RELAY FOR LIFE

Events - What do magic hats, fire breathing dragons, balloon creations, live music and a whole lot of family fun in the sun have in common? They’re all part of the sixth annual Chalk the Walk in Gananoque, the first great outdoor event of the season. The ever popular festival is returning to Gananoque on May 17, and organizers are anticipating that more amazing art will be hitting the pavement in Town Park. “All of the chalk artists we’ve come to know and love will be there,� said Jan Gravelle of the festival committee. “It’s the perfect way to kick off the summer season.� Included in this year’s line-up of artists and entertainment are 3-D chalk specialist Guy Wales, David Day, and a new guest artist this year Chalk Guy Dave Johnston. As well there’s children’s book creator and illustrator Wallace Edwards, who has delighted every age with his whimsical drawings in the fashion of those in his award-winning books. In addition, participants can enjoy the Crayola Air Castle, BBQ by the Gananoque Boys and Girls Club, face painting by Dreams in Motion, live music by Spare Change and Sheila Rosalie, and the great balloon twistings of Dr. Kaboom. For added fun, meet Joe Campbell “The Bee Man�, who will have some of his amazing hive and nest discoveries on display. “It’s a lot of fun,� said Wales

when asked about his work at the festivals. “I use the same techniques they use for putting the lettering on the highways, and a lot of the same tools. When you’re done, the perspective is amazing. I love the questions people ask, and the way they react when they see the finished drawing come to life in front of them.� Local artist Day enjoys the ephemeral quality of sidewalk chalk art. “You have to get out and enjoy it because Mother Nature will soon wash it away,� he said. “Then you create again.� He is perhaps best known for his sketch trading cards of characters like Cryptozoic, Black Terror, Vampirella and Miss Masque, and for numerous murals. Children’s author and artist Edwards is from Yarker. He graduated from the Ontario College for Art and Design in 1980 and spent the next 20 years as a commercial artist. The Metro Toronto Zoo commissioned his work for signage and animal identification plaques. Numerous pieces of his work may be seen in public and private galleries across Canada. The event will be held in Town Park in Gananoque on Saturday, May 17 (with a rain date of May 24) from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Registration is $2 and opens at 10 a.m. Free sidewalk chalk is provided. An advance registration form may be found at www.chalkthewalk.ca

Food Bank receives generous donations during annual dinner event News - A fundraising dinner by Prescott’s Food For All Food Bank fed a huge crowd of people last weekend, but it will ultimately feed many more in the coming year. A sellout crowd of nearly 250 people sat down for the food bank’s 12th annual Roast Beef Dinner at St. Mark’s Parish Center in Prescott last Saturday and raised money to help feed the needy throughout South Grenville. “We really appreciate the support of the community,” said Bonnie Pidgeon, executive director of Food For All Food Bank, which operates out of Prescott, but has outreach offices in Cardinal and Spencerville. “The community is as passionate as we are.” It took dozens of volunteers and generous donations from local businesses to make the event a success. The Knights of Columbus joined with

the Independent Order of Oddfellows to cook the delectable meal, and the 661 Air Cadet Squadron served the dinner. St. Mark’s Catholic Church donated the use of the parish hall. “This whole event was run by volunteers,” said Pidgeon, who is eager to pass on any praise directed her way to those without whom she could not keep the food bank’s doors open. “There are so many people who deserve that praise,” she said. “Everybody puts in such a great effort.” After dinner, Pidgeon accepted several big donations that will, without doubt, help the food bank feed the hungry throughout South Grenville in the months to come. Heather Lawless, of the Grenville Community Futures Development Corporation, joined with MPP Steve Clark, who was standing in for MP Gord Brown, to donate a cheque for $7,500 to help the food bank expand its capacity R0012683000_0508

OLG Modernization Plan “Overly optimistic,� Auditor General says existing agreements. Initially, there was no plan to provide any transition and support funding for the industry. After an outcry from the horse-racing industry and affected communities, the government introduced new transition and support funding. The Modernization Plan’s projections for jobs related to the gaming industry were overstated and highly dependent on a new GTA casino; there will likely be a net loss of gaming jobs in the province instead of the projected gains. In addition, the initial projection that the private sector would spend $3.2 billion in capital investment has been reduced to only about $940 million, most of which would be realized from the sale of OLG’s existing gaming assets. The report also noted that OLG’s procurement processes so far have been “fair, open and transparent� and that OLG has taken many steps to prevent and mitigate problem gambling.

2014, OLG lowered its original projection of an additional $4.6 billion in gaming profits between 2013 and 2018 by 48 per cent, or about $2.2 billion. Lysyk estimates the reduction could be “as much as $2.8 billion,� or about 60 per cent less than forecast. The Modernization Plan depended on and assumed agreement from municipalities for construction of casinos within their borders. However, large Ontario municipalities identified as potential sites for the new casinos, such as Toronto and Ottawa, rejected OLG’s proposals, which significantly lowered net profit projections. The government was fully aware that cancellation of the Slots At Racetracks Program, which provided $347 million to racetrack operators and horse owners, horse breeders and others involved in horse racing in 2012, would have a significant impact on Ontario’s horseracing industry. Nonetheless, the program was cancelled with one year’s notice, as allowed by

News - A 2012 plan to modernize the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and generate higher profits for the province was “overly ambitious� and “overly optimistic,� Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk said in a special report released recently. The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s Modernization Plan Special Report also found that the “abrupt cancellation� of a program that gave the horse-racing industry a share of slot-machine revenues at racetracks has had a significant impact on the industry. “OLG developed its Modernization Plan without sufficiently consulting such stakeholders as municipalities and the horse-racing industry,� Lysyk said. “The profit estimates should have been more realistic, and the abrupt impact on the horse-racing industry could have been mitigated had more people been consulted beforehand.� Lysyk also noted that the Modernization Plan anticipated that OLG could complete significant downsizing, restructuring and privatization within 18 months, a timeline she described as “overly ambitious.� The Legislative Assembly’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts passed a seven-part motion asking the Auditor General to look at various aspects of the Modernization Plan, including the cancelling of the Slots At Racetracks Program. The Modernization Plan was approved by Cabinet and made public in 2012. The Modernization Plan, Lysyk found, presented an “ambitious best-case scenario,� including a significant number of changes designed to raise OLG profits by a total of $4.6 billion between 2013 and 2018. Delays, policy changes and the lack of several municipal approvals resulted in OLG having to dramatically reduce its profit projections. For example: As of March 31,

Arthur Child Museum has much to offer for 2014 season By JAN MURRAY

News - The Arthur Child Museum in Gananoque held their preview launch event for the 2014 season, May 2. This also happens to be their 20th year in business in their current location. “This evening is about partnerships and gratitude,� executive director Linda Mainse explained. “Everything we are launching this evening is a result of partnership. With our members, our patrons, our partners, and for all of them and for all of you and the abundance of generosity that has facilitated these exhibits and the new Wheelhouse, we are deeply grateful.� Mainse welcomed and thanked the partners. MP Gord Brown was very excited to be able to attend and congratulate the museum for all the hard work that they do. “We have some wonderful displays. Upstairs there is the new Wheelhouse

display, which I was delighted to see that the federal government helped to fund through the 1000 Islands Community Development Corporation.� Brown also sent greetings from MPP Steve Clark who was unable to attend. The new Wheelhouse exhibit, located on the third floor of the museum offers patrons a chance to experience the 1000 Islands all from within the tower in which it is situated. Patrons may enjoy a fully interactive experience; are asked to answer a couple fun knowledge testing questions and then they are virtually on their way, traveling the 1000 Islands via their choice of Tall Ship, Speed Boat or a classic Wooden Launch. Tom Russell, executive director for the 1000 Islands Community Development Corporation congratulated Mainse and her team for the work they have done. “Linda put together a marvelous appli-

Lorne Prosser photography From May 3 through until Oct. 31 the museum offers ‘Through the Lens: The Photography of Lorne Prosser.’ It offers an opportunity to revisit Gananoque through the lens of photographer Lorne Prosser as well as view the artwork of his mentor, Peter McKenzie. On display is Prosser’s first camera, a collection of cameras from over the years and other photography memorabilia. Prosser was a well-known photographer and artist in the early 1900s. His photography business was located on the second floor of the Merchant’s Bank building at the southeast corner of King and Stone Streets. He specialized in portrait, aerial photography and in old print restoration. During his lifetime he won five international and one Canadian award for his work. A plaque briefly outlining his life and accomplishments states “he died in April of 1990 leaving behind a wonderful visual record of the history of the town and residents of Gananoque and area.� Also on the first floor of the museum is a First World War exhibit. Mainse introduced Bill Beswetherick to those in attendance during her opening remarks. “Bill Beswetherick is an author and member of the Royal Canadian Legion in town. He, together with his compatriots has helped to create the WW1 exhibit which is located in the back room.� This exhibit commemorates those who served in WW1 from Gananoque.

