Ingredion (Casco) at risk of leaving?
CARDINAL â€” Reported uncertainty over the renewal of an energy contract at an existing cogeneration gas plant in Cardinal may have the owners of Ingredion (formerly known as Casco) thinking about the future of â€˜The Starchâ€™ in that village. Local MPP Jim McDonell confirmed his caucus colleague MPP Steve Clark of LeedsGrenville is working on the still-unresolved problem. Owned by a separate entity, the 156-megawatt power plant was built about 20 years ago and supplies both electricity and steam to the venerable Cardinal manufacturer â€” with excess juice sold into the grid. But Ontario today has a surplus of baseload electricity and must contend with renewable energy sources going onand off-line through the day. McDonell said the OPA consequently prefers to contract only â€œpeaking typeâ€? natural gas plants, which jeopardizes Ingredionâ€™s current energy arrangement. â€œWe have nothing to report at this time. We are continuously evaluating assets to maximize them,â€? said Ingredion corporate communications director Claire Regan when asked about the corn processorâ€™s commitment to staying in the Eastern Ontario village.

Group to fight campus closures Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff KEMPTVILLE â€” Fuelled by a mix of outrage and determination, momentum is building behind a regional effort that has sprung up to keep the doors open at the Kemptville and Alfred agricultural college campuses, after the University of Guelph last week acknowledged plans to shutter both institutions at the end of 2015. Current students will finish their studies as late as next year, but the school wonâ€™t select a new crop of entrants for this fall from applications received this winter. And that represents the biggest immediate obstacle that must be overcome, according to Ontario Federation of Agriculture President Mark Wales, addressing a rally of 400 people at the Kemptville campus gymnasium on Sat., March 15. â€œItâ€™s extremely important, itâ€™s absolutely critical that there be a 2014 intake of students,â€? said Wales to applause, offering his thoughts to the crowd near the end of the meeting emceed by Bill Smirle of Morewood. â€œIf the lights go out, itâ€™s going to be tough to get them back on again, so we need to have a class coming here this fall,â€? emphasized the OFA president, who also observed that a two-year moratorium on Guelphâ€™s closure plan may be the â€œbestâ€? way to achieve that aim. â€œEither way,â€? he added, â€œthereâ€™s got to be a very, very quick solution.â€? Backed by a slew of volunteers
Best wishes for Kemptville
Glengarry-Prescott-Russell MPP Grant Crack addresses a rally last Sat., March 15, to save the Kemptville campus from closure. Continuing from left are emcee Bill Smirle, North Grenville Mayor David Gordon, Kemptville College Foundation President Mac Johnson and Ontario Federation of Agriculture President Mark Wales. Crack conceded having prior knowledge of the University of Guelphâ€™s closure plan for the Kemptville and Alfred campuses.
who eagerly came forward at the meeting, a focused steering committee of sorts is taking shape this week, according to Smirle. Among those involved are North Grenville Mayor Dave Gordon, Kemptville College Foundation President Mac Johnson, and Chestervilleâ€™s Marty Derks, vicepresident of the Dundas Federation of Agiculture, with possibly others drawn from Kemptvilleâ€™s Chamber of Commerce and staff at the Kemptville campus. Smirle expected to learn more after an Alumni Association meeting on Monday of this week. In a shock to Eastern Ontarioâ€™s Continued on page 2

2008 Kemptville campus graduate Marty Derks delivers some pointed remarks in his turn from the floor, during Saturdayâ€™s rally at the campus.
