News – Former Arnprior councillor Tom Peckett has joined McNabBraeside Coun. Aldene Styles in the race for mayor of the township. Mayor Mary Campbell has not yet said publicly whether she’ll run but indicated she’ll make a decision by the end of this month. Meanwhile, Coun. Brad McIlquham has ďŹ led to run for deputy mayor in the township (see Page 3). Peckett ďŹ led his papers Jan. 20. There has been very little growth in the township and new policies put in place by the current council will stymie growth even further, he said. “The problems with the quarry, lack of investment in the community, reading and recreation agreements with Arnprior and Renfrew, and the looming increase for police are just the tip of the iceberg. Change is needed,â€? said Peckett. He came to the area in 1969 and is married with four children and six grandchildren. He has worked as a police ofďŹ cer, sales and operations manager, loss control technician and retail store owner. He’s enjoyed each post he’s held over the years for different reason, but there’s a common theme – the people he encounters. “All of them were good because I got to meet people. I really enjoy that,â€? he said. His decision to run stems from what he’s seen going on in the past while. “After attending public and council meetings over the past couple of

years, I believe a change in direction is urgently needed in the township of McNab-Braeside,� said Peckett in a news release. “A person can only complain so much before they should stand up for what they believe in: therefore, I have decided to enter the race for mayor of McNabBraeside.� The area needs better promotion and more of an open-arms approach to inspire growth. “We’re going to need to promote ourselves as ‘the place to live’ but before we do that we’re going to have to make it ‘the place to live,’� he said. “We have to make people feel welcome and currently I don’t think we are.� He sings the praises of the township and community. “It’s a beautiful area and the people are just great. Neighbours are always helping neighbours,� he said. Peckett spent seven years on Arnprior council before losing to Walter Stack in the reeve’s race in 2010. He pointed out it was during this run that an agreement was made between the two communities for library, recreation, and water services that lasted for seven years. He has served as both chair and member of the Arnprior Police Commission. “I negotiated with the OPP over several years, managing to keep costs down while still maintaining a good level of service,� he said. He was also on the negotiating team dealing with union and nonunion workers. See PECKETT, Page 3

Lynch to seek second term as councillor

Dan Lynch is the first to file for councillor in Arnprior in the Oct. 27 election. to building on that “foundation� in his second term. “I believe that the building blocks, that being the admin-

tion or amalgamation with its neighbour, he said. Lynch also said it makes more sense for council to build a new town hall in the area of the firepolice station than embark on mandatory improvements to the current structure. He said he decided to make his intentions known early in the process to give everyone a chance to evaluate his contributions to council. “By filling out my nomination form now, it will give new people in town a short time to judge my performance as a councillor,� he said. “Hopefully with the support of the persons who voted for me last time along with the new residents, I’ll be part of the 2014 town council.�

McIlquham announces run for deputy mayor Sherry Haaima

Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

News – McNab-Braeside council needs a change in direction, says Coun. Brad McIlquham. That is why he has put his hat in the ring for the deputy mayor position in the Oct. 27 municipal election. Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie said she will more than likely run again but has lots of time to declare her intentions. “My focus right now is the budget and keeping things running in the township,� she said. “I would like to ensure we keep business going as usual.� McIlquham was elected to council eight years ago after an earlier unsuccessful bid for a spot. The 60-year-old Braeside resident filed his nomination papers Jan 15. He was elected eight years ago after an earlier attempts for a spot on council.

The married father of four children and grandfather of one grew up in Ottawa but moved to the area for high school and has been here ever since. A 28-year employee of Russell Food Equipment, McIlquham wants to see a change in direction at the council table. “It needs a little change and I feel the committees need to move forward a little quicker,� he said. “It’s not running smoothly at the moment. I think there are some committee members not working as a group.� Development needs to be encouraged. “We’ve been trying to get development going and nothing’s happening,� said McIlquham. “There are all these severances but nobody’s building. I’m pushing for a bit of a change on that.� Many municipalities, including McNab-Braeside, will see an increase in development

Brad McIlquham: eyes deputy mayor’s job. fees in the near future and McIlquham wants to see a timeline put on that. “Maybe we could give developers some time at the old price. Hopefully that’ll move things forward,� he said. McIlquham points to his experience and community involvement as strengths. He’s been active in area activities, including winter carnivals and Canada Day events and has

sat on all of the council committees in the past eight years. An avid golfer, the councillor is also treasurer at Braeside United Church. The town’s lack of shared library and recreation services with neighbouring Arnprior and Renfrew will continue to be a pressing issue. His focus regarding that issue? “It’s going to be to come up with a reasonable deal with Arnprior and Renfrew as far as library and recreation agreements,� said McIlquham. “But I still feel we have to be able to do it a reasonable cost.� The area and its strengths need to be promoted. “We’ve got the best outdoor recreation opportunities,� he said. “Between the Ottawa and the Madawaska rivers, there’s so much you can do and develop. We’re just starting to get to it. It needs money and some commitment to make even better than it is now.�

Tom Peckett: in the race.

If elected mayor, his promises include: * a council open and transparent; * decisions in the best interest of the whole community; * a council that uses factual

numbers not pulling numbers out of the air to support their own personal goal; * no hidden agendas; * a council looking after an independent community that works together to achieve a better quality of life for everyone.

If elected, Peckett said he would like to reach out to the farming community to learn more and see what can be done to support that vital segment of the population. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to hear from the farming community themselves,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to listen.â&#x20AC;?

Explosion, fire damage downtown Arnprior restaurant John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

News – One man is injured and a property has sustained fire and structural damage as a result of an explosion and fire Sunday evening in downtown Arnprior. Moe’s Pita and Pizzeria owner Moe Fakih was taken to Arnprior hospital for treatment of burns caused by an explosion at his Madawaska Street restaurant. An Ontario Fire Marshal office investigator took over the scene Tuesday and will conduct a full investigation into the cause of the fire. A statement released by Arnprior fire chief John Okum reports that the Arnprior volunteer fire department was called shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday to respond to reports of an explosion and smoke in a building on Madawaska Street near Bell Street. As local police, fire and paramedic emergency responders arrived on scene, they found Fakih outside with burns to his face and hands. He was treated by Renfrew County Paramedics and taken to the Arnprior District Memorial Hospital, where he remained overnight. The firefighters found smoke was coming from the three-storey building, which contains Moe’s Place on the main level and apartments on the PHOTOS BY DEREK DUNN upper level. Despite the wind and snow, fire crews managed to bring the situation Arnprior firefighters quickly asunder control at the Madawaska Boulevard restaurant. sembled several of its fire appara-

A fire located in the basement was extinguished and the building was searched to confirm everyone in the apartments had safely evacuated. The fire department determined that the owner had returned to his restaurant, which had closed at 7 p.m., to retrieve personal belongings and was inside the building when the explosion occurred. He was able to escape the restaurant, call 9-1-1 and notify the apartment’s tenants, who had also been alerted by the sound of the explosion. Okum noted that the building’s

gas and electrical services have been “isolated” and a preliminary investigation was conducted to assess the damage. The building sustained fire damage in the basement and smoke damage in the other two floors. Because of the explosion, an engineer will be needed to determine if the building is structurally compromised. The Ontario Fire Marshal was alerted, a requirement when there are injuries and reports of an explosion. Okum discussed the case with the Fire Marshal’s Office Monday. The investigation will look into the cause and origin of the explosion and determine the full extent of the damage.

