News – Acting Inspector Stephanie Patterson has learned a lot that she never hopes she needs to use in her new role. Patterson took over as the acting detachment commander for the Lanark County OPP on Aug. 12, following the announcement of the retirement of outgoing Insp. Gerry Salisbury. But after her time dealing with the tense standoff between First Nations people and developers in Caledonia, she is looking forward to a quieter posting. Several years ago, a tense land dispute erupted between the Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation and developers of suburban housing in southern Ontario. As part of the OPP’s provincial liaison team, born out of the Ipperwash Inquiry, Patterson worked with the First Nations’ people, “building bridges with them,” she said during an interview in her new office at the Perth headquarters of the OPP on Wednesday, Aug. 21. Overall, the tense situation “was challenging, absolutely. There was a lot of dialogue that had to go on. My role was explaining what the OPP’s role was there.” Patterson was quick to point out that she was not alone in Caledonia, and was backed up by “hundreds and hundreds of officers there.” What made her job difficult, in an already tense situation, was the expectation by some that the OPP could simply roll in and solve the problems, to their side’s satisfaction. “It’s not really the OPP’s role to work out he differences in land disputes,” said Patterson. “We were there to make sure that while the government is sorting it out that people stay safe… Nobody has been killed there, thank God, but there has been a lot of heartache for people.” She had had a type of fore-

Two men injured in collision east of Perth News - Officers from the Lanark County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police including Technical Traffic Collision Investigators continue to investigate a two vehicle collision on Highway 43 east of the Town of Perth that happened at about 7:40 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 26. A westbound Pontiac Grand

Prix and eastbound Dodge pickup truck collided on Highway 43 between Spence Road and Evans Road. The 17-year-old, male driver of the Pontiac sustained serious, non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to hospital in Ottawa. Investigation has determined that as a volunteer firefighter, he was responding

to a call for service at the time of the collision. The 32-year-old, male driver of the Dodge sustained minor injuries and was taken to hospital and subsequently released. Highway 43 between Spence Road and Evans Road was closed for several hours and diversions were in place. The investigation is continuing.

shadowing of this dispute during her first posting near the Akwesasne Mohawk First Nation. “I remember hearing the stories from Akwesasne when I was a rookie,” she said. Looking back on Caledonia, it is not the flashpoints she remembers, but the people. “You come away with a lot deeper appreciation of the issues and what people face in those situations,” she said. She found that both non-native Caledonia residents and First Nations members she spoke to were “good people who cared about their communities,” but their actions often did not make the news. “The attention wouldn’t be drawn to people trying to work behind the scenes to make peace,” she said. Patterson was born in Winchester, and was raised in Metcalfe, where she still lives. She attended Osgoode Township High School before heading out to take English Literature at the University of Western Ontario in London. “I always had an inkling about policing,” said Patterson. “You don’t always know what you want to do when you get an arts degree.” However, she has made her readings of Jane Austen and essay writing work for her in her job as the county’s interim top cop. “It has helped me with any oral and written communication skills,” she said. “You’re probably a bit more flamboyant in university with writing…(but in court it’s) just the facts. That’s what the judge wants to hear.” After graduation, she sold insurance, and later helped manage a retirement fund, but, by that time, the call of the police siren had grown too loud, and she was already in the process of applying to the OPP. She was accepted and spent her first 16 weeks at the Ontario Police See OPP page P04

Rick Gales retiring as UCDSB’s superintendent of business News – An administrator responsible for revamping transportation and implementing new financial safeguards within the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) is giving up the balance sheet in favour of a golf bag and a gardener’s hoe. Rick Gales, superintendent of business, is officially stepping down on Sept. 1. The man affectionately known as “Crusty� among his colleagues will be replaced by current comptroller of finance Nancy Barkley. After 24 years working in Ontario’s public education system, Gales rejects any notion of a second career. He is ready to move on to a life of leisure. “I’m planning a trip to Italy and a lot of relaxing, gardening, skiing, canoeing and golfing,� Gales said recently. The 65-year-old father of three came to the area in September 1989 to work as head of finance for the old Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry County Board of Education, following a seven-year stint in finance with St. Boniface School Division Number 4 in Manitoba. Following school board amalgamation in 1998, Gales became one of three chief financial officers with the new Upper Canada District School Board. He was responsible for managing the amalgamation of facilities once controlled by the four predecessor boards. In 2001, he won the job as the first superintendent

of business for the new board, under former director Gino Giannandrea. David K. Thomas, the current director of education for the board, credits Gales for transforming the business department at the UCDSB into a high-performance team. “Rick is a great leader,� Thomas said. “He has vision, but also gets that we have to be accountable to the public so we can provide a worldclass education to our students. He ensured we have the financial safeguards in place so we are seen as accountable and he has put the right people in place to ensure we get the job done.� Among Gales’s accomplishments are: playing a critical role in establishing the new Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) busing consortium; establishing financial assistants in the families of schools to better regulate school finances and ease the burden of school office administrators; the creation of an internal auditor’s position to support the system; and the advancement of occupational health and safety practices within the board – changes which have contributed to reduced absentee and accident rates. Board chair Greg Pietersma says that Gales’ expertise, his wit and his passion for public education will be missed. “Rick is an excellent financial administrator,� said Pietersma. “But what made him so great was not just that

he kept track of our dollars, but that his focus on financial management was always through the lens of what was best for our students. He used our dollars to ensure we de-

liver a world-class education system that helps our graduates succeed.� One of many examples where this proved true was about eight years ago when

board to revamp special education programs. Despite the loss of funding, the board courageously proceeded with its plan to improve special educa-

CAA reminds motorists about back to school road safety News – With school buses about to make a return to roadways across the province as thousands of students get ready to head back to the classroom, CAA North & East Ontario is reminding motorists to study up on road safety. Regardless of where your daily commute takes you, under Ontario law motorists travelling in both directions must come to a complete stop when approaching a school bus that has its upper red lights flashing. Failure to stop for a school bus can be a costly decision. For a first offence, drivers face a fine between $400 and $2,000 and the

loss of six demerit points from their licence. Each subsequent offence brings fines ranging from $1,000 to $4,000, as well as six demerit points and the possibility of serving up to six months in jail. Motorists are also reminded that roadways in designated school zones have a speed limit of 40 km/h. Drivers who exceed this speed limit by 16 to 29 km/h can lose three demerit points and be forced to pay a fine, while those found to be going 50 km/h above the posted speed limit could be faced with the loss of six demerit points, a suspended licence, and a fine of

up to $10,000 under the Safer Roads for a Safer Ontario Act. “At CAA North & East Ontario we want to make certain that all children are safe on their way to and from school, which is why we are urging road users to be mindful of young students and school buses making a return to our local roadways,” said Christina Hlusko, president and chief executive officer of CAA North & East Ontario. As the back to school season gets into full swing, CAA North & East Ontario asks motorists to keep these tips in mind: • Always stop for school buses with flashing red lights

• Watch for school bus and school zone warning signs • Be on the watch for children who might dart out suddenly from between parked vehicles or buildings • Always make eye contact with children who are waiting

to cross the street CAA North & East Ontario provides emergency roadside assistance to members, along with an extensive array of travel and insurance services designed to suit the individual needs,

wants and expectations of our members. Detailed information on the wide range of services and offerings available with CAA North & East Ontario can be found at Submitted by CAA North & East Ontario.

Emerald ash borer found in two areas of Lanark County News – Lanark County is urging residents to take action to slow the spread of the emerald ash borer (EAB), an invasive beetle that aggressively attacks ash trees, following confirmation the insect has been found in two locations within the county. Stephen Clare, regional program officer for the North East Region of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), appeared before the county’s economic development committee of the whole earlier in August to explain the agency’s regulatory role in slowing the spread of the EAB and to provide general information. The EAB does not pose a threat to human health, but the CFIA estimates there are 30 million dead ash trees in the US and Ontario, with an estimated two billion at risk in Canada and no natural predator here. “The EAB has been in Windsor since 2002 and there are no ash trees left there,” Clare said. “North American ash trees are very susceptible. The EAB attacks all except mountain ash, which is not technically an ash tree.” The borer has been found already in all of the municipalities surrounding the county. The CFIA set traps here in early May. When they were checked in July, two sites were positive for EAB: one in Carleton Place and another near Pakenham in Mississippi Mills. In Lanark County, about 30 per cent of the forest cover includes a component of ash trees, with the majority of ash-dominated forests occurring in the southeastern portion of the county. “Now that the EAB has been found here, we want to ensure the public is made aware of ways to slow its spread within the county,” said warden Bill Dobson (Montague reeve). “The main way to do this is to restrict the movement of wood between infested and noninfested areas within our boundaries and beyond since that is a major way the beetle travels.” To slow the spread of the emerald ash borer to new areas, the CFIA uses measures to control the movement of potentially infested materials.

Lanark County public works department has revealed that the emerald ash borer (EAB), shown above, has been found in the county. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency set traps within the county and in July, two sites tested positive for the EAB: one in Carleton Place and another near Pakenham.

found here, the CFIA will move to “regulate” Lanark County. “We found the insect on two properties, so wood products cannot be moved off of those properties without CFIA oversight in order to try to slow the spread,” Clare explained. On April 1, 2014, Lanark County will become part of a large consolidated area in Ontario and Quebec that is regulated in an effort to slow the spread of the pest to unaffected areas. Firewood or any ash products that have been illegally brought in to Lanark County from a federally regulated area could be infested with EAB. “Lanark County residents can help slow the spread of the EAB by buying or cutting their firewood close to home,” said Jonathan Allen, operations manager for Lanark County Public Works. “It’s important to learn what ash is and try not to move it around.” Park and campground opera-

tors, where visitors often bring their own firewood, are urged to be particularly vigilant. At an Aug. 23 public works committee meeting at the Lanark County building in Perth, county councillors expressed concern about the effect of the die-off of ash trees, particularly in some wetland areas and along certain waterways where the dominant species is ash, which provides shade for the waters and habitat for numerous species. “This has the potential to be devastating in Lanark County,” said Brian Anderson, advisory services coordinator with Mississippi Valley Conservation, which provides professional forest-management services to the county. “Our wetlands contain black ash stands, our fence rows have green ash and our community forests have white ash. It will affect every ecosystem we have.”

