Moose Creek groundbreaking

MOOSE CREEK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Habitat for Humanity Seaway Valley will break ground on its latest project, 10 a.m. this Sat., May 5 in Moose Creek. The home will be built for Penny Grabs and her three young children. The completion of yet another Habitat for Humanity home not only provides one family with a place to call home, but enables them to acquire assets, break the cycle of poverty and reduce their dependence on other forms of social assistance. As such, this home is not just an investment in one family, but an investment in a stronger economy and a better standard of living for all Canadians.

Local Titanic mystery resurfaces Florida family seeks DNA tests to show Loraine Allison survived, lived long life Nelson Zandbergen Record Staff CHESTERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; DNA tests may finally settle an old claim that Titanic victim Loraine Allison of Chesterville actually survived the tragedy as a toddler and lived out her life in Britain and the U.S. The controversial narrative has re-emerged after 70 years, spearheaded by the Florida-based granddaughter of the late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Loraine Kramer,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; who made waves in 1940 by asserting in a U.S. radio appeal that she was, in fact, Loraine Allison, daughter of deceased millionaire banker Hudson Allison and his American-born wife, Bess Waldo Daniels.

Moose on the loose

The Record thanks all of the submitters of digital photos of what appears to be this same moose in its recent travels from Berwick to Morewood and maybe even Russell. A staff photographer managed to snap this shot of the gregarious young beast as it walked a treeline in a farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s field behind Streeterpete Street in Chesterville April 26. The moose was later seen lounging in a field just across County Rd. 43. Zandbergen photo



Loraine Allison, aka Helen Loraine Allison, was just shy of her third birthday when the White Star luxury liner sank in the north Atlantic 28 years earlier. Along with her parents, the historical record places the tot among the maritime disasterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1,514 dead. Kramer abandoned her contrary claim in 1945, five years after going public, following the death of her Morrisburg-based lawyer, Arthur Flynn. But she never ceased believing she was Loraine Allison until her own death in the early 1990s, says Debrina Woods, who seeks a definitive answer through DNA testing not available during Continued on page 6

Cancer can be beaten at WDMH Lois Ann Baker Record Staff CHESTERVILLE — For a small rural hospital, District Winchester Memorial Hospital can rival larger urban centres when it comes to breast cancer care. The hospital launched the Breast Care program about two years ago and is seeing great feedback and response. “The specific goal (of the program) is to do a rapid assessment of an abnormality found on imaging,” said Dr. Jim Blakslee, Chief Surgeon. In the past, the time from finding an abnormality to the start of treatment could take months as every test had to go back to the family doctor for assessment or evaluation. The doctor would then send the patient for more tests, usually Xrays or ultrasounds. With the new Breast Care program, the radiologist will speak to the patient right away and arrangements are made immediately for follow-up testing. If a biopsy is required, WDMH is in partnership

with the Ottawa Hospital’s Women’s Breast Health Centre, and an appointment is immediately arranged. At the same time, the patient is referred to one of the three surgeons on staff. The patient is informed of the biopsy date, and once done, the biopsy results go to the consulting surgeon and the family doctor. The family doctor and the patient are kept informed every step of the way. WDMH’s experienced office staff are in constant contact with the patient and are well trained on how to calm the anxieties of a cancer patient. If the diagnosis is cancer, the surgery is done at WDMH in a very short period of time, usually two weeks after the “decision to treat” date. That date pertains to the date when all necessary information has been received, tests have all been concluded and a decision has been made as to the nature of the surgery required. That time line is “dramatically less than most urban centres,” said Blakslee. “What we can provide

for women is a rapid assessment of an abnormality, a very nurturing and safe environment where they know they are somebody, and a very high quality of surgical intervention,” said Blakslee. And it doesn’t stop there, he added. Next step is a referral to an oncologist at the cancer treatment centre in Ottawa where further treatment is decided upon. Based on the stage of cancer, the patient’s age and the characteristics of the tumour, the oncologist could recommend radiation, chemotherapy or any other treatment he deems necessary. If chemotherapy is needed, WDMH can treat the patient 99 per cent of the time. A lot of anxiety can come from assigning a surgeon before the actual diagnosis of cancer has been established, and WDMH acknowledges that. However, in the new streamlined program, being assigned to a surgeon puts you into the surgical queue.

