Kinsmen’s 25th annual Snowsuit Drive exceeds goal By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

News – The early arrival of snow this year appeared to give the Kinsmen Club of Brockville 25th annual Snowsuit Drive a boost. Ending Dec. 7, the campaign brought in 1,332 snowsuits – allowing 102 per cent of the goal to be achieved. “It’s awesome. There are still a few snowsuits coming in,” Steve Benoit laughed good naturedly at the success. Benoit is chair of this year’s drive. He says the early snows certainly helped, and so did the collections taken during both the Brockville Santa Claus parade and the Lyn Santa Claus parade. In addition, the Brockville Police Services got involved encouraging the public to “stuff” a cruiser; the Brockville Braves joined in to encourage donations, and a new distribution model was introduced. After each of the campaign events, Benoit explains, there was a definite bump in phone calls as well as traffic in

giving donations. “Our new distribution model was successful this year at the mall (1000 Islands Mall),” he explained. “Every year we are looking to improve and it worked really, really well.” The Kinsmen are responsible for the drive and the collection of funds and snowsuits. These are then turned over to Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville for distribution. Benoit explains any surplus donations would help the agency with any additional requests it might get throughout the winter, perhaps through the Salvation Army or from local schools. This year the Kinsmen were at the forefront with distribution dates beginning Nov. 23 and running for the following few Saturdays at the 1000 Islands Mall. Care packages were taken to schools as well, he says. Having exceeded the goal, those still in need of warm weather attire may

Enjoy the Ride.

This year’s campaign was a treat compared to last year. Benoit recalled the weather had been warmer right up to the end of the 2012 campaign, although the goal was ultimately achieved, then surpassed. As it turned out the generous community came through again. For further information please call

GIVING From front page

He noted the expansion a couple of years ago, of registration availability in Cardinal and Spencerville may have led to the increase in those registered. The club is still receiving phone calls and emails from those looking to register, however “unfortunately we cannot accommodate anyone who did not register on the seven dates we completed.” Another factor perhaps playing a role in the decrease of donations was the malfunction of an answering machine. In an email, Hitsman explained those calling and leaving a message at 613-925-1315 over the past number of weeks may have thought their information was being captured, when in fact it wasn’t. They are urging anyone who might have called to call back at this time. The campaign sees families in need delivered baskets providing them enough food for a week, as well as a gift for each child and the elderly. The funds are needed to purchase the perishable items placed within the food baskets, and includes items such as turkey, potatoes, carrots, oranges, stuffing, margarine, cranberries, bread, eggs and more. The annual campaign is put on by the Kinsmen Club of Prescott, working in conjunction with students at the South Grenville District High School. The campaign featured food drives held throughout the area (these began Nov. 6 and ended Nov. 28), 45 gallon drums placed throughout stores, businesses and schools for donation drop-offs, and funds collected in order to purchase perishable items for food baskets. Angel Trees are also placed throughout the area. Those wishing to make a donation can pick up an angel from the tree, purchase a gift and place the angel on the gift and under the tree. These gifts are then added to the food baskets. All 45 gallon drums and donations must be in on or before Friday, Dec. 20, as that evening all items will be sorted, baskets prepared and distributed the next day, Dec. 21 (to those registered). Again, the goal is $10,000-plus in order to purchase perishable items for the baskets. Donations can be made by mailing them to PO Box 1150, Prescott, ON, K0E 1T0, or to any Kinsmen Club of Prescott member. If it reaches that point, in order to meet this year’s goal, “We would cover the cost within the club if we had a bad loss,” Hitsman said. Not a measure they wish to take, but if necessary it would be done. However, there would be a ripple effect for the club financially and next year’s campaign would have to be scaled back as a result. According to the Kinsmen Club of Prescott, the campaign was initially started as a project by Bernie Currier’s accounting class at SGDHS in the late ’80s. The goal was to provide food items to those “less fortunate at Christmas.” From there the campaign grew and in the early 1990s “the project scope and resource demand outgrew” what students on their own could handle. At the time, they handed the campaign over to the Kinsmen and Kinette Clubs of Prescott.

New to you hockey helmets “Hockey helmets and face protectors are okay to be sold provided they meet the stringent standards set by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA),” said Graham, “and the helmet has the sticker on it which gives the year of manufacture. However when we are talking about the second hand, it is important that the sticker does not show a date older than five years or show signs of a lot of wear and tear. Also if you are going to be selling something and it has been through a big impact, then it probably should not be sold because the material that makes the helmet can actually degrade with time and in an impact.” Babies’ and children’s items at second hand stores For a child’s well being, never put savings ahead of safety! “The way that our regulations work is

Health Canada Consumer Product safety officer Rob Graham visited the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville area last week to talk with the Chambers of Commerce as well as independent retailers of second hand stores about consumer products. that the onus is put on the retailer, importer and manufacturer for compliance,” shared Graham. “So that means that any product that is sold, that’s regulated, has to meet those regulations.” This is the reason why Graham travels around Ontario to check on products sold second hand, to make sure they meet these requirements. As for baby furniture, cribs, strollers, playpens, consumers should look at the mandatory labelling. Graham recommends

Strangulation hazards Health Canada is advising that many of the reports of strangulation deaths or near-fatal incidents have been caused by different type of cords. These include window blind cords, electrical products with long thin power cords, necklaces, including teething necklaces, skipping ropes, scarves, straps, lace, string, thread and rope. “Health Canada’s message right now when choosing window covering, is to go cordless if possible,” said Graham. “If it is not possible then keep those cords out of children’s reach at all times.” Children are curious and like to explore their environment, be aware of any cord, material or string attached to an object over the child’s crib which could be pulled, causing the item to fall. Also, there are dangers associated with children pulling a cord that is attached to an appliance, as it could cause harm. Baby walkers In 2004, baby walkers were banned in

Canada due to the danger they caused. “We had almost 10,000 incidents leading up to the ban that helped us decide to ban this product,” indicated Graham. Some of the product risk was due to children being encircled in the walkers and the potential for falling downstairs, as well as the walker allowed children to move quickly. In the walker the child sat higher up off the floor which was a danger when the child reached towards an unsafe

item; the object could fall on the child. “They are simply dangerous products and that is why they were banned,” added Graham. To check whether a toy or product has been recalled go to www. healthycanadians.gc.ca and click on the Recalls and alerts in the left hand corner of the home page. As well, there are safety tips for child proofing your home, food, health, environment and cosmetics.

