Interval House plans remembrance vigil Dec. 6 in Smiths Falls By EMILIE MUST

executive director Erin Lee-Todd stated in a press release. “It is also important to remember and honour all murdered women, including the over 600 missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Canada.� Smiths Falls mayor Dennis Staples will be on hand to open the vigil and refreshments will be served. The vigil serves as part of an initiative entitled 16 Days of Activism, which began on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on Nov. 25, created by the United Nations.

Post-secondary students handed out pamphlets around the communities of Perth, Carleton Place, Smiths Falls, and Almonte listing the 25 ways to end violence against women. They are all do able actions including spreading awareness to 25 people, donating $25 to your local shelter, and tweet 25 times about the issue. “It’s important to support the younger generation to create action and political movement. Strive to challenge you to do something to end violence against women,� said Brianne Luckasavitch, public education coordinator

with LCIH. LCIH is spearheading this campaign because it directly affects their clientele. Women and children they serve are affected by violence and they want people to know this is still a serious problem. “We want people to know that violence against women is still a pandemic,� Luckasavitch stated. She said it’s important to end dating violence and to spread awareness because, “most people think that it only happens to a certain type of woman and child, but it can happen to anybody. Nobody is immune to violence.�

Community – Show your support of ending violence against women Friday, Dec. 6 in Kinsmen Park at the Smiths Falls Town Hall from 2:45 to 4 p.m. The National Day of Remembrance Vigil, run by the Lanark County Interval House (LCIH) will commemorate the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre. Dec. 6 in Canada is the National Day of Action and Remembrance on Violence Against Women. It is also the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre of 14 women at the L’Ecole Polytechnique

in 1989 and was established to honour those women and others around the country who have been killed as a result of violence. The names of the women who were killed will be read during the vigil and will support the women and children from Lanark County who are affected by violence and murder. To show ongoing support of ending violence attendees are to wear purple. “It’s critical that we remember the 14 women whose lives were taken 24 years ago and that we take action to end violence against women,� LCIH

Life4Dew fundraiser Dec. 14...a plea for help By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Community – Gather a group of friends and attend the Dec. 14 fundraiser in aid of Dew Rotor, a Clayton woman suffering from pulmonary fibrosis. Thirty-three-year-old Dew is permanently hospitalized at the Toronto General Hospital (TGH) until she receives a lifesaving double-lung transplant. Running 7 p.m. to 12 a.m., the fundraiser takes place in the upstairs hall of the Carleton Place arena (Neelin Street Community Centre), located at 75 Neelin St. There will be live entertainment, raffles, a silent auction, refreshments and more. Admission is a minimum $10 donation to the cause. The emcee on Dec. 14 is Carleton Place Coun. Jerry Flynn, and some of the area’s best entertainers are taking

ing on a small disability pension. On Nov. 22, Dew was put on a breathing machine to increase the oxygen in her blood. Although it is risky, the Mississippi Mills woman will not survive without it. Four days later (Nov. 26), Dew had surgery and is now on a ventilator. She has a feeding tube. Currently, she has ventilator-associated hospitalacquired pneumonia. Fortunately, Dew has been responding to the intravenous antibiotics. It’s important the communities of Mississippi Mills and Carleton Place come together to show Dew they support her 100 per cent.

Lanark County approves zero tax increase in 2014 budget News – Thanks to a minimal levy increase balanced with projected assessment growth, Lanark County Council has approved its 2014 budget with a zero tax increase for 2014. Chief administrative officer/ treasurer Kurt Greaves says the county is “turning the corner� and has improved its financial position despite a period of difficult financial circumstances in Ontario as it enters the third year of a four-year budget planning cycle. “This council is committed to improving the financial health of our community,� he said. “During the current term of council, Lanark County has reduced its debt by $6.5 million and increased capital spending by a total of $7.5 million. On the negative side reserves have gone down $4.6 million. Overall this translates into a net positive improvement of $9.5 million over four years.� The overall budget increases next year by 1.5 per cent, with the county collecting almost $30 million from property taxpayers, up from $29.5 million this year. Estimated gross expenditures are $78.6 million, up from $71.1 million in 2013, while gross revenues (before property tax) are expected to increase by $7.1 million to $48.6 mil-

lion, representing 6.8 per cent more than the previous year. The bulk of the increased expenditures can be attributed to investment in capital, while increased revenue is based largely on transfers from reserves and a $2-million provincial grant for the reconstruction of the Mississippi River bridge on County Road 511. Final 2014 assessment data is not available, but with growth estimated to be 1.5 per cent, the forecast is that most residential ratepayers will see no increase on the county portion of their tax bill. Tax rates and ratios will be set for 2014 early in the new year. Greaves said there are a number of competing interests affecting the budget, including meeting taxpayer expectations regarding levels of service while taking legislation and liability into account; dealing with a fiscal imbalance created by services that have been downloaded by the province without adequate funding; as well as the desire to maintain low tax rates while inflation rises, federal and provincial grants decline and costs for wages, benefits, energy and food increase. “The infrastructure deficit, which pertains largely to roads and bridges and affects all Canadian municipalities, con-

tinues to be a huge issue,� he said. “The provincial debt at $258 billion remains an enormous concern to all municipal governments, too. The direct impact next year is the reduction in child care funding by $184,000 and an indirect impact is a reduction in physiotherapy funding for Lanark Lodge residents of between $46,000 and $160,000.� Greaves noted local municipalities are facing increased financial issues in 2014 with a projected OPP wage increase of 8.55 per cent, a reduction in the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund grant, pressures on municipally run daycare centres due to the implementation of provincial full-day kindergarten, and the infrastructure challenges. Warden Bill Dobson (Montague reeve) thanked council, senior staff and departmental personnel for their hard work during the budget process. “This budget represents the county effectively managing its financial position while taking the challenges faced by the local municipalities and our ratepayers into account. I am very pleased to be able to present a zero per cent increase to our residential ratepayers,� he stated. Roads and bridges capital

works accounts for $9.1 million of the budget. Major county capital projects planned for 2014 include continued planning for a public works operations centre, combined heat and power projects at Lanark Lodge and a public housing unit, construction on the McNeely Avenue extension south of Highway 7, the Mississippi River Bridge replacement on County Road 511 and commencement of work on the Smiths Falls

ambulance bay project. “The last several years have seen an increased use of business case analysis in decisions made by the county,� said corporate services chair John Gemmell (Perth deputy reeve). “We have been concentrating on long-term cost-saving initiatives while investing in key infrastructure, which moves our financial position in the right direction.� “The 2014 budget has been

built to turn the corner toward long-term sustainability,� Greaves added. “The plan is to continue to have moderate levy increases, maintain our capital infrastructure and keep tax increases at or below inflation while reducing our reliance on reserves. We’ve had no new debt since 2010, and we will continue to look for ways to reduce costs.� Submitted by the County of Lanark.

Another interesting aspect is that the tour kicks off on Saturday evening, Dec. 7 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., offering visitors a unique opportunity to view the houses. “It gives it that extra ambiance,” Tunks said of the evening portion of the tour. “We have people who prefer to come in the evening as well as during the day and a lot of people make it a twoday event and pair it with shopping and dining in town.” “…We have an evening tour because no one else does it and it’s easier for the homeowners. They have the whole day to prepare,” she continued. “We can bring something different and special that’s born in Carleton Place,” Arseneau added. The tour continues Sunday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

According to Tunks, it’s important for her to have a variety of different homes for visitors to view. “Not everybody has a heritage home so we try to deliver what we feel most folks would like to see,” she said. “The homes selected represent a variety of large, small, bungalows and two-storey homes,” Arseneau added. 1061 7th Line Beckwith First up is 1061 7th Line in Beckwith, a lovingly restored heritage farmhome which can be traced back to 1850. Much of the original features, including wide plank pine floors, deep window sills and high baseboards have been retained. A major addition doubled the home’s size in 1970 and the present owners continue to lovingly care for the structure. On the tour, antique Christmas décor will adorn this home, as well as a collection of nutcrackers from Christmas markets in Germany.

Community – The spirit of the holiday season will be alive and well in Carleton Place this Saturday, Dec. 7 and Sunday, Dec. 8 for the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital’s (CPDMH) annual Christmas in Carleton Place House Tour. This is the second year for the tour which is back by popular demand with eight homes for visitors to view. The event serves as a fundraiser for the hospital and monies brought in will go towards purchasing patient care equipment. The CPDMH Foundation is trying to raise $341,000 for the hospital this year. “Last year, the house tour brought in people from Kingston, Shawville, Pembroke and Quebec,” noted CPDMH Foundation’s manager of fundraising and communications, Robyn Arseneau. Arseneau is a co-ordinator of the event along with local resident, designer and Christmas aficionado, Jane Tunks. “This (tour) is really Jane’s brainchild. She has a passion for Christmas and wants to share that with the community and also help the community where she’s able. She chose the hospital and the Lanark County Snowsuit Campaign.” Passion for Christmas is an understatement. Tunks’ home was on the tour last year and she’s opening it up again, showing off her 25 Christmas trees decorated in a variety of themes, including a rare yellow tree with a Mardi Gras flavour. “I’ve always loved Christmas and I chose the hospital foundation because of my children and because everyone benefits from the hospital. It’s not just something one or two sectors benefit from, so that was important to me,” she explained. “And the hospital very much appreciates the funds raised from the house tour,” added Arseneau. The pair noted that the Christmas in Carleton Place House Tour offers an experience that’s different from other house tours. Each home is decorated from top to bottom by the homeowners themselves, who are also present during the event and conduct tours of their homes. Goodies and hot apple cider will be available at each of the homes and in some, guests can also take in live entertainment as they walk through the festive rooms. Spotlight will be placed on dining rooms, fireplaces and mantels this year. “This is a Christmas and

Merrickville Aikikai opening up minds to Japanese martial art By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

as a child, Roberts instantly identified with aikido, which translates into ‘way of harmony,’ (ai – harmony, ki – power or energy and do – method or way) and uses natural body movement to deflect an attacker’s intent. It is the youngest of Japanese martial arts, developed by Morihei Ueshiba. “I was one of those kids who had been beat up many times and was a

victim of schoolyard bullying and was beat up every day of Grade 6,” he stated. “On lunch hour, the minute the bell rang I would be out the door running with six guys chasing me and they would push me down on the ground and kick and punch me.” Eventually, Roberts developed strategies of his own where he would fall on the ground and curl up into a

ball. He started judo as a “means for the bullying to end.” “There was no more thrill of the hunt and it wasn’t fun for them anymore. I realized there was something I could do,” he said. However, he didn’t particularly like the competitive aspect of judo. When See AIKIKAI page 10

R0012432735_1128

Community – After eight years as owner and chief instructor of the Ottawa Aikido Centre, Gary Roberts made the decision to bring the Japanese martial art home to Merrickville. A resident of the village, Roberts recently opened Merrickville Aikikai, located at 1211 Highway 43, on Sept.

21. He has been practicing the defensive art of aikido for 40 years, after his father-in-law to-be suggested he try it when he was 19. At the time, he had been involved in judo from the age of 13. “He thought it would be good for me, according to my nature and character,” Roberts said, who is a 4th Dan in the martial art. As someone who was bullied often

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Veterans Affairs seeking veterans for Legion of Honour nominations DEAR EDITOR: News – On June 6, 2014, Canada will mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. Many activities will take place to honour those who lost their lives in the service of Canada and to preserve the memory of their sacrifices and achievements. The Government of France would like to pay special tribute to Canadian veterans who were part of that campaign by appointing them to the Legion of Honour, the highest honour conferred by the Government of France. The Department of Veterans Affairs has agreed to support this initiative, and we encourage you to participate by nominating candidates for this prestigious decoration. The Embassy of France is looking for candidates who took part in the battles and military operations surrounding the landings and the campaign to liberate France between June 6 and Aug. 31, 1944. The

decorations will be awarded in recognition of outstanding achievements in military or civilian life. Please note that all nominations must be received no later than Dec. 31. Information and nomination forms are available through Veterans Affairs and should be sent to the following address: Veterans Affairs Canada, Commemorative Division, Attention Christian Glauninger, 66 Slater Street, Ottawa, ON K1A 0P4. We are tremendously indebted to those who served Canada and fought to protect our rights and freedoms. I invite you to take this opportunity to express your gratitude by nominating a candidate. André Levesque Director General, Commemoration Veterans Affairs Canada

COMMENTARY

Avoid icy situations Editorial – With the first major dumping of snow and frosty temperatures, many minds turn to getting out on to area rivers and lakes for ice fishing, but there are some safety precautions to take note of before you venture out. Currently, temperatures have not been cool enough to freeze water and it isn’t recommended to travel on them. The Ministry of Natural Resources reminds local anglers that ice doesn’t freeze at the same thickness on waterways and can be extremely hazardous at the start of winter. Make sure you check ice thickness with a spud bar or auger before you walk on it. Clear blue ice is actually the strongest, while that which appears white or opaque should set off danger signals. Ice that looks like honeycombs should also be avoided. Just because the area may have consistent snowfalls doesn’t mean lakes and rivers will be frozen. Heavy snow acts as an insulator and can often slow down the freezing process. The ministry recommends putting together a checklist before ice fishing to make sure your activities in the great outdoors are pleasant ones. Some tips to consider are: checking ice conditions with fellow ice hut operators and anglers; let loved ones know when you are planning to fish and return; make sure to register your ice hut; wear the proper clothing and equipment to ensure a safe outing and always take flotation suits with you. To learn about the latest recreational fishing regulations, visit www.mnr.gov.on.ca.

