Partnership develops

Developers applaud town’s workshop meeting DEREK DUNN

A workshop between town staff and area developers drew a large, upbeat crowd to the Galilee Centre on Oct. 26. About 20 participants filled the dining room for the breakfast meeting, led by Mayor David Reid. He acknowledged the town hasn’t done a good job communicating with developers in the past. But the new administration vows to partner with the likes of Tony and Vince Campanale, Scott McEwen and others for the benefit of all. “Thank you for committing to our town,” Reid said. “We understand that if you are successful, (the) town of Arnprior is successful.” He said town employees and councillors understand they need to improve, but the existing tax base, environmen-

tal regulations and similar obligations will continue to come first. Nevertheless, the town will have clear expectations for stormwater management and other plans. At budget time Reid will suggest the purchase of software to create a planning template. It will have a checklist and timelines so all stakeholders will know who is responsible for what. Town staff is finishing up proper wording on a standards document, public workers director Janet Collins said. Developers have long complained about delays in getting their money back from the town after roads, curbs and other infrastructure is done. The money is usually kept until the work is deemed of good quality. See ‘TOWN’ Page 2

Town prepares for marketing campaign property. If the town decides in favour of, say, basement apartments, high standards to ensure they won’t be damp or cold will be in place. TOWN BRANDING Reid sees an opportunity to attract new residents now the Department of National Defence is moving to the former Nortel campus and the RCMP is at the former JDS Uniphase. While many of the existing employees will continue to live in Orleans or nearer, he is convinced new employees will scout the west end and beyond for homes. It could mean thousands of well-paid jobs shifting from one side of the city to the other. Key, however, will be offering commuter services. Reid is investigating a bus route – possibly with OC Transpo playing a role. The town could obtain gas tax money from the province. Currently about 1,700 commuters head to Ottawa daily from Arnprior. Thom Transit offers one bus run a day. When it comes to branding with, say, a marketing campaign in Ottawa, Reid said it would for the entire town. However, one developer insisted the town brand itself as bedroom community within close proximity to the city. And that boxstores should be welcomed. Reid said he enjoys the small town feel and outdoor opportunities, along with the short drive to Ottawa. Vince Campanale said gas prices are making it difficult to sell Arnprior as a mere 30-minute drive to Kanata. Retirees are the bulk of buyers in his residential development. The town should encourage local job growth, he said, adding new homes are considerably cheaper here, but that the tax rate is almost as high as Otta-

wa’s. Reid said the town has the services, facilities and infrastructure, but that it is up to developers to bring people here. He wished the industrial base was more centralized to show its true impact, but those decisions were made many years ago. “We are not in the business of creating business,” Reid said. “We can only create the environment for growth.” He was told the opinion held by many is that Arnprior was closed to business. If the town is now “open for business” it should market based on proximity to the city, not population. Another suggested taking out ads saying Arnprior’s population is ‘x’ but that it wants to be ‘y.’ The town’s website says the population would max out at 10,000, which turns off developers. It was explained that unless the town annexes land from surrounding areas, the population can’t top that level. Highrises aren’t possible without converting to fulltime firefighters, along with following other provincial rules. It was said that waterfront views are stunning and filled with potential for development. It was determined that for every 30 homes built, the tax rate drops 1 per cent for every taxpayer. To defend criticism of high taxes, town officials said the county and school boards get 58 per cent of all property taxes collected. Reid and staff were congratulated for meeting with developers, but that no major businesses have opened in many years. There is much room for improvement, said Tony Campanale. “There’s a lot of frustration in the room,” he said. It was suggested the town hold regular meetings or even form a developers’ advisory committee. Reid reiterated that he wants to partner with them for mutual benefit, but that it has to happen within existing rules.

Continued from front One said he waited five years to get “securities” returned. Lengthy delays cut into cash flow. Reid said 30 days is reasonable. Environmental studies are the bane of developers’ existence. Many agreed the upfront costs in both time and money are too onerous. Plus developers have to hire scientists to determine facts, but that when it comes to council meetings, area residents and environmentalists can use hearsay, one developer said. Reid, an engineer, emphasized he is sympathetic, but said the town takes its orders from Queen’s Park. The mayor switched topics to contaminated “brown-field” sites. Sites such as former gasoline stations cost a lot of money to clean up. It is less expensive to pay property taxes annually than de-contaminate to a degree where the land can be sold. Reid said the provincial government offers grants to cover a town’s offer to forgive 50 per cent of property taxes for 10 to 20 years if the money is put toward cleanup costs. Council hasn’t approved going that route yet. Some developers on hand said the town should have more than one firm involved in reviewing development proposals. It is in that company’s favour to draw out the process, costing developers and the town more money, they said. But if two or three were available, the competition would ensure high quality work for the least amount. Reid was skeptical at first, saying the any company involved would have to know the town and municipal government. Developers shot back saying it would be the firm’s choice to inform itself or not participate. If one performed poorly, they wouldn’t be offered another contract. Coun. Lyle Anderson, who works on Parliament Hill, said three or four engineering firms are always involved in his workplace. Reid warmed to the idea, especially the notion of performance standards. On the topic of homeowners renovating to create apartments – often called granny or in-law suites – the town remains split. It’s one thing for baby boomers to move in with their children, but another to have it used as a rental

