EMC Entertainment - Holding their trophies, Mitchell Clark (second from right) and Jaynel White (centre) chat with host Bruce Wylie (right) after they danced their way to the championship of the Volunteer Centre of St. Lawrence-Rideau Dancing with the Stars 2013. Their dance routine was choreographed by Bread of Life Dance Theatre instructor Karen MacNaull (left). MacNaull indicated that the sequence of moves told a story of success with wanting more. Dancing with the Stars took place May 24, at Thousand Islands Secondary School (TISS) in Brockville. This year’s judges were Brenda Clarke, Sharon Jordan, Daniel De Luis and Phil Deery.

EMC Events – Spencerville will be a hot bed of talent June 14 and 15 during the annual Eastern Ontario Firefighters Convention and Competition. The Edwardsburgh/Cardinal Fire Department is hosting the event with the main attraction being the firefighter competitions, 9 a.m. to roughly 3 p.m. beside the arena in Spencerville, Saturday, June 15. Dry races will take place in the morning. The day will also include hose coupling competitions, ladder races, putting bunker gear on, then wet races with fire hoses. For example replacing hoses, knocking targets and a bucket brigade. The weekend will see 10 fire department teams compete – Iroquois, Mississippi Mills, Car-

leton Place, Beckwith, Mountain and Winchester, Athens, Prescott, Augusta, and of course Edwardsburgh/Cardinal. Once the games have come to an end, a Woodland’s chicken barbecue will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. (tickets to the barbecue dinner, which will also be served at the arena, will be $15 each). The dinner will be followed by a parade at 7 p.m., explains Brian Purcell, chair of the planning committee and member of the fire department in Edwardsburgh/Cardinal. Trophy presentations will take place after the parade, followed by a dance beginning around 8:30 or 9 p.m. Entertainment will be provided by Daisy Train, an 80s tribute band. In between, a DJ will ensure the music doesn’t stop. See GAMES page 2

RELAY FOR LIFE

EMC Events - It’s not often that a CBC radio documentary producer comes to this area. Saturday, June 15 at 7 p.m., journalist and author, John Chipman, producer of many documentaries for CBC Radio’s “The Sunday Edition�, will be speaking at the Rockport Recreation Hall. Admission to this fundraiser is $8. Light refreshments will be served. This event will be a two-topic presentation. Chipman will share the drama of the inside story of the 1971 Kingston Penitentiary riot that turned out to be a turning point for prison reform in this country. This is a timely topic, as the federal government is currently moving toward closing the Kingston Penitentiary. The second topic is the very personal story of a military chaplain struggling with PTSD (Post

TIME FOR A SPRING CLEAN UP

Traumatic Stress Disorder) after a difficult tour with Canada’s troops in Afghanistan. PTSD is not something usually associated with clergy. Chipman’s work has taken him across Canada, to Eastern Europe, the Balkans and the Middle East. He has worked, written, and edited for the National Post, the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star. He also coproduced a Gemini-award-winning television documentary for The Fifth Estate, has done numerous radio documentaries and special features for The Current, Metro Morning, and The Sunday Edition. He is the author of “The Obsession: Tragedy in the North Atlantic� and is currently working on a second book that examines the wrongful accusations, convictions and victims of disgraced pathologist Charles Smith.

Tall Ships Festival now has its own theme song EMC Entertainment: Editor’s note: The following lyrics have been provided by Darlene Burns: Tall Ships (shout “TALL SHIPS!â€?), they are coming to Brockville; Coming to Brockville, in June Twenty-Thirteen. Tall Ships (shout “TALL SHIPS!â€?), they are coming to Brockville; Coming to Brockville, the greatest sight you’ve ever seen. Up the St. Lawrence, tall ship sails will come, To our little town so pretty; And adorn our shoreline, masts high in the sky; From Centeen to Hardy Park, their flags they will fly. [CHORUS] It’s called the Tour of EighteenTwelve, reflecting wars and battles; Those times were major parts of history; With ornate wood and sails so fine, the pictures we’ll be taking; We’ll host and entertain the crews so in their glory be. [CHORUS] With all due respect we give, in mem’ry of the BOUNTY, Her last and fatal sail in TwentyTwelve; The Captain and his mate Claudene gave way to the raging ocean; Their caring souls they will live on, the angels heard their cry; So let’s enjoy the time we have, and share our Love and Laughter; We never know when the time may come we’ll join the ever-after. [CHORUS] So “HOIST THOSE SAILS!â€? “CAST THOSE LINES!â€? we’ll sail in the clear blue waters; Catching mists and rolling waves, we can join our sons and daughters; REMOVE THOSE FROWNS; ENJOY THE LIFE; the good Lord gave us all; Love your partner, friend and foe‌ you’re bound to have a ball! [Chorus]x2 ‌THE GREATEST SIGHT YOU’VE EVER SEEN‌ !!! [Shout “TALL SHIPS!â€?].

To get into the dance the cost is $10. Tickets are currently on sale. There are 450 tickets up for grabs and they can be purchased by contacting James Purcell Insurance in Spencerville, 613-658-3123, or at the township office 613-658-3055. Before the main day of activities, however, fire teams will be coming into town for Friday, June 14, when they will start camping. That evening they will take part in a convention meeting, a social and fireworks later on that night. This year’s event is the 101st annual and Spencerville is excited to be the hub of activities. The event has been hosted in Spencerville in the past. Next year’s 2014 edition is set to take place in Mississippi Mills – hosted in Pakenham. Organizers locally have been “planning a year in advance,� for the event, Purcell noted. Funds raised that weekend will stay local – going towards mechanical repairs and needed body work on the fire department’s 1951 original pumper which is currently stationed at the Spencerville Fire Hall. For further information on the weekend’s events or to purchase tickets, please call the numbers listed above.

The little girl, as mentioned, was diagnosed when she was just over a year old. When she was just starting to walk, her parents noticed her legs were falling behind her. Taking her to the doctor, they found out her chest was very full. She had a tumour in her back behind her heart and lungs. She is now cancer free, and is monitored regularly to ensure the cancer stays away. Team Princess Lillian has so far raised between $8,000 to $10,000 for

the cause, during their three years of participation. This year, so far, the team has raised almost $1,000. Their team consists of family and friends. “A lot of them went through what we went through with us,” Jodie explained. She thanks her team very much for their support and help. Jodie’s aunt also passed away from cancer, and the mother of a good friend is dealing with the disease right now.

EMC News - Lillian White just turned seven last week. She has been cancer free now, for four years. Diagnosed with neuroblastoma when she was just 14 months old, Lillian is a bright and happy young lady. She is joining her mother Jodie in fundraising for the upcoming Relay for Life in Brockville, being held at the Rows Corner Fairground, June 14. The relay begins at 7 p.m. and runs to 7 a.m. Lillian’s team, Team Princess Lillian, has taken part for three years, this being the fourth. They are hard at work preparing and planning for their next fundraising event, June 2 at Walmart in Brockville. Beginning at 9 a.m., Lillian and her team will be on hand selling cupcakes and lemonade. Candy kebobs and other treats will be for sale as well. Her 13-member team will also be holding a ladies night. They have already featured other cupcake stands and have a bike raffle in the works. The raffle – tickets are $2 each or three for $5 – is for a unisex bike. The bike has a 16-inch frame and is a 21 speed, donated by Canadian Tire in Brockville. Tickets may be purchased at Walmart, June 2. The draw will take place at the Relay for Life event. Jodie and her husband Greg feel it’s important to give back to the community and the cause – just as the community pulled together for them when Lillian was diagnosed. The Canadian Cancer Society also helped them in many ways while the family was dealing with Lil-

In fact, Jodie is participating on her friend’s team in the Kingston Relay for Life event as well. The night of the relay, she describes as “emotionally touching,” and draining in a way, but so “inspiring”. This year’s eighth annual event in Brockville, as mentioned, begins June 14, 7 p.m. Last year’s Relay, according to an earlier press release from the Canadian Cancer Society, raised more than $156,000, with 472 participants. Funds raised go to the Canadian Cancer Society for research and support for those who are living with cancer, their caregivers, family and friends. According to the release, “The money raised at last year’s Relay for Life helped the Canadian Cancer Society volunteer drivers transport 386 clients to and from their cancer treatments in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville in 2012. The Canadian Cancer Society’s transportation program is just one of the local services provided by the Society.” “The Relay for Life in Brockville is not just another fundraiser but it is a celebration of the lives that have been saved,” said Heather Jones, event chair, in a press release. “We want people to come and help us cheer on cancer survivors as they walk the Survivors’ Victory Lap - the first lap of Relay.” Also taking place that evening is a Luminary Ceremony, during which hundreds of candles will be lit around twilight. This is to honour loved ones and motivates those walking around the track. For further information visit relayforlife.ca/brockville.

