EMC news – An emergency meeting between the township and town had one side offering a small timeline tweak and the other pleading for a complete reconsideration. It ended with neither getting its way. McNab-Braeside council asked if it should continue to cut cheques to pay for its residents’ library and recreation use to the end of the year, then switch over to a one-year pilot project where it will have users top up costs for various town programs. Arnprior council kept avoiding the question in favour of arguing for the current lump-sum payment system, but to no avail. The Tuesday morning meeting at the Arnprior Library had the two councils and staffers at two facing tables. The physical gulf between them was about 10 feet, but the policy gulf remains much farther apart (for submissions from the two mayors, see Page 10). At the meeting chaired by Arnprior Mayor David Reid, the town set June 30 as the deadline for McNab-Braeside to come on board with substantial cost increases. He said the library must plan for summer programming and the Nick Smith Centre is getting ready for the fall hockey season. See DIFFERENCES Page 2

OFF TO THE RACES

EMC news – A grand opening will take place this Saturday morning at the new location of the Arnprior Farmers’ Market in the curling club parking lot. Market president Mark Gaetz said the same variety of produce suppliers, artisans and more will have tables set up, but the new digs mean a safer experience for all involved. “There’s a lot of great parking for our seniors,� Gaetz said. “And it’s a lot safer. No worries of vehicular traffic. It intimidated customers and venders.� The former location was in a few

cordoned-off parking spots on Elgin Street, out front of Antiques Etc. in downtown Arnprior. About 12 to 15 vendors participated, including: Mary Campbell’s ready-made dinners, preserves and jams; Gaetz’s Gableridge Farm offering black Angus meat, fresh veggies and baked goods; Slater’s Bakery with its breads; MacGregor’s Produce, artist Ian Bartlett’s Studio 38 works, a fresh ground coffee company; and more. Valley Heritage Radio could be back again to liven up the atmosphere with music, and community groups such as Chest Nuts Dragonboat team and others are always welcome to set

The saga of relocating the farmers’ market was detailed in a recent Chronicle-Guide EMC story. Gaetz said town hall was unco-operative at best and non-communicative at worst. Mayor David Reid vowed to find out where communication broke down and have a staffer get back to Gaetz.

Gaetz said Reeve Walter Stack was looking into the location issue for him, but didn’t get back to him either. “I’ve pretty much wiped my hands of all that,� he said, confirming no one from town hall has contacted him. He said farmers’ markets are a great way to support local businesses, lessen one’s carbon footprint, save gas money, get non-factory raised meats and organic produce, and catch up with neighbours. “For it to be an overall success, we need – not just vendors – but the support of people in town,� he said. “We are hopeful the community will come out and support us.�

Differences between councils highlighted at emergency meeting Continued from front

Reid later added that town residents pay three times the amount township residents do; the township has paid the about the same amount for two decades now; and that as the gap widens with time a resolution becomes more difďŹ cult. He said both chief librarian Karen Deluca and recreation director Glenn Arthur experienced user fees in the past, agreeing they drive up administration costs and are impractical. For instance, identifying every hockey player that comes in through various doors at the recreation facility is unreasonable, he said. Reid pointed to agreements among a few nearby municipalities – agreements similar to those in place between the town and township – as the way to go. McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell said the library and recreation agreements are very different matters. With the library it’s about three principles: • accountability – council doesn’t know how the money it sends over is spent; • transparency – ratepayers should know the true cost, meaning the township can call residents and ask how often they use their card; • equity – it isn’t fair that those closest to Renfrew are subsidized $35, and those closest to Arnprior are at $60. DIFFERENT GENERATIONS

Township Coun. Aldene Styles spoke to how different her generation was to that of today’s parents when it came to paying for recreation services. Hers made tough decisions. “I understand minor hockey,� she said. “Young people today have to understand they can’t get everything.� She’s heard from just as many constituents siding with that view as those who want ratepayers to pay collectively for services through the tax base. Campbell went further, saying she talked to a hockey dad who “doesn’t realize� that his neighbour is paying for his kids’ sports. Later she would say, while not a hockey mom, that the cost of minor hockey is a lot of money, “scary money.� The discussion digressed into opposing statistics on usage, before Campbell began to muse aloud about outdoor hockey and swimming lessons that would be less cost prohibitive. She then mentioned a few of her residents pay out-of-town rates in contravention of the current agreement, before saying the town-

The gulf between the McNab-Braeside and Arnprior council was not gapped during an emergency meeting Tuesday between the two over the differences in how the town should be compensated for township residents using recreation and library facilities. ship’s name rarely appears among those paying for the services – and not as prominently as Arnprior companies do for special events. “That’s an embarrassment to this council,â€? Campbell said of the overpayment. If true, Reid said, whoever was responsible for charging township residents inappropriately would be ďŹ red; but that administration problems will happen under any system. It would be simple to have McNab-Braeside’s name appear more often, he added. Reid tried to address a number of “misconceptionsâ€? around accountability and transparency by saying the township has representative on the library board, but Campbell dismissed them as “liaisonâ€? roles with no voting clout. He said recreation users can’t be treated equally, because some will go for two-week swimming lessons while others play hockey for six months. “We can’t charge one fee for all. It’s ridiculous,â€? he said. “It’s up to your organization how to do it,â€? said Township Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie, echoing the idea that McNab-Braeside could offer more programs. CULTURE VS. BUSINESS

Reid tried the slippery slope argument, asking if the township was going to force residents to pay for garbage, schools and other services. “We do pay for garbage,� Campbell replied. “We understand garbage thank you very much.� The township pays for what it can afford, such as soccer pitches, said Campbell, and welcomes residents from everywhere to use them. She pointed to nearby rural municipalities that take the same approach. Reid steered the conversa7,&2

between Arnprior and Renfrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s libraries, she switched from the former to the latter. Town council and staff gasped collectively at what appeared as a playing off of the two towns. That was the point in the meeting when Reid became visibly frustrated. He listed all the town paid-for services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including the ďŹ re departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst response service with its jaws of life that have been to the township 22 times â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that beneďŹ t area jurisdictions, adding township ratepayers pay half the amount town ratepayers do. Blimkie said some of those services beneďŹ t Pakenham and other non-township residents, and that township ďŹ re ďŹ ghters respond to town calls. Campbell said maybe the ďŹ rst responders should be relocated to Braeside. Then she added, angrily, as if to remind herself of the point she agreed to the meeting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this business of paying ďŹ rst â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over.â&#x20AC;? She said all the little increases and decisions made â&#x20AC;&#x153;hidden in the lump sumâ&#x20AC;? wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen anymore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can see youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re upset, so I will ask again where to the send the $57,000,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said, regaining composure. If the town wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take them money, the township will either split it among users or give it back to ratepayers. Town Coun. Dan Lynch, as if sensing no agreement will be reached, seemed to speak to residents not at the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our youths and seniors are going to suffer, shame on us,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that crime is likely to rise if kids are not participating in recreation. Reid said the programs will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;out a considerable amount of moneyâ&#x20AC;? and that fees could jump by 50 per cent. Campbell reminded Reid that he has a choice: keep the status quo for the remainder of 2012 and participate in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pilot projectâ&#x20AC;? of a user fee/subside system for 2013.

tion away from rural culture and ideological differences back to the cost of doing business, saying a user-fee approach is â&#x20AC;&#x153;unsustainable.â&#x20AC;? He added that it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fair to have township residents with businesses in town pay town taxes but not get a break on services. He said the township is asking the town to take on all the administration costs and statistical compilations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not asking you to do anything right now,â&#x20AC;? Campbell said. She then talked about families who snowmobile, take pony lessons and other activities but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect the ratepayer to contribute. Reid said the public is debating the need for a library, so he took a moment to say usage is rising and that Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is among the most efďŹ cient in the province. It was one of the few points the mayors agree on, but Campbell said the â&#x20AC;&#x153;wonderfulâ&#x20AC;? service is evolving far beyond what the township needs. Reid talked about its programs open to all surrounding communities and the meeting room used by cancer awareness groups with members from living outside town. He said the township didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t participate in the master plan process or the idea for a joint recreation committee. He concluded by saying the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books are audited annually. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can be as accountable to your residents as we are to ours.â&#x20AC;? Campbell said two other county municipalities can run their ice pads for $750,000, yet Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cost is $1.5 million. Reid said if she looks at Renfrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costs, it is more than Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s per person.

County examines detour possibilities

Smog advisory declared, lifted

Steve Newman

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In what could be the beginning of a long, hot late spring and summer, the Arnprior area was included in a smog advisory on the weekend. A smog advisory area declared by the Ontario Ministry of the Environment was expanded during the mid-afternoon Sunday to include

a large area of Eastern Ontario, including Ottawa and much of Renfrew and Lanark counties. Hot and sunny conditions with southerly winds resulted in elevated smog levels in southern, central, northern, and eastern Ontario. The smog advisory was lifted just after 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Increasing wind speeds allowed for mixing and dispersion of pollutants, resulting in cleaner air in the air quality, explained the ministry. With a hotter and drier summer than normal predicted, it is expected to be the first of many smog advisories this summer.