Continued from the front farming community, the U of G, which took over both Eastern Ontario campus operations from the province in the mid-1990s, officially announced the impending shutdown of Kemptville and Alfred to students, staff and the media around noon last Wed., March 12. Officials explained the measure as necessary to help slay a $32million deficit by consolidating college-level programs in Ridgetown, 700 km away. â€œWeâ€™ve had flat-line funding from various levels of the provincial government which support our education and training and research programs at all our main campus and off-campus facilities,â€? said Rich Moccia, the universityâ€™s associate vice-president of research, during a March 12 media scrum in Kemptville. â€œAnd weâ€™ve had significant inflationary costs over the last several years, which means a growing differential between the money we have to spend and how much itâ€™s actually costing us to deliver programs.â€? Both campuses have also suffered from stagnant enrolment and rising operating costs despite efforts to generate new revenues and attract more students, according to the university. It hopes to save about $7million in annual operating costs by chopping Kemptville and Alfred and many millions more in deferred capital upgrades needed at both sites. â€œWe absolutely deeply regret that this decision had to occur; itâ€™s not an easy thing when you have such a long and storied history of being involved in the agricultural industry in the province â€Ś and this community and Kemptville campus have been an integral part of rural Ontario and Eastern Ontario
for years,â€? said Moccia. The French-language Alfred campus has just 61 students, half from outside Ontario. While 550 students are said to attend Kemptville, including part-timers and those taking courses in the trades, 128 are enrolled in two-year associate diploma programs the university is mandated to offer â€“ largely the associate diploma in agriculture. An additional 51 Kemptville students are in the four-year bachelor of bioresource management (BBRM) equine management degree program. The final two years of those classes always took place in Guelph, although the university last month announced the BBRM would relocate entirely to the main U of G campus. That move was not meant as a precursor to this monthâ€™s outright closure announcement, according to Moccia, and was only undertaken to boost
enrolment in the BBRM program. â€œThat was one that actually had been planned and in play already and really was not connected to this announcement today.â€? â€œWeâ€™ve had full support from the province to move ahead with our consolidations,â€? he also said, in reply to a question from North Grenville Mayor David Gordon, who expressed disappointment at how his council had been left out of the loop. Research projects at both campuses will be completed or relocated to Guelph or Ridgetown by the end of 2015. However, the university expects to continue managing field crop research facilities at both sites as well as the New Liskeard Agricultural Research Station. Moccia suggested the robot and quota at Kemptvilleâ€™s dairy barn would relocate to the universityâ€™s Elora facility, near Guelph.
LOOKING FORWARD ONCE AGAIN TO SERVING EVERYONE THIS YEAR!
Students emerging from their exclusive March 12 session in the Kemptville campus gymnasium said the dean told them the university made its decision to pull out of Kemptville and Alfred about three weeks earlier. â€œI think [Agriculture and Food Minister and Premier] Kathleen Wynne has to answer for this,â€? said secondyear student Graham Walt of Prince Edward County. â€œAgriculture doesnâ€™t just revolve around Western Ontario. Guelph thinks theyâ€™re central in the universe, but theyâ€™re not. Itâ€™s just regrettable.â€? â€œI was kind of disappointed said another second-year student, Jesse Miedema of Cobourg. â€œA lot of my friends came here, and I kind of wanted my [other] friend to come here, and thatâ€™s not going to happen.â€? First-year student Daniel Sargent of Bowmanville suggested that prospective ag students from Eastern Ontario might choose to stay on the farm right out of high school now. â€œThatâ€™s just not fair.â€?
The news confirmed rumours that had swirled during the previous â€œCollege Royal weekendâ€? â€” the Kemptville campusâ€™s annual showcase event â€” where the cancellation of an upcoming â€œDiscovery Dayâ€? for prospective students as well as the schoolâ€™s abrupt withdrawal from last weekâ€™s Ottawa Valley Farm Show did not go unnoticed. The university does not own the facilities in Kemptville or Alfred; another arm of the province, the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario, serves as landlord. And that raises the possibility of finding other post-secondary institutions to take over from the U of G, whose 17-year tenure Mark Wales characterized as â€œa failed experimentâ€? at the March 15 rally. â€œThis college was treated as a bit of an orphan. They probably didnâ€™t want it in the first place, didnâ€™t know how to deal with it, so we have what we have today.â€? The OFA president added, â€œI took down a note:
â€˜Goodbye Guelph.â€™â€? The room applauded loudly in response. Negotiations to shift operations to another university have been quietly underway in Alfred â€” located in the Liberal riding of Glengarry-Prescott-Russell â€” for the past couple of weeks already. And thatâ€™s a sore point with the other rural MPPs in Eastern Ontario, Progressive Conservatives who didnâ€™t get the same advance notice as GPRâ€™s Grant Crack. Nonetheless, the visiting Grit voiced his affinity with keeping both campuses open at the podium in Kemptville. â€œWe have made substantial progress in just over one week. It appears that Alfred is moving forward at a quicker pace than Kemptville, but that does not mean that Kemptville is not going to achieve the same success, and Iâ€™m very, very encouraged by everyone who is here today, showing their support in a very positive manner,â€? said Crack.

Campus Continued from page 3 The Alfred site, as the only francophone agricultural college in Ontario, already had the advantage of some preexisting links with CollĂ¨ge BorĂŠal in Sudbury and La CitĂŠ CollĂŠgiale in Ottawa, he explained. However, Crack could not yet assure The Record with total certainty that Alfred had been saved from closure â€” that its programs and courses wonâ€™t simply move away to either of those other francophone institutions at the end of the day. It all hinges on the outcome of â€œdiscussionsâ€? still taking place, he said. â€œThere is no guarantee at this point,â€? conceded the MPP, who serves as parliamentary secretary on francophone affairs. â€œBut all the parties agree there is a requirement for francophone programs at Alfred.â€? But in a phone call on Monday of this week, Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry MPP Jim McDonell expressed chagrin the governing Wynne Liberals defended the decision to close the Kemptville campus, earlier that day in the Legislature, while lauding Crack for â€œsavingâ€? his school. â€œThe only answer back today is how Grant has done such a great job. Theyâ€™re bragging about spending two weeksâ€?