being joined by Tom Kirkby and Larry Newton. The popular group played a wide range of engagements finally calling it quits in 1975. One of the highlights for the band was playing back up for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, which had a million seller with the remake of the song, Last Kiss. The Graduates played two reunion dances in 1982 packing the Brockville Rowing Club and The Royal Canadian Legion Hall with more than 350 people. It was the last dance for the group. Drummer Larry Newton died three months later. The Graduates reunited once again for The Hilltop Reunion in 1988. For this reunion, the group consisted of the original members Barry Greene, Reggie Rice, and Pat MacKay. Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Scott Greene filled in for Reg Countryman. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for Scott to play with dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original band. Sue Baker Sue Baker was born in Orillia, Ontario and shortly thereafter moved to the 1000 Islands Region. Her jazz inspiration was sparked early on by her parents, Alan and Mary, both long-time jazz and swing enthusiasts. Sueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first singing gig dates back to the age of six in her Grade 2 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Show and Tellâ&#x20AC;?. From that point forward her love for singing could be witnessed through her strong vocal performances in school musicals and in both the high school concert and stage bands. During this period she also took up guitar lessons and began songwriting. Her achievements include touring across Canada with a Toronto based cover band and collaborating on an album of original songs entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;On the Roxâ&#x20AC;?. The album was a clear indication that her riveting vocal style could seamlessly cross over into any genre, which she later proved again as lead vocalist for AGB (the eclectic All Girl Band) and in the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entertainment group, H & S Express. Bringing her back to her true roots, however, was a two-year singing engagement with the Brian Downey Jazz band. Her sultry delivery of ageless classics and energetic performances earned her a dedicated fan base. Much to their delight, this blossomed into regular, intimate jazz evenings at the Grindstone Tapas Lounge. Sue will be performing at the Grindstone Tapas Lounge as one of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free jazz festival concerts. She will be joined by Alan Ogborne on keyboards, Doug Dillon on bass and Roger Wooller on drums. Tickets for Diane Panton are $35 plus HST (students under 18 are $10 plus HST). For Barry Greene tickets are $15 plus HST, Cadence $27 plus HST, Apex Jazz Band $25 plus HST. Ticket are being sold through the Brockville Arts Centre.

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The 13th annual 2013 1000 Islands Jazz & Blues Festival takes place from Saturday, June 15 to Saturday, June 22 inclusive. Many big names are on the schedule for this annual event. All tickets (except for the two free concerts) are available at the Brockville Arts Centre (BAC). Diana Panton with Guido Basso, Reg Schwager and Don Thompson play at the BAC June 15, 7:30 p.m. Also a little earlier that day, River City Junction will be playing at the Brockville Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market, Market Square at the Waterfront, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 18 at 7:30 p.m. Barry Greene will be playing jazz/blues at Boboli Bistro, 32 King St. W., Brockville. The following day Cadence plays The Green Door Bed and Breakfast, 61 Buell St., Brockville at 7:30 p.m. The Apex Jazz Band hits the Brockville Legion, June 20 at 7:30 p.m. and Sue Baker will be appearing at the Grindstone Tapas Lounge, 123 Water St., Brockville June 22, 7:30 p.m. More about the artists River City Junction Come out and enjoy this free outdoor event with power trio River City Junction, live at the Brockville Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market on Saturday, June 15 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. River City Junction is a Canadian blues-rock power trio steeped long in the tradition of blues and classic rock. A rich blend of old school Chicago Blues, Funk, Motown and Classic Rock, their music forms a very potent sonic cocktail that is raw, organic and uplifting. Headlining the 1000 Islands Jazz & Blues Festival, Diana Panton is joined by Guido Basso, Reg Schwager and Don Thompson. Whenever vocalist Panton performs, she has a mesmerizing effect on her audience. Be it at jazz festivals in Juan-les-Pins (France), Montreux (Switzerland) or a concert in her hometown of Hamilton, a quiet hush descends over the audience as listeners await the show. Panton is being heralded as one of the brightest lights on the jazz scene today. Her aesthetic sense has attracted the attention of some of the jazz worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most respected masters. When legendary Canadian multi-instrumentalist Don Thompson first heard Panton sing at age 19, he recommended she audition for the reputed jazz workshop at the Banff Center for the Arts (Canada). There, she studied under Norma Winstone (and in subsequent visits under Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton). When the time finally arrived to go into the studio, national awardwinning guitarist Reg Schwager was invited to join Thompson for some stellar accompaniment behind Pantonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pure vocals. Since her initial CD release, Pantonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career has been gathering steady momentum. Her ethereal voice and strong aesthetic vision have garnered her numerous honours and appreciation from listeners and music critics alike.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Eye health isn’t necessarily based on eyesight DEAR EDITOR: May is Vision Health Month and according to CNIB research, Canadians are more afraid of losing their eyesight than almost anything else. Given that one in seven of us will develop a serious eye disease; it’s a fear that’s certainly not unfounded. Fortunately, 75 per cent of vision loss can be prevented or treated and there are many things we can do to prevent blindness and vision loss. The most important step is to get regular eye exams by a Doctor of Optometry. The problem is that many Canadians aren’t getting their eyes checked as often as they should because they think their eyesight and their eye health are the same thing. They’re not.

20/20 vision and eye disease are not mutually exclusive. The reality is that many eye diseases have no symptoms in their early stages, so someone may not realize they have an eye disease until it’s too late to get treatment that could save their sight. That’s why it’s crucial to have regular, comprehensive eye exams, regardless of how old you are. In recognition of Vision Health Month, we recommend people take action for their eyes and book an eye exam today. Dr. Keith Gordon Vice President, Research, CNIB

EMC Editorial – While May went out with a bang for this area – from Brockville-Thousand Islands Doors Open to the annual MS Walk and humane society walk events, June is another very busy month for this entire region. While the summer weather has thus far been very unpredictable, what is certain are the many exciting, and some even once-in-a-lifetime happenings taking place in June. The list is impressive and includes the 2013 Girls Inc. Strong, Smart and Bold Women of the Year celebration, to the 13th annual 1000 Islands Jazz and Blues Festival June 15 to 22, to the annual Relay for Life for the Canadian Cancer Society at Rows Corner Fairgrounds June 14, the eighth annual Family Ribfest in Gananoque June 28 to July 1, the 1000 Islands Wine and Food Festival June 14 and 15, and of course the piece de resistance – the much anticipated First Port of Call Tall Ships 1812 Tour in Brockville. The festival, from June 14 to 16, will feature something for everyone to enjoy. Festival organizers have been working hard to bring the festival offerings to everyone in Brockville and area. From a First Nations encampment, a Heritage Breakfast, balloon show, performances – and hey, did anyone mention the 13 beautiful tall ships? From the Fair Jeanne, to the Peacemaker from Brunswick, Georgia, Liana’s Ransom from Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Unicorn from Clinton, New Jersey, to the Sørlandet from Kristiansand, Norway, there will be much fun to be had, history to observe, and ambience to soak in all weekend long. So get your calendar out and make plans to get out in Leeds and Grenville in June for the many wonderful events taking place throughout the month.

Uncle Lou’s visits were much like Christmastime EMC Lifestyle - Very important, was my Uncle Lou. Didn’t he just get an award for working on the marble in the Waldorf Astoria in the big city of New York? We even had a chip to prove it. Uncle Lou it was, who at least once a year descended on our farm out in Northcote to bring us unspeakable joy. My mother’s brother, one of the four who made up her family, had no children of his own when we were youngsters, and when he came it was like Christmas all over again. Although our Christmases back then were nothing to write home about! Uncle Lou often came without telling Mother in advance. She would much prefer if he would at least send us a letter that he was on his way. Then the house could be torn apart from top to bottom, so that everything shone like glass... our feather mattress taken off the bed upstairs, the felt one from Mother and Father’s bed hauled up to replace it,

then she would cry. I could never understand if she was so happy why she would cry. My sister Audrey said it was from sheer joy! I thought he looked like he should be a member of parliament. He always wore grey flannel trousers, pressed knife-sharp, and flannel shirts open at the neck. Uncle Lou was tall, and as my sister Audrey once said, he even looks important! We five children never took our eyes off the back seat of the big Buick. We knew for a fact, that inside his big brown cowhide suitcases would be presents beyond belief. Always, there were yards of silk for Mother. And a new purse. Big. With gold clasps, and long handles. And we had no idea how he knew our sizes, but each of us would get a new piece of clothing, and everything always fit like it had been made for us! Uncle Lou would first stop at a grocery store in Renfrew, and there would

be grapes and bananas, and real ham, not like we had in the smoke house, but big slices...thick...just right for sandwiches. It would take ages to unpack the Buick. When it had been emptied, the brothers would carry the cowhide suitcases up to the room my sister Audrey and I shared. Uncle Lou would take over the bed, and we would move down to the creton couch in the kitchen. Mother’s cheeks would be red as tomatoes, and Father, who could never understand what all the fuss was about, would treat Uncle Lou like any other visitor who came out to the farm in Northcote. That meant he would still slurp his tea out of his saucer, and sit with his feet on the oven door at night reading the Ottawa Farm Journal or the Family Herald and Weekly Star. As the evenings wore on, Mother and Uncle Lou would talk about New York and the many years Mother lived there. He would tell her about the changes...

