Brockville and Area Food Bank completes renovations By DOREEN BARNES

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There are many new beginnings for the Brockville and Area Food Bank, which celebrated with the community during an open house event, Friday, Oct. 4. That day, dignitaries, volunteers and the public came together to see the newly renovated Brockville and Area Food Bank depot. During the celebration the amount raised by the public was unveiled on the back inside wall of the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was incredibly overwhelmed by the donations made by over 200 individuals in our community,â&#x20AC;? announced â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Growing Bigger to Give Betterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; campaign chair, Catherine Deplaedt, as the green-covered numbers were removed showing $185,844, as the amount raised. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very excited to say that we are ready to share the newly renovated Brockville and Area Food Bank with our community,â&#x20AC;? announced Deplaedt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are also officially launching our

new name, The Brockville and Area Food Bank and our new logo.â&#x20AC;? As people gathered in the storage area of the Food Bank, Deplaedt welcomed all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing to be standing here in this room that last year at this time was only a dream, now it is a reality,â&#x20AC;? said Deplaedt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The total project cost was $520,000.â&#x20AC;?

This project was achieved with the support of the Federal Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund ($258,500), the Ontario Trillium Foundation ($124,500), the 1000 Islands Community Development Corporation (additional $24,000 towards the purchase of a cooler and freezer), and the public ($140,000). â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we set out to raise $140,000, we knew we were embarking on an incredible challenge,â&#x20AC;? said Deplaedt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However the response from this community has been astounding.â&#x20AC;? Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown echoed sentiments which everyone in the room felt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all wish we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need food banks,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are important facilities in the communities like Brockville, to help those who are truly in need. I was really delighted to find out the good news that this project was to be funded to almost $260,000. It was one of the biggest announcements in this part See FOOD page 2

August, when it was so hot and we were trying not to trip on pallets and boxes. So to walk around this building today and to see the siding, new roof, the food storage and to see that this has happened so quickly has been just amazing.” Heately continued to say that no one wants food banks, but want food security; to eat, live well and support the community. Each month about 500 families access this food bank to receive a four to five day emergency supply of food. “This renovation will provide us with the ability to increase the quantity and most important the quality of food that we are able to provide to those families,” stated Deplaedt. “Having a walk in cooler and walk-in freezer will dramatically change the nutritional value of the foods we are able to provide.” Also, Deplaedt recognized Don and

Shirley Green for their leadership in the capital campaign launch with a donation of $25,000. As the event was winding down, a cheque presentation was made by representatives of RBC – Royal Bank Financial, Darlene Lawson and Glen Kelsey presented a cheque for $5,000 to help fund the collection of grocery bags. Final touches According to Operation Harvest Share chair JoAnne Sytsma, there will be some final touches to the building before it is stocked with food. “The guys have to finish mudding and

painting the ceiling white,” said Sytsma. “Essentially it is done.” The stacked racking which occupied one corner of the building was donated by Shell Canada and will be assembled and installed by a company from Burlington, which Shell Canada is also paying for. With the new floor layout and addition of tables in the centre, it will be much easier for volunteers to sort the pallets of food, whether for the shelves or the cooler and freezer. “The freezer and cooler are eight by 10 and I can probably fit four or five pallets in there,” said Sytsma. “Now that

we have the capacity to receive more food, our food allotment will increase.” Fall food drive The Rotary Fall Food Drive started Wednesday, Oct. 9 and runs through to Saturday, Oct. 12, 12 noon to 5:30 p.m. daily. A transport will be parked at the south end of the Canadian Tire parking lot waiting to accept filled grocery bags. The public can fill grocery bags at various stores in Brockville. The goal for this year is 18,000 pounds of food. Brockville, you can do it!

Another individual who said a few words was Betsy Heately, regional representative for the Ontario Trillium Foundation. “When this file came forward, I was so proud for Brockville,” said Heately. “I can remember being out here (in the Food Bank storage area) with Myra, Catherine and Karen in the middle of

Fundraising bake sale, concerts support young boy with rare disease take place at the Mallorytown Legion the following Saturday, Oct. 19, from 8 p.m.-12 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door. Entertainment will be provided by the Picket Fences Band. Many prizes will be raffled off. Contact information for this event is Jo-Ann at 613-923-5111. Both volunteers as well as donations would be greatly appreciated for these events. All proceeds will go to the Kael Morrison fundraising account. 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. The disease is terminal and there’s the possibility he won’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 fouryear-old brother Eamon is a bone marrow match and will be his donor when he heads to SickKids Hospital Nov. 1 for the transplant. Kael will have to stay in Toronto for up to six months

following the transplant and his parents Emily and Andrew Morrison will be taking turns staying with him. Family members will help care for their other children back home. Due to the living expenses and transportation costs, which are expected to be substantial, close family and friends have

banded together to host a number of fundraising events. A benefit concert featuring popular ‘50s and ‘60s rock and roll band, the Fabulous BelAirs, has also been organized for tomorrow night (Friday, Oct. 11) at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 475 in Toledo. 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. A trust has been set up in Kael Morrison’s name and the account number is 23-79139. With files from Ashley Kulp.

formed and engaged in this discussion well before OPP costs are submitted to council. There may not be time for discussion after. People should know that last year when Perth was going through the costing process, their council moved very quickly to accept the OPP costing. On June 5, 2012 the OPP costing was released. Two public meetings were held on June 7 and 12. Following the June 12 public meeting a “Committee of the Whole” approved acceptance of the OPP costing and on June 26 full council passed a motion to accept the OPP costing. Only 21 days from release of OPP costing to approval by Perth council. This would not be acceptable to the citizens of Brockville. Last week’s sub-committee meeting between city council and OPP representative Sgt. Michael Milner also included some important content of which citizens not present should be aware. Mr. Yee, Chair of the Brockville Police Services Board (BPSB) raised the question of a moratorium on OPP costs until the direction on Billing Reform is finalized. Sgt. Milner could not provide information on this question. This is the same issue that has the current process on hold. Councillor Mike Kalivas asked if Brockville signed a Stand Alone Contract with the OPP, could

the OPP still direct the Brockville resources from Brockville if needed somewhere else. Sgt. Michael Milner responded that the OPP always has the ability to redirect resources as needed under a Stand Alone Model or an Integrated Model. Regarding the commercial Criminal Check revenue of approximately $900,000 that Brockville Police Services receives annually, OPP’s Milner was asked if the OPP would provide this service if resources were included in the Brockville contract. Milner replied, “Categorically No.” Lastly, the release notes the committee is very pleased that council voted 9-1 to proceed with a Regional Policing option with Prescott, Augusta Township and Elizabethtown-Kitley Township. Mayor Henderson was the only member of council voting against this motion. Citizens Offering Police Support are in favour of looking at all options for cost effective policing of the community. It is expected that a decision on a moratorium on OPP costing until Billing Reform is finalized will occur shortly. After this decision is announced COPS will schedule its next public meeting.

OPP defers new costing negotiations By DOREEN BARNES

News – On Friday, Oct. 4, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) announced it would be deferring contract renewal discussions with municipalities. This delay will be until the new billing model for municipal policing services is released by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services. No specific date for the new model has been revealed. Those municipalities with contracts expiring before Jan. 1, 2015 have two options. To amend the municipality’s current contract to continue until the new billing model is ready (Section 10 of the Police Service Act), or let the contract expire and be policed by the OPP on a non-contractual basis (Section 5.1 of the Police Service Act) until the new billing model is ready. “There will be no discernible change in service,” said OPP commissioner Chris Lewis. “We ask that the municipalities be patient during the transition period to the new billing model.” According to Brockville Mayor David Henderson, it does not make sense to go forward with a costing for Brockville while the billing process is actually changing. “They put us on hold,” said Henderson. “So we will sit on the sidelines while they have these discussions. We will get a lot of information about policing from the process and incredible amount of information about the costing in this process because now 300-plus communities will be involved in this discussion and we will sit on the sidelines listening in.”

The Citizens Offering Police Support (COPS) committee leader Louise Severson said this group would be meeting next week to discuss the latest news regarding the deferring of contract renewals with municipalities. He feels by paying attention to this dialogue, municipalities will hear the pros and cons. “You know that with the new billing process, like any system there will be winners and losers,” added Henderson. “There will be some communities that will pay more than they pay now and some that will pay less than they are paying now. With us on the sidelines we will have to sit there and try to evaluate how their system will affect ours.”

