Eyeing growth McNab-Braeside township gathers economic development input Sherry Haaima email@example.com
Junior B Packers honour top performers. â€“ Page 24
Musical stars shine in Arnprior. â€“ Page 31
News â€“ For developers, the Township of McNab-Braeside is not an easy place to get things done. Municipal officials want to change that. On April 23, council hosted a whoâ€™s who of local developers, realtors, concerned citizens and other interested individuals in the hopes of identifying the barriers to economic development in the municipality. The meeting was facilitated by Alastair Baird of Renfrew Countyâ€™s economic development team. â€œMcNab-Braeside is full of opportunities,â€? said Mayor Mary Campbell. â€œI encounter people all the time with good ideas. We have all sorts of things floating in the township and it never comes together. Today is a day where it all comes together,
hopefully.â€? Baird discussed the townshipâ€™s strengths and weaknesses and identified resources and existing economic development initiatives. Proximity to Ottawa and Highway 17, natural gas service, local and international airports, tech sector, existing industrial park, communications, waterways and clean land are among the strengths, he said. Counted among the weaknesses are no municipal water/sewer connections. Opportunities exist in industry, residential, resort, agritourism, horses and crops. Empty buildings that can be moved into immediately or modified and occupied within a reasonable time frame are very attractive to developers, as are shovel-ready lots, said Baird. See TOWNSHIP Page 3
Hearty sum Arnprior District High School and community partners raised just over $12,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation by riding the â€˜Big Bike for Heartâ€™ Monday. The Arnprior ride was hosted for the first time at ADHS, with staff and five teams of students - including Kennedee Smith in the front seat above - raising $7,437. â€œWe were thrilled with our students who represented our school in honour of a worthy cause,â€? said organizer Sarah Spratt.
Town of Arnprior prepares to sell off surplus lands Derek Dunn firstname.lastname@example.org
How ready are you for retirement? Part one in series. â€“ Pages 34-35
News â€“ Arnprior is preparing to stick For Sale signs on no less than seven small municipal properties, including one notorious for attracting criminal behaviour. Town planner Robin Smith presented a â€˜Sale of Surplus Building Lotsâ€™
report to council at its April 28 regular meeting. â€œThe Town of Arnprior owns a significant number of vacant properties such as the former railway bed, unopened road allowances, blocks of land dedicated to the town for various uses (i.e. storm water ponds), and parkland, etc.,â€? reads the report. â€œThe town may wish to dispose of
See PROPERTIES Page 5

No dollar figures were mentioned, but the current assessed value for all properties being considered is a little over $358,000. Among the properties on the list â€“ but singled out because an abutting landowner asked to buy it â€“ is along Edward and McLachlin streets.
!" # $ % & $
properties that are of little value to ratepayers but may have value to the adjacent property owner or be potential building lots.â€? None of the properties will be given away; all will be sold at fair market value. But if private owners build on the largely single residential lots, it will generate tax revenue for the town.

the Provincial Policy Statement will further impact development, said Mayor Campbell. â€œChanges to the PPS are going to impact many of you,â€? said Campbell. â€œWe will be having seminars and workshops.â€? She urged the audience to be sure to attend those events. Renfrew County is now included in eco region 6 â€“ mixed woodland plains, said Campbell, which comes up through the township roughly in line with Highway 17. From the highway towards Burnstown is Precambrian shield, she added. â€œWeâ€™re not just protecting agricultural land anymore, weâ€™re now protecting the trees,â€? she said. â€œThe province is going to force us to build abutting settlement areas,â€? she said.

Valley woman dies from injuries Peter Clark email@example.com
News - A woman has died as a result of her injuries following a two-vehicle accident between a car and tractor trailer just outside Renfrew on Highway 17.
The collision occurred west of the Bruce Street intersection about 1:15 p.m. last Thursday, April 24. OPP report that Lynn Lubitz, 48, of Renfrew was at the wheel of a four-door Mazda, which was westbound on Highway 17.
Her car crossed the centre line and struck the eastbound tractor trailer, Renfrew OPP said. A fire ensued, scorching the truck and burning grass in a field next to the highway. The Renfrew Fire Department extricated Lubitz from the
car while Horton firefighters got the grass fire under control and remained on the scene to hose down the tractor trailer. Lubitz was taken to the Ottawa Hospital trauma centre. The male driver of the transport was not injured. The highway was closed from Bruce Street to Storyland Road as police investigated. No charges will be laid.
OPP report three vehicles belonging to Canada Post in Arnprior were damaged over the weekend of April 18-20. The tail-light covers were removed or broken from each vehicle parking in their parking lot over the Easter weekend. Anyone with information is asked to contact OPP Const. Tamara Dube at 613-623-3131. Damage was done to a barrier and gas pump at the Antrim Truck Stop on Friday, April 18 shortly after midnight. Police are reviewing surveillance at the store and the investigation is continuing. OPP warn that thefts from vehicles are continuing in Arnprior and Renfrew. Stolen property includes cash, Canadian Tire money, licence plates, and binoculars. â€œPlease remember to lock your vehicle at all times when not in use,â€? urge OPP. â€œThieves are looking for an easy target and if your vehicle is locked and nothing of value is visible they will move on. Lock it or lose it.â€?

Busy season ahead for public works Derek Dunn firstname.lastname@example.org
News â€“ A lengthy list of to-do jobs for public works workers was presented to Arnprior council Monday, but afterward one elected ofďŹ cial asked about other ďŹ les. Public works director Guy Bourgon has plenty of projects to oversee this summer, according to chief administrative ofďŹ cial Michael Wildman. That prompted a report at the April 28 council meeting titled â€˜2014 Public Works Departmental Activitiesâ€™. Twenty ďŹ les were discussed including: â€˘ Water tower â€“ upgrades to the tower and the cover for a pipe crossing the Madawaska River; â€˘ Repaving â€“ roads for this summer include Charles, Isabella, Elizabeth, Victoria, William and Staye Court; Second Avenue,
along with John, Elgin, and McGonigal are being prepared for future work; â€˘ Asbestos management plan â€“ an investigation of all town-owned occupied buildings; â€˘ Water and wastewater â€“ monitoring strategic locations in the sanitary sewage system; the Havey Street watermain replacement is being planned; â€˘ Stormwater â€“ a study of the entire system, and plans for future sewer separation of combined sewer areas; â€˘ Sidewalks â€“ the town got a â€œvery goodâ€? price on the work, with work ďŹ nished by the second quarter; Other projects include tree cuttings to stave off Emerald Ash Borer, Baskin Drive urbanization, carpet and boiler replacements at the museum, and upcoming plans at the landďŹ ll site.

News - More people will soon be able to enjoy one of McNab-Braesideâ€™s treasured features - Waba Cottage Museum and Gardens. The township received $50,000 from the federal Human Resources and Skills Development OfďŹ ce for Disability Issues-Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF). The money will pay for accessibility upgrades at the White Lake site, including handicap ramps, landings and exterior doors on the heritage buildings (the Staye building, Waba church, the Hill building, the McNab School building and the main building).
The former CN land is heavily treed and reputed for harbouring drug users. It is often littered with drug paraphernalia. Three police cruisers responded there to a recent security-surveillance violation incident; and a nearby home invasion three years ago ended in the invaderâ€™s death. â€œThe real issue there is splitting and selling to close it in and clean it up,â€? Reeve Walter Stack said. Allan Drive has passive parkland behind the mall and ravine. Itâ€™s unknown how secure the slope is for building purposes. Fairview Crescent is also a passive park behind the Nick Smith Centre. It is largely treed with a curved lot on the crescent, abutted by homes. It could
be converted to two single residential lots. Mayor David Reid suggested some trees remain to shield homeowners from the recreation centre. â€œIt has to be compatible with neighbouring houses,â€? Reid said. â€œItâ€™s important to add that this is about repurposing green space, not reducing it. Itâ€™s using it to enhance other green spaces.â€? Vancourtland Street North has former CN land on the west and south sides. It is currently a passive recreation trail. Norma Street South has former CN land. It is unusually shaped, so a deal might be worked out with a neighbour to make it more modular and sellable. Second Avenue, abutting Sheel Windows, is the sixth parcel.
A piece of land staff suggests the town keeping for now is a mixed use commercial former CN land on MacDonald Street North. Council who spoke up agreed the property could go in the future, but that commercial land in downtown isnâ€™t popular in most jurisdictions. Reid and Stack told staff they didnâ€™t want to see the properties sold â€œas is.â€? They agreed that preparing them with proper zoning in place can be done more cheaply in-house and offers potential buyers a ďŹ nished product. Coun. Lynn Grinstead said she liked hearing staffâ€™s suggestion that Habitat For Humanity might show an interest. Smith was recently talking with the non-proďŹ t and said it still wants to build a house in town.

The washroom in the Staye Building will also be updated to become handicap-accessible. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant announced the grant during a April 23 visit to the township ofďŹ ce. Mayor Mary Campbell expressed thanks. â€œThis will open it up to our aging population - a greater portion of the population is going to have access,â€? said Campbell. Waba Cottage Museum and Gardens is open Wednesday to Sunday 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Victoria Day weekend to Thanksgiving weekend. The museum hosts the McNab Days Scottish Festival and numerous weddings throughout the summer season.