Uncle Lou had a wonderful singing voice. Without fail, every night Mother would get out her harmonica and he would sing as she played. Then she would set the mouth organ aside and they would sing in harmony...songs they both knew. My very favourite was one called, “I had a dream dear”...I thought it was very sad, but beautiful. Sometimes I would see a tear roll down Mother’s cheek when the song was over and I knew she would be remembering those happy years when she lived in the city she loved before she left for the backwoods of Renfrew County.

Garden tour June 8 supports Edwardsburgh Public Library EMC Events - What better way to usher in summer than to take a leisurely tour of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest gardens? The opportunity to do just that comes up on Saturday, June 8, when five spectacular local gardens will be open to visitors as part of the 16th annual Garden Tour fundraiser organized by the Spencerville branch of the Friends of the Edwardsburgh Public Library. All of the gardens are located in either Spencerville or Johnstown and each lends itself to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Whimsical Gardens â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which seeks to highlight the charming and often creative accents avid gardeners add to their outdoor oases. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tour also features an exciting opportunity to visit Spencervilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aubin Farm, which is holding a Family Farm Day in conjunction with the Garden Tour. Specializing in grass-fed livestock, freerange poultry and organic vegetables, Aubin Farm is a delightful example of nature in harmony with the needs of people. At 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. on the day of the tour, visitors can take part in planting sessions, watch cooking demonstrations or take a guided tour of the fascinating farming operation. Floral artwork Another great place to stop on June 8 will be the ArtScene Gallery in Spencerville, which will be exhibiting floral-themed artwork in recognition of the Garden Tour and will even discount prices on the day. But, of course, the big draw will be the gardens themselves, each lovingly and often painstakingly designed, planted and tended so as to turn an otherwise empty field or backyard into a sanctuary of natural splendour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gardens are a place to be happy and

Each of the stops on the self-guided tour will provide visitors with a different experience, as each garden reflects the particular tastes and interests of its

Guests Some of the hosts on the tour will also bring in some interesting guests whose creations, while not floral, still fit with the theme of the day. One site will have demonstrations by the makers of hand-made folding lawn furniture, while another will feature sculptures created by Thecla and Herman Kluck of Spencervilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dutch Hill Gallery. As beautiful as flowers, shrubs and trees are, sometimes what makes a garden truly unique are those little personal touches or peculiar accents that turn the garden from a labour of love into a work of art. It is these flights of fancy that inspired this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Whimsical Gardens theme. Some are natural, some are found items and some are handmade by talented artisans, but whether they be bird houses, wind chimes, mobiles, sculptures, rock arrangements or plaster figurines, they make a garden more than just a plantation. None of it comes easily, though. The end result of gardening may be a place to sit and relax, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of work, too. Fortunately, that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t faze the gardeners on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tour, who find the process as rewarding as the result. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderfully healthy thing to do for your body and your mind,â&#x20AC;? says

Too soon it would be time for Uncle Lou to pack up and head back to New York City. Whole quarters would be thrust into each of our hands, and I knew he would give Mother a few bills too which she would immediately put in the blue sugar bowl with her egg money. Everett would swing wide the gate going out to the lane, and with the horn going full blast, Uncle Lou would spin the tires on the Buick and he was gone. There would be such a silence in the

Mother would cry silently, wiping her eyes and blowing her nose into her apron, and that night our prayers would be for Uncle Louâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe trip to New York. When it came time for our silent prayers each of us were expected to say before we left Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knee, I would pray that Uncle Lou would return soon. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only for the candy, the picture shows and the rides in the big black Buick, it was because his visit would bring Mother unspeakable joy and for a time, release her from the bonds that held her prisoner on that farm in Renfrew County.

He had wood forms he inserted into his shoes when he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wearing them.

Ketchum. Even just touring the gardens can build up an appetite, so this year, the Friends of the Edwardsburgh Public Library have teamed up with Spencervilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church to provide box lunches to tour participants at a cost of $8. Volunteers from St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will prepare the lunches on the day, and all proceeds from their sale will go to the church. Lunches will be available at the church, located on Spencer Street, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Ketchum suggests stopping by the beautiful grounds of the nearby Spencerville Mill to enjoy the lunch before resuming the tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lovely, scenic place to stop,â&#x20AC;? she says.

St. Lawrence II sailing to Brockville to be part of Tall Ships Festival EMC Events - On the morning of June 13, local iconic square-rigged ship, the brigantine St. Lawrence II, (SL2) will set sail from her Kingston berth at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, down-bound on the St. Lawrence River through the scenic Thousand Islands. She is bound for Brockville, first Port of Call for the 2013 Tall Ships Great Lakes tour, which begins there on June 14-16. Aboard will be up to 15 adventurous adults, the ship’s crew-in-training, who have bought a ticket to enjoy a truly unique opportunity and learn what sailing a real tall ship is all about. Included

in that group are two lucky winners from CTV’s Top Secret Vacations promotion. Assisting with hoisting and lowering the big square sails, they will become part of the ship’s daily routine, and become alumni of the oldest sail-training program in North America. And, as trainee crew, when they arrive dockside in Brockville they will experience the festivities and meet the crews of the other tall ships, as well. During the months of June and September some exciting expeditions are planned for adults. These aren’t luxury cruises – trainees are encouraged to par-

Fun-filled day celebrates healthy children June 2 EMC Events - Raising healthy kids is every parent’s goal. At the YMCA, we believe that helping young people grow up healthy makes our whole community stronger. However, we know that the majority of children and youth in Canada are not getting adequate access to opportunities for active recreation and healthy living. The problems facing our kids are real: Our most recent community health profile has produced alarming results. Sixty per cent of our population is overweight or obese. Our choices are creating poor quality of life, unsustainable health care costs and the first generation of children who will have shorter lifespans than their parents. We are in a crisis situation. YMCAs offer a variety of programs to help kids get and stay physically active and put more play in their day. Your YMCA is welcoming the community for

the annual YMCA Healthy Kids Day. This free community event brings children, teens and their families together for a day of active fun and learning. Join us on Sunday June 2, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a free fun-filled day of active healthy living! This year, Future Shop is in the house hosting the “Techno-fit” room - how to get moving with the help of electronic fun! The public is invited to come and share in the excitement, as the YMCA will be accepting a generous donation from Future Shop. Jim Kouri of Investors Group is sponsoring a free-for-kids healthy lunch, $2 for adults. Come and see lots of happy smiling faces, both young and old. Free giveaways too. YMCA Healthy Kids Day is the first day of Healthy Me Week. Learn how to practice active healthy living throughout the week of June 2 to 8 and beyond.

EMC Events - The number of Lyme disease cases is rapidly climbing in Canada and yet most people think it is a rare disease and most unlikely to happen to them. Sadly, this is not true at all. It can be severely debilitating and even fatal to contract Lyme disease from a tick bite. Everyone is at risk, not just campers, hunters and hikers. Your backyard could be home to ticks. It is possible to be bitten on the golf course or in the school yard or on your morning jog. Do you know what the first signs of Lyme disease are? Do you know how to safely remove a tick? On Monday, June 3, - 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., David Kelso (a former Roebuck resident) and his wife Linda Kelso (facilitator of the York North Lyme Disease Support Group) will give a talk on Lyme disease. The talk will introduce you to the controversy over testing and treatment and explain why so many more people are now chronically ill with Lyme disease. As well, tips for prevention, tick removal and identification of symptoms will be shared. Awareness and education are critical in preventing Lyme disease. The session is taking

thing and SLSF will take the lead role as applicant for the various grants the partnership will seek. Success in securing grants will only be possible if the community at large is solidly behind the venture. The partnership is therefore looking to the community for financial donations. FTCA and SLSF benefit greatly by the generosity of their supporters on a continuous basis for the day-to-day needs of both associations and for that they are deeply gratefully. Now, however, they ask patrons to dig a little deeper, to join them in this venture… Donors will receive an income tax donation receipt. Cheques, made payable to St. Andrew Stage Fund, may be dropped off at the Hardings, 305 Centre St. (kitty-corner to Post Office) or at the office of St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival on King Street during business hours. Progress of the fundraising campaign will posted on the FTCA website at www.ftca.ca, or you can follow on Twitter and Facebook for an up to date account. Donors will be officially recognized and the fundraising committee is currently toying with various ideas. One of them is to carve a donor’s initials in one of the floor boards of the new stage for a donation of $250 and up…The public is invited to submit ideas, together with a cheque of course. For more information, contact Michèle Harding at 613925-5805. “FTCA celebrated its 30th season this past year and SLFS its 10th anniversary: How better to start the next decade but with a new stage on which ‘to trip the light fantastic’. Finally, a quote from Jules Massenet, prolific French composer, loosely translated: ‘…art strives to makes life more joyful, to make the heart lighter, and the journey more beautiful.’ Join us,” Harding, Secretary, FTCA, who is responsible for the fundraising campaign, shared.

