Catharines, Kingston and Toronto. “Governments have told us that educa- tion was a key tool in the war on illegal ciga- rettes,” said Dave Bryans, CEO of the Ontario Convenience Stores Association. “Our goal with these billboards is to educate the pub- lic and draw their attention to the fact that contraband tobacco is illegal and comes in many forms.” “Illegal tobacco not only harms small businesses, it harms the community by bypassing the tough regulation and age- checks designed to prevent minors from getting access to tobacco.” Contraband smokes, manufactured in Canada illegally or smuggled from the Unit- ed States, rob the government of millions of dollars in tax revenue, according to the OCSA.


The Ontario Convenience Store Associa- tion is taking its protest against contra- band tobacco to the streets. The association has erected a billboard along Ninth Street near Brookdale Avenue, one of the city’s main arteries, warning passersby not to be taken in by the lure of the cheap illegal smokes. “Don’t be fooled!,” the billboard reads. “Il- legal smokes come in baggies …and packs. If you’re caught, you will be fined.” Punctuating the warning is an OCSA logo next to the message: “Buying contraband is illegal and harms the community.” The 10-week bill- board campaign

As many as one-third of cigarettes smoked in Ontario are contra- band and the Ontario government estimates contraband smokes are costing it $500 mil- lion annually in lost tax revenue, according to the OCSA. The RCMP has

Classes resume September 4, with or without deal

BROCKVILLE | Bad news for students who think labour strife may prolong their sum- mer break. The Upper Canada District School Board wants all of its students and their parents to know that schools will be open on Tuesday, September 4 for the beginning of the new school year. September 4 is also the first day of classes for students attending schools adminis- tered by the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario. “Some people may believe that schools won’t be open because we don’t have col- lective agreements with our teachers, and that is simply not true,” says UCDSB Direc- tor of Education David K. Thomas. “We con- tinue to follow the legal process by bargain-

ing with all of our employee unions and that negotiation will continue for several months before we reach a final contract.” The comments were made as the Ontario government ended M.P.P.s’ summer recess early, recalling the legislature for Monday so it can deal with a proposed bill to force a wage freeze on teachers. The government wants a deal with the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Associa- tion, which has accepted a pay freeze, to serve as a “road map” for other unions. The largest teachers unions, the Elemen- tary Teachers Federation of Ontario and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’Federa- tion, say they want to continue negotiating with school boards.

CORNWALL | The biggest public works project ever undertaken by the city of Cornwall recently got a little bigger. Cornwall city council approved extra $6.5 million for additional work for a new sec- ondary waste water treatment plant it is constructing along Montreal Road, bring- ing the total project cost to $57 million. An extra $4.5 million in unallocated fund- ing for the project, the result of a lower than expected tender for the project, means the city can now add in items it had initially pared from the project to keep it within budget. The items, which were in the city’s initial wish list for the project, will cost the city $841,740 more for design work and $5.2 million more of construction work, accord- ing to a report presented to city council last Monday. The council awarded the construction tender for the plant to Graham Construc- tion and Engineering in March at a cost of $44.3 million to the city, about $4.5 million less than what the city had projected. “This provided the opportunity to rein- troduce needed items that were removed from the tender due to concerns for the project budget,” the report reads. The city awarded the construction con- tract, the largest contract ever awarded in the city’s history, to Graham Construction

Local company acquires global recognition

When Kimberley Thompson painted her first bucket for her husband to use as an outdoor ashtray, she never dreamed it would be the first step to forming a new company. Smoking outside the house has become pretty common these days and it’s the same rule at the Thompson home. Her husband smokes outside, but she didn’t like the look or the smell of the cof- fee can that held the smoldering cigarette butts. “If I have to look at your cigarette waste, then I want to look at them in something nice,” she told her husband. Hand painting a decorative floral pattern on a simple, galvanized metal bucket and filling it with sand was the answer to the problem of cigarette butts safely contained while keeping the backyard or deck attrac- tive. And so, the Backyard Bucket was born. Once Thompson’s friends and family no- ticed the new addition to the backyard, they began asking if she could make some- thing similar to display in their own back- yards and homes. “After everyone got their freebies, they started telling me I should try selling them,” she said laughing. But Thompson was already one step ahead of them. She had heard about the self employment assistance program through Job Zone and pitched her idea. She was ac- cepted and launched her company, Right In My Own Backyard. Based on customers’ requests, the Back- yard Bucket has since taken on a new identi- ty as a gift basket and container for all types of uses and occasions like: The Congratula- tions Bucket, The Get Well Bucket, The Baby