Continuing, Henderson explained that when the moratorium is lifted, the council at that time will have to decide what direction it will take and who knows when that will be. Depending on how long it takes the Ministry of Community Safety and Correction Services to find the appropriate straight forward formula for all municipalities, the decision in Brockville will be made by the current council or the next council following next fall’s municipal elections. “We have to wait, listen, learn and see,” said Henderson. “If anything, it is a benefit to us that there will be much more information out there and we’ll have a much better analysis of it, we will learn much more and it will be an even more informed decision.” As far as Citizens Offering Police Support (COPS) committee, leader Louise Severson indicated COPS will be having a meeting next week to discuss this further. “When the committee started, almost a year ago, the research told us that across Ontario, municipalities were not happy with the way the costing was going,” said Severson, “and municipalities have formed coalitions to lobby the province to change the costing formula. So this really comes as no surprise to the committee.” She went on to say that it (review of billing) was a great thing for municipalities. “I think it is advantageous for the community because now with the regional policing issue on the table, it will give them more time to look at all

aspects of policing, so that a quick decision isn’t made and our police force is gone, never to return. I think it is an advantage for all, both council and committee.” Severson shared that, in her mind, it may be the next incoming Brockville

City Council that will be making this major decision whether to retain the current police force. “It’s probably going to be the next council that looks at the decision making on this issue,” said Severson.

Report affirms need for outside treatment, Runciman says

News – The latest report by Canada’s prison watchdog provides compelling proof that Corrections Canada needs outside help in coping with mentally ill female offenders, Senator Bob Runciman said Sept. 30. The special report by the Correctional Investigator of Canada, released that day, focused on eight female inmates with records of repeated incidents of self-harm. It found the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) has made little progress in the six years since 19-yearold Ashley Smith killed herself in her cell as guards stood outside. This despite tens of millions of dollars pumped into CSC’s mental health strategy. The report contrasted the treatment the women received in federal prisons – physical restraints and segregation being common responses – with the more effective clinical approaches employed by community facilities such as the Brockville Mental Health Centre. “We’ve known for some time that federal prisons are an inappropriate place for seriously mentally ill offenders and

this report reinforces that,” Runciman noted in a release. “But it also talks about approaches that work, in places like Brockville. Now it’s up to CSC to listen and to take the appropriate action.” Runciman has long advocated for a secure treatment unit for female offenders modeled after the highly successful St. Lawrence Valley Correctional and Treatment Centre, a 100-bed unit for provincially incarcerated male offenders, which is located at the Brockville Mental Health Centre site and operated by the Royal Ottawa Health Care Group. “This report makes clear that the clinical approach taken in Brockville results in fewer incidents of self-harm than the security-centred response that occurs in a federal prison,” Runciman said. “Corrections Canada needs to recognize reality and adopt an approach that provides better treatment for these women and, ultimately, enhances public safety.” The full report is available on the Correctional Investigator’s website, www.oci-bec.gc.ca.

Curbside Collecon of Leaves Curbside collecon of leaves will take place on your regular waste collecon day during the following 2 weeks: October 21st to October 25th and then again on November 11th to November 15th, 2013. To ensure fast collecon and less waste, residents are encouraged to use re-usable containers or kra paper bags for leaf waste. Using plasc bags generates waste which must be disposed of and slows down collecon since the bags must be removed before the leaves are placed in the collecon truck. Plasc bags will sll be accepted, but your voluntary cooperaon to avoid them is appreciated by the City and the collecon contractor. Please ensure that only leaves are placed in the containers and bags for collecon and that no garbage or brush is included.

Put a composter in your backyard or use your green bin to reduce household waste. Composting organics has two key benefits: it reduces the amount of waste going to landfills and when added to your garden, helps nourish soil and plants.

Place leaves at the curb no later than 7 a.m. on your regular waste collecon day during either of the 2 weeks listed above. Ensure that the bags of leaves are placed in a separate pile from your weekly refuse and that they weigh less than 22 Kg. (50 pounds). Due to the volume of leaves being collected, if your leaves are not picked up on your actual collecon day please leave them at the curb as they will be collected later. Leaves and brush may also be brought to the Gord Was composng site at 251 North Augusta Road. Leaves are free to drop off but a small fee applies to brush as it must be ground up prior to composng. Compost site hours and rates are on the waste collecon calendar, on the City web-site (www.city.brockville.on.ca) or by calling (613)342-8772 extension 8220. The site will close November 29th for the winter season.

Space provided through a partnership between industry and Ontario municipalies to support waste diversion programs.

Gananoque BIA discusses ways to take advantage of what downtown has to offer while looking ahead to the future By CONAN de VRIES

Business - The Gananoque BIA held its 35th annual general meeting last week to discuss ways in which better advantage can be taken of what the community’s downtown has to offer, and how the downtown can make the most of new development along the town’s waterfront. “We’re going to have more people living south of King Street in the next several years,” said councillor Bill Shepherd. “We need a downtown that keeps people here.” The view from a little further east was provided by keynote speaker Greg Hotte, the recently-hired manager of the Prescott BIA, who offered up his views on how he and the business community in the Fort Town hope to revitalize Prescott’s main street. “The similarities between Prescott and Gananoque are many,” he said. Prescott currently has 23 vacant storefronts along King Street, a remarkable number given the size of the town, and though Gananoque’s downtown isn’t as sparsely populated, the two communities do share some of the same struggles. Both Prescott and Gananoque are working to develop their waterfronts and are trying to marshal their considerable cultural and natural resources to attract new residents, tourists and business. But, as Hotte points out, it’s all well and

Production of Salt-Water Moon will surely melt your heart By JAN MURRAY

Entertainment - The final show for the Thousand Islands Playhouse 2013 season, Salt-Water Moon, hits the Springer Theatre stage on Oct. 11 and will run through until Nov. 2. Salt-Water Moon is a timeless love story, set in Newfoundland in 1926 that is certain to capture your heart. The audience will surely find themselves rooting for 18-year-old Jacob, played by Edward Charette, who has returned to his hometown to try to win back the love of his life that he so abruptly left a year earlier. However, his young sweetheart Mary, played by Shannon Taylor, has not yet forgotten her heartache and will not easily be wooed. With only two weeks of rehearsals, the production offered a few challenges. “First and foremost I think the accent is a tough one to kind of find,” explained Charette. Taylor agreed, “There are several dialects. To make ours sound specific and like we are from the same place was a challenge.” Taylor elaborated about one of the challenges with her character. “I think finding a balance between her fierceness as well as her pride as well as finding her humility and her humour so you will be able to relate to her, really to both characters.” Taylor describes her character, Mary Snow as an “independent 17-year-old, with a beautiful fire in her, and it’s a wonderful place to live in.” Adding, “I very much enjoy playing her.” The play pulls you in for a variety of reasons. For director Ashlie Corcoran, it was “a very earnest love story be-

Edward Charette and Shannon Taylor bring to life the characters of Jacob Mercer and Mary Snow in the Thousand Islands Playhouse production of Salt-Water Moon. This breathtaking love story takes the stage of the Springer Theatre on Oct. 11 and is a production you definitely don’t want to miss. Above are (front left to right) Edward Charette (Jacob Mercer), Shannon Taylor (Mary Snow), Ashlie Corcoran (director) and Debbie Bennett in back (marketing manager). tween two young people who have lost their way from each other and are, in an hour and a half of high stakes, figuring out if they are going to be together or not.”

Wednesday hikes resume at Mac Johnson

Events – Local radio personality and hiking enthusiast Bruce Wylie will be leading his Wednesday hikes (11 a.m. to noon) again this fall at Mac Johnson Wildlife Area. Meet at the Centennial Road parking lot by the big sign to join the hike. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes or boots and dress for the weather. It’s also a good idea to bring some drinking water and a snack. For more, visit www.cataraquiregion. on.ca or call 613-345-1990.

Becoming the character is a big part of learning the lines, the characteristics, the essence of the becoming this other person. Costumes are a huge part of becoming the character. Both Taylor and

Charette go to great lengths to make sure that they are wearing some part of their costume each and every day throughout rehearsal in order to help them ‘feel’ the part.

Taylor elaborates, “I wear a skirt every day of rehearsal. I won’t wear pants because it would instantly change how I would feel.” She continued, “we have little bits that help to remind us that we are not in 2013, walking around in my jeans.” Charette truly relates to his character admitting, “It’s a beautiful story. It’s hard to not get caught up in the magic of it.” Both Charette and Taylor have travelled to Gananoque from the Toronto area to make this production, and are in awe of this beautiful city. Taylor especially loves the scenic bike ride she enjoys every morning on her way in to rehearsal. “It’s a really vibrant place to come to work.” Previously actors had three weeks to learn all their lines, entrances and exits. For some time now though, live theatre provides only two weeks for actors to learn all this material. That however is certainly not evident in this play. This production captivates you right at the very first scene. It takes you back to 1926 and directly into the lives of Jacob and Mary. Part of this, Corcoran believes is due to the extensive rehearsing Taylor and Charette pour into their roles. It’s not just a 9-5. “It’s because actors are going home, working on their stuff, eating dinner, reading more lines.” Show times will be Tuesday – Saturday at 8 p.m. with matinees on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. beginning on the Wednesday after opening night.