Searching for answers Local woman helps trace biological families Jessica Cunha email@example.com
News - While growing up, Lori McGrath would walk down the street, wondering if the women she saw could be her biological mother. Born in Barrie, she was raised 20 minutes away in Brantford, Ont. by the couple that adopted her. When she reached adulthood, she decided to start searching for her birth mother. She entered a public library and 10 minutes later, walked away with her biological mother’s name. “Through finding my own birth mom in a matter of 10 minutes at a public library, I thought, well this is cool,” said McGrath. Now, 20 years later, she continues to help others find their biological parents and children through her business,
Search Trace Locate. “I’ve been helping other adopted people find their birth parents through genealogy,” said McGrath, who lives and runs her business out of Arnprior. McGrath will be one of a number of “human books” available this weekend (May 3 and 4) at the Pakenham library. All five libraries in Larnark County – the Perth Union Library, Smiths Falls Library, Carleton Place Library, Mississippi Mills Library (both Almonte and Pakenham branches) and Lanark Highlands Library – will take part in the event.
People will have the opportunity to check out a human book and learn about that person’s life. McGrath will be at the Pakenham library on Saturday, May 3. McGrath estimates she’s helped more than 3,000 people reunite with biological relatives, including her husband Sean. Finding Sean’s family took much longer than Lori’s – 10 years before they were able to track down his birth mother through the Children’s Aid Society in Newfoundland. “We had to find out if we were related at all. That’s a scary thought,” said Lori. “It’s a scary thought going out into the world and all these secrets were kept. You never know if you’re dating your brother or sister or cousin or whatever. It makes it very tough. “Luckily we weren’t related.” MOTHER-SON REUNION
Holly Francis was reunited with her son almost a year ago. She saw Lori at a community event and stopped by

Sean McGrath poses with his birth family after 10 years of searching. her booth. “I was curious about what she did and what the chances were of me finding him,” said Francis, who lives in Carleton Place. She had previously contacted the Children’s Aid Society and left her contact information there in the event her son looked for her. “I gave her the info that I had, and she went with that,” said Francis. It turned out her son was located in Ottawa, in the west end where Francis grew up. Mother and son sent letters back and forth, spoke on the phone, and then set up an in person meet. “We finally got together,” said Francis. “For me, (it was) kind of unreal and wonderful. I’ve always been told that finding your son, adopted boys don’t often look for their mother. I didn’t think I would ever meet him.” Now it’s been almost a year and the two are still in contact with each other. “I think what Lori’s doing is very effective,” said Francis. “I found him.” ANSWERS FOUND

260 Elgin St. W, Arnprior **NOT DOWNTOWN** (Elgin St. –between Ida & Vancourtland)
Jennifer Renauld grew up in a single parent household. She had never met her father and her mother didn’t talk about him. After her mother passed away, she decided to begin looking for her father. “I have always been wondering forever,” said Renauld, who lives in Pembroke. “Whatever happened to my father?” She ran across Lori at a craft show in Arnprior. They began talking about their experiences.
“I gave her all the information I knew, which wasn’t a lot,” said Renauld. “Within three days she had my answers for me.”
For me, it’s the drive of wanting every person who wants that answer, where do I come from? LORI MCGRATH
Lori found Renauld’s father, who had passed away and was buried in the United States. He had remarried and had other children. Through the connection, Renauld found four half brothers and a half sister. “We don’t see each other but I chat with one of them on Facebook. It was odd his reaction at first when I told him I was looking for our dad. His reaction at first was, ‘Why would you bother? He never did anything for us,’” said Renauld. “For me it was a closure thing. If he was living I probably wouldn’t have gone to meet him. It was more about learning his lifestyle. Lori was able to provide that closure for me.” DRIVEN TO SUCCEED
Although Lori has helped numerous people find relatives, not every case has a happy ending. “I’ve had cases where the birth mothers turned me down flat,” she said. “I’ve also had
it where adoptees who said ‘I like my life the way it is now, I don’t want to know this woman.’” Only four provinces in Canada – Ontario, Newfoundland, Alberta and British Columbia – have open legislation when it comes to looking for biological children or mothers. Birth fathers, because they are often left off the birth certificate, have a harder time, said Lori. “Birth fathers got the biggest shaft of all as far as I’m concerned,” she said. “It’s much harder for the birth father to prove he’s the actual father, unless the child is found.” Siblings of adopted children also have no recourse if the birth mother is dead, she said. Lori uses a mix of systems to help locate the people she’s asked to find, such as online genealogy tools and social media sites, libraries, funeral homes, cemeteries, phone directories and national archives. “Anything I can get my hands on that has genealogy attached to it, I try to read it,” she said. And though it can be difficult, the successful cases far outweigh the negative ones. “For me, it’s the drive of wanting every person who wants that answer, where do I come from?” said Lori. “The feeling when somebody comes back and says, ‘I just spoke to so and so for the first time, how can I think you?’ I go, you just did.” For more information, visit searchtracelocate.com, email searchtracelocate@gmail. com or call 613-778-8225.

Valley family pulls together after mother’s death Steve Newman
JOHN KASTNER NFB/JSKASTNER PRODUCTIONS
mentaries, particularly his last two on mental illness, are also part of public education and the need for the public to understand that people such as Michael Stewart aren’t demons and monsters, but mentally-ill people who need medical assistance, love and understanding. Dempsey’s feature demonstrates that Stewart is getting all of that support in spades. When Dempsey began work on the story earlier this year she saw the story as one about forgiveness, when she came to see that it was more about understanding. “What struck me is that the Stewarts are like many families we all know, except they had this terrible thing happen to them,” she told The Chronicle-Guide. After he covered the 2013 trial in which Richard Kachkar was declared not criminally responsible for killing a Toronto police ofﬁcer, Dempsey says he found public often fails to understand what ‘not criminally responsible’ entails. Too often, she says, the public sees it simply as a pass to get out of jail free.
THE TOWNSHIP OF LANARK HIGHLANDS
Michael Stewart shares a recent meal in Renfrew with his sister, Rebecca, and his dad, David. When her story on the Stewarts came out, she says she received the most response ever to one of her stories about 100 emails and tremendously positive feedback. Now, she says the Stewarts have somehow been able to move forward with their lives. “I’m glad they told it (their story),” says Dempsey. “I’m glad they told it to me. I feel privileged to tell the story in print.” For his most recent documentaries, Kastner was given unprecedented access to a forensic health institute … for three and a half years. The time, says Kastner, reinforced his experience that patients suffering from mental illness have too often been demonized by the media and the public. He says he feels fortunate if can help bring the public to better understand these people. “I’m interested in people who are trying to climb out of their dark pit,” says Kastner. “I’m interested in people who are
trying to ﬁx themselves, not those who are career criminals.” The documentary, Out of Mind, Out of Sight, also evolved after Michael Stewart twice dropped out of the ﬁlming in 2011. But he agreed to return, after adjusting to new medication. “He’s still very fragile, but he has come a long way,” says Kastner. Kastner’s documentary, which was scheduled to premier at Hot Docs fes-

News - What Michael Did, a lengthy feature story in the Toronto Star, hit the streets April 19 and followed up with its online version April 22. The story tells how the Stewart family in Renfrew has struggled, survived and supported each other after Michael, in July 2002 at the age of 23, killed his well-known mother, June, while in a psychotic state. Michael is Renfrew native Michael Stewart, who, along with family members, is the focus of reporter Amy Dempsey’s lengthy feature. Dempsey’s story developed after viewing Toronto ﬁlmmaker John Kastner’s documentary on four patients at the Brockville Mental Health Centre. Some of the footage in Out of Mind, Out of Sight: Inside the Brockville Psych, is also shot in Renfrew County, but outside Renfrew. The four patients are Stewart, a schizophrenic patient; Sal Beninato, who nearly killed his mother; patient Justine, who has borderline personality disorder; and Carole Seguin, who suffers from borderline personality disorder and schizophrenia. The previous documentary by Kastner, who has won four Emmy Awards, was NCR: Not Criminally Responsible. The documentary tells the story of forensic patient Sean Clifton, who nearly killed Julie Bouvier, a complete stranger, after stabbing her six times in a Walmart parking lot 15 years ago, and how her family came to forgive the Cornwall man. As Dempsey’s feature indicates, the Cliftons, like the Stewarts, have come to a greater understanding of mental illness. Kastner points out, in talking to The Chronicle-Guide, that his docu-