News – At this gift giving time of year, Health Canada Consumer Product safety officer Rob Graham was in the Brockville area to conduct inspections for high risk products. Dec. 11 he undertook inspections for items such as cribs, car seats, strollers, toys and window blinds as well as to educate those selling second hand. “We are also doing some outreach to the local Chambers of Commerce, as well as to other independent retailers of secondhand stores of consumer products,” said Graham. “We are making them aware of what the Health Canada’s Product Safety guidelines are.” The other responsibilities include ensuring that consumer products sold in Canada are compliant to the regulations. “Doing outreach to second-hand stores is very important,” offered Graham. “My job is about ensuring compliance. What we really want to do is educate those who are in the business and consumers as to what the requirements are.” Graham suggests that consumers choose age appropriate products for their children. The reason for this is if a child plays with a toy which is deemed for an older individual, the small components of the toy could create a choking hazard for the younger one. “Dolls that have a Styrofoam head with a stocking wrapped over, there is nothing to hold onto their (pushpin) eye, so a child could choke on that,” said Graham. “What we define as a small component is anything that will fit into our small component cylinder. It mimics the size of a young child’s mouth.” Another consideration should be the durability of the product. For knitters and sewers making a fabric doll or animal, especially for a young child; be cautious as to the accents (stitched-on buttons for eyes). Stay away from any small notions that can be pulled free and put in a child’s mouth. According to Health Canada, 185 incident reports related to toys for children under 12 years of age have been received since June 2011. Unsafe toys are those that put a child at risk of illness or injury. “It is the responsibility of the importers and retailers to meet Health Canada products safety regulations,” said Graham. “The products that are for sale have to be compliant to be sold. Our job is to verify they are.” To find out more about what a safe toy is, go to www.healthycanadians.gc.ca. As well, to report a health of safety concern about a toy, go to www.hc-sc. gc.ca.

R0012477585_1219

that if you are in a store and it does not have labelling, you will know right away that the product is not compliant with Canada Health regulations. “We want to encourage people to ask questions about the product,” said Graham. “You should not be shy about this, ask how old the crib is, how has it been used, has it ever been repaired, and is there anything missing? If anything is missing you definitely do not want to buy it.” The other suggestion is to make sure it is in good conditions, no cracks and not worn out.

Canadian Cancer Society offers help and launches Driven to Quit Challenge to Quit Challenge, Ontarians who use tobacco have an opportunity to improve their health and make 2014 their healthiest year yet.” The Canadian Cancer Society is encouraging tobacco users to get a head start on their New Year’s resolutions and consider quitting smoking by registering for The Driven to Quit Challenge, contacting Smokers’ Helpline for support, as well as by following the tips below. 10 tips to stay smoke-free during the holidays 10. Let your family and friends know - For many, this time of year is when we see our family and friends the most. Let them know that you are becoming smoke-free and how excited you are

about it. Most importantly, let them know that the greatest gift they could give you would be their support. 9. Know your triggers and be prepared for them - Understand your smoking behaviour, such as what makes you want to light up. Avoid those situations, where possible. If you can’t, come up with an alternative to smoking. For example, if your morning coffee is a trigger, switch it up with a morning walk. 8. Know your reasons and believe you can do it - Write down your reasons for quitting smoking and keep that list with you so you can refer to it often. Holiday stress can sometimes overcome holiday joy, but a visual reminder just might be the encouragement you need to put your

quit plan into action. 7. Limit alcohol consumption - Too much alcohol can impair your judgment and make it easier to slip up and reach for a pack of smokes. Get creative and make some fun mocktails so that you don’t feel like you are missing out during the festivities. 6. Avoid events with a lot of other smokers - This can be tough, but it’s an important tip to follow if you know your trigger is being around other smokers. Keep in mind that you can suggest alternative social gatherings that don’t emphasize smoking or you can connect with them in other ways such as by phone, Facebook or email. 5.

time of year can be busy, so your routine might be compromised. If you normally exercise for one hour but are struggling to fit a workout into your schedule, try 20 minutes of physical activity. Some physical activity is better than nothing. 4. Start now! - The rush of the holiday season can often be an excuse to say, “I’ll start Monday,” which can easily turn into, “I’ll start in the New Year.” The sooner you begin your journey to become smoke-free, the more progress you will make by the time the New Year begins. 3. Get help - Quit Coaches at Smokers’ Helpline can help you develop a plan and answer your unique questions. They have the tools to share with you so that you can succeed. And they are really nice and non-judgmental. 2. Try Nicotine Replacement Therapy - It might be hard to imagine going through your day without a cigarette in your hand, but nicotine replacement products such as the patch, inhaler, oral spray, gum and lozenges can help control cravings and keep you focused on your quit plan. Everyone who registers for the Driven to Quit Challenge is eligible to receive discount coupons for purchases on a Nicoderm transdermal patch or one of the selection of Nicorette product formats. Coupons are available for a limited time only and while quantities last. 1. Give yourself an incentive - Having a specific milestone or goal in mind can help motivate you. Register for The Driven to Quit Challenge! The Driven to Quit Challenge invites Ontario tobacco users to register and break their addiction for a chance to win a new car or one of several cash prizes. “We know smokers and ex-smokers participate in seasonal festivities and face many situations that might sabotage all the hard work they have done to become smoke-free,” says Krista Scaldwell, vice president, communications at Johnson & Johnson Inc. “Holiday gatherings are often occasions to overindulge, making it even harder to fight the urge to use tobacco. But by planning ahead and finding support, quitters can arm themselves with an arsenal of smoke-free strategies and successfully navigate the season’s social challenges and help you start off the New Year by doing something amazing.” Registration is now open until Feb. 28, 2014. To register and for more details about The Driven to Quit Challenge, go to www.DrivenToQuit.ca or call the Canadian Cancer Society’s Smokers’ Helpline at 1-877-513-5333. About the Driven to Quit Challenge The Canadian Cancer Society, Ontario Division’s Driven to Quit Challenge, presented by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, division of Johnson & Johnson Inc., is a health promotion campaign that is intended to motivate adult Ontario tobacco users to quit smoking or other forms of tobacco for one month with the help of a support “buddy” for their chance to win a grand prize of a car. Participants are encouraged to access Smokers’ Helpline and Smokers’ Helpline Online for cessation support.