working on the Alfred file, said the local MPP, fuming that Kemptville didnâ€™t get the courtesy of such advance notice. McDonell, whose five brothers attended the Kemptville College, emphasized the importance of agriculture to the Ontario economy, now surpassing the auto industry to reach number one as a sector. During the March 15 rally, Professor Paul Sharpe reminded the audience of the approaching 21st anniversary of the closure of the agricultural college at New Liskeard, where he worked at the time. Sharpe said he later learned the Rae government received very few letters requesting a reconsideration of its decision. He reminded the audience to write actual paper letters to the premier, minister of education and other senior officials in the Ontario government, on behalf of the Kemptville campus. The United Counties of SD&G also passed a resolution on Monday decrying the decision and demanding a moratorium on the Kemptville closure and the lifting of suspension of new admissions for 2014. The resolution begins by highlighing the premierâ€™s recent challenge to the agriculture and agri-food sectors to create 120,000 jobs by 2010. And Organic Council of Ontario (OCO) board member
Tom Manley called for continued diploma education programs, organic dairy research, and rural waste water management research at the Alfred campus in a press release issued last week. Manley, owner of Homestead Organics in Morrisburg and Berwick, also serves as president of the Alfred College Community Advisory Council. â€œAlthough I feel the loss on behalf of Kemptville College, I am happy to say that a solution is found for Alfred College,â€? said Manley. Ontarioâ€™s two francophone colleges, he pointed out, have â€œaccepted to take over the three educational diplomasâ€? at Alfred, â€œThey will be sending out acceptance letters to applicants shortly for the new enrolment this fall.â€? â€œTo maintain the organic dairy research and education, the academic transfer from U of Guelph to CollĂ¨ge BorĂŠal and La CitĂŠ CollĂŠgiale must also include a transfer of the research activities and the dairy quota provided by the Dairy Farmers of Ontario,â€? he said. At its Annual General Meeting in one week, the Organic Council of Ontario will seek a unanimous resolution of support from its members to maintain Alfred College's organic dairy research and teaching capacity.

Editorial The cost of higher education The University of Guelph is shutting down its satellite campuses in Alfred and Kemptville. The institution claims that this decision was based on the declining enrolment rates and that they offer programs that are already offered at other U of G campuses. The Ridgetown, Kemptville, and Alfred campuses have been affiliated with U of G since 1997. Apparently increased operating costs are a part of a budget deficit. Closing campuses will certainly take a few million off the university budget, but relocating programs is not cheap either. I am not sure the declining enrolment argument carries much weight with a major demographic shift underway as a new generation of farmers looks to take over family farms. Many families skipped a generation because it was unaffordable then, but with the those who are retiring, younger workers are coming back to self-employment opportunities in blossoming organic agri-jobs. But money is not the real issue – it is access. Access to research, access to education, and access to the jobs they in turn support. In an environment where skilled trades are already being pinched, where we have to import workers, closing campuses like Kemptville which teach diverse courses relevant to life on a farm, and the industries that support farms makes no sense. Sure Algonquin teaches diesel and hydraulics courses, but do their local businesses bring tractors and other farm equipment to the campus and let the faculty and students use them in the fields and crawl over them for practical lectures? Access to affordable education is similarly challenged. Going away to school is a rite of passage, but going far away is a burden that some cannot afford. A campus like Alfred with a unique organic dairy program, or one like Kemptville where aspiring professionals in large animal care programs start is special. Deciding on a diploma versus degree is not easy, but doing part of it close to home and the work placements here helps to pay bills. The advantage here is a test of aptitudes, and if sufficient a student can move to higher qualifications at Guelph. The important industry benefit is that the university graduates will know people and appreciate the hands-on work done at the college level. Elitist thinking is eliminated by programs like these. Living away is a huge cost for any student, but that cost is a benefit to the host community too. Think of what greater Kemptville and Alfred will lose when students are no longer there. If U of G believes declining enrolment numbers on the other campuses will stabilize, they must not appreciate the other options in Eastern Ontario - McGill University’s McDonald College in Montreal, or American schools. Travel is a huge line item in the modern student budget, so if you have to travel to go to school, why pay for eight hours each way when you could pay for three? Shuffling our young farmers and their agricultural education to the other end of the province, or out of province, is not supporting the industry - it will only negatively affect our economy and communities. The province has made steps to help the industry of today through programs such as the Get Ready to Grow, and the $417-million Growing Forward 2 federal-provincial business grant fund, but it is also time to help the industry of tomorrow by supporting the growth and development of the people that will fill those jobs.
