Inside Council rushes to accommodate McLean, Perth Blue Wings By DESMOND DEVOY

NEWS

desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC Sports – The town of Perth has moved up its regular town council meeting by a week to accommodate an emergency request from Michael McLean, the new owner of the Perth Blue Wings Jr. B hockey team. To get the team ready for icetime for the 2013-14 season,

McLean, in an appearance before the town’s committee-of-thewhole meeting on Tuesday, June 4, asked that the full council vote on June 18, rather than June 25 as scheduled. He wants the go-ahead to begin construction on a new change room for the team, as well as the installation of a new sound and light system, high-definition

screens and seating. While the new seating could be installed in a weekend, time was of the essence when it came to the new change room, said McLean, who also vowed to bring the Montreal Canadiens alumni game to the Perth arena in January of 2014. With council’s approval of the changes to the Beckwith Street

arena, “I can sign on the dotted line today,” to bring the likes of Guy Lafleur to the home of the Blue Wings. “(But) this needs to happen now,” he added, with training camp due to start in about 10 weeks’ time. “The dressing room is everything.” McLean gave a self-imposed deadline of June 19 to get a

decision from council. The team’s board of directors dissolves shortly after the annual golf tournament on June 22. “I will not be bringing the hockey club into a construction zone,” said McLean of the intensive change room project. “It’s very tight.” See NEW OWNER page P2

North Elmsley Public School principal Paul Hanna and parent council member Lesa Jones stand in the newly-created outdoor classroom built in memory of a former student, Nicole Wren, who died as a result of injuries sustain in a skiing accident three years ago. Nicole attended this school up until Grade 5 when she transferred to The Stewart School in Perth for French Immersion.

School celebrates life of student with new outdoor classroom By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC News – Three years have passed since the death of Nicole Wren, but memories are still strong. The local girl was well known for her smile, her swimming prowess and her love of shopping. Those memories and many more will never be forgotten by those who knew and loved her.

At North Elmsley Public School, where she attended up to Grade 4, a tribute garden has been created in her name. It will be unveiled to the public during the school’s fun fair on Thursday, which starts at 5 p.m. “It’s an outdoor classroom,” said Lesa Jones, a member of the parent council who helped orchestrate the creation of the memorial garden. This week is

the official opening of the garden as the students and staff will host a native drummer. “It will be a chance for kids to come and reflect and rejoice… appreciate what they have and remember Nicole.” Community donations have helped with the purchase of plants, shrubs, lumber, benches and paint to create the tribute garden in Nicole’s name.

An angel statue will be placed in the centre of the garden. “Already, kids are hanging out here,” said Jones. Nicole was just 11 years old and a Grade 6 student at The Stewart School when she died after a skiing accident at Calabogie Peaks Resort in February, 2010. The straight A student had transferred to The Stewart School for French

EMC News - It’s not the usual item on Smiths Falls’ council agenda, but the inability for municipalities to accept service club donations from lottery proceeds has hit close to home with the only remedy, it would seem, to come from a Criminal Code of Canada amendment. A little known rule that disallows service clubs from donating lottery revenue from bingos and Nevada tickets for municipal recreation facilities came to Mayor Dennis Staples’ attention in 2007 when the Smiths Falls Kinsmen attempted to build their Kinsmen Pavillion at Lower Reach Park. The club was told it couldn’t use its fundraised dollars because of how the money had been raised. “I was fascinated by that,” Staples said. “I wasn’t aware that that was a requirement.” It turns out many politicians at every level feel the same way. Last week the local mayor attended the annual Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) conference in Vancouver where he formally presented his request for FCM to move this issue forward by asking all member municipalities to pass resolutions on the issue. “My item is still with the

EMC News - A handful of passionate residents have begun to look into the fall of 2014 and their chances at a life in municipal politics. Those who have been there and are doing that urge first-time hopefuls to do their homework before filing their papers next year. Ron Stronski, town watchdog, has been sitting in his designated seat in the council chambers for over 50 years and has become a favourite contact for residents wanting some background on council life. Stronski says he has already been approached by a

number of people in preparation for the 2014 election and has one piece of advice for anyone wishing to enter municipal politics – start attending municipal meetings now. “See what council is all about,” he said. In the last three terms Stronski can recall only three candidates who sat in the audience of regular committee and council meetings six months before an election. Many tell him they catch the process of council on the local cable network, but Stronski and other past and current councillors counter it is at committee-of-thewhole meetings that items are

debated and the realities of what sitting councillors must consider become clear. “That’s where all the action is,” Stronski said. Coun. Shawn Pankow agrees, adding his introduction to municipal politics in 2010 included a steep learning curve upon realizing the workload, process and bureaucracy with which serving the Town of Smiths Falls comes. “Being a rookie councillor it’s hard to understand what the job entails until you’re involved,” Pankow said. He encourages prospective incoming councillors to be

proactive and seek answers to their questions on a topic by researching themselves and adding this to the information received by town staff. Political life was a steep learning curve for Coun. Chris Cummings as well, who says he wishes he had entered into the race earlier. The reality that council peers around the table came to their positions with their own list of priorities and action items to accomplish became very clear for Pankow early on in his municipal career and reinforced that each of the seven council members are parts of a whole.

FCM,” the mayor confirmed. The earliest the FCM Standing Committee on Municipal Finance and Intergovernmental Arrangements will discuss the request is September 2013, but Staples hopes the issue could be addressed earlier if possible. “That’s what I’m pushing for, advocating for and hoping for,” he said. The local mayor and Kinsmen Club worked for several years to receive their exemption from the existing law, but Staples continues to lobby for a change to the Criminal Code of Canada that makes it illegal for any government (except the province) to accept funds from lottery. The mayor feels the situation can’t continue in a time when federal and provincial governments are pulling back their funding and maintenance requirements continue to add pressure to municipal budgets. So far his efforts have fallen on deaf ears at the federal level. “I have failed to find a political champion at the federal level to take up this cause,” the mayor said. Questions remain to be answered including why this rule is enforced when communities with See FEDERAL page SF3

This is something former councillor Stirling Bennett came to understand during the course of his 15 years at the council table. And it’s a message he feels new councillors need to receive before their first day on the job. “No one person can accomplish a lot. You have to have the ability to work with the group of councillors,” Bennett said. He retired from municipal politics in 2006 and encourages council hopefuls to become familiar with what provincial legislation such as the Municipal Act can do. See ELECTION page SF4

EMC News – Insp. Gerry Salisbury isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon – but when he does, a plan is in place to find his replacement. And it will be civilians who will make the final decision on who will fill his shoes. “It is not going to be an OPP selection,â€? said OPP Chief Superintendant Gary Couture during a presentation to the Lanark County association of police services boards (PSB) quarterly meeting in the Mississippi Mills town council chambers on Wednesday, June 5. Couture stressed that while Salisbury has been on the job at the Perth headquarters for about 16 years, it is always good to be prepared, since the commander’s job is “probably the most personal piece in policing you‌the individual who will deliver the service to your community.â€? Calling it a “very detailed process,â€? he promised that “we will select a person who fits your needs.â€? Once Salisbury decides to retire, or is reassigned, “I, or Chris, (OPP Superintendant Chris Lungstrass) will come to Derek Love,â€? the chair of the county PSB, “and say, ‘We need to start the selection process. We will initiate the contact.â€? The individual boards will be contacted about the change, even Drummond/North Elmsley Township, which does not have a PSB. It has to be decided whether each board will select one member to represent it on the selection committee, or if a more generalized form of representation from all over the county will be used, but civilian PSB members will make up the majority of the selection committee regardless. “We want to make sure that you make the selection,â€? said Couture. “I leave it up to you,â€? he added as to how many representatives are sent, if each board sends one representative, or not. Whatever is decided though, “we will work with it. I can’t dictate a direction to you. But we will accommodate your decision.â€? But Couture did stress that a smaller committee might make a candidate feel more at ease. “It is difficult to tell a candidate to come and sit in front of 10 people,â€? said Couture. “It is challenging to sit and answer questions.â€?

candidate is shortlisted, they may be asked to provide a shortened resume. “We will talk with you,” said Couture. “We will come to a general consensus as to who you want. We have to come to a unanimous decision… (since) that is your local leader for the next several years.” “Gerry has been here for a long time,” said OPP Superintendant Chris Lungstrass. “But people come and people go…you are distinct in that you have had the same commander for such a long time. There will come a day when he move on for one reason or another. You need to get to who works best for you and works best with you.” Lungstrass said that every portion of the OPP service is unique. He has seen the growing pains experienced by the OPP in the Upper Ottawa Valley, where the Pembroke police service is being merged into the larger force. While the Perth Police Service was, essentially, merged with the county OPP here, “Perth wasn’t huge in terms of numbers,” so the transition was a bit smoother, said Lungstrass.

But in order to find the right person, Lungstrass stressed that he needed to hear from the PSB members. “If there is some burning issue that you want answered right out of the gate, let us know,” he said. Maureen Towaij of the Tay Valley Township PSB said that she favoured a smaller group meeting on the selection committee. She also expressed her concern that there may be candidates that were more “old style leaders,” who expound the philosophy that “do it my way, or else,” versus newer officers who are more collaborative, “a leader who is in touch with the younger work force,” she said. “They are very progressive,” said Couture of the OPP’s inspector and staff sergeant class. “They are not old school. The old school approach is long gone. Not to say that it does not still exist…(but) that will come

He was told just the week before that he is now the most senior detachment commander in the province. “I will commit to you that I will give a lot of lead time,” said Salisbury, before his replacement needs to be picked.

Relay for Life numbers down in Smiths Falls; up in Mississippi Mills By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC News – The numbers are in – and they’re down significantly from last year, but overall, it was still a successful Relay for Life. The two events in Smiths Falls and Mississippi Mills raised a combined total of $195,000 after the two events on Friday, June 7. “We had two great events on Friday night with one more to go,� said Amanda Gifford, fundraising coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville. Gifford said she didn’t have a goal

in mind for the new location for the Smiths Falls event, which left its old home in Lombardy this year for its new location at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute. “We heard a lot of positive feedback about the new location. It’s more of a close-knit community type of atmosphere and they didn’t have to walk on a muddy track,� she said. Two of the 27 teams registered for the Smiths Falls event didn’t show due to weather or other commitments with family, Gifford said, but overall, she was happy with the response. “For a brand new venue, it went

well,� she said. Last year, this relay event raised $149,000 in Lombardy. In Almonte, 34 teams raised $117,000 this year, bettering last year’s total by $6,000. Lanark Leeds and Grenville will host the fourth event on Friday night at Row’s Corners in Brockville. St. John Catholic High School in Perth held a successful event late in May with more than $50,000 raised. “It’s never too late to make a donation to Relay for Life,� Gifford said. “People can donate anytime online.� Trackside In Smiths Falls, rain drizzled but

and big glasses. The parade of survivors circled the track to start the celebration and once around, other participants fell in behind on the second lap. “It’s something that we’ve been doing since 2001,â€? said Jan Holland of the Bay Buds team. “We said we were going to quit this year, but we decided to keep going because we were close to $50,000.â€? This year, their $5,800 brought the team from the Elgin/Seeley’s Bay area to $52,000. “We’re getting older now‌ it’s hard to keep the interest, but these guys have been awesome. Now we have survivors on the team.â€?

spirits were high as the track was lined with participants for the overnight, 12-hour event that kicked off at 7 p.m. Under the big tent in the Fight Back Zone, Norene Allan and Jan Hopkins, both long-time volunteers were kept busy and dry. “We have a silent auction here, information booths, and you can even get your picture taken,� said Allan, as she hopped up behind a cardboard cutout of a groovy couple and popped her face through one of the holes. Groovin’ for a Cure was the theme of this year’s event where participants dressed in their tie-dyed outfits – from tents to T-shirts – beads

Upper Canada School Board receives governance budget report EMC News – The Upper Canada District School Board’s (UCDSB) Committee of the Whole received the proposed governance budget report for 2013-14 last week. This budget provides funding for the honorarium and activities of the board’s trustees. This budget line also funds the professional development for the trustee liaison officer. Here are key points from the report:

the trustees in fulfillment of their legislative obligations; increase public confidence in public education; and ensure the resources are allocated responsibly. The proposed budget features a number of cost savings compared to the 2012-13 school term including: • 40 per cent reduction ($3,626.60) in meal costs for board meetings; • Over $20,000 saved in teleconference calls; and Trustees • $29,326 saved in webThe trustee’s budget for casting of board meetings. 2013-14 is forecast to be $424,517.

namely ‘courage’ and ‘generosity’. The board’s Committee of the Whole is recommending the Upper Canada District School Board add generosity and courage to our Character Always! traits. That recommendation will go to the June 19 board meeting. Parent messaging system update The board received an update on the information technology department’s project to introduce a more effective parent messaging system. The goal is to provide school staff with the ability to broadcast messages via email, SMS and voice to all parents or subsets of parents (school, family of school or class). As well, the system will allow: • Parents to update personal contact information and preferences through a self-service web interface; • Parent contact information to be synchronized between messaging system and authoritative data sources (e.g. PowerSchool – single authoritative source of student and parent information); and • The interface to form the foundation for all parentfacing, web-based services offered by the UCDSB now

and in the future (e.g. online registration, safe arrival, ecommerce, and other service requests). The plan is to have the news system fully operational by June 2014. Funding employee future benefits liability The board received a report tonight from the business department outlining that, for the board to be in the financial position to pay future benefits (retirement gratuities – $36.9 million, post-retirement benefits – $0.26 million, and Workplace Safety & Insurance – $2.3 million),

it would need to begin setting aside millions of dollars for many years, beginning with approximately $4.5 million in 2013-14. The report further identified that over the next nine years the board would need to accumulate $18 million for that purpose. As well, this money would be funds normally used to fund classroom activities. Changes introduced by the Ministry of Education regarding budget compliance have caused this issue for the board. Committee of the Whole recommended that the Upper Canada District School Board authorize the chair and

director to lobby forcefully to highlight the ability of the board to be compliant in the future retirement gratuity amortization schedule without detracting from funds for student needs. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

The tangible benefits of financial advice Manage Your Money

It seems obvious that the best way to achieve your financial and retirement goals is having access to sound financial advice grounded in a comprehensive financial plan. Among other things, financially advised households are twice as likely to save for retirement at all ages; have significantly higher levels of investable assets at all ages; improve their regular saving for retirement at all income levels; rate themselves as more financially knowledgeable; and are more comfortable making the financial decisions they need to make to plan for their future.* Recent research* on the financial situation of Canadians, our savings and investment behavior, and our attitudes toward retirement and savings advice has demonstrated the significant value of delivering financial advice to the public, at all income and asset levels: • Advice has a positive and significant impact on financial assets. • Advisors perform tasks vital in the financial lives of their clients including improved financial literacy, developing a culture of savings and investment, developing and executing a financial plan, selecting appropriate financial vehicles and products and improving investment decision-making. • Advice positively impacts retirement readiness.

• Canadians trust their advisors, feel positive toward them, and feel more confident they will have enough money to retire comfortably. A comprehensive financial plan should include investment planning, cash flow planning, education planning, estate planning, insurance planning, retirement planning, and income tax planning – and here’s the key – to be successful, your plan must be tailored to you. It makes sense to seek the advice of a financial advisor who will take you through this six-step planning process: 1. Goal setting – to define and prioritize your goals and concerns. 2. Data gathering – gathering all the pertinent financial information to understand your current financial situation. 3. Financial analysis – analysing the data to determine whether you are on track to achieve your financial life goals, and to identify alternative strategies to achieve those goals. This includes a review of how to reduce your taxes; whether you’ll have enough income to cover your retirement expenses; and strategies for protecting your family and income should you become disabled or die unexpectedly.