“Even if it is something totally benign,” said nurse Linda Johnson, “the best person to give you the pathology reports is the surgeon.” And as Blakslee pointed out even a benign tumour can be indicative of another issue. Patients are given a direct line into the diagnostic imaging centre and advised to call if they haven’t heard anything within two weeks. “It’s very important for them to know they have a support system in place,” said Blakslee. The Breast Care program is loosely based on one Blakslee had seen in Toronto, but has been tailored to suit the area’s scale, resources and patient population. Feedback on the program has been very positive “Ultimately it’s the best care for the patient,” said Johnson. “With breast cancer, we are doing everything that is needed, other than the biopsy and

radiation treatment.” “We are all part of Cancer Care Ontario,” said Cholly Bolland, CEO of WDMH, “Whether you are in Ottawa or Winchester, we are all measured on the same quality indicators.” Bolland added that all physicians are affiliated with the University of Ottawa, and the nurses have all been trained in Ottawa, so the care received at WDMH is at the same, if not higher standards, as you would receive in Ottawa. In addition to the partnership with Ottawa, WDMH’s doctors are also

involved with the MultiCancer Disciplinary Conference (MDCC), a weekly virtual conference held to discuss cases and the best treatment for them. “When we do have a case that is a bit more challenging, we can dial into the conference,” said Blakslee. He added that he has been doing this (cancer surgery) for over 15 years and is still learning. “You can always see something you haven’t seen before,” he said, “(MDCC) a beefed up version of talking to a colleague in the hallway.

WDMH executive commemorated WINCHESTER — Funeral services took place April 24 in Kanata for the late Karl Samuelson, a Winchester District Memorial Hospital executive who died suddenly after attending the institution’s annual volunteer tea, April 19. Samuelson was hired last year as WDMH’s first vice president of seniors’ services in advance of the February purchase of Dundas Manor, which he also served as administrator. The 55-year-old father of two helped out serving food and drinks to the hospital’s community of volunteers on the afternoon of his death from an apparent heart attack. He experienced chest pains upon return to the hospital and died a couple of hours later at the institution that employed him.

So little common sense When exactly in our evolution did we lose common sense? Have we become so clueless that we need our governments to pass laws stopping us from doing things that could bring us harm? Back when wearing seat belts became a law, the same question was raised. If studies proved that seat belts saved lives, why was it necessary for law-makers to pass a law forcing the practice? Common sense would dictate that the simple safety precaution of placing a belt across your lap would be the difference between a sore shoulder if you were in an accident or being thrown through the windshield head first. But no, we couldn’t figure that out on our own, they made it law. Next was texting while driving. Common sense went right out the window on that one, too. Any idiot could see that if you are texting while you are behind the wheel of any vehicle you obviously don’t have your eyes on the road. And if your eyes aren’t on the road, how can you tell where you are going? And if you don’t know where you are going, how do you know you are not going to plow into that gang of school kids, or the back of that tractor-trailer? We couldn’t figure that one out either so, they made it law. The news came out from California that they are actually looking into passing a law that prohibits texting or talking on a cellphone if you are riding a bike. Really? We need a law to tell us that again, we are on something that moves and we can’t be bothered to watch where we are going. There have been numerous videos all over the internet depicting clueless people texting while walking and falling into holes, or off sidewalks or into buildings. Think we need another law? Let’s just hope that common sense comes back in style before we find it’s illegal to breathe in order to prevent deaths from choking. Lois Ann Baker

Little house off the Goldfield

Earlier this spring, Nielsen Antiques proprietor Rick Nielsen of Alexandria (right) and worker Andy Crowe spent a couple of weeks disassembling an abandoned old log house at the Kagi farm on N. Stormont Concession 3-4, just off Goldfield Rd. Nielsen had already sold the structure for reassembly elsewhere.