Be smart in severe weather conditions

Photo by JAN MURRAY

Almost 50 eager carolers arrived at the Church of the Redeemer Dec. 8 to partake in a little caroling and enjoy the fourth annual ‘Lighting of the Gate’ in Rockport. The event, put on by the Church of the Redeemer and the Rockport

Development Group has always drawn a fair sized crowd. They begin by singing a few carols inside the church before venturing outside to sing a few more, light up the gate, and then stroll through the village to sing some more.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Champ program works to ensure legacy of war veterans never forgotten DEAR EDITOR:

I belong to Operation Legacy, a group of members of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program dedicated to preserving Canada’s military heritage and teaching other young people how to carry on the remembrance message. This year, The War Amps is celebrating a major anniversary. Ninety-five years ago, First World War amputee veterans formed The Amputations Association of the Great War. The name was changed to The War Amputations of Canada when Second World War amputees joined their ranks. These men later started the CHAMP Program to assist young amputees like me.

In addition to having had the privilege of learning about Canada’s military heritage from a young age, I also know what it is like to live without a limb – a strong bond that I share with war amputee veterans. Because of this, I feel it is my duty to ensure that the stories of war are preserved and its lessons never forgotten. I encourage everyone – particularly young people – to learn more through The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries, which are available at a cost-recovery price at waramps.ca. Sincerely, Jamey Irwin Operation Legacy Member

Editorial – Whether we like it or not, winter is officially here and arrived earlier this year than most. Sometimes we need a reminder on how to dress appropriately for the conditions. Playing outside in the snow can be fun, but the dangers of frostbite and hypothermia aren’t a laughing matter. According to the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, frostbite, the freezing of the skin and layers of tissue underneath, can occur when temperatures dip below -4 degrees Celsius and can be hard to feel. If outside for prolonged periods of time, the health unit recommends you check for white or grey spots on the skin or areas that may have lost feeling. Tingling and pain can also be signs of frostbite, which normally affects the feet, hands and ears. Hypothermia, when heat is lost from the body faster than you can create it, is equally serious as once this happens you may not be able to think clearly. It requires immediate medical attention and if outside, you should watch for symptoms including: loss of memory, shivering, slurred speech or loss of consciousness. To combat the wicked winter chills, make sure you are bundled in layers of warm dry clothing, drink hot fluids, cover exposed skin when outdoors and be aware of the early signs of frostbite and hypothermia. To ensure you and your family stay warm this winter, the health unit also recommends a heated environment of 20 degrees Celsius be maintained.

Mother’s memories made her sombre during holidays Lifestyle - My sister Audrey, I thought, was the smartest girl at the Northcote School. And I knew for a fact, she was the smartest of us five children. Couldn’t she braid grass, knit dishcloths, do cross-stitch on tea towels, and recite the Lord’s Prayer and the 23rd Psalm without forgetting a word? And so that day in December, it was my very clever sister Audrey who told me a secret about our mother, that I believed with all my heart to be the gospel truth. And it also explained much as well, why Mother did the things she did on occasion. Audrey said there was a perfectly good reason why Mother’s mind sometimes seemed to be a million miles away that time of year. I certainly was aware that her thoughts often seemed to be somewhere else, especially when I asked her a question about our own Christmas which was coming up, and which filled me with great anticipation. And the day I asked her if she thought, if I wrote a special letter to Santa Claus, and asked him for a pair of white galoshes with real fur down the fronts, just like bad Marguirite had, would I get them, and I saw a sadness come over her

face. She didn’t answer right away, and when she did, I noticed a catch in her throat, as if she was going to cough, and she said I had to remember that Santa had a long list of children who wanted some things he just couldn’t supply. And I knew then, I wouldn’t be seeing the white rubber galoshes with the fur down their fronts. I wasn’t too sure what Mother had to do with Santa’s decision. But I soon understood what my sister meant when she said sometimes our mother’s mind was a million miles away. It was mid December. Time to put up the few decorations we had. There was the braided rope made of thin cardboard loops glued together and strung across the kitchen, corner to corner.

were the two hand-made wreaths for the frosted kitchen windows, and the big picture of Santa thumb- tacked to the stairwell door. Mother sat and looked at what had been done to try to make the kitchen (the only room in the house warm enough to sit in during the winter), presentable for the holiday season, and she let out a long sigh. Audrey said Mother was remembering the many Christmas decorations she had when she lived in New York, and which she had described to my sister...things like silver bells for the outside of the door, candlesticks made of pure white wax, and glass holders in the shape of small pine trees for the dining room table. We didn’t even have a dining room on the farm in Northcote! Audrey said this time of year, Mother tried, but couldn’t get her Christmases in New York out of her mind. She remembered shopping in Macie’s Department Store, money to buy just about anything she wanted, glass decorations for the big tree in the parlour, and wrapping paper and ribbon in every colour in the rainbow to wrap the many presents she would buy. The way Audrey explained it, I knew

then that Mother secretly pined for all that she had left behind in her beloved New York City, to come to the backwoods of Renfrew County...where every penny was hard-earned. And instead of going to the city bank for money, Mother went to the blue sugar bowl in the backto-the-wall cupboard to take out a few pennies from her “egg money.” And my sister said it was sometimes a sad time for Mother, even though the rest of the family was all caught up in the Christmas spirit out there in Renfrew County. Audrey said I wasn’t to think it was anything I had done to make mother sad. And that made me feel better. Not a lot better. But a little better just the same. And my very wise sister said to me that I was to try to make our mother forget about her life in that far-away city. And it had nothing to do about being good she said. It had everything to do with trying to keep Mother’s mind busy in our home out there in Northcote. And I asked Audrey how I could do that. And being clever like she was, my sister had the perfect answer. I was to say often how pretty the kitchen was with its hand-made paper

