News – A great surprise late Sunday afternoon was a donation from the Knights of Columbus, #1049 as Deputy Grand Knight Rick Fraser presented a second cheque of $30,000 to Palliative Care Telethon chair Bruce Wylie. The previous day, Saturday as the 30 Hour Telethon began, Fraser had already presented a cheque from the Knights of Columbus, #1049 for $1,000. With seconds left in the 31st annual telethon, Wylie announced

the total raised as $246,486, an all-time high for this program. The chair thanked all those who assisted in helping to raise these funds as well as members of the public for their donations. Fish bowls brought in nearly $10,000, the Star Program raised $21,000, raffle was $600 and the canteen $500. There’s still more to be added to this televised total – the silent auction and last minute donations.

Completed Community Engagement Surveys must be returned to the branch by March 9. If online, residents have until midnight, March 9, to enter. Entries are put into a draw for an iPad.

responding to the needs,� of library users. It will also allow it to determine how to serve and accommodate those who do not use the library and how to draw them in. The survey looks at everything possible, from hours to how things are done, to why people use the library, why they choose not to use it, what could be improved and more. To undertake the plan, a consultant will be brought on board and public sessions will be held, as well as open houses. “Part of our library board’s strategic plan will be looking at where we are now and where we want to go in the future,� Mendez noted. “We can’t move forward with the strategic plan See SURVEY page 3

Visitor Centre re-opens with new layout and new equipment able staff to work with visitors and help them book various attractions and find out all that they need to know while they are in the area. Staff were given a budget of $3,000 to complete the necessary renovations. The first $2,000 went toward new office equipment including a laptop, printer, iPads, phones and iPad holders. The remaining $1,000 went toward paint, brochure racking, signage and other supplies. They were ecstatic that so much work was done, in such a short period of time all while staying within budget. “We did it!” exclaimed Hirstwood. Essentially most people who venture into the visitor centre are looking for information; what there is to do; where there is to go. It is a convenient spot for travelers to book tickets. “We also want residents to come and find out what’s happening in their community. This is their visitor centre as well,” Pam Staples, marketing and com-

Lifestyle - The Gananoque and Thousand Islands Visitor Centre is an essential part of the 1000 Islands community, providing information, advice and most importantly, a personal connection. The visitor centre first opened in 2004 and was in need of a new look. It was just three short weeks ago, on Feb. 14 that they closed the doors for renovations. In that time staff and volunteers went to work. Re-opening celebrations were held at the location, 10 King St., March 1. “We had lots of volunteers who stepped up and did work as well,” Shelley Hirstwood who works at the centre explains. The layout for the centre has changed – a new counter has come in and the new arrangement should give it a more welcoming feel. They have opened up the board room to become the new lounge area. In this area they have some comfy chairs and have added some tablets. This will en-

munications manager added. In 2012 there was a survey done by The Great Waterway that provided staff at the visitor centre with some very valuable information such as who is coming to Gananoque and why. It shows that 73 per cent of all people who come through the door have already been on the website and have already booked their hotel. What people are looking for is that personal touch. “They want to know, where’s that best ice cream shop? Where can I take my kids? What are the freebies? We’re on a budget and I have kids, where can I go?” Hirstwood elaborates. Gananoque has so much to offer and the personal touch that tourists (and lo-

News – Congratulations to Linda Deir of Brockville, the latest winner of $100,000 with Encore (Feb. 1 Lotto 6/49 draw). “I was at the store checking my tickets when the cashier jumped back when the machine started making noise,” said Deir, while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to claim her prize. “The man in line behind me said, ‘This lady won a lot of money. The OLG will be calling soon!’” The retiree was in total shock when she found out the prize amount. “It felt like Christmas morning!” She plans to take a trip to Mexico with one of her daughters and save the rest of the winnings for the future. Encore can be played in conjunction with most online lottery games for an extra $1. There is an Encore draw every day. The winning ticket was purchased at Real Canadian Superstore on Parkedale Avenue in Brockville.

without input from the community.” Information from the survey will be “instrumental,” in the planning process. “We want to be able to evaluate how we can move forward in the most effective manner.” While a date has not been set for completion of the strategic plan, what is certain is it will be reviewed every year, to evaluate whether the library is on target, and to see if anything has changed along its planned course. “It is very important to us that we are not yesterday’s library. We take great pride in being cutting edge,” she said with a smile. The library is on the cusp of technology – offering touch screen computers. A tablet will be acquired soon for those who are interested in learning how to use one, or would like to experiment before making their own purchase. Library patrons will be able, “to get their questions answered in a comfortable environment,” Mendez explained. They also have e-readers which can be taken out on loan – for example if someone was vacationing, they could borrow the device to take with them. As well, there is a portable DVD player which can be loaned out, as well as an extensive collection of DVDs. Mendez

noted parents could always borrow the portable DVD player if they are going on vacation to entertain their children during a long car ride. Another highlight is the library’s Playstation 4 system and games, at the Lansdowne branch. The library also has a 3D screen for use. Once a month it holds movie nights geared toward adults, usually the last Wednesday of the month. Many programs An extensive array of programs for youngsters and adults are offered. And sometimes they are created to fill a need, or requests from the public. Recently, a quilting course was undertaken, after it was mentioned by a patron. Another craft program may be offered in the future. Computer classes are taught as well. There are also some very popular book clubs. For February – Library Lovers Month – those attending the library were urged to go on a “blind date” with a book. Books, picked by library staff, were wrapped in plain paper with a bow and users could pick a book at random to read. It would be a surprise when they got home. There is an extensive and full collection of books, audio books, and collections are kept up to date.

Membership is free. Those wishing to acquire one must be a resident of the library’s coverage area. To join just bring in a piece of identification. The library is also able to access collections from other libraries, so if there is a book or DVD they don’t have on hand, “We pretty much go anywhere to get a book for you,” Mendez said. There are many services offered, including home outreach, workshops, book clubs and more. The Lansdowne branch is located at 1B Jessie St., and can be reached by calling 613-659-3885.

United Counties approves 2014 budget News - Leeds and Grenville ratepayers could see a decrease in their taxes after counties council voted to reduce the tax rate while passing the 2014 budget in a regular meeting Feb. 20. The United Counties reduced its tax rate by 1.7 per cent and will collect $33.6-million from property taxpayers this year. The approved budget provides for total expenditures in the amount of $101.8-million, of which operational expenditures account for $85.1-million and capital expenditures account for $16.7-million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal is to keep services intact and costs down,â&#x20AC;? said director of corporate services/treasurer Nigel White. A residential property owner whose assessment was $100,000 in 2013 and 2014 could see a decrease of $6.26 in their property taxes for counties purposes and would pay $367.26 this year. However, the impact varies for each taxpayer depending on the phase-in of the assessments over a four-year period and therefore the average taxpayer should expect to pay two per cent more than 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are currently in the second year of the four-year

phase-in,â&#x20AC;? said White. A breakdown of the operating budget expenditures shows the largest piece of the pie is for Ontario Works at 23.3 per cent, followed by transportation costs of 18.6 per cent. Community Housing and the paramedic service accounts for 12.56 and 12.62 respectively. Operating expenses are up by 1.6 per cent overall. The capital budget includes $1.5-million in additional funds for public works projects and $3.2-million in projects carried over from last year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a decrease from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $20.4-million in capital spending when $6-million was needed to upgrade regional fire communications. Road and infrastructure work accounts for 87 per cent of capital expenditures. Land ambulance services take up 4.11 per cent, followed by 3.72 per cent for community housing, two per cent for corporate services and 1.89 per cent for county properties. The taxation base includes real growth (new assessment) of $442,246, or an increase of 1.3 per cent. Submitted by UCLG.

