No quarry hurry OMB to hear the five appeals in 2015

Where have all the sparrows gone? – Page 11

EDUCATION

News – It’s apparent the debate over Miller Paving’s proposed Braeside Quarry expansion will not be resolved anytime soon. Residents and lawyers packed McNab-Braeside council chambers Jan. 29 for a prehearing into five appeals to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) involving township council’s decision on the con-

troversial project. After listening to all sides, OMB official Helen Jackson set aside four weeks for the appeal starting March 2, 2015. That’s right, 2015, not 2014. Jackson explained that the board wouldn’t be available to hear such a lengthy appeal until November at the earliest. She gave the appellants the choice of November 2014 or March 2015 for the appeals. See OMB Page 5

House fire on MacDonald Street Arnprior fire chief John Okum reports a man managed to safely escape a MacDonald Street home that caught fire just after 8 a.m. Tuesday. A passer-by alerted the sleeping man by pounding on his door. The Arnprior fire department attended to douse the fire and protect nearby homes. Firefighters retrieved a pet rabbit from the home. The fire started outside at the back of the home, moving up the exterior siding and spreading to the attic. Okum thanks the public for alerting the owner and making the 9-1-1 call.

BIA meeting Monday News – The Town of Arnprior has circulated a letter to all downtown property and business owners urging them to attend a meeting Monday, Feb. 10 to decide the fate of the Business Improvement Area (BIA). The meeting will be held at 8 a.m. in the Arnprior Public Library meeting room. “The meeting will have a large impact on the future of Arnprior’s BIA and we ask that you please make every effort to attend this meeting in order to ensure the continuation of the Downtown Business Improvement Area,� says the letter. “Please remember your vote is your voice. Shape the vision of tomorrow’s BIA by voting on Feb. 10.� Arnprior council agreed on Jan. 27 that the number of votes needed for the continuation of the BIA should be 25 and not 50 as previously determined. An earlier meeting (Jan. 6) attracted about 20 people, but because there was a storm that morning, it was decided to try again

BUDGET CHANGE

The planned adoption of the 2014 municipal operating and capital budget scheduled for Feb. 24 at 6:30 p.m. has been changed. Council will now consider adoption of the budget on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 5 p.m. The meeting will follow two public meetings in council chambers Tuesday and Wednesday (Feb. 11-12), both at 5 p.m. where the public and councillors will get one last chance to comment on the proposed budget. The adoption date change was made to

allow Mayor David Reid to attend a Rural Ontario Municipalities Association conference where a provincial committee struck to review a new OPP funding model that is expected to significantly increase police costs, in particular for rural municipalities, will lobby the province for changes. Reid has taken a leadership role in the debate over policing costs. “There’s a tension that’s beginning to come about,� said Wildman. “They reached out to Mayor Reid because they see him as neutral.� Deputy Mayor Dan Lynch praised Reid’s efforts. “It’s good to see our mayor is being recognized as one of the leaders,� said Lynch. “For a small town we’re on the map.�

Town opts out of paper ads for public meeting notices Town of Arnprior launches new website Sherry Haaima

Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

News – The Town of Arnprior will no longer post public planning meeting notices in the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide. Council decided Jan. 27 that notices of public meetings relating to zoning changes and amendments, which in the past had been mailed to the affected ratepayers and also appeared in large advertisements in the weekly community newspaper, will no longer be fully outlined in the paper. The town will continue to do some advertising in the newspaper. The municipality is required to advise of the changes by only one of those methods, explained town planner Robin Smith. The public meetings are held to provide an opportunity for affected residents to comment on any proposed changes. The mail-outs will continue, and a sign will be erected on each affected property. Fitting all of the required information, including key map, made for a bulky ad and sometimes illegible maps in the newspaper ads, Smith said. Working with newspaper deadlines also sometimes lengthened the process. “The other problem with publication in newspaper is we’re restricted in time frames,” explained Smith. The change will help improve the process for developers, she said. “We’re making sure we’re moving the process forward in an efficient manner,” said Smith. The signs that will be used will allow for text that can be changed. There is already

Nearby residents will continue to be notified by mail. one in use on William Street, said Smith. All the information is also available on the town’s website. The advertisements also cost the town each time, said Arnprior CAO Michael Wildman. The town is looking at starting up a bi-

weekly ‘municipal matters’ block advertisement in the Chronicle-Guide with town notes and information. Reeve Walter Stack voiced his praise for the move. “I think it’s a great idea,” he said. “And more cost effective.”

News - The Town of Arnprior has just officially launched its new website at www.arnprior.ca. Lindsay Wilson, the town’s marketing and economic development officer, gave council an outline of the new site Jan. 27. The site meets all Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) standards and has been tested on multiple platforms including a screen reader. To assist the town in improving its accessibility, there is an easy to access accessibility feedback form under the town’s accessibility tab. Feedback is welcome. The new website is designed to be user-friendly, said Wilson. “It features easy navigation, professional photography and incorporates the town’s new brand to offer a truly enjoyable and informative experience for users,” says a town news release. “The website is divided into four key categories to assist users in locating information that is relevant to them. The ‘Live’ category is targeted to residents and offers information on recreation, , the marina, parks, road work business directory, trails, information for new residents, community resources and services, as well as a community calendar. The ‘Discovery’ category is targeted to visitors and tourists, with information on where to stay, where to dine, what to do, an electronic version of the brand new Discovery Guide and more. The ‘Grow’ category is targeted to businesses and investors. It provides information on industrial/commercial properties in town, has demographic information, past studies and articles, as well as support information and resources for existing and potential local businesses. The ‘Town’ section provides information on services, including contacts, council and advisory committee agendas and minutes, garbage and recycling information, taxation and water information along with bylaws and other information people may need about the town.

OMB hearing will look at planning, hydro-geology, air quality issues Continued from front

Miller Paving’s lawyer John Ewart suggested that because of the uncertainty regarding the timing of the Ministry of Natural Resources’ granting of the aggregate licence, it would be safer to take the later date. The residents appealing the decision did not disagree. Until the matter is resolved, Miller’s won’t be able to proceed with its planned expansion to the aggregate area at the pit, but will be able to locate a temporary asphalt plant there as allowed in the previous zoning. Miller is appealing the township’s rezoning and official plan amendment because it denies the company’s request to include a permanent asphalt plant in the expansion. The community association, FACT-MB Inc. (Friends Addressing Concerns Together in McNab-Braeside), as well as two township residents, are appealing the bylaw saying the expanded extraction zone is

too large and would use neighbours’ property as a buffer zone. The township’s lawyer, Joan Bradley, gave an overview of the case, noting that Miller’s had asked to have all its 325 acres included in the extraction zone and be approved for the permanent asphalt plant. In its decision, council approved an additional 112 acres to be added, bringing the extraction zone up to 185 acres. Lawyers for the two sides met prior to the OMB prehearing to work out the order of speakers and topics at the hearing.

Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.co

News - Renfrew County has looked inward to hire a new director of public works and engineering. The successor for retiring director Dave Darch is Steven Boland, who has been the county’s manager of operations in the public works department the past 10 years. Darch was to retire a few months ago, but his contract was extended until March 31 to facilitate the selection and transition of the new director. Boland assumes his new duties April 1. Renfrew County chief administrative officer Jim Hutton, along with operations committee chairman Walter Stack of Arnprior, made the announcement at the Jan. 29 session of county council, which passed the recruitment committee’s recommendation. From 48 applicants, the committee shortlisted four candidates, before selecting Boland on Jan. 24. The recruitment process began in December following Darch’s announced retirement. The recruitment committee consisted of Warden Peter Emon,

STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND

Steve Boland has been promoted to become the County of Renfrew’s new director of public works and engineering. Darch, Hutton, Renfrew County director of human resources Bruce Beakley, and Stack. “Steve Boland brings a great deal of work experience and leadership to this position,” said Stack in a county news release. “I have found him to be a great asset to the County of Renfrew. In the six years that I have been with the operations committee I have had many opportunities to work with Steve, and I am confident that he will continue to excel, as the director of public works and engineering.”

“I think Steve is a good fit for our senior management team,” said Hutton, who has worked with Boland for 15 years. “I’m quite content and glad to make this recommendation,” said Emon. Boland has more than 30 years of municipal and engineering management experience. In a county news release, Boland said he looks forward to continuing a “productive relationship with county council and the local municipalities in my new role.”

