Volunteers swamp city park to save beavers

By Greg Kielec

Donna Dubreuil watched with a keen eye as a group of volunteers assembled an un- wieldy mixture of wire cage, a large plas- tic drain tube and a cement block together next to a pond on Guindon Park on Thurs- day. The president of the Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre had good reason to take in first-hand the work of a small group of vol- unteers from across North America trying to convince the city of Cornwall to permanently abandon its practice of trapping and killing beavers. It took Guidon Park neighbour Wyatt Walsh and Rebecca Sorrell, the founder of Cornwall’s populist Save the Beavers groups just weeks to convince city officials what wildlife advocates in Ottawa have been try- ing to accomplish for years. “We’re hoping to use this to embarrass Ot- tawa,” Dubreuil said matter-of-factly as vol- unteers toiled in the sweltering heat to install their final pond leveler, a contraption created byMike Callahan, founder of Massachusetts- based Beaver Solutions in the United States. Callahan was one of about a dozen volun- teers toiling in Guindon Park last week to in- stall non-lethal pond levelers designed to allow beavers to do what they do naturally without flooding adjoining roads and lands in the park at the western edge of the city, bordered by County Road 2 to the north and the huge Ontario Power Generation Dam to the north. “I think it’s important because it will be a working example of what can be done and hopefully inspire other people to do the same thing,” Callahan said. “What I find gratifiying by doing things like this I feel like I’m solving problems for peo- ple, but also helping the environment by keeping the beavers on the landscape and all the bio-diversity and other benefits that beaver dams have for people and the envi- ronment.” Also pitching in was Adrian Nelson, com- munications director for B.C. based The Fur- A Cornwall city councillor is incredulous after some members tried again to gang up on him during an in camera less than three months after adopting a report forbidding the practice. Councillor Andre Rivette walked out of an in camera session preceding Monday night’s open council session after some members of council raised an interview he conducted with The Journal and Cornwall Free News on July 4. Rivette conducted the interview to com- plain about how a retirement deal for Paul Fitzpatrick, the city’s chief administrative officer, was never brought to full council for approval, despite assurances from pro- ponents of the deal that would happen. Sitting in last Monday’s in camera session, he heard talk of preparing the projector to By Greg Kielec

A beaming Sorrell was exuberant as volun- teers gathered for a roadside break after in- stalling the final pond leveler Thursday afternoon. “There was a lot of bumps and bruises along the road to get us here,” she said. But she is optimistic the levelers will work well enough to convince the city to abandon beaver kill traps in the park altogether.

Councillor walks out of closed session over media interview

closed meeting investigator Stephen Fournier which faulted council for dis- cussing the media interview in camera and set guidelines for what can be discussed be- hind closed doors. “I’ve pushed. I’ve tried to do right the last 11-12 years,” Rivette said. But he concedes he may have finally hit a wall. He does not want to call for another probe by council’s closed meeting investigator Stephen Fournier because of the cost to tax- payers. The investigation by Fournier this spring cost the city $2,832, including the $125 fee charged to Rivette. “There’s not much I can do on this issue,” Rivette said.

agenda for the in camera session, Rivette said. He walked out of the session around 6 p.m., about an hour and fifteen minutes before council finally exited the closed meeting. Mayor Bob Kilger, in an email to The Jour- nal last Tuesday, refused to comment on the incident, citing the confidential nature of the in camera discussion. “Any ‘In-camera’ meeting subject matter must remain confidential. I will continue to uphold my obligations in this regard,” he wrote in his email. Kilger conceded at an April 23 meeting that he dropped the ball in allowing coun- cil members to gang up on Rivette during a closed council session on Feb. 27 in re- sponse to an interview he did complaining about the burgeoning cost of payouts and legal fees relating to former staff.

Cornwall city council approved the donation request at its regular meeting on July 9, much to the delight of Ka- vanaugh. “It will be a huge improvement,” said Ka- vanaugh. “Not only just the time saved (on cleaning the ice), but it will create a better playing surface and everything.” Kavanaugh said he and his RCMP col- leagues in Pond Inlet have been working on a number of projects to benefit the commu- nity, and the acquisition of an ice-resurfac- ing machine - a first for Pond Inlet - represents a big improvement.

