The volunteer committee for the 30 Hour Telethon Palliative Care are putting the finishing touches on this year’s telethon, as we near the end of February. This major fundraiser starts at noon Saturday, Feb. 25 and ends at 6 p.m., on Sunday, Feb. 26, at the Brockville Arts Centre. “Palliative Care is a non-government funded local program which started about 37 or 38 years ago by the Sisters of Providence,” said 30 Hour Telethon chair Wayne Blackwell. “It’s a program where we have consult nurses that are in the community, in the hospital, long term care facilities and nursing homes, that help palliative care patients live the remaining few days in their life. As well, they help the families cope.” The local Palliative Care team is compassionate, committed and especially trained for this particular program in supporting the hospice palliative care needs. “During the month of February, people may have already started donating with the Star Program at the Real Canadian Superstore and Giant Tiger in Brockville and Giant Tiger in Prescott,” indicated Blackwell. “We’ve already had a Spaghetti Night; we have raffles, tickets and draws for hockey tickets, a trip to a Montreal Canadiens game, and an Ottawa jersey. Donations are accepted online at our website,

For more information about the wildlife area, visit crca.ca or call 1-877-956-2722.

The Aquatarium at Tall Ships Landing in Brockville continues to accommodate school visits, working with teachers to provide an individualized class experience relative to the students' studies. "For the school visit, we have three options," said Education Co-ordinator Jessica Williams, who has a bachelor of education and a master of inclusion education. "Teachers with their class can come for a self guided visit for $8 per student, to interact with experiences at their own pace." Activities will keep the class engaged and focused while still being educational. "We also have the hands-on visit wherein I work with the teachers to develop a lesson plan that aligns with what they are learning in the classroom, making the lesson productive and meaningful," explained Williams. "All kindergarten to Grade 12 programs are linked to the Ontario Curricula in history, geography, social studies, art, science and technology. The fee is $12 per student."

"It's super fun; it's not daycare, the children are learning," said Williams. "It is an enrichment program. They have done planets, erosion, oil spills and pollution over Christmas, heat lamps and glacier melting. Parents can run their errands, then return to pick them up." The cost is $90 for six Saturdays or $72 for four Saturdays. March Break Day Camp From March 13 to 17, the March break Day Camp, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. is being offered for ages six to 12 years old with age-appropriate activities.

COMMENTARY Trying to fool them twice
A recent release from the RCMP serves as a reminder to the public to remain vigilant when it comes to engaging callers or emailers that are out to get other people's money. Some scammers are reportedly adjusting their approach in order to fleece victims a second time. Losses attributed to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) scam decreased significantly after authorities in India made a number of arrests at "call centres" in the Asian nation, according to the release from the Mounties. However, there are fraudsters who are reportedly attempting to re-engage CRA scam victims. Apparently, a promise sent by email indicates most of the money that was lost will be paid back so long as the respondent agrees to make an administrative payment. Sounds like one of those phoney lottery wins in which the alleged winner has to pay a fee or taxes in order to claim the prize in the lottery he or she never entered because it doesn't exist. As is usually the case, the scammer asks the victim for payment in the form of prepaid credit cards or gift cards or electronic funds transfers. The fraudster might also be phishing for the victim's identification info. Word of mouth continues to be an effective way to spread the Doreen Barnes/Metroland word. Talk to family and friends about these scams and increase public awareness. We know it can be extremely difficult for victims Pastry King’s Princess owner Ingrid VanDusen (left) is hold- offered to visitors at the recent Brockville Wedding Show to come forward and report these crimes, but sharing the stories ing the bride and groom cookies, while Melodie Morrison were fudge brownies, pecan squares, butter cream Dutch might help prevent other people from experiencing a similar fate. (right) holds the packet of meringue. On the table, being wedding cake and death by chocolate cupcakes. Call the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
Mrs. Beam’s cure-all more effective and cheaper than Dr. Murphy Mother and Aunt Bertha were sitting at the kitchen table having a cup of tea. "I don't think I will ever get used to using onions in anything but a stew or soup pot," Mother said. They had been talking about our neighbour Mrs. Beam who said onions could cure everything, and were a heck of a lot cheaper than bringing old Dr. Murphy all the way out from Renfrew. Aunt Bertha assured Mother just about everyone out at Northcote took Mrs. Beam's advice and used onions to fight colds, cure hooping cough, fix a sore throat, and believed they could even remove warts. I pretended I wasn't listening, and kept dressing and undressing my dolls. I knew the talk would eventually get around to me and the hacking cough I had had for days. And I was being kept home from the Northcote School to "heal up", as Aunt Bertha called it. Mother put her faith in mustard plasters and Vic's Vapor Rub from Ritza's Drug Store, both of which had been

