The Town of Smiths Falls kicked off Culture Days by officially noting the cultural and heritage value of a local landmark. The Smiths Falls Collegiate Institute Archway located at 2 Gould St. — the location of the previous high school — was officially named a municipal heritage site on Friday, Sept. 30. A dedication ceremony was held with speeches by municipal heritage committee chair William Widenmaier, Mayor Dennis Staples and Coun. Chris Cummings. “What a fitting way to kick off Culture Days,” Staples said. Cummings recognized the Rotary Club of Smiths Falls and Chris Saumure, owner of 2 Gould St., for their efforts to preserve the arch, which was once the girls’ entrance into the school. “The Saumures ensured it would be protected,” Cummings said. “This designation is not just about heritage, but about cultural heritage.” He added that the Rotary Club was the organization that originally spearheaded the preservation project with the Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee (LACAC), which has been replaced by the Smiths Falls Municipal Heritage Committee, composed of Widenmaier, Cummings, Coun. Lorraine Allen, and committee members Kelly Gaston, Arnel Pattemore, Amy Rensby and Anne Shropshire. “This is a true team effort to make sure this happened,” Cummings said. SFCI was originally built in 1911 for 300 students at a cost of $60,000. By 1924, the school’s enrolment had jumped to 418 students. The building was also used as a night vocational school.

Candidates urged to join fight against poverty JOHN CARTER

Society’s most vulnerable are not being properly looked after in Ontario. That was the message three of the four Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington would-be MPPs received during an all-candidates round table in Carleton Place Sept. 22. Liberal Bill MacDonald, the NDP’s David Parkhill and Green Party candidate Nancy Matte attended the session, but Progressive Conservative Randy Hiller begged off, saying he was too busy. Topics such as poverty, unemployment, mental health, transportation, and child care were raised during animated discussions hosted by the Lanark County Planning Council for Children, Youth and Families. At one point it was suggested a new hospital for Carleton Place is the biggest issue in this area, but candidates were assured many people had other priorities. POVERTY Candidates were urged to support programs that tackled poverty. The province isn’t being developed properly when there are people living in poverty, said a representative from Interval House. “There has to be a shift in thinking… we need to address the realities… and stop the revolving door of pov-

erty, parent passing it on to their children. We need compassion.” The province has the money, she maintained. “It’s just a matter of getting it out of a few pockets.” Parkhill said the government should be doing something about the root causes of poverty instead of spending all its energy in trying to manage the problem. “It’s getting worse in the province… it’s totally unacceptable,” he said. He said the NDP would eliminate school fees because they are inequitable. More should be done to help impoverished seniors, he added, noting they deserve more respect than to be ignored or called bedblockers. Matte said the grassroots must lead the way in the fight against poverty. “Passion and community involvement are the only ways to affect change,” she said. MacDonald said the community needs to push together with its MPP on poverty issues. Despite the dominance of urban MPs in the Legislature, a unified community and a strong message will get results for rural areas, he said. Candidates were urged to support another increase to the minimum wage. MacDonald pointed out it was the Liberals who have boosted the wage several times, despite opposition from some businesses, feeling the more money people have to spend the better it is for everyone. The Liberals also boosted tax credits,

brought in all-day kindergarten and expanded training programs, he said. “That’s one thing Liberals do… have a balanced approach.” Former Mississippi Mills councillor Brenda Hurrle suggested a guaranteed income system would be more effective and simpler to administer. UNEMPLOYMENT Interval House project co-ordinator Sarah Bingham said the government needs to better deal with the challenges facing unemployed rural people. Unemployed woman are especially badly off, she said, noting in this area “you can’t just jump on a bus (to go to a job interview or a job).” “There is so little support for transition into the work force,” said Parkhill, noting if a person on Ontario Works has the opportunity for part-time work they should

be encouraged not penalized. Jamie-Lynn Shideler said it is difficult being a rural mother looking for work without gas money or the chance to make enough to afford child care. “It’s easy for a young mom to be isolated because there’s no transportation,” she said. Planning council community co-ordinator Jane Torrance pointed out some parents of special needs children can’t afford to take a minimum wage job because they lose benefits and end up worse off. MacDonald said a mindset change is needed to reflect changes in the work forces that see women qualify, and be paid properly, for jobs formerly limited to men. The new ‘green’, knowledge-based economy will help provide more meaningful jobs, he added. He said he saw first hand the pride of people when they got jobs cleaning up after the ice storm.

