The Children’s Aid Society of the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glen- garry wants people to make some noise. The society is calling people out to Lamoureux Park on Sept. 29 for an “unfor- gettable” launch to help break the silence surrounding child abuse. The CAS wants to break the silence with a bang – namely the simultaneous bursting of paper bags – during its Purple Ribbon Launch to kick off its October child abuse prevention campaign. “At least 1,000 people would be great,” said CAS public relations manager Kimly Thivierge, who is organizing the event. “The only way to have it be good is to get people down (to the bandshell),” she said. Participation is the key for the event, which will emphasize the slogan for this year’s campaign: “Break the silence, use your voice.” In that vein, Thivierge wants people to blow up paper bags and then pop them at a set time to symbolize breaking the silence of child abuse. People at the event will have a chance to earn ballots for a Disney trip for a family of four, or two tickets to a sold-out show by Justin Bieber, simply by repeating the cam- paign slogan to the right person. There will be musical entertainment dur- ing the 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. event, including local musicians Graham Greer, Switchgear and Rodney Rivette. There will also be a Benson’s free lunch, face painting, inflatable balloons, yoga for kids, a Zumba party and

drumming sensation Rhythm Room. The launch kicks off a month of activities in October focused on eliminating child abuse, including a Community Dress Purple Day on Oct. 19 and a grand finale featuring grand scale illusionist Claude Haggerty at the Aultsville Theatre on Oct. 27. The CAS is also teaming up with local grocery stores beginning the end Friday to raise awareness of child abuse and collect food items for the Agape Centre. “We’re really pleased with the response. So far, we’ve got an excellent response,” Thivierge said during a meeting with a handful of grocers and sponsors on Thurs- day.

At least six stores will be participating in the food drive to end child hunger, includ- ing Baxtrom’s Your Independent Grocer, Justin’s No Frills and Giant Tiger. People will be able to donate at the cash register to allocate a specific food item to Agape. The donations will then be tallied and the food items allotted to the charity, according to early discussions about the event. Thivierge said the CAS decided upon the Apage food drive “because we wanted to be able to give back to the community.” Front-line staff at the stores will wear purple T-shirts from the CAS raising awareness of child abuse during the drive.

Teen brought gun to school

By Greg Kielec

A Cornwall teen has been accused of bringing a handgun to school after a student tipped off the school principal who then called police. The 17-year-old was arrested around 2:30 p.m. last Wednesday, after police learned the teen had attended school on Aug. 28 while carrying a concealed handgun. The gun – a real handgun, not a replica -- was not loaded, accord- ing to Cornwall police spokeswoman Const. Melanie Labelle. For more, please see next week’s edition of The Journal. Police seized the weapon and are still trying to determine how it was acquired by the teen. The teen, who faces a number of weapons charges in connection with the incident, was released to appear in court Sept. 20. In a separate incicent last Wednesday, a 34-year-old Cornwall man was arrested afterthree people were threatened and assault- ed with a pipe shortly before 3:30 a.m. Shaun Lafave is charged with assault, assault causing bodily harm, uttering death threats, three counts of assault with a weap- on, possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose and failing to comply with a recognizance. One of the victims, a 20-year-old man required medical treat- ment as a result of the assault.

“The warrant was executed without in- cident and the subjects were co-operative with police,” according to police spokes- woman Const. Melanie Labelle. Cory Michaud, 29 of Cornwall is charged with three counts of possession of a con- trolled substance, two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and posses- sion of property obtained by crime. He was held in custody to await a bail hearing. Irene Mondoux, 34 of Cornwall is charged with two counts of possession of a con- trolled substance and two counts of posses- sion for the purpose of trafficking. She was released to appear in court on Oct. 11. No other arrests are expected to be made in connection with the drug bust, Labelle said. The charges are the culmination of a three month investigation by the Cornwall/ Massena Border Enforcement Security Task- force and the Cornwall Regional Task Force. The following law enforcement agencies played an integral role in the investigation’s success: Cornwall & Greater Toronto Area (GTA) CBSA Enforcement & Intelligence Op- erations Divisions, the Akwesasne Mohawk Police Service, the Cornwall Community Po- lice Service, the Peel Regional Police Service and RCMP Toronto Immigration Task Force. Police allege that the family was trans- ported by land from the United Sates to Cornwall Island where they were subse- quently transported to Cornwall via boat across the St. Lawrence River. The family consisted of two adults and three children.

