He likes the hard to get to places, finding the most remote places when it comes to getting away. The British Virgin Islands are his favourite “get away” where hockey pucks are as strange as snow. Rogers Hometown Hockey debuted in 2016 and the grind that takes the pair and crew across the nation was building towards the play-off push last month, here in Cornwall. Ron MacLean will be known for

As we all posed for a picture with Tara before she left, I had to wonder out loud, and chuckle about how many people would, and already had, uploaded their selfie with her during Cornwall’s HTH weekend. “Just a few” she quipped with a look that said it all, while her smile did the rest!

Local Athletes Attend RBC Olympic Training Event By Angela Aubin

S

ix local young athletes attended the RBC Training Ground event held at Queen’s University in Kingston on March 24th 2018. RBC Training Ground is a national program created in partnership with RBC, CBC, and the Canadian Olympic Committee with the purpose of identifying and supporting the next generation of high performance athletes in Canada. These six young female athletes tested their power, their speed, their strength, and their endurance in front of top coaches and sports officials in Canada. Their results have been compared to national sports-specific performance benchmarks. All of these young local athletes have achieved above average and average results in comparison to these national benchmarks. It was truly a wonderful experience to see my daughter compete with other athletes with similar goals. The support displayed by all the athletes for each other was inspiring. One hundred of the top finishers at the local qualifier events will be asked to attend the Regional Finals held in Toronto.

MOM of the month

Tammy Larin

This issue’s Mom of the Month is Tammy Larin of Cornwall. Tammy is currently the Recreational Director at the Cornwall Gymnastics Club and a competitive gymnastics coach. She certainly has the background for it: She’s been coaching since the age of 16 and was a provincial competitive gymnast herself. Tammy coached the fledgling St Joseph’s Panthers gymnastics club for two years and had athletes compete at the OFSAA level during both seasons. This year she’s on sabbatical from high school coaching to complete the Social Service Worker program at Saint Lawrence College. “Gymnastics has always been part of my life,’ she says. “I love the excitement of seeing my athletes achieve their personal goals.” Tammy is still busy with sports. She has two daughters, two step-sons, and two grandsons. Her daughter Sydney Seymour is a national level 7s rugby player at the u18 level. “Sydney keeps me the busiest,” she laughs. Tammy and Sydney recently returned from Langford, BC, where Sydney was part of the team that won Ontario’s first ever gold medal in women’s U18 rugby. “I’m lucky I have help,” she says. “My mom is there when I can’t be.” Her mom is Lyne Bergeron.

officer, where he quickly got involved in the lacrosse community. He became the assistant coach of the junior a Sherwood Park Titans in 2015. From there, Blanchard went on to become the head coach of the Midget ‘B’ Blue Lacrosse team in 2017.

J

ames Blanchard has been deeply involved in athletics for most of his life. He began playing lacrosse when he was five years old and continued to play up until his last year of eligibility, age twenty-one.

“I have since accepted the head coaching position of the Bantam ‘A’ Parkland Posse and this will be the first year I am involved in the organization,” says Blanchard. “Ever since my last game of junior in 2013, I always wanted to stay involved in the game. Coaching has allowed me the opportunity to do so, and I wouldn’t be involved if it wasn’t for my previous experiences in the sport.”

Blanchard played his minor lacrosse with the Cornwall Minor Lacrosse Association under the same three coaches throughout; Rick Fillion, Jack Ruest and his father Perry Blanchard. His junior career was split between two teams; the Junior B Cornwall Celtics and the Junior B Akwesasne Indians. “Growing up, I recall taking weekend road trips with my father and some buddies a few times a summer to go check out lacrosse games in the Toronto Area. Watching these games allowed me to learn a vast majority of my lacrosse knowledge I have today,” says Blanchard.

Ruest, and especially my father, Perry Blanchard made me want to become a coach once my playing days were over. I was extremely fortunate to have them as coaches as they implemented the importance of commitment, hard work, discipline, positive behaviour, perseverance, and accountability,” says Blanchard. “Perry, Rick, and Jack allowed me to understand the value a coach has in not only for the players behaviours on the floor or in the dressing room but outside the rink as well. They emphasized being a good role model in the community and bringing a positive attitude to the rink. Without their teaching and guidance I would not have the knowledge of the game as I do today.” Blanchard got involved with coaching because he wanted to give back to the game, especially in Alberta. “Ontario and BC are powerhouses Continued on page 8

when it comes to lacrosse skill and development; Alberta is not quite up to par. I want to see that change and it begins with teaching proper skills and lacrosse I.Q. at the younger levels,” says Blanchard. “I feel we are on the right path to becoming on the same level as Ontario and BC when it comes to lacrosse and I wish to be an influential part of that success.” Currently, Blanchard is coaching the Parkland Posse Bantam A lacrosse team. “There are only four levels of lacrosse; A B C and D,” says Blanchard. “Three associations in the West division of Edmonton combined to make the Parkland Posse.

In terms of his favourite coaching memory, Blanchard has a great one. “My favourite coaching memory would stem from coaching with the Sherwood Park Junior A Titans. We were in a rebuilding year, with approximately 10 to 12 rookies in the line-up every night,” says Blanchard. “In the middle of the season, we went on to beat the powerhouse Okotoks Raiders, who ended up playing in the Minto Cup (Canadian Junior A Championships) that year. They had a stacked team and we were a team with a bunch of rookies. It was a huge upset, one that I, nor the players, will ever forget.” Blanchard is an incredibly dedicated coach and we can’t wait to see what this season brings for him and his team.

Rogers Hometown Hockey rolled into Cornwall March 17th and 18th, putting Cornwall on the national stage during a Jets vs Stars nationally televised hockey game. What did you think of the show, and how did Cornwall fare?

Sports Energy Greater Cornwall & Areas Community Sports Newspaper

Gilles Gaudet - Sports Enthusiast - I’m sure all Cornwallites who tuned in to watch Hometown Hockey’s tribute to our city felt a sense of civic pride. It’s not often that we’re honoured nationally and Hometown eloquently captured some important historical facts, and provided insight into some of our personalities in the sports arenas. In fact Hometown Hockey is a first class operation, as witnessed by their exceptional set-up of stages and displays at the Civic Complex parking lot. They made the weekend about involving everyone from children to seniors, and we should be grateful for the opportunity to showcase our city. It’s easy to be negative, and there are enough blogs and some news outlets that continually try to spin Cornwall as a substandard place to live. In fact, we have a rich history of being an industrial town where people have worked hard and played hard to make Cornwall a great place to raise a family. Hopefully as our city diversifies in both industry and more importantly in our people, we take the time to enjoy our sports and continue to make sports an integral part of our community. So thank you, Hometown Hockey, for chronicling our rich sporting history, it’s something that we’re very proud of! Jake Lapierre - Conditioning Coach -Hyped for Rogers Hometown Hockey. What an event; a great chance to meet former NHL players; hear stories of local hockey legends, to kindle that spirit, that love for the game of hockey. My aunt Pierrette MacDonald even grabbed an opportunity to snap a pic with Ron MacLean and proudly display it on Facebook. Attendance at the Colts’ game on Thursday was higher than usual. Rogers Hometown hockey has been showcasing towns from around the country and I’m proud Canada had the chance to meet the City of Cornwall. Great job to the city and everyone involved. Cornwall fared very well… Jim Riddell - Seaway Karate Club - Cornwall is fortunate to be one of only twenty-four communities from across Canada chosen for Rogers Hometown Hockey tour. Rogers’ co-host Tara Slone stated “It’s amazing to me that we are on season four and still have so many wonderful places in this country left to discover”. The cold weather may have had some impact on the crowd, but there were still many kids of all ages walking around wearing jackets and jerseys from various area teams. There was something for everyone, - a chance to see three hockey games, music, shows, and activities. Former Sens’ player Chris Neil was on hand signing autographs, as was Shayne Corson who had played for the Canadiens, Maple Leafs, and the Oilers. This weekend gave Cornwall a chance to showcase its hockey heritage, gain some positive exposure, and show people that “Yes, Cornwall is a hockey town”

