Energy critic decries surging Hydro costs
CHESTERVILLE â€” In the days before offshore textile factories, clothing and yarn were produced locally. See the old-time yarn-making process at the 15th annual Spin-In, which rolls today (Wed., Feb. 12), 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Nelson LaPrade Centre. Held in conjunction with Heritage Week, the free event features spinners from the U.S., Maxville, Kingston, Brockville, Iroquois, Morrisburg, Ottawa, Alexandria, Cornwall, Winchester and Chesterville weather permitting.
Lions helping amputee, Sat.
MOREWOOD â€” Area Lionsâ€™ clubs have adopted the cause of a local amputee who is dealing with the aftermath of a devastating infection. In benefit of Dean Laponsee, the Chesterville Club has a pancake breakfast scheduled this Sat., Feb. 15, 8 a.m. until noon, at the Morewood Community Centre. In return for a donation, breakfast includes pancakes, beans, sausage, coffee and juice. All funds raised from this event are going to assist Laponsee with his future medical expenses. The Morewood man lost his lower legs, much of one hand, and 70 per cent of the sight in one eye after falling ill last year. On a related note, the local Lions are also hosting a trivia night on Sat., March 1, at the Chesterville Legion. Admission has been set at $10 per person, with up to eight people per team. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the trivial competition begins an hour later.

LONG SAULT â€“ Energized by the possibility of a provincial election this spring, outspoken MPP Lisa MacLeod lambasted the Wynne governmentâ€™s track record of skyrocketing hydro rates during a visit here on Mon., Feb. 10. â€œFamilies and businesses are tired of paying more for hydro each month to cover the costs of the Liberalsâ€™ reckless mismanagement and scandals,â€? said the Official Opposition Energy Critic, while speaking to local business owners concerned about their electricity costs, Feb. 10 in South Stormont.Â The Progressive Conservative member for Nepean-Carleton was commenting on the Liberalsâ€™ Long Term Energy Plan, which revealed that hydro rates will rise 42 per cent over the next five years. â€œBusinesses in Ontario continue to suffer the consequences of failed Liberal energy policies that have driven up their energy costs to unsustainable levels,â€? said MacLeodâ€™s colleague, StormontDundas-South Glengarry MPP Jim McDonell. â€œWe have access to the best-trained workforce in North America and to abundant natural Continued on page 3

Crysler Carnival starts this week
CRYSLER â€” The 48th annual Crysler Winter Carnival kicks off with bingo in the Community Centre tonight, Wed., Feb. 12. And the crowning achievement of this yearâ€™s carnival will undoubtedly be the communityâ€™s spectacularly revamped outdoor rink â€” recently valued at over $500,000 says Crysler Community Centre President Pierre Thibault.
Parmalat churning Winchester expansion Jeff Moore Record Staff WINCHESTERâ€” Parmalatâ€™s Winchester plant is undergoing a 5,000square-foot expansion in the butter department, doubling their production. Director of Operations Stephen Wilson announced the development last fall, and construction began in early December. Concrete for the foundation has been poured and preparations are underway for steel work in early March. According to Wilson, the new building should be completed in late May, to allow the company to bring in the machinery required for the butter production line. A staple item at the Winchester plant for many years, Parmalat will ramp up butter output gradually as the new addition comes on-line. The company intends to be in full production by the fall of this year. â€œIt is about opportunity for the future, and expanded [producer] flexibility,â€? Wilson said. â€œThe butter business is quite variable, and we need to be more flexible to meet increased demand,â€? he said. â€œWe have to be able to manage changes that occur in any condition, this (addition) will help us achieve this.â€? With relatively few
competitors in the region, such as Kraft, Saputo Foods, and St. Albert Cheese among others, he observed, â€œThis solidifies our role as a cheese producer in the region, and thatâ€™s a good thing,â€? He also alluded to benefits for the economy of the Township of North Dundas, Winchesterâ€™s local municipality. Parmalat is one of the largest employers in the township and a huge player
Continued from the front resources. Affordable energy is a key driver of investment and job creation. Itâ€™s imperative to take action today in order to make Ontario competitive again, attracting the jobcreators of the 21stÂ century that will help build our Provinceâ€™s future.â€?Â The Tory duo jointly hosted a roundtable on energy costs at the South Stormont Community Centre, giving local businesspeople an opportunity to tell their stories and explain just how electricity costs are impacting them. â€œWe canâ€™t afford to lose more jobs in this riding, so we have to take action.Â PC Leader Tim Hudak has a plan to create jobs and controlling electricity costs is a major part of that plan,â€? asserted McDonell. â€œIt is unacceptable that Kathleen Wynne expects
worldwide. Their parent company is Lactalis, with its headquarters in France. According to Wilson, however, â€œthere will be minimal new jobs created by this project, but it will be able to secure the employees it now has.â€? Parmalat is mostly known for its cheese production, under the brand names Black Diamond and Balderson. The brand name for their butter product is Lactancia.

Ontario ratepayers to foot the bill for her governmentâ€™s waste and scandal,â€? said MacLeod. â€œThe only reason that Ontario businesses and families are being forced to pay higher rates is because the Liberals wasted more than $1-billion to cancel the Mississauga and Oakville gas plants and let salaries skyrocket at Ontario Power Generation.â€? In December, the Auditor General announced that under the Liberal governmentâ€™s watch, taxpayers are on the hook for a $555- million pension deficit at Ontario Power Generation and that the costs will â€œhave a financial impact on the cost of electricity.â€? â€œEach month businesspeople are left wondering how they are going to afford to keep the lights on and pay their employees,â€? concluded MacLeod. â€œOnly a PC government will stop spiralling electricity costs to attract more businesses and
jobs to Ontario.â€? South Stormont Mayor Bryan McGillis reported that residents told the session about not receiving hydro bills for months, inappropriate treatment by customer service representatives and the malfunctioning of â€œsmartâ€? meters â€” issues now being reviewed by the provincial ombudsman. McGillis expressed special concern for fixed- and singleincome families and also noted the impact of high hydro rates on business development in his township. However, a few areas of South Stormont are fortuitously insulated from high Ontario hydro rates by being plugged into Cornwall Electric. Thanks to a quirk of history, the cityâ€™s power utility â€” which contracts power directly from Hydro Quebec â€” has been shielded from the energy and grid policies emanating from the provincial brain trust in Toronto.

Editorial Minimum wage debate hits close to home The minimum wage debate is heating up again. But from my perspective, the question is what will really go up with a new minimum wage? Quality of life, standard of living, migration, inflation, and business bankruptcies are a few of the possibilities. How is a minimum defined, and how does it allow us to compare across the country? What does it mean for those on 'fixed incomes'? I see the minimum wage problem first hand because I work in a service industry that depends more on business budgets than consumer discretionary buying power. We deliver news and information you might not hear otherwise through your social networks, while our advertisers expand their customer base through ads that pay our printing costs. Our business is a cut-throat one, with heavy competition from other papers and the internet. Subscriptions are not as guaranteed as they once were for any print media. The relationship with advertisers is a close one – the better the circulation, the more exposure, more ads mean more pages for content that attracts readers. Each advertiser in turn has a budget based upon a business plan: their forecast revenues and expenses. Some never take profits from their business, choosing instead to spend it on innovation, new technology, or finding new markets. Innovation, specialization, and staying current apply to qualified workers as well, and qualified workers cost more money. This brings us back to the minimum wage issue. If a qualified worker has earned a better wage through education, training and experience, and if that wage is affordable within the business plan, then the employee and business both benefit. The business can predict their wage expenses very accurately (taxes and other payroll deductions), while other expenses like advertising are adjusted to make the business plan work (have a profit). Revenue for most businesses is driven by harsh competition: customers will go where the best prices / services are. A skilled worker is a customer too, they will stay if wages elsewhere are similar and they are happy. Raising the wage of the lowest worker impacts the relative happiness of all the workers who have earned their wage increases. For a business owner, matching the competition means competitive wages and prices, but a higher wage either means higher prices at the expense of revenue competitiveness, fewer workers doing the same work at the expense of their enjoyment of the job, or less money for advertising and innovation of their product. Because they are dependent on the advertiser dollar of small business, a dramatic minimum wage increase won’t help small regional newspapers and the industries they support. Advertisers will be forced to cut discretionary expenses like advertising before their revenue picks up. Tax credits make much more sense than a minimum wage raise. Pamela J Pearson