SFDCI arch now heritage property From the front In 1951, construction began for a new high school to accommodate a growing enrolment, and SFCI was converted

Can privatization help? Can privatization save Ontario’s health system? Health care was one of the big issues in this provincial election campaign, but the issue of privatization was certainly lurking in the wings of the discussion. Indeed, during a seniors issues forum at the Almonte Curling Club last Wednesday, the issue was certainly a hot topic, with some clear distinctions being made between the candidates. Not surprisingly, New Democratic Party candidate Liam Duff was opposed to the idea, since, he felt, allowing user fees for example, would open the door to a two-tier health care system, with a robust system for the rich, and an anemic system for the rest of us. Interestingly, Progressive Conservative candidate Jack MacLaren, however, appeared to leave the door open to the idea of allowing some private care in. The issue has been in the news provincially as well, with the Ontario Medical Association, which represents 26,000 doctors across the province, floating the idea this past weekend that would allow for some procedures – like colonoscopies, cataract surgeries and hip or knee replacements – to be taken out of hospitals and instead performed at a clinic. Following a visit to the Kensington Eye Institute, a not-for-profit clinic in Toronto this past July, Kennedy wrote in his blog on the OMA’s web site that “Kensington has improved access to care and helped reduce wait times. I think patients and our health care system would benefit if there were more Kensingtontype clinics performing more procedures outside of the traditional hospital setting.” The Ontario Health Coalition, however, paints Kennedy’s comments as being “a cover for privatization.” Already, more than 1,000 for-profit clinics operating across the province. Already, according to the OMA, x-rays, MRIs and ultrasounds are carried out at private clinics. Some locals are already making their views on user fees and privatization known. Jammie Bannon, public education coordinator of the Alzheimer’s Society of Lanark County, noted that, while things like liposuction and elective cosmetic surgery were fine for private clinics, medical user fees “alienates a lot of people who can’t afford medically necessary procedures.” No matter who wins today’s election, one of the first matters to be dealt with is just where we want to draw the line in the sand for private care. Just because it’s private does not mean it’s bad. But neither should we allow the day where we see ATMs popping up in our emergency rooms.

Honour Louie Hart To the Editor, Do you know who is considered by many in Smiths Falls and the surrounding area as the current record holder for most consecutive years as a registered minor hockey coach in Canada? The answer to that question is Ellwood ‘Louie’ Hart. Hart has been coaching minor hockey in Smiths Falls for the past 60 years. He has coached more than 2,000 players in more than 3,000 hockey games: including our mayor Denis Staples, former Smiths Falls Bears assistant coach Roger Cauley, former Lanark County warden and professional hockey goaltender Gary Doyle, and retired NHL hockey player Gary F. McAdam. A He is a man who has given this much to his community deserves to be honoured. That’s why we are asking the Town of Smiths Fall to rename the youth arena to the Hart Memorial Youth Center. Hart has devoted his life to the

youth of Smiths Falls, so why not show him how much his town appreciates him for being a great coach and a great role model to our youth. There has been a group made on Facebook to support the idea of the Hart Memorial Youth Center and its popularity is ever growing. Hart would love to have the privilege to be able to coach his great grandchildren, but that dream could be out of reach. So if he doesn’t get the chance to coach his great grandchildren why not at least give them the privilege to play in an arena named after their great grandfather. Why does it always take someone to pass away before you can honour them? Let’s honour Louie Hart by naming the youth arena, The Hart Memorial Youth Center while he is still around to see it.

