Once again volunteers will be collecting donations to the Brockville and Area Food Bank and the Kinsmen’s snowsuit drive. The parade is partially funded by the City of Brockville and in addition the organizers will be looking to independently raise dollars to cover expenses.

The service began with the honour guard approaching, walking the length of the service area, and each individual honour guard dropping off at their specific post along the way.

News - Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville, today encouraged people to donate to the Red Cross to help those affected by Typhoon Haiyan. “The Canadian government will match Canadians’ donations dollar for dollar,� he notes. The Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of International Development and Minister for La Francophonie, and the Honourable John Baird, Minister of Foreign Affairs, have already announced Canadian support to address the catastrophic effects of the typhoon on the Philippines. On Saturday Minister Paradis announced that Canada will provide up to $5 million in support to humanitarian organizations striving to meet the needs of the people affected by this typhoon in the Philippines and surrounding regions. On Sunday he announced the further matching funds. Emergency relief activities will include the provision of emergency shelter, food, water, livelihood support, and other essential services. “Canada is deeply concerned by the impact of this catastrophic typhoon,� said Paradis. “We continue to monitor the situation closely and are working with Canadian and international humanitarian partners to determine what assistance is required.� The situation related to Typhoon Haiyan is evolving rapidly. The strongest typhoon this year, it slammed into the Philippines on Friday, Nov. 8, 2013, setting off landslides, knocking out power in several provinces, and cutting communications in the country’s central region of island provinces. The typhoon was expected to track toward Vietnam, where it was expected to make landfall on Nov. 10. Significant loss of life, some estimates as high as 10,000 or more, a large number of injuries, as well as destruction of property, have been report-

George Lambert and veteran Don Bain stand to attention and salute; the 2013 Silver Cross Mother Adeline Dingman lays a wreath on behalf of all mothers across the country who have lost children in the service of their country. Assisting with the laying of the wreaths was veteran Barry Elliott; prior to laying wreaths, SD&G Highlanders veteran Jim Sheflin read out the names of those individuals and companies whose wreaths were pre-laid. In the background are Lt. Col. S. Herron and the Brockville Rifles.

Ward: Rear of Leeds and Lansdowne Official Plan Designation: Area of Natural and Scientific Interest, Flood Plain, Provincial Park, Highly Sensitive Lake Trout Lakes Special Policy Area Zoning Designation: Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI) PURPOSE AND EFFECT OF APPLICATION: A request to amendment the Township’s Official Plan and Zoning By-law was received by the owners of the subject lands. The purpose of the amendments are to re-designate the lands from ‘Provincial Park’ and ‘Area of Natural and Scientific Interest’ to ‘Rural’ in the Official Plan and to re-zone the lands from a ‘Area of Natural and Scientific Interest” (ANSI) Zone to a site-specific Shoreline Residential (RS) Zone. This re-designation and re-zoning will place the lands in a more appropriate category in the Official Plan and the Zoning By-law, recognizing the long-standing residential use of the lands. The previous zoning by-laws for the Former Municipality of Rear of Leeds and Lansdowne identified the subject property as ‘Open Space’, and this was carried over as an ‘Area of Natural and Scientific Interest’ (ANSI) Zone with the passing of Zoning By-Law No. 07-079. The property has been identified as not being within an identified ANSI or the boundaries of Charleston Lake Provincial Park. The effect of these applications is that the existing residential use will be recognized as a permitted use in the Official Plan designation and a legal and conforming use in the Zoning By-law.

were clearly touched by the remarks, the prayers of remembrance and especially the touching display by Front of Yonge Elementary students who, rather than sing, signed through a song that left many with tears in their eyes. Student involvement The children of the Front of Yonge Elementary School in Mallorytown are always deeply involved in the ceremony each year. Norah Roberts of the RCL explains. “The children always come. They always stand at the crosses and move the flags from the back to the front.” “When the name is called out, the honour guard salutes; that is focusing on that particular person. Each cross has one of the children and one of the honour guards standing at it,” she continued. Of the 19 servicemen honoured at the Remembrance Road Ceremony, there are six from WWI, 12 from WWII and one from Afghanistan. There are still five local servicemen to be honoured in the coming years and then the process will begin again. Once the Legion has chosen which soldier will be specifically honoured each year, they do everything possible to find a living relative to come and lay the wreath during the ceremony. Sometimes, as in McKee’s situation, there are no living relatives. In such cases, one of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets is bestowed the honour.

There continues to be a mismatch between the education and skills held by many people seeking work and the qualifications sought by employers with job openings. According to the Conference Board of Canada, the skills mismatch costs Ontario’s economy as much as $24.3 billion a year in lost economic activity. And there’s the human cost, as many young people remain unemployed or underemployed while good-paying jobs go unfilled in areas ranging from the electrical trades and manufacturing to health care and financial services.

Opinion – As the provincial government looks to tackle the skills mismatch and develop new strategies to help more young people find meaningful work, it will be important to do a better job promoting post-secondary programs with a career-specific focus. A key step would be to elevate higher education in Ontario to international standards by allowing colleges to start offering three-year degree programs. The current situation in Ontario is unusual. In most of the world, graduates of three-year post-secondary programs earn degrees when they complete their studies, regardless of whether the programs are in liberal arts or applied studies. However, graduates of the three-year programs at Ontario’s colleges can only earn diplomas. And it’s not clear why this restriction continues to exist. The three-year programs at Ontario’s colleges are as strong as the careerfocused three-year programs in other jurisdictions. As well, many of Ontario’s three-year college programs already meet the province’s learning standards for baccalaureate education. Furthermore, colleges have proven experience delivering degree programs. At St. Lawrence College we already offer degree programs at the fouryear level, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Bachelor of Business Administration, both in partnership

employers are seeking post-secondary graduates who hold degrees and have career-specific skills. And many parents and students are interested in postsecondary programs that offer degrees. In some cases, graduates attain a degree and career-specific skills by completing combinations of both college and university education. In fact, reforms are needed to help more students pursue a mix of both college and university. But for qualified students who are primarily interested in applied programs, there should be more opportunities to pursue degree studies at college. This will be particularly important as St. Lawrence College president the province works to convince greater

comprehensive strategy to help more young people acquire the advanced skills and qualifications they need to succeed. Ensuring that colleges offer a robust range of degree, diploma and certificate programs is just part of the solution. Still, reforms that allow Ontario colleges to offer three-year degree programs would mark an important step forward. The change would send a clear signal that Ontario is ready to join other provinces in valuing and promoting career-specific post-secondary programs. And it would help greater numbers of people achieve long-term success in their careers.