MPP helps put highway winter maintenance probe in gear

News – Ontario’s Auditor General will investigate why motorists have encountered such dangerous conditions on provincial highways this winter after a motion from Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark was passed unanimously at a legislative committee meeting recently. “I’m pleased the committee has asked the Auditor General to investigate the reasons motorists in Leeds-Grenville and in every corner of Ontario have had to take their lives into their hands when they get behind the wheel and travel on a provincial highway this winter,” said Clark after his motion was passed by the Standing Committee on Public Accounts. “Constituents are writing to me and calling my office after almost every snowfall to say they’ve never seen Ontario’s highways in such terrible shape,” said Clark. “I’ve brought their concerns to the attention of MTO officials, but we haven’t seen any improvement. I’m confident the Auditor General is now going to get to the bottom of what’s behind these poor road conditions and the numerous collisions and highway closures we’ve seen this winter.” According to a press release, Clark’s motion calls on the Auditor General to review MTO’s Winter Maintenance Program and the contracts ne-

gotiated by the ministry with contractors across the province. The report is to be completed before the end of this year. Among the issues to be investigated are: • the number of winter maintenance vehicles in use, • circuit times for operators, • the proper and efficient use of chemical melters and salt by contractors, • hours of operation, • response times. The scope of the review is to include one year prior to when the Winter Maintenance Program was privatized. “Ensuring our roads are as safe as possible during the winter driving season is one of the fundamental responsibilities of the Ministry of Transportation,” stressed Clark. “There’s no question the minister has failed Ontarians in that regard this winter. I welcome the Auditor General’s probe and look forward to a report that will help prevent this from ever happening again.” Locally, Clark wrote to MTO officials in support of a request by United Counties of Leeds and Grenville council for an urgent meeting to discuss Submitted photo poor driving conditions on Highways 401, 416 and 15. Although the letter was sent more than a month Wearing Pink for Anti-Bullying Day at the YMCA of Brockville and Area, Wednesday Feb. ago, a date for that meeting has not been set. 26 was from left, Anna Hudson, Tina Suave and Nicky Dunster.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Theatre saviours should be honoured for hard work DEAR EDITOR:

Back in 1958/59 the “Town of Brockville” consisted of a mayor and five “wards”, each with two Aldermen. There were two major projects being wildly debated at the time. One was the question of, should the empty Regent Theatre area become the location of a new Loblaw’s Groceteria Building, or should the old empty theatre be kept where it was located? A decision about the Regent Theatre could not be reached and a vote on that question was left in the legal hands of the residents of Brockville. However, that result was an 80 per cent response in favour of keeping the Regent where it stands. Aside from the town’s council debating, the earlier lobbying work was done by two Brockville gentlemen and it became of paramount importance in that the two spearheaded the council’s decision to turn the matter over to Brockvillians. Those two gentlemen were Kenneth Eland and Arthur Wood. They became the two significant champions in bringing about the arduous

work of cleaning out the years of dust and grime from off the stage and from beneath the under the stage lower dressing rooms. But thanks to the direction and guidance of the two men, both of whom worked hard in getting the stage ready, a first live performance was held in 1960. Today, not only do we have a live theatre, known as the Brockville Arts Centre (BAC), beside the Metro grocery story, but also the tired old “Regent” has become augmented – through the personal and financial fundraising efforts of many people – as an excellent place to rehearse and to hold meetings, known today as the Musitheatre addition. I shall end on a suggestive note that the names and photographs of the late Kenneth Eland and Arthur Wood be placed at the top of the list of original theatre saviors, by the Brockville Theatre Honours Committee. Donn Fowler, Brockville

Editorial – Between full-time jobs, shuttling kids to and from extra-curricular activities and the rising cost of food, sometimes it can be difficult to create healthy meals at home. But the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, along with help from the Dietitians of Canada, can help solve that problem. March is Nutrition Month and the health unit has set up a page on its website where, throughout the month, one will find tips and links on how to stay healthy. It will include, recipes, videos and other information for residents on making fast, well-rounded meals and snacks at home. According to Marie Traynor, a registered dietitian with the health unit, people need to “manage time, encourage creativity, improve food budgets, learn and share important life skills, reinforce cooking lessons and experience different tastes, colours and textures” in order to re-energize themselves in the kitchen. Just like it’s important to have positive role models in other aspects of life, so too is having a strong kitchen role model to emulate. While easy, prepared foods can create a diet that’s too high in added fat, salt and sugar and can also be more expensive than creating meals at home. By shopping smart in the grocery store and by planning a menu for the week’s worth of foods on the weekend, it’s easier to keep costs down and eat more healthily. And you don’t have to be a professional chef to do any of this. Setting goals, finding simple recipes, involving the whole family in meal preparation and taking the time to make a lifestyle change is all you need. Throughout March, visit www.dietitians.ca or www.healthunit.org for valuable tips on eating nutritious, healthy meals.

A night at community rink left everyone warm with contentment Lifestyle - It certainly wasn’t anything to get up in the middle of the night and write home about, according to my cousins from Ottawa. They had rinks inside of heated buildings and ice as smooth as glass, whereas the little rink behind the Northcote School was anything but grand. But it suited our purposes well, and certainly got lots of use once the ice was built up on the patch of ground that in the summertime was nothing but weeds and hay growing willy-nilly. The rink had stand-up boards on two sides, and each end was open so that we could just walk right onto the ice easily. As soon as the winter had settled in, the boys of senior fourth, along with their fathers, started building up the ice. It was a major job, since every drop of water had to be hauled from the farms around, or from the pump in the middle of the schoolyard. It was brought in big barrels, and timed so that many sleighs would arrive at the same time, and the

water dumped on the spot. Using pails to take water from the school pump was a wasted exercise, since most of it would be spilled before hitting the rink, and a pail of water did little to build up the ice. No one got on the ice until it was of the depth the Senior Fourth boys thought was proper, and this could take weeks at the start of winter. And then, finally, it was deemed suitable! And what a day that was. Miss Crosby, who excused no one from a full day of schooling, on that day, cut the classes short, allowed us to bring Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104 Regional General Manager Peter O’Leary poleary@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 112 Group Publisher Duncan Weir dweir@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 164 Managing Editor Ryland Coyne

what passed for skates, and have an hour of fun before heading home. And what an hour it was! Of course, the ice was full of lumps and cracks and ridges, and until we learned what area of the rink to avoid, we spent most of the time picking ourselves up off the new ice. A couple of the farm fathers had made wide-bladed shovels, attached to the handle of forks, and the rule was that after each use, the ice had to be shovelled off, and the accumulated snow shoved through the two openings at either end of the rink. The older boys took advantage of this chore, and did it with their skates still, on, and I noticed they always managed to get a good skate in while doing it, and often had a fast game of shinny in the bargain. If there wasn’t a Saturday night house party in the community, whole families went to the Northcote School rink. Most came on big flat-bottomed sleighs, and they circled a big steel barrel that was

filled with firewood, and once lit, the flames shot a mile into the sky, and even though there was scarcely enough heat to take the chill out of your bones, it gave a bit of relief to the freezing night air. Women sat on the sleighs wrapped in blankets, and most of the men stood around the burning barrel, smoking their pipes and talking farm talk. We children put on our skates on the sleighs, and mine were those hateful bob skates, dull as dishwater, and rusted brown. I used them until Miss Crosby one night, arrived with a pair of regular skates for me...handing them to me in a brown paper bag so that no one would know of the deed. I was ecstatic and finally was able to keep up with bad Marguirite, who not only had new skates, they were as white as the driven snow, and her mother had attached tiny silver bells to the laces, and she tinkled like someone from a fairy tale as she skated around and around the rink. There was no music of course. Not like in the rink in Renfrew where we once

went to see an ice revue brought out from Ottawa, and listened to songs like “Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer true”, and “The Skater’s Waltz”. We would skate until Mr. Briscoe blew a whistle and that meant the fun was over for that night. We would try to do one more “Crack the Whip”, and then the boys would use the big shovels and scrape off the chips and snow, and another couple of barrels of water, kept on one of the big sleighs would be poured over the surface of the rink, left to freeze over solid before our next night of skating. Then we would all head into the Northcote School where the Ladies Aid would have big pots of steaming hot chocolate sitting on the stove in the middle of the schoolroom. Always there were oatmeal cookies and ginger snaps, all of which vanished in jig time. I would tumble into bed, happily exhausted, with my toes still cold as ice, See MARY page 10 • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

