Certified Forest Owners contribute $5,000 to watershed woodlot service AVONMORE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Certified Forest Owners (CFO) are contributing $5,000 towards expanding the local watershed authorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Woodlot Advisory Service across the 4,200 square-km jurisdiction of South Nation Conservation (SNC). The non-profit entityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement occurred on the Avonmore property of George Velema, a tri-county CFO director and a member of SNCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forestry committee. A former Domtar Cornwall executive, Velema is a long-time supporter of reforestation in the watershed. A mixture of coniferous and deciduous trees, Velemaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100-acre bush lot â&#x20AC;&#x201D; located down the road from his Christmas-tree farm â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was one of the first certified forests in the United Counties. In addition to Velema, the event was officiated by the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president Elaine

Kennedy, and by Bill Smirle, chairman of SNC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The contribution from the certified forest owners is a strong show of support for the WAS, a clear indication this important group backs our efforts,â&#x20AC;? said Josee Brizard, Team Lead, SNC Forest Resources. SDG CFO is a not-forprofit organization promoting sustainable, longterm forest management practices through third party certification. Governed by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification is a voluntary market-based system guaranteeing that wood and paper products come from responsibly maintained woodlots. The FSC objective is to ensure that forests are managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable way. SNC and CFO signed a Memorandum of Understanding last April to partner in forestry programs

such as the Woodlot Advisory Service (WAS) that provides assistance to property owners with a minimum of five acres of forest. WAS offers landowners site evaluations, suggests management options, as well as contacts and programs intended to enhance woodlot potential. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CFO objectives are the same as SNCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s,â&#x20AC;? Brizard noted, adding that the authority manages 20,000 acres of forest across a large part of Eastern Ontario. SNC and its partners plant thousands of trees every year to replace ones lost and to expand the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forest cover. SNC past president Lawrence Levere expressed hope that the current bushclearing trend amounted to an economic bubble that would â&#x20AC;&#x153;soon come to an end.â&#x20AC;? Founded several years ago, the SD&G CFO is funded by member contributions, according to Kennedy.

Three hundred people turned out for an event celebrating the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100th anniversary in 2008. Though it has its roots as a general store in what was a dry town, the operation today features an

LCBO Agency Store as well. The rambling brick building for years hosted a bank, while the upstairs still has an intact fraternal hall â&#x20AC;&#x201D; now defunct â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that is very much like a time capsule.

WDMH Foundation announces record Wish Tree haul; updates bed initiative SOUTH MOUNTAIN — The Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation’s 16th Annual Christmas Wish Tree program reaped a 30 per cent boost in gifts over the previous year, supporters heard at the organization’s ‘Code Red’ breakfast on Mon., Feb. 3. Six hundred and seventy “wishes” were made in honour of loved ones and hospital staff — filling every vertical inch of the towering tree that stands in the WDMH Lobby every Christmas season. However, there was an actual total of 888 gifts worth $111,170. “Without the strong and much appreciated support from our donors, the highest priority needs at WDMH would be impossible to meet every year,” said the WDMH Foundation Board Chair, Arnold Scheerder, “much of that support is received through this annual program, because it gives the community a chance to remember and honour those that have changed their lives for the better, and make a difference at the same time. My thanks, on

This year ’s sponsors gave a total of $22,500, which meant $10,000 more in matching funds available to donors, a fact cited as a significant contributing factor for the increase in funds raised. The breakfast event, held inside the Mountain Township Agricultural Society Hall, also featured readings of testimonials by WDMH patients extolling the excellent care received at the institution. Foundation Executive Director Troy Cross also delivered a report on an ongoing campaign — now nearly complete — to replace 30 beds at the hospital with state-of-the-art units featuring power recliners and built-in scales. The $150,000 effort has so far raised $120,000 and purchased 24 beds. “We’ve only got six left to purchase,” said Cross. Residents can soon expect to receive a mailout highlighting the effort to raise the remaining $30,000. The beds are destined for the medicalsurgical rooms as well as some complex continuing care cases, according to Cross. An initial of five beds of the same type debuted when the multi-million-dollar hospital overhaul concluded in 2009. That brings the planned total complement of ultra-modern beds to 35.

Op/Ed Food safety boogeyman The organic movement was served a toxic dish recently when the media disclosed a study conducted by the CFIA which suggests organic foods contain high levels of pesticides. The report claimed that half of a sample of organic products randomly tested had traces of pesticides. To explain why results were not disseminated when the study was completed more than a year ago, the CFIA told the media that none of the test results posed a health risk as farming practices complied with Canadianapproved standards.  In this era of skepticism, mistrust, and scandals, it makes one wonder why the CFIA allowed the media to unveil the information before it did in its role as our country’s premiere risk communicator. Basically, the CFIA was outright undermined by a study they actually conducted themselves which made the story quite surreal. The way that these findings were made public

should be a cause for concern for organic farmers in Canada. Many Canadians were surprised by the findings and were hard-pressed to find clear answers from regulators. Some organic products are double, even triple the average price of their conventional counterparts. As an environmentally-focused niche market which offers an alternative production system for certain farmers, the findings revealed are not consistent with what the industry is trying to achieve.   In a sense, the organic movement is now paying the price for its pesticidefree campaign. For years, studies have suggested that it is nearly impossible to find organic produce, fruits, or vegetables at retail with zero pesticide residues unless, of course, production distribution and retail chains operate in complete isolation from conventional supply streams. Such an approach would likely increase the prices of products which are already expensive enough and most organic experts would concur. Organic production allows the use of natural pesticides only. From an ecological standpoint, it makes the organic case much more compelling than

