Fill Empty Bowls

Festival of the Maples Saturday Saturday, during the Festival of the Maples in Perth, local restaurants are converging with three community food organizations – The Table Community Food Centre, YAK Youth Centre and the local school’s breakfast program, Food for Thought to raise money for those in need in the community. Money donated to the cause will be matched by a new sponsor this year, TD Canada Trust. This event has raised $175,000 since 2002 when

the late Jackie Seaton, local potter, started the event 13 years ago. Now potters from MERA, along with friends of Seaton’s are crafting some 600-plus bowls for the Empty Bowls project. Last weekend, Foodsmiths held their annual fundraiser at the grocery store where half of those bowls were sold for a $20 donation, filled with minestrone soup, made on site. The rest of the bowls are going this weekend during the Festival of the Maples.

Union mobilizer warns provincial strike could be on way and the power plant scandal. “We didn’t make this mess, but we’re the ones they’re going to make pay for it…we will see members lost because of this,” Hanson said. He called on the province to “deal reasonably with the unions. We only want what is fair.” While Premier Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals were returned to office with a majority government last June, partially because of then-Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak announcing that he would fire thousands of civil servants if he became premier, Hanson feels that the job cuts are coming regardless – Wynne, unlike Hudak, simply did not announce the cuts. “Red tie, blue tie, I don’t think it made on little bit of difference,” he said. Anne Leach, president of OPSEU local 437, said that OPSEU members work not only in the local Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital, but also provincial workplaces as diverse at the parole office, Ministry of Natural Resources, community and protective services, and others. “We’re not an ivory tower bunch,” said Leach. “We work

here, we live here.” Another concern for the protesters, who later marched down Elmsley Street North, past the Memorial Centre, the Smiths Falls hospital, and Cornelia Court, was

about privatization. Treidlinger charged that the Wynne Liberals want to make it “simpler and easier to privatize,” but he shot back that the public service “can do it cheaper and better…(but)

they will find a way to privatize anything.” He pointed to the Ontario Disability Support Program, which he said had only 3.6 per cent administrative costs in 2011-12, “to run a very confusing, complex system.”

A union protest last week heard that increasing privatization and upcoming labour disagreements with the provincial government could lead to a strike. “We’re heading towards a strike,” warned Ben Treidlinger, a mobilizer for OPSEU (Ontario Public Service Employees Union), during a protest in front of the Ontario parole and probation office in Smiths Falls on Thursday, April 16. OPSEU is in the midst of bargaining with the provincial government, and, by their estimation, it is not going well. The union first met with the province last November, coming up with an offer that, according to Treidlinger, had “60 takeaways, zero enlargements,” and a wage freeze, as well as a five per cent cut to the pay of new hires. There would also be cuts to benefits and sick pay. “We basically said no to the offer,” said Treidlinger, standing in the parking lot off of Glen Avenue, near one of Smiths Falls’ major intersections at Elmsley Street North and Beckwith Street North. A

strike vote was held in January which won the approval of membership – after which the province essentially “threw (the) same offer on the table. They are forcing the issue. We are looking at give and take. They take and we give.” John Hanson, president of OPSEU local 416, noted that as much as 30 per cent of Smiths Falls’ working population was employed in the public service, and that he is seeing “all of the good jobs cut and slashed… taken away and privatized.” And, once they are privatized, “it all ends up in a corporate pocket.” Another reason for the protest was to fight what the union members present felt was misrepresentation in the media. “We’re not paid the big wages like people say (we are),” said Hanson. “We’ve been so vilified in the press.” While he works in Ottawa himself, at Algonquin College, in communities throughout eastern Ontario, “we are part of your community,” said Hanson. “We’re the volunteers in the community. We’re not the ones that wasted billions,” in various scandals like eHealth and the Ornge air ambulance

Kemptville medical team heading to Africa on mission May 6 Ashley Kulp

akulp@perfprint.ca

Everyone deserves access to medical care and that’s exactly what a local group from Rideau Crossing Family Health Centre will provide over a two-week period in Africa this May. Seven health professionals from the health centre: Lisa LaCombe, Donna Sarrazin, Rebecca Everett, Megan Sarrazin, Kelcy DePooter, Dr. Jonathan Rathwell and Dr. Tara McCallan; along with Kemptville District Hospital emergency room doctor, Dr. Rehana Rouf, will head to Ukerewe, Tanzania on a medical mission May 6 to 24. The team will join others from across the region on the trip, made possible through the Canada Africa Community Health Alliance (CACHA), an Ottawa-based non-governmental organization. In a final push to raise funds for the

mission, the group held a fundraising garage sale April 18 at the health centre, located at the entrance to the eQuinelle community. According to LaCombe, administrative co-ordinator at the Rideau Crossing Family Health Centre, each attendee must fundraise the costs of the trip (approximately $5,200). This covers airfare, as well as other mission-related expenses, including additional projects and hospital admissions and surgeries for Ukerewe residents. “It’s my first experience so I’m hoping we make a difference,” LaCombe noted. “Our goal is ideally to be able to go back every 18 months and really do whatever we can.” Funds have been raised over the last year through the grand opening celebration of Rideau Crossing and a dance/silent auction this past February that raised $7,000 for the cause. LaCombe indicated the community

has been supportive and many donated items for the April 18 sale, which included a bake table and barbecue. Armed each with a big bin of medical supplies, LaCombe said each day the team will help out different communities on the island of Ukerewe. Over the two weeks, the group could help out up from 3,500 to 4,500 people and give out more than 14,000 prescriptions. “Every day we will load up in a

caravan and be driven out into the remote areas of Africa and provide pop-up clinics for residents,” she explained. “In the villages, people will line up and we’ll put them through and assess their medical situation.” LaCombe said the need for medical care in these remote areas is critical. “They (Ukerewe) have no medical care and it is four hours from the mainland of Tanzania,” she noted. “They rely on the people who come

and in each village, you can see 300 or more people line up. We will see however many we can and the others we can’t, will wait another six months for the next mission to arrive.” The team is there to provide critical medical care, but the one free weekend they have, LaCombe said will be used to explore the culture. To support the medical mission, visit www.cacha.ca or www.rideaucrossingfhc.ca to make a donation.

Silent auction items sought for MVFN Spring Gathering Looking for contributions of items for a silent auction to be held at the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) Spring Gathering dinner and talk, May 21.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County’s 3M Golf for the Kids May 30 Happy to see the sunshine? After such a long winter, plan to get out on the golf course for a good cause. Mapleview Golf & Country Club in Perth will once again be the location for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County annual golf tournament on May 30 to raise funds for local mentoring programs. 3M Perth is once again the title sponsor, supporting the local agency and their goal of ensuring that “every child in Lanark County that needs a mentor has a mentor.” The fun-filled day is a shot gun start and the $85 registration fee includes a continental breakfast, barbecued

lunch, a cart and 18 holes. Register early and save $5. There is a chance to bid on West Jet tickets on the silent auction table among many other great finds. Sponsorships help increase the bottom line for the agency, and there are many options available, including hole sponsors, food sponsors, and more. It is great visibility for local businesses, and great support for an agency helping kids right here at home. Mentoring programs are about prevention and building resilience. The research indicates that by providing children and youth with positive role models, mentoring programs demon-

strate to them that they are valued, and that they possess the strength to overcome the obstacles they will undoubtedly face as they grow older. Mentoring also plays an important role in the future direction a child will decide to take later on in life, paving the way to a future full of possibilities. Children who have been in mentoring programs see real, positive change. The children involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters go on to graduate from high school at a rate of 20 per cent higher than the national average. Seventy-eight per cent of those children who came from a social assistance background no longer rely on this

Supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters can have big results. It can be as simple as a game of golf. For more information about the tournament, or about other ways to get involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County, please call 613-283-0570 or visit their website at www.bigbrothersbigsisterslanark.ca.

form of income and a disproportionately high number of former Littles graduate from college or university compared to others in their age group. On the other hand, children who are denied the benefit of a positive role model are children who will continue to be deemed “at risk”, and not children “on the brink of success.”

Your baby is born…now what? Where should your baby be in the first hour after birth? Skin-to-skin? Absolutely… With the birth of your baby, their transition to life outside the womb begins. The best place for babies to learn about their new world is on the mother’s chest with skin contact. On your chest your baby’s senses will be stimulated by touch, sight, sound, smell and taste. It is a safe, warm place for mother and baby to bond, provide comfort and begin to learn baby’s early ways to tell you “I’m

hungry”. In this first hour it is a time to slow down, there is no rush…your baby is here…enjoy holding your baby…enjoy touching and smelling your baby… enjoy knowing you are helping your baby’s heartbeat, breathing and blood sugar stabilize and to stay warm – all with your touch. You are a parent and welcome to the first hour. “The health unit encourages all expectant families to make skin-to-skin part of their birth plan,” says public health nurse, Tanis Brown. Skin-to-skin time with your baby is

an important first step.

Green light given for beer to be sold in grocery stores throughout Ontario value of assets and that ensure that every public dollar is at work for the people of Ontario — we are positioning our province to thrive, long into the future.” Expanding the sale of beer by up to 450 more locations is roughly equal to the existing number of Beer Store outlets and is in addition to the more than 600 LCBO stores across the province. Ontario is entering into a new Beer Framework Agreement with the owners of the Beer Store that will open up ownership to small brewers; create a new craft category to better profile craft beer; extend the Ontario Deposit Return Program beyond 2017; and generate an additional $100 million a year in revenues for the province, phased in over four years. The government intends to introduce legislation that would, if passed, permit these changes to be implemented. The industry’s largest brewers have separately committed to comply with the government’s request that they cap price increases to inflation for some of their most popular beer products until May 2017, unless there are material changes to the industry. The government will continue to uphold the principles of social responsibility by maintaining strict controls over how beer is sold in these new locations. The province will ensure the sale of alcohol is restricted to set hours, is in a designated section of each store, and that all staff selling alcohol in grocery stores are properly certified and fully trained to ensure Ontario’s standards for social responsibility are always met.

performance and generate value for Ontarians, the Ontario government intends to broaden ownership of Hydro One through an initial public offering. Following the IPO, the Ontario government would be the largest shareholder and, by law, no other shareholder or group of shareholders would be permitted to own more than 10 per cent. As a result the government would retain de facto control. The opportunity to buy into Hydro One would be made available in stages in order to maximize return to taxpayers. As is currently the case, Hydro One would have no role in setting rates. Rates would continue to be set by the independent Ontario Energy Board (OEB). The government also intends to strengthen the regulatory powers of the OEB to protect ratepayers and investigate complaints. The province intends to proceed with a merger of Hydro One Brampton with Enersource, PowerStream and Horizon Utilities. The merger of these strongperforming utilities will create the second-largest electricity distributor in Ontario and allow for the new, larger company to use its collective resources to deliver a favourable impact on rates, more efficient services and innovative technologies for customers. The merger will also help catalyze Local Distribution Company consolidation for the benefit of ratepayers. The government intends to introduce legislation this spring that would, if passed, guarantee that net proceeds from the ownership changes to Hydro One and any net proceeds from the merger will go Province to sell off portion of to the Trillium Trust and be used Hydro One to finance transit, transportation In order to strengthen long-term and other priority infrastructure

projects across the province. Maximizing the value of these assets is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives and building a secure retirement savings plan. “(This) announcement will make the electricity system more effective. It will allow Hydro One to become a fully modernized company that is highly effective and still carefully regulated. It will give ordinary Ontarians the chance to invest in a great asset. And it will help government invest in infrastructure right across Ontario,” said Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Energy. Quick facts • Ontarians will pay the same price for the same beer, regardless of where is it sold. Under Ontario’s uniform pricing policy, the beer price that is set by the brewer is the price the consumer pays, whether the product is sold in the LCBO, the Beer Store, the brewer’s own on-site store, or, now, in a grocery store. Higher-than-anticipated revenues from assets mean there will be an additional $2.6 billion in Moving Ontario Forward funding available — for a total of $31.5 billion in dedicated funds available over 10 years. • The Moving Ontario Forward plan is expected to support more than 20,000 jobs per year, on average, in construction and related industries. • The LCBO will pilot the sale of 12-packs of beer in 10 stores across the province.

Ontario is moving ahead with its plan to unlock the value of certain public assets to help support unprecedented investments in transit, transportation and other priority infrastructure projects through the Moving Ontario Forward plan. This represents the largest infrastructure investment in Ontario’s history. In the biggest change since the repeal of prohibition, Ontario is expanding beer sales to up to an additional 450 locations across the province to give Ontarians more convenience and choice, while maintaining a strong commitment to social responsibility. “Ontario consumers have asked for more convenience, wider distribution and greater competition in the purchase of beer and alcohol beverages. We have listened and are modernizing the system to enhance delivery and selection at competitive prices while ensuring our commitment to social responsibility, said Charles Souza, Minister of Finance. The province will also broaden the ownership of Hydro One to create lasting public benefits and ongoing public protections. These changes, following recommendations from the Premier’s Advisory Council on Government Assets, chaired by Ed Clark, will strengthen the economy, create thousands of jobs and generate $4 billion that would be set aside for infrastructure investments. “These changes will strengthen our economy, create thousands of jobs and generate $4 billion for investment in infrastructure projects — representing the largest infrastructure investment in Ontario’s history,” said Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne. “By making smart business decisions now — decisions that unlock the

s local residents are being asked to support the Canadian Cancer Society during the Daffodil Month national fundraising campaign, we note the upcoming Relay for Life events planned for Almonte June 5 at Gemmill Park and June 13 in Smiths Falls at the Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute track. Dozens of teams take part in those annual overnight events in support of the ongoing fight against a disease that takes many forms and affects so many of us. Students and staff at St. John Catholic High School in Perth, as well as St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville have also been doing a great job by hosting their own Relay for Life events over the past several years. After lying dormant since 2003, St. Michael’s resurrected their run in September 2011 and are set to host it once again this year on May 22 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. They announced their intentions to raise $35,000 for cancer research during their Relay for Life kick-off at the school last week. St. John’s are old pros at the Relay for Life, marking 13 years hosting the event

at the school. Their fundraiser will also take place May 22 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., with a $50,000 goal. Last year, the school community and 320 participants were able to raise $52,000 over the 12-hour relay. Even more impressive is the fact that over the past 13 years, the combined total raised for the Canadian Cancer Society by St. John’s is $577,000. This event underscores the importance of celebrating life and supporting those who struggle to overcome cancer and remembering others who lost their battles with the disease. So in addition to buying and wearing daffodil pins and making donations to the society, local residents can support the cancer society by collecting pledges and taking part in one of the Relay for Life events in the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville area this spring or making a pledge on behalf of someone who is getting involved. The student-led efforts at St. Michael’s and St. John’s and many other high schools in Canada show that people of all ages have a role to play in these major community endeavours.

