Aiming for the Olympics


Her family therefore hopes to raise $16,500, as the overall cost of equipment, ranging from jacket, trousers, boots, shooting stand, mat, scope, could cost upwards of $15,000.This final cost does not include transportation, accommodations, competition entry fees, ammunition, memberships, range time or targets. “We’ve gotten a lot of support from the community,” highlighted Scott Gardiner, Mary Patrick’s proud father. “But our fundraiser has yet to go viral, as they say.” The young woman realized she had a talent for sharpshooting following her admittance to the local cadet program. There, she practiced using the Daisy Air Rifle at 10m, both prone and standing. Her first year, she skipped two of the four

marksmanship levels and made the unit team. “Little did I know I wouldmake the team for five consecutive years, win the zone championships twice, place second junior at provincials, have two 4 th place finishes at the National Cadet Air Rifle Championships and become the National Champion in the Dominion of Canada Rifle Association National Postal Shoot,” said Mary Patrick. “These achievements allowedme to compete in national full-bore competitions for two years and earnmyself a spot on the Canadian National Cadet Rifle Team.” After realizing her potential, a fellow coach took Mary Patrick under his wing. “He encouraged me to start practicing small-bore, which I started last year,” she

stated. Even with a lack of equipment and small- bore experience, she managed to hold the provincial record for the international junior category, sitting at a perfect score. “When she approached me, telling me she wanted to practice her shooting and maybe even have to miss school days for it, I told her she had to meet me half way,” explained her smiling father. “She had to maintain good grades.” It seems the young woman held her end of the bargain, as she holds a 95% average in her classes. “We’re very proud of her,” said Scott.

Cornwall’s very own Annie Oakley is hoping to receive support from her community. Mary Patrick Gardiner, a talented sharpshooter and daughter of Scott and Wendy Gardiner, is trying to reach the next level in her quest to become a future Olympian. But the 17-year-old has come up against a worthy adversary: expensive equipment. “To be able to shoot at the high- performance level, an air rifle alone costs about $4000,” she explained at a local Tim Hortons. “This does not include the cleaning supplies, the rifle accessories or safety equipment needed for the rifle.”

C’est aux Dream Builders Studios, chemin Second, qu’a eu lieu la première représentation de L’Affaire Charlotte . La pièce de théâtre, présentée par la troupe de L’Amalgame des arts de la langue française et du théâtre, est une œuvre de Nicole Labelle, elle-même résidente de la ville. Charlotte Larocque, âgée de 59 ans, mère de famille et trois fois grand-mère, disparait de son domicile. Ses enfants finissent par remarquer son absence alors que M. Larocque traite l’affaire avec désinvolture. La pièce, garnie de plusieurs moments hilarants, est aussi dotée d’un coté sombre, voire dramatique. « C’est une comédie dramatique, a déclaré Mario Sarda, qui dirige la pièce avec Chantal Quesnel. Donc, il y a des moments de grands rires, mais aussi des moments de tristesse. » La pièce sera de nouveau présentée les 25 et 26 février à 19 h 30, et le 27 février, à 14 h. — photo Francis Racine Mais où est Charlotte?





Correction The article we published last week, titled Saying goodbye to Cornwall Art Gallery?, contained some erroneous information. We incorrectly identified Jamie Gilcig as vice-president of communications, when in fact, he holds the title of vice-president, director of communications. In addition, we stated that TAG wasn’t approved for taxpayer funding by city council, when in fact, the recommendation was made by the city’s community agencies budget subcommittee. The decision to allocate funding to TAG has yet to be taken by city council and will take place later this month. The Cornwall Journal regrets the error.

The event, held annually for the third straight year, sees walkers join at the Agapè Centre, before making their way down Pitt Street, to Second Street. From there, the more than 100 participants went up Sydney Street and onto Fifth Street. The Agapè Centre is the largest food bank and soup kitchen program in Cornwall, supporting over 1200 clients each month. They provide emergency food relief and clothes for those who need it most. In addition, they partner with local community organizations to address the issues of hunger and poverty, to improve the access to food and basic resources and to create awareness to the issues we have locally.

