ADHS course selection to be reduced next term Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Animals are in the news this week with the start of another team penning season at the Arnprior fairgrounds and word that a local horse has been named to the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a good time to be a teacher looking for work at the secondary level. Declining enrolment can be blamed for the loss of about 12 teacher positions at Arnprior District High School for the 2012-13 term, which will likely mean fewer course choices for students. About 12 teachers at ADHS are affected at this point, say officials. The school population, which sits at about 790 students now, is expected to drop down about 65 students in the fall, said Dennis Jenkins, Renfrew County District School Board superintendent for the Arnprior area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Across the school board at the secondary level, there are about 50 people that are surplus,â&#x20AC;? said Jenkins. Fewer students and teachers means there are courses, in particular the elective courses not required for graduation, which will not be offered in the fall, said Jenkins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The smaller your school is, the harder it is to offer more choices,â&#x20AC;? he said. While it is uncertain exactly what will not be offered in the fall, it is likely that courses such as cosmetology will be slashed as things are realigned, said Jenkins. Along with declining enrolment, there is another factor affecting the situation, says Jenkins - leaves and retirements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last two years there were a very small number of retirements,â&#x20AC;? said Jenkins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past we had 15 or 20 retirements each year. Arnprior, for example, now has more teachers who are younger and more subject to the bumping process.â&#x20AC;? See JOBS SCARCE Page 3

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; To prevent the collapse of small towns through the gutting of rural hospitals, information pickets are taking place throughout the province â&#x20AC;&#x201C; beginning at Arnprior District Memorial Hospital (ADMH). About 30 members of the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU) gathered in front of ADMH on May 2. With the decline of manufacturing and other good-paying private sector jobs, small towns count on public sector jobs in hospitals, Ontario Works and elsewhere to keep their local economies sustainable. But according to union member Gary Sprague, whose family goes back four generations in Arnprior, the McGuinty Liberals are slashing health care funding. See SAVE Page 2

She has always seen the rural way of life as one of independence and lower taxes.

Now that she has heard there is â&#x20AC;&#x153;such an appetite to spend more on Arnprior services,â&#x20AC;? she said taxes will also increase to pay for projects in the township, such as a dock in Burnstown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be prepared for all the newspaper articles talking about tax increases,â&#x20AC;? she said at the meetingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end.

County, union head Save town by saving public sector: OCHU back to negotiations Continued from front

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 4989, representing Ontario Works staff in the County of Renfrew, is meeting with the County of Renfrew this week in an effort â&#x20AC;&#x153;to reach a settlement and continue to deliver services residents rely on.â&#x20AC;? The parties are heading back to the table with the help of a conciliator and the union is hopeful a settlement can be reached. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The members voted last week to stand up for the services they deliver,â&#x20AC;? said Amy Parker, CUPE National Representative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We called on the employer to come back to the table and we are hopeful that we can come to a settlement that represents the work Ontario Works staff provide in our communities, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to work together to make the services Ontario Works staff provide a priority for the County of Renfrew. The key is to maintain service delivery and advocate to secure the funding needed to ensure consistent quality supports for the people and families we serve while ensuring CUPE 4989 members have the resources to do so,â&#x20AC;? Parker concluded. Ontario Works delivers social assistance to about 1,110 clients monthly in the County of Renfrew. CUPE 4989 members provide services to those who are most vulnerable and being able to help them in a safe and healthy environment is a priority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those they support are part of the community they live in and clients rely on them every day,â&#x20AC;? says the union.

plies and technologies rise faster than the rate of inďŹ&#x201A;ation.â&#x20AC;? ADMH CEO Eric Hanna rejects the claim that overall health funding in town will be zero. While acknowledging the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $16-billion deďŹ cit means future funding wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compare to past funding, Hanna said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a 1.5 per cent increase in long-term care funding, an increase in assisted living. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Education and health remain priorities for the government,â&#x20AC;? Hanna said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall funding to health care to the area is not zero. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than zero.â&#x20AC;? However, on service cutbacks and bed closures, his response was that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect â&#x20AC;&#x153;any signiďŹ cantâ&#x20AC;? cuts in services.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is my town. My great grandfather worked here and built this town and we are losing these jobs,â&#x20AC;? said Sprague, who works at an Ottawa hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This town will disappear. It will become part of Ottawa. But we built this town and we will not give up. We will keep going and going and going.â&#x20AC;? Louis Rodrigues said patients are hit hardest, but that unions will ďŹ ght to ensure Canadians keep their standard of living. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most vulnerable are the ones that are going to hurt the most,â&#x20AC;? Rodrigues said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are labour and proud to be labour. But we are workers of this community. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a third world country. Why are we being treated like one?â&#x20AC;? Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is typical of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 55 small hospitals, according to an OCHU press release: it is well managed and operates without a deďŹ cit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that may soon change because the provincial governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding plan means rural hospitals get a zero per cent increase this year,â&#x20AC;? reads the press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is actually a cut of more than 5 per cent because hospital costs such as physician salaries, drugs and medical sup-

NDP SCORES DEAL FOR HOSPITALS

In a deal to avert an election, the NDP forced the Liberals to include $20 million for small hospitals in the recently passed budget. OCHU calls it â&#x20AC;&#x153;miniscule and doomsâ&#x20AC;? rural hospitals to cuts. Hanna indicated the unions are speculating; that no one knows how the money will be split. He reiterated that in past years the government funded growth, the emergency room expansion, assisted living and other

areas, but that the current economic state of the economy will mean â&#x20AC;&#x153;less in years to come.â&#x20AC;? OCHU president Michael Hurley acknowledges the economy is bad, but increasing taxes on corporations and the rich are ways to generate revenue. Keeping money in health care is good for the economy, he said, getting workers back on the job quicker and allowing rural communities to retain good jobs. He said Ontario hospitals are most efďŹ ciently run in Canada; that they already have the fewest beds and staff members, the shortest lengths of stay, that they run on 98 per cent capacity, and that the funding per person is $320 less than any other province. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, the government has to use ďŹ scal restraint. But small hospitals are already underfunded,â&#x20AC;? Hurley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To suggest service cuts when there could be a different tax regime â&#x20AC;&#x201C; people have to see public health care as an economic good. Each of us pays less (compared to buying private insurance, which depletes a consumerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purchasing power.)â&#x20AC;? OCHU plans to picket out front of Smiths Falls hospital on June 14.

Jobs scarce for teachers as falling enrollment cuts need for more classes Continued from front

Jenkins also noted there is quite a difference in situations at the elementary and secondary levels. In part, extending the kindergarten programs has absorbed some of the fall-out from declining enrolment at the elementary level, which is happening, but more slowly. Jenkins agreed it is not an easy time for those affected. “We know it’s difficult,” he said. “We’re hoping most will be stay around, but we know some will not.”

Jeffrey Barber, unit president for the Renfrew County branch of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, says Arnprior and the county are not alone. MOOD GLUM

The mood for teachers is pretty glum and depressed, he said. “It’s not a good time to be in this role because there aren’t a lot of job opportunities,” said Barber. “There are people who have been working

for our board for 10 years who have received notices they’d be affected. “We’re facing declining enrollment. There are a number of schools across the province in similar situations,” he added. “We have a lot of teachers who do not have jobs at the end of this year.” The union continues to go through the process of looking at seniority and qualifications. “There’s a lot of redundancy in our board,” said Barber. Letters have gone out to the teachers potentially affected, he said.

“We did go through a round of bumping last Monday,” said Barber. “People have a very clear idea whether they will be affected or not. I think they are well prepared.” The fact that the board doesn’t qualify for additional funding available for rural and remote schools just further adds to the burden, he said. “It’s unfortunate, we’re facing declining enrollment and our funding for our board is not what I’d like it to be,” said Barber. “I don’t feel that we’re adequately funded.”

Fire guts house on Russell Street Wednesday Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

Fire crews work to contain a fire at the corner of William and Russell streets on May 9. No civilians were injured. But a firefighter suffered a minor injury. It is believed the house was undergoing renovations .

EMC news – Smoke and flames consumed a home near the LCBO yesterday afternoon. Arnprior firefighters, police, and later firefighters from McNab-Braeside descended on the scene starting at 3 p.m. Police and other first responders kept neighbours well back of the 4 Russell St. fire, at the corner of William Street, while firefighters punctured holes in the roof and let smoke billow from open windows of the green stucco structure. According to the next door neighbour, who refused to be identified, rescue crews came knocking on his door and ushered everyone out soon after arriving at the scene. “I was having a nap on the couch,” the man said. “They were fixing it up inside to sell. A real shame.” He wasn’t concerned smoke would damage his home. It was blowing over William Street and past the tracks at the time. Fire chief John Okum, who was in Toronto, said in a phone interview his investigators believe no one was inside when it started. It was his understanding that renovations were taking place. No civilians were injured, but Okum confirmed that one Arnprior volunteer firefighter suffered a cut to his hand. “A firefighter had a minor injury, a laceration.” He couldn’t offer a damage estimate, or say if the home will need to be razed, but confirmed it sustained “extensive damage.” Authorities continue to investigate for a cause.

Let’s pay our fair share, it’s worth the cost, township residents tell councillors Some who stood up to speak said they expect to pay higher taxes – “everything costs money, and everything’s going up,” said one person – and they accept that Arnprior residents have been shouldering a disproportionately larger burden than township residents have been over the last number of years. All those who expressed similar sentiments, such as Bill Griese, were given a hearty applause. “We’re not paying our fair share,” Griese said. “It doesn’t seem like a lot to ask for. It’s the fair thing to do.” But the case presented to them was that Arnprior is asking for a lot. On the recreation front, the township already pays Arnprior $100,000 a year, one-third of the recreation budget, 40 per cent of deficit tax dollars. Yet, according to Campbell’s calculations, only 13 per cent of the township’s population participates in Nick Smith activities. All of council dismissed Arnprior’s proposal before the meeting started. It would see the current $117 paid per user climb to $122 this year and eventually to $175 by 2016. “This represents an increase of nearly another $55,000 to McNab-Braeside or another $18 per household to our tax bills on top of almost $36 we are paying now,” Campbell said. The second option was to have township users pay the town’s new prices.

“Many of us on council have seriously considered the question of why we should be in recreation agreements with either Arnprior or Renfrew based on the low number of residents participating,” Campbell said, adding that “the substantial subsidies that this participation burdens other taxpayers while deflecting from improvements to recreation facilities and programs with the township.” Later on she said the average township homeowner pays $820 less in taxes than the average town homeowner. Those savings could go toward paying a family’s recreation fees to Arnprior. Others rebutted that stand by saying the $820 proves that the township can afford to raise taxes to pay for the services. The third option is to have the municipality subsidize up to a limit of $112 per person, which is what township users of Renfrew facilities pay. While council held the meeting to hear public opinion on the three options, the first one is already ruled out. “I want to be clear that council is not considering Arnprior’s proposal,” she said before opening the floor to questions and comments. “The gulf between our cultures, spending habits, and organizations is viewed by council as being too great to bridge.” She cited a unionized staff in Arnprior and spending on items she sees as superfluous at the library. “A fireplace? Come on. I walk through there and say to my-

self: ‘Don’t you people have homes.’” Others said they have many friends in Arnprior and enjoy socializing at the library or Nick Smith Centre. Campbell said folks could do more socializing in township facilities if money were directed away from outside municipalities. At one point she suggested kids play hockey on an outdoor rink, which brought snickering from parents sporting Arnprior Minor Hockey jackets. Her point was that it made hockey accessible to more kids; others would say organized hockey is superior in many ways. LIBRARY OPTIONS

Arnprior’s proposal is to increase McNab-Braeside’s budget by another $33 per household to pay for the library. The issue is again complicated because some township residents are closer to Renfrew’s library and pay less to use it. Should they be burdened with supporting users of Arnprior’s? The costs and payment systems are also different. The second option has council considering that township tax revenue be used to subsidize residents holding memberships at either library up to $35 per person. “We are also proposing that this rate remain in effect until 31 December 2016,” Campbell said. The third option is to have users pay their own way. Again, most in the room seemed to flatly reject the user pay approach, and were apprehensive about having the township contribute by way of a subsidy. It was indicated that the services attract economic spin-offs in tourism and help grow the tax base, which lessens the burden on all. However, at least three people stood up to endorse the user pay approach. They were against raising taxes on seniors living on fixed incomes and other low income people. Coun. Bob Campbell said many folks who hunt, fish, snowmobile and do other recreational activities don’t get taxpayer dollars. The proponents of user pay were told their costs would skyrocket without help from the tax base. No one responded to the councillor’s point. At an upcoming council meeting, all opinions voiced at the public session will be considered and a decision brought to Arnprior.

