Bank presents case for Avonmore closure Residents not receptive
Andrew Boyle criticizes Scotiabankâ€™s plan to shut the Avonmore branch, Feb. 13 at North Stormont Place. Zandbergen photo
to Casselman Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff AVONMORE â€” Scotiabankâ€™s planned closure of three rural branches was presented as a near fait accompli by bank officials who faced down a crowd of nearly 250 unhappy people inside North Stormont Place last week. But residents here have vowed to continue the struggle, pointing to their previous successes keeping the Post Office and public school alive in their village. Scotiabank last month announced its intent to shut the branches in Avonmore, Maxville, and St. Isidore, to be replaced by a new and bigger branch in Casselman this fall. An architectural drawing of that planned facility flanked Karine Abgrall, Scotiabankâ€™s St. Lawrence District Vice-President, as she stood at the podium and extolled the Casselman amalgamation scheme during the Feb. 13 session â€” hosted by the bank and billed as a â€œdiscussionâ€? about the future of the Avonmore branch. In an era of directdeposit pay cheques, banking machines and online and telephone

banking, todayâ€™s clientele approaching the bank counter â€œare expecting us to deliver advice, and the best advice possible, and the best customer service possible,â€? explained Abgrall. â€œAnd thatâ€™s what we want to provide in our Casselman branch.â€? Scotiabank currently lacks market presence in Casselman, she said, describing that reality as a â€œbig gapâ€? in the bankâ€™s Eastern Ontario footprint and â€œcertainly hurtingâ€? the institution. She added, â€œAnd thatâ€™s where we decided to move the Maxville, Avonmore and St. Isidore branches, to get those three families [of staff] coming together [in Casselman].â€? Staff at the existing branches will have jobs at the new site. Combined,
they will better cope â€œand leverage off one anotherâ€? to meet customer expectations of specialized financial advice, asserted Abgrall, who also highlighted expanded hours of operation â€” open weekday evenings and Saturdays â€” â€œjust not possibleâ€? at the current branches. â€œOur people in Casselman will be the people serving you here, they will be the faces that have served you for years, the faces that you love, that you have known,â€? she said, arguing the commitment to those local employees was tantamount to staying in the hamlet. â€œSo itâ€™s not leaving. We are remaining in the community because theyâ€™ll be here. Theyâ€™ll still be