Arnprior town staff table zero increase draft budget sherry.haaima@metroland.com

BUDGET PRESSURES

As for Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial situation, it will become clearer at the end of January, when most of the past yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bills come in. In his budget presentation to council, CAO Michael Wildman highlighted the fact that with even with more than $600,000 in new budget pressures, staff has managed to

10-YEAR PLAN

A highlight of 2013 was the creation of a sustainable financial model and improved infrastructure. A key priority area in 2013 was an action plan and financial model that included a 10-year long range capital forecast and the resolution of financial issues. Key priority areas in 201415 will be infrastructure, economic development and marketing, said Wildman. Improving the financial situation included collection of unpaid bills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Staff continues to collect past due accounts and reduc-

ing accounts receivable,â&#x20AC;? said Wildman. A collection agency has assisted with the garnering of $124,358 of past due utilities payments and $80,570 has been arranged through payment plans. PAST TAXES COLLECTED

In terms of past due property taxes, major gains have been made. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In April, five properties were registered for tax sale,â&#x20AC;? said Wildman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Four of the five properties have paid in full and have been removed form the tax sale registration.â&#x20AC;? An increase in collection in 2013 has decreased delinquent accounts of more than three years from $468,410 to $228,180. The townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first 10-year long range capital forecast (LRCF) was approved in October, Wildman explained. The asset management plan approved in December indicated there is a gap between lifecycle renewal needs and available funds, so staff increased the recommendation of the rolling road rehabilitation budget line from $475,000 to $675,000. The goal, said Wildman is to ensure self-sustaining programs, including wastewater and waterworks services, cemeteries, protection, inspection and control and waste managements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in any different position than any other mu-

nicipality,â&#x20AC;? said Wildman. Capital projects of more than $10,000 are based on the LRCF. An OPP wage increase of 8.5 per cent from 2013-14 makes for an estimated $160,000 increase but an anticipation credit of about $120,000 will offset that cost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a good job of finding money to put into reserves,â&#x20AC;? said Wildman. The draft budget incorporates a total contribution of $2,627,659 to reserve and reserve funds and use of $2,040,485, making for a net reserves contribution of $587,174. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to growth, the garbage collection contract has increased by $71,000 in 2014,â&#x20AC;? reported Wildman. Staff has compared the numbers of neighbouring municipalities and found Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $122/year rate, which has not gone up since 2005, to be among the lowest. PHASE-IN INCREASE

The special sessions will be held at 5 p.m. on Feb. 11 and 12 (and 13 if needed) in council chambers. If everything goes according to plan, council 2

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; If there are no last minute surprises, Arnprior taxpayers could get a tax break this year. Town of Arnprior staff have tabled a draft of the 2014 budget and if there are no major changes added by council during upcoming deliberations, it appears that the municipal tax rate may not increase by all that much if at all this year. As it stands, there is no proposed increase, though there will most certainly be changes after council has had their say and the county and education levies are factored in. However, the education levy has been falling in the past few years and the county rate will likely drop too. Renfrew County council was scheduled to discuss a proposed budget Wednesday (after press deadline) up $1.2 million over last year. But with new and increased assessment in the county, that would translate into a decrease in the tax rate.

table a zero per cent municipal tax rate increase for council to consider. The budget includes contributions to reserves for future projects and a sizeable amount for 2014 capital projects, including road rehabilitation. New budget pressures include reduction in revenues, including decreased Ontario Municipal Partnership funding and the discontinuation of funding from McNab-Braeside township for shared library and recreation services. Escalated expenses include an OPP wage increase, 20 per cent more in winter control funds and an increase in the waste collection contract. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 2014 budget is being presented with a clearer picture of corporate finances,â&#x20AC;? said Wildman in his presentation to council Jan. 13.

Staff have proposed a phased-in increase over three years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $130 in 2014, $135 in 2015 and $140 in 2016. Wildman reminded councillors that $71,000 can be considered to equal an approximate municipal tax rate increase of one per cent. Mayor David Reid thanked staff for their work on the draft budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know the work that goes into preparation of this budget,â&#x20AC;? said Reid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot of work and I just wanted to commend all the staff for the effort they put in.â&#x20AC;?

Hartwick appointed acting fire chief Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

News – The Township of McNab-Braeside has a new fire chief. Former McNab-Braeside deputy fire chief Dave Hartwick has been appointed interim fire chief in the township following the resignation of former chief Ken Walton, effective Jan. 1. Township CAO Noreen Mellema confirmed Walton announced his resignation in December. Officials are reviewing the position and the job description, Mellema said. The job will be posted. Past practice has been to post positions internally first, which will happen in this case also. Former chief Walton had been with the department since about 2001 and became chief in 2011, succeeding Rob Dodge.

Hartwick is one of the township’s longest standing firefighters, said Mellema, noting he has held positions of captain and district chief before his deputy position and his new role. NO TO TURBINES

McNab-Braeside says no to wind turbines. In December, the township passed a resolution stating it is not a willing host of industrial wind turbines. The resolution made note of the province’s desire to limit wind turbines. “The Township of McNabBraeside applauds the position taken by the premier and the government,” says the resolution. The mayor cautioned council that the resolution alone does not necessarily prevent the energy producing structures.

“I have to advise council that at ROMA (Rural Ontario Municipal Association) conference, the minister specified that not being a willing host will not veto a significant project,” said Campbell. “Our best protection is that we’re not particularly desirable from a wind perspective.” CLOSED SESSIONS

In December, council appointed Darrel Ryan as municipal closed session investigator for the township. Ryan, a former municipal CEO, is chair of Renfrew County Community Futures Development Corporation and the Family and Children’s Services of Renfrew County boards. Formerly the closed meeting investigator was Local Authority Services Ltd., a subsidiary of the Association of Municipalities in Ontario.

OMB to hold prehearing Jan. 29 for quarry appeals News – The pre-hearing for the appeals to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) involving the Miller Group’s proposal to expand operations at the Braeside Quarry will take place Wednesday, Jan. 29. The public session will begin at 10 a.m. in McNab-Braeside council chambers. The OMB will bring together the principals in the appeal to see if the matter can be worked out between them prior to a formal hearing. The proposal, which prompted a great deal of public interest and attracted a large crowd to a public hearing in May in Braeside, has been appealed by both sides. Township council approved in June a major expansion of the quarry operation, although not everything that was requested by the company. Most prominently, council rejected the locating of a permanent asphalt plant in the quarry, a decision being appealed by Miller’s. The decision is also being appealed by residents upset at how close the expanded operation will come to their property. In all, there are five appeals to the

Ontario OMB against the township’s Comprehensive Bylaw 2010-49, passed into law June 18. The bylaw sets out the changes allowed at the quarry site. The Miller Group has made two appeals and the community association, FACT-MB Inc. (Friends Addressing Concerns Together in McNab-Braeside) has also filed an appeal. As well, two township residents are appealing the bylaw. The FACT appeal focus on an amendment to the bylaw that it says allows Miller’s to use

neighbours’ property as a buffer zone for the industrial operations at the site. A number of neighbours banded together a couple of years ago and took Miller’s to court, successfully claiming that noise, smell and dust from a temporary asphalt plant at the site and related activities adversely affected their enjoyment of their properties. The residents fighting the proposal have also expressed concern that the expanded operation will pose a danger to the area’s water table and the alvar along the Braeside ridge.

www.cherylgallant.com Now that winter is upon us, here in every community in the Ottawa Valley, people are lacing up their skates to enjoy our national pastime, skating and hockey! January 18th is Hockey Day in Canada. If you enjoy hockey and a good read, I recommend the book just published by Prime Minister Stephen Harper: A Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs and the Rise of Professional Hockey, an excellent read and one I enjoyed. One can reminisce about the Renfrew Creamery Kings (better known as the Renfrew Millions by salaries paid by owner M.J. O’Brien), the Pembroke Seniors and the Arnprior Hockey Club of the Upper Ottawa Valley Hockey League. Learn about the events that eventually led to Renfrew having the honour of being the birthplace of the NHL. You really cannot get more Canadian than having our Prime Minister, The Right Honourable Stephen Harper, writing a book on the early history of professional hockey and the beginnings of the Maple Leafs and the NHL. I think it is really unique that our Prime Minister wrote a book about hockey. It is a rare achievement for a world leader to write a book while in office, especially one that is not a personal memoir, or later a sad mea culpa of what they did not accomplish while in office. Prime Minister Harper is donating the proceeds from this book to the families of those who serve in the Canadian Military. All author royalties from this book will go to Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS). The CFMWS provides a variety of services, with personnel support programs, military family services, and casualty support, to name a few. Individual funds have been set up to fill any perceived void in government funding. Canadians are able to donate to funds directly that have been set up to assist serving and retired members of the Canadian Armed Forces. The Military Families Fund allows for several areas of support, including rehabilitation, education, and financial assistance in the case of injury or death of a CF member due to service, and urgent and extraordinary financial demands where the ability to provide family necessities is at risk. “Soldier On” was created in 2006 with the aim of supporting ill and injured military personnel having a permanent or chronic disability, both still serving and retired, and their families to attain an active and healthy lifestyle. It supports these personnel in increasing their independence, in developing new skills, in achieving goals and opening the door to other life opportunities. It furnishes an opportunity for them to socialize and explore common interests, and share learning experiences. The Hospital Comforts Program was created in 2006 from a need to fill a perceived void with charitable works providing for the care and comfort of Canadian Forces members confined to hospital from injury, illness, accident or surgery. The purpose of the program is to provide support to the hospitalized member that is both consistent and sustainable within a framework to ensure the best possible services to the member. The Canadian Forces Personnel Assistance Fund (CFPAF) provides financial assistance to serving and former members of the Canadian Forces and their immediate families. A member of the CF is generally eligible to apply for CFPAF assistance after completion of one year of service.