COMMENTARY

Make hunting season as safe as possible Editorial – Staying safe while hunting out in the wilderness has more to do than just donning that fluorescent orange coat or hat. We are right in the middle of hunting season and many area hunters are taking to the fields for the sport, but the Ontario Provincial Police are encouraging people to take certain precautions so the experience doesn’t end in tragedy. If duck hunting, make sure to take boating safety equipment, as well as extra survival gear in the event it’s required. All passengers on a boat must have life jackets and be sure to tell a loved one when you depart and your estimated time to return home. Those making early morning or evening excursions should also have proper navigation lights.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR ‘Fat talk’ isn’t about overweight and obese

Mary’s brothers always argued over hand-me-down box Lifestyle – The station master had called that morning. It didn’t matter what Father had planned for the day, it would have to be put on hold. More important was going into Renfrew and bringing home the hand-me-down box that had arrived from Regina. When we got home from school, there it was, sitting in the middle of the kitchen …a big square wooden box that at one time had held bulk tea. It was lined with a kind of foil, and until it was opened after supper, there it would sit with its lid nailed shut. Of course, we didn’t lay a finger on it until after the kitchen had been ‘redded’ up, and our hands washed. I was never sure why we had to wash our hands before we could touch a dirty wood box that had come all the way from Regina on the train! Finally, we were ready. We sat around the box on kitchen chairs while Everett pried the lid off with a crowbar. There would be nothing in it but boys clothes, since Aunt Lizzie, the sender of

the hand-me-down box had only sons, and there was really nothing in the box to interest my sister Audrey and me. So often we chose to sit at the kitchen table looking through Eaton’s catalogue while my three brothers and Mother pawed through the big box of clothes. Father, of course, showed no interest at all. He was in his usual position in front of the Findlay Oval, half asleep in the rocking chair. But that night, Audrey and I joined the circle as piece after piece of boys’ clothes, along with pants and jackets that had belonged to Uncle Jack, were taken out. Down in the very bottom was a pair

of men’s shiny shoes. Well! Emerson grabbed them before anyone else had a chance and claimed them as his own. The brothers had a pair each of well worn laced boots kept for church, and gum rubbers which they wore to school. Never had any of the three owned a pair of shiny black leather shoes. Everett thought because he was the oldest, they should belong to him. Emerson roared that he saw them first, and said there would be a ‘roary’ eyed fight if Everett tried to claim them. “They don’t look like they fit you,” Mother said. There was no doubt Emerson was bigger by far than Everett, but Emerson already had his gum rubbers off and cramming his stockinged feet into the shoes. He was getting red in the face, and it didn’t take a genius to see that the shoes were a good inch shorter than Emerson’s enormous feet, but he was going to own them and that’s all there was to it. Before there was any further discussion, he carried the shoes upstairs

and put them under the bed he shared with Earl and dared anyone to lay a finger on them! He never once tried them on all week, but every night he brought them downstairs and rubbed them with an old piece of long ‘johns’ from the rag bag. “I’ll be wearing those to church on Sunday,” he announced every night. Well, Sunday came, and after the morning chores, we all got dressed for church. Emerson came downstairs, walking like he had a bag of potatoes under his pants, but wearing the new shoes. Mother asked him why he was walking so funny, and he said he was breaking in the shoes. My sister Audrey said under her breath, “I think the shoes are breaking in him!” He hobbled into church, hobbled out, and could barely make it back into the house when we got home where he fell into the nearest chair and pulled off the new shiny black shoes. He let out a sigh of relief and then pulled off his socks. “What happened to your toes?” I

asked him. They were as red as a beet and he had to use his fingers to unbend them. Everett was ready to claim the shoes when Emerson said he could buy them if he wanted, but he certainly wasn’t getting them for nothing! “They are my shoes, and they stay my shoes until you pay for them,” Emerson said, rubbing his toes trying to get the cramps out of them. Well, that’s when Mother entered the fray. She got up from the kitchen table, walked over to where Emerson and the new shiny black shoes were, grabbed them off the floor, and handed them to Everett. She never said a word. She didn’t have to. Everett slipped off his laced boots, and even with heavy grey work socks, he was able to slip his feet in easily. They fit him like they had been made for him. Emerson hardly spoke to Everett for three days. See MARY page 9

Historic residence new home to Bed & Breakfast By DOREEN BARNES

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Upon choosing Brockville to live and operate a bed and breakfast, the Sir Isaac Brock B&B owners David and Ida Duc (born and raised in the Niagara region) fell in love with the Sylvester Skinner property, built in 1824. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We moved here in July,â&#x20AC;? said David. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brockvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown attracted us. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convenient as we can walk downtown. Our cars are parked on the side of the house and we do not use them for a week at a time.â&#x20AC;? According to Ida, the name was chosen because of the name of the city, they both knew the history of Sir Isaac Brock and they attended Brock University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It (the name) was suitable (to the property) and the period of the house,â&#x20AC;? added Ida. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that time it was considered a mansion. The thing that attracted us to the house was the stone. It is so beautiful. As soon as you walk in, the house is very inviting.â&#x20AC;? During their research regarding Syl-

vester Skinner, they found that he manufactured farm tools and later hardware for carriages. Skinner originated from Connecticut, came to Brockville and eventually moved to Gananoque. This grand Georgian structure, at 89 Church St., has been designated as a heritage home. For the Ducs, buying this property is an adventure and Ida admits she always wanted to own a bed and breakfast. In the past they have always lived in newer built homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a passion for me (to have a bed and breakfast),â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been thinking about it for a long time and did some research and I have a background in catering and hospitality. So, I said, you know what, this is what I want.â&#x20AC;? Ida felt that a bed and breakfast gives a person that home away from home experience. See BROCK page 12

The dining room lends itself to a comfortable intimate space for guests to have breakfast. Guests will enjoy central air, the furnace’s air purifier with ceiling fans in each room and access to Wi-Fi. A large private outside deck is available throughout the warmer season to sit and listen to the birds. Next year Ida plans to have English gardens near the deck. The Ducs have their living quarters off to the side of the bed and breakfast while visitors have the whole residence to relax in and ample parking. Sir Isaac would be proud to lay his head down on a pillow in a bedroom of this new establishment.

