Beef levy announced continued from front source for funding research, market and development promotion activities on domestic and imported beef and beef products.” Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry M.P and former Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture welcomed the minister to the O’Brien Beef Farm just west of Morewood. “I must thank Minister Ritz for being here. He seems to be in SD&G often and it usually means good news for the county and its farmers,” said Lauzon. “When Gerry asked me to be his Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture, I didn’t know much about agriculture. He told me ‘Put farmers first’ and it was the best piece of advice I could have gotten because farming is what this country is all about.” Canada Beef estimates an additional $800,000 will be collected through the import levy on an

annual basis, and these funds will help increase the profitability of Canada’s beef sector. “The Farm Products of Canada Council (FPCC) and Canada Beef have been collaborating on finalizing this amendment for several years now,” said Chuck MacLean, Chair of the agency. “This will help beef producers expand their markets and increase sales and fund research projects, as well as provide increased access to information on beef products to Canadian consumers.” MacLean also added that this new levy will benefit the industry by creating relationships with other markets. He also noted that this levy is a first for the agriculture industry. “Establishing a Promotion and Research Agency helps agricultural producers expand their markets and increase sales,” said Laurent Pellerin, Chairman of the FPCC. “It also benefits consumers from increased access to information on products, including their quality and their nutritional values.”

Pellerin went on to say how proud he was to see the levy go in and gave the industry credit for being the first in the agriculture sector to “change the rules.” Canada Beef, formerly known as the Canadian Beef Cattle Research, Market Development and Promotion Agency, was established in 2002 under Part III of the Farm

Products Agencies Act. The Agency was formed to fund promotion and research initiatives and was the first Promotion and Research Agency established under the Act. Promotion and research enable agencies agricultural groups to conduct generic promotion and research to expand their markets and increase sales through advertising. The FPCC supervises

Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz was in Morewood on July 30th at the O’Brien Beef Farm to make an announcement of a new import levy of $1 per head that will applied to importers. The goal of the levy is to provide more funding for research, promotion and market development activities on domestic and imported beef. Matte photo

to come into effect is still not set in stone. He said that they are giving importers time to get their systems in line and personally hopes that this will come into effect in September or October of 2013.

Storm Internet marks a job done Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff CHESTERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Storm Internet Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broadband wireless expansion project here is complete, a milestone marked last month at the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chesterville support office at the MB Foster Associates building.

Murder investigation Continued from front said the lawsuit to recover the money had been discontinued before Richmond went missing but declined to indicate the reasons why. Close friends and family set up a Facebook page the day after her disappearance and Richmond had posted several times, thanking volunteers for their search efforts and had even arranged a candlelight vigil in Winchester to honour his wife. Just hours before her body was found, Richmond asked volunteers to keep searching for her and spread the word of her disappearance. Howard Richmond, who was a member of the Canadian Forces, is reportedly being treated for post-traumatic stress disorder and

Installation of more than 40 new towers and nodes south of Ottawa began a little over a year ago after Storm landed a $3-million contract through the $170million Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN) program. Today, Storm Internet serves â&#x20AC;&#x153;close to 500 claimed his wife had been helping him through it. On his way to Melissaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wake on Friday, he had asked friends to take him to the police station and they were told not to wait for him. Once in the station, he was arrested and charged with murder before an interrogation with the detectives took place. OPP Sgt. Kristine Rae said she could not comment on whether Richmond was a suspect prior to his voluntary trip to the police station as it would speak to the evidence. Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle was towed from his home after police executed a search warrant. Last week OPP officers were stopping motorists asking if they had seen anything that could shed some light on Melissaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. During the joint investigation with Ottawa police, it was determined that both Melissa and Howard Richmond had filled their respective cars

customersâ&#x20AC;? with wireless broadband Internet on the newly built infrastructure alone, said company CEO Dave Chiswell on July 24, at the barbecue celebration marking the one-yearanniversary of the build. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in addition to about 2,000 existing wireless accounts fed by 70 nodes in the 17-year-old companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural Lanarkarea stronghold, where it retreated as a wireless player after selling its North Dundas-area assets to with gas at the same station at the same time on Wed., July 24, the night Melissa went missing. It is not known what happened after they left the gas station. A Dennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employee recognized Melissaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car and reported it to police. The car still had her purse and keys in it. Police have also seized surveillance video tape from the footage restaurant. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until Sunday morning that police began searching the ravine where they found the body. It has not been disclosed why they concentrated the search in that area. Melissa had very likely been killed very near to where her body had been found and had likely been dead for days. Richmond made a video appearance in court on Sat., Aug. 3 and was expected back in court on yesterday, Aug. 6. There is a publication ban in place on the bail proceedings.

Xplornet several years ago. But with the expiry of the dealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-compete agreement, Storm is competing hard again for local wireless customers in this township and the south Ottawa area. Chesterville resident Birket Foster, founder of software firm MB Foster Associates, is one of the coowners of Storm Internet Services. Company officials and technicians at the event the emphasized combination of technologies allowing the network to achieve 99.96 per cent uptime, affordable customer rates, and topperforming download and upload speeds. The network â&#x20AC;&#x153;passed with flying coloursâ&#x20AC;? EORNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benchmark testing in June, and officials with the funding program have signed off on the system, according to Chiswell. And thanks to desirably low â&#x20AC;&#x153;ping times,â&#x20AC;? the network meets the needs of users looking to abandon regular telephone service for Voice Over Internet Protocol systems (VOIP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Â Skype being just one example. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can now actually Skype without pausing,â&#x20AC;?