There are few pleasures more wonderful in life than sitting down to a table filled with Thanksgiving Day goodies. Freshly roasted turkey, gravy, homemade stuffing, sweet potato, mashed potato, cranberries and all the other fixings that make my taste buds tingle. There is no meal I crave more than my mom’s turkey dinners – which only comes out at Thanksgiving and Christmas; unfortunately, Cristine and I will be unable to leave the area this year. I’ve cooked Thanksgiving Day dinners myself before, but it’s never quite the same, and sometimes, the meals I prepare are down right awful. Several years ago while living alone in Nova Scotia I knew I was going to be away from family, so I tried to cook myself something different for Thanksgiving, a seafood dinner. Completely unfazed by the fact I had no idea how to cook seafood properly, I made my way down to the local grocers and picked up a raw shark steak and a small pre-cooked lobster – something I could only pull off with my budget on the east coast. I threw the lobster onto a plate and began to crack it open while the shark steak cooked in my frying pan. The lobster was disappointing, it tasted really bland. “Why the heck do people pay big bucks for this?” I thought to myself. I’m sure if I had asked for advice from the person behind the counter, they would have informed me that lobster is bland and meant to be dipped in a sauce. “Oh well,” I thought to myself. “At least I can try the shark.” As I complained about the tasteless lobster meat, I failed to check on the shark meat that was now burning in the pan. It stunk up my apartment for a week. I ended up ordering a pizza. By the time Thanksgiving Day came around the next year, I paid for a flight back home and was thankful to sit down and enjoy my turkey dinner again.

Are video games keeping your kids up at night? Do your children have an obsession to scratch a lottery ticket? If you answered yes to either one of these questions, then a teen wellness workshop hosted by the parent council of Smiths Falls and District Collegiate Institute may have some answers for you. Parents can learn more about the signs and symptoms of gaming problems as well as youth gambling problems during a child wellness seminar on Oct. 19. This is one of six workshops that will be available during the evening. “We hope to answer some questions about gaming and gambling problems,” said Brenda Cullen, a youth counselor at Tri County Addiction Services, with offices in Smiths Falls and Brockville and La-

nark Leeds and Grenville. She and Sherry Sheffield, a youth outreach worker, will also be in attendance. Sheffield is from the Youth Gambling Program at Kingston Family YMCA. “Sherry and I often work in collaboration,” noted Cullen, who says she hopes this workshop will help parents who seek answers, help or direction. “Gambling has become accessible and glamourized,” Cullen said, as to one of the reasons why it’s becoming an addiction. “Casinos are a new right of passage when they turn 19.” Cullen says that teens who are addicted to gambling don’t realize they have a problem as their money often comes from their parents or from their own jobs – many don’t have responsibilities like mortgage payments. “They aren’t seeing the ramifications that an adult would have who has an addiction to gambling,” she said. According to an Ontario Youth Gambling Report, issued

in 2009 by the Problem Gambling Institute of Ontario, 42 per cent of the students from grades 7 to 12 surveyed reported that they had taken part in some sort of gambling activity. The top three ways in which to gamble are listed in order: cards, lotteries and casinos. It’s more common for males to have a gambling problem. The study also reports that there are almost 29,000 youth who have been recognized as problem gamblers. “There are many underlying issues that could result in a gambling addiction,” said Cullen. “There could be bullying at school, or a problem at home. We talk about the risks of their behaviour; what it means for the family and how they can get help with it.” VIDEO GAMES For those little gamers who may be resistant to bed time; or combative with parents who suggest they’ve had enough of

the video games, Cullen said there is help for parents in this situation as well. “If your child is addicted to video games, there are signs,” she said. “They don’t want to go to school, they sleep late, defy parents.” Or it’s a social escape for them as they chat with their friends while online gaming, Cullen added. “Parents and children may both become upset… it may become a battle. They may end up not eating properly or not exercising or participating in other healthy activities. It isolates them.” But again, there may be some underlying issues, like bullying at school. Sometimes even aspergers (a form of autism) is present, she said, “and video games are part of their social connection.” For more information on

Finding financing at Funders’ Forum ANDREW SNOOK

Show me the money, or at least, how to get the money. More than 100 representatives of non-profit organizations and municipalities arrived in Smiths Falls to attend “Funders’ Forum” at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre on Tuesday, Sept. 20. The free event lured individuals and organizations looking for new ways to obtain funding, and they were treated to four presentations made by representatives from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), Ontario’s Ministry of Tourism and Culture (OMTC), Ontario Arts Council (OAC) and United Way of Lanark County (UWLC). The event was kicked off by Coun. Lorraine Allen. “Hopefully you’ll be able to go back to your organization better equipped to obtain funding,” she told the crowd. Allen wasn’t the only representative from the Town of Smiths Falls in the crowd. Elaine Mallory, the town’s director of administrative and planning services, attended the meeting and said the town sometimes matches OTF funds for a

