Local woman found dead in Ottawa Homicide investigation MAPLE RIDGE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A local woman whose disappearance last week spurred an intense search effort has been found dead in Ottawa, prompting police to launch a homicide investigation. Ottawa Police on Mon., July 29, confirmed the identity of a body discovered on the weekend outside South Keys Shopping Centre as Melissa Kelly Richmond, 28, of North Dundas. The deceased, who resided with her husband at their home on Summers Road, south of Winchester, went missing last Wed., July 24. Richmond never returned after taking a late-night drive in her gold-coloured sedan bearing vanity licence plates RPGGirl. The abandoned vehicle turned up at the mall parking lot on Fri., July 26, and police investigators found her body in the vicinity two days later. According to other media accounts, Richmond may have been stabbed several times. In the hours after she went missing, supporters launched a Facebook site, Help us Find Melissa Richmond, which quickly gained momentum as friends and community members rallied to post fliers of the missing woman and Continued on page 2

Lafleche Environmental gives $500K to Finch Arena project Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff BERWICK â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Â Garbage has been good to the Township of North Stormont â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially so last week. Lafleche Environmental, operator of the innovative private landfill and recycling facility located in Moose Creek, surprised township council by contributing a whopping

$500,000 toward the Finch Arena overhaul. The project would otherwise cost North Stormont taxpayers $2-million for the extensive renovation that currently sees the building with three exterior walls knocked down and its concrete slab torn out. Laflèche Environmental President Brian King delivered the

bona fide cheque â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not a cardboard fake â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Â to councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s July 23 meeting. Only Mayor Dennis Fife appeared to know it was coming, saying he remained â&#x20AC;&#x153;flabbergastedâ&#x20AC;? with the figure.

And the OPP special officers, remember they deal with the frustration and tension every day.â&#x20AC;? Richmond was known to perform with a local bellydancing troupe and was a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, where she was known as Lady Aevianna of Nordengel. She also acted in

$500K Continued from the front months earlier but stunned him with the precise sum more recently. King, who acknowledged the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenge of unplanned costs on the arena rebuild, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We consider this a very worthwhile project, so therefore it is my privilege to reaffirm our commitment towards community that we would like to provide you with a contribution of $500,000.â&#x20AC;? King further attributed the donation to a 2011 increase in

an amateur play staged by the Dundas County Players in 2006. An overwhelming number of people have expressed sorrow at her fate on the Facebook page including many people who did not even know Richmond. Rachel Seal posted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find myself shedding more tears this morning. More

tears for the woman I never got to meet, whom I was hoping to meet when she was found alive and probably exhausted. Whoever did this did more than take away her life. She/he took away a part of each of us as well.â&#x20AC;? Sheila McDonald posted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am so sorry, We do not know each other, or rather I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we do, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve

followed your story and prayed along with you.â&#x20AC;? Clinton Cronk posted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;With tears streaming down my face for someone I never knew, I hope you all find that piece of her in you and shout it from the mountain top every dayâ&#x20AC;Ś.I cry for you my friends. I cry for all of us. I hope for a world of love.â&#x20AC;? The Ottawa Police Service Major Crime Section and the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch are conducting a joint investigation into Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. There is no information available about a possible suspect or suspects at this time, according to police. Anyone with information regarding this homicide is urged to call the OPS Major Crime Section at 613-2361222 ext. 5493 or the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch at 1-888-310-1122, Crime Stoppers at 613-2338477(TIPS) or toll free at 1800-222-8477.

the material permitted to enter the Lafleche site and said he also spoke on behalf of the company ownership, TransForce Inc., in Montreal. Fife said the donation would benefit everyone, â&#x20AC;&#x153;whether they use the arena or not because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be less money on your taxes.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I figured weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get a couple hundred thousand bucks or something,â&#x20AC;? the mayor added happily. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But $500,000, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m flabbergasted by it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure everybody is. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to have corporated partners like Lafleche in North Stormont.â&#x20AC;? After King left the room, discussion ensued on the one â&#x20AC;&#x153;stringâ&#x20AC;? that Fife said was attached to money. With the

Municipal Property Assessment Corporation of Ontario looking to seriously hike the value of private landfill and recycling sites, Lafleche will ask for its money back if such an occurrence raises the firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total annual property-tax bill to $3-million, according to the mayor. Fife suggested the tax bill would be unlikely to reach such a level even in the event of an assessment hike. However, Deputy Mayor Bill Gimpsey, while praising the company, called for caution and suggested a second opinion from the township auditor on how to properly handle a donation that might have to be

returned. King did not return The Recordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call on the question of whether Lafleche Environmental expects the township to issue a charitable donation receipt for money the firm theoretically may want back. Township CAO Karen McPherson said the company has not requested such a receipt. Councillor Tammy McRae suggested the township could at the very least view the money as an interest-free loan. North Stormont also gets $1 per tonne of waste received at the landfill; the last annual cheque under those terms was almost $322,000 in March.