DEAR EDITOR:

COMMENTARY

Add a voice to prevent a widespread problem Editorial – It’s not just a Canadian problem, it happens around the world. But we can add a voice against the growing evidence that abuse of children continues to happen, sometimes virtually in front of our very own eyes. Abuse includes the non-accidental inflicting of physical injury; physical, medical, educational or emotional neglect, sexual abuse; and substance abuse. There’s also the issue of sexual abuse or exploitation that stem from engaging in online activities, including chat rooms, texting and other social networks. With the heightened sophistication of the cyber playground, never has society been so alerted to the potential risks of predatorial behaviour. Yet, abuse is all around us. Last year alone, the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies received 165,673 referrals about possible abuse and neglect of children and youth. Many of these are related to socio-economic factors, as families struggle with poverty, poor mental health, substance abuse and social isolation, but many instances have little or nothing to do with poverty, as community members take advantage of children who, as expected, are often ill-equipped or unable to defend themselves. Community members need always to be vigilant of the signs of abuse, and to be a voice for the community, by listening to the signals provided by children and by reporting concerns to their local family and children’s service. October, as Child Abuse Prevention Month, is as good a time as any to remind ourselves and others that children need to grow up in a safe family environment. For more about the signs of abuse, visit wwwuseyourvoice.ca, and help protect Ontario’s children.

Making sauerkraut was a Haneman family tradition

Lifestyle - The big wood barrel had been scrubbed with hot soapy water and a brush, and put outside on the back stoop to sun-dry. It would take days for it to be as dry as a bone. And if the sky looked like a drop of rain might come down, the barrel was rolled into the summer kitchen until the threat was over. Dozens of big fat cabbages were already in the summer kitchen on a table Father had put together by putting three wide planks on two saw-horses. A new bag of coarse salt had been bought at Briscoe’s General Store. We were ready. This would be a Saturday night when there would be no going off to a house party, or having neighbours in for a game of cards. This night would be reserved for making sauerkraut, and the whole family would be doing the job. I had mixed feelings about the night we made the sauerkraut. Certainly when the whole family was working together brought me special joy, but being the youngest of the five children, my job was menial at best. All I was allowed to do was bring in more cabbages from the summer kitchen as they were needed. The old pine table had been stripped of its red and white, well-worn oilcloth, and the wood scrubbed clean by my

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

sister Audrey. All the chairs and benches had been moved back to the wall...there would be no sitting that night! Hands had been scrubbed with a brush and hot soapy water, and both Father and Mother wore long white pinny aprons for the job. When the work-night started, on the table close to one end, was the cabbage slicer. Father said it had been made by his great-great grandfather when he settled in Northcote generations ago. It looked like a long narrow wood box with no lid. And in the very bottom of the box was a sharp blade that Father said could be deadly if you accidentally ran your hand over it. The well-scrubbed barrel had been rolled into the kitchen right after supper, and it sat close to the table at one end. Straddling the barrel was the wood box Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

with the deadly blade, which also, of course, had been scrubbed within an inch of its life. Now it was time to bring in the cabbages from the summer kitchen...not all at once, of course. They were kept out as long as possible, so that when they were finally shredded, they would still be well chilled from being outside of the steaming hot kitchen. And that’s when I figured into the picture. It was my job to bring in the cabbages when Father announced he was ready for another one. This meant I was constantly running back and forth… inside, outside. And it meant I missed seeing most of the actual job of shredding the big pale green heads, which didn’t please me in the least. But back in those days, a young daughter did exactly what she was told. There was no negotiating with a brother or sister to change jobs! It was Emerson and Everett’s job to peel off the very top leaves of each head of cabbage. Not one leaf more than the very top ones, either. That would be sheer waste. Beside the table were two huge baskets, and into these baskets went the pulled-off outer leaves. They wouldn’t be tossed out in the back yard, where

garbage for which there could be found no other use (and that was very little indeed) was tossed. No, these baskets of leaves would go to feed the pigs. And this is where my youngest brother Earl came into the picture. It was his job to tear down the discarded cabbage into smaller pieces. That way, Father said, it was easier to make the feed go farther when it was finally tossed out to the pigs, mixed with other slop. My sister Audrey sliced off the very end of the cabbage with a sharp butcher knife, and that too was tossed into the baskets by the table. And then that head was passed on to Father. With spotlessly clean hands Father fed the head of cabbage into the wood box straddling the barrel, running it back and forth over the sharp blade, letting the finely shredded cabbage fall into the barrel. Mother used a block of wood attached to a short pole (Father’s creation), and every so often Father stopped shredding, as mother gently packed down the cabbage. Everything would come to a halt, and with a measuring cup dipped into the bag of coarse salt, Mother would spread in a goodly amount. For some reason I was never able to

fathom, the number of shredded cabbages was always enough to exactly fill the barrel! Not right to the top, of course, but with about 10 inches of what Father called ‘breathing room’. The very top of the shredded cabbage got the final toss of coarse salt, and then a well-scrubbed stone...the same one we used every year, was the last addition to the barrel. The stone would make sure the cabbage was on a steady pack-down. It took Father and three brothers to roll the barrel out to the summer kitchen. Of course, the sauerkraut would not be ready to eat until it had been well fermented, and was always best when the blasts of winter froze it solid. By then, which is something else I had trouble figuring out, the cabbage turned to sauerkraut had settled down into the barrel, and was considerably less, I thought than what had been put in that night in our kitchen. For days afterwards, I would sneak a peek into the barrel and would be met with the sharp tang of the fermenting cabbage. I would have a feeling of contentment come over me. Because now I knew, deep in that awful Depression, it didn’t matter how bad things got, we would at least have sauerkraut to put on the supper table.

Events - On Saturday, Oct. 19, an international summit on sustainable tourism will take place just east of Gananoque. The event is targeted towards all tourism businesses, DMOs, EDOs, tourism consultants as well as any and all government officials that are concerned with tourism. The event will be held at the Glen House Resort on the 1000 Islands Parkway. Sustainable tourism practitioners as well as industry experts from 10 countries and seven provinces including Canada, USA, Europe and even Japan, will come together to share their knowledge and practical lessons, sharing guidelines to tourism business and regions. On the agenda are six of the most respected international experts who have hands-on knowledge of the challenges as well as opportunities of sustainable tourism. Presenters include; • Erika Harms, VP marketing, Solimar International, • Tim O’Donoghue, Principal, Riverwind LLC, • Richard G. Edwards, International Consultant, Sustainable Tourism, • Seleni Matus, Senior Advisor, Sustainable Travel International, • Jonathan B. Tourtellot, Geotourism Editor, National Geographic Traveler, National Geographic Centre for Sustainable Destinations, as well as, • Gary Clark, Vice Chair, Canadian Biosphere Reserves Association. These speakers will elaborate on ways to reduce operation costs; how to make your destination more competitive as well as how to access tourism markets. Clarke, who is known as the “Father” of sustainable tourism will open the meeting and discuss programs and objectives before presenting the ‘role of biosphere reserves.’ “What we will point out is that this, sustainable tourism, has been indicated by the United Nations as the major market for tourism for the next two decades.” He will be followed by Tourtellot, and then Harms will discuss ‘Building credible businesses and destinations.’ O’Donoghue will discuss ‘transforming a destination’ and Edwards will present ‘marketing sustainable experiences.’ After lunch there will be a panel discussion presented by the five project leaders on ‘engaging the tourism industry,’ followed by Doug McLelland and Lyne Roberge of The McLellan Group presenting ‘Riverquest – A sustainable tourism initiative.’ Nearing the end of the day there will be a one hour workshop followed by a reception/networking period. For those who chose to stay for the entire day, dinner will be served at 6 p.m. followed by a presentation by Seleni Matus on ‘sustainable tourism, a growth opportunity in a highly competitive environment.’ Clarke points out “it’s a huge opportunity for people from the region to come and learn very practical information on how they can increase their business through this market opportunity.” The event is presented by The Frontenac Arch Biosphere and sponsored by Parks Canada, Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Air Transat, the Great Waterway, Tourism Industry Association of Ontario and the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce.

Shoeboxes for Seniors donation

News – For the past several years, Curves in Prescott has encouraged its clients to contribute to the Shoeboxes for Seniors in Chernobyl program. This year, the women at Curves collected 35 shoeboxes full of supplies and personal hygiene products, as well as $28 in pennies – all to be donated to impoverished seniors in Belarus still living in the area of the former Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Colleen Gray (left) dropped by the gym last week to pick up the collection from Curves owner Patricia Lalonde (second from left) and trainer Kristen Jessome. Also on hand was Greta Whitley (right), who, in the past two years, has made 26 warm, cozy and colourful quilts to go along with the shoeboxes.

