‘Slam dunk’ Judge sides with residents in Braeside quarry suit DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

‘TIS THE SEASON The Arnprior ChronicleGuide is full of Christmas cheer this edition with a host of holiday events going on in and around the community. 14, 15, 16, 21, 25, 32, 33, 34

LIGHT-UP AT ADMH Arnprior and District Memorial celebrated its 12th annual tree lighting ceremony last week. Music, food and fun were all part of the festive event. 6

The nine Davids of Braeside defeated their Goliath. A judged has ruled against Miller Group (Smith’s Construction) on all three aspects related to its temporary asphalt quarry operation. Nine nearby residents took the company to Ontario Supreme Court of Justice Small Claims Court in Pembroke in late August for nuisance, trespassing and negligence. Judge Rod Sauriol accepted in full the credibility of the residents. “I accept the evidence of the plaintiffs without hesitation,” reads his Nov. 17 judgment. “I find their evidence was truthful and unexaggerated. Even under lengthy cross-examination it was not negated to any extent that would cause me to disbelieve any one of them. The evidence of the plaintiffs I accept without reservation.” The residents, led by Ecojustice Canada lawyers, consider it a moral victory. But they did win $14,700, plus $3,500 for legal fees. Kathy Cassanto got $600; Sean Moore and Mike Battison each got $1,500; Norma Moore, Shawn Burton and Terry Kreiger each got $1,700; Mark Popiel, Bill MacMechan, and Cherily Outhwaite each got $2,000. They were asking for the maximum $25,000. But Miller’s lawyer won a limit on the time period of 48 days for the infractions. If the group fought it, the whole case could have been dropped. Still, Norma Moore is pleased with the outcome. “The ruling was incredibly good for us,” said Moore. “The judge picked up on everything we said; he believed us without reservation. It was a slam dunk.” Miller is appealing the decision. Representative Tom Jones could not be reached for comment. See ‘COURT’ Page 3

A REAL TREE-T IN DOWNTOWN ARNPRIOR With a twinkle in his eye and help from some little friends, Santa lights the Christmas tree at the corner of John and Madawaska in Arnprior Saturday. The tree-lighting ceremony was organized by the Arnprior Business Improvement Association. For more on the event, which was a first for the BIA, see Page 32.

Former ADHS principal remembered fondly JOHN CARTER john.carer@metroland.com

Borden Wallace is being remembered by his former students and staff for his friendliness and fairness. The former Arnprior District High School principal died in Arnprior District Memorial Hospital Dec. 1 at the age of 73. He had been fighting cancer for some time. Wallace was principal at

ADHS from 1982 to 1991, before heading back to his town of birth to lead RCI for three years before retiring. However, Arnprior remained his home. ADHS high school principal Neil Farmer, who was a student at the school during Wallace’s time as principal, said he provided a wonderful example for other educators. See ‘WALLACE’ Page 6

M-B councillors discuss new building options

Treading carefully with karst McNab-Braeside hosted a meeting Nov. 29 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help church in Braeside for residents to learn more about karst and the township’s options for managing the areas of it in within the township. “Karst is fractured limestone,” explained Mayor Mary Cambpell, who joined Paul Moreau, director of development and property for Renfrew County and Senior Renfrew County planner Bruce Howarth at the meeting. Karst landscapes are caused mainly by erosion of bedrock and can potentially include features such as sinkholes, caves, sinking streams and various forms of furrows. It’s important council and residents arm themselves with the proper information when dealing with land use in karst areas, the province strongly recommends. The Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry recently issued karst topography data map to the county. The majority of karst in the province is immature and does not pose a significant hazard for most development proposals, explained officials, so the challenge for municipalities is how to ensure planning decisions are consistent with provincial regulations by limiting development on hazardous land while reducing the need for expensive studies at the property owner’s expense. “We will only survive … if we understand how to work with nature,” said Campbell. Moreau explained the province says if you’re on karst, don’t develop unless you do all the studies. In introducing Howarth, Moreau explained the planner, after researching the issue with his department and looking at what’s done across the province, has an alternate policy to consider, which council could adopt. Renfrew County will likely adopt it in their official plan, explained Moreau. “Bruce has taken the best of all those in trying to develop a policy for

Bruce Howarth explains that much of the county has karst. Renfrew County,” said Moreau. The planning act gives townships power to make decisions but these have to be consistent with provincial objectives, explained Howarth and protect the environment, health and planning interests. Karst varies widely, from mature to immature, and even the data provided for the county is somewhat limited and broken down into three categories – known, inferred and potential, said Howarth. “Lots of overburden will filter out chemicals,” he said. Karst is affected by several factors, including the amount of overburden cover or natural soil on bedrock. “If it’s greater than one metre … karst doesn’t really occur,” he said. When there’s thin or no soil or bare limestone, karst features start to be noticed, he said. “The hazard level can vary quite a

Two potential uses for the Perneel building and an offer to do design drawings for free were discussed at the McNab-Braeside council meeting Tuesday evening. People approached Mayor Mary Campbell recently to suggest the inclusion of a daycare centre at the newly-purchased property next to the existing municipality. They told her all local daycares are at capacity. Campbell asked council to approve a meeting for parents to gauge interest in the idea. She figures at least 15 children between the ages of 10 months and 5 years old would make it viable, assuming parents paid $200 per month for each. However, she cautioned that it isn’t clear the need exists. Less than three years ago the municipality could have tapped into provincial grants to build a daycare centre, but only seven families showed up to a public meeting. See ‘DAYCARE’ Page 27

bit depending on the specific site,” said Howarth. The county does have quite a bit of karst, he explained, with two “quite mature” areas – a network of underground caves near Westmeath and the Bonnechere Caves near Eganville. What the recent data does not show, said Howarth, is the maturity of the karst or how much of a hazard actually exists. “Just because it’s known doesn’t mean the hazard is greater,” he said. In researching various policies and providing council with three options, county staff kept in mind the need to limit development on hazardous karst while reducing the need for expensive studies. The option Howarth and staff are recommending takes into consideration the greatest concern for immature karst is the quality of the groundwater. Studies have shown that in areas where the potential for karst has been identified, it’s likely to not develop if features are not found within one metre from the surface. The suggested option is a multiplestep approach, explained Howarth, which involves completing three test holes to determine whether the hazard exists. The township’s chief building inspector or municipal sewage inspector will determine if there is generally more than one metre of overburden material between the surface the bedrock. If there is, no further inspection will be required and development will be permitted. If there is less than one metre, further geotechnological studies will be required. “We’re saying, let’s not jump to that step right away,” said Howarth. “Just because there’s less than a metre doesn’t mean it’s going to be a hazard.” Howarth explained further that the policy, should it be adopted, will apply to new development applications only, not existing lots. The karst map is available at the township office and the proposed policy will come to council at a future meeting.

Court can’t tell Miller when, where to locate plant findings of Mr. Trought and Dr. Wiseman that the plaintiffs’ symptoms are caused by vehicle exhaust, wood burning, cigarette smoke or food as opposed to the fumes from the asphalt plant.” Harm was severe, he said, adding residents live in a formerly quiet rural neighbourhood; Miller was a private, for-profit company, not a public utility; and the plaintiffs were not abnormally sensitive. He also found Miller guilty of trespass from the fumes and noise that migrated to the plaintiffs’ properties. The plaintiffs lost the enjoyment of their property. He found that Miller was liable in negligence. Miller owed a duty of care

to the neighbours. Miller knew from its Ministry of the Environment (MOE) certificate of approval that odour was a contaminant that might cause an adverse effect off site, the ruling said. Miller violated the terms of the certificate of approval by locating the plant on the quarry floor and failing to extend the stack to 12.1m above natural grade. “Defendant waited until after it had received complaints and after the MOE Air Facility Report of 2009 before taking any action,” Sauriol wrote. Miller would like to expand and open a permanent asphalt plant at the Braeside location to help in the twinning of Highway 417.