Letters To The Editor Welcome to Fargo County To Editor: Why do farmers insist on cutting all trees along the roads? This is not Fargo country.  Driving around our roads has become so dangerous in winter and many cars have ended up in the ditch!  Every bare field creates snow drifts in windy conditions, and long patches of road end up covered in snow, creating dangerous white knuckle driving.  Even on sunny days, the

heavy drifting snow means sending the municipal snow plows on the roads, which costs money to tax payers. I would like to ask the cash croppers to leave a buffer zone of trees and brush along our roads when possible. It would improve our driving conditions in winter; it would beautify our county roads in summer and would provide shelter and food for birds and small animals.  In other words, it would make the world a better place.

conventional farming. However, agriculture has seen some dramatic changes in Canada and elsewhere in the last decade. Farming is now much wiser and more frugal when using chemicals in the field. Sound practices have led to the elimination of many problematic, old pesticides. This is something we need to recognize more often. Nonetheless, consumers are often oblivious of how our organic operations become certified. The certification process for any commodity in Canada is very comprehensive and rigorous, but our climate makes our organic industry much less efficient than in other countries. In fact, more than 80% of all organic food products purchased by consumers in Canada are imported, so certification processes are complex, to say the least. This means reviews and access to proper data will remain a challenge for quite some time,

particularly when dealing with emerging countries where regulatory oversight is lacking. The CFIA, in partnership with the domestic organic industry, should commit to expanding the scope of their surveillance of and compliance guidance with our trading partners. Consumers ought to continue to buy organics for reasons they feel strongly

Sharkey exhibit begins this month Carolyn Thompson Goddard Record Contributor CHESTERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Eileen Sharkey was a true Renaissance woman, for not only did she serve her country as a WREN in World War II, marry and raise a fine family, be an active member of her community, church and a professional hair stylist, Sharkey was an accomplished artist. According to her daughter, Brenda Fraser of Chesterville she painted at least a thousand paintings between 1968 and 2005. Sharkey painted in almost every medium available including pastels, oil, charcoal, pen and ink, as well as sculptures and created her own decorated plates from clay. While she created abstract, still life and portraits, according to Fraser â&#x20AC;&#x153;she loved her flowers, trees and old barns especially. â&#x20AC;&#x153; This self-taught artist found her inspiration in the people and buildings of Chesterville, the natural landscape of the area and also produced a number of paintings of locations around Upper Canada Village near Morrisburg. Fraser spoke proudly of the talent, resilience and strength of her mother especially when describing how after contracting macular degeneration, which greatly affected her ability to see, Sharkey continued to draw. After her sight began to deteriorate, her art began to develop blurring of the soft edges and a more abstract nature. Prior to Sharkeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death seven years ago, family members were provided with the

Eileen Sharkey opportunity to choose what art they would like to have as a remembrance of her. Since that time much of her work has been in storage at the family home and Fraser mentioned how a friend told her that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eileen always liked the sun and the light â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so her paintings should be out where people can see them.â&#x20AC;? This comment was an impetus to her decision to speak with local artist, Ron LeClair and The Gathering House about having an exhibition of her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collected works. Plans are now being formulated to hold an exhibition of about 100 of Sharkeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art pieces beginning in midFebruary at The Gathering House. The exhibition will be held over a few months with the works being changed periodically. Fraser says that some of the works of art will be offered for sale, with the proceeds going to The Gathering House and assistance to young artists. She finished her conversation with The Record by providing an invitation to people near and far to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please come and enjoy the many facets of Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic talentsâ&#x20AC;?.

Lone opponent in farm community opposes terminal Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff MORRISBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A retired local farm leader with roots in the federal public service has found himself odd man out among his Dundas County confreres over a controversial proposed waterfront grain terminal facility west of Morrisburg. Former beef producer and retired Agriculture Canada public servant Ron Wilson opposes the planned Ontario Grain Terminals (OGT) project on Lakeshore Drive, located a few kilometres from his retirement home on Coyle Drive in the Municipality of South Dundas. He was the lone voice of opposition to identical resolutions endorsing the project that otherwise easily garnered crowd support at back-to-back meetings of the Dundas Soil & Crop Improvement Association (DSCIA) and the Dundas Federation of Agriculture (DFA) in December. But he insists his personal proximity to the proposed site does not drive his point of view, saying the project wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be visible from his house anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not particularly concerned about location,â&#x20AC;? says Wilson, who explains his stand is solely based on respect for the law. More specifically, he insists the project does not comply with the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current zoning bylaw because â&#x20AC;&#x153;elevatorâ&#x20AC;? is not, according to Wilson, among the prescribed developments permitted at the site, though the bylaw would allow a â&#x20AC;&#x153;warehouseâ&#x20AC;? of up to 15 metres in height. The OGT elevator proposal calls for an initial pair of storage bins nearly 30 metres high, raising the ire of petitioning residents of Lakeshore Drive led by Chris Rowntree. But had the bylaw included the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;elevator,â&#x20AC;? Wilson would have advised the Rowntree complainers â&#x20AC;&#x153;too bad, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Ron Wilson