Canadian Blood Services would like to ex- press its gratitude to the Cornwall. Community for their overwhelming sup- port at the last Blood Donor Clinic located at the Civic Complex on September 4th. It is because of your generosity that we were able to collect 187 units of blood. We understand that some donors who attended this clinic did experience rather lengthy delays and were not able to com- plete their blood donation in the expected one hour timeframe. This was largely due to the volume of do- nors who attended the clinic. This did affect donation times and cre- ated some back-ups at the front end of the clinic. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused and would like to thank all the donors who chose to stay and complete their donation despite the circumstances.

The Suicide Prevention Coalition of Cham- plain East has launched– a new website to raise awareness and offer better suicide prevention education in communities across eastern Ontario. The website was officially launched on Monday, coinciding with World Suicide Prevention Day. The site offers information about where and how to get help, how to reach out, re- sources and training opportunities. “We truly believe that this website will be a tool to help create suicide-safer com- munities through suicide prevention strate- gies,” said Robyn Hurtubise, manager of the Injury Prevention Program at the Eastern Ontario Health Unit.

Churches to pay homage to founder John Bethune

the Royal Highland Emigrants and the loy- alist settlers in the area. In August 1779, he was transferred to Montreal to serve as chaplain to the 1st bat-

Canada. Bethune moved to Williamstown in Glen- garry County where he ministered to the Highland loyalist settlers. He and his wife

army chaplain. The Marriage Act of 1793 allowed only clergy from the Church of England and Justices of the Peace to perform marriages. In March 1796, Bethune and the Presbyte- rians in Grenville County sent a petition to Lieutenant Governor Simcoe complaining about the act. When Simcoe reported the matter to the Home Secretary, he noted that criticisms of the marriage act were only the beginning; he believed that Bethune was a loyal person, and soon, there would be a request for the partition of the land set apart for the “National Clergy.” Simcoe was correct, and in 1811, Bethune was given a second land grant of a town lot in Cornwall. Bethune enjoyed a peaceful relationship with the Reverend Alexander McDonnell, but often warned his flock that while they should live in peace with their Roman Cath- olic neighbours, they should not embrace their beliefs. In addition, he was a close friend to John Strachan, an Anglican clergy- man who taught school in Cornwall from 1803 to 1812. Bethune’s sons attended Strachan’s classes, and two of them became Anglican ministers since Bethune could not send them to Scotland for their education. Bethune taught school in Cornwall from 1812 to 1814, and served as a chaplain with the British forces lead by George Richard John Macdonell in the 1813 attack on Og- densburg, N.Y. Although in poor health, he was appointed road commissioner for the Eastern District in June 1815. A few days before his death that same year, he beseeched his Williamstown congregation to find an assistant minister. He feared that without one, the Roman Catholic Church would grow more powerful and lure them away from the Church of Scotland. Bethune is remembered as one of Canada’s most honoured pioneer Church of Scotland min- isters. Bethune’s sons went on to great deeds: John, first Canadian-born Anglican minister, Principal of McGill University and Dean of Montreal; Alexander Neil, Anglican Bishop of Toronto; James Gray, a banker; Donald, founder of a shipping firm and politician; Norman, King’s Auctioneer at Montreal, and Angus, Chief Factor of the Hudson’s Bay Company, great-grandfather to Dr. Norman Bethune who developed the first mobile blood transfusion while fighting in the Spanish Civil War, 1936 and was one of the heroes of the Chinese revolution. Elder Irwin Bethune of St. John’s, Cornwall, was one of Dr. Bethune’s descendants.


