COPS focuses on future of policing

COMMUNITY

By DOREEN BARNES

News – The future of policing in Brockville was front and centre Thursday, Sept. 19. The community room at the 1000 Islands Mall swelled quickly to standing room only, as interested Brockvillians attended the Citizens Offering Police Support (COPS) meeting. One of those focused on the ‘Regarding Beyond the Costs . . . Community Solutions and Best Practices’ section, was retired director of community and social services of the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville Dorothy Theobald. Working 30 years in community and social services, Theobald knows how important communication is. “My role was fairly comprehensive in terms of the programs we were responsible for,� said Theobald. “I was accountable

OSPCA appeals to community for Sunday’s annual telethon News – Ontario SPCA Leeds & Grenville Branch will hold its 11th annual Telethon this Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. The telethon will be presented live from the TVCogeco Studio located at 333 California Avenue, unit 13A., Brockville. “Our volunteers are invaluable,” says Marianne Carlyle, Branch Manager for Leeds & Grenville. “Their passion for helping our animals can be seen any day of the week at our branch whether it’s helping with animal transfers, daily animal care in our shelter or organizing such key fund-raising events like our annual telethon. To all our volunteers, thanks for giving so much to help our animals.” Each year the challenge of meeting the funding requirements for the branch is daunting and the possibility of reducing services is a reality.

SNC hosts another full youth hunt this weekend Events – For the sixth year in a row, a partnership between South Nation Conservation and Delta Waterfowl has resulted in a fully subscribed Youth Hunt. This year’s group includes: one young girl, and nine young boys. The event is all about introducing local, young people to the Hunter Apprenticeship Safety Program, which includes the Hunters Safety course, and the Canadian Firearms course. For six years running, all 10 spots have been filled by young people, aged 12-15, keen to learn about hunting: regulations, safety, and ethics. All costs including meals, training and manuals are covered by the organizers. SNC Resource Technician, Ryan Robson, said the event is designed to get young hunters off on the right foot so they grow up practicing good values every time they go out. “We’re training the conservationists of tomorrow to respect safety, wildlife, habitat, and private property.” Training and testing for the youth was covered over a three-day period in September and the hunt weekend will take place on Oct. 5-6. A meet and greet between participants and their hunting mentors, SNC and Delta representatives and Conservation Officers, an archery workshop/ demonstration, and skeet shoot is hosted this Saturday, Oct. 5. The guided hunt will take place on Sunday, Oct. 6.

The telethon is the branch’s major fundraising event of the year and without it, the Ontario SCPA Leeds & Grenville Branch would be hard pressed to continue providing care for animals that have been abused, neglected or abandoned. Last year, the branch housed more than 1,300 animals from the community. “TVCogeco remains our strong partner in producing this annual event. Stop by the TVCogeco studio and see our available adoption animals and make your annual donation. There will also be satellite locations around Leeds & Grenville for easy donation drop offs during this time-frame,” says Carlyle. Please check the website at www. leedsgrenville.ontariospca.ca or view us on Facebook: Ontario SPCA Leeds & Grenville Branch for more details.

Correction Editorial - In the Sept. 26 edition of the St. Lawrence News EMC, the article, ‘Building expansion is full speed ahead’ contained some misinformation. Dr. John Erb is married to Shireen Palamkote who was introduced at the meeting. Dr. Erb and Dr. Michelle Casey, as part of the Thousand Islands Family Health Organization (TIFHO), participate, along with eight colleagues, in after-hours Urgent Care clinics during the evenings and weekends on a rotation scheduled between Lansdowne, Gananoque and Seeley’s Bay. The new allied healthcare services will be shared between Gananoque, Seeley’s Bay and Lansdowne. As Michael Paquette and Andrew Atkins outlined, the expansion and renovation plans for the centre, they did not refer to the current building as “being in a state of disaster”. They did refer to the current heating and cooling system as a being a “disaster” that would need to be replaced regardless of the plans for the expansion. Helping to cover the expansion and renovation costs will be $100,000 graciously donated by the Township of Leeds and Thousand Islands, not the casino. The township may use casino revenue to provide this funding but it comes from the township. In addition the township has agreed to provide up to $300,000 in the form of a loan to the Medical Centre.

The other concern with this particular type of model is that there’s no ability for a board or council to www.riverratmarine.com defer big ticket items, like building renovations or improvements. Conversely, Section 31 which is the one we currently have, both board and council can decide to defer any big projects to mitigate the cost to the taxpayer.”

there are some limitations, the current model is still better than the alternative,” said Theobald. Elaborating further, Theobald mentioned that with local governance it has meant the service is in alignment with the community needs, that the Brockville Police Services Board (BPSB) has a history of responsible, effective management and service, and the leadership has identified efficiencies and provided accountability for public funds. In fact, in April 2012, the BPSB, Police Executive and Brockville Police Services identified $750,000 in savings. Historically, the BPSB has negotiated and settled salary agreements with the Brockville Police Association without arbitration. “So in an OPP Policing Model (Section 10), many municipalities are concerned as they believe that their control and influence is diminished under that model,” said Theobald. “The OPP conducts centralized contract negotiations with the OPP Association; there’s no mu-

historically has found solutions to our problems and I believe that the Brockville Police Service is the best fit for this community.” Theobald spoke about the years that she worked with the Brockville Police Service and Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and how much respect she has for both organizations and how this meeting was not about the quality of services. “My presentation tonight takes us beyond the cost and is intended to provide you with information identified as some of the key concerns we have with the OPP model,” she said. “As well, it raises some questions that we need to ask and think about as they relate to policing in our community, in the future.” Model comparisons Theobald provided information regarding the governance or role from the Police Services Act of Ontario (section 10 & 31) which defines the role and responsibility of local police boards in an OPP Municipal Policing and Municipal Police Services. As well, municipal experience points to distinct differences; namely, diminished local input into costs and local policy. To compare the two governances, Theobald spoke about the Brockville Governance Model (Section 31) wherein there’s a Brockville Police Services Board which is comprised of Brockville citizens/taxpayers, all with a strong interest in and understanding of the community. The board’s role is to govern the policies, goals and objectives of the police service, to be accountable to the community and council, to have a council representative on the board, and have inherent challenges with Special Purpose Board (such as police boards) as spoken in a recent consultants report (Western Management Consultants).

Y on the Fly program a success: Expands into Prescott and Cardinal By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

News – Building resilient and healthy children while making connections to the community, the Y on the Fly program is currently expanding its footprint to Cardinal and Prescott. Starting out in Brockville three years ago, the Brockville and Area YMCA community-based children’s program has seen an explosion in growth the past six months. Benson Public School will be the location for the Benson Kids’ Club program starting up Oct. 2 and running Wednesdays from 3 to 4:30 p.m. In Prescott at South Grenville District High School a leadership program will begin Oct. 3 running from 2:30 to 4 p.m. The programs will be tailored to the community. Much as it began in Brockville. The program in Brockville currently runs in the Shrine Hall, on Reynolds Drive. Serving members and nonmembers of the YMCA of Brockville and Area, with a target towards children ages five to nine and 10 to 16. The age groups are divided for their weekly

sessions. Tuesdays and Thursdays, the drop in program runs from 3 to 5 p.m. The program runs twice a week during the school year, “with exceptions to PA Days and holidays,� noted the YMCA in email correspondence. Summer month scheduling is different as well. “It very much continues in the summer time,� Ruth Carter, supervisor, youth programs at the Y noted. When the program first began, it ran for only one hour on one day of the week. Now with their new home at the Shrine Hall, it has provided further opportunities for growth. The children have made the space their own – each age group has made their own banners for the walls, and their art work hangs proudly on yet another brightly painted yellow wall. The space provides ample room for indoor games, snacks, and arts and crafts. A small kitchen area allows the children to aid with prep for snacks, as well as clean up, commented Dylan Myatt, coordinator, school age youth and of this program for the Y. For children and youth their time