Legendary Arnprior race horse named to hall of fame Dalyce Blue dominated the track in late 1950s john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A famous Arnprior horse will enter the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame May 25. Dalyce Blue, bred at Dr. John S. Findleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renowned Madawaska Farm of Arnprior, built up an impressive string of race tracks exploits in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The trotter is one of four â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;legendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; named to the Hall of Fame this year, along with trainer Patrick MacMurchy, jockey John Dewhurst and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;first lady of harness racingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mildred Williams. In announcing the inductees, the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame points out that Dalyce Blue became the first Canadian-bred trotter to record a sub-2:10 mile as a two-year-old and a 2:05 mile at three. The horse was trained and driven by Arnprior veterinarian-horseman Dr. John S. Findley, who is already in the hall of fame. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Docâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Findley, as the veterinarian was fondly called in this area, co-owned the farm with his father, John H. Findley. Findley was fond of naming his horses after Miss Canada winners and so named Dalyce Blue after the 1955 Miss Canada from Whitehorse. In the early years of Dalyce

Blueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career, she had to race against older horses and even pacers. Nevertheless, she won eight of nine starts as a twoyear-old. In 1959, as a three-yearold, she won 13 of 16 starts and was second in two others. No three-year-old trotter, colt or filly, American or Canadian bred, beat her that season. Her defining moment came at Suffolk Downs near Boston where she faced most of the best three-year-old trotters in the U.S., including World Champion Sara Black, in the $28,400 Suffolk Downs Trot. At odds of 14-1, Dalyce Blue, driven by Findley, came out of the pack in an exciting fiveway duel in the last 16th to win going away in 2:04.3. The Arnprior filly raced until the age of seven and took her lifetime mark of 2:03 at six. She retired with earnings of $90,119. As a broodmare, Dalyce Blue produced the $273,000 winner The Black Douglas and stakes winner Crimson Duchess, a winner of $73,195 who was voted Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s TwoYear-Old Trotter of the Year in 1969. The Legends section of the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame honors the people and horses whose accomplishments and feats occurred

Dr. John Findley accepts the trophy at the end of the race after his spectacular ride. a number of decades ago. The people and horses made unique contributions to horse racing in Canada and the Hall of Fame says it is pleased â&#x20AC;&#x153;to recognize the special roles they played in the development of Canadian horse racing.â&#x20AC;? The induction ceremony will take place at the Woodbine Race Track near Toronto. Dr. Findley, who is now 86, lives in the Hamilton area. Dr. John Steele Findley, who was born in Braeside, is famous in local horse racing circles. Madawaska Farm was located in the Winners Circle Mall area stretching across the highway to the airport, as well as the Charles and Arthur street neighbourhoods. One of the streets in the area is named John Findley in his honour. The farm was a mainstay of the area for 71 years up until the late 1980s. Many top race horses were born and/or trained at the farm. A number of horse trainers, including Ken Carmichael, Jim McCormick, Louis Gilchrest, Ron Fraser and Nelson White,

learned the trade there. Findley began his racing career at the Arnprior Fair in 1939 as a teenager. He became a veterinarian in 1947, earning the moniker â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Docâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; from then on. As well as practicing in Arnprior, he trained and raced horses throughout the province and beyond. Among his famous racers, along with

Strike appears over Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Employees at Haley Industries could be back to work as early as this Friday. Following talks last Wednesday, Thursday and into the early hours of Friday morning, a ratification agreement has been reached. The union recommended its members vote to accept the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest offer Wednesday (yesterday), noted Steelworkers Eastern Ontario staff representative David Lipton If the vote passes in favour, the Haley workforce could start to return to work this week. The strike has gone on for five weeks. About 388 Haley production and maintenance employees went out on strike April 3 at 12:01 a.m. after their collective bargaining agreement expired March 15. They were joined by clerical workers after they rejected the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final offer of a wage freeze for three years April 4, bringing the total of employees on the picket line to about 400 employees. A wage increase is what the production and maintenance employees are after, Local 4820 chief steward Peter Vanderploeg pointed out on the opening day of the strike.

OPINION EDITORIAL

No time to be silent when people victimized

National Victims of Crime Awareness Week took place last month, but the need for speaking out as (or on behalf of) victims of crime needs to continue yearround. That was evident during the April 23 workshop hosted by Canadian Parents of Murdered Children (CPOMC) and Survivors of Homicide Victims at Ottawa City Hall, where the theme was Stop Blaming the Victim. Another reminder is also upon us, since May is Sexual Assault Prevention Month. Each of the workshopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major

speakers spoke about how victims of crime can speak out so the blame is firmly placed, as it should be, on the perpetrators. While homicide is clearly a pertinent issue for CPOMC, including chairwoman Yvonne Harvey of Carleton Place and fellow board member Susan Love of Renfrew, the workshop made it clear that society needs to take a similar approach for crimes involving murder, domestic abuse or child sexual abuse. Ottawa journalist Kimothy Walker told workshop participants how she was able to rid herself

of certain demons when she went public about how she was sexually assaulted as a child. Nor must one go very far to find the seeds of physical abuse, in one form or another. Listen to the radio scanner for a day and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear way too many reports of domestic violence.Or read Jane Smileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A Thousand Acres that won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize. The novel, which mirrors Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s King Lear, is about a daughter (in the farmland of Iowa in the 1980s) who decides to expose her father who had sexually assaulted his two oldest daughters.

To tell or not to tell was a central theme in the book, which serves to show how traumatic such acts of crime can be on the victim, the family unit and the community. Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own assault happened when she was nine years old, but she was too unsure how to reveal her deep, dark secret for years. But eventually she did. Speaking out, she suggested, is essential if such crimes of epidemic proportion are ever to become a priority of the Canadian justice system. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just about justice for the perpetrator, either, but about justice

for the true victims of crime ... so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re given their proper voice and not blamed by the public or the media for those crimes. By talking openly, we fight stigma, said Walker. By talking as (or on behalf of) victims of crime, we allow for the truth to come out. By remaining silent, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy enough to believe that the evil has gone elsewhere, when it really hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, said Walker. For members of the public, Walker advises that we resist the temptation to look away. Because it takes education; because the public must be taught that change is required or evil will strike again. Change, in part, comes from a few brave souls speaking out. Because, as Walker so rightly reminds us, evil grows in dark places, but can barely grow in the light of day.

A Nurses Week letter of appreciation to Arnprior District Memorial Hospital To the editor: An open letter to the nursing staff at Arnprior District Memorial Hospital, the Grove and Assisted Living Services. On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to take this opportunity to commend you for your dedication, professionalism and passion in the provision of nursing services to our patients, residents and clients. During this past year you have been instrumental in achieving outstanding scores for resident and patient satisfaction. We are most appreciative of your efforts, which have resulted in scores of 97.6 per cent patient satisfaction at the hospital and 95 per cent resident satisfaction at the Grove. Day in and day out, more than 120 nurses ensure that we provide the highest quality of care in a safe environment. Your commitment to excellence is evident

in our quality initiatives, which show a continual increase in hand hygiene compliance, a decrease in patient and resident fall rates and a decrease in readmission rates. Our organization has a vision â&#x20AC;&#x153;to be recognized for exemplary careâ&#x20AC;? and with your ongoing commitment we are closer to our vision. Thank you for your commitment to providing care that ensures the highest patient and resident safety, thank you to our nursing leaders for providing guidance in adopting best practices, and thank you to our nursing management team for the adoption of evidence based practices (such as post discharge phone calls), which gives our multidisciplinary teams the capacity to exceed patient expectations. Jay Johnson, Chair Arnprior District Memorial Hospital Board

Privacy headline hid anti-diversity message To the editor: It is with great interest that I noticed a letter in your May 3 issue under the heading â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right to privacy should be respectedâ&#x20AC;?. I am, after all, a long-time advocate for privacy rights. (I hear your scepticism. Answer me this: have you ever heard of me until now? I rest my case.) Imagine my chagrin when I discovered upon reading said letter that it had absolutely nothing to do with privacy and was instead some sort of polemic against the diversity festival. Now, I am not about to engage in a critique of the letter-writerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point of view (suffice it to say: really? You are anti-diversity festival? May as well speak out against puppies and rainbows!) Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave that Herculean exercise in absurdity for another time â&#x20AC;Ś and person, God willing.

However, your misleading headline heaps injury on insult. It is not merely unrelated to the letter it announces, it is about as unrelated as you can possibly get. Should you choose to print this correspondence of mine under the heading â&#x20AC;&#x153;Andrew Fogarasi speaks out against puppies and rainbows,â&#x20AC;? you would be no further from the gist of things than you were then. My time is precious, and had the headline indicated the actual nature of the letter, I could have spent that precious time on something more fruitful, say advocating for privacy, working on my Middle East peace plan, or having a lovely nap. (No puppies or rainbows were harmed in the writing of this letter.) Andrew Fogarasi Arnprior

A) Access should be continued through local

A) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s valuable because it shows that gov-

libraries, and funded through the local municipal tax base.

ernment is out of touch and is spending far too much of taxpayers money on salaries.

B) Allow for public access in local schools in partnership with the public and Catholic school boards, as taxpayers are already paying to keep the facilities open.

Non-users shouldn’t have to subsidize rec and library services for others To the editor: Last night (Monday) I attended an information session and public meeting at our Lady of Perpetual Help hall in Braeside to receive or give input from the township residents regarding the purchasing the services agreements between the Town of Arnprior and the Township of McNab-Braeside for recreation and library services. There was a very good turnout of taxpayers present and the general consensus was that those in attendance (particularly the younger parents with children) are willing to have their taxes raised when it comes to recreation because the facility is

more function and the sport can be extended for a longer season because of the indoor rinks. Arnprior Library is one of the best and newest in the county and again most people will pay the extra tax money to use it. I personally do not want my taxes to go up again for services which my husband and I never use. We are living on a fixed income and if we want to go to a movie or take part in other courses which we enjoy, we either pay the price or don’t go. I think that for those who use these facilities, pay your own way. I cannot subsidize you, nor do I expect

you to subsidize me. A few years ago a friend and I went to Arnprior’s Town Hall to purchase burial plots for our family on Malloch Road Cemetery, which is in McNab Braeside, but owned by Arnprior. Because my friend had some property in Arnprior and I was considered an ‘outsider’, I was charged an additional $200 - all for the same services and for the same size of plot. We are right next to each other. I make the comparisons to Arnprior as a whole pie - they get the whole thing, while McNab-Braeside is made up of many little communities within the township. We each

only get a sliver of the pie, so if I want another piece of pie, I have to pay for it. I realize we live in a much different world than when we were raising our four children. In the summer they learned to swim in the Ottawa River. Lessons were provided by the Red Cross Society. In the winter they walked every night to an outside rink, played hockey, had carnivals, sometimes helped to clear the ice of snow. Rinks were even cleared and made on the shores of the Ottawa River, and some of them are still doing the same today.

Many great sportspeople came out of our little communities - some went on to greater and bigger things. Last night I was a listener at the meeting, but today I am gathering my thoughts about some of the things that were said. Mary Campbell, our mayor, and our councillors are trying to keep our taxes low and I applaud them for it. Too bad more people who opposed getting their taxes raised didn’t take the time to attend this meeting and voice their opinions. Tomorrow may be too late. Enis Poirier Braeside

MP Cheryl Gallant and Conservatives not supporting troops like they’ve long claimed To the Editor: Mrs. Gallant, who has so recently sent in letters to Ottawa papers stressing how her government supports and stands behind our troops, has failed to mention some interesting things in her letter. As we all know from the April budget; the Ministry of Veterans Affairs has taken cuts that directly affect our veterans and the Department of Defence has taken some of the largest cuts in the government In the 2012 budget, over 1,000 civilian support worker positions will be cut. These are the men and women who run the bases, make sure what needs to be done gets done and above all ensure that our fighting members have the information they need to come home safely when deployed overseas. Mr. Harper said no front-line soldiers would be affected. Well then, how does he and Mrs. Gallant explain the discontinuation of the Ex-

plosive Detection Program run out of CFB Suffield. The Counter Terrorism Technology Centre, also at CFB Suffield, which conducted research on biological, radiological nuclear and explosive incidents, will be scaled back. These are the men and women of our forces who developed the safer means of dealing with IED’s in Afghanistan. These men and women did the work that saved many of our soldiers’ lives in combat situations, and now they are being given pink slips. Overall the Conservative government by 2015 will have slashed $1.1 billion from the Defence budget. The government is also delaying the purchase of $3.5 billion in new equipment by seven years. For a government who has time and time again said that they will ensure our men and

women have the equipment they need, I’m not sure how pushing it off for another seven years meets that promise. Mrs. Gallant has just issued a press release stating how great the consolidation of Mental Health services is for CFB Petawawa. However, she fails to note that two psychologists are being let go, which means 60 solders, some of whom struggling with suicidal thoughts from PTSD, are losing their support systems. There is already four-month wait for solders at CFB Petawawa to get support. How long will they have to wait now? Veterans affairs are being hit with a $36.9 million cut to its budget. The Conservative government’s cuts will close district offices in Sydney, N.S.; Charlottetown; Corner Brook, N.L.; Windsor and Thunder Bay, Ont.; Brandon; Saskatoon, Sask.; and Kelowna and Prince George, B.C.

