Want to cut thefts 82 per cent? Lock your car door By DESMOND DEVOY

News – The number of thefts in Perth would drop by 82 per cent if people would simply lock their cars. For the month ending in August, Insp. Derek Needham, the detachment commander for the Lanark County OPP, told the Perth Police Services board (PSB) meeting on Thursday, Oct. 10 that there were 23 thefts that month, but added that “that number of 23 would be cut down to three or four. It’s the same in Carleton Place, it’s the same in Almonte, it’s the same everywhere. We could reduce a lot of them (thefts) if people would lock their cars and take their possessions in at night. Quick grabs, 99 per cent of them are from vehicles.” The PSB’s chair, Stephanie Gray, reported that she had noticed a “spike” in vehicle thefts. “We’ve charged general

groups,” said Needham. “It is a fairly easy crime. One or two people can do several cars in a night.” There were five break-and-enters in August, for which investigations are continuing. Further to this, there were: • 10 domestics, four cleared, six were non-Criminal Code complaints (ie. verbal), • three drug offences, one unfounded, one charge, • two impaired driving charges, • 12 incidents of mischief, • 26 false alarms, • 13 calls to 911. Open house On Saturday, Nov. 23, from 10 a.m. to noon, the Lanark County OPP will be hosting an open house, offering interested residents a tour of the detachment, as well as more information on what they do, like the auxiliary unit.

The OPP will also be conducting an online satisfaction survey in late November, which would give time to get the survey ready, “and avoid hunting season,” said Gray. The meeting also heard that Perth PSB meetings will now be held on the fourth Thursday of the month, starting in 2014, to accommodate police statistics reporting. Market Square vandalism Something as simple as sending OPP staff to have lunch in a vandalism hot spot can help turn the tide, when it comes to complaints about loitering, littering, and vandalism in the band shell behind town hall. “I sent some of my staff to have lunch down there, which is a good deterrent,” said Needham, who also credited “a fair amount of proactive patrol. There was some illegal activity (during a recent patrol) which was dealt

with.” “That area, and the Mill Street area are perennial problems,” said Gray. “It came to a crashing halt when you guys moved in.” Coun. Jim Graff recently saw some youngsters trashing the area behind town hall – while two young parents watched on and did nothing. “It makes you wonder what’s going on,” said Graff. Needham pointed out that moving kids along is not a guarantee to disperse the problem like it once was. “With every kid having a cell phone now, it doesn’t take any time for them to assemble elsewhere,” said Needham. Treasurer Lang Britchford agreed, saying that the loitering problem has been up and down, that, once the youngsters have been “shooed off,” they wait for the heat to die down, and simply return later.

Needham was asked if decommissioned police weapons could be sold on the open firearms market. “It’s all within the police services, not on the open market,” said Needham. “We’ll see if we can get a buyer. If not, we will give an order to destroy.”

Interval House celebrates 25th anniversary of Women’s Fair Nov. 2 By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

Community – Women and business will be celebrated Saturday, Nov. 2 when Lanark County Interval House (LCIH) marks the 25th anniversary of its popular Women’s Fair in Carleton Place. Set to take place at the Carleton Place arena from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the fair showcases a range of local women’s businesses and services while raising funds for LCIH’s programs and services. According to LCIH’s fundraising and volunteer co-ordinator, Heather Whiting, while the event celebrates its silver anniversary this year, LCIH didn’t become involved until after the original women’s fair committee (including Pat Jeeves, Judy Durjancik, Suzanne Mayrand, Cathy O’Reilly and Heather Ballinger), retired. “They (committee) gave us their values and we’ve honoured them and what they built. Overall, it has changed very little in the past five years. We still walk every day rooted in feminist principles, working to promote women and advocating equality and inclusion for all people,� she remarked. For the original committee, fundraising was a secondary priority, but Whiting said it has taken on a larger role for LCIH. “With the realities of the work today, it is of equal priority to help us fund the programs that we run for the women who benefit from our services,� Whiting stated. “We have found the numbers of women who call us rises with the cost of

The Lanark County Interval House Women’s Fair, set for Saturday, Nov. 2 in Carleton Place, will celebrate its 25th anniversary. It showcases a range of local women’s businesses and services and all proceeds living. As more women approach us for counselling and support, we have come to rely on the Women’s Fair more now to help us raise much-needed funds for our programs.� The fair features dozens of vendors packing the arena’s two halls, highlighting fitness, beauty, jewelry, clothing/ fashions, preserves, crafts, financial ad-

As an added incentive, the first 100 attendees through the door will receive a free goody bag. LCIH executive director Erin LeeTodd said the event “demonstrates true

leadership� and has taken on many themes over the years, but remains firmly rooted in public awareness and education to end violence against women. “The programs and services are critical to the women and children of our community and the Women’s Fair has always supported the work of LCIH and is led by and run by women,� she stated. “All of the artisans, chefs, volunteers, supporters, workshop providers and bakers are women! All of the businesses are women-run and women-led. This has been a commitment from the beginning of time and remains solid as the foundation of the women’s fair has provided.� Whiting credited volunteers, who almost entirely run the women’s fair, for their dedication. “The agency could never put all the hours into planning it without the dedicated volunteers carrying the bulk of it,� she said. “Our volunteers are talented, professional and committed to the cause – they are really great women.� The Women’s Fair takes place at the Carleton Place arena (75 Neelin Street) and admission is free. All proceeds go directly to LCIH. Business or organizations who would like to get involved in the 25th anniversary of the Women’s Fair, please contact Jeannie Mongrain at jeannie@mortgagesavvy.ca (sponsorships), or Shannon Murray at creative.minds@live.ca (table rentals), or Deanna Barry at deannabarry@storm.ca (silent auction).

News – When your neighbour’s well runs dry, it’s time for you to dig deeper. So to speak. The annual Build-A-Mountain of Food campaign has kicked off again for a seventh year and, sadly, the need remains as great as ever, though every year comes with its own share of changes. It was Lanark’s turn for a change this year. The old Maple Leaf Dairy was the donation drop off location last year, and while “Lanark has been great, we used to have the Maple Leaf Dairy, but we don’t have that any more,� said Hugh Colton, the campaign’s organizer, during the campaign kick-off at Farrell Hall in Perth on Thursday, Oct. 10. Now, the drop off location will be at 49 George St., at the old Village Treats location. Meanwhile, in Smiths Falls, “we lost National Grocers. We gained Giant Tiger on Chambers Street,� said Colton. “We are talking with Food Basics. There have been some management changes there.� No matter where in town the food is collected though, it will be staying in that town, for those who need it nearby. According to Colton, the latest report from Ontario’s food banks show that the number of rural families requiring food bank assistance is growing, and between four and five out of ten of those accessing the food bank in these areas are children. “Every ounce of food we collect in an area, we keep in that area,� said Colton. “There is no central warehouse,� where the food gets dispersed around the county.

deals‌ He knows all of the right people. He is my right hand.â€? When the campaign started seven years ago, it only took in Perth. Since then, as new community partners have joined on, the volunteers have collected more than 200,000 lbs of food and more than $100,000 in cash in total. “It takes a lot of everyone in this room,â€? said James Wright of Lake 88 FM, in the room, one of the sponsors of the campaign. “This is

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Help celebrate Co-op Week Oct. 13 to 19 DEAR EDITOR: Did you know that 18 million Canadians are members of at least one of the 9,000 plus co-operatives across this country? In fact, many members themselves might not even realize that they belong to one. I am hoping that we can help change this during Co-op Week in Canada, which runs from Oct. 13 to 19. Co-operatives create jobs and contribute to regional economies where private businesses would not see the desired returns on equity. This is particularly true in rural areas, where often the only convenient store or gas station is a co-op and the only financial institution in town is a credit union. Co-operatives follow a model that greatly empowers each member, resulting in a wonderful combination of business success and social responsibility – which plays an important role in the economy and in our communities. Having been reconfirmed in my position as Co-operatives Advocate for the Liberal Party of Canada following last summer’s reorganization of

responsibilities within the Liberal team, I am pleased to continue promoting Canada’s co-operatives and their values to the best of my abilities. In that role last year, I proposed to the House of Commons the creation of a special parliamentary committee to determine the needs of Canada’s co-operatives. Co-op Week will be celebrated throughout Canada. This is an opportunity for Canadian co-operative and credit union members “to celebrate the fact that they have collectively helped to build this country and to recognize their continuing contributions at home and abroad.” A good way for all to celebrate Co-op Week would be to visit or learn about at least one co-operative in your neighbourhood or region. By continuing to work together for the common good, we will sustain and grow the cooperative sector. Honourable Mauril Bélanger, MP for Ottawa-Vanier and Liberal Advocate for Co-operatives

COMMENTARY Help support your community Editorials – Everyone enjoys creating positive change in their community, but obtaining funds can be difficult. Enter Aviva Insurance, whose Aviva Community Fund gives away $1 million to projects across Canada which will benefit communities. The projects had to be action oriented ideas with budgets of $150,000 or less that will benefit a large number of people. The first qualifying round of the competition began Sept. 30 and wrapped up Oct. 14. Once Aviva has tallied the votes, 30 successful projects will move on to a second and then third qualifying round before winners are chosen this winter. Locally, there are several different projects entered into the fund, including Kemptville District Little League who are seeking $50,000 to $100,000 towards the construction of a new ball diamond in Riverside Park. They have raised $20,000 presently, but require additional funds to make it a reality. This new diamond would also allow little league to host the Little League Ontario Junior Division Championship in 2014. The Smiths Falls & District Centre for Youth are also looking for between $100,000 to $150,000 to renovate their space, which is outdated and currently serves more than 200 youth in the town. They would use the funds for a full external and internal renovation to provide a space to efficiently run its programs. Consider the benefits these projects would have in their communities and cast your vote. It’s easy. Simply register on the Aviva Community Fund website (www.avivacommunityfund.org), which gives each person 15 votes for the semi-finals. Those interested can also use the voting app on Facebook to cast their ballots.