With older children team building and leadership games are often emphasized. The program highlights keeping children active, as well as nutrition and the 40 developmental assets for early childhood, set out by the Search Institute, Healthy Communities Healthy Youth. There is no charge at all for children and youth to attend and take part. The program has between 40 and

50 children involved. Y on the Fly also fits in nicely with the mandate of the Y’s strategic plan for 2013-2017, Carter said. The mission, “strengthening community is our cause. Transforming lives is what we do.� The plan says the commitment of the Y is to nurture the potential of children, teens and young adults, promote healthy lifestyles, foster social responsibility and more. The program is run in partnership with the local Brockville and District Shrine Club, the United Counties of

Leeds and Grenville, and the Brockville Police Service has provided youth interns. Also, key funding has come from the 1000 Islands Community Development Corporation, and the Criminal Court Community Fund, Carter emphasized the role the funds have played. Contributed dollars have enabled the hiring of Myatt, and have also allowed for expansion of the program. For further information please contact the Y, at 613-342-7961, or visit www.brockvilley.com.

Citizens group on policing raises questions about OPP costs By DOREEN BARNES

News – The Citizens Offering Police Support (COPS) meeting Sept. 19 focused, in large part, on costs of policing the City of Brockville, with the municipality considering a possible shift from the local police service to the OPP. “This is really an information session to disseminate information about what is happening in Brockville,� said pro-cityforce committee head Louise Severson. “We will have a close examination of the tax letter that was in your tax bill.� Severson mentioned that two speakers would address the audience – Bob Larocque, a retired executive at three major global companies and former Brockville Police Services Board member, along with Dorothy Theobald, the retired social services director for Brockville and the counties. Her presentation is published on the front page. The two would address what the broader community is saying about Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) costs, what recent OPP cost increases look like and beyond the direct costs/community solutions/best practices. COPS is a group of concerned citizens who see the potential loss of Brockville’s police service to the OPP as having a negative impact on the protection and safety of the community. Brockville Police Services is considered the oldest police force in Ontario, serving for 181 years. “There are serious issues involved in changing our city’s police and we want citizens to be informed of that potential impact,� said Severson. “Citizens need

A couple of hundred Brockville citizens came out on Thursday, Sept. 19 to hear the information that COPS, Citizens Offering Police Support had to share. open transparent information to receive fair and accurate data about our Brockville Police costs and the OPP’s. Many communities who have OPP contracts are saying OPP costs are increasing at unsustainable levels and they (residents) have no input or control of these costs. Local governance and delivery models do play a key role in ensuring services will meet local community needs.� Severson asked those present if they had any questions, to fill out the available questionnaire and in four days that person would have an answer. It was established early on that this COPS meeting was not of a question and answer format for debate, it was an information session. Presenter Bob Larocque The reason that long-time Brockville resident Larocque became involved with COPS was due to the situation that took

place in Perth with its police force and the OPP contract. “On June 5 in Perth, the OPP proposal for costs was received and two days later they had their first public meeting,� indicated Larocque. “Five days after that they had their second public meeting. On the 26th of June, Perth Council disbanded the police.� So Larocque feels that there is no better time to have open discussions about OPP costing then right now as Brockville Council goes forward to receive costs. “As citizens, we have to become engaged and understand what is happening, and what could happen, if in fact, we went to the OPP,� stated Larocque. He talked about the letter that taxpayers received accompanying the tax bill with a graph showing costs of the Brockville Police Services being the highest of all the communities that were shown. Those other communities were Sault Ste. Marie, Belleville, Barrie, Stratford, Timmins, Sarnia, St. Thomas and Peterborough. Gananoque, Smiths Falls and Cornwall were not listed. “We question that data and why it was presented that way,� said Larocque.

Larocque said COPS believes that all Brockville citizens should be aware of this information given out by the City of Brockville, not just to taxpayers (property owners), but all citizens. “The protection and safety of our community is serious business,� he said. “It’s important the information conveyed to citizens is explained and understood, so that is why we need to talk about the tax levy.� The data raised questions within COPS committee wondering about the source of the information, the graph and why it was created. “With my research, the BMA Study Sampling, the file came from FIR (Financial Information Report) 2011, Cost per Capita,� said Larocque. “Every municipality in the province is required to submit this annually to the government and they use the data to put together statistics and one of those is Performance Management Cost Per Capita.� Those interested can refer to http:// csconramp.mah.gov.on.ca/fir/ViewFIR2011.htm. This 2011 Financial Information Return provides schedules on operations, revenue, grants, tax information, community improvement plan as well as six Performance Measure Reports. He feels that it is necessary to understand this data and the accuracy relative to the Brockville cost of policing. At the very bottom of the graph, it is noted that the FIR data should not be used for comparisons between communities. COPS wondered why Gananoque, Prescott and Cornwall’s dollar cost per capita were left off. If added, the ranking of these areas showed Brockville’s positioning as in between; Gananoque was $614 per capita, Prescott $479, Brockville $453, Cornwall $356 and Sault Ste Marie at $336. “Why were these important compari-

sons left off by the city (Brockville)?� questioned Larocque. Next, Larocque spoke of the Brockville Police Services budget as presented on page two of taxpayers’ letter. “On page two of the tax letter is the police budget and the revenue from the criminal checks is over a million dollars,� said Larocque. “Expenses are $8.5M for a net operating budget of $7.4M. The population of Brockville is roughly 20,000. If you take $7.4M divided by 20,000, cost per capita is $370, not 452.� Larocque questioned why the FIR does not include the criminal check revenue of $929,949, but does include the program support for overhead that the city adds on top of the Police Budget, totaling $877,608. “I do know that with overhead you can reallocate, make it go somewhere else,� said Larocque. “To be successful you need to eliminate the overhead. Reduce costs!� The impact on cost per capita of the city overhead which was added to the Police Budget is $877,608/19,204 = $45.69. Larocque continued to say that if Brockville signs a contract with the OPP, the overhead does not go away; that overhead gets distributed among the departments which could lead to cutting city staff or services. “If the reduction of criminal checks were included, $48.43 ($929,949/19,204=$48.43), the cost per capita would reflect $404.31, which has come down from the $452.74,� said Larocque. Regarding the impact of the city’s overhead being added to the police budget, COPS feels that for comparison purposes that the allocations should be removed or normalized which would not distort the comparisons.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On Tuesday, Sept. 24, with Carter in front, the members of Cruisinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the Dub A & W, left to right, Kevin Smith, Bob Foss, Bill Close and Chubby Kelly with the support of TISMA (Thousand Islands Street Machines Association) delivered $1,000 worth of cat and dog food, kitty litter, dog bones and toys to Leeds-Grenville OSPCA branch manager Marianne Carlyle (second from left). This group meets at the A & W Restaurant on Parkedale in Brockville each Tuesday, from June to September and raises funds to donate back to the community. For the 2013 season, Cruisinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the Dub has raised close to $8,000 which has been donated, either monetarily or through merchandise, to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Leeds and Grenville, Loaves and Fishes Brockville and Leeds and Grenville OSPCA. The blue vehicle (right) in the photo is owned by Chubby Kelly and is a 1930 Model A Ford Street Rod. Missing from this photo is Yvonne Mueller and Mo (Maureen) Close. Both organizations thank the local merchants for their consideration.

