Events – The Alzheimer Society of Leeds-Grenville invites the community to join them in honour of its 25th anniversary. A special celebratory Dinner and Dance Gala, is planned for Oct. 19 at the Brockville Country Club. Taking a trip down memory lane, back to 1988, is the theme for the event, which will feature a number of decade dances, spot dances, as well as a look at the political and cultural landscape of the time. Fun quizzes that night might include topics such as who won the Olympics, what were popular fashion statements of the time, who was the Prime Minister and more. Perhaps there may even be a contest to see who can do the Michael Jackson Moonwalk. And of course there will be a bit of an introduction to how the

Alzheimer Society came to be locally, as well as a look at how it has grown through the years, reports Laurie DubÊ, a member of the agency’s board of directors. For her, this gala serves as recognition of the good work the agency does day in and day out. The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails followed by the dinner at 7 p.m. Then at 9 p.m. be prepared for the talents of The Trevor Walsh Group. Tickets are $75 per person and can be reserved by contacting 613-345-7392. The evening will also feature a silent auction, DubÊ notes. Up for bid will be hand crafted items and art. The menu for the gala will consist of a choice of beef tenderloin with parmesan butter or chicken supreme stuffed with asparagus and Swiss cheese. See ALZHEIMER page 3

Curtain rises on 2014 season Arts – Speaking to a full house, artistic director Ashlie Corcoran of The Thousand Islands Playhouse unveiled the lineup for the 2014 season on Oct. 8. This follows on the heels of the 2013 season which has been called both an artistic and a box office success. Please see page 19 for full details.

Health care services under one roof: CPHC celebrates opening of Centre of Excellence News – Ruth Kitson’s vision to have a centre with service providers all under one roof has become a reality. With the newly built Community and Primary Health Care Health and Wellness Centre of Excellence at 2355 Parkedale Ave., Brockville clients can access several health care services with one visit. No more visiting several facilities for various needs. This more efficient, effective form of assisting the public will benefit the client, the provider and the community. On Friday, Oct. 4, two celebrations were acknowledged at the CPHC Centre, the 100th anniversary for this organization, formerly the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) and the official opening of CPHC Health and Wellness Centre of Excellence. “We have come together today to mark the opening of this marvelous new facility in which the work of the VON continues,” said CPHC Board chair Malcolm Robinson.

Robinson introduced political dignitaries along with representatives from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term care, as well as people from the South East Local Health Integration Network, project manager Graham Bird and his team plus the architectural firm, the construction company, the current building maintenance firm, the facility’s neighbours - Brockville Police representatives, life members of the VON and individuals from the 1000 Islands Community Development Corporation. Another individual singled out was Guylaine Boise of the Office for Disability Issues who assisted with the building design with accessibility. During the speeches, Leeds Grenville MPP Steve Clark read a congratulatory letter from Deb Matthews, the Minister of Health and Long Term Care. After a quick joke by Senator Bob Runciman, he spoke about working with Kitson and her team. “I’ve worked with Ruth and her dedicated team for many years,” said Runci-

People have trouble travelling to the doctor; CPHC starts a mobile health clinic. Don’t have enough long term care beds, so CPHC runs numerous programs to keep people in their own home.

Runciman made a request on behalf of CPHC, which needs the help of the public to raise the close to $2.9 million to fulfill the next phase of their vision. “This organization has been here for you for 100 years, now it is time for you to be there for them,” ended Runciman. “So let’s do everything we can to help them meet this fundraising goal. Following Runciman’s speech was project manager Graham Bird of Graham Bird and Associates, who later gave his opinion on the difference between what a primary care facility can be and what an effective hospital should be. “You know what I think this is a brilliant example of what primary care facilities can be,” said Graham Bird of Graham Bird and Associates. “They are amazingly efficient, they are a kind of relaxing places that people can come in easily. These sorts of facilities, the examples being in Gananoque, Prescott and Russell are just great little hubs. They bring the community together to service people very quickly, a one-stop shop for everything. Instead of these big complicated hospitals being used for this purpose (health centre), separate the two, deal with primary care in something like this. Then the hospitals can focus on the big stuff that they need to without getting their world complicated. So it does a good thing on both sides.” As Runciman mentioned in his speech, this facility is a new model, a response to an efficient health care system in this province. Phase II Bird also talked about looking forward to working with Ruth Kitson and her team on the next phase of this project. That next phase is a Seniors Apartments Complex with a respite care centre. When Kitson was asked how the funds would be raised for this she said, “I don’t have all the answers, that’s why I’m talking to some of the experts at meetings next week to say what is the best way. I believe the way, is to get people to understand the vision and how it is going to serve the community. I know services, but I need to surround myself with the experts of how you really raise the money. So that is what I’m in the process of doing right now.” She also remarked that they are moving forward with Phase II which will be the first of its kind in the country. “We started planning that back in 2005 and we are redoing the feasibility study and business plan and I hope we have it all done by the end of December,” said Kitson. “Then we start talking to governments. I would love to move forward next year because I hear it will take up to two years once we have been approved.”

Canadian hockey legend Paul Henderson shares his journey of faith mdowdall@perfprint.ca

News – A sold out crowd graced the Brockville Country Club, Oct. 10 for the LeaderImpact Group’s launch event in Brockville. The eager audience was anxious to hear the LeaderImpact founder speak, hockey legend Paul Henderson. He’s best known for scoring the winning goal for Team Paul Canada in the 1972 Summit Series against Henderson the former USSR. The former NHLer, who also played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings and Atlanta Flames, was very much at ease signing autographs and speaking with fans at the breakfast event. Henderson continues to receive accolades from all over the world, notes LeaderImpact local area manager Don Heron. And while Henderson may have achieved name recognition for his hard work, and a single moment in time, his life goals were actually a bit of a stretch from his career on the ice. In speaking to those in attendance, he noted four people have had a profound impact on his life. Starting out in high school with a principal who set him straight after he took on the role of class clown, he told him he could do something with his life. His father’s wise advice was also life altering for Henderson. Growing up in a family that was poor – five children – Henderson didn’t even get his first pair

Don Heron, local area manager for the LeaderImpact Group, speaks to a sold out crowd at the Brockville Country Club, Oct. 10. A special breakfast session was put on by the group featuring hockey legend Paul Henderson, who is also the group’s founder. Looking on is Brockville mayor David Henderson.