After a brief introduction she asked Beswetherick to come forward and presented him with a gift. “This is Col. Britton’s jacket.� It was donated for the legion by Col. Britton’s great nephew. Beswetherick reminded everyone that he would be at the museum again on Saturday (May 3, please see full story inside this issue) to launch his new book, Voices from the Past: Canadian Letters from the First World War. “The book is personal stories of the war,� Beswetherick explained. “Col. Britton left Gananoque on the 28th of August 1914 and led 130 men from the armouries to the train station. They went off to the front and 58 were killed. A big contribution in a town of 4,000 people.� The WW1 exhibit is on display from May 3 through until Sept. 5. The museum describes the event as “A commemoration of the sacrifices of the men and women of Gananoque.� Mainse brought attention to Bill Morrison, who was unable to attend the event. “Bill Morrison is the crafter of the model ships on the first floor.� Morrison is 94 and has moved to the Cobourg area to be close to his family. “Before moving,� Mainse continued, “He donated his last and I think most magnificent, and he calls his most challenging ship to date. It is located on the second floor, the HMS St. Lawrence which was credited with ending the War of 1812.� The Prosser, McKenzie and WW1 exhibit were dependent upon loans from a wide variety of individuals in order to bring them to life. Mainse thanked the many contributors who made the exhibit possible. “It’s been an amazing collaboration,� Mainse stated. “Of pieces that have come in from the community.�

Events - Get your tickets now for the upcoming Crime Stoppers Spring Fling, May 17. With a Retro 80s theme, this fundraiser for the Kingston/1000 Islands Crime Stoppers should be a blast. Taking place at the Brockville Memorial Centre that evening from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. music will be provided by DJ Dan Martel. There will be a cash bar, 50/50, live and silent auction as well as prize for best costume. A light lunch will be served at midnight. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased by calling 613-340-0948. All proceeds are going to, as mentioned above, the Crime Stoppers Kingston/1000 Islands. Chair for the agency’s board of directors, Julie Oliveira explained in a prior interview with the St. Lawrence News EMC, funds are needed on an ongoing basis for costs such as operating the tip line, paying out tips and more. Covering a massive area, from Prescott to Westport, Sharbot Lake and of course Kingston, donations are always needed to ensure the program can run without interruption. According to a letter sent out soliciting support for a previous fundraiser, “the program is based on the simple premise that for every crime, someone other than the criminal has information that would solve it.” In Canada, Crime Stoppers has helped solve more than 1.1 million cases since 1982, and recovered close to $40 million in property and drugs with 600,000 arrests made. Locally, the organization is operated by a board of directors, from the various communities represented. “Crime Stoppers is a not-for-profit community-based charitable program involving the cooperation of the community, the media, and the police agencies in the fight against crime. You only have to listen to the news reports over the recent months to know that Kingston/1000 Islands is not immune to murder, major crime, sexual assault, elder abuse, domestic violence, child pornography, robbery and the list goes on and on unfortunately. Crime Stoppers encourages members of our community to step forward with information concerning these crimes and has become an invaluable investigative tool to our provincial investigative teams,” reads the Kingston/1000 Islands Crime Stoppers website, in the board chair’s message. Crime Stoppers does pay out cash rewards for information that leads to an arrest, and/or seizure of drugs or property. No one is asked to identify themselves or to testify in court. Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display or call trace. Tips may be called in to 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), via the web (www.ttttips.com) or through SMS by sending your message to CRIMES and have TIP307 at the beginning of the body of the message. All information is encrypted to protect the identity of tipsters. Once the anonymous information is received, it is then passed along to investigators at the appropriate police agency. Crime Stoppers anonymity has never been broken. For more information about the Kingston/1000 Islands Crime Stoppers please visit their website at www.callcrimestoppers.ca

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Silver Ribbon campaign on during Mental Health Awareness Week DEAR EDITOR:

In partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Leeds Grenville, the Silver Ribbon Campaign is launching its third annual event. This campaign was started in memory of Matt Roke, who died suddenly in May, 2012 as a direct result of mental illness. The goal of the campaign is to promote mental health awareness in our community. Each year we make silver ribbons available to schools and other organizations upon request. A silver ribbon is a visible symbol of support for many who suffer in silence. The ribbons are attached to a card with the phone numbers of local organizations that are available to help persons with mental health issues. We will be distributing these ribbons with information cards free-

of-charge throughout Leeds and Grenville especially during the Mental Health Awareness Week of May 5-11. One in five Canadians will experience a mental health challenge in their lifetime. We are encouraging everyone to wear a silver ribbon in support of those who suffer in silence. Let’s break the silence and talk about it. There’s hope, there’s help. We ask that you consider supporting our cause by helping us get the word out. For more information see our website: www.thesilverribboncampaign.ca Sincerely, Sylvia Harmsma, Cathy De Kroon, Jody Roke, The Silver Ribbon Campaign

Editorial – The Casino Thousand Islands has been for over a decade a resounding success, and a welcome addition for the town of Gananoque and Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands. The communities have made it abundantly crystal clear through not one, but two Save Our Casino rallies – they want it to stay. The municipalities want it. They have benefited from it, they have embraced it, and they have been given new opportunities as a result of it being on their doorstep. The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s modernization plans open up the possibility that the casino might be relocated – to Kingston. A special report from Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk called the plan “overly ambitious” and “overly optimistic.” The Auditor General did also note, procurement processes have been “fair, open and transparent.” MPP for Leeds-Grenville Steve Clark, who has been working to ensure the casino stays in Gananoque from the start, noted in a press release “Ontario’s Liberal government stacked the deck against the future of the Thousand Islands Casino by endorsing a plan to move it to downtown Kingston….they had already rigged the game to decide the outcome.” The Auditor General’s report, Clark points out, showed “OLG proposed to “Replace Thousand Islands casino (Leeds and Thousand Islands) with casino in downtown Kingston. The timeline indicated in the proposal was Winter 2015.” Why would the OLG want to take its second highest grossing casino in the province, one without a racetrack, and move it elsewhere? Why, when the research was done over a decade ago and pointed to the conclusion that Gananoque was the place to locate? Especially since nothing has changed, in fact the casino was built with room for expansion and has been such a huge success financially. Add to that the benefit it has been to so many people. Beyond the dollar value – the many lives that have been touched by the casino, either through employment, as a social venue, or the programs and services provided as a result of casino funding to the host municipalities. Then there are the thousands of visitors to the casino, many of whom choose to stay in the area for an extended visit to take in what else is offered in the communities. The community’s message to leave the casino where it is, is one this paper echoes, particularly in light of this latest news coming forward with regard to the modernization plan. Leave alone what is working, and working well.

Spring cleaning brought new life into Mary’s childhood home Lifestyle - The signs were everywhere. Our old log house had finally taken on the look of spring, leading into summer. Although any visitor coming into the house would not be aware of the difference, it was very obvious to us who lived there. Outside, the very last smidgen of snow had long since gone. The foot path from the summer kitchen to the barn was now dry, and the mud that followed the melting snow had hardened like it did every spring. Inside, everywhere, I could see the changes that had taken us from one season to the next. Mother had pulled out the strips of rags and old wool socks that had been crammed around every window downstairs to keep out the winter drafts. Of course, these weren’t thrown away. No, they were washed, hung out on the fence to dry, and then rolled in newspapers and tucked under an upstairs bed at the ready for the next winter. And the windows, grimy from the long

months when it was impossible to clean them, were shining from the bath they took of water and vinegar. The windows were ready for the warm weather. When the cold fall weather struck months before, braided mats had been scattered all through the house...one hefty one rolled and kept tight against the back door to keep out the drafts...many others put here and there, in the hope they would help keep our feet warm from the icy cold floors that were impossible to heat up no matter how raging was the Findlay Oval. And joy, oh joy, the navy blue fleece lined

bloomers had one last washing on laundry day, and they too would be tucked away. Of course, they were no longer the deep navy of a few months ago when they were fresh out of the parcel ordered from Eaton’s catalogue...now they had faded to a pale purple, attesting to the dozens of times they had been washed over the winter. The bloomers would join the suits of long underwear and undershirts helping to keep us warm on long walks to school, and they would be packed in the humpbacked trunk that sat under the west window in the bedroom I shared with my sister Audrey. Of course Father insisted on wearing his undershirt, long sleeves and all, under his work shirt long into the summer. He gave up his combinations only when Mother snatched them off the chair by his bed when he was sleeping, and when the heat of the summer had the rest of us panting.

There were no clothes closets in that old log house, and no storage cupboards, and no attic to store things away one season to the next, and I was always amazed how Mother found space to tuck things away, sight unseen. Gradually winter outerwear would be hung on the clothes line, or thrown over the wire fence in the back yard to get a good airing...always a chore for a warm sunny day. Then each piece examined by Mother, buttons replaced, seams sewn and spots removed, would be packed into a big cardboard box scrounged from Briscoe’s General Store. Between each piece of clothing, Mother would tuck in a few mothballs. When the box was put in the boys’ bedroom, the whole upstairs smelled of the mothballs. The Findlay Oval would yet be moved out into the summer kitchen. Father thought that idea was just about the craziest notion he ever heard in his life. And as soon as Mother got the itch to “turn the

But Mother insisted the big lumbering Oval be moved to the summer kitchen...rolled out by every hand in the house on two logs, the stove pipes taken down, repainted and a smaller portion of pipe poked through a hole in the summer kitchen wall. But the biggest change to me, and the one I looked forward to most, was when the parlour would be open for the summer. All winter the door which separated it from the kitchen was closed tightly, a thick braided rug jammed along the bottom of the door to keep out the cold air.

News - Students from the EarlyAct program at Vanier Public School recently joined with their Rotary patrons to put smiles on some very sad faces. EarlyAct is a program sponsored by the Rotary Club that helps introduce youngsters to the rewards of giving back to the community and to the principle of service above self, and at Vanier, 20 children have taken those values to heart. Last week, they donated a cheque to representatives of Operation Smile Canada, who came all the way from Toronto to attend the group’s annual general meeting in the gym at the school. Operation Smile Canada is a medical charity that provides facial reconstructive surgery to children in poor countries who are suffering from cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. The AGM was attended by members of the 1000 Islands Rotary Club, Rotary Club of Brockville, Prescott Rotary Club and students from the EarlyAct program at Prescott’s Wellington Public School. The three Rotary clubs in Brockville and Prescott donated $2,400 to Operation Smile, while the youngsters in the Vanier EarlyAct club handed over a cheque for $240, which they raised through a dance, by running a canteen and holding a contest to guess the number of candies in a jar. “I’m just in awe of the students,” said Patricia Vidov, director of

The Rotary clubs of Brockville and Prescott, along with the EarlyAct club at Vanier Public School in Brockville, presented a couple of donations last week to Patricia Vidov (second from left) and Dorothy Tam (far right) of Operation Smile Canada. Presenting the cheques are (from left) Marilyn Power, president-elect of the Rotary Club of Brockville; Rene Melchers, past president of the 1000 Islands Rotary Club and past district governor; and Michelle Peters, a teacher at Vanier and a Rotarian.

