Severe storm wreaks damage across Cornwall
By Greg Kielec
Five people were trapped in their vehi- cles for a harrowing three hours in Corn- wall after a tree brought power wire down on top of them during a severe thunderstorm Friday evening. The five were trapped in two vehicles in the area of Eighth Street and Adolphus Street around 6 p.m. when high winds top- pled a tree and electric power wires around their vehicles. The people were able to leave their vehi- cles shortly after 9 p.m. after emergency crews worked for three hours to make it safe for their exit. No one was injured in the incident, according to the Cornwall Fire De- partment. At least two other streets were closed to traffic due to fallen trees and numerous traffic lights were out throughout Cornwall after the severe thunderstorm which ham- mered the city with high winds and marble- sized hail between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. A stretch of Marleau Avenue between Mc- Connell Avenue and Alice Street was still blocked around mid-evening Friday after six trees lining the edge of a cemetery fell in succession across the street just north of
Cornwall Community Hospital’s Mc- Connell site. Tollgate Road was also closed to traffic a few hundred metres west of Brookdale Av- enue due to a fallen tree from the brief but powerful storm which hit the city around 6:30 p.m. Leaves littered the roadside in many areas and there was some minor flooding on some city streets. A large number of branches were torn from trees throughout the city, some of them quite large.

Upper Canada Playhouse’s season open- ing production of the Michael Parker play is non-stop hilarity from the moment the first guest checks in. Doug Tangney, playing the character of Major Ponsenby -- playhouse goers may re- member him in last year’s Dear Santa -- used his dead pan delivery to perfect, delivering lines that had the crowd in stitches.

Hospital establishes clinic focusing on stroke prevention and thrombosis
Lauzon’s hidden agenda to slash protection for the environment
rapid access to diagnostic services, health assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and risk factor management to those who have had a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) or a mild stroke. Referrals can be made through family physicians or through the Emergency de- partment. In order to ensure efficiency of the clinic visit it is possible that some test be completed prior to the initial visit. Once a signed referral is received, the nurse practitioner will triage the request and the patient will be contacted by the ad- ministrative assistant to be booked in to the clinic. The thrombosis clinic is operated by the same staff as the Stroke Prevention Clinic but focuses on patients who have been re- cently diagnosed with a blood clot in their leg or in their lung. Patients are being referred for follow-ups, anticoagulant dosing and OTN-Telehealth communication with The Ottawa Hospital through referrals initiated by the emer- gency department. Education is given re- garding the use of their anticoagulation therapy. You may contact the clinic at 613- 938-4240 ext. 3118 for any other questions. Bucket with sensitivity and enthusiasm. Aidan Vachon was delightful as Charlie's fa- ther, and Alicia Hartholt did an impressive vocal characterization of Grandpa Joe. Emily Screech, Jason Dann, Autumn Essex-MacIn- tyre and Garth Shepherd did an excellent job as the golden ticket winners. The production team was made up of Rachelle Eves, PamLalonde, Connie Aikman and Kelly Leclerc. Viscount teacher and artist Karen Wooding designed the sets. Proceeds from the production were used to buy two cordless microphones for the school community. Additional funds will be dedi- cated to future art projects at the school.
With the support and leadership of the Champlain Regional Stroke Network, the Cornwall Community Hospital has re- cently established an outpatient second- ary stroke prevention and thrombosis clinic. Over the past few weeks, the team has been developing processes for referral to these clinics. Our nurse practitioner, Nancy McDonald has been busy training at the Ottawa Hos- pital. She is very excited to finally be on site and provide patient care out of our new office located on 3rd floor, at the McConnell site. The clinic utilizes a comprehensive, inter- disciplinary approach to stroke preven- tion/thrombosis needs. The initial team consists of a physician consultant, nurse practitioner and a clerk. “These two clinics are part of our admis- sion prevention program, which treats peo- ple on an outpatient basis, allowing acute care services to be used as such,” said Janice McCormmick, director of the program The Stroke Prevention Clinic will provide The Journal Young actors at Viscount Alexander Public School recently presented a vibrant produc- tion of Willy Wonka Junior.