The Road Home
Brother Doug stepping out of political ring Carolyn Thompson Goddard Record Contributor For over 40 years my dad served as a school trustee in our area. While he was fortunate to be acclaimed on many occasions, there were a number of times when he had to “fight” an election. During an election campaign our kitchen became a beehive of activity as we folded hundreds of leaflets, watched Mom help Dad with speech writing, then listen attentively as he practised speaking in anticipation of the candidate meetings. My parents believed in the personal touch when it came to campaigning and so they made seemingly endless drives to people’s homes to drop off the leaflets and I often was pressed into service distributing his campaign
Veterans Affairs To Editor: There have been many allegations, accusations and misinformation made public by the Public Service Alliance of Canada union in the past week. PSAC has been deliberately misleading our Veterans, stating that vital services that they rely on will simply be removed and unavailable as a result of office closures. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The facts are that these closures simply seek to maximize services to Veterans by utilizing the approximately 650 offices nation-wide to provide Veterans with the services they need. As an example, they have closed an office in Cape Breton with 17 staff serving an average of 10 people per day, some simply dropping off forms. Our Government is trying to ensure that taxpayer's money is being spent on providing quality service to our deserving Veterans. This information is something that PSAC fails to provide to Veterans. This is the same organization that opposes Bill C11, the Priority Hiring for Injured Veterans Act. This law will give injured Veterans the first opportunity at federal jobs. Veterans have stood up for Canada in good times and bad. The fair-weather
literature throughout Chesterville. Election night would find us sitting in the living room of our house on King Street, anxiously awaiting the periodic calls from Dad updating us on the vote count, making a game out of speculating which poll would come in next as well as who would win it and becoming more than a little disgruntled when sent off to bed before the results were known. As time passed some of my brothers followed their father’s example and entered municipal politics which led to even more exciting election nights and numerous calls as we anxiously awaited the election results. I suppose that one could say municipal politics along with teaching and electrical contracting is a very impor-
tant part of our family’s identity. My brother, Doug Thompson of Greely Ontario, has served the people of Osgoode Township and area as a member of the municipal council for almost 31 years. He has just recently announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2014. Upon hearing this, I recalled distributing campaign literature in Greely during one of his early campaigns, working as a scrutineer in later elections and finally as a resident of Osgoode Villages casting a vote for my brother. I have watched as he attended community functions and assisted those who needed his help. I have listened as he spoke on difficult issues, being respectful of those
Letters To The Editor friends at PSAC only stand up for Veterans when it suits their political objectives. Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to meet with Veterans and Legion representatives who assure me they receive excellent service from the Government. Veterans in SD&G who currently require service are aided through my own office or through their local Legion representative. Now they can also be served at Service Canada offices. Services will always be there for Veterans. Furthermore, our Government has been extremely supportive of our Veterans through several initiatives such as the Helmets to Hardhats program, as well as doubling Government contribution rates to the Burial Services Fund. Since 2006, we have increased funding for Veterans by nearly $5-billion. I have the utmost respect for the men and women in this country who have risked their lives to protect us. Many of them live right here in SDSG. I urge PSAC to respect our Veterans and provide them with the full story. Veterans have fought enough for all of us. They should not be expected to fight PSAC’s political battles as well. I would like to assure all
Veterans in Canada that the services that they need will always be there for them. I urge Veterans to contact my office should they have any concerns surrounding Veterans Affairs and my office will be glad to work with you. Guy Lauzon Member of Parliament, Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry
Supporting our seniors’ centres To Editor: There is an upcoming event, organized by Carefor to help our senior centres fundraiser, to be held at the Finch Community Centre, on Sat., Feb. 22. Doors will open at 7 p.m. with a cost of $10 per person. As Deputy Mayor of South Stormont, it has come to my attention that our Seniors’ Support Centres have to work harder to raise money to maintain the same level of care they have been providing to our seniors in years past. Our Seniors’ Support Centres have provided foot care, Meals on Wheels, transportation, wellness clinics and a healthy, homey environment for seniors to meet and socialize for over 20 years. Please help support our Seniors’ Support Centres. They are an important and necessary part of our com-
with differing points of view than his and being the consummate politican. Speaking with him this evening, there was a combination of pride and sadness in his voice as he spoke of the decision which he had so painful made recently. Like him, I am proud of the things that my brother has accomplished while in office, proud of a man known for respecting differing points of view and feel a tinge of sadness that this year there will be one less reason to anxiously await the election results. That said, it will be nice to know that as this door closes, the one that is opening for Doug will give him more time to spend with his family, something all of his siblings will be celebrating.

New owners aim for continued sweet success at Sanders Maple Farm Carolyn Thompson Goddard Record Contributor FINCH â€” In 1983 Rosemary and Albert Sanders began experimenting with syrup production from a bushlot they happened to acquire in a cropland deal on Goldfield Road, and â€œSanders Maple Farmâ€? was started. Throughout the next 30 years the former dairy farmers sold maple syrup to the general public and businesses as well as running an onsite Pancake House. With the closing of the Pancake House at the
conclusion of the 2008 season, the couple began planning their retirement and eventually put their beloved farm up for sale. While they had a number of inquiries into purchasing the business, the right buyers didnâ€™t come along so it was taken off the market. A short while later, family friend Dale Dingwall dropped by for a quick visit, then went home to discuss with his wife, Wendy, the possibility of purchasing the Sanders Maple Farm from their long-standing friends. According to Rosemary, you â€œcouldnâ€™t find better peopleâ€? to take over their
beloved farm. Dale has experience in the agricultural field, being a farmer, bee-keeper and cash cropper as well as working for the township. A furniture maker, he mentioned that as a young fellow his father would take him on walks in the bush and taught him about the different kinds of trees â€” knowledge that he will certainly put to good use in his new endeavour. Wendy, part owner of Moeâ€™s Diner near St. Andrews West, mentioned that her children are looking forward to helping out at the Maple Farm.

The Sanderses are planning to spend the next couple of years assisting the Dingwalls. â€œWeâ€™d never drop it in their lap and leave them on their own,â€? offered Rosemary, adding she looks forward to teaching Wendy the art of maple candy- and butter-making. â€œWe appreciate your knowledge and expertise,â€? said Wendy in reply, during a recent joint interview with both couples. As the conversation continued around the kitchen table in the Sanders Home, one got a feeling of warmth and happiness as the torch was passed to the new owners. Producing 600 to 700 gallons of the sweet stuff annually, the approximately 3,500-tap operation includes the output of about 400 maple trees meticulously planted by the owners in plantation-like fashion during the early 1980s. This innovative â€œmaple orchardâ€? only began to come on-stream in 2005. The orchard was featured when other area producers visited the farm last summer, as part of an excursion from the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers Association annual general meeting in Cornwall.