Columnist offers advice on 4-wheeling and keeping distractions off the road Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Mr. Turner, I always enjoy reading your column and advice. I wonder if you would kindly provide some guidance regarding the use of four wheel drive vehicles. I am an owner of a new 2013 GMC Sierra pick-up equipped with electronic 4 wheel drive control. I am told, and I read, that the 4 wheel drive should not be used unless driving on gravel roads or uneven terrain. Others say there is no ill effect driving 4 wheels anytime no matter the road conditions. With winter approaching, any advice you can provide would be appreciated for driving in snow or wet road conditions then for dry summer road conditions. Would you also explain the effect, if any, using 4 wheel drive could have on the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transfer case in certain road conditions and is there a need to exercise the 4 wheel drive train from time to time. Thank you so much, I look forward to your kind reply and advice.â&#x20AC;? Best regards, Vince As far as the differing opinions youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting regarding four-wheel drive usage it boils down to: a little from column A and a little from column B. Most light duty trucks no longer have a solid front axle but a differential with flexible CV (constant velocity joint) style front axle shafts similar to those used on front-wheel drive autos. These reduce much of the driveline harshness that plagued traditional solid axle units. If you engage your truck in 4WD and then try to take a tight corner, you will feel some jerky resistance in the steering as the speed of the inside road wheel over-takes the speed of the driveshaft. This is what can damage 4WD components if done regularly over a period of time. But your truck should easily make wider turns in 4WD without a problem, no matter what type of surface itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rolling on. Therefore itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bad idea to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;exerciseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the system once a month or so, on a portion of your regular commute without sharp turns. Keep in mind this does have a negative effect on fuel economy. A 10 or 15-minute drive should suffice. If your 4WD system has a

low range, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d suggest trying that out monthly but only for a few yards at low speeds. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve included the relevant section (below) from your vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Driving on clean, dry pavement in FourWheel Drive High or Four-Wheel Drive Low for an extended period of time may cause premature wear on the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power-train. Do not drive on clean, dry pavement in Four-Wheel Drive High or Four-Wheel Drive Low for extended periods of time.â&#x20AC;? Distracted driving Ford of Canada recently commissioned a survey on distracted driving habits and the results arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t promising. The poll was completed by Leger from Aug. 9-16 involving a total of 528 young drivers (16-19 years of age) and 528 parents who have a teen driver in their family. According to the results: â&#x20AC;˘ 93 per cent of teens and 97 per cent of parents admit to distracted driving even though they know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dangerous, â&#x20AC;˘ 72 per cent of teens and 67 per cent of parents use hand-held technology, such as texting and talking on the phone, while behind the wheel. â&#x20AC;˘ In Ontario, 73 per cent of teens and 62 per

cent of parents admitted to using hand-held technology while behind the wheel. The only promising note was that one in five teens and parent (20 per cent) report they are using voice-activated, hands-free technologies most or all of the time over a hand-held device. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want people to be aware of the dangers of distracted driving and help them develop safer driving habits,â&#x20AC;? said Dianne Craig, president and CEO, Ford of Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ford is deeply committed to driver safety. Technologies such as MyKeyÂŽ and Ford SYNCÂŽ have important roles to play in limiting distractions and helping to change behaviours.â&#x20AC;? The available Ford MyKeyÂŽ system features a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do Not Disturbâ&#x20AC;? function which blocks incoming calls and deters text messages. Calls are diverted to voicemail and text messages are saved on the device for later viewing. MyKeyÂŽ also has the ability to set a maximum speed level, limit the volume on the sound system, and disable the sound system altogether until seatbelts are buckled. More auto makers should be offering this safeguard.

On the third day of the program, students will participate in a simulated session of the assembly in the Chamber. “I’m a strong supporter of the Model Parliament program and can’t wait to meet our representative from LeedsGrenville,” said Clark. “There’s no better way to encourage young people to take an interest in the democratic process than by offering them an experience like this one.” Those interested in the Legislative Assembly’s Model Parliament can learn more about the program and find the online application form by visiting: http://educationportal.ontla.on.ca/en/ model-parliament. The deadline to apply is Nov. 30.

News – Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark is encouraging high-school aged students from the riding with an interest in provincial affairs and current events to apply to be part of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario’s new Model Parliament Program. One student from each of Ontario’s 107 ridings will be chosen to participate in the three-day Model Parliament, which takes place at Queen’s Park in Toronto from Feb. 19-21, 2014. Students will have the opportunity to meet key people in the Legislative Assembly, tour the legislature building and learn about its history, and study the legislative process through workshops and presentations.

Heritage Society unveils new interpretive sign at Charleston Lake News – Athens and Area Heritage Society presented a second interpretive sign on Nov. 9 in Charleston Village. A dedication ceremony took place at the sign near the dock. Kathryn Hudson, chair of AAHS, welcomed the crowd attending and introduced various dignitaries including Herb Scott, Athens Township Reeve, who thanked the Heritage Society for all of their efforts and Brian Phillips for his expertise. Bill Hallam represented the Charleston Lake Association who contributed to the cost of the sign. Phillips spoke about Charleston as a lake that is unmatched in beauty and appeal. The sign includes a brief history of the lake and village in photos and text. Next summer he hopes to do a presentation that will include the anecdotes of murder, drownings, and eccentricities that space precluded from the sign. He is very thankful for the wonderful legacy of Jennie Lamb photos, which are the best chronicle of life on the lake between 1905-1930 that exist. It is hoped that this presentation may be part of a larger Charleston celebration event. Doug Quantz brought greetings from the Athens District Chamber of Commerce, noting the importance of the chamber and heritage society working together to improve the community. Sally Smid of AAHS noted that the grant from the Thousand Islands Community Development Corporation along with private donations is helping to make the signage project a reality. “Brian is a world class interpretive

