Organizers of the McNab Days lead-off events, the Riverdrive and Tartan Run and Sunday Stretch, couldn't have asked for better weather for the event, which went off without a hitch June 23-24. Early estimates indicate at least 400 people attended Saturday's Riverdrive and flotilla event at Red Pine Bay. Friday's Calling of the Clans kicked off McNab Days and was well attended with around 100 people in attendance. The township festival festivities carry on this week with several events and this weekend with a Heritage Trail celebration Saturday (see Page 14) and Canada Day festivities in Braeside Sunday. With a Vintage Wings Havelin Beaver float plane docked ashore and a slew of vessels old and new arriving from Quebec's Norway Bay as part of the Baie to Bay flotilla, Red Pine Bay came alive with many activities for the locals and visitors out to enjoy the day Saturday. The W.D. Stalker, the last known alligator boat or amphibious warping tug, was in attendance once again this year, along with a vintage scow used to house loggers more than 100 years ago in the logging boom that led to the settlement of the Ottawa Valley. Dignitaries, including McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell, Pontiac Mayor Brent Orr, RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski and Renfrew County Warden Bob Sweet, joined committee co-chairs Heather Lang and Neil Masson at opening ceremonies Saturday.

But the issue will continue to smolder. Fire prevention officer Cory Nicholas presented the idea of updating the recreational open air burning bylaw at Monday's council meeting. The current bylaw dates back to 1978 when some residents burned garbage, but few did it strictly for fun. Today, with the popularity of manufactured recreational appliances that help limit a fire's capacity, and the rising cost of campground permits, more people are having fires on their properties. "The existing bylaw does not address or regulate outdoor burning for recreational purposes, which are the most common burning requests and/or complaints received by the fire service today," reads Nicholas's report. "The proposed bylaw looks at regulating only recreational burning with stringent conditions attached." Proposed costs to residents were: � $50 for a one-time permit and $125 for a season-long permit; � if the fire department is forced to attend the scene, another $100 to $350 fee to recover costs would apply; See BACKYARD, Page 2 EMC events - Arnprior and Braeside will join other communities across the country this Sunday in celebrating the country's 145th birthday. The Arnprior celebration will be centred as usual at Robert Simpson Park, although there will be other attractions such as the car show and Rotary duck race at Hydro Park. The main change this year is the switching of the children's parade from the Christian Education Centre to the park to 2 p.m. instead of the usual 11:30 a.m. The change was made because Canada Day is a Sunday and 11:30 is too early for some church-goers. The official opening is still set for noon. The Braeside Canada Day parade and festivities at the RA Centre wrap up McNab Days. The parade is at its usual place (starting from the fire hall) and time (10:45 a.m.). For the full schedules of both Arnprior and Braeside celebrations, see pages 16 and 17.

Committee seeks clarity on contradicting bylaws restricting use on sidewalks Derek Dunn Derek.firstname.lastname@example.org � if the fire department is forced on the scene where a homeowner doesn't have any permit, a fee between $150 and $900 would apply, "I fundamentally have a real problem with this," Reeve Walter Stack said. "My backyard is my backyard." Stack went on to say the average homeowner already pays about $2,500 a year in taxes to cover fire service. He said families are struggling as it is in this economy, and that this recommendation is just another attempt to tax and regulate constituents. Coun. Lynn Grinstead agreed, but added that backyard fires are enjoyed by families that can't afford a cottage. Nicholas said neighbours have a right to enjoy their backyards without smoke affecting their laundry or waking up in the middle of the night to the smell of smoke. Nicholas was asked for the number of times the department has responded and the number of complaints made. They have responded to seven incidents totalling 98 man hours. They have fielded 33 inquiries and complaints. Many councillors agreed the numbers seemed low, but that a public education campaign would help bring them down lower. Coun. Dan Lynch agreed with the report. The chair of the protective services advisory committee, which also supports the proposed bylaw changes, suggested the fire department provide training for anyone who buys a fire bowl or chiminea. "If you want a fire bowl, don't put it on the balcony," he said. "Have a firefighter inspect it first." Mayor David Reid said he agrees with the process, but not the cost. He said rules should be in place, and that fines should be issued if folks don't follow the rules, but that permit fees are unnecessary. The vote to accept the draft bylaw revisions was knotted three to three, resulting in the rejection of the recommendations. Coun. Mark Wilmer did not attend the meeting. EMC news � Confusion over where skateboarding and similar activities are permitted in town was to be discussed at a committee meeting last night, June 27. Bylaw 5140-03, found under "Frequently requested bylaws" on the town's website, prohibits the use of bicycles, skateboards, inline skating and similar devices on sidewalks in the "downtown core." The downtown core is between Madawaska, Daniel, McGonigal and Hugh streets. However, bylaw 6000-11, found a few entries below on the website, reads "No person upon roller blades, skateboards or riding in or by means of a coaster, toy vehicle or similar device shall go upon any sidewalk or roadway, except while crossing a street on a crosswalk." It is unclear if a bylaw officer could successful level the $65 fine for anyone skateboarding outside the core. CLARIFICATION WANTED Photo by Derek Dunn Bicycles, skateboards and many other modes of transportation that promote a healthy lifestyle while reducing the carbon footprint are banned from downtown sidewalks. But whether or not skateboards, rollerblades and the like are banned from every sidewalk in town is unclear. The topic was to be raised at an advisory committee meeting last night. purposes," he said, insisting the latter bylaw, dated 2011, trumps the 2003 regulation, adding "it has always been in place." He was unaware of the contradicting bylaws. Asked if he favours a townwide ban on skateboarding on streets and sidewalks, Anderson cited an instance of kids with ramps set up on a town road as not following common sense. He noted that the skateboard park will be expanded, but declined comment on those who believe teenagers should be allowed to take their skateboards to the skateboard park for additional exercise and fresh air. His top concern is with possible lawsuits. "If one of these children on one of these devices takes a serious fall and ends up under a vehicle, we (the municipality) are going to be liable," he said. "It's a public safety issue." Four resident members of the advisory board have children at skateboarding age, according to Anderson. The policy committee meeting took place after this issue's deadline. SKATE PARK Coun. Lyle Anderson is chair of the policies, procedures and bylaws advisory committee that was to deal with the issue at the council chambers meeting. "It's just for clarification Meanwhile, the new skateboard ramps have been ordered for the park outside the Nick Smith Centre and should arrive within two to three weeks. Recreation director Glenn Arthur explained that most of the ramps will come assembled. It's a matter of arranging a crane to set them in place, he said. Once that is done, the town will hold a grand re-opening of the skateboard park. KSL Design is doing the $45,000 project for the town.

TARTAN RUN SUNDAY Ray and Karen Pender and their grandchildren Owen and Lauren watch as a vintage boat makes it way into shore as the Baie to Bay flotilla arrives at Red Pine Bay Saturday. This year's McNab Days was bigger and better than ever. Photos by Sherry Haaima Yakabuski congratulated organizers and said the event was a great tribute to those who worked so hard years ago in the logging industry and to those who still make a living in the area's forests. Sweet said the event is a wonderful example of how the river doesn't separate Ontario and Quebec, but joins the two provinces. "It's great to see the two communities working together," he said. Ottawa Riverkeeper Meredith Brown and the Bonnechere River Watershed Project's Kathy Lindsay brought greetings and support from their respective organizations. Among those Campbell thanked were officials of Norfolk County (home of the Alligator boat) and the crew of the W.D. Stalker, the organizing committee, Bill Connelly, John Brady, roads superintendent Brian Box, and recreation director Geoff Patterson. Ontario Power Generation sponsors joined Campbell and others in an official opening the Braeside Beach, which is now available for the first time in some 40 years. The local company M. Sullivan and Son was also thanked, along with OPG, for its support for the work completed to make the beach a use- Sunday's first annual Tartan Run drew about 50 participants who donned hats, kilts and other tartan garb for the five-kilometre fun run. Adam McKinty finished the run well ahead of most of the competition in 22:09, winning the men's firstplace bragging rights and a fire helmet for his efforts. Lisa McGregor's time of 24:32 earned her first-place female honours and a helmet of her own. Piper Bobby Smith of the ArnpriorBraeside-McNab Pipes and Drums led runners in a procession to the starting line and piped as runners crossed the rope finish line. Campbell said the response was strong enough to make the Tartan Run a permanent fixture at McNab Days. There were ideas suggested that can be implemented for next year's event, she added. Tai chi demonstrations and pioneer displays continued from Saturday into Sunday. Campbell said interest was expressed in starting a tai chi class in the township. If at least 10 students can be signed up, lessons could be given in McNab-Braeside, she said. NE W & USED HOME F URNISHINGS decorate for less!

