Help track the rare eel Anyone who has seen an American Eel in these parts lately is a member of an elite group. Once plentiful in the South Nation watershed and throughout this part of the province, it’s estimated the eel population has declined by more than 90 per cent. In cooperation with various partners, the South Nation Conservation agency has been tracking eels since 2009. “Anglers have important information about where they used to see and catch eels,”said Naomi Langlois-Anderson, SNC Senior Fish andWildlife Technician. People with eel stories are asked to contact her at 877-984-2948, extension 250, or nlan- The reasons for the decline in the eel population are numerous, added Langlois-Ander- son, who is collecting anecdotal information about the species. They include man-made dams and weirs, over-fishing, pollution and parasites. The snake-like, brown-to-tan coloured eels with small pointed heads have traditionally been a staple in the diets of native North Americans. In a remarkable natural phenom- enon, hatchlings swim 6,000 kilometres from the Sargasso Sea to reach freshwater desti- nations where they feed and mature before returning to the sea to spawn 10 to 30 years later. They’re a protected species in Ontario. “Except for First Nations, few anglers actually sought out eels,” Langlois-Anderson observed. “They were seen as a nuisance. However, in some European countries, smoked eel is considered a delicacy.” Nécrologie Nécrologie Obituary PARISIEN


Shoes lead to cleanwater saisoniers; Brownsburg - Garage Williams; Vankleek Hill - Country Depot, The Review; Dalkeith - Breadalbane Baptist Church; Pine Hill - Les petits moteurs and Lachute - Location Madden.

Some people have no shoes to wear, others have no clean water to drink and here in Canada some people have shoes they no longer intend to wear. How can all this be connected? George “The Shoeman” Hutchings from St. Louis, Missouri is coming to this area April 11 when he will pick up used shoes. He will then sell them to distributors who supply street vendors in South America and Africa with shoes that people with no shoes can buy for pennies on the dollar. Check him out at www.shoemanwater. org. Monies received from the sale of shoes are used to drill wells, and sup- ply pumps and water purification sys- tems in Haiti and Kenya, relates Wayne Clark, Executive Director of the Fellow- ship of Christian Farmers of Canada. Everybody wins. Some people get clean water to drink and wash with. Others get shoes to wear at a price they can afford, and donors have less clutter in closets and there are fewer shoes in landfills. “By doing so, we demonstrate in a small way that we care,”says Clark, aGrenville resident.“I have been to Africa and have seen women car- rying 20 litres of water (and not necessarily clean) on their heads over five kilometres.” People with shoes they no longer wear are asked to tie them together in pairs and bring them to a collection point, or start a collection point of their own. Clark can be contacted at 819 242-7067. Shoes may be left at Hawkesbury - Car- Lan Tire; Grenville - Les équipements

Catherine Hedrich speaks on “My near- death experience : When paranormal is normal,” Saturday, January 25 at 7:30 p.m. at Arbor Gallery, 36 Home Ave., Vankleek Hill. ‘‘This presentation is an opportunity to share and discuss my personal experiences of paranormal events within the framework of the latest scientific research and peer- reviewed findings in the fields of quantum physics, medicine and archaeology,’’ she says. For information: www.arborgallery. org, or, or 613 678-5086. ‘‘In theWest, formal education has trained us to depend on the information found in school textbooks, but little is taught about the importance of the unseen. Therefore, when events termed ‘‘paranormal’’ take place in our lives, we have no cultural con- text with which to explore and understand these natural phenomena. This presenta- tion is an opportunity for people to place their own events within a positive dialogue framed by the comfort of scientific meth- ods of inquiries,’’ says Hedrich. “Near-death experience”

Une autre parole, une autre anecdote, un autre mot d’encouragement, tu m’as récités. L’écho de ceux-ci résonne encore en mon esprit. Mes pas maladroits, tu as guidés à travers des mots non seulement de sagesse mais également teintés de vertu. Tu as su élever en moi des sommets que jamais j’aurais pu concevoir seul. C’est ainsi que ta mémoire en moi sait, elle aussi, créer de nouvelles ambitions et aspirations; tu es l’essence même qui saura éclairer mon propre passage. Ta fille Lyne, ton gendre Michel et ton petit-fils Alexei THANKS JESUS FOR FAVOR GRANTED May the sacred heart of Jesus be praised and glorified throughout the whole world forever and ever amen. Say this prayer 9 times for 6 days and your favor will be granted. A promise of publication when favor is granted. G.M.
