Elementary teachers in Ontarioâ€™s public schools, including those in the Renfrew County board, are expected to dial back their work mandate on Monday, May 11 after the union representing them notified the public of
province-wide strike action. The Elementary Teachersâ€™ Federation of Ontario alerted the provincial government and Ontario Public School Boardsâ€™ Association on May 5 that teachers and occasional teachers would begin strike action on May 11. See WORK-TO-RULE Page 6
New season, new start at Sand Point
The revamped Sand Point Golf Course (formerly Arnprior Golf Club) opened for the season on April 28 with new ownership and a new name. The 18-hole golf course saw 85 people hit the tees by late afternoon, according to pro shop manager Ryan Condon. He added the clubhouse is being renovated inside and thereâ€™s been some interest in new memberships. Among those teeing off on opening day, from left, are Jen Smith, Ilene Lavoie, Janice Nych, Cheryl Hammond, Lynn Reid, Pam Martin and Beth Hope.

Access difficult for firefighters called to extinguish bush party fire Continued from front
â€œThe destruction and menace created by the boys and their jacked up toys has become not only aggravating but dangerous as well,â€? Papousek wrote in an email to the Chronicle-Guide. â€œWe wait for the next weekend for the trespassing and property destruction to continue unabated for there has not been any concrete solution proposed to stop the irresponsible destruction of our properties.â€? He said flames were still visible onsite the following day and a gusty northwest wind threatened â€œto spark a tinder dry surrounding bush.â€? About 10 firefighters arrived on scene in two vehicles the next afternoon, according to acting Chief Andrew Mohns. He wouldnâ€™t say if the fire was threatening to grow into a large scale burn. He did say it was typical in size to the bush fires they extinguish. A significant obstacle for firefighters is that Canaan Road is unmaintained. Mud bogger trucks and ATVs rip through the dirt road when itâ€™s still wet, creating impassable ruts for emergency vehicles built for pavement. McNab-Braeside Mayor Tom Peckett said firefighters were reduced to using a pick-up truck and trudging in on foot with backpacks to fight the fire. â€œThe neighbours are concerned and Iâ€™m concerned,â€? Peckett said. Council was due to discuss the issue at the May 5 council meeting. However, pav-
Firefighters douse the remaining flames from a two-day fire abandoned after police were notified on the night of April 25. Nearby residents are worried that dry conditions could allow a bonfire to burn out of control, threatening homes and lives.

Sawbridge said. â€œItâ€™s the older people who are drinking and driving.â€? She said the location is â€œsomething on our radarâ€? because of previous calls. OPP has equipment and the ability to reach the party zone if the need arises, but since it was a noise complaint there was less urgency. â€œIf it was a life-threatening occurrence or something like that, we can get ATVs in there,â€? Sawbridge said. â€œSometimes we do respond on foot or set up and wait.â€? The municipality remains under a fire ban burn.

A cruiser was posted at the end of one road and a few liquor warnings were handed out. No one was suspected of driving under the influence, so no drunk driving charges were laid. â€œThatâ€™s not a surprise. Young people are very good about having designated drivers,â€?

Former soldier wins federal Liberal candidacy
Jeff Lehoux won the candidacy in an April 26 vote in Pembroke. Lehoux is a war veteran with humanitarian experience living in Renfrew. He served almost 10 years in the Canadian Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke federal Liberals have selected a candidate to face incumbent Cheryl Gallant in the military, including a stint as medic in Afghanistan. election expected to be called for this October. Returning as an injured (therefore retired) member of the military has given him first-hand knowledge of the emotional, physical, financial and other costs associated with Canada’s veterans, he says. He says he would work to improve the veterans’ affairs department. Lehoux also did humanitarian work in Cameroon to improve infrastructure, even negotiating an agreement between two tribes to share water. 613-264-9600 The Conservatives have made many enemies www.zanderplan.com among the military segment of the electorate.

Former Veteran Affairs Minister Julian Fantino apologized but ultimately was forced to resign after the way he addressed concerns expressed by former soldiers. Gallant also came under sharp criticism after suggesting soldiers with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) should blame themselves. “The stigma that has to be overcome is a stigma within themselves,” Gallant said in the House of Commons on Jan. 30, 2014. Garrison Petawawa is Canada’s largest military base and is in the riding of RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke. Lehoux defeated the only other candidate for the nomination, Renfrew forester Danny Janke, in what party members said was a close vote. Nearly 300 party members attended the nomination selection meeting at the Pembroke Best Western Inn.
PCs members vote for new provincial leader Progressive Conservative members in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke joined those across the province in voting for a new party leader Sunday. The polls, open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., provided the first of two opportunities for party members to vote for either Christine Elliott or Patrick Brown to succeed Tim Hudak. The second voting session is being
held today (Thursday) from 3 to 9 p.m. in polling stations around the province. A total of 76,587 members are eligible to vote. The results will be announced this Saturday, May 9 at the Toronto Congress Centre. “Our party’s rapid growth in membership since the leadership contest was launched in November is a reflection of the hard work of the candidates who have strengthened our
grassroots and attracted tens of thousands of new members,” said party president Richard Ciano in a news release. Ciano said that that unlike the Liberal Party’s policy of selecting a leader by allowing only 2,000 delegates to vote, the Ontario PC Party’s leadership election process “empowers the grassroots members” by giving them all a direct voice.

Big biking good for the heart in Arnprior Scott Campbell
The Heart and Stroke Foundation raised close to $5,000 in their annual Big Bike event in Arnprior on April 27. The event was headquartered at Arnprior District High School, which had one of four teams participating in the ride. The 29-member teams rode a 3-km loop down John Street North onto Elgin and the final stretch to Harriet and back onto Ottawa street to the school. Other Big Bike teams were G.E Hitachi, Walter Zadow and TD Canada Trust.. Heart and Stroke Foundation Big Bike program co-ordinator Charlene Doherty said the bike has been attracting riders for the last 22 years. This season, bikes will be heading to 200 communities in nine provinces. A total of 29 people can take a seat on the Big Bike. “To ride the Big Bike, people have to raise a minimum of $50,” said Doherty. “They usually exceed that.” Registration is already taking place for the event in Arnprior next year. “We could have easily had nine teams taking part this year,” Doherty said. The funds from the ride will go to the foundation for research, the Ottawa Heart Institute and for automated external defibrillators (AEDS) to be placed in schools, churches and locations such as shopping centres. The final tally was $4,641. If you want to register for next year, call Doherty at 613-345-6183.

Bass Pro drops plans for store in the area Brier Dodge, Adam Kveton
Plans to locate a Bass Pro Shop in Kanata have been cancelled. The decision was confirmed by Bass Pro media information co-ordinator Mary Mardis on Monday. “We are not moving forward with the Kanata store at this time,” Mardis said in an email In February, Bass Pro said they were still moving forward with the Kanata store, despite the announcement that Cabela’s, another major outdoor outfitter, was also coming to Kanata. Cabela’s is planned for the west side of the new Tanger Outlets shopping centre and north of the Canadian Tire Centre in a Taggart Realty Management development. “Is Cabela’s still coming?” said Arnprior’s Scott Coady, an active hunter and fisherman, when he heard about the Bass Pro cancellation. “That’s my first reaction, but that’s too bad, because (Bass Pro) is a fantastic establishment.