of skates until he was nine years old. But he did dream of a career in hockey – he even started practicing his autograph at age five, he said. It was later on that he became worried about being poor and not being able to support himself or his wife, Eleanor. He decided with one year left of junior hockey ahead of him at that time, that he would quit and focus on getting a job. Sharing this decision with his father, his dad cautioned the younger Henderson, pointing to his deep love of the game, and his abilities. He said he was told he would only sit in front of the television later in life watching hockey games and wondering if he could have made it. It was this advice that led Henderson on the path forward which led to a career in the National Hockey League (NHL), and that all-famous goal scored in the 1972 Summit Series game – when Canada took on the Soviets in an historic eight-game series. Life changing It was later on that Mel Stevens entered his life. Stevens, the founder of a Christian sports camp, was looking for Henderson to volunteer. In getting to know Stevens, the question was asked of him if he had looked at the spiritual side of life. As Stevens had picked up on Henderson’s sense of anxiety and miserableness, he encouraged him to pick up and read the Bible. His understanding of the Bible and his consequent faith began to bring him a sense of peace and hope. A move to Birmingham, Alabama saw Henderson meet another influential person in his life, a man who intro-

duced him to a men’s group. The group met regularly and this man turned into a mentor. Henderson came up with a statement of purpose for his life, “To be a Godly agent of world change.” He went on to found LeaderImpact Group. According to leaderimpactgroup.com, the group exists to, “help business leaders reach their full potential while leading lives of balance and significance. This is leadership training that goes beyond business and the boardroom; it’s life training.” The goals are to see lives changed, “and filled with rich experiences, adventure, and faith,” and more. In 2009 Henderson received a diagnosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia – cancer – after going in for a checkup. But with his faith in hand, his hope did not falter. He had a tumour the size of a grapefruit, which is now as small as the end of his finger. After Henderson wrapped up his presentation, Heron called to the podium, Brockville Police Constable Mark Heffernan. Heffernan has been involved with a local LeaderImpact Discovery Group and feels it brings a fulfillment to his life that was lacking before. He noted the groups are a safe place to discuss and share issues. “Discovery Group really kick started my faith walk,” he noted, encouraging everyone to try a group or two. Groups are available for men and women and are launching in Brockville, noted Heron. He described them as “an opportunity to look at a more holistic lifestyle.” For more information please visit the website listed above.

Fundraiser supports Ducks Unlimited Canada’s conservation efforts unteers and is generously supported by many local businesses.� The organizing committee is made up of residents from the local area and has raised a whopping $585,000 for DUC’s conservation of wetlands, waterfowl and associated habitats to date. There are currently 108 DUC projects within a 50 km radius of Brockville – conserving over 9,608 acres of wetland and upland habitat at a cost of $3,330,000. Each year, those who attend DUC banquet events have a great time, while enjoying a delicious meal, exciting live and silent auctions, raffles and a variety of unique entertainment. Ninety-four per cent of all net dollars received are invested in habitat conservation, research, education and public policy. “The proceeds raised stay in Ontario. Every dollar really does add up, so we’re encouraging everyone who cares about the environment to purchase a ticket and enjoy an evening out with DUC,� adds Sherwood. “Although it’s a very important fundraiser to combat serious environment challenges, the enthusiasm of the night is simply contagious.�

“DUC was established in 1938 by a group of conservation-minded waterfowlers who had a vision and a goal to protect and conserve wetlands and their associated habitats for future generations to enjoy,� says Sherwood, a dedicated volunteer. “As a volunteer with the local committee today, I look forward to seeing everyone come together in support of wetland conservation, especially in 2013, as DUC celebrates its 75th anniversary.� To continue saving valuable wetlands, DUC needs the ongoing support of conservation minded people in communities just like Brockville. Attend this year’s Brockville Fundraising Dinner and

Auction and see how rewarding wetland conservation can be. Tickets are available by calling Jamie Sherwood at 613-802-1014, Terry Herbison at 613-342-7119 or Steve Lefave at 613-865-8033 or use DUC’s convenient buy online feature at ducks. ca/event. DUC is the leader in wetland conservation. A registered charity, DUC partners with government, industry, non-profit organizations and landowners to conserve wetlands that are critical to waterfowl, wildlife and the environment.

Events – Wetlands help protect our environment, provide clean drinking water, a host of recreational opportunities and a healthy natural habitat to sustain the lives of plants and animals. But research shows 72 per cent of southern Ontario’s large, in-land wetlands have been lost or converted to other land uses and this loss continues at an alarming rate. The Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) Brockville chapter is doing something about it. On Friday, Oct. 25, they are hosting this year’s 35th annual fundraising dinner in support of wetland conservation. “If you love the outdoors and want to have a fun, social evening while supporting a good cause, mark your calendars and buy your tickets because Ducks Unlimited Canada’s Brockville Fundraising Dinner and Auction is coming up on Friday, Oct. 25, at the Brockville Community Centre,� says Jamie Sherwood, DUC’s Brockville chapter chair. “It’s a great opportunity for people in the area to get together in a really fun way and raise money for DUC’s wetland conservation work across Ontario. The entire event is put on by local DUC vol-

Spencerville man completes Operation Husky 2013 By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: Readers of the St. Lawrence News EMC may remember reading Philip Buryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letters, detailing his journey throughout the month of August and September as a participant of Operation Husky 2013. After having sat down with Bury upon his return the News wishes to finish off the story begun a short while ago. Intense, emotional, memorable, somber and satisfying: these five words sum up how Philip Bury of Spencerville feels about his participation in Operation Husky 2013. Operation Husky 2013 was a commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Sicily during the Second World War. It was a journey through Italy, on foot mostly, along the path taken during the invasion. For Bury this was a pilgrimage, one of commemoration and remembrance. His father was involved in the war, injured just prior to the Battle of Ortona (Sicily). In fact, carrying his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

His father had received a 24-hour leave to come home and see his new child, around the time of his birth. His mother was left, as many women were at the time, to tend to her new baby on her

Pachino was the â&#x20AC;&#x153;biggest and bestâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the crowd was large and enthusiastic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many people said how good Canadians were to them. The story lives on,â&#x20AC;? he remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They made much of the Canadians and how they were so kind.â&#x20AC;? Bury is very grateful to have had the opportunity to take part, and still maintains contact with some of the folks who were on the journey along with him. He also has a great deal of gratitude for Steve Gregory, who was the instigator behind this pilgrimage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;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,â&#x20AC;? noted Bury in his final letter from Sicily. â&#x20AC;&#x153;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.â&#x20AC;? Operation Husky 2013 itself did not receive a lot of publicity. It was just by chance that Bury even found out about it himself, but he jumped at the chance to take part. He hopes that through projects such as the one in which he had the fortune to participate this summer, that history can still be honoured, as well as the men and women who line the pages of our history books, whose names may be displayed by markers, on cenotaphs and memorials, for their deeds and actions.