“You have a different situation that is unique to eastern Ontario,” Clare noted. “Ash has come back on lands that were cleared, and we don’t know what we’re going to see with those lands.” He said local municipalities, particularly urban areas, will have to expect increased costs and hazards related to tree removal and maintenance. Information sessions will be offered to local municipal staff to help them recognize the signs and symptoms of infestation, along with hazard trees, and to identify hot spots. “Municipalities can explore a variety of ways to plan ahead for the demise of our ash tree population,” Anderson said. “In forested areas, the stand can be thinned to reduce the number of ash trees and diseased trees can be removed. Regeneration or replanting efforts can focus on non-ash species.” The EAB was first discovered in Windsor, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan in 2002 and is believed

to have come from eastern Asia in wooden packaging materials in the 1990s. It has since infested most of southwestern Ontario and from Frontenac County east into Quebec. North American trees have little natural resistance to it. The beetle is a hardshelled, winged insect that is about 1 to 1.5 cm long and a striking metallic emerald green colour. The adult beetles emerge through the bark of ash trees from June to August, leaving a small, D-shaped hole. The adults eat foliage and lay eggs in bark crevices over the summer. The larvae tunnel through the bark and begin to eat the sap wood, making S-shaped galleries that get progressively larger as the larvae grow. This cuts off the flow of nutrients and water to the rest of the tree. The larvae spend the winter under the bark, pupate and emerge as adults starting in spring. Signs of EAB infestation in ash trees include seven to 10centimetre cracks in the bark

of young trees, zigzag galleries under the bark of any ash trees, small D-shaped adult exit holes, increased woodpecker activity, die-back in the top half of the crown, or new, green shoots emerging at the base of the tree. Often, by the time the signs are noticed, the beetles have been in the tree for three or four years already. The Eastern Ontario Model Forest organization is taking a lead on advising rural landowners about options they have in light of the arrival of the EAB. For information, visit and check the “Emerald Ash Borer” link on the left margin. The publication “Preparing for Emerald Ash Borer: A Landowner’s Guide to Managing Ash Forests,” can be found on the website.

Reid just doesn’t get importance of food safety DEAR EDITOR: Canadians count on the government to make sure the food we eat is safe, yet when it comes to the inspection system, Lanark-FrontenacLennox and Addington MP Scott Reid and the Conservative government refuse to own up to their own mistakes. An independent review of last year’s XL Foods E. coli outbreak, which led to the largest beef recall in Canadian history, found that the outbreak was entirely preventable. It found that there was not “a strong food safety culture” in the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) at all levels. Staff were inadequately trained and inspection practices weren’t good enough. Our government failed. Many of these problems would have been fixed if the Conservatives had followed through on their commitment to implement the recommendations of the Weatherill Report on the listeriosis contamination at Maple Leaf Foods in 2008, a serious shortcoming they refuse to admit. The Conservatives claim they have been “bolstering” our food inspection system and that they have “added 20 per cent to the personnel.” In fact, documents reveal they plan to cut hundreds of food safety and in-

spection staff at CFIA, which will reduce, not strengthen our food safety system. They also failed to implement the final recommendation of the Weatherill Report, which called for an independent, comprehensive resource audit to ensure that the CFIA had the resources, human and otherwise to carry out its mandate. Even the former president of the CFIA, Carole Swan, said that what they did do was not the audit the Weatherill report called for. That could have prevented many of the problems. This slapdash approach allowed problems at XL Foods to go unchecked for years, allowing the E. coli contamination that caused 18 Canadians to get sick, cost $16 to 27 million to the beef industry and undermined consumer confidence in our food safety system. Will Mr. Reid and the Conservatives actually implement the recommended changes to food inspection to prevent a third major food crisis on their watch? Don’t hold your breath – when I asked in Question Period, they refused to commit to an implementation date. Frank Valeriote, MP Liberal Party of Canada Agriculture Critic

COMMENTARY Let’s help run down cancer Editorial – It’s been 33 years, but the image of the brave Terry Fox running across Canada’s landscape won’t soon be forgotten. Fox may have lost his battle with the unforgiving cancer disease, but his Marathon of Hope continues across Ontario, Canada and globally, to this day. This year marks the 33rd anniversary of the Terry Fox Run, which traditionally takes place the second Sunday following Labour Day. It falls on Sept. 15 in 2013. The month of September is symbolic and chosen by Fox himself. According to the Terry Fox Foundation website ( the month was picked “to reflect when he had to stop running and when Canadians had to start.” Fox lost his battle with cancer on June 28, 1981, just one month shy of his 23rd birthday and the first Terry Fox Run to continue raising funds for cancer research was held Sept. 13 later that year. There are many ways to keep Fox’s dream alive by participating in one (or several) of the Terry Fox Runs throughout the area. In Almonte, participants will gather at the Almonte Arena at 1 p.m., the same time the Lanark run gets underway. Perth’s event will take place at the Conlon Farm Recreation Complex, beginning at 10 a.m., while both the Elgin (Elgin Lions Hall) and Kemptville (Riverside Park) runs kick off at 10 a.m. Most routes are bicycle, wheelchair and rollerblade accessible and available in a variety of distances, from 2K all the way up to 10K.

Being bored something that never paid off for Mary Lifestyle – The day was dragging on, too slowly to suit me. It was late summer, and my Saturday chores had been done hours before. Neither of my best friends could come to play. I was bored beyond belief! I sat on the cement step surrounding the boards at the pump in the middle of the yard, and curled dandelion stems, just the way my sister Audrey had taught me. They were laid out before me like a pile of pale green pencils. From the same cement stoop, I had played Jacks, but without someone to play with, I soon tired of that too. Then I braided long pieces of grass, another talent I learned from sister Audrey. I picked up stones around the pump with my toes. Then I piled them neatly on the platform. Finally, I resorted to letting them plop down the well between the boards, and listened to them drop in the well water below. It was a hot day for late in the summer. My three brothers had gone to the Bonnechere for a swim, and Audrey was visiting her friend Iva on the

next farm. There was nothing for me to do. I had dressed and undressed my dolls too often to count, and even Sport, our old Collie dog wasn’t interested in fetching a stick I threw out from my perch on the platform. I thought of going into the house and telling Mother I was bored, and there was nothing to do. But I knew from past experiences what kind of a reply that would earn me. “Well, get the ball of string out of the cupboard and knit a dishcloth. That will keep you busy for a while.” I hated knitting dishcloths with a passion. I hated knitting with a passion. Once my sister started me on making a scarf. Bright red wool it was. It didn’t take long to see that something was drastically wrong, when what I had knitted was turning into a complete circle. Audrey admitted there was a good possibility I would never be a knitter. I heard her say “hopeless” under her breath. And making dishcloths out of a ball of string that had come in pieces from Briscoe’s General Store was low on my list of fun things to do.

was always able to manage to create what could pass for a dish rag, even though I hated every last stitch I made. Beads of sweat were on my nose, and I looked over at the house with its blinds down, and the kitchen door tightly closed. I knew it would be cooler inside than where I was sitting. But what was I going to do when I went in? The house would be as dark as Mother could make it to keep out the summer heat, and I knew the Findlay Oval would be out. Mother had a talent for working when there was very little light. I pictured her sitting at the table stringing beans, or peeling potatoes, or doing some other kitchen chore that didn’t News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Howaida Sorour, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Kelly Kent, Jennifer Westendorp DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-284-0124 ,ext. 27 CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Judy Michaelis Email: Lee Ann Gilligan Email: Jennifer Coughlin Email:

require open windows. I went to the swing in the grape arbour. It was cooler, but not much, and there sure wasn’t any fun in swinging by myself! I even thought of phoning bad Marguirite to come over. I was desperate, I knew, but not that desperate. And the minutes ticked by. As slow as molasses in January! Well, there was nothing to do but head for the kitchen door. Maybe Mother would raise the blinds and I could look through the new Eaton’s catalogue that had arrived in the mail that week. Or maybe draw with the bits and pieces of chalk mother kept in a Watkin’s Baking Powder tin on the floor in front of the back door that lead upstairs. It was a flat door, just a slab, really, and a perfect spot to draw or write with chalk. The rule was, as soon as we finished, it had to be washed off completely. I opened the back door, and just as I thought, Mother was at the kitchen table, in the dim light, stringADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

ing beans. I shuffled in, letting out a big sigh, trying to gain sympathy from Mother, who could, as Audrey would say, “read any one of us like a book.” “Nothing to do, eh?” I knew right away. I was caught. Mother took her eyes off the beans long enough to nod her head towards the back-to-the wall cupboard. That’s all it took was one nod. I let out a big fact, I sighed all the way to the cupboard. I reached into the basket that always sat on the bottom shelf, and took out the ball of string and the knitting needles sticking out of it. I got no sympathy from Mother as I headed for the kitchen door and the swing, with the string and the knitting needles. Never, ever in the 30s did you say you were bored and there was nothing to do if you were seven-years-old. In fact, all you had to do was look bored, and you knew what your fate was.

Explore the Sundance Artisan Festival this weekend Arts – For years, Sundance Studio Tour has welcomed thousands of patrons throughout the Labour Day weekend. To facilitate growth, allowing more artists to participate, a move to the Fall River Restaurant’s river view location last year was a natural progression. To reflect the expansions, the name has been changed to Sundance Artisan Festival. The festival is an evolution of creative, innovative and traditional artisans, local farm-to-plate cuisine and eclectic toe-tapping music. As always, the theme of Sundance is individual creativity with an element of reclaimed, recycled or natural materials, with impressions in wood, stone, cloth, metal, clay and other media. The original expressions of the returning artists will be complimented by new artists, and there are more than 30 set to participate this year. Along with visual art, patrons will enjoy the natural flavours of handcrafted organic food. Culinary delights include fiery pulled pork, Arctic Char burgers and turkey and cranberry sausages from the Fall River Restaurant, as well as local beer and Ontario wines. As hosts of the Sundance Festival, restaurant owners, Paul and Michele Zammit, recognize the tradition they are carrying forward and hope to expose the diversity of talent our area has to offer. “We have worked to include all the arts and make the Sundance Festival a complete experience for all the senses,” the Zammits said.