News - The County of Renfrew has taken an important step toward obtaining 219 or more kilometres of the abandoned Canadian Pacific railway. The railway bed, whose tracks and other equipment were removed in 2012 and 2013, is still owned by Canadian Pacific. A small amount of clean-up remains to be done, but the county has made in clear it wants to become a future owner and possibly turn the railway bed into a recreational corridor. The abandoned portion of the line measures 300 kilometres. Seventy-three per cent (or 219 kilometres) is located in Renfrew County. Fifty-eight kilometers are in Lanark County, and there are 23 in PapineauCameron Township, to the north of Renfrew County. On Jan. 29, Renfrew County council approved the selection of Antec Appraisals in Hamilton to appraise the value of the Canadian Pacific corridor. The eight requests for proposal received by the county ranged from $20,000 to $390,000. Council approved the property and development committee’s recommendation to select a $69,000 bid from Antec. Several companies’ bids were not accepted due to lack of experience with railway property assessment. The committee said the proposals were evaluated according to rail corridor experience, capabilities, history, understanding of the project and cost. The selection committee consisted of Renfrew County director of development and property Paul Moreau, business development officer Craig Kelley and GIS supervisor Jason Davis. Special funding assistance of $40,000 will reduce the overall cost

to $29,000 plus HST, with Lanark County paying $5,597, Renfrew County $21,170 and Papineau-Cameron $2,230. Special funding includes $30,000 from Renfrew County Community Futures Development Corporation and $10,000 from Ontario’s Highlands tourism organization. The Highlands body is funding the work because it recognizes the benefit of a recreational corridor in the region. COUNTY PORTION

Renfrew County’s portion will come from an unallocated-funds envelope in the 2014 budget. Petawawa Mayor Bob Sweet, who chairs the county’s CP railway corridor advisory committee, says this is an important next step toward obtaining the railway bed. Sweet has been guarded in saying how the counties will pay for the property, but has provided hints that the county could provide CP with a sizable tax receipt. The county provided a $2.2-million tax receipt, but paid only $1 to purchase the former Canadian Tire building in Renfrew in 2005. The building was then turned into Renfrew County Place, whose facilities include social services, economic development groups, a daycare and a paramedic base. Sweet says the county has some undisclosed strategies for acquiring the railway property. “One of the big stumbling blocks is to sit across the table from the owner and negotiate when you don’t know what the property is worth,” said Sweet. “Best-case scenario, we will get an agreement-in-principle with CP and ourselves, the three (municipal parties) that are trying to keep the property in the public domain.” Meanwhile, Sweet says the three are just three of many supporters who want to see the property developed.

These supporters, he says, include the lower-level municipalities and other such stakeholders as snowmobile clubs, equestrian clubs, cyclists, birdwatchers, ATVers and trail alliances. The stakeholders will ultimately determine how the abandoned railway bed will be used, stresses Sweet. “My job is to get the agreement in place to acquire the property, and this is the beginning of that.” Sweet says he’s hoping an agreement-in-principal with CP will be in place within a year. Lanark County council agreed at its Jan. 22 meeting to allow municipal funds to be spent on an appraisal of the corridor. The rail line runs southeast of Arnprior through Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place, Beckwith, Montague and Smiths Falls. Lanark County CAO Kurt Greaves said keeping the corridor in the public domain “adds the potential to re-establish rail or other methods of public transportation in the future.” The rail line’s proximity to Ottawa gives it the potential to be a well-used trail and tourist draw, he added. CN LINE

Meanwhile, hopes to save the CN rail tracks up the Upper Ottawa Valley took another blow last week when the City of Ottawa received a staff recommendation that it not spend any money to help buy the rail line. Ottawa council was told that there are not enough potential benefits for the city to justify allocating taxpayers’ money to the rescue-the-rail-line efforts being led by Transport Pontiac-Renfrew. The rail line crosses West Carleton and goes into the Pontiac before returning to Ontario near Chenaux. The lines between Pembroke and Chenaux have already been torn up, but the Quebec municipalities on the route have been fighting against the removal in their area.

News – The township’s bylaw enforcement officer Jim McBain was at McNabBraeside council Jan. 21 to submit a proposed parking bylaw for the township. “McNab-Braeside is a very rural area and there’s no need for a comprehensive, city-style bylaw,” said McBain. “It’s a nutsand-bolts type of bylaw.” Council, along with various departments, including fire, are reviewing the proposed bylaw and will submit any suggestions before the final one is passed. The type of issues contained in the bylaw are the type of infractions commonly dealt with in the rural municipalities, said McBain. “It’s an entry-level bylaw with respect to the issue of parking,” he said. Parking at the Red Pine Bay boat launch will require a parking pass, which will be available at the township office and designated locations. “We’re basically treating the boat launch as a parking lot,” explained McBain. “If

Embrace the Olympic spirit

T

he Winter Olympics will slip, slide and jump onto our TV screens starting this Friday. Arnprior and area residents have a special reason to get excited this time around. One of their own, John Leslie, will be competing in the Paralympics next month. And the town is already getting ready to host former Olympic hero Clara Hughes when her Big Ride bicycle tour across Canada to promote awareness of mental health issues makes a stop here June 30-July 1. By speaking out about her bouts with depression and helping others in the process, Hughes is making us proud all over again. And Leslieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inspiring story of triumph over adversity, as he refuses to let cancer and the loss of his leg prevent him from following his athletic dreams, has already made us proud several times. Those two epitomize the Canada Olympic spirit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; talented and determined, yet unassuming and genuinely nice, truly appreciative of the support they have received from the folks back home and wanting to give back to their country and communities. With all the corruption and cynicism that threatens our enjoyment of the Olympics, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s athletes such as Hughes and Leslie that give Canadians a real reason to embrace the Olympic spirit. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rare chance to get patriotic and cheer on our athletes, even if they are half a world away in Sochi, Russia. The athletes come together to compete. They may represent a wide diversity of nations, but they are all human, and the Games should be a celebration of humanity: what our species is capable of accomplishing

when taking on incredible physical challenge. In that way, the Olympics should allow us to rise above such abstract constructions as nations and states. All people should be able to feel a sense of elation when an athlete goes further or faster than anyone before, no matter what flag they may wave. Unfortunately, the Games in Sochi will take place under the cloud of intolerance, namely the threat of terrorism and draconian laws in Russia dealing with homosexuality. Athletes and other visitors to Sochi who may be gay or openly support gay rights have received some assurance that they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be mistreated. Misguided and prejudicial opinions wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be changed overnight, but we can hope that the Russian people will learn that GLBTTQ community is no threat to anyone. The Olympic Games have long been a beacon of human diversity, such as the accomplishments of African American Jesse Owens in Berlin in 1936, winning four gold medals during a Games Hitler had hoped would be a celebration of his twisted ideology. Lovable underdogs like British ski jumper Eddie â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Eagleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Edwards and the Jamaican bobsled team at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary showed the world about courage in the face of adversity and the determination to compete despite the odds. In this light, we should all strive to ensure that the athletes and their incredible efforts are what we remember about the Olympics and Paralympics in Sochi. If we celebrate their accomplishments alongside the Olympic spirit, hopefully the world will bring a valuable, powerful message to the people of Russia between now and March 16.

Arnprior needs to attract more imaginative Tories increase tax burden shopping choices than a Wal-mart store LETTERS

To the Editor: Regarding the desire for businesses such as Wal-mart. In my opinion, Wal-mart is not the only or the best option to bring to Arnprior to increase our purchasing population. It would seem to me to be the least likely choice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; large, American, low quality items and mostly things I for one do not need. When I do need to go to Wal-mart, the 25-minute drive is not prohibitive. Now Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business development could be more imaginative and set a higher standard for quality consumer products, then Arnprior would be the destination for anyone who

wants good buys and informed sales people. My wish list of businesses would be: Princess Auto. Herb and Spice like organic and/or local take home food store, Shoe repair with Payless Shoestore, Michaels craft store, Farm Boy, Randalls Paint and Home DĂŠcor, Paper Shop, Asian Noodle Shop (or any variety of ethnic foods that are good for you, inexpensive and easy to pick up at the last minute) and a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play centre and clothing store. Basically I believe if we did what would serve those of us who live here (and our families near and far), it would help us live here rather

To the Editor: There are several things wrong with the Harper governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neverending claims that they are brilliant tax cutters. To start with, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s untrue. Their first fiscal decision after taking office in 2006 was to increase personal income taxes. Later that fall, they imposed a toxic new Conservative tax on Income Trusts which obliterated $25billion from the savings accounts of two million ordinary Canadians. More recently, Mr. Harper has increased the overall federal tax burden in each of his last four budgets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taxing everything from hospital parking fees and cosmetic wigs for cancer patients to local credit unions and job creation. Conservative claims about lower taxes for families need a scrupulous reality check.

For example, MP Cheryl Gallant says that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the average family has an extra $3,200 to spend or save.â&#x20AC;? But it all depends on what type of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about. You can construct an illustration which would fit the Conservative model â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with two parents, two children, a six-figure income and consumer spending of more than $50,000 every year (including over a thousand dollars for art lessons). But for most families â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in fact, for 70 per cent of Canadian families â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this is simply not their reality Nearly three-quarters of Canadians worry that their children will not do as well as they have done.