Work-to-rule campaign likely Continued from front
The Renfrew County public school board said Tuesday that it would have a response to the development later in the day and would keep parents advised through messages posted on the website and distributed through the schools. High-level talks between the union and province reached an impasse last week, leaving the possibility of some sort of strike action a near certainty. Unlike the public secondary school teachers, who have already begun walkouts in three Ontario urban school boards, the ETFO are expected to resort to work-to-rule activities, with teachers no longer taking part in certain aspects of their job. If it comes to pass, the strike action by 76,000 teachers will affect 817,000 Ontario elementary students. In a news release issued on May 5, ETFO president Sam Hammond stated: “We are not going to comment on strike action details publicly until we’ve had an opportunity to communicate with all our members this week … What’s important to realize is that the government and OPSBA want to layer on more bureaucracy into the education system, and compromise the ability of teachers to do what’s best for our students.” According to the ETFO, the bargaining process fell apart due to the province’s demands, which include the removal of class size language from collective agreements, and directions on how teachers should manage their preparation time.
Meanwhile the dispute between the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) and the government has escalated, although the labour action so far has been limited to urban boards. The OSSTF reported Monday that bargaining with the provincial government and its school board partners, represented by the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA), has failed to reach an agreement. “We have been making a concerted effort to move these talks forward, but the management team refuses to recognize the professional judgment of our members and continues to threaten the learning conditions of Ontario students by tabling proposals that will lead to larger class sizes,” said OSSTF president Paul Elliott. At this point, no further bargaining dates have been scheduled. OSSTF says it remains willing and available to go back to the table at any time in the effort to reach a central table agreement. Meanwhile, secondary school teachers in the Peel school district in the Toronto area joined those in Durham and Sudbury on strike Monday., prompting the board to accuse the teachers of refusing to bargain in good faith. Boards and parents are also concerned that Catholic teachers, who will also be in a legal strike position next week, may join their secondary school public board counterparts by walking out of class before the school year ends.

Town ordered to hand over some of its IT information Derek Dunn
Openness at Arnprior town hall is the focus of an ongoing case involving the Information and Privacy Commissioner (IPC) of Ontario. A blank envelope with a print-out of the IPC’s “recent orders” page was recently dropped into the Chronicle-Guide’s mailbox. A sticky note attached said, “Transparency and openness in Arnprior town hall”. The webpage reveals two March 30 decisions against the Corporation of the Town of Arnprior. The two orders, placed by adjudicator Catherine Corban, forced the town to grant information that has been withheld a private citizen (appellant) for about 10 years. “I order the town to disclose the records to the appellant and dismiss the aspect of the appeal dealing with the reasonableness of the town’s search for responsive records,” Corban said. “In my view, it is not evident from the face of the record how its disclosure could reasonably be expected to reveal information that could be used by the affected party’s competitors in future situations.” The case is about the town’s computer system and some of its con-
tents. When chief administrative officer Michael Wildman was hired he found “significant problems” with the system. The server was bound to crash permanently within six months. He produced a report for council detailing the need for adequate equipment and pricing. An information technology firm was hired to find weaknesses and solutions, and to do upgrades. The appellant wanted to see that report. But town staff – on advice from lawyers and following a peer review – denied it. The report contained information about the most sensitive areas of the town’s computer system; along with the physical locations that could be vulnerable to vandalism and theft. Were a hacker to gain access, it could open up private residents’ banking and medical information held in confidence by the town. Anyone who pays utility and other bills online or has special medical conditions that are shared when signing up for an activity at Nick Smith would be at risk. The appellant won the right to see two “very old contracts with a service provider,” Wildman explained. The appellant was not granted permission to learn how the municipal-
ity’s computer server is backed up or how to get into it. “We take people’s privacy very seriously,” Mayor David Reid said. “It’s important to have that trust.” Corban has also ordered additional information from the town to assist in another decision having to do with the same case. Wildman is confident she understands and will agree with the town’s position on protecting the private information of residents, along with the safety of the system. PRIVACY ISSUE
He noted that the Arnprior and District Museum website was recently hacked. (It will migrate to the town’s site.) The National Research Centre and the City of Ottawa had their sites hacked. Vigilance is paramount, he indicated. “It’s a scary world out there for those of us who are not experts in IT,” Wildman said. That said, Reid agreed that a striking the balance between openness with what is being done on the taxpayer’s dime and the protection of citizens private information is a delicate one. “We take accountability and openness and transparency very seriously,” he said. “But there are other
Pitch in Saturday, town asks residents This Saturday, May 9 is the annual Pitch-in Day in Arnprior. The town is encouraging residents to gather together in a spring cleaning exercise. Families and other groups are urged to pick up litter along roadways and in parks from 9 a.m. to noon. To have the trash people collect picked up, call Deanna at the town (613-623-4231, ext. 1832) and register for the Pitch-in effort.
The Town of Arnprior has only one backhoe in its fleet, and it has been used extensively. Age and wear-and-tear have finally caught up to the equipment, Arnprior council was told by staff at its April 27 meeting. Council agreed to go ahead and buy a new backhoe to get ahead of additional and unnecessary costs.
conditions. We don’t want to expose ourselves to risk.” On the openness side, Reid said the widespread and long-time use of “in-camera sessions” – formal council meetings closed to the public – deal strictly with personnel, land acquisition, and legal matters. If a staff member is to be disciplined or fired; if the town is considering how much it will pay for a parcel of land; if it is being sued: these are reasons for incamera sessions. Reid said conversation stays on topic. “The integrity of the process is paramount for this council. We stick to what is relevant,” he said. “I would put my position on the line to anyone who would question that.” Sometimes when a municipality refuses to give up information, a freedom of information (FOI) request is filed. That requires the bureaucracy to follow specific steps and justify its decisions along the way. Wildman says the process removes potential confrontation. “Emotion is removed. We follow the rules and we will never step outside the bounds,” he said. “Just because people ask and we don’t agree that doesn’t have to lead to animosity.” Only a handful of FOIs are filed
per year. Arnprior was among the first municipalities in Ontario to hire an integrity commissioner to deal with complaints. Less than 15 per cent of the province’s 444 municipalities have someone who conducts independent investigations. INTEGRITY COMMISSIONER
“Arnprior is on the cutting edge, for sure,” Wildman said. “We also implemented a code of conduct two years ago. Only about 75 municipalities have implemented theirs.” McNab-Braeside is working through the process to have a code of conduct for both staff and council. Yet another layer of oversight is the provincial ombudsman. The Accountability Act came into being last July. Ontarians are now able to file complaints against municipal governments, universities and school boards. Although Wildman and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario argued against an ombudsman – “It’s a question of having a local watchdog that fits the local conditions” – he is confident that municipalities are more accountable than ever. “Frankly, we are more open and transparent than we’ve ever been.”

Deal with right to die I
tĘźs a topic we all must deal with eventually. But most people avoid talking about death as long as possible. So it wasnĘźt surprising that an Arnprior public education session on ĘťThe Right to Decide End of LifeĘź April 30 only attracted about 15 people. It was unfortunate not more people showed up, as it was a fascinating and important discussion led by a thoughtful and informative three-member panel. The Arnprior Regional Health Ethics Committee deserves praise for organizing the event in the wake of the Supreme Court of Canada decision paving the way to allowing physician-assisted suicide. One woman at the meeting summed up the feelings of many when she said while the unanimous ruling of the court was clear, she is still confused over how the matter will play out for families and health care workers. The panel agreed there are many questions to be answered before the decision comes into effect next February. The public appears to be split between those who intend to decide when their life will end, those who are strongly opposed to any form of euthanasia and the majority who agree those in irremediable pain should be able to end their lives, but are not likely to do it themselves (ItĘźs much like the abortion debate). Likewise, CanadaĘźs doctors appear to be divided among those who feel people in grievous medical distress should have the right to receive help to end their lives, those who feel providing such help would betray their religious or ethical principles, and the majority in the middle who agree some people should have the right to end their lives but in many cases would not be comfortable in providing the lethal injec-
tion themselves. Unfortunately, if the federal government avoid its duty and purposely ignores the Supreme Court ruling, the burden will fall on the countryĘźs physicians. And as ethicist Dr. Rob Butcher said at the Arnprior meeting, theyĘźll all be needing a big hug, for it wonĘźt be easy for them when physician-assisted suicide becomes legal, particularly given the growing number of dementia cases. Not that Butcher expects doctors to be inundated by requests by people to end their lives. There might be a bit of a â€œpentup demandâ€? at the start, but if the European experience is any guide, it will settle down to a small per cent, he said. There are almost 10 months before that happens and perhaps weĘźll be surprised by the politicians. Maybe they will show some courage and leadership by coming up with clear guidelines and safeguards, so as not to foist the burden on doctors and other health care professionals. We hope so. And we hope that families do their duty too and engage in frank discussions about how they feel about the right of loved ones to decide when their lives should end. There are too many horror stories now about physicians caught up in arguments by family members bitterly split over how to care for the bed-ridden and dying. Throwing the right to decide end of life into the mix will make the divisions even more intense. The politicians need to put their differences aside and come to a consensus on how the country should move forward on this issue. And when it comes to individuals, so should families. Ignoring the issue wonĘźt work. ItĘźs not going to go away.