All was fair at the Fair Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff CHESTERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The hustle and bustle of the Chesterville Fair has come and gone again. Chesterville Agricultural Society President Des Desarmia said he was pleased with this 82nd edition despite overall attendance that dropped a bit from last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fair was awesome. The crowds were a little down, but those who were there had an excellent time,â&#x20AC;? said Desarmia on Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And there were no complaints,â&#x20AC;? added the president, who also received but good â&#x20AC;&#x153;nothing comments about the demolition derby.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody liked the setup, the bands. Everybody was just happy. The rides they had were excellent.â&#x20AC;? The midway remained busy even on Sunday, he said, noting that fairgoers â&#x20AC;&#x153;were having a lot of funâ&#x20AC;? despite the light rain that day. Food vendors also experienced good demand for their treats and were very happy with the Fairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 82nd edition, said Desarmia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fry truck ran out Saturday and Sunday,â&#x20AC;? he said, also highlighting the arrival of a

new taco stand that drew many patrons on Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The vendors thought it was the best fair we ever had.â&#x20AC;? He also praised the volunteers who helped with the event and the positive attitude that prevailed through the weekend. Saturday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; after the well attended demolition derby â&#x20AC;&#x201D; may have had a little trouble competing with Farmer Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Summer Party on Forward Rd. this year, Desarmia suggested. But enough revellers turned out to make it entertaining under the big tent while SwitchGear played the Fair for the first time. A group of Saturday night patrons walked away with the small tent at the entrance, using it as a kind of makeshift umbrella on their way to the famous farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bash. Although the tent was destroyed in the process, Desarmia didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let it bother him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We found the carcass of the tent the next morning.â&#x20AC;? Saturday afternoonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fight demonstrations sponsored by Therien JiuJitsu again proved an action-packed popular draw, and organizers now plan a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;So You Think You Can Fight, Chestervilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to add a

new dimension to the attraction. Aspiring fighters from the community are encouraged to enter the ring next summer, after undergoing a few months of requisite training as part of the process. Tent tango, confusion 2013 also marked the return of a large outdoor tent as a central venue for the Fair, an arrangement that Desarmia hopes to continue even when the renovated Chesterville Arena is available for use again. The 40-by-100-foot canvas structure underwent its own two-step shuffle before acquiring the blessing of township officials this year. The Fair Board rented a tent from a Williamstown firm, which was erected on Thursday, only to be ordered down by Township Building Official Greg Trizisky, who refused to issue a building permit in the absence of engineered drawings stamped by an Ontario engineer. So the tent was disassembled and a similar, same-sized model erected by an Embrun firm on Friday morning. That one made the cut after a special visit by Trizisky and his boss, Planning Director Calvin Pol. The Chesterville Fair has

in the past rented the South Mountain Fairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big top â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but at a few thousand dollars in higher cost compared with the slightly smaller alternative chosen this year, according to Desarmia. Chesterville Agricultural Society Past President Dan Gasser said that Trizisky was furnished with U.S. engineerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drawing from the first rejected tent. Mayor Eric Duncan told The Record that the firm should have known the requirements of renting out a large tent in Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a pizza delivery driver not knowing they need a driver â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence,â&#x20AC;? said Duncan. In neighbouring South Stormont, Planning Director Hilton Cryderman said he interprets the provincial tent rule as mandating an actual visit by a professional

engineer, each time a tent of 225 square meters or larger is erected. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the practice in North Dundas, where officials are comfortable with possessing

copies of the engineering specifications on large tents they are familiar with â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as the one owned by the Mountain Township Agricultural Society.

The Road Home Community Policing Crimes featured so often in the daily news seem to give the impression that society is becoming increasingly violent and unsafe. But in a report released last week by Statistics Canada, overall police-reported crime has decreased three per cent, reaching the lowest level since 1972, with the homicide rate falling to the lowest level in 46 years. So it is good to hear that Canada’s crime rate has continued to drop in the last year. The report also stated that the drop was largely because of declines in some of the most common offences – from mischief to car theft. Is this because of community policing or just because the police forces across the country have new awareness programs, like the OPP’s Lock It or Lose It program? As much as mischief and car thefts are on the down, they are, for the most part, very preventable. If more common sense was used by residents, the local detachment could spend less time taking reports on these crimes and be available to respond to the more serious ones. This makes sense, as crime prevention starts with the community and should only be assisted by the police. The Russell Watch is an example of this, a volunteer residents group that acts as eyes and ears of the police, reporting suspicious strangers or vehicles in their midst, and they are on ‘property watch’ if they know a resident is absent. But is it up to them to do the due diligence of protecting one’s property? No. It is up to the community as a whole, and more specifically every resident who can identify something that is wrong. It is not the responsibility of the police to remind people to lock up cars and homes, nor the Russell Watch to keep an eye out. It involves educating our youth to not take what is not theirs, locking up what might be tempting to strangers, making sure our homes are open to kids afraid of strangers approaching them, and to speaking out when something happens. It is safe to say we do not live in a high crime area requiring a heavy police presence. But Russell, like all the other villages that orbit Ottawa, is changing with new high density developments altering the character of the community. More new faces and cars come with each of the new neighbourhoods that get added to the village, and with more families digitally connected and staying in our ability to meet and thus recognize them drops. That lack of recognition of what is normal is what prevents the village from policing itself. But the advantage of smaller communities is that most move here because they can get out and do things, and eventually they will get to know each other, and each other’s children. Some in our community will always slip through the cracks and become part of the statistics. But it also means that a critical element of community policing means that we should be planning the venues and developing the job environment, and the means to get them there for the many youth that these new young families will raise here.

