Last Duel Park out of contention as potential dog park location - for now By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

Join the biggest cancer event to

News – A proposal to locate Perth’s future dog park at Last Duel Park has been taken off of the table for now. Mayor John Fenik said he wanted to see “more research as to where it should go,” once the $40,000 required for the project is collected through fundraising, he said at town council’s committee-of-the-whole meeting on Tuesday, May 20. Fenik expressed support for having the dog park at Conlon Farm, which, at 50 acres, was “a bank canvas there.” Coun. Jim Boldt agreed with the mayor’s

assessment. “I don’t think we should be mentioning a location at this time,” said Boldt. “Last Duel Park tends to be very wet. It’s very low lying land,” even near the sewage pumping station where the park was proposed to be placed. On top of this, there was also the issue of barking dogs causing an annoyance for nearby campers. “If I have a camper at Last Duel Park, I don’t think I would want a dog park in my back yard,” Boldt said. However, Boldt did add that “I support the concept of a dog park.” See DOG PARK page P5

Business – The Town of Perth is considering a new tax credit program that would let businesses improve their facilities, and then get a break on their municipal taxes once their properties’ values are reassessed. Speaking before Perth town council’s committee-of-thewhole meeting on Tuesday, May 13, Jeff Dean stressed just how important the community improvement plan had been at maintaining the historic, heritage look of the downtown core. The sign and façade program had helped along 33 projects over the past three years. Two new projects, at 77 Gore St. E., and 30 North St., are ongoing, but Dean presented a plan to council to expand this program beyond just dealing with exterior, cosmetic issues. Under the plan, if a company carried out extensive renovations to its property that would see its municipal taxes jump from $20,000 a year to $100,000 a year, in order to ease that burden of increased assessment, the $80,000 jump would be waived the first year after the renovations. Thereafter, the businesses’ taxes would increase incrementally, with the business keeping $64,000 of the $80,000 the second year, $48,000 the third year, $32,000 the fourth year, $16,000 the fifth year, before reaching zero in the final year. “It is a rebate,” said Dean. “If you get one building to do it, you are way ahead. There is no taxpayer money involved. It is all business money going back to them,” he explained. Similar programs have been used in other Ontario towns like Timmins and Cornwall, where their program has been running for five years, and restored about 100 buildings. “Let’s try it and see if it works,” said Dean. “The time to act is now. It is a no-brainer.” Council will now consider adding this aspect to the im-

provement plan’s terms of reference. Dean hastened to add that the project “has to be pretty substantive. These are big projects.” Coun. Jim Boldt applauded the new program since, if he were a small business owner, “I am not going to pay any substantial taxes on this, when I pour this money into my property, for the next four years. You start seeing a benefit to the town taxpayer in year two.” Coun. Jim Graff agreed that “this is a really great project… We are talking about some serious dollars here. It will bring new business, in which every small community needs.”

“This is a really great project. We are talking about some serious dollars here.” COUN. JIM GRAFF

However, Mayor John Fenik had concerns: “What if improvements exceed market value?” John deRosenroll, the town’s chief administrative officer, called himself a “total convert to this,” in discussions with Dean and others on this file. “They proved to myself that our specific risk as a town is limited.” Coun. Judy Brown called the tax credits “a natural follow-up,” to the façade program. “The façade program has been a huge success,” she said, though this would go a long way towards dealing with everything from roofs to building interiors, the less glamorous, but necessary long-term renovations every building needs. “The façade program has been a huge success,” added Brown. Shellee Evans, the director of community services, predicted that about one to five businesses per year would take part in this project.

ing that society seemed to view sexual assault differently from other crimes. “If you run a red light, there is no doubt that you (the red-light runner) are at fault,� Lee told the students. “If you are sexually assaulted, it is no longer clear if you are worthy of being a victim.�

Miss representation Lee was speaking at a conference supported not only by Interval House, but also by the Perth and Almonte Civitan Clubs. Funding was also provided by the Perth and District Community Foundation, and the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital. “There was an overwhelming desire for us to be able to point out how media and society influence messaging to all genders about how they should behave, react, dress,� Lee said. “We are being socialized that a woman is not seen as a human being, it is what she looks like,� that matters. The day started off with word association, with Lee shouting out, “Slut,� and the students responding with “whore.�

“I said, ‘ghetto,’ they said, ‘poor,’� she said, as another example. The conference was a way to “challenge them to shift the way we think about things.� One student told the crowd that she had already started to challenge society’s accepted gender norms. “I don’t believe in gender roles,� said Hayley Fortier of Carleton Place High School. “I don’t believe that, for a woman, you need to behave a certain way. I am not defined by my gender. I am a human with a soul. That’s all that defines me. It’s not your gender that makes you who you are. It is your soul.� A large “Slut Walk� banner had been rolled out on the back table for participants to add their voice to the issue, with many students writing down their feelings. “Just because you dress a way does not mean you deserve anything bad,� wrote Alicia Ray. “Dress how you want,� wrote Nicole Davies. “Be who you are. Stay strong! Be proud to be a woman! You are beautiful, no matter what.� “You know who you are and what type of person you are and that’s all that matters,� wrote Claudia Sarbutt, a student from the T.R. Leger School in Carleton Place.

News – The head of Interval House of Lanark County has defended coupling the county’s first-ever “Slut Walkâ€? with the annual “Take Back the Nightâ€? rally. “We didn’t feel like doing a Slut Walk just on its own,â€? said Erin Lee, the executive director of the women’s shelter, during an interview at the Perth Civitan Club hall on Wednesday, May 14, during a conference for teenagers on building positive female images. “We are a community where change happens slowly.â€? The joint walk will take place on Sept. 26 in front of the Carleton Place town hall, but even the “Take Back the Nightâ€? rally took a long time to reach the level of acceptance that it has in the county, said Lee. “It took a long time to get people on side,â€? she said. “It takes time.â€? During the inaugural walk, about 75 walkers showed up. Now, more than 200 walkers assemble every fall on Mill Street. “If you just go ahead and do a slut walk, people won’t understand it.â€? Plans are afoot to for a stand-alone “Slut Walk,â€? in the summer of 2015, which will be “about saying ‘I can dress as I want‌and no one should be able to sexually assault me.â€? The “Slut Walk,â€? phenomena has its origins in Toronto in 2011. The Excalibur student newspaper at York University reported that, on Jan. 24 of that year, a member of the Toronto Police Service was heard to suggest that women could avoid sexual assaults by not dressing like a “slutâ€? during a campus safety information session at the Osgoode Hall law school at York. The comments then spawned a “Slut Walkâ€? where women and their supporters intentionally dressed provocatively that spring. For the Carleton Place walk though, “we would encourage people participating in the Slut Walk (to dress) in a way that represents them. If drag is that, be that. Dress however you want,â€? Lee said. She added that a sexual predator, who is on the hunt for a woman to assault, is going to be looking for any opportunity to commit his crime – not looking for someone wearing revealing clothing. “How do we deal with predators, people who are on the street?â€? asked Lee. She added that women not only need to be told how not to get raped, but that men should also be told the message

Cyclists, walkers, local government to ride into Active Transportation Summit May 29-30 tlepack@perfprint.ca

Community – Active transportation will re-define how communities are shaped, in the future, to ensure that everyone can maintain a good quality of life. The first-ever Eastern Ontario Active Transportation summit is set for May 29 and 30 at Almonte Old Town Hall, to showcase ideas and success stories about making communities more bike-able and walk-able through trails, sidewalks, parks and pathways. Jeff Mills, co-ordinator community development at Mills Community Support, thinks it is time to change what a complete street is. “The time has come, in hopefully age-friendly communities, where we are designing roads that work for all road users and we are not designing roads for cars. Roads are there for a reason, to move people,” said Mills, one of the organizers of the summit. “Some of those people are not in cars, they are trying to get across the street in a walker, and trying to cycle to school because we keep telling kids they need to be more active.” Mills thinks people need to re-think how and where people build roads. “In many countries because of the cost of fuel you don’t even think about getting into your car unless it’s a long distance, they plan for that quality of life,” said Mills. “Roads are the connecting life blood of the community, they

should work for more than just cars.” The summit has been organized by a number of local organizations who have an interest in active transportation including: the counties of Lanark and Renfrew, including Healthy Communities Partnership, Leeds Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, Mills Community Support, the Town of Mississippi Mills, Mississippi Mills Bicycle Month, Renfrew County Physical Activities Network, Canada Walks, Ontario by Bike and Share the Road. Danielle Shewfelt, public health nurse in the healthy living and development department with the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit thinks the agenda is large enough that it will interest a number of different people. “For business people we want to say making your business friendly to walkers and cyclists is going to be a benefit to you, you’re going to get more people coming to your business,” said Shewfelt. “For the residents it’s really about having a safe and healthy environment to walk and bike from one place to the other.” Mississippi Mills Coun. John Edwards thinks it is a unique opportunity for council members because active transportation is a key part of its community official plan. “This kind of thing is bringing ideas from outside our municipality to eastern Ontario. People from all

across Ontario that can bring ideas of how we can actually implement active transportation in our municipality,” said Edwards. “We are also going to do a very expensive master transportation plan for Mississippi Mills and active transportation is going to be a key part of what the consultants are going to do.” They think they are only going to deal with trucks and cars but we want them to look at where are the bicycles in Mississippi Mills are going to go,” he said. Shewfelt adds that it is important for local municipalities to attend because they are the ones who control the purse strings. “It’s a good opportunity to get together with the other players, residents and businesses to see which part each of us play in making that happen,” said Shewfelt. “They (municipalities) are the ones who are in charge of the budget and the design and all of those aspects so we really need to partner so they can take full advantage of what has been done.” There is a wide array of speakers at the event covering a number of different topics. On May 29, the keynote speaker is Marlaine Koehler, executive director of the Waterfront Regeneration Trust, who has spent the past 15 years developing and managing the innovative partnership that has made a dramatic contribution towards the regeneration of the Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River waterfront. Also speaking that day are: Sue Shikaze from Building Capacity for Rural Transportation, Kate Hall, Walk Friendly Ontario, Mike Dwyer, Designing Trails with Nature in Mind, Don Palmer, Community Bike Share programs, and Nancy Smith

Green Party candidate supports merged school boards, carbon tax installed by your neighbours.” Climate change is an issue that has long been a major issue for his party, and he points out that the effects are being felt right here in Lanark County. “Climate change is starting to affect our ability to grow food and sustain ourselves,” he said of the riding. “We are at a tipping point with the climate. When people in Lanark County can’t tap maple syrup, that’s when people will see it.” After the drought of 2012, restrictions were already being placed on tapping, he said, and this past winter, with its brutal weather, has already put a strain on maple syrup production.

Cam Mather for electricity. While he commended the Liberals’ Green Energy Act, he noted that, for him, it did not go far enough. “If you had put a price on carbon (instead), people would not have put up solar panels,” he said. “they would have let the market decide.” His party is proposing putting the money raised from a tax on carbon emissions into a trust fund, “so that the government cannot get its hands on it. We will even put it into the hands of a third party,” if need be, he said. Once the money is in the account, each Ontarian would get a “dividend cheque,” which, it is hoped, would then be spent on carbon-neutral heating like wood-burning stoves, geothermal heating, and the like. “We are letting the marketplace decide,” Mather said. “Even Conservatives will love that!” he said with a laugh. “It makes you less reliant on government.” He practices what he preaches. “I live off of the grid, but I live a typical, North American lifestyle,” he said. He also pointed to ground-source heat pumps and other efficient heating methods as improvements that can save money and resources – and which can be sourced locally. “That (heat pumps) are not something you can import from China…those are

Lanark County Getaway Contest winner announced News – Lanark County Tourism is thrilled to announce the winner of the Lanark County Getaway Contest – a couple from Edmonton, Alberta! Steve and Angela were randomly selected as the winners of a $1,000 trip to the Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario, simply by choosing their ideal vacation in Lanark County. “The concept of the contest was to have people choose their own adventure in Lanark County,” explains Lanark County Tourism manager Marie White. “We have tools on our website at www. lanarkcountytourism.ca that give people the chance to plan their trip by choosing where they would like to stay, eat and play. Designing the custom tour acted as a ballot to enter the contest.” Steve says he and his wife stumbled on the contest while looking to relocate to Lanark County and enjoy the cottage lifestyle. Steve is seeking a change of pace and wants to run his own business. At the same time, Angela discovered family connections nearby, and is looking forward to a reunion with

a long-lost sister. Steve and Angela will work with Lanark County Tourism experts to maximize the value of their $1,000 getaway to their preferred restaurants, accommodations and attractions. The contest was offered in collaboration with travel writer Lucy Izon and the Ottawa Citizen.

While he is realistic about his party’s chances, he remains adamant that “there is an alternative to the traditional three parties.” Personally, “I have been selfemployed since 1987 so I am a perpetual optimist, but I am a realist.” One of his ventures is a communitysupported agricultural farm at his Tamworth home, which now helps feed about 40 families. The families pay into the system, and receive a basket of vegetables and berries for about 16 weeks each year. (This is the second in our ongoing series of articles profiling candidates in the Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington riding in the run-up to the Thursday, June 12 provincial election).