A honey of a tree To the Editor: As you may recall, my father, Doug Scheels, regularly submitted ʻLetters to the Editorʼ and assorted articles to this newspaper. Sometimes the submissions were for the readersʼ information only, i.e. history of the Town of Arnprior. Sometimes the submissions were to motivate the readers, i.e. suggesting people get personally involved in local issues. While other times the articles were to just make you think about life – need I explain further? In addition to Dadʼs love of Arnprior, he was also very passionate about trees. This interest was very evident during the ʻSave the Groveʼ campaign, which he and a number of other local citizens initiated and eventually succeeded in their goals. In the past few years, the number of letters Dad submit-
ted diminished due to his failing health. I had made a promise to him a while ago, however, that I would help him submit one of his favourite articles to the paper for re-publication. Since Dad passed away this past February, I am now keeping that promise which I had made to him. For that reason, I am re-submitting this article entitled ʻA Honey of a Treeʼ on his behalf. Please keep in mind that the article may not contain current statistics as it was originally published by the Ministry of Natural Resources in their ʻYour Forestsʼ magazine (Vol. 9, No. 1) dated Spring 1976. This week Dad would have turned 89 years old … or as he would have likely said “Iʼm 11 years shy of 100!” I hope you enjoy reading one of Doug Scheelsʼ favourite articles.

10 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide - Thursday, May 7, 2015
The April 29 meeting of Renfrew County Council opened, as always, with a prayer. â€œWarden Peter Emon, as per the countyâ€™s procedural bylaw, directed CAO Jim Hutton to lead council in the reading of the prayer,â€? said a news release issued by the county. â€œAt that point County Councillor Jim Gibson called for a â€˜point of privilegeâ€™ and requested that the prayer not be recited in light of the recent decision of the Supreme Court of Canada.â€? Warden Emon thanked Gibson for his request, but ruled the requirements of the procedural bylaw would be upheld, including recitation of the prayer. â€œWe have a procedural bylaw and it hasnâ€™t been repealed nor changed by County Council, and as such it (the prayer) continues to be part of the procedural bylaw,â€? Emon explained. The news release said Gibson, an atheist, then challenged the ruling as he felt that the procedural bylaw is unlawful. To which Emon responded: â€œAt this time Iâ€™m not considering changing my ruling. I do not see it as unlawful, but I would suggest we go forward, thank you.â€? â€œCouncillor Gibson did not receive a seconder for his appeal, therefore his appeal was not allowed and County council continued as per normal procedure,â€? the release noted. Emon had earlier indicated he might
second Gibsonâ€™s motion in order to get it on the table but said he decided against it. â€œI gave it a lot of thought and decided not to,â€? said Emon. Gibsonâ€™s original motion described county chambers as his workplace, which it is not. â€œHeâ€™s not an employee,â€? said Emon. Under the Notice of Motions later in the meeting, no seconder came forward to support the notice of motion submitted by Gibson in March to eliminate the prayer. Under the new business portion of the meeting. Emon suggested â€œin light of the recent Supreme Court of Canada ruling, that under section 51 of the Procedural Bylaw County Council could temporarily suspend the rules of procedure to have a discussion to instruct staff to if we want to respond to the Supreme Court ruling.â€? County council voted to temporarily suspend the procedural rules to discuss the issue. Emon offered four options: 1) suspend the prayer, 2) do nothing, 3) suspend the prayer pending further legal opinion, and 4) continue with the prayer pending further legal opinion. â€œAfter much discussion a motion was put forward that staff be directed to seek legal advice with regards to the recent Supreme Court of Canada decision on the Countyâ€™s Procedural Bylaw related to prayer.â€? The procedural bylaw with regard to the recitation of the prayer was then re-instated.
â€œI felt the Supreme Court decision was significant enough that council should discuss it and also give direction to staff,â€? said Emon. While that decision dealt with a city in Quebec, it could certainly have ramifications across the country, he said. The decision did clearly say the 2004 decision relating to the County of Renfrew was distinct, added Emon. â€œThe fact they didnâ€™t overturn it or disassemble that judgment was reassuring enough to continue with it,â€? he said. County staff will have a look at the argument that was presented in the Supreme Court. Among the points of debate will be whether the prayer the county says before meetings is sufficiently non-denominational. Community and community values didnâ€™t get much play. â€œThatâ€™s one thing Iâ€™d like to see explained in a little greater detail,â€? said Emon. â€œWas the view of the community considered in the Supreme Court decision? This practice is pretty important for our community.â€? It will likely be June before the issue returns to council, said Emon. â€œIâ€™d like to reiterate just how impressed I was with council,â€? said Emon. â€œIt is an emotional issue that has caused a lot of thought by council and members of the community. Everyone was very respectful.â€?

Spring is a busy time for Beavers With the recent rise in temperatures have come major changes to the local landscape. Spring wildflowers now carpet local woods and bird music rises from every habitat. Virtually all of our frogs, even those that slept away winter buried in the bottom muck of local ponds, are belting out their distinctive love songs. Frenzied activity is everywhere. In open fields Wild Turkey toms strut their goods. Overhead, Red-winged Blackbirds play tag with any large bird that trespasses into their air space. And in wetlands all through

Currently Beavers are fixing up their lodges in preparation for the next batch of youngsters, which will be arriving soon. washed out from the famed castor sacs. In addition, Beavers deposit an oily substance released from the anal glands. These two cocktails give each Beaver its own chemical fingerprint, and the postings tell wandering Beavers to stay away. In addition to all of the hard work, Beavers are also taking time to enjoy the fresh bounty of spring. They are eagerly grazing newly sprouted grasses and sedges, and devouring the bark from fresh branches of willows and other trees harvested near the water’s edge.

