Morrisburg Curling Amy and Ashly Cooper on their competitive game

Anita and Larry Cooper’s daughters, Amy and Ashly, continue to curl up a storm in major competition. Last week they had their Cornwall team, skipped by Mitch Baker, in the big Royal Lepage Bonspiel in Kemptville. They won four games and lost two, just missing the quarter-finals. One of their wins was against a team from Arsenal, in Halifax. 

Some of the best female curlers in the country were there, and in a thrilling final, Sherry Middaugh defeated Jen Hanna for the title. Amy and Ashly still curl here in the competitive league, and you can watch them on Thursday nights, competing with some of the best curlers in our club.   

     Cornwall held their Ladies’ Senior Invitational Bonspiel last week, and the Morrisburg Club was represented by two teams. Alice Thompson, Susan McIntosh, Betty Locke and Sharon Van Allen competed in the early draw at the six-sheet facility. They defeated their first opponent, Lancaster, handily before lunch, but were pitted against a strong team from Brockville in the afternoon, dropping that match 6-3. Brockville took home cash awards, but our ladies were too far down the list for that. There were a number of prizes drawn, though, and two of our folks won there.

Our other team, Gretta McGann, Cheryl Thompson, Yvonne Mabo and Claire Locke, lost their first game to an R.A. quartet, and then played a tough Vankleek Hill foursome in their afternoon game. They almost pulled off a win, but fell just short.

Prescott’s senior men came to town for a friendly match against our fellows. While these were friendly, they were quite competitive. Jack Barkley, Dwight Gilmer, Doug Jarvis and Paul Gunther bowed to their opposition in the last end, with Larry Berry, a rather youthful retiree, making some good shots against us. Don O’Brien, Len Bellamy, Dave King and Jim Millard triumphed over Lloyd Bilmer’s foursome on centre ice, while in the final match, Martin Shneckenburger, Neil Williams, Ron Beaupre and Robert Martin played their opponents to a draw. The usual sociabilities and a fine lunch ended the event, with enough sandwiches left over to treat the Thursday morning curlers.

Susan McIntosh announces that her second two-person bonspiel will be held here on November 20th, with 24 teams in the mix. Get your name in early. These bonspiels fill up fast.

Our best wishes go out to a few of our curlers, with injuries, health problems and deaths in the family of concern to them.

 Finally, a sobering thought from Raymond and Sandra Benoit, who sent us a copy of the Montreal Gazette. We learned that the Ste. Anne de Bellevue Curling Club in the Montreal region has folded. With only 54 members and a $60,000 annual budget, the club, founded in 1923, will have its property rezoned and sold. Senneville is the West Island’s smallest municipality, with about 900 residents, and it is expected that three houses will be built on their land. While our club is managing financially, under careful stewardship and support from many local businesses, more members would help, and frequent rentals and bonspiels would assist with our own finances. Keep us in business, folks!

That’s it for now. 

Good curling!

New car wash now open

 

Does your car need a bath? If so, you will find everything you need at Morrisburg Car Wash on County Road 2, just west of the water treatment plant.

November 12th marked the official opening of Fred and Mattie Zandbergen’s new business.

Fred told those assembled for the event that he and wife Mattie had been thinking of starting this venture for a number of years and, finally, after selling Fred’s Farm Supplies, the time was right.

The Zandbergen’s hired Hosers Car Care for the project. Phil Johnston, site manager from the Belleville Hosers Car Care, was responsible for the project “from the site plan right through to the finished project. The whole bit.”

According to Johnston, who “just joined the company recently,” Hosers Car Care owns five car washes itself, but also deals in repairs, supplies to “entire turn key operations for other car washes.”

The Zandbergen’s car wash has three car bays, two of which are drive through with doors on both sides. There are also two vacuum stations, a change machine, and a vending machine for your convenience.

Each wash costs $3 for four minutes. It is also possible to purchase tokens. Each token gives four minutes of wash time. According to Fred, right now you can purchase tokens at a 20 per cent discount. So, instead of paying $12 for four tokens, you would only pay $10.

He mentioned that they’d make great stocking stuffers for Christmastime.

Fred’s brother, Richard is the manager of the car wash and the one to see if you want to purchase tokens or have questions. The phone number to call is 613-655-3333.