Snail mail indeed Canada Post is a public service that belongs to all of us, connecting communities from isolated locations like Petty Harbour Newfoundland to downtown Victoria. The services provided by our public post office are invaluable for individuals and businesses, even in this ‘digital age,’ especially in rural areas. The change made last year on how local mail is processed is a train wreck, or should I say postal truck wreck.   For years local mail would be sorted in its office of origin, usually being delivered the next day.  Now it is sent to urban centres to be sorted and then returned to the local destination address. It seems like such a waste of time just going back and forth, and although   Canada Post has tried to maintain that these changes are not impacting delivery standards, the truth is otherwise. But it is unfair that living in a rural community we pay for the same service as the city, but don’t seem to get it. By this I mean, Russell is approximately 40 minutes from the main Ottawa sorting centre. Regardless if the item is going to Ottawa or not, it does not leave the village until 5pm that evening even if it is a priority package - you are paying over twenty dollars for the convenience of not having to drive into the city, park and deliver it yourself when time is of the essence. Priority must have a different definition for Canada Post than the rest of country. Users aren’t paying for their package or letter to leave with all the regular mail, but to leave earlier, so it gets there earlier - thats what priority means. So why is it treated like regular mail from the beginning - when it isn’t - the cost alone proves that. Would driving to just within the city limits, drop the package there have a better chance of getting to its Ottawa destination quicker?  More than likely because driving from Orleans or Barrhaven doesn’t take as long as it does from Chesterville, Winchester or Russell? Right. If the mail was sorted at source, it could be determined what could go right away instead of only being ‘guaranteed’ for two days later. It is a huge inconvenience for those who don’t work in the city or have transportation to get to the city to deliver it themselves. And let’s not even touch on residents who may have been receiving mail for decades at the end of their driveway and have had their mode of delivery changed to a community mailbox, which could be many kilometres away. The service to rural Canadians has deteriorated but they deserve to have the same mail delivery as urban centres. They pay the same rates and same taxes that support this crown corporation and long standing institution which for decades had prided itself in the quality service of the transportation of our personal and business communications.

Dairyfest and the Dundas County Food Bank The Editor: A s the 25th annivers ary of Dairyfest approaches this weekend, we look forward to another terrific community event. Congratulations to the hardworking volunteers who over the years have made Dairyfest so successful. One of the successful events now in its third year is the Dairy Dash, a 5K run and a 2K scamper, started by Gina Welch as a fund raiser for the Dundas County Food Bank. Gina is now Community D evelopment Coordinator for North Dundas Township and now

oversees all Dairyfest activities, including Dairy Dash. Last year, a 10K was added as well as a w alk option for all dis tances . There w ere about thirty participants in Dairy Dash in year one and two, not only from our area, but also from Ottawa and other parts of Eastern Ontario. We hope this number will increase to forty or fifty participants this year in support of Dundas County Food Bank. Dairy Dash will again be a lot of fun and a great preparation for those thinking of participating in

Sadly missed The Editor: Today I write this letter to express my deep sympathies in the departure of a wonderful and dear man, Glenn Dafoe age 83. I met Glenn and his beautiful wife Audrey ten years ago when I was campaigning. Glenn came up to me with lots to say. He filled me full of life’s experiences and educated me on politics and politicians. Glenn often

encouraged me to not be afraid and keep speaking out, stay true to myself and never stop caring. Glenn loved people and people loved Glenn. I had the utmost respect for Glenn and Audrey because of their honesty and kindness. They have been through tough times, more than I could ever imagine and that’s probably why I listened when Glenn spoke. The

other upcoming events, such as the September 7 Hospital fund raiser only weeks away. In closing, I would also like to congratulate the Winchester Lions Club, another supporter of the Food Bank and the community, on their 45th anniversary this year. On behalf of Dundas County Food Bank, I w ould like to thank everyone including the Chesterville Record for your continued support with donations of time, money and food. Alvin Runnalls DCFB Chair

older generation seem to be engaged, they vote and they care. I will miss you Glenn.

May God watch over you. Tammy A. Hart Newington

Kudos to township The Editor: Thanks and congratulations are due to the township of North Dundas for installing safety rails at the Chesterville pool. It is much appreciated every time I get in or out. Janet Wittam also expressed her appreciation. It is much safer for toddlers, pregnant moms, seniors and my arthritic joints.

SS meets with Ministry over land issue LONG SAULT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; South Stormont Mayor Bryan McGillis met with representatives of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs in an attempt to persuade them to reconsider allowing the counties to consider a plot of prime industrial land as employment lands. The United Counties of SD&G are in the process of finalizing the Official Plan of Rural and Urban Settlement area boundaries and the land was deemed as not employment lands in an unofficial report from the Ministry. McGillis said the

Storm Internet Continued from page 3 He also recounted how an Elma-area business customer was spending $1,000 or more per month on Internet from one of the big cellular networks. But with the switch to Storm, their bill has dropped to about $80, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She saved saved enough on the first

township wseemed to be getting a lot of interest from industry to settle in the area, and excluding this land would be detrimental to the growth of the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why, right now, with the settlement area I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for us to continue to lobby the Municipal Affairs Ministry,â&#x20AC;? said McGillis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have the land, we have the right land. Not just some land here and there that is good for industry or commercial. Look at what your prime land would be. That one area there that they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree should be a part of the settlement, I disagree. So do a lot of people. So does our planner and so does our consultant.â&#x20AC;?