it was a great opportunity to teach our youth that they can give back to their community while having fun and playing the sport they love. Four teams played for different local charities; Rachel’s kids, OSPCA, Agape Centre, and Beyond 21. A donation of $350 was made to Beyond 21 on behalf of the Seaway Valley Blazer Players.

I liked being with all the girls.” The camaraderie among the high school players was something that she will remember. Ally was a key piece of this year’s St. Joseph Panthers

Wall of Heroes Newest Addition to Hall of Fame By Bob Peters

A

new light is shining on Cornwall’s athletic heritage, and it has never looked better. The Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame is putting the finishing touches on a major renovation with includes new exhibits, new lights, and a new presence in the Civic Complex.

“The time was right to refresh our exhibits and shine the light on some incredible achievements by Cornwall athletes that date from today back to the 1800s,” says Thom Racine, president of the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame Board of Directors. The

major

change

is

development of a Wall of Heroes that profiles 48 different athletes from several different sports. Each athlete is featured with a poster that includes a photo and a brief description of their accomplishments. The posters line the main concourse at the Complex and include past and present stars such as Tony Luis, Jenna Flannigan, Christina Julien, and Moe “The Toe” Racine. One poster features Duncan McNaughton who won the gold medal in high jumping in the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles – the only Canadian to ever win gold in the event.

“The primary exhibits are the downstairs, so having this main floor Cornwall’s Oldest Paint, Blind & Shutter Store. Family owned Business Since 1988

space helps to entice people to further explore the Hall of Fame,” says Mr. Racine. “The posters complement the murals painted along the interior concourse that feature some of our hockey stars such as Lori Dupuis, Newsy Lalonde, Dale Hawerchuck, and Doug Gilmour. It is nice to prominently feature other sports on the main floor.”

One of the new exhibits is the original clock face of the scoreboard that kept score for thousands of games at the Civic Complex. The face was salvaged when the scoreboard was replaced in 2016.

Most of the improvements were in place in time for Hometown Hockey Other improvements to the Sports which arrived at the Complex March Hall of Fame include a renovation of 17-18. the main exhibit hall, along with new The Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame artifacts, and a redevelopment of the Cornwall Royals’ showcase on the is open 7 days a week.

Saying Goodbye to Moe “The Toe” Racine

I

said an earthly goodbye to my dad last month. He died after a long, and often suffering, battle with diabetes and its symptoms and side affects and body breaking tentacles that sucked the life out of one of our sporting legends. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be the one to write this final goodbye, there really was not much more I could say, his death was covered nation-wide, associated press outlets across the world posted the story and even cruise ships printed the sudden passing of the former CFL player and Canadian Football Hall of Famer. Condolences had poured in and tributes made us further understand that celebrity has no peace. ‘Moe the Toe’ had died and people wanted to say good-bye. Two pieces of fan mail arrived while dad was in hospital and both wanted autographs for their collections. Dad signed about a dozen a year, he loved to see who and where people were from, in this case British Columbia and Ohio. Seeing those letters took me by surprise, Dad was not going to sign those cards, he was really gone, and it was time to finally accept the man who made us all laugh and the man who rarely if ever boasted about his life, was now no longer the living legend of years gone by. After Dad took his final breath, I decided (with family approval) to prepare a eulogy. I would not be the first son to eulogize their father, nor would I be the first to try and get through it without coming apart. I practised it for days leading up to the moment and felt comfortable in standing up in church in front of family, friends, and peers to deliver it. I started off with the person, the husband, father, and grandfather. It covered our life, his football life and beyond. Printed below are the final few paragraphs. Thanks Dad, what a life you gave us, your home town, and a plethora of fans and friends.

Look back on your life tonight and ponder what you have done and accomplished. You will look into the mirror and be proud of your family, career, and future. Our father too, could do that. If he let his mind wander last week, he could look back and hear his mother pushing him to play the strange game with the funnyshaped ball. He would see Donat Poirier chasing him down the hall at St. Lawrence during the first week of high school in 1953, ushering his giant frame into Art Anderson’s office and pretty much forcing him onto the football field. Then the Emard’s junior football coach John Bove telling him to go to Ottawa in 1958 for a four day tryout and never coming home. Frank Clair declaring, “Moe, I think I’ll make a lineman out of you.” He would hear Bill Smyth a few years later yell, “Holy…..” after watching Dad and Gary Schreider kicking after practice one day. He would see himself staring at the Mountains of North Vancouver as he got set to kick off in a Grey Cup game just two years after leading the St. Lawrence Saints to their third straight High School championship. Then, the day his father went to the only game Hector ever went to, in Montreal, and watched as his great big son booted a last second game winning field goal and almost put the ball on his dad’s lap.

He would see the years roll along, the powerful Rough Riders teams of the sixties and their Grey Cup appearances, his scoring championship in 1966. Proudly, he would fast-forward to 1973 and the team of “No Stars” that would win the Grey Cup and yes, he might even tear up as he sees the iconic picture of himself hoisting the Grey Cup one last time. He would then fast forward forty years to his Hall of Fame induction and remember, not the overdue validation of his career, but the journey; the journey of a big athlete, who had an even bigger heart. Dad always said his kids knew more about his career than he did… but he might reflect on 213 career games, 36

play-off games, 5 Grey Cup games— winning 4, and think to himself, not bad for a kid from Belmont St. A kid who never dreamed of such a life, was never in it for the praise, but earned the praise with every footfall on those rugged fields of play. That’s what made you a legend Dad! That’s what the accolades that have poured in from across the country this week have proven. You left a legacy for a nation of football fans, your hometown, and your family. Dad, you never cheated your body, it cheated you, far too soon for any of us to accept. Long live the memory of Number 62; long live the legacy of “Moe the Toe,” our husband, father and grandfather.

