Council puts brakes on traffic, parking committee



News - The town’s traffic and parking committee has been put up on blocks. The traffic and parking committee will be disbanded following a three-to-two vote at the town council meeting on Tuesday, June 18. Coun. Jim Graff, however, had recommended holding off on any decision until the fall, since there “was that expertise” available on parking and traffic matters that could be called on with an as-needed basis, “rather than terminate it.” However, Coun. Judy Brown reported that the committee’s last four meetings had been cancelled. “It does delay things,” Brown said of the committee. “I have sat on this committee since I was first on council. It can be three months until there is a resolution,” with matters arising from the committee usually having to be referred back to the committee-of-the-whole (COW), and then back to the

EMC News - The Perth Kilt Run took place Saturday, June 22 with more than 2,000 runners taking part in the fun. The event set a new record for the number of people running in kilts consecutively. Visitors and participants alike enjoyed a variety of events that were held throughout the day, including a haggis toss, caber throw, genealogy searching, a shortbread bake-off and a lads and lassies race, to name a few.

committee. “(Now) COW will handle parking issues,” said Brown. However, Graff disagreed. “It puts all of the onus on the director of protective services,” said Graff. “We would have that much more support if we had traffic and parking. You give more people the opportunity to participate in the workings of our town.” Brown said she appreciated Graff’s wholesome view of opening up town hall committees to the public, but noted that bringing a horse to water was not always sufficient to make it drink. “It is a great practice in theory,” said Brown. “But the number of citizens you get to participate on these committees, it is not as great as you would wish it was.” Graff’s motion to defer the disbandment to the September COW meeting was defeated. “We were elected to study issues and act,” said Brown.

Highway 43 Memorial ride kicks off Saturday in Perth By LAURIE WEIR

EMC News – Homeless veterans will never be forgotten if the Canadian Army Veterans (CAV) have anything to do with it. For the second year, the 1 CAV Sicily Motorcycle Unit of Morrisburg will be in Perth to kick off their ride – Operation Leave: Leave the Streets Behind – that hits legion branches Highway 43 on their way back home to Branch 48 in Morrisburg. Bill “Justus” Aitken is the vice president of this branch of riders. As a war vet, this ride touches a little piece of him – as it does with all members of the unit. “I can relate to the anxiety issues and depression… I was 24 years in the military and I get how (homelessness) happens… how it can come to that,” he said. “It’s not an easy thing. Individuals have to take control and have that need to change their lives so they can feel better.” The CAV’s goal is to help other vets. “This event is not to take



away from our fallen soldiers from Afghanistan.” Aitken said this ride’s donations will go directly towards helping families and it will go to the Homeless Veterans Assistance Fund. Last year, they raised close to $5,000. “There are so many issues for vets once they come home,” he said. “So many people don’t get that.” What the public may not know, he added, is that over 2,400 solders were wounded or dismembered who came back from Afghanistan. “What happens to them?” “Initially, they get treated for injuries, given information on what’s happening and where to go for help,” Aitken said. But that’s not enough. “Vets helping vets. That’s the real thing happening here” with this ride, he added. “Those we have asked for sponsorship or to get involved have been great. They love helping and donating and that the money is going to war vets and their families.”

Ride throughout region On Saturday, riders will gather at the Canadian Tire store in Perth, on Highway 7 for their ride through Perth to Highway 43. The route will take participants through Burritts Rapids, Kemptville, and then to Chesterville where they will break for lunch at the legion. Following that, the group will head to Alexandria, hit Lancaster on Highway 34, circle back to Morrisburg via Highway 2 at the Long Sault Parkway. “In Morrisburg, we will be having a barbecue dinner at the Legion (Branch 48) and we should be there about 4 p.m.,” Aitken said. On display at the Morrisburg Legion will be a replica of the Portraits of Honour mural. A copy of artist Dave Sopha’s piece was reproduced on canvas and will be available for viewing at the Morrisburg Legion throughout the day. The original 10-foot by 50-foot hand-painted mural depicting soldiers who died in Afghanistan took 6,500 hours to paint.

Five historic homes on display in Merrickville House and Garden Tour July 13 By ASHLEY KULP

The eighth annual Merrickville House and Garden Tour is set to unfold Saturday, July 13. This year, five heritage homes and their gardens are on the schedule, including historic Manor House, above. Located at 905 St. Lawrence St., this home was owned by the Mirick family, the founders of Merrickville. Another home to be featured on the tour is the Molloy home, a two-storey Victorian abode at 105 Water St. Photos by ASHLEY KULP

EMC Events – Take a peek inside some of Merrickville’s most historic homes and lush gardens Saturday, July 13 when the eighth annual Merrickville House and Garden Tour returns. The tour, once again being presented by Holy Trinity Anglican Church, runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and this year visitors will be invited into five of the village’s lovely homes. “The lineup this year is unbelievable,� remarked tour organizer Linda Nash. “I cannot believe how lucky I was this year.� According to Nash, all five of the homes on the tour are heritage and accompanying each are “magnificent gardens.� “The whole tour is like a step back in time,� she noted. Due to the fact that each home also has a garden to explore, Nash indicated she didn’t seek out separate gardens. “It’s going to take people all day to see these houses. They’re so interesting,� she commented. Included in that list is Merrickville’s historic Manor House at 905 St. Lawrence St. Owned by David Luxton and Laura Brown, this regal stone home’s claim to fame is that it was owned by the Mirick family, founders of Merrickville, in 1844 and is known as the Harry McLean House by locals. “Current owners David, is the chairman of the Tulip Festival in Ottawa and Laura is a sculptor and artist,� Nash explained. The three-storey structure was completely renovated in 2012. “They left no stone unturned for redoing this house,� she said. “It’s been totally revamped from the first to the third floor.� An example of Georgian architecture, one of the home’s most unique features is winding staircase that leads to a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ style gallery at the top. It is decorated exclusively in fine art and antiques. “I’m so excited (to have this on the tour),� Nash stated. “You could be there all day just looking around that one house.� On the day of the tour, copies of Teresa Charland’s biography on McLean, ‘Building an Empire. “Big Pants� Harry F. McLean and his sons of Martha,’ will be available for purchase. Morning Mist Manor (745 Heri-

view of the river,� Nash said. “It’s another great example of late Georgian buildings in Ontario.� The tour will also take visitors to 105 Lewis St., the Jane Tynsdale House, which was constructed in 1861. It is a two-storey limestone house but was built to look like a storey and a half. “The reason for that is that taxes were higher on a two-storey back then,� Nash stated. “People hesitated at wanting to pay higher taxes, so they made homes like that.� The Tynsdale home has also been lovingly restored and boasts original floors. The windows and roof trim reflect the time period in which it was built. Mirick Home, owned by Joelle Schmid and Nick Previsich is an example of Edwardian architecture, with red and yellow brick detailing. “It’s been renovated with a combination of modern and classic interior design with modern and contemporary pieces mixed with fabulous antiques,� Nash commented. The wraparound veranda and expansive garden are other features. “My jaw dropped when I walked into this house. I love it,� she said. The final home included in the tour is the Molloy Home (105 Water St.), owned by Shirley and Timothy Molloy. This two-storey Victorian home was constructed in 1890 and bears wide porches and gingerbread trim indicative of the time period. It was featured on the tour four years ago and is back by popular demand. “There are only a few houses in Ontario like this and it is split in the middle so you can enter the home from both sides of the veranda,� Nash remarked. “It has two stairways, one at the front and one at the back.� Packed with early Canadian and Victorian antiques, Nash said the property has won several awards for its gardens as well.

UCDSB celebrates National Aboriginal Day all year

TOUR Popular event Almost immediately following the tour each year, Nash begins planning for the next. She said she tends to look for older, heritage homes “because that’s what people want to tour.” “Every year I like to put one modern house in, but as it turns out this year, they are all heritage,” Nash stated. “...The nice thing about this year’s tour is you can walk the entire tour if you want,” she added. Over the past eight years, it’s become a popular tradition throughout Merrickville, with people coming from across Lanark, Leeds and Grenville as well as the Ottawa region. “People start calling in January to find out when tickets are going on sale, so it’s definitely becoming one of the highlights of the summer for Merrickville,” Nash said. “It brings people, com-

Help eliminate violence against women and children in Canada at July 5 fundraiser EMC News – On June 21, Tears4Justice began their very powerful journey across Canada from the east coast to the west coast. The journey is in honour of all missing and murdered Aboriginal women and children, along the Highway of Tears, and all women and children across Canada. The group’s goal is to raise awareness on the many issues regarding the root causes and the lack of resources available to protect Aboriginal women and children. According to Canadian government statistics Indigenous women are five to seven times more likely than other women to die as the result of violence. The

Native Women’s Association of Canada has documented more than 580 cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada, most within the last three decades. Because of gaps in police and government reporting, the actual numbers may be much higher. Aboriginal women make up four percent of the female population. Tears4Justice is a non-profit group of grassroots volunteers, family members of missing or murdered loved ones and volunteer social activists who fight for justice on their behalf. On July 5, please join members of our community in welcoming these dedicated people

and supporting this important journey at Zion-Memorial United Church (37 Franklin St.) in Carleton Place at 6:30 p.m. Your support is greatly needed as Tears4Justice is totally reliant on volunteers and donations. For more information, please contact Erin Lee-Todd, Lanark County Interval House at 613878-5700. Sponsors for this event are: Amnesty International Canada, KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives, Lanark County Interval House, Lanark County Neighbours for Truth and Reconciliation and the Social Concerns Committee of Carleton Place.

Development of regional economic corporation to be studied by United Counties on the possible opportunities and benefits of regional economic development. The chamber has researched out to other economic development corporations in Ontario and supports the creation of one in Leeds and Grenville. Counties and OPSEU Local 494 sign agreement Counties council has signed an agreement with its social services, child care and social housing workers represented by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU). The two-year agreement for the OPSEU Local 494 employees provides a 1.75 per cent increase in each 2013 and 2014 along with minor modifications in the benefit plan. Stewardship council seeking support Leeds-Grenville Stewardship Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Karen Brown outlined ongoing projects and initiatives to counties council at its regular meeting June 20. The local stewardship council is a community-based, volunteer group focusing on environmental enhancement projects. In

SAFETY TIPS Oil Lamps: Oil lamps or lanterns provide excellent light but can be a fire hazard if placed too close to combustibles. Keep oil lamps away from combustibles and out of the wind. Make sure they are kept in a secure place where they cannot be knocked over. Refill the lamps outdoors or away from combustibles and other people.

Leeds Grenville, some of its initiatives include the Leeds Community Pasture Project, where solar-powered water sources have been created for livestock, upgrading of Kemptville Creek, tree planting, and sustainable forestry. Working with schoolchildren to increase environmental awareness and education is another key focus. A partnership with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) was recently formed. Stewardship councils were supported by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) until April 2013. The local council is now seeking other sources of funding, said Brown. She asked counties council to consider supporting the stewardship council through funding or office space. Warden Ron Holman explained the budget for 2013 is set and Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request will be considered in 2014. Campbell puts name forward to FCM Counties council is supporting Mel

Campbell, Reeve of Augusta Township, in becoming a Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) standing committee member in 2013 and 2014. Campbell and counties CAO Andy Brown said it would be advantageous to the United Counties to have a voice at the FCM, a federation which focuses on federal matters such as economic development, taxation and funding. Weed control options studied Following a recommendation from the public works committee earlier this month, counties council has asked staff to proceed with a control option study for noxious and nuisance weeds. The report will help determine effective control measures of weed infestations and a strategy to keep noxious weeds from spreading. Results from test plots, including one along County Road 28, will be included in the study. Effective weed control data from other jurisdictions will also be included in the report.

Chief administrative officer (CAO) Andy Brown said there will be an investigation into any benefits, disadvantages, and costs in forming a countieswide corporation. The study, expected by November, will also ensure no duplication of services or elimination of local municipal economic development programs.

Stop dumping trash on our rural roads DEAR EDITOR: I have noticed recently that our beautiful rural roads have become dumping grounds for almost any type of trash. I have seen mattresses, appliances, old tires, tons of discarded fast food wrappers, plastic bottles, cans, coffee cups and pretty much anything you can imagine just left or tossed on the side of the road. It seems that people just pull over, have lunch and then just drive away leaving all of their garbage behind. The litterbugs responsible for tossing trash know who you are and maybe it is time to dispose of these items at a proper designated area such as

the dump or a garbage can. I find this very disheartening and sad to see we are so fortunate to live in such a lovely scenic area that is fast becoming an eyesore littered with garbage. Please make an effort to take your garbage with you, dispose of it properly and leave our beautiful rural roads the way I enjoy seeing them, litter free. Thank you. Fran Bryerton Almonte

COMMENTARY Be alert on roads, waterways this Canada Day EMC Editorial – It’s been heralded as the official start to summer, but don’t cloud your summer before it begins with poor driving habits. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) recently announced they will be cracking down on aggressive driving this Canada Day long weekend on roads, trails and waterways across the province. So if you are someone who is impatient or angry while driving or who tends to display colourful vocabulary while behind the wheel, listen up. Aggressive driving doesn’t just mean speeding, which could be considered one of the most common faults among drivers, but also following vehicles too closely, making improper lane changes, weaving in and out of lanes and having a general disregard for the rules of the road and waterways, will be targeted. Don’t think if you aren’t an aggressive driver that the OPP won’t be on the lookout for other poor driving habits. They will also be watching for impaired and distracted driving seatbelts, as well as ensuring you have personal flotation devices on board when boating. According to the OPP, the public awareness campaigns they have been undertaking are making a difference. At this time last year, there were 173 fatalities on roads, waterways and trails, while that number is down to 110 this year. Perhaps that shows that people are taking the law and their own lives seriously. We all have some bad driving habits we’d like to get rid of and being forced to make a change might not be a bad thing.