Marty Derks

approved,    itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in  the bylaw.â&#x20AC;?    That not being the case,  he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If  we as     agriculture   want one there,    say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I support  we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s illegal.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; We say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like what the bylaw says, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s try to change the bylaw, and then if somebody wants to build an elevator, let them go ahead with the project â&#x20AC;&#x201D; any more than we recommend that trucks loaded with grain or salt should drive at 115 km/h down the highway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m saying we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being doing this other thing here â&#x20AC;Ś If we vote in favour of it, it means we know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supporting something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not permitted by the bylaw.â&#x20AC;? However, he says that local farmers seem uninterested in learning about the legal constraints of the site. He also expresses skepticism at the developerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assurances that a dryer wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be part of the development and suggests itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inevitable such equipment would be installed after the bins go up, perhaps after a year or two. It otherwise makes no sense to expect corn producers to deliver their crops for drying at places like Johnstown, only to load back up and head to Morrisburg, he argues. Wilson briefly voiced his concerns at the Dec. 4 DSCIA meeting in Chesterville, prior to passage of the resolution expressing support for more grain storage capacity in Dundas County â&#x20AC;&#x153;such as the

Morrisburg project.â&#x20AC;? Later that evening, Wilson says, the chair cut him off as he spoke on the same motion at the DFA meeting in the same village. His proposed amendment, excising the reference to the Morrisburg project, was also defeated at the DFA, he says. The contention has pitted Wilson against an up-andcoming younger generation of aggressive agricultural leaders typified by Marty

Derks, vice-president of the DFA, and fellow director Warren Schneckenburger, who also serves as new president of the DSCIA. Derks dismisses Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stance because of his address. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biased,â&#x20AC;? says Derks, also noting that Wilson â&#x20AC;&#x153;no longer earns an income from farmingâ&#x20AC;? and is an associate member of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture. Supporting the Morrisburg site only makes sense, argues Derks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the main drag, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the centre of the heart of farming, right? So why not have it at the centre of the heart of farming?â&#x20AC;? he says. Pointing to the siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history as a port for shipments of salt and bulk oil, he observes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a terminal. So whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changed other than the fact itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be used finally?â&#x20AC;? He asserts that farmers in the region require more avenues to bring their crops to market, comparing it to added seats on a bus. Continued on page 16

Vintage sled event raises $2,400 for rare condition FINCH — Two-cycle and Wankel rotary engines cackled in the bone-chilling cold outside the Finch Arena Jan. 26, all revved up for a good cause. All told, 45 participating machines from around Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec helped the second annual vintage snowmobile show raise $2,400 for Pulmonary Hypertension Canada. On hand with his circa1970s motorcycle-like “Snorunner” manufactured by Chrysler, event organizer Sean Mullin suffers from the rare disease that compromises breathing capacity. Mullin said the show will continue as a regular event after two years of trial success. There aren’t many shows specializing in antique sleds, he explained, and organizers believe there’s opportunity to grow the attraction in North Stormont. Located right on the trail system in Finch, this year’s event also drew around 100 riders on newer sleds. Organizers hope to capitalize on that fact next year by inviting dealers to set up displays of the latest snow machines. The Finch and District Lions Club also raised funds that morning with a breakfast

Ontario AAS Service Diploma recipients â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stormont

Bill Zandbelt holds the three-chain piece he created from one piece of wood, at the NorDun Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Support Centre on Fri., Jan 31.

Volunteers of over 20 years with the Stormont County Fair, Gloria and Albert Milley were recognized Jan. 18 for their work with the annual event in Newington. At the Stormont County Agricultural Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting, the couple received the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies Agricultural Service Diploma. Usually haunting the flower area during the late-summer fair, the Milleys were also commended for many hours spent in the hospitality tent conversing with visitors and handing out chocolate milk and curds. The fair also serves as a family get-together for the Milleys.

Regional Contact calls on Zandbelt WINCHESTER- William (Bill) Zandbelt immigrated to Canada from Holland In 1960 and moved to Vernon in 1974. He was employed as a farm machine mechanic for 26 years and at the age of 83 he speaks passionately about his work. Zandbelt worked at the Metcalfe Service Centre for 20 years, with a stint at Shortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Massey Ferguson dealership in Chesterville, and he finished his career at the Museum of Science and Technology in Ottawa. He retired in 1990 and wanted something new to work at, so he began carving wood. He had never tried the hobby before but it came naturally, and he found a new passion. On Fri. Jan. 31, his work was displayed at the Nor-Dun Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Support Centre in Winchester where he had some 50 pieces â&#x20AC;&#x201D; only about a quarter of his production. Residents marvelled at the creations, which were simply just â&#x20AC;&#x153;amazing.â&#x20AC;? He had a lot of machinery (his other passion) such as combines, tractors, antique cars, trucks, and a sawmill, all completely functional. He was very enthused about his chains;one piece had three separate chains all linked together made from one piece of wood. Zandbelt says he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it full time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to take lunch breaks and a nap during the day!â&#x20AC;? It takes about a month and a half to complete most of his creations. He is scheduled today Wed., Feb. 5, to have a sit-down with CTV Regional Contact host Joel Haslam for a future airing.