About 75 staff positions will be cut across the country. So when vets need to speak with someone, they now have to go online or phone somebody, instead of seeing a real person. When asked about these cuts, the Conservative government responded that there are less and less veterans in Canada. Apparently they have already forgotten about our Afghanistan vets and peacekeepers. This doesn’t sound like the Conservative government is giving our troops support. They are cutting the support that our solders need and putting them at risk on the front lines. What do you have to say about these cuts Mrs. Gallant? Where is the support? Brian Dougherty, member Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke NDP Arnprior

Liberals, quit picking on our riding To the editor: Re: The Liberal letter-writers, ‘The Three Stooges’, commonly called Moe, Larry and Curly in the movies (Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC May 3). The three MPs or stooges decided to denigrate or sully our MP from Renfrew-NipissingPembroke Cheryl Gallant. These three accusing Cheryl of being reckless with our health, putting her community members’ health at risk by supporting legislation reducing food safe-

ty service to Canada food inspection agency (CFIA). That was the comment by MP Frank Valeriote. The next, Bob Rae, questioned our MP about her proposed P.C. pension changes. John McKay slammed her as being reckless on the cost of the F-35 jets. Let me tell you that my home is Arnprior, being either the entrance or ending of her riding. It could be a place where you three jabonies would not fit in and be unwelcomed by

non-Liberals. Do the Liberals figure that with 35 seats that in 2015 that they could govern the country. Mr. Rae, you would have to gain at least another 131 to have 166. That is the number the government got to form the majority, with NDP 101, Liberals 19, other 11. That means PC 40 per cent, NDP 30 per cent, Liberal 19 per cent, others 11 per cent that was made up the Bloc and Green Party = 100 per cent. The Opposition’s suggestions say that Harper only got 40 per cent of the votes and 60 per cent didn’t vote PC. Well NDP got 30 per cent that means 70 per cent didn’t vote for them. The Liberals got 19 per cent, meaning 81

Construction companies being unfairly targeted To the editor: Well, that time of year is fast approaching when an otherwise enjoyable, quick or scenic drive is rudely interrupted by Stop/Slow signs, heavy equipment, road blockages and seemingly lazy and disgruntled construction staff. This mob of companies and workers occupying all our favorite traffic routes, creating fenced in, dusty sites on every other street comer, and slowing down the masses from their day-to-day life – how inconvenient! Well this is true, but let us not forget in the not-too-distant past when daily commutes or weekend trips to the mall were done on one of the deadliest two-lane stretches of highway in Canada. Or thousands of litres of waste that was diverted to the Ottawa, bypassing filtration, or when the Arnprior hospital’s emergency department was one of the most outdated in the province. To me, the inconvenience seems like a pretty small price to pay for day-to-day safety, protecting our natural environment and having a first-class facility to take our kids or elders when we can’t help them ourselves. None of these things are possible with-

out investment to our infrastructure and the construction industry to build it. This will be my 16th summer working in the construction industry; during my time away at school my summers were spent with Smith’s Construction on hot asphalt mats, freshly laid at 160 degrees, in pits and quarries, and on roads all over eastern Ontario. It provided me with a good chunk of money to pay for tuition, excellent experience and a little bit of empathy and admiration for the person holding the Stop/Slow sign. Now, like 1.3 million other men and women in Canada, the construction industry provides me with my job; in fact, in this area construction has long been a powerful source of employment with local companies like M. Sullivan and Son and Smith’s Construction (now the Miller Group), who over the years have strengthened and built up our local community. It’s quite difficult for me to understand why sometimes there is such animosity directed toward the construction industry. I learned recently of claims laid against the Miller Group at the Braeside Quarry. I was aware that the Miller Group removed their asphalt plant from the Braeside Quarry, which is a costly blow consider-

per cent didn’t vote Liberal and 11 per cent of vote for the fourth party mean that 89 per cent didn’t vote for the remaining parties. The Liberals seem to be riding on the coat-tails of the socialist NDP. Mr. Mulcair could not carry Jack Layton’s jock-strap. Mr. Mulcair, you and your party are nothing but fear-mongers, i.e. yourself, Pat Martin, Peter Julian, etc. taking up 13 hours of nothing in the House of Commons trying your dastardly fear tactics socialism. You three Stooges must think your ridings are OK, but you’re picking on the riding I live in. Try the truth. Doug Yourt, Arnprior area recently, chances are that if your house is more than 10 years old, the concrete has Braeside quarry stone. Or maybe your driveway, or possibly underneath your interlock walkway there is Braeside quarry crusher dust. Some homes quite possibly have Braeside drainage stone all the way around their foundations. That quarry has been supplying this area with construction materials and jobs to this area for many, many years. It seems that Arnprior and McNab have to constantly redefine themselves economically, from timber town to manufacturing haven to, now, bedroom community? I don’t know, but construction accounts for six per cent of our GDP; it’s Canada’s largest and probably most stable employer over the past decade and it has always been here, and I think it should continue to be a part of what defines this area.

NATURE

The jewels of the bird world have arrived EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Of all the local birds, few rival the wood warblers for beauty. These diminutive birds come in almost every colour, and often bear striking patterns that make most species easy to identify. Many species have names that give reference to their stunning appearances: Chestnut-sided, Black-throated Blue, Yellow, and Bay-breasted are ďŹ ne examples. For most species, the males are much more brightly coloured than the females, but fortunately many females look enough like the males to make their identiďŹ cation easy too. While many species arriving in our area will stay and

Michael Runtz Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way nest, a few are just passing through on their way to their northern breeding grounds. Orange-crowned, Palm, and Blackpoll warblers all nest in the great northern peatlands

and the tundra in Ontario. Warblers have tiny forcepslike beaks for extracting insects from their hiding places. As they ďŹ&#x201A;it through the trees, the birds glean insects from the undersides of leaves and twigs. Black-and-white Warblers creep along the trunks and limbs of trees, looking for meals hiding in bark crevices. A few such as the Ovenbird prefer to hunt on the ground. That species is named after its nest, an odd dome-shaped structure that looks like a Dutch oven. During migration, mixed ďŹ&#x201A;ocks of warblers pass through Ontario. On a really good day, as many as 20 species can be

found in a small area. In Point Pelee I once observed no fewer than 33 species in a single day! Down there, a number of southern strays get caught up in the movement and wander into Ontario. Kentucky and Worm-eating warblers make appearances annually in southern Ontario. The sighting of one of these southerners always generates great excitement among the hordes of birders that visit Point Pelee during the May migration. A little known fact is warblers arriving in the province do so along one of two major migration routes. The songbirds arriving in Point Pelee have travelled up

the central part of the United States in the Mississippi or Central Flyway. Those arriving near Picton have ďŹ&#x201A;own up the Eastern or Atlantic Flyway. The ones coming into our area could have arrived on either route! In either case, the tiny warblers arrive after ďŹ&#x201A;ying approximately 500 or 600 kilometres. Unlike sandpipers that ďŹ&#x201A;y non-stop for several days, songbirds tend to ďŹ&#x201A;y only at night. The cooler night air helps keep their engines (massive ďŹ&#x201A;ight muscles) air-cooled and there are no head winds to ďŹ ght on the nights they choose to ďŹ&#x201A;y.

It is also much safer for them, as there are no hawks that ďŹ&#x201A;y at night, plus they are far too high off the ground for those predators to cause concern, even if one of those hunters could choose a nocturnal foray. For the next three weeks, the tiny wood warblers will be passing through in good numbers. Especially lively are the warm mornings after a rain. The jewels of the bird world delight more than our eye â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they are also great vocalists. Do enjoy the show while the migration lasts! The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

Cutbacks leave police not MNR to deal with bears: OPSEU EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The province is sending out news releases reminding families to take simple precautions this spring to help prevent attracting black bears as they come out of hibernation. That may be even more important than ever, as cutbacks are limiting government response when rogue bears cause problems, says the union representing Ministry of Natural Resources employees.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring along invasive species when you go to the cottage EMC lifestyle - Campers and cottagers preparing for their ďŹ rst trip of the season could unknowingly be carrying invasive â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hitchhikersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with them to their destination. These uninvited travelers that threaten the health of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forests and lakes are known as invasive species, and they are a growing threat in Ontario and throughout North America. An invasive species is a plant or animal that has been accidentally or deliberately introduced to an area outside of its normal geographical range. Without natural controls such as predators, they spread rapidly and can cause negative impacts to ecosystems, the economy and even society. Cottagers and campers can follow these steps to prevent the spread of invasive species: â&#x20AC;˘ inspect and clean boats and motors; â&#x20AC;˘ dispose of bait properly; â&#x20AC;˘ groom pets after hiking; â&#x20AC;˘ buy ďŹ rewood where it will be burned; â&#x20AC;˘ garden with non-invasive plants; â&#x20AC;˘ clean mud, seeds and plant parts from equipment. To help combat the introduction and spread of invasive species, the Ontario Invasive Plant Council (OIPC) is launching a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;24 Before 24â&#x20AC;&#x2122; campaign to remind everyone to â&#x20AC;&#x153;look before you leave!â&#x20AC;? Visit www.ontarioinvasiveplants.ca to learn more.

Campers and residents in most of Ontario face greater danger with bears this year because the Ontario government has cut by more than half the number of staff trained to deal with bears that threaten peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety, says the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU). The recent Ontario Budget directed the MNR to cut $50 million from its budget, noted he union. Changes to the Bear Wise education and response program are among the ill-advised cuts, maintains OPSEU president Warren â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Smokeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The McGuinty Liberals are way off base with claims that government can take this huge step back and make the warding off of bear attacks a personal rather than public responsibility,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bears donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read MNR education materials or heed No Trespassing signs. Sometimes, despite peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best efforts, bears pose a danger to humans. Cutting experts out of the mix is hardly the answer.â&#x20AC;? The MNR has 21 technicians in 15 Northern Ontario communities, down from 48 in 25 communities. Ministry cuts mean they will no longer set traps, relocate bears, make on-site visits to landowners who are having conďŹ&#x201A;icts with bears, or do public education for schools, day and overnight camps, and outdoor nature groups. People in areas without bear technicians will have to call OPP. That diverts police resources from other areas, says Ed Evens, the elected representative for OPSEU members at MNR. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an inappropriate response,

since police are not trained to deal with wildlife,â&#x20AC;? Evens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think the ministry changes will lead to a lot more bears being shot by homeowners and police. Right now, the bear population is stable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this time of year, when you shoot a bear, you run the risk of killing a mother and leaving cubs on their own. Clearly, cuts to the Bear Wise program are bad for the people and not so good for the bears either.â&#x20AC;? The government release points out the potential for human-bear conďŹ&#x201A;icts increases when there is little natural food for bears. If this happens, black bears will search for other food sources, such as garbage and bird feed, which can draw bears to populated areas. Follow these simple instructions

to minimize the chances of attracting black bears: â&#x20AC;˘ store garbage in waste containers with tight-ďŹ tting lids; â&#x20AC;˘ put out garbage only on the morning of pick-up; â&#x20AC;˘ put away bird feeders - seed, suet and nectar also attract bears; â&#x20AC;˘ Clean outdoor grills after each use, including the grease trap underneath. Bears will be drawn by smells from great distances, including grease and food residue on grills. People who have problems with bears can call the toll-free bear reporting line anytime at 1-866-514-2327. In a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or your local police. Learn more about what you can do to keep bears out of your neighbourhood at ontario.ca/bearwise.

