Dispute threatens town services in Arnprior Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – With a lockout or strike looming at the Town of Arnprior, the concern is essential services such as sewage treatment and drinking water distribution could be affected. The town’s 22 unionized employees, some of whom work at the two plants, are under threat of a lockout starting on Sunday, April 15 following lengthy negotiations for a new contract to replace one that expired almost three years ago. Mayor David Reid insists that essential services would “all be looked after.� But CUPE national president Dan Pike isn’t convinced it can be done safer or cheaper. “I don’t know how you’d replace the experienced and well-trained members overnight,� Pike said. “I’d be surprised if you can do it any cheaper, either.� Reid committed to doing everything possible. “We’ll do what we can to keep all essential services going.� Services that could come to a halt include other public works, recreation and pool activities (the ice was removed from the rink on the weekend). Three aquatic instructors are in the union, along with at least one water works person on the union’s negotiation team. Town council isn’t directly involved in the negotiation process, unlike during Terry Gibeau’s time as mayor. But it isn’t unusual to have consultants – in this case County of Renfrew staff – handle talks. Another factor is the fact the town had been without a CAO to participate in the talks. Many councillors are new to municipal politics and have little to no experience in labour law. But the elected representatives remain briefed and instruct the negotiation team at non-public sessions that followed council meetings during the last six months. See TEMPS Page 3

UNITED BY THE CROSSES

It was standing-room-only at a special Good Friday service at the Nick Smith Centre. About 600 people, representing nine local churches, gathered for the special service, which began with three crosses being carried through town to the Nick Smith Centre. It was the first time so many Arnprior area churches combined on a joint Good Friday service and the turnout delighted organizers. Above Lew Ricker and Rev. Andrew Love of Grace-St. Andrew’s United Church place one of the crosses. For more, see Page 53.

Site change process upsets Farmers’ Market Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – The Arnprior Farmers’ Market has found a new location - outside of the downtown area - but not with the help of town staff. Market president Mark Gaetz said the eight-month process left him feeling discouraged and disrespected. “If they really are concerned about making the downtown viable, they should be open to all kinds of entrepreneurial ideas, and instead they ignored us,� Gaetz said. “It’s almost like they couldn’t care less.� The Gableridge Farm owner said it started last summer when he sent a letter to Mayor David Reid asking to block off Elgin Street between John and Daniel streets. That’s been the traditional location of the market, although confined to a few parking spots along the south side.

Gaetz wanted the option to block off the street periodically to host 4H, classic car or similar large-scale events. Organizers figured it would draw more folks downtown to shop at the farmers’ market and local businesses. No one from town hall responded to the idea. So he went down to speak with a staffer. It was a zoning issue, he learned, that would come up at the committee level. Give it two weeks and he would get a letter in response, he was told. “I never got a letter back from the mayor. I never received a letter or explanation,� Gaetz said. That’s when the 20 or so market vendors and organizers began to consider moving out of the downtown. They were already concerned about a few close calls between browsers and passing cars. Another

difficulty had to do with vendors parking far away and having to lug their produce and products to Elgin Street. MOVE TO DANIEL?

The Arnprior Shopping Mall and Canadian Tire were approached to see if they wanted to host the farmers’ market in one of their parking lots. After some hesitation, Canadian Tire became very enthusiastic, Gaetz said, even offering up the location rent-free. Again, though, when it came time to asking the town’s permission, he was told it could be a problem at the zoning level. He asked why produce was allowed to be sold across the street in the Home Hardware parking lot. See FARMERS’ Page 4

Temps can’t take members’ work: union

OFFER REJECTED

That April 4 vote went 17 to 5 against the offer. “It’s not 100 per cent (support for the negotiation team), but it’s an indication. Some just want it over with,� Pike said. “But 17 to 5 when the employer is threatening a lockout and you’re in a small town and small unit. I’m not disappointed at all.� The rejection of the supervised vote leaves the door open for the town to lock out the employees. “It’s unfortunate and disappointing they did not accept,� Reid said. “We are still hopeful we can get something done.� The union isn’t moving in the direction of a possible strike, though. The members would have to vote in favour of the negotiation team taking the action. On the union’s side, Pike said supervisors have provided untrue information to union members, hence the questions to managers.

“There are lots of innuendos going around. We are getting supervisors that are giving members untruths,â€? Pike said, adding that some supervisors are dealing with facts while others are being “somewhat provocative.â€? The town appreciates and respects the work done by employees, yet it must also protect what is fair for ratepayers, Reid said. However, if it comes down to a media campaign of tax increases versus wage increases, Pike said it will be a red herring the union could easily overcome. “This is largely a non-monetary dispute. We should be able to achieve a settlement,â€? he said. “They told us at the table the Town of Arnprior is in good ďŹ nancial shape. The non-unionized employees were given an increase (Jan. 11) greater than the unionized are asking for.â€?

bureaucrat – was given a buy-out package. The replacement CAO quit recently on the day he was to begin work. The internal chaos has meant the town hasn’t had consistent goals during the talks. Agreed-to items have been put back on the table, and the town has now introduced a major problem, according to Pike. The town now wants to use term employees; temps for up to six months at a time. The union wants assurances that the temps won’t be doing union members’ work. Pike said the term employees could replace union jobs unless the town guarantees otherwise. Reid said he was disappointed the union took the issue to the media, preferring that talks remain behind closed doors. However, at Tuesday’s council meeting he read from a prepared statement that included the line: “The town believes that the offer presented was very fair and in terms of annual wage increases is above the average that unionized employees are currently receiving in Ontario.� Pike said when the town went over his team’s head and lost the vote, it was made clear the town’s next step could be a lockout. He said the public deserves to know if services such as municipal water could be affected. “The Town of Arnprior has put CUPE 4960 members in a tough position and they need to realize that these employees work tirelessly to provide quality services to the community of Arnprior,� said CUPE 4960 president Dan Hebert. “It’s time the Town of Arnprior treat its workers with respect and fairness and give them the settlement they deserve.�

24/7 WORK DAY

He said there are three major sticking points: hours of work, standby pay, and beneďŹ ts. The town has indicated it wants the ability to operate 24/7. That means it wants the right to schedule work during nights and weekends. Pike said unless the town is willing to sit down and discuss deďŹ nitions and perimeters of the proposal (and how it affects health and safety), he can’t recommend it to the members. The town also wants to reduce standby pay. And the town won’t give the better of two beneďŹ ts packages to ďŹ ve unionized members. Another sticking point, with the talks going on for so long, is the term of the agreement. Most are for a two-year period. The town wants the current contract to end April 2012. The union wants it for Dec. 31, 2011, a date already agreed to in principle during an earlier round of talks. The earlier date would put the union in a position next time around to strike during the winter snowplowing season. Pike noted also means the two sides going into new talks right away. Morale is decent at the moment, he indicated, but members would like for a long-term deal to allow for sustained peace to break out. Reid insists the almost three-year negotiation process has taken place in good faith on the town’s side. An election took place and a chief administrative ofďŹ cer (CAO) – the town’s top

Continued from front And as Reid pointed out, since the union “hiredâ€? an experienced organizer from CUPE to settle its contract, the town needed to do the same. “We are very involved, even if not sitting at the table,â€? he said, adding that a scheduled meeting Friday between the town’s consultants, the union, and a conciliation ofďŹ cer is a “hopefulâ€? sign. In a news release, CUPE has urged councillors to take a more active role in the talks. “Council has decided they do not want to participate in bargaining anymore As a result, negotiations are being dictated and lead by outside counsel,â€? charged Pike. “We are asking Town Council to get involved in order to prevent a work stoppage.â€? While Reid is conďŹ dent he is getting accurate information from consultants, council isn’t convinced the union’s negotiating team is doing the same for its members. He said members have been asking managers questions, but that labour rules prevented managers from offering information. The town also made two offers, but the union’s team didn’t bring either to the membership for a vote. Those are among the reasons town bypassed the union’s team and brought its ďŹ nal offer directly to the members for a vote.

Haley’s strike shows no sign of coming to an early end Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The strike at Haley Industries has extended into its second week. Gates were locked early Tuesday morning, April 3, following a 96 per cent vote in favour of strike action. The action came at 12:01 a.m. that day. Located on Magnesium Road in Whitewater Township, Haley Industries manufactures airplane parts for Magellan Aerospace. Workers at the plant come from all over the Upper Ottawa Valley, including several from the Arnprior area. Some picketers relocated in front of Marshall’s on O’Brien Road in Renfrew Tuesday morning, April 10, due to the ongoing relationship the business has with Haley’s. Management at Haley’s has been carpooling to work, Local 4820 chief steward Peter Vanderploeg said Tuesday afternoon. Investigations continue into two vehicular incidents involving people on the picket line, he added. A female picketer was bumped by an SUV Wednesday, April 4, and a similar incident happened with a male employee two days later. About 388 Haley production and maintenance employees voted 96 per cent to strike after the collective bargaining agreement expired March 15, while a second vote last Thursday again resulted in an overwhelming majority voting in favour of strike action. On April 4, clerical workers rejected the company’s final offer of a wage freeze for three years, reported Steelworkers eastern Ontario staff representative David Lipton. They have joined the picket line, bringing the total to about 400 employees. The picket line has been kept in place 24-7 since the strike began, Vanderploeg noted. That included all Easter weekend. Vanderploeg wouldn’t say when he thinks a settlement might be reached. “We haven’t heard anything back from the company yet. We are waiting for them to get in touch with us.” It’s Haley Industries’ first strike since 1990, said one man on the picket line. The employees are striking for better wages.

A disappointing five of about 120 members of the Arnprior downtown business improvement area showed up at the annual general meeting March 28. Giant Tiger owner Mike Marcil, left, Arnprior Quality Cleaners and Simply Beautiful owner Chantal Beaulieu, Audrey’s In Town owner Audrey Jamieson, BIA events co-ordinator Shay Klimpel, and Lighthouse and Antiques Etcetra owner Jim Wright discuss the year ahead. The BIA will again host the popular Concerts In the Park series at Robert Simpson Park starting June 24. Downtown businesses are also participating in White Pine Festival and the town’s 150th anniversary celebration June 8-10.

