I had a girlfriend and all that.” To his latter comment, he laughs. “One day, I noticed someone was starting a broomball team,” he added. “I thought, why not. I’ll try it. I’ve been loving it ever since.” Having been exercising the sport for nearly half a century, MacDonald highlights that he has witnessed what he calls changes. “When I was younger, there was a lot of excitement for broomball,” he recalled. “The problem is that the people that are avid players, coaches or referees, are all too old to become involved again.” The broomballer, who now coaches an Akwesasne based team, hopes that the Provincial Championships will attract much needed attention to the sport. “We need to get young people involved in it,” he mentioned. “I hope they come out and watch it. Perhaps it will ignite a spark.” But even if he’s a coach, MacDonald still insists on wearing his special grip shoes and participating in games, hosted by neighbouring leagues. For even if no league plays specifically in Cornwall, communities such as Finch, Chesterville and Alexandria, amongst others, offer local players the chance to mingle within other teams, all the while doing what they enjoy. “Their leagues are very organized,” he pointed out. “There are a lot of people from Cornwall that go all around the city to play.” When asked why no league operates from Cornwall, MacDonald quickly looks around beforemurmuring, “the Benson Centre is an amazing facility,” he said. “And so, it can be expensive to play here.” Instead, the CRBA plays from the Turtle Dome, on Cornwall Island. “Before, when we used to play in Cornwall, I’d have to take care of pretty much everything. I did have great helpers, but I was inway over my head.” By playing on the island, he has a lot less responsibilities to look after and he can finally concentrate nearly all his attention to broomball.“I love playing on the island, it’s a great facility.” With that, the man takes a hold of his stick and ball and leaves the Benson Centre, knowing full well that he will be back with his club in less than 24 hours. In the heat of the moment In the early hours of the morning, when most of Cornwall’s citizens are still warmly tucked in bed, their alarmclocks not emitting any noise for another hour or so, yells can be heard coming from the Benson Centre’s #1 ice rink. It’s 7 a.m. and MacDonald is standing behind the Akwesasne bench, looking intently at the bout taking place before him. It’s easy to forget that the players, who run from one end to the other of the massive rink, are actually playing on ice. Up in the stands are several early risers, nearly all of them holding a cup of coffee purchased at the nearby canteen. “Shoot, shoot, shoot!” yelled one of the players,

sporting a yellow shirt.The orange ball is shot throughout the rink, as it bounces off players and boards. On the bench, participants, out of breath, take a short break before jumping back on the ice.Loud thud sounds can be heard nearly every three seconds, as shots are taken at opposing goaltenders. Broomball nets are considerably bigger than their hockey counterparts. “They’re about six feet tall,” indicated MacDonald. There’s suddenly cheering coming from the ice. The opposing team has scored and

the players are congratulating each other. But MacDonald doesn’t seem too worried, for he knows it’s the name of the game. Although he’s eager to win a medal for his club, he also understands the importance of networking and making the sport grow. The championships that see teams from all over the province are organized by the Federation of Broomball Associations of Ontario (FBAO). The association’s main purpose is to encourage, administer, and co-ordinate the development of broomball throughout the province.