Recycling was in style during Depression long before it became a trend Lifestyle – “Have you got them on yet?” I was talking to my little friend Velma on the next farm. She didn’t have to ask what I was talking about. I had already asked the same question of Joyce. She didn’t have to ask me what I was asking about either. They both knew I was referring to the dreaded navy blue fleece lined bloomers! As soon as there was a bite in the air, out came the bloomers. Now, I had to admit, they certainly kept out the drafts over our flour bag underwear, and once winter had really set in, off came the flour bags and on went the long johns! So our bottoms were well protected when the snow came. Very few of us wore slacks during school hours. Sometimes we put on melton cloth pants that tucked into our galoshes, and wore them on the three and a half mile trek, but they were taken off when we got to school, and hung in the cloakroom at the back. Miss Crosby frowned on girls in pants in the 30s. But just about every girl at the Northcote School wore navy blue fleece lined bloomers. Well, all except bad Marguirite, who thought they were, as she called

them, ugly and not “girl-like” her exact words! Joyce who was very inquisitive was determined she would find out what Marguirite wore to keep warm if she didn’t wear the blue bloomers. And one day she “accidentally” tripped her when we were lining up at the door after Miss Crosby rang the bell, and Marguirite went backside over tea kettle and fell off the step, exposing everything she owned to the entire Northcote School! Well, she hadn’t lied about the blue bloomers. She had on bloomers as white as the driven snow, and Joyce who was closest to her at the fall, said they had fine purple lines through them. She got a real good look, did Joyce. They must have been bought at Walker’s Store in Renfrew, and not from Eaton’s catalogue where ours came from. And so this time of year, you could count on the rest of the girls at the Northcote School wearing the exact same underwear. Early in the fall, Mother would have ordered at least one new pair from Eaton’s catalogue when she sent in her winter order. But they wouldn’t be worn early in the season.

They would be saved for much later. Much later came when the old bloomers had faded to a light purple and a few holes started to appear. This happened from many slidings down the snow that was piled over the back fence at the Northcote School, just in front of the outdoor rink. The boys in Senior Fourth would have built the snow slide and doused it with pails of water from the pump, and when they were finished and it had frozen solid, it provided many recess hours of sliding down on our backsides. Of course, the bloomers took the full brunt of the icy slide, and it didn’t take long for the navy blue dye to fade. And many was the day, after recess was over, we went back into the school, 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

and sat on wet bottoms until it was time to go home at four o’clock! But it didn’t matter how faded the bloomers became; the new ones were kept for special occasions. Special occasions meant going to church, or visiting neighbours for the Saturday night house parties. And on Christmas morning, I was allowed to wear the new bloomers, because after all, it was also ‘going to church day’ too! The bloomers had elastic legs. But the elastic was never taut enough to hold up our beige ribbed stockings. And so we still had to wear tight elastic bands for that purpose. Of course, we could pull the legs of the bloomers down to cover the bands, and when we undressed at night before going to bed, it wasn’t unusual to have deep furrows in our legs where the elastic was worn all day! And when I got into bed at night, beside my sister Audrey, I would still be scratching the dents in my legs until Audrey would slap me on my back and tell me to “cut it out, you’re driving me crazy with all that scratching.” By mid-winter, the navy blue bloomers, from the wear and tear they got, ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

and the many washings with homemade lye soap, would spring a hole, usually around the elastic legs or on the elastic waist band. That’s when I would lament to Mother that the bloomers were done for. And even when mending them with navy thread failed to make them presentable, they would be deemed unwearable, much to my delight. They took on many other lives. Now, I would get the brand new bloomers that had been tucked away since early fall! And I was glad to see the last of the old faded ones. But that wasn’t to be the end of the old bloomers. Oh no, they were put to another use by Mother. The elastic was taken out of the legs and waist, and put in the sewing basket. The bloomers were sliced open and cut into at least two pieces. Then they were tucked into the rag bag, and used for dusting, wiping up spills, and of course, they were ideal for scrubbing the floors every Saturday. Like everything else back in the those Depression years, the bloomers were ‘recycled’ decades before the term was ever heard of! • 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.

which teaches people how to defend themselves against their attacker without competing or harming them, Roberts said, “my life changed.” “Unlike other arts…there is no competition. You’re not competing against someone else for prowess. You’re on your own path, your own discovery,” he commented. In fact, one of the main principles of aikido is no competition. The art isn’t about “competing against someone else for prowess,” said Roberts, but instead allowing a participant to go down their own path to self-discovery. “The notion of competition is about looking to find flaws, capitalize on them and it’s all aggressive kinds of thinking,” he continued. “(Aikido) is about awareness and how people act. You’re not trying to judge, you do your own thing.” Roberts became a member of the University of Western’s aikido club, was introduced to some “exceptional people” and his life changed within three months. “I was exposed to the best of the best (in aikido) in Quebec and Ontario,” he stated. He noted that aikido is about learning the difference between reacting and responding and about doing so with a clear mind. It’s a defensive art, not an aggressive one. “There is so much that we fear and that’s going to wear you down,” Roberts said. “The idea (of aikido) is to learn progressively over time how truly to be yourself and not live in contraction or be fearful.” “It only teaches you methods that

Aikido appeals to the mind and intellect.” Roberts’ partner, Howaida Sorour, who is a 4th Kyu, said she has learned a lot from his style of teaching. “I was always a reactor and that’s the biggest value of aikido for me. I’ve become a much better parent,” she said. Sorour appreciates the fact that through aikido she’s learned skills that will aid in her in every day life

and situations. “Gary teaches skills that you can use, for example, what to do if someone grabs you from behind by a piece of clothing,” she explained. “So he doesn’t each classic aikido moves every day, he also teaches his students how to deal with day to day situations and real world problems.” Because of the way aikido teaches participants to stop living in fear, Roberts said it can make people stronger emotionally, mentally and physically.

And while it is serious, there’s a lot of fun aspects as well. “It’s a dance-like martial art. At every class, 80 per cent of the time everybody is smiling, laughing,” he explained, adding that people already have the skills shown in aikido, he just shows them how to release them. “... People are smiling most of the time because they didn’t realize how simple it is and wonder why they lived in fear for so long. It’s relaxing.” “It’s not that I’m teaching anybody

Finding his way Since 1987, Roberts has had his own aikido dojo and in 2005 opened the Ottawa Aikido Centre, which he still operates today. He decided to establish Merrickville Aikikai because “I live here and this is my new home.” He splits his time between the two but hopes to be in Merrickville more as the centre gains popularity. Roberts already has a following in Ottawa as one of his students is a lead instructor with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. “I’m also seeing military groups and police officers coming in,” he said. “They come see me to relax the mind, body and spirit.” Currently, Merrickville Aikikai offers four classes each week: Monday and Friday evenings at 6 p.m., Saturday mornings at 9 a.m. and a class Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. for those 55 and up. Each session lasts approximately an hour and a half and includes demonstration and an opportunity for each participant to practice techniques they’ve learned. Classes are $20 each up to a maximum of $100 a month. “He teaches everyone from absolute beginner to one student who is about to take black belt testing. All levels are taught in one class,” Sorour said. “As you’re working with your partner, every one of us gets to be a student or teacher and have that back and forth.” For more information, please email Roberts at garyroberts99@gmail.com. “Aikido speaks to every single one of us, in one way or another,” Roberts said.

Classic Theatre Festival announces fifth anniversary season the freedom to pick their actual show dates closer to summer. The festival’s summer season will open with Neil Simon’s Broadway debut, the uproariously funny Come Blow Your Horn, Simon’s comedic take on the swinging bachelor lifestyle of the early 1960s. The story of a ladies’ man who appears to tire of juggling girlfriends, and his younger brother who idolizes his sibling and wants to follow in his footsteps, the play features trademark Simon charac-

Arts – A visit from a famous talking snowman sadly ends in a tragic auto accident in BarnDoor Productions’ Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some!). The comedy opens at Perth’s Full Circle Theatre this Friday and runs to Dec. 15. To reserve tickets, call 613267-1884.

During 2014, the festival will add an additional Thursday matinee, and shows will run Wednesday to Saturday, at 8 p.m., with 2 p.m. matinees each Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Each matinee will feature the return of the hugely popular pre-show talks that situate the play in its historical context, explain plot elements, the background of the playwright, and a discussion of the show’s original production. The festival will also feature a Canadian theatre history exhibit in its lobby, building on the success of the Now and Then exhibit that graced the walls of the Perth Museum during the summer and fall of 2013. It also has plans for a guided walking tour named Perth through the Ages, featuring our new youth theatre troupe that will animate the town’s downtown core by recreat-

The intricacies of the scheme, the investigation by Scotland Yard, and the possibility that the plotter may be caught leave audiences on the edge of their seats. The New York Times called it “remarkably good theatre, tingling with excitement.� Dial M for Murder will run Aug. 8 to 31. “Reading the play on paper is real page turner; seeing it on stage will be even more exciting,� says Smith. “Audiences will really enjoy this play, because it has all the elements that make up a good mystery, with a slow but steady build that, while working well on film, works even better live. Because audiences are so close to the stage, they feel like part of the action,� explains Smith.

Until Dec. 31, purchasers can take advantage of the festival’s annual holiday sale and receive a 20 per cent discount, with the freedom to pick their dates later in 2014.

New wireless code comes into effect News – The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) today marked the coming into force of its wireless code, which enables Canadians to cancel their contracts at no cost after a maximum of two years. The code also makes it easier for Canadians to understand their contracts for cellphones and other mobile devices and sets out their basic rights. “The coming into force of the wireless code marks the beginning of a more dynamic marketplace for wireless services,” said Jean-Pierre Blais, chairman of the CRTC. “Rather than feeling trapped by their contracts, Canadians will be able to make informed choices about the wireless services – and service providers – that best meet their needs every two years, if not more often. It will be in the best interests of wireless companies to adopt innovative practices to ensure their customers are satisfied and to attract new ones.” The wireless code will apply to all new contracts signed as of Dec. 2. It will also apply to existing contracts that are renewed or extended, or where the

key terms are amended, as of that same date. In addition, the code will apply to all wireless contracts as of June 3, 2015, regardless of when they were signed. Among other things, the wireless code will allow individual and small business consumers to: • Terminate their wireless contracts after two years without cancellation fees • Limit data charges in excess of the usage defined in their plans at $50/ month • Limit national and international data roaming charges in excess of the usage defined in their plans at $100/month • Have their cellphone unlocked after 90 days, or immediately if they paid for the device in full • Return their cellphone, within 15 days and specific usage limits, if they are unhappy with their service • Accept or decline changes to the key terms of a fixed-term (i.e., two-year) contract, and receive a contract that is easy to read and understand.

Mountain is growing ljweir@metroland.com

Community – The food mountain is continuing to grow after last weekend when Hugh Colton and the gang were in Westport and Elgin for the Build a Mountain of Food campaign. “There was overwhelming generosity in these communities,” said Colton late Tuesday afternoon. In Westport, Colton was able to collect 1,365 pounds of food and $4,970 in cash donations. In Elgin, another 990 pounds of food were collected along with $3,800 in cash donations. “The cash donations and the food collected was just amazing,” he added. At the end of his day Saturday, he travelled back to Carleton Place to take part in the Santa Claus parade where he got on the bull horn to thank the community for their support in the recent blitz there. “We don’t take anything away from their food drive for the Lanark County Food Bank,” said Colton. “We are there to express our thanks for their generosity to the Build a Mountain campaign.” Friday night, the team is in Perth for a 5:30 p.m. stint with the Perth Blue Wings at the arena prior to their home game where they will be collecting cash and food donations for the mountain of food blitz.