EMC news - As Highway 417 expansion moves up through the Valley, more discussions are expected between Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and County of Renfrew officials to identify more detour routes. A meeting took place in Arnprior recently with representatives from the Arnprior Fire Department, the Town of Arnprior, Renfrew County, MTO and the OPP to talk about detour routes as Highway 417 expansion moves past Arnprior. It remains to be seen if MTO will financially compensate Renfrew County or its municipalities for heavy traffic use on these emergency detour routes, or EDRs. Renfrew County public works director Dave Darch said discussions are certainly expected, for the purpose of identifying future detour routes and determining what MTO directional signs appear on those routes. MTO indicated in recent conversations that there is no financial compensation. But Renfrew County operations manager Steve Boland, who attended the late-April meeting, said MTO may have offered some compensation to southern Ontario municipalities. If so, compensation is worth pursuing, Boland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good for the goose, is good for the gander.â&#x20AC;? Regardless of the level of future financial assistance, Darch says the growing need to identify more detour routes will increase as Highway 417 construction moves toward Renfrew. At present, signage is â&#x20AC;&#x153;fairly minimal,â&#x20AC;? but that topic needs more discussion, said Boland. Horton council members made similar comments at their May 1 council meeting. They noted that detoured drivers often follow the car in front of them, which results in more traffic on roads that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of official detour routes.

Reduce medical errors to save lives and money: author Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – Critics of austerity measures say cutting hospital beds and workers isn’t the best way to save money. It seems counter-intuitive, but they maintain the best way is to open more beds and hire more cleaning staff. It would have the added benefit of preventing some 24,000 Canadians deaths caused by medical errors every year, they add. The critics stopped by Arnprior May 18 on a whirlwind tour of 15 cities and towns, including Ottawa. Their analogy is that of three jumbo jets crashing every week, killing 1,153 people, and how governments would move quickly to solve that problem. But when it comes to medical errors in the health-care system - where 18 per cent of patients are harmed - nothing is done. “It’s just taken as a string of personal tragedies that happen to individual families that no one links together,” said Michael Hurley, president of the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU). “We tolerate a failure level of one in five in the face of scientific studies that show how we can stop it.” William Charney, editor of the newly released book Epidemic of Medical Errors and Hospital-Acquired Infections, said governments have known for 20 years that overcrowding and improper cleaning are costly both in human suffering and tax spending. The book probes the systemic causes of preventable hospital deaths, including unsafe patient volumes, inadequate staffing levels, shift work, health care working conditions, lack of accountability, legal issues that conflict with patient safety issues, and staff training. Cutting jobs and inefficiencies in many sectors of the economy can improve the bottom line. Health care isn’t one of those sectors, Charney explained.

Michael Hurley, left, and Epidemic of Medical Errors and Hospital-Acquired Infections editor William Charney discuss the benefits of investing in nurses and hospital cleaners. Preventing errors and illnesses could save 24,000 Canadians annually and between $7 and $10 billion.

When patients develop bedsores, C. difficile, and other hospital-acquired illnesses, the treatment cost can rise dramatically: anywhere from $10,000 to $85,000 in the case of bedsores. Properly staffed hospitals with nurses to routinely turn patients in the case of bedsores

and workers to clean railings and other surfaces, would save tax dollars over the long haul, said Charney. He said Ontario Health Minister Deb Matthews’s approach that could see service and spending freezes is wrong-headed. Canada already spends between $7 and $10 billion an-

nually on resolving medical errors and hospital infections. Together they are the second leading cause of death. “If you really want to go on austerity measures, this is how you do it: Putting money upfront will not only prevent errors and needless deaths, it will save health care dollars, because hospital stays will be shorter and liability costs will go down,” said Charney, who has 30 years of experience as a health and safety officer in Canadian and U.S. hospitals. “The minister has it all wrong.” However, the McGuinty Liberal government has a simple message that resonates: cut spending and reduce the $15-billion deficit. The counter message takes longer to explain, but Hurley and Charney are confident that when Ontarians understand the science, statistics and analysis arguments for increasing healthcare spending, the government will change course. “Governments need to have the political will to tackle this epidemic and to change the culture of the medical establishment to one of openness and accountability to prevent needless deaths,” Charney said. “A motive of costcutting in the hospital sector is fueling errors. This includes an obsession with cost-cutting through understaffing nurses and cleaners.” This fall, OCHU will push to have legislation requiring mandatory reporting of medical errors and hospital-acquired infections introduced at Queen’s Park. “The personal suffering this results in is staggering,” Hurley said. “But preventable medical errors are going to get worse if the Ontario government cuts hospital budgets and thousands more beds as planned. “Heightened patient volumes, unsafe bed occupancy rates and reduced cleaning have resulted in an environment that puts patients at risk.” Ontario has the fewest hospital beds per population of any province in Canada.

Free one-day depot set up for agricultural plastics Lucy Hass

EMC news - Farming is all about land stewardship: protecting and preserving the natural environment. Advancements in farming have, however, handed the farm community a range of environmental challenges. Among those is disposal of farm film and agricultural plastic and bale wrap. On this Saturday, May 26 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. area farmers will have a chance to do the right thing and take their plastics to a depot for proper disposal and recycling at Renfrew County Recycling at 60 Lisgar Ave. in Renfrew. The one-time depot offers free recycling and disposal. Plastics must be clean, dry and preferably not baled. Baled wrap will have to be cut open and in-

spected. Organizers of the depot point out that when some plastics are burned, a group of highlytoxic chemicals are emitted. Burning plastic can cause cancer and is illegal. If you smell burning plastic, determine the location, try to educate the person burning the plastic about the health and environmental consequences, or call 9-1-1 immediately. The Renfrew County Soil and Crop Committee contributed the first $200 to kick off the plastics depot program. The Renfrew County Cattlemenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association and Ontario Federation of Agriculture added their support. Next were the Renfrew County Holstein Club and Dairy Farmers of Renfrew County. The money raised is being used to advertise the one-day recycling depot across Renfrew County.

Bring in your old tires, make a dream possible EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Arnprior/Ottawa Auto Parts is again participating in a tire collection to raise money for the Sunshine Foundation of Canada. From May 28 to June 2, the auto parts yard at 5445 Madawaska Blvd. in Arnprior is accepting tires during regular business hours (weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. to noon). Ontarians can drop as many used tires as they want off for free at participating members of the Ontario Automotive Recyclers Associa-

tion next week. All allowances received by the auto parts outlets for collecting the tires will be donated to the Sunshine Foundation, an organization that helps dreams come true for children challenged by severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. The automotive association will match all funds raised by its members. The tire collection raised more than $123,000 last year. The event, which is also supported by the Ontario Tire Stewardship group, is in its third year.

ARNPRIOR 150

M-B gives Arnprior horse and buggy rides John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC events - McNab-Braeside is contributing to Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th birthday celebrations by providing horse and buggy rides. Council has agreed to offer the rides from noon to 6 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, June 9 and 10, the anniversary weekend. Pinto Valley Ranch was the low bidder when the township put the rides out for proposals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to do something for Arnprior,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Brad McIlquham. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our 150 gift.â&#x20AC;? Council agreed it would be preferable and more visible to sponsor an event, rather than give money. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;historic horse and buggyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rides will be held on the Galilee Centre property next to the main festivities in Robert Simpson Park. Councillors decided on that venue after expressing concern there would likely be

safety and liability problems if the horse and buggy rides were located on town streets or in Robert Simpson Park. The town is expected to host large crowds of visitors during the much-anticipated weekend full of events, so the park and streets will be jam-packed. Once Galilee gave approval, the rides were ofďŹ cially located there. The township asked Galilee ofďŹ cials if they wanted riders to be asked for a donation to go back to the centre, as Arnprior had indicated McNab-Braeside could charge for the rides. However, Galilee replied that if it is to be compensated, it would like plants for its gardens. That pleased council, which noted that Waba Museum Committee members would likely be delighted to share some of their plants from the much-admired gardens in White Lake.

GAME ON FOR THE 150TH

The professional looking Arnprior-opoly game is now available for sale around town. The game was created, or revived say some, by a pair of Arnprior Rotarians (see page 12) to help mark the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th birthday. It will double as fundraiser, as local companies and organizations have purchased properties around the board. The games sell for $24.95 and 1,000 are available as 150th anniversary keepsakes.