Presentation on mental health and anti-stigma on Oct. 17 Events – Heather Stuart, chair holder of the recently created Bell Canada Mental Health and Anti-Stigma Research Chair, will present on stigma and mental illness Oct. 17 at CJ’s Banquet Hall in Brockville. Dr. Stuart, a professor of Community Health and Epidemiology in the Faculty of Health Sciences, has been fighting to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness since the late 1990s – working to describe and understand the experience of stigma from the inside, from the perspective of people who have a men-

tal illness and their families. The presentation is being hosted by Brockville General Hospital (BGH) Mental Health Services and the Mental Health and Addiction Coalition of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville. Also presenting is Garry Laws, executive director of the Mental Health Support Network. “With National Mental Illness Awareness Week in early October,” says Linda Peever, Director of BGH Mental Health Services, “we are especially pleased to have Dr. Stuart speak here in Brockville about her work with Bell. Certainly stig-

ma continues to be a major challenge for those struggling with mental illness and their family members.” The presentation will run from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., including a 30-minute question and answer session. The session is free and open to the public. Brockville General Hospital marks National Mental Illness Awareness Week Oct. 6 to 12. About Bell Canada Mental Health and Anti-Stigma Research Chair In February 2012, Bell announced a world’s first: the creation of the Bell

Canada Mental Health and Anti-Stigma Research Chair. Dr. Stuart was named the chair holder. As part of their Let’s Talk mental health initiative, Bell’s donation of $1 million over five years will allow Dr. Stuart to focus her research on developing and disseminating best practices to reduce stigma, hire research assistants and bring in experts to speak at conferences, among other activities. The Mental Health Support Network The Mental Health Support Network, South East Ontario Corp. is committed to serving people, 16 years of age and

older, who have experience with the mental health system. The network provides a range of peer support initiatives, within seven communities, with the intent of reconnecting people to their communities through available resources and services. MHSN offers a basket of services which include but are not limited to peer support, employment and education opportunities, social and recreational activities, resources – library, computer/ internet access and advocating with people.

Many people like to carry a few specific tools in the trunk of their vehicles during winter, in case of roadside or weather-caused emergencies. Even if your vehicle is an all-wheel-drive SUV or a full-fledged fourwheel-drive truck, some tools can come really handy in extreme situations. Firstly, it is a good idea to keep a light shovel in the trunk.

Cold weather and slippery roads are once again at the doorstep. That means it’s time to prepare your car for winter. These days, a lot of motorists don’t really think about basic maintenance and pre-winter prep because newer cars require less overall maintenance than they did a few golden years ago. But the reality is that car owners can do several things to get ready for the cold season. Changing over to winter tires is the most important move to make. They are adapted for cold pavement and icy conditions and increase road safety beyond measure. After the tires, it is important to change the wiper blades, even if they don’t seem to show any wear. Opting for special winter wiper blades is a great idea, as winter blades are designed to prevent ice build-up. Long before the first snowfall, all the engine fluids should be checked, starting with the windshield washer liquid. You don’t need a mechanic to do a simple job like this one. If you don’t know where to find the spouts for the other engine fluids, look in your owner’s manual, located in the glove compartment. Incidentally, browsing through that little book could bring you some useful information on all kinds of things you can do to keep your car in top shape. Buy a set of special winter rubber mats for the interior. Protecting your car’s carpeting from melting snow and salt is another way of keeping the vehicle’s resale value. If your new car is equipped with block heating but you are not familiar with how it works, ask your mechanic to show you where the plug is. In fact, why not ask your mechanic to give your car a looking over before winter. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that everything’s okay just because you don’t hear any clunking or grinding! In the coldest season of the year, you want to be able to drive in complete confidence that everything’s working perfectly.

So what about winter tires? Although only Quebec has a winter tire law, most provinces strongly recommend that drivers equip their cars with winter tires during the cold season, usually from mid-December to midMarch. Insurance companies agree; there is plenty of evidence that spe-

cially adapted winter tires reduce the number of winter road accidents caused by icy conditions. It might be tempting to dismiss the use of winter tires as just another expense, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worthwhile to think of them as an investment instead â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a guarantee of safety for drivers and

Your truck deserves the best winter tires

There was a time when it was difficult, if not impossible, to get true winter tires for trucks and large SUVs. But that problem is a thing of the past, with many manufacturers now offering this type of technologically advanced winter tire for every size of automobile. If you are the proud owner of a van or SUV, don’t make the mistake of thinking that off-road tires are aggressive enough to face winter conditions. For sure, these

kinds of tires can be effective in deep snow, but to keep control of the vehicle on icy patches, nothing beats tires that are meant for this purpose. Modern trucks and SUVs have been designed to handle well in almost all driving conditions, but it’s no secret that the major markets they’re aimed at are those of the slightly milder climates in middle America. Here in the great white north, winter driving is an art that requires specially adapted equipment.

That’s why tire manufacturers have developed specialized tire products for trucks. If you believe that your fourwheel-drive can handle anything, don’t forget that snow is not the only foil to watch for. Cold asphalt and cold tire rubber can seriously affect the traction of your all-season tires. If you want to be sure of keeping control at all times, a set of good winter tires can hug the road cozily on every turn, in just about any weather.

Manufacturers now offer effective winter tires for trucks.

Local woman shares her experience with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, shines light on OCD Awareness Week dertook in April. She had never gone after it due to fear, fear of hurting someone else, or something bad happening. At this point, her mood has become more positive and happy, she has “more good days than bad.” “I am getting back to the person I was before the relapse,” she nodded with a small smile. “This time has been harder because it has been longer.”

By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

News - There are many jokes about OCD, but if people really understood what it was all about, they would never make fun, says Jenn Coward. Coward, 28, is sharing her experience with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to shine the spotlight on International OCD Awareness Week, coming up Oct. 14-20. Coward’s sharing of her story has helped her in her own journey to get better. “It’s important to speak out,” she says. Her own path with OCD began as a teenager. Her neighbour’s home had been broken into when she was 14 years old. The safety and security of her own home became a concern as the incident next door had bothered her deeply. She would check and recheck the doors, to ensure they were locked. Then she would check behind the doors - this routine, or ritual at first took five minutes, but then stretched into three and four hours a night. She “always had to do it the same way every time,” she described. If something disrupted “the ritual”, she would panic and find a way to go and do it. She became so stressed out because of it, hiding it from her family, “I got good at hiding what I was doing,” she said. Eventually it all became too much to handle. She found the courage to open up to a friend, who encouraged her to go to a doctor and to research OCD. Having a big medical book, one of those big thick ones most families have on their shelves at home, she delved in. She felt a sense of relief as she kept reading, thinking that described her behaviour and thoughts perfectly - including the realization of what exactly she was doing as she performed check after check of the house, but just not being able to stop. At the same time, she found herself upset, upset that this was something she had. She took the information to her mother who, at the time, thought perhaps it was just stress. But Coward knew it was more than that, she had done such a good job of hiding her behaviours and routines from her family, she wasn’t surprised they didn’t realize the depth of what was happening. She got in to see a doctor and was then referred to a psychiatrist. With medication and therapy, she got the help she needed. While it was a rough and overwhelming year, she noted, she got back on the right track. She finished high school and then went abroad to Australia and New Zealand. When she returned she went to live with her sister. Not sure what to do with herself, she got a job in St. Thomas. Feeling as though she had been doing all right for such a long period of time, she thought perhaps she could come off the medication she was taking. Coming off an anti-depressant must be done right, and can take a bit of time. During the time she was making her way off the medication, the family faced some troubles of their own. Her sister had a baby born with a heart problem. That August, she began experiencing some of her old symptoms again. Brushing it off to stress due to the situation, she ignored what was happening. She started to get anxious all the time again, she came to a breaking point, a day she remembers well, Nov. 29, three years ago.