All told, the campaign has raised an incredible $26,098.23 in cash donations, and Colton and his crew have collected 88,487 pounds of food. The final leg of the campaign will take the crew to Athens on Saturday, Dec. 14 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Freshmart grocery store in support of the Athens Food Bank. From 1 to 4 p.m. the food caravan will be picking up donations at the Delta Country Market in support of the Delta Food Bank. The campaign will cover 11 communities throughout the blitz. Lake 88.1 Radio will be airing on-going promotional announcements and live reports from all the food blitz locations, as they work together with the many food bank volunteers to gather, separate and organize the donations. The latest report from Ontario food banks shows that the number of rural families requiring food bank assistance is increasing. Between four to five out of ten of these people are children.

There’s nothing like the office Christmas party Lifestyle – With Christmas rapidly approaching it is party season. In modern times at least the Christmas party – especially office parties – are as much anticipated as other annual holiday rituals including the Santa Claus parade, decorating the Christmas tree and exchanging gifts. Admittedly with the recession having bitten deep in many sectors, a lot of companies have canceled Christmas parties and cut or eliminated holiday bonuses in an effort to stay in the black. Seems a shame, but it’s a reality of the economic times we face early in the 21st century. My wife and I are fortunate enough to be on a number of holiday guest lists. Right now we are in the midst of a Christmas social bonanza. The party season started two weeks ago and continues every weekend until the third week of this month. I put it down to longevity actually. The longer you work in certain professions and the longer you live in a community, the more likely you are to receive invitations to events. For us Christmas is the busiest time of the year. Our calendar is marked by a series of work-related and community parties along with seasonal concerts and private dinners! Of course nothing can replace the enjoyment of spending the holidays with our children, other

family members and friends. Still, I wouldn’t miss the Christmas party circuit. Not a chance! If you enjoy conversation and people watching (I’m a shameless chatterbox and people watcher) then there is nothing like holiday parties. I am rarely, if ever, disappointed. If you have ever attended an office or company Christmas party you will relate to this! It usually goes this way. Dinner is preceded by the mandatory social hour. Get there early because the line-ups at the bar are lengthy, especially if the boss, in a moment of weakness, decides to run a tab for the first half hour. Most of us gravitate to those we work with or the people we know, including acquaintances made during many years of holiday soirees. Most people clean up nicely but there are always a few exceptions. Some gents are very uncomfortable in penguin suits and spend the evening pulling at their collars or straightening their ties. While many ladies are at their stylish best there are always two

Trading stories Gossip is the fodder of most Christmas parties. What better time to trade stories than over a few drinks with colleagues! The firm, certain unpopular employees and usually the manager and/ or owner are normally on the wrong end of some well-aimed barbs or jokes. Like the reception itself, that is mandatory! Usually these affairs are incredibly loud. The din in the reception room reaches a crescendo See PARTY page 23

or three who try to squeeze into dresses two or three sizes too small (last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apparel probably). And there is always one or two women who choose gowns that are cut all the way to China. They generally attract lots of male attention which is no doubt the object of the exercise. Then there are the dressed down party-goers. Those who think blue jeans are formal wear, that a bulky sweater with a rolled collar is de rigueur or that an open necked shirt is appropriate. Of course at most Christmas parties the office joker shows up wearing a loud sweater â&#x20AC;&#x201C; red, white and green â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with Santa Claus and his reindeer or a snowman emblazoned on the front. Normally Rudolphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nose or the snowmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carrot schnoz is a horn!

REGIONAL NEWS PARTY From page 21

as people guzzle their third drink in 20 minutes. Personally I enjoy those â&#x20AC;&#x153;Red Skeltonâ&#x20AC;? moments when someone shouts something particularly insulting just as the conversation wanes. Their remark can clearly be heard at the other end of the building. Brilliant! Dinner at these affairs can either be a treat or a disaster. Large tables are a bonus. Because if the settings are too tight you normally find someone else using your napkin, drinking out of your glass or, worst of all, buttering your roll using your knife. As for the meal itself, if you encounter mystery meat at a Christmas party it is usually turkey. Having table service, something we enjoyed recently, is a bonus. Most of

Connected to your community

these events feature buffets and usually our table is the last called. Even the mystery meat is gone by the time we reach the buffet! The holiday smorgasbords are also noteworthy due to the number of people who spill gravy on the floor and/or themselves. Running a slippery 100metre gauntlet of starving party-goers balancing a heaping plate of food, in formal wear with a bun and butter jammed in each pocket is a feat worthy of a medal. Or at the very least a larger bonus! Then you have to do it all over again if you want dessert and a coffee. Brutal! If you survive the reception and dinner you are in for a real treat during the entertainment portion of the evening. At many of these shindigs the boss or manager takes the opportunity to

address the masses, thanking them for their diligence, punctuality and contribution to the bottom line. References to the balance sheet are normally accompanied by a cautionary note. Something like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want a party next year youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to work twice as hard in 2014. Merry Christmas!â&#x20AC;? Cue the catcalls Most such activities conclude with a dance. In many cases budgetary constraints lead managers to hire a disc jockey. There are rare exceptions of course, but usually DJs have a set pattern. First of all they spin a couple of mouldy, oldies (Jerry Mathis or Frank Sinatra) to give the old folks, who usually comprise at least half the crowd, a slow dance or two. That is invariably followed by that

infamous DJ question, shouted into the microphone at the top of their lungs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you ready to party?â&#x20AC;? The music then hits Mach 7 and the roof nearly comes off the building. The rest of the night I am reduced to trying to read lips. Usually the lips are my wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or the person seated on the other side of me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wholly unsuccessful endeavor and I just try to smile, frown or nod in the right places. Is it just me or are DJs really only there to entertain themselves? I mean seriously, who wants to hear â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bat Out of Hellâ&#x20AC;? at a Christmas party! The evening is saved by the aforementioned people watching. With liquid refreshments flowing freely the inhibitions of a lot of folks go out the window. I know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve reached that stage when someone tries to lie across three chairs and ends up on the floor. Off come the shoes and with arms

and legs flailing like windmills the dance floor is turned into a danger zone. My favourite scene at our second Christmas party this season was the tall, not so shapely lady in a black dress that was far too small for her, dancing by herself at her table, waving her arms slowly above her head. She was oblivious to everything around her. I saw her partner take the half full wine glass from her place and put it on the far side of the table. He slid over three places and spent the rest of the night trying to read the lips of the guy in the next chair. Ah, the office Christmas party. Whatever you do, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss yours!

CHRISTMAS

Community - Train rides are always exciting but the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is even more special with its thousands of lights, its promise of entertainment and all the contagion of crowds waiting for it to arrive. I had the privilege this year of riding the Holiday Train from Merrickville to Smiths Falls thanks to mayor Dennis Staples, who donated his five tickets to Carolyn Barr at the Smiths Falls Community Food Bank. “The CP Holiday Train ride from Merrickville to Smiths Falls was a big thrill and I wish everyone could experience the beauty and tranquility of this journey. This year’s train decorated in thousands of LED lights was even more beautiful and with a good helping of snow, the lights were even more spectacular,” said Barr describing the experience for all of us. In Smiths Falls, the fire department was out as usual collecting non-perishable food items donated by the crowd that had gathered at the Station Theatre to see the train and enjoy the entertainment. This year Smiths Falls Rosedale Singers also entertained the crowd from the steps of the Station Theatre, and the Lee Hotel provided hot chocolate to the chilled crowd. In Merrickville the crowd was swelled with people from surrounding towns including Burritts Rapids and Kemptville. “The crowds in both Merrickville and Smiths Falls were so full of energy, it was electric,” observed Barr. It probably helped that the entertainers on the train this year were very recognizable and absolutely stellar. “The entertainers, Jim Cuddy, Melanie Doane, Roxanne Potvin and Ann Lindsay were enormously energetic which must have been hard given they all had to be cold,” said Barr. This year’s entertainment was made possible by Randall Prescott, an Ottawa producer who has been involved with the Holiday Train for the past 13 years at least, according to Randy Marsh, manager community relations for CP. The train’s schedule makes for a marathon of shows for the performers who agree to take part.

“I like trains and I like the idea of involving the food banks, so it’s all good,” said Cuddy. The cold definitely took its toll as Cuddy stood in the train rolling hand warmers between his fingers to get some circulation back into his hands. “I think they’d (hands) warm up if we played long enough - but that wasn’t long enough, now they just kinda hurt,” said Cuddy with a smile. Still, as he pointed out, he’s used to doing at least one outdoors winter show every year. Whether it was because of the train or because of the incredibly welcoming crowds the performers were clearly energized and very approachable. “They were exceptionally relaxed and available for photos and conversation,” said Barr. On a more serious note, the point of the Holiday Train is to raise awareness and funds for the food banks in all the communities it visits. “This is the 15th year Canadian Pacific Railway has supported and raised hunger awareness with food and cash donations to local Food Banks as they tour across North America. This year we the Smiths Falls Community Food Bank were very fortunate to receive the generous cash donation of $7,000,” said Barr. In Merrickville the village Food Pantry received a $4,000 donation from CP. As Marsh pointed out, the Holiday Train is the perfect way to reach small and remote communities, regardless of the weather. “There’s virtually nothing that can stop us, and we give Santa a ride and go to towns so small he gets to see kids who wouldn’t get to see Santa in person,” said Marsh. So here’s hoping the train continues to run for many years to come, not just for the entertainment and magic it spreads but for the comfort and awareness they raise. “The Smiths Falls Community Food Bank clients, volunteers and Board of Directors is humbled by the generosity of CPR and our Community by the food and cash donations provided during the CP Holiday Train’s visit,” said Barr. “Thank you so much and Merry Christmas!”

United Way of Lanark County celebrates Scotiabank corporate donation By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

News – A corporate donation on behalf of area Scotiabank branches brings the United Way of Lanark County (UWLC) a step closer to its 2013 fundraising goal. On Monday, Dec. 1, Fraser Scantlebury, UWLC executive director, and Emily Danaher, UWLC fund development officer, accepted a gift of $2,500 from Christine Coulas, Carleton Place branch manager. The Perth and Smiths Falls branch managers were unable to attend the presentation.

“Scotiabank makes a corporate donation each year.” FRASER SCANTLEBURY UNITED WAY LANARK COUNTY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

“A strong supporter, Scotiabank makes a corporate donation each year,” said Scantlebury. He added the organization truly appreciates its community partners. Representing the significant need that Lanark County communities feel in the current difficult economic times, the goal of the UWLC’s 2013 fundraising campaign is $350,000. “Currently, we are at 61 per cent (roughly $213,500),” said Scantlebury, “and because we are always a year behind, the money is 2014’s allocation.” The local chapter of the United Way works with 16 partner agencies, which

depend on financial contributions to run programs. The impact of donations is made within the organization’s three community priorities: All That Kids Can Be; Poverty To Possibility; and Healthy People, Strong Communities. Member agencies are as follows: Adult Learning and Training Centre; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County; Carleton Place and District Youth Centre; Children’s Resources On Wheels; CNIB; Community and Primary Health Care; Community Home Support – Lanark County; Family and Children’s Services; Lanark County Community Justice Programs Inc.; Lanark Highlands Youth Centre; Mills Community Support Corporation; Smiths Falls and District Club for Youth; Canadian Hearing Society; Tri-County Dental Coalition; TYPS (Taking Young People Seriously); and YAK (Youth Action Kommittee of Perth and District). There are a variety of ways to donate to the UWLC, including payroll deduction through your workplace (remember to specify ‘Lanark County’), directly to the office (call with credit card information or mail a cheque), or from the organization’s secure website (www.lanarkunitedway.com). New this year, individuals can have their donation withdrawn directly from their bank account. The UWLC office is located at 15 Bates Dr. in Carleton Place. For additional information about the organization or 2013 campaign, call 613- 253-9074.

Special Olympians meet their hockey heroes thanks to a generous gesture By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community - On Wednesday, Nov. 28 a benign ambush was organized at the Century 21 office on Beckwith Street. Sergeant Paul Klassen of the Smiths Falls Police, Marlene Hull, with her son Robbie Hull, and two other Special Olympians, Jessi Neil and Kristy Jones all lay in wait for an unsuspecting Rob Garvin, Century 21 sales rep. They were there to thank Garvin in person for making the dream of attending a Senators hockey game come true for the Smiths Falls group of Special Olympians.