Transport Pontiac-Renfrew is one step closer to eventually creating a commuter rail link through the Upper Ottawa Valley between Pembroke and the Ottawa VIA Rail station. On Oct. 26, city council gave its consent for TPR to acquire and operate the 32 kilometres of the rail line – known as the Beachburg Subdivision – that lies within the city’s boundaries. It runs through West Carleton and Kanata and ends in Nepean, near Walkley Road, but TPR would look at acquiring “running rights” to use other tracks to get people to the VIA station on Tremblay Road in the city’s east end. It was the final approval out of nine municipalities the group needed to move forward with a plan to buy the line and use it to run more freight routes – and eventually, a commuter rail service. “It is essential,” TPR’s Terry Gibeau, former mayor of Arnprior, said of the city’s approval. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson said a survey taken in the Ottawa Valley indicated a commuter line would attract several hundred riders. “Kanata people would be able to get on there if they wanted to – it would be in the business park,” she said. “I think it could be very useful in Kanata, especially the Kanata Business Park.” Ottawa doesn’t want to have any li-

ability for the project, according to the motion passed by city council. But it’s an idea that has some support around the council horseshoe, including from deputy mayor and West Carleton Coun. Eli El-Chantiry. El-Chantiry, who sits on TPR’s board of directors, said the initiative is a “very credible” one. “Those tracks are very important to us … We don’t want to make the same mistakes our predecessors made by pulling them,” he said. More than 10,000 people commute to Ottawa from the Valley, and a TPR study found that 25 per cent of those commuters would use the rail system instead, El-Chantiry said. Gibeau said CN Rail is set to sell the line to TPR. That could happen as early as January 2012. In the short term, that will mean more freight shipping and, therefore, more jobs in the Ottawa Valley, Gibeau said. CN is only running the line one day per week for freight, and TPR would have it run seven days a week, Gibeau said. A short line owned by a smaller, local group would also provide better service and hopefully attract more companies who would want to use the line to ship their goods, Gibeau added. “But we haven’t lost sight of the fact that we want to get into a commuter service,” he said. Gibeau is setting his sights a year and a half into the future. That’s when he says TPR could be ready to run a

commuter rail service through the Valley, starting in Pembroke and ending in Nepean. The line runs from Pembroke through Beachburg to Renfrew County before skirting into the Pontiac in Quebec. It crosses back into Ontario at Fitzroy Harbour before heading to Nepean, so there would be a number of commuter stops in Ottawa, Gibeau said. TPR will also resume talks with OC Transpo about offering bus passes along with the commuter rail fare, so travelers can reach their final destination. Those talks were going well a couple of years ago, Gibeau said. “It will probably add to OC Transpo’s business,” he mused, and it could take pressure off OC’s park-and-ride lots. James Allen, a former rail manager and consultant for TPR, said the commuter line could have a “very dramatic impact” on OC Transpo and how the transit authority distributes its service in areas where TPR and OC Transpo could overlap. The heavy commuter rail line and the proposed path of Ottawa’s planned light-rail system don’t intersect. Looking even further into the future, Gibeau said TPR could look at signing agreements with the owners of other rail lines, including ones that run to other commuting origins such as Smiths Falls. TPR was created in 2009 after CN put the Beachburg Sub on the list for abandonment.

Some Renfrew County railway signals are covered in garbage bags. In other places, the signals remain uncovered, but school bus drivers have hesitated about whether they should be stopping at those crossings. “To stop or not to stop,” has been the question, said Renfrew County property and development director Paul Moreau at the Oct. 26 meeting of Renfrew County council. Moreau says he has been informed that the Renfrew detachment of the OPP is not going to enforce stops by bus drivers on the discontinued sections of the Canadian Pacific rail

line. Moreau checked with Staff-Sgt. Colin Slight, the commander of the Renfrew detachment, to determine the extent of OPP enforcement. After consulting with Ministry of Transportation and OPP officials, including the OPP’s regional manager of traffic, Slight said there will be no enforcement where the tracks are removed on both sides of the crossing. Some school buses have been stopping on Raglan Street near Munroe Avenue, in downtown Renfrew, even though no train tracks remain on either side of the intersection. Canadian Pacific has contracted out the dismantling of the railway this

summer and fall. A total of about 40 kilometres of rails and related equipment has been collected between Renfrew and Cobden this year. Much more equipment will be collected on the line running between Mattawa and Smiths Falls in 2012. Some confusion has remained because, in some places, the tracks remain embedded in the road or highway, but have been removed from both sides of the crossing. In the southeast end of Renfrew and through Arnprior, the tracks remain in place along with railway signals, since dismantling of those rails isn’t expected to happen until 2012. Therefore, OPP enforcement will remain in place at those crossings.

Recycling options pondered by M-B JOHN CARTER

buy into the fact it will save them money in the long run by extending the life of their landfill. It was noted education and encouragement works better than a big stick when it comes to increasing recycling in the country. Residents need to see clearly recycling will not only help the environment, but will also reduce taxes needed to run waste management programs. It was suggested the province could help by legislating less packaging and

a bottle-can refund policy to deter them from being discarded in landfills and along roadways. The current recycling level in McNabBraeside is 30.4 per cent. The strategy would boost that level to 38 then 47 per cent, closer to the province’s goal of 60 per cent. The public has until this Friday, Nov. 4 to provide input on the proposals, some of which are expected to be implemented in time to be included in next year’s municipal budget.

There are several ways to increase the amount of waste being recycled, but not all are workable in a rural area, McNab-Braeside public works committee members and staff were told Oct. 17. The township held a public consultation session on its plans to develop a waste recycling strategy in conjunction with Horton township, which held a similar session the next evening. Stantec officials Cathy Smith and Gerry Lalonde presented a number of possibilities, including implementing a clear garbage bag policy to deter people from throwing out recyclables, doubling the size of blueboxes, and promoting more backyard composting and reuse practices. Smith noted a compost pickup/processing program at an estimated $80,000 a year is too expensive, at least in the short term, to properly consider in a rural area It was noted the current recycling contractor, Beaumen, does not favour larger containers, maintaining they are unsafe for his workers. A clear bag rule would not likely go over well unless residents

Valley village inspires songstress DEREK DUNN

The Valley inspired a young singersongwriter to surround herself with some of the industry’s best to produce her debut LP entitled Waba. Twenty-two-year-old Alexandra Stewart, speaking to the ChronicleGuide from Manhattan, lived in the area and attended St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Arnprior until her family moved to the U.S. when she reached her teens. There she studied music at the University of Miami, graduating with a specialty in jazz; but she always kept a soft spot for her childhood days in the Valley. “The album’s really about my childhood, my experiences growing up in a small town,” Stewart said. “It’s a very personal record – with haunting melodies and interesting string arrangements.” Although an Indie rock project, she brings together her extensive knowledge of music to create a sophisticated sound that others with a musical ear should pick up on. That’s because she collaborated with mixing engineer Mark Lawson who recently recorded the Juno and Brit Award winning album Suburbs by Arcade Fire as well as Joe Lambert who has developed a worldwide client base, working with a wide variety of record labels, producers and artists including Kanye West, The National, The B-52’s, Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Gang Gang Dance, City And Colour, and many more.