Seed ordering was one exciting yearly tradition for Mary and the family By the time Mother had written out her order on the last sheet of the Steele-Briggs seed catalogue, the pages were practically in shreds after many hours of pouring over the choices she would make.

with a firm nod of her head. “Fat chance,” Father would say from his place near the Findlay Oval. From the day the little catalogue arrived, it rarely left the end of the old pine table in the kitchen. Mother liked nothing better than to thumb through its pages, and with a pencil put an ‘X’ beside what she thought she might order. Seeds for tomatoes, cucumbers and beans seemed to interest her the most, while pictures of big green watermelons kept me captive, and I hoped with all my heart that Mother would put a pencil mark beside the picture that took most of one page. Finally, she would have made her choices. The form was filled in from the back of the catalogue and the order sent off in the mail in an envelope with a

Carbon pricing discussions begin DEAR EDITOR: Just a week ahead of Earth Day celebrations, most of Canada’s Premiers met in Quebec City to discuss climate action and a national energy strategy.

On April 11, I marched with more than 25,000 people in the Act on Climate march in Quebec

City. This turnout is huge, much greater than organizers hoped. Marchers called on the premiers to take action on the climate crisis and protested the planned Energy East pipeline, which would put waterways in eastern Canada at risk. Canada is seriously lagging on climate. Canada is only eight per cent of the way towards meeting our rather weak greenhouse gas emissions

box would be. Sometimes it would come from Montreal, and sometimes all they way from out west...another miracle as far as I was concerned. Of course, Mother would have to have the money in her hand to pay for the seeds, because the box would come to us C.O.D. Mother knew how much I loved seeing the box of seeds and so the day it would arrive, she wouldn’t open it until after supper and I was allowed to get the scissors out of the sewing machine drawer and cut the strings and open the box. And there would be all those beautiful packets of seeds! Just like the pictures in the catalogue. I would line them up on the table after the kitchen had been redded up and stand them up against a drinking glass, all in order, so that I could see them better. And everything was in vivid colours. The tomatoes were the brightest red, and the cucumbers vivid green. I would take a packet over to show Father sitting beside the Findlay Oval and he would look it over, make a grunting sound without taking his pipe out of his mouth and that would be it. And

sometime during the evening, he would again say the very same seeds could be bought right down the road at Briscoe’s General Store...and you wouldn’t have had to waste three cents on a stamp either. But nothing could dampen my joy of playing with those crisp little packets of seeds. Soon Mother would plant them in little wood boxes Father had made years before and they would sit in the kitchen until they sprouted and it was time to move them to the garden. I watched them daily and when the first spot of green appeared, I was ecstatic. I’m not sure if I was more excited about the actual growth of the plants, or marveling again at the fact that by simply sitting down at the kitchen table and sending off an order to some far away city, a parcel would arrive. And that parcel in due course would turn into an ample garden and feed us for months to come. Yes, a miracle indeed. All for the cost of a three-cent stamp!

The people of Ontario now have another way to report a minor crime. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding the public about their online reporting system as an alternative to having an officer attend a scene for a minor incident. Citizen Self Reporting (CSR) has rolled out across the province and the OPP is proud to offer this

simple and efficient new system as a means of reporting certain minor incidents and crimes. The OPP’s Citizen Self Reporting is an easy to use Internet reporting tool that can be accessed from a computer or mobile device and sent directly to the OPP anywhere, anytime. This online reporting system will al-

low the public to report specific crimes such as lost property, stolen license plates, theft from vehicles, driving complaints, and property damage without an officer having to be dispatched to the scene, provided there are no suspects, injuries or the incident is not an emergency. Go to opp.ca for more information.

LETTER targets, with no plans to achieve them. So far it has been the provinces that have taken the most action but until now there has been no co-ordinated effort. The revenue neutral carbon tax in BC that began in 2008 has been called the most effective carbon pricing mechanism in the world. It has significantly reduced the use of fossil fuels in BC while the economy has remained healthy. BC Premier Christy Clark missed the premiers’ meeting because she was in New York City to talk about the successful carbon tax. Kudos to Ontario for being the first jurisdiction in North America to close all of its coal fired generating stations thus significantly improving air quality. Economic experts say that the single most effective policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is to put a price on carbon. Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission’s report, “The Way Forward”, released on April 7, compared the economic impact, as measured by growth in gross domestic product (GDP), that there would be in 2020 if regulation or market-based carbon pricing were used to manage carbon pollution and we were to meet our current greenhouse gas reduction targets. The marketbased carbon pricing mechanism could be either a well-designed cap and trade or an efficient carbon fee (a.k.a. tax or levy). The result: GDP in 2020 is approximately 3.8 per cent better under carbon pricing than it is under a regulatory approach. Ontario is now taking bold action to put a price on carbon by joining Quebec and California in a cap and trade scheme. However the design and implementation will be crucial to the success of the system. Making it revenue neutral, not allowing any industry

Accept the baton – Be part of Relay For Life 2015 in Smiths Falls The Canadian Cancer Society is making some bold changes to its Relay For Life event this year. To help welcome more families and people, the event on Saturday, June 13 will feature a shorter event duration, running from 6 p.m. to midnight. Participants can join the event as individuals, or as part of a team of friends, relatives or coworkers. “This year’s new format will still encompass all of the amazing aspects that people love about Relay but will be packed into a six-hour event,” says Leanne Waddell, manager of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Lanark, Leeds & Grenville community office. “No matter where you live, cancer touches all of

our lives. We are excited to evolve and strengthen our signature fundraiser in order to raise more money to fight back against the disease,” she adds. Changes have been made in order to make the event more accessible for individuals and families who are volunteering and participating in the Relay, including shifting the event to the Saturday instead of Friday. “A few other communities piloted some of these changes last year with great success,” says Waddell. “Our local community crew of dedicated volunteers are working hard to make sure participants experience the same feelings of community and support that

have made it such a powerful event for the past 15 years.” Regular physical activity helps protect against cancer. It’s also one of the best ways to stay at a healthy body weight, which reduces a person’s risk of cancer. It is for these reasons that the Society is reintroducing Relay batons to the event and encouraging Relay For Life participants to set a distance goal for the event (e.g. one to 10 KM) on an individual or team basis. Pre-event training walk sessions will be offered to participants and led by volunteer walk leaders. To help event participants meet or exceed a fundraising goal of $150, the

society will also provide motivational participant coaching to all registrants. Relay For Life is the Canadian Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser. In 2014, Relay For Life events in Lanark, Leeds & Grenville raised over $285,000. Money raised through Relay For Life helps patients and their families in our community. Donations fund life-saving research, support services, and other important work so that someday no Canadian will fear the word cancer. “The magic of Relay will return again this year, and we are anticipating a very fun event!” says Waddell. “We are excited to see everyone back at this year’s event and to hear feedback

on the new format.” For more information, please call 613-267-1058 or visit relayforlifeontario.ca to register today. About the Canadian Cancer Society The Canadian Cancer Society is a national community-based organization dedicated to preventing cancer, saving lives and supporting people living with cancer through research funding, services and advocacy. We are Canada’s largest charity fighting all types of cancer and leading authority on cancer statistics and information. To learn more, call 1 888 939-3333 or visit cancer.ca.

What keeps Mississippi Mudds members coming back time and again What’s it like doing amateur theatre? We asked a number of experienced Mississippi Mudds members, who are currently in rehearsal for the next production – the Broadway hit retelling of the story of the Princess and the Pea called Once Upon a Mattress – why they enjoy it so much, and what keeps them coming back. Angela Sotiropoulos, who plays Lady Beatrice, has been involved with the Mudds for 21

years, and has taken on a variety of different jobs over this time. “Having amateur theatre as one of my extracurricular activities has allowed me to develop a lot of different skills,” she says. “I’ve been an actor, a singer, and a dancer. I’ve worked backstage, as well – in stage management, costumes, set building and painting – as well as front of house.” She jokes, “Hang around here long enough, you get a shot at everything!” The opportunities for selfgrowth are another benefit that

long-time members point out. Michele Eno states, “I started out in the chorus a few years ago, and now I’m playing the villain, the Evil Queen! “When you’re part of a group that takes a story and songs — starting with just the words and notes on the page – and turns them into a successful stage production, your confidence goes through the roof. It’s helped me a lot.” Robert Horne, a longtime member who is playing the poor henpecked King in this show,

puts it another way. “Of course it’s a lot of fun to put on a show, but it can also be hard work. Doing something like this means that you have to develop a lot of self-discipline and manage your time, not only in the rehearsal hall, but also at home: learning the lines and the songs, and working out your character and the details of your stage performance. Developing the ability to do that boosts your self confidence, as well,” he says. And of course there are the lifelong friendships that develop

over the course of putting on a show. “You get a lot of support from all the cast and crew around you,” says Trish Smith, who plays the Minstrel. “Those people are a gift – a diverse social network that provides mutual support on and off the stage. And that gives you the confidence to put in the effort and do it again.” Of course, to really see the proof of all of this, you’ll have to come out and see the show. Once Upon A Mattress, by the

Mississippi Mudds of Carleton Place, will be presented at the Carleton Place Town Hall Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 26, Saturday, April 27, Thursday, April 30, Friday, May 1, and Saturday, May 2. There will also be a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee performance on April 28. Tickets are available at Reads Book Shop at 135 Bridge St., 613-257-7323 or at the door. Visit mississippimudds.ca.

Indie-film power trio with Perth roots set sights on million-dollar film deal Staff

With the recent announcement of the CineCoup Accelerator challenge, Waterloo, Ont. filmmaking trio Adrian Konstant, Jason Green and Michael Wurtz are hoping you never look at a mailbox the same way again. Production has started in the KW area on their upcoming action-comedy, “Postmen� a fresh new look at the hero genre. The CineCoup Film Accelerator is a disruptive studio model for indie filmmakers to develop, market and produce feature films. Filmmaking teams apply to CineCoup with a movie trailer then advance, over a 12-week period, through a gamified selection funnel using CineCoup’s social web platform. In the end they could be one of the optioned (up to 10) projects or be the

big winner to be greenlit for production with (up to) $1 million in production financing and a release in Cineplex Theatres. The Perth connection is that both Wurtz and Green are graduates of Perth and District Collegiate Institute. “We’re pretty excited about this project and even if we land in the top five that’s still a huge deal for us,� Wurtz said. The story Their story focuses on the postal carrier. In fact, the next caped crusader could be your postal worker, they said. A year after a roadside bomb takes his leg, Luke Walker is ready to join the world of working stiffs in his tiny hometown. Assuming the role of a junior postal worker, Walker is thrust into

a world of danger and discovers that the American postal carriers are in fact an ultra-secret branch of civil service that truly quiet anything that goes bump in the night. Under the grizzled tutelage of his veteran training manager, Cliff, he stumbles into a web of intrigue and finds himself seemingly out-matched, out gunned and out-legged as he battles a Swiss plot to take over the world. Discover the secret world of The Postmen!

“You will never look at a mailbox the same way again,� the trio promises. Green adds: “It’s a fair bit of funny, in a Lethal Weapon way.� Green and Wurtz grew up in the area got into filming and began “just messing around with it� in high school. The trio cruised through the top 60 and now need help to make it to the top 30. “Voting has been going really well,� Wurtz said. “Our poster was voted number one and that was great.�

The trio is looking for help now with voting for the top 30, which will conclude Friday April 24 at 9 p.m. To view the trailer, visit www.cinecoup.com/postmen/trailer.

Kids, puddles and mud enduring spring tradition Put more spring

Reflections JEFF MAGUIRE

river runs through it. The Mississippi River no less and it’s a beauty. We are so fortunate to have the river! And as I tell my Tennessee friends, they’re lucky we let them borrow the name for one of their rivers. Jerry and I were talking one day and the subject of spring and the river came up. Jerry recalls that as a youngster he, his pals and every kid in Carleton Place were drawn to the river every spring. The Mississippi was a magnet. Spring tradition As the snow melted and the river rose children flocked to the river banks to play. Dropping a stick, or even better a little homemade boat of some kind, into the shallows and watching it take off offered a special thrill. Something you can’t put a price on. “And our parents weren’t worried,� Jerry remembers. “Sure, we were all warned to be careful along the river. But we respected the fast water!� He doesn’t recall any serious incidents involving children of his acquaintance. And in those days Carleton Place was less than half the size it is today. Everybody knew everyone else. “The river was a special place for us kids,� Jerry says. “It’s very different now. You just don’t see that (kids playing along the river bank) any more. “Maybe people are too scared to let their children go near the river,� he muses. “Too bad, because as long as you respect it the river edge is a great place to be.� Yes, we both had very similar childhoods. My parents and my friends’ folks were also very trusting. At the time Stittsville had only a few hundred residents so no doubt they could afford to be more carefree. Outside of the usual warnings, none of us was supervised when we made our annual spring sojourns along the creek and waterfilled ditches which were once the main method of drainage in communities that didn’t have a sewer system. Places like Stittsville in the 1950s and `60s. Some of my formative years were spent in the new, little white bungalow on Elm Street that my parents Howard and Molly pur-

chased in 1954. By the time me, my brother Randy and our sister Linda were in school another builder was expanding the subdivision as the first growth spurt of what has now become a tidal wave of development, hit the then small village. The building project only went so far before the contractor ran out of money. A small network of unfinished dirt roads, with wide ditches on either side, was left in their wake. Everyone who lived nearby referred to the drainage ditches as “the trenches.� It was a swampy place actually. In winter the area was great for snowmobiling, a sport that was just gaining ground or cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. In the spring the melting snow and ice filled the trenches to overflowing and turned the unpaved roads into a quagmire. It was the perfect place to go if you were a kid. It was also the scourge of every mother with an old wringer washer. When I was growing up the first rite of spring was getting “a soaker.� There’s nothing quite like the thrill of wading into a stream or ditch until the rushing water is over your boot tops. The kids would howl as the cold water filled their boots. We wore our sodden socks like the Red Badge of Courage. One incident I will never forget occurred one Saturday morning in the early 1960s. Randy and I and his boyhood friend Larry Parks (he’s now coaching men’s hockey in Norway) headed for the trenches and some fun in the mud. Those spring hijinks were more enjoyable than taking a sap bucket off a maple tree and putting your tongue under the spigot! Sinking feeling That year the mud was particularly deep and incredibly sticky. We hadn’t covered much ground along the abandoned roadway before our boots began to sink. With each step it became increasingly difficult to extricate ourselves. I was the oldest and the wisest as it turned out. I eventually folded my arms, stopped in my tracks and told Randy and Larry I was putting the brakes on this

particular adventure. They pressed on. I can still picture two little boys, plunging through the mud, giggling at their inability to pull their boots out of the slime. My brother finally realized if they ventured much farther they were going to become stuck. He retreated to where I was standing. Larry, who always liked to push the envelope, kept going. Two or three steps more and he began to slowly sink into the mire. His boots disappeared, with him in them! Larry laughed at his own predicament. “I can’t move,� he said, as if we couldn’t see that. Randy and I cautiously waded forward. We each grabbed an arm and tried to pull him out. But tug and yank as we might, we couldn’t free him. Finally we gave an almighty heave and out Larry popped. Minus his boots. And there he stood in a light, spring rain in his sock feet in the mud. We all exploded in laughter! We tried to pull his now empty boots free. They had sunk too deep and the mud at that point was like quicksand. There was nothing left to do but walk home. Randy and I wearing our muddy boots and Larry in slimy, saturated, mudcaked socks. He was quite a sight! We passed our home and went with him to his nearby home. We had to see what his mother Beryl was going to say. Predictably Mom was not amused. By this time Larry’s socks were elongated and dragging when he walked. “Where are your boots,� she demanded loudly. Larry, the only boy among a brood of girls, timidly outlined the sorry details. We tried to suppress smirks. To make a long story short Larry’s father Weldon was summoned from a job site (he was an electrician) to undertake the boot recovery mission. By that time we were safely home. We could picture Weldy taking No. 1 son by the ear and marching him back to the trenches. Larry told us later that his Dad needed a shovel to dig the boots out. Weldy was not amused. We have laughed about that spring “outing� many times since. So when I saw some young lads splashing in mud puddles last week it all came flooding back. Kids, puddles and mud. The perfect spring combination and an enduring Canadian tradition! If you have a comment or question for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey. maguire@rogers.com.