COSTS The example given was most comparison cities allocate between $6-15 as the cost per capita impact, whereas if Brockville adopted that method, then Brockvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allocation of impact would be $33.69 (Brockville allocations $45.69 - $12 = $33.69). â&#x20AC;&#x153;To really compare costs, the city needs to reduce the cost per capita of $404.31 by $33.69,â&#x20AC;? to $371, suggested Larocque. The points COPS wants to make is: â&#x20AC;˘ to have full disclosure and transparency from the city regarding the BMC report (tax letter graphs) and who created this material, â&#x20AC;˘ BMA, Provincial FIR and even Statistics Canada cautions against use of the data they have when comparing to other communities, â&#x20AC;˘ COPS feel the information in the tax letter positions Brockville Police costs unfairly in comparison to other communities, â&#x20AC;˘ to be advised that COPS is not downplaying the costs of policing, experienced by all municipalities in Ontario, â&#x20AC;˘ both citizens and the city council should be knowledgeable regarding issues. So, what are COPS concerns? â&#x20AC;&#x153;City council seems to be focused on getting the costs from the OPP,â&#x20AC;? said Larocque. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many communities already have OPP contracts as this is not a new situation and

we should understand their experiences.â&#x20AC;? He went on to say that the OPP cost proposals show a lower cost, but what will the future increase be? Larocque also touched on what others have said about OPP costs such as the Ontario Auditor Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Report on OPP Costing 2012, available at www. auditor.on.ca, as to the recommendations regarding staff deployment and cost controls. From the Ontario Mayors Coalition on affordable Sustainable Accountable Policing, www.mayorscoalition.com, some municipalitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; policing costs have doubled, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no direct control over how money they collect is spent, no accountability back to the municipality paying the bill, no control over policing strategy to name a few. As for the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, www.amo.on.ca/advocacy, at its August 2013 conference, AMO president Russ Powers was straight to the point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford our OPP contracts and we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the wage increases that the OPP is about to get.â&#x20AC;? The Ontario Association of Police Service Boards, www.oapsb.ca/advocacy indicated that basic service levels are determined unilaterally by the OPP and service rates are determined by the provincial government and largely driven by labour costs as negotiated between the province and the OPP Association.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Care and Share Tourney shares thanks DEAR EDITOR: On behalf of the tournament committee, Brockville Highland Golf, Civitan, Brockville Kinsmen and Brockville Lions Clubs we would like to express our sincere appreciation for all of those involved with our third annual Brockville Community Care and Share Tourney. Without the support of area businesses, industries, corporations and individuals it would not be possible to raise funds for worthy causes such as the ones we have chosen.

Due to support and generosity from all involved, we were able to raise a record amount of $50,000 in the third year. We were also fortunate to receive an anonymous donation of $25,000, which brings our total for 2013 to an amazing $75,000. The BGH Cardiovascular Rehab program has received a cheque in the amount of $60,000. Each service club will be receiving and See LETTER page 9

Editorial – On a regular basis, this newspaper profiles the positive contributions youth are making in the area and it’s time for those actions to be showcased on a broader scale. It’s time once again to consider nominating a deserving youth for the 2013 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Award, offered annually by the Ontario Community Newspaper Association (OCNA), of which this newspaper is a member, and sponsored by Direct Energy and TD Bank Group. One doesn’t have to look far to see youth impacting their communities in inspiring ways. Take a look on the sports field, students helping out others in school or at church. Any resident of Ontario, aged six to 17 (who is six but no older than 17 by Nov. 30, 2013) can be nominated in four different categories, including: those involved in a worthwhile service; a young person who contributes to their community while living with a physical or psychological limitation; kids who go above and beyond to make life better for others over and above what would normally be expected of them; and an individual who has done a heroic act over the past year. According to the OCNA, up to 12 nominees will be chosen with the final recipients of the provincial award to appear at a gala in spring 2014. Help us pay tribute to the youth who will shape our communities into the future. Youth nominated for the honour will be personally presented with a certificate of recognition and their contributions will be showcased in this newspaper. The deadline for nominations is Nov. 30. Forms are available online at www.ocna.org/juniorcitizen or by calling the OCNA at 905-639-8720 ext. 221.

Central was vital link with community off the farm Lifestyle - It was a complete mystery to me. I never thought much about it before Uncle Lou, with his usual feeling of compassion for Mother, installed our first telephone out on the farm in Northcote. But once that beautiful oak contraption was hung on our wall in the kitchen, I was in complete awe of how someone not even in our house, knew when we wanted to talk to someone miles away, or they wanted to talk to us. That someone was right inside Briscoe’s General Store! She sat on a padded chair in front of a big board with holes in it, and long cords trapped in a desk-like affair in front of her. Usually, a light would come on, but sometimes a little bell would ring, and she would know exactly what to do with those cords and the holes in the board with the red lights flashing! Sometimes, Mr. Briscoe manned what was called the switchboard himself, but I have little memory of his voice coming into our oak phone on the kitchen

wall. It was someone we simply called “Central”. The very first day we got the phone, will stay in my mind forever. Mother cried. Not from sadness, but from the sheer wonder of finally being able to talk to someone at will beyond the four walls of our old log house. That first night, we sat around the kitchen waiting for the phone to ring. There was no looking through Eaton’s catalogue that night, or whittling or playing cards at the pine table. Even Mother’s diaries never left the back-tothe-wall cupboard. We sat in a circle as if we were in a theatre.

wasn’t that impressed. Finally, it came around to bedtime, and it looked very much like the phone was not going to ring. It was Mother who decided, if no one was going to ‘call in’, then she would ‘call out’. She went to the beautiful new phone, which I thought was every bit as nice as the new oak ice box grandfather bought for us, and took the receiver off the hook, and pressed a little black button on the side of the box. “Could I please talk to Bertha Thom,” she said into the black mouthpiece. And there it was! There was Mother talking to Aunt Bertha! Just as if she was in another room, and not across the 20 acre field on the next farm. When the phone was put in that day, we were told our ring was ‘two longs and a short’. It didn’t take us long to know the rings of everyone else in Northcote. But it really didn’t matter if we knew the right rings or not, because “Central” as we called the switchboard at Briscoes General Store, was well acquainted with

the rings of everyone for miles around. Having a phone was not without its problems. When it rang, it could be for any number of homes in Northcote! As many as four or even five other families shared the line! We soon found out you had to be extremely careful what you said on the phone, because, if they chose to listen in, everyone who took off their receiver where privileged to your conversation. And it wasn’t unusual to have your complete conversation repeated the next day at the General Store! It also wasn’t unusual to pick up the receiver and ask Central if she knew where Mrs. Hines was...her advice was needed. And Central always knew where everyone was. Sometimes when Mother rang a neighbour, Central would come on and say, “Oh, she’s gone into Renfrew to Walkers...she needed some lace trim for a blouse she’s making. She should be back in a couple hours...do you want me to ring you when she gets home?” Central was the lifeblood of the entire

neighbourhood. If there was a fire, or any other emergency, somehow Central was able to ring all the farms at the same time, at least that seemed to be the case. Because everyone responded in jig time to give a helping hand where needed. Of course you didn’t need Central if you knew the ring of the person you were calling. You just pressed the little black button on the side of the telephone and twirled the handle on the other side, giving the number of rings to reach whomever you wanted to talk to. And it wasn’t unusual for Central to interrupt your call to tell you some important bit of news, or to say someone else was trying to get the phone, and would you please hurry it up and free up the line!! It was different when Mr. Briscoe was answering a call. With him it was all business...no time for idle chatter with Mr. Briscoe! Mother always felt safer once we had the phone put in on the farm.