Celebrating a Canadian hero Carolyn Thompson Goddard Record Contributor There are few of us who live in this part of Eastern Ontario who don’t recognize the name of John Crysler, United Empire Loyalist. He began life in the colony of New York, as a young teenager served as a drummer boy in the Loyalist regiment known as Butler’s Rangers during the American Revolution and following the British defeat in that war found a new home along the St. Lawrence River in Williamsburg Township. In 1813, his home was the headquarters for the British forces during the pivotal Battle of Crysler’s Farm. While most of the battlefield land lies deep below the waters of the St. Lawrence, it is a locally known fact that the mound upon which the Battlefield Memorial stands is the sacred soil where the fate of what is now Canada was decided upon on November 11, 1813. Thirty years later in 1843, John Crysler moved to a parcel of land along the South Nation River and began the settlement that is now known as Crysler, Ontario. This small town was a hot bed of activity a couple of weekends ago when a celebration of the legacy started almost 200 years ago by John Crysler UEL held at the Crysler Community Centre. On Saturday evening the “John Crysler Social” featured a sold out roast chicken dinner prepared and served by the Crysler Optimist Club. Accompanying the dessert was a fashion show, sponsored by the Chesterville & District Historical Society, which featured men’s and women’s fashions from the lifetime of the village’s founder. Lorraine and Gord Reoch, from the St. Lawrence Branch of the United Empire Loyalist Association of Canada, wore fashions from the Loyalist period while Chesterville residents Margaret Johnson, Florence Hoople and Ruth Szini provided the audience with beautiful examples of Regency dresses. Cam Stevenson and John Zaluska of the 1st Grenville Regiment (an 1812 re-enactment group) wore their military uniforms from the 1812

period while Allison Wilson wore a beautiful dress from the early Victorian era. The fashion show concluded with Diane Helmer wearing an 1860’s dress, on loan from Upper Canada Village, portraying one of John Crysler ’s daughters. She provided the audience with the story of Col Crysler’s land donations for the construction of local churches, in particular St. John’s Anglican in Crysler. This historical church was vandalized a few years ago and its beautiful stained glass window, donated to the church by Crysler’s widow, is currently located in Crysler Hall at the Village. At the conclusion of the fashion show, an English country dancing group from Ottawa provided dinner guests with demonstration of this style of dancing. Once the demos were over, the group members went out into the audience and found dance partners to participate in a few of the dances. The happy sounds of laughter and visiting that were heard in the Community Centre that evening attested to the enjoyment felt by those in attendance. Early on July 21st the Community Centre was once again a beehive of activity as the Optimist Club

sponsored a community breakfast there from 7am until 11am. Upon entering the decorated hall one was immediately surrounded by the sights and sounds of a community gathering together to experience fellowship and the delicious breakfast prepared for them. It was an interesting breakfast for now and again a group of “voyageurs”, military re-enactors or maybe a costumed exhibitor would enter the centre and an excited buzz would fill the air. Outside volunteers were busily putting up tents, arranging displays, directing traffic or making last minute arrangements for the official opening of the renamed Park. “Where do I set up?”, “What time does the band start?”, “Where do I get something to eat?”, and “Who do I see about the official opening?” were questions heard throughout the morning as the grounds were prepared. As noon approached the invited dignitaries began to arrive and last minute details for the official opening were finalized. Escorted by Piper P.

Follow The Chesterville Record on The Editor: As Deputy Mayor of South Stormont, I would like to state my position on wind and solar farms in Ontario. Like everyone else, I believe in clean and sustainable forms of energy. However, I do not agree with the way this Liberal government has set out to achieve their goalâ&#x20AC;Śto eliminate all coal-fired generating stations by 2015 and to create 60,000 green energy jobs, both unrealistic expectations. A more common sense, practical, realistic and studied approach to green energy could have easily been accomplished with far greater success and at a less burdensome cost to the tax payer. Some options that come to mind are: buy cheap hydro from Quebec; use cleaner coal, brushers in the stacks; continue to research cheaper ways of improving our usage; or improve existing warn-out

equipment. As it stands now, Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power rates are soon to become the highest in North America. Businesses canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to with high compete electricity rates. So they move elsewhere or shut down. As a result, municipalities are feeling the squeeze with fewer tax dollars to spend as a direct result of less growth and employment in the area. Solar farms are classed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;industrial vacantâ&#x20AC;? which amounts to little more than 0.25% of the residential tax rate. Therefore, solar and wind farms provide very little property tax and generate minimal revenue to municipalities. In 2005 the Ontario government implemented the Provincial Policy Statement. The purpose of the PPS is to provide for appropriate development on lands while protecting resources of provincial