Sports – A hockey scrimmage took place at the Rotary Rink grand opening on Family Day, Feb. 17 at Rotary Park in downtown Brockville (old Brockville Memorial Centre). Prior to the noon ribbon cutting, families were skating on the artificial ice surface, eating hot dogs and enjoying hot chocolate. Although delayed due to weather conditions and other issues, the sun shone brightly as dignitaries gathered to officially cut the ribbon. “This is a very special day for Brockville,” said Senator Robert (Bob) Runciman. “This ice pad is where a lot of us grew up playing hockey, minor hockey, inter-city hockey and I cried the day they started to tear this down. I want to compliment Rotary, Brent (Collett) and his crew. I was glad to have the opportunity to play a small role in making this

The ribbon cutting ceremony for the Rotary Park hockey rink took place on Family Day, Feb. 17 with many people, young and old gathering to enjoy hot dogs, hot chocolate and to take a skate on the artificial ice. Taking part in the ribbon cutting are (left to right) 1000 Islands Rotary President Steve Read, Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown, Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark, Brockville mayor David Henderson, Senator Robert (Bob) Runciman, Rotarians Tim Ross, Brent Collett, Ryan Billing, Maple Leaf Sport Entertainment representative Nilesh Chauhan, Scott Fraser, and City of Brockville director of operations Conal Cosgrove. all possible.” Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown offered his congratulatory remarks to Rotary and those involved in this project. “We had the outdoor rink here for quite a few years but now it is going to have an extended season that will allow so many of our young people and older folks as well, to come and use it,” acknowledged Brown. Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark reflected on his role as a proud Rotarian and how the local clubs put their motto of Service Above Self, into practice. “I want to thank you, not just on the fundraising on the first phase, second phase, but you are very enthusiastic about the third phase and I cannot wait to see the next transformation of Rotary Park,” said Clark. “I think this is a wonderful recreation space that can be used all year round.” When Brockville mayor David Henderson skated to the microphone, he revealed that eight years ago a discussion ensued as to how artificial ice could be brought to this location. “It started, it faltered, it started, it faltered,” said Henderson. “Then the Rotary Club got on board and made it happen. Rotary got a bunch of other community people involved and the same with every big project that happens out there, that’s when a lot of people kick in. When a lot of people see it as a good project, the momentum starts rolling and other organizations put money towards it and resources towards it. This is what you end

up with, a beautiful facility.” Representing both Rotary Clubs in Brockville was Rotarian Steve Read with congratulatory words for those who contributed their time, money and vision. A major fundraiser of the second phase was secured by people going online to vote through Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment’s (MLSE) site, which saw a reward of $50,000. Nilesh Chauhan of MLSE, who handles community partnerships, came from Toronto to speak to those gathered. “That is just one of the little things that we love,” said Chauhan. “To help out a community partner that believes in exactly what we believe in; which is giving kids the opportunity to play sports and recreational activities.” All smiles Winding up the speeches prior to cutting the ribbon was Brent Collett, chair of the committee that headed up the renovations to Rotary Park. “We are all smiles today,” said Collett. “We could not have done this without it being a community project and the Carolyn Sifton Foundation came in big time for us, in donations and Rotary committed $100,000 over five years, and the city came in. So Phase I and Phase II are completed. We are looking forward to Phase III.” Phase III will finish the Rotary Park project which will include the installation of basketball courts.

New device helps victims of violence feel safer in their environments By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Kimberly Wright, community development coordinator of Interval House, Brockville, and Sonya Jodoin, executive director for Victim Services of Leeds Grenville, show a new GPS device put in place recently to help victims of domestic violence feel safer in their home. nervous, due to living so far away from the city. With hardly any family in the area and friends in the city I felt like I was exposed and alone.

quick response time was and that I could go to a safe place and be found without having to use a phone or cell phone. Because of the GPS tracker I was able to start my new life without fear. Cost option The GPS units are about $250 each, and on March 22, there will be a fundraising dart tournament at the Brockville Legion. Registration is at 11 a.m. and cost is $20 per person. If you don’t have a team (mixed, two men and two women), you will be assigned one. In the past, this dart tournament has raised funds for the Interval House in Brockville. For Kimberly Wright, community

development coordinator at Interval House, it was a no-brainer. “We don’t mind at all, since the funding is helping victims of violence… it’s what we all do. We are all helping the same people, so it’s a wonderful fit.” Wright added that this is a great opportunity for the community to get involved and help in some way, no matter how small. For more information on the dart tournament, please call Donna Carrier to register at 613-489-6800. If you would like to help with a donation for a GPS tracker, please call Jodoin at Victim Services of Leeds Grenville at 613-341-7700, or email her at sonya@vslg.ca.

News – A new mobile tracking device is being used by Victim Services (VS) of Leeds Grenville to help keep an eye on clients whose lives are in danger. Giving peace of mind to victims of spousal abuse is the primary target of the GPS, which works like a lifeline in that once activated by a client, police or emergency workers can be on site to assist within moments. “It’s tracking (a victim) at all times, and once they activate it, it sends a message to the communication centre and we can dispatch emergency workers immediately,” said Sonya Jodoin, the executive director of Victim Services Leeds Grenville. Used for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, or even elder abuse, it’s just one more way that Victim Services can help keep its clients safe. “It’s a tool,” Jodoin said. “It won’t guarantee safety, but for those in a rural area, especially where there is no cell service, it will work to keep track of a victim.” How it works When Victim Services is called out to assist a victim of a domestic assault, volunteers with the organization will help the victim with a game plan for safety measures. That may include ensuring the victim is safe from immediate threats of harm, transportation to a safe place, like Interval House, or it could mean bringing in more VS team members to help board up windows and doors, or change locks, if damage is present. If after an assessment by VS volunteers, it appears that the victim is in immediate danger, they can be assessed for this GPS device. “We do assess victims to see if they would like the extra protection,” said Jodoin. “It won’t work for someone who had the intention of going back to their abusive relationship. There are safety precautions that they must adhere to and they have to work with our staff… checking in frequently, as it’s tracking them at all times.” The organization has just one GPS unit at this time, with the hope of adding another nine devices. The single unit has already helped one victim of domestic violence. Amanda’s story For the sake of her safety, her name has been changed. Amanda Jones says she was able to breathe a sign of relief when she used the GPS device. This is her story… Living in the country and a victim of domestic violence sure did make me feel

VS purchased a GPS tracker for me due to my isolation. I can’t even express in words how much safer I felt. I was able to go outside knowing someone knew where I was. The GPS tracker was always with me and made me secure. I was able to relax and sleep at night knowing it was right beside me. If I had to make a quick exit of my home all I had to do was push the button and find myself a safe place to go, without any phone calls, I knew help would arrive. I didn’t hide in my home anymore, I was able to stop looking over my shoulder as well the tracker was also a relief for my family, just knowing how

Business – A great experience with the Summer Company program has led one young entrepreneur to success. For the second year, Emily Morris, will be running her business To The Stage Theatre Company in 2014. She launched her business last year through the Summer Company program, a program which proved valuable in many ways for the youth. “It was a great experience,” she said. Summer Company is offered through the provincial government’s Young Entrepreneurs Strategy, and administered locally through the Leeds and Grenville Small Business Enterprise Centre. “It was a very new experience, but it was easy,” Morris explained of the application process to take part. Staff at the LGSBEC including Wendy Onstein, manager, and Nicole Hanson, business development coordinator, provided invaluable guidance to work through any issues, she recalled. Not only that, but the world of connections the program opened up for Morris, as well as the opportunity to attend networking events have taught her some business savvy. The 20-year-old of Brockville, now attends Queen’s University in Kingston in Biology, but says while drama is a bit of an opposite interest, it has always been a hobby. To The Stage Theatre Company offers three workshops this summer, “Focusing on developing skills in acting, singing, dance and improvisation.” Her Facebook page describes, “Students will get the opportunity to work with talented, experienced teachers in the theatre community.” Each workshop offers something different, as well as different musicals, the site outlines, including Frozen and Beauty and the Beast. At the end of each workshop, a performance “Showcasing the students’ talents and what they have learned,” will take place. The first session runs from July 7 to 18, the second July 21 to Aug. 1 and the third, Aug. 11 to 22. All workshops are Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. They are for children and youth ages 8 to 16 and the cost is $300 for one workshop, $550 for two and $800 for three. Workshops are being held at St. John’s United Church, 32 Park St., Brockville. For further information or to register please contact Morris at 613345-8611 or by email - tothestagetheatrecompany@gmail.com. Morris walked away from the Summer Company program gaining skills that aren’t just applicable to business, but to everything else in life, she says. In whichever career field a person chooses, she notes, they have to sell themselves – and this program teaches that. While the program may at first seem intimidating – when thinking about applying, she said – there is nothing to be scared of. Over the course of the program, participants may be asked to go outside of their comfort zone, but all is worth it in the end as the lessons can be carried forward in life in many areas. Summer Company The Summer Company program allows youth to build a good business foundation and spread their wings. Open to residences of Leeds and Grenville between the ages of 15 and 29. Applicants must be students, and returning to school in the fall. The program allows participants to start up and run their own summer business.