Internet no longer a luxury Many of us have the Internet in our pocket; an instant connection to news, email and, during an emergency, information that can even save lives. For others, the Internet is a distant concept. And not just in Third World countries â€“ here in the Ottawa Valley too. While there has been a concerted effort to spread high-speed Internet accessibility into all corners of the Upper Ottawa Valley, not everyone is connected. And itâ€™s not only because of a lack of service. For some the cost of an Internet connection is more than some they can afford. That puts them in a significant and growing disadvantage in todayâ€™s world. Information is power, as well as a key element of a modern education. Without a decent connection to the worldwide web, people who are already behind the rest of Canadian society are destined to fall further behind. The children in homes without a fast connection are destined to be disadvantaged compared to their peers. It seems less likely they will get a chance to excel at school and beyond, which equals a massive waste of potential. A low-income advocacy group organized a march in Ottawa on April 17 to draw attention to the high cost of high-speed, a price tag that puts the Informa-
tion Highway out of reach for many Canadians. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now is calling for high-speed Internet to be made available to Canadians for $10 a month. Given that the federal government regulates our telephone service, a more affordable Internet is within reach if Parliament feels it is important. Donâ€™t be fooled and think this is all about downloading movies. The Internet is the worldâ€™s encyclopedia and everyone is better off with this massive reference material close at hand. We pay taxes so that our libraries can share information with all residents. Why not a Canadian system to share the Internet with all Canadians? For this tech-savvy nation, itâ€™s within our control to make it happen. The federal government has made rural highspeed Internet a priority, which is commendable. But it should go a step further and make sure itâ€™s affordable too. Every Canadian should have high-speed access. And if their current finances mean they canâ€™t afford it, rates should be controlled. If Internet service providers wonâ€™t or canâ€™t make the cost affordable, itâ€™s up to all of us â€“ through our federal government â€“ to help offset costs so weâ€™re all on an equal footing.
Wife inspired husband to create 20 keys to happiness To the Editor: I wanted to thank you very much for printing the letters from both my brother-in-law as well as a close family friend in consecutive editions of the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide (April 17, 24). It was actually at my wifeâ€™s visitation that this occurred and this simple act of kindness was retained by many that day as emblematic of the future hope for humanity that youth can provide. So on behalf of our family I wish to extend my appreciation for your taking the time and finding the space to include these. In closing I wanted to share this short anecdote which I had sent around to select friends who were experiencing their own current life challenges, which, although it seems to have gone a bit viral, was intended to convey a simple message of guidance. For years it bugged me that while I could have no trouble getting angry over the smallest things and often staying pouty for days on end, my wife seemed to have this magical capacity to find a way to smile every day no matter how

bad her day was going. I must say Sherry was by no means perfect. This yearâ€™s garden plan and associated chore list that she beavered away at until the end contained her typical marching orders (e.g. donâ€™t forget to crop the garlic buds, donâ€™t mow near my daffs, yes, the roses all need bone meal) is proof enough of how evil and demented she could be. However, she was also the happiest person I knew. So I had had enough of her hogging all that sunny disposition energy and figured Iâ€™d get a piece of the action for myself. I hatched a plot to find the source of this fiendish character flaw she was saddled with. I eventually started spying on her and jotting notes on how she chose to respond to lifeâ€™s challenge on a day-today basis. From that clandestine operation, I compiled my research and have subsequently carried the disturbing result of my analysis (please see below) around on a card in my wallet for more than a decade as a reminder of her subversive nature.

Unfortunately applying this stuff doesnâ€™t come very naturally to me, so I find that most days I do or say something that makes me have to take out my wallet and review which line(s) Iâ€™ve forgotten to apply. Incidentally, you should know that Iâ€™d been secretly carrying this card around for years but was too embarrassed to show it to her until just recently. When I did she just smiled and then laughed - of course she would. Sherryâ€™s key to happiness 1. Take pleasure in small things. 2. Never stay angry - talk and move on. 3. Donâ€™t pretend to know more than you do. 4. Always treat nature with respect â€“ donâ€™t forget you are merely part of it. 5. Donâ€™t be acquisitive â€“ itâ€™s only stuff. 6. Never let your work define what you are â€“ itâ€™s only what you do. 7. If youâ€™re doing the talking youâ€™re not listening. 8. Respect othersâ€™ opinions but seek your own good judgement.

Past councils achieved much; don’t waste time criticizing them To the Editor: We just returned from Yellowknife and I have had a chance to read the article in the April 10 edition of the Arnprior ChronicleGuide regarding the past council and staff in Arnprior being unfairly criticized. The article was well written and, by simply reporting the facts, it corrected some of the erroneous statements made over the past several years. The article gave me cause to look back on past councils and my experience with them. I had the pleasure of being a councillor on councils lead by Tom Sullivan, George Johnston and Leonard Shean. These councils had many outstanding and dedicated citizens. Councillors such as Pat Robinson, Nancy Black, and Ken Deluca, to name a few. Staff such as Joe Descent, Chris Forsyth and Garry Buffam provided outstanding support. All of these people were dedicated to the Town of Arnprior and its citizens and spent no time denigrating others. They spent their time and effort advancing the town through many positive initiatives. For seven years ending in 2010, I had the pleasure of leading two consecutive councils comprised of Nancy Black, Ken Deluca, Mark Wilmer, Eric Burton, Tom Peckett, Walter Stack, Carol Ryan, Jack Lammert and Ted Strike. This group of people was typical of a functioning municipal council in that they worked together and accomplished much without need for unjustly criticizing others, while maintaining a very positive vision for the town. In those seven years the following was accomplished:
1) John Street from Madawaska to Robert Simpson Park was totally rebuilt - sewer, water, sidewalks and roadway. 2) Water and sewer services were extended up Staye Court, under the highway along Russett Drive and across Vanjumar Drive. This allowed for the development of not only the Antrim Truck Centre, but also Campbellbrook subdivision and the recent Phoenix Homes subdivision. 3) The first development charge bylaw was designed and implemented. Money raised by the DC charges was earmarked and used as per provincial mandate. The revenues helped pay for recreation, library, public works equipment, firefighting equipment and other expenditures that were triggered by development. 4) Housing starts climbed from less than 25 per year to over 75 per year. 5) Outstanding infrastructure grants for the water filtration plant in excess of one million dollars were recovered with the help of our members of parliament. 6) As a result of fines levied by the Ministry of Environment, the sewer pipe in the Madawaska River was replaced and a new pump station was built on the east side of the river. 7) All of the town’s streets, pipes and sidewalks were inventoried and their replacement prioritized. 8) Arnprior was one of the province’s first communities to implement the new drinking water regulations arising from the Walkerton inquiry. 9) Water and sewer rates were increased and a long-term plan allowing for life cycle replacement using the increased revenue
was started. This included an examination of the condition of all buried infrastructure. 10) A $20 million expansion and upgrade to the wastewater treatment plant was completed. This work resulted in increased capacity (more houses and businesses), less hydraulic loading and a very significant decrease in contamination being discharged into the Ottawa River. 11) Two upgrades were completed at the water filtration plant. The back-up capacity was increased to allow for enhanced safety in case of a failure and a second upgrade allowed for more development and the installation of chloramination equipment. 12) The water tower was upgraded. 13) A new pump station was constructed at Seventh Avenue. 14) The McNab Street outfall was built. 15) Four new dressing rooms were built at the Nick Smith Centre. 16) The downstairs portion of the library was completed. 17) The leaking roofs on the municipal buildings were repaired. This included the library, the town hall, the police/fire station, the museum, the water filtration plant and the Nick Smith Centre. 18) Through the efforts of all citizens, the life of the dump was extended by 12 years. 19) A five-year agreement was signed with McNab-Braeside for library, recreation and water usage. This agreement was extended to allow the new councils in 2010 some time to negotiate new agreements. 20) In keeping with council’s vision of supporting our neighbours and being good citizens of the world, donations were made to the Tsunami Relief Fund, the Katrina
Relief Fund, the Pakistan Earthquake Relief Fund and the McNab-Braeside Flood Relief Fund. Each of these donations was matched by the federal government. 21) The off-street parking lot was upgraded and paved to enhance retail parking. 22) Relief from parking requirements allowed Shoppers Drug Mart and Giant Tiger to build new outlets.