May 5, 1982 CHESTERVILLE — Chesterville Village has purchased the former Derk’s Farm Equipment Building on Queen St. W., as the new location for the village fire department. In a press release handed out Monday members of the village council said the municipality has acquired the building and a building lot in front for $75,000.

May 3, 1962 One hundred and eighty county farmers and their wives enjoyed a well-conducted, informative and humourous evening, under the chairmanship of Basil Dawley, president of the Dundas County Federation of Agriculture, at a combined banquet and annual director’s meeting. Art Musgrave, vice president of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, was guest speaker. His speech, forceful and humourous, emphasized the importance of farmers taking an active part in their farm organizations and not getting into the shiftless habit of leaving everything to the executives of the organizations.

MAPLE RIDGE — Winchester Township residential ratepayers who support the public school system will see taxes increase about $50 on a home assessed at $3,000 following township council’s adoption of its 1982 budget here Monday night. Although the township managed to hold the line on its own spending, education was once again the villain in increasing taxes. Of the 16.21-mill increase on residential and farm properties paying taxes to the public school system, education accounted for 10.11 mills – or about $10 per $1,000 of assessment.

Ontario-St.Lawrence Development Commission parks and other facilities including Upper Canada Village will open for the 1962 season in just a few weeks. And park officials anticipate a year equal to the record-breaking season in 1961. Gerald Arthurs, public relations officer for the commission, said the bulk of winter maintenance and

improvement work, including expansion of the system’s camping facilities, is completed. Members of the parks staff are undertaking a lastminute general clean-up of all facilities.

1932 May 5, 1932 The village council was approached at its last meeting with a view of having daylight saving time adopted in the village. Mr. George McMahon presented the case for the village, stating that he had been approached by a number of people who are desirous of having the change made and that in consultation with a number of farmers he found them decidedly in favour of daylight saving. Since the last attempt to go on the new time the banks in the village have set their opening time at ten o’clock which makes it very convenient for farmers wishing to do business at the banks when they come to town with their morning’s milk. The adoption of daylight saving time would give them a clear hour’s gain.

Woodlot regulations the clear-cut answer in SD&G The Editor: My origin is Middlesex County, where Lake Huron pipeline water replaces dry wells and a low water table. One cause of low water table is clear-cutting of

Pipeline water involves millions of dollars expenditure by taxpayers. Plus landowners pay for access and metered water increases in price to finance repair and maintenance. There can be leaks requiring days of no water for pipeline repair. As a result, livestock is endangered and personal health threatened. SD&G should establish regulations to maintain and replace woodlots which act as reservoirs for underground water. To paraphrase the song: “You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone. Clear cut for a soy bean plot.” Eileen Webb South Mountain

Letter writer Eileen Webb suggests establishing some controls over the clearing of woodlots for farmland. The photo was taken on County Rd. 16. Zandbergen photo

Let public give brand a hand The Editor: Since newspapers published that a decision has been reached re: the $35,000 branding: We would like to suggest that a public input campaign is offered to select a slogan/tagline for the final completed SD&G logo brand. Our web site, has set up an email contact platform, We would hope our local newspapers

would encourage that we tap into the amazing talent in our community and stimulate public involvement. We suggest the public be asked directly to email suggestions of a tri-county branding to the aforementioned address. The web site will then stream the suggestions and solicit e-mail responses to culminate a referendum-voted winner. P.J. Breaks ‘4C Chair’ Mountain