Avonmore Scotiabank Continued from the front involved in the matching funds program â€Ś because itâ€™s really just a question of being a few more minutes away. It is a change but we want to be still in the community with you. We want â€Ś the privilege of still having your business, and we understand this is a change, and we are doing this in terms of future and ensuring that we have a stronger, better brand, so that Scotiabank can still be there to support the growth in the greater area.â€? When challenged by more than one member of the audience on whether the bank was effectively consulting the public after making a decision, Abgrall struck a slightly less definitive tone by describing the plan as â€œbeing finalizedâ€? but not yet â€œfinal.â€? She said, â€œI want to make sure I have all the information in hand when we are finalizing our plan. So far, the information we have is leading us to Casselman, but again, I canâ€™t make any promises. So far the information we have is leading to Casselman.â€? Jim Wert, member of a local committee that has sprung up in response to the bankâ€™s announcement, was first to take the microphone when the floor opened to questions. Directing his comments to Abgrall â€” who stood and faced the audience for more than an hour of grilling â€” Wert recalled past campaigns that staved off the closures of Avonmoreâ€™s other institutions. â€œI think itâ€™s only appropriate that we should tell you that youâ€™re in for a battle here. The school is still open. As a matter of fact itâ€™s expanding this summer, and the post office is still going. So we give you fair warning.â€? â€œTonight weâ€™re faced with another challenge that can be another success story if we work together. Because we feel right now that the path weâ€™re on, isnâ€™t going to be a win-win situation for either of the parties involved, our community, or your bank â€Ś The dairy farmer also highlighted Scotiabankâ€™s multi-generation, 113-year presence in the community and requested that Abgrall commit to asking her Senior Vice-President superior at the bank to â€œreassess the situationâ€? â€” but didnâ€™t seem to get it. 85 per cent will pull funds Brandishing his first Avonmore Bank of Nova Scotia passbook from 1948, Murray Barkley brought the results of a secret-ballot poll held over several days at various businesses in Monkland and Avonmore, including his historic family store located across the street from the current branch. â€œAnd Barkleyâ€™s is
staying,â€? he said, as the crowd applauded. According to the poll, which asked respondents a single question on where they would bank if leaves Scotiabank Avonmore, 85 per cent indicated their intention to switch to a competitor â€” a result that gave Barkley â€œno pleasure to report.â€? â€œEleven per cent would continue [with Scotiabank], and four per cent would go to Casselman over their dead bodies,â€? he said of the remainder, sparking more laughter and loud applause. â€œSome will accept the transfer to Casselman to avoid mortgage-breaking penalties and legal fees,â€? he explained. â€œThereâ€™s always some customer retention, but it appears as if the overwhelming majority, regretfully, will walk.â€? Barkley suggested the losses would be more than the bank anticipated, and he noted the proximity of the BMO branch in Finch and TD Bank in Chesterville. The minority choosing to stick with Scotiabank would likely go to branches in Cornwall and Chesterville, he said. â€œCertainly not Casselman.â€? Abgrall later acknowledged her bank â€œrealizes youâ€™re not all going to be going to Casselman, and youâ€™ve made that very clear tonight. Weâ€™re hoping that other of our branches may serve to meet your needs. Weâ€™re hoping that 113 years will count in the future even though weâ€™ll be a bit further away because we would still like to service this community.â€? â€œI understand that youâ€™ll possibly change your mind and go to another institution,â€? she also conceded at one point. â€œAnd again, I canâ€™t twist your arm, and whatever you guys decide to do is going to be up to you. What weâ€™re saying is we still want to be part of this community.â€? Distance Barkley was also among those who questioned Abgrallâ€™s assertion that Avonmore lies 20 km and a 14-minute drive from Casselman, observing the distance to be 24 km, or 48 km for the return trip home. Another man calculated the combined extra distance travelled by the displaced branch customers at 1.25 million km per year â€” based on 100 trips into Casselman on any given day â€” equivalent to going around the world 30 times. â€œI feel certain that Scotiabank does not want to be on the wrong side of global warming,â€? he chastised the bankers at the front of the room, where Chesterville and Avonmore branch manager Charles Leclair and Atlantic and Quebec Regions Field Operations Manager Jean Forest also sat at a table
beside the podium. Thirty-two-year Avonmore Scotiabank customer George Velema said, â€œI cannot, will not, go to Casselman.... because I do not do any business in Casselman.â€? Though he planned to remain a Scotiabank client, â€œI would have to go to Cornwall,â€? he said. Added Velemena, â€œThe assumption here is that bigger, newer is better. And I would submit that small is, and can be, efficient and beautiful.â€? Divorce, cultural divide Terry McRae likened the move to a divorce, but Abgrall countered with a positive familial metaphor. â€œWeâ€™re sort of seeing it as three families becoming one, rather than a divorce,â€? she said, while the audience murmured with disapproval. Andrew Boyle questioned the wisdom of relocating the branch to Casselman, a community already â€œsaturatedâ€? with three other banking competitors. â€œAll we can see is that youâ€™re chasing some young, new Franco-Ontario Ottawa community bedroom market,â€? Boyle bluntly observed, the room exploding into applause at the statement. He scoffed: â€œYou somehow believe that market is penetrable, that youâ€™re somehow going to go in and convince them, after having had a great relationship with their banks â€Ś to change and come to you, which I would hazard a guess is not going to happen.... â€œThe data on which youâ€™ve based your decision is inaccurate and incomplete,â€? he declared, having also recounted how Scotiabank moved a key business as well as farm accounts out of the Avonmore branch several

years ago. â€œYouâ€™ve hollowed out the best financial resources in our community,â€? he alleged, â€œand then [you] say the remaining show is unworthy of your presence, when you are still profitable â€Ś and local investment is on the upswing here.â€? Boyle further criticized Scotiabank for â€œchasing a market that is not only headed this way, but is actually starting to arrive in Avonmore.â€? The bankâ€™s decision â€œdoes not make any sense. Itâ€™s not what you do to friends, neighbours or community,â€? he added. Abgrall replied there had been a decline in business at the Avonmore branch â€” though she wouldnâ€™t disclose figures. â€œOur data and business case has been looked and re-looked and turned upside down,â€? she said, insisting, â€œThe data is good.â€? Maxvilleâ€™s Sharon Johns â€” unable to attend a similar meeting in her own community â€” also touched on the cultural divide and expressed skepticism about employing in Casselman unilingual English staff from Maxville and Avonmore. â€œWhere is the common sense in this?â€? she asked.

Seniors Johns also noted a lack information on of accommodating senior customers who donâ€™t drive and donâ€™t do telephone or Internet banking. Abgrall responded the bank would sit down with senior customers to â€œcreativelyâ€? address their requirements. On the language front, she noted that most of the Scotiabank tellers involved are bilingual, â€œaside for a few that are already asking to learn to speak French.â€? But she also assured the Casselman branch will indeed employ some unilingual English staff, â€œto be reflective of the customer base that we have.â€? ATM alone inadequate Annette McRae highlighted her familyâ€™s long loyalty to Scotiabank in Avonmore and panned the notion of leaving behind an automated teller machine (ATM) in the community. A machine canâ€™t deliver large denomination bills, U.S. currency, rolls of change, bank drafts, or safety deposit boxes, observed
McRae, who listed some of these as necessities for her business. â€œAn ATM is not a replacement, itâ€™s not even a substitute for our bank, that has a heart and a soul, a memory and a history created by the people who work there now and before. Avonmoreâ€™s loyalty and generations of customers deserves better, â€œ she added. â€œScotiabank in Avonmore, weâ€™ve worked well together for a long, long time. I hope your final decision will reflect your desire to continue that tradition right here in Avomore, with us.â€? From the side of the room, Sean Mullin made his point by holding up a tablet showing a recent news story about Scotiabankâ€™s record $1.5-billion profit in the fourth quarter of 2012. â€œIt wouldâ€™ve been nice to get a little notice before they made a decision,â€? remarked Mullin afterward. â€œIt sounds like theyâ€™ve made up their mind.â€? The Finch resident said he would switch to the BMO branch located across the street from his home.

