News- Anyone wishing to take part in a program at the Smiths Falls arenas who doesn’t live in Smiths Falls or a contributing municipality, will have to pay a surcharge of $378.29. “What are the alternatives? We either ask the people of Smiths Falls to subsidize nonresidents or we ask non-residents to pay their fair share,” said Coun. Chris Cummings. The purpose of the surcharge is to recover the operating costs of the two arenas, not to service the debt on them, according to CAO Stephen Fournier. While cost-sharing agreements with surrounding townships will go most of the way to recovering arena costs, a report prepared by Fournier in August of this year showed that the third larg-

est group of users did not reside in any of those townships. “The purpose of the surcharge is to recover the operating costs from that 14 per cent of program registrants who live in municipalities that are not covered by arena cost-sharing agreement with the town… the ‘other’ category,” said Fournier, in his presentation to council on Tuesday, Nov. 12. Even though the decision to apply the surcharge was unanimous, it was clear that all the councillors and mayor had concerns about its impact on users. “I’m concerned we end up losing the better part of that 14 per cent enrollment which means that our costs will go up proportionately,” said Coun. Shawn Pankow. Particularly as Fournier’s report, included a snapshot of

user fees charged by other surrounding municipalities. For example, the Perth arena fee or surcharge for out-of-town users is $140.22; Brockville is at $143.50 while Renfrew is at $140 for children and $158.20 for adults. “I’m a bit mystified at the user fees in terms of the operating costs,” said Fournier. “I’m beginning to think there’s some discounting here, but I’m not certain.” Although council members expressed concern over the steep difference in the user fees charged by other arenas they still gave their approval for the proposal. “I too support it,” said Coun. Lorraine Allen, “but I have the same concerns as Coun. Pankow. I just don’t see any other way to get a handle on our arena costs – but it gives

me some angst and I wish there was some other way we could do it.” The decision to look into and find a way to cover the remaining costs not covered by costsharing agreements came out of a report tabled in August of this year. “My report in August was to create an audit trail for the agreement with Rideau Lakes as per the principles of that agreement,” explained Fournier. That report detailed the arena operating expenses and gave a clear break-down of registered arena users by numbers, percentage and point of origin (residence). “In doing so, it allowed council to follow the guiding principle to conduct negotiations with the other four townships,” said Fournier.

It also identified the number of users who would not be captured by cost sharing agreements, at which point council directed staff to look into the possibility of a surcharge to even the playing field. “It’s unfortunate that we had to come to this,” said Coun. Ken Graham. “My concern is that it will have an effect on enrollment but I hope that people will go to their municipalities and voice their concerns there.” As of now the surcharge has been calculated on the basis of 187 out-of-town users. If that number changes the surcharge will have to be revisited. “I would think to be fair to all the partners and ourselves, we’ll have to re-evaluate the user fees every year,” concluded Pankow.

EQAO literacy scores show long-term upward trend: UCDSB News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A review of provincial testing results within the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) shows our students are progressing well in the areas of elementary reading and writing. More work must still be done in mathematics and the board has launched an initiative to help elementary teachers improve instructional practices and our students improve results, Director David K. Thomas told trustees Nov. 13. An interim report by Thomas on Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) standardized testing results shows a ten-year upward trend in elementary scores in literacy, the director said in a report to trustees. The report was requested by the board as part of its update of the accountability framework. In primary writing over the past ten years, our scores have risen from 52 per cent of students attaining levels 3 and 4 to 76 per cent. Junior reading scores have jumped from 52 per cent to 74 per cent, and junior writing scores have increased from 45 per cent to 71 per cent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have clearly delineated our work in numeracy and literacy by moving the culture of our classrooms so that our students are involved in genuine learning that is rooted in the Ontario curriculum,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;... Responsive teachers are embracing this new pedagogy and our classrooms

are becoming places of learning as opposed to places of schooling.â&#x20AC;? Board staff members are working hard to improve studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mathematics scores, he added. While Grade 9 academic math scores are historically higher than ten years ago, with an improvement from 67 per cent to 77 per cent, more work overall in both applied and academic math instruction must be done. Thomas described mathematics as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant issue.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to look at preparing our teachers, particularly at the primary and junior level, and give math more attention,â&#x20AC;? he said. Thomas reminded trustees the board has implemented a new charter under its CREW Strategic Plan simply called Math. Through this charter, elementary teachers will gain the confidence to enable their students to acquire the Ontario Mathematics Curriculum and to better challenge, respond and extend student thinking in mathematics. The charter is addressing junior math initially with a focus on algebra and basic numeracy to provide a solid foundation for success in mathematics in high school.

according to Ministry of Education requirements. The board had, for provincial compliance purposes, in-year revenue of $348,802,048 and expenses of $348,205,830 with an in-year surplus of $596,218 for the year 2012-2013. Additionally, the external auditors have provided an unqualified opinion as assurance to the board that the statements were prepared in accordance with the required basis of accounting and are free from misstatements. â&#x20AC;˘ Trustees re-examined a board facilities report from 2008 that states that over the subsequent 25 years the province will save more than $52 million from the changes implemented by the board through the Boundary 2020 process. The board again called for the province to allow it to use the savings generated by these local courageous decisions to modernize the UCDSB school system. The board wants the province to take the report into consideration during the Ministry of Educationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School Board Efficiencies and Modernization Consultations. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

Gord Brown announces public meeting on Rideau Canal set for Dec. 5 in Lombardy News – On Nov. 18, Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for LeedsGrenville announced the date of his public meeting on the Rideau Canal. “There has been a lot of work taking place this fall by our member partners in the Living and Visiting the Rideau project and I am pleased at the progress that has been made and excited to see the final report,” explains Brown. “I will be holding a public meeting on at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5 at the Lombardy Agricultural Hall to add to this process,” he adds. Since the beginning of October, the Rideau Roundtable has held a series of meetings and brought together a number of interested stakeholders to come up with an effective strategy to create a collective re-visioning of the canal to ensure that it would live up to its potential as a UNESCO World Heritage Site now, and into the future. With the support of Brown, the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville, Parks Canada, Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation (with Frontenac and 1000 Islands CDFC), the Rideau Heritage Route Tourism Association, Lanark County, the Town of Smiths Falls, and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture for the Province of Ontario, this project evolved into the Rideau Canal Visitor Experience Opportunities Concept (VEOC). The VEOC encourages stake-

holders to take an active, coordinated and collaborative role in the visioning of programs, services, and activities that will facilitate meaningful experiences and opportunities for guests to the region to connect with the essence of the region’s natural and cultural character, and the heritage of its people. This approach builds upon experience gained in similar successful VEOCs conducted for the Historic Fortifications of Quebec City, Grosse Ile National Historic Site, Gros Morne National Park and the Terra Novas, in Newfoundland and the Four Windows on the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick. In Fundy, this stakeholder engagement process received a tourism award. The Rideau Canal VEOC process occurred during October and November with a series of six, twoday, facilitated discussions with small stakeholders groups, made of people from and wide array of interests and backgrounds from specific geographical regions of the Rideau Corridor. These groups were tasked with brainstorming new experience concepts that would create a base for collaboration and action aimed at enhancing the financial sustainability of the canal and adjacent communities, and ensuring the canal meets its potential as a world class site, vibrant and animated. Throughout the VEOC sessions, a number of inter-linked challenges were addressed, such as: 1) Responding to the values and

interests of guests and residents with relevant and responsive programs and services; 2) Strategically expanding the Rideau Canal’s world heritage site image and profile, though opportunities to connect with the heritage of the Rideau Canal, its related communities and landscapes, and to enhance the reputation of it as sustainable heritage corridor; 3) Increasing and diversifying the number of visitors who can benefit from the experience opportunities offered throughout the corridor; 4) Identifying opportunities for collaborative and strategic investment in the growth and evolution of the Rideau Canal as a world heritage destination, thereby benefitting the economic, social and environmental well-being of Rideau Corridor communities; and 5) Achieving the above in accordance with Canada’s Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Sustainable Tourism.

At the meeting he will accept written comments and ideas and, time permitting, allow individuals to briefly explain their submissions. “The submissions will be used in the final report,” he says. In January 2014, a final report on what has been learned in the VEOC sessions will be released to the public for review. The next steps will be for all interested parties to evaluate these ideas, identify some items for commitment and to start making things happen. The VEOC or Visitor Experience Opportunity “Concept” is intended to be a living document which may be used to set the foundation for work that will hopefully guide the direction of the Rideau corridor into the future. This grassroots project has something for everyone and has the potential to engage a broader audience in creating a welcoming, more economically viable and sustainable Rideau Canal and corridor for years to come.

The process, though future oriented, has proven to be immediately relevant, and has already served to bring different groups together to move ideas forward in collaboration for the betterment of their businesses, their communities and ultimately for Rideau corridor. “I am extremely pleased at how well these sessions have been working and the ideas that are coming forward,” says Brown. “I am also encouraging people to take part in an online survey,” he explains. “The information gathered in this survey will stand with final VEOC report for consideration.” The survey can be accessed at: www.surveymonkey.com/s/RideauExperiences. “The public meeting I am holding will also be used to generate ideas and comments to add to this process,” he notes.

Local musician plans goodbye concert this Friday in Perth

The benefits of an enclosed cargo trailer When it comes to hauling your property enclosed cargo trailers offer maximum protection, both from the elements during a harsh Canadian winter, and from theft. It is this feature that really distinguishes enclosed trailers from flat-bed utility and sports models. Enclosed cargo trailers can be useful in a range of situations. For example, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the landscaping or construction business and need to bring large equipment to work sites on a daily basis, an enclosed trailer can be a convenient and simple way to do so. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also a good solution for moving recreational equipment, from ATVs to jet skis to camping gear. Finally, enclosed cargo trailers are perhaps the best option for hauling your furniture and other belongings when moving homes.

TM

Both cars and motorcycles can tow enclosed cargo trailers and they are available in a range of structures, sizes, and shapes.

Montreuil is using the event to obtain live performance video footage for use in her promotional packages for area booking agents and festival directors and this seemed like a perfect opportunity. Also on the bill for the evening is the Kingstonbased duo of Anna Sudac and Jesse MacMillan. Sudac is from Kingston and has spent years working in the performing arts in Toronto as well as Kingston. Montreuil felt it would be nice to bring some fresh, new talent to the area and Sudac seemed like the perfect choice. This event will have a cash bar and is a fundraiser for LGBT Lanark County Civitan. Also, anyone who takes video footage throughout the evening and provides it to Montreuil before leaving will receive their $5 admission back in appreciation.

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Some would call it a midlife crisis and others would simply say that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about time. When local area sax player and singer-songwriter, Shelley Montreuil, gave her notice to her landlord that November would be her last month living and working out of the Old Perth Shoe Factory building she knew there was no turning back. Having spent 20-plus years writing and performing music from jazz to blues to rock and roll and Janis Joplin, Montreuil is somewhat of a fixture in the Lanark County area but she has only recently decided to follow her heart and spend more dedicated time doing what she loves most â&#x20AC;&#x201C; writing and performing music. And so, the funky loft space is being traded in for a 30 foot RV, a home on wheels where she can always have her music and her web development business at her fingertips no matter where she happens to be. A gutsy move (some may use different adjectives) that can only lead to new experiences the plan is already turning itself into something wonderful. As a goodbye to her current live-work space at the Old Perth Shoe Factory, Montreuil is staging a four-band extravaganza set for this Friday, Nov. 22.