group of protested in front of city hall and also jammed the council chambers during the May 14 meeting, vowing to return, after being rebuffed by the city. Sorrell never knew about the city beaver trapping until just recently, despite fact she and her young daughter often used the park. “I honestly had no idea until then,” she said. “I was shocked that we were just murder- ing them. That’s our national symbol,” she lamented. It appeared the group may have turned the corner when a high-level politician, be- lieved to be Green Party leader Elizabeth May, contacted the Association for the Pro- tection of Fur-Bearing Animals in Burnaby, B.C. to intervene. The association in turn contacted the city to offer humane alterna- tives to the kill traps being used by the city. “That was huge. That was huge,” Sorrell beamed. “Now it becomes an issue that we have the solution, they are offering it free of charge so how can the city possibly deny this?” All council members, including Mayor Bob Kilger, were sent emails detailing the association’s offer to implement humane methods to control the beaver population in Guindon Park. The association also offered to train city staff on how to use the control methods. But, much the surprise of Sorrell, all of city council -- including the mayor -- rejected the association’s offer for aid. Sorrell, however, was unwilling to con- cede defeat. She contacted city parks and recreation manager Christine Lefebvre to arrange a meeting with she and Walsh, the city, Ontario Power Generation and the On- tario Ministry of Natural Resources. The success of that meeting opened the door to a presentation to council which has directed administration to prepare a report on the feasibility of using other control methods for the beaver population. firstname.lastname@example.org

Rebecca Sorrell learned much about the role of beavers in our environment since coming to the defense of family of the in- dustrious rodents in Guindon Park re- cently. But how the political process works in Cornwall was as much, if not more of an eye-opener. “I learned it’s not always easy to change the system from the inside – but it’s possi- ble,” said Sorrell, who has become the un- official spokesperson for a loosely knit group of citizens crusading against the in- humane trapping of beavers. Eventually the system did work for Sorrell and her gang. The city pulled its last kill trap out of the beaver pond at Guindon Park recently and is considering more hu- mane methods of dealing with beavers. “This is the win for the little guy in the sense,” said Sorrell, who especially lauded the work of city planner Stephen Alexander on the issue. But still, the system “didn’t quite work the way it is supposed to,” Sorrell said. And there are still no guarantees the city will adopt more humane methods of dealing with beavers being promoted by the group. The conibear kill traps were first discov- ered by Wyatt Walsh, a former Green Party candidate who lives near Guindon Park, who went to the Cornwall Free News to voice concern about traps being placed near areas frequented by park users and their pets. But when the danger of the traps and the inhumane way that they trap and drown beavers was broached with city hall, the beaver defenders were firmly rebuffed. “The city didn’t take any of seriously first,” Sorrell. Moreover, they were initially denied their democratic right to speak to council about the issue at a May 14 meeting. “There was frustration for sure. There was definitely frustration,” said Sorrell, whose

It was also alleged that between May 13 and May 30, he attended her previous resi- dence. Police were contacted and an investigation followed. He was charged with two counts of crimi- nal harassment and held in custody until court the following day. His name was not released as it would identify the victim. Arrested for theft Cody Lacelle, 19 of Cornwall and a 16- year-old Cornwall youth were arrested on June 5 after is alleged that they at- tended a Ninth Street business and re- moved property without making any attempt to pay for the item. They were detained by the store’s loss pre- vention officer and turned over to a mem- ber of the Cornwall Community Police Service Patrol Division. They were both charged with Theft under $5,000. The 16-year-old youth was released to an adult to appear in court on July 12.Lacelle was released to appear on July 17. The youth’s name was not released as per provision under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. What’s your name? A 12-year-old Cornwall youth who missed is curfew found himself in further trouble when he gave police a false name on June 5. The youth was bound by undertaking with to not be away from his residence between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. ex- cept when accompanied by specific adults.

He was charged with personation and Breach of Undertaking. He was held in custody until court the fol- lowing day. His name was not released as per provi- sion under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Mischief On June 5, at approximately 1 a.m., SD&G OPP officers responded to a report of a mis- chief on Second Street in Morrisburg.