News – The Green Party candidate for Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington is defending his party’s platform, which includes a proposal to merge the public and Catholic school systems. During a telephone interview from his Tamworth home, near Kingston, on Wednesday, May 14, Cam Mather stated that the proposed policy – which has been dismissed by the other three mainline parties – would save not only taxpayer money, but also the environment too. “Right now, we have this crazy system where we are subsidizing one system that is, essentially, private,” he said of the Catholic system. Ontario Green Party leader Mike Schreiner had floated the idea at his party’s platform launch the day before in Toronto, saying it would save the province at least $1.2 billion a year. But for Mather, it goes beyond the money, since both school boards would often have two buses running along, essentially, the same routes, when a unified school board could pick up the same children, on the same route, with just one bus. While then-Progressive Conservative party leader John Tory discovered what a live wire the education issue could be in the 2007 provincial vote, a year later, federal Liberal leader Stephane Dion discovered just how volatile ideas like a carbon tax could be with the electorate. But for Mather, these ideas are part of what makes his party the true conscience in Ontario politics. “Isn’t it wonderful that we have a party that has the intestinal fortitude to do that?” he asked. “I’m not concerned about upsetting people any more.” The environmentally-minded Greens once more have a carbon tax front and centre in their platform, which flew in the 2011 vote under the rhyming motto that the party would tax people “on what they burn, not what they earn.” On the carbon tax, Mather admitted that he understood that people were upset about rising energy costs, especially

over climate change. “That’s Randy’s business,” he said, at first, but, later in the conversation, noted that “97 per cent of scientists believe that the train is about to go over the cliff. The scary thing is that Randy is siding with the three per cent. To say that this is something that we can ignore…is frustrating.” Mather won his party’s nomination about a year ago, and while the party is focused on following the example of their federal cousins, in getting their leader, elected to the House of Commons through a seat in British Columbia, the Ontario Greens are focused on getting Schreiner elected in the Guelph area.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Children’s summer camp’s annual open house June 21 DEAR EDITOR: Much has been written about the sedentary life style that Canadian children have adopted with their iPads, iPods, iPhones, etc. Concerns have been raised about the “nature deficit” that young people are experiencing. What may not be known is that there exists nearby a little slice of heaven where children escape technology and are immersed in a close knit, active and social community close to nature, where they are accepted as they are. It’s called Camp Lau-Ren, a children’s residential summer camp of the United Church of Canada where all children are welcome. Located just 10 kilometres west of Deep River on Highway 17W at 210 Lau-Ren Rd. in the Township of Laurentian Hills, Camp Lau-Ren offers two,

three and six night co-ed camps for children aged six to 15, including a three-night family camp night for all ages. Lau-Ren is accredited by the Ontario Camps Association. It’s not too late to send a kid to camp. Visit www.camplau-ren.com for more information and come to our annual open house on Saturday, June 21 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a free barbecued hotdog, dessert, and s’mores. You can tour the site, see a camper’s cabin, check the beach and enjoy songs and skits around a campfire. We hope to see you there! Bruce Patterson Secretary, Camp Lau-Ren board Carleton Place

COMMENTARY

Voting is a right Editorial – More and more of those colourful election signs continue to dot the landscape throughout Lanark, Leeds and Grenville and serve as a constant reminder that yes, another provincial election is upon us. Elections are arguably one of the most exciting times for a newspaper. There are candidates to profile and meetings to attend, all with the goal of providing the public with the information to make a more informed decision on Thursday, June 12. The right to vote is one that we should all take very seriously. It’s our way to make change happen and try to make a difference. However, that number has steadily been on the decline since 1990. According to Elections Ontario, voter turnout in the last provincial election in 2011 stood at just 48.2 per cent, compared to 2007’s figure of 52.1 per cent. Back in 1995, 63 per cent of eligible voters cast their ballots. Why is that? Is it the aging population who doesn’t believe their vote matters, or perhaps the younger generation, who have just earned the right to vote, isn’t engaged enough with provincial politics? If it’s the latter, the problem is surely to get worse and voter turnout will continue to decline. With the Internet and social media, information is more readily available than ever before so there’s no excuse for young people to be complacent about politics, whether it be federal, provincial or municipal. Those who choose not to vote, shouldn’t be able to complain about the outcome afterwards either. We are all given an amazing gift in our ability to vote, let’s make sure that on June 12, we use it.

The minister was a bit like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Lifestyle – The minister, I thought, was like two different people. I had an unbelievable fear of him when he was in church delivering what seemed to be an endless sermon with words that were completely above my head. I had no idea what he was talking about, and when we left the service to go to our Sunday school class, I lived in dread that the Sunday school teacher would ask me what I had learned that day from the sermon. Thankfully she was high on the Beatitudes and the Psalms, and that was usually what our lesson was about. The minister was a whale of a man, and when he walked down the middle of the church to get to the pulpit, his shoes squeaked like fury, which Emerson said meant they hadn’t been paid for. How he knew that bit of information was beyond me. By the time the minister had climbed into the pulpit which was a round carved wood affair high above the pews, he was panting like he was going to take his last breath, and winter and summer, the sweat poured off his face in little rivulets. He frowned a lot, and I always thought he was angry with the lot of us, or that he knew that some of us had committed

some horrible sin. And to emphasize a point, he pounded the rail of the pulpit with his bible that I was sure would one day fly out of his hand and hit me square on the head since we sat in the front pew, a few feet away. His wife, whom Mother said was a saint...a pure saint, sat ramrod straight, looking neither left nor right. Through perfect planning, Sunday school always ended at the exact time the last hymn was being sung in the church. Then we children marched back into the church, standing at the door where we were expected to shake hands with the minister. This scared the living starch out of me, convinced that he could read my mind and he would know every evil thought I had ever had in my head about bad Marguirite, and know ever sin I had ever committed. I couldn’t wait to get in the buggy and get back home to the farm. And often then, I would see another side to our minister. I wasn’t sure if it was part of his duties as our spiritual leader, or if he just liked a good meal occasionally, but we could always count on a pastoral visit at least once every two weeks when the summer weather came.

a buggy, and an old nag of a horse that was much like our poor old Harry with the heaves. You could have walked in our lane faster than the minister’s horse pulling the buggy! And he always came at our dinnertime at the noon hour. Mother would pump his hand, welcome him in, and my sister Audrey, without even being asked, would scrunch up the plates on the table, and make room for another place. Mother made no effort to tidy things up, or make the meal more fancy. We didn’t even get out the dishes that had come in puffed wheat. The only change was Mother sat between my sister Audrey and me, leaving the end of the table for the Minister. Father, of course, sat where he always did, at the other end. And instead of Father saying Grace, the minister, on Mother’s invitation said News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Howaida Sorour, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Tiffany Lepack, Laura Armstrong DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-283-3182 ,ext. 138 CLASSIFIED/REGIONAL ROUNDUP 613-283-3182 Judy Michaelis x122 email: jmichaelis@theemc.ca Cheryl Code x133 email: cheryl.code@metroland.com Fax: 613-283-5909

the blessing, which was long and purposeful. Then I would see an entirely different man from the one I saw in the Lutheran church on Sunday. He and Father told jokes, slapping the table with the palm of their hands, and all the time, he was amply lading his plate with seconds and even third helpings of everything before him, which pleased Mother beyond words. Even a visitor the stature of the minister, didn’t stop Father from pouring out his tea into his saucer to cool it off, and then drinking it. And as soon as the meal was over, Father got up from the table, minister or not, and headed back out to the fields. Always, I knew what was going to happen next. Audrey would be sent to the smoke house and the chicken coop. She would come back with a roast and a link or two of sausages, and a small basket of fresh eggs. Everett would, without asking, have cornered a fowl, pushed it squawking into a grain sack, and everything would be put in the minister’s buggy. The minister would pump Mother’s hand, ruffle my hair, tell Audrey again how she was growing into a fine young ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES MANAGER Andrea McMurtry 613-283-3182 x169 SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988

woman, and my three brothers that he would see them in church, and then with great effort he would climb into the buggy, and the old horse without any direction from his owner, would turn in the yard and head out the lane. Audrey and I would help Mother redd up the kitchen and she would tell us how poor the minister was, and how little he was paid, and that often he and his wife didn’t have enough money to buy food, and how they would rely on the generosity of the members of the Lutheran church to survive. I knew the Depression was all around us, but I didn’t know anyone out in the country who didn’t have enough food for their table. I would watch the buggy disappear into the farthest reaches of the lane, and I would think again how the minister was like two different people. The stern, nononsense man in the pulpit on a Sunday, and then there was the man who could laugh and mingle with the common folk around a kitchen table.

Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Studio Theatre held a Crazy Dinner fundraiser May 10 where diners ordered from a mystery menu. Above, some of the dozens of volunteers who helped make the dinner a huge success.

Studio Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crazy Dinner a wild success Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Was it crazy to think that people would support a community theatre fundraiser called a Crazy Dinner? Sure, crazy like a fox... Every single ticket was sold for the Studio Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crazy Dinner on May 10, thanks to tremendous organization, enthusiastic volunteers, and a town that simply loves its community theatre. The concept for the meal was hard to resist: diners ordered from a tantalizing mystery menu that kept them guessing, but always led to something delicious â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Caesar salad, gazpacho soup, salisbury steak, salmon, chicken, vegetarian lasagna, and four different delectable desserts. Entertainment was provided by the cast of the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming Little Women, The Musical,

directed by C. Lee Bates. Songs included â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here Aloneâ&#x20AC;? (sung by Julie Kevan), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Could You?â&#x20AC;? (Barb Guthrie, Courtney Mason), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Five Foreverâ&#x20AC;? (Courtney Mason, Kyle Booth, Lindsay Rewi, Mary Hills, Emma Houlahan) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;More Than I Amâ&#x20AC;? (Justin Hills, Mary Hills). There were also plenty of raffle items and door prizes, generously donated by local businesses, including a deluxe gas barbecue from Home Hardware, dinner for two from the Stone Cellar, a beautiful Gift basket from Julia Egener, an original Simon Koo Painting from Ute von Schall, and a restored Remembrance clock from Garnet Carswell. The food was subsidized by a generous donation from Barnabeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Your Independent Grocer.

Jean and Derek Cooke, the driving force behind the evening, have hosted Crazy Dinners many times before, but this was their biggest event ever â&#x20AC;&#x201C; dinner for 120! Obviously a lot of organization and creativity went into the planning, along with a dedicated team of servers and kitchen staff. When the last dessert had been enjoyed and the final prize awarded, more than $5,000 had been raised for the great work of Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community theatre. So a huge thank you goes out to everyone who attended, donated prizes, and worked so hard to make this event the crazy success that it was. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see what next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraiser will be! Submitted by the Studio Theatre.

Part One of a Four-Part Series

Fundraising key for local hospices to aid families of palliative patients By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Inside Ottawa Valley, comprised of The Carleton Place-Almonte Canadian Gazette, The Kemptville Advance, The Perth Courier and The Smiths Falls Record News, takes a look at palliative care services offered in Lanark Leeds and Grenville. Over the next four weeks, we’ll examine aspects of palliative care, like funding, caregivers’ roles, and helping loved ones through their final stages of life. This first installment talks about the palliative care services that are available. News – National Hospice Palliative Care Week may have kicked off the month of May with a variety of fundraisers, but money is needed all year long, not just during the spring. These fundraisers are an important part of palliative care services, because without the support of the communities, there would be limited services available to patients and their families as they live out their final days with dignity.

Palliative or end-of-life services in Canada have traditionally been provided at home until the care becomes so complicated or overwhelming that admission to hospital is required. “During the course of illness it is not unusual for a person to seek treatment in emergency rooms and/or to be admitted to hospital a number of times until they reach a point when they cannot be released due to the severity of illness or inability of their family to care for them at home,” said Doug Burt, member of the Community Home Support Lanark County board of directors. While some Canadians die at home, the majority of them spend their last days in hospital. This results in a great deal of stress for patients and families as well as unnecessary use of costly hospital beds for people who could be better managed at home or in a hospice. Smiths Falls, Perth and parts of Almonte/Carleton Place are located in the South East Local Health Integration Network (SELHIN) one of 14 LHINs in Ontario. SELHIN covers a huge

area from Prince Edward County in the South to the Hastings Highlands in the North and East to Edwardsburgh, Innisville, Montague, etc. Interestingly, Lanark County is split between SELHIN and Champlain LHIN which covers other parts of Carleton Place, Almonte and Kemptville and necessitates special arrangements between the two LHINs for some services. Within the communities and counties of SELHIN and Champlain LHIN, the need for palliative and other support services has long been understood. Consequently, communities acted to establish a variety of services. Some of these have been recognized and funded to some extent by the LHINs. Municipalities and county councils have provided funds for some services as well. Within the Perth and Smiths Falls corner of SELHIN, Community Home Support, Lanark County (CHSLC) provides a number of services including three palliative care services: the Volunteer Hospice Visiting Service, the Day Hospice and Bereavement Services.

Interlocking concrete is also a great choice for our harsh Canadian winters. The paver units’ joints help absorb any sort of frost-related movement, meaning that it is freeze and thaw resistant. With interlocking concrete, worrying about pavement damage is a thing of the past, and that’s particularly great considering how aesthetically pleasing interlocking concrete can be.

With some variations in the LHIN funding, this is the case for all hospice services across SELHIN and generally for all Ontario hospice services. While these programs are only partly funded by SELHIN it must be noted that SELHIN provides substantial funding to the Community Care Access Centres (CCAC) to provide nursing and personal support worker (PSW) support to clients in their homes as well as some equipment and medical supplies. These services combined with the hospice services provided by volunteers are intended to help clients remain at home and out of hospital as long as possible. The vast majority of palliative clients express the wish to be able to stay at home and to die surrounded by their loved ones. Over the past years many communities have looked at the role residential hospices play in some countries, for example in the United Kingdom where there is a longstanding tradition of

Inc.

It’s one of the most economical pavement options out there, especially when it comes to long-term care. That’s partly because interlocking pavement is low maintenance. That ease is something you can appreciate right from day one as interlocking concrete can be used immediately after it is installed. It is also reusable, too, which is great if you have to remove it to fix a pavement problem or to install utilities. With interlocking concrete, you can simply remove the pavement and reinstall it when the work is completed.

There are nine community hospice organizations across SELHIN. These hospice organizations have been achieving positive results by providing essential assistance to people with life-limiting and palliative diagnoses and to their families. These services include trained hospice volunteers who go to homes to provide respite opportunities for caregivers, usually a family member. The day hospices are places where clients can go to share their experiences with others having similar challenges. Day programs provide fun activities as well as invaluable psychosocial support to the clients and their families. Some clients say these programs provide them with an opportunity to forget they are sick. Most hospice services also provide bereavement services. Approximately 45 per cent of the cost of the palliative care programs provided by CHSLC is funded by SELHIN, the rest comes from the generosity of the community which recognizes the importance of these services.

Hub establishes hospice

Funding infusion Community – Tay River Reflections in Perth hosted a fashion show for Lanark County’s hospice palliative care services’ home support program last month. The $2,000 donation will help with general expenses, said Christa Dales Donnelly, representative of the hospice services. She is flanked by Patti Boyd, operations manager at the Tay River Train ‘N Transform (gym) and Dr. Manuela Joannou, owner of the spa and gym. Tay River Reflections is looking to host a similar annual event as a palliative care fundraiser.