Reaching out One thing which has helped her along the way has been reaching out to others and speaking to people about OCD. She has spoken with the nursing program and child and youth worker program at St. Lawrence College, sharing her story. She hopes to get into some of the high schools to also provide a presentation. “If someone can get something out of what I am going through, I want to pass it on,” she noted of the positive message. While there isn’t currently a support group in Brockville for those with OCD, she hopes perhaps in a few years to set something up in this area. Or even a support group for those with anxiety. “It’s good to have a network,” she said. Bringing awareness to the issue can only help with the stigma that seems to be attached to these kinds of disorders. She noted, especially for youth, when they are going through such a time of change in their lives, “We need to support them and help them.” “There’s a lot of fear and reaction and the embarrassment factor,” about coming forward and saying that you have a problem, she said. The fact there are so many comments meant as jokes and misinformation about the disorder, only leads to these fears and embarrassment. Coward hopes to educate the public, through telling her story, to reach out to those who may be suffering. “You have to think of it as an illness. You can’t blame yourself for it, just do your best to get better,” she said. And Photo by MARLA DOWDALL getting better may mean a lifetime of Jenn Coward, 28, of Brockville, is sharing her experience with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to shine the managing through treatment, medicaspotlight on International OCD Awareness Week, coming up Oct. 14 - 20. She holds up two books which tion or therapy, or all of the above.

have served to comfort her and provide inspiration in her journey through treatment – Jeff Bell’s ‘Rewind Second year student Replay Repeat: A Memoir of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder’ and Shannon Shy’s “It’ll be Okay.”: How I Kept Coward is currently in her second Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) from Ruining My Life. year at St. Lawrence College in the The Sunday evening, she had been getting ready for work the next day, she had been doing her usual cleaning. When it came time to put away the cleaning wipes, she kept putting them back, but had to keep doing it over and over again. The first time she looked at her clock it was around 8 p.m. The next time she looked it was 4 a.m. At that point, she knew she had to take the day off work and get in to see a doctor. Needing to take some time off, she came home, to Brockville, for a period of time, to the support of her family. When the six-week period was up, she headed back to St. Thomas. Still feeling lost, within a few weeks, and one night taking three hours to take the garbage out, she knew she needed to return home. Some of her symptoms included a phobia of numbers, having to do something a certain number of times, or taking at times, up to two hours to get up, shower and go. “It gets frustrating and depressing,” she noted, leaving her not wanting to go out. Resigning from her job in St. Thomas, she came home again.

Getting in with a psychiatrist, and having several journeys through the health care system to get established with care, she noted one of the routes which has been taken is exposure therapy, creating a list of things to overcome, starting from the easiest to the hardest. One of the first things she faced overcoming was the ritual of wearing certain things on certain days of the week. Attends conference It was last year she decided to attend the 19th annual International OCD Conference in Chicago. Put on by the International OCD Foundation, the conference features workshops and other activities. Those who attend are professionals, as well as those who experience OCD. Coward met a number of people she has become friends with who inspired her. This group includes Jeff Bell, IOCDF spokesperson, and author of ‘Rewind Replay Repeat: A Memoir of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.’ She also met Shannon Shy, author of “It’ll be Okay.”: How I Kept Obsessive-

Compulsive Disorder (OCD) from Ruining My Life. She has found inspiration from his book, as well as his Facebook page, Shannon Shy-OCD Can Be Defeated, I’m living Proof. It’s a page she visits regularly. She also attended this year’s conference, held in Atlanta, Georgia. Seeing many who were a lot worse off than she was, she came to the realization that she has come a long way in her own journey. Therapy Through therapy, she actually had to count the number of times she was checking items, and found over the course of two months she was “checking” things 1,500 times. Over time she was able to cut that down to a count of 700. Therapy has forced her to “rethink” her thoughts and she has been building up to dealing with the hardest items on her exposure therapy lists. “It’s easier now. I can rationalize better,” she described. A big step for Coward was to get her driver’s licence. This was a step she un-

business program. She has found support and helpful information through the International OCD Foundation (http:// www.ocfoundation.org/) and the fairly newly formed Canadian OCD Network (http://canadianocdnetwork.com/), as well as Shannon Shy’s Facebook page, as listed above. Those wishing to get in touch with Coward may do so through email at jenncoward@hotmail.com.

According to the IOCDF, one in 100 adults likely have OCD and that number is one in 200 for children. The goal of OCD Awareness Week is to “raise awareness and understanding about obsessive compulsive disorder and related disorders, with the goal of helping more people to get timely access to appropriate and effective treatment.” Defined on the website, OCD is “a disorder of the brain and behaviour. OCD causes severe anxiety in those affected. OCD involves both obsessions and compulsions that take a lot of time and get in the way of important activities the person values.” The cause is currently unknown.

Closure of small church affects Anglican parish

News - The closure of a small, historic church in central Leeds County could have profound consequences for an Anglican parish that dates back to the mid-1800s. At the end of last year, St. Paul’s Anglican Church in the village of Delta closed its doors after its small congregation could no longer afford to keep the house of worship open. The church, one of the oldest in Ontario, was originally established in 1811 by a Baptist congregation. Since the number of settlers in the area was small at that time, the church was shared by Baptist and Anglican worshippers.

Eventually, the Anglicans purchased the church from the Baptists. In recent years, St. Paul’s had been faced with the dilemma of a dwindling congregation caused by the deaths of older members and the lack of younger families joining the church. Fewer church members meant a decline in weekly offerings, the church’s primary revenue source. Meeting operating expenses with contributions from a relatively small congregation has been a challenge for not only St. Paul’s but other rural churches throughout the province. St. Paul’s was part of

the Anglican parish of Lansdowne Rear so called after the former Township of the Rear of Leeds and Lansdowne. The two other churches remaining in the parish are Christ Anglican Church in Athens and Holy Trinity Anglican Church in the farming settlement of Oak Leaf, three miles to the southwest. Joining together in a parish, allowed the three small congregations to share expenses including paying the salary of a minister who preached at all three churches. The loss of revenue from the closure of the Delta church has put an additional financial burden on

the two remaining churches in the parish. And like the Delta congregation, Holy Trinity Anglican Church is faced with declining attendance due to the death of older members and the lack of new members particularly from young families. “We realize that young families are busy but we are open to new things, new ways to worship including worship times that would suit modern families,” said Rev. Canon Karen Freake, rector of Holy Trinity Anglican Church. “But we really need the younger families to attend so we can determine what they

Notice of an Amendment to a Renewable Energy Approval By South Dundas Limited Partnership Submitted photo

Project Name: South Branch Wind Farm Project Applicant: South Dundas Windfarm Limited Partnership Renewable Energy Approval Number: 8729-974KHK

The picturesque Holy Trinity Anglican Church at Oak Leaf near Athens, is facing possible closure because of declining membership.

South Dundas Windfarm Limited Partnership (“Proponent”) is developing the South Branch Wind Farm, which is a 30 megawatt (MW) wind energy project near Brinston, Ontario in the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry and the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville. An application under O.Reg 359/09 Renewable Energy Approvals was approved on July 11, 2013 (REA #8279-974KHK; OPA Contract ID F-000658-WIN-130-601). Since receiving a Renewable Energy Approval (REA) for the project from the Ministry of the Environment (MOE), the Proponent has identified some technical issues that could only be identified through detailed design of the project. As a result the Proponent is proposing some minor amendments to the preliminary design and is seeking an amendment to the REA. This project is subject to the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act, Part V.0.1 and Ontario Regulation 359/09. The Proponent is proposing modifications and additions to temporary access roads as well as a modifying a portion of the underground collection line. Temporary turning radii are proposed for component delivery at the intersections of County Road 16 and Snowbird Rd along with a temporary entrance at turbine 10. Temporary turns in the access road from County Rd 16 to turbine 15 have been proposed for turbine component delivery. The underground collection routing and temporary access road has been adjusted between turbines 11 and 12 to minimize the distance of collection lines needed as well. These proposed changes are all within the already assessed project location. The Proponent will follow the previously established mitigation measures outlined within the Natural Heritage Assessment Report, no negative impacts to the environment or neighbouring residences parcels are anticipated from the proposed changes. The Proponent has prepared a complete Renewable Energy Approval Modification Report documenting these changes. This report has been submitted to the MOE and is being considered as part of the application for amendment to the REA. This Modification Report can be viewed on the project website: http://edprwindfarms.com/canada/under-dev/southbranch.htm.

would like,” she added. At a recent meeting, members of Holy Trinity discussed ways in which the church could meet the financial void in the parish left by the closure of the Delta church. In particular, Holy Trinity is hoping to attract more members to the congregation and raise additional revenue. Church officials also hope other members of the congregation, who have not been financially supporting Holy Trinity, will now come forward to assist. “There comes a time in everyone’s life when they need the church and expect it to be there for them,” said Bob Easton, rector’s warden for Holy Trinity. “In a similar vein, there comes a time when the church needs its people and that time is now,” he said. Aside from electricity, heating costs and ongoing regular maintenance, the congregation has also been faced with major costs for capital projects. This year, $11,000 was spent on repairs to the roof of the church. Holy Trinity, which is celebrating its 165th anniversary in 2013, provides much more than a place of worship. Aside from church services, including baptisms, weddings and funerals, Holy Trinity is the scene of community activities including popular, church-sponsored dinners. The church hall also provides an excellent meeting and dining facility which has been utilized by regional organizations for many years. Holy Trinity traces its origins back to 1837 when Rev. Francis Tremayne started to build the parish of Lansdowne Rear. Tremayne resided in the village of Athens but, in the Oak Leaf area, conducted services in the Charleston

school. In 1848, William Webster and his wife, the former Allis Murphy, donated land from their farm to build a permanent church with room for an adjacent cemetery. The site was on low hill near the intersection of the Upper and Lower Oak Leaf Roads not far from the northern shore of Charleston Lake. That same year, the limestone block church was constructed. The latest challenge for the church is not the first time, Holy Trinity has faced adversity. Just before Christmas near the end of the Second World War, disaster struck the congregation. Fires were started in the stoves at the church in the afternoon of Dec. 17, 1944 to warm the building prior to the beginning of an evening service. However, a fierce storm struck the area during the day and the service was cancelled. At dusk, a local farmer noticed a red glow coming from the church building. The blaze, presumably started from the fires built in the stoves, destroyed much of the structure. When news of the disaster spread, congregations at the two other churches in the parish at Athens and Delta offered their buildings for services. Later, the congregation held services at the former Oak Leaf School. The fire had consumed the then 98-year-old wooden interior of the church. The building’s thick block walls, made from locally-quarried limestone, withstood the ravages of the flames but the congregation faced the challenge of replacing the interior of the church. Rebuilding was delayed by the Second World War but through the hard work of the congregation, coupled with many donations See CHURCH page 23

