A hundred years on a handshake

M. Sullivan and Son Ltd. celebrates anniversary with book launch Sherry Haaima

sherry.haaima@metroland.com

It’s time to spring ahead. Turn your clocks ahead one hour March 9.

SPORTS

It’s the way the Sullivans have always done business and it’s served the family and the 100-year-old construction company very well. A Hundred Years on a Handshake, the lively history of M. Sullivan and Son Ltd. from 1914-2014, was launched at an anniversary event Feb. 28 in Arnprior. The celebration was held at Arnprior’s historic O’Brien Theatre, the second construction project the wellknown and liked Sullivans

completed in Arnprior. The book launch coincides with the company’s 100th anniversary and involved family, friends and supporters, an appearance by friend and MPP John Yakabuski and the book’s author Brian Hanington, who signed copies of the project, which was three years in the making. A special guest of the event was Gilbert (Gib) Tourangeau, who started working for the Sullivans in 1943 and is still employed today.

News – At about 6 p.m. this Saturday, March 8, a test of the Arnprior emergency siren will be conducted. The emergency siren is tested in the spring and fall of every year, around the time clocks are changed. Daylight savings will begin on Sunday, March 9, as clocks are moved ahead one hour from 2 a.m. standard time to 3 a.m. daylight savings time. The phrase “spring forward, fall back� is a helpful reminder of these time changes. The Arnprior Fire Department makes use of the siren test to serve as a reminder for all town residents as well as landlords and tenants of rental buildings

Towns break rank as county opposes OPP funding model Steve.newman@metroland.com

that’s bothering everyone around here is the shift of money (costs), and that’s still on the table, so let’s talk about it, and how much gets uploaded and how much we pay ourselves.â€? Murphy says Bonnechere Valley is already among the municipalities who are paying higher than average for OPP service, at $700,000. “I’m not sure I want to see this (new model) abolished, but I want to see it a little more fair ‌ and not throwing out this entire (new) billing model, but perhaps coming up with something that makes more sense.â€? The letter says the OPP policing model, with regards to municipal responsibility and financial obligations, “has been broken since the late 1990s when it was arbitrarily retooled without regards for municipal input and research, or frankly much thought beyond passing the costs on with an accompanying blaze of self-congratulating messaging.â€? The letter asks the premier to delay implementation of the new OPP payment model and, instead, install a Rural, Small Communities Provincial-Municipal-fiscal and Service Delivery Review panel (under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance)

to review service delivery levels in rural and smalltown Ontario. This review, suggests Emon, would also review the ability of abilities to pay for OPP service. Under the proposed new model, the town of Renfrew’s annual policing costs would likely drop, according to a recent analy-

sis by Renfrew treasurer Keray O’Reilly. Arnprior has come to the same conclusion. Among supporters of the resolution was Mary Campbell of McNab-Braeside, whose township will also see a major boost in policing costs under the new model.

News - Opponents to the new funding model for Ontario Provincial Police service in municipalities certainly includes Renfrew County council. With 15 of 17 county councillors present at the Feb. 27 meeting, 12 councillors have voted in favour of supporting a resolutions calling for abolishment of the newly recommended OPP billing model for 2015 and beyond. However, with the towns likely to benefit from the changes, the representatives from Arnprior and Renfrew voted against the motions. Two other resolutions called for sending letters to Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Association of Municipalities of Ontario president Russ Powers in which the county refers to the proposed billing process as an unfair and non-transparent transfer of costs to municipalities. The first of the three resolutions was in support of a similar resolution recently passed by Greater Madawaska council, whose mayor is Peter Emon, also the county warden. The resolution notes that adoption of the new model being recommended would see the Greater Mada-

waskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual police costs skyrocket 192 per cent, from $312,094 to $911,430. The same resolution calls for the province to â&#x20AC;&#x153;abolish the proposed new OPP funding model in favour of a model that is equitable to all small, rural municipalities.â&#x20AC;? Only three county councillors voted against the main resolution â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jennifer Murphy of Bonnechere Valley, Reeve Audrey Green of Renfrew and Reeve Walter Stack of Arnprior. Stack noted his municipality has been negotiating since 2005 for lower OPP costs in Arnprior. In the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter to Wynne, Emon expresses the disappointment of Renfrew County communities â&#x20AC;&#x153;with the handling of the OPP billing process and the unfair and nontransparent transfer of costs to municipalities â&#x20AC;Ś While the County of Renfrew does not provide police services, we do represent the interests of our 17 member municipalities when advocating for change.â&#x20AC;? Stack explained why he opposed the main resolution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting somewhere, so just abolishing everything that has been done up to now isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the answer,â&#x20AC;? said Stack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Arnprior Fire Department has a new response protocol that will help protect firefighters, increase efficiency and enhance professionalism. Chief John Okum told town council Feb. 24 that the department will adopt the new process following a successful pilot program that began in September. The change involves the way members of the volunteer department respond to calls. Previously, firefighters would receive a page to respond to the fire scene and would do so in their personal vehicles. The new protocol calls for firefighters to respond to the fire station to don gear and join colleagues in being dispatched aboard one of the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are then ready to deploy and arrive on scene completely geared and ready,â&#x20AC;? said Okum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We now have a more co-ordinated response.â&#x20AC;? The trial indicated the new process does not negatively impact response times, but the department will continue to monitor that issue.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re implementing this as a permanent response and will continue to observe the times and if there are issues we will certainly address them,â&#x20AC;? Okum said. Concerns with the old method included firefighter injuries, task completion without wearing personal protective gear, apparatus and equipment failing, emergency scene congestion, and the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image and sense of professionalism. To illustrate his case, Chief Okumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation included a photograph from a recent fire where firefighters were operating a hose outside a residence in their civilian clothes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this case, firefighters are not properly protected or identified,â&#x20AC;? said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This hinders operations and everyone is now at risk, including those who need to be rescued.â&#x20AC;? Another was a photograph of the vehicle previously used to carry the firefightersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; protective clothing to the call scene and several members preparing to address an issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In this case, firefighters had to assemble, take off civilian jackets and boots in the middle of a winter day in order to put on protective gear,â&#x20AC;? he said. The new method allows for firefighters to

and 37 per cent in McNab-Braeside. While 37 per cent work in Arnprior, 63 per cent of firefighters are employed out of town. Several councillors spoke in favour of the new response method. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I totally agree with the change,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Lyle Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enhancing health and safety of the firefighters is welcome.â&#x20AC;?