South Dundas Lutherans merge
If it is financially feasible, then both St. Peterâ€™s (1865) and St. Paulâ€™s (1876) will continue to serve their congregation. Garlough noted there is a â€œlot less wear and tear on one buildingâ€? when two are being used. At this time, the 10:30 a.m. services alternate on a monthly basis between Williamsburg and Morrisburg, with the manse located in Williamsburg. Garlough mentioned that this was a long process, almost three years and this point of view was echoed by Pastor Gullons. She spoke of working slowly to â€œensure things were done correctlyâ€? and the information required by the congregation to make the necessary decisions provided and that they were â€œmoving forward slowly, prudently and realisticallyâ€?. The merger of the St. Peter â€™s and St. Paulâ€™s Lutheran congregations in South Dundas is the most recent in a series of amalgamations among

Carolyn Thompson Goddard Record Contributor WILLIAMSBURG â€” In the 1780s German Palatine United Empire Loyalists arrived in Williamsburg Township, and by 1791 Lutheran pastor Reverend Samuel Schwerdfeger had joined â€” beginning a ministry that continues to this day. A new chapter in the history of the Lutheran Church in Williamsburg Township began on January 1, 2014 with the creation of the South Dundas Evangelical Lutheran Community Church, joining together the congregations of St. Paulâ€™s in Morrisburg with St. Peter â€™s in Williamsburg. Russel Garlough, member of the Partnership Committee, stated that over the past year the main focus was on combining the financial organization and over the next year, they will be evaluating the feasibility of operating both church sites.
The recently created South Dundas Evangelical Lutheran Community Church, a merger of the congregations at St. Peterâ€™s in Williamsburg (left) and St. Paulâ€™s in Morrisburg (above), continues to operate both church building sites at this time.

Christian denominations in our area. According to Pastor Gullons, â€œhow you amalgamate is determined by your denominational policiesâ€?, but it appears that the process is similar in that the decisions are made by
the congregational members guided by secular parish leaders. There is little doubt that this is a painful process for all involved, but a very necessary one to ensure the survival of the church into the future.

Monique Monast-Carr enthused about Friday night’s dance and live music, remarking that band Daisytrain’s first Chesterville performance was a hit for the full house in attendance. “There was a crowd on the dance floor and a crowd at the bar … just like a Chesterville dance,” she exclaimed.
Shelley McLeod acknowledged some last-minute glitches, including the sudden loss of approximately 25 per cent of the three-on-three tournament’s expected ice time at the Chesterville Arena, where broomballers instead played for a time on Saturday morning. There was also a problem locating the township’s supply of snowshoes, so that planned activity didn’t happen, she apologetically explained. Seventeen-year-old Cheyanne Vanderlind — one of five competing North Dundas District High School girls — took the crown as the 2014 Ice Breaker Winter Carnival queen. Each
was asked to deliver a brief speech on the virtues of youth volunteering, Saturday morning at the Legion. Volunteering “teaches us that after we go off into the world, we should always return home to volunteer to the people that helped us grow into what we are, because without them we wouldn’t be here today,” said Vanderlind. “Volunteering teaches us new skills, it teaches us to give back to the community, and makes it a better place for the next generation so they too can follow in our footsteps.” In conversation with host Mayor Eric Duncan, Vanderlind extolled her grandmother, Virginia Patenaude, as someone exemplifying community volunteerism.

Moose Creek Carnival a success Carolyn Thompson Goddard Record Contributor MOOSE CREEK â€” Eric Delhey, President of the Moose Creek Recreation Association, is very happy with the 2014 Moose Creek Winter Carnival, calling it â€œa highly successful three daysâ€?. The event raised approximately $7,000. some of which will go towards the building of a storage shed for the communityâ€™s Zamboni. A sold out Yuk Yuk Comedy Show was a new and highly successful, event to the Winter Carnival, followed by Saturday full of activities for young and old alike. From a soldout Yuk Yuk Comedy Theatre evening to the ever popular Pond Hockey Tournament, there was something for everyone. The community
involvement and support was overwhelming. Club Optimiste sponsored the childrenâ€™s Bingo, and outdoor activities included a scavenger hunt and snowshoeing. All that exercise and

Triumph for Team ESPN
The Moose Creek Carnival featured a number of activities, but a crowd favourite was the fourth annual Pond Hockey Tournament which began on Feb 6 and culminated in the championship games on Sun., Feb 9. Team ESPN, shown shortly after winning the championship game against Team Ace of Spades, received a trophy, $500 and a Molson Canadian duffel bag for each player. Shortly after the gameâ€™s conclusion there was a lot of lighthearted banter between Ace of Spades team members (Brody Coleman, Ryan Villeneuve, Camil Saborin, Max Adam, Matthew Lafleche and Chris â€œChazzâ€? Coleman) and Team ESPN. Brody Coleman, unofficial Ace of Spades team spokesman, told The Record â€œit was a devastating loss,â€? however, the smiles seen and conversations overheard tell another story â€“ one of good fun and good sportsmanship. Shown above, Team ESPN players, from left: Julian Moffat, Justin Villeneuve, Jake Benton, Derrick Villeneuve and Matt Walsh. Absent from the photo was Nick Adam and Coach Ryan Villeneuve.

Shawn Sims OT, SO hero Jeff Moore Record Staff Shawn Sims scored in overtime versus the Alexandria Glens and also netted the shootout winner against the Casselman Vikings. The Winchester Hawks playoff status was to be determined this past weekend, this the final weekend of the regular season. On Wed., Feb. 5 the Winchester Hawks took on the Vikings. With a win the Hawks could pull to within one point of the idle CharLan Rebels for second place in the St. Lawrence Division of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League and with a loss it would leave them three back and a huge mountain to climb. Then on Fri., Feb. 7 the Hawks welcomed the Alexandria Glens with huge playoff implications. The Hawks battled for second place and the Glens were fighting for their playoff lives. On Sat., Feb. 8 the Hawks travelled to Williamstown to take on the Char-Lan Rebels, the team they were trying to catch in the standings. Rebels 4 - Hawks 2 WILLIAMSTOWN- On Sat., Feb. 8 the Hawks were at the Char-Lan Recreation Centre to take on the Rebels for a winner-take-all game for second place. The Hawks were still down a couple of key D-men. The Rebels struck just 37 seconds into the first period, but it was the Hawks with the equalizer when Kyle Richardson scored unassisted at 11:05. The Rebels replied at 12:47and took that
lead to the dressing room. In the second period the Rebels added two more to take a two goal lead to the third period 4-1. In the third the Hawks closed to within two when Kyle McDougall made it interesting, from Richardson. The Hawks’ offence sputtered, however, only getting four shots in the frame and the Rebels took the game and second place. The Hawks finish the regular season with 48 points just one behind the Rebels. Hawks 4 - Glens 3 (OT) WINCHESTER - On Fri., Feb. 7 the Alexandria Glens were at the Joel Steele Community Centre to take on the Winchester Hawks. Both teams were in a mustwin predicament, the Hawks for second place and the Glens just to get into the playoffs. The Hawks were down three of their top four defenceman, so it was a challenge the Hawks had to face. It was the Hawks who got on the scoreboard first when Wyatt Coghill fired one home from Jordan Brunet and Patrick Morin on the power play at 5:16 into the first period. Just 53 seconds later the Hawks got their second of the game when Austin Rothe beat the Glens tender from Coghill to go up by two. The Glens got one back at 14:29 to close the Hawks lead to 2-1 going into the second period. In the second the Glens tied it up at 6:31 but the Hawks broke the tie at 12:20 as Jason Rose blasted one from the point from Josh