R0011474102-0628 4 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, June 28, 2012 John Carter Group to investigate dog park sites and costs said the group would be tasked to ask for local input, look into possible locations and determine costs before coming to council with a recommendation. He said McLean Park is only one of the sites the subcommittee will consider. People opposed to having a waterfront area set aside for as a dog park should understand that it would only be down one end of the area, he added. Arthur explained that supporters of having a dog park in that area felt it would help keep the geese and gulls and their droppings off the beach. Arnprior Councillors asked about the project during Monday's meeting. Reeve Walter Stack wanted to make sure town staff wouldn't be responsible for cleaning the park. "I don't want us paying recreation people $50 an hour to clean up after dogs," he said. Arthur said volunteers will clean up after the dogs. Stack also asked for information on how often the baseball diamonds are used. Coun. Ted Strike wanted to know how much space needs to be set aside for a dog park. Arthur speculated no more than one acre of fenced-in area. Coun. Dan Lynch suggested Arthur get an update from Brockville, a community the recreation director visits a few years ago when the issue NEWS Your Community Newspaper John.email@example.com EMC news � Plans to set up a dog park in Arnprior are moving ahead. Town staff met last week with Megan Noel, the woman who circulated a petition calling for an off-leash dog park, with the goal of setting up a subcommittee of the recreation advisory committee to investigate the matter. About 300 people signed the petition. Recreation director Glenn Arthur came up. Lynch would like to know if Brockville's dog park is working well or has since shut down. The nearest dog park to Arnprior is at Bruce Pit, in the Bells Corners area of Ottawa, although plans are also in their early stages for a dog park in Renfrew. A spot in Arnprior would likely attract dog owners from West Carleton and elsewhere. -with files from Derek Dunn R0011472091-0628 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, June 28, 2012 5 Stop sign changes coming to William Street Derek Dunn firstname.lastname@example.org NEWS Your Community Newspaper EMC news � Signs. Signs. With the shutdown of railway service along William Street West, the town will revise stop signs in the area. Only two stop signs will slow traffic along the stretch from the LCBO to Division Street South. When the decision was made at Monday's council meeting, Coun. Lynn Grinstead said cars already drive too fast along the stretch near Kenwood Centre, and it will be "very scary" between John and Edward streets, and Edward Street and Division. "I have great concerns for this," Grinstead said. "I can see that being a highway." She is also worried about the safety of students crossing streets in the area. All other councillors disagreed, saying William will now reroute some traffic away from Daniel and Division; that if vehicles are going too fast more stop signs could be introduced later; and that roads such as John Street South go farther without stop signs and they pose little danger. "I think it's the best solution for the problem," Coun. Ted Strike said. Mayor David Reid indicated that three-way stop signs should be phased out. The stop signs will look like the following: � John Street South/North � a four-way stop at the intersection of William and John streets, replacing the three-way stop with a stop added to John when travelling south; � MacDonald Street South/North � a twoway stop at the intersection of William and MacDonald, with MacDonald being the stops, and William being the through street, replacing the existing three-way stop; � Edward Street South � a four-way stop at the intersection of William and Edward, replacing the existing three-way stop with the addition of a stop on Edward travelling south; � McLachlin Street South/North � a twoway stop at the intersection of William and McLachlin, with McLachlin travelling north and south being the stops, and William being the through street, replacing the existing threeway stop. Town staff wants the work done before linepainting is done in late July. Council let it be known that traffic will be monitored, possibly by the new speed indicator machine. A study examining all stop signs in town will be presented to council in the future. DOWNTOWN DESIGN DEFERRED Council rejected a staff recommendation to award the "streetscape and landscape design plan" to the third lowest bidder. The contract is related to a revamp of the downtown core, meaning new streetlights, benches, and related tourist-attracting measures. Eleven companies applied for the contract, with bids ranging from $24,900 to $85,000. But staff wants to go with McIntosh Perry at $39,900. Planner Robin Smith admitted the recommendation was "a little subjective," but that McIntosh's specific experience and "shelf ready" plan were superior. Reeve Walter Stack said council should see more information on criteria, scoring and comparables before agreeing to go about 35 per cent above the lowest bid. He said the municipality should be fair to the lowest bidder and taxpayers. Mayor David Reid stressed the importance of having the downtown business improvement area and chamber of commerce part of the decision-making process. A public meeting will also hear suggestions on the streetscape and landscaping plan. Council deferred the decision for two weeks, giving staff time to bring forward more information. OK given for seniors apartment Derek Dunn email@example.com Canlok Stone Inc. EMC news � Some trepidation was expressed at Monday's council meeting over a proposed development downtown. Graham Riley told council that drainage and traffic are ongoing problems at the house his daughter, Brenda, lives in on MacDonald Street North. The Rileys appeared to be the only two with concerns at a public meeting over zoning changes at 106 McGonigal St. before council got underway. The site will likely see a 19-unit apartment complex for low-income seniors. Council approved the zoning changes after town planner Robin Smith explained that drainage will be directed toward a culvert in the middle of a new parking lot, which should alleviate problems at the Rileys. "It should really help their drainage," Smith said. Traffic shouldn't be too bad, Smith said, because most of the affordable housing tenants � one or two to a unit likely won't have cars. A few extra cars could appear on weekends when family visits. Developers Peter Anas and Jim Sawyer are partnering with government to create the affordable housing. A shortage of housing for all low income people exists, but there is an understanding that seniors would prefer to be in a building exclusive to elderly people. Shovels could hit the ground for the multi-million dollar project as early as late July. DEVELOPMENT DELAYED The contentious Fourth Av- enue residential development has experienced a setback. A public meeting set to start before council's June 25 meeting was cancelled. The housing proposal would see between 76 and 84 mixed residential units on two new internal roads and a cul-de-sac, all connecting to Fourth Avenue. However, planner Robin Smith said developer Dave Simpson is realigning some of the properties and needs time reformulate the proposal. "The developer is contemplating minor changes to the lotting of the plan that may affect the zoning required," Smith wrote in a memo to council. About 20 avenues homeowners crammed council chambers in early January with concerns over backyard privacy related to the development.

Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, June 28, 2012 7 OPINION Your Community Newspaper Teachers' common sense revival The teachers are mad as hell, and they're not going to take it any more. Well, maybe not quite. But there is heartening news to see that common sense still prevails amongst many teachers, and they're starting to move beyond the silent majority and actually become more vocal. The best example is of physics teacher Lynden Dorval, who teaches at Ross Sheppard High School in Edmonton, who gave students zeroes for not handing in assignments. It's not as though he didn't give them warning. His standard practice is to show students who are tardy in handing in their work a printout of what their final mark would look like at the end of the year with a zero. "Once I give that printout, I get a flood of assignments," he was quoted as saying in the Ottawa Citizen. But, last month, Dorval got a letter from Edmonton Public Schools, informing him that he "chose this very public and destructive course of action," and that he was being suspended for his actions. This type of "too-big-to-fail" attitude is exactly what made the financial crisis of 2008 all the more worse. It's not a helpful attitude to be instilling in our children. Our children need to know that there are consequences, real, tangible ones, that can affect their future. Better that they get a bit a small jolt now in school, while the stakes are comparatively smaller, and the behaviour can be corrected as their brains are developing, than later on in life, when they wonder why security is leading them out the door at the office after they've cleaned out their desk following a trip from the boss's office. Telling kids they can keep failing, with no regard for consequences, is the real "destructive course of action." Proponents say it helps kids get through the school system, but really, it's just passing the buck, pass them along, and let them sink or swim once they get to college or university or the work world. That's doing the kids no favours. "It's a way of pushing kids through and making the stats look good, but at what cost?" wondered Dorval. "It's not benefitting the students." Another teacher who is not afraid to tell it like it is English teacher David McCullough, son of the Pulitzer Prize winning historian and EDITORIAL writer of the same name, who told the graduating class at his private high school in Wellelsey, Massachusetts, that "you're not special." Anyone who has ever had to sit through recitations of the typical pabulum regurgitated at a graduation in a hot, stuffy auditorium would likely have cheered at his words. Stephanie Hanes, writing in The Christian Science Monitor, wrote that he have gave "graduates a dose of reality." "Do not get the idea you're anything special," said McCullough. "Because you're not." (Not for him a monotone recitation of Dr. Seuss' Oh The Places You'll Go.) McCullough later told CBS News that "my intention was a little hyperbolic drollness to get their attention so they would pay attention," he said, always a difficult task to keep a crowd's attention. He wanted them to wait for the pay off at the end � an example of delayed gratification for a greater purpose � and in closing, asked the graduates to "exercise free will and creative and independent thoughts, not for the satisfactions they will bring you, but for the good they will do others, the rest of the 6.8 billion � and those who will follow them ... The sweetest joys of life, then, come only with the recognition that you're not special. Because everyone is." Now, we don't want it to seem like we are beating up solely on administrative staff. Even they have members with common sense amongst their ranks. One teacher who was sorely lacking in common sense was a Grade 10 history teacher at Cavelier-de-LaSalle high school in Montreal who showed his students a tape of the alleged murder and dismemberment of Chinese student Jun Lin. The teacher was suspended, and school board spokesman Jean-Michel Nahas told the QMI Agency that "the school board and the school unanimously denounce this action." It may be an extreme example, but it is heartening to see that, for once, this was a nobrainer. No exclamations of his right to free speech or expression, with his teacher's union rushing to his defence. No academic, condescending sniff that he was only trying to teach kids to critically deconstruct (no pun intended) images and media, and critical thinking skills. At least we can be glad that he didn't fight it. The kids in his class are scarred for life now, but at least he will be removed from the classroom where he can do no harm, and a sad lesson has been learned here: You did wrong. You admit as such. You will be punished. A simple, straightforward lesson for our children, taught by way of example. Web Poll Poll Results Should plastic garbage bags be banned across the province and country? THIS WEEK'S QUESTION Who should take the lead role in tackling the growing problem of obesity in children? Yes. It's time society took risks to the environment more seriously for the betterment of future generations. A) 29% Parents. They need to be good role models for their children. Proper eating and exercise habits start at home A) No. The change will likely results in higher costs that will ultimately be passed on to already-stressed consumers. B) B) Schools. They should be do more to encour6% age students to avoid junk food and do proper exercise. Make physical education mandatory in every grade. Keep plastic bags for consumer purchase but increase the cost to 25 cents, with assurance the money will go directly to local waste management programs. C) 18% C) Governments. They need to provide incentives to make healthy food and sports -exercise programs more affordable and save on health costs in the long term. It's not easy for cash-strapped families when junk food is much cheaper than fresh vegetables and soda pop is less expensive than juice. D) Keep the status quo. Plastic shopping bags are the most common way people collect in-house garbage and a ban would cause an unnecessary burden on the average citizen. 47% D) Nobody. If people want to have fat kids, that's their right.