“The icing on the cake was that the kids got to meet the players and got autographs…” MARLENE HULL PARENT OF SPECIAL OLYMPIAN

“The game was on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 5 p.m., and there were 10 athletes able to attend, plus some family and attendants. The entire cost – the private box, tickets and food – was paid for by Rob Garvin, completely out of his own pocket. The bus to get everyone there was donated by Healey’s Transportation,” said Klassen. In addition Garvin, who is a former hockey player and Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears’ assistant coach, knows Ottawa Senators’ defenceman and assistant captain Chris Phillips. Garvin contacted Phillips ahead of the game and told him what was going on, why he was going to be at that particular game and who his companions would be. After the game Garvin led the kids down into the arena and outside the players’ dressing room. “So the icing on the cake was that the kids got to meet the players and got autographs on jerseys and whatever they had with them to autograph,”

said Hull. “Chris and his wife Erin were amazing and went out of their way to make the kids feel welcome,” said Garvin, who was both surprised and visibly touched by the office ambush. According to Klassen, Senators coach Paul McLean also went out of his way to welcome the entire group. “He organized the kids for a photograph with him, and all the players took the time to talk to the kids, autograph their stuff and get pictures taken,” said Klassen. The entire chain of events began in June of this summer during the Law Enforcement Torch Run’s annual golf tournament. “These guys (the athletes) give us a hand with all our fundraising events,” said Klassen, Law Enforcement Torch Run coordinator. This year, Garvin casually asked if there was some way to show appreciation for what those children do every year at every fundraiser. “The kids spoke up very quickly and said they wanted to go to a Sens game,” said Hull, “and Rob stepped up and said he was going to make that happen.” Sure enough, Garvin came through with his promise and in October he contacted Klassen and the parents. “Out of the blue, Rob said I’ve got a game and I’ve got a bus,” said Hull. As most people are aware the Torch Run raises funds so that Special Olympics athletes can benefit from training and competing in Special Olympics sports in each province. What most people don’t know is that the athletes are usually involved in lending a hand at all the events held to make their sports training and games happen. Garvin’s generosity went a long way to thanking the Smiths Falls athletes and was deeply appreciated by them. “It was a very exciting and fun,” said Jones.

Wishing to thank their benefactor for his generous gift, three members of the Smiths Falls Special Olympics crowded into the Century 21 lobby recently.

Smiths Falls police initiates Christmas RIDE program News - The Smiths Falls Police Service has commenced the 2013 Christmas RIDE Program which will continue through the festive season. Did you know that impaired driving continues to be one of Ontario’s most significant road safety issues? During the past decade, more than 2,000 lives have been lost and more than 50,000 people have sustained injuries in collisions involving a drinking driver. Impaired driving hurts everyone - through deaths, injuries and personal tragedies.

It also hurts our economy through added costs for health care, emergency response and property damage. The financial cost to society of drinking and driving is estimated to be at least $3 billion annually. While Ontario has come a long way, impaired driving remains a serious problem. It is not only impaired driving in a motor vehicle. A person can also be charged while operating a motorized snow vehicle, all terrain vehicle, motor boat or any motorized vehicle.

The features focus on residents of Smiths Falls who made the supreme sacrifice for their country during World War II. Glen Benson Loney was born in Russell, Ontario on June 11th, 1920. He was raised by his parents William and Sarah Loney. As a child Glen attended Kenmore Public School from 1926 to 1934, Kenmore Cont. from 1934 to 1937, Kitchener Vocational from 1937 to 1938, and Ottawa H.S. Commerce from September of 1938 to December 1938. After leaving school Glen had a variety of different jobs such as a book keeper at Hobart Mnf. Co. in Ottawa from December of 1938 to September 1939, a machine operator at E.B. Eddy Company in Hull from September 1939 to March 1940, and working at National Research Council in Ottawa Starting in March of 1940 until enlistment. On September 10th, 1941 Glen Benson Loney entered an enlistment office in Ottawa

Glen Benson Loney and signed up for the Royal Canadian Air Force. Glen passed the physical and mental exam with outstanding credit. He was married

to his wife Ina Kathleen Lorimer (who died in 1993). They lived on 33 Chambers Street in Smiths Falls, Ontario. From these documents it appears that Glen had one son, also named Glen, but unfortunately his son never got to now Glen, as he died in 1943. After Glen signed up for the RCAF, he trained at several sites around Canada such as Valcartier, Summerside in PEI, Victoriaville, Chatham, and Hagersville. At these places, he trained to be a pilot for a Lancaster Bomber. After much training he succeeded in doing so. It was in 1942 when Glen was shipped off to England where he was a part of the 619 Squadron. He had many successful bombing missions over Germany. It was on December 16th, 1943 when Pilot Officer Glen Loneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lancaster bomber was shot down over Finow, Germany while on a bombing raid to Berlin. Finow is located just northeast of Berlin. Although Finow had several forced labour camps that were part of the German War Machine, the city itself was not part of the Allied bombing campaign during the war. It was most likely they were shot down by enemy fighters or anti-aircraft guns. In this crash three complete crews were involved but only three men were identified after the crash. Glen Benson Loney is currently buried at the Berlin 1939-1945 War Cemetery just outside of Berlin, Germany. To this day there are still members of his family living in Smiths Falls. Lest we forget Glenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sacrifice in the Second World War.

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - December 9, 1913 Exhibiting Products and Illustrating Resources of Northern Ontario The demonstration car, which is commonly called an “agricultural exhibition on wheels” now touring Eastern Ontario, reached Smiths Falls on Tuesday and was open to all visitors during the day and evening until 9 o’clock. The car started on October 1st from Northern Ontario, about 138 miles north west of North Bay, and has been touring Eastern Ontario ever since. It is sent out by the Colonization Department of the Ontario Government in an effort to bring people to settle in that broad expanse of the country of which so few have any real knowledge.

50 YEARS AGO - December 19, 1963 Survey Finds Education Costs in Smiths Falls Below Average Educational costs in Smiths Falls during 1962 were considerably lower than the average costs of communities of comparable size throughout Ontario. This was revealed in the report received this week from the Ontario Association of School Business officials which has just completed a province-wide survey on educational costs. The figures are for the cost per pupil on an average daily attendance before any grants are deducted. Secondary academic education in Smiths Falls during 1962 cost $497.71 per pupil per year where as the average for other boards was $573.07, which amounts to 13.2 per cent higher than local costs.

25 YEARS AGO - December 14, 1988 Toboggan Hill nears Completion All Rick St. Dennis needs for Christmas is about two feet of snow. The town’s director of parks and recreation has been overseeing the removal of trees and the landscaping of the toboggan hill located across from the Ontario Hydro substation on Eric Hutcheson Road. “I’m quite pleased with the progress we have made,” said Mr. St. Dennis, “Now all we need is snow.” The hillside on property owned by area farmer Percy Joynt was suggested to council earlier this year when the town was in search for a toboggan run. Former Council Ivan Thompson, the chairman of the recreation committee was thinking of a man-made hill in Lower Reach Park before Mr. Joynt approached the town at a public meeting.

Make up your minds, is marijuana legal or not? Opinion - They took his uniform but he kept his 20-year exemplary service medal. I’m talking about the 20-year veteran RCMP officer who was required to return his red serge uniform after he allowed himself to be filmed smoking medical marijuana in a bid to raise awareness about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Yet it’s OK for an officer to take diabetic medications while on duty, it’s OK to take the cocktail of drugs prescribed for PTSD, which incidentally come with a slew of nasty side effects. It’s even all right to take prescription pain medications while on duty. The thing is, there is no requirement for any RCMP officer to disclose prescription medications they are taking, and their supervisors would not have access to that information since privacy laws and patient-doctor confidentiality protect it. So the issue here is that Francis didn’t hide his medication. He publicly took it much to the horror of colleagues who could be twice as drugged-up but nobody knows because pills are a lot easier to hide than a joint. Hmm, am I the only one who sees a dis-

10 YEARS AGO - December 10, 2003 New Council in Montague Township

Montague Township welcomed some new faces the evening of December 2nd when the new council met for its inaugural meeting.

The regular meeting of council was an opportunity for new councillors to see first-hand how things are done in Montague. Councillors Julie Kipp and Bill Eckersley as well as deputy reeve David Schoular now join incumbent councillor Lita Richards and reeve Gary Doyle at the township council table. New councillors slowly made their way into their new roles by asking plenty of questions along the way and some councillors sat back and took in what was happening around them.

HOWAIDA SOROUR Heddy’s Ramble connect here? Frankly I’ll take the marijuana smoking officer over the fellow that’s high on Oxycontin or any other extremely addictive percocet. If Corporal Francis has been prescribed marijuana to deal with certain symptoms of posttraumatic stress then he is not taking an illegal drug. At least not according to Health Canada regulation, which permit and sanction people with conditions that respond well to medicinal marijuana to use the medication. It seems to me that the problem here is one of optics. In this case the RCMP’s perception of itself. Oh yes it’s easy to argue that they have an image to protect. They do. The image they’ve just thrown out with the bathwater. Their motto is ‘Maintiens le droit’, which translates to ‘defend/uphold the law’ or ‘defend/up-

hold the rights’. Interesting ....? Here they are pledged to defend the law and yet they’re at the very least arguing the law while stealing away the right of one of their own to deal with a condition that he might not even have if he hadn’t joined them in the first place. Let’s face it, this isn’t about Francis’s ability to perform his job. Francis is already on administrative duty - he’s a desk jockey. The issue is that he publicly smoked marijuana while wearing his uniform. Certainly there’s an argument to be made for discretion, but at what cost? If the drug is legal and is medically prescribed then Francis using it in or out of uniform makes no difference. Essentially he’s representative of that segment of the population that has been prescribed medicinal marijuana. I fail to see how taking prescription medication dishonours the RCMP in any way. Does this mean that the thousands of medicinal marijuana users out there are also suspect. I think it’s time the RCMP and all front line services make up their minds - is prescribed medicinal marijuana legal or illegal? It can’t be both.

Community - The Smiths Falls Westmister Presbyterian Church and First Baptist Church shared a service on Dec. 1 at the start of Advent. The service started at Westminster Presbyterian with Rev. Jill Turnbull and then following the lighting of the advent candle and a blessing the congregation rose and walked across the street singing ‘Hark The Herald Angels Sing’ as they crossed Beckwith Street, switching to Silent Night as they entered the First Baptist Church where they continued the advent service with Rev David Stead.

LE T TERS TO THE EDITOR

Donate to Salvation Army and help those in need DEAR EDITOR: Christmas is an important time for The Salvation Army as more than 50 per cent of the funds we raise annually are collected during the Christmas season. The Salvation Army in Smiths Falls is calling on our generous community to help us make Christmas possible for everyone. We are currently in need of donated non-perishable food items for our Christmas Hampers and our food banks. This year we expect to distribute 400 Christmas Hampers to those in need in the Smiths Falls area. The Salvation Army in Smiths Falls also assists other organizations that provide hampers in Carleton Place, Almonte and Merrickville. Another way the community can help is by donating to our Christmas

Kettle Campaign and through direct mail to help us fund the Christmas Hamper Program and many other programs throughout the year that provide the basic necessities to individuals and families. The need within our communities continues to grow but with your support we can ensure that families have food, warm clothing and utility assistance through the cold winter months as well as toys at Christmas. Anyone who would like to drop off a non-perishable food item can do so at our Community and Family Services office at 251 Brockville St. in Smiths Falls. Sincerely, Malcolm Cameron (Major) & A. Faith Cameron (Major) Corps Officer & Community Services Officer

New Rideau Lakes bylaw wrong, reader says of people.” This bylaw will seriously affect the ability of our representatives to question any of the items on the cheque registers, budget overruns as well as many other issues. It will tie the hands of anyone who wants to question information that is not already published. This should put a big cloud over this council concerning transparency. This bylaw will enable the current council and staff to hide any information that they see fit both from fellow council members and the public. It is a sad day for Rideau Lakes when our local representatives feel that they have a right to sensor any information. “Censorship, like charity, should begin at home, but unlike charity, it should end there.” - Clare Boothe Luce Paula Banks Lombardy

DEAR EDITOR: Last night Rideau Lakes council passed a bylaw that Mayor Ron Holman brought to the table about requests for information from staff, in a 6-3 vote with Jeff Banks, Rob Taylor and Bob Lavoie voting against. This new bylaw will give the mayor and council the power to vote if requests for information from fellow council members or the public will be fulfilled or denied. They will also have the ability to assign a fee for any information that is not already published. Even if a council member or a consistent offer to pay for the costs of collecting the information council will still have the right to deny the request. According to Mayor Holman last night, “Council will have the ability to decide what information would benefit all tax payers and what information may only benefit one person or a small group

