OPP to dispatch nurse for mental health calls

LCMH to hire health professional for OPP collaboration LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com There is a new mental health initiative coming to Lanark County will see the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Lanark County Mental Health (LCMH)

band together to offer help for those suffering with mental health issues. The OPP were successful with a Proceeds of Crime grant submission to obtain registered community mental health nurse. This person will be hired

by LCMH within about 60 days and will have an office at the OPP detachment in Perth. "We were one of six OPP detachments in the province to get one of these grants (in May), so we're pretty proud of that," said Insp. Derek Needham on Tuesday, June 5, who spoke about this at the detachment in Perth.

Needham, along with Diana McDonnell, the executive director at LCMH, travelled to Wellington County to study the model between the Guelph Police Service and Canadian Mental Health in Wellington County, who employs four mental health nurses. McDonnell said they got lots of information from the Guelph trip, and then submitted a grant proposal to the South East Local Health Integration Network, to make them aware of the need, and to seek funding. They weren't successful with the funding application, but McDonnell said she is hopeful that the second grant proposal she recently submitted will be accepted for the 2018/19 fiscal year. LCMH will subsidize the position this year for a .8 staff member. "(Needham) and I have been talking about a collaboration like this for a number of years, and we're glad that it's finally coming to fruition," McDonnell said. "We're excited about this opportunity to be able to collaborate on it." For the OPP officers, Needham said this new health care professional will be at the officers' disposal for any call where there are obvious or apparent mental health issues. Where it became relevant was in cases of where there was consideration by the officer to apprehend the person or bring them to the hospital under the Mental Health Act. "If we think someone is suffering under the Mental Health Act and they are essentially a danger to themselves or to others then we apprehend them and bring them to the Emergency Room and a physician will evaluate them and decide whether or not to hold them for a 72-hour evaluation," Needham said. Police will now have an option to call on the mental health nurse to help articulate those needs to the physician. "But more importantly, in cases in which there is something that isn't quite right, and the person is struggling in some way and

Marc Hemmerick (administrative support), who will be helping dispatch the new health nurse that will be on board at the detachment in the coming weeks. the officer doesn't want to leave the person in their house, but the chances of them being admitted to the hospital under a Form 1 of the Mental Health Act is slim, now there is something in between. That mental health nurse is part of the health system, can connect that person with (services) on the spot without having to take them out of their homes." OPP hope to reduce the number of people brought to the ER. Lanark County OPP have been "very successful" with the situation table. The number of people referred to it and who have received intervention strategies, have lower repeat offender stats. "We have had a very good track record in the past two years in Lanark County and we have the stats to back that up," he said. "What we're seeking to do with this collaborative is advance that yard stick a little bit further." Instead of waiting for third, fourth, fifth contact with police, Needham said, "We're maybe getting to

these people on first contact. We might not see them again - the ER may not see them repetitively - so we can reduce some visits." The public health nurse will be hired by LCMH and work out of the Lanark County OPP detachment, and will be deployed when needed by the officers. "We will also be checking on people who are known to us who have some struggle and an increased risk; we'll go out and check on them (with the health nurse) and see how they're doing," Needham said. For instance, the number of suicides in Lanark County may surprise some people he said, and having a mental health nurse on staff may help save a life. "There are so many benefits to this," Needham said. "It's a pretty exciting position to be in. We have the business demand for two full time mental health nurses, but the funding will only allow for (.8) at this time." The detachment has l See NURSE, page 5

At a Special Community Services Committee meeting on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 county council directed that staff move forward with the recommendation to assume the management and administration of the Lanark County Housing Corporation (LCHC) under the direct umbrella of the County operations, more specifically the Lanark County Social Services Department. The status of the LCHC will be maintained as a "shell corporation." Currently the Lanark County Housing Corporation operates as a separate corporation reporting to a Board of Directors, with the role of the service manager being provided by the Lanark County Social Services Department. While the Lanark County Housing Corporation has provided excellent service to its tenants across the county this merger supports integration of county services, provides for efficiencies, simplifies reporting and approval lines, and will ensure effective long-term service planning. It is also seen as a very positive step in the delivery of affordable housing and the access to service that will be provided to the tenants of the approximately 533 housing units at 26 different locations in Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place, Perth and Smiths Falls. Ultimately, housing tenants will be afforded the opportunity to access full services through Lanark County Social Services offices to meet their needs. The social housing tenants, community stakeholders and members of the public can expect a seamless transition with minimal, if any disruptions. Management of the Service Delivery Transition Plan will be supported by an Implementation Team, consisting of the Lanark County Director of Social Services, Finance, HR and the Interim Executive Director of LCHC. The plan has been developed to guide the integration of the Lanark County Housing Corporation (LCHC) into the Lanark County Social Housing program, under the Social Services Department, no later than Jan. 1, 2019. The new department will be entitled Housing Services, and the current 13 LCHC staff will be offered employment with Lanark County. – submitted by Lanark County

Seventeen local young women have received monetary awards from the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Perth & District to help them achieve their post-secondary educational goals. It is always a humbling experience for the Education Awards committee to review the application forms, conduct interviews and shortlist the candidates. Most of us feel we'd never have made the cut, back in our day! One of this year's recipients, Cristi Wilkinson, won the Helen Rose Centenarian Award, a one-time award provided by the family of Helen Rose Smith in honour of her 100th birthday last August. The 2018 Education Award recipients are going on to post-secondary institutions to study in a wide range of disciplines: psychology, neuroscience, kinesiology, nursing, architecture and engineering, environmental science, dentistry, social sciences, forensic science, developmental services work, aviation management, global development, accounting, early childhood education and office management. They are remarkable women with guts, grit and drive. Each March, CFUW Perth & District puts out a call to the guidance departments of all the secondary schools in the area, and all the youth organizations, for applications for our award competition. A set deadline exists, and once all applications are in, they are summarized and reviewed. The main focus of the evaluation is women in financial need going on to post-secondary education, though completeness of the application is also taken into consideration. This year, 32 candidates were appraised. The money for these awards comes primarily from our club's major fundraising event, The Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour. Each year, eight homeowners graciously allow their homes to be opened to the public on the first weekend in December. These unique residences are decked out in all their holiday finery by the homeowners and local decorators and florists. Community restaurants and businesses sponsor homes, purchase advertising or provide gift certificates to the cause. Well over 200 people donate their time and skills each year to make the house tour such a financial success. Those of you who have attended the house tour each year since its inception have visited almost 100 homes. Over the past dozen years, CFUW Perth & District has provided over $200,000 in awards to local women, and donations to local libraries and youth services such as YAK and Big Brothers Big Sisters. Planning is already underway for the 2018 CFUW Christmas House Tour slated for Dec. 1 and 2, so mark your calendars now. – submitted by CFUW Perth & District

Overall, Needham said he believes this new initiative will be a great success and hopefully will show the need to financially support a second RN on staff. "This is leveraging the successes that we already enjoy in Lanark County with the success of all of our service partners and we're advancing it that much further to try and reach people who are at risk. “It's shifting our focus to reacting to a call to being proactive, which is a big step in terms of not only making us more efficient but making Lanark County a more health community overall," Needham stressed. "The last thing we want to do is criminalize mental health."