tried on my bony chest. But she had to admit neither had done much to rid me of my hacking cough. I knew all about the onion treatments, and I hated them with a passion. My sister Audrey hated them even more, because she said anyone in Senior Fourth should not smell like a pot of boiled onions at the Northcote School, and the one time she wore them, everyone kept their distance away from her. After that first day, she left the house with the onions tied around her neck, but tossed them in the ditch at the end of our lane, and by the end of the week, there was a pile of onions in the snow which Audrey covVice President & Regional Publisher Peter Bishop email@example.com 613-283-3182, ext. 108 Director of Advertising Cheryl Hammond firstname.lastname@example.org 613-221-6218 General Manager Cindy Manor email@example.com 613-283-3182, ext. 164 Editor in Chief Ryland Coyne firstname.lastname@example.org
ered with the toe of her galoshes so no one would see them. I couldn't remember when Mrs. Beam arrived with the little sacks made out of flour bags, with a long string on them, so that they could hang around our necks. She ordered Mother to chop up a couple onions, put them in the bag, put the bag around the neck of the one ailing, send them off to school, and before you could say "cheese" (which was a favourite expression of hers) you'd break any cold, and whooping cough, and would even lessen the scourge of the measles! Well, after Aunt Bertha headed back across the 20-acre field with the cutter, Mother found one of the little flour bag sacks, chopped up a good sized onion, filled the bag, and hung it around my neck. My eyes ran buckets of tears, which Mother assured me would stop as soon as I got used to the onions. They didn't seem to be doing me much good, as I hacked away all afternoon, and by the time my brothers and sister got home from school, I smelled like DISTRIBUTION: Richard Squires, 613-498-0305 RECEPTIONIST Debra Lawless CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Phone: 1-800-267-7936 Judy Michaelis email@example.com Cheryl Code

My hateful brother Emerson, of course, was the first to make a comment, and at supper that night asked Mother if he could eat at the bake table to get away from the smell of raw onions which he said was making him sick. That night Mother decided she would do exactly what Mrs. Beam told her to do, not only to cure me, but to stop the cough from spreading to everyone else in the family. So chopped onions were put on the washstands in our bedrooms, onion bags hung around our necks, and we all went to bed wearing chopped onions in a pair of wool socks. Mother was doing everything Mrs. Beam told her to do. And if everyone came down with a bad cold, it wouldn't be because she didn't listen to Mrs. Beam! By the time the lamp was blown out, the upstairs reeked of onions, and my sister vowed she wasn't going to put a foot outside the next morning to go to school until she washed her hair and had a sponge bath. firstname.lastname@example.org ADVERTISING: Connie Seguin David Fox Shawn Ogilvie Advertising Sales Manager: Wayne Thornhill Managing Editor Marla Dowdall Editor Tim Ruhnke 613-498-0305 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS FRIDAY 4:30 PM
Well! Talk about a surprise! I didn't cough once during the night, my nose had stopped running, everyone seemed hale and hearty, and it looked like no one else in the house was going to get my cold. Audrey doused herself with talcum powder, Mother put dabs of vanilla behind my ears, the brothers were well aired out by the time they came in from doing barn chores, and only the faintest smell of onions remained. So off we went to the Northcote School. Mrs. Beam continued to be the person to go to when sickness invaded a household. Onions and coal oil were her favourite treatments. Mother, who never quite got used to them, nevertheless agreed, they were worth trying, and a lot cheaper than the $2 old Doctor Murphy charged for coming twelveand-half miles out from Renfrew.