Since that time, we have spoken with hundreds of physicians in Eastern Ontario, in meetings, at hospital medical staff meetings and in their offices. First of all, and most importantly, there is no doubt that patient care will be affected. We have heard that cuts to anesthesiology will compromise surgery in smaller centres, necessitating longer wait times for procedures that will only be available further from home. We have learned that wait times for cardiology have increased as family physicians and specialists try to ensure the standard of care without triggering fee cuts, which would mean costs would not be covered. Finally, we believe that access will be seriously affected by the fact that physicians no longer feel welcome in Ontario. Our graduating students and residents are seeking work in other parts of Canada and older physicians are seriously considering retiring rather than trying to manage a practice in the context of cutbacks. These developments are very distressing and unnecessary. We ask patients in Ottawa and eastern Ontario to contact their MPP and ask them to urge the government to come back to the table and negotiate fairly with doctors Doctors and government must work together in the best interests of patients.

I was surprised by this revelation and started to do a little digging. According to Bylaw Number 5140-03, it "prohibits the use of bicycles, skateboards, in-line skating and similar devices on sidewalks in the `Downtown Core'." The `Downtown Core' means the areas of town enclosed by Madawaska Street, Daniel Street, McGonigal Street and Hugh Street. The sidewalks on both sides of these streets are deemed to be contained within this area. I have no issue with the existing bylaw as it stands because of pedestrian traffic, businesses in the area, etc. However I do have an issue with the fact that the Policies, Procedures and Bylaws Advisory Committee is looking to amend this bylaw using ambiguous wording, which for all intents and purposes would ban the use of skateboards, inline skating and similar devices on all sidewalks and streets in Arnprior. I thought the goal of all levels of government was to promote physical exercise and active living among youth not to discourage it. It was suggested that the boys go to the skatepark at the Nick Smith Centre if they wanted to skateboard. Are they to carry their skateboards there, as they are not allowed to ride them on the streets? With kids spending so much time playing video games or on their computers, should we not be encouraging any and all forms of physical activity? This proposed new bylaw is under review and was be presented at the Policies, Procedures and Bylaws Advisory Committee meeting on Wednesday, June 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the Town Hall in the Council Chambers. If your kids take part in these activities and you would like them to be able to continue to do so, you should have your opinion heard. Bev Hicke Arnprior Hospital's care makes you feel safe To The Editor: We here in the town of Arnprior are so lucky to have not only a great town but also a great hospital. My son and I have lived here for almost five years; we love this town, it has been a great place to find peace and happiness and the people here are so warm and friendly. In the course of our time here, we have twice had to use the services of the hospital. Just last week my son, while helping a friend move, jammed his finger in door of his truck so off to the Emergency he went. He was seen, taken care of, and back home within a couple of hours. The care he received from the nurses and the doctor was wonderful. As a health care professional, I have found myself on the other side of the gurney; on May 14 I was admitted for day surgery under the care of Dr. Syme to have my gallbladder removed. From the time I walked in at 7.30 until the time I was discharged at 2.30, I had outstanding care from all involved. Each time, for whatever reason we have gone to the hospital, we have always had not only professional and prompt care, but always kind and caring service. The kind of care that makes you feel safe and well taken care of, not just a number waiting your turn. A great big thank you to each and everyone of you! Tina Cuerrier Arnprior `Austerity' measures leading world to ruin To the editor; Re: Gathering Storm editorial, Chronicle Guide EMC, May 31. I see no reason for your concern that Canadians will join the Greeks, the Irish and all of the other world citizens opposed to the antiprosperity "austerity" measures being imposed by foreign banks upon countless countries for the purpose of devastating their economies and making them ripe for plunder by foreign multinationals -- a practice advocated by Friedman-school economists, backed by the multinationals, adopted by foolish governments, and accepted by entrepreneurs the world over who think they will benefit despite the mountains of evidence to the contrary. Canadians have not gotten off the couch over election fraud, unconstitutional laws eroding our rights, trade deals that sell our sovereignty, ever-increasing unemployment and job insecurity, skyrocketing prices, and the imminent removal of our social safety nets and basic freedoms. Therefore, I see no danger that Canadians will do anything but stand by and watch as our final shreds of hope, sustenance and dignity are stripped away by an invalid government and by foreign interests. The IMF, WTO and World Bank don't need bombs to achieve world domination. Just highly placed morons who fall for their scam and a lot of complacent citizens who won't bestir themselves to consider the inevitable consequences of their leaders' actions. So, when your little chain of papers succumbs to "austerity" and you join the majority of Canadians in destitution - as your counterparts in many countries have done - I'll be saying, "I told you so."

Towering hardwood forests cast shade on the leaves of trilliums and hepaticas. Extensive tracts of White Pine, the trees that first brought industry to our region, line river shores. Younger forests have sprung up where poor-yielding fields have been abandoned. And rivers, lakes, and ponds adorn the landscape all through the region. Other wetlands abound. Cedar swamps, undoubtedly more common before cedar fence posts came into fashion, border streams and lowlands. The Madawaska Highlands provide cooler recesses in which northern peatlands form. Bogs and fens are floating worlds where Sphagnum Moss harbours carnivorous plants such as Pitcher-plants and Ericaceous shrubs such as Labrador Tea. While bogs receive their water and nutrients only from precipitation, fens receive theirs from moving water. White Lake is home to a very special fen, one that harbours many unusual plants and animals. Last Sunday I led a small group of Macnamara Field Naturalists' Club members into the White Lake Fen in search of orchids and other treasures. R0011484818 Michael Runtz Nature's Way On our way to the fen we walked through a dark cedar and spruce swamp. Here we encountered dozens of Showy Lady's-slippers, all in peak flower. Seed stalks of Pink and Yellow lady'sslippers were also seen. Not all of the orchids were as conspicuous as the lady'sslippers; the tiny Green Adders-mouths were never seen until nearly underfoot. A thousand pink orchids greeted our arrival at the fen. Most were Rose Pogonias, stunning little orchids with a bearded lower lip. We saw one pure white individual, the rare albiform, which I had not seen before. Less common but still well represented were taller Grass Pinks whose bearded lip (labellum) lay atop the flower, not on the bottom as in pogonias and other orchids. Pogonias and Grass Pinks both look as if they have a rich supply of pollen on their lip. However, the buffet is merely a ruse for the masses are modified hairs. By deceiving hungry bees, the clever orchids achieve their pollination. Grass Pinks ensure their insect visitors do the job by dropping them onto their sexual organs via a collapsing petal, one triggered into action by the bee's weight. We also saw White Bog Orchids, which smell like cloves, poking their tall white columns above carnivorous Pitcher-plants and sundews Looking down as we walked allowed us to see the tiny Elfin Skimmers, which at less than an inch in length are the smallest dragonflies in North America! The males bear a characteristic coat of white pruinescence while the black-andyellow females looked much more like bees. Sphagnum Sprites, tiny damselflies that weakly flew off whenever we approached, and poison-spined Buck Moth caterpillars, were other entomological highlights. We are privileged to have rare habitats such as the White Lake Fen right in our backyard. If you want see Elfin Skimmers and Grass Pinks, why not join the Macnamara Field Naturalists' Club (mfnc.ca)? Next year we will return to the fen and many other habitats to see old friends and make new acquaintances.

NCC promotes Gillies Grove as tourism destination for all Canadians to enjoy EMC news � The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is celebrating 50 years of conservation by inviting Canadians to take Time for Nature this summer. And that includes encouraging the public to visit Arnprior's jewel, the old-growth forest in Gillies Grove. In a news release Tuesday, NCC challenged Canadians to incorporate nature into their summer vacation plans, and then to share those experiences, through the Time for Nature website: www.natureconservancy.ca/timefornature. "Whether it be hiking, birding, camping, canoeing, or simply exploring the nature in your backyard or neighbourhood, each Time for Nature story shared on the website will inspire others to reconnect with the natural world," it says. The challenge is part of the nation's leading land conservation organization's 50th anniversary celebrations, and is designed to encourage more Canadians to appreciate and enjoy all that nature offers. NCC is also thanking Canadians for their generous support by inviting them to see some of the places they have helped NCC to conserve -- in total, more than 2.6 million acres (1 million hectares), coast to coast. NCC has more than a few suggestions to help Canadians choose where to spend their Time for Nature and reconnect with the natural world. The Time for Nature website, www. natureconservancy.ca/timefornature highlights NCC properties and natural areas across the country that are perfect for reconnecting with nature. In Ontario, NCC is urging people and families to visit several properties that offer spectacular views and experiences. The news release highlights three: � Gilles Grove, nestled within the eastern community of Arnprior, that is home to majestic hemlocks, maples and one of the last remaining old-growth white pine communities; � Florian Diamante Nature Reserve on Pelee Island that boasts tree and shrub alvar, with open meadows perfect for viewing migrant songbirds and rare plants such as Short aster. � Happy Valley Forest north of Toronto with 110 breeding bird species, including the hooded warbler and the Acadian flycatcher. For more NCC properties to visit in Ontario, visit www.natureconservancy.ca/en/where-we-work/ontario/visit. Meanwhile, staff at NCC are leading by example. This summer, in a Canadian first, all staff at the organization will turn off their cell phones and email for a few days, and leave the office behind to reconnect with the great outdoors. Their adventures will help them to renew their appreciation for the natural world they work to protect every day. The health benefits of nature are many and well documented, and include lowering stress, improving mood and cognitive function and reducing allergies and other inflammatory diseases, says the NCC. A 2010 poll by Ipsos Reid showed that nine in 10 Canadians agreed they are happier when they feel connected to nature. In a related story, MoneySense Magazine ranks the Nature Conservancy of Canada as Canada's top environmental charity. For the third year in a row, the NCC is recognized as one of Canada's most responsible and efficient charities.

