DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com They stepped up when their country called, but now they can't march as they once did. This year's Remembrance Day parade will be much shorter than it has been in years past, when veterans would muster at the Perth Royal Canadian Legion on Beckwith Street and would march just over a kilometre to the Great War Memorial site of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital every Nov. 11. However, "because our veterans are getting elderly, a lot of them can't march," said Stacey Niceliu, the Perth Legion's sergeant-at-arms, during a telephone interview on Thursday, Nov. 1. This year, the veterans will be forming up in the hospital parking lot near Isabella Street. The parade will then march out onto Isa-

Municipal Connection ARE YOU PREPARED? In light of the recent weather events which took place extremely close to home, the Town of Perth wants to remind citizens of a few things. Emergencies can happen at any time making utilities, roads and crucial supplies unavailable. Individuals should be prepared to survive on their own for at least 72 hours (three days) at home and at work while the municipality is attending to the emergency and protection of municipal infrastructure (i.e. water, roads, etc.) A 72-Hour Emergency Kit can easily be put together and kept at home and at work. While many of the items are common sense (non-perishable food items and water for family members, pets and staff ) other items may not come to mind as easily. The kit(s) should also contain cash (as bank machines may be disabled), personal identification, medications, contact phone numbers, etc. Full details on the kit contents and emergency plans can be found at www.ontario.ca/emo. It is important for members of the public to be aware of Perth’s Emergency Response Plan available on our web-site, www.perthcanada.com. Parents should be aware of the emergency plan at their child’s school and instruct their child accordingly. At work, in the event of a major emergency, employees should know what will be expected of them and how the employer will work with them. Perth has developed an emergency management program to safeguard its citizens. Keeping the public apprised of updates and factual information during and following the emergency is also part of Perth’s emergency management program. Use of different media (radio, TV, internet and others) is planned to communicate to the public during an event. Perth is doing its part to be prepared, are you?

Each student who participated was asked to complete a fire safety checklist and word search. Once again we received numerous completed submissions. Second and third place winners from each school were given gift cards. First place winners, along with a friend they chose, were picked up by a Fire Truck and taken to McDonald’s for lunch on Tuesday, October 30, 2018. Thank you to the schools, teachers and students who took part and a very special thank you to McDonald’s for continuing to support Fire Prevention Week with The Perth Fire Services and Drummond/North Elmsley/Tay Valley Fire Rescue.

CARBON MONOXIDE AWARENESS WEEK RUNS NOVEMBER 1-7, 2018: BEAT THE SILENT KILLER – PREVENT CO IN YOUR HOME

Ontario’s Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week runs from November 1-7, and the Perth Fire Services reminds you to prevent carbon monoxide (CO) in your home by getting all fuelburning appliances inspected annually. “In Ontario, more than 65% of injuries and deaths from CO occur in the home,” said Trevor Choffe, Fire Chief. “We want to make sure everyone is safe from CO. Get all fuel-burning appliances inspected by a registered contractor.” Visit COSafety.ca to find a registered contractor near you. The Perth Fire Services also reminds you to install CO alarms in your home if you have a fuelburning appliance, a fireplace or an attached garage. Fuel-burning appliances can include furnaces, hot water heaters, gas or wood fireplaces, portable fuel-burning heaters and generators, barbeques, stoves and vehicles. “You must have a working CO alarm adjacent to each sleeping area of the home if your home has a fuel-burning appliance, a fireplace or an attached garage,” said Chief Choffe. “For added protection, install a carbon monoxide alarm on every storey of the home according to manufacturer’s instructions.” If you live in a condo or apartment building with a service room, CO alarms must be installed in the service room and adjacent to each sleeping area of all homes above, below and beside the service room. In condo or apartment buildings that have a garage, CO alarms must be installed adjacent to each sleeping area of all homes above, below and beside the garage. What is CO? • CO is known as the silent killer because it is an invisible, tasteless and odourless gas that can be deadly. • CO is produced when fuels such as propane, gasoline, natural gas, heating oil or wood do not burn completely in fuel-burning appliances and devices such as furnaces, gas or wood fireplaces, hot water heaters, stoves, barbeques, portable fuel-burning heaters and generators and vehicles. Prevent CO in your home: • Ensure fuel-burning appliances, chimneys and vents are cleaned and inspected annually. Visit COSafety.ca to find a registered contractor near you. • Check that all outside appliance vents are not blocked. • Gas and charcoal barbeques should only be used outside, away from all doors, windows, vents, and other building openings. Never use barbeques inside garages, even if the garage doors are open. • Portable fuel-burning generators should only be used outdoors in well-ventilated areas away from windows, doors, vents and other building openings. • Ensure all portable fuel-burning heaters are vented properly, according to manufacturer’s instructions. • Never use the stove or oven to heat your home. • Open the flue before using a fireplace for adequate ventilation. • Never run a vehicle or other fueled engine or motor inside a garage, even if the garage doors are open. Always remove a vehicle from the garage immediately after starting it. Know the symptoms of CO: • Exposure to CO can cause flu-like symptoms such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, as well as confusion, drowsiness, loss of consciousness and death. • If your CO alarm sounds, and you or other occupants suffer from symptoms of CO poisoning, get everyone out of the home immediately. Then call 9-1-1 or your local emergency services number from outside the building. • If your CO alarm sounds, and no one is suffering from symptoms of CO poisoning, check to see if the battery needs replacing, or the alarm has reached its “end-of-life” before calling 9-1-1. Know the sound of your CO alarm: • Your CO alarm sounds different than your smoke alarm. Test both alarms monthly and make sure everyone in your home knows the difference between the two alarm sounds. • Don’t be confused by the sound of your CO alarm’s low-battery warning. Follow your CO alarm manufacturer’s instructions so you know the difference between the low-battery warning, the “end-of-life” warning, and the alarm alerting you to the presence of CO in your home. For more CO safety tips, visit the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management’s website and COsafety.ca. To reach the Perth Fire Services, please call 613-267-5574.

PARKING POLICY CHANGES IN PERTH DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@ metroland.com Town hall is warning motorists that while their first-time ticket may be free, it all depends on where you parked. "(The parking) policy only applies to free park-

ing in the downtown core," explained director of development and protective services, Forbes Symon in an email exchange on Tuesday, Oct. 30. Some motorists, however, believe "that it applies to all first-time tickets." Further to this, he

The purpose of the amendment is to change the zoning of the property from Seasonal Residential (RS) to Residential Limited Services Exception - 168(RLS-168).

bella toward Drummond Street, then turn right onto Drummond, toward the cenotaph, where about 20 chairs will be set up for them to sit among active military members and other ceremony participants. After the ceremony, which starts around 10:45 a.m., comes to an end, Drummond Street will be closed off for a portion of time that morning, between Mary and Isabella streets.