McGillis also commented that the consultant for the original plan the counties paid for also agreed that the land should be included as employment lands for future growth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is saying that it is prime land for that use (industrial), so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take it away,â&#x20AC;? said However, McGillis. McGillis is confident that the message got through to the ministry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am confident that we are on the same page now and we just have to find the solution to make it work,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that now the planners and the ministry have to do their job to â&#x20AC;&#x153;make sure that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose this valuable piece of land.â&#x20AC;?

monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill to go to Niagara Falls with her husband for the weekend.â&#x20AC;? Grant Street of Beckwith Township was subcontracted to build 32 of the new towers for Storm. Street, who has been involved with network rollouts all over the world, suggested there was â&#x20AC;&#x153;no comparisonâ&#x20AC;? in the robustness of Stormâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s network versus the wireless competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a personal

opinion,â&#x20AC;? he added, smiling. The network is deployed on some freestanding towers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including a key unit put up last year at the Chesterville office â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but even more existing structures, such as farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; silos and the Winchester water tower. It employs both point-topoint and point-tomultipoint techniques to cover the region with broadband signal. The

Dunbar Recreation Center rises again

Jeremy Stewart and Joe Major of Wells & Son Construction, Morrisburg, pose July 31 in front of their handiwork at the Dunbar Recreation Centre that is now largely rebuilt. The pair began work at the beginning of June, and all that remained to be done on the exterior of the building were a couple of walls of siding and front-door installation. Many of the basics were also complete on the inside, with a painter already beginning to coat the finished drywall. Major suggested the new building would be ready by the end of this month. The owner, the Township of South Dundas, undertook the project to replace the original rec center that burned down in October 2011 but was insured. Chesterville tower feeds 15 downstream structures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have 200 clients hanging off this one tower,â&#x20AC;? Chiswell told the crowd at the barbecue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forty per cent of our network traffic was running through here last night,â&#x20AC;? he added, reporting the volume at 400 Mbps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of traffic.â&#x20AC;? Chiswell pointed out that Storm will be looking to grow its network into other areas after the

expected wrap-up of another EORN-funded expansion project in the Lanark area this October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please continue the expansion,â&#x20AC;? said StormontDundas-South Glengary MP Guy Lauzon, among the visiting politicians on scene. North Dundas Mayor Eric Duncan remarked that the first question of prospective homebuyers to local real estate agents is: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Internet

connection like?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more important than roads,â&#x20AC;? local MPP Jim McDonell said of the availability of broadband. An initiative of the Eastern Ontario Wardensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Caucus that aims to deliver urban-style Internet service to most rural areas, the EORN program is largely funded by federal, provincial and municipal taxpayers but does include about $50-million in private-sector investment.

An unconventional way to clear land Lois Ann Baker Record Staff MORRISBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Local farmers Bill and Cindy Byker have chosen an unconventional way to clear out some land they bought this spring. Instead of burning the brush and trees, they have chosen to turn the debris into wood chips. The land, some 200 acres just west of Morrisburg along County Road 2, had once been used as agricultural land Bill Byker speculated, as the land contained fence lines. Byker chose the unique way to clear the land for many reasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have done some conventional clearing with burning in the past but here with the proximity to the town, County Road 2, Highway 401 and the rail and with the predominately westerly winds, we thought it was prudent to do it this way. For the safety of the community,â&#x20AC;? said Byker. Byker also stated he knew the contractor personally as he had been a neighbour. Kyle Spruit had recently started up Chip It Land Clearing and this was a good opportunity for both Byker and Spruit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew he would do a job and be good responsible,â&#x20AC;? said Byker. Lucky for Byker, he also was able to get a buyer for the wood chips who will be turning the chips into particle board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being able to sell the wood makes more sense economically,â&#x20AC;? said Byker. Byker said that each land clearing comes with its own dynamic and economics and economically, this case worked out reasonably well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might have been cheaper to do it the conventional way,â&#x20AC;? said Byker, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but then you have the burning and clean up. This way they clean it right to the ground and we can go in and tile drain it and work it right away.â&#x20AC;? The land had already been zoned for agricultural use and Byker said they have already contacted the township of their intent to turn he land back into

agricultural fields. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also been talking to the South Nation Conservation to make sure we are doing everything in compliance with the requirements,â&#x20AC;? he said. Byker said they were putting together a full drainage plan that will be reviewed by SNC and the township in case there were any alterations to ditches or the clean up to remain in compliance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The plan is to get it ready for planting next spring,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our aim is to get 100 per cent corn in there.â&#x20AC;? While the clearing has been going relatively well, Byker said the wet weather did hold them up a bit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It impacted the progress, but now we are making headway in getting things opened up and dryed out,â&#x20AC;? said Byker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is important too because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to mud the tile drainage or do damage to the soil with compaction,â&#x20AC;? he added. Byker said the past few weeks they have seen a lot of progress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was hard to see the progress before because of the fence lines and trees,â&#x20AC;? he added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like house-cleaning, sometimes it looks messier before it gets better.â&#x20AC;? While Byker was thinking about his neighbours not having to deal with the smoke from