EDITORIAL

Getting best plow for your buck The snowmobilers and skiers are happy, but the cold, snowy start to this winter isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing municipal taxpayers any favours. Snow plowing and removal budgets for the latter part of 2013 and the first three weeks of 2014 have been strained by the storms that have challenged work crews all around the region. For the most part, local roads have been fairly well plowed despite the inopportune timing of many of the snowfalls, happening often as they have on weekends and holidays. Highway 417 was a bit of a mess for a couple of days, with unplowed lanes and icy ruts causing problems for early morning commuters. However, drivers who exercised caution and adapted to the conditions were able to make it into work safely. As for those who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to resist speeding or passing in dangerous conditions, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too bad you have to drag up all our car insurance rates with your impatience and recklessness. The snow plow drivers must shake their heads at some of the craziness they see as they try to make our roads safe for all. In winters like this, snow plow drivers deserve a hearty pat on the back for their dedication and skill in what can be an exceedingly tricky job. The plow operators have been out many times in the early morning doing an effective job keeping the highways and county roads clear. And out in the country, municipal operators have been ensuring rural residents stay connected to their schools, hospitals, work and shopping.

In Arnprior, the roads have usually been promptly cleared as storms hit. However, a shift in the way sidewalk plowing and snow removal is being handled this year has caused an uproar in some neighbourhoods. The townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intentions are admirable. It wants to save money and make winter maintenance more efficient. Unfortunately for the town, this hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been the best year, what with the snow, ice rain and frigid temperatures, to test a new program. The pile-up of snow on some streets and the lack of plowed sidewalks in others have residents worried about pedestrian safety, especially that of children. The town has bravely asked people what they think of the changes and has been getting an earful. Now council has to determine just how serious a safety risk the snowy sidewalks and snowbanks pose. With costs rising in most other areas, putting up with some inconvenience to save money on snow removal makes sense. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like the snowbanks will be with us forever. Winter will eventually end and the snow will melt. Maybe next year, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be such a difficult winter and the changes will be easier to take. However, if the changes are indeed threatening the safety of young students and other pedestrians on our back streets, council needs to take steps right away to modify the program. Inconvenience is one thing, but if the changes are putting lives in danger, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for to rethink the whole matter.

LETTER

Speak out against censorship of Internet To the Editor: I am very concerned about the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), which is currently being negotiated without public input. Already over 120,000 have signed the Say No to Internet Censorship petition. I encourage everyone to learn more about TPP Internet Censorship before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too late at OpenMedia.org/ Censorship. Experts have pointed out that under the TPP, â&#x20AC;&#x153;kids could be sent to jail for downloadingâ&#x20AC;? and whole families could be kicked off the Internet. It would force Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to become Internet police and monitor my Internet use, censor website content, and remove entire websites from my view. It would also hinder our ability to

access information and criminalize our everyday use of the Internet. As a concerned citizen, I am speaking out for a free and open Internet. The TPP would limit accessibility for disabled people. Visually impaired or deaf would be criminalized for circumventing digital locks on any digital materials they have purchased. This means they would be unable to convert them to braille, audio, or other accessible formats. I believe that the Internet should be open and accessible to everyone. In addition, the TPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal to force ISPs to install costly and invasive surveillance equipment into their networks gravely worries me. These added costs would drive up everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Internet bills and could force smaller independent Internet providers out

of business. I believe that Internet access is a right and should be kept open and affordable for everyone. The TPP is another U.S.-backed deal that will undermine Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national rules. When our rules were finalized in 2011, they were considered a victory for both creators and citizens - but the TPP could reverse the progress made by our elected decision-makers. The TPP includes many U.S.backed provisions that would benefit outdated media conglomerates at the expense of our own well-balanced copyright laws.

Spurning Wal-mart was mistake To the Editor: Oh, no! Another business in Arnprior is closing its doors on John Street. Remember about four or five years ago when council turned down a Wal-mart store at the White Lake Classic driving range? At that time, they were afraid if Wal-mart came to the Arnprior area that it would have a detrimental effect on local stores. So, now there is no Wal-mart in Arnprior (to keep residents from driving to Renfrew or Kanata) and

businesses are still closing. Arnprior Mall and John Street have a multitude of empty locations, which is very sad for the local economy. Wal-mart would have provided many employee opportunities for Arnprior and district families. Too bad council, at that time, was not forward-thinking, but it is too late now.

News – A phase-in process and the option to revisit the bylaw each year are key when considering the town’s increase in development charges, says Arnprior Mayor David Reid. Council passed the revised rates Jan 13. Changes were based on a Watson and Associates background study members reviewed in December. Town CAO Michael Wildman explained the development charges bylaw has not been indexed for many years and the amount the town has collected has been about 50 per cent less than what is required to support development. “With that 50 per cent gap the other half would likely have to come from ratepayers,” he said. Given amount of time that had passed and improvements in water and wastewater, the charge could have been around $15,000 when in fact the town was charging $6,000. “The town wasn’t charging anywhere near what it needed to fund the projects,” said Wildman. Council has decided to phase in the increase over five years to an eventual $12,500 in 2019. “This year we’re doing a minor increase of $1,500,” said Wildman. Staff is suggesting equal increments be done over five years. Reports that the fees are doubling aren’t ac-

curate, said Wildman. If council wants to change minds, if there’s more growth than expected, the bylaw can be revisited annually. “We have a five-year phase in,” he said, adding that Arnprior is not alone. “Many municipalities are revisiting development charges,” he said. “It is an increase that is long overdue and it will help offset an increase to taxpayers.” Development charges go to build sidewalks, streetlights and other infrastructure. Reid said he is committed to the principle of full cost recovery for development. “In an ideal world, full cost recovery is the ideal situation,” he said. CHARGES PHASED IN

The phase-in is important, as well as council revisiting the charges each year, he said. “Growth has to be sustainable but we want to make sure we don’t stifle it.” Growth over the next 18 years will cost $22 million, said Reid. “It’s going to come from development charges or from taxpayers,” he said, adding there are some collateral benefit to the ratepayers from that growth. Reeve Walter Stack voiced his support for the process. “For two reasons – the phase-in and the fact we can revisit it each year” he said. Stack said he’d like to have staff bring the bylaw back to council on natural schedule.

Chamber seeks nominations for new-look list of awards John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

News – The Arnprior and area business awards will have a new modern look this year. The Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce has announced that it has changed several of the awards in the 10th year of the program. The changes are designed to attract new interest in the process, explained chamber president Wes Schnob. “We hope to have more participation in the awards.” Chamber director Lynn Grinstead, a member of the chamber committee tasked to recommend changes, said it is anticipated the new awards will bring new nominations and interest to the process. “The new format will freshen up the award process,” she said, noting there haven’t been any changes for several years. By widening the range of businesses to be honoured, it is expected it will provide new ideas and new members for the chamber, as well as increasing the number of nominations, she added.

The chamber welcomes nominations for the awards, which will be listed on its website soon. A Business Achievements awards gala will be held at the Nick Smith Centre on the evening of Thursday, April 10. Grinstead said the chamber is inviting the Town of Arnprior and Township of McNabBraeside to also give out awards as they have in the past. Last year, the town gave out a Volunteer of the Year award instead of small and large busness awards as it had done previously. McNabBraeside again gave out business and agriculture appreciation awards. Instead of giving out awards for large and small business this year, the chamber will honour a business or business person of the year. It has also added four new awards: Young Entrepreneur/Young Community Involvement, Innovation award for Visual Creativity, Skilled Trade Business and New Business Venture. The chamber will retain the President’s award, usually a chamber member as chosen by the group’s president, but has discontinued the Chamber Member of the Year award.

