Racing fair game Horse racing, solar barn in the works JOHN CARTER

MAKING TRACKS

While the tracks are being pulled up and shipped out along the CP line up the Valley, there is still hope that the CN line can be saved. 6

FIRE STRIKES

Horse racing and a solar barn are still in the works for the Arnprior Fairgrounds, says Arnprior Agricultural Society president Jeff Desarmia. The two additions will be a major step forward for the society and help continue its efforts to make the Arnprior Fair one of the most impressive in the Valley. The fair had another strong outing on the weekend, with a particularly strong crowd Saturday taking advantage of the sunny weather and the demolition derby. Despite a hiccup with the last-minute decision to back away from holding a beer garden, fair board members were generally pleased with the public response. Desarmia said the fair board decided the Wednesday before the fair to withdraw its beer tent application because of the cost of security and the threat of liability for the society member who had to sign the forms. The whole beer garden issue and the new rules that came into effect June 1 allowing beer-drinkers freer rein to move around the site if the permit so specifies is confusing and troublesome, said Desarmia. However, he is much more buoyant about the changes that will come about with the building of the solar barn and the revival of harness racing at the fairgrounds next spring.

Sandvik workers back on the job DEREK DUNN

derek.dunn@metroland.com

The 27-day-old Sandvik strike at the Arnprior plant drew to a close with the ratification of a collective agreement Monday afternoon, Aug. 8. The Canadian Auto Workers union, representing 157 workers, voted 80.6 per cent in favour of the company’s final of-

fer. The contract is good for three years, something that pleases both management and the union. Some employees were back to work Tuesday, with the bulk of them back to regular shifts Wednesday. One issue had to do with workers’ return time; some were not expected back for another couple of weeks.

Sandvik negotiations tough at times

Continued from front But as part of the deal, they were brought back into the fold at the same time as their colleagues. Crucial issues for the union that found their way into the contract included: • maintaining pensions the way they were; • no changes to the cost-of-living allowance; • a one per cent wage increase in the final year. Sandvik Materials Technology general manager Michael Hall said the company is saving more on the monetary side than earlier in the negotiation process. Some of the language around benefits also changed, along with no changes to job security, he said. There was little acrimony during the summer strike, he added, saying strikers were well-behaved and respectful outside the plant gates. However, Hall said it was a “tough” negotiating committee on the union side. But he expects no lingering bitterness; the employees are professionals and ready to regain customer confidence, he added. “We are about two weeks behind in some areas,” Hall said. “We have to sat-

isfy our customers. “That’s our first priority.” Hall expects the strike will be put in the past quickly, and that the company intends to respect the collective agreement it signed. NEGOTIATIONS CONTENTIOUS While neither side described the negotiation process as bitter, it is clear union leader Derek Mosley remains upset at company press releases that were issued. “There were lots of negative stuff said about the union,” Mosley said. “We never changed our story. And we’re not greedy, if you look at the final deal. We were just looking for a fair deal for our members.” He said no one ever wants to go on strike, and that all members are glad to be on the job. Solidarity is strong, he added, and everyone is ready to do the best they can to get the company up and running smoothly again. Swedish-based Sandvik, makers of steel tubing for the nuclear, aerospace and automotive industries, has never had a strike in Arnprior before.

New orders for fire truck plant Things are heating up for an Arnprior fire truck manufacturer. Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp (AFTC) announced in late July that it has been awarded the contract for the manufacturing of two custom fire apparatus. The Corporation of Norfolk County, located on Lake Erie between Toronto and Windsor, awarded the tender of a custom rescue and commercial pumper/tanker to AFTC to be completed and delivered in late 2011. Manufacturing of the trucks will be at the company’s new state-of-the art plant in Arnprior. “Norfolk County Fire & Rescue Services is pleased to have Arnprior Fire Trucks building our newest tanker and rescue apparatus,” said Norfolk County fire chief Terry Dicks. “The build team in Arnprior have the experience, knowledge and pride to build a truck that will be reliable and safe for our community for years to come.” The new plant is in full production and is actively entering the emergency vehicle

service and manufacturing sectors. AFTC boasts high end CNC machining capabilities, laser cutters, laser welders and other precision machinery. The plant operates to the high AS9100 Aerospace quality standards. AFTC shares the Plaintree resources of almost 100 employees including professional engineers, draftsmen, CAD operators, certified welders and support staff. Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp (www.arnpriorfiretrucks.net) was formed with the key employees of Seagrave Canada (formerly Almonte Fire Trucks) and they pledge to continue building fire apparatus with the pride and quality that they have for over 20 years. “Now that we are fully operational and producing reliable fire apparatus, we would like to welcome all former and new clients to contact us,” said Graeme Cross, business development manager for Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp. “If clients need generic apparatus specifications and drawings, parts or service, we would be glad to help.”

From anywhere to anyone, including Braeside? They have to know that we’re not giving up the post office fight, says McNab-Braeside mayor SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

McNab-Braeside council has not forgotten its pledge to keep full postal services running out of Braeside. Following the March 2011 temporary closure of the former post office in Braeside, Canada Post Corporation officials set up community boxes in the village, a step they said was a temporary fix until Sept. 30 while a postmaster was found. So far, council, which had offered to provide a location for the post office, has learned of no movement on the issue, explained Mayor Mary Campbell at the Aug. 2 meeting. “They have to know that we’re not giving up the fight,” said Campbell, who received council’s approval to draft a letter to Canada Post to find out what’s being done. “I don’t want to see our residents have to go to some little box in Arnprior to get their mail each day,” said Campbell. She referenced correspondence received from Sandra Wilson, vice-president of the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association (CPAA), a group that has been lobbying Canada Post to re-

■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■

open the Braeside office. Wilson explained the Braeside office is now a “grade” office, meaning Canada Post must provide the premises but that the corporation would like to downgrade it to a “group” post office, which requires the postmaster to provide the premises. A downgrade would mean cost savings for Canada Post and lower wages for the postmaster. There is also a part-time position in the office, something Wilson says Canada Post does not want to recognize and that would count for more points in the evaluation the organization says the corporation must undertake. “CPC says ‘From anywhere to anyone’, what about the residents of McNab-Braeside?” says Wilson in her letter. It seems the position of postmaster in rural McNab-Braeside is not all that desirable for candidates, with compensation at one rate based on the number of boxes and another rate for the number of rural route addresses. Because the township includes rural route numbers that fall under both Arnprior and Renfrew, there is a disadvantage that Campbell surmised goes beyond just the local municipality.

DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Plans are finally moving forward to develop land across from the Grove Nursing Home façade. For the last 27 years, landowner Don Johnston has wanted to build homes for seniors. His plan presented to Arnprior’s current town council at Monday’s meeting show a development of 40 townhouses, a 52-unit three-storey apartment building, and a road layout and serving easements. It could mean space for about 150 people in a town short on seniors’ accommodations. It’s a short jump to have the zoning switched from residential one to residential three, and Johnston isn’t expecting any problem with winning provincial approval. What might prove a little trickier is that the land, close to the historic Gillies Grove, falls within the Natural Heritage Area. Planner Robin Smith’s report to council shows the challenges Johnston faces. “(Natural Heritage Area) recognizes a wet creek habitat which provides valuable extension and diversity to the Grove habitats,” reads the report. “In addition to this designation, potential environmental issues identified included its proximity to the Grove, the

presence of Red-shouldered Hawk in the Grove and the possibility of fish habitat in the stream crossing the property.” The town will approve the development only when it demonstrates “no negative impacts will occur on the natural feature or ecological functions,” the report states. The town also expects a 10-metre wide “no-touch” buffer adjacent to the northerly limit of the site next to the Gillies Grove. The area must be cleared of nonnative species and left to naturally regenerate. Johnston said he appreciates that this is the first step the town must take before giving approval, but doesn’t anticipate any insurmountable problems relating to wildlife. “It’s not supposed to be a big deal,” Johnston said. “We are hoping the new council will give more help than the old council.” The next step is a public meeting. While some people in town are fiercely protective of the nearby Grove, Johnston doesn’t anticipate much resistance to his plan. He knows feathers were ruffled when he clearcut trees on the property a couple of years ago, but insists they were all rotten and needed to come down. He added that homes for seniors is a need right now, and that with his development and the possible expansion of the Grove Nursing Home onto two acres

of property across Division Street, that problem would lessen. VAN DUSEN ROAD It looks like the large crowd that attended a recent council meeting got their way. The group of Van Dusen Drive homeowners wanted their road, which snakes around the back of the airport, paved by the end of summer. The $120,000 cost to pave a road with only about 26 homes on it and 100 car trips daily, didn’t sit well with Coun. Ted Strike. He said he voted in favour of the project because the money is coming from a pre-annexation fund of $166,000. The money must be earmarked for infrastructure projects in the Vanjumar Road area. Reeve Walter Stack disagreed, saying the road is in terrible shape and would need to be repaved no matter what part of town it appeared. Smiths Construction Company won the contract. TIERNEY STREET Tierney Street South will be reconstructed by Ainley Group; it won the design and engineering services at a cost of almost $32,000. While about $2,000 more than the lowest bid, town staffer John Steckly told coun-

cil that Ainley included a $7,000 study in its bid for free. Mayor David Reid is not happy with the scoring scheme town staff uses to determine who wins contracts. He would like to see more points given to financial costs. The town has budgeted $478,000 for the entire project, which may see the work done staring in early spring. Coun. Dan Lynch pressed staff to get started on preliminary work for neighbouring Hugh and Landrigan streets. Council would like to see “camera-ing” done to exam water and sewage pipes early in the process, thus preventing delays. Reeve Walter Stack said Landrigan Street, because school buses travel on it, will likely have a lot of damage. He is keen to see that companies like Ontario Hydro and Enbridge are made fully aware that work will be done soon. If they want to replace telephone poles or gas lines, this would be the time to let the town know. ROOF REPLACEMENT The town is spending $5,150 to replace the flat canopy roof at the fire hall/OPP station. Water damage from last winter forced the work. Tri-Crest Roofing and Waterproofing won the contract. Many others indicated they aren’t interested in doing flat roof work.

Large, graphic photos of mutilated fetuses Tuesday morning on either side of Madawaska Boulevard in Arnprior left some commuters in a state of shock. The pro-life group Show the Truth, based near Lindsay, Ont., had about 45 people from across the province holding the 30 signs. Spokesperson Siobhan O’Kane said the demonstration was meant to provoke. “People should feel upset about abortion,” O’Kane said. “If people say they are too upset to eat their lunch, I say what about all those people (aborted fetuses) who don’t get to eat?” Upset residents said the group should not have had children holding the signs, and that children in cars should not be forced to witness the photos. O’Kane said children four years old and under don’t understand the pictures, and that older Photo by Brier Dodge ones will be upset only if they hear their parents screaming in The anti-abortion protestors used protest.

McNab-Braeside

Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Speeding and false 911 calls continue to be a problem in McNab-Braeside Township. There were 121 false 911 calls in the township in the first half of this year, according to the Community Police Advisory Committee activity report. Coun. Brad McIlquham, who sits on the committee, highlighted the report and CPAC’s strategic plan at the Aug. 2 regular council meeting. “There’s a huge amount of 911 calls and a lot of them are mistakes,” said McIlquham. “It’s supposed to be for serious incidents and it’s being used for everything.” Mayor Mary Campbell questioned why the township’s numbers are so elevated. “Why is McNab-Braeside so much higher than any other township?” asked Campbell. In neighbouring townships, the numbers were Greater Madawaska 32, Whitewater 36 and Horton 41.

