tion of a 12-foot birch bark canoe as well as eight-inch long decorative canoes. The 12-foot canoe was used during the Tall Ships Festival 1812 Tour in Brockville during the Parade of Sail. “She thought wouldn’t it be great to bring the canoe project to Gananoque,� Running explained. A proposal was put together and the Commandas, who have presented workshops on their craft in such prestigious locations as the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, made their way to Gananoque.

Entertainment - There will be some big changes backstage at the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival next summer, but on stage, the venerable theatre company will continue to provide audiences a high-end, professional showcase of Shakespeare’s masterworks. This upcoming season – which will feature productions of The Tempest and Two Gentlemen of Verona – will be the ninth and last for artistic director Ian Farthing. Last week, his replacement was revealed in front of a crowd of curious theatre fans gathered at the festival’s summer home at Prescott’s waterfront amphitheatre. Accomplished director Rona Waddington will take over for Farthing after this season, accepting the mantle officially in December and putting her own stamp on the celebrated St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival in the summer of 2015. “Knowing that Rona will be here, I can leave feeling extremely confident that the festival will continue to grow and thrive,� said Farthing. Waddington’s arrival in Prescott ensures the festival will be in good hands, not only because she has proven herself a gifted and creative director in theatres around the world, but because she has proven the same right here in the Fort Town. It was Waddington calling the shots last summer behind the scenes of the festival’s acclaimed production of Hamlet, which won her a best director award from the Ottawa-based Capital Critics Circle. “I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed being here last summer,� she said. “I am delighted to be back.� Over the course of four months, the festival board gave

The Grade 7 through 10 youth are thoroughly enjoying their endeavours building 13 threefoot-long Algonquin birch bark canoes in addition to a life-sized 12-foot version. The program is to last approximately a month. Chuck and Janet Commanda, expert canoe builders, have been on hand since April 28 leading construction.

family of master canoe builders has built a deep appreciation and sincere talent within him for the craft. Students are coming together in groups, “to put the boats together around the wooden frames of the miniature boats and to fasten the bark onto the frame using spruce roots,� notes an Upper Canada District School Board press release.

Impressive credentials It is a testament to Waddington’s impressive credentials that she ended up topping so remarkable a list. “It was clear that Rona brought a wealth of experience and a passion for Prescott,” said Beckstead. Waddington is at present serving as assistant director of the Stratford Festival’s current production of Antony and Cleopatra, and in the fall, she will be Photo by CONAN de VRIES heading to Paris, France to direct King Last week, Ian Farthing (left), the

careful consideration to 18 applications for the open artistic director position before settling on Waddington. Farthing was involved up to the short-list stage before he stepped aside to let board members make the final selection. The calibre of those who applied was a surprise, as Farthing and members of the board expected only a handful of worthy candidates, not the surfeit of lengthy and impressive resumes from around the country that they ended up getting. “It’s a signal that the festival’s reputation is starting to be recognized nationally,” said board chair Jo-Anne Beckstead.

Chuck and Janet have harvested the bark being used for the project in Gananoque, from locations such as Mattawa and Calabogie. Often the two will travel thousands of kilometres for bark. The two are kept busy. After they are finished in Gananoque, they move onto Toronto, then Lanark in August, and other locations to share their skills.

The honourary chair of the Riverside GM Hole-in-One Challenge is Henderson from Smiths Falls. Henderson is the third ranked women’s amateur golfer in the world. This 16 year old is the 2013 Canadian Women’s Amateur Champion, along with holding numerous other amateur titles.

News – It was announced at the Relay for Life Captains’ May Meeting that 24 teams have signed up for the annual event. The goal is 50 and, according to previous years, the teams signing up is on target, if not a bit ahead with the same indicator for online pledges. “We are half-way to our team registration,� said co-chair Karen Leeder. Continuing, Christina Covey Shannon passed out the Relay for Life Guide to Fundraising to individuals who had not attended the last meeting. “It goes over setting fundraising goals for yourself and all the different levels that we are recognizing people for,� said Covey Shannon. “It also has fundraising ideas. As well, hot off the press is the Circle of Support, which is broken down into co-workers, relatives, friends near and far, social media friends and followers, social and religious groups and relatives.� At the very bottom of the pamphlet it outlined what the various levels of funds will do. For example a $35 pledge would empower one cancer patient to

connect to Cancer Information Service to better understand their diagnosis and make informed decisions about their health. For $50, this pledge provides transportation for one cancer patient to lifesaving treatment, so they can focus on getting well, not to worry about how to travel to their treatment. Seventy dollars enables two families to travel to their child’s life saving cancer treatment appointment, which helps to ease the emotional and financial burdens of a sick child and $125 connects one patient with a cancer survivor who has been there, through the Peer Support Program providing support from diagnosis through recovery. The $300 level covers the cost of cancer cells needed for one research project. “People always ask where does the money go and how is it being used,� stated Covey Shannon. “So that’s really unique information to give to people.� One other fundraising tool was the Scratch and Give cards, wherein each spot could be scratched to reveal an amount ranging from $1, $5 or $10.

The total amount on a card once all the spots are scratched is $100. As well, the 12-hour Sponsor Card was introduced this year. The sponsorship is broken down into 12-hour intervals which people select the hours for the person relaying and pay for that timeframe. Schedule of events “We are still working on the schedule of events and tonight we will go over the general itinerary,� indicated Leeder. “Trailers and tents can be brought anytime during Friday, June 13.� Entertainment will start about 5 p.m. on the main stage with 104.9 BOB-FM personalities taking over the stage leading up to the opening ceremonies. Back as Master of Ceremonies is Claude Clement. During the radio personality stint, Jamison Bridal will also be giving a haircut. “After the Survivor Walk, all the teams will then make their way around the track,� continued Leeder. “Team photos will also be taken.� See RELAY page 7

According to Covey Shannon, there will be a video booth similar to a Speaker’s Corner or Why Do I Relay, with the final product to be used for future promotional purposes. “There will be three massage therapists,� said Leeder. “The Best Decorated site will take place again, along with the bead laps, a Hallowe’en Hour and Starbucks as well as Tim Hortons will be there at some point. The Kids Zone will happen, Relay Got Talent is back, a silent auction, and as well another sponsor Wilderness Tours Adventure Resort had donated 12 tickets for a full-day rafting tour.� There may be a possibility for Kids Yoga to be offered during the night. As in previous years, breakfast comes after the Rooster Call at 5:30 on Saturday, the next morning and closing ceremonies. “This is a rough idea of what’s to come, but be assured that there will be nonstop excitement,� said Leeder. The Survivors Reception will include dinner provided by the Keystorm Pub and cancer survivors are encouraged to contact Jodi at 613-340-5118. There will be a charge of $10 for the caregiver’s meal. During the meeting, it was noted that more volunteers would be greatly appreciated.

Events – Get the dirt on soil at a unique Transition Brockville event Sunday, May 25, at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, featuring Dirt! The Movie, followed by a wide-ranging Q&A workshop on soils presented by Soperton gardener Dave Alguire. The documentary illustrates how precious soil is and how rapidly human activities such as industrial agriculture and resource extraction are destroying that thin layer of life-giving soil on which the planet’s billions of humans depend. The message is that we ourselves are dirt; if we destroy the soils, we destroy ourselves. The film concludes by showing the ways people all over the world are learning to repair and honour the soil. Following the film, people will have the chance to view soil, compost and related displays set up by Alguire. Then, in response to questions from the group, Alguire will give practical tips on amendments we can use to improve soil. He’ll bring samples of different kinds of soils, along with sedimentation samples of the soils in jars, so people can see the layers of silt, sand, soil and organic matter. He’ll also have a microscope and slides of soil to show the complex composition of soil and the life within it. He can discuss the mineral and organic components of good soil. “Basically, I’ll cover anything about soil that comes up,� he promises. All those who want to improve the quality of the soil in which their flowers and vegetables grow are encouraged to come to St. Paul’s Anglican Church hall on Sunday at 2 p.m. (Please note the change in venue for this one presentation.) Fresh, buttered popcorn will be served during the film. Transition Brockville (TB) was founded by local residents seven years ago to provide a non-partisan forum