Justin Lalancette Talks Sports and the New Buick Regal Sportsback By: Molly Kett

T

wenty-three-year-old Justin Lalancette is a bilingual Cornwall native who started working for Seaway GM in January 2017. Not only does Lalancette have a passion for cars, but he also has a passion for sports. Lalancette plays hockey on a weekly basis, enjoys skiing, and is also very into automotive racing. “I’m strapped into a race car on a weekly basis all summer at the local Cornwall Speedway and a few other tracks of the area,” says Lalancette. “Racing keeps me busy for about eight to ten months a year, it’s either we are at the racetrack or getting the race car ready. I started racing when I was about 5 years old and never took a year off since, now competing in the Sportsman Division. I will be racing again come may this year.” With such a strong passion for automotive racing, it only makes sense that Lalancette would choose to pursue cars as a career.

Photo Submitted “I have been in the sales department for a few months and really enjoy getting to meet new people and sharing my love for the GM brand,” says Lalancette. “My employment at Seaway GM was the ideal fit for me as I am with people that enjoy cars as much as I do. The dealership has the same values and treats its customers the way I would want to be treated.” This month, Lalancette is featuring the all-new Buick Regal Sportsback. “The colour of this Buick is the Smoked Pearl Metallic, with an Ebony interior. One thing that makes this vehicle special

is the 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder engine. Not only does it have plenty of get-up-and-go, but the 9-speed automatic transmission makes it smooth sailing to the destination of your choice,” shares Lalancette. Lost on the road? No worries! This new Buick Regal Sportsback comes with navigation features as well as a variety of other appealing features that make this car an excellent choice. “It is all new and redesigned, has a sporty look as well as many options and features you will find useful and enjoy what makes the vehicle stand out is this

legendary name, the Buick Regal. It is very well known in the automotive industry but with its all-new look, it is now sporty-looking and is an attractive ride,” says Lalancette. Lalancette also says that the Buick Regal Sportsback has a quiet cabin that makes the Bose sound system crisp and clear. He also says that the hatchback feature allows plenty of space for a variety of items, perfect for a family. “For families with younger children that may be into hockey, lacrosse, football, or other sports, the all new Buick Regal has a hatchback trunk,” says Lalancette. “Also plenty of room for Grandpa’s golf bag! The front of the all-new Buick Regal has aggressive futuristic lights, which add to the bold look of the vehicle.” If you have questions, or this sounds like the car that you’re looking for, head over to Seaway GM. “Come visit me, as I would love to share this experience and my passion of cars with you,” Says Lalancette.

Huddle UP! Spring is Here: Nice Weather Brings the Start of Football in SD&G! With Coach Kirby Camplin

T

he Seaway Valley Spring House League has been in our community since 2007. Both the Cornwall Wildcats and Alexandria’s Glengarry Gaels offer athletes aged seven to sixteen the opportunity to learn to play football, locally. Depending on age level and size of registrations, teams are organized into

either ‘6on6’ or ‘9on9’. This means there are either 6 or 9 players on the field at one time, not the traditional 12 players. Reduced team sizes are an advantage for new players as it offers them an opportunity to learn and play positions on offence and/or defence.

Teaching the fundamentals is the main focus of spring league. The importance of learning the basics of football is stressed at all age groups. Teaching players how to tackle and block safely, catch, run, throw a football, and to learn

a specific position are all part of the experience. As a bonus, football has long had a tradition of providing equipment to players. Helmets, shoulder pads, padded game pants, and mouthguards are provided to all registered athletes. Football teaches so many important life skills and it is the ultimate team sport. Each athlete on the field has a specific job, and every athlete is important. Working together as a team increases the odds of success in football, and life. The best part of football is

athletes of all shapes and sizes can be the star of the team! The Wildcats start practices on Sunday April 1st at the Benson Centre in Cornwall. Outdoor practices for spring league are two days a week and games are held on Sundays. The actual season runs May and June. Football is an allinclusive sport and the Wildcats are looking for athletes of all shapes, sizes, and athletic ability. Please visit www. cornwallwildcats.com for more info. See you on the field!!

Two Players Represent Team Canada at IIHF Global Girl’s Games By Victoria Klassen

S

ara O’Brien asked her dad every day if there was any news if she’d been accepted to play hockey in the IIHF Global Girl’s Games. When her dad called to tell her the good news, she jumped around the living room in joy, scaring her brothers in the process. Sara and her teammate, Karahkwenhawe White, were both chosen to play for Team Canada at the third IIHF Global Girl’s Games. The Global Girl’s Games involved 38 countries hosting games around the world on March 10 and 11. The Canadian game was the last one to take place. Team Canada selected 40 young female athletes from across the country to play for Team White and Team Blue. Sara and Karah play on the Cornwall Girl’s Hockey Competitive Bantam B Typhoons team during the regular season. They travelled to Mississauga for the Global Girl’s Games. “The best part of my trip would have to be going to the Hockey Hall of Fame with a women’s hockey

Olympic gold medalist,” expressed Sara. “The game on Sunday night was also very exciting and a great experience. Angela James, the Olympic gold medalist, was my coach.” The girls also visited Niagara Falls and enjoyed some team bonding with their new teammates. Karah played for Team Canada white/red and Sara played for Team Canada blue/black. “The game went smoothly. There were good girls from all over Canada. Both teams were pretty even. The best part was getting to meet new people and make lasting friendships,” Karah said, who plays defence and forward.

“It was nice to meet new indigenous people from around Canada who play hockey. I am also indigenous I live on a reservation along the border of Canada and United States called Akwesasne.” Sara and Karah, both 14 years old, have big goals for the future. Karah hopes to be scouted for hockey, go to university on a scholarship, and study architecture. Sara said she wants to play hockey in the Olympics and pass along her love for the game to her Sara O’Brian L, and Karahkwenhawe White  future children and grandchildren.

Lemire a Repeat Hoople Tourney Champ

illiamstown’s Joey Lemire has had great success at the Lost Village’s Ice Fishing tournament over the past few years. His success comes from years of experience fishing.

When he’s able, Lemire enjoys all forms of fishing. “I just can’t seem to get enough of it,” he says. “I love to go fishing with my dad. Even though he gets mad that I catch more fish than him. It’s a good bonding time… to be able to share the same passion. I don’t have a permanent hut, I have friends that do. I like to be mobile. It gives more opportunity to fish different areas. I wouldn’t say that I’m a regular on the (Hoople) bay, perhaps only in the winter months. I like to fish other bodies of water.”

“I’ve been fishing in the tournament with my family and friends since it started,” says Lemire. “I grew up fishing with my dad and uncle JP.” Lemire captured the biggest fish of the day at the 2018 Lost Villages Ice Fishing tournament in February. He retells the story of landing his 8.3 pound pike. “The bite started around 11 a.m. It snowed all morning and my dad had caught the first pike (seven pounds) and on our way back from the weighin, my uncle was fighting another pike on a another tip-up. I stopped the snow mobile beside the hole and helped my uncle with his fish but we lost it at the hole. I could tell that it would have been a large fish. We had to re-tie two tip-ups and then went into the shack to warm up. Within 15 minutes another flag was up on the tip-up. I ran out and called my dad and noticed that it was taking a lot of line. I put the brakes on the fish and I could feel it pulling through the weeds. I got the fish to the hole and cut my fingers in the process of pulling him out of the water. I got the fish out and it was barely hooked. I knew it was much bigger than the one my dad caught. I had a good feeling that it would be a winner.” Joey’s pike ended up as the largest

There have been plenty of exciting fishing stories along the way. Lemire’s favourite is dedicated to success had from a friend. “If I had to pick one (favourite story) it would be when I took a co-worker out on the St Lawrence River in Cornwall and he was able to catch a 48” and a 52” musky in Williamstown’s Joey Lemire has enjoyed success in recent years at one evening.

two largest pike of the day but as per tournament rules could only register one and won with an eight-pound pike. Last year he came in second place with a pike weighing 6.8 pounds. Gerry Lemire finished third in the perch category last year.