Fred told the Leader that in just two weeks the car wash has made “50 per cent of the targeted proceeds – what you can expect to make once things are running smoothly in like a year from now.”

During speeches at the grand opening, SD&G MP Guy Lauzon told the Zandbergens, “I want to wish you the most success. Thank you for South Dundas. It continues to grow, grow and grow.”

South Dundas Deputy-Mayor Jim Locke said, “all I can do is echo Guy’s words. This is a great addition to the village of Morrisburg.”

My Mission Trip to Africa

 

My wife and I have just returned from a Missions trip to Malawi and Kenya in Africa.

According to statistics that were given to us on the plane as we flew, we were some 9,000 miles away from home, approximately. We discovered just how significant that was when we arrived back home in Canada having to adjust to a seven hour time difference.

However, that adjustment was minor to our having to deal with what we experienced.

I want you to know, I’ve seen television programs that show the poverty and the hungry children, and for most of my life I’ve been exposed to missionaries who have been there. I’ve heard their stories and have seen their slide shows, but I was not prepared for the real thing.

I think what got me the most is how very little most of the people there have, and yet, how very pleasant they are. I ate some of the food that most of them depend on for their survival. Day after day, it’s the same bland diet.

I realize that I have far too many choices, but I am real thankful that I have a better choice than that.

In Kenya, I was privileged to attend a school in the slums where the children get one meal a day, a mixture of beans, corn and rice if it is available. However, because of cutbacks of support from Canada, that meal is now only served on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. As far as can be known, these children have little or nothing to eat on Thursdays, Friday, Saturdays and Sundays.

I have to tell you, I wept when I heard that.

These kids, by the way, are as smart as any of our children. They are getting a good education, and good Biblical foundation as well. These children are the hope for the future of their countries.

Out of the worst possible conditions, God is raising up young people whose lives are being changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

In Malawi, I was privileged to work in a community that has been built, and funded still, by Canadians. There are 66 orphans being cared for there by women who have lost their husbands to death, one way or another.

James 1:27 says, “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father, is this, to care for widows and orphans in their trouble.”

This is the model that the “Village of Hope” is built on.

I, along with four other men from Canada, and Stephen from Malawi, prepared another home to be occupied, in the near future, by more children and another widow. I can tell you, it was difficult to work in 39 and 40 degree heat, but it was one of the most rewarding things I have ever been involved in.

I want to finish this today with a heartfelt ‘Thank you’ to all who made it possible for us to go there, and for the financial support we received that enabled us to provide school supplies, paint and money to furnish this new house so that the orphans, who otherwise would have no hope, can now be cared for, loved and educated and, I believe, make a difference in Malawi.

Malawi is called “The Warm Heart of Africa” and without a doubt that is true. But they need Help. The kind of help many of you gave to me to take to them. I can tell you, God knows who you are and He will bless you.

Bantam Bs big on offence, even bigger on defence

 

The South Dundas Bantam B Rep Lions had a very busy week, collecting seven out of a possible eight points and out-scoring their opponents 22-3.

The Lions were busy with three games in three days, two of them on the road.

They kicked it off in Alexandria on Saturday, November 5, when they handed the Glens a 6-0 loss. 

On Saturday, November 6 they were at the beautiful Benson Centre in Cornwall to battle the Colts for first place overall in the East standings, and when it was all over they had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

Putting that aside, they were at home to the South Stormont Selects on Monday, November 7, where they handed their opponents a crushing 7-1 loss.

Following a much deserved rest, their next game took them to Maxville this past Sunday, November 13 where they completed a very solid run with an 8-1 win against NGS.

Andrew Jarvis led the Lions attack against NGS in Maxville, Sunday, with a five point performance.

Greg Canham put NGS on the scoreboard on the first face off of the game, but that would be it, as the Lions dominated the remainder of the play.

Eight minutes in, with Toby Mullin in the penalty box for roughing, Evan Mullin, assisted by Josh Black, scored a shorthanded goal to even the contest.  With minutes remaining in the period, Andrew Jarvis (Quinn Bennis and Ben Michels) scored on the Lions power play for a 2-1 advantage.

Early in the second, the Lions scored another power play goal, this one from Randy Fawcett (Jarvis) when he was left all alone in the slot.

Jarvis scored his second of the game, unassisted, on an end to end rush to make it 4-1 for the Lions.