Tenant insurance advice for students moving away from home

this week in

perhaps purchasing a tenant’s policy. As each insurance company packages tenant insurance policies differently or calls the products by different names, they all (should) include two kinds of coverage – basic liability coverage and contents coverage. • You could be held responsible if your actions (e.g., leaving the bathtub running) caused damage to your apartment, your neighbours’ apartment(s) or the apartment building itself. Without insurance you would be personally liable for such costs. • You may also be held responsible for personal liability, if someone is injured in your home – even if it is one that you’re renting. They could sue you for any costs associated with the injury. • Landlords have relatively few le-


gal obligations to compensate tenants for damage to, or loss of, their personal possessions. Tenants are responsible for the harm they may cause to any part of the building in which they live or to others who live or visit there. • You should keep an up to date list of your belongings in case of theft, loss or damage. Have your child keep an accurate list of the belongings that he or she takes with them to school. This will make it easier to settle your insurance claim in the event of theft, fire or other risks. • All college and university residences have their own requirements and recommendations for students living on campus, check with your school before you move in.

Your child will likely bring expensive personal items such as electronics, computers, stereo equipment and furniture with them to their new home. Furthermore, they may be liable for any damage to the dwelling they are living in while away at school. Some home insurance policies provide coverage for personal property while away at school up to a certain limit, it’s best to check with your insurance representative on your coverage. Without the protection of home or tenant insurance you and your child are vulnerable to loss of damage to those possessions and other liability risks. Here are a few insurance considerations when your child is moving away from home: • Notify your insurance representative to review available coverages and

Lifestyle – With a new school year and fall season fast approaching, many students will be leaving the family home for college or university and moving in to rental accommodation closer to their post-secondary school. If you’re one of them or a parent of one, Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) wants you to know the importance of protecting your young student with property insurance. “With all the stress that comes with having your child move away for school, the last thing you want to worry about is a financially stressful situation that could have been avoided,” says Ralph Palumbo, IBC’s vice president, Ontario region. “Tenant insurance can protect your child and provide piece of mind to make this transition to school a smooth one.”

Great laughs and heartfelt friendship completes final film of Cornetto trilogy

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It began with Shaun of the Dead, it continued in Hot Fuzz and now the Cornetto ice cream films are a trilogy with The Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s End. The best night of Gary Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (Simon Pegg) life was the night he and his four best friends graduated school. Their goal was to complete The Golden Mile an epic pub crawl through twelve pubs starting at The First Post and ending at The Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s End. While they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finish it that night has stood in Garyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind as perfect. That was 20 odd years ago, and Garyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends have moved on to have careers and lives of their own. Sadly however Gary has not. Gary is pathetically stuck in the past, and

he desperately wants to recapture the magic of that night. He wants to go back with his old friends and finish what they started. For reasons only old friends would understand Andy Knightley (Nick Frost), Steven Prince (Paddy Considine), Oliver Chamberlain (Martin Freeman), and Peter Page (Eddie Marsan) allow Gary to talk them into this crazed reunion. They begin the night with the bitter sweetness of old friend, and the tension of unresolved issues. Fortunately for Gary he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to deal with it because they get attacked by alien robots. Most of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents have been replaced with robot look-aR0012224644_0725

likes and Gary, Andy, Steven, Oliver and Peter have to figure out whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening. They must fight for their lives, their town and even the Earth, but most importantly to Gary they must fight to complete The Golden Mile. The Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s End begins as this funny yet sad comedy about old

friends. Then it moves into this outrageous action-comedy with some of the best bar fights Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen, and Edgar Wright does it so naturally you never think to question it. Your laughing so hard you just get swept away. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s touching, and above all else itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hysterically funny, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this thread of genuine and heartfelt friendship that runs through this absurd battle for survival that elevates The Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s End to the realm of genius. I loved this cast and I loved these characters. Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike, who plays Oliverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister Sam, are fantastic. They

had the perfect mix of sensitivity, emotion, camaraderie and comic timing. They also had bar brawling skills that bordered on the obscene. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are the greatest comic duo of the last ten years. No one has the chemistry they do, are as funny as they are, or able to pull off the kind of outrageous films they do. The Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s End may complete the Cornetto trilogy, but I hope it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean an end to their films. Genius is sometimes a hard term to describe or define. I think The Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s End does a pretty good job of it. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Service dogs They are also working with branches of the Royal Canadian Legion, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; organization, in an effort to raise the money needed to buy 50 service dogs to assist 50 veterans in need. Cousineau says Thai has played a huge role in helping improve his situation. He wants to offer the same benefit to as many others who are in his position as possible. A former tactical co-ordinator on a Sea King helicopter, Cousineau has struggled ever since he participated in the dramatic rescue of two injured American fishermen off the coast of

Newfoundland in 1986. He says his life changed for the better when he received his service dog nearly two years ago. Cousineau has lost weight, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reduced his medication and he says he now deals better with stress and anger. The ex-soldier has an ambitious goal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to raise some $350,000. During his September visit to our region he hopes the generosity of residents will help him realize his financial objective. Details of the activities surrounding Cousineauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local walks will appear in this newspaper closer to the dates involved. He will be in Kemptville Sept. 14, Smiths Falls Sept. 15,

Perth on Sept. 16 and Carleton Place Sept. 17. Brian Comeau, first vice-president of Carleton Place Legion Branch 192, urges people to come out and participate in the local walks Cousineau and Thai will lead. In Carleton Place, for example, he will complete a morning walk of 20 kilometres on Tuesday, Sept. 17. In the afternoon Cousineau will speak to students at Carleton Place High School. The same evening a social event is planned at Branch 192. Similar activities are anticipated in all of the communities where the walk-a-thon is scheduled to touch down! Comeau says the only casualty so far (the walk is in Toronto and Central Ontario this week) is Cousineauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service dog. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thai has been wearing out some days. When that happens Cous (the ex-soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nickname) pushes him in a cart,â&#x20AC;? Comeau laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has no intention of quitting!â&#x20AC;?

about the benefits of such animals.


illnesses such as depression and general anxiety. As officialdom struggles to come to grips with the depth of the problem and the potential consequences for taxpayers, some veterans are starting their own campaigns to both raise awareness about PTSD and raise the funds necessary to assist victims. One such effort will arrive, by foot, in our area next month including stops in Kemptville, Smiths Falls, Perth and Carleton Place. More on that later! In May, I came across a newspaper article which outlined how some Canadian veterans of the war in Afghanistan took their own proactive approach in the battle against PTSD. A group of them came together to make a pilgrimage to the scene of what is still called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming of ageâ&#x20AC;?, the WW I battle of Vimy Ridge. The Canadian soldiers, all of whom are struggling with the effects of posttraumatic stress, visited the gigantic and impressive Canadian National Vimy Memorial. They hoped the carnage from one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most horrific battles could assist them as they try to come to grips with the horrors they experienced in Afghanistan. It was an emotional experience for each of them, according to news accounts. And I can totally understand that. Because in 1995 my wife and I accompanied a group of Eastern Ontario WW II vets and their wives to the Vimy Memorial, which tops the ridge by the same name. Vimy Ridge rises high above the Douai Plain in northwest France. It was easily one of the most meaningful experiences of my life! And I am not a veteran. Little wonder this yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; experience at Vimy was so emotional for the veterans involved. I will however, correct one error that appeared in the newspaper story about that event. The article said the Vimy memorial has the names of the nearly 3,598 Canadians who died in the April 9, 1917 Battle of Vimy Ridge carved into its limestone base. In fact the Canadian National Vimy Memorial was erected in memory of the 11,285 Canadians who were killed in France during WW I and whose final resting place is unknown. It is their names that are etched on the base of the Vimy Memorial. In total more than 66,000 Canadians died during the First World War. The Afghan vets involved in the May pilgrimage to Vimy say the visit helped them make sense of their own war experiences. One army captain told the Canadian Press the fact the majority of Vimy veterans resumed their lives, while no doubt suffering the emotional after effects of the battle, leaves him with renewed hope for his own future. The spring visit took place with support from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wounded Warriors Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; an organization dedicated to raising awareness of mental health issues in the military. Meanwhile individual sufferers are also playing a part in the process. In mid-September a veteran, who says he has lived with PTSD for more than 25 years, will complete a walka-thon from his home in Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia to Ottawa, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. Medric Cousineau is being accompanied by his PTSD service dog Thai. They are currently walking the equivalent of about a half-marathon each day as they aim to raise awareness


Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The impact of war on soldiersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mental health has been a well-recognized but controversial subject for hundreds of years. Seventy years ago this month, during World War II, famed United States General George S. Patton was temporarily relieved of command after slapping not one, but two, hospitalized soldiers in separate incidents during the Sicilian campaign. Both men were psychological casualties although the first man, who Patton called â&#x20AC;&#x153;a cowardâ&#x20AC;? and ordered out of the infirmary, was not only traumatized but extremely ill. It was later learned the teenage private had malaria and was suffering from a high fever when Patton encountered him during a visit to a military hospital on the Mediterranean island. Although the public backlash nearly ended Pattonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career, it is doubtful the gung-ho general ever understood how seriously the horrors of war can affect soldiersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mental health. And yet based on my research, during the Second World War for every battle casualty there were four psychological casualties. Incidents of what is now called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Post Traumatic Stress Disorderâ&#x20AC;? (PTSD) have been documented throughout history from ancient Greece to present. During the American Civil War it was called â&#x20AC;&#x153;soldierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartâ&#x20AC;?. During the First World War it was known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;shell shock.â&#x20AC;? During WW II, despite Pattonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious and dramatic skepticism, it was labeled â&#x20AC;&#x153;war neurosis.â&#x20AC;? In the 1960s and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s, during the Vietnam War, the terminology evolved to what was then described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;combat stress reaction.â&#x20AC;? Now more and more western soldiers, including Canadians, are coming forward to make claims for psychiatric disabilities, most notably PTSD. Not surprisingly governments, including Canadian administrations, have been decidedly cautious in approaching this subject. Understandably perhaps, they fear the financial consequences of applications for compensation filed by current and former military personnel who claim to be suffering from PTSD. The issue is certainly recognized by the Canadian Armed Forces. In 2002, the National Defence and Canadian Forces Ombudsman released a damning report which said our military was failing its sick soldiers. He made a number of recommendations which, in varying degrees, have since been acted upon. As recently as 2012, with Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s combat role in the war in Afghanistan winding down, there were calls for the armed forces to institute a â&#x20AC;&#x153;more responsible treatment programâ&#x20AC;? for Afghan veterans suffering PTSD. According to a 2011 Parliamentary report on PTSD and mental health in the Canadian Forces it was noted that between 25,000 and 35,000 armed forces members were expected to be discharged over the next five years (the period ends in 2016). Of that number it was estimated 2,750 will suffer from a severe form of PTSD.