Porta Rack could soon top campersâ€™ laundry list Lois Ann Baker Record Staff CHESTERVILLE â€“ They say necessity is the mother of invention. This is certainly the case when a local man came up with a new way for campers to hang out their clothes and towels to dry. Louis Larabie and his wife, Gladys were camping with friends when they noticed almost every campsite had a string hung between trees to hang wet clothes. Further to that, they noticed the kids running around the haphazardly placed lines and couldnâ€™t help but think of the possibility of an accident. Not too long after that fateful day, most campsites banned campers from putting up clothes lines making it difficult for campers to dry wet bathing suits and towels. â€œYou know what, I said to Gladys, there must be a way to create a clothes line or rack on the RV,â€? said Larabie. That evening, while Gladys was making supper, Larabie drew up a design on paper, transferred it to cardboard and tested it on his camper. Enter the Porta Rack. Larabie invented a simple, one-piece apparatus that quickly attaches to the ladder of any camper for the purpose of drying clothes. After he came home, he showed a friend his design and they made a wooden prototype. Interest in the Porta Rack grew among friends and neighbours. Larabie said he was told to have the idea patented, and took it to his lawyer. As luck would have it, his lawyerâ€™s brother-in-law worked in the patent office. After three or four days, the patent lawyer said he could not find any instances of this design anywhere and advised Larabie to go ahead with the patent. He expects to be fully patented by July

in both Canada and the United States. A friend took a Porta Rack down south and showed it around and the idea was picked up by a distributor. Currently there are 250 Porta Racks on the mar-
ket. A contract was drawn up and Larabie is waiting for the final signatures before he can take the idea to its next stage, production. Wanting to keep the production in Chesterville,
Larabie first approached Dino Paulouis of Louisâ€™ Restaurant about the vacant building housed between The Record and the restaurant. Renovations began, but were quickly halted when it was discovered the building
was zoned retail commercial and Larabie needed an industrial zoning. North Dundas did not agree to
change the zoning due to excessive noise the small manufacturing plant would put out and the number of tractor-trailers that would block traffic on the at-times busy street. After a quick search of the area, Larabie settled on space in the Curran Carpet building on Industrial Road. Larabie is just waiting for the final signatures to be in place before he brings in the equipment needed to start up production, which he expects to be any day now. Once production has begun and the $100,000 machine needed to produce his rack is purchased, Larabie expects to be hiring two or three employees. â€œThey want a minimum of 9,000 in three months,â€? said Larabie, â€œAnd then from there to December 2014, they want 250,000.â€? â€œAfter that, they predict probably one million in three to four years, and it goes from there,â€? said Larabie. Everything about the rack has been produced or bought in Ontario, up to and including the packaging and Larabie wants it to be advertised as made in Chesterville. To see an example of his rack visit his website at portarack.ca.

Whatever happened to Reasonable? Recent incidents like a high school student not being allowed to wear a kilt to his prom, or the recent hurdles needed in regards to licensing and regulationpractices, demonstrate that the influence of decision makers is becoming less and less credible. Are kilts so rarely seen that a traditional ceremonial dress is deemed unsuitable and a boy is told to dress normally? Are the roads so different in the United States that a special international driver’s license is now needed for Canadians to drive to Florida? Luckily these stories make the news so we can see how obtuse some decisions are. I am confident the kilt will be worn, and the Canadian Automobile Association says it has been assured by the official of that state, the legislation has been amended to exclude Canadians and that law enforcement authorities do not intend to actively enforce the new rule. Most of us would benefit from studying the rules of the road again, but it is not like the Sunshine State rule was really aimed at Canadians. And don’t get this writer started on the interprovincial lincensing of “professionals” which has gotten to the point where it is so expensive, time consuming, and unnecessary that we are losing qualified workers because of the red tape hoop jumping necessary to be certified as employable. Some rules which have been imposed on members of the public almost seem insignificant when compared with the hurdles one must face as a result of the ever-sprawling output of our regulatory bodies. Those who grew up on farms only a few decades ago find most of these licenses, certifications and miscellaneous accreditations downright laughable. In the days when it was a significant amount of time to travel to the nearest town, it wasn’t likely that a farmer would wait 24 hours to have a licensed mechanic come to repair equipment sitting in a half-plowed field. Instead, hard earned experience, intuition and a buddy down the road performed the repairs. Fast-forward to today’s untrusting environment: government, businesses and individuals alike contribute to the red tape that strangles the ability to innovate, create, produce, and now travel. It seems that some people just like micromanaging things. They either have too much time on their hands, they were burnt somehow, or they are exploiting power to justify a job that doesn’t need to exist. Sadly, once the job is created, the work becomes self-justifying and just ends up adding to the burden in time and money. So we come back to the perfect example of society’s tendency to be less radical and for faceless decision makers to hide behind the thickening red tape of bureaucratic indecision. The instance of a kilt-wearing teenager, told to ‘dress like a man’, and his nontraditional menswear that broke school policy is ridiculous. I guess to honour one’s heritage, which was the purpose of the kilt, can, like many other ridiculous micromanagement instances, only be done if one applies that strip of red tape across ones chest like a scarlet letter.