Of Transportation which led to $64 million being provided for the recently completed extension of Highway 17 from Highway 15 (29) to Campbell Drive. 30) Funding was provided by various ministries to upgrade the airport and over 20 private hangers were built. 31) New water and sewer lines under Highway 17 at Baskin Drive were completed, replacing antiquated lines serving the Arnprior Aerospace facility (Boeing) with provincial funds. 32) Allen Drive, Wilfred Crescent and Edward Street were repaved. 33) Kinsmen Crescent, Dan Street and part of Victoria Street were repaved. 34) Ida Street was upgraded, including service lines to allow for housing development. 35) Part of William Street was upgraded by town staff. 36) Bell Street from Madawaska Street to Ottawa Street was totally rebuilt. 37) The extension of Bell Street from Ottawa Street to the hospital through the ADHS parking lot was rebuilt. New lines were installed and the storm and sanitary lines were separated. This allowed all of the rain water running off the ADHS roof to enter the storm sewer rather than the sanitary sewer. This also allowed the ADMH to have the lines necessary for the expansion of that facility and also to access grants. 38) Ottawa Street from John Street to the Gillies Grove was completely rebuilt and upgraded. This allowed for the separation of the largest combined sanitary/storm sewer in Arnprior leading to a substantial reduction in hydraulic loading at the wastewater treatment plant and reduced bypasses into the rivers. 39) Harriet Street from Madawaska to Walter Zadow School was completely rebuilt and services were separated. 40) Harrington Street from Madawaska to the Gillies Grove was completely rebuilt and services were separated.
41) Part of Russell Street and Atkinson Street were repaved. 42) Subdivisions providing for the construction of over 400 houses were approved. 43) Negotiations with the OPP were held over five years, resulting in the proposed $400,000per-year increase not being implemented. Many municipalities in Ontario contacted Arnprior for information on these negotiations. 44) A market analysis, paid for by proponents of development, was completed at councilâ€™s request. This analysis pointed out the need for close to 200,000 square feet of new retail space. 45) The staff and mayor carried out negotiations with TSC, Hart Stores, CTC and others. 46) Several upgrades to windows and safety exits, etc. were carried out at the museum. 47) With the help of, and advice from, City of Ottawa staff, a building audit was commissioned on the town hall. This audit pointed out any problems with the existing building and indicated what remedial actions could be taken. 48) A plan for a refurbishment of the existing town hall was made and priced. 49) Interim steps to make the existing town hall accessible were taken and some services were moved to the ground level. 50) Locating a new town hall between the ambulance building and the emergency services building (fire/police) was examined and a draft plan was drawn. 51) A complete human resources study was done and a salary grid was produced and implemented. 52) A complete energy audit was done leading to large energy savings in all facilities, but particularly at the Nick Smith Centre. 53) Energy efficient lights bulbs were placed in the downtown core and testing was done on several streets with fixtures and bulbs provided by suppliers.

There is more than one way to catch a worm Lifestyle - When it comes to acquiring nutrition, animals show great resourcefulness. Anything organic-based is eaten. Leaves, roots, flowers, seeds, nectar, sap, wood, bark, insects, mammals, birds, fish, and carrion â€“ the list is long and exhaustive. And great creativity is exhibited for each individual item. For example, some animals are specialized for eating earthworms. American Woodcocks, which now can be heard â€˜beepingâ€™ at dusk, have long bills for probing deep into soft earth. The billâ€™s tip has special sensory cells for locating worms, and can be opened near its end to grab a meal deep underground. Star-nosed Moles have huge front feet for digging tunnels through muck and their nose is equipped with odd, finger-like protuberances for detecting worms by touch. American Robins run across
Michael Runtz Natureâ€™s Way lawns, stopping to cock their head to look first with one eye, then the other when they see the slightest movement in a wormâ€™s tunnel. Then with lightening speed the bill strikes down and the worm becomes history. Recently I observed birds catching worms in a very different way.
I was driving past a flooded soccer field at Carleton University when I noticed hordes of Ring-billed Gulls swimming on the water. I stopped to watch for a few minutes and noticed most were staring down into the water as they slowly swam around. Every now and again one would suddenly fly up into the air, hover briefly, and then dive headfirst into the water. When the gull surfaced a large earthworm would be dangling out its beak. After gobbling down its prize, the gull would commence slowly swimming around, repeating the entire process once again. I spent more than an hour watching the gulls and taking their photographs from the car. As there were about 150 gulls on the flooded field and each caught a worm every few minutes, I estimated that several thousand earthworms were being consumed every hour!
PHOTOS BY MICHAEL RUNTZ
Although not earthworm specialists, Ring-billed Gulls readily eat them when available. Every now and again two birds would converge on the same spot and a brief battle would break out.

When I drove by the field the next evening, much of the water was gone and the pond was only half its former size and depth. However, gulls were still present and were still catching worms. But instead of diving they were now just dipping their heads underwater to pluck the worms from the flooded lawn. Ring-billed Gulls are not worm specialists, but they are quick to exploit any feeding opportunity, which is why they are so successful as a species. They eat live fish, which they catch by diving into the water. They scavenge dead fish on shores. They eat worms and beetle grubs exposed by farmers tilling their fields, which is why they swarm behind tractors. And they readily eat human food, which is why Wesâ€™ Chips has signs warning clients not to feed the birds. And, as I witnessed, they certainly eat earthworms driven from the ground when low-lying fields flood in spring. Obviously not only early birds get the worms; the clever ones do too!

PM doesn’t speak for me Your best shot, an Immunization Week message
To the Editor: Re. Friday’s Supreme Court ruling on Senate reform. Stephen Harper stated that: “Essentially this is a decision for the status quo. A status quo that is supported by virtually no Canadian.” How dare Mr. Harper speak on my behalf I have my own opinions and rarely do they coincide with Mr. Harper’s ideas or opinions. Elizabeth Stewart Waba
Arnprior well-served in past Continued from Page 10
54) A Strategic Plan was completed. 55) As over 250 original water meters were not working and existing models could not be repaired, all water meters were replaced. 56) The town hosted the Telus Cup, the Canadian Women’s Hockey Championship and the Canadian Men’s Broomball Championship. 57) The budget was separated into a capital and an operating stream to make the process more transparent and end subsidizing of one from the other. 58) Surplus municipal rights-of-way were sold to adjacent landowners to facilitate development. This was the case in the property beside PJ’s Restaurant, which was divided by an unnecessary allowance bisecting the property. This parcel is now being developed. 59) The municipality fully participated in the Partners in Caring fundraising drive through the use of the municipal billing systems. 60) The municipality negotiated to have the land ambulance station built in Arnprior. This list could go on, but suffice to say that the councils and staff between the years 2002 and 2010 accomplished quite a lot. This was only accomplished through co-operation. The focus, as it has been in the past, was on the people of this community. Little time was wasted on negativity. Decisions, including budgets, were most often past by unanimous agreement. Criticism of other members of council or staff was, by mutual agreement, not tolerated in council meetings. Personnel issues were resolved, as required by the Municipal Act, in-camera. All council meetings were broadcast on Cable 22 and meetings of particular interest were held at the emergency services building (fire hall) to allow access to all. None of the above is unusual. Municipal government in Ontario is governed by the Ontario Municipal Act, which mandates transparency and honesty. Previous councils, without exception, leave behind a very detailed indication of what they have done or planned to do. Let’s move forward and spend less time trying to denigrate past councils or staff. Arnprior has been well served for many years.
To the Editor: The recent measles outbreaks in Canada remind us that infectious diseases still pose a serious threat to our health. Both infants and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to many vaccine-preventable diseases and their complications. For example, infants who are too young to be fully immunized can become seriously ill if they come in contact with an underimmunized adult who is sick with even a mild case of an illness like pertussis. During National Immunization Awareness Week (April 26 to May 3), Immunize Canada calls upon all Canadians to protect themselves and others by staying up to date with their immunizations. “Immunizations are safe, effective, and benefit people of all ages,” says Dr. Susan
Bowles, Chair of Immunize Canada. “They protect individuals and communities by preventing the spread of disease. As more people are immunized, the disease risk for everyone is reduced.” It is now easier than ever for Canadians to keep track of their immunizations thanks to a new app, ImmunizeCA, developed by Immunize Canada in collaboration with the Canadian Public Health Association and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, and funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. “The new ImmunizeCA app provides access to recommended immunization schedules, reliable, expert-approved, bilingual information about immunizations, as well as useful tools such as appointment reminders, and local outbreak alert notifica-
tions,” says Dr. Shelly McNeil, vice-chair of Immunize Canada. The app is easy to use and ideal for Canadians constantly on the go. It is available for secure, free download at the App Store, Google Play and Blackberry World. All can be accessed online at immunize. ca/app. In our busy connected world none of us is isolated, and the best way to protect yourself and the people around you is to get immunized. Talk to your doctor, nurse, pharmacist or local public health office about staying upto-date with your immunizations. Immunize Canada/CPHA Elizabeth Smith, communications manager

The Shawarma Shoppe to open May 3 Sherry.email@example.com
Business â€“ Food lovers, youâ€™ll soon have a tasty new option. The Shawarma Shoppe on Elgin Street will be open for business May 3 and John Soules invites everyone to drop in and see what itâ€™s all about. Originally from Pennsylvania, Soules has been in Canada for almost seven years after meeting his wife Apryl Warren, who lived in Ottawa. Since Warren had relatives in the Renfrew area and the
couple was looking for a small town atmosphere, they decided to settle in Braeside. They have two children together. Soulesâ€™ restaurant experience began in high school with a part-time job and last year he operated a hot dog cart outside Rona in Arnprior. Between those jobs, however, his work focused on damage restoration â€“ helping to restore homes affected by fire, floods, etc. When he decided to have a go at his own restaurant, he and Apryl brainstormed about what kind of food items werenâ€™t being offered in the
local market and shawarmas, something he loves to cook at home, came to mind. â€œI like to make them, theyâ€™re a lot of fun,â€? said Soules. The traditional Lebanese food consists of a pita, marinated chicken, garlic sauce and Soules likes to add hummus. And to naysayers who question how someone who is not Lebanese can make a perfect shawarma, Soules has this to say: â€œOne of the best pizza makers I know is German.â€? He will make everything he can from scratch, including the tzatziki and hummus.
He will also use as many local suppliers as he can. The Shawarma Shoppe will also sell donairs and among Soulesâ€™ future plans are kafta burgers, which are traditionally made with lamb but he will make with ground beef and the traditional Lebanese spices and serve on a pita bun. Sides include rice pilaf and roasted potatoes, along with freshly made salads, including tabbouleh. Also on offer will be premade sandwiches and salads. The Shawarma Shoppe is located 24 Elgin St., the former Our Place in the Prior
John Soules is pleased to be opening The Shawarma Shoppe May 3. The new restaurant is on Elgin Street. building. He looked at several possible locations but loved the spot and its dĂŠcor. â€œI love the rustic feel of it â€“ the floors and the brick,â€? said Soules.