From Winnipeg to Windsor in a 1938 Ford convertible Lifestyle – In the summer of 1958, when I was 16, my older brother John and I acquired a 1940 Buick Super coupe in our hometown of Leamington, Ontario. I spent my spare time that summer driving around Essex County in search of other old cars. One day, I saw a lavender-coloured (light purple) 1938 Ford convertible with rumble seat on a street in Windsor. I saw it again a few weeks later at Bob Gault’s FINA gas station in nearby Harrow. I never saw the car again until 55 years later, when the two photos you see here turned up, thanks to Bob Taylor of Kingsville, Ontario. I met Bob recently at the Leamington Chrysler dealership when our family car was in for servicing. He had owned a customized 1952 Plymouth convertible in Windsor in the late ‘50s and he said it had been a big hit at the Hi-Ho drive-in restaurant. When he mentioned the Hi-Ho, I immediately remembered the ’38 Ford ragtop I had seen over 50 years ago. With its nonoriginal paint job, it was the type of car that would show up at a drive-in restaurant and so I asked Bob if he remembered seeing it. Imagine my surprise when he told me the car was owned by his brother-inlaw, Chris Smith, and Bob remembers riding in the rumble seat! Chris owned

the car while stationed at an RCAF base in Winnipeg in 1956 and brought it with him when he moved to Windsor. I asked Bob if he had any photos. His sister Pat turned the house upsidedown and finally found the two you see here inside a Jaguar photo album! If this convertible was built in Canada, it had a Windsor factory price of $950 and Toronto-delivered for $1039 (license included). The engine was a flathead V8 with 221 cubic inches with 85 horsepower and a three-speed floor shift transmission. But the story doesn’t end here. Was it bought new in Manitoba? Who painted it lavender and when? Does anyone out there or down here have more photos of it? And – most exciting of all – is the car still around? Stay tuned. I’m always looking for more stories. Email or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

Vehicle vets and shop operators pass along tips to understand your ride Lifestyle - Other than reader letters and emails, I often find sources for topics for this column from dealership service departments and local repair shops. These vehicle vets and shop operators often want to pass along tips to improve customer understanding of a variety of issues which they hope lead to happier and more loyal clients. Here’s a few that have landed on my notepad recently. 1) Keep records. It’s no secret that a certain percentage of vehicle owners have routine maintenance done at a private or regional/national chain store rather than return to their OEM (original equipment manufacturer) dealership. But when it comes to having OEM warranty repairs done, only an authorized dealership can do the work. When it comes to any failure of internal engine or other fluid lubricated components on an older vehicle with high mileage, you can expect that you may have to produce copies of oil change and maintenance receipts. Fortunately just about every size and type of service centre uses some type of invoicing software that should let them reprint any missing invoice, but if all you ever get is a handwritten bill as a receipt, don’t count on it. 2) Why isn’t that covered? Manufacturer warranties only

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

cover defects in original workmanship and materials, not damage caused by outside sources/ forces. The one that always takes car owners for surprise is when a rodent or some other type of critter gets in or under a vehicle and chews through wiring, or hoses, or if a piece of road debris is kicked up by a wheel and impacts some under-carriage component. If a dealership is completing this inspection, they should prepare an estimate for your review as soon as their tech reports that he or she is not dealing with a warrantable situation. 3) Why isn’t that covered II? When a repair is covered under an OEM warranty, everything (parts, labour, fluids, and taxes) should be covered. About the only exceptions are towing invoice limitations (if required) and fluids that would normally been required due to maintenance schedules (e.g. replacing three month old engine oil after repairing an engine oil leak). Diagnostic time is always covered by the carmaker for a warrantable repair.

4) A unique story cropped up in Toronto recently that pointed out some unclear policies by insurance companies. A vehicle that was involved in a collision ended up in storage at a local body-shop. A disagreement developed between the shop and the insurance company over the daily storage fee. The shop wanted $100 per day and the insurance company would only pay $60 per day. The insured in question, no longer owned the vehicle (it was apparently written off in the collision), but was named as plaintiff in a law-suit the insurance company initiated against the shop over the storage fees. The insurance company is firm that their actions are allowed under the driver’s policy but will remove the driver’s name from the suit if asked. The point of the story here is to exercise your right to have your vehicle taken to the shop or storage facility of your choice in the event of a collision. If you don’t have a preference or knowledge of which shop to choose, check with your selling dealer, if they don’t have their own shop, they will always have a recommendation and often they put that information in your glove box with the owner’s documents. From Saturday, Aug. 31 through Sept. 1, the Car & Truck Shows return to the Perth Fair.

There are many new organizers this year, so look for a change-up in format. Cars on Saturday, Aug. 31 and trucks on Sunday, Sept. 1. Fair admission charged for passengers. Further information from the Perth Fair Office – 613267-4104 or the Town of Perth at 613-267-3311. On Sunday the 1st the North Augusta Labour Day Weekend Car Show goes from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the North Augusta Community Hall lot (Mill St. in NA). All classes welcomed, dash plaques to the first 150 registrants, and people’s choice

by philanthropic organizations and sent to Canada in hopes of securing a better future for them. After traveling to Canada by ship and spending time at one of the many receiving homes located in this country, the British Home Child would often travel to their new ‘home’ via train. There is little doubt that many of these littlest of immigrants would have been found waiting in or near a building such as the Aultsville train station for pickup by their new ‘family’. It is for this reason that the Ontario East British Home Child Family, which seeks to preserve

and promote the story of the British Home Child, approached Upper Canada Village to seek permission to house a collection of memorabilia and information on British Home Children in Canada at the Aultsville station. The Aultsville station will be open from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays from Aug. 31 to Sept. 28. For further information on the exhibit, the organization or plans for the second anniversary, British Home Child Day in Ontario event to be held on Sept. 28 at Upper Canada Village, please contact Glenna Walkden at 613543-0421.

Lifestyle – Ontario East British Home Child Family (ODBHCF), in partnership with Upper Canada Village, is pleased to announce that the Aultsville train station will house a British Home Child exhibit on weekends from Aug. 31 to Sept. 28. Between the 1860s and the 1930s, more than 100,000 impoverished children from the British Isles were sent to Canada, many here in the Lanark, Leeds & Grenville region, to work as indentured servants in the homes of farms of this country. These children, ranging in age from infancy to 16 years, were removed from their homes

going strong after 10 years

Downtown Balderson probably has fewer residents than the posted speed limit of 50 kilometres per hour, but it does have Ema Lee Fashions, the largest ladies clothing store in the Ottawa Valley. When Emily Desjardine and Gerry McSweeney bought the old general store in Balderson, situated seven kilometres north of Perth in 2002, there was quite a buzz going around. They were called crazy, told to bulldoze it down and that their business would never succeed. With one year of hard work and persistence, the renovations were complete and their business began. Ten years later Ema Lee Fashions, which is open seven days a week, is still going strong. Well known for its vast selection of ladies apparel, purses, bathing suits and men’s shirts, the demographic area of returning customers and new visitors keeps growing larger and larger. “We have customers from Ottawa, Kingston and Toronto, just to name a

few, but I find it absolutely amazing to think that from this little hamlet, our clothes have travelled all around the world,” Desjardine said. “But our success could not be possible without our dedicated staff and the support from the surrounding areas,” she continued. “It’s nice to hear customers tell us that while visiting Perth, the ladies from the Chamber of Commerce sent them our way.” In 2007, Ema Lee Fashions was named as ‘The best in Canada’ for destination shopping. Customers sum it up by commenting, “If you can’t find anything here, you’re not shopping,” and

“What a hidden treasure.” Another French visitor said “Ca vaut le detour,” (It’s worth the detour.) While visiting Ema Lee Fashions, you can also enjoy breakfast or lunch at the quaint Balderson Café, buy local produce and all-natural ice cream at Balderson Fine Foods or treat yourself to some homemade pies, bread and lemon squares from Anne & Vanessa’s Bake Shop. All of the stores are adjacent to each other. Across the road, you will find Balderson Village Cheese, The Amish Store and Cora’s Gift Shop. There’s plenty to discover in Downtown Balderson!

Perth ready for its close-up as CBC mini-series rolls tape downtown They get a lot done in a day.” Having so many locations close by, within walking distance of each other – the Bank of Montreal, Code’s Mill, Stewart Park, the crosswalk at Gore Street East and Herriot Street, among other locations – were another boon for the producers. “There were so many areas in Perth that we were able to use, like restaurants and banks, that have been willing to have us,” she said. “The town has been really fantastic.”


Entertainment – Perth is set to have a starring role in a sixpart CBC Television mini-series this winter, mostly thanks to the town’s heritage preservation efforts. “It was a huge draw for us. It is astounding how the town has maintained its history,” said Phyllis Platt, producer for the mini-series called The Best Laid Plans, based on author Terry Fallis’ 2007 novel of the same name. “We couldn’t have found a better place to set our story.” Platt spoke on a director’s chair set up outside of the Storm Internet store on Gore Street East on the hot afternoon of Wednesday, Aug. 21, as crews nearby readied sound, lighting, and film to roll for a scene of leading man Jonas Chernick strolling down Perth’s main drag. The sidewalk was a tangle of wires snaking around the potted flowers, as the Edward Jones investment office saw its façade turned into the election offices of a fictional Member of Parliament. The satirical comedy is set in the world of Canadian federal politics, but was filmed in such a way as “to present both Ottawa and its environs in a way that people have not seen before on screen in Canada before.” “Our wonderful (location) scout sent us out here.” While the film crew has indicated that it may return to Perth sometime in September, the team was able to square away quite a few scenes in town during their marathon shooting day, which saw them arrive at 7 a.m. and continue shooting, with breaks in between, until 8 p.m. “It’s quite normal. There are a lot of shots and scenes done in a single day,” explained Platt. “They (the crew) get what they are looking to get and move on.