Dragoons Niceliu said that Perth was "very fortunate" to have the Royal Canadian Dragoons, stationed at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, joining them for the ceremony. Members of the Royal Canadian Regiment normally join the Perth ceremony, but they were unavailable this year, so this will mark the Dragoons' first visit to Perth.

They are a tank regiment, which is noteworthy since this Nov. 11 marks the 100th anniversary of the First World War's end, and that war was the first time that tanks were used in battle. In speaking with the Dragoons, Niceliu told them "feel free to have a LAV (Light Armored Vehicle) or a Coyote (tactical support vehicle)," join the ceremony. He noted that the old Lanark Renfrew Scottish Regiment head been headquartered in Perth during the First World War. As an artillery regiment, he had toyed with the idea of seeing if a shell could be fired off to recognize this. However, this plan came up against "a lot of logistics," said Niceliu, not the least of which was that the service takes place in front of a hospital, and that there are homes across the road, resulting in "a lot of percussion from the gun ... It would (have) set off car alarms also," and ceremonial artillery firings usually require a 100 metre circumference of space to be safely fired.

Bells of Peace There will be a Bells of Peace ceremony at the Crystal Palace that afternoon at 4:30 p.m., a celebration to honour those who died during "The Great War," which Niceliu reminds us was supposed to be "the war to end all wars. We never thought (at the time) this would happen again." Five churches across Perth will ring their bells at 5 p.m. exactly, tolling 100 times, to mark the 100th anniversary of the war's end. The bell ringing will coincide with bells ringing across Canada to mark the same anniversary. There is also an ongoing initiative "to identify as many descendants of First World War veterans as possible," said Niceliu. The Royal Canadian Legion and the federal government are hoping to identify as many burial sites of Canadian First World War soldiers as possible, as part of an online, digital resource that will provide relatives of these veterans with each soldier's military records, and, if possible, photos, and even grave site locations.

MAYOR NOW HAS FLAG POWER DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@ metroland.com The mayor of Perth now has the power to determine when the flag should be lowered at town hall. Shortly after the death of former Perth fire chief David Bell on Friday, Oct. 19, Mayor John Fenik wanted the Maple Leaf lowered as a sign of respect. However, according to Fenik, the flag was not lowered until Monday, Oct. 22, because of a discussion between himself and CAO Ron Ladd, who, Fenik said, was uncertain "if the policy allowed this," Fenik quoted Ladd as saying. In an email exchange with The Perth Courier on Wednesday, Oct. 31, Ladd explained his position that he had reviewed the town's flag policy "and noticed that the policy did not go far enough to recognize early responders. I wanted to bring to the attention of council that police or ambulance (workers) who are

first responders were not included in the policy and thought that in the event of a death, these early responders who also put their life and health at risk each day were not covered in the town flag policy," he wrote. Further to this, when it came to the "wording around Ontario firefighter," he "wanted to strengthen (the bylaw) to include active or nonactive firefighter." Having served as a bureaucrat in the Nunavut territory, having regular interactions with Canada's Inuit people, "I noticed ... that grand chiefs and chiefs were missing from the policy and in the event of a death, the policy did not go far enough to pay tribute and respect to them for their contributions to Canada." Fenik explained during a telephone interview on Oct. 30, that he called a special town council meeting for Tuesday, Oct. 23, "in order to give the mayor the discretion ... to lower the flag at any time," if, in future, "an

exceptional citizen, who may not be covered," by the town's old policy, died, and the mayor of the day feels that they should be remembered so that "we don't get caught up in some bureaucratic circle." The town's clerk, Lauren Walton, added during an interview on Oct. 25 that there was some question among staff about whether Bell, as a retired firefighter, would fall under the policy. The town's flag bylaw was changed to make it clear that a flag could be lowered to half-staff "upon notice of the death of a first responder, police, fire, ambulance, retired or active, the flag at the fire facility shall be flown at half-mast until the burial takes place." Bell was buried on Oct. 23, the last day the flag flew at half-staff. The bylaw was also adjusted to allow for the "death of an Ontario First Nations chief or national chief," and allows "the mayor, at his/her discretion, may approve a written request related to this policy, addressed to the mayor."

LEST WE FORGET WHAT THOSE WHO FOUGHT AND DIED FOR OUR FREEDOM WERE FIGHTING FOR Nov. 11, 2018 will be the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, or what contemporaries optimistically referred to as "la der des ders," meaning the last of last. So horrific were the gas bomb atrocities and trench warfare casualty lists, that the people who lived through it could scarcely imagine that two decades later their sons and daughters would see an even more destructive and painful war waged across virtually every continent.Critical civil and democratic rights were gained in Canada during the period between these wars. In 1918, women became eligible to vote in most provinces. The general strikes of 1919, borne out of the frustrations of rising inequality, resulted in increased union participation rates across the country, lifting wages and culminating in many of the benefits we now enjoy, such as employment insurance (1940). Many attribute these gains to the fact that the people who had lived through the hell of war wanted their sacrifices to mean something. So when despots rose in the 1930s, threatening world peace, they knew what they were fighting for, and they did what was necessary to preserve our freedom. Yet in 2018, many voters worldwide have chosen a different path. For a variety of reasons, voters in the U.S., Brazil and other western nations are choosing an eerily familiar path that resembles the sort of fascism that rose in the mid-20th century. As a result, the rights of groups such as people of colour and immigrants are at risk. We need look no further than the neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville in the summer of 2017, and the American president who defended them for a very literal example of how hate and intolerance are being condoned by leadership. It's not hard to the link this climate to terrorist violence, such as the recent Pittsburg synagogue shooting. We urge readers to consider what the heroes we remember on Remembrance Day were fighting for. Regardless of one's political beliefs, hopefully we can all agree that all people, regardless of gender, religion, ethnic background or sexual orientation, deserve to be treated equally and with respect. Our ancestors who served in wars aimed at preserving freedom would certainly want Canadians to be vigilant, and make sure what we are seeing in the U.S. never comes to our country. Lest we forget those who died for our rights and freedom. Lest we forget what they were fighting for.

WHO WE ARE LETTERS & COMMENTARY NOT EVERYONE LIKES AIR CONDITIONING DEAR EDITOR, ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW (ON AIR CONDITIONING AT LANARK LODGE).