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Reflecting back on fascinating nursing career DEAR EDITOR

On June 1, 1943, I joined the staff of obstetrics at Kingston General Hospital. In 1942 I had graduated from the Brockville General Hospital training school for nurses. The first three months of 1943 I successfully completed a post-graduate course in obstetrics at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. The Department of Obstetrics was located in the Nickle Wing of the hospital. It had four floors. The first three were for patients, each with a nursery. The fourth floor was for labour and deliveries. The supervisor was Gertrude McCulloch, a true professional. In a few years she had to leave to go home to the Belleville area to

care for her aging parents. Margaret Grant was hired. She trained in Toronto and I became her assistant. One memorable incident – somehow one day a baby went home with the wrong mother to Napanee. The error was discovered at the next feeding time. The father brought the infant back and as the exchange was made he said, “I hope the next one is as good as this one.” One day a man came running into the front door of the hospital and said his wife was having a baby in the car. He was directed to the ambulance entrance, but first he had to crank the car to start the See LETTERS page 10

Editorial – While the Victoria Day weekend may have come and gone, the first official holiday weekend of the summer brings with it the advent of more people on our roadways. This time of year is traditionally a time for opening up the family cottage for the season and getting out and enjoying the milder weather. Included in the increased traffic are off-road vehicles and motorcycles. Due to the rising number of fatalities throughout the province, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is asking the public to be mindful when operating off-road vehicles (ORV) and motorcycles. According to a release from the OPP, 20 people died in ORV accidents in 2013, a spike from 12 in 2012. Alcohol and lack of helmet use remain large factors. OPP Deputy Commissioner Brad Blair said that over the past 10 years, 263 people have died from ORV incidents that could have been avoided. Choosing to combine alcohol and a lack of helmets when using an ORV makes little sense. Many of these senseless deaths could have been avoided if users would have strapped on a simple piece of equipment to protect them. Is such a poor decision worth the pain and suffering victims’ families go through? Motorcycle deaths are on the rise as well with 28 fatalities in 2013. Only 11 of that number were driving properly. Because motorcyclists have less protection on roadways, it’s important for all motorists to be aware of their surroundings and watch out for motorcycles. Throughout the long weekend, the OPP were out in full force to patrol the roads and protect motorists, which fits in nicely with Canada Road Safety Week (May 13 to 19). During this initiative and as always, the OPP will be focusing on educating and enforcing the most dangerous driving behaviours, including failure and improper use of seatbelts, distracted/aggressive driving, as well as alcohol or drug impairment. Enjoy the advent of the summer season, the warmer weather, but also remain prudent when on roadways and when enjoying off-road vehicles. Ensure safety is at top of mind at all times.

The minister was a bit like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Lifestyle - The minister, I thought, was like he was two different people. I had an unbelievable fear of him when he was in church delivering what seemed to be an endless sermon with words that were completely above my head. I had no idea what he was talking about, and when we left the service to go to our Sunday school class, I lived in dread that the Sunday school teacher would ask me what I had learned that day from the sermon. Thankfully she was high on the Beatitudes and the Psalms, and that was usually what our lesson was about. The minister was a whale of a man, and when he walked down the middle of the church to get to the pulpit, his shoes squeaked like fury, which Emerson said meant they hadn’t been paid for. How he knew that bit of information was beyond me. By the time the minister had climbed into the pulpit which was a round carved

wood affair high above the pews, he was panting like he was going to take his last breath, and winter and summer, the sweat poured off his face in little rivulets. He frowned a lot, and I always thought he was angry with the lot of us, or that he knew that some of us had committed some horrible sin. And to emphasise a point, he pounded the rail of the pulpit with his bible that I was sure would one day fly out of his hand and hit me square on the head since we sat in the front pew, a few feet away.

His wife, whom Mother said was a saint...a pure saint, sat ramrod straight, looking neither left nor right. Through perfect planning, Sunday school always ended at the exact time the last hymn was being sung in the church. Then we children marched back into the church, standing at the door where we were expected to shake hands with the minister. This scared the living starch out of me, convinced that he could read my mind and he would know every evil thought I had ever had in my head about bad Marguirite, and know ever sin I had ever committed. I couldn’t wait to get in the buggy and get back home to the farm. And often then, I would see another side to our minister. I wasn’t sure if it was part of his duties as our spiritual leader, or if he just liked a good meal occasionally, but we could always count on a pastoral visit at least once every two weeks when the summer weather

came. He didn’t own a car, but he did have a buggy, and an old nag of a horse that was much like our poor old Harry with the heaves. You could have walked in our lane faster than the minister’s horse pulling the buggy! And he always came at our dinner time at the noon hour. Mother would pump his hand, welcome him in, and my sister Audrey, without even being asked, would scrunch up the plates on the table, and make room for another place. Mother made no effort to tidy things up, or make the meal more fancy. We didn’t even get out the dishes that had come in puffed wheat. The only change was Mother sat between my sister Audrey and me, leaving the end of the table for the Minister. Father, of course, sat where he always did, at the other end. And instead of Father saying Grace, the minister, on Mother’s invitation said the blessing, which was long and pur-

poseful. Then I would see an entirely different man from the one I saw in the Lutheran church on Sunday. He and Father told jokes, slapping the table with the palm of their hands, and all the time, he was amply lading his plate with seconds and even third helpings of everything before him, which pleased Mother beyond words. Even a visitor the stature of the minister, didn’t stop Father from pouring out his tea into his saucer to cool it off, and then drinking it. And as soon as the meal was over, Father got up from the table, minister or not, and headed back out to the fields. Always, I knew what was going to happen next. Audrey would be sent to the smoke house and the chicken coop. She would come back with a roast and a link or two of sausages, and a small See MARY page 10 • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

Events – Above, students from St. John Bosco Catholic School in Brockville were among nearly 500 area students who took part in the fifth annual Eastern Ontario Children’s Water Festival held last week at the Drummond Building in Spencerville. The festival is the creation of Cornwall’s St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Studies, which runs three such festivals every summer, one each in Spencerville, Cornwall and Casselman. The event introduces kids to the science of water and issues with respect to its conservation. In Spencerville, the event is supported by the Leeds-Grenville Stewardship Council and the South Nation Conservation Authority.

One woman was admitted in labour, which stopped shortly after she was admitted. She wanted the doctor to induce labour, but he said, “No. When the apple is ripe it will fall,” to which she said, “Can’t you shake the tree?”

The minister would pump Mother’s hand, ruffle my hair, tell Audrey again how she was growing into a fine young woman, and my three brothers that he would see them in church, and then with great effort he would climb into the buggy, and the old horse without any direction from his owner, would turn in the yard and head out the lane. Audrey and I would help Mother redd up the kitchen and she would tell us how poor the minister was, and how little he was paid, and that often he and his wife didn’t have enough money to buy food, and how they would rely on the generosity of the members of the Lutheran church to survive. I knew the Depression was all around us, but I didn’t know anyone out in the country who didn’t have enough food for their table. I would watch the buggy disappear into the farthest reaches of the lane, and I would think again how the minister was like two different people.