Farmers’ Market looks to curling club for its new location Continued from front “They skirted around it,” Gaetz said. Next attempt was at the Arnprior Agricultural society fairgrounds, specifically in the curling club building. Vendors liked the idea of not being dependent on the weather, and parking closer to the site. And there is room to grow, unlike downtown. The town said it is not zoned properly, but that it could be argued that the location is acceptable. The curling club seems the final spot now, though the market must pay rent and insurance. And with the low visibility, marketing dollars will have to be spent.

Gaetz said he feels bad for the downtown and its business improvement area (BIA). He understands it will lose business. “Their intentions were very, very good,” he said. But he added it was difficult to get reimbursed for paying out of pocket when Heritage Radio set up entertainment at one farmers’ market last year. BIA NOT HAPPY

For its part, the BIA executive at its recent annual general meeting expressed dismay at the market’s decision to move,

but wished the vendors well. “We appreciated having them downtown and wish them well in their new location,” said Jim Wright, owner of Antiques Etcetera. Reid said he recalls something about the proposal, but couldn’t say for sure what it was about until he investigates. He intends to look into it further. “I will definitely follow up this week and find out the perspectives from the town,” he said, adding that Gaetz deserved a timely response – even if it was a response he would disagree with. The first farmers’ market is set for Saturday, May 26.

4 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, April 12, 2012


EMC news - McNab-Braeside residents will have two major public meetings to attend in the near future. Township councillors agreed last week that before making a decision on whether to accept an offer by Arnprior for the amount to allow McNab-Braeside residents to use town recreation and library services, it will ask the public for input. The date of that meeting has yet to be set. However, council has scheduled an open house and public meeting for Monday, April 16 to explain and accept input into changes proposed by the province to environmentally sensitive zoned land as laid out in the township’s comprehensive zoning bylaw. The province was upset when the previous council based zoning on out-of-date data and maps and appealed the bylaw.

New downtown business garbage regulation questioned

Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news - Downtown businesses generally leave their garbage on the sidewalk the night before trucks come by to pick it up. That’s because owners don’t open until 9 or 10 a.m., and trucks come through town earlier than that in the morning. Trouble is, the town recently passed a bylaw disallowing anyone from putting their garbage out before 6 a.m. on pick-up day. Businessman Doug Smith asked council at Tuesday’s meeting if the town intended

to ticket businessowners or not enforce the bylaw. Mayor David Reid said it makes no sense to have bylaws if authorities don’t intend to enforce them. However, council and staff are looking into the issue. He didn’t say if the garbage pick-up schedule might change. A solution could come up as early as the April 30 council meeting. WAIVE RENTAL FEES

The organizer of a fundraiser for a children’s camp asked council to waive fees in

order to keep costs down. Hyacinth Chatterton said the fees are paid to allow linedancers to use the Nick Smith Centre for this Saturday’s fundraiser (see Page 14). About 75 Arnprior kids attend the camp, which represents about 20 per cent of the total. It’s a multi-denominational religious camp. Mayor David Reid said it is too short of notice to do anything properly. Chatterton asked if the town would agree to hold payment until it arrived at a decision. The suggestion won unanimous support from council.

Gallant declares ‘victory’ in long-gun registry battle STAFF

Cheryl Gallant

EMC news – Her news release was simply headlined ‘Victory’. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant reacted with delight last Thursday after legislation to scrap the long-gun registry received royal assent and became the law of the land. It’s been a long process, with some claiming this day would never come, she noted. “A promise made is now a promise kept,� said Gallant in a message to her constituents. “Thank you for your unwavering support for our Conservative Government’s success in scrapping the wasteful and ineffective long-gun registry,� she proclaimed. She stressed it was an issue that invoked strong opinions in RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke and across the

country. It is something that attracted the attention of the “hearts and minds� of Valley people, she added. “Scrapping the registry was a promise behind which I have stood steadfastly for many years - and our Conservative members delivered on it once we received majority government.� LAST VOTE

Gallant pointed out she had been at several votes to scrap the long-gun registry over the years, and was “extremely disappointed� to have missed the very last Commons vote to scrap the registry. She was in Europe on government business as Chair of a NATO delegation when the vote was held. “I was honoured to stand with my MP Colleague Candace Hoeppner in the Senate to watch our Conservative

members complete the final vote and finally end the long-gun registry,� she said. “Our government has always been clear: we supported the repealing of the long-gun registry because it unfairly targeted law-abiding farmers and hunters, not criminals. Law-abiding Canadians saw it as just another Liberal tax-grab. “That’s why we kept our promise to scrap the federal long-gun registry from the beginning when we all knew the registry as Bill C-68.� Gallant said the end of the registry “has been a long time coming,� but “I’m glad this day has come.� “Together, we are ending the long gun registry once and for all. We have fulfilled our commitment to Canadians.� Not all politicians were happy with

the decision. Liberal Senator James S. Cowan, Leader of the Opposition in the Senate, expressed his disappointment following the final passage of the bill to scrap the gun registry, saying: “This will not make Canadians and their families safer.� LIBERAL DISPLEASED

In a news release, he provide photographs from students and graduates of Ecole Polytechnique, where Marc Lepine went on a shooting rampage in 1989, of specialized weaponry he says can be owned by Canadians without knowledge of police. With the abolition of the long-gun registry, police will no longer have the ability or the right to know who owns such weapons or where they are located, he said.

Miller faces another quarry lawsuit, appeals first verdict Staff

A group of Braeside Ridge residents is taking the Miller Group to court again over the operation of the Braeside Quarry. Last November Judge Rod Sauriol of the Ontario Supreme Court of Justice Small Claims Court ruled in favour of nine residents of the Braeside Ridge. They had taken the Miller Group to claiming nuisance, trespass and negligence because of adverse effects from the temporary asphalt plant operated by the company in the Braeside Quarry in fall 2009. The residents claimed the adverse effects included irritation of the eyes, nose and throat;

loss of appetite; shortness of breath; headaches; and nausea. Miller is appealing the judgment. Now some neighbours of the quarry, are individually filing civil actions for damages for nuisance and trespass in Small Claims Court against Miller Group Inc. arising from emissions from the temporary asphalt plant installed and operated in the quarry during the operating seasons of 2010 and 2011. The Ministry of Environment certificate of approval for the operation warns specifically that adverse effects may arise under certain atmospheric conditions, and cautions the operator to use all reasonable care to prevent such occurrences, as this asphalt plant operates

STRESS ALLEGED

It is also alleged by the complainants that stress and worry caused by the noise and odours have been made worse by lack of availability of Ministry of Environment emission assessment information documenting emissions of particulate matter, sulphur gases, nitrogen gasses, volatile hazardous metals and volatile hazardous organic compounds. At the same time, knowledge of literature documenting the dangers of the emissions is readily available and adds to this stress and worry, the plaintiffs add. As well as the adverse effects, there has

been a loss of “reasonable and ordinary use of property,� such as going outdoors, opening windows for fresh air, making home improvements and gardening, say those initiating the small claims suit. They allege that Miller knew the asphalt plant should not be located in a residential neighbourhood without positive odour and noise control and did not prevent or eliminate the disturbance and repeatedly denied the plaintiffs concerns. “It is alleged that Miller’s conduct was reckless, callous and high-handed,� say the residents in a news release. “This claim alleges that the defendant is liable to the plaintiffs in nuisance, negligence and trespass to property.� Meanwhile, Miller has moved its temporary asphalt plant to its Horton quarry.

EMC news – Could Arnprior become a destination for art-lovers? A local arts group thinks so. Wendo Blondeau has approached the Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce, asking for support for a three-pronged campaign to promote the arts in town. “Our mission is to revitalize the visual art community in Arnprior and the surrounding area,” explained Blondeau. “As Almonte and Burnstown are widely known as thriving art communities, with the collective enthusiasm of our area artists, Arnprior will be part of those areas already established.” The group is proposing an Arnprior and Beyond Discovery tour. “If people are coming to Almonte and Burnstown already for the visual art experience, why not Arnprior?” the group asks. “There is already the existence of established artists such as Kevin Dodds, Paul Perrault and Tara Pocket. Adding additional established and emerging artists to that list, visitors will take notice and include Arnprior in their visual art experience.” The proposal would focus on three distinct marketing opportunities for the town of Arnprior, starting with a window art display for May and into June. In conjunction with Arnprior’s 150th anniversary celebration, the artists will organize Art in the Park for Saturday, June 9. And finally, Art in the Park will advertise a local studio tour for Sept. 29-30. Blondeau said the advertising costs will consist of 5,000 locally printed bilingual pamphlets available thoughout the region with a primary focus on govern-

ment buildings in Ottawa- Hull. To help pay the costs, the group has asked the chamber for a donation of $1,000. Members argue the initiative will go hand-in-hand with revitalizing the downtown core and making Arnprior a destination for shopping, tourism, and arts and culture. “We believe that motto, Where Opportunity Flows and Adventure Grows, can happen,” said Blondeau. WINDOW ART

Running from early May to June 15, the initiative hopes to enhance the charm of the downtown core by giving merchants an opportunity to help promote walking tours of local artwork in storefront windows in the lead-up to Arnprior’s 150th anniversary celebrations The purpose is to fill empty storefronts and approach street front retailers who would be interested in supporting and showcasing the talents of area artists. A supporting color pamphlet will be supplied to retailers, with the purpose of encouraging customers to come into their store for more information. A treasure hunt of sorts with the artwork will conclude with prizes. Small professional signage will be included with the artwork. All retail galleries in Arnprior will be participating. ART ON THE LINE

As part of Arnprior 150th festivities June 9, Art in the Park will be set up at the CN trail park between John and Daniel streets. The one-day event will run from 9 a.m.

to 5 p.m. The area can accommodate up to 30 local artists of various mediums. Talents ranging from visual art in oils and acrylics, jewelry, photography and sculpture will be involved. As an added entertainment element to the day, the artists are inviting young student musicians from the Arnprior School of Music to showcase their talents. Local musicians or buskers will also be invited to participate to entertain the art-viewing audience and food vendors are being scouted. ARNPRIOR & BEYOND STUDIO TOUR

The tour will run 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Saturday, Sept. 29 and Sunday, Sept. 30. The tour stops include: The Gallery Gift Shop, 158 John St. N.;Rail Fence Studio, 64 Carss St.; Lily Creek Photography & Art Studio, 15 Daniel St. N,; Kevin Dodds Gallery, 47 John St. N.; Paul Perreault Studio, 19 Green Meadow Rd.; Chris Van Zanten, 2828 10th Concession Rd., Pakenham; Bayview Art Studio, 136 Dewar Ave., Rhoddy’s Bay; Castleford Studio, 1054 Forrest Lane, Castleford; and Our Place in the Prior Restaurant , 24 Elgin St. W.