The largest fish Lemire has landed are a 50” musky, a six-pound small mouth bass, and an eight-pound pike and walleye. His bucket list fish are a brown trout for fresh water and a tuna for salt water. Meanwhile he will continue to enjoy the fishing locally.

“It felt great to get first and third place. It makes me think that we are doing something right and not just being lucky… we’ve been placing in this tournament for the past three “There is great fishing in the years.” Thirty-seven-year-old Lemire Cornwall area and there are lots of Two years ago Lemire caught the works with Caterpillar in Ottawa as big fish to be caught,” he says.

Focus By Jim Riddell, Seaway Karate Club

I

n the previous five Karate Komments columns we have been discussing the physical attributes or components that must be developed for one to become proficient in the art. The sixth and final attribute, focus, may not be physical, but without it a student will never achieve his or her potential. Working on those five physical components, speed, power, timing, balance, and co-ordination will over time help the student to develop mental fortitude and focus. Karate is an individual sport where staying focused for long periods is important as students are participating 100% of their class time. It is also a sport that provides a good mix of anaerobic and aerobic activity that will help to relieve any stressors or irritations that may have built up during the day. It is important that instructors recognize when a student loses focus and to implement a plan to get them quickly back into the groove. Our instructor team at Seaway Karate follows the four P’s. 1) Focus on the Positive; - any mistakes should be viewed not as a negative, but an opportunity to improve. 2) Focus on the Present - put emphasis on the material that needs to be worked on at that particular class. 3) Focus on the Process – keeping both individuals and the class on track 4) Focus on Progress - The progressive belt system is a great means of developing focus as it is a series of small goals (coloured belts), leading to a larger goal of eventually earning a black belt. With each belt earned, there will also be an improvement in the attributes, both the physical and mental. In the previous columns we looked at specific karate drills used to target each of the physical attributes, here is a way to help improve mental focus. Visualization or mental imagery has been used by athletes from various sports as a means of enhancing performance for several decades. Two prime examples of elite athletes who also used this technique were golfer Jack Nicklaus and boxer Muhammad Ali. Nicklaus, before each shot would envision his swing, the flight of the ball, and the ball landing exactly where he wanted it to. Ali, while during his early morning roadwork would envision his opponent running past him. He would use that as a motivational tool to train harder, ensuring that he had the conditioning required to get him through the late rounds of a championship fight. Martial artists Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris both had success using visualization techniques, with Norris using them for both fighting and kata. So how does this work? Using at least three of your senses (more if possible) and kata as an example - have a seat, close your eyes and do a kata in your mind. 1) Visualize that perfectly executed kick. 2) Feel your feet slide over the floor into the next stance. 3) Hear the snap of your sleeve as you fire out that reverse punch. As you are sitting relaxed in that chair, you will get a slight neuron response in your muscles as you execute those punches, kicks, and stances. This practice will be beneficial in helping you to reproduce them later with improved form. A few years ago one of our club members had to write a university exam the day before she was to compete in the kata division of a tournament. With no time for karate class or even home practise in the two weeks leading up to her exam, she managed to find the time to visualize herself performing the kata at the tournament. Not only did she ace the exam, she also took first place in the tournament. Targeting the attributes – speed, power, timing, balance, co-ordination, and focus is one of the keys to becoming a successful martial artist

Great work and congratulations on behalf of the SCFSC, in your competing and representation of our Club! Kudos on all of your hard work and dedication to your sport, skaters!

ASK THE COACH

Olivia Kennedy

Grade: 10 School: St Joe’s Sport: Volleyball Question: to St Joe’s volleyball and assistant badminton coach Don Mitchell

Why do you coach volleyball and how did you get started?

Answer:

I’m not sure how I initially became interested in volleyball. It was way back in grade 10 at CCVS when I decided to try out for the junior team. I was hooked – I played all the way through high school. I refereed through high school and university, and started coaching in grade 13. Since then, I have been teaching, coaching, and playing for 32 years. My biggest playing thrill was beating La Citadelle in a very hardfought battle at the SD&G final in 78-79. I’ve always stayed a player, playing in men’s and mixed competitive and recreational leagues while living in Grande Prairie. I coach because it’s one of the best ways to encourage students outside of the class room, and it’s a way for me to say thank you, and to give back to all those teachers who gave their time to coach me.

Tyler Fitzgerald Returns from Sweden and Accepts a Hockey Scholarship to East Texas University “I never felt homesick, I felt like I was with my family every day being with the boys,” says Fitzgerald. “I loved the food in Sweden, so natural and flavourful…everyone was so welcoming and I totally suggest it to anyone looking to further their hockey careers.”

By Molly Kett

L

ocal Athlete Tyler Fitzgerald has returned from his year away from home, playing hockey in Sweden. For Fitzgerald, the experience is something he will never forget.

“I had the opportunity to play for two different organizations. For Kungalv hockey and Stenungsund HF. I started off in Kungalv and had an amazing two months there before getting a better opportunity with Stenungsund,” says Fitzgerald. “I was able to play men’s hockey with both clubs, experiencing a totally new way to prepare and play the game.”

At the beginning of his time in Sweden, Fitzgerald was hoping for an extension so he could continue playing and living in Europe. Come January, though, he began to have talks with his family and decided that it was time for him to get a degree and go to school.

We can’t wait to see what the “I had many offers to play college future holds for Fitzgerald and his hockey and decided it would be hockey career.

At first, Fitzgerald was able to stay with friend, but eventually was given a house to live in with other North Americans playing in Sweden.

Hustler of the Month

“To play over there gives me such a different approach to how to prepare and play the game,” says Fitzgerald. “You would show up two to three hours before the game and you could feel the intensity and preparation of every single person when you came to the rink. Whether it was management or a player everyone had a thought on their mind and that was the game.” Fitzgerald says that Kungalv was a strong and well-organized team with only Swedish players on the roster except for himself. Stenungsund was a bit different.

“There were four or five North Americans and a couple different guys from across Europe. On both teams, guys had different experiences playing either in the SHL, AHL, drafted to the NHL, and other various pro leagues in Europe,” says Fitzgerald. When asked what his favourite memory from his year away would be, Fitzgerald has a tough time narrowing it down. “To tell you my favourite memory

best for me to go back to school and play in Europe after school,” says Fitzgerald. “I’ve decided to accept my scholarship to East Texas University for human kinetics and to play hockey. It was a hard decision to make when I could have continued to play hockey in Europe in Sweden or another country even. But I just didn’t want to be thirty and going to school then. I hope to go back to Europe after school to continue to play and maybe get to the top league in Europe, The Champions League, one day.”

