Pedestrians worried they’ll have to stay at home unless Staye Court improved JOHN CARTER email@example.com
EMC news – There’s danger out there on Arnprior streets. Town councillors heard two appeals this week to take action to ensure pedestrians are protected from fast-moving traffic. David Thompson and Wendel Crocken attended council’s budget input session Tuesday to stress the need for improved safety on Staye Court Drive, particularly in the congested area around the fast food outlets. “There should be a stop sign there (Staye Court Drive entrance to McDonald’s) before somebody gets killed,” said Crocken. “It’s a dangerous place.” The evening before, council decided it shouldn’t, at least for now, remove the crossing guard on busy Madawaska Street because of fears for student safety (see story Page 3). The Staye Court submission was one of four at the budget meeting. Also addressing council were representatives of the Arnprior Humane Society (looking for a increase in funding) and the Arnprior and District Archives (not seeking a boost). There was also an appeal from Larry Chateauvert for council to take steps to protect local ash trees from the Emerald ash borer. In his letter to council, Thompson, who is supported in two petitions by nine businesses, 51 residents and 23 visitors, predicted more fender-benders and hit pedestrians in the area of the Daniel-Staye Court intersection if improvements aren’t made. Cars are often backed up on Staye Court Drive waiting to get into Tim Hortons and cars are pushing in and out of the M&M lot and “zooming” in and out of McDonald’s, he added. See STAYE COURT, Page 3

planned for Friday evening at Havey’s hill (see Page 19). There was some talk of relocating the event to Robert Simpson Park, but because most of the carnival activities are centred at the Nick Smith Centre it’s staying nearby. Everyone is invited.

Teachers call off walkouts, keep ban on extra-curriculars John Carter firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC news – Ontario’s public school teachers backed away from walking out of class to take part in political protests Wednesday and last Friday, but they are continuing the fight against Bill 115. And that leaves the fate of extra-curricular activities for students very much up in the air. Both public school elementary and secondary students are being urged by their unions to forego involvement in extra-curriculars for now, and perhaps as long as two years, if the provincial government doesn’t relent on its decision to impose contracts on them through Bill 115. However, as the teachers are no longer in a legal strike position, the unions can’t force
them to not participate in sports, drama, music, clubs, field trips and the like. Nevertheless, only a very few teachers have so far renewed their extra-curricular activities, although some teams have resumed play with community volunteers at the helm. Public school elementary teachers in Renfrew County and across the province also announced last week they would walk out of school Friday in a political protest. Many school boards closed the schools, expressing concern about student safety. However, at about 4 a.m. Friday, the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) ruled the walkout illegal, despite the teachers’ argument that it was within their Charter rights to hold a political protest.

Wynne strives to win Liberal leadership with Valley help Steve.email@example.com
EMC news - Attendance was strong at local Liberal leadership delegate selection meetings on the weekend, as the six candidates for Ontario Liberal Party leader vied for support. The province-wide results showed front-runners Kathleen Wynne and Sandra Pupatello still leading the pack. One of Wynneâ€™s most successful ridings was Renfrew-NipissingPembroke, which she visited Saturday at Cobdenâ€™s West Way Bar & Grill. There she met with Liberal party supporters, including some local voting delegates. The Don Valley West MPP also had an opportunity to meet with local teachers, angry over the controversial implementation of Bill 115 to impose contracts on them. In Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Saturday, 88 card-carrying Liberals were eligible to vote, of which 40 did. Seventy per cent, or 28 votes, went to Wynne and another 25 per cent (or 10 votes) to Pupatello. Single votes went to St. Paulâ€™s MPP Eric Hoskins and former MPP and MP Gerard Kennedy, who finished second to Dalton McGuinty in the last Liberal leadership race. Following a coin toss in Kennedyâ€™s favour, Wynne has 11 local voting delegates, Pupatello four and Kennedy one. The other candidates are Mississauga South MPP Charles Sousa and Mississauga Erindale MPP and former transportation minister Harinder Takhar. Local delegates at the leadership convention Jan. 25 to 27 in Toronto will include Derek
Derek Nighbor, who was a strong second to John Yakabuski in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke in the 2003 provincial election, introduces Liberal Party leadership candidate Kathleen Wynne. Nighbor, who lost a close Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke race to Conservative John Yakabuski in 2003, was an early Wynne supporter. The other â€˜Wynneâ€™ delegates are Lucille and Patrick Nighbor, Meredith Caplan Jamieson, Barry Robinson, Izett McBride, Gail Richardson, Maggie Conway, Louise Edmonds, Kevin Dunbar and Rebecca Jean Dunbar. A total of 1,837 Liberal Party members cast ballots last weekend, including Nighbor, who grew up in Pembroke and now works in Toronto for Food and Consumer Products of Canada. In provincial-wide delegate selection, Pupatello received 27.44 per cent of the total, Wynne 25.20, Kennedy 13.99, Takhar 13.28, Sousa 10.78 and Hoskins 5.66. â€œIâ€™m supporting Kathleen because sheâ€™s a proven leader,â€? said Nighbor. â€œSheâ€™s compassionate, sheâ€™s thoughtful, she knows her issues. Talking to people here in the riding, itâ€™s
clear, as minister of municipal affairs and housing, transportation, aboriginal affairs and transportation, sheâ€™s always been up on the issues. â€œSheâ€™s always been approachable, accountable and responsible. At this stage, the Ontario Liberal Party needs a little bit of renewal, we need some ideas, and I think Kathleen is going to be a big part of bringing that to bear.â€? As many Liberal Party supporters know, the 59-year-old Wynne is married to Jane Routhwaite. Wynne also has three children and two grandchildren. Lake Dore resident Tom Adamchick, who is president of the local federal Liberal Party Riding Association, said he likes Wynneâ€™s candidacy for premier largely because many of her cabinet portfolios have involved issues that resonate in Renfrew County. Another delegate is Eganville resident Meredith Caplan Jamieson whose family has
been closely tied to the world of politics. Her brother (David) is a former member of Premier McGuintyâ€™s cabinet, while her mother (Elinor) was a provincial and federal Member of Parliament from 1985 to 2004. Until last May both Meredith and husband Rob Jamieson were members of the Liberal Partyâ€™s federal executive. After getting to know Wynne over the last several years, Meredith says the Don Valley MPP is a real consensus-builder who brings people to the table. â€œSheâ€™s a politician for all people - urban, rural, minority, majority. She has an amazing way of connecting with people,â€? said Jamieson. Another delegate, Gail Richardson of Whitewater Region, is also supporting Wynne. She
cites Wynneâ€™s political record and ability to communicate in a direct, precise, approachable and friendly fashion as strengths. â€œAdd to that the wisdom she has shown in all her portfolios,â€? said Richardson. â€œTo me it was a no-brainer (to support her). It was obvious for me.â€? The first candidate in the leadership race was Glen Murray, the Toronto Centre MPP and former Winnipeg mayor, who was also in Cobden last Saturday. He withdrew from the race to back Wynne. Murray, a good friend and colleague of Wynneâ€™s for years, said, â€œShe was doing better than I was, and realized I could give her a boost and help her by throwing my support and my supporters behind
her.â€? Heading into the later stages of the leadership campaign, Murray said Wynne is conciliatory, thoughtful and full of integrity. â€œI think she brings some remarkable skills to the premierâ€™s office.â€? Before a gathering of a few dozen at the West Way Bar & Grill, Nighbor introduced Wynne while mentioning that being in Cobden demonstrated her commitment to rural and eastern Ontario. He also referred to her as accountable, compassionate â€œand tough as nails when she needs to be.â€? â€œI know weâ€™ve got momentum, and thereâ€™s lots that can happen on the convention floor. See WYNNE, page 5

Environmental issues front and centre in McNab-Braeside gull population, which are not addressed by the provincial government. “Rural Ontario including the Council of McNab-Braeside has been quick to point out the inequities of the province’s approach and seek justice for our residents. “Another case where the Township was able to lighten the financial burden on residents while continuing our commitment to protect our environment was Council’s response to the Provincial Policy of ‘no development on Karst without studies’. “Following the County of Renfrew and the excellent work of Mssrs. Howarth and Cheeseman, McNab-Braeside adopted a mitigated policy of exempting residential development where there is a minimum of a metre of overburden in place indicating immature Karst. This policy coupled with building codes, well and septic inspections reduces both probability and risk associated with light residential uses to an acceptable level while protecting residents from excessive development costs. “It seems to be McNab-Braeside’s fate to experience either to much rainfall or not enough. 2012 saw local farmers struggle through drought conditions that resulted in failed corn crops and above average livestock slaughter. It is evident that the Agricorp programs in place are poorly designed to meet needs of small or niche farmers important to local food production and maintaining diversity in the agriculture sector of McNab-Braeside’s economy. “In the face of increasingly extreme weather, Council continues to be acutely aware of the importance of upgraded drainage solutions. During 2012, the Bandy’s Creek municipal drain project was completed and drainage solutions for both the Melray and Glen Meadows subdivisions were approved under the capable leadership of Planning Advisory Committee Chair, Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie. “Of major note for 2012, after over two years of negotiations, is the final agreement between the Township and the Province in defining McNab-Braesides Environmental Protection zones (Natural Hazard areas) as part of the provincial approval of McNab-Braeside’s 2010 Comprehensive Zoning Bylaw.
McNab-Braeside councillors begin to review quarry expansion studies EMC-news – McNab-Braeside council began the long process Tuesday of reviewing studies and peer reviews related to the Miller application for a rezoning to allow a proposed expansion, including a permanent asphalt plant, at the Braeside quarry. The Planning Advisory Committee reviewed the noise and air emissions studies and were
hoping to also get to the blasting and traffic studies during the three-hour afternoon session. The three other studies will be reviewed at special 3 p.m. meetings Feb. 12 and March 12. The sessions are open to the public, but do not allow for public comments or questions. However, the township is accepting written questions and comments.
pens, but it’s more important to continue to govern and get things done. Alluding to the teachers sitting in the same room, she added: “We have some bridges to build.” Meanwhile, she says the focus of the Liberal Party needs to include balancing the budget and fiscal responsibility, and that “social justice is as much a part of our DNA as it has always been.” As a candidate for premier, she said she has the government experience, disposition and skills to bring people together. “I’m looking forward to being the first female premier of the Province of Ontario,” she said to applause. She also said she believes Ontarians don’t vote based on gender, sexual orientation, race, or rural or urban status, but that they vote for competency and skill. “And that’s how I want to be chosen,” said Wynne.

