Tara Gesner/Metroland Dressed for the St. Patrick's Parade in Douglas on March 9 are White Lake's Grace MacHardy and Renfrew's Peighton Taylor. The two girls rode on the Dacre and Area Community Association's float. The event kicked off week-long St. Patrick’s celebrations across the Ottawa Valley, including a St. Pat’s breakfast Saturday, March 16 from 7:30 to 11 a.m. at the Christian Education Centre in Arnprior with proceeds going to Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home. In inviting everyone to the breakfast, Arnprior Mayor Walter Stack, who is a guest server on the early shift, said, “good food, good cause.” The same could be said for another St. Patrick’s Day tradition, the Irish stew supper March 17 from 4-6:30 p.m. at Glasgow United Church.

DAMAGING FLOODS POSSIBLE BUT NOT CERTAIN: CEMC JOHN CARTER Be prepared, but don't panic. That's the message from a local community emergency management co-ordinator (CEMC) when it comes to potential spring flooding. The unusually high level of snow this winter has some residents in low-lying areas nervous. It was only two years ago that flooding along the Ottawa River caused a great deal of damage in Horton, McNab/ Braeside and Constance Bay, as well as parts of Ottawa and Gatineau. Area watershed groups are warning about the possibility of above average flooding this spring in tributaries of the Ottawa River not only because of the amount of snow (about 250 centimetres) but because so little of it has melted so far. The Weather Network has also predicted a "heightened threat" for spring flooding, especially across northern Ontario and the Ottawa Valley, where the snow depth is well above normal. However, Horton CEMC Steve Osipenko points out the snow level is only one of the "predictors" of flooding. While the high snow load has some people "hyper sensitive" at this point, "we can't even predict if there will be a flood," he said. Osipenko noted rain and temperature swings are also important factors. The

THE ISSUE: POTENTIAL FLOODING ALONG THE OTTAWA RIVER AND ITS TRIBUTARIES LOCAL IMPACT: EMERGENCY OFFICIALS URGE WATERFRONT RESIDENTS TO BE PREPARED BUT NOT OVERREACT flooding that deluged parts of Horton in 2017 was triggered by rain on uncontrolled streams that added to the melt, he explained. There wasn't the ability to hold back the run-off, he said. "In the Renfrew area the capacity to hold back water is not as great as most people think." Most of the reservoirs on the Ottawa River watershed are up north in Que-

bec, so by the time the river swings east, the flow is harder to control. The Timiskaming is the last significant reservoir on the main stem of the Ottawa River. While there are a number of dams on the river from Timiskaming to Montreal, they have very little storage capacity and generally pass whatever is coming down the river in periods of high water. What can slow the flow is the thermometer dipping to below zero at night even if it is warm during the days, Osipenko said. "Good maple syrup temperatures, that's what we need to prevent flooding." Osipenko, who is also the alternate CEMC for Renfrew County, said preparations have begun to ensure governments and residents are ready in case there is flooding this spring. "We've started the process of prepping for the spring freshette," he said. See EMERGENCY, page 3

FLOOD TIPS JOHN CARTER Given the depth of the snow pack in the Upper Ottawa Valley, area conservation authorities are sharing advice on how residents can prepare for possible flooding. The Rideau Valley Conservation Area, noting the levels are reminiscent of the heavy snowfalls of the 1970s, is urging residents in flood prone or low-lying areas historically susceptible to flooding to take the necessary precautions to protect their property. It suggests: • ensure the sump pump is clear, in good working condition and has a backwater valve; • ensure easy access to a portable back-up generator and pump; • ensure downspouts are clear and the outlet is at least three metres from the dwelling; • secure items that might float away as flows increase; • remove valuable items from basements or lower floors that could be subject to flooding; • keep emergency phone numbers handy; • familiarize yourself with your municipality's emergency preparedness plan.


All the area CEMCs, the County of Renfrew, and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) are involved in the process. The emergency planners are working on information sheets this year focusing on pre-flood preparations, he noted. They are a natural expansion of the information already compiled to assist residents during flooding and afterwards with the clean-up. Noting sandbags are a key item, Osipenko said the CEMCs are "taking stock" of what resources are available to combat flooding. Asked what waterfront residents can do ahead-of-time to protect their homes, Osipenko said sandbags are about the only defence. "That or move your house," he said.