Man known for his ability to tear down impediments to economic growth named Business Person of the Year

Avoid â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fat Talkâ&#x20AC;? Oct. 20-26 Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Oct. 20-26 is Fat Talk Free Week. Everyone is invited to take the challenge to end â&#x20AC;&#x153;fat talkâ&#x20AC;? by thinking twice about using statements that are damaging to self-esteem and body image. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fat talkâ&#x20AC;? isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about being overweight. It is the language that we use about ourselves and others when we talk about dieting, losing weight and appearance. Think before using statements like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so fat.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I need to lose 10 poundsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too fat to be wearing that swimsuit.â&#x20AC;? Statements that are considered fat talk donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily have to be negative; they reinforce the need to be thin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You look great! Have you lost weight?â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to remove this Fat Talk from our conversations. Girls Incorporated of Upper Canada, in partnership with the Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark District Health Unit, ask everyone to accept this challenge to avoid negative language with ourselves and others regarding weight and appearance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When focus is put on weight or appearance, it is a problem because once someone believes the idea that they must be thin to be accepted in the world, they may do harmful things to their bodies such as diet, starve themselves or develop disordered eating to achieve an impossible beauty standard,â&#x20AC;? says Meena Tipper, Registered Dietitian with the Health Unit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When self-esteem and body image suffer, other risky behaviours can follow,â&#x20AC;? adds Tipper. Those interested can also check out the Girls Incorporated of Upper Canada Facebook Page as well as the website at www.girlsinc-uppercanada.org for daily tips and challenges to participate in daily during Fat Talk Free Week!

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Benefits of the spring bear hunt DEAR EDITOR:

A recent bear attack near Peterborough is an important reminder to people and provincial politicians in particular, (because bear management is a provincial responsibility) of the benefits of a spring bear hunt. Ontario’s spring bear hunt was a successful wildlife population management tool to assist in maintaining the abundance and density of bears at levels that minimized dangerous encounters between people and bears. On average, about 4,000 bears were harvested annually in the spring bear hunt, and about 70 per cent of these were male bears. Used in combination with a fall bear hunt, this two-pronged bear management system reduced bear densities, particularly male bears, and assisted in the control of the size of the bear population. This reduced aggression and cannibalism by male bears on other bears, predation on other species, such as deer fawns and moose calves, and reduced bear

problems with people including reducing the probability of dangerous encounters with the animals. With no spring bear hunt, there are now more problem bears in the spring, summer, and early fall because there are more bears in the population. Other methods to try and address problems with bears have failed. The cancellation of the spring bear hunt was not only bad for people and public safety, it was also bad for the bear population. Hunting black bears in the spring was a valuable wildlife management technique that successfully reduced bear densities, especially of adult male bears, thereby reducing cannibalism on other bears and problems for people.

COMMENTARY

Let the kids be kids

Editorial – Much like green is the new blue, Black and Orange Day is the new Halloween. Holy Cross Elementary School in Oxford-On-Rideau recently sent home a newsletter containing the shocking news that Halloween would not be celebrated in the traditional sense, as it has been for more than 250 years, but rather as an expression of colour. Costumes must be left at home. Trick-or-treating must not be uttered. However, black and orange clothing is acceptable, so long as you don’t greet people with the typical ‘Happy Halloween’ so many traditionalists have come to expect. From now on, you must say ‘Happy Black and Orange Day!’ If only it were a joke and yet, April Fools’ Day is so far in the future. This same news broke in Ottawa last year that, from now on, the innocent children would be deprived of their birthright, which is to dress up in scary costumes and have spooky fun once a year. Black and orange t-shirts hardly seem like a sufficient alternative. But rural eastern Ontario? Really? As culturally diverse a place as North Grenville is – it hardly seems necessary to implement Black and Orange Day on the off chance of offending a handful of people. And since when does donning a costume once a year offend anyone? A similar tale was recently reported in the Welland Tribune, that students at McKay Public School in Port Colborne were told they “wouldn’t be allowed to dress in traditional Halloween costumes this year.” While this paper has not been made aware of any schools locally that have been given the same mandate, the issue has stretched to a variety of locations throughout North America. The time to speak up is now. Being a kid in modern society, pardon our language, would stink. All the rules and regulations are a wee bit overdone. For the love of childhood, let the kids wear their Halloween costumes!

Uncle Johnny definitely thought chili sauce was worth a trip from Ottawa Lifestyle - The air in the kitchen hung heavy with the sweet smell of chili sauce. The blue granite pot simmered on the back of the Findlay Oval, and every few minutes Mother would take the big wood spoon and stir the chili sauce, sending out more serious smells. Jars of every size had already been washed and boiled and were now upside down on a clean flour-bag tea towel spread out on the bake table. Hopefully, by supper time, the chili sauce would be ready to be put in jars, and there would be an ample supply left over to slather on our plates. Father would put chili sauce on his pie if Mother would let him. He thought no meal was complete without it. When it had all been bottled, and the lids screwed on as tight as they would go, it was my sister Audrey’s job to carry the jars outside and down to the dug- out under the house, which served as our cellar. The two doors that rested flat against the outside of the house on a tilt were heavy and hard to open, and so I was spared from this chore, for which I was eternally grateful. I hated going down under the house, and into the dank dark hole that held our vegetables in a sand pit, and from swinging shelves

could be found preserves and pickles of every description. The shelves, suspended by two chains, was to assure the mice or any other vermin looking for a dark warm home would be unable to get to. Mother lined the shelves with folded copies of the Renfrew Mercury for further protection. Before Grandfather bought Mother a Barnett Ice Box, even our butter and milk were kept on the swinging shelves. And so, the many bottles of chili sauce would soon join the newly jarred preserves and pickles Mother had made from an ample garden that year. If we liked chili sauce, we had an uncle who liked it even more so, if that was possible. Uncle Johnny DeGray lived in Ottawa, but he and Aunt Vanetta often drove out to Northcote, a trip Father often said would be the last for the old Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