MPP Clark joins United Way, Health Unit and United Counties for poverty reduction forum Oct. 16 at Brockville Public Library Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark is holding a forum this month to give area residents an opportunity to have their voices heard as part of the provincial governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Poverty Reduction Strategy. Clark has teamed up with the United Way of Leeds and Grenville, the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville and the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, who will facilitate the discussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was disappointed the government,

as part of its province wide consultations, did not select Leeds-Grenville for a meeting,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential that voices from rural and small urban areas of the province like our riding are heard in this process.â&#x20AC;? Clark said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thrilled to be working with the United Way, United Counties and the local Health Unit and is looking forward to hearing not only from agencies on the frontlines helping those in need, but people whose lives have been touched by poverty.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m expecting an excellent discussion and to hear some great insight about how we can create a meaningful poverty reduction plan to make a real difference for families here in Leeds-Grenville,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. All input gathered at the forum will be presented by Clark to the Ministry of Children and Youth Services and Ministry of Community and Social Services, who are leading the five-year review of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Poverty Reduction Strategy launched in 2008.

The forum will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at the Brockville Public Library. Registration is at 9 a.m. and the meeting will take place from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Although the session is open to everyone, for planning purposes organizers are asking anyone who would like to take part to confirm their attendance by emailing info@steveclarkmpp.com or by calling Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constituency office at 613-342-9522 or toll-free at 1-800-267-4408.

CHURCH From page 22

from friends and former parishioners, Holy Trinity was rebuilt with new furnishings and lovely memorials. The first service in the new building was held on Christmas in 1948. In the early 1980s, the congregation took on its largest project since it had rebuilt the church after the fire. Plans were made to construct a much-needed church hall on the east side of the building. Through a combination of fundraising dances, a loan and donations, including a great deal of volunteer labour or materials purchased at cost, the hall slowly took shape.

church also holds a pancake supper in the spring and fall harvest supper. The hall is also available to other groups for meetings which can be accompanied by a meal prepared by the Holy Trinity Anglican Church Women. For many years, older members of the congregation recalled how the steeple on top of Holy Trinity church tower had dominated the landscape in the area. That steeple was destroyed in the 1944 fire. In the 1990s, the congregation embarked on yet another fund-raising project to replace the steeple. The soaring steeple spire, with its gleaming metal exterior capped by a cross, was erected

Business - It was 46 years ago that Peter Polite started up Polite Sand and Gravel in Augusta Township, and last week the company was recognized as a pillar of the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business community. Polite Sand and Gravel was named business of the year at a luncheon held Friday, Oct. 4 at the Grenville Snowmobile Club near Maynard. The annual business of the year luncheon is hosted by the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Economic Development and Tourism Committee, which this year, chose Polite over two other worthy nomineesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ground Master and Trussell Stone and Brick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so lucky to have these businesses in the township,â&#x20AC;? said Wendy Onstein, manager of the Leeds and Grenville Small Business Enterprise Center and member of the committee. Polite Sand and Gravel is now run by Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, Steve, and his wife Anne-Marie, and has a staff of seven full-time employees and seven seasonal workers. The company specializes in septic tank installations, new home excavations and in the sale of sand and gravel. The company has actually been nominated twice before but lost out, so the Polites werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t counting on hearing their names announced this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I sure didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect that we would win,â&#x20AC;? said Steve in accepting the award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I appreciate it very much.â&#x20AC;? Polite pointed out that Augusta Township boasts a healthy and robust business community and hopes the economic development committee continues to recognize those who contribute to that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully this keeps going for many more years,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of great businesses that havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been nominated yet.â&#x20AC;? One such business is Maplehurst Manor, an opulent Victorian home located along County

Politeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sand and Gravel was named business of the year at an annual awards luncheon held by Augusta Township last week. Councillor Doug Malanka (second from right) presents the award to Steve Polite and his wife, Anne-Marie, while (from left) Reeve Mel Campbell, Dustin Polite, Kenny Polite, Wes Polite, Michael Jiggins (representing MPP Steve Clark and MP Gord Brown), and Wendy Onstein look on. Road 2 in Maitland. The estate has been turned into a destination for weddings and special events, and its owner, Anne Cox, was the guest speaker at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s luncheon. Cox bought the place in 2011 and did extensive renovations over the subsequent 12 months before opening in June of 2012. Now, the stately home and its attached carriage house is a popular spot for anybody looking for a classy, upscale space in which to hold a special event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To appreciate whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been done, you really need to see the place,â&#x20AC;? says Augusta Township reeve Mel Campbell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just an amazing transformation.â&#x20AC;? Campbell also mentioned that Cox is the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unanimous choice as the local nominee for the Bill Thake Memorial Award for Eco-

nomic Development Leadership, the winner of which will be announced at the end of November. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an inspiration to all of us what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done in the community,â&#x20AC;? said Campbell. The business of the year luncheon is held expressly to acknowledge the simple fact that as the business community goes, so goes the rest of the community, and the comfortable lifestyle enjoyed by residents of the township is due in large part to the success of local business and industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extremely important that you are recognized by the township for contributing to this community,â&#x20AC;? said Doug Malanka, chair of the Economic Development and Tourism Committee.

Real estate question? Ask an expert holidays and family gatherings. We also value our privacy so we just aren’t sure if a condominium is right for us at this point but since we plan on travelling quite a bit, low maintenance is a priority. Help! A. It sounds like you are struggling with a downsizing dilemma. Many baby boomers will be able to relate to these concerns and the challenges surrounding the decision to downsize. However, downsizing can be a great option if you’re ready for it and it sounds like you are. Firstly, consider some of the benefits of downsizing. With a smaller home you will not have as much maintenance to take care of, your heating and cooling costs will go down and you may free up some extra money that will come in useful once you retire. Of course there is a trade-off and the loss of space can be a challenge when you are accustomed to a certain amount of square footage. A good place to start is by considering your current and future lifestyle needs. Ask yourself: • How many rooms do you (really) need? • How often do you host overnight guests? • How much travelling are you planning on doing?

• Do you have a cottage or timeshare where you plan on spending time? Depending on how you answer these questions, the next steps will become easier to navigate. If you are in the position where extra space is an afterthought, then the upkeep necessary may not be worth the benefits. Keep in mind that a smaller home or condominium doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to have family and friends over; you may just have to handoff the hosting duties for the annual 25-person Thanksgiving dinner! Speak to your realtor about your changing needs and have him or her show you some options – there are a lot of choices out there from bungalows to villas and town homes so you certainly aren’t limited to either a single family detached home or a high rise condominium.