Each operation costs about $240, so the money raised by the Vanier EarlyAct club will pay for one child to undergo the surgery, while the donation by the three Rotary Clubs will fund 10 such operations. “The students found this charity themselves,” says Michelle Peters, a teacher at Vanier and leader of the EarlyAct club. Two years ago, the students were asked to research and identify several possible charities they thought worthy of support. The school then took a vote, and Operation Smile came out on top. Since then, the kids have raised enough money to provide several third-world children with life-changing surgeries, and their efforts did not go unnoticed by the representatives from Toronto. “This really energizes us,” said Dorothy Tam, director of major and planned gifts for Operation Smile Canada. “It gives us that one more reason to do what we do.”

Big hearts are making play possible in Brockville By JAN MURRAY

News - A new fundraiser for Making Play Possible attracted some very generous members of the community last week as ‘Pints for Play’ got under way at the Keystorm Pub in Brockville. In partnership with Scotiabank, Making Play Possible (MPP) launched an exciting evening with live entertainment by River City Junction, a silent auction, and a fun and very moving reverse auction. For admission, patrons were granted admission to the event, live entertainment, one pint and a promise for a very fun and exhilarating evening. Dan Thompson and the Keystorm donated the venue and food, River City Junction also donated their time and talent, meaning that 100 per cent of ticket sales would go entirely to Making Play Possible. Scotiabank matched ticket sales, essentially granting MPP 200 per cent of the evening’s revenue. The evening truly brought out the best in this very generous community. Heartwarming speeches revealed some especially big hearts and just a couple secrets. There were tales of days gone by; hopes and dreams, some of which inspired individuals to get involved and to give to this great cause. “Thanks to Dan and to staff; they have been so accommodating and to River City Junction for donating their time,” said Krista Gill, co-chair of MPP, elated with the generosity. Catherine Deplaedt, co-chair of making play possible added, “When we asked River City Junction if they could help out, they didn’t even hesitate. It was just, sure, no problem, we’ll donate our time.” This was just the beginning of the raw

Make Play Possible committee, Elizabeth Green, Sue Davies, Nicola Williams, Shelley McCaffrey, Brent Scott, Ilona Thomas, Catherine Deplaedt, Mary Hansen and Krista Gill were ecstatic with the community response at last week’s fundraiser, Pints for Play at the Keystorm Pub in Brockville. emotion that was seen throughout the evening. Speeches were kept short but packed with a punch. The need for community involvement was evident; the desire from those in the room to help was unmistakable. “In this program I’ve had the opportunity to deal with children on a very open level. Their desire to not let people down who have helped them out along the way is truly immeasurable,” Coach Jacob Swarbrick spoke of his experiences since coming to the area 12 years ago. As the speeches wrapped up, new committee member Brent Scott took the microphone and announced they would be doing what was referred to as a reverse auction. Though he joked about his abil-

ity as an auctioneer, the overwhelming amount of generosity that followed was truly amazing. As Scott began the bidding at $300, hands flew up instantaneously. Within four minutes 13 people had each offered this donation. The offers were coming in so quickly, Gill was scrambling to write each of the names down. Scott switched to $200 donations and another three hands flew up in the air. The bidding then dropped to $100 and yet another five hands were raised, and then another two for a $70 donation. If not astonished enough, the committee was then taken aback when a couple, who wished to remain anonymous approached them and donated another

$1,200 to the program. Supporters opened both their hearts and their wallets repeatedly throughout the evening donating a whopping $21,000 in just a few short hours. Sponsors for the evening were Scotiabank, the Keystorm Pub, River City Junction, Axens IFP Group Technologies, Brent Scott, the Co-Operators, Mike Menard, Coldwell Banker, Steve and Anne McMurray, Don Farnsworth, the Mortgage Source/Dominion Lending Centres, Boardwalk Dental and Gordon and Sophie Cushing. Making Play Possible also has the continuing support of Canadian Tire Jumpstart, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, United Counties of Leeds & Gren-

ville and Every Kid in Our Communities Coalition. Research shows that participation in recreation increases a child’s chance at success throughout life. Since 2004, Making Play Possible has funded over 5,000 local children and youth, (572 last year alone) providing them with the opportunity to get involved in sports and the arts that would otherwise not be possible. Each year MPP disperses between $60,000 – $100,000 which covers registration fees, transportation costs and equipment costs in order to make play possible for more than 360 Leeds-Grenville children and youth. Making Play Possible is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and welcome anyone interested in helping to create connections and raise funds so that more children will be able to participate in recreation. The committee released a statement seeking volunteers stating, “We are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping kids succeed, who are passionate about sports, the arts, or other organized recreation. We need volunteers who are interested in helping promote Making play Possible and advocating for our cause; connecting us to resources in the community; connecting us to recreational providers who want to work with us; developing fundraising opportunities and providing free or subsidized access to activities for children and youth to participate in recreation in Leeds-Grenville.” If you think you might be interested in donating please visit their website www. canadahelps.org

A trip into the past through pages of new local book By JAN MURRAY

News – Voices from the Past: Canadian Letters from the First World War was launched during a special event held May 3 at the Arthur Child Heritage Museum. The presentation and book signing by Bill Beswetherick and his co-author Geraldine Chase focused on the book which provides a Gananoque background into the Great War. Inside are samples of many letters, written by soldiers living on the front lines, enduring the unthinkable. “Never ever use word or word perfect to proof read a book,” he joked as he began. He motioned to his co-author Chase sitting in the second row, who nodded in agreement. He offered many thanks including to the grants committee and Gananoque Mayor Erika Demchuk for providing the funds to produce the book. Thanks to the funds they are able to keep the cost down and to provide copies for local schools and libraries. Should the book produce any profit, which is of course their goal, they will erect a plaque on the town Armouries which was built in 1912. That building was used for training soldiers during the two great wars and is now the 1000 Islands Playhouse Theatre. He felt it quite appropriate that the book launch was held on this day, as the museum itself was just beginning a major display downstairs on the First World War as well as an exhibit on photographer Lorne Prosser. “In 2005 we produced the book Gananoque Remembers,” Beswetherick explained. “It contains the biographies of 83 men on the Gananoque Cenotaph.” The book was reproduced in 2013 to add

Bill Beswetherick and his co-author Geraldine Chase were very happy to present their book, Voices from the Past: Canadian Letters from the First World War when it was launched during a special event held May 3 at the Arthur Child Heritage Museum. the biography of Corp. Randy Payne who was killed in action in Afghanistan on April 22, 2006. “When we did the book Gananoque Remembers we were only able to include a few letters and they were only from the men that died,” he said. “We had access to hundreds of letters.” It was then that they began to think about producing a second book. The book would be based on the First World War, with the many letters they had, produced as a kind of memorial. The book contains over 100 letters written by men from the Gananoque area and another 100-125 from those across Canada. “The book isn’t a history of the First

World War. It’s a story about men and women, mainly from the Gananoque area and what to them was, at the time, the greatest event in history, the First World War,” Beswetherick pointed out. Throughout his presentation, he showed a variety of letters, crafted by local soldiers. The letters told of the cold hard truth of the war, the conditions they were living in, the brutal truth of the war. Many were heart wrenching accounts of life on the front line, yet the letters were not crafted in such a way to present a tone of bellyaching but rather a point of view, quite matter of fact. One such letter was written by a young soldier who knew his life was ending and had written a letter home to his mother to say good-bye and to tell her that all that he had done was “worth it” and he would see her in Heaven. At the beginning of the war, the population of Canada was eight million. Of those, 650,000 enlisted, and of those, 66,000 were killed. That is 20,000 more casualties than in the much longer Second World War. The average age of someone who enlisted was 26. He explained that the law stated you must be over 18 and under 45 to enlist. However, with few telephones and almost no birth certificates it was virtually impossible to know if enlistees were telling the truth. If you were denied enlistment, men and women simply went across the road and applied at another office. The first example he spoke of was an older man who claimed he was born in 1867, making him 49 years of age when he enlisted. Although this would make him just a couple years too old, he was

accepted none the less. In reality the gentleman was born in 1844, making him 72 when he enlisted. It was an entire year later when the deception was caught and he was tossed out of the army, but not before he met the King, who apparently had a desire to meet the oldest man enlisted. On the other extreme, a young man by the name of William Bailey claimed he was born in 1898 which made him 16 years old. Although two years too young, he too was accepted. Unfortunately, Bailey was not entirely honest either. In actuality he was born in 1900 making him only 14 years of age when he enlisted, and only 15 when he was killed just one year later. “The world was completely different back then,” Beswetherick explained. “There were almost no automobiles, almost no mode of electricity or telephone. Nobody had a radio. Aircraft were very rare. There was no income tax and women were not allowed to vote.” In 1914 Gananoque had a population of just under 4,000 people. Of those, 550 men and women enlisted. At least nine were nurses. Fifty-eight local men lost their lives including three sets of brothers. If you didn’t join the artillery, then you were probably enlisted in the infantry according to his findings. He showed pictures of soldiers in the trenches and explained that men slept on the ground, sleeping under waterproof sheets. “That’s how you lived for two weeks at a time. There were no tents.” It was a different time, a different life. A time that many in today’s world cannot relate to. The letters and stories in the book help to bring the war to life for those

who read it. Captivating and yet heartbreaking, the letters speak to you and touch your soul. Canadian forces developed into storm troopers. “Canadians were key factors in stopping the first gas attack by the Germans. Canadians were also victorious in 1917 in Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele.” In the last 100 days of war Canada suffered. There were 45,000 killed and wounded. This equates to 120 men killed every day for 100 days. “When you think we’ve lost 160 men in Afghanistan in eight years, you see this was a heavy hit.” It was not an easy victory. “The war began when Germany invaded Belgium. Germans began burning towns and in two weeks murdered 6,000 men women and children. Veteran affairs stated (because people question why the British and Canadians were involved in the war), the Germans actually publicized what they did, the executions,” he said, “They were actually proud of it.” He then showed excerpts from the book on the screen.“The idea was to get the population to give in immediately.” Many men volunteered to go to war to stop Germany from dominating Europe. Germany was not just out to defeat Britain, they wanted to dominate. As Beswetherick continued through the book, each story would include letters from soldiers bringing a more solid sense of realism to it. It was not just a story written by a historian, instead it was real life accounts of what had happened and how each day was affecting the men and women who had gone there, the majority of whom were volunteers.

