Two area high schools will be without food and beverage options for at least the first two weeks of September. The Ontario government’s new guidelines are making it difficult for vendors to see a profit, according to Renfrew County District School Board director of education Roger Clarke. The board is in negotiations to secure vendors for Arnprior District High School and Renfrew Collegiate Institute, but doubts cafeterias will be up and running until late September. “There’s not a lot of vendors out there,” Clarke said. “They are grappling with how to make a dollar.” The short timeline is also to blame; the government announced changes in January for this coming school year. The new guidelines mean healthy options in cafeterias and vending machines must replace high-markup items like French fries. To entice potential vendors the board might offer to replace, at its own expenses, deep fryers with Panini presses for example, Clarke explained. But he maintains the idea of healthier options is still a good one for cash-strapped school boards to make. “It’s not inexpensive. We’d need to purchase industrial grade or equivalent equipment,” he said. “It terms of providing healthy, nutritional foods for children – it encourages brain growth – you’d be hard pressed not to say it’s better.”

It was a golden moment along John Street last Saturday morning when the OPP’s performing motorcyclists entertained the White Pine crowd. The Golden Helmets show was among the most anticipated events of the weekend, which eventually fizzled due to high winds.

Hurricane doesn’t dampen festival spirit SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Despite having to wrap things up early on account of Hurricane Irene’s visit on Sunday, organizers of the Arnprior White Pine Festival are thrilled with how the second annual event played out. Mike Marcil, who co-organized the event with the help of Art Smith and Glenn Arthur, explained that Sunday’s cool weather and high winds forced them to close down the event early, before the much-anticipated dragonboat races started a second heat.

(Medals went to all who participated in only preliminary race.) That setback, however, couldn’t spoil the overall success of the event. “It was absolutely fabulous,” said Marcil. He agrees with Smith that likely more than 10,000 people were at the festival over the course of the weekend. “We at least doubled last year’s attendance,” said Marcil. “It was just a fabulous, fabulous turnout.” See ‘WHITE PINE’ page 38

White Lake driver killed near Waba

Healthy foods creates opportunity for vendor Continued from front He also said there are market pressures outside the school for healthy alternatives – pointing to McDonald’s offering apple slices in Kids’ Meals. Still, when a school like Arnprior’s has a convenience store across the street selling pizzas and pop, Clarke admits students might keep eating less healthy.

“The Gord’s (convenience stores) of the world will continue to find a niche,” he said. “We will not be able to sell that kind of food in our schools. But it’s not a question of competition. It’s a question of education.” While vegetarians insist anyone can eat for less by being creative with beans and other healthy foods, Clarke said it could prove a challenge for rural kids

to take a liking to things like hummus. However, he wonders if it won’t open a niche for a new generation of vendors. “There’s a cultural shift to wraps and salads that might not work right away in Arnprior,” he said. “It maybe will create new opportunities down the road for others that haven’t thought of vending at schools.”

It was a first for the Town of Arnprior and a big step towards recognizing the vital role Arnprior’s volunteer fire department plays in keeping the community safe. Eleven new members of the department were honoured at a graduation event held Wednesday, Aug. 24, at the fire hall. The firefighters received their helmets, complete with their identification number, as a welcome to the department, says fire Chief John Okum. “It’s the first time Arnprior’s done this,” says Okum, who says it is a way to recognize the significant contribution the group has made, now that they have each completed their oneyear probation period. “It’s the next step to becoming a permanent volunteer.” The ceremony raises awareness about the department, too, says the

chief. “The community might not realize the Arnprior Fire Department consists of all volunteers,” says Okum, who is the lone full-time member. The probation period in the past was six months, but since volunteers are completing their training and attending fire calls in their free time, a one-year duration allows more time for firefighters to gain experience. Deputy Chief Peter Boyce worked closely with the 11 new recruits to help them complete the more critical components of the Ontario firefighting curriculum. “They all did very well,” says Okum. And while the firefighters are now permanent members, the education isn’t over. “This does not end their learning, however,” says Okum. “Training continues for the duration of their careers.” In his address, Okum made note that

the graduates have and will continue to commit their time and efforts and talents in the face of the considerable risks associated with the job. “Between juggling work responsibilities, family commitments, and social activities, firefighters must commit to timely training, public education, fire prevention, as well as emergency responses. Today’s firefighters don’t just fight fires, they are now expected to provide competency based responses to various other incident types,” he said. Accidents, rescues, disasters - all require members to leave their own families and put themselves at risk. “You carry the title of ‘volunteer’ firefighter...Simply put, you are not a paid salary for your services. You are, however, ‘professionals.’ The services you provide are no different than those of a career firefighter,” Okum told the group. About 32 volunteers make up the department, with members typically

involved in training sessions once a week. The position is volunteer, but firefighters are paid an annual honorarium based on the number of fire calls they attend, explained Okum. Arnprior Coun. Dan Lynch addressed the firefighters on behalf of Mayor David Reid, who could not attend. Deputy Chief Boyce and Assistant Deputy Chief Brian Jahn also offered remarks. Firefighters recognized were: Steve Armstrong, Andy Buckley, Mark Hiller, Cory Nicholas, Matthew Perry, Jeff Phillips, Kevin Pierce, Martin Stockton, Stephen Styles, Rod Vallier and Jamie Van’Tslot.