CLOTHES SHOPS 254 Raglan St. S. Downtown Renfrew 16 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, May 1, 2014
News - Three recent impaired driving arrests, including two in the early morning in Arnprior, have prompted the local OPP to issue a reminder to drivers how serious the problem is in the area. The Renfrew-Arnprior OPP report that the three cases in the past week for drinking and driving related offences has them concerned. “Impaired driving remains the leading criminal cause of deaths in our country and the penalties for impaired driving can be expensive and cause severe hardship,” says the OPP in a news release. “When you live in the country where public forms of transportation are limited, most people depend on their ability to drive to attend work and make a living. “Having a driver’s licence is a privilege not a right. This privilege should be respected and appreciated. Don’t take your driver’s licence for granted.” On Friday, April 18 at 12:20 a.m., police responded to a report of an erratic driver on Madawaska Boulevard in Arnprior. The suspect vehicle was stopped and the driver found to have been drinking, say police. He failed a roadside alcohol test and was ar-
rested. Following further tests at the detachment, the 25-year-old Arnprior man Calvin was charged with impaired driving and driving over 80 mgs. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew on May 14. OPP Constable Carlvin Burgins investigated. On Wednesday, April 23 at 12:23 a.m., police were patrolling in Arnprior when they stopped a vehicle for failing to halt at a stop sign. Further investigation revealed the male driver had been drinking. He failed a roadside alcohol screening test and was arrested. After taking further tests at the detachment, the 30-year-old McNab-Braeside man was charged with driving over 80 mgs, driving a vehicle with open alcohol and failing to stop at a stop sign. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew on May 14. OPP Const. Walid Kandar investigated. The third arrest occurred April 19 in Renfrew when a 49-year-old Ottawa man was charged with driving over 80 mgs. The three cases were among the 170 calls, including 10 domestic disputes, responded to by the Renfrew OPP Detachment last week.
News - OPP report that a local teenager is facing incest charges after his sister came forward to say she had been sexually assaulted. The teenage victim reported being sexually assaulted over a period of several years by her brother. As a result of the police investigation, an 18-year-old male was
arrested and charged with sexual assault on a person under 16, sexual interference with a person under 16 and incest. He was released on a promise to appear and undertaking with conditions. He is not being identified by police in order to protect the identity of the victim. Detective Constable Trevor Nicholas investigated.

Building owners first to receive grant Continued from Page 5
Reeve Walter Stack was impressed with all the work, but didn’t take long to mention how anxious he is to see a report on the landfill so action can get started. He also asked about the possible expansion of the streetlight program. Mayor David Reid said the list represents about half of the ongoing work at public works. “It is a very aggressive work schedule,” Reid said. “It’s good for people to know the work that goes on behind the scenes.” RENOVATION GRANT
The town’s fund for sprucing up private properties around town got its first customer.
The former Dr. J’s Audiotronic building owners are renovating two second level apartments. They applied to the town’s new community improvement plan for grants and will likely get $2,250 of a possible $15,250. Coun. Lynn Grinstead said they should have gotten more, and is worried the $35,000 fund will not be exhausted by year’s end. “This amount we are granting for the first time is too little,” Grinstead said, adding that minimum and maximum amounts should be created. “What if no other applicants come through? This amount is less than we should be awarding.” Chief administrative officer Michael Wildman said the recipients are “very appreciative” of the money they received. MONICA LYONS/SUBMITTED

Arts – The Arnprior School of Dance sent 14 groups of dancers ranging in age from 3 to 30-plus to its second regional competition of the season at Algonquin College Saturday and Sunday. The local dancers performed against dance schools from Quebec, Ottawa and Almonte. Included was a competitive ballet group taught by Tara Sabourin. Arnprior School of Dance officials were very pleased with the performances and clearly so were the judges. An exciting addition to the trophies and medals received was earned by Arnprior senior dancer, Rebecca Cowal, who was awarded a ‘Be Discovered’ dance scholarship to Los Angeles this summer. Be Discovered is based in Toronto and has been in operation for 12 years. It offers a very special dance experience. Dancers from all over the world will experience L.A.’s professional dance world while training with the industry’s best dancers, choreographers, stars, agents and leading industry decision-makers.

Students at St. Joseph’s School in Arnprior had an inspiring experience at the recent We Day at Canadian Centre. Some of the students who attended join Carleton Place based singer Alex Vala at a recent followup event at the school.
Life - Students at St. Joseph’s School in Arnprior had an inspiring experience at the recent We Day at Canadian Centre and organizing their local We Create Change campaign. Following are pieces written by the students chronicling their experiences. Katie McIntyre, Brooke Blanchard Our experience at We Day was inspiring. We listened to many speakers who told stories about people in third world countries and how our lives are so different and the littlest things can make the biggest difference. They taught us how to love ourselves and others no matter what and even if you don’t like someone you should respect them. It only takes one person to get the ball rolling and that person could be you. We had a great time at We Day and we encourage you to sign up for next year. Ted Smith Nancy. Brisson’s Grade 5 class at St. Joseph’s School is raising money for We Create Change. We Create Change is a campaign that helps build schools across the world. They also help bring clean water to the schools, help teach kids how to farm, give them health care, food and education. Our class is having fundraisers like hat day, gum day, hot dog day, duct tape day, famous day, formal day and many more. Almost every spirit day is 50 cents to participate in the awesome spirit days. This week if you brought $1 you could get out of class to see upcoming singer Alex Vala. The campaign started March 19 and is trying to build over 200 schools. Our school has raised $2,000 - $20 = one brick, 500 bricks = one school. As Canadians we’re really lucky to have what we have. Payton McGregor Nancy Brisson’s Grade 5 class raises money for We Create Change From March 19 to April 17, Mrs. Brisson’s Grade 5 class started a campaign called We Create Change. We Create Change is a campaign to help build 200 schools around the world. $20 = one brick, 500 bricks = a school. We Create Change wants to open the doors to many students around the world. Over the past five weeks, St. Joseph’s School has raised $2,000. Mrs. Brisson’s Grade 5 students have hosted many spirit days such as crazy hair day, duct tape day, formal day and many more. The average spirit day cost 50 cents and the most successful one was hot dog day with a total of $530 raised. Schools will be built in Kenya, Africa, India, Haiti and many more. Not only will kids be able to go to school they will get agriculture, medicine, care, clean water and education. We can help change the world, one coin, one brick, one school at a time.

MP holds impromptu consultation session in Arnprior
Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant meets with Arnprior constituents.
OPEN HOUSE GUIDE
News - Taxation, funding of the CBC, interprovincial relations, Senate reform, Old Age Security (OAS), wireless competition and modernization of agricultural laws were among the topics raised during a recent constituents meeting in Arnprior, says Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. The â€˜roundtable discussionâ€™ was not publicly advertised ahead-of-time, so appears to have been by invitation only. Gallant said the recommendations for new government policies stemming from the discussion ranged from increasing tax-free savings account limits, to making old-age security increases retroactive and ending the monopoly on technology networks. â€œI was impressed with the practicality of the solutions R0012675700

Lifestyle – The Arnprior Public Library in partnership with the Arnprior Book Shop is pleased to host bestselling author Sandra Gulland this Sunday, May 4. Gulland’s latest book is a seductive gripping novel about the lure and illusion of power and black magic. The Shadow Queen is set in Paris in the year 1660. Publisher Harper Collins describes the novel as follows: “As the daughter of itinerant actors who once lit up the Parisian stages, Claudette always thought her future lay in the theatre. But a series of chance encounters pull her into the alluring orbit of the most powerful woman in France, Athenais de Montespan, the unofficial mistress to Louis XIV and reigning .Shadow Queen’.”
Lifestyle - Interested in Arctic history? Did you know Capt. Joseph-Elzéar Bernier wanted to claim the North Pole for Canada? Most people have heard of the American who made it to the Pole, Lt. Robert Peary, or Sir John Franklin, who got lost in the Arctic altogether with two ships and 129 men. But the stories of the Canadian explorers are not stories we know. That’s why Valley author Season Osborne wrote a book about the little-known Canadian expeditions to the North. Osborne, who grew up on the Burnstown Road and went to RCI, will be signing copies of her book, In the Shadow of the Pole, An Early History of Canadian Arctic Expeditions, 18711912, this Saturday, May 3,