Scholarship fundraiser to keep teen’s memory alive John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC events – The public can help the family of Kay Lyman keep her memory alive through a scholarship by supporting a fundraiser this Saturday, May 12. The Lyman family is holding a yard and bake sale and a barbecue at 17 Charles St. in Arnprior from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s a difficult time for the family as it’s coming up to the second anniversary of Kay Lyman’s death. The 18-yearold Arnprior District High School student was killed in a car crash on County Road 29

east of Arnprior on May 20, 2010. All proceeds from this Saturday’s fundraiser will go toward scholarships in Kay’s name to deserving ADHS students. Last year the Katrina Lyman Memorial Award was given for the first time. Kay’s brothers, Colby and Ross, presented the $1,500 scholarships to ADHS students Shelby McKeen and Shannon Roesler. The scholarships were funded by a series of fundraisers organized by the family, determined to generate something positive from the terrible crash.

The family also treated last year’s grad class with a free movie with the proceeds of the fundraising. While this year’s fundraising isn’t as extensive, Kay’s mother, Samantha Lyman of Arnprior, anticipates Saturday’s event will raise at least enough money for one scholarship and maybe more depending on the response. “There will lots of baked goods … and other items for sale,” she said. “And we’ll have hot dogs, hamburgers on the barbecue and we’re hoping to have bacon on the bun.” The May 12 event will also feature a 50/50 draw and a free draw for a mother’s day basket. “All donations are gratefully accept-

ed,” said Samantha Lyman. She said helping other ADHS students

access post-secondary education is a fitting tribute to her daughter.

McNab Days pass to cost $10 EMC events – McNab Days promises to provide participants with hundreds of dollars worth of fun and entertainment, but a festival pass for the five municipalsponsored events is $10, not $100 as indicated in last week’s newspaper. McNab Days runs from June 22 to July 1 with such events as the Calling of the Clans, Braeside Riverdrive, Braeside Beach opening celebration, Tartan

Run and Sunday Stretch family day, and the Walk/Cycle/Ride/Drive the Heritage Trail. The entry fee for the events is $4 a person and $10 for a family of four at the gate. The nine-day festival passes for all five municipal events cost $10 a person or $20 for a family of four. They are available at the Township office.

Garage sales galore Saturday Staff

EMC events – The charity yard sale season kicks into high gear this Saturday, May 12. Arnprior area bargain-hunters can do the circuit Saturday morning on the lookout for deals. As well as the Katrina Lyman Memorial scholarship yard and bake sale at 17 Charles St., there are at least four other major garage sale events. Arnprior District Memorial Hospital is holding a garage sale and barbecue 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with all proceeds going towards the purchase of the Digital Mammography machine. There is also another yard sale benefiting the Digital Mammography campaign that morning at the Kenwood Centre Over at the Grove Nursing home from 8 a.m. to noon, there is a garage sale for the United Way. Up at the Arnprior Mall, Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors At Home is holding a spring yard sale from 9 a.m. to noon at the Arnprior Mall. Out in the Braeside area, the Moores are holding a plant sale starting at 8 a.m. in support of the Friends Addressing Concerns Together community group. TEST DRIVE A FORD

Tree of life towers over folks at Bonnechere Manor Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

Michelle Spooner stood behind a roomful of people at the Bonnechere Manor Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tree of Life unveiling Sunday. Many are residents, have family at the long-term care facility, or donated to the construction of the $1.1-million auditorium. Spoonerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connection has to do with an old dog, Spencer, that she partnered with to bring residents joy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spencer was part of the dog therapy program, through St. John (Ambulance),â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful place here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new, fresh, it feels good.â&#x20AC;? Spoonerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other connection is that her sister-in-law is Kathryn Bossy, the artisan who created the work attached to a wall and towering over all who admire it. Made of lexan and metal, stained glass, beads, Japanese

paper, and mirror, the idea is that every donor has their name on a leaf; as more donors join, more leafs will be added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m biased, but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing,â&#x20AC;? Spooner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think she has an incredible eye for matching colours that you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t normally think would work together.â&#x20AC;? Don Goulet, past chairman of the foundation and one of two founding members still on the board, said residents gave $650,000 to the project, but that another $120,000 is still needed for amenities. His first words after the cover came down reflected awe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wow. Very impressive. Very impressive,â&#x20AC;? Goulet said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Definitely worth waiting for. I like that it has room to grow.â&#x20AC;? According to a foundation press release, the Tree of Life is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a symbol of

honour and remembrance. It is also the foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definition of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;compassion,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; as it represents all those who give back to and enhance the lives of the residents at Bonnechere Manor. Families who have lost loved ones and families who have honoured special life occasions have been provided with a memorial avenue that represents strength, endurance, friendship, and immortality.â&#x20AC;? Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski is impressed with the overall concept of the work, and the manor staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful idea,â&#x20AC;? Yakabuski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful way to memorialize loved ones, but also in doing so to support the manor that is vitally important to the community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and county wide.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Arnprior OPP detachment has a new commander, at least temporarily. Acting Staff Sergeant Julie Cyr has been named the Interim Detachment Commander and Mike Forster who is still at the detachment has been â&#x20AC;&#x153;administratively reassigned

to another duty,â&#x20AC;? according to the OPP. Police indicate they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know as yet how long that arrangement will last. Cyr has had several postings around Eastern Ontario and spend a year in an exchange mission developing police policy and strategy in Haiti.

TAKING A RIDE FOR THE HEART AND STROKE FOUNDATION A.J. Charbonneau and Walter Zadow Public School teachers joined forces and raised $2,800 in a joint ride on the Heart and Stroke Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big Bike when it came to Arnprior on April 30. At the front of the bike are Walter Zadow principal Kim Shoveller and teacher Allison Fuisz. Photo by John Carter

Hilda Barrettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kindergarten students at Walter Zadow Public School came forward in a big way when they heard she and Mrs. Forrest were raising funds for their tour on the Big Bike. Alex Geddes raised $200 at a bake sale and with a collection jar and Heidi Lebrun also raised quite a bit to help the teachers, who combined with their counterparts from A.J. Charbonneau to raise $2,800. The students raised money in memory of a loved one - Heidi honoured her aunt Anna Wilson and Alex his great-grandmother.

YOUTH

Run for mental health

Photos by Derek Dunn

Help available for youth with mental health problems Kayla Menkhorst, Don Gougeon Youth Corner

EMC lifestyle – Last week we celebrated youth as part of International Youth Week, and this past week we are promoting positive wellbeing in youth through Mental Health Awareness Week. Mental health is something that has created a lot of publicity through things such as the Do it for Daron campaign, among others. With the spotlight being on mental health in youth, we wanted to share a few facts with you so you have a better understanding of what mental health really is. There are 4.5 million youth aged 15 to 25 in Canada and 10-20 per cent will suffer from a mental health problem in their adolescents (Canadian Mental Health Association). Youth who progressively feel sad - lack of energy, irritated easily, little sleep or sleeping to much, withdrawal from friends or family, worsening grades, etc. (livingmatters.com) could be suffering from depression. This can lead to array of other mental health problems. Mental health isn’t something to be afraid of, it isn’t abnormal, and it deserves attention and awareness so we can help youth become healthy-minded individuals. Don’t think that just because you aren’t happy all the time that you have a mental health disorder. It’s about your overall health and how you think, feel, cope, and behave, how you feel about yourself and your self-esteem. Some mental health problems could be anxiety disorders, behaviour disorders, mood and eating disorders, and substance abuse (Children’s Mental Health Ontario). Remember you can always make a difference in someone else’s life too. Mental health does not just mean disorders such as depression; positive mental health means feeling good about yourself and feeling happy and worthwhile. There are many resources that youth can tap into to read more about positive mental health and mental health awareness (Kids Help Phone, Mental Health Services of Renfrew County, adults). A way to help yourself is to talk to others about your problems, whether it be a friend, adult or anyone you trust.

Here are a few ways that you can promote your own mental health: make sure you get enough sleep, exercise and eat healthy foods. You also need to remember to spend time doing things that you enjoy as well as spending time with family and friends (Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario). There are many services that are offered in your local community to help with those youth who are affected by mental health issues. So don’t ever feel alone. There are always people ready and willing to help. Talking to an adult, calling Kids Help Phone at 1-800-668-6868 or even our youth coordinator, Kayla Menkhorst at 613-883-7301; they are always available to help you.

Over 40 participants hit the pavement in Arnprior District High School’s inaugural run for youth mental health. People ran or walked a designated route last Saturday morning, May 5, before meeting back at the high school. Post race recovery food was donated by Metro, No Frills and Giant Tiger. Grade 11 student Hannah Martin, right, volunteered to work the registration table because she believes it is important to raise awareness about an issue that claims the lives of youth in the region, including a recent case at Opeongo High School and a few others closer to home over the past few years. Arnprior’s high school now has a Phoenix Centre counsellor visit Mondays, according to teacher Laura Carter, who helped organize the run. The ADHS student council-led event raised $890 for CHEO in support of Teen Mental Health.

Madawaska Mustangs win girls hockey title With six teams in their division, the girls finished second overall in the league and then advanced to the final round of the Upper Ottawa Valley league playoffs and after a tough four-game final series they won the championship. The team is a member of the

Madawaska Girls Hockey Association (MGHA), which plays in the Upper Ottawa Valley Girls Hockey League out of Pembroke. MGHAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home ice is shared between Renfrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mat-e-Way arena and Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nick Smith Centre. It currently hosts teams in Atom/

Peewee, Bantam and Midget divisions with girls ages 9 to 18. During their season the Peewee Mustangs participated in tournaments in Carleton Place and Brockville and had a lot of fun. Thanks goes to coach Kevin Murray, assistant coaches Jim Wagner

EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Arnprior native Doug Derraugh has another feather in his hockey helmet. The 2011 ECAC Hockey Coach of the Year was an assistant captain with the gold medal-winning Canadian Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hockey team in last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world championships in Vermont. Not only did Derraugh play a role in the unexpected victory, so did four members of his Cornell University womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey team. After being blasted 9-2 by the U.S. in the tournamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

first game, Canada rebounded to gain a rematch with the U.S. in the final and won 5-4 in overtime. Caroline Ouellette scored the game-winning goal 1:50 into overtime, sending the Canadians to their first world championship since 2007. Derraugh assisted head coach Dan Church with the team, which went into the tournament with the slogan â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;skill and sandpaperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. On the roster for Canada were Cornell players Rebecca Johnston, Laura Fortino, Brianne Jenner and Lauriane Rougeau. All four played in the cham-

pionship game, with Johnston getting five shots on goal. In a round-robin game, the Cornell contingent combined for eight points in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14-1 victory against Russia. Johnston had a goal and four assists. In a 3-2 win over Finland, junior defenseman Laura Fortino scored her first ever international goal. She joined Canadian captain and hall of famer Hayley Wickenheiser on the world championshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all-tournament team. Derraugh has coached the Cornell womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey team for the past seven years, win-

ning ECAC Hockey and Ivy League championships and earning top 10 seedings. He is a 1991 alumnus of Cornell, which is located in Ithaca, New York. Derraugh is the son of Don and Betty Derraugh of Arnprior. He played his minor hockey in the Town of Arnprior and attended Arnprior District High School. He played for the Junior B Packers, Hawkesbury Hawks of the Central Junior (A) Hockey League and Cornell before his hockey playing career took him professionally to Europe.

All Ontario Silver for Valley Pride EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Valley Pride Major Midget girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team capped off a successful season by capturing the silver medal at the All Ontario Championships in Cambridge on the last weekend in April. The squad, coached by Dan Gauthier and Alan Atkinson, had a season record of 21 wins and 15 losses. The girls played in five tournaments, winning gold in Victoriaville, Quebec, silver at the Cornwall Invitational, gold at the Eastern Ontario Basketball Association Championships and silver at the All Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. At the All Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the Pride had a 2-1 round robin record in their pool, beating Hanover Youth and the Etobicoke Rams to advance to the semi-

finals where they defeated the Orangeville Hawks in an exciting game by two points. The Pride then faced the Orillia Lakers for the gold medal. The players gave it their all but came up just short, falling in the fourth quarter. The midget girls team, which has players from the Arnprior, Pakenham and Almonte areas, played hard all weekend, giving it their best and showing sportsmanship and tenacity as they played through many injuries. Congratulations to the team for a great season on and off the court and a thank you to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fans for their support throughout the year.