Smiths Falls Legion boasts busy fall and winter season Community - The Smiths Falls Legion Branch 95 has been such a busy spot these past couple of months. We keep saying to ourselves that there is light at the end of the tunnel but the tunnel seems to be very long. We held the Legion District Convention at our branch Oct. 18 to 20. We had approximately 200 Legion members visit us from other parts of Ontario. This is the first time this event was held in our zone or town. It was a very successful event and allowed us to showcase not only our branch, but our great town. Our many volunteers stepped up to the plate to ensure everyone was welcomed in a first class manner; rides were provided to and from their hotels and they were treated to exceptional meals from our chef and Ladies Auxiliary. Special thanks to the Town of Smiths Falls and the local police for providing an escort for our parade to the local cenotaph to acknowledge those that have given so much for us to enjoy the freedom we have today. We barely had time to breath and went right into the poppy campaign. This year was a little different for those who purchased wreaths and crosses as we had made the decision to computerize the process and as we all know this takes extra time and energy to make it work for the first year. We had two great ladies, Ashley Adey and Cindy McNaughton-Greencorn who worked tirelessly at making this process work. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused anyone this year but the system set up is a great tracking system and should make the campaign run very smooth in the coming year. For the members who gave their time to sit at the many stores for distribution of the poppies a big thank you. The campaign was very successful and all money collected are kept in a special trust fund with strict guidelines set out by our command office to ensure veterans are taken care of when they require assistance. Remembrance Day arrived with cold and snow but it didn’t dampen the spirit of the many veterans, RCR’s from Petawawa, 585 Air Cadets, Scouts, invited dignitaries and the general public from attending our service at the main cenotaph. The overflow of wreaths and crosses

was a site to behold. Many came back to the Legion for hot soup and a light lunch. We then hosted our annual veterans’ dinner that evening which brings many veterans together to mingle with old friends and enjoy a great meal prepared by our Ladies Auxiliary. This year our dinner ended on a sad note, as we lost one of our Life Member veterans who passed away that evening. Jack Rabb was a pillar of the community and a very dedicated Legion member. The Legion was like a second home to Jack and he will be missed by many of his friends. With Remembrance Day behind us we had no down time as we were right into the planning stages of the Santa Claus Parade. With the Legion being the major sponsor along with the cooperation of the Town of Smiths Falls it was comforting to have the Kinsmen come on board to help with the organization. Santa came in style this year with lights shining brightly. We received a special request from him to have a “Night Parade” and so it was. Our very first night parade was a huge success based on all the feedback received. The streets were lined with hundreds of people braving the cold to see the “Jolly old Sole”. He stayed over in Smiths Falls and came to the Legion the next morning to have breakfast with over 200 children, parents and grandparents anxiously wanting to give him their wish list. We wish to thank the many people who donated their time, money or supplies of candy or hot dogs to ensure

Santa and the children of all ages had a fabulous time. The many businesses and organizations that put in Floats. Town of Smiths Falls including the finest police force, fire department and recreation department; the Kinsmen and their members that opened up their hall, providing warmth and refreshments; the judges that checked out each and every float and had the very hard task of picking winners; the search and rescue team that braved the cold from early in the day to late in the night; 585 Air Cadets, Andress Independent, Shoppers Drug Mart, Giant Tiger, Sweet Briar Tea Room, J Quattrocchi & Co Ltd., Guy Saumure & Sons Construction, Dollar World, Pharma Plus, Smiths Falls Bears, St. Luke students, Stu McLean, Rotary Club, Cy Wells, Healey Bus Service, Town and Country Chrysler, Smiths Falls Theatre Group and of course the many Legion volunteers.

SMITHS FALLS SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST CHURCH

Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs Community – The Smiths Falls Community Theatre will open Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs tonight (Thurday, Dec. 5) at 7:30 p.m. at the Station Theatre, 53 Victoria Ave. This week, the cast and crew are on set in preparation for the opening night. Dress rehearsals on Sunday were coming together well, said director Lynda Daniluk. Clockwise from from the top left: the wicked Queen Caligula, played by Sheila Jasiak, plots a scheme to kill the princess with Blackwing, played by Jerry Logan; Snow White, played by Paris Healey, celebrates her birthday with Danny Dumplin, played by Tanner Flinn; watching Stephen McWade as Dame Dolly Dumpling is worth the price of admission as he keeps the audience in stitches. Here Dolly is front and centre stage with a puppy, Fang, that she wants to give the princess on her birthday; Bogwort and Stinkwort, played by Slade Stoodley and Garrett Pipher open their presence on stage with a rap song; and Snow White admires the poison apple she purchased from this “poor peasant woman” who was Queen Caligula in disguise.

United Counties to purchase new ambulances from Crestline Coach Ltd. News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The following are highlights of the regular United Counties of Leeds and Grenville Council meeting held Nov. 21 and the Joint Services Committee of Leeds and Grenville on Nov. 20 are listed below. The joint services committee approved a five-year purchase agreement for ambulances with Crestline Coach Ltd. The agreement will see four replace-

ment ambulances purchased each year for the next five years. The agreement has the pricing on the conversion portion of the ambulances being limited to a 1.5 per cent increase for each of the next five years. The Leeds Grenville Emergency Medical Services Division has established a 10-year capital plan to replace ambulances based on five years or 300,000 kilo-

metres, whichever occurs first. In recent years there has been a marked increase in the kilometres travelled by the fleet. This has resulted in fleet kilometres exceeding the 300,000 range in three years or less. The current fleet of 13 ambulances range in years from 2008 to 2013. The Counties land ambulance service is being renamed Leeds Grenville Paramedic Service effective January 1, 2014,

replacing the Leeds Grenville Emergency Medical Services (LGEMS) moniker. The change clarifies what services are provided and the level of professionalism of those services. The name change was approved in October. Support vehicle for Rideau Lakes The Counties is transferring ownership of a fire support vehicle to the Town-

ship of Rideau Lakes. The vehicle, originally donated by Invista, has sat idle for a few years and would be costly to equip to make it a full Hazmat vehicle. Invista has agreed with the Counties transferring it to a local fire department. The Leeds and Grenville Fire Chiefs sought proposals from the local fire deSee COUNTIES page 26

The annual savings to the Counties is $2,600 based on the 2013 insurance premium. Source water management

Counties council has authorized an agreement with the province for source water protection funding under the new Source Protection Municipal Implementation Fund, a program announced on Nov. 1. The grant program is for municipalities to implement certain requirements identified in source water protection plans. The United Counties have been allocated $52,063 to be used by December 2015. There is an additional

$15,000 in funds for collaborative projects. The grant will help offset direct costs the Counties will have to incur in the next two years as source water protection plans are approved and implemented. There are three watersheds or conservation authorities that have prepared source water protection plans in Leeds Grenville: the Rideau Valley, the Cataraqui River and the South Nation Conservation authorities. All have submitted their plans to

the Minister of the Environment for review and approval. Upcoming meetings Committee of the Whole on Tuesday, Dec. 3; joint services committee on Wednesday, Dec. 18; and Counties council on Thursday, Dec. 19. All meetings begin at 9 a.m. in the council chambers at 25 Central Avenue, Brockville. Submitted by the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville.

Muddsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Humbug delightful retelling of Dickensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; classic Christmas story Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mississippi Muddsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Christmas pantos are a much anticipated, annual fixture on the pre-holiday entertainment schedule in Carleton Place. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production Humbug is an absolute delight! The first of six performances was staged Friday night in the venerable Town Hall Auditorium and those on hand clearly appreciated all of the work that has gone into the 2013 panto. Humbug is a topsy-turvy retelling of Charles Dickensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; much loved holiday story A Christmas Carol. In this version of the classic tale Ebenezer Scrooge has been magically transported from the 19th to the 21st century. Along with Scrooge the original cast of characters has, in the words of the pre-publicity for the show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;been slightly augmented with amusing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; shall we say â&#x20AC;&#x201C; psychedelic actors.â&#x20AC;? No panto is complete without a dame and this show has two of them. Mrs. Slapan (Bryan McManus) and Mrs. Tickle (Laurie Dickson) appear as the bumbling, stumbling ladies from â&#x20AC;&#x153;H.E.L.L.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the acronym for Home for the Elderly Ladies League. The pair offers some very funny moments, especially with their rapid-fire series of â&#x20AC;&#x153;groaners.â&#x20AC;? Their involvement allows the large cast and chorus a little breathing space between scenes. I will readily admit Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a traditionalist, especially when it comes to Christmas standbys such as A Christmas Carol. But director Laurel Tye and co-producers Alina Jacques and Francine Crampton have taken writer Alistair Clintonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s re-worked version and retained the key elements of this uplifting tale of a miserable miserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remarkable transformation. Humbug is played mainly for laughs but musical director Kristine MacLaren has done her usual excellent job of weaving some original songs and other familiar tunes, including some Lennon and McCartney favourites, into the script. Band leader and pianist Peter Brown has a good solo opportunity on Wingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wellknown â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Live and Let Dieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. This is very much an ensemble production. There are 24 in the cast and an additional dozen in the chorus. At times the Town Hall stage is filled to overflowing as virtually the entire company is involved in 10 of the 16 musical numbers. Muddsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mainstay Meredith Millman makes her much anticipated return to the stage in the lead role. She plays Scrooge to the hilt including some great â&#x20AC;&#x153;boo-hissâ&#x20AC;? moments with the audience early in the show when her character is at his miserly, miserable best. Role reversal With two males playing the

leading female parts, why not two females in the primary male roles! Muddsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; regular Trish Smith joins Millman at the top of the cast list. Smith as Charles Dickens, the original author of the piece, narrates the story. Her pleasant style and expressive face really added to my enjoyment of this off-the-wall retelling of A Christmas Carol. Her built-in English accent doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt either! This is a presentation for the whole family with plenty of young actors showing just how much potential talent there is in Carleton Place and district. I particularly enjoyed the work of Connor MacLaren as Tiny Tim, he of â&#x20AC;&#x153;God bless us everyoneâ&#x20AC;? fame. Connor weighs in at just the right moments and his solo effort on the song â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Simple Giftsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was very well done. Of course he has a great example in his mother Kristine. Completing a MacLaren trio in this production is Connorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother Brendan who plays a boy in the street. It is impossible to single out every individual in such a large cast. But Christopher Jones as the hard done by Bob Cratchit has to be mentioned. He handles a demanding role admirably. So does Liz Szucs who swaps sexes to capably tackle the part of Scroogeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s irrepressibly optimistic nephew Fred. Husband and wife team Tony and Judith Scott are also strong contributors. Tony is excellent in his cameo as Jacob Marley, Scroogeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dead partner who returns on Christmas Eve with a harsh warning. Judith is outstanding as the upbeat, straight forward Ghost of Christmas Present. Another strong performance is that of Cait Morton as Belle, who is so cruelly rejected by her fiancĂŠe, a much younger Scrooge. Morton has an excellent singing voice and does so well with the slightly reworked â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Buy My Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which has such a familiar tune. Another musical highlight is the solo effort of Young Scrooge (Muddsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; newcomer Clifford Glas) on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I Want it Allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Mrs. Cratchit is capably played by yet another regular Angela Sotiropoulos. Caitlin Doyle is a delight as the optimistic and brightly costumed Ghost of Christmas Past while Kate Bains is the scary and silent Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. Also front and centre is Mark Piper as the likeable employer Fezziwig. The stage and set team led by Jeff Lee deserve credit for their main street re-creation which features so many familiar storefronts. The six-member costume team has outdone themselves! What most impresses me in this song-filled retelling is that Dickensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; message is retained and well presented. This Christmas season the

Mississippi Mudds underline that family, friends and colleagues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and above all else love â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is far more important than money and material things. The fact this particular show

opened on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Fridayâ&#x20AC;? wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost on me. How very fitting! Following three presentations last weekend, three more are scheduled this weekend. Evening shows are

set for Friday, Dec. 6 and Saturday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. with a Saturday matinee at 2 p.m. Disappointing to see so many empty seats Friday night. Hopefully that situation will

be rectified this weekend? Tickets are available only at the Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce office Call 613257-1976 for information.

