Rivette to be ambushed in a closed coun- cil session for speaking with the meeting. Rivette recently accused council of breach- ing the closed meeting rules again, despite an earlier pledge by Mayor Kilger to follow guidelines laid about by Fournier. Kilger said Cornwall is not alone in facing the challenge of replacing experienced se- nior staff. “The need to plan for succession in light of retirements and an overall aging work- force is something that every corporation in Canada is facing,” he said. The CAO is a critical liaison between council and the city staff who provide the day-to-day services to the community, he stressed. “It is important that we begin working now to ensure that we have a replacement for the CAO.” City planner Stephen Alexander has been appointed acting CAO during this transition period.He is currently the general manager of planning, parks and recreation. Alexander will perform the day-to-day responsibilities of the CAO position during this transitional period. Fitzpatrick will be taking unused vacation time and his management leave is part of a staged retirement process, according to the city. Fitzpatrick will continue to be avail- able to the city and will provide assistance on transitional and other issues that may arise, according to the city. One of the key objectives of the transitional process is the recruitment of a new CAO, according to the city. A ban on open air burning remains in ef- fect in the neighbouring municipalities of South Glengarry and South Stormont. Outdoor fires are permitted only between sunset and sunrise, must be kept small, must be supervised at all times by an adult, and must be extinguished when there is no supervision or when the fire is finished. Only clean, cured wood is to be used for burning.

Cornwall’s embattled chief administrative officer will spent his remaining months with the city on vacation. Paul Fitzpatrick, who earned $183,000 as the city’s top employee last year, will be on “management leave” until his retirement on Jan. 31, 2013, according to a press release issued by the city. Mayor Bob Kilger announced in June that Fitzpatrick would retire after 28 years with the city of Cornwall, six of those as CAO. Council will be asked Aug. 13 to approve re- cruiting for Fitzpatrick’s replacement. Fitzpatrick is the highest ranking city of- ficial in an exodus that began with former Glen Stor Dun Lodge administrator Donna Derouchie last July. Since then, the city has fired human resources manager Robert Me- nagh and city clerk Denise Labelle-Gelinas has announced her impending retirement. Over the same time period, a council- lor – Leslie O’Shaughnessy – resigned over frustration with a lack of information from administration on key council decisions and the city lost a human rights decision in- volving a former employee and was found guilty of retaliating against another city em- ployee who had reported a case of abuse at Glen Stor Dun Lodge.. The city was also criticized earlier this year by closed-meeting investigator Stephen Fournier for allowing Councillor Andre The Cornwall Fire Department has lifted the ban on outdoor fires in the city. The outdoor fire ban was originally issued on July 16 due to extremely dry conditions. Residents still must obtain an open air burning permit from the fire department before having any outdoor fires on their property, according to city spokesman Kev- in Lajoie.

But when the members activated their emergency lights of their marked police in order to intercept the suspects, one of the drivers accelerated and rammed his four- wheeler head on into a police vehicle and then fled into the woods.

Seaway Lions Ribfest drew 40,000 to 50,000 Crowd members listen to live music at Lamoureux Park in Cornwall during Ribfest 2012, which attracted thousands more people than expected by organizers.

To the editor:

and a few minor suggestions. Overall everyone seemed pleased and demanded that we have the same event next year. People say they were pleased with the entertainment, food, midway, sound and prices. I think we did things right since all of our vendors want to return next year. It was very satisfying to see families en- joying their time at ribfest. On Saturday evening I looked out and there was not a spot left for anybody to sit and the sidewalks were full and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and that was very satisfying. The Cornwall Seaway Lions Club would like to thank all the people in the area for supporting us.