installed in a garden at the Athens Medical Centre next spring. An interpretive sign describing the Jeffrey Boat Works of Athens has also been researched, designed, and is now in production for installation a few weeks from now. Two other signs are in the design phase, one for the Educational History of Athens, and another for the Model School. The intention of this project is to preserve the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important history while sharing it in an informative and effective manner with citizens and visitors. Donations are still needed in continuing this signage project which includes a comprehensive collection of archival information relating to local history and the support of the community is very much appreciated. The program has unearthed rare artifacts of significance and gathered hundreds of photographs which have all been scanned at very high â&#x20AC;&#x153;archivalâ&#x20AC;? resolution. The body of local heritage knowledge has increased by this program both in quantity and quality and will be valued and studied for generations to come.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; foodcoreLGL is creating a Food Charter for the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville and Lanark County. A Food Charter is a guiding document, shaped by community members, that outlines a vision for the future of the food system in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark. The food system includes everything from growing food, to processing, storing, transporting, selling, buying, and eating food. From growers to eaters - we all fit into the food system. foodcoreLGL is a team of individuals, community organizations, farmers, growers, producers, institutions, businesses and local government representatives. This group is co-chaired by Merrickville-Wolford Mayor Doug Struthers and Reeve of Township of Montague Bill Dobson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This provides a unique partnership between the counties and different sectors who care about food,â&#x20AC;? says Struthers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an opportunity to potentially influence change in the food system at a community level,â&#x20AC;? adds Dobson. A food charter can help strengthen the local economy, support local producers, promote environmental conservation and improve the health and well-being of residents. foodcoreLGL is seeking input from community members. foodcoreLGL is currently gathering feedback on the initial draft of the charter. There is an online survey that can be found at www.foodcoreLGL.ca, or contact foodcoreLGL for a hard copy. If you are part of a business or interest group, you can contact foodcoreLGL to find out how you can lead a consultation with your group to get their feedback on the draft charter.

Kinsmen’s ‘Spirit of Giving Campaign’ in full swing Community – The Kinsmen Club of Prescott has kicked off its annual Spirit of Giving campaign for 2013. The Spirit of Giving project was initiated by Bernie Currier’s accounting class at South Grenville District High School in the late 1980s to provide food items to those less fortunate at Christmas. In the early ’90s the project scope and resource demand outgrew what could be handled by the SGDHS students alone so they handed the project over to the Kinsmen & Kinette Clubs of Prescott. Under the leadership of these two groups working in conjunction with the SGDHS students the project evolved and expanded. In the mid ‘90s unfortunately the Kinette club folded and the Kinsmen took sole ownership of the project. At this time the area covered was

also expanded. In the mid ’90s the baskets were also expanded to include many perishable items such as apples, oranges, carrots, potatoes, eggs, bread, stuffing and turkeys. In early 2000 the decision was made to include a gift for each child and the elderly via Angel trees. The number of families registered varies from year to year. At its peak, the program has provided assistance to almost 300 families, but in recent years the drive has been feeding approximately 250 families each year for a week at Christmas. How to help All the above being said the club is looking for assistance from the public and business community in the area to support and sustain this worthwhile non-profit project. Please review the list below and if you can help in anyway please get

involved. The SGDHS students will be performing food drives throughout the area from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. each night on the following schedule. • Prescott East, Nov. 6 and Nov. 7, • Maynard Monday, Nov 11, • Spencerville Tuesday, Nov 12, • Prescott West, Wednesday, Nov. 13, Thursday, Nov. 14, • Maitland, Monday, Nov 18, • RiverView Heights, Tuesday, Nov. 19, • Johnstown, Wednesday, Nov. 20 & Thursday, Nov 21 • Prescott Light up the Night Parade, Friday, Nov. 22 (town and students), • Cardinal, Wednesday, Nov. 27 and Thursday, Nov. 28. Registrations For those looking to register for assistance you need to attend one of

the following registrations with ID and proof of address: • Prescott at the Kinsmen clubhouse (aka the tennis club building or the building with the green roof) on Corrine Street (South West of the Doctors offices) from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 27; Thursday, Nov. 28; Friday, Nov. 29; Monday, Dec. 2 & Dec 3 • Spencerville Food for All Foodbank at United Church, 11 to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 26, • Cardinal at the Food for All Foodbank, noon to 4 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 27. All items will be collected on or before Friday December 20. On the evening of Friday December 21 the items will be sorted and baskets prepared. Saturday December 21 is the date the baskets will be distributed to those who have registered.

Events – You are invited to hear Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labour for Presidents Clinton and Carter, and author of 13 books, in an interview with Bill Moyers, as he gives insights into both the economic inequality of today and the solution. The film is called Inequality For All verses Shared Prosperity. It will be shown in the new Community Board Room, just west of Laura Secord’s in the 1000 Islands Mall, Sunday, Nov. 17, at 2 p.m. It is sponsored by the Council of Canadians Brockville chapter. There is no charge. Discussion and refreshments are included. The promise of NAFTA was economic prosperity. Well, Canada’s economy did go up, but individual economies did not. What is the problem causing our real unemployment estimated at about 10 per cent, our stagnant wages, our expanding household and student debts, our job insecurity, our lack of individual progress, and the expanding inequality in Canada? Robert Reich has the answer to these questions. Come and hear what he has to say and be part of the solution.

Sue Hale-Ladouceur poses with one of her whimsical dolls which served as the ‘poster girl’ for this weekend’s tiArts Fall show in Rockport.

Artist’s work serves as ‘poster girl’ for show Arts – Sue HaleLadouceur is one of the 25 artists offering their work for sale at the 22nd annual tiArts Fall show in and around Rockport from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Nov. 16 and 17. One of Sue’s whimsical dolls (pictured above) is the ‘poster girl’ for this show. Sue makes her “creations from bold and colourful fabrics, focusing on each character, giving them personality through details in their expressions and embellishments on their clothing.” Sue’s mother inspired and guided her when she started making dolls at a very young age. She feels she is “very fortunate

to have inherited” her mother’s talent and her father’s sense of humour. She continues this legacy with her children and grandchildren. She feels her labour of love is all worthwhile when someone tells her they have kept one of her Santas they bought years ago on their mantle all year long because “the whimsy on its face makes them smile.” It’s then that she feels she has really “done her job”. Her purpose is “all about making someone smile.” For more information about the other artists, this show and a detailed local map, please visit www. tiArts.ca and click on ‘Shows’.