HOSPICE From page 18

residential hospices for patients in their final weeks or days rather than admitting these patients to costly hospital beds. Across Canada there are many communities that have decided the needs of their loved ones are best met by community-based residential hospices once care at home is no longer feasible. There are some successful residential hospices, usually in larger towns and cities where there is a large base of citizens. However, Canada is made up of many small rural communities where it is difficult to find the funds to build and maintain residential hospices. Residential hospices are generally not funded and must depend entirely on fundraising. For the past several years, hospice organizations have held many meetings among themselves and with their respective LHIN to make a case for the

funding of residential hospice beds. “A major stumbling block is the inability of small rural communities to demonstrate that a two or three-bed hospice is cost effective,” said Burt. Thus few communities have been brave enough to attempt to raise the funds to establish a residence and then to go to their communities every year to fundraise the approximately $150,000 required to keep going. One or two have accepted this challenge. Pilot Hospice A bright spot was the agreement of SELHIN to approve a pilot project in Picton where Hospice Prince Edward opened a two-bed facility in August 2013. The intention is to evaluate the hospice after a year or so to determine the extent to which its existence contributes to a reduction in the occupancy of hospital palliative care beds. “There is no doubt that patients and

clients who have experienced the support provided in a family-centred residential hospice achieve a level of psychosocial wellbeing few can experience in a busy hospital,” Burt said. Should the experience of Hospice Prince Edward produce positive results for small residential hospices then other communities and the SELHIN may be able to explore establishing other hospices. Regardless of the funding level for hospice palliative care services the programs would not be possible without the dedication and loyalty to clients provided by volunteers. They make these programs possible and deserve our support. Our next article will talk about the role and importance of volunteers and will touch on their training and the safeguards in place to avoid caregiver burnout.

News – The Hub Hospice Palliative Care in Almonte is quickly gaining ground towards its goal of becoming part of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). The concept for the registered charity began back in February 2012, when Almonte Community Coordinators (The Hub) began envisioning a palliative care volunteer visitor service, to meet the needs of residents from Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills to Renfrew. “People are dying at home all the time and it’s a gap in our health care system in our area,” said the Hub Hospice’s Glenda Jones. “From Mississippi Mills to Renfrew, there is no good network in home care – nothing.” The project began with a group of volunteers and has grown to include a dedicated board of directors: chair Christine Bois; vice-chair Shirley Deugo; secretary Glenda Jones; treasurer Gary Pollock; and directors Jane Henderson, Eloise Caverson, Brenda Hurrle, Diane James, Pat Martin, Helen McIntosh and Peggy McPhail. They began offering their services in September 2013 and hired Allison Griffith, RN, as co-ordinator of volunteer services. She will be responsible for co-ordinating efforts of trained hospice volunteers and ensuring they are directed where they are needed. Currently, the Hub Hospice offers support to those living in their own homes, a long-term care facility or retirement home through emotional and

spiritual areas (trained volunteers listen and provide encouragement and companionship to clients and caregivers); and also direct aid to caregivers, to allow them to take a much-needed break. Public education opportunities are also available and there are plans to develop grief and bereavement services, including access to resources, referrals to community services and peer support, in the future. Its vision statement states that the service will “collaborate in the co-ordination of palliative care services in the Mississippi Mills and North Lanark area. The location of direct client services will include those settings which are considered as home by the client. Future consideration will be given to the establishment of a free-standing hospice and to bereavement support services.” The Hub Hospice is becoming more visible in the communities in which they serve as well, holding a number of fundraisers, including participation in the national Hike for Hospice for Palliative Care each year. For more information about the Hub Hospice Palliative Care, visit www. hubhospice.com or call 613-406-7020. Information on how to donate and applications to become volunteers can be found there.

Beth Donovan Hospice offers support with variety of programs

Submitted photo

Dignity, compassion and care The Beth Donovan Hospice received its level 2 accreditation certificate from HPCO. From left: Laura Smith, volunteer and client services; Dawn Rodger, executive director; and Anne Langlois financial services. The Champlain LHIN is one of 14 not-for-profit corporations that works with local health providers and community members to determine the health service priorities of our regions. As LHINs, they plan, integrate and fund local health services, including: hospitals, community care access centres, community support services, long-term care, mental health and addictions services and community health centres. Beth Donovan Hospice is in a position of mature growth undertaking an expansion of its current hospice community programs by adding critical resources to directly serve clients and their families. This enhancement includes the long awaited day hospice program, and the much needed expansion of grief and bereavement counselling services. Both services are provided without cost to the client. Fundraising continues to be an important part of day-to-day activities of the hospice. Striving to be creative and innovative with its events, the Beth Donovan Hospice concentrates on four experiences: Bowl a thon, Chillin’ n’ Grillin, Hike for Hospice and the Fall Extravaganza. The partnership with the Kempt-

ville District Hospital went a long way towards helping the BDH support its growth. “It provided us with an opportunity to work more closely with hospital front line staff,” said Rodger. Along the way the BDH used partnership experience to develop its business plan for a residential hospice and to firm up the referral process. “We are grateful to the Kemptville District Hospital for their invaluable support,” said Rodger. The day hospice program started May 1, 2014. The program will run for one day each week in the lower level of St. John’s United Church in Kemptville. The day includes a light lunch, activities, therapeutic treatments on a rotational basis, and a time that encourages socialization and sharing in a safe environment to be with like individuals while providing much needed respite for the family. The grief and bereavement counselling services provided through the hospice two days each week is conducted by a professional counsellor with experience in grief/bereavement and post-traumatic stress disorder. The increase in hours within the community service is expected to return imme-

The late Dr. Larry Librach, who died last year of pancreatic cancer, a champion of palliative care, sums up nicely what the hospice is committed to, “People want to be at home, to have

a choice in the setting where they’re going to die. They want to have some independence around decision making,” he said. “And I think we want to be free of pain and symptoms as much as possible.”

News – Often a community is measured by its infrastructure of healthcare and resources. North Grenville is a vibrant rural community that is resource rich when it comes to community. There is a community mindedness here that is above all, along with many valuable community support organizations, including the Beth Donovan Hospice (BDH). BDH is just one of many rural hospices located in Ontario committed to providing quality care while enhancing comfort, dignity, choice and quality of life to their clients. Hospice is referred to as a philosophy of care that attends to the emotional and spiritual needs of an individual as well as the palliative side of pain and symptom management that is managed through a clinical team. For more than 22 years the BDH has been going strong, most recently serving 146 families in fiscal year 2013/14, building on the achievements of previous years. “It is interesting to reflect on how the hospice has matured over the last five years always striving to be a valuable contributor to creating a world that works for everyone,” said Dawn Rodger, executive director. “We work to move beyond the understanding of our services primarily being related to death or dying. The emphasis is on life, not death.” Over the years the hospice has operated on minimal base provincial funding through the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). In the past, increases were approximately 1.5 to 2 per cent annually which proved to be a challenge for the hospice with the increase in need for services which wasn’t reflective of the demand. In the fall of 2013, a collaborative funding proposal including Beth Donovan Hospice, Kemptville District Hospital, and the Champlain Community Care Access Centre, (CCAC), resulted in an increase in base funding from approximately $96,000 to $235,000 as the province recognized the need for additional assistance for community support organizations, putting more hands on care back into community. The funds to help make the work at Beth Donovan Hospice possible originate primarily from the Champlain LHIN and generous community donations. The LHIN is a health delivery organization created in 2006 by the Ontario government.

diate benefits to clients with post-traumatic stress and other psychological and physical illnesses related to the suffering and death of a loved one. The hospice will also be conducting specialty grief groups in the future, such as loss of a loved one due to suicide, loss of a child, loss of spouse and loss of sibling. Beth Donovan Hospice also provides home visits, operates an equipment lending program, respite, as well as outreach education sessions for workplaces to assist employers in supporting critical front line staff in the prevention of compassion fatigue, or to support those who are grieving the death of a staff member.

Man jailed for illegal angling in Westport fish sanctuary News - A Greater Toronto area resident has been fined a total of $3,000 for charges related to unlawfully transporting live fish. Wu Wang of Scarborough was convicted at trial for unlawfully attempting to transport live fish, possessing an over limit of largemouth bass and fishing in the Westport pond fish sanctuary. Wang was fined $1,000 per count and had his fishing licence suspended for life. Wang was sentenced to 30 days in jail for breaching the conditions of his probation order. The court heard that on July 14, 2013, Ministry of Natural Resources conservation officers and Leeds County OPP began an investigation in response to a public complaint. The evidence revealed that Wang caught an over-limit of largemouth bass in the Westport Pond Fish Sanctuary and kept them alive prior to transport in an

aerated tank in the trunk of his car. Wang had a lengthy record of natural resource related violations, and was subject to a probation order to not commit the offence of possessing an over-limit of largemouth bass. Justice of the Peace Linda Pearson heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Perth, on April 16, 2014. The ministry reminds anglers that it is illegal to transport live fish, other than baitfish, taken from Ontario waters without the authority of a special licence for that purpose. To report a natural resources violation, call 1-877-TIPS-MNR (847-7667) toll-free any time or contact your local ministry office during regular business hours. You can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

The dignity and self-respect that its people enjoy in their respective communities are the result of sharing and shouldering the responsibilities of welcoming and supporting all members of the community without discrimination. Perth Civitan members have supported this association in various ways over the years. Submitted by the Perth Civitan Club

Stewart raises concerns about alleged pesticide use on subdivision site By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – Lanark Highlands Township Deputy Mayor Brian Stewart has expressed concerns about chemical spraying on the site of the proposed Middleville subdivision. Stewart told township council’s committee-of-the-whole meeting on Tuesday, May 13 that he had come across “reliable” evidence that soy beans had been grown on the property in the past few years, and that they had been sprayed with pesticides. “That’s not information I have,” said Brian Byerley, the principal engineer on the project for Golder and Associates. “That’s not unusual that there would be growing there.” If there had been spraying there, Byerley added, it would tend to stay in the soil, and not seep down into the water table. “It’s really the spillage that is the issue, not the spraying of it,” said Byerley. “It’s pretty reliable information I have,” said Stewart. Matt Craig, the planning and regulations manager for the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) noted that “if there is known pesticide (use), we would need to test.” Byerley pointed out that pesticides were not tested for in the soil because the information on land use was supplied by the

owners. “What we sample for is what we expect to find there, historically,” Byerley said. “We would do a follow-up if there was credible evidence. Certainly, it can be added.” Stewart continued his assertion that his information was solid. “The community out there is very adamant that it was used,” said Stewart. But fellow Coun. Bob Mingie noted that “what was on the surface likely wasn’t able to seep through.” The end is nigh The Middleville subdivision saga has been ongoing at township council for some time, but Doug Grant, a planner with Parsons Corporation, hired as the township’s planning consultant, told council that “things are now getting towards the end. There is still some finalizing of the conditions.” All of the reports from relevant agencies, like the MVCA, have been submitted to Lanark County, “and now the county is waiting for the township,” said Grant. However, the subdivision agreement between the developer and the township still needs to hash out matters such as if the road pattern is acceptable, the set-up of parkland, and other legal requirements.

“Fundamentally, the decision is that you will recommend this location,” said Grant. Other outstanding issues on site include changing the entranceway to the subdivision to better accommodate emergency vehicles, and to address the fact that three lots on the land do not conform to planning by-laws as they are pie-shaped corner lots. “Are those lots acceptable?” Grant asked. “If so, we will need to put them into exception zones. Those are issues that the township needs to deal with.” He also added that, with construction now cut up into three phases, that issues can be revisited at each stage along the way. The road being built on the site will remain the property of the developer “until a significant number of houses have been built,” said Grant, and even then, only just after the heavy traffic of construction equipment have left, but before the road opens to the public. It is at this point that the township will take over the road. “It’s not going to be bedtime reading,” joked Grant, of the subdivision agreement, which would likely clock in at a substantial number of pages. Environment The natural heritage and environmental report, backed by the MVCA, show that “there are still some outstanding concerns,”

said Craig. For Stewart, one of those concerns was that of well water. “There has been a lot of concern raised within the community about wells within the hamlet (of Middleville),” said Stewart. The subdivision itself will be reliant on about 40 wells. “Has there been enough testing done to show that there would be no effect on wells within the hamlet?” he asked. “There is no impact,” said Craig. “There is no reason to believe that their (Golder’s) conclusion is wrong.” Fire Fire Chief Rod Black noted that while he still had concerns about getting his fire trucks into the entrance, as it is currently proposed, he had suggestions for the type of water storage tanks that he would like to see buried on site. “Those tanks don’t take up a lot of room,” said Black of the tanks, which can hold between 2,000 and 2,500 litres of water in case of a fire emergency. “You could put a play structure on top of them.” Council also heard from staff that the road would likely last for about 40 years as it would be low-volume, and would only require some traffic-line touch-ups over the years. Two street lights were also proposed for the road.

Perth’s sports stars to feature at anniversary square concept By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

Photo by LAURIE WEIR

Brisk Sales for MS Society Fundraiser Community – Brenda Dube and Diane Morrow sell carnations for the Multiple Sclerosis Society Friday, May 9 during the annual Perth campaign. The women said sales were steady at Brownlee’s Metro on Wilson Street. Other businesses in town were also welcoming volunteers with the MS Society as they raised funds for two days leading up to Mother’s Day weekend.

Sports – Just in time for the 2016 Olympics and Perth’s 200th anniversary, the town is proposing a new square to celebrate the region’s sporting prowess. Jeff Dean put forward the vision for a reimagined public square in front of the town swimming pool facility at Wilson Street and Sunset Boulevard at town council’s committee-of-the-whole meeting on Tuesday, May 13. Dean explained that the square would be “different and something special,” and would cost about $75,000, with the costs being split between the town and the 200th anniversary committee. “We need to go out and find matching funds to make this work,” Dean explained. “We are looking at sports that represent Perth and area residents on the world stage,” he said. There would be five or six Olympic-type podiums made of stone holding up powdercoated steel metal cut-outs between six and eight feet high, with inset lighting on each step. A timber frame structure would be erected nearby for children’s camps. A “tree tunnel” would also be a feature along a path from the intersection to the pool, which Dean suggested could become a wedding photo location, should Stewart Park be booked up. There would also be two new picnic benches for the area. The cut-outs would represent Perth’s four Olympians, in events like equestrian, speed skating, and hammer throw, as well as one ice hockey player, representing Perth and region’s strengths on the National Hockey League ice.