4. Plan formulation and recommendations – developing a written financial plan which contains recommendations and an action plan for achieving your financial goals and improving your overall financial life. 5. Plan implementation – taking action to implement the solutions that have been agreed upon. 6. Monitoring and plan review – financial planning is not a one time event. You should review your plan regularly, ideally at least annually or as major life events occur. These six straightforward steps are a great start on building your personal financial plan. Be sure you get the advice you need by talking to a financial advisor with the team, qualifications and tools you can count on. * IFIC Value of Advice Report 2012.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Students suffer from backwards Conservative priorities DEAR EDITOR: Why has the federal government reduced the number of student summer jobs it sponsors when the youth job market still has not recovered from the recession? Under the Conservative government, the number of student summer jobs has been cut by tens of thousands since 2006. Fewer students are getting help to create a summer job where they can earn their first work experience and money to pay for their education. This cut couldn’t have come at a worse time. Youth unemployment is double the national rate and there are 231,000 fewer youth jobs in Canada since the recession. It’s a tough economy these days for our young people. Bizarrely, instead of investing in our youth by creating student summer jobs, the Conservatives chose to spend millions of taxpayer dollars on trying to snow job Canadians with their shameless self-

promoting commercials. Every time one of these brutal Harper ads interrupts your NHL playoff game, know that the $95,000 cost of it could have paid for 32 student summer jobs! Or in other words, for everyone second these ads are on the air, another unemployed young Canadian could have had a job, but is going without. It’s a travesty. The government’s priorities seem to have been set in a bubble, completely walled off from the reality that Canadian families are facing. That’s not good enough. We should be doing more to help youth until their job market recovers, not less. Rodger Cuzner, MP Liberal Party of Canada Human Resources and Skills Development Critic

COMMENTARY Celebrating 40 years of mentorship

EMC Editorial – There are some organizations that continue to enrich and make positive contributions to the communities in which they serve, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County is one of them. While Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada marks a milestone 100th anniversary in 2013, locally, BBBS of Lanark County is marking an incredible 40 years serving children through mentoring programs. Since its inception in 1973, the organization has been able to make positive changes in the lives of children and statistics show that those who have been Little Brothers or Little Sisters have gone on to graduate from high school at a rate of 20 per cent higher than the national average. Presently, BBBS of Lanark County serves more than 400 children throughout the county, and have helped them boost self-esteem and social skills through mentorship. In fact, 78 per cent of Little Brothers or Little Sisters that came from a social assistance background don’t need to rely on this form of income any longer. That’s proof of the strides BBBS of Lanark County is making. To help BBBS of Lanark County celebrate their 40th anniversary, consider providing photos for or purchasing a historical scrapbook, that will soon be available throughout the area. The book will chronicle the organization’s journey. Then on Sept. 14, join them as they host their Anniversary Dinner at the Smiths Falls Civitan Club and celebrate past, present and future successes. Congratulations on your 40th anniversary!

The arrival of an ice box was like Christmas time EMC Lifestyle – Until that fateful day in the middle of summer, Mother had no choice but to keep the perishables on a swinging shelf in the dugout under the house. It was a dank and frightening place, and could only be entered from the outside...there was no trap-door in the kitchen like Aunt Bertha had on the next farm. Two big doors tilted against the house, and they had to be lifted to gain entry. It was a place I hated with a passion, and Mother too never quite got used to putting butter and milk on the swinging shelf. Blocks of ice were put in big tubs down in the dugout in the hope that what Mother put down there would be kept chilled enough that we all wouldn’t die from food poisoning. Of course when the ice melted, the big tubs had to be hauled up and emptied a job for my big strapping brothers. But it was Grandfather who changed all that one day when he came out from Ottawa and ordered Father to hitch up the wagon and head into Renfrew. Of course, Grandfather had no intention of riding all the way into Renfrew sitting on a rickety seat on a wagon. He drove ahead in his rumble seat car and

told Father where to meet him. Everett went with Father to help. The purpose of his trip into town was to buy Mother a brand new Barnett ice box! “Uncivilized! That’s what it is!” he said time and again on his regular visits to the farm, and when one of us kids was sent down into the dug-out to bring up milk or butter, or anything else that Mother hoped would keep fresh long enough so that we could eat it. We always had had an ice house, and it was always full of blocks of ice, but never until that wonderful day, did we have an ice box to put the blocks in! Mother spent the entire morning trying to come up with a decent place to put the ice box in the kitchen. It had to be well away from the Findlay Oval, of course. And it couldn’t sit in the window looking out into the grape arbour... that’s where the old pine table sat and where we had our meals. Finally, without even knowing what it would look like, or what size it was, Mother decided it would go catty corner next to the little room off the kitchen that served as Mother and Father’s bedroom.

the entire corner. For reasons unknown to me at the time, Mother made all of us change from play clothes into our next-toSunday best…was it because we were getting an ice box? Or was it because Grandfather would be there for a visit? At any rate, we were spit-clean when Grandfather drove back into the yard, and said the new ice box would be here as soon as Father could get back from Renfrew. Mother in a clean Dan River dress and a fresh white apron, sat on the back stoop waiting for its arrival, and Audrey and I perched on the pump stoop. Grandfather brought out a kitchen chair to the yard. He wouldn’t sit on anything that wasn’t spotlessly clean in case he got a mark on his white flannel pants!

was like we were waiting for the Queen to arrive! And then we saw the wagon round the corner at the far end of the lane, and as it got closer we could see Everett standing with his arms wrapped around what liked like a casket standing on its end. Father pulled the wagon up close to the kitchen door. “My oh my,” Mother said, not even waiting until it was loaded off onto the ground, she leaned into the wagon and rubbed her hands all over the new ice box like it was made of gold! It took the three brothers and Father to lift it off the wagon, with Grandfather telling them to be careful and not scratch it. It was shiny wood, the colour of caramel candy, with silver handles, and I thought was grand enough that it could easily have sat in the parlour. Without even being told, Everett tore to the ice house, and using the big black iron tongs, hauled a block of ice into the house. It was beastly hot in the kitchen with the Findlay Oval pumping out heat, and I secretly wondered if the ice box would cool off the whole house. Emerson swung open the little door on the side, and Everett plopped ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

in the block of ice. Audrey and I were sent down to the dugout for all the perishables, and Mother arranged it all in the ice box like she was laying out blocks for a quilt. Grandfather had thought of everything. While in Renfrew he bought an exact duplicate of our white granite dish pan, and he slid it under the ice box to catch the drip. We sat around the ice box on kitchen chairs, as if waiting for it to tell us something. It sure looked mighty nice in the corner, and I could tell Mother was as proud as if someone had bought her a new car! What a change the new ice box brought to our old log house. Now we had it as well as a telephone, thanks to Uncle Lou. Emerson wondered what we had to do to get running water, and I longed for the day we could just push up a switch and a light would go on just like at my little friend Joyce’s house. Sadly, water from a tap, and light from a bulb were not to be. Both would have to wait until the day we left the farm many years away.

No new native rights granted under draft land claim agreement: Potts By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Do eastern Ontario’s Algonquins have rights, or do they have privileges, under their land claim agreement in principle (AIP)? Well, if you’re Lanark-FrontenacLennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier, you believe that the document gives the Algonquins special privileges. Picking up on a point made during the forum on the preliminary draft agreement in principle at the Perth Civitan Club hall on June 3, that the document would not grant the Algoquins new rights, Hillier said that “I think we need to speak honestly. Rights are things that are shared by all. If they are not shared by all, they are privileges.” However, if you are Bob Potts, principal negotiator and senior legal counsel for the Algonquins of Ontario, their rights are their rights. “The privileges you refer to are not privileges,” said Potts. “They are not privileges, they are rights,” enshrined by the Supreme Court of Canada. “They are what the existing law says,” added Potts, though he admitted that “we have unique relations with the government, but we are not separate.” Hillier, however, respectfully disagreed. “We are all in this together,” said Hillier. “We all have shared responsibilities.” “We’re not going to do it in isola-

“A lot of things in this AIP are solid…and moving in the right direction,” said Hillier, a long-time proponent of land rights. He applauded open forums, which give “a good, frank, and honest discussion (which) allows for better outcomes.” Citing constituent concerns, Hillier also asked Potts “will this agreement hold up? Will it be respected? Will it mitigate problems or will it exacerbate those problems? (I) fear that this will be an ongoing process…that will leave them (municipalities) holding the bag on enforcement.” Potts however was adamant that the AIP “will release government of any further obligations of land or money.” As for the strength of any final agreement to stand up in a court of law, “once it is in legislation,” since it must be passed by both the House of Commons, Queen’s Park, and an Algonquin referendum, “it is right up there with the constitution,” and cannot be arbitrarily changed even by a bill passed by parliament. Looking out at the municipal representatives from North Frontenac, Lanark Highlands Township, Tay Valley Township, and elsewhere, assembled before him, Potts pointed and said, “we will need to talk with you.” Before Hillier and Potts’ spirited but cordial debate, Potts assured the audience that the agreement, and the talking, was far from over. “We are not presuming to have the monopoly on knowledge,” said Potts.

REGIONAL NEWS FORUM From page 10

“We do not have all of the answers. If you know how to build a better mouse trap, we’d love to hear it. If it doesn’t get resolved now, it will get resolved some day.â€? He said that not having an agreement would negatively affect everyone, not just the Algonquins. “It is an impediment to development,â€? said Potts. With an agreement in place, “that can’t help but aid the economy,â€? as one can witness with the development at the old Rockcliffe air base now proceeding as just one example, and there is Algonquin involvement in the new Lansdowne Park development in Ottawa, and along the Rideau Canal. “The Valley has had some economic challenges,â€? said Potts. As an added bonus, “through a treaty‌one of the most important aspects is reconciliation.â€?

Connected to your community

The issue should have been dealt with centuries ago, and at the beginning, the Europeans did in fact accept the first Algonquin petition for redress in 1772 seriously. “It was received by the government of the day with great respect,� said Potts. “There were a series of (British) governors who wanted to participate in this process,� but by the time they were able to act, they were sent off back home to Great Britain, or elsewhere in the British Empire, a new governor would travel across the Atlantic Ocean, and the process would start all over again. “The Algonquins were in charge of this area for a long time,� said Potts, pointing out that they were even collecting tolls for people to sail up the Ottawa River in the 19th century. Potts stressed that this AIP was different than anything that came before it for many reasons.

“This is a preliminary draft,� he said. “It has never been done before. They (land claim agreements) have been simply agreements between partners and then put out to the public.� With this AIP however, public consultation across the province, as far away as Toronto and northern Ontario, is seeking feedback, “to put that feedback into the agreement where necessary.� In fact, members of the team will be going out to cottage country this summer to speak to cottage associations about the AIP. “Nobody, nobody will be displaced from their property,� said Potts. “Nobody is going to be expropriated.� The deal involves the gradual transfer, over a decade or so, of not less than 117,500 acres, and $300 million. The land transfer involves about 200 parcels of land. The money will be put into a tax free account, with an Algonquin corporation set up

which will determine where and when to invest the money. “Our objective is not to spend the principle,â€? said Potts. “It will not be raped and pillaged‌it will be for the benefit of the Algonquins.â€? While the process has been centuries in the making, this latest stretch began in 1991 and “people have asked me ‘Why haven’t we been consulted on this five years ago?’ We can’t negotiate in public. I don’t want that (process) reported in the press. I have negotiated thousands of agreements. I have never negotiated one through the press.â€? Even negotiating amongst people who mutually admire and respect each other can have its onerous phases, and he has not hesitated from telling one of his co-negotiators “in personal terms,â€? what he really thinks of their ideas. “There is no more complex negotiation in Canada than this

one,� he said. “We’re looking at a process that will take another 15 years to complete.� He added that he hoped that some manner of Algonquin referendum would be held by year’s end, and that while some non-natives might not be happy with the agreement, with some issues such as hunt camps

and snowmobile trails still to be discussed, Algonquins too are not entirely pleased with the deal. Walking away from the public announcement of the deal on Dec. 13, 2012, “we didn’t walk out giddily happy,� he said. “We’ve all lived here. We all live here now. We have to learn how to live together.�

Pick up your rain barrels in Westport this Saturday Church on Bedford St. near Concession (Westport). No household limits and no residency requirements are imposed... it’s an ideal time to order one for home but perhaps more importantly, one for the cottage too. Rain barrels effectively and safely reduce the amount of water running directly into your local watercourse or lake (or your storm sewer in the city); they encourage

infiltration of precipitation on your property; and they provide a ready, inexpensive source of excellent water for the garden all summer long. Each barrel comes fully equipped with a leaf and mosquito filter, an overflow adaptor (permitting multiple barrels to be connected in series), 1.2 metres of overflow hose and spigot that attaches directly to a garden hose.

Lyons Goodfellow

The price is $55 per barrel all inclusive to be paid in cash at time of pickup. Additional overflow hose can also be purchased if required. Please order your barrels online by Thursday, June 13 at http://rainbarrel.ca/westportinbloom. Bring your online receipt and your $55 to St. Edward’s Church on Bedford St. near Concession (Westport) on Saturday, June 15 to pick up your barrels.

R0012155684_0613

EMC Events – Always wanted a rain barrel but never got one? You’re in luck...Westport In Bloom and the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation are combining forces to bring you a timely, convenient and inexpensive chance to finally get your rain barrel.

A celebratory dinner is being planned for Sept. 14 to celebrate the monumental occasion. The local childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charity has had a real impact on children throughout the County. Children who have been in mentoring programs see real, positive change. Little Brothers and Little Sisters go on to graduate from high school at a rate of 20 per cent higher than the national average. Seventy-eight per cent of Littles who came from a social assistance background no longer rely on this form of income and a disproportionately high number of former Littles graduate from college or university compared to others in their age group. Currently, more than 400 children are involved in the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs. At a recent celebration, Little Brother Jason spoke about the impact his Big Brother has had on his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the time Randy and I have been paired Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dramatically changed for the better in so many ways. For one, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely made me think about things more,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My self-esteem and social life have had a huge boost and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned so many life lessons from the experiences with Randy. I know now that there is much more to life that I thought there was before meeting him.â&#x20AC;? To celebrate this special anniversary the agency is planning an Anniver-

sary Dinner on Sept. 14 at the Smiths Falls Civitan Club. There will be special presentations, live music and a chance for the community to pause and celebrate the mentoring that has happened and continues to happen throughout the county. Tickets are $25 per person and must be purchased in advance through the office. Big Brothers Big Sisters is trying to reach out to those that have been involved in the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great history and would welcome everyone to reconnect through this special event. Only 150 tickets are available and are on a first come first served basis. The agency is also creating a historical scrapbook, which is available for purchase for $25. Carole Marriner, a local Creative Memories consultant, created the memory book and put together an amazing selection of old and new photos for this book.

A summer picnic will be held with families and children supported by the agency. Press releases about Bigs and Littles have been submitted each month, showcasing the good work of the agency and the strong mentoring programs it runs. Big Brothers Big Sisters started in

Mica Days brings dinner, theatre with a difference of the early miners. End your trip at the minersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bunkhouse to savour a fabulous hot dinner served by Cookie as you enjoy some traditional music by Cratur. This group hails from the heart of the Ottawa Valley and their talented musicianship covers a number of genres with the focus on their Celtic roots. The arrangements stick to traditional Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton fiddle instrumentals. They have been known to throw in a few Valley and Newfoundland tunes as well. Shows are scheduled for Wednesday, July 17, Wednesday, Aug. 14 and Saturday, Oct 12, which is Thanksgiving weekend. Start time in July and Aug. is 7 p.m. and for October the show starts at 6 p.m. As darkness descends, the bunkhouse will be lit

by the glow of traditional mica lanterns and our guests will use the lanterns to make their way back to the parking area at the end of the evening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(We) just wanted to say what a great night we had,â&#x20AC;? said the Faubert family from Hudson, QC, who attended one of the dinner/ theatres last summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From Tobi and Alida to all the volunteers who gave their time, the delicious food, and to the band who supplied the entertainment, it really was a wonderful experience. We are so glad that we went.â&#x20AC;? Tickets are $75 per person (includes all taxes and gratuities) and advance purchase is required due to limited seating. Tickets can be purchased securely through the website at www.heritagemicadays. ca.