He noted that in the last flood, homes built to specifications above the high water mark were not damaged. The problem lies with older structures on the flood plain or those built on the footprint of former cottages, he said. He reported that most Renfrew County municipalities sent representatives to an emergency management training session at the Horton Community Centre March 4. Of the 57 people there, most were new council members and recently hired municipal employees, but everyone was welcome. The county-hosted workshop explained what duties and resources municipalities provide in emergencies. The emergency planners will start making "freshette calls in the next couple of weeks" to monitor rising waters using MNRF data, Osipenko said. Once the melt begins in earnest, there will be plenty of information made available with flood watches and warnings issued if warranted. Regular updates are available on the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board website at http:// The most recent forecast notes "all major reservoirs in the system continue to be emptied in

Don’t miss out on faster speeds.

Local journalism makes a difference. Support us by registering at preparation for the freshet. Levels and flows on the main stem of the Ottawa River are within their normal range for this time of the year and are expected to be fairly stable over the coming week." When local streams start running fast because of the melt, which could start soon with the temperature for March 15 predicted to hit double digits, the Renfrew County paramedics, of which Osipenko is a member, have a simple message for people: "stay away" Ontario Power Generation has already sounded the alarm, issuing its annual March break appeal for people to stay clear of ice or water near OPG's hydroelectric facilities. Watershed groups warn that ice cover on lakes, ditches, local streams and rivers are already becoming unstable. They advise "extreme caution" near local water-

bodies and urge parents to warn children of the risks and provide appropriate supervision. While the Weather Network predicts early March will feel more like January, a pattern reversal is expected mid-March with an extended period of warmer spring weather, its says. This will be a welcome contrast to last year, which featured one of the coldest Aprils on record. However, Spring will "struggle at times" with "significant shots of colder weather" that will interrupt the mild pattern later in April and into May.

WATCH YOUR ROOF Renfrew County paramedics are also alerting the public to another possible problem due to the thickness and nature of this year's snow cover. It could cause "unusual stresses" on some roof structures, warn the paramedics.


High snow pack has generated fears of flooding this spring. Metroland consulted the experts to gauge the seriousness of the situation.

CAR STARTER MYSTERY EVAPORATES DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@ The car starter mystery has been solved ... sort of. During the deepest depths of this past winter, drivers at the Arnprior

Shopping Centre began to notice their remote control car starters, called key fobs, wouldn't lock doors or turn the vehicle on. This issue seemed to be most common in the Metro parking lot. Several customers asked at the

stores, thinking it might be something to do with operations. Nothing was done differently inside. There was talk of it happening in other parts of town, and in other communities such as Pembroke. A few weeks prior, a media report emerged

over malfunctioning key fobs outside a grocery store in Carstairs, Alta. Could it be the fobs themselves? A defect from the manufacturer? Or maybe a radio tower in the area was causing interference? In Alberta, the grocery

Phone: 613-256-2064 • 1-888-779-8666

store announced on Twitter that the problem was caused by faulty consumer electronic equipment stuck in transmit mode. When Metroland Media contacted Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) spokesperson Hans Parmar, he said the federal government would look into it. The investigation recently concluded, and his emailed response is the

following: "Officers conducted tests at the location where the issues were reported. They found no sources of interference that were likely contributors to the complaints. It is possible that the original reports of interference were a result of a transient interference source that is no longer present. Area residents are encouraged to contact ISED if the problem resurfaces."

CANADA'S 2019 NET ZERO HOME IS IN ARNPRIOR DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@ An Arnprior home won an award at an international event for its energy efficiency. A group from Campanale Homes that included marketing director Christian Campanale recently travelled to New Orleans for a major awards ceremony, the 2019 Cross Border Builder Challenge. One winner from each country was selected from all entries in the Net Zero Home Award. Canada's winner is the Campanale model home in Callahan Estates. "All our staff are really excited and honoured to accept the award," Campanale said. "It's a symbol of what we are trying to accomplish in Arnprior. The homes we are building in Arnprior are at least 10 per cent above the building code. Where the Callahan Estates homes are the ice cream, this model has the toppings. It's a show case of what else you can get." The ice cream and toppings are at the corner of Tom Gavinski Street and Mona McBride Drive; they include: • solar panels across the roof; • a system to filter shower water to toilets; • a thermostat that adjusts to when people are inside and not; • energy efficient windows that reduce heat loss in winter and gains it in summer; • an energy recovery ventilator; • nontoxic and "breathable" exterior boards surrounding the home by Building Products of Canada • an air conditioner that reverses the flow to heat