Alexandria Glens @ Hawks Feb. 7 at 8:15 p.m. FAX: 613-448-3260

Hawks name new coach, scramble for playoff berth

Morrisburg Lions’ Drew Veenstra beat Casselman Vikings’ goaltender Gianmarco De Meis on this partial breakaway on Thurs. Jan. 30 at the Brisson Complex in Casselman, while Vikings defender Kevin Giroux tries to poke the puck away. The Vikings prevailed in this one 4-2. Jeff Moore photo

Vikings just keep on rolling along Jeff Moore Record Staff The Casselman Vikings are comfortably in a playoff spot in the St. Lawrence Division of EOJHL, going into the weekend; the story with them was their health. The Vikings had nine players out with injury or illness at game time on Thur. Jan. 30.They only had one game this weekend and has a 22point lead on the second place Char-Lan Rebels. They will face the fourth seed, which has yet to be determined, mathematically it could be the Winchester

Hawks, Alexandria Glens or the Akwesasne Wolves. Vikings 4 - Lions 2 CASSELMANThe Vikings went into the game on Thurs., Jan. 30 with nine regulars out of the line up, dressing only three regular defencemen, moving a forward back to the point. Meanwhile the Lions have been on a hot streak of late winning 3 of their last 5. The Vikings drew first blood on the power play when Maxime Choquette tipped a Mark Hough shot from the point home; also drawing an assist was Mitch Allen at

8:39 of the first period. Lions’ Isaac Brownlee got one to go unassisted to tie the game at one. The game remained tied going into the second but just 1:30 into the second period Drew Veenstra, unassisted, gave the Lions the lead. With 4:11 remaining on the clock the Vikings tied it up with Choquette netting his second of the game from Devin Desnoyers. The score was tied at 2 after 2, but the Vikings Taylor Widemaier scored his league leading 38th goal from Desnoyers and Choquette to give them

the 3-2 lead. The game remained tied until Choquette completed the hat trick with an unassisted empty net goal. The Vikings goalie Gianmarco De Meis stopped 18 shots for the win, while Brandon Chilton made 41 saves for the loss. This week The Vikings travel to Winchester tonight Wed., Feb. 5 at 8:30 p.m.; then they are at home on Thurs., Feb. 6 versus the Char-Lan Rebels at 7:30, and then they travel to Alexandria for a tilt with the Glens on Sat., Feb. 8 at 8:00 p.m.

Rough weekend for Lions Lose to Vikes, drop 8-3 decision to Rebels Jeff Moore Record Staff The Lions had a tough go this weekend as they were in Casselman on Thurs., Jan. 30. Although they played well and skated with the Vikings it wasn’t enough as the Vikes dumped them 4-2. Then they travelled to Williamstown to take on the Rebels on Sat. Feb. 1, and came up short again, this time losing 8-3. Rebels 8 - Lions 3 WILLIAMSTOWNThe Morrisburg Lions were in Williamstown to face the Char-Lan

Rebels on Sat. Feb. 1, to try to play spoilers. The Rebels needed a couple of points to keep ahead of the Winchester Hawks for second place in the EOJHL’s St. Lawrence Division. In the first period the Rebels scored the first two goals, the first coming 18 seconds, and 4:20, to stun the Lions who have been playing very tight hockey lately. The Lions closed the gap when Justin Rutley netted one from William White and Michael Paquette. The Rebels’ Ramsey Wheeler continued his hot hand as he scored two back to back, the first at 16:55 and the second at 19:38 to post a 4-1 lead. The Lions responded as Liam

Morrow put one away with six seconds to go in the frame, from Cole Blanchard and Isaac Brownlee going into the dressing room. In the second the Rebels potted three more to lead 7-2, but Lions got one back at 2:04 by Curtis Evans, assisted by Drew Veenstra and Andrew Jarvis. In the third period the Rebels put the game away at 5:55, and took the two much needed points, to hang on to second place. This week The Lions play back-to-back games against Akwesasne Wolves; first they travel to Akwesasne on Sat., Feb. 8, at 7:00 p.m., then they play them again in Morrisburg Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m.