Native rights caravan makes a stop in Perth on Nov. 27 a petition to Parliament Hill, which will be introduced in the House of Commons the following morning by MP Corneliu Chisu. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The petition draws attention to the alarming gap between government services provided to Aboriginal people and those provided to nonAboriginal people with respect to housing, water, education, child and family services, health and social programs, and other basic needs,â&#x20AC;? says Stephen Watson, one of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s members.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Treaties were signed between First Nations and the Crown (Government of Canada). The struggle to have the treaty relationship respected should not be the responsibility of native people alone,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we are all treaty people, we too have a responsibility to ensure that our obligations and duties under the treaties are upheld by our government. Our intent is to show that non-native people not only do care about the issues the petition raises but also care

enough to go to some lengths to draw attention to them,â&#x20AC;? Watson stated. The petition was inspired by a number of political realities facing First Nations peoples, including the fact that Ontario elementary schools receive on average $11,000 per student while schools on reserves receive on average $6,000 per student. In addition, there were 168 contaminated water advisories reported in 127 First Nations communities in 2011, while real per capita transfers

from Ottawa to the provinces for health and social programs were up 40 per cent since 1996, while federal payments for reserve infrastructure (such as housing) were down 40 per cent over the same period. Since the launch of their petition at a Sunday service at West Hill United in July, the Public Service Alliance of Canada, Unifor, Kairos, the Social Justice Project of the Southeast Toronto Presbytery of United Church, and the Caring Alliance, among other

groups, have endorsed and circulated the document, and thousands have signed on. An online version is also available at avaaz.net.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Food security must be addressed in our communities DEAR EDITOR: Thank you very much for your recent commentary on the rising cost of food in the tri-county area (“Food for thought,” Nov. 7). The editorial noted some alarming facts and figures about the rising cost of food in the area, and the number of people who live in a state of food insecurity. I agree wholeheartedly with the advice that was provided in the commentary; namely, that we should all make donations to local food banks in an attempt to help our neighbours fight off hunger. It is the very least we can do to help out. At the same time, I urge readers to begin thinking why such conditions exist in our land of plenty. In my view, it is a real blight on our society that 9.3 per cent of people in the tri-county area believe that they cannot afford to put enough food on the table to adequately feed their family.

If 9.3 per cent of the citizens in the tri-county area came down with some sort of serious disease, I would want to make sure that they received all the treatment they required. At the same time, I would want to try to help determine the cause of the disease in order to prevent future outbreaks. The same sort of thinking should be applied to hunger in our community. Having to use a food bank is a humiliating experience. For the sake of the children whose parents need to use this community resource, we need to address food security. And this, in my view, amounts to going beyond donating to food banks. Kerry Badgley Kemptville

COMMENTARY

Zero tolerance Editorial – The holidays carry with them many customs and the Ontario Provincial Police’s (OPP) annual tradition is to keep roadways safe with their annual Festive RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) campaign. The campaign is set to officially kick off this Saturday (Nov. 23) and will run straight through the holidays, wrapping up on Jan. 2. Throughout the campaign, motorists can expect to experience many festive RIDE stops throughout Lanark County and Leeds and Grenville as police officers check for impaired driving. While it’s unfortunate traditions like these have to exist, it’s comforting to know the OPP is there enforcing the message of drive sober and arrive alive. The RIDE programs are making strides towards that. According to statistics released by the OPP, in 2011, there were 90,277 impaired driving incidents in Canada but Ontario had the lowest rate among all provinces. The OPP credits public enforcement and education, as well as motorists’ good driving efforts for keeping those numbers down. There is still much to be done, however. There is no safe amount of alcohol to have in your body when getting behind the wheel. The best method to practice is that of zero tolerance. In the past two Festive RIDE campaigns alone (2011 and 2012), the OPP have doled out 1,208 warn range suspensions (when a driver’s blood alcohol concentration falls between 0.05 to 0.08 range). Warn range suspensions carry with them an immediate loss of licence and motorists are not allowed to drive for a minimum of three days. Over and above those suspensions, the OPP handed out 1,375 impaired driving charges over the last two campaigns. The OPP is also asking the public to share their personal experiences, tips and thoughts on their Facebook page. We all contribute to the safety of our roadways so make good decisions this holiday season.

Wreath of waxed leaves brought a bit of joy for Mother Lifestyle – Where Mother got the idea, no one knew. It certainly wasn’t from Aunt Bertha on the next farm. She was far too practical to do something that took a lot of time and really didn’t amount to a hill of beans when it came to keeping food on the table. No, my sister Audrey said it was probably something she picked up when she lived in New York. Father of course, said he never “heard” of anything so crazy in his whole life! Fall had settled in, and with the blasts of cold winter already closing in around us, but snow yet to come, Mother decided she would do something to keep the season alive as long as she could. The lawn at the side of the house still had plenty of fallen maple leaves on the ground, and Mother thought it would give a nice touch to the table at meal times if she could just bring a bit of those rich fall colours indoors. She was going to wax the leaves, and place them on a lace doily all around the spoon holder and the sugar bowl. A small honey pail held all the pieces of wax that came off the top of

the preserve and pickle jars once they were opened, and Mother would use it instead of buying a whole box of wax at Briscoe’s General Store. That alone should have impressed Father, but it did nothing of the sort. He still thought waxing leaves was right up there with trying to nurse geraniums through the winter once they had lost their bloom, which Mother was prone to do. But Mother paid him no heed. It was on a Saturday that cold fall day when she sent Audrey and me out to the yard. We were to bring in only those leaves which were perfectly formed, didn’t have a break in them, or a mark on them, and were to be the largest and reddest we could find. We shoved the fallen leaves around the ground with the toes of our boots and ever so carefully gathered those we thought were exactly what Mother had asked for. Mother had given us a breadbasket to bring them in, and she told us over and over again to handle them very carefully, laying one on top of the other so they wouldn’t break.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

While Audrey and I were out in the yard picking through the leaves, which by that time in the fall were wet and soggy, Mother was in the kitchen melting the wax from the tops of the opened pickle and preserves jars on the Findlay Oval. She had spread out pages of the Renfrew Mercury on the bake table, and Audrey and I were told to very, very carefully, lay out the leaves, making sure they were placed gently on the tea towel. Mother, as carefully as she would wipe a baby’s bottom, dabbed the leaves with a tea towel. She brought the pot over to the bake table and, picking up a leaf at a time by its stem, dipped it News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Howaida Sorour, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Kelly Kent, Jennifer Westendorp DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-284-0124 ,ext. 27 CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Judy Michaelis Email: jmichaelis@perfprint.ca Lee Ann Gilligan Email: lgilligan@perfprint.ca Jennifer Coughlin Email: jcoughlin@perfprint.ca

carefully into the melted wax. The leaf was then put onto yet another tea towel where Mother said anyone who touched it would do so at their own peril! Father came in for his supper, glanced at the waxed leaves, shook his head, and headed for the wash basin. Not a word was mentioned about the waxed leaves over supper. But Mother rushed us through ‘redding’ up the kitchen that night and had Audrey wipe the redcheckered oilcloth twice to make sure it was good and dry. She then carefully, making a circle around the sugar bowl and spoon holder, laid out the waxed leaves. She overlapped them and Audrey and I thought we had the cleverest mother in all of Renfrew County! With the simple placing of waxed leaves, Mother had turned our plain old table into something grand. Father complained there was no place to put the coal oil lamp. Mother settled that by pulling down the Coleman lamp that hung over the table and was used only when we had company, as the fragile wicks cost a whole dime at Briscoe’s General Store.

Of course, any wax that was left over was put aside to set, and then cut into blocks and again stored in the little honey pail to use when Mother again put down preserves and pickles. Nothing was wasted. Audrey and I thought the leaf display was lovely. And it stayed on the table for the whole week. Audrey said it was the steady throbbing heat of the Findlay Oval, Father said they had just died a natural death, but by the next Saturday, the leaves had started to curl and after Emerson dropped several spoons from the spoon holder, he said accidently, the leaves started to look the worst for wear. It was with great reluctance the next Saturday morning, what was left of the leaves was gathered up and tossed into the cook stove. Father said it was time. After all, that night it was our turn to host the Saturday night house party, and the old pine table was needed for euchre. A red geranium, which had seen better days, took the place of the wreath of wax leaves. It, and the waxed leaves, was Mother’s way of trying desperately • 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.

individual, when given the right help, can greatly improve their weak areas in literacy, directionality and more. Dyslexia manifests in several ways and it can be mild, moderate or severe in an individual. Most people with dyslexia can read â&#x20AC;&#x201C; up to a point. But auditory processing problems prevent them from hearing all the individual sounds in a word. So they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read by sounding out. Instead, they use alternative strategies: context clues (pictures and a predictable or familiar story), the shapes of words, and guessing based on the first letter or two. However, their memories can hold only a limited number of words. So these strategies will fail them by third or fourth grade. Without the right

type of help, they cannot progress any further â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no matter how smart they are and how hard they try. Programs designed to help dyslexics read and write focus first on phonemic (sound) awareness, then work on decoding syllables. These programs are also multisensory, meaning they engage all the learnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senses as research has shown this is the way dyslexics learn best. Dyslexia results from a neurological difference; that is, a brain difference. In a dyslexic, language processing is not sent to the language centre found in the left side of the brain. It goes to the different places, places not set up to process language. However, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never too late for someone with dyslexia to improve

their literacy skills â&#x20AC;&#x201C; people in their 80s have improved with tutoring! If you are interested in learning more about dyslexia and the solutions to dyslexia, you are invited to attend a free information session presented by Laura Mullin, Professional Tutor at Joy of Reading.

A Knight is eligible to join the 4th Degree after completing the first, second and third degrees of the order and is thereafter referred to as Sir Knight. The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism and to encourage active Catholic citizenship, in addition to the orderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three basic tenets. They are often referred to as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;visible arm of the Knights,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; due to the wearing of regalia (naval chapeau, sword, cape, etc.) in parades and social events and on more sombre occasions such as funerals, whereby we honour the passing of a fellow Knight and pay our respects to the surviving family members. Charity, unity and fraternity are the founding principles of the Knights of Columbus and our venerable founder, Father Michael J. McGivney started our order on March 29, 1882 and is in the process of being canonized at this time. Our District 4th Degree Assembly (Archbishop J.L Wilhelm Assembly 2783 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; currently with more than 100 active 4th Degree members) exists primarily because of the efforts of Knights such as: (current) Worthy Master Tony Noonan; (the late) Former Worthy Master Dick Cordick; Sir Knight Doctor JEM St. Rose; Past District Deputy Joe MacEachern; and Sir Knight George St. Denis, to name but a few. There were 56 original Charter members when the Archbishop J.L Wilhem Assembly 2783 began in 2003. The ladies of our assembly are instrumental and remain key in the success of all community/parish Knights of Columbus charitable functions and drives in all their respective communities, in both the 4th Degree Assemblies and in the 3rd Degree Councils in our Order. A 4th Degree Assembly consists of an elected panel of executive officers installed annually, and a Worthy Friar â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for Assembly 2783, that being Father Tom MacDonald of Toledo, and fellow Sir Knights.

Retirement living made simple.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is taking the rare step of thanking Ontario drivers ahead of their 2013 Festive RIDE (Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere) campaign for not driving impaired over the holidays and for helping them get impaired drivers off our roads. The reason for the early thank you is because the OPP knows that the vast majority of drivers do understand that enforcement is only part of the solution and that driving sober is the single most important factor in ending the numerous impaired driving related deaths that occur on Ontario roads every year. The OPP considers these drivers to be among their most dedicated road safety partners because they share the responsibility of saving lives on our roads through responsible driving behaviour. The campaign runs from Nov. 23 to Jan. 2. According to the OPP, the public can expect to see as many OPP Festive RIDE stops as ever during this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign, in order to deal with the relatively small number of drivers who choose to get an impaired driving charge over the simpler and less costly solution of not getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. Unfortunately, the irresponsible behav-

iour of one driver can negatively affect the lives of many. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am calling on all road users to help us keep everyone safe over the holidays. Never allow yourself to drink and drive, never allow someone you suspect is impaired by alcohol or drugs to drive and if you are out on the road and suspect that a driver is impaired, call 9-1-1. I would like to thank in advance the hundreds of thousands of drivers we know we can count on to take these simple but important measures to help us get everyone through the holiday safely,â&#x20AC;? said Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander, OPP Highway Safety Division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our most recent national statistics tell us that there were 90,277 impaired driving incidents in Canada in 2011 and I am proud to say that Ontario had one of the lowest impaired driving rates among all of the provinces that year. We attribute this to a combination of targeted police enforcement and education efforts by all safety partners, combined with the motoring publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generally favourable compliance with impaired driving laws, their awareness of the risks and their willingness to be a part of the solution,â&#x20AC;? said Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey, Provincial

Commander, Traffic Safety and Operational Support. The OPP is also reminding drivers that there is no safe amount of alcohol consumption when driving. This is evident every year in the number of Warn Range Suspensions the OPP issues to drivers whose Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) falls within the 0.05 to 0.08 range. Over the last two Festive RIDE campaigns (2011 and 2012), OPP officers issued a total of 1,208 Warn Range Suspensions over and above the 1,375 impaired driving charges they laid throughout the province. Those who are issued a Warn Range Suspension immediately lose their licence at the roadside and are not allowed to drive from that point on for a minimum of three days. The OPP is asking the public to join in on the conversation on Facebook during the campaign. Share your thoughts, stories and personal experiences with impaired drivers/driving, as well as any positive stories about people you encounter over the holidays whose actions and decisions about drinking and driving contribute to a safe holiday season on our roads. Submitted by the Ontario Provincial Police.