Bucket, TheWine Bucket, The Corporate Gift Bucket, and more. And while she still enjoys the paint work, Thompson says that adding the use of sign vinyl has opened the product up for person- alization with names, logos and phrases. Made-to-order custom work is the bulk of what she does. She also says her line is growing to include other products like vas- es and party tubs, and that there are further plans to incorporate other materials like glass and wood for backyard lighting and signage. She also hopes to see the backyard ash- tray outside the businesses of Cornwall, each sporting the business logo of its own- er. And to think all of this started with one hand painted bucket from her own back- yard. “We are very excited that Kimberley is enjoying success so quickly”, said Candy Pollard of the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre. “I understand that Right In My Own Back- yard has now gone global, and has already made one shipment to Japan and two to Australia. This is a wonderful success story.” Thompson confirmed she has shipped her product overseas.. “But Right In My Own Backyard’s mission is to provide Cornwall and the SD&G area with functional and attractive backyard ac- cessories and unique gifts that are created right here in our own backyard.” For more information about Right In My Own Backyard’s product line, look for it on Facebook or visit it online at www.rightin-

With the final summer long weekend just ahead, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is poised to step up enforcement on roads, waterways and trails and is reminding On- tarians to respect the rights of every hu- man being to be safe over the weekend. OPP officers will be taking tough mea- sures this weekend against those who place others at risk on roads, waterways and trails as part of their ongoing efforts to decrease fatalities and injuries caused by aggressive driving, distracted driving, seat belt non- compliance, impaired driving and failing to obey Move Over laws. Sadly, heading into the last summer long weekend of the year, it is shaping up to be a bad year for road fatalities with 232 people having died on roads and highways within O.P.P. jurisdiction as of August 27, compared to 195 during the same time pe- riod last year. According to O.P.P. Commis- sioner Chris Lewis, the solution to eliminat- ing collisions and the senseless loss of life is as simple as making a firm commitment

to good driving behaviour and obeying all of the laws in place to keep everyone safe. Lewis noted that the term “accident” is no longer commonly used among OPP mem- bers when referring to collisions because it implies that no one is at fault when some- one dies or is seriously injured. According to Lewis, there is almost always someone at fault and quite often it is not the person who is injured or killed. “If someone else dies in a collision be- cause you were speeding or texting while driving, or because you decided to drive af- ter having consumed alcohol, this is not an accident - this is a preventable incident that was caused because you were careless and chose to break the law and in the process, an innocent life was taken. Tragically, the person or persons who died had no hand in the costly decision that you made and this is what makes it extremely difficult for the families of the victims to deal with,” added Lewis.

COMMUNAUTAIRE Classique de Golf réussie pour la Fondation de l’Hôpital de Cornwall

de‘’compétition’’se situait au trou numéro 5 ‘’Beat the Pros’’ où tout participant témérai- re a pu se frotter aux talentueux golfeurs professionnels Pasqule Mongillo et Carol Ann Campbell. Les golfeurs ont également pu se rendre aux trous 7, 11 et 18 pour rele- ver divers défis. Angela Bellefeuille, coprésidente de la campagne À votre santé, accompagnée de ses deux jeunes filles, ont vendu de la limonade aux golfeurs tout au long de la journée. Elles ont ainsi pu remettre leur cag- notte, qui s’élevait à 228,25 $, à l’Hôpital de Cornwall pour l’achat d’un appareil IRM et d’une table d’urologie numérique.

Le Summerheights Golf Links était l’hôte de cette journée durant laquelle plusieurs défis attendaient les participants. Les présidents d’honneur, Nick et Marion Haramis, couronnés Citoyens de l’année 2012 par la Chambre de commerce de Corn- wall, étaient ravis d’accueillir les nombreus- es personnes qui se sont déplacées pour la bonne cause. Cette année, ce sont Jean

Duguay, Matthew Despatie et Luc Lacelle qui se sont qualifiés pour la compétition du trou d’un coup Rona, avec un seul et même objectif, soit celui de gagner le prix tant convoité de 1 million de dollars. Mal- heureusement, aucune de ces personnes n’a réussi le magique roulé et chacune est repartie avec un prix de consolation. Un autre endroit important de la journée

CANCER You might be subjected to a few unex- pected changes at work. While some col- leagues could lose their jobs, you will inherit a management position.