streamers stretched across the room... how I loved the smell of her mince-meat pies...and how I loved going into Renfrew with her when she delivered her wares door to door. That seemed simple enough to me. And I like to think it worked, as I took my wise sister’s advice to heart. That year was not unlike any other Christmas on the farm during those lean Depression days. As the day grew closer, Mother’s mood changed. Baking consumed many hours. We five children could hardly contain our excitement. The Christmas concert was ahead of us, the smell of the big pine tree already in the corner of the kitchen filled the room, and there were whispers of secrets not to be shared. There was joy in the house. We would be celebrating the true meaning of Christmas in the Lutheran Church...neighbours would come and go, and we would return their visits. And Mother, for a time, put behind her the memories of another time and another place. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

debris and particles from inside the transmission, leaving over half of the fluid unchanged isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the best way to do things. To complicate things, often shops

that can complete the flush method donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always recommend a filter change at the same time. So, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get this service done (and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critical to the long life of a very expensive-to-repair component) get a flush type done with a filter change. The other comment in DJâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter that caught my attention was the advice he received from his dealership service department to simply shift the transmission into D3 to eliminate the shudder (by pressing the button at the end

of the gear shift lever). This bypassed a major feature of the vehicle (the lock-up torque convertor) designed to improve fuel mileage and our reader did note that this CRVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fuel economy took a dive after the vehicle was used predominantly in the D3 gear. All the ramifications of putting off a needed repair must be explained by the service provider to ensure the customer is making as an informed decision as possible.

Lifestyle - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Brian, We have a 2006 Honda CRV with 174,000 km on it now. Our last service, we were told the vehicle has â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;torque converter shudderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. This condition, as explained, involves the transmission. Back around the 80,000 km mark, the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;shudderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; began. I went to the Honda dealer then and tried to explain what was happening. They took the vehicle for a test drive, etc. Do you think the vehicle would do it (shudder)? No! This is what happenedâ&#x20AC;Ś many miles later; it started the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;shudderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; again. I went back to the Honda dealer and told them I went on the Internet and may have found what was going on. The service manager said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hondas, especially CRVs, make this noise and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a common occurrence. Put your gear shift in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;D3â&#x20AC;&#x2122; mode and it will stop the shudder.â&#x20AC;? I did as I was told. Now, it was past the warranty period and I was told I was looking at a $500 to $1,000 fix-up (for the shudder noise). The vehicle still does this shudder now and I put the gear shift in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;D3â&#x20AC;&#x2122; mode (there is a push-button depression on the gear shift). What causes this? Are there any TSBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fix-up? I keep my oil changed regularly and rotate the tires every three to six months. I remember I had to change my differential fluid (prematurely) because of noises in the rear end. Is the transmission in the same boat?â&#x20AC;? Thank you, DJ While a number of driveline and chassis components can cause a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;shudderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; type vibration, one that disappears with the transmission shifted into D3 usually is caused by an internal transmission fault related to the torque convertor (that large heavy dome-shaped component that connects the engineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crankshaft with the transmissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s input shaft). Most failures have been traced to internal transmission clutch degradation. If this is indeed the case with this 2006 CRV, the repairs can range from a thorough flush and replacement of the fluid up to a complete transmission overhaul. Routine oil changes and tire rotations are great maintenance items to keep up on but are only part of a complete automotive protection program. Automatic transmissions require fluid and filter replacement on a regular basis. Honda Canada recommends replacement of the fluid for the first time on this CRV at 96,000 km and then every 48,000 km after that. This 2006 model with its 174,000 km on it should have had at least two fluid changes. This is a good opportunity to point out there are two main types of automatic transmission fluid services; one where the drain pan is removed and the filter and fluid replaced and one where the fluid is replaced by means of specialized equipment which flushes it out (done with or without a filter change). With most automatic transmissions a simple drain and replace service will only involve replacing less than half the total volume of fluid (the rest stays trapped in various internal passages and inside the torque convertor). As one of the points of doing this service in the first place is to remove suspended fluid

SAFETY TIPS The City wishes you and yours a very happy holiday and provides these tips to help you prevent waste:  Use re-usable gift bags for gift-giving  Re-use colorful flyers to giftwrap your presents  If you buy giftwrap try to buy paper that has no foil or plastic content, since the paper wraps can be recycled.

Please remember Christmas and New Year holidays happen on Wednesday this year which means that collection from Wednesday on, during those two weeks will be delayed by a day. Monday and Tuesday of those weeks remain unaffected. Please refer to your collection calendar for details.

Christmas tree collection will take place on your regular waste collection day the week of January 6th to the 10th. Please recycle your natural Christmas tree by placing it out at the curb for collection that week. Please be sure to remove all decorations, tinsel and tree bags or it will be left behind. No artificial trees please! Please ensure that it does not get buried in any snow banks, as this will also mean it will not be collected.

Fort Town Concert Association concert features rising star Arts - Fort Town Concert Association’s second concert in the 2013-2014 series took place recently at St. Andrew’s Church, Prescott. The Jeunesses Musicales performers were Simone Osborne soprano, accompanied by Anne Larlee piano. Winner of a number of prestigious awards including the Metropolitan Opera

National Council Auditions and the inaugural winner of the Maureen Forrester Award, Simone Osborne demonstrated to all that she is a rising star to watch. The theme of the program was “Songs of Life and Love” in songs which ranged from the bel canto demands of Bellini to German lieder, to art songs and contemporary Canadian songs. With the

polished accompaniment of Larlee, Osborne’s voice and presence thrilled and enthralled her audience. The opening Bellini songs required a large vocal range with a clear, soaring high register. As bel canto songs, they also required agility of voice and a lyrical, clear line. The songs which Osborne chose were descriptive - the silvery moon, a rose tightly clasped, memory of a cherished event - each one sung in beautiful bel canto style, with charm and elegance. These were followed by the Schumann cycle of eight songs titled “A Woman’s Life and Love”. These require the skill of a storyteller in full partnership with the piano. In these the accompanist, Larlee, excelled in her art and sensitivity to the singer. Each song describes a defining

event in a woman’s life; falling in love at first sight, reciprocation of that love, the magic of her engagement ring, joy and sadness of the wedding day, pregnancy, the birth of and love for her child, and in the final song, the tragedy of the death of her partner. It was a superb and moving performance by both artists. The second part of the program began with two commissioned works by the Toronto composer, Brian Current. Current’s vocal work has been described as “extreme”. The first one was particularly demanding, and one could not imagine either piece being performed by any other than the duo of Osborne and Larlee. The degree of precision between voice and piano was so “extreme” that the sound predominated and the words were irrelevant. R0012477962_1219