The third party tester HERS (Home Energy Rating System) gave the home a zero, making it the best Net Zero Home for Canadian

builders at the annual show hosted by RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network). Being an industry leader is important to Campanale, who said saving money for homeowners while doing the right thing for the environment is the future. "I'd say it's a cross border 'challenge' to encourage

other builders to continue to build in the right direction. Hydro prices keep going up. There are environmental realities. This is the wave of the future," Campanale said. "So, if we can get more builders purchasing these products it brings the price down for everyone." The home showcases several companies with strong green credentials, all of whom congratulated the builder on the win. Chris Meechan at Switch Energy said the solar panels are positioned to take advantage of the sun's path and generate electricity for the home. During daylight hours the system will produce more than what the house can consume. The excess electricity is sent to the grid for a credit which is used during non-daylight hours to power the house, he said. "Congratulations to our partners Campanale Homes. This is a tremendous achievement and example of local leadership making a global impact," Meechan said. "For this Arnprior housing development to receive national recognition is a testament to the vision and dedication of the Campanale team to bring energy efficient cost saving solutions for families in the region." The Greyter Water System promises savings on monthly water bills. Ecobee Smart's thermostat could save 23 per cent in energy costs when not in the home.

EV CHARGING STATION AT ARNPRIOR CARPOOL LOT Electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are popping up with more frequency. Petro-Canada recently announced it was installing 50 fast-charging stations across the country. What about the EV chargers in Arnprior? Metroland Media contacted the Ontario Ministry of Transportion to ask a few questions.

JUST THE FACTS: • The ministry installed stations at eight carpool lots along provincial highways, including at the corner of Ottawa Rd. 29 and Keatley Road (near Madawaska Golf Course). The chargers were installed in spring 2018. The ministry owns and operates them. • While the ministry is collecting data about the operating costs and demand for EV charging at these sites, these chargers are currently free for public use. • They are used at least once most weekdays and with a noted increase of use over


Derek Dunn/Metroland time. There is no plans to remove the chargers. • There are also chargers at the Scotiabank on John Street and Tim Hortons on Staye Court as part of a program launched in 2015. They are free for public use, and owned and operated by Koben Systems.

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant is calling on her constituents to speak out on the "scandal" she has labelled 'Lavscam." In her latest news release on the matter, she is urging people to let Prime Minister Justin Trudeau know "it is time for him to go." She issued the release March 5 after hearing Treasury Board president Jane Philpott had resigned from the Liberal cabinet. Gallant said the Liberal who should be resigning is Trudeau, not Philpott. Her latest MP's column on her website is titled "Trudeau must resign." On Feb. 28, after Judy Wilson-Raybould's testimony to the Justice Committee, Gallant issued a release encouraging constituents "concerned over the latest Trudeau scandal" to call the RCMP and request an immediate criminal investigation. She has started an online petition calling on the government to launch a public, judicial inquiry into the actions of the Prime Minister's Office in the SNC-La-

valin affair. "Jane Philpott's resignation from cabinet clearly demonstrates a government in complete chaos, led by a disgraced prime minister," said Gallant in her latest message to constituents. Since news first broke of Trudeau's attempt to "interfere in a criminal case to benefit his friends and help the Liberal party win elections," the prime minister has lost two ministers and a Principal Secretary, noted Gallant. "It's time for every Liberal cabinet minister to ask themselves the same questions Jane Philpott did. Is this what they got into politics for? To prop up a prime minister who will subvert the law to win elections and benefit its corporate friends? "If not, they must stand up and be heard. Like Jane Philpott did today," said Gallant. The Conservative MPP is asking constituents to visit to sign the petition calling for a public inquiry and go to to request the police investigation. She said the Liberals are counting on the media and the public to "get bored" with the story and move on to another issue. "If Trudeau won't call a public inquiry, then Canadians must demand it," she said. "Only overwhelming public pressure will force Trudeau to give in, do the right thing, and call for a full public inquiry."

WHAT IS THE JOB OF A NEWSROOM ETHICS COMMITTEE? Here at Metroland, we value our reputation as being one of Canada's most trusted sources of news. As such, ensuring we are operating in the most ethical fashion possible is something our newsrooms take extremely seriously. In the Ottawa Valley, our Smiths Falls and Renfrew offices have their own ethics committee, which meets bimonthly to discuss any ethics-related matters that have come up over the past couple of months. Many readers may not realize that reporters and editors are frequently called upon to make judgment calls on touchy matters. By working together and talking things through, we strive to always make the best choice possible in these situations. For example, how long do you wait for a response after reaching out to someone for comment on a story? Particularly if said person is portrayed in an unflattering light, reporters should attempt to reach them in more than one way - e.g. by both phone and email. If 24 hours go by and you haven't heard back, should you go ahead and publish, or give them another few hours? Ethics committees can establish general guidelines for these and other matters, and committee members are on hand in the newsroom to talk things through with reporters and assist them in coming up with the best course of action in each situation. Unpublish requests also fall under the umbrella of the ethics committee. For example, what happens if we report on someone being convicted of a crime, then after they've served their time they ask for the old story to be taken off our website, as it continues to pop up whenever someone Googles their name. In the vast majority of cases, the answer will be no, we will not take the story down. The reason is because it's still true that they were arrested and convicted of that crime. It would be irresponsible to simply erase what happened from the record. (This isn't 1984.) However, we will update a story with an editor's note should an individual's charges be dropped or they are found not guilty. It becomes more complicated if a person has been pardoned of a crime. At that point, the committee needs to factor in whether it's ethical to keep the pardoned crime on permanent record if the justice system has absolved the individual. This is a question that will soon be coming up frequently with people being pardoned of possession of marijuana crimes following legalization; most news organizations (including ours) will be establishing an official policy for these cases.