Father was so overworked and overtired this time of year EMC Lifestyle – Would he topple over and fall out of the rocker? Would he hit the floor with a thud, and maybe bang his head on the oven door? I was sitting at the kitchen table. I was alone. My sister Audrey said she had better things to do than waste time looking through Eaton’s catalogue. The three brothers were doing what they did every night in the summer... they were outside throwing balls, using their sling shots, or shooting off their B.B. guns. Mother was in the garden. It was just me and Father in the kitchen. The sun was still streaking through the west window, and the kitchen had been redded up, and bedtime was a couple hours away. I sat very quietly watching Father. He looked smaller, I thought. Maybe it was the way he was sleeping in the rocker. He didn’t hear his pipe fall to the floor, and the Ottawa Farm Journal lay across his knees unopened. His chin was on his chest, and I could see him breathing as his plaid shirt gently rose and fell. It had been a long day for Father. Chores were done before sun-up. The plow and other farm pieces of machinery had been moved on the stone boat

to the back fields across the Bonnechere and over the West Hill weeks before. By the time Father was finished with the morning chores, the milking done, and eaten his breakfast, he would be ready to take the team across the shallowest part of the Bonnechere and head over to the back fields. He would have picked up the basket of lunch Mother had made the night before, and we wouldn’t see him again until it was time to come back home for the evening chores. And so I sat and watched Father, and wondered if he would have enough strength left to even get out of his clothes and fall into bed. Dust from the fields still clung to his face. He had taken off his work boots and his heavy wool socks were covered in soil and bits and pieces of grass. I knew if he rolled down the legs of his overalls, there would be more of the same trapped in the folds. I could see the edge of his combination underwear showing under his plaid shirt, and I wondered if I dared go and straighten up his head, so that he would be more comfortable. But of course, that would waken him from his much Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount 613-283-3182, ext. 104

needed sleep. I wondered why he didn’t go to bed right after his supper, as I sat and watched his worn-out body curled uncomfortably in the old rocker. But then, he wouldn’t be able to check on the barns, which he never failed to do before falling into bed. No, this was Father’s routine, and nothing was going to change it this time of year. There were fields to plow and cultivate, and grain to plant, and scant time to do it in, as Father tried to outsmart the weather. And so, from dawn to dusk, Father like every other farmer around us, was tied to the habits of the season. Father wasn’t a big man. The three brothers were all taller by several inches. My brother Emerson towered over him. But Father was wiry, and as straight News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Stacey Roy, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Kelly Kent DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-284-0124 ,ext. 27 CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Judy Michaelis Email: Lee Ann Gilligan Email: Jennifer Coughlin Email:

as a die. As as I sat and watched him, I was scarcely breathing and making not a sound, so that I wouldn’t disturb his rest, I thought he looked so much older than he did before summer planting began. He was always so much more tired after supper this time of year. The heat of the day was heavy on him, and even though it was summer, he still wore his plaid shirts with the long sleeves. But he did give up his felt hat with the ear lugs, changing to his old battered straw hat, with the wide black headband, marred with the sweat off his brow. I sat quietly, watching Father breathe, not a muscle stirring in either of us. I was overcome with a deep sadness, as I looked at him in the rocking chair, his feet in their usual place on the turneddown oven door. And I wondered, can someone die from overwork? What if one day he didn’t come home from the back fields? What would happen to us? The sun had gone down behind the grape arbour, and the kitchen was darkening, but yet there was daylight, and I was still alone at the old pine table, Eaton’s catalogue unopened in front of me, and with my eyes never leaving Father.

He would stay there until everyone came in from outside, banging doors, and scraping their feet on the mat, and tossing their bats and balls into the box beside the stove. Mother would stop a moment in front of Father and then she would do what she did every night this time of year. She would tap Father on the shoulder...she may have to do it several times to bring him out of his deep sleep. He would slowly raise his head, and look around the kitchen as if he were lost. I would move myself away from the table and go over to the rocker and pick his pipe up off the floor, and put the Ottawa Farm Journal on the bake table. Father would shuffle over to the bedroom door off the kitchen, and he would turn to Everett and tell him to be sure to check the barns before he went to bed. Soon I would hear the creaking of the bed springs, and if I listened closely from my spot at the kitchen table, I would hear a deep sigh, and then the soft snores as Father settled down his tired body for the night. It was just another day, no different than the one before, and no different than the one coming after. • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

Local health unit begins weekly Upper Canada District School Board beach water sampling for summer approves budget for 2013-14 EMC News – The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit has once again begun weekly water sampling of the area’s public bathing beaches. The beaches will be monitored weekly throughout the summer season until Aug. 30. This year the following public swimming areas will be monitored: • In Lanark County: Almonte Beach, Dalhousie Lake, Centennial Beach, Riverside Beach, Lanark Beach, Pakenham Beach, Rideau Ferry Yacht Club, Robertson Lake Beach, Smiths Falls Jr and Sr. • In Leeds and Grenville: Sand Bay Charleston Lake County Park, St. Lawrence Park, Lyn Valley Conservation Area, South Crosby Beach, Portland Campbell Street Beach, Foley Mountain Beach, Joel Stone Beach, Kendrick’s Park, Lower Beverley Township Park, Bellamy Park, Kelly’s Beach, Merrickville, Westport Sand Lake

lected from each beach. The results will then be analyzed for the presence of E. coli (Escherichia coli) bacteria. If the results exceed the bathing water standard of 100 E. coli, the beach will be posted with an “WARNING Unsafe for Bathing” sign indicating that the level of bacteria in the water may pose a risk to your health if you choose to swim. This information will appear on our website and in radio reports. This year you can also follow the beach posting results by using Facebook and Twitter. Updates will be posted Friday mornings by 9 a.m. Research has shown that when people are swimming at beaches where the water has a high E. coli level, there is a direct relationship with an increase in ear, eye, nose and throat infections in swimmers. The bathing beach will remain posted until test results indicate that the water quality meets the bathing beach water standard. To Testing process help you better understand Every week a total of five why beaches are posted, the water samples will be col- health unit has developed

an information card that is available at any health unit office or township office that has a bathing beach. It is also available on our website at Beaches_Info_Card.pdf. Bacterial water quality is one parameter used to determine water quality. Other variables, which are assessed and evaluated, are the presence of a blue green algae bloom, accidental spills that may pollute the water and any safety issue that could impact on the health of the bathers. At any time if these variables are believed to have an impact on the beach’s safety, the beach will be posted as “Unsafe for Bathing”. Posting information is available on the health unit website (http://www. beach_results.htm), on Facebook at www.facebook. com/LGLHealthUnit or on Twitter at LGLbeaches or by calling the Health Action Line at 1-800-660-5853. Submitted by the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit.

EMC News – The following are highlights from the Upper Canada District School Board’s (UCDSB) regular meeting which took place June 19 at the board office in Brockville. The UCDSB approved a budget of $345,119,287 in operating expenses and capital of $28,729,025 plus all additional amounts subsequently allocated by the ministry. Budget highlights include: • The Information Technology Services budget for 2013-14 is $5.63 million. This represents a decline of approximately $0.05 million or 0.9 per cent year over year. • The director’s office budget for 2013-14 is $2,899,336. • The proposed budget for teacher support services is $1,270,126. This allocation goes toward the salaries of staff who deliver professional learning across the district and who administrate district and ministry educational programs. • The proposed budget for programs is $12,916,058. • The proposed budget for special education 2013-14 is $45,956,395. • The trustee’s budget for 2013-14 is $424,517. Link Crew The board also received a re-

port on the impact of Link Crew on grade 9 students, grade 12 Link leaders, teacher coordinators and the culture of schools. Link Crew is an orientation and year-long program that is designed to ease the transition of grade 9 students from elementary to high school. It does this by: • Providing a welcoming and fund Orientation Day • Establishing relationships between grade 9 students and their grade 12 Link leaders • Providing a grade 12 Peer Mentoring Structure that supports academic and social success • Providing an environment of caring through Link leader connections and support • Fostering a sense of belonging • Encouraging grade 9 participation in school activities Among the qualitative findings, grade 9 students had this to say: • “Link Crew helped me not be so scared.” • “I knew that I could turn to my Link leader to get help with any problem that I might face.” • “My peer mentor helped me understand my schedule.”

While grade 12 students said: • “I developed a sense of responsibility.” • “I became a role model for grade 9 students.” • “I took the course because I wanted to make a difference.” Nine recommendations will be implemented by administration, including: • Best practices from across the board need to be shared and implemented. • Principals need to take a leadership role in communicating the importance of collective ownership of grade 9 students. • Principals should develop a timetable model that allows time for meaningful connections between grade 9 students. Use of personal electronic devices in classrooms and school The board approved the following policy: In recognition of their differing interests, abilities, personalities and learning preferences, the Upper Canada District School Board encourages its students to select and use the supplies, equipment, devices and other resources they need to learn effectively at school and at home.

Heat waves endanger millions of Ontarians living with lung disease EMC News – For the 2.4 million (one in five) Ontarians living with a serious lung disease such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or lung cancer, this week’s extreme heat isn’t just uncomfortable – it can be dangerous. The risk of experiencing serious breathing difficulties increases dramatically during extreme weather, including the severe heat forecast for this week. The effects of smog, heat and humidity can sometimes be felt well before a smog alert is issued. The lungs become more sensitive, causing flare-ups that often mean a visit to the emergency department or even a stay in hospital. Even people who do not have lung disease may experience difficulty breathing in extreme heat conditions or when smog levels are high. During very hot and humid weather, when outdoor air quality is poor, the Ontario Lung Association recommends that you: • Stay indoors in an air-conditioned place with good indoor air quality; • Keep your blinds and curtains closed to keep out the sun’s heat. At night, if you don’t have air-conditioning and outdoor air pollution is low, open your windows to let the cool air in; • Listen to air quality and humidity Submitted photo (Humidex) advisories; • Keep outdoor activity to a minimum and consider exercising indoors EMC News – The Beach House in Perth held an open cancer research. Pictured are Nancy James, Alissa in a cool, clean environment. Schedule outdoor activity at a time when heat house last month where $700 was raised for breast Ballantyne, Tracey Stead and Chrystine Moreau.

More musical tales from the belly of the big city So our wander around downtown Toronto brought us some memorable musical moments, some new friends and venues to check out again. Upcoming events Sam Ferrara pulled it off beautifully. Very tasty. As we enjoyed their set, an older woman entered, quickly quipped with the band between songs and headed further into the bar to where we were seated and asked if she could join us. At the break, as we chatted, her eyes expanded to saucers as I told her we were from Perth. Right here in the heart of multicultural Toronto, this lass tells us she grew up in Westport and still has a cabin near there. She had been up to Festival of the Maples in Perth this year and we compared notes on who we knew in common. Janet Goodfellow apparently left Westport at 18 years of age, now lives in the Kensington area, and the Rattlesnake Choir recently surprised her by playing in her home for her 70th birthday. She asked me to put in a good word (and a CD) to Seamus Cowan at the Cove Inn for Rattlesnake Choir and I’ll be doing just that. Small world… We moved on, walking up Augusta St. and turning right on College where we entered The Free Times Cafe to catch someone we’d seen many times at the Ontario Council of Folk Festival Conferences we attend. We were there to see the Russell Leon Band and were tickled upon arrival to see a musician friend we hadn’t seen in years was opening. Roman Riccio is a singer/songwriter of true musical lineage. His father Pat Riccio Jr. was musical director and keyboard player for Anne Murray and his grandfather was a wonderful saxophone player who had his own Pat Riccio Orchestra in Toronto when I was growing up. It was nice to see Roman plying his trade again, this time backed vocally by Caitlin September. It was quite enjoyable as was Russell Leon. I always feel at home in this venue though I don’t get there often. It’s always special. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention having run into a friend, one of Toronto’s longstanding promoter/publicists, not at one but three of the music events we attended. Richard Flohil was publicist for Downchild Blues Band for 39 years and was the creative genius who brought BB King to Canada for the first time as well as many other greats. I seem to run into him whenever I’m in Toronto. Case in point: When I would arrive on rare Monday nights to the Orbit Room upstairs on College in Toronto to hear Sisters Euclid, one of “guitar-for-hire” Kevin Breit’s bands who would start at 10:30 p.m., most times, there would be Richard. He often comes up to Stewart Park Festival “because he loves the intimacy of it.” He’s currently writing a book of his memoirs which I can’t wait to read. Not bad for someone being 79 years young.

Sunday, June 29: At 7:30 p.m., St. Paul’s United Church in Perth, presents an amazing 40-voice Toronto women’s choir, Cantores Celestes, who are kicking off their 25th anniversary celebrations by performing at St. Paul’s

and whose own choir director Brad Mills raves about this choir. July 19, 20, 21: The 23rd annual Stewart Park Festival in Perth. Support live music everywhere.



on the road, night after night. A bonus came when the Wailers introduced musical friends from the East Coast – Bathurst, New Brunswick – Barry Cooke on keys and vocals and Marc Doucet on guitar who added nicely to the mix and had both sat in on previous recordings. Maple Blues Award winner – Shirley Jackson joined for a few tunes on sax and vocals which was pretty sweet, too. The highlight for me though was this: Just as they were setting up, an old acquaintance strolled on in. Paul DeLong has been an indemand drummer for years and played Stewart Park Festival backing Carlos Del Junco and others, has previously played with Kim Mitchell, Doug Riley, Dominic Troiano, and Tom Scott, to name a few. In recent years he’s played musical theatre, doing the Lion King, Hairspray, Rent and Hair in the US and Canada. He shared his excitement at being there because he now teaches at Humber College, where all the Wailers met in the music program. He was so thrilled to be there to watch Lindsay and how far the band has come. I’ve seen them for the past three years and I’ve got to agree, I just can’t believe how great a sound and show these players have put together. Whew! They’re coming to Stewart Park Festival this year so you’ve got a great opportunity to catch one of Canada’s up and coming great blues bands. It was especially a treat to see Paul sit in during some of the evening when Lindsay got up to play some smoking electric guitar (hey, it was her birthday and she wanted to show us her new toy)! Jesse Whiteley sat in on keys too, which was the icing on the cake for that evening. After surviving two days of intense meetings it was great to be able to wander late Saturday afternoon from our hotel, relaxing through back streets over to a hole in the wall pub I’ve heard about for years but never had an opportunity to visit. We strolled west from the hotel and ended up in Kensington Market, one of the true epicentres of multiculturalism in all its varied colours, tastes, smells and soundscapes. Graffiti’s is on Baldwin, near Augusta, and isn’t very big but has some wonderful talent flowing through it. We lucked in on hearing Rattlesnake Choir. Actually they’re normally a five-piece but we were entertained heartily by John Borra – singer/songwriter/ guitarist who’s past has seen him doing time in the punk scene as a kid, later playing with Ron Sexsmith and Jim Cuddy’s band before heading to more independent roots interests. Fiddle-master Miranda Mulholland (Bowfire, Belle Starr, among others) also provides vocals to Borra’s lead. Now how many times do you walk into a bar and witness a percussion player pull out and effectively utilize cheese graters, a set of three slinkys or a singing saw (the edge of a bent handsaw being bowed)? Well, percussionist