1983 February 23, 1983 A coffer dam, constructed in the South Nation River in Chesterville last week, averted a possible shut down of the Nestle factory when a water shortage was caused by a mild spell last week. The problem occurred, explained South Nation River Conservation Authority general manager, Jim Windsor, when an unusual amount of chunk ice floated down river toward the dam during a temporary melt last week. The ice, which was too plentiful to fit through the opening in the dam, began to pile at the dam. public school SD&G superintendent Jean Camtois got a message from parents of junior students at Chesterville Public School last Wednesday-save the school’s extended French program. At a meeting with Mr. Comtois, school board trustee Lorne Thompson and about 30 parents of students in grades one and two at Chesterville Public School (CPS) the parents made it clear they want the extended French program, which gives grade one and two pupils an extra 20 minutes of French per day, to stay and continue to other grades.
February 19, 1953 Farmers wishing to sell cattle to the American market have been unable to have the cattle tested for export. With a view to clarifying the matter, a call was made to Dr. Herb Hannam, president of the Federation of Agriculture. His reply has been received by Allison Graham, pastpresident of the Ontario Milk Producers Association and the reason for the hold-up in testing is as follows: The embargo on cattle going to USA points because of hoof and mouth disease in Canada last year has not been lifted. It is presumed it will be lifted on March 1, but the Dominion Government has not yet received official word to that effect. As a result, the Canadian Government cannot instruct her veterinarians to begin testing for export. It would be a presumption to do so before word has been sent from Washington to the effect the embargo will go off on March 1. There is a possibility cattle tested for export and showing a date prior to the lifting of the ban on their certificates, might be refused crossing permits.

Although the assassin missed the target for which he was aiming, he wounded five persons with first shots from his gun before a woman destroyed his aim by grabbing his wrist and a Miami policeman felled him to the ground with his night stick. Fred Dagenais, a member of the Chesterville Senior Hockey Club a few years ago, died at his home near Morewood on Sunday night. Mr. Dagenais was a son of Mr. And Mrs. John Dagenais, and was very popular in local hockey circles. He was a mainstay of the championship junior hockey team at Morwood before he entered the senior ranks. He had suffered some time from diseased tonsils and a siege of double pneumonia proved too great for his system.

Township discusses hiring bylaw enforcement officer Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff â€“ WINCHESTER Should North Dundas take the ticket book away from its municipal neighbour and cease contracting bylaw enforcement services from Russell? North Dundas Planning Director Calvin Pol raised the idea of moving the chore in-house, as part of a new full-time position that would also entail some building inspection duties. Compelling the Feb. 5 discussion was the recent retirement of North Dundasâ€™s â€œhighly qualifiedâ€? long-time deputy Chief Building Official, who had assisted Chief Building Official Greg Trizisky on a part-time basis for a decade.
That leaves only Trizisky as qualified to sign a building permit in North Dundas at this point. â€œWeâ€™re in a difficult position,â€? Pol said. He suggested the proposed combined role â€“ bylaw enforcement and building inspector â€” could fill the gap as well as end the need to contract with bylaw Russellâ€™s enforcement department at an annual cost of $20,000 plus mileage. Those savings could go toward the new personâ€™s salary. Alternatively, he said, council could leave the arrangement with Russell in place and attempt to fill the building-inspection shortfall by: finding another qualified individual and
contracting as needed with them; hiring as needed a consulting firm specializing in building inspection services; or sharing building inspection services with n e i g h b o u r i n g municipalities. Pol noted that qualified building inspectors are increasingly rare and are highly mobile, making more difficult the prospect of contracting with somebody part-time again. â€œThey are getting harder and harder to find. The pool of people is shrinking,â€? he said also pointing out that recent retirees are harder to lure into part-time work because of the latest changes to the Ontario Building Code requiring officials to pass yet another round of
examinations. Council seemed to lean in favour of establishing the proposed new position, with an eye to hiring and training a younger individual and stipulating they stay with the township for a minimum period. â€œThis is something we should be looking at,â€? said Deputy Mayor Gerry Boyce. â€œI think itâ€™s necessary that we look at the option,â€? agreed Councillor Tony Fraser. Councillor Al Armstrong observed of the proposed position: â€œWeâ€™re really setting somebody up to be really disliked.â€? â€œIt is a difficult role, thereâ€™s no doubt about it,â€? replied Pol.
Finch resident sentenced
Finch pled guilty to the charge after he was caught at his home after an undercover OPP investigation in February found computers and external media with graphic. When released, he will be on probation for two years and will have a three year ban on attending public places where children under 16 may be
present. Foley also must provide a DNA sample and have his name on the National Sex Offender Registry for 20 years.
Chesterville was later found on Baker Road. On Feb. 3, OPP responded to a call that a 2006 blue Chevy Impala was missing from the restaurant parking lot and the next day were called to a vehicle fire on Baker Road in North Dundas. OPP officers discovered the vehicle to be the same one stolen the previous day from the restaurant parking lot. The investigation is ongoing.
NORTH STORMONT â€“ A 53-year-old North Stormont man will be spending nine months behind bars after he was sentenced in a Cornwall court of possessing child pornography. John Foley of