interest, public health and safety and quality of the natural environment. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious that wind and solar farms are doing the opposite. There is lots of evidence that claim they are destroying habitat, farmland, wetlands and forests as a result. They are killing thousands of birds, bats, fish, wildlife and species at risk every day. No environmental study is required. This Liberal government has totally contradicted its own land use policy by allowing wind and solar farms to go up basically anywhere in Ontario without any input from municipalities. Many municipalities throughout Ontario and close to home in SD&G have to deal with wind turbines and solar farms that are literally tearing apart their communities. They are pitting against neighbour neighbour. Contrary to MPAC statements, land values near wind and solar

As Pourquoi Pas played throughout the afternoon, people munched on hamburgers, hot dogs or fries and the whole atmosphere was one of enjoyment and education. Along Artisan Row one could see a blacksmith,

leather worker or broom maker at work while inside the community centre you had the opportunity to chat with a period couple about the role of women in 1812, perhaps speak with John Carruthers of Morrisburg about his collection of antique firearms and memorabilia or ask about the United Empire Loyalists at the St. Lawrence Branch display. Throughout the day there were self-guided tours of the village and an opportunity to purchase a history of the village with an accompanying map.

farms are decreasing. No one wants to purchase a house beside a 350 foot wind turbine. Questions still remain unanswered. Who is going to dismantle these projects after the 20 year agreements are up and businesses have the disappeared? Will it be you or will it be your municipal tax dollars? Ontario has a surplus of energy right now and before any of these structures were put up. Wind and solar account for less than 1% of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; energy used each day. On a per kilowatt basis it is the most expensive energy produced. Countries such as the U.K. and Germany, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading pioneers of solar and wind, are backing off from wind and solar because these types of power are not profitable except with huge government subsidies. We need to do the same before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late. Tammy A. Hart Newington

Almost too quickly the day was over and as the people packed up their displays and began the trek home, the organizing committee finished the final clean up and reflected on the success of the event that had been so long in planning. There is no doubt that John Crysler could have never imagined in 1843 that his arrival in this part of the country would be commemorated in such a manner 170 years later!

FireworkstocapDairyfestbirthdaybash: The road to the games New activities give 25th festival a boost WINCHESTER â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There is so much going on this year and so much to celebrate at the 25th anniversary of Dairyfest being held Aug. 8 to 11. Celebrations kick off with Steak and Cake at Sweet Corner Park, hosted by North Dundas Council from 5:00pm to 8:00pm . In honour of the villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 125th anniversary, the Downtown Revitalization Committee, Council, and local historians will be unveiling the new, beautiful mural depicting Winchester â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most prominent buildings which will be unveiled at 7 p.m.. Join us for dinner, live musical entertainment, cash bar, and a night to celebrate what a great community we live in! In celebration of its 25th birthday, Dairyfest 2013 will feature a fireworks display on Sun., Aug. 11 at 9:30 pm as the grand finale to a weekend-long party. The show will be set off behind the arena at the Winchester Sox ball diamond and will be set to music. Prime seating will be

in the parking lot on that side of the arena. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy to announce that fireworks are back at Dairyfest,â&#x20AC;? said committee chair Gina Welch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have been asking about them, especially since this is a milestone year for the festival.â&#x20AC;? Fireworks arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only new thing in the Dairyfest line-up. Alingsview Stables of Chesterville is putting on a riding demonstration on Sat., Aug. 10 starting at 10 am. The demo will be at one of the ball diamonds behind the arena and will feature commentary to explain what the riders are showcasing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our riders are really excited to show their stuff,â&#x20AC;? said stable owner Nicole Allen-Dings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be dressage, and some jumping. After the demonstration, people are welcome to come and meet the horses, have a ride, and look at our display. â&#x20AC;? Saturday will also feature a cooking by demonstration Winchelsea Events.

Court date set for appeal in leash case MORRISBURG - The retrial of a dispute over a $60 leash law fine involving a dog named Axle is scheduled for Aug. 19 at the Morrisburg

court house. The North Dundas township won its right to appeal, to overturn the dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owners victory in the case.

Wasylko, Timothy Executive Chef of the Official Residence of the Prime Minister of Canada, will be showcasing how to make white chocolate ice cream with raspberry swirl at 10 am in the Joel Steele Community Centre (upstairs arena). Following the cooking demo there will be a full slate of seniors entertainment. North Dundas Minor Hockey will be running the Dairy Air hockey shootout on the arena floor from 11 am to 12:30 pm on Saturday. Kids can shoot at a cow-themed board for a chance to score and win prizes. Also new to Dairyfest, the Kapital K-Dance group will be performing at the downtown corner at 1:30 pm on Saturday. The Ottawa-based group is run by co-artistic directors Amanda Smith-Millar of Winchester and Patricia Foster of Greely. The dancers are ages 14 to 25 and dance primarily, but not exclusively, to Korean Pop hits and choreography from South Korea.