My husband's 100-yearold grandmother lived in a new facility in Winnipeg. In the centre of this bright and lovely facility, a skylighted atrium was created as a square, with a walkway and comfortable seating. The centre was filled with an amazing array of green plants and trees. It was thought that this would be an ideal space for seniors to spend some time as they might wish. Each time we visited, the space remained void of anyone at all. Being a gardener and with the indoor/outdoor style of the space, I had to ask staff why. I was told that the area was air-conditioned and the residents did not return after their initial visit, because it was just too cold. Dealing with my own elderly parents re-enforced that they were un-

able to spend any great length of time in areas that were air-conditioned in their facility, and they often requested extra blankets at night even though their room had no air-conditioning. It seems that older people can really feel the cool/ cold and therefore not all of them would benefit from a "blanket" rule of air-conditioning throughout their building. Oh, and eventually, the central atrium in Winnipeg was renovated; plants, walkway and benches removed, and it became office space for administrative staff.

GROUP SEEKING CLIMATE ACTION WITH UPDATE ON POLICIES DEAR EDITOR,

We delivered to MP Scott Reid a summary of the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report. The report's message is that the door is closing on our chances for a healthy fu-

ture. We have to cut our greenhouse gas emissions in half in 12 years. This message is effectively science's message, the same science that guides planes down to safe landings and makes your cellphone work to access the world. The message is that we're in a perilous situation with respect to planetary warming. We asked Mr. Reid to pledge that, before the next election, he will propose, champion and support legislation to update Canada's climate policies and bring them in line with the urgency called for in the IPCC report. The summary is available at http://report.ipcc.ch/sr15/pdf/ sr15_spm_final.pdf We ask that Mr. Reid be another voice within the Conservative caucus for climate action. The precautionary principle means we must take action to ensure our best chances for a safe future. Respectfully,

LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com Funding more staff for the Lanark Lodge longterm care facility in Perth is on the agenda for Lanark County council's consideration, but so is cutting back on some of the programs that are offered. Jeannie Bingley, the interim care director at the lodge, presented her report to county council on Oct. 10 where she outlined the current situation at the lodge - 163-bed facility with 127 people currently on the waiting list Bingley indicated the budget may include a substantial increase to the levy, and outlined issues the long-term care home is facing around insufficient direct care-to-resident staffing ratios, insuf-

ficient provincial funding and ongoing staffing shortages. "Management is not seeking a commitment from council at this time," she said. "Rather, this is an opportunity to provide continued awareness of the state of long-term care in Ontario and receive feedback prior to finalizing the budget to be presented to the new council." Bingley noted that management is undertaking a detailed review of capital needs and is also recommending an increase in direct care staffing of personal support workers (PSW).

TAY VALLEY FIRST TO ALLOW TINY HOMES IN LANARK COUNTY Tay Valley Township's general update to its zoning bylaw has passed with no appeals, making it the first municipality in Lanark County to allow tiny homes. "Council wants to provide a range of housing opportunities in Tay Valley," said Reeve Kerr. "Tiny houses are a more affordable option and can suit the lifestyle of young adults starting out on their own and seniors who are downsizing." There was a good response in the township to secondary units, when they were permitted two years ago, and the town-

ship received many inquiries about tiny houses, from affordable housing advocates, residents, and from people interested in moving to the township. "When we looked at the increase in new houses we have experienced over the past two years, especially the increase in 2017 of 85 per cent more houses than the previous three-year average, we saw that the types of houses being built were more at the high end of the market," noted Kerr. "Council wanted to make sure we weren't leaving out residents who were interested in other types of housing, so we decided to

go beyond the status quo and permit tiny houses." Other changes to the zoning bylaw include: implementation of provincial mapping of floodplains, source water intake protection zones, and significant wetlands; expanded definition of on-farm diversified uses to give farmers more flexibility to provide agritourism; and permission for sleeping cabins (as long as these bunkies are included as a bedroom in septic calculations). "Council also increased the size of home-based businesses and expanded the definition of their permitted uses to encourage innovative economic development," Reeve Kerr stated. Submitted by Tay Valley Township.

DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@ metroland.com The Lanark village municipal arena is back up and running. After being closed for several weeks, starting on Sept. 24, the facility was reopened on Wednesday, Oct. 17, according to a press release issued by Lanark Highlands Township. The press release, signed by the township's acting clerk administrator, Steven Potter, stated that "the essential remedial work on the (arena) will be completed by Tuesday, Oct. 16." Staff would then recommend to township council, during their Oct. 16 meeting, "that the building

be reopened to the public," starting the next day. "The ice surface, dressing rooms, lobby, canteen, and spectator stands will be open, with the total building capacity limit of 400 people," wrote Potter. However, "the upstairs will remain closed."

LANARK LODGE LOOKING TO ADD FRONT-LINE STAFF Continued from page 9

er, frailer and in need of more medical and personal care than ever before," Bingley said. "This measurement is defined as resident acuity, which is continually rising without corresponding funding and staffing increases." An increase in PSW hours would increase the amount of personal care received by residents. Lanark County warden John Fenik (Perth mayor) spoke to the issue on Monday, Nov. 5 in a phone interview with the Perth Courier. "Lanark Lodge is a place of excellence," he said. "It's funded directly by county council. This

year we budgeted a little over $13 million for operating costs. The building is fairly old so this year we budgeted $716,000 for capital costs." What has changed in long-term care, and it's not specific to Lanark Lodge, it is increasingly difficult to get front line staff care, he said. "Every facility is looking for personal support workers. There are not enough to go around, and nursing staff," Fenik said. "Without those two critical components for front-line care, things are very difficult. So we're shifting our focus on funding additional nursing positions and PSW positions, because quite frankly, it is reaching a

crisis for front line staff." Fenik said working with the aging population is a difficult job. "Elder care is not that easy as seniors are living longer and there is a whole wrath of issues to deal with - levels of dementia are up, levels of Alzheimer's are up. People are living longer, but quality of life is not necessarily that great either. Being a nurse or a PSW in long-term care facilities are difficult and hard work. They are regularly subjected to verbal abuse, physical abuse and it's very difficult to hold onto staff." Fenik said that yes, they will probably be looking at a tax increase. "Provincially, long-

term care dollars don't move that quickly. I think we need the province to step in here too, but we have to put money into making sure our elders are cared for and there is dignity in the final stages of life and that they're well looked after. That's going to take more money and it's going to take more staff." So cutting things like spiritual care, Fenik apologized. "I'm sorry, but feeding, clothing, frontline care for our residents, that comes first. I think we are going to be spending more money looking after these folks, as we should. Our shift is going into more front-line care and more support in that area."

Bingley said long-term care homes have high care needs. "The province should provide a sufficient and fixed level of funding per bed to all homes, which would help stabilize care for residents and reduce the current administrative burden to secure funding," she said. Lanark Lodge is undertaking efforts to make it attractive to new employees and to improve retention. The report shows that management is looking at heating and cooling improvements to the D Wing, which they would fund through reserves if the budget is approved. The lodge's capital reserve

budget sits at $2.37 million. Bingley also noted in an email to this newspaper, that pastoral care hours are being reduced in 2019. "The four hours per month in 2019 will be provided by contractual services," she wrote. "Music therapy is continuing but must be paid by residents/ family (many already paid for their own). This is a contractual service and has never been an employee of the lodge. The lodge receives no funding for either of these services so all shortfalls have to be funded by taxpayer." The budget is expected to be finalized early in the new year.