PROVINCIAL ELECTION

Hillier returning to Queen's Park as part of PC majority TARA GESNER tgesner@metroland.com Blue pride engulfed supporters as Progressive Conservative Randy Hillier celebrated his fourth provincial election victory. Hillier was returned as MPP in his home riding of Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston Thursday night, June 7, with 52 per cent of the vote. He beat out NDP candidate Ramsey Hart, who won 30.5 per cent of the vote, and Liberal and Green contenders Amanda Pulker-Mok and Anita Payne, who won 10.5 per cent and 4.8 per cent respectively. Other nominees were John McEwen (Independent) and Steve Gebhardt (Libertarian). The re-elected MPP will join a Progressive Conservative majority at Queen's Park, led by Premier Doug

Ford. Most major news outlets called the election minutes after polls closed, and the PC majority less than half an hour later. After Hillier's victory was declared, he said it was "absolutely long overdue ... for Ontario to get back on track. Back to a government we can have respect in. An accountable and honest government. A government that will work for rural and small town Ontario. This is great news for Carleton Place, great news for Lanark County, great news for Frontenac County ... and everybody in Ontario." Hillier thanked his campaign volunteers and praised the other candidates for running their respective campaigns. "I can't find the words to adequately describe the pride and appreciation I

feel being elected for the fourth time in this area," Hillier continued. "[The support from my constituents] gives me strength down at Queen's Park to do the things I do." He said he's looking forward to the next four years, noting "it will feel a bit odd going to the other side of the aisle." In 2007, Hillier sought and won the Progressive Conservative nomination in the riding of LanarkFrontenac-Lennox and Addington. During the election that year, he won one of three new seats for the party. Hillier was reelected in 2011 and 2014. The riding of LanarkFrontenac-Kingston includes all of Lanark Country, including Perth and Smiths Falls, the entirety of Frontenac County and the portion of the City of

Kingston north of Highway 401. New Democratic Party sees rise in support in Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston Though first-time candidate for the Ontario New Democratic Party, Ramsey Hart, didn't get a seat in the provincial legislature, he did help bring out NDP support in a largely Conservative riding to new heights. And, when it came to game time, it was largely a fight between orange and blue in Ontario - something that has not happened in recent memory. "Something is changing," said Hart of his campaign, which was waged against an established incumbent. "We have a lot to be proud of. This was the strongest result for the NDP in this riding in a long time." Hart won about 10 per cent more of the vote for the NDP than in the previous election, and brought the NDP up from third place to second place in the riding. Hart remarked that "it

Lanark County council supports EORN in principle for broadband/cell project Following a presentation by Lisa Severson and Mike Rutter of the Eastern Ontario Regional Network earlier this month, Lanark County council passed a motion to support, in principle, the Eastern Ontario Regional Network's mobile broadband/cell project for between $574,000 and $802,000 for consideration during 2019 budget deliberations. Building on a previous project that saw broadband services greatly expanded across eastern Ontario, this next phase is a public/ private partnership that aims to grow the region's economy and create jobs, improve public safety and health-care delivery, support the provincial push toward 5G and the new digi-

tal economy, and provide an additional option to connect to the internet. It plans to do this by extending mobile broadband services to eastern Ontario through improved existing cellular networks and closing coverage and capacity gaps. The project aims to reduce the coverage gap to less than one per cent and to increase data capacity. Partners in the project include the Eastern Ontario Wardens' Caucus, the Eastern Ontario Mayors' Caucus, the provincial and federal governments, and mobile carriers. The province is contributing $71 million to the project, and the Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN) is awaiting confirmation of a commitment

from the federal government. Depending on the amounts contributed by other municipal partners, Lanark County's contribution would be between $574,000 and $802,000. To meet internet bandwidth and speed targets set by the CRTC, EORN has been authorized to do a technical and financial analysis on a county-bycounty basis. Lanark's portion would be $40,000, which was approved by council for 2018. Requests for proposals, as well as awards and construction, are expected to take place over the next two years. For more information, contact Kurt Greaves, chief administrative officer, at 1888-9-LANARK, ext. 1101.

ABOUT US

Have a healthy, happy Father's Day Sunday marks Father's Day, and what better way to celebrate than with healthy males in your life. Canadian Men's Health Week is a nationally recognized week dedicated to improving the health of men in our country. From June 11 to 17, the week serves as an opportunity to raise awareness of men's health issues and provide tips and tools for men and their families to live healthier lives. New Canadian research, conducted on behalf of the Canadian Men's Health Foundation, finds 72 per cent of men regularly demonstrate two or more unhealthy habits, including a poor diet, smoking cigarettes, problem drinking, not exercising or not getting regular sleep. The study is the first in this country to look at health behaviours rather than diseases, and the first to simultaneously look at five key health behaviours that help prevent chronic disease (diet, sleep, exercise, smoking and drinking). • 62 per cent of Canadian men have an unhealthy diet; • 54 per cent of Canadian men under or over sleep; • 59 per cent of Canadian men do not get 150 minutes of moderate-to-strenuous exercise per week; • 39 per cent of Canadian men have unhealthy alcohol consumption; and • 20 per cent of Canadian men smoke cigarettes. Only six per cent of respondents exhibited no unhealthy behaviours and were classified as 'very healthy.' Those who exhibited one bad habit were deemed healthy (22 per cent). Men with two unhealthy behaviours were considered borderline (31 per cent) and those with three or more of the above behaviours were classified as unhealthy (42 per cent). Wayne Hartrick, president of the CMHF, points out that it doesn't take much for a man to go from the "unhealthy" category to the "healthy" category. "Think of these categories as a ladder. Most Canadian men can move up a rung by changing only one bad habit.

Turtles need a 'brake' Dear Editor, We live on Elm Grove Road and we have notice an increase in turtle activity. On Friday, my husband and I saw two turtles on a stretch of Elm Grove simultaneously. He dashed out one side of the truck, and I the other. He tripped and twisted his ankle, but saved the turtle. To date, we have saved five turtles; four were in good condition, but one was hit by a car. We watched several vehicles pass by the injured turtle while it lay helpless. We stopped, picked up his broken body and brought him to a vet where a pick-up was organized to bring the little guy to Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre (Napanee)

During this season we see several tourists in the area who are not paying attention to turtle crossings. We are facing a loss of species because of this inaction by humans. All lives matter. By being silent we are equally part of a problem. Please contact your vet to find out where you can take an injured turtle. In the meantime, slow down. If you see one on the roadway, brake for it, and with your safety first, help it across in the same direction he/she was going.

Funding partners and more than 60 guests gathered to celebrate the opening of the newly refreshed and rehabilitated Baxter Pond May 24. Located at the Baxter Conservation Area in Kars, the Baxter ASL Pond is visited annually by more than 5,000 students from kindergarten to university looking to learn about pond ecology. It is home to frogs, fish, turtles, birds and aquatic invertebrates and visited by children who get to observe the diversity of life hiding along its shores and in its cool waters. It is here where students learn about freshwater pond habitat and how animals adapt to life under water. Equipped with nets, basins and sporting good old-fashioned rubber boots, students get up close and personal with the animals that call the pond home. Although still teeming with life, the pond wasn't as healthy and resilient as it could be. Dry summers were taking a toll on the shallow pond. It was time to gently deepen its bed, thin-out excessive vegetation, add wood materials as habitat, plant shoreline shrubs and install new platforms for future outdoor learning. And thanks

to several communityminded partners, the pond was able to get the TLC it well deserved. The project was jumpstarted with an in-kind donation by ASL Agrodrain Earth Works Contractors. From here, additional funders were quick to jump onboard and the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority's (RVCA) rehabilitation plan was put in motion. "The pond is a remarkable, vibrant area - and these restoration efforts will only make it better," said Jennifer Lamoureux, RVCA biologist who oversaw the project. "Last summer was quite wet, this meant that the pond habitat was really robust and meant that over 4,000 fish, frogs, tadpoles and turtles were relocated by RVCA staff last fall before the restoration project began. This included six largemouth bass and a brown bullhead with eight yearlings. We are confident that deepening the pond will only improve its biodiversity and ensure it continues as a special spot for children to explore and learn." The newly restored pond now boasts a variety of side slopes that allow for more diverse plant growth

and also provide safe learning areas for keen kids. Wood material, in and out of the water, now acts as homes for fish, frogs and turtles while freshly planted native trees and shrubs will add to the pond's shoreline vegetation. In the meantime, educations programs are fully booked over the next few months to the end of the school year. "We are excited to welcome children back to the pond," said Andrea Wood, RVCA area supervisor and interpreter. "Our programs are interactive and provide students with a hands-on approach to learning and the Baxter ASL Pond is an important part of the experience." Special thanks to the funders who made the restoration project possible: ASL Agrodrain, the Canadian Armed Forces Fish and Game Club, Canon Canada, City of Ottawa, Don Maciver Memorial Fund, Kiwanis Club of Manotick, Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters Zone F, TD Friends of the Environment, along with Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation. – submitted by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority

RVCA plants 275,000 trees this spring tablishment. "Our program is focused on increasing forest cover throughout our watershed. So much of the land is privately owned so we work with local landowners to provide them with easy and affordable tree planting services," said Scott Danford, RVCA forestry manager. Typical costs for the full-service tree-planting program are $0.15/tree ($120/acre). The RVCA and its planting partners cover all additional costs. "We have numerous community-minded partners who support our tree planting program and help reduce the costs for landowners," said Danford. – submitted by the RVCA