Stolen Quebec boats recovered in town Sunday DEREK DUNN

derek.dunn@metroland.com

An unusual high-speed boat chase on the Ottawa River Sunday morning could have been something out of a Miami Vice episode, minus the loafers and pet crocodile. The Pontiac detachment of the Quebec police force were notified at about 9:30 a.m. that a caller was in pursuit of two males on what was suspected as a stolen boat. The police marine unit was dispatched and caught up to the two, who attempted escape on a small island near Arnprior often referred to as Lighthouse Island. One was arrested, but the other got away. He is well known to authorities

and is expected to be arrested soon. The 25-foot boat is registered to an owner in Bristol, Que. SECOND BOAT THEFT Meanwhile, on the same morning, a second boat was found submerged with no occupants near the McLean Park shoreline. Quebec police suspect the same two males were involved and could face a second set of charges. The boat was towed to the Arnprior marina by the local fire rescue unit and removed from the water. A number of Arnprior firefighters and trucks, along with OPP and Quebec police were on hand at the marina, site of the White Pine Festival’s dragonboat races.

A 38-year-old Arnprior male was charged with public nudity and transported to Arnprior hospital where he was treated and released. ASSAULT WITH WEAPON Arnprior OPP members investigated three assault complaints. Const. Raul Pasta and Sgt.

As a result of their investigation, a 27-year-old Arnprior female has been charged with assault. DRUG CHARGES Const. Paterson and Const. Richardson were conducting a RIDE check Aug. 13 at

White Lake Road. Upon checking a vehicle, a quantity of marijuana was located within the vehicle. As a result of their investigation, a 40year-old Carleton Place male has been charged with two counts of possession of marijuana contrary to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Sgt. Stephan Neufeld of OPP Highway Safety Division was conducting a RIDE check on Daniel Street within the town of Arnprior.

Manufacturer secures $1M contract AUCTION SALE derek.dunn@metroland.com

One of Arnprior’s largest employers has bounced back from uncertainty to land a major contract. Pacific Safety Products, a leading North American manufacturer of advanced armour solutions, has been awarded up to a $1-million contract from Public Works and Government Services Canada. The company will supply soft body armour – bullet proof vests - and carrier products to the RCMP. The contract is for the next four years, subject to the number of units actually ordered, and will be manufactured at the company’s Arnprior facility. “This award confirms that PSP remains a trusted supplier to the RCMP of protective armour solutions for law enforcement,” stated Doug Lucky,

CEO. “PSP is uniquely positioned to understand the challenges for ensuring compliance to demanding ballistic and material specifications to guarantee both durability and life saving performance in the field.”

“This is great news for jobs in Arnprior. Jobs are important to the prosperity of the town, so this is a positive news story.” Doug Lucky He added that it will also protect jobs at the 65-person plant. “This is great news for jobs in Arn-

prior,” he said. “Jobs are important to the prosperity of the town, so this is a positive news story.” The company also won a $500,000 contract in June with the Department of National Defence (DND). Lucky said Pacific Safety Products is the “incumbent” maker when it comes to police and DND. However, he’s keen to be supplier to more municipal and provincial forces in Canada. “We’re working to grow principally the domestic markets,” he said. “We are a North American company run out of Arnprior.” However, the company has been under a “forbearance” from a Canadian bank for a few months now. It is set to end Aug. 31. It’s net losses were at $140,687 (0.2 cents per share) in the third quarter. It was at $87,378 (0.3 cents per share) in 2010. Lucky said it is time to move on. “We’re all about the future.”

Eileen Currie, Betty Fox remembered at this year’s run SHERRY HAAIMA sherry.haaima@metroland.com

One of the 2010 Arnprior Terry Fox Run Terry’s Team members, along with Terry’s mother Betty, will be remembered at this year’s event. Coming up on Sunday, Sept. 18, the event is being dedicated to run organizer Rita Cloutier’s sister, Eileen Currie, who lost her battle with cancer earlier this year. Cloutier said she will keep her sister’s memory close as this year’s run rolls around. Even as she battled cancer for the second time, her sister kept up her spirits and brightened the lives of those around her. Betty Fox passed away June 17 and Cloutier said she was saddened to learn of her passing. The long-time local run organizer

EILEEN CURRIE said she had sent a letter to Fox earlier this year and was concerned when she received no response. “Betty was the type to always answer,” she said.

When she learned of the death, she remembered Fox as a strong woman who was a joy to be around. “She certainly could be proud of probably the greatest Canadian hero there ever was,” said Cloutier. Cloutier always felt a special bond with Betty Fox, with her own son born the same year as Terry and getting to know the straight-talking matriarch through her work with the Terry Fox Run and at lunch she hosted for Fox and the community about five years ago. Cloutier encourages everyone to come out and get involved, stressing that there is no distance requirement – even one walk around the track or a small donation will make a difference. The Terry Fox Run starts at 1 p.m. at the Arnprior Fairgrounds. Pledge sheets are available at various local businesses.

Two-year old case a drowning DEREK DUNN Derek.dunn@metroland.com

OPP confirmed that a woman who died two years ago last week was not victim of foul play. Sandra Paulen, 54, was found dead Aug. 24, 2009 in the Ottawa River. Police did not suspect foul play at the time, but waited for post mortem results to confirm it.

DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

About 10 residents were on hand at Monday’s Arnprior council meeting to witness the public meeting over the proposed 331-unit subdivision behind A.J. Charbonneau Public School. The plan is proceeding with few hurdles for developer Vince Campanale of Campanale Homes, who is asking for minor zoning changes to accommodate smaller yards. The plan could see another about 800 people move to the town of just over 7,500. One Ida Street homeowner was concerned the cul de sac would be removed and vehicles permitted to enter and exit along her road. Town planner Robin Smith said the only points of entry and exit would be along Cranston and Edey streets, and Baskin Drive. The homeowner also said construction work has been intrusive for the three years her family has lived in their home. She wanted a timeline for when work would be done. Smith said her area would likely be done first, but didn’t have specifics at the meeting. Another resident living nearby said blueprints should have been mailed out to all residents in the area, something he said happened for past development proposals. He also had concerns about the length and width of the stormwater catchment area and why it appears where

COUNCILLORS’ PAY The mayor and council will get a 2.5 per cent cost of living increase. So will other non-unionized employees at Town Hall. That puts the mayor’s pay at $25,367.24 and reeve and councillors’ at $12,683.62. FLOODING NEAR LCBO Another stormwater issue arose when an outside consultant tabled a study of Campbell Creek before council. The creek meanders behind the Arnprior Shopping Centre, down behind the LCBO and eventually empties into the Madawaska River. The consultant, Stantec Consulting, was hired to recommend solutions to water buildup behind the LCBO. However, much of the consultant’s presentation talked about building a quasipark with a pedestrian crossing over the creek between Allan Drive and the mall. Council rejected a staff recommendation to spend $37,000 on further exploring the idea, which has been proposed by at least one service group in the community.

BENCHES ON DANIEL Two benches will be moved to just above the hill on Daniel Street after seniors said they were having a tough time reaching businesses at the Arnprior Shopping Centre and elsewhere. One concrete bench will be taken from in front of the RBC and another from a remote location in Caruso Park and placed on either side of Daniel Street. Economic development officer Erin Clarke was praised by Reeve Walter Stack for finding a quick, affordable response. It shouldn’t cost more than $500 – cement pads off the sidewalk and garbage cans will also be included – and the benches could be there year round. One will be near the Arnprior Chiropractic Health Centre and the other on the grassy part in front of Canadian Tire. The locations could be moved next year, if necessary.

HIGHWAY SIGNS Signs promoting Arnprior business areas will be placed along Highway 417. The westbound traffic will have a sign guiding travellers down Madawaska Boulevard. Eastbound traffic will see the same directing travellers down White Lake Road. Reid would like to see the name Daniel Street extend through the overpass to reach the town limits. The name White Lake Road would then start at the Township of McNab-Braeside’s border. Stack said county staff is working on synchronizing the six sets of traffic lights within the first two kilometres near Arnprior’s new overpass.

When asked about answers to the flooding, council was told a larger culvert was needed near the LCBO but that it might result in another blockage closer to the Madawaska River. The study cost $123,000. “At this point we need to fix the problems we have,” Mayor David Reid said. “It’s nice to see a park, but the problem area is down by the LCBO. If we redirect funds, that’s where it should be.”

Speak up and speak often That headline is great advice from the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, (OFA). Found in an OFA press release about what the agricultural sector should be doing to ensure they do not get left behind during this coming provincial election, the slogan is about as basic as you can get. Citing, that on the one hand, the agricultural sector is manned by only 1 per cent of Ontario’s population yet generates more than 700,000 jobs and contributes $33 billion to the provincial economy, it is an industry that has to be paid attention to. According to the OFA, politicians should be dealing with five key election issues that have been identified by the organization’s policy advisory council as having an impact on the agricultural sector. They are: environmental stewardship, rural infrastructure, energy policies, risk management programs and regulatory reform. All of the issues are as familiar to urban voters as to rural ones. The only addition could be more efficient and transparent government. While the populations of some far away countries have to find a gun to make sure their voices are heard all we have to do is speak up. Like the song says, you do not always get what you want but you just might get what you need. First you have to ask for it. There is a chance that this time around the average voter will see through all of the slick marketing and political framing that has given politics and politicians a bad name. If the questions that are asked are clear and meaningful then the answers whenever possible should be the same. Let’s see what happens this time. There will be a full slate of candidates made up of a few excellent incumbents and some interesting newcomers. With the dire predictions about the state of the national and provincial economy ringing in our ears, do not expect too much vote buying to go on. This election may be all about keeping the status quo for a few more years until a more stable global economic landscape appears. The antidote to an election that changes nothing but affects everything, is when voters take the time to ask questions. All of the candidates are ready and able to answer just about anything you could ask. With any luck we will not have read between the lines to see who our next group of leaders should be.

Quarry residents tell their stories

White Pine was better than great To the editor: To say our second annual White Pine Festival was great would be untruthful - it was the best! Arnprior, you done yourself proud. From the moment the doors opened at the Legion to allow the OPP Golden Helmets in for an early breakfast before they started their precision ride on John Street until the last song was sung by The Countrymen there was nothing but a festive feeling downtown on Saturday that I have never seen happening in many years. My partners Mike and Glenn and I would have been very happy to see what was accomplished on Saturday, happen within four to five years. The weather was madeto-order and everything just went over super. Sunday was a little different. Due to our friendly hurricane weather from our neighbors down south of us we had to close the festival being held at Robert Simpson Park, about 1 p.m. for what we considered safety reasons. Cooler weather and high winds were causing havoc with the dragon boat races, vendors tents up in the park as well as the entertainment on the stage. Even at that we had a rather large turnout. Overall for the two days with all the great vendors, interesting

events, great music and what we estimate for the two day event. About 11,000 spectators made this weekend something to stand up and say I’m from Arnprior and proud of it; come out to next year’s festival and see why. There were so many great people involved with this year’s festival - all vendors, events, entertainment and those involved I will not attempt to name you all as I would miss many of you. All of you know who you are. I would like to thank one of the reasons we were so successful. It was because of great local media. Thank you Arnprior ChronicleGuide, EMC, Heritage Radio, MyFM, and O’Brien Theatre. You are the best and it would be an honour to make this festival grow together, and I’m sure we will. We would also like to thank all of our great sponsors. Again we will not list all of you as we would surely miss someone (all the sponsors are listed on our website). Without you we would not have been able to make this the festival it was. You are the one who allow us to make this an exciting, enjoyable weekend. You have contributed in so many ways and for that you deserve our up most thanks. See ‘THANKS’ PAGE 9