CWL to hold 150 anniversary pie-making contest EMC events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The St. John Chrysostom Catholic Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s League is marking Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150 anniversary by ďŹ nding out who are the best pie-makers in town. The CWL is holding a pie-making contest that is open to all cooks. There are four pie categories â&#x20AC;&#x201C; butterscotch, rhubarb, apple and raisin.

A ďŹ fth pie category, coconut cream, is only open to cooks at local businesses. Judging will take place at Robert Simpson Park on anniversary Saturday (June 9) from noon to 6 p.m. For more information about the contest, contact Helen McGregor at 613-623-5476 or Kristine Dewar at 613-623-9262.

Fitzroy resident, ADMH shine spotlight on cancer Wife, mother shares story of breast cancer battle in hopes of helping others Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The last thing Leigh Ann Kyte ever wanted was to be in the spotlight. But if even one person is helped by hearing her story, she is prepared to tell it. In late fall 2009, the Fitzroy Harbour wife and mother of two found a lump in her breast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kind of put it off for a few weeks thinking it was nothing,â&#x20AC;? says Kyte. A visit with her general practitioner and she was on her way for an ultrasound and mammogram. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The results were in, in two days max,â&#x20AC;? says Kyte, a federal government employee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it came back as cancer.â&#x20AC;? Although Kyte did have a nagging feeling about the lump, the news came as a blow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was shocking,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I totally was not expecting that.â&#x20AC;? Surgery was performed in January and chemotherapy sessions started in April. Six rounds of chemo and 20 of radiation were a long haul for Kyte and her family. Kite said time seemed to be creeping along but she was lucky diagnosis and treatment happened were immediate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking back on it, everything happened rather quickly,â&#x20AC;? she says.

appointments, put things into perspective for Kyte. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would always be laying there with Jeff or my mom beside me. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the worst thing in the world,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a really great support system.â&#x20AC;? Of course, there were down days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Losing my hair was not fun,â&#x20AC;? recalls Kyte. Her positive attitude didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you just have to take it step by step, day by day. I never once for a minute thought â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;this is going to be it for me,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Kyte. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I knew it was going to be a tough road to go down.â&#x20AC;? What surprised Kyte most about her journey? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess just how strong and supportive people are when it comes right down to it,â&#x20AC;? she says. Husband Jeff and kids Ryan, 15, and Emily, 13, joined other family members, friends and the community in supporting Kyte through the rough times. She was amazed at how everyone seemed to come forward with support and love and words of encouragement. Early detection and treatment are what saved Kyte, which is one reason sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100 per cent behind the campaign that is underway to raise funds for a digital mammography unit at Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital (ADMH).

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I credit my doctor and the Arnprior hospital,â&#x20AC;? she says. Now cancer free, she still checks herself regularly and urges others to do so. CAMPAIGN

The West Carleton and Angrier communities have come out in full support of the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to secure the much-needed equipment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The campaign is going extremely well. Our community, which includes supporters from Carp, Fitzroy Harbor, Kinburn and Pakenham has generously stepped forward to help raise funds for the digital mammography unit. The next event supporting the campaign will be the Breast Ball Tournament presented by the Co-operators on June 1,â&#x20AC;? says Wendy Knechtel, manager communications and fund development for ADMH and the Grove. A digital mammogram can detect a breast cancer tumor the size of an apple seed, explains Knechtel, while the average size of a lump felt in the breast is that of a cherry tomato. Regular mammograms are key to early detection of breast cancer when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most treatable, she concludes. To learn more or donate to the ADMH mammography campaign, visit www.arnpriorhospital.com.

OPINION EDITORIAL

Governments can save money by spending money T

he commonly held belief is that if only governments would cut spending, tax increases could be avoided. This is true in many instances, but is by no means a universal truism. If by cutting spending we mean to cut superfluous public sector jobs, which undoubtedly exist at the federal and provincial level, then that is a good thing. It will help governments avoid tax increases. However, if we mean to cut frontline public sector workers such as hospital cleaners, nurses, and others â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including cuts to Ontario Works

employees in Renfrew County who are now on strike - that will not result in saving us from tax increases. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why. Hospital cleaners, when there are enough to do the necessary work, prevent infections. A dirty hospital increases the work for more highly paid employees such as doctors. It stands to reason that more sickness means more work for them, which means more cost to taxpayers. The same is true of nurses. If enough nurses are working it means more attention is afforded to each patient, which means earlier iden-

tification of emerging illnesses and healthier patients. Having a proper number of nurses means, for example, they have more time to periodically turn patients on their side, thereby preventing painful bedsores. While the obvious point of preventing pain and suffering is enough to sway some people, unfortunately it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t true for all. The fiscal cost must be weighed. And patients who develop bedsores tend to require more treatment, thus putting more financial strain on hospitals. The same holds for a variety of

other frontline workers in the public sector. Boiler workers in institutions, for example. They do difficult work that requires a sophisticated and specialized skill set. The fatal boiler explosion associated with Parliament Hill two years ago is an example of how serious such jobs are to maintaining proper health and safety. Again, though, the fiscal aspect is what needs to be argued with some voters. It is a good bet that fixing that boiler equipment cost the taxpayer dearly. No doubt it makes a lot of com-

mon sense to cut government spending in many areas to avoid tax increases. But it is by no means the only answer. Sometimes to save money governments have to spend money. And that is the essence of good governance, knowing how to wisely allocate spending. Trouble is, it requires long range vision and the ability to sell that vision to the voters. Instead, what dominates most western democracies, is a plea to votersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; base instincts to keep â&#x20AC;&#x153;their moneyâ&#x20AC;? at the expense of the common good.

LETTERS

Gallantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to third party critique above real answers To the editor: Imagine my utter delight upon reading last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arnprior Chronicle Guide and finding a letter from local MP Cheryl Gallant in which she takes the third party defence critic to task for his unprovoked attack on our military. John McKay (of the third party) may have thought he was being clever when he said the government knowingly lowballed the price tag of the F-35 fighter jets to the tune of $10 billion, but whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $10 billion when it comes to protecting our freedom? (answer: $10 billion). In reality, Mr. McKay of the also-ran party was actually showing a shocking disregard for our men and women in uniform. And our stalwart Ms. Gallant was having none of it. You see, she is above such petty politicking. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even above actually addressing any of the points Mr. McKay raised in his letter. And she is most certainly above offering an explanation as to why the Conservatives deceived the Canadian public about the price of these jets. In fact our Ms. Gallant is so, well, gallant that she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even stoop to fear-mongering. She is perhaps too reserved when she states

that it was the Liberals who had originally decided to make the purchase, and falls short of expressing the sheer horror any decent Canadian would feel at the thought of whatever voodoo mind control the third party exerted on Mr. Harper when they forced him to announce the purchase in 2010. There is one thing that the intrepid Ms. Gallant is not above, however, pointing out that any criticism of our governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handling of military procurement is no more than a shallow attempt to â&#x20AC;&#x153;score cheap political points.â&#x20AC;? Oh, and implying that to question the government is to somehow invalidate and disrespect all the sacrifices our Canadian soldiers make on our behalf. Did I happen to mention that Mr. McKay is from the third party? Because he is. And for some reason that is as yet unclear to me, it is crucial to repeatedly drive this point home when one is above taking political cheap shots. At any rate, shame on you, Mr. McKay of the third party. Why do you hate freedom?

Waterfront no place for dog park To the editor: Re dog park (Chronicle Guide EMC, May 17). It may be time we got a new recreation director in Arnprior. Any recreation director who suggests that prime waterfront is an ideal place for a dog park is obviously out of his element. May I suggest he take a trip into Nepean and check out the location of Bruce Pitt dog park. He may notice it is not located anywhere near congested areas and certainly not near a prime waterfront park. Can you imagine the outcry in Nepean if

their recreation director suggested taking a part of Andy Haydon Park for a dog park? You would hear the outcry all the way to Arnprior. If we must have a dog park (to satisfy the 300 signatures vs. 8,000 general population), perhaps the recreation director could purchase the already fenced-in property at Daniel and Elgin Street, or consider the fairgrounds. Do we really need to choose dogs over people on prime waterfront property? Elwood Johnston Arnprior

THIS WEEKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S QUESTION

POLL RESULTS Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your reaction to the publishing of the annual sunshine list of civil servants who make $100,000 or more?

A) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s valuable because it shows that government is out of touch and is spending far too much of taxpayers money on salaries.

B)

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s valuable because it dispels the 0% myth that civil servants are overpaid. They are paid appropriately for the important and often difficult jobs they do.

What do you think of the recent IpsosReid poll that showed the federal New Democratic Party virtually tied with the Conservatives.

A) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about time the public caught on to the lack of transparency displayed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Conservative party.

B)

The robocalls and F-35 issues finally pressed the right nerve in the political arena.

C)

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mere glitch in the polls following Thomas Mulcairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election as the new NDP leader.

