County’s top cop hangs up holster after 30 years

NEWS

By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – Insp. Gerry Salisbury, detachment commander for the Lanark County OPP, looked nothing like the grizzled 30-year veteran you see in police action movies, narrowing in on his final arrest, with just one day left until retirement. Firstly, his last official day on the job will be in late October, making this past Monday, Aug. 12, his last working day on the job. “I have accomplished every goal I had set when I came here,” said Salisbury, looking even more calm and relaxed than normal, dressed formally, but not in his trademark white police shirt and black pants, sitting on a cozy interview room likely used for children, with stuffed toys in cubbies nearby. Not surprising that he chose this room for one of his exit interviews, of sorts, since, with his ever-present smile, Insp. Gerry Salisbury he is wont to put one at ease. “I shocked everybody and put in my letter,” said Salisbury, who will be turning 51 later this year. “I am leaving on a high note.” The move came shortly after a county police services board association meeting this past June in Mississippi Mills which set out the rules under which Salisbury’s successor would be chosen. But, at that time, Salisbury was not considering leaving the post he had held since 2001. That came later in the summer. “I went through two weeks of sleepless nights to make the best decision for my family,” said Salisbury of the decision he made about a month ago. “There was no ah-ha moment, so to speak… you have to seize the opportunity,” he said, echoing the quote that accompanies all of his work emails: “You can’t change what happened yesterday, but you can affect what happens tomorrow.” Already, across the hall, his temporary replacement, Stephanie Patterson busied herself with paperwork in what would become her office as of 4 p.m. that day. The office was mostly packed away, but Salisbury had been kept busy that day with officers coming in, some on their days off, with families, to say goodbye. “I have a good rapport with most of the officers,” said Salisbury. He will be staying in the area he first moved to about 16 years ago. “We were made to feel very welcome,” he said. Back then, there were only 24 officers in the Perth detachment, but then, “it evolved into a huge detachment. It amazes me…it is a hidden gem of a detachment, (where) people look forward to coming to work,” he said, growing to include seven police services boards, three other municipalities, and three detachments, in Perth, Carleton Place, and Sharbot Lake. “It has gone by like it is nothing,” said Salisbury. “I know that this is going to (tick) off other commanders (but) this is the best detachment in the eastern region, bar none.” As for his own future, while he does admit that golf is certainly in the cards, he plays his cards close to his chest saying that he has “different pokers in the fire.” But he is also ready to see what the future holds in terms of the new leadership for the OPP in Lanark and Frontenac counties. “It’ll be fun to see the new person come in with some new ideas,” he said.

News – The Rideau Regatta is bringing its show on the road, er, water, if you will, to the Perth Basin this week. The bi-annual event will be extending out an extra day early when a number of invited speed boats will be winding their way up the Tay Canal to the basin beside the Crystal Palace tomorrow (Friday, Aug. 16) at 2 p.m., with an OPP marine escort. While Perth’s town crier Brent McLaren may not be able to part the waters like Moses,

he will be on hand to welcome the boaters to the county seat. Many of the boat crews will have photographs of their boats ready as handouts for children. According to an email exchange from Perth town Coun. Jim Graff, one of the event organizers, most of the boats “have been completely restored and are capable of speeds over 100 km/h.” “(This) will be a great opportunity to see these beautiful race boats up close and talk to the drivers and crew,” added Graff.

of the economy.” And there is room for growth. Wynne was impressed with a hemp farm and what the crop could do for farmers and their profit margins. She was also turned on to the potential of maple syrup. “There’s a whole lot of trees not being tapped.” Her government committed $100 million to northern rural and small communities in the last budget. Some of that money could find its way into supporting those emerging sectors. However, as Brian Hudson awaited the premier’s arrival to his family’s sixth generation farm, he was less interested in where government can direct funds to

Local health unit works to raise awareness of bats and rabies virus News – The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit encourages residents to get more information about bats to help protect them from rabies. Bats typically have their babies in June and come August many of the young bats are looking for their own roosting sites. Many bats will roost and hibernate in attics. Bats are nocturnal animals and feed most actively two or three hours following sunset. Bats are efficient insect controllers eating about three times their body weight. Although bats are beneficial, they can carry diseases such as rabies and histoplasmosis, which can affect humans and animals. They may also transmit distemper and mange to household pets. Approximately three per cent of bats carry the rabies virus. The most common signs of rabies in bats are the inability to fly and resting in unusual places such as the ground or floor. It is important to remember many of the bats that get into our homes are healthy bats and are looking for a way out.

home and are absolutely sure that there was no human or animal contact, try to confine the bat to one room by closing the door of the room. Open a window or door to the outside and then turn out the lights; the bat should fly out early in the evening. Be sure to wear gloves and other protective clothing at all times when dealing with a bat. If you are bitten by a bat or if saliva from a bat gets into your eyes, nose, mouth or a wound, wash the affected area thoroughly and get medical attention immediately. Should you find a bat in your home and a bite is difficult/impossible to determine due to the person’s age, or impairment contact your health care provider and the public health unit regarding treatment for rabies. Rabies can be confirmed through a laboratory test of brain tissue from the bat. If the test confirms that the bat was rabid, the health unit, in consultation with your family doctor, can provide rabies treatment.

to contact a pest management company or a wildlife conservation agency for assistance. Rabies can also affect pets; to protect your pet from rabies it is important to vaccinate them. Rabies vaccination is mandatory in Ontario for domestic cats and dogs. The health unit, in partnership with local veterinarians and municipalities, will be holding rabies vaccination clinics on Sept. 11 and 18. The cost is $20 per animal. Please visit our website for more information: www. healthunit.org/rabies.

grow farming then where government can scale back and let farmers do their work free from government intervention. “They have some good programs, like the risk management program,” Hudson said. “But sometimes I think it’s better if they just stay out of the market.” The risk management program shelters farmers from the whims of nature and the marketplace: last year’s drought was enough to bankrupt some if not for government money; others suffer low prices during years with higher-thannormal yields.

R0012257429_0815

News – Premier Kathleen Wynne at a West Carleton farm last week shared some of the specific opportunities and challenges facing rural Ontario. After attending a round table discussion in the Upper Ottawa Valley, Wynne stopped at Panmure Farms to learn how Hudson’s Farm produces corn and other vegetables. She then spoke to a few dozen folks on hand enjoying an outdoor luncheon. Wynne is Ontario’s first female premier, first openly gay leader, and the first premier in a number of decades to also take on the agriculture-and-food portfolio. It was while wearing the last hat that the Liberal Wynne, on the job for just a few months now, launched into a speech touching on unity. “There is not ‘many Ontarians’ as some people like to say. That may be true in terms of various needs and issues,” Wynne said. “But at the end of the day we need each other. There is no urban-rural divide.” For many years the Progressive Conservatives have counted on rural and small town voters for support. Liberals and New Democrats have found their base largely in cities. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Wynne, leading a minority government supported by the NDP, would reach out to rural residents. She doesn’t openly pronounce it as politicking. She said agriculture is the second largest manufacturing sector in the province, contributing $34 billion annually to the economy. “That is an incredibly important part

Wynne defends the program as crucial. But she takes Hudson’s point. “It’s important for me to understand what’s needed. I believe in agriculture, and it’s in the best interests of all Ontarians to understand it,� she said. “We need to find that balance between protecting endangered species and the environment, and how we can get out of the way to let farmers do what they do best.� She said she realizes farmers have been fine stewards of the land for many generations. She admitted there are barriers in place on the government’s side, and that it isn’t always easy to find the right government person to deal with. “There are things we can do about that,� Wynne said.

Fewer farmers Arguably a more difficult challenge to overcome then these specific issues is that of labour shortages. Of the eight or so young people surrounding her, all sporting Hudson’s Farm tee-shirts and working at Panmure Farms for the summer, only one is considering a career remotely close to farming. “We’ve got to figure it out. We still have to eat,� Wynne said, somewhat exasperated. They told her that buying a farm or even inheriting one has upfront costs that are too steep. Others say the 24-7 aspect of the job doesn’t appeal to them. Hudson is also worried that no one will be around to take over he and his brother Bruce’s business. They have 1,000 acres, grow a wide variety of produce in one of the soil-rich pockets of the world, and operate a hog farm of 200 sows they maintain from farrow to finish. Yet none of their many children has shown an abundance of enthusiasm. Hudson takes it in stride at the moment, sounding almost philosophic. “You either like it or you don’t. There’s not much you can do about it,� he said. “If you don’t like it, you won’t last long anyway.� Then there’s the temptation to sell farms to urban developers. That Panmure Farms is located within the City of Ottawa’s borders may come as a surprise to those in Wynne’s neck of the woods in Southern Ontario. But it didn’t take Mayor Jim Watson, also on hand to meet the premier, all that long tout the benefits of rural businesses and lifestyle to the national capital as a whole. “Farming contributes $250 million to the Ottawa economy,� he said. “It’s big business and it’s an important business.� Watson, a former Liberal cabinet minister, was joined by another prominent area Liberal. Federal candidate Karen McCrimmon said Wynne was doing the right thing by visiting communities throughout the province. “Politicians need to get out among the people more. It’s all about the people,� McCrimmon said. “I think what she says about growing the family farm is important. The locavore movement. Let’s eat closer to home.� West Carleton-March Coun. Eli El-Chantiry was out of town during Wynne’s visit. Wynne was invited by the non-partisan Ontario Federation of Agriculture – Arnprior chapter. Throughout the week she also made stops at Rosecamp Farms near Balderson, the Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers in Carleton Place and toured Merrickville.

lower cost. “In the long run it will be cheaper to put up the tab signs than to replace the green and white signs, and they should last longer.� Warden Bill Dobson (Montague reeve) says county council has approved the option to install the new signage for all municipal road intersections in the county road system. “In addition to the public safety aspect, another advantage is this new signage will be much more consistent because it will be provided on all county roads, not just the former provincial highways,� he says. Allan says the new signage has been reviewed and endorsed by the OPP and that it will also assist emergency responders. Provincial guidelines allow for only two tabs added per existing regulation sign, so in cases where more tabs are needed additional signs will be installed closer to the intersection. If intersecting roads have different names, the left road will be listed first. Similarly, if the intersection isn’t aligned, the first encountered road will be listed first. There are about 400 intersections in the 565-kilometre county road system, which will involve some 800 tabs. In accordance with the Ontario Traffic Manual, private roads, which are any roads not maintained by the county or a municipality, will not have warning signs. The signs will not be installed in hamlets and towns because posted speed limits are reduced in those locations and there is less need for advance warning of road names. The project will be completed in phases starting in early August in the Perth area. The second phase will begin about a month later and will focus on the northern part of the county. These two phases should be completed by the end of September and will only cover roads that were not former provincial highways, which will be completed next year. At that point, the old green and white signs will be removed. “This is a ‘made in Lanark County with a bit of Florida’ solution,� Allan says. Submitted by the County of Lanark. R0022242277_0815