To the editor: If you had been sitting in Pembroke Superior Court, room 6, last week you would have heard some very compelling testimony. Eleven residents of the Braeside Ridge told the court how their lives had been affected by the ‘temporary’ asphalt plant in the Miller Braeside Quarry. You will notice that I highlighted the word ‘temporary’. The Aggregate Resources Act allows a construction company to place a ‘temporary’ asphalt plant in licensed quarry for local road construction for a period of up to one year. But there is nothing to stop a company putting it in that location for one year, taking it out for a short period, then bringing it right back in for another year. This Braeside plant has been here 2009, 2010, 2011. Eleven residents testified under oath how their lives had been changed, how disruptions and anxiety had replaced the simple pleasures of country living. You would have heard a carefully controlled, but undeniable current of anger. The anger of shattered dreams of one young couple who purchased a rural home to raise a large family in a safe and quiet environment, only to find that asphalt emissions caused migraine headaches, making it impossible to go outside or open a window. You would have heard a young father who had to bring his children inside to escape emissions, even though their backyard was usually a magical place for children to play. Or the young mother who made the choice with her husband to try to sell their dream home because, with her degree in molecular biology, she knew all too well the potential impact those emissions could have on the health of her children. Or how people were woken early by the sound like that of a jet engine right outside their bedroom window, or the man who couldn’t get to sleep after having endured the noise and odour all day; he simply couldn’t bear the continual hum of machinery all night. Or the anxiety that causes insomnia, knowing the ‘soot’ in the air that covers every surface of the house, may contain known cancer-causing chemicals, and knowing that ‘soot’ is inside your lungs. Simple pleasures gone, simple pleasures stolen…..eating a strawberry from the garden, enjoying a barbecue with friends in the backyard.

midway. So I accept her interpretation. She even educated me more by stating that places like Carp, Metcalfe or Richmond are not within the Ottawa Valley. That came as a complete surprise to me because all of life I believed that being a native of the City of Ottawa made me a person who originated from the Ottawa Valley. But what really perplexes me is her interpretation of what and where the Ottawa Valley is. I have always believed that what is known as the Ottawa Valley comprises some 6 million acres of land, or to use metric measurements, 2.4 million hectares. It used to be an area that followed the boundary between Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec along the Ottawa River. It used to be the geographic transitional zone between the Saint Lawrence Lowlands and the Canadian Shield. The Ottawa Valley used to have a population around 1.4 million people

and it used to have communities within it like the City of Ottawa, Mattawa, Shawville, Rockland, Hawkesbury, and, believe it or not, Rigaud, Quebec just west of Montreal. I say used to, because Ms. Grinstead has just re-educated me as to where the Ottawa Valley actually is. Ms. Grinstead said that “Truthfulness in advertising is where an organization derives much of its credibility.” She may be referring to this newspaper or even town council per se. I don’t really know. But her interpretation must be the ‘truth’ as she sees. But I really think she meant the division between what is sometimes referred to as the Upper Ottawa Valley and the Lower Ottawa Valley. She should have been more accurate so people like me don’t get confused, befuddled, or otherwise seen to be misinformed as she attempts to re-educate us. Thomas Charbonneau Arnprior

Compelling testimony at quarry trial Continued from page 8 Maybe a dip in a swimming pool on a hot summer day, practicing golf shots, opening a window to hear the sounds of nature or a cooling breath of fresh air. The most compelling testi-

mony came from a young woman trying to recover from cancer surgery, unable to sleep or even rest because of the noise, who couldn’t try to recoup her critically low levels of Vitamin D by lying on her deck because she couldn’t tolerate the odour or noise; pleading with a Ministry of the Environment official who was monitoring the situation on the road but refused to come into her backyard where the sound was so much worse. Or pleading with the company to ‘just take it away’.

are in asphalt emissions, stating clearing that these could cause the physical symptoms of the plaintiffs; the nausea, migraines, irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, shortness of breath, anxiety, etc. Over and over you would have heard people testify that their lives had been stolen, stolen for the profit of a private multinational company. This week the court will hear from the company and their experts and you will hear how the Ministry of the Environment let this happen. Norma Moore Braeside

Just where is the Ottawa Valley? To the editor: Re: Rides made Arnprior ‘largest’ fair, Chronicle-Guide issue of Aug. 18. I want to thank council member Ms. Lynn Grinstead for re-educating me via her letter-to-the-editor in the recent edition of the Chronicle-Guide. I had always thought county or municipal ‘fairs’ were events where people gathered to sell various goods ... competitive venues for livestock display, household crafts, manufactured goods, and, of course, amusement. I really didn’t think that fairs were strictly places for midway rides. So, I didn’t measure the size of a fair by the number of merry-gorounds, etc. that the midway might have. I just didn’t. So when Ms. Grinstead corrected people like me in her letter, I decided to take a straw poll of some folks around here, and lo and behold they shared Ms. Grinstead’s interpretation about what a fair is and the ‘size’ of the Arnprior fair as being the biggest in the Ottawa Valley because of its

Quarry opponents hammer away at ministry official’s credibility DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