EMC News - The present stage at St. Andrew’s is in need of repair. Through the years the frequent dismantling and reassembling of the stage has taken its toll. In addition, although functional, it needs to be extended to accommodate the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival (SLSF) events, as well as Fort Town Concert Association (FTCA) operas and other artistic events. Local choirs, for example, have a difficult time fitting their numbers onto the existing stage and it is becoming a safety concern. As a result, FTCA, SLSF and St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church recently decided to collaborate on a fundraising project to build a new, permanent, state of the art stage. To meet the needs of all concerned, this new stage will not only be larger but will be enhanced with microphone outlets and power points to maximize the technological capabilities of Prescott’s cultural venue. Thus the St. Andrew’s Stage Fund campaign was launched. To help the venture move forward, an anonymous donor has pledged to match funds raised, dollar for dollar, up to $4,000. This has triggered an initial $1,500 from local supporters which means, when matched, $3,000 has now been collected to put towards the building of a permanent, larger stage at St. Andrew’s. The goal is to raise $10,000 to cover any cost overruns, as well as to cover the cost of inauguration. Two written quotes will be secured locally. The current estimate for the basic work is $8,000 with ideas for further expansion on the east and west sides of the stage suggested as a second phase. The plan is to build the stage after the SLSF has lowered the curtain on its 2013 Season, in between FTCA 2013/2014 concerts. Jim Mallar of FTCA will co-ordinate the various grant applications (Trillium, BCF, GCFDC, etc.) with the help of the treasurer of St. Andrew’s. Ian Far-

About 40 people gathered to view the growth of the museum and to honour two very exceptional individuals who have given so much over the years. At left, former museum curator/director Deborah Emerton (right) presents Elliott Parker (left) with a very special plaque for all his years of service with the Friends. As for recently retired museum curator/director Bonnie Burke, she was also acknowledged that day for her years of assisting the Friends of the Brockville Museum.

he Canadian Centre for Research on Diabetes is a nonprofit organization dedicated to relieving the suffering caused by diabetes through a program of education, treatment and research directed toward individuals with diabetes and their health care providers. It is based in Smiths Falls, ON at 218 Percy St and has 8 employees including 2 physicians, doing clinical diabetes treatment and research on diabetes as well as 1 nurse educator 3 research coordinators and support staff. The Centre initiates local clinical studies, education and support programs as well as sponsoring a diabetes education web site www.diabetesclinic.ca and participating in international studies on the prevention and treatment of diabetes. The centre and its staff have more than 50 published papers, monographs, book chapters and a book on diabetes for Health Professionals, just coming out in its fourth edition as well as a new book for persons with diabetes. It is estimated that Diabetes affects about 10% of the population of Canada and this number is continuing to rise even further. Unfortunately, up to half of individuals with diabetes are not aware they are affected with the condition, until they develop late complications of this condition. These complications include- heart attacks, strokes, blindness, foot amputations and kidney failure. Earlier diagnosis and treatment could reduce the toll of complications.

The Canadian Diabetes Association recommends that all individuals over the age of 40 years should have a fasting blood glucose test done every 3 years, and sooner if a member of a high risk group (for example family history, high risk ethnicity). A phase, called Pre-Diabetes occurs when blood glucose values are raised but not yet in the diabetic range. This pre-diabetic phase can be effectively treated to delay or prevent diabetes. 90% of the Diabetes in Canada is Type 2 Diabetes and although there is a genetic susceptibility to Diabetes, our changing lifestyle of a high calorie, high fat diet combined with sedentary and inactive life has led to a sharp rise in the number of individuals affected with Diabetes throughout the world. Type 2 Diabetes which once, only used to affect adults, is now affecting more children because of our lifestyles. In Canada, the number of individuals diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes has doubled in the past 20 years and will double again by 2025. Diabetes carries a high cost in both quality and quantity of life. The cost of treating the complications is staggering and continues to rise. Diabetes can be treated, and effective treatment can almost eradicate the complications. Diabetes is a chronic condition that is manageable with lifestyle changes, medications, but above all knowledge of the condition. Understanding why the disease has occurred, why it affects the sugars in our blood, what it can lead to if left untreated and the choices

CANADIAN CENTRE

FOR RESEARCH ON DIABETES RECHERCHE SUR LE DIABETE CENTRE CANADIEN DE

we can make is the cornerstone in management of diabetes. Primary healthcare providers also need to be aware of the current goals and standards of care for diabetics. Our role as healthcare professionals, is to assist an individual with diabetes to achieve their goals to promote better quality of life and to avoid complications. Diabetes is a condition that affects blood vessels in the body, therefore, if left untreated it may potentially lead to two types of complications; The first is if the large blood vessels of the body are involved (Macrovascular disease), leading to heart attack and stroke. People with diabetes are at twice the risk of heart attack than non-diabetics. The treatment of this increase in large vessel risk is increased activity and weight loss but the most significant prevention is by the use of medications; specifically statin to reduce cholesterol levels and ACE inhibitors for improved vascular health. The second type of complication occurs if small vessels are involved (Microvascular disease) leading to blindness, kidney failure, impotence and foot/leg amputations. By achieving normal glucose in the blood, this may virtually eliminate small blood vessel disease. Canada continues to be a world leader in diabetes research. This research is essential for continued improvement in the lives of individuals with diabetes. Our centre has participated in several worldwide studies in prevention of Diabetes. One

landmark study in diabetes prevention was the DREAM Study, which demonstrated that Type 2 diabetes can be prevented. The ORIGIN Trial involved early insulin treatment to prevent cardiovascular complications. Currently the centre is participating in a number of studies with new treatments. A GLP-1 study is investigating the reduction of major cardiovascular events and other serious outcomes in individuals with Type 2 Diabetes. There are currently a few studies investigating various therapies in those with type 2 diabetes with pre-existing heart conditions. Another study investigates individuals who are poorly controlled solely on an oral medication, called Metformin. There are a number of other potential new studies which will improve the future of diabetic care. The centre is also participating in a study investigating the use of insulin pumps in Type 2 Diabetes patients. We are actively looking for individuals with different characteristics for our studies: Individuals who have been recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and that have not received any medications for its treatment, individuals taking up to two diabetic medications with a history of cardiac disease. Individuals taking Metformin and Gliclazide or Glyburide, and individuals taking 3 or more injections of insulin a day. Those individuals who are interested in enrolling into research studies should contact

our center and speak with one of our research coordinators at 613-283-8582. Those interested should also keep in mind the benefits of enrolling, such as constant monitoring by trained professionals, free testing supplies, including meters and strips. The Centre Medical Director is Dr. James R. Conway who was educated in Ottawa and has worked in the Smiths Falls area for the past 35 years. He does a clinical practice in diabetes with people referred by their family physician. He also runs the centre’s insulin pump program which is recognized by the Government of Ontario as part of the Insulin Pump Program of the Assistive Devices Program. This unique program covers the cost of insulin pumps for people with Type 1 Diabetes in Ontario. Dr. Conway is the author of “Type 2 Diabetes, A Health Practitioners Guide” which is now in its 4th edition and distributed to 25,000 Canadian Physicians. He is a member of the Canadian Diabetes Association, the Canadian Society of Endocrinology & Metabolism, the American Diabetes Assoc., the European Assoc. for the Study of Diabetes and International Diabetes Federation. He is associate editor of Canadian Diabetes, a CDA journal for diabetes professionals as well as editor of the Canadian Journal of Diabetes. Nurse Educator is Debbie MacNair R.N., BSc.N. MSN. who has spent the past 25 years in diabetes care and is the author of several published scientific papers. For additional information, call 613-283-8582.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. – Albert Einstein 22 ST. LAWRENCE EMC - Thursday, May 30, 2013

EMC News - One day of fundraising has resulted in the changing of four teenagers’ lives. Close to $15,000 was raised by Boardwalk Dental Care, May 10, through its Charity Day event. These funds have been divided up and given to each high school in Brockville – Thousand Islands Secondary School, Brockville Collegiate Institute, Academie Catholique Ange-Gabriel, St. Mary Catholic High School. Each has been given more than $3,600 as a bursary for one of their graduating students – a student who is going to college or university in the fall. Each year the dental centre raises funds on its annual charity day different local charities have been the recipients of funds each year. A committee at Boardwalk Dental Care comes together once a year and invites local charities to submit their request for funds. One cause is chosen. This year Bruce Sherman, a public school teacher, suggested to Dr. Peter Culp that scholarships might be something to consider. Boardwalk Dental Care’s team accepted the suggestion as a symbol of the friendship between Sherman and Culp, Carolyn Young, office manager explained. Sherman has always helped with the charity day in the past and has been a kind of

Cheerleaders from Brockville Collegiate Institute were in attendance at Boardwalk Dental Care’s annual Charity Day, held May 10. Funds raised that day, nearly $15,000, have been divided up equally amongst Brockville’s four high schools, as a bursary for one lucky graduating student at each school. Thousand Islands Secondary School cheerleaders were also there, as well as parents and students from all schools. The event attracted large crowds (left).

mentor. “Our entire team feels it is important to give back to the community who have raised us (to success),” she noted. The day consists of a number of things, from a barbecue to bake sale, to the staff donating their time. This results in all proceeds from all dental work that day also going to the cause. Patients “do so much for us,” Young emphasized, saying some even bring them in lunch. This is Boardwalk Dental Care’s way of saying thank you and giving back. Dr. Culp, was born in Brockville, and came back 18 years ago. Also featured was an Elvis impersonator - Debra Currier and Stephen Goodberry performed for the large crowd who came out for the day’s events. Peter Dunn, from the Brockville Arts Centre, donated tickets for a show, which were raffled off. The city donated picnic tables so those who came had a place to sit down for the day. Thousand Islands Secondary School and Brockville Collegiate Institute cheerleaders attended, and students and parents from all schools came out to support the barbecue portion of the day. And, of course, Boardwalk Dental Care thanks the patients who scheduled their treatments for that day as well.