burning, he also is keeping them in mind when it comes to the noise involved with chipping the wood. The location of the wood chipper was chosen with good neighouring in mind. It will be placed at the back of the land. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to put it back there mostly for the noise, but also most of the wood is back there,â&#x20AC;? said Byker. Byker added that when you work close to the community you have lived in for a number of years, there is a need to be sensitive to the people of the community and be responsible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even with the noise we

want to minimize it as much as possible,â&#x20AC;? said Byker. Byker said the decision to do it this way, with chipping, was because he wanted to do it right. He is looking at this as a longterm investment and wanted to make sure it was done properly. He was also confident in his choice of contractor saying their business had just started up and they have already done other projects with good results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is risk with every system. I just felt this is a nice system and I think he is getting into this business at the right time with a lot of people reclaiming farm land,â&#x20AC;? said Byker.

It has the honey indus tr y talking and asking questions about w hether the pes ticides used to coat corn seed could be to blame once the chemicals get into the pollen. A lvin Runnalls is a hobby beekeeper jus t outside of Winchester. He has been doing it for more than 35 years . Runnalls has heard the stories but isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure to w hat extent the relationship is between neonicotinoids and honey bees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am not really s ure at this point. I s us pect there is s ome truth to it. I have read s tudies that s ay yes neonicotinoids are to blame and others no. But there could be other for s ome caus es producers to lose their colony.â&#x20AC;? What makes Runnalls an interesting case is that not only is he a beekeeper, but he also has cash crops. He has 75 acres of corn and another 65 of soy. His five hives , roughly 400,000 bees , are completely surrounded by corn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bees arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too well this year, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if it is becaus e of the neonicotinoids. It could be in part to the things s uch as mites or even just the general way they are kept here.â&#x20AC;? Runnalls s aw his production drop last year down to just 100lbs of honey, from 700lbs the year before. H e is however, expecting a bit of an increase this year. With his cash crops, Runnalls s ays that he does s pray herbicides

early in the season, but that it happens before the bees are active s o it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a cause to why they have seemed different. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is puzzling I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the connection. They are not flying around the flowers as much.â&#x20AC;? While Runnalls is not ready to make the connection, other places have. The pesticides were given a two-year ban in Europe and in the United S tates , O regon implemented a ban just this pas t J uly w hile a report by the Environmental Protection Agency on their affect is finalized. S imilar ly, as a producer, that is w hat Runnalls would like to see more of. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see more research and studies done. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hate to have people jump to a conclusion based on a few studies.â&#x20AC;? While experts seem to think that there is a connection, Runnalls says from what he has seen, in his area that is surrounded by corn, other producers are doing just fine. Runnalls is a member of the O ntario Beekeepersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association. They recently released their position on the use of the pesticides. Their statement said that research with studies done in Q uebec and Europe confirm the pesticides, are the cause of acute bee poisoning. What they recommended w as that regulations reassess bee safety of all neonicotinoid pesticide products and restrict the use until more is known about how they aff ect honey bees and their potential risks. They also recommended beekeepers be reimburs ed by government for losses to

Alvin Runnalls is a hobby beekeeper just outside of Winchester. While he feels there may be truth to the reports that neonicotinoid pesticides are to blame for wiping out some colonies, he is not ready to make that conclusion, especially since Runnalls himself has close to 75-acres of corn and 65-acres of soy surrounding his five hives.

So much like Runnalls , the O BA believes there is a connection but wants to fully unders tand w hat and how it is created. The OBA later stated that they have the objective to have these pesticides removed and replaced with ones that will not harm bees and have the cas es of pois onings be f urther inves tigated by government specialists.

While Runnalls accepts the opinions of the industry it is hard for him to not be skeptical about what he reads. The fact that his field is so close to his hives and that he has not s een mas s ive deaths , like others in the industry are reporting, keep him skeptical. Still, as more research is done, more light will be shown on this issue and determine exactly w hat effect neonicotinoids have on bees and why they seem to be affecting s ome colonies more than others.

Lions introduce new owners as 2013-14 season approaches Darren Matte Sports Editor MORRISBURG— The Morrisburg Lions are hoping that some new blood on the ownership side of the organization can help inspire improved results on the ice. They recently announced that Rick Gilmer and Gary Brownlee would join the team as part owners. Last season was particularly difficult for the Lions as not only did they finish last in the St. Lawrence Division, 24 points out of a playoff spot, they also lost long-time owner Ron Casselman, who passed away in November of 2012. That prompted the remaining owners, Kevin Casselman, son of Ron and who currently serves as Lions general manager, and Dale Lewis, team trainer, equipment manager and community relations manager, to open up to additional owners. “The word got out quickly that we were looking for partners and it didn’t take long before the phone calls came in,” said Casselman. Casselman explained

that it was important the new owners share his and Lewis’ goal of keeping the team in the community and providing an entertaining product. “We had a lot of interest, but our objective from the beginning was to keep the team in the community and Rick and Gary shared that goal.” The new ownership structure is fairly simple in that all four partners have an equal 25 per cent share. The deal was finalized on May 1 and then approved by the league shortly after. “We are very excited to welcome both Gary and Rick to the Lions,” said Casselman. “With the passing of Ron, we wanted a new look and to infuse new blood and ideas into the team. They bring enthusiasm, those new ideas and ideology. They want to leave no stone unturned and bring new approaches to the fundraising side.” He added that there was no previous relationship with either of the two new owners. Casselman’s family has owned the team for more than three decades, since the 1980s. Lewis came on