Uncle Johnny thought chili sauce was worth a trip from Ottawa Lifestyle ¬– The air in the kitchen hung heavy with the sweet smell of chili sauce. The blue granite pot simmered on the back of the Findlay Oval, and every few minutes Mother would take the big wood spoon and stir the chili sauce, sending out more serious smells. Jars of every size had already been washed and boiled and were now upside down on a clean flour bag tea towel spread out on the bake table. Hopefully, by suppertime, the chili sauce would be ready to be put in jars, and there would be an ample supply left over to slather on our plates. Father would put chili sauce on his pie if Mother would let him. He thought no meal was complete without it. When it had all been bottled, and the lids screwed on as tight as they would go, it was my sister Audrey’s job to carry the jars outside and down to the dugout under the house, which served as our cellar. The two doors that rested flat against the outside of the house on a tilt were heavy and hard to open, and so I was spared from this chore, for which I was eternally grateful. I hated going down under the house, and into the dank dark hole that held our vegetables in a sand pit, and from swinging shelves could be found preserves and pickles of

every description. The shelves, suspended by two chains, was to assure the mice or any other vermin looking for a dark warm home would be unable to get to. Mother lined the shelves with folded copies of the Renfrew Mercury for further protection. Before Grandfather bought Mother a Barnett Ice Box, even our butter and milk were kept on the swinging shelves. And so, the many bottles of chili sauce would soon join the newly jarred preserves and pickles Mother had made from an ample garden that year. If we liked chili sauce, we had an uncle who liked it even more so, if that was possible. Uncle Johnny DeGray lived in Ottawa, but he and Aunt Vanetta often drove out to Northcote, a trip Father often said would be the last for the old car that seemed to be hung together with binder twine and hairpins! In a failed attempt to make the car look presentable, Uncle Johnny had painted the four fenders, none of which matched in size or shape, a deep red. He said he did that because he lived next door to No. 2 Fire Station on Lyon Street, and he always loved the red fire engines, and was fast friends with all the firemen.

ning, Uncle Johnny would join them in the driveway of the station, sitting on straight-back kitchen chairs, telling offcolour jokes and slapping their knees in gaiety. When Uncle Johnny and Aunt Vanetta came to visit, it was always an overnight trip from Ottawa. The couple was as different as night from day. Aunt Vanetta, tiny with snow white hair, and dressed as neat as a pin, and Uncle Johnny, tall, lanky, with a shiny pink head, completely devoid of hair, except for a small fringe around the back of his neck, was boisterous and loud.

came to the farm! He would go to the smoke house and personally pick the roast of ham, or the long link of sausages he would like for a meal, which Mother thought was perfectly all right with her. She cooked up whatever he chose, and of course the table was laden with heaping bowls of potatoes, at least two different vegetables, and plates of freshly baked bread. Without even asking, Mother knew that Uncle Johnny would scan the table and if it wasn’t already there, he would say “don’t forget the chili sauce, Mabel.” Uncle Johnny didn’t believe much in saying Grace, even though Aunt Vanetta was a devout Catholic, never missing Mass, and carrying her rosary beads in her pocket wherever she went, but at our table Grace was mandatory! I confess that during Grace, when Uncle Johnny and Aunt Vanetta were visiting, I kept my eyes open and on Uncle Johnny, and he kept his eyes on the bowl of chili sauce! He would load his plate like it was his last meal on earth, and then he would reach for the chili sauce, and just about empty the bowl!

lay out two slices of heavily buttered bread, and cover them with more chili sauce wiping the bowl clean with a corner of the bread. Often he would undo the top button of his trousers, to ease the discomfort caused by the mounds of food he had eaten. But it didn’t matter how much he had on his plate, or how often he went back for seconds, he always had room for those slices of bread slathered with chili sauce. And when it was time for Uncle Johnny and Aunt Vanetta to head back to Ottawa, Mother would have tucked into the back of the old car a couple of freshly plucked chickens, vegetables from the cellar, and always two or three jars of chili sauce. And Uncle Johnny would take the old car robe in the back seat, and wrap the chili sauce jars tight so that they wouldn’t come to some bad fate on the way back to Ottawa. Heaven forbid that the jars would smash together and break and he would lose his precious cargo! My older and wiser sister Audrey said she was quite sure he would rather see the chickens and vegetables toss out the car window, rather than Mother’s precious chili sauce!

Annual IODE craft fair set for Oct. 26 in Carleton Place Community – They call themselves The Two Local Yokels, but their fine craftwork takes them out of the ‘bumpkin’ class by a country mile! Peter Elliott and Terry Luneburg, brothers-in-law, have been doing what they call “fooling around” with woodworking for decades, and what they create can only be classified as true artistry. Luneburg, working in fine pine, creates everything from finely tuned animal toys for children, fun clothes racks, and a 32” long crib board (that’s right, 32”)! What Luneburg does now in his spare time is a far cry from servicing major appliances, a job he held for almost 50 years, but he now fills many leisure hours as he creates what he calls “ fun art.” Elliott is a true lover of recycling. Don’t put down an empty peanut butter jar, old wire coat hangers, or a used cork! He will soon turn those discards into unique birdhouses, a hobby he has honed over the years. He also looks for drift wood along the Mississippi and can be found scrounging for unusual rocks from the Lanark Pit deep in the valley. These rocks will eventually turn into frogs which will loiter on the highly lacquered driftwood and take on a life of their own in someone’ s garden or a front lawn. Many of us regret the loss of our Canadian penny, and wonder if down the road we might even forget what it looks like. Well, Luneburg is going to make sure that doesn’t happen. He has imbedded a shiny penny right in the centre of

Studio Theatre dishes up a taste of festival with one act plays By JOAN SONNENBURG

Arts – It’s festival time again, and as it does every year, Eastern Ontario Drama League (EODL) is hosting a one-act play festival. And as it has since its creation four years ago, Studio Theatre has entered a play, hoping that as in the past four years, it will win awards. But its difficult to present a play that has never been before an audience, and with that in mind, for the past two years, Studio Theatre has presented an Evening of One Act Plays, featuring their own entry and inviting some of those competing entries in the festival s to join them. It’s a great opportunity for all to showcase their festival pieces and for audiences to see some fine live theatre. This year, Studio Theatre is joined by Theatre Night in Merrickville, Ottawa Little Theatre and Tara Players in offering a fabulous smorgasbord of one-act plays three of which will eventually go on to compete in the EODL festival. Studio Theatre’s production is a comedy about death. Sound a bit weird? Not for Norm Foster, Canada’s most celebrated playwright. Only Foster could take the subject of death and present it with a mixture of laughter and thoughtfulness. Says director Barb Guthrie, “I read many one-act plays before making the choice of The Death of Me. As soon as I read this one I knew it was the one. It was very funny but it also had a little something deeper, a poignancy to think about.” Guthrie is a veteran of Studio Theatre, having done among other great roles an outstanding portrayal of Lady Bracknell in the group’s first year offering, The Importance of Being Earnest. She is also the winner of an EODL acting award for her role in the company’s 2010 one-act

Perth’s Studio Theatre, along with Theatre Night in Merrickville, Ottawa Little Theatre and Tara Players are presenting An Evening of One Act Plays Oct. 24, 25, 26, 27, Nov. 1 and 2. The Studio Theatre’s contriplay, My Narrator. Thursday and Friday, Oct 24 and 25, Studio Theatre will be joined by Theatre Night in Merrickville with their offering, Buttonhole in Silk by Gail Frick, a play that examines the relationships between three generations: grandmother, mother and daughter. Their stories become interwoven, and as each struggles for her own identity, the family similarities become appar-

bution is the Norm Foster comedy, The Death of Me. Above, Lucas Tennant (John), left, and Patti Greer (Cassie) discuss a second chance for John while rehearsing a scene from the production recently.

ent. Theatre Night in Merrickville is a small company with a big reputation, having won the EODL Full-Length festival in April of this year under director Margaret Shearman, who also directs this play. Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, The Death of Me will be accompanied by Eye of the Storm by Peter Zednick, presented by Ottawa Little Theatre. This thought-provoking play

takes a timely look at mental illness and youth, as 17-year-old Marlie and her family struggle with her inability to differentiate between reality and hallucination. Then Friday, Nov.1 and Saturday, Nov. 2, Tara Productions of Ottawa will join Studio Theatre with their production of The Weir by Connor McPherson. In a bar in a remote part of western Ireland, four locals are

swapping spooky stories to impress an attractive young woman. What begins as a simple visit to the pub soon turns into an evening of both funny and spell-binding stories, until the final tale takes a strange and unexpected twist. Conor McPherson is a master of the monologue, brilliantly capturing the riveting aspects of storytelling. Because of the length of this play (70 minutes – it must be 60 minutes or less) it will not be going on to the festival. But, you say, I’d really like to see all three of the visiting plays, but I’m not spending $60 for three performances. Not to worry. Just keep the stub of your full price ticket and present it at the box office for whatever other performance you wish to see and you will be admitted for just $5. Also, to celebrate our newly-rejuvenated theatre, there will be a cash bar in the foyer on opening night, Thursday, Oct. 24. Come early, mingle and enjoy a glass of wine. And don’t forget, Studio Theatre is now fully accessible. An Evening of One-Act Plays runs Oct. 24, 25, 26, Nov. 1 and 2 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 27 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance, available at The Book Nook (60 Gore Street East) and $22 at the door or at Tickets Please (39 Foster Street) in Perth. Phone or credit card orders can be made through Tickets Please, 613-485-3434 or order online at www.ticketsplease.ca. At the door, tickets are $22 and there is a student rate of $10 (with ID). For further information, call the Studio Theatre box office at 613-2677469 or visit the website at www.studiotheatreperth.com. If you’re considering an anniversary or birthday gift, why not give the gift of entertainment. Gift certificates are available for all performances.

National opinion researcher shares secrets on creating Countdown is on for Dominion Tankard environmental change at Lake Links Workshop Oct. 19 By HIT N’ ROLL

Community – Do you want to learn how to get lake residents involved in protecting the health of your lake? Want the latest on how to deal with lake issues? Then come out to the 12th annual Lake Links Workshop in Perth Saturday, Oct. 19 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Perth Civitan Club (6787 County Road 43) and we’ll show you how. As in the past we’ve got our usual line up of lake facts and updates of activities in the area, including the who’s who and the what’s what of lake issues. But this year we have something more, something big. This year will be extra exciting for our audience as we are thrilled that Angus McAllister (of Angus Opinion Research fame) will be joining us. He’ll be sharing his 25-plus years of experience surveying public opinion on the environment and other issues. He’ll be offering up ideas and actions on how local lake associations

can reach and engage lake residents – i.e. the ones that are really responsible for protecting the health of their lake. He’s knowledgeable, funny and entertaining. And he’s coming to Perth. Everyone knows it can be a struggle to get people out to help on your committee, create your newsletter, attend meetings, get involved in the latest stewardship program to help protect that water quality that everyone keeps saying is their number one concern on their lake. McAllister promises to give us some insight into who our lake residents and users are, what makes them tick, what interests them and what motivates them to act. While this workshop is geared toward lake stakeholders, any organization, committee or group can benefit from the wealth of knowledge McAllister will share regarding knowing your audience and how to get them moving. Everyone should walk away with some

new insight, tools, strategies and motivation for getting people to help you help your cause. We’ll also hear from Terry Rees, executive director of the Federation of Ontario Cottagers Association, who will bring us up to date on changes to legislation, funding, and management affecting lake environments. Space is limited so register early. To pre-register, please call the Centre for Sustainable Watersheds at 613-264-1244 or email info@watersheds. ca (be sure to include your name, organization and contact information). Cost is $15 per participant, which includes refreshments and a light lunch. Donations to the Perth Food Bank accepted at the door.