Get tested for food allergens and support local food bank at same time By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Community – If you have ever suspected you might have a few food sensitivities but aren’t sure what they are now’s the chance to find out and help a good cause at the same time. New Global Vitamins in Smiths Falls is offering sensitivity testing for the food bank on Dec. 6. “Make a $20 donation to the food bank you get a free food sensitivity test for the top 10 food allergens most people suffer from,” explained Kara Westlake, store manager. The test itself is simple and non invasive and done on-site at New Global Vitamins on Beckwith Street. “It’s based on electro-dermal screening, and you’ll walk out with a report knowing what foods make you weaker and what foods make you stronger,” said Hari Ghuman, proprietor of New Global Vitamins. The store is also accepting non-perishable food items for the food bank but would prefer monetary donations, because Ghuman is on a mission to give children of every socio-economic sector a better chance. “When I hear about kids not getting good food – well I believe in awesome food and believe children should have better food. With monetary do-

nations, I can buy organic baby food at cost and donate it to the food bank because the whole point of this is to give babies the best food possible and a good start in life,” said Ghuman. While he is aware that the food bank can only help families in need with three days worth of food in any given month, Ghuman still believes every little bit helps. So not only does the food bank get organic food to give out to families needing assistance but New Global Vitamin customers and donors walk away with a better understanding of their own health. It doesn’t stop there either. The store also stocks very popular shaker cups for mixing up shakes and smoothies in one handy drinking cup and those are also being featured in a Food Bank Shake-up. “For every shaker cup purchased between Nov. 29 and Dec. 13, customers will receive a $10 coupon for any regular priced item in store and all proceeds from the cups will go to the food bank,” said Westlake. The cups are equipped with an easy to clean steel spiral ball and tight-fitting lid that eliminate the need for a blender. While the store is on a food bank support blitz, it is also worth checking out its increasing selection of foods for the gluten, lactose and egg intolerant family and friends who will arrive as guests this Christmas season.

Lone LCBO store soon to become part of strip mall development By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

News- New development is in the works for Lombard Street at the location of the LCBO. Intervirous Investment Limited has applied to the town for an amendment to go ahead with Phase II of the Otis Lands Development. That development will see an addition running from the current LCBO location towards Lombard Street adding approximately 16,000 square feet of retail space. “Phase I was the LCBO and an adjacent vacant unit, Phase II is going to be a Pet Value and Dollarama and one more unnamed store,” said Niki McKernan, town planner. The developer had to apply to the town for an amendment to the plan of development, because the original plan was to build a sit-down restaurant in Phase II. That plan has been delayed to Phase III and has changed to a drivethrough eatery. “I have concerns over that, because I think the town could use more sit-down spaces, however a drive-through does

make sense in that area of town and it is a permitted use,” said McKernan. The other concern over the second phase had to do with the design of the addition in terms of exterior finish. “The current LCBO building is brick, so I’m asking them to change the proposed stucco on the addition to brick or stone in keeping with the style of the original building,” said McKernan. The planner’s concerns over the look of the new addition were echoed by council members. “I would prefer to see brick or stone to match the original building and I’m glad this has finally come up because what’s there now looked like something waiting to happen,” commented Coun. Lorraine Allen. The company is looking to start construction as soon as possible and expects the project to be completed in five to six months. Once complete the surrounding Photo by HOWAIDA SOROUR land will be landscaped with trees along the road and planters in front of News - The proposed new commercial development extending from the current LCBO location to Lombard Street in Smiths Falls. the stores.

Rideau Environmental Action League seeks new partnership By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL) is seeking $1,500 from the Town of Perth to make it a municipal partner in protecting the environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (REAL) work with everyone,â&#x20AC;? explained REALâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shawn Merriman, during a delegation at the Town of Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committee-of-the-whole meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are really interested in being a true partner. They are not interested in who got the credit, but in results.â&#x20AC;? REAL is based in Smiths Falls, and is most visible here through its five-year-old reuse store (REAL Deal), which sees about 10,000 buyers and sellers annually, of whom 772 are from Perth. Merriman claimed that the store has helped divert about 35 tonnes of waste, per year, from area landfills. The group recently had good news when they were accepted as an electrical stewardship approved e-waste collector. This new initiative is on top of long-standing work they have done. REAL already has existing partnerships with Smiths Falls, Montague Township, and Drum-

mond/North Elmsley Township and â&#x20AC;&#x153;we help our municipal partners by giving them advice,â&#x20AC;? said Merriman, on issues such as storm water management. Their presence is already being felt in Perth, with their Kill-A-Watt metre available for free loans through the Perth and District Union Public Library. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not there to lecture,â&#x20AC;? said Merriman, of his groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interactions with the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are there to give people direction and advice. We are not the police.â&#x20AC;? REAL does not pick up large appliances, but it is in the midst of formulating a five-year plan, and that is one aspect that is being looked at. While council decided to defer the matter to the upcoming budget negotiations, Merriman pointed out that, as far as he was concerned, money for REAL was a good investment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you look at any of the waste we divert, and the work we do in the community, you get a really good bang for your buck,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you guys provide a valuable service,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Jim Graff, who was chairing the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting.

Sports - The Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears had only one Central Canada Hockey League game last week, a loss in a close 5-4 game versus the Carleton Place Canadians on Friday, Nov. 30 at home. In front of more than 700 fans at the Memorial Community Centre, the Bears dominated the first period. They opened the scoring at 10:43 with Taylor Henry finding the mark, assisted by Neil Doef and Brandon Lesway. Domenic Camastra then made it 2-0, unassisted, with a minute to go. The Canadians started to take over during the second period when Craig Pefley scored during the power play at 3:52 with the help of Kelly Summers. Andy Sturtz scored for the Canadians at 5:17 assisted by Stephen Baylis and Evan Peterson, tying things 202. Yannick Crete restored the Bears’ advantage 3-2, connecting on his 10th goal, assisted by Sebas-

tien Barrette and Nic Marchand at 8:16. The Canadians continued the assault at 14:17. Adam Lloyd scored the tying goal, from Brett D’Andrea and Elias Ghantous. They took their first lead 28 seconds later when Elias Ghantous beat Bears goalie Michael Pinios at the 14:45 mark. The Canadians scored what would turn out to be the winning goal early in the third period, Jim Roll doing the honours assisted by Sturtz and Peterson. The Bears fought back with their last goal coming on the power play at 12:15. Leading scorer Victor Beaulac connected on his 12th of the season, assisted by Stefano Momesso with the Bears enjoying a two-man advantage. The Bears pressured for the equalizer but fell just short. Goalie Guillaume Therien earned the win for the Canadians with 31 saves; Pinios was hit with the loss. Stars of the game were Ghantous

4-H launches video to promote outcomes of agriculture summit News – 4-H Canada and Bayer CropScience are excited to launch a new video that highlights the accomplishments of the global 4-H Youth Ag-Summit, which was held this past August in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. As part of 4-H Canada’s 100th anniversary celebrations, 118 young delegates (18 to 25-years-old) gathered from 24 different countries to discuss how their generation can overcome the challenges of feeding a growing world population of more than seven billion people. 4-H members discussed the theme of ‘Feeding a Hungry Planet’ and tackled topics such as food waste, climate change and the growing human footprint, consumer awareness of agricultural practices and farming efficiencies. The final vision that was agreed upon by all the youth delegates was the following: “To increase sustainable access to nutrient-dense food for women and children world-wide to alleviate global hunger.” 4-H conferences, such as the 4-H Youth Ag-Summit, provide opportunities for Canadian youth to expand their knowledge in support of the food and agriculture industry. Members have opportunities to travel nationally and internationally on exchanges, participate in leadership conferences as well as apply for scholarships, grants and awards. 4-H Canada works with all provinces to create clubs in local communities and has an exceptional track record of supporting the development of confidence and leadership among Canadian youth. Fundamental to our mission is the creation of relevant programs that engage and nurture youth. “4-H Canada helps young people thrive in their community and beyond,” says Shannon Benner, chief executive officer of 4-H Canada. “We were very excited to host this world-class event because investing in young people is at the heart of what 4-H does.” “We were very proud to have had the global network to help facilitate bringing these bright minds to Canada,” explained Kamel Beliazi, president and chief executive officer of Bayer CropScience Inc. “We need new and fresh thinking to solve these problems – the future relies on these young minds.” A committee has been created, made up of delegates and mentors from the summit, to fulfill the vision that was created by the delegates. They represent the nations who attended and will act as the support structure to help each individual fulfill their personal goals from the summit. This accountability is essential to ensure results from the global 4-H Youth Ag-Summit are achieved. To learn more about 4-H Canada, visit www.4-h-canada.ca.

Each participant will create a festive Christmas themed centrepiece using designer, and professional techniques to take home and share with others. The cost to attend the workshop is $40 per person. All supplies including fresh

flowers are provided. Bring your friends for a fun and festive afternoon – from beginners to pros all are welcome to create a gift for yourself or for friends. To register, please contact the Heritage House Museum at 613-283-6311 or by

email at heritagehouse@smithsfalls.ca. Pre-registration is necessary. Spaces are limited. Heritage House Museum, located at 11 Old Sly’s Road, Smiths Falls and is open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30

Faux drama scene Community - The Prevent Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth (P.A.R.T.Y.) program travelled from the Ottawa Civic campus to Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute recently to introduce Grade 11 students to what they could face if they engage in risky behaviours. Pictured, a realistic emergency room was created with light, screens and lots of real equipment while one SFDCI student was picked to be the ‘trauma’ patient. The young man was covered in fake blood though his screams and moans were alarmingly real as a trauma team began working on him in front of the other students in this graphic realitybased method of teaching.

Lanark County presents 2013 Awards of Excellence News – A group and an individual were honoured for their contributions to Lanark County on Nov. 27 at the 2013 Awards of Excellence presentation held during regular county council meeting in Perth. The award recognizes and honours citizens or organizations that have made a significant and/or extraordinary contribution to Lanark County. This year the 2012 World Broomball Championships Host Committee was recognized in the Business/ Recreation/ Sports and Tourism category, and James (Jim) Lowry was honoured in the Agriculture/Business/Community Service and Volunteerism category. “These awards are a way for us to showcase people who give freely of their time, enthusiastically promote our county and continue to make it a wonderful place to live,” said warden Bill Dobson (Montague reeve). “The collective ripple effect of the work of tonight’s recipients has been felt far and wide – in our own county and far beyond its borders.” The program began in 2005 as a way to recognize recipients for contributions to the county at large or in at least two municipalities. It was developed to say thank you to citizens of Lanark County, to provide community recognition and visibility, to support citizens for their contributions and to inspire further community service. This year, the World Broomball Championships Host Committee was nominated by Cassandra McGregor of the Township of Beckwith Recreation Committee. Over a period of four years, the host committee planned, organized and hosted the international tournament that was held Oct. 29 to Nov. 3, 2012, which drew 1,000 players from 55 different teams and visitors from around the world. “The committee worked hard to ensure all visiting teams were able to enjoy the culture and hospitality of the hosting municipalities,” McGregor said. This included Beckwith, Carleton Place, Al-

Dobson, right, presents him with the honour. monte and Pakenham in Lanark County, as well as neighbouring Arnprior. This was the first time the championships had been held in rural communities – a rare occurrence for an event of this size and international status. It generated a significant amount of tourism and revenue within the county. “The host committee succeeded in setting a precedent for both future World Broomball Championships and other international events in the participating rural municipalities,” McGregor said.

A focus for the committee was to promote broomball among community members, especially youth, as part of a healthy lifestyle and for growth in recreation, and they did this by working with schools. They also overcame the challenge of helping teams and individuals find accommodations that were within easy access of tournament events. “No one facility in the region was large enough to accommodate an event of this magnitude; it required careful and methodical planning to organize tourna-

ment games between the separate venues,” McGregor said. “The host committee worked tirelessly to ensure that the benefits of rural communities such as Lanark County have to offer were showcased for all to appreciate,” McGregor said. This included a banquet for 1,400 that was “an enormous success” and showcased a harvest theme. “The host committee was very professional and inclusive in planning and carrying out this event,” McGregor said. “They faced every challenge with determination and creativity and always maintained a positive and professional image.” The host committee received letters of support from Joanne Henderson, Carleton Place recreation and culture manager, and Mississippi Mills recreation coordinator Calvin Murphy, who attested to the dedication, enthusiasm and professionalism of the team. Arnprior recreation services director Glenn Arthur said the committee ensured that attendees “left Lanark County with the ‘best ever’ remark as they made their journey home!” Members of the committee include chair George Brown, co-chairs Ruth Brown, John Dalgity and Allan Reid, and committee members Glen Arthur, Paul Watters, Ken Naylor, Kevin Kealey, Jamie Dewar, Ellen MacNaughton, Calvin Murphy, Kevin Lee, Kayla Minkhorst, Rob Munro and Todd Munro. “This team is indeed a role model for others and I am pleased to recognize their efforts on behalf of the people of Lanark County,” Dobson said. Jim Lowry of Almonte was nominated by his daughter, Bonnie Lowry Bagshaw, who indicated a Lanark County Award of Excellence would “further commemorate his time, efforts and enthusiasm for others and the greater community” by the county “in which he is proud to reside.” Lowry, a fifth-generation farmer, was born and lived his whole life on the 9th Line of Ramsay Township. He and his

brother David operate Springlow Farm, which has been in business for 60 years at its present location and currently produces cash crops of hay, wheat, soybeans and buckwheat. He has been married to Sandra for more than 40 years and has two grown children, Bonnie and Neil. Lowry has a lengthy history of community involvement. He has been a director with Lanark Mutual Insurance Company for 33 years, serving two terms as president. He is a founding director of the Lanark County Plowmen’s Association, serving as president in 2002 and 2003 during the International Plowing Match in Lanark County. He has also been extensively involved with dozens of other local boards, associations and organizations, including many in the agricultural sector, as well as health care, historical, environmental and his church. He is also no stranger to political life, having served as a councillor, deputy reeve and reeve of the former Ramsay Township, followed by service as a councillor for Mississippi Mills after amalgamation. He was a Lanark County councillor for nine years. He served on all standing committees at the local and county levels and chaired some, and had numerous appointments to external boards in a variety of sectors. Lowry’s efforts have not gone unnoticed. He was a recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012 and the Golden Jubilee Medal in 2002, along with various awards and honours at both the provincial and local levels dating back to 1975. In a supporting letter, Bonnie McBain of the Dr. James Naismith Basketball Foundation says Lowry’s “name is synonymous with volunteerism. He has spent the better part of his life working on committees and being involved with organizations within the community... His interests are varied but his dedication to each speaks of a man always looking to help his neighbour and make See AWARDS page 38

Everyone’s favourite, this affectionate and good-natured, goofy pup doesn’t quite realize just how large and powerful he is. Highly sociable with all people and most dogs, he knows some of his basic commands, but is eager to

As is typical of his breed, Tyson can be fairly vocal at times, and because he’s so active, he needs plenty of daily exercise to keep him fit and satisfied.