“But the first step was to get delegates from each of the ridings, and you guys have done just a fabulous job, and I’m very, very grateful,” added Wynne. “I’m grateful because I want to go on to represent you … We can go a couple of ways. We can be more divided and continue on a path of rural versus urban, and buy into that kind of divisiveness. “We all want great education. We all want great health care. We all need to invest in infrastructure, so business will come to Ontario, so that business comes to all parts of the province. And we’re only going to do that if we work together.” Wynne also spoke out about the importance of needing the Liberals to continue to govern. She said she’s ready for an election, if it hap-

“McNab-Braeside, as a community, continues to express its concern for our natural heritage through the extensive household participation in the Township’s recycling program, the many residents that participate in Adopt a Road programs, as well as both the spring and autumn Braeside Beach clean-ups. “The year 2013 is lining up to have its share of environmental issues. Roadside litter continues to mar our landscape; we look forward to the results of the enforcement pilot previ-
ously slated for 2012. “Potential environmental impacts will be under discussion in association with the Millar zoning application. “During 2013, we look forward to Councillor Brad McIlquham’s leadership in establishing an Environmental Advisory Committee, which will be an important public vehicle in addressing the environmental issues outlines above,” Campbell said. To be continued
EMC-news – McNab-Braeside must continue to protect its rural lifestyle, environment and heritage, while proving it can be sustainable as a municipality, Mayor Mary Campbell says in her State of the Township address. The address, which both looks back and forward, was given Jan. 8, at council’s first meeting of 2012 Noting the many challenges faced by the township, Campbell said she is “immensely proud” of how McNab-Braesiders, council and staff have worked together to meet them in a constructive manner. “The strength of character in the people of this municipality continues to shine no matter what the obstacles,” she said. Campbell list three main resident priorities: • protect natural infrastructure and environment; • maintain rural lifestyle and sense of community; • promote heritage. She also listed five areas in which the township has to prove it is a sustainable municipality in the eyes of the Province of Ontario – social, economic, environmental, cultural awareness and the ability to be a healthy community. Following are excerpts from her address, starting with the need to protect natural infrastructure and develop environmental sustainability. “Environmentally, 2012 was marked by Bobolinks, Meadow Larks, Karst, drainage and drought. Bobolinks and Meadow Larks were added to the list of Endangered Species and suddenly every resident, on open land, with a severance application was confronted with the requirement for an Environmental Impact Study. “The Bobolink/Meadowlark more than any previous species such as Wood Turtles revealed the extent to which rural residents bear the financial burden of maintaining Ontario’s natural environment. “The Bobolink and Meadow Lark illustrated the extent to which rural residents are called to task when there are much more significant environmental threats, in this case, local agricultural shift from livestock to cash cropping, introduction of wild turkeys, increase in sea

Renfrew nixes pool project Steve Newman email@example.com
EMC news â€“ Arnprior will continue to have the only indoor pool in the south end of Renfrew County for the foreseeable future. A Renfrew council decision Monday means no pool and second ice pad are coming to the town in the short term, and perhaps never. With 80 people packed into council chambers, Coun. Andrew Evansâ€™ motion to support the Ma-Te-Way Park expansion project was defeated 5-2. â€œNice retirement town weâ€™re going to have,â€? exclaimed Renfrew businessman Jeff Taylor as the crowd began filing out of the chambers. It was town councilâ€™s second council vote since the late 1980s that nixed community efforts to build a pool. The earlier vote resulted in support for an arena and community hall, with plans to phase in the pool in 1992. The support of Evans and Mayor Bill Ringrose Monday was no enough as the majority of council felt a pool and second ice surface complex, with a price tag of $18.3 million, would be too great a financial burden for taxpayers and the town. The likely lack of grant money from the federal and provincial governments was a factor in
the thinking of council members who rejected expansion at this time. But debt load and the inevitable hike of taxes to afford an estimated $400,000 or more in operating expenses per year were the stronger arguments. The motion indicated the expansion project would require a municipal capital expansion of about $4 million and an additional operating deficit per year of about $500,000. Coun. Jim Miller said he believed surrounding municipalities should take equal responsibility for building an expanded facility that their residents would also use. Coun. Gail Cole, who said the expected tax increase would be 10 to 12 per cent to back the facility expansion, wondered why neighbouring municipalities of Greater Madawaska, Horton and McNab-Braeside couldnâ€™t support the facility, given that each of those municipalities has a higher median family income than Renfrew. Multiple-municipality support for a regional recreational complex would be wonderful, she said. â€œJust think, no more disputes about user fees. â€œHereâ€™s an idea, convince your respective councils to get off their butts and act on your wishes. We might be able to provide a sort of regional facility that would benefit the entire area.â€?
Teachers call off walkouts Continued from front
The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (EFTO) advised its members not to walk out, so instead of picketing along Madawaska Boulevard in front of East Side Marioâ€™s Friday morning, Arnprior area teachers were back in class. But it was too late for the school board to officially reopen the schools. Adding to the confusion was a freezing rain warning that prompted bus cancellations, keeping many students away from school anyway. Students who did show up were given activities to keep them busy and the teachers were paid as if it were a regular day. In light of the Labour Relations Board ruling, members of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation (OSSTF) also called off a walkout planned for Wednesday. However, Renfrew County public high school teachers were scheduled to hold a rally after school, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. outside the constituency office of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski in Pembroke. The teachers were to be joined by members of other labour unions including the ETFO and the United Steelworkers. The OSSTF said its members all over Ontario would be holding protest rallies after school at offices of MPPs, both Liberal and Progressive Conservative. In Ottawa, the teachers were targeting the offices of Premier Dalton McGuinty, Bob Chiarelli and Lisa MacLeod and Upper Canada Board teachers were to be in front of
MPP Randy Hillierâ€™s office in Perth. The protesters were to include teachers and education support workers, but not educators from the Catholic system, as its teachers reached deals and avoided having contracts imposed on them. Before the Labour Board ruling derailed the political protests, the Renfrew County School Board issued a news release, stressing its schools would be open as usual both last Friday and Wednesday. Meanwhile, a meeting of OSSTF local bargaining unit presidents Jan. 9 made it clear that despite the efforts of some teachers and parents to get extra-curricular activities back on track, the union is against any compromise in that area. â€œOSSTF members have told their local and provincial leadership that should the Minister of Education impose working conditions on them, removing their ability to have the union engage in free collective bargaining on their behalf, that they would refuse to engage in voluntary and extracurricular activities,â€? said OSSTF president Ken Coran. The bargaining unit leaders reaffirmed the decision to withhold voluntary and extracurricular activities and replace that with participation in a public education campaign highlighting â€œthe loss of the right to free collective bargaining and the loss of democracy and its implications for all Ontarians.â€? The representatives also agreed to reconvene the meeting to discuss next steps after the Ontario Liberal Leadership Convention Jan. 27.
If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Town of Arnprior before the proposed Zoning By-law amendment is adopted, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party. Note: One of the purposes of the Planning Act is to provide for planning processes that are open, accessible, timely and efďŹ cient. Accordingly, all written submissions, documents, correspondence, e-mails or other communications (including your name and address) form part of the public record and will be disclosed/made available by the Town to such persons as the Town sees ďŹ t, including anyone requesting such information.