Senate reform lost to petty one-upmanship of patronage

W

hen it comes to sharing the pain in what federal finance minister Jim Flaherty calls The Great Recession, there seems to be a glaring omission – the cost of our unelected Senate. It seems not so very long ago everyone was screaming for Senate reform. Then along comes hard economic times, and the discussion fades. But the price tag clearly has not. It seems that when it comes to this odd inner sanctum of patronage appointments, nobody has the guts to stand up and proclaim, “No more.� The Senate has become, quite

clearly, a bastion of bias. Not that the media is lily-white on this issue. Media-bashing is the new favourite pastime of politicians anxious to deflect blame. Bias is really nothing more than human nature. Every person is impacted by his or her own personal beliefs and life experience. Our current federal Conservative minister of the environment is Peter Kent, a former Global TV news anchor. He was duly elected to office. Valid enough. But as for the Senate – that antichamber of waste – that’s where the buck, quite literally, should stop. After a career spent dissecting politi-

cians, should media personalities like Conservative appointments Pamela Wallin and Mike Duffy be handed a gold ticket to the Senate, financed through the public purse, with absolutely no public say whatsoever? This is not just about the warped example set for future generations of reporters when they see former media accepting plum patronage. The message: bias = bonus. The greater concern is how the Liberals and Conservatives have allowed the Senate to become a mere taxpayer-funded game of one-upmanship. This tired, burdensome beast called the Senate should go the way

of the dinosaur, or at least face some dead serious reform. It would be burst-of-spring refreshing to see a party, or a politician, with the gumption to bring Senate reform onto the national agenda and find Canadians some real, substantial savings rather than throwing ‘ayes’ at weak window-dressing. With its strong majority, the ruling Conservative government has the power to move Senate reform forward instead of pushing ahead with punitive plans to make the average citizen work until he or she is 67. It’s time to put a permanent stoppayment on the crazy patronage paycheques and invest that money into

an innovative 21st-century model of the Senate. Should our nation’s chamber of sober second thought not be based on something more substantial than cronyism and blind concurrence? When it comes to job cutbacks, government should resist the urge to pick the low fruit. There’s far more money to be pruned from the sunny top of the Senate tree. If this government is serious about tackling the deficit, it must see there are still savings to be found on Parliament Hill. Someone just needs to be smart enough to see it, and brave enough to act.

LETTER

Aircraft expert convinced F35 deal won’t fly here, or the U.S. To the Editor: There has been so much hyperbole lately about Canada’s planned acquisition of the F35 that the average citizen doesn’t know that the ‘scoop’ is about the real cost of this aircraft. As of today, the 5th of April, a figure has surfaced placing the cost of acquiring 65 aircraft around $25 billion. Up to now, the government has been adamant that they have budgeted $9 billion for this project and they are firm on that. Every day the Associate Minister of National Defense has been using these ‘talking points’ ad nauseam to the point he actually believed that to be true. So too did the Minister of National Defense. After reading American reports and listening to U.S. Congressional insiders, the figures have been going up and up and there is serious doubt that this aircraft will ever see the ‘operational light of day.’ But one wants to believe this aircraft is the ‘best thing since Kraft Dinner.’ I wanted to believe that and I was being brainwashed into believing it! That is until I met an unnamed aeronautical engineer last November, who just happened to be on the same cruise my spouse and I were on. He is employed by Boeing in St. Louis, Missouri and while we were discussing how to make Budweiser, he suggested that other than “sending him to school,� Canada ought to take a course on avionics and rethink the purchase of the F35 because he thought the project was ‘doomed.’ I asked him why he thought that way and he explained that what the United States wanted to develop was an airframe and avionics that would see three variants. The first one would be a stealth aircraft that would meet the air forces requirements. The

second was a similar variant to meet the requirements of the U.S. Marine Corps i.e. vertical take-off and landing capabilities like the Harrier jump jet. The third was also a similar variant for the navy that would meet aircraft carrier operational needs. He stated flatly that this was impossible to achieve at the present time and the developmental history bears this out. The aircraft is simply too costly as things stood. ‘Three in One Oil’ is one thing ... a three-inone airplane is ‘horse of a different colour’. I asked him about an alternative aircraft for the RCAF, and he simply said that there are alternatives on the market that would meet Canada’s needs and at the price budgeted would enable Canada to purchase more than the 65 aircraft budgeted for the F35. He also said he was biased toward the Boeing ‘Super Hornet’. Reason? It will fit the infrastructure already in place for the F18 ‘Hornet.’ It is a very good aircraft in his estimation and will more than meet Canada’s requirements for the next generation. Then he reiterated his opinion that at the ‘end of the day’ the F35 will never make it to the flight lines of the prospective purchasers. The last time I saw this fellow was at the Remembrance Day Ceremony on November 11 of last year. I gave him and his spouse ‘poppies’ and when we parted company, his last words were “remember what we chatted about.� Canada will not be able to afford the F35 ... neither will the United States or anyone else either.� The events of the past week seem to bear out his opinion out.

OPINION

Horwath overshadows Hudak in budget talks To the Editor: After Ontario’s budget was released, the Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath has set the tone for Queen’s Park and Premier McGuinty has no choice but to listen. When Ontario’s budget was presented, Mr. Hudak wanted nothing to do with it and seems to have just walked away from the table. Ms. Horwath, on the other hand, stayed at the table and has calmly and professionally presented alternatives to McGuinty. Ms. Horwath has proposed to protect the ODSP, take off the HST on home heating and to protect over 4,000 childcare spaces, so par-

ents can keep working. In order to offset these new costs, Ontarians who make more than $500,000 would see a very small rise of 2 per cent in their income tax, from 11.6 to 13.16 per cent. This alone would bring in an estimated $570 million a year. Here in our riding, we know that the price of electricity and oil continue to rise with no slowdown foreseeable in the future. Ms. Horwath knows this and wants to send us relief. During the last election the Ontario NDP campaigned on raising corporate taxes to help balance our budget. Premier McGuinty seems to have recog-

nized the basics of this and kept the corporate tax rate where it is. Mr. Hudak wanted it lower, even though all evidence continues to show that this does not encourage any type of economic growth. The latest budget negotiation from the Ontario NDP wants the pay for all newly hired executives of hospitals, universities and other public sector entities to be capped at twice the premier’s salary or $418,000. Also they would like to see extended whistle blower protection to prevent future ORNGE scandals. With Ontario just having their last election a

mere six months ago, Ms. Howath knows that what we need is a working government, not a snap election. She is showing that the Ontario NDP want to work with the liberals to have a functioning government. Mr. Hudak, who has the position of leader of the opposition, seems to have forgotten his role and handed it to Ms. Horwath.

Quiz Gallant on cutbacks to seniors

Diversity festivities questionable

To the Editor: Are you prepared to give up $13,000 during your golden years? MP Cheryl Gallant and Prime Minister Stephen Harper think you are. That’s what the average Canadian will have to give up thanks to the federal budget introduced by the Conservative Party March 29. The budget cuts retirement benefits by raising the age of eligibility for Old Age Security and the Guaranteed Income Supplement from 65 to 67 years, forcing Canadians to postpone their retirement for two years. For low income seniors it’s even worse. They stand to lose up to $30,000, which could hike seniors’ poverty by up third. It’s a massive hit to the least-well off. It’s meanspirited and it’s wrong. The Conservatives offered zero financial analysis

To the editor: I am writing this letter to object to the diversity festival in Renfrew July 6 and 7, 2012. My family and I have lived in Renfrew for 10 years and I work in Arnprior. We find the best thing about this town is old values still remain. People still mention God, say Merry Christmas, etc., but slowly those wonderful memories are being challenged. I’m 56 years old, grew up in the 1960s to watch our great country go from one founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs to a secular society where there is no longer any moral authority. The ‘60s saw western countries start to unravel, being taken over by liberal thinking. All through high school, from 1969 to 1973, we were constantly told by liberal thinkers about the population explosion. If we could just cut down to one child per family, then came abortion on demand. Next thing you know these great thinkers are telling us we need to immigrate, our population is shrinking. And Pierre Trudeau is considered a Canadian hero, which leads to the purpose of this letter. The diversity festival in itself sounds

to justify the cut because there is none. The OECD, the Parliamentary Budget Officer and other leading experts have all confirmed that Canada does not face a pension crisis. The Conservatives are also using the budget making deep ideological cuts. They are cutting $7.5 million from the Chief Electoral Officer of Canada, $6.7 million from the Auditor General of Canada and $320 million from international development aid. How skewed are these priorities? Take a look at what the government is not cutting: polls, advertising, bigger jails and stealth fighters. Canadians should be asking Stephen Harper and Cheryl Gallant how they can justify such a small-minded Canada. Bob Rae Leader, Liberal Party of Canada

OK, but what bothers a lot of people is where this is heading. It’s the radical fringe groups that work their way in, with the objective of pushing their twisted agenda on all of us. Seriously, what decent family can watch a gay pride parade? Will this event be hijacked by leftwing zealots carrying Israel apartheid pickets? Will they be complaining about our elected conservative government? There is a book out now selling like hotcakes in the Muslim community, showing men how to discipline their wife(s). From pulling ears, to the proper way to hit them with a stick, to other much worse things I don’t care to mention. Where is the diverse crowd, the feminists, the NDP, all other left-wing groups? Why aren’t they screaming at the top of their lungs for justice? Perhaps they’re too busy organizing diverse festivals, etc. I’ll support this diversity festival if they promise one thing. Would they take their show on the road to any country not founded on Judeo Christian beliefs, say Cuba, Iran, North Korea? Jim Geymonat Renfrew

POLICING

Police warn youth about dangers of grass fires EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Twice last week Renfrew OPP officers warned youths about the dangers of starting grass fires. In both cases firefighters were dispatched and extinguished small fires. With the dry spring conditions, fires of any type can quickly spread out of control, caution police. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents are urged to speak to their kids about the dangers of starting fires, no matter how small they may be.â&#x20AC;? Local fire departments have also warned about how dangerous grass fire could be given

the dryness of the bush. The fires were two of 179 calls for service Renfrew OPP responded to last week. They included 12 domestic disputes. One man was charged with theft under $5,000, mischief under $5,000, and uttering threats and assault. Another man was charged with three counts of breach of a recognizance. A woman was charged with aiding or abetting a breach of recognizance. One other domestic dispute investigation is ongoing.