D) The NDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last. The Liberals will return to form under a new leader.

OPINION

Township wants agreements to reflect the needs, views of its ratepayers

To the editor: It is with disappointment and some regret that I am writing this letter on behalf of Arnprior Council to all residents and ratepayers of the greater community of McNab-Braeside and Arnprior. You see, in our mind anyway, we are part of a greater community. While separated physically by 30 feet of asphalt, we have always grown up working and living together, side by side. But sadly, that is not how our relationship is viewed by McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council. While Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council see us sharing facilities purposely built for the greater community, such as the Nick Smith Centre and library, McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council views McNabBraeside residents strictly as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Non-Resident Usersâ&#x20AC;? of these facilities. After attending McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public meeting, we were hopeful that the proposals presented by Arnprior on the Joint Use Agreements would stand on their own merits and be adopted by McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council. However, unfortunately we are at an impasse and heading down a path that we were desperately trying to avoid. To be clear, Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal was not just picked out of thin air; rather it was based upon successful long-term relationships for similar services provided between Beckwith Township and Carleton Place and Laurentian Valley Township with Pembroke. Those agreements, based upon almost identical demographics and facilities, have for many years seen those townships contributing 2-3 times more on a per capita basis, as compared to McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current contribution to Arnprior. Arnprior is only asking that by 2016, we get to a similar level of contribution from McNabBraeside on a per capita basis to what those agreements have been contributing for many years. For the average valued home in McNabBraeside of $247,000, this equates to approximately an additional $2.29 per month in 2012 and a further $3.37 per month by 2016 on their realty tax bill. By 2016 the proposal offered by Arnprior would still see McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution to these programs and facilities being 1.5 to 2 times less than Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution, based upon the actual user numbers. Instead, after months of discussions, McNabBraeside has presented an offer that will actually see their municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s net contribution decrease. This is clearly not acceptable. Apart from the amount of the financial contributions, there is also the question of methodology on which to collect it. Arnprior has made it clear on many occasions that it would not impose non-resident user fees to McNab-Braeside residents as a way of collecting McNabBraesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution. Non-resident user fees have been tried in the past and they do not work for reasons clearly articulated: 1. Properly tracking users is problematic, given freedom-of-information rules, family members working and living in both communities and in a lot of cases, large user groups or organizations using the facilities, with residents from both communities. As an example with minor hockey, approximately 60% of the participants are from McNab-Braeside. 2. The administration costs to track and implement user fees are significant and lead to conflict between all the stakeholders. 3. Fundamental to providing recreation and library services is the need to ensure that they remain affordable to all residents, regardless of

To the editor: It is sad when two neighbouring municipalities, each committed to fair and equitable service solutions for their tax payers, can not reach middle ground. Today (Tuesday, May 22), McNab-Braeside pointed out to Arnprior that neither municipality is fully prepared to forge a new agreement, that the existing agreement terms should stand until the end of 2012, to give both municipalities time to address several issues. There is some indication that, over the past six years, some McNab-Braeside residents have been charged â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Out-of-Townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rates on programs offered through the Nick Smith Centre, in spite of regular Township payments to ensure â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In-Townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rates. There is also concern among McNab-Braeside residents owning businesses in Arnprior that their commercial tax status is not being recognized. Arnprior needs time to address these administration anomalies. At the same time, because, over the past six years, payments have been made strictly in terms of the agreements, McNab-Braeside is only now coming to grips with the numbers and needs of participants in recreational programs, particularly those in organized sports clubs. McNab-Braeside has proposed extending the existing library agreement to 2012 yearend, to give the Township an opportunity to introduce subsidy payments to library cardholders. Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed membership fee is $60/ household. To remain in line with payments made on behalf of residents using the Renfrew Library, the Township is committed to reimbursing McNab-Braeside residents $35/household. This commitment doubles the contribution to the Arnprior Library to about $72,000, as well as doubling McNab-Braeside average tax contributions from $12 to $24/household. Arnprior fears that the introduction of any form of user fee will result in a reduction in the number of users. McNab-Braeside is committed to transparency in the real cost of services and equitable access to tax dollars in keeping services affordable, believing that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we all have to live within our meansâ&#x20AC;? and that too much government subsidy â&#x20AC;&#x153;hidesâ&#x20AC;? real costs as the basis for resident decision-making. Arnprior has rejected McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation for a six-month continuance of the current agreement and plans to terminate the existing agreements effective June 30. McNab-Braeside will work to redirect bud-

financial capabilities. Implementation of user fees is counter-productive to this obligation. 4. Also, how do you justify charging similar fees to users of programs that are significantly different, both in terms of duration, as well as the costs to provide them? 5. Implementation of user fees does not necessarily recognize the economic impact these facilities and programs provide to the greater community. 6. The past implementation of user fees actually resulted in less income being derived by Arnprior to help pay for these programs and facilities. Arnprior Council is steadfast that we will not enter into an agreement based upon the implementation of user fees again. However, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s be clear, the money does have to come from somewhere if these programs and facilities are to be maintained. Unfortunately, if a mutually satisfactory deal is not reached, heavy surcharges for both individual non-resident programs and sports organizations will have to be implemented, effectively doubling their costs of participation. Arnprior Council would like to clear up a few myths or misconceptions with regard to Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal and the position held by McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council. 1. Library users have been tracked in terms of households, cardholders and circulation for many years and this information has been shared with McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council in the past, through their representatives on the Library Board and by the Town of Arnprior throughout this process. 2. Tracking users of the NSC is more challenging due to the diversity of the programs. The NSC is not always used by individuals; but rather sports organizations and sports teams of the greater community, which book large blocks of rental time, at subsidized rental rates. However, these numbers were manually tabulated for 2011 and verified by the recreation director of McNab-Braeside. While they cannot be 100% accurate, they are very close and do represent an accurate representation of the users of the various programs at the NSC. 3. McNab-Braeside Council has suggested that user fees are the new model from which municipalities should fund services like libraries and recreation. See REID, Page 10

McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell geted funds to assist families and organizations impacted. At the same time, the Township will be working aggressively to provide cost effective recreation alternatives for 2013, as well as reviewing funding requirements of sports organizations with significant McNabBraeside participation. LOOKING TO THE FUTURE

The review of the recreation and library agreements provides us with an opportunity to think about the broader picture of McNabBraesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investments in recreation and literacy. Where do we want to go as a community? How much are we willing to invest? And what are our priorities? I promise you that we have come together with a broad range of opinions. Some of us feel we have little time for recreation. For example, if you want to take a walk with me, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go walk some fence lines. Some of us are self-sufficient in our recreation; we walk, we invest in bicycles or crosscountry skis. Maybe we think that we should be spending zero dollars on recreation from the tax base. Many of us appreciate great facilities such as trails, beaches and boat launches but make our own capital investments in snowmobiles and boats. See CAMPBELL, Page 10

OPINION

Reid: Arnprior service deal proposal Campbell: M-B has duty to provide its own recreation opportunities accountable to M-B ratepayers Continued from Page 9

Can the same be said for parks, garbage pick-up, fire and police services; how about schools and health care? I certainly hope not. There is a good reason that these fundamental and basic services are used and funded over a larger tax base, so that they remain available for all to enjoy, regardless of circumstances or financial capability. 4. While it has been suggested libraries in this day and age of the Internet are becoming obsolete, I can assure you that in the case of the Arnprior Library that is certainly not true. The user numbers at the Arnprior Library have been increasing steadily over the past 10 years, both in terms of cardholders as well as circulation numbers. Today the Arnprior Library is one of the most efficiently run libraries in Ontario, as well as one of the most successful in terms of per capita use. 5. It has also been suggested that Arnprior’s proposal does not provide for accountability back to the McNab-Braeside ratepayer. We strongly disagree with this position. a. We invited McNab-Braeside Council to participate in a Master Recreation Plan for the greater community to look at facilities, programs and related efficiencies. They refused. b. We offered to formalize a Joint Recreation Committee, with proportionate representation from both councils and residents, to make recommendations to our respective councils on programs and capital expenditures and to continue to monitor and report back the actual user numbers of the NSC on an annual basis. They refused. c. In the case of the library; McNab-Braeside has had representation on the Library Board for years and they report back to McNabBraeside’s Council on a regular basis. d. In the case of the NSC, and inherent inefficiencies related to the age of the facility, significant discounts amounting to 30% within the funding formula were applied. e. Finally, the financial statements for both facilities are audited on an annual basis by KPMG Auditors. This is not an issue of accountability, as McNab-Braeside’s Council would like you to believe, but rather an agenda for them to continue to pay an unfair and unreasonable share to the programs and facilities McNab-Braeside residents have and hopefully will continue to enjoy in the years ahead. 6. McNab-Braeside’s website, and Mayor Campbell herself, indicate that McNab-Brae-