Stubbings and Christopher Rossi to retake the lead. In the third period the Glens knotted the game at 3 at the 14:00 mark. There was no scoring for the rest of the game and it was headed to overtime. In the overtime it was Shawn Sims playing hero as he hit pay dirt unassisted at 1:56 on a partial breakaway down the left side, when he went shelf. Hawks Jeremy Wright took the win making 42 saves. The win put the Hawks temporarily in second place as the Rebels lost to the Akwesasne Wolves the same night. Hawks 5 - Vikings 4 (SO) WINCHESTERThe Winchester Hawks welcomed the Casselman Vikings on Wed. Feb. 5, to the Joel Steele Community Centre as a make-up game that was originally sched-
uled for Fri., Dec. 7. The Hawks with a win could close to within one point of the idle Char-Lan Rebels. The Hawks came out firing on all cylinders, and it was Shawn Sims on the breakaway that beat Vikings starting goaltender JeanPhillippe Brais at 5:19 of the first period. The Hawks added to the lead with 2:25 on the clock when Wyatt Coghill scored from Austin Rothe and Jordan Brunet and took the 2-0 lead into the second period. Brandon Pantaleo gave the Hawks a three-goal lead when he finished a play started by Chrisopher Rossi. The Vikings got one back at 8:20 as the league’s scoring leader Taylor Widenmaier hit the score sheet for his 40th goal of the season from Thierry Henry. One minute after that the Vikes struck
again, this time it was Simon Cousineau, from Maxime Choquette to close the gap to one. The Hawks again extended their lead as Sims put one away from Kyle Richardson and Alex St. Marsaille at 17:35. Widenmaier scored his second of the game unassisted with 1:53 remaining in the second. The Hawks took a 4-3 lead into the third in which there was no scoring until Vikings goaltender Gianmarco De Meis, who took over from Brais at the beginning of the third was yanked for the extra attacker, and it paid off as Devin Desnoyers put away the garbage with 57 seconds left. Nicholas Brazeau and Widenmaier picked up the assists. Neither team could score in the overtime and a shootout was required. In
the shootout it was Widenmaier in the second slot who beat Hawks tender Jeremy Wright for the lead but Bryden Van Kessel went five-hole on De Meis to tie it at one.

Panthers split on weekend Vikes double Panthers to claim first Jeff Moore Record Staff The Embrun Panthers went into the weekend hoping to close the gap between them and the first place team in the National Capital Junior Hockey League, the Papineauville Vikings. Only three points separated the two teams in the standings and with a win for the Panthers on Fri. Feb. 7 would move them to within one point. Then on Sun. Feb. 9 the two would go head to head, but first the Vikings had a game on Sat. Feb. 8 against the Cumberland Bandits. It was an exciting weekend for sure. Vikings 6 - Panthers 3 PAPINEAUVILLE- The Embrun Panthers were in Papineauville to face the Vikings on Sun. Feb. 9 for a first versus second showdown. The Vikings won against the Cumberland bandits on Sat. Feb. 8 so they remained three points up on the
Panthers going into the matinee. The Vikings hit the scoreboard first just 44 seconds into the first period. At 2:18 the Panthers answered when Shane McPhee potted one from Eric Dubois to tie it up. The Vikings got that one back at 4:48, but at 5:17 Scott Flemming scored from Daniel Cogan to knot it up at two. In the second period the Panthers scored at 1:03 on an unassisted goal by Harrison Wood. The Vikings added three more goals in the second to take a 5-3 lead into the third period. In the final frame the Vikings put the Panthers down with the lone goal in the third, and hung on for the 6-3 victory, and move five points up on the Panthers, clinching first place heading into the final week of the season. Panthers 12 - Predateurs 5 EMBRUN- On Fri. Feb. 7 the La Peche Predateurs were in Embrun to take on the Panthers. The Preds have been having a rough go lately and the Panthers had no mercy. The Panthers opened the first period with three unanswered goals, the first one at 3:20 when Harrison Wood scored and the second
at 5:58 as Taylor Armstrong put one away. The third goal came from Shawn Ennis at 8:31. The Preds scored to make it 3-1, but the Panthers answered quickly at 11:02 on a goal by Shane McPhee.

Vikes finish with 2 more wins Jeff Moore Record Staff The Casselman Vikings didn’t have much to prove as they closed the final week of their regular season with an impressive 35 wins, two losses in regulation, two overtime losses, and two shootout losses for 74 points, good for first place for the balance of the playoffs and, the most points in the entire Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. On Wed. Feb. 5 the Vikings were in Winchester to take on the Hawks, then they were home to the Char-Lan Rebels on Thur. Feb. 6, and visited the Alexandria Glens on Sat. Feb. 8. Vikings 4 - Glens 3 ALEXANDRIAThe Vikings went to the Billie Gebby Arena in Alexandria to visit the Glens on Sat. Feb. 8. The Glens needed a win to keep their playoff aspirations, and in the first they got on the score sheet first at 13:06 of the first frame, and hung on to the lead heading to the second period, with a glimmer of hope. In the second the Vikings dashed that hope when Luc Forget bulged the twine at 5:52, from Maxime Choquette and Kevin Giroux on the power play. Then at 14:09 they added another as Yanik Bertand slid one home from Thierry
Henry. With only 1:22 remaining Forget scored unassisted to give the Vikings a 4-1 lead heading to the final frame. At 7: 54 the Glens tried to change the momentum as Jesse Turrin challenged Taylor Wienmaier to a scrap and they went toe to toe. That seemed to spark the Glens and they came back to within one but it wasn’t enough as the Vikings held on for the 4-3 win. With that loss and the Akwesasne Wolves win against the Morrisburg Lions, the Glens were eliminated from the playoff contention. Gianmarco De Meis picked up the win blocking 39 of 42 shots. Vikings 6 - Rebels 3 CASSELMAN- On Thur. Feb. 6, the Char-Lan Rebels were welcomed to the J.R. Brisson Complex, in Casselman, to take on the Vikings. The Vikings could play spoiler for the Rebels, as they were just one point up on the Winchester Hawks. There was no scoring in the first period until there was only 4:39 showing on the clock when the league’s leading scorer, Taylor Widenmaier completed a play started by Devon Desnoyers and Mark Hough on a power play, to make it 1-0. The Rebels tied it up at one with just 1:22 remaining also on the power play, and took a 1-1 tie in to

the second period. In the second it wouldn’t take the Vikings long as Mark Hough slapped one home from the point, another power play at 2:32 from Nicolas Brazeau and Widenmaier. The Rebels tied it back up at 6:46 again on the power play, but Brazeau answered at 13:18 for the Vikings from Widenmaier and Desnoyers. Desnoyers added to the lead on the power play at 13:18 from Hough and Thierry Henry. With 2:52 remaining in the period the Vikings’ Simon Cousineau increased the lead to three on the power play, when he finished a play from Maxime Choquette and Henry and took a 5-2 lead into the third period. In the third the Rebels got one back at 1:30, but the Vikings closed out the scoring when Kevin Giroux scored from Cousineau and Martin Forget and Vikes hung on to the 6-3 win.

Lions end year with two wins Jeff Moore Record Staff The Morrisbug Lions were on a hot streak as of late and that continued this week as they closed out their year. There were a lot of positives to take into next year and they said goodbye to overager Captain Drew Veenstra. Lions 4 - Wolves 3 MORRISBURG - The Lions were home for their second of a back-to-back series against the Akwesasne Wolves. There was nothing really on the line for either team except for pride for the Lions and momentum for the Wolves. The Lions struck first at the 12:46 mark of the first period as Justin Rutley found twine, from Justin Lefebvre. The Wolves answered back at 16:29 on the power play to knot the affair heading to the second period. The Lions took the lead again when Michael Paquette hit the score sheet just 1:28 into the second period, Rutley grabbing the assist. The Lions added to the lead when Andrew Jarvis put one away-unassisted just 33 seconds later. At 10:32 the Lions took the three-goal lead as Eric Evans potted one from his brother, Curtis Evans and Captain Drew Veenstra, and took that lead to the third period. The Wolves answered with two goals in the third to close to within 1, but the Lions managed to hang on to the 4-3 win. The Wolves captain Dom Coyle set a milestone in his final regular season game, reaching his 200th career point in the EOJHL. Brandon Chilton took the win making 31 saves.
Wolves 5 - Lions 1 AKWESASNE - The Morriburg Lions went to Akwesasne on Sat. Feb. 8 to take on the Wolves. It was a must win for the Wolves as they trailed just a single point behind the Alexandria Glens for the fourth and final playoff spot. The Wolves opened the scoring early, just 1:28 into the first period, and took the lead going into the second period. The Wolves came out on fire in the second period as they scored three unanswered goals, stunning the Lions goaltender John Gilmer. The Lions put backup goalie Brandon Chilton in the cage for the third period but again it was the Wolves

