Local residents honoured with Jubilee medals

By Greg Kielec More than 100 people filled a ball- room at the Ramada Inn in Cornwall to see 13 local residents receive a special honour. Jim McDonell, MPP for Stormont-Dun- das-South Glengarry, hosted a ceremony to award the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Ju- bilee Medal to deserving citizens from local riding who have made exceptional contri- butions to their community. Fourteen medals were awarded, but 13 of them were handed out during the cere- mony. One medal recipient was absent. Among those honoured were well known Cornwall businessman and community supporter Gerry Benson; a legend in local politics in South Dundas -- Johnny Whit- teker; and well-know Chesterville cash crop farmers Stan and Betty Vandenbosch. Also receiving honours were Richard Herrington, Vera Joyce, Gail Kaneb, Hugh MacDougall, Don Mitchell, Susan Rainey, Onagh Ross, William Shearing, Rev. Garry Stokes and Lorne Strader. COMMUNITY RECOGNITION Recipients of the Queen’s Diamond Ju- bilee Medal are citizens nominated by the community who have made exceptional and significant contributions to their local community, Ontario and Canada over the course of many years. The award is a way to recognize their service to their peers, as well as a collective token of appreciation to commemorate Her Majesty’s 60 years of loyal service to her subjects throughout the Commonwealth. “I am proud to have been given the op- portunity to recognize 14 outstanding citi- zens,” McDonell said. “Their spirit and dedication are worthy of a Diamond Jubilee Medal and we are lucky to have them among us in our commu- nity.”

Local MPP Jim McDonell has raised his ire over the loss of two USB keys with data from voters from Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry and a number of other Ontario ridings. “This is a serious and unacceptable data breach,” McDonell said in a press release is- sued last week. “Although they do not know where the two USB keys are today, there is a strong possibility of them being in the wrong hands.” Elections Ontario has reported the breach to the OPP and engaged external legal coun- sel and a specialist security firm to carry out an investigation into the data breach. Voters’ data -- which includes names, ad- dresses, dates of birth -- in Stormont-Dun- das-South Glengarry may have been compromised in the significant data leak from Elections Ontario whether or not the elector voted in the past election. Toronto-based law firm Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP has been retained by the Chief Electoral Officer to review and report on the circumstances surrounding the loss from an Elections Ontario facility of the USB drives containing data including elector in- formation. To conduct the review and provide a re- port, Gowling has been working with senior staff and management at the office of Elec- tions Ontario and also with the professional security consulting firm, Inkster Incorpo- rated. McDonell was critical of the security lapse which allowed the USB keys to be lost. “Proper security of information procedures were not followed at Elections Ontario,” Mc- Donell said. “I appreciate the chief electoral officer taking responsibility, committing to get to the bottom of the issue and to imple- menting security strategies to ensure such a breach does not happen again”. Elections Ontario has reported the breach to the OPP and engaged external legal coun- sel and a specialist security firm to carry out

an investigation into the data breach. McDonell is encouraging consumers to be vigilant in the wake of the massive data breach. “If this data falls into the wrong hands and is decrypted, there is a strong possibility it could be used to attempt to get credit cards. Consumers living in the affected ridings should pay extra attention to their accounts and incoming mail for any suspicious activ- ity. “I encourage all Ontarians to be pro-active and obtain credit file disclosures within the next three or four months.” “These are free copies of a person’s file with a consumer credit rating agency and include records of open accounts and attempted openings. I have made these forms available on my website and they can be downloaded from the agencies’ websites directly.” Photo by Greg Kielec Local MPP Jim McDonell has slammed a leak of voter data by Elections Ontario.

The youth was observed to be in breach the probation order by a member of the Cornwall Community Police Service Patrol Division. He was charged with three counts of breach of a probation order and released to an adult to appear in court on Aug. 23. The youth’s name was not released as per provision under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Non-contact order A 29-year-old Alexandria man was ar- rested last Wednesday, after it is alleged he contacted his 28-year-old ex-com- mon-law wife contrary to orders. It is alleged that on July 1 and 2 he had contact with his ex-common-law wife and on July 16 he attended her residence. He was bound at the time by a recogni- zance order not to communicate directly or indirectly with the woman and not to come within 50 metres of her place of residence, employment or any place at which she may be. He is charged with three counts of breach of a probation order and three counts of failing to comply with a recognizance.

To the editor:

The Young Interpreter Programme at Upper Canada Village is enjoying its thir- tieth season.

Created in 1982, the pro- gramme offers an opportu- nity for 10-15-year-olds to interpret the life of 19th cen- tury children by being in- volved in demonstrations, role-playing and interpreta- tion of 19th century social history.

The Games People Played, to discover a contact and infor- mation about the celebration. By any chance, were you a Young Interpreter? Do you know someone who was? Thank you very much for helping us to spread the word.

Every Young Inter- preter from the past 30 years is welcome, but we are unsure of some of the names and addresses ...

We wish to honour the 30 year success of this wholesome, local programme by hav- ing a celebration the weekend of July 28th and 29th. Every Young Interpreter from the past 30 years is welcome, but we are unsure of

in our water. They killed the mandatory long form cen- sus, depriving us of a clear picture and un- derstanding of the circumstances that Canadians face in their daily lives. Scores of federal scientists will no longer be monitoring and reporting to us about the environment that our children and grand- children will have to live in. I believe that to make good decisions you need good data. Yet Mr. Lauzon and the Conservatives are eroding that data, bit by bit. It leaves our government flying blind— and dangerously ill-equipped to protect the health and safety of Canadians.