On Sun. Aug. 11, Dairyfest will welcome belt sander races. Bring your electric belt sander and drag race it on a track. There will be prizes. You can look it up on YouTube to see what the sport is all about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be loud and awesome,â&#x20AC;? said committee member Aaron Dellah. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually an association for this. People modify their sanders and dress them up to look like trucks or trains. But for this event a straight up sander will do the trick. We thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why not give it a try at Dairyfest?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So bring your sander and your cheering squad.â&#x20AC;? The Winchester Hospital Heelers will be dishing out ice cream and all sorts of toppings for a sundae bar starting at 1 pm on Sunday and running until the ice cream is all gone. Located on the arena floor, sundae bar proceeds will support local cancer care. There is more information available on the Dairyfest website at m.

The charge against dog owner Kevin Pennock of having his Boxer-breed dog off leash in Chesterville Commmunity Park last fall was dismissed due to the township being unable to correctly identify Axle as the dog in question. This seemingly simple

case of a leash by-law has escalated into a big legal battle between Pennock and the township as Pennock has launched a lawsuit in small claims court against the township and the Chesterville resident who made the original complaint about the dog being off leash.

MAXVILLE - The Glengarry Highland Games opens for its 66th edition early Friday morning, Aug 1. with the Along hundreds of local families who see their numbers multiply ten fold for the Games are the thousands of visitors who trek to Maxville to take in this extraordinary event. Being at the Games is all about audience participation whether encouraging a favourite athlete, taking part in the Scottish fiddle or harp workshop, dancing to a favourite celtic band or shopping for that special tartan souvenir. The heavyweight events are a perennial crowd pleaser at the Games and have grown to include competitions for all ages. The entry fields are full for both Friday and Saturday. Greg Hadley is back from Antigonish, Nova Scotia to defend his title in the Pros on Saturday. Local competitors have a strong presence in all events and everyone hopes for good results for them. This is the third year of the tug of war between North and South Glengarry clans. Competition will be fierce as the two teams take to the field on Friday at 5:45pm just before the evening Tattoo and Concert. What would a highland

games be without the intricate dances of the young highland dancers. The Games offers a full slate of competitions for dancers and this year is adding a cash incentive for competitions. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;John Angus Carther Trophyâ&#x20AC;? will be presented to the dancer with the most points in the Championship and a resident of S.D.& G. For those looking for a little twist at the Games, Friday offers an interesting lineup of activities. Sports car enthusiasts will enjoy the Ottawa British Car Club display of vintage MGBs throughout the day on Friday. In the infield, Werner Reitboeck of Navall Farm will display his disciplined working sheep dogs at 10:30 am and 2:00 pm. Returning this year is another Games favourite, the 78th Fraser Highlanders 18th Century Musket Review with shows at 12:40 and 2:40 The Quigley pm. Highlanders Pipes & Drums and the South Glengarry Pipe Band, duty bands for the day, will lead the re-enactors onto Circle One for their performances. CFRAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rob Snow will broadcast again this year live from the Games from 3-6 pm. Corus Cornwall will also broadcast live on Friday and Saturday on 104.5FM and CJSS.

JK and SK go full-time Lois Ann Baker Record Staff BROCKVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With only one month to go before the end of summer vacation, schools in the area are getting ready for the changes to the junior and senior kindergarten programs. Originally a fiveyear initiative, the Upper Canada District School Board has decided that this year all schools will now full-time provide kindergarten, five days a week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are in the fourth year of a five year plan but the board decided to implement it across the board because it would have only left a few schools without it,â&#x20AC;? said Valerie

Allen, Superintendent of Education. While it has been implemented in other schools, this is the first year Chesterville Public is offering the full-time program. Across the board Allen said registration is just as however expected, registrations for kindergarten often still come in September. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As of now the numbers are as expected and we are happy about that,â&#x20AC;? said Allen. The new program has prompted a hiring of Early Childhood Educators for the school board as the Ministry of Education dictates that once a kindergarten class reaches 16 students, the

Pipeline project sends oil east SD&G â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In an effort to provide Eastern Canada with Alberta oil, residents of South Stormont and South Dundas will first have to put up with a little construction. TransCanada, a Canadian company that builds pipelines and power infrastructure, will be extending an existing pipeline from Alberta to St. John, N.B. in the near future. The project, called Energy East, will connect a new pipeline from Hardesty, Alberta to an existing one on the Saskatchewan border. The existing pipeline runs through the prairies and into Ontario,

but stops in Iroquois. Energy East will bring a new pipeline from Iroquois right through to St. John. The existing pipeline will be converted from a natural gas one to an oil one. The pipeline will cover 4,400 km and is expected to carry 500,000 to 850,000 barrels per day of crude oil to refineries in Eastern Canada. company is The currently in the regulatory phase and hopes to have final approval by the end of 2015. If all goes according to schedule, the project should be completed in 2018.