The City of Cornwall is donating a sur- plus ice-resurfacing machine to Pond Inlet, a community of 1,600 people on the northeastern tip of Baffin Island in the Territory of Nunavut. The machine will be used in Pond Inlet’s new arena, and it will go a long way to- wards creating better ice - and more ice time - for the youth of the community to play hockey. As it stands now, the ice in Pond Inlet is manually cleaned with shovels and brooms throughout the day and flooded at the end of each day, a process that takes over an hour to complete.

Nearly all supplies for Pond Inlet arrive by ship, and the ice resurfacer will be loaded on to the next shipment fromMontreal later this month. The Pond Inlet delegation is covering the costs of transporting the machine from Cornwall to their community - a distance of more than 3,000 kilometres. “It will be a great day when I look out at the ship this August and see a Zamboni on it,” Kavanaugh said.

“This Zamboni has served us well for many years, and it will certainly be put to good use in Pond Inlet.” It was a family connection that got the ball rolling on the donation. A First Air employee in Pond Inlet learned from a family member in Cornwall that the City had a dormant ice-resurfacing machine in its possession. The piece of equipment was purchased in 1987, and it was scheduled to be disposed of through a surplus equipment tender later this year. Soon after, a formal request was sent to Mayor Kilger from Robert Kavanaugh, an

Coming to terms with the death of a loved one is one of life’s most challeng- ing journeys. Grief after suicide

Strumming right along

When the death is from suicide, family members and friends can experience an even more complex kind of grief. While trying to cope with the pain of their sudden loss, they are overwhelmed by feelings of blame, anger and incomprehension.

By Lisa Etherington-Runions strikes chord with Ferguson Traditional Irish, Scottish music In most circles, Jesse Ferguson is known as the Bard of Cornwall. A folk musician from Cornwall, his love of Scottish and Irish traditional music was nurtured in the neighbourhood of Glen- garry County, home of North America's largest Highland Games. He sings and plays several musical instru- ments, including the guitar, mandolin, vio- lin, harmonica, bodhran and pennywhistle. He has performed solo and with other mu- sicians in Cornwall, Ottawa, Miramichi, Fredericton, New Brunswick, and Sydney, Nova Scotia, where he currently resides. “I was drawn to Cape Breton as one of Canada’s liveliest centres for Celtic music” said Ferguson, “but I’ve also enjoyed teach- ing English at Cape Breton University.” With years of experience, Ferguson has learned how to tailor a performance to the venue and to the crowd. He's played pub sets entirely of classic rock; he's played Celtic festival sets entirely of traditional folk; and he's always up for throwing his original songs in the mix to keep things fresh. Ferguson is a lively performer whose vast repertoire of songs allows him to please any crowd, and, yes, he takes requests. Ferguson has always been a creative per- son, and his energies were first expressed through visual arts, then music, and most recently through poetry. “I still practice all of these arts, though I spend most time on music and poetry now,” said Ferguson. “I’ve always been drawn to music simply because it can powerfully express my emo- tions and connect me with other people— with people of past generations in the case of Celtic/folk, and of course with my con- temporary listeners.” “As I reflect, I hope to look back on my life and see that I’ve been a good husband and father, and that, regardless of the worth the world places on my poetry and my music, I put everything I could into my art.” When asked if there is a motto, quote, song, or symbol that represents something he stands for or believes in, Ferguson is quick to say “my Scottish clan motto is Dul- cius Ex Asperis, which is Latin for “sweeter after difficulty.” “I like to keep it in mind when things in life don’t go easily,” he said. “If I ever get a tattoo, it would likely incorporate that motto”