Titanic claim Continued from the front her maternal grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifetime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do everything to alleviate all doubt and have the truth come out after 100 years,â&#x20AC;? the Palm Beach resident told The Record last week. This month, she hopes to complete a comparison of DNA taken from her own 82-year-old mother, Adele â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kramerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with samples collected from the mouths of known cousins of Loraine Allison. The experts at a popular DNA testing service already chosen by Woods would then be able to deterimine if her mother is a blood relative to Loraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kin, to a degree only possible if Kramer herself was the Loraine Allison. While growing up, Woods, 60, remembers â&#x20AC;&#x153;a pallâ&#x20AC;? around the unresolved Titanic matter for her grandmother, with whom she was very close. Kramer never talked about it, she said, though Woods does recall her telling a bedtime story about cold water and bright lights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of my family lore,â&#x20AC;? explained the private chef and estate manager, who felt â&#x20AC;&#x153;compelledâ&#x20AC;? to â&#x20AC;&#x153;definitivelyâ&#x20AC;? establish her lineage as a matter of

honour after family watching a 100th anniversary Titanic anniversary TV special last month. With her newfound resolve, Woods dug into a suitcase full of her grandmother â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal effects from the 1940s, previously stored in her garage unopened and otherwise treated as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pandoraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boxâ&#x20AC;? over the last 70 years. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assembled 12 binders full of old correspondence, including letters from members of the Allison and Daniels families during the period. Many of the missives from the Allison clan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; though not all, she says â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are sympathetic to her grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case. Some refer to actual visits that occurred between Kramer and her putative kin at the time. Striking resemblance One writer, a Dr. Allison, noted that Kramer bore a striking resemblance to Hudson Allison, she said. Woods herself came to that conclusion several years ago during a visit to the Titanic The Experience museum in Orlando, Florida, several years ago. Upon entry, she saw Hudsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photo but said she immediately recognized her grandmother staring back at

her before reading the nameplate. The bodies of Loraine Allison and her mother were never recovered when the Titanic sank April 15, 1912, after striking an iceberg. The date marks a soaring obelisk at the Allison family gravesite at Maple Ridge Cemetery, with the names of Hudson â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whose body was retrieved â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bess and Loraine chiseled into the granite. Today recognized as the only first-class child victim of the tragedy, Loraine was at one point in a lifeboat with her mother, according to popularly reported accounts. But in a fateful decision, Bess famously left the craft and took her daughter back onto the stricken ship to search for her second child, Hudson Trevor; in a cruel irony, the baby boy was safely aboard another lifeboat with family maid Sarah Daniels (no relation to Bess). However, based on a key letter in Kramerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suitcase, Woods maintains that Loraine ultimately found sanctuary on a lifeboat without either of her parents. She consequently survived to grow up in obscurity in British boarding schools, believing she was the child of an English widower, James Hyde, a travelling geologist who rarely visited Kramer at the institutions responsible for raising her. According to the Kramer

account, Hyde gave up the pretense of paternity and explained her true origins in a 1940 letter after she requested help procuring a birth certificate as a then 31-yearold married woman with five children in Michigan. He claimed to have been on the Titanic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I looked up toward the rail. I saw Mr. Allison holding his little daughter in his arms,â&#x20AC;? says the text of Hydeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter supplied by Woods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried to get out of the lifeboat to give him my seat but was shoved back. He told me his wife and baby son were in another lifeboat. He leaned far out over the rail and handed the little girl to me. He begged me to take care of her.â&#x20AC;? As chronicled by the Tribune in Chicago September of that year, Kramer went public with the story by appearing on the We the People radio program sponsored by Grape Nuts Cereal. Woods possesses the resulting mail that inudated her grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appeal for assistance locating biological family members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They began receiving telegrams before she had even the left the studio in New York.â&#x20AC;? Canadian The government did issue Kramer with a birth certificate, she also pointed out, one that bears the same date as Loraine Allisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s date of birth.