Combien d’entreprises peuvent se targuer de célébrer leurs 100 ans? Le Lodge fait partie des rares dans cettemagnifique communauté dire qu’il est fier de ce centenaire. Il y a beaucoup de facteurs qui ont fait du Blen Stor Dun Lodge un leader depuis tant d’années. L’un de ceux-là : les employés. Ces derniers ont grande- ment contribué aux soins des personnes âgées, leur assurant ainsi une longévité dans un cadre serein. Le Lodge a également eu la chance de s’entourer de personnes attentionnées qui étaient visionnaires et prévoyants. Et, finalement, la communauté a su apporter au Lodge un support incommensurable au cours de ces 100 dernières années. La ville de Cor- nwall, les trois Comtés Unis et les citoyens sont fiers d’avoir apporté durant toutes ces années leur sup- port au Lodge et d’avoir contribué à l’excellence des soins donnés aux résidents. Le Glen Stor Dun Lodge est une entité bien vi- vante pour les gens de la communauté. Plusieurs célèbrent aujourd’hui avec nous l’anniversaire de cet important monument centenaire. Au nom du Glen Stor Dun Loege, j’aimerais ex- primer ici toute ma reconnaissance et remercier chaque personne qui a eu l’opportunité de célébrer avec nous cet événement marquant. Nous continuons notre travail et espérons pour- suivre le chemin qui nous mènera vers un autre cen- tenaire.

 On behalf of the Glen Stor Dun Lodge, I want to extend a sincere thank you to everyone that has taken the opportunity to celebrate with us. We look forward to leading and paving the way towards the next 100 years  How often does an organization celebrate 100 years of existence? The Lodge is amongst the very few in this wonderful community that is now able to declare and be proud of this unique milestone. There are many contributing factors that exist that have made the Glen Stor Dun Lodge a Lea- der for so many years. For one, having great em- ployees who continue to provide compassionate care to the frail and elderly is the main reason for its longevity. The Lodge has also been very for- tunate to be lead by some extremely caring indi- viduals that have had great foresight and visio- ning. And finally, the community has provided the utmost support to the Lodge spanning over 100 years. The City of Cornwall, the three United Counties and the citizens have been proud and have continued over the years to support the Lodge for the work in providing excellent care at the highest level. The Glen Stor Dun Lodge is a vital entity to the people of this community and many have taken pride in celebrating with us this important milestone.

LE GLEN STOR DUN LODGE, D’HIER À AUJOURD’HUI Le Lodge, à Cornwall, fête cette année ses 100 ans. Mais comment tout cela a-t-il débuté?

C’est en 1912 que commence la construction de la Maison des Réfugiés. Une année plus tard, soit en 1913, au coût de 50 000 $, la dernière pelletée de terre est lancée. Située alors sur la 11e rue Nord, tout juste à la limite de la ville de Cornwall, la Maison n’accueillait pas uniquement des personnes âgées et malades mais aussi des personnes ne pouvant se débrouiller seules et les sans emplois. En 1932, la Maison est rebaptisée Glen Stor Dun Lodge, maison pour personnes âgées. Les conditions de vie étaient déjà bien précaires... La Maison des Réfugiés, tel était son nom, avait alors été construite sur une terre de 75 acres où se trouvaient une grange, des animaux et de magnifiques jardins. Les résidents mettaient alors fièrement la main à la pâte en s’occupant des animaux et en entretenant les jardins et la grange. En 1932, la Maison est rebaptisée Glen Stor Dun Lodge, maison pour personnes âgées. Les conditions de vie étaient déjà bien précaires mais la grande Dépression et la Deuxième guerre mondiale n’ayant rien aidé, elles se sont nettement détériorées. En 1952, la Maison ferme ses portes et s’installe définitivement sur un tout nou- veau site, face au Fleuve St-Laurent, sur

le Chemin Montréal. C’est en 1956 que le Lodge est annexé à la ville de Cornwall et les résidents du Glen Stor Dun Lodge de- viennent alors des citoyens de la ville. Dans ce nouvel édifice, les résidents atteignent le nombre magique de 210, contrairement à seulement 100 dans la toute première maison. En 1967, une chapelle est érigée afin d’offrir aux résidents un endroit à la fois de culte et de soins dans une ambiance joyeuse.