While acknowledging the need to find a new as â€œvery inspector important,â€? Armstrong stressed the need to know the total costs of the endeavour and suggested a newly minted building inspector would have to be compelled to stay with the
township for a minimum of two years. â€œCertainly, we already do this with doctors,â€? he observed, referring to a program that sees the township pay off some doctorsâ€™ student debt in return for a commitment to stay in North Dundas.

SNC-DeltaWaterfowl Banquet Raising funds for the watershed The popular South Nation/Delta Waterfowl Banquet is returning March 2nd for a fifth year to Finch Community Centre, the objective being to raise funds to promote responsible hunting and conservation in the 4,000 square-km South Nation River watershed. Delta Waterfowl is a North America-wide organization dedicated to informed, controlled hunting and to conserving wetlands for breeding. In partnership with South Nation Conservation, Delta is working to gain new members, said banquet organizer and SNC Resource Technician Ryan
Robson. Robson said funds raised last year through ticket sales as well as live and silent auctions supported the annual Youth Hunt. The Youth Hunt is designed to introduce young people with little or no previous experience to responsible hunting. The banquet begins with social time at 5 p.m. followed by a beef and chicken dinner at 6 p.m. Tickets are $35 for youth, $50 for adults, $75 a couple, and $1,000 for a sponsor table of eight. A variety of items will be up for grabs in the silent and live auctions. All ticket purchasers will
get a one-year membership in Delta Waterfowl and four issues of the organizationâ€™ magazine. Participants are encouraged to bring along non-perishable items for the local food bank for a chance at a special prize. The organization and the event are endorsed by SNC. A portion of money raised will go to the Delta main office for programs such as Adopt a Pothole, hen houses, predator management and general conservation policy implementation.

DFA board, 2013 The Dundas Federation of Agriculture held its annual general meeting in the agricultural room at the Nelson LaPrade Centre, Feb. 13, and officially inaugurated the 2013 board of directors â€“ split equally between North Dundas and South Dundas representatives. Front, from left, Deborah Patenaude (North Dundas), President Jackie Pemberton, and John Roosendaal (North Dundas). Back, from left: Alvin Runnalls (North Dundas), Tom MacGregor (North Dundas), Bernard van der Zweep (South Dundas), William Martens (South Dundas) and Stephen Mellon. Absent: Vice-President Marty Derks and Warren Schneckenburger (South Dundas). According to Pemberton, total membership in the DFA has been dropping by about 15 annually â€“part of the ongoing trend of fewer farmers and bigger farms â€“ and this year is no exception.