variety projects with local organizations. “We recognize this as a real backbone of the community,” she said. UNITED WAY OF LANARK COUNTY The first presenter, Sarah Bridson, executive director of United Way of Lanark County, spoke about how the UWLC has been assisting local non-profit organizations. “We fund all the youth centres in Lanark County right now,” Bridson said. She said her organization currently assists approximately 7,600 people in Lanark County, a little more than one out of every 10 people. In 2011, she said her organization has donated $243,000 to member agencies. She said they currently have 60 member agencies. Bridson invited other local organizations to become member agencies, but she said they must be able to provide the following: an annual report for UWLC, an annual budget, audited financial statements and must be willing to assist in the UWLC’s nineweek fundraising campaign. All the money the UWLC re-

ceives is from donations. ONTARIO MINISTRY OF TOURISM AND CULTURE The second presentation was made by Sharon Proulx, regional advisor for the OMTC. She stressed the importance of reading the guidelines for grant programs available every year, even if an organization has recently gone through the application process. “Guidelines can change so always read them every year,” she said. Proulx informed the crowd about a variety of grants including the Cultural Strategic Investment Fund (CSIF) – which has a maximum grant of $50,000 – designed for populations under 20,000 for cultural, heritage and community outreach programs. CSIF grants cover 80 per cent of a project’s costs. Another grant Proulx spoke about was the Museum Technology Fund, which enables organizations to use digital technology to support economic development in communities with populations under 20,000. A full list of available grants at the OMTC can be viewed at: w w w. m t c . g o v. o n . c a / e n /

awards_funding/funding.shtml ONTARIO ARTS COUNCIL Janice Lambrakos, information services coordinator for the OAC, said her organization provides operating and project grants for non-profit organizations, as well as special programs for professional artists. She said in most cases, the grants presented to organizations are given in conjunction with funding raised from the community. Lambrakos said the OAC has more than 50 programs, in addition to awards and fellowships. She said the OAC’s funding ranges from $500 to $40,000 with the average grant training between $3,000 and $7,000. The programs are divided into various categories including: aboriginal arts, arts education, arts service organization, awards and fellowships, community and multidisciplinary arts, dance, Franco-Ontarian arts, literature, media arts, music, northern arts, organizational development, skills and careers, theatre, touring and residencies and visual arts and crafts.

Plans to open pool at Gallipeau Centre in motion ANDREW SNOOK

Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples made a different kind of splash at the Oct. 3 meeting of Smiths Falls Town Council. Staples announced that preliminary plans are underway to convert the pool at the Gallipeau Centre into a facility for the community. He said he has spoken with the centre’s owner, Joe Gallipeau, and his daughter Tracy, and

they confirmed plans to open the pool. Staples said there would be more details in the coming weeks.

term ending Dec. 14, 2014. The new members are Susan Richards, Glenda Bak and Vickie Dickson. WALKING TRACK CLOSED

COMMITTEE APPOINTMENTS The Local Immigration Partnership Council appointed Yohan Byrde to its council for the term ending March 31, 2012. The Downtown Business Association appointed three new members to the DBA for the

The walking track in the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre officially closed on Oct. 3 to begin the installation of the padded walking track purchased by the town. The walking track is expected to be closed for at least two

weeks before the project is complete. SERVICE AWARDS Town of Smiths Falls works and utilities employees Eric Trodden and Doug South were both recognized for their dedicated years of service with the town. Staples presented Trodden with a plaque for his 25 years of service, and another for South for his 30 years of service.

Funding applications require specific information Continued from Page 10 “It’s very, very rare we can reach the maximum funding,” Fournier told the crowd. Approximately $190,000 is allocated to funding in Lanark County each submission period. Submission deadlines for OTF grants are in March 1, July 1 and Nov. 1. She said any organization that gets turned down for a grant should not get discouraged, and should fix the weak areas in their application and re-apply. Fournier said the grant review team

will offer “real feedback that could help an application the next time.” Fournier said the OTF funds approximately one out of every three dollars requested. Any application will require details of the potential project, including a project budget and items like architectural drawings for renovations or job descriptions if the funding is partially for employment purposes. Fournier said project details should include questions like: ‘Why should we fund your project?’, ‘Who will benefit?’,

‘What will the impact be?’ and ‘Why are you the right organization to do the work?’ “Spell it out and be very, very concise,” Fournier said. “We do not fund where there is no plan for sustainability.” Fournier told the crowd it is vital to show how the project will sustain itself after the OTF funding ends. To check out a full list of available grants and deadlines dates visit www. or for questions call 1-800-263-2887.