This competitive program has an application deadline of Friday, May 23. This year will see 18 students take part in this area. Previous Summer Company entrepreneurs have brought many unique ideas to the table – for instance some have undertaken drama camps, woodworking, food industry initiatives, baked goods, tech industry and more. “It’s an excellent program,” Onstein commented in a previous interview. Summer Company participants are provided up to $1,500 in startup funding, and upon successful completion of the program, up to $1,500 at the end of the summer. Participants meet bi-weekly with mentors – business professionals from various sectors in the community. As part of the application process a business plan must be undertaken. However, Hanson described it as “user friendly”, with simple instructions to walk the applicant through the process. Which also includes a cash flow portion. For further information about the program, or how to apply, please contact the Leeds & Grenville Small Business Enterprise Centre at 613-342-8772 x 470 or e-mail enterprisecentre@brockville.com, or visit the website at www. lgsbec.com/.

Women’s local networking groups remain strong By DOREEN BARNES

News – Who better to address the Brockville Women’s Network than an individual who believes in networking, breathes networking and lives networking? Guest speaker for February’s meeting was Shelli Warren, whose passion is to enable people to become the person they want to be on the outside by first becoming that person on the inside. Through her many volunteer roles, Warren has been a mentor, a coach, an organizational leader, a team player, a supporter and the list goes on. In her own words, she feels the happiest when she is with her tribe. “I consider my tribe, women,” expressed Warren. “When I was younger, I started out teaching gymnastics and dance, got involved with women’s groups and for me this is when I feel alive. I get energy from you.” Warren referred to the many women’s networking groups that are now in the local area. “One of the up and coming networks is Kemptville Women in Business,” said Warren. “As well as Dawn Ontario, the DisAbled Women’s Network in Ontario, who have come together to support each other. There’s a lot of good work that is happening right in our own back yards.” She mentioned the various clubs and organizations that are attended by women and men but feels that women like to do things differently. “We like to have structure, we like to have a plan,” said Warren. “We like to sit down and feel like there’s a connection and we are going to learn something. Not

February’s guest speaker at the Brockville Women’s Network meeting was inspirational Shelli Warren talking about the need for women to have their own networking group. She referred to the many all-female networking organizations that now exist in this area as well as provincially. To learn more about Brockville Women’s Network, log onto http://brockvillewomensnetwork.com. men! They want to network after work, over a beer, watching a game or while putting their gear on to get ready to go on the field or the ice. That’s cool and I’m glad they are different.” Warren believes that women join networks because they want to share, to give, to receive and to make a difference. Those organizations with specific criteria for membership can be a challenge and lead some to frustration due to the division of class, especially for those that want to

belong. For those becoming a member in an organization without criterion may be more likely to feel welcomed. Another point Warren mentioned was when an organization drifts off the actual mission. “If you drift off course and cannot get back, the membership will feel that,” indicated Warren. “There’s a sense of uncertainty. The risk could be losing membership because they are not feeling a

connection or living the mission.” One of the latest networks that Warren has been working with and started a sister club here in Brockville is Sheconnex. “We have 400 members in the Sheconnex community, based out of Cornwall, Ottawa, Brockville, Toronto and Montreal area,” said Warren. “When you have a membership that large, you really have to pay attention to what’s working and what’s not. We had to continue revising the website and introduce bloggers and feminars to be able to provide what was being asked for. We continue to evolve.” Warren feels that the executive team of an organization should look at the network as a business. “Women’s groups that are really propelled to the next level of success are the ones that understand themselves as a business,” said Warren. “You have to offer some kind of end product.” Another aspect of women networking is being able to communicate, to share, to learn and be with like minded individuals. Brockville Women’s Network (BWN) According to president Deborah Souder, women can attend the Brockville Women’s Network meetings twice as a guest, prior to joining. The one year membership fee is $50 and members are listed in the BWN directory This group usually has a guest speaker with exception to June and December. “We do not have speakers in June because it is our AGM or we will do it from within the network group,” said Souder. “As well, for December we have a Christmas fundraising dinner and auction for the scholarships.

When asked why women should consider joining, Souder was very quick to say that it’s an opportunity for women to meet other women in our community. “This is a great way to advertise their business, to make connections in the community for jobs or volunteering,” indicated Souder. “It’s (the meeting) a combination of entertainment, education and some fun.” BWN supports Cunningham/Lor Scholarship fund which has existed since 1996. It is an award given twice a year to women pursuing post secondary education. Candidates must demonstrate and support the group’s motto, Women Supporting Women. “As well, we do not have an official charity, although we do support the food bank,” said Souder. “During the course of the year from time to time, for instance in September everyone was asked to bring some school supplies and we distributed those to two schools. In October, people were asked to bring hat and mitts for the Snowsuit Drive. So we do that periodically when there’s something going on in the community. But even with our charity work we try to focus on women helping women.” Monthly meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month at the Brockville Country Club with networking at 5:30 p.m. and dinner served at 6:30 p.m. The next meeting is Thursday, March 13 and for reservation call Kim Fenn 613924-0165 or email ktmg4@sympatico.ca.

A Celebrity Server night was held at Boston Pizza Feb. 26. The Brockville Community Care and Share Golf Tournament Committee Night was held in support of the upcoming fourth annual golf tournament Friday, Aug. 22. The tournament raises funds for the non-government funded Brockville Cardiovascular Program at the Brockville General Hospital. Three service clubs joined together three years ago - Brockville Civitan, Brockville Kinsmen and Brockville Lions Club with the Brockville Highland Golf to put on this event. That night, 10 per cent of all food purchases went to the BCP. This is the first of several upcoming fundraisers for the group this year, leading up to the golf tournament. Also set to take place is a barbecue at The Butcher Shop, May 24, and one at the BGH June 6. So far the tournament has raised approximately $150,000 for the program, which is a supervised four to 12-week post operative recovery program. According to information provided by the committee - there have been more than 400 graduates of the program since 2009.

Epilepsy Awareness Month â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The side effects of this neurological disorder News - Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: March is epilepsy awareness month, culminating in Purple Day on March 26. This is the first in a series of articles provided by the Epilepsy & Seizure Disorder Resource Centre of South Eastern Ontario, as part of their month-long awareness campaign. Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by varying intensities of recurrent seizures. While most people with epilepsy (60-70 per cent) manage to control their seizures with medication, the potential side effects of medication remain ever present. Memory deficits, weight gain, sleep disruptions and hyperactivity are only a few side effects that can complicate the management of this disorder. However, the social stigma against epilepsy has

historically created perhaps the most crippling side effects, which persist to this day. Many people with epilepsy can attest to how difficult a balancing act it is to deal with the daily tolls of the disorder as well as the social stigma that surrounds it. The strain of maintaining a functional lifestyle amid lack of public knowledge can create debilitating, but preventable, social and emotional side-effects. Seizures are frequently portrayed in popular culture as being overly dramatic and alarming. The public has been primed to be shocked at the mention of epilepsy, therefore often leaving people with the condition nervous to disclose their epilepsy due to fear of personal embarrassment. Unsurprisingly, when the public deems epilepsy