Players signing up for Wolverines football season Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Preparations are underway for another Wolverines football season in the area with a free three-week spring training camp. In past years, about 125 players out of a possible 138 from Ward 5, Arnprior and surrounding areas join the West Carleton Wolverines. Tykes are ages 8, 9, and 10; mosquitoes are 11 and 12;

peewees are 13 and 14; and bantams are 15 and 16. Organizer Andrew McArdle explained that the Stonecrest school free training camp for boys and girls, from May 22 to June 7, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, is a no-strings attached offer. During the one Saturday session, a free lunch and guest university coaches will be on hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the camp,

if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it does happen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to commit,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that some years as many as 20 per cent of tykes decide they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy football. (The $350 deposit paid in exchange for use of the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equipment will be returned in full.) However, many others do. McArdle said football is great exercise, lots of fun, a good way to meet friends, a great way for kids to meet challeng-

es and foster a competitive attitude. The one cost to parents is the price of cleats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called the ultimate team sport,â&#x20AC;? he said, pointing to footballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best draw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In hockey and basketball you get your superstar, the kid that can ďŹ&#x201A;y. But in football everybody needs to rely on everybody else on the ďŹ eld. Even a speedy linebacker needs someone in front of him (throwing tackles).â&#x20AC;?

Teams play eight regular season games, including four at home on the West Carleton Secondary School ďŹ eld. Leagues include 15 clubs, 12 of which are from Ottawa, so the driving isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too bad. One team travelled to Cornwall for a game last year, but in McArdleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimation that was the only time a time was forced to travel that far. Although the Wolverines usually ďŹ nish well back of the city teams, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve often won the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122; division playoffs. McArdle added that players

are rarely cut during â&#x20AC;&#x153;tryouts,â&#x20AC;? but if it did happen, parents again would see a full refund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some clubs charge an administrative fee, but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? Regular season begins in late July and runs into October. Coaches try to be accommodating to kids that are involved in hockey, since there is a slight overlap. Equipment ďŹ tting is passed, but McArdle said any kid who wants to join and do so right up to July. For more information, call McArdle at 613-832-8083.

Youth soccer teams urged to sign up for prize EMC sports – The BMO Financial Group has launched the second season of its nationwide youth soccer program, BMO Team of the Week. While there are no Arnprior or Renfrew County teams yet involved, two youth teams from Lanark have submitted entries into the program - Lanark United Girls U12 team and the Lanark United Boys U11. As registered teams they are eligible for a $125,000 soccer field refurbishment. The contest, open to youth soccer players ages 7-12, recognizes 15 weekly winners who demonstrate team pride, spirit, community commitment and passion for the game. The latest winner is the Ottawa Royals Futuro U-10 boys, who were recognized for their achievements on and off the field in their hometown. The 2012 Champion will be crowned this summer when Canadians cast their vote starting Aug. 13 to select their favourite team from the 15 weekly winners. As well as money for field improvements, teams can win a trip to see a Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Montreal Impact or Canadian National Team home match, as well as a $5,000 donation to the team’s charity of choice. The winning team will receive: $125,000 towards a field refurbishment; a trip to see a Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Montreal Impact or Canadian National Team home match; and a $5,000 donation to the team’s charity of choice. Last year’s BMO Team of the Week champion was the Glen Shields Sun Devils, a U– 11 girls team from Vaughan. They gave the $5,000 donation from BMO to the Canadian Paralympic Committee.

Rugby powerhouses clash at Dochart Park Redmen suffer first defeat of 2011-12 season John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After several lopsided wins, the Arnprior Redmen girls rugby team was looking for a strong test as they gear up for the Eastern Ontario championships. They got it. ADHS lost its ďŹ rst game all season in the ďŹ nale of a threegame mini-tournament Saturday at Dochart Park. They also learned a good lesson about letting their guard down late in a game, as they lost 8-7 to Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ashbury College on a last-second score. Arnprior had manhandled Cowichan, a visiting team from British Columbia, 45-0 in the ďŹ rst game. The highly ranked Cowichan squad is touring Eastern Ontario. The Redmen led Cowichan 38-0 at half-time. Coach Glenn Wallace said he received good contributions from all his players. In the second game, Ash-

bury College, one of the most successful girls rugby programs in Ontario, blanked Cowichan 20-0. The two winning teams, both currently ranked in the top-10 in the Rugby Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s High School Girls Rugby rankings, then met in the ďŹ nal match. Arnprior led Ashbury 7-3 into the dying moments before Ashbury scored the winning try on the ďŹ nal play of the game. It was the ADHS teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst defeat of the 2011-2012 season, after 19 straight wins. The Redmen will play their ďŹ nal exhibition game before the EOSSAA championships against Quinte Secondary School at 1 p.m. at Dochart Park on Thursday, May 17. ADHS will defend its title at EOSSAA in Kingston on Thursday, May 24. If the Redmen win, they will advance to the Ontario championship in Ottawa June 4 to 6.

Arnprior ringette player Lauren McGonigal, front row, far left, and Team Ontario, returned home from the Canadian championships with a bronze medal last month.

Arnprior player caps off year with national bronze medal Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lauren McGonigal receives an invitation to try out for the U19 Team Canada East ringette team was exciting in itself.â&#x20AC;? McGonigalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team lost twice to Team Alberta, but both games went into overtime. Team Ontario lost in the gold medal qualifying game to a team from St. Clements, which went on to win the title. Team Ontario beat Team Quebec to win bronze 5-1. McGonigal scored her teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third goal in what was referred to by a television commentator as a rocket shot to the upper corner of the net. McGonigal played for the Nepean Raven Belle AA team during regular season. That squad won the Provincial title

in early March. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good team and I had a great year,â&#x20AC;? said McGonigal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a strong group of girls.â&#x20AC;? McGonigal has developed a love for ringette over the 11 years sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been playing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the speed and intensity of it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to go hard, for sure. I love to skate fast.â&#x20AC;? She credits those around her for lots of encouragement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had lots of support from family and friends,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always coming to my games.â&#x20AC;? McGonigal also participated in the Winter Games in Collingwood March 8-11 as

part of Ontario United AAA Ringette team made up of players from all over Ontario. The team placed fourth. The trip offered a few opportunities for sightseeing and the girls were able to see Stanley Park and Lions Gate Bridge. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up next for McGonigal? She has received an invitation to try out for the U19 Team Canada East team, so sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heading to London, Ont., in a few weeks and is excited about the opportunity. Then, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off to St. Lawrence College in Kingston this fall to study fitness and health promotion.

Team penning popularity grows in region Several events planned for Arnprior Fairgrounds Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a growing sport among young people since the Ottawa Valley Team Penning Association shifted operations to Arnprior, says president Sherry Schlievert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the biggest number of youth riders in 15 years,â&#x20AC;? she said. Penning has to do with using a horse to manipulate cows into a pen. Riders need to anticipate animal reactions and interfere with their natural inclination to herd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to know how to read the cow, to get it to do what you want it to do,â&#x20AC;? Schlievert said, at a May 6 introduction/novice event. With the team penning held at the Arnprior fair grounds, Schlievert sings the fair boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s praises since the association moved from South Mountain to be closer to the cows supplied by Douglasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bobby Dick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been really great to us.â&#x20AC;? UPCOMING EVENTS

The association has plenty of events planned for this year, including a two-day Team Penning Fun Day weekend on May 19 and 20; and more fun days on June 2, 3, and 16. A Ranching around for CHEO on June 23 promises to raise funds for the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hospital while spectators get to enjoy seeing riders do all tasks that take place on a typical cattle ranch. Another fun day is July 14, with a ranch sorting on July 15, and a Team Penning fun day July 28; Aug. 10 is the Friday night Shout Out at the Arnprior Fair, along with many other future events. Schlievert, who lives in Fitzroy with husband Jeff and daughter Ashley 15, and son Bailey, 9, said many members are from Woodlawn, Arnprior and other nearby areas. One of the mentors is Val Hisko of Renfrew. Kids who participate learn about teamwork, share quality family time, and develop confidence; Schlievert said handling a horse while guiding 700-pound animals around a caged in area is not for the faint of heart. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all done under a time crunch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be dangerous, but you have to trust your horse and your cow,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They feel good after knowing they can take three cows to pen in under 90 seconds.â&#x20AC;? She said that team cattle penning is the fastest growing horse sport in North America over the last 10 years. It is an activity suited for all ages and the whole family, she said, noting she took it up four years ago after her husband had been involved for four years.

Fiddler on the Roof to play Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150 weekend Pidgeon. Even the set has a critical role to play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recreating Russia in the early 1900s as the backdrop for the production has been a creative challenge, but deďŹ nitely worth the effort,â&#x20AC;? says Pidgeon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The crew has really outdone themselves to design a unique stage experience for the audience â&#x20AC;&#x201C; everything from the set design to the period costumes and props.â&#x20AC;? Musical director Lisa Webber, who also heads up the Arnprior Community Choir, is thrilled to be working with such a high calibre of vocal and musical performers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of our cast has more than three decades of experience on stage, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a delight working with them on these incredible songs,â&#x20AC;? says Webber. Along with the veterans, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a group of young singers and musicians who get to showcase their talents, including a gifted 14-year-old violinist from Carleton Place in the title role of Fiddler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have some amazing young performers, whose talents really shine in this production,â&#x20AC;? says Webber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really something for audiences of all agesâ&#x20AC;? Fiddler on the Roof will be presented for the three nights at 7 p.m. at the Arnprior District High School. Tickets are available at the Arnprior Book Shop, the Ice Shack and online at www.tworiversmusicals.ca.

The two leads of Fiddler on the roof are Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s James Hrkach as Tevye and Buckhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Kirsten Carroll Somoza as Golde. Another key role is Donna Balkan from Constance Bay, who does a hilarious turn as Yenta, the matchmaker.

EMC entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Valley will soon be alive with the sound of Fiddler on the Roof. Rehearsals are in full swing for the exciting new show from Two Rivers Musical Productions, coming to the Arnprior District High School on June 7, 8 and 9. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one more reason to celebrate during Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th anniversary festivities. Bringing a truly Valley ďŹ&#x201A;avor to the Broadway favorite, Fiddler on the Roof boasts a multitalented cast and crew from more than a dozen local communities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including Arnprior, Braeside, Carleton Place, Castleford, Constance Bay, Pakenham, Kanata, Renfrew and Stittsville. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production promises to be an even bigger event than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular staging of Annie. Fiddler on the Roof is a heartwarming and highly entertaining show that tells the story of a poor Jewish dairyman who struggles to hold on to his traditions amid the change and chaos of pre-revolutionary Russia. The show has it all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hilarious scenes, stirring song and dance numbers and beautiful solo performances. For Director Marybeth Pidgeon, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a wonderful chance to collaborate with a diverse group of seasoned performers and young talent over the past ďŹ ve months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been fantastic seeing this rich story come to life through such an incredible cast,â&#x20AC;? says

M-B firefighters confirmed as rib masters Rib contest judge tells all Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

Photos by Derek Dunn

There they are like (enter favourite hockey team’s dynasty). The team from McNab-Braeside Fire Department has won back-to-back Renfrew Rib Challenge contests. They faced off against four more area first responders organizations last Saturday. According to Arnprior’s Derek Dunn, a celebrity judge at the event, the ribs were “Valhalla on a bone.” a privilege. I may move to Renfrew. I live and work in Arnprior (who threw that rotten tomato?) and only got this gig after cashing in every last Karma point. But during that 30 minutes of judging it seemed to me that Renfrew was the happiest place on Earth. The sky bluer, the sun sunnier. I no longer believed my town was better or worse than any other. I no longer agreed with George W. when he said “You are either with us, or with the Renfrewists.” No divisions. I felt at one with everything. Except a nip of beer, of course, which would have been a nice touch. Then it was over.

Money raised at the event goes to the region’s defibrillator program. Judges sporting rib smiles include Warden Bob Sweet, county chief administrative officer Jim Hutton, county It wasn’t a runaway for the victor, surpris- human resources director Bruce Beakley, and MyFM’s Jamie Cybulsky.

ingly. Judges were often split, some (me) calling one rib the best, others (Mr. Sweet) wrongly calling it… meh. And vice versa. Luckily for me it didn’t come to blows. Some of the comments, in order of those brought to our table, included: gooey and sweet with a hint of honey, but a little dry; ribs done two ways in a smoky dry rub and tangy sauce on the side, entertaining; fall off the bone tasty, but the sauce lacked that wow factor; good for getting fingers sticky, but couldn’t eat more than a few; best colour but not enough sauce. After careful deliberation by the panel and close scrutiny by returning officer Steve Osip-

enko, the winner was announced to the crowd. Returned as champions is the team from McNab-Braeside. “It was a great job by all,” Sweet said, no doubt trying to prevent retaliation from other teams. Jeremy Barnett of the winning team was immediately hit with the Gotcha Question. “Quick – what’s in the sauce?” “I can’t tell you because it wouldn’t be a secret anymore,” was the cunning response. He was squeezed to say the process includes charcoal and wood, but little more than that. “I love giving back to the community,” he concluded, before turning to leave. There were plenty of other funs things to do at the event, such as Tracey’s Dairy handing

out free ice cream, a large Kidz Zone run by the Child’s Paradise Day Care Centre. Along with the many activities taking place, children were exploring ambulances, fire trucks, police cars and other emergency vehicles. Organizers thanked Ontario Power Generation, Renfrew Rent All, and Sterling No Frills for their contributions. The money will be used to maintain and replace life-saving defibrillators in various locations across the county. As for me? Back to my humdrum life in Arnprior; back to judging my own ribs and cleaning my own dishes. But I’ll have that special day in Renfrew emblazoned on my memory forever. No one can take that away from me. No one.