Why cycling is good for Renfrew County and why it’s such a great place for cycling Ish Theilheimer

613-271-7904 CAPITAL DODGE NOW INTRODUCES

Kathy Eisner Theilheimer and Ish Theilheimer on the bikefriendly south shore of the St. Lawrence River near Montmagny, Quebec in summer, 2012. es, gifts to bring home, and events. Cycling is really big right now. You’ll see a lot of bikes on TV commercials these days aimed at younger and middleage adults. That’s because Canadian public interest in cycling is at an all-time high. Global News calls cycling “the new golf.” More than a million Ontarians ride daily. Small things could really help promote safe cycling. A well-marked network of bike routes would steer riders to the best and safest roads and alert drivers to the presence of cyclists. Ongoing efforts to educate cyclists and drivers – both locals and passers-through – can make our roads safer. Hardened shoulders can encourage riders and save lives. Hardening shoulders is controversial, though, because it costs money at a time when local governments are being squeezed on other fronts. That’s why an incremental approach like the one proposed by Renfrew County’s staff makes sense. Their plan is to harden shoulders on roads being rehabilitated. It will cost less than $2 per household annually to do this, which seems a small price to pay for safety. Where real leadership is needed is the province of Ontario. Last year, for instance, the province repaved the section of highway we ride to Killaloe and Golden Lake and actually made the strip on the right side of the road narrower than it had been previously. It did nothing to encourage people to get out of their cars, get some exercise and quit burning gas. It can be quite terrifying to have a car or truck pass you with less than an arm’s length

clearance when you’re on a bike and they’re going 100 km/hour. This is one of the main reasons why more Canadians don’t ride. They’re scared out of their wits, and with some justification. Cyclists are entitled, by law, to ride on all roads except freeways. As a rider, the safest place to be is where drivers can see you, which means out on the road, but this is a not a comfortable place to be on a busy highway. The provincial government introduced a strategy to promote cycling last year. A lot of it comes across as well-meaning talk. MTO should be hardening shoulders on all roads it repaves, just as Renfrew County’s staff has proposed. Renfrew County is a great place to ride, and more cycling would be good for Renfrew County. Through my work with a theatre company that brings thousands of people to the Ottawa Valley, I see real payback potential. If the County develops a national or international repututation as a bike-friendly, can’tmiss, natural and cultural attraction, the economic benefits can be substantial. Hospitality is already the County’s biggest industry, and it can become much bigger. Making the County more bike-friendly will give this, our main sector, a big additional boost. Renfrew County is indeed a great place to cycle, but it could be a much better and safer place with a bit of attention, and that effort would pay off in many important ways. Ish Theilheimer is a writer, musician and producer of Stone Fence Theatre.

Community - It’s good to see cycling in the news in Renfrew County. The place is a natural marvel for riding, and the potential benefits of cycling for the County and its people are many. I confess: I’m a “rider,” and I have been for 50 years. With luck, I hope to get in a lot more riding. For seven months a year, it offers me a great way to stay in shape, get around, save money and enjoy the outdoors. And there are few greater places to be outdoors, on a bike, than in Renfrew County. Safety, however, is a big concern. Most riders know someone who was killed on a bike somewhere. I do. There aren’t many sports you can say that about. Not many people get killed playing hockey, football, or even skiing, for instance. Safety concerns keep a lot of people off bikes. These concerns are not insurmountable. If you’re careful, ride by the rules and make yourself very, very visible, you’re pretty safe, most of the time on a bike, which is why I plan to keep riding the roads of Renfrew County. I’d like to see them become a lot safer, though. It’s one of the best places I know to ride. My wife Kathy and I almost always take or rent bikes when we travel, and, in this way, we’ve seen parts of Quebec, Nova Scotia, P.E.I., France, England, Cuba and many places in Ontario and the U.S. When you go by bike, you see a things up close that you’d never catch in a car. You can stop when you see something amazing. It’s easy to talk to people, and they’re usually a lot more friendly than if you roar up in an air-conditioned chariot. You rarely find better riding than here. Kathy, in particular, loves being able to ride 12 km. to work at Killaloe Public School. She loves the boost it gives her health and setting a good example for students. Renfrew County offers riders amazing scenery, a growing network of paved backroads, a lot of friendly people and many great things to do. When it comes to vacationing, Kathy and I are always on the lookout for places as nice to visit with bikes as Renfrew County, and they’re hard to find. When we find them we go spend money in those places at restaurants, hotels, servic-

House Sparrows, like this female are not native sparrows but birds originating in the Old World. paid a bounty to have House Sparrows killed. House Sparrows arrived in North America about that same time, the first releases taking place in New York. They quickly spread through the northeast and House Sparrows arrived in our area in the 1920s. However, they were not welcomed with open arms. Because House Sparrows don’t migrate south for the winter, we can track their spread through Christmas Bird Count records. House Sparrows first appeared on the Pakenham Bird Count in 1927; 24 were recorded that year. In 1985 a staggering 2,011 were tallied. Since then, House Sparrow numbers have been steadily falling. After the year 2000 not once have 500 been tallied on the Count. Fewer than 100 were tallied on each of the last two counts; only 56 were recorded in 2012. This downward trend has been observed globally, and the million-dollar question is now: “Why are House Sparrows declining?”

Many causes have been suggested. They range from an increase in domestic cats (cats kill more than a billion songbirds in England each year and likely half that number in North America annually) to cell phone towers (a failure in reproduction has been linked to tower frequencies in India). A reduction in small farms with livestock has also been implicated; this phenomenon is certainly apparent in the Ottawa Valley. There is irony in that a bird once declared an undesirable is now a species of concern. However, whether or not House Sparrows disappear entirely from this continent is not the main concern. Many other bird species are also showing population declines, so perhaps something more onerous than loss habitat is involved. House Sparrows may not be true sparrows in the forest, but they could well be canaries in a coal mine. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

Lifestyle - One of the birds most familiar to people living in cities, towns, and rural settings has been the ‘sparrow’. Their chirps have arisen from city parks, backyard hedges, and open barns. These ‘sparrows’ have often usurped birdhouses erected for bluebirds or swallows. The male ‘sparrows’ are rather attractive as they sport a gray top hat and a black throat and bib, which get larger with age. In contrast, the females are rather plain; their back and other upperparts are dusky brown and their breast is beige. A pale stripe over the eye is sadly their most striking feature. However, these familiar ‘sparrows’ have no relationship with other local sparrows such as Song, Savannah or White-throated. That is because House Sparrows, also known as ‘English Sparrows’, belong to the ‘Old World Sparrows’, a group not native to North America. Two centuries ago House Sparrows were familiar to residents of Eurasia and Africa. When Europeans began to spread around the globe, homesick immigrants often brought House Sparrows with them. As a result, House Sparrows were introduced into many regions of the world. They first arrived in Australia in 1863 (the first attempt in 1862 failed because all 60 birds aboard the Suffolk perished on route). They proliferated quickly and only 20 years later the City of Melbourne

Gallant, Hillier urge government action on propane shortage News – The growing concern being expressed by rural residents over the shortage, and price increases, in propane has finally attracted the notice of politicians. Despite the downplaying of the propane suppliers of the severity of the shortage, there have been numerous stories about Eastern Ontario rural residents being left without heat during the reason cold snap. Some couldn’t get their tanks filled and others can afford the sharp rise in the price. Ontarians who rely on propane and are without fixed price contracts have been paying as much as $1.14 per litre for propane recently, which is up from the 70 cents-per-litre range in October. To add to the woes of residents not serviced by natural gas lines, the cost of furnace oil has also spiked, up to around $1.23 per litre last

week compared with $1.01 in early October Both Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant and Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier issued releases last week expressing concern about the issue. Gallant, who says she was alerted to the problem by constituents last fall, welcomed the announcement by the federal government that it will investigate, through the National Energy Board and the Competition Bureau, the recent spike in propane prices. “Rural homeowners, already hit by Ontario Hydro with huge price increases in the cost of electricity, now find the cost to heat their home with propane, is out of control,” said Gallant. “I first drew this to the attention of our government in the fall when concerned constituents began contacting my office about the price of

propane.” The rising price of propane, combined with its reduced availability, has residents of Eastern Ontario worried about their energy supply, she noted. Many provinces regulate the pricing and supply of propane, but the Ontario government does not, and has “chosen not to step in despite the concerns of many of its residents,” she added. Propane is commonly used to heat homes in rural areas that cannot be reached by natural gas lines. It is also used to fuel specially equipped vehicles and for industrial applications including the drying of corn and other crops. Gallant suggested the problem was made worse by misguided predictions from Environment Canada and the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that this winter would be warmer than normal. “It would appear the global warming predic-

tions were wrong,” said Gallant. Meanwhile, Hillier, in a letter to provincial energy minister Bob Chiarelli, accused the ministry of not understanding the “magnitude of this crisis” and its impacts on rural Ontario households. “Propane industry experts are in chaos over this shortage, and aren’t able to provide the public or elected representatives with an explanation of the cause of the shortage,” said Hillier. “How are we supposed to make reasonable and informed decisions when the industry is unable to clearly explain what the difficulty is?” Unlike gasoline, oil, natural gas and electricity, there is little to no reporting mechanism for propane production, demand, imports or exports, and as a result, the public has no way of finding out what’s really going on, said Hillier.