"Ensuring we are operating in the most ethical fashion possible is something our newsrooms take extremely seriously."

My name is Jonathan Mulvihill, Jon for short. I was born and raised in Renfrew. I am currently a second-year journalism student at Algonquin College, and I will be doing a five-week internship at the Renfrew Mercury and Arnprior ChronicleGuide as part of the program. I have always had a passion for writing, which was reignited a few years ago after I discontinued accounting studies at the University of Ottawa. During the year off I came across the journalism program at Algonquin and it immediately caught my eye. I started the program

in 2016 and took a break briefly during my second year due to the college strike. I returned to the program to give it my all, and I will be receiving my diploma this spring. In the journalism program, I acquired many essential skills, such as how to take pleasing photographs, how to promote my brand and, most importantly, how to write news stories for both print and online. I have handson experience with both of Algonquin's publications, the Algonquin Times and Glue Magazine. My interests in the field mainly include photography and writing, but I also have experience in layout, editing and broadcast for both radio and television. When I am not working I like to read, go out for

walks and spend time with family and friends. Some of my favourite things include Tim Hortons, music from the seventies, eighties and nineties, shopping and poutine, especially from Odi's Kingburger in town. I am currently living with my parents, Mary and Stephen Mulvihill. I have two older brothers, Matthew and Kip Mulvihill. Kip and his wife had a baby last month, named Taylor Stephen Mulvihill. I am looking forward to interning at the Mercury for the next few weeks, and I am especially happy to be back in the town in which I grew up. Jonathan Mulvihill, a journalism student from Algonquin College, has joined the Renfrew Mercury/Arnprior ChronicleGuide for a five-week internship. The Renfrew native looks forward to the weeks ahead.

Usually by the beginning of March winter's icy grip has weakened. As snowless shoulders along rural roads grow wide, newly arrived Horned Larks search them for seeds, spiders, and insects. If the warmth of a soon-toarrive spring liberates slow-moving waters from their frozen shackles, male Red-winged Blackbirds soon start flashing their red epaulettes as they noisily announce ownership of newly acquired territories. So far this year, however,

March has brought little more than more frigid temperatures and more snow. In the Ottawa area, January holds the distinction of a record amount of snowfall. February's claim to fame is the coldest average temperature. Together, deep snow and frigid temperatures spell hardship and even death for many animals. Recently I came across two animals that are likely not alive today. One was a white-throated sparrow that was visiting a bird feeder near Carleton University. These northern sparrows are famous for their "Sweet Canada Canada Canada" songs frequently heard on Hinterland Who's Who commercials. Now, it's not rare for one of these bulky sparrows to overwinter this far north but this year the unusual roller-coaster temperatures apparently were more than this fellow could

Its back feathers were flattened and frozen, their essential insulating properties removed. On cold days, birds fluff up their feathers to retain more body heat. This bird had no way of doing so and its matted feath-

ers allowed much of its body heat to escape. The sparrow was weak, barely able to hop across the snow. I threw seeds around it hoping that it might eat and regain enough energy to make it through the day. However, the next day it was nowhere to be seen.

receive this benefit. But even in numbers, deer have difficulty getting around in deep snow, and sometimes that stress is too much. It is impossible not to feel sorry for an animal in distress. But environmental stress is just one way nature keeps her species healthy. When the toughest survive, they pass on their genes to their offspring. Those less well equipped perish, removing their genes from the pool. At times nature may seem cruel and callous but she is neither; this is simply nature's way.