Continued from front It could be another year before the appeal process is finished. The court decision has no bearing on when and where Miller puts the plant. But should it be dragged back in court on similar charges, a judge would likely impose a more severe punishment if the company is found guilty. The charges stem from plant operations during the fall of 2009. Adverse effects included irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, loss of appetite, shortness of breath, headaches and nausea. Sauriol rejected arguments from Miller experts John Trought and Dr. Boris Wiseman. “I find it impossible to accept the

The auditor general’s scathing report “validatesâ€? Progressive Conservative campaign themes, according to John Yakabuski. The Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP pointed at the Liberals election promise to create 50,000 green energy jobs, only to have Auditor General Jim McCarter on Monday show that 30,000 are short-term construction jobs. “It basically validates everything we’ve said,â€? Yakabuski said. “We were telling the truth and they were not.â€? Energy Minister Chris Bentley told the Toronto Star the government never promised all green jobs would be permanent. “We’ve been very clear there would be a mix. There’s nothing wrong with construction jobs. They put food on the table for families,â€? said Bentley. Still, Yakabuski had plenty from the report to sling at the Liberals. • Billions worth of renewable energy projects were online quickly, but with little oversight. The one per cent annual increase to ratepayers is up to 7.9 per cent a year for the next five years. • Even with Ontario Hydro ratepayers contributing $8 billion since 1999 to debt retirement, some of that mon-

MP welcomes crime bill passage The Conservatives crime bill “is long overdue,â€? RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant said last Friday as she voted for the legislation. “As I stood and voted for our Safe Streets and Communities Act, my thoughts turned to a young Barry’s Bay girl and her horrible, brutal, senseless murder. “The thought that her murderer was never publically identified and back on the streets after only three years, the result of a flawed justice system, outraged the entire Bay community.â€? “Today’s vote was long overdue.â€? The Safe Streets and Communities Act includes such components as: • Increased penalties for sexual offences against children; • Tougher sentences for organized drug crime; • SĂŠbastien’s law: to better protect the public from violent and repeat young offenders; • Ending house arrest for serious crimes; • Providing victims with the right to attend parole hearings; • Eliminating pardons for serious crimes; • Additional discretion for the Minister of Public Safety when considering the return of Canadian offenders from abroad.

ey has gone to stranded debt, meaning it will take longer to pay off the $7.8 billion owed. • The Ministry of Natural Resources has no idea what the forestry management activities are of one-third of the sector’s companies. In the $12-billiona-year industry, companies say they are replanting 40 per cent of the trees they cut down, but up to half of them might not be surviving. • Ontario drivers pay five times what other Canadians pay for auto insurance. That’s because injury claims are much higher. Fraud costs up to $1.3 billion a year. • Although Ontarians are paying more for family doctors, that hasn’t meant better access. The few doctors still on the fee-for-service model earn 25 per cent less than those on popular alternative funding arrangements. • It is unclear if the $1.1 billion a year paid to specialist doctors to do extra research or move to underserviced parts of the province is working or not. • As one of the largest wholesale wine and spirits buyers in the world, the government should lobby companies for lower prices instead of allowing them to peg costs at retail prices. • Many Trillium Foundation grantgetters can’t prove how they spent money from the $100 million fund.

• The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities doesn’t check to ensure private colleges it has shut down have actually closed. • The 85 per cent goal for high school graduates hasn’t been reached, though numbers are increasing. • There is no proper accounting for the almost $500 million spent annually on people with developmental disabilities. • More is spent on Legal Aid in Ontario than any other province, but only the destitute qualify. It is unknown if the $190 million paid to lawyers is justified. • Lawyer fees have skyrocketed while caseloads remain the same. A full 80 per cent of clients don’t get service within the 90-day deadline. Yakabuski said the green economy hasn’t worked in other jurisdictions. Technology can’t make the wind blow more often or the sun shine brighter. Although his party is blamed for rolling brown-outs early last decade, he insists more natural gas was found to make up the difference. “We haven’t solved the energy situation,â€? said Yakabuski, PC energy critic. He added that only by cutting costs, meaning a public sector wage freeze, will the province wrestle down its debt.

ADMH, SUPPORTERS LIGHT THE NIGHT Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital hosted the 12th annual Christmas Tree lighting Dec. 1, inviting members of the public to celebrate with honourary guests, the Bretlaff-Ferrari family, as the trees were lit for the season. A visit from Santa, Christmas carols and treats were all part of the fun as a large crowd gathered at the hospital for the event, which over the years has raised more than $140,000. Above, from left, are Jane, Joe and Julianna Ferrari and Marion Bretlaff (Mel is not pictured but was present) and event emcees Ted Kelly and Trevor Reid.

Wallace ‘quite a character’ Continued from front “He was fair and very approachable,” he said, noting he learned a great deal about being a principal from Wallace. “He was a great role model. “He always made the tough decisions he had to make.” Farmer said. Students might not have liked it sometimes, “but you always felt it was fair and reasonable … and you understood why.” Farmer said that “the kids respect you if they feel you care … and accept your decisions if they are fair. He cared; he was fair.” Long-time ADHS teacher Stan Ball said Wallace was a “real humanist.” “He would listen to everyone … he was very fair,” said Ball. “When you dealt with him, you knew it was coming from the horse’s mouth, not its rear end.” Ball and Farmer agreed that Wallace had a great sense of humour. “He had a way when he did the morning announcements that made you smile.” Wallace’s sister, Renfrew Coun. Gail Cole, said that he was “quite a character in high school.” The RCI graduate was fond of saying to his students “don’t

BORDEN WALLACE try any tricks because I know them all,” she said. “He was able to relate to kids, yet he was always in control,” she said. After one football championship win, he got wind that champagne had been spirited into the dressing room, said Ball. He dealt with the issue firmly, but without suspending any students, he added. “He took the humanist approach.” Ball said that Wallace coached football, which was difficult given the time constraints put on him by his administrative duties. “But he made time for that (coaching) to happen,” he said. “He was a huge fan of all athletics … and

really supported them,” agreed Farmer. It was no surprise Wallace was a strong backer of athletics, as he was an avid sportsman as a student, said Cole. She noted he enjoyed the outdoors, especially golfing and spending time in the Calabogie area at his in-laws (the Campbells) fishing and hunting. She explained her brother took metallurgical engineering at Queen’s University after graduating high school. However, he didn’t particularly like working for the government, so he turned his sights to education, she said. Wallace taught in such places as Cloyne and Cobden, before becoming a vice-principal at ADHS, then principal in 1982. Cole said Wallace was a good teacher who loved working with children. He had the knack of simplifying mathematics so even those that had trouble with the subject could work their way through it, she said. “Bordie” was a good friend to many, said Ball, who was brought to ADHS by Wallace to “keep the ball rolling” when it came to the

school’s physical education program. “He was a great guy.” Farmer said Wallace was a common sight walking to and from ADHS. “He had a big smile for everyone,” he said. He also spent a great deal of times walking the halls engaging students in conversation. “He was very visible. He loved his community, staff and students.” Cole said she when she and her husband bought a car in Arnprior recently, she asked the saleswoman if she knew her brother. “Everyone knows Uncle Bordie,” was the response. Borden Taylor Wallace is survived by his wife Lois (Campbell); daughters Jane (Steve) Hudson, Leesa (Stephen) Mosley and Rebecca (Bill) Frivalt, all of Arnprior; and four grandchildren. Visitations were held at The Boyce Funeral Home Chapel and his funeral at Grace-St. Andrew’s United Church in Arnprior Sunday, Dec. 4. His family asked that in memoriams be made to Arnprior District Memorial Hospital’s Partners in Caring campaign or the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.