Four area churches will come together on Sunday to pay home to their founder Rev. John Bethune in a 225 th Anniversary Communion Service. The service in memory of Bethune, who founded four are Presbyterian churches in 1787, including St. John’s Presbyterian in Cornwall, will be held at 7 p.m. at the Corn- wall church followed by a social hour in the McLellan Room . The three other churches founded by Bet- hune – Salem United Church in Summer- stown, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Lanaster and St. Andrew’s United Church in Williamstown – will join in the celebration. Salem United Church in Summerstown and St. Andrew’s Williamstown were for- merly Presbyterian, before joining Church Union in 1925 when the United Church was established. John Bethune, born in Brebost, on the Isle of Skye, in Scotland in 1751, was the son of Angus Bethune and Christian Campbell of Scalpay, whose father was the man who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape from Scotland following the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Although his father was descended from the lairds of Balfour, John’s early years were spent in poverty, according to information compiled by organizers of the celebration from a government website on Canadian history.. In 1770, the Synod of Glenelg, at the re- quest of the Presbytery of Skye, granted his family £5 to help meet the expenses of John’s education at King’s College from which he graduated with a BA and an MA. He returned to his home in 1772, and was licenced as a Church of Scotland minister. In July 1773, he and members of his ex- tended family immigrated to North Caro- lina, a colony settled by Highlanders dis- placed following the 1745 rebellion. In June of 1775, John was recruited as the chaplain to the 1st battalion of the Royal Highland Emigrants. He fought in the battle of Moore’s Creek Bridge in February 1776, where he was captured and imprisoned. He was held in Philadelphia until October when he and other prisoners were released to rejoin their families. From there, he made his way to Halifax in 1778, where he served briefly as chaplain to the 2nd battalion of

talion, performing his regular duties to his regiment, as well as celebrating marriages and baptisms for the military personnel of other regiments. As there was no Presby- terian church in the city, Bethune attended services conducted by the Anglican rector of Montreal. In 1782, he married Véronique Waddens of Montreal. Bethune and his wife were stationed at the garrison on Carleton Island in New York State until the regiment was demobilized. He returned to Montreal in 1786 where he lived on his military pay, but continued to perform marriages and baptisms for army personnel and Presbyterian Scots, Dutch, and German loyalists. On March 12, 1786, Bethune conducted the first Presbyterian service in Montreal in a rented room on Notre Dame Street. He continued to min- ister to his “congregation” until May 1787, when, at the invitation of a group of Scot- tish settlers, he moved west to an area of the country soon to become Upper Canada. Although his Montreal congregation did not last long, it is considered to be the pre- decessor of the St Gabriel Street Church, the mother church of Presbyterianism in

raised six sons, three daughters and an ad- opted daughter. Look for part II of the John Bethune story in August. Residing in Williamstown, Bethune’s abil- ity to preach in Gaelic made him popular with his new parishioners as well as those in neighbouring Lancaster, and Cornwall, where he preached, built congregations, and oversaw the construction of simple log churches. Prior to his death, Bethune saw the log church in Williamstown be replaced by a stone building. Bethune’s living expenses came from his congregations until 1789 when he was giv- en a £50 annual salary by the local govern- ment. Unfortunately, this was discontinued with the formation of the province of Up- per Canada. Presbyterians from the coun- ties of Glengarry and Stormont, angered by this, protested to the government that Bethune was “not a recent adventurer, but a gentleman of approved Loyalty and that his government salary was necessary to keep him above want, and consequently above contempt.”Their protest was successful: the salary was reinstated and he was awarded 2,000 acres of land for his services as an

Conservation authority maintaining low water advisory amid reports of dry wells

With wells running dry in some rural ar- eas, South Nation Conservation’s Water Response Team is maintaining the Level 2 low water condition advisory. “A Level 2 low water condition means a minor water supply problem has been de- tected,” said Sandra Mancini, SNC’s director

of planning and engineering. The recent weather conditions have de- creased streamflows throughout the wa- tershed to less than 30 per cent of normal levels for this time of year. At a meeting on Sept. 4, South Nation Conservation’s Water Response Team re-

viewed rainfall, streamflow, and water level conditions, and decided to continue the Level 2 status. While the three-month precipitation in- dicators correspond to Level 1 low water thresholds, streamflow indicators suggest a Level 3 low water condition. Rainfall fore-

casts predict normal precipitation over the next three months, but higher seasonal temperatures will continue to impact water levels throughout the watershed. Several dry wells and dry well related inquires have been reported by property owners to SNC.