scoring for the fifth time, at 5:49. The Lions finally answered with a goal from Justin Rutley assisted by Justin Lefevbre and Kieran Divine, but that was all the offence the Lions could muster. The Wolves pulled off the 5-1 win and clinched the final playoff spot in the St. Lawrence Division, eliminating the Alexandria Glens. Lions 4 - Islanders 2 MORRISBURG - On Tue. Feb.4 the Gananoque Islanders were the visitors at the Morrisburg Arena to face the pesky Lions. The Islanders were in first place in the Rideau Division of EOJHL with 55 points, while the Lions were in the basement of the St. Lawrence Division. The Islanders hit the score sheet first at 6:48 of the first period, and held the lead going into the intermission. The lead held up until 6:22 of the second period when Isaac Brownlee knocked one home from Andrew Jarvis and Drew Veenstra to tie it up at 1-1. The Lions took the lead for the first time at 11:38 as Justin Lefevbre slid one past the Islanders’ keeper from Zach Belaire and Kieran Devine. The Lions took a twogoal lead at 13:09 when Michael Paquette scored from Justin Rutley. In the third period the Islanders got to within one at 11:08, but at 12:33 Paquette scored his second of the game from Jarvis and the Lions pulled the upset against a very good Islander team. Lions’ goaltender Brandon Chilton picked up the win stopping 35 of 37 shots.

Revived winter carnival receives glowing praise Pamela Pearson Russell News Editor RUSSELL — The Russell Winter Carnival, a past annual tradition in the village, was revived this past week, after a 20-year hibernation. Held in the heart of winter, the carnival was a winter wonderland of activities for both adults and children, including skating, races, ice fishing, contests, dancing and games, to name a few. It was organized by the Kin Club of Russell and supported and sponsored by many business and community services groups. The 2nd Russell Scouts and Girl Guides even braved a night of winter camping at the fairgrounds. When speaking with Nikki Jardine, a Kin member and lead organizer of the four-day event, she praised the efforts put forward by all the volunteers who help to run many of the events during the carnival, including Aiden Harps, 10, who organized the 2nd annual Brain Freeze Ice Fishing Derby on the banks of the Castor. The derby attracted double its numbers from last year and raised $1,900 from both donations at the after party at the Russell House on Feb. 8 for Justin McKenna and Brain Matters. The Russell Lions revived two activities from previous carnivals - Bingo and the Gold Rush. The Bingo jackpot winner was Kathkeen Zlomislic, and two teams 'found the gold' (Team Reanne Slater, Team Jeff O’Neil and Shayla Barry), so the club decided to reward both teams with $500 each.

They nailed it
At one of the 10 stops of the Russell Winter Carnival Amazing Race contest on Feb. 8, Ray Scharf and his daughter Charlotte had to get their nails done. Fifteen teams participated in the on-foot race which had teams going from Foodland to the banks of the Castor River and back to the fairgrounds. PJ Pearson Photo
Russell High School hosting open houses for incoming students RUSSELL — Two Open Houses for parents and students will be taking place in the coming week for students from Grade 6 entering into Grade 7, and for Grade 8 students tran-
sitioning to Grade 9. Incoming Grade 7 will be on Thurs., Feb. 13 starting at 6:30 p.m. and those coming into Grade 9 will be on Thurs. Feb. 20 at 6:30 p.m.
OPP Reports In the week of Feb. 3 - 10, Russell County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to 194 occurrences which included 18 collisions, two thefts, three domestics and one impaired driver, resulting in 19 people charged with various offences. Impaired Driver EMBRUN — On Feb. 5, constables responded to a traffic complaint on NotreDame Street in Embrun, where a witness reported following a vehicle that was travelling all over the road. The vehicle was stopped on that same road by the OPP. John Kaczmarek, 62, of Embrun, provided a breath sample, registering a fail and is charged with driving while ability impaired and driving with more than 80 mgs. of alcohol in the blood. Theft CASSELMAN— OPP responded to a theft complaint at the Knights of Columbus location on St. Isidore Road on Feb. 5. A parked vehicle had been broken into with a purse and other items stolen. The suspect(s) then proceeded to go to the Casselman National Bank and tried to use the
stolen cards at the ATM machine. Failing to provide care EMBRUN — The Ontario SPCA Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Branch received a complaint concerning a dog that had injuries to both front legs in April of 2013. An OSPCA officer investigated and spoke with the dog owner, Stephane Bouchard. Bouchard explained that he had been ice fishing with his two dogs when one of the dogs spotted something and took off running. The other dog chased after it, tripped, flipped over and fell down, injuring both its front legs. The dog’s legs had been broken for a month without having been taken to see a veterinarian. The dog was examined by a veterinarian, following OSPCA Compliance Orders, who found both legs to be fractured. Bouchard pleaded guilty to all charges, and was sentenced to three years probation and three years prohibition from living with, caring for, or owning an animal. He was also given seven days to find his remaining dog a new home and fined $3,390 on Jan. 15.
DocFest is back and so is the Doc! RUSSELL — The Russell Lions’ enormously popular DocFest will be returning March 29. Once again, the Lions, with the help of local celebrity Gerry Heymans, will be raising funds for the Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation (WDMF) but this time, it will be for specific equipment to be used in the hospital’s birthing unit — an infant Panda® Warmer and the Lions are answering the call. The WDMH has listed this piece of equipment as a priority because of the growing number of births that take place at the hospital. The warmers are an allin-one device used at every birth but are a versatile piece of equipment because they
can be used in other situations such as premature births or other complications found at the time of birth. The hospital currently has two Panda® Warmers and one older-style warmer. According to the WDMH, it is important to have the same machines in order to eliminate the chance of error when dealing with different pieces of equipment. It also makes it more difficult for staff to learn the various technical requirements if the machines are not the same in each room. With the addition of another two warmers, each room in the maternity ward will be equipped with one. In 2010, with the incredible support from local families, the business communi-
Battle of the wages TORONTO — Ontario’s Liberal government is raising the minimum wage to $11 an hour effective June 1. The increase of 75 cents per hour was announced on Jan. 30, and according to
Premier Kathleen Wynne, there will be further annual increases based on inflation rates. Wynne believes that the vast majority of people in Ontario “understand that
ty and event goers themselves, the DocFest event raised over $34,000. Added to this, Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) matched the funds bringing the total amount raised close to $70,000. This provided a huge financial boost for WDMH’s ophthalmology unit. The Russell Lions hope that the generosity the community showed the last time will be present with DocFest2. Lion Henry Staal points out “Russell and its surrounding communities always give generously.” Staal, who is reprising his role as DocFest Committee Chair, said, “We were blown away by the response from the community during the last DocFest and when we heard that our
local hospital could use more infant warmers, the Russell Lions knew the time was right for DocFest2!” Staal and Heymans are joined by many of their original organizing committee members including, Ted Morrison, Marc Bourque, Scott Cameron, Stu Bankley and Julius Toth. Together the committee hopes to raise the funds needed to supply WDMH with the equipment they need. DocFest2 will take place on March 29 at 6 p.m. and promises to be an even more fun-filled evening than the last time, complete with dinner and entertainment. Tickets are $50 per person and can be obtained at the Russell Pronto or by calling 613-445-2097.
it’s very difficult to make ends meet living on minimum wage, and that there needs to be a fair way of allowing minimum wage to keep up with the cost of living.” There has been a significant reaction to announce-
ments from both anti-poverty groups and small business owners. One is demanding the province up the wage to $14-per hour, while others, like the Ontario Convenience Stores Association is thankful it is ‘only’ a 75 cents increase.