The other animal was a female white-tailed deer. She was lying down in the snow and at first seemed OK except for some ice around her mouth. But when she struggled to her feet her emaciated frame and unsteadiness as she tried to walk through the belly-deep snow told me she was not in good shape. White-tailed deer have very short legs, a mere metre high at the shoulder, and thus have difficulty moving through deep snow. The record amount that fell in Ottawa in January is testing theses animals to their limits. Moose have legs two metres high at their shoulder and, along with an unusual hip movement, have little difficulty getting around in deep snow. Historically, it was in part snow depth that kept deer from ranging much farther north in Ontario. When deer gather in large numbers in winter in their "yards" they maintain trails and walk in single file to reach feeding areas. A lone deer does not

ARNPRIOR MEN FACE DRUG, IMPAIRED CHARGES A tip from the public resulted in an Arnprior man being nabbed for drug possession March 8. The Arnprior OPP report that acting on information a man was in possession of a controlled substance, officers with the local detachment, supported by members of the Community Street Crime Unit, located the vehicle he was travelling in and conducted a traffic stop. As a result of the investigation Timothy Bourque, 35, was charged with possession of a schedule one substance. Schedule one drugs are

defined as those with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. The accused was released on a promise to appear in Renfrew court April 17. A Renfrew man is facing the same charge after also being arrested on March 8. OPP report officers responded to an unwanted person call in Renfrew. As a result of the investigation, David Page, 46, has been charged with possession of a schedule one substance. The accused was issued an appearance notice

for Renfrew court April 3.

IMPAIRED DRIVING CHARGE On March 5, local OPP officers responded to a motor vehicle collision on Highway 417 east of White Lake Road.

Tara Gesner/Metroland The Valley Concert Band, pictured, and the Arnprior Community Choir entertained a crowd at the Nick Smith Centre on March 10 with a spirited performance.

VALLEY CONCERT BAND AND ARNPRIOR COMMUNITY CHOIR PERFORM AT NICK SMITH CENTRE TARA GESNER Music! Music! Music! The Valley Concert Band and Arnprior Community Choir entertained a large crowd at the Nick Smith Centre (arena) in Arnprior on March 10 with a spirited performance. The annual event featured the combined talents of over 100 musicians. As always, admission was a freewill donation.

Under the baton of Keith Estabrooks, the Arnprior-based Valley Concert Band has been performing music in the area for over three decades. Its repertoire has grown to include classical band overtures and suites, marches, show tunes, movie and TV themes, ballads, polkas, waltzes, Dixieland, pop and so much more. On Sunday, the group performed a variety of tunes, including a selection of ABBA songs from the Mamma

Mia soundtrack. The Arnprior Community Choir is celebrating its 28th season in 2019. The size of the group varies between 65 and 85 members, both men and women, with ages ranging from 14 to 83. Members come from 11 different towns and hamlets, including as far away as Ottawa and Eganville. Lisa Webber is the director of the Arnprior Community Choir.


MAR 21 – 24

Travelling to six locations including Renfrew, Arnprior and Eganville, the Pop Up Art gallery will entertain and intrigue Renfrew County residents from May 2 to Sept. 1. The six venues, which include private businesses and public facilities, were selected based on specific criteria that included geographical location, high foot traffic, space allowance and accessibility. Preference was given to locations where people tend to linger or wait and which serve a broad cross-section of the community. Organizers also considered the element of surprise - many locations are not your typical art gallery location. The selected six locations are the Fifth Chute Coffee Café in Eganville, May 2 to 19 (also the official launch event); Dundonald Hall Fitness Sports and Aquatic Centre, CFB, Petawawa, May 23 to June 9; Arnprior Public Library, June 13 to 30; Deep River and District Hospital, July 4 to 21; Madawaska Coffee in Barry's Bay, July 25 to Aug. 11; and the Renfrew Visitor Information Centre, Aug. 15 to Sept. 1. "The books-only, quiet libraries of yesteryear have become dynamic community hubs and to that end, we're thrilled to be partnering with Ottawa Valley Creative Arts Open Studio to bring Pop Up Art to Arnprior," said Arnprior chief librarian Karen DeLuca. "Hundreds of people walk through our doors every day. We're excited to add an interactive art exhibit to a library experience." Pop Up Art features an exhibit titled Extra-Ordinary, which explores how ordinary objects can take on a larger meaning in our lives. The exhibit includes 11 artists - each has chosen an object as a source of inspiration for their developing art pieces. Objects include a tree, pot, piece of driftwood, pie, saw blade, green glass bottle, birchbark purse, pitcher, plow tip,

Missing from the photo is Tanya Lyons. the piano at Festival Hall and a honeybee comb. The objects are representative of a story surrounding the artists' experiences living in Renfrew County. Some of the stories include how a veteran uses art to heal and live with post-traumatic stress disorder; moving to an old farm in the Valley and discovering remnants from the past; connecting to music in the Valley; looking at the forestry industry today and a hundred years ago; and how moose meat pie ties a community together. Eight different types of media are represented in the art pieces, including found objects, film, ceramic, painting, mosaic, blacksmithing, glass and textiles. The official launch for Pop Up Art is taking place at the Fifth Chute Café in Eganville on Thursday, May 2, from 7 to 9 p.m. Everyone is welcome for this grand opening celebration. Ottawa Valley Creative Arts Open Studio received funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to construct and deploy the Pop Up Art mobile art gallery.