News – Lanark County’s public works department is undertaking a new, multi-year signage program that aims to increase public safety through improved directional signage while decreasing visual clutter along roadways. The move comes as the large green and white signs on wooden posts along the former provincial highways downloaded to the county in the 1990s reach the end of their service life. Rather than replace these expensive signs, the county is opting for something new. Steve Allan, public works director, says the idea is based on signage he observed on state highways in Florida. “Down there they have road tabs attached below the yellow diamond intersection warning signs,� he explains. “The tabs indicate the names of roads at upcoming intersections, and because they are attached to the pre-existing warning signs it means additional intersection signage isn’t required, which reduces visual pollution.� He notes that although many drivers today have GPS, having simple, effective directional signage is still important to ensure everyone gets to their desired destinations safely. “This is particularly true on rural county roads, where speed limits can be 80 kilometres per hour,� Allan says. “At these high speeds, providing early notification of intersecting side roads helps drivers to anticipate where traffic may be entering the roadway and to prepare for their own turning movements.� Ontario Ministry of Transportation policy is to provide “advance destination� signs on provincial highways. There are about 100 such signs on County Roads 29, 43, 49 and 511 – the former provincial highways – but the signage isn’t consistent. Allan says the old signs are large, making them vulnerable to damage from high winds, snow and errant vehicles. They are also costly to purchase and install. The new advance road name tabs installed on the pre-existing warning sign posts can be added at a much

Even when faced with adversity, Pollyannna has a secret weapon: a special legacy left to her by her father. Soon the entire town is playing an unusual game that Pollyanna lives by. Inspired by the classic best selling 1913 novel by Eleanor Porter, this musical features rag time tunes and a patriotic medley, taking audiences back to this charming period in America’s history.

A matrimonial carousel at Perth’s Classic Theatre Festival Arts – While writing the second comedy of the Classic Theatre Festival’s 2013 season, playwright Leslie Stevens wrestled with the question many in the 1950s asked: what would happen if someone like Albert Einstein and Marilyn Monroe got together and had a baby? In The Marriage-Go-Round (running to Sept. 1 in Perth) festival veteran Scott Clarkson takes on the role of Professor Paul Delville, who faces marital mayhem when a Swedish colleague’s daughter throws herself at him, asking that he father her baby. Rachel Jones, returning this year after last year’s Festival hit, Mary, Mary, plays Content – the Dean of Women and Delville’s wife – who is continually pursued by a linguistics professor with an abiding passion for her. The twists and turns of these romantic entanglements give the play the “goround” feel of a matrimonial carousel. Opening weekend audiences were very enthusiastic, and it appears the production may inspire a local revival of the cha-cha dance style. Playing the potential lovers who complicate the lives of the otherwise happily married couple are two Toronto-based performers who were bitten early by the performance bug. The Swedish bombshell Katrin Sveg is played by Elisabeth Lagerlöf, who at three-years-old, asked her parents to put her into ballet classes. It was a true spotlight opportunity in the small town of Perth-Andover, New Brunswick (population 900), and until the dance teacher moved away, Lagerlöf thoroughly enjoyed every chance of appearing on stage. After her family moved to Fredericton, she enrolled in Theatre New Brunswick’s youth training program while picking up roles in high school productions of musicals like Hello, Dolly and Grease. Caught by the double cohort and unable to get into her Canadian school of choice, she wound up at the fabled New York City American Musical and Dramatic Academy, a two-year program during which she breathed the sights and sounds of Broadway, especially enjoying a performance of the original production of the musical Little Women. Now based in Toronto, Lagerlöf has performed mostly in film and television, currently appearing in a Temptation Cat Treats commercial in which she lovingly massages a very happy cat.

“I had to massage an Elmo doll at the audition for three minutes,” she recalls of the surreal experience. She has also appeared in the BBC TV series Copper, a slew of short films, and just came off a two-week, sold-out run with the innovative Toronto company Shakespeare BASH’d, which brings the Bard’s plays to a younger audience in offbeat venues. “I often do a lot of crying roles,” she says. “Anyone who is absolutely devastated, I play those types a lot, so I am looking forward to the comic role of Katrin in The Marriage-Go-Round,” she says. Lagerlöf credits her Swedish father, who coached her in developing her accent in preparation for the audition that landed her the role. Kevin Hare grew up as a self-described theatre brat, with both parents involved in the theatre and teaching the arts at BC universities. “From the earliest of ages I could hear my parents practicing their lines in the next room, and I started doing roles when they needed a kid in a show,” he says. “I was immediately hooked, there’s just something about the smell of the grease paint.” With appearances on stages across Canada, he has also done considerable work in TV and film, appearing in everything from Lonesome Dove and Wind At My Back to The West Wing, The Bridge, and Transporter. “You use different acting muscles in film than on stage, so it is great to go from one medium to another, as each one refreshes your ideas about the best way to truthfully play a role,” he says. “I really like the character of Ross Barnett in The Marriage-Go-Round,” he says, noting he can relate to the professor’s conflicts and desires, having grown up with parents who know the academic life. Hare will appear in Lagerlöf’s former hometown of Fredericton this fall in Miracle on 34th Street. He has also performed with and been directed by his father, Carl Hare, including an intense oneman show, Kings, based on The Iliad, as well as a play about playwright Henrik Ibsen’s married life. And in one of those small-world coincidences, Hare’s father directed a 1981 production of the Hugh Leonard play Da, which starred Bernard Behrens, the late father of the Classic Theatre Festival’s Associate Producer,

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

March of Dimes thanks volunteers, donors for campaign support DEAR EDITOR: For more than 60 years March of Dimes has depended on the kindness and generosity of Ontarians who open their doors, heart and wallets during our annual door-to-door campaign. The Ottawa area campaign raised close to $83,000! Once again, this past January and February more than 6,000 canvassers across the province went door-to-door to help raise money for children and adults living with physical disabilities. This year they were also joined by online canvassers. Our volunteers carried on a tradition started more than 60 years ago when “Marching Mothers” went door to door to raise money for a polio cure. Thanks to their efforts, a vaccine was found and Canada was the

first country to be declared polio-free. Today’s March of Dimes provides programs and services that open doors for people with physical disabilities to jobs, recreation, mobility and independence – but we couldn’t do it without our dedicated volunteers. On behalf of March of Dimes, I extend my deepest gratitude to all of our volunteers in the Ottawa area and thank them for helping us raise close to $600,000 in 2013. We couldn’t do without you!

COMMENTARY Protect yourself and pets against rabies Editorial – August signifies many things: the winding down of summer and parents preparing to send kids back to school, but it is also the time when young bats are out and about looking for nesting sites. Recently, the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit encouraged residents of the tri-county area to increase their awareness of the nocturnal creatures, which can carry diseases such as rabies and histoplasmosis, that can be transferred to humans and animals. Household pets aren’t immune either; bats can transmit distemper and mange to them. However, just because bats can carry rabies doesn’t mean that all have the virus. The health unit stated that approximately three per cent of bats carry rabies and usually the ones found in homes are healthy and simply looking to leave. Obtain tips to bat-proof your home from local pest management companies or wildlife conservation agencies. Those who have suffered a bite from a bat should get medical attention so tests can be done to ensure the bat is not rabid. If so, it can be treated. The family pet may not be so lucky. Pet owners also have a duty to safeguard their furry friends against rabies. Rabies vaccinations are mandatory in Ontario for all domestic cats and dogs. To help ensure this happens, the health unit is offering two upcoming rabies vaccination clinics Sept. 11 and 18. For more information on rabies, visit www.healthunit.org/rabies.

Mother was in a fit state for Aunt Lizzie’s visit Lifestyle – Mother was in a state! Aunt Lizzie was on her way from Regina for her annual summer visit. As usual, she gave little notice. A letter had come just days before she was to arrive. That gave little time for Mother to get the house in spic and span order. Father reminded her she had just torn the whole place upside down for the spring cleaning! “That was months ago, Albert. And you know your sister. She can spot a fleck of dust a mile away.” Aunt Lizzie would be given the bed Audrey and I slept in, and that meant we would be sent down to the creton couch in the kitchen, where we would have to sleep foot-to-foot since the couch was so narrow. Heaven forbid that Aunt Lizzie would sleep on a feather mattress, which was what was on Audrey’s and my bed! The only felt mattress was on Mother and Father’s bed in the downstairs bedroom. That meant the brothers had to haul down the one from upstairs, and lug the other one upstairs, which didn’t please them a bit. After all, it was a Saturday, and they had planned on a day of fishing in the Bonnechere...not a day spent lug-

ging mattresses up and down the stairs! But with Aunt Lizzie coming, every hand was put to use. That is, all except Father. He wanted no part of what he considered unnecessary work. He escaped to the barns, telling Mother it was time he did something about that broken door in the cow byre. He would appear only for his meals until Mother’s frantic house cleaning was over! My sister and I also had to give up our little shared washstand in our bedroom. It had to be completely emptied, and washed inside and out. What a carryon, just because Aunt Lizzie was coming from Regina! Getting the food ready was a challenge in itself. Even though Aunt Lizzie was born and bred on that homestead out in Northcote, you would never know she had ever breathed a breath of air from Renfrew County! There would be no salt pork for breakfast, and certainly pork hocks, and mud pout would never see the light of day all the time Aunt Lizzie’s visit lasted! So as soon as the house was cleaned from top to bottom, Mother set to baking.

as pie after pie, Johnny cake, and bread puddings were made and stacked in the ice box. A loaf of store-bought bread, and a real pound of butter replaced what we ate every day of our lives on the farm. Mother, once again, asked Father to please refrain from cooling his tea in his saucer while his sister was here, but her request, I knew, would fall on deaf ears. As far as Father was concerned, he wasn’t about to change his habits just because Aunt Lizzie was coming with her highfalutin airs! Even though Aunt Lizzie caused complete bedlam in our household before and during her visit, I loved when she came from Regina. She always brought me something special.

made of china. Even its little arms and legs were China. I used to think she was the smartest thing to ever step off the train in Renfrew Station. She always wore pure white...a white dress in the latest fashion...and a big wide red leghorn hat, and white gloves that went all the way up to her elbow. And on the outside of those spanking white gloves was a big red glass ring! Tiny red patent-leather shoes completed the outfit. I would marvel at the wealth of our Western cousins. Didn’t her two sons go to university? And didn’t she have a free pass to travel anywhere in the entire country by train. All because Uncle Jack worked for the CPR. And of course, it was Aunt Lizzie who once or twice a year packed a big wood tea box full of clothes no longer suitable for her sons, and send it off to Renfrew on the train. It was the hand-me-down box. Now, once again, Aunt Lizzie was coming to visit. Finally, the house was spotless. We were warned to take our shoes off at the door, not to touch the woodwork which had just been polished, and to make sure ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

our bedrooms were kept spotlessly clean – a tall order for five rambunctious kids. Aunt Lizzie was to arrive in three days. We couldn’t be more ready. Then the phone rang one morning, just after our breakfast. It was the stationmaster in Renfrew. There was a telegram from the West. Mother asked him to read it...no use going all the way into town for bad news, or good news, whatever the case may be. It was from Aunt Lizzie, and she was so sorry, but her trip had to be cancelled, because Uncle Jack was getting an unexpected award from the CPR, and it was on the very weekend she planned on leaving! They had been given a trip to Calgary. Her trip would have to wait until the next summer. Mother asked the stationmaster to read it again. After she hung up the phone, she let out the biggest sigh which I thought could be heard in Douglas! For supper that night Mother hauled out a pie from the ice box, we all had store-bought bread with real butter, we five kids sat at the table with our shoes on, and there sat Father with his tea in his saucer, cooling it off until it was fit to drink. • 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.