McInnes honoured with outstanding principal award Past Russell Public School Principal Sandy McInnes, now Principal of South Grenville District High School in Prescott, was recently honoured, along with a number of principals from across the country, for exemplary leadership. Through the Learning Partnership program, McInnes was nominated by his peers with numerous letters of recommendation written by school board staff,
teachers, and students. His selection was made by a national committee who judged nominees on characteristics of outstanding principals; evidence of partnerships with parents and community; a personal story illustrating successful change and innovation that resulted in improved student achievement. McInnes has been principal at four other schools within the Upper Canada District School Board.
Yes, fellow complainers, it has indeed been a harsh winter, one that many are calling old-fashioned in its ferocious cocktail of plummeting temperatures, painful snow load and stinging wind chill. Just like the “good old days”, some are saying. Furnaces have been running almost non-stop, wiper blades have been snapping off and pedestrians have been taking dives on the ice… like the good old days. As nimble as I am, even I fell face first behind the Russell Arena the other day. I surprised myself by coming down in the push-up position and clambering back up without any damage. All that working out at JR Fitness in Embrun is paying off! In the climate change era, such a winter wasn’t supposed to happen again. But the weather can be fickle and not always follow the game plan of a particular interest group. Right when we needed it to help ease the pain and strain, the Russell Winter Carnival was resurrected after a 20-year hiatus. Thanks to the Russell Kin Club and its many partners for the welcome addition to the local recreational calendar; it was obvious from the busy program that it took a Herculean effort to pull it all together. Call me a wimp, but I stuck to the indoor activities. While I don’t deny that we experienced from last Wednesday to Sunday some of the best weather so far this winter, I just don’t trust it. As for outdoor activities such as the Brain Freeze Fishing Derby and the Amazing Race, I settled for drivebys. It all started with an official opening at Russell Meadows Retirement Community last Wednesday. There was wine and cheese and sweet treats for all, along with the piano stylings of young local virtuoso Andrew Watson, not to mention the timely
comments of Russell Township Mayor J.P. St. Pierre who has already announced he’ll seek re-election in the fall. I had to fill up on cheese and sweets because I missed out on the carnival spaghetti dinner at Russell United Church that sold out. I stupidly failed to book my ticket even though co-organizer Eileen Hamelin stopped me on the street to remind me. In addition to the plush surroundings, there’s another great advantage to using the spacious basement meeting room at the Meadows: You have a built-in audience because the seniors living upstairs always come out for whatever event is being hosted down below. Perfect place to hold a political rally, right J.P.? On Thursday, I was able to get into the ham, bean and cupcake supper at St. Mary’s Anglican Church, following up with a return visit to the Meadows, this time for a performance by the Russell Community Concert Band… and more sweets. Conducted by Gilles Lepage, the band presented an hour’s worth of familiar, hum-along standards. Even though it seemed to be well stocked with musical talent, the band is always looking for new members. It meets Thursdays in the music room at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School. I was back into carnival mode on Saturday, dropping by the craft show upstairs at the arena and later, the piece de resistance at Russell High School, the third annual RocKin the Night Away 50s/60s dance. As it has in the past, the popular party featured pink-jacketed, turquoise guitar-playing Eddy and the Stingrays. Eddy announced from the stage the dance and the band will be back for a fourth time in 2015. Buck-toothed trans-species carnival beaver mascot RocKin Russell, who
started out in Waterloo as a groundhog, not only busted some moves on the dance floor, but played back-up fake guitar on stage, much to the dismay of Eddy and the boys. Speaking of busting moves… organic agriculture guru, political animal and golf whiz Tom Manley turns out to be a dance king too! Tom and wife Isabelle drove over from Berwick just to kick up their heels to the sounds of the Stingrays. “We had a great time,” Tom emailed me. “Great music. Lots of triple swing, cha-cha, rumba, two-step, foxtrot and even a waltz.” Somehow, I missed all those dance distinctions. Tom and Isabelle learned ballroom dancing with the Cornwall Carousels which is hosting a series of dance parties and lessons, another way to warm up the winter. All are invited to the next session, triple swing, Feb. 28, 7 p.m., at the Royal Canadian Legion, 415 Second Street W, Cornwall. The fee is $9 per person; details are available by calling Tom at 613-984-0489. My last activity at the 2014 Russell Winter Carnival involved more food – and lots of it – at the Sunday breakfast sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. For $6, my plate was heaped high with pancakes, scrambled eggs, beans, and ham … yet another delightful way to warm up the winter.

Carnival Continued from page 17 Secretary and Treasurer of the Lions, Sylvia Smith stated the club was excited about the prospect of the carnival and being part of a tradition that the Lions were part of so many years ago. Judges Jane Brownrigg, Ann Cloutier and Doug Anthony, after much deliberation, selected singer Camille Beauchamp as the winner of RAPA's Russell's Got Talent. The two-night show had a variety of acts from Katie Papple singing, Megan Bowman performing a martial arts act and broth-
ers Alex and Matthew LeBrun placing second with a vaudeville act. Beauchamp received a 32" TV as her prize, donated by Russell Meadows, who also hosted the opening night, Feb. 5, Mayor's Wine and Cheese and the Feb. 6 performance by the Russell Community Band. Hard to list all that happened, but because of a combination of ideal weather conditions and community involvement, this year’s winter carnival with its sunny skies and cold temperatures made all indoor and outdoor activities well attended until the tent was closed down on Feb. 9.
C a m i l l e Beauchamp won first prize, a 32” TV donated by R u s s e l l Meadows, at the Russell’s Got Talent Winter Carnival Feb. 8.
Russell Lions Club first winner of the Bingo night, held on Feb. 6, was Mary Sinclair.

OTHS Panthers Report Sarah Godey OTHS Guidance Services METCALFE — February is the month of love and valentines and new semesters. Osgoode Township High School (OTHS) Panthers returned for Semester 2, were greeted by individually handwritten love notes taped to every single locker in the school – a very sweet version of a grad prank organized by the Class of 2014. Also, there were more than a few lost students on Day 1 because the Grads very sweetly rearranged the signs on the classroom doors. Yes, we do love our Grads! And, no, the Guidance Department is not the Custodial Office! February is also time for the popular annual Physical Education field trip to Winterlude. Two bus loads of senior students will venture forth to skate the Canal and explore the downtown festivities. After all that skating, sales of hot chocolate and beavertails will undoubtedly be high. Believe it or not, we are
already planning for 201415. Course Option Sheets will soon be given out for the next school year. Guidance Counsellors are happy to meet with any students who have questions about the process. Next fall there will be two new Advanced Placement (AP) courses offered in Calculus and Chemistry. AP French will also continue to be offered. AP courses allow students to earn a university credit while still at high school. Grade 9 students will be able to register for the related Pre-AP Programs in September.

John Crysler Memorial Park: A wonderful wedding venue CRYSLER — Nestled in a beautiful environment along the South Nation River, John Crysler Memorial Park can serve as a one-stop wedding venue offering ample recreation and reception facilities. Owned by the local township but operated by a dedicated cadré of local volunteers, the park’s primary indoor attraction is the 486-seat Crysler Community Centre. But that building has been recently augmented by the construction of a canvascovered “superstructure” that made its debut as a covered natural-ice rink this winter. Come summertime, the 61-by-170-foot space within the rink boards will also be available for receptions and other gatherings. If desired, that new space will link up with the existing hall through a retractable tarp system, allowing access to the main washrooms and the bar inside the older building.
Crysler Community Centre Committee President Pierre Thibault says the liquor licence arrangement permits functions to overflow into the superstructure as part of a single event at the hall. Or the superstructure could be rented and licensed separately for a pair of simultaneous events. “We can do both at the same time, because they’re both different licenses. It’ll be an amazing year coming up,” he says enthusiastically. Also new this year for prospective brides and grooms is the new park gazebo for wedding ceremonies. Recycled from the former St. Albert Cheese factory site, where it previously sat until last year, the large gazebo offers a wonderful North Stormont vista. “Somebody can use the gazebo if they want to get married outside, or use the superstructure if they want a big wedding. The advantage
Ready for wedding receptions, family reunions and other public events, the new Crysler rink facility can be made to adjoin the Crysler Community Centre — creating a very large combined reception area. The operators are also making it available separately, for special events, once the ice comes out this spring. is there, and especially now with the gazebo with all the planted flowers and the overview of the river. I think it will be a bonus for us to have that available for weddings.” Continued on page 3B