It was interesting to hear Current’s music, even more to hear how these performers worked with it. Three songs by Reynaldo Hahn followed. Hahn was a French composer who died in 1974, and so could be considered “modern”. However, his songs are in the late romantic style. Descriptive and contemplative with lovely melodies, they were sung with a rich lower register and clear high notes allowing Osborne to refocus her voice after the previous section. A group of five early songs by Richard Strauss completed the program. Popular with singers, they are also demanding, requiring warm controlled tone and dramatic involvement in their presentation. Osborne again sang these beautifully, radiating the emotion of each song so that the audience was totally involved in the music. This was an evening to remember, presented by two very talented young women. As Osborne’s voice matures, she will go far in the operatic world - and we heard her first in Prescott. In keeping with the decision to present talented local artists, the concert was opened by two local pianists, Malcolm Gillis pianist, teacher and accompanist, and Clifford Piehl, a student at Queen’s University. Gillis performed a Schubert Impromptu from Op. 90, followed by Piehl playing the Liszt setting for solo piano of the Petrarch Sonnet No. 104. We then had a preview of “First Night” in Brockville with a lively duet performance of a Slavonic Dance by Dvorak. The performances were much enjoyed and appreciated by the audience.

Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Thousand Islands Playhouse is excited to announce the success of their inaugural Playwrightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Unit in 2013, and that they are now accepting submissions to be part of the second year of this exclusive initiative. Now entering its second year, the Playwrightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Unit is a year-long residency program designed to nurture promising playwrights. The writers will develop new plays over the course of the residency with artistic support from artistic director Ashlie Corcoran through monthly meetings, a week-long writing retreat in Gananoque, and workshops of the script (one during the summer months and one later in December). In December 2014, the community will be invited to a free PlayReading Week to showcase each writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work with professional actors and offer an opportunity for discussion with the artists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our first Playwrightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Unit just concluded with the public PlayReading Week,â&#x20AC;? says Corcoran. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of how these five talented writers grew their works through this program, and excited to see what will develop next year with our second group.â&#x20AC;? To be considered for the 2014 Playwrightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Unit, please send: - A cover letter introducing yourself, specific theatrical interests, and an idea that you would like to explore in the Unit (one page maximum). - A resume (two page maximum). - A selection of writing from a past play (10 page maximum).

Holiday Fire Safety Tips



1) Have an escape plan, two ways out and a mee ng place where the fire department can find you when they arrive. 2) Make sure you have working smoke detectors and change ba eries every year. Do the same for carbon monoxide detectors. 3) If your smoke or carbon monoxide detectors go off, get everyone outside and call 911. 4) Candles are beau ful, but make sure they are in sturdy/secure holders, out of reach of children and pets, away from combus ble materials and ex nguished before leaving the room or going to bed. 5) Ensure electrical outlets are not overloaded with holiday ligh ng or special effects and extension cords are used properly (do not run under carpets, furniture or doorways) 6) Use only approved lights. Check lights for cracked or broken bulbs, frayed wires and loose plugs. 7) Use lights only for their designated areas; never use “indoor only” lights outdoors. 8) Don’t leave your holiday cooking una ended 9) If using a real Christmas tree, ensure it’s in a stable stand and water level is checked daily. Most trees dry out in a couple of weeks and are more suscep ble to fire so don’t leave your tree up long past the holidays. 10) Keep your tree and presents away from fireplaces, radiators, and other heat sources. 11) Keep exhaust vents and all exits from your home free and clear. 12) Keep a close eye on anyone in your household that consumes alcohol while cooking or smoking.

Brockville Police team up with Tim Hortons

GET YOUR CHOLESTEROL IN CHECK Limit your intake of saturated fat found mainly in red meat and high-fat dairy products.

News - The Brockville Police has partnered with Tim Hortons this year in order to keep your roads safe. Officers will be equipped with Tim Hortons cards offering sober drivers a free coffee. As the Holiday RIDE season begins drivers are reminded to “Arrive Alive and Don’t Drink and Drive!” said Inspector Scott Fraser. The RIDE programs will be set up at various times in various parts of the city. The risk is not worth it! If you are going to drink before you drive, make it a double double, say the police. A special thank you to Shane Joyce and Tim Hortons for their support, a great community effort.

News - Squeaky came to the shelter in August after his owner died. His fur was in terrible shape. It was matted to the skin with some parts hanging off him. For the first weeks after he arrived all we saw of him was his large fear- filled eyes peering out from behind his hide and perch box, accompanied by a hiss. His face, when we saw it, expressed sadness. It was the look of resignation, as though he believed that any chance of happiness for him was gone. Many owned pets die of a broken heart. We were unsure if Squeaky would come around or would choose not to let humans back into his life. We are thrilled to say Squeaky’s story has a happy ending. Days turned into weeks and weeks into months but like many former pets who have been alone for a long time, his pent up need for love seemed to burst out and his defences cracked. He is a lovely soul who now is ready to find himself a second chance home. He is not bothered by other passive cats. He is talkative and just adores treats and canned food. We have had all the matted knots shaved off him. They were mostly on his hind legs and belly. He will need to be combed frequently as his fur is growing back. Squeaky is a seven-year-old neutered Persian looking for a loving home that will cherish him. If you are especially fond of black cats, as some people are, this is a good month for adopting one into your life from the Gananoque & District Humane Society. We’re holding a Home for the Holidays! Adoptathon to place as many pets as we can into homes by year’s end. All cats and kittens are fixed, vaccinated and micro-chipped and are being offered for the bargain rate of $100 for a kitten ($75 if black) and $75 for an adult ($50 if black). Please visit them at our shelter at 85 Hwy. 32 north of the 401 and Gananoque, weekdays from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 613-382-1512. Email humanesociety@ bellnet.ca. Squeaky could be yours for $50, so don’t wait!