Miksikâ€™s 18 wins placed him second in the entire EOJHL and his 1,301 Saves were an EOJHL best. Top Scorer - Damian Armstrong Whether the Packers were up by two goals or down by two goals, Armstrong always gave the same effort. He is a relentless forechecker who made life very difďŹ cult on opposing teams goaltenders. His 23 goals and 47 points weâ€™re career bests as he was a threat both on the power-play and while short-handed. His leadership on and off the ice also earned him the Presidents Award, which is given yearly to the player who best exempliďŹ es what it is to be an Arnprior Packer. Alex Staye Award - John McLean The Alex Staye Award is given annually to the Packers Top Playoff Contributor and this season it was won by captain John McLean. After posting 15 goals and 15 assists in 32 games in the regular season, McLean added 3 goals and 5 assists 6 playoff games. The Packers look forward to having the Dunrobin native wear the â€˜Câ€™ for the next three years. Top Defenseman - Michael McGrath Heâ€™s big, heâ€™s strong, heâ€™s fast, and heâ€™s only 17 years old. In his second full season of Junior B hockey, the Arnprior native reached a new level. Logging big minutes every night, shutting down the opposing teams top lines, McGrath was also able to chip in 3 goals and 15 points while playing in all 41 games. Top Rookie - Chris Marchand Speed, energy, passion is the Packers motto and Chris Marchand brought all those things to the table. In 41 games, the 17-year-old posted 11 goals and 28 points, not bad for a kid

Terry Ryan Award (Unsung Hero) - Brayden Harvey A forward turned defenseman at the start of the season, Harvey is the kind of player who deďŹ nes character. In his second season with the Packers, the Brampton native scored 1 goal and added 10 assists in 30 games before a broken hand sidelined him for the remaining 11 games of the season. He returned in time for playoffs and battled each game even though he wasnâ€™t 100 per cent. Most Improved Player Award - Patrick McGrath In his ďŹ rst season with the Packers, McGrath was able to post 22 more points then he had the previous season with the Renfrew Timberwolves. He ďŹ nished second on the Packers with 20 goals and 33 points in 39 games. The twin tandem of Patrick and Michael McGrath looks very promising for years to come in Arnprior.

Orienteering club prepares to host North American championships Derek Dunn email@example.com
Sports – Orienteering Ottawa was readying the site of the North American championships with a competition last weekend in West Carleton. About 100 participants came out Sunday to the EcoWellness centre on the Carp Ridge for the sport that requires mapping and compass skills to navigate from point to point in diverse and usually unfamiliar terrain, and normally moving speedily. Orienteering began in the 1960s as a training exercise in land navigation for soldiers, but didn’t catch on in Ottawa until the 1970s. Now the Carp Ridge and the Town of
Arnprior are set to host the ﬁrst ofﬁcial North American Orienteering Championships (NAOC). David Rosen from the International Orienteering Federation was brought over from the U.K. as an advisor to the championships. Speaking in the Carp area Sunday, he said he is impressed with the organizers and the terrain. “It’s beautiful terrain, especially the open rock barrens,” Rosen said. “The maps are very detailed with boulders and ripples and thick vegetation. They’ve done a good job organizing it.” The North American Orienteering Championships take place over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, Oct. 10-13. The sprint and the relay will take place in Arnprior,
and Arnprior will be headquarters for the weekend. The event centre, meals, accommodation and entertainment will all be in Arnprior at Robert Simpson Park. “Arnprior is doing everything in their power to make it a great event,” said NAOC organizer Gloria Rankin. The middle and long events will be held on new maps of the Carp Ridge - site of the 2010 Canadian Championships Middle and Long events. The relevant areas have now been embargoed. Lots of non-competitive activities are also planned: recreational events, clinics, training opportunities, children’s activities. See ottawaoc.ca for more.
Gloria Rankin and David Rosen participate in an orienteering challenge on April 27 on the EcoWellness centre grounds along the Carp Ridge. Rosen travelled from England to advise the group on holding North America’s championships in Arnprior and West Carleton Oct. 10 to 13.

Duffy rising in music world John Carter firstname.lastname@example.org
Singing their way to the top Melissa Tinsley, left, and Anna Burnette, both of Arnprior, participated in the vocal section of the Renfrew Rotary Music Festival last week and both came home with firstplace rankings. The festival, which also features a piano segment, continues this week. The public is invited to be entertained by the top performers from the festival at the awards night concert Wednesday, May 7 at 7 p.m. at Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church in Renfrew.
Arts – Peter Duffy first knew his daughter Laura had a special talent when he was pushing the 5-year-old on a swing and she broke into ‘Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina’. Laura Duffy showed many signs of her singing talent growing up in Arnprior and has become a much sought-after soprano opera singer. She will be singing in a Mother’s Day concert with the Strings of St. John’s on Sunday, May 11 in Ottawa. While singing was always her forte, her parents, Peter and Barbara, encouraged her to also take piano lessons when young. That further strengthened her knowledge of music. She also was guided in her music by Lisa Pecora. Duffy, a graduate of Arnprior District High School, played Dorothy in the school’s production of the Wizard of Oz a few years ago. She continued with her musical education at Queens and has just been accepted into the Doctor of Music program, with funding help and a teacher’s assistant position, at the University of Western Ontario. Duffy is currently studying under mezzo-soprano Patricia Green. She completed her Master of Music at the

Valley Concert Band event raises funds for local army cadets Sherry Haaima email@example.com
Community – Enjoy an evening of great music for a wonderful cause. The Valley Concert Band will treat music lovers to a spring concert May 8 at Carlton Reid Hall in the Emmanuel Anglican Church. This year’s fundraising concert will benefit the 2360 Arnprior Royal Canadian Army Cadets. Conductor Keith Estabrooks said when his organization learned the corps would like to
eventually start its own band, supporting those efforts seemed a natural fit. “Being a band we thought we could try and help them out,” he said. The Valley Concert Band supports various charities with its concerts. Last year’s event raised money for the Child Poverty Action Network. Created in 1987, the band is sponsored by the Arnprior Legion Branch 174. The group practises in the Legion hall. The band consists of about 38 members from across the Ottawa Valley.
“They come from all over,” said Estabrooks. “From as far as Orleans and Ottawa, from Shawville, Pembroke, Renfrew, White Lake, Almonte Arnprior and more.” A member himself since 1995, Estabrooks said the upcoming concert will offer a variety of music. “At this one there’s a little bit of everything,” he said. “It should be a lot of fun.” Broadway numbers from Oklahoma and Jersey Boys, Beatles music and some World War II era selections are on the program. A performance from female vocalist Dale
Tapp of Pembroke rounds out the show. The band has been busy with local engagements, having just played a concert at the Perley-Rideau Veterans Health Centre and planning for a joint concert with students at Stonecrest Elementary this week. Organizers are grateful to Emmanuel Anglican Church for the donation of the hall. The hall is located at 287 Harrington St. in Arnprior. The venue is fully accessible. General admission tickets cost $10 and are available at the door. Doors open at 7 and the concert begins at 7:30 p.m.

Opry show to support RVH healing garden Staff
Events - Dust off your boots for the Country Opry Show Saturday, May 10 in Renfrew. The fundraiser for the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Healing Garden will be begin at 7 p.m. at The RCAF Wing. The evening pays tribute to the legends by the voices of Kevin White, Keith Mulvihill, Andy Taylor, Faron Brown, Chris Burant, Carla Pilatzke, Katie Skerkowski, Emily Etmanski, Tim Hermitte, Dennis Meilleur, Cindy Sidock, Guy Jamieson and Mary Etmanski. Organizer Mary Dick-Etmanski enjoys a long history on the local music scene. She
started competing at the music festivals, then sponsored by the Kiwanis Club at age six. She met Mac Beattie for the first time when she was 10 and was fortunate enough to become part of Mac Beattie and the Ottawa Valley Melodiers for quite a few years. Her parents drove her all over the place allowing her to sing whenever possible. Mac Beattie became a mentor and a wonderful friend. “He treated me so kindly and at the same time let me have fun,” she said. Dick-Etmanski feels her confidence came during her years with the Melodiers. And now, she views herself as the only living member of that favoured group.
Her big break came when she sang with Don Messer in Pembroke. Memories linger for her from the days she sang at the Lake Dore dances as well as times she shared the stage at the Renfrew Hotel with Stompin’ Tom Connors. For the Country Opry Show, she has put together one of the best house bands you will ever find. The group consists of her uncle Al Brisco, Bob Schwartz, Brian Hebert, Tim Hermitte, Roy Feener, Andy Clark and John Steele. Lights and sound are managed by Dan Dubeau. Charlie Kitts will be the emcee. Tickets coast $15 and at available at Aikenhead’s Drug Store, from the entertainers or at the door.