Centennial College finds out what we really think about winter driving

Candles: If you use candles, make sure you keep them away from all combustible materials. Never leave them unattended and place them out of reach of young children. Candles should be placed in solid, secure candle holders and protected by a glass chimney.

I now have just over 200,000 km on it now. I have heard different stories on when to change it. Are there any warnings? What could or should I do to avoid ruining the engine?â&#x20AC;?

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Centennial Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Transportation in Toronto recently commissioned a poll of just over 800 registered Ontario drivers in midNovember on the topic of winter driving and the results show what a love/ hate relationship we have with snow tires. While the overwhelming majority of those questioned (79 per cent) believe that snow tires create a safer winter driving experience, only 53 per cent (province-wide) install them on their own vehicles. In eastern Ontario, that climbed to 69 per cent. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking to blame one sex over the other, forget it; 52 per cent of men use winter tires versus 55 per cent of women. And at 87 per cent, almost everybody got it right in answering that even all-wheel drive vehicles need snow tires. However some separation between the sexes were noted when 47 per cent of female respondents stated they got nervous and stressed about winter driving while only 28 per cent of males felt that way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The vast majority of Ontario drivers know they should use winter tires but only half do so,â&#x20AC;? says Stephen Leroux, Centennial College automotive professor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This truly is a conundrum for all road users.â&#x20AC;? Other interesting results from the poll included: â&#x20AC;˘ 43 per cent stayed home from work or school, 38 per cent cancelled a social engagement and 20 per cent missed a medical appointment to avoid driving in snow; â&#x20AC;˘ 40 per cent of male drivers strongly

CFUW Gift Marketplace enhances house tour Dec. 8 at Best Western Plus Perth By JACKIE BOYER

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In a couple of days the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour begins and it promises to be one of the best! Our eight beautiful homes featured on the tour â&#x20AC;&#x201C; historic, modern and all unique â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have been lovingly decorated to celebrate the holiday season and are now ready to welcome you all this weekend. You can still pick up a ticket ($30) locally from: Home Furniture (18 Gore St. E., Perth), Elizabeth Interiors (8 Chamber St., Smiths Falls), Crush Marketplace (14 Mill St., Almonte) and Pinecone of Westport (23 Church St.). Our second annual CFUW Gift Marketplace, open to the general public, returns again this year to the Best Western Plus Perth Hotel on Sunday, Dec. 8 only in the Stewart Park Room from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you have a house tour ticket, you can also enjoy complimentary refreshments, provided by the hotel, in the adjacent Matheson Hall. The marketplace, part of the house tour event, was a great

success last year and is again full of wonderful gift ideas all produced by CFUW members, their families and friends who have all worked hard to produce sufficient quantities for this event. Some of the favourites returning this year include beautiful smaller acrylic and oil paintings by local well-known artist Suzette MacSkimming; unique custom Christmas decorations and stained glass pieces by Adele Mayers; books by local authors Roy MacSkimming and James Bartleman who will both be in attendance during the day; lovely hand-painted cards and handknitted socks by Barb Mingie; yoga mats by Ashley Morris; and gorgeous pottery by Sylvia Mainguy. New participants this year include stunning jewelry by Sandy MacRae; attractive handmade quilted purses by Jane Farrell; small rugs and small stained glass hangings by Juliette Thomson; a great selection of Christmas wreaths and garlands by wellknown local Sylvia van Oort; a variety of delicious jams prepared by Barb Hannusch; home baked goodies by Judith Young; and we still have a few CFUW

Gourmet Club cookbooks left to sell. CFUW is very grateful to these talented people who are lending their time to this worthy cause, our main fundraiser for the year. All participants are graciously donating 10 per cent of their sales to the Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour with their specific donation earmarked towards an arts program in the greater Perth area. This could be in the fields of music, dance, art or drama. The Canadian Federation of University Women is a voluntary non-profit organization committed to the improvement of the status of women, human rights and to the promotion of education. Since it began seven years ago, the annual Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour has provided more than $90,000 in education funding to deserving women and girls in Lanark County, to libraries, schools and to literacy programs. Take some time this weekend and pop into the Best Western Plus in Perth and enjoy your holiday shopping. You will feel so good knowing that part of your purchase monies will be going towards a very worthy cause.

Disney throws twist into latest animated film Federal government launches 2014 Canada Day Challenge contest MOVIE: Frozen STARRING: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, and Santino Fontana DIRECTOR: Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee RATING: G Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a formula to the modern Disney Princess movie. You need a strong female lead, a story filled with emotion and drama, some wellplaced songs, and a little comic relief. Disney does it very well, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the twist theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given it that makes Frozen interesting. Once long ago Princess Anna (Kristen Bell) and her older sister Elsa (Idina Menzel) were the best of friends. Elsa would play with her sister using her magical powers over ice and snow. Then an accident, that almost caused Annaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, made Elsa withdraw from her sister and hide her powers so she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt Anna or anyone else again. Years passed by as both girls grew up in the palace shut away from the world. After the death of their parents all they had were each other, yet Elsa still kept Anna, and everyone else at arms length. Then the day of Elsaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coronation arrives. Elsa would be crowned queen, and the gates of the palace would be opened for the first time in years.

My Take MARK HASKINS

In all the excitement Anna is swept away by a dashing prince named Hans (Santino Fontana). Elsa on the other hand is doing all she can to stay in control. Then the girls have a fight, Elsa loses her temper, and her powers burst forth. Horrified by what could have happened, Elsa flees to the mountains. There she finally feels free to revel in her power, and see what she can really do. Unfortunately back in the kingdom of Arendell everything has been frozen in a perpetual winter. Anna sets out to find her sister, and along the way gets some help from the burly Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his trusty reindeer Sven, and a strange talking snowman named Olaf (Josh Gad). Together they have to find Elsa and convince her to end the winter. First off Frozen is a breathtakingly beautiful film. It is a true marvel to behold in terms of the interplay of colour and light. The attention to detail and the vividness with

which everything is rendered is simply astounding. Second, the story is a wonderful adventure filled with moments of drama, excitement, humour and love. Third, the characters are brilliant. Each is an intelligently thought out individual with the perfect voice talent behind them. Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, and Santino Fontana are outstanding. The thing I like the most about Frozen is the twist they give to the formula. Yes thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a prince, yes thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the love interest, and yes thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a villain, but none of that is what the story is about. The story is about the two sisters. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about them overcoming their fears, and the ending, without giving anything away, is beautiful. There might have been one song too many, and Olaf was a necessary evil keeping a dark story light, but all in all Frozen is a wonderful film.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, launched the 2014 Canada Day Challenge on Oct. 30.

Stemming the tide of bullying in schools Community Home Support launches Stars of Hope and Remembrance campaign News – Incidents of bullying continue to make headlines. Canada has the ninth highest rate of bullying among 13-year-olds out of 35 countries and suicide of teenage girls has reached epidemic proportions. There are many calls to stem the tide and foster schools and communities that are safe, equitable and inclusive. The question is, how do we do it? Bullying is about power – power over others, loss of personal power, power imbalances, and the abuse of power. Providing information, skills, and adult support are key ways to redress power imbalances at the heart of bullying and all forms of aggression. When young people feel knowledgeable, equipped, confident, and supported, they don’t feel the need to impose their will on others. They feel courageous enough to stand up for themselves, and for others. The simple act of helping them identify and strengthen their own and others’ abilities fosters healthy and equal relationships. Recently, COPA launched new, innovative multimedia resources for students, teachers and parents with the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario. The resources take a unique approach to preventing bullying and discrimination based on a

human rights perspective. In one of COPA’s documentaries on bullying, a student recounts how she told a tormented classmate, how lovely she really is. The classmate replied that this was the most wonderful thing she had ever heard. Another student tells how he stumbled on two others mocking a student with learning disabilities and said, “Hey that’s not cool.” They stopped and walked away. These are simple yet effective ways for young people to change the dial on bullying – those who bully others, are bullied, and those who witness it. (Consider too that many children who bully others are themselves bullied and at higher risk for suicide.) Both parents and educators have a key role to play. Modeling appropriate behaviour, and ensuring that our daily interactions with youth foster acceptance and respect for themselves and others is an important part of that work. Healthy schools are places where students can express their concerns, and feel safe and supported by their peers and the adults around them. These are places to learn vocabulary and have discussions about racism, or why phrases such as “That’s so gay” are hurtful, or how females are devalued when they are subjected to sexist language and sexual harassment. Fortunately, Ontario has in-

stitutions, laws and educational policies working to foster a culture of human rights. Under our Human Rights Code, everyone has the right to be free from discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, colour, ethnic origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender expression and gender identity, and other grounds. Laws including the Safe Schools Act and the Accepting Schools Act promote standards of respect and dignity in schools. The government’s Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy sets out what is taught in schools to ensure students, teachers and staff learn and work in an environment that is respectful, supportive and welcoming to all. Speaking at the launch of COPA’s latest resources, Barbara Hall, chief commissioner of the Ontario Human Rights Commission, said that we have a shared responsibility to help young people realize that they can change the world through their actions. For all of us, a good place to start is to realize that we all belong – and that we all play a key role in changing the world. For more information, visit www.infocopa.com. Lisa Weintraub is executive director of COPA, a non-profit bilingual organization working to create schools that are safe, strong, and free. Sam Hammond is president of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario.

Community – Community Home Support – Lanark County (CHSLC) kicked off its annual Stars of Hope and Remembrance campaign on Dec. 2. This is the second year for the event and the Stars of Hope and Remembrance Tree is dedicated again in memory of George Bernard Foot. After three valiant years of fighting against multiple myeloma, George’s battle ended peacefully and pain-free on Nov. 29. George touched many lives with his courage, grace and sense of humour. He was very much a shining star! The Volunteer Hospice Visiting Service of Community Home Support – Lanark County has been serving clients in Almonte, Carleton Place, Lanark, Perth, Smiths Falls and surrounding areas since 1999. For 14 years, the support of hospice volunteers has helped over a thousand individuals living with a life-limiting illness stay home, in comfort and dignity, surrounded by the people they love. It is an honour and a privilege to provide this service. A client’s daughter recently sent a letter to Community Home Support. She wrote, “You actually sent an angel to me who so kindly volunteered

to visit my mother, without fail, every Thursday until she passed away in July of this year. The volunteer’s visits to my mother gave me that needed break which I so appreciated. I used that free time to go to Kingston with friends for a movie and dinner or to visit my daughter and her family in Kingston, or simply a day on my own to do just as I pleased. The volunteer’s visits served a double purpose – they not only helped me, but were also especially beneficial for my mother who loved the volunteer and always looked forward to her weekly visit. Mom often commented on what a wonderful person she is, so natural and down to earth. ‘She is one of us’ mom would so often say.” A participant from the Bereavement Support Group commented that “the bereavement program offered by Community Home Support – Lanark County is a very valuable community resource. I was fortunate in discovering this program following the death of my wife.