and its resulting seizures as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;unacceptableâ&#x20AC;? topic to broach, people living with epilepsy can easily feel ostracized from their peers and lack the stable support network that they require. The emotional impact of epilepsy can be lessened when the public becomes educated on how to debunk myths surrounding epilepsy. Such myths include believing that epilepsy is contagious (it is not), or that epilepsy affects intelligence (people with epilepsy have the same range of intelligence as their peers). An effective way to address these misrepresentations of the disorder is to provide education through experiential teaching by people who have epilepsy, especially to children. To target the younger demographic and squash common misconceptions before they become entrenched will foster a prosperous environment for children in schools, and also create future adults who are well equipped to provide support to the 1 in 100 who live with epilepsy in Canada. With education, a person becomes equipped to alleviate some of the burden that people carry when they hide a part of themselves from their community. By becoming informed about epilepsy, individuals can actively chip away at the stigma that encases this prevalent disorder, and reduce these harmful, social side-effects. The goal of the 2014 Epilepsy Awareness Month campaign at the Epilepsy and Seizure Disorder Centre of South Eastern Ontario is to reduce the

stigma surrounding epilepsy by improving community understanding of the disorder. A variety of events are being offered this month. The campaign is launching with Purple Pucks for Epilepsy. The Epilepsy Resource Centre has partnered with their local OHL team, the Kingston Frontenacs, to host a special game night in support of Epilepsy Awareness and Purple Day. This event takes place on Friday, March 7, at 7 p.m. against the Oshawa Generals at the K-Rock Centre in Kingston. On Saturday, March 22, the Epilepsy Resource Centre will be hosting a Purple Pancake breakfast in support of epilepsy awareness in Gananoque. There will also be a speaker night in Brockville, entitled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Living Well with Epilepsy: Stories and Strategiesâ&#x20AC;? with presenter Susan Harrison, the executive director of the Epilepsy Resource Centre. It is being held on March 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Community & Primary Health Care (CPHC), 2235 Parkedale Ave., Brockville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking forward to celebrating epilepsy awareness month with the community at all of these events,â&#x20AC;? said Hanna Kitchingman, youth coordinator at the Epilepsy Resource Centre, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is welcome to join us at the events to learn more about epilepsy, and show their support for those affected by the disorder.â&#x20AC;?

in-Transition Worker will be to assist the young participants in this program to access existing resources and supports in the community. These can include access to educational resources, employment services and training, housing supports, physical and mental health services and access to life skills training. EEC assistant director Susan Watts notes that this new worker will complement many of the services which the agency already provides. “The Employment and Education Centre has been providing employment services and retraining assistance to young people for nearly 30 years,” she explained. “To focus on this particular group of young people is a great way to make sure they are able to have a successful transition to the world of work or post-secondary education.” The EEC is one of up to 50 agencies across Ontario which has received funding for a Youth-in-Transition worker. The idea for this program stemmed from a 2012 report done by the Office of the Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth which detailed issues of youth who were currently and formerly in CAS Care. The EEC is a not-for-profit employment and education organization which has served Brockville and area job seekers since 1985. The agency provides a wide scope of services including employment counselling, job development, a resource centre,

SAFETY TIPS Oil Lamps: Oil lamps or lanterns provide excellent light but can be a fire hazard if placed too close to combustibles. Keep oil lamps away from combustibles and out of the wind. Make sure they are kept in a secure place where they cannot be knocked over. Refill the lamps outdoors or away from combustibles and other people.

Business – Even under the best of circumstances, the transition from carefree youth to responsible adult can be rocky. And for young people who are leaving the care of Family and Children’s Services (FCS), that transition can be tougher still. That’s where the Employment and Education Centre (EEC) comes in. The agency recently has received a contract from the Ministry of Children and Youth Services to employ a Youthin-Transition worker whose job it is to help young people between 18 and 21 who are leaving the care of FCS. This program will also extend non-financial support to current or former crown wards aged 16 to 24 inclusive. The Youth-in-Transition worker (YITW) will help youth who are ‘agingout’ of foster care to assist them in making decisions to ensure a successful adult life. This worker will help eligible young adults both identify and access adult services which are relevant to them as they transition from dependent youth to independent adults. Perhaps most importantly, youth in this program will also receive emotional support and guidance as they evolve to adults. This new program is funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services. EEC will be offering the Youth in Transition worker program throughout Leeds and Grenville with funding to support 65 youth in the initial year. A large part of the role of the Youth-

Ad & Sales Club reviews corporate dress and business etiquette By DOREEN BARNES

Business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Februaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ad and Sales Meeting welcomed author, professor and owner of PRIME Expressions, Catherine Bell. Bell specializes in image management and protocol issues that can affect success. Her warm engaging smile and sense of humour led to a very enjoyable presentation sharing her knowledge on dress and dining etiquette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ABC of professionalism is appearance, be-

haviour and communication,â&#x20AC;? said Bell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is business presence?â&#x20AC;? According to Bell, presence is very personable. A person with presence may be an individual who is listening intently to those to whom they speak or are poised, knowledgeable, competent, are encouraging and present in the moment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wide range of things and everyone can have it,â&#x20AC;? indicated Bell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something for just a few people. Even shy people can create pres-

ence.â&#x20AC;? So what is true wealth and its association with presence? Money! Not so indicated Bell as she referred to the close link to personal values. She said the overall theme that emerged was relative to: â&#x20AC;˘ establishing meaningful relationships, â&#x20AC;˘ being fully engaged with life, â&#x20AC;˘ having peace of mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each of us is our own company and we have a brand,â&#x20AC;? said Bell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regardless of whether we work for someone or not, we have a brand and you have to figure out what your three brand words are.â&#x20AC;? Moving on, Bell spoke about the ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, starting with business appearance. One guideline that Bell talked about was the positioning of hands when standing to give a presentation. Keep the hand and arms near the waist/navel area. When the hands are by the sides, the audience will notice the negative body language. As well, for dress or clothing, the same colour from head to toe is powerful, but when it is dark, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even more powerful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have what I call a ladder of formality,â&#x20AC;? indicated Bell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be able to go from informal to formal you need to strategically look at things. The five accessories that will make you look more formal are accessories, tailoring, colour, fabric and clothing layers.â&#x20AC;? For menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business suits, the three-piece as well as the double-breasted are back in fashion along with the narrow lapels with a narrow tie that reaches the belt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A tucked in shirt will always look more dressed up,â&#x20AC;? added Bell. Bell noted that for women with a tailored suit, they should consider hosiery the same colour as the shoes or outfit. A definite no-no is wearing white hosiery with black shoes. In fact, she said that is the same for men and their socks. They should match the colour of the pant being worn or the colour of shoes and long enough to cover the leg when sitting. Another match is the belt to the shoes. As for the height of a womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skirt, the norm is one American dollar bill above the knee, but as Bell stated, it depends on the size of the women. When sitting down the fabric may rise higher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your glasses are really important,â&#x20AC;? said Bell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want to have a great business like look, there are certain glasses to wear, which is usually dark (frames) and there are certain glasses to wear for fun.â&#x20AC;? The appropriate watch should be worn with the outfit. Do not wear a sports watch with a dress suit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It steals the presence,â&#x20AC;? said Bell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you take out your cell phone to check the time what do

She touched on the ABC of professionalism, what true wealth is and why presence and relationships are so important. people see? You are not concentrating on the other person. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge.â&#x20AC;? Bell also gave some tips on business dining starting with sitting down to a table with clients: - Do not take your drink to the table, - Keys, purses, cell phones, etc should not be set on the table, - For a coat or jacket, find a coat check and do not put it on the back of a chair, - To remember which bread plate is yours, form two fists with the right hand looking like a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for drink and the left is a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for bread plate, - Napkins should be placed between bread plate and meal plate, on the left, - Only wrists should rest on the table, - Bring food to your mouth, - Butter a portion of the roll, break off and eat, - Spoon soup away from the face, no slurping, - Balance the utensil on middle finger, - Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t death grip your utensils. In the business world, appearance, behaviour and communication can make or break some deals. If you travel outside of Canada on business, Bell suggested speaking with an etiquette consultant in that country.

