seriousness of his offence. He thought the whole idea was to inflict damage on the enemy, the more the better. In the dreadful ordeal that lay ahead of him he never once changed his opinion or wavered in his story, to his great cost.

Smiths Falls Bears Karson McCartney (22) rushes the net against Cornwall Friday night, smoking a Colts player into the crease, while linemate Alex Deblois tries to score in the first period. The Colts earned a 4-2 win in the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; only game of the week.

Colts hand Bears disappointing loss at home Sports - The Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears had a one-game week in CCHL action, dropping a 4-2 decision to the Cornwall Colts at home Friday night in front of 628 fans. It was a no-score deadlock after a dead-even opening period with equal shots on goal. Cornwall turned it up a notch in the second with two quick markers from Kevin Hope and Antonios Roumeliotis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both scoring on Michael Pinios low stick side, tucking it inside the corner pocket. Smiths Falls retaliated on the power play when Victor Beaulac scored at the half-way point of the second, assisted by Stefano Momesso and Alek Deblois. With less than four minutes remaining in the period, Cornwall made it 3-1 before the whistle with Lawson MacDougallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal. Heading into the third period, Smiths Falls Daniele Disipio scored to close the gap which held up until the 11:26 mark when Sean King scored on the power play

giving Cornwall the 4-2 win with James Edwardson taking the credit in the crease. Game stars were Edwardson and Hope for Cornwall, and Beaulac for Smiths Falls. Smiths Falls was in Kanata on Tuesday, but results were not available at press time. Friday, the team hosts Kemptville at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, they travel to Cumberland to take on the Grads in a 3 p.m. tilt. CCHL PLAYER HYPE The Central Canada Junior A Hockey League (CCHL) announced the Corporate Hype Player/Goalie/Rookie of the Month awards for October. The Player of the Month is Evan Peterson of the Carleton Place Canadians. Peterson led the Canadians to a 9-2-0-1 record in October. The Winnipeg, MB native is a threat every time he touches the puck and should help keep Carleton Place near the top of the

league standings. The Canadians forward collected an impressive 21 (9G, 12A) points in 12 games while earning six game stars for his efforts. He has only been held scoreless in one game this season and currently sits second overall in league scoring with 42 (15G, 27A) points in 25 games. Once again this month, the same team boasts the other two winners. The Goalie of the Month honour goes to Smiths Falls Bears netminder Michael Pinios. Pinios went a league leading 8-2-1-0 for the month and was a major reason for the rise of the Smiths Falls Bears who sit tied for second in the Robinson division. The Montreal, Que., native boasted a stellar 2.36 Goals Against and .926 Save Percentage as well as earning four game stars. The Bears goalie is currently tied for first in league wins with 12, fourth in Goals Against (2.78) and fifth in Save Percentage (.912). Joining him is teammate Neil

Doef who earns Rookie of the Month honours. Doef enjoyed a great October picking up 10 points (5G, 5A). The first year forward has 15 (7G, 8A) and is in the top five in overall scoring for rookies this season. Bears defenceman Victor Beaulac, received an honourable mention as Player of the Month. CCHL also announced that eight players have been selected to the Canada East team which will participate in the annual World Junior A Challenge, which will finish Sunday in Yarmouth. N.S. Players from the CCHL include: goalie Jordan Piccolino (Cornwall Colts); defencemen, Matthew Cruickshank (Cornwall Colts) Kelly Summers (Carleton Place Canadians); forwards Felix Chamberland (Pembroke Lumber Kings), Marly Quince (Cornwall Colts), Derian Plouffe (Kanata Stallions), Hunter Racine (Ottawa Jr. Senators) and Chase Pearson (Cornwall Colts).