EMC Lifestyle – I don’t know about you but often its unique musical moments that I remember most and on a recent trip to Toronto, I happened onto several. A relatively short streetcar ride took us from our hotel to the unique Cameron House, (northwest corner of Queen St. W and Cameron St.) where Corin Raymond & The Sundowners (Treasa Levasseur – accordion, piano, vocals; David Baxter – guitar, mandolin, vocals; Brian Kobayakawa – upright bass) were playing for their weekly 6 to 8 p.m. gig. Corin established some notoriety this past year by totally funding his latest double CD – Paper Nickels (complete with 144-page booklet outlining the caper) with Canadian Tire (CT) money. He found a recording studio willing to take CT money at par and, through an incredible response of CTC money donated from fans across the country, all via social media, including TV and radio interviews across North America, he was able to record some of his favourite songs written by like-minded musicians. Those troubadours who write, play and promote their own music wherever they can, without the luxury of record company support or radio play. Corin is a songwriter of major proportions. His last CD in 2009, entitled There Will Always Be A Small Time, was my favourite that year and I continually hear other troubadours performing his songs in their set. We were lucky to catch them as they announced this was their last Thursday gig at the Cameron for a while as they were on the road most of the summer. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the wonderful guitar work by David Baxter and all the tasty additions by Treasa and Brian. It’s always a memorable experience. While at the Cameron, I ran into Tom Parker who I’ve seen in various groups over the years including The Backstabbers, Lickin’ Good Fried and most recently Tom Parker & the American Pour. Both our roots are based in Owen Sound in that my parents used to dance to his grandparents band there in their courtship. It was in this same locale a few years ago I actually shared this historical family anecdote with my daughter and was able to introduce her to Tom. Tom introduced me to Devin Cuddy, Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo’s son, who I’ve heard play piano several times sitting in with other groups at the Cameron. Might I suggest you check this young man out for his own abilities because I know you’ll be as impressed as I’ve been. A quick trip got us back to Monarch’s Pub, in the Delta Chelsea (soon to become the Eaton Chelsea) where the 24th St Wailers were just back from an western Tour and ready to unwind and celebrate drummer Lindsay Beaver’s birthday. I especially love it when I’m able to catch a group just getting back from a tour because their show is usually especially tight and filled with all the great little nuances they’ve developed while

Virtually everyone has memories of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II EMC Lifestyle – It seems every year is an anniversary of some significance for Queen Elizabeth II. Hardly surprising given the fact she has been on the throne for 61 years and five months. She is Head of State of the United Kingdom and 15 other Commonwealth realms including Canada. No matter where you live I believe it is safe to say Queen Elizabeth is the most familiar face on the planet. Her lengthy reign is now closing in on the all-time record for a British monarch set by her great, great grandmother Queen Victoria who died in 1901 at age 81. Victoria reigned for 63 years and seven months. That is the longest tenure for any female monarch in history. Queen Elizabeth seems ageless. Her husband and consort Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, just turned 92. He continues to suffer through significant health problems. Although her schedule has been somewhat reduced in recent times the Queen continues to maintain a busy public life that belies her 87 years. Three weeks ago, while the Duke of Edinburgh was undergoing exploratory surgery in a London clinic, his wife visited the new headquarters of the venerable British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in Central London. I am an unashamed Monarchist. Not surprising perhaps considering that I was born the same year a young Princess Elizabeth succeeded her father King George VI who succumbed to lung cancer at the young age of 56. Like most spouses, my wife Kathleen and I don’t see eye-to-eye on every subject. She is more of a Republican than I am. In other words she is less supportive

of the institution of the monarchy. Although I believe her opinion has changed somewhat based on our many visits to the UK and the obvious importance this tradition holds for the island nation. The economic impact of the monarchy is hugely significant. Last year major celebrations were held to mark Queen Elizabeth’s ascension to the throne 60 years earlier. The exact date was Feb. 6, 1952 the day of her father’s untimely passing. The observances included a 1,000boat pageant on the River Thames in Central London. The next day there was a massively attended Diamond Jubilee concert outside Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s London residence. Hundreds of thousands packed ‘The Mall’, the main boulevard leading to the palace, wearing royal masks, waving Union flags and cheering wildly. A star-studded cast of musicians including Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John (both knighted by the Queen at different times) and American singer Stevie Wonder performed and a spectacular fireworks display wrapped up the spectacular. If you like long-running anniversaries, Queen Elizabeth’s is the prototype! Coronation The year 2013 marks the 60th anniversary of her coronation. The event in 1953 was the biggest public spectacle in the British Isles since the end of the Second World War just eight years earlier. The people of Great Britain were still living on rations at the time and went to considerable trouble to hoard enough precious foodstuffs to provide for coronation cakes and celebratory meals.


The actual ceremony was held on June 2, 1953 at Westminster Abbey. In front of more than 8,000 guests, including prime ministers and heads of state from around the Commonwealth, Queen Elizabeth II took the coronation oath and was formally crowned. Shouts of “God Save the Queen” echoed through the streets of historic London amid the firing of salutes in honour of the big occasion. Early this month, on June 3 to be exact, a service was held at the historic abbey to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the coronation. The service included much of the music used during the service six decades earlier. I followed news coverage of the anniversary service. The 2,000 who attended the Westminster Abbey event included former choirboys and maids of honour from the original ceremony. A total of 25 members of the royal family were on hand. Obviously it is a very different royal family today. One image that particularly struck me was a newspaper photograph of the Queen beaming at her daughter-in-law Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the wife of her eldest child and heir apparent Prince Charles. Few people will be unaware of Camilla’s role as Charles’ second wife and

the scandal that accompanied his divorce from the late, much-loved Princess Diana, the mother of his two sons. To say the least Her Majesty, the Duke of Edinburgh and most British citizens were “not amused” by the events which led up to Charles eventual marriage to Camilla. That despite the fact the ceremony was a quiet affair, held long after Princess Diana’s death in the tragic Paris automobile crash in August 1997. My, how times have changed! Despite the trials and tribulations of the royal family I think it can be fairly said that the Queen Elizabeth remains one of the most popular figures in British history. A woman who is respected, even revered, in countries around the world. Many of us, especially people like me who grew up and became much older during her long and successful reign, have their own memories of the Queen. I am an Ottawa native and therefore there were many chances to see her in person. Ottawa, the nation’s capital, has hosted so many visits by Her Majesty over the course of 60 years. Canada has been a favourite destination for the Queen. In fact she has visited Canada 24 times, the most official visits she has made to any nation in the world as queen. Her first full visit was in October 1957 and her most recent was in late June and early July 2010. For the record, if you count brief visits including refueling stops, she has been to Canada an astounding 31 times. That total includes a tour of seven provinces in 1951 on behalf of her ailing father while she was still Princess Elizabeth. I have seen her in person twice in Ottawa. I vividly remember standing in

front of Rideau Hall in October 1964 with my parents and two of my three siblings (my youngest sister wasn’t born yet) and seeing the smiling Queen as her limousine drove slowly past. We were standing near the main gate of the Governor General’s official residence. Her 1964 tour was held despite threats made against her by the Quebec-based separatist organization which went by the acronym FLQ. Undeterred, the Queen came to Canada anyone albeit amid tight security. In the 1970s (October 1977 I believe) Kathy and I saw the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh while we were attending an Ottawa Rough Riders (Canadian Football League) game at Lansdowne Park. We had a very good look at her, through binoculars, as she dutifully sat through the first half of the Rough Riders’ game at Lansdowne Park during yet another visit to Ottawa. Something tells me she isn’t a big CFL fan? No matter what you think of the Queen and the monarchy it is impossible to ignore the fact that she is an iconic figure whose reign covered nearly half the 20th Century and has extended well into the 21st, the so-called “New Millennium.” Given her apparent good health, there is a strong likelihood she will eclipse Queen Victoria’s reign. I’m sure many of you have personal memories of Queen Elizabeth II? I would be pleased if you would share them with me by email. Your memories might even make another column!

Go back stage, break the fourth wall with theatre exhibit By DESMOND DEVOY

EMC Entertainment – This is one last chance for Matthew Behrens’ parents to take their final bow. After the death of his father Bernard Behrens last September, he found a treasure trove of theatre memorabilia from the days when his father and mother, the late Deborah Cass, donned the cap and bells and trod beneath the proscenium arch as actors during what he described as a golden age in Canadian theatre. In fact, Behrens, now the associate producer for the Classic Theatre Festival, and curator for the exhibit “Now and Then: Found Treasures of Canadian Theatre History” first appeared on stage with his parents – albeit in utero, while his mother was pregnant with him at the Neptune Theatre. “This exhibit came about because I was born as a theatre brat. I was always uprooted from theatre to theatre” Behrens said of his youth. In fact, the show his parents were in was The Fantasticks, the soundtrack of which would later be the only music able to put the infant Matthew to sleep. The two masks that represent the stage – tragedy and comedy – were apparent throughout Behrens’ families’ relationship with the theatre. His mother “was born on the sidewalk in Transcona, Manitoba,” while his dad was from the “mean streets of London, England.” Though they were an ocean apart, his mother and father grew up and saw acting, both on screen and on stage, as a way of not only escaping reality, but

also as a way out of their hard existence. While his mother was taking part in Yiddish community theatre in Windsor, Ont., his father was fascinated by the heroes and villains of the screen – going so far as to watch the 1939 version of Robin Hood 16 times, and vowed to make it to Hollywood. It was all part of “making a life that was better than the one you had,” he said. Most amazing of all, father Behrens saw the woman who would become his wife on the screen one day and was heard to exclaim, “I am going to marry that woman.” When they finally did meet, he was blown away by the actress in person, who had first stolen his heart on the screen. In an odd twist, when he proposed, he handed her a roll of toilet paper and said, “Will you marry me?” “There are a lot of strange theatre traditions,” said Behrens, scratching his head. “I’ve never been able to decipher that one.” After the Second World War, his parents, along with the likes of Lorne Green, Gordon Pinsent, and Christopher Plummer, struck out to create a uniquely Canadian theatre, which has found its most well-known manifestation at the Stratford Festival in southern Ontario, something he says is “celebrated in this exhibition… if it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t be here. (They) insisted that Canada have a culture of its own… we want a distinct voice,” said Behrens of his parents company, the Canadian Players. “We don’t want to be overrun by British and American (plays).” For Behrens, the exhibit may

be an intensely personal experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a tribute to my family as well as that (theatre) generation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Theatre) is not something to do when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bored. Theatre is something that you go to because it enriches your life, it lets you see your world in a different way.â&#x20AC;? And did his father ever realize his dream of making it to Hollywood? Indeed he did, appearing on such T.V. hits at Columbo, Baretta, and The Bionic Woman. Though he lived at Lanark Lodge during his final days, father Behrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heart was still on the stage. He suffered a stroke in August of last year, and as the paramedics arrived, some of the staff were heard to tell them that â&#x20AC;&#x153;you might recognize him. He used to be an actor.â&#x20AC;? At this, father Behrens spoke the last full sentence he would ever speak: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still am an actor.â&#x20AC;? Just as the character Nick Piazza pointed out, in the musical Fame, that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the actor must ask the magical if. What if?â&#x20AC;? Behrens said that the same is true, if the question is phrased somewhat dif-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why is it this way? Why can it not be a better way?â&#x20AC;? Behrens said, quoting his mother, who died in 2004. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She felt that art was a way to ask that question.â&#x20AC;? Remembering the hard times in which his parents grew, and how liberating the theatre turned out to be for them, Behrens said he did not want people with modest means not to be able to enjoy theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that anyone should be denied an opportunity to see live theatre,â&#x20AC;? said Behrens of the Save A Seat program, which will be renamed in his parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; honour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will help break that isolation of poverty.â&#x20AC;? Behrensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wife, Laurel Smith, was also glad to see her family so well represented on the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our family too,â&#x20AC;? said Smith. Her own family had theatrical leanings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; her father was a minister, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;he was theatrical in his own way, in the pulpit, on Sunday morning.â&#x20AC;?

Arena renovations get green light go-ahead from council Search for student delegates for town committee to wait until fall By DESMOND DEVOY

EMC News - Just like many games in the Chicago-Boston playoff series, approval for Blue Wings head coach Michael McLean’s planned renovations for the Perth arena came right down to the wire, but the puck bounced in the right direction for him last week. Perth town council gave McLean the green light to start renovations to the Perth arena to construct a new dressing room for his hockey team, just in time for the start of the 2013-14 season. McLean had informed council at the

last committee-of-the-whole session on June 4 that he needed a decision from them by June 19 or the renovations would not go ahead as he would not bring a team into a construction zone. Coun. Jim Boldt supported McLean’s bid, which will also see new seating, the installation of high definition video screens, new public address and light show equipment, and other improvements. Boldt said it should be encouraged when “anyone of Mr. McLean’s stature comes forward and wants to improve a public facility,” said Boldt, adding that

it was an added benefit to the taxpayer as well. “It’s pretty difficult to turn down something like that,” said Boldt. “This will be the start of some great things in town.” McLean, and his father, Frank, a former Blue Wings player himself, were in the audience to see the vote pass, as was outgoing Blue Wings board president Christine Lyon.

council will wait until this fall to start placing student delegates on the parks and recreation committee. Following recommendations from young people at a teen conference at Perth and District Collegiate Institute back in May, Mayor John Fenik ruled out having a student delegate sitting on town council, but did begin to pursue having two youth delegates, from both PDCI and St. John Catholic High School, appointed by the principals of Student delegates both respective schools, sit on the parks With students already sitting exams, and recreation committee. and many eyeing the door, Perth town The issue did come before town

council on Tuesday, June 18, but it was decided to defer the issue to the Sept. 10 committee-of-the-whole meeting, to allow staff time to prepare a report on the matter. “The fact that school is ending, we wouldn’t be able to appoint students anyway,” said Coun. Beth Peterkin. “We will have students on the panel.” Deputy Mayor John Gemmell, however, wondered why students should not be sought for the role now. “I don’t think that the principals would be averse to doing it now,” said Gemmell.