Seeley’s Bay Red Canoefest on May 17 Events - No, you don’t have to bring a red canoe... The Seeley’s Bay community is now recognized by thousands as the place with the red canoes out on Highway 15.

Federal government launches Mental Health Action Plan to treat complex mental illnesses among federal offenders Hospital in Ottawa. “This is good news as two of those treatment beds will be coming to the Royal Ottawa’s facility here in Brockville,” says Brown. “This is an excellent start and I congratulate Senator Bob Runciman on his persistence over the years, first as our MPP and now as our Senator. I have been pleased to work with him on this over the past decade along with MPP Steve Clark, the entire Brockville community, the United Counties of Leeds-Grenville and the Brockville Mental Health Centre. This shows what a concerted effort can do.” As a key component of the intervention pillar, R0012641639

News – Leeds-Grenville Member of Parliament Gord Brown backs the government’s launch of a comprehensive Mental Health Action Plan for federal offenders that is addressing their serious mental health needs. The Action Plan for federal offenders, notes a press release from his office, contains five pillars which are: timely assessment, effective management, sound intervention, ongoing training, and robust governance and oversight. Brown joined Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness as he made the announcement last week at the Royal Ottawa

Blaney announced that the federal government’s agreement in principle with the Royal Ottawa Health Care Group for a pilot project that would expand the government’s capacity to meet the needs of offenders with the most complex mental health needs. As part of the pilot project, notes the release, the Royal’s Brockville Mental Health Centre would provide bed space to treat women offenders with serious mental health needs. This provincial mental health centre, along with L’Institut Philippe Pinel in Montreal, Quebec and the East Coast Forensic Hospital in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia are part of a concerted effort by the federal government to enhance the Correctional Service of Canada’s capacity to effectively and appropriately treat offenders with serious mental health needs through agreements with provincial healthcare systems. “We know that a significant number of offenders, especially women offenders, suffer from some form of mental illness and that those who receive treatment are not only healthier but they are also less likely to reoffend. We look forward to building our partnership with the Correctional Service of Canada that will bring specialized mental health treatment to severely ill women offenders improv-

ing the safety of these women and giving them a chance at a better life upon release,” says George Weber, president and CEO of The Royal Ottawa Hospital. The federal government recognizes the growing impact of mental health needs on the federal offender population. This is just one aspect of the ongoing response to the recommendations of the jury from the Coroner’s Inquest into the tragic death of Ashley Smith. Recent statistics show that at admission, 13 per cent of male offenders and 29 per cent of women offenders in federal custody self-identified as having mental health needs. CSC’s overall Mental Health Strategy is based on research and evidence-based interventions. CSC’s approach to preventing suicide and selfinjury contributes to the reduction and prevention of these behaviours. Research indicates that, among women offenders with a history of self-injury, up to 93 per cent of these offenders had self-injured prior to admission to a CSC institution. CSC remains vigilant, as preserving life is an ongoing duty and staff must stay attentive 24/7 to the safety and security of offenders and staff.

First ever Ride for Aaron departs July 3 By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

News - This year’s first ever Ride for Aaron has been gathering steam in the community as organizers prepare for its July 3 departure. Beginning in a place of meaning and ending in an equally significant locale, the ride is in honour of Aaron Stevenson, a Brockville youth who was killed last year in a hit and run as he was longboarding home one evening in September. At noon on July 3, participants will depart from the tree which was planted in Stevenson’s memory in front of Brockville Collegiate Institute. Riders will be making the journey on their longboards with an RV for accompaniment to St. Catharines, where they will arrive July 17. The goal is to turn this into an annual venture. Throughout the ride, safety will be promoted. As well, the goal is to raise $4,000, with approximately $1,250 raised as of April 24. Funds will go towards a bursary, with the hope of raising enough to award three $1,000 bursaries to graduating Brockville high

school students – one from each school, each year. The bursary is in Stevenson’s honour and is for students pursuing the arts in post secondary education. “I knew Aaron personally. I am close with his family,” Mathias Cameron, of Origin Longboards, explained. Having moved to Brockville when he was four, he completed all of his schooling here. Stevenson’s father had recorded music in Cameron’s father’s recording studio. Cameron is also friends with Stevenson’s brother Austin. “What makes me want to do this is to be able to help students struggling to pay for tuition follow their dreams,” he noted. “And hopefully help them get where they would like to be.” The ride will visit Kingston, Trenton, Cobourg, Pickering, Toronto, Hamilton and end up in St. Catharines. On July 10 the ride will stop in Toronto at a location known as “the poop chute” for a skateboard competition. The competition is sponsored by skateboard shops and associated companies. Cameron explained the competition is a way of saying thank you to the riders,

those who have helped and provided support. “Everybody can come and hang out with us and have a fun day of skating. Our skate sponsors have given us prizes to give out and we will also be having an all ages party, 16 plus, on the 11th in Toronto.” Cameron does note, “Anybody that can make it to the competition can compete, but it is at their own risk as it is a steep hill but there is no traffic.” He explained the road won’t be shut down as events take place there frequently. Riders must have a helmet to compete and safety gear is encouraged at not just this competition, but all the time when skating. The ride will, as mentioned, wrap up in St. Catharines. A place that holds meaning for Cameron. “When Aaron passed away I was in a pretty dark place and it just made me break,” he remembered. “I decided to just leave and take some time to myself.” His plan was to ride to St. Catharines where he had some friends. It was a place he felt he could “Escape from everything,” and have time to think. When those surrounding him heard

of his plans, they encouraged him, rather than to leave, to take that energy and thought and use it for something good. So, this ride is what Cameron did with those negative emotions - he has turned them into something positive which will have positive ripple effects in the years to come. Currently there are about 10 people who will be riding in the RV, with his mother Lynda Walsh as the driver. The main riders, he said, will be from his skate company, Origin’s team, including himself, Austin Smith, Nick Robertson, Keith Wells and others. The ride is open to participants, but spots are not guaranteed. For further information about the Ride for Aaron, please visit the Facebook page - www.facebook.com/rideforaaron. To donate there is a link under description which will lead to a website called Go Fund where those interested can make that donation. Cameron intends on attending Everest College in Toronto soon for business administration with the intention of furthering his working knowledge to grow his company.

How to guarantee your garden starts off on the right foot As winter slowly winds down, many gardeners cannot wait to soak up the springtime sun and get their hands dirty in the garden. Such excitement is not just good for gardeners, but can benefit the garden in the months to come as well. Late winter or early spring is a great time to get a head start on the gardening season. Even if gardening season is still around the corner, completing the following projects can ensure your garden gets off on the right foot. Clear debris One of the best things you can do for your garden as winter winds down is to clear it of debris. Winter can be especially harsh on a landscape, and gardens left to the elements are often filled with debris once spring arrives. Dead leaves, fallen branches, rocks that surfaced during the winter frost, and even garbage that might have

blown about in winter winds can all pile up in a garden over a typical winter. Clearing such debris likely won’t take long, but it’s a great first step toward restoring the garden before the time comes to plant and grow the garden once again. Examine the soil Soil plays a significant role in whether a garden thrives or struggles. Examining the soil before the season starts can help gardeners address any issues before they plant. Ignoring the soil until a problem arises can turn the upcoming gardening season into a lost opportunity, so test the soil to determine if it has any nutrient or mineral deficiencies. This may require the help of a professional, but if a problem arises, you might be able to adjust the acidity or alkalinity of the soil and still enjoy a successful gardening season. Another way to examine the

soil is less complex but can shed light on when would be a good time to get back to work. Reach into the soil and dig out a handful. If the soil quickly crumbles, you can start preparing for gardening seasoning. But if the soil is still clumped together, it needs more time to dry out before you can begin your prep work. Initiate edging Edging is another task gardeners can begin as they get ready for the season. Edge plant and flower beds, but be sure to use a spade with a flat blade or an edger designed to edge flower beds. Such tools will cut deep enough so grass roots that may eventually grow into the flower bed are severed. Depending on how large a garden is, edging can be a timeconsuming task, so getting a head start allows homeowners to spend more time planting and tending to their gardens once the season hits

full swing. Fight weeds Though weeds likely have not survived the winter, that does not mean they won’t return once the weather starts to heat up. But as inevitable as weeds may seem, homeowners can take steps to prevent them from turning beautiful gardens into battlegrounds where plants, flowers and vegetables are pitted against unsightly and potentially harmful weeds. Spring is a good time to apply a pre-emergent weed preventer, which can stop weeds before they grow. Though such solutions are not always foolproof, they can drastically reduce the likelihood of weed growth. Though gardeners might not be able to start planting their gardens in late winter or early spring, they can still get outside and take steps to ensure their gardens thrive once planting season begins.