Girls Inc. of Upper Canada honours Women of the Year By DOREEN BARNES

News – Seven diverse, active and vibrant women were honoured on Tuesday, May 6 at the Marianne van Silfhout Gallery at St. Lawrence College, Brockville. Girls Incorporated of Upper Canada’s choices for 2014 Strong, Smart and Bold Women of the Year included Dr. Heather Eyerly, Angie Fodey, Donna Garvin, Angela Hartley, Sonya Jodoin, Wendy Onstein and Maxime Weber. As noted by master of ceremonies Carrie Hands, “We are holding this event to honour women who are leaders in our community. Our honourees are role models that all girls in Leeds and Grenville can look up to, as an example of the potential that girls can reach.� Hands mentioned that the process that Girls Inc. followed in the receipt of nominations from the public, was with a committee of community members, unaffiliated with Girls Inc., who reviewed and selected the honourees. “These women are remarkable individuals and we are thrilled to be celebrating them this evening,� added Hands. As interim executive director of Girls Incorporated of Upper Canada Karen McDonald-Hurley spoke to those gathered, she Photo by DOREEN BARNES

with the silent auction. As well, Erin Bickerton, Grace Windsor and Caleigh Bertrend shared their views on Girls Inc. and the Girls Inc. Bill of Rights. Award recipients One by one Hands invited the recipients, in alphabetical order, onto the stage to receive their award and be acknowledged. “The first honouree is Dr. Heather Eyerly, associate professor at SUNY Potsdam where she teaches courses in music education, conducting and conducts the Hosmer Choir,� said Hands. “She also serves as the artistic director of Brockville Community Choir and founded the Brockville Youth Choir and the Children’s Chorus of Crane of Potsdam.� Eyerly plays many musical instruments, recently learning the banjo, plus she is a triathlete. Angie Fodey When secondary midwife and community volunteer Angie Fodey heard of the intention to commemorate the anniversary of the tragic death of a local teacher, who had worked with an autistic boy, she decided to help. From the material of the deceased teacher’s clothes, a fabric heart was crafted and added to each scarf made. “Over 300 orders at $10 each were processed and a request for more was added to the list,� said Hands. “Fodey, herself sold over 300 scarves and donated all the proceeds to the autistic boy’s family to help with autism related programming expenses.� Donna Garvin “She volunteers at her church, for cancer drives and was with the non active Telephone Pioneers,� stated Hands. “As a former Girl Guide leader, she helped organize the annual camp out including the food purchase, preparation and ensuring that all the girls had a great time.� A stand-up comedian and puppeteer, Garvin entertains at lodges and retirement homes. She’s a cancer survivor, who drives cancer patients to and from appointments in Kingston and Ottawa. Her nominator said, “They say angels walk among us, and they take the form of Donna Garvin.� Garvin had those present is stitches as she gave a sampling of Daisy Mae from Lake Eloida Way. Angela Hartley “Hartley obtained her fitness training certificate to provide a fitness class or a boot camp from her home in Athens,� said Hands. People have probably seen her volunteering at Ribfest, staffing water stations for various runs and organized a group that manned the 5K registration at the Boston Marathon for the last two years, as well as planned and organized an event called the Friendly Run. Sonya Jodoin For 27 years, Jodoin has worked in the field of social services in Leeds and Grenville and is executive director at Victim Services since 2009. “Jodoin has created programs including Family Court Support Worker Program, a youth program and a mobile tracking system program,� said Hands. Her nominator stressed that Jodoin has assisted countless women, men and children through difficult events and tragedies, while supporting other service providers in their work.

Events - The South East Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) is pleased to present a Home Health Care Expo at the Brockville Convention Centre from 2 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 29. “As our population ages and age related conditions rise, a strong home and community care sector will be a critical part of a sustainable health care system. The Home Health Care Expo will give the public the opportunity to learn about services available in their communities,” said Jacqueline Redmond, CEO of the South East CCAC. “There are a number of excellent services available in the area but it can be a challenge to find them when you need help.” “With more than seven million Canadians caring for loved ones at home, family caregiving is increasingly a social issue with deep connection and dependence on government, business and the local community,” said Redmond. “Caregiving can be very rewarding but it can also cause emotional and financial worry. Knowing what is available is a first step to alleviating some of that worry. We are pleased to work with Caregiver Omnimedia and many of our partners to bring families the information they need to reduce the burden of aging. “Providing information about community resources is not new for the South East CCAC.

and pressuring up Lifestyle - “Hi Brian, Like so many that write to you, I too enjoy your column and advice on a wide range of topics. I have a 2010 Ford Taurus with 85,000 km. The kilometers are light duty and mostly highway. Rarely would there be more than 2 passengers or a few suitcases. As of this week I have replaced 3 of 4 wheel bearings. Front two bearings were done six months ago. Right rear bearing this week. These are not inexpensive repairs. The OEM tires and rims on the car are 18 inch, my question is do today’s larger tires add significant stress on bearings and are the Taurus’s bearing assemblies up for the job? Are there other factors that might contribute to bearing failure?” Phil In my experience, unlike many parts on autos, wheel bearings don’t tend to fail strictly because of mileage. The experience on this Taurus isn’t usual according to my local dealer service and parts department contacts. The question on wheel size affecting these failures is a good one. While 18” tires and rims are large, the wheels are usually constructed of a lighter weight alloy which offsets the size. So as weight isn’t a factor, the improved grip of larger rubber might be. Let me explain. Drivers quickly adapt their driving styles to the limits of the vehicle they are operating. No one wants to be unsafe or a discourteous driver, but lighter vehicles with powerful engines build on very responsive suspension and steering systems, tends to bring unforeseen consequences. Sometimes the tire grip is just too much for the car given a particular set of road and weather conditions. Most wheel/hub bearing assemblies fail from excess forces being applied to them. Lateral impacts on curbs, direct collisions with potholes, constant poundings from unpaved roads, and even aggressive cornering can lead to their demise. Alloy wheels can exacerbate these problems as they tend to seize on the hubs over the course of a few months of Canadian winters. Then when it comes time for the seasonal tire changeover, techs must often resort to hammering the rims off. A heavy hammer is also often employed when trying to remove brake rotors during routine maintenance. All this pounding can have a negative effect on wheel bearings. My advice is to always stick with a well-known brand name part with the longest warranty possible when replacing a hub/bearing. Ford recently changed the warranty on their replacement parts and most

are now covered for two years with no distance limitation. There are plenty of cheap offshore after-market brands, but they seldom deliver a life-span most consumers expect for the price. When having the tires removed for rotation or seasonal change, ask the tech to paint a coating of heat-proof lubricant on the hub where the wheel contacts it. This might also make a big difference if you have to change a flat on the side of the road. Of course, avoiding curb kisses and potholes and wash-outs is up to the driver. The Rubber Association of Canada recently revealed some surprising stats from a Leger poll of over 1,000 Canadian drivers completed in early April. With the automobile travel season at our doorstep it’s astounding that: - 69 per cent of drivers don’t check their tire inflation monthly, - 31 per cent think they only need to check their tire pressure when it appears tire pressure is low, - 45 per cent of motorists do not know where to find the correct inflation pressure for their vehicle, - 65 per cent do not know that tire pressures should only be measured when tires are cold. Other than the increased fuel consumption and shortened tire life to consider, the risk to road safety grows with each pound of air pressure lost. Underinflated tires can be a blow-out hazard waiting to happen, especially when rolling on a heavily loaded vehicle in warmer ambient temperatures. “These findings should be a wake-up call to Canadian motorists,” says Glenn Maidment, president of The Rubber Association of Canada, which represents tire makers. “Drivers can guarantee optimal tire performance, lower their fuel bills and protect the environment simply by learning a few tire inflation facts and measuring air pressures monthly to ensure their tires are inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended level.” If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@hotmail.com listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O.