McIlquham said it’s possible the number is higher simply because McNabBraeside has a larger population. He added that the OPP have suggested not enough public knowledge and people being careless are among reasons for the high number of false calls. Mischief occurrences are up considerably over the past two years and OPP are working to address that, said McIlquham. First on the list of local initiatives is increased visibility within communities to address prohibited activities on or near municipally owned properties, including parks and recreational facilities. Increased highway safety is second on the priority list and includes enforcement of speeding and impaired driving infractions and use of the OPP’s speed sign. Burnstown Road seems to be a problem area for speeding, said McIlquham. “They’re looking at more enforcement on the Burnstown Road,” he said. Mary Campbell agreed speeding is an issue in many areas of the township and asked about the most effective method for

M-B council meets new Pembroke MNR district manager SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

McNab-Braeside council has a better understanding of the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources and its role in the township after Pembroke district manager Rick Watchorn visited council Aug. 2. “We’re very proud of our MNR office here in Pembroke,” said Mayor Mary Cambpell in her introduction of Watchorn, who has been on the job for three and a half months. His visit was a response to the municipality reaching out to improve communication and help answer some of the questions in the township relating to the MNR. Watchorn, born and raised in nearby Carleton Place, shared some of his background, telling council he started out working as a forester, a path that took him across the country as he filled various positions. He returned to Ontario several years ago and worked most recently as a construction (superintendent) for a construction company before moving into government. “It’s extraordinarily interesting to have the perspective…of private versus public. Watchorn explained his office runs a variety of pro-

MNR Pembroke manager Rick Watchhorn grams, first and foremost are the natural resource management programs. Wildlife, fish, aggregates, planning – all fall under the MNR, explained Watchorn. Enforcement, compliance and services like deer and other animal tags for hunters are also done by Pembroke MNR staff. Municipal planning related to wetlands, wildlands, heritage and other features such as Karst or Leda clay, is another area of expertise for MNR staff, said Watchorn. There are still some “front counter” services offered, said Watchorn, but for the most part, provin-

cial services are offered at Service Ontario centres. A big focus for his office is healthy eco-systems – healthy communities. “Healthy ecosystems help us support us for a number of reasons,” said Watchorn. Mayor Campbell asked about conservation authorities. “Most municipalities in southern Ontario have conservation authorities,” she said. “It’s a subject of heated debate in the municipality. We’ve always been proud of ourselves in Renfrew County that we don’t have a conservation authority and MNR takes on that role. Watchorn made reference to his previous post as area manager for the Kemptville district, where a total of five CA s looked after the region, what Watchorn described as a sometimes “complex navigation system.” The one-stop shoppingtype service offered allows the department to assess the programs and their effectiveness, he said. He also encouraged residents to report any concerns to his office. “They love having that information. They really crave that information because it helps them to focus on where there’s a resource use problem,” said Watchorn.

addressing it. Signage and enforcement are among the key factors to stop it, said McIlquham. “After a number of tickets are issued, they really slow down for a long time,” he said. Campbell expressed her disappointment that garbage was not listed as

a focus. “I don’t see garbage anywhere here and dumping is still an issue within the township,” said Campbell. Third on the list of local initiatives was support for programs that address property crime and illegal drug use issues.

County to prepare strategy for abandoned rail bed STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

The demise of Canadian Pacific’s railway line could be to the advantage of Renfrew County tourism and recreation. County officials aren’t divulging the contents of any plan to develop the abandoned railway bed, whose rails and other equipment may be all salvaged within two years. That salvage process began last week. But the county’s recent request to have first right of refusal to purchase the abandoned CP line running from Smiths Falls to Mattawa could result in a trail network that improves all-terrain vehicle, snowmobile and cycling networks in the county. Renfrew County chief administrative officer Jim Hutton announced, during Monday’s public works committee meeting, that the county’s point man on the railway bed will be development and property director Paul Moreau. Earlier this summer, Renfrew County Warden Bob Sweet was part of a trip, from Smiths Falls to Petawawa, that included CP officials and representatives from Renfrew and Lanark counties. The trip was an opportunity to check out the condition of the railway’s infrastructure, including every bridge along the way. “I think it’s very fair to say that Renfrew County, along with Lanark County and (the District) of Nipissing, are interested in talking about a partnership (to buy) what is left.

A salvage car is full of rails taken up near Cobden as part of Canadian Pacific’s closing of the rail line that runs from Mattawa to Smiths Falls. These cars were headed back through Horton Township last Sunday (Aug. 7). “It’s clear that the track is definitely coming out,” said Sweet at Monday’s public works meeting. “It is my understanding, although I haven’t seen any tender, there is going to be 25 miles, or thereabouts, of actual track that’s going to be coming out within Renfrew County (this year), starting somewhere in Renfrew, some going east, some going west.” CP is certainly interested in pursuing talks about selling the right-of-way, added Sweet. He indicated CP officials informed him it may take more than a year to salvage the rails and ties, but closer to a year to complete collection of all electrical goods. Unsurprisingly, Sweet also noted it will take “some funding, some seed money” to buy and develop opportunities along the

same railway bed. He also said it could be a long-drawnout process to acquire the railway bed that’s 185 miles (296 kilometres) long and, in most places, 66 feet (21 metres) wide. Funding sources, according to Renfrew County officials, could include the federal and provincial government, such as the Eastern Ontario Development Fund, Community Futures, and provincial funding for trail development. In 1998, the county passed a policy that calls for abandoned rail corridors within the county to remain in the public realm, noted Hutton. “It’s also a land-use issue, and the development and property department is pretty well positioned to deal with those issues and options,” explained Hutton. “We’re working on a strategy to bring

forward to the development and property committee. That’s going to have to move forward fairly quickly, but we’re going to have to put a little bit of work into it because it’s not something that we approach lightly. It’s a massive, massive project, if it moves forward, of course, with committee and county council approval, and all the way along. “Stay tuned to committee … in terms of what we’re proposing and how we’re going to work with the public, and how we’re going to work with the municipalities …” added Hutton. He admitted purchasing the railway would be “quite a process, but my personal view is this is an opportunity we need to look at.” Hutton described it as “a massive project, but I’m going to be optimistic and say there’s massive opportunity.”