Arts – For the many gifted volunteers involved in community theatre across Ontario, this is an exciting time of year. Every November, actors, directors, costume and set designers, lighting technicians and stage crews come together for the Eastern Ontario Drama League One-Act Play Festival, a feast of great entertainment, and a celebration of excellence in community theatre. This year the festival, which is a professionally adjudicated competition, was hosted by Theatre Night in Merrickville, where groups from Merrickville, Peterborough, Prince Edward County, Lindsay, Ottawa, Perth, and the Bay of Quinte gathered to perform one-act plays for capacity audiences. And once again, Perth’s own Studio Theatre was a standout. The Studio Theatre’s entry this year was Norm Foster’s comedy The Death of Me, and a rousing standing ovation was only the first of many recognitions it received. At the festival awards banquet, The Death of Me was nominated for Best Costumes, Best Production, and Best Visual Production. Then the accolades really began: First, the show’s cast of Tracy Noonan, Lucas Tennant, Patti Greer and Brian Tannenbaum won the acting award for Best Ensemble. Next, Barb Guthrie, a first-time director, won the Best Director trophy, a win that was especially sweet because although there is an individual First Time Director award, Guthrie was acknowledged to be the Best Director overall. The icing on the cake was the Studio Theatre’s win in perhaps the most prestigious category of all, the People’s Choice Award. The Death of Me was voted Best Production, as determined by a poll of audience members who had seen all seven plays. It was a thrilling conclusion to this year’s festival, and a recognition of the high quality achieved by the Studio Theatre’s actors, directors and stage technicians. Adjudicator Carolee Mason, the noted theatre educator, director, and choreographer for whom PDCI’s Mason Theatre is named, along with her husband Jeff, shared a wealth of advice and insights with the companies, and praised their professionalism. As an audience member, you couldn’t help feeling a renewed respect for community theatre, and for the many volunteers who work tirelessly to bring theatre to local stages. Perth is blessed with one of the finest community theatres in the province. If you haven’t yet been to a Studio Theatre production, make time to come out and see a play. It’s a theatre experience you’ll enjoy, and one we can all be proud of.

Kemptville woman praises local Canadian Cancer Society transportation program By GENA GIBSON For the Canadian Cancer Society, Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit

Community – When Kemptville resident Rebecca Dukes received a cancer diagnosis in August, she knew who to call to support her on her journey through treatment. Dukes turned to the Canadian Cancer Society and its transportation program immediately, as she made a plan with doctors for chemotherapy and radiation. The Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit of the organization covers the area from Gananoque to Cardinal, as well as Lanark County and everywhere in between, and Dukes already had experience with its many volunteer drivers. She was first diagnosed with cancer in 2005, and looked into the transportation program. After using the services during those treatments, she knew how it worked and how important it was. “They’re lifesavers, by golly,” she stressed. “Otherwise I wouldn’t be able to make it to 95 per cent of my appointments.” Dukes is still undergoing treatments, with a second round of chemotherapy following a round of chemo once every three weeks and then 15 sessions of radiation, five days a week for three weeks. She said she has had 10-12 different drivers, and “they’ve all been wonderful.” “They’re great, caring people,”

she added. “They’re awesome conversationalists.” Dukes said she has had drivers from Kemptville, Prescott, Smiths Falls and the surrounding areas pick her up in Kemptville and take her to the General site of the Ottawa Hospital, or the Queensway-Carleton Hospital, for treatments and appointments. With trips running about an hour each way, she said, she gets to know the drivers and they get to know her. She said she would definitely recommend the program to other people undergoing cancer treatments. “If people don’t get to their appointments, they’re probably not going to make it,’ she pointed out. “They (the drivers) do it out of the goodness of their hearts.” She admitted that it hasn’t been fun, dealing with the reality of a second diagnosis of cancer – this time, lung cancer. She said the drivers are always cheerful, lifting her spirits despite the circumstances. “It’s a wonderful service and I thank God for it.” Volunteer drivers with the Canadian Cancer Society receive mileage pay for their trips to hospitals in Ottawa, Kingston and occasionally further afield. 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. For that reason, the local Canadian Cancer Society has joined with others across Ontario to once again pro-

a national community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer. To learn more, visit www.cancer. ca or call the bilingual Cancer Information Service, toll-free, at 1 888 939-3333.

Smiths Falls hosts prestigious Dominion Tankard in just over two months By HIT Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ROLL

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Dominion Tankard gets under way in just over two months, at the new Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre (Arena). Mark your calendars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jan. 27 to Feb. 2 inclusive. An event of this magnitude is a major undertaking that requires a significant committee structure. Agnes McVeety along with Paul Howard are cochairing the 2014 Dominion Tankard Host Committee with the intention of making the Ontario Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Curling Championship a â&#x20AC;&#x153;roaring successâ&#x20AC;?. In addition to the cochairs we have a treasurer, administrator, accounting, facilities, logistics/ volunteers, operations,

ice, social-entertainment and food and sponsorship/ marketing subcommittees. Most of these committees are meeting regularly to fine tune their approach and ensure the delivery of a memorable Tankard. The Masters curling event from Abbotsford, B.C. at the first of the month, found the Glenn Howard rink to be in good form. They won this first of the four grand slam events of the season. The level of play was exceptional which augurs well for their defence of the Ontario title here in Smiths Falls in January. The Howard/Martin final game was like a chess match with lots of strategy and great shots. The Howard rink has been in four events so far this season

and has made it to the finals three times. The next Grand Slam event takes place this weekend in Medicine Hat, Alta. If a menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rink wins all four events of the Grand Slam they will receive $1 million. On the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side there are two events and if one rink wins both they will win $100,000. Rachel Homan of Ottawa won the first event. Most of the top rinks from around the world participate in the Grand Slams. Entertainment will be

provided each evening of the Tankard from 9 to 12 in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lockmaster Houseâ&#x20AC;? in the Upper Hall of the arena. Most of the entertainment will be musical with a wide variety from jazz, Celtic

to rock and pop. There will be a variety show one night. Entertainers are coming from across our region. Before each draw, the National Anthem will be played. Harold Frizell (613-283-5507) our entertainment director is looking for groups or individuals to perform O Canada. Several groups including SFCDI have stepped forward . If you or your organization are interested, please contact Harold. More information on specific performers will be provided

as we get closer to the event. The ticket package order forms are available online at www.thedominiontankard2014.ca, at the arena and curling clubs in the readership area. Any one of the packages would make a great Christmas gift and with only 41 days to Christmas, something to consider for the curling fans in your life. Single draw tickets are now available. There will be 11 draws in the round robin portion of the event. Each draw

which consists of five games of 10 ends will take 2.5 to three hours to complete. Single draw tickets will cost $15 during the round robin for general admission and $20 for Premium seating; but will escalate steadily throughout the playoffs reaching $35 and $40 respectively for the Championship game. For more information, please call 613-812-3372 or the Smiths Falls Curling and Squash Club at 283-4700 or curling@ bellnet.ca Slide into the Falls;

Mary Vandenhoff receives Ontario Land Trust Alliance Vision Award Community – Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy’s (MMLTC) own Mary Vandenhoff was recently honoured by the Ontario Land Trust Alliance (OLTA) at their annual conference when she received their 2013 Vision Award for Volunteers in recognition of her tireless and innovative leadership in the land trust movement. The MMLTC is very proud of Van-

denhoff and delighted to see her receive this prestigious award. Ten years ago none of us would have believed how far we would come in such a short period of time nor that a small organization, located in a relatively remote and nonaffluent part of the province, would have one of our own so recognized. As Vandenhoff stated in her acceptance response, MMLTC is a working

board where each volunteer director is expected to carry the work forward. However, Vandenhoff recognized from the beginning that the task is so great that even if each director could devote full time to the work, our goals would always remain beyond our grasp. She helped forge partnerships in the community with like-minded groups and rallied community members to join us. This is never an easy task but her own demonstration of a volunteer extraordinaire makes the path much easier. Volunteers are the life-blood of our organization. Perhaps the key to Vandnhoff’s success and what inspires so many to follow

her example is her unshakable belief in the importance of helping land owners to protect their wonderful wilderness properties so that they will be forever there for the benefit of wildlife and to meet the needs of our children for eons of time. Each time she sees the happiness on the face of a child who visits one of the protected properties, or sees the power of nature reach deep into our inner core, she comes away refreshed and reinvigorated to continue on. Many of us are responding to her leadership and are discovering for ourselves that there are few things in life that we can devote our time to that will

have such wonderful results on so many levels, lasting far beyond our own lifetime – a legacy that only grows more important as the decades pass. As Vandenhoff so elegantly stated, it is her dream that many will discover for themselves how personally satisfying it is to be part of such an important cause. We are proud of her and of all our volunteers and will continue to take pleasure in seeing many others participate with their time, and yes with their financial support, to make this glorious dream a reality.

Fifty years later mystery surrounds JFK’s assassination

Stunning news I was only 11 at the time but I clearly remember wandering around the school yard during recess, stunned by what I had just heard. I wasn’t alone! All of the older students and teachers were doing the same thing. Some teachers and a number of kids were in tears. People today have become so desensitized to violence that it may seem odd to consider the attitude and the feelings we had in 1963. At that time Kennedy was a hero to North Americans. The Cold War had its terrifying moments. The worst was in the fall of 1962. US intelligence discovered the USSR had deployed missile launchers on the island nation of Cuba. For a few tense days in October the world stood on the brink of nuclear war. Never before or since has such a scenario occurred. In effect the young American president went toe-to-toe with Nikita Khrushchev, the leader of the Soviet Union. It was Khrushchev who blinked! With the benefit of information which wasn’t available at the time, we now know Kennedy’s handling of the crisis wasn’t as perfect as we thought. Neither was his personal life of course. But at that time most people believed JFK’s calm approach had saved the world. Little wonder he was put on a pedestal!

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

The ongoing, positive publicity surrounding Kennedy, his glamorous wife Jacqueline and their two young children Caroline and John Jr. made them the best-known family on the planet. In the wake of the assassination we were devastated by the images of the president’s widow, still wearing her bloodstained dress, which flickered across our TV screens. I’ve always been a newshound. Coming from a newspaper family that isn’t surprising, I suppose. But on the terrible weekend following JFK’s slaying my family and I were glued to the television, watching continually as the drama unfolded. Early on that Sunday afternoon, we were watching the lead-up to a Canadian Football League playoff game between Ottawa Rough Riders and Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Suddenly the channel cut away to show American TV coverage of alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s transfer from the Dallas Police Station to the more secure county jail. Oswald never made it. Nightclub owner Jack Ruby stepped out of the crowd and shot him with a pistol. Oswald was rushed to hospital where he died of his wounds. At that moment it seemed to me the world had descended into madness. I had never before seen such a thing! On Monday, Nov. 25, 1963 television sets were in place in every classroom in our school so students and teachers could watch Kennedy’s state funeral. Like our American neighbours, Canadians joined in mourning the loss of the youngest president in US history. Kennedy was just 46. I won’t go into great detail because no American president, with the possible exception of Franklin D. Roosevelt, has had so much written about them. The number of books on JFK’s assassination alone is staggering. His slaying was not unprecedented of course. Three earlier American presidents were also felled by assassin’s bullets. Abraham Lincoln in 1865, James Garfield in 1881 and William McKinley in 1901. At least two major things separate Kennedy’s assassination from the others. He died at a time when the mass media was just coming of age due to the increasing impact of television. As a result the Kennedy assassination was arguably the biggest news story of the 20th century. Because it happened in modern times it is also THE most analyzed crime in history.

short on substance. But like so many other interested people I have a hard time believing the official line that just one individual was involved in the assassination and its aftermath. In September 1964 the Warren Commission, appointed to investigate the assassination, released an 889-page report. Their conclusion was that Oswald, acting alone, shot Kennedy and seriously wounded Texas Governor John Connally who was seated ahead of the president. It is often forgotten that Oswald is also alleged to have shot and killed veteran Dallas police officer J.D. Tippit who attempted to stop a man for questioning some 45 minutes after the assassination. The Warren Commission ruled that Ruby, seeking revenge for JFK’s murder, was the only person involved in the fatal shooting of Oswald two days later. Based on the totality of evidence I remain skeptical. The Warren package is just too neat and tidy. And Oswald’s slaying was far too convenient all around. If you are at all familiar with the case then you will know there are still a lot of unconnected dots in this picture. My hope is the veil of secrecy which continues to cloak details of Kennedy’s assassination will eventually be lifted and the whole truth will be revealed in my lifetime. Fifty years after the fact JFK’s murder is just as sad and the mystery which surrounds his untimely death is just as intriguing! Share your memories of JFK’s assassination with Jeff. He can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers.com.