John is also very proud that Buds is one of the few independently owned restaurants around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are more and more chains coming in,â&#x20AC;? he pointed out, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been independently owned for 24 years.â&#x20AC;? This longevity has helped to build Buds a reputation that brings people back time and time again. According to John, breakfast on their outdoor patio is especially popular. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We open at 7:30 in the morning, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon on a beautiful morning for us to arrive to open up and find customers waiting at the door to get in.â&#x20AC;? And who could blame them? Just step out onto the patio and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see for yourself that the view is unparalleled. The patio at Buds on the Bay is arguably the best spot in Brockville to sit and have a drink while you check out summer festivities like the Poker Run or the Annual Car Show, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a great place to enjoy the spring breezes or the fall sunshine. As popular as breakfast is at Buds, there is another reason to go this downtown eatery and that is for their steak

and seafood. We pride ourselves on our high quality Triple AAA beef and patrons wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be disappointed. Four very popular steaks are the Grilled Top Sirloin, the 10 oz. New York Striploin, and 8 oz. Steak Sandwich and the 12 oz. Ribeye. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am real pleased with the rise in our steak sales as we now average over 100 per week sold. With the quality of our food and the excellent service we provide, it shows we are on the right trackâ&#x20AC;? says Ackerman. Noting that they have a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;superb staffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Martha and John pride themselves on their service which they consider equally important as the quality of food they serve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the restaurant business looking after your guest is vital. These days itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer enough to sell the best steak or the best breakfast in the city. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customers need to feel appreciated, because if they are not they have other optionsâ&#x20AC;? said John. The downtown restaurant located at 17 Broad on the corner of Water Street, offers the best view of the Brockville waterfronts of any eatery in the city. The restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patio which seats 140 people in the summer overlooks the yacht basin in Tunnel Bay and the St. Lawrence beyond. Aside from offering a great dining experience, Buds on the Bay has the facilities to host group functions including business meetings or family functions. They have private meeting rooms that will seat up to 50 people with the same great menu choices available. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had bridal showers, baby showers, weddings and birthday parties hereâ&#x20AC;? says Martha Ackerman. Birth-

John and Jamie Capper toast Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return to Budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

days are always big at Budâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Celebrate on your birthday with three or more people and the birthday person eats free. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make a reservation for four or more and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll even supply the cakeâ&#x20AC;? said John Ackerman. Buds is open 7 days a week starting at 7:30 a.m. Resevations are recommended especially in the summer or on weekends. The full menu is available online at www. budsonthebay.com and take-out orders are available by calling 613-345-4341.

Playhouse opener Bedfull of Foreigners a bellyful of laughs Entertainment - Upper Canada Playhouse kicks off its 2014 summer season with A Bedfull of Foreigners - the kind of top notch, hilarious comedy the Morrisburg theatre is famous for and that keeps

more than 43,000 people filling the seats all year long. The classic comedy by Dave Freeman runs June 5-19 and is set in a hotel on the French/German border during a popu-

lar village festival weekend. What could possibly spoil such a promising vacation? True to form for a well-crafted comedy, just about everything. This season opener follows the misad-

ventures of Stanley and Brenda as they take the last room available in a run-down hotel, only to find they have to share it with total strangers. A double-booked hotel room is always fodder for hilarity and A Bedfull of Foreigners serves up plenty of it - complete with a host of madcap characters and a set that has a quirky personality all its own. When Brenda leaves to retrieve a lost ring, Stanley is left to deal with a series of events and bizarre characters that leave him literally running about in circles - getting trapped in a closet; lowering a strange lady out a window; being chased by an angry man with a lavatory chain; dealing with a scheming, inept hotel porter and a womanizing, incompetent manager; being seduced by a burlesque dancer and all the time horrified by the knowledge that his troubles have just begun! Audiences are in for a whirl-wind comic ride that only a great comedy and a dy-

namite cast can deliver. The Playhouse has assembled a team of veteran comic actors and audience favourites to bring this riotous comedy alive. Stanley is played by Jamie Williams who appeared in several past Playhouse shows including Bedtime Stories, Run For Your Wife, A Nice Family Gathering and most recently A Christmas Carol. Alison Lawrence is Brenda and was seen here in Wife Begins at Forty, SelfHelp and On Golden Pond to name a few. Marshall Button, locally and nationally known for his comic mill-worker Lucien, is Karak, the hotel porter. Button was also seen in countless Playhouse productions from The Honeymooners to Sadie Flynn Comes to Big Oak. Timm Hughes takes on the duties of hotel manager, Heinz, and was last seen in Hotbed Hotel, Dear Santa and Murder at the Howard Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s among others. Exotic dancer, Simone, is played by Debra Hale who delighted audiences in such past shows as The Amorous Ambassador, The Sensuous Senator and Perfect Wedding. Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unexpected room-mates are Claude, played by Shaun Clarke and Helga, by Kate Gordon. Both were seen last season-Clarke as the bank inspector in No Sex Please, Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re British and Gordon as the hotel receptionist in Whose Wives Are They Anyway. The set is designed by Sean Free and Donnie Bowes directs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be like old home week for this cast since theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked together off and on for years,â&#x20AC;? remarks Bowes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have my work cut out for me. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a handful for sure. Audiences had better buckle their seat belts!â&#x20AC;? Flex passes are on sale until June 5 and regular tickets available all year long. Contact The Playhouse for more information: 613-543-3713/ 1-877-550-3650 or www.uppercanadaplayhouse.com.

The counties slogan â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where lifestyle grows good businessâ&#x20AC;? is a main theme throughout, featuring up-close spotlights on local business combined with sweeping aerial footage of signature locations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having quality video is more important than ever if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to attract new business and investment,â&#x20AC;? Leeds Grenville Warden Ron Holman said. The main promotional video is approximately three minutes in length. Three shorter videos focus on the creative economy and investment attraction, new worker recruitment, and tourism attraction. The scripting expands on the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lower land and development costs, the accessibility to Canadian and U.S. markets, diversity and proud heritage, and for being a transportation and logistics hub in close proximity to Ottawa. The counties leedsgrenville.com website was launched in 2012 and includes four main sections: live, govern, visit and invest.

Robinson exhibits art throughout month of June Lifestyle - Throughout much of her life, Cyndy Robinson has explored many art media, and has fostered a true appreciation. A Brockville native, she is a graduate of the Graphic Design and Photography program from St. Lawrence College, as well as an Interactive Multimedia post graduate certificate from Algonquin College. The last two years of the SLC program focused heavily on photography and the traditional methods of processing images, from capture to print and presentation. After graduating, she continued to photograph using her “old school” tried and true Minolta SLR camera. The multimedia course introduced her to new creative software, developments and techniques. Upon discovering the realm of digital capture and manipulation, her creative world changed. A show and sale of photographic pieces by Robinson is on at the Brockville Arts Centre, June 1 t0 28, Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with sale on Wednesday, June 18 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. A simple handheld Canon model digital camera travelled with her throughout Europe, the Caribbean, New England and the St. Lawrence River corridor. Adobe Creative Suite products have lent a hand in helping her producing richer, more dynamic images. Last year, the lifelong

Quick loaf with crumble top makes great hostess gift Lifestyle - This moist and lightly sweetened quick loaf is fun to wrap up in pretty packaging - perfect as a hostess gift or to bring to a teacher or neighbour.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes Baking Time: 45 to 50 minutes Serves: 12 Ingredients · 2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour · 1/2 cup (125 mL) packed brown sugar · 2 tsp (10 mL) cinnamon · 1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) baking powder · 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each baking soda and salt · 1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground nutmeg · 1 Ontario Egg, beaten · 1 cup (250 mL) buttermilk · 1/3 cup (75 mL) butter, melted · 2 tsp (10 mL) vanilla · 1 cup (250 mL) diced apples (unpeeled) · 1/3 cup (75 mL) toasted chopped walnuts Crumble-Top · 1/4 cup (50 mL) each all-purpose

desire to purchase a Nikon DSLR was realized; thus, beginning a whole new level of learning. Recently, Robinson was presented the opportunity to sit for a critique of her work with world renowned photographer Richard Martin, and came away with great tips on reaching the next level of quality. “As Eye Sees It” highlights some of the pieces that reflect her unique perspective. You can explore her patterns in photography in this, her latest exhibit. On the heels of her “Bold Reflections” sports portrait in acrylic exhibition last June, she shows her appreciation for strong linear flow, movement and direction. Subjects are presented boldly by capturing the rhythm of architectural design and natural repetition. Recognizing the importance of dramatic lighting, the highly contrasted and purposeful collection spans several continents, several years and also features local focal points. Robinson also continues to practice professional graphic design and portrait painting in acrylics in her home studio, and is the manager of marketing and communications at the YMCA in Brockville. She is an avid arts supporter who is proud to represent area artists in the vice-chair seat for ACOTTI (Arts Council of the Thousand Islands).Visit the exhibition this June in beautiful downtown Brockville.