Cumberland Bandits @ North Dundas Rockets Wed. Feb. 20, 8:20 p.m.
Sixteen to two? Winchester faces sweep at hands of Casselman WINCHESTER— How do you explain a 16-2 playoff loss in front of your hometown fans? Did the meteorite that raced across Siberian skies Friday cause mass amnesia among the Winchester Hawks in their semifinal divisional playoff game against the first-place Casselman Vikings on Feb. 15? Or are the Vikings just that much better than the Hawks? Whatever it was it had to be other-worldly to result in a game that saw the Vikes score 13 power play goals and referee Mark Featherstonhaugh hand out 22 misconducts, including 11 game misconducts in a wild third period that degenerated into Friday Night at the Fights after the Vikings had taken a 4-1 lead early in the third on their third power play goal of the game. When it was over, Featherstonhaugh had assessed 10 misconducts and one game misconduct to the Vikes and 10 game misconducts and one 10minute misconduct to the Hawks. Winchester’s Adrian Lee was the leader in the penalty parade with three game misconducts. Teammates Dustin Tinkler, Brandon Belding and Brett Sharples each had two and Brandon Pantaleo had one. Adam Beverage picked p a 10-minute misconduct with 5:54 left when he tangled with the Vikes’ Miguel Laurin, who also picked up
a 10-minute misconduct. The Vikings opened the playoffs with a 6-1 win over the Hawks the night before in Casselman. Casselman 6 Winchester 1 Taylor Widenmaier led the way in the series opener, Feb. 14 in Casselman, with four goals, including a natural hat trick, as the Vikes built up a 5-1 lead after one and closed out the scoring on Widenmaier’s fourth goal of the game at 15:19 of the third. Pantaleo had the only Winchester goal, on a Hawks’ power play. Widenmaier scored bothof the Vikes’ power play goals. The third period Thursday night gave an indication of what might be coming the next time the two teams faced each other as referee Peter Bowen handed out 22 penalties in the final 20 minutes. Casselman 16 Winchester 2 Curtis Chennette led the Vikes Friday night with five points on a goal and four assists. Taylor Widenmaier added to his team-leading goal total with three more and Jody Sullivan had three. Miguel Laurin, Damien Charette and Devin Desnoyers each had two. Sylvain Quesnel, Chennette, Kyle Beauchamp-Lalonde and Joel Adam each had one. Widenmaier scored his third on a Viking power play with
40 seconds remaining as Casselman kept up the pressure until the final buzzer Josh Stubbings, shorthanded, and Beveridge each had a goal for the Hawks. Goaltender Mikael Dion was replaced by Matt Kingston with 8:10 left in the game and the Vikes up 9-1 before it finished 16-2. Casselman 3 Wincehster 2 (OT) Game three was back in Casselman on Feb. 17. The Hawks put together a much better effort as they battled back from a 2-0 first-period deficit, with a pair of goals in the second and held on to force overtime. Wensink and Marc-Andre Quann had the first two for Casselman, while Stubbings and Daniel Butchart, on the powerplay, had the Hawks’ markers. After neither team found the winner in the first overtime period, the Vikings found themselves on a power play in the second extra frame. Taylor Widenmaier continued his dominance during the series with the winner as the Vikings are now one game away from moving on after the 3-2 win. This Week Game four was played last night in Winchester and game five will be played Feb. 21 in Casselman, game six in Winchester on Feb. 22 and game seven t will be played in Casselman Feb. 24. Games five-seven are all if necessary.

Rockets end season with win; will face Bandits in first round of NCJHL playoffs VANKLEEK HILL— The North Dundas Rockets wrapped up the regular season with a win over the Vankleek Hill Cougars on Feb. 16 in Vankleek Hill. The win not only gave the Rockets momentum heading into their first-round series with the Cumberland Bandits, but also helped them avoid a match with top-ranked St. Isidore. The Cougars took the lead in the first, but North Dundas came back with three goals in the second. Vankleek Hill also netted
two in the period and the game was all tied at three with 20 minutes to play. In the third, the Rockets got a pair of goals that lifted them to the 5-4 win. Michel Thurler led the way for the Rockets who dressed only nine skaters. Thurler had a hat trick and assisted on the other two goals scored by Ryan Romans. Brandon Buma, Chris Embury and Brent Simms each had a pair of assists and Pete KleinSwormink also picked up an assist. Brendan Chilton earned the win in the
Rockets net. The Rockets now get set to open the playoffs against Cumberland. The Bandits (24-6-4) finished second overall in the standings 35 points ahead of the Rockets (8-25-1).

Eastern Warriors win provincial gold Tristan Larocque scored the only goal and Kyle Kluke picked up his fifth shut out in six games as the Eastern Warriors blanked the Innisfail Impact 1-0 in the second game of their double knockout championship series to win the provincial Midget Boys broomball crown here on the weekend of Feb. 8 – 10. The Warriors lost their only game of the tournament to Innisfail, 2-1 in overtime during the preliminary round, meaning they would have to defeat the Impact twice in the finals to win the provincial gold, a medal they had
been chasing for three years. And they did just that, winning the opener of the championship series 2-0 on goals by Tyson Lafave and Joe McLean and Kluke’s flawless netminding. Brad Nicola and Kyle Como each scored to give the Warriors a 2-0 win over the Mildmay Mustangs in their first game of the tournament and they followed that up with a 5-0 win over the Windsor Renegades in game two. Scoring for the Warriors were Lafave, with two, Nicola, Austin Hendley and Matt Burns. Brock Corry got the
equalizer to send their next game into overtime but it wasn’t enough as Innisfail triumphed 2-1 to win the first of what would be the teams’ three match-ups in the tournament. Nicola scored the only goal of the game as the Warriors blanked the Windsor Devils 1-0 in their fourth game to pave the way to the final against Innisfail. Earning assists on the Warriors’ 12 tournament goals were Daniel Bennett, Dylan Edwards, Cedric Henrie, Brock Corry, Joe Mclean, Tristan Larocque and Tyson Lafave.