Crysler Continued from page 2B The committee is still coming up with a price list for packages covering the use of facilities in combination if desired, and those prices will be competitive, Thibault says. But the committee’s approach is flexible. The happy couple can still rent the basic hall and arrange for everything else at the reception — except the bar, a function exclusively handled by the committee, whose staff are insured and smart-serve certified. “Usually, the couple hires their own wedding planner, and they come in and decorate the way they want it. But we can do that too. It all depends on the kind of package that they want,” explains Thibault. “We can have a package where everything’s ready, if they want to use the hall and superstructure and have a pile of tables in there, and chairs. “And we’ve got a couple of wedding planners that will come in and decorate. They will come in and do their stuff, do their magic. It depends on what they want. We can rent it just as a facility, and that’s it. Or we can also rent it where everything’s pretty well
ready for them.” As a service, the committee will also suggest caterers and wedding planners from the community, though the final choice is up to the renter. “We’ve had quite a few nice weddings last summer, and it was unreal what the hall looked like,” remarks the committee president. The facility typically hosts about 10 weddings a year but hit 14 last year. Five have been booked so far for this summer, he says. “We’ve still got lots of room.” Indoors, the original hall still looks sharp and bright, having been refreshed in 2012 and 2013. Meanwhile, the outdoor amenities, including another set of washrooms by the volleyball courts, are available without need to rent the hall or superstructure. Thibault points out that a couple could tie the knot beneath the sprawling gazebo then go elsewhere for their reception. Renters can have the run of the entire place, too, if they’re looking for a place to stretch their legs in the sunshine. Having undergone about $1.5-million in improvements over the last couple of years, the park is great “not only for
Bridal Supplement Page 3B weddings, but also family reunions,” he points out. “They can rent the whole park if they want, which would give them the gazebo, volleyball court, kids’ play park, soccer/football field, baseball diamond and the superstructure and hall. “So that’s going to invite quite a few people that are looking for big places where ... you’re not just sitting in the hall waiting for the potluck to be done and go home. It will attract the younger generation who have kids and families. They will have something to do, something to play outside.” Sports equipment is also available for use with a rental, he points out. Call Micheline Cleroux (613-987-5551) about renting the hall. Inquire with Thibault about renting the gazebo, park or superstructure facilities at 613-987-2802 (work) or 613-552-2885 (cell).

Wedding day photography is not just a snapshot of the day Limousines, gowns and flowers are each important components of a coupleâ€™s wedding day. But few aspects of a wedding are as important as photography. Thanks to the popularity of social media, some couples may overlook the importance of hiring a professional photographer for their weddings. Although there is something to be said for candid images captured on phones and personal cameras, the pictures a couple will cherish and look back on for decades are best supplied by a professional photographer. Even if you will be hiring a videographer and having photos snapped by loving friends and family, professional wedding photography is an ideal way to immortalize this special day. Most couples say â€œI doâ€? with the hopes of staying together forever, giving them only one chance to capture the magic of the wedding day on film. Leaving photos to chance by hiring an amateur photographer may be something couples regret down the road. Professional photographers use high-quality equipment that will produce much better results than photos snapped on the aver-
age digital camera. Plus, the photographer has experience with posing, placement of arms and legs, head tilting, and lighting, each of which ensures that the photos come out looking as good as possible. While a friend may not notice an eyesore in the rear of a photo composition when taking a picture, a professional may notice something that will stand out and make adjustments. Furthermore, professional photographers tend to have an eye for interesting angles to capture images that may be overlooked. Rather than a series of portraits at one level, he or she may climb high for aerial shots or lie on the floor for a different perspective. The results may be unique vantage points that set your wedding photos apart from those of the masses. Price alone should not dictate which photographer to hire. Although wedding budgets are often stretched, skimping on a photography allotment may result in subpar results. That doesnâ€™t mean you need to hire the most expensive photographer, but couples should realize the value of experience and professional equipment, both of which tend to come at a premium
price. Do not expect to pay package prices that would be offered at department or discount stores. Many photographers are artists who take their work very seriously. A photographer will be spending all day with you capturing hundreds of photos. Each image will then need to be reviewed, repositioned and potentially enhanced or retouched. This time-consuming attention to detail is often what dictates the higher costs of a very good photographer. Keep in mind that photographers are unique individuals and not all the visions and styles of particular artists will meld with your own perception of how you want the wedding to look. Expressing your expectations and comparing your goals with the portfolios of photographers will help you find the best fit. Do not feel shy about asking for testimonials from past customers or talking to couples you know who have recently gotten married and asking for a recommendation. While couples are making wedding day magic, photographers are behind the scenes capturing all of the memories couples can relive for years and years to come.
Explore unique cake flavour combinations A wedding cake is the piece de resistance of the wedding ceremony. Guests anxiously await the unveiling of the cake near the end of the festivities. Modern cakes are showpieces grander in scale than in years past. As bakers and confectioners hone their skills with fondant, buttercream and gum paste even further, the results are often impressive, awe-inspiring cake designs. While the look of a wedding cake is certainly
important, cakes should not only look good, but taste good as well. Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting was once the gold standard. But today's couples are being more adventurous with their wedding cakes and winning rave reviews. One example would be red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. This cake was once a regionally specific staple, but now has grown steadily in popularity across the country,
quickly becoming the new classic, with its vibrant red colour offering a shock of something different. Those who cannot settle on just one flavour can have different flavours on each tier of their cakes. This gives guests some flavourful variety and enables them to pick their favourite flavour combination. Cakes are a part of many special events, but few cakes are fawned over as much as wedding cakes and so provide the couple with an opportunity to spice things up by choosing a nontraditional flavour combination.

Making your wine offers a cost-effective alternative EMBRUN — Wine has been an integral part of celebrations for thousands of years and by making your own wine not only is it economical, but you can customize it for your wedding from rehearsal party to reception. With the guidance of a Master Winemaker, a bride and groom can choose from a selection of premium grapes that are sourced from the world’s best wine regions and most established vineyards, and you cannot start too early, as there are special licenses required by the province, and not every hall or event centre will allow you to bring in your own wine. Research is key before starting to make the wine, which in itself can take up to eight weeks to make. JP Roger, owner of Embrun’s new Wine Garden Warehouse Winery, has been in the wine business for 17 years, helping many clients supply wine at weddings. “If a couple has an idea to serve their own wine, they should start as soon as possible. Not only can wine take several weeks to make, but it needs to be aged, in its bottle, for at
least six months before the big day.” The Wine Garden offers a selection of wines from different regions, but most are from Chile, Argentina and Sicily. The store hopes to expand to Australian and New Zealand wines in the near future. Roger carries four types of ‘quality’ to make the wines: concentrate, juice, premium and real grapes to make Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Clients can either make wine by the bottle or in batches which equal 112 to 280 bottles. Roger notes the bulk production may be more attractive to those planning a large wedding. “Bulk batches are made in stainless steel barrels, which are kept in the store for up to six months, and clients can come in on an as needed basis,” said Roger. “It is cost-effective and can be presented to guests as a ‘favour’, a wedding party gift or kept for an anniversary celebration. Bottles can be bought in the store, for $0.75 per bottle, or supplied by the client but the initial cost of making the
wine does include a basic label and shrink caps. “Clients can return after the fermentation process to bottle and label their own wines, or we can do it in-store,” says Roger. “If a client wishes to have a special label designed for the occasion, that can be done for a small fee, or they can create their own,” said Roger. The store does accept used bottles for return, but with a refund value of only 50 cents and be returned without labels. Although it does take time, Roger notes that the low cost of making your own wine compared to what clients could pay for at a venue is invaluable. “Our wine could cost up to six dollars per bottle plus the eight dollar corking fee. Compare that to the minimum $25 or $30, it just makes good dollar sense —plus our wines are just as good.” The Wine Garden Warehouse Winery has three locations, but each is owned independently. For more information visit the Embrun store at 685 Notre Dame Street, call (613) 443-7773 or visit the website www.thewinegarden.ca.
Premium wine but not a premium price JP Roger, owner of the Wine Garden Warehouse Winery in Embrun, offers up a selection of varieties available to be made by bottle or by batch for your event utilizing state of the art equipment and oak barrel aging. The store opened at the beginning of January.