Lanark Lodge is facing program cuts to help offset cost of hiring more front-line workers.

STEPHANIE GRAY WRITES ABOUT THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE THAT REALLY MATTER. STEPHANIE GRAY Column

After you read this column, there is a good chance you will shake your head sadly and wonder about my sanity. But life's about enjoying the little things, I tells ya. So, I'm going to talk about mugs.

I like mugs. It didn't occur to me until recently that I might be a little obsessed with them. I think it all started in elementary school when I was in Girl Guides, and one year I sold a lot of cookies and won a mug and a key chain. (Yes, that really did happen.) The mug was white with the blue Girl Guides logo on it. I loved that mug and I had it for years. Eventually it cracked, but I used it for a long time as a pencil holder. (I still have the key chain and I always try to "be prepared.") In university, I graduated from wholesome Girl Guide stuff to profanity with my "STRESS" mug. Below those big bold letters

it says: "The confusion created when one's mind overrides the body's basic desire to choke the living **** out of some ******* who desperately deserves it." I often start my day with that mug. Sometimes I continue my day with it. It echoes one of my life rules: "Use your filters." The mug has encapsulated my mood for years and serves me well. (I will try not to break it.) To counter those more radical tendencies, I also had a much more sedate mug with a bunny on it. I do love bunnies. They are soft and quiet. (That mug eventually cracked and had to be retired. Not sure if that's a metaphor.) About a year ago, a

friend showed up at my door with a mug gift that is a perfect fit. It says: "I'm silently correcting your grammar." Hehehe. Love that mug. I should put it on my desk when I am teaching. (There are people who have told me they are afraid to text me because they might make a mistake. I honestly don't think I am prone to yelling at people about grammar. After all, if everyone could spell and punctuate properly, I would be out of work.) For Mother's Day I got a nice big mug that says "#MOMLIFE," so of course I try to use it whenever I am doing chores. Because of the glamour of it all. Especially when cleaning the

was a dreary day and it's a cheerful mug. So now they think I'm super weird instead of just a little weird. Anyway, the mug is bright pink with a sunny yellow handle. There's a sparkly yellow crown at the top and it says, "QUEEN OF AWESOMENESS!!" Not only is that excellent in itself, but when you finish your beverage, at the bottom of the cup is a little yellow starburst that says, "YEAH!" And that just makes me say "yeah" and giggle. Like every time so far. Mugs, people. It's the little things, I tells ya.

CHEERS TO THE QUEEN OF AWESOMENESS

turtle tank. Another friend surprised me with a mug this summer that I keep at work and fill predominantly with calming herbal teas. Is says: "Not to spoil the ending, but everything will be OK." It's a helpful mug for when things get wonky, but you don't actually want to throttle someone. Another friend recently made a mug for me that matches my tattoo. Yep. You don't hear that every day. I love it! In the summer, I won a mug at a silent auction. I kept it in the box for a while because, really, I have a mug space problem now. I really need to get rid of some of the boring, nondescript mugs in my cupboard. I hauled it out last week, though. I even told my students about it because it

SPARTAN ARMY RUN COLLECTS MORE THAN $700 FOR WAR AMPS, PERTH PTSD CLINIC DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@ metroland.com

Desmond Devoy/Metroland Early Childhood Education and Police Foundations students at Algonquin College's Perth campus pose in front of the police program's cruiser, having filled it to overflowing in the college garage with more than 1,600 lbs. of food on Halloween, before transportation to the food bank at The Table Community Food Centre.

RELENTLESS.

It may not have been a run through the muddy trenches on the western front, but students got a taste of running the gauntlet through harsh, warlike conditions last week. St. John Catholic High School in Perth hosted its third annual Spartan Army Run on Friday, Nov. 2. The run raised $779, which was split between the Canadian War Amps and the Project Trauma Support program at the Tay River Reflections medical spa in Perth. Canada's soldiers "went through 100 times worse," said teacher and organizer Jeff Peters, as he pointed to the obstacle course, the swollen ditch, the cold rain and wind that awaited the 41 registered runners on their 2.7 km trek. "(This is) a smidge of a taste of what our soldiers went through," especially in the muddy trenches of France during the First World War, which ended 100 years ago this month.

Desmond Devoy/Metroland Joseph Bridson tries to steady himself after he ran through the full ditch onto the track at St. John Catholic High School in Perth during the Spartan Army Run on Friday, Nov. 2. The only difference between soldiers going over the top in 1918, and today, is that "you guys don't have guys shooting at you." Along the way, there were small posters detailing conflicts Canada has been involved in since Confederation in 1867. "This is a great schoolbuilding event," said Peters, but more than that, "this is your chance to show you care." It was also an opportunity to "reflect

and give thanks to those people," who served, "so that we could be here today." He explained to students that the PTSD clinic "helps soldiers and first responders who are dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder," he said. The school will be holding its annual Remembrance Day ceremony in the gymnasium on Friday, Nov. 9, starting around 10 a.m.

PDCI STUDENTS DESIGN TURNTABLE SLIPMATS AT BACKBEAT BOOKS DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@ metroland.com Perth and District Collegiate Institute students have gone to the mat, but in the best possible way. Earlier this year, Backbeat Books and Music, located on 6 Wilson St. W. in Perth, "was looking for a new slipmat design," said Grade 8 student Abby King, during an interview in the media arts classroom on Friday, Nov. 2. Last semester, former PDCI teacher Joe Chalmers and current media arts teacher Paul Gallien approached the store about creating turntable mats, designed by students. "Joe Chalmers was the original contact between the class and BackBeat," said Gallien. "It's Joe's baby as much as it is mine. Maybe more." King recalled that students in her class were asked to "draw something that was music-themed. That was based on what BackBeat was."

King's design turned out to be the winning intermediate design. "I couldn't believe it," said King. "I never win in competitions, or draws. I was in awe." Students in Chalmers' Grade 7-8 class created the initial concepts for the slipmats, while students in Gallien's Grade 11-12 media arts class selected the designs they favoured, modified them slightly, and then created the final artwork to format. The designs were then submitted to BackBeat for review, when a winner was selected. The winning design was by student Cody Pratt, who has since graduated. "Once the slipmats were done, they needed a poster to advertise," said Grade 12 student Nicole McKimm. "That's when I came in," she said, as hers was the winning poster design, to advertise King's winning mat design. "I am planning on going into [the] graphic design and conceptual art field," said McKimm, who plans to attend Algonquin College in

Perth next year. "I really like being visual, being able to create. All of my favourite courses are in the arts." McKimm looked at previous posters put out by the store, to try and match their styles and fonts, to "match the style they were going for." "You did a really good job of mimicking their design," said teacher Paul Gallien, jumping into the conversation. "I think that's why you were chosen." "It all had to be copyrightfree," Gallien said of the mat designs and the posters. He told his students that having a problem with copyrighted material "would be very bad for our client. You had to prove it [that an image was copyright-free] and go to the website and show where it says these are copyrightfree." To make life easier for herself, "I didn't use any images from the internet," said McKimm.