Congratulations for 100 years of excellence in care to seniors

IN 1986, AGREEMENT LEADS TO TWO NEW WINGS In 1986, an agreement between the United Counties and the city of Cornwall is concluded in order to construct two new wings – one 8-bed section in the county, and a 120-bed wing in Cornwall itself.

The dining room of the Lodge serves 21,000 meals every year to the friends and families of the residents. The ultimate goal of the administration and employees of the Lodge is to satisfy its residents and to meet their needs. The decor the Lodge reflects the Lodge’s aim to make everyone feel com- fortable. The rooms, for example, are small but cozy. Rugs are installed everywhere in order to maintain a very low noise level and seve- ral windows allow natural lighting to enter the Lodge. Outside, tables are placed here and there in a yard which offers a view of

In February ‘86, the first letter to the editor was written by the Lodge Resident Council, asking to keep the residents toge- ther on the existing site, and the Associa- tion was born. During this time, the local government and the community give to the elderly people the right and the opportunity to have a say in their own future. Between

1986 and 1988, more than 160 items are writ- ten and published in the newspapers concerning this campaign. In 1994, the organi-

zation’s committee conti- nued its mission, giving priority to the well-being of the residents and to provide dignity, inde- pendence and support, not just to the people at the Lodge but also to seniors living in the community. Over the last eight years, the Lodge has opened its doors to the community. The residents appreciate the inter-generational programs with their neighbors, more par- ticularly with the East Front Public School. These get-togethers take more frequently. These friendly meetings have since taken their place on the calendar of the activities.

ture. The Lodge is no longer divided any- more by gender. In the 1950s the wings of the Lodge were divided into sections for men and women. Today, that arrangement no longer exists. The sections bear the names of Stor- mont, Dundas, Glengarry, Cornwall, St. Law- rence and Seaway, in order to be represen- tative of the district.

The Glen Stor Dun Lodge has always enjoyed the support of the community. One hundred years later, the Glen Stor Dun Lodge continues to make history. This is a period of celebration, an opportunity to demonstrate to the public the many impro- vements that have taken place since its inauguration.

Since 1912, with the construction of the House for refugees, until the modern time, when the Lodge has more and more opened its doors to the people of the com- munity, its success can be attributed to the vision and commitment of the residents, families, volunteers and administration.

de levée de fonds pour eux», de dire Mme Morrell. Ainsi, elle crée une compagnie de charité à but non lucratif et lui donne le nom de Parade des Nations pour les affligés de défi- cience de développement inc ., qui chapeaute le défilé et les levées de fonds. Son agenda devient alors très chargé et, son temps, elle le voue toute l’année durant à cette entre- prise du coeur, aux handicapés. «C’est deve- nu très gros tout d’un coup et les demandes sont nombreuses», poursuit Marie Morrell. En effet, différents organismes et individus approchent Mme Morrell. Dernièrement, avec des dons reçus, elle a par exemple fait construire une clôture dans la cour d’une résidence d’Akawsasne pour un jeune en- fant autiste afin qu’il soit en sécurité, a acheté une chaise roulante à une personne handicapée de Cornwall qui en avait grand pas son temps pour la bonne cause. Elle se donne sept jours par semaine, six heures par jour, pratiquement seule, à toutes ses levées de fonds qu’elle a créées, ses bébés. Le défilé, la foire commerciale, le divertisse- ment culturel, les enchères silencieuses, le concours de photos, de chars allégoriques et de costumes et enfin le Festival du cerf- volant ne sont qu’un aperçu de ses entre- prises. Malheureusement, encore une fois, seul le Festival du cerf volant aura lieu le 16 septembre prochain puisqu’encore une fois les bénévoles se font rares. Mais elle ne s’arrêtera jamais. Marie pour- suit son rêve, son idéal, celui de rendre ser- vice et de voir des sourires sur les visages. «La communauté, c’est un peu notre famille à tous et s’impliquer, c’est donner lemeilleur de chacun», conclut celle qui, comme de nombreux autres, lance un appel du cœur pour que perdure le bénévolat et l’entraide. besoin et a offert à un groupe d’affligés, des billets de hockey pour assister à une partie des Sénateurs d’Ottawa.