Adding to their burden is the stigma that still surrounds suicide. Survivors of sui- cide and their friends can help each other and themselves by gaining an under- standing of grief after suicide. For sur- vivors, it helps to know that the intensity of their feelings is normal. Survivors of suicide – the family and friends of a personwho died by suicide – feel the emotions that death always brings. Adding to their suffering is the shock of a sudden, often unexpected death. As well, theymay feel isolated and judged by society, friends and colleagues. Some people compare the emotional stress to being trapped on an endless roller-coaster. Survivors may feel: guilt, anger, blame, shame, confusion, relief, despair, betrayal and abandonment Suicide is a difficult topic for many peo- ple. Cultural and religious taboos can lead to judgmental or condemning atti- tudes. Some people prefer to avoid even discussing suicide and their lack of knowledge about it makes them fearful. Attitudes like these can isolate and fur- ther stress survivors. Survivors Are at Risk Survivors of suicide are at high risk of dying by suicide themselves. The experi- ence suddenly makes the idea of suicide very real, and it is not uncommon for sur- vivors to experience suicidal thoughts. Another factor is that suicide-related ill- nesses like depression run in families. Be- cause of this increased risk for suicide, survivors should not be isolated, but rather supported and encouraged to talk about all their feelings – even the most difficult ones. Survivor Coping Strategies No two people ever experience grief in the same way, or with the same intensity, but there are strategies that can help you cope with your loss. It is important to ac- knowledge that the death is a suicide. Also it is important to recognize your feelings and loss. Talking openly with your family so that everyone’s grief is ac- knowledged and can be expressed could help you in this difficult time. Try to find support groups where you can share sto- ries, memories and methods of coping. How Can I Help My Friend? Showing a willingness to listen is prob- ably themost important thing you can do for a friend who is a survivor of suicide. It may be distressing at first, but you’re not expected to provide answers. Instead, you can be a comforting, safe place for someone who desperately needs to talk.

Special photo Jesse Ferguson, affectionately known as the Bard of Cornwall, is a folk musician with a love of Scottish and Irish traditional music.

“I still love their music and perform some of it myself. Since falling in love with Celtic music in my late teens, I took the mandolin out of the closet and now play it regularly in addition to my guitar and bodhran (drum).” Living so far from home

Ferguson’s heritage coincides with his musical talents. Ferguson started playing music when he was roughly 10 years old. He comes from a musical family, where there have always been fiddlers on his

mother’s side of the family. However his biggest mu- sical influence early on was his father, who taught him how to play guitar and who also sings and plays harmonica. Ferguson’s father bought him a mandolin, but he

“I’ve always been drawn to music simply because it can powerfully express my emotions and connect me with other people—with people of past generations in the case of Celtic/folk, and of course with my contemporary listeners.” Jesse Ferguson Musician

is hard for Ferguson, as he doesn’t get home as often as he would like. Being able to perform a show or two when he re- turns just makes the holi- day that much more fun. “Cornwall has always had a vibrant music scene, and I’m happy to be a part of it when I head home,” he said. Ferguson will be head- ing home to headline at

wasn’t much interested in learning music theory in lesson format. Ferguson mothballed the mandolin, and in his early teens he became interested in the guitar, since that’s what most of his favourite musicians played. “I sometimes refer to myself as self- taught, but my father can certainly take some of the credit (or blame)” quips Fergu- son. “The biggest musical inspirations in my early years were the classic rock performers that my parents listened to: The Beatles, Tom Petty, Blue Rodeo, Neil Young, The Doors and The Rolling Stones.”

this year’s Highland Games in Maxville during the August long weekend, but will also be performing at a special Celtic night at East Side Mario’s in Cornwall on Aug. 2, along with special guest Rebecca Skye, on fiddle and vocals. As much as Ferguson likes the large con- cert stage, he is fond of the intimate setting that venues like East Side Mario’s have to offer. “It should be a great show.”