Working together As a teacher, now that the project has landed on store shelves, "it's simply pride in

the students involved." He was delighted to assign a project that was "a valid task ... a real task, [which] they took seriously. They get it." And when dealing with a real task, students know that there are "real consequences," said Gallien. "Set valid tasks and get students working outside of the school." Even with those real consequences, "it was a really fun project to do," said McKimm.

Good reception Later that day, over at the BackBeat store on Wilson Street, owner Daniel Chu had high praise for the work of the students. "We have done our own in the past, with our logo," said Chu. But this is the "first time we've teamed up with someone to do something for us." Chu explained that, in the vinyl and turntable world, some turntable mats "are for function, [while others] are for design." As of that afternoon, he had 15 mats on sale at the store already. "I've sold a few, but I haven't really put them out yet," he said. He agreed with Gallien that for students, it was both a project, but something more. "It was something that has become real." The mats sell for about $16.95, plus tax.

Some of Canada's top theatre reviewers have honoured the Classic Theatre Festival with three Capital Critics Circle Awards nominations for artistic excellence during their 2018 summer season in Perth. An awards ceremony will be held at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa on Dec. 3. Laurel Smith, a Perth resident and the Classic Theatre Festival's artistic producer, was nominated both for Best Direction - her third nomination in the category since 2016 - and Best Production (again, her third consecutive nomination) for the nail-biting thriller Angel Street, a.k.a. Gaslight. Meanwhile, Toronto-based performer Catherine McNally garnered a Best Actress nomination for the title role in the G.B. Shaw classic Mrs. Warren's Profession. It's the third season in a row that the Capital Critics Circle has nominated Classic Theatre Festival shows: the 2016 season saw four nominations that were fol-

lowed by an additional five in 2017. "We are blessed to host amazing talent here every summer, both on the stage with Canada's top professional performers as well as behind the scenes, from stage managers and assistant stage managers to folks who bring us the beautiful look and feel of the show, like our lighting designer, Wesley McKenzie, our costume designer, Renate Seiler, and last year's set designer, Roger Schultz," says Smith. "And while it is wonderful to have theatre critics praise the high quality of our shows, it is incredibly gratifying that our audiences are having such a great time here as well. Over 80 per cent of them are tourists, and they really help pump up the summertime economy by eating in restaurants, staying overnight, and shopping in our local stores while they're here." In the meantime, the festival is busy preparing for its 10th anniversary season

in 2019. Next season's mainstage offerings will feature the ninth-longest running play in Broadway history, the remarkable Second World War-era romantic comedy The Voice of the Turtle (by John Van Druten); George Bernard Shaw's most popular play, the hilarious Pygmalion (the basis for the musical My Fair Lady); and the longest-running comedy-thriller in Broadway history, Ira Levin's Deathtrap (by the author of Rosemary's Baby, The Boys from Brazil and The Stepford Wives). The festival also plans its fifth annual season of theatrical walking plays with a brand new show on how residents of Perth came together to survive the Great Depression (running five mornings and two evenings a week). Tickets can be ordered online at www.classictheatre.ca or by calling 1-877283-1283. Submitted by Matthew Behrens.

OPINION

STONE MARTEN FURS DID NOT SIT WELL WITH YOUNG MARY SUCH GARMENTS WERE NOT COMMON IN RENFREW COUNTY IN 1930S, COLUMNIST WRITES MARY COOK Column

It would be the second time I would see a set of Stone Marten Furs. The first time was when Mother's friend from New York came to visit and she had a set around her neck, which I was sure were alive. Sitting in the back seat of the Model T, I had a good look at them, and realized they were dead as door nails! Why anyone would wear a pair of dead animals

around their neck was beyond me. And then I saw, for the second time in my life, another pair, and again they were draped around someone's neck. Mother had taken me with her to a meeting in Renfrew, where a bunch of women who belonged to local Women's Institutes were gathered together in a church hall to talk about what they would do to help the poor families in the area. I couldn't imagine anyone poorer than we were, but there they sat discussing ways and means of lending a helping hand to those who didn't have enough money to even put food on their tables. We ate like kings on the farm. There was always a smoke house full of meat, chickens, geese and ducks, a sauerkraut barrel and salt

pork in the summer kitchen, and enough vegetables, pickles and preserves in the cellar to feed half of Renfrew County. We had lots of food. We just didn't have any money. Well, that day in a church hall, a woman who seemed to be running things, was sitting right in front of us, and around her neck was a set of Marten furs, exactly like the ones Mother's friend from New York wore! Right away I lost interest in the talk from the woman at the front of the hall. I leaned forward in my chair so that I was just inches away from the little beady black eyes that were looking back at me. I could tell they weren't real, but tiny little glass beads. And the mouth of one Stone Marten was firmly attached to the body of the one beside it. Like it was biting it!

I felt the eyes were staring right at me, but any way I moved in my chair, I couldn't get away from them, and it was almost like I was responsible for their being wrapped around someone's neck. I had no idea what animal the furs had come from, but I was quite sure we didn't have any like them in Renfrew County. I was dying to touch the one that was stretched right across the back of the woman's neck. But then I wondered, what if it came to life? So I had to content myself with just staring at its little beady black eyes. It seemed the meeting was about to come to a close, because the woman who was standing at the front of the hall announced that tea would be served, and asked the woman with the animals around her neck if she

would say grace. It looked like she was more than happy to oblige, because she jumped up, set her purse on the floor, and unwrapped the furs from around her neck, flinging them onto the back of her chair. They missed connecting, and landed square on my lap, now with four black beady eyes staring at me. I let a war-hoop out of me, flung the furs onto the floor, and slid over to Mother who wasn't at all pleased at my carry-on. I wouldn't even bend down to pick them up, and I couldn't wait to get back to Northcote to tell everyone about the woman who wore animals wrapped around her neck. My brother Emerson didn't believe me and said I was making the whole story up. As always my sister Audrey settled the issue once and for all. She had a copy of

a movie magazine, well read, and she opened it up to a page where one of the famous stars of the day was wearing a set of Martin Furs exactly like the ones I had just seen in Renfrew. As far as I was concerned, if I never again came close to another set of furs wrapped around someone's neck as long as I lived, it would be too soon for me!