A special discount of 10 per cent is available if four tickets are purchased at one time and packages are available for groups of 10 or more. Call 613-267-5340 for details. Heritage Mica Days is in its fourth year of operation and is a program of the Friends of Murphyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Point Park. A full schedule description of all festival events can be found on the website at www.heritagemicadays.ca under the Events Tab.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Approximately 1,700 children in the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville will soon be opening envelopes with the latest Fun With Books, titled, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What Is it?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Founder Bernie Boesveld (left) helped by author Jancy Watkins (right) and others packed all the envelopes for volunteers to deliver. Watkins was inspired to write this story about children, because her own two girls, Dana and Rylee, now older, so enjoyed receiving these books and listening to the stories while looking at the illustrations. This is Watkins first published book.

It is being produced in partnership with MVC, the CSW, Community Stewardship Council of Lanark County and Pinegrove Productions with support from the Ministry of Natural Resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CSW is excited to be a leader in this project combining our efforts to create a product that speaks to our efforts and resonates with our stakeholders and those beyond the watershed,â&#x20AC;? says Barbara King, CSW executive director. To put it all in perspective, a simple stewardship activity, tree planting, will be part of the recognition event. Five silver maples will be planted to help

â&#x20AC;&#x153;beef upâ&#x20AC;? a shoreline vegetated buffer started by MVC with the help of Carleton Place High School students. MVC staff will be on hand with trees, tools and advice about native shoreline vegetation in our watershed. All are welcome to attend the event from 10 to 11 a.m. beside the Mississippi River at 400 Lake Avenue West in Carleton Place (beside the boat launch).

CARD OF THANKS The life of Dorothy May (Burke) McDougall was celebrated at O’Dacre Funeral Home, Perth, Ontario. Dorothy went to reunite with her loving husband Edwin (Eddie) James McDougall (1969) on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 4:25 p.m., following a massive stroke, May 4, 2013. Dorothy’s family would like to thank our many relatives and friends for being so supportive in many ways at a very sad time. O’Dacre Funeral Home and staff fulfilled every wish we had in a very caring manner and also made the journey to heaven for our dear Mom/friend/Nan easier for her and her family. Reverend Grace Vaters, for your comforting words and spiritual guidance, we thank you. Nan would have been overjoyed to hear the “touching” eulogies given by MacKenzie Whan and Paul Morrow. Nothing in the world could put a sparkle in her eyes and smile on her face than her grandchildren, Kim, Paul and Stephanie, and also her great-grandchildren who were flower bearers, Mackenzie, Connor, Breanna, Jack and Cameron. Mom would have been ever so proud of the pallbearers she chose to carry her to eternal rest, Paul Morrow, Bill Young, Gordie, Lloyd and Keith Burke, Bill Cooper. Thanks also to Doctor Tweedie, for endless years (50+) caring for Mom. Mom/Nan will always be remembered by all who had the pleasure of knowing her or perhaps also was one of her euchre friends. We love you, Mom.

And the day God made you mine, I remember the day God took you, And will till the end of time. And when I’m sad and lonely, And everthing goes wrong, I seem to hear you whisper, “Cheer up and carry on.” Each time I see your picture, You seem to smile and say, “Don’t cry I’m only sleeping, We’ll meet again someday.” Lovelying Remembered Robert and family

IN MEMORIAM

Rodney Brown 1954 - 2012 You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he lived. You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see he has left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tommorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him and only that he’s gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, or you can do what he’d want; smile, open your eyes, love and go on. Love All Your Family and Friends MacDONALD – In loving memory of our parents who passed away two years ago. Dad (Cliff) May 13, 2011 and Mom (Pearl) June 17, 2011. We may not have realized when we were younger What wonderful parents we had, But, now we can see all what you have done through the years And that you were a great Mom and Dad. You were always there to remind us that you loved us To comfort, to care, to guide and advise, You taught us to value the love of a family With long lasting, heartwarming ties. You set an example that couldn’t have been better And still is a great help today For the many times when we had to make a decision, We wonder what you would do or say. We miss you both so very much And now more than ever, we know That all along we had the best Mom and Dad And we all love you both so… Always on our minds; Forever in our hearts, Remembered with love xoxoxo Marg & Ron, and family, Lornie & Nancy and family, Floyd and family

GORDON, Rita – In loving memory of a dear Mother, Mother-in-Law, Nanny and Great Nan. June 18, 2001. Our Mother is always with us She’s the whisper of the leaves as we walk down the street She’s the smell of certain foods we remember, flowers we pick, the fragrance of life itself. She’s the cool hand on our brow when we are not feeling well. She’s the breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls us to sleep, the colours of a rainbow, she is Christmas morning. Our mother lives inside our laughter. She’s the place we came from, our first home, and she’s the map we follow with every step we take. She’s our first love, our first friend, even our first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate us not time, not space, not even death.

Dam’d if they do, dam’d if they don’t

Town looks at budgeting big bucks to repair Haggart Island Dams By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – The Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) wants the two Haggart Island dams to be partially demolished, something to which Mayor John Fenik is opposed. “My gut feeling on this is that from 1970 (on)…it has served us well,” said Fenik. “As far as I am concerned, we should rebuild the dams with concrete. Let’s go with the tried and true. The question is, at what point does council want to take on that debt?” The debate over just what to do with the dams has been dragging on for nearly a decade now. A feasibility study in 2004-05 recommended reconstruction of the dams using reinforced concrete. In February 2007 a functional design report stated that the estimated cost of this would be about $800,000. In 2009-10, Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) field studies were carried out at both sites, and in February of 2011, both the Town of Perth and the RVCA agreed to proceed with reconstruction. The costs to replace the Rainbow Bridge, for example, was set at about $280,000 for stage one,. Stage two, replacing the dam on the main channel running parallel to Mill Street, had an estimated cost of between $575,000 and $600,000. In June of 2011, another report, a time design study, was released. However, progress on the issue began to slow in August of 2012, with a pre-tender cost estimate revising the figures upwards, between $460,000 to $500,000, between 65 to 78 per cent higher than expected. Later that same year, in October, a preliminary review by the MNR, found the application incomplete, and the design process was put on hold in November. (Design costs up to that point had already cost taxpayers $35,000.) “At that time, we’ve basically put the engineers on hold,” said Bruce Reid, manager of engineering at the RVCA at the town of Perth’s committee-of-the-whole meeting on Tuesday, June 4. In January of 2013, the MNR, RVCA and the town met to discuss the matter. The MNR appeared in favour of “partially dismantling the dams,” as part of what it called “river restoration,” which it said could be a “possibly less expensive alternative to dam reconstruction,” said Reid. However, this option would require a do-over of the environmental assessment process, and extensive consultation with upstream landowners. “It is a pretty drastic change from what we have known since the early 1970s,” said Reid. The proposed natural rapids would be “rock arch rapids (that) spills like a natural rapids,” explained Reid. “We’re going to end up with a rock arch rapids either way because they (the dams) are crumbling,” said Fenik, pointing out that the MNR has more than 1,000 bridges across the province to contend with. “Of course the MNR wants it (rock arch rapids) to happen, they don’t have to worry about it.” “(The MNR’s) mandate is that they want to naturalize these structures,” said Grant Machan, the town’s director of environmental services. “This is an environmentally feasible approach. From a staff point of view, I would really like to explore this.” “We could do with some direction,” said Reid, which he got from

Though it looks like an idyllic country setting, with a beautiful red footbridge allowing passage for pedestrians to and from Haggart Island, the smaller island dam is also in need of costly repairs. Inset is the Haggart Island Dams plaque. Fenik, though likely not what he had been expecting. concrete dams. “I won’t necessarily agree with his hydro idea.” “I’ve always had a dream of micro-generators there (at the dams),” Fenik stressed that the longer this dam drama is drawn out, the said Fenik of his green energy vision. “I don’t care if it (only) lights more costly it will be for taxpayers. up a light bulb in Stewart Park.” “Every year we delay, it gets more expensive,” said Fenik. Coun. Jim Boldt offered partial support to the mayor’s ideas. “Next budget cycle, I will put money on the table to move this “I will side with the mayor on this,” Boldt said of keeping the forward.”

New owner approaches council with plans for arena improvements From front page

“I think that this is very exciting, and has incredible potential,” said Mayor John Fenik in response to McLean’s request, which was later accommodated. Fenik said he recalled seeing Blue Wings games later in the season, and came away impressed with the passion of play on the ice. “Those kids out there are playing with their hearts,” said Fenik. “That’s what real hockey is about.” However, it was not heart that was up for discussion, but rather that “the devil is in the details,” said Fenik. “You are making a very generous offer. I can promise staff’s full cooperation. (But) from a bureaucratic point of view, that can take some time.” Fenik asked the town’s chief administrative officer, John de Rosenroll, to “make this a priority.” “Our job is to do due diligence,” added Fenik. “To cover the citizens and the corporation… and I need to see the details.” De Rosenroll revealed that “there is a draft agreement which is in progress right now. It is just going through a few edits,” having been looked over by the town’s solicitor. McLean stated that the changing rooms will now be located in the upper hall overlooking the ice, while the old public meeting space will now be moved to the team’s old office space, and a children’s party room will take up residence in the former team change room. “(It is) an absolutely wonderful proposal,” said Coun. Judy Brown. “It has my full support.” Further to this, McLean promised to have one of the Ottawa Senators’ starting lineup, and Spartacat, of course, on hand, to sign autographs during the first Sunday home game, and with the new equipment on hand, “what’s to say you can’t have a concert there?” McLean asked of the improvements which he

The proposal for an improved sound system appears to have won the vote of one councillor, based partially on personal experience. “You are truly a professional, and you put on a professional presentation,” said Coun. Jim Boldt. “I support what you are doing. I spent 13 years announcing Blue Wings games and I can’t imagine what a new sound system would be like!” Boldt added that the improvements to the arena would be a boon to the townowned facility. “I feel like Santa Claus just landed in town… and what do I have to do to get him to stay?” asked Boldt. “I can see people from outside of the area wanting to rent it.” However, Coun. Jim Graff urged a bit of restraint before rushing in to a new five-year term agreement with the team,

with such big changes happening. “Those small details, that is to protect you too,” said Graff. As part of the deal, the town has agreed, pending final council approval, to kick in $3,500 towards the renovations. The agreement was passed “in principal and subject to review by the town solicitor,” who had already requested some minor revisions. Earlier in the evening, McLean had outlined his vision for the team, “to secure junior hockey in Perth for decades to come. Private ownership is the key to survival. The volunteers just aren’t there.” He estimated that the proposed changes to the arena will cost between $125,000 and $150,000. “We are not looking for tax dollars that do not exist,” said McLean, pointing out that the money invested into the arena can be used by other user groups like minor hockey, girls hockey, and figure skating. “We will continue to be a non-profit corporation. We are in this for the passion of it.” He displayed a photo during his presentation of the revamped change room of the Kitchener Rangers team, a glimpse of what might be for Perth. “This stuff matters to kids,” said McLean, who is himself a new dad to a little girl. He hoped that children passing the dressing room will one day dream that “I want to play for the Blue Wings.” The change rooms will be more than just a place for players to don their jerseys though. The hall above the arena will likely be transformed into a place for laundry service, offices, showers, washrooms, weight and work-out rooms. As for the new “state-of-the-art,” sound system, he promised that “we can make that sound just like Scotiabank Place. I’ve done it before,” during his last ownership sojourn with the Smiths Falls Bears. He also promised two

new high definition television screens, which could be installed as soon as this summer. Having endured a season sitting on the current hard seating, McLean resolved at the end of the 2012-13 season that, “you know, I don’t need to have plus seating,” but he certainly wanted better seating, which will come at a cost of about $135 per seat, with 500

to be ordered this summer. “There are outside people who would like to buy this team, from Smiths Falls or Kemptville,” said McLean. “We have local ownership. I walk these streets. This is the shot-in-the-arm that this community needs.” McLean admitted, “We’re not getting a new rink. We’re not getting a new rink in X number of years.”

Canada World Youth arriving earlier in Perth than in past years desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – The young people are coming – and earlier than usual. Canada World Youth is once again drawing nine young Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast for another exchange here in Perth. This time, the youngsters, joined by their nine Honduran counterparts, aged 17 to 21, will be arriving on July 15, before heading off to their overseas placement in Nicaragua on Sept. 15. Daniela Fernandez, the group leader, speaking to Perth’s committee-of-thewhole meeting on Tuesday, June 4, said that since her group, which promotes youth leadership and sustainable development, “we need to find, ideally… volunteer work placements,” in the field

of either agriculture, sustainability, or the volunteer sector. She is also looking for host families to billet the youngsters. Host families will be given a stipend of about $180 per week to cover costs, and must help provide transportation, if necessary, to their work placement. The host family must also have a spare room available for the youngster to reside in during their stay, giving them “a chance to be included as family members,” said Fernandez. In the past, the groups have held fundraising events before they leave, and have volunteered at such local events as the Heritage Mica Festival, and the Stewart Park Festival. Last year, they also held a Latino fundraiser festival, with music and food at the Crystal Palace.

Daniela Fernandez, group leader for the Perth contingent of Canada World Youth, due to arrive partially from Honduras and partially from the rest of Canada in mid-July, addressed the Perth committeeof-the-whole on Tuesday, June 4. The Annual Meeting for the

Council keeps Tay Basin fountain shut-off time at 7 p.m. By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Tay Basinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three fountains will continue to run until 7 p.m. every evening, despite continued complaints from some area residents about noise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hours of operation, they have always been a bone of contention,â&#x20AC;? admitted John Clement, speaking on behalf of the Rotary Club and the Perth Business Improvement Area, at the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committee-of-the-whole meeting on Tuesday, June 4. The Rotary Club contributed about $10,000 towards the fountains in 2005, with the entire system costing about $40,000. Clement said that the evening before he had paid a visit to the basin and â&#x20AC;&#x153;there were no issues with sound.â&#x20AC;? However, when he returned to the basin the next morning, even he admitted that â&#x20AC;&#x153;it was definitely louder.â&#x20AC;? Clement stated that he lives up near the Perth site of the hospital, and that it is not unusual to hear ambulance, police, and even fire signals going off at all hours of the day and night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We live in a small community and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to disturb anyone,â&#x20AC;? said Clement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(But) we feel that they should be on beyond 7 p.m.,â&#x20AC;? though he did offer to mediate the hours, such as turning them off at 7 p.m. in May and October, turning them off at 8 p.m. in June, and off at 9 p.m. in July and August. The current hours are from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. While it had been suggested that different, even smaller nozzles be used on the fountains, Shellee Evans, the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of community services, stressed that that simply was not an option. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You would be looking at changing the fountains,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moving them is not a simple feat. We had to post in the Canadian Gazette (official government publication),â&#x20AC;? when the fountains were first going in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took me a year to get them there. I had to deal with Transport Canadaâ&#x20AC;? since the Tay is a navigable

waterway, and the inclusion of the fountains had to be included on waterway maps as a hazard. If new fountains were in the offing, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most economical (fountain) would be to have a smaller, quieter one,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we were going to a lesser amount (fountain), I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we would have to reapply.â&#x20AC;? Coun. Judy Brown noted that it was a balancing act between aesthetic beauty and noise suppression. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the reasons for having the fountain is for its visual effect,â&#x20AC;? said Brown. Basin-area resident Jeff Colver said he was dismayed that he had to appear before council again on this ongoing issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappointing (that) we have to be here again,â&#x20AC;? said Colver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These arguments are academic. I sit outside just about every dayâ&#x20AC;Ś and there is virtually nobody there after 6 p.m.,â&#x20AC;? in the basin area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find that folks donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even notice them anymore.â&#x20AC;? Unlike someone who lives near the railway tracks or the hospital, where background noise is a pre-existing condition, the fountains are only about eight years old, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was there first. We should all be afforded some manner of peace and quiet in the evening. When they are off, you feel like you are part of the communityâ&#x20AC;Śoften, after 6 p.m., it becomes a residential community. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see that we should be held ransom for someone who, by happenstance, may come by.â&#x20AC;? Coun. Jim Graff agreed that more should have been done to consult with nearby residents and businesses about how the noise would have affected their bottom line and quality of life, though he added that â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that having our fountains on a little later is good for our town.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There really arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that many people out and about,â&#x20AC;? in the basin area after 6 p.m., said Brown.