take the nature of the call into account and transport the needed equipment with them. It also provides for a standby crew to remain at the station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If additional resources are needed, remaining personnel would be at the station ready to respond,â&#x20AC;? said Okum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Responding to an emergency in the municipal fire apparatus allows for a quicker response,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identified as an emergency response vehicle where personal vehicles are not.â&#x20AC;? The scene is less congested as well, added Okum, without the potential almost 30 personal vehicles on scene. This means other vehicles, including police, paramedics or hydro or gas companies, have easier access to the scene. The change also prevents firefighters from getting back into their personal vehicles and contaminating them. The pilot involved tracking randomly selected response times, which were deemed unchanged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The response trial did not affect response times in a negative way. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been determined the trial has been a success,â&#x20AC;? said Okum. His presentation included a breakdown of where the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 27 firefighters live and work. Sixty-three per cent reside in Arnprior

ADHSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Todd Nicholson, John Leslie to participate in Sochi Paralympic Winter Games Continued from front

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing an amazing job. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great leader in the sport and advocating for the sport,â&#x20AC;? Nicholson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone beyond expectations others may have had in their minds. The futureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very bright for John.â&#x20AC;? Leslie appears in a Petro Canada commercial promoting the upcoming games. Nicholson encourages everyone, not just those in parasports, to watch the games: to witness the intensity and competitive spirit; to see the greatest athletes in their given sport; to know the power of sport to transform attitudes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping the games will move people around the world to get the opportunity to participate in sports,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully it encourages everybody to be more active.â&#x20AC;? While in Sochi for the Olympic Games last month,

Nicholson learned firsthand how perceptions toward the physically disabled can alter. Like when he attended the Nagano games in 1998, workers and citizens in Sochi didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at first see the disabled as contributors to society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to deal with me. They thought I was going to break. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to touch me,â&#x20AC;? he said of the early days in Sochi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That changed. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping the (Paralympic) games will do that for the whole country.â&#x20AC;? That ability to adapt and improve found its widest expression in the Olympic ring malfunction during the opening ceremony. By the time the closing ceremony took place, it became an opportunity for organizers to poke fun at themselves by having performers delay their opening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was hilarious. Everyone in the stands were laughing,â&#x20AC;? Nicholson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was one level down from (Russian President Vladimir) Putin and he was laughing. Normally you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see a reaction from them, but as the games went on you could see they were really enjoying it.â&#x20AC;? Nicholson was there as a spectator enjoying the games, but he was also troubleshooting for the March 7 to 16 games. He immediately came to dread transportation issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My first day I thought this is going to be a logistical nightmare. But after a couple of days they were willing to change. It was about getting to the person in power and getting them to understand how you know what you know.â&#x20AC;? He held some trepidation when it came to security issues, but that quickly gave way as did concerns that facilities wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be

His favourite moment came the day before his flight, at 1 a.m., when he got 30 minutes to chat with new International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach. Nicholson said the cooperation between the two sports bodies will likely remain. The camaraderie among athletes at the Olympic Games didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t translate well to

M. Sullivan and Son is Canada’s oldest privately-run construction company. It has generated more than $4.7 billion in sales - in 1924 the business logged $5,012 in revenue, now the firm sees more than $100 million in annual sales. Lori Van Wyk said she is proud to be a member of the Sullivan family and the team. “I’d like to thank the town and surrounding areas that supported us for the book launch and the last 100 years,” she said. “Thanks to the employees and the families from past to present, good employees are our greatest assets.” She went on to thank the board and executive team of M. Sullivan and Son, in particular Bill Holmes the chair of the board and long time employee and family friend. “Finally, thank you to Rob Ball the CEO of

M. Sullivan and Son and a close family friend. You did it Rob.” Hanington said the book is not only a lively family history but a guide on how to run a successful business. He wrote the book following a series of interviews in 2010 and 2011 with Tommy Sullivan, who has since passed away. “The stories were so rich and the impact of this family on the economy of not only the Ottawa Valley but the country is bigger than I ever supposed,” he said. Long-time employee Gib Tourangeau said he’s always been treated well. Tommy was among his closest friends. STEWART CURRY/SUBMITTED “It’s a great company.

Nature has many signs that spring is here MICHAEL RUNTZ Nature’s Way sign of spring. But robins feed on fruit in winter, and when crab apples and buckthorns produce large crops (as they have this past year), many of those hardy thrushes overwinter. Thus, a sighting of a robin, especially this year, cannot be trusted as a sign of spring. So are there trustworthy

So are there trustworthy signs that the seasons are changing? Well, currently ducks are pairing up and performing age-old courtship rituals. When I was young, there were a couple of signs that indicated winter was stepping aside for spring. One was the barrage of honks descending from compass arrows of geese heading north. But over the years the goose population grew, especially when the Giant race of Canadas was released through Ontario. As winters grew less severe, geese were seen in larger numbers in late fall and winter, and so eventually lost their herald status. The appearance of an American Robin was also a

signs that the seasons are changing? Well, currently ducks are pairing up and performing age-old courtship rituals. Male Common Goldeneyes are performing their comical head-kicks in efforts to win the heart of the object of their desire. Pairs of Mallards are busily head-bobbing as if in agreement that spring has sprung. But if love on the water is not a convincing enough sign for you, then how about nest building? If so, then spring is officially here for two species

are doing just that. Currently Common Ravens and Gray Jays are actively building structures that will soon hold eggs. When I was young, ravens were encountered here only as casual winter visitors. Now they are common residents and their bulky nests, sometimes placed in trees, regularly decorate Hydro towers, railway trestles, silo ladders, and even roofs of tall buildings. Recent reports of ravens carrying large sticks in their beaks reveal that nest building is now underway. In Algonquin Park where winter resides a bit longer than here in the Valley, Dan Strickland has already located a number of Gray Jay nests. His research on Gray Jays exceeds 40 years, and is the world record for the longest continuous study of a bird population performed by one person. This amicable bird characteristically builds nests high up in spindly Black Spruces, so Dan will have his work cut out when he places identification bands on the legs of young Gray Jays a couple of months from now.