They cater to a range of modalities including crystals, essential oils, CDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meditation, self-help books, and so much more. Above, Township of Leeds and The Thousand Islands Mayor Frank Kinsella (right) cuts the official purple ribbon with assistance from owner Linda Scallion.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Members of 870 Vampire Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets have started out the new training year with a variety of aviation, aerospace and survival training activities. On Oct. 12, Cadets took an introductory aerospace course, then assembled and launched model rockets more than 150 metres into the sky! The clear sky and light wind that day made for excellent launch conditions. All rockets were retrieved successfully and only one spent a brief time in a tree. Cadets took to the sky in gliders on Oct. 14. This twice annual event gives all Cadets an opportunity to ride as a passenger in the two-seat Schweizer glider. Warrant Officers Andrew Van Der Kloet and Cameron Wales, two of 870 Squadronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pilots, also took â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;soloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flights to build up time as pilots. The fall two-day Survival course, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Field Training Exerciseâ&#x20AC;? as it is more commonly known, was held along with 585 Squadron from Smiths Falls on the weekend of Oct. 18. Cadets learned many skills, including survival site construction, fire building, map and compass, as well as search and rescue techniques. Sergeants Coates, Hamelin and Kirkby all took leading roles in the event, utilizing the skills they learned on the six-week Survival Instructors

Sugar: pet of the week Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sweet Sugar was a family pet who was brought into the shelter in early September due to a relationship break-up. She had recently had kittens which they found homes for but no longer wanted mummy. She is a petite girl â&#x20AC;&#x201C; very kittenish herself - who has been in a home with large dogs and also doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind children. As soon as I stepped into the shelter the other day this little slip of white jumped right onto my shoulder, no fear at all. Sugar has been spayed and her shots

are up to date and we think sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d easily fit right into a forever family where she can be her sweet, playful self. To meet Sugar please visit the Gananoque & District Humane Society at 85 Hwy. 32 just north of Gananoque and the 401. Our hours are 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Saturday. Phone 613-382-1512 or email humanesociety@ bellnet.ca. On Saturday Nov. 16 weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re holding Cookies Crafts & Critters for Kids, a new take on our annual event. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at

the Gananoque Legion, 55 King St. W. Gananoque, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and features all the activities kids and the young-at-heart love: kittens, cookie decorating, face-painting, games and prizes, silent auction, a special funny photo booth, bake sale, and Recycled Reptiles who will be there with exotic reptiles such as geckos and crested dragons who now need homes after being left behind. General admission is free but please come prepared to buy tickets for activities at this important fundraiser. For more information please call event organizer Melissa at 613-382-7277. Hope to see you there!

Survey finds food costs on rise across tri-county region News – The Health Unit has recently completed Nutritious Food Basket costing for 2013. The annual food costing, done by all Public Units in Ontario, calculates the price of 67 food items from a number of grocery stores in the area. This year, across Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark counties, the cost of feeding a family of four (2 adults + 2 children) is $178 per week (or $772 per month). This is a nine per cent increase in the cost of food alone in the past three years (since 2010). “The challenge with the rising cost of food is that as other costs of living, such as household bills and the price of gas, increase there is less and less money available for buying food,” says Dianne Oickle, a Registered Dietitian at the Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark District Health Unit. “So not only does it become more difficult to choose healthy foods, it sometimes bePhoto courtesy of DOUGLAS QUANTZ comes a choice between eating enough and paying for other family needs like rent and transportation.” News – Despite the cool and damp conditions, a large crowd came out to attend Monday’s Remembrance While families who live on a low-inDay ceremony in Athens, laying wreaths in memory of those who gave their lives in the service of their come are at risk of not being able to afford healthy food, it is not limited to those who country. are unemployed or receiving social assistance.

reported that they were not able to afford the food they needed in the previous year. Oickle notes, “Individuals who are working hard at lower paying jobs may be trying to support themselves or their families with an income that is just not enough to cover everything that is needed. And as families struggle with losing work and less income, their ability to afford healthy food decreases. The Nutritious Food Basket survey records the lowest cost at each grocery store for 67 foods, and estimates the average cost by age and life stage group. Results can be used to raise awareness of the cost of healthy eating in our community.

point, it finds her. With the Aether’s discovery the Dark Elves and Malekith are awakened. Malekith will stop at nothing to possess the weapon. To save the Nine Realms and Jane, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) will have to disobey his father and commit treason. Then he’ll have to ask Loki (Tom Hiddleston), the one person he can’t trust, for help. I loved everything about Thor: The Dark World. The scope of the story, the heroes, the villains, the action, the visuals, the cast, everything about it is fantastic. Above everything else though I found it to be an amazing blend of fantasy and science fiction. This is an incredible world of magic and technology, and it’s brought to life so vividly and dramatically you lose yourself in it. It creates amazing story possibilities and breathtaking visuals.

It seems there are some roles actors are just born to play. I think the fates may have aligned so Chris Hemsworth could play Thor. He doesn’t just look the part he lives it and breathes it. Jane Foster is nobody’s damsel in distress. Natalie Portman brings a vibrancy and energy to this role that’s dazzling. Her fire and determination easily equal her godly counterpart’s. I love Thor but there’s always been a soft spot in my heart for Loki. He’s a complicated and often misunderstood character. Tom Hiddleston is so good I wouldn’t be surprised if he really was the Norse god of mischief. Where Hemsworth seems born to play the hero Christopher Eccleston seems born to play the villain. His rage and hate are palatable. He is exactly the kind of villain you want to see battling the god of thunder. When your hero is a god you don’t want to see him stopping bank robbers. You want him battling the forces of evil with the fate of the universe at stake. That’s what Thor The Dark World is, and it’s awesome.

MOVIE: Thor: The Dark World STARRING: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins and Christopher Eccleston DIRECTOR: Alan Taylor RATING: PG Arts – I enjoy movies that blur the lines between good and evil. Movies where it’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Those movies have their appeal, but then there’s movies like Thor: The Dark World. There’s a lot to be said for a movie where the lines between good and evil are clearly defined. During the last alignment of the Nine Realms, the Dark Elves, led by Malekith (Christopher Eccleston), attempted to use an all-powerful weapon called the Aether to destroy the universe. Odin’s (Anthony Hopkins) father Bors defeated Malekith. However, Bors could not destroy the Aether and so he hid it. Today the alignment draws near again, and the barriers between the realms grows thin. Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) is pulled through to another realm where the barrier is weak, and finds herself in a strange cavern. There she finds the Aether, or more to the

Odbody is more than 200 years old and if successful in this task, he will finally earn his angel wings. To help Bailey realize how meaningful his life is, Odbody shows Bailey how the community of Bedford Falls would have been without him. This show has all the elements of a must-see with drama, comedy coupled with the passion of the cast. The Brockville Theatre Guild has put countless hours of hard work, not to mention their hearts into bringing this entertaining performance to the public. Will Odbody earn his angel wings?