BEWARE TRAINS ON CP TRACK “As RailAmerica’s Ottawa Valley Railway has discontinued service on the CP line between Smiths Falls and Mattawa, Canadian Pacific, on Aug. 4, 2011, began phase one of track removal from a point between Pembroke and Cobden working southeast through Renfrew and Arnprior toward Smiths Falls. The initial process includes track and tie dismantling of approximately 25 miles (40 kilometres) on the line known as the Chalk River subdivision. Thus, in the extreme short term, work trains assigned to track removal may be seen in and through Renfrew and Arnprior on any given day. Other sections of the line are slated for removal later this year and into 2012. Canadian National’s Beachburg subdivision skirts Arnprior to the east crossing into Quebec at Fitzroy Harbour. Just east of the bridge at Fitzroy Harbour, a spur runs west off the main line

at a point known as Nepean Junction. The spur was originally part of CN’s Renfrew subdivision, but is now owned by Nylene Canada for inbound and outbound shipping. The line terminates at the Arnprior plant. Just east of the Nylene facility, another short spur branches southwest crossing Madawaska Boulevard. West of Fitzroy Harbour, the Beachburg Subdivision runs through the Pontiac in Quebec before returning to Ontario at Portage du Fort, about 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Renfrew.

The Canadian Pacific railway is definitely disappearing from Renfrew County, but perhaps not all rail lines in the Valley are history. With parts of the CP rail line from Smiths Falls northwest through Arnprior to the Cobden area in the process of removal, confusion over the removal and retention of specific rail lines in and around Arnprior and Renfrew persists, says a news release from Transport Pontiac-Renfrew The Canadian National and Canadian Pacific corridors are distinct and separate lines, notes TPR. “At this point, there is nothing we’re aware of to encourage retention of the balance of the CP line. I suspect before long all of the (CP) rail will be lifted from just west of Cobden down to Smiths Falls,” says Dave Watt, marketing and communications co-ordinator for JDA Consulting, on behalf of Transport Pontiac-Renfrew. “I believe CP has indicated remaining sections of their track (to Mattawa) will be lifted later next year unless, I suspect, a suitor comes along,” Watts informed the Chronicle-Guide. “But the CN line coming into Pembroke has the better chance of survival via the TPR group. CN has been working hand-in-hand with TPR to help move

that process forward.” Transport Pontiac-Renfrew issued a news release Monday in efforts to clarify the potential future of the railway in the Upper Ottawa Valley and the Pontiac. “At present, both Canadian Pacific and Canadian National have rail infrastructure interests in the upper Ottawa Valley,” begins the news release.

The line then continues through Renfrew County northwest through Beachburg to Pembroke. Transport Pontiac-Renfrew is actively pursuing acquisition of the Beachburg subdivision from CN to ensure service remains in place to a number of clients along the line on both sides of the Ottawa River. When CP’s track removal operations are complete, and assuming TPR acquires the Beachburg subdivision from CN, the only remaining rail into Arnprior proper will be … the spur to Nylene.”

A 140-year-old Pakenham area farm house has been reduced to rubble and the contents of a wheelbarrow. Dave and Mary Needham were awoken shortly before 1 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 5, by a noise in their garage, to find that their farm house, at 1292 Ottawa Rd. 29, just east of Arnprior, had caught fire. They quickly called the fire department, which was an Ottawa call with assistance from Arnprior firefighters, explained Marc Messier from Ottawa Fire Services. When fire crews arrived, the house was fully engulfed in flames. “We had 43 staff and 22 units on site,” Messier said. “Mostly because it’s not a hydrant area, so we needed several tankers to haul in water.” They also needed to bring in extra equipment used to tear down Photos by Marc Clouthier walls in order to gain access to Dave and Mary Needham’s son-in-law, Marc Clouthier, took this dramatic photo of the the entire home.

It’s enough to say the fair is growing The Arnprior Fair may not be the largest in the Ottawa Valley, but it certainly deserves recognition as one that is bouncing back after hard times. During the majority of its 157 years, the fair has fared well. But during the late 1990s, involvement from volunteers and attendance by the public could be said to have waned. We are not interested in exploring the reasons. Suffice to say with Eleanor Closs Murray, Jeff Desarmia, Scott Rancourt and others, the fair is mounting an impressive comeback. And the future appears bright with proactive initiatives such as bringing horse-racing back to the fairgrounds. While the attendance at the Platinum Blonde concert was less than expected, and three out of the four days didn’t experience record turn-outs, other aspects were well done. This year Saturday was very busy and the midway was the biggest in Arnprior history, for instance. A nice way to characterize it. And truthful. Unfortunately, it is untruthful to say the 157th Arnprior Fair is the largest in the Valley, as appears in the Arnprior council minutes, along with other media outlets. The nearby Renfrew Fair runs a day longer and occupies a much larger footprint; the Carp Fair, while technically in the City of Ottawa, is bigger yet. Fairs in Metcalfe and Richmond are also nothing to dismiss. Truth in advertising is where an organization derives much of its credibility. KUDOS TO CARLILE Janet Carlile, curator of the Arnprior and District Museum, has turned a negative into a big plus. Kids are thought to have been messing around at the side of the museum facing the library. Because it is a low visibility area, there was concern serious damage could be done. Besides, it’s an area that is destined for a garden anyway. That’s when Carlile took a bold, impressive move. She had the cannon moved from that location to face traffic at John and Madawaska streets. The cannon is striking and sure to lure more people into the museum. Carlile could have told herself that pointing a cannon is somehow offensive, and found a politically correct spot to bury the artifact. But she didn’t. She opted for the innovative and daring option. Hats off to that. Let’s have more.