We held our first annual ribfest and when we began planning we had hoped to at- tract 10,000 to 15,000 attendees to our event. We have been informed that we had be- tween 13,000 to 15,000 people attend on Friday night. We were blessed with great weather, great volunteers and an amazing turnout. 50,000 visitors I have been informed that we had some- where between 40,000 to 50,000 people at- tend our event. The rib vendors(ribbers) were so over- whelmed that they found out that they had not taken enough ribs or chicken with them and had to arrange overnight shipments for both Saturday and Sunday. They also had to purchase a lot of chicken locally. We received nothing but compliments,

Tiny Table brings taste of Vietnam to

Cornwall is home to a new service – 123 Delivery. “It is just that easy – you call, we pick-up, we deliver,” said co-owner Stefan Feyrer. “Our focus is on business, for local deliveries as well as out of town.” “We currently go to Brockville, Kingston, Ottawa, Peace Tree Trade Centre on Corn- wall Island and Montreal with documents and various sized packages.” The business 123 Delivery has contracted with seven different local restaurants to sat- isfy their delivery needs, in addition to busi- ness deliveries. And 123 Delivery currently employs eight employees full time and/or part-time, and predicts that it will soon have up to 15 em- ployees. “We pride ourselves in offering reason- ably priced deliveries to your door”, said co- owner Trevor Walker. “Our employees are uniformed and, we guarantee that our service will be efficient, friendly and respectable.” Using cell phones and bluetooth com- munication technology for dispatch will provide prompt service and will ensure that the company operates within the law, the business assures. The delivery service will pick up at residences, or any business, pharmacy, convenience store, coffee shop or mall. “It is wonderful to see local entrepreneurs successfully creating jobs the way that 123 Delivery has, ” said Candy Pollard, business consultant with the Cornwall Business En- terprise Centre. “We commend both Mr. Walker and Mr. Feyrer for taking a business idea, developing and moving forward with it.” 123 Delivery operates on Sunday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday to Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Thursday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. It also operates most statutory holidays from noon to 5 p.m. Deliveries: Easy As 123

The doors at Tiny Table have only been open for a week or so, but the new res- taurant in Downtown Cornwall is already starting to build a loyal following. “We were getting the sign up outside and people were already walking in,” said owner Ubon Sattaboot with a smile. “The response has been great so far.” Located at 11 Fourth Street West (across from the main city fire hall), Tiny Table spe- cializes in pho, a popular Vietnamese soup made with chicken broth, gluten-free rice noodles and pieces of chicken, beef or shrimp, complemented with a side of hot sauce and bean sprouts. The dessert menu features Mango with Sticky Rice, a classic Thai dish, as well as an Italian dish, Tiramisu. The unique menu reflects the restaurant owners themselves – Mrs. Sattaboot is originally from Thailand while her husband, Santo Carruba, hails from Italy. It’s a true family-run operation, with Mrs. Sattaboot’s son, Jamie Giamei, and his girl- friend, Tabby, helping out at the business on a daily basis. The great food is complemented by a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere with- in the restaurant. There are a few tables for dine-in guests and the restaurant also offers take-out. In addition, the front of the establishment is home to The Grey House, featuring a va- riety of homemade and imported products such as bracelets and necklaces. For Sattaboot, Tiny Table represents the realization of a dream that has been in the making for several years. She spent a considerable amount of time researching the potential of opening a Thai and Vietnamese restaurant in Cornwall. At first, Sattaboot was exploring an- other possible location before de- ciding to open the business in the current property, which they own. Sattaboot said the family moved to Corn- wall in 2000 in order for Jamie to complete his schooling, and they figured they would

live here for a year or so. “But we fell in love with the place,” she said. “We just couldn’t leave anymore.” Sattaboot said she’s thrilled to be located in Downtown Cornwall, which is quickly be- coming a dining destination thanks to the numerous restaurants in the area. “It’s like a little community within a com- munity,” she said. “Hopefully, we will be able to attract more people Downtown.” Tiny Table is open Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays from 11:30 am to 9 pm, Fri- days and Saturdays from 11:30 am to 10 pm and Sundays from 11:30 am to 8 pm.

These pancakes are made with a whole-wheat batter and are filled with a delicious fruit mix- ture.