Spring seatbelt campaign starts Saturday EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For the next week, OPP detachments will be focusing on enforcing seatbelt laws. The annual spring seatbelt campaign runs April 14 to 22, with police promoting the safety of the motoring public by ensuring occupants in vehicles are properly secured.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seatbelts save lives and police officers will be strictly enforcing the Highway Traffic Act in regards to people who choose not to buckle up,â&#x20AC;? says an OPP news release. Each spring police services across the province work towards educating the public about the safety benefits of

buckling up seatbelts, and issuing tickets to those who choose to disobey the law. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please do your part to reduce injuries and deaths on roadways associated to lack of seatbelt use and buckle up,â&#x20AC;? urged police. The fine for not wearing a seatbelt is $200.

OPP warn teenagers on dangers of texting EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out there, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it back. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the message Ontario

Provincial Police (OPP) detachments, including Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, are putting out to teens across the province. A mistaken belief that their texted messages and images shared among peers will remain private and secure puts them in real danger of becoming victims of their own words and actions, warn police. Teens frequently engage in relationships with peers through the use of their mobile devices and computers that lead to â&#x20AC;&#x153;self-peer exploitationâ&#x20AC;? (also known as sexting). As a result of misbelieving that they can remain anonymous, they often also engage in this type of behaviour with individuals whom they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know but have only ever met

online. Teens need to become aware that this kind of risky activity has very real dangers associated with it that includes many unintended consequences and permanent long term threats to their identity and their reputations, stress the OPP. Parents, guardians and educators need to learn more about this serious social issue, they add. They should recognize the significance of this problem, discuss it with their teens and monitor their social media activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Children need to get involved and learn how to protect them from permanently damaging their lives.â&#x20AC;? said Insp. Scott Naylor, manager of the OPP Child Sexual Exploitation Unit.

OPP crack down on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;murderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; texts EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The East Region Crime Unit of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is presently investigating numerous mischief complaints occurring across the area. People are receiving a text message on their personal cell phones indicating someone was possibly murdered. Due to the seriousness implications of the text, the receiver rightfully notifies police. To date, all of the messages have been confirmed as hoaxes. These false texts must be

followed up by police to make a factual determination into their authentication and ties up many officers for many hours in determining the source of the text, say police. The OPP warns everyone, that making/initiating a false text such as this is a criminal offence and the creator of the text may be charged with mischief. Anyone receiving such a text that does not know the source and has a concern is asked to contact the OPP or their nearest police agency.

Bicycle safely in town, urge OPP With the beautiful weather more people have come out of hibernation and are enjoying the longer days and the spring activities such as riding bicycles. Police are reminding the public to be cautious and aware of cyclists and share the

road. As well a reminder to cyclists of all ages that it is the law to wear a helmet if you are under the age of 18. Ensure you are visible, bright clothing, lights and reflectors on your bicycle assist motorists in seeing you.

New bill-back TV and telephone for Manor

ENCORE WINNER

Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC news - Wireless Resident Nurse Alert Technology will supply a new system at Bonnechere Manor that incorporates an administration telephone system, resident bill-back telephones, and resident bill-back satellite television. The total cost will be $131,984, plus HST. The successful request for proposal by the Ottawa-based company is also generating savings for the manor. A separate administration phone system would have cost about $75,000, but the new admin and resident telephone system cost $86,784 of the $131,984. That total bill will be taken from reserves of the county-owned long-term-care home. Bill-back revenues will be paid back into reserves until the purchase price has been repaid, possibly within four years. Residents originally paid for telephone and

Arnprior resident Percy Wall has always said ‘yes’ to ENCORE and now he is $100,000 richer because he did so in the March 7 LOTTO 6/49 draw. “When I found out I won, I was happy but calm,” said Wall. “The excitement grew on my drive to the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto.” The 62-year-old father has been playing the lottery for 30 years and it is his first big win. The winning ticket was bought at Ultramar on Madawaska Boulevard in Arnprior.

TV through respective payments to Bell Canada and TV COGECO, but the manor has since bought packages from service providers that allow the manor to bill the residents and still collect a percentage of that revenue, says Bonnechere Manor administrator Shayne Hoelke. “The costs are roughly the same (for residents), maybe a bit less,” said Hoelke. “We’re hoping to generate about $20,000 to $30,000 combined from the pay-back TV and pay-back telephone.” Wireless Resident Alert Technology is expected to have the systems installed by June. The same company is also installing the manor’s new security system. One of the biggest bonuses with the new pay-back systems is that on-site maintenance staff can have TV and telephone immediately installed in new residents’ rooms. Previously, the manor had to wait for an independent provider to do the installation.

Camp something to dance about

Supplying Cinderella’s prom dress, shoes Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle - “It’s nice to see somebody else feel good and feel special on their special day.” The words come from Marissa Broome, who has helped to spearhead the creation of the new not-for-profit business, Valley Cinderella Project, which collects donated prom dresses at several Valley drop-off points, including one in Arnprior. Because Broome, 27, receives government disability payments, the business can’t accept monetary donations for the Valley Cinderella Project’s services. But that’s OK, she says, convinced the big payment is the satisfaction on the faces of girls who find an appropriate dress for their prom, graduation or other special event. That’s what Valley Cinderella Project is all about — providing dresses to those girls who otherwise wouldn’t have one. Several girls recently received their dresses, which are loaned to the girls and returned after they are worn for their special event. There is no charge for the service. With help from the Kinette Club, Mid-Town Cleaners and The Grind in Pembroke as well as media outlets, Valley Cinderella Project volunteers have collected 300 special-occasion dresses since the company was founded last December. One motivation to start the business was Broome’s experience with her own wedding dress. She had one, but never got to wear it. After the dress sat in a closet for seven years, she offered it to a friend who was getting married. The dress fit perfectly, causing Broome to think, “Maybe others have dresses in their closets that could be used for weddings, proms or graduations.” Some donated dresses haven’t met a desired standard for formal occasions, but several of those have still found homes, with schools and drama groups (for dramatic productions) or at thrift stores. Examples of the quality of the dresses can be seen by checking out Broome’s facebook group and page addresses at the Valley Cinderella Project. Drop-off points for donated dresses are Arnprior’s Klics Ice Cream Parlour and Internet Cafe at 128 John St., the Renfrew Recreation Centre, and R&R Fun Travel in Pembroke. For more details about Valley Cinderella Project, call Broome at 613-281-0214.

Hyacinth Chatterton, left, the main organizer of Saturday’s linedancing Atelier, joins Donalda Stevens, a former Camp Lau-ren camper, at a recent linedancing workshop at Photo by Sherry Haaima Arnprior District High School.

This Saturday’s Arnprior Party-atelier at the Nick Smith Centre is a great opportunity to support Camp Lau-ren, which by all accounts has been a valuable resource for local families for many years. The event calls all linedancers to get their dancing boots and shoes ready to come out and support the camp Saturday at the Nick Smith Centre. Donalda Stevens, librarian at Arnprior District High School, says it was always the big rock that campers first saw and that first came to mind when she thought of Camp Lau-ren. A former camper, Stevens’ mother and own children attended the camp and all have fond memories of their experiences. “It was tradition,” says Stevens. “The camp had great outdoor activities and the focus was on being around people.” From crafts and swimming to the rituals of camp meals, simple but always tastier eaten in the outdoors, her memories of Camp Lau-ren hold a special place in her heart. She urges the community to support Camp Lau-ren and Saturday’s event. All levels of dancers invited, from beginners to intermediates. DJ and door prizes. Admission by donation to this year’s summer camp funds. For event reservations, call Hyacinth at 613-623-0976.

ADHS scores above average in Fraser Institute rankings Staff

EMC news - Arnprior District High School ranked above average, at 281 out of 710 Ontario schools, in the latest rankings published by the Fraser Institute. MacKenzie High School of Deep River had the highest marks of Renfrew County high schools with a 7.5 for 168th in the province. Small French school, Jeanne Lajoie of Pembroke, had a 7.4 for 260th place. ADHS polled a 6.6. The Arnprior school’s top score in the past five years is 7.2 and its high finish was 168th. Other Renfrew County school marks were Madawaska Valley of Barry’s Bay 332nd (6.4), RCI 422nd (5.9), Bishop Smith 432nd (5.8), St. Joseph’s 471st (5.5), Opeongo 533rd (5.0) and Fellowes 546th (4.9). The Fraser Institute says Ontario’s students – both at the academic and applied levels - are improving markedly, especially in math. Over the past five years the mark out of four has gone from 2.6 to 2.8. The Report Card on Ontario’s Secondary Schools 2012 rates 718 public, Catholic, and francophone secondary schools across the province based on seven key indicators using data from the annual province-wide tests of literacy and math administered by the Ontario government’s Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO). The Fraser Institute says the rankings help parents determine how their children’s schools are performing compared to others.

Some educators question the relevance of the rankings, saying they don’t take enough variables into account. The report card displays individual school results for the past five years, showing whether schools have improved or fallen behind over time. It also includes key information about each school’s make-up, including parents’ average income, the percentage of ESL students, and the percentage of special needs students. According to the report, 15 of the 20 fastest-improving secondary schools in Ontario have average parental incomes below the provincial average. At one of these schools, special needs students make up more than half of the student population; at another, ESL students account for 48 per cent of total student enrollment. The Fraser Institute maintains that shows academic excellence is possible in every school, regardless of the personal and family circumstances of its student population. The report card also points out that 26.6 per cent of secondary school exams written in 2011 scored below the provincial standard, compared to 30.1 per cent in 2007. Among the top ranking schools in the province is nearby West Carleton Secondary High School in Dunrobin, which placed an impressive second in Ottawa and 15th in the province. Results of the report card are available at compareschoolrankings.org.