TR Leger school to set up at old Perth police headquarters By DESMOND DEVOY


EMC News – The former Perth Police Service building will see new life this year as the new home of a T.R. Leger School campus. The facility at 1881 Rogers Rd., occupied by the police until this past April, will welcome the adult, alternative, and continuing education school starting this summer. “We were looking at a (business) incubator process for this area,” said Coun. Beth Peterkin at the Perth town council meeting on Tuesday, June 18, before adding that town staffers were directed to pursue this line instead once the school, backed by the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) signaled its interest. “I think it is great that we have some interest,” said Coun. Jim Graff. “I was very concerned that it would sit idle for a while… I am very happy that we do have a prospective tenant, believe me.” The town has also stated that it will take the $185,000 it expects to collect from rent and use it to fund the surrounding business park, for the next five years, “and thereby support future job and assessment growth,” said Deputy Mayor John Gemmell. “Once we get the building fully rented, down the road…this money will be reinvested,” promised chief ad-

The school will use about 50 to 65 per cent of the space available, with the two other suites possibly reconfigured to accommodate two or three companies. DeRosenroll added that he wanted the facility to be “self-sustaining,” so as to help fund sewer, water, and other services in the area. “There is no impact to tax payers,” said Coun. Judy Brown. “It fulfills our commitment to economic growth.” The business incubator study that town staff had worked on will now be sent to Lanark County as a regional initiative. “We ourselves will not use the results of the study, it would be a good idea to

refer it over to them and see if it fits with their needs,” said Peterkin. The deal is due to be finalized for Monday, July 1. “I think we are heading in the right direction in so far as our business park,” said Coun. Jim Graff. “It’s hard to get people interested in property when it is covered in grass and trees.” Coun. Jim Boldt asked if the town was “getting fair market value for this?” “We did not want to be in a position to rent out our property at below market value,” said deRosenroll, and be seen to be giving someone an unfair advantage. “This represents fair market value.” Director of protective services, Jim Connell, said that the proposed gross lease for the school would be about $52,750 a year. Connell agreed with deRosenroll. “I think it is fair value. I think that it is a good tenant. You can’t go wrong with the school board and their ability to pay.” Connell added that there would be less wear-and-tear on the building because school would only be in session up to 10 hours a day, on average, unlike the seven-day-a-week, 24 hours a day, police station. “I think that over the life of the lease, we will fare rather well,” said Connell, who added that the school’s rent “essentially pays for the operation of the building. Any other tenants will be extra


income.” T.R. Leger could be joined in the building sooner rather than later, according to Peterkin. “There were other people who talked to me about potentially renting the building,” she said. “Did we test the market

for other tenants?” “We have additional space to rent,” replied Connell. Even with only one tenant, it is still more tenant than the building had a few months ago. “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush,” said Boldt.

We’re having a heat wave EMC Editorial – Some hate the humidity, some revel in it, but whichever side you’re on, summer is officially here and along with it, those muggy temperatures. Lanark County is in the midst of its first heat alert of the summer season, which began a few short days ago on June 21. Due to temperatures expected to reach the high thirties (which could feel like over 40 degrees with the Humidex), the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit issued a heat alert on Monday, June 24. Summer is a favourite season of many, but the heat and humidity that often goes along with it is nothing to take lightly. According to the health unit, this dangerous mix can cause dehydration, heat stroke, heat exhaustion and even in some cases, death. While everyone is at risk, it is particularly the elderly, those with chronic illnesses or on specific medications, infants and preschool children, as well as those who work outdoors or participate in physical activity for long periods of time, that are particularly susceptible. During these heat waves, it’s important to be better safe than sorry and exercise common sense. You wouldn’t want to spend hours out in the scorching heat, so don’t leave your children or pets parking in cars or sleeping outside in the direct sunlight. There have been too many cases of infants or dogs being left in vehicles, just so their parent or owner could zip into the mall to get that item they desperately needed. In some instances, the errand isn’t such a quick one and can have a fatal outcome. It’s selfish and thoughtless and people should know better. In temperatures such as the ones we’re facing this week, it doesn’t take long for one lapse in judgment to have tragic effects.

Although the health unit recommends staying indoors with the drapes shut and keeping lights turned down low, if you have no choice but to be outside, make sure regular breaks are taken in the shade and drink plenty of water and fruit juices throughout the day. Don’t drink liquids too fast, sip them often throughout the day. Try to avoid alcoholic beverages, cola and coffee and stick to consuming foods with high water content to avoid dehydration. This includes fruit such as oranges, grapes and watermelon. Remember to wear loose fitting and light clothing and always have a hat on hand to block out the sun’s harmful rays. Don’t forget that SPF either. If you have access to air conditioning, use it. If it is unavailable, maintaining low energy activities, visiting public facilities with air conditioning (malls and libraries), relaxing at a pool, or taking periodic cool baths and using wet towels to beat the heat. Fans should be used in the evening to draw in cool air, but the health unit advises against using them as primary cooling devices. A voiding using ovens and other appliances, such as dryers, can also help keep your home cooler. If you do find yourself experiencing symptoms like nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, difficulty breathing, severe headaches or confusion, fever or convulsion, get to a hospital as soon as possible. This is just the first of likely many heat waves we’ll have before summer ends on Sept. 21, so crank up that air conditioning, draw the blinds and keep cool. Think about shovelling six feet of snow in the dead of winter. By taking the proper precautions out there, we can all enjoy a safe and happy summer.

And the band played on EMC Lifestyle - I’m going to do it again. I am going to talk about the weather. I’m sorry, it’s just that weather turned out to be a rather major preoccupation on the weekend. I’m a big fan of the “rock hanging from a string in the yard” method of weather forecasting. You, know: if the rock is wet it’s raining, if it’s white it’s snowing, if it’s swinging it’s windy... and so on. Dress in layers and carry an umbrella and sunscreen everywhere you go. Welcome to Canada. Unfortunately, though, looking out the window at a rock isn’t a terribly reliable method for longerrange forecasting. On Saturday, I was left in charge of making the call about whether an outdoor evening concert at Murphys Point would proceed. The weather had been unsettled all day. The sound guy was on standby. The band needed to know by 5 p.m. Suddenly I had to be a meteorologist. Me, the one who looks out the window for up-to-the-minute guidance, had to decide by 5 p.m. whether an outdoor concert scheduled for 8 p.m. would actually be hindered by predicted thunderstorms. Dudes. The weather changes every 10 minutes here. I went online and consulted with Environment Canada. Various radar perspectives were conflicting. One version made it look almost certain we would be pummelled, while another predicted clearer skies. The Weather Network added to the ominous version. Add to the mix the fact there can be a great variance between the conditions in Perth and those 20 minutes away on the Rideau system and I was a puddle of uncertainty. Googling “Omigod should I cancel the concert tonight” was not helpful. I considered “tweeting” CBC weather guy Ian Black (he’s on the Twitter, you know) to ask what

he would do, but I figure he gets asked stuff like that all the time and it must be terribly annoying, so I refrained. Instead I did what I do best: I harassed all my friends. (I like to call it “consulting to make a collegial decision.”) STEPHANIE GRAY I called the sound guy three times and texted him, too. Adam proved to be optimistic and good to go. Rain was no problem, he said, although thunder and lightning wouldn’t be so good. I checked with the ever-patient Alida at the park about 47 times. OK – maybe only three or four times. I asked the other volunteers and Groom-boy for their opinions. One volunteer was driving towards us from southern Ontario through torrential rain. (Eeep.) It wasn’t looking super good. The sky was darkening. The radar wasn’t telling me anything definitive and Ian Black hadn’t channelled my inner thoughts to send a spontaneous tweet that said, “For anyone planning an outdoor event tonight, here’s what I would do....” So I called the band. They, too, had been checking the radar and were just as uncertain. We were about one dark cloud away from calling the whole thing off, but the band decided to play on! We were off! Adam (and dad Steve) and I got started with preparations. The sky was clear and it seemed like a really nice evening was in store. Then the band called en route. “We’re in Merrickville. It’s pouring! Should we continue?” I gave the sky the stink eye. It was brightening. There was a lovely breeze. Loons were calling. “It’s quite lovely here,” I said. And so the Celtic Rathskallions set forth once more. They arrived, they put on an awesome show, the audience cheered and not a drop of rain fell. Hurray! (And phew!) (This little weather drama pales in comparison to the terrible flooding out west. My thoughts are with family and friends dealing with this crisis.)

THE EMC - P8 - Thursday, June 27, 2013

Recognition for a forgotten hero EMC Lifestyle - At this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canadian International Military Tattoo in Hamilton, Ont., they commemorated notable battles of the War of 1812. One particular vignette referenced the crucial Battle of Stoney Creek (June 6, 1813) in which a desperate night-time bayonet charge turned the tide of battle in favour of the outnumbered British forces. Leading that victorious heroic charge, and capturing two American generals himself, was Sgt. Alexander Fraser. Outside of the opposing commanders, Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name was the only one mentioned by the announcer at the Tattoo, a high honour indeed! After the War, Fraser was granted lands in and near the Perth Military Settlement (Bathurst, Drummond, Beckwith townships), building one of the most impressive stone homes (named â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Annsfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) of that period or any since. Present-day owner of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Annsfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is Irene Spence who, in collaboration with Ron Shaw, has published a book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forgotten Heroâ&#x20AC;? on Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Spence has spoken on her research to many historical and genealogical societies including the recent Perth Regional Heritage Fair, and opened â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Annsfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to the public for the first time during

the 2012 University Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club heritage home tour. Will Alexander Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name finally get the official recognition, both on the national stage and in local circles, it so richly deserves? James Elliott, a prominent historian and author of a recently released book on the Battle of Stoney Creek, holds the opinion that Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name should be spoken with reverence in the same breath as Brock, Tecumseh and Secord as icons of the war of 1812! Would you readers agree? Wallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hidden history My last column shared the story about Allida Rubino discovering a time capsule inside her Drummond Street front porch. Since that time, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard from a couple of readers who shared their own story, including Ann Knapp. Knapp owns a 100-year-old home in Perth and she says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s knows there are hidden treasures inside the house. The homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous owners

discovered love letters hidden inside walls when renovating the bathroom. Knapp says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue her hunt to uncover more of these amazing discoveries inside her home. Robbie the Robinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hart-felt Experience It seems as though every year I have a Hart story and it usually has to do with hockey. My annual Hart story, however, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do with life on the ice. This spring, the Hart Matriarch, Monica, discovered a baby robin that had fallen out of its nest outside the Hart home on Otty Lake. As avid animal lovers, Monica and her daughter, Bronwyn, took the robin inside, named him Robbie and nursed him back to health. Robbieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outlook was looking up, so they released him back outdoors. But then Robbie got into more trouble after getting caught in a nearby fence. Robbie apparently canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t catch a break. But once again, the Harts helped him

Walks with Tux Last week was both a good and bad week for our four-year-old dog, Tux. We brought him to the vet clinic and he stepped on the scale. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a pretty number. Tux has been on the gaining end ever since we welcomed our son, Alex, into our lives six months ago. When I saw the number on the scale I was frustrated, not with the dog, but with ourselves. Too often the dog gets pushed aside when family life becomes busy and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not fair. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been so patient with us, especially since he was our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;first babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The good news? Tux is back on our priority list and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting his two walks a day; the second walk being his longer one. Since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve started on our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tux Boot Campâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; regime, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a happier pup and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re confident weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see quick results. Good boy, Tux. Have a Private I story idea for me? What are your thoughts about Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status? Does your dog also need to shed some pounds? Contact me at

Jewelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new Perth location opens on Wilson Street By DESMOND DEVOY

EMC Business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Just as â&#x20AC;&#x153;littlesâ&#x20AC;? need big brothers and sisters, so too did the Jewels Gently Used Clothing Store in Smiths Falls need a â&#x20AC;&#x153;littleâ&#x20AC;? to make it a chain. So, the Jewels location in Perth was born, and its new location at 48 Wilson St. was celebrated with a grand opening on Thursday, June 13. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very, very, very grateful for everything that they bring in,â&#x20AC;? said store manager Michelle Baitley of the generosity of Perth residents, with donations to help raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County (BBBS). â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is quality stuff. We are just blessed,

blessed, blessed.â&#x20AC;? The Perth location had been located at 37B Foster St., but after three years they moved on May 21, because of better access, more room, better visibility, as well as good foot traffic on the way in to the Metro supermarket. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wives will come in and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My husband is in shopping at Metro so I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d come in,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Baitley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are always in need of volunteers,â&#x20AC;? said BBBS executive director Jennifer Miller. With the sister store having been founded in Smiths Falls about a decade ago, Miller noted that the store is handy not only in raising money for her organization, but also in â&#x20AC;&#x153;very helpful in recruiting. We have great traffic here.â&#x20AC;? R0012172184_0620

Women paint past adversity at health centre art show By DESMOND DEVOY

EMC Entertainment – Chemotherapy, medication, doctor’s visits – and paint brushes? The last item there may seem like the most unlikely part of recovering from breast cancer, but while a paint brush’s benefits to the body are benign, the effect that they can have on a cancer survivor’s soul can be incalculable. “This group has been an important part of my recovery from breast cancer over the last 18 months,” said Cathie Green, standing beside her collage at the “Expressions for Women” art show on Thursday, June 20 at the North Lanark Community Health Centre in Lanark Highlands Township. She said that for many women in crisis – health wise and otherwise – “an important component for many women is to have a place to connect with other people going through a major life transition. Having a place to come that provides materials and tools so that I could try new artistic media is amazing.” While the women gathered on this afternoon have varying degrees of artistic ability, “we learn together,” Green said. “It has opened a whole new door for us in terms of self-expression. It is a way to get out of your head.” While her artwork does not dwell on her cancer, or her recovery, for Green, not hiding her cancer away was important. “I was very public through my treatment,” said Green. “That has been an important part of my healing. It has helped to demystify breast cancer.” Speaking out was also a way of honouring the many friends she

has already lost to cancer. “By talking, we encourage other people to share,” said Green. “And that is one of the ways we break social isolation.” Green had never painted before, but she found that she really took to the medium of collage. “Everyone comes in here and says, ‘Oh, I don’t know what to do. I don’t know how to paint,’” said Green. “There are so many different styles here.” While other women in the group may not be as verbal as she is about their own conditions, looking at the art work, Green states that “so much of it is implied.” The group’s organizer is glad to hear that the participants are finding the experience helpful and cathartic. “This has been about supporting women who need support,” said Sulyn Cedar, the group facilitator. “It’s the camaraderie, it is a peer support art group. It is a support group that the health centre supports.” The art group “Expressions for Women” welcomes all women who are going through some manner of trauma or life-changing event, like the death of a loved one, depression, life-threatening illness, or hard times. While there is a pre-group referral necessary, it is seldom that a woman is denied entry to the group. “It’s very rare that I would say that they can’t come, unless they are medical abilities that can preclude their ability,” said Cedar. “It’s not a drop-in, but it is an open door. They drop in, they drop out,” especially if they get well again, though the camaraderie does keep women coming back Thursdays

from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. While some of the women involved in the art show may have had emotional issues, don’t feel as though you have to walk on egg shells around Kathy Lavender. In fact, the acrylic and mixed media artist would rather you did walk on egg shells – she could use them in her art. “I love the texture and I love the colour,” said Lavender of the shells found on her canvas. Amongst the other artistic tools in her arsenal are PolyFilla and cardboard, used in one item on display, to create the image of stairs, as well as using “rusty” tissue paper. “(I) let things rust over it (the paper) and stick it in,” she explained. Lavender has had some

playing her works, including the upcoming “Art in the Barn” show and at an alumni show at St. Lawrence College’s Brockville campus. “I’m just experimenting,” said Lavender. “It’s fun. No getting in a rut.” Lavender has also spread out into more traditional subjects like desert landscapes and still life flowers, but for the latter piece, she peeled acrylic paint off of her palette, and then scrunching the pieces of paint up to create a flower effect. Lavender has been at work on her art for the past 11 years, starting out, in her own words, with “very traditional” water colour.