car that seemed to be hung together with binder twine and hairpins! In a failed attempt to make the car look presentable, Uncle Johnny had painted the four fenders, none of which matched in size or shape, a deep red. He said he did that because he lived next door to No. 2 Fire Station on Lyon Street, and he always loved the red fire engines, and was fast friends with all the firemen. On a summer evening, Uncle Johnny would join them in the driveway of the station, sitting on straight-back kitchen chairs, telling off-colour jokes and slapping their knees in gaiety. When Uncle Johnny and Aunt Vanetta came to visit, it was always an overnight trip from Ottawa. The couple was as different as night from day. Aunt Vanetta, tiny with snow white hair, and dressed as neat as a pin, and Uncle Johnny, tall, lanky, with a shiny pink head, completely devoid of hair, except for a small fringe around the back of his neck, was boisterous and loud. And when he laughed, which was often, you had to laugh with him, even if you didn’t know what the joke was all about! Uncle Johnny worked for the city of Ottawa, driving a monstrous black steam roller, which he named Babe!

How he loved to eat when he came to the farm! He would go to the smoke house and personally pick the roast of ham, or the long link of sausages he would like for a meal, which Mother thought was perfectly alright with her. She cooked up whatever he chose, and of course the table was laden with heaping bowls of potatoes, at least two different vegetables, and plates of freshly baked bread. Without even asking, Mother knew that Uncle Johnny would scan the table and if it wasn’t already there, he would say “don’t forget the chili sauce, Mabel”. Uncle Johnny didn’t believe much in saying Grace, even though Aunt Vanetta was a devout Catholic, never missing Mass, and carrying her Rosary beads in her pocket wherever she went, but at our table Grace was mandatory! I confess that during Grace, when Uncle Johnny and Aunt Vanetta were visiting, I kept my eyes open and on Uncle Johnny, and he kept his eyes on the bowl of chili sauce! He would load his plate like it was his last meal on earth, and then he would reach for the chili sauce, and just about empty the bowl! And if that wasn’t enough, when his plate had been wiped clean, he would lay

out two slices of heavily buttered bread, and cover them with more chili sauce wiping the bowl clean with a corner of the bread. Often he would undo the top button of his trousers, to ease the discomfort caused by the mounds of food he had eaten. But it didn’t matter how much he had on his plate, or how often he went back for seconds, he always had room for those slices of bread slathered with chili sauce. And when it was time for Uncle Johnny and Aunt Vanetta to head back to Ottawa, Mother would have tucked into the back of the old car a couple of freshly plucked chickens, vegetables from the cellar, and always two or three jars of chili sauce. Uncle Johnny would take the old car robe in the back seat, and wrap the chili sauce jars tight so that they wouldn’t come to some bad fate on the way back to Ottawa.

Positive signs emerge from Brockville and 1000 Islands Tourism Forum By DOREEN BARNES

News – The fifth annual Brockville and 1000 Islands Tourism Forum took place on Wednesday, Oct. 2 at the Brockville Memorial Civic Centre Community Room. Such topics as Garden Tourism, the rebranding of the new organized Arts Council of the Thousand Islands (formerly the Brockville Arts Council), the Great Waterway (RT0 9), FAB experiences and a review by Brockville Tourism were all on the agenda. According to Steve Weir, tourism manager for Brockville and 1000 Islands Tourism, Brockville had a banner year, especially with being the First Port of Call on the Tall Ships 1812 Tour. “It was amazing,” said Weir of the Tall Ships 1812 Tour. “Well done Brockville!” He mentioned additional sites that also had very positive experiences, such as Doors Open, Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Ribfest and other celebratory events, namely Brockville’s Railway Tunnel induction into the Railway Hall of Fame. Individuals from the various attractions, museums, organizations and regions, all related to tourism, had an opportunity to introduce themselves and speak about their ongoing accomplishments. “We have a really strong fall and our Christmas line-up has 18 shows coming up,” said Peter Dunn, administrator of cultural programs at the Brockville Arts Centre, “and are headed to a record year.” As for the Comfort Inn, it was mentioned that there will be extensive reno-

Brockville Country Club director, member and volunteer Jack Kenny mentioned the annual world class Shorty Jenkins Curling Classic which attracts the best curlers from around the globe. “We are also becoming an entertainment centre,” said Kenny. “We have hosted dinner shows (some with dancing) and have become a large event hall.” The club has transformed the curling rink during the summer months into a very pleasant venue with all the comforts, making this site a year round

operation. “Next year is the club’s 100th anniversary,” said Kenny. “So you will see a lot of things there right from a New Year’s Gala to other major events.” Outside of Brockville, MerrickvilleWolford mayor Doug Struthers spoke about challenges and opportunities. “In Merrickville, we continue to move forward with the economic development from the municipal perspective of what we do well which is engaging people in the community with the wonderful events we have, from Christmas in Merrickville to our annual car show,” he said. As for the Town of Prescott, former and longest serving mayor Sandra Lawn, currently chair of the Downtown Board Improvement Area, indicated they are making great strides. “We really picked up on the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival and the downtown on the theme of the War of 1812 to 1814,” said Lawn. “One of the important things to note is that at the Shakespeare Festival, at least 25 per cent of our audience came from Ottawa.” Biosphere Reserve meeting Another positive tourism initiative for this area came from Gary Clarke, vice chair of the Canadian Biosphere Reserves Association when he spoke of the upcoming Biosphere Reserve meeting. “Brockville will be host to the first

ever meeting of Biosphere Reserves of Europe and North America,” said Clarke. “I started to work on this event a year ago. It will be the largest meeting of this group that has ever taken place and most remarkably, the first time outside of Europe.” Clarke noted they have had to cut off registration. “We will have a positive economic impact in this region and in Canada, that I calculate will be in excess of a million dollars,” shared Clarke. “A number of you will be the benefactors.” International Summit on Sustainable Tourism The Frontenac Arch Biosphere and various sponsors are presenting the International Summit on Sustainable Tourism on Saturday, Oct. 19 at Glen House Resort. “It’s an educational event on how to take advantage of new opportunities of the sustainable tourism market,” said Clarke. Presenters include Jonathan B. Tourtellot, Erika Harms, Tim O’Donoghue, Richard G. Edwards and Gary Clarke, who are some of the leading experts in the world on tourism. Clarke was asked by tourism operators and others why they should attend this meeting; his answer was very straight forward. “Because tourism businesses in Ontario are marketing to a dying segment,” shared Clarke. “For the next two de-