Protect your personal information when venturing online As Ontarians embrace new technologies such as smartphones and tablets, the provinceâ€™s privacy commissioner urges users to beware. In a recent news release, Ontario information and privacy commissioner Dr. Ann Cavoukian asks citizens to be diligent in protecting their online privacy and personal information to avoid identity theft and fraud. Cavoukian describes online privacy as a growing concern, and offers Ontarians five easy New Yearâ€™s resolutions to improve their online habits. The steps she proposes are simple. Some might call them common sense. Yet many people seem easily caught up in
the immediacy of todayâ€™s communications and can easily click and post their way into a world of hurt. Cavoukian says people need to understand what they are sharing online and who can actually see it. She encourages people to review their social network privacy settings regularly. Many applications now add time and geolocation data to photos, thereby allowing anyone to track your location. â€œRemember â€“ these settings can change at any time without your consent, so the onus is on you, the user, to be aware,â€? she says. Cavoukian also stresses that once you post
something online it is very difficult to erase, so be cautious what personal information you share. Whether making a purchase or joining a social network, consider carefully the amount of information you share. Cavoukian offers five Ws to consider every time you post personal information: Who wants it and who will have access to it? Why do they want it? What will it be used for? Where will your information be stored? When will your information be used and when will it be discarded? It is also important to use unique passwords that are difficult to decrypt.
And, as with any service, carefully read the fine print because permissions can be buried within the terms and conditions for companies to share your personal information and online habits without your knowledge. The Information and Privacy Commissioner is appointed by, and reports to, the Ontario Legislative Assembly, and is independent of the government of the day. The commissionâ€™s mandate also includes helping to educate the public about access and privacy issues. We all pay for this advice through our tax dollars. To not heed it could be costly, indeed.
All athletic clubs should have defibrillators, they save lives To the Editor: Attention all athletic club members. In Ottawa this past week, there have been three members who had suffered heart attacks. I myself had joined a club in Arnprior 33 months ago and asked the staff if there was a defibrillator on the premises. Their answer was that they were in the process of purchasing one. Now I do not know how long the purchasing process of a defibrillator takes, but 33 months is a long process.
Personally I think that it should be mandatory for all athletic clubs to have a defibrillator at their club and their staff properly trained on them. Please all members and future members of athletic clubs, follow up with the owners and staff to ensure that they seriously consider having a defibrillator in their club. It can save a life. Concerned member. M.J. Currie Arnprior
Process lacks risk assessment To the Editor: Re: Miller proposed industrial complex in the middle of a rural residential area â€“ this does not make sense. Millerâ€™s plans to build a permanent asphalt plant, permanent cement plant and relocate equipment storage, maintenance garages and office complex, all in the Braeside Quarry, are irresponsible. In a fragile eco-environment (world-wide protected Alvar, wetlands, water regeneration) on the Braeside ridge, their plans for a petrochemical industrial complex puts 25 immediate homes in severe jeopardy (air, water and noise pollution) and another 85 at risk due to contamination of their drinking water source. The area of the Braeside ridge is a fractured, crevassed, limestone Karst area that serves as the source of drinking water for wells of over 100 homes. Risk to this water source comes from any and all spills, leaks, fires and gas contaminations that are readily associated with a petrochemical complex sit-
ting directly above the aquifer (i.e. floor of quarry). Since this aquifer eventually drains into the Ottawa River, this too is at risk of contamination. Air pollution, with proven carcinogens, will destroy the tranquility and air quality for the whole ridge area (golf course, cottages, permanent homes). A â€œtaller stackâ€? just spreads the pollutants to all of Braeside and even down wind to Arnprior. Dilution of pollution is not the solution. The soft limestone of the quarry is not suitable for highway grade asphalt, so crushed stone, as well as tar and petrochemicals for asphalt, plus fuel to run the blast furnaces, all have to be trucked to and from the quarry. Chemicals, fuels and equipment storage only increase risks of fire, accidental spills and natural disasters (think earthquake). And this would all sit on top of a vulnerable aquifer.

LETTERS To the editor: This letter is in response to Thomas Charbonneau’s letter in the Dec. 20 Chronicle Guide EMC, ‘Ultimate tragedy of Newtown would be no change to gun laws’. There are several misrepresentations in Mr. Charbonneau’s letter. Before I address those issues. I want to state that what happened at Newtown was an unthinkable tragedy committed by an apparently mentally unbalanced person. My heartfelt sympathies go out to those who lost loved ones there. To really understand the issue of gun ownership, one must realize that the United States is a republic, as opposed to what we are used to in Canada, a federal constitutional monarchy. When the U.S. was founded the Founding Fathers insisted that the power be held by the people, and that those people had an obligation to hold its government to account. This is where Mr. Charbonneau misrepresents the intent of the Second Amendment. When the States were allowed to form militias, he states: “These militias are army formations under the control of the state government. They operate as our own military units do, as aids to ... or support of the civil power.” This is false. While militias might aid in the defence of the U.S. if they were being attacked by outside forces, this was not the intent of the Founding Fathers. I offer the following quotes to back my claim. “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. When-
ever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it. What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.” Thomas Jefferson to James Madison “I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” George Mason, co-author of the Second Amendment during Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788. As can be plainly seen by the above quotes, the right to bear arms by the people was to protect them from their own government first, and foremost. The following quote shows that this is still the intent. The defence of the country from both its own government and of outside forces. Then-senator John F. Kennedy recognized the intent of the founding fathers’ “fears of governmental tyranny” and “security of the nation” in his statement Know Your Lawmakers, Guns, April 1960, p. 4 (1960). The problem with Mr. Charbonneau’s argument is that when the right to bear arms is defined as he implies, what follows is that firearms are meant to be held either by the government and/or military and not the common people. This is a fa-
vourite refrain of those people who would like to see civilian ownership of firearms banned and privately held firearms confiscated. I offer the following quotes, one American and one Canadian. “Our main agenda is to have all guns banned. We must use whatever means possible. It doesn’t matter if you have to distort the facts or even lie. Our task of creating a socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.” Sara Brady Chairman, Handgun Control Inc., to Senator Howard Metzenbaum The National Educator, January 1994, “I came to Ottawa with the firm belief that the only people in this country who should have guns are police officers and soldiers.” Allan Rock, Canada’s Minister of Justice Maclean’s ‘Taking aim on guns’, 1994 April 25, Vol.107 Issue 17, This is a scenario that no people that cherish their rights and freedoms should entertain, nor allow their government to enforce. For Mr. Charbonneau to imply that those who defend the rights of private ownership of firearms are “ignorant” is in itself an ignorant comment. Let’s address the root causes of what makes people commit these types of crimes, and focus on the criminals and not the guns of law-abiding citizens. Nathan Harris Admaston-Bromley
Asphalt plant too risky to be placed on Braeside Ridge Continued from Page 8
Do the taxpayers of Arnprior get stuck again (think ambulance building). Who pays for a water treatment plant and safe drinking water distribution for the Braeside ridge area once the inevitable water contamination of the aquifer happens? With no clay or soil containment over the crevassed limestone of the pit, any leaks, spills, fires, fuel accidents go right into the water table. There is no way to clean up or prevent this (remember the

Chief’s protest should prompt discussion about values To the Editor: I read a full page in the Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC (page 22, Jan. 10) on land claims negotiations for Eastern Ontario and in the bottom right hand corner a small article giving a heads-up to travelers that blockades may delay their progress. It was of great interest to me that the issue being dealt with in Ottawa was basically covered one time on one page in the local paper. Chief Theresa Spence has been living on subsistent sustenance for one month. Over these days I have spent some time at Victoria Island, read news articles, Facebook entries and comments. The words and actions are the same old rhetoric I have heard for 30 years since I became aware of Canada’s first peoples and what it really meant to be a Canadian. Both sides, aboriginal and non-aboriginal, hold beliefs and attitudes that are divisive perpetuating stories about the other side such as
how evil Mr. Harper is and the perpetual image of the self-serving Indian. All the while a woman sits waiting in her teepee, calling upon an ancient tradition to talk to the people who she believes holds the core to her pain. She is calling them to come and sit with her and others who know the source and consequences of this pain. It is not to participate in a settlement negotiation such as the NHL have undertaken. It is not a battle of wills and words. It is so much more, involving coming together as human beings, spending the time to connect at a spiritual level, feeling each other’s pain and knowing when you leave that space you will not be able to do or act the same way you did before you came to that place. Theresa Spence has said her pain is so great she can no longer live with it. She experiences and she feels it in her community (Youtube interview with Chief Spence on Dec. 21).
She has described her existence in this place called Canada as that of a slave. Many of us might find that hard to imagine that in Canada people would feel like slaves. Yet many of us or our ancestors came to Canada to escape enslavement where our thoughts and choices were no longer our own. Many of us still suffer the consequences of enslavement, such as fear of speaking out, of being unable to find joy in the everyday, in not having faith in our leaders to consider us in their decisions, living in constant fear of losing everything we have and feeling powerless to prevent it. Theresa Spence is calling us to the teepee. She knows that what is happening on a political level is continuing to enslave all of us, not only the First Nations people, but all the people of Canada. Think about it. How free are we to swim in the rivers in our environments much less
be able to drink it? How much do we benefit from the great wealth that is being obtained by the commercial gathering and sale of our resources? A very difficult conversation is needed here that is much broader than land claims. One that acknowledges the pain and sharing our realities, reconciling by being accountable to our choices and changing through the transformation that starts from our very core. This will not happen in a day, but it starts in a moment of revelation. It will not happen on Parliament Hill but with each Canadian voicing what kind of relations we want with our neighbours and be willing to treat everyone the way we want to be treated. Theresa Dunn Arnprior (Dunn is national co-chair of a movement to establish a Department of Peace in Canada.)
Vision, respect will help First Nations, not confrontation
Corrections EMC news – In last week’s Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC, the story about the Lanark new year’s baby incorrectly spelled the name of the community where the family lives. The picturesque hamlet on the Mississippi River between Pakenham and Almonte is, of course, Blakeney, not Blakney. The newspaper apologizes for the error. A story about the Arnprior Regional Health Christmas tree-lighting Dec. 13 wrongly described Allison Rabideau as Matthew Wereley’s wife. She is his sister and a granddaughter of Dorcas Woermke, who was on hand to light the tree in honour of her late husband, Irvin. The Chronicle Guide EMC apologizes for the error.
societal framework as partners not adversaries. Nothing can be accomplished if, as and when anarchy is promulgated. To those who advocate provocation via boycotts, violence and other illegal activities, I have no respect for that kind of behaviour and never will. The Idle no More movement does not advocate negative activity and maintains that change must be accomplished peacefully, but from past history we know that there are some radicals who will hijack this wellmeaning movement and create an excuse to cause discontent and confrontation. But change is needed in making the quality life on aboriginal lands meaningful, so that education,
sanitation and other aspects of life are available for all of our citizens regardless of race, colour, or creed. The biggest agent of change is to scrap the Indian Act. This 19th century legislation was, and continues to be, a mechanism for a welfare state as well as a vehicle for cultural control over our First Nations peoples. The grievances surrounding such activity are long and far too numerous. Following a repeal of this legislation, what are presently reserve lands should be given the status of municipalities with all of the rights, privileges, accountability and responsibilities that go with managing such status. While this may sound overly simplistic to some, it really is not. I
know of many aboriginal communities who treat their domains in somewhat of a municipal model and from what I have witnessed, this concept is working quite well with sound business plans, excellent leadership and vision. Unfortunately, I have also visited reserves that are deplorably managed and have little or no vision except to whine and complain. Having said that, we have towns, etc. that fail to make the grade too, so we should we ought not throw too many stones from our glass walled houses. The Government of Canada can and must address aboriginal issues with dignity and fairness. But this won’t happen as long as there is mis-
trust, a continuance of ignorance, anger and weak ministerial leadership on the part of the federal government. This also holds true for some of our aboriginal leaders. Feathers, round dances, drums and singing are wonderful cultural activities, however, they do not build schools, create sanitation and health facilities to the standards every citizen of our land expects. In addition, grassroots movements have their place in our social framework but they should be pushing the forward button sensibly rather than mere ‘idling’. Thomas Charbonneau Arnprior