Mayor John Fenik, however, had a vastly different vision for the basin area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a sailor and that fountain is a waterway,â&#x20AC;? said Fenik, who sat on town council as a councillor when the fountain proposal was first put forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was opposed to the fountain (then),â&#x20AC;? adding that he wants to see finger docks situated in the basin instead, to encourage boaters to stop and moor on the edge of downtown.

Fenik urges hospital unions to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hold the lineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on wages By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Perth Mayor John Fenik has challenged area hospital unions to â&#x20AC;&#x153;hold the lineâ&#x20AC;? on wage increases, like teachers were forced to do under Bill 115, in order to â&#x20AC;&#x153;do their partâ&#x20AC;? to keep the hospital in the black. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will you be asking your unionized employees to hold the line on funding (wages)?â&#x20AC;? asked Fenik at the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committeeof-the-whole meeting on Tuesday, June 4, since â&#x20AC;&#x153;everybody has to do their part?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think your basic premise is wrong,â&#x20AC;? replied Dave Lundy, regional vice-president for OPSEU (Ontario Public Service Employees Union), who was also representing the Smiths Falls and Perth chapter of SOS (Save Our Services). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Austerity has now been proven to be a fraud,â&#x20AC;? he said, citing a University of Massachusetts study, adding that health care can be as sustainable as society chooses to make it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is fair for union

bosses to come here, but there needs to be a greater vision,â&#x20AC;? said Fenik. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a union boss, I wear that label proudly,â&#x20AC;? replied Lundy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is too much administration in our hospitals, and they make too much,â&#x20AC;? adding that, of the positions lost at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital, none have been from administrative positions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The numbers given by the chief executive officer of the hospital (Linda Bisonette) is that there was one job lost,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Judy Brown, who sits on the hospital board. Lundy and Fenik also sparred over Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs), which Lundy charged were created under former Premier Mike Harris â&#x20AC;&#x153;to prevent future health ministers from being directly accountable for cuts. They are undemocratic. They are all appointed.â&#x20AC;? However, Fenik pointed out that Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak wants to get

rid of the LHINs should he form the next government, and that Lundy may not like what plans he has in store for health care. Lundy had approached council about endorsing a motion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; similar to one presented to Smiths Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; town council some weeks ago â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to ask Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health Minister, Deb Matthews to reverse the cuts made at the hospital, like the 12 beds which were closed, and restore services lost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we, as a council, want to remain silent?â&#x20AC;? asked Lundy, though no vote was held on the proposed motion that night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our hospital here is well worth saving, not just part of it. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t close part of it and still have a fully-functioning hospital.â&#x20AC;? He also charged that, even though the hospital has now overcome its deficit position, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this is only the first year of (an) expected five years of cuts across Ontario.â&#x20AC;? The loss of six beds in both Perth and Smiths Falls just underscored, according to Lundy, that

Mayor John Fenik Ontario has fewer hospital beds, per capita, than Mexico, a developing nation, and that 18,500 hospital beds have already been

lost across the province since the mid 1990s. He noted that the hospital was likely the largest single payroll provider in both towns. While only one job was actually lost in the recent cuts, some workers, like nurses, were moved to areas of similar expertise, but at a lower pay scale. He charged that Premier Kathleen Wynneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government â&#x20AC;&#x153;does not believe that this community needs a full service hospital.â&#x20AC;? He also slammed Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier and MP Scott Reid respectively, since a January rally against the cuts in front of their joint Perth constituency office â&#x20AC;&#x153;didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to move either of them to do anything

constructiveâ&#x20AC;? to fight the cuts. While Hillier accused the SOS group of â&#x20AC;&#x153;scaremongeringâ&#x20AC;? this past winter, Lundy said that projections put forward that show that â&#x20AC;&#x153;if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sacrifice, all of the budget will be gobbled up by health care (spending),â&#x20AC;? were, themselves, â&#x20AC;&#x153;just so much scare tacticsâ&#x20AC;ŚIt is just so much manure.â&#x20AC;? He added that the province should do a better job of reversing tax breaks for corporations that do not need them in order to properly fund health care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could spend a lot of time debating economics,â&#x20AC;? said Fenik. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(But) from everyone Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve talked toâ&#x20AC;Śour hospital is not closing.â&#x20AC;?

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Crown prosecutors have withdrawn four of the charges against disgraced financial planner Robert Dickson. Crown attorney Kimberly Moore informed the Ontario Court of Justice in Perth on Monday, June 3, that while Dickson had pleaded guilty to all six counts against him, that her office was withdrawing four of the charges, considering his sentencing on the remaining two charges on Monday, May 27, before Justice John Waugh. Moore asked for the record to be amended to reflect this change. Dickson, 66, of Carleton Place, was placed under a condition sentence of 20 months followed by 36 months proba-

tion on one count of fraud. Dickson had been charged with theft over $5,000, forgery, uttering a forged document, fraud under $1,000, falsifying/destroying books, and false accounts/deceiving. Waugh imposed another three-year probation order on the count of falsifying documents. He also imposed a restitution order against Dickson, to pay back the remaining $74,500 he still owes the estate of Catherine Fraser, from whom he stole $103,000 between 1995 and 2010, when she died, at a rate of about $1,500 a month. For a portion of this time, Fraser was suffering from dementia. He has also been ordered not to have any contact with the Fraser family, barring contact through legal counsel or in court.

Flying solo an honourable move

EMC Editorial - Nobody wants to be seen as a trained seal. And nobody wants to be told what to say and how to say it by someone half their age. Last week, former Conservative MP Brent Rathgeber burst open wide the increasingly fractious rifts in the federal Tory ranks by leaving his party and sitting as an independent member of the house. The response of the Conservatives to Rathgeber’s departure has been, frankly, audacious. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s office called on him to resign his Edmonton-St. Albert seat and run for re-election. Harper’s crew surely should have known that this would have flung the door wide open to accusations of hypocrisy, when they welcomed one of the most famous floor-crossers of all time, Vancouver’s David Emerson, elected as a Liberal in January 2006 - and sworn in to Stephen Harper’s first cabinet a month later. During the 2006 election debates, Harper seemed to suggest that he was okay with an MP breaking away from his or her party and sitting as an independent on a matter of principle. Just last year, according to the Winnipeg Free Press, the Conservatives voted against a New Democratic private members bill which would have required any MP, elected under a party banner, to resign their seat and run for re-election if they wanted to join up with another party. But the bill would have allowed Rathgeber and other MPs to sit as an independent. Rathgeber’s decision to sit as an independent is a principled one, after the Harper government decided to gut his private member’s bill to open up the salaries of federal government employees making more than $188,000. This includes the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. What a gift to CBC opponents, giving them some ammuni-

tion, under the guise of transparency. So why is it all right for, say, provinces like Ontario to have its “Sunshine Lists,” showing how people in fields like medicine, policing, and teaching earn more than $100,000 a year, but when it comes to the federal government - no friend of bureaucrats - suddenly, transparency on the numbers is a no-go area? The amount was raised to $440,000 for full disclosure. Notice how this leaves out, say, members of the senate? Now, we hasten to add that this does not mean that Harper is politically wounded, best left for dead. He’s been in far tighter political spots, like the coalition crisis of late 2008, and he has pulled through. There are still two years to go before the 2015 set-election date, and a cabinet shuffle is in the offing. It offers a chance to clear out some deadwood, and instill cabinet solidarity – and secrecy – by bringing some freewheeling independent-minded MPs inside the tent. Those ministerial offices can certainly quieten some backbench grumbling. You count Harper out at your peril. The year 1996 stands out as a good example for both sides. Liberal MP John Nunziata was kicked out of his caucus for voting against the budget because it did not get rid of the GST. He was re-elected a year later, with an even greater majority than in 1993. Deputy Prime Minister Sheila Copps resigned, because she had pledged to scrap the GST - which, clearly, never happened. She too was re-elected in a quick by-election shortly thereafter.

up the cold tub. For many days the cold rain fell from a grey sky. I figured Spa Gris would be shut down until the skies cleared – but no! I neglected to take the perseverance and intestinal fortitude of children into STEPHANIE GRAY account. Yes, I remember, swimming in the rain as a kid. I also remember splashing in a pool as cold as 65 degrees F, although 68 was my preferred lower limit. During that cold, rainy week, Boychild and Girlchild came home from school and would, sometimes with friends, leap into the cold tub. They wouldn’t necessarily stay in long – kind of a June Polar Plunge – and it was often followed by hot showers and/or hot chocolate. (Hot chocolate in June. Yeesh.) Then came Sunday, the day full of the promise of warmth with that giant yellow orb gleaming in the sky. (“My eyes! My eyes! What blinding scourge is this?” cried cloud-weary eastern Ontarians.) As expected, the kids donned their bathing suits and fled to the cold tub. They splashed in and out. They begged me to join them; last year we had made many whirlpools – loads of fun. I reluctantly agreed. Gotta be a role model and “Play Outside” even if it kills me. Holy smokes. If the water in that pool was 60, I’d be surprised. I did not stay in for long, and I did not go in deeper than my waist. The good news is my feet have been sore and standing in the pool negated any need for me to ice them. The bad news is I think I have hypothermia. Plus, I wore a bathing suit for the first time this season and, oh my, there is a lot of work to do. Let’s just say there will be many...uh...laps around the cold tub in my future.

Perth woman discovers 85 year-old time capsule inside her porch EMC News - When Allida Rubino recently decided to re-finish her front porch she uncovered a hidden treasure, which was patiently awaiting her discovery: a time capsule. Tucked away inside the porch walls was a small tin box, intended for a future homeowner to learn about the day the porch was initially constructed in 1928. Owned by the Lowe family at the time, the red-brick house has a rich history and this capsule just adds to the home’s story. With the words, ‘hair pins’ and a beautiful floral design inscribed on the lid, the tin box was partially rusted, but stood the test of time. Rubino opened the box and inside found seven pennies and a note. The note included the names of those who lived at the house at the time, including Lowe’s and Doyle’s. The letter also described the weather on the day the porch was built. Uncovering an 85-year-old time capsule is one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Rubino was fortunate enough to be the

Private “I” CATHY JAMES

homeowner to discover the tin box. She kept it as a keepsake, but didn’t leave the newly constructed porch without a new hidden treasure: her own time capsule. Rubino included a note, a history on the home as well as a handful of pennies from today’s era, which is especially significant based on the penny’s recent retirement. She also included a price list for a loaf of bread, a dozen eggs, a litre of gas and more. If you were to hide a time capsule inside your home, what would you include What’s happening beside Tim Hortons? If you’ve been through the Tim Hor-

ton’s drive thru off Gore Street recently, you would have likely hit the brakes to catch a glimpse of the activity taking place next door. The former brewing house has been vacant for years, but it will soon be bustling with activity. Regan Lee and Erik Kafrissen plan to open a barbecue smokehouse next month. The Wild Fire BBQ and Smokehouse will open as a take-out eatery with a patio and veranda to accommodate up to 60 customers. Lee and Kafrissen recently told me they plan to renovate the building’s interior over the winter months. But for now, they’ll have a 60-ft. mobile kitchen to serve up a menu they’ve been working on for months. After travelling throughout the States and meeting with some top smokehouse chefs, the two business partners will bring that flavour to Perth. St. John Church celebrates 190 years Next weekend Perth will be packed with kilted runners as the Perth Kilt Run

is set to take place throughout town. The new route will take runners down Brock Street and each runner will get a good look at St. John the Baptist Church. What they may not know is that the parish plans to host its own celebrations that same weekend. As the first Catholic Church in the Ottawa Valley, St. John’s Church will mark its 190th anniversary as a parish and 165 years in the existing building. The parish will host a special Mass on Sunday, June 23 at 3 p.m. with a roast beef dinner to follow at Farrell Hall. Our family will be running the race Saturday evening (leaving the dog and baby at home – neither of whom are responsible enough to take care of the other, so a babysitter will be on hand to help out), and we’ll give a special nod as we huff and puff our way past the Church.

Cycling Tour. Before I start on what I witnessed, I want to say that I know the majority of cyclists are road conscious and courtesy riders. That said, at the four-way stop at Drummond and Herriott streets, cyclists were approaching the northbound stop sign and coming up to cars by the driver’s side. Drivers didn’t know what to do as they were literally surrounded with cyclists who weren’t always stopping, but making their way through the four-way stop and ignoring the rules of the road. I t’s no secret the tour often frustrates local drivers each June. I shared what I saw with a fellow boot camper on Monday morning and we agreed it’s this small majority of cyclists who hurt the tour’s name. With that, whether you’re a driver or a cyclist, respect one another on the roads this summer.

Students enjoy air fun EMC News - As is customary annually at St. John, the world of AirBounce Amusements came to the school in the form of several giant inflatable games and obstacle courses from AirBounce’s healthy selection. The high school Student Council had previously helped that day with the equally large project of setting up the attractions, and by around midmorning, the first classes were called down to experience the fun for themselves. This year, the attractions had to be squeezed into the gym due to storm warnings, and this gave everybody a lot less space than the regular outdoor field. However, they managed to miraculously fit everything in anyway. Throughout the day, all the students in the school were called down by grade to the gym for an hour at a time, and the entire experience, despite its unusual lack of space, was quite enjoyable overall. The Intermediate division held this year’s track and field meet recently, which took place for a full school day and consisted of 1,500, 800, 400, 200, and 100 meter races, ball throw, long jump, triple jump, high jump, standing long jump, and shot put. The weather on the day of the meet was rather rainy and cold. However, a movie-viewing session at the end of the day was an enjoyable way to close the event.

Visit to the Silver Queen Mica Mine by the Perth Historical Society EMC Events - For our final meeting of this season on June 19, 2013, we will visit the Silver Queen Mica Mine site at Murphy’s Point Provincial Park. Tobi Kieswalter, manager of the interpretative and heritage education programme, will lead us through our walk. This walk will take us down the trail with scheduled stops along the way, highlighting the story of the mining operation and area’s history. The trail is about 1.5 km round trip and the hike will take about 1.5 hours. The Silver Queen Mine, one of several mines in the area, was a small operation producing mainly mica, but also apatite (also known as phosphate) often found alongside mica, and feldspar. At its peak of operations during the early 1900s, the mine employed less than 30 men, producing mostly small sheets of mica. Mica was used by the electrical industry as an insulator in items such as toasters, and as windows in items such as lanterns. The mined product, packed in barrels, was sent via the Rideau Canal to factories in eastern Ontario and western Quebec. The Silver Queen Mine’s other minerals also found a use: Apatite as a component in the manufacture of fertilizer; and a particular kind of feldspar, perthite, was used in making porcelain and

Perth

HISTORICAL SOCIETY Times Past earthenware. Due to its small size, the Silver Queen Mine’s life was short – from about 1903 to 1920 – when larger and more economically produced deposits of the minerals were found elsewhere. Today, it is an interesting example of early mining life in our area. For directions to the Silver Queen Mine, go south on Rideau Ferry Road about 6 km to County Road 21 (Elm Grove Road). Turn right and continue about 13 km to the Lally Homestead parking lot. Refer to our website at www.perthhs.org for directions

and map. There is a parking charge at Murphy’s Point Park – regular $14 and seniors $11 per car. For this event, the parking charge will be collected at the Lally Homestead parking lot upon arrival. For those interested in car pooling, meet by 6:30 p.m. at the Perth Legion, 26 Beckwith St. E. As there is no fee for this meeting, it is suggested that the Toonie Fee could be used toward the parking charge. Thank you to the Perth Legion for permission to use their parking space for the evening. For those driving directly to the Park, meet at the parking lot for the Lally Homestead at 7 p.m., just across the road from the start of the trail to the Mine. The evening will also include the launch of the Tay Valley Township’s 200th Anniversary logo. A cake cutting will help to mark this occasion. The Perth Historical Society is dedicated to learning about and popularizing our history. It is a forum for discussion and celebration of our rich area culture and heritage. The meetings are open to the public. A “Toonie Fee” applies for each meeting.