Submitted/CFUW It's nearly time for the 13th annual Heritage Perth & District Christmas House Tour, which will feature eight homes in the Perth and Lanark areas. The yearly tradition is co-ordinated by the Perth & District chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women and serves as a fundraiser for the organization. Pictured, Clyde Hall B&B will be one of the tour stops, a regal home built in the mid-1800s surrounded by political intrigue. and Gifts, with exterior greenery courtesy of Canadian Tire. An artisan homestead (194 Foster Drive, Lanark) still carries the charm it had when first built in the mid-1800s. Visitors will have an opportunity to view the owners' art and woodworking collections, which enhance the family house. The homeowner will tackle decorating duties and florals featured will be created by North 44 Landscape Design Inc. The final location in Lanark (205 McIlquham Blair, Lanark) is a 200-year-old legacy farm steeped in Scottish heritage. Kelly's Flowers will provide decor and interior florals, with outside urns by The Garden Market. "The light-filled family home showcases many original features; one of special note is a stone sink at a kitchen window where the first grandmother washed dishes," the website states. The tour continues into Drummond-North Elmsley and a handcrafted log home (3152 Drummond Concession 5A) constructed exclusively from white pine from the family's Lanark Highlands property. A stone fireplace, unique breakfast bar and large windows will catch the eye. Creative Gardens Landscaping will be the decorator/florist for this property. Venturing into the Town of Perth, guests will be welcomed

into an elegant stone home (107 Peter Street, Perth), with an elegant porch. Decorated in the French country style, the house features furniture restored by the homeowner as well as handpainted memorabilia. The homeowner will decorate the space, enhanced by florals from The Blossom Shop. Next up is an impressive structure with a view of the Tay River (67 Harvey Street, Perth). The Blossom Shop will also provide florals to accent decor by the homeowner. "The first house built in the immediate neighbourhood circa 1956, this home impresses with is spacious and airy interior, enhanced by the light flooding through the sympathetically designed solarium," notes the website. Immaculate gardens, a vast collection of Canadian artwork and antiques will be on display as well. The final home on the tour is known as the Sobe Home, an example of sustainable urbanism, with an environmentally-friendly focus.

OTTAWA RIVER BEAUTY

This year, homes in Perth and Lanark will be on display and visitors can explore the homes over the weekend, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. both days. Lanark, once populated by lumber and textile industries, features a mix of heritage and new builds. Four homes in this community will be featured on the tour, including the wellknown Clyde Hall B&B (131 Mill Street, Lanark). This home bears a storied past, once owned by a lumber baron in the mid-1800s, that has been lovingly restored to an oasis for visitors. "The striking stone exterior has a commanding presence; the interior, traditional with a modern elegance has been painstakingly recreated to the exact specifications of the original home in every detail," according to the CFUW website. Clyde Hall's homeowners will decorate the lavish estate and interior florals will be provided by Gemmell's Flowers. One of the newer builds (936 Concession 8A in Lanark Highlands), boasts a rustic exterior, but inside cathedral ceilings of fir and cedar timbers from B.C. and a unique staircase aren't to be missed. Enjoy the views of the rural landscape via walls of windows on the 325-acre property. It will be enhanced by decor and florals by Ground Waves Homes

Helping seniors stay safe on the internet

During National Senior Safety Week, which takes place annually from November 6 to 12, the Canada Safety Council (CSC) shines a light on issues affecting Canadian seniors’ health, independence and safety. The CSC’s awareness campaign this year focuses on digital security for seniors. Working alongside Telus Wise, the organization is striving to provide seniors with relevant educational resources and programs. INTERNET USE BY SENIORS IS ON THE RISE The percentage of internet-users older than 65 is on the rise. According to the 2016 General Social Survey conducted by Statistics Canada, from 2013 to 2016 the number of internet users rose from 65 to 81 per cent among Canadians aged 65 to 74 and from 35 to 50 per cent among Canadians aged 75 and over. TELUS WISE SENIORS Internet safety for seniors is an increasingly important issue. Therefore, the CSC and Telus are collaborating to offer seniors free, in-store workshops on digital security. Information can be found on the Telus Wise Seniors webpage (wise.telus.com/wiseseniors).

Prevention Tips

• Keep your personal financial information safe. Never provide your bank account or credit card numbers over the phone or Internet, or by email. Do not share your personal identification numbers (PINs) or online banking passwords with anyone – not even family members or close friends. • If you shop online, shop from reputable retailers and use one credit card to pay for your purchases. This will make it easier to track your transactions and spot suspicious activity. Change this credit card every year. • Review your credit card and debit statements regularly. If something doesn’t look right, contact your financial institution right away. • Donate only to reputable charities that you know and trust. Do not donate money to an unknown charity. If you want to donate to specific charities, directly contact them to safely make a donation.

• If you think a deal sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away. • Never rush into a purchase because a salesperson is pressuring you. Take some time to think about the purchase. Be especially wary of apparent doorto-door repair or salespeople, for example, who appear friendly but insist on entering your home or pressuring you to make a purchase. Tell them you need several days to think about it,or choose not to open your door. • When you are out running errands, leave your extra credit and debit cards in a safe place at home. This will help protect you in case you lose your purse or wallet. • If you lose or misplace your debit or credit cards, contact your financial institution as soon as possible. • Order your free credit report at least once a year

AT AGE 85, PERTH'S FRANK MCLEAN RETIRES FROM INSURANCE BUSINESS

Thank you

has worked with McLean for 15 years. "He is a wealth of knowledge." What she admires about him, she said, is his worth ethic. "He is conscientious of all people and treats everyone with respect. He's involved with the community and I love working with him." Another colleague, Susan Crosbie, has worked with McLean some 16 years. She started with the company as the bookkeeper, and now is a licensed insurance specialist. "He's got lots of friends here, and is a great guy to work for," she said. "He's always calm and cracks jokes all the time. He's so witty." Crosbie added that "it's going to be a lot different around here" when McLean retires.

Thank you to all the taxpayers in Tay Valley Twp that supported me in every way during this years election campaign; the words of encouragement, the phone calls, the e-mails, the flowers and all that worked tirelessly behind the scenes. WE, the taxpayers in Tay Valley, won!!! We got a new Reeve and most of council. Looking forward to change, transparency and accountability.