Jeff Moore Record Staff The Winchester Hawks entered the weekend with their playoff future uncertain. On Thurs., Jan. 30 the Hawks management announced they were welcoming a new coach to help out with the team, but both co-coaches Lenard McLean and Robyn Saddler resigned at the news. The Hawks new coach is Scott Cowie, who played for the Peterborough Petes of the OHL from 2004-2007, then moved to the Ottawa 67s from 07-08, and his overage year with the Nepean Raiders in 08-09. He was an assistant coach with the Nepean Raiders for the past two years. Cowie along with GM Craig Smith are now sharing the duties of coaching the team. The Hawks desperately needed points going into the weekend, after losing three games last week. They could feel a playoff spot slipping away. With a couple more losses the Hawks could fall out of the playoff picture but managed to squeak by the Char-Lan Rebels with a dramatic finish Fri., Jan. 31. The Akwesasne Wolves were in the same boat on Sat., Feb. 1 when the Hawks paid them a visit; the Hawks won their second of the weekend, making it tough for the Wolves to make the playoffs. This is the final week of league games, and the playoffs will begin next week. Hawks 4 - Wolves 3 AKWESASNE- On Sat., Feb. 1, the Hawks were on the island, at the Anowarako:wa Arena to take on the Akwesasne Wolves. The Hawks were looking to continue the momentum from the previous night as they got on the board early with Kyle McDougall tapping one home from Luke Scott and Patrick Morin, just 3:05 into the first period. Midway through the first the Wolves tied it on the power play, but Bryden Van Kessel, who was moved to the forward position, scored at 11:48, from Wyatt Coghill and Josh Stubbings. Before the period wound down the Wolves tied it up at two going into the second. The Wolves were the only team that found twine in the second period at 9:33, taking a 3-2 lead heading for the third period. Morin added to his great weekend as he scored two more, the first just 19 seconds in, from Austin Rothe to knot the affair at three. His second goal came at 5:15 when Coghill and Jordan Brunet set him up. The Wolves struggled to get the equalizer as they pulled their goal tender for the extra attacker but the Hawks didn’t give them anything, and hung on for the win. Morin ended the weekend with four goals and two assists for six points. Nathan Bowness picked up the win turning away 27 shots. New coach Scott Cowie picked up his second win in as many nights. Hawks 5 - Rebels 4 WINCHESTER- The Hawks played against the Rebels for the second time in two days in Winchester. The Hawks remained in third place going into the game Fri., Jan. 31, but everything in the St. Lawrence Division is up for grabs with the exception of first place and sixth. The Hawks could move to within two points of the second place Rebels or the Rebels could move up by seven and clinch the second seed. It didn’t look good early for the Hawks as former Hawk Ramsey Wheeler scored two goals in the first period. The first he scored was at the 7:01 mark and the second at 12:00. The Rebels took that lead into the second but the Hawks drew to within one when Patrick Morin notched one from Wyatt Coghill and Austin Rothe at 5:49. The Rebels got that one back at 10:48 but Morin got his second of the game at 15:46, again from Coghill and Rothe, on the power play. With just 1:25 showing on the clock the Hawks knotted the affair up at three when Shawn Simms put away the garbage from Kyle Richardson and Eric Starcevic. In the third it was the Hawks’ Alex St. Marsaille sweeping one past the Rebels net minder with assists going to Morin and Captain Josh Stubbings to allow the Hawks their first lead of the game. It held up until 9:52 when the Rebels slid one past Hawks goalie Jeremy Wright at 9:25 to tie it up at four. Continued on page 14

Fifth goal goes in Putting the cap on his team’s dominating performance that night, Mitchell Haid fires the Rockets’ fifth goal of the night past the Vikings goalie, late in the third. Zandbergen photo

The Winchester Hawks’ new bench bosses, Scott Cowie and GM Craig (John Boy) Smith have a discussion with referee Tim Leblanc in the first period versus the Wolves, in Akwesasne on Sat., Feb. 1. The Hawks took the game in dramatic fashion 4-3. Moore Photo

New boss on Hawks bench Continued from page 13 That score held up until the final minute of regulation when Bryden Van Kessel set up Stubbings perfectly with only 35 seconds on the clock, and he made no mistake. The Hawks hung on for the 5-4 win and a great sigh of relief came over the bench and the crowd. Wright picked up the win making 36 saves. Rebels 3 - Hawks 2 WINCHESTERThe Winchester Hawks welcomed the Charl-Lan Rebels to the Joel Steele Community Centre on Wed. Jan.29, as a makeup game that was postponed on Fri. Dec. 27. It was a must win for both teams as they jockeyed for position in the tight playoff race. A win by the Hawks (40) would put them just one point behind the Rebels (43) for second and

move them three points ahead of Akwesasne (39) who are in the fourth and final place. A loss would keep them just one point up on the fifth placed Alexandria Glens (39). Four points is all that separated second place to fifth place in the tight St. Lawrence Division. It was the Rebels who came out hungry for the win scoring the first goal and outshooting the Hawks in the first period by 17-9. The Hawks tied it early in the second at 3:55 when Brandon Pantaleo banged one home on the power play, from Bryden Van Kessel, and goaltender Jeremy Wright. The Rebels broke the tie at 11:08 and carried it until 13:14 when Wyatt Coghill broke down the right side and snapped a shot high over the Rebels tender’s

glove. Getting the assists were Panteleo and Brandon Streeter. The score remained tied going into the third but former Hawk, Ramsey Wheeler scored just 28 seconds in. The Hawks had a couple of power plays to try to knot the score up, but didn’t manage to do so. With just under a minute the Hawks pulled their goaltender for the extra attacker but still could not get the puck to go across the line, and the Rebels hung on for the 3-2 win. Next week The Hawks are at home to the Casselman Vikings tonight Wed., Feb. 5 at 8:30 p.m. On Fri., Feb. 7 they will be home to the Alexandria Glens at 8:15 p.m., and visit the Char-Lan Rebels in Williamstown on Sat., Feb. 8 at 8:00 p.m.