Devils dash Warriors repeat aspirations AVONMORE— Two of the top basketball teams in the area met up on Feb. 6 in Avonmore as the Tagwi Warriors hosted the North Dundas Devils in senior boys action. The Devils came into the game missing a pair of players in Robbie Kerr and Chris Neil. Still, they got a total team effort, led by strong individual performances from Wes Schmidtke and Bruce Bufton and left town with a 53-17 win. On the other side of the ball, the Warriors shooters went quiet. Jose Elisalde and Connor MacLeod led the team in points, but were each held under 10 by the Devils’ defence. North Dundas also managed to hold five of the eight Warriors players off the score sheet entirely. “Considering we were without Kerr and Neil we did well,” remarked Devils coach Deanna CorbettWhite. NDDHS 53 Tagwi 17 North Dundas took control from the onset led by a six-point first quarter from Schmidtke. Bufton also sank a pair of shots and the Devils limited the Warriors to just two baskets and led 12-4. Schmidtke continued to dominate in the second quarter adding another eight points to his total. Bufton knocked down a three and
the Devils went three-forthree at the free-throw line. Elisalde tried to rally the Warriors with a pair of buckets, but the team went 0-4 at the charity stripe and trailed 30-8 at recess. The Devils continued to make their free throws count in the third, as Bufton was perfect going 4-4. The Warriors again could only knock down a pair of shots and it was North Dundas up 40-12 heading to the fourth. Connor MacLeod led a fourth-quarter charge for the Warriors as he put up five of his seven points in the game. However, North Dundas continued to be deadly from the line adding five more free throws. The Devils never let the Warriors get close and pulled out the 5317 win. “The game did not go as well as we wanted, North Dundas showed up and we really did not,” said Warriors coach Rob Stein. Schmidtke finished with a game-high 16-points. Bufton added 14 and went 7-8 at the line. Elisalde knocked down a team-high eight for the Warriors. NDDHS 60 Tagwi 19 The two teams met again on Feb. 13 at North Dundas, as the Warriors look for a split of the home-and-home in a playoff match between the two. The Demons defence came out of the blocks on
fire and was ready to shut down the Warriors. North Dundas held Tagwi off the board in the first. At the other end of the court, the Devils took advantage of the chances from the free-throw line and paced themselves to a 15-0 lead. Schmidtke was again dominant with nine points in the quarter. Jamie Maclam tried to rally the Warriors in the sec-

Tagwi 1 RO 2 Earlier in the day, the Warriors took on a strong side from RO. This match went the distance with each team taking a set before a tiebreaker was needed. RO opened with a narrow 25-23 win, but Tagwi came back and took the second set 2515. However, it was RO who prevailed in the third with a 25-17 victory. North Dundas 2 Seaway 0

North Dundas only surrendered seven points in the second as they won 257. North Dundas 0 RO 2 The junior Devils concluded their day against RO. Much like Tagwi, they could not solve the Lancers. RO took the first set 25-23 and followed it up with a 25-17 win in the second. The junior Devils finished the day 2-4 overall. Tagwi 2 Seaway 0 The final game of the day, on the junior side, saw the Warriors take on Seaway. While this game was close, it ultimately went the way of the Warriors. Tagwi took the opener 25-20 and finished off Seaway with a 25-21 win in the second set. Tagwi’s junior team finished the day 5-2 overall.

ond as he put up seven points. However, the Devils spread the ball around and added another eight to lead 23-8 at the half. North Dundas did a good job of containing Tagwi’s Elisalde and, by limiting his chances, they were able to keep the points flowing on offence. North Dundas added 13 in the third frame and led 36-15 with one to
loss. North Dundas took the opener by the close margin of 25-23, but Tagwi came back and captured the second 25-19. In an abbreviated third set, it was North Dundas who pulled through with a 15-12 win. Tagwi 0 RO 2 Tagwi’s earlier matchup was against RO. The RO
program looks to be in great shape as they took this game two sets to none. Their first set win was by a score of 25-14. Tagwi made it close in the second, but still fell 25-21. North Dundas 0 Seaway 2 In the Devils second match, they took a 2-0 loss at the hands of Seaway. The Devils stayed with Seaway in the first set only losing 25-23, but took a lop-sided defeat in the second 25-8. North Dundas 0 RO 2