Business – Whether you are a first time buyer, renter or an existing homeowner looking to downsize or invest in an additional property, you’re bound to have questions. From figuring out how much home you can afford to choosing the right neighbourhood for you and your family, real estate expert and president of the Ontario Real Estate Association, Phil Dorner is here to help. Today’s question comes from a couple looking at downsizing from a large single family detached house into a smaller home. They have lived in their current home for almost 20 years but with their children moved out, don’t need as much space. They are concerned about the lifestyle implications of downsizing. Q. Hi Phil. My husband and I are looking at downsizing from our current home into something smaller and easier to maintain. We have lived in the same home for 20 years but since our children moved out, we just don’t need all the space anymore. I can’t even remember the last time we went down to the basement! While we recognize that we don’t need the extra space, we love to have family and friends over and are concerned that by downsizing, we won’t be able to host

From Our Closet to Yours expands for Oct. 19 event: Donations being accepted up to Oct. 15

By DOREEN BARNES Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; From Our Closet to Yours, was so popular during its first ever event, it has expanded now to include more for those who attend. On Saturday, Oct. 19 people are invited to visit Centennial Road Church, 3545 Centennial Rd., County Road 27, Lyn, to obtain good quality clothes for free from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Originally, the event was started in an effort to provide women returning to the workforce with the opportunity to receive good interview and work clothes without a huge expense,â&#x20AC;? said coordinator Tina Murray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the first event last year, it was discovered that men need clothes too, so it has been expanded. It now includes womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wear.â&#x20AC;? The clothes Murray is referring to are shirts, blouses, skirts, trousers, infant wear, jackets, coats, jeans, sweaters, vests with exception to under garments; under garments will not be accepted as donations nor be available. If individuals have infant and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wear to donate, From Our Closet to Yours would be very grateful for these items. From Our Closet to Yours will only

From Our Closet To Yours coordinator Tina Murray (left) and volunteer Tanya Lake (right) are grateful to the public for giving donations of clothes and hope to receive more infant or childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothes to give people a wider selection. If you have good quality clothes that you no longer wear, think about donating those garments to this event which will benefit other individuals.

accept donated clothes until Tuesday night, Oct. 15, as they need to sort and arrange the clothes for Saturday. People will not have the opportunity to try on clothes, in privacy, as the gymnasium does not have the available space for a changing room. Murray did mention that thanks to Brockville City Bus Lines, transportation has been arranged for a school bus to provide rides in Brockville, from pick-up points of Brockville Collegiate Institute, 90 Pearl St. E., near the Quality Hotel and Conference Centre Royal Brock, 100 Stewart Blvd., and Kensington Plaza with drop-offs at Centennial Road Church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first bus stop will be at 8:15 a.m., at Brockville Collegiate Institute, 8:30 a.m. at Quality Inn Royal Brockville and 8:45 at Kensington Plaza, to be at Centennial Road Church for 9 a.m.,â&#x20AC;? advised Murray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then it will loop back and do it again. So at 9:15 and 10:15 a.m., the school bus will be Brockville Collegiate Institute, 9:30 and 10:30 a.m., at Quality Inn Royal Brock and 9:45 and 10:45 a.m., at Kensington Plaza.â&#x20AC;? Murray indicated that the after the third bus run and upon arrival at the church for 11 a.m., no more pick-ups will be made until people are ready to return

to their original destinations. In addition to transportation, Murray has asked the Employment and Education Centre to be available to provide interviews and resume writing tips. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activity area that will allow parents the time to sort through clothes and meet with the Employment and Education Centre,â&#x20AC;? added Murray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus Natasha Annable from Flair FX on King Street Brockville is donating her time to give children free haircuts that morning. She will be bringing one of her specialty chairs.â&#x20AC;? As well, the Volunteer Bureau of St. Lawrence-Rideau will be on the premises to help people become connected with the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know people who started volunteering at the Volunteer Bureau and eventually got full time jobs,â&#x20AC;? said Murray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Volunteering can lead to a job.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want people to be able to take their children out for an evening, go to church, have photographs taken, or go for a job interview and not worry about their clothes,â&#x20AC;? said Murray. If anyone wants more information, check the website at www.centennialroad.com or call the Church Office at 613-345-3424.

Read to Every Kid Every Day challenge launched Oct. 1 Events - Every Kid in Our Communities, the libraries of Leeds-Grenville and community agency partners are inviting children, parents, caregivers and guardians to participate in their annual “Read to Every Kid Every Day” Challenge. The goal is to determine Leeds-Grenville’s favourite book while promoting the benefits of reading to children every day. An initiative similar to Canada Reads, this home-grown project was launched on Oct. 1 at the Lansdowne Library: Community partners, parents and children gathered to hear librarian Lisa Marsden announce the names of

10 nominated children’s books. Mayor Frank Kinsella was in attendance to read one of the nominated books. This year’s nominees are: - Where the Wild Things Are – Maurice Sendak - Cat’s Pyjamas –Catherine Foreman - Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site – Sherry Duskey Rinker - Little White Rabbit (Kevin Henkes) - Lost and Found (Oliver Jeffers) - Mitchell’s License (Hallie Durand) - Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons (E. Litwin & J. Dean) - Tuck Me In! (Dean Hacochen and

Sherry Scharschmidt) - Where is the Green Sheep? (Mem Fox and Judy Horacek) Families and readers will be asked to vote for their favourite children’s book with “winners” to be announced at the beginning of Family Literacy Week on Jan. 25, 2014. Families will be able to vote online at www.everykid.on.ca or through ballot boxes at libraries, Ontario Early Years Centres, and other organizations across Leeds-Grenville. In its second year, the Read to Every Kid Every Day project won the Minister’s Award for Innovation 2010 from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism at

She has an orange earth tone colour with a blonde tail and mane and is sure to amaze you with her determination to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;get the job doneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Rainbow Dash is certainly the most colourful pony - she is a sky blue Pegasus pony that has a rainbow-coloured tail. She tends to be the mischievous pony - so come and see what she is up to when the Ponies come to your area! At each My Little Pony performance kids are invited to play and create at the complimentary Play-Doh Play Centre. Kids can enjoy silly tactile fun while helping to build fine and gross motor skills.

In addition to energetic students and key messages that reinforce the benefits of St. Lawrence, intense and vibrant colours complete the creative. Every aspect of the creative was designed to reinforce the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to help students achieve their desire for a rewarding job and the life they dream of, notes the release. The campaign has been launched on all of SLCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketing platforms and communications channels. This includes: social media; radio; television; outdoor; digital; and print. The recruiting team also has new promotional materials and displays to reach and connect with prospective students during the year. The main print publication for full-time programs is the Viewbook, released in September, to support the overall launch. The Viewbook features the campaign, highlights the many elements of the college, as well as giving readers a brief list and description of our 85 plus full-time programs. It has added augmented reality, using the new Layar application within the Viewbook. This app allowed the embedding of SLC videos, which brings static print materials alive for readers using their smartphones. The college, with campuses in Brockville as well as Kingston and Cornwall, continues to see strong enrolment and looks forward to attracting even more students with the help of this new creative and interactive marketing campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;According to the April 2013 Key Performance Indicators, the college is number one in the province for Graduate Employment. We want to ensure we attract even more students in the coming years so they can say â&#x20AC;&#x153;helloâ&#x20AC;? to the future too,â&#x20AC;? said Glenn Vollebregt, President and CEO, St. Lawrence College.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; St. Lawrence College has just launched a fresh, new recruitment marketing campaign. In an increasingly competitive postsecondary market, it is vital to refresh the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketing campaigns to ensure it remains relevant, according to Kelly Wiley, Marketing and Communications Director at St. Lawrence College. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This refresh will be used to recruit students for full-time programs in fall and winter of 2014,â&#x20AC;? Wiley noted in a college press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new campaign keeps our core target market in mind, with a modern, fresh, and energetic campaign. It focuses on how the College will benefit prospective students, and illustrates that SLC is the best choice for providing a rewarding education that prepares our students for the careers of their dreams.â&#x20AC;? The key messages featured in the campaign were developed through extensive research with current and prospective students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our students told us what made St. Lawrence College unique, and prospective students helped us understand what was important to them in choosing a school,â&#x20AC;? said Wiley. The research showed that the benefits of a world-class education, the advantages of small-city living, and personal attention from industry professionals, are important to our studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; success and experience at SLC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within the creative we have used tweets from our students and staff. User-generated content was important to incorporate as it allowed us to not just use marketing messages, but elements our core audience actually said about the college,â&#x20AC;? Wiley said. This content was gathered during a Twitter and Facebook contest this past spring. More of these authentic messages can be found at #MySLC on Twitter. The campaign illustrates that at St. Lawrence College, a student wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be lost in the crowd â&#x20AC;&#x201C; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be an integral part of an energetic, close-knit community that is dedicated to learning and is focused on helping students achieve

Business of the year luncheon highlights agricultural industry By CONAN de VRIES

Business – Last week, the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley held its annual business luncheon, but this time, instead of singling out a particular company as business of the year, as it has always done, organizers decided to highlight a particular industry. Agriculture is the backbone of the township, and the farming community in Elizabethtown-Kitley is large and vibrant, which made it the logical choice as the subject of this year’s event, which was held Oct. 3 at the Cedar Valley Golf and Country Club. “This is a nice place to live, and part of that is because of the agriculture around us,” said Jim Miller, chair of the township’s Economic Development Committee. Miller noted that within one generation the level of production per acre of farmland has increased by a factor of 10, largely because of the adoption by farmers of advanced technology and of an increasingly scientific approach to farming. “It’s making the maximum use of

Many farmers, municipal officials and business owners turned out for a business luncheon last week held by the Economic Development Committee of the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley to highlight the development of the local agricultural industry. Among those in attendance were (from left) Andrew Greaves, Ron Greaves, Jim Miller, Alex Oosterhof, Steve Oosterhof, Henry Oosterhof, Elise Weagant, Laird Weagant, Sheldon Laffoley and Mayor Jim Pickard.

what we have,” says Miller. Still, despite the fact that everyone depends so heavily on the farming industry, whether they live in a farming community or not, few fully understand just how much the industry has changed. “Most people don’t appreciate what’s going on in agriculture today,” says Miller. After a delicious luncheon, of food made possible one way or another by farmers, those in attendance were shown a 15-minute video produced by the Economic Development Committee entitled ‘The Changing Face of Agriculture in Elizabethtown-Kitley.’ The production featured interviews with the owners of several local farms—among them Crystal Farms, Ridgehouse Farms, Greaveston Holsteins, Jobo Farms, Tincap Berry Farm and Burnbrae Farms. Many of the participants, those who could pull themselves away from the farm’s many chores, were present for the showing.