Yes indeed. The new phone made a world of difference to our lives on the farm. And “Central”, I thought back then, was just about the most important person in Northcote. She was that vital link between isolation and connection with a neighbour.

Brockville business gets thanks for support of Lutheran We Care Program By DOREEN BARNES

Photo by DOREEN BARNES

The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church Blanket Making Group, left to right, Ingrid Haskin, Audette Clunas, Women’s Group chair Joyce Hess gives Brockville Home Hardware Building Centre sales supervisor Richard Hutt a framed certificate thanking the store for shipping the boxes of 20 quilts, six donated blankets and 107 pneumonia vests to Home Hardware Building Centre in St. Jacobs. Looking on, from the right are Pat Davidson and Mary Clarke. In the second row, left to right are Charlotte Thompson, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church pastor Bruce Thompson and Micheline Cameron. These precious items will travel to the Canadian Lutheran World Relief warehouse in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where they are distributed to needy families around the world. Missing from this photo is Norma Howard. 1003.R0012334448

News – As the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church’s cupboard fills up with quilts, blankets, pneumonia vests and other knit or sewn articles, it becomes evident that it’s time to contact Paul Blakeny of Brockville Home Hardware Building Centre. With the generous support of Home Hardware Building Centres, free shipping is provided for Lutheran congregations to send We Care Program kits and quilts to the Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) warehouse in Winnipeg. For the items that are made locally, Blakeny makes arrangements for the boxed items to be shipped to St. Jacobs which is eventually forwarded on to the Lutheran warehouse in Winnipeg. According to Good Shepherd Lutheran Women’s Group chair Joyce Hess, this service started with co-founder of the Home Hardware Store in St. Jacobs, Walter Hachborne. “We find this service invaluable,” said Hess. “The cost for shipping would be prohibitive for the churches or CLWR.” Every third Wednesday of the month, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., eight to 10 ladies of the Good Shepherd Lutheran Blanket Making Group come together to make a difference in other peoples’ lives; people they have never met. “We call ourselves the Good Shepherd Lutheran Blanket Making Group,” said Hess. “We bring a lunch, socialize, knit or sew quilts and other items.” The Canadian Lutheran World Relief started We Care Program, which can be traced back to 1945.

“This effort is right across Canada,” said Good Shepherd Lutheran pastor Bruce Thompson, “in the Lutheran Churches from one coast to the other coast.” It was formed to assist displaced persons from World War II and overseas for those who had lost so much during the conflict. “Since 2001, we have sent 304 quilts, 174 kits and 219 pneumonia vests,” said Hess. “The quilts are made from new or used donated material and are machine sewn into simple sturdy quilts. They ask that we not send socks, (mitts, hats) or clothing.” In some needy homes, the quilts or blankets are used as a room divider. The We Care Program provides 60x80 inch adult quilts, 40x50 inch children’s quilts, blankets, various kits (sewing, children’s, women’s, men’s, hygiene, school pack and baby bundles), knit afghans, lap covers and pneumonia vests for infants and children along with cash to purchase new blankets abroad. “Most of the pneumonia vests are knit by two ladies who live in Prescott,” added Hess. “As well, another Prescott person, Velta Vaivads, used to tie the quilts for us. Sadly we just lost a very dear friend and member of our group, Janice Sparrow, who lovingly helped to make quilts.” The Blanket Making Group will welcome anyone who would like to come to help with this program, to knit, sew, crochet or whatever, there’s always a job. “They can cut, tie with yarn or press,” said Hess. “There’s always to do. “If anyone would like to knit at home, we would supply the pattern. Afghans and lap covers are also accepted. Or if you would like to donate material, the group would appreciate flannel sheets, large pieces of cotton material, polyester thread of any colour and double knitting yarn, but please no drapery material. The Sunday prior to the filled boxes being shipped, there’s a blessing of the blankets at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. To find out more about We Care Program or to donate material, call Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 374 Stewart Blvd., Brockville, 613-342-2155.

Thousand Islands Writers Festival presents â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;History at the Courthouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The 2013 Thousand Islands Writers Festival presents History at the Courthouse on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 1 p.m. at the historic 18th century Brockville Courthouse. The event will feature award-winning novelist Tom Taylor and local author Ronald Doering reading and discussing their latest novels. Both authorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; novels take place during the War of 1812 in this region. Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently released novel Brockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Traitor opens with the raid on Gananoque, and the chase into Kingston Harbour. It continues with the night attack on Elizabethtown, and the charge across the ice from Prescott to Ogdensburg. Brockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Traitor is the third book in Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series, beginning with Brockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Agent. His second novel, Brockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Railroad, just won the gold medal for Wartime Fiction from the Independent Publisher Awards. The book is also a finalist in the Book of the Year Awards Historical Fiction category, in the Foreword Reviews Awards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first novel, Brockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Agent was reviewed by the Globe & Mail, which is a rare occurrence for a selfpublished novel,â&#x20AC;? said festival chair Russ Disotell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It speaks volumes about the quality of his writing.â&#x20AC;? Ronaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book Defending Our Home is sub-titled Loyalist Families of Dundas Counties and The Battle of Cryslerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Farm. Having lost their homes in New York to the Yankees in the American Revolutionary War just 30 years before, the refugee loyalist families of Dundas County had their homes threatened again when, in the fall of 1813, they found themselves in the path of the single biggest offensive in what was to become known as the War of 1812. The story describes the skirmishes that took place along the Canadian shore of the St. Lawrence River as the largest army that had ever been assembled by the United States proceeded relentlessly through their farms on its way to capture Montreal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of our committee members was helping at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spencerville Heritage Festival and heard Ronaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation,â&#x20AC;? said Disotell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The audience was mesmerized and it was a real tourde-force presentation. Our committee member came back raving about the event and saying we had to invite him to Brockville. So it should be a wonderful afternoon. History at the Courthouse should help inform the audience about local events during the War of 1812 and put in perspective the reason for all of the pageantry weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in the area in the last few years.â&#x20AC;? History at the Courthouse takes place on Oct. 19 at 1 p.m. at the Brockville Courthouse. Tickets are $15 and available at the Brockville Public Library, Leeds County Books, and at the door.

Terry Fox Run organizers from across the country were in attendance as Terry Fox was inducted into Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk of Fame in Toronto, recently.