Sports – What is the Dominion Tankard? The Tankard is the annual men’s curling competition in Ontario to select the entry for the Tim Hortons Brier which will be held in Kamloops, B.C. in 2014. (More on the origins of the Tankard in a future edition of this column. In the British tradition, a tankard is a beer stein.) In 2014, from Jan. 27 to Feb. 2,the Tankard will be played in the new Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre (Arena). The Town of Smiths Falls and the Smiths Falls Curling and Squash Club are excited and proud to be hosting this event. “It will be the biggest sporting event in the history of Smiths Falls,” according to Mayor Dennis Staples. It is equivalent to hosting hockey’s Memorial Cup or a prestigious professional golf championship. Eleven teams from across Ontario will be competing in a round robin and then a fourteam playoff to determine the provincial champion. The 11 teams and 44 curlers are com-

posed of the defending champion (the Glenn Howard rink), and teams that survive the Zone Level (16) and are one of the two teams that were victorious at the Regional Level (4). The remaining two teams come from a Challenge Round which is composed of the 12 teams that were not successful in the Regional playdowns. In 2010, when the new Memorial Community Centre (Arena) became a reality, Agnes McVeety began talking about bringing a significant curling event to the Lanark, Leeds region. After considerable dialogue between club members, town staff and elected officials, it was determined that an event with a focus on the exposure and promotion of our region would be appropriate and that curling would be an excellent vehicle to achieve these aims. An initial meeting with curling club representatives, town staff , elected officials, Doug Bakes of OCA (Ontario Curling Association) and media was held in the arena in early May 2011. Smiths Falls was officially selected as the site for the 2014 Tankard in late fall 2011.

During the past year the Sponsorship and Volunteer portfolios have been very active. Sponsors continue to sign up; and,. we have had an overwhelming response for volunteers. There are more than 200 volunteers from Smiths Falls, Perth, Carleton Place, Richmond and elsewhere. We are delighted that many of the curling clubs in the region are stepping forward to help ensure the success of this Tankard. For example, the Perth Golf Club and Perth Curling Club are holding a Swing N’ Sweep this week which includes 9 holes of golf and 6 ends of curling, Dinner and some great prizes. (It’s sold out with a waiting list). All proceeds from this event will go towards the 2014 Tankard. Thank You Perth, especially Harry, Harry and Russ! Ticket package order forms are available online at www. the dominiontankard2014.ca; at the main office in the arena, and at the Smiths Falls Curling and Squash Club. Ticket order forms are also available at curling clubs in the readership area. For more information, call 613-812-3372.

Classic Theatre Festival designated top ranking for customer service by OHvation program Arts – As the Classic Theatre Festival looks back on its fourth summer season this Thanksgiving, it has plenty to be thankful for. Its two summer shows – Neil Simon’s The StarSpangled Girl and Leslie Stevens’ The MarriageGo-Round – were both popular and critical successes that drew thousands of tourists to town, the equivalent of between one and two tour buses daily. A key part of that success was the festival’s volunteer team, led by Madeleine Labelle, who coordinated scores of people involved in putting together the sets, maintaining the front-of-house operations, and assisting audience members with special needs. Their efforts, while already appreciated by visitors, were recently acknowledged through the Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization’s (OHTO) OHvation Customer Service Designation Program, which gave the festival top marks. As a result, the festival will be listed among those events and services in this tourism region that are the top

ranked with respect to customer service. The program is based on the mystery shopper model, in which the host does not know when the shopper will show up. Among those areas rated were service delivery, employee attitudes and presentation, knowledge of the area, ease of finding the space given clear and understandable signage, accessibility of the website, whether staff maintained eye contact and showed an interest in questions and concerns, and quality of the experience. The mystery shopper found the play – The Marriage-Go-Round– was “professional� and “delightful.� “Part of what makes the festival such an important tourism draw for the town of Perth and surrounding communities is the high customer service standards we set for everyone who works with us,� says Labelle. “Our motto is professional standards with a community feel, and it’s clear from this designation Submitted photo that our approach not only Fay Nelson, left, and Christine Ranney were part of the hardworking crew of volunteers who works, but feels great for helped the Classic Theatre Festival earn a top ranking with the Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Orgaeveryone involved too.� While the festival gets nization’s OHvation Customer Service Designation Program.

set to announce its 2014 summer season, which will include some new programming enhancements that will be focused on adding to the experience of visiting Perth, artistic producer Laurel Smith is feeling “blessed� to see such support from community volunteers. “We are so lucky to have a solid group of folks who really care about what we are doing and are committed to making the festival as good an experience as possible as we approach our fifth anniversary,� Smith says. Details on the fifth anniversary season will be announced soon at www. classictheatre.ca.

Stay in a German castle was absolutely intriguing Lifestyle – I can’t say I ever had an urge to stay overnight in a castle. But after one night in a spectacular, historic structure in the heart of Germany I am hooked! My wife Kathleen and I have just returned after two wonderful weeks in Deutschland, the German name for the third largest country in Western Europe. Only France and Spain are bigger! We were in the company of our good friends and regular travel companions Wendy and Frank LeBlanc. Wendy, the mayor of Carleton Place, needed a break from her hectic schedule. The Maguire’s simply needed a getaway after a busy summer. The LeBlanc’s spent years in Germany during Frank’s military service. In total he was in Germany for 11 years with the Canadian forces stationed there. Canada’s post World War II involvement in the country ended in the 1990s. Frank speaks fluent German (among several languages) and Wendy is also very competent in “Deutshe.” They were perfect trip leaders for someone like me who needs a phrase book to get beyond simple greetings like “Guten Tag” (good afternoon) and “Auf Wiedersehen” (goodbye). Wendy planned the visit using her extensive knowledge of the country. With a population of 80 million and such a long history, Germany is much more developed than Canada. Here we are still in our infancy, relatively speaking. There was more than enough new territory and attractions on this particular visit to keep the LeBlanc’s happy. They are regular visitors to Germany and they never tire of the country. Little wonder. It’s a beautiful place, especially the southern areas we visited including the picturesque Black Forest. I have been so busy this year that it wasn’t until two weeks before we left that I really took the time to study the itinerary Wendy had written for us. During a quick run through I noticed she had included a number of castles. In Europe that is not unusual because there are so many. Finding the best of the best is the challenge! In German the word “Schloss” is something of a general term liberally applied to chateaus, manor houses, stately homes, palaces and yes, castles. On the second day of our visit we arrived in Würzburg, a city of 125,000 in the Franconia district of northern Bavaria. It is located on the Main River midway between Frankfurt and Nuremberg, site of the war crimes trials following World War II. In the morning we visited the sprawling Würzburg Residence, the palace home of the former Prince Bishops of Würzburg. Built in the 18th Century it was heavily damaged in an Allied air raid late in Second World War and it is still being painstakingly restored. In 1981 it was inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage list. The city of Würzburg was 90 per cent destroyed or heavily damaged during the same bomb attack on March 16, 1945. More than 5,000 people died in a firestorm which wiped out the medieval centre of the

city in just 17 minutes. Interesting castle Over the next 20 years the buildings of historic importance were painstakingly and accurately replicated. In the afternoon we toured rebuilt “Festung Marienberg” (Marienberg Fortress). The castle, which served as home to the prince-bishops for nearly five centuries prior to construction of the residence in the city proper, offers a spectacular view of Würzburg and the surrounding district. The walk uphill to the castle was challenging but we made it in relatively good order. The photo opportunities, on a sunny clear day, made the walk more than worthwhile. Chalk up castles No. 1 and 2! We spent much of the first week traveling through territory we did not see during our last visit to Germany in the spring of 2011. During that 10-day excursion, also organized by Wendy, we focused on the Black Forest and the Alsace wine producing region of northeastern France. This time, at the end of Week 1, Frank turned our rental van south toward our ultimate destination, the picture perfect village of Gengenbach. Along the way we enjoyed a day – and a night – of castle tours. First on the itinerary was Schloss Lichtenstein. Dating from the 13th Century, it sits precariously on a cliff top and is absolutely stunning! There is too much history to outline here. But like much newer Boldt Castle on Heart Island in the St. Lawrence, Lichtenstein Castle was abandoned and fell into disrepair. Much of it has now been restored and is open to the public. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour which once again was highlighted by impressive views. It was a clear day and we could see 40-50 kilometres (km). The village below looked like a tiny model. Continuing our journey we arrived in the parking area below yet another incredible castle, Schloss Hohenzollern. Located 50 kms (31 miles) south of Stuttgart, Hohenzollern sits atop a mountain and is an amazing 855 metres (2,805 feet) above sea level. We are all committed walkers, but to get to Hohenzollern Castle you have to walk straight uphill. The LeBlanc’s were there years ago but did not attempt the extremely challenging climb. “And we’re (all) a lot older now,” Wendy observed. We settled for some pictures on another sunny, warm afternoon. Our final and most intriguing destination that day was Schloss Haigerloch, near Stuttgart. A section of the sprawling complex has been converted for use as a hotel and restaurant. Located in the Zollernalb district of central Baden-Württemberg province, the setting is in a mountainous region near the Lake of Constance and not far from the Black Forest. Schloss Haigerloch is beautifully situated. The historic structures include a massive church which is a major focal point for the people of Hagerloch. The castle stands like a beacon, high above the village. The com-

munity itself is built in tiers, rising from a mountain valley. Frank appreciated the standard transmission in our car as he negotiated the steep, curving, cobblestone streets. There is something special about staying in a place that was built 750 years before you were born! The hotel is definitely the oldest Kathy and I have ever have stayed in and we loved it. Modern rooms have been expertly fitted into the castle. And yet the historic features have been maintained which makes the hotel very special indeed. I don’t believe in hauntings but if there are ghosts then surely Haigerloch Castle must have more than its share? Hated to leave The day we arrived was mild and the four of us enjoyed a drink on the

oldest “patio” Kathy and I have ever sat on. Our evening meal was wonderful! The food in Germany – not to mention the beer and wine – is excellent. The next morning, before setting off for the small city of Donaueschingen to visit the source of the River Danube (another interesting adventure), we had a final look at the beautiful grounds of Schloss Haigerloch. We hated to leave! But there were more castles ahead of us as it turned out. During the second week of our stay we made two sorties across the wide Rhine River into the Alsace region of north-central France. The area is full of German sounding names because the Alsace was once part of Germany. One day we drove high into France’s Vosges Mountains arriving at awe-inspiring St. Odile Lookout which offered unlimited views of 30 km or more, despite some haze on an overcast day. Once again Frank’s driving skill was tested on the narrow, winding roads which lead to and from the pilgrimage site which stands at nearly 3,000 feet, overlooking the picturesque Alsace.

Mont St. Odile is named for the saint, also known as Odilia or Ottilia (662-720), who is venerated in the Roman Catholic Church. A large convent and two historic chapels stand at the apex of the site near the French town of Obernai. We saw numerous other castles and former fortresses in varying states of repair on our recent travels in Germany and France. Many are abandoned ruins which still look impressive on the mountainsides. They once served as homes for aristocrats or guarded small communities, providing refuge during times of conflict. Searching out European castles could become an even more interesting occupation than our covered bridge tours in the northeastern United States. In future columns I will give you another glimpse of our latest European junket. In the end this trip simply whetted our appetites for even more overseas vacations and visits to other spectacular sites. The supply is inexhaustible!