ARIES You won’t feel like going out much this week. That won’t stop you from enjoying talking to other people, and the tele- phone and neighbours will give you plen- ty of opportunity for that. TAURUS If you’re going on vacation this week, you might find the roads are very busy. It will require you to have a lot of patience, but it will mean you spend some unexpected quality time with your family. GEMINI You are skilful in the art of communica- tion and you are sure to be at the heart of a really interesting discussion. There seem to be some great parties on the horizon! CANCER If you have recently moved, it’s clear that your decorating efforts are not yet over. Don’t skimp on ways to make your nest cozy and welcoming. LEO At the beginning of the week you will be confronted with a few contradictory situ- ations, but be patient and clarification will come. After that, you will be ready to participate in all the activities people suggest to you. VIRGO You might see the need to make some adjustments in your circle of friends. You will need to spend some time alone this week in order to manage your affairs as efficiently as possible. LIBRA Some emergencies will weigh you down, but you will be able to return to your active social life with a feeling of having done your duty. SCORPIO If you’re leaving on vacation, be sure not to forget your passport and other neces- sary documents. Only by being well-orga- nized and structured will you be able to enjoy this year’s holiday. SAGITTARIUS Your plans could change at the last minute, perhaps because of a family event that has to be postponed. You will still be able to have some fun in a group. CAPRICORN It’s not always easy to get along with fam- ily members, as there are a lot of emo- tions involved. Some effort will be neces- sary to keep the peace. AQUARIUS Even if you’re on vacation, don’t be sur- prised if your boss asks you to put in a few hours. You will be generously rewarded, and perhaps a promotion is on the horizon. PISCES You will definitely be the centre of atten- tion. This might motivate you to renew your wardrobe and treat yourself to some beauty care that will make you glow.

A message from 2012 Lift-Off spokesman Michael Galvin Speaking on behalf of the board we are all very happy with the response of the festival goers. The weather was perfect and all of the scheduled balloon flights left the Computer Sense Launch Field on time and flew right over the city! There was always a good crowd of specta- tors on hand to see the launches, even for the morning flights! On the launch field I talked with people from all over that were amazed at what they were seeing. The T-Rex taking to the air on Saturday Night was a real crowd pleaser, along with his tethered dis- play during the Burton Cummings concert. It is amazing to look at the Facebook pages from Cornwall and see all the great photos of the event that people are posting! We had all sorts of daytime events this year that were also very well received. These included the War of 1812 Re-enactment, the CAS Family Fun Zone, the Dynamic Closures Roll for $50,000, the Pommier Jewelers Sift-Off for Lift-Off event, the DockDogs® Champi- onships, the Classic Car Show (which drew over 50 vehicles), and the Kinsmen Bingo for Seniors on Sunday morning. The turnout for the bands was also very good. The Thursday night crowd was a little lighter than we anticipated, but traditionally Thursdays are the smallest nights. The peo- ple that did attend however loved the enter- tainment and the bands put on a great show! The park was certainly much fuller for Bur- ton Cummings and I have received some great feedback from people that travelled from as far as New Brunswick and Toronto to take in that event. We had a similar reach for the Saturday night show and it was very well received. Overall the board is pleased with the turnout. We were very pleased that we had three diverse crowds on three differ- ent nights, which speaks to the fantastic job done our Entertainment Directors. Cornwall should be very proud of the jobs everyone did as host to our out of town vis- itors. TeamCornwall and Pommier Jewelers paired up to present all the pilots with a wel- coming gift that was very well received. Mr. Burton Cummings mentioned several times what a great meal and hospitality he had re- ceived at Casa Paolo Ristorante Italiano! Every visitor I spoke to had a story about howwell they were treated. From the bands that went golfing to the balloon pilots that were invited by a local cycling group to go on a 60 km bike ride along the St. Lawrence, everyone pitched in to be good hosts and ambassadors for our city! Soaring to new heights

City fire ban issued Given the recent string of dry weather, the Cornwall Fire Depart- ment has issued a ban on all outdoor fires in the City of Cornwall until fur- ther notice. This ban includes approved residen- tial fires in small fire appliances and outdoor pits, as per city by-law 2009- 150. Residents who violate the ban may be prosecuted under the Fire Protection and Prevention Act, and they may also be subject to full cost recovery meas- ures as stipulated in the city by-law. The townships of both South Stor- mont and South Glengarry have insti- tuted burn bans due to dry conditions. Water supply problem South Nation Conservation’s Water Response Team has upgraded the Low Water Condition issued on May 17 to Level 2. The recent warm and dry conditions have decreased the streamflows throughout the watershed to approxi- mately 30 per cent of normal for this time of year, according to SNC. Some dry wells have been reported by property owners to the SNC and ex- posed rocks in watercourses pose an additional hazard during recreational activities. The SNC’s water response team is asking residents, businesses and other industries throughout the watershed to reduce their water con- sumption by 20 per cent. Walton street fire The Cornwall Fire Department’s fire prevention unit is investigating the cause of a fire in the 700 block of Walton Street residence on Saturday. The fire department responded with five vehicles from both stations. A total of 15 fire personnel were at the scene. The fire was quickly extinguished with no injuries or loss of life, according to a news release from the department.