cades, sustainable tourism is identified as the significant growth opportunity, the major opportunity in tourism. It is where the action will be and yet in this region we are failing to take advantage of it.” He feels the rest of the world is passing us by. Clarke mentioned England, Scotland, Iceland or New Zealand or Sweden, who are marketing very actively to this new segment and Canada is not. “We have assets that are as good as anyone has,” said Clarke. “You cannot imagine a region with two UNESCO designations and a National Geographic Tourism designation, a national park and on and on. We are not doing a very job of promoting.” Continuing Clarke indicated that the biggest problem in tourism along this corridor is that the United States market is right there and they have stopped coming to this region. “We can see what the market studies say they are looking for, but we are not offering that kind of experience,” he said. “What is stopping us is the lack of leadership, both nationally and provincially. Our Canadian Office of Tourism doesn’t specifically identify sustainable tourism as an opportunity. In Ontario we have no provincial strategy geared to sustainable tourism and our provincial association has not come to grips with, should they be lobbying the province to create such a strategy.”

Lifestyle - A grand unveiling of an historical exhibit featuring local family, the Clearys, was held Saturday, Sept. 28 at Spencerville Mill. This project represents the Mill Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to capture oral histories from seniors in the community and to reflect how the community was developed and shaped by its people. The exhibit will be available for viewing each weekend up to Thanksgiving, and as a part of summer 2014 tours. Through artifacts and archival photographs the exhibit features an overview of the seven generations of Clearys who chose to make Spencerville their home. It also shows off the community spirit of this local family and their continued use of technological advances on their farm. Developed by Rebecca Lawrence, community heritage intern, the family history project is the beginning of a new exhibit that will be changed every year featuring a chosen local family which has had an impact on the development of Spencerville and area and continues to display community spirit. In her welcoming address to visitors attending the opening of the Cleary exhibit, Mill Foundation director Sandra Robertson said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Much has been written over the years about the township and its people. However, the written word only conveys so much information, often the little stories told by grandfather or the great aunt is lost. Pictures, unless the name is noted on the back, the identity

COPS asks city to withdraw OPP costing request News - The COPS (Citizens Offering Police Support) committee is requesting Brockville city council withdraw its request for OPP costing. With the COPS committee wanting to keep the 181-year-old police force in service, it’s looking for the city to cancel its existing request for a quote for services from the provincial police. The OPP and the province have announced new costing requests are deferred until at least September 2014. The announcement stated the OPP needed to review the proposed billing reform with 324 different communities. The final billing reform will be implemented in 2015 in what is expected to be a long and difficult

process. The COPS committee is asking that city council not leave this issue hanging over the heads of Brockville’s citizens, city police officers and civilian employees for that duration. In addition, the deferral until at least September 2014 will make Brockville’s decision the responsibility of the next elected mayor and council. This council should cancel the current costing request and allow the next council to decide on an OPP costing. COPS believes the current council should not burden the next council with an outdated motion. Submitted by the COPS committee.

Anti-bullying program at St. Francis Xavier Events – On Friday, Oct. 4, Brockville Chief of Police Service John Gardiner and Sergeant Doug Locke attended an Anti-Bullying assembly called WITS (walk away, ignore, talk it out and seek help), at St. Francis Xavier Catholic School in Brockville. This is the third year this pilot program has run at this school and the first year or launch in all the other Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario schools. As for the older students, they become WITS leaders in the school and explore the problem solving-based method of look and listen, explore points of view, act, did it work and seek help. St. Francis Xavier students have hand gestures to accompany the acronym WITS, and to assist the very young children to remember and make visual association with each step. Each student receives a WITS special Constable Badge, an official handshake and a password, Huddy, Huddy, as a Walrus welcome. Brockville Police Services Sergeant Doug Locke, Chief John Gardiner, student support worker Cheryl Burton and a WITS champion for the school, plus principal Dawn Fever recite the Walrus Gift Story. The Walrus in the background is the school mascot called WITSUP.

Corcoran shared her dream, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that there shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be one student graduate from school in Gananoque, Kingston or Brockville, that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been exposed to the theatre.â&#x20AC;? Corcoran was thrilled to announce the continuation of the playwrights unit, adding that five local playwrights have been coming together once a month, to read out loud, and work on plays that they are developing. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playwrights will all end up with a full length play by the end of the year and on Dec. 3 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7; there will be free public readings of those scripts at 8 p.m. each night.

This is the story of an unspeakably ugly man who turns to plastic surgery to improve his career and his love life. However, his plan turns into a nightmare when the surgeon begins to offer the same face he has been given, to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;anyone who will pay.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; From Aug. 29 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sept. 20, the Playhouse presents Waiting for the Parade.

Entertainment - Artistic director Ashlie Corcoran of The Thousand Islands Playhouse unveiled the spectacular 2014 season on Oct. 8 to a full house. Richard Van Dusen, general manager of the Thousand Islands Playhouse, presented the opening remarks, happily announcing â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 2013 season was both an artistic and a box office success!â&#x20AC;? He continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have one final production to the 2013 season, Salt-Water Moon. This is an excellent production, not to be missed.â&#x20AC;? He expressed gratitude towards sponsors, patrons and donors, pointing out that their support helps to increase the quality of each of their productions, but also forges strong relationships, letting everyone know that this theatre is â&#x20AC;&#x153;important to the community, the region, the province and soon enough, the country.â&#x20AC;? Before disclosing the line-up of the upcoming season, Corcoran took a moment to thank everyone for their ongoing support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just been so thrilled with the Playhouse audiences this year. Our audience has been laughing with us. Our audience has been in the aisle singing along. Our audience has been scared with us, in Third Floor; romanticized with us. I think our audience even took a few risks with us this last season, and I really appreciate that.â&#x20AC;? The season will open with a bang, showing Driving Miss Daisy from May 16 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; June 14. Produced in association with Western Canada Theatre in Kamloops, B.C., this touching story tells the tale of a wealthy widow and her chauffeur. Starring in this production will be Nicola Lipman who has just recently finished performing in No Great Mischief at the Playhouse. Up next in the line-up they will present She Loves Me, from the book by Joe Masteroff, from June 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; July 19. This