Jamie Anne Bentz entertained the tree lighting crowd with several holiday songs. The event allows family members to purchase lights in memory of loved ones. More trees are light up this year than ever before.

Council to consider roads repaving list DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

The road leading to the Nick Smith Centre and a few behind the legion are first up for repaving next year, according to a report destined for Arnprior council. James Street tops the list produced by the public works advisory committee. Chaired by Coun. Ted Strike, the committee took a lengthy amount of time to examine roads in town, both visually and through documentation. “We put a lot of time into this,” Strike said, former public works director. “It’s better than what we’ve had in the past.” Last year it cost the town about $200 a metre for repaving. It spent about $250,000 on the work, an amount the committee assumes council will stick to this year. The committee’s lists for road resurfacing are: • Priority 1 list: James Street (from Daniel South to public works garage) at $74,000; • Priority 2 list: Addie Street (from Mima to Atkinson) at $13,200; • Mima Street (Addie to end) $13,800; • Russell Street South (William East to James) $35,400; • Thomas Street North (Addie to end) $15,400; • Thomas Street North (Addie to Claude) $38,000; • Priority 3 list: McGonigal Street West (Daniel North to John North) $23,000. The list doesn’t include roads in need of below-surface infrastructure work, such

as Tierney Street and others, according to public works director Janet Collins. “The Public Works Advisory Committee is reviewing streets in relation to the surface only,” Collins said. “This list will need to be further reviewed in relation to other services such as sanitary, storm, water, and others. “It is not reasonable to resurface a road if it is in need of underground services, but it may be reasonable if the resurfacing is expected to last 10 years and at that time the underground will require rehabilitation.” She added that the town will award, in the next couple of weeks, a master plan project for sewer and water. It will include modelling that will assist the town in further understanding the limitations of its systems. The plan will not be completed until July 2012 and will provide information on conditions and bottlenecking. Hence, this will likely alter the anticipated schedule for rehabilitation of various streets. Finances are also critical in scheduling work, Collins said. For this reason, staff cannot guarantee what streets will be rehabilitated and when. Last year Riverview Drive and others were done. Division Street falls under the County of Renfrew’s responsibility. Other members of the public works advisory committee are Dave Coreau, David Harmer, Philip MacLeod and Mayor David Reid. The priority roads list comes up for council consideration at this Monday’s meeting (Dec. 12).

EDITORIAL LETTERS

Occupy shifted discourse

Thanks for the encouragement

W

hat, exactly, did the Occupy Movement accomplish? We saw thousands of people in cities across North America and the other parts of the Western world spend days and weeks camped out in parks. For what, exactly? A lot. To begin with, Occupy brought together people from disparate groups with a common cause. One, to fight for social and economic equality; and two, to speak over the heads of the politicians, who regardless of which party they represent have often disappointed the 99 per cent by siding with the one per cent. They took the protest to those who now hold genuine power and influence in our democracy: the ultra-rich and their corporations. It’s a powerful phrase: “We are the 99 per cent.” It says everything to those willing to hear, and nothing to those who refuse. To sympathizers on the left it means social justice; to the moderate right it means the restoration of capitalism by the dismantling of monopolies and oligarchies. Occupy has made it impossible to ignore growing inequalities and related social injustices. The subject is now discussed with some depth in workplaces, universities and, yes, even newspapers. Even the business-friendly think-tank Conference Board of Canada is heeding the warning. It says income inequality has risen more in Canada than in the U.S. since the mid-1990s, and faster than in many other advanced countries. The board awarded Canada a C grade for its equality of income. The inequality gap was immense by the end of the 19th century, which allowed communism to gain strength against capitalism. The moderate right finally understands that, by allowing middle class incomes to stagnate as they’ve done for 30 years when trickle-down economics and ‘all taxes bad’ mantras were first sung, eventually consumer spending would fizzle. Continue to squeeze the middle class and, at some point, we’ll see more than simple verbal demands for wealth distribution. That should concern the 100 per cent. Setting aside these types of discussions that took place regularly at Occupy protests, critics pretended to be baffled by the apparent lack of a central message. Yet they were fully aware that should some such catch-phrase as “down with capitalism” take hold, it would be ease to vilify. ‘There. Case closed,’ the critics could say. But the occupiers never fell for it. They insisted everyone had a unique and legitimate beef to pick with the one per cent. And by doing so they prolonged the discourse to the extent that it has changed politics. That there is now a chance to restore balance is an accomplishment the Occupy movement can be proud.

An open letter to Arnprior:

Thanks for helping animal shelter To the Editor: The Arnprior and District Humane Society Bake Sale fundraising event Saturday, Nov. 26 was a great success. The animal shelter receives 100 per cent of the proceeds, which raised $1,070. Our thanks go out to the wonderful people who donated items for the sale, the volunteers who donated their time during the event, and to the community that supported us with their purchases and cash donations. Brenda Ambrose Arnprior & District Humane Society

It is with mixed feelings that I leave my position as the Economic Development co-ordinator in Arnprior. On one side, I am looking forward to exploring new challenges and opportunities in my future endeavours. However, on the other side, I will miss the people in this wonderful community who have supported and encouraged me and made doing my job for the last few years a pleasure. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mayor David Reid, former Mayor Terry Gibeau and council for their support and assistance during my time in this role. I would also like to thank town staff for all of their help, especially Glenn Arthur and Robin Smith who were always a pleasure to work with. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to work closely with the Chamber of Commerce board of directors and the BIA executive as well as the business leaders in our community. Last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank everybody at the Kenwood Corporate Centre for welcoming me and making me feel like part of a family. You all hold a special place in my heart. Mark and Cheryl, thank you for always being there through laughter and tears and ready to give me a hug or a swift kick in the pants when necessary. Best wishes to everyone in Arnprior. Keep making this a great place to be. I look forward to visiting in the future. Erin Clarke Arnprior

Community Policing will continue to partner with Legion To the Editor: This letter is in reference to the recent article titled ‘Community Policing ends partnership with Legion’ (Chronicle-Guide, Dec. 1). As president of Community Policing, on behalf of our committee, I would like to advise that this article is absolutely false in the context that it is written. It is unfortunate that Mr. Smith has chosen to report to the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide that we have ended our partnership with the Legion, and made such blatant assumptions that are not true. The facts are as follows: In 2010, Arnprior Community Policing was advised by the Arnprior OPP that Community Policing would be held liable if an accident occurs during the parade. Community Policing