REAL ESTATE CONNECTION A WEEKLY GUIDE TO REAL ESTATE IN THE PRESCOTT, BROCKVILLE AND GANANOQUE AREAS

Housing affordability remains “strained,” RBC report outlines historical norms. Owning a condominium at market value is also somewhat of a stretch, but not nearly as much as that for detached homes. RBC’s measures rose for all housing categories in the fourth quarter: by 0.2 percentage points for both two-storey homes (to 63.7 per cent) and condominium apartments (to 33.9 per cent), and by 0.1 percentage points for bungalows (to 55.6 per cent). The RBC report notes that while affordability tensions may have been a factor in a 6.3 per cent decline in home resales, the weather - including a major ice storm in December,- and a slowdown in new listings in the second half of 2013 were likely the more dominant factors. Ottawa - Employment uncertainty could be eroding buyer confidence Home resales in the Ottawa area fell to their lowest levels since mid-2010 in the fourth quarter of 2013. The drop - which may reflect increased employment uncertainty in the area after a loss of 20,000 jobs in the Ottawa-Gatineau area during the first three quarters of 2013 - followed a year during which

CMHC to increase mortgage insurance premiums Business – Following the annual review of its insurance products and capital requirements, CMHC will increase its mortgage loan insurance premiums for homeowner and 1 – 4 unit rental properties effective May 1. The increase applies to mortgage loan insurance premiums for owner occupied, self-employed and 1-to-4 unit rental properties, including low-ratio refinance premiums. This does not apply to mortgages currently insured by CMHC. CMHC’s capital management framework is consistent with international practices and Canadian guidelines for mortgage insurers. Increased capital targets are consistent with Canadian and international industry trends and

makes the financial system more stable and resilient. “The higher premiums reflect CMHC’s higher capital targets,” said Steven Mennill, CMHC’s vice-president, Insurance Operations. “CMHC’s capital holdings reduce Canadian taxpayers’ exposure to the housing market and contribute to the long term stability of the financial system.” For the average Canadian homebuyer requiring CMHC insured financing, the higher premium will result in an increase of approximately $5 to their monthly mortgage payment. This is not expected to have a material impact on the housing market.

will increase by approximately 15 per cent, on average, for all loan-to-value ranges. CMHC reviews its premiums on an annual basis and, going forward, plans to announce decisions on premiums in the first quarter of each year. The homeowner premium increase follows changes CMHC made to its portfolio insurance product earlier this year.

As Canada’s national housing agency, CMHC draws on more than 65 years of experience to help Canadians access a variety of quality, environmentally sustainable, and affordable housing solutions that will continue to Effective May 1, CMHC Pur- create vibrant and healthy comchase (owner occupied 1 – 4 unit) munities and cities across the mortgage insurance premiums country.

activity maintained a fairly steady pace near its 10-year average. “Ottawa’s supply-demand conditions evolved mostly in favour of buyers over the past two years and more recently buyers used this stronger negotiating power to drive housing prices lower,” said Wright. “This has led to an improvement in affordability in the Ottawa area.” RBC measures for Ottawa declined by 0.4 percentage points for both twostorey homes and bungalows to 38.4 and 36.7 per cent, respectively. The measure for condominium apartments remained unchanged at 25.1 per cent. RBC’s housing affordability measure for the benchmark detached bungalow in Canada’s largest cities in the fourth quarter of 2013 is as follows: Vancouver 81.6 (down 2.3 percentage points from the previous quarter); Toronto 55.6 (up 0.1 percentage points); Montreal 38.8 (unchanged); Ottawa 36.7 (down 0.4 percentage points); Calgary 33.8 (down 0.2 percentage points); Edmonton 33.3 (up 0.1 percentage points). The RBC Housing Affordability Measure, which has been compiled since

1985, is based on the costs of owning a detached bungalow (a reasonable property benchmark for the housing market in Canada) at market value. Alternative housing types are also presented, including a standard two-storey home and a standard condominium apartment. The higher the reading, the more difficult it is to afford a home at market values. For example, an affordability reading of 50 per cent means that homeownership costs, including mortgage payments, utilities and property taxes, would take up 50 per cent of a typical household’s monthly pre-tax income. It is important to note that RBC’s measure is designed to gauge ownership costs associated with buying a home at present market values. It is not a representation of the actual costs incurred by current owners, the vast majority of whom have bought in the past at significantly different values than those prevailing in the latest period.

sures, which capture the proportion of pre-tax household income needed to service the costs of owning a home at market values, eased slightly in Ontario in the fourth quarter of 2014 (a decline in the measure represents an improvement in affordability). RBC’s measures declined by 0.1 percentage points for bungalows and twostorey homes to 44.7 per cent and 50.3 per cent, respectively, while condo affordability remained unchanged at 29.5 per cent. Toronto-area affordability erodes across the board in Q4 “Toronto was the only market in Canada that saw across-the-board deterioration in affordability during the fourth quarter,” said Wright. “While affordability measures rose only mildly, they added to a series of increases since 2010 and extended the well-entrenched deteriorating trend in the city, particularly for the single-detached categories.” Owning a two-storey home or a bungalow in Toronto now appears to be a bit of a stretch for prospective homebuyers, RBC says, as measures for these categories stand noticeably higher than their

Business - Housing affordability in Ontario remained somewhat strained in the fourth quarter of 2013, although there was some modest reprieve in the detached homes categories for the first time in a year, according to the latest Housing Trends and Affordability Report issued recently by RBC Economics Research. RBC notes that the persistence of possible affordability-related stress in the single-detached homes categories may have contributed to a moderation in housing market activity in the closing quarter of last year. “Home resales fell 4.0 per cent between the third and fourth quarters of 2013 in Ontario, yet the level of market activity in Ontario essentially matched the 10-year average, which is hardly a sign of weakness,” said Craig Wright, senior vice-president and chief economist, RBC. “A drop in new listings may have also contributed to the moderation in activity, possibly frustrating some potential buyers who may have opted to wait for more suitable offerings at a later date.” RBC’s housing affordability mea-

Commonwealth Public School offers welcoming atmosphere News – Commonwealth Public School is a valued institution with a welcoming atmosphere where parents believe the quality of instruction is high, a school review has shown. However, like other schools more work must be done in math and the school hopes to increase student engagement by increasing parent involvement in their child’s education. “Parents rate Commonwealth very high on meeting the learning needs of their children,” said superintendent David Coombs, after the review was presented to the board

of trustees recently. “Staff members care deeply for the well-being of their students.” The review suggests that 98 per cent of parents believe instruction at Commonwealth is of a high quality, 95 per cent believe their child is making good progress, and 94 per cent feel their child is safe at school. The report also notes the school is the “hub” of the community, housing programs such as the Ontario Early Years Centre, and that volunteers and community agencies play a large role in serving student needs. The review suggests that provin-

cial standardized testing scores must improve. EQAO data shows a significant dip between Grades 3 and 6, especially in mathematics. Coombs says math instruction has to focus on process skills – such as reasoning and problem solving – as well as on computational skills and data must be used to guide all instructional practices. The superintendent says communication is still a concern at the school, although the review shows the school is improving – especially through the use of social media. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

the permanent stage was reached in the fall. This amount, together with a grant secured from the Trillium Foundation, enabled the building committee to undertake having both phases of the stage built at the same time. Drawings were finalized and detailed quotes obtained in early January for a start date of Jan. 24. Much credit goes to Jim Mallar of FTCA who co-ordinated and managed the project on behalf of the partnership, as well as to the men who executed the work. The contractors include Alex Santos and Brendan Plunkett of Hubbard & Co., Mike Campbell of Campbell and Sons, and Steve Gibson of SanSteve. Sincere appreciation and thanks go to the entire team for bringing this project to fruition on time and within budget. The new stage is a great asset to the community and to St. Andrew’s, Prescott’s cultural venue. An official launch is planned sometime in the spring, date and details to follow. In the meantime, FTCA invites the general public to come see the new stage “in action” at the final concerts of the 2013-2014 season. For more details and ticket prices, please visit their website at www.ftca.ca. Submitted by the Fort Town Concert Association.

Just in case you haven’t had enough snow – join in for an Arctic Odyssey Events - In the summer of 2010, Seeley’s Bay writer and story teller, James Raffan headed to Iceland and began a multi-part, three-year journey that took him around the world at the Arctic Circle. Concerned that ice and polar bears were the only images feeding the interests of people looking north because of global warming, he wanted to put a human face on climate change. So bit by bit, country by country, from Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland—meeting, talking and travelling with northern peoples of all kinds—he travelled the extent of Arctic Russia and Siberia before crossing Alaska, Canada, Greenland and back to Iceland. The result of this Odyssey is a book called Circling the Midnight Sun that is to be published by HarperCollins in the fall of 2014. Join Raffan as he takes you around the world in 60 minutes, introducing you to some of these remarkable northerners and reading some sneak excerpts from his upcoming book. Sunday, March 16, 2 p.m., Seeley’s Bay Community Hall, $10 at the door, fully accessible, hot chocolate and cookies served afterwards.