Conspiracy theories As the headline on this column notes it is the uncertainty which continues to surround his murder that sets Kennedy’s death apart. Fifty years later conspiracy theories continue to abound. The latest claim is set out in a TV documentary aired at the beginning of this month. The Canadian-Australia co-production claims one of Kennedy’s Secret Service security detail accidentally fired the fatal head shot. The film, based on one of the many books about the incident, says an inexperienced agent (he died two years ago) pulled a handgun after hearing the first shots. The writer alleges the man inadvertently pulled the trigger and a bullet struck Kennedy who was riding in the vehicle ahead. The evidence presented is interesting. Especially considering that the Secret Service agents involved have publicly admitted their security detail was very low on experienced officers during the fateful tour of Texas which ended so tragically in Dealey Plaza, Dallas. As a career journalist with an intense interest in the case I have read countless articles and watched endless documentaries outlining conspiracy theories. Most are long on sensationalism and THE EMC - 23 - Thursday, November 21, 2013

Lifestyle – Where were you on Friday, Nov. 22, 1963? Like me, anyone who was alive on that fall afternoon half a century ago is almost sure to remember exactly where they were and what they were doing. Events that capture the attention of everyone in the world are rare. And certainly the tragedy that unfolded on the streets of Dallas, Texas 50 years ago tomorrow qualifies as “world shaking.” The President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was killed by gunfire as he rode in a motorcade through the streets of the southern US city. Few events in modern times can replicate the sense of horror and loss that gripped North America and much of the globe in the wake of JFK’s murder. One year earlier Kennedy was credited with saving the world from nuclear annihilation during what is known as the “Cuban Missile Crisis.” His sudden, violent death was so shocking. Anyone old enough to appreciate the depth of the tragedy that occurred in Dallas wondered what might happen next? JFK’s assassination left us feeling sad, scared and vulnerable! In my lifetime there is only one other calamity that prompted feelings approaching how I felt on Nov. 22, 1963. That occurred nearly 38 years later, on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. I was much older of course. But the terrorist attacks on the US, including the collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, sparked the same sense of shock and fear I felt in the aftermath of Kennedy’s slaying. The images from both events are forever seared into my memory! In the lead-up to the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination the details from those shocking times have been reprised in books, newspaper and magazine stories as well as in a made for television movie and numerous TV and radio documentaries. The black and white footage from that time (few people had colour TV in those days) is just as stark and troubling now as it was then. Watching an emotional Walter Cronkite, the late, great anchor of CBS Television News, struggle to announce that JFK had died of his wounds, still brings a lump to my throat. One of the best programs I saw last week was a two-night, fourhour documentary, part of the always impressive ‘American Experience’ series on PBS. I thought I knew a lot about JFK but I learned much more during that excellent program. I began this column by asking where people were on that tragic day. Interestingly tomorrow’s 50th anniversary also falls on a Friday which, somehow, makes it even more poignant. For me the memory is as fresh as if it happened yesterday. It was early afternoon and I was in the Grade 6 classroom at Stittsville Union Public School. The door suddenly opened and our principal, the late Mrs. Ida Alexander, strode in wearing a grim look. She told us she had heard on the radio that President Kennedy had been shot and killed.

Tolkien’s epic The Hobbit comes to Perth live onstage Nov. 28, 29 Arts – On Nov. 28 and 29, be prepared for a marauding dragon, 12 dwarves, a wizard, several bow-and-arrow-laden elves, trolls, goblins, spiders, and an unsuspecting hobbit to come to town. The Perth Academy of Musical Theatre is extremely proud to present J.R.R. Tolkien’s famous epic The Hobbit, which will be coming to life onstage in the gorgeous sanctuary of St. Paul’s United Church in Perth. Unlike the recent film versions of the show which present the story as a trilogy, this adaptation, penned by Canadian playwright Kim Selody, presents the show in its entirety, and is very true to Tolkien’s original. Compelling characters, gorgeous music, exciting swordplay and beautiful set pieces make this a presentation not to be missed! Bilbo Baggins lives a quiet, peaceful life in his comfortable hole at Bag End. Bilbo lives in a hole because he is a hobbit – one of a race of

small, plump people about half the size of humans, with furry toes and a great love of good food and drink. Bilbo is quite content at Bag End, near the bustling hobbit village of Hobbiton, but one day his comfort is shattered by the arrival of the old wizard Gandalf, who persuades Bilbo to set out on an adventure with a group of thirteen militant dwarves. The dwarves are embarking on a great quest to reclaim their treasure from the marauding dragon Smaug, and Bilbo is to act as their “burglar.” The dwarves are very skeptical about Gandalf’s choice for a burglar, and Bilbo is terrified to leave his comfortable life to seek adventure. But Gandalf assures both Bilbo and the dwarves that there is more to the little hobbit than meets the eye. After the group sets out, they are captured by hungry trolls, spiders, goblins, and wood elves, from which the adventurers, with the help

of their new burglar, and the magic ring that he secures from an encounter with the creature Gollum, escape successfully. However, Bilbo’s encounter with the sly dragon Smaug is yet to be determined, as the adventure continues through Smaug’s wrath at Bilbo’s intrusion, and an epic battle of fie armies for control of the treasure of the Lonely Mountain. The beautiful sanctuary of St. Paul’s Church provides an exciting setting for this production with its cathedral ceilings, balcony, and many nooks and crannies from which various mysterious creatures appear. The acoustics for the beautiful singing by the actors are also excellent. The Hobbit will be presented by a group of 18 talented young actors, ranging in age from seven through 16, several of which come from as far away as Ottawa and Kingston, to participate in this fantastic production. Audience

members will be enchanted and amazed at the talent of these young performers, as they take us on an “unexpected journey” through the enchanted lands of Middle Earth. The Hobbit will take place

at St. Paul’s United Church in Perth (25 Gore Street West) on Thursday, Nov. 28 and Friday, Nov. 29, at 7 p.m. The show is suitable for all ages, so do bring the whole family along for an exciting night! Tickets are $12 each,

and are available through Tickets Please (Jo’s Clothes in Perth – 613-485-6434 – www.ticketsplease.ca) or at the door. For more information, call 613-706-0954 or visit www. perthacademy.ca.

Enjoying one fall weekend of talented performers

her musical skills blossomed. When the relationship ended, she headed to Halifax and through hosting an open mic night became well known and CBC helped with her first, self-titled album. Her verbal dexterity in crafting her songs about snippets of life, whether her own or stories of others help ease those listening into that place where you’re, as if, recollecting with a family friend. There’s a tranquillity, an accepting story worth repeating, where she intelligently captures past historical culture, colours, emotions and dreams and delivers through her deep, haunting voice what her soulful eye envisions. I was surprised and delighted to hear she had performed as Marilla in Anne of Green Gables for two seasons to which I could see in my minds-eye her nailing that part, one I’d previously seen done by the late, great Barbara Hamilton, back in the day, in the same locale. The recording business is not a kind one. As a naive public we see the successes but there are far more stories of musicians having been kicked and taken advantage of. Smith’s wellreceived growth saw her winning and being nominated for many musical awards, playing festivals and distant places desiring her attendance. I saw her first live with a full band at the Tulip Festival in Ottawa and couldn’t wait to hear and see more of this up and coming talent. Unfortunately the business behind the scenes took its toll as well as some challenging health issues. Luckily, I’m happy to report Smith is definitely back and her latest new CD Everything is Moving, produced by Paul Mills (who, among his many successes including Stan Rogers, most recently helped us hear astro-

This album blends traditional tunes with several of her own timeless creations to connect you to this talented, timeless soul. At the Studio Theatre she was very ably backed by local Jamie Campbell on guitar (previously an acoustic player for Roch Voisine in his prime) and Ken Hall on keyboards of Kingston. The evening was made complete by catching the last few tunes at the Golden Arrow Pub by Long Sault Trio who perform self-written and more traditional tunes. Linda Grenier, Victor Maltby and Dave Tilson have created and honed a sweet sound. Catch them where you can.

With Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame inductee; perennial emcee Charlie Kitts in control, the band kicked off each set with a few tunes to get us all in the mood. There was much mention of the musical families we are blessed with in the area and a member of one of them, Barry Munro’s son, Brad Munro, was the first up and nailed several tunes, old and new. From another musical family, Cheryl Adrain-Dermann (Harry Adrain being her proud father) took the show onward, her lovely vocals adding some nice spark, especially her version of ‘Satin Sheets’ which apparently Ray Donaldson always got her to sing and to whom she dedicated it. She really hit her stride though with her rendition of the Righteous Brothers’ classic tune, ‘Unchained Melody’ (music by Alex North and lyrics by Hy Zaret). Heading up the second set, Brian Ostrom nailed ‘Steel Guitar Rag’ in honour of Ray and Wade Foster dedicated a new song he’d recently written to Ray, entitled ‘The Band of the Angels,’ that understandably brought the audience to their feet. Andy Bowes, from yet another local musical family – The Bowes Brothers – told a few stories of Ray. See MUSIC page 27

Lifestyle – It took a couple of evenings witnessing talented performers in our neck of the woods to help get me through our first truly rainy, damp, fall weekend of the year. We’ve been revelling in the extended warm, sunny, above normal temperature days we’ve had to enjoy the uniqueness many parts of the world are envious of: the changing of seasons and the remarkable colours fall shares with us. It was through a visiting friend’s eyes from Columbia where they don’t get a change of season that I was reminded just how lucky we are to be able to witness the diverse palate of colours the changing leaves bring to us. It also reminds us of the work necessitated in raking and bagging but, usually the colours help ease these necessary seasonal tasks. I’ve written before about Maritime singer/songwriter Laura Smith’s impact on the audience this past summer at Stewart Park Festival, how they rose in unison to offer her a standing ovation following her set. Much deserved. I’ve known of her music for many years, probably being first turned on to her unique voice along with so many others by Peter Gzowski’s championing her on CBC’s Morningside. Her adaptation of the traditional Scottish folk song ‘My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean’, entitled ‘My Bonny’ won her a continually growing following and prominence in the Canadian music scene. Born and raised in London, ON, she was a relatively late bloomer musically, teaching herself first piano and later guitar. She claims her writing was encouraged by Governor General Award-winning poet and then writerin-residence at Western University, Margaret Avison. She played locally and then moved to Toronto where she gigged for nine years before moving to Cape Breton with her then beau, a lighthouse keeper. As she says, “this dramatic change of environment, with the rugged landscape, shifting ocean, moon filled nights and welcoming community made her feel she had arrived home.” She played local ceilidhs with her fiddle playing lighthouse keeper and

South Nation Conservation donates New statistics show COPD numbers copies of book to local library continue to rise across province

News - South Nation Conservation has donated copies of its book, ‘Our Watershed, Our Heritage’ to the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry County Library. The book was presented in recognition of the support of library staff in researching information for the book. Murray Inch, a resident of South Mountain, was assisted by staff at the South Mountain, Chesterville, Winchester and Morewood branches both in researching his own contributions to the book and in discovering other historical accounts of the watershed. The 136-page tome was produced by South Nation Conservation to celebrate its 65th anniversary. “This book brings to life the history of the river and its inhabitants,” chair Bill Smirle wrote in a message at the beginning of the publication. “Please take a moment to reflect on these stories as we continue to work together to enhance our quality of life and protect our natural resources.”