Lifestyle - Personally, I love winter. Walks are invigorating for you breathe more oxygen and expend more energy, especially when snowshoeing off the beaten track. And any animal you encounter is equipped with marvellous adaptations for survival in the most challenging season of all. But winter is not everyone’s cup of tea, and its demise is often welcomed with open arms. Especially for those who harbour dislike of snow and cold, signs of spring are now being sought.

EDITORIAL

Connecting with nature Opinion - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret in Arnprior and area. Most people here know the countless benefits of the great outdoors. They understand that our natural environment is one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, greatest assets. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good news indeed to hear that Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks ministers have committed to work together to inspire Canadians to experience nature through parks in ways that support their health and well-being. A news release issued last week says the action was prompted by the first-ever comprehensive evidence-based report in Canada that chronicles the many proven benefits of spending time in nature. The report developed by the Canadian Parks Council â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Connecting Canadians with Nature: An investment in the well-being of our Citizens - compiles research that demonstrates the immense benefits of connecting with the natural world. The benefits touch upon the economy; physical and mental health; spirit and cultural identity; personal development; the welfare of communities and the environment. After a meeting last week of the FederalProvincial-Territorial Ministers Responsible for Parks, a joint statement by Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s park leaders said they are committed to innovate, diversify and adapt the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s park offerings to meet the changing needs of families, and to work with various sectors of Canadian society â&#x20AC;&#x153;to support experiences in nature that enhance Canadiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; collective health, prosperity, growth and productivity.â&#x20AC;? Those sectors include municipalities, school teachers, health practitioners, business leaders, community builders and tourism operators. The parks ministers also agreed to collabo-

rate in developing a passport to parks, to build on existing digital tools that make it easier for Canadians to visit their parks and share best practices to expand programs such as learn-tocamp activities in more jurisdictions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within a generation, Canada has transitioned from a rural to an urban nation, with 80 per cent of Canadians now living in cities. Canadians today spend on average 90 per cent of their time indoors, with increasingly sedentary lifestyles that are contributing to a variety of chronic health issues,â&#x20AC;? said a new release issued after the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From lowering blood pressure, to reducing stress levels, to supporting childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cognitive development, nature has the profound ability to support both our physical and mental health,â&#x20AC;? the release said. The meeting also concluded that green spaces also support job growth and economic prosperity and build stronger communities by creating outdoor tourism and recreation opportunities. With spring just around the corner, get outdoors to explore and enjoy the many gifts of nature. And support our many precious parks. Canadian Parks Council executive director Dawn Carr aptly observed: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extraordinary system of parks, the oldest in the world, offers some of the best places to experience all of natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerful benefits, but we cannot work alone. The Canadian Parks Council is ready to join forces with others, to create new opportunities that will help maximize the many benefits of personally experiencing nature.â&#x20AC;? We hope citizens and community groups will do all they can to encourage fellow Canadians, and Ontarians, to respect and enjoy nature in parks everywhere. They are treasures to be protected, preserved and appreciated.

Midwifery services available in area To the editor: The closure of the RVH Obs Unit is a significant change to the community and the health care options available to childbearing women, and highlights the maternity care crisis being faced by rural communities. I was surprised to see (in stories on the closure), however, that there was no mention of the midwifery services which continue to be available to pregnant women in Renfrew and the surrounding area! The Madawaska Valley Midwives provide another great option for pregnant women, and as federally licensed, primary health care providers, who are funded by the Ontario government to provide care for pregnant and postpartum women, midwifery is an excellent choice for the low-risk mothers who will now be searching for alternative care. Midwives provide the same tests, ultrasounds, and schedule of care as family doctors and obstetricians, and midwives offer longer visits to develop a close, personal connection with their clients, so as to foster a climate of trust and support. The Madawaska Valley Midwives currently hold admitting privi-

leges â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the same as family doctors and obstetricians â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at Pembroke Regional Hospital. The practice delivers over 100 babies per year in Renfrew County. As a bonus, care with midwives is proven to lead to fewer interventions (such as inductions, epidurals, and csections) than care with a doctor, and while emergency situation do arise (which lead to the midwives working in conjunction with the obstetricians at Pembroke), for women who are looking to avoid unnecessary interventions, the midwives may be a perfect choice. In addition, the Madawaska Valley Midwives provide the option of out of hospital (or home) birth, which is a choice that nearly 50 per cent of our clients make each year. The rates of successful breastfeeding are high with midwives, which may be due, in part, to the continued care which we provide to postpartum women and newborns for six weeks after birth. This care includes home visits, which are a welcome and highlyvalued aspect of midwifery care. Megan McCarrell Registered Midwife Renfrew

Arnprior CAO asked to join municipal finance panel News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CAO Michael Wildman has been invited by the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing to join a panel of municipal experts to discuss municipal finances at the Ontario East Municipal Conference in Kingston in September. Wildman will be presenting on municipal financial best practices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is no surprise that the ministry has reached out to Michael,â&#x20AC;? said Arnprior Deputy Mayor Dan Lynch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrival we have seen the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial position and practices steadily improve.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel very privileged to be asked to participate as a speaker about municipal best practices alongside so many qualified experts,â&#x20AC;? said Wildman. Established in 1989, the Ontario East Municipal Conference (OEMC) has become the largest annual regional municipal conference east of Toronto. Since 1993 the Ontario East Economic Development Commission and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing have partnered together to deliver â&#x20AC;&#x153;dynamic programs that engage municipalities within Eastern Ontario to build strong community partnerships leading to enhanced economic opportunities and success.â&#x20AC;? Each year the 500-plus delegates comprise a diverse group of elected officials, economic development professionals, entrepreneurs, municipal employees and service providers, private sector business leaders, and provincial ministry representatives.