Alexandra Stewart is raising money to support her album entitled Waba. She’s halfway there but the deadline looms. “The idea began on my Great Grandmother’s piano in an old Victorian home,” she said. “I’ve lovingly crafted these songs and brought in the most talented musicians I could reach to bring them to life.” CONTRIBUTERS NEEDED Stewart also produced a video describing the album with song titles like: Lonewolf, PowWow, Cursed in the Night, Lovesick, Soul like a Ghost, You Don’t Know How, Indian Summer

(composed by Victor Herbert in 1919), Lullaby, and Graveyard. Found at, the record needs financial backing to bring it to life. Stewart hopes to reach $6,000 by Sunday, Nov. 27. She has $3,476 from 44 worldwide backers as of Nov. 2. If the total isn’t reached the money is handed back. “It’s very much an all-or-nothing thing,” she said. The site brings artists and backers together, but only a handful of top quality videos with specific intentions are selected. Stewart considers herself fortunate to have been chosen. “It gives the potential for creative minds to come together and make dreams come true,” Stewart said, adding that the music and video are seen as sincere and honest. It’s tough to keep up with honest writing, but Stewart said it’s paramount for her. “Honest writing is definitely tough, but having that approach makes for better music.” She hopes to make it to Ontario, especially Arnprior, during the Christmas holiday season. But by living in Brooklyn, Stewart knows how tentacles can grow all around. “I still remain in touch and I adore being there,” she said. “I can name every one of my teachers. Hopefully I can get there during the holidays.” Anyone interested in more should visit

Change your clocks, test your smoke detectors

It’s time to ‘fall back’ this weekend and the Arnprior Fire Department is taking advantage by testing its emergency siren and reminding residents to change their smoke alarm batteries. Daylight Saving time ends at 2 a.m. this Sunday, Nov. 6, so residents need to turn their clocks back an hour before going to bed Saturday night. At about 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, a test of the Arnprior emergency siren will be conducted. Mayor David Reid notes that the emergency siren is tested in the spring

and fall of every year, around the time clocks are changed. “Arnprior fire department makes use of the siren test to serve as a reminder for all residents and landlords of rental buildings to test residential smoke alarms and replace batteries as needed,” said Reid. In order to survive a fire, you need early warning and know what to do when the smoke alarms sound. It’s the law to have working smoke alarms on every storey of the home and outside all sleeping areas.

Arnprior Fire Chief John Okum cautions that failing to maintain smoke alarms in working order places lives in jeopardy, and is also against the law. “Our approach is to educate and remind residents of the importance of maintaining working smoke alarms in all residential buildings,” he said. “Do the right thing … maintain all smoke alarms in working condition and test regularly.” This a good time to test carbon monoxide detectors as well, he adds.

Debate brews over selling booze at convenience stores DEREK DUNN

A renewed push to allow the sale of beer and wine at convenience stores has an opposition coalition contacting municipal governments in Arnprior, McNab-Braeside and elsewhere. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), the Ontario Public Health Association, and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health penned a letter detailing the dangers of alcohol and the rise of consumption in regions with privatized alcohol sales. “Alcohol is not an ordinary commodity and it should not be sold as one,” the letter reads. “The strong links between privatized alcohol sales, increased consumption and increased alcohol-related harms to society are well-documented.” It goes on to say LCBO employees are trained in socially responsible service, including how to spot under-age or intoxicated customers. Ontario Convenience Stores president Dave Bryans has nothing against MADD and its partners that oppose the idea, but says studies and statistics prove consumers want the service and store employees are better than LCBO employees at following the rules. “Look, we have a lot of respect for MADD, all of us do. But we have to be careful at fear-mongering,” Bryans said. “The fact is, MADD isn’t telling the whole story.” He cites an independent study conducted by Statopex Field in May. It conducted an independent mystery shopping study of convenience stores, the LCBO and the Beer Store to determine how well each dealt with age checks of minors attempting to buy age-restricted products like tobacco and alcohol. In the study, when independently tested with underage secret shoppers (age 15-18), convenience stores scored the highest with an 87.3 per cent pass rate, The Beer Store next with 80.7 per cent and LCBO last with 74.6 per cent; meaning one in four minors successfully purchased age-restricted products from LCBO, and one in five from The Beer Store – compared to one in eight for convenience stores. “The LCBO will get a slap on the

wrist,” Bryans said. “We’ll see a family business (convenience store) shut down if an employee makes a mistake.” An Angus Reid poll last February shows three in five Ontarians support private retailers selling alcoholic beverages in Ontario. The anti-sale coalition says regulations have been shown to be better enforced when the seller is not as financially dependent on maximizing profits. Bryans says the three non-Canadian owners of the Beer Store franchise take profits outside the province.

44 Elgin St. West Arnprior Ont. 613-622-0394

“Alcohol is not an ordinary commodity and it should not be sold as one. ” MADD He added that stores selling beer and wine usually see a boost in job creation. More employees in store act as a robbery deterrent, he said, pointing to provinces that allow for the practice. The coalition says Ontario has about 1,000 LCBO and Beer Stores, but if convenience stores are allowed to compete it could mean an additional 7,000 locations to buy booze. Bryans wants people walking to stores to buy alcohol and, besides, there are numerous rural gas stations and other outlets in Ontario that already sell beer and wine. They’ve seen sale of incidentals like chips and peanuts increase some 30- to 50-per cent. That helps small business in rural communities, and government gets more revenue through licensing fees, he added. “It’s good for everybody,” he said. “We just have the most archaic, outdated laws in the country. But it’s evolving.” Still, Premier Dalton McGuinty has said the law won’t change anytime soon. Bryans said he is patient. The issue has been brewing for 20 years.