To the Editor: As a Canadian of European descent, I do not harbour any negative ethnocentric beliefs towards our indigenous peoples. I am an admirer of our First Nations culture and what it represents. I also realize that all is not ‘right’ within their domains and many of our aboriginal people face difficulties that need to be corrected. The time is right to address them and this has become more of a reality with activities like the Idle no More movement. This great country has the resources to correct problems where they are desperately needed. But this must be accomplished within our

Are Gray Partridge on the rebound? EMC lifestyle – Over the years we have experienced a number of changes in populations of local plants and animals. Some formerly rare species, such as Bald Eagles, have become surprisingly common. Others, such as Loggerhead Shrikes, have alarmingly declined. Foreign species have arrived and thrived, with some, Purple Loosestrife a notable example, finally falling into balance with native species. Others, such as Zebra Mussels, may have not yet had their day of glory. While those two foreign species arrived with indirect help from humans, others were brought here intentionally. Several members of the grouse family were deliberately released into our area with hopes they would eventually produce a population large enough to be hunted. Wild Turkeys were never here historically but were native to southwestern Ontario. However, Ring-necked Pheasants and Gray Partridge were brought here from Asia and Europe. Gray Partridge were released in Ontario a number of times. The first was in 1909 when six birds were let go

This covey of Gray Partridge was recently encountered near Kinburn.
near Brantford. Between then and 1938, the year of the final release, nearly 4,000 were released. For a while the partridges did quite well, with populations booming near Brantford and through eastern Ontario including our region; by the late 1960s the eastern population was among the highest in the world. During the 1970s and early 1980s one regularly encountered groups of Gray Partridges (back then called ‘Hungarian Partridges’) between Renfrew and Carleton Place. Fields near the Arnprior Airport and along the Dwyer Hill Road were especially good sites, with winter the best season for viewing the tiny birds because the birds
conspicuously ran across snowy fields and flocks fed on seeds along the shoulders of rural roads. But then their numbers began to drop. On our local PakenhamArnprior Christmas Bird Count, a total of 393 Gray Partridge were tallied on the 10 counts held between 1983 and 1992. But between 1993 and 2011 - a period involving 19 counts - only 36 individuals were recorded. Interestingly, Wild Turkeys were not present on the count until 1999 when 10 were seen. Their numbers quickly grew, with no fewer than 2,917 recorded on counts from 2005 to 2012 (669 were tallied on the 2012 count alone). Another interesting trend involves our only native grouse: between 2005 and present, 145 Ruffed Grouse were tallied on
the counts. On the same number of counts prior to the appearance of Wild Turkeys, 285 were found. In case you were wondering, participation on the count has increased in recent years; with better coverage, species counts should be biased toward higher, not lower, numbers. Thus, whether or not the introduction of turkeys has had a negative effect on their much smaller relatives is an open question. Despite the downward trend, on the recent Boxing Day count, 33 Gray Partridge were tallied. And recently readers have reported small groups near Stewartville and Kanata. Is it possible this species is making a comeback? Perhaps for our smallest partridge, the future is not clear, just gray!

APFA: proposed changes endanger safety, wildlife EMC news – Sweeping changes to the Ontario Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act could lead to ecological warfare in Ontario communities, the Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals (APFA) warns. The association maintains that deregulations (called efficiencies by the government) will remove important processes in place that increase safety and prevent accidents, provide alternatives to lethal enforcement in conflict situations and, at times, end needless slaughter of young and at-risk wildlife. “Municipalities are beginning to look at co-existence models as a way to handle wildlife conflict,” explains APFA spokesman Adrian Nelson. “But if the Ministry of
Natural Resources successfully removes restraints from the utilization of hunters and trappers, interest in co-existence will drop dramatically.” Ontario municipalities currently require a permit from MNR prior to hiring a hunter to kill wildlife they deem problematic. Co-existence models are proving successful with various species – coyotes in Niagara Falls and beavers in Cornwall, as examples. In these models, education, enforcement and non-lethal measures are put in place to ensure a healthy ecosystem and end wildlife conflict. Public consultation is being accepted until Monday, Jan. 21.

Fire claims almost new snowmobile-trail groomer Derek Dunn email@example.com
SUBMITTED, GREG VELDHUIZEN
Flames engulf the snowmobile trail groomer owned by the West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association on Dec. 31. The driver escaped unharmed, but it was a close call.
Dog, its rescuers stranded on river
CAR LOANS at
Derek Dunn firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC news â€“ Two people intent on saving a dog on the Ottawa River found themselves in need of rescuing last weekend. The two people spotted a dog from at about the midway point of the river near Ferry Road in the Fitzroy area on Sunday morning. They decided to push an aluminum boat out to save the dog, but ended up getting stuck when the ice broke beneath them. Thatâ€™s when a woman on shore, near the Quyon Ferry ramp, called 911 for help. Ottawa ďŹ reďŹ ghters arrived on scene at about 11:30 a.m., reported spokesman Marc Messier, to see two people and the dog stranded in the boat. â€œNobody was in distress,â€? Messier said. â€œThey got the dog, but couldnâ€™t get the boat turned around.â€? The emergency crew pulled out its Fortuna, a large canoe-like boat with open ends for easy access. The crew was tethered and decked out in Mustang survival suits. Still, one fell through to the knee during the rescue. All were pulled to shore safely. Rural sector Chief Chris Burke said it is impossible to judge the safety of the river based on weather conditions. Currents move in different directions in different locations, affecting the thickness of the ice. Last weekend was warm, but even if it wasnâ€™t Burke advises against going out to rescue an animal. â€œMy best advice is to say: They are smart enough to get back on their own,â€? he said. Burke, who lives along the river in Dunrobin, recalls a number of similar occurrences on the river; not all of them have ended happily. â€œDonâ€™t go on the ice,â€? he said. â€œYou are putting your life at risk without proper equipment or experience.â€? Messier said it is understandable that owners worry over their petâ€™s safety; that dogs should be on a leash when near waterways; but that it might not be the last time a call like this comes in.

EMC news â€“ When Greg Veldhuizen reached the road after many hours of grooming snowmobile trails, he happened to look back through the cabin window to see plumes of black smoke. Then the ďŹ‚ames. â€œFire, I thought,â€? said the president and groomer operator of the West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association. â€œI reached for the extinguisher and emptied. Then after about four or ďŹ ve seconds the ďŹ‚ames came back. Thatâ€™s when I got out and called 911.â€? It was Dec. 31, at about 11 a.m. Veldhuizen had been grooming since 4:30 a.m., a typical day for him, when he emerged onto Canon Smith Drive. The groomer machine was purchased just two years ago, and has never overheated in the past. So operating it for a long period of time wasnâ€™t to blame. It was designed for long periods in the woods and ďŹ elds throughout areas such as West Carleton. â€œWeâ€™ve had no problems with it in the past,â€? he said. â€œThis is the ďŹ rst time.â€? It was an early start to the snowmobiling season, an activity enjoyed by about 500 area residents. Already the machine had logged hundreds of hours over its lifetime. But when a machine decides to have an electrical ďŹ re, as is what happened in this case, it doesnâ€™t matter how robust the rest of the vehicle is. The damage is set at $180,000, with insurance covering it all. Because an electrical ďŹ re is such a rarity, Veldhuizen doesnâ€™t anticipate the associationâ€™s
premiums will be jacked up. The driver wasnâ€™t hurt. He wasnâ€™t even that worried, knowing diesel vehicles donâ€™t explode. As for hopping back in again when the new one arrives in the next few days? Veldhuizen â€“ and his wife â€“ will have no trouble with that. â€œSure. Why not? Itâ€™s not dangerous.â€? The association and its groomer play a vital role in keeping area trails intact. Good trails mean fewer snowmobilers are wandering off to possibly dangerous destinations. Good trails mean those who are passing through West Carleton to tourism destinations like Calabogie can breathe a little easier knowing that a formal organization is looking out for their safety. But the association is important in another way. Being a member of the West Carleton Snowmobile Trails Association means you can legally ride on the trails. It means you made your contribution, the $210 membership fee, to ensure trails for everyone to enjoy. Those who donâ€™t belong to the association run the risk of getting a $240 ďŹ ne from police; or even a $120 trespassing ticket from ďŹ eld patrol ofďŹ cer. Just recently a ďŹ eld patrol ofďŹ cer, who is a member of the association, stopped 25 snowmobilers in the Constance Bay area. Eight didnâ€™t have a permit. â€œThey will spend $8,000 to $10,000 for a snowmobile, then use the excuse that a $210 membership is too expensive,â€? Veldhuizen said.