Corey Ashby, left, and Chris Girdler were among those competing in the nail driving competition during the Mallorytown Winter Festival on Saturday. The 9th annual event also featured horse-drawn wagon rides, pond skating, a Lego-building contest, family games and a baby contest. The festival is strongly supported by business sponsorships and volunteers.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Please be considerate when on the road I would like to share about driving habits. I'd like to remind drivers that respect and consideration can make all the difference. We really need to be cautious and attentive. Driving is a privilege and responsibility that needs to be taken seriously. As we now share the road more than in the past, we need to be fully focused. Personally, I've witnessed drivers distracted by cellphones who have swerved across the centre line, endangering another driver. Some drivers - like my husband - took driving very seriously. As an AZ driver, he was
extremely adept and skilled. He was always aware of road conditions and could anticipate what the other driver would do. He avoided so many potential accidents in his life. I always felt the safest when he was behind the wheel. It must be encouraged for drivers to signal their turns, not tailgate, leave adequate space between cars, stop at red lights and stop signs (yes!), and stay in your own lane! My husband had so many careless drivers cut him off, cross the centre line and drive straight at him in his lane. He had to "do a dance" to escape being hit. He literally drove back and forth
into both lanes until the other driver finally "woke up." Driving is serious. It kills people. Gravel truck drivers also need to be more diligent. Remember to tarp the load and drop the wheels. This was another concern in our area. Please be considerate on the road, driving how you would want the other driver to drive. Think of the human lives at stake and value them. Respect your fellow man. In loving memory of my husband, a professional who was so conscientious on the road - an exemplary driver. D. Loney

Canadians reveal their thoughts on self-driving vehicles Kanetix.ca recently released the results of their survey to find out what Canadians think about self-driving vehicles. Kanetix.ca is Canada's leading online insurance review and purchase portal providing over 1,000,000 quotes a year and they also offer mortgage and credit card comparisons. They polled 1,000 Canadians asking their opinions on autonomous driving technology. Only a quarter of all respondents stated they were positively looking forward to the day when self-driving vehicles were available (25 per cent), this was only a one per cent increase from answers given a year earlier. The majority position was neutral at 56 per cent, up from 52 per cent for the previous survey. The absolute rejecters of this mobility move were pegged at 18 per cent (down from 23 per cent the previous year). "Technology is continually improving and innovating, and we've already seen auto manufacturers incorporate self-driving safety aspects in some existing vehicles, such as automatic emergency braking (AEB) or sensors that temporarily control steering to avoid collisions," said Andrew Lo, chief operating officer and tech expert at Kanetix.ca. "It's still a jump for most people to make in terms of going completely driverless but Canadians are interested in these improved safety features and, as a result, seem willing to slowly adopt more automated functions." What's interesting in the report is that while the majority states they're not quite ready for self-driving autos, 81 per cent believe it will eliminate the threat of distracted driving, and 73 per cent feel it will reduce accidents and fatalities, and 68 per cent agree it will make things safer for pedestrians and cyclists. While, as a whole, we may not yet be total fans of selfdriving technologies, the majority of respondents to Kanetix.ca's recent study (59 per cent) "would buy or lease a car with improved self-driving safety features; features like front crash prevention, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and blind spot detection to name just a few." In fact some of these systems may save drivers money on their insurance bills. Kanetix.ca reports that Aviva Insurance recently announced a 15 per cent discount for owners of vehicles equipped with automatic emergency braking (AEB). It's cruel winter driving season and with it comes a perennial headache, frozen auto door windows that refuse to open. What many drivers fail to realize until it's too late is that many power windows can be easily damaged by simply trying to open them when the glass is frozen to the door frame and rubber moldings and run-channels. While some power window motors have a safety system to limit the motor's power and cut off the supply if the window doesn't move after a predetermined amount of force is applied, most do not. And those equipped with auto-down or express-down features can continually apply the full force of the motor (without the driver being aware) unless the switch is reversed. When a glass regulator breaks under this stress, it's usually the attachment points that secure the glass to the regulator mechanism that fail. To repair this, the door trim panel has to be removed and the glass and regulator have to be accessed. It's easy for these bills to average between $100 and $200 or more depending on the make and model of the vehicle and the amount of damage. To avoid this, keep door windows from sticking by spraying silicone lubricating compound (available at any autoparts store) on any rubber molding or run channel surface that touches the glass. If the spray can comes with a nozzle-straw attachment, use it to get the spray down into the bottom of the run channels below the top edge of the glass when it's fully lowered. For better thawing of frozen door windows from your vehicle's HVAC system, set the air-flow to the dash outlets and turn all of