Many people cultivate gardens both inside and outside of their homes with a focus on adding aesthetic appeal to their property. But a garden that boasts plants that are edible and pleasing to the eye is a possibility as well. Planting an herb garden is a creative way to enjoy the sights, smells and tastes of a wide variety of plants. Using fresh-harvested herbs in culinary endeavors imparts a taste that dried spices cannot match. What’s more, fresh herbs are often easy to cultivate. Herbs are versatile, capable of lending great flavor to foods while also playing different roles in personal health and beauty. Herbs can be grown to perfume homes and bodies. There are herbs that are also purported to help with ailments, from upset stomachs to anxiety. When planting an herb garden, you may want to pay particular attention to the types of flavors and smells you like in your home and cooking. This will help you to narrow down the types of herbs you will plant. Many would-be herb gardeners tend to start small to see what luck they have when cultivating herbs. Fortunately, herbs can grow well in containers indoors, provided the soil is amenable and there is plenty of sunlight. Herbs will grow best in well-prepared soil. Make sure that it is rich in organic matter and drains well. Also, for plants like parsley, be sure to have deep pots or dig deeply in the garden to establish long taproots. Until the weather warms up, you may want to begin herb cultivation indoors and then transfer plants outside during the summer. Basil, for instance, is a tropical plant that does well in warm conditions. Therefore, it will need to be kept away from drafts and get several hours of direct sunshine a day. Place most herb planters in a south-facing window of a home to ensure they get ample sunlight and to allow the soil to dry adequately between waterings. With many herbs, leaf production will diminish on any stems that flower. It is essential to pinch off flowers that form to encourage the herb plant to continue producing leaves, which are the parts of the plant most associated with seasoning and aroma. GT134077

The right watering can make all the difference in a lush lawn Proper watering is essential when trying to restore or maintain a lush green lawn. If watered incorrectly, a lawn can be susceptible to a host of problems, including insect infestation, weak roots and disease. When watering a lawn, especially when temperatures start to soar in the summer, it’s easy to think a lawn needs more water and needs it during those hours of the day when the sun is at its most intense. However, those are two common misconceptions about watering. The following are a handful of tips for homeowners who want to help their lawns endure the summer heat and maintain their lush appeal into the fall. * Water when temperatures are mild. In the summertime, humans typically need water when temperatures are at their most extreme, but that does not mean lawns should be watered when temperatures soar. Water attracts the sun, so watering when temperatures are at their hottest, which is typically around midday and into early afternoon, will likely lead to brown spots indicative of a burned lawn. That’s because the sun will be drawn to the water, bearing down on the lawn and burning the grass as a result. When summer arrives, a lawn is best watered when temperatures are at their most mild. That often translates to early morning or early evening. An added benefit of watering when temperatures are on the mild side is less water will be lost to evaporation during this time, meaning you won’t be wasting water. * Situate sprinklers to conserve water. Homeowners who won’t be hand watering their lawns should make sure their sprinklers are placed properly throughout their property. Situate sprinklers so they aren’t watering driveways, walkways Poorly situated sprinkler heads can deny lawns the water they desperor patios. All of the water should be going to the grass, espe- ately need when the temperatures rise.

cially when drought restrictions are in place and the amount of watering the law allows is limited. It’s also important to make sure water from sprinklers isn’t being blocked from reaching the grass by trees. Homeowners with especially large trees on their property should consider hand watering the grass beneath such trees to ensure these areas receive adequate water. * Lean on mulch. Homeowners tend to fear drought for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that drought can cause a green lawn to turn brown, potentially affecting property value and robbing a landscape of its beauty. But there are ways to help the soil retain moisture when temperatures are especially hot and dry. Mulch around trees, flower beds, gardens and shrubs can help homeowners get the most bang for their watering buck. That’s because mulch retains moisture, even when temperatures are especially hot. This helps foster stronger root growth and healthier landscapes that are less susceptible to disease and insect infestation. * Get to know your lawn. Several variables combine to determine how much water a lawn needs. Understanding these variables helps homeowners understand how much to water their own lawns. Local climate is a variable to consider, as is whether or not a lawn was fertilized (experts typically recommend a lawn be fertilized several times, beginning in the spring and ending in October). Soil type and grass type also help to determine how much water a lawn needs, and homeowners who need to determine the type of soil and grass on their property can consult a local lawn care center or landscaping professional. Proper watering can help a lawn survive the dog days of summer, and it’s up to homeowners to learn the right techniques. GT144056

Brockville Police Service urges residents to dispose of unused prescription meds Events - Saturday, May 10 is your opportunity to quickly and easily dispose of old and unused prescription medications that you may have in your home. A location will be available at the Brockville Police Service for residents to drop off medications that they no longer need. The misuse and abuse of prescription medication has become a public safety issue for communities and police services across the country, who are working together to draw attention to this public safety concern by participating in the Prescription Drug Drop Off Day on Saturday, May 10. Brockville Police Service will accept unwanted or expired medications to keep them away from individuals for whom they were never intended. The abuse of prescription medications can lead to incidents of overdose and, in some cases, death. Between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 10, residents can simply go to any of the designated locations and anonymously drop off unwanted drugs. Police and medical officials urge you to do your part to combat this serious public health threat. Prescription Drug Drop Off Day is a one-day initiative supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), Partnership for a Drug Free Canada, and Public Safety Canada. Residents are further reminded that they can return any unwanted or outdated prescription medications to their local pharmacy for safe and secure disposal at any time. “Prescription medications are legal and intended for prescription use under a physician’s supervision. When taken as prescribed, they are safe. It is the misuse of the drug that is dangerous. I urge local residents to dispose of expired/unused/replaced medication or contact their pharmacy to find out how to do so safely,” A/Chief Scott Fraser commented. Submitted by the Brockville Police Service.

Business – Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) recently released its 2013 Annual Report, focusing on how the corporation contributes to market efficiency, a sound and stable housing finance system for Canada, increased housing quality and sustainability, while continuing to deliver federal investments in assisted housing. “CMHC’s 2013 Annual Report details how CMHC’s mortgage loan insurance and securitization activities have promoted the stability of the housing market and the financial system,” said Evan Siddall, president and Chief Executive Officer of CMHC. “The quality of the loans in our insured portfolio underscores our ongoing commitment to robust risk management practices that help support market discipline in mortgage lending, while minimizing taxpayer exposure to the housing sector.” In 2013, the mortgage loan insurance and securitization activities accounted for $1.7 billion of the corporation’s net income. Over the past 10 years, CMHC has contributed $18 billion toward improving the government’s fiscal position. CMHC’s strong underwriting practices and sound mortgage loan insurance portfolio are reflected in the 2013 results. Total insurance-inforce, which represents the aggregate exposure of the mortgage loan insurance activity, stood at $557 billion as at Dec. 31, 2013, down approximately $9 billion from the beginning of the year. Most borrowers with homeowner loans have high credit scores, and the average borrower equity in CMHC’s insurance portfolio has remained stable at 45 per cent, the same as last year. Other key figures show mortgage loan insurance claims paid during the year were $436 million, a $96 million or 18 per cent decrease from last year. In addition, the arrears rate of 0.34 per cent continued its

downward trend, a 0.01 point decrease compared to 2012. CMHC follows risk management practices as set out by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI), with CMHC maintaining more than twice the minimum capital required by OSFI for its mortgage loan insurance activities. Another cornerstone of Canada’s stable financial system in 2013 was CMHC’s $123 billion in securities guaranteed through its securitization programs, which helped both small and large lenders access funds for residential mortgage lending, thereby promoting competition in the mortgage market. The federal government, through CMHC, also provided investments of some $2 billion for housing in 2013, including $1.7 billion in federal funding in support of close to 600,000 households living in existing social housing, including Aboriginal peoples both on and off reserve, and approximately $250 million in new affordable housing. From April 2011 to the end of December 2013, federal funding delivered under the Investment in Affordable Housing totaled more than $635 million, and since the inception of the Investment in Affordable Housing Framework more than 177,544 households are no longer in housing need. CMHC provided objective housing research and advice to Canadian governments, consumers and the housing industry. CMHC’s 2013 Annual Report, entitled “Experience that Matters” is available online at www.cmhc.ca or by calling 1-800668-2642. As Canada’s national housing agency, CMHC draws on over 67 years of experience to help Canadians access a variety of quality, environmentally sustainable, and affordable housing solutions that will continue to create vibrant and healthy communities and cities across the country.

Putting the right tree in the right place takes planning News - If you are planning to plant a tree this spring, Hydro One has five tips to help you put the right tree, in the right place. Proper placement can reduce your energy consumption, keep your family safe and ensure the tree doesn’t impact nearby power lines. More than 30 per cent of power outages in Hydro One’s service territory are caused by tree contact. Hydro One removes trees and branches that could impact the delivery of electricity through its vegetation maintenance program. 1. Plant tall-growing trees at least eight metres away from power lines. Tree contact with power lines accounts for about 30 per cent of power outages in Ontario. 2. Deciduous (leaf-shedding) trees provide shade from the summer sun to cut down on heat gain, but lose their leaves in winter to let sunlight enter your home and maximize solar warmth and light. Place them to the south and the southwest to provide shade from late afternoon/evening sun. 3. A good windbreak includes a mixture of coniferous trees, deciduous shrubs, evergreen shrubs and perennial plants. The right combination planted tightly together can thoroughly shield your home from cold winter gusts. Even a single row of

white pine trees can reduce the speed of wind hitting your home by 60 per cent. 4. Low-growing evergreen shrubs planted beside basement walls add a green layer of insulation to your home’s exterior. Tightly placed shrubs help to keep warmth in and winter winds out. Remember to plant shrubs at least 60 centimeters away from your foundation walls. 5. Call before you dig to locate underground lines. Call Ontario One Call to book 1-800-4002255 or visit www.on1call.com. What is Arbour week? Arbour Day was founded in 1872 by J. Sterling Morton in Nebraska. It is now celebrated as a week-long event to recognize the important role trees play in our ecosystem. Hydro One utility arbourists are in your area planting a tree in celebration of Arbour Week. Hydro One is committed to teaching children about the importance of staying safe around trees and its power lines. This is why Hydro One’s utility arbourists are visiting 37 schools across the province from May 5 – 9. Following an in-class presentation, the trained professionals will plant a tree in the school yard and give students a seedling to plant at home.