The males are also busy marking their territory. They do this by posting olfactory ‘no trespassing’ signs all around the pond. Mud dredged up from the bottom is deposited in piles at strategic spots along the shore and on the dam. The Beaver then squats over a mound and urinates on it, the urine carrying strong-smelling castoreum
When they are not eating or building things, Beavers are spending a lot of time grooming their luxurious coat of fur. After all, when it comes to appearances, Beavers really do give a damn! For the next three weeks I will be sending my columns from Jasper National Park where I will be working on a Moose documentary. With Grizzly and Black bears also looking for the Moose that I will be following, this trip could be unbearably exciting! The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.
Great Reasons to Visit
This is an exceptionally busy time for Beavers. The adults are constantly repairing their structures. Dams and lodges require upkeep and fresh mud and woody material is regularly added. At this time of year beavers are still adding branches after the sun has risen (most of their activity takes place at night). Frequently a double-carry is used; mud is held against the chest by the front legs, and branches are dragged while held in their mouth. Some of the lodge renovations take place because the next generation is soon to arrive. Most established colonies contain three generations of Beavers. There is the adult pair that started off the colony, the young from the previous year, and usually two or three “teenagers” approaching their second birthday. The latter seldom get to celebrate the upcoming birthday in the family pond. Some depart on their own volition, but many are “encouraged” to leave by the adults. At times this gets nas-

Paramedics urge MPPs to support workers affected by trauma Staff
Renfrew County Paramedics joined dozens more from all across Ontario at Queen’s Park Tuesday to lobby for help for their members suffering from
work-related stress. The Paramedics urged MPPs from all three political parties to support legislation, namely, Bill 2, making it much easier for paramedics profoundly affected by acute and chronic exposure
to traumatic events to receive benefits. Bill 2 proposes changes to the Workplace Safety Insurance Act that would recognize post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a work-related injury
for paramedics and other emergency responders. “As it stands now, paramedics often deal with the effects of trauma on their own,” said Chris Day, a Renfrew County paramedic and acting chair of
Please join us for Please join us for our annual our annual
the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario paramedic workers committee. “Many feel abandoned. It’s important that PTSD is considered a work-related injury. “I look at it as a tool box,” said Day. “Bill 2 is one of the tools that will give first responders the ability to receive the treatment they need, without having to worry about the financial barriers.” Although employee assistance programs can provide some support, there’s often a cap on how much help a first responder can access. Day explained his group scheduled presentations with the MPPs in the morning, meetings in the afternoon and then attended question period. Along with Bill 2, the CUPE group addressed the Fire Medic program. “We feel paramedics need to be responding in
ambulances as well as first response vehicles,” said Day. “We are the professionals with the level of training, skills and equipment to provide excellent patient care and not just arriving on scene ahead of somebody.” Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MPP John Yakabuski has been supportive of the efforts, said Day. “I met with John back in February and had a very positive and fruitful conversation and he is very much in support of Bill 2,” said Day. “He is all for getting Bill 2 passed and it being one of the tools that is necessary to help first responders.” Members of the public can help by contacting their local MPPs and there is a petition, so far containing 4,500 signatures, that can be signed. Contact Day at email@example.com to find out how to sign the petition.

Arnprior’s Nick Smith Centre is going to the dogs this weekend. The Arnprior Canine Association’s annual show takes over both arenas Friday through Sunday (May 8-10). Hundreds of dogs of many different breeds and their owners will take part, vying to be best in show. Among the specialty
shows this year is the Softcoated Wheaten Terrier show at 10 a.m. Saturday and the Dachshund Club show at 1 p.m. Saturday. There is also an all-breed sweepstakes Saturday and a junior handling competition Sunday at noon. With about 700 entries, the three-day show will provide a major boost to Arnprior businesses.
Arnprior to host blood donor clinic May 13 With people flooding into the outdoors to enjoy the arrival of warm weather (finally), there is bound to be accidents and the need for blood will almost certainly grow. With that in mind, Canadian Blood Services is urging donor to book an appointment for next week’s Arnprior clinic.
As usual, the Rotary Club of Arnprior will be sponsoring the clinic, which is scheduled for Wednesday, May 13 at the Nick Smith Centre. Donors can book an appointment between 1:30 and 4 p.m. and 5 and 6:30 p.m. by calling 1-888-2366283 or online at www. blood.ca.
Arnprior thanks first responders Arnprior Council passed a resolution on April 27 declaring May 1 First Responders Day in town. On April 29, Mayor David Reid followed up by visiting with Arnprior Volunteer firefighters at their training session to acknowledge and thank them for all their hard work and efforts to serve the community on behalf of the residents of the Town of Arnprior. In a news release, the town thanked all first responders “who have dedicated their lives to public service where their life-saving skills often make the difference between life and death.”
Photos by Derek Dunn/Metroland
The town pointed out that the first responders are those men and women who, in the early stages of an emergency, are responsible for the protection and preservation of life, property, evidence and the environment. They include police officers, firefighters, military personnel, paramedics, medical evacuation pilots, dispatchers, nurses, doctors, emergency medical technicians and emergency managers. First responders and their service to the public deserves to be recognized and honoured, says the town. “We encourage you to take a moment and thank your local first responders.”
McNab-Braeside fire chief Dave Hartwick presents the 20-year service pin to Andrew Mohns. Mayor Tom Peckett thanked Mohns for his decades of dedication to McNabBraeside as a member of the fire department.

Rural areas push for expanded natural gas service With a petition circulating about Renfrew County asking for expanded natural gas coverage, the provincial government has announced funding to increase access in Ontario. Natural gas will be extended to some areas of the province through the Natural Gas Access Loan and the Natural Gas Economic Development Grant program. The program as â€œto lower prices, help businesses and create jobs,â€? says the government in a news release.
Increased natural gas access, through the $200 million Natural Gas Access Loan and $30 million Natural Gas Economic Development Grant, will attract new industry, make commercial transportation and agriculture more affordable, help to create jobs, provide more energy choices and will lower electricity prices for businesses and consumers across Ontario, maintains the government. In the coming year, the province will reach out to communities to seek input on the design of the natu-
ral gas programs and will encourage communities to partner with utilities to bring forward expansion plans. As well, the Ontario Energy Board is accepting proposals for natural gas expansion projects. Applicants are invited to identify options that would address any regulatory impediments and the board will consider these options as part of its review. Consultations will take place with a diverse range of stakeholders, including farmers, utilities, municipalities, businesses and Ontario families â€œExpanding natural gas access will

and feedstock for many Ontario industries, including manufacturing and petrochemicals. If the province is looking to extend natural gas to rural areas, why not to Renfrew County residents and farmers? Admaston-Bromley council is circulating a petition it received from 50 of its residents appealing to the province to extend natural gas accessibility in agricultural areas. It has sent the petition to the provincial government, Association of Municipalities of Ontario and the Eastern Ontario Warden Caucus.

Pennyâ€™s Fudge Factory reopened today, May 1, and carrying on the tradition couldnâ€™t be sweeter for Vic and Carol Bode. The Pakenham couple, who also own Scoops Ice Cream and Carnivic Lodge bed and breakfast, purchased Pennyâ€™s from former owners Syd and Judy Gravel after the Gravels announced their retirement last year. â€œWe didnâ€™t want to see this place close,â€? said Vic. â€œIâ€™m happy we have the opportunity to carry on the tradition.â€? For Carol, itâ€™s a coming-home. A just-retired Catholic school teacher, she began her career as a music instructor at St. Michaelâ€™s School in Fitzroy. â€œIt feels like my life has come full circle â€“ Iâ€™m back,â€? said Carol, whoâ€™s also involved with Rural Root Theatre. â€œThe way I see it, I didnâ€™t retire; I changed jobs.â€? In keeping with tradition, the Gravels taught the Bodes their secrets to making perfect fudge and peanut brittle. â€œIn March, Judy and Syd spent two days teaching us how to make fudge,â€? said Vic. â€œFudge is brand new to meâ€? but, he added that employees Beatriz Bednarek, whoâ€™s worked at Pennyâ€™s for eight years, and new manager Cheryl Hughes, both have a real knack and passion for it. â€œMy father taught me, â€˜Always hire people smarter than you,â€™â€? said Vic. â€œWeâ€™re hoping for a very successful season. I want it to be a comfortable workplace and continue the expectations and traditions (of Pennyâ€™s). The work fun has to be in there

The Wild to perform Monday evening show in Arnprior Monday evening is not the usual evening for a rock show. However, the John St. Pub in Arnprior isnâ€™t deterred, bringing in The Wild, a four-piece band of rock and rollers from B.C. for a show Monday, May 11. The bandâ€™s sound has been described as â€œthe bastard son of AC/DC and ZZ Top,â€? says their publicist David Berardi. â€œThese guys are loud rock and roll with a hard bluesy twist and an attitude that is purely punk rock.â€? The bandâ€™s songs â€˜Party Till Youâ€™re Deadâ€™ and â€˜Straight to Hellâ€™ sums up the membersâ€™ attitude, he added. The Wild has toured with One Bad Son, an-
other band that rocked a sold-out The John St. Pub a few months ago â€œCome kick off summer the right way Â–â€Żwith a night of cold beer and loud rock and roll,â€? says Berardi. Opening for The Wild will be Ottawaâ€™s own Hellbros, known for their fist-pumping, highenergy rock and roll. Set to release a follow up EP to their full length â€˜Goodtime Machineâ€™, Hellbros have their sights set on touring the U.S. and Europe to unveil their loud and abrasive rock and roll. Tickets for the show cost $7 in advance and $10 at the door and are available at Steve and Denniâ€™s Restaurant.