Beware dangerous ice, warns fire department EMC news â€“ After mild temperatures and rain in recent days past, local ice conditions may be compromised, warn Arnprior fire officials. Fire Chief John Okum cautions that many factors can affect the condition of ice on lakes and rivers. â€œIce conditions may not be consistent, with ice thickness and quality varying from location to location,â€? he says. â€œWith recent freeze/thaw cycles and the recent rain, this may cause existing ice to weaken as well as water to push up resulting in layered ice.â€? It is also the important to remember that Ontario Power Generation operates hydro electric dams on both the Madawaska and Ottawa River systems resulting in regular water flows, which can also affect ice conditions.
The public should consider staying off all ice until a significant period of cold weather has passed. Ice thickness should be checked to determine if it is safe. The following are recommended ice thicknesses that should be considered: â€˘ walking/skating - 15-20 centimetres (6-8 inches) of clear blue ice; â€˘ snowmobilers - 25 centimetres (10 inches) of clear blue ice; â€˘ light vehicles - 30 centimetres (12 inches) or more of clear blue ice. These thicknesses should be doubled if the ice is white or opaque. The Ministry of Natural Resources issued a similar warning this week, noting ice can be deceiving and urging ice fishermen to play it safe.
Ice not safe, snowmobilers warned EMC news â€“ The OPP and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) remind snowmobilers that no ice can be considered to be 100 per cent safe to ride on a snowmobile. This is especially true in early winter when ice is newly forming, during any prolonged period of thaw or rain, and late in the season after ice begins deteriorating from milder temperatures. To avoid unnecessary risks, the OPP and OFSC recommend that snowmobilers stick to available, land-based OFSC trails whenever possible. OFSC clubs provide many trails that avoid water crossings altogether and also provide many bridges and culverts to pass over known water crossings safely. If you do make the personal choice to risk travelling on ice by snowmobile, wait until a
marked stake line is in place and cross only when you can follow it directly from shore to shore, without stopping on the ice. While ice crossing is never a sure thing, snowmobilers can also reduce their risk by: â€˘ checking ice thickness and quality before riding onto any frozen water; â€˘ understanding that ice conditions may vary from day to day, from hour to hour and from place to place; â€˘ never travelling on ice alone, at night or while impaired; â€˘ avoiding slushy ice, untracked ice, or ice near moving water or dock bubblers; â€˘ watching out for obstacles like rocks, stumps, docks, ice roads and fishing huts; â€˘ wearing a buoyant snowmobile suit and carrying ice picks.

OPP issue travelling auction warning EMC news – The OPP’s Anti-Rackets Branch has issued a reminder to the public of the potential risks involved with purchasing items from travelling auction companies. “The public, when possible, should always confirm the accuracy and authenticity of appraisals accompanying high-priced items offered at travelling auctions before a
purchase is made,” says an OPP news release. “Would-be purchasers should also ensure that they have read and understood all of the fine print information associated with the auction company before they buy any item.” The OPP cautions that there may be details in the fine print that state the appraisal amounts are replace-
ment amounts only for insurance purposes and this information should not be relied upon as an accurate current value of the item. There may also be policies that disallow refunds or returns of items. If you suspect you or someone you know has been a victim of fraudulent activities, contact your local police or CrimeStoppers at 1-800222-8477 (TIPS).
Travel disruption warning issued again EMC news – The OPP has again issued an advisory warning the motoring public to be aware of potential traffic delays when undertaking travel planning in the days ahead. Idle no More protest activities may delay the normal flow of traffic on highways, including 400-series highways, and on other transportation corridors throughout Ontario beginning this week, notes the OPP, which says it is “working with those involved to minimize the impact on the traveling public and the movement of goods.” R0011865696

EMC news – A garden tractor with attached snow blower has been stolen from a garage in McNab-Braeside and a generator from a carport in the Burnstown area. Renfrew OPP report the John Deere tractor was locked in a stable at a vacant property on Russett Drive at the time it disappeared. The theft occurred sometime between Dec. 24 and Jan 9. OPP Constable Kevin Rebertz is continuing to investigate. The 6,500-watt gas-powered generator was stolen from a carport on Burnstown Road between Jan. 3 and 7. It was stored in a plastic carport that could not be locked. OPP Const. Hayley Chaplin is investigating.
sponded to a call to assist an Ministry of Transportation officer with a commercial motor vehicle on Highway 17 near Campbell Drive. The male driver was arrested after he was found in possession of a cell phone, which was a breach of his bail conditions. The 34-year-old Casselman man was charged with breach of a recognizance and possession of marijuana after a quantity of pot was found in the vehicle. He was released on an appearance notice for court in Renfrew on March 13. The male passenger in the truck, a 48-year-old man from Nation, was also charged with possession of marijuana. He was also released on an appearance notice for court in Renfrew on March 13.

Kane, left, and Molly Shedrick enjoy sliding down Havey’s hill (Tank hill) on their tubes recently. Kane really whistled down the hill when he had father, Adam, aboard. The hill will be abuzz with action this weekend as the Arnprior Optimists hold their annual winter carnival at the Nick Smith Centre. One of the new events is a family toboggan party this Friday, Jan. 18 from 7 to 9 p.m. on Havey’s Hill, compete with a bonfire, music and hot chocolate. Town council agreed Monday to close Havey Street at Thomas Street Friday evening and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday to allow for safe sledding. The Optimists have been asked to put hay bales along the bottom of the hill to prevent sledders from ending up on private property below the hill. JOHN CARTER/METROLAND

A penny saved translates into Catholic school board employees many pennies saved for CHEO ratify two-year provincial deal EMC news – Education support staff employed by the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board have ratiﬁed a two-year contract agreement negotiated with the provincial government. A news release announcing the yes vote by members of Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 1202 says the deal “will protect services and students while ensuring stability in schools.” The agreement addresses a number of issues of importance to CUPE members, including protecting services through better job security,
Maximilian Moore Co-op student
EMC lifestyle - Darby MacAdam, at only 10 years of age, raised $500 for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) last month by authoring the “penny war” that took place at St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Arnprior. And he also had help from friends in the community. Darby and her mother, Dawn MacAdam, who was Darby’s number-one supporter throughout the whole campaign, presented the $500 (converted into cheque form as 50,000 pennies have a tendency to be encumbering) to CHEO representative and vice-president of Philanthropy and Community Development Jacqueline Belsito shortly before Christmas. CHEO expressed its immeasurable amount of gratitude and appreciation for Darby’s efforts. “They treated her as if she were a celebrity; it was so great to see,” said Dawn. “A million smiles and thankyous. An almost overwhelming amount of admiration towards Darby.” In return for Darby’s Grade 5s claiming victory in the penny war, each student in the class was rewarded a prize from the Royal Canadian Mint - a batch of exceptionally shiny loonies and collectible coins, as well as a poster. In total, St. Joseph’s Catholic School collectively raised 35,500 pennies, Reid Bros. in Arnprior contributed 10,000 pennies, the Arnprior Gallery Gift Shop contributed 3,000
improved sick leave support, and protection of pension contributions. “Our members understood what our bargaining committee faced at the provincial bargaining table in the shadow of Bill 115, said CUPE 1202 president Brenda MacMullen. “Their support helped greatly throughout this entire process, and we thank them for that support.” MacMullen thanked the provincial bargaining committee for their hard work, especially during the ﬁnal week of negotiations that took place over the holiday season prior to the Dec. 31
deadline to prevent an agreement from being imposed on them. However, the members are still not happy with Bill 115, she stressed. “The ﬁght is not over,” said MacMullen. “Our local has concluded this round of bargaining for our members, but our concerns around Bill 115’s infringement on our democratic rights remain. “Bill 115 created a crisis in our schools and we will continue to campaign until all provincial leaders commit that they will not attack our basic collective bargaining rights in the future.”
New OPSEU deal features wage freeze EMC news – There will be no agreement imposed on Ontario Public Service Employees as there was on the teachers. The provincial government announced last week that it had reached a tentative two-year collective agreement with the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU).
The negotiated agreement was reached by “both sides coming to the table and working co-operatively,” said the government release. The centrepiece of the agreement is “a commitment to implement a two-year wage freeze as part of the government’s ongoing effort to restore fiscal balance to the province while maintaining the valued
public services upon which Ontario families rely.” The government and OPSEU must ratify the tentative agreement before details will be released. OPSEU represents about 35,280 Ontario Public Service employees. The previous collective agreement with OPSEU expired on Dec. 31.
Presenting $500 raised by her in a penny war at St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Arnprior is student Darby MacAdam, with mother Dawn MacAdam, left and Jacqueline Belsito, vice-president of Philanthropy and Community Development at CHEO. pennies and 2,000 pennies came from various contributors such as Essencia Yoga & Spa Studio, Dawn ‘till Dusk Studio and family members. Shortly after the cheque was delivered, Dawn said:
“We are very thankful to everyone who contributed to Darby’s cause, and to sum it all up in Darby’s words, ‘I just want to help some sick kids, mom.’”