Spring finally asserted itself last week and none too soon! I can’t remember enjoying a day this year as much as I enjoyed last Monday (April 13). The mercury topped the 20C mark and for only the second time this season Kathleen and I sat on our backyard deck and fired up the gas barbecue at dinnertime. The previous week, on Good Friday, the deck still held quite a bit of snow and ice. That underlines how cold and miserable the winter of 2014-15 really was! Last week and the previous weekend gave all of us in eastern Ontario reason for some hope in the weather department. For me a sure sign of spring is little children sloshing through puddles. I saw several examples the past couple of weeks as the last of the snow slowly melted and the water ran along the gutters in our Carleton Place neighbourhood. I’m sure many of you witnessed similar scenes in your community. It’s is heartwarming to see the little ones splashing around in puddles although not so much for parents who discover their kids standing in water with their shoes on instead of boots. When the snow starts to melt Mom or Dad need to put the wellies front and centre. Parents should make sure their little prince or princess is suitably fitted with rubber boots when they head outside to play. Mind you, it is heartwarming for me to see children playing outside period. In the age of video games, portable devices and big screen TV, kids and outdoor play are strangers in far too many cases. More than half a century ago, when I was a kid‌Did I actually write half a century ago? (Talk about dating yourself!) Anyway, when I was a youngster things were different. As soon as children were steady on their pins parents could send them outside to play and with little fear of anything going wrong in the process. The world was a far safer place when I was a kid! My friend Jerry Flynn (he’s now the Deputy Mayor of Carleton Place) is “just a little bit olderâ€? than me. We grew up in the same era and we have similar memories, including how welcome spring was and is. There was no river in Stittsville, where I grew up. But we did have Poole’s Creek (or “Crickâ€? as they say in the valley) and also an area known as “the trenchesâ€? something I will elaborate on as this column unfolds. Jerry of course grew up in Carleton Place. And anyone who knows Carleton Place knows a

Clark, PCs keep up pressure on maple syrup grading standards Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark push the province to finally take its set internationally and adopted by the is pleased pressure by himself and first steps to align Ontario’s maple federal government. the Official Opposition has helped syrup grading standards with those However, Clark questions why Jeff Leal, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, has waited so long to act. “This is an issue local maple syrup producers have raised with me this season and I’m concerned the minister has been dragging his feet rather than moving sooner to get Ontario in step with these grading standards,” said Clark. “Local producers and the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers Association are a $32 million industry in this province – they certainly deserve better.”

Clark first raised the issue in the Legislative Assembly earlier this month after speaking with producers in Leeds-Grenville. The MPP has also tabled an Order Paper question on the issue. On April 14, in response to a question from Clark’s colleague MPP John Yakabuski (Renfrew-NipissingPembroke), Leal said his ministry is finally beginning consultations with the hopes of having new standards in place for Jan. 1, 2016. “It’s disappointing the ministry wasn’t organized enough to have the amendments to regulation 119/11 in place for this season as the federal government did,” said Clark.

“Time and again, we hear this government talk about the importance of the agri-food industry in Ontario. But when it comes time to do something to support this sector, we discover all that talk is just empty rhetoric.” Meanwhile, Clark looked forward to attending the April 18-19 Delta Maple Syrup Festival, where he encouraged local producers to make sure their voices are heard. “Leeds-Grenville produces some of the finest maple syrup in Ontario and Canada and I’m hoping everyone will come out to the festival and show their support,” said Clark. Submitted by the office of LeedsGrenville MPP Steve Clark.

MOTORCOACH HOLIDAYS

Calypso One of our longer in-house residents who, we hope is going to be chosen next. Calypso arrived in the summer of last year with his long hair so matted he needed a full shave. He was a cute boy for a while with his naked body and some long hair left Alvin This young orange and white cat was surrendered by his owner. It’s often heart breaking when people have to make these difficult decisions for unforeseen reasons. The right thing to do is always to check with LAWS whether we have space and are able to re-home the pet. We happily took Alvin in as he is the most adorable cat. He loves to voice his opinion and rubbing his belly will result in a loud purring sound, almost like a racehorse. Alvin is ready to meet his new family and awaits your visit at around his face. Meanwhile his fur LAWS. Thank you for your continued suphas grown back. It’s shiny, slick and port. Follow us if you like on Facebeautiful. It’s time for this handsome young book at www.facebook.com/lanarkman to find his forever home. He’s animals or if you have any questions about 5.5-years-old and gets along or concerns, please contact the shelwith some other cats too. He’s a bit ter at shelter@lanarkanimals.ca or picky though and therefore maybe a by calling 613-283-9308.

New talent comes to Gallipeau Centre Theatre in May 16 fundraiser Adept on drums, keyboards, guitar and bass, he distills the blues, soul and rhythm and blues into a sound that is both solidly traditional and infused with new energy. In 2012 Jordan opened for Aretha Franklin at the Toronto Jazz Festival a rare privilege, as the ‘Queen of Soul’ rarely allows anyone to open for her. “Unfortunately I didn’t get to meet her, but she dedicated a song to me during the concert, referring to me as ‘that tall drink of temptation,’” chuckles Jordan. He is, according to his peers and industry experts, also an incredible vocalist. “He’s a terrific singer and can do ballads by Aretha Franklin or Stevie Wonder – he can do songs that a lot of bands can’t take on. As David Foster said ‘Jordan is one of the best voices he’s heard in 20 years,’” recounts Prakash.

Bringing a delightful mix of ‘60s classic rhythm and blues, Jordan John will be performing at the Gallipeau Centre Theatre on May 16 in concert, which will also raise funds for the Susan Shirley Program in Smiths Falls.

Customer Appreciation

Entire Store 4 Days Only

Thursday April 23rd - Sunday April 26th

The show promises to be both a trip down memory lane and a whole new experience and Jordan will be accompanied by a full band that includes Prakash on bass. “I’m bringing a multi-facetted, energetic, dynamic cross generational and multi racial band and the material we’ll cover is both fresh but classic. We’ll have a little offering of contemporary music through my own work but still in the Memphis to Motown groove,” says Jordan. Other music he’ll feature includes hits by Sly Stone, James Brown, Little Richard, Smokey Robinson and Prince. Jordan admits he has never played in this area, but he has entertained in Ottawa for Canada Day and the Tulip Festival, among other venues. So what does a young man in his late twenties do when he’s not making beautiful music?

“I’m an avid sports fan and I played high level soccer for years. I am especially a diehard Blue Jays fan,” he says. So come on out and experience this fresh new talent not just to encourage Canadian music but to treat mom and support the Susan Shirley Program. If you don’t already know it, the Susan Shirley Program is a residential Maternity Home and Parent Training Centre that supports young new mothers and mothers-to-be through their pregnancy and in those first critical few months after their baby is born. This grassroots charity provides essential housing and life skills training to young pregnant and early parenting women. The program empowers young women to create strong and healthy families and the Gallipeau Centre Theatre is proud to support them. Submitted by the Gallipeau Centre Theatre.

Coming on the heels of Mother’s Day the Gallipeau Centre is celebrating mothers with a delightful classic concert of 1960s rhythm and blues, featuring a fresh young talent and offering tickets at $20, with 10 per cent of proceeds going to support the Susan Shirley Program in Smiths Falls. “It just seems like a great way to honour all the moms out there,” says Howaida SorourRoberts, theatre manager. “Jordan John is one of those rare and exciting musicians who is both a fantastic vocalist and accomplished multi-instrumentalist.” Think Sly Stone, James Brown, Little Richard and you have a pretty good idea of what this young man with the astonishing voice, talent and looks will be bringing to the Gallipeau Centre stage on May 16. “We’re very enthused about coming to Smiths Falls, we love to go places where people want to listen to excellent live music,” says Prakash John, bassist extraordinaire and band member who also happens to be Jordan’s father. Jordan has already compiled a longer list of credits than many performers twice his age.


Hit musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone opens May 21 What do a debonair bridegroom, a harried producer, a Latin Lothario and a glamorous showgirl have in common? They are just four of the 13 outrageous characters in the musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone, premiering Thursday, May 21 at the Studio Theatre. “Drowsy” is the improbable brainchild of Toronto writers and composers Don McKellar, Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, who created a spoof of old musicals for the stag party of their theatre friends Bob Martin and Janet van de Graaf. Then things really started happening for this great show: First, after Martin became a co-writer, it went to the Toronto Fringe Festival. Then it was picked up and produced by Mirvish in Toronto, where it was seen by a New York producer, and eventually brought to Broadway. The show was nominated for multiple Broadway and London theatre awards, winning five Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards. The Perth production of The Drowsy Chaperone is the much anticipated “annual” musical for 2015, following the incredible success of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (2013) and Little Women (2014). Artistic director C.Lee Bates selects the shows based on several key criteria, the most important of which is what she believes Perth-area audiences will embrace. “Perth is a sophisticated community in terms of music appreciation and enjoyment,” says Bates. “There is a huge well of musical talent here, and Perth audiences appreciate a huge range of musical genres. Thanks to the many theatre companies in our community, audiences have been

exposed to a rich tapestry of shows for many years.” Bates has tried to reflect the eclectic taste of the audience by directing shows that are variously quirky, funny, moving and, above all, entertaining. The Drowsy Chaperone qualifies in all categories. The musical features 12 outlandish 1920s showbiz characters appearing in the imagination of one mousy, somewhat agoraphobic, middle-aged man who narrates the historic fictional show from the comfort of his chair in the present. The “Man in the Chair” is the character with whom the audience connects. He exhibits a range of emotions as he narrates us through the recording – brought to life on the stage – of his all-time favourite musical. He shares background and gossip about the performers while he wrestles with the challenges of modern life. The Man in the Chair is an unforgettable “everyman” character who will elicit much empathy from all. He is being played, at alternating performances, by two seasoned and gifted actors, Vern Fraser and Paul LeDuc, who bring exceptional sensitivity and humour to the role. In a recent message to the director, Paul sums up the feelings of both performers: “Thank you… I’m so damn happy about this opportunity, and it’s starting to have an amazing feel, thanks to your vision and the great people involved.” Bates says it’s impossible to pick her favourite of the three musicals she has directed for Studio Theatre Productions. “The one thing all three productions have in common is the creation of an extraordinarily cohesive creative team, both on the stage and behind the scenes,” she says. “Team-

work and collaboration are my dual mantras for a successful production. There are no ‘stars’ in any of our shows. Everyone involved shines and understands that their contribution – whatever it may be – is critically important to the success of the production.”

The Drowsy Chaperone opens at the fully accessible Studio Theatre on May 21 and runs for eight performances: May 21, 22, 23, 28, 29 and 30 at 8 p.m. and May 24 and 31 at 2 p.m. Regular tickets are $25 (cash) at The Book Nook, 60 Gore St. E.; Tickets Please, 39 Foster St. (613-

485-6434; ticketsplease.ca; credit cards accepted, a convenience fee applies) and Shadowfax, 67 Foster St. (613-267-6817; shadowfax. on.ca; credit cards accepted, a convenience fee applies for credit/ debit card purchases). Tickets are $27 at the door, and students with ID pay just $10 at the door

on show nights. You may also wish to take advantage of the opening night special. On May 21, buy a regular price ticket ($27 at the door, cash only) and get a second ticket free! This offer is subject to availability – first come, first served. Submitted by the Studio Theatre.

He’s grateful for the support. “I have those kind of people behind me and that’s incredible,” he said.