Kemptville College, a second home The Editor: I can’t believe Kemptville College is closing its doors. It’s a very sad day for Eastern Ontario. My husband graduated in 1978, I graduated in 1979, my son in 2007 and his wife the same year. I have brothers and a sister and aunts and uncles, friends from all over who attended this beautiful campus and now I find out its closing its doors. Kemptville College is a ninety-seven year old establishment. If you have ever been, you will agree that it is one of the most serene, picturesque and quaint campuses in all of Ontario. The education taught to our young men and women was top notch. Agriculture and Food is one of the top industries in our country and yet the Ontario government had decided to close Kemptville College for good. Folks, Ontario is in deep trouble economically. Closing Kemptville College is just one more indication
Letters To The Editor of just how bad things really are. Tammy A. Hart Deputy Mayor of South Stormont
It's just our money The Editor: It is very hard to believe that the premier of this province is doling out money to companies that really don't have a need for it and when this province is so badly in debt. You probably have guessed the companies I am referring to, the St. Albert's cheese factory and the Chrysler Corporation and even CISCO in Ottawa. When it comes to Chrysler, the CEO basically told the premier where she could put the $775,000,000, which was offered to the corporation. She was totally dumbfounded, thunderstruck and amazed at the refusal to accept the inordinately large amount of money, but I have to congratulate him on not taking it and not allowing the premier to increase the Ontario debt any further than what it is
already. CISCO did exactly the same thing as Chrysler, when Chiarelli tried to offer CISCO a lump of money. Our debt is far too high to permit these donations, and that's just exactly what they are, of millions upon millions of dollars to be added to it. Ours, yours and mine, provincial debt is monstrous but then a lot of people just don't care. We'll let our children look after it. In respect to the St. Albert cheese factory, the fire yes was absolutely devastating, but the factory had the necessary insurance to cover the rebuilding of the factory. It would have been a very magnanimous, generous, charitable, big-hearted and even noble behaviour on the company's part, had that $1,000,000 been refused by the owner and maybe have mentioned to the premier that the Alfred College, which is desperate for money and is going to be closed and the Kemptville College as well, and could the money please be used to keep open these two important agricultural colleges. Why wouldn't the
Soldiers commemorated OTTAWA — With the mission finally at an end, families and dignitaries welcomed home the last of the Canadian contingent from Afghanistan on March 18 at CFB Uplands, Ottawa.
The Afghan mission spanned more than a decade, deploying almost 40,000 soldiers, injuring many and claiming the lives of 162 Canadians. In recognition, Prime Minister Stephen Harper
announced that May 9 will now be a National Day of Honour to recognize the sacrifices made by the troops who served in Afghanistan and honour those who gave their lives in service.

Lions help broomball girls go to nationals The Chesterville Lions Club donated a cheque of $500 to the Eastern Thunder Juvenile (13 to 20 year-olds) Girls Broomball Team. The Thunder are going to participate in the National Championship to defend their titles again this season. This year the Nationals are being held at Alma, Quebec. Carl Robinson representing the Chesterville Lions Club was on hand to present to Eve Campbell representing the Thunder at MT Advertising by Design on Fri., Feb. 28. Robinson remarked, “We like to donate to these types of things because families can’t afford to spend the money that is needed to travel and lodge.” Moore Photo
government want to keep these colleges open to ensure that the food we are presently producing, is still going to be available for our children and their children in the future? Because they want to be seen as caring. What a load of tripe. What is even more disturbing than the presentation of the money, is that our Prescott-Russell representative in the legislature, apparently knew about the closure of Alfred College in advance of the donation to the cheese factory. What wasn't mentioned of course and never is, is that this money is our tax money, it doesn't belong to the premier or her ministers. It's ours. It isn't just a large pot sitting at the legislature that can be reached into and thrown around willy nilly at the premier's or the minister's whims. I don't know how anyone can look at what has occurred and believe that it is in the province's best interest to increase our debt by continuing to allow these things to happen. We need a change very badly. Ted Smith Russell
NDDHS Report By Amber Cotton Special to The Record The Student Council at North Dundas District High School would like to welcome back all students after their well-deserved March Break has come to an end. We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! A reminder to all parents: parent-teacher interviews will be held on March 20, from 5:30pm until 8:00pm. Students are encouraged to signup for their desired time slot(s). We can’t wait to see you all there! As spring is around the corner, we hope that all students keep up the good work in their studies and continue to succeed. However, if any students are having difficulty, teachers are available for extra help – if wanted, students can contact their teachers and schedule time during lunch for help. A big congratulations goes out to the Senior Boys’ basketball team for placing 6th provincially; they battled hard and made Dundas extremely proud! Student Council has been working on some more spirit days that will be released shortly. We hope everyone enjoys the warmer weather that is making a faint appearance; have a great week!,

This report also provided information on life-cycle costs of various assets and suggested ways in which the money needed could be raised by the municipality, which included increasing taxation, grant applications and borrowing the required funds.