One of Perth’s heritage strengths has been its stone buildings downtown. But for Dean and his committee, the challenge was, “how do we move those elements closer to Highway 7?” since the stone décor “does not become evident until you get down to Codes Mill.” That is where the stone “donor wall,” at the intersection comes in, to carry on the stone motif. Dean admitted that the proposal is “minimalistic but it is attainable.” As an added bonus, if all of Perth’s Olympians and even some of its NHL alumni were able to come together in two years, it would create “a unique opportunity for a ribbon-cutting in 2016.” The proposal drew immediate support from council. “I think it is absolutely fantastic,” said Mayor John Fenik. “The design is so beautiful.” He commended Dean, the committee, and the local design firms who contributed their time and talent to the project, and added that he liked seeing such attractions placed outside of the downtown core. “We are reaching out from the heart and soul of the community out to the highway,” Fenik said. “It is a tease….for what is available.” As for the metal statues to sports heroes, Fenik noted that there may be room to add new statues in the years to come, whenever NHL draft day comes calling for a Perthite skater, or Olympic glory beckons. “It’d be motivating to youth in the community,” said Fenik, for, looking up at the statues, realizing that if these sports greats could leave Perth and be the best in their sport, so too can they.

“I think a dog park is a great idea too,” added Fenik, noting that “it would be a draw to the town.” Smiths Falls already has a dog park near the Heritage House Museum and the town squash club. However, Coun. Judy Brown noted that the Last Duel Park site was chosen for a valid reason, since the criteria set out was that it be land owned by the town, with access to water. “This is the only area that had this available,” said Brown. “Please leave the door open to other properties that may be available,” said Fenik. While the town collects about $1,500 from dog tag licenses at town hall’s “back counter,” council also approved a plan to raise money for the park by allowing veterinarian clinics and pet food stores to sell dog tags, with 90 per cent of revenues going in to a town fund to maintain the park. The remaining 10 per cent would go to the business owner to cover administrative costs.

Pride Week celebrated with parade, fellowship in Perth, Carleton Place By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Community – The LGBT of Lanark County’s Civitan Club will celebrate Pride Week next month with a variety of events in Carleton Place and Perth, June 7 to 14. Co-chair Lorrie Britton-Reid and her partner Karen BrittonReid are gearing up for the first ever parade to mark Pride Week, happening June 14 in Perth. “This is our third year for hosting Pride events, but only the first year we will be hosting a parade in Perth,” said Lorrie, who added, they have been getting positive feedback from local businesses who will be supporting the parade with floats of their own. “We’re really excited about it, and hoping to have lots of entries in the parade,” she said. The parade will start from The Stewart School with entrants encouraged to be there by 2:30 p.m. to begin lining up. The parade route will be the same as the Santa Claus Parade, which will finish at

Queen Elizabeth school. “We will be starting off by 3 p.m. so we want people to be there before hand to get in line,” she said. “We will have new cars of every colour of the Pride rainbow with balloons filled with helium floating above them.” The week is filled with other events in the two Lanark County communities, starting June 7 in Rideau Ferry with a beach party picnic at the yacht club. Guests are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs, lunches and drinks and take a trip to the yacht club for an afternoon of socializing and entertainment. “We want folks to come with their volleyballs, nets, Frisbees… and also bring along a sense of humour,” Lorrie said. There will be a $6 charge to enjoy the conservation area, which is complete with a sandy beach area. The beach party will take place from 2 to 5 p.m. On Sunday, June 8, a rainbow church service will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. followed by a fellowship at the Zion-Memorial United

Church, 37 Franklin St., Carleton Place. A bowling and card night will be held at Visions Bowling Centre, 49 Bridge St., Carleton Place on Thursday, June 12, from 7 to 9 p.m. There will be two games of bowling (plus shoes) for $9.50 per person. For anyone who would like to just play cards, there is no fee. Call 613-253-0094 for more information on this event. Lorrie says the LGBT Civitan Club is donating $200 to the Youth Action Kommittee (YAK) of Perth to host a youth dance on Friday, June 13. Following the parade Saturday, a dance will take place at the Perth Legion June 14, featuring the Commuters. “The Commuters played last year and it was sold out,” said Britton-Reid. “So you will want to get your tickets early, and you won’t be disappointed.” Tickets are $15 each at the door, and children under 12, free. Tickets are available at Shadowfax; or you can purchase them in advance for $10 per person.

Surrounded by friends and family, Cathy Bernicky is grateful for their support and they’re only too happy to give back to their friend in her moment of need.

Fundraiser on June 7 Meanwhile the June 7 fundraiser, which will take place in the evening, promises to be lots of fun, with door prizes donated by Smiths Falls and area businesses and the push is on now to find the live local band willing to participate and make this very loving event a big success. In the meantime, Mallory Bernicky, Cathy’s daughter, has stepped up to do the baking at the Sweet Briar Bakery and Tea Room on Main Street. “I’m doing it to help my mom, because she needs the help and I do like to bake,” said Mallory. The rest of the day-to-day running of the tearoom and bakery, from serving

customers to clean up, has fallen to Bernicky’s business partner and an army of high school friends, organized by Cathy Hogan. “When Cathie reached out by email for help with the bakery, I decided to take the reins and organize work details to keep the business running,” said Hogan, Perth resident and friend. Many of those friends work full time already, but each and every one, offered their time even if it meant showing up after hours to do dishes and clean the store. Others are helping with customer service and so far the system is working well, thank goodness because Cathie has a journey ahead of her.

Community – While she lives in Jasper now, she is one of Smiths Falls’ own and a Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) graduate with a new business in town. Today her friends are rallying around her to see her back on the road to recovery. “I was diagnosed with stage four nodular melanoma that has metastasized to my spinal cord and pubic bone,” said Bernicky. Her positive attitude, her clear and present strength and the magnitude of her diagnosis have all pulled her friends to her side. “She’s awesome and we want to raise some money for her medical expenses and just to help her keep her home and business running because she’s not able to work anymore,” says Pam Casselman, her best friend since high school and neighbour. While it can be challenging to organize a fundraiser for one individual, in Bernicky’s case all the pieces are falling into place smoothly because she’s the kind of woman who inspires deep loyalty in the people whose lives she touches, according to her friends and family. “Cathie was always bringing home an animal or a person to feed,” said Audry Cook, Cathie’s mother. In a way that’s how the 40-year friendship with Casselman began – a simple invitation and a meal. Today, Casselman is doing everything in her power to support her friend. “I’ve set up a trust fund for her at CIBC and Justin Duhammel has offered the Groggery for June 7, for an evening of fundraising and he’s donating the bar proceeds to Cathie,” said Casselman. The account number for the trust account at the CIBC available all across Canada is 00096-7851987. Anyone wishing to support Cathie with a donation (cheque), should make it payable to Pamela Casselman in trust for Catherine Bernicky.

‘Slut Walk’ struts into controversy

E

ditorial – Slut. Like many so-called fourletter words, it’s short, a single syllable, but so loaded. So much hurt is tied up with it. No woman wants to be called that name. You’d never – or should never – call your mother, your wife or girlfriend, or daughter by that name. And yet, it is the ultimate putdown-du-jour in high school. Listen to any rap station for, say, an hour, and count how many times you hear it uttered. Even grown women use it to disparagingly run down what other women wear. But that is not to say that people are not getting the message, even superstar rappers. Jay Z won applause for deciding he would drop words like ‘slut’ and even the b-word from his lyrics in future songs, after the birth of his first child, a girl. Now, we can wonder why he didn’t choose to do this after he got married to Beyonce, but, at least he saw the light, eventually. Closer to home, on Mill Street in Carleton Place, this fall, the slut word will again be uttered, but not as a slur. On the same night as the annual “Take Back the Night,” rally, so too will women be taking back the word slut for the county’s inaugural “Slut Walk.” And yes, the name is designed to grab attention, and provoke debate. Well, to the organizers, mission accomplished. A bit of background: the first such walk was held in Toronto in spring of 2011, after a Toronto police officer was heard, at a community safety event at the Osgoode Hall law school at York University, to say that women would be advised not to dress like a “slut” to avoid being sexually assaulted. The first walk drew women in intentionally provocative, tight, revealing, risqué clothing, leaving very little to the imagination. And now it is coming here. Well, we were warned. If you don’t want to possibly see men in drag or dresses that shock, you

will know to avoid Mill Street on the evening of Sept. 26. We are not sure how, or even if, the ‘Slut Walkers’ will be segregated from the comparatively run-of-the-mill protester taking back the night. And maybe that is part of the point. We have seen other, similar, provocative moves done in the name of ending sexual violence of another kind right here in the county. For the past few years, the White Ribbon Campaign has, with the permission of the Town of Perth, erected a white anti-pornography banner across busy Foster Street. The organizers have told town council that they are aware that even having the word ‘porn’ in such high prominence, was provocative. Again, that was the point, to provoke a conversation. Back to the “Slut Walk.” One of the best ways to provoke anyone, male or female, is to tell them what to wear, or what not to wear. So it is not our place to tell these women to cover up – they are within the rights of the law to do this, whatever ideals of modesty wider society may have. The point that should not be lost in the hype over the use of the word “slut” or the way women dress is that no woman asks to be sexually assaulted. If being drunk is not an excuse on either side as a defence in rape cases, then no woman is “asking for it,” when she shows a bit of skin. It is condescending to women, and also to men, painting them as brutes who cannot restrain themselves at the sight of a woman wearing very little. A sexual predator intent on rape – which is more about power than sex, domination than lust – already has motive. He is merely looking for opportunity, whether she is dressed in a mini-skirt or fully covered from head-to-toe. Let’s turn our rage on him, for an attack on one woman is an attack on all of the women we love, Editorial - I wasn’t going and not preach sanctimoniously about a woman to bring this up for a while.

allotment of points per day based on your personal stats and your goal. The program helps you to make good choices about food and portions. If you choose poutine for lunch, for example, then you’ll be filling STEPHANIE GRAY up on veggies for supper. It’s kind of like a game, and it proved to be the incentive I needed to make better choices. For instance, by the end of the day there usually aren’t any points left for a bedtime snack. This is a good thing – at least for me. In the past I might have had a big bowl of cereal. Now I might choose some “free” fruit instead. Also, the money I have saved by not buying little snacks here and there more than covers the monthly membership fee that gives me access to the huge database of information to help me stay on track. You can also earn points for exercising – so if you do want a treat, you can make room for it. On the night I decided to bite the bullet and sign up, we had gone out for ice cream. It had been a food-filled day. I was sick of pinchy pants and feeling lethargic. I signed up and then back-tracked and entered all the food I had eaten that day. That big ice cream treat alone used up two-thirds of my points for that day! It quickly became clear how much useless junk I was putting into my body instead of good foods that fill me up. Before long I had fewer cravings for the crummy foods, and I had an incentive to eat sensibly and save up for treats. My pants aren’t as pinchy! This week I am attending a conference, at which there will be much sitting and eating. It’s a test. Is Will Power attending? Will I succumb to buffet temptation? Stay tuned!

Lanark Highlands resident voices frustration with unstable tax bills I am what we fondly call, a “Senior Citizen.” Lately CBC radio has been reporting on how important it is for us to prepare for retirement. It is promoted by Prime Minister Harper, promoted by parliament, and highlighted in every political party platform. Setting aside for living expenses seems to be very much in the news. My husband I were way ahead of all those platforms taking time years ago to prepare for our retirement home squirreling away our yearly income. Our motto was, “cash only” as we were still employed when we began to build. “No mortgage” was our motto. We bought 48 acres in Lanark Highlands, back in 1994, complete with a century old log house paying $400 yearly for property taxes.