Credit Union donation rewards creativity at the Arnprior library Children were buzzing inside the Lego lounge of the Arnprior Public Library on April 28. Northern Credit Union was giving $500 to the library. The Credit Union has consistently contributed to the library for quite some time, said children’s librarian Carolyn Swayze. The funds have gone towards new legos for the collection and to game nights for
the kids. Swayze added. The lounge is open for an hour for those five years old and up. he popularity of the program has it expanded to two days a month instead of just one. “We donate the money to help with children’s learning and this is a good cause,” said Wayne Lavallee, a delegate chair for the Arnprior branch of the Northern Credit Union.

Top barrel racer to compete in Arnprior Stampede One of Canada’s best barrel racers is among the many top-notch rodeo competitors coming to Arnprior for the Stampede June 13-14. Mandy Peidl is a “dynamite rider,” says
Stampede director Glen Howard, who is promoting the rodeo for the Arnprior Agricultural Society, which is bringing the event to Arnprior for the first time. Howard said he first met Mandy when she started on the rodeo circuit in 2012. He took

photographs of her when she wowed the crowds when competing in Lombardy near Smith Falls. The 25-year-old from Straffordville, Ontario has earned many honours in her first three years on the rodeo circuit. They include 2012 Ontario rodeo rookie of the year, 2013 Ontario finals rodeo barrel racing champ, 2013 Ontario rodeo association year-end champion, 2013 Ontario barrel horse of the year, 2014 Ontario finals rodeo champion, 2014 A-K rodeo series champ, 2014 Jake Walker memorial champ and 2014 barrel horse of the year. Peidl has been barrel racing since she was very young, starting out competing in National Barrel Horse Association events. She didn’t get into rodeo until 2012 after
graduating university. This summer she planns to make stops in 30 to 40 towns throughout the U.S., Quebec and Ontario, including Arnprior. Her main goal this year is to make the international finals rodeo in Oklahoma City, she says. “I owe a great deal of my success to my super supportive mother, who growing up always mounted me with great horses that taught me so much, and, of course, my amazing friends and travel companions whose support and encouragement makes getting down the rodeo road so much easier and enjoyable. “And finally my amazing little red horse named Tippy who I’d be nothing without.” For more details about the Arnprior Stampede, visit www.arnpriorstampede.com.

The Town of Mississippi Mills has chosen to listen to its voters. At its regular meeting on April 21, Mississippi Mills committee-of-the-whole voted to support the creation of a bylaw to change the composition of council from 11 to seven members in 2018 â€“ upholding the views of their voters in the process. Mississippi Mills council currently has 11 members: a mayor, four councillors for Almonte ward, four councillors for Ramsay ward and two councillors for Pakenham ward. The town has been wrestling with the idea of changing the composition of council since an operational review of the administration department in 2000. The firm conducting the study, Wilson and Wade, recommended that council be reduced to seven members: a mayor, a deputy mayor, two councillors for Almonte ward, two councillors for Ramsay ward and one for Pakenham ward. Since then, two further studies have recommended the same change. In 2004, the issue was revisited and public consultation supported the same structure of seven members. Then, most recently, an operational review of the town in 2012 and 2013 also dealt with the issue of the size of council. Both internal and public consultation addressed the topic through surveys and interviews. The study found that 75 per cent of town staff supported a reduction in councilâ€™s size, as did the major-
ity of council and community representatives. committee-of-the-whole voted on a recommenEven more telling: less than half of residents dation to create the necessary bylaw to change surveyed claimed they were satisfied by the the size and composition of council ahead of current composition of council. the 2018 election.

Winter highway maintenance lacking, report indicates
It was no surprise to the people in Renfrew County that winter highway maintenance needs to be better, says Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski. The Auditor General’s report on Winter Highway Maintenance, released last week, found that in 2009 a significant change was made to how the Transportation Ministry handled its contracting process. While the change has been successful in reducing and containing winter highway maintenance expenditures, it has done so at the cost of Ontario’s roads not being as well-maintained in the winter as they used to be. In essence, over the past five years, winter highway maintenance service levels have declined from the level that Ontarians have historically been used to, says the report.
Yakabuski noted that the report confirms the ministry’s performance-based contracts introduced in 2009 were initiated for no other reason but to save money, meaning contracts to the lowest bidder, and contractors with inadequate equipment failing to meet already extended road clearing standards from two to eight hours following snow. “Issues surrounding less equipment, and supplies used by the contractors prevented timely road cleaning, but the fact is that it was the ministry that dictated the standards and the level of service,” said Yakabuski. He added that “it’s government’s job to ensure equipment levels and service standards maintain the safety of Ontario motorists, yet for a $36-million dollar savings, the Liberal government made the decision to waive that responsibility, placing the safety and lives of Ontarians at risk.”
The Liberal Government, with their risky contract process, created this mess and it is up to them to fix it, he said. “We will be watching closely the next time the snow flies.” ‘LESS SAFE’
Meanwhile, the NDP say the Auditor-General’s “scathing” report on Ontario’s winter road maintenance proves that privatization has failed. “The Auditor-General has shown that our roads, particularly in the North, have become less safe under the Liberal government,” said Timmons-James Bay MPP Gilles Bisson. “Just think what it will happen if they privatize Hydro One.” The switch to ‘Area Maintenance Contracts’ meant that ministry staffers would no longer
decide when to deploy snowplows or apply road salt. Instead, these decisions would be left up to the private contractor, noted Bisson. In a statement made after the report was releasesd, Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca admitted the report “has confirmed what we already knew, despite the improvements we have made – the additional equipment, additional oversight and organizational changes – the current system of winter highway maintenance needs to be better.” He pointed out that the provincial budget includes funding for more spreaders for both urban congested areas and select locations in northern Ontario, and funding to improve driving conditions with the increased use of deicing liquids. “We are also taking swift action on the Auditor’s recommendations, with several to be in place by the start of next winter,” he said.
MPP’s effort to get rural areas share of gas tax stymied again Staff
Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski’s efforts to have the gas tax shared with rural municipalities has hit a red light once again. In a news release last Friday, Yakabuski expressed his frustration that the Liberals and NDP joined forces to defeat his private members’ bill, entitled Gasoline Tax Fairness for All Act, 2014. If passed, the Bill would have distributed gas tax revenue to all 444 Ontario municipalities. Currently, gas tax revenue from the
province is only distributed to municipalities with public transportation systems, even though everybody pays the tax. “This is just another example of the Liberal and NDP parties working together to deny rural Ontarians the rebate money and infrastructure opportunities they so desperately need,” Yakabuski said. “By voting to maintain the current approach to the gasoline tax, they’ve renewed their commitment to punishing the province’s rural communities. “I was not going to re-introduce this bill, but had to once the Liberals opted

again not to address this wrong with their 2015 budget,” explained Yakabuski. He has attempted several times to have the act approved. “Rural municipalities continue to be treated unfairly by the province’s gas tax rebate system.” In contrast, the federal government understands this “fundamental tenet of fairness” by allocating its gas tax rebate to all municipalities in Ontario for the purpose of maintaining local infrastructure, he pointed out. “The provincial government needs to adopt the federal gas tax rebate system and finally show some respect for
the rural communities. Instead, they are ignoring rural people and continue to make life harder for them with their new carbon tax on everything that will take even more money out of their pockets,” said Yakabuski. Included in the proposed Gasoline Tax Fairness for All Act was a mechanism to provide stable, predictable funding. By voting against the act, the Liberal and NDP parties have denied rural Ontarian’s a plan to bring fundamental fairness to how the provincial government distributes the gasoline tax, said Yakabuski.