It shows how the new boy at the school, Vova, helps other students by fixing a broken cupboard, fixing a broken light and even offering his own phone to Karina after he damaged it. The film showed Vova’s caring nature. Local films were just as impressive. Roxmore Public School entered a short called Bullying. The video followed the trail of damage left by a female bully and her crew and how people around her stood up for her victim and told a principal. Vanier Public School created a fun video called Use Your Brains, which taught about perseverance. Teacher “Mr. Bob” gets electrocuted and turns into a zombie, eating the brain of one of his students and creating a female zombie. The students showed perseverance and created a vaccine, bringing Mr. Bob and the young girl back to their normal selves. A popular activity at the event was the stop-animation workshop conducted by Jason Sloan, a teacher at South Grenville District High School. Students created a variety of stop animation videos on iPads provided for the session including an interesting video about two girls connected as one called “Attached at the Hip.”

Annual Real to Reel Film Festival a success News – More than 320 students shared stories of character with their peers on recently during the eighth annual Real to Reel Film Festival. The festival, held at the Galaxy Cinemas in Brockville, brought together Grades 4-12 students from throughout the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) to screen 63 short, character-themed videos as well as to participate in workshops on improvisational drama, stop-action film techniques, GarageBand music software, video streaming and African drumming. “Students got to share their commitment to character as well as to share their drama and film-making talent,” said Terry Gardiner, UCDSB principal of continuous school improvement. “They offered helpful messages of character to improve the lives of those around them. I’m very proud of our students and what they contributed to this year’s film festival.” A highlight of the day was a screening of The New Guy, a film by Belarussian orphan Karina Sikdanova.

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

Things to consider while house hunting Lifestyle - It’s quite common to hear home owners say they knew within minutes of walking into a home if it was right for them. However, Ontario realtors want to remind prospective home buyers that more than a feeling needs to be considered before making an offer to buy a home. “While the first few minutes of a showing can be very telling, it’s very important to look beyond the features that match your criteria,” says Costa Poulopoulos, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA). “Location, number of bedrooms and washrooms, backyard size, kitchen style, etc. – these are some of the big ticket items on a home buyer’s checklist. There are a number of notso-obvious features home buyers should be looking for to help them decide if a home is right for them.”

Here is a list of some of the less obvious things home buyers should consider when viewing a prospective home: Immediate surroundings – Be sure to visit the home at various times of day to get a true sense of its surroundings. If you’re visiting a home on the weekend, you may not notice how much traffic runs through the neighbourhood on weekdays, or how noisy it can get due to the adjacent school. Neighbours – Residents are the window into a neighbourhood. Talk to them – they’ll be able to fill you in on things that may have an impact on your decision to either buy, or walk away, from a home. The view – If you’re considering a bungalow, but don’t have any plans to build a two-storey home, it’s wise to pay attention to any development happening in the neighbourhood. While

you might not have plans to build, the bungalow next to you might one day become a large new home that may affect the light in your home or your view. Remodelling challenges – Discuss your remodelling plans with the seller’s realtor. Don’t assume that you’ll be able to rearrange the kitchen in the home you’re considering. A wall, sink or counter may be where they are because of structural reasons, and you don’t want to be disappointed to learn that only after buying the house. The frills – Prepare a list of all the things that stand out as perks in the home you’re considering, and make note of how they might affect you financially. For instance, a big yard is lovely in the summer months, but maintaining it might cause a spike in your water bill.

The little things – Don’t be too quick to discount things that seem minor in comparison to your overall love of the home. For example, a detached garage may seem like a minor thing, but you may not think so in the winter months or when you have groceries to carry into your home. “Try to be as candid as possible with your realtor when drawing up your home wish list – if you’re both on the same page, you’ll be sure to find a home that meets most, if not all, of your needs and wants,” says Poulopoulos. More information is available at, www. wedothehomework.ca. This article is provided by local realtors and the Ontario Real Estate Association for the benefit of consumers in the real estate market.

A checklist for last-minute home showings owners need to be prepared for those unexpected requests for showings. “Outside of the scheduled open houses, prospective home buyers may request to see a home with only a half hour’s notice,” says Poulopoulos. “Home owners need to be prepared to open their door to these potential buyers at all times, even if that means abandoning a half-cooked meal at dinnertime.” For those unexpected showings, Poulopoulos offers these last minute tips: Sights – If you’ve done a good job at keeping your house clean while it’s been listed, then a last minute tidy-up job should be no problem.

Realty Inc. Brokerage 45 King Street West, Brockville

Make sure beds are made, fresh towels are laid out, the kitchen sink is free of dishes, closet doors are closed, dirty laundry is out of site, the toilet lids are down and valuables are locked away. Sounds – Be sure to turn off all televisions and turn on light music on a very low volume. This helps put home buyers at ease and helps them relax and enjoy their home tour. Smells – While selling your home, try to refrain from cooking strong smelling foods like fish or foods with a lot of garlic. Eliminate pet smells by cleaning your carpets and furniture before listing your home.

A last-minute freshen up job is simple to achieve by just opening up all the windows and doors and letting the fresh air into your home. It’s also a good idea to keep a lightsmelling air freshener on-hand. Finishing touches – Turn on all of the lights in your home, open all drapes and blinds to let in light, set the table and put out fresh flowers or fruit in a bowl.

Lifestyle - Preparing a home for sale is among the first things a realtor will recommend home owners do prior to listing their home. “Making sure your home is in tip top shape while up for sale is imperative,” says Costa Poulopoulos, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA). “A clean, staged and functioning home will ensure a home owner receives the best possible price for their home.” For best results, home owners should begin preparing their home for sale well in advance of putting it on the market. Once the bigger projects are out of the way, and the home is finally ready for showing, home

Ontario’s realtors pass the test half of the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO). 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 Es-

tate 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 consis-

tently 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 means that a realtor can help you find the home of your dreams or get the best price possible for the home you are selling.

Rideau District High School students experience PEI on exchange During the Ontario hosting portion of the exchange, Rideau students will visit the National War Museum and the Governor General’s House in Ottawa before enjoying a boat cruise of the Ottawa River. Local highlights include a pot-luck supper for all participating families, a tour of the Old Stone Mill in Delta and a canoe trip along the Rideau Canal during which students will experience two lock changes. In addition to visiting the Military Communications Museum and the International Hockey Hall of Fame in Kingston, students will be participating in the “Life in the Day of a Soldier” overnight program at Old Fort Henry where they will be working alongside of the Fort Henry Guard. The exchange program is coordinated by the Society for Educational Visits and Exchanges Canada and is supported in part by Heritage Canada.

News – Twenty-one students from Rideau District High School recently travelled 1,500 kilometers to visit the community of Morell, Prince Edward Island as part of an inter-provincial school exchange. Coordinated by Rideau staff members William Morris, Shannon Clair, and Judy Forrest, the eightday exchange provided students with an opportunity to travel to Morell by plane before embarking upon a five day educational tour. In addition to visiting Morell Regional Secondary School, students toured Cow’s Creamery, the East Point Light House, Anne of Green Gables Historic House, and Basin Head Beach before crossing the Confederation Bridge into New Brunswick. Students were also treated to a day tour of Charlottetown which included an historical walking tour of the downtown area with stops at Peake’s Quay and Founder’s Hall. Special recognition was given to the Rideau students by members of the Provincial Legislature during a visit to question period at Province House. And of course, the exchange would not have been complete without allowing the students to enjoy the flavours of oysters and lobsters.

Events - The Thousand Islands Writers Festival in partnership with Leeds County Books is hosting a book signing for local writers at the Saturday, May 24 Downtown Brockville Sidewalk Sale. Four local writers will be signing copies of their books and talking about their writing experiences from 10 a.m. until noon in front of Leeds County Books. They will be located under the awning at the corner of St. Andrew and King Streets. The authors participating are Gerry Brown, R.M. Doyon, Joe Martelle and James Prebble.

resent a nice cross-section of the variety of local books available.” “We are always eager to help local writers wherever and whenever we can,” added TIWF chair, Russ Disotell. “One of the reasons for the Writers Festival was the wealth of published writing talent in the area and our desire to help promote them and their works. This is the second year we have teamed with Leeds County Books on this event and last year’s was a great success. The writers enjoyed the chance to meet and mingle with the public.” The sidewalk sale represents a great opportunity to market and promote for local talent. Publishing is labour intensive for the average writer. So, whether you’re a reader, aspiring or published writer, or a local supporter, this is an opportunity to meet writers who are your neighbours and talk about books and the art of writing.