News – Earlier in the day on Saturday, Oct. 5, the public was invited to the YMCA of Brockville and Area to hear about and view the $200,000 capital investment that had been made. According to Sueling Ching, chief executive officer, the open house was a means to share the upgrades made to the facilities and how it is in line with the organization’s five-year strategic plan. “We want to invite everyone to become part of a movement that we hope will create a healthy community,” said Ching. “We want to serve more people and have a greater impact on their health. The call to action is for people to get involved with the “Y”, to make decisions that create a healthier life for themselves and that in turn, will create a healthy community and strong children.” The reason for this investment and update of the “Y’s” strategic plan was to be more in line with what can be done regarding the declining health of Canadians. As mentioned by the chair of the board of directors the YMCA of Brockville and Area, Sarah Piracha, the outlook for the health of Canadians is not good. “Data shows on average that in the province of Ontario the highest income earners make 12 and a half times more than our lowest income earner,” indicated Piracha. “They (lower income earner) fare much worse. When we look at quality life indicators we see obesity, low literacy, heart disease, mental illness and crime. On the subject of health care, unhealthy life styles cost us $0.42 out of every dollar. Without change, it is going to rise to

Twenty per cent of our young people report high incidence of substance abuse, anxiety and depression. So, what can we do? We as a “Y”, have a plan to do more. We need to respond quickly and boldly to

the leading trends that are affecting our kids and our families.” Piracha also feels that building a healthy community supports economic benefits. So, the YMCA of Brockville and Area is aiming towards accessibility for all. “The YMCA is determined to make a change in this community and to work in strong partnership with other organizations, private industry and with our levels of government in order to make that happen” said Ching. “In short, we intend to extend our reach, so that we are engaging more people in the YMCA in physical activity and healthy living. As volunteers and leaders, we also want to do it in a way that will have a greater impact on the health of Canadians at a deeper level.” Ching explained the current changes made in the “Y” which included the latest internal colour scheme, the new cardio equipment (Jacob’s Ladder, spin bikes, treadmills, rowing machine), new strength equipment and the layout which should help with membership growth and the health of members. “We have an exciting membership drive coming up in mid-October,” indicated Ching, “for future members, a twoweek access pass so they can come in and try out the “Y”. As well the fundraising luncheons are starting up again and some new fun events; a spin-a-thon, a craft show and activities around Peace Week, a National “Y” initiative.” To find out more about programs at the YMCA of Brockville and Area, go to www.brockvilley.com, or call 613-3427961.

Business – Housing starts in Canada were trending at 190,492 units in September compared to 188,440 in August, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). The trend is a six-month moving average of the monthly seasonally adjusted annual rates (SAAR) of housing starts. “The trend in total housing starts edged up slightly in September, while remaining close to the range of roughly 182,000 to 188,000 units that was observed between March and August of 2013. This recent moderate gain is consistent with sales of existing homes, which have trended higher since February 2013. The trend in the new home market typically lags the trend in the existing home market,” said Mathieu Laberge, Deputy Chief Economist at CMHC. CMHC uses the trend measure as a complement to the monthly SAAR of housing starts to account for considerable swings in monthly estimates and obtain a more complete picture of the state of the housing market. In some situations analyzing only SAAR data can be misleading in some markets, as they are largely driven by the multiples segment of the markets which can be quite volatile from one month to the next. The standalone monthly SAAR was 193,637 units in September, an increase from 183,964 in August. The SAAR of urban starts increased by 4.3 per cent in September to 177,240 units. Multiple urban starts increased by 5.9 per cent to 113,705 units in September while the single urban starts segment saw an increase of 1.4 per cent to 63,535 units. In September, the seasonally adjusted annual rate of urban starts increased in Atlantic Canada, the Prairies, British Columbia and Quebec, and decreased in Ontario. Rural starts were estimated at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 16,397 units.

When choosing colours for a room, you should always keep in mind its function and style, as well as the atmosphere you wish to create. Some colours produce a relaxing effect, while others radiate energy. Here are a few tips to help you to create colour schemes that suit your tastes and that will give the visual impact you’re looking for. A single colour in different tones and nuances — either darker or lighter and more or less saturated — can unify an open space and create an elegant, harmonious, and uniform atmosphere. For a subtle décor with a bit more zing, use one main colour and enhance it with one or two neighbouring shades on the colour wheel. For example, you might try a blue accompanied by a few touches of violet. For a striking and spectacular effect, opt for complementary colours, which are those directly opposite one another on the colour wheel. You can also achieve a balanced look by putting together three colours that are positioned

Choose complementary colours (those opposite each other on the colour wheel) to create a striking effect. at the points of an equilateral triangle on the colour wheel. If you decide to go for a classic décor of all white, or black and white, you can liven up this sober and elegant look by using a brightly coloured accessory. Both pale and dark grey blend well with pastel colours. Combining a neutral shade with polished copper, patinated brass, or a golden pink will add a metallic note to a large surface. For the same effect but in a smaller dose, use the same tones on a few accessories.

Where Quality is Remembered… long after the price is forgotten! www.floorandwallcentre.com 26 ST. LAWRENCE EMC - Thursday, October 17, 2013


In an ideal world your home wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need any upkeep; the seasons would change and the years would go by without you having to do any repairs or renovations. The hard reality, however, is a little different! Your home must be maintained properly in order for you to benefit from all its comforts for as long as possible. A thorough inspection at this time of year will help you protect and enjoy your investment. HERE ARE A FEW NECESSARY STEPS TO PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR THE WINTER â&#x20AC;˘ Check that all doors and windows are airtight. Replace any weatherstripping if necessary. â&#x20AC;˘ Remove any dead leaves from the gutters and run water in the downspout to ensure that it drains well. â&#x20AC;˘ Empty and put away the garden hose. â&#x20AC;˘ Contact a specialized professional to check your heating system. â&#x20AC;˘ Ensure that your chimney is not blocked; have it cleaned by a chimney sweep. â&#x20AC;˘ Vacuum the baseboard heaters in order to remove accumulated dust as well as the grills and ducts of a forced air heating system. â&#x20AC;˘ Measure the level of the sewage sludge in your septic tank in case it needs emptying (this should be done every three years). â&#x20AC;˘ Remove the screens to prevent condensation on the windows and to let in as much sunshine as possible. The heat and light of the sun are so welcome in the winter time! â&#x20AC;˘ Check the smoke detectors and the carbon monoxide alarms. Replace the batteries. â&#x20AC;˘ Have your well water analyzed (a bacterial analysis should be done every six months). â&#x20AC;˘ Prepare any garden plants that need to be protected for the winter and put away your garden furniture.