Photo Submitted would be so hard because I loved every minute I was there,” says Fitzgerald. “The travelling, training, hanging out with the guys, there was never one moment that I loved more than the other. But, maybe one would be my first shutout. It took me twelve starts but I had gotten it in a four-nothing win and had 28 saves that game. Just how the boys and management celebrated the moment really will stay with me forever.” Fitzgerald’s time away was so enjoyable, in fact, that he says he barely even had time to think about home.

Graeson Van Putten has lived near Martintown Adam Castillo and his family came to Cornwall by way of Toronto and Montreal. His parents were born in the Philippines. This grade 10 student takes academics very seriously and is a regular on the honour roll. Adam is a multi-sport athlete who trains 5 days a week in addition to attending regular rugby practices. In the fall, he plays football for the Panthers (where he’s a running back) and the Wildcats. He’s also a track and field runner. “I like the sprints,” he says. “I compete in the 100, 200, and 400. I also run cross-country.” Adam is looking forward to April, when he will travel to Washington with the Panthers to play rugby with an American club. This will be his first crack at the rugby pitch, and he is enthusiastic about the opportunity. “Rugby is really helping me with my endurance and footwork,” he says. “This will improve my football skills.”

It Is What It Is

reserved for Tiger. Tiger is back. After years of injuries and personal issues, he seems to have conquered his maladies and is contending once again.

By Peter Collins

M

uch like his feline namesake Tiger Woods has been rarely sighted during the past few years. In fact it could be said that Tiger, the golfer, was as endangered a species as Tiger the predatory animal. Until a few weeks ago when we heard roars from the golfing fraternity at Bay Hill Golf Club. Although there were cheers for the eventual winner Rory McIlroy, the biggest roars were

won a PGA tourney since 2013. What can we learn from Tiger’s return to grace, well we have learned that although his physical skills were great, his determination and will to win are even greater! There’s a new and improved Tiger out there now, more gracious, friendlier, and most incredulously, he seems almost humble. Humble and Tiger have rarely been mentioned in the same sentence, maybe not even in the same paragraph. But here he is; becoming a golf ambassador on par with Palmer and Nicklaus. What an incredible reversal of bad fortune; just what golf fans and the PGA needed.

Eldrick doesn’t do anything on a small scale, when he arrived on the golf scene back in 1996 he became the world’s best golfer almost instantaneously. He dominated winning tournaments and more importantly majors at an unprecedented pace. His dominance was so great that golf course owners started to “tiger proof” their 18’s in

order to restore some sort of balance to the game. As quickly as Tiger rose, his fall was almost as swift. The year 2010 brought divorce, and by the end of 2013 his rapid physical decline became the subject of tabloid scrutiny. Many if not most golf prognosticators declared that Tiger was done, washed up, over the hill, and that he may have a Champions’ Tour career at best. Skip ahead to today and lo and behold Tiger is the favourite at the upcoming Masters. Yes the Las Vegas bookies are taking bets on Tiger at a record pace. This despite the fact that he hasn’t won the Masters since 2005, hasn’t won a major since 2008, hasn’t

and Tokyo marathons. Wendell, a retired school teacher first began running in 1977 as a means of getting back into shape after breaking an ankle. Since that time he has had numerous accomplishments; completing marathons in each Canadian province and every state in the USA. He has been a five-time runner of the year, a Cornwall Lions Club athlete of the year, and has been inducted into the Glengarry Sports Hall of Fame. Wendell describes his path to the Abbott medal – “Life is a journey, and of course we never really know the road ahead, and it has a funny way of evolving over time. The road to Abbott’s medal began in April 2006 when Sheila and I were going to London to visit friends and decided to tie in the marathon. We were new to marathoning so this was the big time for us. The course has one of the best finish lines in marathoning ending right in front of Buckingham Palace, with Queen Victoria’s statue in the forefront. Then in November of the same year, Shelia got into the lottery oriented New York City marathon and had what was probably our best marathoning experience as the buzz and the excitement demonstrated by the spectators of the different boroughs was overwhelming. Shelia had her name on her shirt and people were calling out to her all along the course. I was the forgotten person. Then in October of 2007 we found ourselves at the Chicago marathon with fellow lady Raisin River Ramblers. It was the year of the meltdown. The girls were diverted off the course at the eighteen mile mark while I had made the cut and was allowed to finish. It was an experience not to be forgotten as there were helicopters in the sky, fire trucks by the road, hydrants open, police making

Photo Submitted announcements, and countless runners down and in need of help. Two people died that day. In April of 2015 I managed to stumble onto a Boston Marathon qualifying time without actually focusing on it. Gaining this acceptance would propel me to the Abbott Majors goal of being a six star finisher. Berlin had yet to be run and Tokyo had now been added to the original five marathons. In September of 2015 I ran Berlin, the second largest marathon in the world. It was very well organized and running through the Brandenburg Gate at the finish line was a memorable experience.” The sixth and final step to the coveted Abbotts medal would not be an easy one for Wendell. He was battling a fairly severe cold during the two weeks leading up to Tokyo, and also had trained inconsistently due to a prolonged foot injury. The Tokyo course is unique in the fact that there are nine checkpoints and if runners do not arrive at each one by a specified time they are removed from the course. This was a concern for Wendell as he had not been able to train as much as he would have liked due to the injury. “My concern was timing; I worked out several scenarios so that I could get through the checkpoints successfully. As it turned out, I was about an hour slower than normal in a time of 5:22:55 and almost on one foot……, but I finished.” Wendell has a saying “I like to set a goal and then run it down”. Wendell Lafave has set and then run down numerous goals in his illustrious running career. As for what is next, it looks like we will have to wait awhile. Wendell says “Now I’m home and this journey is over. Sheila and I await the next adventure, but first … the grandchildren.

“She did a great job at OFSAA,” says Coach Keith Dickson of this issue’s Athlete of the Month, Kayla Groulx. Kayla is a hockey player, both for the Varsity Panthers Girls’ Club, where she’s a captain, and the Cornwall Midget AA Typhoons, where she she’s an assistant captain. Kayla is a forward who is as comfortable at centre as she is on the wing. She’s also a university bound student who plans to continue her education in Kingston or Ottawa after she graduates from high school. In addition to her two hockey clubs, Kayla plays badminton and soccer for the Panthers, and she runs cross-country and the 1 500 and 3 000 metre races in track. “I’m competitive… Really competitive,” says Kayla of her hockey career. She’s been playing since the age of 4. She feels that her OFSAA experience with the Panthers was special. “It was very inclusive,” she says. “There were players from a lot of teams and with different skill levels.” The Typhoons are off to the Provincials soon, having earned a berth playing RSL and Kingston.

Let’s Get Jacked

During and before your workout, it is beneficial to get ‘pumped up’. Jump around. Listen to aggressive music. Get your adrenaline going… or activate your sympathetic nervous system.