Country singer Shane McNulty is ready to take things up a notch. McNulty grew up in the Ottawa Valley, deep in the roots of its music and agricultural charm. He has been hard at work preparing for and creating his first full-length album, Cold Beer N Barbwire, which is set to be released April 25, in conjunction with his performance at the Rising Stars of Country Music Concert at Pembroke’s Festival Hall. Being on stage is an experience like no other for McNulty. “It’s like you’re in another world. I used to call it the bubble,” he said. “You could have had the worst day but when you’re on stage and everything’s working, it’s like you’re on top of the world.” Originally from Carleton Place, McNulty moved to the Renfrew area about 25 years ago and for years worked on the family farm. More recently, the father of two has spent time out west working as a pipe fitter. Music is in his blood. Influenced at a young age by his father, the late Rod McNulty, who was an accomplished

pedal steel player, McNulty quickly developed a passion to follow in his dad’s footsteps . He became a familiar face in the local country music scene, playing the acoustic guitar, drumming in his father’s band and fronting various country cover acts. Local music fans will remember him as a member of the band 40 Creek and McNulty says he learned plenty and had a great time on the local music circuit. “We had fun,” said McNulty. “But all good things come to an end and the guys went their separate ways.” Having spent his life farming during daylight hours and playing bars up and down the Valley until the wee hours of the morning, McNulty still found time to write songs that express the trials and tribulations of his life. Cold Beer N Barbwire sums all of that up, says McNulty. The 12-song blend covers true-to-life experiences that touch all of us, he adds. The new album is his second release. His first was a self- titled and self-promoted EP that received local and international airplay and made him a mainstay on the local station Y101 Country. Taking the next step has meant getting help from a va-

BarnDoor Productions caps 20 seasons with ‘your best ever’ In 20 seasons of varied and exciting theatre, Perth’s BarnDoor Productions (BDP) has never had reactions such as they are getting to their 100th production. The show is Arthur Miller’s iconic Death of a Salesman and it begins with a set that opens the flexible stage at Full Circle Theatre to its widest, providing the cast with a broad canvas to work on. The backdrop is inspired by the original 1949 Broadway production, picturing a looming conglomeration of high-rise buildings that tower over and threaten the tiny enclave that the characters of the play inhabit. Lighting plays an important part, shifting from the play’s “reality” to its “dreams” and blending the two. Along with that, a simple flute plays themes in the background, commenting on the action. Director Janice Jacklin then brings more than 35 years of directorial experience and training to the production.   She moves her cast through the play with an intensity and energy that bring the two-act show in at about two hours and ten minutes, including an intermission. Each scene moves smoothly into the next, often overlapping and intermingling. The pace at which the play moves keeps the dramatic intensity high –  the show is “compressed” and, as a result, its impact is sharper. The next element is a strong ensemble cast, who have immersed themselves in the world of Willy Loman through the rehearsal period. Many comments on the excellence of casting choices speak to the depth of the BDP company, especially as some of the actors joined the cast later. Don MacKay has become a regular on BDP’s stage and provides a strong antagonist in his one scene as Howard, the unthinking son of Willy’s nowdead boss. More interested in his gadgets than in people, he pushes Willy right to edge and leaves him teetering. Paul Roach, as the ghost of Willy’s older brother Ben, haunts the stage, moving in and out of shadow and leading Willy toward the inevitable conclusion. Patti Greer as The Woman is the everpresent memory of his guilt, loud, brash and the

antithesis of Willy’s wife. Aidan Williamson, in his first BarnDoor appearance, is strong as Bernard, the neighbourhood boy who is the opposite of Willy’s sons, but who achieves everything that they don’t. The first of Willy’s sons is Happy, played by Connor Williamson. In a difficult part that is some years older than he actually is, Connor shows strength and a lot of promise. Happy has always been second to his older brother and, even as a grown man, remains so.  Nothing he can do ever moves him up in his parents’ eyes. The play really revolves around Willy’s relationship with his elder son. Brady Johnston as Biff makes a return to the Full Circle Theatre stage with a powerful performance that hits both the height and depths of the character. His final confrontation with Willy is moving and a little shocking and one that moves the play beyond its nominal “amateur” status into another level. And that level reaches professional with the performances of Catherine Clark as Linda Loman and Joe Laxton as Willy. Both of these performers bring decades of experience and training to the roles, along with a deep understanding of the play. Together, they are a pleasure to watch – individually, they are powerful and evocative and moving. Willy’s slow realization of the emptiness of his life’s dream, culminating in a desperate scene where he tries to plant a garden in infertile ground with the words “Nothing’s planted. I don’t have a thing in the ground” bring the audience to the edge. Linda’s farewell to her husband (“We’re free. We’re free”) and the show’s final slow fade push them over the edge. One patrons said that the play was missing just one thing – a box of tissues for the audience. Perhaps even more topical today than in 1949, Death of a Salesman remains must-see theatre and that’s the point. The show concludes its run April 23, 24, 25 at 8 p.m. and April 26 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $2 reserved; $22 at the door. Students are $10. To reserve, simply call 613-267-1884.

Frizell toll fundraiser collection totals $2,700 Terry O’Hearn and Allison Graham

Sultana Frizell does not shy away from saying that the Perth Legion was fundamental in helping her compete in the hammer throw event through the Royal Canadian Legion National Track & Field Program. And she never misses a chance to put in a plug for her hometown of Perth, Ont. Perth-Upon-Tay, Branch 244 Legion, is now leading a fund raising campaign

called, “Perth for Sultana”, to assist Frizell in her quest for the podium at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. The campaign was initiated in October of 2014 by the Legion, with the support of other Perth organizations and businesses, including: Perth & District Collegiate Institute (PDCI), the Town of Perth, Lions Club, Glen Tay Block Race, and the Perth Kilt Run. PDCI came charging out of the gate

by organizing a “Toll Road” on Saturday, April 18, with traffic stops on Gore and Drummond Streets. Dubbed “PDCI for Sultana”, all money collected is to go to the “Perth for Sultana” campaign. The staff at PDCI said they were “very excited to help in this initiative for Sultana and are all proud of her accomplishments.” They stressed the fact that “(Sultana) always takes time to stop

A youth conference at PDCI has heard that some students have received death threats via text message, because of their sexuality. “You’re not worth it, you should go kill yourself,” a text message recounted by one participant during the “Be The Love” youth conference at the Mason Theatre at the Perth and District Collegiate Institute on Wednesday, April 15. Another text message said: “You should die… You’re not worth it. You should go kill yourself.” The eye-opening revelations were just a few of many that saw dozens of young women, in Grade 7 and 8, from across the county, take part in a youth conference sponsored by Lanark County Interval House, and the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital (PSFDH). The focus of the morning presentation was about girl/girl bullying, but for this youngster, she was in the midst of transitioning to be a male. “I was told that I could never be a man and I would never be fully a man and I know that,” the assembled heard. But all of the youngster’s comments were not negative – in fact, there was a strong desire to leave behind something positive. “You have every right to life,” the participant said. “I don’t want you to go through what I went through… I try my hardest to be nice to people.” During the youngster’s emotionally charged speech, she was comforted by friends in the audience. One young woman vented her frustration with the education system.

“The schools say they will help… but honestly, they don’t care what happens in the school yard,” she felt. “They care about good grades. They won’t make a difference. You have to make a difference.” The audience was discussing a film they had just viewed about bullying, especially amongst teenage girls, and one young woman admitted that “it sparked something horrible in me,” bringing back a bad memory of when she was called a derogatory slur – simply for picking up a guy’s hat off of the floor. “Why do we have this urge to throw insults at people we see?” she wondered aloud. “We don’t know ourselves.” Another young woman said: “Never say anything behind someone’s back, unless they are there to defend themselves.” Other women spoke about how some of the “worst” bullies were once friends of the victim. The film sparked a lot of debate – and not only amongst the students. “It was a big discussion for us as an agency, if we would show it,” said Erin Lee, Lanark County Interval House’s executive director, during a lunch break. They decided to show the film, and aim it at “young women who are going through the transition,” in Grade 7 and 8. “I was really surprised after the film, at how open some of the girls were,” said Lee of the film, Kindness Campaign, about two teenage girls who criss-crossed the United States, on a crusade to end girl/girl bullying. “I was shocked at how open they were.” See LOVE page P2

at PDCI to visit former teachers and talk to PDCI students.” Approximately $2,700 was raised during the two hour effort by 12 teachers and administrative staff. The Town of Perth passed a motion at a meeting in January of the committee of the whole, to promote the fund raising by “Perth for Sultana”, and partner with local organizations that are currently planning ways to support the effort. Frizell made headlines across Canada on July 28, 2014, when she won a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland. In addition to the Commonwealth record, she also holds the Canadian and North American records, and competed at the London Olympics in 2012. Along with show jumper Ian Millar and judoka Nick Tritton, Frizell was honoured for her performance at the London Olympics when the trio returned to Perth. Hundreds of people turned out to welcome the athletes, prompting Mayor John Fenik to comment on what a positive effect the Olympians have on young people. Frizell attended Perth & District Collegiate Institute (PDCI), where she competed in all throwing events, followed by several years at the University of Georgia competing in National Collegiate Ath-

letic Association (NCAA) and International events. Currently, her home training base is in Kamloops, BC, where Frizell was under the direction of the renowned Soviet coach Anatoliy Bondarchuk for several years. She is now coached by Derek Evely, who previously coached in the United Kingdom. Evely was the UK Athletics’ Director for the Loughborough High Performance Centre from 2009 to 2012. He coached a young group of throwers, including Sophie Hitchon, who broke the British Record in the hammer throw at 19 years old. The road to Rio will involve rigorous worldwide training and competition, with stops at the Toronto Pan-American Games in July, 2015, and the International Amateur Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Championships in Beijing in August, 2015. The expenses will be considerable, and there is no funding available through Athletics Canada at this time. Financial assistance will allow Frizell to concentrate on the training and competition needed to accomplish her goal. Contributions can be made in a number of ways. Our website is: www.perthforsultana.ca, where online donations can be made through Paypal, and a Facebook Page can be found by searching “Perth for Sultana”. Donations can also be made in person at the Legion Members’ Lounge or Office.

Even selling the idea of having a conference on this type of bullying was a difficult sell to some area schools. “There was some push back from some of the schools,” she said, though she would not say which ones. “We have to figure out how to talk to each other and not attack each other.” In a patriarchal society, women “fight for everything,” Lee explained, but “we do that by be-

interim taX BiLLS dUe aPriL 30tH

Recently there have been a number of sanitary sewer issues involving blockages. As a reminder, residents are asked to abide by the following recommendations for disposing of material in the sewer system. acceptable items: • Liquid Septage, Solid Septage, and Toilet Paper Unacceptable items: • Bathroom Wipes, Dryer Sheets • Paper Towels, Disposable Diapers • Condoms • Bandaids • Dental Floss • GreaSe oF any Kind • Prescription Medication • Cat Litter The Municipality practices a regularly scheduled preventative maintenance and flushing program for the pumping stations and all the sewer mains but without residents taking some care in what they dispose of in their sanitary laterals, back-ups are inevitable and mains can also be affected. Video inspections after a blockage can identify where unacceptably flushed articles and wastes originate.

The Interim Tax Bills were mailed out in early February, with two installment dates. The final installment date of the Interim Tax Bill is thursday, april 30th, 2015. If, for some reason, you have not received your tax bill by now, or if there have been changes to your billing information (such as an address change) please contact the Tax Department at Town Hall by calling 613-267-3311.

Perth pool may be sucked into The Vortex Slip Slidin’ Away: Two new slides could replace old slide at Perth pool

The Perth and District Indoor Pool may be getting more than it asked for. While the pool staff had asked town council to replace its existing water slide, a report by Shellee Evans, director of community services, is recommending the purchasing of a tot slide and a vortex slide, costing $3,000 and $35,500 respectively. While the town has access to $1,859 in the Pool Triathlon Reserve fund, the balance of the funding would come from the general capital reserve fund. The current fiberglass slide is more than 20 years old and, according to the report, in early 2015, “during a routine check, it was discovered that the slide had cracked along the right side of the stairs and had broken away from the fasteners on the deck. The slide was taken out of commission for safety reasons.” While Deputy Mayor John Gemmell said that the purchase of two new slides was “upgrading an existing facility,” Coun. Jim Boldt said he was “a little bit nervous”

of the overall $38,500 price tag. If a new pool has to be built however, Gemmell pointed out, during a debate at the April 14 committee of the whole meeting, that “these things (slides) are moveable, we can take them with us.” Mayor John Fenik was graphically clear in his support of the new slides. “I will be wearing my best swimming trunks and I expect Coun. Boldt to be right behind me,” said Fenik, of his planned-for attire during the slide opening. “I’ll make quite a splash,” joked Boldt, before adding that, despite a bit of initial sticker shock, the slide “is an asset. It gives us a leg up over other towns.” Evans was quizzed as to how two new slides would affect staffing levels at the pool. “We don’t open all elements at the same time because that would be mayhem,” she said, as the pool likes to have at least one staffer assigned to each element. When asked about the likely lifetime of the new slides, Evans admitted that “now know-

ing what is beneath the deck, I would hate to…tell you a time frame I could stand behind.” Family change room Coun. Riq Turner, a father of three small children, said he too was in favour of the new slides – but also urged that the “pool needs family change rooms.” His children are six and four years old, and the youngest is six months old. His eldest must now use the men’s change room, and “all of the slides on the earth will not change that.” When he was told that there were washrooms that he or his wife could use to change his children, he replied that “she doesn’t want to put the baby in the toilet while she is changing.” Fenik appeared supportive of Turner’s request. “It is an amazing idea,” Fenik said. “We should explore it.” Town staff was then directed to investiDesmond Devoy/METROLAND gate the viability of a family change room The current waterslide at the Perth pool, more than 20 years at the facility. old, sits unused, cracked and broken, last Friday afternoon.

Sump pump removal could cost residents $1,750 each desmond.devoy@metroland.com

Residents of Carson’s subdivision could be part of a sump pump “redirection” pilot project – and may have to pay as much as $1,750 for the privilege. A report submitted by R.V. Anderson Associates Limited to Perth town council’s committee of the whole meeting on Tuesday, April 14, showed that the projected program costs for the 60 homes would cost about $105,000, or, about $3,500 per household, though it is proposed that there would be a 50 per cent cost share between the town and residents. Once program administration costs are added in, that number jumps to $135,000 for the whole project. However, R.V. Anderson representatives Alan Perks and Ruth Hanley explained that, by getting “clean water” out of the sewer system and, later, the town lagoon, that “capacity regained in (the) lagoon… (would equal) 300 new homes,” and that the annual tax revenue generated from those 300 new homes would be about $1,050,000. Last year, the company surveyed snow-

melt and rain flow into the system over three months at 10 sites throughout the town. During five days in April, there was heavy rain and “it stays in there and really affects the system,” said Hanley. “A lot of it was clean water getting into the system,” and raises the lagoon to nearly full. “We have to get the clean water out of the lagoon,” said Hanley. “Perth has already done a lot of good work. Perth has a bylaw that discourages storm water from being discharged into the sanitary system.” While thanking the duo for their report, Mayor John Fenik said of the price tag that “I cannot believe that is would cost $3,500,” per household. “If that’s the cost, I’ve got a job ahead of me,” to sell the project, he said. Fenik himself has a sump pump which he runs out of his basement window to the ground outside. “For some people on a fixed income, some people are not going to (get on board,)” said Fenik. But Perks pointed out that “the expense of $3,500 pays itself back in five months.” Hanley agreed: “There is a very high cost benefit there.”

The report estimates that there are about 575 sump pumps in use in Perth homes and businesses. It also found that discharge from one sump pump equaled the sanitary discharge from five new homes. However, this could be mitigated by “simply re-direct(ing) sump pump discharge to a suitable outlet,” like disconnecting from the sewer to the storm sewer or even simply running the hose onto the grass outside. Coun. Ed McPherson, who chairs the finance committee, stated that there is already $2 million budgeted for this project. “It will pay off in the long run. We have no choice,” said McPherson. “Our lagoon is filling up and we can’t expand until we deal with it.” A staff report will be brought to council soon, and environmental services director Grant Machan urges council to “keep an open mind on the dollar amount.” But Coun. Jim Boldt noted that getting buy-in from residents was important. “This is a program we have to get homeowners to embrace,” said Boldt. “We’re all having a knee-jerk reaction to this $3,500.”

Foster St. pub building is a Perth heritage treasure Strolling down Foster St. in Perth, the timeless character of the town is evident in the buildings. The Hope Building, at 69-71 Foster St. is a prime example of the heritage architecture. Erected in 1886 by the Hope Brothers, the 2½ storey brick building was originally a tinsmith shop on the main floor and residences on the two upper levels. The 1896 Trade Edition of the Perth Expositor lists the shop as the local source for hardware, stoves, tinware, household goods, farm and garden tools. They also offered cheese factory supplies. “He does all kinds of work in tin roofing and guttering, all kinds of tin and galvanized iron work, furnace fitting a specialty on hot air furnaces,” the Expositor revealed. “Besides his own business interests, Mr. Hope owns interests in three cheese factories and is one of the proprietors and treasurer of the athletic grounds and racetrack. He is a good businessman and a good citizen.”