News – Staff and students across the Upper Canada District School Board ran in honour of a Canadian hero Thursday, Sept. 26, raising at least $31,900 for the Terry Fox Foundation during Terry Fox National School Run Day. They honoured the legacy of Fox, whose Marathon of Hope in 1980 drew international attention. Over the course of just one year, Fox’s marathon and associated fundraisers, collected $23 million for cancer research. “I am extremely proud of the support our staff and students offered today in Terry’s memory,� said superintendent David Coombs. “Cancer touches us all and it’s heartening to see the devotion to Terry’s cause as we aim for a cure to eradicate this terrible disease.� The top fundraising schools in today’s events included: Char-Lan District High School, $3,500; Lombardy Public School, $2,300; Queen Elizabeth Public School, $5,100; South Crosby Public School, $5,016; Laggan Public School, $2,000; The Stewart School, $2,000; Toniata Public School, $1,457; Carleton Place High School, $2,855; Maynard Public School, $1,900; and Tagwi Secondary School, $1,420. Some board schools have yet to report results for the run and the overall fundraising total is expected to climb, said Mark Calder, a senior communications officer with the board.

Cancer society empowers women to strike up conversations about mammograms age 50. “I waited until my daughter and partner urged me to get checked before getting a mammogram at 52. By then, I already had a large tumour and stage 3 breast cancer,â€? says the breast cancer survivor. North believes that this conversation saved her life and so she’s now doing her part to spread the word that mammograms save lives. “As a breast cancer survivor, I am proud to be among the hundreds of women in Ontario who have signed up to be Women to Women ambassadors,â€? she says. “I’m sharing my story in the hopes that it inspires other women to get screened.â€? Women to Women will see hundreds of Ontario women, like Brenda North, become lifesaving ambassadors who are spreading the message that mammograms save lives to their sisters, mothers and girlfriends. The fact that nearly three quarters (72 per cent) of Ontario women know someone who had or has breast cancer, increases the need for women to be proactive and join the movement. Women in Ontario can join the movement by registering at cancer.ca/womentowomen. Once registered, ambassadors will receive: 11 Thingamaboob key chains – one to keep and ten to give to others while having conversations about the importance of mammograms; tools to share the message online through email and social media; and a personal fundraising page to raise funds for essential breast cancer research. The online poll was conducted by Environics Research Group from Aug. 13 to 16. It was completed with a sample of 807 female respondents from Ontario, aged 18 years or older. A probability sample of the same size would yield a margin of error of Âą3.5 per cent, 19 times out of 20. About breast cancer One in four cancer diagnoses is breast cancer. In 2013 alone, 9,300 Ontario women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer and 1,950 women will die from it. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Early detection helps fight breast cancer and thanks to scientific advances, we now know that regular mammograms are the most reliable way to find breast cancer when it’s most treatable. Breast cancer screening in Ontario The Canadian Cancer Society recommends women aged 50 to 69 have a mammogram every two years

by either getting a referral from their doctor, or calling the Ontario Breast Screening Program directly at 1-800-668-9304 to make an appointment.

News – A new movement is being launched by the Canadian Cancer Society in Ontario, which is bringing women face-to-face to talk about the importance of getting regular mammograms. The Canadian Cancer Society’s Women to Women campaign is empowering women to care for one another by spreading the message that mammograms save lives. The Canadian Cancer Society recommends that women aged 50 to 69 should be getting a mammogram every two years. Alarmingly, a new poll from the Canadian Cancer Society found that 62 per cent of women in Ontario don’t know when to start getting regular mammograms. While breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths among women, as many as 39 per cent of Ontario women aged 50 to 69 don’t get screened for breast cancer regularly. In fact, the survey also revealed that nearly half (47 per cent) of women do not know that a mammogram is the best way to screen for breast cancer. “It’s clear that women need to know more about the importance of mammograms, and they need to get talking,� says the Honourable Deb Matthews, Minster of Health and Long-Term Care. “Women to Women is a unique initiative that will mobilize women across the province to take their health into their own hands and detect breast cancer earlier. Studies show early detection saves lives and the Ontario Government supports this through the Ontario Breast Screening Program.� When it comes to making health decisions, the poll found that close to four out of five women say that aside from their doctor, their girlfriends influence their actions the most. “We know that mammograms are the most reliable way to find breast cancer early. We also know that women confide in each other and talk about their health. Women to Women gives them a chance to weave a lifesaving message into those intimate conversations,� says Rowena Pinto, vice-president, public affairs and strategic initiatives from Canadian Cancer Society. Advances in early detection and improved treatment are the cornerstone of improved survival rates for breast cancer. By getting regular mammograms, cancer is found when it is very small, on average the size of an apple seed and at an earlier stage when it is most treatable. Women to Women ambassador, Brenda North, knows first-hand about the power of peer influence and the consequence of not getting screened regularly starting at

Local singers share talents at recent fundraiser in Smiths Falls Lifestyle – As I sat listening in the beautiful Station Theatre in Smiths Falls to the growth over the past two years of the Susan Shirley Program – a live-in, support and training program for single mothers, during and post pregnancy – I couldn’t help but remember my previous co-worker and now executive director of the not for profit sponsoring agency, Crowns of Life Ministries, Nichole Anderson. Just three years ago, she excitedly explained her vision of this truly necessary program to me. She and her husband Ryan, with support from family, friends and community have worked hard to bring her vision to reality, having now supported 18 women and their babies, the only program of its kind between Ajax and the Quebec border. I also remembered about 45 years ago, when I was in high school, going to visit a schoolmate who had become pregnant. It was in a house for unwed teens that was run like an army barracks, where she was made to feel so guilty and ashamed. The Susan Shirley Program has totally changed that environment to be a loving and caring, well appointed home where those attending are encouraged, trained and supported to become the best parents they can become. Such a great move forward.

I was attending their second annual fundraising gala with a silent auction of artwork, an incredibly decadent dessert table and several musicians performing to round out the evening. As I listened to these young people performing much of their own written material, I couldn’t help but realize how in many ways, these folks (musicians and visual artists) were “birthing their own babies” – their inner thoughts and feelings exposed and presented in public; the guts it takes for them to follow their dreams to do so. Alida Sont was one of the feature performers. She is a young singer/ songwriter from Perth who hosts an open mic at what is now the Golden Arrow. I’m always amazed how this timid, shy speaking gal is able to sing so much more strongly and creatively. Her sultry swing style accentuated by some tasty key and tempo changes which I found quite pleasing. She was ably backed by Matt Larabie on bass who showed some nicely crafted runs. Kenny Harden from Brockville describes himself as a Christian acoustic rocker whose songs well represent his passion of creating religiously themed songs. His passion and enjoyment of performing shine through nicely.

Ali McCormick hails from the Lanark Highlands and has been performing across the country in a variety of venues. Her self-described folk – grunge – pop can be seen regularly at O’Reilly’s Ale House in Perth. She, too, shows her emotionality and inner searching through her music. I’ve seen Ali many times over the years and she has really progressed with her delivery, stage presence and lyric depth. Nice to see her successfully follow her passion. Dan Sleep acknowledges his inspiration comes from musician, Jacob Moon who utilizes electronic pedal effects like looping to create and expand his sound. Dan utilized these same instrumental skills to provide background music for a slide show very nicely. The understated mix was enjoyable.

The rest of the performers presented their music on the “bridge” overlooking the dessert area (theatre foyer) with no sound augmentation which made it difficult to really hear these younger singers but that didn’t stop them from giving it their best shot. I couldn’t help notice 14-yearold Molly Hamilton because her impassioned, solid sound was able to cut through the din of the crowd with gusto. Brittany Blair, Morgan McNeeley and Seo-Yeon Park also added their various styles to this worthy cause. It was a lovely affair. In other news, I caught a true world troubadour last week at O’Reilly’s. Scott Cook, a Canadian prairie lad who has boldly shared his heart via his solo performances literally around the world many times. He and I had a chance to chat a bit and though he loves his rootless lifestyle, of which he is a recognized seasoned veteran living out of his van from show to show, town to town, country to country, establishing contacts and a fan base everywhere, he’s starting to think about establishing a home base somewhere after this tour. The tour will see him throughout the United Kingdom in October and Czecho-

slovakia in November, throughout Asia most of the winter and then back through the States in the spring. As I’ve written many times, it’s a long, lonely road out there, even for easy friend makers like Scott. He’s a straight up performer whose positive, emotionally charged vignettes paint sweet pictures in our minds. Look forward to seeing him back this way again. One more little tidbit for you: If you get a chance to catch local jazz band The Tritones – featuring Franc van Oort on guitar, Dave Colter on drums and Ross Taylor on standup bass, you’ll be glad you did. Just heard them again last week at Golden Arrow and anyone who captures the essence of Steely Dan, Bill Frisell, Johnny A along with their own well written pieces has got me coming back for more. Sweet! Upcoming events Saturday, Oct. 19: Laura Smith at The Studio Theatre. She will leave her audience on their feet, spellbound, with her dynamic voice, as she did at this year’s Stewart Park Festival. Tickets are available at Shadowfax. Support live music everywhere.

School fundraising with food – are we hurting while trying to help? Lifestyle – Fundraising for school activities and equipment is valuable and important. Often, less healthy food items such as chocolate, baked goods and pizza are used to raise money. Using these foods to raise funds can be very successful. However using these less healthy choices may give children a different message than the healthy eating messages they learn in the class. Many people, places and activities influence children. They are influenced at home, in school, at community and sports centres, in stores and restaurants, and through TV and the internet. They also learn through important role models like family members, caregivers, teachers, coaches, relatives, and each other. All of these can have a positive or negative influence on what children learn about food - how it tastes, how it looks, how it affects their energy level and concentration, how it affects their growth and development, where the food comes from and what they can do with it. Not only are children learning about food, they are developing lifelong eating habits and they are forming their own food and eating values and beliefs. At school children learn about food and healthy eating in the classroom. They watch and take part in eating at snack and lunch breaks, school-wide events, school meal programs, classroom celebrations, and in some cases through the items used to raise funds. Fundraising is one way

Nutrition Tips the community can be involved by choosing activities and items that raise money and, at the same time, support healthy eating messages. Does this mean you should stop supporting causes that fundraise with food? No, it doesn’t have to mean that at all. Instead, you might choose to donate without taking the food item. Or, you can suggest or ask others for new and different healthier fundraising ideas. Some fundraising ideas that involve food yet also keep the “fun” in fundraising include: garden fresh boxes filled with local produce, oranges or grapefruit, bread making kits, lower salt seasoning and spice kits, low salt soup kits, egg carton herb gardens started in the classroom and hot lunches that follow food and beverage guidelines and policies. Fundraising choices like these place a positive value on healthier choices and make the healthy choice the easy choice. Some schools have decided to move away from food altogether as a fundraising item. Try the “bakeless” bake sale – no baking involved! Parents and supporters who would have baked can donate the food money and those who would have purchased the baked good can donate their spending money! Students can contribute by developing the “bakeless bake sale” marketing campaign.