HOWEVER. Bringing that energy level down or activating your parasympathetic nervous system in between sets and after you leave the gym is just as important. Although one may think otherwise, you don’t want to leave the gym feeling like you can destroy and take over the world. You don’t want to leave the gym and enter a stressful life situation either; as both will have your cortisol levels raised, putting you in a catabolic (muscle breakdown) state.

The answer is more complex than ‘Go lift some weight’. Gaining muscle is an intricate phenomenon; it involves more than just lifting weight in an 8-12 rep range. Your body must be in a condition that is conducive to Instead, instead try taking 5-10 growth, especially if you want that minutes for a post-workout.

especially with the keto diet exploding in popularity. Generally, ketogenic diets are geared towards fat loss. They can be used to build tissue, but adding carbs into the mix will make it much easier for most.

To maximize gains, try consuming 20-40 grams of low GI carbs within 30 minutes before and after your training session, along with approximately 30 grams of some source of protein. If you want to keep fat at bay, limit your consumption of carbohydrates to the pre/post workout window. Supplementing with creatine pre and post workout is also a great idea. Creatine has been proven over and over again in the research to be beneficial for building mass. Happy Gainzzz!

What is your Favourite Sports Memory?

Hanna Cameron Hometown: St Andrews School: St Joseph’s Grade: 11Age: 17

When it comes to favourite sports memories, this month’s athlete, goaltender Hanna Cameron, has a couple. She should because she’s been playing hockey since the age of 3. In the 8th grade, Hanna was the net minder for the Cornwall Typhoons in a tournament in Toronto, where she faced 21 skaters in a shootout to determine the winner of the game. The decision went to the Typhoons, 2-1. An injury and resulting surgery side lined Hanna for a season, but this year she backstopped the St. Joseph’s Women’s Varsity Hockey Club to an OFSAA appearance in Timmins. “OFSAA was awesome. It was a great experience. It brought out the best in everyone,” she says of the competition. “We were ranked 16th, but we finished 6th or 7th overall.” The Panthers lost in overtime in the quarter finals by a 1-0 count.

Colts Captain JD Pogue to Attend Canisius College in Buffalo, New York.

“For me, the alignment of academics and athletics was very motivating. The teams frequently travelled to the U.S. to play against different Prep School teams. Attending one became my goal. In grade 10, I was fortunate enough to catch the eye of a hockey coach and received a sports scholarship to Canterbury School, in Connecticut,” says Pogue. “I was there for three years and can’t tell you how amazing that experience was. My new goal became to play for a Division I NCAA college.”

By Molly Kett

J

D Pogue grew up in the West Island of Montreal, playing hockey for hours on end. He has been passionate about the game for as long as he can remember.

“As a boy, I would wake up early and spend all day playing hockey in the street, taking shots, and stickhandling. I loved hockey. I’d even play in the rain. The only thing that made me go inside was homework,” says Pogue. “When I was in grade 6, I went into a sports étude hockey program and I think that is when my passion for hockey really exploded.”

Soon, Pogue graduated from Canterbury and went back to his coach from Kuper, asking if he could help Pogue find a junior team where he could continue to develop as a player and take a leadership role.

In high school, Pogue received a sports scholarship from Kuper Academy. He played a different sport every season. At Kuper Academy, if you didn’t keep your grades up, you didn’t get to attend the games.

MURPHY’S SPORTS LAW

By David Murphy

R

ogers Hometown Hockey has come and gone in Cornwall and it’ll be a weekend that’ll be talked about for a long time! Ron MacLean and Tara Sloan were amazing hosts and took the time to meet people, take selfies, and sign autographs for the thousands of fans that spent time to absorb Hometown Hockey at the Civic Complex over two days.

  A highlight for me was the Royals/Colts Alumni Game held just prior to the kick off to Hometown Hockey.

for,

  The teams were mixed with Royals and Colts alumni what was supposed to be, a closer game.

  Coaches Brent Loney and Gilles Crepeau drafted their players in front of family, friends, and fans at Shoeless Joe’s the night before the game.  As is custom for the NHL All Star Game, the player chosen last was given a prize pack that included a new car from Benson Auto Parts, a gift certificate from Shoeless, and a City of Cornwall jacket.  Of course the new car was a remote controlled Lamborghini.  Ryan Cooper didn’t seem to mind receiving the prize pack from alumni referee Sean Boulerice prior to the game.

Continued on page 29

By David Murphy   Team Crepeau won the game 11-3 over Team Loney.  Most of the win can be attributed to the goaltending tandem of Brian Abrams and Josh Loney.  Abrams, who spent a few games with the Royals was the poster boy for the Toby Keith song “As Good As I Once Was”, making save after save like it was 1980.      From local alumni such as Todd Walker, Jesse Winchester, Jeff Legue, and Yves Leger to alumni making the trip to Cornwall to go down memory lane (Mark Mackisoc, Landon Lavictoire, Steve Bisson, Eric Calder, and Scott Birnie to name a few), it was a fun game for both players and fans.  Just to listen to Mario Viens’ stories again was worth it.  Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Brock McBride is 2-0 over Ian MacInnis when it comes to alumni games.  Both now coach the Colts and the alumni game score may have been mentioned once or twice since then.    It’s always fun to take a trip down memory lane and it was possible thanks to the alumni who eagerly signed up to take part in our special event!

  Special shout out to Lorne Taillon, Lori Gibeau, and Janice Robinson for their work on behalf of the City to ensure a smooth sailing ship the entire weekend!    Thank you Rogers Hometown Hockey for coming to Cornwall.

Art Buckland

Art was born in Montreal. His family moved to Cornwall when his Dad got a job working on machinery at Courtauld’s. After graduating from C.C.V.S. Art attended Mohawk College, Carleton University, Ontario College of Education, and Ottawa University. His education led to teaching positions at Northern College, Kirkland Lake, St. Lawrence College, Cornwall, Iohahi:Io Adult Training Centre, Snye, Quebec and a local high school. All these years of education and educating prepared Art for his 36 years as a School Board Trustee for the Upper Canada District Board. Art and his wife, Janice, are the proud parents of four children and four active grandchildren. Since Art and Janice moved to South Glengarry, to raise their children closer to nature he said, they have had chickens, beef cattle, horses and planted crops. Fifteen years ago the Buckland Bocce Courts were built on their farm on Glen Falloch Road. The Martintown Good Timers were formed and the rest is FUN, FUN, FUN. After all of this time Art has finally arrived at his Golden Years. But he is definitely not slowing down. He joined OSGA District 8 in 2009 to compete in the Regional and Provincial Games in bocce. Art and Janice have generously offered to host the OSGA District 8 Bocce Summer Competition on their courts on May 29, 2018. District 8 thanks Art and Janice for hosting this event this summer and hope this is the beginning of many more bocce events on their Buckland Courts.