LETTERS

Right to protest gone overboard To the editor:

Farmers concerned about actions of SPCA To the editor: In recent weeks I have been approached by Ottawa Valley farmers as to what my thoughts are regarding how the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) has dealt with two area farmers. Local farm papers have given these two farmers a lot of press coverage. As president of the Renfrew County National Farmers Union, I feel I must and should write this letter as my job is to work on behalf of and for the betterment of all family farmers. This issue has touched the heart and soul of many farmers. In fact, many farmers have become more fearful and frustrated with the regulations and treatment imposed by certain officers of the law. From information I have read and received, I wish to outline a littlebackground on the situation of those two farmers involved with the SPCA. In the David Robinson case last December, the SPCA apparently (afterprevious visits) entered their farm without a warrant and ordered the Robinsons to put their heifers back in the barn and later charged them with cruelty to animals. It appears the Robinsons decided to fight back and that resulted in more charges $720,000 in fines, $60,000 for each charge of animal cruelty brought against them. Further to this, I understand that two Dundas County veterinarians later testified that the same cattle were sufficiently cared for, had adequate feed and water. The Iroquois beef farmer, Ralph Hunter, has also been visited by an SPCA officer on numerous occasions and also without warrant and seized dozens of animals belonging to Mr. Hunter, who later apparently never faced any charges with respect to those visits and seizures. In addition, I read on one occasion two SPCA officers without a warrant or consent to enter and with flashlights were found on the Hunter farm in the middle of the night. They left when the Hunters requested them to leave the property.

It started out to be a beautiful morning, but soon turned into a stomach-churning experience. As I was going down Madawaska Boulevard, on my way to work, it was hard not to miss the appalling signs on both sides of the road. Protesters displaying graphic images concerning abortion. I am all for ‘freedom of speech’ and for what you believe in, but displaying coloured pictures of babies on bulletins that are even too graphic for me is truly disgusting. I have two small children and I don’t want them to have to see these horrible pictures when they cross town to go somewhere with their dad. Let alone wanting to have to explain to my kids why there are pictures of babies in different states of dismemberment. How do you explain that to a 3 and ½and 7-year-old child? You can express your beliefs in different ways, and I agree that you have a right, but this is not one of them. I work with children and it is heartwrenching to come into work and see a child upset due to viewing these graphic images. I speak as a parent, that there should be a better way on what message is to be sent across the community. We are all given in this country the right to ‘freedom of speech’ and expression. Though, try presenting it in a tasteful manner and not traumatize today’s generation and scar our children for life.

Continued from Page 8 First, I am not in a position to make an opinion as to what these farmers have done right or wrong. That is up to the courts to decide. • The SPCA has the power to enter on a private property without a warrant and/or the consent of the owner. This is wrong. • An SPCA officer alone can make a judgment call on the health of animals and determine neglect. This is wrong. • In the new Bill 50, the mandatory requirement to have a DFO representative with farm experience accompany the SPCA officer to investigate complaints has been omitted (it was a requirement prior to May 2009). This is wrong. • Victims are treated by the SPCA like a guilty party without being convicted of any charges. This is wrong. In addition the SPCA needs to become more involved in understanding what normal farm prac-

tices have been and are – talk to the neighbours and/or farm organizations in those specific areas. Family farmers in the Ottawa Valley are telling me that they fear what the fall-out could be from these two situations – one being that pressure could come about that all animals must be housed during winter months, while at the same time we know that most farm animals with proper care and feed are much healthier left outdoors. I wish to advise those farmers I have committed myself to work with my 18 executive members to: • discuss this issue with our MP and MPP that this kind of behaviour must stop and that it is detrimental to normal farm practices; • work to amend or revoke the new Bill 50 and that it be mandatory that one or two independent farmers accompany the SPCA officer to investigate those complaints.

Dave Mackay, president Renfrew County National Farmers Union

Continued from front Desarmia explained the two initiatives were put on hold when he went through some serious health issues last winter. But he’s back on track, and so are the projects, he said Friday at the fair. He said horse racing will definitely be starting at the fair grounds next May after an absence of more than a decade. Hand in hand with that project, Hay Solar, in partnership

with the agricultural society, will build a 240-foot barn (up from the 210 feet planned last year) with a large solar panel roof. Desarmia expects ground work will begin this fall, with construction starting in the spring. It should be complete by the time next year’s fair rolls around, he said. Adding the horse barn and horse racing will help the fair expand its activities and could restore it to the longer event it

once was, he noted. The additions will be timely, coming during Arnrprior’s 150th anniversary year. Meanwhile, Reeve Walter Stack was impressed with town staff putting together a booth at the fair. At Monday’s council meeting, Stack, a Legionnaire, also thanked everyone who volunteered at the Legion fundraiser. Coun. Lynn Grinstead, a fair director, thanked everyone who participated in the fair.

I suspect their “honeydew” was more like yellow, almost gold, and there were so many “toxic-dew,” which is why the ants showed no interest in them. I may not have seen ants milking the aphids, but I did see a remarkable event, one almost Biblical in context. I saw a female aphid give birth to a young. Now, this might not seem to be an event deserving of a reference to the Bible, but it is when you learn that the young was produced without the aid of a male’s sperm. Female aphids can produce young through parthenogenesis or “virgin birth.” Parthenogenesis occurs for several generations, all of the aphids being female and wingless. Then a generation of winged aphids is produced, of which some are males. The winged aphids fly off and mate, producing eggs that overwinter usually under tree bark. When I got home I researched the aphids and learned that they were the Oleander Aphid, a non-native species. Studies done in Florida and California revealed that due to the milkweed juice the aphids were indeed chemically armed and that they showed off

this feature through their bright warning colouration. My hunches were right. I hope to head back to the aphids and videotape a virgin birth. Just think of the interest it would generate on U-Tube if I

The Calvary Baptist Church of Arnprior attracted 27 children aged 4 to 11 to its Vacation Bible School in late July. Left, the group with its adult leaders, who include Shirley Martin, Elaine Kuehl, Carol Ann Toman, Natalie Van, Lisa Donaldand Rev. Bruce Donald, along with junior leaders Nathan Toman, Johanna Donald, Maria McGonigal, and Nicki and Laura Jamieson. It was the first summer Bible school the church has run in a while. But the response makes it likely it will be back each year.