At 126 years old, 'Charley's Aunt' is still a spry old lady In a program note, the director (and script adapter) of BarnDoor Productions' Charley's Aunt notes that Brandon Thomas' original script is 115 pages long and runs over three hours plus two intermissions. That's all well for 1892, but modern audiences tend to want something a little snappier for their entertainment. The new adaptation that BarnDoor has brought to the stage runs under half of that - with just one intermission. That's a major chunk of a classic script to remove. So, does it work? If early audience reaction is any guide, it works in spades. The laughs start early and continue through to the end. The show is fast-paced and full of surprises. When you consider that Charley's

Aunt is 126 years old, the old lady is still plenty spry. The plot is very simple: a couple of Victorian Oxford students want to invite their girls over for tea in order to propose. Of course, without a chaperone, the girls could never come, but, luckily, a widowed aunt is coming to visit - the perfect excuse! However, when the aunt can't come after all, a school chum is unwillingly recruited to fill in for her and the plot is off and running. Think of the sweet old granny in the Sylvester and Tweety Bird cartoons and you've hit Charley's Aunt exactly. From pre-show music of light Victorian melodies to a set that is built around an enticing number of slam-able doors, it's a promise of a summer evening of fun entertain-

ment, and BarnDoor Productions' company of ten community players doesn't disappoint. David Bird is the slightly swaggering old soldier, Sir Francis, who is swept up in the shenanigans and finds romance with Shiraz Ings (her first role for BDP in more than a decade). The pair sport authentic British accents which help place the locale of the play. Greg Morris gives his best BDP performance Spettigue, a cranky old uncle, running in and out the doors with abandon. Jerry Logan, in his first BDP appearance, gets lots of laughs as Brassett, the required sarcastic butler, sometimes just from standing still and watching. A trio of young women all making their BarnDoor debuts get caught in the whirl as well. Kaija

Evangelho is Ela, an orphaned young lady who finds true love, Abigail Gagnon is Kitty, who is determined she's going to find true love if it kills someone, and Grace Poltrack is Amy, whose eagerness for true love is tempered by just a hint of a temper. That leaves a trio of young men to go with the young ladies. Josh Burley makes his stage debut in the role of Jack, in whose rooms the play takes place. Burley is tall and handsome and plays Jack with a slightly bewildered air that keeps Jack catching up to the hurricane around him. Slade Stoodley is Charley, he whose aunt is coming to visit and he keeps the action, both physical and verbal, coming at breakneck page. Finally, there's Tyler

Street, a young man who has become a staple on BarnDoor's stage. Tyler is the young Lord Fancourt Babberly, who is everything his name implies, but a lot more as well. Shanghaied into being Charley's aunt, Street attacks the role with gusto, skirts and petticoats flying as he hurls himself in and out the many doors of the set, as well as flipping vocally from young man to old lady on the instant. Among many other moments, his reactions to receiving not one but two proposals of marriage get big laughs. Charley's Aunt is believed to have never been off the stage since its debut in 1892 - someone, somewhere, has been performing it every day since then. In its original form, though, it's starting to show its age. BarnDoor

Productions hopes their new adaptation will bring this classic "chestnut" back for another 126 years. The run of the show has been extended by a week, with performances Thursday through Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m. through June 24. Tickets are just $20 reserved. Reserving tickets is simplicity itself: just put a phone to your ear, call 613 267 1884 and say "I'd like to reserve some tickets for Charley's Aunt". No credit cards needed; cash at the performance is requested. All performances at Full Circle Theatre, 26 Craig Street, Perth, near Last Duel Park. Come out and meet Charley's aunt - and Charley's Aunt. You'll have fun doing both! – submitted by BarnDoor Productions

Golf Fun Day, lobster dinner to support Canadian Guide Dogs A nine and dine Golf Fun Day and lobster dinner will take place on Sunday, June 24, at the Canadian Golf & Country Club, 7800 Golf Club Way, Ashton. Proceeds will support Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. The day features nine holes of golf with cart, plus a scrumptious, full lobster dinner to follow (chicken and vegetarian options, too). Shotgun start is 2 p.m., with dinner at 5:30 p.m., and plenty of prizes, including the chance to win $10,000 cash on a par-3 hole-in-one and to participate in the $5,000 putting competition. This is meant as a fun day of golf. Experienced players

are certainly welcome; however, new or occasional golfers are encouraged to join in the fun, with no pressure! Cost is $105 per player. Sign up to play today, or get more information, at www.guidedogs.ca or phone 613-692-7777. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind was established as a registered charity in 1984. The organization has provided more than 840 professionally trained guide dogs to Canadians who are visually impaired, from coast to coast. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind also operates an Assistance Dogs Division, which trains assistance dogs for individuals in the Ottawa area

The Leisure Seeker is Studio Theatre's movie for June, and it's a pure pleasure for anyone who appreciates great acting. The film stars Oscar winner Helen Mirren and Canadian acting legend Donald Sutherland as a couple of aging adventurers off on one boisterous, bittersweet final road trip together. Ella (Mirren) is dying of cancer, and John (Sutherland) is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Neither is interested in quietly fading away surrounded by nurses and machines, needlessly prolonging a winnowing life. With the end of the road in sight, Ella opts to tune up their vintage RV and hit the highway, travelling from Boston to Florida with John behind the wheel. He may not always be cognizant of the nature of their trip - she assures him it's just a vacation but he gets into the spirit. As they pass through cities and towns, they see how much the world they knew has changed, and they're determined to leave it on a graceful note. Despite the sombre rationale behind Ella and John's journey, The Leisure Seeker brims with humour, affection, observation, and more than a little satire. It's a wise and witty road movie, and an acting tour de force featuring two of today's most cherished actors. The Leisure Seeker plays for one showing only at the Studio Theatre on Friday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m. NOTE: Coarse language; ages 16+. Movies at the Studio Theatre are shown on a large nine-by-16-foot screen, with comfortable seats, great sound, and popcorn too! Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for children under 12 at the door and in advance at Tickets Please, where a $2 fee applies. Watch this space for upcoming adult and children's features, and visit studiotheatreperth.com for updates. We hope you'll join your friends and neighbours for a great evening at the movies! – submitted by Paul Joyce for the Studio Theatre

More than 30 new classes will be visiting the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority's two flagship outdoor education centres, thanks to special funding through the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation, the Ottawa Community Foundation and TD Friends of the Environment. Subsidies are now available to cover busing costs for schools visiting Baxter and Foley Mountain. Separate subsides are also available to priority schools visiting Baxter who need assistance covering program and busing costs. Baxter Conservation Area, located in the City of Ottawa near Kars and Foley Mountain Con-

servation Area in Westport, will welcome some 1,800 additional students during the 2018-19 school year, thanks to this funding. Owned and operated by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) these two popular outdoor destinations offer education programming year-round to nursery schools, daycares, homeschooling groups, public and private schools, and community groups. Each year, over 10,000 children participate in these interactive, curriculum-based programs. "Our outdoor programs are carefully crafted, innovative and reflect the Ontario curriculum," said Andrea Wood, Baxter Con-

servation Area supervisor and interpreter. "We are so excited to offer this special funding - we want everyone to access our programs because the best way to learn about nature is to experience it." Programs can be a half-day or a full-day and look to provide students with a strong understanding of our natural world, how it functions and how humans fit into it. Topics include beaver pond ecology, forest habitats, orienteering and snowshoeing. All programs are interactive and experiential, to provide students with a "hands-on" approach to learning about natural science in our "Ecology Lab."

"We are constantly looking for ways to make our programming more accessible," said Rebecca Whitman, Foley Mountain Conservation Area supervisor and interpreter. "We look to remove barriers - through accessible trails, low program cost and now special subsidies." Teachers who are interested in this opportunity are invited to

contact Baxter and Foley Mountain Conservation Areas directly. "We are looking to foster a lifelong relationship between children and the natural world," said Whitman. "Learning outdoors is a wonderful adventure, and we believe children learn best by doing." – submitted by Rideau Valley Conservation Authority

Discover modern hosta plants The next meeting of the Smiths Falls Horticultural Society (SFHS) is at the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95 at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 19. Everyone is welcome. There is a cost of $3 for nonmembers. Hostas are a huge favourite of gardeners. There is an endless variety of shapes, colours and sizes. This month we present Suzanne Patry owner of Whitehouse Perennials near Almonte. In business for more than 30 years, the centre now grows and sells more than just perennials. Suzanne will be telling us about "modern" hostas that are now available. Come out and learn about these new varieties and bring any questions you may have. Winners of the May photo contest will be posted at a later date.