PROCLAMATIONS Staples proclaimed the week of Oct. 16 to 23, pornography awareness week, and said town councillors would be invited to sign the white ribbon against pornography on Oct. 16. He also proclaimed the same week spiritual and religious awareness week. Staples also proclaimed Oct. 26, the 11th annual childcare worker and early childhood educator appreciation day.

Bears honour alumni with 3-1 win over Lumber Kings

(Top) Dan Cyr awards the Joel Cyr Memorial Trophy to Bears forward Matt Robertson for top offensive player last season. (Bottom) Bears Goaltender Matt Jenkins turns aside a shot as defenceman Robbie Hall prepares to clear the rebound during first-period action on Sept. 30.


The Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears honoured two fallen members of their alumni the best way possible. The team played its best game of the season to date, and earned a 3-1 victory for their efforts against the Pembroke Lumber Kings on Friday, Sept. 30, at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre. More than 500 people came out to watch the game and the special pre-game presentation made at centre ice. Two former Bears were honoured by having two new trophies named after them by the CCHL Tier 1 hockey club. Matt Robertson, the Bears cur-

rent leading scorer, received the Joel Cyr Memorial Trophy for being the top forward last season. The award was presented by Dan Cyr, Joel’s brother. Dan said his entire family is happy to have the award set up in Joel’s honour, especially his father, Mike, who played for the team in 1966-67. Joel’s life and career were cut short after a deadly car accident. “He’s very proud of it and the Bears organization as well,” Dan said. Nathan Livingstone, who captained the team last season, was awarded the Gerry Lowe Memorial Trophy for being the Bears top defenceman last season. The trophy was presented by Gerry’s widow Elaine, and her grandson Chris.

“It’s an honour,” Livingstone said. “I was definitely fortunate to know him.” Elaine performed a ceremonial puck drop to start the game. The Bears jumped ahead early in the first period when Robertson tapped a shot past Lumber Kings goaltender Francis Dupuis on the power play to put Smiths Falls up 1-0. Pembroke countered with a power play goal in the final minutes of the first period on a goal from forward Ben Dalpe to tie the game 1-1. Smiths Falls struck quickly again in the second period, when forward Nolan Trombetta fought off a defender and beat Dupuis low to put his team up 2-1. See ‘Penalty trouble’, page 23

Smiths Falls This Week - OCTOBER 6, 2011



23 Smiths Falls This Week - OCTOBER 6, 2011

Bears fight off penalty trouble to secure victory From page 22 The Bears got into some penalty trouble in the second period and found themselves fighting off a 5-on-3 Pembroke power play; but the penalty killers were successful and Smiths Falls held on to their one-goal lead heading into the final period. The third period seesawed back and forth with a lot of open ice action, but it was the final two minutes of play that brought the best scoring opportunities to both teams. With the final minute of play ticking down, and the Pembroke goalie pulled, the Lumber Kings were putting pressure on the

Bears in their defensive end; however, Smiths Falls forward Connor McLaren rushed up the ice broke past a defender, and while falling to the ice, guided the puck into the empty net to secure the win. “Hopefully this starts something up,” he said. “If we keep the momentum from this game hopefully we will pick up the ‘W.’” Bears goaltender Matt Jenkins stopped 23 of 24 shots in his best game of the season, where stopped several good scoring opportunities, including a quick pad save in the second period off Pembroke forward Liam Biard.

Smiths Falls head coach Mark Grady said he was happy with his team’s overall performance, particularly between the pipes. “That was the best game we’ve had in net,” he said. “We’re doing a lot of things better. If they work hard every game they’ll compete.” BEARS NEXT HOME GAME The Bears next home game will be against the Kemptville 73’s and will take place on Friday, Oct. 7, at 7:30 p.m. at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre.