The Business or Business Person of the Year Award will go to a nominee who has demonstrated excellence in business operations, including financial management and environmental practices; is viewed as a business leader in customer service, sales and marketing; and has a strong track record of community involvement and support. The award for either a young entrepreneur or for young community involvement will go to a new business venture run by someone under the age of 30. WINDOW DISPLAYS, SIGNAGE

The visual creativity award will be made to a business that “consistently strives to have an inviting and attractive exterior, is well maintained and appropriate for the type of business.” Criteria will include window displays (where applicable) that are fresh and seasonal and signage that is simple, easy to understand and looks attractive. The Skilled Trade Business award will be given to a business or individual that consistently demonstrates a high level of commit-

Ice storms can have lethal effects on birds Lifestyle - As everyone well knows, this winter has experienced a rollercoaster of weather. There has been extreme cold accompanied by chilling winds. However, most of our wild neighbours are well equipped to deal with frigid conditions and survived those spells. Recently the temperatures have risen well above the freezing mark with rain thrown into the climatic mix. This too has posed little problem for local animals. But between the two temperature extremes have been periods of freezing rain. Of all the challenges winter brings, freezing rain is undoubtedly the most lethal. Freezing rain affects animals in a variety of ways. Any animal exposed directly to it can have feathers or fur

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way covered in ice. This ice not only reduces a coat’s ability to keep its owner warm but also adds weight to wings and tails, making it difficult for birds to fly. Not only does this cause extra energy to be burned, it also slows a bird down, making it prone to being caught by predators.

There is an even more serious problem posed by freezing rain. When the snow’s surface becomes so hard and smooth that it supports our weight and makes us slip when we walk on it, it affects wild animals in more deadly ways. Small mammals such as mice and voles under the snow have difficulty in getting to the surface. If carbon dioxide levels build up where they roam, the ice layer can prevent them from tunnelling to the surface to acquire fresh air. Ice also creates a serious problem for the animals that eat mice and voles. Coyotes, Red Foxes, Barred Owls, and Red-tailed Hawks are but a few of the myriad predators that eat small rodents. When the snow is soft, those hunters fearlessly plunge into it after locating a meal with their refined hear-

ing. But when an ice barrier coats the snow, predators go hungry and some actually starve. And even if it doesn’t starve, a predator can be seriously injured in its attempts to break through the ice. Recently there have been reports of Snowy Owls with wings or legs damaged during efforts to catch animals under the ice. Ice also affects seed-eating birds. If seeds are buried in ice, Dark-eyed Juncos and other sparrows go hungry. Ruffed Grouse are affected by more than a lack of edible resources. On cold nights they dive into the snow and bury themselves below the surface. In their snug snow chambers, grouse spend frigid nights in relative comfort. But if temperatures rise and freezing rain falls overnight, the snow den becomes a snow tomb. And even if they are not trapped, the ice makes it impossible for grouse to exploit the snow’s insulation when temperatures plunge once more. The freezing rain this winter has brought severe hardship and likely many of our wild neighbours will not survive its effects. While this might make Nature seem cruel and uncaring, she is really nothing more than indifferent; Death is as PHOTOS BY MICHAEL RUNTZ every bit an integral part of her as is Red-tailed Hawks can break through thin ice to caplife. This is simply Nature’s way. The Nature Number is 613-387- ture food, but a thick ice crust can result in injury or starvation. 2503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

Maureen Carrier, holding a clipboard, and John Ruddy, right, are set to release a large number of bird watchers on the Arnprior area on a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon. The group hoped to see plenty of owls, including the Great Grey and Northern Hawk. Great niece of naturalist Charles Macnamara, Alison Stein, at left, was anticipating a glimpse at a Snowy Owl. Odds were in her favour during the Jan. 18 outing, as reports abound this year of Snowy Owl spottings.

Rental subsidies available Reid Bros. food bank tradition going strong for low-income families News - Funding has been made available for lower income families in Renfrew County to temporarily help them with their rent. The short term rent program provides a set allowance to landlords to help households afford private market rentals. The County of Renfrew, in partnership with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, is making the funds available through the Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative (CHPI). The program enhances access to the private rental housing market and expands housing options for low-income households by bridging the gap between the market rent and the actual rent a household can afford to pay for accommodations in the private housing sector. Landlords will receive a rental allowance from the County of Renfrew for $150 per month for an adult or $250 per month for a family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Adequate and affordable housing for all is vitally important to our health and well-being as a community,â&#x20AC;? said Warden Peter Emon.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This funding provides assistance to families and individuals who are struggling to ensure they have accommodation while they are trying to meet daily needs. The CHPI Rental Allowance enables us as a community to provide healthier and more supportive communities.â&#x20AC;? Renfrew County Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social services committee chair Don Rathwell added that: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The CHPI Rental Allowance Program will assist individuals to remain housed, resulting in improved quality of life that we are committed to providing in Renfrew County.â&#x20AC;? The program funding is limited and on a first-come firstserved basis. There is a formal application process that is administered through Renfrew County Housing Corporation. The application must provide supporting information and documentation as required, and incomplete applications will not be considered for program funding. For more information and/or an application, call Renfrew County Housing Corporation toll-free at 1-855-432-6450 or visit www.countyofrenfrew. on.ca.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tradition that keeps on giving. Reid Bros. held its 19th annual food bank fundraiser in December. The Arnprior GM dealershipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customers were in their usual generous mood, providing $4,820 for the food bank in just over two weeks. The company chipped in with a $2,500 donation, meaning the Arnprior and District Food Bank received $7,320.30 in early January to help tide it over during the lean winter months.

News - The OPP and Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) kicked off Snowmobile Safety Week (Jan. 18-26) by appealing to snowmobilers to slow down. Top OPP officials were joined by OFSC vice-president Graham Snyder, members of the Highway Safety Division and other OPP and OFSC members to share information about the risks and dangers associated with snowmobiling. The OPP also shed light on the five fatal snowmobile collisions that have taken the lives of six people so far this season, citing speed as a causal factor in all five of these incidents, four of which occurred on roads and none on OFSC prescribed trails. According to the OPP, a change in behaviour is needed in some segments of the snowmobile community because speed was a causal factor in half of the 18 snowmobile fatalities that occurred last season (2012-2013) and the other half were attributed to drinking and riding. The OPP and OFSC praised the collaboration of the S.T.O.P. (Snowmobile Trail Officer Patrol) and S.A.V.E. (Snowmobile ATV and Vessel Enforcement) unit members in their efforts to make snowmobiling in Ontario safe through a combination of enforcement and education. Frigid temperatures, unstable terrain, lakes and rivers and reduced visibility were identified as some of the natural elements that make snowmo-

bilers a particularly vulnerable group of riders. The OPP and OFSC emphasized the importance of riding sober, avoiding lakes and rivers and they recommended staying on OFSC prescribed trails. As part of the kick-off, S.T.O.P. Chair Andy Chvedukas recounted

a story about a significant snowmobile collision that almost cost him his life and left him severely injured. Chvedukas’ snowmobile collided with a tree when he glanced back for just a few seconds to see if his fellow riders were still behind him.

John Yakabuski dropped the ceremonial puck and sang the national anthem before the sledge hockey game started. He said it was a great opportunity for those who have never played before, and a fine beginning to the celebrations. “This is a great kickoff of the 50th year. I hope people enjoy the effort put out from playing it and that the firefighters participating can gain an appreciation,” Yakabuski said. “I’m also honoured to be asked to sing O Canada today.” Nicholson and the firefighters won 3-2. The team included Sledge Hockey of Eastern Ontario’s Chelsea Powell and Leonard Laventure, along with firefighters Mark Griese, Mike Guest, Jesse Gale, Chad Barker, Chad Scerba, Michael Farr and Mackie McLean. The Renfrew Ice Pickers included Chris Bujold, Gary Inglis, Debbie Broome, Alex Duggan, Rebekka Zimmerling, Geraldine Prince, Dan Laplante, Christine Drouilliard, Liz McFarlane and Allan Yull.