New yearbook highlights Renfrew County business Steve.newman@metroland.com

News - For decades there were annual ‘blue books’ that summarized the many resolutions passed by Renfrew County council each year. Now the county has gone one step farther, with a 2013 yearbook of county business. Copies of the 112-page publication were released at the Feb. 26 meeting of county council, while the same copy was made put on the county website of countyofrenfrew.on.ca in mid-February “The intention of the book was to have a living record of county business for 2013 in terms

of resolutions from committees and county council, as well as to capture the activities and notable events that took place,” said editor Michael Barber, the county’s media relations and grants co-ordinator. Sections include photographic snapshots of special guests to the county or county council by special guests. Snapshots show visits by Ontario Minister of Rural Affairs Jeff Leal; Jim Grieve, assistant deputy minister of the Ministry of Education; Pikwakanagan Chief Kirby Whiteduck; and Governor-General David Johnston. Others sections include photo essays of ribbon-cuttings, the warden’s community service awards, and honorable mentions – or cheque and certificate presentations at county council meetings. The yearbook also contains candid shots of county councillors in council or committee meetings, other staff members, and brief essays of each member municipality of Renfrew County council.

News – OPP report that thieves have been busy in Arnprior stealing valuables from vehicles overnight. Several reports were received from the Bell, Ida and McLachlin street area of town. Stolen items include a wallet, change and two GPS units. OPP remind motorists to not only to lock their vehicles when not in use, but to remove valuables from inside. Thieves are aware people hide wallets and other items in centre consoles and glove boxes. “If you can’t afford to lose it, don’t leave it behind,” advise police. Meanwhile, OPP Constable Denys Baranovskiy is investigating after a quantity of cash was stolen from an office in the Kenwood Corporate Centre in Arnprior on Feb. 27. There is a suspect and the investigation is continuing. A home on Brae-Loch Road in McNab-Braeside Township was broken into on Feb. 21. Sometime during the day time, someone approached the residence on foot and entered the unlocked home. Once inside they took jewelry and a credit card. OPP Const. Chris Colton is continuing to investigate.

He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew on March 26. OPP Const. Marc Bennett investigated. FRAUD AWARENESS

Wintry conditions continue OPP report that two people escaped with minor injuries from this pickup truck Thursday morning, Feb. 27, when it left the road on Highway 17 east of Renfrew. Winter conditions are expected to continue. Drivers are being reminded to exercise caution and drive for the conditions. IMPAIRED TRUCKER On Sunday, Feb. 23 at about 7 p.m., OPP officers were advised of a possible impaired driver in McNab-Braeside. Another motorist reported a transport with an empty flatbed trailer weaving on River Road heading eastbound. The truck was weaving in and out of its lane, flashing high beams, and travelling at various speeds. Officers located the vehicle,

parked on the shoulder of Centre Street in Braeside. A man identified himself as the driver of the vehicle and admitted he had consumed alcohol. After failing a roadside alcohol screening test, he was arrested and transported to the OPP satellite office in Arnprior for further testing. Following those tests, a 41-year-old McNabBraeside man was charged with care or control of a motor vehicle over 80 mgs.

March is Fraud Awareness month in Canada and it provides OPP with an opportunity to bring awareness to the scope of fraudulent activity occurring. From fraudulent e-mails and webpages, to scammers at the door, the simple fact is people should be wary of anyone who is requesting cash, credit card, banking information or social insurance numbers. “They are trying to steal your money, or trick you into parting with it,” warn police. If you have been scammed, OPP urge you to report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. It keeps statistics on the types and frequency of frauds, and can assist with prevention information, and will work with police if there are suspects. Ways to report fraud are: • On-line at https://www. antifraudcentre.ca; • Toll-free 1-888-495-8501; • Toll-free fax 1-888-654-9426; • Email info@antifraudcentre. ca. R0012578251

Photoaging March Break is approaching and a trip South is on the horizon for many. With visions of sand, surf and palm trees, how many people are also thinking about the long term effects of sun on their skin? This time of year tends to yield quite a few sunburns to those who travel south, which can lead to the start of photoaging and even worse skin cancer. Photoaging is premature aging of the skin caused by repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV) primarily from the sun, but also from artificial UV sources such as a tanning bed. Photoaging is different from chronologic aging, as the damaging effects of UV rays from the sun (or artificial tanning sources) alter the normal structures of the skin. It is important to not only bring sunscreen but to apply it frequently during the length of your vacation. Even waterproof formulas need to be reapplied as water, sand; towels and sweat help remove their effectiveness. Obviously looking older than you truly are is not high on the desired list, but neither is skin cancer. Skin cancer is the now the 8th most common cancer in Canada. Approximately 5,500 Canadians were diagnosed with melanoma in 2011 and 950 died from it. Melanoma is one of a handful of cancers where the incidence in Canadians continues to grow (1.4% per An example of premature aging. Always year in men, 1% per year in women). use an SPF of 30.

News - Application to the province for a $1.5-million, four-year Healthy Kids Community Challenge grant has received Renfrew County council’s stamp of approval. With the backing of other health-related agencies, the county’s child care division is applying for the grant that will be awarded to as many as 30 Ontario municipalities, with populations of 10,000 to 200,000, by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The county’s population is about 100,000. The maximum allowable grant is $1.5 million. At the Feb. 27 meeting, Renfrew County council unanimously supported the application, following a presentation by Renfrew County and District Health United health promoter Brian Brohart and Judy Mulvihill, the child care services manager for Renfrew County. If the grant is approved, the Healthy Kids Community Challenge program would dove-tail nicely with three components of the seven-part Renfrew Country strategic plan, said the two speakers. Those components are the development of a linked trail system, promotion of active transportation and the fostering of health promotion and disease prevention. The components are seen by health-related agencies as necessary if the county residents are to shed their reputation as one of the most obese and unfit populations in Ontario.