Wednesday, July 31, 2013 board is required to hire an ECE to work with the teacher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ECE comes with developmental the knowledge and the teacher brings the learning and acquisition model,â&#x20AC;? said Allen. At Chesterville Public, there are two classes of 15 students each so those teachers have been trained in the early childhood model said Allen. The program is an early learning model based on inquiry, said Allen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is play based where the children have constructive play, social dynamic play and pretend play,â&#x20AC;? said Allen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The teachers are looking for literacy acquisition, narrative recall and so on.â&#x20AC;?

For the children, that means exploration, investigation and communication with guidance from the teachers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what we call a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sit and getâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; program,â&#x20AC;? said Allen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more geared toward who the children are as four- and five-year-olds.â&#x20AC;? Allen added that the program has been implemented across the province and is proving to be a great success. So with this new program being implemented board-wide this September, the hiring process for ECEs is priority and many have already been hired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year and this year we have had a big influx of hiring them,â&#x20AC;? said Allen.

Winchester’s Matt Carkner adjusts to life in Long Island Darren Matte Record Sports WINCHESTER— After spending five seasons in the Ottawa Senators’ organization, Matt Carkner took his talents to Long Island last season after signing a threeyear deal with the New York Islanders. While his season was cut short because of the lockout and a hip injury, Carkner was still able to adjust to the busy life in New York, something he was not used to having grown up in Winchester, Ontario. “The adjustment was pretty big,” said Carkner. “I was lucky to have been in Ottawa and got comfortable with my family in the area and having my kids in school there. After the challenges of finding schools and a place to live, everyone in Long Island made us feel right at home.” Carkner remembers how stressful things were especially with the lockout to begin the season. Yet he was one of the lucky few who had signed their deal before the collective bargaining agreement had expired, taking a huge weight off his shoulders. “The lockout was a stressful time for everyone and I could only have imagined how much more if you didn’t have a contract. I knew a lot of guys in that situation. Just not knowing if we were going to lose a season or what, I was happy to have signed before.” Aside from his off ice challenges, Carkner knew there would be challenges when the season got underway. “It was a short season so we had to jump right in. I didn’t know the team dynamic. I had seen what types of players the guys were, but I needed to get to know them. I started to get comfortable with the room and then, nine games in, I injured my hip flexor.” The injury definitely set

Carkner back. He recalls it happened in practice while doing a two-on-one drill. “I went down with one knee to the ice to block a shot or stop a pass. I think it was John Tavares who drove to the net and I felt something. I tried to do another skating drill and just felt something snap.” At first, the injury was diagnosed as a pulled groin and Carkner tried to work through it. But after seeing no progress after a week, he went for an MRI where doctors revealed it was actually a hip flexor. “It is a rare injury to get in hockey but I just have had some bad luck. It was equally frustrating that it was misdiagnosed.” The injury kept Carkner out from Feb. 5 to March 21. He missed six weeks and 20 games. After he returned, Carkner said he got into a comfortable zone with the team and felt he meshed well with their system. “By the end of the year things were really great. It was hard for our coaching staff to really get to know me as a player after just nine games. But they were great, I actually played with Brent Thompson, our defensive coach, in the minors. He was the same sort of player as I am so I enjoyed working with him. Our other coaches Jack Capuano and Doug Weight were honest with us and pointed the team in the right direction.” Carkner returned just as the team was in a battle for a playoff spot. He and the rest of the team realized what they needed to do to change the recent results of the franchise. “We said to ourselves ‘If we don’t go on a run we are done and will be looking in from the outside.’ The guys found a way to win. They were tired of losing in Long Island.” Carkner registered just a

pair of assists for the team in 22 games, but shared in the celebration when the team clinched their playoff spot. “It was kind of a funny thing honestly,” he said. “Everyone was celebrating and happy about it. I don’t know if that hurt us in the playoffs, but it was still a great experience.” In their first round series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, New York split the first two games before eventually losing in six games. Still, Carkner saw the series as a positive for the team. “Everyone did their job in the playoffs. There were a couple of close overtime games, but in the end, they (Pittsburgh) may have just out worked us.” Now Carkner is turning his attention to next season. He is doing a lot of off ice conditioning and skating in Ottawa as he gets back into game shape before training camp. As for his hip, Carkner says that it has completely healed and he is hoping for no problems next season. Carkner is wants to establish himself on the Islanders blue line by playing his physical, tough style while staying healthy. He acknowledges that the team has seen some big losses this offseason, primarily with Mark Streit moving to Philadelphia, but says that it will not change his role but rather give other players in the organization an opportunity. As for the team, he is optimistic that they can again aim for a playoff spot. It appears as though Carkner has adjusted well to the organization. As the Islanders get set for the upcoming season, he will once again be looked at as a veteran presence, not only on the blue line, but in the entire room. His experience and ability to stay healthy will be key in the Isles earn-