INGREDIENTS: • 115 g (4 oz) / 250 ml (1 cup) plain whole-meal flour • 300 ml (1/2 pint) / 300 ml (1 1/4 cups) skimmed milk • 1 egg, beaten • 15 ml (1 tbsp) sunflower oil, plus extra for greasing • Half-fat crème fraîche, to serve (optional) • Toasted nuts or sesame seeds, for sprinkling (optional) Filling: • 450 g (1 lb) cooking apples • 225 g (8 oz) blackcurrants • 30-45 ml (2-3 tbsp) water • 30 ml (2 tbsp) demerara sugar


DIRECTIONS: To make the pancake batter, put the flour in a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Add a little of the milk with the egg and the oil. Beat the flour into the liquid, then gradually beat in the rest of the milk, keeping the batter smooth and free from lumps. Cover the batter and chill while you prepare the filling. Quarter, peel and core the apples. Slice them into a pan and add the blackcurrants and water. Cook over a gentle heat for 10-15 minutes until the fruit is soft. Stir in enough demerara sugar to sweeten. Lightly grease a non-stick pan with just a smear of oil. Heat the pan, pour in about 30 ml (2 tbsp) of the batter, swirl it around and cook for about 1 minute. Flip the pancake over with a palette knife and cook the other side. Put on a sheet of kitchen paper and keep hot while cooking the remaining pancakes. Fill the pancakes with the apple and blackcurrant mixture and roll them up. Serve with a dollop of crème fraîche, if using, and sprinkle with nuts or sesame seeds, if liked.


HOW TO PLAY: Fill in the grid so that every row, every column, and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: You must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column, or 3x3 box .

Friday Spin Days at Pioneer Museum

The Twistle Guild of Glengarry is joining forces with the Glengarry Pioneer Muse- um to present weekly demonstrations of spinning and weaving at the museum in Dunvegan. The spinning demonstrations will be held every Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Glengarry Pioneer Museum. Visitors, both children and adults, will have the opportunity to see and participate in the early pioneer art of taking raw wool through the process of carding, spinning, weaving, knitting, and sewing. “It looks like an old fashioned working bee every Friday in the Williams Pavilion,” said Jennifer Black, museum curator. “At least a dozen spinners and weavers have been gathering each week to spin wool and offer information and guidance to anyone interested in trying this heritage craft. You are even invited to bring along your own wheel, drop spindle, or loom if you need some help.” The Glengarry Pioneer Museum holds a large collection of spinning and weaving ar- tifacts which are on display throughout the summer in the new exhibit:“The Creation of Cloth”. The Twistle Guild partnered with the mu-

seum to clean and preserve these pieces for the new and improved exhibit. Guild members have put countless hours into stringing not one, but two large floor looms – one dates from the late 19th centu- ry and the second is on loan from the Guild to be used for demonstrations and to allow members of the public to try their hand at weaving. During the recent Quilt and Textile day at the museum, Oliane Van Dyke came to the museum to see the display and was moved to tears upon seeing the large floor loom decked out as if it was still in use. Van Dyke’s mother, Florimond Legault donated the loom to the museum in the 1960s, where at the time it practically filled one room in the upstairs of the small Star Inn. The Legault family lived on Concession 1 of Lochiel Township in Glengarry County and would weave mats and other textiles for their home, as well as give some to neighbours. The remaining activities for the season are the fourth annual Wood Fair and Auction on Aug. 25, the Harvest Fall Festival on Sept. 16 and lastly, going out with a boom, the War of 1812 Reenactment on Sept. 22-23.

Un niveau d’eau très bas pour les lacs et rivières

roches qui sont habituellement profondes causent de sérieux problèmes à la naviga- tion de petites embarcations puisqu’elles sont pratiquement à la surface», poursuit-il. Comme il a très peu neigé, ici, l’hiver derni- er, et que la pluie se fait rare, les étendues d’eau baissent rapidement. Selon Environnement Canada, la situation ne changera pas de sitôt. Le peu d’eau qui est tombée et qui tombera ne suffira pas à remplir suffisamment les lacs et rivières, et n’humidifiera pas la terre en profondeur. à Enfin, il est fortement recommandé de ne pas trop arroser son terrain afin d’éviter toute pénurie. spécial, disponible dans les centres de ser- vices municipaux, et de garder cette eau au réfrigérateur. “La seule façon de savoir si l’eau est saine, c’est en la testant. Il n’y a aucun moyen de le savoir en la regardant ou la sentant”, de dire Caroline Kuate, del’Unité de Santé de l’Est de l’Ontario. Les résidents de la région de Cornwall peuvent également faire tester leur eau. L’Unité de santé de l’est de l’Ontario sou- ligne qu’il n’y a aucune limite quant au nombre d’échantillons que les citoyens peuvent soumettre. De nombreux résidents de cette région, en grande partie rurale, comptent sur des puits. Ils sont invités à faire tester leur eau sur une base régulière.