SAFETY, SNACKS THANKS TO OPG Ontario Power Generation (OPG) public affairs officer Jennifer Gardiner presents a water safety slide show at the Arnprior youth program’s after-school session at John XXIII April 3.

Staggered bells, lack of volunteers threatens Farms Comes to Town steve.newman@metroland.com

Each year Grade 5 students from Arnprior and across Renfrew County used to gather at the Renfrew Armouries to meet area farm producers and their livestock in a hands-on event known as Farm Comes to Town. “It is a wonderful opportunity for all to come and learn a bit about where their food comes from, and how it gets to the kitchen table,” says Angela Field, chairperson of next week’s Farm Comes to Town. Unfortunately, though, Arnprior students haven’t been attending for the past couple of years. And with schools from other areas following suit, Field suspects this year’s event on April 4 was the last. “I think it’s about 95 per cent sure it’s the last one. It really, really is (that serious),” she said. The negative impact of the new staggered-bells busing system used in most parts of the county is the number one reason for the possible discontinuation, said Field. And a dwindling number of volunteers is the second, adds the chairperson, who is one of the event’s lesser-experienced volunteers. She said it’s frustrating to see how attendance has virtually halved in recent years. This year, participation was just less than 200 elementary school students, with students coming from only Chalk River, Pembroke, Douglas and Renfrew. “We used to draw from Deep River, Petawawa, Arnprior and pretty well the entire county,” said Field, who lives

in Admaston-Bromley. The guided tours once ran in the morning and afternoon for Farm Comes to Town’s commodities (or stations) of dairy, beef, pork, poultry, bees, sheep, and soil and crop. But dwindling participation, says Field, has meant two of the seven commodities are ready to drop out and four

others are lukewarm about continuing. Steve Schultz, who chaired the Farm Comes to Town committee for seven years, up to 2010, is concerned that the event won’t continue. CHANGES NEEDED

“We’re at the point where

we’ve got to make changes,” said the dairy farmer, who’s still one of the show’s volunteers. “The staggered bells has caused us some problems,” he added. One possible suggestion, which he’s heard from school sources, is to change the school section to a Grade 4-

based program. “It’s a great opportunity to meet kids and tell them what we do, but now we have to find a way to make it work.” But even a change of grade won’t help with student participation numbers. The staggered-bells busing system, say both Field and Schultz, means many schools

can no longer get buses to these type of field trips. Asked what might salvage Farm Comes to Town (and other field trips in the area), Field replied, “Maybe (the school boards could) try to put a few more buses on the road, so programs like this don’t have to be shot down.”

Scott Woods to share music of fiddling legends Top-notch fiddler heads up the well-known band coming to the Horton Community Centre April 22 Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC events - Scott Woods will be no stranger to Renfrew County when he returns Sunday, April 22 for the Scott Woods Band performance at 2 p.m. in the Horton Community Centre. The 41-year-old fiddler remembers several visits to the county, including one to Renfrew County as a teenager to compete in a fiddling contest. More seasoned than ever, the Fergus, Ont., fiddler is coming through the area as part of the band’s busy touring schedule. The five-member band will be joined for the 2 p.m. show by good friend and Valley fiddler Terri-Lynn Mahusky, who will play a few tunes. Music runs deep in the Woods family, as Scott now directs the band that has carried various names over the years, following its 1944 founding by Scott’s dad, Merv. They often called themselves The Woods Family, but because they played a lot of big-band music back then, with a lot of saxophone and trombone, they were often referred to as Merv Woods and His Orchestra. Merv is no longer on the music scene. He died in 2003, but Scott’s mother, Carolyn, who joined the band in 1956, will be among five musicians who perform in Horton next month. She also toured for eight years, as pianist with Memories of Don Messer’s Jubilee. Scott was also on that scene, as Messer’s musical director for seven years, until 2006. Scott succeeded Graham Townsend, who’ll be among the phenomenal fiddlers the Scott Woods Band pays tribute to, both in Horton Township and throughout this year. “Every year’s a new theme, a new concept,” said Scott. This year’s theme is Fiddle Legends, as a tip of the musical hat in their two-hour variety show to such icons as Don Messer, Al Cherny, King Ganam, Johnny Mooring, Ward Allen, Chubby Wise and Reg Hill. Hill was a fiddler with Mac Beattie and The Melodiers that grew up in Renfrew County. Wise was an American bluegrass fiddler whom Scott had the privilege to work with in New York in the 1990s, before his death in 1996.

Scott Woods

These days, the Scott Woods Band’s focus is on a lot of oldtime fiddle, country and gospel music, but there will be a little gymnastics, too. As he does at several shows, during one song Scott will liter-

ally flip across the stage while holding his fiddle. Scott, who began studying classical violin at age four, plays several instruments. But his forte is fiddle, with the love of fiddling passed down through six generations of his family. A two-time winner of the Canadian open fiddle contest and two-time Canadian grand masters fiddling champion, Scott and the band’s other members (who come from a pool of more than 15 musicians) says his sister, Kendra Norris, is an important part of the show. “She’s the card. If I tell a joke, she’s the one who makes it funny,” said Scott of his sister, who has also won several Canadian open fiddle class titles. “We have lots of fun. We do some silly things as well.” The band is also true to its roots, stresses Scott, noting music will be played as it was in the day of a particular musician’s piece. “We’re playing music authentic to the period in which it was popular,” said Scott. The band’s other members in Horton will be Scott’s nephew, Ben Norris, and Kyle Waymouth. Now in his early 20s, Ben was five years old when he was named most entertaining fiddler at the 1993 Canadian open fiddle contest in Shelburne, Ont. He plays drums, fiddle, guitar, bass and mandolin. Kyle stepdances in addition to playing drums, fiddle, bass and mandolin. He’s also a member of Powerhouse, a four-time winner of the Canadian open step dancing title, and part of the famous Judy’s School of Dance in Stratford. On the road, Scott Woods Band travels in its home away from home, the silver bus bought six years ago in Nashville. Scott’s also pleased to come back to the Ottawa Valley, which he calls one of the real heartlands of Canadian fiddle music. The high quality and quantity of fiddle players in the Valley is one sign that its musical heritage lives on, he says. During the show, the audience will be treated to a wide variety of songs, including Westphalia Waltz, with a three-part fiddle harmony, as well as Maple Sugar and Orange Blossom Special. The $20 tickets for the afternoon show are available from the Renfrew and Area Chamber of Commerce, at 161 Raglan Street South, or at the door April 22. The band’s show dates include April 20 in Brockville, April 21 in Carleton Place and April 27 in Hamilton.

NATURE

Hole-y Wars have begun between feathered cavity adopters EMC lifestyle – The summer heat wave in March resulted in record early arrival dates for a number of different birds. However, despite the false start to summer, the majority of birds have not yet made an appearance and most seem quite content to keep slowly working their way north from Central and South America. But a number of the birds that are recently back have already started nesting. Many Eastern Bluebirds, Wood Ducks, Tree Swallows, American Kestrels and European Starlings have laid claim to their nest sites and a few have even started laying eggs.

These very different birds - a thrush, a duck, a swallow, a hawk, and, of course, a starling, respectively - all share one trait: they all nest in holes in trees. Of course, none of those birds make their own hole. Other birds do: woodpeckers, Black-capped Chickadees, and Red-breasted Nuthatches excavate their own nest site. The cavity adopters take over either an abandoned hole created by an excavator or one that formed naturally when a branch broke off and decay set in. The problem for cavityadopting birds is that these sites are not very common. The

number of cavities is limited and generally dependent on a good supply of older trees. These, of course, are also not in high abundance due to the continual clearing of trees for housing developments. Thus, the availability of nest sites for cavity users is not nearly as great as it is for birds that build a cup nest in the fork of a tree branch. The need to grab a cavity as early as possible is one reason that cavity adopters either remain here for the winter (as do White-breasted Nuthatches and Eastern Screech-Owls) or arrive in early spring. Great Crested Flycatchers are the only flycatcher we

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way have that nests in tree cavities, and apart from Eastern Phoebes, flycatchers that nest in crevices in rock faces (another limited nest site), they are the first of their group

to return. The competition for cavities is great for these are relatively safe sites that offer better protection from wind and rain. Which is why some species so readily grab manufactured nesting boxes. Tree Swallows generally usurp those structures from bluebirds, but fortunately for those stunning thrushes, a pair of swallows will not tolerate another pair of swallows nesting nearby. Thus, when two bluebird boxes are placed in close proximity to each other, swallows will take over one but evict any other swallow that might try to nest in the other

box, leaving it unoccupied for bluebirds to take over. Often the cavity adopters belong to a family of birds in which they are the only ones that do not build a cup or stick nest in a tree. Bluebirds are the only thrushes that use cavities and kestrels are the only hawks that nest inside a tree. By no coincidence, cavity adopters are among the earliest of their group to arrive back in their nesting area. Which only makes good sense, for the early bird gets the hole!

Needed: girls to play

touch football

EMC sports – With the weather turning warm, it is time to kick off another season of girl’s touch football in West Carleton. And Arnprior girls are welcome to join the fun. The West Carleton tackle football club ventured into the world of touch football two seasons ago, starting in 2010 with one Pee-Wee team and 13 girls. The success of that first season prompted expansion for the 2011 season. The Wolverines entered two teams in the Pee-Wee division with once again encouraging results. In the strong league, the Wolverine teams finished in third and sixth place. With many girls set to move up from the Pee-Wee division (12-13-14-year-olds), the Wolverines have decided to expand once again. For the first time they will field a Bantam team in the 15-16-year-old division. Club president Andy McArdle says the decision was an easy one. “With the success we have had the last two years and a high percentage of our players returning, we felt confident we could recruit enough girls to offer a bantam level.” Teams typically consist of 12 to 15 girls. With expansion and recruitment of players at the forefront of their planning, the Wolverines offered free conditioning sessions after the March Break. Sessions started March 24 and 31, and will continue on Saturdays April 14 and 21 at the Bell Sensplex in Kanata. Times are 11 a.m. to noon.

for 11 goals in the six-game series. “We covered him, but he managed to find ways to score anyway,” said Griese. Robinson was strong enough to maintain position in front of the net and deflect shots close in, he added. When he had someone as accomplished as playoff points leader Nicolas Belleville setting him up, the result was lethal. Griese is optimistic the Packers, while losing some key players including four

overagers and goalie Matt Couvrette, will be strong again next season. Scoring star Taylor Collins and the league’s top defenceman Shane Smith should be back, he noted. The team is holding its season-ending banquet this Friday, April 13 at the Arnprior Curling Club. GATINEAU FALLS BEHIND

Gatineau finds itself in the same situation that Arnprior was in two weeks ago.