Following a successful fundraiser Saturday, I had four teams ready to slap me across their barbecues and only one wanting to garnish me in a halo of parsley. Why? Because I was among the chosen few to judge the annual first responders rib challenge. This year’s teams, competing at the Renfrew Land Ambulance Base on May 5, were from Renfrew Paramedic Service, Renfrew Fire Department, Horton and Douglas volunteer fire departments, Central Ambulance Communications Centre, and the defending Stanley Cup... er, defending rib champions from McNabBraeside Fire Department. It’s a dubious distinction, being judge. Sure, you get to practice eating ribs for weeks in advance. Your wife may say something about trying vegetables and buying stronger bibs, but you don’t mind the dedication required. You need to know your stuff. Enough said. In the name of community service (and having food brought to me with complimentary water and no dishes to clean), well, who was I to refuse. But the fact remains that you’re destined to make far fewer friends than enemies when it comes to picking the top rib. These first responders take tremendous pride in their homemade barby sauce and grilling prowess. Sure, they might be courageous professionals who spend 364 days of the year in a highpressure vocation, training hard and risking everything to save lives. But everyone knows that a true hero is the person who creates a todie-for rib. And not just any to-die-for rib, but the rib crowned king at the third Annual Renfrew Rib Challenge. That’s why I was pleased to share the judging duties with an illustrious panel of local celebrities, including Warden Bob Sweet, county chief administrative officer Jim Hutton, county human resources director Bruce Beakley, and MyFM’s Jamie Cybulsky. Sitting at a table removed from those filling up with folks all morning long generously donating $7 a plate to the cause – money destined for the defibrillator program – we discussed the merits of a fine rib specimen. We were each provided a piece of paper with numbers 1-5 in place of team names, and 1-5 as a rate scale. Apparently this was to ensure “fairness” and to prevent one team from slipping a thick envelope to a newspaper reporter of dodgy moral character. The experience was, in a word, divine. Valhalla on a bone. To have plate after plate of animal carcass brought to your table, to rip into and gorge on said animal part, was truly

At their meeting April 25, the members of Lanark County Council were recognized for their victory over Renfrew County Council in the 2012 ‘Slim to Win’ competition. Councillors and staff members lost 1.4 pounds more than their Renfrew colleagues this year. Lanark County Ambulance Service Deputy Chief Ed McPherson, right, presented the award to Lanark County Warden John Gemmell, victory in the 2011 Slim Till You Win. Despite the antics surrounding winning or losing this health-smart event, Sweet said all participants are win-

ners by pursuing a healthier lifestyle. One supporter of the healthy competition is the Ottawa Heart Institute. Jennifer Harris, its regional manager

for cardiovascular disease prevention and rehabilitation outreach, was part of the Slim Till You Win award presentations last week. Harris, who grew up in Deep River, said the event “engages people to become more physically active ... We know physical activity is the number one thing people can do to improve their health, and sometimes competition is a way for physical activity to be meaningful to them.” In the community challenge, Renfrew County lost 145.8 pounds, for an average loss of 1.6 per person. Lanark’s average loss was 1.3 lb. after shedding a collective 108 pounds. It was even closer in the council challenge. Renfrew County council lost more pounds, but their councillors’ average weight loss was 4.1 pounds, compared to Lanark’s 4.2. Slim Till You Win’s total registration was 156 people, down considerably from last year.

EMC news - The Slim Till You Win competition between Renfrew and Lanark counties has reached a tipping point. Last year, the battle between two counties with the poorest health profiles in all of Ontario faced off in to see whose residents could shed the most body weight and most inches from their waistlines. In 2011, Lanark County’s registered participants outdid Renfrew County in the community challenge, while the rivalry between the two county councils had Renfrew County prevailing to win the early-year council challenge. This year it was the reverse, leaving 2013 to see if one county can capture both titles. “So, we have to do it again,” said a jovial Renfrew County Warden Bob Sweet during the April 25 session of county council.

Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack, chairman of the County of Renfrew’s operations committee, encourages all residents to take part. “Each and every one of us should make a commitment to get involved on Earth Day, and the county’s Adopt-ARoad Program is a terrific way to become involved,” he said.

2 years, it seems like forever… My father, my hero, and my mentor, Wishing you were here every minute of every day, Wishing once more to put that smile on your face. Missing you dad with every passing hour. I’ll never forget your courage or power, You taught me everything, Dad and I’ll never forget, Live life on our own terms with little regrets. I know I’ll see you again, when my time is up. I’ll tell you the story of the Bruins and the Cup. Loving you always and forever,

November 21, 1981 to May 13, 2009 In Loving Memory of our Dear Son. It’s 3 years now Nath. You will always be remembered with great love and tears. Lile did we know that morning, you would pass away. No farewell words were spoken. No me to say goodbye. You were gone before we knew it. Our hearts were torn in two, however you did not go alone, for a part of us went with you. We never knew what a long, lonely, painful journey was ahead of us. Thankfully, we knew how much you loved us & you knew how much we loved you. All of our wishes won’t bring you back, we know that, yet we connue to do so. On a lighter note Nath, your animal park at the coage is looking so good. We finally got the Bear ( Charlie sits on it). We also built a new dock this year & Gramps was there to supervise & tell us what more we need for your park. I almost forgot Nath, Ryan & Devin both got bucks at your tree stand last hunt. Your Dad got a taoo of a buck & cousin Adam got a small mouth bass taoo, both dedicated to you. We miss you, we even miss going up every Friday night and not finding our pontoon boat in disarray with worm boxes upset, rods thrown with broken lines & lures everywhere . If only we could go back, we would gladly dy that disarray any day. For us to only feel pain and sorrow is not fair to you, as we know that is the last thing you would ever want for us. Please be paent, it’s not easy to let you go & say goodbye & sele for your memories, we’re just not there yet. I hope you know the many ways you’ve touched our world & our hearts & to everyone who knew you. Wrap your arms around him Lord, and let him know he is loved unl we get to your land above. Much Love Dad & Mom CL346930

EMC news - More than ever, Ontarians are making the shift to embracing a greener lifestyle, with many commuters opting to use their bicycle as their main mode of transportation. With this in mind, the Canadian Automobile Association’s North and East Ontario branches are offering a new service that provides roadside assistance for people choosing to ride bicycles. Launched April 1, Bike Assist is a new benefit that will allow for CAA members to use their allotted annual service calls for roadside assistance should they encounter a problem with their bicycle and become stranded. Under this new service, CAA will transport the member and the bicycle home or to another safe location of the member’s choosing. “Be it from a flat tire on your car or a broken chain on your bike, CAA North and East Ontario understands that being stranded is frustrating, which is why we are proud to be able to introduce Bike Assist to provide additional peace of mind for our members,” said CAA’s Ken Dumont. Bike Assist will provide coverage for members 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

MILLIKENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GROWING Photo by Derek Dunn

A garden centre was added to the beautiful grounds at Milliken Landscaping (now Landscaping & Garden Centre) on Saturday. Located on Scheel Drive, near McLean Avenue in McNab-Braeside, the 25-year business decided to add the gardening component to offer an even greater array of products and services. Joining John and Lorrayne Milliken at the cascading pond are, from left, Shellie McDiarmid, RaeAnn Laderoute, Katie Shannon, Heather LeBlanc and Nichole Riopelle. Missing were Shirley Potvin, Jill Peever, Jeannie Diotte, Janyne and Stephen Milliken, and Jason Diotte. On Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, this Sunday, 10 per cent of total sales will go toward Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mammography fundraiser.

MUSIC UNIFIES STUDENTS

Arnprior District High School music students joined with musicians from four other Renfrew County high schools at RCI Monday to take part in a cross-Canada musical happening. Hundreds of thousands of students from across Canada united in song at 1 p.m. to raise awareness about the importance of music education in Canadian schools. The event also spreads the word that music classes, specialist teachers and resources are facing drastic cuts and elimination throughout Canada. The nationwide celebration of music featured a simultaneous national performance of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music Monday theme song, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tomorrow is Comingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, written and performed by Juno Award nominated, Canadian Folk Music Award winning artist Luke Doucet. Above, ADHS music instructor Frank Pecore leads the band, while, at right, the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chorus, Red Velvet, belts out a song.

Summer School promises learning, adventure and physical activity EMC news - A sneak peek at high school for Grade 4 students is just one of the courses that will be offered in the Renfrew County Catholic District School Boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Summer School program this July. Summer School, which will run from 8:30 to 11:45 a.m. between July 3 and July 26, is open to the school boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior Kindergarten to Grade

8 students. The board also offers a Credit Recovery Program, which includes webbased learning, for secondary school students to pick up any credits they may have missed during the school year. The programs will be offered at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic School in Arnprior, St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic High School in Renfrew, schools in Pem-

broke, Petawawa, Eganville and Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay. The elementary school program focuses on improvement in numeracy and literacy skills, says Shelley Montgomery, who is co-ordinating the summer program with Jeannie Armstrong, principal at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School in Renfrew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our teachers work hard to

enhance literacy and numeracy skills, but in an interactive and engaging manner,â&#x20AC;? Montgomery says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Board also offers transportation to allow equal access to all of our students in our system.â&#x20AC;? Grade 7 and 8 students will work in a blended learning style, according to Mont-

gomery, which will include face-to-face time with the teacher as well as a software program to create further engagement. The Catholic boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Summer School program is part of a research project that aims to understand the learning gains made by students who attend summer school.

SENIORS

Emerson pays dearly for this little prank EMC lifestyle - There was nothing that frightened me more than going out to the outhouse alone at night. This time of year, when a sudden howling wind and rain storm could strike at any minute, my fear was magnified many times over. By the time May rolled around, Mother had put away the Jerry pots from under the beds, and we were expected to go to the outhouse regardless of the time of day or night. Sometimes at night I could persuade my sister Audrey to go with me, but if she was busy with her scrap books at the kitchen table, it took a lot of coaxing to budge her from her chair. And then I was left to shudder and shake as I wended my way through the summer kitchen, then the back shed, and out into the black night, around the clump of cedars to the little building which served as our bathroom. My three brothers never bothered to take a light with them when they went out at night, but I wouldn’t even go into the back shed without a lantern, so frightened was I. If it was a bad night, with wind howling through the trees and the shed door rattling like someone was trying to break in, I would take Sport, our old collie dog with

me, and make him stay outside the door of the privy. Then I would tear back into the house like someone possessed, never taking a backward glance, in case something evil was on my heels. My brother Emerson delighted in terrifying me, and he was always able to pull off some terrible deed without Mother noticing, which was a real talent of his. When I headed for the privy one night, it happened to be one of those nights when the wind howled and a pounding rain was beating against the shed door. I had squirmed in my chair at the kitchen table, until it was impossible to wait any longer. Audrey was talking on the phone on the wall to her friend Iva, and my three brothers were busy at the things they liked to do at night, playing Snap, whittling, and Emerson drawing the glass buildings he was sure were going to change the world. I was doomed to go out alone. Father took the lantern off the bench near the back door, and put a match to the wick. I stood at the door leading out into the summer kitchen hoping someone would offer to go with me. No one budged. I couldn’t even find Sport. He was probably in the barn hiding from

the pounding rain and wind. I had no choice. I was on my own. I went through the summer kitchen, and I could hear the rain pounding on the tar-paper roof, and pulled open the shed door which was no easy feat at any time. It never quite fitted right, and by the time I got it open, the lantern was flickering, and the rain met me full in the face. I ran the few feet behind the cluster of trees like someone possessed, slammed into the privy, bringing the lantern in behind me. It didn’t take me long to finish the job at hand, but sat there trying to muster up the courage for the return trip back to the house. Well, I had two choices, face it, or spend the night in the privy. I grabbed the lantern and tore towards the shed. I was sure I had left the door open, but it was closed. It opened inward, and I figured one good shove would get me into the

safety of the shed. But it wouldn’t budge. There I was standing in the pouring rain, the wind gathering force, and locked outside the back shed. This had never happened before. I put the lantern on the step, backed up about ten feet

soon obvious to everyone what my brother Emerson was up to. Blood was pouring out his nose, and already his left eye was swollen where he had taken the full blow of the shed door. He didn’t have to be told. He washed his face in the basin on the bench at the back door, wiped his nose on the huck towel, and headed upstairs for bed. Father shook his head and said, “Will that boy ever learn?” Mother said she doubted it and went back to writing in her diaries at the kitchen table.