Student Emily Pike’s group first suggested a youth delegate at a teen conference back in May, at Perth and District Collegiate Institute, which caught Mayor John Fenik’s attention.

Youth delegates sought for parks, recreation committee By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Perth Mayor John Fenik is seeking two high school delegates to fill new spots on the parks and recreation committee. Fenik was following up on an earlier presentation he attended by young people at Perth and District Collegiate Institute (PDCI), where they advocated for a representative on town council. “In discussing this with the CAO (chief administrative officer) I wouldn’t put a young person through the committee-of-the-whole (COW) process,” said Fenik during the COW meeting on Tuesday, June 4, which began at 5:15 p.m. and did not wrap up until 9:07 p.m. “That would be cruel and unusual.” Fenik said he wanted to offer spots to a delegate each from PDCI and St. John Catholic High School.

Your time is valuable. Spend it wisely.

“It would introduce them to local government,” said Fenik, with the delegates being selected by the respective school principals. He did concede though that he was uncertain as to whether it would be “a guest chair, (or if) we wanted to make it a full voting position. (But) there is a synergy there between young people and parks and recreation.” The COW voted to amend the terms of reference for the parks and recreation committee to allow the two student delegates as voting members. Other municipalities, in places like Brampton and Mississauga in the west-end Toronto suburbs, have mayor youth councils. Fenik’s proposal is similar to the U.S. House of Representatives where delegates from places like the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and Puerto Rico can vote on committees, but cannot vote on the floor of the chamber for general votes.

Woman to put face to mental health in upcoming awareness walk By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC News - For more than 30 years Lynn Sedgwick quietly battled mental illness. That was until a series of life events forced her to quit her job and focus on getting “crazy” healthy. This month the Williamstown resident will take her story to the streets of eastern Ontario in hopes of encouraging others to get the help they need. Lynn’s Walk will begin June 26 from her hometown of Williamstown, Ont., and will stretch into more than 40 communities including Kemptville, Merrickville, Smiths Falls, Perth, Belleville, Kingston, Gananoque, Brockville and Prescott for a total of about 25 km a day. “It is very inspiring to know that she would come forward and really put a face to mental health,” said Joanne Ledoux-Moshonas, manager of mental health promotion at the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Cornwall office. “Her courage is really going to help others seek help.” Sedgwick certainly hopes so. She credits the programs at the CMHA and the efforts of her doctor and medication as having an incredible part to play in getting her to the place of independence and actively living with mental illness that she is today. “It’s very helpful to listen to other stories and open up,” Sedgwick added. “CMHA taught me to really cope with my own illness.” That’s why she hopes to raise $10,000 for the Cornwall chapter of CMHA. So far Lynn’s Walk has brought in almost $4,000, including $3,200 from a recent baseball tournament in Williamstown alone. “We have a spectacular community,” Sedgwick said. The eastern Ontario woman’s journey to living with mental illness began when she was about 12 years old. For many years she struggled with an undiagnosed condition until she was in her 30s and was told she had chronic panic disorder and depression. At the time her youngest of two sons was about two years old and she was working full-time as an early childhood educator. She started to work with doctors and take medication to address her condition but things started to get bad once again a little less than two years ago when her doctor instructed her to retire from education to focus on her health fulltime. At this point Sedgwick’s symptoms had become so severe that she began cutting herself. “I felt as though it was getting in the way of my life and I wanted the pain to stop,” she said. At first she felt like she was taking a step back in her treatment, but soon discovered the power in walking and the release it gave her. “I spent a lot of time walking and crying when I was walking. A lot of the pain was coming out,” she said.

On June 26 Lynn Sedgwick of Williamstown, Ont., will begin her month-long walk across many communities in Lanark, Leeds-Grenville in support of the Canadian Mental Health Association. To donate and learn more go to www. lynnswalkformentalhealth.weebly.com. The pain of mental illness is not visible to most, but can be debilitating and daunting to the individual who must battle it every day. For Sedgwick the mornings were the worst time of day. At times she would have a panic attack while still asleep and wake up unable to breathe. These episodes eventually caused her to fear sleep. “There have been days for me where brushing my teeth I’d need a three hour nap,” she said. Sedgwick hopes her walk will not only encourage others to find the support they need, but also educate those unaffected by mental illness to better understand and be accepting of those who are. “It’s so important to reach out a hand. That in itself can bring you out; it could save a life,” she said. The funds Sedgwick is raising for CMHA will be used to provide prevention education to area high schools, which currently receives no government funding support. “Prevention is intervention,” Ledoux-Moshonas said. The emotional and physical toll mental health takes on a person can be significant. Sedgwick

likens the dips into depression as equivalent to falling down a well. “It’s dark and it’s cold and you know you have a job ahead of you to get out of there,” she said. Many in the community have come forward to help Sedgwick and others with this climb in the year that she’s been planning Lynn’s Walk. A number of provincial parks have offered overnight accommodations, 1000 Islands RV Centre is donating the use of an RV for the duration of the event and the Ambassador Hotel in Kingston has offered a night. In many ways Lynn’s Walk has been an education tool, including Sedgwick herself. “It’s just been an eye opener for me to see the support that’s out there,” she said. If you would like to support Lynn’s Walk and the work of CMHA you can do so by donating online through a secure link to CMHA’s paypal account at www.lynnswalkformentalhealth. weebly.com and select the ‘how you can help’ tab at the top. Updates on her progress throughout the walk can be found on Facebook under Lynn’s Walk or on her blog at the website above.

TAY VALLEY TOWNSHIP ANNOUNCES LOGO FOR 200TH ANNIVERSARY Celebrations of the 200th anniversary of Europeans’ settlement in Tay Valley Township will be happening throughout 2016. Our new anniversary logo will promote these events. As a symbol of the early traditions of the first settlers in Tay Valley Township (historically comprised of Bathurst, Burgess and Sherbrooke townships), the fiddler was the key person at the centre of community gatherings such as barn dances, fairs and socials. The circular shape of the logo depicts a circle of community, while the water flowing through is symbolic of the abundant rivers, lakes and streams that are an integral part of life in Tay Valley. Logo designer Annie Dalton lives and works at one of the first settler’s homes on the Upper Scotch Line. She also designed the signs for the hamlets in Tay Valley Township, incorporating characteristics of each community. Dalton has an extensive portfolio of graphic design on both local and international levels. Please join the members of Tay Valley’s 200th Anniversary Working Group on Wednesday, June 19th at the Silver Queen Mine for the launch of the logo. The Perth Historical Society will be hosting a tour of the mine from 7 to 9 p.m. at Murphys Point Provincial Park, and you are welcome to enjoy a taste of the logo on a cake to be served at the end of the tour. More information about the 200th Anniversary can be obtained on the township’s website or by contacting the Planner, Noelle Reeve, at 613-267-5353. Families and community groups planning homecomings and anniversary activities are encouraged to get in touch with the Township office and ask about using the logo.

Perth library sees doubling of e-book loans desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – E-books have almost doubled in popularity at the Perth library. Delivering her 2012 report into the health of the library, Elizabeth Goldman, chief executive officer and chief librarian of the Perth and District Union Library, said that about 5,605 e-books were downloaded last year alone, double the amount from the year before, as people continue to swap paper for digital. “We had the e-books for several years, but now we have e-readers that have books preloaded so that people can see how they can use it, and if they want to buy one,” said Goldman during her presentation at the Perth committeeof-the-whole meeting on Tuesday, June 4. She added that the library may also experiment with loaning iPads this summer. But the printed word, and other library favourites, were also flying off the shelves, with 137,875 items being checked out. The number of people using the library was also up 3.3 per cent, to 124,648. About

3,000 people attended library programs, and library staff answered about 9,357 questions. About 115 children have been signed up for the summer reading program, and a customer survey also found that the service was rated “good” or “great.” “Anecdotally, we know the library is a contributing factor to people deciding to move here,” said Goldman. She was very proud of the library’s infant program, which brings mothers and their children in to the library. “We feel that all babies in the county need this,” she said of the “Baby Time,” program, “so that by the time they get to kindergarten, they may not need our summer reading program.” The library posted a small surplus for 2012, with its clientele coming not exclusively from Perth. According to the report, 43.3 per cent of library users came from Perth, with Tay Valley Township residents in second place at 27.9 per cent, Drummond/North Elmsley Township in third at 23.6 per cent, and Lanark Highlands Township rounding it all out at 5.2 per cent.

Museum expansion celebration EMC Events - The Middleville & District Museum has had a major facelift and there will be an expansion celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony on Sunday, June 23. With a forceful vision of much needed expansion, the curator of the museum, Alice Borrowman, guided the process of building an addition to accommodate the growing collection of pioneer and farming artifacts that are so treasured by the surrounding community. A generous grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation in 2012 allowed the construction to proceed and the Township of Lanark Highlands bridged the gap to allow the completion of the project. Many hours of volunteer labour were vital to the project and the long list of helpers will be feted at the celebration The additional display space allows for the preservation and display of many new large items. The Lanark Township “Old Baptist Manse,” donated by Marilyn McKay Gerhardt, was moved and the logs of the historic pre 1850s cabin were reassembled in a special corner. The family of the late Clive Rodger has placed his 1918 Chevrolet Model T truck on loan and equipment from early community telephone companies is being assembled to accompany the 1922 Model T

Ford used by linesman Lawrence Gibson while maintaining the lines for the Hopetown Telephone Company. Bob Reid has donated an ox cart, used in the mid 1800s, that he rescued from the Rodger farm in Arklan decades ago and Raymond Blackburn has donated his grandfather’s Royal Mail stage used in 1912. The expanded museum also allows for the spacious display of implements and artifacts once needed to survive and thrive on farms as well as the collection of early Canadian tools, featuring locally made wood planes, treasured by long time collector the late Dick Jones. Everyone is invited to attend the Grand Opening with the reception beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 23. The official ribbon cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. will be followed by the chance to view the displays in the new facilities. Admittance is free and refreshments will be served. The Museum is now wheelchair accessible. The Middleville & District Museum is located at 2130 Concession Rd. 6D, Middleville, Ontario. Open on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and holiday Mondays from Victoria Day to Thanksgiving from 1 to 4 p.m. or by appointment at 613259-5462. For more information: www.middlevillemuseum.blogspot.com

A grant has also opened up the likelihood of a teen creative computing lab, allowing teens to edit music, create graphic novels, create iPhone apps, and make videos. Computer tutoring is also being expanded, as is the Friends of the Perth Library group. “I think we are seeing an increased use of computers,” said Goldman. “There is not a lot of research being done in books or encyclopedias any more.” The lobby space will also get a bit of a make-over. “There are lots of doors and no lines of sight,” Goldman said of the space straight through the Herriott Street doors.

The stream of people in and out of the Perth and District Union Library’s Herriott Street doors is constant, though more people are walking out with ereaders under there arms than the oldfashioned dead tree variety of books.

Catholic Parish celebrates 190th anniversary EMC Lifestyle - “Religion had a remarkable impact on the social, cultural and educational life of Upper Canada and Ontario. In the 19th century, it formed a structure of order, familiarity, and a sense of tradition and place in a developing community. Perth played a prominent role in the regional development of churches in Eastern Ontario, and several residents became known for their contributions to religion and education in Canada.“ This statement by the late local historian, Larry Turner (see endnote below) comes to mind as we celebrate the 190th anniversary of St. John the Baptist Catholic Parish and the 165th anniversary of our church on Wilson St. East in Perth. The author does not confine the influence of religion only to the past, as he draws attention to the fact that “St. John’s Roman Catholic and St. James Anglican, with their tall spires, still inspire Perth’s skyline.” Each of the churches of Perth has its own significant history and unique contribution to the impressive tapestry of culture and life in this area. I will describe briefly the church I know best. St. John the Baptist’s rich history and “remarkable impact” on Perth and district is well documented in “175 Years of Faith: The Story of the Parish of St. John

the Baptist, Perth 1823-1998.” Our parish website (stjohnsperth.com) is another source of information on the history of our Parish in the “developing community” of Perth and district, as well as in the present day. When established as a parish in 1823 by Bishop Alexander Macdonell, ours was the first Roman Catholic Parish in the entire Ottawa Valley and one of only six in all of Upper Canada (Ontario). Missionary priests had been responding to the needs of Roman Catholic settlers of the area since 1815, a year before the 1816 founding of Perth as a military settlement. This missionary activity continued until 1823, when Father John MacDonald was appointed resident pastor of the newly established Parish of Perth. The first church, St. Bridget’s, built in 1820 at Harvey and Drummond Streets, remained the centre of parish life until Father John McDonagh oversaw the construction of the current church, placed under the patronage of St. John the Baptist. The first Mass was celebrated on Christmas Eve, 1848 and the church was consecrated on August 15,1849. In 1885, the spires were added. Renovations, completed in 1900, added 50 feet to the church’s length to accommodate new altars, the sacristy and seating for 150 more parishioners. The front entrance was changed significantly, and the balcony was added. St. John’s, the oldest stone church in Perth, is noted for its vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, Stations of the Cross, and pews scaled to the smaller

Religion Today FATHER BRIAN McNALLY St. John Catholic Church

physiques of that era. Located at the south end of Brock Street, it is one of the “vista-views” that originally defined the boundaries of the community. Three founding pastors are interred beneath the church, with their memorial stones placed in the walls near the sanctuary. The main celebration of this 190th Anniversary takes place on Sunday, June 23. The Anniversary Mass will be at 3 p.m., with Archbishop Brendan O’Brien of Kingston presiding, to which all are invited. This significant gathering will provide a special opportunity for the homecoming of priests and religious sisters who have served at St. John’s, as well as for sisters, clergy and laity with ties to the Parish. I thank the Lord for His countless blessings upon St. John the Baptist Parish over the past 190 years, and pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon our faith community and upon all those within the still “developing community” of Perth and district.

Tim Murray Trio plays jazz in Almonte June 22 EMC Entertainment - Something special has been happening in Almonte - house concerts! They have brought excellent jazz music to the town and to the region. Intimacy is key. Sitting in someone’s living room, you can hear and see the musicians up close and in true fidelity as they create their music. For the musicians, proximity to the audience can make the music more like a conversation. It costs far less than more established venues and provides an opportunity to meet the musicians, have some bring-your-own wine and cheese and make new acquaintances. The Peter Hum Trio from Ottawa and the Miguel de Armas Trio have given two recent shows. It was a first for both groups and they loved offering their music in a friendly comfortable home. The quality of the music was outstanding. Repeat and referred guests to the JazzNHouse concerts are many.