Rogers Home Town Hockey Brings a Sen’s Fan Favorite to Cornwall By

T

Jim Riddell

he Scotiabank tent during Hometown Hockey weekend was a busy place as fans gathered to get an autograph or photo with former Ottawa Senator Chris Neil. Known mostly for his toughness, Neil was a sound defensive player who could also contribute offensively. Drafted in the sixth round of the 1998 draft at 161 overall, Neil spent his entire career in the Sens organization, retiring in 2017. Neil played two seasons with the Grand Rapid Griffins before making the Sens in fall of 2001. His career totals are 1026 games, 112 goals, 138 assists, and 2522 penalty minutes. In the Sens alltime ranking this puts Chris at 3rd Chris Neil with Sports Energy’s Jim Riddell  Photo Submitted in games played, 13th in scoring, and the leader in penalty minutes. “That part of the game has changed, in the Rogers tent at Hometown In fact those penalty minutes place and fighting is not as big a part of it Hockey I had to ask him about Neil firmly in 20th place in NHL now, but guys still have to be held their 2003 fight when Corson was a accountable.

of the smartest fighters in the NHL. Every fight is different, - other guys will study you and if you keep doing the same things they will quickly figure you out. It is important to always keep expanding your skill set and keep changing things up”.

Neil’s last contract with the Sens expired last summer and he considered playing elsewhere saying that he had offers from two western conference teams but decided to “hang it up”. Asked about a future role in the Sens organization Neil stated that it is a possibility. “I have done a few things already, but it would have to be in a capacity that would be a good fit for both sides. I am involved in the community, and my wife and I have an ongoing commitment with Rogers House. We have three children, and I am still on the ice at practice with my 8 yr. old son’s team. I’m not on the bench, but I enjoy helping the whole team, not just my son, and his team is now playing in the finals”.

Together, they won 10 gold, 12 silver and 12 bronze medals. Lily Mackenzie, 11, was one of the club’s top swimmers.

Another top swimmer at this meet was Avery Lauzon, 11, who finished with gold in 50m freestyle and 800m freestyle, silver in 200m backstroke, 100m breaststroke, and 200m individual medley, and bronze in 100m backstroke.

Lily finished the meet with gold in 100m butterfly, 200m butterfly, and 200m individual medley (all for strokes swam in one race), and silver in 200m freestyle and 50m butterfly.

Bill Dickie “Curler Extraordinaire”

B

ill Dickie, a long-time member of the Cornwall Curling Centre, has accomplished much in the sport of curling. Bill started curling at the age of 23, and, as he turns 81, is still quite active in the sport at the Cornwall Curling Centre. Having won many of the club bonspiels (you can find Bill’s name on many of the trophies around the club) over the years, his major accomplishments include winning two Senior Provincial Crowns, and two Senior Masters curling championships between 1990 and 2002. Additionally, and, of course, the ultimate achievement was competing in, and winning the 1995 Senior Canadian Curling Championship held in St. John New Brunswick. Bill….tell our readers about that experience? “The 1995 Senior Canadians was our second shot at a national title as we were in Whitehorse Yukon in 1990. Our record in Whitehorse was 5 wins and 6 losses. Having been at the Nationals before, we knew what it would take to win it in 1995. Winning the Ontario Provincials was as tough as it would be, to get to the National stage in 1995. Our team was comprised of Tom Prichard at third, Keith MacGregor at second, and George Dolejsi playing the lead position. We had a great start winning our first 3 contests when Prichard our

third went down with a bad back; missing 3 games during the roundrobin. With Prichard back in the line-up we finished strong finishing 8 and 3 in the round-robin. Our most gratifying win came against a strong team from Manitoba who had Terry Braunstien, Ray Turnbull, Don Duguid, and Barry

Fry, names very recognizable today in the sport of curling. We defeated them a second time in the semi-final sending us into the final against Saskatchewan claiming the title with a 7-4 win in St. Johns NB.”

Jacques Richard Memorial Trophy as the top sports personality of the year. Bill was also selected as Citizen of the Year in 1995, not only because of his curling achievements, but also his work in the education field having That same year in 1995 Bill pioneered alternative education was chosen as the recipient for the Continued on page 41

initiatives.

Bill Dickie was also successful in winning the Governor General Trophy five times and the Royal Victoria Jubilee Trophy four times. Bill….. Curling has come a long way in the past 50 years…..in your opinion how has technology and the game evolved over the years?

“I think if we look at the fitness level of the players today we see a significant difference here. Teams are spending much more time in the gym than they ever did before and bringing that fitness level to the rink. The sweeping is so much better in today’s game and so is the equipment the players are using. Brooms are lighter…shoes are so Bill Dickie Photo Submitted much better than they were even 25 years ago. weight to be successful.” The ice in today’s game is also much more consistent….ice making has become a science. Ice makers can give the curlers the type of ice they want whether its straighter ice or ice with more curl. Most of today’s events are played on arena ice. Arena ice is so consistent from sheet to sheet that players are making terrific shots and the game is fun to watch. With this new technology, consistent broom fabric, and fitness level, and anticipating the curl and calling the sweeping at the right time has also made the game fun to watch. However even through all of these advancements in the sport of curling the thrower still has to hit the broom and throw the proper

The senior draw sponsored by Edward Jones Financial saw 27 teams participate with the top 12 teams making the playoffs on March 23rd. The Edward Jones trophy was claimed by the team skipped by Brent Lawson along with 3rd Larry Amelotte, 2nd Bert Zylstra, and lead Randy Ross. Second place was claimed by the team skipped by Don Orton 3rd Louis Benoit, 2nd Ross Sommerville, lead Bob Browning. Third place honours went to Murray Halkett, 3rd Stewart MacDonald, 2nd Louis Quennville, and lead Gord Godard.

Issue #65 April 2018 on Friday April 6th.

The Tim Horton’s Brier was held in Regina Saskatchewan from March 2nd to the 11th. This being the Canadian Men’s Curling Championship with 16 teams participating. Ontario’s representative was John Epping who defeated Glen Howard in the Provincial final to get to the big show. The Cornwall Curling Centre was well represented at the Brier with club member Mat Camm playing at the 3rd position for Team Epping. It was Epping’s first appearance at the Brier, however the 2nd for Camm as he played third with Mark Keane in Calgary in 2015. Ontario had a terrific week going 9 wins with just 2 losses to finish in the 2nd spot behind Brad Gushue and making it into the 1-2 page playoff. Team Ontario’s percentages were all in the 90’s all week. Team Gushue shot lights out to beat Epping and secure his spot in the Brier final; although losing Epping secured a spot in the semi final against Alberta’s Brandon Botcher who beat Northern Ontario’s Brad

Jacobs earlier to advance. A great semi-final unfolded with Botcher advancing to the final against Team Canada’s Brad Gushue. Alberta’s Botcher proved to be all Gushue could handle forcing Gushue to make a cold draw to the button in the 10th end for the win. Gushue, having won the Brier last year at home in Newfoundland, will now represent Canada at the Worlds in Las Vegas. News hot off the press with Toronto’s John Epping making front end changes to the Epping team. Lead Tim March and Pat Janssen are out and Craig Savill and Brent Laing are in.