PSP moves main office to Arnprior Pacific Safety Products, a leading North American manufacturer of advanced armour and personal protection solutions, announced last week that its head office has been co-located at its Arnprior manufacturing facility. In conjunction with the head office relocation, the company also announced that has successfully subleased its former head office space in Kanata and has settled a lease obligation for a redundant plant location inherited as part of its merger with Zuni Holdings.

In Trendz

The company estimates that it will save about $930,000 in rent and common costs over the remaining terms of the two subject leases. “Having our people physically working together in our Arnprior, Ontario and Dover, Tennessee locations strengthens our culture and makes us more effective,” said chief executive officer Doug Lucky. “Exiting redundant lease obligations allow us to put the cash savings to work elsewhere in the business to create value.”

Town needs branding and jobs

All veterans, troops deserve a medal To the Editor:


rnprior developers have cause for optimism. Mayor David Reid made it clear at last week’s meeting with them that the town is, indeed, open for business. Tough decisions have been made at town hall. Good people have lost their jobs in an effort to move in another direction. Others will get the support they need to do their jobs properly. Reid is doing what he said he would do. He’s changing the culture at town hall. At the meeting, developers learned about updated town standards on all public works infrastructure materials, design and construction. There are updated approval criteria for storm water management, fire flows and water pressure. Proposed subdivisions will see standardized engineering drawings and specifications requirements. A new planning template will outline tasks and responsibilities, and include timelines. Costs to developers will be stabilized: based on number of lots, length of roads and size of parking lots. Again, timelines will be in place and securities (cash deposits) will be returned in a timely manner. Already council has approved a reduction in securities to 25 per cent of the cost of on-site work. There is an acknowledgement that many developments are required to have too many parking spots. It was discussed that perhaps some of the space can be used as greenspace. However, at some point the town must consider a marketing strategy to overcome what many developers call a “closed-for-business” attitude in Arnprior. We agree the town should create an aggressive branding strategy to lure more people here. Doing so will reduce the tax burden on all. The central question is this: Does Arnprior want to be a bedroom community of commuters - similar to Kanata - or is it a small town of families who enjoy quality of life? Does it want boxstores or open spaces; a continuation of the car culture or a vibrant downtown core? The answer isn’t as clear-cut as the question. Obviously it is a hybrid of the two. Still, there are two aspects of the issue we will champion. One, a marketing campaign that targets most of Ottawa is crucial. And, two, Arnprior must focus on creating local jobs. The rising cost of gasoline makes it imperative. We would like to see a robust and open dialogue on the issue. What is your contribution?

Society of the Ottawa Valley (LPSOV) who participated in shaping the entrance design and information board content over the last year through many meetings and discussions; they include Al Beckmann, Don Derraugh, Ron MacIntyre, Brian Patterson, Adrienne Soucy, Dave Stein and Alex Winter. This all-volunteer lead project was made possible by funds donated by local and area townspeople from the original Save the Grove campaign, and held in trust by the LPSOV. The Ottawa Street entrance is the first project undertaken by the group in many years following its reformation last fall. There are many more opportunities to enhance the aesthetic and educational possibilities of the Gillies Grove. The LPSOV will be having its general annual meeting on Saturday, Nov. 19, 1-3 p.m. at the Galilee Centre, Arnprior. Everyone is invited to participate in the meeting, to join the LPSOV, and to provide suggestions as to what projects you would like to see the group tackle next.

Sadly for many veterans, the medal-less, the unacknowledged, theirs is a void of forgetfulness. Our nation had established an honourable tradition of the recognition of volunteerism in the 1940s with the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal (CVSM). Then abruptly on March 1, 1947 that tradition, a part of Canadian Heritage, was stopped. No logical reason was ever given. Near countless others are aware of the proposed Governor General’s Volunteer Service Medal (GGVSM) that is an ongoing effort of integrity to invigorate a nation’s heritage and give dignity and honour to all veterans that have served and would be established for issuance in perpetuity. The GGVSM is proposed to be for all veterans and all troops that have volunteered and served honourably since March of 1947. It is not intended as a ‘period of time medal’. It is proposed as a medal for volunteerism. Neither is it intended as a ‘hand-out’ medal nor a ‘join and get medal’. There should be a period of service involved, i.e. a minimum of a year of service, or once a volunteer enlistee completes their initial engagement of honourable service. Should one be injured to a point where they must be released or if killed in the line of duty prior to completion of their initial engagement, they would automatically be entitled to the medal. Our government has been requested on numerous occasions to do this for our veterans and our troops. The GGVSM would bring dignity and recognition of our medal-less veterans for their conviction to serve our nation. A supporting petition for the GGVSM has been read in the House of Commons no less than 15 times and thousands more support it via an on-line petition. Many veterans have indicated they would be willing to purchase it to offset or cover any associated cost, but I do not believe this is an appropriate route to take. Their volunteerism should not have to be paid for. This act to provide the GGVSM would allow any veteran to participate in events and stand with dignity with a medal that would be a lasting legacy for their family for generations to come. The Air Force Association of Canada fully supported the GGVSM and passed a resolution as such seeking that the GGVSM medal be created, but, alas, we still find little effort for this worthy and integral effort of remembrance. I truly believe that much esteem and honour would be highly noted for the government that would embrace this endeavour of recognition and do this for our veterans and I can only continue to politely ask that our government would do this for the remembrance of all veterans and our troops for honour, dignity, integrity and our heritage.