The township councillor was among the first to perform the ritual of placing a wooden torch on a fire, a way in Scottish heritage to unite families, share information, prepare for war or similar. Of the 100 or so at the event, which is about the same number as at last year's inaugural version, few could say they understand their background as clearly as Campbell. His family has been on the same property since 1825, when Peter Campbell arrived with the Laird of McNab to settle this part of the world. But all that could change. "I am Bob Campbell of the Clan Campbell," he said moments before taking his torch. "And Clan Campbell of the Dochart comes here today to reaffirm our commitment to our families, communities and this great gathering." He explained that his family settled on the banks of the Dochart Creek in McNab Township, farmed, prospered, and gained more land. Peter Campbell, whom Mayor Mary Campbell also traces her linage back to, was one of the three leaders in forming the Friendly Society that petitioned for the notorious Laird of McNab's removal and the establishment of self-government by the people. McNab was the only area in Canada pressing for what would eventually evolve into today's municipal governance system. David, left, and Kyle Felhaver entertain the crowd of some 100 people at the Waba Museum grounds last Friday night with Celtic music. Taking a break from dancing is Kyle's little girl, Addison. Peter Campbell served as the township's first clerk, while his oldest son would serve as reeve in 1854. Peter's great-grandson Gordon served as deputy reeve in 1959. As proud as he is that his family has been on the same spot of land for 187 years, Campbell could be the last. "I have a son. He lives in Edmonton," Campbell said. "That could be the last of it." Meanwhile, Mayor Campbell said she was pleased with the number of children and grandchildren that were included in the Calling of the Clans ceremony this year. "It's good to see the next generation getting involved," she said. "They'll be the stewards of our heritage." 25% O F F A L L P L A N T S Photos by Derek Dunn Bob Campbell carries a torch to the fire during the June 22 Calling of the Clans.

There's a euchre night in White Lake with a Scottish favour Friday; a heritage trail celebration on the McNab-Braeside Recreation Trail and a Burnstown heritage home and garden tour, both on Saturday; and the Braeside Canada Day festivities Sunday. The euchre night this Friday, June 29 starts at 7:30 p.m. is hosted by the White Lake Women's Institute in their hall. McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell is billing the event as a good opportunity for inexperienced euchre players who would like to learn the popular card game. After eight games, the Felhavers will once again provide the music and Scottish eats will be served. HERITAGE TRAIL On Saturday, June 30, people are encouraged to walk, run, cycle or ride a horse on the recreational trail. Folks can also take a driving tour and catch the displays in three locations where the trail intersects with Division Street, Campbell Drive and Milton Stewart Road. They will be set up from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. On the Poole Street trail entrance off Division, Arnprior and McNabBraeside Archives president John Smith will set up a `McNab Papers' CD display. The primary purpose of this year's McNab Days' Heritage Trail event is to promote the CD. It contains copies of documents and correspondence between original settlers, land agents and the Laird himself. They are full of disputes and intrigue. There is an index that sorts the documents by Lot and Concession, so anyone can look up what was happening with their property in the years 1825 to 1880. There is also some annotated history where known for each property. The Federal Government has launched a project in preparation for Canada's 150th in 2017 where each community is encouraged to collect its stories. This CD is a good start and can be expanded upon as a project for 2017, noted Campbell. At Campbell Drive, story-teller `Kristy Campbell' will relate the goings-on of the 11th and 12th Concessions, circa 1855. As `Kristy', Mayor Campbell will be serving lemonade and shortbread at the intersection of the recreation trail and Campbell Drive overlooking the farm of her great grandfather Malcolm, Kristy's son, and filling people in on the gossip of what was happening on the concessions close to 150 years ago. On the Milton Stewart crossing, site of the old Glasgow train station, there will be a barbecue provided by the Renfrew County Ribfest award winners from the McNab-Braeside fire department. Also on hand will be Sparky the fire safety dog and Bill and Gloria Hamilton telling stories of the bygone times in and around Glasgow.

The parade, which begins at the arena at 7 p.m., is just the thing to officially get the party started. Murphy asks anyone wishing to participate to contact the Recreation and Culture Department at 613256-1077. Mississippi Mills Mayor John Levi and Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP Gordon O'Connor and MPP Jack MacLaren will take part in the procession. "We typically have 30 or 40 entries," says Murphy, "and it lasts approximately 45 minutes." The evening also highlights local entertainment with Doug Russell and fiddler Kyle Felhaver inside the arena, beginning at 8 p.m. The day ends with a spectacular fireworks display at dusk, says Murphy. Don't forget to deck yourself out in red and white, he adds. Residents can join the Mississippi Mills Fire Department back in Pakenham on Canada Day for a pancake breakfast, running 7 to 11 a.m. at the hall. Later, Gemmill Park in Almonte will host a day of Canada Day fun. Musical entertainment runs from 1 to 5 p.m., and features Ottawa's MonkeyJunk, 2012 Juno Award winner for Best Blues Album.

CWL proclaims Arnprior area's top pie makers John Carter John.email@example.com EMC lifestyle � Arnprior's best pie bakers have been proclaimed. Let the bragging rights begin. Patsy Russett, Jackie Lavictoire and the bakers at the Antrim Truck Stop were the winners of a contest organized by the St. John Chrysostom Catholic Women's League (CWL). The contest was held in conjunction with Arnprior's 150th anniversary celebrations. The CWL held the contest at Robert Simpson Park June 9 during anniversary weekend. Five pie categories were featured, with four open to individuals from the community and one for local businesses. Russett cleaned up in the individual contests, winning the butterscotch, apple and raisin categories. Lavictoire was victorious with her rhubarb pie. The pies were judged based on taste and presentation. It was the first time Russett, who lives in McNab-Braeside, has entered a pie contest. "I love to bake for family and friends," she said. Lavictoire has plenty of baking experience, having previously worked in the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital kitchen for about 15 years. At 5 p.m., local businesses squared off for bragging rights to the best coconut cream pie in town. Antrim Truck Stop Bakery beat out the competition to earn a blue ribbon for their pie. Judges commented that it was a tough choice, but the overall points reflected the winner. CWL spokeswoman Kristine Dewar thanked all the contestants and the judges for helping make the contest a success. KARGUS Real Estate Inc.

She was one of only two recipients for the Algonquin Hills (Renfrew Country) Scout Area. In all, 39 Scouts from across Eastern Ontario earned the honour.

Its mission is to enable members to maintain their contact with Scouting and each other for their shared benefit and for the vital support and development of Scouting in Canada.

Recently, students from Queen's and the University of Ottawa, who were completing placements at ADMH, were also treated to several visits in and around Arnprior and McNab-Braeside to enjoy various features and attractions. Hosting the students is not new, says ADMH CEO Eric Hanna, but trying to give them a good idea of life in a rural setting this early in their studies is not something that's been done in the past. Spending a week in a rural or smaller community is a component of the curriculum for the first-year students. "This year we engaged the physician recruitment committee," said Hanna. "The thinking behind this was that we can show these folks how attractive life in a smaller community can be." Among those who helped show the students around were McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell and Mark Nibourg of the Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce. Shannon Meilleur, of Oakville originally, enjoyed her experience. "I really loved it," said Meilleur. "It's been a very nice, friendly atmosphere. Everyone's been very hospi- table. She enjoyed her experience shadowing Dr. Christine Schriver. From working in the clinic with nurse practitioners and other medical personnel to spending time in the emergency room, Meilleur said the experience was fascinating. Kalila Steen of Pennsylvania got a bird's eye view of Dr. Mark Robson's life. She appreciated the wide variety of procedures and staff to which she was privy. The physician shortage in rural areas means family doctors must have a wide variety of skills. From kayaking on the Madawaska River to a trip to the Waba Cottage Museum in White Lake, the experience for the students was a positive one. Medical students from Queen's University, Shannon Meilleur, left, and Kalila Steen, recently completed one-week placements at Arnprior District Memorial Hospital to experience health care and life in a rural area.