WCC hoping provincial success helps membership Darren Matte Record Sports WINCHESTERâ€” The Winchester Curling Club has had a strong season in terms of results. The club has seen their junior girls squad head to provincials, their senior womenâ€™s team will be heading to provincials at the end of February, their senior mixed team, made up of Gary Price, Janet Thompson, Don MacMillan and Anne Cook, will represent the district at the upcoming Ontario Senior Games in Huntsville, Feb. 26-28 and they saw their senior menâ€™s team compete in the Strathcona Cup. With all of these competitions, third-year club president Michel St. Marseille is hopeful it will lead to a higher membership at the club and help the club gain more of a regional identity. â€œAs a club we are always pleased with team results. We are happy that the teams do well and represent the club and community at the same time.â€? The junior girls team, comprised of Cassandra Ragnold, Natalie Gagnon, Jordan Mark and Morgan Steele represented the club Jan. 2-6 at the Provincial Championships in London. They qualified for the event in early December when they went 2-1 at Regionals in Carp. Their only loss in that competition was to the eventual provincial champions from Manotick. At
Provincials, they ran into an injury to their skip, which dropped them out of contention. Still, one member came away with some hardware as Mark was awarded the eventâ€™s Sportsmanship Award. The senior women will take part in Provincials from Feb. 20-24 in Ajax. They won the B side of Regionals held Jan. 20 in Napanee, beating: West Ottawa, Napanee and Rideau in the finals. Their team is made up of Janet LaPierre, Janet Levere, Wendy Casselman and Janet Thompson. St. Marseille is hopeful that the recent results can help boost the clubâ€™s membership. â€œI certainly hope it will. We need to remember that we have a lot of members from all over the area like Chesterville, Finch and Morewood. We are continuing our efforts to expand fur-
ther into those areas because there simply arenâ€™t that many clubs in the area. We want to see just how far we can reach.â€? Membership for the club seems to be results and publicity oriented. St. Marseille recalls how the membership grew after curling made its return as a medal sport at the 1998 Olympics. â€œIt increased for a period of time after the 1998 Olympics. We are hoping that people will come out and try the sport, based on the clubâ€™s reputation. We hope we can attract people looking for something active to do.â€? The current membership is not where is should be according to St. Marseille. â€œWe have struggled over the last few years and are actively trying to recruit. We do have a huge youth pool with 25 youths registered in our
Little Rocks program. However, for a three ice sheet club we should be around 300 members and we are currently just over 100. That is why we want to reach out to the surrounding communities and let everyone know that they can play and join the club.â€? Even with the membership concern, St. Marseille is happy with what the positive results by the clubâ€™s teams say about the club itself. â€œIt says we have a good foundation and really good volunteers. We take that to heart and try to use it to promote the club. We promote around it being recreational, way to meet people and have fun, but we do have a serious side and if someone shows the effort and ability they will get the opportunity to compete outside the club.â€? The club celebrated some recent events including the Merkley Cup, a competition between Winchester, Russell, Metcalfe and Morrisburg, on Feb. 16 as well as the Ran Wylie Little Rocks Bonspeil on Feb. 17.

Community strikes again for Big Brothers Big Sisters CHESTERVILLE â€” Thanks to the efforts of over 1,000 bowlers in this village and Cornwall, the Tim Hortons Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake raised over $64,000 this year â€” $8,000 alone from 20 teams that played Feb. 10 at Chesterville Bowling Lanes. Chestervilleâ€™s tally was about 60 per cent higher than last year, bucking an overall decline in total dollars collected at the biggest annual fundraiser put on by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District. â€œWe are down a little bit this year,â€? confirmed Megan Thomlison, event organizer and caseworker with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS). Thomlison said she expected the total to rise into the $70,000 range with the additional proceeds of a related â€œwee fundraiser bowlingâ€? involving Cornwall schools. Last year â€™s combined sum was $76,000. The 2013 edition kicked off Feb. 2, in Cornwall, where 202 teams â€” 37 of
them new â€” participated. Chesterville Bowling Lanes saw a doubling in the number of teams the following weekend.
Many families, and businesses organizations return to bowl for the event every year. With the closure of several

large employers in the area, the number of bowling teams this year at registration time was lower than anticipated, according to organizers. BBBS put out a request to the community for help and many new teams answered the call and stepped in. Honourary chairs were local boxer Tony Luis and Cornwall-born soccer player Christina Julien. â€œIâ€™m very happy to be involved with a great organization like this and with one that helps youth in the area,â€? said Luis. â€œWe so appreciate everyone in the community who came forward, putting in new teams to help us make up the difference this year, and also to all our returning teams who, year after year, are there for us,â€? said BBBS Executive Director Amanda Brisson. The bowling fundraiser provides a very large portion of funding for the charitable organization, which offers seven free mentoring programs to area youth in need. Without the bowlers, volunteers and sponsors rallying together for events such as Tim Hortons Bowl for Kids Sake, the valuable programs that BBBS

will get creative and find ways to make up the difference,â€? said Brisson. â€œThe community always comes through for us.â€?