South Nation Conservation streamlined its name several years ago and was formed in 1947 after the provincial government passed enabling legislation the previous year. Its locally appointed directors and staff tend to a 4,200 square-km jurisdiction extending from the St. Lawrence River near Brockville to the Ottawa River at Plantagenet. The SD&G County Library was established in 1971, and provides library service to all residents of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry. The library’s mission is to be actively engaged and make a significant contribution to the social and economic success of the community. The library does so by providing free, convenient and equitable access to information for all residents as well as programs and services that support creativity, imagination, innovation and entrepreneurism. An official presentation took place Thursday, Oct. 31 at 3 p.m. at the South Mountain Branch of the SD&G County Library.

News – New Ontario health statistics released Nov. 20 show that the number of people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is still increasing. In 2011, one in nine Ontarians over the age of 35 – 842,376 people – had been diagnosed with COPD, up more than 11 per cent on the 2008 figure of 756,822. Among people 65 years and older in 2011, more than one in five (22.6 per cent) had COPD. COPD is one of the province’s deadliest, costliest and most prevalent chronic diseases. It is a progressive lung disease characterized by shortness of breath, cough and sputum production. As the disease progresses, shortness of breath limits activity and reduces quality of life. The gradual advance of the disease is associated with more frequent exacerbations, further reductions in airflow and premature death. The new COPD figures are part of an analysis of Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care data conducted by Dr. Andrea Gershon and her team at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES). Her analysis shows that between 2008 and 2011, there were more than 85,000 new cases of COPD and about 33,000 deaths each year. “We have been observing annual increases in the prevalence of COPD for a number of years,” said Dr. Gershon, a

scientist and respirologist at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, “and they are not just due to the aging of the population.” And respiratory health experts agree that the actual prevalence of COPD in Ontario is probably far higher than the official figures indicate. “COPD is underdiagnosed because in the early stages people are unaware that their airflow is reduced,” said Dr. Anna Day, a respirologist at Women’s College Hospital in Toronto and an authority on the diagnosis and treatment of COPD. The president and chief executive officer of the Ontario Lung Association, George Habib, said that the rising trend revealed in the official figures sends a clear signal that COPD could start to overwhelm our health-care system. “COPD patients are heavy users of the system,” said Habib. “They have more emergency room visits, much higher readmission rates than people with other diseases and among the longest, and therefore most costly, hospital stays of any illness.” “Our previous modeling indicated that the direct cost to the health-care system is going to escalate from $3.3 billion in 2011 to more than $172 billion in 2041,” he said. “The latest figures would suggest that this projection is very conservative.” Dr. Day said that a simple breathing test called spirom-

etry administered to at-risk individuals – smokers and former smokers over age 40 – could have a significant impact on the trajectory of COPD. “Spirometry is particularly important in diagnosing COPD in the early, or mild, stage when the various treatment options are most effective,” she said. “Diagnosing patients earlier and more accurately not only eases their burden significantly, it will also reduce the burden COPD is placing on our overstretched health-care system.” Early screening and diagnosis is one of several evidence-based interventions that the Ontario Lung Association says is essential to reduce the health and economic burden of lung disease. A comprehensive lung health action plan for the province would prevent lung disease, improve patient outcomes and save health-care dollars. About the Ontario Lung Association The Ontario Lung Association is a registered charity that assists, educates and empowers individuals living with or caring for others with lung disease. The lung association provides programs and services to patients and health-care providers, invests in lung research and campaigns for improved policies on lung health.

CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY!

ber of yet another one of the great local musical families, Barry Brown of the Family Brown clan. Barry sang several tunes he’d written through the years that were performed by Family Brown, including their first recorded song ‘RR # 2’. Barry’s grandparents had a farm they spent lots of time visiting over the years near Wilton, ON and he wrote this song in 1972 remembering those times. Barry went on to say the family has been enjoying hosting an annual benefit concert in that area for many years to raise funds for the upkeep of the local cemetery, where their grandparents are buried. Topping off the show was Barry inviting his baby sister, Tracey Brown, to join him onstage to sing a couple. Her version of Dolly Parton’s ‘Coat of Many Colours’ left many a tear. The packed house left satisfied. Now back to raking up the ‘beauty.’

From page 25

The one that hit home with the essence of Ray, for me, was Bowes describing how Ray had been in a vehicle with himself and Kenny Jackson, driven by a local politician, on their way to play the Good Roads Convention at the Royal York, in good ol’ Toronto. In Ray’s inevitable way, he got ragging on the politician about the Lanark Village water issue and, as Andy described, “Ray took his first breath around Belleville” ... a story that brought down the house. Andy ended his touching ‘roast’ with one of Ray’s favourites ‘Kansas City’. In a rare solo appearance, Rod Bowes, from that same musical family heritage, took to the stage with a few tunes and the now expected quips about his brothers and a story or two about our departed Ray. The 20-plus members of the Donaldson family in attendance were touched by the tributes. I spoke to pedal steel player, Brian Ostrom, following the event and he told me of Ray’s oft repeated desire to find a way to teach youth the pedal steel so it would be carried on locally. That would be Ray, the visionary. The evening closed with a short set by Canadian and Ottawa Valley Country Hall of Fame member and mem-

Vintage cast offers up memorable feel-good film MOVIE: Last Vegas STARRING: Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline, and Mary Steenburgen DIRECTOR: Jon Turteltaub RATING: PG Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Every once in a while thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a slow weekend at the box office where nothing opens. When that happens I take advantage by seeing a film I missed. This time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Last Vegas, and I have to say Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad it was a slow weekend. Billy (Michael Douglas), Paddy (Robert De Niro), Archie (Morgan Freeman) and Sam (Kevin Kline) have been friends for almost 60 years. These days Sam spends his time in Florida with his wife wondering who among them is next to die. Archie had a mild stroke, and his over protective son has had him on what amounts to house arrest ever since. Paddy spends his days in his bathrobe mourning the death of his wife. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Billy. Billy is about to get married to a woman half his age. In light of the pending nuptials the four decide they need to do it

My Take MARK HASKINS

up right. They all meet up in Las Vegas for a bachelor weekend to end all bachelor weekends. These guys have a lot of history and there are some unresolved issues, but none of that stops them from taking full advantage of everything life and Vegas has to offer. In the end it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how old you are, or who did what to whom. All that matters is that your friends are there for you. On the surface the premise for Last Vegas, four guys pushing 70 trying to recapture their glory days, is ludicrous. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not ludicrous, in fact itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful. This is one of those films that hits all the right notes at all the right times. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartwarming, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s romantic, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inspiring. This is how you live

life. This is what being friends is all about. Last Vegas is how you make a feel-good film. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing I really need to say about Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman or Kevin Kline. I could watch any one of these guys in the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst film and they would still be worth seeing. Having all four together in the same film is a real treat. These guys make it look easy. Their chemistry together is nothing short of magic. They are so smooth and so quick with each other it is a joy to watch. Mary Steenburgen plays Diana a former tax attorney-turned-Vegas lounge singer. Diana grabs the attention of the boys, and manages to put a wrinkle in Billyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding plans. Mary Steenburgen also garbs the attention of the audience. She is stunning. She lights up the screen, and is the perfect fifth for this already perfect foursome. I really liked Last Vegas. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect cast in the perfect feelgood movie. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Mudds present old story with a new twist By LAUREL TYE

Arts – The Christmas spirit has descended on Carleton Place and can be seen and heard in the Mississippi Mudds current performance, Humbug! The show is loosely based on the popular story, A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens. This panto/drama has most of the ingredients of a traditional English panto along with several twists and turns, which will certainly be a surprise. As artistic director of Humbug, I was keen to retain the redemption story theme of a pitiable, gruff miser who opens his heart once he has faced his past, present and possible future. To do this all in one night might be daunting

for any of us. That Scrooge can alter his dismal future by changing his ways is a wonderful theme of hope, and sees Scrooge choosing compassion over greed. However, being a panto, there was the freedom to twist parts of the story in unexpected ways, using improbable music for a Christmas tale, and introducing unlikely characters into the story. Gender bending is quite evident. A little bit of political humour will touch the funny bone of the adults while the sillier antics of a few characters will delight the young. The town of Carleton Place itself is well represented throughout the show in such a way that strangers to the town will be more familiar with the places and people after seeing the show.

The cast and crew have been happily rehearsing this unusual panto and we want to share our Christmas Cheer with you. We’re looking forward to seeing you there, and as Tiny Tim would exclaim, “God bless us every one.” Performances will be at the Carleton Place Town Hall. Evening performances, at 7:30 p.m., are Friday, Nov. 29; Saturday, Nov. 30; Friday, Dec. 6; and Saturday, Dec. 7. Matinee performances, at 2 p.m., are Sunday, Dec. 1 and Saturday, Dec. 7. Evening performances, $20. Matinees, $15. Tickets will be sold at the Carleton Place & District Chamber of Commerce, 132 Coleman Street, 613-2571976. For more information, visit mississippimudds.ca.

Community mourns long-time Legionnaire and super community builder By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - He absolutely refused to drink his beer out of a plastic cup, and because he was Jack Rabb, the upstairs bar at the Legion always kept one glass for his use. Now that glass will be retired. On Monday, Nov. 11, Regimental Sgt. Major Jack Omar Rabb passed away at the age of 82. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If he had planned it, he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done a better job,â&#x20AC;? said Carol Levere, president of the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He died on November 11, in the Legion hall he had built, among his friends, with his wife at his side.â&#x20AC;? If his passing was remarkable itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing compared to the man. His achievements alone fill two pages of text, and they only scratch the surface of what Mr. Rabb did for this town and for the people whose lives he touched. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember years ago, there was a man in town who had a house nearby and when Jack found out that the house didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have storm windows, he went out bought the materials and made storm windows for him. If he knew someone needed something he just did it,â&#x20AC;? said Enid Rabb, his wife of 58 years. A tall, energetic man, Mr. Rabb was the driving force behind the Legion addition, that tripled its size and made it possible for Branch 95 to rent its hall and gain revenue it sorely needed. That addition was such a success that the $250,000 loan that built it was paid back in six months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He and Enid supported all the functions that went on here (at the Legion). Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to miss seeing him; he was in here every day,â&#x20AC;? said Levere. Last Monday, Mr. Rabb started his day with a stop at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year he always came to the school for Remembrance Day assembly,â&#x20AC;? said Blake Seward, teacher at SFDCI. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have students here who are saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have to go to his funeralâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? The students knew him through the Lest We Forget program, because he was one of the driving forces in maintaining the program, reaching out to the youth and raising the funds to send a deserving student to Europe to visit the Second World War grave sites and battlefields. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to miss him. He had a really good heart. He just had a way about him that made you like him, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to miss about him,â&#x20AC;? said 13-year-old Ben Seward. Mr. Rabb did so much for so many, adding untold qualities to life in Smiths Falls. He was instrumental in building a creative play structure at Lower Reach Park, for renovating a CPR caboose at Victoria Park, for renovating dressing rooms and seating at the old Memorial Community Centre. He was a driving force behind Settlers Days. He was involved in minor hockey, both on the executive and as coach and convenor; volunteered with the Rideau Lakes boy scouts; fundraised for Heritage House and the hospital and he coached T-ball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was the fundraiser for the hospital in Smiths Falls, the provincial government had decided that Smiths Falls didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a dialysis unit,â&#x20AC;? said Gerry Huddleston, executive director, Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor Foundation. More in tune with the needs of its community and the surround-

Falls police chief. He was also by all accounts the perfect gentleman with a great sense of humour. According to Hardy, Mr. Rabb was sometimes accused of being stubborn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I prefer to call him â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;consistentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. He simply got things done,â&#x20AC;? said Hardy. Perhaps an example of that was just two weeks before Remembrance Day 2013. Mr. Rabb, not in the best of health, took it upon himself to spruce up the entrance to the Legion ahead of the big day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He fixed all the flower boxes in front of the Legion. He bought all the wood and paid for it, and replaced it all himself,â&#x20AC;? said Levere. Mr. Rabb served in the Canadian Militia from 1948 to 1950, and was in the regular armed forces from 1950 to â&#x20AC;&#x2122;52 and again in the Continued on page SF2

ing area it served, the hospital knew otherwise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So the first call I made was to Jack Rabb at the Legion. He and a couple of colleagues started a drive that included presentations to every Legion in the Ottawa Valley. We got donations from every one of them and raised $1 million,â&#x20AC;? Huddleston said. Today there is a dialysis unit in Smiths Falls that serves local residents and many people from Rideau Lakes, Montague, Merrickville and surrounding municipalities and Huddleston credits Mr. Rabbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership and connections with that triumph. And that was all in addition to his tireless efforts at building up the Smiths Falls Legion, Branch 95. Yet he still found time to do those little things that later mean so much. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I came to this town in 1990 as police chief, he was the first person to show up at my door and introduce himself. He was president of the Legion then, and came to tell me that I had his support. We became good friends,â&#x20AC;? said Larry Hardy, former Smiths

Canadian Militia from 1953 to 1969. He worked with Correctional Services Canada after leaving the military and had joined the Legion by 1954. “He’s been one of those individuals who has been a shining example in his commitment to set a high standard for all of us,” said Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples.