The new Arnprior Regional Health builds upon Ontario's health plan and addresses the need for more collaborative, system-focused care delivery. We're on the right track. Arnprior Regional Health is helping to drive transformation in rural health care and serves as a model for integration in the system. This name change is representative of a shift from provider-focused to patientfocused care as part of our Action Plan for Health Care. Congratulations to everyone who is making this change happen and delivering high quality care to the people in this community. The Honourable Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care The launch of Arnprior Regional Health is a visionary example of how health services are adapting to changing needs. By fostering clinical innovation and developing new partnerships, Arnprior Regional Health is positioning itself to be a true model for change in our region. The Champlain LHIN fully supports this transformative plan, and congratulates all those involved for developing such forwardlooking local strategies. Chantale LeClerc, CEO of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) The new Arnprior Regional Health accurately identifies the array of health care services now being provided for our local communities. As the mandate of your organization has changed over the years, it is only fitting that your name should be reflective of those changes. Arnprior Regional Health does exactly that. John Yakabuski, MPP for Renfrew-Nippising-Pembroke For more information about ARH 0628.R0011478482 Focusing on our patients and residents A rnprior Regional Health is committed to providing a broad scope of services to ensure high quality, appropriate care close to home. Here are just a few highlights from the past year: We are working closely with our community partners to bring more services to Arnprior. Assisted Living is an excellent example. It matches the needs of seniors and their caregivers with the appropriate local support services to help seniors stay in their own homes and avoid premature admission to the hospital or long-term care homes. Residents, families, staff, and community members have all been involved in the planning for the redevelopment of The Grove Nursing Home. The sense of pride and ownership is clearly evident. New technology called e-MAR keeps track of each resident's medication, including exactly when it is given. Doctors and nurses can track the information, reducing the possibility of a medication administration error. And the Adult Day Program continues to provide respite for local residents � thanks to our partners the United Way and Carefor. Recently, we welcomed Dr. Chris Brown, our third Orthopedic surgeon, focusing on knee scopes, basic fractures and bunions. Dr. Brown first came to ADMH during his residency and says he knew he would come back because he loves the small hospital environment. This year, the Arnprior & District Memorial Hospital introduced a new Medical Day Program. It offers a variety of services, including blood transfusions, provided in a dedicated clinical setting for enhanced privacy and patient comfort. We continue to collaborate with health and community partners. The Arnprior and District Family Health Team (FHT) is settling in well and providing comprehensive care in the Primary Health Care Centre and Pakenham. In fact, the team has been able to enrol 2000 new patients in the past six months alone. And a partnership with The Grove and Arnprior District High School provides intergenerational connections between the residents and the students. You can't miss them � our wonderful volunteers in their new blue smocks! For 50 years, they have provided service with a smile at the hospital and The Grove. Last year, 213 dedicated women, men and students provided 19,754.3 hours of volunteer service. Thank you!

Together, we continue to support both the Arnprior & District Memorial Hospital and The Grove Nursing Home by raising funds for much needed medical equipment. The PIC Board of Directors was pleased to officially finalize the ER Campaign with the arrival of a beautiful new donor wall, designed by local artist Stephen Braithwaite. The wall is located in the ER waiting room. This past year, PIC announced an ambitious fundraising campaign for the Digital Mammography Unit � one of the best tools for the detection of breast cancer. Led by Campaign Chair Kimberley O'Shaughnessy, the campaign to raise $400,000 was launched on Valentine's Day and we've been overwhelmed by the generosity of our local communities. Signature events have included the Breast Ball golf tournament, dancing the night away at Mardi Bras, and the 12th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting. PIC also benefited from many third party events too numerous to list. The new Legacy Giving Program provides donors with another option when planning their estates. This year, more than $300,000 has been received. visit www.ArnpriorRegionalHealth.ca 0628.R0011478587 Thank you to our generous communities for your ongoing support! Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, June 28, 2012 29 POLICING Your Community Newspaper Two area drivers killed in early summer crashes EMC news � The early days of summer tend to be deadly on area roads and this year is proving no exception. Two drivers were killed in two separate collisions up the Valley from Arnprior this week. At press deadline, Renfrew OPP were investigating a three-vehicle collision on Highway 17 at Haley Station Wednesday morning that claimed the life of a woman driving one of the vehicles involved. Preliminary investigation revealed that a car travelling eastbound was struck in the eastbound lane by a dump truck travelling westbound, report police. The westbound dump truck attempted to stop for traffic waiting to turn off of the highway but struck the back of a transport and veered into the eastbound lane striking the car. The female driver of the car died at the scene. The male driver of the dump truck was taken to the Renfrew Victoria Hospital to be treated for minor injuries. The driver of the transport truck was not injured. Highway 17 was closed around 8 a.m. between Haley Station and Cobden. OPP Constable David Ladd is investigating the fatal with assistance from technical traffic collision investigators. Meanwhile, speed and alcohol are believed to be contributing factors in a single-vehicle collision that killed a Whitewater Region man on the morning of Sunday, June 24, say Renfrew OPP. Police responded to the crash on Grants Settlement Road near McCoy Road at about 9:25 a.m. A 2001 Pontiac Grand Am was travelling westbound when it left the roadway and struck a hydro pole. The hydro pole broke and fell onto the car. The driver, who was found dead at the scene, has as been identified at Kirby Costello, 31. Photo by Peter Clark One person is confirmed dead following an collision involving a dump truck, car and tractor trailer at the dangerous intersection of Highway 17 and Haley Road Wednesday morning. The OPP closed the highway to traffic most of the while they conduct their investigation. The corner has been the site of several crashes in recent years. St. Peter Celestine Roman Catholic Church Annual Woman accosted downtown, not park EMC news � Arnprior OPP are looking for the driver of a what was likely a small red Ford pick-up truck after what appears to be an attempted abduction of a woman June 9 on Daniel Street near the downtown area (not close to Robert Simpson Park as mistakenly indicated a story in the June 14 Chronicle Guide EMC). Arnprior OPP officers responded to a complaint regarding a suspicious vehicle on Daniel Street North and Rock Lane close to the bridge about 11:35 p.m. Officers were told that at about 11 p.m. a woman was walking alone northbound on Daniel Street North when a small red Ford pickup pulled up to the sidewalk. After a verbal exchange through the passenger window, the male driver lunged across the seat and grabbed onto the victim. When the victim broke free and ran away, the man fled the area. The suspect is described as probably a white male, 45-50 years old, having a moustache and grey hair. He is described as wearing a blue/white hat and red plaid lumberjack style shirt. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Arnprior OPP at 613-6233131 or 1-888-310-1122.

Kelly Clark travelled to Arnprior June 18 from Toronto to receive a Paul Harris award at St. Joseph's Catholic School. She is founder and creator of a "phenomenal learning, mentoring and character building program," said Arnprior Rotary past president Dave Palmer in introducing her to both St. Joe's and Walter Zadow students, graduates for the `Nobody' program, who attended the ceremony. The two schools are two of at least six in the area that have embraced the program (A.J. Charbonneau and McNab also have been involved). Clark said she created the program after being frustrated by seeing so many of her students engaging in superficial and sometimes cruel acts as they tried to fit in with the perceived `with it' groups. "I wanted a program that had students looking inside themselves and others and at the tangible things in the world ... rather than bullying someone in the hope that someone else might like them," she added. Her program also promotes interpersonal relationships, rather than artificial communication on the Internet. Clark said the `Who is Nobody' program, which turns a Nobody into a Somebody with acts of kindness and generosity, sprung out of those concerns. The program teaches kindness is "earned and lasting and you can build on it," she explained. "It's always better to build someone up than tear someone down." She said students across the province and much further have taken to the program and now she helps administer it full-time. Palmer said he heard about the program from a sister teaching in 0628.R0011485086 R0011479332a Where Chocolate Meets Fashion ARNPRIOR SECOND SECTION North Gower. With his urging, the Rotary Club helped introduce it in the Arnprior schools. It is growing rapidly, he said, noting it is now in 60 Ottawa area schools. Palmer said it fits in well with Rotary's mission of service and promotion of literacy. "We're proud of our role in bringing this to the fore," he told the students. In accepting the award, Clark thanked the Rotary Club and local teachers for believing in the program. But it is you students who have "made it come alive," she told them. ACTS OF KINDNESS She urged the students to continue with their acts of kindness this summer when they are on holiday or at camp. "Make a conscious decision to focus on the positive in everyone you meet," she added. "It will open many doors for you," Clark said. "Always remember it's what's inside that makes you a somebody." Arnprior Rotarians Joyce Dawson and Leo Hughes also attended the ceremony, which saw Clark presented with flowers and a gift, a Arnprior-opoly game as a keepsake to remind her of the town where her program is so popular. Clark said she was honoured with the award, as both her father and grandfather were long-time Rotarians. In his nomination of Clark for the Paul Harris Award, Palmer said she exemplifies "service above self." "Through the creativity of Who is Nobody, this has been accomplished at astounding levels and grows each year. One only has to see the sincerity and dedicated concern Kelly has demonstrated in the creation of her not-for-profit organization," he said.