L’Arche founder earns top humanitarian award To the delight of the Arnprior L’Arche community, L’Arche founder Jean Vanier has been awarded the prestigious Templeton Prize. Valued at about $1.7 million (U.S.), the prize is one of the world’s largest annual awards given to an individual. It honors a living person who has made exceptional contributions to affirming life’s spiritual dimension, whether through insight, discovery, or practical works. L’Arche, founded by Vanier, is a ground-breaking international network of communities where people with and without intellectual disabili-
ties live and work together as peers. Vanier, the son of a former Canadian Governor General, joins a distinguished group of 44 former recipients, including Mother Teresa, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and the Dalai Lama. When he founded L’Arche in France in 1964, Vanier, now 86, discovered that those people whom society typically considers of least value enable the strong to recognize and welcome their own vulnerability and to grow in their humanity. Five years later, the first Canadian community, L’Arche Daybreak was founded in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
In 1972, Vanier co-founded Faith and Light, which is now a worldwide network supporting families with members who have an intellectual disability. Worldwide, there are now 147 L’Arche communities in 35 countries on five continents. Twenty-nine communities are in Canada, spread from Comox Valley to Cape Breton and including Arnprior. In remarks prepared for the award announcement, Vanier made a plea for global peace, saying, “Before being Christians or Jews or Muslims, before being Americans or Russians

Templeton, Jr. and granddaughter of Sir John Templeton, noted: “By recognizing the importance of every individual, regardless of their station in life, Jean Vanier underscores how each of us has the ability not only to lift up others, but also ourselves ... His powerful message and practice of love has the potential to change the world for the better, just as it has already changed the lives of countless individuals who have been touched by this extraordinary man.”

An open letter to our fans, from the Ottawa Senators What a ride! The last two - plus months have been an incredible run, as our team came together to overcome the greatest deficit in NHL history to qualify for the playoffs. This year, we had a major loss within our family and fought battles both on and off the ice. We stuck together and persevered knowing we could achieve our goals. In February, when the odds were stacked against us, this team started to roll. When we starte d to win, we could feel that something special was happening. We couldn’t put our finger on it at the time, but knew it was different. We know you felt it too – we know this because once the team started the run, you wouldn’t let us quit. You were loud and supportive at home. You filled Canadian Tire Centre during the team’s road games, and the crowd waiting for us at the airport when we arrive d from Philadelphia blew us away. You changed the mood of the entire city. You pushe d us to keep going when the odds were against us and we responded. Game 6 may not have gone our way, but the ovation you gave us before we left the ice was one of the most incredible moments of the entire season. As we leave to go our separate ways for the summer, we want you to know this – there has never been a Senators team more excited for next year. Thank you, fans! Sincerely, Your 2014-15 Ottawa Senators

ADHS teams kick off soccer season with two straight wins Scott Campbell
The warmer weather brings with it the start of soccer. And it’s been quite the start for both Arnprior District High School teams who have proven early that they will challenge for Renfrew County titles and more this season. The senior girls played their first game of the season on home field against the Madawaska Valley District High School on April 28. ADHS proved the victors by a final score of 2-0, as Lauren Hass, and Kelsey scored the goals in the Upper Ottawa Valley School Athletic Association game. It was followed up by a 6-1 win for the ADHS boys team against MVDHS. Bryce Walker and John Young starred offensively as both players scored two goals each. The hot streak continued with another set of games on April 30 against Opeongo. The boys won 9-0. Ryan Massoud who played in his first game of the season, scored four goals. The girls won 5-1 in their match. ALUMNI GAME May 16
Nathan Woods, coach of both the girls and boys soccer teams, is optimistic both squads will go far this
season. Back in 2012, the ADHS boys team had a “phenomenal season, it went very well,” said Woods. “It was the first time a (Arnprior soccer) team made it to OFSAA.” At the Ontario Federation Schools Athletic Association championships, ADHS came away with the top sportsmanship award and has a banner to remember the accomplishment. Many of that team’s players will return to the ADHS soccer field Saturday, May 16 for the second annual alumni game. The ‘Wolf lads’, the nickname he has given the players, will be challenged by Woods’ current team. The public is urged to take in the alumni match at 4 p.m. at Arnprior District High School. “There will be a trophy done up and we will be collecting money for the soccer teams,” explained Woods. Local footballer, Kris Twardek, who has signed his first professional contract with the Millwall Lions team out of England, will be making a return trip to coach at the alumni game. “He won’t be able to play because he is a pro,” said Woods. “But his desire to come says something.” The alumni team will be defending their win in last year game, which ended 3-1. “It will be a good community
event,” promised Woods. Woods recently wrapped up his season with the Ottawa Valley Soccer Academy at the Kenwood Athletic Club. With the help from his son Jake and Dave Tate, the three have guided about 80 players in the program from October through April. The popularity has grown so much that Woods intends to offer classes five days a week when fall arrives. The level of soccer has improved as well. There are girls in Grade 7-8 who actually got a win against the high school girls in a match. It’s getting to the point that numerous kids have grown up through the academy and have reached the high school stage, said Woods. Students have also been sent to Ottawa to be able to play the same kind of soccer that matches their talent. In the last three years, a player from Arnprior has landed in the top three for best soccer players in the Ottawa area. “It’s about creating a dynasty,” said Woods. “The goal is to win at OFSAA, which has never been done ADHS soccer player Margaret Mackenzie kicks the ball with Kathryn in Arnprior.” Stanton in background in action against Madawaska Valley.

Hockey program to train all new parents to respect the game Brier Dodge
A new respect in hockey program will launch next season for all minor hockey clubs who are a part of Hockey Eastern Ontario. The announcement was made at the Richcraft Sensplex on April 20 by Hockey Eastern Ontario officials and representatives from the Respect Sport Group.
One parent or guardian for every player in the initiation and novice levels in Hockey Eastern Ontario clubs will be required to take the one hour, online course every year. A parent or guardian of a new registrant up to the midget level (17 year olds), will be required to take the course once. The $12 cost will fall to each individual who takes the course, unless the hockey association bulk purchases access codes and includes these
as part of the fee in registration costs. The course will cover a variety of topics, ranging from injury prevention and how to have positive relationships with coaches and referees, to how to deal with abuse or harassment. Mark Allen, from Respect Sport Group, said ideally the entire family would take the course, though it’s only mandatory for one parent or guardian to take the course.
It’s already mandated in many province’s hockey programs, including Manitoba, where the Respect Sport Group’s first program, one designed for coaches, first started. Coaches requested a unit be developed for parents, which was launched with Hockey Calgary. Respect Sport Group was co-founded by Sheldon Kennedy, who attended the Ottawa announcement.