Unfortunately the house was pronounced unstable during a log replacement in 2003. Disassembled logs were moved to the logger’s lot to rebuild adding old hay barn logs to match the original. Our land was vacant, just swamp and bush yet the tax bill never wavered during our years of missionary service. By 2006 the logs returned to our homestead to be assembled then stabilized by a new roof. Inside logs were sandblasted in 2007 preparing for chinking. Hydro was upgraded with a 200 amp underground service and the handdug well had to be replaced by a drilled well and oil furnace in 2008. We bought a 1987 motor home to live in onsite while replacing the obsolete holding tank with a required septic system in 2009. Unfortunately, my husband died in

2010 after a three-year fight against cancer so building our retirement home came to a screeching halt. The original house was a storey-anda-half; it was sold as a four-bedroom house with crawl space and a porch, which doubled as a kitchen back in 1994. Cardboard lined the inside plywood bedroom walls while tarpaper leaked light through the outside second storey. The house remains a storey-and-a-half with basement and properly insulated ceilings. Plywood floors and a kitchen to resemble 1940s’ vintage remain. In 2012 I used some of my RRSP funds to install two wood stoves to lower my heat expenses. Unfortunately, using my RRSP investment ultimately cut off my 2013 Guaranteed Income Supplement, cut my Trillium Benefit in half and whatever else elevated me into a higher income tax bracket vanished. Silly me,

Ontario’s bloated bureaucracy To the Editor, Except for a few ineffective comments about salary freezes, Kathleen Wynne hasn’t had a constructive thought about the elephant in the room – the Ontario government’s bloated bureaucracy. Presumably she’s content to nibble around the edges of this enormous problem and proceed into the future dragging this parasitic dead-weight behind her. For instance, there are almost 12,000 employees in Hydro One and Ontario Power Generation who earn over $100,000/year (average salary in this

group is $127,000). This does not take into account their pensions, benefits, bonuses, or all the employees who earn less than $100,000. The cost of hundreds of thousands of Ontario bureaucrats affects all Ontarians who want either to keep our tax dollars ourselves, or have them spent on any

News – The winter of 2013-14 may be a distant memory with the nice weather, but its legacy still can still be seen in the ugly marks left on Perth’s streets. And when it comes to filling in the potholes left over from the winter, “asphalt filling potholes isn’t going to cut it,” said Mayor John Fenik during Perth town council’s committee-ofthe-whole meeting on Tuesday, May 13. He called on town staff to deliver a report back to council to see if any streets could be brought forward on the paving priority list as they had extensive damage, though he put forward Church Street, a section of Rogers Road and Foster Street as three areas that have been brought to his attention needing urgent consideration. On another traffic matter, Coun. Jim Boldt recounted that, in his estimation, the parking lot at the community centre was “90 per cent… being used by people who work in that area. That is not offstreet parking.” While he stressed that he was “not suggesting” things like paid parking meters to police the area, he put forward the notion that a three-hour parking limit could be used to police illegal parking there. Dock dreams The public docks at Rideau Ferry in Drummond/North Elmsley Township will soon be open for business, and Fenik noted that he wanted Perth to be able to capitalize on the tourists availing of docking there. He suggested free e-bikes or even a twice-daily shuttle bus to bring tourists to-and-from to Perth.

number of worthy causes in our society. This money should be reclaimed from Ontario “public servants” and their jaw-dropping sense of entitlement. It has created a two-tiered system – them and the rest of us who keep them in a lifestyle that we can’t afford for ourselves. Tonia Kelly Perth

I thought those dollars belonged to “my investment retirement savings.” Count this as another penalty which resulted from “preparing for retirement.” Finally, as an early 2013 Christmas present, Lanark Highlands Township sent me a new “supplementary tax bill reassessment” voted by their board to charge me three years of back taxes. My property taxes that were once previously “paid in full” during 2011, 2012 and 2013 tax years were now in arrears to the tune of $4,450 to be paid by December 16, 2013. I surely do not recall voting in such a property tax bill. I never heard of such a thing. My statement for January 22, 2013 said my $538.86 “bill represented 50 per cent of the prior year’s annualized taxes.” This January 21, 2014, just one year later, my bill of $5,606.69 says it “represents 50 per cent of the prior

year’s annualized taxes.” Can this really be true? So much for my “preparation for retirement.” My only option now is to sell my retirement home to pay the back taxes that were presumably paid each year on time, even those years when no house was physically on my property. Of course, those years when the house was absent from my property do not qualify for reimbursement or tax credit, even though MPAC has reassessed my reassessment. Bravo Lanark Highlands! Move the old folks out into government owned retirement homes to make room for “Young People” moving up the ladders of success to pay even higher taxes. Perhaps a few of those young people will become lawyers to challenge city hall. Marta Roffey Lanark

PDCI hosts art show at the Bean, May 26 Community - If you are lacking something to do between now and May 26, why not check out the PDCI art sale? It is held at the Café Bean in the Old Brown Shoe building and all the work being sold is created by PDCI art students. Half of the profit go to the students and the other half go to the Cornerstone Foundation which helps support local teens in need. Speaking of being in need, if you are ever struggling with mental health problems you should seek help. We were reminded of this in our Mental Health Presentation put on by CHEO’s Youth Net. They spoke to us about the importance of seeking help when you are feeling mentally unwell. It was a good reminder for everyone and perhaps just what some people needed to hear. Children’s Resources on Wheels has two summer employment positions for senior students who will be taking early childhood education or the equivalent post secondary education this fall. Please visit student services for more information. On May 12, the senior boys soccer team travelled to Carleton Place to play at Notre Dame.

Entertainment – It won’t be a Muslim version of Jesus Christ Superstar, but a new stage production will be bringing the life of the Prophet Muhammad to life. “What we are trying to do with this event is clear the misconceptions that people have about Islam and the Prophet Muhammad,” said Faheem Affan, of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at of Ottawa, speaking to Perth town council’s committeeof-the-whole meeting on Tuesday, May 13. “He was a peaceful person… Come and see what we do and see what the Prophet Mohammad is and how he has lived his life.” Muhammad: The Astonishing Story of the Prophet will be playing June 4 at the Studio Theatre, 63 Gore St. E., in Perth, from 6 to 8 p.m. (guest reception at 5:30 p.m.). Admission and parking is free, and there will also be a free barbecue at the nearby Crystal Palace. Affan stressed that his group preached the message of “Love for All – Hatred for None,” and added that “we live by this motto. We deliver the peace message everywhere. We use the media to spread the message of peace.” However, this peaceful message has put them at odds with other Muslims.

experience in their chosen field. The growth of the program has been made possible by the generosity of donors, including area businesses and service clubs and a fundraising golf tournament sponsored by Jim Noble of RBC Dominion Securities, as well as by grants from the Canadian government. Its long term sustainability is being supported by an endowment fund at the Perth & District Community Foundation. Noble has become a major supporter of literacy efforts throughout Lanark County. “We believe in building a better future,” he said. “This program builds a better future for those children who get the opportunity to participate. The expansion of the program is one of our key objectives in order to improve that opportunity and future for the children of Lanark County.” The program in Perth will be held at Perth & District Union Public Library, 30 Herriott St., between June 30 and Aug. 22. The program in Lanark will be held at the Lanark Highlands Public Library, 75 George Street, between July 28 and Aug. 22. Teachers at the following schools have received program registration forms to pass along to parents: Sacred Heart, Maple Grove, Glen Tay, Drummond Central, North Elmsley, Queen Elizabeth, Stewart and St. John Elementary. It is also open to Montessori and home-schooled children. Parents interested in having their children participate should contact teachers. Program scheduling will be done through Perth Union Library in late May and early June. Other questions about the program may be directed to Rachel Warren at Perth & District Union Public Library, (613) 267-1224.

Perth stage show seeks to dispel myths about Islam, Muhammad By DESMOND DEVOY

Community - Children in the western part of Lanark County will have increased access to reading help this summer thanks to an expansion of Perth & District Union Public Library’s Summer Literacy Program. In a new partnership between the Perth and Lanark libraries, the program will be offered in both communities this summer. The Summer Literacy Program is in its 25th year in 2014 and will once again offer one-on-one tutoring help to more than 100 area children. The program is open to students currently in junior kindergarten through grade 3 who have been recommended by their teachers as needing extra help over the summer to develop their basic literacy skills. The expansion will provide eight spaces for students at the Lanark Highlands Public Library, rather than requiring these children to find a way to Perth in order to participate. “Our program has always been open to children in the Lanark Highlands schools, but adding a site in Lanark Village will eliminate one barrier than may have prevented some from participating in the past,” said Elizabeth Goldman, CEO of Perth & District Union Public Library. “We are pleased to be working with the Lanark Highlands Public Library to make sure all children who need the program can take part.” The Summer Literacy Program was founded by Perth’s former children’s librarian, Susan Snyder, in 1989 and has provided tutoring to more than 1,300 children over the years. The program’s paid tutors are university students, usually studying education, who grew up in the area and are now sharing their expertise to help improve literacy rates in the region while also gaining meaningful

“We are not a true Muslim, by some Muslim’s definitions,” he said. While he is a devout Muslim himself, he sought to clear up another question some have about Islam itself – the issue of loyalty. “We are in Canada and we are Canadian,” said Affan. “We follow the rules, as other Canadians (do).” Coun. Jim Boldt thanked the delegation for its presentation and noted that while Affan suggested that his group uses the media, “I think that the media also works against you. We only hear about (Islam) when something goes bad… If it is bad news, it helps sell newspapers.” Part of the reason for this movie being brought on the road – there are also productions planed at the University of Regina and the Royal Alberta Museum Theatre later in June – was to counter the inflammatory YouTube movie about the Prophet Muhammad made in 2012 which led to riots and protests across the Muslim world. “There was some very discriminatory stuff in it,” said Affan. Mayor John Fenik agreed that “the Islam that is shown on television is not the right Islam,” he said. “Anything we can (do to) bring people of different faiths together, it is a good thing,” said Fenik. “We will be there.”

Trent Severn brings Canadiana in three-part harmony to MERA Arts - The second concert in Music At MERA’s Sunday Schoolhouse concert series, on May 25 at 2 p.m. at MERA Schoolhouse in McDonalds Corners, will feature Trent Severn. Not the waterway system in Southern Ontario, but Trent Severn – the Canadiana band whose songs are fueled by the folklore of Ontario; whose lyrics pay tribute to Canadian legends. Trent Severn is a trio of musical veterans from Stratford, Ontario comprised of indie songster Emm Gryner, singer/songwriter Dayna Manning and violin whiz Laura C. Bates. Trent Severn released their self-titled 10-track debut album just over a year ago, and in that time have garnered critical acclaim, sold out shows and national Top 5 radio charting. They have appeared on CBC Radio’s national arts program Q, and were featured as an act

to look out for in Maclean’s Magazine. On Canada Day 2013, they led the raising of the flag on Parliament Hill with their own three-part harmony rendition of “O Canada”, and backed up Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield in his first earthly performance of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” Their debut was nominated in two categories for the CFMAs: New/Emerging Artist of the Year Award and Vocal Group of the Year. Their sophomore album is due out this year. There is no lead singer in Trent Severn. There is no backup band. You’ll hear a guitar or banjo (Manning), a bass and stomp box (Gryner), and a fiddle and floor percussion (Bates). Clad in flannel, they engage audiences with their three part harmonies, honed musicianship and sincere story telling. The sound of this band is true Canadiana based in

Folk, Roots and Old Country, Their sound is often compared to a female CSNY. Trent Severn is a seed that blooms to life on a Canadian stage, and like every modest Canadian, has achievable goals: * To show a Canadian audience a really great time * To write songs that touch the hearts and tell the stories of our friends, neighbors and legends * To offer an album that sounds just like the concert * And of course, to be kind and to enjoy a beer at the end of a long day. Advance tickets for the Trent Severn concert on May 25 are $22, and are available from Tickets Please at 39 Foster St. In Perth (Jo’s Clothes), by phone at 613-485-6434 or online at www. ticketsplease.ca. Tickets can be reserved at Tickets Please and held for pickup at the door.

In loving memory of our son, brother, friend and dear family member.

SERVICE, Faye Audrey – In loving memory of a wife, mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother who passed away on 26 May 2012. We will never forget you. Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there. I do not sleep, I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn’s rain, When you waken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the soft stars that shine at night, Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die. Husband Robert Cindy, Myles and Thomas Jan, Jeff, Courtney, Kyle, Stephanie and Tennessee

HUMENIUK, Roy Roman, 1926-2013 – Written by granddaughter Christine and printed here with her permission. I went away today, Just my body, not my soul, I left behind a special piece of me for each and everyone of you. I went away today, Just my voice, not my words, Whether in the whisper of the trees, Or a loud roaring storm, Listen, they are always near. I went away today, But our memories live on through you, Whether in a silent thought, a picture frame, an album or a story told, Our memories are forever a keepsake. I went away today, Be sad, be blue, but remember I am never far away from you. Not in sight, but look inside, my presence is there watching over you. I went away today, To a new home, high above with others that we love, Friends and family that have been lost, but not forgotten. Till we meet again Be safe, be happy. Live life, love unconditionally. Be in no hurry to move on. Take in all the world has to offer, And never let it go. Missing you, love from Marjorie and families


IN MEMORIAM

McDOUGALL – In loving memory of our dear nan Dorothy McDougall, May 21, 2014. We think of you in silence, We often speak your name, But all we have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your resting place we visit And put flowers there with care, But no one knows the heartache As we turn and leave you there. Love always And missed so much Kim & Mackenzie Paul, Chantal, Connor & Breanna XOXOXOXO

McDOUGALL – In loving memory of a very precious “Mom”, one year ago May 21, 2013, the saddest day of my life. Dorothy May Burke-McDougall, loving wife of Edwin “Eddie” McDougall (Oct 22, 1969). Happy Mother’s Day/Happy 1st Anniversary with Dad. As I sit here & look at a picture of you, And look at those beautiful eyes of blue, I can certainly see why my Dad would be attracted to you. I’m happy, I’m sad and sometimes don’t know what to do, But as long as your safe, We will handle it without you, Lonely you were, but one day that changed, Your wish was to join Dad, And that was what you chose to do. We are all fine, both of you we all miss, But one day we’ll be together and start to reminisce. Hugs to you Mom & Dad. Your darling daughter, Diane

MacDONALD, Clifford – In loving memory of our dear father, grandfather, great grandfather, who left his family on May 13, 2011. We had a father with a heart of gold How much we miss him could never be told He shared our troubles, and helped us along If we follow his footsteps – we will never go wrong. What he suffered – he told but few He did not deserve what he went through. Tired and weary he made no fuss But tried so hard to stay with us. We prayed for a miracle but all in vain That God would make you well again. But God knew best – we had to part It eased your pain but broke our hearts. We cannot bring the old days back When we were all together The family chain is broken now But memories live forever He was a father so very rare Content in his home and always there On earth he toiled, in heaven he rests God bless you DAD, you were the best. Dearly missed and loved forever All your family

GOURLEY - In loving memory of a dear Nan/Grand-Nan, Thelma, who passed away on May 27, 2012. We must let go as she journeys on. She would want it just that way But I know we will meet again On a distant shore someday. And when we do, we’ll share a joke, and a cup of tea. Though just for now, she goes on alone While we treasure her memory. Always in our Hearts Tracy, Jamie and Adam

REGIONAL NEWS

Connected to your community

Local statutes can have big impact on business Lots of kittens now available for adoption at LAWS Lifestyle – As a former member and past chair of the Business Improvement Association (BIA) in Carleton Place this is a subject that has been on my mind for many years. I have seldom written about it however. But something that happened on Mother’s Day weekend brought the matter to the forefront and has prompted me to delve into the topic this week. I am going to write about local bylaws and in particular how they can impact small businesses in our communities. One of the most frequent complaints I heard as a BIA member was how upset downtown business people were when out-of-towners rolled in selling all sorts of things. Everything from books, to kitchen gadgets and tools, CDs, DVDs or even flowers. There is always someone trying to make a buck flogging items door-todoor or setting up on street corners. Sometimes they take the trouble to apply and pay for a vendor’s licence (loosely referred to here as a “peddler’s licence”) which most municipalities require under their bylaw structure. Certain so-called “fly by nighters” don’t bother about local requirements however. They aren’t about to let a licencing fee cut into their bottom line. It is about making as many quick sales as possible and getting out of town before the “heat” (bylaw enforcement or police officers) pay them a visit and insist the rules are followed. Obviously it is those people who give everyone involved a bad name. Anyway, it is flowers that brought this subject to the surface for me once again on Mother’s Day. There are only a handful of days each year when local florists, nurseries and supermarkets (who also sell flowers and plants) enjoy a major run of business. Valentine’s Day, Christmas-time and yes, Mother’s Day. What more perfect gift is there for Mom than a nice bouquet of spring flowers or perhaps a perennial for the flower border or garden? A week ago Sunday I was out for my daily walk – after enjoying a Mother’s Day brunch with my mom near Stittsville earlier in the day I hasten to add. Our son was visiting and he accompanied me. On the return leg I encountered a lady I know very well. She and her husband are long-time florists in downtown Carleton Place. She was chatting with a gentleman I had seen, but had never formally met. They hailed me and we had a conversation. Turns out the man and his wife are the operators of the other main street flower shop in Carleton Place. They wanted to talk to me about the competition they faced on one of the biggest days of the year for flower sales, Mother’s Day. An out-of-town operator (or operators) was selling flowers on the street in two locations. One downtown and the other along the busy Highway 7 strip. It wasn’t the highway sales that troubled them, it was the downtown competition which had them hot under the collar. “We (to shops) help each other,” my long-time acquaintance underlined. “This situation doesn’t help either of us.”