The video highlighted some of what makes the local farming community so strong, but the interviews also identified some of the issues with which farmers are struggling. As much as technology assists farmers, it can also be a hindrance, as the technology advances so rapidly. The same can be said for government, which can, at times, be helpful but is just as often an impediment to success. Unpredictable costs, fuel chief among them, can also hamper a farmer’s business plan. Succession planning is another difficulty farmers can face, as is the encroachment into the farming community of residents unfamiliar with some of the inconveniences, however minor, of living near an active farm. The rural lifestyle, however, is increasingly attractive to people, and that was, in part, the subject of a talk given by Lynne Clifford Ward, who made a brief presentation about a cultural mapping project in the township.

Chamber of Commerce names Jim Cooper its Citizen of the Year

Photo by JAN MURRAY

Events – The Town of Gananoque opened its doors to the public Sept. 28 and 29 in celebration of Doors Open Gananoque. Open to the public were some of the most charming and intriguing heritage sites Gananoque has to offer. Including the Town Hall, Gananoque Inn and Spa, and the Thousand Islands Playhouse. The Springer Theatre was originally Gananoque’s Canoe Club which explains the fine collection of antique canoes hidden away under the theatre. The canoe club, founded in 1906 has produced many outstanding canoe and kayak champions and teams. The Canoe Clubhouse which we now know as the Thousand Islands Playhouse was built in the summer of 1909. Here, in the Thousand Islands Playhouse props and costumes room is Andrew Geekie.

Blackhawks sweep home and home with Prescott Old Timers

R0012312379

“Those guys didn’t have their full line-up in these two games. We are happy with the wins for sure but the reality is our guys know how good they are when they ice their regular team,” management said to the media horde outside the Blackhawks’ dressing room. The anticipated fireworks that everybody expected in the back half of the home and home didn’t materialize. “With the exception of a spirited fight Saturday night, it appeared the two teams were playing on fumes in the second of the back-to-back games,” management explained.

Give an ever-lasting paw print that can be kept close to their hearts. We have created the modern “keep sake” pendant and /or urn with a photo image on the one side and an actual pet’s paw print on the other side.

“Wow, I was really feeling tired there in the last 10 minutes of the game today,” said Spencer Utman, the Blackhawks’ star rebel of the rubber receptacle after Sunday’s game. Management has been considering Laurier Hill for conditioning sessions for the players to keep them up to speed for the long six-month season ahead of them. “Oh I’ll be there for sure, I was struggling a little bit this morning. These two games were played at a pretty good pace,” stated ‘The Ageless Wonder’ Peter Culp. Blackhawks 9 Prescott 3 The second game saw both teams compete hard despite the close proximity of the two games. The Island City lads jumped out to a quick 3-1 first period lead before the Fort Town Warriors scored late to pull within one. In the second period, the Blackhawks started to really take advantage of the heavy legs of the home team. They extended their slim one-goal lead to three before the middle stanza ended. The Blackhawks took a 6-3 lead into the third and added three more goals in the period to secure their second win of the young season. “The Scorpio Line’s” J R ‘Buckleys’ Ryan and Wayne ‘The Champ’ Morrow led the Hawks scoring as they each potted a pair of goals. ‘The Ageless Wonder’ Peter Culp, the ‘KFC Kid’ Josh Brayton, Daryl ‘Stumpy’ Whiteland, Joel ‘The Hammer’ Blancher and Luke ‘I’m not Clarke’ MacArthur rounded out the Hawks’ scoring in this game. “Both teams were getting tired as the game went on, it’s a tough way to start the season with two intense games in a span of 14 hours,” management observed. “We were lucky to have a full line-up for both games. These two wins will certainly give

our boys some confidence going forward.” Blackhawks 3 Prescott 1 Opening night for these two teams had everything one would expect when the Blackhawks and the Old Timers from the Fort Town hook up for a game. Besides being billed as a goaltenders duel between the Hawks’ Spencer Utman and Prescott’s stalwart Brayden Wyatt, it also had some fireworks as well. Yes you heard that right, fireworks. Late in the second period Blackhawks’ call-up Joel ‘The Hammer’ Blancher accidently clipped Prescott’s speedster Mark Wyatt in the face with his stick. Seconds later they both dropped their mitts all to the delight of the capacity crowd of six people who jammed into the Youth Arena for the game. “This game had it all, it had a lot of intensity and great goaltending at both ends. Wyatt nearly stole this game from us, he was that good tonight. I haven’t seen him play too many bad games against us,” management said after the game just outside the team’s locker room. “Both goalies were outstanding tonight. Wyatt frustrated our guys all night long. He certainly gives those guys a chance to win every game he plays, tonight’s game was no exception. Territorially we dominated this game but Wyatt was the difference, he kept those guys hanging around,” Hawks’ team captain J R ‘Buckleys’ Ryan said to the scrum of reporters around his stall. “You look at their line up here tonight and you can’t help but admire how hard they compete. They have the guys over there that if they get a scoring opportunity they usually bury it.” The Island City crew is off to Gananoque this Saturday night to take on the Gryphons, game time is 9 p.m.

Sports – The Island City Blackhawks opened up their 2013-14 and their 24th season with a pair of wins over their arch rival Prescott Old Timers. The two wins puts the Blackhawks up 2-0 in “The Battle of The River Cities” with two more games remaining. Last Saturday night at the Youth Arena, the Hawks scored a hard earned 3-1 victory. The next morning the two teams squared off again in Prescott and the Hawks left the Fort Town with a convincing 9-3 win. Blackhawks management was quick to put things in perspective after a successful opening weekend.

Last weekend, at the Spencerville Arena, Ron Baker (fourth from left) was presented with the Barrie Davis Memorial Award for his contributions to minor hockey in the province of Ontario. The award was presented by (from left) Les Matthews, first vice-president of the ODMHA; Pat Lawless, president of South Grenville Minor Hockey; Dodie Malcolm, president ODMHA; John Hunter, deputy mayor of Edwardsburgh-Cardinal; and Ron Thompson, president of Eastern Ontario Hockey.

to higher levels of competition, but all the kids lucky enough to be introduced to hockey by Ron Baker are better for having learned from him. Even as Baker’s own kids moved up through the hockey ranks, he remained to teach the youngsters. “He’s stayed with this same group all these years,” said Pat Lawless, president of South Grenville Minor Hockey. “That’s hard to do.” Baker was certainly pleased to be recognized with so prestigious an honour as

the Barrie Davis Memorial Award, but in accepting the trophy, he emphasized that the award was not his alone. “I share this award with the many men and women who have helped me over the years,” he said. “They deserve a good deal of the credit.” And, of course, credit also had to go to Baker’s family, who have supported him and his efforts all these years. “I’d like to thank my wife for allowing me to go out to play every weekend.”

Sports - Every weekend for the past 41 hockey seasons, Ron Baker could be found out on the ice at the Spencerville Arena helping introduce youngsters to the sport that has occupied so much of his life over the years. This past weekend, Baker was recognized for his contributions to the development of minor hockey in the area and was presented with the prestigious Barrie Davis Memorial Award before the start of a game at the Spencerville Arena on Sunday, Oct. 6. The Barrie Davis Memorial Award is presented annually by the board of directors of the Hockey Development Center of Ontario. Recipients have been judged to have made a singular contribution to the growth and success of minor hockey in the province of Ontario. The award is named for the late president of the Ottawa and District Minor Hockey Association. Baker was nominated by Les Matthews, first vice-president of the ODMHA. This year, the HDCO received six nominations from across the province and, as always, the nominees were an impressive bunch. “Everyone who is there is worthy of being there,” said Dodie Malcolm, president of the ODMHA. “Some of them are quite amazing. The dedication of some people is unbelievable.” Affectionately called “old coach,” Baker has been involved with the Initiation Program, formerly called Tykes, his entire career, teaching 4-6 year olds how to skate, handle a stick, move the puck and get the most out of whatever talent they have. Baker has seen several generations of kids go through the program, many on