New leadership at Storm Internet Services boosts revenue and employees include everything from coffee shops, car dealerships and large construction companies to government agencies and embassies, praise Storm’s agility and willingness to provide customized solutions for non-standard Internet services. In 1996, when the scream of a dial-up modem was associated with wired-only Internet delivery, Storm started with a core team of eight employees, in offices on Sparks Street. The firm had a call centre, provided dial-up services, some web hosting and supported one co-location client. During several ownership and management changes, the company began developing its core expertise in wireless delivery based on what were then primarily rural deployments. In 2010 Chiswell became CEO. He joined the firm a year earlier in 2009 and brought his Ottawa tech sector roots and senior management experience with firms in Dallas, Ottawa, and Virginia. Jonathan Black, another Ottawa tech industry veteran, assumed duties as CFO

the same year. The new leadership team initiated a wireless network build-out to bring their services to Lanark County. Storm developed an original concept to get service into difficult rural areas, a mini-node system where a wireless signal goes from a Storm tower to equipment mounted on everything from a barn roof to a silo and then to the customer’s home or business. In 2011 Storm made a bid to provide more rural wireless infrastructure under the Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN). This is a multi-million-dollar project to bring rural broadband to 95 per cent of homes and businesses in Eastern Ontario outside of Ottawa. With funding assistance from the Royal Bank of Canada, the Business Development Bank of Canada, Export Development Canada, and Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC). Storm won the bid to upgrade wireless services in Lanark, and the Ottawa Valley South areas of the

As a large regional ISP focused on urban Ottawa, rural Lanark and the Ottawa Valley, Chiswell aims to maintain a growth rate of 25 to 30 per cent each year for the next several years – a pace that his team believes will allow the company to maintain its high level of service. “Storm Internet Services has knowledgeable people who bring solutions to our problems,” says Mike Rouleau, Director of Operations, RBC Bluesfest and Ottawa Folk Festival, Ottawa, Ont. “They are a local firm that enables us to substantially expand and improve our services providing concertgoers with real added value.” Submitted by Storm Internet.

EMC Business - Established in 1996 and re-energized by an experienced techsector management team in 2010, today Storm Internet Services Inc. is an regional success story that prides itself on local call centre staff that picks up the phone and provides real answers, no fixed contracts, and tailored solutions. Privately owned and profitable, the company’s revenue has grown 40 per cent over the last 24 months. DSL and fibre customer growth is up 50 per cent, wireless customer growth is up 100 per cent, and the number of employees is up 40 per cent to 40 people over this period. “We are keying into everything from mild disaffection to overt rage at how large Internet Services Providers go about their business,” says Dave Chiswell, Storm’s CEO. “There are a lot of cookie-cutter service templates and offshore call centres that specialize in putting customers on hold. In that sense Storm’s the anti-ISP. Whether it’s a rural residential customer who needs more bandwidth for a Virtual Private Network, or mid-size companies with specific Internet or hosting requirements, we listen carefully and respond quickly. That’s our difference.” While wireless and DSL residential Internet services are a vital business component, currently 50 per cent of Storm’s business comes from hundreds of commercial customers that rely on innovation, flexibility and dependability. They seek services ranging from Wireless Networks, Fibre, DSL, and Wi-Fi for indoor and outdoor corporate and cultural events, to various hosting services and server co-location.

ASHTON, Arthur – In loving memory of my husband who passed away June 29, 2011. You knew I would miss you and tried so hard to stay, But the hardest thing I ever had to do is to be here alone without you day after day. I find myself just sitting and I look over at your chair, And I almost think I can really see you still sitting there. Life for you was getting hard and I know you had to go, As many years of failing health was really taking its toll. Please God put your arms around him and tell him how much I care, And how I look so forward to being with him up there. So for now, I carry on, as our family needs me, and I know they miss you too, But one by one someday we will all be together with you. To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord. Miss you Love You Forever, Your Wife, Helen Beaupre

JUBY, Dale – In precious memory of my darling husband Dale who walked through Heaven’s Gate June 24th, 2012. The moment that you died, My heart split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. I often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon my cheeks. Remembering you is easy, I do it every day, But missing you is a heartache that never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart, and there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, but it never will be the same. Sometimes I think I’m dreaming I can’t believe it’s true If I could have a lifetime wish A dream that would come true I would pray with all my heart For yesterday and you Until we meet again, Forever and always, your loving wife and friend, Diane

GUTKNECHT, Eric Leslie William June 25, 2010 of Kemptville. We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, and the day before that, too. We think of you in silence, we often say your name, But all we have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part. God has you in His keeping, we have you in our heart. We shed tears for what might have been, a million times we’ve cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still, In our heart you hold a place, no one could ever fill. It broke our heart to lose you, but you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, the day God took you Home. Mom and Dad Visit for more information on the Eric Gutknecht Memorial Bursary.

CASSELMAN, EARL B. - In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, who passed away July 2, 2009 We had a Father with a heart of gold, Who was more to us than wealth untold; Without farewell he fell asleep With only memories for us to keep Lovingly remembered and sadly missed by wife, Lois and daughters Linda, Debra, Donna and Glenna and their families

WILLIAMS, Michael - January 14, 1980-June 27, 2003. It’s been 10 years since you’ve been gone You were only 23 when you were taken away from me. You still had so much life to live So many smiles and love to give. We still hear your voice See your smiling face, When we look around, You’re every place- especially in our hearts and minds. We love you Michael. Until we meet again, Always remembered and loved. Mom, Phil, Adam and Melissa

also our way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973. Some families are unable to visit this book on the anniversary of the death of those they love. For this reason we are proud to publish these names weekly as our way of saying…“We Remember”.

DUGDALE, Wayne Ernest – In loving memory of Wayne who passed away June 29, 2012. One year today our brother was called To his eternal rest; Gone where the angels sing so sweet, And taken when God knew best. We miss him here so very much, His presence oft seems nigh, But we all hope in Heaven to meet Where no one says goodbye. Sadly missed by your family

WATT, David, 19572008 – Today seems like such a normal day To those who do not know. To me it has been five long years, Since I had to let you go. I have our family here with me And I know they miss you too, But I have a loneliness in my heart, That belongs just to you. Life together was gone in a wink, Life isn’t as long as we would like to think. To those people whom so many times have cried, Thank you for understanding That a part of me died. Miss you and Jacob With all my love Jo

Miller’s Bay Farm gears up for strawberry season, launches food box program EMC News – Imagine picking strawberries in a tranquil setting with the Rideau Canal just a stone’s throw away, or picking up a food box brimming with fresh produce, grown by people you know by name. At Miller’s Bay Farm, this is reality. Miller’s Bay Farm, located on Rideau Ferry Road, offers locally-grown, farm fresh produce for every season. The family has been farming for four generations and the farm’s road-side stand has become a landmark over the years. “We were both raised on a farm and we appreciate that lifestyle,” said owner Shannon Miller, who operates the farm with her husband, Robert, and their four children. “We’re delighted to raise our children in the same environment.” Miller’s Bay Farm is currently on the cusp of strawberry season – and it’s shaping up to be a banner one. This year has yielded twice as many strawberries to feast on, Miller said. With the season starting now, the pick-your-own operation is ready to welcome families and strawberry enthusiasts of all ages. Of course, there are also pre-picked strawberries ready to enjoy, too. “We’re really pleased with the way the patch is looking,” she said. The Miller’s Bay Farm berry patch is unique in that the pick-your-own fields are beautifully back-dropped by the Rideau Canal. “Families are more than welcome – we encourage families to make memories with us and experience picking here,” she said, adding that strawberry picking is a great way to establish the food-to-plate connection with children. To continue the tradition of sharing their locally-grown produce, Miller’s Bay Farm is launching a food box program this year. Miller said the family decided to add the new program to the mix as it was requested by customers and is beneficial on numerous levels. “It’s a good way for people to expand their food horizons,” she said. The program works so that customers pre-pay to pick up a weekly box of freshly-harvested produce. Beginning the first week of July, the box will host an assortment of what is in season each AUCTIONS

week for 15 weeks. “We’re keeping it simple, but due to the nature of farming, we won’t know ahead of time what types of produce will be in the basket each week,” Miller said, noting the weekly change of produce also adds an element of anticipation. She said participating in the food box program allows for a built-in cost savings for the customer when comparing it to the foodstand prices. “This way, new customers also get a good taste of all the things available from our farm,” Miller said. But travelling to the farm isn’t the only option for enjoying fresh produce grown close to home. For the third year, a Miller’s Bay Farm produce stand will be conveniently located in Perth in front of Penny’s Pit Stop Restaurant on Highway 7 east. “We have a lot of customers from Perth and although the farm is only a few minutes out of town, we thought it would be beneficial to bring our produce closer, to serve our customers,” Miller said. The stand will be at that location starting when strawberries become available and continuing throughout the summer. The Miller’s Bay Farm stand is unique in Perth as it provides produce that is grown only 12-kilometres from its location – further driving home the aspect of local food.

Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society private garden tour July 6 EMC Lifestyle – Once upon a time there were six enchanted gardens. These gardens were the home of magical creatures, plants and objects, and all was wonderful. Until, that is, a wicked sorceress cast a spell that caused the animals to be turned to stone and the objects to lose their powers. The plants were sad at this and, while continuing on with their lives, they no longer danced in the light of the sun and the moon. But then, it was decreed that on the

magical date of July 6, a group of brave gardeners would set forth to find the magical creatures and objects in the gardens and only by finding all 12 would the spell be broken and the gardens returned to their former joy. Are you one of these brave gardeners? All you need to do is contact Mark Stevens at 613-928-2652 or to purchase a $15 ticket that will open the gates to the six gardens and to a chicken barbecue

at Delta fairgrounds too, once you’ve completed your task. The gardens will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 6. Barbecue and prizes to follow. Come join in the fun for the return of the Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society’s tour of private gardens in the township, scavenger hunt and chicken barbecue. Coming up on July 3 is the regular monthly meeting of the Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society at the Portland Community Hall at 7:15 p.m. This

month’s guest speaker is Carol Dunk, master gardener and past president of the Ontario Horticultural Society. Carol will present Internet gardening spots, a great trip down the garden path for a rainy day. Monthly meetings are free to members, with membership a mere $15 a year. Non-members pay a $5 entry fee for each meeting, making the annual membership a real deal! Come join us! Submitted by the Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society.

Nominations now being accepted for Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation scholarship EMC News – Canada has one of the highest reported prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the world and 20 to 30 per cent of people with IBD are diagnosed before the age of 20. To support Canadian students living with IBD and raise awareness about this chronic disease, the AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program is accepting nominations from young people living with IBD. In partnership with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC), the AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program is designed to award students who are living well with IBD, and strive to sustain an optimal level of wellness allowing them to excel while inspiring others to do the same. Through an unrestricted educational grant by AbbVie, CCFC will extend seven one-time scholarships of up to $5,000 CAN to students living with IBD who are entering into or are currently attending a post-secondary educational institution. Students of all ages are welcome to apply and the scholarship can be used for any Canadian post-secondary institution.

“I am committed to living each day to the fullest and I’m so grateful to the CCFC and AbbVie for giving me the opportunity and inspiration to push harder and help me excel at my academic goals,” says Clinton Shard, one of seven 2012 “gutsy” scholarship winners. “While the monetary scholarship provides an incentive, it also represents an investment in assisting students living with IBD and helping us achieve our dreams.” Through initiatives such as the scholarship program, AbbVie aims to continue accelerating the recognition of the burden of IBD and help further the global dissemination of evolving approaches to better care for people living with IBD. “AbbVie is proud to partner again this year with CCFC for the AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program. This initiative is a great example of a partnership that makes a difference in people’s lives,” states Felipe Pastrana, general manager of AbbVie Canada. “While our name, AbbVie, has changed – our commitment to the IBD community endures. Over THE EMC - 36 - Thursday, June 27, 2013

the years, AbbVie has shown continued commitment to people living with IBD by helping organizations and health care providers alike better understand the impact of these diseases on people’s lives. AbbVie recognizes the need for better disease diagnosis and monitoring to help improve the lives of millions of people affected by this chronic and debilitating disease.” IBD incidence rates on rise Inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, is a group of disorders that causes the intestines to become inflamed and ulcerated. This is caused by an abnormal response of the body’s immune system. A recent survey conducted by the CCFC found that 69 percent of people who had IBD when they were young were delayed in completing their postsecondary education. Eighty-nine per cent who had IBD as a child felt that they could have achieved more at school without their disease. Since there is currently no known cure or cause, young people need strategies to achieve their best long-term health despite their diagnosis.

Scholarship details The AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program, in partnership with CCFC, is designed for applicants of any age entering into or attending a Canadian-based post-secondary institution. Applicants must be: • A legal and permanent resident of Canada; • Diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease by a physician; • Seeking an associate’s, undergraduate, or graduate degree from a Canadian university; college; or enrolled in a trade school educational program; Enrolled in or awaiting acceptance from a Canadian-based post-educational institution for the fall semester of 2013; and A student who demonstrates academic aspiration and strives to sustain an optimal level of wellness in spite of their IBD, allowing them to excel to reach their personal and academic goals and inspiring others to do the same.