Heritage status for St. Lawrence River Carolyn Thompson Goddard Record Contributor MORRISBURG â€“ The St. Lawrence River, an integral part of the history, culture and economy of South Dundas, is one step closer to being designated as a Heritage River in Canada, thanks to a motion passed by the Council of the Municipality of South Dundas on March 4. The Thousand Islands Area Residentâ€™s Association (TIARA) returned to Council chambers to receive a second endorsement of their plan to have the St. Lawrence designated as a heritage river. Joy Macklem and
Pam Bliss, acting on behalf of TIARA, updated those present on the status of their associationâ€™s proposal. After assuring Council members that the designation is symbolic in nature and would in fact increase the visibility of the municipality, the delegation went on to explain how they must receive support in writing from all the municipalities that border on the river before sending the nomination package to the next level. Deputy Mayor Jim Locke agreed that as no legal rights would be lost by the municipality, such a historic and significant river should be highlighted.
These feelings were echoed by the other councillors, with Councillor Archie Mellan congratulating the group with the preparation of quite a heavy geography and history lesson in their nomination papers. Mayor Steven Byvelds recalled the associationâ€™s first visit to Council a few years previous and agreed that this designation would add to the river as a tourist destination. Acting President of TIARA David Bull explained the process to The Chesterville Record, noting that the organization had been working on this designation for almost seven years, had received
funding for two university students to conduct the research and prepare the necessary documents, and were now in the final stages before submission. According to Bull, they
John Crysler Park in Crysler will receive a cheque for $15,000 from the Eric Baker Family Foundation. According to Pierre Thibault of the Crysler Recreation Committee, this was in response to a letter sent to the Foundation seeking assistance for funds to purchase the materials needed to complete the dressing rooms at the site. Thibault told The Record, â€œThis donation is so overwhelming to us. It proves that people believe and support such a great project not only for our community, township but surrounding
BERWICK â€” While it has been a long process, North Stormont Council moved one step closer to LED lighting at various locations throughout the municipality. Public Works Superintendent, Blake Henderson, presented a detailed report to Council, recommending adoption of â€œthe procurement process undertaken by Local Authority Services Ltd. (LAS)â€?. Council agreed with the recommendation and Real Time Energy will be engaged to proceed, with Deputy Mayor McGimpsey making note of some discrepancies between their proposal and that of ERTH Holdings Inc.
hope to get all the necessary documents to the Canadian Heritage Rivers Systems in time for their 2014 meeting in May. The final stage in the designation will be a private memberâ€™s bill in the federal parliament and Bull is quite hopeful that he will be able have a private memberâ€™s bill presented by
an MP should the need arise. According to the CHRS website, the Rideau River has received its designation and the Ottawa River is only lacking the passing of a federal private memberâ€™s bill to receive its heritage designation.

Islanders at Vikings, Thurs., March 20, 8:00 p.m.
Vikes overpowering Isles, lead series 2-0 Jeff Moore Record Staff CASSELMAN—After winning the St. Lawrence Division of the EOJHL, the Casselman Vikings faced off against the Rideau Division Champions, the Gananoque Islanders. The Vikings knocked off the Akwesasne Wolves in four games and the Winchester Hawks in five, while the Islanders had a slightly tougher path as they beat the Wesport Rideaus in seven and the Prescott Flyers in five. The Vikings line of Taylor Widenmaier, Devin Desnoyers and Nicolas Brazeau have been unstoppable thus far, scoring a combined 54 points in just nine games in the playoffs and if the Islanders had any hope it was to shut that line down. In the first game, the Islanders could not shut them down as Widenmaier scored two goals, both on the power play. The Vikings also had secondary scoring from their defence, who got in on the scoring with Mark Hough scoring once in game one and Thierry Henry picking up the hat trick in game two. The Vikings in the two games have outshot the Islanders 94-45 and outscored them 11-1 in 6-0 and 5-1 wins. Vikings 6 - Islanders 0 GANANOQUEThe
Casselman Vikings took to the road on Sun., March 16, to the Gananoque Recreation Centre to take on the Islanders in game two of the best of seven of the EOJHL Rideau /St. Lawrence Division Final. The Vikings took game one by a score of 5-1 and looked to continue their roll. In the first period, the Vikings hit the scoreboard first as Thierry Henry fired one home from the top of the left circle and beat the Islanders goaltender Ryan Kaszuba. Picking up the assists were Luc Forget and Sebastien Plante just 2:03 into the game. Then at 6:18 they struck again, when Maxime Choquette slammed home a rebound from Kevin Giroux and Simon Cousineau to take the 2-0 lead. The teams traded penalties but most of the play remained in the Islanders’ end as the Vikings outshot them 17-8. The score remained at 2-0 in favour of the Vikings going into the second period. In the second period, the Islanders ran into penalty trouble and the Vikings pounced on the opportunity as Henry got his second of the game, as he snuck in from the point and beat Kaszuba on the left side of the net at 7:41 from Joel Adam and Mark Hough on the power play.