CORNWALL - La Parade des Nations, à Cornwall, était à l’origine un défilé pour célébrer les origines ancestrales des ha- bitants d’Akawsasne, Cornwall et SDNG. Aujourd’hui, après cinq ans d’existence, la Parade revêt plusieurs habits et fait du bien à ceux qui en ont besoin. Créée en 2007 par Marie Morrell, la Parade des Nations a connu, dès sa première année, un succès monstre. Couleurs, danses, jeux, peintures, tout y était pour faire de cet évé- nement une grande fête. Ne durant qu’une seule journée de septembre, on demande à Mme Morrell d’échelonner cet événement sur deux jours. «Je désirais offrir une belle

façon personnelle d’apporter une contri- bution à ma ville, à Cornwall», explique la fondatrice. La Parade connaît alors un suc- cès pendant quatre ans mais, faute de bé- névoles, elle n’aura pas lieu cette année. «Je fais pratiquement 90% du travail, de la recherche de commandites, en passant par la traduction, l’impression, la paperasse, la mise à jour du site Internet, l’achat des ca- deaux pour l’encan silencieux et j’en passe», raconte-t-elle. Aujourd’hui, essoufflée et plutôt seule, Mme Morrell se voit dans l’obligation d’annuler le défilé. La cause? Un manque considérable de bénévoles. Cependant, au courant de l’année 2008, cette dernière s’aperçoit des besoins gran- dissants des personnes avec une déficience de développement. À partir de ce moment, elle organise tout au long de l’année des levées de fonds afin de leur venir en aide. «En une année, je fais environ une douzaine

Collecte de sang

Avec jusqu’à 14000 $ ENAJUSTEMENTSDE PRIX Montant indiqué pour le F-150 Super CrewPlatinum4x4 *

CORNWALL - La Collecte de sang média- tique du maire aura lieu le mardi 4 sep- tembre 2012, au Complexe civique de Cornwall (dans les Salons A, B et C), de 12h à 15h30, et de 17 h à 19h30. La Société ca- nadienne du sang espère attirer plus de 300 donneurs qui retrousseront leur man- che afin de donner du sang. « Au cours des mois d’été, nous modifions tous notre routine afin de prendre des va- cances, et le don de sang n’est pas toujours une priorité. Entre temps, tous les jours dans notre région, des patients hospitalisés qui ne peuvent pas prendre de vacances ont besoin de transfusions sanguines, de traitements pour le cancer et autres inter- ventions », souligne le maire de Cornwall, Bob Kilger. «Chaque année, la Collecte de sang médiatique du maire attire beaucoup de monde et permet de répondre aux besoins des hôpitaux en matière de sang. J’espère que cette année ne sera pas différente. Je désire profiter de l’occasion afin de remer- cier les membres des médias pour leurs efforts de parrainage continus de cette col- lecte de sang qui est maintenant une tradi- tion estivale à Cornwall.» Pour fixer un rendez-vous, veuillez com- poser le 1-866-JE DONNE (1 866 533-6663) pour le service en français, ou le 1-888 2 DONATE (1 888 236-6283) pour le service en anglais. La ville de Cornwall fait partie du programme Partenaires pour la vie de la Société canadienne du sang depuis 2007. Cette année, elle s’engage à faire don de 375 unités afin de souligner ces rapports bien spéciaux. Elle a déjà recueilli 241 unités. Au cours des mois d’été, d’autres organisations locales se sont jointes au programme Par- tenaires pour la vie, y compris le Service de police de la communauté de Cornwall, qui s’engage envers 15 unités et le Farley Win- dows qui s’engage envers 30 unités. De plus amples renseignements au su- jet du programme Partenaires pour la vie sont disponibles sur le site . À l’exception de Brockville, Cornwall est la seule ville dans la région nord/est de l’Ontario possédant une base de donneurs assez solide afin de soutenir une collecte mensuelle, plutôt que l’habituelle période de rotation de 56 jours de la Société cana- dienne du sang.