CORNWALL - Le niveau de l’eau a con- sidérablement baissé ces dernières se- maines en raison de la sécheresse qui sé- vit en Ontario et ailleurs au Canada. «Le niveau de l’eau est descendu de plus de 30 cm», confie Alain Vachon, propriétaire d’un hors-bord. La situation devient très critique. La mise à l’eau et la sortie d’eau des bateaux de plaisance est délicate. Les

Les Cornwalliens sont invités à tester leur eau

OTTAWA - Santé publique Ottawa recom- mande aux propriétaires de puits de faire tester leur eau, alors que la sécheresse perdure dans la région. Les bactéries nuisibles, comme L’E. coli et la salmonelle, peuvent en effet proliférer dans l’eau chaude et peu profonde. En période de sécheresse, les puits peu- vent être exposés à davantage de ris- ques. “Les bactéries peuvent entrer dans l’aquifère par les zones marécageuses ou lorsque le niveau d’eau varie. Elles peuvent ensuite se retrouver dans l’eau que les rési- dents consomment”, explique Martha Rob- inson, inspectrice pour Santé publique Ot- tawa. La Ville précise que tester un échantillon est gratuit. Il suffit de remplir un contenant

Un jardin biologique pour le Centre Agapè et un besoin de soutien


C’est en 2010 que le Centre Agapè, de Cornwall, inaugurait son tout nouvel es- pace vert afin de distribuer des légumes aux familles dans le besoin. Aujourd’hui, le jardin est toujours là et les bénévoles continuent de l’entretenir mal- gré la sécheresse qui sévit. Existant depuis maintenant 41 ans, le Centre Agapè, banque alimentaire et ma- térielle, a une idée en tête et compte bien atteindre son but, soit celui de fournir plus de produits santé aux nécessiteux. Gra- cieusement prêté par la Fountaingate Chris- tian Assembly, le terrain de cinq acres n’est cultivé par le Centre que sur trois quart du terrain. La raison? Un manque de bé- névoles. Malgré tout, une vingtaine d’entre eux gravitent autour de ce grand espace vert en désherbant, en entretenant la terre et en cueillant les produits verts, et cela, à raison d’une fois par semaine. Avant eux, ils étaient 25 bénévoles à avoir planté des to- mates, carottes, fèves vertes, concombres, piments verts, citrouilles, etc.

Toujours à la recherche d’argent, le Centre organise une levée de fonds, le 24 août pro- chain, au cœur même du jardin. «Nous vou- lons que les habitants de Cornwall voient notre jardin, qu’ils y croient», lance-t-elle. Un encan aura lieu lors de cette journée. L’argent amassé, ainsi que celui de la vente des billets, sera entièrement versé à l’achat de nourriture et à l’entretien du jardin.

Chaque mois, ce sont quelque 1 000 personnes qui transitent par le Centre Agapè pour nourrir correcte- ment leur famille, et 40 % sont des enfants. Mais le Centre a toujours besoin d’aide,

de toute sorte. «Ça serait vraiment incroy- able si des gens bien nantis de la commu- nauté venaient nous prêter main forte, et pourquoi pas les pompiers qui viendraient arroser notre jardin qui sèche dramatique- ment. Nous n’avons pas de pression d’eau», poursuit Carilyne Hébert. L’un des rêves de la jeune femme : l’embauche d’un étudiant en horticulture pour l’été afin de prendre soin du projet.

Bientôt 20 ans de succès pour le Festival de la Curd ARTS & CULTURE


L’affiche officielle 2012 du Festival.

Plusieurs activités et spectacles sont au programme pendant ces cinq jours de fes- tivités.