A Valley contractor has been jailed for scamming an elderly Ottawa homeowner. The provincial government issued a news release last week reporting that Hubert Belisle, operating as H.B. Expert Pro-Renovations in Renfrew, had pleaded guilty Aug, 3 to engaging in an unfair practice under Ontario’s Consumer Protection Act and was sentenced to 90 days in jail and two years probation. In March 2009, the release says, Belisle approached an 85-year-old homeowner in Ottawa and sold him on various repairs and improvements to his house. Belisle estimated the work

A thief stole a car without plates and tools from a Braeside home overnight Aug. 2. Renfrew OPP report that a garage was entered on Colin Street. After prying open the door, the thief stole some hand tools and the keys for an unplated car in the driveway. The vehicle, a 2001 blue Chrysler Sebring, was then stolen. OPP Constable Jamie Prince is investigating. During the evening hours of Friday Aug. 5, a home on Burnstown Road was broken into. Some time between 6:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m., a thief entered the unlocked home and stole two computers, a Sony Play station, a TV and a set of golf clubs. Prince is investigating.

Over the next few months Belisle talked the homeowner into several other repairs and received more than $18,000 in additional fees – even though the original work was not completed. The homeowner, a Second World War veteran and widower, has lived in the house since 1960 when he and his wife designed and built it. In addition to the jail and probation, Belisle was sentenced to a restitution order of $34,591. Conditions of the probation include forbidding Belisle from:

Teenager gets life for murder A 19-year-old man who fled to Arnprior after the murder and dismemberment of his 15-yearold girl friend two years ago has been sentenced to life in prison. The man, whose identify is being withheld until his appeal period is over because he was 17 at the time of the crime, was given the sentence at the end of a long trial in Sudbury last month. However, he will be able to start applying for parole in seven years. During the past two years he has been in custody, the youth, who had no prior convictions, has earned his high school diploma. Superior Court Justice Robbie Gordon found the accused guilty of second-degree murder and causing an indignity to a human body. His co-accused, Khristopher Lavallee, 30, has not been found guilty of any charges, but he is in custody awaiting trial. Whitney (Dolly) Van Der Wouden was murdered and her body set on fire at a makeshift campsite in the Minnow Lake area of Greater Sudbury on April 27, 2009. Lavallee and the youth then left the Sudbury area by bus and spent about a month in Arnprior. Lavallee got work at an Arnprior area golf course and the youth was making plans to go back to school when Sudbury police tracked them down. They had Arnprior OPP inquire as to the whereabouts of Van Der Wouden, who had been reported missing. The pair fled into the Quebec wilderness and eventually turned themselves in to police.

OPP investigate acts of mischief Police report incidents of mischief are continuing in residential areas of Braeside, Cobden and Renfrew. Flower pots are being moved and tipped over, garden ornaments broken and other inconveniences are being experienced. Police will continue patrols in the known problem areas, and parents are encouraged to speak to their teens about the consequences of being caught trespassing and causing mischief. If you see suspicious activity, call the OPP immediately at 1-888310-1122. Renfrew OPP responded to 11 domestic disputes during the past week. One man was charged with assault and mischief, another was charged with assault and uttering threats, and two females were charged with assault. Renfrew OPP responded to 224 calls for service last week, including 27 motor vehicle collisions and 25 traffic complaints.

Ribs and Rims set for Elgin Street Sept. 1 DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

You won’t be allowed to drive on Elgin Street between Daniel and John streets in Arnprior on Sept. 1, not unless you consider your car a classic or rarity. Ribs and Rims, a first-time event where residents are invited to enjoy local food while voting on Arnprior’s finest vehicle, is coming together thanks to Pierre and Helen Racette. The Our Place in the Prior owners plan to raise funds for the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital through selling “packages” of their popular ribs, along with local produce such as corn. The cost is $10 each. “One hundred per cent of the money raised goes to the hospital,” Helen said. “When we bought the building, we wanted to become part of the community. We wanted to support something downtown, so the hospital seemed like a perfect fit.” The Racettes hope to attract 40 to 50 cars to the event, with the $10 entry fee also going to the hospital. A twist for those with unique vehicles, including motorcycles and trucks, not just classic cars, is that everyone who buys a food package will also get a ballot and the chance to vote for their favourite. The winning vehicle will get dinner for two to Our Place in the Prior. Arnprior council approved closing of Elgin Street between 6:30 and 9 p.m. at Monday’s meeting after seeing letters of support from all affected business owners in the area except one – who was on vacation at the time. Councillors Ted Strike and Dan Lynch said the Ribs and Rims should attract potential customers to the downtown core at a time of day many consider after business hours. “It’s a win-win,” Strike said. Helen agrees that many people believe all downtown businesses shut down in the evening, but her

restaurant is proof to the contrary. She, along with many councillors, encourage other business owners to stay open late on Sept. 1 to attract potential consumers. “It’s meant as a send-off to summer before the long weekend,” Helen said. “We encourage all businesses to stay open late for that one time.” It would prove similar to businesses

staying open for the Santa Parade through town. At a recent business improvement area (BIA) meeting, talk turned to using an empty storefront for a Santa village. The idea is to attract shoppers downtown to meet Santa. To enter a vehicle in the Ribs and Rims, email ribsandrims@ourplaceintheprior. com.