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; If you think you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen as many bees lately, you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only one â&#x20AC;&#x201C; their numbers are declining. Bees are essential to the production of our food. According to a University of California, Berkley study, one in three bites of food in the United States are a result of pollination by both wild and domestic bees but disease, parasites, habitat loss, poor over-wintering and chemical use have caused a serious decline in bee populations. The good news is something can be done. A seminar on how to encourage bees back to your property will be held on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Perth Civitan hall (6787 County Road 43). Susan Chan, program manager at Farms at Work, will provide landowners with ways to attract bees by turning unused or marginal land into habitat for these natural pollinators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Susan Chan has to say will be of interest to farmers, gardeners, horticulturalists, and bee-keepers as well as environmentalists, ecologists, and biologists,â&#x20AC;? says event organizer Andy Kerr-Wilson. Chan, who is also author of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Landownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guide to Conserving Native Pollinators in Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, has been working with farmers in the Peterborough area to develop areas to encourage bees back to the farm. For more on these programs, visit farmsatwork.wordpress.com. Her presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session and a round-table discussion involving representatives of interested groups. The seminar will conclude with a visit to a local farm where participants will get to see the plan Chan has created for this operation.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The new Ontario government is investing more than $11 million to support improvements to critical infrastructure in eastern Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural communities. The province is supporting these improvements through the Municipal Infrastructure Strategy, which is providing nearly $90 million over the next three years to help municipalities across the province build and maintain key infrastructure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rural Ontario has unique and diverse infrastructure needs,â&#x20AC;? stated Ontario Minister of Rural Affairs, Jeff Leal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By collaborating and consulting with our local and regional partners, we are providing communities with revitalized critical infrastructure that will create jobs, grow local businesses and keep communities moving.â&#x20AC;? Local projects include: â&#x20AC;˘ Replacing single-lane French Line Bridge with a two-lane bridge in Lanark Highlands Township; â&#x20AC;˘ Replacing the Mississippi River Bridge with a new bridge that will allow for heavy trucks in Lanark County; â&#x20AC;˘ Rehabilitating 9th Line to replace culverts and improve drainage in Beckwith Township; â&#x20AC;˘ Resurfacing and rehabilitating Wiltse Bridge in Rideau Lakes Township; â&#x20AC;˘ Rehabilitating Gananoque Bridge in the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville; and â&#x20AC;˘ Replacing Steenburg Lake North Road Bridge in Limerick Township.

housing starts to account for considerable swings in monthly estimates and obtain a more complete picture of the state of the housing market. In some situations, analyzing only SAAR data can be misleading in some markets, as they are largely driven by the multiples segment of the markets which can be quite variable from one month to the next. The standalone monthly SAAR was 59,547 units in July, down from 60,378 units in June.

THE EMC - 20 - Thursday, August 15, 2013

EMC News – The Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) advises parents to help them prepare children for the family’s move. Involving children in the move will help to lessen everyone’s stress. The summer is the period of peak demand for moving companies. Families move for a great variety of reasons and generally believe that this is the best time to relocate to avoid disrupting their children’s education. Moving can be a major upheaval for children. They may feel anxious about separation from friends, schools and neighborhoods. It’s up to parents to prepare them for moving day, to help reduce their stress and yours. Involving children in the move can help to calm their fears and make the transition more tolerable. Give them as much time as possible to ask questions or express their feelings about the move. Answer all of their questions. Present the move in a positive light. Get them excited about the changes to come. When you arrive in your new community, you may find that organized summer activities are already under way. It may be too late for your children to participate. Neighbourhood children may be away on vacation, making it difficult to make new friends immediately. There may be several weeks before new friends can be made at school. A mid-year move gives school-aged children the chance to connect with new friends. Advance planning can ensure children are involved in the new community quickly. Contact community centres about summer programs and make arrangements for children before the move. Contact schools as soon as possible to find out about registration and orientation programs. Get the children excited about moving. Help young children understand where they and their be-

longings are going. Show them the new neighbourhood – the house, the parks, the school – using online maps. Visit stores or dining spots in the new area before the move so they are already familiar after the move. Plan a special outing or party with your friends and theirs before you move. Help children to create happy memories with best friends and at favourite places. Engage children in preparing for moving day. Have them select a few favourite items to carry with them on their trip. Have them pack a box of “special” items. This box should be the first to be unloaded. Arrange for someone to take care of the children while the movers are packing and loading. Parents will be very busy overseeing the move and may not be attentive to children’s needs. Children will need to adjust to their new setting. Set up the child’s room first so that their space provides some normalcy. If possible, invite old friends to come for a visit so children can show off their home. If you planned early, you probably did your research and have booked an ethical moving and storage company who will provide professional moving and storage services. If not, you may be finding that movers are already committed and are facing using a fly-by-night scam operator who will make promises and fail to deliver. Contact CAM for assistance in finding a good mover – a mover that subscribes to CAM’s code of ethics, meets CAM’s business standards and commits to mediation in the unlikely event of a dispute. Your best protection in reducing your risk to your worldly possessions – and reducing the stress upon you and your family – is to hire a reputable company at the outset.

Danny O’Brien dominates at Brockville speedway for fifth time in 2013 Fetterly Jr. and Darrick Eaton tangled on the backstretch. As the drivers sat in the middle of the race track Eaton’s car was hit hard in the right side forcing him pit side for the night. In the closing laps John Gifford was looking to make it win number two of the year coming from ninth to second but Alex Gagnon was too strong on this night as he became the 10th different winner this year in Street Stock over Gifford, Pascal Racette, Kevin Fetterly Jr., and Danny Mocibob.

The Rookie class is always exciting to watch and Corbin Miller was looking to get back into victory lane as he charged from his fourth starting position to grab the early race lead. Miller would lead the opening six laps as the two early yellows would fly, both for Mike McGonegal as he had problems in turn two. On the restart Miller would try to fend off three-time winner Quincy Roberts. The two drivers have had a great championship battle all year and have

been the class of the field each week. Roberts closed in on Miller with five laps to go in the 15-lap event and the chase was on. With three laps to go, Miller’s car slowed as he cut down a right front tire handing the lead over to Quincy Roberts. Once in front Roberts made it look easy as he scored his second in a row and fourth of the season over Scott McGill, Kurtis Daye, Tyson Slinger and Josh Kirkland. See SPEEDWAY page 27

and would hold the top spot for the next several laps but Ferguson was charging hard after the leader. The top two put on a fantastic show for the fans as both Murphy and Ferguson raced wheel to wheel for the next nine laps but Murphy was able to hold off all challenges to stay at the top of the field. The yellow would fly again just before the halfway point as Chris Herbison and Kurtis Lee came together in turn two. When the green flew Murphy was on the charge as she held onto the lead but Dylan Evoy was the man on the move. Evoy started in 14th and made his way to third by lap 13. Using the bottom side of the race track Evoy was able to take second from Ferguson as laps wound down, and quickly closed in on the leader. With 10 to go Evoy used a power move on the bottom off turn two to take over the top spot over Murphy, Ferguson Barber and Jessica Power. Once in front Evoy was the fastest car on the race track building up a full straightaway lead on the rest of the field. Evoy has struggled at Brockville in 2013 but he put it all together again to claim his 2nd win in a row over Murphy, Steve Barber, Ferguson and Jessica Power. The Rookie Sportsman division was ready to tackle as fast racing surface on this night. Jeremy Coulter and Richard Raison led the field to the start of the 15-lap event with Coulter taking away the top spot. Coulter had been away from the speedway for a couple weeks and it seemed to recharge himself and his team as he pulled away from everybody in the opening laps. Josh Powers brought out the first yellow of the day as he spun in turn three. On the restart Coulter would keep the roll going as he pulled out to another huge lead but the driver charging hard was points leader Chris Bakker. After starting seventh on the grid he would work his way into the top three getting by Richard Raison with just five laps to go. Coulter had everything going his way as he scored his first ever Sportsman win over Tristan Draper, Chris Bakker, Richard Raison and Jamie Young. The Street Stock division has seen nine different winners in 10 races this year and with another quality field another different winner was not out of the question. Travis Andrews took the lead at the start of the 15-lap affair over Selena Simzer and Alex Gagnon. Andrews was charging hard on this night but Gagnon had a fast car and was able to take the lead away on lap six. Just past the halfway point Kevin

Sports – It was another great night of racing at the Brockville Ontario Speedway (BOS) this past Saturday night (Aug. 10) as Trailer Country was on hand for a full program plus the first of back-to-back appearances, for the Ford Dingwall Vintage Series. The 358 Modifieds were set to go as 22 drivers took to the speedway. Dave Austin and Luke Stewart strated on the front row as Stewart took the top spot away into turn one. The yellow flew right away on the opening lap as Tim O’Brien, Adam Moore and April Wilson came together in turn 2. All drivers were able to pull away. On the restart Stewart had a great race car and used the top side of the speedway to pull out to a four-car length advantage but the man on the charge was Danny O’Brien. After two rough weeks O’Brien started in spot number three and quickly made his way to the lead passing Stewart on lap three. Once in front O’Brien made it look easy as he pulled out to a huge lead. Meanwhile behind him Luke Stewart had his hands full with four-time track champion Lee Gill. The two drivers battled hard for the second spot until Gill was able to take it away bringing Pat O’Brien with him. Several mid-race cautions bunched up the field giving Gill and Pat O’Brien a clear shot at the leader. When the green came back out Danny O’Brien continued his dominant performance as Pat O’Brien was able to wrestle the second spot away down the back stretch. Kyle Dingwall, the defending track champion was the biggest mover of the night. After starting 12th he battled with Luke Stewart in the closing laps and would eventually take away the number four position. However despite late cautions and heavy lapped traffic Danny O’Brien was back in fine form taking his brand new car to victory lane for the fifth time this season. Older brother Pat O’Brien settled for second followed by Lee Gill, Kyle Dingwall and Luke Stewart. The Sportsman division was ready for battle on this night as well as Tabatha Murphy and Jonathan Ferguson charged into turn one with Ferguson getting the early advantage. Ferguson would lead the opening three laps until the yellow flew for Aaron Pugh who spun in turn two. On the restart Murphy was able to get a great restart to take over the top spot heading into turns one and two with Ferguson, Steve Barber, Jessica Power and Kenny Polite making up the top five early on. Murphy had a strong race car

Dreaming of the Scottish Highlands and Deacon Brodieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carleton Place, Beckwith Township and Mississippi Mills immigrated to Canada from Scotland in the early 19th century. Shared history creates a strong bond. We feel exceedingly fortunate to be involved in a program which has led to a number of trips to Scotland (selffinanced I hasten to add) where we have built many friendships over the course of two decades. Originally my involvement was through the Carleton Place newspaper where I was editor and publisher for nearly 30 years. In 2006 my experience with Scotland and Comrie led to a direct involvement in the sister city program. R, F and D I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trade the experience for anything. We have enjoyed every one of our many visits to Scotland as well as Comrie and the surrounding Strathearn district in particular. Some people joke about Scotlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weather being dominated by the acronym RF and D (it stands for rain, fog and drizzle). Well, to be honest it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a joke. RF and D is a reality! Last summer was one of the wettest on record in the UK. Meanwhile we were in the midst of a major drought. In 2013 it has been quite the opposite. Much of Scotland has been so dry this year that streams have dried up, river levels are down dramatically and central air conditioning (a rarity in the United Kingdom) has become a prized possession. Odd considering that last year it was so wet flooding occurred across the country. Comrie experienced two serious floods which led to major damage and prompted emergency flood mitigation work which cost more than ÂŁ1 million ($1.6 million CDN.). Ironically the dykes have had nothing to hold back this year. But hey, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control the weather. If you go to Scotland prepared, you will have nothing to worry about. Rule No. 1: Always take a raincoat and a brolly (note that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rained this year). In the normal scheme of things are RF and D.