JIM'S RESTAURANT NAVIGATING CH-CH-CHANGES DEREK DUNN In the immortal words (OK, word) of David Bowie: "Ch-chch-ch-changes." We see plenty of change these days, much of it is welcome, but not all. Changes to the debit machine at Jim's Restaurant means patrons can tip with their card. That's good. No change to their world famous gravy. That, too, is good. But new owners Kimberly Telford and Greg Palubiskie know they need more banquets to justify the huge back room, so navigating the treacherous waters of change is at the forefront these days. I stopped in with a friend on a recent Friday at noon to order a classic and see what's new at Jim's. We squeezed into a booth near the windows just as the place began to fill. It would clear then fill again with a late lunch crowd. (A double filling at noon

is every restaurant owner's dream.) Our waitress wasn't fazed in the least; she had plenty of help. Co-owner Telford worked her way around to nearly every customer in relaxed and friendly manner. Butterscotch pie? That's new. And look at all these teas. But enough with change: "I'll have the liver and onions." My friend orders the souvlaki. Very adventurous. Jim's is old school in that three-course meals are stan-

I start with a tomato juice, in keeping with the old-man image cultivated for the day. My friend has a decent sized bowl of piping hot pea soup with crackers. "You want to try some? It's good." Meh. It's hard to stay grumpy when two slabs of liver in a puddle of

gravy are placed before you. I make a venetian liver at home that involves lemon and a fistful of parsley. I've never ordered it before. This one was cut thick. The outside crunch contrasted with the soft - not overdone - inside. With fries and vegetables (that retained their flavour) it was a very good meal. Jim's does diner food the right way: healthy portions at a price point that you'd expect to rise, yet somehow does not. My friend gave his Greek dish a four out of five. Juicy, tasty chicken, but the mashed potatoes and rice were on the bland side. He's so continental. Neither of us expected dessert. I can't remember the last time I ate rice pudding. He had the Jell-O, which I haven't seen since the 1980s commercials. "How's the Jell-O? Medium rare?" As I dipped into the rice pudding, past the whipped cream, I tried to figure out when this dessert became foreign to me. Then the old David Bowie song came back into my head: "Time may change me/ But I can't trace time." Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes, indeed. Jim's Restaurant can be reached at 613-623-5089.

Derek Dunn/Metroland The 2018-2019 Eastern Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association champions, St. Joseph’s Renfrew, are the same winners as last year. They head to Ontario championship in mid-March.

ST. JOSEPH'S VARSITY TEAM WINS EASTERN ONTARIO TWO STRAIGHT TIMES DEREK DUNN The varsity boys' hockey team at St. Joseph's came from behind three games in a row to win their second straight Eastern Ontario championship. The thrilling come-from-behind final game, which gives them a berth in the provincial championship later this month, was an overtime 4-3 win after giving up three goals to L'Escale. Nat Leduc was the hero with is second of the game; Jake Pianosi scored the other two during the tournament at Nick Smith Centre on March 5.

Coach and school teacher Stacey McGregor was impressed at the level of character shown by the boys, who live in Renfrew, Arnprior and surrounding areas. "They were down three goals and could have given up," he said. "That is the sign of a real good team. And they didn't lose a game all year, so that's pretty impressive." This is the second year in a row St. Joe's has won the Eastern Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association championship. McGregor - whose son Nolan is team captain and plays a major role on the team - contrasts last year's

team with the current group: many talented older players were lost, but many younger ones have filled in. "For us, we are a skating and passing team, and add in that never quit attitude and you've got something pretty special." The semi-final game against Charlan was not much different. St. Joe's fell behind by two. Their speed proved too much to handle and eventually pulled ahead for the 4-2 win. That game saw the stands packed with elementary students from Arnprior Catholic school cheering on their team. The first game against Thousand Islands Secondary School saw them down by two before pressing on to win 6-3. The provincial championship is the week of March 17 in Kincardine, near Owen Sound.