Leasing or financing options weighed out Lifestyle - “Dear Brian, My sister recently took out a lease on a 2014 Kia Soul, saying the offer was just too good to pass up. Kia threw in four mounted winter tires and a driver compartment slush catcher thingy, whose name I don’t know. I’d appreciate your take on leasing vs. buying from the financial and maintenance angles. As a separate but related issue, what is your rule of thumb regarding when one should replace one’s vehicle based on the financial issues only (some people trade on alternate years ‘just because’). As the owner of a 2005 AWD Pontiac Vibe which has already cost me $2,000 for both rear wheel bearings and rear differential rebuild, I don’t know how long I should hold on to this one; I drive about 10,000 km per year on highways mainly.” In appreciation and sincerely, Undecided Great question(s)! Leasing is making a strong comeback from its near-demise in the midst of the last recession. Then many carmakers got extremely toasty (read burned) from the losses they incurred when the end-of-lease values they placed on their vehicles turned out to be considerably more than the units were worth in that very depressed market of the time. Now leasing has almost returned to its prerecession popularity. Its acceptance is

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

due mainly to the fact that it lets consumers enjoy lower monthly payments on extremely well-equipped vehicles, but there are bumps in the leasing road ahead for the uninitiated, so here’s a little food for thought. Leasing companies (including those run by auto manufacturers) have tightened up on their lease terms. Vehicles nowadays must be returned at the end of the lease in almost ready-to-sell condition, with very little wear and tear or else the customer faces major bills. This is severe enough that most car dealerships are offering ‘wear and tear’ insurance to their leasing clients to avoid them getting stung at the contract’s termination. If you have to buy insurance to protect yourself from a lease contract, what does that say about the terms? Carmakers will respond that the fault lies with the drivers of the past who did little or no maintenance to their leased vehicles and it’s the automaker that needs protection. Another concern with leasing is the

mileage restriction clause. At the onset of every lease, the anticipated distance travelled must be spelled out in the lease with penalties assigned for overages. Often a consumer’s commuting situation may change in the middle of a leasing term and always for the worse. Then at the end of their contract their vehicle has travelled far too many kilometers and they face a major bill to reconcile things. On the plus side, leasing can be a very beneficial alternative to purchase financing. Most consumers find that a purchase plan that pays off the vehicle loan before its useful life ends carries unmanageable monthly payments. Therefore they would be unlikely to reap a trade-in benefit when purchasing the next vehicle. Leasing avoids this by only charging for the depreciation of the vehicle during its time in service. And smart leasees can inflate their monthly payments to create a guaranteed end value that would be lower than actual retail pricing. This lets them buy out and own their auto for less than its current value or use that positive ledger point as a down payment on their next vehicle whether leased or purchased. Many drivers travel predictable and stable distances annually, and properly maintain their rides so these factors aren’t a risk when they choose to lease. And of course leases, usually having

THE EMERALD ASH BORER (EAB)

shorter terms than purchase financing (four years versus six years or more) allow customers to take advantage of newer models with improved equipment and up-to-date styling. The thrill of driving a new vehicle is hard to put a price tag on. Whether leasing is right for our undecided can only be determined by his or her own factors in daily driving life. With regards to the current 2005 Pontiac Vibe, while we may keep vehicles longer on average, the 10 year/250,000 km guide still applies. This is the average lifespan that most mainstream automakers build to. Certainly some last longer and many reach earlier graves but those limits are still there. Some easy rules for determining when it’s time to consider retiring a ride are…

a) When you’re faced with a single repair event that approaches the current wholesale value of the vehicle and/or b) When it becomes unreliable or no longer fits your transportation needs.

Leeds Grenville Fire Prevention Committee Always be aware of where the fire exits are when entering any building.

There is a very simple recipe for cooking up trouble in the kitchen: all you need is a bit of distraction, loose sleeves, and a whole lot of disorganization on the stovetop. Needless to say, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the best dish to serve up to your family. Fire Prevention Canada has a better menu in mind with this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fire Prevention Week, from October 6-12 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the perfect time to be thinking about how to prevent kitchen fires while cooking. Learning how to be wise when using the stove and microwave oven is as easy as learning to cook in the first place. Show your children the kid safety zone in the kitchen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; this is a 90-cm buffer zone around the stove and oven. Because hot oil can spatter burning droplets into the air around the stovetop, and because of the risk of knocking over boiling pots of water, it is important that kids keep well clear of the dangers around this appliance. To put out a microwave fire, stop the appliance immediately by unplugging it or using the â&#x20AC;&#x153;cancelâ&#x20AC;? button. Never open the door until all signs of fire are gone; simply shutting it off and leaving the door closed will deprive the fire of oxygen and put it out. If the appliance continues to appear to be burning even after the flames are out, call the fire department. Be sure to keep an eye on a bag of microwave popcorn that is being popped, because heat can build up quickly. For dangerous grease fires, never use water to extinguish the flames. Turn off the burner, quickly put on an oven mitt, and slide a cover over the burning pan or pot of grease â&#x20AC;&#x201D; use a metal cookie sheet if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a pot lid. Leave the house and call 911 as soon as you think you can no longer control any kind of kitchen fire.

Keep children and animals well away from hot appliances and roll up long sleeves. Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove; use oven mitts to remove dishes from the oven; place hot plates on an appropriate surface well away from the edge of a worktop or cooking surface; and beware of steam produced by cooking food. Do you feel like some delicious homemade fries? Be sure to use a certified fryer with a thermostatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heat oil in a pot to fry foods, because oil fires are easy to start and hard to put out. Keep articles made of paper, fabric, and plastic well away from heating elements. When you leave the kitchen ensure that all cooking devices are switched off. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t store objects in the oven. Greasy residues can accumulate and catch fire, so be sure to regularly clean the inside as well as the outside of your stove, the ventilation hood, and the recipients under the elements. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow a buildup of residues to accumulate in a self-clean oven. If your clothing catches fire, drop to the ground and roll around while covering your face with your hands. Never extinguish a cooking fire with water or try to move the pot. Instead, cover it with an appropriate sized lid to cut off the fireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s source of oxygen. Use a fire extinguisher if necessary and call the fire department, even if the fire seems to have gone out. After all, you can never be too cautious.

Make sure your home has large numbers on the front so the fire department can see and easily read

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overload extension cords or run them underneath rugs.

Spencerville man’s journey in Sicily comes to an end By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

Lifestyle - Philip Bury, of Spencerville, is now back home, but had been marching across Sicily as part of Operation Husky 2013 earlier this summer. The operation commemorated the 70th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Sicily during World War II, and Philip took part in commemoration of his own father, who took part and was wounded, notes Philip’s son Eric in an email. “I’m taking on this journey in remembrance of my father who walked on this very same soil. In honour of him, I will

be carrying his haversack,” noted Philip in the profile appearing on the Operation Husky 2013 website. Philip has been writing letters home and the St. Lawrence News EMC has been featuring those letters as a lead-up to a feature story on Philip’s journey. This is the final portion of the last letter. Please watch upcoming issues for a feature as the St. Lawrence News EMC sits down with Philip to speak about his experience.

ication of a Canadian exhibit in the WW II museum in Catania. Until now, the museum featured excellent depictions and artifacts of Italian, German, American and British forces, but no mention of the Canadians. No longer. Dr. Andrew Gregory, brother of our ringleader Steve, with the help of local historians, has assembled a Canadian exhibit that leaves no doubt. Speeches, mutual thanks, and Husky 2013 is complete. Not really over, because the memories last and the story July 31 that we are here to tell still needs tellOur last event is the opening and ded- ing. But we have done what we came

to do. We’ve marched in the footsteps of our forebears for about 350km. Not every one of us has done every step: I for one have missed many for a variety of reasons and only a handful have done every mile. But the team has done it. We have planted and dedicated 562 memorial markers to soldiers and airmen who fell in Sicily; three to the many lost at sea and in the air before the landings; a number to the Italian soldiers who fell; and 24 to the Italian families of Agira we know to have died. We’ve taken part in 19 acts of remembrance in as many towns that were liberated by our troops.