Overwhelming number of projects updated during tourism session Peter Dunn said 2012 was a year of soldout shows with visitors coming from Quebec, New York State and Ontario. Dunn announced the Thousand Islands Theatre Experience, a theatre bundle in partnership with the Playhouse Theatre, Brockville Arts Centre, the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival and the Upper Canada Playhouse. “We are trying to create a theatre corridor,” said Dunn. “We are clustering our attractions, as well as cross promote.” The Summer Series brochures detail the six musical shows starting with The Photo by DOREEN BARNES Piano Men, followed by Abbamania One of the new initiatives at the and Night Fever, Heaven’s Little Honky Brockville Arts Centre is the Thou- Tonk, Elvis Aloha from Hawaii, The Roy Orbison Story, and Take Me Home

sand Islands Theatre Experience. As Administrator of culture programs, Peter Dunn explained this bundle includes theatre and concerts available along the St. Lawrence corridor in this region.

a Tribute to the Music of John Denver. St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival: Taking to the stage was the very talented artistic director Ian Farthing singing Some Enchanted Evening. This festival is in its 11th season bringing concerts to the Fort Town from July 13 to Aug. 17. The summer series with two mainstay shows unfolds beginning with Maid of a Musket, loosely based on Shakespeare’s Love’s Labours Lost, set in Prescott in 1813, the year Fort Wellington was built and the raid on Ogdensburg takes place. Hamlet is the other Festival classic. “We also do the Sunday Series with a contemporary twist, The Sonnet Man, a hip hop Shakespeare fusion, a great way

to introduce kids to Shakespeare,” said Farthing. As well Paul Rainville will be in concert. The Festival also has a week-long training program for youth, age 13 and up. 1000 Islands Playhouse: Artist director Ashlie Corcoran talked about the upcoming 2013 season at the Playhouse including the presentation of Suds and Boeing, Boeing, No Great Mischief, the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee at the Springer Theatre. At the Firehall Theatre, Third Floor, a thriller with a twist, the (Post) Mistress and Salt Water Moon, a Canadian Classic.

“So in order to achieve this (the interactive displays) we have drawn on the many stories to tie those to the activities that you will see and do in the region today,” said Rogerson, “ we communicate that through a series of signature experiences, all designed around four main themes, interactive, entertaining, enriching and promote repeat visitation.” This facility will feature a shipwreck dive tank which can be used for diving certification. On the third level there will be a clay tile fish wall created with the help of art teacher David Sheridan and the Thousand Islands Secondary School students. Canada’s First Railway Tunnel: “Opening the tunnel is more than just opening a tunnel,” said chair of the Brockville Railway Tunnel Advisory Committee David LeSueur. “We are working with many individuals to get this tunnel open.” This vision of the tunnel is to walk, ride or bicycle through it as a link to shopping, boat rides and dining.

EMC News – Brockville tourism manager Steve Weir gave a brief event update during the 2013 Brockville Tourism Information Session at the beginning of May. He talked about the brochure swap, the Visitors Guide and the International Travel Guide distribution and being in Toronto at the end of the month to hand out 10 to 15 boxes of Visitors Guides at the Via Rail Tourism Trade Show. Weir talked about events taking place, namely the Tall Ships Festival, Thousand Islands Wine and Food and the 1000 Islands Jazz and Blues Festival, Hydroplane Automotion, Ribfest, participating at the St. Lawrence College Trade Fair and coordinating the International EuroFab Convention in conjunction with the Frontenac Arch Biosphere, in October with 120 international delegates. Plus Brockville Tourism will be present at the Zoomers Show, Toronto, and the Ontario Tourism Summit. The Great Waterway: This not-for-profit organization coordinates the varied activities of the tourism industry within Region 9, one of 13 in the province. Marketing and communications coordinator Krista Doyle spoke relative to the location of Region 9 which runs from Quinte West, Prince Edward County along the St. Lawrence River to a little past Cornwall. “Our actual vision is to position itself to achieve the highest percentage of growth of tourism visitation, revenues and investment amongst Ontario’s tourism regions,” said Doyle, “by developing results-driven, product investment development and marketing initiatives.” The five pillars are marketing, product development workforce development, investment attraction, governance and administration. The 2013-14 marketing initiatives include refreshing the new website, launching the marketing campaign, distributing a new cycling brochure, using FAM tourism tours and launching the Great Waterway hot-air balloon. Tall Ships 1812: “Today I’ll go through some the highlights, but go to the website as it is updated daily,” stated chair of the Brockville Tall Ships 1812 Tour and Festival Committee Dave Paul. “This is our signature 1812 commemoration.” The passport has a listing of all the ships with information, plus useful coupons. “Upon boarding a ship, each passport will be validated with a customized ship stamp,” added Paul. A map and schedule of events brochure outlines all the activities on each day. “The Liana’ Ransom and the Empire Sandy will be going for sail outs during each day,” said Paul. “We have just learned that a Gilbert Manufacturing boat from the 1920s built right here in Brockville will be here.” Hardy Park will be Pirate Land for children with a myriad of activities for all ages, not to mention fireworks, a sound and light show, Heritage Displays, vendors, theatrical groups and so much more. The Food and Wine Festival plus the 1000 Islands Jazz and Blues Festival are also part of this celebration. RiverQuest and Aquatarium: Executive director Bill Rogerson showed a video outlining what people can expect on their visit to the Aquatarium with domes and water overhead as well as RiverQuest interactive activities.

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

EMC Lifestyle - Getting energy smart is always in style but there’s no better time than the summer months to cut energy costs around the home. According to Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association, homeowners not only benefit from energy savings but home buyers are increasingly conscious of efficiency: “Home buyers don’t want to deal with the cost and upkeep associated with an inefficient home any more than homeowners do,” says Dorner. With that in mind, here are some tips for homeowners to keep costs down this summer: Replace air conditioner filters: Dirty filters restrict airflow and can cause the system to run longer, increasing energy use. Get your air conditioner tuned up on a regular basis – you can clean the outside compressor with a hose, removing debris that impedes air flow. If your air conditioner needs replacing, invest in an energy efficient model. Swimming pool filters and cleaning

sweeps: Reduce the operating time of your pool filter and automatic cleaning sweep to four to five hours, and only during off-peak hours. Get planting: Strategically planted trees and shrubs will help keep your home cool and according to the Ontario Ministry of Energy, planting a tree or shrub to shade your central air conditioner can improve the unit’s efficiency by up to 10 per cent. Seek shade: Install patio covers, awnings, and solar window screens to shade your home from the sun and remember to close your blinds and curtains during the day (this can block up to 65 per cent of incoming heat). Go with the flow: Install a ceiling fan and make sure it runs in a counter-clockwise direction to help circulate a breeze throughout your home. Use cold water: Whenever possible, wash laundry in cold water. Almost 90 per cent of your washing machine’s energy consumption comes from heating water. Hang your clothes to dry natu-

rally. Reduce cooling: Open windows at night and use fans to blow in cool air. During the day, close your windows and when you aren’t home set the thermostat a few degrees higher. Clear out of the kitchen: Your stove and oven not only use energy but they heat up your home. No better reason to fire up the grill or brush up on light meals that don’t require cooking. This summer, challenge your family to get smart when it comes to saving energy. Improving the efficiency of your home doesn’t have to be overly expensive or labour intensive – instead, focus on making select upgrades and simple changes to your routine. If you are considering selling your home, speak to your realtor about the features that buyers look for so you can make your home stand out from the pack.