Rockets’ glare carries them past Vikes, into seventh place The Rockets have been soaring pretty high lately with five wins and only two losses since the New Year began, scoring 29 goals and 21 against. The Rockets moved up in the standings from ninth to seventh place, and have a very real possibility to finish in fifth or sixth. As it stands now, they are just one point behind the Rockland Nationals, with two games in hand, and two points behind the Vankleek Hill Cougars, who they play this weekend. The Rockets have only three games remaining in the National Capital Junior Hockey League, for the 2013-14 season. Rockets 5 - Papineauville Vikings 0 CHESTERVILLE- The first place Papineauville Vikings were at the Chesterville Arena on Sat., Feb. 1 to face the red hot North Dundas Rockets. The Rockets were coming off a heartbreaking loss last Saturday night when they lost to the second Embrun Panthers 1-0. The Rockets have been playing with a lot of confidence for the past nine or 10 games, and competed well against teams they were looking up at in the standings. In the first period the Rockets got on the board first when Kyle Adams scored a power play goal, from Dustin Tinkler and John Vanzyl, with 6:08 remaining. They hung on to the 1-0 lead going into the second period until they struck again at 13:09, as Mitchell Haid

bulged the twine, from Pete KleinSwormink. The Rockets made it 3-0 with 2:55 left in the second as Adam Polgar beat the Vikings tender, with Brandon Mullin and Bryden Harris picking up the assists. In the third period the Rockets were relentless and lit the lamp again at 8:24, when they scored a power play goal by Polgar, from Ryan Byers and goaltender Matt Jenkins. Frustration set in for the Vikings and they took unnecessary penalties, and the Rockets once again made them pay on the power play, as Haid netted his second of the game, from Tinkler and Klein-Swormink. The Vikings took three misconducts; two match penalties, one major penalty, and seven minor penalties, while the Rockets only took four minor penalties in the third. The Rockets took the game 5-0, and sent a message that they will be a force in the playoffs no matter whom they play in the first round. Jenkins picked up his ninth win of the season as a member of the Rockets. This week The Rockets travel to Vankleek Hill to take on the Cougars on Sat., Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. The following week they are home to the Cumberland Bandits on Sat., Feb. 15 at 7:50 p.m. They also have a makeup game versus the La Peche Predateurs at a date to be determined.

French levelled in Chesterville The Winchester Hawks faced the Char-Lan Reblels twice last week, splitting both games. Hawks goaltender Jeremy Wright makes a save after a deflection off defenceman Eric Starcevic (6), while Char-Lan’s Jayden Lemire (23) tries to tip it home. Moore photo

The Papineauville Vikings’ Steven French took a heavy hit from the North Dundas Rockets’ Jacob Luimes who received a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct. French is tended to here by one his team’s officials. North Dundas handily won the game 5-0 against their topranked competition. Zandbergen photo

Terminal Continued from page 7 â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more boats that leave the area, the better the price gets,â&#x20AC;? says Derks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can fill four more boats a year, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great. Or weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be topping them up here.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better than boats coming in from Ohio and dropping off corn here,â&#x20AC;? he adds, alleging the influx of American corn brought in by Casco would tie up storage capacity at harvest time and â&#x20AC;&#x153;suppress the price. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what used to happen. And then they would buy our corn cheap in January and February.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, Wilson

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

contends that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not entirely without expertise on the matter: In the late 1970s and early 1980s, in his capacity with Ag Canada, he helped write federal legislation for what was called the inland elevator program, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to help build elevators in the grain deficit areas of the country, to serve as infrastructure which would help improve marketing opportunities.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offended, he says, that no one among local organizations is willing to entertain â&#x20AC;&#x153;an open and fair discussion, not even a halfhour discussion on a major policy item to say that we support that Morrisburg facility.â&#x20AC;? The municipality has received a consultantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice

that current zoning allows the proposed elevator, and council has consciously chosen to leave the matter in the hands of officials without interfering. Chagrined at being denied the opportunity to speak to council as a delegation, Wilson says the municipality has inappropriately lumped him in with the Rowntree camp â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which already addressed council last summer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear his presentation. Instead, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken to writing letters to the editor of local newspapers, essentially making public missives that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already written to the township. That correspondence, he explains, was going to be released

anyway to another party making a freedom of information request to South Dundas on the OGT matter. He says he supports the idea of increased grainprocessing capacity generally â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just not this one because of his legal concerns. He points out, however, that a recent review of Dundas County agriculture by Carleton University identified no such demand. Conducted by the geography department, the resulting report â&#x20AC;&#x153;made no mention of a shortage of grain-marketing facilities, or any need for an additional elevator somewhere to help with exporting, nothing,â&#x20AC;? says Wilson.