ST-ALBERT - Le Festival de la Curd annuel de la Fromagerie coopéra- tive St-Albert aura lieu du 15 au 19 août pro- chain. Cet événement a fait beaucoup de che- min depuis ses débuts voilà 15 ans. Ce qui n’était au départ qu’un rendez-vous local pour remercier les clients de la fromagerie s’est transformé en un gi- gantesque événement régional. Créé en 1994 pour cé- lébrer le centenaire de la fromagerie, le Festival gagne rapidement en popularité et l’équipe de bénévoles grandit et s’adjoint les services de Roger Cayer pour les relations publiques. L’objectif est alors de publiciser l’événement au maximum. Au cours des années 2000, le Festival prend véritablement sa vitesse de croisière. St-Albert devient l’hôte d’artistes de renom. À compter de 2003, on ajoute une dé- gustation de fromage au programme. Et en 2006, on ajoute le rodéo pour les

amateurs de sensations fortes.

L’événement accueille alors jusqu’à 25 000 personnes venant du Québec, du sud de l’Ontario et du nord des États-Unis. Si les nouvelles attractions encouragent une plus grande participation, l’occasion de savourer quelque trois tonnes de fromage en grains demeure l’un des attraits principaux. En 2008, les organisateurs se payent les services d’un directeur général aguerri au chapitre des festivals francophones : Daniel Simoncic. Ce dernier a dirigé plusieurs fes- tivals au fil des ans, notamment le Festival franco-ontarien d’Ottawa, la Franco-Fête de Toronto ainsi que le Festival de montgol- fières de Gatineau autrefois. L’année d’après, le labyrinthe géant s’ajoute à la programmation. D’une superfi- cie de 8334 pi2, il est alors constitué de 300 tonnes de foin et dissimule un mini zoo – l’installation comprenant un volet éducatif. Le virage le plus important arrive finale- ment en 2011 avec la création du défi in- tervillages. Réunissant alors quatre villages de l’Est ontarien (Embrun, Casselman, St- Albert et Bourget), il s’apparente à une série d’épreuves visant à valoriser la ruralité. à Un an plus tard, l’expérience est recon- duite avec deux villages supplémentaires et même érigée comme l’événement phare du Festival. Aujourd’hui, le nombre de visiteurs a ex- plosé pour atteindre un record de 35 000 personnes en 2011. L’histoire n’a sans doute pas fini de s’écrire pour le Festival.

Plus fougueuse et énergique que jamais, l’icône fémi- nine du rock québécois sera de passage à St-Albert pour présenter son spectacle « Premier baiser ». Elle vous fera rire, chanter, crier et danser sur une combinaison de ses meilleurs succès! À la fois tendre et rock, vous déguster- ez ce spectacle tout comme l’on savoure son premier baiser.


Concours et exposition de photos

CORNWALL - C’est du 23 août au 5 octobre, à la Galerie régionale des Arts de Cornwall, que se tiendra une exposition de photos. Mais, juste avant, les photographes ama- teurs ont jusqu’au 11 août pour participer au concours de photos et présenter trois de leurs œuvres. Lancé il y a trois ans, le concours de pho- tos, suivi de l’exposition, attire de plus en plus de fous de la photo. Chaque année, ils sont environ 60 candidats à présenter leurs prises de vue dans le but de mettre la main sur l’un des quatre prix distribués. Les juges évalueront la composition (ce que la photo représente), l’imagination, la création, et la technique (luminosité, contraste). Ils jugeront chaque œuvre et choisiront les trois meilleures pièces. Le 13 août, les juges feront la sélection des pièces acceptées dans l’exposition, et le 23 août seront alors dévoilés les gagnants du con- cours. Le quatrième prix accordé, celui du public, sera quant à lui annoncé le 5 octo- bre prochain. Toutes les grandeurs sont acceptées et tous types de photos aussi. «Elle peuvent ou non être manipulées, explique l’assistant directeur, Vincent Pilon. La photo, c’est com- me peindre avec la luminosité. Au premier coup d’œil, le résultat doit parler à celui qui la scrute. Et, bien souvent, la simplicité est

le meilleur des outils.» Bien entendu, avec les moyens actuels, le photographe amateur a la possibilité de mod- ifier ou d’ajouter des éléments, comme avec photoshop. «Mais at- tention, on doit quand même reconnaître que c’est une photo», de préciser la directrice Sylvie Lizotte. Enfin, les partici- pants exposants doi- vent présenter leurs clichés déjà encadrés et prêts à être accro- chés au mur.