The story of old bottles and Slow cooker Irish stew a hearty dinner option crocks in Mallorytown March 23 Events - Gary Spicer, a lifelong Brockvillian, will be giving a presentation: Old Bottles and Crocks -The Stories They Tell on Sunday, March 23, 2 p.m. at the Mallorytown Community Centre -76 County Rd. 5, Mallorytown. This presentation, sponsored by the Thousand Islands River Heritage Society, will be informative and include a display of early bottles and pottery. Spicer has collected old Brockville bottles and pottery since 1971. He started as a digger and then in 1976 continued his pursuit of these artifacts as a scuba diver. He has continued diving for the last 25 years. In his pursuit of local bottles, he has

displayed at the Stittsville Flea Market and attended numerous auctions. He has set up at seven bottle shows in Ontario. His book, Nineteenth Century Brockville Uncovered, is the history of Brockville told through its old bottles and pottery starting with the oldest identifiable bottle from the year 1840. At least 95 per cent of the book’s contents have yet to been seen in any other book previously published pertaining to Brockville. The book was entirely researched and edited by Spicer and published by Precision Publishing of Smiths Falls, Ontario. It will be available for sale on March 23 at the presentation.

Working women: finding new paths!

Choosing a profession is, first and foremost, an expression of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personality. This choice should be made according to personal tastes and aptitudes; why blindly follow the beaten path if something else appeals to you? After all, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spend a large part of your life in the workforce, so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re much better off if you can live out your passions in your work. One way to put an end to job discrimination is to provide women with a range of career choices that allow for flexible working conditions and a way to reintegrate after having children. Making such changes may seem threatening, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a normal reaction when entrenched attitudes are overturned. It is not so long ago that medicine and engineering were all-male preserves, where the â&#x20AC;&#x153;invasionâ&#x20AC;? of women was derided. In their own ways and in their own eras,

women such as Elizabeth Blackwell, Irma Levasseur, and Lucille Teasdale defied prejudice to practice medicine in more than just subordinate roles. These days, the healthcare system couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do without women. Any progress is a step forward for women and enriches those sectors which welcome these intrepid heroines. And the traditionally female-dominated sectors are still well populated by women who want to make use of their desire to care for, educate, and help others. Changing the rules of the game was certainly overdue. There is no good reason why more women shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t migrate towards mechanics, carpentry, forestry, military service, or road transportation. Every trade has its value, and everyone has their own likes and dislikes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfectly legitimate to want your livelihood to be a source of accomplishment, pride, and personal satisfaction.

After almost 30 years in the ďŹ&#x201A;ower business, Tammy and her husband, Scott, have built a huge following since taking over the business three years ago, due to excellent products and superior customer service. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always something new, so drop by today.

sures that shouldn’t be forgotten. Here are just a few: • Enjoying her femininity and sensuality: wearing stiletto heels, silky outfits, and sexy underwear; being proud of her curves and knowing how to show them off to advantage. • Making the most of her beauty: trying out new looks with makeup and jewellery; treating herself to manicures and beauty treatments; adorning herself with sequins; and raving over a new shampoo that promises to make her hair even more beautiful, voluminous, and shiny. • Playing at being a lady: having doors opened for her; being carried across the threshold by her husband on her wedding day; sitting on his shoulders to be able to see a live show; curling up lovingly against him on the couch. • Expressing her emotions: being compassionate and not scared to admit her vulnerabilities; crying over a chic flic; dreaming of meeting the Right Guy.

In the past, women were often referred to as the weaker sex. They were seen as overly emotional and were confined to their role as mistresses of the home, in charge of the childrearing and housekeeping but excluded from any real decision making. But today, the modern woman occupies many roles, more than could ever be counted on one hand — she is a mother, friend, lover, partner, confidante, employee, boss, colleague, volunteer, and the list goes on. Of course, with all that to manage, it’s not all smooth sailing in a woman’s world. There are plenty of hurdles to jump every day: reconciling work-life balance; menstruation, pregnancy, nursing, and menopause; pressure to be skinny and free of body hair; competent in running a house; not to mention being there for her loved ones and searching for lost mittens. Yet being a woman also has its share of privileges and small plea-

Prysmian Group launches new wellness program for employees Business - Prysmian Group has announced that it has launched a wellness program, called PowerFit at its Johnstown plant to assist employees and their families with all facets of fitness, health, nutrition, well-being and disease management.

lieve that overall physical and emotional fitness starts in the home and therefore unlike most traditional employee wellness programs, the Prysmian Group has opened up its program to the whole family. We are proud to welcome Tri Fit’s Becky Graham, registered kinesiologist and personal trainer, who grew up and went to school in the area as our wellness coach.” Not only is the program an added benefit to an already progressive employee benefits plan, but it should over time also prove beneficial to the plant’s overall performance.

Welcome back Mr. Carter - Blackhawks rack up two more wins last week Sports - â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Velvet Fogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rob Carter and his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Scorpio Lineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; linemates â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Champâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Wayne Morrow and J R â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Buckleysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ryan have been struggling to find the back of the net during the second half of their season. Well folks things started to change for that struggling trio last week and it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have come at a better time. In the first half (18 games) Carter scored 20 goals Ryan had 17 and Morrow chipped in with 11. But in the second half of the season so far Carter has notched 11, Ryan has five and Morrow has six, they still have four games remaining. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those guys have carried our team during the first half of the season and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My Generationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; line has been there for us throughout this second half. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working hard getting some pretty good chances, it was just a matter of time before that puck started going into the net for them,â&#x20AC;? Blackhawk management said at his media conference after the Flamingos game. Last Wednesday night Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s empty netter with only 32 ticks left on the clock propelled the Blackhawks to a 4-2 win and recorded their 15th road â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; over a star studded Spencerville Bull Dogs team. Then last Saturday night the Morrisburg Flamingos came to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Barn on Broadwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fresh off their big upset win over one of the best travelling teams in Eastern Ontario, the Grumpies from Finch. Unfortunately for the bird gang from Morrisburg, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the same fortune in this game as the Hawks held on for a 10-7 shootout win. Blackhawks 10 Flamingos 7 Coming off their impressive performance in Spencerville a few nights earlier, the home team Blackhawks were ramped up and ready to play in this game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a good game for our guys, the Flamingos have a great team and like us they just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quit. They have a lot of firepower over there so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need many chances to score goals. We saw that first hand here tonight. Even when we were up 8-3 they kept coming at us,â&#x20AC;? management

got on the score sheet. Call up defenceman Andrew â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stretchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Warren turned back the clock when he finished off an end to end rush with a beauty to round out the Blackhawk scoring in this tilt. The win improved the Hawks home record to 7-5-1 and an overall record of 22-7-3. The win in Spencerville was the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15th to give them a very impressive 15-2-2 road record for the year. Blackhawks 4 Bull Dogs 2 This was the Blackhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; final road game of the year so they wanted to go out with a bang and did they. Those who played in or watched this one said it was a classic. This game had great goaltending at both ends, great defensive play and wow was there ever a lot of great scoring opportuniexplained. With the TMBHL (The Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beer Hockey League) trade deadline looming on Wednesday March 5, the Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; players were out playing for their jobs for next season. Nobody wants to get that dreaded call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you have been traded for a bag of pucksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. In this situation the Blackhawks are a little short in that department, so trades could be imminent. The two teams escaped the first period knotted 2-2 but not after the Hawks jumped out into a quick 2-0 lead. But in the second the floodgates opened up for the Broadway Avenue Bullies and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pull back any punches. The Blackhawks offence socked in seven goals and that was the TKO they needed to secure the win. Ding, ding, ding. Besides Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three which ended a prolonged slump, Ryan scored for the first time in eight games for the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Scorpio Lineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The red hot â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My Generation Lineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; also contributed, Daryl â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stumpyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Whiteland and the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hottest sniper Jeff â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youngbloodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; June each tickled the twine once. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Silencerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Trevor Murray was a dominant force on the ice in this game and scored two goals for his efforts. His line mate â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Rubbermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jason Perkins also