The topic for June is A Picture of a Dragonfly on a Flower. The next contest is in September where the photo is that of a sunflower. The sunflower was adopted as the official flower of our local society. The winning photo will be featured on the cover of the 2019 Yearbook. Remember you can send your entry with a friend if you are unable to attend. June is our first official flower show meaning that it is a judged event. Division 1 includes various flowers as well as vegetables. The classes are listed on page 11 of the yearbook and all are common to most gardens so bring in your best to display. We had a very successful plant sale this year with plenty of plants available. Our Garden of the Month win-

18 OPINION

How to protect your trees from the eastern tent caterpillar Dale Odorizzi writes about Eastern tent caterpillars As you walk around your yard and look at the beautiful buds on your apple and cherry trees, you notice what looks like a tent made from cobwebs. Guess what? You have a nest of eastern tent caterpillars. And, if you have one nest, you likely have many. Eastern tent caterpillars feed on deciduous trees such as apple, birch, willow and wild cherry. A large infestation can strip most of the leaves from your trees. The tents form

in the forks and crotches of the tree's branches. It provides protection for the caterpillars that live inside. A fully grown tent caterpillar can grow six centimetres long, is hairy, and black with a cream-coloured stripe down its back. It may also have blue spots and brown and yellow stripes along the side of its body. The life cycle of this little beast is egg, larva, pupa and adult. In June or July, the female adult, a reddishbrown moth, lays her eggs on a branch. The eggs are laid in masses of up to 300 eggs, held together by a foam-like substance. The following spring, when the leaves appear, the eggs hatch into the larva stage (caterpillar). This is the

stage of life that causes all the damage. The caterpillars feed for five to seven weeks, until they mature. In early July, the caterpillar spins a cocoon and pupates for two weeks. After emerging, the moths mate, and eggs are laid within 24 hours. If you have the types of trees they like, you have various opportunities to monitor and control them. Check for egg masses in the fall and early spring. Scrape off the masses using your thumbnail or a knife, and put them into a bucket then put them in the garbage. Look for small, silk-like tents late in the spring and remove them, to prevent the moths from breeding.

When the caterpillars are active, go out at night when they are back in their tent and prune off small branches and destroy the tents. You can also cut the tent open and use your fingers to squish all the caterpillars inside. Squeamish people use gloves. Put them in a bucket of soapy water. Spraying your trees with dormant oil spray may prevent the caterpillars from being active, but read the instructions carefully, or you may cause more damage to your trees than you prevent. At our last Master Gardener meeting, we were talking about these caterpillars, and we reminisced about tools we have used in the past. Someone used one

of the flame-thrower tools you can buy online. Another person told about the old days when she was a kid and they wrapped cloth around a broom handle, dipped it gasoline and burned them off. Another told of an irate neighbour who said it was not neighbourly to leave the crabapple tree with all those tents. The neighbour lent her a tall stepladder and a blowtorch, and she spent a couple of satisfying hours frying the little fellows. We all agreed these were not the preferred approaches:although they did the job, it would be very easy to damage your tree. Healthy trees rarely have any lasting damage from the invasion of tent

caterpillars. Make sure your trees are well watered. With tall, mature trees it is difficult to implement any control, but they usually have sufficient leaves to survive. If you like nature - and you usually do if you are a gardener - keep in mind that birds enjoy a nice feast of caterpillars. Many are hatching their young when the caterpillars hatch. In fact, both black-billed and yellow-billed cuckoos are around in greater numbers when there is a caterpillar infestation. – Dale Odorizzi is a member of the Lanark County Master Gardeners.

OPINION

Despite lessons, Father never trusted the bank, Mary Cook writes The whole idea to Father was just a shade offcentre. He had never heard of children being encouraged to put money in a bank. Didn't everyone know there was a Depression on? Where were these pennies to come from? The issue was the penny bank deposits, a system where each of us was encouraged to bring a penny to school in the hope of teaching us about thrift and promoting a desire to

MARY COOK Column save. Of course, Miss Crosby hadn't counted on people like Father, who grew up believing that money put in a bank was gone forever! We came home from school that day, early in the year, clutching little oblong boxes with printing on one side that said, A Penny Saved, Is a Penny Earned. We had to take the boxes

back to school the next day, after our parents looked them over and decided Miss Crosby wasn't collecting money for her own benefit. But she had explained it all to us in great length. We were to put coins in as often as we could, each of us keeping track in our own little books, and once a week the boxes were to be emptied, and the money taken into Renfrew and deposited into something called a bank account, which would be in our very own name. We were very excited when we explained it all to Father and Mother that night, and we were sure it would just be a matter of time until we were all millionaires. But as soon as we

mentioned the word "bank," the trouble began. As far as Father was concerned, the bank was just about the most unsafe place in the entire world to put money. "It's all mixed up in there with everyone else's, and besides, who is to say the bank won't go broke, too? And then where would your money be?" Mother kept saying, "Now, Albert, I'm sure the banks are honest, and so is Miss Crosby." She told him we wouldn't have much to put in there, anyway, and so we each had a penny in our little cardboard box when we went back to school the next day, with Father convinced it was the last we would see of our money.

Miss Crosby had lined up all the little boxes on the windowsill opposite of her desk. Ever since that day, we trucked up to our own little box and put a penny inside each week - or more if Mother could find any extra in her egg-money sugar bowl. And each time, we made an entry in our little book and tucked it back in the drawer under our desk. That first Friday, just before the day ended, the boxes were gathered up, the flaps were opened, and much to our horror the contents of every box were mixed together on top of Miss Crosby's desk. Emerson was the first to react: "I knew it, Father was right." Miss Crosby did some fast figuring, and then

dumped the entire pile of money into a brown paper bag, and we just knew it was gone forever! We went home, dragging our feet, scared to tell Father what had happened and to admit that, unless some genius could figure out who had what, we'd never see our money again. Well, on Monday, the penny boxes were back on the window sill at the Northcote School, and on each desk was our own little book. We gingerly opened them, and were stunned to see that the amount matched the figure we had been writing when we made our penny deposits! We brought a few more

PEC ideal summer destination for families

Jeff Maguire writes about some hot spots to visit this summer This week many children and teens are counting the days until the end of the school year and with summer now only days away Dad and Mom are counting the dollars to see how far their budget will carry them this vacation season. Day tripping is growing in popularity, especially for families with young children, mortgages and car payments. And today that encompasses a lot of people! In Eastern Ontario, Ottawa is not only the nation's

JEFF MAGUIRE Column capital it is also one of the country's largest cities. There is so much to see and do. The same is true of surrounding communities including Kemptville, Smiths Falls, Carleton Place, Mississippi Mills and Perth as well as Seaway centres such as Prescott, Brockville and Gananoque. However, an area my wife and I have fallen in love with and highly recommend is Prince Edward

County (PEC) on Lake Ontario. Well, when you look at a map it is more like "in Lake Ontario." The vast Bay of Quinte separates the county from Ontario proper. Bridges quickly connect PEC to places like Belleville, Deseronto and Napanee. Access is mainly via Highway 401 or Hwy. 2. If you are travelling at a more leisurely pace wind your way from Kingston via the Loyalist Parkway (Hwy. 33), hugging the north shore of the picturesque and expansive lake. Then take the Glenora Ferry across the narrow channel that connects Lake Ontario and Picton Bay. From Glenora it is less than 10 minutes into the quaint, pretty town of Picton which, with 3,000 permanent residents, is the

largest community in PEC. I recently wrote a column about watching the spring bird tagging process at Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory, half an hour south of Picton, last month. Last year I wrote about the growing wine trail in PEC. But wine is only part of the picture in this beautiful part of the province. Picton, along with PEC villages such as Bloomfield and Wellington, would be called "Rockwellesque" (a reference to the artwork of Norman Rockwell) if they were located south of the border. I will call them "pure Canadiana." Their bustling main streets look like they fell off postcards. With such a strong United Empire Loyalist history PEC features five excellent museums. The local tourist

guide says, "Think of each museum as a chapter in the fascinating history of the county." For beer and wine lovers PEC has become a magnet. The lakeside microclimate is ideal for growing grapes and the 2018-2019 'Wine Country Ontario' travel guide now lists an amazing 17 separate wineries. There are also nearly a dozen craft breweries operating in the county. With such an extensive wine and beer trail it is only natural that many talented chefs have opened restaurants in PEC. They feature excellent food with an emphasis on the region's plentiful agricultural produce, wine and beer. Festivals, events, good food and drink and sandy beaches, such as those

As I noted at the outset there are outstanding travel options available across Eastern Ontario. There are so many things to do in our region and something to fit every budget.