Mayor Janice Visneskie Moore. The program also follows the provincial health ministry’s release last year of the report, No Time to Wait, that documents the need for action to deal with such concerns as Ontario’s high level of diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Key local community partners in a Healthy Kids Community Challenge program would include the health unit, licensed child care facilities, child service agencies, municipal recreation departments, schools and local businesses. If the grant application is successful, program activities might include active transportation awareness campaigns, school breakfast programs, after-school cooking clubs, and new food and beverage policies at recreation centres. However, it’s up to the grant recipient and team members to develop their own particular activities. “It needs to be more than recreation and food policy,” said Brohart. “Together, collectively, we can do this and help make Renfrew County a leader because of our outdoor spaces and activities.” If successful, the health ministry would provide communities with a healthy-living theme (along with social

Sports - The Arnprior Juvenile Packers had a busy weekend with four playoff games in four nights. On Thursday, Feb. 27 the Arnprior Juvenile Packers began their series with a win over the Richmond Royals 8 to 3. On Friday, Feb. 28, Arnprior was at home to the visiting Osgoode Rideau Senators. The second place Senators were overwhelmed by the Packers forward line of Casey Shipman #22, Tyler Virgin #24 and the tenacity of Boden Zvonarich #9 and never recovered. The Packers won 13-2. On Saturday, March 1 the Packers were in Carp to play the West Carleton Warriors. The Packers were missing some of their key defencemen and lost a wellfought game 5-4. It was only their second loss all season. On Sunday, March 2 Arnprior was in Smith Falls to play the Bears. Smiths Falls played really well but could not beat the star trek type forceďŹ eld put up by Arnprior goaltender Mike Cheslock. He was just amazing, giving Arnprior the 8-0 win.

It was that kind of season. Chris Marchand slips through the defence for a breakaway in second period action on Monday night. A goal would have tied the game and given the Packers the momentum. It was not to be. Almonte Thunder went on to win the game 2-1, and the series 4 games to 2.

Packers’ season comes to an end Sean Marcellus

Sports - The Arnprior Junior B Packers finished up a strong season as they fell 2-1 to the Almonte Thunder on Monday night as the Thunder took the best of seven series 4-2. It was a bittersweet end to a strong season by such a young hockey team but they showed a ton of effort in front of a packed Nick Smith Centre and things will only go up from here. Almonte moves on to take on the Renfrew Timberwolves in the Valley Division Finals. The Packers led the series 2-1 after defeating the Thunder back on Wednesday, Feb. 26 by a 4-3 score but then the young squad hit a wall. They would fall 5-0 to Almonte on Friday, Feb. 28, then 4-0 on Saturday March 1 before losing Monday evening 2-1. The good news is that the Packers will have a handful of players returning for next season as they competed this season with a team mostly consisting of 17-year-olds.

Arnprior will be saying goodbye to leading scorer Damian Armstrong who brought character and hard work to the table every game and helped a lot of the young players grow their games. The Packers will also say goodbye to goaltender Erik Miksik who led the conference in wins (19) and took home Valley Division Top Goaltender honours. “The guys should be proud of their effort and not hang their heads, it was an honour and a privilege to coach these fine young men and I look forward to next season,” said head coach Bill Griese. “It is nice to watch these young kids develop throughout the season, training camp next year should be very intense and competitive.” Preparation for next season will begin in the coming months, but first will be the team banquet which will be in late April followed by a planned alumni golf tournament. Stay tuned Packers fans, Twitter and Facebook feeds will be running weekly as usual.

Two Bluefish compete in Eastern Ontario Regionals

Local skier earns a fourth as Calabogie U10s top podium Anne Lefebvre Calabogie Ski Racing Club

Sports - The hard-working Arnprior Bluefish are at it again. After several qualifying meets during which the team swam strongly and achieved many personal bests, two swimmers were able to advance to the Eastern Ontario Swimming Association (EOSA) 2014 championships. EOSA was held in Belleville Feb. 1-2. The swim meet is attended by only the fastest swimmers in eastern Ontario. Each swimmer must swim qualifying times in at least three separate events before they become eligible to attend the meet. This year two Arnprior Bluefish swimmers were able to enter after qualifying. Cameron Sheppard made regional times in three events and Rylee Moffatt in five events. Sheppard swam in two events, the 100-m freestyle and 100-m backstroke. He achieved personal best times in both and was solidly inside the top-10 with a seventh place in the free and ninth in backstroke. Moffatt swam in three events, the 100-m backstroke, 200-m backstroke and 100-m freestyle. She was also successful, attaining a personal best in the 200-m backstroke and tying her 100-m back personal best. These swimmers lead the way as the Bluefish continue to improve. R0012579911

Sports - Calabogie’s rapid racers continue to own the podium this season. The latest successes come from the U10 group. The Calabogie Ski Racing Club hosted a giant slalom at Calabogie Peaks Feb, 16 for this age group. It was a home hill crowd who cheered on Wyatt Campbell-Brunke of Renfrew and Noah Matthews of Calabogie as they zoomed into first and second place. Thys Blok of White Lake was just outside the top-10, in 11th. Connor Guttin of Mountain sped to 30th place, with Riley Cotter of Ottawa came in 38th. Nolan Guttin of Mountain skied well but had a crash on the first run. Meanwhile, Louise Stonham of Arnprior turned up the heat and laid down two solid runs to finish fourth. Nicole Duff of Pembroke is also starting to find the speed, with a 17thplace finish. The U12s travelled to Edelweiss Feb. 15 for their own giant slalom race. Sam Alexander of Carp channelled Olympian Ted Ligety in his quest for giant slalom glory – and succeeded with another first place. Jeremy Van Grunsven of Odessa laid down the two best runs of his career, landing in third and stepping on the podium for the first time. Luke Hansen of Renfrew and Wesley Mat-

tha of UOV and Alyssa Steggall of Stittsville had some hiccups in the Kombi but persevered and finished 35th, 36th, 37th. Alyssa was 30th and Jessica 33rd in the PSL. Alex Kerr of Kemptville and Alexa Loudiadis of Ottawa were among the Kombi’s victims – this was a very tough, tight course. Alex rallied in the PSL with a 36th place, but Alexa’s injury on the first race prevented a comeback for now. Sam Duff of Pembroke was champion of the Kombi and dropped to second in the PSL. Jack Alexander of Carp sped to a personal best fourth W.