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

Recently I had a reader from Perth contact me seeking information about Scotland. I will work to get some more details to her. But perhaps some of what I will now touch on will be of assistance? She is seeking advice about places her loved ones might enjoy during a planned visit to Scotland next year. To be honest I wish I could join our student exchange group this weekend but other commitments, including a planned visit to Germany this fall, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow that. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve visited Scotland four times in seven years including participating in the 2010 exchange visit. But I still envy them their trip. Scotland is a dream destination for me. Our students and their chaperones will spend a full day in Edinburgh, the historic capital. I recommend it highly for the history including Edinburgh Castle which looms impressively over the city. At the opposite end of the Royal Mile is Holyrood Palace, the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When people ask me what my favourite travel destinations are, Scotland is always in the top 5. Judging by my email there are a lot of other people out there who love the land of Braveheart, sheep, haggis and Scotch whisky. My wife Kathleen and I have a vested interest in Scotland. Carleton Place, where we live, has been twinned with the picturesque village of Comrie for 21 years. We have been there many times. We are also members of the local Sister City Committee, the organization which oversees the twinning on this side of the Atlantic. In fact I have the privilege of being the current chair of the organization. Currently our most prominent shared activity is a student exchange which began in 2010 and will continue every two or three years, depending on finances. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cheap to airlift half a dozen people to the United Kingdom and vice versa! On Saturday four students and two adult chaperones from Carleton Place will launch the 2013 student exchange program when they fly to Scotland to begin a 10-day visit. The contingent from Scotland returns here for 10 days beginning on the Thanksgiving weekend in October. The students are billeted with host families. They will attend school with their Scottish twins and take part in a number of excursions to points of interest in historic Scotland. The emphasis of the exchange program is education, culture and history. This fall the students from Scotland will enjoy the same program here. Carleton Place has been running a similar exchange with our other sister community, the city of Franklin, Tennessee (near Nashville) since 2006. Overall we are very pleased with the two-pronged program and what has been accomplished to date. Besides the obvious educational and cultural benefits, many of the students who have gone through the program have formed friendships with their twins in Scotland and Tennessee which will no doubt last a lifetime. We are very proud of the program which we finance entirely through various fundraising activities. The exchange does not cost taxpayers a single cent! Last year Kathy and I, along with Carleton Place mayor Wendy LeBlanc and her husband Frank, represented our town at ceremonies held in Comrie to mark the 20th anniversary of the twinning arrangement. It was a very proud moment for all concerned. The linkage with the village in Scotland is based on history. Many of the early settlers of Lanark County, including

residence in Scotland. A tour of the palace and the adjoining Holyrood Abbey ruins are well worth the admission fee. The students will take a hop-on, hop-off bus tour which is the best way to see the major sites of any city in a short time. The Carleton Place group will be in the city during the famous Fringe Festival, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest arts festival. The street entertainment is nothing short of phenomenal! For me a visit to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Fringeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and a stop at famous Deacon Brodieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tavern is a must. The tavern is named after Deacon William Brodie, the man who inspired Edinburgh-born author Robert Louis Stevensonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s novel â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Besides Edinburgh and Scotlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main city Glasgow (also well worth a visit), much of the country is lightly populated. I use the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;countryâ&#x20AC;? because although it is part of the UK most Scots are fiercely independent. Comrie is located in the southern Highlands. A drive through the uplands and mountains is a must. Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view Scotland has thousands of freshwater lochs (lakes) and seemingly each one is more impressive than the last. But if I had to pick one it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be Loch Ness, but rather Loch Tummel near Pitlochry in Perth and Kinross. In 2010 I led our stu-

dent exchange group to Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s View, a high point on the north side of the loch. It is so-named because Queen Victoria visited in 1866. The vista is nothing short of breathtaking! The young people queued for an opportunity to have their photos taken with Loch Tummel in the background. Castles dot the countryside in Scotland. Among my favourites is Stirling Castle, which stands impressively above the city of the same name. We also thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Blair Castle and its beautiful grounds near the village of Blair Atholl in Perthshire. For monarchists Balmoral Castle, Queen Elizabethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer holiday home in Royal Deeside (Aberdeenshire) is a must. So too is hauntingly beautiful Glamis Castle in Angus, birthplace of the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother and her late daughter Princess Margaret. Of course Scotland is the birthplace of golf. Any golfer worthy of the name makes a pilgrimage to the Old Course at St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the North Sea coast. The weather aside â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yes RF and D are normally a constant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Scotland is one of Europeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gems. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confident our student exchange group will return in full agreement with my assessment.

In the Ford Dingwall Vintage Series a pair of former Sportsman drivers led the field to Gary Vandermeerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s green flag as Jason Powers and Dave Wilgosh charged hard into turn one with powers getting the top spot away. Powers began his season in the Sportsman class but made his return to the Vintage divsion and did not look out of place on this night. Both Powers and Wilgosh had fast cars and pulled out to a straightaway on the battle for third which was a great one between Phil Ross, Paul Billings and Denzil Billings Jr. Even with late race yellow flags, Powers would lead all 15 laps for the big win over Wilgosh.

Sharbot Lake man restores Canadian-made 1916 Model T Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Virgil Garrett was born on a farm in eastern Ontario in 1922. He lives today in Sharbot Lake and owns a 1916 Model T Ford purchased in pieces about 50 years ago. He took the car out for an â&#x20AC;&#x153;off roadâ&#x20AC;? spin about three years ago: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It started with a fellow shop instructor who casually mentioned I should own a Model T. After parting with a few dollars, I became the owner of a frame, springs, engine running gear, body, and a few extra parts. I had obtained my driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license on a Model T and felt the necessary parts for restoration could be found somewhere. Cleaning the engine of grease, grime, and dirt, revealed serial number C98603, which matched the same number on the brass nameplate under the dash. My car is a Canadian-made 1916 model. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Extra parts are where you find them: fence corners, stone piles, garages, flea markets, or old barns. Help came from friends, neighbours and even strangers in finding a radiator, round gas tank, coal-oil sidelights, turtle deck, windshield, wheels with wooden felloes (a wooden rim inside the outer metal rim into which spokes fit), and 30x31/2 tires (daughter Anne bought her dad new tires in 2000). I also acquired a 1916 hard cover ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual with detailed information essential in a restoration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I removed dirt with a wire brush, sanded parts to bare metal, undercoated the body, and filled pits which were then re-sanded to a smooth finish so I could paint them. I also welded broken parts, and shaped new

body metal, which was formed, fitted, and fastened together with rivets and wood screws. Wooden parts were also rebuilt, seats reupholstered, back cushions pinned in place, while top and top pads were re-sewn. And if pieces are missing, you make new ones, as I did. The restoration offset the many frustrations I went through to reach the finished product. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have many Model T memories: driving my first car over gravel roads at the fantastic speed of 25 miles an hour, squeezing in like sardines and going to ball games, cranking the engine, checking the gas under the front seat with a wooden stick, watching for cattle that grazed along the roadsides, and tire chains in winter beating a noisy rhythm against the back fenders if they were slightly loose. I was one of the earliest â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mr. Fixits,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; making haywire and fence pliers the tools of the Model T trade.

Studio Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s David Parry must make difficult choices Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This year, Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Studio Theatre opens its 2013-14 season with a sure-fire audience pleaser: Norm Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Old Love, directed by the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic director, David Parry. There is a bit of a love-hate relationship in this combination because Parry has always been outspoken on his views of Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a number of years, it was well known I was not a big fan of Norm Foster,â&#x20AC;? he admits. Then he qualifies his statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not entirely true. I liked his plays, just not the number of them being done.â&#x20AC;? He chuckles and adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A steady diet of either chocolate or roast beef will soon make you turn to the other.â&#x20AC;? Yet in spite of his ambivalence about Foster plays, Old Love will be Parryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second production by this popular Canadian playwright. Last year, Studio Theatre appropriately opened its season with Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Opening Night, a smash hit directed by Parry. It was his first Foster play, and he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I directed it in my own mind despite the fact it was a Norm Foster. But I had seen it and felt it was one of his best plays.â&#x20AC;? Why does he persist in again starting off with a playwright about whom he feels only lukewarm? As artistic director, Parry is mainly responsible for putting together the season of plays the Studio Theatre will present. Choice of plays is one of the main conundrums facing an artistic director. Parry heads up a committee of directors and other interested people who read and suggest plays for a season. He himself comes to the table having read over a dozen plays that he feels would be suitable. He says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need a season that is not all comedies, although they are popular. I think we have a duty to bring other types of plays to the audience. It sounds horribly sort of elitist in some ways, but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking for a play that

entertains, but not only the laughs. It holds your attention, makes you think. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful to have an audience go out of the theatre talking about the play theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just seen. Things they like, or didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like or didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand.â&#x20AC;? So why open with Norm Foster? He laughs and says wryly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I succumbed to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, it makes a good season starter.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; philosophy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very funny play by a playwright whose name our audience will certainly recognize. Still, I would not have considered directing it unless I found the play entertaining and with something to say about the human condition.â&#x20AC;? But with only four actors playing the eight characters that appear on stage, Old Love is a difficult play as well as an entertaining one, presenting a challenge for both actors and director.

ever, is experienced in both disciplines. He spent a number of years with Tara Players in Ottawa as both actor and director, and since he came to Perth five years ago, he has performed in A Month of Sundays, You Say Tomatoes and The Christmas Express, and he has directed The Importance of Being Earnest, The Mousetrap, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be Back Before Midnight, An Inspector Calls, and Opening Night. And he is of course, like all members of Studio Theatre, thrilled with the renovations to the physical theatre, particularly the installation of an elevator. Now, all entertainment here is accessible to everyone, whether mobility challenged or not. Old Love runs Sept. 12, 13, 14, 20 and 21 at 8 p.m. with matinees Sept. 15 and 22 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance, from the Book Nook in Perth,

Candles: If you use candles, make sure you keep them away from all combustible materials. Never leave them unattended and place them out of reach of young children. Candles should be placed in solid, secure candle holders and protected by a glass chimney.