Packers hang on to second with win, loss Sean Marcellus

Sports – The Arnprior Jr. B Packers continue to hold second place in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League Valley Division after earning two out of four points last week. PACKERS 3 ALMONTE 2 SO (1-0)

Last Wednesday saw the third-place Almonte Thunder roll into town to make up a game postponed earlier in the season. The first period belonged to the Packers as Arnprior captain John McLean lit the lamp twice in a span of 2:29 to put his team up 2-0. Erik Miksik turned aside all 10 shots he faced in the frame. The second period was the complete opposite as the Thunder generated all the offensive opportunities and found the net twice to make it a 2-2 game after two peri-

ods of play. The play would go back and forth during the third, but both Erik Miksik and Almonte goalie Alex Daley turned aside everything thrown at them, forcing the game into overtime. In the extra frame, Arnprior was called for a tripping penalty, giving Almonte the power play, but Miksik was up for the challenge, stopping all eight shots he faced and giving the Packers a chance to win the game in the shootout. That is exactly what they did, as Damian Armstrong scored the lone shootout goal and Miksik stopped all three Almonte shooters. The Packers improved to 3-0 in the shootout this season, as Miksik has only allowed one shooter out of 11 to beat him. PACKERS 1 OTTAWA 4

Chris Marchand tied the score 1-1 with five minutes remaining in the second period, but Ottawa answered with just 35 seconds left on the clock to take a 2-1 lead into the dressing room. The Packers outshot Ottawa 21-10 in the third, but goaltender Drew Rienhardt stood on his head for the Canadians and former Packers forward Casey Doner scored twice in the frame to preserve the victory for Ottawa.

With the game tied. the feverish pace continued for both teams until the Senators got the go-ahead goal with 1:55 left in the third period. The Packers pulled their goalie Sam Freemark and took it to the Senators until the curfew clock ended the game. Packers coaches Tyler Baskin and Tyler Craig said it was a disappointing loss, but both teams played very well.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas and got through that cold snap alright. The New Year brought at least a temporary warming of the weather. It’s also brought with it a case of election fever in Ontario. It seems that everyone; whether they are media outlets, political pundits, politicians themselves, or average citizens, almost everyone is speculating that there will be a provincial election in the spring. As Ontario has a minority parliament currently, our election date is not fixed. It will happen when either the government decides to call it on their own, or my PC party combines with the NDP on a matter of confidence to defeat the government. The earliest opportunity for the defeat of the government on a confidence motion is likely not before they table their budget, expected sometime in late March. However Kathleen Wynne, in spite of her constant statements that she wants the government to continue, is conducting herself very much like someone preparing for an election campaign. Her actions in Toronto following the ice storm are evidence of just that. Her going around handing out food baskets and gift cards, was clearly orchestrated to generate a great deal of positive publicity for her. Everything that Kathleen Wynne did in Toronto during the ice storm was done in front of a camera. In spite of her attempt to make this a good news story, it appears that her decision to roll this out without thinking has backfired in a really big way. As it turned out to be so poorly organized, it of itself was a disaster. By the way, for people in the Valley losing their power is something that in many cases happens a number of times a year. Can anyone tell me the last time they’ve received gift cards from the Ontario government when they’ve lost their power? I know, I know, the answer is never. Speaking of elections, voters in Niagara Falls and Thornhill will go to the polls on February 13th. By-elections to fill the vacancies in those riding were called on Wednesday January 15th. Much like the summer by-elections of last year, the Liberals have scheduled the timing of them to their advantage. The Parliament is not sitting so we cannot ask questions of them every day in the Legislature, and you can rest assured that it will be a constant parade of Cabinet Ministers into the riding promising the moon to the respective constituents. This has already started with the Liberals promising to build a new hospital in Niagara Falls, something they had little interest in doing only months ago. They’ve also kicked in a cool $75 million to the wine industry in the Niagara region. It’s amazing how much of your money they have to spend when it’s used to buy votes. We’ll watch those by-elections closely, and I hope to be down campaigning in them when I have the opportunity. From now until the general election is called, all Ontarians should brace themselves for an onslaught of political announcements. I believe every message you hear from the provincial government at this point will be designed to purchase the votes of some segment of Ontario’s population. When the general election does come there will be no shortage of things to talk about, but the one issue that keeps coming back over and over again is the cost of electricity. Through the holidays I spoke to many constituents and business owners, and I apologize if this sounds like a broken record, but almost the first thing out of peoples’ mouths is “what the *____* can we do about the cost of that damned hydro?” Unfortunately there’s little we can do to change policy while we’re in opposition, but we’re looking forward to doing just that should we be successful in the next general election. Ontario deserves so much better than it’s getting now.

Valley-based ownership gives Junior A hockey team new look jessica.cunha@metroland.com

4-HAND EUCHRE TOURNAMENT SERIES

$700 IN PRIZES

SUBMITTED

The Kanata Lasers (formerly the Stallions) Junior A hockey team has gone back to its original name under new ownership, which came into effect earlier this month. Former Arnprior Packer Cory Greer and Nick Urbisci purchased the squad from John Russo. the focus will be on creating a stronger team. “We’re really rebuilding right now. We’ve committed to picking up the speed on that, making it happen,” he said. Greer, who played junior B with the Packers, has been coaching minor hockey for 17 years. His wife, Kim, is president of the Renfrew Minor Hockey Association. They live in Renfrew with their three boys, who all play minor hockey. “I love the hockey,” said Greer. “I enjoy working with kids. I really enjoy going out and watching hockey.

This (purchase) was a good opportunity to be involved.” Greer filled in the players on the upcoming changes just before the holidays. “We had a team get together; filled them in on what the plans are and they seemed to be very excited about it,” he said. “Our plan is to have a brand new start to the franchise, bring it back to one of the most successful and respected franchises in the CCHL.” Lou Nistico, general manager of the Lasers, said he thinks the name change was a good call. “I think it’s great go-

ing back to the old name; there’s a lot of history there,” he said. “I think it’s important to go back to the roots.” The team will continue playing in their Stallions’ jerseys until they can be replaced – the start of the next season at the latest – and the Lasers logo is being redesigned, said Greer. John Hill, who spent the past four years as general manager of junior B team, the Ottawa Junior Canadians, has been hired as the director of hockey operations. The Junior Canadians won the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League championship twice in the past decade (2010 and 2013), the only team to accomplish that feat. “His results speak for themselves. I think we’re very fortunate to bring a guy like that on board,” said Greer. Arnprior businessman Corey Foster will remain the Lasers’ head coach, but other changes will be coming down the line, said Greer, although he wouldn’t comment about

what they might be. Another Arnprior resident, Dustin Dorken, is an assistant coach with the team. “In the big picture, we’ve got to turn this team around,” Greer said. “I’m impressed with the team. We have a lot of the right players,” he added. “We want this to be a place that kids want to come to start off their careers; where they can continue their careers at a higher level whether it be in schooling or in the OHL or wherever they end up.” Lasers forward Derian Plouffe, 18, of Nepean will attend Niagara University in the United States on a full scholarship this year. He was also named to the Canada East roster for the 2013 World Junior A Challenge and the CCHL roster for the 2013 Central Canada Cup All-Star Challenge. “We’re going to be losing one of the best players in the league, which is what this is all about,” said Greer. “This is all about the kids.”

Rental rate increases cut into oldtimers hockey ice time

JOHN WAHAY/SUBMITTED

Bonspiel honours Gladys’ memory

Sports - The Arnprior Oldtimers Hockey League has responded to the increase of ice rental rates at the Nick Smith Centre by reducing its ice time and levying a $20 charge on out-of-town residents. In a message to its more than 100 members, the league captains note that the rental rate increased “significantly” at the beginning of the year because Arnprior and McNab-Braeside no longer have a recreation agreement. “To lessen the impact for the remainder of this season, we have decided to reduce our ice time for the balance of the year, from 2.5 hours to two hours per night,” the league announced on Jan. 5.