MCLEAN INSURANCE

LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com At the end of the year, Frank McLean will close his office door at BrokerLink Insurance on Foster Street, Perth, after 46 years in business. Finally, it's time to retire, the 85-year-old said. "And do absolutely nothing." The founder of McLean Insurance has a quick wit, a calming demeanour, and a love of local history. "It will be very different around here," said Anne Tysick, an employee at BrokerLink who

McLean began his insurance business with Brian Noonan in 1972. Over the years, he bought 10 other brokerages. His son, Michael, bought the business from him 18 years ago, but the elder McLean stayed on, looking after the farm accounts. He still has a few files that he oversees. "I'm very fortunate," he said of his lengthy career. "I love the whole insurance business. I told my kids though, the only mistake I made was that when I bought 10, I wish I'd bought 40 more. That's how you grow the business." How has he kept his health? "I have no idea, I don't do anything. I played ball and hockey - I played all the sports. I never

sell - he said it was time," McLean said. "It's all about the timing." Michael said his father has made a successful career look easy with his work ethic, mental composure and street smarts for the job. He remembers the summer before his father started the insurance business. McLean took some time off work for the first time in his life, "to spend time with this family. That was the greatest summer of my life and I can still remember much of it today," Michael said. "He never complained running a business was his dream and he thrived in every entrepreneurial environment he ever placed himself into."

Michael said his father taught them what hard work looks like, but yet he always has time for family. Buying into McLean Insurance was the best thing, Michael said, that he ever did, and something for which he will always be grateful. "Working shoulder to shoulder with my dad for 15 years is one of the greatest joys in my life," Michael said. With the current owner, McLean had a deal to stay on another year, which was up in June. He agreed to a six-month extension. "That takes me to the end of December," McLean said. "It's time. My wife said I was foolish to retire because I have my health, I know what I'm doing. I said no, I'm going to retire. Ev-

erything is in order at home. I just want to relax. I don't care who offers me a job, I'm not going to take it. And I hope I live for five more years. That will take me to 90 and then to hell with it!" Michael said that he and his siblings count themselves as the lucky ones every day. "To grow up in front of such strong, value-based role models as my mother and father ... not every child is that fortunate." McLean thanks his staff over the years for their dedication to the team, and to the community, and clients for their patronage. Friends can drop into the BrokerLink office between Dec. 17 and 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. to offer McLean well wishes on his retirement.

LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com Matthew Adams (or Matthew Runaway as he's known on stage) is proud of his small town roots, growing up in Fallbrook on the family farm. He attended Sacred Heart Elementary School in Lanark, and then St. John Catholic High School in Perth. Adams has recently dropped his first solo country music video, "Small Town Pride," which reflects on his time in this area. It's got a great story, a Florida Georgia Line feel with a bit of a rock jam. All these influences have played a part in his life. "I'd really just like peo-

ple to get to know me! 'Small Town Pride' is a reflection of how I viewed growing up in Perth. I can't wait to release more music soon and show people who I am," he said in an email exchange with The Perth Courier from Nashville. Adams said he started listing to the great rock music of the '80s, thanks to his mother, Debbie Adams. " ... she had a good ear for music. Naturally that's what I wanted to start playing," he said. "As time went on my musical spectrum grew and I was listening to anything from hard rock to classic country." He said he chose the country route because it was something he felt he always wanted to do. "But all the opportuni-

ties I had forwarded to me were not (country). I experienced a bit of success playing lead guitar in my former band Aspire. We were lucky enough to tour North America with some pretty awesome bands and most importantly, made life friends and learned about the music industry," he said. Eventually, though Aspire split, and band members went their separate ways, Adams took it all in stride. He viewed it as an opportunity to pursue what he always wanted to do - write, perform and sing country music. "I was always pulled to country music because it's a genre of music that allows you to tell your story and be very personal with your

He's currently recording more music, but hopes to be touring - including back home. "Funny enough I've actually never got to play a show in Perth; I hope that changes soon." His musical influences

include Jake Owen, FGL, Chris Lane, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams and Brantley Gilbert. "Growing up I always looked up to my mother, my uncles Herb, Ray, Kenny, and Brett, and grandmother Phyllis Adams. They taught me about hard work on the family farm in Fallbrook."

SMALL TOWN PRIDE SPEAKS TO GROWING UP IN LANARK COUNTY FOR RUNAWAY MUSICIAN

He also credits two favourite teachers. "I've had many amazing teachers but the two who really formed me into the musician I am were Mike McPherson and Jim Ryan. I can't thank Mike enough for being more than just a guitar teacher! He has coached me though the music industry since day one and still is involved with decisions made to this day! Jim was my music teacher in high school and always gave me the tough love I needed. " Although music takes up most of his time, he does enjoy a Blue Jays game, and working on cars. He gets much enjoyment from his red SS Camaro. Adams appreciates the hometown support, love and encouragement. "It's been such an amazing journey and if y'all see me around town don't hesitate to stop me and say hi." He has a big social media presence on Instagram and Twitter. He also has a Facebook page.

Now is the time when most property owners consider the closure and winterizing of their cottages for the season. Cottages and seasonal homes are most vulnerable to thieves from the week following Thanksgiving to the weeks prior to Victoria Day, especially if the owners are not using them for fall, win-

ter or spring getaways. The OPP would like to assist cottage owners with some crime prevention tips to keep in mind as you close up the cottage. Let's work together as a community to find the root cause of thefts from cottages with the goal of preventing these crimes from occurring in the first place.

Some tips to consider: • Pack up all food and alcohol and remove from the cottage. • Do not leave firearms or weapons at the cottage. • Trim trees and shrubs so that doors and windows are visible from the roadway. • Secure your windows

and doors - close window curtains or blinds and put up shutters. • Take your valuables with you - electronics, personal items, tools, etc. • Check around your property for objects that could be used to break into your property . • Ensure that contact (key holder) information is

Garner said the board put out a notice to club members to collect used tennis balls and racquets and raised $1,000 from member donations and from the club's savings. The two $500 cheques and used equipment packages were recently delivered to the physical education department heads and tennis coaches at both schools.

SWERDFAGER, Sandra June

November 9, 1941October 28, 2018 Sandra passed away, unexpectedly, in her sleep, on Sunday. She was the beloved daughter of the late Ken and the late June Swerdfager, the treasured sister of John Swerdfager (the late Sandy) and Melinda Glew (Tom), and the dear aunt of Wendy Swerdfager (Lee Roy). Sandra was a truly unique, creative and funny woman. She loved to make everyone laugh and had a very kind heart. She taught us all a lot about life. She was so loved and will be greatly missed by all of us. She has a special place in our hearts. Sandra lived at Rideau Regional Centre for over 50 years. She was a friend to everyone. She enjoyed many activities and outings especially singing in the choir and going to church. She had wonderful care and was very happy there. When RRC closed Sandra was very fortunate to find a home at Lera with The Mills Community Support along with two of her very close friends. She was much loved by all the staff and residents there even when she was feisty. They were truly a family and she loved all of them. Last year she moved to Hwy. 43, also with The Mills, and found the same kind and compassionate care there. I want to thank Julie and all the other staff of angels at both Lera and Hwy. 43 for their dedication and kindness in taking such wonderful care of Sandra. She was so very lucky to have all of them and she loved them all. We love them too. Sandra will be laid to rest beside her parents in a private family ceremony. A celebration of her life will be held at her home in late November. For those wishing to, a donation to Mills Community Support would be greatly appreciated.