à l’école. » Cemême club accueillemaintenant plus d’une dizaine demembres. « La plupart des élèves qui ont joint le club ne savaient pas comment s’y prendre, a expliqué M. Nait- Chabane. Mais je leur ai montré ce que je savais et ils ont bien appris. » En effet, 10 élèves ont récemment participé à un tournoi amical d’échecs, qui avait lieu à l’École secondaire publique Omer-Deslauriers, située à Ottawa. Plus de 200 jeunes de la quatrième année à la douzième année y participaient et chaque joueur avait la chance de participer à cinq joutes. « Nous avons dû quitter l’école tôt le matin, a rétorqué en riant M. Nait-Chabane.

Au moins, suite au tournoi, nous avons eu droit à un repas pizza. La plupart de nos joueurs ont remporté deux de leurs cinq joutes. » « J’ai gagné deux parties et eu un match nul », a vite affirmé Nicolas Helps. Selon l’entraîneur qui en est à sa première année d’enseignement, un match d’échecs peut être très motivant pour un élève. « Les échecs permettent aux jeunes de développer leur réflexion, a suscité l’enseignant. C’est beaucoup de probabilités et beaucoup de maths. » « J’aime beaucoup le jeu », a déclaré Hunter Racine, membre du club. Rappelons que les échecs opposent deux joueurs de part et d’autre d’un plateau appelé

échiquier, composé de 74 cases claires et sombres nommées les cases blanches et les cases noires. Les joueurs jouent à tour de rôle en déplaçant l’une de leurs seize pièces, claires pour le camp des blancs, sombres pour le camp des noirs. Chaque joueur possède au départ un roi, une dame, deux tours, deux fous, deux cavaliers et huit pions. Le but du jeu est d’infliger à son adversaire un échec et mat, une situation dans laquelle le roi d’un joueur est en prise sans qu’il soit possible d’y remédier. « Les échecs, c’est l’art de duper son adversaire », a conclu M. Nait-Chabane, sourire aux lèvres.


Ensemble, ils se rencontrent à chaque mercredi et jeudi, à l’heure du dîner. C’est devant des échiquiers quepratiquent les membres de l’équipe d’échecs de l’École secondaire publique L’Héritage. L’enseignant responsable du club et entraîneur est nul autre que Larbi Nait-Chabane, lui-même amoureux du jeu. « J’ai joué aux échecs lorsque j’étais à l’école ainsi que lorsque je fréquentais l’université en France, a-t-il expliqué. Éric Génier (directeur de l’école) m’a approché et a proposé que l’on crée un club d’échecs

what they would take, coffee.” His love of coffee has transformed the man from a simple roaster to the owner of Coffey’s Coffee. “I started roasting coffee beans when I lived in Hershey, Pennsylvania,” he explained. “The coffee over there was horrendous, so I started roasting beans for myself.” Soon enough, some of his friends and colleagues started asking for the rich, black beans. “Next thing you know, I’m roasting for a lot of people,” he continued, smiling. But roasting coffee beans isn’t as easy as it seems. “Sometimes, you either over roast them or you under roast them,” he said. “When you under roast them, you often get a sour taste.” Fast forwards some years and Coffey is

now the proud owner of two coffee bean roasters. Following him through his house, the man stops before a door. “This is where it all happens.” He opens the white door to reveal a small room filled with extraordinary aromas. On the right is a shelf holding several containers of green beans. “I don’t keep a stock of roasted coffee beans,” he said. “I stock green beans only. After coffee is roasted, the flavor starts to deteriorate almost immediately.” In front of him are his pride and joy; two roasters. The machines, which might very well be props for a science fiction movie, are utilized quite often by Coffey. “I weigh a certain amount of beans,” he said, pointing at a small scale. “I then put them in the machine and set time and temperature.”