The Karen Oatman rink won the Gladys Armsden Memorial Bonspiel Jan. 11 at the Arnprior Curling Club. Team members, from left, are vice Mackenzie Hartwick, skip Karen Oatman, second Joanne Bailey and lead Holly McCarvill The club thanks Bruce Armsden, who makes a donation annually to support the event to honour the memory of his mother Gladys Armsden. Gladys enjoyed curling and was a great supporter of the fundraising efforts of the club in particular organizing many of the catered events. The ladies enjoyed two games of curling and a wonderful lunch cooked by Joyce Murray and served by the men of the club. Thank you to all the participants and volunteers who made it a fun day.

In addition, each player not an Arnprior resident will need to pay $20 to the league to make up the balance of the increase, says the announcement. The league’s ice time has been reduced by starting the second game each evening 10 minutes earlier. Games now go for 50 minutes. A new schedule for the league’s tournament will also reflect a reduction in ice time. The impact of the changes will be reviewed by the league when it determines rates for the 2014-15 season. “We hope that you agree that this is the best solution to a significant problem,” says the announcement.

Beat the winter blues at Pakenham Frost Festival kkent@perfprint.ca

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Have the winter blues got you down? January is often considered the most depressing month of the year, with the cold temperatures, short days and the numerous reports of bad weather. Area residents, however, have found a way to combat the season of sadness with the Pakenham Frost Festival. Beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 22 and running until Saturday, Feb. 1, the festival aims to get families out and about to enjoy some wintertime fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are several opportunities during the festival for families to take part in fun activities,â&#x20AC;? said Shelley Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor of the Pakenham Civitan Club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something for people of all ages.â&#x20AC;? The festival is a long-time tradition in Pakenham, and has been around for as long as many residents can remember. Held near the beginning of each year, usually in January, the event is meant to help people see the fun in winter, instead of just hanging around inside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold and not so pleasant outside,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but there are plenty of fun things you can do that you can only do in the winter.â&#x20AC;? And to extend the good times even further this year, the festival is being held over two weekends, instead of the traditional duration of just one weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That way busy families have more opportunities to fit at least one day in with their kids,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor said. The festival was scheduled to kick off with a skate-a-thon

Marguirite gets her payback for being a show-off said it was nothing but plain rabbit. The very thought of the number of precious little rabbits, which I loved with a passion, who had lost their fur to make that coat, was enough to turn my stomach. And certainly didn’t do anything to make me like Marguirite any better! It was also the year we had more snow than anyone could remember. It was banked all around the school yard. And at the back, where a board fence separated the yard from the openair rink, the Senior Fourth boys had piled the snow high, creating a slide that only went downwards about six or seven feet, but it was enough to give us lots of fun at recess, FRIDAY JAN. 24TH TO THURSDAY JAN 30TH 2014 sliding down on 245 DANIEL ST S, ARNPRIOR our bottoms, or on opened-up flat cardboard boxes the boys

Lifestyle - It was the year bad Marguirite appeared at the Northcote School all decked out in a white fur coat. She vowed it was the most expensive fur you could buy, but my brother Emerson and his best friend Cecil, after examining it closely,

THIS WEEK’S FEATURE

had hauled from Briscoe’s General Store. That day wasn’t any different from any other inside the one-room school house. Miss Crosby ran the place like an army general, and even though Marguirite wanted to keep her coat on, Miss Crosby wasn’t having any of that nonsense. “It’ll smell of cow byre,” Marguirite said, glaring at the boys who had to milk cows before coming to school. But one look from Miss Crosby told her to get it off and hang it on a hook at the back of the room just like everyone else. We couldn’t wait for recess. The half hour would be spent sliding down the mound of snow in the school yard, and Miss Crosby had warned the Senior Fourth boys that everyone got a turn or they would suffer her wrath when recess was over.It didn’t take long for us girls to get on our snow suits, galoshes, hats and mitts, and the boys into their heavy jackets and gum rubbers, let me tell you! And just before we were heading out, Miss Crosby caught Marguirite by her sleeve and told her she had had a note from her Mother, and there was no sliding down the hill for her in her white fur coat! Well, there she stood at the bottom of the little mound, looking for

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

all the world like an orphan as the rest of us careened down the little hill, squealing with delight all the way. Both Emerson and Cecil were standing at the top, and as soon as anyone fell to the mound to begin the slide, they gave a good push and away we went like a bullet, landing in the soft snow at the bottom. I was immediately suspicious of Emerson and Cecil, after they had whispered, grinned from ear to ear, and invited Marguirite to have a slide. “Don’t worry about your coat. You can sit on this big piece of cardboard, and you won’t even touch the snow.” Well, it didn’t take long for Marguirite to scurry up the mound, grab a hold of the upper board of the rink fence and prepare herself to sit down on the cardboard the boys had put in place. Well, that’s when all heck broke loose! Just as she was lowering herself,

Cecil grabbed the box tossing it aside, Emerson gave Marguirite a mighty push, and down she went, fur coat and all, to the bottom of the mound, screaming all the way. When she stopped, the coat was up around her neck, the fur hat was nowhere to be seen, and that day she had on blue fleeced lined bloomers like the rest of us. She went roaring into the school like someone possessed. By the time recess was over, Miss Crosby had the coat draped over a chair by the stove, and Cecil had brought in the white fur hat and handed it to the teacher saying with a voice like sugar, “Marguirite must have lost this.” Well, that was the end of the white fur coat at the Northcote School. Joyce said it didn’t look any the worse for wear when Marguirite came prancing into the United Church the next Sunday wearing it, and the hat. And even if Miss Crosby knew what had happened outside at the snow slide, she said nothing. My older and wiser sister Audrey said Miss Crosby probably wasn’t any more impressed with the white fur coat than were the rest of us at the Northcote School.

Be on the lookout for Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, society urges

More than 100 give gift of life at Jan. 8 blood donor clinic Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Another successful Arnprior blood donor clinic was held Jan. 8 at the Nick Smith Centre. Despite the bad weather, 117 people turned out to donate blood at the Canadian Blood Services clinic sponsored once again by the Arnprior Rotary Club. The donations could potentially save 117 lives, note clinic organizers.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to make sure theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting the help they need at every stage of the disease. As devastating as the news can be, early diagnosis brings relief to families, gives them control over their situation and adds more years of living active and fulfilling lives.â&#x20AC;? There are about 747,000 Canadians are living with Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and dementia, with the number expected to increase to 1.4 million in less than 20 years. People can be affected as early as their 40s and 50s. Growing evidence shows brain changes resulting in dementia can begin 25 years before symptoms appear. Throughout January, Canadians are encouraged to visit the Alzheimer Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign website, www.earlydiagnosis.ca, to learn how to spot the signs of dementia, understand the benefits of a diagnosis and prepare for a doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit.

  

                            

THIS WEEKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S FEATURE R0012520985.0123

However, earlier diagnosis opens the door to important information, resources and support through local Alzheimer Societies, which help people with dementia focus on their abilities to remain independent in their homes and communities longer, says the society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With early diagnosis, people can access medications that, although not effective for everyone, have the greatest impact when taken early.â&#x20AC;? And on a practical level, an early diagnosis gives someone the chance to explain the changes happening in their life to family and friends and allows families to plan ahead, adds the society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seventy-four per cent of Canadians know someone with dementia and more and more Canadians will continue to develop the disease,â&#x20AC;? said society CEO Mimi LowiYoung.

R0012515940

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As many as 50 per cent of Canadians with dementia are not diagnosed early enough, losing precious time when care and support can make a tremendous difference in their quality of life and avert unnecessary crises for their families, says the Alzheimer Society. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why during Alzheimer Awareness Month (January), the society is launching a new campaign, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Early diagnosis keeps your life from unravellingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, to promote the benefits of early diagnosis. But fear and stigma continue to be huge barriers to seeking help, says the society in a news release. In a recent Nanos survey, 60 per cent of Canadians polled said it would be harder to disclose if they, or someone close to them, had Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease compared to other diseases because of the social stigma associated with mental health issues.