side residents pay some of the lowest realty taxes in Ontario and that the low taxes are the biggest driver of their economic development. This is absolutely true and they are partly to be congratulated for this accomplishment. However, aside from libraries and recreation, there are several other areas where McNabBraeside does not contribute equitably to services and facilities used by the greater community. This partially explains the reason why McNab-Braeside residents pay less than half the realty tax (municipal portion) of an Arnprior resident for a similarly valued home: a. The Parks & Recreation Latch Key school program that serves the greater community including the McNab-Braeside Public School; b. The Parks & Recreation Reciprocal Use Agreement with school boards that serve the greater community, including contributions to school play structures; c. The Parks & Recreation subsidized rental of the pool, ice and hall that serve the greater community, including sports organizations, service clubs and non-profit organizations; d. The library’s, subsidized use of meeting rooms and facilities that serve the greater community, including the Arnprior, McNabBraeside Archives, outreach and non-profit organizations; e. Sewer and Water Rate subsidies that serve and provide jobs to the greater community, including industry, schools, hospitals and other institutions; f. Roads, sidewalks and services necessary to serve facilities of the greater community that pay little or no realty tax to the municipality, including schools, hospitals and other institutions; g. Policing costs that serve the greater community, including schools, school safety zones, hospitals, community groups and festivals that are disproportionately paid for by the small urban communities; h. Fire Department costs that serve the greater community, including first response and water rescue (temporarily suspended) vehicles, equipment, training and wages that are disproportionately paid for by the small urban communities; i. County roads and bridges that are disproportionately paid for by the small urban communities. See REID, Page 11

Continued from Page 9

Alternatively, some think that recreation is so important to our health and well-being that all forms of activity should be subsidized from the tax base. Historically, McNab-Braeside has focused on providing facilities but leaving the community to organize the programs utilizing those facilities. However, some of us really look forward to the social aspects of recreation and need organized programs to help get us out and integrated with the rest of the community, particularly when we might be newcomers to the Township. Some would like greater investment in supervised recreation programs for our children where they can learn new skills. Almost seven years ago, the Township of McNab-Braeside entered into agreements with both the Towns of Arnprior and Renfrew that would allow McNab-Braeside residents to register for their recreation programs at the same rates as resident taxpayers. In Arnprior, most specifically those offered through the Nick Smith Centre. That agreement was based on McNab-Braeside contributing to covering the deficit experienced in operation of the Nick Smith Centre. By deficit, I mean that portion of the operating cost that is not met by program user fees and must be paid from the tax base. I must stress, here, that every municipality runs a deficit on its recreation program. While not legislated as an essential municipal service, the Province of Ontario through the Municipal Act and various programs and policies has positioned recreation as a key component of long term municipal sustainability. In other words, if McNab-Braeside wants to remain an independent rural municipality, we can’t ‘not’ spend money on recreation. The question remains how much do we want to invest, in which facilities, and what programs do we want to invest that are most effective in fostering our health, lifestyle, economic development and general enjoyment of our communities? Currently, McNab-Braeside enjoys 18 recreation facilities, more than any other municipality in Renfrew County. We spend approximately $200K/year on maintenance and operations at these facilities. We recover about 25% in rent and user fees leaving us with a 75% or a $150K deficit. Above and beyond subsidizing our own rec-

reation facilities, each year the Township of McNab-Braeside has subsidized the Town of Arnprior an average of $100,000/year. That means that approximately a third of our recreation budget and 40% of our deficit tax dollars are going to pay for recreation services from the Town of Arnprior. Yet that third of our budget and 40% of our deficit is going to subsidize only 13% of our population. I have a problem with that. I know that we could lower our overall deficit if we had more programs running at our various McNab-Braeside facilities, but because we figure $300,000, approximately $100/household, is a lot of money to spend on recreation, we tend to be cautious about increased spending. McNab-Braeside has been limping along with a part-time recreation director whose allocated hours are barely enough to supervise the maintenance of our facilities, let alone offer any programs. So we end up with beaches but no life guards or swimming lessons, boat launches but no kayak lessons or rentals, ice rinks but no house league competitions. We think nothing of spending a $100K on services from Arnprior but never get around to spending the $3K that it would take to put a dock in at Burnstown so people can tie their boat up while they are parking their trailer and car. I have a problem with that. DIFFERENT ATTITUDES

So here we are with two very different municipalities side-by-side with roughly the same population but with very different attitudes toward recreation and spending in general. Arnprior (and Renfrew) have fewer recreation facilities but far more extensive programs. For example, Arnprior has at least three dedicated recreation staff compared to 12-20 hours that McNab-Braeside has historically allocated for a part-time recreation director. McNab-Braeside’s spending on our annual recreation deficit or subsidy from the tax base is $22/capita ($150K/7,500); Arnprior’s for the Nick Smith Centre alone is $115/capita. If I use Arnprior’s estimate of 953 McNabBraeside users, the ‘out-of-town’ surcharge to McNab-Braeside during 2011 was $117.08, more than per-person allocation from the Arnprior tax base.

OPINION

Campbell: a difference Reid: Townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s library, pool, rinks attract development in culture, spending habits Continued from Page 10

Continued from Page 10

So sadly, rather than appreciating the benefit that Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s library and recreational facilities provide to the greater community and agreeing that the proposal presented by Arnprior for the shared use of those facilities as being fair and reasonable, McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council presents an offer that is very unfair to their Arnprior neighbors and an offer that will actually see their net contribution decrease. These comments are in no way meant to be critical of either the residents or council of McNab-Braeside; but rather to bring clarity and understanding of Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position. Judging from the comments at the recent public meeting, McNab-Braeside residents want and fully expect to pay

their fair share of the programs and services they enjoy. While I personally very much appreciate the efforts of the current McNabBraeside Council and the difficult decisions they have to make, I strongly feel, both as a McNab-Braeside resident and as the Mayor of Arnprior, the wrong decision was made on this issue. Arnprior Council truly hopes that they will reconsider their position, so that we can avoid the inevitable disruptions to the programs and services provided by both the library and Nick Smith Centre to our greater community.

So our councils and communities have had different perceptions on how much we should spend on recreation. We also have had very different views of the role of tax dollars versus personal investment. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;subsidyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approach considered in addressing purchase of both library and recreation services is a conscious effort to limit impact to the McNab-Braeside tax rate. While paying nothing from the tax base, requiring residents wishing to purchase recreation services from other communities to pay the full â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;out-of-townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; surcharge is seriously being considered by council, we also sympathize with the shock effect that this would have, particularly on young families. Council has also considered following Horton and Greater Madawaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy of subsidizing children, only, and leaving adult to pay their own non-resident surcharge. At the same time we acknowledge that swimming is an important health therapy for seniors in our community and many of our seniors are on restricted incomes. Partial payment also reintroduces to the conscious decision on the part of the purchaser, an assessment of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;valueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; received. Value and choice leads to better alignment of services and pricing to a competitive recreation market by providers. The subsidy option and re-imbursement to McNab-Braeside residents also fosters contact with the township office assisting staff and council in better understanding the recreation needs of our community. McNab-Braesiders should be aware that as part of the negotiation with the Town of Arnprior, Arnprior tabled a proposal for a joint Recreation Master Plan between the two municipalities. I want to be clear that Council is not considering Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal. The gulf between our cultures, spending habits and organizations is viewed by council as being too great to bridge. At the same time residents of McNab-Braeside should be assured that the entire Council of McNab-Braeside is firmly committed in its belief in the health and social benefits of recreation throughout the community. I also see investment in recreation as an important element in our economic growth, attracting new residents, businesses, and job opportunities to the Township. There is no question of reducing our investment in recreation, only in the relative priority of investing in our own facilities and programs vs. sensible procurement from other communities.

This amounts to 100s of thousands of dollars on an annual basis, Arnprior ratepayers are contributing to facilities and services that the entire greater community use and enjoy. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consider a couple of other points! Would McNab-Braeside be enjoying the robust development they have enjoyed over the past decade, if facilities such as the library and NSC were not at their doorstep to use at a reasonable cost? Would large industry and commercial establishments locate in Arnprior, providing good jobs to the greater community, if there were no libraries or recreational facilities. To us the answer is pretty obvious, but somehow not recognized by McNab-Braesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council.

The Township of McNab-Braeside does see access to education and research services as well as literary sources as essential to our community. We recognize that due to social and technology changes, our residents have a much broader range of choice through which to source these materials and services. We recognize that the role of libraries is in transition and evolving to include more â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;community centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; content. This raises the question as to what is the best solution for McNab-Braeside in terms of community activity as well as the broad range of services and sources available. Would our residents be better served by their own community centre with Internet cafes, e-readers and wii-boxes? Should we offer reading programs within our hamlets where our seniors reside and within walking distance of our childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homes? Is the rising cost of fuel going to influence our behavior in how often we utilize services in other communities? It is clear that while we are considering the future, today, the libraries of Arnprior and Renfrew provide the best sources of these services. The Township of McNab-Braeside definitely wants to forge an agreement with both libraries.