The Zoning By-law Amendment affects an area of approximately 5,200 m2 (1.3 acres) located at the northeast corner of Read Street and Lewis Street West. The area includes the unopened Drummond Street road allowance between Read Street and St. Patrick Street. The Zoning By-law Amendment re-zones the area from the “Development” (D) Zone to the “Residential Type 2-Exception” (R2-1) and “Residential Type 3-Exception” (R3-1) Zones. The subject area is currently vacant, but is designated for residential development in the Official Plan. The Zoning By-law Amendment: 1. re-zones the Lewis Street West road frontage to the “Residential Type 2-Exception” (R2-1) Zone to permit a total of 14 street townhouse dwellings; and, 2. re-zones the balance of the area, including the unopened Drummond Street road allowance, to the “Residential Type 3-Exception” (R3-1) Zone to permit a 3-storey, 43 unit apartment building. As part of the proposed apartment project, the Village intends to convey the unopened Drummond Street road allowance to the developer to include in the apartment building property. The “exception” provisions in both the R2-1 and R3-1 Zones establish site specific regulations for setbacks and density in order to permit the proposed development. KEY MAP

NOTIFICATION Habitat Regulations for Protecting Species at Risk Ontario is fortunate to have a wide variety of plants and animals. Over 200 of these species, however, are currently â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;at riskâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. One of the key threats to their survival is habitat loss. Under the Endangered Species Act, 2007, the Government of Ontario has passed habitat regulations for Bogbean Buckmoth, Four-leaved Milkweed, Fowlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Toad, Lauraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Clubtail, Queensnake and Rusty-patched Bumble Bee and an amendment to the existing habitat provision for Pale-bellied Frost Lichen. These provisions will help protect and recover these plants and animals. The regulations come into force on January 1, 2014. Want to know more about habitat regulations or the Endangered Species Act? Information on the regulations is available on the Environmental Registry of the Environmental Bill of Rights website at ontario.ca/ebr (Registry #011-9021) and on the Species at Risk website at ontario.ca/speciesatrisk.

On Sunday, Dec. 8 the Thousand Islands Martial Arts (TIMA) annual Christmas Party took place at the St. John Ambulance building, Brockville with several achievement awards and recognitions handed out. Above, TIMA owner Valerie Cummings (middle) presents Constable Mike Grant (left) of the Brockville Police Association with an appreciation award recognizing the generous donation of $500 made to the TIMA Family Support Fund. In addition, dispatcher Brian Curley, right, representing the Brockville Police Service Board accepts the award on its behalf, for matching the same amount with $500. Cummings does her best to work with Champion for Kids, Making Play Possible and with Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aid, but when funding is cut, so is the financial assistance to families. So these two donations are really making a difference in the lives of children. At top, in addition to having Santa Claus arrive at the party, the following individuals also received achievement awards. From left to right are Emmy Guild receiving the Perseverance Award; Evan Duffy the Most Improved Student Award; Austin Lanctot the Junior Volunteer Award; Angela Lanctot the Volunteer Award; and Grace Whiteland the Team Spirit Award. Those missing from the photo are Spencer Casselman for the Award of Excellence and Jessica Jackson for Dedication and Commitment.

There’s nothing like the office Christmas party Lifestyle - With Christmas rapidly approaching it is party season. In modern times at least the Christmas party – especially office parties – are as much anticipated as other annual holiday rituals including the Santa Claus parade, decorating the Christmas tree and exchanging gifts. Admittedly with the recession having bitten deep in many sectors, a lot of companies have canceled Christmas parties and cut or eliminated holiday bonuses in an effort to stay in the black. Seems a shame, but it’s a reality of the economic times we face early in the 21st Century. My wife and I are fortunate enough to be on a number of holiday guest lists. Right now we are in the midst of a Christmas social bonanza. The party season started two weeks ago and continues every weekend until the third week of this month. I put it down to longevity actually. The longer you work in certain professions and the longer you live in a community, the more likely you are to receive invitations to events. For us Christmas is the busiest time of the year. Our calendar is marked by a series of work-related and community parties along with seasonal concerts and private dinners! Of course nothing can replace the enjoyment of spending the holidays with our children, other family members and friends. Still, I wouldn’t miss the Christmas party circuit. Not a chance! If you

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

enjoy conversation and people watching (I’m a shameless chatterbox and people watcher) then there is nothing like holiday parties. I am rarely, if ever, disappointed. If you have ever attended an office or company Christmas party you will relate to this! It usually goes this way. Dinner is preceded by the mandatory social hour. Get there early because the line-ups at the bar are lengthy, especially if the boss, in a moment of weakness, decides to run a tab for the first half hour. Most of us gravitate to those we work with or the people we know, including acquaintances made during many years of holiday soirees. Most people clean up nicely but there are always a few exceptions. Some gents are very uncomfortable in penguin suits and spend the evening pulling at their collars or straightening their ties. While many ladies are at their stylish best there are always two or three who try to squeeze into dresses two or three sizes too small (last year’s apparel probably). And there is always one or two

women who choose gowns that are cut all the way to China. They generally attract lots of male attention which is no doubt the object of the exercise. Then there are the dressed down party-goers. Those who think blue jeans are formal wear, that a bulky sweater with a rolled collar is de rigueur or that an open necked shirt is appropriate. Of course at most Christmas parties the office joker shows up wearing a loud sweater – red, white and green – with Santa Claus and his reindeer or a snowman emblazoned on the front. Normally Rudolph’s nose or the snowman’s carrot schnoz is a horn! Trading stories Gossip is the fodder of most Christmas parties. What better time to trade stories than over a few drinks with colleagues! The firm, certain unpopular employees and usually the manager and/ or owner are normally on the wrong end of some well-aimed barbs or jokes. Like the reception itself, that is mandatory! Usually these affairs are incredibly loud. The din in the reception room reaches a crescendo as people guzzle their third drink in 20 minutes. Personally I enjoy those “Red Skelton” moments when someone shouts something particularly insulting just as the conversation wanes. Their remark can clearly be heard at the other end of the building. Brilliant! Dinner at these affairs can either be a treat or a disaster. Large tables are a bonus. Because if the settings are too