A ‘bucket’ of innovation Pamela Pearson Russell News Editor METCALFE — George Wright and Kim MacMullin have been farming in the Metcalfe area for nigh on 20 years. The solar-and windpowered farm is located on 9th Line, just outside the village.   Wright’s main crop these days is Gehl oats, developed by Dr. Vern Burrows at the Experimental Farm in Ottawa. For years, Wright sowed wheat and soybeans conventionally, but when the local grain elevator stopped buying wheat he needed to diversify.  The farm tried to do business with the Port of Prescott, but when they designated themselves to ethanol, he was forced to switch his crops altogether.   “Without being at the mercy of the elevators, it does give a person the option to grow what they want” said Wright, “but it also offered up the opportunity to experiment with other grains such as hard red spring wheat and buckwheat.”   With more consumers going gluten free, these products now account for half of Castor River’s sales.  Hull-less oats, barley, spelt and rye are also sown. Wright says that his initial plan was to mill into flour himself, but after some discussions with a mentor farmer, he decided to try his hand at ‘grain rolling’.   Everything is a trade off, and Wright noted the Gehl oats, which hull cleanly, do not have a high

yield. “But with the ‘middle man’ cut out,” Wright said “my sales at farmers markets get full retail value.”   The preprocessing removal of the hull is a major savings afforded by the use of the Gehl variety. Switching to rolling oats has also helped Castor River Farms in the current gluten free trend among customers.   Wright says that it is hard to keep the oats completely gluten free as they can be cross-contaminated when processed in large retail batches.   His process by comparison is “by the bucket”, and tested weekly with a product called EZ Gluten Free.  It will detect a presence above 10ppm, and Wright says that “it is easy to keep a bucket clean”, so he has stayed gluten free for over four years. That attention to detail paid off in October 2013, when Castor River Farms was recognized by the province with the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence stating, “Owners George Wright and Kim MacMullin have pioneered organic protocols for growing gluten free grains, relying on carefully planned crop rotations and rigorous cleaning of machinery to keep their buckwheat and oats completely uncontaminated.” The press release continued, “With more and more consumers going gluten free, these products now account for half of Castor River’s sales.” Continued on page 18

Local teen still recouping as DWI driver found guilty Pamela Pearson Russell News Editor RUSSELL — Derek Smith, now 17, of Russell, was out snowmobiling on the night of Feb. 9, 2013

with friends when he was struck by an impaired driver on the Eighth Line Road in Metcalfe. Smith had just gotten off the sled to adjust its skis to get back on the trail, when he was struck and thrown 20 feet by an automobile which 45-year-old Jeffrey Casselman, of North Dundas County, was driving. Casselman fled

the scene but was found later. Casselman. at the time, was charged with impaired driving for a blood alcohol level over 80 mg, dangerous driving causing bodily harm, failing to stop at the scene of an accident, impaired driving causing bodily harm, obstructing police and breach of probation. A year later, almost

to the day, Casselman was found guilty of dangerous driving causing bodily harm, failing to stop at the scene of an accident, obstructing police, breach of probation and the most serious, which could lead to the maximum penalty, including incarceration, for impaired driving causing bodily harm.

Cochrane reaches provincial Tankard playoffs Pamela Pearson Russell News Editor SMITHS FALLS — Hamilton’s Glendale Golf and Country Club team Mark Bice, skipped in the final by Greg Balsdon, are Brier bound after winning the 2014 Ontario Men’s Curling Championship Travelers Tankard, held at the Smiths Falls Community Memorial Centre arena last week. Baldson played a tight game against Tankard veteran Glenn Howard, on Feb. 2 taking the last end by one winning 6 to 5. On Feb. 1, and using the page-playoff system to determine who would play in the semi-finals, Russell’s Bryan Cochrane, and his City View team, played Jake Walker, of the Chinguacousy Curling Club. The two teams both went in with six games won and a four game loss over the week. Walker, with the hammer,

was the first to score one in the second, followed by one in the fourth. Cochrane got on the scoreboard with one in the fifth, but Walker came up to take another two in the sixth. Cochrane kept him at bay for the next four ends, winning 7 to 4, moving the team into place to play Feb. 2 against Bice. Bice started the game with hammer getting two points in the first and second ends. Cochrane lessened the stretch with two in the third. Blanking the fourth, Bice got another two in the fifth, followed by Cochrane’s one in the sixth. Bice took another one in the seventh but Cochrane took three in the eighth, closing the gap. Bice came back with two, finishing the game 9 to 6, putting Team Bice up against reigning eight-time provincial champion Howard. Cochrane, who has been at the Tankard a number of

times, states that he is proud of that, and how well the team has played. Cochrane also announced that he will be stepping down as skip — handing the reins over to team mate Mat Camm, who Cochrane says has the potenial to be one of the best curlers in Canada if not the world. The 2014 Tim Hortons Brier will be held March 1 to March 9 in Kamloops, BC. In other RCC news, Dave Stanley and his team of Joyce Cameron (third), Peter Hendrikx (second) and Linda Hendrikx (lead) won the Senior's Main Event with an undefeated 5 - 0 record. The OVCA Mixed Bonspiel has been a premier event on the Ottawa curling circuit for more than 50 years. Cochrane, along with and Ken Sullivan and Rick Bachand are heading to the Senior Men's Regionals in Trenton Feb. 8.