LETTERS

Rotarian pair deserve praise for recreating Arnprior-opoly To the Editor: Re. the Town of Arnprior 150th Celebration June 8-10. As a member of the committee for the above-noted event, I wish to extend a very special thank you to Rev Leo Hughes and Mr. Sam McCartney for their special project of recreating the Town of Arnprior Board Game that was originally released in 1982 by the Rotary Club of Arnprior. As I had been living in Toronto for a number of years when this game was first released by the Rotary Club, I was very fortunate to receive a copy of this original edition (1982) from my brother Walter for Christmas 1982. I have treasured it all these many years and was always very proud and pleased to play it with my children and grandchildren and

guests while at our Haliburton cottage. There was always one rule ... the game, including all of its parts was to be put back in the box and onto the book shelf to be sure no pieces were misplaced and it was ready for the next time (the game is similar to Monopoly). Last August, upon learning of the Town’s 150th, I volunteered to serve on the committee and very soon thought what a treat it would be to have this game updated and available for sale for residents and visitors at Christmas 2011 and so on. I presented the idea to the committee in August 2011 and had contacted two of the major Rotarians, Rev Leo Hughes and Mr. Sam McCartney. They were involved back in 1982. I suggested that perhaps if I gave them my original

copy of this game would they take on the task of having the board game updated and printed and available for purchase for not only the townspeople of Arnprior, but any visitors? Both of these gentlemen immediately agreed to take this project on.. The original game was produced in the U.S. However, in keeping with ensuring we get permission to recreate it locally, they engaged the local firm of Brittle Printing to achieve the objective. It is understood that this was not a task without challenges. Regardless Rev. Hughes and Mr. McCartney moved forward without hesitation. To cover the printing costs, etc., the participating businesses were requested to make a donation. It took hours to update the board game with

Speak up against new trades fee

Royal Canadian army cadets appreciate Tag Day support To the Editor: The 17 Cadets, Staff and, Support Committee of 2360 Royal Canadian Army Cadets wish to thank the community, local businesses and Branch 174 Arnprior Legion for their support on ‘Tag Day’ (April 28). The Corps would especially like to thank the eight local businesses for allowing the cadets to fundraise at their store fronts. The Royal Canadian Army Cadets is a federally-sponsored program for young Canadians ages 12 to 18 that develops in youth attributes of leadership, good citizenship, and physical fitness, while stimulating interest in the history and activities of the Canadian Army.

the current businesses and points of reference. They had to approach the Council to hopefully have the Town Crest be part of this reproduction as it was originally. Apparently that was an issue. Both of these gentlemen took their commitment very seriously and as of late, I understand they only have a couple of games left. I have reserved one for posterity. Once again I wish to commend Rev Hughes and Sam McCartney on their tedious work and success, which provides a very special opportunity for our community on Arnprior’s 150th Anniversary. Good work gentlemen!

To the Editor: I am writing to inform the tradespeople that the newly formed College of Trades is undergoing a consultation of fees. Another fee being added, in my opinion, is another money grab. The College of Trades is considering implementing a fee of $50 per apprentice and $200 per journeyman. If you own a contracting business, the fees paid to the College of Trades may be as high as $600 per year.

The contractor will not have any option but to increase his invoice to the customer to assist in paying these added fees because of another increase in overhead. For further information, please check the website of the College of Trades. Please post your comments and concerns on this website. The deadline is June 3. Let us not be silent. Let’s speak up.

NATURE

The 24-hour birdathons are really for the birds EMC lifestyle – On May 20 I participated in the Prince Edward County Spring Bird Count, an annual event that raises money for the bird observatory situated in the southeast corner of the county. Teams compete in the birdathon by finding as many species of birds as they can within a 24-hour period, raising money through sponsorships. My team, the Great Grays, consisted of myself and long-time friend and seasoned birder Doug McRae. We started at midnight near a marsh in the northwest corner of the county. While teams are not required to start at midnight – some go from 10 a.m. one day to 10 a.m. the next – I prefer to do the event in one calendar day.

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way The number of hours spent birding in that period is also optional, but I generally go the full 24. Why start when you cannot see birds?

Well, birds that are only heard can also be counted, and owls and many marsh birds are audibly active at night. Thus, by dawn our list included Virginia Rail, Least Bittern, Eastern Screech-Owl, and Eastern Whip-poor-will. It always amazes me how quickly five hours of darkness passes by. By daybreak we were on the tip of Long Point where we spotted a Little Gull (a rarity) flying with Bonaparte’s Gulls. After seeing a Red-necked Grebe (another good find), we began searching for land birds. To our disappointment, a major fallout (the arrival of a large number of migrating birds) had not occurred overnight, and songbirds were scarce. After a lot of effort, our list included many ‘ones’ – i.e., one Indigo

Bunting, one Northern Parula– and when we left the Point mid-morning, our tally was lower than expected. We slowly worked our way across to the southwest corner of the county. To our delight a Snow Goose (another rarity) was spotted in a small group of Canada Geese beside a pond. At Point Petre, a single Brant (a small species of goose) was found resting on a limestone ledge. The list grew slowly and steadily as field birds such as Upland Sandpiper and Clay-coloured Sparrow were encountered. Luck plays no small role in birding competitions. At 7 p.m. we stopped at Picton to grab a coffee. As we left the parking lot, our only Chimney Swifts flew over. North of Picton we added a Great Egret and a Northern Mockingbird to our list.

100 years of Middlebranch Hunt Camp Stuart Briscoe Secretary/Treasurer Middlebranch Hunt Camp

In March of 1911, three brothers, Peter, Charlie and J.M. Briscoe, along with two neighbours, Xavier Plaunt and John Atkinson, bought a ‘Keep Over’ log cabin from the McLachlin Lumber Company of Arnprior. The Great Pine forest of the Madawaska Highlands had been cut off, the cabin no longer required, the promise of good hunting lay ahead. The first trip was from Northcote via Calabogie. Two horses and a buggy, two

days later they arrived to hunt whitetails. Subsequent years they took the train on the K&P Railroad to Flower Station, livery was arranged to the camp by Jordy Wales, the hunters and hounds walked. Only their wooden box of supplies went by transport. If you couldn’t come for two weeks you most likely had to stay home. Even today it is an adventure; boat or four-wheeler provide the only access to the lakeside cabin. We celebrate 100 years of hunting and fellowship at our camp. Records of our hunts go back to 1925.

The fifth generation of Briscoes are included in the membership. We still run hounds, we enjoy good food and fellowship. And like 100 years ago, transition is taking place, and the forest is being logged off again. Modern machinery follow the trails that the loggers used with their horses 100 years ago. Campers on the lake think it is virgin forest (whatever that was). We have pictures dating back to when there were no trees. Enjoy our heritage.

Our final bird was yet another ‘one’; A Common Nighthawk belting out its distinctive buzzy “peent” flew high overhead as the sun began to set. Later, we unsuccessfully searched for more marsh birds, and we ended our day with 141 species, a total not bad considering there had been no fallout of birds, and daytime temperatures had soared into the high 20s. Next week we learn how our team placed in the competition. Regardless of how the Great Grays did, the bird observatory is the big winner. A big thanks to all those who sponsored me.

Brownies enjoy weekend at Camp Woolsey

From back Claire Yetman, Bella Hamilton, Sophie McCorkell, Payton Kubusheskie and Abigael Visinski take a second to pose for the camera.

EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On the May 11-13 weekend, the 4th Arnprior Brownies set out for a two-night camp at Camp Woolsey, a Girl Guide Camp in Crown Point. The weekend was packed with crafts, outdoor fun and adventures. The girls made crafts, which included a Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day item, and a scrapbook of their year in Guiding. The girls roasted marshmallows over the ďŹ re and they also ate sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mores and banana boats. The blackďŹ&#x201A;ies and mosquitos were treacherous, but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop the singing, smiling and happy campers from having a blast at the Spring Camp. Guiding in Arnprior is now ďŹ nished for the season and will start back up in September. Returning girls can register for next year online now and new girls can join starting June 1 at http://www.girlguides. ca/.

Emily and Ainsley Phillips, grade 2 and 3 students, singing a gentle lullaby called ‘Safe and Sound’ during the Walter Zadow open house talent show May 15. As well as the talent show, there were environmental games, OPP radar, fire truck, cake walk, bake sale, barbecue, sponge toss (at your favourite staff member), white elephant sale and raffles (baskets prepared by different classrooms).