She also holds a Bachelor of Music from Queens University in Kingston, where she studied with soprano Dianne Baird. In 2006 Laura debuted in her first operatic role as Madame Lidoine in the Queen’s University production of the Dialogues des carmelites. In 2008 she was granted the Herbert and Stella Overton Award on the basis of exceptional achievement in applied music. In 2010 she appeared as the Maid in the UWO’s production of Thomas Ades’ Powder Her Face and again in 2011 as Costanza in Vivaldi’s Griselda. In 2012 Duffy was chosen as one of 12 singers to take part in the Songfire Young Artist course at the University of British Columbia and was awarded a full
scholarship to the program. She spent that fall studying in Copenhagen, Denmark, at the Royal Academy of Music under the direction of Eva Thess-Haysen. Last summer, when she participated in the Canadian Operatic Arts Academy in London, Ontario, she was selected to sing with Orchestra London in a gala concert. This summer, Laura will be performing the role of Flora in Britten’s Turn of the Screw in Lucca, Italy. Her parents are thrilled by her success and catch her performances whenever they can. While a proposed concert in Arnprior has fallen through, the 8 Cellos and a Soprano concert is a go for Mother’s Day. Duffy will sing with the eight local cellists called The Strings of St John’s at the 2 p.m. con-
cert at the Church of St John the Evangelist at 154 Somerset St. West (corner of Elgin) in downtown Ottawa. The concert will feature the famous Bachianas Brasileiras by Heitor Villa-Lobos, written for a soprano and eight cellos Mothers who come to the concert with family members will be offered free admission and treated to not only the famous Villa-Lobos aria, but also Les illuminations by Britten, a concerto grosso by Handel and works by Glazunov and Gade. The Strings of St. John’s is made up of amateur adult string players who perform “affordable concerts featuring local musicians” playing a broad range of repertoire, including new music by Ottawa area composers. Conducted by Gordon Johnston and Donnie Deacon, the strings invite retired profes-
sional musicians to play with the orchestra, enabling them to continue to share their musical gifts with the community and encouraging their help in developing amateur adult musicians. The Strings have been fortunate enough to have Janet Roy, the former principal second violin of the National Arts Centre Orchestra, as their concertmaster since 2003. Tickets for the Mother’s Day concert are available at the Arnprior Book Shop, Arnprior Public Library, Gallery Gift Shop, Goldbar and Mulvihill JP and Son Insurance. Ticket prices are $17 in advance ($20 at the door), $15 for students and seniors (60+) and $60 for admissions (at the door). For more information in Arnprior, call Peter Duffy at 613797-6348.

ALL WORK AND NO PLAY: Ontario’s Retirement Crisis

How will you fund your retirement?
• CPP: 90% • RRSPs: 88% • Part-time job: 59% • Sell home: 49% • Win lottery: 34%
A METROLAND SPECIAL SERIES PART 1
Make workplace pensions mandatory: lobbyist Continued from Page 34
Some question whether people who now don’t currently contribute to an RRSP would want to contribute to a voluntary plan. At a time when traditional company pensions are rapidly disappearing, and CPP benefits are capped annually at $12,000, there is agreed sentiment that doing nothing will leave millions of middle-class earners vulnerable in retirement years. Several provincial finance ministers, including Sousa, have stepped forward to urge the federal government to move on reforms, including implementing modest increases to CPP contributions. But calls to prop up the federal program have ultimately fallen on deaf ears. Former Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said the na-
Given the amount that the CPP ... pays out, Canadians should not rely on them as a primary source of income to fund their retirement. SUSAN ENG, RETIREMENT SAVINGS EXPERT
tion’s economy isn’t strong enough to support the increased taxation needed to bolster the fund. Policymakers are nervous about declining savings, increased household debt and an overheated housing market. Flaherty had suggested taking more out of incomes of most of the working population isn’t a sound idea. “Right now the federal government is apprehensive about doing any of this, which is strange because it is in the benefit of Canadians in the long term,” Sousa said. Frustrated by federal foot-dragging, the province is drafting its own vision for an Ontario Pension Plan to supplement the CPP. Earlier this year, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne appointed former prime minister Paul Martin as a special adviser on pensions. Martin will contribute to a technical panel comprised of pension experts. Eng and other retirement savings experts suggest that individuals require 50-70 per cent of their pre-retirement income to maintain their standard of living in retirement. Most Ontarians can’t save enough to meet that target. Eng says, at best, with CPP and Old Age Security combined, one can earn about $18,000 annually post-retirement. Most Ontarians earn about $9,000 from CPP and Old Age Se-
curity, she said, with the average monthly payout less than $600. Chris Buttigieg, senior manager, Wealth Planning Strategy for BMO Financial Group, says sole dependence on CPP after retirement is a dire mistake. “Given the amount that the CPP ... pays out, Canadians should not rely on them as a primary source of income to fund their retirement,” he said. “Rather, they should consider the CPP … to be a supplementary component of their overall retirement income solution and focus on creating their very own personal pension plan by contributing to an RRSP on a regular basis.” Others are counting on the sale of a home as a way to fund retirement. That’s exactly what Sung Joo Park, a self-employed caterer, did after she turned 60. Park, 76, lives in a rented apartment in Mississauga. Her husband, Jong Joo Park, 82, died earlier this year. Neither one of them had a private pension plan. “It’s hard,” she said. “Life was a lot easier 20 years ago.”
Eng is calling on Ontario to make workplace pension plans mandatory. “It has to come into existence and somebody has to create it,” she said. Details on an Ontario plan still need to be ironed out. The plan though would likely be run by an independent organization at arms-length from the provincial government. It would also use a defined contribution system that allows workers the choice to opt out. Sousa is keen on the idea of a mandatory system with an optout clause, similar to what’s being done in Quebec and also in other countries. The Liberals remain steadfast on introducing new reforms. But any new pension would have to be approved by the Ontario legislature where the Liberals hold minority status. If the opposition parties vote down the government, the province will face an election, and a pension scheme for Ontario could be put on hold.
Nothing is guaranteed, not even your private pension LOUIE ROSELLA Staff
News - If you’re enrolled in a pension plan, chances are your money is safe. Maybe. Perry Quinton, vice-president of marketing at Investor Education Fund (IEF), a non-profit organization founded by the Ontario Securities Commission, says anyone who is either looking for work or already employed should view privately-funded pension plans as a necessity. “It can be free money that if you don’t sign up for it, you’re not going to get it,” she says. “Any kind of incentive that forces you to save money is brilliant.” Quinton and her organization say there are mainly two types of private pension plans of-
fered in Ontario: • a defined benefit pension plan, where the employer promises a specified monthly benefit on retirement that is pre-determined by a formula. It’s up to the employer to deliver what they promised when you retire. If a plan doesn’t have enough money, the employer will have to put more money into the fund. • a defined contribution pension plan or Group Registered Retirement Savings Plan (Group RRSP), in which both you and your employer can put money into the plan. In either case, a trust company or insurance company holds this money in a separate account for you. You, not the company, own that money. Even if your employer goes bankrupt, your money is safe. Of course, you can always lose some or all
of your money if the market crashes or if you don’t invest it wisely, the IEF says. Your pension plan should not run out of money if the employer manages the fund properly, Quinton says. Even if the worst happens, some of your pension savings may be protected. In Ontario, most employers of defined benefit plans pay a yearly fee to Ontario’s Pensions Benefits Guarantee Fund. This fund insures the first $1,000 of an employee’s monthly pension in case the employer goes bankrupt. It’s the only fund of this type in Canada. However, not even this unique fund will guarantee that an employee gets all of his/her promised pension, Quinton says, noting the infamous Nortel Networks bankruptcy case in which employees didn’t receive all of their
promised pension. Should an employee be fired or choose to leave the company, depending on the type of plan, he/she may have the option of transferring their pension earnings into another plan, Quinton says. They could also leave it where it is and collect at time of retirement or transfer into a locked-in retirement savings account (LIRA), which works much like an RRSP. There is always the chance that a company chooses to shut down its pension plan, which it can do at anytime. “If the plan was properly funded, you should get everything you have earned so far,” Quinton says. However, if the plan was underfunded, you may not get all you’re promised, Quinton says.

Hospice Renfrew to host Kids and Grief workshop
Be Inspired â€“ Be Inspiring Donate Today.
Registered Nurse Linda Hay will lead the interactive workshop May 13 in the lower level of the hospice Lifestyle - Hospice Renfrew invites interested members of the community to attend a special education workshop on â€˜Kids and Griefâ€™ on Tuesday, May 13. The workshop will take place in the lower level of Hospice Renfrew from 7 to 9 p.m. at 459 Albert St. in Renfrew. The facilitator of the workshop is Registered Nurse Linda Hay, who has both personal and professional experience in grieving the loss of a child and supporting children who are also grieving. Kids and Grief will be an interactive workshop in
which Hay presents a collection of actual stories and art work from grieving children with whom she has worked in palliative care and bereavement. In addition to sharing childrenâ€™s grief expression in their art, Hay will share information about different age groups and how they see grief and respond to it. She will also provide suggestions about how adults can help children and adolescents with their grief. Because the lower level of the hospice has limited seating, advanced registration is required. Register by Friday, May 9 by calling 613-433-3993, ext. 2231 or by
emailing email@example.com. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED
Seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.While there is no fee to attend the workshop, a donation in support of the work of Hospice Renfrew would be welcomed. The workshop is made possible by generous community donations and by grant money received from Renfrew County United Way.