Minimum wage bump detracts from main issues: PC critic Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

News – The minimum wage increase detracts from more important economic issues, say PC finance critic Vic Fedeli and MPP Jack MacLaren. Together with energy critic Lisa MacLeod, the three spoke before a sparse crowd of just a half dozen supporters at a legion in Kanata Jan. 28. Two days later the Liberal government raised the minimum wage from $10.25 to $11 per hour, effective June 1. It also introduced legislation to tie future increases to the rate of inflation. “It’s all about diverting attention from the real issues,” Fedeli said. “We’ve lost 300,000 manufacturing jobs in this province. We’ve got to do something about hydro (rates escalating). Those are the real

issues.” Fedeli spoke about his party’s One Million Jobs plan, saying it will be obtainable eight years after winning government through reduced corporate taxes, energy rates and red tape. He started by pointing out Ontario’s debt has doubled to $278 billion in the 10 years since Liberals took power. Revenue has climbed to an all time high of $114 billion last year, though government spent about $125 billion. “Never before have we had that much money to spend,” said Fedeli, the MPP for Nipissing. “The deficit last year was $9.2 billion last year. It’s forecasted to grow to $11 billion this year. We have a tax-and-spend government.” According to the Bank of Canada, growth projections are way off – Ontario won’t make its revenue expectations.

That’s where Fedeli inserts a popular analogy: If a family were to bring in less, maybe because one parent lost their job, spending would be cut back. Wants and needs would be separated, with cuts to the former. “That’s the responsible thing to do.” But the Liberals said they will spend their way out. With a deficit larger than all other provinces’ put together, they will “pretend” the recession spending is still needed, he added. Rather than raise corporate taxes from 11. 5 to 12 per cent, as the Liberals have vowed, the PCs would cut it to 10 per cent. “You keep lower taxes, that’s how you create jobs.” That flies in the face of numerous studies showing that higher taxes in the 1950s and

Effort continues to boost minimum wage to $14 News – The decision by the provincial government to boost the minimum wage from $10.25 to $11 per hour on June 1 is too little, say some critics. However, the government says the 75-cent rise is fair as it reflects the rise in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) since the last minimum wage increase in 2010. The government will also introduce legislation that would tie future minimum wage increases to the CPI. That will ensure the minimum wage keeps up with the cost-of-living, and increases will be predictable for businesses and families. Under the proposed legislation, increases would be announced by April 1 and come into effect each Oct. 1. The proposed legislation acts on the recommendations of Ontario’s Minimum Wage Advisory Panel, which included business, labour, youth and anti-poverty representatives. However, several labour and anti-poverty

GIRONES LAWYERS

INJURY LAW

groups argue that the rate should climb to $14 an hour immediately. While praising the rise, a $11 minimum wage will still mean that low-wage workers have to rely on taxpayer support, not fair wages, to escape the poverty trap, said Ontario Federation of Labour president Sid Ryan “A $14 minimum wage would allow every low-wage earner to work their way out of poverty … Meanwhile, very profitable corporations are being allowed to continue to pay poverty wages. There is nothing fair about that.” “A minimum wage of $11 an hour is still a poverty-level income. Tying it to inflation only ensures it stays below the poverty line,” said Unifor national president Jerry Dias. The Canadian Federation of Students-Ontario and the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario were among the groups issuing statements in support of a $14 minimum wages. “… nurses know that $14 is a healthier hourly wage,” said the RNA’s letter to the premier.

’60s led to more job gains, and that the current slide in employment and living standards coincides with trickledown economics that started in the early 1980s. Fedeli didn’t address well known criticisms to the lower taxes argument, opting to attack Feed-in Tariff (FIT) as an unaffordable program that drives away companies like Caterpillar, Heinz, and Kellogg’s from the province. “Ontario has gone from one of the lowest cost energy producers to the highest in North America,” Fedeli said. QUESTION PERIOD

Although only a handful of supporters were on hand, at least two of those were PCs angered by leader Tim Hudak and the party’s inability to capitalize on Liberal scandals. Fedeli, MacLaren and MacLeod were asked repeatedly to cut not just corporate rates but hydro costs. The answer was to eliminate FIT in order to stop future skyrocketing increases. They were chastised for holding too few “town hall” events instead of $10-a-plate fundraisers. The response was that the governing party has

more advantages to get its message out. However, the most pointed criticism came from Robert White who said tax cuts to businesses and attacking unions won’t bring back middle class jobs. “In terms of an approach, the Liberals will slaughter us,” White said. “You don’t have a plan. You are stating it. But you don’t have a plan to bring back jobs.” Another supporter blamed the scandals caused by the federal Conservatives for the lackluster poll results at the provincial level. MacLaren rejected the idea of appealing to unions. “I don’t think we need to court unions. We have better areas,” MacLaren said. “Unions are getting smaller in numbers anyway.” MINIMUM WAGE

Expanding on the PCs assertion that a bump up in the minimum wage serves to deflect attention was Carleton University’s Ian Lee of the Sprott School of Business. He said if the intent is to solve poverty, increasing the minimum wage won’t do it because only 20 per cent of those

on minimum wage are below the poverty line. The rest are students living at home or supplementing their incomes. Lee added that raising the cost of labour means business will find ways to cut labour costs, usually through greater automation. That will increase joblessness among those looking for minimum wage work. Some employers have said they will pass along increased costs to customers, but Lee didn’t address this. Proponents of raising minimum wage say it will mean the working poor can contribute more to consumerism, thereby creating more jobs than when profits are pocketed by owners who tend to hold the money. Lee’s second criticism has to do with “using a pricing solution” to deal with inequality. He said it is better to educate those in poverty (though he doesn’t pretend there are easy answers to the contributing factors of mental illness, addiction and others.) “If you don’t get post secondary education you will be in the bottom quintile for the rest of your life,” Lee said. “The problem is the government is mucking with the price instead of going at up-skilling and re-skilling.”

Packers drop two, Valley race tightens Sean Marcellus

ARNPRIOR'S HISTORIC THEATRE R0202329940

Sports - It was a tough week for the Arnprior Packers as they dropped two one-goal games. With just five games remaining in the regular season, the Valley Division race has begun to tighten tremendously. The Packers are currently four points ahead of third-place Almonte but have a very difficult schedule ahead to finish the season as they square off against first-place Renfrew twice, followed by Perth, Stittsville and Shawville. Fortunately, the Packers had beaten Almonte 4-1 Jan. 24 in the annual Pakenham Frost Fest game.

As part of the Pakenham Frost Festival, the Junior B Arnprior Packers took on the Almonte Thunder, with Arnprior winning 4-1. The game on Jan. 24 opened with a ceremonial puck drop, in honour of local hockey mom Sharon Ryan, who recently lost a battle with cancer. At left is Delany Ziebarth, who sang the national anthem. At top, the two teams pose with a pink hockey stick, signed by each player in memory of Sharon Ryan. Arnprior’s goals came off the sticks of Patrick McGrath, with his 16th of the year, and Damian Armstrong, who scored his team-leading 20th. Erik Miksik made 32 saves for the Packers in the loss, while Stittsville goalie Patrick Kealey turned aside 35 Arnprior shots on way to leading Stittsville to the victory. The Packers were scheduled to play Renfrew last night (Wednesday) in their official ‘Fill

The Rink Night’. However, the game ended after press deadline. For a recap and box score, please visit the Packers official website or twitter feed @PriorPackersJrB. NEXT HOME GAME

This Sunday Feb. 9 – Arnprior Packers vs. Perth Blue Wings – Nick Smith Centre at 7:30 p.m.

On Sunday afternoon, the Packers traveled to Stittsville to take on the Royals and fell 3-2 for the second time in four days.

The Packers welcomed Renfrew to town Wednesday, Jan. 29, and although the Packers outshot the Timberwolves 47-30 they lost 3-2, as all five goals were scored in the first period. The Packers received goals from Colby Cochrane and Chris Marchand in the loss, while goaltender Erik Miksik made 27 saves. The story of the game was Renfrew goaltender Mitchell Knight, who stymied the Packers, making 45 saves for the Wolves.