Talk about things that just continue to go on and on. Charles Thomas "Stompin' Tom" Connors and his connection to the Ottawa Valley is one of those things. This story never seems to tire or wear out. A new biography about the life of the late national troubadour will be released this fall and the one true "Mr. Canada" is sure to dominate the media again from coast to coast to coast. This is fitting too because who in this country would deserve the title of "Mr. Canada" more than him? All through the '50s and '60s, Tom toured the land working at almost every job imaginable (in just about every place, too) then told the tale so simply and beautifully through words and songs. And one of those places he visited and impacted greatly was Carleton Place. Though it's true he visited several places throughout the valley over time, Carleton Place remains the primary stop in 1967 where "it all began" one could say. The new biography will feature the Carleton Place connection and the deep impact that it has had on the community (Please Google Lyle Dillabough Stompin' Tom's Carleton Place Connection or search Stompin' Tom & Carleton Place on youtube.com for more details). The book is being written by Maritime writer, Charles Rhindress. He is known and highly praised for being the playwright who penned a beautiful production based on the life of the late Rita McNeil. Rhindress actually wrote parts of the play along with McNeil, who he describes as, "the most wonderful human being I have ever met." When one truly learns of her incredible struggles in life and how she overcame them all, the heartache, determination and love this woman possessed, will leave you speechless. So let's hope that Rhindress can do the same with Stompin' Tom. Many now know that myself and Stompin' Tom used to exchange letters periodically over the years. As stated before, he was a beautiful writer who pre-

ment of the new Pope at the time) many have requested to see those letters but I would never betray his confidence. OK, just once. The following quote is one he would not have minded me sharing, I'm sure. "I have no one to help me with all the fan mail, my barn is falling down, my wife tells me that in over 30 years of marriage I've yet to take her on a decent vacation, then there's the songwriting, recording and ..." It just goes to show that no matter how famous you are, life continues to happen. Rhindress interviewed me last week and we have agreed to stay in touch.

That test came when school was just about to close for the summer. We were all taught how to write a cheque to the Red Cross for 10 cents each, and sure

enough, with only a few days left, the bank showed we had taken out 10 cents. None of us ever had more than $1 in the bank all the time we went to the Northcote School, but the penny boxes were enough to convince us that, indeed, a penny saved was a penny earned.

Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, if your energy levels are waning, find a way to put some hop in your step. Take a break from work if necessary. This is a great way to recharge.

SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, if you are feeling high strung or nervous, you may just need to take a little time away from a situation to reorient yourself. Come back with a fresh perspective.

TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, your imagination is very active lately, so much so that it may make it difficult to concentrate on anything else. Make an effort to get work done in spite of the distractions.

VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you haven’t yet found your groove at work, but don’t get discouraged because it will happen. Pay attention to others around you and how they act.

CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, don’t put others off by being too serious. Learn how to let loose a little bit this week and your friends will flock to you in no time at all.

GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, others may misinterpret your enthusiasm for a carefree nature. However, you are actually busy getting the job done — even if you’re having some fun doing it.

LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 Even if others think you are ambivalent, you possess a clear picture of what you want and where you are heading, Libra. Don’t let others’ misconceptions sway you.

CANCER – Jun 22/Jul 22 It’s possible you may misread someone’s intentions, and it could get you in a bit of hot water, Cancer. Don’t make any assumptions and apologize if you make mistakes.

SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, if left to your own devices, you can get your work done quickly. But overcoming distractions may be difficult in the days ahead. Do your best to stay the course.

"That's one of my key elements ... growing together." Dickson said they don't want to be just another organization that raises money and hands over

the funds. "We love the fact that we have athletes who come out and run with us," he said. "We love going to the games and helping present medals, and we love just hanging out with the athletes because it's not just about raising money. It's about bonding with the athletes,

Queen's medical students give prospective doctors a prescription for rural medicine

DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com Student doctors, the countryside is calling. Two student doctors from Queen's University in Kingston gave students in a St. John Catholic High School biology class a lesson in what it takes to become a doctor - and where those skills are needed, once they are earned. "Where do you think we need the most doctors in Canada? (Where is) the biggest deficit?" asked Danielle Weber-Adrian, who, along with her classmate Mike Christie, spoke at the Perth high school on Tuesday, June 5. "Toronto is not really hurting for doctors," she said. "(It's) areas like here." Weber-Adrian and Christie are seeing for themselves the positives of rural medicine - not just on

rural communities, but in their own professional lives, too. That is why Weber-Adrian is doing a placement in Westport at the Country Roads Community Health Centre, and Christie is at the North Lanark Community Health Centre. But would either of them come to Lanark County permanently as doctors? "Home is Alberta for me," said Christie. But then, he has only been in Lanark for a "dayand-a-half," and "I feel so welcomed by the community," and he said it was "gratifying," to feel that, working on everything from helping sick babies to removing a thorn from a patient's foot during his first week. "It's a consideration," he added. "Rural medicine is so diverse. You will never

tle in a rural area. If any of the students assembled in front of them were interested in pursuing medicine, the duo said

that "the hope (is) that you would reinvest in your community," said WeberAdrian. Serving in a rural area, "you're never bored,"

said Weber-Adrian with a laugh. "You can work on 100 things in a day," which underlines the need for "creative, out-of-the-box thinking," which she finds to be "extremely fulfilling." Road to med school While the two agreed on where students should end up - geographically anyway - how to get there academically is another matter, as they both took very different routes to get to medical school, and beyond. Alberta native Christie stressed students needed to "obviously finish high school," but that their university undergraduate years can see "tremendous diversity." His roommate, for example, studied opera. Other classmates came from the fields of paramedicine, neuroscience, nursl See STUDENTS, page 11

DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com First-term Coun. Riq Turner is considering a run for mayor. "I'm considering it," he said during an exclusive interview with The Perth Courier after town council's committee of the whole meeting. "I'm giving it a lot of consideration." With Deputy Mayor John Gemmell and fellow Coun. Jim Boldt having already filed on the same day - May 15 - to run for mayor it is proving to be a crowded race for the top job already. (Councillors Ed McPherson and Jim Graff will now be running for the Deputy Mayor's chair. Coun. Judy Brown has also filed to run for re-election to her council seat.) Having been first elected in the October 2014 municipal elections as the only new member of council, Turner is not only a real estate agent, but a former mem-

ber of the local country rock band Ambush, before striking out artistically on his own. "I have worked on some platform issues that I think are important," he said, speaking on the sidewalk on Gore Street East. "It's tough with the (provincial) election coming up Thursday." He promised that he would make a final decision by next week at the latest. "I think I have a lot of good ideas," he said. He said he wanted to see "a return to classic values," but when asked to define what these 'classic values' were, he smiled and said, "You'll see." He promised that, if elected in October, "music will probably disappear," from his already busy plate, what with a young family at home, on top of his political and professional obligations. "I will take that (music) time (and) commit it to the town, because I love this town."

NDP wins election - at high school Student Vote '18 DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com New Democrat Ramsey Hart is Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston's new MPP - or at least, he would be if it were only Perth high school students voting. Students at both Perth and District Collegiate Institute (PDCI) and St. John Catholic High School voted in the Student Vote mock election on Tuesday, June 5, less than 48 hours before Ontario residents aged 18 and older (who are Canadian citizens) began voting in the 2018 Ontario provincial election. In the vote at St. John, the NDP's Ramsey Hart beat incumbent Progressive Conservative Randy Hillier 32 votes to 23. In a surprise surge, Green Party candidate Anita Payne collected 15 votes, eight ahead of Liberal candidate Amanda Pulker-Mok who was in fourth place. It was a two-way tie for fifth place, between Libertarian Steve Gebhardt and independent John A. McEwen, with three votes each.