Bryan Helmer named assistant coach of OHL’s Peterborough Petes P ETERBO RO U G H — Winchester’s Bryan Helmer has entered the next stage of his hockey career as it was announced on July 22, that he has joined the Peterborough Petes, of the Ontario Hockey League, as an assistant coach. The 41year-old Helmer, who played 20 seasons, of professional hockey as a defenseman, joins head coach Jody Hull another former pro, 16 seasons, who took over the role in December of 2012. “We are very fortunate to be able to add Bryan Helmer to our team and welcome Bryan, his wife, son and daughter to Peterborough,” said Petes’ General Manager Mike Oke in a press release. “Bryan’s experience will be an asset to complement the coaching philosophy of Jody Hull and Andrew Verner as well as relay to our players what it takes to play professional hockey as well as assisting our players to develop their on ice skills.” During his career, Helmer played for 15 teams in the American Hockey League (AHL), International Hockey League (IHL) and National

Hockey League (NHL). Helmer went undrafted but signed his first professional deal in 1993 with the New Jersey Devils organization, although he never played for the big club instead spending five seasons with the Albany River Rats. His NHL career included time with the Phoenix Coyotes, St. Louis Blues, Vancouver Canucks and Washington Capitals. He appeared in 146 games scoring eight goals, 18 assists, for 26 points and registered 135 penalty minutes. He also appeared in six playoff games for the Canucks in 2002. “Bryan has tremendous character, dedication and passion for the game,” said Petes’ coach Jody Hull. “His accolades from his playing days speak volumes: over 1,100 AHL games, three Calder Cups, and the all-time leader for points by a defenseman in the AHL.” Helmer most recently won the Calder Cup, as AHL champion, in 2010 making it back-to-back championships with the Hershey Bears. He was also part of the 1995 Albany River Rats team that won the title.  

In 2011, while with the Oklahoma City Barons, Helmer became the AHL’s all-time leader in points by a defenseman when he notched point number 562 (129 goals, 435 assists), a record he still holds. Helmer also brings leadership to the Petes having been a team captain on two occasions with San Antonio and Hershey. “I am so excited to be a part of the Peterborough Petes organization,” said Helmer. “I am looking forward to working with Mike, Jody and Andrew in having a winning season.” “Bryan Helmer is a legend,” said brother-in-law and New York Islanders defenseman Matt Carkner. “It is great news to hear. He was a little worried about what he would do after retiring, but when people had heard, it didn’t take long for him to see how wanted he was.” Last season, Peterborough finished ninth in the Eastern Conference and missed the playoffs for the third year in a row. Now Helmer and the rest of the organization will try to get the team back to the playoffs and capture their first league title since 2006.

Darren Matte Record Sports OTTAWA— A flurry of activity right before half time put the North Dundas OT5 team up 2-0 on the Spitfires, on July 26 in Ottawa, and they were able to hang on to that margin for their first win of the season in the Ottawa Carleton Soccer League. Things didn’t look good for North Dundas early as they only had one sub. They struggled to communicate on the field and couldn’t get their breakouts working. What did work for North Dundas was their ability to move the ball through short passes, but they still weren’t able to generate many chances in the first 20 minutes. Meanwhile, the Spitfires were determined to try and beat the North Dundas defense out wide. When the Spitfires did get shots, North Dundas keeper Steve Van Bruinessen was up to the task and kept the game scoreless. North Dundas did get things working and looked to have a great chance when Martin Hagedorn received a pass and was about to head in for a breakaway. However, he was deemed offside. Moments later, Tony Wouters got a chance and tried to float a shot over the Spirtifres’ keeper, but he was not fooled. Then, Wouters chipped one over the keeper, but again he was able to scramble back and keep the ball out.

North Dundas would not be denied on their next rush. A good pass turned into a two-on-none for Don Vreman and Wouters. Vreman took the shot himself that found the back of the net, 1-0 North Dundas. When play resumed, the Spitfires turned the ball over and Wouters took off the other way. He let a shot go that beat the keeper five-hole and it was 2-0 North Dundas. North Dundas was able to buckle down defensively in the second half and were able to hold the Spitfires off the board to pick up their first win of the season 2-0. The win was much needed for North Dundas who jumped a trio of teams and more importantly, moved out of a relegation spot. The team has five games left on the schedule beginning with this week, Aug. 2 when they host Sporting Mexico. MR4 Warriors It was a 3-1 win for the North Dundas Warriors on July 23 when they were in Ottawa to face the Fusion. Tyler Hume, Chris Wert and Jordan Doran each found the net in the victory. North Dundas currently sits fifth in the standings at 13 points. Yesterday, July 30, they hosted the Bears and next week, Aug. 6 they will again be in Chesterville hosting the Ottawa Raiders. MR6 Cameron Hunt-Hedge and