The woes of residents near the Braeside quarry would be few or none at all if a civil servant had behaved professionally and impartially, according to the lawyer leading a civil lawsuit against construction giant Miller Group. On day seven of a 10-day court case in Pembroke, lawyer Linda McCaffrey – representing nine residents living near the quarry – pursued a line of questioning that hammered away at Ministry of Environment staffer Brad Eckert’s credibility as a witness called by Miller. She said he ought to have known about a document giving him power to prevent Miller from setting up the quarry operation in the first place. The document stipulates that an operation must be 300 metres – border to border – with residences. Instead, Eckert worked with the rule that it need be only 60 metres, with Miller’s operation actually at 260 metres. Eckert shot back by saying the document is used by the ministry’s planning branch, not by his approvals branch. He admitted to not knowing about it until residents provided him with a copy. The residents are suing for $25,000, claiming noise and odour problems have interfered with their quality of life. McCaffrey also questioned Eckert’s impartiality when he and a ministry lawyer attended a private meeting with Miller Group and its lawyers in early August. He also provided information at the time to the company; it should have been shared with the other side, she said. “I worked 27 years with the Ontario gov-

ernment and you always invited all sides; that’s how you deal fairly,” McCaffery said. McCaffrey then said Eckert had the power to compel Miller to take measures to reduce noise and odours, but opted not to do so. The latter said it is standard practice to have companies offer solutions. However, for the most part his onsite inspections showed the company was acting appropriately, he said, even voluntarily making changes to appease complainants’ concerns. MILLER BOSS ON STAND Earlier Tuesday morning, Miller official Tom Jones was cross examined by McCaffrey. He was forced to admit the company did not provide to the court original logbooks of when trucks came and left the quarry. Instead the company provided a computer printout, something McCaffrey said could have deleted times beyond normal working hours. “I’ve heard the term ‘garbage in, garbage out,’” Jones said. “So you can’t tell us about the veracity of the data,” McCaffrey said. “No. I’m relying on others,” Jones replied. He insisted the company has always done what it is allowed to do, adding that it opened only once on a Saturday. And that was done because the Ministry of Transportation forced it to provide asphalt to head off safety concerns at a road reconstruction project. The two sides are expected to wrap up Friday, with the judge’s decision to follow on Monday or later.

Craig Rodwell polishes his 1956 Austin Healey 100M at the Arnprior Car and Truck Show during the White Pine Festival Sunday.

Car show brings back memories It was almost like Old Home Week for Craig Rodwell. Although his has lived much of his life in North Bay, Rodwell is a former Arnprior resident. “I lived in Arnprior in the (19)50s,” Rodwell said. “Matter of fact, I’m a friend of the Chronicle on Facebook.” Rodwell was at the White Pine Festival Sunday where he displayed his 1956 Austin Healey 100M in the car and truck show at Robert Simpson Park. Austin Healey cars made an impact for racing purposes in the 1950s. An Austin Healey 100 could easily reach 100 mph and beyond when it was launched in 1952, hence its name. A special Le Mans package was offered for the 100 road car by the mid-1950s, and those cars were refereed to as the 100M. Rodwell has been the proud owner of his 100M for 25 years. “I bought it in 1986, in mid-August actually,” he recalled. “I’ve got to fix it up,” he added. “One thing the car needs is a new paint job.” Rodwell’s 100M could be seen in the area more often. “I’m going to the car show in Renfrew in a couple of weeks,” he said. “My wife and I are both reAsk us about printing & designing your

Greg Palubiskie of Arnprior claimed the toonie draw win. The Prior Chest Nuts displayed Kahlua, their dragonboat during White Pine festivities on John Street Saturday, and were entered in the town’s first dragonboat races at Robert Simpson Park Sunday.

Vintage aircraft trainers of the Second World War era will visit the Arnprior Airport Sept. 3. to commemorate the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP). The visiting aircraft, owned and operated by Vintage Wings of Canada, include the Fleet Finch, Fleet Cornell and Boeing Stearman and are part of the Yellow Wings Tour that has been touring across Canada making stops at various aerodromes that once served as a BCATP training school or station. The commemorative tour began in early June and is designed to bring the stories of the BCATP to Canadians to pay tribute to an extraordinary period in our nation’s rich aviation history. “The plan was a massive wartime undertaking in which approximately 210,000 aircrew were trained from 1940 - 1944 on Canadian soil,” said Rob Fleck. “These trainers have been proudly showcased from as far west as British Columbia and will now tour throughout Ontario where many aerodromes played a pivotal role in preparing the commonwealth nations for war.” Vintage Wing’s mission is to commemo-

rate military veterans and to pay homage to the contribution these men and women made during the Second World War, many of whom paid the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom Canadians enjoy today. Keeping alive Canada’s aviation heritage through the Yellow Wings Tour allows Vintage Wings to educate Canadians and to inspire younger generations in the pursuit their dreams. Vintage Wings wishes to share the experience of flight in one of these unique vintage trainers through a sponsored ride program whereby anyone from the general public can join to become a member of the organization and sponsor a flight that can be enjoyed or be donated to a friend, family member or even a WWII veteran. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 3. Rain date is Sept. 4. Free hot dogs and water will be offered to visitors from noon to 1 p.m. A full schedule of dates and locations of the Yellow Wings Tour is available in the website at www.yellowwings.ca. To enrol in the sponsored ride program, visit the main website www.vintagewings. ca and click on membership.

Make a difference in a little girl’s life Arnprior’s Community of Girl Guides Canada is looking for new leaders for September. Do you have a few hours per week to spare from September through May? Do you enjoy working with girls ages five to 15? Candidates could be: Moms of girls in the program, university students looking for volunteer experience on their resume, women 18 years or older in the area, or someone newly retired who wants to still participate in the community. This is a great way to make lifelong friendships with other leaders. Although all units currently have leaders, we are looking for increased shared leadership and providing training and mentoring for our future leaders. Volunteering with Girl Guides is a rewarding way to help girls or young women develop the best within themselves. Guiding is a chance to make a difference in the lives of girls and other women. Guiding helps girls develop: team work, respect, responsibility, independence, service, kindness and best of all to have fun. Adult members provide mentorship and act as role models, and show girls and young women that their potential is limitless. Girl Guides of Canada is the largest organization for girls and women in Canada, with almost 135,000 members. Guiding has been a part of Canada for the past 100 years. It is a worldwide movement. Guiding is available to the following groups: Sparks 5-6 years, Brownies 7-8 years,