Welcoming place


Clockwise from top: Lighting and sound men follow the movements of leading man Jonas Chernick as he passes in front of the Bank of Montreal on Gore Street East on Aug. 21; while the next federal election is not scheduled to take place until 2015, here, the façade of the offices of Edward Jones Investments were transformed into re-election headquarters for the MP for the make-believe riding of Cumberland-Prescott, in much the same way that Mike Duffy is the fictional senator from Prince Edward Island, and lastly, producer Phyllis Platt relaxes between takes in her director’s chair in front of the Storm Internet offices in Perth.

Mayor John Fenik visited the shoot, and Casey Buchanan, the town’s economic development coordinator, was on site for most of the shooting. “It was great to have them,” said Platt. “People who live in big cities are not always as welcoming.” Perth residents and visitors seemed to have been quite forgiving of the traffic disruptions on Gore Street, Herriott Street, and North Street, and elsewhere, as the day wore on, as well as limitations on parking in the downtown core, especially on the north side of Gore from town hall to Foster Street. While the next federal election is still two years away, the appetite for satire remains, though Platt is quick to point out that in the show there is “no singling out of an individual party.” But it has a resonance with Canadians who watch it, the echoes of what Ottawa is like…It’s not a cruel satire.” “It’s quite fun in many ways.” The book was written by Terry Fallis, a former Liberal strategist who worked for cabinet ministers at Queen’s Park and on Parliament Hill.

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.


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.


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.

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 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: • A stovetop fire can start in a flash, so stay in the kitchen when something is cooking on the stove. • Keep all combustible items a safe distance away from the stove. This includes tea towels, wooden or plastic spoons and paper towels. • Keep a pot lid near the stove to smother flames if a fire starts in a pot.


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


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: • Encourage smokers to go outside. • Keep large, deep ashtrays on hand that will reduce the risk of ashes and cigarette butts falling onto rugs or upholstery. • Allow 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: • Use an approved power bar with a circuit breaker and surge protector to plug in computer and stereo equipment. • Avoid the use of extension cords as permanent wiring. • Make 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. • Turn 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: • Avoid over-crowding. The more people attending the party, the easier it is to lose control of the situation. • Encourage guests to smoke outside. Consider putting up no smoking signs that direct guests to an outside smoking area. • Refrain from burning candles during parties. • They 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. • The 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. • It is against the law for tenants to disable or tamper with a smoke alarm. • If 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: • Know 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. • Leave the building as quickly as possible. Once outside, don’t re-enter the building for any reason. • Call 9-1-1 from outside the building using a cell phone or neighbours’ phone. Office of the Fire Marshal © 2006

Space Heaters

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

College in Aylmer. After she graduated, she was assigned to a “coach officer,” a mentor of sorts, in Long Sault, near Cornwall. She had a homecoming of sorts when she was posted to Winchester, before being moved to the provincial communications centre in Smiths Falls. After her stint there, she began her time with the liaison team in Caledonia, followed by a posting to Napanee and the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, during the Robertsville Mine protests. She returned to eastern Ontario as a detachment commander in Napanee, essentially the detachment commander’s second in command. She then transferred to the same position back in Long Sault in the United Counties of Stormont, Glengarry, and Dundas. Her final move has been to the East Region headquarters outside of Smiths Falls, where she will return once Salisbury’s replacement

has been found. “They gave me this opportunity and I have gladly accepted,” she said. The deadline for applications for Salisbury’s full-time position have already been closed, and now OPP brass are sifting through the applications, though no date has been set for interviews. With her calm, focused demeanor, and steady but polite gaze, Patterson said she is not intent on making waves, or bringing in major changes, during her time in Salisbury’s old chair. “I want to keep things moving along as it has been, making this transition as smooth as possible,” she said. Already, after so long seeing Salisbury at the head of the local police hierarchy, with a new commander on the horizon, possibly as soon as November, big changes “may happen with the new person… everybody had a different leadership

style.” To enact any major changes now, “would not be fair to the members. Consistency is part of what makes things run smoothly.” Also, she and her officers are too busy with the end of summer rush to try to deal with any new changes. “(It is) a busy time in the policing world, and resources are stretched with people on vacation,” she said. The population of the county increases as cottagers head to their

second home, boaters hit the lakes and rivers, and both clog up the county’s roads. “I expect that the long weekend will be busy,” she said of the Labour Day holiday. She has not been out on patrol yet with her officers, but has attended police services board meetings in Perth and Tay Valley Township. On the personal side of things, at the end of her hour-long com-

mute each day, she has a husband, a lineman for Hydro Ottawa, and two sons, one entering Grade 8, the other entering Grade 11. She enjoys golfing in the summer, curling in the winter, and best of all, “I love going to the rink to watch my boys play hockey,” she said with pride. “My husband is a good guy,” she adds. “He’s the main taxi!” what with the unpredictable hours of police work.

People First of Ontario ready to elect new leader; challenging times ahead By TARA GESNER

Bright future After nearly seven years as leader of People First of Lanark County (PFoLC), Earle bid farewell to the organization on Feb. 1, in order to spend more time with his family and look after his health. “It was a hard decision, but I believe I achieved what I set out to do (locally),” he said. The PFoLC board passed a motion on March 13 to make Earle the organization’s honourary member. Two weeks later, on March 27, the 27-year-old announced he would seek the presidency of PFoC, running in the 2014 election. Owing to his time at PFoLC, Earle has had the privilege to stand for many people, becoming a very important advocate

for vulnerable people and inclusive communities. “Far too often people get judged and bullied,” he said. “This is why I continue to fight each day.” The head office for PFoC is in Winnipeg; however, if elected, Earle would continue to reside in Carleton

Place, travelling back and forth for monthly meetings. PFO past president Richard endorsed Earle for the national organization’s top job. Carleton Place mayor Wendy LeBlanc said Earle has served People First well in the municipality and Lanark

County, as well as at the provincial level. “However, his next step is a big one, and it’s up to us to make sure Kory gets all the support he needs to get elected president,” she continued. “He can count on me, he can count on council.”

“There’s no other candidate more committed or knowledgeable than Kory,” said local councillor Jerry Flynn, a close friend of Earle’s. For more information about PFoLC, call 613-257-7111 or stop by the office, which is located at 355 Moffatt Street in Carleton Place.

News – In October 2014, People First of Ontario (PFO) will elect a new president, guiding the organization through the next three years. The current leader is Kory Earle. Last Wednesday, Aug. 21, Earle held a press conference in Carleton Place to talk about the challenges that lie ahead for PFO. Although the organization that promotes equality for all persons receives financial assistance from People First of Canada (PFoC), other sources of stable funding must be secured. “We must get our ducks in a row and start searching for funding for the long haul.” PFO must have a solid plan, ensuring it can continue to be the voice for vulnerable people. “People First of Ontario has made great strides over the years,” said Earle. PFO is truly thankful to have the support of volunteer advisors; however, many more are needed – people who believe in the organization and its mission. Moreover, local chapters must be supported. “It is extremely important that all members are heard,” said Earle. “After all, this is their movement.” There are a number of important issues that must be dealt with: putting an end to picketing in front of people’s homes, employment and inclusive education, to name a few. “We have done much on the picketing issue, but we need to do more,” said Earle. “We need

to get this bill passed so that people’s lives are no longer affected. This time is now!” Employers in Canada hire only 26 per cent of people with disabilities. “In my view, this is shameful,” said Earle. “This needs to change.” PFO wants individuals with so-called disabilities put in regular classrooms, not segregated from everyone else. Since day one of his advocacy, Earle has been opposed to institutions. “There is no room (in the world) for institutions,” he said. “Each person deserves to be treated equally in the community they live.” As a leader, Earle has made some tough decisions; however, he has enjoyed his time with PFO.

Chef Gita Seaton cooked for Paris and Perth at The Table Gala Aug. 24 Lifestyle – Gita Seaton returned to Perth to be a featured chef at The Table Community Food Centre’s gala, Barns, Farms and Wicked Chefs, on August 24. At 33, she owns a highly acclaimed diner in Montreal’s Mile End district, Nouveau Palais, where there are line-ups out the door most nights. And she has a growing international reputation. Just two years ago Nouveau Palais was a neighbourhood greasy spoon and showing all of its 70 years. Gita cleaned it up (but preserved the traditional diner atmosphere), and created a menu of honest dishes. She serves familiar food, well-balanced, thoughtfully prepared and delicious. She places high value on the quality of her ingredients, preferring locally grown produce. She bicycles to her own plot in a community garden and has

developed relationships with a range of local growers. Gita has also come to be known for organizing “Cookies Unite.” Once a month young line cooks vie to be allowed to create their own menus and cook in Nouveau Palais’ professional kitchen. People come from all over to share good food and soak up the atmosphere. Gita, daughter of Joni Seligman and Jackie Seaton, grew up in Harper. She got her first culinary experience when her mother went on strike and would not return to the kitchen until each of her three children agreed to cook a meal for the family every week. Her next job was at Sunflower Bakery in Perth. But Gita started cooking in earnest when she landed a job in Montreal as sous chef for Medhi Brunet-Benkritly. She cooked at Comerç24 in Barcelona, Spain, where molecular cui-

Give Ottawa its casino cut Editorials – Ottawa’s top doctor says a new casino would be bad for our health. No argument there. A casino invites customers to gamble their hard-earned cash, promising a big payoff if they win. The problem is most people don’t win. For many, dropping a couple hundred dollars at the craps tables and slot machines is simply the price of admission for an enjoyable night out on the town. For some, casinos feed an uncontrollable addiction, encouraging people to gamble away their rent money, retirement savings, or in extreme cases their home. But these addicts are a minority, the cost of doing business. And casinos are big business for both municipalities and the province, taking in hundreds of millions of dollars from residents – an inelastic source of income. Dr. Isra Levy, Ottawa’s chief medical officer of health, who is obviously a realist, realizes the city will be unable to resist the lure of building a casino. As a realist, Levy is recommending the city pump $2 million into community-based gambling treatment services, a steep increase from the $741,000 the Champlain Local Health Integration Network currently receives to fund pro-

grams in Ottawa, a number that hasn’t changed since 2007. He is also recommending the municipality allocate 6.5 per cent of its annual take of casino revenue, which amounts to around $350,000 of what the city currently receives from the Rideau-Carleton Raceway slots, to gambling prevention programs run by Ottawa Public Health. Levy’s recommendations are a reasonable compromise. If the city turns down the opportunity to build a casino, people will simply head across the Ottawa River to gamble at Casino du Lac-Leamy in Gatineau, which is what many residents, including those from Lanark County, already do. Since Lac-Leamy first opened in 1996, millions of local and tourist dollars have travelled out of Ottawa and Ontario to the Gatineau casino. Every last cent lost at the Gatineau casino ends up in Quebec coffers. Simply put, we want our cut. We can continue to do nothing and watch money leave the province and the city, or we can try and keep a slice of one very large pie. If there are going to be casinos, it’s critical that the profits do some good for Ottawans and Ontarians.