The Mustangs blew a 3-1 lead Tuesday at home and lost 5-4 in overtime to Casselman Vikings, champions of the Eastern Ontario Junior B St. Lawrence Division. The win gives Casselman a 3-1 series lead with two of the final three games (if needed) on the Vikings’ ice. After seeing Casselman take the lead with three straight goals Tuesday, Gatineau forced overtime by scoring with only 18 seconds left. However, Viking Kyle

Beachamp-Lalonde completed a hat-trick with a goal at 11:58 of overtime. Casselman won the first game 6-3, with Gatineau victorious at home 6-1 to even the series. In game three, Casselman erased a 3-2 Gatineau lead with three unanswered thirdperiod goals for a 5-3 win. Casselman can wrap up the series tonight (Thursday). Games six and seven if needed are scheduled for Friday and Sunday.

Glofcheskie swings her way to national championships Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC sports - For Grace Glofcheskie, it is easy being green. Or on the green that is. The Arnprior District High School graduate and one-time female athlete of the year is having the best year of her young golfing career. Next up: the national championships in Victoria, B.C. The University of Guelph student has been on the golf team and attending school with the help of a golf scholarship for the past three years. Last fall, the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team made history by placing at the Ontario University Athletic championships, which won them a bid to the national championships. Early this spring, Glofcheskie was selected to be a member of the team that will travel to Victoria for the championships. Born and raised in Arnprior, Glofcheskie said she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much company locally on the competitive scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing up in Arnprior, I was the only competitive female golfer,â&#x20AC;? she said. An avid athlete who played soccer, hockey and other team sports growing up, she said she loves golf for many reasons, but the opportunity for the financial support for school has been amazing.

Grace Glofcheskie, left, is thrilled to be heading to Victoria, B.C., for the national golf championships. Above, with their bronze medals at the Ontario University Athletic championships, from left, are Vanessa Dupuis, Christine Fraser, Glofcheskie, Jessica Keating, and team coach Brandon McLeod. Photos submitted â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of scholarship opportunities,â&#x20AC;? said Glofcheskie, adding she knows of several female golfers who went to the United States on scholarships. With an eventual eye on going to medical school, Glofcheskie is pursuing a bachelor of science and human kinetics. For now, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrapping up this term and looking ahead to B.C. Because the post-secondary golf season usually runs in the fall, practicing and preparing now is not the

norm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year, we decided to kick it up a notch and do some spring training,â&#x20AC;? said Glofcheskie. Training focuses include core strength and flexibility, and visits to local performance and indoor golf centres. FUNDRAISING

There are other very major preparations to be made â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fundraising for the trip, which costs about $1,500 per player.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big investment for us to go,â&#x20AC;? said Glofcheskie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could use all the help I can get.â&#x20AC;? To help the students with fundraising for the trip, the university has set up a fundraising initiative. Visit http://uofg.convio.net/ site/TR?team_id=1350&fr_ id=1080&pg=team Glofcheskie, a member at the Arnprior Golf Club, will soon be returning home and hopes to host a local fundraising event as well. She said she does see youth par-

ticipation in golf growing and more females getting interested in the sport competitively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Me personally, I got into it because my two older brothers were golfers.â&#x20AC;? Glofcheskie said she loves being part of a team and what that brings with it, but she has found a certain satisfaction with a job well done on the golf course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great when you can do well and look back and think â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I did that on my own,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Glofcheskie.

Lifelong love affair with English language begins For a dictionary to be worth anything it has to be used, says Mother EMC lifestyle - Mother said it was a day to remember. Father said it was a day Mother took leave of her senses, and he threw in “a fool and her money are soon parted” as well. It was a phrase he used often. Like the day Mother spent a whole quarter on a long distance phone call to her friend in New York, when a three cent stamp would have done

just as well! The excitement started long before that special day, however. It all began when Mother decided what our family needed was a big dictionary. Just like the one that sat on the corner of Miss Crosby’s desk with the bible. Mother had a continuing love affair with the English language, and she thought every new word we could learn

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

would be like as she called it “a jewel in our crown.” I was never able to figure that one out. Even my older sister Audrey wasn’t sure exactly what Mother meant either, although she was reasonably sure every new word would have a lot to

do with whatever success we would reach when we were all grown up. At any rate Mother decided what our family needed was a big black Webster dictionary. There was an ad in the Philadelphia Enquirer, and it

would cost next to nothing, and be shipped free any place in the world. And so it was up to every one of us, she said, to get the money. Father said we weren’t to count on him. What earthly good was a dictionary when your main concern was getting the wheat planted, the cows fed, the milking done, and any other number of farm chores? Well, his argument was lost on Mother and we five kids. That night there was no sitting around the kitchen table leafing through Eaton’s catalogue. The boys whittling would have

to wait. The job that night was to see how much money we could all come up with. Audrey and I got our hankies out of our wash stand drawer and untied the knot in the corner and were able to come up with .36 cents between us. The brothers after emptying their overall pockets added about .40 cents to the pot. Mother went to the blue sugar bowl in the back-to-thewall cupboard and took down the egg money. See DICTIONARY Page 35

CSI gloves handy even when there’s no crime scene EMC lifestyle - There’s one type of glove that is really useful in the kitchen. It’s the thin latex type, sometimes referred to as CSI gloves. If you’re not familiar with the TV series, CSI stands for Crime Scene Investigation. You can buy these gloves by the boxful at most pharmacies, and you’ll quickly discover how many uses they have around the kitchen. The gloves will keep your hands clean when you’re mixing meatloaf, or shaping meatballs or hamburger patties. If you’re dipping meat, chicken or fish in a liquid such as milk or egg, then in flour or

bread crumbs, or in a barbecue sauce, the latex gloves will really come in handy to keep your hands clean. If you’re mixing or shaping cookie dough, or kneading a sticky biscuit or bread dough, wearing CSI gloves reduces the mess in the kitchen. Slip the gloves off when you have to transfer a baking sheet or pan to the oven, and you won’t be transferring bits of dough to everything you touch. And if you’re interrupted when you’re in the middle of a messy task, you can slip off the gloves, and respond to the interruption, whether it’s the phone ringing or a family

member in need. To avoid cross-contamination, always discard the gloves after handling any raw meat or egg product. If you use the heavier yellow rubber kitchen gloves to wash dishes, you probably find that it’s always the right hand glove that gets a hole in it first. When that happens,

M&M to hold charity barbecue to help find cure for Crohn’s EMC events – Arnprior’s M&M Meat Shop will join 450 others across Canada in holding a charity barbecue May 12 to benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC). M&M Meat Shops’ franchisees, staff and thousands of volunteers from coast-to-coast will be manning grills to mark the 24th anniversary of the Charity BBQ Day. The fundraising goal is $1.5 million. Supporters will receive a hamburger or hot dog, a drink and a bag of chips for a minimum donation of $3. All food and time is donated, so every penny raised goes directly to CCFC Crohn’s and colitis research. For an additional $2, supporters can cool down by purchasing a \M&M Meat Shops Strawberry Shortcake Bar with proceeds donated to CCFC. Canada has among the highest incidence in the world of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis - two similar yet distinct conditions also known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Despite this high incidence, IBD is still veiled in silence and shame. There are more than 200,000 Canadians suffering from IBD. It is a painful and unpredictable disorder. There is no known cause or cure and the number of cases continues to grow. This year, M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day is pleased to have 12-year-old Landon Lafond as a CCFC representative for the event. He understands all too well what it’s like to live with IBD.

“I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease three years ago,” says Landon. “I love to volunteer and have been proud to help raise money for Crohn’s and colitis research by helping out at M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day, as well as participating in CCFC’s Gutsy Walk. M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day is an important way to raise money and awareness for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and hopefully, help kids like me feel better.” From humble beginnings, M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day has grown into CCFC’s largest annual fundraising activity by any single supporter. Over the past 23 years, M&M Meat Shops has raised more than $21.5 million for medical research dedicated to finding a cure for IBD. Meanwhile, throughout April to Sunday, May 13, Canadians can also support IBD research by purchasing and signing a Star either in-store at any M&M Meat Shops or online at ccfc.ca/star. For $2, supporters will receive a Star and a chance to win a $500 M&M Meat Shops gift card; for $3, supporters will receive a Star, an M&M Meat Shops Blossom Pastry and double their chance to win a $500 M&M Meat Shops gift card; and for $5, supporters will receive a Star, a coupon book worth more than $50 in M&M Meat Shops savings and triple their chance to win a $500 M&M Meat Shops gift card.

Mousseau’s entry takes the cake EMC lifestyle - The winner of the Sweet and Sassy cupcake contest was Shelly Mosseau of Arnprior. The baking store/restaurant on John Street in Arnprior that specializes in cupcakes chal-

lenged customers to come up with their own cupcake recipes. Mousseau’s Turtle cupcake was judged the winner. Sweet and Sassy congratulated Mosseau and all those who entered the contest.

instead of throwing out both gloves, keep the left hand glove. Turning the left glove inside out will make it into a glove that fits the right hand. Keep it as a spare for the next time you need to replace a right hand glove. And here’s another tip that you may find useful, particularly if you have a large col-

lection of cookbooks. You may find, as I do, that you remember seeing a recipe, but you can’t recall which cookbook it was in. Consider starting an index of your own for the recipes that you’re most likely to try. Whenever you browse through a cookbook, have a notebook handy. When you come across a recipe that you’d like to try, jot down the name of the recipe and the title of the cookbook in your notebook. Include the page number and any extra comments that will help you remember later what was special about that recipe. Then, when you’re

looking for a particular recipe, you’ll be able to check your own personalized index to find it. This will make it much easier to find the recipe. It also helps to use a Post-It note to mark the page in the cookbook. Jot down the name of the recipe on the Post-It, and stick it on the appropriate page with the recipe name showing above the top of the page. And here’s a hint. Make sure you write on the part of the Post-It that isn’t sticky. This way, you can stick the note to the cookbook page instead of having it loose and likely to fall out of the book.