To paint or not to paint: There’s the rub Lifestyle – If there really is anything more inevitable than death and taxes in the automotive world it has to be dents/ scrapes/scratches or any other variety of battle scars that effect our prized wheeled possessions. I always thought car retailers would be doing their customers a favour if they offered to inflict the first chip/ding/pockmark on a new car before it left the lot. After all, it’s bound to happen, and until it does, car owners sweat and fret over every parking spot, driveway maneuver, and fast-food drive-thru cringing if someone even comes close to their pristine beauty. But repairing the imprints of life on the road or in the parking lot doesn’t have to be major event or even cost an arm or a leg or a bumper cover. Do you need to fix it? Small scratches that look terrible when they’re fresh can fade into oblivion with age and their disappearance can be quickened with little effort. If the scratch isn’t deep enough to expose the primer paint coat or bare metal or easily catch your fingernail, try a little regular car-wax before dragging out the spray gun. Avoid coloured or tinted waxes. What’s underneath can matter. If a stone chip or small dig is in the paint of a bumper cover or other exterior non-

ferrous trim, chances are good that there won’t be any rust associated with the damage. If the mark isn’t on a steel panel, or noticeable, leaving it alone might be the best bet. Touch-up paint sticks work best on stone chips and small short scratches. The trick is not to try to completely cover the mark in one application. Apply the paint in several layers, letting each one dry before brushing on the next. A few weeks after the last coat has dried, wipe the mark with a little wax and polish it off and the mark will be leveled off and almost imperceptible. If it’s a bigger mark, but not in the middle of a large panel such as a door or hood, an air brush in the hands of an experienced detailer can avoid a trip to the body shop. Dents that don’t require paint repair can be the easiest and most convenient to fix. Paintless dent removal services R0012255016_0815

are plentiful in our region and other than the major cost savings over a traditional body shop job, and the perks to the environment due to the lack of spray painting, the best feature can be that most of these wrinkle wizards are mobile and will come to your home or office to do the job. They can massage deformed metal back into its original condition in many cases, by means of forming tools applied to the back of the damaged panel. If you’re looking for a reference as to quality, ask the dealership you bought your vehicle from. All auto retailers use this service and will be happy to supply a testimonial to their preferred ding king or queen. As a general rule if the dent has sharp creases or is close to the edge of a body panel, paintless repairs might not be possible, but many of these professionals urge potential clients to forward pictures by email if they’re not sure if the damage is repairable outside of a body shop.

IN MEMORIAM WALKER- In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather Delbert Walker who passed away on August 16, 1983. In tears we watched you fade away, Our hearts were almost broken, You fought so hard to stay. But when we saw you sleeping So peacefully free from pain, We could not wish you back, to suffer that again. Though your smile is gone forever, Your hands we cannot touch, But we have so many memories, Of the one we loved so much, Your memory is our keepsake, From which we’ll never part, God has you in His keeping And we have you in our hearts. So those who have a husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, Cherish them with care, Because you’ll never know the heartache Until you see his empty chair. Sadly missed and forever remembered by wife Doris, daughters Marjorie and Merle, sons Charlie, Harold, Tim and Randy, ten granddaughters, six grandsons, thirteen great grandchildren.

IN MEMORIAM MCLAUCHLAN, David William- In loving memory of our dear son who passed away August 16, 1998. He is gone, but not forgotten, As it dawns another year, In our lonely hours of thinking, Thoughts of you are always near, To us you were so special, What more is there to say... Except to wish with all our hearts that you were here today. They say that time heals everything But we know it isn’t so, Because it hurts as much today, As it did fifteen years ago. Sadly missed and lovingly remembered by Mom and Mike.

MILLAR, Scott John – Dec. 17, 1969 August 16, 2006 Hello there! There are days that without warning your accident seems like yesterday. Seven long years now we have been missing you. December 17 will mark your 44th Birthday and this will be yet another one we miss celebrating with you. We miss sharing our days and nights with you. We miss your jokes and your great sense of humour. We miss talking with you. Memories are great; they are all we have left of you. They remind us of all the wonderful times we shared. At the same time, they let us not forget how much we are missing you. Looking at pictures of you, of us with Wyatt, I realize those moments are captured forever. The sad part is that present and future pictures taken now, Wyatt and I grow older, but without you in them. Just another thing we miss. Sometimes I can’t catch my breath because I miss you so much. I daydream and think what we would be doing at certain times during the day. What our family would be doing together. The feeling of missing you will always be there. We miss your loving hugs that made us feel safe. Scott, you were far too young when you died. We had started our family and were making plans. We were all so happy. Life is so fragile and death takes that wonderful life away forever. We are left behind filled with heartache and missing you always. Love remembers, it will never forget. We miss you with both our hearts. Lots of love, Sharon and Wyatt xxxooo xxxooo

Puppets, plays and parades Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Another successful weekend of puppet ďŹ lled fun was held Aug. 10 and 11 for the annual Puppets Up! International Puppet Festival. Thousands of locals and tourists attended the festival to watch the parade or catch one of the various plays. Above left, these large puppets were easily the biggest participants in the parade, casting long shadows around them.

Arena renovations on target

Blue Wings’ $300,000 project nears completion By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Sports – If you haven’t purchased your season tickets for the Perth Jr. B Blue Wings, you might want to jump on the bandwagon, sooner rather than later. The hype behind the $300,000 renovations is escalating and this week, The Perth Courier got an inside look at what’s been happening over the summer months. Michael McLean, the new owner who admits he may be a “little bit crazy… for hockey…” showed off the new digs where Junior B players will call home this season. Gone is the cramped dressing room downstairs, as the boys will be shifted upstairs, over the players’ benches, to a new three-sectioned area complete with lockers (of the high school variety, for their street clothes and personal belongings); 21 new equipment lockers with each player’s name; a big screen television room where they can watch highlight reels of their games (this will be used as a teaching tool, McLean says), and a ping-pong table; an eightstall shower; and a double urinal/ single toilet washroom. There is also an equipment room, a skate sharpening room, and even a stick room, more natural light and better ventilation. “It’s pretty exciting to see it all come together,” McLean says as he walked around the surface area, showing off the new features – like the area behind the players benches where two highdefinition projection screens will feature clips and sponsors, or even “our own players. “Or we could have a movie night in here,” he says. “This sound system is second to none. We have to compete with the remote and the armchair. These are

the things that stop people from coming out to a hockey game.” If it wasn’t the sound system, then quite possibly, it was the bench seating. That’s been replaced with seats from the home of the Baltimore Orioles’ Camden Yards. “There was a sale on these seats,” McLean says, as the new stadium chairs will be installed this week – some 400 of them. “We didn’t have enough room between the rows (health and safety rules needed one more inch) so we could only put 400 in,” he says. “So every other bench will be chairs.” This is the area where McLean picked up some sponsorship deals with local businesses –and even the Perth Blue Wings alumni – purchasing $10,000 packages for each of the five sections. Looking toward the players’ benches, high above on the second floor, gone are the windows from the old community room, where parties or meetings were held. The rooms above the former Blue Wings dressing room (the equipment room and minor hockey room) have been expanded for minor hockey. The figure skating room will remain status quo, McLean says. “But right there” – he points to the second floor windows over the players’ benches which are now opaque – “I’m not sure what we will be doing with that. We may have a ‘Hall of Fame’ of sorts, or we may feature some of the players.” Heading upstairs, McLean says the players will now enter the building through the back door, closest to the stairs. They will make their way up to the second floor where they will see more old-timers’ hockey photos on display. “I’ve got a lot of old pho-

OMB appeal filed in Lanark Highlands News – A minor variance application for a White Lake property, approved on June 25 by Lanark Highlands’ Council, has now become the subject of an Ontario Municipal Board appeal. The minor variance application on Cedar Code Rd. , in White Lake, was made to allow a change in side yard setbacks from seven metres to three metres (a difference of approximately four metres). The setback was requested by the variance applicants, Anne Fleming and Lorna Bradley, to allow for the construction of a 36 foot by 40 foot attached garage with additional living space on the second floor. At a public meeting held on June 25, the application was brought before the Lanark Highlands Committee of Adjustment where it was approved, with conditions. Several members of the public in opposition to the variance were in attendance at the meeting, while others made written submissions on the subject. One of the issues for approval of the variance was concerns regarding the existing septic system and the impact the development could have on drainage on neighbouring properties. According to the draft minutes from that meeting, the conditions for the approval of the minor variance included the applicant providing the township with “a grading and drainage plan approved by the Township” to “ensure natural drainage patterns on the site are not substantially altered” with resulting additional run-off onto adjacent properties. The applicant was also required to provide a $1,000 security deposit that would be returned “once the approved drainage works were completed to the satisfaction of the township.” At a committee-of-the-whole meeting on Aug. 6, the committee was officially informed of the OMB appeal, which was received at the township while the planning administrator/deputy clerk, Rob Wittkie, was away on vacation. Next in the process would be the township’s response to the application which would then be submitted to the OMB. One of the minor variance applicants, Anne Fleming, said they were “bowled over” when they learned of the appeal being filed with the OMB. Fleming noted that although there had been excavation performed in anticipation of commencing construction, no construction had taken place pending the passage of the appeal time period. “Lanark Highlands council passed the variance unanimously,” Fleming pointed out. “We were kind of bowled over.” Fleming added construction on the garage has now been delayed for somewhere between four and six months, pending the resolution of the OMB appeal. Fleming explained

that both variance applicants (herself and Bradley) were more than willing to comply with the conditions of the variance approval. “We’re prepared to do whatever, we don’t want to cause our neighbours problems,” Fleming said. The delay in the commencement of construction could be the best-case scenario, depending on whether or not the OMB holds a formal hearing on the appeal. A six-month delay would push construction into the winter months where construction would be more difficult. Fleming and Bradley are now in the position of waiting for the process to exhaust itself. Fleming described their future plans as “hurry up and wait, attend the hearing and hope for the best,” adding, “it’s unfortunate this will cost taxpayers so much.” The OMB appellant was unable to be reached by press time.

Student Accommodation A parent’s guide to finding fire-safe accommodation for students attending college or university

Parents have many issues to consider when seeking suitable accommodation for a daughter or son attending college or university . The following information will help to determine if potential accommodation make the grade when it comes to fire safety.