The Comedian’s a hidden gem flying under movie radar MOVIE: The Comedian STARRING: Robert De Niro, Leslie Mann, Edie Falco, Danny DeVito, Patti LuPone and Harvey Keitel DIRECTOR: Taylor Hackford RATING: 14A Every once in a while I find a gem flying under the radar. The kind of film that isn't getting a lot of attention, but is too good to miss. The Comedian is one of those gems. Jackie Burke (Robert De Niro) is an aging insult comic looking to make a comeback. Back in the day he was famous for the character he played on TV. That character has followed Jackie his whole career even though he'd like to put it behind him. Jackie's agent, Miller (Edie Falco), gets him booked into a small club for a nostalgia show. It starts off fine, but when he gets ambushed by a couple of hecklers looking to provoke Jackie and put it on You Tube, things get out of hand. Jackie loses it and ends up doing 30 days in prison. Once he's out Jackie meets Harmony (Leslie Mann) while doing his community service. The two strike up a friendship, and life takes
My Take MARK HASKINS
one of its twists. We watch Jackie navigate life's pitfalls. His relationship with his brother Jimmy (Danny DeVito). His attempts to get his career back on track. Whatever it is that's going on between him and Harmony. It's a mess. It's a funny mess but a mess. The Comedian takes us into the world of stand-up comedy. It's got some great comedians, and some intelligent and funny standup routines. The film has a bit of a different perspective though. Jackie is in his 60s and attempting a comeback. This film is as much about the man as it is the comedian and sometimes it's hard to separate the two. It's funny but there's an edge to it too. There's a darkness and a bitterness that blends in with the humour. It's what makes it so interesting. Edie Falco, Danny DeVito, Patti LuPone
and Harvey Keitel are amazing. That's probably not a surprise. It is interesting to see them take on what are obvious stereotypes in their characters, and yet be anything but stereotypical. Leslie Mann's character is a little lost and trying to find her way. Yet she's got this confidence and strength as well. Mann creates this vulnerability without being weak. She shows strength without losing tenderness. It's incredible. This is Robert De Niro doing what he does best. He's so funny and so quick it's hard to believe he isn't a stand-up comedian. The clincher for me is this one scene where Jackie's filming the pilot episode for a new reality TV show. It's pretty horrific and the contestant is much abused, and you see it play out in De Niro's eyes. He goes from disbelief, to disgust, to rage. It's all there in his expression. His entire performance is raw, real and powerful. The Comedian is an introspective comedy that doesn't pull any punches in either the jokes or the drama. Mark Haskins' column is a regular feature.

and was one of the first members of the North West Mounted Police, was assigned to establish a post in what is now Saskatchewan.