Events - The MyView Youth Film Festival has had a very successful second year and will be showcasing creative and insightful videos at this year’s Dandelion Festival in Kemptville on May 24. Youth ages 12-21 from across Leeds, Grenville and Lanark counties have worked hard to bring important issues to life through film. The use of humour, drama, and creative film techniques will delight audiences who come out to the festival. A panel of judges from different communities have selected the top 12 films in age categories 12-15, 16-18, and 19-21. The nominated films will be screened during the Dandelion Festival at the North Grenville Public Li-

brary on Saturday, May 24 with screenings beginning at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. The public is invited to view the films and vote for their favourite. Audience votes will be counted and combined with judges’ scores to determine the winners. The top films in each age category and the top overall film will be announced live on the main stage at the Dandelion Festival at 6 p.m. Saturday night. To view the nominated films or for more information on the festival, visit the MyView website, www.myviewfilmfest.ca or contact myview@kemptvilleyc.com.

Frankville church to close its doors By JOAN DAVIS DONALDSON

Events - The deconsecration of St. Thomas Anglican Church in Frankville is set for June 1 at 2:30 p.m. On June 19, 1859, Colonel Thomas and Amelia Newson donated a village lot on a beautiful grassy rise of land in the village of Frankville. A loan of $1,200 was finally obtained and a simple, modest stone building was completed by the end of 1860. The soaring spire and roof, clad in the first tin used in the township, gave the church a very noticeable elegance, shimmering brightly for all to see. As no rector was available to take over the mission, it was closed until Advent Sunday, Nov. 30, 1862. At this time a young Irish Clergyman, Rev. Thomas Bedford-Jones took over the mission. The building had enormous debt, so with much thought and foresight, the rector used every form available through canvasses, various events, subscriptions as far away as Britain. Finally he asked each parishioner to give the value of one month’s butter for a special offering. Hence, “The

church that butter built” was a phrase used to describe the church’s beginnings. In place of clear glass, a gorgeous stained glass memorial window was given in 1930; reaching from the altar to the ceiling, it is said that the window is one of the finest in Leeds County. Over the years, the members of the congregation of the church worked tirelessly to keep St. Thomas growing and flourishing. One of the numerous events was a series of pancake breakfasts held each spring starting 36 years ago and continuing to the present time. As we near the close of the church, through all the changes and challenges; St. Thomas, named after Thomas the doubting apostle, has endured these 155 years thanks to the many rectors and their families and the hard work, faithfulness and dedication of past generations and the parishioners of today. Although the doors of this simple stone church are now closed, we at St. Thomas will always envision them “wide open” ready to welcome all inside.

For All Your Home Improvement Needs Inside & Out

Restoring your property after a long winter One of the best things about the dawn of spring and the return of warmer weather is the chance to get out of the house and get some fresh air. For homeowners, this is the perfect opportunity to assess any damage the previous months did to yards and develop a plan restore properties. * Don’t jump the gun. The first warm day of spring might seem like a great time get out in the yard and get your hands dirty. But it’s best to wait until the grass has completely dried out before getting to work. Raking on wet grass increases the risk of tearing out grass, which can cause bald spots and the growth of weeds down the road. In addition, stepping on the grass while the ground is still wet can compact the soil, which can slow drainage and block the lawn’s roots from breathing. Patience should prevail with regard to mowing the lawn as well. A lawn’s roots will not start to grow until the average everyday temperature routinely reaches 40 F, so mowing too early is both unnecessary and potentially harmful to the lawn. When the temperatures regularly reach 50 F, then homeowners will likely start to see their lawns growing. * Remove debris that’s piled up. Debris has a tendency to infest a yard over the course of the winter months. Fallen branches, stones and even trash can accumulate in a yard, putting those who spend time in the yard at risk of injury once the warm weather returns. For instance, bits of twigs and pebbles that are blown across the yard during a windy winter can be embedded in the yard, making the yard less of a haven

months, aerate in the spring to loosen the soil and make it easier for the lawn to withstand the months ahead. No matter how harsh the winter months might have been, spring is a great time for homeowners to restore the property around their homes. SH122751E

Fertilizing a lawn is a springtime tradition for many homeowners. Winter can take its toll on a lawn, but fertilizer can go a long way toward helping a lawn recover from harsh weather.. * Find out what your lawn needs. Even novice green thumbers likely know that overfertilization can harm a lawn, and that’s a big reason many homeowners approach fertilizing their lawn with some trepidation. A lush lawn adds to the curb appeal of a home, while a lawn that’s patchy or appears to be poorly taken care of can lower property value. Before fertilizing a lawn, homeowners should determine the needs of their lawns. A soil test can determine if the lawn has any nutrient deficiencies. * Don’t overdo it with nitrogen. Fertilizing with too much nitrogen is a common mistake, as too much nitrogen can be harmful, decreasing root growth and increasing a lawn’s susceptibility to disease. A slow-release fertilizer may be an option, R0012647847_0417

and more of a hazard. Once the grass is dry enough to walk on, walk around the property and remove any debris that’s piled up over the last few months. * Employ a pre-emergent weed killer. Homeowners who routinely spend their summers agonizing over weeds throughout the yard should consider applying a pre-emergent weed killer around the beginning of spring. It’s important to do so around the end of March or early April, when the weeds have not yet had a chance to grow. When applying, follow the dosage instructions provided by the product’s manufacturer. Such instructions often recommend a second application right before summer begins. * Remove thatch. Once the grass has dried, you can begin to remove thatch that’s built up over the winter. Thatch is potentially very harmful to soil, blocking sunlight, air and moisture the soil needs to ensure a lawn looks lush and healthy. Thatch removal does not necessarily need to be an annual task. If thatch buildup is insignificant, then it can be done every other year. Just use a dethatching rake to make the job much easier. * Aerate, particularly if the yard is a heavy traffic area once the warm weather arrives. If your yard transforms into a child’s wonderland upon the arrival of spring and summer, you might want to revive the soil by aerating. When the yard gets heavy usage, it’s easy for soil to become compacted, which makes it hard for air and water to reach the lawn’s roots. That can eventually make for a less-than-appealing lawn. So if your yard is the place to be come the warmer

as such fertilizers break down nutrients over a longer period of time, which also allows homeowners to extend the intervals between fertilizing sessions. But a lawn can get nitrogen from other sources as well. Such sources include grass clippings or raked leaves left on the lawn after being shredded by a mulching mower. * Plan to fertilize several times. Some homeowners only fertilize twice a year, once in the spring and then once again in the fall. But fertilizer should be applied multiple times throughout the year, beginning in the early spring. The first time to fertilize is when the soil temperature reaches roughly 55 F, which is often evident because grass typically starts to grow again when the soil reaches that temperature. Fertilize again roughly a month after fertilizer is first applied, and then do so every six to eight weeks after through October. Professionals often recommend using an organic material during the third fertilizing session. GT144052