Their mess, your problem? A neighbour’s clutter can hurt your home’s value EMC Business - Do you live beside an eyesore property? You know the kind – a lawn full of weeds, a rusty car in the driveway, peeling paint and a sagging roof. According to Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association, not only does the shabby place next door impact the aesthetics of your street but it can affect the sale price of your home and prolong selling time. “Home sellers can be so focused on the condition of their own home that they forget how important the appearance of the neighbour’s house and property is for potential buyers,” says Dorner. “While there’s no doubt that approaching a neighbour whose property is in bad repair is tricky, it is absolutely worth having the conversation so that their mess doesn’t overshadow the true value of your home.” Dorner recommends talking to your realtor about the best way to broach the

subject with your neighbour. Realtors have experience talking to homeowners about these kinds of issues so they won’t be fazed. There’s almost always a solution and your realtor can help you find the best one without getting emotional or worked up about the issue. Here are some tried and true tactics to dealing with a messy property next door: Talk to your neighbour: Let them know you’re planning to sell and gently ask them to clean up their front and back yard. If they are elderly and unable to do the work themselves, offer to look into free or inexpensive services that can help or offer to roll up your sleeves and do it yourself. Locate the owner: When living beside a renter who’s unwilling to assume responsibility, ask your realtor to help you track down the owner or landlord and speak with them.

Contact the city: Many municipalities have bylaws about the appearance of lawns and homes. See if any are applicable in your area and speak to a bylaw officer to find a solution. Create a diversion: If they refuse to cooperate, detract from their house by placing an eye-catching tree or row of flowers at the entry of your own property. Don’t be afraid to call for back-up: Remind yourself that if a property is in really bad shape, more often than not your other neighbours will be keen to fix the problem as well. Dorner adds, “Get together with your realtor and discuss proactive ways of dealing with the issue – sometimes it’s as simple as having a conversation or being prepared to offer a hand if it is a scenario where your neighbour is unable to maintain their property.” Submitted by the Ontario Real Estate Association.

Local woman faces life and Multiple Sclerosis with a positive attitude By DOREEN BARNES

Heike Meier has lived with Multiple Sclerosis since 1984 and welcomes each day with a smile. Although she uses a wheelchair, she feels that there is always someone worse off then she is. Meier keeps active with the local MS Chapter and writes the Education for Quality Accessibility newsletter.

On top of the worry as to what was happening to her, the physicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attitude didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give her any comfort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was frustrating,â&#x20AC;? admitted Meier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was finally diagnosed.â&#x20AC;? Meier was able to cope at home with what she called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wall walkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, using furniture, but eventually she had to use a cane for about three to four years, then a wheelchair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes extreme effort to do things, as you tire easily,â&#x20AC;? said Meier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was too much of a struggle, so I finally resigned myself to that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy as it not only affects the person who has it, but everyone around you, the family.â&#x20AC;? She used a manual wheelchair for about 10 years; not wanting to change to a power operated one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once I had the power chair it became so much easier as I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to push myself,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny because I always felt using a power wheelchair would make me feel more disabled.â&#x20AC;?

She tries to make the most of every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You try not to let it get you down as there is always someone worse off than you,â&#x20AC;? said Meier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is hard. The one thing I really found hard was to realize I could not drive anymore. I was still driving when I had my cane and all of a sudden I found this too dangerous. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d endanger not only myself, my children and whoever was (in) the car but somebody else. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think twice about quitting. That was quite an adjustment.â&#x20AC;?

Now that her husband Bert has retired he has become the head chef with Meier his assistant. She does the laundry as much as she can as reaching down is an effort and even gardening is difficult. Her sons, Peter and Paul installed a raised flowerbed for her to reach and enjoy which she has always done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The majority of all the work lands on my husband,â&#x20AC;? said Meier. When asked what Meier has learned about herself with having multiple sclerosis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You find that you have different strengths,â&#x20AC;? she shared. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was involved in the MS Chapter. In the beginning, there were always meetings held once a month in Brockville, now that has changed including the dynamics. I have written the MS newsletters for a long time and when we first moved I volunteered at the school for 19 years in the library and kept on even with my cane, then a wheelchair. For a few years I was involved with Cub Scouts. The volunteering eventually got to be too much.â&#x20AC;? Meier assists with the Education for Quality Accessibility (EQA) organization by writing their newsletter and trying to stay active. For the local MS Society events, Meier has a telephone list to contact people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I first found out that I had MS, I was very hesitant to contact the MS Society,â&#x20AC;? stated Meier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I denied it.â&#x20AC;? She believes there is more information now then there was when she was diagnosed and she said the local Chapter is very helpful in providing equipment and moral supports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once I decided to go to a MS meeting and met others who had it, I felt thank goodness it is not as horrendous as I had thought and they are managing,â&#x20AC;? said Meier. One thing that Meier misses is camping. The whole family used to camp and found it so enjoyable. What Meier does not miss are people who are reluctant to talk to her because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a wheelchair. She wants those individuals to know that she is approachable, can converse and has opinions. Meier would like to see people in wheelchairs treated with kindness, respect and involvement.

36 ST. LAWRENCE EMC - Thursday, May 30, 2013

Bones (Karl Urban), Sulu (John Cho), Scotty (Simon Pegg) and Chekov (Anton Yelchin) to their absolute limits. Especially when they begin to realize there are plots wrapped within plots. They’re venturing into murky waters with no map to guide them, and as the mystery unravels it becomes harder to know who their enemies are. Star Trek: Into Darkness is perfect. Every shot, every scene, every single little detail is absolutely perfect. J.J. Abrams has created the kind of movie world and experience you can lose yourself in completely. The special effects, the sets, the CGI, the props, the costumes and all those little details have created the kind of movie you feel you could walk right into. Technically the film is flawless, but it doesn’t stop there. Into Darkness is intense, and exciting but with these perfectly timed moments of drama and humour. It pays homage to all those great stories that happened before, which will undoubtedly

appease the hard core fans, but it stands on its own, meaning you don’t have to know anything about the Star Trek mythos to enjoy this film. It’s a brilliant piece of storytelling. In terms of performances this cast is unequaled. These are some of the most iconic roles in movie history. Most would have said the crew of the Enterprise is untouchable yet after the first film they proved that wrong. In this the second one they begin to make us think they might even be better. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John, Cho, Simon Pegg, and Anton Yelchin, are the crew of the Enterprise. As for the villain I won’t spoil it for anyone who still doesn’t know who it is. All I’ll say is that Benedict Cumberbatch is brilliant. Star Trek: Into Darkness is an absolute must-see film. Enough said. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

MOVIE: Star Trek: Into Darkness STARRING: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John, Cho, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, and Benedict Cumberbatch DIRECTOR: J.J. Abrams EMC Entertainment - There are films that are good. There are films that are great, and then there are those films that leave you with chills. Star Trek: Into Darkness is one of those films. A former Federation operative known as John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) carries out an elaborate plan to destroy a Star Fleet archive in the middle of London. As a result Star Fleet’s top brass convene an emergency meeting to deal with the threat. Which was exactly what he wanted. With all of Star Fleet’s top officers in one place Harrison strikes. He manages to kill a number of officers including Captain Pike (Bruce Greenwood) before Kirk can stop him (Chris Pine). Harrison escapes, but it’s clear he intends to wage a one-man war on Star Fleet. Kirk vows to bring this murderer to justice, but to do that the crew of the Enterprise will have to chase Harrison to the Klingon home world, and risk intergalactic war. It’s a mission that will push Kirk, Spock (Zachery Quinto), Uhura (Zoe Saldna),

EMC Lifestyle - Serve this easy but elegant recipe with a green salad or potatoes and maple carrots for a special spring celebration. Preparation Time: 25 minutes Baking Time: 25 to 30 minutes Broiling Time: two to three minutes (optional) Serves four. Ingredients · 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (5 to 6 oz/150 to 170 g each) · 2 tbsp (25 mL) Dijon mustard · 2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh tarragon · Salt and pepper · 4 slices Provolone cheese

· 16 asparagus spears, trimmed (about 8 oz/250 g) · 2 tbsp (25 mL) butter, melted · 1/4 cup (50 mL) fresh whole wheat bread crumbs Preparation instructions Place chicken between waxed paper; pound with mallet to flatten to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Combine mustard, tarragon, and salt and pepper to taste; spread evenly over rough side of each breast. Top each with cheese slice and 4 asparagus spears. Roll up chicken, letting asparagus protrude on both ends; secure with toothpicks. Place, seam side down, on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Brush with a little of the

butter. Toss crumbs with remaining butter; pat onto stuffed breasts. Sprinkle with pepper to taste. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced. Broil for two to three minutes to brown topping if desired. Remove toothpicks and slice to serve. Tip: Allow toothpicks to protrude on side of stuffed chicken for easy removal after baking.