Brockville edges the Smiths Falls Bears for second win of weekend Make it 11 shutouts for Henry Johnson. The CCHL1 career record-holder stopped all 32 shots he faced in Brockville's 1-0 win at home against Smiths Falls on a snowy Sunday afternoon. The lone goal came late in the third period, when Derek Bureau scored his first as a Brave with 3:48 left in regulation. He was named first star. Johnson logged his second shutout of the regular season and was the second star; he improved his save percentage to .928 and was number two in the league in that category as of Sunday night. Third star went to Bears netminder Bo Taylor, who made 42 saves in the loss. It was Brockville's second win of the weekend. The Jr. A hockey team broke a 1-1 tie in the third period and held on for a 3-2 win against the Nepean Raiders at the Brockville Memorial Centre on Friday. Noah Jordan made it 2-1 at 10:19 of the third and then scored his second of the game with just under six minutes left in regulation. The Raiders got one back at 16:41, but the Braves held on for the home victory. Jordan was named first star. Reid Murphy, who assisted on both of Jordan's goals, received the second star honour. Corey Caruso had the other goal for Brockville. Johnson made 36 saves in net for the Braves. Marshall Frappier faced 41 Brockville shots. The Braves opened the week in Cornwall on Wednesday, Feb. 8. The Colts had a 3-0 lead midway through the second period. Caruso got Brockville on the board with just under two-and-a-half minutes to play in the middle frame, and Sean Allen made it 3-2 at 4:42 of the third. Cornwall managed to hang on and defeat the visitors. The Braves outshot the Colts 38-28. Cornwall goaltender Liam Lascelle was named first star. Allen picked up the second star honour. Brockville (28-23-0-1) ended the weekend in fifth place in the Robinson Division; the Braves were four points behind Kemptville with two games in hand. Brockville travels to Smiths Falls on Valentine's Day night. The Braves host the Ottawa Jr. Senators on Friday, Feb. 17 at 7:30 and then travel to Hawkesbury for an 8 o'clock start on Saturday night. The Braves will also be in action on the holiday Monday; Brockville takes on Carleton Place at 3 p.m. on Feb. 20. Although they were in fifth place in their division as of Sunday, the Braves were 10 points up on the second-place team (Nepean) in the CCHL1's Yzerman Division.

The 37th annual celebration offered five days of indoor and outdoor activities for all ages, including chicken bowling, horseshoes, log sawing, family games and a spaghetti dinner. Organizers Meg Mallory and Tracy Griffin said a team of about 20 volunteers put on the celebration that originally started as a fundraiser for the community recreation hall.