Becoming economist ‘best accident I ever had’

By Lisa Runions

Inco Limited. Sauve has also served as a director of business economics with the Crown Invest- ments Corporation in Regina, is the found- er, owner and president of the Sask-Trends Monitor in Regina, and was a weekly col- umnist for Saskatoon Star-Phoenix, and the Regina Leader-Post. He has also taught for the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technol- ogy, the University of Saskatchewan, and at Camosun College in Victoria and he has been running his own consulting firm, Peo- ple Patterns Consulting since 1996. Sauve has more than 35 books, reports, and articles he has written, which have re- ceived notoriety across the country. He publishes the annual Canada Job Trends which looks at National and Provin- cial Labour markets, has written several re- ports for the Vanier Institute of the Family, and has written documents for the Office of Consumer Affairs, Industry Canada just to name a few. “I have always tried to write and speak so that people can understand the reality of their world or community,”Sauve explained. But Sauve is more than an economics guru. He is also a family man, a writer-poet, and a motorcyclist. Sauve said his dad, Adelard, had the greatest influence on his life. “He taught me to always be honest in my dealings with others. Being honest may have cost me a few deals, contracts, friends, and even long-term relationships but it leaves my spirit free and light.” “I have reached the age of 68 with a clear mind and a fairly healthy body. That is an important accomplishment and I consider myself a lucky person.” service and interment. The operators have also harkened to the history of the funeral home with a neat touch near the building’s front entrance. Old brick from the building’s past has been unveiled in main hallway as a testament to the funeral home’s heritage. Local MPP Jim McDonell noted the im- portance of creating a comfortable setting for people during a time of grieving so they feel “almost like you’re home”. He also lauded the economic impact of such a successful small business. “It’s always great to see a small business growing in the community,” he said. Local MP Guy Lauzon said it is “wonder- ful” to see a local business growing. “You’ve done a remarkable job with this building,” he added. City councillor Andre Rivette, standing in for Mayor Bob Kilger, said the funeral home has “a great team in place” while noting the institution has “been around for a long time”.

If Roger Sauve had to choose one accom- plishment or success story in his life, it would be the launching and national tour of his first book, “Canadian People Pat- terns”which was released in 1989. That year he hit cities across Canada just a few days behind Pierre Berton. “Admit- tedly his book sold more copies than mine,” chuckles Sauve. Born in 1944, and raised in the small Glen- garry hamlet of Fassifern, Sauve was the fourth child in a family of six. “We moved around a lot living in St. Isidore, Sudbury, Lochiel and then Alexan- dria. I was raised on a dairy farm and in a family where the positive attitudes of my parents overcame difficult times.” “When faced with a bad situation, the question was what can you do to correct it, fix it and then move on. This inspired me my whole life, and as a result I am a positive person in all I do,” Suave said. This does not mean, however, that I am always successful in what I try.” Sauve attended university to study politi- cal science, inspired by his time on student council in high school in Alexandria. But he instead ended up studying economics. “That was the best accident I ever had,” said Sauve. “I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelor of Social Sciences in 1968, and followed up with a Masters in Economics in 1969, and never looked back.” “In spite of its challenges I have never found the profession hard. Over the years I have evolved into a corporate planner, a de- mographer, a market researcher, a writer, a newspaper columnist, a college and univer- sity instructor and even a used book seller. A number of dignitaries were on hand for the official opening of the newly reno- vated McArthur Bros & MacNeil Funeral Home and Chapel in Cornwall on Friday. The 428 Second Street East funeral home, purchased by Bonnie Parker in April 2010, has undergone extensive renovations over the past six months. That work was lauded by politicians from three levels of government at a 1 p.m. rib- bon cutting at the funeral home’s front en- trance.

GREG KIELEC A haunting production of A Nice Family Gathering

A Nice Family Gathering doesn’t have the star appeal of the 1990 Hollywood tear- jerker Ghost, starring Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze. But it does have one thing in common – an unexpected visitor from the other side. The latest offering from Upper Canada Playhouse centers around a Thanksgiving dinner at the Lundeen family home, the first such gathering since the family’s patriarch passed away unexpectedly. Much like the Hollywood blockbuster, un- settled business keeps Dad in A Nice Family Gathering from entering the sweet hereaf- ter. But that is where the plots diverge; in Ghost, Sam targets his love Molly to send her warnings from beyond, but in family gathering, Dad chooses the black sheep of the family, his son Carl. The resulting chaos when Carl, played by Richard Bauer, realizes he is still being haunted by his Dad, much like he was in real life, makes for some great entertainment. But the play is not without its serious mo- ments, especially as it wends its way to its conclusion. In an especially touching mo- ment, Mom, played by Linda Goranson, desperately reaches out for her departed husband, played by Doug Tangney, as the son Carl acts as a channel between the two. It is a heart wrenching moment played so convincingly by the three principals that many in the audience could be seen dab- bing their eyes as a quiet a pall fell over the theatre. But the somberness is only tempo- rary – moments later the family returns to its typical joie de vivre to deliver an upbeat ending to the story. Rounding out the cast are Jamie Williams, who plays the successful son, Michael, his emotional wife Jill, played with aplomb by Kate Gordon, and the oft-overlooked sister, Stacy, played by Liz Gilroy. Adding to the drama is Jerry, played by Don Ciaschini, a family friend and old golf- ing partner of dearly departed Dad, who becomes suspected of ulterior motives in his friendship with Mom. The Cornwall Motor Speedway had their annual Fireball Enduro, the ‘’WWE of rac- ing on Sunday. More than 300 cars were in the pits to participate in the different events involving four, six and eight-cylinder powered cars. The afternoon started with the 50-lap la- dies event. Jodi Pynenburg was the fastest of 39 entrants and won her second feature in a row after winning in 2011. The men`s six-cylinder then took the track