Smoke Alarms

It is the law in Ontario to have working smoke alarms on every storey and outside all sleeping areas. The law applies to single family, semi-detached, townhomes and apartments (including basement apartments), whether owneroccupied or rented. Rooming houses have specific regulations about smoke alarms or fire alarm systems. In addition to smoke alarms within each unit or suite, apartment buildings and student residences operated by the school may also have a building fire alarm system. Make sure the landlord, administrator or super- intendent identifies and explains the fire alarm and detection features in the building and unit.

Carbon Monoxide Alarms

The Ontario Building Code requires carbon monoxide (CO) alarms in new buildings that contain a fuel-fired appliance. However, many existing buildings were con- structed prior to this requirement and may not be equipped with CO alarms. If the building has a fuel-fired (natural gas, oil, propane or wood) appliance, a CO alarm should be installed. Check with the fire department or municipal office to determine if there are by-laws requiring CO alarms.

Fire Separations

Students often find accommodation in older homes that have been converted to apartments or rooming houses. At the time of the conversion, a building permit should have been obtained to ensure that fire safety features such as proper exits and fire separations between units are provided. Ask the owner if the property complies with the Building Code and Fire Code and to explain the fire safety features.

Exits

It is important to consider how people will escape from a room or apartment in an emergency. Every room or apartment requires adequate exits that will permit unobstructed escape from the building. Make sure to ask the landlord or superintendent to identify all of the designated exits. All windows and doors should open fully and easily. Stairways and hallways must not be used for

storage as this can pose serious fire safety hazards. Furniture and other obstacles can physically block exits and may fill hallways or stairways with smoke if they catch fire. This practice must be strictly avoided.

Fire Escape Plans

In a fire emergency, everyone must know what to do and where to go. Large apartment buildings and student residence buildings require a fire safety plan, which informs the occupants about emergency procedures. Ask the building administrator or superintendent to explain the procedures in the fire safety plan. Smaller apartment buildings and houses that have been converted to apartments or lodging rooms may not have a fire safety plan, however it’s a good idea to ensure there are two ways out of the unit. The alternate way out can be a window that can be safely exited in an emergency.

Security

Some property owners install bars on windows as a security measure. While this may seem appealing from a security point of view, it can prevent students from escaping in an emergency situation. Security bars on windows should be equipped with a quick-opening device on the inside so the bars can be removed quickly.

Electrical Safety

Many buildings offering lodging to students are older homes that may not have upgraded wiring. Outlets in bathrooms or within one metre of the kitchen sink should be the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) type. Consider the number and location of electrical outlets in the room or apartment. There should be enough outlets so that appliances such as lamps, computer equipment and stereos can be operated without the use of extension cords. If extension cords can’t be avoided, use multi-outlet power bars that are approved and provide surge protection and a circuit breaker. Make sure that electrical cords of any kind are not concealed under carpets or rugs where they can be easily damaged. Avoid overloaded circuits and octopus wiring.

ANIMAL CONTROL: POUND SERVICES In the interests of safety, public nuisance, and humanness to animals, the Council of the Town of Perth passed the Animal Control By-Law in 2004, which applies within Town boundaries. The by-law affects dogs; cats; kennels; public nuisance issues including noise, bio-waste, and unleashed animals; animals in vehicles; exotic or wild animals. The by-law is available for viewing on the Town’s website at www.perth.ca. If you require animal care and control services, please contact our Animal Control/ByLaw Enforcement Officer, Anita Stuart at 613-259-9998 or Pager: 613-267-9337. Pound Services are also provided by our Animal Control Officer, Anita Stuart. Please contact 613-259-9998 for inquiries relating to animals that have been picked-up in Town or animals that are lost / missing. In addition, those wishing to adopt an animal can also contact Ms. Stuart. Please be a responsible pet owner – have your pet spayed or neutered! When young people attend college or university, they will often be living away from home for the first time. This can be a concern for parents as they try to ensure their children will be safe when they’re not living under the same roof. The following is important fire safety information that every student should know before moving away from home. Parents should discuss these basic fire safety rules with their kids before dropping them off at their new dwelling.

Cooking

Cooking is the number one cause of home fires in Ontario. If the student’s accommodation has cooking facilities, there are some basic fire safety rules they must follow to prevent cooking fires: uA stovetop fire can start in a flash, so stay in the kitchen when something is cooking on the stove. uKeep all combustible items a safe distance away from the stove. This includes tea towels, wooden or plastic spoons and paper towels. uKeep a pot lid near the stove to smother flames if a fire starts in a pot.

Candles

The use of candles is becoming more and more popular, especially among young people. To prevent candle fires: uUse tea lights or votive candles in non-combustible containers as they are generally a safer choice than tapers. uPlace the candles in a location where they can’t be knocked over or come in contact with combustible items. uBlow out all candles before leaving the room or going to bed.

Smoking

Fires caused by smoking can be deadly. Even if they don’t smoke themselves, chances are the student will have friends that do. To prevent smoking fires: uEncourage smokers to go outside. uKeep large, deep ashtrays on hand that will reduce the risk of ashes and cigarette butts falling onto rugs or upholstery. uAllow ashes to cool completely before disposing.

Electrical Equipment

Overloaded circuits and octopus wiring are dangerous electrical hazards that can be avoided. To prevent fires caused by electrical equipment: uUse an approved power bar with a circuit breaker and surge protector to plug in computer and stereo equipment. uAvoid the use of extension cords as permanent wiring. uMake sure electrical cords are not concealed under carpets or rugs where they can be easily damaged.

from anything that can burn, such as paper, bedding, furniture and curtains. uTurn off the space heater before going out or going to bed.

Social Gatherings

Parties are as much a part of student life as attending classes. While most student parties are harmless fun, the consumption of alcohol combined with cooking or smoking can create a serious fire risk. To minimize the risk of fires during or after parties: uAvoid over-crowding. The more people attending the party, the easier it is to lose control of the situation. uEncourage guests to smoke outside. Consider putting up no smoking signs that direct guests to an outside smoking area. uRefrain from burning candles during parties. uThey can easily be knocked over or ignite nearby combustibles, unnoticed.

Smoke alarms

If a fire does occur, it is critical that the dwelling have working smoke alarms to alert occupants as soon as possible. uThe responsibility for smoke alarm installation and maintenance lies with the homeowner or landlord, however it is a good idea for parents to provide their child with a smoke alarm for his or her bedroom. uIt is against the law for tenants to disable or tamper with a smoke alarm. uIf a smoke alarm activates due to steam from the shower or cooking on the stove, oven or toaster, ask the landlord to move the alarm to a different location, or to install a smoke alarm with a pause feature.

Fire Escape Planning

When the smoke alarm sounds, everyone must know what to do and where to go. Encourage students to develop a fire escape plan, keeping the following in mind: uKnow two ways out of every room, if possible. The first way out would be the door, while the alternate escape could be a window that can be exited safely. Make sure all designated escape routes are accessible and free of clutter. uLeave the building as quickly as possible. Once outside, don’t re-enter the building for any reason. uCall 9-1-1 from outside the building using a cell phone or neighbours’ phone. Office of the Fire Marshal © 2006 www.ofm.gov.on.ca

Space Heaters

The central heating systems in older accommodation is often supplemented with space heaters. To prevent heating fires: uKeep the space heater at least one metre away

New signs may be sprouting up in Lanark Highlands thanks to funding from Valley Heartland. Council’s committee-of-the-whole met last week to discuss.

Lanark Highlands signs to get facelift By AMY HOGUE

News – Thanks in part to funding from Valley Heartland, Lanark Highlands roads may see new signage on all entrances to the municipality. At a committee -of-the-whole meeting on Aug. 6, the Committee looked at several similar sign designs to mark the entrances into the Township, with the intent to replace the existing signage last updated in 2001. The proposal to the committee was to allocate $7,500 from a Valley Heartland

grant and $3,000 already designated for updating the municipal signage, for a total budget of $10,500 for the project. The existing signage cost the township $6,000 for 10 signs more than a decade ago. Lanark Highlands chief administrative officer/clerk, Ross Trimble, noted the Valley Heartland funding comes with a catch – it must be spent by sometime in October. Trimble explained to the committee the signs would sit approximately six to six-and-a-half feet off the ground and

could be planted with flowers and other foliage at the bottom. Signs marking the entrances to the township itself would be undertaken first, before moving on to signs marking each individual hamlet within the township. There would also be the possibility of instituting an “adopt a sign” program to help offset costs. After selecting their preferred design, the committee approved a motion to move forward with a Request for Proposals for the project, keeping in mind the October deadline.

Perth Jr. B Blue Wings dressing room undergoes extensive renovations From page P1 help keep the guys honest.”

TRAINING CAMP “Eight more sleeps,” McLean says when asked how he feels about the season starting soon. “That’s when training camp starts.” That was eight more sleeps as of Aug. 8. Camp opens this week in Smiths Falls as 55 prospects will be put through a physical fitness test by Perth’s own Olympian, Nick Tritton, who competed as a judo athlete at the London Olympics last summer. “Nick has a great work ethic and he will be here testing the players on their physical fitness now, before Christmas and just before playoffs,” he says. “This will

In the meantime, the Perth arena will be open for public viewing by Sept. 3 when they hope to be on the ice in town. The team may have an

game, he says. “We’ll also have a pingpong table in here. It’s a universal game. Anyone can play it.” Passing through the “chilling out area” will be an eightstall shower to the right, (towards the ice surface) and a bathroom with two urinals and a toilet, as well as a double sink. “And after every game, and before every practice, we’ll be feeding the boys,” McLean says, as he’s obtained the help from the local groceries stores, Metro and Barnabe’s, as well as Subway, Perth, to lend a hand when it comes to preparing fruits, vegetables and sandwiches and such for the players. “This is a important for the kids… we want that ‘WOW’ factor when they come to play here.”

McLean says he loves Tritton’s mental toughness, and how he keeps his composure under pressure. “Teaching that will benefit the guys,” he says. Another guest for training camp was former Ottawa Senators Matt Carkner. “Matt’s a huge humanitarian and he’s really invested in the community,” he says. But having three to five players from Perth will resonate with the community and ultimately, with ticket sales, he says. Leading the team this year will be one of those Perth boys – Blair Barr. “I’ve researched him; he’s the man for the job,” says McLean. “He’s got two years left and he’s a natural.” Jeremy Wright, the team’s all star goalie, is another Perth boy who is looked at by the owner as a go-to guy this season. Skylar Choffe was another name mentioned by the bench boss. In a deal that happened moments before press time on Tuesday morning, the Blue Wings acquired the rights to rookie all star Christian Buetti. He’s a “good player,” McLean says. “Quality young man. Exactly what we are looking for.” McLean says he’s looking forward to the start of camp this week when they will have enough to field a couple scrimmages – the Blue and White games will be held Saturday and Sunday, both days at 2 p.m. at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre.