To the editor:

This month scientists from all across Canada held a funeral march on Parlia- ment Hill for the “death of evidence.” They were protesting how MP Guy Lau- zon and his Conservative government are ignoring evidence in policy-making, cutting off funding to vital research and preventing government scientists from presenting evi- dence to the public. This normally reserved group was moved to noisy protest by a set of decisions of the Conservative government that shows disre- gard for the hard work that our scientists do to generate knowledge for the benefit of Canadians. The Conservatives are eliminating the Ex- perimental Lakes Area, which we have used for 40 years to protect us from poisons

While you’re out enjoying the weather, remember to protect your- self and your family from the sun. Protect self from sun when outdoors Also apply sunscreen to your lips, ears and nose as these parts of your body can burn eas- ily. Reapply sunscreen (even waterproof sun- screen) every 2 hours, or more often if you’ve been swimming, sweating or if it has rubbed off. To further protect yourself from the sun:  Wear a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses that protect against UVA and UVB rays.  Apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before reapplying a second sub- stance, such as insect repellent.  Apply sunscreen on cloudy days, as sunrays can still damage your skin.  Avoid overexposure between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.  Keep babies under one year old out of direct sunlight to prevent skin damage and dehydration. While some effects of sun damage are visible within a few hours (tan or sun- burn), others may only appear years down the road. Keep in mind that excessive tanning and sunburns can lead to skin cancers, premature aging of the skin, eye damage and more. Never use suntan oil, as it offers no pro- tection and causes the skin to burn quicker.

It will also be a great experience for the 13- and 14-year-olds on the Black Sox roster, who will get to compete in front of a home- town crowd. “It’s exciting for all of the boys. They’ve never been in a tournament like this,” said Mrs. Poirier.

The Journal Joey Ladouceur climbed all the way form 10th position to win the Alexandria Home Hardware 50 at the Cornwall Motor Speedway Sunday night. Rob Yetman and François Adam were on the top row of the 23-car field that took the initial green in the Alexandria Home Hard- ware 50. Yetman led the first lap as several cars got together in Turn 4. Yetman got a good jump as Marc Lalonde and Roch Aubin slipped by Adam for the top three spots. Joey Ladouceur quickly got to fourth after starting tenth and challenged Lalonde using the bottom lane. Ghislain Valade hit the wall hard in Turn 4 and the yellow lights were back on with six laps in the books. Yetman had another strong start as Lalonde got second over Aubin. The Alexandria driver charged back to sec- ond on the next lap and pursued the leader with a dozen laps in the books. Lalonde regained second as the leaders were caught with a slower car with 33 laps to go. Flagman Jason Aikman brought the caution “We live in a period of history which has the potential to be the most enlightened. Yet, it has become almost expected that we adopt a blaming, pessimistic, dark at- titude, both for today and for what lies ahead.” “The Women Gather”, reflects author, Katalin Kennedy’s passion to put forth her belief that the world can, indeed, create a more positive future.

Moose Creek, which is strategical- ly located at one hour fromOttawa’s downtown and some 30 minutes Welcome to...

name of their village was coined by hunters. Near the village there is a miniature waterfall, which rare- ly freezes over. This made a good drinking place for animals, including the moose. The moose followed the creek to the drinking hole, followed by the hunters. Thus to distinguish the different waterways, among the hunters, it became known as Moose Creek. The first house was built on the west side of the creek by a Mr. Mc- Fall. Moose Creek’s reputation as a thriving business community start- ed over a century ago. During those first years, several businesses of- fered their products and services, in- cluding a shoe shop, where the best ladies shoes in this part of the coun- try were reputedly made, as well as a tailor shop. The first general stores in the com- munity were owned by Mr. Stein-

berg and Vineburg. Mr. Vineburg’s store offered a wide range of mer- chandise, including high wines and white whiskey. Mills were the chief industry in the early days of the village.

Moose Creek, un village, une âme

À Moose Creek, les villageois croi- ent que le nom de leur village a été donné par les chasseurs. Mais on ne sais pas si c’est une légende ou une histoire vraie. Situé à quelque 80 kilomètres d’Ottawa, le village de Moose Creek compte environ 850 âmes et fait partie du canton de North Stor- mont. Tout près du village coule une cascade miniature qui ne gèle pas l’hiver et qui devient le point de ralliement, en toute saison, des orignaux et autres animaux qui s’y abreuvent. L’orignal est apparu sur les terres de Moose Creek il y a long- temps, boivent l’eau de la cascade qui forme un ruisseau et qui porte désormais le nom du village, Moose Creek. Les premiers colons, d’origine écossaise, se sont installés sur ces terres et y ont bâti des maisons et des fermes, et c’est sûrement l’une des raisons pour laquelle on pouvait se procurer du whisky blanc dans le premier magasin général. Une des toutes premières habitations se trouve sur une crête, du côté ouest du ruisseau, et aurait appartenu à un

certain M. McFall. Les hommes ont commencé à cul- tiver la terre aride. Il n’était pas rare de voir des troupeaux de moutons parce que leur laine servait à fabri- quer des vêtements chauds pour les hivers rigoureux de ces terres plates. Un moulin à scie, à carder et un au- tre à bardeaux ont fait tranquille- ment leur apparition. Par la suite, la construction du chemin de fer du Canada Atlantique, entre Montréal et Ottawa, a été le début d’une ère nouvelle pour la communauté de Moose Creek. Le village, surplombé par la mag- nifique église Notre-Dame-des- Anges, a tous les avantages de ses jumelles. Les jeunes et moins jeunes peuvent s’en donner à cœur joie à la piscine publique, au centre récréatif, au terrain de balle et à la patinoire couverte. Cette petite communauté vit en parfaite harmonie avec son environnement, et l’entente est bon enfant entre les anglophones et francophones. Grâce à l’entraide des gens, aux magnifiques terres qui la colorent, Moose Creek continue de prospérer.