Those long commutes Lifestyle - Sometimes it takes a trip to Toronto to remind us we don’t know from traffic jams in Perth. I still contend it’s all relative. I mean, we locals know that, typically, we can cross town in five minutes or less most of the year. In summer, when the tourists arrive, it can take three times longer – and more if you throw a train in the mix. That may not seem like much, but when you expect it’ll take three minutes to get to an appointment and it takes 10, it makes you late. So you grumble about it taking SO LONG to get across town and how you have to plan on adding an extra five minutes to your three-minute commute, etc. And then you make the mistake of doing the grumbling within earshot of people who live in Toronto and they punch you in the head. Okay...they don’t really punch you in the head, but they want to. They might even guffaw and say some bad words. Silly country mouse. Almost every summer we spend a weekend in Toronto visiting friends. More often than not we venture down towards the “big lake,” where we invariably get stuck in traffic. I mean, who with a brain in their head thinks it’s a good idea to drive down Lakeshore Boulevard on a Saturday during the Canadian National Exhibition? Well, to be fair, it really doesn’t matter unless you’re in a hurry, which we were not. Like so many things in life, it is important not to set one’s expectations too high (consider this week’s column, for example.) When it comes to driving in any big, busy city you have to expect it’s going to take a while. Give yourself extra time. I learned the traffic lesson a bazillion years

ago when I was a student and had a summer job at Murphys Point. In May and part of June, it took 20 minutes to travel from my house, through town and out to the park. When STEPHANIE GRAY tourist season kicked in for real, I was only late for work a few times before it (duh) dawned on me I would need to add 10 minutes to my commute to get through town. (It was harsh. I was not a good morning person at that age.) Another important consideration in the travelling-through-traffic equation is the kid factor. Our recent trip to Toronto was one of the better ones on that front. There is nothing quite as stressful as being stuck in traffic with a) a wailing baby b) tired cranky kids who have been stuck in the car too long (this also applies to adults) c) overexcited kids who are fighting and/or randomly shrieking at intervals and/or using strange possessed-by-the-devil voices, d) anyone who desperately needs a bathroom or d) any combination of the above. I remember one long car trip when my brother and I were kids. As we traveled along Lake Ontario we sang “Good things grow-oh-oh, in Lake O-O-O” over and over. It was a play on the Foodland Ontario jingle of the day: “Good things grow-oh-oh, in Ontario.” We thought we were hilarious! I figure the only reason our parents did not toss us out of the car on the trip was because when we were singing, we weren’t fighting. With our kids, we can treat traffic jams as part of the tourist experience when we travel. “Why are we stopped?” the kids ask on the freeway. “This is called a traffic jam,” we explain. Yes, we’re lucky here, even if it takes twice as long to cross town in the summer.

Reader commends council for independent thinking on Blue Communities

To the editor: It’s coming up to backto-school time and we have two grandkids entering grade one. Both will arrive minus a front tooth. Those little baby teeth are about to be pushed out unceremoniously and replaced by grown-up teeth. We haven’t dealt with this for more than 40 years, and we expect the tooth fairy has had to modify her ways considerably in the interim. We know that the exchange rate on teeth has risen markedly, but what is it today? Is there a flat rate or has the tooth fairy introduced a graduated scale? Are front teeth more valuable than molars, and is there a premium for a first tooth? With kids going back to school they will be able to compare notes with classmates, which could really put the tooth fairy on the spot. Just imagine the con-

sequences if a little tyke brings a displaced tooth and the tooth fairy’s reward into class for show and tell. Classmates could realize they got shortchanged! We have heard that the tooth fairy has been known to correspond with a child, pointing out that its room was so untidy that the tooth could not be found, and offering to return the next day to see if there was enough improvement to find the tooth. Would the tooth fairy actually do such a thing? Is the standard spot for placing the tooth still under the pillow, as it was in the old days? We know you and your readers have very broad experience. If you or they could help us out with all these questions we would be much obliged. Doug Trigg Perth

Purchasing bottled water does not impact much-needed investments in Canada’s water and sewer infrastructure. Canadians pay lo-


CUPE national president Paul Moist acknowledged this in recent correspondence in the Owen Sound Sun Times, Toronto Sun and Waterloo Chronicle when he wrote, “Nestlé spokesperson John Challinor is partly right about CUPE’s joint work with the Council of Canadians on bottled water. The Blue Communities Project is absolutely a political campaign. What could be more appropriate than grassroots activism that invites our elected local representatives to have a democratic, public debate about how scarce municipal tax dollars should be spent.” We agree with the council and CUPE that water is a human right. And given that Canada has a $31 billion water and sewer infrastructure deficit resulting in, amongst other things, more than 1,500 boil-water orders across the country last year, we also support continued investment in our municipal systems. Where we draw the line with the council and CUPE is their misguided and misleading attempts to ban the sale of bottled water in public facilities. Bottled water does not


To the Editor: I read with interest the article that appeared in the Aug. 23, 2013, edition of the Perth Courier entitled, “Council hears youth’s proposal to adopt Blue Communities project.” Perth council has referred the Blue Communities Project resolution put forward by the Council of Canadians and the Canadian Union of Public Employees to staff for a report. In taking the cautious approach that it did, it appears that council fully recognizes this resolution for what it is: a Trojan horse-like treatise developed solely to encourage Canadian municipalities to ban the sale of bottled water in their facilities under the guise of human rights and infrastructure management. While Kingston student Robyn Hamlyn is to be commended for her commitment to environmental sustainability, the Blue Communities Project is not an environmental initiative – it’s a political campaign being waged by CUPE against the Canadian beverage industry and its 13,000 employees across Canada.

Top: Street scene extras Joshua Barbeau and Laura Mayo are not actually a couple, having just met that morning, but as Ottawa-based actors, they sure had a lot of people fooled.

His novel won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour, as well as the 2011 Canada Reads competition, beating out books by Will Ferguson and Douglas Coupland. While the show is billed as an irreverent look at politics it also, interestingly, has great reverence, if you will, for Ottawa and our Canadian way of life. In fact, perhaps tempting premise overload a bit, Platt sees her production as more than just a mini-series. “(It is) a celebration of life and fun and who we are and where our government lives,” she said with a smile. For Platt, one of the show’s greatest honours has been the ability to actually film in the corridors of power on Parliament Hill. “No one has been granted permission to film inside of the House of Commons since 9/11,” she said, though earlier Canadian television movies, like the 2002 CBC bio-pic of Pierre Trudeau, did film on the hill before the attacks. In order to get permission to film in and around the House of Commons, the producers had to “make sure that all of the cast and crew could pass through the eye of that needle,” of security. After weeks of meetings, however, “it became clear that they were willing to let us in. It was amazing.” For Platt, she sees it as a unique opportunity to “show Canadians who will never have the opportunity to get to Ottawa to see their government, and how beautiful Ottawa is. It’s like inviting Canadians in,” to Ottawa, and the national capital region. “We hope to be able to convey that. We’ve shot some amazing footage.” Street scene extras Joshua Barbeau and Laura Mayo are not actually a couple, having just met that morning, but as Ottawa-based actors, they sure had a lot of people fooled. Here, Barbeau clowns around between takes in front of the campaign office of fictional Eric Cameron, MP for the fictional riding of Cumberland-Prescott. Has anyone told Scott Reid that there’s a new MP in town?

Local community rallies behind teenage car crash victim â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just going to make it happen,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are small (as a school) but we are mighty.â&#x20AC;? Martin-Lunaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outpatient care has been transferred to the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa, and she faces more surgeries in the future. The road has been a hard one, but already, there are signs of significant improvement. Upon release from Sick Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on July 21, she could only sit up for about 15 minutes, but now, she is able to sit up for a couple of hours.


News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The community is rallying around a local girl who has had to deal with more than her fair share of tragedy this summer. Victoria â&#x20AC;&#x153;Toriâ&#x20AC;? Martin-Luna, 14, of Smiths Falls, was heading home from a family reunion as a passenger in a three-vehicle convoy on Highway 400 north of Toronto, near Barrie, on Sunday, July 7, when two of the vehicles were involved in a multi-vehicle collision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was asleep in the back seat and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anything,â&#x20AC;? said Lesa Jones, chair of the school council at North Elmsley Public School (NEPS) in Port Elmsley, Drummond/North Elmsley Township, where Martin-Luna graduated from this past spring. Martin-Luna was due to start school at Perth and District Collegiate Institute next month. Martin-Luna was then airlifted to the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. She continues to need a neck and back brace for her injuries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was touch and go for a while,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if she would make it or not.â&#x20AC;? Martin-Luna suffered internal injuries including lacerations to her liver, spleen, bowel, and diaphragm. She also lost functioning in one of her kidneys, suffered a collapsed lung, and fractured her spine. She underwent two surgeries and was given six pints of blood. She also had rods and pins inserted in her back. With Martin-Lunaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, father, and stepfather keeping vigil at the Sick Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hospital in Toronto, back home, the community was already stepping up to help out. Jayanna Wood, NEPSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; office administrator, offered to help look after the other children while the parents were busy. While Martin-Lunaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandparents would have loved to have helped, they, and by extension the rest of the family, were dealing with two more major medical emergencies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when her grandfa-

Jones is planning to have a fundraising barbecue and car wash at NEPS sometime in September, with the money going to the Martin-Luna family, who face bills arising from physiotherapy and occupational therapy, as well as bills accumulated from parking and accommodation in Toronto. Town and Country Chrysler of Smiths Falls will be donating the food for the day.