Established in 1879

challenged this inference by the OPP, to no avail. Although Community Policing has provided a service for the Santa Claus parade without incident for several years, given the direction of these discussions, Community Policing members felt they had no choice but to advise the Legion that we could not provide this service this year. The letter sent to the Legion by Community Policing was an apology and an explanation, with the commitment to continue our partnership with the Legion. Our position on the issue of helping with the parade has absolutely nothing to do with our continued collaboration with the Legion. Community Policing will continue to resolve the issue of liability in hopes that we will be able to provide this service to the Legion in the future. Furthermore, we have absolutely no

To the Editor: This Letter refers to the article ‘Town, developer faces OMB appeal’, Chronicle-Guide, Dec. 1. It may be useful in this time of disappearing habitat, flora and faunas to review what the Town of Arnprior Official Plan states in reference to the development on and in the vicinity of natural heritage areas. (Both of these properties: Vydon and Gillies Grove are N.H. areas). The town’s Official Plan, Section 11.0 ‘General Policies for Development’ states: 2) Wetlands: “Development and site alteration within a wetland is prohibited. Development may be permitted on lands adjacent to a wetland (within 120 metres) provided it is demonstrated by an Environmental Impact Study that there will not be any negative impacts on the natural features or ecological functions of the wetland.” 3) Endangered and threatened species: “Development and site alteration shall not be permitted in the significant habitat of endangered species and threatened species. Development and site alteration may be permitted in adjacent areas (within 50 metres) provided an Environmental Impact Study shows that the proposed development or site alteration will have no negative impact on the species or

habitat.” 4) Significant woodlands: “Development and site alteration within or adjacent to (within 50 metres) a significant woodland area may be permitted if it is demonstrated that there will be no negative impactst on the feature or on the ecological functions for which the area is identified.” The swamp and brook that has their origins across Division Street and Gillies Grove (a significant woodland) and birds, animals and plants need protection. The Town of Arnprior’s Official Plan (Section 11, Natural Heritage Areas) states; “The Town of Arnprior has many tremendous assets. Among them are the natural areas, shorelines and waterfront that make the area enticing for flora and fauna as well as for people. “To protect the natural heritage features and areas of the Town, Council will only consider development or site alteration on or adjacent to these features and areas that by reason of character, design or location have demonstrated that no negative impacts will occur on the natural feature or ecological functions for which the area is identified.” This Natural Heritage Area of Arnprior faces a new challenge. That is why the OMB is involved. Russ Corbett Arnprior

Roads and bridges are crumbling across this country as municipalities call out for more sustainable funding. Renfrew County is no exception, but public works director Dave Darch says there are still good reasons to be pleased with its new 10-year capital works program. The program was unanimously approved by county council Nov. 30. Certain assumptions are made in the program, including a growth of two per cent in the county’s tax levy each year, an assumption that allows the allocation of tax levy dollars for road and bridge work to increase from $5.7 million next year to $6.8 million by 2021. Gas tax revenue and debt financing will also provide revenues that will allow the county to spend up to $12 million on capital works each of the next 10 years. Municipalities were given opportunity to comment on the recent draft. Five municipalities did, including Admaston-Bromley, Greater Madawaska and Horton. Some adjustments were made to accommodate the feedback. This included advancing work on Lochwinnoch Road (in Horton) to 2014, 2015 and 2016. AdmastonBromley only sought clarification on a few projects, while Greater Madawaska commented on six roads or bridges. Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon said it was nice to have input and called the program “extensive and well done. I fully endorse and support what’s being proposed. I have no concerns moving forward.” Renfrew County’s 2012 capital works budget of $11.2 million will accommodate work on four bridges, four culverts and 11 roads. “The over-riding principle in all of the capital works is ‘just in time’,” said director Darch. An example would be doing surface treatments on certain roads, such as Foymount Road, and returning for needed surface treatments seven or eight years later, instead of doing far more expensive road reconstruction at four or five times the cost. Four of the roads earmarked for work in 2012 are Bruce Street at the north end of Renfrew, Victoria Street in Petawawa, Matawatchan Road in Greater Madawaska and the Ruby Road in Bonnechere Valley. Respective allocations for those projects are $480,000, $2.08 million, $1 million and $1.05 million. See ‘ROADS’ Page 12

Dave Darch’s current contract, as director of Renfrew County public works and engineering, expires next April 30. But he’s not ready to retire quite yet. Renfrew County council has approved

an extension of his contract to Dec. 31, 2013. Darch, who anticipates retiring within the next five years, began working as the county’s public works director in 2007.

CFB Petawawa to grow with 450 Tactical Helicopter Squadron STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Lt.-Col. Chris Moyle, commander in chief at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, addresses Renfrew County council.

Changes are happening at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa, but one thing hasn’t changed. Lt.-Col. Chris Moyle, who became the new commander June 29, says he’s proud to see continuing and unwavering support for the troops from across Renfrew County. While he’s only in his first six months of base commander, 14 years of working on the base have shown him that community support for the soldiers and their families continues. More troops are coming, too, as construction continues on the base’s new helicopter hanger, whose footings are nearly a kilometre long. Previously called MHLH, or medium- to heavy-lift helicopter, the squadron is now officially called 450 Tactical Helicopter Squadron. The number of soldiers arriving to support the program may be as high as 450, with a total number of family members of maybe 1,200.

Continued work on Flat Rapids Road included in county plan

“The helicopter project is going very, very well,” said Lt.-Col. Moyle, who indicated there will be enough infrastructure in place by the summer of 2012 to enable initial operating capability. “You’ll see 20, 25 families coming to your communities next summer, and the remainder the summer after that.” By the summer of 2013, infrastructure should be completed, as personnel start flying the six or eight Chinook helicopters located on site. This will mean busier skies in Renfrew County, but also across the country, said Moyle. “There will be more activity over the county, without a doubt, because we’ll still have the 427 tactical helicopter squadron here which is based on the Bell (light-utility) helicopter.” The base commander says the Chinooks will be “used significantly, not just in Petawawa, not just in Renfrew County, but for exercises and support to the (Canadian) Forces across the country.” CFB Petawawa doesn’t have another major deployment until its soldiers head back

Continued from Page 11 The 3.2 kilometres of Bruce Street will be resurfaced. A three-year plan for Matawatchan Road has been consolidated into one year, but as a result not all of the planned realignments will be done. Other roads on the 2012 capital works program are Grattan, Barron Canyon,

to Kabul, Afghanistan in 2014. But their presence will continue to be felt in Renfrew County, where CFB staged a large exercise (Maple Resolve) in the spring and another (Royal Canon Shot) in November. A large exercise will reach several Renfrew County communities next spring. Known as Spartan Bear, it will run three to four weeks in April and May. “They can expect to see 3,000 to 4,000 troops in a scenario moving from town to town,” said the base commander. “Some will probably be based on operations from an international perspective, of lessons we have learned, and some will probably be based on domestic-type response operations. “The brigade’s task is to respond domestically or internationally, which means it has to be flexible in its training.” Several county councillors expressed their municipalities’ support for the soldiers. They included Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards Mayor Janice Visneskie, who said, “We’re very proud of you … We have so much respect for you and your soldiers.”

Whelan-Norton, Flat Rapids, Opeongo, Drive-In and Letterkenny. Roads selected to receive major attention in 2013 include Cobden (from Highway 60 to the CPR crossing), Hyndford, Forest Lea and Rockingham. The four bridges to be repaired in 2012 will be Addington Road, Petawawa River, Centennial Lake and Indian River.