Golden Age Activity centre receives federal grant funding News – The Golden Age Activity Centre in Renfrew has received $24,500 through the federal government’s New Horizons for Seniors Program. The centre in downtown Renfrew plans to use the funding to purchase sound and music equipment, computers, and new appliances to provide the means for seniors to interact socially as well as take part in educational activities. The goal is to engage area seniors in active, social activities to enhance lifestyles and encourage active healthy living.
In making the announcement last Friday, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant expressed delight that the centre’s application was successful,” and promised to visit it soon “to witness the worthy endeavours this funding will support.” Organizations that want to help seniors make a difference in the lives of others, and in their communities, are eligible to receive federal grants and contributions funding from the New Horizons program.

GET ALL MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY INVOLVED IN YOUR CHARITABLE GIVING the perfect amount to leave children is enough “money so that they would feel they could do anything, but not so much that they could do nothing. ” One of the most challenging estate planning questions that parents have to wrestle with is how much of their estate should they leave to their children. As Warren Buffet once famously remarked,
Once parents have provided an appropriate amount of ﬁnancial support to their children, they are often motivated to give back to the community. An increasing number of Canadian families are establishing family foundations in order to encourage all family members to get involved in the family’s charitable giving.
A private foundation is particularly well-suited to a family situation. Family members can be directors or trustees of the foundation and play an active role in deciding how funds will be managed and what charities will be supported by the foundation. Families ﬁnd that the foundation keeps the family connected and parents can pass along their beliefs and values to children and grandchildren.
Apart from bringing the family together t Signiﬁcant tax planning opportunities in order to promote charitable giving, a for the family. private family foundation has numerous Although there are costs associated with other beneﬁts including: the establishment of a family foundation, t The ability of the family to decide on a number of ﬁnancial institutions can an ongoing basis which charitable assist families with the establishment of organizations it will support; a foundation and many of the ongoing t The opportunity to create a legacy which administrative services. will continue once the parents have passed away;

Lifestyle - The seeds from Steele-Briggs has long since arrived in the mail. Mother had little wood flats laid out all over the downstairs of the house. Every day I checked looking for sprouts of life, and when I saw some that hadn’t been there before, I was as excited as if I was witness to a birth, which, in a way, it was. Some of the boxes filled the window sills, and space on the bake table had been taken over, and that table pushed close to the window that looked out into the grape arbour. Mother tried to capture as much sunlight as possible to help her growing seeds along.
I couldn’t tell what the plants were to become, and I wasn’t sure Mother knew either. So to take the mystery out of it all, Mother laced the empty seed packet onto a little stick and there was one in each box identifying what was planted. Very clever indeed, was my mother. There was still a chill in the air, but the days were warming up, and Mother said soon the garden would be ploughed up and by then the sprouts could be ready for planting. Every night before I went to bed, I carried my little kitten Fluffy in my arms and circled the boxes, putting firmly in my mind

how tall each sprig was, so that in the morning I could check to see what growth had taken place over the night. Mother, who was dead set against any pets in the house, allowed me to keep Fluffy, but only until she was grown enough to move to the barn. And with her in my arms, I would talk to her about the plants and how once they had been tiny little seeds, sure in my mind that she knew every word I was saying. “Those have grown a good inch,” Mother said that night, as she took a teaspoon and poked at the earth around the little plants coming to life in the box under the window. I wanted to believe her, but to me they looked exactly as they did two days before. Firmly holding Fluffy, I got down on my knees and smelled the little plants. All I could smell was earth. I put Fluffy’s nose close too, but she didn’t seem the least bit interested in whether or not the plants were showing any sign of life. Sometimes I sneaked Fluffy upstairs to my bedroom, which I shared with my older sister Audrey. I’d put her under my bed on a folded blanket. That night I put her in her small cardboard box behind the Findlay Oval, because the house had cooled down, and I knew she would be as snug as a bug in a rug. I wakened the next morning to Mother’s yelling up the stairwell for
me to get down to the kitchen, and I better make it fast! Wiping the sleep from my eyes I followed Mother’s pointing figure to the flat box of sprouts under the kitchen window. There was Fluffy, stretched out as neat as you please, on top of what was just about ready for planting. With orders to remove “that cat” immediately, and to get her right out to the barn, and she was never to darken the door again, Mother stopped only long enough to repeat once again that animals belong in the barn. I scooped up the kitten, and even I knew the sprouts were beyond repair. Mother said I could take the wood box out to the junk pile behind the silo when I was at it. Still in my pyjamas, with Fluffy under one arm, and the box of soil and flattened sprouts in the other, I headed for the silo. Fluffy spent the rest of her days with the rest of the barn cats well away from the house. Litter boxes were unheard of back in those days, but you didn’t need a university degree to tell you the smell coming from the wood box held more than a few dozen would-be vegetable plants.

chips into 28 dogs and four cats at the Arnprior Pet Valu store. He has offered his services a half dozen times for clinics offered by the Arnprior District Humane Society.

program is being fueled by a growing number of stories about missing pets on Facebook and Twitter. As well, some pet-owners are micro-chipping their pets in response to concerns that pets are being stolen in the area, with the police on the outlook for a man in a van that reportedly has been trying to pick up dogs. The high-profile case of two puggles missing for almost a year from a Fitzroy Harbour home has attracted a great deal of attention to the issue. The microchips make it easier to determine the owners of found pets. The microchip number is available to the pets’ owner, veterinarian and the Oakville-based 24PetWatch company so pets can be identified. The humane society is a strong believer in the program for both dogs and cats, offering it annually in Arnprior. It is also considering scheduling a microchip clinic in Renfrew this September or October. Arnprior resident Christine Higgins is also a strong supporter of program. She had both her dogs, Cooper and Dodge, microchipped Sunday. Dr. Caldwell, who also volunteers regularly with the Ottawa Humane Society, also encourages all pet owners to get their pets microchipped. He thanked the Arnprior Pet Valu store for providing its facilities to give the program a convenient loca-

Vacationing safely in Canada with Fido tagging along Lifestyle - Headling on vacation with your pet? Banff, Calgary, Edmonton, Lake Louise, MontrĂŠal, Mont Tremblant, Ottawa, Quebec City, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria and Whistler all offer petfriendly hotels, dog parks and attractions, dog restaurants, pet services such as grooming and veterinarian care and dog events. Before you leave, make sure your dog has an ID tag and is microchipped. The identification should include your petâ€™s name, address and two phone numbers where you can be reached.
Try to pack enough food to last your pet through the entire vacation. â€œThe digestive tract of dogs craves continuity,â€? says Dr. Murray. While vacation may mean new cuisines for you, new foods can leave your dog with diarrhea or an even more serious condition like pancreatitis, a sudden inflammation of the pancreas caused by eating fatty foods like table scraps. If itâ€™s not possible to bring that much kibble, find a pet store at your destination that carries your dogâ€™s typical fare. For dogs with chronic health
problems, pack enough medication and put it in two different places just in case one gets lost and bring a copy of your dogâ€™s prescriptions and medical records just in case you lose both packages of medication or require a vet visit. ON THE ROAD
Your dog may never leave your side at home but may be unpredictable in a foreign environment, like a rest stop. Never let your dog off a restraint outdoors while travelling. A dog off leash is at risk for

The show runs from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The society has two more fundraisers in the next six weeks. The groupâ€™s annual yard sale and barbecue will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 24 at the shelter at 490 Didak Dr. in Arn-
prior. Donated items can be dropped off beginning next week (no electronic, please). One of the societyâ€™s most important fundraisers, the annual Walkathon, will be held Sunday, June 8 at Robert Simpson Park. Registration begins at 10 a.m. and two- and five-kilometre walks along the Madawaska River and through Gillies Grove will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be a barbecue and door prizes.

getting injured or lost. No dog is immune to temptation or fear. A passing biker or the backfiring of a car engine can send it running. Invest in a snug collar that wonâ€™t slip over its head. Itâ€™s never safe to leave a traveling dog alone in a car. This is especially important during the summer when car temperatures can become fatal within minutes even if its overcast and the windows are open. If air travel is in your plans, remember big dogs on planes must ride underneath the cabin. Your dog should ride with you in the cabin or it should stay home, unless youâ€™re going away for far too long to consider that option. Try to feed your dog at least six hours before strapping it into its seat belt. Canine stomachs tend to respond poorly to the bumps and
IAN STUPP jolts of cars and planes. Nausea and vomiting can result from feeding time being too close to departure time. AT YOUR DESTINATION
Whether itâ€™s a dog-friendly hotel or a dog-friendly relative who will be housing you during your vacation, itâ€™s important that your pet leave a good impression.
Donâ€™t allow your dog to chew the furniture or to sniff other guests. Before you arrive at your hotel, review animal policies or talk to your hosts about their expectations regarding your dog. Ensure your petâ€™s emotional ease by bringing along something from home that smells familiar like a favorite toy, dog bed or a piece of your clothing, etc. A dog that feels safe and secure will most likely to be an excellent travel companion. Vacationing with your fourlegged family member can be really rewarding for a pet lover.

This beautiful girl is Arielle! After living for many years at the shelter, Arielle is desperately seeking a forever home.

Arielle is overweight and requires an owner that would be willing to dedicate themselves to helping her lose a few pounds, she would be best suited in a quiet home with another cat for company.