Desmond Devoy/Metroland

St. John Catholic High School student Charlotte McFarland makes her decision on her ballot behind the screen at the 2018 Student Vote centre in Perth on Tuesday, June 5.

There were 83 accepted votes, and four rejected ballots. There were no declined or unmarked ballots. Across town, Hart also carried the day at PDCI, beating Hillier by

an even wider margin of 44 votes, 193 votes to 149 respectively. Like at St. John, Payne was also in third place at the public school, with 47 votes. Pulker-Mok was again in fourth place with 40 votes, while Gebhardt beat McEwan to fifth place by a single vote - 18 votes to 17 respectively. Civics lessons The PDCI elections were held by the school's two civics classes. Last week, students from the class went to all other classes, from Grades 7 to 12, giving details of each of the candidates running in the Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston riding, according to principal Kellie Weir-Burtt. The voting took place at PDCI during periods two and four, though Grade 7 and French immersion students voted early because of class trips planned for that day. (The vote at St. John was held on Tuesday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.) The results from both schools were counted and were added to the provincewide student-run election.

Perth council set to revisit issue of security cameras at Conlon Farm

DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

Desmond Devoy/Metroland

Coun. Jim Boldt holds up surveillance legislation he has been reviewing during a debate about revisiting the use of security cameras at Conlon Farm, during Perth town council's committee of the whole meeting on Tuesday, June 5. Coun. Judy Brown recalled that the OPP had advised town hall that all installing cameras would do would be to "demonstrate that they (an alleged vandal) were there," in the park, at the time an incident of

vandalism took place. "It would not hold up in a court of law," added Brown. "This ship has sailed," said Mayor John Fenik. Coun. Jim Graff said that any of the vandalism incidents that did take place in

"It's public property. I don't see this as an infringement on anyone's privacy." - Coun. Jim Graff staff bring forward reports, I do not consider their information to be in error," said Fenik. "I don't think errors are made ... Our staff do the best they can." However, Fenik did concede that "technologies change," and that it was possible that "there is new information, for sure." Boldt waded into the is-

sue, saying that "I don't know where Coun. Graff got his information. I'm sure it came from a reputable spot." Baillon confirmed that there is a small budget to deal with vandalism costs, of about $5,000, but that there were $6,800 worth of vandalism costs incurred by the town in 2017.

The security camera debate will be making a return visit to Perth town council later this month. While some councillors had thought the issue long since buried, as it was last discussed in 2016, enough votes, 4-2, were mustered to allow council to reconsider the matter of installing security cameras at Conlon Farm during its full council meeting on June 26. The vote took place at Perth town council's committee of the whole meeting on Tuesday, June 5, with the two-thirds majority having been met (Deputy Mayor John Gemmell was absent). "I'm not against looking at things we have already looked at," said Coun. Jim Boldt, in response to letters from Erin Borthwick and Michelle Fitzgerald, dated May 21 and May 28 respectively, to council, asking that surveillance cameras be place in the public park. But he did wonder if this was not an issue better suited to be handled by the new, incoming council, which will be elected this October, and sworn in this December. "There is a time and a place for cameras," said Boldt (there are cameras at the Perth Museum and the town landfill). But he had reviewed various acts which cover matters like surveillance cameras, such as "the Privacy Act which controls the use of surveillance," and, in order for a camera to be installed on public property, "there has to be a demonstrated urgency," he said. In the meantime, "this is something for the next council to look at if they wish." Looking back to 2016 when the matter was last before council, Boldt reminded council that community services director Shannon Baillon had noted that getting a sufficient number of cameras operational in Conlon Farm would cost about $20,000.

Conlon Farm recently were not "really a chargeable offence," anyway. "To charge a kid, (and) go through the court system ... it really is a waste of money. Is this going to correct the problem?" he asked. However, Graff then pivoted, and claimed to have found new information, that he could find eight new surveillance cameras for a cost of less than $1,000 in total, and not the $20,000 quoted by Baillon in 2016, an amount he called "not factual." "It's public property," added Graff. "I don't see this as an infringement on anyone's privacy." Shortly afterwards, Fenik was quick to defend Baillon against Graff's suggestion that the $20,000 quoted in 2016 was not an accurate cost. "When our professional

and making sure that members of the public know what Special Olympics is all about." In Perth, the run has been going on at least 20 years, with Dickson being involved for the past 18. While running the route through Heritage Perth, Carleton Place and Merrickville, participants carry buckets to collect donations. "It depends on the day, the time of day and the weather," he said. "If we raise $200 or $300 in a community like Perth that's awesome. But I always tell our guys, every $5 we raise is $5 more than we had before. Every little bit helps. Spare change, $20s, $50s, it all adds up. At the end of the day it all goes to Special Olympics to support the athletes and their programs." Whether the participants get donations from cars driving by, or through the shopping mall, or down the main street, Dickson said they're not shy. "Our guys will run right into stores with a bucket," he said. Ending at Algonquin College in Perth in the morning, the route takes about a half-hour to complete. The Law Enforcement Torch Run has a connection with the college as the former detachment commander, Gerry Salisbury is now at the school, Dickson noted. And the Police Foundations program is their tie-in. "It's not all about police though," Dickson said. "We have partners who are campus security with universities in Ottawa, we

tie in with corrections and probation parole officers, special constables with OC Transpo ... we'll partner with just about anybody and we welcome them all." The next big event for the Special Olympics is the Winter Games in Sault St. Marie this winter. "We're looking forward to a final leg run up there," he said. "It will be cold, but it will be neat. There could be a local connection, I wouldn't be surprised." For Special Olympian Rob McLellan, he hasn't missed a torch run in a few years. He's also a ball player and a soccer player and has snowshoed as well. "My part in the Torch Run is just to run and hold the torch up in the end for the last leg of the run," he said. "The students from Algonquin College will be out cheering me on as I come in with the torch today. It's also to raise money which is a good cause and it's a good day for it." Andrew Harris is another Special Olympian who to run with the torch. "When it gets heavy, I just switch arms, back and forth," he said. "It's heavy." About the Torch Run The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the largest public awareness and grassroots fundraising organization for Special Olympics globally. The LETR hold a number of year-round fundraising and awareness events in communities across Canada. The LETR is supported by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP), and has been an active partner of Special Olympics Canada since 1981.

It is the most well-known event that the LETR hosts. The Torch Run is an event in which officers run the Flame of Hope into

an opening ceremony at local, regional and national competitions. Grown to include a wide range

of regional and national events, the LETR have raised more than $ 63 million in Canada, since its inception.

Flame of Hope makes its way through Perth

“This experience changed my life. Now it’s my duty to pay it forward.” Vania, Team Member from Burlington, ON Vania arrived in Canada from Cuba with little more than a few dollars in her pocket. Knowing only a bit of English, a trusting Manager recognized her work ethic and passion and gave Vania her first job at Tims. Grateful for this chance, she worked her way from the kitchen to the cash, and all the way up to General Manager. Now Vania looks to hire new Canadians at her restaurant, giving them the same life-changing opportunity she received 17 years ago. Thank you, Vania.

Spreading good vibes helps get through the list, writes Stephanie Gray Last Thursday I woke up feeling pretty grumpy. I still had a sinusy headache that had been kicking my right eye around like a soccer ball for a couple of days. I don't know about you, but lingering headaches make me feel groggy and yucky and my brain has to work harder than usual just to do simple tasks. Like staying awake. It doesn't help that since my ear troubles started, headaches can make me feel a tiny bit dizzy, too. Needless to say, productivity had been affected for a couple of days already, and I wasn't super happy to start yet another day with an energy-sapping headache.