Last week the town paid its respects by lowering the town flags to half-mast until after his funeral. “It’s just to honour him and show our respect,” said Staples. “I’ve been deeply influenced by Jack Rabb and the standard he set – the fine example he set for community involvement.” In 1985 he was recognized as Smiths

Falls Citizen of the Year. In 1998 he was awarded the Palm Leaf for continuous and meritorious service. It is the highest accolade the Legion can bestow on a member. It took him by surprise, according to Levere. “He never looked for the accolades, he was in it for the common good of the community,” said Seward. Mr. Rabb served the Legion in just about every executive and non-executive capacity he could. He was also deputy zone commander from 1991 to 1993. “To me, Jack was the Legion,” said Ralph McElroy. “If you talk to anyone in town they would say, ‘Oh yes Jack

Rabb of the Legion,’ because he lived and breathed the Legion.” His passing has left a huge hole in this community, that may never again be filled, and nothing that can be written about him can come close to honouring this extraordinary man, if what his friends and acquaintances say is true. “Jack represented everything that was best about a community. When someone dies you stop and reflect and with Jack you find this weight that pushes down on you, when you realize how significant he is in this community,” said Seward. Besides his wife, Mr. Rabb is

survived by children Scott of Montreal and Paul (Tammy) of Orleans. He will be sadly missed by Sharon Musgrave, his grandchildren Caitlin, Leesalee, Tyler, Brandon and Victoria. Rabb was the brother of the late Eva Sinclair and Marjorie Graham. He will be fondly remembered by his extended family, many Legion Comrades and good friends. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Blair and Son Funeral Home in Smiths Falls, on Friday, Nov. 16. Donations Legion Branch 95 (Elevator Fund) or the University of Ottawa Heart Institute are appreciated by the family.

For many years, Jack Rabb escorted the Silver Cross mother to the cenotaph during Remembrance Day ceremonies in Smiths Falls.

News -A single-vehicle collision near Rideau Ferry late Thursday night has claimed the life of a Lombardy man. According to the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), officers from the Rideau Lakes Detachment were called to the scene along Rideau Ferry Road in Rideau Lakes Township at around 11:30 p.m. A single vehicle was travelling north on Rideau Ferry Road when the driver failed to negotiate a turn, lost control and rolled in the ditch.

LET IT ROT!

Police report the driver and lone occupant, Timothy Whitney, 34, of Lombardy was ejected from his vehicle where he was located deceased. The road was closed for about six hours as the OPP’s Technical Traffic Collision Investigators and Rideau Lakes officers conducted their investigation. A post mortem is scheduled for today (Nov. 15) in Ottawa. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor. The investigation is continuing.

Council discusses rail, heritage, police and pound services at committee hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - At the regular committee of the whole meeting held on Tuesday, Nov. 12 there were two delegations at the start of the meeting. Josef Potvin from Mobility OttawaOutaouais: Systems and Enterprises better known as mOOse gave an update on the company business plan and current status. The second delegation was a presentation by Anne Shropshire, in her capacity as Chair of the Smiths Falls Municipal Heritage Committee. mOOse delegation Potvin explained the Moose is a private sector endeavor that has a strong relationship with public sector entities. Their business model he explained is very well define and is based on the idea of real property value optimization within a half kilometer radius each point of access to the railway service. According to Potvin, the increase in the asset and property value within that radius runs between five and 40 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This impact would allow us to design a set of commercial agreements with self-selected investors who are willing to devote a fixed proportion of the marginal increase in realized value for the sustainable financing of the railway system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each station individually, as well as the railway system in its entirety, would be financed wholly by these investors in real property,â&#x20AC;? said Potvin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This business model has not been used anywhere else in the world, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very similar to a model that municipalities use today. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real value optimization project done through the whole

metropolitan regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transit.â&#x20AC;? Moose, he said, is in conversation with Via, CN, CP, Jenessee Fright etc as they will be using the various companiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tracks to realize a commuter transit system across 400 km of existing track in and around Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Capital Region. Right now Potvin says the biggest hurdle is the Prince of Wales bridge in Ottawa. The bridge connects Ottawa and Gatineau over the Ottawa River, just north of Bayview station, and while m00se is not asking for any monetary support from any municipality now or later, they would appreciate the various municipalities adding their voices in support of re-opening that bridge for rail service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without the bridge our business model wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work at all,â&#x20AC;? said Potvin. Heritage Committee delegation At the opening of her presentation to council Ann Shropshire asked that council add three properties to a list of properties of heritage interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two of the three property owners are present and support being included on the Town of Smiths Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Municipal Register of Heritage Properties as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Properties of Cultural Heritage Value or Interestâ&#x20AC;? said Shropshire. According to Shropshire a property can be included on the register if council believes that it has cultural heritage value or interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The main reason to list a property on the Register is to extend the length of time for a demolition permit to be issued from 10 days to 60 days,â&#x20AC;? she said, explaining that the delay simply gives council time to evaluate the heritage

value of the property in question, and in the meantime does not in any way hamper a property owner ability to renovate or make alterations to the property. Shropshireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation received a luke warm reception from councillors Ken Graham and Jay Brennan but was supported by councillors Dawn Quinn, Chris Cummings and Lorraine Allen.

Mills, Tay Valley, Perth, Lanark Highlands and Montague share in the capital cost to build the facility and also share in its administrative costs on a weighted assessment for each municipality. Under that scenario, Montague would be asking Smiths Falls for a capital cost investment of $23,000 towards building the pound, and nearly $16,000 a year in operational costs for a period of 10 years. Council was skeptical of the numbers put forward by Montague. Coun. Ken Graham pointed out that $100,000 doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t build much these days and he also questioned the proposed $56,000 in operating costs for which Smiths Falls would be expected to contribute $16,000 annually for the first 10 years of operation. Smiths Falls has already entered into an agreement with LAWS for close to $25,000 for animal pound services to Dec. 31, 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to see the rationale, and $100,000 for a building doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound realistic,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Graham.

Police services report Staff tabled a report on the costs of the New Police Services Building at 7 Hershey Dr. The final bill for the building came in at $2.6 million about $250,000 more than initially estimated. The cost overruns were unavoidable given the requirement of a building of that nature. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that there were a lot of change orders and I want to compliment Chief (Robert) Dowdall on his management of the process. But I think we need to look at our processes, I think there were some mistakes made along the way that can be avoided in the future,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Shawn Pankow. CAO Steve Fournier agreed that there may have been some hiccups in Murphy Park the process but was hesitant to suggest Quinn brought up her concerns over that these led directly to the cost over- security at Murphy Park. run, without further investigation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The newly refurbished building has broken windows and broken lights,â&#x20AC;?

Young heroes are recognized by Smiths Falls council after water rescue By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

One-Match Stem Cell At the Sunday hockey game between the Smiths Falls Bears and the Brockville Braves more than 50 young men participated in the one-match stem cell program, and submitted a cheek swab. According to Staples, the program has grown by 1,600 new potential donors as a result of the Makenzie Curan campaign. In addition Curan’s match has been found and she will be undergoing the bone transplant this week.

Two presentations followed the mayors announcements: The first presentation was made by Jeff Mills of Mills Community Support and was largely an update of what the organization has been doing in the community and what it hopes to accomplish. For more information visit www.themills. on.ca. The second presentation was by Bob Cheetham, the former director of economic development. In his presentation Cheetham went over the role of economic development, where the town was in 2010 when he first joined the staff, the issues that had been identified at that time, how they have been dealt with and what still needs to be done for Smiths Falls to fully realize it’s ‘sensational’ slogan. Coun. Jay Brennan, congratulated Smiths Falls resident Sandra Burson, on her efforts in organizing the annual ALS Walk which raised more than $34,000 for ALS this year.

They passed a bylaw to allow an exemption to the town’s procurement bylaw. The exemption allows Ted Joynt, Water Wastewater Operations Superintendent, to single source a back-up coagulant pump from a specific supplier.

News – The Nov. 18 regular meeting of council started with the recognition of two local heroes. Deputy Police Chief Mark MacGillivray thanked Kyle Naylor and Janik Malorny for their quick actions and bravery in saving a young man who had fallen off the Abbott Street bridge on Aug. 8. The young men had been in the park, and were just leaving when they noticed two youth climbing along the bridge railing. A few seconds later they heard a splash and one of the youth yelling. They turned back and saw one young man in the water face down. Malorny told Naylor to call 911 while he jumped into the water and pulled the youth to shore. “They got him into a recovery position and kept him in that position until the police arrived, and I dare say if they hadn’t done that and called 911 the young man would not be here today,” said MacGillivray. The two young men were awarded certificates of recognition and appreciation for their bravery and quick thinking by the Smiths

Falls Police Services and the Town of Smiths Falls. Municipal Partnership Fund Last week the province announced that the municipal partnership funds would be released before the end of the year and while most municipalities have seen a large decline in their allocation, Smiths Falls will receive $9,200, slightly less but not significantly lower.

Smiths Falls needs help attracting new doctors to town hsorour@perfprint.ca

News- When the town entered into a partnership agreement with the Rural Ontario Institute (ROI) back in September, the goal was to create a physician recruitment and retention strategy. Now as the project nears its conclusion, residents and health care workers in the community are invited to take part in an Action Planning workshop on Nov. 27 and 28. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get an idea of the needs in the community, both actual and anecdotal,â&#x20AC;? said Mellissa Hillier, manager Smiths Falls and District Chamber of Commerce.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;...Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve extended an invitation to the young doctors to come and see the hospital, the turn-key facilities, and explore the town and meet the mayor.â&#x20AC;? BOB CHEETHAM DIRECTOR OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

The workshop will run from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 27 and all day Thursday, Nov. 28 (8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and will be hosted at the Smiths Falls Legion on Main Street East. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an evening and a whole day, and we recognize that those hours could be a game breaker, but the idea is to put together a community strategy - a value added action plan to physician attraction,â&#x20AC;? said David Lawrence, manager of the Royal Bank and chair of the physician recruitment task force. Although the workshop is free and refreshments and a lunch will be provided, anyone interested is required to register at the town office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really all started two years ago, when Dr. Murty passed away and we were suddenly faced

with 7,800 orphan patients,â&#x20AC;? said Bob Cheetham, outgoing director of economic development. At that time all the stakeholder groups including the hospital, the health unit and the Smiths Falls Family Health Centre, came together to discuss how to deal with the situation. Out of that a physician recruitment task force was formed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a voluntary group of concerned individuals, I was the representative for the town,â&#x20AC;? said Cheetham. One of the pivotal findings at that point was that having a turnkey facility for arriving doctors was critical. Much fundraising, grants and donations later and the Cornelia Court facility was established and capable of accommodating up to 10 doctors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;New doctors can literally walk in with a stethoscope and work,â&#x20AC;? said Cheetham, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and they have a team of experienced health professionals around them, nurses and administrative staff and an immediate roster of patients.â&#x20AC;? That was the first such facility but now there is a second thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the final stages of completion the Heritage Medical Clinic at the Gallipeau Centre where three new doctors will be able to walk in and get cracking. Through the ROI partnership the town has been able to actively reach out to soon-to-graduate doctors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I visited five universities in early October and met with about 126 family physicians, and provided materials to 61 who will be graduating in June or July 2014,â&#x20AC;? said Cheetham. What Cheetham found was that a lot of the young doctors are looking to do locums rather than jump straight into private practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve extended an invitation to the young doctors to come and see the hospital, the turn-key facilities, and explore the town and meet the mayor,â&#x20AC;? said Cheetham. The beauty of this workshop according to Lawrence is that once a strategy has been created it can be applied to a lot of other issues as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once we have it nailed down, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to take that strategy and apply it to other issues the

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO-November 15, 1913 Friday night was a night of joy and revelry with the Rideau Fire Company. Their big annual ball came off that night with the greatest of success. The guests numbered over three hundred and the crush at times was great but it only seemed to add zest to the pleasure of the occasion. The different committees who had charge of the dance worked hard and faithfully for its success and ought to feel gratified. No detail was overlooked and the whole programme went off without a hitch. The whole affair went off smoothly and to the satisfaction of all their patrons, who declare it to be one of the best balls they ever attend.