Seniors homecare report applauded EMC lifestyle – The Ontario Association of Community Care Access Centres (OACCAC) has expressed support for recommendations on a new report on home and community care for seniors. The Health Council of Canada recently released a comprehensive report entitled Seniors in need, caregivers in distress: What are the home care priorities for seniors in Canada? Ontario’s push towards a stronger health care system will require a shift in the way home care is understood, valued, and integrated into the health system - including the way that health care dollars are allocated, concludes the report. “We know that 93 per cent of Canadians prefer to receive care and stay at home for as long as possible,” said Margaret Mottershead, CEO

and made a lunge for the door, hitting it with every ounce of strength in my young body. It hit something solid but there was enough of an opening to let me slide through into the shed. And there lying on the floor, with his hands over his face, was my brother Emerson! “You almost killed me,” he shouted. “Then why were you holding the door?” I wanted to know. There was such a commotion that it brought both Mother and Father out of the kitchen. Father was carrying another lantern, and it was

of the OACCAC. “The benefit to the client is obvious; the benefit to the health care system is a high quality and sustainable care alternative that frees up hospital and long-term care beds for people who need them the most.” The Health Council of Canada’s report reinforces that publicly funded home care needs to be an integral part of a high-functioning health care system. “When home care is properly valued and integrated into the health care system, it can improve the health and well-being of many seniors and their families, and reduce costs to the health care system,” said John G. Abbott, CEO of the Health Council of Canada. The report encourages the spread of the practices to strengthen Canada’s health care system.

FOOD

Fun facts on food EMC lifestyle - Often when I’m reading about food, I come across interesting bits of information. In this week’s column, I’m passing along some food trivia that I thought you might enjoy. The most popular spices in the United States used to be cinnamon and black pepper. In 1986, more than 25 million pounds of cinnamon were consumed. In the same year, pepper consumption was over 75 million pounds. Shredded wheat cereal was developed by a middle-aged lawyer in the 1890s. Kool-Aid has been around for more than 90 years. Shopping carts were invented by an observant grocer who noticed that his customers stopped buying when the small basket on their arm became too heavy. Once upon a time there were no potato chips, then a mechanical potato slicer was invented in the 1920s. By the early 1930s, Frito’s and Lay’s potato chips were introduced, and the rest, as they say, is history. The thickness of an ordinary potato chip is 55/1,000th of an inch. Some, however, such as the ridged chips from Ruffles are twice that thick. There has never been a real Betty Crocker. She was first introduced as a homemaker by General Mills in 1921, but

Food ‘n Stuff PAT TREW

it wasn’t until 1936 that her face was shown. Since then, her face, hairstyle and clothing have been changed at least 7 times. In 1936, she had short, marcel-waved hair. In 1972, her hair was a lightly-teased, more bouffant style, and by 1986, she had taken on a blow-dry look. The inventor of peanut butter was an American doctor who, in the 1890s, ground up peanuts as a nutritious, easily digested food for his older patients. More than 300 uses have been discovered for peanuts, including shampoo and shoe polish. There are over 20,000 edible plants in the world, but most of the food we grow comes from only 20 species. Of these, wheat, rice, corn and potatoes are the world’s major foods. Campbell’s, a name synonymous with soup, was founded in 1869. By 1905, it marketed 21 varieties of condensed soup, plus pork and beans in a can. The company continued

to develop new products over the years. In the period between 1980 and 1986 alone, more than 400 food products were created. In 1920, Charles Ranhofer, former chef of Delmonico’s restaurant, wrote The Epicurean, over 1,000 pages on the “Culinary Art”. It included information on table and wine service, menu suggestions for a variety of restaurant meals, as well as for breakfasts, dancing parties, garden parties, supper buffets and ladies’ luncheons. The book also contains several hundred recipes for making the dishes served in the various menus. He stated that a 14-course dinner, served with 10 minute intervals, would take two hours and 20 minutes. The meal would start with oysters and soup, then move on through a fish course, a course such as beef tenderloin, an entree of perhaps turkey and pheasant, a roast course with one or two meat roasts, salads, and hot and cold desserts.

Join M&M Meats, CCFC to help find Crohn’s cure EMC events - More than 450 M&M Meat Shops across Canada, including the Arnprior outlet, will participate in the 24th annual charity barbecue day this Saturday, May 12. The barbecue runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and benefits the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC). M&M Meat Shops’ franchisees, staff and thousands of volunteers from coast-to-coast will be manning their grills to meet the fundraising goal of $1.5 million. Supporters will receive a hamburger or hot dog, a drink and a bag of chips for a minimum donation of $3. All food and time is donated, so every penny raised goes directly to CCFC Crohn’s and colitis research. For an additional $2, supporters can cool down by purchasing an M&M Meat Shops Strawberry Shortcake Bar with proceeds donated to CCFC. Canada has among the highest incidence of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis - two similar yet distinct conditions also known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) - in the world. Despite this high incidence, IBD is still veiled in silence and shame. There are more than 200,000 Canadians suffering from IBD. It is a painful and unpredictable disorder. There is no known cause or cure and the number of cases continues to grow. This year, M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day is pleased to have 12-year-old Landon Lafond as a CCFC representative for the event. Landon understands all too well what it’s like to live with IBD: “I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease three years ago,” says Landon.

“I love to volunteer and have been proud to help raise money for Crohn’s and colitis research by helping out at M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day, as well as participating in CCFC’s Gutsy Walk. “M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day is an important way to raise money and awareness for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and hopefully, help kids like me feel better.” From humble beginnings, M&M Meat Shops charity barbecue day has grown into CCFC’s largest annual fundraising activity by any single supporter. Over the past 23 years, M&M Meat Shops has raised more than $21.5 million for medical research dedicated to finding a cure for IBD. The money raised through events such as charity barbecue day has allowed CCFC to fund more than $71 million in medical research projects. Until this Sunday, May 13, Canadians can also support IBD research by purchasing and signing a ‘Star’, either in-store at any M&M Meat Shops or online at ccfc.ca/star. For $2, supporters will receive a Star and a chance to win a $500 M&M Meat Shops gift card. For $3, supporters will receive a Star, an M&M Meat Shops Blossom Pastry and double their chance to win a $500 M&M Meat Shops gift card. For $5, supporters will receive a Star, a coupon book worth more than $50 in M&M Meat Shops savings and triple their chance to win a $500 M&M Meat Shops gift card.

As a medical oncologist at The Ottawa Hospital, Dr. Neil Reaume has treated hundreds of cancer patients – and all of them have a story to tell. “Every patient is different in their own way, and everyone has a story that’s touching,” said Reaume, who is also the director of the Hospital’s medical oncology training program. But one story he heard during the inaugural Ride the Rideau event in 2010 – The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s signature fundraising event in support of cancer research at the Hospital – was particularly unforgettable. While volunteering as a ride guide, he met a young woman from Montreal who was riding “the biggest, clunkiest mountain bike I’d ever seen,” he recalled. “I kept running into her at the rest stations. When we saw her at the end, we congratulated her for making such good time. She admitted that she was an avid rider, but that she was riding her dad’s bike – he had died one year to the day of the ride from colon cancer. She had

Medical oncologist Dr. Neil Reaume plans to participate in the third annual event on Saturday, September 8.

found out about Ride the Rideau the week before, and raised $3,000 in just seven days. My jaw just dropped. I won’t forget that one.” The 42-year-old Reaume, who is a member of the Ottawa Triathlon Club, enjoyed the event so much that he returned to Ride the Rideau last year, the event’s second, but this time as one of the 715 riders. Over two years, the event has raised a total of $2.7 million. “The number of people who are inspired by the event is so eye-opening,” he said.

“It shows that people see value in the cause. After all, cancer is documented as the No. 1 killer in Canada. The Ride growing in leaps and bounds is a reflection of how people are embracing the cause.” While cancer touches most people’s lives, Reaume is especially grateful for the incredible success of the event. Ride the Rideau funds the work that he is involved in as a researcher, which includes international lung and kidney cancer studies, as well as other clinical trials. There are over 70 trials currently taking place at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, with thousands of patients taking part annually. Reaume is thrilled that there are so many people out there who are just as passionate about the fight against cancer as he is. Their enthusiasm, he said, is so inspiring that he will be registering for the third annual event on Saturday, September 8. To join Dr. Reaume in the event, or to sign up to volunteer, visit www.ridetherideau.ca.

Diversity

Contentedly at home in his hometown Leading up to the Ottawa Valley’s first Diversity Festival July 7 in Renfrew, organizers invite you to meet some of the many diverse individuals who make up our unique and wonderful community.

EMC lifestyle - Dave Brash of Renfrew says country music can sometimes bring a tear to his eye. Other than that, Brash, 54, keeps on smiling, though he has faced some tough challenges in his life. If you’ve been down Raglan Street in Renfrew, you’ve probably seen Dave Brash. “I’ve always had a hard time sleeping,” says Brash, who often rises at 2 a.m. and heads out to start a day that consists of a lot of walking and sitting. “I quit when I get tired,” he says with a laugh. Brash, 54, was born and raised in Renfrew, growing up on June Street in a family that included five brothers and four sisters. He is the third youngest in the family and said he had a pretty happy childhood. He now lives in an apartment above Raglan Street and can often be seen sitting on one of his favourite benches. “I love it here. It’s a nice little town,” says Brash. His favourite spot? The main street, of course. People, for the most part, are friendly. “Everybody I know always comes up and talks to me,” says Brash. And often, people are quick to offer their loose change when he returns their grocery cart or offers to carry their bags. It’s this extra cash that helps the bingo fan take part in his favourite pastime each week at the Wing. TRAGEDY AT 18

Dave Brash hospital in Ottawa. The long-term effects have meant a meagre life trying to make ends meet on Ontario Disability Support Program payments. It hasn’t been easy, says Brash, but he’s found much support around him. The community and business owners have been very supportive, offering odd jobs and tasks to help keep him afloat. “I put out garbage and do other odd jobs,” says Brash. Once a user of the Renfrew food bank, Brash says he hasn’t gone back after being told identification was required to make use of the service. The Salvation Army and other local agencies have also been a source of support for him over the years. Brash will volunteer at the July 7 Diversity Festival and is excited to see Low Square and downtown come alive for the event.

It was a good week for members and supporters of Canadian Parents of Murdered Children (CPOMC) and Survivors of Homicide Victims. On April 20, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced a new income support program for parents who take time off work to cope with the death or disappearance of a child as a result of a crime. Then on April 23, 13 people received Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals for their exceptional support of CPOMC and survivors of homicide victims in Canada. One of the recipients was Susan Love, whose son, Phillip, a former Arnprior resident, was murdered in Dartmouth, N.S., in 2007. CPOMC chairman Yvonne Harvey of Carleton Place praised the government for “demonstrating leadership and dedication regarding the needs of victims of crime and their families.” Husband Gary Lindfield, who’s also a CPOMC board member, said the government is really stepping up to help victims. He cited the examples of this new support and the recent Omnibus Bill that features harsher minimum sentences for crimes against children. After receiving her medal, Love said, “I am absolutely humbled, honoured and blessed for being chosen as a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.” One of the founding members of CPOMC, she added, “Sadly, victims do not have a voice, I do and I will continue to speak on behalf on my son, Phillip, and all murdered victims, while moving forward.” Love said she’ll continue to work behind the scenes to support homicide victims. It was also in 2007 that Harvey’s daughter, Chrissy, as murdered. Shortly afterwards, Harvey, Love and Lindfield founded the CPOMC as a national voice for homicide victims and other survivors of those crimes. In addition to being the chairperson for CPOMC, Harvey now speaks to victim-service providers, police services, law students, lawyers and legislators about the impact of murder on the family unit. In seeking to raise awareness of the need for rights in the constitution for survivors of homicide victims, she has also made submissions to Canadian Senate’s standing committee on legal and constitutional affairs and to the House of Commons’ standing committee on justice and human rights. Others presented with diamond jubilee medals Monday included Sharon Rosenfeldt of Carleton Place whose son was one of the first victims of serial killer Clifford Olson. In the ensuing workshop whose theme was Stop Blaming the Victim, Dr. Hamblin-Lazaro and Walker were two of the guest speakers. The other was Edmonton police officer Namrata Gill, a survivor of an arranged and abusive marriage.