Reflections

town. They had. Therefore they were conducting business in a perfectly legitimate fashion under local statutes. I want to make this perfectly clear. The folks who were selling flowers here on Mother’s Day weekend were completely above board and their product was clearly first-rate. They had plenty of customers from what I could see! Let’s face it, this is a free country and there is a free enterprise system. Therefore people have a perfect right to shop where they choose. Now for the local business people’s side! They are unhappy and, after dusting off my BIA hat, I want to make it clear my sympathy lies with local businesses. Here and in all of the communities in our region and our country. Running a small business today is a difficult thing and ringing up a profit at the end of the year can be a daunting task. The more competition they face, the more difficult it is to remain solvent. The florists who spoke to me don’t mind competitors. Counting all of those who sell flowers locally they have plenty of competition thank you. What they are concerned about is fairness. They have staked their futures on Carleton Place, just as so many other small businesspeople have. They pay rent, taxes (including a BIA tax) and have all of the many expenses that go with staffing and operating a storefront in the community. They employ local people. It’s exactly the same situation the businesses in your hometown face year-round. In recent years there has been a rising crescendo from small business asking residents of their communities to “Shop Local.” It is a huge issue today when you consider the depth of the competition. Imagine what it takes to be a success in the book business today, for example, with so much online competition. Similarly fast food outlets have had a dramatic impact on local restaurants. It seems there is a pizza outlet on every corner and obviously there is a demand or they wouldn’t be there. I’m not knocking anyone. I am simply pointing out the obvious. It is all about survival of the fittest! On the other side are the folks I mentioned earlier. The people who roll into town for a day or a weekend with the object of selling a particular product and turning a profit quickly and cheaply. Often they sell out of the trunk of a car or the back of a pick-up truck. Those who follow the rules and purchase a vendor ’s permit are to be commended for following the rules. Many don’t. I know because as a former business manager (publisher of the local newspaper) we had all kinds of salespeople visit out office over the Totally legitimate I asked if they had checked to see course of the year selling everything if their street-side competitors had and anything you can name. As a BIA member my first question purchased a vendor’s permit from the

JEFF MAGUIRE

was “do you have a permit?” If they didn’t I directed them to the nearby Town Hall and insisted they purchase said permit. I know for a fact many did not follow my advice. And that is a shame. But back to our florists and their concerns. I completely agree with them. I believe municipalities have to make it easier for small businesses to operate and survive. Part of that process is to make it as difficult as possible for “here today, gone tomorrow” vendors to operate in our town and in your municipality. Higher fees There are ways this can be accomplished and I outlined my thoughts to the flower shop owners during our conversation. An obvious option is to raise the price of a vendor’s licence/permit. The more it costs to buy a licence, the less likely such operators are to set up in small communities. It is, after all, about earning maximum money in the shortest possible period. Anything that impacts on their profit margin is sure to give them pause. However, requiring a vendor’s permit is only worthwhile if the local statute is enforced. Most bylaw issues are complaint driven. Therefore I feel that local governments should put a tighter rein on this situation by challenging individuals selling on the street or door-to-door to produce the required permit. If they aren’t challenged they will be back time and again in my experience. There is such a thing as an outright ban on this kind of sales activity. But that is far more difficult to put in place and could lead to legal challenges, something local municipalities don’t want to become involved in. Not when taxpayers’ money is at stake. I don’t believe in limiting business opportunities, but fair is fair. And usually the kind of competition I’m referring to is not on an equal footing with the local businesses they are impacting. It’s not a level playing field. It is not my place to tell anyone where to shop. It is your money and you can spend it where and when you wish. On the other hand I am a huge advocate of “Shop Local” and we do just that in our own lives. Therefore I am asking this week that you consider how important small businesses are in your community and support them whenever possible. Small business is the backbone of the community and they need your help to survive and thrive. Oh yes, as I told the business owners who complained to me about street corner sales. This is a municipal election year. What better time to lobby local politicians on an important subject!

away and now Bailey is looking for a quiet forever home. Bailey is currently in a foster home, so if you would like to meet this sweet lady, please contact the shelter at 613-283-9308 to arrange a time that is convenient for you. Waldo Lovingly nicknamed “the Gentle Giant,” this seven-year-old bloodhound mix with the bright, dark coat, is loping your way in search of a fellow adventurer. Big, handsome Waldo has a big, wellrounded personality: easygoing and good-natured, intelligent and enthusiastic. He may look strong and be strong, but he’s extremely social and very affectionate with everyone. Although good with some larger dogs, small dogs and cats remain a question mark. The bloodhound in Waldo keeps him alert, watchful and curious, and nothing tickles his nose more than a good scent to follow! That’s why – for his own protection and your peace of mind – he needs to be kept on leash or allowed to roam free only in a secure, fenced-in area. He can also be quite vocal, and because of his moderate to high energy level, this bouncy, big boy will need plenty of exercise and stimulating activities to keep him satisfied. The ideal forever home for Waldo will be gentle and patient with him, provide him the guidance he needs, and lavish him with the attention he deserves. Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) is located on Glenview Road, just off Highway 43, about 2 kilometres west of Smiths Falls. The shelter is open Monday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Write to us at P.O. Box 156, Smiths Falls, ON K7A 4T1 or contact us at 613283-9308, or email at shelter@lanarkanimals.ca. Visit our website at www.lanarkanimals.ca. Please also check out www.AdoptADog.TV featuring some of our canines up for adoption.

Soldiers receive Izzy dolls after recent relay through Perth News - Legion President Ted Moss wishes to express his thanks to all Legion members, veterans, and citizens from Perth and area, who turned out to welcome the Soldier On Afghanistan Relay on Tuesday, May 6. Following the official ceremony at the Crystal Palace, Shirley Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell was at the Legion hall to present each member of the team with an Izzy doll.

She discovered that two of the relay team members had given Izzy dolls to children in Afghanistan and Haiti. Each soldier received an Izzy doll with a green beret for themselves, and they were also able to select additional Izzy dolls for their family. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell also wishes also to pass on her thanks to everyone who helped complete Izzy dolls for the ceremony. Time is running out to indicate if you can attend the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rock the Hill 2014â&#x20AC;? event on Parliament hill June 4 on the signup sheet is in the Membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lounge. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attend yourself, please pass this information on to someone else. Payment of $20 can be made to the duty bartender, and more information about the event is on the website: www.rockthehill.ca. The Saturday meat draw this month will be May 24, from 2 to 4 p.m. Also on that is the second annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Triathlonâ&#x20AC;?. This triathlon version is of a rather sedentary nature, with the three activities being cards, darts, and pool. The first 16 teams signed up in the Membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lounge, at $10 per person, will be eligible to play.

Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell is the National coordinator for the Izzy Doll Project, and the dolls are distributed by the Canadian Armed Forces, the International Community for the Relief of Starvation and Suffering (ICROSS) Canada and others. The dolls are given to orphans and children of the needy, and often the dolls are the only toys these children will ever see.

childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs but it was also a happy time when I could give them some fun stuff â&#x20AC;&#x201C; surprises â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just for the pleasure of it all. Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s giving is much like that and much, much, more! He is the perfect parent and He wants to give us both our needs and wants â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what we need for health and for the pure joy. But when we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get that nourishment, we become dry. Instead of waiting to go to church, why not invite Him to your house? Sit down at a quiet time and read a few verses from John. Use a meal time to say a blessing and pray about what happened that day. Leave your bible out and open, so you can see it when you walk by. Stop and look and read a few verses. When you think of taking a break, include a practice that will feed your spirit and then you too can get excited about life!

Community - â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go to meet with God?â&#x20AC;? Psalm42:1-2. The deer needs water to survive, esp. when being pressed by hunters. We need this water too. During days when we are giving on demand, whether it is with our families, our work, our friends/acquaintances, we need a constant source of nourishment for ourselves too. Psalm42:1-4 provides a mental picture of the many people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to spend time with God, but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to fit it into their hectic days. There are many days when our spirits feel parched and we wonder when, or if, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever meet with God again. Even getting to church once a week, can be difficult. Isaiah55:1-2 invites us to sip and savor. It says to come, if you are thirsty, even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any money, come and buy wine and milk, without money or cost. Milk represents what we need for health, for life, for sustenance - the needs in life. On the other hand, wine is used in scripture for celebrations, feasts, joy, and not for what we need to have but what we might want to have â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the extra desires in life. As a parent, I was obligated to meet my

The tall, thin windows that were in the old building have been replaced by larger ones around the entire section and a new air conditioning unit has been installed on the roof. The renovations are scheduled to finish on May 30. The $480,000 second phase of the renovation will run from June to September and involve 6,500 square feet of space in the centre of the building where the offices are now. It will convert the office space to make three more classrooms and, with the seven current classrooms, create a 10-room intermediate section of the school. The renovations will also convert an old technical education room into a multi-purpose learning room for the students. The current guidance area will be converted into a fitness area. While not part of the initial renovation plans, the section will eventually house an elevator to make the majority of the building handicapped accessible. Submitted by the UCDSB

teaching intermediate subjects. The first stage of the renovations began in November when the contractors began replacing windows and renovating the southwest portion of the building. The 6,445 square-foot section has been chosen for the administrative centre because the old library offered the largest available space to locate the administrative offices with ground-level accessibility and visibility. With students relying on electronic research, there is not as much need for the traditional library space. The section of the building is also the easiest area to install a handicapped-accessible entrance, said Cameron. The $743,000 first phase of the renovations will install a learning commons about half the size of the current library. A new principal’s office, two new vice-principal’s offices, a meeting room for staff, cooperative education, child and youth worker and guidance offices, a washroom and a handicapped-accessible washroom will also be created.

the format. “I think we will benefit from what every other secondary school has learned while converting – what works and what doesn’t work,” said Cameron. “The benefits of the change will far outweigh the costs.” Cameron has witnessed the success of the Grades 7-12 format while a vice principal at Rideau District High School (RDHS) and says that incorporating intermediate students into a high-school setting revitalizes the school culture. “It really infused the building with a new sense of energy,” she recalled of her days at RDHS. The change at PDCI will allow for greater cooperation between teachers in the high school and intermediate panels so they can see what needs to be done to allow intermediate students to transition successfully to high school. As in other schools, intermediate and high school teachers of subjects such as math can meet to discuss what teaching approaches work best. The conversion will even allow some teachers from the high school panel to try their hands at

News – An ongoing renovation at Perth and District Collegiate Institute (PDCI) will revitalize the administrative offices, guidance area, and learning commons, while making way for the conversion of the high school to a Grade 7 to 12 facility. The $1.2 million renovation is being conducted in two phases. The first phase, which began in November, will prepare the new administrative offices and learning commons in the south end of the building where a spacious library once stood. The second phase, to be launched June 2, will involve conversion of the current second floor area in the middle of the school (where the offices are now), into 10 modern classrooms that will house 250 intermediate students starting in September. The entire project will be finished by Aug. 30. Vice principal Dorothy Cameron says staff members are excited about the transition, which will see all Perth-area intermediate students attend PDCI, one of the last high schools in the Upper Canada District School Board to convert to

Ian Millar is King of Caledon with grand prix win Sports - The newly-renovated Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park opened its doors for the first show of the season, and Ian Millar wasted no time posting the first grand prix victory. The 10-time Olympian hailing from Perth, won the $35,000 CSI2* RAM Equestrian Grand Prix, riding Dixson on Sunday, May 18, for owners Sue and Aerial Grange at the site of equestrian events for the 2015 Pan American Games. A total of nine horses found their way to clear rounds over the first-round track set by Germany’s Werner Deeg to qualify for the jump-off. Three riders, including Canadian Olympic team silver medalist Jill Henselwood, incurred one time fault for exceeding the 71-second time allowed. Conor Swail of Ireland, who had won Friday’s $35,000 CSI2* Alberta Premium Open Welcome with Lansdowne, was first to return, posting a time of 44.52 seconds with the 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood stallion (Guidam x Wolfgang). His lead would be short-lived, however, as Millar navigated the track in a blistering fast time of 43.51 seconds with Dixson, an 11-year-old Belgian Warmblood gelding (Vigo d’Arsouilles x Olisco). Five more horses would follow, including Swail with his second ride, Martha Louise. The pair was on target to take the win with a time of 42.73, but a rail down three from home put paid to their chances of victory. “Conor led it off with Lansdowne and was extremely fast and clear,” said Millar, 67, who, on Friday, had finished second to Swail with Dixson, as well as taking fourth place with Baranus. “I took the lead from Conor and held it right to the end. Conor was actually getting me on the clock with his second ride, Martha Louise, but then had a rail. My son, Jonathon, was double clear today, too. All in all, it was an excellent day!” One week earlier, Millar anchored the Canadian team to victory in the CSIO4* Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ in Coapexpan, Mexico by posting three clear rounds – two clear rounds plus a tie-breaking jump-off, with Star Power. With three top horses, Millar noted that his string “is the best it’s been in many, many years.” Of his plans for Dixson specifically, Millar said, “His development comes along extremely well. I’m focusing on Normandy (site of the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games), and then probably onto Barcelona for the Nations’ Cup Final.” While Millar emerged victorious on Sunday, Swail’s return to competition at the Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park was notable as it was his first show back after tearing his Achilles tendon at the Royal Horse Show in Toronto last November. Having won the last two major competitions of the 2013 season at the Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park - the $35,000 CSI2* RAM Equestrian Caledon Cup Phase 1 and the $35,000 CSI2* RAM Equestrian Caledon Cup Phase II, presented by Peel Maryborough and Aviva, with Lansdowne, the pair resumed exactly where they had left off, by claiming victory over a 12-horse jump-off field in Friday’s $35,000 CSI2* Alberta Premium Open Welcome. Their time of 43.58 seconds gave them the win over Millar and Dixson, who had stopped the clock at 46.20, making it a great day for Susan and Aerial Grange of Cheltenham, ON, owners of both Lansdowne and Dixson. With two of the world’s best riders taking victories on opening week,

there is no doubt that the Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park is of international standard.