James Hrkach solo show Nearly three decades of eastern Ontario artist James Hrkach's work will be on display at the Cornwall Regional Art Gallery later this month. The works in this exhibition, largely oil paintings, are explorations into fig- urative composition. The few ab- stracts, still lifes and landscapes included in the show are additional studies that, according to Hrkach “yet again serve to confirm the importance of thoughtful composition.” The Hrkach exhibition will be on dis- play from June 19 to Aug. 3. Meet the artist at the opening reception on Tuesday, June 26, from 7 to 9 p.m. “His style . . . you can feel the sub- ject’s presence communicating with you,” said Sylvie Lizotte, executive di- rector at the Cornwall Regional Art Gallery. Gallery hours are from Tuesday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit corn- wallregionalartgallery.ca for more in- formation.

Attached to Kingston’s Provincial Spring games of the Special Olympics, the event named Four Corners Basketball was re- cently introduced to give the young partic- ipants a chance to do sports. “It’s phenomenal for their self esteem. In- stead of just taking Phys Ed, they can ad- vance to further levels of competition,” said James Noronha, manager of the Four Cor- ners Basketball team. The school’s volunteers all dressed in red t-shirts, helped the kids get the right tech- nique to put the ball in the basket. Volunteers were students from grades 11 and 12, as well as teachers, participating and sheering for the kids. Principal Robert Currier had nothing but pride and enthusiasm to share for all stu- dents, and the mission of the event. “It’s a goal to strive toward, that’s why I truly believe in helping to motivate them despite the barriers they need to over- come,” said Currier. The students with disabilities will also get the opportunity to go as far as the Special Olympics, if they qualify. The organizers were able to get everybody Cornwall Transit enjoyed a big boost in ridership last Wednesday, June 6 as thou- sands of residents took advantage of the free rides being offered in celebration of Clean Air Day. The transit service recorded a total of 6,045 passenger boardings on Clean Air Day, mak- ing it the most successful day yet in the six- year history of the annual event. In 2011, Cornwall Transit offered 5,333 free rides on Clean Air Day. By comparison, the average passenger boardings on Cornwall Transit for the three previous weekdays was 2,834. “The response to our Clean Air Day pro- motion exceeded our expectations,” said Transit Manager Len Tapp. “We received a lot of positive comments from the public, including many first-time riders. We’re hoping this event will encour- age them to ride Cornwall Transit on a reg- ular basis.” City Councillor Elaine MacDonald, Corn- wall Transit Committee Chair Jason Setnyk and Pat Baranowski of Corus Entertainment served as mystery riders for the event, and they rode the bus throughout the day, ran- domly handing out monthly bus pass prizes to riders. The mystery riders got to interact with pas- sengers of all ages. They included a senior attending a medical The Journal

Students also had the opportunity to par- ticipate in instructional sessions, and skills and drills workshops. firstname.lastname@example.org City waterfest set for Aug. 10-11 The Cornwall Canal will be brought to life on Aug. 10 and 11 during the third annual Sun Life Cornwall Waterfest, fea- turing dragon boat races, swimming races, a water run, artfest, a strongman competition, and more. “We’re excited about the slate of events for this year’s Waterfest,” said Johanna Mur- ray, one of the event organizers. “We think it will be a hit with both participants and spectators.” Taking place at the west end of the canal near the Kinsmen soccer fields, Waterfest will once again play host to the dragon boat races on Aug. 11. During this popular event, teams of 21 will work in unison to steer the boats along a 275-metre course. Each team participates in one practice run and three races, with the fastest teams moving on to the finals. A number of teams have already regis- tered, however there is still room for those interested. Experience isn’t necessary as there are two divisions – a sport division and a fun division. “The dragon boat races are a fun-filled ac- tivity, and it’s a great team-building sport,” added Murray. “They offer a great way to build company morale and team spirit.” In addition to the dragon boat races, a col- lection of local artists will be displaying and selling their work on Aug. 11 during the artfest portion of the event.