Hough to make it 4-0. Things got worse for the Islanders as the Vikings scored another power play goal when Devin Desnoyers scored from Samuel Gosselin at 15:11. The Vikings scored their sixth goal of the game as Plante picked up his third point of the game as he finished a
play from Yannik Bertrand and Gosselin. The Vikings dominated the game both on the scoreboard and the shot clock as they won 6-0 and outshot the Islanders 18-3 in the third and 49-20 in the game. Vikings’ goalie Gianmarco De Meis picked up the shutout.

Vikes overpowering Islanders Continued from page 12 EOJHL Rideau Division Championship defeating the Prescott Flyers in five games, faced the Vikings, the winners of the St. Lawrence Division Championship who beat out the Winchester Hawks in five. In the first period, the teams just felt each other out with not many scoring chances and a lot of neutral zone play. Then at the 15:58 mark, the Vikings drew first blood on the power play, when Taylor Widenmaier opened the scoring as he and Maxime Choquette jammed away at the puck as it sat in the crease on the right side of the net. Choquette picked up the only assist. The Vikings took the 1-0 lead into the intermission. In the second period,
Choquette scored on a wraparound at 5:58 from Kevin Giroux and Mitch Allen to take the 2-0 lead. At 17:33 the game turned a little nasty as the Islanders’ Chase Hawley appeared to check the Vikings’ Giroux from behind and drilled him into the boards behind their net. Choquette came to the aid of his line mate and got in a little tussle with Hawley. Hawley was assessed a twominute minor for boarding and a 10-minute misconduct, Choquette also picked up a misconduct. The Vikings took the 2-0 lead into the dressing room. In the third period, the Vikings added to lead at 9:33 when Martin Forget scored from the point on an innocent looking shot that somehow found the back of the net. Vikings’ captain Joel
Adam picked up the assist. The Islanders finally got on the board at 12:33 while on the power play when rookie Cole Busscheart finished a play started from former Winchester Hawk Matt Dimillo to make it a 3-1 game. The Vikings answered back quickly on a goal from Giroux on a rebound given out by Islanders’ tender Ryan Kaszuba, from Choquette and Simon Cousineau. The Vikings struck again as Widenmaier jammed one five hole on the power play from Mark Hough and Choquette to make it 5-1. Gianmarco De Meis picked up the win between the pipes turning away 24 of 25 shots, while Kaszuba took the loss making 40 saves.

Panthers too much for Eagles Continued from page 12 until Friday. The make-up game was scheduled for Sun., March 16 in Embrun. In the first period, the Panthers lit the lamp early and often as they scored just 1:47 into the frame as Ryan Kemp scored from Michael Cogan to make it 1-0. Two minutes later the Panthers made it 2-0 as Cody Lavictoire beat Eagles goalie Jeremie Roy from Dexter MacMillan. The Panthers made it 3-0 at 4:26 when Francis Lafond found the back of the net unassisted. Lafond got his second of the game at 8:14 again unassisted to make it 4-0. The Eagles got one back on the power play with just 1:01 remaining in the period. The Panthers led 4-1 going into the second period. In the second, not much happened until there were only eight seconds left on the clock as Panthers’ Sean MacDonald scored unassisted to make it a 5-1 game going into the intermission. In the third period, the teams traded goals late as the Eagles scored their second of the game on the power play at 18:07 but the Panthers scored with only
eight seconds remaining in the game into the empty cage as the Eagles had pulled goaltender Roy in favour of an extra attacker. Panthers’ Captain Brad Hampton hit the vacated net to give the Panthers the 6-2 win and a 3-1 lead in the series. Panthers 9 - Eagles 3 ST. ISIDORE- The Embrun Panthers were back in St. Isidore to take on the Eagles on Mon., March 10 for game three of the NCJHL semi-final. After tying the series at one game apiece on the previous night in a close defensive style game the Panthers looked to take the lead for the first time. In the first period the Eagles came out hard and scored just 20 seconds into the game. The Panthers answered back at 5:53 when Dexter MacMillan scored from Sean MacDonald. The Panthers hit the scoreboard again on the power play as Harrison Wood found twine unassisted at 8:34. The Panthers took a two-goal lead when Francis Lafond scored from Taylor Armstrong and Robbie Gifford at 10:36. The Panthers made it a 4-
1 game at 14:27 as MacMillan scored his second of the game from Michael Cogan. The Panthers were not done there as they beat the Eagles goalie Miguel Laroche at 14:27 on the power play when Shane McPhee beat him from Scott Fleming. The Panthers took the 5-1 lead into the first intermission. In the second period, the Eagles got one back on a power play of their own at 4:40 to close the gap to three goals. The Panthers cooled them down with another goal at 8:59 from MacDonald. At 12:38 of the third the Panthers increased their lead to five as Tommy Olney netted one unassisted. The Eagles got one back but it was all the offence they had on this night scoring at 7:39. The Panthers got that one back at 8:49 as Cody Lavictoire fired one home from McPhee. Closing out the scoring for the Panthers was Fleming as he got the biscuit to the back of the net from Lafond and Olney and they won in a landslide 9-3. Panthers’ goalie Jonathan Cameron took the win.