They have played together since 1959! The Tim Murray quintet was formed in 1960 and quickly became the mainstay of the Queen’s University and Kingston jazz scene. Fast forward through various gigs and concerts during their working lives to 2008. Since then the group played to three sell-out audiences at the NAC Fourth stage. In 2012, they released two CDs and a short video which can be seen on YouTube. In the trio format, the group still honours its jazz heroes such as Oscar Peterson, Clifford Brown, Horace Silver and Ray Brown. Putting an emphasis on melody and swing, the Tim Murray Trio’s book features standards, jazz classics by composers such as Horace Silver, Keith Jarrett, Gerry Mulligan, Wayne Shorter and Thelonius Monk as well as original compositions by Charley Gordon.

Boston bombings causing anxiety for worry-prone children By DESMOND DEVOY Desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The alleged killers may be caught or killed, and Boston continues to heal, but for some local children, the terror of the Boston Marathon bombings April 15, struck too close to home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Boston bombings triggered a lot of anxieties for a lot of my clients,â&#x20AC;? said Cathy Buffam of the Perth office of Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(They felt) their world was not safe.â&#x20AC;? While regular children, and even adults, struggled to understand the senseless killings near the raceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finish line, the attacks made worry-prone kids even more anxious. Buffam described being anxious as â&#x20AC;&#x153;worried thoughts that are totally not grounded in reality,â&#x20AC;? during a speech at The Stewart School on Wednesday, May 15 entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Your Child is Anxiousâ&#x20AC;? outlining what parents can do to help worry-prone kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One incident can trigger anxiety in a child for years,â&#x20AC;? said Buffam, like the Boston bombings, or something even closer to home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One incident can generalize through your entire life,â&#x20AC;? and can lead to â&#x20AC;&#x153;the feeling (that) something bad is going to happen, I just know it.â&#x20AC;? But she cautioned that medicating the problem is very often a last resort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can do a lotâ&#x20AC;Ś of interventions at homeâ&#x20AC;? as parents, without having to resort to medication, or even referring to an agency like Open Doors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anxiety is quite treatableâ&#x20AC;ŚVery few people or children end up on medication because there are so many other treat-

ments. Medication is not the norm but it can be used in extreme circumstances.â&#x20AC;? Sometimes feelings of anxiety are good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anxiety is why we are all here,â&#x20AC;? said Buffam, pointing out that, for our caveman ancestors, fears of, say, saber tooth tigers, was a real danger. We see this even now in infants and babies who â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;make strangeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; around new people. This is normal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a problem when it continues for a chunk of timeâ&#x20AC;Ś and it impacts on your life,â&#x20AC;? said Buffam. If it continues â&#x20AC;&#x153;over a month, start to pay attention.â&#x20AC;? Buffam admitted that â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went through it myself but I worked through it.â&#x20AC;? Parents can help in many ways, but parents can also be enablers, sometimes feeling that they are doing the right thing to protect their child but, in fact, they are further engraining their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behaviour, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who avoid a lot tend to stay at home a lot,â&#x20AC;? she said. If a child is not exposed to the world beyond their doors, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be expected to confront their fears, and later in life, â&#x20AC;&#x153;worry-prone kids can end up with anxiety problemsâ&#x20AC;Ś People expect the worst when they are used to processing information that way.â&#x20AC;? Sometimes, a parent may also share some anxiety traits as well, and may even tell a child, for example, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not good at parties either. Maybe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave early.â&#x20AC;? Be honest with your child, but also try to get to the heart of the matter, by saying something like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, I get nervous too (at parties), but I use it as an opportunity

Cathy Buffam of the Perth office of Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth, spoke at The Stewart School on Wednesday, May 15 on the theme of helping oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anxious child. to work through itâ&#x20AC;Ś Avoid the protection trap. At Open Doors, anxiety disorders are â&#x20AC;&#x153;a common source of referrals.â&#x20AC;? A state of high anxiety can be taxing on a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind, but it also takes its toll on parents as well since anxious children can be very demanding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reassurance is one of the things you have to do over, and over, and over,â&#x20AC;? said Buffam. There are many stressors in family life to start with, but some, like physical and/

or mental abuse, substance abuse, and divorce, or even an unpredictable family lifestyle, can set off anxiety in a child. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are environments where people are not very supportive,â&#x20AC;? admitted Buffam. Buffam stressed that it is important to accept a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns, and listen to a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perceptions of his or her problem, and quietly correct any misinformation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a good idea to encourage a child to approach a feared situation one step at a time, until it is familiar and manageable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are afraid of something, you have to start off with the smallest little step,â&#x20AC;? said Buffam. It is also important to have structured, consistent expectations for your child. For some kids with separation anxiety issues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sleep with mom and dad (in the room) I could die â&#x20AC;&#x201C; might be the thinking process of a child who is used to having his or her parents sleep nearby in their early years because of health concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sleep with Mom and Dad, I could die,â&#x20AC;? the child could also think. One child she worked with could not sleep on their own until the age of seven. One way to combat this is through incentives and rewards â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for example, sleeping alone for X number of nights will mean that the child is rewarded with a trip to the movies. Even in adult life, people still harbour fears from their childhood. One co-worker of Buffamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was still afraid of bees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (bees) donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually care about you,â&#x20AC;? said Buffam, who pointed out that waving, screaming and running away may actually draw a beeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention to

you, rather than drive it away. Taking her co-worker out to a small field near their offices and hanging out with some bees made a big difference, with repeated visits. Also, flooding your child with facts to combat misinformation can bring an older child around to seeing just how unrealistic the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fear can be. A child who is worried about a plane crash can be told the real statistics about air travel safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The numbers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t event have to be real, or you can Google it,â&#x20AC;? advised Buffam. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How many flights go up in the air every day, it is phenomenal about how many plane crashes there (actually) are. If one assumes, for example, that about 800 planes leave Montrealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trudeau airport every day, about 1,000 leave Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pearson and 200 leave Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Macdonald-Cartier, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a high number of flights that take off and land safely, that fly over eastern Ontario alone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t force someone to do something, but you can coach them,â&#x20AC;? added Buffam, noting that you can tell your child, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in charge? You, or your worry brain? You can boss it back, or let it boss you.â&#x20AC;? Other steps to help your anxious child can include avoiding stimulants, getting regular exercise and sleep, practicing relaxed breathing and progressive muscle relaxation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are always going to be off days,â&#x20AC;? she warned. If there are setbacks, remember: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one dayâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to be a cheerleader. (And) if a child is beside themselves, in tears, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use logic, just comfort them. We respond to touch and that can be soothing and relaxing.â&#x20AC;?

Bartleman releases new book, available for signing at The Book Nook EMC Events – James Bartleman has a new book, The Redemption of Oscar Wolf, and he will be appearing at The Book Nook in Perth on June 29. In the early 1930s, Oscar Wolf, a 13-year-old Native from the Chippewas of Rama Indian Reserve, sets fire to the business section of his village north of Toronto in a fit of misguided rage

against white society, inadvertently killing his grandfather and a young maid. Tortured by guilt and fearful of divine retribution, Oscar sets out on a lifetime quest for redemption. His journey takes him to California where he works as a fruit picker and prizefighter during the Great Depression, to the Second World War

where he becomes a decorated soldier, to university where he excels as a student and athlete, and to the diplomatic service in the postwar era where he causes a stir at the United Nations in New York and in Colombia and Australia. Beset by an all-too-human knack for making doubtful choices, Oscar discovers that peace of mind is indeed

hard to find in this saga of mid-20thcentury aboriginal life in Canada and abroad that will appeal to readers of all backgrounds and ages. Bartleman is the bestselling author of a novel, As Long as the Rivers Flow, and the memoir Raisin Wine: A Boyhood in a Different Muskoda. A member of the Chippewas of Rama

First Nation, he was the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario from 2002 to 2008. He lives in Perth. Meet Bartleman from noon to 2 p.m. at The Book Nook, 60 Gore St. E. as he will be available for a book signing. Call 613-267-2350 or visit thebooknook@bellnet.ca for more information.

Shortbread competition heats up EMC Events - The honour of two sides of a Perth family is at stake in the first Perth Kilt Run Shortbread Competition on June 22 this year. Cousins Vicki Hough and Dawna Headrick will go head to head, each with secret shortbread recipes inherited from different sides of the family. Vicki’s father, Russell Griffith, was declared King of Perth Shortbread before his death and passed the recipe on to his offspring. It wasn’t unusual for Mr. Griffith to make huge batches of this delicacy. At Christmas, he baked over 90 dozen, gifting family and friends, his doctor, dentist and sundry others. Vicki will be using the recipe in this year’s competition to honour her father’s memory. Dawna inherited hers from her mother and is sworn to secrecy as to its contents. The classic shortbread recipe is deceptively simple. Simple because it has only three ingredients – butter, flour and sugar; deceptive because the

quality can greatly vary depending on proportions, humidity, water quality, room and oven temperature and of course, variations on the basic recipe. It is common to use flavouring like vanilla or almond, or to use icing sugar instead of granulated. Some people use salted butter instead of unsalted, or even add salt, while others consider any variation from the classic recipe a sacrilege. Alistair Walker, who is the greatgrandson of Joseph Walker, the founder of the competition’s sponsor, will be representing Walker Shortbread of Scotland and will act as one of the three judges. Perhaps Mr. Walker could be convinced to bring some samples of the world-famous Walker Shortbread so the people of Perth can compare our efforts with an original Scottish recipe. Good luck to Vicki and Dawna and to all the participants.

Battery Recycling The most common sources of dry cell battery waste are from the following items: Portable radios, flashlights, smoke alarms, pagers, cell phones, laptop computers, UPS systems, hearing aids, watches, back up power systems, emergency lights and power tools

ALL OF THESE BATTERY TYPES ARE RECYCLABLE TODAY – NO TIPPING FEES The metal components can be reused, and although spent batteries comprise less than 1% of all landfill waste, they account for over 88% of all toxic heavy metals found in landfills (ie, mercury, cadmium etc) We have containers set up at the three Municipal waste sites – Stanleyville, Maberly and Glen Tay as well as at the Municipal Office on Harper Road. (For more information please contact the Public Works Department at 613 267 5353 or visit our website at www.tayvalleytwp.ca) Space provided through a partnership between industry and Ontario Municipalities to support waste diversion programs

Calls for police-hospital protocol to deal with mentally ill suspects By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – A leading local policing board veteran is calling for a protocol between local police and area hospitals to deal with the mentally ill. George Braithwaite, a member of the Lanark Highlands police services board (PSB), told the Lanark County Association of Police Services Board’s quarterly meeting at the Mississippi Mills municipal offices that the City of Hamilton, Ont., had signed an agreement between its police force and area hospitals. Police officers can wait a “long time until that person is seen by a doctor,” said Braithwaite, the county PSB’s representative to the Ontario association of PSBs. “Police officers spend a lot of time in hospital,” said Braithwaite, waiting to hand off a mentally ill patient who is “acting out” to be put into proper care. The Hamilton protocol reduced the time police spent in hospital waiting rooms keeping an eye on patients before handing them off from 122 minutes to 70 minutes, on average. “It would reduce the cost of policing,” said Braithwaite. “Officers would not be out of a job, their time would be better deployed.” OPP Staff Sgt. Derek Needham reported that about 80 per cent of OPP officers already receive three-day

training on how to deal with mentally ill, or suspected mentally ill, people that they come into contact with. “It gives officers some of the best practices and tactics on how to deal with someone who is in crisis,” said Needham. “There is a very strict (criterion) that we have to adhere to before we apprehend them.”

“It gives officers some of the best practices and tactics on how to deal with someone who is in crisis.” STAFF SGT. DEREK NEEDHAM ONTARIO PROVINCIAL POLICE

He pointed to a form that officers fill out as they are waiting to “streamline (the) conversation,” which can take off as much as 20 minutes worth of talks between officers and doctors. But hospital wait times apply just as much to police officers as they do to the general public. “When we bring someone to an Photo by DESMOND DEVOY emergency room, we get triaged,” said At left, Mississippi Mills town Coun. Denzil Ferguson chats with Lanark Highlands police services board Needham. “Sometimes, we get sent to the back. (But) we will look at the pro- member George Braithwaite at the Mississippi Mills council chambers outside of Almonte on Wednesday, June 5, during the quarterly county PSB association meeting. tocols.”

Shared, county-wide speed sign ‘dead in the water’ EMC News – One speed sign to unite them all? Not anymore. The county’s second-hand, shared, speed sign has warned its last motorist about going over the posted speed limit, and has been put out to pasture. And there seems to be no burning desire to go down the road of sharing a trailer-mounted unit around again. “The status on the current sign is that it is out of service,” said Neil Fennell from Tay Valley Township, and chair of the county’s speed sign committee. “It is likely history,” and beyond sense repairing, he told the Lanark County association of police services boards quarterly meeting at the Mississippi Mills council chambers on Wednesday, June 5. “The shared sign concept is, I believe, dead in the water,” said Fennell. “Essentially, it is a discontinuance of the unit.” “We have to dispose of it as an asset,” said Insp. Gerry Salisbury, detachment commander for the Lanark County OPP. Going around the room, many communities expressed their interest to, essentially, go it alone when it came buying speed signs. Carleton Place: Has purchased its own. Mississippi Mills: Will purchase its own. Tay Valley Township: Will purchase its own. Has resolved not to join any county-wide speed sign purchase. Perth: Will utilize the former Perth Police Service speed sign that it still has in its arsenal. Montague Township: Will not be purchasing a sign at this time. Drummond/North Elmsley: Will not be continuing on with the county-wide program. Lanark Highlands Township: Will

purchase a trailer-mounted unit, a decision passed by their committee-of-thewhole on Tuesday, June 4. Beckwith Township: Will buy a sign on its own, but is still determining. Has discussed a joint program with Montague. The protocol governing the countywide speed sign was then repealed, and will go back to the individual PSBs for their dismissal off of the books. Fennell asked Salisbury if a township/town operated unit could be affixed with OPP stickers and decals for extra authenticity. “Not unless it is a unit that is identified by us, insured, tagged,” said Salisbury. “The short answer would be no, unless it is donated,” to the OPP. The speed sign subcommittee was also wound up at the meeting. “I don’t see a purpose in continuing in this,” said Fennell. “The subcommittee’s role is, essentially, done.” l

Police Services Board urges lower speed limits entering Middleville desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Motorists heading south along Galbraith Road into Middleville may soon have to slow down to 40 km/h before entering the village, according to a new recommendation. The Lanark Highlands Township police services board has recommended that the township council consider lowering the speed limit, with an approach sign warning of the upcoming drop from 80 to 40. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even turn that corner at 50,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Derek Love, of the turn into the village, where it turns into the Sixth Con-

OPP office An office is now available for the OPP to move in whenever they want to establish a satellite office, away from their Highway 7 detachment in Perth. Staff Sgt. Derek Needham said that he was ready to move his computer in there as soon as possible, and the move has been approved by Highlands council. Speed signs The shared Lanark County speed sign will not likely be appearing on Highlands roads this summer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or anywhere in the

county for that matter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The speed sign is out of commission,â&#x20AC;? said Love. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fixed and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work any more.â&#x20AC;? The Highlands is looking at its own smaller trailer-mounted speed sign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us to purchase a sign on our own would cost $11,000 to $12,000,â&#x20AC;? said Love, though council was exploring the option of partnering with Beckwith Township to share it between them. The Highlandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chief administrative officer, Ross Trimble, has already contacted Beckwithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reeve, Richard Kidd, about the proposal.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tay Valley Township appears to be going with the pole-mounted (speed signs),â&#x20AC;? said Love. Needham pointed out that places like Havelock and Tweed, and even the Ivy Lea Bridge, have pole-mounted speed signs as traffic calming measures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find it interesting that Tay Valley is going with pole-mount-

ed,â&#x20AC;? said PSB member George Braithwaite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to hear what their reasoning is.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where we want them, there is no post,â&#x20AC;? said Love. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You would have to put them on the trees. We have so many places that we want to put them. It would be complaint driven.â&#x20AC;?