Alex Porteous each scored for the North Dundas MR6 team to help them earn a 2-2 draw with the Spitfires. North Dundas welcomed the Spitfires to Chesterville on July 24 for the showdown. Thanks to the point, North Dundas remains in a promotion position, second, with 22 points. Tonight, July 31, they visit Kemptville. WR4 The North Dundas WR4 team was in Ottawa on July 25 to take on Croatian Jadran. The game turned out to be one filled with offense but it was the Jadrans who took the win 5-3. Rosalie Murton, Kaitlyn Hay and Lindsy Allen each scored for North Dundas in the loss. North Dundas remains seventh in the table with 12 points. This week, Aug. 1 they are in Chesterville to host the Ottawa Internationals Storm with an 8 p.m. kickoff. MR3 Sonics The North Dundas Sonics find themselves in their first slide of the season after having lost their past three games. The latest defeat came on July 24 at the hands of West Ottawa in Ottawa. It was a close game, but the Sonics just couldn’t find the net and lost 1-0. The Sonics are seventh in their standings with 13 points. They will look to get back on the board tonight, July 31, as they return to Mountain to host the Gloucester Hornets, at 8 p.m.

Hotspurs this season and this game was no different. North Dundas was able to find the net often and filled it in a 102 win. Ben Schoones led the way for the team with a three-goal night. Daniel Trumper and Matt Nightingale each scored a pair of goals in the win.

Shaun Crook, Pat Gibson and Travis Marshall all had one. With the win the team improves the team to 9-1-1 on the season and keeps them comfortably atop the table. This week, the team will play a rematch with the Hotspurs in Ottawa on Aug. 1.

No Sex Please has all elements of British farce Catherine Thompson Special to the Record MORRISBURG — Upper Canada Playhouse is bringing another hilarious British farce onstage in the production No Sex Please, We’re British by Alistair Foot and Anthony Marriott, that is set to run from Aug. 1 to 25. The play is based on the predicament of a young couple caught in an embarrassing situation that threatens to disrupt family relations and end the husband’s career. It’s set in England in the late 1960s and the action takes place in an apartment over a bank, where Peter Hunter played by Derek Moran and his new wife, Frances (Katie Lawson) reside. The chief cashier in the bank is Brian Runnicles acted by Brian Young. When Frances orders in supplies for her glassware business, she is horrified to receive a load of pornographic material which the couple try to hide from Bromwell, a very conservative bank manager played by Walter Learning. As soon as the newlyweds get rid of one shipment of erotica, another batch shows up. To add to their problems, Frances’ mother-in-law Eleanor Hunter (Linda Gorenson) arrives and a police superintendent performed by Zach Counsil keeps showing up. Later, an inspector comes to go over the bank books, while some of the material is still in the apartment. “They have to hide the material from the three heavies as it were,” director Richard Bauer explains. “There’s a lot of action in the play. Like many of these shows there are doors that fly open and the action is pretty much continuous. There’s also lots to look at. There’s a hatch that that seems to have a mind of its own that leads to a kitchen.

Derek Moran as Peter Hunter, Brian Young as bank cashier Brian Runnicles and Katie Lawson (Frances Hunter) are surprised at a shipment of erotica instead of business supplies. A police superintendent acted by Zach Counsil looks on. It’s a delight to see these people bring it to life.” Bauer says there’s almost as much comic action going on backstage as there is onstage, because in a farce the timing is so critical. One of the big challenges is to make sure that everyone knows when and where they need to be in a split second. To faciliate that, there are cue-bites on every door backstage. Actor Derek Moran says it’s important to be accurate in a farce as in any play. But in a farce, “there are so many internal cues that it’s a great workout for your brain. You have to do so much thinking in a short amount of time, you have to think faster than the world is going. It’s one reason I was excited to sign up. . . .Once it starts, there’s no stopping it. It’s its own missile headed hopefully out there in the universe. You walk in on stage. It’s like jumping on a plane. There’s no chance after that.” UCP artistic director Donnie Bowes adds “a farce

calls on almost all of an actor’s techniques, crafts and skills from articulation to physical movement. Lots of times, it’s almost like a dance. It’s pretty much like a sport. Once it starts, it starts.” In addition to acting skills, a farce can only be produced with a good physical base for fast action. The set is designed by John Thompson, and created by Sean Free, who is also light designer. “Sean Free is creating a wonderful set, with a hatch that has to be dropped in place and swinging doors. We have a set that is sound enough to withstand all the beating that it takes during the course of the show,” Bauer says. Working with a large cast is sometimes easier because you know the limitations right off the bat, he goes on to say. And this is one of the largest casts that the Playhouse has seen in some time. In addition to the above mentioned actors, Shaun Clarke takes the part of the bank inspector Mr. Needham. Clarke appeared in Seduced by Moonlight during the Playhouse’s early days at the former Odonto toothbrush factory. Katie Leamen and Jackie English depict two guests who turn up unexpectedly in this production. Performances of No Sex Please, We’re British are Tue/Thu/Fri/Sat at 8 p.m. and Wed/Thu/Sat/Sun at 2 p.m. For tickets, call Upper Canada Playhouse at 613543-3713 or contact