New Grove entrance a team effort To the Editor: The new Ottawa Street entrance to the Gillies Grove is nearly complete. The natural cedar fence with hand carved finals, iron gates and information kiosk exceeded our expectations and is a tribute to this national natural historic site located in the heart of Arnprior, and a rare remnant of the old growth forests which once blanketed this region. I’d like to thank all the volunteers that worked hard over the last year to make this project happen. Warmest thanks to Tara Pocket for her great fence design and creation of the kiosk information board, Gerry White who created the construction drawings and oversaw its building, Andre Pilon who hand-made each of the wooden finals adorning the fence posts designed in the same style as the post tops to the original entrance that stood decades ago. Many thanks to Brenda Van Sleeuwen from the Nature Conservancy of Canada, and to the remaining board of directors of the Land Preservation

On the heels of an August performance that won rave reviews from audience members, Marcus Magdalena further explores the gender issue in the upcoming Memoirs of a Genderless Warrior in three shows in early November at the Neat CafĂŠ in Burnstown. “This is my second performance in over two decades,â€? says Marcus Magdalena. “What the audience is witnessing is a soul reclaiming their dreams and making them come true.â€? These performances mark a return to theatre after almost 20 years. “ P r e d o m i n a n t ly

working on my own, I have been creating plays since I was a child. I created plays in elementary school and did my own thing in high school.

With nextto-no budget. “My hope is to get funding or get the interest of the National Arts Centre to help make this into something much, much bigger,� says Marcus Magdalena.

Step inside, stay awhile at curling club home tour SHERRY HAAIMA

Have you always wondered what’s behind your neighbour’s front door? The Arnprior Curling Club’s latest fundraiser offers a chance to find out with five of the area’s most beautiful and unique homes opening their doors on Nov. 19. “What better way to spend a dreary afternoon in November than to go to houses that are beautifully decorated with friends or family?” says Joan Wahay, chair of the ACC’s house tour committee. The event includes tea, coffee and desserts and a chance to visit with the homeowners. Wahay brought the idea forward last year. “I love reading about homes and doing home tours,” says Wahay, so doing this kind of event for the curling club was a natural choice. The club is raising money to fund the purchase of the building that houses the club. The Arnprior Agricultural Society now owns the building. Wahay, whose home is featured in the tour, has been busy decorating and researching ideas for layouts to get ready for more visitors than she’s ever

Joan Wahay is such a big fan of home tours that she decided to pitch the idea to the Arnprior Curling Club for a fall fundraiser. On Saturday, Nov. 19, five local homeowners open their doors and the club will host demonstrations. Above, Wahay stands at the front door of her Green Meadow Lane home and right, a comfy resting spot in one of the home’s guest bedrooms. Photos by Sherry Haaima hosted before. There will be demonstrations going on at the curling club on the day of the tour, another great way to get ideas for the holidays. Among the homes is one whose owner is an avid clock collector

and his extensive collection will be on display. DETAILS Homes featured on the tour include: Judy and Doug Algiers’ at 28 Foxtail Cres.; Joan and John

Wahay at 29 Green Meadow Lane; Lenna and Randy Whyte at 15 Ridgeview Dr.; Mavis and Glen Lesway at 151 Duncan Dr. and Marion and Mel Bretzlaff at Home of 298 McLean Ave. The event runs on Saturday, Nov. 19, from 3 to 8 p.m. Cost

for tickets is $25 and more information is available at www. Ticket locations include Robertson’s Furniture, Clip and Snip, Randy Whyte/Callow dentist office, Simply Elegant Decor and Gifts and at Pakenham General Store.

NOTICE OF WATER TREATMENT TOWN OF ARNPRIOR The Town of Arnprior will be conducting maintenance of the disinfection system at the Water Filtration Plant. Due to maintenance requirements the Town will be returning to a free-chlorine process in place of the chloramination process that was implemented in May 2006. The work will begin the week of November 7, 2011 and will be on-going for approximately eight weeks, at which time we will return to chloramination. Residents may notice an increase in odour and taste of chlorine in their drinking water however; free-chlorine is a safe practice and is still used by numerous Municipalities. R0011169738

Not only did they power through opposition teams for a grand total of 498 points this year, the Arnprior District High School varsity girls rugby team mounted an equally impressive defence: zero points against. Needless to say they won the 2011-2012 Upper Ottawa Valley High School Athletic Association championship game. The girls trounced Bishop Smith Crusaders 86-0 at Dochart Park on Oct. 27. Some teams are big and strong but slow; others are speedy but not very solid. Coach Glenn Wallace offered a third option for his team. “We play a high tempo, physical speed game,” he said. “When it takes three or four (opposition) players to bring one of ours down, it makes it tough.” He added that the team worked hard this year. They didn’t simply sit on natural talent. Co-captains Ashlynn Sullivan and Kaitlyn McLeod were pleased with their performance following the game. Sullivan said the team moved the ball cleanly, giving up few fumbles and kept their cool when Bishop Smith – from Pembroke – gained possession. “I felt is was really good,” Sullivan said. “We did everything we talked about doing.” McLeod has her eye on doing at least as well as last year’s team. It finished second in Ontario, winning silver at the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations last year. She was on that team and is confident about this one.

The Upper Ottawa Valley girls rugby champions pose for a photo following the win in the title game last week. The team didn’t give up a point this year and scored hundreds in return. They will vie for the AAA championship this spring. “It think we did really well,” McLeod said. “We’ve got a great chance at going to the finals again.” The team will represent UOVHSAA at the Eastern Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association in the spring of 2012 at the AAA championship.

The team includes: Maureen Freemark, Jess Couture, Raegan Patrick, Erica Campbell, Taylor Bissonnette, Avery Laventure, Rachel Boersma, Ashlynn Sullivan, Hilary Lalonde, Bethany Rampton, Chanelle Fortin, Lisa Roesler, Leah Sziladi, Sandra Hud-

son, Amanda Milne, Laura Graham, Sara Dick, Sybil Jamison, Allie Leckie, Allison Mosley and Brooke Coady. The team won six straight regular season games and its one playoff encounter (it won the semi-final by forfeit).