"Our Dare to Care Telethon was created and over the years has successfully raised the needed dollars to maintain the Care Coach. "Due to declining revenue being realized through our last two telethons, it was evident the dollars spent to produce the telethon was concerning and another method of garnering the public's financial support was needed," said Dennis Harrington, executive director of the Arnprior-BraesideMcNab Seniors At Home Program. Instead, the organization is reaching out to supporters in a mail-out campaign officials hope will keep costs down but maintain the flow of generous donations coming in. "Our Care Coach paratransit service depends on each one of us," said Harrington. "From the staff of our agency who oversee the day to day operations to our volunteer receptionist who dispatch close to 300 calls per month for this vital service, to our drivers, Colin Borshevsky and Dean Whittington, and to you, the donor, without your financial assistance the Care Coach would not be in Arnprior and area providing the much needed specialized transit for our citizen,." Whether it is Dolores Parsons, whose late husband used the service twice a week to attend the Grove day program and for trips in his last days as a resident at the Bonnechere Manor to Autumn Leaves Lodge resident Shirley Fray who gets to and from her art classes in Arnprior from the Braeside home, the service has provided vital connections Photo by Sherry Haaima Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home, the Arnprior and District Food Bank and the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital were recipients of proceeds from the Knights-Legion Euchre Challenge. Each organization received $400. From left are Dave Fridgen (food bank), Bob Adkins (Legion), Ron Grenier (Knights), Dennis Harrington (Seniors at Home), Dan Lynch (Legion) and Judy Gibbons (ADMH). for many locals. Officials are hoping the public comes through with the same generous support it has always provided, via the telethon the last five. Letters will be going to every household within the Town of Arnprior, Township of McNab-Braeside and surrounding areas. "Please look for your yellow envelope containing our financial request to you," said Harrington. Donations can be mailed or dropped off to in the pre-addressed yellow envelope to 106 McGonigal St.West, (Towne Centre). To donate via VISA or Master Card call Monday to Friday to the special Dare to Care line at 613-622-CARE (2273). Cheques can be made payable to the Seniors At Home Program and tax receipts will be mailed. "Hundreds of your fellow community members rely on this service on a daily basis, whether it is to a medical appointment in-town, out-of-town, shopping or social activities," said Harrington. "Approximately 300 trips per month are made both local and out-of-town, the Care Coach has proven its worth within our community. "As our agency receives no funding from either municipal, provincial or federal governments for the Care Coach, it falls on you and I to support this fundamental service. "You and I take it for granted when we walk out of our home and jump into our vehicle. "The clients we serve with the Care Coach do not have that luxury, they are dependent on this service." CARE COACH HISTORY We Know What Works A number of years ago, community interest was sought to see if a need was within the community for specialized transit. A committee was formed, headed by Linda Jamieson of the Champlain Community Care Access Centre and various community-minded individuals along with Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors At Home Program. It was concluded a specialized transit service is definitely needed with many individuals being recognized as requiring the service. "It was then that the seed for a specialized transportation service within our community started to grow only with your financial contributions," said Harrington. Nepean Hearing Let Richard Kent MSc.

The recipe came from a very good friend whose name is also Pat, and it's always on the menu on Canada Day. This is one of the best cakes I've ever tasted. The ingredients are readily available - frozen strawberries, a white cake mix, strawberry Jello powder, eggs and oil. Topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries, Food `n Stuff PAT TREW it's the perfect red and white dessert for Canada Day. Keep the ingredients on hand though, because it's so easy and so good you'll want to make it for other occasions too. STRAWBERRY CANADA DAY CAKE 1 super-moist white cake mix (enough for 2 layers) 1 package of frozen strawberries (or 2 cups of frozen berries) 85 gm package strawberry Jello, or other jelly powder 1/3 cup vegetable oil 4 eggs 250 mL whipping cream about 12 fresh whole strawberries, hulled and washed Partially thaw the strawberries before you start everything else. Grease and lightly flour a 13"x 8" cake pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, Jello powder, oil and eggs. Pour off any juice from the berries and add this to the bowl. With an electric mixer, mix the cake batter for 2 minutes. Turn the bowl occasionally to ensure that the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Fold the partially-thawed berries into the cake batter, then spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake at 325F for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Since it's easiest to serve this cake right from the pan, cool it completely in the pan. The cake can be baked a day ahead. If you make it in advance, wait until an hour or so before serving to finish it off. To finish the cake, in a small bowl, beat the whipping cream until it holds its shape. Spread this over the top of the cake. Arrange the strawberries on top of the whipped cream with the tips pointing up. The berries can also be sliced and arranged so that every slice of cake will have berries on it. Keep chilled until serving time. Serves 12-14. Calabogie Blues and Ribfest attracts top acts with Ontario grant Some of the finest blues music in North America comes to Calabogie Peaks Resort Aug. 17 to 19 for the second annual Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Blues & Ribfest. More than 10,000 people are expected to attend the event, which will feature such renowned blues acts at the Downchild Blues Band, David Rotundo and the Powder Blues Band. As well, five of the top rib barbecuers in the country will vie for the ribfest crown. "The Township of Greater Madawaska received a grant from the Ministry of Tourism's Celebrate Ontario Program, and these funds will help not only to secure some of the top blues performers, but also help attract a greater audience to the township," says a news release from organizers. "Celebrate Ontario Grants help new and existing Ontario festivals and events enhance their programs, activities and services. This support helps grow tourism in the province by making it easier for event organizers to offer new and improved experiences that will attract more tourists and increase visitor spending." Greater Madawaska Township Mayor Peter Emon acknowledged the support of the business community within the township. "Our township has partnered with Calabogie Peaks Resort and many other local businesses to help deliver one of the biggest festivals in Eastern Ontario," he said. "The Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Blues & Ribfest is a great way for tourists to discover the many opportunities available in our region and acres of pristine nature. Very few festivals offer this unique combination of Blues music, resort amenities and recreation experiences," said Murphy. Ed Torres, CEO of Torres Media and 101.9 DAWG FM in Ottawa, was excited about returning to Calabogie with this growing blues festival. "We are very excited to have the support of Celebrate Ontario. This allows us to bring the best Canadian blues artists to Calabogie, which in turn will help drive attendance to our festival and tourism to Greater Madawaska and Renfrew County," Torres said. In 2011, more than 8,300 people attended the inaugural festival. Advance tickets to the festival are available online at www.calabogieblues.com. it allows our business community to benefit from the many economic development spinoffs from this event." Paul Murphy, president of Calabogie Peaks Resort, says he looks forward to welcoming returning and new visitors to the area.

Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, June 28, 2012 35 COMMUNITY Your Community Newspaper Father continues back-breaking work to get family through EMC Lifestyle - Early in the morning, this time of year, I could hear Father stirring downstairs. He would try to be quiet so as not to rouse the rest of the house, but as soon as he lit the cook stove, scraping the lids to put in the kindling, I would waken. And then I would hear Mother in the kitchen getting breakfast ready. The sun would be just rising when Father would head to the barns for the chores, returning to the house to down his breakfast and head out again for the long day ahead in the fields. Likely the binder or the hay mower would already be in a far-off part of the farm, left there from the day before. Our fields were long and narrow in the Northcote area, and it seemed to me, when I was so young, that when Father went beyond the West Hill, he was in another part of the country. He loved his land. Just like he loved every animal in the barns and fields. Grampa, when he came to visit from Ottawa, would say, "Albert is a true farmer." On week days, Mother would pack a lunch for him to take to the back fields. But on Saturdays, I would be allowed to take the 11-quart basket, packed with sandwiches, a honey pail of tea with shards of ice in it, slab cake, and a peeled cucumber and a tomato. It was quite a feast, I thought back then. Father and I would share the lunch together. But during the days when we were at school, I knew without Mother telling me, that Father would be gone for most of the day with the binder, far back into the fields in the farthest reaches of our farm. My three brothers would be expected to hurry home from school this time of year, because they would be responsible for the evening chores. There was milking to be done, the barns to be cleaned out and made ready for the night, the calves and pigs to be fed, and fresh straw put in the stalls. My sister Audrey and I were expected to wash out the milk pails and the cream sep- Mary Cook's Memories BY MARY COOK arator, put fresh cheese cloth under the lids of the milk cans, making sure everything was secure. Mother lived in constant dread that somehow a mouse would get into the milk can during the night, which Father said was an impossibility since the lids fit so tightly. But she wasn't taking any chances, thus the cheesecloth was extra protection. We would have our supper without Father these nights. He would still be working in the fields. It didn't seem right somehow, that he wasn't sitting at the head of the table. But his plate would be there, just as if he could be expected any minute to come in the back door. My sister Audrey would have to say Grace, which was a much shorter version than that given by Father. Although he wasn't one to engage in idle chatter at meal time, nonetheless it seemed strange that he wasn't part of our supper meal. Long after we had eaten, and redded up the kitchen, and the light of the day would have started to fade, I would go to the window and watch for Father. I would first see just a speck, and then I would see him coming over the West hill, walking behind the team, with the whippletree dragging behind them. I would watch his figure grow larger and I would feel the utmost relief. "He's home," I would yell. Everett would get up and go out to the barn yard and take the team from Father, feed them oats, and let them drink from the watering trough and then take them into the barn for the night. Father would come into the kitchen, covered with dirt and chaff, looking like he had rolled in a dust bin. He would go to the bench at the back door where Mother would have put out a fresh basin of warm water. I would watch him splash the water over his face and rub it up his arms, and see the water turn black. He would reach up to the huck towel and dry himself off, and it would look like he didn't have another ounce of strength in his body. Mother would put a steaming supper before him, and I never knew whether I should sit at the table with him so that he wouldn't be eating alone, or to leave him in peace. It never mattered how ample was the meal, it couldn't erase the bone-tiredness from Father's body. I used to think a long day in the fields made him look much older than he really was. At any other time of the year, Father would spend some time after supper reading the paper, with his feet resting on the oven door. But when he had been in back fields from daylight to dusk, it was all he could do to muster enough strength to plod to the bedroom, undress and fall into bed. I knew without fail, the next morning there would be a repeat of what had happened the day before, and would happen many days hence. Although I didn't understand completely what the Depression really meant, I knew for us to survive it, Father would have to continue the back-breaking work of tilling the land, and harvesting the crops, with machinery that had seen better days. And in my prayers at night, I would offer up a prayer for Father, that he would have the strength to do what had to be done to keep the farm going, and to keep the Depression from closing in around us. New festival to offer art, food, music and children's activities A new festival in Renfrew will bring together over 30 local artists to Haramis Park on Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Art in the Park is sponsored by the Renfrew Art Guild and other community partners. There is no admission fee to this family event that will showcase watercolours, oil paintings, jewelry, pottery, textiles, wood carvings and much more. Another feature of Art in the Park will be the food available from local food vendors. Beavertails, Spanky's Spuds, and The Renfrew Tea Room will be on site serving up local favourites. The food vendors will be located right beside the Tourist Booth at Haramis Park on O'Brien Road. There will be a special painting exhibit where local children are invited to try their hand at producing artwork. There will also be musicians performing near the historic locomotive train at the Park. Some of the performers are Limited Edition and Simon Clarke, formerly of '60s British pop band Freddie and The Dreamers, as well as others.