Coffey pulls out a container of green beans and opens the top. “I simply love the smell they have,” he said, taking in a big breath. Each container has a big label, displayed on its front, identifying what kind of coffee beans are stored in them. His company specializes in dark coffee. “I believe in developing the natural flavor of coffee by fully caramelizing the natural sugars to give a dark rich bittersweet flavor that some coffee drinkers are looking for,” as described on his website. “Some of themore expensive coffees of the world brag about the tea-like qualities of the coffee when roasted to a light city or cinnamon roast. I say if you want tea-like qualities then drink tea. If you are looking for a cup of coffee that is rich,

As you open the front door of Reginald “Reg” Coffey’s house, you are instantly enveloped by the sweet odour of coffee. In his kitchen, the man brews two fresh cups of coffee. The black liquid, made from Nicaragua Maracaturra beans, is quite tasteful and yet has a hint of boldness. “I had to learn how to become a coffee lover,” Coffey said. “I started offwith tea. I still drink tea, mind you, but I really love coffee.” Once the owner of amotorcycle, theman used to travel with a group of bikers. “They were really tough looking guys,” he said. “We’d often stop at TimHortons. I just didn’t feel right ordering a tea, so I would drink

black and bittersweet then you are in the right place.” In his little workshop, Coffey has everything he needs to fill a variety of orders. “Most of my buyers are from Ingleside or Cornwall, but I do have some in the United States and even out West.” The man also caters to several local restaurants. “I could start selling my coffee to several more establishments, but I’mnot equipped to roast that much coffee. I’d rather keep it small.” To further his coffee roasting knowledge, he attended the Coffee Training Institute in San Francisco. “They told me some things I already knew, but they taught me ways I had never even heard of.” With that, he quietly exits his workshop and makes his way towards another small room.Through a big window, a beamof hot sunlight illuminates the room, much to the delight of two tiresome looking felines lying on a couch. Next to the window is an odd-looking plant, one you certainly can’t find it in your backyard or in a nearby forest. It measures around 5 feet tall, bearing small red cherry looking fruits. “These are coffee cherries,” Coffey explained, grabbing a hold of them. “The coffee beans come from this fruit. I’ve always been fascinated as to why coffee in itself is so cheap, considering the amount of labor that is used to make it.” According to the coffee connoisseur, only about two countries utilize machinery to process the fruit. “I believe only Brazil and Jamaica use machines to separate the fruit from the bean,” he said, pondering. “The rest of the countries use actual labor, meaning someone is in the fields and picking only the ripe fruits, one by one.” Always been in the food industry The food industry sure isn’t a new thing for Coffey. Born and raised in Cornwall and a graduate from St. Lawrence College in 1975, he was recruited right out of college by the federal government and moved to Toronto to work in the lab at the Health Protection Branch of the Department of Health and Welfare, now called Health Canada. Over 30 some odd years, he has been employed in a wide variety of roles in the food industry: process development project leader, research scientist, analytical chemist, quality assurance manager and regulatory affairs manager, tomention a few. “I was a food technologist at one point,” he explained. “What I can say about the food industry is that it’s not about the product anymore. It’s about the marketing and the costs.” So what does the coffee expert think of the Keurig cups? “Well, I think you’ll never be able to put enough coffee in there to make a great tasting cup! I always put too much, it gives it a great taste.”

Des élèves du Pavillon intermédiaire de l’École secondaire catholique La Citadelle ont participé à un tournoi de badminton, organisé par le Conseil scolaire de district catholique de l’Est ontarien (CSDCEO). Rappelons que le badminton est un sport de raquette qui oppose soit deux joueurs ou joueuses (simples) ou deux paires (doubles), placés dans deux demi-terrains séparés par un filet. Les joueurs et joueuses marquent des points en frappant un volant à l’aide d’une raquette pour le faire tomber dans le demi-terrain adverse. L’échange se termine dès que le volant touche le sol, ou s’il y a faute. En photo, on reconnaît Justin Matte et Riley Lalonde, deux élèves de la Citadelle qui ont participé au tournoi. —photo fournie