Most such activities conclude with a dance. In many cases budgetary constraints lead managers to hire a disc jockey. There are rare exceptions of course, but usually DJs have a set pattern. First of all they spin a couple of mouldy, oldies (Jerry Mathis or Frank Sinatra) to give the old folks, who usually comprise at least half the crowd, a slow dance or two. That is invariably followed by that infamous DJ question, shouted into the microphone at the top of their lungs, “Are you ready to party?” The music then hits Mach 7 and the roof nearly comes off the building. The rest of the night I am reduced to trying to read lips. Usually the lips are my wife’s or the person seated on the other side of me. It’s a wholly unsuccessful endeavor and I just try to smile, frown or nod in the right places. The evening is saved by the aforementioned people watching. With liquid refreshments flowing freely the inhibitions of a lot of folks go out the window. I know we’ve reached that stage when someone tries to lie across three chairs and ends up on the floor. Off come the shoes and with arms and legs flailing like windmills the dance floor is turned into a danger zone. Ah, the office Christmas party. Whatever you do, don’t miss yours!

tight you normally find someone else using your napkin, drinking out of your glass or, worst of all, buttering your roll using your knife. As for the meal itself, if you encounter mystery meat at a Christmas party it is usually turkey. Having table service, something we enjoyed recently, is a bonus. Most of these events feature buffets and usually our table is the last called. Even the mystery meat is gone by the time we reach the buffet! The holiday smorgasbords are also noteworthy due to the number of people who spill gravy on the floor and/or themselves. Running a slippery 100 metre gauntlet of starving party-goers balancing a heaping plate of food, in formal wear with a bun and butter jammed in each pocket is a feat worthy of a medal. Or at the very least a larger bonus! Then you have to do it all over again if you want dessert and a coffee. Brutal! If you survive the reception and dinner you are in for a real treat during the entertainment portion of the evening. At many of these shindigs the boss or manager takes the opportunity to address the masses, thanking them for their diligence, punctuality and contribution to the bottom line. References to the balance sheet are normally accompanied by a cautionary note. Something like, “If you want a party next year you’re going to have to work twice as hard in 2014. Merry Christmas!” Cue the catcalls.

What to give the new homeowner on your list Lifestyle - If a new homeowner is on your holiday gift list this year, you may be in for a challenge. What do you give someone that could use one of everything? “A new homeowner has just embarked on probably the biggest investment they will ever make,” says Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “It’s fun shopping for someone who has a long wish list. Almost anything you give this person will be appreciated. The challenge is not in coming up with gift ideas, it is in narrow-

ing the list down and deciding on the most fitting and appropriate gift.” When asked for their gift giving recommendations, some Ontario realtors suggested the following: Tablet computer – for researching do-it-yourself home repairs and recipes with. Coffee maker – because who doesn’t need a coffee maker? Canadian flag pole kit – go on, wave that homeownership pride. Garage door openers – true appreciation for this gift is realized in November and peaks in

January. Home improvement store gift cards – no amount is too high for a new homeowner. Bottle of wine – to toast the new home and holidays with. Garden accessories – to keep the outside of the home looking as beautiful as the inside. Welcome mat – it’s the next best thing to a white picket fence. Fireplace set – even if it’s gas, every fireplace could use this accessory. Home alarm – to keep things safe and sound at all times.

“I have the most fun shopping for the new homeowner on my list,” says Dorner. “We all love this special time of year, but for someone who’s celebrating the holidays in a new home, it’s that much more special. I just love being a part of that experience.” To connect with an Ontario Realtor in your area, visit www. wedothehomework.ca.

Lifestyle - Do you feel more stressed during the holiday season? While this time of year can be a time of joy, many people can also find it stressful. Between family and work gatherings, holiday financial pressures and consumer overload, the holiday season can certainly take a toll. And what if you’re alone at this time of togetherness? Here are some helpful tips: • Set realistic expectations about what you can accomplish over the holiday season. Try to establish some balance between what you do for others and what you do for yourself. • If spending time with family is stressful for you, set limits on the amount of time you spend with them. • Consider sharing the holiday meal preparations with friends and family to ease the load. • Holidays can bring up feelings of loss and a sense of being alone and disconnected. If you have a friend or family member you can talk to, try to spend some time with them or connect with them on the telephone. • Some religious organizations or groups have special services you can attend for people who are alone during the holidays. This can be a good opportunity

ends with hot chocolate. • Help a homeless chipmunk – lay your tree in the backyard after Christmas to shelter birds and small wild animals. • Sawing down a Christmas tree hones your turkey-carving technique. • Ontario Christmas trees are everywhere. With hundreds of retailers across the province, your perfect tree could be just around the corner. This holiday season, the Ontario government, the Christmas Tree Farmers of Ontario, the Ontario Forestry Association and Trees Ontario are teaming up to support sustainably grown Ontario Christmas trees. “Ontario Christmas tree farms are managed for the long term and provide the ecological benefits of forests all year-

round. When one tree is harvested another three are planted in its place,” stated Carla Grant, executive director of the Ontario Forestry Association. “Come out to a local farm and enjoy the last harvest of the season by choosing a real Ontario tree,” added Shirley Brennan, executive director of Christmas Tree Farmers of Ontario. Rock around the Christmas tree with us! Dec. 7 was National Christmas Tree Day, a day to celebrate the benefits of buying natural Christmas trees. Did you know… • One million Christmas trees are harvested and sold in Ontario each year generating $5 million in sales. • Five-hundred Christmas tree farms help to support jobs and local economies

across Ontario. • Christmas trees are grown as an agricultural crop. For every tree harvested, three seedlings are planted for future holiday seasons. • It takes eight to 10 years to grow an eight-foot Christmas tree, depending on the species. • Thirty-five per cent of Ontario consumers buy real Christmas trees every year. • Natural Christmas trees are recyclable and completely biodegradable. • Every hectare of planted Christmas trees produces enough daily oxygen for 45 people.