Grain rolling Continued from page 17 Wright has been a vendor at the Ottawa Farmers Market for five years, and is the Christmas and Indoor Committee Chair currently searching for a venue to house a winter market.  He mills flour on site to the requests of his customers.   Between there and their gate shop, the farm sells eggs, a variety of pork products, the heritage grains, and has recently introduced a new line of prepackaged pancake and cookie mixes. The farm is a returning vendor, and educator, at the annual Living Locally Fair held in Russell.  Wright is a firm believer in free information sharing: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order to grow and save heritage breeds and grains, we must

talk and sell directly to the people.â&#x20AC;?  To this end he travels to conferences and makes presentations about the lessons he has learned along the way.  One observation was that a farm operating on solar and wind power is feasible, until you bring on the big equipment.   A generator supplements his power needs then, but time for maintenance of that equipment is something that one needs to factor into the operations of the farm.  Parts and availability are always a challenge, but they are also a part of the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to their lifestyle. Wright will be presenting at the ECO Farm Day 2014 on Feb. 22 in Cornwall. Further information can be found at www.castorriverfarm.ca

CASTOR Country By Tom Van Dusen

RocKin Bonhomme I’m not making this up: The Russell Winter Carnival’s new beaver mascot is actually a recycled groundhog mascot from Waterloo that Kin Club president Doug Anthony spotted for sale on the Internet and quickly snapped up. The mascot has been named – or renamed – RocKin Russell and will be everywhere over the next four days rousing participants in the first winter carnival to be held in this community in about 20 years. The kickoff is tonight (Wednesday), 6:45 p.m., at Russell Meadows Retirement Community. It’s a wine and cheese reception sponsored by Russell Township, the Meadows, the Wine Garden Warehouse and the rapidly rebuilding St. Albert Cheese Factory. I imagine RocKin Russell will be on hand at the Meadows… but it’s not likely to be Doug inside the suit. That sweaty job will go to alternating Kin Club and student volunteers over the course of the carnival. Back in the day, a generation ago, there was a different carnival mascot. In fact, I was a key player, briefly, when my two kids were very young. I don’t remember what groups sponsored the carnival then or what finally led to its demise. But some time before the long hiatus, I agreed with other volunteers to don the oversized head for a few hours as part of the entertainment. The hollow head belonged to none other than Bonhomme Carnaval, the star of the show. You know the big galoot I’m talking about! It’s the snowman mascot made famous by the Quebec City carnival, a soft white suit with a sash wrapped around the waist and a matching tuque topping the colossal noggin. For my two-hour stint, I clambered inside the costume and lurched across the fairgrounds terrifying youngsters of all ages. Your vision is quite restricted; as I recall, the person playing the bonhomme looked out through

the mouth. I was accompanied by a handler to make sure I didn’t do too much damage to myself or to others in careening around the grounds like a zombie searching for his next meal. The best part came when, with great fanfare, the huge head was removed like the lid off a gift and my enthralled kids Victoria and Oliver discovered their dad was inside. I haven’t been able to impress them to that extent since. The moment was so magical that I wrote a children’s story based on it that’s kicking around on some computer hard drive somewhere. I never did anything with it. And now the carnival is back with RocKin Russell thanks to Russell Kin, the omnipresent, red-clad service organization that seems to pop up everywhere, from the annual Russell Agricultural Society Fair to the Living Locally Fair at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School. Since it was formed by Doug and others three years ago, the club has held golf tournaments, trivia nights – there’s another one coming up in March – and staffed the bar at plays put on by the Russell Association for the Performing Arts. Along the way, it has raised thousands of dollars for worthwhile causes. And here comes the resurrected carnival with its jampacked schedule of entertainment, 31 separate events from church suppers and free skating, to a craft show and Justin McKenna’s Brain Freeze Ice Fishing Derby, to Little Ray and his famous reptiles. One of the main highlights will certainly be RocKin the Night Away at Russell High School featuring Eddy and the Stingrays, with opening act The Rolling Bones. I can hardly wait to see RocKin Russell bust out some 50s dance moves! It’s a lot but not enough, Doug insists, revealing that the Kin Club is contemplating an unspecified major community project, a legacy kind of thing.

Our Doug’s one busy lad! An RCMP honcho, he’s preparing for an election Feb. 13 that could result in him becoming president of the national association representing 26,000 members. And there’s a rumour he’ll be a candidate for township council in October’s municipal election. He caught the local political bug serving as Mayor J.P. St. Pierre’s campaign manager in the last vote.

So don’t be surprised, even through Doug said he won’t be inside the suit, if RocKin Russell draws you aside during the carnival and asks for your support next October!

Continued from page 17 One charge, impaired driving for a blood alcohol level over 80 mg was thrown out because it was proven that the arresting officer breeched Casselman’s Charter of Rights, according to Terry Smith, Derek’s mother. The sentence hearing will be held in Ottawa on March 4. With multiple serious injuries, Smith has six surgeries on his right leg, which, due to a staph infection and bone graphs not growing, Smith is still

recovering. “If it does not improve in the next week,” Terry stated, “the doctors will be removing the hardware from Derek’s leg, replacing it with a rod, and we’ll see what happened from there. Smith has had 257 medical appointments, including nursing care, but has also passed his G2 drivers test, is back at Russell High School to finish his Grade 12 and doing the “usual teenage activity of hanging out with his friends, who have been a great support for Derek, as has the great community we live in,” stated Terry.