Cornwall Transit operates seven conven- tional routes, 1 Community Bus route, 46 daily hours of Handi-Transit service and morning and evening Industrial Park routes.

Caring about the long-term Over the past 25 years, Canada’s senior citizen population has more than doubled, due mostly to longer life expectancy. For example, women born in 1941 can expect to live four years longer than women who were born in 1921. But this greater life expectancy also means increased caregiving respon- sibilities, often in the form of long-term care. This greater need for long-term care often puts extra pressure on fami- lies, particularly women who are tradi- tionally the primary caregivers.
with long-term health problems or physi- cal limitations are often required to handle various other tasks according to the specific situation. For example, an elderly person will have very different needs from those of a disabled child or a terminally ill adult. For those who do not have family members to help out, there are com- munity long-term care programs that can provide health and support services workers who can visit patients in their homes. These programs can help dis- abled people live independently at home or provide care for those who must live in long-term care centres. There are also agencies across the country that can provide services ranging from personal care to in-home professional health ser- vices. These services greatly improve the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of Canadians each year.
Long-term caregiving involves two pri- mary areas, instrumental activities and personal care. Instrumental activi- ties generally include preparing meals, doing housework and yard work, and providing transportation, while personal care typically involves bathing, dressing and feeding.

bullion assessment in their services. The Canadian Coin Association is able to make offers for your scrap silver. Old tea sets, stamp col- lections from the Franklin Mint, and silver bars, are all examples of items that could be purchased on the spot! It’s a bullion boom, and everybody’s winning! CCA’s International collectors are also seeking gold coins from around the world. Maple Leafs, British Sovereigns, Krugg- erands, Double Eagle gold coins and Gold Francs, are all examples of gold coins they are looking for on behalf of our collectors. Because of their success within the numismatic commu- nity, they are also able to offer maximum value on all other gold as well. With the gold market at over $1500, all of your broken gold, scrap gold, jewellery, even dental gold, can be turned into quite the fist full of dollars. What are you waiting for?

Cornwall for only 4 more days! They’re interested in all those coins you’ve kept stored away for the occasion that you would look into them! Well, that occasion has arrived. Bring your coins to The Cana- dian Coin Association, and have one of their numismatic profession- als assess their current market value in the collectible market, FOR FREE! Canadian and American coins minted before 1968, can fetch significant prices with international collectors based on; condition, collectability, and metal content. Because they represent a large data- base of collectors on an international level, they are able to make on the spot purchases on their behalf! This week, you could be turning that old jar of coins into a vacation! While in Vancouver, British Columbia, CCA was able to offer $79,000 for an 1893 Morgan Silver dollar minted in San Fran- cisco. This specific coin is highly sought after in uncirculated condi- tion, mainly because not many were minted in San Francisco that year. Collectors are willing to invest top dollar in order to add this gem, and other coins of its kind, to their collections. Recently, they were able to offer $30,000 for a Canadian twenty cent piece from 1858. Why? Because the collector, from Austria, had everything but that ONE coin for his series of 17th century Canadian coins and was willing to pay top prices to complete his set. Those two stories are just the tip of the iceberg for their coin experts. A silver dollar from 1948 can fetch anywhere from $500 to $13,000 based on it’s condi- tion. Collectors are eagerly looking for pre 1968 proof sets, coins with specific mint marks, coins from specific years and international gold coins. Don’t even get them started on the 1921 Canadian fifty cent piece! Coins are their middle name. For a fee of $0 (that’s right, its free), you can bring that coffee tin full of coins to our educated team of numismatist’s, and find out if you’ve been harbouring a very well kept secret! Even common coins can have a significantly higher value than their currency due to their silver content. Silver dollars, fifty cent pieces, quarters, dimes, even nickels are garnering maximum value. With the silver market higher than it’s been in thirty years, it’s definitely the best time to turn old coins into a healthy pay day! Because they have the time and space to do so, they have included HOW IT WORKS: Gather up all of your gold and silver coins, as well as any silver and gold jewelry you may have laying around.