With a three goal advantage, the Lions collected four more in the third to put the game out of reach. 

Counters came from Jarvis who completed his three goal game, Aarron Smith (from Riley Black and Jarvis), affiliated player Trey Suddard and Toby Mullin.

On Monday, November 7, the Selects ran into some penalty problems early in the first period, which the Lions took advantage of for a power play goal by Randy Fawcett (Evan Mullin & Riley Barry).  After killing off back to back penalties, the Selects began to apply pressure, but the Lions held on to carry their one goal advantage into the second period.

Early in the second, Riley Barry scored on the Lions power play with help from Jarvis to give the Lions a 2-0 edge. 

At 4:29 of the frame, the Selects answered when the Lions couldn’t clear their own end. Their goal came from the stick of Jarett Cutler on a tip past a screened Zach Frawley. 

Four minutes later, Josh Black (Evan Mullin) scored to again put the Lions up by two.  Fawcett (from Ben Michels and Cameron Chayer) and Michels (from Quinn Bennis) put the Lions up 5-1.

The Lions added two goals in the third period from Quinn Bennis (assisted by Jarvis and Trey Suddard) and Jarvis (unassisted).  The game featured some great penalty killing from the defensive team of Jarvis, Bennis, Toby Mullin and Riley Black and solid play from goaltender Zach Frawley.

On Sunday, November 6, the Lions travelled to the beautiful Benson Centre to battle the Colts for first place overall in the East standings.

First period action saw both teams playing with caution until, Aarron Smith’s backhand shot beat Colts goaltender Dufrense to give the Lions a 1-0 lead. 

The second period was a scoreless affair, thanks to a big effort from Lions’ goaltender Zach Frawley in keeping the Colts off the scoreboard.

As the puck was dropped for the start of the third period, the Colts finally beat Frawley on a shot from the slot to tie the contest 1-1.

With the Lions spending some quality time in the penalty box, the Colts had many opportunities to put the game away, but the Lions were able to hold on for a 1-1 draw.

Zach Frawley was first star of the game.

Saturday November 5, the Lions scored less than a minute into the game with an Evan Mullin wrist shot as they worked their way to the 6-0 shut out against the Alexandria Glens. Mullin and Randy Fawcett led the effort with two goals apiece, and singles came from the sticks of Cameron Chayer and Andrew Jarvis.

The Lions are on the ice tonight at 8 p.m. to take on the Cornwall Colts. They travel to Smith Falls this Saturday night, November 19th for a 9 p.m. start.

The will also be competing in the upcoming Pembroke Silver Stick tournament in Pembroke, November 25th through November 27th.

Caring community shares during Stuff a Cruiser event

 

Mother Teresa once said, “if you can’t feed a hundred people, feed just one.”

On a chilly November 12th the OPP Auxiliary Unit held their second annual “Stuff a Cruiser with Food Drive” in locations across Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, including Riley’s Valu-Mart in Morrisburg.

OPP Auxiliary Constables Tyler Kelly and Mike Meagher were on hand from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. accepting donations of food, money and grocery gift cards at the Morrisburg location.

The chilly weather didn’t dampen the moods of the constables. Meagher told the Leader that “the energy and spirit keeps us going.”

The two were indeed kept quite busy throughout the day. In addition they were assisted by the Dundas County Food Bank (DCFB) as well as volunteers from Riley’s store, Karen Gelner and Shaina Lewis.

Meagher told the Leader that some people were coming to the store for the sole purpose of donating to the cause. He said one man had “heard over the radio and decided to make a swing over.”

Meagher applauded the community saying, “the need arises and they’re certainly here and supporting.”

Kelly said, “the kids like it too.” He had shown quite a few kids the inside of the police car, to great effect.

Some people filled entire grocery carts with donations, while others dropped money or gift cards into the donation jar.

“We love being involved in this and having the success we’ve had,” said Meagher.

DCFB Chair Brenda Millard greeted customers, handed out suggestion lists, and thanked people for their support. She bore witness to the extreme generosity of the people in this community. 

Once again, with the help of the OPP Auxiliary, the DCFB proved that together a community can make a difference. According to DCFB Administrator Donna Quesnel, “there were 11 trips made between Riley’s and the Food Bank.”