SMITHS FALLS INSPIRATIONAL SPEAKER STARTS 10-STOP ENGAGEMENT TO BRING MESSAGES OF HOPE LAURIE WEIR Eleanor Glenn hopes to bring some hope to people across the Ottawa Valley. She started a speaking tour Jan. 29 at the Perth Best Western about her best selling book, How Love Continues, Recognizing the Afterlife, released last fall. "It's a story that I plan on telling in my inspirational talk," the Smiths Falls native told Metroland Media recently. Glenn said she received a message - from her spirit guides or the Source, or the Holy Spirit, whichever way you tend to lean in your beliefs - to "go fix it," she said. The message happened only a week or two before Christmas during a small non-denominational service she attended, particularly to those who lost someone to death in the past year. People spoke the names of lost loved ones, but there was no dialogue

Eleanor Glenn/Facebook Eleanor Glenn is a best selling author who is taking her Message of Hope on tour. There are nine other stops on the tour throughout the Ottawa Valley right through to the end of May. happening, she said. She said she was upset that no messages of hope came through. "I came away from that service that evening, feeling that those who had attended that night were not given any hope. It took me

a few days to figure that out but that's the conclusion I came to." Glenn said she felt she was given this message: "Well then go fix it. The word that locked in my vision was 'go' and I took that literally."

From there she visualized a circle around a map of Smiths Falls and came up with 10 places to host special talks. She said she hopes to bring messages of hope, comfort and optimism to those in attendance. "Given the intimacy or compassion needed for this talk, I need to be as close to my audience as possible," she said. "There is no technology, no power point, no charts or graphs. It's simply me talking. "When our loved ones die, the only thing that we lose of them is the visual presence of that person. But the message is that if you pay close attention in your own life, you will see that everything that made that person truly them their consciousness, their personality, their soul, their spirit, is still with you. And this book goes into that in great detail." Plans have been falling into place since she decided that she needed to do speaking engagements.

She will talk for the first hour, but that last halfhour, they'll have an opportunity to speak with Glenn as well. "Just to start conversation about transition and the passing from this life into the next - within their own families and friendship groups. We need to start thinking and talking about the experience of transition differently. We are not dead, gone, lost we're here. We're just here differently." She will be wearing a large broach on her back either a butterfly or dragonfly. "People will wonder why that broach is on my back. But just because I can't see it ... doesn't mean it's not there. That's the message. And we need to be able to talk about." Glenn will teach those in attendance how to community, how to recognize signs that your loved ones are always present. Her Message of Hope Tour will kick off in Perth

at the Best Western Perth on Jan. 29. From 6:30 to 8 p.m. Admission is $20, payable at the door. Her book will also be available to those in attendance at the end of the evening with 25 per cent off the original price of $25. In September and October, Glenn will be hosting women's retreats for those who would learn more about messages from loved ones. The remaining stops on her 10-stop inspirational speaking tour will include: • March 27: Kemptville's North Grenville Municipal Centre, Suite B, 6:30 to 8 p.m. • April 8: Almonte Old Town Hall, 6:30 to 8 p.m. • April 30: Arnprior Masonic hall, 6:30 to 8 p.m. • May 13: Brockville Convention Centre, 6:30 to 8 p.m. • May 26: Carleton Place Grand hotel, 2 to 3:30 p.m. (the only afternoon event) • May 28: Smiths Falls Community Centre (upstairs), 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Walters, Joan

On February 10th, 2019, Jack Robert Christian Speek joined the circle of life. He is already loved by many; his parents, Samantha Christian and Matthew Speek, big sister Mallory, grandparents, great-grandparents, aunties, uncles and many cousins. Welcome home little Jack.

Veteran WW II 100 years old (Well not really, 97.5 to be exact, but he’d appreciate being rounded up) It’s with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our loving father and grandfather on March 4th, 2019, peacefully & surrounded by love. Affectionately known by many as Grandpa. Predeceased by his sweetheart and love-of-his-life, Madeline (nee Murray). They are doing the box-step together now in the clouds, covering the floor and never passing the same spot twice. Also predeceased by his brother William & sister Isabel Drynan. Loving father of Glenn (Janet), Greg (Judy) & Lisa (Dan). Cherished Grandpa to Kristi (Mark) and Ami (Brandon). Keith was a family man who cherished his time with his children and grandchildren. He was a fixture on his front porch, waving and always ready for a visitor. Often described as a gentleman, he loved to chat and tease. He was well known and loved in Almonte and the Ottawa Valley. Keith grew up in the village of Clayton and it always remained close to his heart. He served in the Canadian Armed Forces during the Second World War, stationed at the base in Jamaica. Most of his life he made a living driving trucks: lumber, bread and ice cream. In his retirement years his dream of opening up Grandpa’s Chips became a reality. He had his secret method for making fries and was told he made the best around. Never a man to be still, he also dabbled in woodworking and that too became a side business. Perhaps all this work was key to his longevity. He will be missed by many. Special thanks to the staff of Orchard View for their loving care. Private family service will be held in the C. R. GAMBLE FUNERAL HOME CHAPEL 127 Church Street, Almonte, Ont. (613)256-3313 For those who may choose to honour Keith with a memorial donation please consider the charity of your choice.