as an owner in the late 90s. Both Casselman and Lewis will continue to fill their current roles with the team. In addition, Gilmer will act as assistant general manager and Brownlee will be vice president of business operations. “Both Rick and Gary want to be hands on. They want to learn everything from ticket sales to score keeping. They are going to be very active with the team. Rick has already been going to league meetings to learn the ways of the league,” Casselman explained. Even with the changes the team’s vision remain the same. “Our vision is to provide entertainment to our community and continue on the road of our previous founders. It is harder with the increases in costs, but we remain committed

to icing a competitive product,” added Casselman. The Lions have already taken steps to fulfilling their vision as they announced that coach Dan Frawley, a former NHLer, will be back for his second season behind the bench. The team also added Andrew Scott, a former coach with the Cornwall Colts, as an assistant. “We made a lot of changes at the trade deadline last year,” said Casselman. “We gave our younger players a chance to play and now have 24 eligible to return. We have been heavily recruiting this summer and are optimistic for the coming season.” The new looked Lions will open up their training camp on Aug. 18 in Spencerville.

Second Annual Mike Casselman Memorial Golf Tournament

The 14th annual Trevor Barkley Memorial Golf Tournament took place on Aug. 3 at the Cedar Glen Golf Course. In all, 90 Golfers took part in the event that will donate proceeds to the Winchester and District Memorial Hospital Foundation. Over the last 14 year, the tournament has raised more than $80,000, but organizers stress that the day is more about friends and family coming together. The organizing committee is made up of Kim Thompson, Kevin Williams, Mike and Carolyn Hutt. Above, Bob Crummy chips from just off the green, while below, Greg Thompson tees on the 10th hole.

Sr Habs and Jr Leafs cap BH seasons with titles WINCHESTER— Another season of the North Dundas Co-ed Ball Hockey League has come to an end and the 2013 champions were crowned on July 30 for the seniors and July 31 for the juniors. In the senior division, it was the Canadiens finishing off their season with the title and in the junior, the Leafs took home the top honours. Senior Canadiens 5 Hawks 3 (A Final) The Habs opened up the scoring with the only goal in the first period. Matt Laflamme set up James Mackie for the goal, 1-0 after one. The Hawks tied the game early in the second period when Dylan Marshall converted the Travis Marshall pass. The Habs would regain the lead with a couple of quick goals with just 10 minutes to go. First, Kyle Ross made it 21 with assists going to Mackie and Mitch Melenhorst. Just two minutes later, Ross scored again from Corey Ross and it was 3-1. The Hawks got to within one when Dylan Marshall scored his second, assisted by Travis Marshall and Brandon Vanloon. With 2:56 to go, Laflamme made it 4-1 when he scored from Mackie and Melenhorst. That goal would turn out to be the game winner. The teams traded goals once more with Laflamme scoring for the Habs and Dylan Marshall completing his hat trick for the Hawks, but the Habs held on to win 5-3 and are the 2013 senior champions. Sens 8 Rockets 7 SO (B Final) The B final turned out to be an exciting one with lots of offense and an eventual shootout to determine the winner. The teams traded goals twice in the first and it was all tied up at two at the

break. In the second, the Rockets scored a pair to lead 4-2. But the Sens came back and scored three in a row and the lead shifted to them 5-4. The Rockets then scored three straight and led 7-5. However, even with the clock running out, the Sens scored two in the final two minutes to tie the game at seven. That forced a shootout where the Sens completed the comeback to earn the B final with an 8-7 win. Justin Velthuis and Owen Guy each had a hat tick for the Sens and Devin Geertsma added the other. As for the Rockets, it was Marc Thurler with four goals and Spencer Carruthers with a hat trick. Leafs 9 Oilers 5 (C Final) The Leafs jumped out to a big lead in the first period. They were up 4-0 before the Oilers got on the board, but the Leafs added two more and led 6-1 after one. The Oilers attempted a comeback in the second and began with an early goal. However, each time they got one, the Leafs came right back and netted one of their own. The Leafs used their big first period to cruise to the 9-5 victory in the C Final. Bryden VanKessel led the way for the Leafs with four goals, Braden Findlay had three and Brodie Barkley two. As for the Oilers, Shawn Simms had a hat trick, Drew Cotnam and Cody Francis had the others. Junior Leafs 3 Rockets 2 (A Final) The Leafs got out to a firstperiod lead and never looked back in the junior A finals against the Rockets. They opened the scoring on an unassisted goal by Elyssa McLeod. McLeod then made it 2-0 with just over four minutes to go in the first. The Rockets did get one back