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

Ontario realtors pass the test to assist buyers and sellers Then, real estate professionals participate in an articling program during their first two years as a registrant, taking additional courses while they work under the guidance of an experienced real estate broker. They must also complete continuing education courses including a real estate update course every two years in order to maintain their registration. In order to be called a “realtor,” a registered real estate professional must become a member of a local real estate board as well as the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) and the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA). When you work with a realtor, you can expect strict adherence to provincial law as well as to a national code of ethics ensuring you’ll

receive the highest level of service, honesty and integrity. Realtors in Ontario sought to bring about changes in the profession including a self-imposed code of ethics that increased consumer protection and imposed more stringent educational and registration requirements. The registration courses designed by OREA meet and exceed national standards set out in the National Code of Real Estate Education. In fact, OREA’s registration education program consistently earns education excellence awards. As well, courses are continually updated to ensure realtors are on the leading edge of real estate today. Quality education, ongoing training and a commitment to professionalism

Come spring, shoppers often ask, “What gift should Iget Mom for Mother’s Day?” How do people transform the sentiments they have for their mother into gifts that represent love and devotion? Buying a Mother’s Day gift is no easy task, especially for those who wait until the last minute to do their shopping. Beginning early can ease the pressure of Mother’s Day shopping. Research gift options at least a month prior so that you can read reviews on products and services to guarantee quality. You also want to make sure the gift will arrive on time if you will be ordering your gift online. Here are other ways to shop in a smart manner. * Do some sleuthing. Play detective and take inventory of what Mom likes to do the most. If you ask your mother what she wants, she will likely brush off the question and tell you nothing. It is up to you to do the investigative work. Pay attention to conversations and see if there is anything she mentions wanting to try or something around the house that may need updating. Practical gifts are less likely to end up unopened in the basement or attic.

NOW OPEN

* Check expiration dates. Gift certificates and cards for particular stores or services are popular come Mother’s Day. But it is essential to check expiration dates on the certificates or find gifts, as there is a good chance Mom will put off pampering herself and you would not want the gift to expire before she has a chance to use it. In compliance with the law, chain restaurant gift cards don’t expire for at least five years from purchase. Those might be your safest bet. * Verify a business. Although Mom may love a cute boutique that just opened, verify the business before buying a gift card from it. An unpredictable economy has made it even harder for new businesses to succeed, and you don’t Mom to be stuck with a worthless gift card should the new business not thrive. If she really likes a particular new business, take her on a shopping spree at the store instead. * Skip the chocolate overload. Flowers and chocolates are traditional Mother’s Day gifts. However, calorie-conscious women may not want to be faced with the temptation of a warehouse-sized box of chocolate treats. If Mom

BroKor Greenhouses… Where Quality Grows

truly loves chocolate, treat her to a gourmet piece or two, but don’t make that your main gift. * Avoid “final sale” items. It can be tempting to peruse the deep-discount rack at Mom’s favorite store when retailers cut prices on items in anticipation of a new season. However, these sales may come with restrictions on returns or exchanges. Unless you know Mom will like what you pick out, avoid the “final sale” racks in favor of items that can be returned or exchanged. * Ask for a price match. In an effort to keep a loyal customer base, many stores will price match against competitors’ ads. Therefore, if you feel more comfortable at a certain store, print out the advertised price and bring it to your favorite store. There’s a good chance they will give you the item for the same price. This works particularly well for tech gifts that typically go on sale in the days leading up to a holiday or special event. There are different ways to make shopping for Mother’s Day gifts a little easier and guarantee the best experience for Mom as well.

Tips for dining out on Mother’s Day name on the reservation list. Don’t forget Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 11, 2014. * Expect to wait. Even with a reservation, you’re bound to spend some time waiting at the restaurant. Other families may be lingering at their tables, as no one wants to rush Mom out of the door. Plan accordingly for a potentially long wait time. This means having a snack before you leave. Don’t arrive famished, as no one wants the dining party to be hungry and cranky, which is not a good way to celebrate Mom. Have plenty of snacks and drinks on hand for young children, as well as activities to keep them entertained. * Consider dining out a day before or after. Restaurants are generally packed on Mother’s Day, and as a result kitchen and wait staffs might be overtaxed. What’s more, diners might be relegated to a special or abbre-

viated menu. If you want a more relaxed setting and the ability to order whatever you desire, it may be a better idea to celebrate Mother’s Day in advance. Then have Mom enjoy a relaxing day at home on her special day. * Take-out is an option. Families can treat Mom to a dinner out, without really having to go out. Many restaurants offer takeout service, so you will not be limited to pizza or Chinese. Even chain restaurants have curbside service, so if Mom is in the mood for a burger or something more elaborate, she’ll have that option. * Expect an included gratuity. Restaurants often include a gratuity in the bill when servicing larger parties, such as those that might be celebrating Mother’s Day. The standard gratuity rate is 18 percent, but you may want to go above and beyond if you feel the service is exemplary. . TF145178

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and this special holiday serves to honor all those women who devote so much time and effort to their families. While gifts and other trinkets are certainly part of the celebration, a vast majority of children opt to treat Mom to a night out on the town come Mother’s Day. Not only does this give mom a night off from cooking, but also it presents an opportunity to get dressed up and spend time together as a family. Mother’s Day is one of the busiest holidays of the year for restaurants. With large crowds to be expected, diners can follow a few tips when treating Mom to a meal. * Book early ... very early. To guarantee a reservation at any restaurant, namely your favorite restaurant, you will need to make a reservation well in advance of Mother’s Day. It’s never too early to put your

THIS AD PRESENTED BY

Playhouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic director Ashlie Corcoran, this beloved story by Alfred Uhry introduces us to Miss Daisy (Nicola Lipman â&#x20AC;&#x201C; No Great Mischief, 2013) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a wealthy widow who is reluctant to accept the help of the new chauffeur (Walter Borden) hired by her son (Brian Linds). But over the course of 25 years, they share humorous adventures and find their relationship blossoming from one of necessity to one of true friendship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This play examines different types of prejudice in society - against African Americans, Jews, the elderly and women. It also looks at the struggle to retain dignity in oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old age,â&#x20AC;? says Corcoran. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The play explores these themes in a beautiful way - through the exploration of an unlikely friendship.

Herman Kluck, seen here at a recent business fair in Prescott, along with his wife Thecla, will be opening up the Dutch Hill Gallery this weekend for its third season. work by the Klucks themselves, both accomplished artists and teachers working in the unique and increasingly popular medium of Paverpol, a resin-like fabric hardener invented in the Klucks’ native Holland that allows an artist to create very arresting sculptures. The gallery has been open for only two seasons, but already the Dutch Hill Gallery has developed a reputation for showing only high-end work by artists of the first order, and the Klucks do all they can to help promote the local art

scene and encourage artists in the community. They regularly hold classes at the gallery for people interested in learning how to work with Paverpol, and they even hold seminars for other Paverpol teachers, as both Herman and Thecla have risen to the level of master practitioner. The gallery will also play host this fall to the Small Town Big Art festival, another showcase for area artists that proved so popular in its first iteration last September that the Klucks are eager to see it

repeated. As well, the Dutch Hill Gallery will be one of the stops on the upcoming 416 Art Cruze, a studio tour involving artists and galleries between Kemptville and Spencerville taking place later this month. The Dutch Hill Gallery is located at 2914 County Road 21, just west of the Village of Spencerville, and more information about the opening and what the gallery has to offer can be found at its revamped website at dutchhill.com.

Lifestyle - This summer looks like it will be one of the best at Spencerville’s Dutch Hill Gallery. In this the art gallery’s third season, visitors will be able to see exhibits of some of the finest art work this region has to offer, and it all begins this weekend, when the gallery opens for the season at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 10. “People have been asking for the last two months when the gallery was going to open again,” says Thecla Kluck, who, along with her husband Herman, owns and operates the gallery. Twenty different artists will be displaying their works in the rustic but stylish two-story gallery located just west of Spencerville. The Dutch Hill Gallery has become the de facto home base of the South Grenville Guild of Fine Art, with many of its top-notch artists setting up shop in the inviting exhibition space. “People should come out and see all the work on display,” says Herman. “Everything is new.” Among the exhibits, visitors will see drawings, paintings, photography, fibre arts, sculpture, pottery, stained glass and jewellery—much of it done by members of the guild but also by other artists the Kluck’s have discovered in their travels. “It’s all very high quality work,” says Herman The gallery also features

News - Students in Leeds-Grenville will have access to summer jobs to help them gain valuable skills and work experience, Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville, announced recently on behalf of Candice Bergen, Minister of State for Social Development. One hundred and one summer jobs are being created this year with the help of just over $250,000 in Canada Summer Jobs funding. Canada Summer Jobs helps students gain the skills and experience they need to be successful, now and in the future, while earning money for the upcoming school year. In 2014, the Canada Summer Jobs program is expected to create approximately 35,000 jobs across Canada, while helping employers address skills shortages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Creating summer jobs for students benefits not only youth and employers, but also local economies across the country. Canada Summer Jobs is yet another excellent example of how our government is creating jobs and economic growth,â&#x20AC;? explains Brown. Since 2006, the Youth Employment Strategy has helped more than 555,000 young people develop skills, to the benefit of the Canadian economy. Through Economic Action Plan 2014,

Left, Angela Smale and Steve Crossman, of canadaceilingtiles.com, joined dozens of other merchants and businesses in the Leo Boivin Community Centre in Prescott last weekend for the sixth annual Augusta-Prescott Business Fair and Expo. Canadaceilingtiles.com is primarily an online business, dealing in decorative ceiling adornments, but the company also has two showrooms, one in Prescott and one in Morrisburg. Above, illustrator and author Edie Batstone, along with her husband Ross, were among the many exhibitors and vendors who set up displays at last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth annual Augusta-Prescott Business Fair and Expo held at the Leo Boivin Community Centre. Included in Batstoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s display were the three childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books she has written and illustrated, along with examples of some of the gallery-quality fine art she creates.