The Leader talked with a representative at the Morrisburg Food Bank location on November 14th and it was estimated that the six hour event raised 5,000 pounds of donations in addition to over $600 in money and gift cards.

On November 15th the SD&G OPP sent out a release outlining the success of the food drive throughout the United Counties.

“Once again, residents of SD&G showed their generosity in giving to worthy causes.”

The five locations raised approximately 13,900 pounds of food items and $2,925.77 in monetary donations.

Dundas

Proceeds from the Morrisburg and Winchester locations will go to the Dundas County Food Bank.

The total raised included approximately 6,400 pounds of food items and $1,155 in monetary donations.

This year, Dundas County collected 3,000 more pounds of food than it did at last year’s event.

Stormont

Proceeds from the Cornwall and Ingleside locations will go to the Agape Centre.

The total raised included approximately 4,000 pounds of food items and $947.27 in monetary donations.

Glengarry

Proceeds from the Alexandria location will go to the St. Vincent de Paul.

The total raised included approximately 3,500 pounds of food items and $823.50 in monetary donations.

SD&G OPP Auxiliary Unit Commander, S/Sgt Al Jodoin stated: “From all the members of the SD&G OPP Auxiliary Unit and Detachment, we wish to sincerely thank everyone for making this Food Drive a phenomenal success!”

For those wishing to make a donation to the Dundas County Food Bank, please phone one of the locations at 613-543-0065 or 613-774-0188.

Jr. B Lions knock off first place Glens, 5-3

 

It was a big weekend for the Morrisburg Junior B Lions.

Friday night on the Glens’ home turf, the Lions handed the St. Lawrence Division’s first place Glens a crushing 5-3 loss and then, back home on Sunday, they gave the Rideau Division’s first place Westport Rideaus all they could handle as the Rideaus collected a hard fought 6-4 victory.

“It was a gift from God, Friday night,” says Lions coach Thom Racine. “Ryan Cooper (Lions goaltender) had a great game. He really hasn’t played a lot. He made one of those impossible saves a minute into the game and from that point on the boys were behind him. We never trailed all night long.”

After a scoreless first period, the Lions went up 2-0 in the first three minutes of the second period.

Michael Poapst started it with an unassisted goal at 2:52 and at 3:25 Alex Steingruber set up Marc Antoine Kamel to push the Lions ahead by two.

Jean-Francois Dubois answered for the Glens at 11:54, but two minutes later Alex Ploof (from Zach Seguin) restored the Lions two-goal advantage.

Once again, the Lions couldn’t hold on to it, allowing the Glens one more from Philippe Paquette.

At 7:03 of the third period, the Glen’s Leo MacLean beat Cooper to tie the game 3-3.

“I thought when they tied it 3-3 with over 10 minutes to go that we were in trouble,” says Racine.

But a pair of Glens’ penalties turned the tables and allowed the Lions to collect one on their power play from Ryan Ward, assisted by Steingruber and Patrick Bzdyl.

“Then we took two horrible penalties, the first one (at 14:06) for too many men. I thought, ‘right, we just handed them a free opportunity to tie the game.” 

The Lions killed off the penalty, but no sooner than they did so, Poapst was nabbed for tripping. Again, the Lions were up for the task, and again they held off the Glens. An empty net counter from Alex Steingruber (assisted by Lance Hodgson) sealed the win.

“Our penalty kills were fantastic,” says Racine. (Marc Antonie) Kamel, (Brayden) Girard  and (Ryan) Ward are premier penalty killers. They know when to chase it and when not to chase it.” 

Racine also credited Alex Steingruber for bringing his A game to the match and Poapst who scored his seventh goal of the season and who “is just starting to find his touch.”

Their efforts were only out-shone by that of Cooper who faced 59 Glens shots and allowed only three to get past him. 

It was the start of a rough weekend for the Glens, who were handed two losses to now trail the first place Winchester Hawks.

For Friday night’s game in Morrisburg, Racine again, went with Cooper in net. “I felt that after the 59 shots, he deserved to play again. And he played really well. ”

The game kicked off with a 1-1 first period tie and by the end of the second the Rideaus held just a slim 4-3 advantage.

They went up 6-3 in the third before the Lions got them stopped with a Michael Poapst (from Brayden Girard and Michael Paquette) counter and that was it. The Rideaus hung on for the 6-4 win.