Promoter lines up country tribute to raise money for Port Theatre

Lucie Hart, founder of the Citizens for the Port Committee, said a large amount of restoration work has already been com- pleted at the theatre. The leaking roof has been fixed and the undulating ceiling above theatre patrons has been repaired and painted. Electrical work is also being done to provide the power necessary for live music acts. “The possibilities for this place are end- less,” Hart said. “We never want it to not be an attraction.” The Ring Of Fire: A Johnny Cash Experi- ence fromHamilton, Ont. is rapidly becom- ing Canada’s favorite tribute to the man in black, Johnny Cash, according to a bio posted on the group’s Facebook page. The group, under the leadership of Andy Vickers, brings a different experience be- cause its members are younger than most Johnny Cash tribute artists. The groups’ repertoire ranges from Big River, Get Rhythm, Folsom Prison Blues and I Walk The Line, to Hurt, Rusty Cage, and an amazing emotional rendition of Spiritual performed by Andy Vickers. Members bring a unique edge to the music and style that made Johnny Cash famous which is attracting the next generation of iron and Chris Raabe joined the top 5.

Supporters of a historic theatre in Corn- wall are hoping to cash in with a popular country music tribute Aug. 3. The Citizens for the Port Committee and Alkaline Entertainment will be bring The Ring of Fire – Johnny Cash Experience to the venerable Montreal Road institution to raise money for the time-worn theatre. It will be the first time a live music act has played at the theatre since the Bowering Boys in 1952, back when the movie hall was still called The Roxy. “This is one of the best Johnny Cash trib- ute acts that you can get,” Brunet boasted proudly at a press conference at the historic theatre last week announcing the show. The introduction of live musical acts is a new direction for the theatre, and if the Johnny Cash tribute is well received, there could be more shows at the theatre in the future, said Jeff Brunet of Alkaline Enter- tainment. “If it works for the theatre, we will make it happen,” Brunet said. The Port Theatre will still be a place to see movies, but organizers are hoping the extra revenue from live music acts will bring in some much needed cash to put towards the building’s restoration. “It’s a gem of a building and we’d like to try to save it,” Brunet said. “This can be Sprint Car fans were pleased to see the return of the Patriot Sprint Tour at Corn- wall Motor Speedway Sunday night along with a full show for the Modifieds, Pro- Stock, Semi-Pro and Mini-Stock as Nor- trax was the main sponsor of the evening. Brian Howland led the way in the 25-lap Patriot Sprint Tour feature, Mitch Brown and Alain Bergeron were following suit. Howland got into heavy traffic just before the halfway point as Jared Zimbardi took third from Bergeron on lap 15. Glen Styres was really strong on the top and cracked the top 5 with 2 laps to go. Styres passed Berg- eron just before hitting the wall hard as the checkered flag flew for Brian Howland who finished first in front of Brown and Zim- bardi; Bergeron and Parent completed the top 5. The race lasted just over 6 minutes. In the 30-lap Jiffy Auto Service Modified feature, Bruno Lepage grabbed the lead over Kayle Robidoux and Gage Morin. Dale Planck was on a mission as he got to third on lap 3 after starting tenth. Michel Chicoine brought the caution with 5 laps down. The top 3 remained the same on the restart. Robidoux got by Lepage using the high lane just before Gilles Godard stopped in turn 2 with 18 laps to go. Robidoux got a good start as Planck got third while Joel Do- The Journal

Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh, Star of the Sea, help and show me, herein you are my Mother. Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth! I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in this necessity. There are non who can withstand your power. Oh show me herein you are my mother. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse in thee (3x). Holy Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3x). Holy Spirit, you who solve all problems, light all roads so that I can obtain my goal. You who gave me and that in all instances, in my life, you are with me, I want in this short prayer to thank you for all things as I confirm once again that I never want to be separated from you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy towards me and mine. The Person must say this prayer three consecutive days. After three consecutive days, the request will be granted.