Rave reviews Following an extensive rebuild and renovation in preparation for next year’s Pan American Games, the Park attracted rave reviews all week long, including from Millar, a three-time Pan Am gold medalist. “It’s fantastic!” raved Millar, who caused an internet sensation on Friday with his interview for the Town of Caledon. “This facility will assure us the best equestrian events of any Pan American Games and, just as importantly, it reminds me of “Field of Dreams” build it, and they will come!” RVSP by May 26th to Millar continued, “When you have reserve your seat. a facility of this standard, it attracts Call Dale Smith at sponsorship, it attracts prize money, it (613) 267-4225 (x7507) attracts television coverage.

Baby chicks arrive, thrive in Grade 2 QE classroom By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – There’s good reason to feel that Cara Dean’s science class has the ambiance of a barnyard. It’s not that her kids are out of control, but rather that Dean, the science teacher at Queen Elizabeth Public School in Perth, has brought a bit of the farm yard into the classroom, with the recent arrival of 16 tiny chicks. “(It is) hands-on learning at its best,” said Dean, looking down at the yellow and black balls of fluff running around in their little wooden pen on Wednesday, May 15. “It fit in nicely with the curriculum… You can read a book but for the kids to see them out, wet and then fluff up and how we care for the animal (was great).” On April 23, the experiment began with 24 eggs. On April 28, the eggs were

“candled,” whereby, a light was shone on the eggs, and the students “got to see if the embryo was evident,” said Dean. “On Monday night (May 12) I saw two holes (in the eggs) which startled me because I wasn’t expecting (them),” said Dean, since they are supposed to incubate for 21 days. By the end of the school day on Tuesday, May 13, about six eggs hatched, and a further nine hatched overnight, from the Tuesday night to the Wednesday morning when school resumed. One final egg hatched at the noon hour on May 15. Some of the eggs hatched on the Tuesday afternoon so “we got to see it (the chick) coming out of its shell,” said Dean. “It was very exciting that the kids got to see it during the day. They got to see it peeking through the hole.” But it is not just Dean’s students who are a twitter over the new arrivals. “The school is just booming with ex-

citement,” said Dean. “I am happy with 16 out of 24. (It is) normally not that high.” She should know. Four years ago, when she tried this experiment before, she got only one chick out of 28 eggs. Dean credits a Grade 3 student and her family with the decision to take another crack at introducing new life into the classroom this way. One day, Sadi Gibson ran over, “sharing her excitement.” “Ms. Gibson!” she cried. “’We

hatched eggs at our house!’ I could feel her excitement.” Gibson followed up and Sadi’s father, Jason Gibson, provided the eggs for the class experience. “He was very quick to say, ‘Oh, I’ll get you some eggs,’” she said. He also loaned the wooden box, with a heating lamp affixed over top of it to keep the chicks warm, and also the incubator, which the chicks needed for the first little while.

On stage and off, Little Women, the Musical is about dreams By PAUL JOYCE

Arts – Take a classic tale that has been cherished by generations of readers, add a stirring live music score and a cast of seasoned actors, and what do you have? An unforgettable stage show, and a dream come true for actors and audiences alike. Little Women, The Musical, which opens on Thursday, May 22, is one of the most eagerly anticipated shows ever staged by Perth’s Studio Theatre. Director C. Lee Bates knows that her telling of this beloved story has a lot to live up to. “Little Women is Louisa May Alcott’s classic Civil War tale about the strength of family, and having the courage to follow one’s dreams. If you grew up with the story, our production will bring to life the characters you loved as a child. And even if you don’t know it, you’ll be truly entertained – this is a warm, humorous, family-friendly show, with stellar vocal and orchestral performances and powerful acting. Who could ask for anything more?” C. Lee Bates was the director behind the phenomenally successful musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, which broke new ground for stage productions at the Studio Theatre last year. She says that although Spelling Bee and Little Women are both musicals, they present very different challenges. “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was a comedy, and relatively unknown to our audiences. Little Women is a story that generations of people have known and loved, and we’re very aware that we need to be true to the spirit and tradition of the piece. With strong vocal performances and a thrilling 11-piece orchestra, I’m confident that Perth audiences are going to love this show,” she said. Actors who perform in community theatre are a special breed who commit countless hours to honing their performances. Although they’re unpaid, they

We spoke to some of the cast members of Little Women, the Musical, to find out what made them want to be a part of this classic story.

Courtney Mason, who plays feisty, fearless Jo March, is a graduate of the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts in Toronto. Courtney says that the character of Jo has many of the qualities she admires. “Jo refuses to be something that she

isn’t, no matter how much people expect her to be. She is strong, and she knows who she is and what she wants. I am definitely not as fearless as Jo, but portraying her is a welcome challenge!” said Mason. Julie Kevan, a talented singer and

veteran actor from the Ottawa area, is one of two actors who play the mother, Marmee. “Marmee has been a dream role for me,” Kevan said. “As a mother, she is such a strong role model, with so much patience, tenderness, love, and care. Her songs are powerful and very moving. She’s the heart and strength of the show, her spirit is beautiful.” Kyle Booth is a 25-year-old tenor who plays the role of “Laurie” Lawrence, a hopeless romantic who will do anything to find true love. “Laurie is a character a lot of people who fall in love can relate too,” he said. “The most challenging thing about playing this character is finding the balance between being a shy young boy at the beginning of the story, then a grown man later on. Working two completely different personalities – and how he interacts with the other characters at these two points of the story – has been a rewarding challenge for me.” Little Women, The Musical also stars Jackie LeClerc, Andrew McDougall, Justin Hills, David Wright, Mary Hills, Barb Guthrie, Emma Houlahan, and Lindsay Rewi. Music is by Jason Howland, lyrics by Mindi Dickstein. Music and vocal director is Laurel Tye. Opening night is Thursday, May 22, with performances May 23, 24, 30 and 31 at 8 p.m. and May 24, 25, 31 and June 1 at 2 p.m. Advance tickets are $20 cash at The Book Nook, and $22 cash at the door, or at Tickets Please, which accepts phone, credit card and online orders (613-485-6434; ticketsplease.ca). Adult tickets are two-for-one on opening night, Thursday, May 22 (aeason tickets holders can bring a second person free on that night only). Children under 12, and students with ID, are just $10 any night. For further details, please visit studiotheatreperth. com. Paul Joyce is a member of the Studio Theatre’s promotions committee.

Business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On Saturday, May 10, franchisees, staff and thousands of volunteers at more than 400 M&M Meat Shops locations across Canada joined together to raise $1,075,000 for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canada (formerly known as the Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada). Supporters from coast to coast lined up to celebrate M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day, raising funds to help find a cure for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the lives of children and adults affected by these chronic diseases. To date, the annual event has raised more than $25,381,000 for this very worthy cause. May 10 marked the 26th anniversary for M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day and Canadians enjoyed thousands of hamburgers and hot dogs. Proceeds raised will go directly to Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canada to invest in research, education, awareness and advocacy programs for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis, a disease that affects more than 233,000 Canadian men, women and children. This year, M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day was pleased to have 11-year-old Halifax resident, Jillian Robinson as Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative for the event. Jillian understands all too well what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to live with ulcerative colitis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was diagnosed with ulcer-

More than $1 million was raised across Canada during May 10â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day to benefit the Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada. More than 400 M&Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s locations participated, including locally in Carleton Place, Kemptville, Smiths Falls and Perth. Above, in Carleton Place, in front, Paul and Mary Lou Chamberlain of Carleton Place, whose daughter Amanda has Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease. They say they have been volunteering for the cause since their daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diagnosis at age 12 to 22 years ago.

Charity BBQ Day, raising more than $1 million for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canada,â&#x20AC;? says Gary Decatur, president and chief operating officer at M&M Meat Shops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our sincere thank you to everyone who helped to make the 26th annual Charity BBQ Day a huge success.â&#x20AC;? Decatur believes this amazing feat could not have been accomplished without the help of the thousands of volunteers and dedicated M&M Meat Shops franchisees, who tirelessly manned barbecues and promoted their event in local communities across the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadians have more reasons to be concerned about Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis than anyone else in the world. One in every 150 people is living with these chronic diseases â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a rate that ranks in the highest worldwide,â&#x20AC;? says Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief development officer, Terrance Slobodian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are the Canadian diseases that affect the entire family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; moms and dads, brothers and sisters. Monies raised from the (May 10) event makes important research happen. And we are so very grateful for the hard work of our volunteers and M&M Meat Shopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; franchisees, who share in our vision of a future without Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis.â&#x20AC;?

Here is the1938 Ford street rod owned by Jim Smith of Wellandport, Ontario.

in Canada and the U.S. In going to these shows, we have met a lot of wonderful people and have made many friends. Just love this sport! Thanks again for the great articles.” The Shirley Temple movie mentioned above came out in 1939, when Jim’s car was one year old. The ad for the movie at the Onyx Theatre in the Saskatchewan town of Biggar stated: “Showing today 3:30 to 9:30 Continuous.” Also included with the movie was a comedy and a news reel. And after the last show, the theatre held a “BIG DANCE” with music supplied by the Biggar Orchestra. Jim’s letter arrived in my mailbox within a day or two of the news on TV announcing that Shirley Temple had passed away at age 85. Jim Smith’s 1938 Ford coupe is a classic example of Art Deco styling with its curvaceous

grille and sleek body lines. The windshield can be cranked open at the bottom for an early form of air conditioning. When Jim’s car was new, it had mechanical brakes, with Henry Ford claiming that this design gave you “the safety of steel from pedal to wheel.” One year later, Ford switched to hydraulic brakes, which Jim has added to his ’38. His Ford when new had a flathead V8 engine with 221 cubic inches and 85 horsepower and a Windsor factory retail price of $845. I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@ sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, Ont. N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

‘He’s a Good Dog’ concert for LAWS June 5 Community – Juno Award winner and Port Dover native Fred Eaglesmith performs in Carleton Place at the town hall (137 Bridge Street) on Thursday June 5 at 8 p.m. The show is called ‘He’s a Good Dog’ concert as it is a fundraiser with net proceeds going to LAWS. For more than 35 years, the legendary Eaglesmith has toured towns and cities across the continent, singing about the people and places of this province. In doing so, he has earned international accolades, gold records, a spot on David Letterman and songs covered by recording starts such as Miranda Lambert, Allan Jackson and Toby Keith. Now Eaglesmith

says the time has come to bring his show back home to Ontario where it truly belongs. The upcoming concert at the town hall on June 5 is just one of the local shows he has planned for this year. Eaglesmith also thinks the smaller halls are the ideal venue for his Travelling Steam Show. The songs he writes and performs, with the help of his band – which includes Texas knockout Tif Ginn as opener and back-up vocalist, bassist Justine Fischer, Matty Simpson on guitar, mandolinist Mike Zinger and drummer Kori Heppner – seem particularly poignant and appropriate in these places, because they are genu-

inely tied to the lives, labours, trials, tribulations and triumphs of the everyday people who may visit them. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at www.fredeaglesmith.com for $35 or at Read’s Book Store on Bridge St. in Carleton Place. Should tickets be left they will sell at the door for $40. For further information, contact Ray at 613-257-5126. ‘He’s a Good Dog’ is a song Fred wrote many years ago about a dear friend. We will also have a pie auction with proceeds going to Operation Smile. The Town of Carleton Place is supporting the concert with a Community Enrichment Grant for facilities.

I bought it from a fellow in Ayr, Ontario, in 1997. He told me he bought it in western Canada, where it sat in a barn for 40 years. “I think the barn was near Biggar, Sask., because of the piece of paper I found in the trunk advertising a Shirley Temple movie: ‘Susannah of the Mounties’ with Randolph Scott and Margaret Lockwood at the Onyx Theatre in that town. I also found a 1938 quarter and a 1942 dime in the car. My wife had the quarter made into a key fob. “The car has now been transformed into a street rod, which took three-and-a-half years. I retained the original look on the outside. It is powered by a 396 V8 with 700R4 transmission and a 9-inch Ford rear end with a Mustang II front end. The car also has a completely new frame. “My wife and I have a lot of fun driving it to shows from Moncton, NB, to Louisville, Kentucky, and Michigan, and lots of other shows

Lanark County throws support behind investigating hydro rates AEDs, for a total of 116 of the devices with public building access throughout the county. “Placing signage outside buildings, at main entrances and above the cabinets that house an AED promotes awareness of and the availability of an AED in a public access facility throughout Lanark County,” said Rick Hannah, emergency services co-ordinator. “Performing CPR and using a defibrillator before paramedics arrive can increase a person’s survival rate by up to 75 per cent.” CAO provides public works garage update Council accepted an information report about the ongoing project to see a new public works garage constructed on land beside the county administration and public works buildings on Christie Lake Road. So far a preliminary site plan design, road survey and draft floor plan have been completed. The proposed facility would have a second storey with 4,050 square feet for record storage for Archives Lanark and Lanark County. Council also approved a motion to proceed with tendering for upgrade work at the Union Hall facility, as well as to engage an architect to design the Perth garage. The initial estimate for the new building, site work, salt/sand storage, equipment storage and relocating the generator, as well as upgrades at Union Hall and architectural work, is $3.3 million. The project comes as the Perth garage on Wilson Street is at the end of its useful life.

ing for youth centres have been unsuccessful. “The cost of not investing in our youth can have significant impacts on our communities,” explained Mary Lou White, children’s services manager. “Some research now states that investment of $1 in prevention can save up to $17 in costs later.” The current funding of $200,000 per year is specifically targeted to support the executive director positions in the centres. They then pursue other funding opportunities and build capacity in the programs. Council heard the funding has provided stability and has allowed for growth, and that discontinuing or reducing funding would reduce services and possibly affect the future of the centres. Support in principle for continuing the funding gives the centres the ability to plan for another year. Lanark County has contributed $1.6 million since 2003.