Lifestyle - Most people are very aware of their own teeth. We know about plaque control, cavity prevention and the social evils of bad breath. Most people also visit their dentist regularly. Despite this awareness, many pet owners do not realize their animals are subject to the same problems. The most common disease in pet animals is periodontal disease. They are also subject to broken teeth, orthodontic problems and even cavities. All of these problems will affect your animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth, obviously, but can also lead to the infections that introduce bacteria into other parts of the body. In other words, bad teeth can lead to a sick pet. Pet owners rarely notice any change in their petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behaviour, so they assumed thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fine. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprising. Our pets descend from wild ani-

mals and in the wild animals do not advertise that they are sick, in pan or have a tooth ache. Most animals simply adopt a stoic attitude to chronic pain. But if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had a chronic tooth ache, you know the meaning of pain. The first step is to look in your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth on a regular basis. If the gums appear red or inflamed, if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a foul odour, if you see pus at the gum line or broken teeth, see your veterinarian right away. He or she will assess the problem and formulate a treatment plan. The longer term solution is to look after your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teeth with regular brushing and checking, just like you do with your own. Dental homecare is preventative maintenance. It can not correct a problem once it has developed. Moreover, if there is a painful condition in the mouth, brushing will be very unpleasant for the animal and we do not want that.

Therefore, a homecare program should only be started after a very thorough oral evaluation to ensure that there are no problems that need treatment prior to starting brushing. The goal with a homecare program is to be brushing your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teeth on a daily basis to remove plaque before it becomes firmly attached to the tooth surface and before it mineralizes to become tartar. Plaque will form on a clean tooth within hours and can start to form tartar within a few days. Therefore, brushing daily will be far more effective than doing it two or three times a week. Doing it less than every other day actually provides no benefit. Ian owns ad operates Wags & Whiskers Dog and Cat Grooming and Puppy Kindergarten at 118 John St. North, Arnprior.

She is a beautiful, two year old calico that desperately needs to ďŹ nd a quiet, adult home where she can be spoiled and pampered. Josie is not fond of other pets and would prefer to be the only pet in the home. Due to her dislike for other animals, she is not doing well at the shelter and has to reside in a cage.

Female entrepreneurs recognized for International Women’s Day News - Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MP Cheryl Gallant has recognized economic contributions made by local female entrepreneurs in the lead-up to celebrations on International Women’s Day this Saturday, March 8. “Small and medium-sized businesses are the main source of jobs and economic growth in our communities,” said Gallant. “On International Women’s Day 2014, we celebrate the economic and social contributions by female owners of small and mediumsized enterprises in our city and towns.” In the south end of the riding, Sherri Lynn Shalla, owner of McPhail and Perkins Furniture of Renfrew, and Carolyn Jakes, former president of the Calabogie and Area Business Association (CABA), were praised by Gallant for con-

tributing greatly to the local economy and to their communities. The MP noted that McPhail and Perkins Furniture was recently honoured with Retailer’s Choice Diamond Award for best furniture store. CABA is a proactive association with a mandate of promoting the endeavours of the local business community. International Women’s Day was established by Canada in 1977, following a United

Nations resolution calling on member states to proclaim a day for women’s rights and international peace. The theme of International Women’s Week 2014 is Strong Women. Strong Canada. Canadian Women – Creating Jobs One Business at a Time. The theme seeks to highlight the important role played by women entrepreneurs in the Canadian economy. A total of 15.6 per cent of small and medium-sized busi-

nesses in Canada are majorityowned by women, employing over 1.5 million Canadians, and contributing an estimated $148 billion to the Canadian economy annually. Since 2007, the Government of Canada has provided more than $53 million in funding for projects that specifically focus on improving women’s economic security and prosperity, including over $9 million in support of women’s entrepreneurship.

Thank You! SUBMITTED

Defeat of ‘Million Jobs’ Act frustrates MPP parties working together to deny Ontarians the jobs and economic opportunities they so desperately need,” said Yakabuski. “By voting to maintain the current approach to taxes and debt, they’ve renewed their commitment to mortgaging our province’s future.” The vote Feb. 27 further reinforces a trend of the Liberal and NDP caucuses working together to maintain the status quo on Ontario’s uncompetitive tax and energy rates, charged Yakabuski. He noted that included in the Million Jobs Act was a plan to rein in the cost of hydro by eliminating the unaffordable Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) program that paid “artificially inflated

prices” for some forms of energy generation. “I have heard from numerous businesses in my riding that if we don’t lower the cost of energy that they can’t afford to keep operating,” Yakabuski said. “Tim Hudak’s plan for affordable energy in the province will allow our businesses to prosper and this will lead to them hiring more people.” By voting against the Million Jobs Act the Liberal and NDP parties have denied Ontarian’s a plan to put more young people in skilled trades, increase business investment, and rein in the bureaucratic runaround and red tape that currently plagues Ontario’s economy, Yakabuski concluded.

Amazing deals on the coolest events, restaurants, fashion finds, activities & adventures Buy together and we all win!

On behalf of the McNab Braeside Firefighters Association we would like to express our sincerest appreciation to all those that supported our Association’s Winter Fire Ball Gala on February 15th. To our sponsors who donated for both the silent and live auctions, a huge THANK YOU! The support we received from the community for the event was exceptional. The evening wasn’t just about firefighters supporting firefighters but communities supporting each other. Many thanks go out to Randy Paulen for a fabulous meal, Tracey Climo of Mel’s Flowers and Decorating for the beautiful transformation of the hall and to The Front End for keeping us on our toes all evening. To our junior Firefighters Kevin and Dylan, and to Patti Dodge you guys did an outstanding job, amazing! For everyone who helped bring this event to life, your hard work was much appreciated!

News – Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski has expressed his frustration with the Liberals and NDP joining forces to defeat Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak’s private members’ bill, entitled the Million Jobs Act, 2014. In a news release last Friday, Yakabuski maintained that if the Bill had passed, it would have created the economic conditions in Ontario to enable the private sector economy to produce more jobs and increase take-home pay for the average family by lowering taxes, reducing the provincial debt and reining in skyrocketing energy rates. “This is just another example of the Liberal and NDP

A night at community rink left everyone warm with contentment Lifestyle - It certainly wasn’t anything to get up in the middle of the night and write home about, according to my cousins from Ottawa. They had rinks inside of heated buildings and ice as

smooth as glass, whereas the little rink behind the Northcote School was anything but grand. But it suited our purposes well, and certainly got lots of use once the ice was built up on the patch of

ground that in the summertime was nothing but weeds and hay growing willy-nilly. The rink had stand-up boards on two sides, and each end was open so that we could just walk right onto the ice easily. As soon as the winter had settled in, the boys of senior fourth, along with their fathers, started building up the ice. It was a major job, since every drop of water had to be hauled from the farms around, or from the pump in the middle of the schoolyard. It was brought in big barrels, and timed so that many sleighs would arrive at the same time, and the water dumped on the spot. Using pails to take water from the school pump was a wasted exercise, since most of it would be spilled before hitting the rink, and a pail of water did little to build up the ice. No one got on the ice until it was of the depth the Senior Fourth boys thought was proper, and this could take weeks at the start of winter. And then, finally, it was deemed suitable! And what a day that was. Miss Crosby, who excused no one from a full day of schooling, on that day, cut the classes short, allowed us to bring what passed for skates, and have an hour of fun before heading home. And what an hour it was! Of course, the ice was full of

lumps and cracks and ridges, and until we learned what area of the rink to avoid, we spent most of the time picking ourselves up off the new ice. A couple of the farm fathers had made wide-bladed shovels, attached to the handle of forks, and the rule was that after each use, the ice had to be shovelled off, and the accumulated snow shoved through the two openings at either end of the rink. The older boys took advantage of this chore, and did it with their skates still on, and I noticed they always managed to get a good skate in while doing it, and often had a fast game of shinny in the bargain. If there wasn’t a Saturday night house party in the community, whole families went to the Northcote School rink. Most came on big flat-bottomed sleighs, and they circled a big steel barrel that was filled with firewood, and once lit, the flames shot a mile into the sky, and even though there was scarcely enough heat to take the chill out of your bones, it gave a bit of relief to the freezing night

air. Women sat on the sleighs wrapped in blankets, and most of the men stood around the burning barrel, smoking their pipes and talking farm talk. We children put on our skates on the sleighs, and mine were those hateful bob skates, dull as dishwater, and rusted brown. I used them until Miss Crosby one night, arrived with a pair of regular skates for me ... handing them to me in a brown paper bag so that no one would know of the deed. I was ecstatic and finally was able to keep up with bad Marguirite, who not only had new skates, they were as white as the driven snow, and her mother had attached tiny silver bells to the laces, and she tinkled like someone from a fairy tale as she skated around and around the rink. There was no music, of course. Not like in the rink in Renfrew where we once went to see an ice revue brought out from Ottawa, and listened to songs like ‘Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer true’, and ‘The Skater’s Waltz’. We would skate until Mr. Briscoe blew a whistle and that meant the fun was over for that night. We would try to do one more ‘Crack the Whip’, and then the boys would use the big shovels and scrape off the chips and

snow, and another couple of barrels of water, kept on one of the big sleighs, would be poured over the surface of the rink, left to freeze over solid before our next night of skating. Then we would all head into the Northcote School where the Ladies Aid would have big pots of steaming hot chocolate sitting on the stove in the middle of the schoolroom. Always there were oatmeal cookies and ginger snaps, all of which vanished in jig time. I would tumble into bed, happily exhausted, with my toes still cold as ice, after crawling out of my clothes which would be soaked right through to my navy blue fleece-lined underwear, but with a feeling of utter joy and contentment. Our whole family would feel the same. My three brothers would have had a night of rough-housing, my sister Audrey would be asked to skate with a boy she fancied, I would be with my best friends, and Mother and Father would be happy that another night of community fun was had, and hadn’t cost a penny!

(ABMSH) are hosting their first â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Breakfast Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Learnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in partnership with Tierney Stauffer LLP of Arnprior at the Galilee Centre, Arnprior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been asked many times, throughout the year, for help when it comes to certain subjects such as wills, estates, funeral planning

and moreâ&#x20AC;?, commented Dennis Harrington, executive director ABMSH. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They asked and we listenedâ&#x20AC;?. ABMSH is now offering, to all those 55 years and older, the opportunity to learn more about these subjects at their Breakfast Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Learnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the first to take place Wednesday, March 26 at the Galilee Centre. The first presentation will be on wills and estate planning with guest lawyer Bradley Samuel B.S.Sc., J.D. Associate with Tierney Stauffer LLP, Arnprior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very pleased that the partners at Tierney Stauffer LLP agreed to support this important project, said Harrington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To have a pro-

fessional involved means so much and brings integrity to our Breakfast Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Learn projectâ&#x20AC;?. Bradley Samuel joined Tierney Stauffer LLP as a Student-at-law in 2012, where he gained considerable exposure to all areas of practice. Upon his Call-to-the Bar in 2013, he joined the Arnprior office of Tierney Stauffer LLP. He is currently building his solicitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice, and is primarily responsible for matters involving wills and estates.