Additional ideas include: • Promote reading with book fairs • Profile the school by selling reusable lunch or shopping bags items branded with the school logo • Partner with a plant and flower nursery to sell bedding plants, hanging baskets, vegetable or flower seeds & bulbs • Hold a car wash • Organize student versus teacher events – sports games, spelling bees, board games, cook-offs • Plan a flea market or sports equipment sale • Sell stationary or school supplies bought in bulk at a reduced price • For more free information and ideas go to www.nutritiontoolsforschools.ca or survey parents, teachers and students to gather their thoughts. Speak to community partners. Fundraisers reach all of us at home, at school, in the workplace and in the community-at-large. Whether you organize, support or donate goods and services you can help make the healthy choice the easy choice. Marie Traynor MSc, RD, is a Registered Dietitian/Public Health Nutritionist with the Leeds, Grenville, Lanark District Health Unit.

Car Counsellor offers winter tire tips for upcoming season Lifestyle – “Hi Brian, I recently read the article regarding summer all-weather tires. The TripleTred (Goodyear) has a snow flake (embossed icon) on them. So, will this pass the highway requirements on the North-Shore and allow passage?” Thanks, Pete, Delta “I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned,” Unknown. I love Pete’s sign off; it made me smile. I’m assuming he’s referring to crossing into the province of Quebec, and is concerned about their regulations requiring snow tires on passenger cars and light trucks. He doesn’t have to worry because those rules only apply to vehicles registered and licensed by that province. Visitors may pass through with whatever tires they wish, as long as they meet minimum tread depth and other safety standards. Of course anyone brave enough to travel the roads of Quebec (or any other prov-

ince) in winter with summer tires is deserving of a medal or medication, probably both. He is correct in that the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred four-season tires meet those requirements as the snowflake icon on the sidewall indicates. This letter is a great introduction to the biggest concern of many drivers this time of year: winter tires. Here are a few tips to make deciding, selecting, buying, and using winter tires a little easier. 1) They’re not an additional cost. You’re going to wear out some type of tire anyway, so using the excuse that snow-rubbers are an expensive luxury is a little out in the deepfreeze somewhere. Every kilometre you travel on a winter tire is one less saved off your summer tires (tire and auto-makers call their summer tires, all-season). If they prevent one tow call or fender bender or lost day at work, they’ve more than paid for themselves and you virtually ride the winter lanes for free. 2) Yes, you need four. Note I said

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

‘need’, not ‘should have’, or ‘would be nice to have’. Front wheel drive vehicles have particularly light rear ends, and putting only two snows on the front will leave these vehicles very susceptible to fishtailing or spinning out with only the slightest manoeuvring error on winter road surfaces. Putting only two snows on the rear of a rear-wheel drive might provide improved propulsion, but it’s also nice to give the front wheels the capabilities of steering and braking on ice and snow. And just about any all-wheel or four-wheel drive vehicle won’t deliver expected performance from their drive-lines when summer and winter tires are

mismatched. 3) The best bet is to stick with the original sized tire that your vehicle was built with (listed on the vehicle’s door frame sticker or on the sidewall of the tire). The tire shop will need the complete size specs to quickly provide accurate price quotes. Look for numbers like P215/60R15 or LT235/70R17. If you have particularly low-profile or extra-wide tires, a tire retailer or shop consultant may be able to offer an optional size for improved snow traction and lower costs. 4) If you plan on keeping your current ride for more than a few years, consider buying seasonal steel or alloy winter rims. They’ll save you money on seasonal changeovers and prevent salt-pitting and finish-peeling of summer styled wheels. 5) Shop around. The biggest pricing campaign used by just about every tire retailer, national chain service centres, and OEM dealership is the ‘Buy 3, Get 1 Free’ (B3G1F) spiel. Compare the complete out-

the-door prices for this offering with a quote from your regular service provider. Chances are a shop not offering B3G1F promos will still be able to match or beat those prices due to lower margins per tire. And just about every tire manufacturer is now offering some type of seasonal mail-in rebate deal that lets all of their retailers compete on a level playing field. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@hotmail.com listing ‘Question for the Car Counsellor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, Ont. K7A 4T1]. When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I can’t always promise replies). Yours in service, Brian Turner

Design approach brings 2013 Cadillac into the running Lifestyle – The vehicles I road test for these reviews (yes, it’s a tough job, but I’m willing to make sacrifices), come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian head offices of the manufacturers and local dealerships. I prefer to use dealership units whenever possible because they more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higherend models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out the manufacturers’ websites or better yet, call your local dealership and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. It’s the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The Cadillac ATS I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at Mike Fair Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac in Smiths Falls. A blank sheet design approach on the 2013 ATS has brought Cadillac further forward than they’ve ever been in the run to challenge luxury auto imports in a rapidly growing class. The 2.0L turbo-charged all wheel drive Premium version I recently tried out demonstrated that this GM division is hitting far more targets than they miss. On the price point, the ATS ranges from $35,195 to $53,450 (all prices before destination, license, taxes, or current incentives). My tester crossed the price-line at $50,950. On a feature for feature basis this puts in a very competitive position against other offerings in the segment. The engine lineup includes a standard 2.5L four-cylinder, with an available 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder or 3.6L V-6. The turbo, which powered my tester, is also offered with a manual transmission, a choice seldom found in the luxury arena. Power output for this trio is 202 hp for the 2.5, 272 hp for the 2.0 turbo, and 321 for the 3.6 V6. Power, exterior styling, and interior features aside, the ATS needed to have a platform that brought tight handling and responsive steering to the table to test the European crowd of sedans and it doesn’t disappoint.

It weighs in with one of the lowest curb weights of the segment at 1,497 kg and has a 50/50 front to rear weight balance. Suspension duties are handled nicely by a five-link rear and multi-link front independent systems. Optional driver adjustable struts provide real-time damping and available Brembo performance brakes keep the ATS on track with confidence even during extreme cornering. P225/45R17 tires are standard and P225/40R18 is the optional size and performance models are equipped with P255/35R18 on the rear. The interior of the ATS is as feature-laden as you’d expect in this class with some notable stand-outs such as available power adjustable seat bolsters to keep you snug on hard corners, natural voice recognition and command controls, keyless access and push-button start, configurable 5’7” instrument cluster display, full-colour heads-up display, and a 10-speaker surround sound audio system. Of course the ATS is available with Cadillac’s CUE system (Cadillac User Entertainment) which drastically reduces the number of buttons while allowing a vehicle interface with just about every type of electronic media used today. One of the ‘neat factor’ options with CUE is a motorized faceplate that opens with the correct security code to reveal a mid-sized cubby for concealed storage. About the only shortage in the ATS cabin is rear seat leg room. This sedan is basically a twoadult transporter because only small children would find enough room in the rear seat. On the road, my ATS tester had no shortage of acceleration power with smooth transmission shifts, even on full-throttle launches. The ride was quiet and controlled with the right balance of road surface ‘feedback’ through the steering and suspension systems. Heavier bumps and dips were well isolated from the cabin. Dry and optimal road conditions didn’t let me try out the AWD or traction control systems, but these systems do benefit from an optional

mechanical limited-slip differential. On the safety front, Cadillac has taken full advantage of emerging technologies to provide a complete

menu of passenger, driver, and pedestrian protection offerings. A forward collision warning system is available in an option package that includes lane departure warning, automatic wipers and hi-beams, rear thorax air bags, and the popular safety alert seat that notifies the driver of potential collision risks from front or rear or either side by vibrating different quadrants of the driver’s seat. On the up-trim performance and premium levels this package also includes adaptive cruise con-

trol, front and rear automatic braking, side blind zone and rear crosstraffic alert, and automatic collision preparation. Exterior styling is a critical element to success in this class of vehicle as with most and the ATS has won most critics over, but the important votes come from buyers, so drop by your neighbourhood Cadillac store to check your ballot. Yours in service, Brian Turner

Custom orthotics are made from a mold or scan of your feet. They are designed to help correct foot, knee, hip, and lower back ailments. The main reason that your custom orthotics don’t work, is not that they were made incorrectly. The main reason is that they are being worn in the wrong type of footwear. Don’t trust just anybody to fit your feet and custom orthotics in the proper footwear.

PEP-powered participants high-tail through the Highlands By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Community – Participants in the Highlands Hunt Adventure Race took to the hills and valleys in Lanark Highlands on Saturday afternoon for a race of strategy and endurance for a different cause. The event was a fundraiser for the new Perth Enrichment Program, (PEP) which is designed to give seniors living alone a chance to build on a neighbourly support system by providing local, personal, specific care in a day program setting. The program is slated to begin operation in the new year, in a new building at 12 Elliot St. in Perth, thanks to the insight of Dr. Bob van Noppen, and his team, who is banking on community support to

help with fundraising. “We raised about $1,000 and that is part of the capital fund drive,” said Paula Whaley, who is part of that support team for seniors. They are hoping to raise $22,000 for the cause and will be presenting their plan at local service clubs as they seek support locally. “It’s a day program geared to older seniors who may suffer from Alzheimer’s or dementia,” said Beth van Noppen, who was scavenger hunt organizer. Her husband, Bob van Noppen is the director of the program. They hope to turn the hunt into an annual event. “It’s the first time for Perth (to have a program of this type) and there is a wide sweep of folks with different levels of functionality.” PEP is a community-based, day-long social and

• to enhance and/or maintain the functioning level (physical, social, emotional and cognitive) of participants on an individual basis, in concert with input from attending physician, health care specialists, and family; and • to support, equip and provide respite for family/caregivers. This program is a start-up corporation, founded by a local family doctor, a local nursing and an executive assistant. All have extensive experience in the health care industry, and have maintained excellent reputations in this same industry. A board of directors provides governance and works to build bridges to the community to promote the work of the program and secure sponsors. Visit www.morepep.ca for more information.

Participants typically exhibit cognitive, social, and/or functional limitations, and therefore require the supervision and structure that adult day programs provide. Some features of the day programs include transportation, lunches and snacks, assistance with, or supervision of, eating, walking, toileting; physical therapy, art, music, socialization and peer support; social work services and there is even an on-site nurse. “It’s also designed to give the caregivers a bit of a respite,” said van Noppen.

Breakfast Made Us

Famous!