Football Redmen reach finals The Arnprior District High School senior and junior football teams will play championship games this Friday after convincing semi-final victories Tuesday. The Senior Redmen thumped Fellowes of Pembroke 66-0 on their home field to qualify for the Renfrew County championship game. The regular season champions will host arch-rival RCI at the ADHS field at 1 p.m. Nov. 4. The Redmen capped off an undefeated regular season with a 35-6 victory over RCI last Friday to run their record to 6-0. The winner of this Friday’s game will challenge the Lanark champion next Wednesday, Nov. 9 at a site to be determined (the Renfrew and Lanark league was split into two divisions this year). St. John’s of Perth is hosting Almonte in the Lanark champion-

ship game Friday. Meanwhile, the Junior Redmen rolled over Carleton Place Bears 33-7 at home Tuesday. In the other semi-final, Smiths Falls blanked St. John’s 20-0 to set up another showdown between the two teams that finished 6-0-1 in the regular season. The Redmen and Red Hawks tied 21-21 early in the season in Arnprior, so this Friday’s championship game will be played in Smiths Falls at 1 p.m. BOWLATHON The campaign to raise funds for a new scoreboard continues this Saturday, Nov. 5 with football players taking part in a bowlathon at the Arnprior Bowling Centre.

An eye for sport: Grey Cup champ, scholar, author This is the third in a three-part series on Ottawa Valley residents who played in the Canadian Football League, and their impressions of the CFL today.


One of the last Canadian quarterbacks to see significant playing time in the Canadian Football League, Frank Cosentino, is long since retired, but far from inactive. The author of 15 books, on topics ranging from football and hockey to the history of Almonte, the Eganville resident is now working on his third major book on the Canadian Football League. The book is due out in 2012, during the 100th anniversary of the CFL. It has been more than 40 years since Cosentino retired from a CFL career that featured two Grey Cups with the Hamilton Tiger Cats. But football has remained a fixture in his life, as a coach, historian and fan. He first played football in his hometown of Hamilton, Ont., where he had an inauspicious beginning in the sport, failing to make the first three teams he tried out for. But he wasn’t dissuaded, especially when a growth spurt and successes as a baseball pitcher convinced others he might have quarterback potential. About that time, his father died, leaving Cosentino reeling from the tragedy. “I kind of went into a funk,” he recalls. “I didn’t do well in school.”

But life has a way of turning itself around. Growing about nine inches in Grade 11, he reached 6-foot-3, the same height he is today. He made the junior team that year, and the following season led the Cathedral High School seniors to the city football title. At the time, he had no aspirations to play pro football. But he says sports may have saved him. “Sports was a God-send,” he says. “If I hadn’t had basketball, baseball and football, I probably would have dropped out of school.” Football continued when he headed off to the University of Western Ontario, but he still appeared headed for academic mediocrity, or worse. Looking back, Cosentino said someone needed to light a fire under him, and that person turned out to be Monsignor Wemple, the dean at the university’s King’s College. Called into his office, Cosentino was told he had eight weeks to get his academic act in gear. He did. By second year he earned a B average and was into business school, en route to a bachelor’s degree with honours. But life was getting complicated. To pay his way through university, he worked with the Steel Company of Canada. Then, in his fourth year at Western, he and high school sweetheart Sheila McHugh (whose parents Charlie and Gertrude are from the Renfrew area) were married. At university, he was holding his own as a quarterback, helping Western to two Yates Cups as the Ontario university football

CFL in the

VALLEY If I hadn’t had basketball, baseball and football, I probably would have dropped out of high school. – Future scholar and CFL quarterback Frank Cosentino champion, including 1959 when they beat UBC for the Canadian university title. He also emerged as the Hamilton Tiger Cats’ first draft pick, and his pro football career was underway. Twice he emerged with Grey Cup rings, from Hamilton CFL titles in 1963 and 1965, when the team stars included defensive linemen John Barrow and Angelo Mosca, quarterbacks Bernie Faloney and Joe Zuger, and receiver Hal Patterson. The Cats went 10-4 each of those regular seasons, before prevailing 21-10 over the B.C. Lions in 1963, then 22-16 over Winnipeg two seasons later. In 1963, Cosentino played his share during the regular season, but he never really got off the bench in the playoffs, except to hold for extra points. In fact, one of his more exciting times as a Tiger-Cat includ-

ed the previous season. The date sticks in his mind: Oct. 15, 1962. It was one of Joe Zuger’s first games as quarterback, after previously playing defensive halfback. But Zuger polished his resume that day, throwing eight touchdown passes in a crushing defeat of Saskatchewan, before leaving Cosentino enough playing time to throw two TD passes of his own. But Cosentino’s best seasons, as an individual, weren’t when Hamilton won the Grey Cup, but with the Edmonton Eskimos in 1967 and ’68. After winning less than half their games in 1967, the Esks finished 9-6-1 for third in the Western Conference as Cosentino started 14 times and finished off the other two regular-season games. The Esks then lost a onesided semi-final to Saskatchewan. In 1967 he had one of his best statistical performances ever, completing something like 21 of 25 passes in a close loss to the Ottawa Rough Riders. That performance was followed by a visit to his hometown of Hamilton, where the Esks prevailed after star receiver Ted Watkins dropped a sure touchdown pass from Cosentino’s former teammate, Zuger. The post-game coverage included a photo on the Globe & Mail’s front page of Cosentino hurdling a would-be tackler, as the caption referred to the former Tiger-Cat as Frankie Boy. “I guess I was a fan favourite in Hamilton, but I was a reliever there. I knew my role,” recalls Cosentino. “But I also had a rep-

utation for coming in and scoring a few touchdowns.” During his CFL career, he completed 513 of 1,083 passes for a completion percentage of 47.4. He also threw 48 TD passes and 73 interceptions. His best stats were in 1968 with the Esks when he completed 169 of 330 passes for 2,809 yards. Sixteen passes were for touchdowns. Cosentino was also active on the sidelines. The same year he won his second Grey Cup, in 1965, Cosentino helped found the CFL Players Association. In Edmonton, Cosentino says it was different and refreshing to be out of the local spotlight, after playing in his hometown. But it wasn’t all rosy. There was a rough patch between him and head coach Neill Armstrong, who at one point decided to call all plays from the bench. Following one shutout loss, Cosentino quipped to a reporter that he didn’t like losing, but that at least he knew his playcalling wasn’t to blame. He was hauled into Armstrong’s office and reprimanded. That aside, throughout his football career, Cosentino says he carried his Christian faith with him. This included his customary prayer, during national anthems, to commit to playing the best he possibly could. The third and last CFL team he played for was the Toronto Argonauts. While playing in Edmonton in 1967 and 1968, he worked on his master’s degree in the history of sport. Then he was dealt to Toronto. See ‘COSENTINO’, Page 15