Give your yard some tender loving care Every fall, conscientious homeowners do maintenance work on their homes in order to prepare for the winter. But what about the yard, the deck, and the flower beds? These jobs will only take up a few hours of your time, but they ensure that your outdoor living area will remain beautiful for years to come. First of all, if your patio or deck is dirty, clean the stones or deck planks

thoroughly with a stiff brush in order to avoid even more dirt building up over the winter. If this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sufficient, use a pressure washer. This way youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll only have to give it a light cleaning when spring returns, and you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to waste any time before basking in the warmth of the sun. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough room to store your garden furniture in the shed

APPROVED PARTNER

IS IT TIME TO CONVERT?

or garage, cover everything with a good quality cover. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden furniture is elegant and sometimes expensive, so it should be taken care of in order to protect your investment. Ensure that the covers are strapped down so that they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blow away during a winter storm. The same applies to your barbecue. Where the yard is concerned, be sure

to cut the grass back to a height of five centimetres, which is ideal for the winter. Leave the grass cuttings on the lawn. You can do the same thing with dead leaves. The lawn mower will mulch them, providing an excellent fertilizer for your lawn. Lastly, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to empty the earth out of your flower pots or they will crack during the first heavy frosts.

A wide range of self-sticking film is available, including transparent, opaque, frosted, coloured, patterned, or with geometrical lines. Window film has many advantages; above all, it is esthetically pleasing and offers multiple decorating possibilities. It is great in kitchens to embellish islands, fixed or sliding partitions, or doors to other rooms. It can also be used directly on the windows of your home as a dressing, which allows you to create a personalized dĂŠcor.

Many people think of their kitchen as the heart of their home, a living space where they spend hours preparing food, eating, and cleaning up every day. That’s why the efficient use of space is a very important element in any kitchen. One design rule has proved its worth over the years: the work triangle. Here is a short geometry lesson for those who aren’t familiar with this concept. First of all, the three main zones of the kitchen are the cooking zone (stove and microwave), washing zone (sink, dishwasher, garbage and recycling bins), and provisions zone (refrigerator, cupboards, and pantry). These three zones have to be situated at a practical distance from one another in order to create a user-friendly kitchen. Together they should form a triangle which, in an ideal scenario, has three equal (or almost equal) sides. A FEW TIPS • Avoid placing the fridge, sink, or stove at an angle • Plan to have enough standing room in front of each appliance (at least 120 cm), especially when there are two facing each other • Position the dishwasher to the right of the sink to facilitate rinsing the dishes and placing them in the dishwasher (if you’re right-handed) • Position the storage zone (cupboards and drawers where dishes are stored) between the provisions zone and the washing zone • Position the work zone (countertops) close to the cooking zone and the washing zone

For a user-friendly kitchen the fridge, sink, and stove should form a triangle.

R0012362471_1017

Events - On Friday, Oct. 18, at 3:30 p.m., the community of Seeley’s Bay will give thanks to the many private donors and public funding organizations that have helped to make Seeley’s Bay Steps Up a reality, at an official ceremony at Haskin’s Point. This historic point of land on the Rideau Canal system has recently been rejuvenated with new furnishings, sustainable naturalized landscaping, erosion control, and a restored swimming area. “I am proud that the Ontario Trillium Fund has made such a significant investment in the restoration of Haskin’s Point and in the future of Seeley’s Bay,” said Steve Clark, MPP for Leeds and Grenville. “This site has been a cherished playground of area residents for generations and the beautiful improvements mean it will continue to be a perfect spot where everyone can swim, fish, and relax for many years to come.” The work at Haskin’s Point and other improvements throughout the village were also made possible with financial assistance from the 1000 Islands Community Development Corporation. “The Rideau Canal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the waterway around Seeley’s Bay is a particularly interesting part of the Rideau system for visitors to see,” said Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds and Grenville. “Colonel By was able to engineer this part of the canal by taking advantage of ‘drowned lands’ that resulted from the construction of early mills at Morton and Washburn... This community initiative is an ideal investment opportunity for the Eastern Ontario Development Program and I am very pleased that the federal government was able to be a partner in this project.” “The residents of Seeley’s Bay ‘dared to dream’ and worked hard to plan Seeley’s Bay Steps Up, to raise funds, and to implement this project,” said Frank Kinsella, Mayor of the Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands. “All three levels of government invested in this work, but even more significantly, local donors in Seeley’s Bay have contributed over $22,000 to this effort which is a remarkable sum for a village of this size.” “This community has terrific assets,” said Liz Huff, the volunteer who coordinates Seeley’s Bay Steps Up for the Seeley’s Bay Area Residents Association. “The spectacular physical location of the village on the Rideau and within the Frontenac Arch Biosphere, the many

MPP calls for judicial inquiry over gas plant scandal Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m convinced only the threat of a jail door slamming behind them will force Premier Wynne, former premier Dalton McGuinty and everyone else involved to finally start telling the truth.â&#x20AC;? At the same time as calling for a judicial inquiry, Clark urged the NDP to support the PC Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-confidence motion in the government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be standing in my place voting to bring down this scandal-plagued government and give residents of LeedsGrenville what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re overwhelmingly telling me they want: a chance to pass judgment on this government at the ballot box,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard for me to understand how the NDP could â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yet again â&#x20AC;&#x201C; deny Ontarians the opportunity they so clearly deserve.â&#x20AC;? Submitted by the offices of MPP for Leeds-Grenville Steve Clark.