W

Suiting up On Thursday the children entered the kitchen with their food, and suited up in their aprons to create kitchen alchemy with the base ingredients chosen. One team focused on a dinner meal of spaghetti and magic meatballs. The sauce included mushrooms, carrots, sweet peppers, and broccoli-these choices were based on the children’s intention to have more vegetables in their family meal to maximize the nutritional value. The other team decided to prepare a

healthy breakfast meal of whole grain banana pancakes, and sausage patties. Both teams used the locally produced beef in their meals that is available on an ongoing basis to The Table’s Good Food Bank participants. The children in the program were really focusing on the points we had discussed on how to make more affordable meals with inexpensive ingredients. Both meals were thoroughly enjoyed by both participants and volunteers of the program, and everyone came away feeling more enlightened on how to make healthy choices in food. The Table’s After School Program is focused on providing inspiration to children from eight to 12 years, to prepare, and enjoy healthy food.

Community - Participants of The Table Community Food Centre’s After School Program toured the Good Food Bank last Tuesday, Oct. 8. The children ages seven to 12 were put to the task of choosing and preparing healthy recipes based on items they might obtain in a typical visit to the centre’s Good Food Bank. Before the children headed downstairs they discussed some of the roots of poverty in our community and gave some poignant reasons why they believe people in our community may have difficulty affording or accessing good food and basic groceries. One After School Program participant said that “a person might have to pay for repairs to their dwelling, and may not be able to afford their food,” a very thoughtful response from a child their age. Wendy Quarrington, Good Food Bank talked with the children about how any added expenses to a household budget can mean that the family or individuals cannot afford to feed themselves. After Quarrington talked to the children about how a typical shop goes for participants at the food bank, the children were split into two teams to go through a “mock shop” as a family of four. The challenge was to create nutritionally balanced recipes, the shopping assistants helped guide them through the aisles in making their choices more healthy and whole foods based. Coral Sproule, The Table’s After School Program coordinator, discussed with the children some ideas of things we can do to stretch our food dollar. One suggestion was made that we could grow a portion of our own food in our home or community garden space. Another was to choose grocery items that are not taxed convenience items, but rather bulk base ingredients that we can prepare ourselves at home.

Connected to your community

‘Let’s Talk Resilience’ meeting in Perth inspires action Community - What do-able projects would help make a more resilient Perth? This was the question that was enthusiastically explored by a full house at the Perth Legion on Sept. 26. The meeting was sponsored by the Town of Perth and organized by Transition Perth. Exceeding the hopes and expectations of the organizers, between 120 and 130 people of all ages showed up, ready to explore the concept of true community resilience. Socializing and enjoying light snacks made from mostly local produce started off the meeting, and then participants heard from local author Mike Nickerson

and EcoPerth’s Bob Argue. Nickerson reminded us that as a species we have reached the point that it is time to mature and adapt to our current reality of increasingly limited resources, economic instability and climate change, and that we can do this by becoming more conscious of the choices we make, keeping lasting sustainability in mind and in the process re-building community and increasing our enjoyment of life itself. Argue outlined EcoPerth’s impressive list of projects that have addressed these realities ranging from solar panel installation projects, promotion of local food, and reforestation through tree sales.

Mayor John Fenik said it only takes one person to make a difference, and this set the stage for the next challenge: what do-able project would you like to see happen in Perth that would improve life here? Participants shared their ideas around tables of eight participants. Then individuals who were willing to work on such projects were asked to briefly describe projects they would be willing to work on and posted these project ideas along one wall of the Legion Hall. Meeting facilitators were Healthy Communities’ Jeff Kohl, Bonita Ford and Sebastien Bacharach. “We thought that people might come

Nominate a junior citizen E

ditorial – Take a look around – at school, in the library, at church or on the playing field. There are young stars everywhere and they deserve to be recognized for their hard work. These stars are making a difference, inspiring others and building community. Nominate them for the 2013 Junior Citizen of the Year Awards. The program strives not only to recognize the dozen or so outstanding people who will be the recipients of awards, but also to give deserving recognition in their own communities to hundreds of others. To achieve this, everyone nominated receives a certificate of congratulations. It is coordinated by the Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA) with the support of its 300 member newspapers and our sponsors. Nominations may come from anyone in the community who wishes to recognize a deserving young person for all they do. They should document the activities of the nominee with letters, newspaper clippings, recommendations, photographs, etc. Nominees from previous years who continue their noteworthy endeavours are eligible to be nominated again. New nomination forms and updated documentation are required. Nominations will be accepted until Nov. 30, 2013, and information can be found at the following website: http://www.ocna.org/juniorcitizen Nomination and supporting forms are available in both PDF and Microsoft Word formats. If you use the Word format document you will be able to complete it on your computer. The PDF document can be printed and written on.

Any resident of Ontario, aged six to 17 years (must be at least six years, but no older than 17 years by November 30, 2013), is eligible to receive an Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Award. Only individuals may be nominated. Nominees may be involved in: worthwhile community service; special young people who are contributing while living with a physical or psychological limitation; individuals who have performed acts of heroism or bravery in the past year; or, recipients may also be ‘good kids’ who show a commitment to make life better for others and do more than is normally expected of someone their age. A committee of community newspaper publishers, editors, and our sponsors will select the award recipients from all nominations received. Up to 12 individuals will receive an award. Recipients and their families are invited to attend an awards ceremony in Toronto in March, 2014. Final recipients will be announced on the OCNA website on Friday, January 24, 2014.

Exciting throne speech trailer! Lifestyle -You guys! I’m so excited! The Parliament show is starting up again – and there’s even a trailer! As I write this, the Speech from the Throne was set to go on Wednesday, Oct. 16. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was so keyed up about this he even posted a video about throne speeches on his Twitter account. (Yes, I follow him on Twitter. You never know what little gems will get posted.) This video is indeed a gem – a sapphire-hued gem, in fact. It’s kind of cartoony and would probably appeal to the Grade 5 social studies set. It features a cheerful-sounding woman who has a shades-of-Sarah-Palin accent. (You can find it at www.stephenharper.ca/SFT/en if you’re not on the Twitter.) After I laughed and pointed at the cheery little video, I made Groom-boy watch it. Then I returned to the Twitter to watch the snide comments roll in. Throne speeches are wonderful because the government gets to talk about all the Great Stuff it has done and what Wonderful Things it will do next. According to the video, this throne speech is going to set the agenda up to the election in 2015. Do you think, though, Mr. Harper will be able to stop himself from proroguing parliament for that long? Ah, proroguing. Up until fairly recently, I didn’t even know what the word meant. I had to look it up before writing a column about it a while back. I’m not the only one who was left scratching his or her head about prorogation, either. On one of the blogging platforms where I have posted this column over the years, my last contribution about prorogation ranked second in popularity only to a column about my kid swearing (“Insert Sound of Horns Blaring”). At the time I explained prorogation has generally been a fairly non-controversial routine pro-

cedure that discontinues the meetings of parliament without dissolving it as you would before an election. In the olden days, before phones and e-mail and trains and planes, prorogation was STEPHANIE GRAY the time between sessions for MPs to return to their home ridings, and it often lasted about six months. Now that MPs don’t have to attend Ottawa by stagecoach, we don’t tend to need such long breaks – unless the prime minister wants to stomp away from the sandbox, that is. Seems as though federal and provincial government leaders are getting into the nasty habit of going to the royal representative and begging for prorogation more often. (I dare you to ask your boss for prorogation.) That’s okay, though. While MPs were off being busy elsewhere and trying not to think about the scandals waiting in Ottawa, the media was doing a bang-up job reminding the rest of us. For instance, remember how Mitt Romney was pilloried during the 2012 presidential campaign in the U.S. for his “binders full of women” comment? Well, here in Canada, Mr. Harper will have to contend with a binder full of Mike Duffy stuff. I wonder if “fixing the Duffy thing” will be part of the throne speech? Do you suppose the word “senate” will be used at all? If Mr. Harper closes his eyes, covers his ears and rocks back and forth while humming, will it all go away? Now that I have seen the fantabulous throne speech trailer (which I certainly hope was paid for by the Conservative party), I can hardly wait for the main event. I wonder if this next session of parliament will be a blue-hued cartoon with a Sarah Palin voiceover. Will Senator Duffy win the Oscar for “best male actor in a supporting role”? Stay tuned, voters! Heads up!

Checking in on the Davidson family after house fire razes dwelling Lifestyle – When news splashed across the media outlets about the Davidson family house fire this past summer in Elphin, support rang through the community. Friends and family helped to ensure Mark, Rita and their sons had accommodations, food and the daily necessities to keep going. A Facebook page and a trust fund were both created to provide constant updates and an avenue for financial support. The Davidson family has truly witnessed what a caring community can do to help those in need. Local children were offering up their toys while strangers contributed to the trust fund. They’ve since been granted a cabin out at Purdon Cottages, giving them a roof over their heads until another option comes their way. Although this support will always hold a special spot in the Davidson family story, their needs haven’t weaned. By this, I mean they are still in need of some everyday essentials among other items. The Davidson family could use a chainsaw, large Rubbermaid containers and a two-burner stove, while everyday needs include paper plates, cups and gluten-free breads as well as meats.

Thanksgiving celebrated in style with turkey hunt Community - I am sure that our student body was very thankful for our four-day Thanksgiving weekend. We even celebrated Thanksgiving at PDCI by doing a little turkey hunting. We weren’t running around the halls with guns, we were searching for images of turkeys. The wonderful office administrators posted pictures of turkeys all around the school. Each turkey counted as 100 point for your house. Matheson is now in the lead by a large margin, thanks to Emily Jordan and her fabulous hunting skills. If your displays of determination and character don’t involve hunting turkeys at school you can apply for the Loran scholarship. This scholarship is for graduating students who have displayed impeccable character and leadership in the school and the community during their high school years. If you wish to be considered please see Mrs. Bourque or Mr. Wiley. Other scholarship opportunities are posted outside guidance.