It’s fast paced, action packed and, luckily for Cornwall residents, it was showcased at the Benson Centre last weekend. Broomball players from all over the province took part in the Provincial Championships of the Ontario Broomball Association (OBA) fromMarch 18 to 20. Sporting colourful jerseys and helmets, the players battled it out, all wanting their teams to finish on top and be crowned champions. Although armed with brooms, the players offered feats of courageous manoeuvres, running past opponents in order to try to bury the small orange ball in the rival’s net. To be fair, the brooms they use aren’t the same as the ones grandmothers worldwide utilize to clean their residences. They are actually sticks that contain a wooden or aluminum shaft and have a rubber-molded triangular head similar in shape to that of a regular broom. The main goal of the sport is simply defeating your opponents by scoring as many goals as possible, all the whilemaking sure they score less than your team. All this must be done over a thin layer of ice and with shoes! Thankfully, players wear special rubber-soled shoes instead of skates, and the ice is prepared in such a way that it is smooth and dry to improve traction. Broomball enjoyed quite a glorious and active past in the city. The Cornwall Journal recently caught up with Eric MacDonald, president of the Cornwall Regional Broomball Association (CRBA), at the Benson Centre. It’s fitting, for the 2016 Senior Provincial Championships takes placemere hours after the interview. Trying to muster up support Upon entering the Benson Centre, one can distinctively see that the man, sporting a ponytail, is at home in the sporting facility. After glancing at his surroundings, he sits down on one of the centre’s black chairs. In his arms are a broomball stick and a big, orange ball. It’s clear MacDonald means business. “The sport used to be really big in Cornwall,” explained the man. “There used to be five big leagues of broomball in the city and the surrounding areas.” In addition, the sport was much more aggressive, mixing full body contact with finesse moves. “Back then, it was a lot rougher,” MacDonald said, a smile visible under his moustache. “Now, there are only two leagues where it’s allowed, the intermediate and elite divisions.” The Cornwall resident has been active in the local broomball world for quite some time, having started his broom journey in 1968. “I started playing when I was 18 years old. I played hockey before. I liked it, but I wasn’t going anywhere. I was older and well,

Promouvoir la lecture chez les enfants

Lyne Lapalme, chef des services aux enfants et à la jeunesse à la bibliothèque publique de Cornwall, attire les jeunes lecteurs de la région de plusieurs différentes façons. Selon elle, les enfants sont très visuels et doivent ainsi être stimulés par des images attrayantes et remplies de couleurs, telles que celles produites par les bandes dessinées. — photo Francis Racine

Inquiet au sujet des problèmes de santé mentale ou de toxicomanie de votre enfant? Vous cherchez des ressources et un soutien?


possède une longue liste de critères qui lui permet de choisir les meilleurs livres pour les jeunes lecteurs de Cornwall. « La liste peut être longue, a-t-elle reconnu, avant de rire aux éclats. Si c’est un auteur populaire, nous n’avons pas trop de problème. Mais si l’écrivain n’a pas de renom, je dois faire mes recherches. » Selon elle, les maisons d’édition possèdent souvent de très bons résumés d’œuvres qu’elles tentent de vendre aux bibliothèques. « Quelques fois même, je dois allez voir si les autres œuvres écrites par l’auteur sont populaires auprès de nos lecteurs. S’ils ne le sont pas, ça change tout. » Mais les tâches de la dame ne s’arrêtent pas là. Bien qu’elle doive passer plusieurs heures à fouiller pour de nouveaux exemplaires, elle supervise aussi les activités qui ont lieu dans la section des enfants. En fait, Mme Lapalme doit souvent trouver de nouvelles idées afin d’attirer une clientèle qui préfère souvent bouger que de s’asseoir paisiblement. « Il y a quelques années, nous avons organisé un événement qu’on avait appelé Le mini-putt à la bibliothèque , a-t-elle raconté.

C’est au deuxième étage de la Bibliothèque publique de Cornwall et au beau milieu du département des services aux enfants que se trouve le bureau de Lyne Lapalme. Originaire de la région d’Embrun, la dame qui occupe le poste de chef des services aux enfants et à la jeunesse se dit passionnée des bandes dessinées. « Lorsque j’étais toute jeune, j’étais probablement la seule de mon école à en lire, a-t-elle expliqué à notre journal. J’ai grandi avec des grands frères, donc ils me passaient souvent leurs bandes dessinées. » À titre de chef, Mme Lapalme s’occupe de promouvoir la lecture auprès des bambins de la communauté. « Je trouve ça bien important, la lecture chez les enfants, a-t- elle affirmé. Ceux-ci sont très visuels. » En effet, la chef souligne qu’àmaintes reprises, un bouquin aurait été choisi grâce à sa couverture. Il est quandmême vrai queMme Lapalme, qui supervise quotidiennement l’acquisition de nouveaumatériel pour son département,