She also said that, from her earliest childhood, her granddmother owned a locket â&#x20AC;&#x201C; since lost â&#x20AC;&#x201C; containing the images of Bess and Trevor Allison. One of Bessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sisters later confirmed their identities, her granddaughter said. There are several other points of intrigue she claims to be exploring in her granddmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reams of paperwork, including the notion that Hyde was actually Titanic designer Thomas Andrews, presumed to have drowned in the disaster. But for Woods, who is writing a book and hopes to visit Chesterville, the issue boils down to restoring her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honour â&#x20AC;&#x153;without prejudice.â&#x20AC;? Should the DNA evidence prove that Kramer was Loraine Allison, her granddaughter intends to bring her ashes to the Allison burial plot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to reunite them and let his soul be at peace,â&#x20AC;? she said of Hudson Allison. Money is not a factor in her motivation, said Woods, who is writing a book about her family history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no money,â&#x20AC;? she added, asserting those heirs who landed the â&#x20AC;&#x153;substantialâ&#x20AC;? Allison fortune lost it in the 1929 stock market crash. DNA sought Charles Graham of Chesterville, Loraine Allisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first cousin once removed, acknowledged that some members of the

Allison clan had looked into a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim decades ago. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to make of the attempt to add DNA testing to the mix today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? said Graham, who had not yet spoken with Woods when contacted by The Record last week. However, another cousin of Loraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but on the Daniels side of the family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has agreed to participate in the effort. Engineer Jim Nieman of Sandpoint, Idaho, is the grandson of Bessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Maybelle Daniels Nieman. donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Nobody really knows,â&#x20AC;? Nieman said of the Kramer claim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to tell. Some of the things kind of matched,â&#x20AC;? he said, when asked about his grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attitude toward her potentially longlost niece, with whom she had corresponded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At times, she felt empathetic.â&#x20AC;? He recalled that his late father, named Hudson after Hudson Allison, had mentioned the story as well. Nieman considered it â&#x20AC;&#x153;not a big dealâ&#x20AC;? to contribute a cotton swabbing from the inside of his mouth to help clear up the matter. The DNA collection method involves shipping the cotton swab to the DNA service handling the science for Woods.

Transplant recipient urges public to sign donor cards

they would do it. They would miss out on the organ if they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to get there.â&#x20AC;? While OHIP paid hospital expenses, the added expense of hotels, meals and travel can be daunting. However, Joyce said that they owed a lot to WestJet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They covered his flighs and took care of him like royalty,â&#x20AC;? she said. WestJetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hope Air program paid for all of his flights to Toronto, easing the burden a little bit. Even through this whole ordeal, the Ouderkirks have nothing but praise for all of the hospitals, doctors and nurses they have dealt with. They felt the level of care from Cornwall and Toronto was exceptional and instrumental in his prognosis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to thank everybody,â&#x20AC;? said Sheldon, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to miss anybody.â&#x20AC;? Ouderkirk will have to be on anti-rejection medication for the rest of his life, but things are progressing nicely. He was advised by his doctor that if things keep going the way they are, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible he could be back at work in July. The final thought that the Ouderkirks would like everyone to know is that the transplant system does work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can get just one person to sign a donor card, it will be worth it,â&#x20AC;? said Joyce, adding that both of them have already signed their own donor cards.

Lois Ann Baker Record Staff If you are still hesitating about signing that donor card, maybe you should have a talk with Sheldon Ouderkirk. Ouderkirk was diagnosed with liver disease and after his condition had deteriorated to where he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, he was placed on the organ donor list. The Toronto hospital provided him with a beeper so they could notify him as soon as a matching liver became available. But while he was in the Cornwall hospital due to an unrelated issue, the beeper did go off, and Ouderkirk missed the call. He had been heavily sedated and the beeper was in his coat pocket in the closet, so neither Ouderkirk or the nurses heard it. When his wife Joyce got home that evening, there were three messages on the phone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Toronto General Hospital, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that you call us back now,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Joyce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The next message was, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sheldon, you really have to call us back.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The third message was, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Call your coordinator in the morning.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? It was then that Joyce knew they missed the