Algae and aquatic plants play an important ecological role in lakes and rivers and they should be present. They are the first, vital links in a natural food chain that all other water creatures rely on including insects, frogs, minnows, small fish right up to top predators like bass, muskie and lake trout. Under normal circumstances, they also produce large amounts of oxygen helping to keep the water quality in a healthy state. So they are very important, but too much of a good thing can be very bad! During warm weather, populations of algae and aquatic vegetation can grow quickly to form large masses. As the mass grows and expands, algae and plants at the lower

OPP ramping up for last summer long weekend of year News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With the last of the summer long weekends only days away, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is giving advance notice that they will be honing in on distracted drivers as part of the heightened enforcement they have planned over this Labour Day weekend. With kids heading back to school next week, distracted driving is of particular concern to the OPP as distraction-related collision fatalities in OPP jurisdiction continue to surpass impaired drivingrelated deaths this year. According to the OPP, everyone travelling on roads and highways should be equally concerned about this alarming trend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people would not get into a vehicle with an impaired driver and they are at as much risk in the presence of a distracted driver as an impaired driver,â&#x20AC;? says Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander of the OPP Highway Safety Division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If drivers do not have the good sense to stop this dangerous behaviour on their own, I encourage passengers to take responsibility for their own safety by speaking up. If you are a passenger in a vehicle and the driver is not completely focused on driving, is talking on a

cell phone or even worse â&#x20AC;&#x201C; texting, remind them that they are endangering your life and that you want them to stop.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far this year, 47 of the 177 people killed in motor vehicle collisions in OPP jurisdiction involved distracted driving, compared to 32 impaired driving-related collision deaths,â&#x20AC;? said Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey, Provincial Commander of Traffic Safety and Operational Support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our statistics make it clear beyond a doubt that road users need to pay greater attention to this problem and get on board with our efforts to stop it rather than wait for a devastating tragedy to occur.â&#x20AC;? Speeding and other aggressive driving behaviour, impaired driving and seat belt compliance will also be on the OPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s radar over the long weekend. Boaters and off-road vehicle (ORV) users should also be prepared to see a strong OPP presence on waterways and trails, with ORV fatalities up 80 per cent and marine fatalities up more than 15 per cent this year.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) wants to know if you are seeing more algae blooms and aquatic plants in our local lakes and rivers. In response to what seems to be an increasing number of concerns about algae and aquatic plants, a survey has been created to help better understand the current perception of their growth. But the survey wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be around forever! Comments are being accepted until Aug. 31 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so now is the time to get involved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Current results show 82 per cent of respondents have noticed an increase of algae on their water body in recent years,â&#x20AC;? says Kaitlin Brady, RVCA resource technician. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed changes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or not â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we want to hear from you. We need all sides of the story so we can get a better idea of local conditions and concerns.â&#x20AC;? The survey should take 15 to 20 minutes to complete and can be completed online at http://www.

Proud grandparents are Larry and Debbie Smith and Tom and Beth Graham. A nephew for Christina Smith and Allison Graham. A great grandson for Eva (the late Bert) Young and Ken and Audrey Smith.

I’ve seen the unfailing will to live in a day old... I’ve seen the refusal to give up in the eyes of a two day old... I’ve seen a determined soul tell the world that it can be done. I’ve seen a miracle... And it’s the most humbling experience I have ever felt. “You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.” I love you and I’m so proud of who you already have become. You are truly an inspiration! Papa

MORPHY, Leone – In loving memory of our dear mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, nanny, sister and aunt who passed away August 7, 2008. She is gone, but not forgotten, As it dawns another year, In our lonely hours of thinking, Thoughts of her 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 five years ago. Sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all your family

TAYLOR, Adam – In loving memory of Adam who left us tragically on August 31, 2008. The After Loss Credo I need to talk about my loss. I may often need to tell you what happened – or ask you why it happened. Each time I discuss my loss, I am helping myself face the reality of the death of my loved one. I need to know that you care about me. I need to feel your touch, your hugs. I need you just to be with me. (And I need to be with you.) Please don’t judge me now – or think that I’m behaving strangely. Remember I’m grieving. I may even be in shock. I may feel afraid. I may feel deep rage. I may even feel guilty. But above all, I hurt. I’m experiencing a pain unlike any I’ve ever felt before. Don’t worry if you think I’m getting better And then suddenly I seem to slip backward. Grief makes me behave this way at times, And please don’t tell me you “know how I feel”, or that it’s time for me to get on with my life. (I am probably already saying this to myself.) What I need now is time to grieve and to recover. Most of all, thank you for being a friend. Thank you for your patience Thank you for caring. Thank you for helping, for understanding. Thank you for praying for me. And remember, in the days or years ahead, after your loss – when you need me as I have needed you – I will understand. And then I will come and be with you. Barbara Hills LesStrang Love Mom (Carolyn, nee Himmelman), Dad (Cemmis), brothers Vernon and David, Pa (Vernon) and Shirley and Fred. Family and friends who treasured Adam’s life as we did are invited to join us at Hillcrest Cemetery on August 31, at 8:30 p.m. for a Candle Vigil in honour of Adam and the 5th anniversary of his death. (Please bring your own candle). A special thanks to Wanda from Wal-Mart for the beautiful poem.

Perth LCBO urges food bank donations in exchange for boxes By DESMOND DEVOY

News – Perth people love their liquor boxes. Ian Dorward has never seen anything like it – and he used to manage the second busiest LCBO store in the province. “It is crazy, it is insane,” said Dorward, manager of the Perth LCBO. He used to manage the LCBO store at the intersection of King Edward Avenue and Rideau Street in downtown Ottawa, and “downtown (we) didn’t get a lot of requests. Everybody here in Perth comes here to get empty boxes.” In Perth, “I am not sure what they use them for,” but it is not unusual for him to see anywhere from 10 to 20 boxes go out the door in a day, “and it is usually not just one (at a time),” he said.

Children truly are the gift that keeps on giving—in love, happiness, satisfaction and spending your money to support and nurture them. In Canada, the cost of raising a child to age 18 is $243,6601! And then off go your youngsters for expensive years in college or university. With a bit of financial family planning, you can take advantage of tax savings and other programs that will reduce your child-raising costs and provide additional financial support when you need it. Your planning starts here: Take full advantage of tax deductions, credits and benefits. There are certain eligibility conditions that must be met but look carefully at these tax-reduction and income opportunities: • Child care expense deduction for an eligible child care provider, day nursery school, day-care centre, or an educational institution that provides child care services. For a child not claiming the disability tax credit, the maximum child care expense amount is $7,000 for each child under seven at the end of the year. • Eligible dependent tax credit can be claimed by an

unmarried person not living in a common-law partnership and a person who is married or in a common-law partnership but not supported by their partner. The amount of the credit is reduced by income earned by the dependent. • Children’s fitness and arts tax credits allow you to claim up to $500 per child for prescribed programs of physical activity and artistic, cultural, recreational or developmental activity. • Canada child tax benefit which is a non-taxable amount paid monthly to eligible families to offset the costs of raising children under 18. You must apply for this benefit. • Universal child benefit of a taxable $100 a month to families for each child under six. You must apply for this benefit unless you already receive the Canada child benefit. • Maternal/paternal Employment Insurance (EI) benefits when on maternity/ parental leave of approximately 55% of average insurable weekly earnings to a yearly maximum of $47,400. You

can apply for this benefit before giving birth and actually start receiving it during the eighth week before your due date. If you are adopting, benefits are paid starting from the date the child is placed with you. The benefit spans 52 weeks but can be divided between both parents for a maximum of 35 weeks. Raising children is wonderful but can also be expensive. To do so as economically as possible and to realize all your other financial dreams, talk to your professional advisor. 1 The Real Cost of Raising Kids by Camilla Cornel, 2011 This column, written and published by Investors Group Financial Services Inc.

Seeing this, his assistant, Michele Findlay, who recently transferred from the Smiths Falls store, suggested that they put up a donation box, with no suggested donation, for people to donate money to The Table Community Food Centre (formerly The Perth and District Food Bank). “There are some customers who we keep telling to donate and they take them anyway,” without paying. If he sees someone taking multiple boxes, Dorward admits that “we try to over-suggest when we see people taking, like, 20 boxes. If you take a box, please make a donation to the food bank.” This is Dorward’s second month at the Perth store, after his time in Ottawa and Barrhaven, and he will be holding on to the money raised until the Christmas food drive in December.

Lanark County Minor Hockey League embarks on pilot project By AMY HOGUE

fects all associations within its district, namely the Carleton Place, Perth, Lanark, Almonte, Pakenham, Stittsville, Richmond Munster, West Carleton and Osgoode minor hockey associations. Contact hockey will still be played at the competitive level of hockey. According to the Perth Lanark Minor Hockey Association’s (PLMHA) website, the discussion of checking versus non checking has been taking place for some time and that “recently there has been a focus on concussion awareness and its long lasting effects and lengthy discussions on what levels of hockey should be checking and non checking.” Difficulties in locating checking tournaments for house league players was also cited as a contributing factor in the decision to remove checking from house league play. Stories of hockey related head injuries have made headlines in recent years, particularly following Canadian hockey player, Sidney Crosbie’s, head injury in 2011. PLMHA past president Anne Arnoldi, explained that the risk of

injuries was part of the checking discussion. “There are injuries in many sports, not just hockey. In the past few years there has been a lot of focus on head injuries, concussions and the lasting effects. It has led to many discussions on what levels of hockey should have checking and non checking,” she said. Safety issues aside, there are both pros and cons to removing contact from recreational hockey. For players who are looking to enter into the competitive world of hockey where contact is still the norm, a lack of experience with checkingcould potentially put them at a disadvantage. Conversely, no contact hockey can contribute to stronger player development in the form of skating and puck handling skills. Glenn Austin, LCMHL president, explained those players who are interested in playing competitively will still be given the opportunity to develop checking skills and will be prepared to enter competitive hockey safely. “LCMHL has adopted non-checking at all levels

from Peewee and up, unless the player is moving up towards a competitive level whereby it is mandatory that the player takes or has taken a body contact course before stepping on the ice in checking capacity,” Austin wrote in an email statement to the Perth Courier. Austin stressed that the removal of body contact in all levels of house league hockey is part of a twoyear pilot project only, and that the League Executive will continue to monitor its progress for the 2013-2014 hockey season. PLMHA President, Bryan Greer, said that so far public response to the change in regulation in PLMHA has been positive but predicts the hockey world “will see more conversation come from when body checking should be introduced.” According to the PLMHA website, Lanark Carleton is one of the last leagues to provide checking at house levels. “This is not just in our area,” Arnoldi stressed. “House league hockey (all divisions) and competitive hockey below Bantam are moving to non-checking across Canada.”