The blood donor clinic to be held in Gananoque this Friday, Feb. 17 will honour the memory of Parker Simpson, who passed away last week at the age of 8.
For further information, contact: 613-342-8772, ext 3222. Earle Moore Arenas and Facilities Supervisor
The young boy who captured the hearts of so many will be remembered at a Canadian Blood Services donor clinic in Gananoque on Friday. Eight-year-old Parker Simpson, a student at South Crosby Public School in Elgin, passed away last Wednesday Feb. 8, just over a year since he was diagnosed with a form of lymphoma. The clinic, to be held at Carveth Care Centre on Herbert Street, had previously been planned in honour of Parker. Canadian Blood Services Territory Manager Debbi Barfoot said Parker’s parents, Sarah and Devin Simpson, chose to proceed with the clinic despite his passing. “We’re going to keep on the same theme,” Barfoot said. “It’s a nice way to honour Parker, the school and the community.” A similar “in honour” clinic for Parker was held in Gananoque last April. Parker would have been a candidate for a stem cell transplant had he responded well to treatment, Barfoot explained, adding that many people are dealing with cancer and leukemia and require blood and blood products. In noting that one blood donation can save up to three lives, Barfoot said “blood cannot be manufactured. We are 100 per cent dependent on Canadians coming in and giving blood.” Besides donating blood at the Gananoque clinic, people are also encouraged to complete a self-swab and be added to the OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network. The national registry is responsible for finding and matching volunteer donors to patients who require stem cell transplants, Barfoot said. Anyone between the ages of 17 and 35 may complete the simple swab procedure, although blood services is particularly targeting men in this age group. Barfoot explained that from a medical perspective, men make better stem cell donors. For example, the risk of graph versus host disease is lower with males, she said. As of late last week, there were still about 15 open spots for the clinic. Booking appointments online at blood.ca is encouraged, or call 1-888236-6283. South Crosby school still had 10 openings for those giving in honour of Parker. The school can be reached at 613-359-5933. Barfoot said those attending are also asked to wear lime green – the colour for lymphoma. Additionally, support may be offered through memorial donations to the Children’s Cancer Fund at Kingston General Hospital, the school’s Park It With Parker fund, or by planting a tree in his memory.
CCHL2: Big second period gives Rideaus the edge over Aeros
St. Lawrence College Night at Brockville Braves game
St. Lawrence College mascot Schooner drops the puck for Brockville Captain Andrew Jarvis and Pembroke Assistant Captain Justin Felhaber before the start of the Braves-Lumber KIngs game at the memorial centre on Friday, Feb. 3. In the background assisting Schooner is Brad Craig-Pettem. The home team went on to win the game 4-1.
The Aeros appear to have a decent shot at moving up a spot as the CCHL Tier 2 playoffs near. Athens and Westport have been jockeying for position in the final stretch of the regular season. The two teams faced off against each other in front of a large crowd at Centre 76 on Saturday night. The Rideaus scored early in the first period, but the Aeros drew even early in the second. After that, the visitors scored four consecutive goals in the middle frame. Athens had cut the lead in half by late in the third period, but Westport sealed the deal with an empty-netter with 54 seconds left in regulation to win 6-3. The Aeros outshot the Rideaus 38-26; Lee Spurgeon made 35 saves for Westport and was named first star. Garry Smith had two goals for the visitors and was selected second star. Anthony Scattolon picked up an assist for Athens and was named third star. The victory gave the Rideaus a onepoint lead over Athens in the standings, but the Aeros had three games in hand and Westport only has one game left in the regular season. Athens (22-13-4-5) has two home games this weekend. The Aeros will
Melissa Hillier is leaving United Way of Leeds Grenville United Way Leeds and Grenville has announced the upcoming departure of its Executive Director, Melissa Hillier. "At this time, the board is taking a step back to look at our strengths and our opportunities for growth, so that United Way Leeds and Grenville can continue to make the greatest impact possible on the most pressing social issues experienced in our community," president Shawn Souder stated in a release issued on Monday, Feb. 6.
Choose foods produced organically, locally and in season. Support your regional farmers and farming industry: buying locally and in season is better for the environment than buying foods that have been shipped hundreds of kilometres to your local market.
Hillier will be moving to Seattle to join her husband, Dr. Matthew Rodrigues, as he pursues his career in cancer research. "I would like to thank this amazing community for their continued generosity and their support of the United Way," she said. "I know that it has been tough for organizations to meet their targets, both in Leeds Grenville and the surrounding communities. However, I am very proud of the staff and volunteers
for raising well over three-quarters of a million dollars, in both 2015 and 2016." The Leeds and Grenville United Way supports 22 partner agencies. The goal of the 2016 campaign was $950,000. A hiring committee is targeting May 1 as the date on which the organization is hoping to have Hillier's successor in place. She has committed to remaining with the United Way until the transition is complete.
"I have seen first-hand how committed the board, volunteers and staff are to changing lives locally; I will be cheering them on from Seattle," Hillier added. Hillier succeeded longtime local United Way executive director Judi Baril following her retirement in March 2015. Another longtime United Way Leeds and Grenville staff member, Crystal Sled, left the organization late last year to work for CPHC.