A bi-weekly guide on how to manage debt
At Doyle Salewski, we help people just like you every day.
Q: What is a tax lien, and what do I do if one is registered against my home? When you owe money to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), they will try to collect that debt from you. If the debt is significant and you don’t repay it or negotiate acceptable terms, CRA has the right to place a lien on your home or other property such as a cottage. This does not mean you will immediately lose that property, and there are steps you can take to have the lien removed. How does a tax lien work?
Madawaska Golf Club’s new director of golf Andrew Dick at the first hole of Twisted Pines.
Madawaska Golf Club adds new golf director In an effort to improve its service to golfers and their experience at the Madawaska Golf course, the club recently introduced Andrew Dick as the its new director of golf. “I’m more than excited to be the new director of golf here at the wonderful Madawaska Golf Club,” Dick said. “I am a strong believer in an overall experience for golfers when they are spending their day on the course.” Dick spent the last four years as the manager of the Dragonfly Golf Links in Renfrew where he was born, raised and lives with his wife and two children. Despite his Renfrew blood, Dick is excited to be in the Arnprior-West Carleton area and at the Madawaska Golf Club. “The main goal for us at Madawaska is to generate excitement for the golfers and the members,” he said. “I’m excited about joining a family-run business. I am really excited about the
opportunities Sumac Grove (Madawaska’s executive course) provides, which is perfect for families, beginners, novice or even advanced golfers looking to hone their target golf skills.” Dick has brought with him a wealth of ideas to share with day golfers and course members. “I bring with me years of expert customer service, social media, measurement and management and management skills that I look forward to using and enhancing your golfing experience while you are here,” Dick said. “I look forward to working closely with all of the Madawaska Golf community – if you have any suggestions, comments or just want to give a plain old hello and g’day, please feel free to stop into the pro shop, shoot me an email at email@example.com or a phone call at 613-623-3852. I am here for you the golfer.”
A tax lien operates like any other lien. It is a legal claim against your property that will remain in place until you either pay the debt or the property is sold. If the property is sold, proceeds are first applied to selling costs, property taxes and mortgages, then to the CRA debt. Can CRA take my house away from me? Technically, yes. However, it is not CRA’s policy to leave anyone homeless. If the property is your primary residence, you will have ample opportunity to find other payment sources. If significant time passes and you still don’t make payment arrangements, CRA may issue a Writ of Seizure and Sale, which is your final warning. If you continue to avoid paying your arrears, CRA may seize the property and you may be forced to leave. In the case of a cottage or vacation home, CRA will most likely sell the property and apply the net proceeds to your tax debt. How can I know if CRA has registered a lien against my property? CRA usually sends you a letter to tell you they’ve registered a certificate of arrears in Federal Court. This lets you know that they intend to place a lien against your property,
If you owe a significant amount of money to the CRA and you suspect they may have placed a lien against your home, you can do a title search at the Land Registry Office. Bottom line: you can remove tax liens by: 1. Negotiating a payment plan directly with CRA. Once your tax arrears are paid in full, they will remove the lien. 2. Selling your home and use the net proceeds to pay your CRA debt. If the net proceeds don’t cover the CRA debt in full, you must make arrangements to pay the remainder. 3. Filing a consumer proposal with a licensed Trustee. While this will not remove the lien immediately, a clause can be included that requires CRA to lift the lien when the proposal is completed. Of course, CRA must agree to the proposal —something that will depend on the amount of tax debt you owe and your proposal payment plan. Tax arrears are serious. If you have unpaid income taxes, whether or not you already have a CRA lien in place against your home, it’s important that you take immediate action to prevent additional problems. If you are burdened with debt stress, asking for sound advice is a sign of strength and the smart thing to do. Asking sooner rather than later is always better.

Arnprior Ducks Unlimited banquet sold out once again Scott Campbell
The Arnprior committee of Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) has been hosting a fundraising banquet for five years now. The popularity of the dinner and auctions has proven itself over that time, with yet another sold-out event April 24 at the Nick Smith Centre. “We had 230 people attending with quite a large waiting list,” said committee member Stephen Dolan. “This number has grown significantly from 150, just five years ago. “Dinner was a spectacular hip of beef buffet catered by Riley’s catering. After dinner came the interactive and live auction and our unique highflyer auction.” There was a silent auction on the go to attract guests before the dinner even took place. Dolan noted that most of the items up for auction were high-quality DUC branded merchandise and many had outdoor themes. Framed prints by many well-known artists were up
for grabs, a few firearms and also big ticket items such as leather recliners. “Ducks Unlimited is a nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving, restoring and managing wetlands,” said Dolan. “(These) are some of the most beneficial ecosystems for not only waterfowl, but other flora, fauna and people. They undertake many wetland projects by either purchasing the land or working with private land owners to create or improve wetland habitat.” CARP RIVER WORK
Back in December, DUC committed to a 25-year maintenance contract along with a contribution of $250,000 to rehabilitate a portion of the Carp River. Dinners, such as the one in Arnprior, help with obtaining the necessary funds to assist in such endeavours. “They need acquire funds from many sources, fundraising dinners being a primary source,” explained Dolan. “There are hundreds of committees across Canada that hosted numerous events, mostly dinner auctions, but

“There are 21 people on the fundraising staff and 6,500 volunteers nationally,” said Binch. “There are 108 events (like Arnprior’s) across the province and it is all community-based and for wetland

“We all collaborate over the months leading up to the event to sell tickets, garner sponsors and plan,” said Dolan. “I should also mention many of our wives are integral in helping the event run smoothly and my wife (Lacey) looks after the decorating of the hall.” “We also have people here from Arnprior, Ottawa, Pembroke and Richmond,” said Chris Coady, who gave credit to his wife Teresa for her work.

A community out like this, it’s a force of people for conservation.” Fortune noted that DUC has a dedicated group that includes a great many hunters and fishermen. Sponsors are a very important part of the events success. “Many local businesses give graciously to supply prizes for attendees and funds to help underwrite the cost of the function,” said Dolan.

May 24 was the gateway to summer activities and traditions It was especially warm that April. The snow had long since gone, and the days were warm enough that the roads were no longer muddy ruts, and we could even see Spring buds coming out on the trees. Our winter clothes, including our hateful long underwear, had been packed away, and we could smell the mothballs Mother had generously scattered into the trunk in the upstairs hall where our wool sweaters and other heavy clothing would sit out the hot summer months. The creek at the bottom of the West Hill had receded, and the Bonnechere had settled into a gently ﬂowing river cutting through the lower reaches of our farm. Spring was warm enough to be called Summer, and that was all it took for my three brothers to decide it was now time to go swimming in the Bonnechere, even though the month of May had yet to begin. Of course, Mother put the kibosh on that idea! There would be no

summer would be half over, and that would be the end of swimming! My older and much wiser sister Audrey and I headed for the swing in the grape arbour. The leaves were yet to come out, but the vines were thick enough that the sun had yet to penetrate. I thought, since I seldom had Audrey all to myself, that this would be a good time to ask her what was so important about the 24th of May. “Well,” Audrey said leaning back in the old wood swing, “Mother says a lot of things should wait until the 24th of May, and a lot of things change on that day too.” I waited for Audrey to speak. She looked like she was falling asleep. I was sitting across from her, and I nudged her with the toe of my shoe. “Iʼm thinking. Iʼm thinking,” she said. And then she rhymed off a few things, which made little sense to me, but obviously were important to Mother. “Well, you will see that Mother never wears a summer hat to church until the 24th of May. She said in New York any woman caught wearing a summer hat before the 24th of May would be considered a woman of poor taste.” Audrey took a long breath. “And you certainly wouldnʼt wear white gloves before then for the same reason. And that same goes for summer shoes too.” I was mulling over this bit of news
in my mindʼs eye. For the life of me I couldnʼt understand why a date on a calendar was so important. And then Audrey reminded me of the many little ﬂat wood boxes of sprouted seeds in the kitchen waiting to be put into the garden. “Never, ever, has Mother transplanted those boxes until after the 24th of May. Youʼre too young to remember, but one year she planted every last box, and two days later, the frost came, and killed every last one of the plants.” I had no idea what plants getting hit with frost, wearing a summer hat and white gloves and summer shoes, and swimming in the Bonnechere all had to do with the 24th of May. Audrey started to doze off in the swing. I mulled over all she had said, and I ﬁgured, next to Easter and Christmas, the 24th of May must surely be one of the most important days of the year. I couldnʼt wait for that date to roll around, and I decided right then and there, I would write in my diary all that had happened on that date so that years down the road, I would remember what an important day it was when I was very young.