before the break when Jacob Foley scored with 2:30 to go. However before the break, Jared Wicks scored again for the Leafs who increased their lead to 3-1 at the intermission. In the second, the Rockets did get to within one with more than 18 minutes to play, on a goal by Cole Doornward. But they couldn’t find the tying goal and the Leafs took the championship 3-2. Oilers 3 Hawks 2 SO (B Final) Much like the B Final in the senior division, the B in the junior division needed a shootout to produce a winner. The Hawks took a 2-0 lead in the first period with a pair of goals coming from Ben Fingler. In the second, the Oilers began to come back. Jacob Zandbelt scored to cut the lead to 2-1. Then, with 1:16 to go, they tied the game and sent it to a shootout. In the shootout, Travis Ouellette was the only player to score for either team, but his goal completed the comeback for the Oilers who captured the B title with a 3-2 win. Sens 11 Habs 0 (C Final) The C Final was all Sens. They opened up a 4-0 lead in the first period and they continued to fill the net in the second. They added seven goals in the second period to win the C Final 11-0. The Sens goal scorers were: Ethan Guy who had five goals, Justin Dagenais who also netted five and Chase Holmes who had the other. Hunter Van Breugel picked up the shutout in the win. With that, the hardware has been handed out and another season is in the books. Some players will be moving on and other will jump from junior to the senior division. Still, it should be interesting to see how the league evolves next season.

Clair wins round two of Canadian Nationals at CMS Cornwall— Cornwall Motor Speedway presented round two of the Canadian Nationals with a 100-lap Modified feature race, on Aug. 4, along with Sportsman, Pro-Stock and Mini-Stock. Chris Raabe was the initial leader in second round of the Canadian Nationals Series. Two cautions slowed the pace in the first 18 laps as Raabe stayed first with Mario Clair battling for third with Tim O’Brien. Clair took third in heavy traffic on lap 25. As the leaders were involved with slower cars, Boisvert was on the back bumper of Raabe with 70 laps to go. Raabe got a right rear tire flat and lost the lead as caution was back out on lap 38. Boisvert was the new leader followed by Clair. On the restart, Brian McDonald moved into third place as the feature got to the halfway point. Michel Chicoine and

Laurent Ladouceur got together in turn four and Ladouceur had a nasty flip bringing the red on lap 55. When the racing resumed, the top three remained the same as Luke Whitteker and Bernard completed the top five. Clair used slower cars to pass Boisvert for the lead on lap 68, but Boisvert charged back as traffic played a factor, Carey Terrance rolled over in turn one and red was out on lap 73. On the restart, Boisvert and Clair got together sending Boisvert into the wall and yellow was out on lap 75. Clair led the way as Raabe, who charged back to sixth, caused a third red flag as he flipped in turn one, with only a dozen laps left. Clair led the final circuits to capture his first win of 2013 over Whitteker, Brian McDonald Bernard and Joel Doiron. In the 20-lap Pro-Stock feature, Ryan Stabler was the early leader but started to fade

with five laps completed as Roch Aubin got the lead. A late restart created a good battle between Aubin and Dave Bissonnette as they were racing side by side, Bissonnette finally had the edge to capture his second win of the season over Aubin, Jocelyn Roy, Charles-David Beauchamp and Stephane Lebrun . The 20-lap Sportsman Feature saw Corey Wheeler grab the lead from Ricky Thompson on lap 13 and never look back to capture his first win of 2013. Thompson finished second, Corey Winters was third, Louie Jackson Jr. and Mitch Primeau rounding out the top five. In the 12-lap Mini-Stock Feature race, Scott Mcgill won his first feature of his career. Danny Lefebvre, Marc Reggentin, Justin Desrosiers and Randy Tremblay completed the top five.

Setting new track record

Cornwall’s own Brian “Slim” MacDonald set a new track record for the Modified class on Aug. 4 at the Cornwall Motor Speedway. During his heat race to qualify for the second event of the Canadian Nationals Series, the driver of the #151kb Troyer machine, turned the 1/4 mile clay oval in a fabulous 12.772 seconds. This outstanding performance allowed the veteran driver to erase a seven-year old track record posted at the time by Steve Payne with a Big Block modified, while MacDonald did it with his Small Block engine. In the 100-lap feature, Brian MacDonald ran with the leaders and finished third behind Mario Clair and Luke Whitteker. Unofficially MacDonald is the new points leader in the Canadians Nationals Series for 358 Modifieds. S. Lauwers photo

On July 31, Greeley’s Joey Evans clinched his first ever feature win at Capital Speedway in Ottawa. He led the 12-lap final race from the green to the checkered flag. It was a huge relief for the leader when the flagman showed the checkered flags as he knew that his rear right tire was slowly going down, that his brakes were no longer effective and that the car in second was all over his rear bumper. But the talented pilot managed to nose his closest rival at the finish line. All that counts for a racer is to be the leader of the the final lap and that was Evans on this night. S. Lauwers photo

Successful week for North Dundas in OCSL CHESTERVILLE— It was a largely successful week for North Dundas United teams in the Ottawa Carleton Soccer League. Three teams (Sonics, Warriors and OT5) scored victories, while the WR4 team picked up a point with a draw. It was only the MR6 who didn’t grab any points, losing for only the second time this season.

They were back in action last night, Aug. 6 as they hosted the Ottawa Raiders and next week, Aug. 13 they are in Ottawa to face the Golden Seals. OT5 The North Dundas OT5 team is heating up at the right time. After failing to score a win in their first eight games of the season, the OT5s now find themselves with back-to-back after defeating wins Sporting Mexico 3-1 on Aug. 2. Donald Vreman, Hugh Grant and Tony Wouters all found the net in the win. This week, North

Dundas is in Ottawa to take on the White Eagles on Aug. 9.