Ryan beat out Old Watson in the B division. At left, Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Johnny C l u t e reaches the puck before Old Watson players close in. For more photos, see Page 19.

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A revived long-time Braeside tradition continued last week when eight teams and supporters converged at the RA Centre for the 2014 Braeside Cup. Highlights of the weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games, which ended Saturday, Feb. 1, included a presentation to the Arnprior and District Food Bank, a feature organizer Dan Leblanc said he hopes to continue. At the end of the day, Young Watson emerged victorious in the A final versus Croziers. Leblanc thanked all those who made the day possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to the teams for your donations to the food bank - 70 pounds of canned goods and $130,â&#x20AC;? he said. Special thanks go out to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;old guysâ&#x20AC;? of Braeside - Kent and Kyle Thomlison, Joe Proulx, Garnet Meek and Trevor Mosley, Arnprior mall manager Howie LeBrun and Erin Arthur, said Leblanc. The Town of Arnprior has been a big supporter over the years, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Glenn Arthur and crew, thanks for always volunteering your time and nets for the last 20 years. Without your help this fundraiser would not be successful,â&#x20AC;? said Leblanc. He also thanked the more than 30 sponsors who supported the event.

Right, Braeside cup organizer Dan Leblanc, left, and volunteer Howie Lebrun hand over food bank donations collected at the Braeside Cup. Kathy Tonkin, centre and Joanne Cheret accept the gift. Left, the Old Watson goalie is ready for the puck.

RESULTS

Ryan beat out Old Watson in the B division. Most valuable goalie was Laura Graham and Tyler Virgin was named top goal scorer. Casey Shipman was MVP and Brady Rampton won the most sportsmanlike trophy.

Arnprior students explore Inuit culture, lifestyle Arnprior District High School native studies students and a Grade 8 class from St. Joseph’s Catholic School had a special treat Jan. 21 when they enjoyed workshops put on by the students of Nunavut Sivuniksavut (NS). The workshops highlighted and allowed local students to try out various aspects of traditional Inuit life, including sports, language, history and culture. NS students demonstrate a traditional Inuit game, above, at the event at St. John Chrysostom ParPHOTOS BY SHERRY HAAIMA/METROLAND ish Hall. NS is a unique eight-month college program based in Ottawa. It is for Inuit youth who want to prepare for the St. Joseph’s student Liam Ready tries out an Inuit drum as educational, training, and career opportunities that are being created by the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement (NLCA) classmate Max Reitz and an NS student look on. and the new Government of Nunavut.

“We really appreciated having the students from NS visit Arnprior to share their culture and history with us. It was great to see the sense of pride and fun the students from NS had in sharing their Inuit culture,” said ADHS native studies teacher Ryan McKenna. “I hope our students understand that Aboriginal culture is very much a part of our shared Canadian culture and relevant in our country today.”

Valley skier off to Olympics Kelly Kent kkent@perfprint.ca

Sports – Get ready to cheer your hearts out, Mississippi Mills and area, because our very own Perianne Jones is headed to this year’s Winter Olympics. Jones, who was born and raised in Almonte, will not only represent Canada as part of the Canadian Olympic Cross Country Skiing team at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, but Mississippi Mills as well, as she dons the town’s logo before her races. “It’s a real honour to be able to wear my community logo on my sleeve, that’s for sure,” Jones said in an email. “It’s a constant reminder of how many people have made this possible, and have believed in me since the very beginning.” Even though she’s now preparing to compete in Sochi for her second Olympic Games, Jones says that she’s still just a small-town girl at heart. Jones, who will celebrate her 29th birthday during the Olympics, was born and raised in the heart of Almonte, in a home at the base of the falls. It was here that she spent most of her life, and where her skiing career began. “Perianne has been skiing since she was three years old,” said Jones’ mother, Judy Agnew. “We are all avid skiers as a family and we spent a lot of time doing it.” Agnew says that Jones quickly took to skiing and even began racing as early as her elementary school years. It wasn’t until she started high school and joined a cross country skiing club called Nakkertok in Gatineau, Quebec that she really took a serious interest in the sport. “Perianne was interested a lot of sports when she was growing up,” Agnew said, “but once she started focusing on skiing she really took off.”

Perianne Jones, second in the race above, is in Sochi as part of Canada’s cross-country skiing team. The Winter Olympics runs Feb. 7-26. Soon, when she was in Grade 11 at Almonte District High School, Jones received an invitation to join the junior national team in Canmore, Alberta, where the national ski club is located. “I moved to Canmore in 2003,” Jones said. “That’s when ski racing really turned into a career and a full-time job for me.” Since moving to Alberta, Jones has spent most of her time training for events like the Olympics and the World Cup. Her commitment to the sport has paid off, though, as she got to compete in her first Olympics in Vancouver in 2010. “That Olympics felt very homey,” Jones said. “It was in Canada and everything was so familiar. It was a good way to start my experience, I think.” Now, as she prepares to begin her second Olympic experience in Sochi, Russia, she says she feels both nervous and confident. “Everything in Russia is so unfamiliar,” she said in an interview from Poland, where she was staying for a World Cup race ahead of the Games.

“I feel more confident because I’ve experienced an Olympics before, but I still expect this one to be very different from Vancouver.” Jones said she also has a bit of an advantage, because she’s had the opportunity to ski the Sochi course before and knows what to expect. Still, Jones isn’t one to boast: she says all she can do is ski as well as she can and hope for the best. Her mother, Agnew, is also quiet about her daughter’s talents and achievements. “Being the mother of an Olympic athlete is not really that much different from being anyone’s mother,” she said, laughing. “Certainly right now I am very proud of Perianne, but I think all mothers are proud of their children. Everyone has a talent, my daughter’s just happens to take place on a big stage.” And even with all of her success, Agnew says that Jones still has strong ties to her hometown and that she visits whenever she can. “Canmore (Alberta) may be where I live right now,” Jones said, “but Almonte will always be my home.”

At last week’s council meeting, Arnprior deputy mayor Dan Lynch offered words of encouragement on behalf of the town to Arnprior native John Leslie, who will compete in the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi. The 21-year-old will hit the slopes in para snowboard cross competition in the first year the sport is being included in the Paralympics. The ADHS graduate has seen all kinds of success lately, winning three world cup competition bronze medals and appearing in Petro Canada commercials being seen on national television. Above, Leslie, right, accepts his bronze medal at a world cup event in Colorado. At right, he proudly flies his hometown colours. The flag was a gift from the town.

Sauerkraut was a specialty of Father’s Lifestyle - As far as Father was concerned, he was the only one who knew how to properly cook sauerkraut. He said (getting a dig in at Mother about her heritage, which was far removed from his German ancestry) you had to have good German blood running in your veins to turn out edible sauerkraut.

I had no idea what blood had to do with it, but I had to admit I liked Father’s sauerkraut better than Mother’s. It all came from the same barrel, but whatever Father did to it, we all ate it with great gusto. That is, all except my cousin Ronny who visited regularly from Montreal. He hated sauerkraut regardless who cooked it, and he took to hiding it all through the house, even prying off a bedroom baseboard one time to stash it away. But for the rest of us, when Father worked his magic at the Findlay Oval, there wasn’t a scrap left over for another meal! After the barrel of shredded cabbage had been allowed to sit in the hot kitchen until it was well fermented, the barrel was rolled out to the summer kitchen where the innards formed into a solid mass of ice. For reasons which always escaped me, I was the one who had to go out with the granite basin and an ice pick and hack away until I had enough for a meal. When Father was doing the cooking, I stacked the basin high, knowing full well it would take a heap to fill the big iron fry pan he would be using. It was bitterly cold in the summer kitchen, so I dressed for the elements, wearing mitts

to hold the chisel or ice pick to chip the frozen sauerkraut, bringing it in to Father just before he was ready to pop it into the fry pan. First he would have fried (in bacon fat, of course) a heaping mound of onions, well laced with black pepper. I would stand well away from the stove as Father, with his bare hands, would scoop up the sauerkraut, slap it into the sizzling pan, as I waited for the whole thing to explode into flames. Of course, it never did, but the hissing was enough to give me concern. All the time, he would be plugging more wood into the Findlay Oval to keep the stove roaring hot. Once the frozen sauerkraut melted, he would stir the pan with the big wooden spoon, mixing in the fried onions. Father never left the stove, stirring all the time, until the liquid in the pan was gone. Then he would scoop up heaping tablespoons of butter and plop that on top of the sauer-

kraut. It too would have to be worked in, until all that was left were the fried onions and sauerkraut, which by then had turned a golden brown. He would shift the big iron fry pan to the back of the stove, on top of the reservoir, and say, ‘alright, bring your plates’. And we’d line up at the stove while father dished out his special dish. There would be more butter on the table, right beside the spoon holder, and, of course, we would scoop up a goodly portion and plop it on top of the sauerkraut, and watch it melt into Father’s wonderful main dinner course. Of course, there would also have to be meat for this meal. No supper was ever complete without meat. Often it would be salt pork simmering on the back of the stove in another big fry pan, or Mother would have a cookie sheet of homemade sausages baking in the oven with sliced apples around them. Father said the apples spoiled the taste of a good sausage. But Mother said if he was going to make German sauerkraut, then she would serve apples with the sausages, since that was a French custom she learned from her own mother. And so the two nationalities would come together at the