Volunteerism recognized by Gananoque Rotary By JAN MURRAY

News - Volunteerism was a special highlight of a recent Rotary meeting in Gananoque. A special Rotary International Evening meeting was held May 13 at the Royal Canadian Legion in Gananoque. A number of people were honoured with Paul Harris Awards and guest speaker Bruce Higgs presented an hour long slide show of the Rotary projects in El Salvador, Panama, Guatemala, Ghana and Nepal. Paul Harris founded Rotary in 1905. Each year, this worldwide award is given to a number of outstanding Rotarians or members from within the community. Last Tuesday evening there were six recipients; Linda Garrah, John MacLeod, Ann Bickerton, Dorothy Hicks, Joanne Lancaster and Doug Bickerton. Don Matthews introduced Garrah to the room, listing her numerous accomplishments including but not limited to her current role as chairperson for the Thousand Islands Playhouse. “She has served on several committees, capital campaigns as well as social and fundraising events.” “She served on the library board, the waterfront development committee, is a founding member of Christmas for Kids, initiated Linklater backpack program and volunteers with Canadian guide dog program and the blind puppy program.” Garrah is also a member and chair of the planning advisory committee for the town and member of the Lower Town Steering committee and is deeply involved in working with the town planning coordinator and has been on the advisory committee for some time. As a member of Christ Church, she has been a warden, secretary and on the fundraising committee. She is also a volunteer with the Cancer Society. Garrah accepted the award with great pride. “Truly I thought Rotarians got this award, so I am absolutely flabbergasted and I could not be more honoured. First of all because the Rotary Club does an amazing amount of good, not just in Gananoque but throughout the world and I am honoured that they have chosen to recognize what little bit I do in the town of Gananoque.” “I am also honoured because this is happening in the Legion and the Legion is dear to my heart. It does an amazing amount of work in the town of Gananoque and we are fortunate to have them here.” Doug Bickerton of Bickerton Brokers proudly presented the next award to MacLeod. “John is a long time resident of Gananoque. I’ve known him for many years; he taught our kids. John retired after 32 years in the science department as the head of the science department at GSS.” “John took on two major projects, first was called the Global Lab and the second was working with the students to create Osprey Platforms.” MacLeod also received the Prime Ministers Award for teaching. He has been a long time member (as well as a director) of the Lions Club of Gananoque. For 10 years after he retired, he was on the board of TVO and was responsible for bringing children’s programming to Gananoque including Polkaroo. He’s accredited with being a prime mover in the watershed which eventually became the Frontenac Archbiosphere Reserve, which has been recognized by National Geographic. He is one of the four original members of the Gananoque Trail committee, responsible for achiev-

For many years he took care of the Landon Bay Environmental Centre. Currently he is involved in the Joel Stone Park improvements and the placing of the Canadian Flag at the Harbour entrance. Just last week, he was awarded the Lions Helen Keller Award. “Many thanks. I am flabbergasted also. I must say one good thing about volunteering is its fun. There is a lot of cooperation from your fellow club members,” MacLeod said. “It’s a privilege to work on things like this. Many thanks.” Emily Bell presented the Paul Harris Award to Ann Bickerton. “Ann has been active in Christ Church for 42 years, serving on the alter guild and as the chair for the past 20 years. An active member of the Anglican Church Women’s Group; a long standing member of the Beta Sigma Pi sorority in Gananoque and served on the committee as president.” Ann is also a driver for the cancer society, a member of the Linklater Public School breakfast program, co-coordinator of the Gananoque Heart & Stroke Canvas program, co-coordinator for the MS Carnation Sales campaign and a constant contributor for Rotary activities. She has hosted a variety of exchange students and made thousands of cookies and sandwiches. She volunteers at Ribfest and has hosted countless cottage parties for the Rotarians and exchange students. “Needless to say, I am overwhelmed, and I am not usually at a loss for words,” Ann began. “I do thank you very much. It sure sounds like a lot when you rattle it off all at once, but when you do it one thing at a time it doesn’t seem like it’s so much. It’s been a joy and I’ve met so many wonderful volunteers over the years and I just hope I can keep on going for a few more.” Presenting to another Rotarians wife, Bell introduced recipient Hicks. “Dorothy has been a constant and tireless partner with her husband Bruce on all rotary projects that they have taken care of over the past 30 years all around the world. Dorothy is the facilitator taking care of application forms, all the computer work and organizing for international nights and international projects. Her husband Bruce says that Doro-

thy makes him look good,” she said. “Dorothy has hosted exchange students from India for the Kingston Cataraqui club, and has organized and run the Eldon craft fair for many years and split the proceeds between the Rotary club of Gananoque and her Kingston Collegiate Vocational school charity. Howard and I were involved heavily and have fond memories of going up and having a lot of fun.” Hicks has participated in Rotary International activities, travelling to international conferences in Chicago, Miami, as well as on Rotary missions to Panama, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras. The fifth Paul Harris Award went to Lancaster. Retired in 2001, Lancaster worked at the Salvation Army for 13 years. She was the co-coordinator of the Christmas Kettle campaign, worked the Salvation Army store, the Salvation Army Café and is currently the president of the Gananoque Food Bank. “She volunteers at the Humane Society, the Lyndhurst Turkey Fair, the Lansdowne Fair and the Playhouse and is president elect for Rotary,” Susan

Tulk, Rotary president added. The sixth and final award for the evening went to Doug Bickerton, presented by Gwen Hundrieser. “Rotary Foundation asked me to give you the Paul Harris pin with three Sapphire stones. This signifies outstanding support of the Rotary Foundation, presented with recognition of all the support you give,” Hundrieser said. Following the presentations, Bell introduced Bruce Higgs who would give a one hour presentation on some of the projects the Rotarians have been involved in. In her introduction she repeated some famous quotes as printed on the back cover of a recent community flyer. “It reads, find a lesson in every failure and you will never fail. The last one in particular applies to our speaker,” motioning toward Higgs, she continued, “The world is waiting for you to heal it.” Bell explained how grateful she is to Higgs, who has been an active member for 30 years, for nominating her to become a Rotarian. “Women are active in

Rotary now. Not so much 26 years ago when Bruce nominated me.” She sent the room into an uproar of laughter when she continued, “Bruce embraced women into Rotary.” It was 22 years ago when Higgs took his first trip to Panama, continuing to go back repeatedly and working in the international field. Bell continued, “He has always been involved in Rotary, but when he linked up with international, that was his baby.” Higgs is past chair of World Community Service at the district level and is presently global grand official at that level as well. “These projects, done by the Rotary Club of Gananoque, were made possible through your donations and support,” Higgs explained. He introduced those in the room who have previously taken part on one of their trips to Central America and then in his first slide showed the very proud, latest group of 16. One of the first projects the Rotarians had visited was Talnique. A few years back a hurricane had wiped out the entire village and the people there were desperately trying to rebuild. The were living in houses they had made of mud and sticks. They also had only one water source which required every person in the village to carry water in buckets, (usually on their heads) 1,500 feet uphill for three to four hours at a time, at least three times per week. Thanks to Rotary, this little village no longer has to carry their water up the hill. Thanks to the sponsorship of a number of Rotary clubs in the area, a $55,000 project has been put in place which allows water to flow. The water goes through a filter and then into a big tank. It is connected to a pump house with a submersible pump. The Rotary Club of Keene New Hampshire comes in and puts up eight houses per year for them. Higgs also showed pictures of the rainwater harvesting and plastic pond project that they are spearheading in Napal.

The Assault Response & Care Centre, a program of the Brockville General Hospital offers free, confidential services to women, children, and men who have been victims of or affected by sexual assault and or domestic violence. The centre provides 24/7 specialized nursing care through the Brockville General Hospital emergency department, counselling, and public education initiatives in schools and throughout the community. The goal is the prevention of violence in the community. Have you been a victim of sexual violence? Remember that it is never your fault. You’re not alone. Tell someone you trust. Help is available. The team at Assault Response & Care Centre would like to remind the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville that they are there to help. The service can be accessed directly by calling 613-3453881 or 1-800-567-7415. For more information about the services the public is invited to a display table at the Brockville General Hospital outside the cafeteria during the week of May 18-24.