Salisbury hangs up his shield From front page to see in this job, to see people excel. I love â&#x20AC;&#x153;That wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a goal, to take over the Perth

A native of Kingston, he graduated from police foundations program at Loyalist College in Belleville. He was stationed with the OPP unit in Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Downsview neighbourhood, patrolling provincial highways like the 401 and 404. In 1985, he had a homecoming of sorts, moving back to Kingston for 11 years, working in fields as diverse as collision reconstruction, criminal investigations, coaching nine probationary officers, and travelling all over the province as a critical incident commander, dealing with the likes of hostage situations. In 1996, he became a sergeant in Kirkland Lake, Ont., before becoming a staff sergeant at the Perth detachment in 1998. He was made an inspector in 2001. While television police procedurals often hone in on the big cases that make or break a cop as he or she looks back on their career, for Salisbury, it is the people he has helped point in the right direction that really stick in his mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To see officers develop has been Photo by DESMOND DEVOY one of the best things to see,â&#x20AC;? he said, beamInsp. Gerry Salisbury is heading into retirement. ing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That has been the most rewarding thing

seeing people do well.â&#x20AC;? When asked what cases he remembers investigating that he is most proud of â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a bad guy brought down, an injustice corrected, a kitten rescued from a tree â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he admits that â&#x20AC;&#x153;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got me stumped. I wish I could answer the question,â&#x20AC;? but then, as he thinks on it further, he returns with an answer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of the searches weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had for missing persons, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most rewarding thing, when we find that personâ&#x20AC;Śwhen you can return someone home to their family,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is the piece de resistance. Sometimes it all works out,â&#x20AC;? he said, though he admitted that, sometimes, the missing person is not brought home alive, but, that too gives the family closure. But regardless of how searches turn out, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be prouder of the officers I work with because they never quitâ&#x20AC;ŚI never asked people to work for me, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve asked them to work with me.â&#x20AC;? The last major initiative he dealt with was merging the OPP with the Perth Police Service last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the last major thing,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Police Serviceâ&#x20AC;Ś(But) weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done everything we said we would do through costing.â&#x20AC;? As with most other retirees, he is looking forward to being able to spend more time with his family, including his son, who recently became a volunteer fire fighter with the Perth fire department, and his daughter, who works at a Maberly restaurant and volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County. As for his wife, â&#x20AC;&#x153;sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the rock behind it, keeping me grounded. Without her, it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been as much fun. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done it without her. Policing is a tough job now, and it always has been.â&#x20AC;? After the interview, outside taking some photographs, ever the police officer, he totes up some clues that literally pass him by about what he will be doing next that day, another welcome delay in packing up his office. Even a rookie fresh from the academy could see by all of the officers and civilian staff, some of whom should be on vacation, walking by with food and treats, that some manner of celebration was in the offing back inside the building to wish him a fond farewell.

Sochi boycott well-meaning, ill advised

E

ditorial – To go or not to go? That is the question, but the answer should be to go. This is not to say that we don’t appreciate that members of the gay and lesbian community want the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia to be boycotted by nations that respect or, at least, tolerate, gay rights, and, in their best hopes, move the games back to Vancouver. While we would love to relive the glory days of the winter of 2010, there is little to no chance of that move being made. We also greatly sympathize with our gay brothers and sisters, and add our voice in protest against the monstrous Russian law that prevents, what it calls, “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations,” to minors, and even penalizes people who express their views in favour of gay rights online or elsewhere in the media. The bill was signed this past June and also prevents people from even discussing gay rights. It essentially outlaws being openly gay, and imposes jail time of up to 15 days for foreigners, followed by deportation, for breaking the law. Already, a number of voices are calling for a well-meaning, but shortsighted boycott of the Russian games based on this monstrous law. Star Trek actor George Takei, who played Lt. Sulu, along with British actor and writer Stephen Fry have called for a boycott. U.S. President Barack Obama has said that he has “no patience” for countries that discriminate against gay people. (However, neither Obama nor British Prime Minister David Cameron support a boycott). Our own Hayley Wickenheiser, captain of Canada’s women’s hockey team, told the CBC that the Olympics is “about acceptance, so it kind of goes against everything that the Olympics are about. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.” As we have seen so often, Russia only cares about Russia. Witness its decision to arm the murderous Assad regime in Syria, and its belligerence at the recent

G8 summit in Northern Ireland, just to name a few. International pressure seems to have little influence within Russia’s borders. Sadly, demonizing a small minority has been a useful scapegoat for Russia’s czars in centuries past, something Russian President Vladimir Putin is finding out to his benefit. The idea of boycotting Olympic games is nothing new. Following the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan on Christmas Day, 1979, western nations decided to boycott the Moscow Olympics in 1980. The Communist Warsaw pact countries followed with a tit-for-tat abstention from the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. The Seoul, South Korea games were boycotted by North Korea and Cuba in 1988. But the only ones hurt by the boycotts, really, were the athletes. Those who had trained for years only to miss out on what, for some, might be their only opportunity to reach the Olympic stage, in 1980. Then, in 1984, with their worthy adversaries cooling their heels thousands of miles behind the Iron Curtain, many western athletes still felt cheated – that the Los Angeles games were somehow not “real” Olympics, that they won only because the bar had been lowered way, way down. Better to go to Russia and show the haters what real athleticism is all about – that, no matter what your race, religion, or sexual preference, sports, like life, should be a test of ability and endurance and heart. What if there had been a boycott of the 1936 Berlin Olympics? Yes, the world would have made a valid point against Hitler’s evil regime. But that likely would not have stopped Hitler’s plans to dominate Europe and beyond. And by going to the Olympics that year, a young African-American named Jesse Owens, the grandson of a slave, through sheer athleticism, buried Hitler’s notion of an Aryan “master race,” by winning four gold medals. We wonder if there is room on the U.S. basketball team for the NBA’s first openly gay player, Jason Collins? That’d show the Kremlin.

Swimming’ with the fishes

ifestyle - Last week

in this space I talked about indoor fishies. This week I’m moving it outside. See, last week we were on “holidays.” Yes, I am going to call it holidays, even though it was…well…let’s just say we lived somewhere else for most of a week. We rented a nice little cottage again this year on Otty Lake for five days. The main reason for staying close to home was because of renovations. Last year and this year, Groom-boy sacrificed part of his vacation (most of it this time) in order to spend the days painting while we troublemakers removed ourselves from the abode. Last year he painted the kids’ bedrooms and the bathroom. This year it was extra important to get rid of local inhabitants because, as mentioned a couple of weeks ago, we had ripped up carpet on the stairs and upper hallway so that we could paint the floors. When you only have one bathroom in the house and it’s upstairs, painting said stairs can be problematic. So, Groom-boy’s priority was to paint all the walking surfaces before we got home. (He did it! And we like it! And the stairs don’t feel slippery at all thanks to the gritty stuff added to the paint!) While all this was going on, I was the Mistress of Worm Bait and Unhooking Sunfish at the cottage. There are a few dozen “Pet Fish” that congregate by the cottage. In the morning they line up under the deck looking for treats, e.g. bread crusts, and they return in the evening for same. For the rest of the day they endure being fed worms (or hot dogs if you run out of worms) and hauled out by hook over and over again. I’m sure I unhooked 70 fish (lots of repeats, un-

doubtedly) during the time we were there. On many of them you can see battle scars across their noses. Fish, apparently, don’t learn. Girlchild always does a little fishing when we go STEPHANIE GRAY cottaging, but this year she really took a shine to it. By the end of our stay she was competently putting worms on the hooks and even taking some of the fish off – depending on their size and where the hook had penetrated. This lack of fear when it came to fishing, however, didn’t transfer to swimming. For the last couple of years the same girl who loves watersnakes and frogs (and her goldfish), did not like swimming with the fishes. I have no idea why. Perhaps she subconsciously associates their voracious appetite for worms, hotdogs and bread with a desire to want to eat people? I thought showing her that I feel as if I am being tickled when sunfish nibble my toes would help, but no. It took a great deal of convincing and counselling to demonstrate that if she paddled out to the raft with the slide on it (which has now been dubbed Slide Island), there would be no fish issues. She finally worked up the courage to go down the slide only after either Boychild or I stationed ourselves at the bottom to “scare away the fish.” Eventually we convinced her that splashing into the water would actually scare them away. I mean, as much as I love treading water for hours and hours, I also wouldn’t mind reading a book on shore. In the end, it appears a truce was reached and Girlchild and the fishes managed to swim in harmony. If only I could say the same about bugs. Don’t even get me started. (Maybe next week.)

Successful rally for CAV, ICROSS organizations in Perth By TERRY O’HEARN

News - Legion organizers for the Annual Fundraiser and Motorcycle Rally of Canadian Army Veteran (CAV) Motorcycle Units and the International Community for the Relief of Suffering and Starvation (ICROSS), are to be commended for the huge success of the event last weekend. Representatives for the Town of Perth, including Mayor John Fenik, were out in support Saturday evening and Sunday for many of the activities and it is hoped that Perth will be the location for future versions of this event. Branch barbecues are now being held every second Friday, starting Aug. 23, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Hot dogs, hamburgers and sausages will be served on the Members’ Lounge patio beside the beautiful Tay. Another Friday event coming up is Ladies Night on Aug. 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. Dave has created something in honour of the new Smurf movie. Ladies’ Auxiliary is holding a garage and bake sale on Saturday, Aug. 17 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. Items other than clothing may be brought to the Legion on Friday, Aug. 16 from 12 noon to 4 p.m. For more information call Mae at 613-259-2257 or Gertie at 613-267-1714. The historic Glen Tay Block Race takes place on Thursday, Aug. 29 at 6 p.m. If you can’t run, please come and support the participants.

In British textbooks, the War of 1812 is commonly referred to as the British-American War, to distinguish it from the British involvement in the Napoleonic Wars which were happening at the same time. To confuse matters further, Napoleon’s campaign against Russia in 1812 is also sometimes referred to as the War of 1812.

To the Editor, Liam and Kiera’s daddy and mommy got plans for building a castle. Now, that is not something that would occur to me, and not to most others, either. What is particularly interesting is that the plans specify that the building materials consist exclusively of cardboard and it is the responsibility of the builders to get their own stock. Given that the end product is measured in dimensions of meters, the builders had to get their hands on very large boxes, which don’t come easily to hand. Luckily for the kids, Dad and Mom had recently received large kitchen appliances shipped in cardboard, so the materials were on site. In fact, I strongly suspect the presence of large chunks of cardboard helped motivate the project from the outset. We grandparents visited recently and were just amazed to see this castle. It is quite something to see what can be built from cardboard. There was a high narrow round tower with a conical roof and a pennant flying from the top. It was the bastion and had been built by skilled tradesmen who knew how to cut long parallel surface cuts so cardboard could be bent to cylindrical shape. There were other round parts attached to the main building at opposite ends and having crenellated battlements. These must be the castle keeps where the owners would be safe during an attack by, say, a band of parents and grandparents. Everything inside was connected by passageways for quick redeployment of forces. Entry was through a drawbridge which could be raised to keep out marauding knights.

After that date the Estate will be distributed having regard only to the claims of which the undersigned shall then have had notice.