Golden Arrow hits target with pub fare

Downtown Perth is known for its old world character and charm. Historic buildings line the commercial streets, creating homes for all kinds of businesses to serve the local population.

A fixture has been a pub at 71 Foster St. Now known For those who stop in for friendly conversation and great as The Golden Arrow, the business was purchased in food, The Golden Arrow hits a 2013 by Robert Brady and bullseye for fun. Dimitrios Kotsovolos from Dave Foster Street Early 1900’s Kirkbright. “There is always something

The Hope family operated their businesses until 1938 when the site was remodeled to house R.A. Pope’s Grocery. By 1941, T. Postelnick was operating a clothing and dry goods business in the building. From 1945 – 48 W.G. Sawdon and Russ Ellis ran an appliance business there.

“Perth is a vibrant town and our Pub is a place where people meet to talk about old times and what new things are happening,” says Dimitrios. “If you have live in Perth, as long as some of us, you know the Golden Arrow as a place that welcomes new people from small towns to large cities. Our Pub always offers interesting conversations.”

The site saw many businesses come and go until 1975 when it first became a restaurant.

Owning the pub is a natural progression for the partners.

The building was designated as a Heritage Site in 1983 because of its unique architecture.

Robert Brady was born and raised in Perth. He received his chef papers from Algonquin College in Ottawa and has worked at various restaurants in Perth, gaining years of experience. He previously owned The Crown and Thistle before going into partnership with Dimitrios and changing the name.

“Of a scale and somewhat simple commercial design, the building is well-proportioned for the location and demonstrates a typical pattern of the Victorian period with residential space above a place of business on a main street in town,” says the Heritage designation document. “The mansard roof on the Foster St. façade is sheathed in tin and features three dormers, partially projected. A cornice in wood with a simply divided soffit and facia on brick end brackets, separates the mansard roof from the main, vertical façade. The relatively new main entry is inset with large show windows on either side, the whole framed in wood including a wide signage panel with dentilled cornice across the top.” With old world charm, the Hope Building continues to proudly serve as a cornerstone in the character of downtown Perth. The Golden Arrow pub is fast becoming another tradition in Perth, offering delicious food and a warm, friendly atmosphere that exemplifies the personality of Perth.

The Hope Block

The Golden Arrow features a delicious variety of pub fare, and is famous for their fish and chips, meat pies, and 14 different kinds of draught beer. The biggest attraction is the original pizza recipe brought to Perth in 1967, now available at the Golden Arrow Pub.

going on at the Golden Arrow. We are open 7 days a week, have live music Thursdays, Fridays and Saturday and karaoke on Wednesday. Just last year we opened a quaint, fully licenced courtyard patio in the back of the restaurant where you can enjoy a beverage and our full menu outside.”

Foster Street 1919

“People come to our pub to have fun, enjoy life, music. Eat great food at great prices, and drink....but not too much. We have regulars that have been coming to our pub since the 90’s.”

Dimitrios was born in Montreal but moved to Perth when he was just four years old. His parents, Peter and Lola, are immigrants from Greece who moved from Montreal to Perth in 1966, to purchase the Perth Restaurant. “In 1967, pizza did not exist in Perth,” recalls Dimitrios. “My parents brought a pizza recipe from Montreal and they were the first restaurant to offer pizza in the town of Perth.”

Popular specials each week keep the menu interesting for regulars and newcomers alike. The first Tuesday of each month is Greek Night with authentic Greek dishes such as Mousaka Pasticho, Spinach Pie, Roast Lamb, Souvlaki, Sagnaki, Dolmates and of course, Greek salad!

Many regulars enjoy weekly events like the dart league on Mondays. And most make sure to attend the ‘toga parties’ hosted in traditional Greek style.

Foster Street Mid 1950’s

Dimitrios grew up in the restaurant business and worked in the Perth Restaurant while attending high school. He later moved to Toronto and earned his Graphic Arts Degree. After working at a few ad agencies, he opened a bar called Shroeder’s in Kitchener in 1986. Bob worked there too. Dimitrios moved back to Perth in 1993 to run the Perth Restaurant for a year and then opened The Tangled Garden Cafe in Westport with his brother Frank. He also owned a restaurant in Kingston called Limestone Garden Grill from 2005-2012 and reunited with Bob to purchase The Crown and Thistle and change the name of the pub to The Golden Arrow Pub and Eatery.

The Golden Arrow is also available for private parties or Dimitrios and Bob will bring the party to you with a complete catering service. You can even create a custom menu. “Perth is slow paced... but only if you want it to be. It may not be as vibrant as Montreal or Toronto, but compared to other towns of its size, it has lots of attractions, artisans, interesting shops, a fabulous little museum, and much more.”

Now that spring is here, the patio at the Golden Arrow is in full swing with a toga party planned for April 25. “We are going to be having our second year anniversary party on Saturday June the 13th. Drop in and find out what small town hospitality is all about.”

The years of experience have given the owners insight into what makes a successful eatery. R0013228925-0423

Lanark, BBD&E firefighters fight large grass fire

Notice to Creditors and Others

Tara Gesner

tgesner@perfprint.ca

All claims against the Estate of Eileen Alice Greer, late of the Township of Drummond / North Elmsley in the County of Lanark, who died on or about the 16th day of March, 2015, must be filed with the undersigned Estate Trustee on or before the 18th day of May, 2015; thereafter, the undersigned will distribute the assets of the said estate having regard only to the claims then filed.

Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) established road closures and detours in the Township of Lanark, assisting local fire departments that battled a grass fire. Firefighters from BBD&E and Lanark departments attended an “out of control” grass fire at 2070 Ferguson Falls Rd. (County Road 15), according to the Fire Dispatch Centre in Smiths Falls. The call came in just after 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 16. Firefighters first to the scene reported multiple vehicles in the field on fire, producing “black, toxic smoke.” Ferguson Falls Road was closed in the east at Pinegrove Road (County 12) and Highway 511 in the west. A detour was in place for east and west bound traffic along Pinegrove Road between the intersections of Ferguson Falls Road and Highway 511 and Fergusons Falls Road and Pinegrove Road. Police asked drivers to avoid the area if at all possible. Initial reports indicated smoke was a hazard on the road. Lanark County Ambulance Service also attended the scene. Grass fires that burn out of control can be problematic as they tie up manpower resources. The Perth Fire Department was on standby in case of any other fire in the BBD&E area. There is a Lanark County wide fire ban in effect at this time. At 2:30 p.m., all Perth firefighters had been ordered to report to the fire hall that day. Carleton Place firefighters from the Ocean Wave Fire Company also supplied manpower to the situation.

DATED at Perth, Ontario this 10th day of April, 2015.

I hearby declare it spring (gulp)

I

t’s here. I hope I’m not jinxing things and bringing about a certain blizzard, but I’m going to call it. Spring has arrived. I remember back when I worked as a reporter at this newspaper, we always photographed “the April blizzard.” Everyone would wander the streets looking stunned and forgetting how to drive (because they’d already taken off their snow tires) and complaining that they’d already put away their toques and parkas and boots, and the reporters would dutifully record the meteorological event for posterity while remarking, “This happens every year, people. It’s April.” Hopefully we’ve passed that point. Maybe we’ve gotten credit already for the long-lived ice and snow banks that lingered well into April while, in other years, the kids could ride their bikes and see tulips poking through the soil during the March Break. Who is in charge of this stuff, anyway? I am not here to complain, though (for real!), because I think I have already adequately covered that angle. Instead, I am here to declare how happy I am to see Spring! How do I know for sure it has arrived (she said, still feeling a bit superstitious and fate-tempting about the whole thing)? Well, here are a few major signs: 1. The cat is mental. With spring comes the ability to open the windows – something that hasn’t happened since sometime in 2014. When the windows are open, everything is different! The outside smells interesting, the birds are noisy and there are…omigosh… so many squirrels! It’s enough to overstimulate a certain kitty! 2. The patio glacier has receded. When last we discussed this matter, there was still a heckuva lot of ice on my precious outdoor room, not to mention a slight risk of frostbite from the northwest wind. Well, with little extra effort on my part (i.e.: compulsive ice chopping until my arms vibrated and, later, ached), the ice receded. It actually melts, you know, if you leave it alone! I haven’t had the patience for that since… um…ever. This past weekend I was able to bag up the leftover rotten leaves and sweep up the dirt and put away the shovels and voila! A patio! With chairs! And a glaring lack of table! Indeed, the chairs are all set up and

ready to welcome the new patio table to replace the glass one that shattered in a rather alarming a way after a windstorm last September. We opted not to get a new, non-glass one just in time to store it for the winter, so our chairs wait in breathless anticipation of the new arrival. As do I. I need a reliable flat surface upon which to place my coffee. (Still a bit too cool to be talking about cold beverages yet.) 3. Glaring lack of leaf bags. Another sign of spring is random bursts of energetic yard work followed by the disappointing lack of implements with which to finish the job. Just when my raking muscles were starting to beg for me to finish the darned job and go sit on my table-less patio, I discovered a drastic shortage of leaf bags on the premises. This is all fine and good if the wind isn’t blowing much, but the threat of my piles scattering and it all being for naught prompted me to cram the rest into the few already-filled bags I had. Someone else can lug those puppies away, I tells ya. 4. Last but certainly not least, playoff hockey. It’s actually pretty amusing for me to be writing about hockey at all. Our family falls quite firmly within the “bandwagon fan” category. When asked at any time of the year we’ll say we are Sens fans, but that doesn’t mean we actually, you know, watch them. When a goalie sensation helps to clinch a playoff spot, it gets a little interesting, though! Recently we found ourselves in the completely unlikely scenario, while visiting friends, of cheering for the (gasp!) Leafs one night when it was important for Boston to lose. Meanwhile our friends, who are die-hard Leafs fans, cheered for Boston because, you know, they hate the Sens. So we’ve dusted off the Sens garb, Girlchild has made “Go Sens Go” posters and we actually tune into the games. I feel so darned Canadian! Sometimes I even watch for many minutes at a time before getting distracted by shiny things. Ah, Spring! Enjoy it before the next blizzard.

Brush fire brushes edge of Highway 7

Fire crews were called out to a residence on Highway 7 just east of Perth on the morning of Thursday, April 16 to fight a brush fire that had also caught on to a nearby fence. Above, volunteer firefighters get deep into the brush to polish off the remaining dying embers of a brush fire. The fire chiefs of Lanark County have issued a fire ban which will run until May 15.

Political food fight poses food for thought

W

here’s the beef? When it comes to politics, there seems to be a strong connection to food, and politicians are more than happy to co-opt this language if it suits them. Our language appears to be saturated, with food references (there you go again): getting to the meat of the matter, bringing home the bacon, chewing the fat, bread and butter issues. (Points to you if you can name that tune, or, quote, from my lead sentence. Go ahead, I’ll wait. No peeking now. Got it? OK, it came from former U.S. vice president Walter Mondale to Colorado Senator Gary Hart, borrowing a line from a 1984 Wendy’s commercial, to attack what he saw as his opponent’s lack of policy gravitas… or maybe it was just a cheap dig.) The British general election campaign continues across the pond, but there appears to be a disproportionate amount of coverage on, ahem, what Prime Minister David Cameron eats. I kid you not. In early April, according to the New York Post, the Conservative leader was at a family barbecue where he was pho-

DESMOND DEVOY Des Says tographed eating a hot dog with a knife and fork. During an earlier visit to New York City, Cameron had eaten another hot dog with no trimmings – no ketchup, mustard, relish, noting (though my wife noted that he probably didn’t want to soil his suit lest ketchup land on his Eton tie.) Cameron’s challenger, Labour leader Ed Miliband, was also teased for a photograph where he is seen eating a bacon sandwich. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio was also not immune to tabloid snickering, having been photographed eating a pizza slice with a knife and fork at Goodfellas Pizzeria in Staten Island. Back in Ole Blighty, Cameron couldn’t catch a break during a trip to Scotland. During breakfast with his wife Samantha at a campaign stop in Edinburgh, the Scottish Express noted

that he “tucked in to square sausage, haggis, egg and fried bread, while Mrs. Cameron had a sausage-and-egg roll.” The paper described his meal as a “full English breakfast” but one wonders how it can be a “full English” if it includes haggis, the most Scottish of dishes? But I digress. This time, Samantha’s breakfast came in for scrutiny, with the paper wondering, “if the mother-of-four actually ate any of her breakfast.” It was left to the Scottish Conservative leader, Ruth Davidson, to defend her English friend: “She ate it all, bar the lid – it was a big roll and a lady never likes to carb up on too much bread of a morning.” Well, glad that’s at least one election issue that’s been put to rest. Even here in Canada, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s weight has been the subject of speculation. Way back in March of 2006, according to an old CanWest news story, a photo ran on many Canadian newspaper front pages of Harper holding a tray of food, including a can of pop, as he sat down for lunch

COLUMN From page P8

with Canadian soldiers in Kandahar, Afghanistan. There were plenty of jokes about Harper’s “Battle of the Bulge” at the time, including an editorial cartoon in La Presse, where he said it was his own personal bulletproof vest. As for his choice of liquids, Dr. Paul Boisvert, co-ordinator for educational activities for the Merck Frosst/Canadian Institutes of Health Research chair in obesity at Laval University, said that Harper’s love of pop drinks “is not a good example.” (In fairness, Yoni Freedhoff, medical director at the Bariatric Medical Institute in Ottawa said that people in Harper’s position “may have even more pressures than we have to eat and that may make weight loss more challenging… It’s unreasonable to expect our leaders to be any more healthy than we are.”) Habits do change though. Once a regular at the McDonald’s restaurant counter, now, according to Reader’s Digest, former U.S. President Bill Clinton is a vegetarian. (Harper’s predecessor, Paul Martin, by comparison, boasted about losing weight on the South Beach diet in the House of Commons….) I wonder what this says about us as a society that our media has such an interest in what politicians eat. You are what you eat, I guess? (Legend has it that British Prime Minister Tony Blair seemed to have a chameleonlike appetite. Wherever he was, whatever the local dish was, it just so happened to be his favourite. Fish and chips in a working class area one day, delish. Campaigning in a Hipster area of London? Bring on the vegan quiche, my fave. Probably very like his