Russell Rockets optimistic despite losses Submitted by Dave Hatherall The Prescott Russell Rockets girl’s midget basketball team knew what they were heading into this past weekend in Kingston at the Kingston Impact Mega Tournament. The tournament organizers placed the young Rockets in a pool with some tough competition including an opponent ranked ninth in the province. Despite being in Kingston, the Rockets ended up playing three local teams. The first game pitted Russell against the tough and bigger Gloucester Wolverines. The young Rockets played very well in the first quarter, matching
the Wolverines basket for basket. Both Nicole Slater and Madeline Clothier battled hard and supplied lots of rebounds against the taller Green Machine. At the end of the first half, the Rockets trailed by only four points, down 18-14. The start of the second half was not kind to the red Rockets. Gloucester started on an 8-0 run and built a comfortable lead, with some consistent and albeit lucky shooting at times. Bryanna Pidgeon, one of the Rockets quick point guards, picked up the Rockets intensity in the latter part of the third quarter, drawing the more aggressive Wolverines into foul trouble. Her speed and pace
of play gave the Wolverines headaches all game. At the end of the third quarter, the Rockets trailed by 15 and began to try and pressure Gloucester into turnovers. It worked for a short period of time until the Wolverines adjusted their tactics. Kelsey Cochrane, forward for the Rockets, was able to use her speed and shooting to keep the game close. In the end though, the gap was too much for the Rockets to overcome and the Rockets’ record dropped to 0-1 to start the tournament. Game two had the Rockets up against Nepean’s #1 team, which is a ranked as a top 10 team in Ontario. There was no
doubt that the Rockets were going to see some excellent basketball, but could they take something positive away from this game? The Big Blue Machine got things rolling early and jumped off to a quick 8-0 lead, before the Rockets responded back. It was a rocky first half for the Rockets, but they continued to work and not give up. Genevieve O’Keefe, forward, and Sonia Hatherall, point guard, drove hard to the basket all game long and were rewarded with some points off of nice shots and free throws. Kendra Lepack continued to show her rebounding abilities as she took the ball away from
many taller, aggressive Nepean players under the basket. In the end, it was a big deficit and the girls were 0-2, but the Rockets were happy scoring 20+ points against a top 10 team. The final game was not going to affect the Rockets standing and they would not be reaching the medal round. The coaches had a long pre-game chat to discuss the next challenge that this team would face and the fact that the girls were still showing no signs of giving up. The Capital Xelles were the next opponent, another AAA team from Ottawa. Three of the Rockets’ younger players saved their best for last and had extraor-
dinary games against this AAA foe. Danica Ouellette, Kylie Knapp and Dominique Perras, all forwards, played amazing defence and kept the score close with the Xelles up only 26-19 at the half. Erica Provost played her best game of the tournament, playing both point guard and forward. She was able to wrestle away rebounds from the bigger Xelles’ forwards and attack the basket generating some muchneeded offence. Despite the end-to-end battle, which saw four Rockets leaving the floor with injuries, the Rockets couldn’t catch the Xelles. This never-give-up attitude will bode well for them as they prepare for the last 8-10 weeks of the season and the Eastern Ontario and Ontario Championships.