Restaurant to host special night for Friends of the Brockville Museum EMC Events - Why cook when you can have someone do it for you? You are invited to gather your family or a group of friends together to join the Friends of the Brockville Museum at Boston Pizza at 2000 Parkedale Ave. for a ‘Celebrity Server Event’, between 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12. Boston Pizza will donate 10 per cent of all food sales to the Friends of the Brockville Museum. The food is excellent and the service friendly. Staff and volunteers will be in costume to welcome all guests and there will be more surprises during the evening. Due to the tremendous growth of the museum’s collection over the last few years they can no longer manage to document their collections with pen

and paper. The museum has officially unveiled its “Open Drawer” project. The goal is to purchase Canadianmade software specifically designed for museum use that will not only help to manage their collections but to also better share these resources both in the museum and online. Their mission though continues to remain the same, to make the collection as widely accessible as possible while at the same time preserving the wonderful items that have been so generously donated. So please join in for an entertaining evening, meet some of their supporters, and feast upon some tasty food. For more information please contact the Brockville Museum; email museum@brockville.com or phone 613-342-4397.

EMC Entertainment - ‘From Fearful to Fabulous and everywhere in Between, Journeys in Poetry and Prose’ is the first published book by Brockville author Sandra Jean Buck. It is a life journey written over several years. Although it chronicles the author’s own experiences, ideas and concepts, it also reaches deep into the hearts of others to awaken the slumbering spirit residing there. Many of the insightful works have been inspired during meditation or other reflection. Buck believes that when all is said and done, we are much more alike than we are different. All of us are tied together by that spark of the divine that gives us life. It is her intention that the reader become aware of their own inherent perfection, through the compassionate thought that her writings may foster. It is her belief that the answer to every question is already within us. This powerful little book is available on Amazon.com, by email at alternative.approaches@yahoo.ca, at Leeds County Books and at Little White Lite. A book signing event will be taking place Sunday June 9, from 12 noon to 4 p.m. at Little White Lite, 35 Central Ave. E., Brockville.

May Court provides childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerts By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Brockville Concert Association (BCA) in conjunction with the May Court Club of Brockville, a volunteer charitable organization, brought a free concert to school children Thursday, May 16. Approximately 500 students from J.L. Jordan Catholic School, St. John Bosco Catholic School, Toniata Public School, South Edwardsburg Public School, Sweets Cornerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Public School, South Crosby Public School, Westminster Public School and Vanier Public School filed into the Brockville Arts Centre to enjoy a full range of percussion instruments, featuring Rhythm and Stomp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The concerts, which we are calling the â&#x20AC;&#x153;May Court Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Concertsâ&#x20AC;?, provide an opportunity to our school children to come to the theatre, interact with artists, and enjoy a live show that exposes them to classical music

and instruments in a fun and educational way,â&#x20AC;? said BCA member Anne Dawson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The initiative was started in 2011 with a performance of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peter and the Wolfâ&#x20AC;? especially tailored to appeal to children aged 6 to 12 years and explain various orchestral instruments, while last year â&#x20AC;&#x153;Orfea and the Golden Harpâ&#x20AC;? was presented.â&#x20AC;? The very talented artists, Bruno Roy and Thierry Arsenault were from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jeunesses Musicalesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in Montreal and are specially trained to bring the joys of music to young children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dedicated to assisting the community, the members of May Court voted to continue the sponsorship of the May Court Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerts for at least another four years after this year,â&#x20AC;? offered Dawson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some children would otherwise never experience the joys of good music in a real theatre and certainly never in the fun and educational way that Jeunesses Musicales. The children, teachers and the Brockville

Concert Association are deeply grateful to the ladies of May Court for making this possible.â&#x20AC;? For this year, BCA is asking the students to provide a drawing of their impression of the Rhythm and Stomp concert to be collected at their school with the top six being sent into the Brockville Concert Association for judging. The judges will be the ladies at the May Court Club of Brockville. From the submissions, the top three will be selected and prizes will be awarded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The winning selections will receive a prize from Unique Music and a CD of classical music,â&#x20AC;? said Dawson.

Pilot community gardens project gets off the ground EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A pilot project, which officially launched May 18, gives Brockville residents access to gardening space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the official opening of the Butlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creek Community Gardens,â&#x20AC;? said Transition Brockville coordinator Hugh Campbell, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which is a pilot project of the Brockville Community Garden Network (BCGN).â&#x20AC;? Transition Brockville is a member of Food Matters Coalition (Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Health Unit), a lead partner. The other two partners are the City of Brockville, whose land is being made available for the season and the Volunteer Centre of St. Lawrence-Rideau acting as a contact point for the community, phone number, email and website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The three partners have been working for the past year to get this up and running,â&#x20AC;? indicated Campbell. Campbell continued to read the goals of BCGN which is to provide all Brockville residents with access to safe, secure and low-cost food gardening space near to their homes; to engage children and youth in establishment and operation of gardens and to strengthen our community by involving multiple partners from a variety of sectors, households, businesses, not-for-profits and schools. It was mentioned that the hope for this pilot garden is to see gardens springing up in other neighbourhoods, across the city, where there is demand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today (the purpose) is to open the garden and acknowledge all the effort that has brought us this far,â&#x20AC;? said Campbell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the top of the list is to bring a

in contributing to the ever increasing costs along with climate change, more frequent droughts or the heavy rains. Gardens require a slow water soaking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transition Brockvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general reaction and approach to that predicament is to get more localized and less dependent on big systems and take back control of these things in many aspect of our lives,â&#x20AC;? said Campbell. In the future, Campbell sees more and more gardens being tended in the Brockville area â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Not only are there corners of lands right across the city that are great candidates for gardening, but there is a lot of private property,â&#x20AC;? stated Campbell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a backyard shared with neighbours, for example an elderly couple who can no longer get down to the ground level, can invite their neighbours, a young family next door to come over and teach the young people how to grow (vegetables) and they can all share in their produce.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also suggested that businesses rather than mow their grass, that they instead provide staff gardens. For novice gardeners, there has already been a workshop given by Food Matters Coalition in the spring and there should be another in the autumn. As the demand for gardening workshops grows so will the frequency of these seminars. Log onto www.volunteercentre.ca to find more information about the Butlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creek Community Gardens.

Program, the Brockville and Area Community Living Association and many others have entered into the Garden User Agreement. There are some restrictions on what crops can be planted. Corn and any tall crops will not be allowed due to shading of other plots. The size of the gardening plots are either 10â&#x20AC;&#x2122;x10â&#x20AC;&#x2122; for $15, or 10â&#x20AC;&#x2122;x20â&#x20AC;&#x2122; for $25 with storage of tools and other items in the storage shed, (formerly used at the downtown ice rink at Hardy Park). â&#x20AC;&#x153;As far as security relating to stealing produce from the gardens, this has been well thought out,â&#x20AC;? admitted Campbell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a video camera on the front of Gord Watts Municipal Centre building and 24-hour traffic on this roadway with vehicles coming to gas up and visible to the major traffic route, plus the Brockville Police Services sit here with their radar,â&#x20AC;? indicated Campbell. With all the planting, watering and weeding, these plots will yield fresh produce and gardeners are encouraged to share their bounty with Operation Harvest Sharing Food Bank and Loaves and Fishes. According to Campbell, the initiative started with the local food drive like the 100 Mile Diet. He feels that agencies and families are becoming more concerned about where their food is coming from, especially the reliance on processed foods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The price of food is going up and it makes sense to go back to what our grandparentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; generation was doing,â&#x20AC;? said Campbell. He believes that the cost of fossil fuel

North Leeds Men’s Fastball League share team bios EMC Sports - Seeley’s Bay Centennials - It will be the Seeley’s Bay Centennials second year playing in the North Leeds Men’s Fastball League. After a second place finish last year they are hoping for another strong season. The group of players they have now is based around a group that started playing together in bantam. When the responsibility of running the team was passed on to Spencer Sortberg in Junior men’s ball Spencer made it his mission to bring a men’s team back to The Bay. When they became a men’s team last year they added wily veteran pitcher Chris Bresee and veteran infielder Gord Dier, bringing years of experience to pass on to the younger players. The Centennials pitching is rounded out by the up and coming Mike Dier, and working with Bresee and Mike Dier will be Spencer Sortberg behind the dish. Centennials home run leader last year was former Lombardy boy and Brockville Bunny, Scott Niblock who will be playing short stop this season. First baseman Blair Warren is another one of the stronger hitters on the club, and will be looking to Sortberg to solidify the order.

Lyn Men’s Fastpitch Men’s fastpitch is making its return to Lyn after a six year absence from the league. The team is made up of the same players that fielded the team that played out of Brockville for two years. The pitching duties for Lyn will be of Jeff McNish and Matt McNish and will be teaming up with Jon Cross behind the dish. Lyn will also rely on the bats of Cross and the McNish as well as veteran’s Ryan Brown, Adam Cross, Mike Hanna and Jason Livingstone. With a good mixture of veteran’s and young rookies fastball is looking good in Lyn. Lyn is attending the 10th annual Casey at Bat Tournament in Williamsburg May 24th-26th, with another in the works for June. Eastons Corners Athletics Eastons Corners Athletics will have Jermy Malloy and Andrew Wiggins toeing up the slab this season. Mike Hanna, Ben Maloney and Steve McGrath will be the heart of the order for the Athletics and the speedy Will Earle will keep things hopping on the base paths! Easton’s Corners started playing fastball way back in the early ’70s playing in the South Rideau league. Eastons Corners is hoping to host a tournament this year too, dates are in the makings still. Stay tuned.