Support group for stroke survivors offers more than information By LAURIE WEIR


EMC News – If you have had a stroke, or are giving care to a loved one who is a stroke survivor, then you may want to check the stroke support group in town. Stroke Understood is a support group for stroke survivors and their families and friends, and participants meet once a month in Perth and Brockville. Financially supported by the South East Local Integrated Health Network (LHIN), it is facilitated by Community and Primary Health Care (CPHC) umbrella. In Perth and Brockville, Annette Pinkney is the health promoter. Both groups meet the fourth Wednesday of the month from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. The Perth group meets at the Legion, Branch 244 and in Brockville at the 1000 Islands Mall (in the end closest to the Galaxy movie theatre). “The Perth Legion has been very supportive and they offer us the space for free,” Pinkney said. “This group is very busy. We have about 10 to 15 people each week. I’ve had intakes for 18 people.” In Brockville, it’s a fairly new support group with intakes beginning in January. They have five to nine people in attendance on average. “Social support is key,” said Pinkney. “If they can increase their self confidence, then their feelings of isolation, fear and loneliness will ease.” Pinkney is in contact with the local hospitals and is able to set up meetings with stroke survivors.

That’s where volunteer visitor Deborah Bowes comes in. A stroke survivor herself, she is a positive inspiration to those around her. “I enjoy it,” Bowes says of her visits to the Perth hospital to chat with people who have suffered a stroke, and their families. “People see I am a survivor and I am getting along well… and it’s survivor… not stroke victim. We are not victims of a stroke. We have survived a stroke.” Seeing Bowes, one wouldn’t even know she’d had a stroke some 20-plus years ago. “I’ve had great therapy over the years and a positive attitude. That’s the difference,” Bowes says, who visits with patients on a weekly basis. “I encourage them to come to the support group and see what we’re all about,” she says. Group meetings are flexible, added Pinkney. “They tell me what they would like to do. We have an active membership. They like all sorts of things… art, photography. We often have guest speakers and I will combine the two groups for that sometimes.” Support group meetings are open to anyone who is recovering from the effects of a stroke. At a meeting, participants learn from each other and share strategies for success. “They discover what resources are out there and build a social network,” Pinkney said. There is no cost to join the group and guests are encouraged to drop by a meeting at any time. For more information, call Pinkney at 613-3423693 ext. 407 or email

YAK partners with Garbage Gofer to launch e-waste depot in Perth EMC News - If you are like most households, you probably have a few shelves full of non-functioning or obsolete electronic devices, like computers, televisions, printers, telephones, cameras, cell phones, MP3 players, stereo equipment, or other unwanted electronic waste. You don’t want to throw them out, because they contain valuable metals, as well as some hazardous products that contaminate landfills. But where can you take them to be safely recycled and disposed of? The Youth Action Kommittee of Perth & District (YAK) is excited to be partnering with Garbage Gofer and

SHIFT Recycling on the establishment of an electronic waste depot in Perth. Starting June 21, YAK will accept small amounts (car loads or less) of electronic waste at their Youth Centre at 1 Sherbrooke Street East, in the old Perth Shoe factory just across from the Shandex manufacturing facility (formerly Perth Soap). Your unwanted electronic materials can be brought in during YAK’s regular operating hours, Monday to Friday from 2 to 7 p.m. Please, do not bring or drop off material outside of those hours – it is essential that staff or volunteers from YAK are on hand to help unload and en-

sure the materials are in fact acceptable. If people just drop of materials, it will put the entire program at risk. So what happens with the collected material? YAK has worked out an arrangement with Garbage Gofer to pick up the collected material on a regular basis and bring it to their facility on Conlon Drive, where they will sort the material, and prepare it for shipping via tractor trailers. Shift Recycling is the approved Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) primary processor that will pick up the sorted and palletized materials from Garbage Gofer. The whole program is funded by OES, which gets

in revenues in pert from Environmental Handling Fees on new electronic products. Electronics contain precious and base metals that can be recovered through recycling at processing facilities. A good example of how these metals get reused is the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic medals, which contain recycled metal from electronic waste. More than a carload? Contact Garbage Gofer’s Rick White at 613-8125128 to arrange a time when truck loads of e-waste can be taken directly to Garbage Gofer’s Perth facility. Area residents and businesses can also arrange for pick-up service with Garbage Gofer. A small fee will be charged for pick up service. Rick is also looking into the possibility of offering once a month Saturday morning collection events – stay tuned for details and dates. The great news is that this is truly a win-win initiative. YAK wins, because they get paid per tonne for all e-waste collected. They also get to involve some

of their youth participants in helping to unload and organize materials, and area residents get to see the YAK facilities, participants and staff. Garbage Gofer is a private sector business that gets paid for their value added sorting and packing, which helps them grow their business of junk removal, clean up, renovations, and metal and appliance recycling. The program also allows the White family to continue to give back to the community. Local landfills win, as this program will ensure that many tonnes of valuable materials do not end up in area landfill sites. Since some electronics contain potentially hazardous materials will be safely recycled or disposed of the environment wins too. All collected materials are re-processed, recycled and/or safely disposed of here in North America, so this also ensures that materials do not end up oversees where they can create potential health and safety issues.

Crazy for Crazy for You: St. John drama student play a big hit EMC Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When it comes to musical theatre, the merit of the play can often times be measured by the audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response. In the case of St. John Catholic High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent production of Crazy for You, the audience was driven crazy with laughter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the good kind! The play starts when Bobby Child, a bankerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son who wants nothing more than to be an actor, auditions for Bela Zangler, a famous Broadway producer whose character development starts and ends with an amazing mustache, and blows his big break by stepping on Zanglerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foot. What an opportune moment to introduce Bobbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s controlling fiance, along with his disappointed mother. As they both drag him back to the harsh realities of New York life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his mother threatening to cut off his allowance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so begins the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many amazing one-liners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s married to me,â&#x20AC;? his fiance insists, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need an allowance.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need a psychologist.â&#x20AC;? Zing! Bobby, overwhelmed with the conflict, flees to Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose a deal on an old theatre to placate his mother. There, he meets and falls in love with Polly Baker, whose father owns the theatre. Suffice to say, she wants nothing to do with him, despite his attempts to woo her by comparing her to the Venus de Milo, except for her arms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or rather, that she has arms. In an attempt at winning Pollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart, and saving the theatre from himself, Bobby disguises himself as Bela Zangler and invites the Zangler Follies, a group of showgirls, to help him bring the theater back to life. Not only do Polly and her father have to watch out for Bobby, but also the local tavern keeper, Lank Hawkins, who has his eye on the theatre property too, and may have plans to build a casino. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be stupid. Who would come to Nevada to gamble?â&#x20AC;? he spat, initially opposed to the idea. It has to be said of the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s script, and the actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spot on comedic timing, that breathes life into it, that the intelligent and self-aware wit, paired with zany slapstick stunts, make sure that there is something to tickle everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sense of humor. However, the scene that really steals the show is when the real Zangler shows up to drink at the tavern with the fake Zangler, as they mimic each othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; drunken movements perfectly, both too inebriated to realize that they are not looking in a mirror. The scene quickly turns into a duet as both the mustachioed

High school musicals, always a moving experience - especially for this guy, standing tall atop a riser.

men contemplate the cruelties of love, confiding in each other until they both pass out on the tavern floor. Overall, this production did everything right. There were some technical difficulties in the beginning with the actorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; microphones, but it was handled with grace as they projected their voices to make up for it. The costumes were colourful and bright; the sets were well made and included for the use of a projector in the background to show a New York skyline or dessert landscape accordingly; the choreography was entertaining; the script delivery was great, with facial expressions ranging from hilariously grandiose to subtle and authentic in an instant; historical anachronisms were well placed and lighthearted â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like an Ottawa Senators flag waving in the background of a musical finale; and the singing talent was superb.

Former students reminisce with favoured teacher, some 60 years later By TONIA KELLY

EMC News - The year 1952 remains golden in the memories of a group of students from Brighton Public School who welcomed a new teacher, Ralph Greenhorn, to their Grade 7 class. On June 19, 2013, 21 from that original class and a subsequent Grade 8 class, came from Brighton, Nepean, Pickering, Belleville, Kingston, Calabogie, Niagara Falls, Bowmanville, Peterborough, Stouffville, Trenton and Rosemeath, to honour their former teacher with lunch at a restaurant in Perth – more than 60 years later. In his early 20s, Greenhorn was less than 10 years older than his students and he speaks of them as one would speak of old friends who supported him through his first challenging year. “I remember that Grade 7 class in particular,” he recalls, “I think, because it was my first class where I was in sole charge of about 27 students and I had nobody to turn to, only the good Lord . . . They were so kind, so good, it was the type of class where I could have gone out in the hall and read a book as long as they had work to do, they would be doing it.” Teaching this particular group was a confidence builder. “It said to me, ‘Look you can do it.’ It was a class who came, it seemed, ready to learn, and I was ready to teach.” In those early years, Greenhorn taught mainly English and science, but other subjects as well, always looking for and encouraging creative sparks in his students: “Basically you can either hear it or see it,” he said. “So, if I’m seeing something that is consistently


Teacher Ralph Greenhorn and student Carol (Bonisteel) King enjoy a reunion after some 60 years. good over a period of time, then there’s an ability in there.” During an art class in that first year, he walked up and down the aisles reviewing the work of the students and noticed one student working on an intricate piece of artwork. “He was really concentrating,” said Greenhorn. “I said, ‘Francis, don’t you ever give this up.’ That’s all I needed to say . . . because when you do a good piece of work, you know pretty well it’s a good piece of work, (but) when your teacher tells you . . . that meant so much more.” Frank Edwards of Kingston was that

student. After attending the Ontario College of Art, Edwards became a medical artist illustrator in the anatomy department of Queen’s University and at the Kingston General and Hotel Dieu hospitals. For many years, he was also the political cartoonist the Kingston daily. An accomplished artist whose work is in many private collections, his paintings are on display at the Gallery Raymond in Kingston. Edwards recalled the special attention he received from his Grade 7 teacher when, at the age of 12 or 13, he had sent in “one of those little things in the back

of comic books,” and won a scholarship to the Chicago School of Art. It wasn’t feasible at that age to pack up and move to Chicago, but he was excited and showed the letter of offer to Greenhorn. “He told me to wait until recess, together we walked up the street,” Edwards recalled. “He read the letter, talked about it, he took it seriously, and that really meant a lot. What always impressed me was that never once did he talk down to me. It’s very important to someone of that age. I always remembered that and I’ve tried to remember never to talk down to young people.” Another of those Grade 7 students, Carol (Bonisteel) King, has a vivid memory of her first sight of Greenhorn. “For one thing he was such a goodlooking chap, all the girls had a crush on him, and I remember that first day of school with his navy blazer, grey flannels and a striped tie, he made an impression as soon as he walked in the door.” She also remembered his academic skills, noting that every day they had to parse a sentence, and write threesentence paragraphs. She and others remembered rigorous training in the multiplication tables, and a math formula that they recite to the present day: “If three bananas cost 20 cents, then eight bananas would cost eight times 20 divided by three. We had that memorized – the bottom left times the top right divided by the top left.” Catherine (Butters) McLean credited Greenhorn for leading her around the blind spots in math. “I struggled with math until I got to Grade 7; I’d be in tears over math. After I had him, from

then on in high school, I got very good marks. The same with English, he was an amazing teacher, he set me on the right road, I think. He gave us confidence, and he was a good-looking guy!” Catherine Hommersen remembered his grammar lessons. “Mr. Greenhorn was the best grammar teacher I have ever had. The one thing I remember is, after lunch every day, he’d walk into the classroom and say, ‘Please open your Using Our Language book at such-andsuch a page.’ He was fantastic. It was an excellent legacy that Mr. Greenhorn left with us.” Another former student, Jim Harrison, remembers a good group of kids, and the teacher “who kept a lot of us on the straight and narrow, we didn’t want him to hear bad things about us,” he said. “He was good with us and (because of him), I think, we all went on to achieve things that may have been above us.” Leonard Jackson was one of the several students inspired to become teachers themselves. “I taught for 34 years and you get one of those great classes, if you’re lucky, once in your lifetime. It’s sort of special that he thinks we were that class for him.” Although the former students would meet occasionally and Greenhorn’s name usually came up in their discussions, Edwards said, “No one seemed to know where he was, what was happening, but we all had a connection to him.” Carol King decided to remedy this and, after several false starts and a little help from Google, she found him hiding See FORMER page P17

Carolina Retirement Suites C


Some of Ralph Greenhorn’s students from some 60 years ago, gathered in Perth for a celebratory lunch.

Former teacher remembered by students From page P16 students, he paid solemn tribute to absent friends,

fondly remembering students who had died young, along with words of guidance to those first students who had come to honour him, the kind of words that no doubt inspired them all those years ago and motivated them to live up to their potential. Being retired in Perth, Greenhorn lives not far from the farm where he was born and raised in Phillipsville, near Toledo, and not far from where he himself attended a one-room school house in Phillipsville and then Athens High School. Beginning with his first class in Brighton, his career spanned more than 40 years, with 22 years teaching at three different schools in North York. He spent the last 20 years before retirement at Smiths Falls District Collegiate.