Live at the Met opera series coming to O’Brien Theatre email@example.com
EMC entertainment – The opera in the Upper Ottawa Valley? Yes, the opera is coming to Arnprior, and by popular demand. O’Brien Theatre owner Kevin Marshall has arranged to show five operas from New York’s famous Metropolitan Opera in his theatre over the next five months. The series begins Saturday, Jan. 26 with Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore. Four more operas will follow on the last Saturday of each month, all showings at 1 p.m. Marshall, who admits he isn’t a big opera fan, checked into the movies that are recorded live at the Met when asked about them by a few patrons. He viewed one of the opera movies in a city theatre and determined the recent major digital upgrading of his equipment makes it possible for him to run them. “They are pretty popular in Ottawa, so I thought they might be popular in the Valley as well,” he said, noting the operas are not offered
anywhere else in the Upper Ottawa Valley. He starting asking on his big screen prior to regular movies if there was any interest, “and I got a lot of response.” So he presented a free movie of the famous opera ‘Carmen’ on Dec. 22, attracting about 30 patrons on a wintery afternoon that deterred some out-of-town opera-lovers from attending. At that time he distributed information about the ‘Live at the Met’ encore presentations. The amount of support, especially from the Almonte area, prompted him to offer the fivepart series starting this month. More than 100 people have indicated they will attend. The movie operas are very well done, said Marshall, noting the film-makers are experienced, as they have been shooting them for 20 years. “It’s like watching a play.” He said many opera enthusiasts feel the atmosphere at an historic theatre such as the O’Brien is a much better place to watch an opera than a modern box theatre in Ottawa. The cost is $20 for each opera, or $85 for all five. If the interest is there, the O’Brien Theatre
NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Town of Arnprior Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Master Plan
Interested individuals and parties are invited to attend a Public Information Centre (PIC) between 6:00pm and 8:00pm on January 29th, 2013 at the Arnprior Public Library located at 21 Madawaska Street, Arnprior ON. The purpose of the PIC is for the Town to present the current ﬁndings of a Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Master Plan study and to solicit public input. Background The Town of Arnprior retained Stantec Consulting Ltd. to prepare an Infrastructure Master Plan to determine water and wastewater infrastructure needs to accommodate short-term (2016), midterm (2021) and long-term (2031) municipal services and infrastructure requirements. The Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Master Plan will serve as a guiding document to support operational and capital improvements to the water and wastewater systems. It will also serve to meet existing regulations along with future capacity requirements of existing services and planned growth within the Town of Arnprior. The Infrastructure Master Plan includes a hydraulic assessment of the potable water distribution system (watermain, pumps, storage and treatment) and the sanitary sewer collection system (sewers, pumps, treatment). Growth projections and potential development areas were included in the overall assessment of future infrastructure needs. Problems and opportunities were identiﬁed and alternative solutions considered. A servicing plan to meet the future needs was developed through optimizing the performance of existing infrastructure and planned phasing of future infrastructure. Municipal Class Environmental Assessment This Infrastructure Master Plan study is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. Phase 1 involved identiﬁcation of the problem or opportunity whereas Phase 2 identiﬁes alternative solutions. Following the PIC, copies of the Infrastructure Master Plan will be posted to the Town’s website and available for review at the Town Hall. As part of the EA process, the public will be invited to provide input to the project team. Comments from the public will be accepted within 30 calendar days following the Public Meeting date. To provide input into the planning process or for more information, please contact: John Steckly, A.Sc.T.

may do a full ‘Live at the Met’ series for 201314, Marshall said. It’s even possible to use Blu-ray disc technology to broadcast operas live from the Met as they are happening. There are some challenges to overcome, but if the interest is there, “I’ll
seriously look at it,” he said. This O’Brien Theatre’s winter-spring’s opera series continues Feb. 23 with Verdi’s Otello, March 30 with Verdi’s Aida, April 27 with Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda and May 25 with Verdi’s Rigoletto.
Wa’ hae ye Scots, and those who want to be, help plan festival EMC events – With confirmation McNab Days is a go again this year, the Scottish Festival Committee is gearing up for a major gathering June 23. Kilted up for action, the McNab Days sub-committee is planning a full day of fun and festivities at Waba Cottage Museum. Led by co-chairs Rose Anne and Boyd MacLaren, the committee is planning such activities as Kirkin’ of the Tartan and Calling of the Clans, a traditional Methodist circuit-rider service in the old Church, children’s Heritage
Games, Celtic artisan and historic family displays, a Pipe Tattoo, and a heritage Ballad/ Ode contest ($100 prize). The day will conclude with a box picnic supper social auction and concert. Those wishing to participate in the Scottish Festival should contact Rose Ann McLaren at 613-623-3614. The committee consists of the MacLarens, Bob Smith, Mackie McLaren, Lisa Falls, Heather Lang and Aldene Styles. After a lengthy discussion on whether McNab Days should take a hiatus for a year,
McNab-Braeside council finally agreed in November that it should proceed. The motion to offer council support in principle to McNab Days passed by a 3-2 vote. Mayor Mary Campbell, Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie and Coun. Brad McIlquham voted in favour. Councillors Aldene Styles and Bob Campbell were opposed. The motion also asked that the Scottish Festival and Riverdrive committees provide the township’s recreation committee with a proposed list of activities and budget.
New dance-aerobic studio opened EMC lifestyle – The Kenwood Athletic Centre has opened a new dance/aerobic studio. Some of the programs being offered at the studio are Zumba, pilates, Drums Alive, cardio and kickboxing. Silver Steps will be providing ballroom and Latin dance lessons. A Margaret Morris dance program will be offered Saturday morning for
girls from pre-school to 12 years old. An adult program is also in the works. The Kenwood Athletic Centre is hosting an open house to introduce the new spacious studio to the public on Monday, Jan. 21 from 5 to 7 p.m. The studio is located at 78 Edward St. in the Kenwood building.
Credit Union tips for starting year on right fiscal foot EMC lifestyle – The following tips from the Northern Credit Unit, which has an Arnprior branch, will help families make 2013 a year to lay the foundation for a financially healthy future. Make a budget. Creating a budget certainly is not the most fun, but it’s vital to keeping financial houses in order. Be prepared for emergencies. Everyone needs an emergency fund, otherwise known as a three-month cushion. This fund should have enough money to cover a job loss or accident that could re-
sult in reduced income for an extended period of time. Start investing. Saving just $10 a month can allow the purchase of inexpensive quality stocks or mutual funds, one share at a time. Start making these incremental contributions to a Registered Retirement Savings Plan, Tax Free Savings Account, or other investment options. Simplify finances. Finances can be complex and intimidating, and, therefore, tempting to ignore. This year, make a point of simplifying personal finances. Start by go-
ing paperless and paying bills automatically online. Let the kids manage their own money. Providing an allowance or encouraging teens to find a job will provide practical experience with budgeting earnings and prioritizing wants versus needs. For more tips on how to make 2013 a financially healthy new year and for Northern Credit Union’s New Year’s Money Map budgeting worksheet, visit www.facebook.com/NorthernCreditUnion or the Arnprior branch in January.

According to a recent poll by Alzheimerâ€™s Disease International, 40 per cent of people with dementia reported they had been avoided or treated differently after diagnosis. Itâ€™s no surprise, then, that one in four respondents cited stigma as a reason to conceal their diagnosis. Thatâ€™s why, in January during Alzheimer Awareness Month, the Alzheimer Society is launching a nation-wide campaign called: â€˜See me, not my disease. Letâ€™s talk about dementiaâ€™. Its goal is to address myths about the disease, shift attitudes and make it easier to talk about dementia. Canadians are also invited to test their attitudes and perceptions in an online quiz at the societyâ€™s website, www. alzheimer.ca/letstalkaboutdementia. Stereotypes and misinformation are what prevent people with dementia from
getting the help they need and stop others from taking the disease seriously. Dementia is more than having the occasional â€˜senior momentâ€™ or losing your keys. The truth is itâ€™s a progressive degenerative brain disorder that affects each person differently. Itâ€™s fatal and there is no cure. â€œDementia really challenges the values we hold as a society and what it means to be human,â€? says Mary Schulz, director of education at the Alzheimer Society of Canada. â€œWe need to stop avoiding this disease and rethink how we interact with people with dementia. Only by understanding the disease and talking more openly about it, can we face our own fears and support individuals and families living with dementia.â€? Today, 747,000 Canadians have dementia. While dementia can affect people as young as 40, the risk doubles every five years after 65. â€œA diagnosis of dementia doesnâ€™t immediately render a person incapable of working or carrying on with their daily
life,â€? explains Schulz. â€œMany people with this disease tell us they want to continue contributing to their community and remain engaged for as long as possible.â€? In fact growing evidence shows that involving people with dementia in meaningful activities that speak to their strengths helps to slow the progression of the disease and will improve their well-being. â€œInclusion benefits all of us,â€? says Schulz. The number of Canadians with dementia is expected to double to 1.4 million in the next 20 years, and Anne Harrison, 60, whose husband has Alzheimerâ€™s disease, understands what is at stake. â€œIf people knew more about dementia, they could be more supportive. People arenâ€™t ashamed of cancer. So, why should we be ashamed of Alzheimerâ€™s?â€? To help change the conversation, Canadians can: â€˘ learn the facts about dementia; â€˘ help to dispel inaccurate information to change societyâ€™s attitudes and opinions
The Arnprior Lionettes gave back to the community Jan. 10 when they presented a cheque to the Alzheimerâ€™s Society, Arnprior Chapter. Ffrom left, Lionettes Sally Bradley, Joan McConnell and, at far right, president Peggy Frechette, present Tracey Liebig of the Alzheimerâ€™s Society with a $135, the proceeds of which came from a fundraising tea hosted by McConnell at her home last fall.