The back end of John Epping (skip) and Mat Camm (3rd) remains the same. Savill and Laing played together for many years as the front end for Glen Howard so they certainly know each other’s game. Look for higher front end percentages next year which will make the Epping team a stronger contender. Until the next and final curling column for this curling season “Hurry Hard”

1 on 1 with Shayne Corson at Rogers Hometown Hockey By Jim Riddell

F

Whistle Stops The “Team” has just completed Issue # 65, and as always, I would like to thank Lynn (Graphic Design), Margo (Editor), Bernadette (Website); our writers, Todd, Molly, Victoria, Carrie, Thom, Casey; our editorial columnists, Jim, Jorge, Dave, Matt and Christine, Kirby, Gord, Peter, and Alex; The Sports Panel, Gilles, Jake, Jim; Rene (distribution); our distribution locations, our advertisers and of course the people who are featured in our stories. I hope you enjoy # 65 Kudos to Lorne Taillon and the city for hosting Rogers Hometown Hockey. I enjoyed the telecast they produced and even enjoyed watching Winnipeg beat Dallas.

Another season is in the record books for the Cornwall Colts after they bowed out to the Hawkesbury Hawks in game 7. I took in the three home games and enjoyed each one. Very competitive and entertaining series. City of Cornwall has ongoing registration for Gerry Brown 3-3 hockey. IP thru Midget. Pick up your registration form at the Benson Centre.

Photo Submitted

ormer NHL star Shayne Corson was at Hometown hockey event as a part of the Rogers promotion. Corson, a native of Barrie ON, was drafted in the 1st round, 8th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1984 draft. After his OHL career with the Hamilton Steelheads finished in 1986, Corson went straight to the Habs, playing the next seven seasons in Montreal. After the 91-92 season he was traded to the Edmonton Oilers where he spent the next three years. As a free agent he signed with the St. Louis Blues in 1995 and was then traded back to Montreal during the 96-97 season. Back where he began his NHL career, Shayne played with the Habs until 2000, then signing with the Maple Leafs, spending the next 3 seasons in Toronto. Corson finished his career in Dallas, playing the last part of the 03-04 season with the Stars. He played 19 seasons in

the NHL, was a 3 time all-star, and played in the 1988 Olympics. He played in 1156 NHL games, scoring 273 goals and 420 assists for a total 693 points. Corson was a high energy, hard hitting power forward; a style that made him a fan favourite. He was also know to stick up for his teammates when necessary racking up 2357 penalty minutes and being credited with 169 fights during his career. “Chris Nilan taught me that part of the game during my first two years in Montreal, before he got traded. He worked with me on the fighting.” With Chris Neil also here for Hometown Hockey I had to ask about their 2003 fight – “That fight with Neil, - I think that I mostly held on. Chris is the type of player that is respected throughout the league and one that everyone hated to play against”. Since his retirement Corson has been living in Toronto and makes many public appearances with both

Rogers and Maple Leaf Sports Entertainment. He also returns to Montreal, saying “The Canadiens drafted me and gave me my start in the league, and I often go back and

do some things with them”. I am involved with some charities such as UC (colitis), Heart and Stroke, and the Canadian Cancer Society”.

I think Rogers Hometown Hockey stirred some hockey fans out of their homes and back to the Ed Lumley Arena for the playoffs. It was great walking around and running into old friends and people I have not seen out to games in a few years.

These billboards in Ottawa stating Melynk Out are the craziest waste of money I have seen in awhile. Do they really think they will influence a billionaire, who should be applauded for keeping the team in Ottawa? Ottawa is not a money making market. (ask Bruce Firestone and Rod Bryden) Mr. Melynk is actually Ottawa’s best hope, because I doubt if many potential owners would want to keep the team in Ottawa. Instead of wasting $10,000.00 on billboards, why didn’t they donate the money to Rogers House, the Sen’s foundation or just buy tickets to give away to people who otherwise could not afford to go. Own the Ice Hockey will once again be hosting their Spring AAA tournaments in Cornwall. Great boost to the local economy. Hey Kids, you still have time to register for football, baseball, soccer, and any other summer sport. Get involved and have some fun.

Colts’ Fan Reuben Primeau: Just Shy of a Century By Casey Leger

R

emember the Cornwall Calumets? How about the Cornwall Flyers? The Royals? The Aces? The Nationals? Reuben Primeau remembers them all.

If you can’t remember all those hockey teams, don’t feel bad: The Flyers at least date back to the 1930s. Mr. Primeau is 95 years young, and one of the biggest fans of local hockey in living memory.

“I’ve been to every Colts’ game, and before that, every Royals’ game,” said Mr. Primeau, comfortably installed in his usual seat at the Civic Complex on the night that the Colts honoured Dave Ezard by raising a banner to his memory. “I love local hockey,” he continued. “It’s a good game. It gets me out of the house. More

people should support it.”

Mr. Primeau has been on both sides of the glass when it comes to his favourite sport. In his younger days, he played hockey in the Lancaster area. He’s been a fixture at local rinks ever since. Having watched more Cornwall hockey than probably anyone, Mr. Primeau has appreciated the evolution of the game. “It’s much faster today than it used to be,” he said. “There’s a lot more skill to it now.” “The Cornwall Aces,” Mr. Primeau said without any hesitation when asked to name his favourite Cornwall team. “They were a great club. Garth Snow was their goalie, and he went on to play with the New York Rangers.” Here’s wishing Mr. Primeau many more years of great Cornwall hockey.

presents Then and Now: Cornwall Colts Edition… Rodney Pitblado By Staff Writer

odney Pitblado has a lot to say when it comes to talking about his time playing junior hockey. “I have some very fond memories from my days of playing junior hockey,” he states. Pitblado, who is one of the original Cornwall Colts, played with the Junior A squad in 1992-1993, its inaugural season. “In 1991, I was drafted in the third round to the Massena Americans of the Central Junior A league. The Americans later became the Cornwall Colts in the 1992-1993 season. Don Derry bought the team and moved it to Cornwall,” Pitblado explains. “It was an exciting time for hockey in Cornwall. The fans were great - they were very supportive. And, playing hockey in the town I grew up in was such a great experience. I always had many friends and family at the games.” Pitblado, a defenceman, played 80 games in the CJHL. He was wellknown for his tough, physical play, especially against the boards, earning

When thinking about his days as a Colt, Pitblado quickly recalls the friendships with his teammates. “During the season you often spend more time with your teammates than you do with your own family. It creates such a strong bond. More than anything, I remember the camaraderie of the team. The joking around after the games and practices. The tricks we played on each other. The hanging out off-ice. I’m still great friends with many of the players from that team.” Pitblado also remembers well the juggling act of balancing school Former Cornwall Colts’ player, Rodney Pitblado, enjoys spending time and hockey. “School always came with his wife, Krista and their two sons, Zayne and Trey.

How Do You Turn $20,000 into $1,00000?

Members of the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame have the formula for success. On a recent tour of the upgraded Hall of Fame Area in the Cornwall Civic Complex, Sports Energy publisher Mike Piquette was left speechless. “I was speechless”, said Piquette. Upgraded lighting, painting and displays looked awesome. A new addition to the Hall, posters on windows highlighting our former athletes turned the concourse area of the arena from a dull waiting and walking area, into a trip down memory lane. “The improvements called out to me, and I was drawn to items and showcases I usually just walked by”. Great job and Kudos to the people responsible for this upgrade. It looks like a Million Bucks!