On the matter of traffic calming, Love reported that he has received complaints about speeding school busses and trucks, cutting through on their way to Almonte, along the Upper Perth Road and Ferguson Falls road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please have them call us directly,â&#x20AC;? Needham said of the complaints.

A long and winding road to Kingston for Ottawa cyclists By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It is a long road that knows no turning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; plenty of rolling hills on the way to Westport though. You may be forgiven for thinking that portions of Highway 43 and Richardson Side Road looked a bit like the Queensway on Friday rush-hour with dozens of groupings of cyclists from the Ottawa Bicycle Club bearing down, on their way to Last Duel Park for a pitstop before heading off to Kingston by way of Westport. They were taking part in the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour to Kingston June 8 and 9. Cyclist Thierry Daboval left the Woodroffe campus of Algonquin College at 7:37 a.m. and sidled onto the grass on the banks of the Tay at about 9:40 a.m. He had a good speed, but he made sure that everyone ate his dust â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as he ate the dust of everyone in front of him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You feel like you are eating a bit of dirt,â&#x20AC;? he joked, his toothy white smile breaking up his dirtflecked face, the result of two hours on drizzlesoaked back country roads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was more wet here than there (Ottawa). The bikes are a little muddy but that is the life of a bike rider.â&#x20AC;? Daboval was riding with five of his friends, some of whom work with him at the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are waiting for each other,â&#x20AC;? he said, before joking that if someone gets a flat tire, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you are on your own!â&#x20AC;? For some of the way, Daboval was in the front, a

harder position to be in since there is no slipstream from other riders in front of you to pull you along, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;you hide from the wind at the back,â&#x20AC;? of the pack. This was Dabovalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second Ottawa-to-Kingston cycle, which saw him and his friends stop in Kingston overnight, before returning home along the same route on Sunday morning, for a 360 km round-trip. Bananas and juice were in ample supply at the park, since bananas are â&#x20AC;&#x153;easy to digest,â&#x20AC;? explained Dabovalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend and riding partner, Anne RowanLegg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(They are) good for potassium, good for energy,â&#x20AC;? she added. While Daboval was eating dirt, Rowan-Legg noted that being behind him had its disadvantages too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit dirty when you are second in line,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(But) itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gorgeous ride. I love this Photo by DESMOND DEVOY (upcoming) stretch from Perth to Kingston.â&#x20AC;? Dave Jones, Eric Arseneault, Neil Goedhuis, Thierry Daboval, and Anne Rowan-Legg take From Ottawa to Perth is â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretty flat,â&#x20AC;? but she was psyching herself up for the upwards ascent to a break from their cycle to Kingston Saturday with a stop at Last Duel Park in Perth. They Westport after leaving Perth, and the rolling hills were on their way to Kingston for the two-day Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour. thereafter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoy getting out with friends, and it is a good way to see new places,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re keen to get to Kingston, keeping a decent pace. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not racing!â&#x20AC;?     There are different ways in which Rowan-Legg and her teammates help each other along. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have good conversations,â&#x20AC;? she said, and her fellow riders slow their roll when she begins to fall back.

EMC News – More than $12,000 was raised in Perth last week during Tim Hortons Camp Day. The two locations were neck and neck as the final numbers were tallied. The Gore Street location raised $6,356.29 and the Highway l7 location raised $6,650.57. Owners of both restaurants are Donna and Ron Lemke of Plevna. “W we owe it all to the staff they did an excellent job on organizing it,” said Donna Lemke. “They do bake sales and yard sales before the day to help raise the money. They put a lot of work into it and we are very proud of them.” From window washes, to chocolate kisses, the staff had some fun last Wednesday hosting a variety of events

where customers could participate in some fun and games for a great cause – sending local children to camp. Children are chosen for this experience through their schools, and kids’ organizations Four Lanark area would-be campers have already been selected for this year adventure. It costs about $2,000 per child to do so. Participants are between the ages of nine and 12, and will attend a 10-day summer camp session or sevenday winter camp session. “The money the stores raised is just awesome!” Lemke added. “We are so proud.” According to the Tim Hortons website, last year’s Camp Day raised a record $11 million, which helped to send more than 15,000 deserving kids from economically disadvantaged homes on a once-in a-lifetime camping adventure.

St. John Spartans excel in provincial sports action EMC Sports - Athletes at St. John Catholic High School had an impressive week on the field, track and pitch. Teagan Retty and Yannik Sigouin competed at the OFSAA track and field in Oshawa. Sigouin finished 10th overall in the Midget Boys 400m. Retty finished 18th overall and set a new school record in the Junior Boys 800 meter race. The senior girls soccer team travelled

to Windsor to compete in the OFSAA competition after earning the right by winning EOSSAA the week before. The girls finished with a 1-3 record. They lost their first three games by the scores of 2-0, 1-0,1-0, but won their last game 4-0. Their EOSSAA win was after battle on the field as St. John earned the berth to the provincials on penalty kicks following double-overtime.

EMC Events - Mel Young is having a dog wash. It’s not just any kind of dog wash… but an old-fashioned lakeside dogwash this Saturday in Rideau Ferry. “All the proceeds will go to local rescue organizations,” says Young, who has recently announced plans for her own animal rescue, Mel’s Farm – All Animal Rescue and Sanctuary. “The money will help purchase things that these other rescue operations need to function. It’s all about networking with other like-minded rescue operations.” The event will take place at the water’s edge at the Shipwreck Restaurant. Environmentally friendly soap will be used to wash dogs - $15 for a small pooch and $18 for large canines. “It’s certainly a dog-friendly event, as people can dock, dine and have a dog wash,” Young says. Special guest appearance will be a visitor from Beaks Wings Tails n Things. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Camp Merrywood opens hot pad June 23

EMC News – This summer, kids with physical disabilities at Easter Seals Camp Merrywood will have the opportunity to shoot hoops, slow dance and enjoy barbecue camp fare in Merrywood’s new outdoor facility donated by a group of Easter Seals parents, the Hot Pad. On Sunday, June 23, Camp Merrywood will celebrate its 65th anniversary by welcoming in the Hot Pad, along with an open house and the Merrywood/ Perth Power Play. A few years ago, Easter Seals mom Yvette Serpellini and several other Easter Seals parents raised $102,000 through individual fundraising efforts. After recognizing the need for a multipurpose outdoor space at Camp Merrywood, the group decided to donate their fund towards the design and build of the Hot Pad, named by Yvette’s daughter and Merrywood camper, Rebecca. “Every summer, Rebecca tries new activities, makes new friends and experiences a sense of accomplishment at Camp Merrywood – a unique experience for a child with physical disabilities,” says Serpellini. “The creation of the Hot Pad will enable kids to enjoy more activities at camp, contributing to the valuable experiences that Easter Seals camps provide.”

The multi-use space includes a covered, concrete area where children with physical disabilities will have the opportunity to play wheelchair basketball, sledge hockey and other recreational activities as well as enjoy barbecues and dances. The unveiling of the Hot Pad will take place at 1:30 p.m. through an official ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Serpellini family. The event will also recognize a generous in-kind gift from Yvette’s husband, Angelo Serpellini, and his company, DCI Durabuilt Construction Inc., a $24,000 gift from the Bernard & Norton Wolf Family Foundation for the purchase of 8 basketball wheelchairs and a $5,000 gift from the Perth and District Community Foundation for the purchase of two composting toilets at the site. “We are extremely grateful for the support and generosity of our donors, which has allowed us to build the Hot Pad at Camp Merrywood,” said Sandra Bellisario, vice president, development, Easter Seals Ontario. “The addition of this new multi-purpose space allows us to continue being industry leaders in providing specialized programs for children with physical disabilities through our two camps: Merrywood and Woodeden.”

The celebration will also feature live broadcasting from local radio station Jack FM, a closing ceremony campfire at 4:30 p.m. and a camp open house. Built in 1948, Camp Merrywood sits on 30 acres between Smiths Falls and Perth in eastern Ontario on a breathtaking peninsula stretching out into Rideau Lake. The camp offers programs such as sailing, canoeing, kayaking, pontoon boat rides, swimming, fishing, archery, pottery, overnight out trips, arts and crafts, sports and games, an environment program and white-water rafting. Easter Seals began in 1922 as a vision to create a better life for children and youth with physical disabilities. Today, Easter Seals continues to offer programs and services to help these children achieve a greater level of acceptance and independence, such as financial assistance for mobility and communication devices, fully accessible summer camp and funding for other summer recreational programs. Easter Seals also provides access to information and resources, as well as public education and awareness. For more information or to donate, visit www.easterseals.org or www. eastersealscamps.org.

Wheelers Pancake House and Sugar Camp CHEO fundraiser a smashing success EMC News – The evening of Saturday, June 8 saw a packed house at Wheelers Pancake House and Sugar Camp near McDonald’s Corners for the Wheelers Maple Kitchen Party. Coinciding with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Telethon weekend all funds raised during the evening went to benefit the CHEO Foundation. The Kitchen Party raised a total of $5,900 through ticket sales, a silent auction, and individual donations. The great services that are provided to our children and youth at CHEO was highlighted by former area resident Dennis Jackson who shared some of his family’s experiences at the hospital. Along with the funds raised at Wheelers, the 30th annual CHEO telethon raised a total of $6.8 million over the weekend. The Kitchen Party featured toe tapping family entertainment and plenty of food with Lanark County maple syrup. The Wheeler family, along with volunteers Leaha Adam and Kate Hall, served an all-youcan-eat maple feast including pancakes, French toast, maple sausages, and maple baked beans topped off with Angela Wheeler’s scrumptious homemade maple sugar pie and other maple themed desserts. Joel Smith and Josh Roy, Vernon and Judy Wheeler’s son-in-laws, provided the first set of music. This was the lads’ first public performance after years of playing at family birthdays. Referring to themselves as The Sonin-Laws, they played covers ranging from Paul Brandt to the ‘Green Acres’ theme song. The Roberts Family of Lanark finished off the evening with their own brand of kitchen music with moving ballads, Irish jigs, and hymns that brought the whole house to their feet. The audience was treated to an intimate glimpse into the family’s kitchen with their energetic and soulful songs featuring outstanding harmonies. Three of the ten members of the Roberts Family on stage were in-

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

I have encountered people who shamelessly allow their dogs to foul sidewalks right in front of me. Depending on circumstances I have given a few such offenders a blast. Usually it is best to keep your thoughts to yourself however, partly for personal security reasons but mainly because someone like that simply doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it. There are few cures available for stupidity! Then there are those who belong to what I call â&#x20AC;&#x153;the sneaky dog fouling set.â&#x20AC;? Those who appear set to do the right thing and clear up after their pet. Instead they wait until passersby are at a safe distance and then callously skulk off, leaving the excrement where it fell. Finally there are the aforementioned folks who simply open the door and let their dog or cat range through the neighbourhood to do what comes natural. We have some on our block actually. Disgraceful behaviour! In my capacity as chairman of the local Sister City Committee I regularly read the online edition of the Strathearn Herald newspaper, based in Perth, Scotland. It is one way to keep up with happenings in Comrie, the village which has been twinned with Carleton Place since 1992. The communities marked the 20th anniversary of their linkage last August. My wife and I have visited Comrie on five occasions, including last summer. Comrie red flag One of the benefits of twinning (or Sister Cities as we call

it here) is that we can learn lessons from one another. With reference to the issue I am writing about this week, Comrie residents have taken a step which I feel we can all learn and hopefully benefit from in our own communities. A recent story in the Herald says â&#x20AC;&#x153;more and more Comrie residentsâ&#x20AC;? are taking up what appears to me to be a very innovative â&#x20AC;&#x153;red flag initiative.â&#x20AC;? According to the newspaper the program is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bid to shame dog walkers who fail to pick up their animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mess.â&#x20AC;? The initiative began in an estate (subdivision) called Aros Field. Residents have quite literally been raising the red flag on those who persistently let dogs foul on grass verges outside their homes. The newspaper story says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (home owners) have been sticking red flags in the muck in an attempt to highlight the mess dogs are leaving behind and encouraging owners to clear up after them.â&#x20AC;? An Aros Field resident named Malcolm Allan started the campaign after hearing how red flags had â&#x20AC;&#x153;been successfully used as a deterrent elsewhere.â&#x20AC;? Now other Comrie folk have decided to give the idea a try. Members of the Comrie Community Orchard Group are taking flags with them when they go to Cultybraggan Camp to work on the orchard. Cultybraggan is a former World War II prisoner of war camp which has been purchased by the community and is being developed for multiple uses. Orchard group member Emma Margrett says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been thinking about doing something like this for a while up at Cultybraggan because you get a lot of dog mess and

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; One of my pet peeves is dog owners who allow their animals to foul public areas and private property while on their daily walks. I think it is absolutely shameful that some people blatantly ignore the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;stoop and scoopâ&#x20AC;? bylaws which exist in most communities. In the process a handful of uncaring individuals give all pet owners a bad name. It is mainly dog owners who are involved. But to be fair I have to point out that some cat owners are also guilty of turning their pets loose. Inevitably they find somewhere to do their business. On occasion the mess is found on lawns and in neighboursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flower borders. We have a regular problem involving wandering cats in our own subdivision so I know from whence I speak! My main beef continues to be dog owners who allow their pets to defecate on public sidewalks, in parks and on private property, often right in their own neighbourhoods. As regular readers know I am a daily walker. Admittedly watching passing dogs pee on trees and sign posts doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thrill me. But the revolting sight of animal excrement on downtown sidewalks is enough to turn your stomach at times. At night people unwittingly wander into it and â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well, you know the rest! Sadly this is a daily problem in Carleton Place where we live. Speaking to family, colleagues and acquaintances the same issue happens in their communities as well. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a universal issue in fact! In Carleton Place town staff does a commendable job of clearing up the mess. But it is impossible to stay ahead of the problem when it happens at any time of day or night.

Twin community raises red flag on dog fouling

Know the Signs of Lyme Disease `When hiking or walking in natural areas, wear light coloured clothing, longsleeved shirts, long pants, socks and shoes. Tuck your pants into your socks.

`Lyme disease is caused by the bite of a black legged tick that is infected with the bacteria. It needs to be attached for 24-36 hours before it is able to transfer the bacteria.

` Insect repellants with DEET also provide protection. Follow directions for use.

` Other symptoms of the disease may include fever, headache, fatigue or muscle and joint pain. These may disappear, but if left untreated, Lyme disease can progress and affect the nervous system, joints and the heart.

` Check yourself for ticks (include armpits, groin, scalp and have someone else check the back of your body). `Protect your pet; contact your vet.

Symptoms: ` A red rash may appear days to weeks after a bite. A bulls-eye rash may be present around the bite.

Consult your doctor if you have been bitten by a tick and are developing the symptoms of Lyme Disease.

it’s horrible when you are working away and then you put your hand or foot in it. “Plus there are children playing up there and you don’t want kids to step in it either.” Since an initial newspaper story in early April other residents are gradually taking up the red flag idea on their own streets across the historic village in Scotland’s picturesque Highlands. The campaign pleases Comrie Community Council member Sandra McRitchie. I know Sandra as a result of the twinning initiative and we communicate occasionally by email on various matters. I know she is dedicated to the general

well-being of her community. She told the Herald she is regularly contacted by people complaining about dog fouling. “Dog mess has been a problem in the village for a long time now and I am overjoyed to see people tackling it in this way. It’s a great idea and shows how the community here in Comrie can look after itself and is willing to step up to the plate and take action when needed,” McRitchie told the newspaper. “I hope the red flags help highlight the problem caused by a minority of dog walkers who don’t pick up after their dogs and encourage them to bag the mess, rather than leave it lying around.”

Sandra and the residents of Carleton Place’s twin community of Comrie have made my point for me with this very interesting initiative. I would encourage community groups and individuals in our district to consider the same kind of affirmative action. No, it won’t solve the problem. But it will at least highlight the situation and may even act as a deterrent for those who regularly allow their dogs to mess in exactly the same place every day. Call it one small step in the right direction. Thank you, Comrie! If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers.com.