LCBO staff, customers give United Way, CHEO big boost John Carter email@example.com
EMC lifestyle – The crew at the Arnprior liquor store raised an amazing amount of money for charity in 2012.
And they’re thanking Arnprior and area residents for making it all possible. The local LCBO store hooked up with the Renfrew County United Way last year in a big way.
UNITED WAY CAMPAIGN
TO PROPERTY OWNERS AFFECTED BY STORM OF JULY 23, 2012 The Township of Greater Madawaska is intending to clear fallen, damaged and weakened trees from private roads in a swath of 20 feet either side of the centre line of the travelled roadway, in the areas affected by the Macro-burst storm of July 23, 2012, beginning in March or April of 2013. The Township requires that all affected property owners sign an agreement prior to work being initiated. Agreements are being mailed to all property owners that reside on private roads within the storm area, and are also available on the Township website and at the Township office, 1101 Francis Street, Calabogie, ON. Property owners are also required to provide a copy of a recent property survey (if available) in order to clearly identify property boundaries. Property owners are requested to complete the agreement and return the signed agreement and a copy of a recent property survey (if available) by February 28, 2013 to:
In all, $7,990 was raised for the United Way’s campaign that supports several social services in Renfrew County. But LCBO staff didn’t stop there. In December, they asked
for donations for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and raised an impressive $8,243. At the same time, the LCBO joined with several other businesses in town in raising money for Ken Scissons and his tenants, victims of a pre-Christmas house fire in town. Another $1,000 was raised for that cause. In all, close to $18,000 was raised in the three campaigns. Store manager Chris Rand, assistant manager Velda Mask and all the staff in the store thank the public for the help in raising so much money for charity. “We thank our customers
We thank our customers for being so kind and generous. It’s truly amazing the amount of money that was raised. ARNPRIOR LCBO ASSISTANT MANAGER VELDA MASK
for being so kind and generous,” said Mask. “It’s truly amazing the amount of money that was raised.” She noted that it took many customers donating $2, $5 and $10 to make up the donation presented to CHEO. She said United Way executive director David Studham was a great help, coming
down and personally helping with the summer fundraisers. Studham resigned from his post just before Christmas to take another job. The United Way board, which includes Arnprior’s Cathi Fairfield, has delayed the end of the campaign twice, as money continues to come in to bring the total closer to the $500,000 goal.
Changes coming for province’s liquor sales EMC news – The provincial government has promised it will make it more convenient to buy alcohol in Ontario with two new store formats. New LCBO Express stores in several large grocery stores will carry a wide range of products, including Ontario wine, spirits and beer. The smaller format stores will enable the LCBO to meet consumer demand for convenience, says the government. LCBO VQA destination boutiques inR0011862372

LCBO staff helped launch the 2012 campaign with a barbecue in the summer and followed it up with fundraisers, including a yard sale over two weeks in late July and another barbecue in early August. The store staff also collected money for the United Way during two weeks in November.
side selected full-size LCBO stores will offer customers an expanded selection of Ontario’s VQA wines, including hard-tofind wines from smaller producers. The boutiques will make it easier for customers to discover and learn about VQA wines while helping support Ontario wineries. The LCBO will immediately begin to explore options for the new store formats, with openings expected over the next 12 to 18 months.
Through the introduction of the two new store formats and, together with the LCBO’s current store expansion plan, additional revenues will help contribute to eliminating the deficit and protect key priorities, such as health care and education, claims the government. The estimated value of Ontario’s beverage alcohol market in 2011-12 was $9.5 billion, despite the fact Ontario has the lowest number of alcohol retail stores per capita of any province.
Support for Ontario smokers wanting to STOP EMC lifestyle – Smokers from across Ontario have the opportunity to enroll in the STOP (Smoking Treatment for Ontario Patients) program and receive nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) free of charge to help them in their attempt to quit smoking. For many smokers the cost of nicotine replacement products can be a barrier to quitting. The STOP Program provides five weeks of free NRT, a practical support for alleviation of nicotine withdrawal symptoms, which has been shown to be effective to help people quit smoking. Those interested in participating in the STOP program may do so by attending one of the three STOP workshops being offered in Renfrew County, the closest to Arnprior being one in Renfrew from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23. To see if you are eligible to participate, and to register for a

The STOP Program, which is conducted by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care as part of the ministry’s Smoke-Free Ontario Strategy. In addition to providing NRT, the STOP Program will offer educational material to encourage program participants to make broader changes that can improve their overall health. Often smoking does not occur in isolation, but rather accompanies other risk factors for disease, such as poor nutrition and lack of physical activity.

Packers finally find way to defeat Shawville John Carter John.firstname.lastname@example.org
EMC sports - The Arnprior Packers broke a three-game losing streak to the bottom team in their division with an action-filled 6-5 win over the Shawville Pontiacs Sunday. The win enabled Arnprior to hold onto second place in the Eastern Ontario Junior B Hockey League’s Valley Division, although third-place Stittsville is only one point behind with two games in hand. The win gave the Packers a 4-2 record on their six-game homestand. Arnprior lost 6-3 to first-place Perth at the Nick Smith Centre last Friday. Sunday’s win before a decent-sized home crowd featured four goals, three by Arnprior, in the frantic final two minutes. The Packers rallied from 3-1 and 4-2 deficits to avoid a fourth straight loss to Shawville. The game ended with a fight at 19:57 between Packer scoring star Jared Steege and the Pontiacs’ Julian Dumont. Arnprior’s Ethan Allard also got tossed for being the third man in. The late game major likely means Steege will miss Arnprior’s game this Friday in Renfrew. Shawville came out of the first period with a 2-1 lead, sandwiching goals around a power-play marker by Arnprior’s Jeffrey Stanton. Tyler MacDonald gave Shawville a 3-1 lead with his second marker of the game at 7:19 of the second, but Luciano Pietrantonio made it a one-goal game again with a timely tally with just over two minutes left the period. Shawville regained the momentum when Dumont dented the twine at the five-minute mark of the third, but Arnprior’s big line got their team back in the game when Allard scored from Steege and Derrin Lehoux at 11:35. The Packers poured it on, outshooting the Pontiacs 17-7 in the third and it finally paid off when Lehoux scored from Steege and Brock Burge to tie the game at 17:59. Arnprior followed that up with Stanton’s second of the game at 19:13 and Mark Shanks made it 6-4 with an empty-net-
ter at 19:43. Shawville’s Liam Porier rounded out the flurry of goals at 19:49. Kyle Lamothe picked up the win in the Packer net, making 31 saves.
ers of seven straight. It’s fill the rink night in Renfrew, with four Bon Jovi concert tickets up for grabs, two to a lucky Arnprior fan and two to a lucky Renfrew fan. The game will be broadcast on MyFM. The Packers don’t play again for a week, next taking on Almonte Thunder Friday, Jan. 25 at the Pakenham arena as part of the annual Pakenham Frostfest. After games in Shawville and Stittsville Feb. 1 and 3, the Packers finally return home to face the Royals Friday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. LEAGUE TIDBITS: Perth put a serious dint in Almonte’s slim playoff chances with a 52 win Sunday. The win gave the Blue Wings a 12-point lead in the division. Stittsville, fresh off a 7-2 win over Renfrew Sunday, blew a chance to overtake Arnprior for second with a 7-1 loss to Ottawa Canadians Tuesday. Renfrew has made a change behind the bench, replacing Brent Sylvester with former Timberwolf coach Tony Iob. Iob took over the Wolves in mid-season two years ago and guided them to the Valley playoff crown. He stepped down at the end of last season. The change didn’t provide immediate results, as Renfrew lost to Shawville (in a shootout) and Stittsville on the weekend.
PERTH 6 ARNPRIOR 3
The game was for all intents and purposes over by the half-way mark of the first period with Perth building up a 3-0 lead. Perth stretched the margin to 4-0 in the second until the Packers gave their fans something to cheer about with goals by Mark Shanks and Corey Chaplin less than a minute apart late in the middle stanza. However, Perth snipers Brett Madigan with his 37th goal of the season and Blair Barr with his 31st gave the Blue Wings a 6-2 lead before Brock Burge scored late in the game. With Lamothe unavailable, Mike Cheslock took the loss in the Packer net. He was replaced after Perth’s sixth goal by Matteo Scapillati, who is the son of Packers owner Marco Scapillati. It was a feisty affair, with Arnprior racking up 91 minutes in penalties and Perth 71. The Packers now take to the road for four outings, starting in Renfrew this Friday, Jan. 18 for an 8 p.m. game with the slumping Timberwolves, los-
Above, Packers Brayden Harvey and Ryan Patrick help keep a Perth Blue Wing forward away from their rookie goalie Matteo Scapillati in action at the Nick Smith Centre last Friday. Scapillati saw his first action of the year, playing the final 15:33 of the game in relief of Mike Cheslock in a 6-3 loss. Left, a skirmish with three seconds left in Arnprior’s exciting 6-5 win over Shawville Sunday saw Packer Jared Steege tossed for fighting and linemate Ethan Allard ejected for being the third man in.