Findlay Oval. Even though Mother often tried to duplicate Father’s way of frying the sauerkraut, it never quite tasted the same. Before Mother moved to the backwoods of Renfrew County to marry a farmer of German heritage, she knew little of the foods Father was used to. It didn’t take her long to learn how to stuff ground pork into well-washed skins, get roasts ready for the smoke house, do down a barrel of dill pickles with big cloves of garlic, and help get the cabbage ready for the sauerkraut barrel. It took her much longer to get used to making headcheese, and blood pudding. I would be as far away from the kitchen as I could get while both were being made, because watching the pork head, and the pan of blood being prepared, turned my stomach inside out. I drew the line over both, and often would settle for a hardboiled egg instead, while the rest of the family ate up both with gusto. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

Seniors driver’s licence renewal process to be changed News – Ontario is changing its driver’s licence renewal program with the goal of making it easier for seniors who are fit to drive renew their licences. Starting on April 21, drivers aged 80 and over will no longer have to complete a written knowledge test. Instead, they will participate in a shorter, simpler renewal program that includes a vision test; a driver record review; an improved, in-class group education session; and two short, in-class screening exercises.

The new renewal session will take about 90 minutes, less than half the time of the current program. Ontario drivers age 80 and over must renew their licences every two years. Ontario is the only province in Canada with a mandatory education component for senior driver’s licence renewal. In 2012, 117,237 drivers age 80 and older attended a group education session. The current cost of renewal for seniors will remain $32. There is no additional cost for a road test. “Driving plays an important role in helping seniors maintain their independence,” said Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP) spokeswoman Susan Eng. “These changes strike the right balance in keeping everyone safe on the road by using evidencebased methods to test the ability to Sale Ends Feb. 11 drive safely,” she added.

The new screening exercises are simple, non-computerized tasks that help identify drivers who may need further assessment, such as a road test or medical review. Samples of both exercises are available online. Enhancements to the senior driver’s licence renewal program are supported by the latest scientific research and are part of the Ontario government’s plan to make it easier for people to access important government services, when and where they need them

Tales from Island View Florence Jeffrey has enjoyed a fulfilling life Editor’s note: The following is a story submitted by Sharon Gray of Island View Retirement Suites of Arnprior on the life of one of its best well-known residents, Florence Jeffrey. The information was provided by her daughter, Jill Jeffrey. Lifestyle - Florence Lucy Brown was born in Ottawa Sept 19, 1919. She was one of 12 children born to Alice and William Brown. Florence grew up in Westboro, and at 15 left high school to look after her mother. When she was 16, Florence began working as an inspector at Modern Containers. At 20 she married Lyle Jeffery, a man she had met when she was 15. Before the birth of their second child, Lyle enlisted in the Navy. Serving in the North Atlantic, he was gone two years. When Lyle returned from the war, he created a line of suitcases called JeffFlite out of the basement of their Ottawa home. Recognizing a promising and growing business for Arnprior, Mayor Bob Simpson invited Lyle to build

a luggage plant. Jeffrey Luggage Ltd. was built on McNab Street, and the business grew to employ 23 people. Over the span of 20 years, Florence and Lyle gave birth to five boys and one girl. Their second son, Bruce, was killed tragically at age 4. Following a family trip to the Calgary Stampede, Florence and Lyle decided to create a Christian ranch camp for children. In 1957 they bought 800 acres on Loney Lake, and opened the ranch in 1958. At its peak, Frontier Ranch owned over 100 quarter horses, hosted 550 campers and 35-plus staff over the course of each summer. The camp stayed open for 26 years. In 1973 Florence became Arnprior’s first chairperson of the Christian Women’s Club. A total of 250 ladies showed up for the first meeting, and over the next two decades Florence took on various roles including hosting home bible studies and speaking to other clubs. She and Lyle were also ‘lifetime members’ of The Gideons. Florence read voraciously, took art classes and designed creative proj-

ects. She loved birds and wrote poems and even a children’s story. They travelled extensively. Florence had always longed for a more formal education and finally, in her 80s, she lived her dream and took a Masters level summer writing course at Regent College in Vancouver. In 2003 Florence and her husband Lyle moved into Island View. Lyle passed away later that first year. Central to Florence’s life has been a solid faith in God. It has inspired her purpose, decisions, relationships, and gives her the strength to receive blessing and loss with grace. Following a fall that has left her using a wheelchair, and having diminished vision, Florence enjoys others reading to her, especially the bible, and world news. She also still enjoys shopping – her favorite ‘indoor sport’. Florence has many friends and visitors and over the last 10 years at Island View Suites. JILL JEFFREY/SUBMITTED “Many residents have seen each other through some major life Florence Jeffrey, a resident of Island View Retirement Suites, is wellevents,” recalls Florence. “It’s like a known in Arnprior for the family business, Jeffrey Luggage Ltd., and the Frontier Ranch Christian camp. family.”

Researching First World War records topic of Archives AGM Irene Robillard Arnprior and McNab-Braeside Archives

Lifestyle – Arnprior and McNabBraeside Archives invites everyone to kick off Heritage Week in Ontario by attending their annual meeting on Saturday, Feb. 15. The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. in the Arnprior Public Library. As 2014 is the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, the guest speaker is Glenn Wright, who will share his vast knowledge of researching Canadian records of that war. Wright was employed as an archivist and historian with the federal government for more than 30 years at Library and Archives Canada, National Defence and the RCMP. He has lectured and published extensively on aspects of family history and genealogy, especially on the uses of archival records. He is the author of Canadians at War, 1914-1919: A Research Guide to World War One Service Records (2010). He is also the current president of SUBMITTED

the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa. Afterwards, there will be light refreshments and an open house at the Archives to view its holdings. Archivist Laurie Dougherty has been busily working over the last year to process the backlog of collections and they are almost complete. PLAYTEX DISPLAY

Playtex is one of these recently completed collections and will be on display at the open house. The Playtex plant was constructed in 1953 and became a major employer in Arnprior with around 400 employees by 1967. At first they manufactured latex products such as girdles, gloves and infant’s wear. Later, they made various fabric undergarments and swim caps. The Arnprior plant closed in 2006 following several years of corporate changes. Those employed by this company would remember the many social activities that were a large part of their work life. They would remember the company newsletter called ‘the Supporter’ that started in 1975. Come to see the Playtex display of photos of social events, awards, office staff and floor production. The Archives annual meeting is open to all and admission is free.

Arnprior & District Memorial Hospital The Grove Nursing Home Primary Health Care Centre Assisted Living Services Adult Day Program

Fire Safety at Arnprior Regional Health Arnprior Regional Health has patient, resident and client safety as a key priority for the organization. Being able to respond to emergency events such as contamination spills, power outages, fires and bomb threats are just some of the plans we develop, test, and refine on a routine basis. Recently with new onetime funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health we retained the services of an expert in Emergency Preparedness to update our fire safety plan at both the hospital and Grove. Our revised fire safety plan was developed with the assistance of ARH employees and in collaboration with the Town of Arnprior Fire department. While it is important to have a plan which reflects todays best practices for responding to emergency situations, any plan must be understood by those that might have to implement it. At ARH we ensure our staff knows the elements of the plan through a number of avenues including: overview during new staff orientation, routine testing of emergency codes, monthly fire drills (testing at different times of the day), total evacuation simulation exercises and inclusion in our annual skills day training. Another key element of our emergency preparedness is our comprehensive preventative maintenance program of equipment used in emergency situations. Using a combination of trained ARH maintenance staff and contracted service technicians, we can ensure our emergency equipment such as alarms; extinguishers, etc. are functional and operating in good working order.

Staff members, under the supervision of firefighter Cory Nicholas, are trained regularly on disaster prevention including using fire extinguishers.

Emergencies can happen anywhere in our communities, not just at ARH. There are many local planning initiatives for emergency preparedness. ARH is proud to be an active member of the Town of Arnprior Emergency Preparedness Committee. Emergency preparedness has been and will always be a key priority for our organization.

Seeking Board Members for Partners in Caring In this community almost all of us or our friends and family use the services of Arnprior Regional Health. 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 arm 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.