Perth Academy of Musical Theatre returns with a bang this summer EMC Events - From Grease to Fiddler on the Roof, Shakespeare to Molière, infant to adult, the Perth Academy of Musical Theatre has introduced students of all ages to singing, acting and dancing for 15 years. “It’s hard to believe that we’ve been around for that long,” says proprietor Heidi Stepanek, “and yet, it’s hard to remember doing anything else. This is my passion and my life.” The Perth Academy of Musical Theatre, or PAMT, started out in the summer of 1998, offering two youth musical theatre workshops (Annie and Little Shop of Horrors), intended to teach local kids the basics of the “triple threat” (acting, singing and dancing), and culminating in the performance of a full-scale Broadway musical. Ms. Stepanek began the business as a summer job, and a means of putting herself through university. Since then, the business has grown in size and scope, becoming a full-time occupation for Stepanek, and for her several employees. Starting with a mere 30 students that first summer, PAMT now teaches classes to over 300 students a year, many of whom travel from great distances –Germany, Mexico, California, Winnipeg and New York City – to take part in the award-winning, one-ofa-kind programs. PAMT has also graduated from offering two summer workshops, to running over 20 programs throughout the year, for both youths and adults of all ages, with repertoire varying from musical theatre to drama to vocal technique to swordplay and stage combat. Over the 15 years of PAMT’s opera-

tions, the unique arts-based business has received several prestigious accolades, including the Perth Chamber of Commerce’s Business Achievement Award in 2004, and Stepanek was nominated for the YWCA’s Women of Distinction awards in 2006 for her role in PAMT’s success. However, Stepanek feels that the business’s greatest achievement is the impact the programs have had on her students. “So many young people come through our doors for the first time nervous and unsure of themselves,” says Stepanek, “By the end of their first day, they are already a part of the family atmosphere that the staff and other students have created here, and bond with lifelong friends from all over the world. This place really is magical!” Students, parents, and audience members of PAMT’s excellent productions consistently rave about the quality of the instruction, and of the final performances put on by the company. Particularly important is the emphasis on making sure that every student receives time in the spotlight, either singing a solo, dancing a feature dance, or acting out a lead role. “Building confidence in our students is our primary mandate,” relates Stepanek. “I love hearing stories from our parents who say that their child was always the shyest in their class, then after a PAMT workshop they became stronger and more self-assured. PAMT is such a special and unique community of non-judgmental and spirited individuals with positive attitudes, devoted to providing a fun and safe environment for us to experiment artistically without

It’s a wonderful non-judgemental atmosphere where we are all “family.” Having just returned from a sabbatical year, where Stepanek traveled around the continent with her family exploring new places, people and, especially, theatres, she comes back with a fresh perspective and energy, ready for PAMT’s exciting 2013 season. PAMT has now


moved to a larger, more impressive venue, the Perth Studio Theatre at 63 Gore St E., and rumours of an expansion of the business abound for future seasons. This summer, PAMT is offering four unique programs, with something available for all ages and interests. The summer begins with Glee 3 (Ages five to 18, from July 15 to 19) where students will learn to sing and dance their way through songs from the popular TV series. The workshop culminates in a full-scale production at the Perth Studio Theatre on Friday, July 19, as well as a special performance on the main stage of the famous Stewart Park Festival in Perth on Saturday, July 20. Next up is Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Ages seven to 18, from

July 22 to Aug, 2) where fans of fantasy and Tolkien, both old and new, can make their dream worlds into reality. A professional swordfighting and stage combat instructor will be on hand to teach (safe and fun) techniques, expert acting and singing coaches will help students bring their characters to life, and spectacular costumes and elaborate sets (including the massive walls of Helm’s Deep) complete this epic production, which will culminate on the Studio Theatre stage on Aug. 1 and 2. PAMT’s famous teenage production follows: The Who’s Tommy (Ages 12 to 19, from Aug. 5 to 16). This fabulous rock-opera, which is also playing at the Stratford Festival this summer, is a highlight of the season, with opportunities for teens to have a life-changing experience, working with a live band, and with professional voice, acting and dance coaches from across Canada. Final performances will take the stage on August 15, 16 and 17. The summer finishes with a fun-filled production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid (Ages four to 12, from August 19 to 30) where young performers become a mermaid or sea creature as the theatre turns on magical blue lights, brings out colourful costumes, puts on headset microphones, plays some lively calypso music, and everyone dances their way “Under the Sea!” The students take to the stage for their final production on Aug. 29 and 30.

EMC News - On Saturday, June 15 the Friends were part of a special ceremony to unveil a new interpretive display along the Silver Queen Mine Trail at Murphys Point. The ceremony was an opportunity to appreciate the dedicated group of volunteers who saw a need and had a passion to get the job done. Tobi Kiesewalter, the Park’s Natural Heritage Education Leader explained: “About 150 years ago the mining industry got its start in North Burgess Township. It was not trained prospectors or experienced miners who got the ball rolling. It was mostly farmers who used their expertise, resourcefulness and whatever tools they had to extract the green and shiny black minerals that they had stumbled upon in their fields. This, in turn, helped them to eke out a living on the rugged and unforgiving Canadian Shield. As the industry caught on, companies began to invest and, for a brief time, business was good. Companies like the General Electric Company, the German American Apatite Company and the Dominion Improvement and Development Company purchased and operated mines in the area. They acquired steam boilers, machinery, wagons and horses, they built infrastructure and hired workers. It was a mining boom that left North Burgess at the centre of one of the mining capitals of the world.” These are the facts about a significant chapter in Ontario’s history. Of course there’s more to it than that. There’s a whole story that staff at

the park strive to interpret to anyone visiting. “Some of the story bits are known, others are left to the imagination,” Kiesewalter said. “For example, we know that the Adams Wagon Company made this wagon in their large factory in Brantford, Ont. We know that it likely was the first line of transportation of minerals from Lanark County to markets around the world, including England, Germany and the United States. We can speculate about the mine manager who may have ordered this wagon from the Adams Wagon Company catalogue or the wagon driver who pocketed a few pennies to transport the odd extra passenger or the everobedient horses who worked so hard along the uneven roads.” These stories will be brought to life for visitors to this site thanks to the efforts of a dedicated group of volunteers: Rudy Lepp; Tom Spence; John, Judy and Ian Bufton; Gord Munroe; Dan Woods; Wayne Smith; Bob Laidlaw; Tony Walsh and Larry Paquette. They researched and accurately restored the ore wagon, engineered and built a shelter for it, positioned the horses, outfitted them with harnesses and equipment, and subsequently repaired the porcupine damage with new equipment. They are not miners or trained restoration experts. But, just like the farmers who 150 years ago started the industry, they are incredibly resourceful and they brought a wealth of expertise to this project. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a

professional museum-quality, 3D display with original artifacts has got to be worth even more than that. The thousands of visitors who walk down this trail annually have had the benefit of some interpretation and storytelling in the past. What this display now does is so effectively set the tone and context of what visitors will get to see further down the trail. It signals the beginning of a story of survival on the Canadian Shield, the world economy, entrepreneurship, hopes and dreams of prospectors, workers and company men and the brief but significant chapter in Ontario’s history when the minerals of Lanark County went out to the rest of the world. On behalf of the visitors who venture down this trail, thanks to you for your passion and dedication. Thank you also to Grover Lightford, who donated this wagon from the nearby McLaren Mine Site many years ago, along with many other artifacts. You had the foresight to realize that this was part of a bigger story that deserved to be heard. Thanks also to the efforts of the Friends of Murphys Point Park and Beth Peterkin for raising the grant money required to buy materials, fake horses, barrels and an interpretive sign. And, finally, thanks to Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization and Valley Heartland for contributing the necessary funds. Submitted by Friends of Murphys Point

Therapeutic riding seeks volunteers

Tee time reader support EMC Sports - The ninth annual Jim Noble & RBC Dominion Securities Golf Classic in support of Perth & District Union Public Library’s Summer Literacy Program raised a record $29,200 this year. The proceeds fund the library’s one-on-one tutoring program, now in its 24th year, which will offer reading help to 114 children ages four to eight this summer. To support the long-term operations of the program, the library has established an endowment fund at the Perth & District Community Foundation. More information about that fund is available at Pictured at the event on Friday, June 14, are, from left, Jim Noble, library CEO Elizabeth Goldman, program coordinator Adam Noonan, library board member Joan Wickware, children’s librarian Rachel Warren, tutor Graeme McTavish and tutor Jessica Strong.

EMC News – The Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program offers specialized riding lessons to children and adults with physical and/or developmental disabilities throughout Lanark County. The riding program is in its 27th year of providing this beneficial therapy, rehabilitation and recreation where horses are the helping partners. The summer riding season is just beginning and the program is looking for volunteers to assist with riding lessons in both Perth at Cedar Rock Farm, and in Almonte at Willaway Farm on Ramsay Concession #2. If you are interested in being with enthusiastic riders, out in the fresh air and ready for a little exercise, come out and see what it is all about. There is a volunteer training clinic in Almonte Thursday, June 27 at 9 a.m. for new volunteers. Please call the number below for additional information. No experience with horses is necessary. You will be shown how to sidewalk beside the rider using different support holds and offering encouragement and direction. For people who have had experience with horses, techniques for leading a horse with a disabled rider on board will be explained. Safety is the main concern for all who are involved in the riding program so it is important that volunteers learn how to be comfortable around the horses which comes with time and experience. If you are interested, volunteers are also given the opportunity to learn how to groom the horses and take up to prepare the horses for the lesson. This is a wonderful chance to learn some new skills and be involved in a therapy and recreation that provides physical benefits as well as social, emotional and psychological gains. Some volunteers come out for one hour and others stay for the whole morning, the choice is left up to the individual. If you would like more information or to register as a volunteer, please call 613-257-7121 ext. 236 or check out our website at: Submitted by the Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program.

Pennies keep Buck Lake Boatilla afloat physical disabilities. Her goal is to raise $1,000 before the Boatilla. While making her parents very proud, Montana’s special efforts have achieved results beyond fundraising for Easter Seals. In addition to fundraising for the Send A Kids To Camp program, the Buck Lake Boatilla also has a mandate of community building by being good neighbours and participating in local activities. Through her efforts, Montana has caught the attention of Buck Lakers and given them a sense of unity and purpose. Her desire to do something good for children with physical disabilities has also done something good for this rural community. The Buck Lake Boatilla has been a wonderful community success since its inception nine years ago. A community of about 450 has rallied behind a cause of giving so children with physical disabilities will have a chance to go to summer camp at Camp Merrywood on the Big Rideau. ‘’It is all about the kids!’’ has been the Boatilla motto since it started. But it is really more about the kids than we realize. There is something special about youthful idealism, community building and benevolence. Just look at Montana Faye Wilson; we have a lot to learn and appreciate. Submitted by Camp Merrywood

EMC News - There’s something special going on in Perth Road Village, a hamlet 24 kms north of Kingston bordering on scenic Buck Lake. It is a unique combination of youthful idealism, community building and benevolence. It is embodied in Montana Faye Wilson, a shy, reserved 12-year-old who is in Grade 6 at Perth Road Public School. Montana’s story began last fall when the federal government announced that pennies would no longer be in circulation. With youthful idealism, Montana decided she would collect pennies from customers at her family corner store in Perth Road Village. Her plan was to donate them to the Buck Lake Boatilla and Community barbecue, an annual event which has raised over $86,000 to send 43 children and youth with physical disabilities to Easter Seals Camp Merrywood in eight years. Her jar used to collect the pennies soon contained larger coins, so Montana decided to coin a phrase (pun intended) to further promote her efforts. “Coins For Kids’’ was born and to date Montana, a shy, unassuming pre-teen has raised over $500 for the Buck Lake Boatilla, which will take place this year on June 29. When asked why she decided to do this and what she hoped to accomplish, Montana replied that she wanted to have fun and do something to help kids with

MVFN celebrates 25 years encouraging love, knowledge of nature EMC News – The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) held their annual general meeting (AGM) at the Almonte Civitan Club on May 16 followed by a very successful Spring Gathering event. The AGM was conducted by Ken Allison, president of MVFN, with attendance by the board and club members. Ken provided the membership with an overview of the organizations activities and finances over the last year. This is the club’s 25th year as an organization and during that time it has been very active promoting the understanding and awareness of the natural world in our community, with its popular natural history lectures series, canoe, hiking and birding outings, environmental programs for children and youth, and strong support for local conservation issues. The treasurer, Robert McCook presented the finances which show a well managed club which can continue to be very active. Ken introduced each of the board members for the coming year, and of special note is that Cliff Bennett, one of the founding members has once again been elected to the board where he will serve as vice-president for 201314. Cliff has been very actively involved with MVFN from it first days and will ensure it continues to be a vibrant and relevant organization. The AGM was followed by the wellattended and exciting Spring Gathering event. Starting with the reception, old friends and acquaintances shared drinks and chatted; many visited the Young Naturalists exhibit, the Reduce Plastic Bag campaign table and made bids on the silent auction items. The Almonte Civitan Club did an excellent job of providing top notch service and a very tasty meal. A special thanks goes out to all the volunteers, especially Rosemary McGinnis, this year’s event co-ordinator for MVFN.

Christmas Bird Count, enthusiastically guided the group through the evening culminating in a talk by Éric HébertDaly, executive director of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society. Éric provided a passionate and insightful look at how conservation work was done traditionally such as through protected area campaigns, local land trusts, and renaturalization projects, and he explored how we might be more efficient and successful in the years to come through a shift towards a focus on ecological integrity, and methods such as land-use planning, network (versus islands) planning, multilateralism, and First Nations involvement to name a few. Eric fielded many interesting questions after his presentation, reflecting that our community is very engaged when it comes to the environment and conservation. It was a very successful and enjoyable evening, and everyone is reminded to put May 15 on their calendars for next year’s gathering. This summer, ongoing MVFN activities include the canoe/kayak program and annual summer walk, and the clubs’ monthly natural history lectures resume with a new series in September. Please see for details of these upcoming activities and for membership information. Iain Wilkes is the publicity chair for the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists.

The inaugural Calabogie Country Music Festival will take over Calabogie Peaks Resort June 28 to 30, featuring a talented group of country music stars, including the Ottawa area’s Kira Isabella, right. Isabella won the Canadian Country Music Association’s Rising Star Award in 2012 and will close the festival on Sunday, June 30. Above, Headlining Saturday’s performances will be Dallas Smith, who spent the last 10 years as the frontman for the band Default.


EMC Entertainment – Calabogie Peaks Resort will be buzzing this weekend with top Canadian country music stars at the inaugural Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Country Music Festival. Dallas Smith, Kira Isabella, and Jordan McIntosh are just a few of the exciting acts to hit the stage during the three-day event. The festival was conceived by the same team that organizes the wildly popular Calabogie Blues & Ribfest, which is heading into its third year. The Calabogie Country Music Festival will deliver top country music, on-site camping, beer gardens, food vendors, chairlift rides, a kids’ zone and more. Hailing from nearby Carleton Place, singer Jordan McIntosh is the latest sensation on the country music scene. He will headline the Friday night show at the festival, with well-known singer Leah Daniels as the opener. McIntosh, who has acquired a large fan base already, is sure to deliver a performance that will showcase that show-stopping talent. Dallas Smith is set to headline Saturday evening’s events. Numerous country bands, including Autumn Hill, Whitney Rose, The Working Class & Ryan Cook, will be taking the stage, beginning at noon leading up to the night’s big event, a performance by Canadian country music star, Smith. He delivers an outstanding show, which is a must-see for any country music fan. Smith spent the last ten years fronting the popular band Default, before stepping into a solo career in 2011. He released his solo debut country album, Jumped Right In, back in May 2012 and its first single, ‘Somebody Somewhere’, immediately soared up the Canadian Hot 100 charts. Sunday’s wrap up to the festival includes performances by Tim Chaisson, the ever-popular country band Silver Creek, Kerosene Creek, and local favourites, Ambush. Closing out the festival will be the exciting Canadian Country Music Award winner Kira Isabella. In 2012, Isabella won the Canadian Country Music Association’s Rising Star Award. Her debut CD quickly garnered national attention and she became one to watch in the Canadian country music scene. The festival grounds will open at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 28 with onsite camping. Music performances will commence at 7 p.m. More information and tickets can be found at www.calabogiecountry. com.