News – Where cops and robbers once met, teachers and students now teach and study. The office of then-Perth Police Service Chief Pat Capello has been changed into Elaine Foster’s, Adult Literacy and Employment Preparation Program room, and there are certainly no end of jokes about T.R. Leger School of Adult, Alternative, and Continuing Education’s new Perth home being located in the old cop shop at 1881 Rogers Rd. “It’s familiar to some of our students!” joked office assistant Pamela Gordon on the morning of Thursday, Oct. 10, during the official opening of the newly-moved campus. But she was quick to add that most of the students “were curious about how it looked in here.” “I’m really upset that we don’t get to use the old cells!” joked teacher Diane Edwards. “We are very happy with the space. It’s a lot brighter and fresher” than their former home of nearly a decade on Sunset Boulevard, said Gordon. “It just seemed like the perfect fit for this school,” said Gordon. “Education is a celebration of our future, our replacements,” said Ike Doornekamp during the opening ceremonies. “Back in the early spring, I emailed John Fenik and said ‘We are looking for a new spot,’ and he said, ‘Go for it.’” According to Gordon, once the school heard that the old Perth Police Service was moving out of Rogers Road and in to the OPP county headquarters on Highway 7, a simple email let the town know that they were interested in moving in – and the rest, as they say, is history. During the opening ceremonies, the school thanked the town for the ease of the transition. “We had seven moves this year on T.R. Leger campuses and this was the smoothest,” said principal Geoff Trasuk. “The community really helped,” something that is not always forthcoming from all communities. “Here, we were embraced,” said Trasuk. Fenik pointed out that when people move to Perth – and when he is encour-

aging them to move here – they very often ask about schools in the area. “I say we have the best educational schools in the area,” said Fenik. “I include T.R. Leger (in that). They are part of our community. Their students, they are special.” Pointing to the new campus, Fenik added that “there is a real future hear,” with the possibility of expanded programs and physical space. “This could be a real centre of excellence,” said Fenik. The school’s student body usually fluctuates between 90 and 120. “We make it work,” said Gordon. “A lot of them (students) have work responsibilities, family responsibilities.” One of the new aspects of the Rogers Road facility is the child and youth worker who deals with students under the age of 18, for two days a week. Since the word ‘alternative’ is in the school’s title, it is not surprising that things are done a little differently here than at a more mainstream high school. “We don’t do stand-up teaching,” said Edwards. “You work at your own pace.” Life experience is taken into account when distributing credits when a student returns to school – but not enough to give them a free pass, so to speak. The teaching staff look at things like leadership opportunities that the returning students undertook, like being the captain of a hockey team, being a manager at a job, certifications like driver’s education, getting Smart Serve certification, even being an executor of an estate or looking after an elderly relative with dementia, “so that has merit,” said Edwards. “You can earn up to 10 credits with this.” While bosses are willing to take a risk on some people who may not have reached their high school graduation, they still push for their employees to make that final push. “We’ve had situations where bosses will (allow a student to) take time off one day a week to come in because they want all of their employees to have Grade 12,” said Edwards. “It can be done in four months… if you are totally devoted to it. You have to work hard on it,” though, normally, “most people (do)

News – If Heather Marshall had to pick any 20-day period to visit Kenya, and still be safe, she couldn’t have picked a better time. She left the country before the terrorist attack on an upscale Nairobi mall which saw more than 67 people killed, but arrived just a day after a fire destroyed the international terminal at the east African country’s largest airport. “I was on the first plane to get through,� said the Grade 10 student at St. John Catholic High School during an interview on Monday, Sept. 30. “It (the international terminal) was still smoldering when we got in.� Marshall and her fellow Me to We volunteers deplaned at the domestic terminal and, breaking with tradition, were allowed to phone home that night to let their loved ones back in Canada know that they were okay. “I feel very blessed that I was first able to go and, second, that nothing major happened while I was there,� said Marshall. She stayed in a rural area near the Tanzanian border, and “most of the people I would have met, they would have been in the rural areas,� and not likely have been anywhere near the mall during the September attacks. One of her group’s Kenyan facilitators, Toby, sent a Facebook message out saying that “he was OK. I’m sure that he was really sad what happened to his country. I feel sad for those who were in Nairobi.� This was her first time in Africa, though she had gone

on similar volunteer trips to the Caribbean and Mexico. On an earlier trip, she had learned about everything from immigration to saving seeds, sustainable development, and water conservation in Arizona’s Mexican border region. In Kenya, the focus was more on education, farming, and water, with the aim being “a hand up, not a hand out.� When it came to understanding just how hard it is for some Kenyan farm women to draw water from the land for their families, Marshall literally walked the walked, carrying a 20-litre jerry can on her head, for hours, back to the village. However, she saw that technology is universal and that everyone had cell phones in Kenya – so, the farm women would get caught up on their phone calls for the day during the long walks, “returning their calls.� The water was certainly needed, and not just for farming. “It was definitely hotter than here and it is quite hot at night, and when it rained,� said Marshall. Construction work also became a part of her itinerary during her stay, helping build a stone wall, which would later form part of an x-ray room at a local health unit. She also helped out constructing a multi-storey chicken coup for a girls’ boarding school. Sitting in her living room, still dressed in her own Catholic high school uniform, she said quietly that, in rural Africa, “a girl is less likely to be picked to go to high school,� than a boy is.

Facts may be lacking but Hanks brilliant as Captain Phillips coming a catastrophe by the cool headed thinking of the captain, Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks). He has his crew hide in the ship while he tries to deal with the pirates and buy time. He manages to use his radio to keep his crew informed about what the pirates are doing, and they manage to turn the tables and take Muse hostage. It looks like everyone is going to walk away from this until the pirates manage to grab Captain Phillips and take him in the lifeboat. Desperate to come home with some kind of payday the pirates kidnap the captain and the real ordeal begins. Captain Phillips is an incredible movie. In doing my research I did come across some discrepancies between the actual events, and the story thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s portrayed in the film. Fortunately itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my job to judge

My Take MARK HASKINS

such things. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my job to judge that movie on the screen in front of me, and it is tremendous. Paul Greengrass focuses his lens on the figures of Captain Phillips and his heroics, and the Somalia pirate Muse who is willing to do R0012348628_1010

MOVIE: Captain Phillips STARRING: Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Michael Chernus, and Max Martini DIRECTOR: Paul Greengrass RATING: 14A Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Captain Phillips is a story that touches on a lot of things. It touches on the effects of globalization. It touches on the desperation of people with nothing to lose. Mostly though, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the bravery and resourcefulness of a single individual. The shipping route off the coast of Somalia is known for pirates. In 2009 an American cargo ship, the Maresk Alabama, is sailing through those waters when it is attacked. A small group of Somali pirates, led by a man named Muse (Barkhad Abdi), boards the Alabama and take it over. A bad situation is kept from be-

whatever it takes to get his money. Greengrass uses their relationship to create the tension that runs through the film, and it could make it a black and white, good versus evil, kind of story, but the world is never that simple, and so neither is the film. Greengrass is very aware of the circumstances that creates men desperate enough to hijack a cargo freighter, and manages to filter that through his lens without taking away from the heroics of Phillips. An actor Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never heard of and can find no information about, Barkhad Abdi plays the role of Muse. While heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a relative un-

known he may not be for long as his performance is exceptional. He captures his role perfectly. Tom Hanks is a gift. His portrayal of Captain Phillips is a lesson in how to take the words on the page and turn them into a real, living, feeling human being. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an inspiring performance. Granted the events or the man in the film may not match up exactly with reality, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my concern. My concern is for the merits of the film itself, and the film I watched was astounding. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

MILLER Gerald Allister

BOWES (SMITH) A special “Thank You” to all of you who sent notes, cards, food, flowers, phone calls and other displays of affection for my mom, Betty Bowes and her family at the time of her death. Mom loved her Lanark Lodge “home”, so your donations there and to the GWM Hospital (T.L.C.) and her Asbury Free Methodist Church are extremely meaningful and appreciated. “A generous life well lived is a lasting inspiration!” Linda and Jack Poirier and Family

WEDDING ANNOUNCEMENT The picturesque Walton United Church, of Oakville, was the setting for a sunny June wedding between Eva Jiang, daughter of Zhenhua He and Xinlin Jiang, of Shanghai, China and Kyle Taylor, son of Terry and George Poulos, of Carleton Place, and Len Taylor of Port Alberni, BC. Eva was attended by her friend, Lori Reyes as maid of honour and Kyle’s best man was college friend, Phil Patacsil. Kyle’s youngest cousin, Mackenzie Knowles, served as their darling flower girl. The newlyweds reside in Toronto where Kyle is employed as a graphics designer at Printer Gateway and Eva is prospecting career opportunities, having just graduated from the 3D Animation program at Sheridan College. CARD OF THANKS

CARD OF THANKS

THANK YOU To Lewis and Jackson he was Grandpa and to Carter and Kyle he was Poppa. He was Dad/”Homer” to Jeff and Kim and to Clint and Louise and for 42 years Gail was his Bride. The words “Thank you” seem too small to express how appreciative we are for all the support given to us at the time, and since the passing of our much loved Gary Bron. His death came far too soon. Paramedics and police were so compassionate and kind to us at the time and we thank them for their professionalism. The continued phone calls offering condolences and help if needed. Our fridge was overflowing with the more than generous amounts of food sent to us, all of which was enjoyed and appreciated. Lovely flower arrangements were sent to our home and to the chapel. Stuart Blair gave us guidance at a difficult time and we say Thanks to you, to Blair and Sons and their staff. To all who attended the funeral and made donations to L.A.W.S. or Habitat for Humanity, Thank you. The service was conducted by Reverend Barry Joynt who captured the essence of Gary and we are truly thankful for such a heart warming service. Thanks to Glen for the phone call and to Bill Neilson and staff at the Timber Run Golf Club for providing beverages and the perfect setting for the gathering of family and friends who enjoyed a very bountiful and tasty lunch catered by Metro in Perth. We would also like to say a very big Thank You to Dr. Wayhay, Mike Bingley, the nurses and all who work at the North Lanark Health Clinic. What a super facility to have in our midst. The visits to our home showed how dedicated these people are to the care of their patients. The staff and services provided by Medi Gas in Brockville went above and beyond. Thanks Julie for staying with Gary while errands were run. Many friends stopped by for a visit or telephoned Gary and he enjoyed these. During the years of dealing with COPD, family and friends were always there checking on how we were doing. Thank you to Barb for a shoulder to lean on. We continue to receive cards in the mail and all are filled with warm messages that are comforting to us. We shall miss him always. The Bron Family

THANK YOU We would like to thank everyone who helped make our 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration such a success. First we would like to thank our family and friends for attending the Mass offered for our intentions and Father Brian McNally for his kind words and special blessing. Thanks to all who came to dinner with us at “My Place” in Smiths Falls, where the owners and staff provided excellent food and service which everyone enjoyed. Also thanks to everyone for coming to our home after dinner for cake and coffee. Thanks to all for the lovely gifts, cards and good wishes we received and also for visits from friends and relatives to our home. God’s blessings to all Francis and Jean Malloy

“THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES” At our Diamond Anniversary party Ron and I looked around at our dear friends and family that have been there for us both in joy and sorrow over our 60 years and thought we were the luckiest people in the world. Thanks to my wonderful brother Brian Kealey and his amazing wife Marilyn who hosted our party in their beautiful home. We will remember forever. The refreshments and decorations were superb as only Marilyn can make them. To my niece Angie (our earth angel) who worked her little heart out. To Loral Spence for our wonderful wedding cake, a masterpiece! To my children Janice, Chris and David for the wonderful video that depicted our 60 years together. To Janice, Nicole and my grandkids for the memory book. It will be our treasure forever. Also thanks to my wonderful neighbours, friends and family for the many cards and gifts. We will cherish them forever. Sincerely Noreen and Ron Syme