This week they will look to regain their winning form when they play Lynwood Golden boots in Ottawa on Aug. 7.

Golfing for the Cure at Cedar Glen

More than 80 players took part Cedar Glen’s 5th Annual Golf for the Cure tournament on July 30, including this team (from left): Diane Lomberg of Cornwall, and Long Sault residents Elise Muir, Colette Wrinn and Aurelie Wall. A fundraiser for breast cancer research, through the local chapter of the Canadian Cancer Society, the event was expected to raise $4,000 to $5,000 this year, on top of the $20,000 combined total of years’ past. The nine-hole tournament included special contests on each green — including ‘closest to the bra’ — and concluded with a silent auction and dinner at the clubhouse.

Tennis continues to swing at the RCSC RUSSELLâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Russell Community and Sport Club (RCSC) will be wrapping up another successful summer of tennis camps and programs next week; a summer of tennis that started with the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first after-school program that began on May 6.

The Casselview Golf and Country Club celebrated 30 years on Aug. 1 with a special anniversary tournament. The tournament received a great turnout, even though they battled rain for portions of the day. In all, 200 golfers took part in the event that featured 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. shotgun starts. Claude and Daniel Leclair currently own the course. It began as a nine-hole course, but was extended to 18 in 1988. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got great support for the event even though we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really push it. It is great to see,â&#x20AC;? said Claude. The brothers say that their next goal for the course is to create a signature hole on hole 14. They plan to have it ready or the 2016 season. Here they stand with original owner Pierrette Lafleche, Nation Mayor Francois St. Amour and Counties Warden RenĂŠ Berthiaume.

Country music festival raises funds for hospital GREELY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The sixth Annual Greely Legion Country Music Festival, held at the Greely Legion Branch 628 the week of July 22, raised $3,000 for the Winchester District Hospital Memorial Foundation (WDMHF). The event was an opportunity for campers and country music followers to gather at the Legion grounds to enjoy both local and national talent. Country Music Festival and Jamboree Organizing Committee member Linda Wyman stated that camper numbers increased this year and that the purchasing of a permanent steel roof over the outdoor stage gave some relief from the elements for musicians. "We also have a paved dance floor in front of the stage, so that people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get tripped up trying to dance in the grass.â&#x20AC;? WDMH Foundation

Board Chair, Arnold Scheerder, was an attendee for the second year noted that everyone seemed to have a great time, "This event is a perfect example of how some hard work and a common interest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like country music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can, in turn, benefit thousands, like patients and their families, who rely on quality care with a smile at WDMH.â&#x20AC;? Scheerder continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ongoing support from the Royal Canadian Legion is especially touching at our Foundation, as we honour and value the work of our veterans and remember their sacrifice throughout the year every time we say our full name as the Winchester District Memorial Hospital. The hard work of our Legion members at this event and year-round makes such an impact in our region. Thank you to everyone involved.â&#x20AC;? The festival also

fundraises for the Greely RCL, as members and volunteers served breakfast on both July 27 and July 28, as well as dinner on July 27, and operated a canteen throughout the week-long event. This is not the first of fund-raising proceeds to be donated to the WDMHF by the Greely Legion. Volunteers have been organizing poppy fund collections, music festivals and raffle draws to benefit the WDMHF in supporting the hospital for over ten years. Through these efforts, this dedicated group of volunteers and veterans has raised over $30,000 since 2002. supporting the By WDMH Foundation, the Legion hopes to keep the hospital and its staff knowledgeable and equipped in its drive to become a Centre of Excellence in Rural Health and Education.

Curd factory rises up to celebrate 20th anniversary ST-ALBERTâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Curd Festival, presented by Fromagerie St-Albert in collaboration with the Dairy Farmers of Canada, is pleased to celebrate its 20th edition from Aug. 1418. The Festival has come a long way over the past 20 years. It began as a local gettogether to thank the cheese factoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clients but has grown into a gigantic regional event. The event in will start on Aug. 14, with an exciting line-up for festival-goers of all ages under the Desjardins Big Top.  Jean-François Mercier with his acerbic and insightful brand of humour, and mesmerizing magician

Alain Choquette with his top acts, will open the celebration that evening. On Aug. 16, the highly popular Franco-Ontarian group Swing will have visitors clapping their hands and stomping their feet, while the legendary Cayouche will welcome festival-goers to his Western world with echoes of Johnny Cash and Willie Lamothe. On Aug. 17, Le Scone will open the evening with the legendary Robert Charlebois, who this year is celebrating 50 years as a performer. During the afternoon of Aug. 18, visitors will get to watch the  Chiclettes  in action: Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s TOP



female singing trio who won two Trilles Or in 2013 in the best band and discoveries categories.  Maxime Carrière,  Damien Maze and the Humbeckers, and  Le Scone  will provide the entertainment for the first part of the evening.  To mark the 20th anniversary of the Curd Festival, organizers decided to stage a special interlude for visitors. They turned to the expertise of the wellknown  Royal Pyrotechnie company for a fireworks show. Expect a dazzling spectacle right after Robert Charleboisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; performance on Aug. 17. In addition to the entertainment acts, the festival

will feature: a supergiant maze, the inter-village challenge, tasters market, cooking demonstrations, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities, antique tractors, bingo, BBQ, wine and cheese, breakfast fundraiser, volleyball tournament, petting zoo and Go Karts. St. Albert Store Manager JosĂŠe Theoret says that the co-op is mainly concerned with the wine and cheese this year as they have contracted out the entertainment to a promotions company. Theoret admits that their have been challenges due to the fact that the cheese is current not being produced in St. Albert.