The Senior girls team followed up a 32-18 showdown win over RCI Oct. 25 by thumping Mackenzie 66-8 Oct. 26 and General Panet 64-11 Tuesday. The wins gave the Redmen a perfect 9-0 regular season record and first place ahead of 7-2 RCI in the 10-team league.

Cosentino: Tiger-Cats, Esks, Argos

Continued from Page 14 But first, he had the opportunity to accept a prestigious scholarship, retire from football, and finish his PhD at the University of Alberta. He elected to play one more season, with the Argos, before continuing his doctorate. It was a busy time, but Cosentino says it was made easier with Sheila ‘holding down the fort’ at home with four kids. In Toronto, Cosentino joined other striking Argonauts, as they held out for training-camp pay. They got the pay, and the Argos went on to place second behind the Ottawa Rough Riders, with the help of such long-haired renegades as Mel Profit, Dick Thornton and Dave Raimey. “The spirit on the team was tremendous because all the players were where they wanted to be with the players they wanted to be with,” says Cosentino of the ’69 season, his last as a CFL player. Tom Wilkinson was the starting QB, but Cosentino still saw plenty of action. As proud as he is of his time as a pro player, he says the biggest moments in his life didn’t involve the CFL. First has to be meeting and marrying Sheila. Second was the birth of their first child, Tony. And another big moment, reserved for football, didn’t happen in the CFL. Cosentino says it was winning the 1971 Vanier Cup as head coach of the University of Western Ontario Mustangs, in a nail-biting win over the University of Alberta. The Mustangs would also win another Canadian title in 1973, the year after he finished his doctoral degree with a thesis on the history of Canadian sport. After retiring from the CFL, Cosentino stepped into his second major career, as a university teacher and coach. He was an assistant professor of physical education and head football coach at the University of Western Ontario from 1970 to 1974, before becoming the physical education department head in 1975. In 1976 he moved to York University where he was a professor and chairman of the department of physical education, recreation and athletics, and later named professor emeritus and senior scholar. At York, he was also convinced to return to coaching on two occasions, for another

seven years of work on the sidelines. Now retired, he’s not really. He enjoys playing tennis and golf, and his writing continues. By the early 1970s, his list of authored books began to grow. The 15 books he has authored or co-authored include Canadian Football: The Grey Cup Years; A Passing Game: A History of the CFL, 1969-1994; and works on world-class 19th-century rower Ned Hanlon, Almonte’s sculptor R. Tait McKenzie and basketball founder James Naismith, the Renfrew Millionaires hockey team, and the 1972 CanadaSoviet Union summit series. “I like the research,” says the 74-yearold. “And I like to find the stories behind the stories.” More than 40 years after his CFL career, he maintains a fascination for the game, as a fan and an author-historian, along with life philosophy that has gone basically unchanged. As a quarterback, it was inevitable he would be second-guessed, just as other high-profile athletes are. But in becoming conditioned to handle that role, Cosentino said, “I wasn’t going to second guess what I did, or what anyone else did, not that you don’t try to reshape it.” As a quarterback, he saw himself mostly as an encourager. “And we brought up our kids that way too,” he explains. “Praise is a terrific way to bring out the best in people.” The Cosentinos’ other children are Mary, Teresa and Peter, who has two World Series rings, from his days as marketing vice-president for the Blue Jays. As a Hamiltonian, Cosentino continues to enjoy watching the Tiger Cats. However, he most enjoys watching the Montreal Alouettes, under the direction of QB Anthony Calvillo, or teams coached by Wally Buono, whose B.C. Lions have reversed a horrible start to this season. “(Buono) seems to be composed and thoughtful on the sidelines, and he always seems to come up with a good quarterback and the kind of athletes he wants,” says Cosentino. Whoever he’s watching, the Eganville resident says it’s no surprise the CFL’s attracting a lot of attention. Rosters are larger than several years ago, and players are faster, stronger and bigger than ever.

ing the other semi-final. The two winners will play for the County championship Thursday, Nov. 10. The Junior Redmen ran their record to 8-1 with three wins last week – 40-26 over RCI, 53-16 over General Panet and 38-9 over Ecole secondaire publique L’Equinoxe. With one game remaining, ADHS had clinched second place behind 10-0 Opeongo. The Junior Redmen will also host a semi-final game Nov. 8 and if successful will play in the final Nov. 10.

Packers Rookie Ben Wade (19) confidently strides through the Ottawa West opposition during the game Sunday at the Nick Smith Centre. The Arnprior native scored his second goal of the season with assists from Kyle Daniels and Shane Smith.