“please like me, I’m everyone’s friend,” style of governing.) A poster for a pie auction for the rightwing Wildrose party in Alberta may have reinforced the belief that the party – which may well win the May 5 vote – is slightly redneck in its world view. The Calgary Sun reports that the poster for the event in Pollockville called on supporters to “take a break from calving, farming, spring work and NHL playoffs to join your neighbours from near and far.” Not bad, as it is a rural area. But the next sentence, “bring your wife’s pie!” may well have been written by Mad Men’s Don Draper in his prime. Alberta NDP leader Rachel Notley was quoted by News Talk 770 CHQR radio in Calgary as saying that “it’s clear he (the candidate) has a sweet tooth but he needs a wisdom tooth.” Cue rim shot. But, while this may be a silly side story to the election campaign, politicians also make hay with food prices. As I write this, it is budget day on Parliament Hill. Finance Minister Joe Oliver is promising a balanced budget, and by the time you read this some time on Thursday, Ontario’s Finance Minister, Charles Sousa, will deliver his latest budget in the late afternoon. Margaret Thatcher, when she was Britain’s opposition leader in the late 1970s, was already grasping how best to use easy-to-digest (pun intended) images to make her point. On April 24, 1979, Mrs. T was photographed in West Yorkshire holding two shopping bags. One was Tory blue, and was labeled “February 1974,” the last time her party was in office, while the other bag in her hand was Labour red, marked “Today.” According to the

Margaret Thatcher Foundation’s web site, the 1974 bag was “bulging,” while the red bag was “slim and meager in content.” Each bag represented one British pound sterling ($1.82 Canadian) in buying power. The Daily Express, the next day, quoted the grocer’s daughter from Grantham as saying that “if Labour had five more years, I would only need an envelope to carry the shopping, so don’t let them lecture you on food prices.” In 1996, bread-and-butter issues met up with the authenticity test when the question du jour that U.S. presidential candidates were asked in the primary season was just how much a carton of milk cost. Back in the 1970s, Pierre Trudeau made fun of the idea put forward by Progressive Conservative leader Robert Stanfield of wage and price freezes to battle inflation. “Zap, you’re frozen!” Trudeau condescendingly mocked Stanfield in 1974 – only to have to implement the same freezes himself after he was re-elected that year. These days, food prices are noticeably rising. We’ve seen where food price instability has led to unrest. If Thomas Mulcair or Justin Trudeau are looking for a winning election issue, tackling food prices might not be a bad plank to consider for their platforms. And, let’s not forget that, for all the attention paid to what politicians are putting into their mouths – they are human too, believe it or not – that there are families, and children, who are going to go to bed tonight hungry. In a land as plentiful and rich as Canada, where food goes to waste daily, that should be an outrage – not David Cameron’s choice of cutlery.

Cancer-stricken mother brings tale to Relay kick-off Desmond Devoy

desmond.devoy@metroland.com

For a woman on the cusp of losing it all, she kept her cool, her composure. She stood, an example to the gymnasium full of young people. Hers was a face they may have seen on the evening news, one facing a terminal illness. She also had to contend with the possibility of losing her child in the process. And to top it all off, there she was, doing something that the vast majority of the students in front of her dreaded – public speaking. But if Jillian O’Conner can face down terminal cancer, giving a speech at the St. John Catholic High School Relay for Life kickoff assembly on Thursday, April 16, paled in comparison. Last year, two weeks after she broke the joyful news to her husband that she was pregnant with their third child, O’Conner found a lump in one of her breasts. “I didn’t know how everything would happen,” she said, standing at the lectern, composed, her voice steady and clear. She had to undergo a mastectomy but, “I was scared that something really bad would happen to the baby.” When she was 18 weeks along, she discovered that she had stage four breast cancer, which had me-

tastasized. Later, the cancer had spread to her liver, leading her to, again, wonder, “How is this ever going to work out?” Though a diagnosis like that was heart-wrenching enough, she also learned she “had about two years left to live. That was pretty heavy.” She looked at her life. Her husband. Her two young children, a son, 19 months old, and her daughter, aged two. Her unborn child. For her, “terminating the pregnancy was not the best thing for me to do as a person,” she said. However, her oncologist at the Ottawa Hospital told her that there was possibly a chemo therapy process she could take that might not affect her unborn child. As the chemo proceeded, her doctors kept a keen eye on the baby as well. “The baby was growing normally,” she said. The baby was born on Feb. 1, and O’Conner and her husband chose not to know the sex of the baby before it was born. It turned out to be a little boy, whom they named Declan. “He was perfect, with no flaws at all,” she said. “(He is) very, very loved by his brother and sister.” However, the good news was soon offset by even more tragic news. “The cancer had spread to my bones,” she said. “Very distressing news.”

Looking out over the quiet, darkened auditorium, she needed say no more than “you are helping real people” by participating in the Relay for Life. A daughter remembers But cancer affects more than just one person. The theme of the assembly, organized mostly by students, centered around children’s books from their childhoods, from Dr. Seuss’ “Oh, the Places You’ll Go” to “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” to Robert Munsch’s children’s book that brings a tear to any parent’s eye, “Love You Forever.” “Like most people who have a heart, I teared up,” said teacher Mary Retty of her first time reading the book. She explained how central her mother was to her family, and how she taught her and her four other siblings that in life, you “either laugh or cry,” and that, “most times, it is better to laugh than cry.” Further to this, “unconditional love was essential to keeping a family together.” The family may well have had reason to cry in 1993 when her mother was found to have cancer and was given seven weeks to live. “They were from a generation where they felt that they had to keep it a secret,” she said. But, as

the cancer sessions continued, they could not keep it a secret for long. She outlasted the seven weeks and was able to attend Mary’s wedding in October of 1994, and even made it to her 41st wedding anniversary in October of 1995. However, by that point, her mother was not well, and the family began a rotation, making sure someone was with her at all times. “I was there when she died,” explained Mary of that date, Oct. 21, 1995. Three days later, her mother’s funeral was held – on Mary’s 31st birthday. In time, Mary had children of her own, but “that joy was mingled with sadness. They (my children) had been ripped off. They would never know their grandmother.” She too had been “ripped off,” of sharing the “bond of motherhood,” with her own mother. Shout out Cam Whelan of the Canadian Cancer Society was effusive in his praise for the school. “You get it, you get it,” he said passionately, having told fellow society members that “you’ve got to see the Relay and St. John, the Spartans… Collectively, here, as Spartans, you have cared for people for 14 years. Relay is a chance to care about one another.” He added that he hoped to one day see “a Canada that no longer fears cancer.”

Everyone is welcome to come and show their support. If you are spring cleaning, please don’t toss out anything useful, but hold any unwanted items for our Ladies Auxiliary hosted Garage Sale. All donated items (except clothing and footwear) will be accepted on Friday, June 26, from 1 to 4 p.m., while the sale will take place on Saturday, June 27, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Days of Yore … In The Perth Courier of January 29, 1970, from a Legion Publicity column by Don Crawford: “But just remember this: the next time you pass the building on the north bank of the Tay River, between the bridges on Drummond and Beckwith streets in Perth, have a second thought … a lot of good community work comes to fruition from within those

Branch 244 News walls.” Don Crawford was a long-time Legion member, a World War II veteran, and a gifted storyteller. His column titled “Stories that Missed the Headlines” was published in The Perth Courier for more than two decades, and a collection of those stories became a book of the same title after his passing in 2000. Crawford also penned a beautiful poem called “Why Wear a Poppy”, which appears on the Veterans Affairs Canada website. Submitted photo

Did you know? Legion president Eric Devlin (centre) recently presented some Korean War medals to the The website cracked.com publishes many weird Hall of Remembrance Military Museum. Here he is flanked by 1st Vice-President John and wonderful stories from around the world, and Gemmell on the left, and Bill McKenzie. recently noted on their website that “the Nazis were kinda like a huge tub of Legos that we poured out on our living room floor – even though we thought we cleaned it up seventy years ago, we still can’t walk around barefoot without getting little chunks jabbing us in the heel.” They go on to describe an incident in 1998, when construction workers trying to build a Holocaust memorial stumbled across Joseph Goebbles’ bunker. Somehow it had survived the devastating bombings near the end of World War II, was sealed up, and then just forgotten about. Finding the underground fortress of the Nazi Minister of Propaganda in the exact spot dedicated to a holocaust memorial was indeed a bit awkward for the German people.

MOVIE: Paul Blart mall Cop 2 STARRING: Kevin James, Raini Rodriguez, Eduardo Verastegui, Daniella Alonso, and Neal McDonough DIRECTOR: Andy Fickman RATING: PG I’m fairly certain I don’t need to tell people to avoid Paul Blart Mall Cop 2, but I’ll sleep better at night if I do. Okay maybe it isn’t that bad, but unless you’re in some kind of Kevin James fan club, or a cult there’s no reason whatsoever to see this film in the theatre. It’s been six years since the events of Black Monday, and things haven’t exactly gone to plan for Paul Blart (Kevin James). His wife divorced him after only six days. Then his mother is killed when she gets hit by a milk truck. Paul has only two things left in his life, his daughter Maya (Raini Rodriguez) and his job. Then out of nowhere he gets an invitation to come to Las Vegas for the national convention for mall security officers. Paul and Maya head to Vegas for some much needed rest and relaxation. Unfortunately there isn’t a lot of either to be found. Maya stumbles into the middle of a group of criminals stealing all of the hotel’s priceless art. With Maya in danger, and the hotel being robbed Paul springs into action. All right, ‘springs’ isn’t exactly the right word. It is more like stumbles and bumbles into action, but you get the idea. Mall Cop 2 isn’t the worst film ever, it just isn’t worth your hard earned money. It’s an inoffensive slapstick comedy that’s more amusing than laugh-outloud funny. Too much time is spent

My Take Mark haskins

on character development, and not enough time doing the whole action comedy thing. James is at his best and funniest when he’s doing his tribute to John McClane, but by the time the good stuff starts you’re already bored. Aside from one hilarious fight scene with Blart’s mall cop buddies (which there was not nearly enough of) and a few other funny scenes here and there, the film is a bit of a bust. Kevin James is a pretty likeable actor and comedian, and by extension so is Blart. James has created this silly, ridiculous, cartoon character of a person, and found a way to make him someone we genuinely like. That’s one of the few strengths of the film, but I got all that in the first film. I wanted more of that Blart style action. The rest of the cast is just as likeable. Raini Rodriguez is a delight as Blart’s daughter. Nicholas Turturro, Loni Love, Gary Valentine, and Shelly Desai are woefully underused as Paul’s fellow mall cops. Neal McDonough plays a pretty good stock villain, and does a decent crazy off with James. If you are the president of the Kevin James fan club or part of some Blart cult, and have to see Paul Blart Mall Cop 2, save your money. It will be on Netflix or on The Comedy Network, or even in the five dollar bin at Walmart fairly soon. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature.

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!

MACAULAY Jim

Jim Macaulay, passed away, peacefully on Friday, April 3, just 2 months off his 92nd year. Jim was unique. Part teacher, part mad scientist, part artist, part progressive thinker, part old fashioned gentleman. A complete renaissance man. He was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1923. He enjoyed an eclectic career working as a structural engineering draughtsman, an assistant yacht designer on the 1958 America’s Cup challenger, a film cameraman, model maker, art director and graphic artist. He moved with his wife Eunice and his children to Montreal to take up a position at the National Film Board, and eventually, he began a new career and perhaps the most rewarding part of his varied working life, as a teacher of drawing and animation at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario. During his years there, he played an instrumental part in the training of hundreds of young animators, many of whom he was proud to see fulfilling their career goals, at prestigious animation studios throughout the world including PIXAR, Industrial Light and Magic, Walt Disney and as teachers themselves carrying on in Jim’s footsteps. He will be sorely missed by his former students, many of whom he considered life long friends, by the many dear friends he made in the film industry, through his wide outside interests, and during his retirement time in both Perth and St. Eugene, and by his nephews and niece in the UK and especially by his two daughters Lesley and Maggi, his Granddaughters, Zoë Sophia and Emilie and by his son in law, Christopher. His family would like to extend their thanks to the staff of the Heritage Lodge for the great care they gave Jim over the last year. He counted you as friends too, as do we. A private family gathering will be held at a later date.To express your condolences, make a donation or light a candle in memory please visit www.hillcrestfuneralhome. ca Funeral arrangements entrusted to Hillcrest Funeral Home 151 Bond Street, Vankleek Hill, ON K0B 1R0 613 678-2002.

Freeman Wilson 1943-2015

Wilson, Billy as he was called by his Nova Scotia family, neighbours and schools chums, was the first-born to Norma and Whitman Freeman. His siblings are Barbara, Bobby, Alan and Birdie. His Mom was a high school teacher, avid gardener and yoga instructor in her senior years. He learned his farming practices from his Dad who milked Jersey cows, raised layers and taught him how to make the meadows in a dry year. When he was young, he loved to hunt and fish. His Mom would pack him a lunch and off he went to the bush. On a few occasions, he played hooky and headed off to the bush and came home at the regular school dismissal time. He and his teenage buddies built a hunt camp near a brook where it still sits today. If only those walls could talk! He attended the local schools, Pleasant River and Caledonia and then the Nova Scotia Agricultural College. He then attanded McDonald College and graduated with a Science Dregree from McGill University in 1966. Wilson became the father of eight children by choice and circumstance. He and Marilyn got married and chose Shane and Craig to be their sons. Later he married Shirley and added Kim and Connie to his family. In 1981, his family grew by 3 more, Darryl, Derrick and Chrystal, Gail’s children. Gail and Wilson created a special bond with Michael as foster parents. He was well respected at Statistics Canada, Census of Agriculture. He met farmers across Canada and spent time understanding their farming practices. He retired in 2009 after 37 years and returned in 2011–12 part-time. He was a go-to for Ag knowledge and only a phone call away for co-workers. Wilson always said he really did not need to travel. His world was at his fingertips sitting under the maple tree in the front yard with his family and friends. Peace be with you! Memorial Service Saturday May 2, 2015 at 2 p.m. at Mountain Township Agricultural Hall, 2967 Lough Road

Sunny skies smiled upon Smiths Falls on Sunday, April 19 for the fourth annual Spring Fling Running Thing event, to benefit the Smiths Falls Community Hospital Foundation. Hundreds of runners descended on the Cataraqui Trail to enjoy a half-marathon, 10K, 5K or 2K run. Over the past four years, $25,000 has been raised for the hospital foundation through the Spring Fling, allowing them to purchase vital patient care equipment. Clockwise, from top left: the Spring Fling’s mascot, the Running Thing, strikes a pose as the seconds count down before the start of the 10K race; young Elenya Gardner has a look of determination on her face as the pushes towards the finish line in the 2K distance; Rob Gemmell and Hillary Gemmell shoot off of the 5K starting line; runners kick off their 21kilometre trek during the half-marathon event.