About $150,000 will be spent on engineering for the Centennial Lake Bridge project, prior to replacing the deck in 2013 for $3 million. Tables listing the road, bridge and culverts in the 10-year-capital works program are expected to be posted on the county’s website at www.countyofrenfrew.ca.

A Christmas event featuring readings, music, seasonal art and refreshments will be held this Sunday, Dec. 11 at the Arnprior Public Library. The sold-out event, called Sights and Sounds of Yuletide, is being presented at 2 p.m. by the Friends of the Library volunteer advocacy group. It is a follow-up to the popular CBC-partnered production of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, presented in 2008. The adult-oriented event will feature story readings by Adam Bramble and head librarian Karen DeLuca. Musical selections will be performed by Arnprior District High School’s Red Velvet Singing Group and Friends member Garry Dowd will lead a carol sing. A display of seasonal quilt projects from the Arnprior Quilters’ Guild will be featured along with photographs by local professional photographers Cate Brennan, Dorothy Garlough, Rhonda McMaster, Lee Narraway and Gemma Robillard. Refreshments will be offered on the library’s lower level following the performances. Friends of the Library re-formed earlier this year after a hiatus of almost two years. The group acts throughout the community to promote the library, its activities, community involvement, reading and literacy. Sights and Sounds of Yuletide is the inaugural event of the re-formed group. The group meets monthly at the Arnprior Public Library at 21 Madawaska St.. Anyone interested in becoming a committee member, or in volunteering at events throughout the year, contact Friends chairperson Fawn Charron at 613-623-9735 or fawn. charron@gmail.com.

People view what the art sale has to offer upstairs at Our Place in the ’Prior on Dec. 4.

Photographers, artists support Arnprior Humane Society PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

Photography and many other forms of artwork were on sale, all for a good cause, at Our Place in the ’Prior Sunday afternoon. Proceeds from the event went to the Arnprior and District Humane Society. “We hope to sell a few paintings, help the humane society out,” photographer Glen Howard said.

Among his own photography work and that of other artists, there was also some other interesting pictures from around the area: The Old Mill in Balaclava, The Lonely Ford in Braeside, Lower Bonnechere Falls and Old Hwy. 17 Mississippi River Bridge, to name a few. Howard noted that Arnprior has a new camera club whose membership is growing. It’s gone from eight people to about 15 who meet once a month. They pick a theme for the month

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

Mayor questions museum costs DEREK DUNN

derek.dunn@metroland.com

Future repairs and a rising budget at the Waba Museum were discussed at the McNab-Braeside council meeting Tuesday evening. After receiving the 2012 museum budget, Mayor Mary Campbell mused aloud about the costs going from $35,000 to $61,000 over the past few years, but revenues changing little. “This is a concern,” Campbell said. “We are so proud that Burnstown Beach is paying for itself.” She asked about $10,000 slated for repairs that didn’t happen. Both councillors Brad McIlquaham and Aldene Styles were quick to say the money might be needed next year. The floorboards are rotting out in at least one of the buildings and if an experiment with a new ventilation system doesn’t dry them out, more drastic measures such as replacing the floor will have to be considered. “That could cost a lot more,” Styles said. None of the artifacts in the house are at risk. POSTAL CODE SAGA The minister of transportation will get a letter from Mayor Mary Campbell indicating he will stifle economic development until township residents see ‘McNabBraeside’ on their driver’s licences. Campbell said other ministries have recognized K7S 0E1 isn’t in ‘Arnprior.’ It is in McNab-Braeside. She insists when people – even prospective business leaders – type the address into MapQuest, the

wrong municipality come up. “We have one ministry that hasn’t recognized our municipality. Let’s make it the ministry’s problem,” Campbell said. “We’ve just gotten sucked up into the urban model.” Only Coun. Aldene Styles was against sending the letter, saying residents were too confused over the entire issue. “There’s a lot of confusion and people are upset,” Styles said. Other items up for discussion at Tuesday’s township council meeting included: • Staff will send a letter to Arnprior council suggesting another extension to the service agreements. Arnprior is without a chief administrative officer and would likely appreciate pushing negotiations back to March 31. • The mayor’s greeting card read ‘Best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season’. Campbell asked if council was OK with it. Coun. Christine Blimkie insisted ‘Christmas’ be included. ‘Wishing you a Merry Christmas and best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season,’ is how it now reads. Campbell noted there are many religious holidays this time of year, but didn’t press the issue. • Arnprior’s move to put up ‘no parking’ signs on the county’s Madawaska Boulevard could have implications for the township. Parked cars on pseudo sidewalks in White Lake pose a risk for those in motorized wheelchairs. Council is considering ‘no parking’ signs. But without the signs, there will be no tickets handed out.

Ontario hotline established to hear elderly patients’ hospital experiences

Experience you can trust, for your next vehicle.

Ontario Council of Hospital Unions president Michael Hurley says Ontario has closed 18,500 acute-care hospital beds over the past 20 years. Consequently, he says Ontario now has the lowest number of acute-care hospital beds, per population, of any developed economy in the world. Hurley spoke about statistics across the province, but not specifically about Renfrew Victoria Hospital or other hospitals in the area during a visit to the Upper Ottawa Valley this week. While Hurley spoke in Renfrew and Pembroke, stops in Arnprior and Almonte were cancelled. “What we see, as people who work in hospitals, is there is tremendous pressure to move people out of hospitals ... for the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions presipeople who are lying in emerg waiting for dent Michael Hurley says too many seniors admission to the floors,” said Hurley in a are being pushed out of Ontario hospitals news conference at the Renfrew Legion while still ill or are being denied such acutecare services as speech-language pathology Monday. Hurley says a disproportionate num- (help with swallowing and speech). ber of elderly patients, “including those who are still acutely ill,” are being adversely affected by this pressure. OCHU says many such patients are denied required acutecare services. A number of newspapers have documented the phenomenon, including the Toronto Star and the Windsor Star. There have been no such reports out of the Renfrew area. In 2010, 610 Ontario hospital beds were cut, or about two per cent of the province’s bed capacity, according to statistics provided by the Canadian Union of Public Employees. CUPE says Ontario has the lowest average length of hospital stay of all provinces and the fewest acutecare hospitalization per capita of any province. In efforts to profile the hospital EFFECTIVE TODAY. ENDS DECEMBER 14, 2011 experiences of seniors patients and DOWNTOWN ARNPRIOR 80 Elgin Street their family members, OCHU and R0011214184 the Ontario Association of SpeechLanguage Pathologists and Audiologists (OSLA) have established a hotline. The number is 1-888-5990770. “We want to hear the stories about seniors’ care in hospitals today,” said Hurley. The stories will result in an OCHU-OSLA report in February. The news conference hosted by Hurley took place without any Valley hospital employees in attendance. Since August 2011, Hurley and/or other OCHU officials have been to 45 Ontario communities to share 345 WHITE LAKE ROAD, their message.