I’ve seen grown men in tears on more occasions than I can remember. Every one of us has gained a deeper and more solemn sense of the sacrifices made by so many so long ago, and of the dreadful destruction of war. Aug. 1 The support team will stay for a day to finish up, but most of us disperse. I’ve made good friends whom I hope to keep. I’ve walked close to the footsteps of my father, and of his comrades some of whom lie here still. I have a renewed appreciation for those of my countrymen who came here 70 years ago. Steve Gregory, whose seven years of dedication have made this all happen, says that no thanks are due to him, only to those whom we are here to remember. He has a point, and we owe them more thanks than we can ever express. But my fellow participants and I owe thanks to Steve for giving us this opportunity. All Canadians owe him thanks for telling this story. Nos Memor, Philip

The latest trends in paint colours Are you wondering what the latest color trends are in interior decorating? If so, here’s what’s new: mixing warm and cold tones

will be all the rage in 2013-2014, a combination that will bring newfound freedom to how we harmonize colors. Here is a brief update

for those who like to keep their home décor in synch with the top trends. The dramatic trend for the coming months will see yellow and blue

adorning our walls. These two dynamic colours are often used in interior decorating; in fact yellow, which made an initial comeback in 2012, will continue to lend radiance to our homes in 2014. If you want to create a designer look, choose a lemon yellow combined with dark grey and black. Alternatively, mustard or honey yellow will be popular as well; blended with the reddish tones of walnut or mahogany furniture or with wine-coloured accessories, these tones are sure to please. After the joyful tones of yellow come the blues to warm our hearts. Often considered a cold colour, shades like lavender blue, duck egg blue, royal blue, and periwinkle will blend perfectly with strong, saturated colours such as red, pink, or yellow.

The spearhead of this latest trend is navy blue, which blends perfectly with off-whites and luminous greys to transform architectural features such as chimneypieces, staircases, or headboards.

FTCA is recipient of two prizes at JMC Annual General Meeting suring the continuity of the movement by recruiting new volunteers. That same evening, Saturday, Sept. 14, long-time volunteer and member of the FTCA executive committee, John Fischl, was the recipient of the regional award by M. Joseph Rouleau, C.C., G.O.Q., Dr h.c., president of JMC Board of Directors, and Mme Danièle LeBlanc, JMC executive and artistic director. He was nominated by Marilyn White, past chair, FTCA, who recruited Fischl during her administration in November 2006. In her letter of recommendation, White wrote about Fischl: “…In March 2007, John volunteered to work on FTCA’s annual grant application to the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) and

for five years he has been extremely successful in advocating for increased grant amounts from the OAC, as well as from other agencies. Without these grants, the FTCA is unable to function properly. We believe his efforts in this area should be recognized, and we recommend John for his dedication to bringing JMC’s fine music to our small rural community.” In the absence of Fischl at the AGM, Michèle Harding , representing the FTCA, accepted the award on his behalf. The award will be presented to Fischl at the upcoming FTCA concert which will be held on Oct. 4, at 8 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Church. For more information please visit the website at www.ftca.ca.

Playhouse’s classic love story will melt your heart Salt-Water Moon runs Oct. 11 – Nov. 2 Arts – For anyone who has ever been young and in love, the Thousand Islands Playhouse production of SaltWater Moon will capture your heart. Set in Newfoundland in 1926, this timeless love story takes the Springer Theatre stage on Oct. 11 – the final show of the Playhouse’s 2013 season. Directed by The Thousand Islands Playhouse’s artistic director Ashlie Corcoran, this touching story by acclaimed playwright David French follows 18-year-old Jacob (Edward Charette) who has returned to his tiny hometown hoping to win back his former sweetheart. But Mary (Shannon Taylor) is still hurt by Jacob’s abrupt departure a year before. Though the beautiful altwater moon works its magic on the lovers, Mary will not easily be wooed… “I love this play because of the fire that these two characters create together,” says Director Ashlie Corcoran. “This is a beautiful and moving love story about young people searching for their paths, encountering challenges, joy and desire along the way.” This production will transport audiences across the country with a true Newfoundland set design by Elizabeth Nutting, and back to 1926 with costume designs by Jayne Christopher. Lighting design is by Michael Walton, sound de-

sign by John Gzowski and stage management by Natasha Bean-Smith. Apprentice stage management is by Kyle Beres and assistant direction is by Ari Weinberg. The services of Ari Weinberg were made possible through Theatre Ontario’s Professional Theatre Training Program, funded by the Ontario Arts Council. In conjunction with this production, the Thousand Islands Playhouse is proud to present a retrospective exhibit on the life and works of playwright David French, created by the National Arts Centre (NAC) English Theatre in association with Theatre Museum Canada. The exhibit combines rare artifacts, images and text to examine the history of Photo by MARLA DOWDALL French’s work and his far-reaching influence in the development of English Emmanuel Dizwani, Youth VolCanadian Theatre. unteer Crew (YVC) coordinator, Show times: Tuesday - Saturday 8 p.m.; matinees: Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday 2:30 p.m. (Starting Wednesday after opening night).

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

There’s plenty on ‘to-do’ list around house during autumn months Business – The beginning of October not only marks the beginning of fall but the crisp mornings and cool evenings are a reminder that much of the coming months will be spent indoors. According to Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association, preparing your home for the fall/winter will help ensure your home is safe, efficient and comfortable in the coming months. To Dorner, “When it comes to safety, make sure to have your furnace inspected by a licensed heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) contractor, clean (or replace) your natural gas furnace filter, test your smoke alarms

and Carbon Monoxide (CO) detector, and get your fireplace inspected and serviced, if necessary.” In terms of efficiency and comfort, a simple checklist will help you keep track of the housekeeping tasks that will help keep your home comfortable (and warm) this fall/winter. Bear in mind that according to Hydro One, up to 40 per cent of home heat loss is due to air leakage so ensuring that your home is properly sealed is key to preventing heat from escaping and keeping the cold air out. Indoor Spaces: • Launder or dry-clean blankets • Replace warm-weather bedding and

clothing with cool-weather bedding and • Turn off your outside water supply efficient will help keep you and your clothing from the inside, while leaving outside family comfortable this fall. • Rotate lightweight curtains, rugs, taps open Submitted by the Ontario Real Estate and throws for heavier ones Making sure your home is safe and Association. • Consider replacing old windows and doors with new energy efficient options PARK IT! – look for the Energy Rating (ER) that Real Estate Brokerage takes into account window size, glazing, Leave your car at COMMERCIAL RESIDENTIAL home for frame construction and spacers a day, week or Outdoor Spaces: Ralph Sheldon Orlando a month! • Clean gutters and windows Legere Cook Spicer Broker Sales Sales • Scrub porch floors, decks, patios, Representative Representative of Record Try walking or the driveway, and walkways, cover air Direct: Direct: Direct: 613-246-1596 613-803-0945 613-340-9424 biking.