opportunity for a transplant. Joyce said she called Sheldon at the hospital and asked where his beeper was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought the nurses should have taken it,â&#x20AC;? said Joyce, but she was quick not to apply blame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meant to be,â&#x20AC;? she said. After that, Joyce noticed that Sheldon appeared to be getting worse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was dying,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I left for work he was on the couch and when I came home, he was still on the couch.â&#x20AC;? Knowing that they had missed that first liver was constantly on the back of her mind as she watched Sheldon deteriorate. One day, though, a call did come in from his doctor in Toronto. His blood was constantly being monitored and his doctor called to notify them that Sheldonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potassium levels were very low. He advised them to go the Cornwall Community Hospital and get treatment to bring the levels up. The doctor also advised Joyce to make sure Sheldon was taken to the hospital immediately and that he was back home that night. While the Ouderkirks thought it was a weird request, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t question it.

Unfortunately, hospitals being what they are, Sheldon did not get home until the next day around 10:30 p.m. After settling down for the night, the phone rang. It was the Toronto General Hospital asking for Sheldon. After speaking for a few minutes, Sheldon looked at his wife and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a liver.â&#x20AC;? Then came the scramble to get Sheldon to Toronto. Due to the late hour, there were no flights available and the nurse advised them to get in the car and start driving. The nurse also advised them that if they got caught in traffic or bad weather, to immediately call the hospital and they would send someone to get them. They arrived at the hospital at 5:30 a.m. While Sheldon was being prepared for surgery, they learned that the liver he was to get belonged to a person on lifesupport and the family was having a hard time letting go. Joyce asked if another potential transplant recipient had been called and was told that this liver was a perfect match for Sheldon, so he was the only one being called. Sheldon had to endure a full day of testing before the

surgery to make sure everything was just right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was dying,â&#x20AC;? said Joyce, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He probably had a month.â&#x20AC;? His liver was the size of two hard boiled eggs. There are other things besides physical health that haunt a transplant patient. The psychological toll can be trying. The Ouderkirks found a lot of prejudice against a liver patient. A lot of people wrongly assume someone with liver failure must be an alcoholic, which is not the case. As a matter of fact, someone who has abused their liver through alcohol is more likely not to be allowed a transplant. As for the family members of the donated liver, Sheldon is planning on writing a thank you letter to be given to the family, and he is hoping to meet them one day. The letter will be written

once Sheldon is stronger, both physically and mentally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because I had a hard time at first,â&#x20AC;? said Sheldon, his voice breaking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yea, you had a hard time just accepting the fact that someone gave you that chance,â&#x20AC;? said Joyce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a long time...why am I here?â&#x20AC;? said Sheldon, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why am I living?â&#x20AC;? One of the hardest parts of the experience was watching other people die waiting for transplants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If more people donated organs, it could have saved a lot of them,â&#x20AC;? said Sheldon. What the Ouderkirks found frustrating about the ordeal is that there are no programs out there for transplant patients to help with the enormous costs involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For someone who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anything,â&#x20AC;? said Joyce, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how

Seed Growers donate EASTERN ONTARIO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association conducted a regular spring ritual during a recent board of directors meeting, giving away thousands of dollars to worthwhile agricultural causes across Eastern Ontario and beyond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Much of the revenue from our annual Ottawa Valley Farm Show is returned to the community to support important organizations such as 4-H,â&#x20AC;? said Seed Growers president Bruce Hudson of Kinburn, a long-time 4-H volunteer. While the final tally isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in, the 85th anniversary farm show held last month at the new CE Centre turned a profit despite increased expenses over 2011 of about $40,000, the last time the show was held at Lansdowne Park. Added costs were offset through a $1 increase in the square footage rental fee and a hike in the admission price for adults to $10. Beneficiaries of the latest round of OVSGA donations include Kemptville Campus