News - In Canada, May is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Sexual abuse and sexualized violence in our communities is far more common than most people think. Between one in three women and one in six men experience sexual abuse in their lifetime. Most victims of sexual assault are under the age of 25. Most know the person who attacked them and do not report the crime to the police. Victims of sexual assault are some of the most vulnerable and silent people in society. One of the biggest hurdles that women, children and men face after experiencing a sexual assault is the insidious notion that somehow they “asked for it” by what they were wearing, where they were, what they were drinking, or whom they kept company with. This is victim-blaming. No doubt, this impacts many people’s decision to suffer in silence after experiencing an assault. To encourage ending victim blaming, the Assault Response & Care Centre (ARCC) has been running the No One Asks For It social media campaign. This campaign sends the message that victim blaming only perpetuates violence but also a cycle of blame and shame. It also silences its victim. Earlier this month, on May 2, the community was asked to wear purple to support the initiative and stand in solidarity against victim blaming. While the dangers of social media for individu-

2015 Nissan Micra: Good things really do come in small packages Lifestyle - The vehicles I road-test for these reviews (yes it’s a tough job, but I’m willing to make sacrifices) come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian head offices of the manufacturers and local dealerships. I prefer to use dealership units whenever possible because they more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higher-end models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out the manufacturers’ websites or better yet, call your local dealership and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. It’s the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The 2015 Nissan Micra I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at Smiths Falls Nissan. Nissan has fired a major shot across the bows of their competitors with the introduction of a sub $10K vehicle and from a first drive aspect; it looks like they’ve gotten things right. The 2015 Micra is setting some new rules in this game and consumers are destined to be the winners. While the Micra is aptly named a global car by Nissan (it’s being sold in 160 countries), it will not be offered for sale in the U.S. “It’s very rare to offer a car in Canada that is not also offered in the United States and with Micra, Nissan will be the only mainstream automotive brand to bring a high volume car specifically for the Canadian market,” said Christian Meunier, president of Nissan Canada. “There has been extensive support from the global leadership team to make this happen, recognizing the potential of the Nissan brand within Canada, and the importance of bringing cars that will resonate with Canadian consumers.” If it hasn’t already been drilled into your head from preliminary advertising, the Micra starts out the price journey at $9,998 for the entry level version with a 1.6 L DOHC 4-cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The power-plant is equipped with dual fuel injection and variable valve timing and puts out 109 hp. My tester from Smiths Falls Nissan was the SV version with an automatic transmission priced at $13,698 (all prices before destination fees, taxes, and any current incentives). The top dog in the Micra clan; the SR comes in at $15,748. My SV level was impressively equipped with power windows/locks, cruise control,

air-conditioning, remote keyless entry, rear wiper, rearview camera, cell-phone hands-free system, 6-way driver seat, steering wheel controls, audio with auxiliary inputs, and a block heater, (yes it was made for Canada). While this is a subcompact, interior room is comfortable with higher-thanexpected seating providing leg comfort for longer journeys. Even the rear seat, which is usually reserved for smaller adults and children, can easily fit average sized adults without cramping. A tall roof line which doesn’t drop to the rear protects head-room for rear passengers. Wide opening doors mean easy entry and exit and the hatchback lift-gate has a suitably low lift-over height for easy cargo loading. Large windshield and door glass surfaces give a great view outwards and help to alleviate the impression of being in a sub-compact. And surprise; the rear door windows actually go all the way down! Cup-holders and storage pockets abound in the Micra, but don’t expect consol armrests or storage bins. On the road, the Micra is surprisingly peppy and the longer-than-average wheelbase for this segment, allows for a solid and smooth ride as well as more interior space. Its exterior aerodynamics minimizes the effects of cross-shear winds and keep things quieter than you’d expect for a car of this price. The

2015 Nissan Micra

109 hp engine output allowed the Nissan team to use a final-drive gear ratio that keeps the engine from revving high at highway speeds and leaves some reserve power for passing and lane merges. Even the use of A/C doesn’t cause a hunt-and-surge engine speed syndrome that plagues a lot of small displacement engines. In-town manoeuvring is a breeze thanks to the Micra’s overall size, good sight-lines and an electric powersteering system. While this vehicle is aimed squarely at urban commuters, it is quite capable of longer treks without passenger discomfort. The reasoning behind a dual fuel injection system (2 injectors per cylinder) was to provide a 57 per cent finer fuel spray for improved mileage without sacrificing performance. NRCan ratings for the Micra automatic are 8.8 L/100 km city and 6.6 L/100 km highway (32 mpg and 43 mpg respectively). As this vehicle is not for sale the U.S., there are no EPA ratings available. The 41 L fuel tank should provide a mixed driving range of just over 450 km and cost about $47 to fill at $1.33/L. On the maintenance side of the coin, the Micra promises to be just as cheap. The P185/60R15 tires on my tester are available from a very wide selection of makers with many in the $100-$175 price range. Front brake pads and rotors will set you back $92 and $97 respectively, an air filter costs $22, and a dealer oil change runs around $40 (no synthetic oil required). For a great commuter car that can serve a variety of tasks well at an outstanding price the Nissan Micra is well worth a look and a test-drive. Yours in service, Brian Turner

On Monday, May 12, Prince of Wales student, 12 year old Calvin Hache, son of Glen Hache couldn’t believe that he had won a bicycle for his entry of Cat Bug, Serve and Protest, as Constable and incoming Safety Officer Mark Heffernan congratulated him, top left. To celebrate Brockville Police Week, school students were involved in the interpretation of what police Sergeant and Safety Officer Doug Locke could use to help make his job easier and to provide the community with a safer environment to live. Using the theme of Cruisers and Critters, many entries were submitted which can be seen at the YES Gallery, in the 1000 Islands Mall. The two elementary winning entries were Hache and Cassidy Clarke, of Westminster Public School, top right. Each went home with a brand new bicycle, a Cruisers and Critters Certificate and a gift card from Tim Hortons.

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

with a medal and certificate by Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada. Recipients had the opportunity to identify an eligible not-for-profit organization to receive a grant for $5,000 (regional award) or $10,000 (national award). Businesses contribute to their communities in many ways. In 2010, over half of employees who volunteered said that they had received support to do so from their employer. Almost half of all Canadians (47 per cent) volunteer their time, energy and skills to benefit their communities, with the replacement value of their work estimated to be around $14 billion, or the equivalent of nearly 1.1 million fulltime jobs. Volunteers are crucial to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not-for-profit sector, which includes 161,000 registered charities and not-forprofit organizations.

The Brockville Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ball Hockey League kicked off its inaugural season last week. More than 100 players have signed up on six teams. The registrants vary in experience from little to

some advanced players. The league has had a successful start to the season, and organizers thank the community for their support to get this going.

Sports - Yes we all know by now that it was a long cold winter and our golf season has been in full swing for three weeks or so. Have you had golf swing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fundamentals Check Upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; yet? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your golf swingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spring tune up or check up if you will. So how would an area golfer go about getting their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fundamentals Check Upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? The beginning of the season is usually the most ideal time to get this done and not waiting until things go wrong. The smart thing to do is seek out the services of a teaching professional or a trained eye that you trust. What would you have checked out? Well letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look at it this way, the great Jack Nicklaus did this before the start of every season. He would always meet up with his long time teacher Jack Grout and he would check out Nicklausâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fundamentals. If it is good enough for the greatest golfer ever, it should be good enough for you. Unfortunately most of you golfers out there try to figure things out on their own. Howâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that working out for you? So for starters letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s check out your set-up; grip, stance, posture and alignment. Alignment is almost always ignored by the average golfer. Go to any driving range and check out how many ball whackers are using alignment aids. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bet you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find too many. Sure the grip and your stance are important, but an often overlooked fundamental is posture. Posture is a key to good ball striking, if you can maintain your posture throughout your swing you pretty much guarantee yourself a good chance of hitting a good golf shot. Next we move on to the takeaway and the backswing fundamentals. Are you on plane? Do you over use your hands when you begin to take the club away? Are you in the right posi-

tion at the top of your swing? From the top of the backswing itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to look at the transition of your swing. Is it to jerky or is it smooth? Then as you move into the ball, is your weight moving to your front foot or are you hanging back on your back foot? If you happen to hang back on your back foot as you approach the ball you will end up being a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Chiropractors Dreamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Do you hit the ball solidly or do you happen to hit a little behind the ball causing you to hit fat and thin shots? Anyways as you swing into your finish or follow through are you accelerating through the hitting area? If you get to your finish and can hold that position for a few seconds, this will indicate that you have accelerated through the hitting area. To me this is the one fundamental I would strongly encourage you golfers out there to concentrate on, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hold Your Finishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. So in the end itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all up to you as to what type of golf season you want to have. Get your â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fundamentals Check Upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and you will most likely be well on your way to having a pretty good golf season. The choice is yours. J.R. Ryan, CGTF Level Three Teaching Professional, teaches exclusively at the Tincap Golf Course. You can reach JR at 613-345-1390 or e-mail at jrryan@bell.net.