A first for Canada: Rouge Park to be new National Urban Park in Toronto By MARY ROBINSON

Community – John Meek, Heritage Planner for Parks Canada, was the guest speaker for the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) October lecture which took place in Almonte. The theme of MVFN’s lecture series this year is: Knowing and Caring Connects us with Nature and Meek’s presentation entitled, ‘Canada’s First: A National Urban Park in the Rouge Valley’ aligned perfectly with this theme. As background information, Meek summarized the history of the Rouge Park which currently spans 47 square kilometres in the eastern Greater Toronto Area. Meek talked about the movement in the 1990s to protect the Rouge River and its surroundings, the formation of the Rouge Park Alliance by twelve organizations, and the provincial approval of the Rouge Park Management Plan in 1994, which resulted in government commitment and financial support to protect the area. Since then, interest and momentum increased to further protect this unique environment. What makes the Rouge Park unique? For a city park, it has rich environmental diversity including significant geological outcrops from the interglacial age, spectacular vistas, the rare Carolinian forest and numerous species at risk. The area also features rolling hills and valleys, farmland, a campground, a huge wetland, and a beautiful beach on Lake Ontario. There is evidence of human history dating back over 10,000 years within the park. The Rouge River and its valleys,

Left, John Meek, heritage planner for Parks Canada, answers questions following his recent talk on Rouge Park to the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) in Almonte. MVFN’s natural history lecture series, forests and wetlands, along with the animals and plants sustained small nomadic groups, and later on, larger permanent settlements. The remains of a 1600s Seneca village, known as “Bead Hill”, is a sensitive archaeological site within the park which is not presently open to the public. The park also includes an original portage route that was created by First Nations peoples, and later used by early European fur traders, explorers

and settlers. Today, the park includes an active farming community and the only working farms in Toronto. The Toronto Zoo is located nearby and sometimes hikers walking in the woods near the Zoo can hear lions roaring. These are but some of the glimpses of the park that Meek shared, along with many beautiful photographs convincing us that the Rouge Park is, indeed, a very special place.

Knowing and Caring Connects us with Nature, resumes in January. Above, The Little Rouge River passing through Rouge Park in Toronto, in what will be Canada’s first National Urban Park.

Who visits the Rouge Park? Hikers, photographers, families, scientists, students, naturalists, tourists, new Canadians and many others all enjoy the park. Thousands of volunteers and citizen scientists help each year to nurture and protect the area. Planting trees, planting native shoreline vegetation, and monitoring the quality of the streams and rivers are examples of the volunteers’ efforts. In September 2013, the world’s

largest Bio Blitz took place in the Rouge Park; hundreds of volunteers identified 762 species of plants, 225 species of birds, 55 species of fish, 27 species of mammals, and 19 species of reptiles and amphibians. Moreover, in each category several of the species identified are rare either locally or nationally. What activities are available in the See MVFN page 49

The park was the ridge between two branches of the Rouge River dur- topic of a recent MVFN nature talk. allowed to stay on the land and live and work within the new park boundaries. Some other land, which is owned privately, will be excluded from the park. Why will this area be called a National Urban Park and not simply a national park? One key difference is that it will be managed by way of a different conservation approach than that for

national parks, where natural processes like forest fires or floods are usually allowed to take their natural course. This is not possible in the Rouge Park with it being situated within Canada’s largest city. Moreover, the many tenants who are living within the park, the two major highways (401 and 407) running through the park, and its situation close

to public transit for 7,000,000 people all make this a unique urban environment, very different from Canada’s national parks. What has happened since the announcement in the 2011 Throne Speech? Parks Canada undertook a road public consultation program and developed the new National Urban Park concept.

park? People can hike on 18 km of hiking trails and, if they wish, they can take a guided hike. They can canoe, fish, camp, picnic, take photographs, or geo-cache. They can visit some of the working farms, and take part in the many organized events the park offers throughout the year. Basically people come to connect with nature and cultural history. So why is the federal government, through Parks Canada, taking over now? During the last decade or so, people involved with the Rouge Park recognized the lack of a shared vision and the need for more funding and a new governance structure. In 2010 the Rouge Park Alliance completed a governance report which recommended that Parks Canada take over as steward for a national urban park. In 2011 this was cited in the Speech from the Throne and in the 2012 budget, the federal government committed to the further preservation of Canada’s natural beauty through the creation of its first National Urban Park in the Rouge Valley, Ontario. What land will become part of this new National Urban Park? The proposed National Urban Park will stretch from Lake Ontario in the south to the Oak Ridges Moraine in the north – an area that increases the size of the current Rouge Park by 14 per cent. The proposed area would be 13 times larger than Vancouver’s Stanley Park. Land once owned by Transport Canada is now committed to the new National Urban Park. Some of this land is currently occupied by tenant farmers and commercial tenants through various lease arrangements. The tenants will be

Their vision is for a “people’s park” which will conserve national heritage, connect people to nature and history, support a vibrant farming community, and maintain and improve the ecological health of the park. As a “people’s park” it will offer meaningful experiences for visitors with no park entry fees, although there will be fees for some services such as camping. What are the next steps for the establishment of Canada’s first National Urban Park? Meek advises that Parks Canada is working with provincial, municipal, Aboriginal and community partners to develop the management plan which will provide the overarching guidance for the management of the park and will outline the delivery of Parks Canada’s mandate. Once in draft form, the management plan will be shared for public comment. Parks Canada is also working closely with the public landholders towards a land assembly agreement for the lands included in the proposed park area. In the meantime, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority is the managing authority for the existing Rouge Park, and is working closely with Parks Canada and local municipalities to ensure decisions are made in the best interest of the new park. A date has not been set for the establishment of the Rouge National Urban Park, however, the existing Rouge Park remains open and is accessible all year round to visitors. MVFN’s natural history lecture series, Knowing and Caring Connects us with Nature, resumes Jan. 16, 2014 in Almonte. For details, visit mvfn.ca.

Remembering impact of The Band and their ‘last waltz’ second half saw him picking up an electric guitar and being joined by the Hawks. The booing continued and got to Helm who headed back to the US and worked on an oil rig. After Dylan crashed his motorcycle in July 1966 and retreated to upper New York State just outside Woodstock, the Hawks rented a house nearby and started writing what would become their first album Music from Big Pink (1968), with Dylan’s involvement. After trying out names like The Honkies and The Crackers, they settled on what they’d been billed when with Dylan: ‘The Band’. Much of what they wrote back then with Dylan ended up being released by Dylan in 1975 as The Basement Tapes. On they went, continually touring worldwide, recording six albums until 1976 when The Last Waltz was planned to be their last concert, with plans to become a studio band after so many years on the road and its effects. Drugs were a significant factor for some of the players. In 1977 they produced their final album together entitled Islands as a completion of their contract with Capitol Records so they could then have the film directed by Martin Scorsese, and three-record set, The Last Waltz, distributed by Warner Brothers. It’s The Last Waltz that keeps going on my DVD player, probably three or four times a year with all the guests included like Ronnie Hawkins, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Joni Mitchell, and Dr. John to name a few. And who could forget the song ‘The Weight’, included in the film but the clip was actually filmed later, with the amazing Staples Singers, complete with Mavis and her dad, Pops, being

one of my favourite stirring songs of the whole show. Just seeing Pops and his girls and knowing they had been the travelling gospel group with the late Martin Luther King adds just that much more. Being a gospel lover, Dylan’s ‘I Shall Be Released’ as a closer also sits well in my memory with Ronnie Wood and Ringo Starr joining in. Lance Anderson comes through this area with various group formations; most recently in Shakura S’Aida’s band at The Cove and sometimes with drummer Mike Sloski. I tip my hat to Anderson for pulling off The Band and other tribute shows with such quality and obvious love for others music. Hoping to see him come in the New Year with his equally compelling Tribute to Ray Charles. I’ll keep you posted. Ron Hynes concert Most people are starting to count the days until Christmas but mine is coming early. Canadian icon and Newfoundland’s own multiple award-winning singer/songwriter, the legendary Ron Hynes is coming to play in Perth at the Perth Restaurant on Friday, Dec. 13 at 8 p.m. His songs have been covered worldwide by more than 100 artists including Emmylou Harris and Valdy. Recently on Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Café on CBC, just back after a bout of throat cancer, he’s touring again and sounding fine. It’s so wonderful to know he’s still able to do what he loves – play his wondrous songbook for us. Anyone who appreciates stellar songwriting will definitely enjoy this event. Reservations are available by calling 613-267-7902 or visiting the Perth Restaurant. Support live music everywhere.

gospel, rock and rhythm and blues created quite a stir and is recognized by Eric Clapton, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Elton John, George Harrison, Led Zeppelin, Elvis Costello, Phish and many others including, The Beatles and Rolling Stones as having major influence on their own music. The Band cite all having met while attending what they jokingly refer to as the ‘Ronnie Hawkins School of Music’ in that it was where they all met from 1958 to 1963, as members of Hawkins backup band, The Hawks. Toronto is where rockabilly musician, Rompin’ Ronnie Hawkins moved to from his original home in Arkansas at the suggestion of Conway Twitty and won local appeal. Levon Helm, the only original Hawk, was joined between those years by the rest as Hawkins’ handpicked players out of Canadian upcoming groups, effectively nullifying competition for him. They could all play multiple instruments (except Robertson), and were young musicians who were guided and trained through Hawkins tutelage via his strict, long, all night practices held after their shows. They were pushed to technical prowess on each of their instruments and vocal harmonies. Other ‘graduates’ of Hawkins’ education were Roy Buchanan, King Biscuit Boy (Richie Newell), members of Crowbar, Janis Joplin’s Full Tilt Boogie Band (including Richard Bell who later played with The Band), Dominic Troiano and even David Foster, each having stints in Hawkins backing band. In 1964, what was originally entitled Levon & the Hawks, left Hawkins to try it on their own, also recording briefly as Canadian Squires. After Bob Dylan performed his notorious first electric gig at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival with most of Mike Bloomfield’s Blues Band backing, including one of my favourites, Al Kooper on keys, Dylan later hired Helm and Robertson to join Kooper and others to back him on a two-concert US tour. Dylan’s move from acoustic folk to electric was a struggle for many of his attending fans to accept and most shows received lots of booing from the audience. It’s interesting to note Robertson’s guitar stature, at just 23, was recognized as he plays on much of Dylan’s 1966 Blonde on Blonde album. After Robertson and Helm refused to continue without their band mates, The Hawks were hired to back Dylan on a world tour throughout Australia and Europe. Each show’s first half was Dylan performing solo on acoustic guitar and the

Lifestyle – While visiting my folks in Orillia, I was lucky to catch a concert held at the Orillia Opera House entitled, “The Last Waltz – A Tribute – the music of The Band and more”, coordinated by veteran keyboard player/ producer, Lance Anderson. It was a sweet trip down memory lane for me and the packed house, hearing all those songs which were so much of my life’s ‘soundtrack’, back then – triggering many memories that brought smiles to my face. The ninepiece band were primarily session players from Toronto and area who’ve played with everyone in their pasts. Noteworthy was drummer and lead vocalist Jerome Levon Avis – Levon Helm’s godson. Jerome’s father, Bill Avis, whom I spoke with after the show, was the original road manager for the Hawks/ The Band. Though not blood related, having seen Levon a few times myself, you’d think Jerome was Levon incarnate, vocally and drum-wise. The four-piece horn section complete with tuba for certain songs carried it well as did Lance Anderson on piano and lead vocals. Hammond B3 whiz Rob Gusevs and guitarist Terry Blersh also shone, showing their in demand session skills. Several guest vocalists filled the bill including Chuck Jackson (lead singer for Downchild Blues Band). The Weber Brothers – Ryan and Sam proved how timeless this music is. American brothers who came to Canada to play with Ronnie Hawkins as young’uns (as 18-yearolds) a few years ago, finally earned that right and when not with him perform with their own band all over. Johnny Max, another lead singer of his own band gave his all with his gut bucket voice and style. Quisha Wint’s hit it out of the park with her rendition of ‘The Weight’ showing why, in spite of her youth, she’s one of Toronto’s top studio background singers. This was more than just a gig for them. Their devotion to The Band and their music lit up the room. The original concert, The Last Waltz, was recorded on Nov. 25, 1976 (37 years ago) on the American Thanksgiving at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom – the final concert given by one of the most influential groups to come along in those days, being extra special in my mind because all but one of The Band were Canadians. Made up of Rick Danko (died Dec. 1999), Richard Manuel (committed suicide March 1986); the only American, Levon Helm (died April 2012), Garth Hudson and Robbie Robertson; their blend of country,