Elaine Kuehl’s daughter Erin performed an impressive version of ‘The Kangaroo’ before a packed house in the school gymnasium. Mabel Hinchley chows down on a burger while taking in all the activity at her school’s open house on May 15.

Nicole and Lyndsay Gillan, and Kathleen and Lisa McCombe wowed the crowd with their well-choreographed dance routine at Walter Zadow.

Drivers nabbed, charged with drunk driving in Burnstown area EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Renfrew OPP officers arrested and charged three people with impaired driving over the Victoria Day long weekend, including two in the Burnstown area. On Friday, May 18 shortly before midnight, the OPP was notified of a vehicle stopped on Highway 17 near the Madawaska River Bridge in a dangerous location. Upon arrival, officers arrested an intoxicated man in the vehicle for impaired care or control of a motor vehicle. Following breath tests at the detachment, the 27-year-old Metcalfe man was charged with impaired care of control and over 80 mgs care

or control of a motor vehicle. He will appear in court in Renfrew July 11. On Saturday, May 19 shortly after midnight, OPP Const. Kerlous Tawdrous was conducting RIDE spot checks in Burnstown when he stopped a driver who appeared to have been drinking. After failing a roadside alcohol screening test, the male driver was arrested. Following breath tests at the detachment, a 46-year-old Greater Madawaska man was charged with impaired driving and driving over 80 mgs. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew June 27.

DOMESTIC DISPUTES

Last week officers from the Renfrew OPP investigated six domestic disputes. Police have issued one ticket under the Trespass to Property Act to one man for failing to leave a premise when directed to do so. LONG WEEKEND FATALS

As Canada Road Safety Week activities wrapped up, the OPP report seven people were killed in seven separate collisions during the

holiday weekend on OPP-patrolled roads and highways. The OPP laid about 8,000 charges during the Victoria Day weekend period. Of those, 6,358 were speeding, 244 were distracted driving, 108 were impaired driving and 698 for seat belt infractions. Also during the long weekend, one person drowned in north eastern Ontario and another person is missing and presumed to have drowned in Lake Erie. OPP remind everyone of the importance of using personal floatation devices when on the water.

CHEVROLET CADILLAC BUICK GMC

Galetta lawn bowls’ dedicated and hard-working greenskeeper, David Jeffries, tries out the club’s new aerator, which was purchased this winter by the Galetta Community Association. Jeffries has been maintaining Galetta’s bowls green for over 15 years. Greenskeeping is the most important job in a bowls club because when the green is running well all the bowlers (members and visitors) appreciate how well their bowls roll down the surface of the green. A well maintained green - like Galetta’s - contributes immensely to the enjoyment of the sport of bowls. Just to name just a few of the jobs involved in maintaining a green for the six-month bowls season: he repairs the winter burn holes in the grass, aerates, dethatches the green with a verticutter, kills off ants and weeds, outwits the birds that like to dig holes in the green, fertilizes, arranges for the bi-weekly grass cutting and constantly keeps his eye out for ways to make the green run better.

For good health, children need at least 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity each day. However, the according to the Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth (2011), only 9 per cent of boys and 4 per cent of girls meet the new Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines. This has significant implications for chronic disease indicators, and there is growing concern that childhood inactivity is leading to increased obesity and obesity-related illness. The Renfrew County and District Health Unit is promoting materials to elementary schools to encourage teachers, principals, and parents to work together to ensure children are getting the activity they need to grow up healthy.

JOHN XXIII rev their engines for visiting race car Photo by Derek Dunn

Hunter Coady in Shauna Rampton’s Grade 1 class is dancing to the tunes blaring from a race car at John XXIII last week. The school was adopted by Metro grocery store to host the Fuel For Kids fundraiser. The Schneiders Nascar Race Team with driver Dave Connelly gave three 15-minute presentations on safety elements and other features of the Dodge Challenger that tops out at a speed of 290 kilometres per hour. He then revved the engine for the students. That evening the team was at Metro for a barbecue fundraiser that saw all profits going to the school. Connelly, who lives in White Lake, has raised $140,000 over a sixyear span for Ontario schools. His season at the Nascar Canadian Tire series, the highest series in Canada, starts next week.

Muskie Tournament to hit waters June 2 Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC events - An upcoming muskie tournament promises a donation for the dialysis clinic. The Ottawa Valley Muskie Club (OVMC) holds its annual season opener tournament on Saturday, June 2. Registration is the Friday before, 5 to 7 p.m. at Towey’s Bait and Tackle on Madawaska Street, or Antrim Truck Stop between 6 and 7 a.m. on the day of the tournament. Cost is $25 per person. The winner will have a photo of the largest lunker to the organizers between 4 and 5 p.m. They will split half the entry with the OVMC, with the other half going to the clinic. A founding member of OVMC,

Bill Craig, said the Renfrew dialysis clinic will benefit greatly from the money, which could total last year’s $475. “The dialysis unit is the lowest on the totem pole when it comes to donations,” Craig said. “This will help them out a little bit.” DONOR CAMPAIGN

The donation will prove personal to Craig, who is on a waiting list for a new kidney. He is a regular patient of the clinic. He was featured recently in a Chronicle-Guide EMC story urging people to go online to sign their donor cards. “Tons of people said they did it after seeing the story,” he said.

Five spots still open for Breast Ball fundraiser EMC sports – You could still be part of the ‘sea of pink’. As of Tuesday noon, there were still five spots open for the second annual Breast Ball Golf Tournament in support of Arnprior District Memorial Hospital’s Partners in Caring Foundation. The annual fundraiser, presented by the Arnprior Co-operators office (Suzanne How and Associates), will be held Friday, June 1 starting at noon at the Arnprior Golf Club. The entry fee includes 18 holes of golf, a cart, dinner, a great deal of laughter and a lot of pink. There will be prizes for the best dressed pink team as well as draws, games and prizes, including the possibility one golfer could win a 2012 Chevy Sonic from Reid Brothers. “Do you know that one in nine women is expected to develop breast cancer during their lifetime and one in 29 will die of it?, ask organizers in promoting the tournament. “The Partners in Caring Foundation is working towards raising funds to purchase a Digital Mammography Unit to assist in early diagnosis. Early detection is Prevention. Let’s do our part to help.” To sign up, call 613-6233789. Non-golfers can support the effort by signing up for dinner only (5 p.m.).

The Arnprior District High School senior girls rugby team was tested by a provincially ranked squad from Quinte in a closely contested game last Thursday at Dochart Park. The team is preparing for the Eastern Ontario championships today (Thursday) in Kingston. Coach Glenn Wallace reports the Redmen generated a lot of offensive pressure, but small errors in execution at critical times hurt them. ADHS held an 8-5 lead late in the second half when a series of defensive miscues allowed Quinte to score a try for the 12-8 win. Above, Arnprior players, from left are Chanelle Fortin, Jess Couture and Ashlynn Sullivan. Left, Sandra Hudson in full stride with the ball.

EMC sports – The Arnprior District High School Redmen senior girls soccer team goes into playoffs today (Thursday) on a roll, especially Sam Caesar. Caesar scored five goals in three games as ADHS won two and tied one in a day of soccer at Pembroke’s Riverside Park May 15 to finish fourth in the tight Upper Ottawa Valley league race. Meanwhile, the senior boys had a win and a tie to clinch first place in their division. The girls started the day with a 4-1 win over General Panet, as Sarah Dick scored twice and Lauren Graham and Caesar notched singles. ADHS then played Ecole Jeanne Lajoie to a scoreless draw. However, the

girls made up for it with a 6-0 thrashing of Bishop Smith in the final game, as Caesar scored four times. Dick and Keisha Clark tallied the other Redmen goals. The win gave ADHS a 3-1-3 record and a match with 3-2-2 Fellowes in the first game of the playoffs. A win would put them in a semi-final game, likely against first-place RCI, which finished 4-1-2. Arnprior’s only loss in regular play came to second-place St. Joseph’s, which is undefeated so far, but has four ties (30-4). In boys play, ADHS, coming off a 10 first-place showdown win over St. Joseph’s, thanks to a Will Twardek goal, defeated Bishop Smith 3-1 and tied Mackenzie 2-2 in Pembroke.