News - Therapeutic Paws of Canada is looking for volunteers. Volunteering with your pet for just a few hours a month can be the most rewarding experience. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really understand it fully until I myself began visiting with my Rottweiler, Keirra, at a local long-term care facility. After passing the evaluation test and surviving the initial supervised visits, Keirra and I were much more at ease with our surroundings. As we got to know the residents it became quite apparent how much they looked forward to each visit and certainly let me know if I missed one! Not to forget the staff as well loved to see us come down the halls. Of course, Keirra enjoyed it tooâ&#x20AC;Ś..all the hugs, scratches under the ears and of course, the occasional treat! When we are getting ready to travel to our â&#x20AC;&#x153;visitâ&#x20AC;? Keirra is as fast as lightning getting into the van. Smiles of pure happiness for all. I hope that someone would take the time to visit me with their dog when that time comes for me. It truly

is an amazing feeling. Again this year the Brockville chapter of TPOC is holding its annual evaluation day on Sunday, May 11. We welcome applicants of all statures, large or small. Testing requirements and applications can be found on the website www.tpoc.com. If we have enough interest a second evaluation may be arranged later this year. We hope you can join us and help put more smiles out there. There will also be a garage sale this year to raise funds for our team. Please come out to find a treasure on Saturday, May 31 at 11 Duke St., off of Windsor Drive. Donations of clean/ working items accepted as well. Monetary donations always accepted. For more information about the garage sale or joining Therapeutic Paws of Canada and to pre register for evaluation please contact team leader, Ruth Sheridan at ruthsher@myhighspeed.com Submitted by Ilona Sly.

Police agencies working together to prevent prescription drug abuse Events - When a physician prescribes medication for a patient, it is only intended for that person. But sometimes when prescriptions lie around unused or expired, they can end up in the hands of those they are not intended for. When expired and unused prescription medication is left unattended, it can lead to prescription drug abuse. Police agencies and health organizations are working together again this year to fight against this public health and safety issue. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will be participating in a province-wide initiative that will provide residents an opportunity to dispose of old and unused prescription medications. Prescription Drug Drop Off Day will be held on Saturday, May 10, 2014. The OPP is making more than sixty detachment locations available so that the public can simply and safely dispose

of unwanted, unused or expired medications without exiting their vehicles. Officers and volunteers will be on hand to take the medications from community members on May 10 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The public is also reminded that they can drop off any unused medications at any time to their local pharmacist. “I fully support Prescription Drug Drop Off Day. In last year’s campaign, the OPP received over 330 kilograms of medications from 730 citizens. I urge all Ontarians with unused medications at home to work together and make our homes safer by participating in the 2014 Prescription Drug Drop Off Day,” Commissioner J.V.N. (Vince) Hawkes, Ontario Provincial Police urged. For a complete list of OPP detachments near you who will be participating in Prescription Drug Drop Off Day, visit opp.ca.

Boating season is back News - Attention boaters. Before putting your boat on the water, check all life saving, distress and safety equipment and make sure that it is in the boat and that it works. An empty fire extinguisher won’t help put out a fire, nor will a flash light with dead batteries signal for help. The OPP SAVE Team recommends boaters wear a life jacket or personal flotation device at all times. Once you fall into the water it’s too late. If operating a motorized boat after sunset and before sunrise, or in restricted visibility, navigation lights are

required. Check them before you go on the water to make sure they work. Criminal Code drinking and driving offences apply to boats. Don’t mix alcohol and boating. Your Automobile Drivers Licence will be suspended.

Killing too many deer proves costly for Delta man News - A Delta man has pleaded guilty and been fined a total of $3,000 for hunting-related offences. Gordon H. White was fined $1,000 for killing and abandoning two white-tailed deer and allowing their flesh to become unfit for human consumption; $1,000 for obstructing a conservation officer, and $1,000 for unlawfully killing more than one white-tailed deer. His hunting licence was also suspended for four years. The court heard that on Nov. 13, 2013, White shot at three deer while hunting and failed to determine if any had been killed. White subsequently discovered he had killed all three deer. Since he only had one game seal, he attempted to acquire another game seal from local hunters but was declined. White abandoned two of the dead deer and affixed his game seal to a third – a ma-

ture buck – which he hung from a tree located on the property he was hunting on. The next day, a conservation officer inspected the buck to ensure compliance. An investigation revealed that White had killed three deer, two of which he abandoned and allowed to spoil. The buck was seized during the investigation and was forfeited to the Crown. Justice of the Peace Raymond J. Switzer heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Brockville, April 2, 2014. For further information on hunting regulations, please consult the Hunting Regulations Summary available at ontario.ca/ hunting. To report a natural resources violation, call 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) toll-free any time or contact your local ministry office during regular business hours. You can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

News - Now that day time temperatures have risen above 4°C ticks have once again become active. Please remember to be tick smart. Dressing with light coloured clothing makes adult ticks and nymphs (small stage of the tick), easier to see when they are on you. Always remember to do a tick check when you return inside. Thoroughly check your body for ticks and nymphs and promptly remove and dispose of them. Have someone check you from behind if possible or take a quick shower to help remove any unattached ticks. It is important to know that Lyme disease transmission depends on the length of time the tick is attached. If the tick or nymph is removed within 24 hours of when it may have attached to you, then you have a minimal risk of acquiring Lyme disease. If the tick or nymph has been attached for longer than 24 hours and does carry the bacteria, you are at an increased risk of getting Lyme disease. When a tick has been attached to you greater than 24 hours and it looks like it has fed and is enlarged, it is recommended that you contact your health care provider and advise them of this. Remember, not all ticks carry the bacteria. Submission of the tick or nymph to the Health Unit will not affect your treatment. Identification and results of the tick submission will take up to three months. Tick submission to the health unit is for surveillance, not disease diagnosis. If you have been bitten by a tick, watch for symptoms of Lyme disease: bull’s eye rash around a bite area, headache, fever and muscle/joint pain. Consult your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. For more information about ticks and Lyme disease, contact the Health Unit on the web at www.healthunit.org, call 1-800-660-5853 or like the Health Unit Facebook page for important public health updates.

So if you who have a mother, Cherish her with care, For you’ll never know the heartache, Till you see her vacant chair. Happy Mother’s Day Mom! We miss you everyday. Love forever and always. XOXO Daughter Debbie, son David, daughter-in-law Lisa; grandchildren Nathan, Katelind, Tanya and great grandson Taylor.

MacDONALD, Martha – In loving memory of our precious mother whom passed away three years ago, May 12, 2011. There is a corner in our hearts, Mom, You visit every day; It gives us this warm feeling, That you are never far away. Though your smile is gone forever, And your hand we cannot touch; Still we have so many memories, Of a mother we loved so much. Your memory is our keepsake, With which we’ll never part; God has you in His keeping, We have you in our hearts. Sadly missed, but never forgotten. Love your daughters Eleanor, Shirley, Linda and families

NEWS

Trial roadside weed control program to run late May to June News - The highlights of the regular United Counties of Leeds and Grenville council meeting held April 24 and the Committee of the Whole session April 8 are listed below. A trial-run weed spraying program is being introduced in two Leeds Grenville townships in a bid to control the spread of noxious weeds. The trial is part of the overall United Counties 2014 Roadside Weed Control Program to ensure clear sight lines along roadways and intersections and for the control of dangerous and invasive weeds. Roadside herbicide spraying will be on all counties roads outside of settlements in Augusta and Edwardsburgh-Cardinal townships, with the exceptions on Leeds Grenville Roads 2 and 45. Residents who don’t wish to participate can request a “No Spray” sign from the counties. Signs must be put in a prominent place on lawns and ditches. Areas sprayed will be from the road shoulder to the fence line. Spraying will be done from May 27 to June 20. Any stretches where landowners are mowing and maintaining their ditches will not be sprayed. For general inquiries and additional information or to find out more about picking up a “No Spray” sign call 613-342-3840, ext. 2413. Additional

information will be available on the Counties website at www.leedsgrenville.com. Public notification will also be placed in area newspapers and online news sources in the coming weeks. The effectiveness of the herbicide trial will be reviewed to determine if the program should be expanded into other local municipalities next year. The type of herbicide being used will be based on guidelines and research conducted by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) and approved for use by the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. A presentation to counties committee of the whole by forest manager, Geoff McVey outlined how the 2013 program, including the use of six mowers, slowed the growth but didn’t eradicate wild parsnip and dog strangling vine. Timed mowing was used on wild parsnip and herbicides were sprayed on the invasive dog strangling vine to reduce seed development. McVey said mowing alone is not controlling the spread of the weeds and in some cases it is spreading the seeds. Weed control is also a public safety issue as wild parsnip can cause severe allergic reactions and the vine has a negative effect on maple syrup production, woodlots, agriculture and

threatens biodiversity. Regional policing Brockville Police’s Acting Chief, Scott Fraser and King Yee Jr, chair of the city’s Police Services Board, gave a presentation to the Leeds Grenville committee of the whole to see if the 10 member municipalities within the United Counties are interested in a regional policing model. Acting Chief Fraser and Yee provided a background on how the City of Brockville began last fall investigating the possibility of regional policing. They are currently awaiting the province’s costing model. The intent is to provide a service that is cost effective with partnerships designed to share resources. Yee asked which municipalities would be interested in participating and whether it is logistically possible. It was noted the cost estimate will have to include personnel and infrastructure. Examples of regional policing, including the Region of Durham, Simcoe County, and the City of Owen Sound were outlined. The committee’s recommendation is to take the topic back to the individual municipalities for further discussion. Submitted by the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville..