Susan Love receives her diamond jubilee medal from Yvonne Harvey, left, and Gary Lindfield of Canadian Parents of Murdered Children and Survivors of Homicide Victims. Dr. Lazaro offered advice after giving examples of how family members became victims of media coverage following the murder of her own daughter. She talked about how her daughter’s death became a story that “went beyond a tragic, senseless death” to entertainment and the presentation of inaccurate information and conclusions. She also advised the media to be “gentle to survivors” while seeking to understand or describe their plight. ADVICE FOR VICTIMS

Walker, who’s been a journalist for almost 23 years, gave an emotional and thorough presentation. Her talk contained advice for victims of horrible crimes. She also weaved that advice through the story of how she has minimized or eliminated some of her own personal ghosts after being sexually abused as a child. Years after that experience, she decided to go public about her encounter with the help of her teenage daughter Kyra, who was among about 70 people in the audience for the workshop. “I want to help others, people like you, wade through the trauma associated with violence, loss and the struggle to simply survive and, hopefully, eventually thrive. “By doing so, by talking about this openly here in Ottawa City Hall, we fight stigma. And, as victims, you have to deal with the impact of crime, sometimes in front of your loved ones, your neighbours, and sometimes strangers, because of the media.” The crime against her was sexual assault by the older brother of a friend during a sleepover, happened when she was nine years old.

She came forward to name the perpetrator several years after the crime, partly because she was the first intended target of the killer who took fellow journalist Brian Smith’s life in 1995. She’s now glad she stepped forward, partly, as she says, because “we need to be outraged. We can’t look the other way. There is an epidemic of child sexual abuse.” For families who are victims of crime, her advice included finding a good reporter to help the family tell its story; avoid media scrums (instead, arrange a news conference at your lawyer’s office so there’s some semblance of control); and designate a spokesperson for the family because the media needs to talk to someone, and they might as well talk to someone who’s informed.

THIS WEEK’S FEATURE

EMC news - Municipalities across Eastern Ontario are struggling financially because of a limited tax base, rising debt and a growing need for long-term infrastructure funding. Those sobering conclusions from the Eastern Ontario Financial Sustainability Update Project were released in March, but the Renfrew County chief administrative officer summarized the findings in a presentation to county council April 25. “A lot of the data we’ve heard before, but it has never been compiled on a regional basis,” said CAO Jim Hutton of the report that’s considered a landmark analysis. “And that’s the real difference with this study. It’s a study of 114 different municipalities in eastern Ontario … and this brings it all together.” Of the 114 municipalities, 103 are considered rural. Many of the report’s more than 90 pages document why eastern Ontario municipal governments require more multiyear sustainability funding from the provincial and federal governments. The report was produced by consultant Kathryn Wood of Natural Capital Resources. The consolidated document strengthens EOWC’s database for lobbying the federal and provincial government for long-term sustainable funding, says Hutton. One finding is that rural municipalities in eastern Ontario need to find an additional $500- to $600-million per year just to maintain existing capital assets, such

as roads and bridges, over the next decade. Another sore point with eastern Ontario municipalities is the total lack of assessment dollars from Crown land. The provincial government doesn’t provide any taxation revenue, even though Crown land covers about half of Renfrew County. Major answers to multi-year infrastructure funding, says the report, would include Crown land taxation revenue and a share of provincial gas tax revenue. The latter already goes to communities that run rapid-transit systems, and to some municipalities, such as Renfrew (which receives about $178,000 for its Sunshine Coach shuttle service for seniors and disabled residents). All Canadian municipalities already receive a share of the federal gas tax revenue. One section of the report is entitled Hitting the Wall on Ability to Pay. That section refers to how discretionary reserve funds peaked in 2008, reserves per household have flattened over the past decade, and policies and programs have limited options for the rural parts of eastern Ontario. Examples of limiting policies include the lack of Crown land taxation revenue, farm tax programs, and the absence of provincial gas tax revenue. County councillors and staff argue that Renfrew County’s mass-transit system is it roads, especially since the Canadian Pacific Railway is abandoning the line between Mattawa and Smiths Falls. The report speaks about the region’s

eroding capital assets base and how municipalities are spending only two-thirds of what is needed to maintain assets on an annual basis. These assets include roads, water and sewer systems, and public facilities. Highly dispersed populations are contributing to this situation, says the report. It’s noted that rural eastern Ontario has almost as many households as the City of Ottawa, but spread over a much larger geographic area. And the repercussions are staggering. For example, the cost of building a onekilometre lane of road is split among 25 households in separated cities, but by only five households in rural eastern Ontario. Roads and bridges are a particular concern, given that rural eastern Ontario is responsible for 73 per cent of the region’s roads and 60 per cent of its bridges and culverts. The report also notes that over the past 10 years, more than half of eastern Ontario municipalities have seen their reserves fall, as a percentage of their total operating revenue. In summary, the report said that EOWC’s fiscal priorities this year are: • sustained infrastructure funding dedicated to roads and bridges; • protection of the tax base from more downloading; • improved farm and managed-forest policies; • compensation from Crown land; • maintained funding levels from the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund.

Gallant defends mental health ‘consolidation’ at CFB Petawawa 0510 R0011398423

R0011397911

80 ELGIN ST. W, ARNPRIOR

EMC news – The closing of an Ottawa mental health office serving military personnel makes sense because the it means better service at CFB Petawawa, says Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. In a news release last Friday after media reports slamming cutbacks in the service, Gallant welcomed the decision by Defence Minister Peter MacKay to consolidate mental health services to CFB Petawawa. “I am very pleased that the Minister of Defence responded favourably to my request to provide the necessary health care services at CFB Petawawa instead of placing soldiers and their families at an inconvenience by having to travel to Ottawa,” she said.

She explained that the satellite detachment in Ottawa and all its mental health provider positions are being moved to CFB Petawawa. She maintained that all personnel using the facility are Petawawa-based members receiving treatment in Ottawa. “Our government believes Canadian Forces members are better treated where they work, train and live,” observed Gallant. “This decision will significantly decrease the amount of time soldiers spend away from their families and their units, as they will no longer have to travel to Ottawa for their appointments, For those military members in Ottawa, ill and injured personnel are still offered mental health programs at Montfort Hospital. “To be clear, our decisions are based on the interests of those receiving treatment.” Gallant insisted the government is committed to ensure that the best possible support for members with mental or physical illness or injuries is provided. Canada has become a world leader in fighting the stigmatization and raising awareness of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other operational stress injuries, she said.

The Red Trillium Studio Tour is held semi-annually amidst the rolling hills and countryside of West Carleton. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 26th spring tour is set to take place this Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s self-guided, free admission, spring tour features more than 30 of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading artists and artisans as well as three gardens. The artists will be located at 10 studios/locations in the area. They are located in areas of West Carleton such as Woodlawn, Constance Bay, McLarenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landing, Carp, etc. Tour organizer Catharine Nutt said the tour continues to be popular due to the diversity of the work shown

and the fact that artists are clustered together in several areas in West Carleton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a variety of artists. I think the tour is a success because the studios are always changing and we bring in new people,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have people who return year after year as well.â&#x20AC;? New artists this year include Richard Charlebois, who creates lifelike marquetry using unusual wood blends cut and assembled, creating artistic images. Another newcomer is Jill Alexander, who uses acrylics to produces vibrant paintings with sculptural texture. Megan DufďŹ eld designs and manufacturers her womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing from organic, natural and quality fabrics. Jeffery Sugarman does traditional ďŹ gurative, still life and landscape oil painting. Loretta Moore will be offering her primitive rugs hooked with hand-dyed, wool fabric strips and Randy Gill, who has done a 180

degree turnaround from his tech job, is working with ďŹ re and iron to create his beautifully hand-wrought works including decorative and functional pieces. Nutt said she thinks tour-goers like the fact there is a lot of variety in the art that is presented as well as the atmosphere in which tour-goers ďŹ nd themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just pure art, one dimensional or two dimensional art, it is a variety,â&#x20AC;? Nutt told the Chronicle Guide EMC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do have the artists on site. A lot of the time, they are working on their art during the tour.â&#x20AC;? She also noted the spring tour is very popular because some people come strictly to see the gardens, while others are more interested in the art. The artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work this spring includes gardens, paintings, bookbinding, drawing, pottery, stained glass, glass blowing, pewter, basketry, woodwork, fabric art, Santa Dolls,

photography, sculpture, and carving to name but a few. The three gardens on the tour will each be offering something different in terms of landscape and water features. Lynda and John Soper are presenting their garden with ponds, rock outcroppings and many raised beds. Lynda also had pottery for all tastes. Garden containers are also available. SHADE GARDEN

Joan McNab is opening her peaceful, mostly shade garden with a small ďŹ sh pond. Wander through the many paths and discover the vast variety of plants that survive in the shade. Richard Inchley will be showcasing his pond plants and ďŹ sh for sale. They will also be building a pond for display purposes. He also has a number of perennials for sale. The Master Gardeners will be on hand at McNabâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden to dis-

pense free advice and they have a large number of great plants for sale. On Saturday (May 12), the workAbles Group (a group of handicapped adults) will be serving a light tea with other goodies for sale in the Masonic Hall on Carp Road. Visitors can also can get some great food and drink at one of the many great pubs and restaurants in West Carleton. Nutt, who also organized the Red Trillium fall studio tour, said both tours are incredibly popular with artists as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always have new people coming in. We have a waiting list all the time,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding she is already taking in work to be juried for the fall tour. Red Trillium Studio Tour brochures and maps at many locations throughout the city. Information is available by calling Catharine Nutt at 13-839-2793.

Former Antrim market vendor moves to new Almonte site Tara Gesner

tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC news - For three months, beginning last August, Mississippi Mills resident Hugh Roney was a vendor at the Antrim Flea Market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came into a whole pile of (VHS) videotapes,â&#x20AC;? he said. However, the ďŹ&#x201A;ea market closed permanently in October and there was nowhere for the vendors to go. Soon after, Roney approached North Lanark Agricultural Society (NLAS) board member Glen Syme regarding

a ďŹ&#x201A;ea market in Almonte - located at the fairgrounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Receptive, he brought the idea to the executive committee,â&#x20AC;? Roney said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and if they liked it, the initiative would be presented to the (full) board.â&#x20AC;? They did. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was told to see what I could do,â&#x20AC;? Roney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was also told that I was going to manage it.â&#x20AC;? The Almonte Flea Market celebrated its opening day Sunday, running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We operate every Sunday

from May until October - with the exception of the Tractor Pull (May 27), Almonte Fair (July 20-22) and North Lanark Highland Games (Aug. 25),â&#x20AC;? Roney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The games are held on a Saturday, but they do the clean up on Sunday.â&#x20AC;? The Almonte Flea Market, which is owned by the NLAS, will offer a huge selection of products from over 75 vendors, and visitors are sure to ďŹ nd deals on the items they want and need. In addition, refreshments will be sold on site.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Indoors and outdoors, we are utilizing the complete space at the fair grounds - with the exception of the Agricultural Hall and new Education Barn,â&#x20AC;? Roney said. The general manager felt Almonte needed a market like this - a place people can come to shop, relax and enjoy a moment with friends and family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almonte is a great place to come,â&#x20AC;? Roney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have everything here, and it is so close to Ottawa. It is easy to justify spending

range ceramic plates and mugs, table mats and runners that are available. As always the Food Court is open with a wide range of snacks and drinks to tempt the palate and restore ďŹ&#x201A;agging energies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Traditionally the Saturday before Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day marks the kick-off of our marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular season,â&#x20AC;? says Carp Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market president Robert Dobson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very much a growing concern. There are nine new faces among our vendors for the 2012 season and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all looking forward to greeting old friends and making new ones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any new vendor is juried in to ensure that this market maintains a consistent, high quality in the local product that we offer our clients â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and our systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty tough one,â&#x20AC;? he added. Parking is free and â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping that Mother Nature sends us a sunny day for the season start up but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re open for business, rain or shine.â&#x20AC;?

Zepplin was rescued from euthanasia at a local pound. He is a large, friendly boy, that loves to talk. Zepplin is affectionate and loves to be petted. He likes to sit in the window and watch birds or lay in the sunshine. Zepplin does not like other cats and would be best suited in a home as the only pet. He will make a wonderful companion.

ally hard,â&#x20AC;? Roney said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the planning was done before Christmas. Now we are into the physical.â&#x20AC;? Without the dedication of the vendors or the support of the NLAS, town and business community, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we would not be where we are today,â&#x20AC;? Roney said.