Plans are under way for the 2nd Annual Knight in the Maritimes. If you like steak or lobster, save the date! Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, February 6, 2014 31

New math solved Thanks to a $3,000 grant from the Arnprior Northern Credit Union, students at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic School will have new software that improves math skills. Math scores across the province are slipping. Some blame â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;new mathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that focuses less on rote learning. The software has users playing games to improve various skills. On hand for the announcement are the classes of Nancy Brisson and Cathy Finner, along with the Credit Unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ron Carty, back left, Wayne Lavallee, Mark MacKenzie and Julie Brown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a complement to what we do in the classroom, for sure,â&#x20AC;? said principal Mary-Lise Rowat.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Renfrew County Catholic school board is expanding its digital learning program with the introduction of a special assignment teacher (SPAT) for information and learning technologies. Julia Graydon, who has been teaching Kindergarten at St. Francis of Assisi in Petawawa, became the SPAT for information and learning technologies on Feb. 3. Over the past year, Graydon has been working on a project with colleagues under the Teacher Learning and Leadership Program, an initiative funded by the Ministry of Education. Her team has introduced iPads, flat-screen televisions and other high-tech learning tools into the classroom to assist in the delivery of the curriculum. The project has provided a way to learn more about how students think and learn, and how to effectively document student learning. Graydon will be using her experience and training through that program to assist in the development and implementation of a board-wide information technology plan. She will report to Mark Searson, the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superintendent of education services with the Learning Technologies portfolio.

Under the G, a GEHitachi employees donation for CPAN When the $500 was presented to CPAN co-ordinator Lyn Smith last week, the GE-Hitachi Employee Recreation Committee said in a statement that it is “proud to contribute to the Child Poverty Action Network success.” “I was thrilled when Gord (Hill) got hold of me to tell me about their decision,” said Smith. “I was so pleased they recognize the hard work CPAN does around the county.” Because the organization is based in Pembroke, it sometimes doesn’t get included in the discussion about where donations in the south end of the county should be allocated, she noted. However, CPAN provides many snowsuits and backpacks full of supplies for students in Arnprior and area, she said. Smith attended the Arnprior plant

Community – Employees at the GE-Hitachi plant in Arnprior have provided a $500 boost to the Renfrew County Child Poverty Action Network. The Employee Recreation Association raised money by holding monthly bingos, with 50 per cent of the proceeds put aside for charity. The employees also organized teams, with each member donating money. The funds were used to create themed gift baskets that were auctioned off internally at the plant, with all proceeds going to local charities. The association selected various local charities and initiatives but put the Child Poverty Action Network (CPAN) at the top of the list “because of the number of programs it supports and the great work they do in the community.”

Local counsellor Darlene Denis-Friske is taking on new challenges. velopment expert Dr. Gordon Neufeld to Ottawa in early April to provide a presentation for parents and another specifically for professionals on understanding and restoring emotional health in children and youth. Denis-Friske will also be speaking about emotional health during a free presentation in the spring at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School in Renfrew, and will be doing professional development work with the paediatricians of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern On-

She will also be flying to Vancouver in early spring where she has been invited to provide workshops to parents and professionals as part of the Dr. Neufeld annual parent conference. Denis-Friske has also been invited to spend a week while in Vancouver mentoring professionals from the Squamish nation who support children and families involved in foster care. It’s definitely an exciting year of career shifts and changes, and she thanks all families and clients, both past and present, with whom she has had the privilege to work.

Everyone welcome at Legion’s regular Friday jam sessions JANET TOBIO Arnprior Legion

Community – In October 2011, Arnprior Legion member Ryan O’Neil approached the executive for authorization to hold an open Jam Session with local musicians on Friday evenings at the Legion. Every Friday night since then you can count on music, fun and laughter as regular participants and often drop-ins join together to entertain the many members and guests who come to listen, sing along, dance and have a great time. Guitars, violin, drums and sometimes a harmonica, banjo or ukulele, and, of course, the singing of almost everyone, can be heard from 7:30 p.m. to whenever. There are six musicians who are always here and several others who are regulars, attending often. There’s a very talented gentleman, John Wolf, who comes out from Ottawa at least once a month. All are amateurs and many entertain at seniors’ homes, residents and clubs. Just a few of the regular drop-in performers include Scott Carson, Andrew Tait, Ann Drummond, Miles Waslund, Penny Taylor, Don and Lea Lasalle, Dan Nicholas and Bobbie-Jo Smith. Almost everyone is from Ren-

Youngest ski racers excel in their first races Anne Lefebvre Calabogie Ski Racing Club

Sports - Calabogie Ski Racing Club’s smallest competitors tackled their first races Jan. 25 and 26. The U10s travelled to Camp Fortune for their initial race, a slalom. The boys ripped up the course, racing against 39 others. Wyatt Campbell-Brunke of Renfrew cruised to a first-place finish. Noah Matthews of Calabogie was close behind and just off the podium in sixth. Thys Blok of White Lake pulled off some nice turns to finish 13th, while rookie Connor Guttin of Mountain sped into 24th position. Riley Cotter of Ottawa and Nolan Guttin of Mountain both skied strongly but were disqualified. Meanwhile, the girls (with 34 others in their division) tucked the first race under their belts with some fine finishes. Louise Stonham of Arnprior edged into the top 10, in 10th place. Nicole Duff of Pembroke completed the course with a personal best of 15th. Tori Cotter of Ottawa debuted with a 25th-place finish. The trio were sorely missing fellow racer Carly Alexander of Carp who is out with a season-ending leg injury. Camp Fortune was also the site of the U12 slalom race Saturday. The girls compete this year in a field of 51 racers. Annabel Wight of Kanata achieved a personal best when she carved into 17th place. Tess Schreider of Kingston was hot on her heels in 23rd.

Thys Blok of White Lake in action in his slalom race. Kasey Keyes of Nepean performed admirably in her very first ski race but was disqualified on her second run.

The U12 boys compete against 61 racers. Sam Alexander of Carp smoothly pulled off a victory, topping the field by four seconds.

Jeremy Van Grunsven of Odessa and Luke Hansen of Renfrew, in his first appearance, were 28th and 29th. James Gaffney of Deep River finished 32nd, Ryan Geddie of Kanata was 42nd and Aidan Maclean (also a rookie) of Manotick was 49th. Wesley Matthews of Calabogie crashed on his first run but pulled it together and tackled the next run with a third-place time. Carson Lefebvre of Calabogie was sitting in 15th following his first run, but was DQed on the second. Evan Sharma (Kingston) also skied strongly but did not finish his second run. On Sunday, the U12s attacked the GS course at Mont Cascades with enthusiasm. Tess sped to 31st, Annabel landed in 39th, and Kasey skied well but missed a gate and was DQed. Sam hunted for another podium finish and was rewarded with a third-place medal. Jeremy was just outside the top 10, carving into 11th, and Luke Hansen came 15th. Carson rounded out the top 20 with a 20thplace finish. Evan achieved 27th, James 42nd and Ryan 48th. Wesley started swiftly, but his speed got the best of him; however, he managed to finish his second run even after pulling off an accidental 360! Next up for the racing club’s active athletes is a U14 slalom this Saturday, Feb. 1, followed by the U16 Speed Camp at Calabogie Peaks Feb. 5-9. The racers will also be glued to their TVs when the Olympics begin, ready to cheer on Canada’s alpine contingent.

Olympic news - 2,000 stray dogs will be put to death in Sochi Lifestyle - What a world we live in! Just because there are many a stray dog roaming the streets of Russia, officials in Sochi have decided to rid the city of strays not just by humane means but by traps and poison. Reports have surfaced where dogs have been killed by shovels, stabbing them with knives or kicking and beating them to death. All for an Olympic event! Some of these animals were once peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pets. Dogs or cats that once lived in a home, then for some reason were released into the city. Spaying and neutering in Russia is very expensive. Most pet owners just cannot afford the procedure. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for whatever reason understand how a beautiful being like an animal minding its own business is a threat to an Olympic event. Worry about terrorism not those that cannot defend themselves. If you took the time to peruse the pictures taken by news reporters in Sochi, you would realize that the strays look well fed and harmless. According to the government, although

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP 800 strays were adopted out, approximately 2,000 will be put to death to keep the tourists and Olympic guests safe. Is the stray problem a problem or just a blemish on the faces of the Sochi Olympics? It is incomprehensible that a people, a country, be so barbaric. The latest news is a company has been hired to continue â&#x20AC;&#x153;cleaning the city.â&#x20AC;? Every night between 1 and 6 a.m., traps are set, poison put out and animals are killed. Animal rights groups have demanded a shelter be built. The government first said no,

but it now seems to be considering allowing a private company to run a shelter. Not surprisingly, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same company hired to kill the dogs during the night. Every year I read atrocities committed to animals just like the innocent killing of dogs in New Orleans during the 2009 devastation of hurricane Katrina and every year I believe that it will get better, only to witness yet another horrible event. When are our governments going to realize that these creatures have a right to exist? Dogs help the blind see and the deaf hear. Therapy dogs help those in the military by giving them the emotional support required after a tour of duty. Dogs have even pulled out survivors during 9/11. Dogs and cats have a place in society and should be protected by enacting new laws. Ian owns ad operates Wags & Whiskers Dog and Cat Grooming and Puppy Kindergarten at 118 John St. North, Arnprior.

The Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shopping Extravaganza Feb. 1 at the RCAF Wing in Renfrew featured more than 70 vendors and supported three different animal charities: PEER (Partners for Essential Equine Rescue), VAR (Valley Animal Rescue) and LAWS (Lanark Animal Welfare Society). Organizer Veronda Brydges said she is pleased with participation and plans for a Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day sale on April 19. Sale organizer Veronda Brydges, right, joins Valley Animal Rescue volunteer Kelly Vandeligt and Lily, a 12-year-old special needs Chihuahua.

Arnprior bridge club helps LAWS News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) is appreciative of any support its gets these days, so it was delighted to receive a $250 donation from the Arnprior Duplicate Bridge Club recently. The money was raised at a charity event held by bridge club late last year and presented to LAWS by member Iris Winston. In a statement LAWS thanked the club and others groups and individuals for their â&#x20AC;&#x153;generous donations.â&#x20AC;? LAWS supporters have been lobbying municipal councillors in Lanark County this month to continue and increase support for the no-kill shelter between Perth and Smiths Falls instead of funding a new pound proposed by Montague Township.

The main concern appears to be that a municipal pound would result in more lost or abandoned pets being euthanized instead of adopted. Carleton Place has shied away from backing the pound, as has Smith Falls. However, Mississippi Mills and Perth councils have agreed in principle with the Montague plan. However, the pound would not be built until later this year if enough municipal support is forthcoming. In the meantime, Mississippi Mills has approved a one-year extension with LAWS to provide pound services for its area in 2014. The Arnprior and District Humane Society also operates a no-kill shelter.

Near miss for child prompts OPP Beware new phone to issue school bus safety appeal scams, public urged News – The local OPP are urging motorists to pay attention and stop for school buses after at least two children were nearly struck last week. On Wednesday, Jan. 29 at about 2:30 p.m., a school bus was stopped on Highway 60 near Douglas, report police. Two children had exited the school bus, which had its lights activated and stop sign extended, and were met by a parent. The three began to cross the highway when a westbound vehicle

drove by the bus and almost struck one of the children. Police say it is the second time in the last week children at the stop have almost been struck by a motorist ignoring the flashing lights on the stopped school bus. “The public is reminded that every driver on a highway while meeting or following a stopped school bus that has its overhead red signal-lights flashing shall stop before reaching the bus and shall not proceed until the bus moves or the overhead red

signal-lights have stopped flashing. (Section 175(11) of the Highway Traffic Act),” emphasis police. CHARGES

The owner of a motor vehicle can be charged for the offence, regardless of whether or not they were driving at the time. The OPP is concerned there will be a tragedy occur prior to drivers getting the message. “Stop for the school bus when signals are activated,” they urge.

38 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, February 6, 2014

News – Police and telephone companies are warning the public to be on guard against a new outbreak in the province of a common phone scams. The OPP is once more warning the public to protect their personal and financial information against unsolicited requests for payment. Area OPP officers have received a numerous complaints about different phone and computer scams throughout January and the rate appeared to be increasing in the last week of the month. The two ongoing scams of a relative arrested or stranded abroad needing money forwarded and computer access being blocked apparently by law enforcement agencies (usually the Royal Canadian Mounted Police or OPP) until a ‘fine’ is paid have been joined by a new phone scam and another method of gaining remote access to a personal computer. The phone scam involves the caller saying they are from Ontario Hydro and that the recipient is eligible for a refund (usually $600). A time will be arranged for someone to come and check the meter and then the victim is asked to provide a lot of information about their home and banking. The computer remote access to banking is committed by means of a bogus ‘pop up’ virus alert stating the computer is unprotected and to provide financial information to pay for the ‘security system’. Hydro One staff do not identify themselves as Ontario Hydro and would not deal with any rebate by calling the customer and seeking financial information, note OPP. Established computer protection software can be purchased from reputable stores, so avoid any ‘pop-ups’

soliciting funds, they advise. “The public is reminded not to provide any personal or financial information to any unsolicited source, either phone or via computer or messaging.” In that vein, there has been a significant increase recently in the frequency of calls from fraud artists trying to trick customers out of personal information by posing as representatives of Telus or other well-known companies offering free trips or other prizes. The fraudsters ‘spoof’ their caller IDs, using specialized internet services to create false phone numbers to make it appear they are calling from a local number. TELUS believes they are, in fact, calling from offshore. People who provide personal information to fraudsters could suffer identity theft or other fraud. Personal information includes names, addresses, birthdates, account numbers, passwords, credit card numbers, etc. TELUS is warning customers to be aware of these frauds, and not give out personal information. “Simply hang up when scammers call.” If you are unsure about the legitimacy of an email or phone call and believe you may have given personal information to a scam artist and need assistance securing a TELUS account, call TELUS Fraud Management at 1-877-567-2062. For additional information about email and phone fraud, visit www. telus.com/scams or the RCMP at www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/scams-fraudes/ index-eng.htm. To lodge a complaint or request more information, call the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre toll-free at 1-888495-8501 or the Competition Bureau toll-free at 1-800-348-5358.

Home theatre deal ‘too good to be true’ News - The OPP’s East Region Crime Unit is warning residents there has been an increase in fraud in connection with highly discounted home theatre audio and visual equipment. In a news release Monday, the OPP reports that suspects tell customers there has been a mix-up for one of the shipments of home theatre equipment and that they are willing to offer the customer a remarkable deal. They may provide a fake invoice. The scammers tell

customers that they are receiving an extremely high quality product for far less than the actual price. In some cases the packaging is printed with fake Manufacturers Suggested Retail Pricing stickers and an impressive list of specifications to help draw potential customers into believing they are getting an excellent deal. In most cases the product is generally far inferior in quality than the sellers lead customers to believe. The products are usually manufactured

overseas with no real branding or product support. Additionally, replacement parts are impossible to come by, as most of the companies are not legitimate. EXERCISE CAUTION

‘Shoppers need to exercise caution when being offered ‘a deal that is too good to be true’,” warn OPP. They urge people to report suspicious activity to their nearest police agency immediately or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

In loving memory of our dear father, grandfather and great grandfather who passed away 2 years ago on February 12, 2012. God looked upon his garden and found an empty space, Then He looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful for He only takes the best. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, He closed your weary eyes and whispered “peace be thine”. It broke our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you to God’s garden, your new home. God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts, Nancy, Norm, Jeff, Judith, Zachary, Emily, Angie, Amy, and Randy

In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same, It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. Father, in thy gracious keeping, Leave me now our loved one sleeping.

Six years since Doug Dixon’s passing still hailed as President Plumbers’ Local 71 family ties were also his high priority he was loved for his direct devotion to each and everyone accepting what was happening Forever loved and missed, like the setting of the sun now Peter’s shaking his firm Lynn, Donna, Rick, Jim hand lately (Nov. 18, 2013 and families passing) Doug beheld his Navy anchorage to step-son Peter always – wife Norma’s gifted much loved son. Norma Dixon, daughter Suzanne and all family members.

To us you were so special, What more is there to say, We will always love and miss you, And wish you were here today.

In loving memory of a Dear Mother and Grandmother, Who passed away February 3rd. 1990. No one heard the footsteps, of angels drawing near, Who took from the earth to heaven, The one we love so dear. She has not really left us, Nor has she traveled far, Just entered God’s beautiful garden, And left the gate ajar.

Two years have flown by, Since you were called away, You have a beautiful granddaughter now, She would steal your heart away. This month comes with sad regret, It brings a day we’ll never forget, No one knows the grief we bear, When our family meets and you’re not there. Missing you is a heartache, That never goes away, Our lives have gone on without you, And nothing is the same. Dad, when you said you wouldn’t be around, We hated to believe it could be true, How could we allow ourselves to even imagine, Saying goodbye to you. Although it was hard for us to see and hear, How you did not want to suffer anymore, We felt relief as we watched you pass, We are so proud of you!

Food and fun at Frost Fest On the first Saturday of Pakenham’s Frost Festival, people flocked to the Civitan’s pancake breakfast to enjoy their meal and socialize. Still enjoying the fame from the previous night’s crowning, Little Miss Pakenham 2014, Melody Ranger, 5, proudly wears her sash as she gets her breakfast. The annual Frost Fest also featured a variety of other events spread over two weeks, from a snowmobile show and sledding party to euchre and a church service.