Droeske makes off with strongman win at Arnprior Fair STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Dave Droeske, 22, of Renfrew won the medley to open the Arnprior Fair’s strongman competition, then kept winning. The 240-pound athlete captured all five events in the competition hosted by Ultimate Fitness gyms in Arnprior and Renfrew. His winning score of 45 points came in a gut-wrenching, captivating display of endurance and strength. The host commentator was Paul Vaillancourt, Ontario’s strongest man winner three years running. Organizers included his wife, Sarah Leighton, who’ll compete at the world powerlifting championships in the Czech Republic in November. Sunday’s other strongman events were a 600-pound super yoke walk, a car dead lift, the combined 220-pound farmers walk and 850-pound tire flip, and the Atlas stones medley. Droeske, a 22-year-old mason, dominated the event while taking the victory in stride. “I just basically see myself as a regular joe, a guy who doesn’t plan on going any further (in competition). I just do it for the challenge.” Droeske, who has won a small handful of strongman competitions, continues to train out of Ultimate Fitness. So does Dane Blimkie, 27 of Renfrew who finished second overall. “I would have liked to have come first,” said Blimkie, who equaled his previous best of sec-

ond in a strongman’s competition. It was a fight for third place, as Orleans training partners Dan Mallette and Doug ‘Mad Dog’ Strudwick each scored 29 points. On a tie-breaking format, Mallette took third place as his sixyear-old son, Nathan, looked on from the sidelines with an inflatable Spider-Man won at the fair. Strudwick, who also had family members in the crowd, was third after four events, but slipped to fourth in the Atlas stones finale. The stones, which weigh 205 to 300 pounds, had to be lifted into holding areas around shoulder height. Each lifted four stones, but Strudwick took 51 seconds, to Mallette’s 26 seconds. Blimkie reinforced his secondplace finish by lifting four stones in 34 seconds. Droeske was the only competitor to hoist all five stones. He did so in 33 seconds. The field of nine included fifth-place Rich Machell of Trenton, sixth-place Taylor Wilson of Renfrew and seventh-place Mark Whitman of Arnprior. They posted respective scores of 24, 20.5 and 12 points. Competing in his first strongman event, powerlifter Whitman, 33, said, “It’s certainly different from what I’m used to. It’s not just about strength, but technique.” Angus Cairnie of Renfrew was eighth and Ryan Blimkie, also of Renfrew, placed ninth. Organizers say they hope to return for another strongman’s event at the 2012 Arnrprior Fair.

Mark Whitman of Arnprior steadies himself in the Atlas Stone event en route to finishing seventh in the strongman’s competition.

Big crowd for night of fires, bashing and crashing STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

The Arnprior Fair’s demolition derby last four hours Saturday night, but most of the estimated crowd of 1,500 stayed for all of the bashing and crashing. Moments before the start of the derby, organizer Scott Rancourt presented a photo montage to Monica and Wes Schnob, the wife and son of avid demolition derby participant Bruce Schnob. The montage was presented on behalf of the Arnprior Agricultural Society. Schnob died of liver disease in April at age 56, but he’ll be remembered by many demolition derby drivers and fans. “Bruce is here in spirit, and he always will be,” Monica told the crowd. “He’s been doing it (the derby) for as long as I can remember, until the last couple of years (when he was sick),” she added. Others didn’t forget Bruce Schnob, either. For example, nephew Tyler Baskin painted his No. 69 Cadillac to include the words: In memory of Uncle Bruce. SIX-CYLINDER CLASS The midsize heat one winner was James Haybecker of Arnprior who went on to capture the midsize final. The heat two win went to Arnprior’s Chris Walsh, who finished the night on the sidelines after he suffered a concussion in another heat after his airbag deployed. The winner of heat three for midsize, or sixcylinder, vehicles was Richard Mainprize of Arnprior. The concussed Walsh was replaced in the final by his uncle, Steve McLeod of New Brunswick. The midsize title ended up going to Haybecker. The Arnprior winner, who was second in his heat the previous year, didn’t take extra credit for the victory in his Grand Prix. “Luck, it’s all luck. And help (from my crew),” he maintained. Most fans also stayed for the entire four-hour derby that featured four-, six- and eight-cylinder vehicles in the derby pit. Members of the Arnprior Fire

Department stood by in the event of fires, of which there were several. Win or lose, Haybecker says he just loves doing the demolition derby. “It’s a blast,” said the 23-yearold, who was competing in the derby for the fourth year. His first-prize money was $600, while he also picked up $100 for winning his heat. FOUR-CYLINDER CLASS The mini, or four-cylinder, heat titles went to James Haybecker of Arnprior, Corey Washburn of Arnprior, and veteran and crowd favourite Scott Rancourt of Arnprior. Rancourt was in a dogfight before eliminating defending champion Andrew Normandeau of Arnprior in his heat. Steven Walters of Renfrew also reached the final, after winning the grudge match. Rancourt, with his No. 24 1991 Toyota Camry, won the minifinal. Washburn’s car couldn’t restart, while Rancourt temporarily lost the key to his car, but recovered it to earn the $600 win. EIGHT-CYLINDER ACTION The heat winners in the eightcylinder division were Dan Bayford of Waba and Richard Mainprize. But a very popular victory in the eight-cylinder class went to Arnprior native and Carleton Place resident Randy Haybecker. He only reached the final by driving his No. Z29 to victory in the grudge match (or final qualifier) to win the winner-takes-all prize of $1,100, to the pleasure of such supporters as sponsor Morley Parsons and his sixyear-old daughter, Ashley-Lynn. Haybecker, who’s been doing the fair’s demolition derby for about 20 years, says he has lots of wins in lots of classes, but that this is one of the sweeter ones. He also won, he said, with a “lucky helmet” borrowed from Rob Agnew of Fitzroy Harbour. “This was a tough one,” said Haybecker, whose 1977 Chev was pushed up the wall, but slid back down and back into contention. Monica and Wes Schnob with the photo montage presented to them at the start of Saturday’s Arnprior Demolition Derby in honour of derby enthusiast Bruce Schnob, who died in April.

At camp for the donation are, from left, in front, counsellors Holly Martin and Chelsea Gordon, Renfrew County United Way funds distribution committee chair Cathi Fairfield, Steven Matinlassi, Community Living manager Tina MacLaren, and Joel Raycroft and in front, Micheal Farr, Greg Murdoch, and Lauren Reid.