Michael Poapst scored from Michael Paquette in the first period and Michel Thurler (from Ward and Paquette) and Brayden Girard (from Michael Keenan) counted in the second period.

Racine says he was satisfied with the game, “we made them earn the win” but he wonders if it might have been a different outcome, had if the Lions had the two Veenstras (couldn’t make the game) and Bzdyl (injured) in the lineup.

This weekend the Lions have two must win games says Racine. This Friday night they host the Char-Lan Rebels at 8:30 p.m. and Sunday, November 20 they are on the road against Akwesasne.

The battle continues.

Cattle lives saved in four alarm fire

 

South Dundas Fire and Emergency Services has been hard at work this past week.

Thurler Farm

A fire at the Thurler Farm on  Snowbird Road was called in at 2:50 p.m. on November 11th. The first vehicle responded within three minutes of the call. Chief Chris McDonough was on the scene by 3:18 p.m.

According to McDonough, all three stations – Iroquois, Morrisburg, and Williamsburg – responded. In addition, McDonough also called in the South Mountain Fire Department.

McDonough told the Leader that “an off-duty fire fighter from Williamsburg drove directly” to the Thurler Farm.

Two coveralls used to cover the straw supply, tied down using tires, were on fire. Fire fighters went straight to work putting out these fires while also trying to eliminate the exposure to the barn, which held 500 head of dairy cattle.

The dairy barn and all cattle were saved thanks to the efforts of the fire fighters and mother nature. The chief said the strong wind blowing in the opposite direction was a great help to fire fighters in saving this barn.

Fire fighters were on location until 6 a.m. November 12th. They were called back in November 13th to put out more “hot spots.” McDonough said they were back for five hours putting out those fires.

In the end, the damage included 600 acres worth of crop. McDonough estimated the damage to be in the $220,000 range. No one was harmed in the fire.

As for the cause of the fire, “there was a lot of fire damage and there was nothing really we could go by.”

It is thought that a skid steer, which is “a piece of equipment used to supply straw bedding for the dairy barn,” created sparks “from the bucket scraping against the concrete.”

“I’m suspecting that. I’m not confirming that,” emphasized McDonough.

“We had help from Ault’s squatter tankers. We couldn’t keep up because we were taking up so much water,” including the entirety of Matilda’s water supply.

McDonough also mentioned the abundance of generosity: “The wives made sandwiches. The Thurlers ordered in pizza.”

12756 County Road 18

November 14th, at approximately three o’clock in the morning, a house fire was reported on County Road 18 just east of Williamsburg.

McDonough said it was a “coach house attached to an old farmhouse.”

“They extinguished the fire as soon as they got there.”

In terms of damage, McDonough said the “exterior and up to the roof line” was damaged. He estimated the damage to be “not more than $1,000.”

Again, no one was physically harmed in the fire.

Tough on crime

 

Guy Lauzon – MP Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry

OTTAWA – You may have heard our Conservative Government recently introduced the Safe Streets and Communities Act. It was part of our campaign platform. As a matter of fact we promised to pass it within the first 100 sitting days of Parliament if we were given a majority government. Canadians gave us a majority government and now we are delivering.

Many components of the Act have been debated repeatedly in past Parliaments. Every time we got close to putting this legislation into law, the opposition parties would put a halt to it. They claim to be tough on crime but when “push comes to shove” they always vote against tougher laws. Our Government was given a strong mandate to keep working for the safety of Canadian families and we will. We will continue to stand up for victims rather than criminals.  

This Act entitled C-10 includes components like:

– increased penalties for sexual offences against children.

– tougher sentences for organized drug crime.

– ending house arrest for serious crimes.

– providing victims with the right to attend parole hearings.

– eliminating pardons for serious crimes.

– increased protection for vulnerable immigrants from human trafficking and exploitation. 

– Sebastien’s law: to better the public from violent and repeat young offenders.

In addition to remaining focused on the economic recovery and the safety of Canadians we are also moving forward with other key legislation that prevents human smugglers from taking advantage of our immigration system. We are improving Canadian democracy by upholding the principle that every vote cast should be of equal value through seat redistribution, and finally after many attempts blocked by the opposition parties, we will at last get rid of the long-gun registry once and for all. 

I am proud of our record since receiving our Majority mandate in the May 2 election. We are getting it done!

Guy Lauzon 

Member of Parliament