A total of 38 teams gathered at the Madawaska Golf Course to enjoy an afternoon of golf and support a worthy cause. Even the threat of stormy weather did not deter the avid golfers taking part. Among the golfers were a strong contingent from the Sullivan family and the M. Sullivan and Son company. Seen with Community Living manager Tina MacLaren, left, are, from left, Morris Sullivan, Jonathon Sullivan, Lori Van Wyk and the company's chairman of the board Bill Holmes, ready to head out and conquer the course. MacLaren said Community Living appreciates the support that allows many children with special needs to go to summer camp. It was with mixed feelings the golfers took to the course this year, as it was the first tournament since Tommy Sullivan's death last winter. "Tommy was a huge supporter (of Community Living and the tournament)," said MacLaren. "His presence will be missed." But not forgotten. The Thomas E. Sullivan Trophy has been provided for the tournament to keep his memory alive. EMC sports � The Arnprior Packers Junior B club has a new owner: Marco Scapillati. is president of M. Scapillati Flooring in Manotick, and has coached minor hockey in the past. The team's new general manager, Shawn Patrick, made the announcement in late May. Patrick is a former coach of the Packers. "He's pretty gung-ho," Patrick said, who noted the team is still basking in last season's first Eastern Ontario Junior B Hockey League Valley Division title in 14 years. "We hope to repeat. I think we'll be fairly competitive." The coaching staff won't change. Bill Griese and his staff are expected to build on the success once a number one goalie is secured. "I think we should be right in the mix of things," said Patrick, who added he was lured back to the club � he served as coach four years ago - because he loves hockey. He can even see the rink from his house. The last owner, Enzo Mastromattei, owner of Rockin' Johnny's in Kanata and Unique Import Auto in Carleton Place, found he couldn't commit the time needed to play a proper role in the team. He bought the Packers in 2010. WOLVES CHANGE COACHES The Renfrew Timberwolves will enter the 2012-13 Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League season with a familiar face behind the bench. General manager Brent Sylvester will take over the coaching reins from Tony Iob effective immediately. "Tony's contract was not renewed," Wolves president Doug Miller said. With his hockey experience overseas, Miller said Iob was actually overqualified for the amount the Wolves could afford to pay him. "Tony isn't going to coach for nothing," Miller noted. A former Wolves defenceman, Sylvester is looking forward to the challenge of stepping in behind the bench, where he has been before. "I'm excited. I'm looking forward to the challenge," he said. "I have a lot of work to do." Sylvester has assistant coaches in place. Ex-Timberwolf and Pontiac Junior blueliner Jason Gould; Lorenzo Comparelli, who has about 20 years Triple A coaching experience in Toronto; and Gould's brother Brent, a goaltender who also played in the junior B loop, will join Sylvester. One player Comparelli coached at the Triple A level was Tie Domi's son, who appears destined to make the National Hockey League. -With files from Peter Clark Correction EMC sports � The winner of the Junior Boys Grades 5-6 race at the annual Optimist Fitzroy over the Carp Cross Country Run May 15 was Matthew Hebert of John XXIII, not Matthew Herbert as indicated in last week's Chronicle Guide EMC.

Key Map: Dated at the Town of Arnprior this 28th day of June, 2012. Jacquie Farrow-Lawrence, Clerk 105 Elgin Street West Arnprior, Ontario K7S 0A8 www.arnprior.ca R0011484404 Palmer pointed out that Who is Nobody (WIN) has been introduced to thousands of children (45,000 at last count), teachers and others with its concept of encouragement, mentoring and helpfulness. WIN promotes teamwork, literacy and sharing through the efforts of groups, especially students and teachers in a classroom setting to work both individually and as a team to take `nobody' and turn them into a somebody, "a truly wonderful concept that brings the spirit of acceptance and understanding to all," he said. "In the world of education, no matter how hard technology has tried over many years, it has never come close to the replacement of a good teacher. Technology while both exciting and supportive cannot do what is needed by devoted and sincere unity and cooperation of people working together to reach goals," he added. Palmer said that Who is Nobody, through its unique attributes, is a highly charged activity of learning, sharing and kindness that when used really imaginatively by both student and teacher alike brings the kind of character building and maturity that reflects the goals and objectives of Rotary, as it lends credence to a supportive, caring, benevolent and charitable society. Who is Nobody uses the individual strengths of each person to build character and com- pleteness, he added. The skills sets of verbal and oral communication are built upon through improving literacy both written and oral skills, understanding each other and the benefits of charity and acts of kindness. Over a relatively short period of time, students apply cohesiveness and team-work skills to create a unique and important `Somebody', Palmer said. "Students together learn to gather and then use their talents, strengths and capabilities to conquer fears, assist each other to overcome problems, do good things in their community and prove there is no limit to the educational value of WIN." He noted that Clark has voluntarily dedicated her life "to see that this incredible, charitable program continues to provide valuable leadership, kindness, peace, goodwill and benevolence towards others. Her love of education and improving the lives of others is amply shown through the WIN program." The program has spread across Canada and into the U.S., England, Australia and Saudi Arabia, he noted. "It has brought better understanding of the values of working together to extol the virtues of sharing and caring and for these many reasons all which exemplify the four-way-test many times over, it makes Kelly an outstanding example of what it means to commit to `Service above Self'."

Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, June 28, 2012 43 EDUCATION Your Community Newspaper Catholic board uses reserves to pass no-cuts budget Declining enrolment leads to renewed talk of school board amalgamations, trustees note EMC news � The Renfrew County Catholic District School Board (RCCDSB) will invest $58.97 million in its faith-based education system in 2012�2013, according to the budget passed unanimously by Board trustees June 25. The new budget will use about $300,000 in reserves to allow the district to maintain all of its existing programs in the coming school year. "In keeping with our commitment to provide the highest quality of education in our faith-based schools, we plan no program cuts in our 2012�2013 budget," said board chair Bob Schreader. "This will allow our schools to meet the needs and expectations of our students and their parents, and support the Ministry of Education's goals for individual student achievement." He said a revenue shortfall of $305,742 will be covered by board reserves. Schreader praised fellow trustees for their commitment to the board priorities. "Your prudent decision-making and effective use of our board's resources have helped to expand our achievements as a faith-based education system and support student success in our community of schools," he said. The new budget includes several provincewide initiatives that focus on increasing student success and responding to individual needs of students, Schreader pointed out. "This Board strives to provide an inclusive school environment for each and every one of our students to achieve their personal best. To that end, we will maintain our focus on special education," Schreader said. The $8.4-million program, which is the board's largest single initiative, will be supported by $7 million in funding resulting in a special education deficit of $1.4 million. Other key initiatives for 2012�2013 include: � Full-day, every-day Early Learning Kindergarten Program (ELKP) at two new sites - Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School in Pembroke and St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School in Renfrew. � The addition of an Early Education teacher to the Aboriginal Success program in order to help close the gap in student achievement. � The expansion of the summer school program for Grade 4 students. In addition to the Crusaders Camp in Pembroke's Bishop Smith Catholic High School, another camp, called Jaguar, will be offered at St. Joseph's Catholic High School in Renfrew. The program allows students to explore and experience all that Catholic high schools have to offer. � Support for French as a Second Language (FSL) programs with an extended pilot program continuing at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School in Petawawa and a new pilot program at St. Joseph's Catholic School in Arnprior this fall. � A total of $125,000 in Ministry of Education funding to support the Student Work Study Teachers initiative. This project involves a collaborative study of student learning needs, plus assessment and instructional strategies to close learning gaps and improve achievement. � A continuing focus on improving student achievement across the board. In the recent Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test results, RCCDSB's secondary students exceeded board expectations, with an 86 per cent average. The provincial average was 82 per cent. � Maintaining a partnership with the Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) to improve parent involvement in their children's education. PIC recently offered some recommendations that included pooling resources by bringing parent school councils together; increasing communication to inform parents about Ministry and Board initiatives; as well as sharing tips with parents on how to help their children succeed. � Investing $25,000 from the Ontario Leadership Strategy for professional training to help aspiring leaders in the board. The funds will be used to enhance the knowledge of the board's leadership team. � Building a more robust chaplaincy program as part of the board's religious education goals. Other activities include an annual religious retreat for trustees and formal meetings with religious leaders in the community. School principals also work with pastors throughout the year on religious activities within local communities. � Introducing a Hockey Canada Skills Academy at St. Joseph's Catholic High School in Renfrew this fall. This innovative program will allow Grade 9 and 10 students to earn high school credits from hockey instruction. � In an effort to expand the board's music program, staffing will be enhanced. � Continuing to expand the technology infrastructure program as well as enhancing wireless capabilities across the school system. Projects include upgrading hardware in schools and classroom laptops for students. A blended learning approach, combining traditional teacher-led classes with digital resources, continues to move forward. � New high-tech projects include iPad pilot projects at Holy Name Catholic School in Pembroke and Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School in Renfrew. At Our Lady of Fatima, for instance, two high-tech projects are supported by the provincial Teachers Leadership and Learning Program. The projects involve using iPads, iPod Touches and Smart Boards to target at-risk readers and improve reading levels as well as improve oral language levels. Other project funding includes: � A total of $23,000 for the Early Primary Collaborative Inquiry (EPCI), which focuses on teaching Kindergarten to Grade 2 children to develop deep-thinking skills through literacy. � The Collaborative Inquiry for Learning in Math program, with a budget of $45,000, continues to improve instruction and student learning through problem-solving in mathematics. � An allotment of $91,400 for strategically focused initiatives to assist specific schools with student achievement.