United Way helps fund summer day camp Renfrew County United Way (RCUW) is continuing its support of the Summer Opportunities Program offered to children and youth with developmental disabilities who live in the southern part of Renfrew County. RCUW’s Funds Distribution Committee has approved a grant of $15,000 from the United Way’s Strategic Priorities Fund to help fund a summer camp sponsored by Community Living Renfrew County South. The annual program supports about 30 children and youth from the Arnprior and Renfrew areas and gives respite to their caregivers. United Way board member for Arnprior and funds distribution committee chairperson, Cathi Fairfield, explained the grant is part of the United Way’s commitment to children and youth at risk in

McEwan

local communities. Under the theme ‘All that children can be’, RCUW is directing significant resources into youth issues as part of its program and funding re-alignment with strategic priorities that communities identified in 2007 during Community Matters’ public consultations. “It is important that our communities get behind the United Way in its efforts to raise funds for these important health and social activities for our children,” said Fairfield. “When funding for these activities is not available from traditional government sources, the community needs to step forward to fill the void. The United Way – thanks to the ongoing generosity of people and businesses in our county – is proud to be a part of efforts to meet some of these high priority needs.”

TOWN OF ARNPRIOR

Source for Sports moves to Renfrew LUCY HASS lucy.hass@metroland.com

Retail and sports are in the Vice family blood. So it’s only fitting that Larry Vice is bringing both together with the relocating of Source for Sports from Arnprior to beside the historic Renfrew post office. Born and raised in Renfrew, Vice has spent his entire career in retail sports. He started with Canadian Tire in Renfrew 1983, then moved to Ottawa’s Collegiate Sports, which later became Sports Experts. In October 2005, he opened Source for Sports in Arnprior. When the lease in that town came up for renewal, the owners decided they wanted to build upon their hockey base and it made sense to expand in Renfrew, a location that didn’t have a sports store. Relocating the store to Renfrew marks a happy homecoming for Vice, whose family boasts a rich history serving Renfrew and area residents. In days gone by, Tibby

Vice operated a drycleaning operation; Bill, a bakery; Michael, a general store; and Larry’s grandfather Alec, a dairy in Renfrew. Frank had a store in Perth. Vice’s partners in the Renfrew Source for Sports operation are Mike Defalco and Mike Grace. The new main street store sells a wide range of sporting goods, from gear for hockey, baseball and soccer, to equipment for invidual sporting pursuits like tennis, golf and running. The store will also specialize in teamware such as uniforms and corporate clothing, with on-site pressing for logos. The 1,900-square-foot store has five employees, although that number will likely rise with the traditional Christmas peak retail traffic. Larry and his wife Mary Ellen (nee Lunney) have four sons: Alec, Greg, Pete and Mike. An official opening celebration is scheduled for this Saturday, Aug. 13.

Carp Farmers’ Market goes all out for Garlic Festival 2011 Oyez! Oyez! Calling all garlic lovers, near and far. Carp Farmers’ Market will be holding its annual Garlic Festival this weekend (Aug. 13-14). Starting Saturday at 8 a.m and Sunday at 10 a.m. (closing at 3 p.m. on both days), the market will once again be showcasing the many faces and features of the ‘stinking rose’. Visitors will be able to browse through the 60plus varieties of garlic featured by 30 growers. They can also enjoy the many other forms of garlic from pickled to

powdered, from salsa to jellies. The growers and producers will complement the market’s regular vendors who also offer garlic along with the wide variety of fresh, local, high quality local produce for which the market is well known. Talks on garlic cultivation and braiding, along with a chance to sample its many varieties and rate the tastiest, and demonstrations on the many culinary applications of spring’s delicacy, the garlic scape have been organized against a background of continuing

entertainment provided by buskers and clowns. The market’s regular food court will be expanded in the interests of maintaining the energy of visitors. “Lots of goodies and plenty of them,” says John Moore of Wolf Grove Garlic, who is heading up this year’s festival. There is free admission and free parking at the Carp Fairgrounds. Meanwhile, at the Perth Fairgrounds, the 14th annual Perth Lions Garlic Festival runs the same two days, Aug. 13 and14.

DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

How fast can one shear a sheep? Why not drop by the Pakenham Fall Fair this Saturday, Aug. 13 and find out. “We have a sheep-shearing demonstration (at 12:30 p.m.) … (and) we’ve been trying to get Ross Creighton out for years,” said Nicole Guthrie, the cultural and community programmer with the Town of Mississippi Mills, about the fair’s newest addition.

Two other new faces who will be front and centre at the fair will be Al and Toby Barratt, who will open this year’s fair and lead off the noon parade. They will be recognized in keeping with the fair’s tradition of putting local farming families in the limelight. “We’ve honoured a lot of the farm community,” said Guthrie. “Al and Toby have put in a lot of hours in to the fair,” as well as with the Pakenham Horse Association. The fair opens with a breakfast from

7 to 9 a.m. at the fairgrounds concession stand. The fair officially opens at noon at the baseball diamond, followed by a parade. There are plenty of activities at the children’s tent beside the baseball diamond for the younger set with a petting farm at 10 a.m., fun and play starting at 11 a.m., frog-jumping competition at 1 p.m. and a teddy bear and stuffed animal competition at 1:30 p.m. The horse show begins at the ball diamond in the park starting at 9:30 a.m., while the more bovine-minded can see

the 4-H calf show at Fred Millar Field at 10 a.m. The horse-skidding event has been moved to noon, and for Guthrie, it is an event not to be missed. “If you’ve not seen a horse skidding (a log), it is well worth the low price of $3,” said Guthrie. The Fall Flower and Vegetable Show will also be held Aug. 12 and 13, hosted by the Horticultural Society.. There will also be competitions for quilting, knitting and crocheting, sewing, arts and crafts, photography, baked goods, pickles and relish, jams and jellies and other foods.