Nature

Odd sounds in the night are things that puzzle most of us. If we cannot see the source of the sound, our imaginations often fill in the details. Banshees and demons have often been declared responsible for particularly eerie sounds. The other night I was outside when the dark stillness was broken by loud and unusual calls that seemed half and half scream. Michael Runtz moan The odd vocalizations arose a hardwood forest just Nature’s Way from across the narrow bay from our house. Recently, someone reported to me that they heard similar sounds coming from woods near Ottawa. Having heard those disturbing noises a number of times through the years, I knew them to be coming from Porcupines, likely either from animals that had finished mating or from two males having a disagreement. Porcupines mate in the fall and during that time the males wander widely in search of a mate. The females lay down a chemical trail that the males eagerly follow. When two lusting males meet, the aggression between them can rise until they slap each other with their quill-loaded tails. I once came across two porcupines that had obviously had a disagreement. One was whimpering and had quills stuck in its mouth. It also had a cloudy eye, perhaps the result of another encounter years earlier. The other fellow, who was surrounded by dozens of dislodged quills, would periodically shiver, as if it had spent all of its energy and was trying to recuperate. Apparently, the mating process is relatively short-lived, lasting a few minutes at best. However, a pair can copulate a number of times, sometimes so frequently that the male ends up lying exhausted, refusing any more breeding opportunities. After a pair finishes mating, a female will scream to indicate it desires no further interaction from a still-interested male. Males can also scream at a female, possibly if they are rejected as a suitor or just don’t want any more sex. As the calls I heard seemed to come from a single animal, it was likely they were generated by one of these latter scenarios than from two males locked in combat. The mating ritual prior to copulation is – well – a bit kinky. Males stand up on their hind legs and face a female, and with a full erection send a shower of urine over her. The force of the spray has been likened to that of water coming out of a fireman’s hose; this is likely an exaggeration, and I suspect the females never are washed away. The urine contains sexual perfumes called pheromones that elicit a sexual response. If all goes well, the male is accepted and mating proceeds. If the male is deemed unsuitable, perhaps the female heads for the shower!

CHERYL BABINEAU The village of Burnstown is getting into the spirit of Christmas this year to show its support for an Arnprior and area initiative to raise awareness of the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital’s Partners in Caring Foundation. Some Burnstown residents, merchants and eateries have chosen to deck their homes and storefronts with a Scottish flair with the hope that they might become winners of the foundation’s Christmas decorating contest, while supporting a good cause. According to foundation chairman Ted Kelly, the purpose of the contest is two-fold: to put the foundation at the forefront of people’s minds and foster holiday spirit. Some of the participants include Neat Coffee House, Blackbird Cafe, Somethin’ Special Gifts, The Artist’s Cove, Bittersweet Gallery, Nancy and Ted Young ( formerly Beyond the Bulrushes) and The Roberstons. On this Friday, Dec. 9 the merchants will extend their hours to 9 p.m., hosting an open house throughout the weekend, offering seasonal refreshments and door prizes. There will be also opportunities to make donations to the Salvation Army. In the meantime decorative evergreen clusters will be for sale at Bittersweet Gallery, Somethin’ Special and the Artists Cove with proceeds to the Salvation Army and Hearts for Change. One of Burnstown’s heritage log homes (the O’Connor Hotel during the logging days and in the more recent past, Beyond the Bulrushes) will be joining the village in its seasonal celebrations by opening its doors to one and all. The house will be fully decorated for viewing pleasure, and while no tickets are being sold for the tour, a donation will be requested in support of two very worthwhile causes – the local Salvation Army, and one which is of personal interest to the Youngs, owners of the house, an orphanage in Kenya called Hosanna. Visit www.heartsforchange.ca to learn more the Hosanna orphanage, and how you can make a difference.

Aside from touring this beautiful home, there will be seasonal items for sale (proceeds go to the cause) and visitors will be treated to live music and seasonal treats.

The average Canadian will send out 50 holiday cards this season to friends and family. If that many people gave blood, one car accident victim could be saved. Someone like Malorie Butler from Halifax, Nova Scotia. After a serious car crash in 2010 it took almost 50 blood donors to ensure Malorie got to spend the holiday season with her family and friends. She flipped her car six times across a busy highway and was partially ejected from her car. The result was cracked ribs, a broken scapula, spine fracture, bumps and bruises and her liver was severely damaged. “I always joke that I beat the odds because I’m stubborn, but really, I have so much to live for and all of your donations have allowed me to do that,” she said. For more about Malorie’s story, visit www.thankyourdonor.ca/#/143. There’s someone like Malorie in your community - someone who benefited from the generosity of Canadians rallying together to ensure Malorie survived. Please make an appointment to give blood in Arnprior on Wednesday, Dec. 14, urges the Jennifer Heale of Canadian Blood Services.

In the name of fire safety, Arnprior fire chief John Okum is circulating a warning issued by Venmar Ventilation about the potential of motor overheating in certain air exchangers. Okum noted the company has published details regarding the notice about the potential fire hazard on its website (www.venmar. ca/en/supintro.aspx), or they can be reached at 1-866-441-4645. The air exchangers in question were manufactured either between 1983 and 2001 or October 2006 and August 2007. An unlikely series of circumstances could lead to a motor overheating, which may result in the potential fire hazard. Anyone with such an air exchanger should turn the unit off and contact Venmar.

Continued from Page 3 Coun. Brad McIlquham resisted the idea at first, citing high start-up costs that are best left to the private sector. Campbell qualified her position by saying she is against the municipality owning the daycare; it is about providing space if there is a need. “I’m not suggesting the municipality get in the business of daycare,” she said. “But we’ve invited the community to make suggestions. It’ll either be a crying need or a die on the vine.” McIlquham said the entire building should be planned at the same time, not in portions. Coun. Aldene Styles rejected the idea outright. “I’m just not too struck on the idea,” she said, adding township uses such as a community centre, fire station and township offices are what they should “concentrate more” on. Campbell again mentioned council welcoming residents’ ideas, and that if there is a shortage of daycare spots the township is obliged to provide a “sustainable community.” “If they have to go outside the community, as mayor I can’t sweep it under the table,” she said. “Whether I’m struck on the idea is irrelevant.” All except Styles voted in fa-

vour of holding a January meeting on the matter. A second suggest came from the Prior Players for a performing arts centre. Campbell was less enthusiastic, saying she would need to be convinced of high usage. But she also noted there isn’t a performing arts centre between Ottawa and Pembroke. On this idea, McIlquham said municipal uses should trump other ideas. Coun. Christine Blimkie was willing to hear from the group, saying the province is handing out grants for arts and heritage projects. “Everybody’s entitled to be heard,” Blimkie said. “It might be something we can piggy back on.” Campbell said she is interested in hearing from anyone who has an idea that “will pay for itself.” In the end, it was decided that hearing from Prior Players was “premature,” though they may be invited back later. DESIGN DRAWING Jim Lynch of Real Property Assets offered to do drawings free of charge for the new building on the 92-acre property – which includes the Perneel

building - the township purchased for $234,000. Council and staff discussed having a 4,000-square-foot building, similar to the current municipal building – but better laid out for accessibility. Wider hallways and perhaps a functioning elevator – though maintenance and yearly inspection costs are high – would be needed. Most agreed, though, that a ground level building would be better than building up. Firefighters might want in the new building, saying the Perneel ceiling is too low. Public works might move from the current location, too. Lynch’s preliminary sketch was used to address general outlines. On the right side, offices could provide space for the OPP, a mental health centre or similar organization. Outside might be a three-season courtyard with picnic tables under a cover. The building process will be done in phases over about five years. Campbell said the current location off Highway 417 at the corner of Russett Drive and Calabogie Road will soon become too valuable to developers for the township not to sell. “In the end this corner is going to be too valuable for us to sit on,” she said.