Guides’ goal is to change the world, one pair of shoes at a time RUSSELL — Charlotte Wickens and Kyla Penney of 1st Russell Guides are exceptional — they’re not dreaming of Gucci or Jimmy Choos, but of gently used running shoes, sandals and flats. The two third-year Guides are working towards the highest level Guide Award, the Lady BadenPowell Badge, which requires an international service commitment. The girls have chosen Soles4Souls, a charity which collects gently used shoes and sends them to children who don’t have shoes, all around the globe. Estimates are that every person has at least three pairs of shoes in their closet that are no longer worn and are still in great shape. Wickens and Penney would be happy to help you make some space in your closet. With the support of their
Guide Leader and their school, Mother Teresa Catholic School, the girls make daily announcements about the collection, have set up boxes and encouraged parents, friends and family into cleaning out their closets for shoe donations. Their goal is to collect 200 pairs of shoes to donate to Soles4Souls. But, not content with those donations, the Guides are encouraging everyone in the community to ‘spring clean’ out their closet and drop off gently used shoes to Home Hardware in Russell. They add that if someone doesn’t have shoes to donate, cash donations can also be made, as Soles4Souls does ask for one dollar per pound of shoes to assist with the cost of shipping. Let’s change the world, one pair of shoes at a time.
CASTOR Country By Tom Van Dusen
Agricultural have-not? So here’s the thing… how come Alfred Campus of the University of Guelph was so ready to move on when its closure was announced March 12 and Kemptville Campus was so blindsided? Now don’t get me wrong! I want Alfred to survive as much as I want Kemptville to survive. Both campuses deliver specialized agricultural education – one in French - in an era when farming is becoming more technical and more competitive. Education and training in the field are essential. To close either one of the schools leaves rural Eastern Ontario shortchanged. But the brain trust at U of G doesn’t give a flying cow flap about that or about anything else that happens out our way. Their world revolves around Guelph and Ridgetown in the Western Ontario Promised Land. They figured cutting off the extremities in the east was a quick and easy way to take a chunk out of their $32.5million deficit while protecting the jobs of their chums in the west. To help ease the pain, the brains of the operation have arrogantly invited we eastern lackeys to travel eight hours away to Ridgetown for agricultural courses now available within an hour’s drive. It’s an offer we definitely can refuse. Kemptville College stakeholders, from teachers and students, to farmers and politicians, are rallying to save the 97-year-old institution. Alfred doesn’t need to be saved. Almost miraculously, two Frenchlanguage community colleges have stepped in to spare Alfred. While Kemptville Campus is foundering, unsure of where it’ll go, activities at
Alfred will continue largely uninterrupted. Pierre Riopel, president of College Boreal in Sudbury, said his institution will offer agricultural and veterinary technology courses at Alfred, and Lise Bourgeois, president of Ottawa’s La Cite Collegiale, said her institution will offer nutrition, diet and food science courses. How did that fall into place so smoothly and in such a timely way? Where are the similar new deals for Kemptville? It was clear a day before the formal U of G announcement that Alfred’s fate would not be the same as Kemptville’s. Speaking to me at the Ottawa Valley Farm Show March 11, Grant Crack, Liberal MPP for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell in which Alfred is located and Premier Kathleen Wynne’s parliamentary assistant, said the French-language campus had been negotiating for weeks with a northern community college about a programming takeover. Somebody at Alfred must have been given advance notice of the closures. As I underlined, GPR is Liberal and so is the provincial government. Kemptville is in the Progressive Conservative stronghold of LeedsGrenville held by Steve Clark. Could that be a connection between one campus being pulled from the fire and the other left to its own devices? To be fair, one thing remains to be saved at Alfred, maybe two things, the organic milk research program and the rural wastewater management research facility. While I haven’t heard anything about the wastewater facility, the organic milk program has a powerful
advocate… Homestead Organics owner Tom Manley. The Organic Council of Ontario has called for preservation of the program through Manley who’s also president of the Alfred College Community Advisory Council. Pointing out that Alfred hosts the only certified organic dairy research and teaching farm in North America, Manley indicated its potential loss comes at a time when organic is the fastest growing segment of agri-food. “Organic production and profitability is extremely dependent on research, education and knowledge transfer, and Ontario has the only organic research herd to perform this vital function.” He called for a simultaneous transfer of the organic program and quota provided by Dairy Farmers of Ontario to Boreal and Cite Collegiale. At its upcoming annual general meeting, the organic council will seek a unanimous resolution supporting keeping the program in place at Alfred. All well and good! Meanwhile, an entire campus serving more than 500 students, providing 100 full and parttime jobs, is about to get guillotined in Kemptville. That must not be allowed to happen. As Chesterville grain farmer and elevator operator Marty Derks said at last Saturday’s rally to save the college, Kemptville was the original social network for agriculture in Eastern Ontario. Removing what’s once again being lovingly referred to as Kemptville College of Agricultural Technology will rip out the guts, the heart of that network and make Eastern Ontario an agricultural have-not of the first order.