FIELDING 2x44 In memory of my grandmother, Elizabeth who passed away “50” years ago, November 10, 1968. If I could visit heaven even for a day, Maybe for a moment the pain would go away. I’d put my arms around you and whisper words so true, That living life without you, is the hardest thing to do. No matter how I spend my days, No matter what I do, No mornings or evenings, When I don’t think of you. Fifty years have passed dear Gran, But my memories of you are always on my mind. Sitting in the rocker, sipping tea loaded with sugar, Threading needles with different colors of thread. Waking up to my glass of water in the morning, The boiled egg for breakfast, a piece of eggshell always in my bowl. So many loving moments, Gran. When I think of you often, my tears fall! I deeply loved you, and miss you so so much! Forever and ever your granddaughter, Karen P.S. Gran, I’m now a Grammie too! I have three beautiful grandbabies: “Allison, Dane and Frank”. You would have loved them so much Gran! “Sending hugs to heaven”

We’ve so many precious memories, To last our whole life through, Each one of them reminders, Of how much we’re missing you. Forever loved and missed Doug ~ Mom/Grandma What is home without a mother?

But all we can do dear mother, Is go and tend your grave, And leave behind tokens of love, To the best mother God ever made.

IN MEMORIAM MUNRO, Florence In loving memory of a dear mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother, who passed away October 31, 2007. We are sad within our memory; Lonely are our hearts today; For the one we loved so dearly; Has forever been called away. We think of you in silence; No eye may see us weep; But many silent tears are shed; When others are asleep. As we look upon your picture; Sweet memories we recall; Of a face so full of sunshine; A smile for one and all. Though your smile has gone forever; And your hand we cannot tough; We shall never lose sweet memories; Of the one we loved so much. Always remembered and forever loved, The Family

JEFF MAGUIRE ENCOURAGES READERS TO TAKE PART IN A LOCAL SERVICE JEFF MAGUIRE Column

This Sunday, Nov. 11, is Remembrance Day and as usual my wife and I will join the crowd at the cenotaph in our adopted hometown of Carleton Place to remember the dead from two world wars and the Korean conflict. It is also a good opportunity to remember and thank all Canada's military veterans. That includes everyone who has served our country during times of war or those who have served and those who have died in Canadian missions aimed at securing what is clearly a very elusive goal peace! This Nov. 11 is special because we will also be marking the centennial of the end of the First World War, on Nov. 11, 1918. More than 60,000 Canadians and Newfoundlanders (Newfoundland didn't officially join Canada until 1949) perished in what, at the time, was called "the war to end all wars." Clearly things haven't quite worked out that way!

But on that Monday, 100 years ago this weekend, church bells rang out spontaneously across Canada as people celebrated the end of a bloody, four year conflict which claimed the lives of millions worldwide. The war also resulted in a further 172,000 Canadians being wounded. Countless others in our country suffered greatly as a result of the war, especially those whose loved ones were killed or injured during the fighting. This Sunday, through the efforts of the Royal Canadian Legion, Canada's largest veterans' organization along with churches, community councils and groups from coast-to-coast, church bells will ring 100 times in villages, towns and cities nation-wide to help the nation remember. Appropriately the national event has been dubbed "Bells of Peace." In Carleton Place additional Remembrance Day plans include songs performed by a choir during the traditional morning ceremonies and a tribute to local native and flying ace Captain Arthur "Roy" Brown. He is the Allied pilot who shot down famed German flyer Baron Manfred von Richthofen (the war's highest scoring fighter pilot with 80 "victories") on April 21, 1918. Every community has a slightly different plan although church bells will be rung in each case. In our

NOVEMBER 11 IS A GOOD TIME TO PRAY FOR PEACE

town the bell ringing will be heralded by the sirens of police and fire units which will sound for 30 seconds before the bells toll. Also included in the multifaceted ceremony of remembrance, relatives of the 47 Carleton Place residents who died during WW I will ring hand bells at the Cenotaph while the church bells sound. Communities across the country have similar plans for this very special day including of course the Bells of Peace initiative. I think it should be noted that nearly 650,000 Canadians served the country and the British Empire during what is often called "the Great War." In addition hundreds of thousands of men and women supported the effort through their work in war industry or other necessary activities related to the conflict. That is significant because, in 1918 for example, Canada was a relatively small country in terms of population with just over eight million residents. By comparison more than 37 million people currently call Canada home! Today, considering what is happening in our modern world, peace seems like a pipe dream. To me it's more elusive than ever. But this Sunday, Remembrance Day 2018 and the 100th anniversary of a distant war, we have an opportunity to listen to the Bells of Peace and pray that, somehow, peace will come to our topsy-turvy world!

BELLS WILL BE RINGING NOV. 18 AT ST. PAUL'S UNITED CHURCH Does the date Nov. 18 "ring a bell"? If it does not, by the time you read to the end of this article, it will. On that date, The Bells of St. Paul's handbell choir, under the direction of Ann McMahon, will be teaming up with the Lanark Offbeats, under the direction of Margo Smith, to present a concert which will be sure to please the eye, the ear and the emotions. Budding cellist Hilary Hodgins will also be a featured soloist and flutist Helen Mogford will join the bells in one number. The Bells of St. Paul's comprises twelve ringers playing both handbells and hand chimes. The three-plus octave hand bells have been part of the Perth and St. Paul's music scene for nearly 26 years and recently have expanded to include a lower octave of bells and a complete set of hand chimes to create a sonorous and sublime sound! Some pieces which will be played will be selections from Gershwin, and an arrangement of "You Raise Me Up" for Bells, and the ever popular "What a Wonderful World". The Lanark Offbeats boasts a jazz sound created by twenty auditioned voices accompanied by a four-piece combo. They have been performing throughout Lanark County and beyond for 3 years. Their program will include pieces such as "A Touch of Christmas", "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and "Love Is Here to Stay". Hilary Hodgins, a student of Sarah Loten, grew up in Perth, taking part in music programs both at Stewart School and P.D.C.I. as well as playing in the Kingston Youth Symphony. She plays at weddings and recently was in the orchestra of the Perth Community Choir production of" Mary Poppins". All will perform in the acoustically beautiful space in the recently renovated and completely accessible St. Paul's sanctuary on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 3 p.m., 25 Gore St. W. Perth. A free-will offering will be accepted at the door. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon before the season of Advent and Christmas is upon us! For more information visit www.stpaulsperth.ca.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. 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!