Guides 9-11 years, Pathfinders 12- 15 and Rangers 15 -17. Guiding provides opportunities for fun, friendship and adventures. When you get involved in Guiding you are not alone. You are provided with training, resources and support in a variety of ways to make you feel welcome, oriented and prepared. You will have a personal contact so that all of your questions, concerns and comments will be answered to give you the best starting point. Guider Jane Peters has been a leader in Arnprior for almost 20 years. She decided to volunteer for many reasons. As a child she had been a Brownie and Girl Guide and remembered with fondness the fun she had and the leaders she admired. She thought she could “pay it back” by being a leader herself. She initially volunteered to help with her daughters’ units and stayed while volunteering for something she believes in. She has stretched her outdoor experiences, trying canoeing, backpacking, cooking on stoves and over fires. She has had the chance to make new friends, work with terrific girls, do tons of crafts, re-learn how to play and to be creative. “Volunteering has given me back much more than I have given.” Registration is on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Arnprior Mall by Reitman’s from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For further information about becoming a leader, or registering your daughter, please contact Jane Peters at 613 623-6019.

Horses and riders shine at Rising Star JULIE SKARICA JCS Stables

The Rising Star Series of three horse show clinics held its second horse show clinic of the 2011 season on Saturday, Aug. 20 at JCS Stables just outside of Arnprior. It proved to be a gorgeous day with some sun, a beautiful breeze and fortunately, the rain held off long enough to finish the clinic. Competitors, coaches and spectators gained knowledge through comments and evaluations from hunter/jumper judge Kitty Bowland of Ottawa. There are a lot of individuals responsible for bringing these horse show clinics together but the participants are the most important. We also want to thank the generosity of our sponsors and the numerous volunteers who help to provide for a safe, funfilled and exciting day.

What to do with Arnprior’s town hall has become a pressing issue now that a federal grant for about $2 mil-

lion was rejected. Costly upgrades to the current building – including provincially mandated wheelchair accessibility work – has staff working on recommendations for what should be done next.

At Monday’s council meeting a letter from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada called the grant request “sound” but that “as funds are limited, it is not possible to fund all projects that meet the eligibility crite-

School buses returning Sept. 6 Once again, the time has come for motorists to be on the look out for the region’s youth as students head back to school. The Ontario Provincial Police remind everyone that school buses are back in action starting Sept. 6. OPP officers will be out ensuring motorists are reminded of the rules of the road in regards to school buses, and pedestrians. Section 175(11) of the Highway Traffic Act states: “Every driver or street car operator, when meeting on a high-

way, other than a highway with a median strip, a stopped school bus that has its overhead red signal-lights flashing, shall stop before reaching the bus and shall not proceed until the bus moves or the overhead red signal-lights have stopped flashing.” R.S.O. 1990. The fine for failing to stop for a school bus with lights flashing is $400, accompanied by a victim fine surcharge. Many children walk to school and motorists should beware of the increased pedestrian traffic around local schools, as children make their way

for their first exciting day. Reduced speeds in some school zones will again be in affect, so beware, police will be watching. Please also be aware that when you are charged with certain offences, including speeding, the fines are increased, and in some cases doubled, in Community Safety Zones. A community safety zone is any areas with signs near schools, daycares or any other designated area. “Let’s make it a safe school year,” urges the OPP.

ria.” The town was hoping the federal government would chip in 75 per cent of a $2.8-million grant for the work. “We weren’t the lucky ones to receive it,” Mayor David Reid said. CAO Larry Donaldson said staff will need direction on where to go from here: make the necessary repairs to the aging building; lease a new location; build anew; or other options. He noted the current town hall has deficiencies. Donaldson suggested a committee be formed soon to deal with it. At the Sept. 12 meeting he will suggest a plan for starting the committee.

#4063 Kalla

#4101 Charlie

You can see sweet Kalla for yourself at the Pet Valu in Renfrew. The tiny, spayed kitty is just under a year old and has already been through quite a bit. She was left at the shelter door in a cage with her three kittens and is now ready to find a loving new home of her own. Kalla is very quiet, enjoys attention and is affectionate. She is good with other cats and would be gentle with children. She will make a wonderful companion in her new home.

Shelter staff members are so hoping to find Charlie a loving home, they will waive the adoption fee for the right owner. The 10-12-year-old Rottweiler/Shepherd mix was found in Burnstown and never claimed. He is looking for a retirement home where he can quietly live out the rest of his life. He does have some arthritis but enjoys going for short walks. He is also partially deaf but likes to be petted and loves treats. He is housebroken and good in his crate. Charlie is not fond of other dogs and would be best suited where he is the only pet. He is quiet, enjoys laying in the sunshine and watching all that is happening around him. If you have room in your heart or home for this special senior boy, please come and meet him.

Supplies the shelter needs: Non-clumping cat litter (desperately), dry and canned kitten food, dry and canned cat food bleach. You can call the Arnprior and District Humane Society at 613-623-0916 between noon and 5 p.m Monday to Saturday or visit www.arnpriorhumanesociety.ca

Catch Night Fever

Night fever, from Canada, will take you back to the sounds and the look of one of the greatest pop bands in history, the Bee Gees. Their musical journey travels five decades with over 30 hit songs. Night Fever performs all the hits from the early years to the disco era, from To Love Somebody and Jive Talking to You Should Be Dancing and Stayin’ Alive. One website says the close high harmonies of brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb have made the Bee Gees one of the most impossible attractions in music to launch a tribute to... until Night Fever. “The vocal match of this tribute band creates an eerie sense of seeing the Gibb brothers in concert. Night Fever is the largest production of the Bee Gees in the world,” the site says. The all-Canadian cast has been touring worldwide for the past 10 years, recreating the look and sound of the Bee Gees.