Area boy diagnosed with rare immune deficiency disorder Benefit concert planned for Frankville family Oct. 11 in Toledo By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As young Kael Morrison plays outside on his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm in Frankville recently, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to imagine the happy little boy has been diagnosed with a rare, and potentially fatal, immune deficiency disease. The six-year-old, who attends Meadowview Public School in Addison, is one of five known people in the world to be diagnosed with Stat 1 mutation. Kael is one of two currently living, the other a three-year-old boy living in Tokyo. The disease is terminal and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the possibility he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live past the age of 12. However, his best chance at extending his life is a bone marrow transplant. In a stroke of luck, his four-year-old brother Eamon is a bone marrow match and will be his donor when he heads to SickKids Hospital Nov. 1 for the transplant. Kaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, Emily and Andrew Morrison, are hoping their personal story will encourage more people to become bone marrow donors and help save lives. According to Canadian Blood Services,

While pregnant with Eamon, Emily was referred to the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (CHEO) infectious diseases department where the doctors determined Kael had herpes. The following week, they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so sure in their diagnosis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two weeks after, another doctor called who had seen Kaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blood work and noticed something off about his immune system,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were given a regime for bathing and two different kinds of oral medicine and were to call the second we saw anything.â&#x20AC;? That medicine seemed to do the trick. The period between Kaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flare ups stretched from two weeks, to three and four, until he was infection free for three months. Emily said Kael often complained of headaches, sore legs and would tire easier than the other kids, but she and Andrew initially thought they were just symptoms of growing pains. Doctors were still concerned with his failing immune system and Kael was then referred to the immunology department at Sick Kids Hospital. Emily found out he had lost his immunity to measles and

which also operates OneMatch, a stem cell and marrow network that services the country, 70 per cent of people who need a stem cell transplant donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find one within their family. Emily said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important for people to register with the network. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully our story will move people, even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one, to become a donor and change someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Being a donor proves that anyone can be a life saver and make a difference,â&#x20AC;? Emily noted. She said many people sign organ donation cards but being a bone marrow donor has a short recovery period. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re down for about a week and then back to normal,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is important and people on the other side really do appreciate it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your only shot.â&#x20AC;? Long road Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken a number of years of tests and consultations with doctors until Kael was finally diagnosed with the disorder on his fifth birthday. Emily said it all started when he was 18 months of age and began getting yeast infections on his face and mouth. He was prescribed rounds of antibiotics, but the condition would reappear after two weeks.

had contracted tetanus more times than he should have. “Just before he turned three, we started going to Sick Kids (Hospital) every six months and they would take blood work. They’d take 16 vials every time and would run all these tests for genetic disorders,” Emily said. Then, on Kael’s fifth birthday, doctors asked Emily to come to Toronto for a special visit. Emily and her sister Lacey took Kael for the appointment as Andrew, was planting crops at home. It was then that doctors officially diagnosed Kael with an immune deficiency disorder. Emily noted there are five classes of disorders, including HIV and severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). “Doctors don’t know where on the spectrum he is and they don’t know when he got sick or how sick he was going to get. They said we just have to wait,” she said. With Andrew on speakerphone, the doctor told them Kael’s condition was terminal “and they don’t see him living past the age of 12,” Emily stated. “This is a kid who might often have a runny nose, but he’s not a sickly kid,” she continued. “I said ‘You’re telling me that the healthy little boy running around, smiling, that I have six years with him?’” Benefit concert Doctors said that Kael’s best chance is a bone marrow transplant done when he is healthy, said Emily. They received news of Eamon’s match in July, which she referred to as a blessing. “If you don’t have a match in the family, it’s next to impossible to find one,” she explained. The operation requires extensive preparation, including 10 days of chemotherapy drugs and isolation for Kael, prior to surgery. Emily and Andrew will be staying with him for the month before the transplant is performed. “Then, after the surgery, we wait four weeks until the transplant takes over his system, but that whole time he has to be in isolation, in a sterile environment,” Emily said.

Eamon’s part will be done through day surgery and marrow will be taken from his hip bone. He will face some slight discomfort for a week after the surgery. “He’s only four though, so we’re not sure, emotionally, how he will handle it, but he should be healed after a week,” Emily stated. Kael will have to stay in Toronto for up to six months following the transplant and Emily and Andrew will be taking turns staying with him. Family members will help care for their other children back home. They will all communicate via email, Skype and video messaging. Due to the living expenses and transportation costs, which are expected to be substantial, close family and friends have banded together to organize a benefit concert featuring popular ‘50s and ‘60s rock and roll band, the Fabulous BelAirs, at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 475 in Toledo on Friday, Oct. 11. The event runs from 8 p.m. to midnight and will also feature raffle prizes. Tickets are not available in advance, but a $10 minimum donation is being asked for in lieu of admission per person at the door. All proceeds from the concert will go directly to Kael’s hospitalization costs. The legion is donating the hall and the Fabulous BelAirs are also waiving their performance fee. A.R.T. Studio will provide sound and lighting. Emily indicated that the funds will go towards parking and hotel fees, as well as the costly medications Kael will have to be on following his transplant. They are hoping to cut down on costs by staying at Ronald McDonald House, and are currently on a waiting list. For more information on the benefit concert or to help in any way, contact Lacey Knapp at 613-803-0137. Those who aren’t able to attend the concert but still wish to make a donation can do so at any CIBC branch throughout the area. A trust has been set up in Kael Morrison’s name and the account number is 23-79139.

Join in for a Coffee Break for Alzheimer Disease

News - A dreaded thief is lurking amongst us. A thief that is silent, sneaky and preys mostly on older folks. A thief that steals our most precious possession, a possession which has no monetary value but is, in fact, priceless. The justice system cannot punish the perpetrator, no matter how much the victim wishes it could. The thief I refer to has a name; the name is Alzheimer’s Disease. Alzheimer’s steals the mind and memory. As we go about our daily lives, we communicate by words and gestures, we socialize, and we take care of our own personal needs. Sometimes we forget where we left our keys, or we forget a name; we tend to joke about “losing it”. For the person who is showing the early signs of Alzheimer’s Disease, it is nothing to joke about. Alzheimer’s has no known cause, has no cure and cannot be reversed. My personal experience with family and friends has shown how demanding the condition can be. According to the World Alzheimer’s Report 2012, stigma and social exclusion are major barriers for people with Alzheimer’s. The full report is available on the Leeds-Grenville site, www.alzheimer.ca/lg. Fundraising is an on-going need and Coffee Break will be coming to a location near you in October. Last year’s event held at The Junction Restaurant, Hwy 15/32, raised over $700 for this area. Funds raised here stay here to support families and patients with AD. The Leeds and Grenville goal this year is $17,000 and you can play a part in achieving it. Join your friends and neighbours at a Coffee Break and be generous. The thief is lurking in the shadows and is waiting to steal our mind and our memory, our real treasures. The thief cannot be stopped without the vigilance and help of all Canadians.