of the University of Guelph where researchers are getting $5,000 for each of four projects including: Evaluation of New Fungicides in Spring Smart Spring Cereals; Cereals; Soybean Monitoring for Rust and Alphids; and Red Clover Under-seeded in Spring Wheat. Also benefiting are 4-H programs including the annual regional show in Metcalfe, a fundraising golf tournament, each of 11 counties in Eastern Ontario, and several field crop clubs, for a total of about $7,000. The Seed Growers also donate about $2,000 worth of space and booth accessories for the 4-H display and activities at the farm show. For the first time, directors decided to support the Royal Winter Fair-based Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame with $500; the Seed Growers are already major supporters of the Milton-based Ontario Agricultural Hall of Fame, including sponsoring a â&#x20AC;&#x153;mini hallâ&#x20AC;? of Eastern Ontario inductees on the Kemptville campus.

Finally, directors rounded off proceeds from the annual farm show auction to $5,000

to be given once again to the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.




Moose Creek house fire

North Stormont firefighters responded to a single-house fire in the village of Moose Creek on April 17, just before 2 p.m. The flames had completely engulfed the house, which was a total loss. Firefighters worked to prevent the fire from spreading to neighboring buildings and brush. One neighboring houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s siding was melted, but other than that nothing else was damaged. One witness, driving by the fire, said that there was a huge cloud of black smoke that he was able to see all the way from St. Albert. No one was injured in the blaze and a cause is still undetermined. Suspicious activity is not suspected. An investigation by the homeownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; insurance company has begun.

CCVS at North Dundas Girls Rugby May 4, 1 p.m.

Devils, Warriors face off in girls rugby season opener Darren Matte Record Sports MAPLE RIDGE— The SD&G high school girls rugby season kicked off for a pair of local teams in action on April 27, with the North Dundas Devils hosting the Tagwi Warriors in a cold and windy affair. Last season, when the two teams met late in the regular season, it was Tagwi who handed North Dundas their first loss with a 7-0 win. This year, many of the Devils returned as the team sports only six new players. The returning veterans took to the pitch to avenge the loss from last season. Tagwi took the opening possession and was working their way into the North Dundas zone. They were unable to get into scoring position before turning the ball over. North Dundas had a strong run from Lesley Schmid. When she was finally brought down, the Devils maintained possession off the ruck and worked the ball down the line. It wound up in the hands of Sarah Churchill who avoided a diving Hanna Mullin just feet before the goal line and then plowed through another defender to touch the ball down for the try. The wind was a huge factor blowing south, making the kicking game for North Dundas almost impossible in the first half, 5-0 Devils.

Tagwi was able to apply some more pressure, but again the Devils forced a turnover and started charging the other way. The Devils again took possession after a ruck and this time it was Schmid who got the ball and rammed it up the middle to make it 10-0 for the home side. The Devils kept attacking, they held onto possession after the kick off and worked deep into the Tagwi territory. Churchill got the ball again and lunged over the line just before the whistle blew for halftime with North Dundas up 15-0. The wind continued to be a big factor in the second, but now the Warriors had to run into it. North Dundas got down to the Tagwi goal line, but the defense came up big for Tagwi, holding their ground and keeping North Dundas out. However, the Devils would keep at it and finally Erin Elliot was able to squeak in making it 20-0. Stefanie Nielson was finally kicking with the wind at her back and was able to convert the kick extending the lead to 22-0. Despite being down, the Warriors continued to fight. They were eventually rewarded when Autumn Marfurt-Breakenridge crossed over and then Kelsey MacIntosh converted the two points. Unfortunately for Tagwi,