Pam Joynt October 22, 2002 11 years have passed. Not a day goes by without you in my heart and thoughts. I sometimes daydream about having you back for one day. So you could meet your grandbabies, and they could meet their amazing Gramma Pam (I can imagine your face beaming with joy). So I could get one more of your hugs (still the best hugs in the world!). So I could tell you one more time how much I love you. And, now that I am a mother myself, I would tell you that I have a new respect and appreciation for all you did for me. And how unbelievably grateful I am to have had you for my mother, and my best friend. But since this cannot happen, we will spend time with you in other ways. Through the wonderful memories, and stories, and by carrying on your traditions with our children. You are forever loved and deeply missed. Big Hugs! Love Tara (Jason, Brynlyn, Lyndon and Donovan) xoxoxoxoxo ~ Pam No farewell words were spoken No time to say goodbye, It’s often hard to understand Why certain things must be and the reasons why they happen. But we find comfort knowing that God is always there To keep the one we loved so much Forever in His care. She was ours and we miss her so. Mom, Lawry and Ruth

games, as she has a great interest in character and plot development. She also has a keen interest in science and biology. “I’m still figuring it out,” she says with a smile. Part of the reason she hesitates to rush into the NGO (non-governmental organization) field is because it is such a hard field to break into, even with her extensive volunteer experience. She has met Free the Children founder Craig Kielburger several times at different conferences, and book signings, and he confided to her that it is more difficult to get into the NGO field than it is to get into Harvard University. The youngest of four children, Miller saw this for herself when a friend of her brother John, who both attended Harvard, tried to get on with Kielburger’s organization – and couldn’t. Kielburger’s Free the Children is supported by the Me to We social enterprise, which raises money through speakers, books, and the sale of indigenously-produced jewelry, like the type Miller tried to make in Kenya. Some of the Masai people of Kenya are employed by Me to We to produce the jewelry, which can include banana fibre napkin rings. Miller spent one of her mornings beading and making key chains. “I was not very good at it,” she laughed. Of course, just as one does not travel to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower, or to China and not see the Great Wall, Miller’s group did get to go on safari. “Safaris are really nice. We didn’t see any elephants, but we did see some wildebeests,” she said. “We saw some lionesses, and lion cubs, hippos, a water buffalo, some baboons and warthogs.” Upon her return, she was a little underwhelmed by some of her classmates reactions to her trip. “To be honest, a lot of them were not very interested,” said Miller. Others did seem interested, saying, “Oh, that was cool,” but not saying much beyond that. She was more surprised at the reaction she had when she was re-entering Canadian life, a concept called “reverse culture shock.” “You notice all of the things that you have done and your friends have done,” said Miller. Back in Canada, she noticed “the waste, the excess food. I always eat my leftovers. It’s the least I can do.” For her next overseas adventure might see her go back to Africa, to the west African nation of Ghana, or closer to home, to Nicaragua in Latin America.

St. Paul’s United Church’s new, revved up reverend By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – The Spirit moves the Rev. Gerald Kerr. Yes, the holy spirit moves him too, but in a literal sense, it is his Honda Shadow Spirit, that really moves him. “I thought it was a very appropriate name to my way of life,” laughed Kerr, the new full-time minister at St. Paul’s United Church in Perth. He stops for a moment, pausing thoughtfully over his meal of fish and chips – which, as a Maritimer, he approves of, despite a tad too much batter – to search for a pious spin on his ride. “Always drive your bike as if no one can see you,” he said, combining a lesson from motorcycle riding class, and what could well be an upcoming sermon. “It’s like the movement of the spirit. We can’t see it, but we should believe that it is true.” For Kerr, a motorcycleriding reverend may not be unusual in these parts (Rev. Shelley Roberts of St. Andrew’s United Church in Lanark has one, as does Fr. Pierre Champoux of Holy Redeemer Roman Catholic Church in Kanata, formerly of Holy Name of Mary in Almonte,) but the unplanned purchase was, yes, a symptom of a mini “mid-life crisis.” He loved to follow music festivals in Nova Scotia, and found himself on the south shore on summer for a birthday party in 2008. “I was smitten,” he said of the sight of the bike. “I’d never ridden before in my life. I didn’t have a license. But I just had to ride it. It’s a wonderful feeling of freedom. But it is dangerous.” Ever since, his motorcycle “began to define me, this crazy old guy who rides a motorcycle.” A pub might not be where one would expect to find a member of the Perth clergy in the middle of the day, but on a recent sunny Thursday afternoon, that’s exactly where members of Kerr’s congregation, gathering for a lunch, just happened upon him holding court for this interview, at O’Reilly’s Pub. People dropped by to ask after a parishioner he has just visited in hospital, and to wish him well. He has certainly been welcomed by his flock, but there is something else that drew him to Perth – blood. “I wanted to connect with my Scottish ancestral roots,” he said. “I have a fetish with all things Scottish. This is a pretty Scottish town.” It was his love of running that brought him to Perth. “I want to get back into it,” he said. “I’m looking for a window to do it more regularly.” About two years ago, he was on sabbatical at Queen’s University in Kingston,

when he met a Perth lawyer with whom he struck up an acquaintance. “Through him I learned of the Kilt Run,” said Kerr. “I came back in June, 2011. I had fun with that, saw the town a bit.” Following his time in Truro, Nova Scotia, “I felt the call to move on. It wasn’t planned or anything. Things just seemed to blend.” On Sept. 28, St. Paul’s congregation held a farewell party for interim minister, Rev. Camille Lipsett and her husband Brian. It has been some time since the United faithful had a regular minister to look up to and he admits that St. Paul’s is “going through a process of transition. It creates a lot of anxiety.” But when asked what steps are being taken to turn the corner on this anxiety, he replies, “that work has been done already. We are in a position of readiness.” One way they have done this is with a new motto – which he says he will be held to himself – as well as “to be more open to the community, in areas of hospitality and welcome… (and) to renew the energy of the congregation in its worship life.” He adds that, for a church to be relevant in any community, “the church cannot be cloistered behind its four walls… (it has) to be looking outward rather than inward. It shouldn’t be impossible to be going about the church’s work in the wider world.” For him, the work done in more secular settings, like pubs or coffee houses, can be just as relevant as that done at the church. “There are fewer and fewer people participating in organized religion,” said Kerr, but he wants to reach out to people who “may not claim an affiliation (but) they still affirm many of the hopes and values that people of faith are living out.” He will not be leading that charge alone, though, since he feels that there is an “enormous amount of leadership in this congregation. You feel a lot of energy come out of that.” He has already attended his first church council meeting, “and I was told I would be lucky to get a word in edgewise…I’d better be ready to jump in.” He has already had his first hospital visit, and has some ideas that he will be feeling the congregation out on in the coming months. The United Church is openly welcoming of same-sex unions, for example, and “I am a firm advocate for social justice aspects… the church has a desire to be affirming.” He admitted that “we’re

not there yet,” for total inclusion of the gay community, but pointed to the work being done by Affirm United, billed as “working for the full inclusion of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities in the United Church of Canada and in society,” on its web site. Becoming an “Affirm” church is a two year process, which, if, at the end of the two-year process, is voted in favour of by the congregation, could see things like same sex washroom facilities and the inclusion of rainbow colours to show that he church is a gay positive space. “At the moment it is not even a discussion point,” Kerr hastens to add. “That

is an area in the future that we could move towards and have a conversation.” For himself, as he began the process of becoming a reverend, he admits that “I was a little uncomfortable” when he found that there were several gay students in his class. But, once the class work was doled out, and the students began working in smaller groups, and got to know each other better, he began to see that they were all “sharing the same hopes and dreams. That is how that shifted radically. It’s something whose time has come. We have to accommodate.” Photo by DESMOND DEVOY See MINISTER page P15

Kerr seeks to bring church more fully into wider community From page P14

On a more local level, Kerr is mulling possible changes to the pulpit area of the church, such as getting rid of the carpet as it muffles the sounds of the choir. FROM THE ROOTS Born in New Brunswick, Kerrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first mission trip was to Prince Edward Island, but on his second trip, he was sent to Newfoundland. There, he was to undertake a survey in the suburbs of St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the possibility of a possible United merger with the Anglican Church. During this time, he saw, up close, just how tightly tied were religion, politics, and education in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest province, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to see it (the church) in its full regalia and bureaucracy.â&#x20AC;? He also met a group of young students from all over the world, studying fishing, which showed him the power of education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took a long hiatus from it (the church),â&#x20AC;? said Kerr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had commitments, people depended on me. (But) the call to ministry never left me. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t not do this.â&#x20AC;? Though born in the Maritimes, he lived for about 30 years in the Georgian Bay region of Ontario, near Owen Sound, where his sons still live. His daughter lives

Had he been ordained a bit to Brooklyn, near Liverpool, NS,

before moving on to Truro. He officially took up his duties in Perth on Oct. 1, and arriving in the area on Sept. 20. Kerr lives off of Golf Club Road outside of Smiths Falls, close to nature, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a nice place to retreat,â&#x20AC;? a place where he saw a two-year-old doe that very week. He may need that palace of solitude as he grapples with the spiritual questions that bedevil

any man of the cloth, especially in a time of great suspicion of the motivations and methods of organized religion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try to simplify our lives with easy answersâ&#x20AC;Ś but we have to embrace the complexity of life,â&#x20AC;? he said, as the educator in him begins to step to the fore of the conversation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not to take out the atheist agenda, but to under-

stand things like quantum physics. We live in an expanding universe, not a contracting universe. As a system expands, it gets more complex.â&#x20AC;? Then, tying it together with his new spiritual mission, he reaches for that Oprah-like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ah-ha!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; moment, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;there is an expanding universe within ourselves.â&#x20AC;?

Blue Wings give thanks for two big weekend wins By STAFF

PERTH 6 SHAWVILLE 4 A long bus ride to Shawville on Friday didn’t deter the troops as they earned a 6-4 win over the Pontiacs. The Blue Wings were behind the eightball throughout the first and second periods, trailing 3-1 and 4-3 at the breaks before turning it up a notch in the third with three for the win. Zac Rodier had the team’s only goal in the first, a power play marker with assistance from Blair Barr and Andrew Davis. Adam Moron scored in the second for the Blue Wings, assisted by Rodier and Barr on the

Sports – The Perth Jr. B Blue Wings had some things for which to be thankful over the holiday weekend, including two EOJHL wins. Sunday’s afternoon tilt against the Metcalfe Jets was a bit of a sleeper, but they got the job done – and stayed out of the penalty box for the most part: just 10 minutes of minor infractions. Riley McEwan gave the Blue Wings a quick bang out of the box with his goal at the 1:35 mark of the opening period. He was helped out by Alex Vala and Christian Bueti. Vala had one of his own, assisted by Andrew Davis and Jaren Burke at the 11:35 mark. Metcalfe had one before the end of the period when Joel Cunningham got by the rookie netminder, Justin Morell, who earned the win, and a game star for his performance. The teams played through a scoreless second period, and it was all Perth heading down the straightaway in the third period. Travis Brown had back-to-back counters, with help coming from Jordan Leeks, Jimmy Pearson, Adam Morton and Jacob Lyon. Lyon had the team’s final goal, assisted by Austin Lamonte and Brown for the 5-1 win. Brown and Bradley Stitt, both of Perth, were the other two game star players.