Consummate entertainer Frank Chiarelli could be described as the consummate entertainer. His career spans over 40 years, performing on cruise ships, and at resorts and night clubs in every major capital of the world. Some of Chiarelli’s favourite years in entertaining were the late-1960s with the resurgence of the five-part-harmony groups such as The Beach Boys, The Eagles, The Lettermen, The Tokens and, of course, The 4 Seasons. Chiarelli went on to front well known bands in New York City such as The Freethinkers, The Rocking Royals and The Entertainers who did a guest Thursday night the Bee Gees tribute band Night Fever hits the stage, along with Frankie Valli tribute artist Frank Chiarelli. appearance on the Mike Douglas Show.

For Ruttan, live performance “completes the circle” Deric Ruttan was raised just outside Bracebridge, on land where his greatgrandfather made moonshine in the 1930s. Taking his cues from musical heroes like Steve Earle, he moved to Nashville and spent seven years ‘in the trenches’ in the country music capital of the world, struggling to make a name for himself. Eventually he signed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, and soon after inked a recording contract with Disney’s Lyric Street Records. When the album was released in Canada, the CD yielded five top-10 singles, including the hits When You Come Around, Shine, and Take The Wheel, and earned him a Best Album nomination at the 2004 Canadian Country Music Awards. Male Vocalist and Rising Star nominations followed, as did the Grand Ol’ Opry appearances, and a high-profile national tour. In 2004 he was named Best New Solo Country Artist at the Canadian Radio Music Awards. Stateside though, Ruttan’s artist success was about to be eclipsed by his success as a songwriter. In 2003, just as his first single When You Come Around was released, he celebrated his first No. 1 as a songwriter when friend and collaborator Dierks Bentley took the Ruttan/Bentley/Brett Beavers co-write What Was I Thinkin’ to the top of the charts in the U.S. Over the course of touring his First

Time In A Long Time album in 2008 and 2009, Ruttan and his band developed a reputation for putting on high-energy shows. How his songs translate to a live audience is important to Ruttan. “I’ve played more in the last year-anda-half than I played in the three previous years combined. “When writing and recording the new album, I tried to keep in mind the energy of our live show. To a degree that influenced song selection.” The energy and the intimacy of Ruttan’s live performances come through on every track on Sunshine. As Ruttan wrote or co-wrote every song on the album, it’s also a very personal body of work. “As a singer/songwriter, my albums usually end up being windows into where I am in my life when I write and record them. It’s never an intentional thing – but that’s what ends up happening.” The album’s lead-off single, Sing That Song Again, is a nostalgic look at youth, the friendships made early in life, and the role music plays in our lives and relationships. Ruttan and his band have embarked on a 23-city cross-Canada tour that will take them from British Columbia to P.E.I. “I love writing, recording, and producing records, but singing those songs for a live audience is the fourth critical step in the process. It completes the circle, and Deric Ruttan hits the grandstage stage at the Renfrew Fair on Friday night. galvanizes the music.”

Renfrew Fair

Conlee committed to helping the family farm John Conlee is a lot like his songs. He lives a domestic life with his wife gale and three children, Rebecca, Jessica and Johnny. During the past two decades, Conlee has achieved a level of success by simply being himself and making records the public can relate to. He is a gifted entertainer, but he’s not into the glitz and hype of the entertainment world. He’d rather spend his “off the road” time working on his 32-acre farm outside of Nashville, or engaging in his woodworking and gun-smithing hobbies. Born and raised in Kentucky farm country, Conlee grew up plowing fields, slopping hogs, harvesting grain, raising tobacco, and tending cattle. He began his crusade to save the family farm system several years ago, performing a concert in Omaha, Nebraska in June 1985 as a benefit for the National Farmers Organization. When Willie nelson announced his plans for the Farm Aid concerts, Conlee called and offered his services. Conlee has since been part of nine Farm Aid concerts, which have raised $13 million to help the family farmer. “I certainly didn’t help to organize the entertainers and the concerts for the publicity,” says Conlee, “I wanted to help bring attention to the crisis affecting this nation’s family farms. With the help of Willie and others, we

brought the family problems to the forefront and some changes began to take place. “I’m not a radical or a rebel,” Conlee continues, “but I will stand up and speak my mind on issues that I feel affect me, my family and others, and the farm crisis was, and remains, one of those issues.” Conlee’s success began in the late 70s. S igned to ABC Records after working in radio for a number of years, Conlee was ready to make records rather than just sit back and spin them. His first release, Back Side of Thirty went no where fast. Three more singles also met with a minimum success, although they all charted. But in March of 1978, the label released Rose Colored Glasses, a song Conlee wrote, which became a huge hit and his signature song. In January of 1979, the label re-released Back Side of Thirty which went on to become a No. 1 record. The hits continued to roll. The Conlee hit list includes, Lady Lay Down, Before My Time, Friday Night Blues, Miss Emily’s Picture, Busted, I Don’t Remember Loving You, Common Man, I’m Only In It For The Love, In My Eyes, As Long As I’m Rocking With You, Years After You, Domestic Life, Mama’s Rockin Chair, Hit The Ground Runnin’ and Fellow Travelers.