Continued from Page 18 • In order to tap into a piece of $187,000 from the Eastern Ontario Economic Development Fund, McNab-Braeside might build a mobile kiosk similar to one in the Pontiac to promote area businesses and services. If it goes with a log cabin look, the work could be finished before the fund’s March 31 deadline. • Council reserved comment on Arnprior’s plan for a downtown tourism kiosk; the township pays dues to the Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce, co-funder of the project. • Both the Braeside and White Lake Women’s Institute euchres would welcome health check clinics similar to that held this month at the township building. • Council has yet to hear back from the Ministry of Transportation after a September request to make the intersection of Highways 17 and 508 safer. A traffic light is an option, but for now council can only send another email. • Council agrees with Tweed’s idea to upload livestock compensation to the province. They would like the province to hire its own person for the work. • The steel door at the building at the White Lake rink will cost $519 to replace. Vandalized last year, the township is trying to get the rink back in working order. It has paid $600 per month in hydro it hasn’t used in order to not be charged when power is turned on again. • Township staff and Stantec are going over design plans to dredge back inland and build a new boat launch near the site where it was planned for in the past. It will be pointed in a new direction this time. • A surplus 1989 ¾ ton fire truck was sold to Ed’s Salvage for $868. • The township will give $100 again this year to Renfrew County 55-plus Games, to be held next year in Arnprior.

ADHS alumni help refurbish weight room in the school CURTIS MCGRATH

ADHS Athletics co-op student

The Arnprior District High School weight room went through a major transformation this summer with the addition of the Matrix Multi-Use weight machine. ADHS Athletic Alumni Association president Joe Lavoie presented Phil Moore, head of the ADHS Athletics department and association secretary and treasurer, with $18,000 to pay for the machine. With its multi-stationed design, the machine helps student athletes, classes and

teams train for sporting events. The large variety of exercises made possible by the new machine allows for older benches, weights and the 1979 Universal Weight Machine to be retired from the weight room. The Matrix will help encourage students at ADHS to live a healthier lifestyle. ADHS student athletes thank the ADHS Athletic Alumni Association for its generous donation that will help students become more fit, and help ADHS teams compete in county, EOSSAA and OFSAA level championships.

The Stars started slowly, losing their first game to the Cobden Cobras 4-2. Cobden scored the only goal in the first period and the Stars were able to hold them off in the second. The Cobras took a bite out of the Stars with two more goals early in the third period, making the score 3-0. Connor Ogilvie scored the first goal for the Stars with the help of Chase Young and Kyle MacKenzie. The Cobras weren’t letting up and came back with another goal with only a minute left in the game. But the Stars weren’t giving up and Jon Bradley fought to the end, scoring the last goal of the game with only .01 second left. The loss put the Stars into the B-side of the tournament. The Stars weren’t going out without a fight. They came back strong in the second game against Barry’s Bay with a 6-1 victory. Kyle MacKenzie started off with the first goal, assisted by Katie Bootland. The Arnprior team kept the momentum going into the third period with the second goal scored by Bailey Schlievert, assisted by Nic Borutski and Michael Toner. Michael took over for the third goal, on which Nic had his second assist along with Bailey. The fourth goal was dealt with by Connor Ogilvie with Katie Bootland helping

The next two goals for the Stars were unassisted by Chase Young. Barry’s Bay took the shutout away for goalie Austin

Farr, scoring their only goal with less than a minute left in the game. The win took the Stars to the final game for the ‘B’ side championship where they met up with Cobden #2 who had the home ice advantage. But the Stars showed them who’s boss when they scored the first three goals in the first period. The first goal was thanks to Michael Toner, assisted by Chase Young. Goal number two went to Jon Bradley with the assistance of Nick Dawson. The third goal scorer was first-year player Isaac Burton, assisted by Nic Borutski and Chase Young. Cobden #2 answered back with two goals before the first period ended making it 3-2 for the Stars. Both teams held off putting numbers on the scoreboard in the second period. Michael Toner closed the door on Cobden #2 when he scored the fourth goal for the Stars, assisted by Grayson Thompson, making the Arnprior Stars tournament Champions (B-side). The tournament win made head coach Harvey Ogilvie and the rest of the coaching staff very proud of all the team players. “Keep up the good work boys and girls.” The Arnprior Atom House League is giving the fans lots to cheer about this season. Come out and support them at their home tournament on Jan 7-8 at the Nick Smith Centre.

Packers pad first-place lead JOHN CARTER

john.carter@metroland.com

Going on an extended road trip has not deterred the Arnprior Packers in the least. The Junior B hockey team won their fifth and sixth straight games last weekend to open up a seven-point lead over Perth in the Valley Division. Making the streak even more impressive is the fact the last four wins have been on the road. The Packers defeated the Renfrew Timberwolves 3-1 last Friday and Stittsville Royals 6-3 Sunday.

ARNPRIOR ONTARIO 613-623-8844

The game got a big feisty in the third period with two scraps. A pair of Renfrew defencemen, Harris Tripp and Blake Lemoine, were given early exits, as were Arnprior’s Ryan Patrick and Matt Crozier. Packers penalty-killing was crucial on this night, holding Renfrew to zero for seven tries. Arnprior outshot Renfrew 37-25. The two teams had traded players the week before, with Patrick Dick going to the Wolves and Will Fraser coming to the Packers. Dick scored three goals in his first two games with Renfrew.

ARNPRIOR 6 STITTSVILLE 3 ARNPRIOR 3, WOLVES 1 The Packers tamed their arch-rivals on their own home ice, as goals from Parker Davies and Braedon Moffat in the final stanza proved to be the difference. Renfrew drew first blood when Jared Riopelle solved Matt Couvrette 5:08 into the opening session. But that would be the only puck to sneak its way past the Arnprior goaltender, whose sterling play has been a major factor in the Packers’ ride to the top. Jake Primeau drew the Packers even on a power-play six minutes later. There was no further scoring until the third period when Davies found the back of the net at the 5:09 mark. Wolves netminder Troy Gauthier kept his team in contention. The Packers fired 14 shots his way in the final stanza while the Wolves mustered just four. Moffat put the game on ice for the Packers when he scored with 33 seconds remaining.

Mitch Parker scored two second-period goals to break a 1-1 tie, as Arnprior improved its record to 16-6-2. Taylor Collins added two quick goals early in the third, but Stittsville closed it to 5-3 before the final stanza was half over. However, Dan Weir, an addition in a trade with Perth, scored 30 seconds after the third Royals’ goal to restore Arnprior’s three-goal lead. Ben Wade had the Packers’ first-period tally. Arnprior outshot Stittsville 50-32, as Matt Couvrette earned another win in net. The Packers travel to Almonte Saturday for a 7:30 p.m. start against the third-place Thunder. They return for their first home game in over two weeks Sunday, Dec. 11, when Metcalfe of the Metro Division is in town for a 8:30 p.m. game. The Packers host Shawville next Friday, Dec. 16, after playing away at Ottawa West the night before. With files from Peter Clark

SANTA CLAUS COMES TO PAKENHAM Youth and adults alike braved the chilly weather in Pakenham on Saturday to be warmed by a visit from none other than Santa Claus himself. The North Pole resident, along with his Mrs. Claus, made Pakenham one of many area stops on the weekend. When asked for comment, Santa simply said he was just here to have fun; he already knew who’d been naughty or nice. Photos by Chris Couper

Youth

Past, present and upcoming events at the high school KATE BURMAN Co-op student

Many events are looming on the horizon at Arnprior District High School, especially with the season changing to my favourite time of year: Christmas. Coffee House was on Nov. 30 and yours truly performed for the first time. The whole day I had a butterfly marathon racing around my stomach. The first song that I performed, I swore that my leg would fall off from nerves. but then as everyone started singing along I felt a lot better. The moral of the story is to get out and do something courageous. Do something that you

haven’t done before and you just may end up surprising yourself. Dec. 16 is the Christmas semi-formal and tickets were sold out. However, it’s been moved from the Nick Smith Centre to the big gym at the school, so more tickets went on sale today (Thursday). The dance starts at 7 p.m. Get into the Christmas spirit Dec. 21 with the ADHS Music Department’s Christmas Concert. You can hear the melodious music of Junior and Senior bands and a carol or two from Red Velvet. Christmas vacation starts Friday, Dec. 23 after last bell. We can all enjoy Christmas, family, some relaxing time and then we will have to start worrying about final exams, but let’s not think about that yet!