EMC Lifestyle - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi, Bill,â&#x20AC;? writes Elizabeth Spratt of Dundas, Ontario, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it was the 1976 MGB in your column that prompted me to write to you. I had a 1979 MGB with the black bumper when I was living in Victoria, B.C., in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s. At the time there were many beautiful older English cars on the road there and I decided I wanted to own one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tracked down this 1960 Morris Minor convertible and bought it in August 1983. Interestingly, the previous owner had put an ad in Road & Track magazine, which was not on the newsstands until after I bought the car. I later bought the magazine, which included a photo of my car. Just after buying the car, I baked a cake that looked like the car and gave it to the previous owner. That was fun! â&#x20AC;&#x153;I drove this car as my only vehicle in Victoria for six years. I even took it one time through the mountains to Nelson, B.C., with no problems. I moved east in 1992, initially to Toronto, then in 1996 to Dundas. In 1997 I had the Morris sent here â&#x20AC;&#x201C; barge to Vancouver, train to Toronto, and flatbed truck that delivered it to my door on July 1, 1997. Since then, the car has been repainted with a new top and various other bits of work done. A few years ago, I visited the Morris Minor Centre in England and brought back a few parts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every August, the car with me and various friends over the years goes in the Dundas Cactus Festival Parade. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of fun and I hear lots of nice comments about the car. In the 2010 parade, we celebrated the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50th anniversary. This year, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be celebrating 30 years of ownership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great, Bill, that you are so interested in old cars in Canada.â&#x20AC;?

The Algonquin land claim – capital transfer and lands Canadians can cancel wireless contracts

Robert Potts will be transparent and accountable to all Algonquin beneficiaries. The AOO will develop the governance structure, mandates and powers of these Institutions to ensure the most effective protection of all beneficiaries’ interests. Land has been critical to the way of life for the Algonquins and will play an important role in the cultural recognition and future economic sustainability of the AOO. The Preliminary Draft AIP establishes that Ontario will transfer not less than 117,500 acres of Provincial Crown Land to one or more Algonquin Institutions. This lands package consists of more than 200 parcels of land ranging in size from a few acres to more than 30,000 acres. The AOO’s proposed land selections were each chosen for the following purposes: (a) Historical/Spiritual

(b) Community Recreation and Environmental Protection (c) Economic Development, Resources, Tourist Commercial (d) Future Institutional, Residential, Industrial Development The Provincial Crown Land in the Settlement Area is 3.3 million acres. Nearly 2 million acres constitutes Provincial Parks, including Algonquin Park (1.8 million acres), where the AOO will have extensive management planning input. This leaves approximately 1.3 million acres of Provincial Crown Land to be considered for AOO land selections. The proposed lands package comprises approximately four per cent of the Provincial Crown Land in the land claim Settlement Area. Through the transfer of this land, existing access to cottages, private properties, or navigable waterways will not be lost or compromised, and no new First Nation reserves will be created. A Treaty will provide economic development opportunities that will not only benefit the AOO, but will also provide a tremendous benefit to our neighbours living within Eastern Ontario. This column is the second in a series providing insights into Algonquin history, the foundation for the land claim, elements of the Preliminary Draft AIP and next steps in the journey. The next column will focus on the Parks and Protected Areas component of the Preliminary Draft AIP. For more information visit Robert Potts is Principal Negotiator and Senior Legal Counsel for the Algonquins of Ontario.

after two years under new wireless code EMC News – On June 3, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) issued a wireless code that will make it easier for Canadians to understand their contracts and sets out their basic rights. The code will apply to new contracts for cell phones and other personal mobile devices starting on Dec. 2, 2013. “Every day, Canadians rely on wireless devices while in their homes, at their jobs, at school or travelling abroad,” said Jean-Pierre Blais, chairman of the CRTC. “The wireless code will contribute to a more dynamic marketplace by making it possible for Canadians to discuss their needs with service providers at least every two years.” The wireless code addresses the main frustrations that Canadians shared with the CRTC, which included the length of wireless contracts, cancellation fees, roaming charges and other industry practices. Among other things, individual and small business consumers will be able to: • Terminate their wireless contracts after two years without cancellation fees, even if they have signed on for a longer term. • Cap extra data charges at $50/ month and international data roaming charges at $100/month to prevent bill shock. • Have their cell phones unlocked after 90 days, or immediately if they

paid for the device in full. • Return their cell phones, within 15 days and specific usage limits, if they are unhappy with their service. • Accept or decline changes to the key terms of a fixed-term contract (i.e., two-year). • Receive a contract that is easy to read and understand. The wireless code will apply to all service providers in Canada. In particular, the code will apply in full to postpaid services (where customers pay a monthly bill after using their services), and where applicable to pre-paid wireless services. “The wireless code is a tool that will empower consumers and help them make informed choices about the service options that best meet their needs. To make the most of this tool, consumers also have a responsibility to educate themselves,” Blais added. The participation of a large number of consumers and the collaboration of the wireless industry will ensure the wireless code’s successful implementation. The CRTC’s public consultation attracted over 5,000 participants, including individual Canadians, who shared their views on an online discussion forum, in writing and at the public hearing held from Feb. 11 to 15.

THE EMC - 40 - Thursday, June 27, 2013



EMC News – The following is the second installment in a series of columns provided by the Algonquins of Ontario. As the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) continue to work toward a modern day treaty, they look forward to a bright future of self-sufficiency, economic stability, and opportunities for current and future generations. Key elements of the current Preliminary Draft Agreement-in-Principle (AIP), released on Dec. 13, 2012 by the AOO, Ontario and Canada, include a capital transfer and land component. These elements are essential to build a long-term sustainable future for the Algonquin people, and respond to present day social, cultural and economic needs. The Preliminary Draft AIP states that Canada and Ontario will transfer $300 million to one or more Algonquin Institutions, which will be Trusts established for the benefit of the Algonquin beneficiaries. These funds will be transferred in three payments over a two-year period starting on the Effective Date of the Final Agreement. Income generated from the capital transfer will make a real and positive difference in the cultural and societal fabric of the Algonquin people by removing barriers for the creation of economic opportunities and social support programs. These funds will also lay a foundation for a rewarding and vibrant future for Algonquin youth by increasing employment opportunities and access to education and training. The Algonquin Institutions that will receive, manage and invest this capital

Director puts own spin on Raspberry clafoutis is tasty and healthy treat latest zombie apocalypse film MOVIE: World War Z STARRING: Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, and Fana Mokoena DIRECTOR: Marc Forester RATING: 14A EMC Entertainment - I’ve discovered that if you’ve seen one zombie apocalypse movie then you’ve pretty much seen them all. Zombies quickly overwhelm mankind threatening humanity with extinction, and the few people left run for their lives desperately trying to survive. World War Z isn’t much different, but they do try to put their own stamp on it. Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family are stuck in traffic in downtown Philadelphia when the world comes apart at the seams. A plague that’s been ravaging the world hits the U.S. hard. Gerry, with some help from his former boss UN Secretary Thierry (Fana Mokoena) barely gets his family out of the country amidst the chaos. It started as a pathogen. It kills its host, and then re-animates it turning the infected into a mindless rage monster whose only purpose is to infect others. It’s turning humanity into zombies and there


isn’t a lot of humanity left. Thierry needs Gerry to go back to work, and find the source of this plague. Gerry is the best investigator the UN has. If anyone can track the source he can, and if they can find the source they might be able to stop the plague. The zombie apocalypse may have been done before, but World War Z tries to put a new spin on it. As the entire world is overrun by zombies, instead of broadening the scope of the film Forester narrows it. The story focuses on Gerry as he follows the clues and tries to solve the mystery of how the plague happened and how to stop it. It makes World War Z feel more like a mystery than a horror movie. I like the focus of the film, and the detective-style story. It adds a whole other level of tension to the zombie film. I like the effects, and I really like the explanation of the


zombies. The thing is the film moves to a very logical conclusion. The ending makes perfect sense for the story, but the most logical ending isn’t always the most exciting or satisfying ending. In truth I found it anti-climactic. Brad Pitt is very good at taking the fear, the terror and the desperation, and making them real for the audience. This film rides on Pitt’s shoulders. It’s his character that drives the film and it’s his performance that makes his character so compelling. Mireille Enos plays Karen Lane, Gerry’s wife. Her scenes are few but riveting. It’s a very believable performance. As Gerry travels across the globe seeking answers he teams up with an Israeli soldier named Segen. It’s an intense role and Daniella Kertesz makes the most of the opportunity. World War Z may not be the war movie you’re expecting, and the ending may be a bit of a letdown, but the film’s unique perspective and focus does give the zombie apocalypse a twist. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Plan now to pay yourself for all retirement years Manage Your Money

Retirement is coming at you faster than you expected – but that’s okay because you expect those years to be fulfilling, brimming with new experiences and activities. And you will enjoy the retirement lifestyle you’ve dreamed about if you plan now to be sure you’ll have the financial resources you’ll need for all your retirement years. And that could be for a lot of years. According to Statistics Canada*, life expectancy for seniors has been on an upward trend over the last 15 years. The foundation of your retirement plan is your retirement income – so you need to know where it will come from and how much it will be. Check these sources: • The federal government offers: o the Canada Pension Plan/ Québec Pension Plan (CPP/QPP) that provides about 25% of your average annual earnings during your working life, up to certain limits.

Packaged tourism experiences now available in Lanark County EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Consumers looking to book travel this summer are about to gain a greater awareness of the regional tourism experiences through the Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlands Tourism Organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (OHTO) summer consumer marketing campaign, Head to the Highlands. The campaign website, www.Headtothe-, and recently released Summer Travel Video Series on YouTube will reach consumers via a multifaceted promotion encompassing social, digital and traditional marketing, and will place getaway packages at the core of its strategy for enticing travellers to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Head to the Highlandsâ&#x20AC;? this summer.

The initiative provides businesses with the opportunity to participate in workshops designed to assist with developing and

marketing tourism packages. Most travel is booked online and packaging has become an effective way for tourism businesses to differentiate themselves from their competition. By expanding an offer to include all of the elements of a memorable travel experience, businesses are more likely to cap-

ture the attention of the consumer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making it easy for consumers to select Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlands as their destination of choice by taking the hassle out of researching, planning and booking travel, explains Nicole WhitSee TOURISM page 43

Generators should not be brought inside the home for any reason.


Shops, in general will charge in the range of $80$120 per axle for this service, bringing a four-wheel total in the $160-$250 range with materials before tax. So what happens if you leave these units alone and skip the maintenance? Generally speaking, if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have this service done when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed (and that should be based on a proper inspection, not necessarily some arbitrary time or mileage point) the brakes linings can stick in their tracks leading to uneven and accelerated brake wear. A complete brake relining usually entails replacing the front and rear brake pads and all four rotors (brake drums are usually a little more substantial in design and will last at least two lining replacements or more). Even with competitively prices parts and labour, these jobs easily hit the $1,000 mark or more if wheel calipers require replacement. So if a routine maintenance costing $250 extends the brake lining life as little as 25 per cent, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a break-even proposition. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only the financial side of the equation. Brakes are one of the most crucial safety systems on any vehicle, and having them in tip-top condition will pay off in a currency far more valuable than money. A large recall is heading this way involving certain 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2002-2007 Liberty SUVs. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the US these vehicles demonstrate a higher than acceptable risk of fires in the event of a rear-end collision due to the placement of the fuel tanks behind the rear axles. While no fires, injuries, or fatalities have been reported in Canada, it is expected that Chrysler LLC will follow the same process that they announced last week for their US customers. For those vehicles, a new trailer-hitch will be installed to improve the protection to the fuel tank in the event of a low-speed impact. If the vehicle already has a hitch, a dealer inspection is still required and if the hitch is found to be inadequate it will be replaced. Chrysler has expanded this action to include 1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees. On this series of vehicles, if an aftermarket hitch is in place and it has any sharp edges, it will be replaced according to the Chryslerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U.S. press release. As this recall is still in the preliminary stages itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely that recall letters will be mailed out or parts will be made available for several

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In a recent column we covered the topic of vehicle maintenance and how stretched-to-the-max automaker recommended schedules werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily the best things for consumers. Car builders in a rush to be as competitive as possible have extended the maintenance intervals on their vehicles in terms of mileage and time. As little as 10 years ago, an every-three-month or 5,000 km routine was pretty much the standard for just about all passenger cars and light trucks. Now, with the increased use of automated service reminder systems and this competitive stance, some automakers have up to 12-month intervals between services with less mention of distance travelled. While there still may be the same number of checkmarked line items at each service interval booklet page, more often than not, only the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;inspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; appears beside the vehicle system with no indication of what if any preventative work should be done to ensure trouble-free driving. I thought it might be helpful to detail a few different systems on an average vehicle to reveal what the benefits are to routine maintenance and what might happen if you just leave things to themselves. Brakes: While lots of advances have been made in various systems on todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicles thanks to electronics and improved materials and assembly techniques, wheel brakes really havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed much in design or operation for well over 50 years. In fact if you account for lighter castings on brake calipers and support frames, lighter rotors or discs, the elimination of asbestos in brake linings, and more exposure to salt and grime thanks to open-spoked wheel rim designs, things have actually gotten stickier (pun intended) for brakes. So it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a surprise when your service consultant comes to you, clipboard in hand, to let you know that having a brake service completed would be a good idea. First things first, what is a brake service? While shops differ in their approach to this, and will always explain exactly what they do, if asked, generally this is what is done on an average front-wheel drive car and what it costs: A technician will remove the brake linings and calipers from their mounts and remove any rust from the brake lining frame tracks, remove any excess rust from the disc or rotor edge, and lubricate the brake caliper slider pins and brake lining tracks. If the rear brakes are a drum type, the drums and brake shoes are removed and the contact points between the shoes and their backing plates are cleaned of rust and/or grime and lubricated and everything is put back together and adjusted properly.