BOYD PILATZKE January 27, 1952 to June 1, 2012 I watched you suffer I saw you die But all I could do was sit close by You went away, we had to part God eased your pain But broke my heart They say it’s a beautiful journey From the old world to the new Someday I’ll make that journey Which will lead me straight to you And when I reach that garden In which there is no pain I’ll put my arms around you And never part again They say there is a reason They say that time will heal But neither time nor reason Will change the way we feel For no-one knows the heartache That lies behind our smiles No-one knows how many times We have broken down and cried We want to tell you something So there won’t be any doubt You’re so wonderful to think of But so hard to be without With love always until we all meet again, Candy, Clayton, Amy, Travis, Jordon and Brooke

Gill, Pecore, Stapper, Pugh, Gifford and Ray share Brockville victory lane EMC Sports - Threatening skies all evening didn’t stop 107 cars from packing the pits and putting on yet another fantastic show this past Saturday night at the Brockville Ontario Speedway. Joe Banks and Ryan Arbuthnot paced the 358 Modified field to the green flag and Arbuthnot got the holeshot into turn 1 with Banks, Pat O’Brien, Lee Gill And John Mulder just behind him. Arbuthnot would lead the opening 7 laps until last week’s winner Danny O’Brien looped his machine in turn 4. He would recover to finish 6th. On the restart coming off turn 4 Daniel Nadeau and Brian McDonald made heavy contact sending McDonald hard into the front stretch wall and forcing him pitside for the night. On the lap 8 restart Arbuthnot remained the man on top but a hard charging Lee Gill started to make his presence known. Both he and Arbuthnot battled for the lead the next 6 laps until Luke Stewart spun off turn 4. When the green flew on lap 14 it didn’t take long for the mayhem to erupt in tricky turn 4. Mario Clair was turned sideways while running 9th causing a four-car pile up which included points leader Stephane Lafrance, Jason Riddell, Michel Chicoine and John Mulder. Lafrance would come back on the race track and salvage a top 10 finish. On the restart Arbuthnot continued his strong drive but Gill was tired of running second and used a power move off turn 2 to grab the GARAGE SALE

top spot and open up a commanding lead on the field. Behind him the story of the night was Joe Banks. After starting on the outside pole he had a great side-byside battle with five-time track champion Pat O’Brien. The two drivers swapped spots 3 and 4 for the next 10 laps until lap 29 when Banks had a tire go down spoiling his chances for a top 5 finish. With a 1 lap shootout to the checkers Gill jumped to a four car-length lead and would never look back cruising to his first win of 2013 with O’Brien taking second from Arbuthnot. Luke Whitteker and Bobby Herrington completed the top 5.

The Sportsman class so far has been dominated by Shane Pecore but he would have his work cut out as he started in the 18th position. Ryan Comeau and 2010 track champion Dylan Evoy led the field to Gary Vandermeer’s green flag and Evoy wasted no time jumping out to a 5 car-length lead. The yellow flew quickly on lap 3 as Brian Copp spun off turn 1. When the green returned Evoy continued his great run with Bruce Makinson and two-time defending track champion Chris Herbison making up the top 3. On lap 6 Jessica Power spun through the infield on the front stretch bringing out the second caution of the race. Evoy still led the way on the restart but Herbison was ready to pounce. After taking second from Makinson he quickly closed in on the leader and the GARAGE SALE

battle was on. The top 2 drivers raced side by side for several laps and in the process allowed Shane Pecore to close within striking distance of the top 2. Another late race caution set up a 6-lap sprint to the checkers and Evoy was looking to hold on. The green flew and Pecore immediately went to work. He drove by Herbison in turn 3 with 5 to go to pick up second and just 2 laps later would sail by Evoy in the same corner to grab the lead and run away to his third straight win of 2013. Evoy, Herbison, Makinson and Steve Barber who came from 14th to finish 5th.

The first-ever Ford Dingwall Memorial Vintage series event was on the card. Twelve Vintage Modifieds came to the start of the 15-lap affair and former street stock champion Pete Stapper wasted no time at all jumping to the early advantage over Paul Billings. A lap 3 spin by Jeremiah Stephenson brought out the first caution, but that was just a small part of the excitement. On lap 5 Stapper was battling hard with Brandon Gregory down the back stretch. The two drivers made contact sending Gregory’s car off turn 3 and flipping two times. Amazingly he was able to re-fire the car, drive it back to the pits and charge to an impressive ninth place finish. With some snowflakes beginning to fall Denzil Billings Jr. and Stapper continued their war for the lead and Stapper grabbed the top spot just before halfway. On lap 9 Billings saw his great run go away after a spin in turn 1. Despite several challenges by Steve Lackie, Pete Stapper was not to be denied as he scored the inaugural series win over Lackie, Phil Ross, Steve Arbuthnot and Josh Powers. In Rookie Sportsman action Jeremy Coulter a former Legends driver raced his way to the lead from the pole position in the 15-lap event. Chris Bakker and Richard Raison made up the top 3 early on. The man to beat has been Aaron Pugh and the Kingston native charged from his fifth starting spot to take the lead just before halfway. A late race caution would set up a 2-lap dash to the checkers. Despite a seized brake caliper from early race contact with Chris Bakker, it would not slow his charge as he sailed on to his third win in as many weeks with Bakker Taking second,

Jasmine David charged from seventh Triple Crown for the 358 Modifieds and to third at the line. Jeremy Coulter and Sportsman will take place.

EMC Sports - Dylan Evoy and the Evoy Racing team from Brockville continued their 2013 season with the opening night events at Mohawk International Raceway. It’s where Evoy returned as reigning champion in the Sportsman division, taking the top honours in 2012 and 2011, setting a track record for wins in that division over those two seasons. Evoy was also back at the Brockville Speedway on Saturday night, May 18 for the first race in the Seaway Sportsman Series. The Evoy team travelled to Mohawk Raceway on Friday night, May 17 looking to return to their winning ways at a track they have dominated at over the past two seasons. By luck of the draw coming through the pit gate, Dylan started his qualifying heat race from the outside of the front row. He jumped to the early lead and never looked back, taking the preliminary heat win. He started the 20-lap feature from inside row two in the third position and wasted no time

On Saturday night at Brockville Speedway, Evoy was fast once again, and with the Seaway Series in town, time trials would determine starting positions. Dylan finished his qualifier in third place, locking himself into the redraw for the feature. By lap eight in the feature, Evoy had worked his way into the top five, and continued to move forward as the race progressed.

On lap 28, Evoy moved into second place, and did all he could to mount a challenge for the win, but would come up just a little bit short in his bid for a perfect weekend. “The car worked great both nights,” Evoy said after the Brockville race. “We had a strong car, but just didn’t quite have enough to get up there and grab the win. We will keep working on it, and will be back next week looking to continue the strong start to our season.”

Don’t get too flat in a one plane swing club is pointing more vertical than horizontal at the halfway point of your backswing. Why? When the shaft is more horizontal you will swing the club too flat leading to round house hooks and some straight pushes. Boy is that all too familiar with yours truly over here. Anyways, you should concentrate on getting the shaft of the club in more of a vertical position as this will lead to a lot straighter golf shots. This is crucial if you are a One Plane Swinger. I definitely experience this from time to time myself, and when I do I usually hit those low hooks and the odd block (pushed golf shot). But on the other hand when I do ‘tip the shaft’, have it in that more vertical position halfway back, I’ll hit the ball high and straight with a little draw. A good drill to help you eliminate this is to set up where your backside is inches away from a wall. Swing the club back by not making any contact with the wall, if you swing it back too flat your club will bang into the wall instantly. So if you are a One Planer and you are hitting those low hooks and the odd pushed shot, check your club shaft halfway back.

By J R RYAN EMC Sports - There are quite a few different versions of the One Plane Swing out there, all with their own unique characteristics. But there is one common trademark of the One Plane Swing. At the top of your backswing your arms are somewhat swung on the same plane your shoulders rotate on. In plain English, your arms swing more around your body than in front of your body. If you watch professional golf on TV or the internet, check out the player’s lead arm in relation to their shoulder plane. You will notice they are on a similar plane. You don’t have to dot every “i” and cross every “t” to have an effective One Plane Swing. This type of golf swing is more dominant on the tours than the Two Plane Swing, where your arm swing is timed with your body rotation. The arms are swung more in front of the body than around the body like the One Plane Swing is. The one thing One Plane Swingers will be guilty of at times is getting the shaft of the club tipping more horizontal than vertical at the half way back position of the backswing. This will result in a backswing that is too flat leading to Army Golf with left and right misses. Similar to a soldier marching left- right left- right. So make sure when you are doing your backswing that the shaft of your