For the past year, the government has played games and refused to answer questions at legislative committee hearings looking into the cancellation of the Oakville and Mississauga gas plants, notes a press release. Those attempts to cover up the true costs of the decision to save five Liberal MPPsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; seats in the last election were exposed recently with the release of the Auditor Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report, said Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That $1.1 billion could fund this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Way of Leeds and Grenville campaign goal of $1,075,000 for more than 1,000 years or provide the $300,000 in annual funding Sherwood Park Manor is seeking from local municipalities for 3,600 years,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sickening abuse of the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trust and one of the biggest political scandals in the history of our province.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to force the Liberal government to face the threat of jail time in order to finally get to the bottom of the billion-dollar gas plants scandal, says Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Auditor-General has confirmed PC MPPs like me were right when we said this scandal would cost taxpayers $1 billion. Now, we need to see some consequences for the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions,â&#x20AC;? said Clark, who noted the OPP are also investigating the government following a complaint by the Ontario PC Official Opposition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to launch a judicial inquiry to hold those responsible for making these outrageous decisions accountable. Hauling Liberal cabinet ministers in front of a judge who can send them to jail if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell the truth is the only way to ensure it happens.â&#x20AC;?

IN MEMORIAM

A huge thank you to Dr. Van Jaarsveld and the wonderful staff at Brockville General Emergency for the speedy service and care during my recent illness. Thanks to the caring staff at Bayshore, especially Peggy McKenzie, for making the trip to Mallorytown in that bad storm to take care of me. Thanks also to Dr Brooks and his staff for their care now and all year round. Cornelis Van Der Linden

Wow! What a surprise birthday party. I had no idea, of my party, and after my legs stopped shaking it was a pleasure to chat with comrades, friends, neighbours, relatives and family from near and far. Many thanks for all the cards, flowers and gifts, and most of all thank you to everyone who attended and brought food, so-o-good. Ray, a special thanks to you and Susan for all the secrecy. You even removed pages from the paper so I would not see the announcement. In all, it was a great afternoon. Thanks again Shirley Martin PS: had my “Red Lobster” Monday evening, at home.

ALGUIRE, Bob – In loving memory of a beloved husband who passed away October 13, 2003. I once had something special, That money couldn’t buy, I had a very special man, Who had to say good-bye. You suffered much in silence, Your spirits did not bend, You faced your pain with courage, Until the very end. Our memories and photos Are all I have to touch, Of a very special husband, Whom I love and miss so much. And when I feel so lonely, And tears will fill my eyes, I think of you at peace, And know I shouldn’t cry. So I try to hide my heartache, As you would want me to, And when I cry my tears alone, Nobody hears but you. Cherished forever, your wife Dorothy.

Thumbs up! Events – A party was held that day, all day, to thank all of the Brockville Animal Hospital’s Facebook followers. They committed to holding a party once they received 1,000 likes and now sit above that number. Followers were invited to come and enjoy a coffee or donut, and treats were available for pets. Tilly’s Trail, and the new gazebo was also available for folks to peruse and check out. The Facebook page was launched just over six months ago and can be found by looking up Brockville Animal Hospital on Facebook. It contains fun informational material, as well as updates about what the BAH is doing in and for the community.

Follow-up to the session saw an online survey take place, the feedback from that resulted in this business seminar, which was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Directly relating to the top issues identified from our business community.â&#x20AC;? The day attracted over 50 registrants, noted Anne MacDonald, executive director for the Chamber, that morning. She was confident there was a good lineup of speakers to address the issues GdjiZ brought forward, and with the trade show compo:@%%' nent, she felt the day was well rounded. She also expressed her hope that the Oct. 8 seminar would be the first of many. Dave Paul, director of economic development for the City of Brockville, noted sessions like this one are important, and need to happen more often. He noted important issues which are of concern for the economy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including succession, as well 8Vgg^Zgd[i]ZBdci] as skills development need to be reacted to earlier rather than later. Canada, he said, is one of a handful of countries facing employment issues as a reE^ooVE^ooV sult of an aging population. ^hegdjY And, as mentioned earlier, Henderson noted adaptability is key.

Kim Benson, with the 1000 Islands Community Development Corporation and Steve Lefave of the Grenville Community Futures Development Corporation spoke of what their agencies offer, including funding for small businesses, particularly for those who perhaps arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to get a regular bank loan. Their presentation took place during the Sustainability and Growth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; From People to Process seminar Oct. 8, at the Brockville Convention Centre. and entrepreneurial training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have people with talents and skills who are unemployed and we put than back to work,â&#x20AC;? Benson noted, through the help of the program. The centre also provides information, advice, workshops and seminars. Paul, acting as master of ceremonies for the day, encouraged the audience to use the government assistance programs which are available to them, in order to enhance their margins of profitability. Kevin Savoy, a business coach, during a panel discussion on â&#x20AC;&#x153;More Cash in the Tillâ&#x20AC;? advised the audience on ways to increase their revenue over expenses. Shelley Bacon, of Northern Cables, spoke about how his company has adapted to the market they have been faced with this year.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a very difficult year in the economy,â&#x20AC;? he said. Noting if the year was to be a reasonably successful one, that his approach to 2013 was â&#x20AC;&#x153;be prepared to work with the client.â&#x20AC;? Which includes building specialty products, responding to need quickly as well as reacquainting the customers with what the company has to offer. For example, changing up the signature portion of an email to explain about various offers. He also suggested offering rewards and incentives, as well as product capability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Try to make yourself attractive to potential customers,â&#x20AC;? he commented, and referring to Mayor Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening speech, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is vicious, it is extremely competitive out there. Make yourself attractive (to customers) it does pay dividends.â&#x20AC;?

Sweet kitten abandoned by owners, ready for a new home now Lifestyle - In early September 2013, Bella’s family packed up their belongings and drove away. A kind neighbour just assumed they would be back and fed her for about a week. She soon realized that the owners had abandoned Bella and so she brought her into the shelter. This sweet girl needs a real family who will value her enough to include her as part of the family. Bella has been fixed and vaccinated and is ready to go home. If you come to our Fall Gently Used Clothing Bazaar this Saturday, Oct. 19 at our shelter (weather permitting) you can browse our great collection of fallwinter clothing, relax with a coffee, a hot dog and some homemade treats, and step inside the shelter to visit Bella and all the other sweeties who so deserve real families and homes. The shelter is at 85 Hwy. 32 just north of Gananoque and the 401. Watch for our signs. You are the donors who sustain us and keep our shelter active and able to treat abandoned pets like Bella with compassion. We have coats, jackets, vintage items, sweaters, accessories, jewelry and more, in excellent condition and just waiting to be discovered by you. Adult sizes. Rain date will be Oct. 26.