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Come and appreciate the Brockville Theatre Guildâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talent as they bring their adaptation of a Christmas season classic, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Wonderful Live, to the Brockville Arts Centre stage. Performances will take place on Thursday, Nov. 21 to Saturday, Nov. 23 with 8 p.m. performances along with a Saturday 2 p.m. matinee. This timeless film, radio and theatre production was based on a short story, The Greatest Gift, by Philip Van Doren Stern. The creative stage scenery will take the audience to the small town of Bedford Falls for Christmas Eve as family man George Bailey (Paul Duchesne) contemplates his life and wishes he had never been born. The reason Duchesne wanted to play this role was due to the many emotions that Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character displays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to stretch myself with these emotions that Jimmy Stewart showed while playing George Bailey,â&#x20AC;? indicated Duchesne, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but in my own way.â&#x20AC;? All those dreams George had have never come true and he feels heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a failure in life. Committing suicide is Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only option. As Heaven learns of this sad intention, Angel Second Class Clarence Odbody (Will Wright) is sent to earth to intervene, on the instructions of the Superintendent of Angels (Dave Cody). According to Wright, he and Cody have several off-stage narrative parts in

Some of the cast members of Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Wonderful Life, left to right, are the Superintendent of Angels (Dave Cody), Angel Second Class Clarence Odbody (Will Wright), Janie Bailey (nine-year-old Meghan Murray, her first play), George Bailey (Paul Duchesne), Zuzu Bailey (10-year-old Jessica Gonidis), Mary Hatch Bailey (Rose-Anne Theriault) and Pete Bailey (11-year-old Nick Finer).

1 All starts figures in this release, other than actual starts and the trend estimate, are seasonally adjusted annual rates (SAAR) - that is, monthly figures adjusted to remove normal seasonal variation and multiplied by 12 to reflect annual levels. By removing seasonal ups and downs, seasonal adjustment allows for a comparison from one season to the next and from one month to the next. Reporting monthly figures at annual rates indicates the annual level of starts that would be obtained if the monthly pace was maintained for 12 months. This facilitates comparison of the current pace of activity to annual forecasts as well as to historical annual levels

Business – Housing starts in the Ontario region were trending at 63,785 units in October, compared to 60,207 in September, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). The trend is a six-month moving average of the monthly seasonally adjusted annual rates (SAAR)1 of housing starts. “Higher construction activity in recent months is proliferating beyond the GTA and beyond apartment construction with the trend in row and semi-detached construction edging higher in a number of other metropolitan markets. The trend in Ontario starts is now pointing up suggesting that more strength can be expected in the months to follow. Higher demand for resale homes, a backlog of apartment units awaiting construction combined with a gradual improvement in the job market point to strong starts activity for the remainder of 2013,” said Ted Tsiakopoulos, CMHC’s Ontario Regional Economist. 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, analysing 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 variable from one month to the next. The standalone monthly SAAR was 68,227 units in October, up from 57,811 units in September and near its

If you don’t have one, now is a good time to prepare one. “As we head into the heating, candle and fireplace season – a season that tends to see an increase in home fires – having a fire safety plan in place is the best way to reduce risks and prevent injury,” says Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “Daylight savings goes hand in hand with fire safety – now that you’ve turned back your clock, be sure to

Eye-catching, inspiring art at 22nd annual Thousand Islands Arts Fall Show this weekend, Nov. 16 and 17 in Rockport By GERALDINE LAST

Arts – Another of the many reasons to visit the waterfront village of Rockport is the upcoming Thousands Islands Arts show Nov. 16 and 17. Twenty-five talented members and selected guest artists will present their latest works for sale at four conveniently grouped locations in and around Rockport. There is no admission, all locations are very accessible and there is plenty of parking. This will be a great opportunity for Christmas shopping. A new guest artist this year is Tasha Thorpe from Merrickville – a ‘Steampunked’ devotee. I asked Tasha to tell me about ‘Steampunked’ art, because I had no idea what it meant. Her passionate answers were inspiring. It is a combination of all that she loves –art, old things, fantasy, science fiction, mechanical things, as well as Submitted photo taking apart and fixing things. When she creates she feels she might be in These Steampunked table time pendants are eye-catching pieces of art a Sherlock Holmes-style English set- that are created by Tasha Thorpe, using authenticated 18th and 19th ting, reliving the romanticism of the century parts or pieces.

touch. Her signature, which differentiates her from other Steampunk artists, is that every piece of art she creates has authenticated 18th and 19th century parts or pieces. This way it has an actual tie to the era in which Steampunk is set. Her eyes light up when she talks about her inspiration for her work. She created a fictitious character – Professor Pugnacious Puganinny – (she has a pug whom she adores). The ‘Professor’ travels throughout a Steampunk world to find and collect artifacts. When Tasha sells a piece of her work she gives the collectors a backstory from the ‘Professor’ to take with them so they will be able to tell about the incredible artifact they now own. When Tasha works she becomes completely lost in her creations. She says, “It is like diving under water, where sounds become muted and I can only see what’s in front of me.”

1800’s. The Victorian era, science fiction and fantasy all come into play with ‘Steampunked’ art. Steampunk reimagines modern technology. It may restore a sense of wonder to a technology-jaded world. If Jules Verne or H.G. Wells were writing today, their science fiction would be considered ‘Steampunk’. Tasha has been an artist all her life. She started with crayons at one year old and tells me “none were ever eaten”. She went on to drawing, painting, and sculpturing. She’s been commissioned to do portraiture, commercial print ads, tattoo designs, and sculpture, but she realized two years ago that Steampunk was where she belonged. Her Steampunk art evolved after she opened her first antique watch and was enthralled with the beautiful craftsmanship, the incredible detail, and the delicate artwork. She wanted to share this with other people. Many of her art pieces are antique watches, to which she has added her own

Fun gifts What can you possibly give to someone who already has everything? How can you please such a person with something as trite as jewellery, tools, or yet another necktie? The solution is to find a fun gift that’s worth a giggle or that serves as a conversation starter. Not only will it make the recipient laugh, there’s a pretty good chance that he or she doesn’t already have one! Here are a few ideas: • For beer lovers, a cell phone case with a built-in beer opener • For couch potatoes who hate the cold, an electric pyjama warmer • For the mom who takes care of everything, an apron printed with Wonder Woman’s body • For the person who loves to start the day with a laugh, a noseshaped soap dispenser for the shower • For the clumsy foodie, adhesive bandages shaped like bacon strips • For moms, sisters, and girlfriends who love camping or travelling, a pee-tube for women • For well-behaved but fun-loving teenagers, fake body jewellery • For the food-loving handyman, a pizza cutter shaped like a circular saw • For a playful girlfriend, an illuminated bra • For a cheese lover, a cheese plate and knife in the form of a mousetrap • For a social media fan, a Facebook-page shower curtain • For a cat with character, a lion suit • For the incorrigible smoker, a lighter in the shape of a gun