Saying things with symbolism Symbolic gestures are commonplace during wedding ceremonies.The exchange of rings, stomping on a glass and lighting of candles are each among the various traditions associated with different faiths. Couples who would like to try something a bit different can opt for pouring sand. Choose two different coloured sands and decorative vessels that can hold the sand until a special time in the ceremony. You also will need another large, clear container that will contain the sand once it is poured. A glass vase or heart-shaped vessel works well. To symbolize the joining of two lives together, both the bride and groom can take one of the colours of sand and begin pouring them together into the larger container. The ribbons of sand will join and meld together, much as the coupleâ€™s separate lives will now become one. The finished sand art can be kept on a mantle as a remembrance of the wedding day for years to come. Other gestures could include the bride and groom casting a stone each into a nearby river or ocean - thus symbolising their remaining together forever while the tides of time ebbed and flowed over their lives, or, plant a tree to represent how they will grow together as a couple and a family. A gesture is as individual as the couple themselves.

To buy or to rent: tuxedo procurement pointers Gentlemen getting ready to tie the knot will have to make certain wardrobe choices so they look their best on their big days. Although many grooms-tobe rent tuxedos on their wedding days, it may be more cost effective to purchase a tuxedo. Tuxedos are the ultimate formal wear for men. Worn at formal gatherings like proms, weddings and lavish parties, tuxedos have undergone several style changes over the years. Men interested in looking polished will find no option makes that impression more convincingly than the right tuxedo. Men frequently called upon to attend formal events may find purchasing a tuxedo is a wise investment. There are several advantages to owning a tux rather than renting one time and again. Tuxedos typically cost around $1,000, whereas renting tuxedos can be $200 or more each time, making it advantageous for men who frequently don tuxedos to purchase their own rather than rent. Another advantage to owning a tuxedo is the opportunity to wear a tux that is custom-made and tailored just for you. Instead of a rental that will merely be stitched temporarily to fit your measurements, a tuxedo you purchase will be tailored specifically to your body, increasing comfort and making you look better as well. Men who buy their own tuxedos also can choose the style, fabric, colour, buttons, accessories, and type of lapels on the jacket. A tuxedo store may have more styles available for sale than for rent. If you desire something that fits your personality and your physique perfectly, buying your own
tuxedo may be your best bet. Men worried about purchasing a tuxedo only to see their waistlines increase or decrease should keep in mind that many tuxedo shops offer free tailoring for as long as you own the tuxedo. When purchasing a tuxedo, men should choose classic styles and colours so they can enjoy the tux for years to come. Opt for a slim-fitting white shirt underneath that won’t billow out when jackets are removed. Men who want to break from tradition can opt for a shirt that is a pale blue or light grey to wear under the jacket. This is still an understated look, but one with a hint of creativity.
A classic, black bow tie is an ideal match when purchasing a more classic tuxedo. The bow tie is back in a big way, and men who want to spice things up can purchase more traditional neckties for those occasions when they don’t want to wear bow ties. Tuxedos come with different lapel styles, and it’s important to know the differences. Today’s most popular style is the notch lapel, wherein a triangular indentation is cut where the lapel joins the collar. This lapel mimics the shape of a classic suit.

Adding a taste of sweetness to the wedding Pamela Pearson Russell News Editor RUSSELL — Providing sweet treats, from cinnamon love hearts to lollipops and bon bons, in the form of a wedding favour or table decoration can add a little bit more sweetness to the day. Sweet Xpectations, in Russell, offers a delightfully broad range of everything that you need to help create a wedding or party favour that is the perfect reflection of the couple. The store also offers premade baskets and loot bags. Owner Amy Stackhouse states that a couple can be as creative as they like with candy containers using anything from mason jars and small pails to offering a candy buffet where guests can ladle out small portions. "Colour accents and flavours are unlimited," said Stackhouse. "Brides can have organza bags that match their wedding colours to ordering special
occasion boxes." If a candy buffet will be offered at the wedding to guests, brides can expect to pay $4 and up for 6 oz or 200 grams per person. Sweet Xpectations offers a variety of retro candy as well, from Pez and Lick-a-Stick to Pop Shoppe Pop. "Everyone has their favourites from childhood, and we can provide some of the candies to bring back those memories," said Stackhouse. "The couple should order at least six weeks in advance, especially for large events, as sometimes bringing in speciality items, like gourmet jelly beans, can take that awhile, as they are not locally made." When deciding which candies to purchase, both the bride and groom tastes should be taken into consideration. Pick candy that will complement the dessert or wedding cake being served, and bear in mind that coordinated candy colours look more
effective than a random mismatch of different types of candy. Couples can also choose to have a large martini glass filled with mints as a table centrepiece. Planning also would involve guest dietary and health choices. Providing guests with the option of sugar-free and gluten-free candies offer alternatives to those who could be diabetic or have a gluten intolerance. For those candies that are provided specifically for certain dietary needs, be sure to label them so that all of the guests are aware. The candy buffet is a great wedding favour and all those delicious sweets will leave a lasting memory for your guests to remember. Contact Sweet Xpectations if you are interested in having candy at your wedding. Visit the store at 182 Castor St., Russell or call 613-4960096.

Wine tasting themed wedding adds uniqueness Are you a huge wine enthusiast? Do you want to incorporate wine as a theme in your wedding? Whether you are a wine enthusiast or someone who doesnâ€™t know the difference between a Pinot Noir or Cabernet, you can have a wonderfully unique wine-themed wedding. With a wine tasting theme, you can have a traditional wedding with a formal meal and dancing or you can make the wine tasting the main event with wine and cheese and hors dâ€™oeuvres. Finding the perfect location for a wine tasting themed wedding is as easy as finding a place that you feel comfortable and excited about. You can research your local wineries and see if they will host your wedding ceremony, dinner and reception. Wineries are usually in beautiful countrysides, and most have indoor facilities that can host your wine tasting themed wedding. If you do not live near a winery, there are still several other great ideas to go with this theme. Research local wine-making businesses, restaurants, banquet facilities and caterers, and make sure to ask about their wine selections. You could also host the event at your home or other location where you could bring your
own selections of wines and hors dâ€™oeuvres. A wine tasting themed wedding will definitely create a much more interactive event for all guests and be a new and fun experience for them all. Make sure to pay close attention to your wine tasting celebration with great detail just as the winery would. Include several
selections of both white and red wine and have water or bread to cleanse the palate between tastings. Remember to furnish spittoons for those who want to spit out the wine once itâ€™s tasted. Hire a Sommelier to educate your guests about the wines that are tasting and answer any questions about the proper

techniques to tasting. Always remember to provide other beverages, such as water, beer, or soft drinks, for who do not care for wine. Your wine tasting should be held during the reception and enjoyed with hors dâ€™oeuvres. Include information cards on the hors dâ€™oeuvres table that inform your guests of which go best with the wine that they are tasting. Supply a tasting card for each guest and a pen or pencil, engraved with your bridal names and date, so that they can record which wines that they enjoyed, and have the wedding favour to remember your special day. To carry your wine theme throughout your wedding, use centrepieces and decorations that include beautiful fruits that reflect the flavours of the wines such as grapes, pears, etc. For wedding favours give wine-related momentos to your guests. For instance, a bottle of wine for each couple, a unique corkscrew or wine stopper. Your wine tasting themed wedding can be incorporated into your ceremony and reception creating a wonderful and unique experience for you and your guests that will be remembered for many years to come.