Trash the ash: Five-step plan to quit smoking and win a car News – For many, the New Year represents a fresh start - and with nearly 16 per cent of people who are smokers accounting for 30 per cent of all cancer deaths in Canada, a popular resolution may be to quit smoking. “We are thrilled to be able to motivate and reward individuals who quit smoking through The Driven to Quit Challenge,” said Canadian Cancer

Society tobacco control and cancer prevention director John Atkinson, “Quitting smoking is one of the most difficult things a person can face. “In addition to providing a car and cash prizes, we know that people can be successful in quitting by making a plan and getting support through accessible resources such as our SmokR0012518886

ers’ Helpline. We hope that Ontarians who smoke take the opportunity to quit to improve their health and make 2014 their healthiest year yet.” The society urges smokers to follow the five-step plan to help ensure that by next year they’ll be celebrating a smoke-free anniversary. Know your reasons for quitting: While winning a car is a great reason to quit, there are probably many others. Write down your reasons for quitting smoking and keep that list with you so you can refer to it often. A visual reminder just might be the encouragement you need to keep those temptations at bay. Try selecting a few of the most important reasons on your list and post them around the places you used to smoke. Prepare for cravings and withdrawal symptoms: No matter how good your reasons are for quitting, you may still find yourself craving a cigarette. The best way to defeat temptation is to avoid it, so change your routine and stay away from the places you used to smoke. Avoid events with a lot of other smokers by suggesting alternative social gatherings that don’t emphasize smoking. Get a little help from your friends: Research shows that people are more successful in changing their

behaviour when they have a support system. Ask a friend or family member to be your support buddy. You can sign up for The Driven to Quit Challenge with your buddy and can also call Smokers’ Helpline to speak to a Quit Coach at 1-877-513-5333. Don’t give up: If you have a slip, don’t beat yourself up about it and most importantly, don’t give up. Quitting smoking is hard work and often takes many attempts. Reward yourself: Plan special celebrations on the anniversary of your quit date, but you don’t have to wait a year to treat yourself. Smaller,

more frequent rewards prove to be just as beneficial. Made it to one week smoke-free? Treat yourself to a massage. One month? Go out with your support buddy for a nice meal. While winning a car or cash are huge rewards for your efforts, the biggest reward of all is the health and quality of life you will gain - your body will thank you. For a chance to win a grand prize of a new car, register for The Driven to Quit Challenge and stay smokefree for the month of March. Visit www.DriventoQuit.ca for more information. R0012515970

Inpatient Christmas Spirit

Seeking Volunteers for Partners in Caring

Submitted by Michelle Johnston

There are more than 30,000 people in our catchment area, from Renfrew County, West Carleton and Mississippi Mills. We serve people through our Emergency Department, Outpatient Clinics, in our Operating Rooms, on our Inpatient floor, in the community through our Assisted Living Services Program and with long term care at The Grove. It is easy to imagine how each of us could be touched by Arnprior Regional Health. This could be your father or mother, your child or your neighbour. To keep care close to home and to continue to provide you and our community with the best possible hospital, nursing home and health care, we need your help – for better equipment and better facilities. There is many ways to support Partners in Caring from volunteering on the board of directors, participating in fundraising events or running your own third party event. Partners in Caring (PIC) is the charitable of Arnprior Regional Health. Through fundraising PIC helps support the mission of Arnprior Regional Health (ADMH, the Grove, and Assisted Living Services) by funding the purchase of much needed medical equipment. The Partners in Caring Board of Directors is currently seeking volunteers to serve as Directors on its Board for terms beginning March 2014. If you have leadership experience, a desire to help our community, or a skill that would enhance the Partners in Caring Board, please consider applying for membership on the Board of Directors of Partners in Caring. Interested individuals may contact Partners in Caring Vice Chair, Trevor Reid at 613-623-3137 or via email trevor.reid@reidbros.ca. The deadline for applications is February 13, 2014.

Health Care Goals for 2014

ARH staff entertained by singing Christmas Carols and Hymns to all the Restorative Care Patients, and some of their family members at the Christmas Luncheon held Monday, December 23/13.A huge Thank you from all the patients, and Activities Coordinator Michelle Johnston. It was a wonderful afternoon.

The majority of New Year’s resolution tend to focus on our health. We decide to quit smoking, give up chocolate, drink less alcohol or caffeine, eat healthier, hit the gym, and of course lose weight. Small lifestyle changes can truly make a positive impact on your health and help prevent many health related issues. By getting physically more active, or losing even a small amount of weight from your abdominal area, this can help to prevent development of Type 2 Diabetes. For those living with diabetes in our community, please note that Arnprior Regional Health has a Diabetes Education Program, located at the Hospital. Any member of the community can self-refer to this program by making a simple phone call to 613-623-3166 30 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, January 23, 2014

HEALTH

Connected to your community

Butt out: Your lungs will love you people quit. Among the more popular is a range of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products. Nicotine is not harmful, but it is the addictive substance that keeps people wanting to light up. NRT works by giving smokers the nicotine they used to get from cigarettes. It comes in different forms – as a gum, a patch, a lozenge, a mouth spray and an inhaler – most of which are available over the counter at pharmacies. These types of NRT are a better choice than getting nicotine from smoking. Prescription medicines that help to reduce cravings are also available. Ask your health-care provider which therapy is right for you.

The Ontario Lung Association offers several tools to help people quit smoking: • A free workbook called Journey 2 Quit that is packed with ideas to help you make a quitting plan. • Certified Respiratory Educators are available to offer advice to help you quit. Phone the Lung Health Information Line at 1-888-344-LUNG (5864) or email info@ on.lung.ca. • For a different type of distraction when a craving hits, download the free Quit & Get Fit iPhone app from the iTunes app store. Players are challenged to take a deep breath and blow into their phones, using their lung capacity to play a game of hockey or golf. • The Quit & Get Fit program is also available at select fitness facilities.

News - Ontario is taking new steps to deter youth from smoking. The province will introduce legislation and propose regulatory changes that would, if passed, strengthen the Smoke-Free Ontario Act by increasing penalties for selling tobacco to children and further limit smoking in public areas. The proposed measures include: * Prohibiting smoking on playgrounds, sport fields, and restaurant and bar patios. * Increasing fines for those who sell tobacco to youth, making Ontario’s penalties the highest in Canada. * Banning the sale of flavoured tobacco products to make smoking less appealing to young people.

* Strengthening enforcement to allow for testing of tobacco in water pipes in indoor public places. * Prohibiting tobacco sales on post-secondary education campuses and specified provincial government properties. The measures build on steps the government has already taken, including protecting children from tobacco exposure in motor vehicles, prohibiting tobacco use in indoor public places and workplaces, and banning the sale of flavoured cigarillos. In Ottawa, the city has approved the phasing in of a smoking ban in all of its subsidized housing units and properties after most residents backed the move. Preventing youth from starting to use to-

bacco and protecting them from the harmful effects of second-hand smoke will help to achieve the government’s Action Plan for Health Care goal to have the lowest smoking rate in the country. Polls indicate 66 per cent of people in Ontario want smoking to be prohibited on restaurant and bar patios. A total of 58 Ontario municipalities representing 61 per cent of the province’s population already ban smoking on playgrounds. Each year, tobacco claims 13,000 lives in Ontario — equivalent to 36 lives every day. Ontario’s smoking rate fell from 24.5 per cent in 2000 to 19 per cent in 2012, representing 255,000 fewer smokers.