The Board will also be holding discussions with all employee groups whose agreements expire on Aug. 31. The board stresses it is committed to working both positively and collaboratively toward new agreements, while ensuring the best interests of students are met. Declining enrolment continues to be an issue for the board, as it is throughout the province. Funding for student bus transportation has been adjusted in response to the decline in enrolment, with an additional one per cent reduction due to a routing efficiencies rating. The Board will also be involved in consultations with the Ministry of Education about the possibility for amalgamation by September 2013. The board will learn more about potential implications for local communities in the upcoming months.

While the City of Ottawa has already announced the Waste Management Concerts in the Park will return to the provincial park Thursday evenings in July, Movie Nights in the Park are also being added to the summer calendar. And even thought the movies are a first for West Carleton, the event is modeled after one that has been held in Stittsville Village Square before. According to Adam O'Rourke, program coordinator for West Carleton, the stage backdrop for the Concerts in the Park will serve as the screen for the movies. "We'll do the concerts on Thursdays and the movies on Wednesdays" he explained. "The moves are free of charge but donations to CHEO will be accepted." O'Rourke said the movies have been well received in Stittsville, drawing between 70-100 people and he hopes for the same response locally. "It's a new event this year and we are really hoping it does well," O'Rouke noted. "We will have a popcorn maker. It will have an old movie-style feel. Canteen revenues raised during the movie nights will go towards Youth Connexion. Movies will start at dusk and attendees can bring a lawn chair or a blanket to watch the flicks under the stars.

Yakabuski was unapposed for the nomination at a party meeting Saturday morning. After being nominated, the MPP mingled with constituents at McNab Days festivities at Red Pine Bay. The provincial Liberals are in a minority government position, so an election could be triggered quickly. While there was some talk of a summer election a couple of weeks ago, that dissipated when the provincial budget was passed last week. In a news release, Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak congratulated Yakabuski on his nomination and thanked him for his "unwavering focus" on reducing the size and cost of government and kickstarting the economy to create private-sector jobs. "John has earned the confidence of his community over and over again because they know they can count on him to represent their priorities," said Hudak. "While the McGuinty Liberals continue to deepen Ontario's economic crisis, the Ontario PC Party is promoting solutions to create new jobs and rein in government spending." Hudak had similar words of praise for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier, the party's Labour Critic, when he was nominated in late May. In accepting the nomination, Yakabuski said he is "honoured to continue representing RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke by working hard to promote positive ideas to tackle Ontario's spending and jobs crisis." He maintained that the PCs are "the only one talking seriously about how we get private sector job growth back on track. This Liberal-NDP budget that puts our province on the road to a $30-billion deficit is the wrong path for Ontario's future prosperity." Yakabuski said "urgent action is needed," citing several specific Ontario PC plans for private sector job growth that include: � balancing the budget to encourage businesses to expand and hire; � lowering taxes for job-creating businesses; � eliminating costly and failed wind and solar subsidies for more affordable energy; � a more flexible and responsive approach to regulation; � more skilled trades jobs by modernizing the apprenticeship system. Yakabuski, first elected in 2003, was re-elected MPP for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke for his third term on Oct. 6, 2011 by a large margin. He currently serves as the Chief Whip for the Official Opposition and as the Community Safety Critic in the PC's shadow cabinet. His father, Paul Yakabuski, served as the MPP for the riding of Renfrew South for 24 years.

Stalker after the McNab Days Riverdrive came ashore at Red Pine Bay Saturday. Earlier in the day, Yakabuski was nominated again as PC candidate in the riding. Orange Crush could come to Renfrew County: NDP MP EMC news - New Democrat Treasury Board Critic and Pontiac MP Mathieu Ravignat spoke to RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke New Democrats Saturday about what got him elected as part of the `Orange Crush' of NDPers who got elected federally in 2011. Local party activists, finding themselves in the unprecedented position of having an elected New Democrat in an adjacent federal riding, invited Ravignat, a 40-year old researcher and trade union activist before being elected, to join them for a meet-andgreet in Cobden. Although political dynamics are different in Ontario from Quebec, what riding New Democrats have in common with Pontiac NDPers is that they are facing incumbent Conservatives. In 2011, Ravignat defeated former high-profile Conservative Cabinet minister Lawrence Cannon. Some of the same factors will be at play in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, he said. "The Conservative base in the riding is slowly getting older and older," this riding, we are the solution." Ravignat spoke with pride of his party's work in opposition to the Conservatives' omnibus budget bill C-38. "It was a typical omnibus strategy pulled from the Mike Harris days, and we have the same enemies as back then, people like Tony Clement, Jim Flaherty and John Baird," he said. "They're reproducing a lot of the harm the did in Ontario federally." C-38, he said, was used to introduce changes to legislation "that had nothing to do with the budget ... (but instead) deregulation of environment policies including fish habitat protection, raising the age of eligibility for OAS, changes to EI." The changes to Employment Insurance, he said, will "basically empty my riding of seasonal workers. They will be forced to move or work that's not in their field for much lower wages." The budget was a hard issue to explain to people, he said, "But when you explain it, no citizen in this country likes their democracy abused." Photo courtesy Chris Tanner Pontiac MP Mathieu Ravignat, centre, with some of the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke NDPers who attended a party meeting in Cobden Saturday. Included are the party's riding president Brian Dougherty of Arnprior and former candidate Sue McSheffrey. Ravignat said about his constituency, with the same that could be said for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke. More importantly, he said, today's Harper Conservatives turn off many old Progressive Conservatives. "I spent a lot of my campaign explaining to that base that the Conservatives of the day are not the Conservatives of yesterday. There are ways to convince Conservatives to vote NDP. There are questions of fairness that concern old-style PCs. "They, like any good Canadian, do not like unfair government, untransparent government, or the tactics that have been used since the election by this government." Ravignat said many older Conservatives have approached him since the election and "said, in a whisper, `I didn't vote for you but next time I will'. I ask why and they tell me, `Those guys aren't good people'." Due to the Orange Wave and the early success of new NDP leader Thomas Mulcair, the NDP has become electable in every riding in Canada, Ravignat maintained. "We are now the strategic vote. It's as true here as it's true in Quebec as it's true in Saskatchewan.

S, ARNPRIOR NEWS Your Community Newspaper Faces of Diversity ADHS students hear of intolerance at its worst Leading up to the Ottawa Valley's first Diversity Festival July 7 in Renfrew, organizers invite you to meet some of the many diverse individuals who make up our unique and wonderful community. "Let me give you an idea of what hell is all about." David Shentow, one of Ottawa's most well-known Holocaust survivors, knows exactly where intolerance can lead. He has walked the path and lived to tell the story. He told his powerful, horrific story to a large group of Arnprior District High School students June 6. It is a story none of them will soon forget. Shentow was held in concentration camps from 1942 to 1945, spending ages 17 to 20 in captivity. Born in Warsaw, Poland in 1925, his family moved to Antwerp, Belgium when he was an infant in an attempt to escape anti-Semitism. In August of 1942, Shentow and his father were ordered to report to the Antwerp railway station � it was the last time he would see his mother and two sisters. He was deported to a work camp in France and was later put on a train and sent to Auschwitz. After four days aboard the train, Shentow arrived at Auschwitz along with 3,000 others to find people in striped pajamas, caps and wooden clogs. Women, children, disabled and the elderly were told to move to the left. Shentow was sent to the right, along with other able-bodied men. The men were instructed to undress, take a cold shower, and run naked to the other end of what he had determined to Holocaust survivor David Shentow shows the tattoo he received as a concentration camp prisoner to an Arnprior District High School student. Shentow is one of Ottawa's most well-known Holocaust survivors, speaking to students and groups about the experience regularly. Photos by Sherry Haaima be a concentration camp. It was then he was tattooed with the number 72585, which was how he would be referred to from then on. Shentow told the students he asked the man tattooing him what the significance of his number was. The man replied that Shentow was the 72,585th prisoner in the camp. When he asked how many people were in the camp he was told around 30,000. "Where is everybody else?" asked Shentow. The tattoo artist pointed to the smoke stacks of the crematorium. Before leaving Auschwitz, Shentow learned the heartbreaking news from a neighbour from his hometown that his mother and two sisters had been killed. In 1943, Shentow was transferred from Auschwitz to the remains of the former Warsaw Ghetto, where he joined a group of prisoners in working to level the ruins of buildings. In August 1944, Shentow joined 5,000 Jewish prisoners on a death march to Dachau, walking 50-60 miles each day. Heat and thirst and hunger plagued the prisoners. Then they were put on a cattle train, 120 people per box car, and taken to Dachau. It was one long, hellish year for Shentow at Dachau until liberation on April 29, 1945, his 20th birthday. "It was the day I was born again," he said. As the only surviving member of a family of 17, Shentow considers his survival a miracle. While he said he didn't like rehashing the memories and reliving the pain, he feels an obligation to tell the story, to prevent it from happening again and to counter the views of those who say the Holocaust didn't happen. "If someone says they don't like Jewish people, if someone says they're going to kill Jewish people, listen to them."