When did the environment and the harm being done to it become the topic of the day in church services? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to admit Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve missed a few lately â&#x20AC;&#x201C; services, that is â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure all sects arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t giving equal billing to impending environmental disaster. But that was certainly the theme at the annual outdoor, non-denominational  â&#x20AC;&#x153;Service of Worshipâ&#x20AC;? at the Lombardy Fair last Sunday. The faithful gathered under the trees for some soothing hymns, some gentle observationsâ&#x20AC;Ś and a blistering blast on the state of the environment that carried through from the call to worship to the final prayer of confession. It was all environmental degradation all the time!   Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt environmental issues are on the collective public mind like never before. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I discussed last week with Dell Hallett at a party celebrating his retirement after 24 years as general manager of the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority. The provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 36 CAs only began to be taken seriously by municipal politicians who sit on their boards of directors and by the provincial government that legislated them into existence in 1946 after the public made it clear the environment was one of the most pressing issues on the agenda. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when things started to change. During Hallettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time at the helm, RVCA and its 20 staff moved from overseeing the Rideau watershed out of a collection of drafty historic buildings in downtown Manotick to a state-of-the art, $6-million headquarters on the villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outskirts housing 65 staff. No longer is RVCA seen as an impediment to development, a thorn in the side of elected representatives. Now

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viewed as a facilitator of environmentally responsible development, an organization that vote conscious municipal representatives are proud to be part of. But the Lombardy service wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the time for good news about the environment. It was time to call down the wrath of God on environmental sinners and to plead for forgiveness. I happened to be sitting on one of the picnic tables doubling as a pew and my drowsy, early morning reverie was shattered by the intensity of the service. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what I expected at the Lombardy Fair on a tranquil Sunday morning, especially after being softened up by the Sandhill Trio that performed at the much more subdued service last year. Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a guy just grab a few winks under the trees? I drifted back to the last service, held that time in the main agricultural hall. It was a dry, dismal summer, and it almost seemed like a miracle might be in the making after the Sandhill Trio opened with the hymn â&#x20AC;&#x153;There Shall be Showers of Blessing.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Showers of blessing we need, mercy drops around us are falling, but for the showers we plead,â&#x20AC;? the trio sang. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There shall be showers of blessing, precious reviving again, over the hills and the valleys, sound of abundance of rain.â&#x20AC;? It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rain just then. Â But not much later, the heavens opened dramatically and swamped the fairgrounds and the entire region with a brief but welcome downpour, enough to keep the dust settled for a little while and give the crops a merciful drink. I was snapped back to the latest Lombardy Fair service: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why do we desecrate the land? Why do we pump

impurities into the air? Why do we fill the rivers and seas with filth?â&#x20AC;? I sat up and took notice. Rev. Katherine Powell was just winding up: â&#x20AC;&#x153;God gave us Edenâ&#x20AC;Ś we made hell on earth. Now let us return to the Lord and obey Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word. Then we shall inherit Eden once more.â&#x20AC;? There was more. By this time, I was cringing in my makeshift pew, feeling guilty for not recycling to the max and for leaving lights on when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really needed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Creator God, you asked the first people to care for the earth, yet we throw garbage on the ground, we spray our crops with harmful pesticides. At times, we do not care for the animals, birds, insects, fish and other people with whom we share this planet. Forgive us and call us to have new respect for the earth and all that walks upon it.â&#x20AC;? I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help uttering a quiet Amen. As so many groups are doing these days in matters of the environment, the service looked to First Nations for inspiration, quoting from a traditional prayer: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Make my hands respect the things you have made, and my ears sharp to hear your voice. Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.â&#x20AC;? Will there be another miracle? Dale Hallett might say one is in the works, unfolding in small increments as more and more of us slowly see the error of our environmental ways.

Get your fill of garlic in Perth PERTH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The idea of staging a garlic festival germinated from a small group of individuals in 1997 and has become one of eastern Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most anticipated annual community festivals. Held every August, the Perth Garlic Festival is a celebration to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stinking roseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The warm August air of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prettiest town is scented with the pungent aroma of garlic while thousands of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;garlic headsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; revel in the many attributes of this wonderful herb. More than 70 garlic

craft and food vendors will be on hand, as well as cooking demos, loads of garlic flavoured foods and fresh garlic for sale. Hosted by the Lions Club of Perth, the Perth Garlic Festival is volunteer-driven with individuals contributing many hours to ensure the festival is a success and to date has raised more than $200,000 for community initiatives supported by the Lions Club of Perth.

Tragedy at Highland Games MAXVILLEâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; Even though it was a weekend filled with many memorable moments, the Glengarry Highland Games is mourning a loss. Organizers, with regret, had to inform visitors and the public that Bruce Jones, age 62, a piper with the Forest City Celtic Pipe Band from London,

Ontario collapsed and died during the afternoon of Aug. 3 at the Glengarry Highland Games. His death was announced during the massed bands and a moment's silence was observed by the audience and the 1500 pipers and drummers assembled for the massed bands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Games is deeply saddened