Province to get tougher on teenage smoking

R0182329940

Lifestyle - There are more than 1.6 million smokers in Ontario and research shows that up to 80 per cent of them have tried to quit. Tobacco use is responsible for more than 13,000 premature deaths every year in Ontario, making it the number one cause of preventable illness and death in the province. But it is extremely difficult to break the vice-like grip of nicotine addiction and hardly anyone gets there on the first try, says the Ontario Lung Association in a National Non-Smoking Week (Jan. 19-25) new release. In fact, it may take some people make five or six attempts before they finally manage to quit smoking for good. Fortunately, no one has to do it alone. There are many supports available to help

Trip to Egypt inspires new book that will be launched in Arnprior

Lifestyle – A Valley nun’s book about a “mythic journey” to Egypt will be launched in Arnprior Friday, Feb. 14. Grey Sister Anne Kathleen McLaughlin will unveil her book, ‘Called to Egypt on the Back of the Wind’, at the Galilee Centre from 2:30-4 p.m. Borealis Press president Frank Tierney is inviting the public to attend the launch at the centre’s velvet room. McLaughlin will be in attendance to sign books and take questions. Admission is free. Light refreshments will be served. The 206-page book retails for $19.95. Called to Egypt on the Back of the Wind is a traveller’s tale of a journey to Egypt in 2008 led by the visionary teacher Jean Houston. The trip made a marked impression

on McLaughlin, who says in a news release promoting the launch that Egypt was the place where she found her soul. McLaughlin is an obvious fan of Houston, whose heart “knows the patterns of mythology and spirituality that an ancient people drew upon to build a civilization of unparalleled wisdom and genius along the Nile River some 5,000 years ago.” She notes that Houston created for her students a “mythic journey with story and ritual, exploration of temples, tombs, and pyramids, laughter and song.” McLaughlin, who is from Pembroke, is a storyteller “who seeks meaning, magic and mystery in ancient tales, and in life experiences,” says the news release. Drawing from her early years as a teacher, communications director for the Catholic Dioceses of OtJUNIOR KINDERGARTEN tawa and Thunder Bay and AND KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION from her retreats and workshops, she “works to weave FOR SEPTEMBER 1, 2014 a spirituality that reveals the JANUARY 27 – FEBRUARY 7, 2014 inclusive presence of love in a universe 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. whose magnificence we scarcely glimpse.” If you are unable to register at this time please contact the school principal and make arrangements for a Her earlier books include mutually convenient time to register.

Community – With the support of her family, her friends and those in her community, Dew Rotar of Clayton continues to heal following her double-lung transplant at Toronto General Hospital (TGH) last month. Dew, 33, has pulmonary fibrosis - the same disease that plagues Ottawa’s Hélène Campbell. A fundraiser, presented by People First of Lanark County (PFoLC) and the Life4Dew Committee, raised $2,000 to help Rotar and her family. Once Rotar is released from hospital, she will have to live in Toronto for a minimum of three months, a requirement of TGH, a world leader in lung transplantation. He sole support is her mother, Leslirae Rotor, who has no income and used up her personal resources over the last few years being Dew’s full-time caregiver.

Dew is living on a small disability pension. “The weather was rough, but the fundraiser was a total success,” said Rotor family friend Terry Garwood. “The (Rotor) family is totally thrilled to have this much support and goodwill from the community,” he added. Festivities included food, a silent auction and music from a handful of the area’s top entertainers, including Brea Lawrenson, George Turcotte and the Earthtones, Johnny Spinks, Brent King and Lyle Dillabough. Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren attended the fundraiser, thanking the

which made me realize that it was special.”

February concert postponed Guitarists impressed with Arnprior crowds, venue Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Following the great success of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s G8 concert in Arnprior, town resident and classical guitarist Philip Candelaria has another exciting event to bring to town. Candelaria, a member of the Canadian Guitar Quartet, made local headlines last year by offering area music lovers a rare treat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a concert featuring the combined CGQ and Austrian Salzberg quartets. And while he was scheduled to bring another of his groups, the Latin Quarter, to town in February, music fans will have to wait just a little bit longer for the next treat. The Latin Quarter concert originally scheduled for Feb. 1 at Grace St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church at 7:30 p.m. has now been moved to Saturday, June 7, same location and time, reports Candelaria. Tickets will go on sale April 7 at the Arnprior Book Shop. Candelaria was quite pleased with Arnprior and areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to the G8 concert held at Grace St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church.

A couple of the Salzburg guitar quartet members show off a gift given to them of the G8â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut CD framed as a memento. All members of the G8 were pleased with their visit to Arnprior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The G8 tour was very successful, with standing ovations received at all concerts,â&#x20AC;? said Canderia in a press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The G8 performers singled out the Arnprior audience as their favourite (along with the one on Manitoulin) and the Arnprior venue as one of the best on the tour for acoustics.â&#x20AC;? The European visitors, along with Candelariaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CGQ partners, were pleased with

the local stop, which included a show at Arnprior District High School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also had great success with youth in our school shows,â&#x20AC;? said Candelaria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The performers also mentioned that Arnprior was their favourite stop on the tour they loved the warm reactions from our local audience and the more tranquil time they enjoyed in Arnprior.â&#x20AC;?

A program providing specific training and educational opportunities for young athletes ages 7-12 with intellectual disabilities, assisting them to develop more sports-specific skills that will contribute to their future participation in sports. Sport-specific skills like jump-

ing, throwing, kicking, running, catching, striking, agility, balance, coordination, and sleep will be introduced and developed. Our program goal is for each participant to have improved in one or more of the following areas: physical skill acquisition, physical fitness, social

skill development, decision marking, knowledge and understanding, and a true and lasting appreciation of physical activity. The FUNdamentals program is intended as a vehicle for fostering and developing improved social, physical, and cognitive abilities of young athletes, and building the foundation for future sports success. We wish to introduce development and fundamental movement skills. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a wonderful opportunity for participants to interact with peers in a fun environment while learning and improving upon basic motor skills. As well, both children and caregivers will be educated about nutrition and the importance of a balanced lifestyle, which will help them stay healthy throughout their lives.

Program runs from 6:30pm to 7:30pm but doors open from 6:15pm to 7:45pm Free play time before and after each session. Cost: $80.00 per athlete for the 12 week program - snacks will be included.

PETS

Connected to your community

Is a reoccurring flea problem still ticking you off? Lifestyle - Hard to believe, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s January and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still seeing dogs and cats with fleas. What makes this so unbelievable is that fleas cannot survive in such cold weather. Flea season is typically July or August with a possibility of going into September depending on how hot and humid that month is. So why are we seeing fleas at this time of year? The problem is that pet owners are getting the wrong advice on how to treat the infestation and the fleas keep on

thriving in our homes with no threat of elimination. Most of the time the course of treatment is to treat the pet and nothing is done to deal with the environment such as your home, cottage, carpets, floors, hardwood, furniture, bedding and even your vehicle. Most owners do not properly administer the products that they buy or delay applying it until it is too late or forget to apply it at all. Even when your pet is protected, the fleas can and will survive somewhere

in your home until the pet is no longer protected and then they jump back on for a nice hot blood meal. Usually the problem starts from the previous summer. Typically a pet owner will find an infested pet in the summer and do what they believe is the correct treatment in dealing with the little buggers, only to be told by a pet groomer somewhere in the middle of winter that their pet is infested. This could have been avoided if the pet owner would have been given the correct advice.

You must treat both the pet and the environment. I have seen situations where owners go through cycles of fleas for years without effectively dealing with them. In order to remove fleas from your home and your pet, I would recommend that you speak with a professional pet groomer. Make sure that your groomer has an understanding in how to deal with fleas and the various flea products. Just simply bathing your pet or heading off to the store or veterinarian is no guarantee

streams also poses a â&#x20AC;&#x153;huge dangerâ&#x20AC;? to animals at large,â&#x20AC;? says the SPCA, urging owners to keep their pets safe and in care and control at all times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pet owners need to be extremely vigilant with their pets around melting ice and water when temperatures start to increase,â&#x20AC;? said SPCA chief inspector Connie Mallory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These pose a significant health and safety danger to our pets.â&#x20AC;? In the event you suspect that a pet may have ingested harmful chemicals, contact your local veterinarian immediately, advises the SPCA.

Chests Nuts invite you to dance the night away

Community - The Prior Chest Nuts Breast Cancer Dragon Boat Team is inviting the public to a fundraising dance this Saturday, Jan. 25.

LARGEST IN HISTORY

Arnprior District High School graduate Jennilea Hortop, above, has joined 50 other cyclists from around the world on a 12,000-kilometre journey from the north to the south of Africa as part of Tour D’Afrique, which is raising funds for the Peace by Piece initiative. The organization supports Peace Matunda Orphanage and School, a cause near and dear to Hortop’s heart. Hortop first came to know Peace Matunda in June 2009 when she travelled with her friend and sister to the school and spent six weeks working with children there. At right, she reads to some of her friends. To donate, visit peacebypieceafrica.org or check out the Facebook page Peace by Piece, Inc., where updates are regularly posted.

The Chest Nuts promise that they’ll ensure Arnprior will be well represented at what’s being billed as the largest event in Dragon Boat history. With the community’s help, “Arnprior’s own breast cancer survivors team can make a strong showing there,” they say. Tickets for the dance cost $10 and include a snack table. la ___ 34.