Nous avons autant de filles que de garçons qui y participent. » La chef des services pour enfants souligne aussi que la plupart des événements organisés par son département sont unisexes. « À part quelques activités, nous essayons de faire en sorte que tous les enfants peuvent y participer. » Incroyablement surprise par l’amour de la bibliothèque à Cornwall Ayant déménagé à Cornwall afin de poursuivre sa carrière il y amaintenant cinq ans, Mme Lapalme s’est dite surprise par l’appui de la communauté. « Je suis toujours surprise par l’appui offert à la bibliothèque par les résidents de cette ville. À Cornwall, les gens considèrent la bibliothèque comme un certain luxe. C’est une culture totalement différente ici. » Mme Lapalme se sent donc très à l’aise

dans l’environnement qui l’entoure. « J’adore essayer de nouvelles choses, afin de voir si les jeunes vont aimer ça, a-t-elle fait savoir. Nous amenons des chiens à la bibliothèque afin que les enfants leur lisent des histoires. C’est très populaire auprès des jeunes et de leurs parents. » Le département organise aussi un club de lecture chaque été. L’objectif principal de celui-ci est de favoriser la lecture chez les enfants âgés de 3 à 13 ans tout au long des mois d’été. « À la fin de l’été, nous organisons une grosse fête, a préciséMme Lapalme. De plus, il y a aussi toujours un tirage. » Chaque bouquin ayant été lu est inscrit au concours. Mme Lapalme est aussi invitée à présenter l’heure du conte dans plusieurs écoles. « Je viens d’allez le faire à Marie-Tanguay. Les enfants ont vraiment aimé ça. » Selon Mme Lapalme, il ne suffirait que de suivre deux directives afin de bien s’entendre avec les enfants et de se procurer leur attention : ne pas être trop sérieux et s’amuser autant qu’eux.

Upper Canada District School Board trustees (UCDSB) received a reminder that the district must keep working on its own workplace safety record. Dennis Koluk, UCDSB health and safety specialist, reported the number of accident claims filed last year with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board totalled 118 compared to 90 in the previous year. Koluk noted the district still has a lower-than-average overall accident rate compared to other school districts its size in Ontario. He recommended continued emphasis on workplace safety inspections, with a focus on reducing potential incidents involving slips, falls, and tripping, along with continued training for on-site safety inspections of schools and other district facilities. He also recommended updating health and safety programs to meet current provincial guidelines for chemical management and workplace violence prevention, and continu- ing to improve safety in technology education programs through purchase of standardized and updated safety tools and other equipment. – Gregg Chamberlain

Cadets attend Senators game

Members of the 325 Cornwall Kiwanis Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron and the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets Corps Stormont recently attended an Ottawa Senators hockey game, at the Canadian Tire Centre. Although the club lost 2-1 against the Dallas Stars, the cadets claimed that the experience was well worth it. The Canadian Cadet Organization is a youth group provided through a partnership between the Canadian Department of National Defence and the respective elemental leagues. This is a youth group for ages 12-18 with a focus on developing youth in the areas of leadership, citizenship, physical fitness and for air cadets, an interest in flying, and is sponsored by the Cornwall Kiwanis Club and Wing 424 of the Cornwall Royal Canadian Air Force Association. — supplied photo New school programs at Pioneer Museum

The Glengarry Pioneer Museum has added two new school programs as well as three themed education kits to their roster. New alongside its classic “Pioneer Days” school program, the museum now offers a “One Room Schoolhouse” program, to be held in the iconic S.S. #1 Kenyon Big Beaver schoolhouse. Students will blast into the past and exchange their modern day classroom for a one room schoolhouse where they will be greeted by an authentic pioneer teacher. They will learn all about a pioneer student’s role and write on slates.

Another addition are the Edukits. These themed-education kits bring the museum straight into the classroom. One kit focuses on Traditions and Celebrations and is geared towards Grade 2 students, while the second kit, Life as a Pioneer Child , is best suited for Grade 3s. The last kit celebrates all things Confederation and is intended for Grades 7 and 8. These kits contain activities, photographs, crafts and recipe ideas, artifacts and background information for the teacher and are available for a two-week loan period free of charge.