Lifestyle – You can’t deck the halls without the perfect Christmas tree. Every kid knows that’s where Santa puts the presents. For adults, it’s the fragrant hallmark of Christmas past, present and future. More than 500 Ontario farmers produce more than one million Christmas trees each year. So find a fir, pick a pine or select a spruce. Choose one that’s tall and skinny, or short and chubby like Santa Claus. “An Ontario-grown Christmas tree, whether it’s purchased direct from a tree farm or from a retail vendor is sustainably grown, supports our economy and is both renewable and recyclable,” said Minister of Natural Resources, David Orazietti. Searching for a locally grown Christmas tree? Look for the Ontario Wood tag or ask the retailer where the trees were

Toasting traditions

Have a

Safe and Happy Holiday

At this time of year festive gatherings with friends and family give us ample opportunity to drink to the health of the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hosts, to celebrate old friends, or simply to say goodbye to one year and welcome in the next. Certain customs go along with this ritual. To make a formal toast, be sure you have something to say and say it in as few words as possible â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no one wants a repeat of that interminable toast Uncle Bill made last year. But we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really need a specific reason to raise our glasses; an informal toast can be offered simply to launch the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first round of cocktails or wine. Make sure everyone has been served a drink before proposing a toast, and make eye contact when you tap glasses. Keep in mind that toasting is not done the same way all around

from all the staff at

the world. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re travelling, make sure that you are informed about the appropriate time to offer a toast. A SHORT HISTORY OF TOASTING Toasting dates back to the Middle Ages when poisoning the enemy was par for the course. Banging overflowing glasses together allowed the two drinks to be mixed and served as a declaration of peace and conviviality. Looking over the drink and straight into the eyes of adversaries helped to assess their reaction and judge their true intentions. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope that this Christmas brings friendlier terms to your toasting! On that note, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and cheers to one and all.

This Purple Private Investigator will keep you under surveillance Lifestyle - Hi, my name is Baby, I am an eight-year-old white and brown male tabby. In the Meet Your Match Program I am a Purple Private Investigator. I’m working undercover to keep an eye on you and your household. You may not even know you’re under surveillance. I can vanish into thin air if anyone or anything interferes with my investigation. If you need a cat who knows how to stay out of trouble and will always keep your secrets, I just might take your case. My adoption fee includes cost of my surgery, microchip identification, de-flea and de-worm treatment, first set of vac-

cinations and six weeks of complimentary pet insurance. Our I Adopt Campaign is on now until Dec. 31 so my adoption fee is $99 until the end of the year. Come by the Ontario SPCA – Leeds & Grenville Branch, 800 Centennial Rd., Brockville to see about adopting me. Our Adoption Centre is open seven days a week (Sunday 12 p.m. – 4 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Thursday 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.). Phone 613-345-5520 or email leedsgrenville@ospca.on.ca or Like us on Facebook for up to date info.

Participants and volunteers at a 5k run held last weekend at the Memorial Centre in Brockville were eager to get inside and get warm after the frigid exercise. The event was held by students from the Humanitarian Education Leadership Program (HELP) club at Thousand Islands Secondary School to raise money for its adopt-a-village campaign, which students have taken on in the hope of helping to build a school in an impoverished Nicaraguan village.

“MOST PEOPLE TALK RECYCLING, WE DO IT” 34 ST. LAWRENCE EMC - Thursday, December 19, 2013

News - The Prescott Heritage Committee’s mission is to revitalize the heritage buildings in Prescott, the Historic Fort Town on the St. Lawrence River. In order to raise funds for various projects scheduled for 2014, the PHC has created a 16” x 20” full colour poster featuring the Heritage Doors of Prescott, Ontario. In total 20 doors are displayed including doors from three local churches, the Grand Trunk Railway Station and doors from several designated homes in Prescott. Many who have purchased this limited edition poster have had fun locating the doors around town. Cost for the poster is $10 (taxes included). Each poster comes with a carton for easy mailing to friends and family. Posters are available at the Prescott Public Library, the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Office and Beach Home Hardware. To reserve a poster, an ideal gift for Christmas, please contact Suzanne Dodge, chair of the Prescott Heritage Committee at 613-925-4665 or by email at ssdodge@sympatico.ca.

Bull Dogs throw scare into Blackhawks in a goaltendersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; duel Sports - Jeff â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youngbloodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Juneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tying goal with just under five minutes remaining in the game kept the Island City Blackhawks undefeated road record of 7-0-2 intact. The Spencerville Bull Dogs were oh so close to handing the Blackhawks their first road loss of the season as they skated to a 3-3 tie last Wednesday night in Spencer City. The visiting Hawks were determined to get back to their winning ways coming off an 8-2 shellacking at the hands of the Grumpies from Finch days earlier. Dale Visser and his hard working Dogs had other ideas and were minutes away from handing the Hawks their second consecutive loss. After trailing 2-0 in the second period the Dogs showed they had some The game featured outstanding perforbite in their game as they scored three consecutive goals and held a slim 3-2 lead late mances at both ends of the rink by the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;caretakers of the corded closetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. in this one.

The Blackhawks call-up â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Cadbury Kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Josh Kane and the Bull Dogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Will MacIntyre were both unbeatable for most of the night. Kane, who dons both chocolate brown pads and gloves, hence â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Cadbury Kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tag, kept the Blackhawks in this game in the opening stanza. Kane baled out his charges as they got over mesmerized by the puck instead of holding their strong positional play. MacIntyre at the other end of the rink definitely kept his canine crew in the game with numerous game saving stops in the second and third period. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play our best game here tonight but in the end we gutted out the tie. That first period for us was mind boggling. We got chasing the puck way too often instead of standing our ground. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cadburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was real good in that period until we got go-

ing,â&#x20AC;? Blackhawk management stated after the game. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Silencerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Trevor Murray put the Hawks up 1-0 midway into the second, Luke â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; McArthur increased that lead to 2-0 minutes later. As in true fashion, the frisky canine crew from Spencer City came barking right back with a pair of goals of their own to knot things up at 2-2 before the second period ended. The Dogs finally completed the comeback with their third unanswered goal to take a 3-2 lead and held on to it until late in the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal was a big one and it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have happened to a more deserving guy. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been snake bit around the net lately, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to see him score and it was big for both him and the rest of our team. That tying goal seemed to go to our legs as

we did everything but score in the final minutes of the game,â&#x20AC;? management reflected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With Wayne out tonight due to illness, it kind of disrupted our lineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chemistry a little in this game. But Luke fit in nicely with us and I have to say his hard work and enthusiasm was contagious to Rob and I. We had our share of great chances, we just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cash in. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt their tender stole this game for those guys. The Bull Dogs played a great game here tonight, but man in the last two periods we did everything we could but score. Their goalie was that good. Hopefully weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get our game back on track in Cardinal on Tuesday night,â&#x20AC;? said Blackhawks team captain J R â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Buckleysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ryan. The Island City crew is off to the Burg this Monday night for ding-ding-ding round two of their bout with the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bullies from the Burgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the Ogdensburg Golden Leafs. Game time is 9 p.m. at the Golden Dome.