ties at both ends of the rink as well. In the end it took Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 28th of the season into an open net with 30 ticks left on the clock to seal the deal. The Island City lads scored three third period goals to break open a 1-1 tie after two. Dale â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Blockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Visser scored for the Dogs with 1:32 left in the game to pull within one 3-2 before Carter ended the suspense with his empty netter. Both â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;captains of the cable cabanasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; were outstanding in this game. Will McIntyre for the Bull Dogs and Hawks call up Ricky Van Ravenhurst engaged in a head to head battle in this wide open fire wagon brand of hockey that was played. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was pretty busy in that first period but not so much in the second and third. Once our guys got going

it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so bad,â&#x20AC;? Van Ravenhurst said after the game. Both teams were unable to find the back of the net in the opening period and in the second each team did it once apiece setting up for a great third. Luke â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; McArthur put the Hawks up 1-0 before the canine crew barked back minutes later. In the third â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Rookieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jordy Whiteland put the Blackhawks up 2-1 before Cory â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Coreoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Maisoneuve upped the lead to 3-1. Visser narrowed that gap late in the game before Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s empty netter nullified any comeback the Bull Dogs had in mind. This Saturday night at the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Barn on Broadwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the Blackhawks play host to the Gananoque Gryphons, puck drop is 9 p.m.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have reached all our goals regarding Early French Immersion programming, the most important of which is that students have access to the program throughout all of our communities,â&#x20AC;? said chair Greg Pietersma recently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to this successful implementation, we are in a position now to look at building and expanding on our success.â&#x20AC;? The report, entitled the â&#x20AC;&#x153;2014 French as a Second Language Reviewâ&#x20AC;? was submitted by planning and research officer Phil Dawes and Upper Canada Leger Centre executive director Tim Mills. It showed the program had been implemented and taken advantage of in all school families, providing designated EFI sites in all areas, while other schools within the same school families provided Core French and English programming. Thomas will make his report on benchmarks for improvement of participation in May. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Trustees with the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) accepted a comprehensive report recently on the progress made to meet French programming recommendations outlined in the 2008 Boundary 2020 report. The report concluded that all recommendations have been implemented and the board is ready to build on that success. The board will examine ways to potentially expand the Early French Immersion (EFI) program to other schools and ensure that more Upper Canada students continue the program in high school and successfully complete a French Immersion certificate. During the board meeting, trustees asked director David Thomas to present a report outlining key benchmarks for the improvement of participation and support for French immersion within UCDSB schools. Thomas was also asked to develop a process for expanding the EFI program to other schools if demand warrants.

A special thank you to all the staff and residents at Maple View Lodge in Athens for the care and love shown to my sister, Gwen McWhirter in the years she was a resident there. I am sure the staff and volunteers will all miss Gwen as much as her family does. She was always roaming the halls in her wheelchair and laughing and chatting with whomever she would meet in her travels. Although she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take part in all of the many activities provided, she was invited to attend, or go on bus trips, shopping or site seeing. I was always kept up-to-date on any changes in her medication, or if she was having a bad day, missing Bill, even after almost five years. What a fantastic second family she had at Maple View Lodge, who loved her and made her smile. We, the family, appreciate all each of you did in making her life the best it could be. You will each get your reward in heaven. Carole Bourret and Families

TISS edges out BCI for Upper Canada Cup junior boys basketball title Sports – It was a Brockville rivalry on the hard court recently as the Thousand Islands Secondary School (TISS) Pirates edged out the Brockville Collegiate Institute (BCI) Red Rams to take the second annual Upper Canada Cup Junior Boys Basketball Championship at North Grenville District High School. The TISS team battled back from a seven-point deficit at halftime to take the game 41-38, after BCI forward Jack Wilson missed a three-pointer two seconds before the buzzer that could have tied the game. For TISS, it was a particularly sweet victory, said head coach Jason Crotty. “We’ve been in four tournaments this year and even though we’ve made the finals we haven’t been able to pull it (a championship) off,” said Crotty. “It was nice to be able to pull one Photo by JAN MURRAY out and get one against a good team.”

Sports – A co-ed recreational volleyball tournament, organized by Conrad Walpot, was held recently in support of the St. Lawrence District Medical Centre, Lansdowne, Building Expansion Campaign at the Gananoque Secondary School. Four teams participated raising $600 for the campaign. Players are all smiles here as they prepare to begin their first game.

A key difference in the game was the play of centres Austin Allingham, A.J. Barton, and Lucas Morrison who played great both offensively and defensively to contain BCI stars such as point guard Jackson Bayles and centre Cole Wallace. The TISS team’s depth on the bench also helped the Pirates, as the flu and injuries had an impact on BCI’s effectiveness in the final. The match-up was the fourth of the year between the two evenly matched squads, with each team taking two victories, said BCI head coach Tom Bell. Other teams to compete in this year’s tournament included Rockland District High School, Rideau District High School, St. Lawrence Secondary School and Perth and District Collegiate Institute. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

PARK IT! Leave your car at home for a day, week or a month! Try walking or biking. If work is too far away to walk carpool.

The St. Lawrence News published a series of articles on my business. Now everyone knows how great we are!

On Saturday, March 1, the Ottawa Falcons sledge hockey team met and defeated the Kingston Knights sledge hockey team 4-2 at the Brockville Memorial Civic Centre. The game was physically demanding and fast paced for those participating. This sport is becoming widely popular with teams in Ottawa, Montreal, Kingston and other regions. Canada’s national sledge hockey team will be searching for gold when it participates in the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia next week.

COURTESY SHUTTLE TO OLG SLOTS AT RIDEAU CARLETON 1ST AND 3RD WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH

Sports – More than 100 co-ed hockey players from the Kids Christian Hockey League Mighty Eagles played hockey to wrap-up the season on Saturday, March 1 at the Brockville Memorial Civic Centre. Parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters attended the season’s wrap-up hockey games of children, aged 6 to 13. This league was started many years ago. Co-chairs Randy Hopkins and Paul Armstrong believe that children can develop through hockey, learning that it’s not about scoring goals, but about playing the game, having fun and being respectful of the other players. Throughout the year the league had upwards of 200 children registered. For more information go to their website at www.kidshockey.org. The day of the tournament they raised $5,000 for Making Play Possible.

Footing treacherous but fun was had at Freeze Your Buns Sports - Conditions were tough for the participants in the second of the three race Freeze Your Buns series held on Saturday, Feb. 22, despite milder temperatures. Heavy rainfall the day before combined with cooler overnight temperatures made the footing treacherous and high winds further impeded the racers’ progress making the uphill section on Laurier very challenging. True Canadian spirit prevailed as participants accepted the challenges of winter running and pulled off some very fast times despite the weather. The 1 km event was won for the second time in a row by Alisha Alkerton in a time of 4:13. The first male in was Bennet Armstrong in a time of 5:47. The 5 km event saw a repeat winning performance with Eric Wynands crossing the finish line first in a time of 16:46 and Brittany Alkerton finishing first on the women’s side in a time of 20:59. Competitors finishing all three races in the race series earn a long sleeved race shirt. The last race of the series will be held on Saturday, March 22, starting from the Memorial Center with the 1 km going out at 10 a.m. and the 5 km going out at 10:15. Awards for the series are donated from Tait’s Bakery and from Burnbrae Farms with all

proceeds going to support the local food bank. Race results: 1 km event: Alyshia Alkerton 4:13, Paige Reimann 5:09, Tiana McMullen 5:44, Shin Bourne 5:46, Bennet Armstrong 5:47, Mathew Shaver 6:13, Asia Bourne 6:14. 5 km event: Female: Under 15: Brittany Alkerton 20:59, Madelynn Meek 22:55 15-19: Emily Allard 24:18, Brittany Brown 24:51, Brooke Bigalow 25:56 20-29 Chelsea Good 26:27 30-39 Angela Roles 22:58, Sheri McMullen 23:28 40-49 Barb Kilgour 23:26, Laurie Wheeler 23:29, Jo-Ann Evoy 26:06, Seunghyang Shin 26:48, Sandy Noonan 29:13 50-59 Cheryl Scott 26:54, Catherine Tomlinson 28;24, Ruby McCabe Locke 28:42 60-69