All of Conlee’s hits have that unmistakable common thread – that unique voice. Unlike many artists today, there are several aspects of Conlee’s career that have remained constant. His career has been managed from the beginning by Dave Roberts and all his records have been produced by Bud Logan. In the entertainment world where artists change manager, agents and producers almost as often as they change their socks, Conlee has not tampered with success. He has remained loyal and constant with the people who have helped him from the beginning – which tells you quite a bit about the man with the rose-colored glasses. Overall, there have been 29 single releases throughout the years with 26 of them charting in the top 20 or better. Eight of those 26 have reached the coveted No. 1 spot on the national country charts. His record tenure, beginning at ABC Records, brought him to MCA Records when the two labels merged. Conlee also recorded for Columbia Records where he scored four hit singles signing with Nashville’s 16th Avenue Records, a division of the Opryland Music Group. This was something of a homecoming for Conlee, who has been a member of the Grand John Conlee is Saturday’s grandstand performer. Ole Opry since 1981.

It’s no secret that arthritis afflicts a large number of Canadian seniors. In fact, those who live into their later years will most certainly have to put up with osteoporosis to some degree. But arthritis does not just affect the elderly; some forms of this disease can also affect children who are so young they haven’t even learned to walk yet. What’s more, thousands of young adults are stricken with arthritis each year. Arthritis is a disease involving inflammation of the joints and can present itself in various forms. In fact, there are more than 100 types of arthritis. Although inflammation is the body’s normal reaction to injury, arthritis can be a debilitating disease for many suffers. While tendinitis and bursitis are two relatively minor forms of arthritis, fibromyalgia and systematic lupus are much more serious forms of-this disease. While most people are familiar with arthritis, not everyone understands how it affects the body. More than 100 joints connect the 206 bones in our bodies. Between each bone is a cavity that gives the bones room to move. This space contains a capsule which produces a thick fluid that lubricates and nourishes the joint. In most forms of arthritis, this liquid swells, becomes thicker and contains cells that are inflamed. It is this inflammation that can damage the cartilage and bone surrounding the joint. Some of the warning signs to look out for include redness, inflammation, heat and pain. September is Arthritis Month in Canada. During this time, public awareness and information campaigns will be held across the country. Take advantage of this opportunity to make sure arthritis doesn’t slow you down. Take control of the situation today by gathering information and by taking steps toward a healthier lifestyle. Remember, pain doesn’t have to be a part of daily life. There is medication available that will put more spring into your step. Regular exercise and a healthy balanced diet can also reduce the effects of arthritis. 411219

Thumbs up for the White Pine Festival ‘Hats off to everybody’

Arnprior’s White Pine Festival was not without its challenges, with high winds and cool temperatures forcing organizers to close up early on Sunday, but the event was still a hit with all kinds of events held over the two days. At left, Crash the clown, of Ottawa, with Noah Wallace, 7, left, and William Wallace, 9, both from Arnprior.

Continued from front There were many highlights, not the least of which was the big crowd of people milling around town on Saturday, said Marcil. Some were heard saying they even fought elbow to elbow up John Street. And there were several other festival features that garnered the praise of festival goers. “The OPP Golden Helmets certainly impressed everybody,” said Marcil. “And the Saturday night entertainment courtesy of The Countrymen was outstanding. I got just great comments all weekend about how much there was to do.” Saturday’s bed races had to be cancelled last minute, said Marcil, but organizers hope to give it another try next year. Marcil and his co-organizers are thanking all those who worked together to make the event such a success. “On behalf of myself and the White Pine Festival committee, we would like to thank all our sponsors, the vendors and visitors - all those who made the festival what it was. Hats off to everybody!” Sunday’s high winds caused

problems for vendors with tents and dragonboat competitors gearing up for the afternoon races, including the Town of Arnprior staff ’s dragonboat, which capsized trying to make its way from the Ottawa to Madawaska River. Safety concerns forced organizers to shut things down before anyone was hurt, said Marcil. Arnprior OPP Staff Sgt. Mike Forster was pleased with the organizers’ crowd control and the crowds themselves. He said there were only minor incidents over the weekend, nothing major to be concerned about. “It was well run, no issues to speak of,” Forster said. “Our Golden Helmets did a nice show. I think it’s a great event and I wish the town well.” Following a short break, the organizing committee will meet for a post mortem of this year’s festival and to start making plans for next year’s event. Next year marks the 150th anniversary of the Town of Arnprior and the committee will certainly keep that in mind and work with organizers of the celebrations to plan for the occasion, said Marcil.

1990- 2011 Erik Aidan Nugent from White Lake, who unfortunately passed away due to a vehicle accident on Saturday August 27, 2011. Predeceased by his brother Braedan, he is a beloved son of Babette Nugent (partner Tom) of White Lake and Kevin (partner Lorraine) Nugent of Peterborough. A graduate of Arnprior and District High School, Erik was on his way to further his dreams with friends, to study Alternate Energy Technology at St. Lawrence College in Kingston. An excellent student, a fine athlete, with a great sense of humour, Erik kept his friends and family close, meanwhile living his life to the fullest. Being so young, he already outlined his goals, always talking about what he wanted to change with the world. Before Erik’s passing, he had already made an impact on the people around him; always ready to lend a hand, to give us hope and perseverance, or tell a few jokes. He was quick to make friends, formed strong bonds with many of those around him and moved the hearts of an entire community. Erik will be greatly mourned by the community of White Lake. He hopes that in his life, with his passing, his friends can be inspired to move forward and be the best they can be. Most of all, Erik will be greatly missed by his entire family, who will carry on his spirit and love of life. Visitations at The Boyce Funeral Home, Chapel, Visitation and Reception Centre, 138 Daniel St. N., Arnprior on Wednesday 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service was held in The Chapel Thursday September 1, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers his father Kevin has asked to donate to World Vision Canada, such as the Horn of Africa Fund. Erik’s dream was to live in the Northwest Territories. His mother, Babette, is accepting donations on Erik’s behalf to save endangered animals such as the Arctic polar bears.