Packers take points from Metro rivals The Arnprior Packers earned three out of a possible four points from two tough Metro Division teams on the weekend. The Packers tied Metro-leading Gatineau Mustangs 2-2 on the Quebec side Tuesday and defeated Ottawa West 3-1 in the Nick Smith Centre Sunday in Eastern Ontario Junior B hockey action. The victories kept Arnprior in second place in the Valley Division, three points ahead of the surging Almonte Thunder. The Packers are five points behind first-place Perth, but have a chance to make up some ground as they host the Blue Wings this Sunday, Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. Arnprior scored short-handed and powerplay goals Sunday in the win against the Golden Knights. Packers top scorer Taylor Collins set up Joe Kyte for the game’s first goal when Arnprior was short-handed. Collins scored an insurance goal on the powerplay with 8:02 left in the third to clinch the 3-1 win. Ben Wade scored an even-strength goal late in the first period for Arnprior and Neil Clarke scored Ottawa West’s only goal in the second frame. Shane Smith had two helpers for Arnprior Ottawa West outshot Arnprior 33-24, but Matt Couvrette continued his strong play in the Packer net making 32 saves. Ottawa West didn’t help their cause by taking two game misconduct penalities and three misconducts in the second period. Packer Brendan Rousselle received 17 minutes in penalties for tussle with Josh Colley of Ottawa West. Action at the Nick Smith Centre got off to a slow start due to a scheduling error. Players began warming up at 2 p.m. for the 2:30 game, but there was no one to drop the puck. Officials, who had been scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. start time, were not informed when the game time was changed. Thankfully, referees from Pembroke (Mike Dobson, Jason Brazeau and Ryan Arbuthnot) answered the call and hurried to the rink to make a 4:30 time a possibility. Against Gatineau, Arnprior outshot the Mustangs 14-6 in the third period and was rewarded with a Casey Doner goal to give them the tie.

The Packers then weathered a strong Gatineau attack in overtime to escape with the point. Ryan Eady scored Arnprior’s other goal early in the game before Gatineau took the lead with two goals in the first period. Couvrette held the 11-3 Mustangs off the scoresheet for the rest of the way. Arnprior travels to Metcalfe for another Metro-Valley tilt this Friday, before returning home to host the Perth Blue Wings at the Nick Smith Centre Sunday. With files from Chris Couper

Prior Players president Don Lacasse is extending an invitation to all to come out to this year’s fall production of Norm Foster’s ‘The Long Weekend’. Prepare yourself for an hilarious look at the twists and turns of married life, as Abby and Roger spend their long weekend with their close friends Wynn and Max. The antics of these two mischievous swinging couples will keep you guessing, “what’s next?” The baggage that these troubled couples share sets the stage for some great one-liners. You’ll be doubled over with laughter. Prior Players are happy to announce the return of the popular ‘dinner theatre’. Prior Players are one of the few amateur theatre groups who offer dinner theatre. This is a great evening out starting with a sit-down homestyle meal and enough scrumptious dessert to get you through to intermission. Lacasse reminds theatre patrons to pick up dinner tickets no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Regular theatre tickets will be available at the door. All tickets can be purchased at The Hair Zone, 104 Elgin St., or Arnprior Bulk & Natural Foods at 115 John St. North. Dinner theatre is offered on Friday, Nov. 11 and Saturday, Nov. 12, with dinner at 7 p.m. and curtain at 8 p.m. Regular theatre is also available on these two nights with curtain time at 8 p.m. as well as Friday, Nov. 18 at 8 p.m. Due to increasing demand and popularity, the Prior Players are offering a matinee on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 2 p.m. Refreshments will be available at all performances during intermission. Lacasse has produced this fall’s play. Together with an enthusiastic cast and team of volunteers, the group feel this is a production you won’t want to miss.

On Sunday, Oct. 29, residents of Arnprior and surrounding area had an opportunity to participate in a silent auc-

tion for artwork done by members of L’Arche Arnprior. Between 2 and 4 p.m., nearly 30 pieces of incredible art work were on display at Carleton Reid Memorial Hall. Friends, family, neighbours and even strangers

Arnprior OPP are asking for help after a parked car was hit on Ottawa Street early Sunday morning. The OPP report a 23-yearold Arnprior woman has been charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failing to remain. On Oct. 30 between midnight and 1 a.m., Arnprior OPP Constable Mark Young responded to the fail-to-remain motor vehicle collision on Ottawa Street. A dark pickup truck was reported to be seen speeding down the street and hitting a parked car. Arnprior OPP is requesting any witnesses, specifically anyone attending Saturday night’s Rock for CHEO party at the St. John Chrysostom Parish Hall who may have further information to please contact the detachment.

Sexual assault charges laid A 39-yearold Arnprior man has been charged with sexual assault, sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching and indecent acts.

Shortcut across Highway 17 dangerous



Cutting a hole in the fence to cross the highway is dangerous and breaking the law, stress Arnprior OPP.

OPP emphasize that there is no crossing for pedestrians at that point of the highway. “OPP officers have responded to a number of fatalities due to pedestrians attempting to cross multi-lane highways. It is important for the members of the community to be aware of the dangers and abide by the laws put in place to keep us safe.� The OPP note that individuals conducting this type of activity could face charges of trespassing under the trespass to property act and/or mischief under the Criminal Code of Canada DRUG CHARGES LAID On Oct. 19, Const. Ben Sidney of the OPP Highway Safety Division conducted a traffic stop on Daniel Street in Arnprior. As a result, the driver, a 27-year-old Beckwith Township man, has been charged with possession of marijuana contrary. On Oct. 25, Const. Barry Richardson was conducting stationary radar patrols on Moore Street in McNab-Braeside when he observed an automobile in excess of the speed limit and conducted a traffic stop. As a result, the driver, a 23-yearold McNab-Braeside resident, has been charged with driving while under suspension and possession of marijuana. DRIVER ARRESTED On Oct. 23, Constables Paul Emon and Raul Pasta of the Arnprior OPP detachment were dispatched to a motor vehicle collision on Russell Street in Arnprior.

You were always true and patient, Through the years you struggled on, And those hands that rest forever, Made the home that now is gone.

From all your kids, Margaret, Allison, Brier and Jack

We thought of you today, But that is nothing new, We thought of you yesterday And will tomorrow too. We think of you in silence And make no outward show, For what it meant to lose you Only those who love you know. Remembering you is easy, We do it every day, It’s the heartache of losing you That will never go away.