The Phil Olsen comedy was originally pro- duced in Los Angeles at The Group Reperto- ry Theatre, where it received an LA WEEKLY Pick of theWeek. It went on to be produced at the famous Groundlings Theatre as well as in Rochester, Minn. at the national play- wright competition. A field of 47 cars took green in the 50-lap eight-cylinder feature race. The event also proved to be tough on cars with only 10 of the entrants completing the race won by former street stock regular, Jody Beckstead. The fifth and final feature of the day saw 65 cars jockeying for position in the second four-cylinder race. Regular mini-stock run- ner Mathieu Aubin won the final race of 2012.

The play has its serious moments as fam- ily members wrestle with their own ghosts from the past, but there is plenty of levity, much of it via one-liners deadpanned with ease by Goranson, often at the expense of one of her children.

Shows are Tuesdays through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sun- with 73 cars taking the initial green for 50 laps of mayhem. A few red flags slowed the feature race and fewer than 10 cars were able to com- plete the race. Patrick Taillon was the win- ner. The first of two 50-lap four-cylinder fea- tures was next with 75 drivers on the dirt for the initial green. The race, won by Shane Hamel, was completed rather quickly with no major incidents.

DIRECTIONS: Put the leeks and water into a large bowl, cover and cook for 5-6 minutes on high. Remove half the leeks with a slotted spoon and set aside. Purée the remaining leeks and cooking liquid in a blender. Pour back into the bowl and add the tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, celery seeds and garlic powder. Cover and cook for 3-4 minutes on high until hot, stirring once during cooking. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Levée de fonds pour la petite Madison Primeau COMMUNAUTAIRE

Photo courtoisie

Madison Primeau, une jeune fille pleine de vie âgée de 7 ans, qui doit surmonter un défi de taille.

Mais ce qui diffère ici, c’est qu’en juillet dernier, on a diagnostiqué chez Madi- son un cancer du cerveau. Depuis cet été, elle vit à l’Hôpital pour enfants de l’Est ontarien (CHEO). Son professeur de gymnastique, comme toute l’école d’ailleurs, est sous le choc. «C’est la plus gentille et la plus douce des petites filles du monde», ra- conte Micheline Martel. L’école Ste-Lucie

et la communauté se sont donné la main et ont décidé de faire une levée de fonds afin d’aider la famille de Madison. Le père de la petite a mis en veilleuse son travail pour rester avec sa fille à l’hôpital. La mère, elle, est restée à Cornwall pour s’occuper des deux petits frères jumeaux de Madison. «Chaque année, nous faisons la course Terry Fox, mais cette année est spéciale. Nous al- lons courir pour Madison et pour aider sa drons les mesures nécessaires pour éviter que cela ne se reproduise à l’avenir. La pro- chaine collecte de sang au Complexe civique aura lieu le 2 octobre 2012. Pre- nez rendez-vous sans tarder en composant le 1866 JE DONNE. Votre générosité nous permettra de répondre aux besoins trans- fusionnels. Carolyn Boucher, coordonnatrice du développement communautaire.

famille», lance Micheline. Madison a subi une opération en juillet mais les métastases au cerveau ne se sont pas toutes résorbées. Elle devra subir des séances douloureuses de chimiothérapie. Ainsi, le 14 septembre, à 12h45, l’école et la communauté courront pour Madison dans le même état d ‘esprit que la course de Terry Fox. «Nous voulons lui donner du courage, tout comme Terry Fox en avait.»