STEPHANIE GRAY Column So, I took a deep breath and tackled my day by, of course, making a list. Sometimes (often) I need to set some priorities and include a few manageable tidbits (such as "make a list") to feel as if I am actually getting somewhere. One of the first things on the list was to vote. I considered writing a whole column about voting versus not voting or declining your ballot, but maybe I'll save that for another election. I went to my polling station just as the doors opened and I voted for a

person even though I don't agree with everything they stand for. What intrigued me more was that my polling location was one of the ones with the electronic ballot box thingy. You got a giant cardboard folder with a huge paper ballot inside. Once you marked your X, you slipped the paper back into the folder and the poll clerk fed it into the machine. The machine took the paper and indicated the ballot had been received. I have to admit I giggled and thought, "What could go wrong?" and then wrote imaginary headlines in my head about technological glitches wrecking the Ontario election. I guess I'm a bit cynical by times. And as I write this, the polls are still open, so I'm not sure if my imaginary headlines came true or not. Anyway, some of the clerks looked a little flus-

tered as they navigated the new process. I wished them luck. And I really meant it. It may have been a very long day for some of them. I made my way to work and continued to poke through my list. I even managed to navigate some formulae in an Excel spreadsheet, so there was some progress. Partway through the morning the sun came out to stay and a little breeze seemed to clear the air ... along with some of the cobwebs in my head. It is always such a grand feeling when a headache goes away! It kind of makes me

I think unexpected kindness is a little magical. I could feel her smile in her grateful response. The rest of the day wasn't without some hurdles that threatened to invite the headache back. So, I focused on some more positives. Here's one. Girlchild's gymnastics team is gearing up for its trip to Internationals in Phoenix, Ariz., again this summer and a

This year, with a lot of the unknowns now known, it's much less intimidating and way more exciting. It's hard to be cheerful with a brainache, but looking for positivity and throwing a little kindness around is good medicine. – Stephanie Gray is a Word Girl, project manager and college teacher who makes up words, has petulant body parts and obsesses about her patio. sjgray@bell.net.

The purpose of this amendment is to align the Township’s Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. 02-121 with the recently-adopted Official Plan by making several modifications to the Definitions, General Provisions and Zoning Schedules of the Zoning By-law. These changes are intended to implement revised Official Plan policies, update Environmental Protection (EP) and Floodplain (FP) mapping and to add or revise provisions including, but not limited to, Secondary Dwelling Units, Home-Based Businesses, Source Water Protection and Tiny Homes. The effect of the amendment would be to implement the policies of the Official Plan and to address various zoning matters that have been identified by the public and/or staff through experience in working with the Zoning Bylaw and through comments received during the Official Plan review process. ANY PERSON may attend the open house to review the draft Zoning By-law and maps, as well as to take the opportunity to ask questions and make comments on matters of interest with project representatives. SUBSEQUENT TO THE OPEN HOUSE the draft Zoning By-law document will be refined and finalized based upon input from various government agencies, the public and Council. Prior to the adoption of the Zoning By-law, Council will hold a Public Meeting. IF A PERSON OR PUBLIC BODY would otherwise have an ability to appeal the decision of the Council of Tay Valley Township to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal but the person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to Tay Valley Township before the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision. IF A PERSON OR PUBLIC BODY does not make oral submissions at a public meeting, or make written submissions to Tay Valley Township before the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so. THE SUBJECT LANDS, being the entirety of lands within the corporate limits of Tay Valley Township, are not the subject of any applications under the Planning Act that relate directly to the draft Comprehensive Zoning By-law update.

Students see positives of rural medicin l Continued from page 2

ing, firefighting, and even history, before turning to medical school. "Don't limit yourself," he said. "I took kinesiology because I thought it was cool." While Christie was lucky, Weber-Adrian urged students to "pick something you love." While marks were important, "I would care more about someone who really gave themselves for four years," said Christie, instead of "jumping around," from one volunteer opportunity to another. "I wanted to be a scientist," said Weber-Adrian. "Somewhere along the line, I decided I wanted to be a doctor." One of the experiences that shaped her decision came from looking at the science of Alzheimer's disease, when she wanted to discover "what proteins were not being expressed in the cells," of dementia patients, and "how do we put them (missing proteins) back." She also noticed the delirium that can happen in elderly patients in a hospital setting. An elderly patient who has, for example, broken a hip, after having been found on the floor of their home, after an unknown length of time, is brought into a hospital. That patient then faces a wait of 12 to 16 hours, and is likely dehydrated, hungry and disoriented.

"I walked into that situation as a neurobiologist," she said, looking at what could be done to stabilize the patient and alleviate their delirium, by working on an action plan. "This is what I want to do with the rest of my life," she realized. "(But) you don't have to decide right now," stressed Christie, to the students before them. Christie studied kinesiology at the University of Calgary, which he called "such an underrated undergraduate program. It doesn't get enough airtime." (He explained, to the uninitiated, that it is "the study of human movement. But it is so much more than that.") MCAT shadow Once undergraduate studies are completed, there comes the Herculean task of completing the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test). For Weber-Adrian, her view of marks was informed by personal experience. In the middle of university, she got very sick, and, as a result, "my marks tanked." Looking only at her grades, "I have no business being in medical school," she said. But, utilizing medical records to show how sick she was, and how, once she got better, she able to see her marks rebound, she was able to get admitted to medical school. "It's not a done deal if something happens on your GPA (Grade Point Average) in undergradu-

ate," said Weber-Adrian, if it is explained on your application. However, she said she understood that "there is a lot of undue pressure on people," at such times as the MCAT, and, for herself, "I tend to do worse on a test," when there is "end-ofthe-world" pressure. For any future doctors, Christie recommended an MCAT preparation course, and said he was glad that he was able to take "the summer off and I studied 30 to 35 hours a week. I'm the kind of guy who needs to study a lot." The reality was different for Weber-Adrian, as she had to "put bread on the table," so she worked during the day and studied at night. "You get used to it," she said of that lifestyle. While the MCAT is eight hours long, "it sounds scary, but it is doable," Weber-Adrian said. The test is not made up of anything that one would not have likely seen, and the test can be taken more than once. There are timed, practice tests that can be taken. "It's like running a marathon. You train," said Christie. The two left similar advice for the students as they wrapped up their presentation. "Be bold. Try different things," said Weber-Adrian. "Follow your passion," said Christie, though he admitted that "that sounds really cliché and cheesy."

Rideau Ferry preps for party to revitalize boat ramp at Yacht Club LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com It's a legend in the making - or perhaps it's one rising from the ashes, like the phoenix. Rideau Ferry is a place of lore and legend, and this summer, organizers of the Rock the Dock bash want to bring back the days of yore. Scott Cameron is a man on a mission. The local guy with ties to the yacht club, the Rideau waterway, a rock band, and the Township of Drummond North Elmsey, in which Rideau Ferry is just one of the touristy hamlets, said he wants to bring back the old days with this new-age bash on Saturday, June 30. It's an event where there will be free live entertainment by local bands - some of the best music in eastern Ontario - from noon to 7 p.m. Bands like Basic White, Totally Hip, The Ramblers, The Doherty Brothers and The Continentals will 'Rock the Dock' for the revitalization project to restore the boat ramp area at the Rideau Ferry Yacht Club. "It's a project we've been fundraising for, for about three years now," said Cameron as he took a lunch break on Friday, June 8, at CC's on the Rideau, the local family-owned restaurant where most of the action will be taking place during the afternoon. Food vendors, a beer tent, and a kids' zone will also be on site. Guests are encouraged to come early to get a good seat, and bring a lawn chair. There will be picnic tables available, too. "There is a huge demand for the ramp (at the yacht club) and it will take about $100,000 to im-

prove the ramp for public use. The abutment needs some work, too." Cameron said he's trying to secure a Trillium grant to help with funding. "The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) knows we are looking to further enhance the area along the Rideau Canal. With Le Boat now in Smiths Falls and the tourists coming through, we want to make it more enjoyable for people to visit, and enhance what we have for the community to use and for tourists to enjoy." This will be the third year for Rock the Dock. Last year it was held on Canada Day, and it was a few years prior to that the first one was held. The event has raised $7,000, (last year alone) which went into the revitalization pot. "We have a good business case for the grant, which we'll send in a request for funding in the summer." If all goes as planned, work could start on the project next year. More than 1,000 people came to Rideau Ferry last year for the Canada Day event, but Cameron wanted to separate this event from the Canada Day party, and in future, hold it on the last Saturday in June, to entice more people to join the fun. There will be a barge coming in from the yacht club, thanks to John McLaughlin, where the bands will set up and rotate through the afternoon. The Doherty Brothers will

“With Le Boat now in Smiths Falls and the tourists coming through, we want to make it more enjoyable for people to visit.” - Scott Cameron open the show at noon. Band members include Cameron, John and Ray Doherty, John McElroy, Brian Timmins and Terry Donahue. Playing about an hour to 90 minutes, next up will be The Continentals, including Dennis Staples, Dave White, Paul Hanrahan and Art Lee. Then it's the Ramblers with Josh and Clark Bingley, Taylor Bowes and Nathan White. Basic White is on tour right now with a stop at the Rideau Ferry dock where they will be on stage around 4:30 p.m. They have played notable opening slots for Mother Mother, Classified, Our Lady Peace, Treble Charger, and Ill Scarlett. The closing band for the June 30 event is the Totally Hip, a cover band for the Tragically Hip. Members include John and Jim Levatte, John Dorsch, and Mike and Chris Perkins. Jimmy's Snack Shack will be barbecuing and the Bethel United Church group will be offering sandwiches. And of course, CC's will be open for business. "This will be our first Rock the Dock as the new owners of CC's," said Erin van Pelt. She and her husband Greg Wilkinson purchased the business in the winter.