LCBO stores raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada News — Starting April 27, the public can help support Cystic Fibrosis Canada during May, Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month by making a donation at any of the more than 635 LCBO stores throughout Ontario. Donation boxes for Cystic Fibrosis Canada will be displayed at LCBO checkouts until May 24. “We are grateful for the support of the LCBO, its employees and especially its customers, to help raise funds and awareness to help Canadians with cystic fibrosis,” says Maureen Adamson, president and CEO of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. “Through the support of our partners, like LCBO, we are able to continue to invest in life-saving CF research and care. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the fight against cystic fibrosis.” “LCBO is pleased to partner with Cystic Fibrosis Canada and support a variety of worthy causes throughout the year,” says LCBO president and CEO Bob Peter. “The generous support from

LCBO customers and staff helps these charitable organizations make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and communities across Ontario.” Cystic Fibrosis Canada is one of 28 provincial, as well as numerous local charities, that will benefit from LCBO’s province-wide donation box program in 2014. In 2012, LCBO raised a total of more than $6.6 million for charities through special programs and initiatives, of which $6.1 million was raised through in-store fundraising. In addition, LCBO’s annual dividend transfer to the Ontario government, which totalled $1.7 billion in fiscal 2012-13, excluding taxes, supports a wide range of important government programs, services and priorities, including health care and education. Cystic Fibrosis Canada thanks the public for its support when shopping at their local LCBO store from April 27 – May 24. Cystic Fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. It is a multisystem disease that affects mainly the lungs and the digestive system. In the lungs, where the effects are most devastating, a build-up of thick mucus causes severe respiratory problems. Mucus and protein also build up in the digestive tract, making it difficult to digest and absorb nutrients from food. As improved therapies have helped to address the malnutrition issues, ultimately most deaths related to cystic fibrosis are due to lung disease. There is no cure. Cystic Fibrosis Canada Cystic Fibrosis Canada is one of the world’s top three charitable organizations committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and is an internationallyrecognized leader in funding CF research, innovation, and clinical care.

Patterson to retire from Upper Canada District School Board News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A superintendent who played a key role in transforming the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) into the quality system it is today has announced her retirement. Superintendent of Human Resources Charlotte Patterson will retire Aug. 31 following a 36-year career in education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly something that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been thinking about for a while,â&#x20AC;? said Patterson last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big decision and you have to be comfortable with it. I have had a long and fulfilling career with the Upper Canada District School Board and I believe that I have made a significant contribution.â&#x20AC;? Patterson began her career in education in 1978 as a teacher with the former Leeds and Grenville County Board of Education where she worked at several schools in Brockville and the surrounding area. She was later promoted to vice principal, and then served as principal at Rideau Vista Public School, Rideau Centennial Public School and Oxford-on-Rideau Public School. Leading the improvement of student learning in these local communities was a highlight of Pattersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career. In 2001, she began her system leadership as special assistant to former director of education Gino Giannandrea. She served as a regional superintendent for the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former Capital region â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the area of the board that â&#x20AC;&#x153;horseshoesâ&#x20AC;? around Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the St. Lawrence region, supervising schools throughout the board from 2004 to 2008. Patterson was appointed superintendent of human resources in 2008.

In her current role, Patterson has developed an extensive network of colleagues across the province and recently served as the co-chair of Senior Human Resources Officials of Ontario. Perhaps her most significant role as a member of the senior team was as co-chair of both the Boundary 2020 and Building 2020 processes, which rationalized the number of schools in the board, introduced the successful Grades 7-12 model in most of the high schools, and ensured French immersion instruction was available equally to all students within the board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Throughout my career, I was afforded many opportunities.

I recently received an email from a resident from Quebec with a story on his BMW. He took his BMW x328 (that he thought was still within terms of the base four year warranty) into his selling/ servicing dealership for a maintenance inspection. Apparently the warranty end-date was misread and the vehicle was actually beyond the four-year term but with relatively low mileage (47,500km). During the inspection the techs found an oil leak from a cracked engine valve cover. The dealer told him BMW would cover the cost of the part, but he would be responsible for the labour charges ($624). He agreed and the repair was completed. Soon after, a series of warning lights came on our BMW ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dash (coolant level, anti-lock brakes and the 4WD system). Another appointment and diagnosis and he was told the coolant level sensor required replacement as well as the 4WD transfer-case motor. He again agreed and once more BMW covered the part (this time the 4WD motor only) and our owner paid out $734. After all this the owner still had a sour taste over the repairs and asked my opinion as to whether or not he should contact BMWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head offices in Europe for some further consideration. He felt that the rocker cover was probably cracked before the warrantyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expiry, R0012481266_1219

that his dealership gave him the wrong info on the warranty expiry date, and that the last two failures represented a poorer quality than BMW was known for, specifically in light of the relatively low mileage. I passed his email (with his permission) along to the media office of BMW Canada and asked for a response. Their representatives reviewed the repairs with the servicing dealership and responded that they believed their original offer to cover the cost of the parts involved was more than fair in regards to the fact that the warranty had indeed expired. Without any documentation or reports it would be hard to pin-point the exact time of the various failures. They also noted that complete warranty information including expiry date is supplied to every BMW purchaser. They commented that any communication of this nature that was forwarded to BMWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s global HQ would simply be sent to their Canadian office for review. They apologized for our ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inconvenience and concerns. About the only morals of the story I can offer for our BMW owner is to know when your vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warranty is set to expire and have a complete inspection done before that date and that an extended warranty plan might be a good purchase when dealing with higher-end vehicles.

Chris Urmson, director, Self-Driving Car Project reported that their fleet of driver-less cars have passed the 700,000 mile mark.

A good fitness program leads to good golf

Upcoming Ladies Golf Clinic at the Tincap Golf Course News - It’s that time of year again especially after a long cold winter. Starting Monday, May 26 the Tincap Golf Course will once again be hosting a Ladies Golf Clinic. The program is open to all skill levels and the cost is $150 per participant. The clinic will consist of seven 90 minute sessions (Monday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m.) plus a green fee ticket to play the Tincap Golf Course. The program will once again be taught by CGTF Level Three Teaching Professional J.R. Ryan and it will cover all the basics. Full swing fundamentals, chipping, pitching, putting and some golf course strategies will be included in the seven week program. If there is enough interest there will be an extra half hour (six sessions) devoted to advanced golfers. There will also be an additional charge for the advanced ladies as well. To register or to get more information please call or e-mail Ryan at 613-3451390 or jrryan@bell.net.

JR’s Golf Tip of the Week John Ryan

golf but good health as well. Obviously a good diet is also essential and I am not touching that one with a 10 foot pole. It would be a smart idea to consult with your doctor before you engage in any strenuous physical activity just to be on the safe side. A lot of the flexibility, stretching and strength training exercises I use for my golf training I got from golf training experts Roger Fredericks and Joey ‘D’ Diovisalvi. As you get older you will lose your upper body flexibility and this will drastically affect your ability to turn your shoulders. This leads to considerable distance loss. You can also use your training routine as a pre-round warm up. Don’t over do it though. One of the promising young junior golfers I was working with hired himself a personal trainer. Unfortunately for him the guy had no clue about the golf swing and therefore tried to add lots of muscle to this young lad. This in turn led this young lad to have a limited shoulder turn and to make matters worse caused him to injure his lower back. The end result was this once promising golfer could barely break 90 in tournament golf. If you seek a personal trainer, make sure they are familiar with the golf swing and the motion needed to make it efficient. When lifting weights it’s alright to get yourself stronger but you don’t want to bulk up here and limit your flexibility. A friend of mine Dan De Luis runs a Yoga Studio in Brockville. Yoga is excellent for golf as it concentrates on your

breathing and making your muscles feel more elastic. I have played with and taught a lot of golfers over the years who want to bomb the ball off the tee 300 yards or so. They can’t do it because their body won’t allow them to do what they need to to bomb it. Whether it is they are just too stiff and not flexible enough or too weak in crucial areas of their bodies. You don’t have to over do it, just do it three or four times a week for 30 minutes each session and then within a couple of months you will notice a dramatic change in your game. If you walk when you play it wouldn’t be a bad idea to work on your cardio so you don’t tire as you get close to the end of your round. You can do this by walking around a block or two, ride a stationary bike, get on an elliptical, walker or a treadmill. If you want proof of what fitness can do for your game, look at what happened to Phil Mickelson’s game when he finally made that commitment a few years back. Not everybody wants to play on the Tour, but we all want to hit the ball better. And it’s not necessarily your golf swing that will cause you the frustrations you are going through, it could simply be your body. Don’t take my word for it, or what you hear the golf broadcaster’s saying about the effect fitness has had on certain Tour player’s games. Experience it for yourself and I will guarantee you be will be a better golfer for it. And not only will your fitness routine help your golf game but it will also help your overall health as well. That’s not a bad thing is it? J.R. Ryan, CGTF Level Three Teaching Professional, teaches exclusively at the Tincap Golf Course. You can reach J R at 613-345-1390 or e-mail at jrryan@ bell.net.

Sports - It’s been a long cold winter and if you have just been sitting around waiting for the golf season to start it could also be a long summer for you as well. But on the other hand if you worked on your fitness during the off season then your golf game is definitely going to reap the rewards of your hard work. Talking about fitness for golf we are talking about improving your flexibility, stretching, strength training and cardio training. If you worked on all these areas you should have a great golf season. As far back as the golf experts can remember, the great Ben Hogan was one of the early pioneers when it comes to fitness for golf. ‘Bantam Ben’ as he was known for his diminutive size, concentrated his training to his core and leg strength to generate his incredible club head speed. Gary Player came along and took the fitness torch from there and he raised the bar to another level with his regimen. Even at 79 Player still adheres to an impressive daily workout routine. Six time major champion Nick Faldo dabbled into the fitness craze to a certain degree. Fellow Tour player Greg Norman also incorporated a structured fitness routine that saw him as the number one player in the world for over 300 weeks before Eldrick Tiger Woods came along. Tiger took golf and fitness into a stratosphere that no other Tour golfer ever ventured into. It was perhaps so physically demanding that it has led him to the number of injuries he is dealing with today. I don’t profess to be a fitness expert, but I do know what my workout regimen, which I have done for years, has done for my golf game. I personally concentrate on stretching, flexibility, strength training and cardio. This has helped me maintain pretty good flexibility in my upper body allowing me to turn my shoulders about 110 degrees. Stretching, flexibility, strength training and cardio is not only key to good