50 YEARS AGO - November 28, 1963 Mayor Arnold Gough, acclaimed to his fourth term as Mayor of Smiths Falls, predicted that 1964 will be an outstanding year for the town and for its ratepayers. Speaking at the annual Civic Night meeting at the Legion Hall on Monday evening, His Worship said he intends to instruct his new Public Works Chairman to include in his 1964 budget sufficient money to continue his sidewalk replacement programme. “Many new sidewalks will be built next year,” he said, “roads will be repaired, there is bridge work to be done and negotiations will be seriously underway to eliminate the North End subway menace.”

25 YEARS AGO - November 23, 1988 The local United Way campaign seemed to be in trouble, but now looks as if the $75,000 goal will be met. Although the campaign has officially ended, mail roll donations and pay roll deductions are still being received. “We’re just over $70,000 now,” said Lanark County United Way Chairman Dennis Staples, and added, “We’re going to keep our books open until the end of November.” Approximately one third of the money collected was raised by provincial employees across the county. Lynn Stoliker, chairman of the Ontario government employees campaign praised those who donated both time and money saying, “If it wasn’t for their help and their awareness, the $24,000 wouldn’t have been achieved.” More precisely, they raised a total of $24,413.65 mainly through payroll deductions and other internal campaigns.

Communities unite to give hope to injured hockey player Opinion – The rally for a young man who was severely injured in a hockey game in Perth on Oct. 27 had overwhelming results. The community has raised more than $48,000 – and it was climbing towards the $50,000 mark at the time of publication – to give to Brett Nugent and his family to help in his recovery. Nugent suffered a severe spinal injury that has left him, according to television reports, without much feeling from his chest down. He remains in the Ottawa Civic Hospital. Michael McLean, owner and head coach of the Blue Wings junior B hockey team, was quick to gather the troops after that game. He and his team, both behind the scenes and on the ice, rallied to pull together a huge fundraiser that raised the roof of the old – but newly-renovated – Perth barn on Friday night. Some 600 fans filled the seats. They wore #15 stickers (Nugent’s number) and waved banners depicting a thumbs-up logo with his

10 YEARS AGO - November 26, 2003 Municipalities including Smiths Falls have washed their hands of an issue, saying it’s a provincial matter. Now, the province is doing something about it. In a speech to the Ontario Legislative Assembly last Thursday, Dalton McGuinty’s Liberal government announced its plans to introduce a province-wide ban on smoking in all public places and work places within the next three years. Smiths Falls council rejected a Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit attempt to introduce such a ban back in 2001. At that time, most councillors conceded such a move would have detrimental effect on the local hospitality industry. By introducing a ban, local bar owners also argued successfully that patrons who smoke would simply head to the neighbouring communities that would not be faced with such regulations. Compiled by Leanne Jarrett

LAURIE WEIR Weir View number, in red ink. There was a sea of red and white in the stands. It was heart warming to see, as was the video that paid homage to Nugent and his love of sports, especially hockey, fishing and his friends and family. The Blue Wings fundraising committee enticed donations from folks at the door by offering free admission. They gave what they could – some a few bucks, others a few thousand bucks. There were T-shirt sales, and a 50/50 draw. There was even a website built for the fundraising campaign. The Blue Wings each purchased their own #15 T-shirts for the cause, something that McLean said he didn’t have to encourage, as they were all eager to help in any way they could.

McLean said that he has never been part of a fundraising activity before that has raised this much money. “It’s not about the money,” he said. “It doesn’t change things (for Brett and his long road to recovery), but you take action and try and help any way you can. Brett Nugent has a long recovery in front of him and I know there is financial pressure that comes along with it… things that aren’t covered for him so with this fundraising, if that just takes a little bit of pressure off the family then we’re really happy to be a part of it.” McLean added that this community effort was also a great life lesson for the players. “There’s more to hockey than what you learn on the ice,” he said. This team has a lot of heart, as does this town, and as one fan on the Brett Nugent Facebook fan page says: “That’s the good heart of the Ottawa Valley.”

Downtown dollars better than any gift certificate By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - Working hard to keep dollars in the community the Downtown Business Association is introducing Downtown Dollars. These are essentially cash that can only be spent in the community at participating services or retail outlets. “Downtown Dollars will be given as the prizes for the DBA Christmas promotion Passport to Win. Three prizes, $500, $300 and $200, will be awarded following the draw and they’ll be given in Downtown Dollars,” said Amy Hogue, DBA coordinator. This means that people spend money downtown to enter in the draw and then spend more money downtown as their prize.

“Downtown Dollars will be given as prizes...” AMY HOGUE DBA COORDINATOR SMITHS FALLS

“The biggest thing is that it’s a good program, that encourages people to shop downtown and can be used at any business within the downtown area, whether retail or service and I’m happy to participate,” said Rob Rodine, chiropractor. Anyone can purchase Downtown Dollars by contacting the DBA at dba@smithsfalls.ca or at 613-283-4124 ext. 1114. The beauty of the program is that these are dollars that can be spent anywhere in the downtown core. “Downtown Dollars come in $10 increments so if you purchase something that costs

BRING HOME A DEAL

$8, you will be given back the change,” said Hogue. The dollars were designed and purchased from Staples here in town, a store whose staff worked closely with the DBA to create them, taking Staples a little out of their comfort zone. The idea according to Hogue came from the Guelph Downtown Business Association which also uses these certificates, unlike many BIAs who use gift certificates, these ones are cheques and are used like cash, making it easier for business owners to deposit them. “We have been working on the Downtown Dollars program for a year now, the bank that we are using is the Toronto Dominion Bank, downtown,” said Hogue. It’s been a long process getting the program up and running but it’s been worth it with the promotion is finally here just in time for Christmas. The program of course falls neatly in line with the DBA’s mandate because by sponsoring the program the DBA ensures that the money is is spent among its members. “For me it’s business and I think it’s positive because it encourages people to spend their money downtown, so it’s good,” said Maria Christodoulou, proprietor Coffee Culture. According to Hogue the Downtown Dollars make the perfect gift for the community-conscious shopper or business owner, because by giving a Downtown Dollar as a gift the presenter ensures the money will be spent downtown while giving the recipient a wide variety of options in how it will be spent. “For instance, instead of giving a gift certificate or gift card to a single store, a Downtown Dollar can be redeemed on everything from coffee, lunch, bicycles to clothing to furniture to an appointment at your chiropractor,” said Hogue.

Community - Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign raised $5,533 for the Smiths Falls Community Hospital Foundation this year. Since 2005, Tim Hortons has donated more than $45,000 to the foundation helping them purchase medical equipment for the hospital.

Arts – Snow White that is!! Smiths Falls Community Theatre’s third traditional British Pantomime opens on Dec. 5 with a brilliant cast and a wonderful script from England’s Ben Crocker who has had a passion for this art form since he was 3! The story is still all about our dear Snow White (Paris Healey) and her run from the Evil Queen (Sheila Jasiak), her encounter with two no-gooders, Bogworth (Slade Stoodley) and Stinkworth (Garrett Pipher) under orders to take her heart back to the Queen and of course the 7 dwarves. They are being played by Nathaniel and Sam Flinn, Daniel and Samuel Chatwood, Charles Fox-Doran, Jeremy Jasiak and Grace Lee. Their names will be a little different than you remember but they still do their best to take care of their dear Snow White. The funny, fast-paced script introduces some new and pretty crazy characters that will keep you laughing, booing and singing along!! The fun starts at the Station Theatre, 53 Victoria Ave. in

There are plenty to choose from. leash skills. Our Lily can be quite the puller. A This week’s featured dog happy dog, she’s moderately vocal Lily with a moderate to high energy levThe look in her eyes can mean el and good off-leash potential. All only one thing: Lily wants you Lily needs now to help her reach her along for the ride. And since this full potential is a loving “life coach” sturdy little Dalmation mix loves to and a loving forever home.

This Week’s Pets

This week’s featured cats Holly and Ivy These two brown tabby sisters are striking with their markings. Because they have been raised together, they must be adopted as a pair to ensure their comfort. Being five-and-a-half-years-old, the shelter is not an environment that they are familiar with and they tend to

run and explore, she can very easily leave you behind in the dust. Affectionate, with a sweet nature to match her sweet face, she enjoys the company of most dogs, and, although a bit shy at first meeting, once she’s warmed up to you, she’ll happily make you her new best (human) friend. She knows some of her basic commands, but they still require some work – particularly her

hide when visitors come to give ear scratches and belly rubs. Out of sight, out of mind and therefore they remain at the shelter. Holly and Ivy are waiting for a

home that understands their skittish nature and has the patience to instill trust. Please come to the shelter to meet these beauties, they are there... they are likely just hiding! Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) is located on Glenview Road, just off Highway 43, about 2 kilometres west of Smiths Falls. The shelter is open Monday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Write to us at P.O. Box 156, Smiths Falls, ON K7A 4T1 or contact us at 613-283-9308, or email at shelter@lanarkanimals.ca. Visit our website at www.lanarkanimals.ca. Please also check out www.AdoptADog.TV featuring some of our canines up for adoption. If you have lost a dog or cat please check our website or phone or visit the shelter. If you have found a dog or cat please visit our website to find the number of your local animal control officer.

News – Ottawa is the home of startups. The most recent is called the African Bronze Honey Project, a fun and powerful social enterprise. Artistentrepreneurs Paul Whitney and Liz Connell have partnered with ZambianCanadian Dan Ball in creating a project that gives from Africa to Canada…and then back to Africa. Ball has trained more than 6,000 beekeepers in the remotest part of Zambia, in a massive forest at the headwaters of the Zambezi River. Together they produce the most amazing tasting, 100 per cent organic, forest honey. A year ago while visiting Ottawa, Ball posed a question, “Would you help us market our honey into Canada?” Whitney and Connell started thinking outside the box and partnered with schools and not-for-profit organizations to sell the honey and share the profits. “Every year these forest beekeepers produce over 800 tonnes of the most amazing honey that you’ve ever tasted… and trust me, you’ve never tasted anything like it. Complex, beautifully dark and very compelling… it’s Africa in a bottle,” laughs Whitney. He should know, he spent eight years “trying to figure out how things work” in southern Africa. “This project is so simple and there is not a penny of development aid involved. This is a world-class, epicurean food, produced in one of the least developed places on the planet, processed, packaged and marketed creatively and inexpensively with half the profit going back to assisting Canadian non-for-profit projects and training

more beekeepers in Africa. It’s a win, win, win project!” he said. Last week, the African Bronze Honey Project visited the Stewart Public School in Perth, Ontario where 350 students went on a virtual tour of rural Africa led by Zambian-Canadian Zvondai Muchenje, our Schools Project facilitator, a graduate of Carleton’s International Development Program. “I am a marimba player and drummer too, the kids love it when we sing and talk about making honey in the forest. A lot of the money these beekeepers make… it’s used to pay for school fees for their kids. So, it’s a great feeling when an entire school of Canadian kids all get excited about helping Zambian kids and their families start their own business…,” Muchenje said. “I worked in international development for years… this is what we were supposed to be doing. Now, here’s a project that is doing it!” Whitney points out that people find this honey really interesting when they discover that it’s produced by African ‘killer bees’. “They get a bad rap,” he said. “They don’t really kill people, except in Hollywood… however they are very aggressive to other bees… and they do make ‘killer honey’!” The full story and the honey is available at africanbronzehoney.com. Stewart School in Perth will also be selling the honey up until Dec. 15 as a fundraising project. The Gorgeous Grannies of North Gower will be offering it as well at their own upcoming fundraising events in Osgoode.