Dictionary used as much as Eaton’s in Mary’s home Continued from 33

She emptied it out on the oilcloth covered table and sorted the coins ... there were no folding bills ... just a couple quarters, a few dimes and several big brown pennies. It looked like we were a long way off from what the ad was asking for in the Philadelphia Enquirer. I was sure Father was grinning behind the Ottawa Farm Journal from his perch in the rocking chair by the Findlay Oval. Mother didn’t seem to be the least concerned. She filled out the coupon from the paper, wrote C.O.D. on it, put it in an envelope and Audrey was ordered to put it in our mailbox on the way to school the next morning. She said by the time the dictionary arrived, she would have earned the money from selling more eggs, butter, chickens and sticky buns door to door in Renfrew. And so the work began. Everyone, but Father of course, was on a mission. Every penny, every nickle was put in the blue sugar bowl building up for the day the mailman would deliver the big dictionary, that was coming all the way from New York City. Would it ever arrive? Each day coming home from school that was the first thing we asked Mother as we piled in the kitchen door. “ Be patient,” she’d say. But we could tell she was just as anxious as we were.

And then one day, as we were coming in our long lane, there was Mother standing in the open doorway frantically waving her arms in the air. “It’s here ... it’s here.” We knew without asking what it was. And there it was, in all its glory...sitting on a clean white flour bag tea towel on the kitchen table. It was almost as big as the family Bible. Mother wouldn’t let any of us touch it until we had thoroughly washed our hands. Once we all had a good look at it, Mother carried it into the parlour and put it on the twig table. And rules were made on the spot. No one was to lay a finger on it until the hands had been washed. And no turning down a page to mark a place. No pencil marks underlying a word. We vowed to abide by every rule. After all, this was a major expense and it had to be treated with the utmost respect. Mother said if the dictionary was going to be worth anything, it had to be used, and so we were to each find a word every night, write it down, and become familiar with it. The ritual became part of our lives, just like browsing through Eaton’s catalogue, and writing in our diaries. And it opened up a whole new world for us on that backwoods farm deep in the heart of the Ottawa Valley. And so began our life-long love affair with words and the English language.

Doctors launch awareness campaign on dangers of falls to seniors Every 10 minutes in Ontario, at least one person over the age of 65 visits an emergency room because of a fall and the impacts can be devastating. That’s why Ontario’s doctors are launching an information campaign for patients to raise awareness about the risks of falling and how to take steps to prevent falls in the first place.

Braeside Home Furnishings

Unintentional falls are the leading cause of injury among those over 65, making up 59% of emergency department visits and 79% of all hospitalizations for this age group in Ontario. Surprisingly, the most common type of fall among Ontarians over 65 is caused by slipping or tripping on level ground and not falling on stairs or off of furniture.

MPP John Yakabuski’s gas tax bill defeated, again

John Yakabuski

EMC news – The defeat once again of his bill to share provincial gas tax revenues with rural area shows the Liberal government is not interested in fairness, says Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MPP John Yakabuski. On April 5 Yakabuski reintroduced a private members’ bill that would ensure all municipalities share in a portion of the gas tax they pay. His bill would have made all municipalities eligible to receive a rebate from the provincial government.

THE TOWNSHIP OF LANARK HIGHLANDS

The bill would have allocated a gas tax rebate to municipalities without public transportation systems based on population size and total length of highways under their jurisdiction. Despite support from the NDP to have the bill reviewed in committee, the Liberal government “whipped” their caucus to vote unanimously to defeat the bill. In the debates, Yakabuski argued the matter was an issue of fundamental fairness. “If you live in a rural community,

“We’re suggesting that you learn how to manage your budget: $126 billion, and you haven’t got a nickel for those communities that don’t have a public transportation system? That shows a fundamental lack of respect for rural Ontario” Yakabuski said. By contrast, the federal government acknowledges rural communities’ contributions to the gas tax and provides rebates to all municipalities for maintaining local roads, bridges and highways.

MUNICIPAL MATTERS

you can’t go anywhere without getting into a vehicle and driving somewhere, yet you pay that tax every time you fill up that tank,” he said. Yakabuski noted the government’s total spending for the next fiscal year will be $126 billion. Despite this record-breaking budget and billions of dollars “wasted in scandal after scandal,” the McGuinty government maintains that municipalities that do not have public transportation systems do not deserve any rebate at all, he said.

Scouts urge people to do good turns next week

One good deed can make someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day. Imagine the impact 100,000 good turns could have. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the premise Scouts Canada members are acting on as part of a national movement to do good turns across Canada during Good Turn Week, April 14-22. Local Scouts are challenging members of our community to also do a good turn for a friend, family member, neighbour or fellow citizen. Doing a good turn is a practice rooted in the values of all Scouting youth, who are taught to always help

others. During next week, Scouts encourage people to â&#x20AC;&#x153;pay it forward,â&#x20AC;? creating a cycle of goodwill that will spread throughout communities across Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Turn Week helps inspire every Scout to do something great and calls upon Canadians outside the Scouting Movement to also deliver a simple act of kindness on behalf of someone else,â&#x20AC;? said Dylan Reinhart, National Youth Commissioner for Scouts Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really not difficult to do and our goal is simple: to foster a stronger sense of community and

friendship in Canada through consideration for and assistance of others.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely truth in the saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is better to give than receive,â&#x20AC;? as studies show the benefits of a good turn extend beyond the recipient. A recent study conducted by York University in Toronto found people who did good turns saw a marked increase in their happiness and self-esteem. From volunteering to walk a neighbour or friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog to picking up groceries for an elderly neighbour, the possibilities are endless.

Seniors have lots to offer, will thrive with proper support

EMC news - Seniors are an important and often overlooked segment of society, says Barbara Heise, of Arnprior. The 77-year-old mother and grandmother says people 65 and older have much to contribute to the community. “We have a lot to offer,” says Heise. Active and still living in her home with her husband of 58 years, Heise says a big part of her success is having rolled with the punches. “Things change and you have to cope with it. It’s how you work with it. If you’re un-

Faces of Diversity Diversity means opening up your hearts and minds, says Barbara Heise of Arnprior. changeable that’s not going to work,” she says. Diversity means opening up your hearts and minds to others from all walks of life, says Heise. She admits she once held her own prejudices, but things have changed and she encourages others to open up their hearts and minds as well. She has drawn on her spirituality for strength over the years and keeps something in mind when it comes to understanding others.

“Judge not lest you be judged,” says Heise. She said many people live in the past and it’s important to look ahead and not behind. It’s hard for some seniors to understand youth today – especially when times were so different years ago. “Yeah, it was rough times, yeah, we had it bad, but we got through it,” says Heise. It’s important for seniors, and indeed everyone, says Heise, to not just sit down and give up, even when the chips are down. “You know what you have to do, you have to fight,” she says. With the proper support and people in place, the situation for local seniors could begin improving immediately. “There’s one more job for me to do and I think that’s for

seniors,” says Heise. She encourages everyone, her fellow seniors in particular, to come out on July 7 and support the Diversity Festival. The Festival kicks off Friday, July 6, with Dragon’s Breath, a theatrical performance at 7 p.m. at Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church and the festival is Saturday, July 7, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Renfrew’s Low Square. Dragon’s Breath closes the event with another showing 4-6 p.m. Dragon’s Breath premieres June 30 at 7 p.m. in Almonte at the Old Town Hall Auditorium.

Dragonboating Chest Nuts to hold spring tea EMC events - The Prior Chest Nuts are holding a spring tea Saturday, April 28. The Arnprior dragonboat team will hold the fundraiser from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at St John Chrysostom Parish Hall on Albert Street in Arnprior. The Chest Nuts have been busy all winter exercising and getting in shape for the upcoming season.

The team is comprised of breast cancer survivors from the Arnprior area. The dragonboat team was formed in 2010 and this will be its third season on the water. Since Christmas members have been ‘pool paddling’ and exercising in the pool at the Nick Smith Centre. That will continue until the end of April. Then the

Chest Nuts will move out on White Lake, Monday and Wednesday evenings paddling their beloved boat ‘Kahlua’. The tea has been planned to help the group meet its ongoing expenses. There will be lots of delicious desserts and refreshments as well as entertainment and a silent auction, promises crew member Susan Reynolds.

You had a smile for everyone, You had a heart of gold, You left us with the sweetest memories, The world has ever known.

I cried when you passed away, I still cry today, Although I loved you dearly, I couldn’t make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Loving hands at rest, God broke my heart to prove to me, He only takes the best.

RIOPELLE, Joan In loving memory of a dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Joan Riopelle.

Thank you for all the beautiful memories, For touching our lives in so many ways. We miss you.

We think of you in silence, We often speak your name, What would we give to hear your voice, And see your face again.

Luv you, Dad, Colin and Nana In loving memory of a Dear Son & Stepson Kenneth John Taylor Dec 1954 - April 16/2011 I dream of you, dear loved son, And see your smiling face, And know that you are happy In our Father’s chosen place.

God saw you getting tired, A cure not meant to be, So he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come with me.” With tearful eyes we watched you And saw you fade away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Your tender hands at rest, God took you home to prove to us, He only takes the best.

CARD OF THANKS

Thank You We would like to thank our family and friends for their kindnesses and support at the passing of Lloyd Turcotte. All the prayers, flowers, donations, food and expressions of sympathy were greatly appreciated.

PRINCE, Frank In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather who passed away April 5, 2007. In loving memory of my dear husband Ernie who passed away on April 16, 2007.

Alone, but never quite alone, But sometimes in the silence, I imagine he is there, My companion for so many years, No longer here with me, And yet in some mysterious way, He keeps me company.