Youth Centres Canada (YCC) has returned to Smiths Falls with its giant book sale, but this time the town is the first stop on a regional circuit with provincial possibilities. The first spring YYC giant book sale will feature over 20,000 books and take place inside County Fair Mall (beside Dollar Tree) April 23 to 26, 30, and May 1 to 3. “We’ll accept donations for the first week,” explains Les Voakes of YCC. The sale is also accepting donations of DVD movies and music CDs. The concept for the giant book sale began last fall when the national organization hosted its first giant book sale at the County Fair Mall in October. “It was a test to try to see what we could do with it. It was huge,” Voakes said. The sale sold over 2,000 books and solidified itself as a strong fundraising vehicle both for YCC and its participating youth centres. Voakes explains each youth centre that volunteers to set up, take down and work the sale will get a third of the proceeds with the remainder going to YCC for its programs, operations and national conference. The sale benefits more than the bottom line for these not for profit organizations. Voakes points to its emphasis on encouraging literacy and providing volunteer hours as well as retail experience for youth. The sale is designed as a fundraiser with a suggested donation of $2 for each book with the exception of some special items that may go as high as $10. “They’ll be some pretty amazing bargains for people,” Voakes said. One of the sale’s strengths is its organization – all books are put into genres for easy searching. Shoppers are encouraged to come often as stock will be continually replenished as items sell. Province-wide Last fall’s event was held in Smiths Falls and Lincoln Fields, and further proved the business case that such a large book sale could be packed up and moved from community to community. Voakes said she is excited about their plans to create regional travel routes that donated books will travel for sale. Books from multiple communities will be up for grabs at each sale thanks to this system. “Everybody should always see new books,” he said. The YCC is currently developing the eastern Ontario circuit as their phase one, but would like to expand to include southern Ontario and southwestern Ontario routes. Once these routes are established they will overlap each other to allow for each circuit to swap out their book stock for another region’s. Plans to go across the province are looking great, as YCC has established a partnership with Total Move Management to transport their books and RIOCAN for sale space. sroy@perfprint.ca

Helping pets find fur-ever homes

Every April, animal lovers and the pet experts at Pet Valu stores across North America, team up to lend a helping paw to animal rescue charities and pets in need. So far, thanks to its annual April Pet Appreciation Month event, Pet Valu and its customers have donated more than $3.3 million to North American animal rescue charities and found homes for over 3,100 pets. This year, Pet Valu is upping the ante, with a bold $1.5 million fundraising goal, which will take its total dollar and product donations up to $5 million in five years. “Now in its fifth year, Pet Valu Pet Appreciation Month raises much-needed money and supplies to support abandoned, homeless and abused animals in communities,” explains Julie Johnston, vice president of marketing and merchandising, Pet Valu. “One-hundred of the products and dollars raised are donated directly to pet charities, and money raised at our stores, stays in the local community.”

Pet lovers have been showing their appreciation during April by doing the following: · Just by commenting, liking, sharing, retweeting, or favouriting one of our #PostaPaw messages or creating your own using #PostaPaw, you will trigger a donation of 1 cup of pet food. Help us generate 15,000 cups of pet food for deserving pet rescues. Visit us at www.facebook.com/petvalu or follow us on Twitter @petvalu to learn more. · Visit your local Pet Valu throughout the month of April, purchase and sign an official PAW for $1, $2, $5 or $10 – or make a product donation to local animal rescue charities. · Participated in National Adoption Weekend from April 17 to 19 when Pet Valu stores team up with local animal rescue organizations to help find forever homes for homeless pets. This year, Pet Valu is hoping to find homes for more than 2,000 pets in need.

SALE OF LAND BY PUBLIC TENDER

Laurie Weir/METROLAND

Dr Murphy, I have been suffering with depression. Is there something chiropractic care can do for me? Good question this week.

how we feel.

First, a misalignment in the spine, adds pressure to the nervous system. This pressure can you give you a feeling of despair, brokenness and poor health. I always recommend that you start with an exam with a chiropractor to begin the process of repairing your spine and healing your nervous system.

There is actually a hormonal relationship between these ideas and feeling joy, love and happiness. You get an oxytocin rush every time you do a good deed, see a good deed or have a good deed done for you. Oxytocin in your system gives you a positive lift mentally.

Some other things to think about…

Tomorrow when you wake up, get up with a purpose to make life better for someone. Also, call a chiropractor and ask for an exam of your spine. You will be amazed!

Spring is coming and have you got plans for a garden? Are you starting an outdoor exercise routine? Do you have plans to help a loved one succeed in achieving something great? We know that planning ahead, exercise, and Blessings, helping others are all ways to change Dr Murphy

Perth sparkles as jeweler celebrates 90 years in business Kayleen Preston

kayleen.j.preston@gmail.com

One afternoon when Harold Edgar Burns and his wife Margaret were travelling along highway 7 headed towards Smiths Falls for Settlers’ Days from Norwood, Ont., they decided to stop in Perth for a new wristband for her watch. They arrived at J.A. Graham’s jewelry store, where they got to talking with the owner. Graham explained how he was planning on retiring and was planning on selling the business. A short time later, the Burns moved into the area and bought the store off of Graham for $20,000. Burns graduated from The Canadian Horological Institute in watch making, and was also an optician. Therefore he was able to expand the business to also repair eyeglasses. Being a Charter member of the Perth Rotary Club, town councillor, mayor of Perth, and a member of the Perth Citizens Band, Burns was a major part of the community. H. E. and Margaret had three children: Gwendolyn, Robert, and Kenneth. In 1954, after 29 years of owning the business, H.E. sold the store to his youngest son Kenneth. Ken improved the store by learning the art of hand engraving allowing all items to be engraved in-store. To this day, they continue doing all engraving. When Ken was the owner, much of the repairs had been done in–store including ring sizing, watch repairs and stringing

Kayleen Preston/METROLAND

Tom Burns, Angela Barrie, Penny Emon, Elaine Patterson, and Lois Cameron of Burns Jewelers pose in front of a display case April 15. The display case featured behind the associates has been in the store since Tom’s father Ken was the owner. Burns Jewelers has been in the family for three generations, beginning in 1925. Though each generation ran the store slightly differently, the customer service has never changed. pearls. Beyond this, Burns made trophies for many events across eastern Ontario. Ken and his wife Elizabeth had four children: Robert, Thomas, Margaret, and Constance. Although all of the family worked at the store throughout their lives, Tom was the one most interested in the business. When he was 14 he began working with his father, and spent much

of his time after school at the store. In 1989, Tom bought the store from his father, where throughout the years he has made many changes to the store, but solely to improve customer satisfaction. This includes having two goldsmiths come in throughout the week for any gold repairs, repairing or replacing watchbands, and having a computerized

machine to complete the engraving tasks. This is on top of having a very wide selection and stock of new products, styles of jewelry, and watches. If the item you are looking for is not in the store, Tom will find a way to have it brought in, or work with you to make your dream item become a reality. After watching the movie Blood Diamond, Burns made sure that all of the diamonds in the store were Canadian. He sent away items that he had in the store with diamonds from other countries, to have the diamonds replaced to be Canadian. Currently at his store, the only items in his store which are not 100 per cent Canadian are the Pandora and watch products. Quality is very important to Burns Jewelers. “I’d sooner sell a nice stone, maybe a little smaller, work with it, and get something that’s decent. Because when you get your engagement ring you don’t want to see a flex in it or any flaws in it .... So even some of the stuff we’ve got from companies, I inspect them. If I don’t like it, I send it back. Because a girl gets a ring, that’s her ring. It’s a very big deal to her.” One of Burns’ favourite pieces in his store is the ring that has been nicknamed the “OMG ring,” since that is all people can say when they see it the first time. This ring is valued at $5,000, featuring three diamonds in a row, surrounded by 14 smaller diamonds. Its true beauty can only be justified by seeing it in person.

“I like to help young guys buy rings, because they come in the store and they’re a deer in headlights. They have no idea what they’re looking for, they have no idea the price of stuff; they have no direction,” Tom says when asked what he enjoys most about being a jeweler. Although many times he is unable to view the result of helping these gentlemen, he enjoys giving them advice about how they will carry out the proposal. “I always think that it’s so much better when you have a story to tell when you do it you know?” Granted that Tom is the owner of the store, the true face of the company are the wonderful women who work at the store front. The fun atmosphere is filled with the bubbly personalities of Lois Cameron, who has been there for 20 years; Penny Emon, 13 years, Elaine Patterson, five years, and Angela Barrie. “I’ve enjoyed my job very much. We have a wonderful boss and all the people I work with, make it worth while coming to work,” Cameron said. All of the women agreed that working with the customers and seeing the new pieces come into the store is one of the best aspects of working with jewelry. In celebration of 90 years in business, Burns hopes to have a sale at the store in the near future. On top of this, he is planning a spectacular Christmas show. To be informed of when this will occur, as well as seeing contests that are held regularly, follow Burns Jewelry on Facebook.

Flood of Food building to a tsunami with latest pick-ups The Perth Rotary Club’s elementary schools’ Flood of Food continues to gain momentum, which quickly became a torrent, at North Elmsley Public School in Port Elmsley on Friday, April 17. Teacher Courtney Cluff and the student council took a leadership role in the food drive, with the student body being divided into four teams named after the school colours: red, black, grey and white. The team with the most points wins the coveted Tam Cup, proudly on display in the front lobby. Every day of the food drive, the student council chose a theme: pasta, tomatoes, et cetera. The youths placed their donations in their team’s box and the

items were tallied. The team with the most items won points. A whopping 370 food items were collected, an amazing feat from a student body of 92. Then it was off to Perth where the pick-up team was met by the Grade 3 class at St. John Catholic School, who helped lead the drive to collect and count the daily donations. These amazing kids helped collect more than 500 food items and helped load it into the truck, headed to The Table Community Food Centre’s Good Food Bank. The students were treated to an extended recess for their efforts. Submitted by Wendy Quarrington The Table Community Food Centre

Carleton Place Jr. A Canadians repeat as Bogart Cup champs in front of home town crowd Laurie Weir

MAKES A GREAT MOTHERS DAY GIFT!

Laurie Weir/METROLAND

Carleton Place Canadians celebrate winning the Bogart Cup after Sunday’s 8-3 route of the Pembroke Lumber Kings at home. To the right, Devin Campbell hoists the cup. to rely on any one player. It’s all 20 of us and that’s what we’re going to do down the line.” That last line of defense is go-to netman, Guillaume Therien. He has been in nets for this entire series. “We were up pretty early and we never looked back,” said Therien. “It was a pretty good game for me. I got the right bounces and had the luck of the crossbar in the first period and it went from there.” As a second-year goalie in this league, Therien said his confidence is stronger. “We just show up at the right time and the right place,” he said. “I try to have fun every game… if things happen, they happen (like a loss) and we pick up and go from there. The main thing is to have fun every game.” The Fred Page Cup is slated for April 29 to May 3 as the battle of eastern Canada will be held in Cornwall. “Everyone is healthy,” noted Clarke, “and we are getting ready for the Fred Page Cup.”

home team as Post scored on the power play at 2:44 assisted by Baylis and Larson. Stewart had his second of the game with help from Sturtz and Alex Robinson at 11:08. Pembroke scored the final goal as Colton Keuhl took the credit with 14:51 on the clock to close out the game, 8-3. Pembroke was hit with 40 minutes on nine infractions and Carleton Place was assessed 22 minutes on seven infractions. Therien took the win credit with 22 saves while Jordan Piccolino suffered the loss facing 36 shots with 28 saves. Sean Green played between the pipes for 1:10 of the game allowing one goal. Stars of the game were Baylis and Stewart for Carleton Place and Hudson for Pembroke. Earlier, on Thursday, April 16 at home, the Canadians squeaked out a 5-3 win at home during Game 4 of the series.

Game 5 recap There were 750 fans in attendance Sunday afternoon in Carleton Place. The teams were tied at one each after the first. Craig Pefley had the Canadians first goal at the 3:04 mark, assisted by Vinny Post and Devin Campbell. Pembroke tied it with a short-handed sizzler from out front as Hudson Michaelis scored from Jesse Blais with 10:37 showing. In the second, Carleton Place lit the lamp five times with five different players taking the goal credits. Scoring were Andrew Dodson from Connor Merkley and Ryker Killens at 2:04; Tyson Stewart, short-handed from Maxime St. Pierre at 4:44; Baylis, short-handed from Sturtz and Devin Campbell; Sturtz from Stewart and Pefley at 7:04 and Jordan Larson from Post and Baylis at 16:44.

The playbook couldn’t have written a better outcome Sunday as the Carleton Place Jr. A Canadians captured the Central Canada Junior Hockey League’s (CCHL) Bogart Cup at home in front of a boisterous and appreciative full house. It was their second cup in as many years as the Canadians rolled over the visiting Pembroke Lumber Kings in Game 5 of the best-ofseven series, 8-3. Coach Jason Clarke was all smiles during the on-ice celebrations and when asked how this year’s championship feels compared to last, he said, “It feels the same… winning is winning. But the best part about this is how we were disrespected by Pembroke in our home opener, and you know what? The hockey gods were shining on us, that’s for sure… there’s no doubt about that. That is what I am really proud about.” Clarke added that Pembroke “is a very good hockey club.” The Canadians were put to the test early in the contest as Pembroke came out desperate for the win and were able to keep the score knotted at one each after first frame. In the second, a barrage of four goals in the first seven minutes gave the Canadians the punch and the momentum needed to carry through to the end. Much of that firepower and tenacity came from this year’s playoff MVP, Andy Sturtz, who parlayed for a three-point game with two goals and an assist. “We played great,” Sturtz said. “We came out and did what we had to do. Our eyes focused on the next game, the next shift. We came in today and knew Pembroke was going to give us their best game and we felt they gave it to us good in the first two periods and we just stuck to the game plan and figured out a way to win.” On the MVP win, he had this to say: “It’s actually funny. Me and Stephen Baylis have pushed each other for the past two years since we’ve been here and to swap trophies (Baylis won it last year)… he’s pushed me. We have pushed each other all year… we make each other better players.” Sturtz was quick to praise his team on their efforts throughout, not only this series, but during the season. “You see that push all the way from the captain (Baylis) all the way down the line… he’s a great leader; he shows us ways to win.” Caught in the emotion of it all after the game, Sturtz said he couldn’t explain the prowess behind this year’s team. “We just keep finding ways to win. It is just like last year… this team has a great future.” Sturtz said this year’s team is a hard-working one. “We work so hard… we have done it all year. Right now, we’re going to live in the moment. But come next week, it’s back to work, back to the Fred Page Cup and where we were last year.” On keeping the momentum going as they head to Cornwall next week, Sturtz said they just have to remain focused. “We’re just going to keep to Clarke’s game plan. We’ve got pucks in deep, we grind it out, we know we’re in good shape. We’re deep… we’ve got four lines, six defense. We have guys that we can rely on down the line and not have

World-class show jumping returns to the Nation’s Capital with the new Ottawa International scheduled for June 17 to 21 at Wesley Clover Parks in Ottawa. Conveniently located at the Moodie Drive exit off the 417 highway, Wesley Clover Parks brings equestrian sport to the heart of Ottawa. Formerly the Nepean National Equestrian Park, the multifaceted recreational facility has undergone a major transformation since being under new management. Wesley Clover Parks will launch the Ottawa International as the first major show jumping tournament to be held in Ottawa since 2011. “Ottawa has a great legacy of top quality show jumping, and we are so happy to be bringing the sport back to the community,” said Karen Sparks, executive director of Wesley Clover Parks. “Ian Millar and Jill Henselwood, both Olympic medalists in show jumping, call the Ottawa area home. I am excited to have a venue where they can showcase their talent in front of a home audience. I think a major show jumping tournament is something that’s been missed by the local community, as they have always been so supportive of our sport,” Sparks said. “We have a world-class grass arena to jump on at Wesley Clover Parks, and now we are bringing back a world-class show jumping event.” Ten-time Olympian Ian Millar of Perth has been one of the advisors throughout the transformative process, and is extremely supportive of the efforts being made by Wesley Clover Parks to launch the new Ottawa International event. “This is my sport and this is my hometown, and I could not be more pleased to see show jumping being showcased once again in Ottawa,” said Millar, who set a world record by making his 10th Olympic appearance at the 2012 London Olympics. “What Wesley Clover Parks is doing has many

Little Ray’s Reptiles filled one of the classrooms with critters; children’s art work was on display and a yard sale was held in the gym. There were also vendors with their goods for sale, just in time to find something special for mother’s day. Upstairs, an animation video, prepared by students thanks to a bursary from MASC’s Crabtree Foundation, played on a loop for parents to enjoy.