I hope we have money for vacation. I hope it’s covered by insurance.

I hope they vote me prom queen.

I hope it comes in my size.

I hope they make it to the playoffs.

Storytelling, Christmas stories and thinking about summer at Full Circle Theatre Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s BarnDoor Productions is getting the jump on the season, while celebrating the season this next month at Full Circle Theatre (FCT). Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m., 2 women productions bring the first event of their 2013-2014 season to FCT. A Dubious Blessing: Two Old Women Speak features storyteller Marta Singh telling of a personal journey into her past and herself, through the lens of a Russian folk tale and an Argentinian story. Singh is the creator of Landscapes of Silence, featured in 2 women productions first season. Tickets for the event are at www.ticketsplease.ca. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been along time since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve laughed so hard,â&#x20AC;? commented one patron after BarnDoor Productionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (BDP) hilarious The 39 Steps in October. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to bet that will be topped when BDP returns to the stage Dec. 6 through 15 with a show that surely encapsulates the most ho-ho-holiday spirit of all. Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some) is a 90-minute tour of, well, every Christmas story ever told. Veteran BDP performers David Bird, Joe Laxton and David Jacklin will keep you laughing and howling while they tell you every story from Rudolph (in a non-copyright infringing

version) to The Grinch to Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A Wonderful Life and, yes, even A Christmas Carol. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silly and nonsensical and a great way to start the holiday season. Tickets info is at www. barndoorproductions.ca. BarnDoor is also looking well beyond the holiday season this month, making some announcements about the summer of 2014. Next summer will see Full Circle Theatre return to the kind of summer entertainment that BarnDoor does best: highenergy, high-entertainment, unpredictable and unusual. First up will Gaslight (also known as Angel Street), the seminal mystery thriller of all time, running in June. For July, BDP revives one of its most popular productions ever, The Lure of the Lights (Or Why Women Sin), an original musical built around a 1903 shocker. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of BarnDoorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marks Brothers Melodrama series, taken from plays in the archives of Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous Marks Brothers Dramatic Company from the 1900s and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tale of gangsters and fallen women and the underworld of New York City in 1910, all set to great songs from the time. Then in August, William Wycherlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1673 comedy The Country Wife will continue BDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long tradition of summer classic theatre. The Country Wife was so risque

in its time that it was banned for more than 200 years! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun, funny and still a little bit shocking, 340 years later. Of course, there will be plenty to see in between

then and now at FCT, from musical concerts, more story-telling, some racy, adults-only comedy in February, one of the most honoured and evocative plays of the

last decade in April, student theatre, cinema and much more. You can get all the details at www.barndoorproductions.ca. While the summer sun seems a

long way away, the temperature is already climbing at Full Circle Theatre. Submitted by BarnDoor Productions.

BURNS - In loving memory of our parents, grandparents and great grandparents, Harry E. Burns, passed away October 9, 1992 and Elsie M. Burns passed away November 25, 1992. There is a bridge of memory From here to Heaven above, That keeps you very close to us It’s called the bridge of love. As time goes by without you And days turn into years, They hold a million memories And a thousand silent tears. To us you were so special What more is there to say, Except to wish with all our hearts That you were here today. So whatever we do Wherever we go, Today, tomorrow Our whole life through, We will always love and cherish you. Always remembered your family, grandchildren and great grandchildren

HOBBS - Keith Hobbs who left us for Heaven November 20th, 2009. I found a penny today just laying on the ground, But it’s not just a penny this little coin I’ve found. “Found” pennies come from Heaven That’s what my Grandpa told me, He said angels toss them down Oh, how I loved that story. He said when an angel misses you, They toss a penny down Sometimes just to cheer you up, Make a smile out of your frown. So don’t pass by that penny When you’re feeling blue, It may be a penny from Heaven That an angel tossed to you. We’re still ‘keeping the change’ Dad and picking up pennies makes us smile. Always in our thoughts Your loving wife Margaret and your children & grandkids Rick & Chris, Henry & Wendy, Patsy & Murray and families

VIRTUE, Mae Marie In loving memory of our dear sister, who passed away November 22, 1988. If we listen really close In the silence of the night We hear your voice to comfort us And say that you are all right. But it’s often hard to understand Why certain things must be And the reasons why they happen Are so often hard to see. But we all find comfort in just knowing That God is always there To keep the one we love so much Forever in His care. Lovingly remembered by your sisters Betty, Emma, Edith, Esther, Maxine and Families

nault Quatre Chevaux of the 1950s to 1970s. “The Morris was popular in many countries previously under British occupation in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia until the German and, later, Japanese cars took over. In my childhood in Haifa, Israel, two neighbour ladies from Rhodesia (Zimbabwe now) who immigrated to Israel, came with a new Morris Minor station wagon (also with wooden covered frame outside), by driving loaded with baggage from Salisbury (Harare) to Mombasa in Kenya (2,700 km), all on East African roads and no roads and then by ship to Eliat on the Red Sea. They made it safe and sound!” Virtually identical to the 1960 model driven by the two women from East Africa is the 1961 Morris Minor station wagon seen here and owned by Danny Bateman of Leamington, Ontario, in the 1960s. Note the curved one-piece windshield. Whenever Danny tried to pass a big truck on Hwy. 401, he had to keep the gas pedal to the floor and often got only as far as the truck driver’s door before having to fall back for lack of power. Mike Filey, author of many books on the history of Toronto, reports that his first car was a 1949 Morris Minor “with one option, a heater, the fan of which was under the passenger’s seat. Turn the device on and the person sitting beside me would rise two or three inches. The car also had mechanical brakes, a set of flipper directional signals, and was constantly infused with a not totally objectionable (at least not to me) aroma of burning oil.” The car was maroon. Mike mixed several cans of paint to achieve a unique turquoise colour which he applied, starting at the front. He ran out of paint before reaching the rear and pushed the paint the rest of the way by hand. If the owner of the 1952 Morris Minor station wagon seen recently in Ottawa is reading this, please get in touch. We would love to feature your car in this column! I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

Lombardy Agricultural Society hosts Gender Illusions fundraiser Saturday By EMILIE MUST

Community - On Saturday, Nov. 23, the Lombardy Agricultural Society will be hosting the Gender Illusions show in support of the Portland food bank and the fair grounds in association with the Build A Mountain of Food drive. It will be at the Lombardy fairgrounds at 6 Kelly Road. Gender Illusions is a comedy music troupe of female impersonators with members from all across Canada. They are known to give back to the community and do shows for fundraisers. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show will begin at 8 p.m. The event will include a light buffet at intermission, door prizes, a photo booth, and special door prizes for anyone who brings a donation. Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased in Smiths Falls at Vickie’s, Echo Tours & Travel, Falls Travel & Cruise Centre,

The Loft Store at Davidson Courtyard, or by calling Louise Blair at 613-207-0424. “The money’s not there anymore so we have to rely on fundraisers and it’s time to try something new and different,” said Louise Blair, the organizer of the event. The Portland Food Bank has helped families in need for the last 28 years, providing food once every two weeks to people in six townships. It started out as two shelves at the Rideau Lakes Township office in Chantry before it moved to Portland. Today, the Portland Food Bank assists eight to 10 families twice a month. Christmas hampers are also available to families in need, having given out 17 of them last year. This cannot be done without the support and help of the local community. “In order to keep our program running we need to fundraise because the Lombardy Fairgrounds

are not municipally supported,” said Lee Lamping, general manager of the Lombardy Fairgrounds when asked about the importance of fundraising within the community. The Lombardy Agricultural Society is in the middle of fundraising for new washrooms needed to meet the Ontario Accessibility Act coming into effect in 2016. Since the hall was build more than 30 years ago, wheelchairs and baby strollers are built larger than can be accommodated at this time. The total cost for renovations will be $10,000 to $15,000. The Lombardy Agricultural Society is owned by fair board members and directors, not by Rideau Lakes Township. Yearly membership costs are $10. This is the first time the Lombardy Agricultural Society has put on such a different fundraiser compared to its usual dinner events.

Enjoy first ever night parade in Smiths Falls on Saturday By EMILIE MUST

Community - The annual Santa Claus parade will be this Saturday, Nov. 23, but this year it will be a night parade starting at 5:30 p.m. Float judging will start at 4 p.m. in the Youth Arena parking lot, where the parade will begin. Last year, more than 100 letters were sent out to local businesses asking if a day or night parade was preferred. There was an overwhelming response to have a night parade; only three businesses wanted the parade to be during the day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a larger number of floats than ever before, entered into the parade simply because it was going to be at night,â&#x20AC;? said Carol Levere, president of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 95. The Jr. A Bears will hand out bags of candy to children and the firefighters will be collecting money for the food bank along the route. The parade will finish at Lower Reach Park at the Kinsmen Club building where free hot chocolate, hot dogs, and music can

be enjoyed. The Smiths Falls Atom B Rep team will be walking alongside the Coffee Culture float to receive donations to the food bank. The team is made up of boys ages nine and 10 years. Chimo Elementary School along with the Champions for Kids and Early Act Program club and cheerleaders will be marching along with the Early Act Program Club collecting donations for disadvantaged kids. The club does random acts of kindness. Bring your change to donate to children holding buckets during the parade. The Early Act program club chooses to do random acts of kindness and chose to work with the Upper Canada Champions for Kids. They give money so disadvantaged children can enjoy after-school programs such as the arts, music, sports. Sunday morning at 9 a.m., the Royal Canadian Legion is having a free pancake breakfast for children where they can meet Santa. A $5 fee is required for parents to join them. R0011948547_0314

Project Change Installation of the inverter clusters and associated transformers is complete and due to a number of design and construction factors, some of the inverters and transformers were constructed more than 10 m from the location coordinates identi¿ed in the Renewable Energy Approval (REA) (No. 1157-P5RAS). As a result, Aurora Smiths Falls 6 Limited Partnership has submitted an application to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) to amend the REA to revise the location coordinates of the equipment. The MOE is currently reviewing this application. The revised Noise Assessment Study has con¿rmed that the sound levels at all points of reception remain the same or have decreased for the Project.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open season for SFDCI basketball that starts with exhibition win By EMILIE MUST

Sports - Another season for the Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute boys basketball program is back in action. The senior boys basketball team had its first tournament at home last weekend. They invited Albert College from Belleville and the RedHawks won by a landslide 62-20. The starting five are Devin Wilkinson, Liam Nesbitt, Turner Onion, Garrett Closs and Dylan Abbass. The team is ready to tackle their upcoming games this season with a tournament in Kingston this weekend. The programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success comes from its consistency. In the last nine seasons, the teams have competed in more than 80 per cent of LCIAA championships and have earned 15 league titles. The senior boys team won gold at OFSAA in 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are working hard to become the best basketball team we can be. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see where that takes us,â&#x20AC;? said coach Todd Spencer when asked about the upcoming senior boys basketball season. There are many former SFDCI basketball players who have gone on to play at the post-secondary level. Currently Vince Dufort is in his third season on the McGill University team, Laura Kayser is in her second season at Brock University, and Curtis Onion played one season at Loyalist College.

Despite a determined offence that kept penetrating the Smiths Falls and District Collegiate Institute zone throughout the game on Friday, Nov. 15, Bellevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Albert College came up against a slightly more determined defence in the RedHawk zone. Bellevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very expressive play was not enough to shut down better scoring by SFDCI, despite attempted shots on the basket, ending up in a RedHawks victory, 62-20 over the visiting boys from Belleville. Albert College is Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest coeducational boarding and day school, founded in 1854.

Dominion Tankard celebration being held for volunteers and sponsors at the Smiths Falls Golf and Country Club on Feb. 15. Agnes McVeety who is cochairing with Paul Howard the host committee for the championship curling event is looking forward to the musical entertainment that week. In addition to the nightly entertainment at the Lockmasterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s House, the local area will also be well represented in the singing of O Canada before each of the draws. Service clubs such as Smiths Falls Legion Branch 95, the Kinsmen and Rotary clubs

will all be providing singers for the national anthem, as will the Rosedale Singers, Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute and other schools in the region. More individual singers or vocal groups, however, are needed for the singing of O Canada. Likewise, additional performers are being sought for the talent night. Those interested in participating in either are asked to contact Frizell at 613-283-5507. Visit www.thedominiontankard2014.ca or contacting 613812-3372. Submitted by the Town of Smiths Falls