Perth Geritol Hockey New and returning members of the Geritol League (age 35 and up) are invited to register now for the 2013 - 2014 season (75-minute games played every Wednesday night).


Sports – The hockey world may be gearing up for another exciting season of minor hockey, but returning players and parents will find this year a little different. Following a May 2013 decision of Hockey Canada to remove body contact from Peewee level and below, the Lanark County Minor Hockey League (LCMHL) has followed suit with its own changes to contact rules, effectively removing body contact from all levels of house league minor hockey. One of the issues centered around the checking debate is at what age is it appropriate to introduce checking into recreational minor hockey. For Hockey Canada, that age is now at Bantam level, bringing them closer to the standards applied in other parts of the world. Canada joins the United States, Australia, Korea, Great Britain, and Russia in removing contact from players 12-years-old and younger. The change in the LCMHL contact regulations comes in the form of a two year pilot project, and af-

Ottawa 67’s to face Belleville Bulls Sept. 11 for pre-season game Sports – For the second year in a row, the Town of Smiths Falls and the Ottawa 67’s Hockey Club are pleased to announce that the 67’s will be playing a pre-season game at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre in September. Presented by Rideau Insurance, the game, which is slated for Wednesday, Sept. 11, will see the Major Junior 67’s take to the NHL sized ice surface of the arena as the “home” team versus the Belleville Bulls. The Bulls finished the 2012-2013 regular season as the Eastern Division winners in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). “We have a vibrant, fun-loving community here in Smiths Falls and hosting the 67’s helps us send that message to hockey fans across the province,” said Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples. “I remember the roar of the full-house in our great new Memorial Community Centre arena last year and I’m already excited by the prospect of hearing it again on Sept. 11.” Along with Smiths Falls, “home” preseason games are also planned by the 67’s for Sept. 3 in Kemptville and Sept. 6 in Rockland. Game time on Sept. 11 is 7:30 p.m. As was the case last year, Riley Raccoon, one of the 67’s team mascots, will be in attendance to greet fans. As well, after the game is over, the 67’s will take part in an autograph session. “All of us in the 67’s organization are looking forward to returning to Smiths Falls and playing at the Memorial Arena,” said 67’s head coach and general manager Chris Byrne. “It’s a great building and, as we experienced last season, a community with great hockey fans.” Founded in 1967, the Ottawa 67’s are considered one of Canada’s most success-

Double the fun at Golf Fore the Cure Sports – The Golf Fore the Cure event at the Blue Heron Golf Club in Lanark drew in $10,570 in the fight for cancer research earlier this month. The annual golf challenge has grown so much over the years that it now covers two days, Wednesday, Aug. 14 and the next day. The accompanying photo shows the ladies who golfed during the Thursday, Aug. 15 event. The Wednesday winners were Karen Campbell, Anne Millotte, Elaine Saliga, and Leslie Lendrum. The Thursday winners were Linda Wall, Paula Black, and Eva Buker. In all about 96 women took to the links, helping not only in the battle with cancer, but donating to the food bank as well. Organizers will be requesting that the money raised will stay in the local area.

ful Major Junior hockey franchises, on the ice and in the stands. They’ve appeared in five Memorial Cup tournaments, winning twice. This year, while the Ottawa Civic Centre continues to undergo renovations as part of a broader redevelopment of Lansdowne Park, the 67’s will play home games once again at the Canadian Tire Centre (formerly Scotiabank Place), less than an hours’ drive from Smiths Falls. Rick St. Dennis, director of community services for the Town of Smiths Falls, says arena staff members are excited “and look forward to working with the Ottawa 67’s

organization as we approach game night. We are also once again, fortunate, to have the solid support of the Smiths Falls Girls Hockey Association with respect to organizing this event.” “Last year’s game against the Gatineau Olympiques drew the largest crowd the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre has seen since opening our doors in October, 2010,” St. Dennis noted. “We are confident we will experience a repeat performance on Sept. 11, as the 67’s face off against last year’s OHL Eastern Division leading Belleville Bulls. We also encour-

age everyone to purchase tickets early, to avoid disappointment.” The cost of tickets for the Sept. 11th game at the Memorial Community Centre will be $12 (HST included) for adults (13 years of age and older) and $6 for seniors and students. Children under the age of four will be admitted free. Tickets are available for purchase at the Memorial Community Centre office or they can be ordered by calling the 67’s ticket office at 613-232-6767, ext. 1.

Wicked fare

The 2nd annual Barns, Farms and Wicked Chefs summer gala in Perth on Saturday night, Aug. 24, was a great success, offering guests local fare in a beautiful country setting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the lawns and restored barns of EcoTay. Proceeds benefit The Table Community Food Centre. Clockwise: musicians entertained guests as they strolled from one station to another; even line-ups were fun; cooking up delectable fare; and lastly, Volunteer Cheryl Burnham greeted attendees and handed out complimentary wine slings that promoted the nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cause.

People First of Ontario responds to letter sent to grandmother By TARA GESNER

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Unity is strength! During a press conference in Carleton Place last Wednesday, Aug. 21, People First of Ontario (PFO) offered its full support to the family of an autistic boy who received a heartless and disturbing letter recently. PFO is an organization that promotes equality for all persons. The one-page, typed letter was delivered to Brenda Millson of Newcastle, grandmother to 13-year-old Max Begley. He was diagnosed with autism as a

toddler. Even though Max resides with his parents and older brother in nearby Oshawa, he frequently visits his grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. Millson immediately contacted the police about the letter, which is being treated as a criminal investigation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First and foremost, Maxwell, you belong here and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let something so hateful get you or your family down,â&#x20AC;? said Kory Earle, PFO president. Earle spoke from the headquarters of People First of Lanark County (PFoLC). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so disgusted by this offen-

sive letter and call on the writer to come forward,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do the right thing.â&#x20AC;? The letter stated that Max â&#x20AC;&#x153;is a hindrance to everyone and will always be that way.â&#x20AC;? According to PFO, Max could teach the letterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s author so much about life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People First of Ontario is so sad to see this type of hatred,â&#x20AC;? said Earle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not acceptable! We strongly feel people should be able to live in their community with dignity and respect.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our hearts go out to Max and his family,â&#x20AC;? said Earle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have our support!â&#x20AC;?

Literacy blooms at Perth library over the summertime By Rebecca McPhee

News – Bill Gates was once asked, “If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?” The crowd he was addressing at the University of Nebraska laughed at the question, and no doubt many people began to think of stereotypical superpowers like flying and superhuman strength. But do you know what Mr. Gates said? He said he wished he had the power to read faster. Seriously, the co-founder of Microsoft wished he had the ability to read faster. At first I thought this was a strange superpower to wish for, but after working at the Perth and District

Union Public Library as a literacy tutor for the past two years, I think I see why Mr. Gates wishes he could read faster. For Mr. Gates, knowledge is power and profit. To ensure his success, he needs to be up to date on the latest technology. He needs to know many theories, and a lot of information about the customers he serves. Mr. Gates must read a lot on a daily basis to do his job, and he feels his current reading ability is preventing him from doing the best he can do in his job. Reading is important, and I’m not just saying that because I’m a literacy tutor at the Perth library. I honestly believe that reading is an important life skill,

one that needs to be developed when we are young so that we have an advantage for the rest of our lives. That’s why the library and many community members have invested in the Summer Literacy Program over the past 24 years. This year, 114 children aged four to eight, from all Perth area schools, got the chance to develop their reading skills through one-on-one tutoring at the library in July and August. We live in a very fast-paced world where words surround us everyday. You only have to look around your house and neighbourhood to see that reading is a skill required everywhere, whether it’s through technology, in the kitchen or out

on the streets. Start with the technology in your house: computer, television, gaming consoles and cellphones. Technology plays a significant part in the lives of many people, and it is a major aspect of our society today. Technology requires a lot of reading. Look in the kitchen for more reading material: cereal boxes are covered in words that are just waiting to be read while you sit there and eat your breakfast; nutritional information and instructions on how to cook or prepare meals are often found on the side of products. All of these things need to be read to be understood. Next, take a look outside your house

and you will find even more to read: street signs that tell you where you are and the traffic signs that keep vehicles moving safely are all read by many different people on a daily basis; signs in store windows tell you what you can expect to find in a given store or their hours of operations. Learning is easier to do when children are young, but that doesn’t mean learning to read is easy. It does mean, however, that by learning to read at a young age, life will be smoother because an every day task will become natural, thus making giving these young lives more potential, both personally and professionally.

Medric “Cous” Cousineau, SC, CD, is finding that Thai’s bark is helping put the bite into his “Paws Fur Thought” fundraising walk from Halifax to Ottawa. Thai is Cousineau’s faithful partner and service dog, and the pair will be arriving for the Perth segment of the walk on Monday, Sept. 16. Cousineau was injured during a daring helicopter rescue of two American men off the Newfoundland coast in 1986, as a member of the armed forces search-and-rescue team. He was subsequently awarded the Star of Courage by then Governor General Jeanne Sauve. The walk began on August 1 of this year, as a way to raise public awareness, and funds to help other veterans obtain service dogs. These dogs are a means to help deal with injuries, both physical and mental, sustained in the line of duty by military personnel. The walk in Perth will start at the Great War Memorial Cenotaph at sunrise, 6:43am, and continue along a route with various points of interest in the town and surrounding area.