Calabaogie ski racing club kicks off a new season
EMC sports – The Calabogie Ski Racing Club (CSRC) has opened up another race season with several members from Arnprior and area. After a fall dryland training program, the athletes were keen to get out on the snow. Thanks to Mother Nature and excellent snow-making at Calabogie Peaks, the racers started carving it up in midDecember. They have just wrapped up an intensive race camp at Calabogie Peaks, which ran almost every day through the Christmas holidays. CSRC is a competitive alpine ski racing program focused on the development of youth into competitive athletes and responsible young adults. The club is athlete-centered, which encourages personal growth and develops individual potential. The athletes race within the National Capital Division of Alpine Ontario, against racers from other ski hills throughout Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. FIVE DIVISIONS
CRSC is offering five age divisions this year: U10, ages 8-9; U12, ages 10-11; U14, ages 12-13; and U16, ages 1415. Calabogie’s racers come from all over Eastern Ontario, from Carp to Pembroke,
Calabogie Ski Racing Club members include: U10 – Carly Alexander (Carp), Thys Blok (White Lake), Wyatt Campbell-Brunke (Renfrew), Nicole Duff (Pembroke), Carson Lefebvre (Calabogie), Nicholas McDermid (Burnstown), Evan Sharma (Kingston), Louise Stonham (Arnprior), Jeremy Van Grunsven (Odessa), and Alex Wroe (Burnstown); U12 – Jack and Sam Alexander (Carp), Connor Allen (Manotick), Owen Barr (Carp), Ryan Geddie (Kanata), Tyler Lefebvre (Calabogie), Tess Schreider (Kingston), Alyssa Steggall (Stittsville), Sean Swayze (Braeside), Annabel Wight (Kanata), and Zachary Wroe (Burnstown); U14 – Alex and Sam Duff (Pembroke), Lauren Campbell-Brunke (Renfrew), Jessica Earle (Greely), Lauren Ferguson (Carp), Jack Hamilton (Burnstown), Alexandra Kerr (Kemptville), Connor and Liam Maclean (Manotick), Nika Prairie (Ottawa), Travis Reid (Kingston), Emma Schreider (Kingston), Sophia Tan (Kanata), and Jenna Wissing (Ottawa); U16 – Gabrielle D’Aoust (Glenburnie), Aylen Ferguson (Carp), and Chris Pepin (Kinburn). and as far away as Kingston, Manotick, and Kemptville. The racers will spend the next few weekends training to compete in upcoming slalom and giant slalom races. In slalom, racers navigate tight courses by pulling off quick short-radius turns, whereas in giant slalom the turns are longer and the speed greater. The U16 group will kick off the season with a slalom
race on home territory at Calabogie Peaks Saturday, Jan. 19, while the U14s travel to Vorlage, Quebec for their first slalom. The U14s and U16s then travel to Quebec for giant slalom races on Jan. 20. The youngest competitors, U10, are at home Jan. 20 for another slalom. Stay tuned this season to read all about the race reports and results.

The Senators open their season in Winnipeg this Saturday, Jan. 19. Meanwhile, Sportsnet has announced it will televise 33 Senators games this season, beginning with the Florida meeting. The NHL teams will play 48 games, all in their own conference. After a two-game road trip late next week, the Senators come home to host Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27, Alexander Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals Tuesday, Jan. 29 and the Montreal Canadiens Wednesday, Jan. 30.

Island View unveils veterans wall of honour Sherry Haaima Sherry.email@example.com
EMC news – Island View Retirement Suites hosted a very special event last week that honoured veterans living at the retirement centre, as well as the town’s veterans. Arnprior Mayor David Reid and officials from Legion Branch 174 and Island View joined veterans and their families Jan. 10 for the unveiling of the wall of honour, where the photos of veterans past and present are displayed. The mayor noted the importance of the contributions of the town’s many veterans and said he was pleased to see so many living comfortably at Island View. “Arnprior is so lucky to have a facility such as Island View,” he said. “It’s great to see so many veterans have a good spot to go in their senior years.” Reid said he was surprised to see that Island View’s veterans numbered more than 20. The event in fact helped connect the Legion with a number of local veterans of which the agency wasn’t aware. This will help Branch 174 include these veterans in annual recognition efforts, said Legion officials. Island View veterans recognized on the wall include: Orville Blackburn, Bill Blanchard, Doug Bonnell, Barclay Craig, Robert Crook, David Croskery, Doug Edgar, Georges Freeman. Bill Gallagher, Bob Hore, Donald Hyndman, Archie Jenkins, Don Mair, Kenneth McNab, Jim Shaw, Wellwood Smith, Doug Snair, Armas Tammela, Betty Wild and Reg Wild. Arnprior veterans recognized include Bob Adkins, Arthur Charbonneau, Ted Graham, Mel Porter, McGregor Scobie, Doug Spaull, Leonard Spinks and Bill Tearle.
Armas and Marie Tammela both have their photos displayed on the wall of honour. About, their grandchildren Sarah Finan and Jeremy Raymond are among the family members who joined them to celebrate at the Jan. 10 ceremony.

EMC lifestyle – Congratulations to the winners of the Bert Paige Award for volunteers, brothers Frank and Bernie Gorman. Well deserved, gentlemen. We’ve had some under-theweather members lately and some playing hooky for a few weeks. Hopefully the new year will get them feeling better (so we can put them back to work). Best wishes from all to Doug Clapham and Yvon Ouellet. Speedy recovery fellas, you’re missed. Memberships at last year’s price are still available until Jan. 31, which is fast approaching.

member the jam sessions every Friday night. There are some really talented people in this community and some come from afar as well. Watch the events sign out front for the Saturday afternoon entertainment twice a month. There’s no entrance fee and it’s always a great afternoon.

Parenting workshop offered on Jan. 23 EMC lifestyle – A local child counselling expert will hold a special parenting workshop in Arnprior Wednesday, Jan. 23. Parenting with Relationship and Attachment in Mind will be presented by Darlene Denis-Friske of the Arnprior Child and Youth Counseling Centre. It runs from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Ontario Early Years Centre at the Kenwood Corporate Centre. Parenting is not so much about what we do with our child, but more so about who we are to our child, says Denis-Friske. “Parenting with attachment and relationship in mind can help our children to better cope with stress, weather anxieties, deal with frustrations in their life, feel more secure and grounded, and, ultimately, come to rest.” The cost of the workshop is $5.
The Arnprior Legion’s Bert Page Award was shared by the Gorman brothers. Frank, left, and Bernie are deserving winners of the award for volunteering that is presented annually on the first day of January at the Legion’s Lev’ee. Frank spends many hours in the kitchen helping with breakfasts, lunches and monthly dinners, as well as the catering meals at the Legion. Bernie does just about anything that needs doing, from peeling vegetables to shopping, setting tables and clean-up. This past summer he has become the Legion’s resident gardener.

The gifts on the Angel Tree For the Love of a Senior ranged from hot meals to para-transit rides. gift from their neighbor during the season and into the New Year. We had suggested that maybe you could make it a family project. One local family did just that and so much more. Sorry, we donâ€™t have names to publish but please know that these four children and their mentors have all earned the title â€˜Angels of Pay-Forwardâ€™. Four children were taught the true meaning of giving during the Christmas season. Their family project included picking four angels from the tree. Each child had to complete a job around the home and for each completed project they would be awarded with a lady-bug sticker of which they attached to the back of the angel. Once they had earned enough lady-bugs to cover the cost of the gift chosen, they were once again rewarded,

EMC lifestyle â€“ Throughout 2012, the Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home program was blessed with the generous support of the folks of Arnprior, Township of McNab-Braeside, White Lake, Pakenham, West Carleton and areas outside of our realm. They supported the â€˜Dare to Care Yellow Envelopeâ€™ campaign (and continue to do so), as it reached its goal to keep the â€˜wheels turningâ€™ on the Para transit vehicle. They supported the publishing and the purchasing of the cookbook â€˜150 Year of Cooking in the Ottawa Valley & Beyondâ€™ (ďŹ rst print sold out within less than two weeks). They supported every yard sale, bake sale, dance, rafďŹ‚e ticket sold, and they supported Seniors at Homeâ€™s three newest projects Hot Meals on Wheels, Health and Wellness Fair and Angel Tree for the Love of a Senior. They did not only support the agency ďŹ nancially but with the love and care that only volunteers can provide. Without this great support from both generous folks and communities, we would not be able to reach our mission: to encourage independent living and enhance the quality of life of seniors and individuals with special needs. The concept of maintaining quality of life is the key to Home Support. The year ended for us in a most heartwarming way, ways of which we wish to share with you. You may recall we offered, for the ďŹ rst time, the Angel Tree for the Love of a Senior. The tree was located in the main entrance of Arnprior RONA (thank you Lori and staff). The idea was to provide a new and fresh gift idea for a senior at Christmas time. Hanging from the tree were silver Angels that represented an opportunity for those wishing to share in â€˜Givingâ€™. Available were â€˜Angelsâ€™ bearing gifts of hot meals, frozen meals, transportation and foot care clinic, all designed to suit a seniorsâ€™ needs. We report the response to the Angel tree was exceptional with so many giving and sharing so a senior could enjoy a
many adult residents of Arnprior. â€œThe program (Hot Meals on Wheels) saved my life,â€? said Bev Bourne, a recent patient at the Arnprior Hospital. â€œI didnâ€™t even have enough energy to make a bowl of soup when I got out of the hospital. I looked forward to the hot bowl of soup each day as well, the rest of the meals were incredible. I would recommend them to anyone,â€? she said. â€˜Hot Meals on Wheelsâ€™ includes hot nutritious meals cooked fresh daily at The Grove and consists of soup, crackers, a hot main course, dinner roll and dessert. The program is available to seniors 60 years of age or older, adults who are chronically ill, adults living with a disability, adults convalescing from surgery or illness, and adults undergoing medical treatments (no matter the age). Hot Meals on Wheels are delivered to clients Monday to Friday between 11 a.m. and noon by dedicated volunteers of ABMSHP. Clients can order meals for any or all ďŹ ve days at the cost of $8 per meal. Special diets and allergies can be accommodated. Clients must reside within the Town of Arnprior with the service being requested by the individual, family members, friends or any health care personnel. To ensure this service is available to clients in need, all applicants will be interviewed by Patti Jennings, program co-ordinator of ABMSHP. The questions are designed to determine a potential clientâ€™s current ability to shop for groceries, safely prepare their own meals or have someone available to assist them with their daily meal needs. Those applicants who may not qualify for the Hot Meals on Wheels program may beneďŹ t from the Frozen Meals service that is also available from ABMSHP for clients within the Town of Arnprior as well as the Township of McNabBraeside. Please contact Jennings at 613-623-7981 for more information on Hot Meals on Wheels and Frozen Meals, as well as other programs offered by ABMSHP, such as Home Help/Home Maintenance, Telephone Security, Friendly