that was as close as they came. North Dundas added one more score, this time by Emily Cameron and took the opener 27-7. The win was just the way the Devils wanted to begin their season. With an experienced team, the hopes are high among the coaching staff. “Our goal this season is to win it (the league),” said assistant coach Gilles Lepage. “We expect to win mainly because of our experience. We thought the girls played quite well, today, considering how cold and windy it was out.” Head coach Scott Reaney was pleased with his team’s veterans and rookies. “The girls are indeed showing more confidence. Even new players are taking good hard runs with the ball, and not hesitating to pick it up and go.” On the other side of the field, the Tagwi team is going through a bit of a rebuild. The team, coached by Scott MacKenzie, is split about 50/50 with new and returning players. Last season it took the team a few games to register their first try, scoring in their opener accomplished one of their season goals. Both teams will be back in action on Friday with home games. The Devils will play host to Cornwall Collegiate, while St. Joe’s visits Tagwi. Kickoff for both games is at 1 p.m.

First of the season!

CHESTERVILLE— The Chesterville Women’s Ball Hockey League officially kicked off on April 26 at the Chesterville Arena. The league sports four teams again this year and began with Green taking on Red and Blue against Yellow. Green 4 Red 3 Red opened the scoring in this one with a first period goal by Jackie Morris with 10:55 to go. Green responded with six minutes remaining as Marissa Imrie scored to even things at one. The Red team went

ahead in the second when Janice Casselman found the back of the net. With time running out Green once again found the equalizer, this time off the stick of Kayla Beckstead, 2-2 after two. Green managed their first lead of the game when Brittany Beckstead scored with 8:40 to go in the third. Then, with 4:20 to go, Patti Hall scored to put Green up 4-2. Red managed to cut the lead to 4-3 as Casselman notched her second of the contest with 1:15 left, but it was not enough as Green

held on for the 4-3 win. Blue 2 Yellow 2 Blue got on the board first with the only goal in the opening period just 1:35 in, from Megan Chamberlain. Yellow got it back later in the second period with a goal by Jodie Crump, which set off a late flurry of activity. Just over a minute after Yellow tied it, Blue regained the league when Theresa Schoones scored. But before the period was done, Cinnamon Boulanger scored for Yellow sending the game to the third tied at two. Neither team was able to find the net in the third and the teams had to settle for the 2-2 draw.

Woodstock Slammers take Fred Page Cup

KANATAâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Despite having a 50 per cent chance to have a team from the league represent Eastern Canada at the Royal Bank Cup, the CCHL champion Nepean Raiders and hosts of the Fred Page Cup, the Kanata Stallions, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop the Woodstock Slammers, Maritime Hockey League champs, who went 40 in the tournament, including defeating the Raiders twice, once in the round robin and again in the finals to claim the prize. Woodstock beat Kanata (4-3), Princeville, the Quebec Junior AAA champions (5-3) and then the Raiders (3-2) to gain a bye straight to the finals. Nepean defeated Princeville (4-0), then were shocked by Kanata, a team that finished 43 points behind them in the regular season standings (2-1 in OT), before losing to Woodstock. Kanata and Nepean met in the semi-finals where Nepean got their revenge against the hosts with a 6-1 decision. It set up an exciting finale between the Slammers and Raiders. The game was tied at two with 2:19 to go in the

third, when Woodstock found the winner off the stick of Sam Caldwell. That was the difference, as the Slammers will now advance to Humboldt, Saskatchewan for the RBC Cup May 5-13. It was a disappointing end for the Nepean Raiders who, after their strong season, came so close to playing for a national championship. The focus now turns to the NHL draft for the team. Currently, defenseman and former Winchester Hawk, Mac Weegar, is on Central Scouting rankings at 198 among North American skaters. Weegar had 50 points in the regular season and added six in the playoffs. He was second among CCHL defensemen in regular season scoring. Weegar is not the only Raider that could potentially be taken. Another defender from the team, Ben Hutton, is also on the ranking database at number 200. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goalie from last season and current member of the Oshawa Generals, Daniel Altshuller, who is the son of Raiders owner, Bryan Altshuller, is 12th in the rankings among North American goalies.