DATED at Perth, this 23rd day of July, 2013.

The grandkids were having a wonderful time with it. I must say that it is the perfect abode for kids aged five and three who have active imaginations. Later in the day, Liam proudly showed us a small square pass, of which he had made two. They were for entry to the castle. He

Premier Kathleen Wynne visits Lanark County’s farming communities By AMY HOGUE

News - Crop issues, weather patterns and challenges facing young farmers were among the topics up for discussion during Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne’s whirlwind tour of Lanark County’s agricultural region Tuesday, Aug. 6. Wynne, in her capacity of the Minister of Agriculture, visited several area farms and agricultural centers during her tour, spending her afternoon visiting at Panmure Farms, on Upper Dwyer Hill Road before moving on to the Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers in Carleton Place and finally ending at Janet and Robert Campbell’s egg grading station, Rosecamp Farms. Rosecamp Farms is situated on 360 acres just outside of Balderson and op-

erates an egg production operation with approximately 16,000 laying hens, producing 1,300 dozen eggs daily. During her visit, Wynne took part in a tour of the farm and visited the grading station where she participated in the egg sorting and stacking process. Campbell’s daughter, Stephanie Campbell, was also on site during the visit and is the eighth generation of farmers at Rosecamp Farms. Kelly Baker, press secretary for the Premier, explained that Wynne is looking for more information about what she can do to strengthen the agricultural sector and create jobs. Throughout her tour in the area, she visited with different sectors in the agricultural industry, including beef farmers, maple syrup

producers and hemp growers. Of particular interest to Wynne is the future of farming in Ontario and the next generation of farmers. During her tour, Wynne said she was pleased to meet with several young farmers. “I’ve been on a number of farms today where kids are, and it’s encouraging,” Wynne told Bill Dopson, Lanark County Warden during a discussion at Rosecamp Farms. Following a tour of Rosecamp Farms and the egg grading operation, Wynne participated in a round table discussion with young farmers from the area, to get a better sense of the issues surrounding agriculture in Ontario. Wynne’s day ended with a gala dinner at the Civitan Premier Kathleen Wynne is hard at work at a Lanark County egg farm Club in Perth. while visiting the area last week.

Thank you!!!

An old medal brings man a new beginning By SARAH FRANK sfrank@mykawartha.com

News – Verne Kish learned early in his childhood not to ask questions about his grandfather. A fallen soldier in the First World War, the story of his life was a closed subject. His name wasn’t mentioned at family gatherings and his photograph wasn’t hung on the wall. For Kish, his grandfather was a blank space on a small family tree that only grew smaller when a rocky relationship developed between him and his father. When the Peterborough man was given an old war medal in 2006, he stashed it away in a drawer, figuring it had belonged to his father. He never imagined the tarnished silver keepsake would unravel a side of his family he never knew existed. Now, at 72, he and his wife Collette are busy fielding phone calls and meeting cousins from across the province. All thanks that old medal he stashed away years ago. It all started when Kish woke up to a

phone call early one Saturday morning. He’d sent the medal to Collette’s brother, who works at the military base in Trenton. The medal belonged to his grandfather, named Andrew Kish, he learned. All at once, Kish was bombarded with photographs, marriage certificates, postcards and a list of hundreds of names of people who in some way, are his family. Kish now knows his grandfather, who was 24 when he died of his injuries fighting at Vimy Ridge, is buried in France. His name is inscribed on a cenotaph in Westport where his grandfather grew up. Kish drove out to visit the memorial last year. “As we were driving up, his name just jumped out at me,” he says. “It was incredible.” On a second trip east earlier this month to visit newfound family, Kish was taken to his great grandfather’s gravesite. An inscription to remember Andrew Kish was added to the back of the headstone. He also visited the church where his grandparents married. More than a dozen drove from as far

as Sudbury to gather in Westport. His family, Kish learned, was just as excited to meet him, as he was to meet them. “It’s been a whirlwind,” he says of the last year. “I’ve got family here in Peterborough I never even knew about. They’ve been here this whole time. They all used to sit at Sears and have a coffee in the mornings.” Kish used to do the same. “I could have been sitting right beside them.” Collette says she couldn’t be happier for her husband.“It’s a pleasure; that’s my feeling for him,” she says. “To know that he has family, that’s the best part.” Sifting through a list of names and photographs compiled and sent to him by one of his cousins, Kish’s eyes well up with tears. “It means a lot,” he says. Shortly after he found his grandfather’s name on the Westport cenotaph, he made arrangements to lay a wreath there Photo by LANCE ANDERSON on Remembrance Day this year. “I thought it would finally give me Verne and Collette Kish display the medal that helped lead them to some closure,” he says. “Turns out, it’s a family members they never knew existed. They held a reunion in Westport recently. new beginning.”

First international win for Canada

Saltos trio win silver medal By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

R0012254227_0815

Sports – Six Saltos gymnasts were on the world stage last week as they took part in the Aerobic Gymnastics International Championships in Las Vegas. This time, the girls brought home a silver medal. Coach Louise Miller said it was an impressive routine in the finals by Canada’s 15 to 17-year-old trio of Allison Tolgyesi, Kailey Sweeney and Hannah Adrain, “with more than enough to outscore the Venezuela team for silver, with China earning the gold.” It was “Canada’s first medal ever at an International event in the sport,” said Miller. “An impressive finish to a long day of Finals following their individual qualifying teammates Grace Lockett, Tessa O’Collin and Chloe Lynn.” Lockett, the youngest team member, at age nine, to ever represent Canada internationally, qualified 12th out of 32 competitors in her division (9 to 11-year-olds) for finals in her first competition at this level. “Her high energy routines impressed the judges and got her noticed by many of the other 13 countries competing,” noted the coach. O’Collin and Lynn, second-year veterans to the event, qualified for finals out of more than 50 competitors in their 12-14-year-old category. “They finished 19th and 15th respectively with amazing scores and eye-catching routines,” said Miller. The Saltos athletes competed in the international competition in Las Vegas last week. Team members include Allison Tolgyesi, “Congratulations to all of you, your hard work paid off!” Kailey Sweeney, Hannah Adrain, Tessa O’Collin, Chloe Lynn and Grace Lockett.

Watercraft Ride for Dad triples first yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraising efforts By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; More than $15,000 was raised in the fight against cancer this year during the second annual Watercraft Ride for Dad that took place last month from Rideau Ferry. Rob Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell, co-chair of the event, said he was thrilled that they were able to triple the funds raised over the first year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we had 38 riders raise $5,000 and this year we had 68 raise $15,000,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty great. This event is only two years old and we plan to keep holding it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a branch from the Ride for Dad and now there are other events like ATV rides and this watercraft ride. So thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty incredible.â&#x20AC;? Participants enjoyed a barbecue prior to the

event that took them about four-and-a-half hours to Westport and back to Rideau Ferry. The original Ride for Dad started in 2000. According to the website, it started in Ottawa as a motorcycle ride for prostate cancer research and awareness where some $20,000 was raised for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre. To date, more than $9 million has been raised in 30 cities across Canada. The ride has now branched out to include not just motorcyclistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; events, but also snowmobiles, watercrafts and ATVs. Already plans are under way for the next Rideau Ferry watercraft event to be held on Saturday, July 12, 2014. And if you missed this one, Rockport will be hosting a Watercraft Ride for Dad on the St. Lawrence River, on Saturday, Aug. 24. Dr. Tanya Litwiller is pleased to announce that she has joined Nepean Optometric Clinic in Bells Corners as a full time optometrist. She would like to thank her patients at Heritage Optometric Clinic in Carleton Place for their support over the years and welcomes them and new patients to her new clinic.

Size no issue for this rower who heads to Queen’s University this fall By HOWAIDA SOROUR hsorour@perfprint.ca

Sports – Born in Smiths Falls and still carrying fond memories of Lombardy Public School and particularly Mrs. James, Jonathan Hill is now a national champion rower with none other than the Brentwood men’s eight. The family, including Jon and his two brothers, moved to Edmonton six years ago. The move led to Hill’s acceptance into Brentwood College on Vancouver Island, B.C., a university preparatory school that’s famous for its rowing program. “Since 1972 we have won 86 national high school championships and 12 national junior championships and since 1976 there has been at least one Brentwood alumni on the Canadian Olympic team - that’s 10 Olympics in a row,” said Brian Carr, senior boys rowing coach at Brentwood College. Though Hill had never really rowed before, once he’d tried it at Brentwood, he never looked back. “It was the first thing I found I was good at,” he said. He was more than just good at it. In his first year as a rower he was invited to the Canadian Secondary School National Championships in St. Catharines where he won silver in the junior eight. That first success spurred him to spend the summer in Toronto training with the Don Valley Rowing Club. The following year, he again made it to the

nationals earning a bronze medal with a senior double team. “Jon wanted to improve every practice on and off the water. His strong will to learn and be the best he could be, made him easy to coach,” said Carr. “He has been one of the most honest rowers I have every coached.” At just under 158 pounds, he is also the only lightweight rower on the Brentwood varsity team and sits in seat number five. “Counting from the bow, it’s generally one of the power seats in the boat - five and six are the two power spots,” explained Hill. It’s no mean feat to be the lightest and still seated in one of the power spots of a boat. “As a coach, I will always put the athlete in a seat where I think they will make the boat go the fastest - five seat is usually where you put the big powerhouse rowers but Jon had great rhythm and that helped the flow of the boat. He was one of the best technicians in the boat and would have been better suited in bow seat, however, the boat went faster with him in five seat,” said Carr. It is with that team, and in that seat that Hill and his senior men’s eight brought home gold at the national championships. They also set a record for the 1,000-meter race. “At the 2013 Canadian Scholastic Schools Rowing Championships (CSSRA’s), the weather was atrocious. The

worst I have seen in my 37 year association with these championships,” said Carr. As a result of the poor weather conditions, the regular 2,000-meter races were changed to 1000 meters for the first time in the 67 years of the event according to Carr. “On the Sunday morning of the finals Jon’s crew blasted down the course in a time of 2:45.61 - six seconds faster than the next fastest crew of the day,” said Carr. It also happens to be the fastest a Brentwood crew has managed the 1,000 meter - the last record was around 2:48 according to Carr. The lightest man in Brentwood history to ever hold a power seat, Hill was also named assistant rowing captain for the boathouse in his senior year. “His peers selected him for that position, his passion for the sport and rowing rubbed off on most if not all the athletes in the program,” said Carr. Headed to Queen’s University in Kingston next year, to study Film and Creative Writing, Hill hopes to secure a place on the Queen’s crew. “Jon is stepping out of a high school… and moving into a university lightweight, something which is very difficult to do in his first year,” said Carr. “Knowing how Jon has faced adversity here at Brentwood being a lightweight rowing in heavyweight boats, I am not Only three years rowing and Jonathan Hill, formerly of Smiths Falls, is going to bet against him.” the lightest man to sit in a power seat on a men’s varsity eight.