LEGEND HAS IT True or false? • The Rideau Ferry Inn was first known as The Coutts House. It was also called the Poonamalie Pavilion, but not many knew that. • A guitar case is just the right size to stash a 24 of beer. . There was no liquor license for the Rideau Ferry Inn when it was first built in 1947. It was a BYOB party on the weekends. • Mr. Oliver, who operated the ferry service prior to the new bridge being built over the Rideau River, was known to host visitors in his home. Once they accepted his invitation to stay the night, they were never seen again. • Were the Rideau Ferry Inn and the Antler Lodge lost to random, accidental fires, or was it arson? – with historical files from Ken Watson and Arlene Stafford-Wilson

Two local breweries will be offering craft beers on tap including 4 Degrees Brewing from Smiths Falls and the Perth Brewery. Ample parking and a shuttle service will be available from the yacht club and the south side of the bridge. To keep folks safe, security personnel will also be on site. "We want to reconnect with our roots," said Cameron. "Rideau Ferry has always been known for its music." Just ask Dennis Staples, a member of The Continentals, now 71, who happened to pop by the restaurant on Friday. Staples was part of the house band back in the '60s at the Rideau Ferry Inn. The inn made up the lower floor, and the dance hall was above it. "I remember the crowds," he said. "There were easily 1,000 people upstairs. If you were downstairs, you'd wonder how the ceiling didn't fall in." But Staples also remembered when bands like the Stampeders were in town. "It was something else," he

said, as he reminisced. It was in the winter of 1986 that the inn was razed in a fire, and the current restaurant was built "I think the future of Rideau Ferry looks good," Staples said. "This is a tourism-based community." Hosting events like the popular Rideau Ferry Regatta that was made famous in the 1920s and '30s, and bringing back the musicians, Legendary Rideau Ferry is open for business. The dock will rock on June 30, rain or shine.

Company of Fools comes to MERA Schoolhouse A Company of Fools has been delighting audiences all across Canada since 1990 as Ottawa's original professional Shakespeare company. This year the presentation outdoors at Mcdonalds Corners & Elphin Recreation & Arts (MERA) will be Twelfth Night, directed by Bronwyn Steinberg. The play contains shipwrecks, mistaken identity, and is Shakespeare's most musical comedy! Combined with the fact that this show is "pass-the-hat with no tickets required", there's no excuse not to take in a fun, family friendly night of theatre in your own neighbourhood! The mandate of the Fools is to

produce innovative, entertaining and accessible shows based on the works of William Shakespeare. We produce original works inspired by Shakespeare as well as performing his plays. We are a not-for-profit incorporation and a registered charity. A Company of Fools Returns to MERA on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 at 7 p.m. Suggested donation is $20 with all proceeds to Company of Fools. Dinner before the show, starting at 5:30 p.m. until the food runs out we will be having chili, garlic bread, salad, rice, desert and lemonade for only $10. All proceeds to MERA. – submitted by MERA

respect for the person holding the talking piece ensures active listening in the Knowledge Sharing Circle offers parents and educators an alternative learning experience that exercises head, heart and hands-on activities together in the outdoor classroom. Restorative circle guidelines promotes inclusiveness for all participants to exercise their voice within the school community as well as build stronger connections with their self confidence, self identity and purpose. Ecoliteracy discussions about gardening and growing our own food, respect for farmers, respect for our health, and respect for the earth will be topics of interest while the restorative communication practice in circle sharing dialogues will nurture the importance of hearing everyone's voice,

exercising inclusion and connection as well as share participants fruitful ideas about our respectful roles and reverence for nature. Drummond Central School is well on their way to enrich their restorative culture as their outdoor education program not only engages students and teachers but also includes mentoring parents in the outdoor classroom.

We hold you close within our hearts, And there you will remain, To walk with us throughout our lives, Until we meet again. Lovingly remembered, Reta and family

June Conroy December 29, 1934 - June 16, 2017 Time speeds on, one year has passed Since death it’s gloom, it’s shadows cast Within our home, where all seemed bright And took from us a shining light We will miss that light, and ever will Her vacant place there’s none to fill Down here we mourn, but not in vain For up in heaven will meet again. Sadly missed, forever loved, Lyle, Cheryl & Dave, Tracey & Blake

For our meeting of June 21, 2018, we will gather at Maximilian's Restaurant, 99 Gore St. E., Perth at 7:30 p.m. in a very different event for us - a meet and mingle, with one of Perth's long established members of the business community. This meeting will vary from our usual routine of a guest presenter without an opportunity to mingle with others that you see frequently and who share your interest in our area's history. We will help Maximilian's Restaurant celebrate their 45th anniversary. And, as the date happens to mark the official start to summer, welcome the summer solstice, an ancient tradition. Also, it is anticipated that this will provide an enjoyable opportunity for all to meet your committee and other "friends" of the society in one of Perth's more prominent historic buildings. You will enjoy a special selection of sweet and savoury finger foods from Maximilian's kitchen, learn the restaurant's story and be introduced to the history of this beautiful 1850 heritage building. There will also be

draws courtesy of local supporters - Maximilian's Restaurant, the Book Nook, and Computer Plus. For this occasion, tickets will be required at a small charge of $10 per person (alcoholic beverages extra). Advance tickets are preferred please, necessary to help with planning. Tickets may be obtained at the Book Nook, 60 Gore St. E., Perth, or by contacting Ellen Dean at 613-264-8362. If you have food allergies or sensitivities, please advise Maximilian's Restaurant directly in advance at 613-267-2536. The Perth and District Historical Society is dedicated to learning about and popularizing our history, and celebrating our area's rich culture and heritage. The meetings are open to the public on the third Thursday of each month, at 7:30 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion, PerthUpon-Tay, Branch 244, home of the Hall of Remembrance, 26 Beckwith St. E. in Perth. The usual toonie fee applies for each meeting. For information, contact Ellen Dean at 613264-8362. Our website at www.perthhs.org has information about us and items of interest related to Perth and district. – submitted by the Perth and District Historical Society

Auditions open for 'Mary Poppins' The Perth Community Choir is excited to announce that the world's favourite magical nanny will be paying Perth a visit this coming November. In fact, they are "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" excited! At their recent annual general meeting the board of directors approved Mary Poppins for their 2018 community musical. "Mary Poppins is a Disney classic," said artistic director David Bird. "It appeals to adults just as much as it does to children and our audience has come to expect both excellence and familyfriendly entertainment." Bird has wanted to direct this show for many years. "Mary Poppins is a musical about the importance of family. It's filled with magic and beautiful imagination. It has great classic songs from the original film

and some new ones written especially for the stage version. It's a wonderful show that can really showcase the incredible talent we have in this area. Not only are there great leading roles, the most well-known being the practically perfect Mary and chimney sweep Bert and supporting cameo roles such as Mr. and Mrs. Banks, but there are wonderful choral numbers too." Information about where, when and how to audition can be found at: www.perthcommunitychoir.com or at www.facebook.com/PerthCommunityChoir. "We're hoping to generate a lot of excitement," said Bird. "A musical of this scale needs not only actors and musicians but many other volunteers to perform vital behind the scenes roles." – submitted by Marilyn Bird