Perth Saltos Gymnastics soars at international qualifying competition kayleen.j.preston@gmail.com

Jumps, tricks and music proved to be a triple threat Saturday for the Perth Saltos Aerobic Gymnastics team. All 12 of their national athletes qualified to go to internationals in San Diego in July. Over the weekend Saltos hosted an Invitational Training Camp for their girls and the Hamilton World Class Gymnastics aerobic team. The weekend began Friday with a training session, followed by a jam packed Saturday. The girls began the international qualifier at 9 a.m. and continued to noon. Those who made it through were able to work one on one with the judges to help the athletes learn what to improve on before the international competition. The weekend ended Saturday night with a dinner at Code’s Mill. In previous years, the group had to fly to Washington, D.C. to be able to participate in the international qualifications. But, beginning last year, Saltos coach Louise Miller decided to try something new to help save money for the group. “Last year what we decided to do was fly the judges to us. It was about half the price, and we have a full event for the weekend. The Hamilton team comes as well as they try to qualify some girls as well.” The coaches this year included Lynne Smiley from Hamilton, Holly Abraham from Mississauga, and Dale Duncan from Atlanta, Georgia. All of who are very active in aerobic gymnastics indifferent ways. Duncan was a former competitor who has won 14 medals, worked as a one on one coach for over 300 athletes, and earned his judges brevet in Austria. He has judged many competitions across the globe, including the Suzuki World Cup in Japan. Abraham has been very active in many aspects of judging, and has been a part of the development of the three levels of the FIG Academy of Coaches. Currently she is the Senior Manager of Sport of the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games organizing committee and the President of the Sport Leadership Group. Smiley is chair of the Aerobics Working Group and Technical Committee allowing her to be a big part of the

sport from the beginning. She has writing manuals and guidelines for aerobic gymnastics as well. She is working on preparations for Ontario’s first National Aerobics Invitational in Oakville June 5 to 7, 2015. The weekend event was also successful for the Hamilton group whose sevenperson aerodance team, and three other individuals also qualified for the international competition. The two groups are very close, and will be traveling together to San Diego. “These teams are the only two teams for aerobic gymnastics across Canada right now,” explained Miller. “So we come together as often as we can, and bring the athletes together as often as we can, because they need to build each other up.” World Class Gymnastics only joined aerobic gymnastics two years ago, but is very proud of how their team has grown and to be a part of aerobic gymnastics with the Perth Saltos. “We are happy to be here, we are looking for more opportunities like this. So we are very happy that Perth found us,” owner of World Class Gymnastics Cristina Bontas-Tanaru said. The group is also connected since one of the coaches of the Hamilton group, Kasey Whalen, is formally from the Saltos team. “It’s good to see everybody like, I grew up with half these Perth girls, and then I get to see these little munchkins grow up and see how much better they did from last year to this year. It’s the best thing in the world,” Whalen said about being back in her home gym. Overall the weekend was a victory for all who were involved. Miller hopes to make this training weekend an annual event in the future. Good luck to all athletes who qualified when they travel to San Diego in July.

Guests enjoy afternoon of jazz music at Perth Manor Kayleen Preston

Toes were tapping the afternoon of April 19, as the Perth Manor hosted “In a Jazzy Manor” featuring the music styles of Steve Barrett (drums), Don Paterson (trumpet/flugelhorn), Dave Arthur (bass), and Art Lawless (piano). The dining hall was filled with beautiful songs including: My Little Suede Shoes by Charlie Parker, Dream a Little Dream by Fabian Andre, Wilbur Schuand and Gus Kahn. The group also played an audience request of On the Sunny Side of the Street by Frank Sinatra. Arthur described the final choices for songs as the group meeting in the middle. They came together and discussed different songs, and from there they decided which songs were “playable” and enjoyable for the crowd. During intermission, guests were able to have a glass of Argento white wine or Fatini Farnese red wine. Following the end of the show, they indulged their taste buds in selection of hors d’oeuvres served by owner Gordon Craig. Smoked salmon as well as a sweet potato, ginger, maple soup in a shot glass dressed with a crisp sweet potato, and onion, cheese and bacon bites, known as Mary Vikers. The manor was a new area for some guests including Arthur, who walked in the first time and saw the high ceilings and immediately wanted to see more of the building. Ted Miller, who is friends with one of the musicians, was also experiencing his first time at the manor. “I’ve lived

in this area 14 years,” he said. “First time into the manor, it’s a lovely resident inn. I’m really impressed with it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone. We’re very lucky to have it here in Perth.” Though it was a new experience for some, for others like Diane Burgess, it brought back memories. The last time she was at the manor was 20 years ago for a family Thanksgiving. What brought her back today was to hear her brother-in-law, Barrett, play with the other musicians. “I sit in often when [Barrett’s group] plays at The Swan in Carp, so my sister told me about this at the Perth Manor, so I decided to come,” Burgess said. “It’s a different set [here] then we hear at the pub when people are talking. This is more focused just on the music, which is nice. It gives you a chance to appreciate it quite a bit.” The afternoon was enjoyed by all as the audience and musicians swayed to the beat, and laughed as Arthur joked around about the band. The group had decided to come to the Perth Manor after Barrett was a guest this past New Year’s. From there, Barrett worked with owners Linda and Gordon Craig, and the other musicians to get ready for today. Barrett wanted to have the best musicians, and said he felt he achieved that, and the show was a great success. The Perth Manor’s next event will be a classical music afternoon for Mother’s Day.

1949 Prefect is a perfect blend of old and new automobiles 17 trophies out of 19 shows. Claude made most of the missing parts himself. The car has been rebuilt as a restorod with a 350 Chev V8 crate engine and 700R4 transmission. The front wheels are 15-inch and rear wheels 17-inch to give the car a slight rake. The Mustang II front end provides independent front suspension. The body has been channeled over the custom-built frame and the entire car has been repainted a dazzling Sea Moss Green. The first time out, Claude’s car won Best of Show at the Canadian Street Rod Nationals held in nearby LaSalle, Ontario. At another show the same year, his car won People’s Choice. At this rate of winning, we predict that Claude will soon have to build extra shelves in his garage to accommodate all the trophies. And this car is driven, not trailered.

Last summer, the car travelled 4,000 kilometres (2,500 miles) to car shows and cruise nights, including Sarnia and the ones held regularly at the Canadian Transportation Museum at nearby Heritage Village (519-776-6909). Submitted photo On the wall is a blue-onwhite 1949 Ontario licence Claude Dube’s 1949 Prefect looks stock from the outside until you look at the wheels and plate (A6569). Claude wanted the exhaust outlets below the rear doors. to mount this on his car but was told that number is currently registered. He found another pair of 1949 plates (68K96) and mounted them on his car, made legal by YOM (Year of Manufacture) legislation. I’m always looking for more stories.

The British-built 1949 Ford Prefect owned by Claude and Irene Dube of Harrow, Ontario, is an awesome award-winning street rod. Claude’s wife Irene found the car in Amherstburg in 2006. It needed a lot of work and this would be Claude’s first experience at building a street rod. The transformation took seven years. He repaired the front fenders, hood, and inner fenders, made new running boards, added one inch to the rear fenders, frenched in the licence plate and a pair of 1932 Ford taillights, reskinned the trunk lid, and reworked the shape of the doors to fit the openings. He fabricated a new floor and tunnel, tubbed the rear wheels, raised the trunk floor for the custom gas tank, built a new fabricated frame, and installed a custom Mustang II front end with coilovers and sway bar. Claude cut 21 inches off the 9-inch Ford rear end, installed Bear axles, a 4-link setup with panbar and coilovers, and a rear sway bar. He also installed a custom interior, complete with coffee cup holder! Now finished, it has won

Time is running out to nominate an Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) employee for the 2015 Trustee Innovation Award. People have until April 30 to file nomination papers for the awards program, which will honour UCDSB employees whose innovation in the workplace can take us all to higher levels of achievement. “The school year is just about over,” warned trustee Caroll Carkner. “During the school presentations at our board meetings we’ve heard about, or seen videos about, all sorts of innovative employees in our schools, so why not nominate them for the Trustee Innovation Award.” Carkner stressed the board wants to recognize employees from a wide range of areas including: custodians who may have developed new work practices to save time, superintendents who have developed new programs to help engage our students, educational assistants who have found new ways to use technology to enhance student learning, and teachers experimenting with creative ways to engage students.

point of the hitch’s receiver. You’ll know if you’ve chosen wisely if the trailer and vehicle sit relatively level and the trailer’s tongue doesn’t have to ‘reach high’ or ‘sit low’ when hooked up and loaded. If you will be towing different trailers with different ride heights, you can purchase an adjustable ball mount adapter that lets you change the height of the ball. Receiver type hitches come with 2 sizes of receiver; 1.25” by 1.25” or 2.0” by 2.0”.  If you have a choice, go with the larger opening because most bike, ski, and cargo rack adapters that fit into a receiver hitch use that size. If you’re tired of listening to the clacks and clunks (caused by the tolerance between the hitch’s receiver and the ballmount adapter) that occur when towing a trailer, you can purchase a relatively inexpensive sleeve to fit inside the receiver to take up the slack and eliminate the noise. When it comes to adding trailer wiring to your vehicle, check with your dealership or service provider first before cutting into the rear lamp wiring to attach the trailer plug.  Most vehicles today use sensitive electronic controls for rear lights and splicing in a trailer connector can lead to a host of troubles. Most vehicles require some type of electronic adapter to avoid this and it’s included with a properly spec’d trailer wiring harness. While installing a hitch doesn’t take a degree in engineering, it can be challenging, especially without a hoist.  Many vehicles require complete or partial bumper cover removal to do the job along with temporarily lowering the rear part of the exhaust system.  Most hitches come with attaching hardware but some require you to use some existing bolts in the vehicle’s rear frame rails. Unless your vehicle is brand new, you’ll need to spray some penetrating oil on these bolts before trying to carefully and slowly remove them. If you pull out any threads from the nuts that are welded inside a closed frame rail, you can’t bolt up the hitch.  When choosing a hitch ball, make sure its shank or threaded portion fits the hold on the ball mount adapter exactly with no slop.  If you install a ball with too small a shank it will move inside the hole and wear and come loose.

With spring comes another season; travel time. For most it means planning warm weather road trips with family and friends, some camping and cottaging, some sightseeing, and hopefully a lot of great memories. For automotive retailers and repair shops it also means trailer hitch season and while a lot hasn’t changed with the design and construction of most trailer hitches, much has changed with today’s vehicles, therefore before you hook up there are a few things you should know. Hitches are rated by the amount of weight they can tow and the amount of vertical weight on the ball they can withstand (known as tongue weight). Both are important figures and if a trailer is loaded correctly it should apply about 10 per cent of its gross weight (combined weight of trailer and gear) as a down-force on the hitch ball.  It’s easy math; a 2,000 lb trailer should deliver about 200 lb of weight at its tongue.  Having less or more than this can drastically affect vehicle and trailer handling. Class I hitches are rated for up to 2,000 lb, Class II; up to 3,500 lb, Class III; up to 5,000 lb, Class IV up to 12,000 lb. After that you’re into fifth wheel and gooseneck hitches mounted on a pick-up truck bed’s floor and pinned securely to the frame. You might not necessarily hear or read much about various hitch classes anymore because their importance has been eclipsed by the most important rating of all; the vehicle’s towing capacity. Today, almost no compact or subcompact car is rated to tow anything by their manufacturers.  This is a departure from the status quo of as little as 10 years ago when even small cars were rated to tow up to 2,000 lb.  The penchant for lighter vehicle components and smaller engines has pretty much taken the tow out of small cars.  Even mid and full-size sedans have surprisingly low towing capacities.  Before considering any type of trailer hitch, check your vehicle’s owner’s manual or manufacturer.  Most U.S. based auto manufacturer websites are easier to use when it comes to finding towing capacities; use .com instead of .ca.  If your vehicle is still under factory warranty and has no tow-rating, taking it in for a warranty repair with a trailer hitch attached is just asking for disappointment. The most common type of hitch sold today is the receiver or hidden-hitch type. These units attach to the vehicle’s rear frame rails and have a square opening at the centre (just below the bumper) where a ball-mount adapter slides in and is attached with a removable pin.  Few of these hitches are sold with the ballmount adapter because there are just too many variables with regards to trailer tongue heights. Some adapters come straight out, some have a rise, and some have a drop to accommodate different trailer designs.  The best way to know which one you’ll need is to get the hitch installed first and then back up to the trailer on a level grade and raise the trailer’s tongue to a point that keeps it level. Then with someone duplicating the effect of the tongue’s weight on the vehicle (by sitting on the bumper) measure the required rise or drop from the centre

The Station Theatre in Smiths Falls continues its run of the Agatha Christie classic, Love from a Stranger, this week April 24 to 26.

The intensity of the performance in Agatha Christie’s Love from a Stranger at the Station Theatre in Smiths Falls is impressive. By the beginning of the third act audiences are on the edge of their seats and holding their breath in collective shock as the ending draws near. The cast of Love from a Stranger truly come together to put on a show that leaves audiences wanting to see it again and again. Cecily Harrington (Katharine Coleman) is suddenly a wealthy young woman, and also engaged to be married to a man she has not seen in three years. We meet her as she begins to question her plans, and is asking her fiance Nigel (Jerry Logan) for a postponement of the wedding, much to the dismay of her indomitable and fussy Aunt Louise (Joni Thornley).