"The main misconception made for disability is that it only involves people in wheelchairs, when it can encompass anyone who is

hard of hearing, visually impaired, mentally impaired, anyone like that. These types of people have difficulty finding a job, so this event can open the doors for businesses to bring these people on," Campbell continued.

How often Mother said, "I don't know what we would do without flour bags." When she made that statement, I would look around me, and I would think to myself, 'yes, indeed, where would we be without flour bags'. Certainly, I wasn't the only one at the Northcote School to wear flour bag underwear, but that didn't mean I liked the bloomers any better. I much preferred it when Mother used the bags for many other purposes in our house on the farm. I didn't know that bed sheets came in one piece until the first time I slept overnight at my little friend Joyce Francis' house. Ours had a seam up the middle

and one across from side to side. It took four bags to make one sheet. The long white pinnies came right out of the flour mill in Renfrew. These aprons often still showed the markings "Pride of the Valley" because Mother wasn't too fussy about bleaching out the printing, as she would be if the bags were being used for something like new kitchen curtains. Of course, there would be rows of rickrack braid around the edges and on the tie-backs to brighten them up, and it wasn't unusual for Mother to make new curtains every spring without laying out a penny. There was always a good many pieces of the braid loose in the bottom drawer of the old Singer sewing machine to fuss them up. Stacked in the back-tothe-wall cupboard, there was a pile of tea towels. Once a flour bag was opened up flat and cut in half, the two pieces were the perfect size for a tea towel. On the very bottom of the pile there would be three or four that were only taken out if we had company. They had been bleached within an inch of their lives, hemmed

all around, and on each end, there would be embroidery work done by my sister Audrey, who I thought was very clever indeed. Her favourite design was a teacup and saucer, which I thought was pretty smart figuring since that was what the tea towel would be drying. It was my poor sister Audrey who was given the task of trying to teach me how to embroider. She started me on French knots which I found impossible! But I was overjoyed when I finally mastered them and could move on to other designs on the flour bag tea towels. When Mother would come home with another pile of flour bags, I knew every last one of them would have a purpose. The ones she preferred only had printing on the front, and so the bleaching was much easier to handle. But these were few and far between. Getting rid of the printing, which was almost always deep blue and bright red, was a chore Mother hated. After many washings, they were soaked in Javel water, and they reeked to high heaven. Then the bags had to be washed again and again to rid them of the smell.

In the summertime when the days were hot and sunny, Mother spread the bags out on the grass, hoping the bright sun would help get rid of the printing. It was Aunt Lizzie, my rich aunt from Regina, who told Mother to use lemon juice. Well, that was all right for Aunt Lizzie who Father said could buy out the bank in Renfrew, but for us, lemons were a luxury used only for pies or tarts, and not to be wasted trying to bleach out flour bags. The best bags often were turned into blouses for Audrey and me, and small halfaprons trimmed with ruffled print. They became small tablecloths and tops for cushions for the old couch in the kitchen. And when Mother said she didn't know what we would do without them, all I had to do was look around our old log house at Northcote, and say to myself, "Yes, indeed. What would we ever do without flour bags." Interested in an electronic version of Mary's books?

KNIGHTS PROVIDE UNFLAGGING SUPPORT FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS JOHN CARTER A Special Olympics 50th anniversary flag flew proudly at St. Joseph's Catholic High School in Renfrew for three days recently thanks to the Knights of Columbus. Four Renfrew and Arnprior Knights attended the school to present the flag that was hoisted to the top of the flag pole by viceprincipal Pam Dickerson. Arnprior Knight Wayne Pickering and Renfrew Knights M.J. Blimkie, Paul Ouellet and Brian Proulx took part in the ceremony Feb. 20 along with St. Joe's

principal Brennan Trainor. The flag, which is covered in well-wishes from various supporters, is one of 23 on the cross-country relay that runs from Jan. 7 to March 25. This area's flag was heading to Bancroft and other Eastern Ontario centres after its three days in Renfrew. The flag relay was introduced in Ontario in 2011 with the flags travelling the province to raise awareness about the link between Special Olympics and Knights of Columbus councils and help with fund-raising and volunteer recruitment.