EMERGENCY 24H SERVICE

High school teacher instructs ADHS, RCI students at same time Raider Review

News - Four students at Renfrew Collegiate Institute are the first in Renfrew County public school board history to participate in a remote learning class for a senior calculus and vectors class. With insufficient numbers in this cohort to run the senior math class, another viable solution was found to service the four students who needed the course for university. The class is based on a Skype-like atmosphere that is set up in RCI’s library seminar room. Shannon Perry-Bell instructs the class in-person at Arnprior District High School and on the video teaches the students at RCI

at the same time. The RCI students are experiencing everything the Arnprior students are except for the fact that they are set up in the library watching a screen instead of being in the exact classroom as the teacher. “I would say it’s a pretty neat concept,” said RCI student Amanda Tubman. “We’re learning alongside kids we’ve never met through a television-Smart Board-video call combo which allows us to speak, listen and share our work with each other. “There is certainly some forward thinking happening at the board level when it comes to making courses available to students,” added Tubman. “It’s like eLearning but better because you can speak to the teacher instead of just

logging on the eLearning website whenever you want,” explained RCI guidance councillor Todd Stewart. “It’s helpful in smaller schools where you don’t have enough students to sign up for certain courses. It allows students to be more successful than eLearning.” Although there were a few technological issues at first, all of these bugs have been worked out. Zach Kubiseski, a participant in the pilot program, likes the idea that the four students have access to a teacher and said, “The interaction keeps getting better every week.” The unique learning opportunity is an extension of the regular classroom, but it is a pilot project so its future remains unknown.

Suicide amongst teens topic of March 19 information session Speakers Steve Walsh (Community Mental Health-The Royal) and Tom Sidney (Renfrew Suicide Prevention and Crisis Centre) will lead a forum to help parents better understand how to help teenagers cope with life’s challenges and better recognize when children are in distress. When parents learn of the risk factors for teens and understand how the teenage brain rewires itself during puberty, they gain insight on what some of the stressors are for teenagers. The era of social media and ‘being connected’ is actually contributing to children’s loss of individuality and discomfort in spending time alone. They have little to no down time, resulting in feelings of iso-

lation. Other triggers can be moving to a new school, changing communities, going to university, leaving family and friends, and social and peer pressures. Since the opening of the Renfrew Suicide Prevention and Crisis Centre, 80 per cent of the youth who have accessed the centre have done so because of thoughts of suicide. The information session will be held at St. Joseph’s High School from 7 to 9 p.m. Effective coping strategies and how to help children build resilience will be discussed. For more information, contact Janet Springer 613-432-6694 or janet.springer@ hotmail.com.

News - Suicide among teens, unfortunately, is common today. The death of children is extremely painful for the families, friends and communities. Parents are often at a loss of understanding why children take their own lives, nor do they always recognize the signs and symptoms that our children are in need. In many cases, the suicide could have been avoided, if only adults knew what to look for. As learning about mental illness can help everyone cope with the disruptions of body, mind and spirit, the Renfrew Rotary club is hosting a free information evening Wednesday, March 19 to discuss teenage mental health.

The moment that you died My heart was torn in two, One side filled with heartache, The other died with you. I often lie awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon my cheeks. Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday, But missing you is heartache That never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart And there you will remain, Until some day we’ll be together again Forever loved & missed by Loving wife Gert Brydges

If we could visit Heaven, Even for a day, Maybe for a moment, The pain would go away. We’d put our arms around you, And whisper words so true, That living life without you, Is the hardest thing to do. No matter how we spend our days, No matter what we do, No morning dawns or evening falls, When we don’t think of you.

Greatly missed and loved forever, Kev, Con, Grandma Carson and Berta DEATH NOTICE

Little did we know that morning God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, But 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 by 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.

To learn more about the risk factors for kidney disease, resources, organ donation, volunteering or events please visit The Kidney Foundation of Canada website www.kidney.ca

Kidney disease: Common, harmful, treatable One of the hardest parts of diagnosing kidney disease is the fact that kidney problems often have few symptoms. For this reason, kidney disease is often called a silent killer. Medical experts estimate that as many as 2.1 million Canadians have kidney damage, but most of them arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even aware of it. Kidney disease is a term used to describe kidneys that have been damaged and are not working at ideal capacity. For most people, this damage happens gradually, over many years. When kidney damage is extensive, people develop kidney failure, or end stage renal disease. At this point, in order for a person to survive, they must undergo replacement therapy (dialysis or a kidney transplant) to do the work their kidneys can no longer do. Most people can live normal, healthy lives until their kidney function falls to 10 to 15 per cent. That is when most of the health problems become more noticeable. While many people have no symptoms of kidney problems, even when their kidneys are badly damaged, common warning signs can include: s(IGHBLOODPRESSURE s#HANGESINURINE s0UFlNESSAROUNDTHEEYES SWELLINGOFHANDSANDFEET ESPECIALLYINCHILDREN s"LOODY CLOUDYORTEA COLOREDURINE s0AININTHESMALLOFTHEBACKJUSTBELOWTHERIBSNOTAGGRAVATEDBYMOVEMENT s%XCESSIVEFOAMINGORDIFlCULTYPASSINGURINE s0ERSISTENTGENERALIZEDITCHING s0ASSINGLESSOFTENORMOREOFTENATNIGHT s&ATIGUE s0ROTEININURINE s,OSSOFAPPETITEORWEIGHT Uremia, which means â&#x20AC;&#x153;urine in the blood,â&#x20AC;? is one of the signs of advanced kidney failure. Uremia occurs when failing kidneys are unable to remove wastes from the body. In most cases, it occurs when kidney damage is severe. Some symptoms that may occur with uremia are: s7EAKNESS s&ORGETFULNESS s.AUSEAORVOMITING s#OLDINTOLERANCE s"ADTASTEINMOUTH s#HESTPAIN s2ESTLESSLEGSORLEGCRAMPS s3KINCOLORCHANGES s$IFlCULTYSLEEPING s$ECREASEDSEXUALDESIRE )FYOUHAVEANYWARNINGSIGNSOFKIDNEYDISEASEORUREMIA ITgSIMPORTANTTOTALKTOYOURDOCTOR0EOPLEWHOAREATGREATERRISKFORKIDNEYDISEASEnTHOSEWITHDIABETES HIGHBLOOD PRESSUREORAFAMILYHISTORYOFKIDNEYDISEASEnSHOULDASKTHEIRDOCTORTOTESTTHEIRKIDNEYFUNCTIONEVERYYEAR4HATWAY ANYPROBLEMSCANBEDIAGNOSEDANDTREATEDEARLY Information courtesy of The Kidney Foundation of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website: www.kidney.ca