For the environmentalist on your gift list Environmental protection is an absolutely central value for many people today. The aim of “green” people is to reduce their dependency on consumer goods as much as possible; in other words, their goal is to consume intelligently. To ensure that the environmentalists on your Christmas list will truly appreciate their gifts, be sure to choose things that correspond to their ideals. Nature lovers will love to receive a small, live Christmas tree in a pot, one that can be put outside in the spring or that can be kept indoors as a houseplant. A florist will be able to give you all the necessary information. Presenting them with a membership card for an environmental organization, such as Greenpeace or the World Wildlife Fund, is also a great idea. Some of these organizations have boutiques selling fair trade or organic products, such as reusable coffee cups, carrier bags made of organic cotton, organic seeds, note pads of recycled paper, organic sunscreen, eco-friendly laundry detergent, and other environmentally responsible goods. You could also purchase fair trade and organic food items at a supermarket or natural food store — coffee, tea, jam, jelly, chocolate — then make your own pretty gift basket. Any articles that can replace disposable accessories are also good gift ideas. Think lunch or shopping bags made from washable fabric, a tray for reusable coffee mugs, washable diapers for babies, or organic cotton wipes. If you have a bigger budget in mind, think about giving a bicycle. That way, your environmentalist can cycle to work. You could also buy a monthly public transportation pass for a student, which would help him or her save some precious dollars.

Buy an organic, fair trade, or sustainable gift for your favourite environmentalist.

engines Auto lovers tend to consider their cars their most prized possessions. While it may not be possible to buy the auto lover on your holiday shopping list a new car, there are many gifts that are sure to please those people who can’t get enough time behind the wheel or in the garage. * Global positioning system: Often referred to as a GPS, a global positioning system is a satellite-based navigation system providing location information no matter where drivers find themselves on their next road trips. If a GPS is within range of a GPS satellite, drivers will never again find themselves pulling over on the sides of roadways in an effort to find out just where they are. Though many new vehicles come with GPS, vehicle manufacturers tend to offer them as accessories and not standard features. So if your favorite driver is driving an older vehicle or did not splurge on a GPS when purchasing his latest ride, this gift is sure to please. * Car wash kit: Auto lovers not only love to get behind the wheel, but they also love to get behind the wheel of a good-looking automobile. A car wash kit, complete with a wash and wax that repels water and protects a good polish, is an ideal gift for auto enthusiasts who like their vehicles to look as good as they drive. * Customized floor mats: Many auto enthusiasts consider their cars an extension of themselves, and a customized accessory, like a new set of floor mats, can add a personal touch to drivers’ rides. If your loved one has a special nickname for his or her vehicle, consider inscribing that nickname on a set of customized floor mats. Auto enthusiasts who have an equal passion for a certain sport may appreciate floor mats with the logo of their favorite team. * Hands-free headset: Car lovers spend lots of time in their cars. Though such time might once have afforded auto enthusiasts an escape from the daily grind, nowadays the prevalence of smartphones has made it easier than ever for the outside world to find its way into vehicles. As a result, auto enthusiasts may appreciate a hands-free headset that allows them to take calls while driving without compromising their concentration on the road. Some hands-free devices even allow drivers to stream music from their smartphones directly to their car stereos, allowing drivers to hit the open road while enjoying their favorite tunes. * Auto show tickets: Many auto-lovers keep an open eye for their next vehicle purchase. Auto shows are often the best places to learn about new vehicles and what motorists can expect in the future, so why not give your favorite car guy or gal tickets to an upcoming auto show? He or she may find his or her next vehicle or simply enjoy walking around and seeing all the latest automotive industry upgrades and gadgets.


The perfect winter tire for your car A winter tire is a winter tire, right? Absolutely not! There are dozens of models on the market, so if you are looking for new winter tires, consult a tire specialist about the most suitable type and tread for your vehicle and your driving style. Factors to consider when buying winter tires include the make and model of your vehicle, the kind of mileage you put on your car in the winter, the surface types of the roads you use most frequently, and whether you are doing rural, highway, or city driving. Be sure to choose tires whose dimensions correspond exactly to your vehicle. A tire vendor might suggest a slightly different but still appropriate size. If you own a vehicle that

came with high performance all-season tires, it is a good idea to invest in the same level of performance quality for your winter tires. What about studded snow tires? In many jurisdictions they are forbidden entirely or limited to certain roads and regions during a specific period of time. A tire specialist ought to be able to tell you where and when these tires are allowed in your area and if they really meet your needs. Ideally, all four of your vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tires should be of identical make and tread so that they wear equally. At the very least, the tires in the best condition should be installed at the rear to ensure the stability of the vehicle, even if it is a front-wheel drive.

A GPS system might make the ideal gift for auto enthusiasts this holiday season. There are dozens of different models of winter tires on the market.

Few things can be more frustrating than jumping into the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat on a frosty morning, turning the key in the ignition and failing to hear the engine roar to life. Frigid weather can cause trouble with a carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battery. Some drivers do not understand why, but getting the facts can help people avoid having to deal with dead batteries on cold winter days. Cold temperatures wreak havoc on batteries because they slow the chemical reaction inside of the battery. Batteries work by combining lead plates with lead dioxide and sulfuric acid to create electrons. While batteries can function under myriad conditions, the cold weather tends to degrade high-quality batteries and may render subpar batteries useless. The cold weather can cause the fluid in the battery to freeze and lose function.

A battery that is frozen will not hold a charge, and, as a result, the car wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start. There are various ways to protect a battery from failure in the cold, and some of them involve taking precautionary measures even before the arrival of cold weather. * Assess the age of your battery. If your battery is old, now may be the time to replace it. Batteries differ in how long they last, but many last anywhere from five to 10 years. If your car is still running on its original battery and your card is several years old, it may be a good idea to get a new battery before the arrival of winter. Battery size will not necessarily provide better starting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to buy the correct battery for the make of your car, which can usually be found inside of the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual.

Events – Last weekend, a group of American soldiers massed near Iroquois to help re-enact the capture of Iroquois Point by Yankee forces during the War of 1812. A large crowd gathered at Iroquois Point to watch a couple dozen re-enactors, representing the U.S. troops and Canadian militia, commemorate the battle, which took place Nov. 7, 1813.