Give a ski adventure as a Christmas gift NINA TOWNLEY Youth Corner

The holidays are quickly approaching and some of us are finding that we are rushed to get our last-minute Christmas shopping done. The Nick Smith Centre youth programs have the solution. This is our second part of our three-week holiday gift ideas. Last week we talked about our Ottawa Senators Hockey Gift Package, as well as our Collagenna Beauty Packages which are available at the Nick Smith Centre. Once a week for the next two weeks, the Arnprior Parks and Rec youth programs will be giving readers some great holiday gift ideas. This week we have a great active gift idea for the whole family to enjoy. On Feb. 3, the Nick Smith Centre youth programs are hosting another P.A day Ultimate Field Trip. We will be going to Mont Cascades Ski Hill to enjoy some fun on the slopes. Choose to ski or snowboard with your friends or family for the day. Please note that this is a club that allows youth to visit Mont Cascades Ski Hill by offering discounted rates and transportation to and from the Ski Hill. There are no programs available on the hill through the Parks and Recreation Department during trip hours. The bus will leave from the Nick Smith Centre at 8:30 a.m. and will return to the Nick Smith at approximately 530 p.m. This trip is available for participants ages 9-18. Parents are welcome to come

as well, but priority is given to youth. Through a grant from the Ministry of Health Promotion and Sport, we are able to keep bus costs low, which allows the Parks and Rec youth programs to continue to go on Ultimate Field Trips at a feasible cost. Lift pass/bus cost is $15. This trip is for all skill levels, so if you would like a chance to try a fun new winter sport, we encourage beginners to participate. Lessons and rentals are available for the day. Lessons cost a fee of $10, Rentals cost $10 and helmet rentals cost $5. Registrations for this trip will be due at the Nick Smith Centre by Friday, Jan, 27. Crafting skills are a great way to share your holiday memories. On Wednesday, Dec. 21, we will be having another M.Y. Cards N Crafts program at the Nick Smith Centre. Our creative and skilled crafting instructor Marion Young will be helping youth make holiday cards. This program encourages youth to design and construct their own holiday cards to share with their friends and family, or maybe give as a gift for this holiday season. This program runs from 6 to 8 p.m. and costs a total of $10. Register for this program by Wednesday, Dec. 14 to ensure a spot. For more Information about any of our programs or registration information, contact Kayla at the Nick Smith Centre at 613623-7301, ext. 217 or email kmenkhorst@arnprior.ca. Nina Townley is a co-op student working with Kayla Menkhorst and Don Gougeon at the Arnprior Recreation Youth program.

Entertainment

Alice a mad success KATE BURMAN Co-op student

The talented cast of performers from Arnprior District High School put on the musical Alice in Wonderland Nov. 24, 25 and 26. The cast managed to prevail against wardrobe and set malfunctions. The trial had people reaching for their necks, the tea party was madder than mad and the Palace Music Hall gang had the audi-

ence clapping right along. It is said that teamwork is the collective talents of many individuals working together toward a common goal. The play could not have gone forward without the many people who prepared the props, created the costumes, worked on the hair and make-up, managed the set and lighting, performed the live music, directed the musical, ran the backstage, and, of course, the audience, who we would be lost without. A special thanks to everyone who helped out. All in all a huge congratulations to the whole cast and crew.

BARR, Harvey In loving memory of a dear father who passed away 35 years ago, December 10th.

Thank you to family, friends, and neighbours for your support during my recent hospital stay and subsequent treatments.

Special thanks to Kenny and Leanne Gordon for the many delicious suppers, your thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated.

IN MEMORIAM

The blow was great, the shock severe, We little thought the end was near, And only those who have lost can tell, The pain of parting without farewell. More each day we miss you, father, Friends may think the wound is healed, But they little know the sorrow, That lies within our hearts concealed. Love Glen, Ken, Art, June & Judy IN MEMORIAM

ARMSTRONG In loving memory of our dear parents, Madeleine who passed away Dec. 14, 1991 and Horace who passed away December 11, 1995. Gone are the days we used to share, But deep in our hearts you are always there. The gates of memory never close, We miss them more than anyone knows.

SIDNEY In loving memory of my Always in our hearts, dear parents & brother Wendell, Miriam, Ross, Eileen, Stan, Edith and Thomas Sidney Families December 8, 1971 Theresa Sidney December 8, 2003 Mick Sidney IN December 16, 2009 MEMORIAM You gave us many gifts in life, Gifts both great and small, But most of all you gave us love, The greatest gift of all. It isn’t what we write, It isn’t what we say, It’s how we feel deep inside, As we think of you today. Always loved and sadly missed, Blanche, Emmett and Family

Madelyn Irwin Aug. 5, 1939-Dec. 11, 2001

Hi Mom, It’s hard to believe that a decade has passed since you met your brother in heaven. Since then,I’m sure you were there to greet your sister and another brother with open arms.Your caring spirit and considerable nature would want them to feel welcome. Living here can be difficult, especially without having you to turn to for answers or advice. I hear my friends speak of the strained relationships they have with their aging mothers, and it makes me wonder how we would have aged together. I can only guess. This is all too real to both Jordanne and I. We keep an open and honest relationship, and I let her live her life. Like you were with me, I don’t always agree or approve of the choices she makes. But they are hers, good or bad. She learns to live with them. I’m here to love her, not to judge her. The time seems to be passing quickly now. Have to schedule time to sit and reflect. I’ll be getting to that, soon. Just like I’ll get to trimming the rosebush and the peonies for you, too. I miss you Mom, everyday. Love, Karen xoxo 320004

ZIEBARTH In memory of Hazel Ziebarth December 7, 2008 Standing in this little country cemetery alone, Referring to the dates on your tombstone, From your beginning to your end on Earth, We noted that first came the date of your birth. We spoke of the second date with some tears, But we knew what mattered most of all, Was the dash between the years. For the dash represented all the time, That you spent upon this Earth, And now only those who loved you, Know what that little dash is worth, For it matters not how much we own, The cars, the house, the cash, What matters is how we live and love, And how we spend our dash. If we treat each other with respect, And more often wear a smile, Remembering this little dash, May only last awhile. your eulogy is being read, With your life’s actions to rehash, Would you be pleased with the things, They have to say, About how you spent your dash. Thanks for your guidance, love and great memories, Melba Cavanagh and Merlyn Ziebarth Debbie and Dave Barr Garnie and Doreen Ziebarth Eldon and Tina Ziebarth All eleven grandchildren And twenty-seven great grandchildren Which you adored