Defibrillator signage approved Council has approved a recommendation to provide signage at each of the public access facilities where Automatic External Defibrillators can be found. This is part of a county-wide initiative to place signage at the entrances of buildings that house defibrillators to indicate one can be found inside when the building is open.

Lifestyle – “Hi Brian, Like so many that write to you, I too enjoy your column and advice on a wide range of topics. I have a 2010 Ford Taurus with 85,000 km. The kilometres are light duty and mostly highway. Rarely would there be more than two passengers or a few suitcases. As of this week I have replaced three of four wheel bearings. Front two bearings were done six months ago. Right rear bearing was done this week. These are not inexpensive repairs. The OEM tires and rims on the car are 18-inch, my question is do today’s larger tires add significant stress on bearings and are the Taurus’ bearing assemblies up for the job? Are there other factors that might contribute to bearing failure?” Phil In my experience, unlike many parts on autos, wheel bearings don’t tend to fail strictly because of mileage. The experience on this Taurus isn’t usual according to my local dealer service and parts department contacts. The question on wheel size affecting these failures is a good one. While 18” tires and rims are large, the wheels are usually constructed of a lighter weight alloy which offsets the size. So as weight isn’t a factor, the improved grip of larger rubber might be. Let me explain. Drivers quickly adapt their driving styles to the limits of the vehicle they are operating. No one wants to be unsafe or a discourteous driver, but lighter vehicles with powerful

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

engines build on very responsive suspension and steering systems, tends to bring unforeseen consequences. Sometimes the tire grip is just too much for the car given a particular set of road and weather conditions. Most wheel/hub bearing assemblies fail from excess forces being applied to them. Lateral impacts on curbs, direct collisions with potholes, constant poundings from unpaved roads, and even aggressive cornering can lead to their demise. Alloy wheels can exacerbate these problems as they tend to seize on the hubs over the course of a few months of Canadian winters. Then when it comes time for the seasonal tire changeover, techs must often resort to hammering the rims off. A heavy hammer is also often employed when trying to remove brake rotors during routine maintenance. All this pounding can have a negative effect on wheel bearings. My advice is to always stick with a well-known brand name part with the longest warranty possible when replacing a hub/ bearing. Ford recently changed the warranty on their replacement parts and most are now covered for two years with no distance limitation. There are plenty of cheap off-

shore after-market brands, but they seldom deliver a life-span most consumers expect for the price. When having the tires removed for rotation or seasonal change, ask the tech to paint a coating of heat-proof lubricant on the hub where the wheel contacts it. This might also make a big difference if you have to change a flat on the side of the road. Of course, avoiding curb kisses and potholes and wash-outs is up to the driver. The Rubber Association of Canada recently revealed some surprising stats from a Leger poll of more than 1,000 Canadian drivers completed in early April. With the automobile travel season at our doorstep it’s astounding that: • 69 per cent of drivers don’t check their tire inflation monthly, • 31 per cent think they only need to check their tire pressure when it appears tire pressure is low, • 45 per cent of motorists do not know where to find the correct inflation pressure for their vehicle, • 65 per cent do not know that tire pressures should only be measured when tires are cold. Other than the increased fuel consumption and shortened tire life to consider, the risk to road safety grows with each pound of air pressure lost. Underinflated tires can be a blow-out hazard waiting to happen, especially when rolling on a heavily loaded vehicle in warmer ambient temperatures. “These findings should be a wake-up call to Canadian motorists,” says Glenn Maidment,

president of The Rubber Association of Canada, which represents tire makers. “Drivers can guarantee optimal tire performance, lower their fuel bills and protect the environment simply by learning a few tire inflation facts and measuring air pressures monthly to ensure their tires are inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended level.” On Saturday, May 24 and Sunday, May 25, the Rideau Lakes ACCCC Flea Market, Craft Sale & Car Show (May 25) is on at the Lombardy Fairgrounds on Highway 15 (four miles southwest of Smiths Falls).

Calling on election candidates to sign up for 4 Lung Years

COUNTRY JUKEBOX

Lifestyle – Even though one in five people in Ontario has a serious lung disease, there is no coordinated provincial plan to address the growing lung health crisis. That is why the Ontario Lung Association is asking candidates in the June 12 election to take a deep breath and sign the 4 Lung Years Pledge – a promise that if elected they will support a comprehensive Lung Health Action Plan for Ontario. During the campaign, the Ontario Lung Association (@OntarioLung) and its lung health ad-

WED., AUG. 20 @ 8PM THURS., AUG. 21 @ 2PM & 8PM

vocates will be using social media to encourage party leaders and candidates to share photos of their signed 4 Lung Years Pledge. All Ontarians are invited to join the conversation – and share why they feel lung health should be made a priority – using hashtag #4LungYears. Of the four chronic diseases responsible for eight in 10 deaths in Ontario – cancers, cardiovascular diseases, lung disease and diabetes – only lung disease does not have its own coordinated provincial strategy.

“Lung health must become a top health priority in Ontario,” said George Habib, president and chief executive officer of the Ontario Lung Association. “A lung health action plan will not only improve the lives of the 2.4 million women, men and children living with lung disease, it will also save billions of health-care dollars.” The Ontario Lung Association is currently consulting with stakeholders throughout the province on the draft framework for an Ontario Lung Health Action Plan that will reduce the impact of lung disease,

improve lung health and save scarce health-care resources. “Every Ontarian who breathes benefits from policies that make lung health a priority in our province,” said Habib. “Therefore, we call on all candidates to sign the 4 Lung Years Pledge, a commitment that, if elected, they will work to implement the Ontario Lung Health Action Plan during their first four-year term.” The Lung Health Information Line – 1-888-344-LUNG (5864) – is staffed by certified respiratory educators.

The 12-year-old started growing his hair out in May 2012 in support of his mom Jackie, left, who was undergoing treatments for breast cancer at the time. His brother Jordan, right, was part of a group of volunteers from Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) at last year’s Relay held on the track at SFDCI and will be back again this year volunteering.

adult cancer patients. On the fundraising side, Rilyn hopes to raise $1,000 for the cancer society. Anyone who would like to support Rilyn Taylor’s Head Shave Fund is encouraged to contact Jackie at 613-284-9451. Jackie says her co-workers at the downtown location of Tim Horton’s in Smiths Falls have been “heavily supportive” of the cause, having already contributed close to $200. While this is the first time Rilyn has taken part in the RFL, his brother Jordan who is a Grade 12 student at SFDCI volunteered through the school at last year’s event and plans to lend a helping hand again on June 13. Jackie who is still on the waiting list for reconstructive surgery hopes to participate in the Survivors’ Victory Lap that evening. Raising funds for the CCS to assist cancer research and support the many programs that the society’s Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Community Office offers to those who have cancer, cancer survivors and caregivers is very important for Jackie and not just because she is a cancer survivor. “We just lost one of our closest friends three weeks ago to cancer,” she shares. Anyone interested in learning more about the RFL in Smiths Falls or to register a team can visit relayforlife.ca/ smithsfalls or is encouraged to contact the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Community Office of the CCS at 613-2671058 (toll-free 1-800-367-2913) or email lanarklg@ontario.ca. “Relay is quickly drawing near and my team is planning a great night,” says Bill McNicol, event chair. “If you don’t have a team already, there is still time. I know that everyone has someone in their life that has been touched by cancer. Come out and join us. We are all here to support those we love and, in some small way, we can help eradicate this disease.”

Twelve-year-old goes extra lengths Got Events? to raise funds for Relay For Life Editor’s note: Leading up to the June 13 Relay for Life in Smiths Falls, we will be highlighting the stories of some of the team members, activities and events scheduled to take place in a series of articles. Community – When Smiths Falls’ resident Jackie Taylor was undergoing radiation treatments for breast cancer in May 2012, her son Rilyn decided to show his support in a special way. Knowing that his mom was concerned about losing her hair, Rilyn decided to let his hair grow out in solidarity with her cancer fight. “Because she was going to lose her hair, I was going to grow mine out,” he says of his decision. While Jackie did not end up losing her hair, the mother of four was still moved by this act of love. “It was touching and it still is,” she says, adding that she is very proud of what Rilyn has done. Given the fact that Rilyn had a brush cut at the time, letting his hair grow was a radical change for him. He persevered, however, and has not had his hair cut for the past two years despite being taunted by some for his long locks. “Some people would call me a girl and make fun of me,” the 12-year-old notes. Now with his thick wavy hair extending down his back, the Grade 7 student at Chimo Elementary School has decided it’s time to have it cut off. And he’s decided to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) while doing it. At the Relay For Life taking place overnight on Friday, June 13 at the Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) track, Rilyn will be having his head shaved by John Ovens of New Beginnings Hair Stylist in Smiths Falls. The head shaving will be taking place on the stage at 8 p.m. with the hair being donated to a charity that makes wigs for

Lyme disease is a concern â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Why you should take note Ticks can be infected with more than one type of bacteria that can cause human illness, hence guarding against tick bites will protect you from more than just Lyme disease. Here are some ways to protect yourself if you venture into forests or overgrown areas between the woods and open spaces: â&#x20AC;˘ Wear closed-toe shoes, long-sleeved shirts and pants â&#x20AC;˘ Pull your socks over your pant legs to prevent ticks from crawling up your legs â&#x20AC;˘ Wear light-coloured clothing to spot ticks easier â&#x20AC;˘ Use insect repellents that contain DEET or Icaridin. Repellents can be applied to clothing as well as exposed skin. Always read and follow label directions â&#x20AC;˘ Shower or bathe within two hours of being outdoors to wash away loose ticks â&#x20AC;˘ Do daily â&#x20AC;&#x153;full bodyâ&#x20AC;? checks for ticks on yourself, your children and your pets â&#x20AC;˘ If you find a tick on your skin, removing it within 24 to 36 hours usually prevents infection Symptoms Initial symptoms differ from person to person, and some people will not experience any symptoms, which makes Lyme disease very difficult to diagnose. Furthermore, others may experience mild symptoms like fever or a skin rash soon after being bitten, while others may suffer severe symptoms, but not for weeks after the bite. Signs and symptoms of Lyme disease can include one or a combination of the following with varying degrees of severity: fatigue; fever or chills; headache; muscle and joint pain, spasms, or weakness; numbness or tingling; swollen lymph nodes; skin rash; cognitive dysfunction, dizziness; nervous system disorders; arthritis and arthritic symptoms; heart palpitations, Untreated, symptoms can last years and include recurring arthritis, neurological problems, numbness and paralysis. Although not common, fatalities from Lyme disease have been reported. If you develop symptoms of Lyme disease, contact your healthcare provider right away, as the earlier you receive a diagnosis, the greater the chance of a successful treatment. If you saved the tick that bit you, bring it with you to your medical appointment as it may help the doctor in assessing your illness. Treatment Lyme disease can be effectively treated with two to four weeks of antibiotics. Depending on your symptoms, and if you are diagnosed in the later stages of the disease, you may require a longer course of antibiotics. Some people experience symptoms that continue more than six months after treat-

ment. Research continues into the causes of these persistent symptoms and methods of treatment. Getting a diagnosis of Lyme disease can be difficult because

symptoms vary from one person to another and may be similar to other infectious diseases that are spread by ticks. The agency has also recently de-

veloped a three-year action plan on Lyme disease that serves to lessen the diseaseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impact through continued and enhanced stakeholder engagement, public and clinician

education, and enhanced surveillance, as well as research, to improve diagnosis. Submitted by the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lyme disease is a serious illness thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s present in Canada and spreading. Canadians at risk from Lyme disease include those, who live, work and/or play in close proximity to ticks that spread the disease. If not identified and treated early, Lyme disease can cause serious health issues. But there are simple and effective measures you can take to protect against it. As you prepare to spend time outdoors, learn more about Lyme disease and how to prevent it. What is Lyme disease? Lyme disease is a serious illness which can be spread by the bite of blacklegged ticks that are infected with the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. In regions where blacklegged ticks are found, people can come into contact with ticks by brushing against vegetation while participating in outdoor activities, such as golfing, hiking, camping and gardening. Risk to Canadians While not all blacklegged ticks carry Lyme disease, populations of infected blacklegged ticks are growing. This means that the risk of contracting Lyme disease is on the rise across Canada. Blacklegged ticks can be active throughout much of the year; however, your risk of a tick bite is highest in the spring and summer months. Take steps to reduce your risk if you spend time outdoors in areas where there may be ticks. As ticks are very small and their bites are usually painless, you may not know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been bitten, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to be on the lookout for ticks and the symptoms of Lyme disease. Where are ticks found? Blacklegged ticks are most often found in forests and the overgrown areas between the woods and open spaces, although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to be bitten outside of these areas. The following are areas where blacklegged tick populations have been confirmed or are establishing: Southern British Columbia; southeastern and south-central Manitoba; southern and eastern Ontario; southern Quebec; southern New Brunswick and Grand Manan Island; south shore and northern mainland Nova Scotia. Ticks donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move far by themselves but they can attach to migratory birds, and may fall off far from their original location. For this reason, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to find infected ticks in other areas than the ones listed above. Surveillance is ongoing to confirm other areas of spread. How to protect yourself Canadians are encouraged to spend time outdoors, be active and to remember to protect themselves against tick bites and Lyme disease.