Events – Two American soldiers take shots at Canadian militia who mustered to repel a U.S. invasion at Iroquois Point during a War of 1812 re-enactment in Iroquois last weekend. The American force was successful in capturing the point on Nov. 7, 1813, but would be repelled once and for all a few weeks later at the decisive Battle of Crysler’s Farm.

Welcome to our George Street Dental Clinic By Doreen Barnes

Jansen Richard, Debbie Cowan, Jeannie Dillabough, Tabbitha Derue, Linda Breedyk Dr. D. Sidhu, Dr, H. Jagen

George Street Dental – A new team of dental professionals at George Street Dental clinic would like to make dental visits for their patients a positive experience using the latest techniques and services in dentistry that are available. Located at 67 George Street, Brockville, Dr. Haren Jagan has taken over Drs. Dwayne Dudgeon and Layne Boivin’s practices upon their retirement and with his staff is looking forward to assisting people with dental needs. For now, Dr. Jagan is practicing dentistry Wednesdays and Thursdays in Brockville, just until he closes his clinic in Toronto. Recently married to his lovely wife, Hamsa, in June, relocating to Brockville makes sense for this couple, as they would live closer to Montreal, where family resides.

Dr. Sidhu, Linda Breedyk

“Basically, I grew up in a large city,” said Jagan, “and I was looking for a small town, a simpler lifestyle and the opportunity came up. I had driven by Brockville going back and forth between Montreal and Toronto many times. It’s a quaint community, people are friendly and you don’t get that in the hustle and bustle of cities. I like people who are genuine.”

The George Street Dental clinic’s staff consists of another dentist Dr. D. Sidhu along with a male and female dental hygienists, dental assistants and office staff, with the intention of hiring more as the practice grows. “My approach to dentistry is a little bit different than what most dentists do,” indicated Jagan. “I believe in giving a broader range of services and giving those the ability to choose.”

Debbie Cowan and Tabbitha Derue

At George Street Dental clinic, the client and the team discuss the best avenue to take as far as the patient’s dental health is concerned. In addition, Jagan believes in giving back to his patients for their loyalty with monthly draws. Anyone who comes to the clinic for a hygiene appointment, their name will be put into the raffle for an opportunity to win. In October, about 160 names were entered with Emma Bond being the recipient of a 32 inch high definition television, which she is currently enjoying. Bond had a dental cleaning and check-up prior to seeing Dr Sidhu for two fillings. She said the staff was wonderful and that she couldn’t believe she had won a television.

Jansen Richard

“It was a lovely surprise,” added Bond. “The television is a nice size and if I miss anything (on the screen), I can read the caption.” For November’s gift, it may be a designer handbag for the ladies. In time, Jagan, who is bilingual, in French and English, wants to bring general preventative and maintenance packages, esthetic dentistry, community lectures with varied topics like implants, sleep dentistry, as well to have medical guest speakers.

He feels that people should not have to commute to Ottawa or Kingston for specialty services, when he could bring in a professional to this area, one day a week. “This is George Street Dental, it’s not Dr. Jagan’s office,” affirmed Jagan. “It’s a comfortable, pleasant environment. Come in, as we offer a variety of services.”

Sweetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corners Elementary School participates in Marathon Club Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Last week, 55 students and staff were awarded medals for completing the equivalent of a marathon, in an eightweek span. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The obvious goal of our Marathon Club is to improve fitness levels across our student body, but Marathon Club has really been about so much more,â&#x20AC;? says principal

Trisha Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have noticed an increase in confidence among our students, which has led to increased self-esteem and a new energy in our building that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apparent before. Students are learning about goal-setting in a very authentic way. They have seen first-hand that students can achieve the same goal but at different

paces and that this is okay. Our Marathon Club aligns with our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I Belongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; initiative by allowing students to feel a sense of belonging at school. New friendships have blossomed, as well as a new common ground. We are all working side-by-side toward the same goal, and this camaraderie is a great feeling.â&#x20AC;?

Teacher and Marathon Club co-ordinator Lacy Melrose concurs with her principal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have seen Marathon Club work at another school where staff and students got really involved so I decided to bring it to Sweetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corners. We tied it into our crosscountry program and our Terry Fox initiative. It is a great way to keep children fit at recess, and helps them keep active. Our whole student body was involved as all students were able to run/walk,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order to attain marathon status, students had to run 42.2 kilometres over an eight-week period, some students finished in 2.5 weeks and some over the eight-week period, and others are able to finish in the spring but all students accomplished personal goals. We were able to see a physical difference in endurance and overall enjoyment of running over the eight-week span. Staff and students are looking forward to the spring to do it all over again.â&#x20AC;?

Sports – Last Saturday night the Island City Blackhawks made the 30-minute journey west on the 401 to Gananoque with full intentions of leaving town with a win. But what they didn’t expect was the fight and compete the Gananoque Gryphons gave them as they just held on to a 6-5 win. Two Blackhawk veterans led the team in this game with their strong play at both ends of the rink. Travis Cauley got the call to replace Jeff ‘Youngblood’ June, who is on a holiday, and did he deliver. Cauley had a goal and four assists to lead the Hawks offence in this game. His linemate, the hard working Daryl ‘Stumpy’ Whiteland was not to be outdone either as he lit the lamp twice and added a pair of assists. “The Gryphons gave us everything we could handle here tonight. They had no fillers in their line up. They had a great goaltender and a really strong group of defence and forwards. They had a very competitive team over there tonight,” Blackhawk management said at the podium after the game. “This is by far the best line up they have ever iced against us. Their d-men were especially strong, you had to earn your ice out there and if you did their goalie Tim Tenet was there to shut the door. The pace of this game was as fast as any we have played in this season thus far, management continued at his press conference.” The game started out pretty much like the Blackhawks expected, Cauley put the

The Hawks took that two-goal lead into the third with a vision that the home team would mail it in. That did not happen, in fact the home team found another gear. They narrowed the gap to one five minutes in. The Hawks went up again by two when ‘The Champ’ Wayne Morrow converted a beautiful behind the net pass from Cauley. Those tenacious Gryphons came right back to make the score 5-4 with just under seven minutes remaining. ‘Stumpy’ Whiteland put the Brock Vegas boys up by two again with only a couple of minutes to go. Game over right? Nope, those Gryphons came right back, they pulled to within one with their tender on the bench and 47 ticks left on the clock. The Hawks controlled the ensuing face