Arnprior Lionettes attend district rally hosted by Shawville firstname.lastname@example.org
Lionettes from all over the region, including Arnprior, recently gathered for a district rally that has been going on for 54 years. This year was Shawville’s turn to play host on April 26 at the R.A Hall in the town. The members of the Arnprior Lionettes were among the 75 women present for the occasion. Arnprior had played host of the rally last year. There were also Lionettes from Stittsville, Quyon and Bryson who made the trip to Shawville. Three members of the Pontiac Lionettes were invited for a final gathering, as the group made the decision to disband within the past year. The hostesses for the day were all from the Shawville Lionettes - Monique Atkinson, Betty Brownlee, Marshallene Campbell, Marguerite Carmichael, Fran Finan, Joan Gray, Jane Hayes, Lorraine Hodgins, Sylvia Poisson Hodgins, Faye Howard, Laurie Howard, Claire Lafleur, Sandra Murray, Darleen Murray, Bonnie Potvin, Ann Rogers, Jean Smith, Katharine Summerfield, Beth Tubman, Florence Way and Judy Young. The Shawville group also made
up the biggest crowd of all the Lionettes. All Lionettes are volunteers, which spotlights the saying, ‘Volunteers are not paid - not because they are worthless ... but because they are priceless!’ NEPAL ADVENTURE
The guest speaker for the event was Virginia Schwartz, who had spent some time growing up in the Shawville area. Schwartz told stories of her love of travel, specifically her trip to Nepal last fall, which made headlines across the country and overseas. The attempt to climb in the Annapurna Circuit was hindered when an avalanche hit - Schwartz said it was actually more like nine - that led her and her friend, Jane van Criekingen, to be called missing. The lack SCOTT CAMPBELL/METROLAND of communication in the area meant Arnprior Lionettes attending the district in Shawville included, in front from left, Mary Robinson, Sally nobody had heard from them in five Bradley, Peggy Frechette, Helen Hall, Frankie Taylor and Joan McConnell; and in back Beth Deveaux, Modays. nique Lynch, Madeleine Sutherland, Sheilagh Poole and Dorrene Balle. Obviously, the tale had a happy ending for the twosome.

Beware of Heartworm during month of May
From this it is easy to see how one infected dog can infect a whole neighbourhood. IDENTIFYING HEARTWORM
What are the signs of Heartworm disease? For both dogs and cats, clinical signs of heartworm disease may not be recognized in the early stages, as the number of heartworms in an animal tends to accumulate gradually over a period of months and some-
times years and after repeated mosquito bites. Infected dogs may exhibit no signs of the disease, while heavily infected dogs may eventually show clinical signs, including a mild, persistent cough, reluctance to move or exercise, fatigue after only moderate exercise, reduced appetite and weight loss. Cats may exhibit clinical signs that are very non-speciďŹ c, mimicking many other feline diseases. Chronic clinical signs include vomiting, gagging, difďŹ culty or rapid breathing, lethargy and weight loss. Signs associated with the ďŹ rst stage of heartworm disease, when the heartworms enter a blood vessel and are carried to the pulmonary arteries, are often mistaken for feline asthma or allergic bronchitis, when in fact they are actually due to a syndrome newly deďŹ ned as Heartworm Associated Respiratory Disease (HARD). HEARTWORM PREVENTION
Heartworm may be easily prevented. Start by having your veterinarian examine a sample of your dogĘźs

blood for the presence of the immature worms once yearly. If your dog is not infected, then a preventative program should be started. The preventative program involves giving the dog a pill once a month during mosquito season. This medication destroys the immature heartworms transmitted by the mosquitoes and stops the cycle of the disease. Preventive programs should not be started before your dog has been tested for the presence of heartworm disease by your veterinarian. The test and the preventive program should be done each spring with the medication continuing throughout the summer until November. For those vacationing in the United States with your dog, consult your veterinarian regarding the best way to provide continual protection against this easily preventable disease.

Heartworm is a blood parasite that poses a serious health threat to dogs in Canada. Heartworms are large roundworms that live in the right side of the heart and the blood vessels that supply the lungs, surviving on nutrients that they steal from the dogĘźs bloodstream. They can grow to a length of 15 to 30 centimetres, and in severe cases a dog may be infested with hundreds of worms. Heartworms are spread by mosquitoes. When a mosquito bites an infected dog, it will ingest the immature worms (microďŹ lariae) produced by the adults in the heart along with the blood from the dog. The immature worms develop in the mosquito over the next few weeks until they reach an infective stage. When the mosquito bites an uninfected dog, it will inject the immature worms into the tissues with its saliva. From here, the immature worms develop further and migrate to the heart where they will mature into adults and begin reproducing. This cycle continues unchecked unless treatment is given.

Happy Mother’s Day
In loving memory of our amazing mom Connie Farquharson who passed away July 21, 2014. There’s a place in our hearts where we keep you Filled with memories of love through the years Your wit and that great sense of humor Help us laugh through our heartache and tears We were blessed by your patience and wisdom And guided through life’s changing ways You encouraged our strengths with love and support Always done with such beauty and grace It’s our first Mother’s Day here without you And although in our hearts we are sad We know you’ll have great fun and laughter On this Mothers Day shared with dad We see you in our children’s smiles And in their children’s too Your kindness, grace and love goes on We’ll always have part of you
We miss you everyday mom. Love Jim, Doug, Jeanne, Cathy, Bob and families Bye for now

SADIE BOX “Your Mother is always with you. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street. She’s the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick, the fragrance of life itself. She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well. She’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colours of a rainbow; she is Christmas morning. Your mother lives inside your laughter. She’s the place you came from, your first home, and she’s the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you, not time, not space… not even death. Forever in my heart, Love Always, Shannon “Pussy Cat”

This weeks puzzle answers in next weeks issue
Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 You are a mystery lately, Aries. No one is quite sure what you will do next and you may like to surprise. But share your plans every so often with those closest to you. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, surround yourself with positive people who maintain optimistic outlooks. Many opportunities will open up if you keep a positive attitude. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you may resist social activities this week at first, but soon you will get swept up in the fun and lose your inhibitions. Use social activities as a way to network. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, if you are thinking about a career move, it’s about time you put your plans in motion. This week you may find you are full of energy and ready for a new challenge. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, a renewed sense of enthusiasm has you eager to get started on future plans. Perhaps a new course of study will suffice and pave the way for new experiences. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 A chance encounter with an old flame stirs up feelings you didn’t realize you still had, Virgo. Even if these feelings are less dramatic, you’re still tempted to act on them.
LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, it is up to you to initiate action in a situation that leaves you somewhat uncomfortable this week. Don’t hesitate to step up and take charge. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 A difference of opinion may be highlighted at work this week when you are confronted by a coworker, Scorpio. Act with integrity, but be firm with your resolve. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, others may try to stop you from having fun, but you are determined to enjoy yourself. Your entire week is focused on having a good time with friends and family. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, although you cannot control all of the changes in your life, you do have firm control over your personal health. Don’t put off revamping your diet and exercise plan. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, close friends will keep you pretty busy over the next few days, but you can handle it. Let off steam with a few different fun activities when time allows. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Use caution when making decisions this week, Pisces. You can be prone to impulsive behavior, and you don’t want to find yourself in trouble. 0507