Diesel particular particulates for some new diesel engines EMC Lifestyle - One of my favourite automotive writers, Murray Jackson (www.thecrosswordguy.com , passed along a gem regarding some new diesel engine emissions technology and I couldn’t resist sharing it with everyone here. Murray and I are both confessed fans of diesel engines for passenger cars and light trucks and more and more models from more and more manufacturers are coming to showrooms wearing a diesel badge. One of the reasons for the surge in diesels is that automakers have come up with some interesting tricks to improve emissions to meet ever more stringent standards. Some of these systems involve injecting a special fluid into the exhaust and some utilize a particulate filter built into the exhaust system and some use other methods. It’s these diesel particulate filters (DPF’s) and their method of operation that are taking some consumers by surprise and posing risks to engine longevity. In normal driving or even idling, particulate filters will eventually become clogged restricting exhaust flow and lowering available engine power and eventually causing a stall-out requiring replacement or cleaning of the DPF. These units can be very expensive and would clog far too often to make replacement a viable option. So the engineers came up with a way of using diesel fuel and the engine itself as a cleaner for these exhaust scrubbers. With some vehicles a separate fuel line injects raw diesel directly into the exhaust DPF where it’s ignited and burns off the accumulated soot. As you might suspect, during these controlled ‘cleanings’ the tailpipe emissions will be off the scale in terms of toxicity, but as emission rules look to reduce the overall carbon footprint of a vehicle, a temporary blast of raw exhaust every now and then is accepted by the regulators. Some engineers have forgone the expense of a special diesel fuel injection system for the exhaust and have opted for the running-rich method of DPF cleaning. On these vehicles, when sensors in the exhaust stream detect a major pressure differential caused by a DPF that needs cleaning, the engine controller simply injects more fuel into the engine than it can burn and the uncombusted fuel flows out of the engine through the exhaust system to the DPF where it is burned to remove the soot. Interestingly enough, on some heavy commercial vehicles that use this sys-

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

tem, the DPF’s can be removed and cleaned with specialized shop equipment. Engine companies like Cummins have these resources in their larger service centres and they treat the removed ash and soot as a hazardous waste. Several problems have arisen from this new technology. In order for the DPF cleaning to be completed the vehicle has to be operating at highway speeds and during the process the engine’s fuel economy will take a decided turn for the worse. On models that have instrument displays that indicate the progress of this action, drivers have reported it taking several hours of highway running before the ‘regeneration complete’ message appears. For vehicles that don’t necessarily see regular highway driving, the cleaning process can dump unburned diesel fuel into the engine’s oil pan, thus diluting the oil and possibly leading to major internal damage. Some automakers such as Mazda that have been selling their CX5’s in the UK and Australia equipped with DPFs, instruct their customers to check engine oil on a very regular basis (every 1,000 km or monthly) to look for too much oil on the dipstick as well as not enough. They’ve even added an ‘over-full’ mark to let drivers know when the oil must be changed due to diesel fuel dilution. Murray and I will both keep an eye out as smaller passenger cars with DPFs will soon start crossing our borders. If anyone currently driving a truck equipped with a DPF has any comment or opinion, please send it along. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@ perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@ hotmail.com listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O.

EMC lifestyle - Walking into the first of Bob Mitchell’s several sprawling greenhouses, the sweet, earthy smell of ripening tomatoes takes over your senses. For a brief moment, it’s just you and the fruit. You’re filled with a sense of hominess, of nostalgia for your grandmother, or the proud memory of the first vegetable you ever nurtured. When you come back to reality, you start to look around and you can hardly believe your eyes. Row upon row of leafy tomato plants climb toward the soft, filtered light coming in from above. The greenhouse seems to stretch on forever. Little technology gets in the way of nature’s beauty; the stems grow from plasticsheathed blocks of crushed coconut in raised troughs and are clipped to small rods above. Small pipes wind along the floor, masked by green tangles of sagging vines. Every so often a bumblebee lazes by, off to pollinate another plant or return to one of the hives placed throughout the greenhouse. Mitchell, the owner and founder of SunTech Greenhouses, on Doyle Road south of Manotick, somehow fits

THE EMC - 50 - Thursday, June 13, 2013

into the greenhouse ecosystem, despite a brusque manner and a penchant for loud exclamations. The lifelong farmer moved to a dairy and cash crop farm south of Kenmore when he was six, which he farmed with his family until 1998. And then he entered a greenhouse for the first time in his life. “The smell, that was what hooked me,” he said. From that visit in September 1998, it took 11 months for Mitchell to buy the Doyle Road property, set up a greenhouse that covers a hectare, and plant 22,000 beefsteak tomato plants. “Just a starter kit,” Mitchell laughed. Today, the farm has 1.6 hectares of greenhouse facilities and produces 11 different commercial products. That includes several tomato varieties as well as eggplants, cucumbers, peppers and green beans. NATURE’S WAY

While SunTech certainly doesn’t profess to be organic or pesticide free, it makes use of what nature has to offer. A common greenhouse pest is the white fly, a tiny white bug that can multiply into the billions. As they drink the juices from the plants, they

excrete everywhere – and that can prevent the plants from getting the sunlight they need. But instead of spraying plants with chemicals, Mitchell brings in 40,000 encarsia formosa, a tiny parasitic wasp that lays its eggs in white fly eggs – essentially stopping the reproduction cycle. “You don’t pay them by the hour and they don’t miss,” Mitchell said. Bumblebees are another important part of the greenhouse ecosystem. Brought in from Windsor, Ont., Mitchell’s bees are relied upon to pollinate the tomatoes. The number of bees loose in the greenhouse directly correlates to the number of open flowers, Mitchell said. There are usually two or three bee stings a year, he said, but as the chief bee handler he has managed to escape a sting for nearly 14 years. Of course, the whole point of a greenhouse is to get around Mother Nature’s whims, and SunTech employs a complex computer system to monitor the indoor and outdoor temperatures and adjust the roof vents accordingly. The average daily temperature inside is about 19 degrees, Mitchell said, and they can harvest about 10 months of the year.

Florida, Costa Rica and Nicaragua are destinations for zip line enthusiasts. But you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to travel that far for exhilarating zip line experiences, which are growing in popularity in North America. Ownership of Logos Land Resort, just outside Cobden, is hoping a signiďŹ cant investment in its new three-leg, zip line course will bring smiles and goose bumps to many more of its customers in coming years. Challenges Unlimited Inc. is completing construction and installation of a parallel zip line course over Astrolabe Lake this month. The course warms up nicely, with the ďŹ rst zip carrying visitors 201 metres across a small bay. Zip No. 2 runs 343 metres across the middle of the lake, before the ďŹ nal 401-metre leg returns buckled-in riders back above the water. The total ride is 3,100 feet, or almost one kilometre, at speeds of up to 35 km/h, usually six metres above the water, but sometimes closer to 25. Logos Land owner Jerrold Paxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business partner, Kevin Cahill, died last December, but not the dream to continue to improve on what Logos Land offers its customers. Facilities already in place include the water park, with its slide, splash pad, grill house, mini-golf, animal petting farm, beach and giant lake trampolines. There are also timeshare villas, motel suites, 90 recreational vehicle (RV) park and camp sites, rental RVs, 100 wilderness camp sites for trailers or tenters, and the neighbouring Oaks of Cobden golf course.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have four goals in mind,â&#x20AC;? says Logos Land director of marketing and sales Fred Glover. The ďŹ rst goal is to offer something, like the zip line course, that caters more to older youngsters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made investments in recent years for the little kids, like the petting farm and the splash pad,â&#x20AC;? says Glover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But for older kids, as families grow up, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them to hit the boredom curve.â&#x20AC;? The same philosophy applies to younger adults. The connection of the zip line for these potential customers also happens to coincide with the ideal weight for zip line passengers. The weight allowance runs from 75 to about 275 pounds. The second marketing goal, says Glover, is to expand Logos Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season, which for the longest time has been concentrated in July and August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The zip line can be used year-round, but more practically it will certainly run in the summer, as well as in the spring and fall.â&#x20AC;? Logos Land has already experienced positives vibes about the new course. For example, response at the recent Ottawa RV Show, which attracts more than 20,000 visitors, was extremely positive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our big posters stopped them,â&#x20AC;? says Glover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It surprised us, especially the positive verbal feedback from 40-, 50- and 60-year-olds. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see for sure this summer.â&#x20AC;? Glover acknowledges thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another zip line, at Chutes Coulonge, while pointing out that Logos Land Resort aspires to become a growing part of multi-activity tourist packages in the area, thus Logos Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third

marketing goal. For example, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason tourists canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t zip over Astrolabe Lake, play golf rounds at a variety of courses in the area, see the Bonnechere Caves, zip some more in Chutes Coulonge and try some whitewater rafting or kayaking. Unlike Logos Land, Chutes Coulonge offers two zip lines of 100 and 260 metres over whitewater rapids and a shorter nine-zip series. As Glover says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every zip line you see is different.â&#x20AC;? The areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest zip line, says Glover, will be simple, safe, exhilarating and an atSTEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND tractive addition to what Lo- The project manager for the Logos Land zip line is Dave Humphrys of Challenges Unlimgos Land already offers. ited.

The zip line will increase local employment. About a dozen staff will be hired to run the facility. Zip-liners will wear a helmet and gloves while holding on to a harness that is hooked Sensational to a pulley attached to the zip line cable. Reaching the platforms is easy, via stairwells.

For more details, check out www.logosland.com or call 613-646-9765. The zip line is being constructed by Challenges Unlimited Inc.

For better handling and mileage, swap winter tires for summer ones, or all-season types.

THE EMC - 55 - Thursday, June 13, 2013

It’s hard to find that perfect listening place EMC Lifestyle – As stated in my last article, I love to listen to music, preferably live but also recorded as a second choice. And I do mean listen. I don’t often talk to others when a live musician is playing especially. Nor do I pay attention to screens (be it TV or personal devices) when someone is playing their heart and soul out to me. As most know who read my columns, I regularly attend O’Reilly’s Ale House in Perth on Tuesday evenings as Brock Zeman and Blair Michael Hogan strut their stuff and I love taking it all in. Out of respect to the performer, if I want to chat I go to the back of the bar. You get an outstanding songwriter/musician in Brock and the sweetest licks in the world from Blair. But this time of year, I make my yearly apologies to them for not attending until later because it’s hockey playoff time and I also love watching hockey. With several games on every night, I go elsewhere to watch hockey so as not to give musicians only partial attention due to some screen vying for my attention with yet another dramatic goal. So, when the game is done, I’m off to hopefully catch a bit of my live music fix, a necessity for me. There are many listening spaces that I enjoy and they’re not all public spaces. Through a mutual friend, I met a local gentleman who shares my enjoyment of music and I’ve been visiting weekly for many years. He’d always have his stereo on in the background as we’d chat about whatever. He has a cathedral ceiling where we sit and he had speakers above his kitchen cabinets as well as another set at the other end of the room on the floor. We noticed the separation on some recordings that seemed to fill the space better than others and both had remarked on it. A few weeks ago though, I noticed a far more full sound even at a low volume in our usual space and commented. My friend was pleased to see I’d noticed they’d gotten a new receiver, a subwoofer for bass and mounted new speakers on the far wall, replacing the floor models. The difference was remarkable and I must say it has become one of my favourite places to hear recorded music. The distinctive breadth of the sound from its bottom end through the middle and up to the swirling highs seem to catch my aged ears just right. You know you’re with true friends when you can just sit there and listen…no chatter necessary. I’ve written before of another of my favourite listening spaces and this past weekend was able to revisit our camp and enjoy my outdoor speakers, with their 40-foot separation while enjoying the first campfires of the season. I keep my music volume there low enough to allow Mother Nature’s natural “soundtrack” to blend with the recordings. Tree frogs, crickets, loons, owls all join in to create a beautiful, unique blend with whatever I have on. It’s interesting also to compare older recordings’ primitive separations of the right and left channels to the more refined blends newer technology avails. I spend many an hour listening fireside during the warmer months and through the cold winters dream of getting back there. There aren’t many “listening rooms” out there. By that I mean

somewhere where bar chatter doesn’t take away from being able to hear and appreciate the lyrics for singer/ songwriter presentations, which tend to be my usual genre. The Cameron House on Queen West in Toronto is one of those unique establishments that lend themselves to listening as does Hugh’s Room, also in Toronto. The Branch Restaurant and Texas Grill in Kemptville prides itself in being a good place to listen (and the food is wonderfully creative and local). I also enjoy Fiddlehead’s atrium in Perth for Sunday Brunch Jazz hosted by Clay Young. I’m always amazed this room isn’t packed to overflowing. I’ve got to admit though, I’ve become spoiled while hosting our house concerts for the past 10 years. Until one experiences it, having someone play live in your living room for friends and family who are quiet, hanging on every word the performer offers, one might not understand why this is still my favourite. That intimacy is infectious and also noticeable on how most musicians rise to the occasion, offering that much more in stories and song, knowing they have an attentive, appreciative audience. I am gratified hearing someone rave about their first experience. We’ve recently moved our house concerts to a larger venue to avail more attending and my body is grateful for not having to move furniture any longer but I do miss the more intimate space of our living room. Being able to allow more people to experience musicians they would rarely be able to see locally and hear the appreciative comments following is a trade off I’m willing to accept. Time to sign off as I have to head out and will enjoy again another favourite listening room, my car. I can listen at any volume I want, utilize the knobs to bring up my preferred listening sound equalization for any music I choose and drive for miles. Now go enjoy your day, hopefully listening somewhere to some of your favourites. Upcoming events July 19, 20, 21: Perth’s Stewart Park Festival. More on this later but go to www.stewartparkfestival.com for more details. Support live music everywhere.

Fit Minds Cognitive Health Products Inc. Fit Minds Cognitive Health Products Inc. is a Canadian company providing professional and family caregivers with tools and resources to maintain and improve the brain health of individuals suffering from Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and other forms of dementia. The Fit Mindsâ&#x201E;˘ products and programs focus on cognitive stimulation and interaction as a preferred method to promote brain health. Over thirty years of brain research has shown us that brains can continue to learn, grow and change throughout the

life span of the individual. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) ACTIVE study done with almost 3000 individuals over the age of 65 showed that brain training has a positive impact on information processing, memory and the ability to focus. There have been many other studies showing that cognitive exercise can enhance brain fitness in both the healthy brain and the brain under attack by diseases like Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and other forms of dementia. In particular, Dr. Aimee Specter of the University College of London in the United King-

dom has shown that cognitive exercise can be as effective as dementia drugs in the treatment of individuals suffering from Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease. Applying this neuroscience research to the problem of cognitive decline, Fit Minds Inc. has created the unique, patent-pending InterAct â&#x201E;˘ Program. The InterActâ&#x201E;˘ Program contains a comprehensive brain workout organized around five areas of cognition: Language and Music, Visual/Spatial Orientation, Memory, Critical Thinking and Computation. Each session

plan contains exercises and activities in each of the five areas of cognition to provide enjoyable interaction that engages and challenges each individual. The InterActâ&#x201E;˘ Program can be used in a one-on-one setting or with a small group. Most sessions last between 45 minutes to an hour and can be tailored to many different levels of ability. The InterActâ&#x201E;˘ Program is also great as a volunteer or family resource when visiting with their loved one. Fit Minds Inc. has also developed the Family Caregiver program which

trains family members to use the InterActâ&#x201E;˘ Program to support and maintain the brain health of their loved ones. As well, we have focused the Family Caregiver program on supporting and maintaining the relationship between the care-provider and the care-receiver. We believe that while dementia changes family relationships, it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end them. For more information about any of our products and programs please visit www.myfitminds.com or send an email to info@fitminds.ca