It is sad to walk the road alone, Instead of side by side. But to all, there comes a moment, When the ways of life divide, You gave us years of happiness, Then came sorrow and tears But you left us beautiful memories, We will treasure through the years. Sadly missed, Love Beatrice and family

Forever in our hearts, John, Angie, Tyler, Andrea and Hanna

April 8, 1941 – April 12, 2009 We took our vows together, Said “Till death do us part” But when God came and took your hand My whole world fell apart No one knows the heartache, I try so hard to hide. Only God knows how many times, I’ve broken down and cried, When I look back upon our lives, One of the things that makes me glad, Is that you chose me to share with you, The precious years we had.

You’re not forgotten, Father dear, Nor ever shall you be; As long as life and memory last, I shall remember thee.

A special thank you to all the doctors, nurses, and staff at Renfrew Victoria Hospital, Hospice Renfrew, and Caressant Care (Cobden) Retirement Home for their compassionate and excellent care. We are also grateful to Wayne Heubner for his help in the final arrangements, to Father Siroski for the funeral service, and the C.W.L. for the luncheon afterwards.

Love and missed, Doris, Children and Grandchildren.

The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, We do it every day. But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. We hold you tightly, Within our hearts, And there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But it will never be the same. For those who still have their dads Treat him with tender care. You will never know the emptiness As when you turn and he is not there.

Nominations open for Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst roads Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC news - Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Worst Roads Campaign is back on the roads after an 18-month hiatus. Korey Kennedy, manager of public and government affairs for CAA North and East Ontario, has been visiting eastern Ontario communities to talk about the worst-roads campaign that previously featured a top-20 list of worst roads. Once a late-summer campaign, now it takes place in the spring, with hopes of heightening attention on roads that may be in their worst state following the spring thaw. The campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new features include a new top-10 list, to replace the top-20 list, and Google maps that allow voters to view the section of road they might wish to identify with their vote. Three eastern Ontario roads made the 2010 list. Cecelia Street in Pembroke was 13th while Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Riverside Drive and Carling Avenue were 14th and 20th respectively. Heading the list were Pelican Falls Roads of Sioux Lookout, runner-up Vermillion Lake Road of Greater Sudbury and third-place Lawrence Avenue of Toronto. Other

Sensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Karlsson at forefront of Norris debate By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enjoyed a front-row seat during this season for the ages. And Senators goaltender Craig Anderson minces no words when he talks about the massive impact Erik Karlssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many talents â&#x20AC;&#x201D; fully unleashed in a system that emphasizes speed above all else â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have had during Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprising run to a berth in the Stanley Cup playoffs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been outstanding for us,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said of a blueliner who has emerged as a serious contender for the James Norris Trophy, awarded annually to the National Hockey Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top defenceman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the ice, he makes things happen.â&#x20AC;? No defenceman in the league owns a more impressive set of statistics than the 21-year-old Swede, a ďŹ rst-round pick by the Senators (15th overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Heading into the ďŹ nal two games of the Senatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season, his 77 points (19 goals, 58 assists) were tops among all NHL blueliners and it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even a race â&#x20AC;&#x201D; next in line, both with 52 as of a week ago, were Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins and Brian Campbell of the Florida Panthers. Only three other defencemen in league

Senators defenceman Erik Karlsson led all NHL blueliners in scoring by a wide margin. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the reasons heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a top contender for the Norris Trophy as the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top defencemen (Photo by Eliot J. Schechter/NHLI via Getty Images)

history have held a margin of at least 20 points over their nearest pursuer in a given season. All of them â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bobby Orr, Paul Coffey and Denis Potvin â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are Hockey Hall of Famers. Through play last Wednesday, you also would have found Karlssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name atop the leaderboard among NHL blueliners in shots (252),

even-strength points (49), goals (16) and assists (33). He also rates second in power-play points (28) and ďŹ ve of his goals have been game winners. Proving that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all offence, the native of Landsbro, Sweden, tops all league blueliners in takeaways (64). But Karlssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value to the Senators goes way

Senatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first-round playoff tickets now on sale Believe it, Ottawa. Your Senators are back in the Stanley Cup playoffs. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better place to be than Scotiabank Place to catch all the excitement.

They are opening the post-season on the road, with Games 3, 4 and a potential Game 6 all slated to be played at Scotiabank Place. Senators season-seat owners who have renewed their seats for 2012-13 (in addition to any new season-seat purchasers) will be eligible to purchase playoff tickets at the same cost

beyond the numbers. Anderson, for one, will tell you there is no defenceman in the NHL who means more to his team in terms of its success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be where we are right now without him,â&#x20AC;? said Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hands down, he is one of the main reasons why we sit where we sit (in a playoff position). I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say that for any other defenceman in the league right now, that their team is so dependent on one player. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not that we rely on just one player but in the grand scheme of things, he is our Sidney Crosby or whatever you want to call him for our team.â&#x20AC;? Karlsson hears this kind of praise and is clearly ďŹ&#x201A;attered by it all. But with a straight face, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you that there is only one statistic he concerns himself with in every game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the two points the Senators get for a win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy

that people appreciate what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing and liking what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing out on the ice,â&#x20AC;? said Karlsson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I like that people are noticing this team is a good team ... I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been playing pretty consistently all year long.â&#x20AC;? He has also proven to be a perfect ďŹ t for the style of play head coach Paul MacLean has gotten his team to embrace since the start of his ďŹ rst season behind the Ottawa bench. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going fast,â&#x20AC;? as MacLean likes to put it, ďŹ ts right into Karlssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wheelhouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way the game is played now, you have to have a lot of speed,â&#x20AC;? said Karlsson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But you also have to have a lot of creativity, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be able to create opportunities for yourself. All the teams (in the NHL) play pretty solid defence and (MacLean) came in with that philosophy, that we needed to generate a lot of speed and create a lot of opportunities and not just sit back and hope the other team makes mistakes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working pretty well for us.â&#x20AC;? Lest you think Karlsson is all about offence, Anderson points toward his plusminus rating, which stood at +19 with two games to go â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a huge jump from the -30 he sported a year ago. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s particularly impressive given that the Senatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goal differential as a team is currently +13. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With Karl, look at his plus-minus,â&#x20AC;? said Anderson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s around +20 and Chara is around +35 and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the best team in the league for goal differential. And we have a +13 differential as a team and (Karlsson) is about +20. Right there, that shows you heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a competitor both offensively and defensively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in his game is that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a two-way player. If he makes a mistake, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the ďŹ rst guy back and he makes a big play defensively.â&#x20AC;? R0011347004_0412

Missing dog seen near golf course STAFF

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Maxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has been missing since Jan. 24. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the area of the Madawaska Golf Course.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There has been two possible sightings of an unusual dog that has gone missing in West Carleton. Maxwell, a two-year-old red male fox lab, was rescued from an unhealthy environment in Kentucky, and placed in a foster home by Ottawa-based Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue. However, he ran away from his foster home in the area of Upper Dwyer Hill and Old Almonte roads Jan. 24. He has been on the run since. Along with being scared, the dog is also not familiar with cold weather, having come from the southern United States. Since 2005, Hopeful Hearts, founded by Roz Phelps, has rescued dogs of all sizes, ages and conditions but was started

to primarily to rescue senior and special needs dogs. A very shy and timid dog, Maxwell will not come if called and will not respond to loud noise, said Phelps. He has been seen coming out of the bush and on rural roads in West Carleton and in the last two weeks Phelps heard from two people who thought they saw the dog on the golf course off County Road 29 on the outskirts of Arnprior. Maxwell has a scar on the right side of his face. He has lost his collar. Any member of the public who sees â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Maxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; should contact Phelps at 613-2860009, Susan at 613-836-4729 or Diane at 613-601-3011 immediately. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do not call him, approach him or try to catch him,â&#x20AC;? advises Phelps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very scared.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please throw any kind of food out to keep him in the area and take a picture if possible.â&#x20AC;? He probably will be frightened, confused and hungry, she said, adding he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t respond to his name and gets spooked by loud noises. Phelps also asks area residents to check inside or under their building structures in case he is hiding or resting there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have already found Max and been giving him shelter and food, please let us know so we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to keep worrying about him and searching,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue would be thrilled to know if a kind person is already providing this foster dog with a loving home.â&#x20AC;? There is a reward being offered for information leading to his discovery.

Artist with Arnprior ties shows love for city in exhibit Kristy Strauss kristy.strauss@metroland.com

EMC entertainment - While Megan Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy grew up in Fitzroy Harbour and went to school in Arnprior, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always had a love for the city. She remembers visiting Ottawa as a child, which seemed like the big city to her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always found cities exciting,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember driving into Ottawa when I was little and thinking, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Holy cow â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so cool with the lights and all the buildings.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy has taken her love of the city and of painting cityscapes to the Orange Art Gallery starting April 5 in a solo exhibition called Stepping into Paris. Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy said she never thought of being an artist for a living, but she said she always enjoyed art classes when she was in school. When she took time off work, she dedicated her time to painting and began experimenting with different styles. She describes her cityscapes as modern, with â&#x20AC;&#x153;cleanliness.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re newer, modern, and kind of funky,â&#x20AC;? said Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy, who will often go right to the city she features in her work to take photographs before she paints. Some of her works include Montreal, Havana, Barcelona and this time, Paris. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want people to think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a pho-

tograph,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want people to feel the city. I like to go to a city, walk around and experience it. When people come to the show I want them to feel like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in Paris.â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy said she tries to incorporate aspects of the city sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s painting like its design and architecture, but also likes to include the trees and the people. If she created a piece of art that included a landscape, she said she would want it to have a modern twist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really go for the animal paintings or the landscape paintings unless itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done in a really modern way,â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy said. She also has work displayed at Canvas Gallery in Toronto and said she recently saw her work on a television home repair show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw a couple of my paintings in (the renovated house),â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy said with a smile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just watching and there they were, the two of them on the wall.â&#x20AC;? While painting had always been a hobby up until a year and a half ago, she said never thought it was a hobby she could make a living off of. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m focusing on it and now and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue to do that,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten a lot of positive feedback from people. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sold a lot, so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably doing well.â&#x20AC;?