Blackhawks kick-off season with back-to-back tilts against Prescott Old Timers this weekend Sports – As if it wasn’t enough that the Island City Blackhawks host their arch rival Prescott Old Timers on their opening night, they then have to charter out of town to Prescott after the game to play the second half of the home-and-home the very next morning. That’s two games versus the Prescott Old Timers in less than 14 hours. Not a bad way to open up the Blackhawks’ 37-game schedule and their 24th season. “Wow, let the fireworks begin, it’s Game On baby,” Blackhawk management stated at the annual start of the season press conference. The Blackhawks spent the last two Saturday nights in their training camp, scrimmaging in preparation for the upcoming season. “The first night the guys were just finding their legs, last Saturday night the pace and the intensity was ramped up a notch or two in anticipation for the games to finally begin,” management continued. “Let the games begin, Saturday and Sunday is going to be awesome. I can’t wait to get going,” expressed Daryl ‘Stumpy’ Whiteland who is feeling healthy and is ready to go. “It’s going to be wild playing Prescott back to back. We already have an intense rivalry with these guys, this is definitely going to add to it for sure. Two games in 14 hours, what a way to start the season,” said Blackhawks’ team captain J R Ryan. The Blackhawks are out to rebound from their dismal 2012-13 season where they sported a 12-20-3 record. Included in that record was a team-high 12-game losing streak. The Broadway Avenue Boys were fortunate

to have righted the ship somewhat at the end of last season with a six-game winning streak. “We’re hoping to build off that for sure. We’ve added a couple of key players to the mix in Chris Cavanagh and the ever smiling Tyler Markell. But on the flip side we lost our top defenceman Mike Mulder and another of our team’s solid d-man, Travis Cauley has been reduced to Spare status,” management explained to reporters outside to the team’s lockerroom. Defence could be an area of concern for the Island City crew. “We are looking for a stud d-man to solidify our d-corps. We’ve been working the phones lately and are close to a major announcement.”

The Hawks have the ‘My Generation’ line back intact for this season. The line features Jeff June, Daryl Whiteland and Jordy Whiteland. The ‘Scorpio’ line is back together for their third season and big things are once again expected from this trio of Wayne Morrow, Rob Carter and J R Ryan. The final trio will feature at least Josh Brayton and Trevor Murray, the tricky part here is we have anyone of three guys that could fill the final spot. Peter Culp, Chris Cavanagh and Tyler Markell all have the unique ability to play good on either defence or forward. As of now, Fred Dunnington and Hugh Murray are the only defencemen we have secured. “Once we sort out our defence situation we’ll be good to go. Spence looked good in goal during training camp. He’s looking to rebound from a sub par season for him,” management explained. Game time this Saturday night is 9 p.m. at the Youth Arena and the next morning in Prescott puck drop is slated for 9:30 a.m. The Island City Blackhawks team wants to announce that they now have a team page on Facebook thanks to Jeff June. This will feature player profiles, ‘where are they now?’ and player comments about recently played games. “We are going to have some fun with this page, the guys are all excited about it and so am I. We have been talking about doing this for a while now. We’re up and ready to go so come on and join us,” June said about the new team Facebook page.

Lifestyle - Boating in the fall offers colourful vistas, quiet anchorages and excellent fishing but it is not without its challenges that necessitate self-sufficiency and taking some additional precautions to keep from running into trouble. The Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) and the Ontario Federation of Anglers & Hunters want to remind all boaters enjoying the fall season on the water to follow these tips to ensure that their excursions are both safe and enjoyable. Before heading out, be sure to check the weather forecast. The mixing of warm and cold air can quickly spawn high winds and waves making it treacherous for small boats. Fog, too, is an issue at this time of year making visibility difficult. Should boaters find themselves in a fog bank, they should proceed slowly and sound their horn at regular intervals to alert other boaters of their presence. Well into October, daytime temperatures can occasionally be balmy but dressing for the water temperature will help slow the onset of hypothermia should the unexpected happen and the boater find himself in the water. Accidental cold water immersion can be shocking, but they shouldn’t panic. It may take a minute or so to get their breathing under control after the initial shock but they will have at least 10-15 minutes, even in very cold water, to affect self-rescue

before they start to lose muscle control in their arms and legs. This is where an approved lifejacket, either inflatable or inherently buoyant, is an essential part of a boater’s wardrobe to keep them afloat after they can no longer swim. In the fall, there are fewer boats on the water to offer assistance, if needed. Boaters should be sure to leave a float plan with a responsible person on shore who will know what to do if they’re overdue. A marine radio or cell phone will allow them to call for assistance should the need arise. Having a few tools and spare parts aboard will also allow them to fix minor problems that might otherwise cause them to be stranded out on the water. It’s important that boaters ensure that their boat and engine are in good shape and mechanically sound. Ethanol-based fuel can allow water contamination in the tank. The use of a fuel additive prevents water in the fuel line from freezing which could cause the engine to chug to a halt. If the boat has portable fuel tanks, it’s a good idea to have a spare on board as a reserve. When boaters head out, they should be wary of reduced water levels that can result after a long, hot and dry summer season. Some of a boater’s favourite shallow water fishing holes may be inaccessible at this time of year. Also, while underway, they should keep a sharp lookout for debris and chunks of ice that could pen-

etrate the boat’s hull at speed. “Spectacular colours, peaceful solitude and the crispness of the air make boating in the fall a wondrous experience,” says Jean Murray, chair of the Canadian Safe Boating Council. “To make the most of this experience safely, however, boaters need to be extra diligent in their preparations before departing. Most important of these are checking the weather, dressing for the water temperature, wearing a lifejacket and leaving a float plan with a responsible person on shore who can call for help should the need arise.” “Anglers and hunters in Ontario are fortunate to have many opportunities available to them during the fall months,” comments Angelo Lombardo, executive director of the Ontario Federation of Anglers & Hunters. “Whether it’s waterfowl hunting or late season fishing opportunities, there is still a lot of excitement to be had on the water. However, keep in mind that the weather can change quickly this time of year. Dress appropriately and be prepared for the unexpected.” Now that fall is here, boaters should make the most of what’s left of the boating season before the cold weather hits. By exercising a little caution and an ability to be self-sufficient when out on the water, they can more fully enjoy nature’s splendour and quiet waterways.

Events – The Morton Community Hall Board is running a fundraiser for the Community Hall at 13 Judd Street, Morton starting at noon on Oct. 5. Guest speaker Simon Lunn is offering a slide presentation and short commentary to help everyone discover the wonders of nature on Rock Dunder, located off Stanley Lash Road, and Highway 15 in Morton. Rock Dunder is land owned and maintained by the Rideau Waterway Land Trust and encourages donations in their “Honest John Box’ located at the start of the trails. “Nature deficit is one of the main concerns with our youth and adults now. We spend way too much time indoors looking at some form of screen (TV, iPad, smart phone, etc.) and do not get enough fresh air and sunshine,” explained Sue Dunfield, Manager of Community and Leisure Services with the Township of Rideau Lakes. “This Saturday is promising sunshine and warm autumn weather - so there will be no need for a rain date as previously suggested. We hope everyone will take advantage of Hike The Rock Day, join us for lunch, Simon’s fascinating slide show and talk and then take the hike to the top of Rock Dunder.” For more information call 1-800-928-2250.

The End of Life Information Symposium is being hosted by Brockville General Hospital (BGH), the Brockville and District Association for Community Involvement, the Southeastern Ontario Regional Ethics Network, the Ontario Long Term Care Association, and Dying with Dignity. “The interest in such an event was made clear to us in June,” says BGH President & CEO Tony Weeks. “Since that time, a planning committee was created. All partners were immediately supportive and enthusiastic about creating an information event for the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville on the important issues of end of life ethics, decision-making and care.” Keynote speaker for the event will be Dr. Udo Schuklenk, Professor of Philosophy at Queen’s University in Kingston and Ontario Research Chair in Bioethics. Three other speakers from different areas of end-of-life issues are to be confirmed in the near future. “It’s a big topic and an important one,” says Weeks. “We are pleased to be able to work collectively to bring a well-rounded information session to the people of this community.” ST.