Redmen romp in Renfrew County track meet Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

The Renfrew Collegiate Institute Raiders have won the Renfrew County high school track and field title 14 of the last 17 years. But it looks as if the present king is going to stay in charge. The Arnprior District High School Redmen doubled RCI’s points total in the 2011 county meet, then did the same last Wednesday (May 16) to capture their third straight title. With 122 athletes competing, the host Redmen had a runaway first-place total of 881 points. The General Panet Panthers, whose Ty Lebannister produced a dramatic comefrom-behind victory in the 4 x 400-metre relay to end the meet, placed second with 414 points. RCI was third with 388 and Fellowes High School of Pembroke placed fourth with 346. “It’s really dedicated athletes and the coaching program that has made us successful,” said teacher-coach Kelly Winter of ADHS. “It’s nice to have a little bit of breathing room,” she added in reference to the wide victory margin. The many athletes contributing to ADHS’s win included Will Ruddy, Nathan Toman and Jacob Plunkett, respective winners of the individual midget, junior and senior boys overall titles. Ruddy won the 100 hurdles (15.6), 300 hurdles (45.9) and 200 metres (25.5). Toman’s three individual victories came in the 100 hurdles (meet record of 14.2 seconds), 300 hurdles (meet record 41.1) and 200 (24.2) while helping the Redmen to a 1-2-3 finish in the high hurdles. Plunkett led the 400-metre (58.8), 200(22.9) and 110-metre hurdles (13.7), in which he set one of TM

Jacob Plunkett is out of sorts at the final hurdle, but still beat Redmen teammate Justin Cameron to the finish.

Furthermore, he likes how javelin results can turn on a dime. “It’s the intensity I like, knowing your opponent can beat you with just one throw.” Other strong RCI showings included Dane Brumm in the midget discus (38.91) and javelin (37.46, and silver-medal showings by senior throwers Colleen Fleury (discus, 33.45 metres) and Jamie Brown of the Arnprior Redmen finished fourth in Tyler Wilson (shot put, the senior women’s shot put. 11.88).

He won the senior long jump in 5.77 metres, compared to 5.53 for silver javelin to win by nearly four metres. Deslaurier’s triple victory came in the medallist Collin Lawson of Fellowes. 200 (28.4), 400 (64.9) and 300 hurdles Vice also triple jumped 11.74 metres, leaving Andrew Heaslip of RCI second in (51.1). Josh Thero also had a triple win. For 11.28 and Ryan Dale of Opeongo High the first time, he outdistanced his regular School third in 10.91.

Teammate Connor Moss

Another Opeongo winner was Judline Wren, who won the junior girls 100 and 200 in 13.6 and 28.5. ADHS was, as usual, a strong performer in the relays, including runaway wins in both senior 4 x 100 and the senior girls’ 4 x 400. The Redmen tried to steal the senior boys’ 4 x 400 title with two Grade 9 and two Grade 12 students. Grade 9 Brody Flegal trailed RCI’s Sam Agnew by at least 15 metres at the final handoff, but Flegal figured his biggest competition might be charging from behind - General Panet anchor Ty Lebannister who won the senior 400 in 52.9. He was right. Flegal closed most of the gap on Agnew, while Lebannister took a late lead for the triumphant Panthers. RCI emerged second, ADHS third. The first two relays and top-four individual finishers advanced to this week’s EOSSAA meet. The county meet’s individual agegroup titles went to these athletes: • Midget. Girls: Kathryn David, Opeongo High School. Boys: Tie for Max Serviss, General Panet and Will Ruddy, ADHS. • Junior. Girls: Tie for Saralyn Deslaurier and Amanda Tubman of RCI, and Toe Greenfield, Mackenzie. Boys: Tie for Nathan Toman, ADHS and Josh Thero, RCI. • Senior. Girls: Anna Austin, General Panet.

the day’s three meet records. The former mark was 15.6. The meet’s other record fell to Fellowes junior high jumper Tim Gorr. He cleared 1.72 metres to beat the old mark by two centimetres. Another Redman showing leadership was Justin Cameron, despite falling after a hurdles race in Brockville two weeks ago and dislocating his left elbow. At Wednesday’s county meet, he ran from a standing start and with a bandaged cast on his left arm. He skipped high jump, in which he qualified for the all-Ontarios (OFSAA) two years ago. But he entered the 400-metre hurdles, in which he took second in 59.5 seconds. On the girls’ side, there was no shortage of ADHS wins, including a 1-2-3 finish for Tasha Zoryk (14.1), Melissa Kargus and Emma Cavanagh in the 80-metre junior hurdles; Michelle Wheeler’s senior 400-metre win (62.3); and junior and senior pole vault wins for Jamie Burnett (2.20 metres) and Janessa Russett (1.75). RCI, which outshone the Redmen for years, has slipped in the ranks following a big drop in participation in the last three years. In previous years, track coach Roger Poirier says the Raiders often fielded teams of 70 or more students, but this year’s total was less than 40. Nevertheless, RCI had its share of strong performers in the last week’s meet. Among them were Saralyn Deslaurier and Amanda Tubman of RCI. They shared the individual junior girls’ overall title with Toe Greenfield of Mackenzie High School with each three winning three events. Tubman, who won discus and shot put last year, added

Mahusky, MacAulay share Larry Reynolds Award Steve Newman Steve.newman@meetroland.com

A star middle-distance runner while attending high school in Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay, Larry Reynolds went on to become a teacher. He was only 28 when he died in a vehicular accident in 1980, but he is remembered with the help of the Larry Reynolds Award. The prestigious honour is awarded each year at the Renfrew County high school track and ďŹ eld championships. The two recipients at the May 16 meet were Jessica Mahusky of St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic High School and Andrew MacAulay of Arnprior District High School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The award is given to the athlete or athletes who have overcome tremendous hardship, dedicated their heart and soul to the team, helped other people on the team, and generally show leadership, even though things are not always going their way,â&#x20AC;? said Roger Poirier, the meet ofďŹ cial who announced the winnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; names. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They get past that and better than that, and make the team a better team.â&#x20AC;?

MacAulay, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regarded as a hardworking individual on and off the track and ďŹ eld scene, produced strong performances in the county meet. The senior boy anchored his 4 x 100relay team to victory. He also placed second in the 200 (23.6), second in the 110 hurdles (14.8) and third in the 400 hurdles (67.8). ADHS sprint and hurdles coach Kelly Winter said MacAulay, 18, is a phenomenal athlete who leads by example. He works two part-time jobs outside school and leads track warm-ups every day. Mahusky qualiďŹ ed for the EOSSAA meet with a fourth-place showing in the senior girls 3,000 metres after struggling for seven years with severe anorexia. She found solutions to her life-threatening disease through treatment in the United States. Once weighing a mere 52 pounds as a 16-year-old, the Renfrew resident is now at a healthy weight, and glad to be running and enjoying life a whole lot more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big deal. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in recovery over a year,â&#x20AC;? said the beaming Mahus-

ky, 19, after her 3,000-run qualiďŹ ed her for this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s EOSSAA meet in Belleville, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why my coaches and friends and family are so proud,â&#x20AC;? said Mahusky, whose dad looked on from the sidelines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve suffered from anorexia for years, but this is my ďŹ rst year back in high school (running).â&#x20AC;? Reynoldsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Maureen Braceland, who lives in Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay, was pleased to hear who this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Larry Reynolds Award winners were. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be happy with that because he always kind of cheered for the underdog,â&#x20AC;? she said of her brother, who did his university degrees at York University and trained with the Toronto Olympic Club before returning to teach in Renfrew County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was passionate and intense about his running (and an avid camper), but he was a party-goer and a socialite,â&#x20AC;? she added. He was a teacher at St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic (Elementary) School in Deep River when he died.

ON THE RUN Participating in the junior 100 is Tasha Zoryk and Emma Cavanagh. They did well in this race, but really excelled in the 80metre junior girls hurdles with Tasha posting a winning time of 14.1. Emma finished third with ADHS teammate Melissa Kargus second to give Arnprior a 1-2-3 sweep. Photo by Steve Newman Photo by Steve Newman

The 2012 recipients of the Larry Reynolds Award are Jessica Mahusky of St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic High School and Andrew MacAulay of Arnprior District High School.

SECOND SECTION

Local group knitting up a storm for charity John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A close-knit group of Arnprior area women is spreading happiness thanks to an abundance of talent and generosity. The Helping Hands project was started just over a year ago when a small group began to meet every second Monday from noon to 2 p.m. in the basement of the St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church in Arnprior. The idea was to socialize as they knitted and crocheted items to be donated to hospitals, seniors homes and others who need them, explained Doris Boese, one of the founders. The drop-in numbers have grown and include members from several denominations. They bring a box lunch and knit up a storm as they enjoy each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company. The participants take great pride in the items crafted to be worn by everyone from cancer and palliative care patients to Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) kids and premature babies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some (recipients) it gives them dignity, for others itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comfort,â&#x20AC;? said Boese. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We certainly enjoy doing it.â&#x20AC;? The Helping Hands group has created an incredible number of items since March 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind-boggling how much has been made so far,â&#x20AC;? said Boese. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There really are some talented people involved,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen them make beautiful Afghans out of nothing.â&#x20AC;? Patients and residents from a number of institutions have been the beneficiaries of the generosity. They include: Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grove Nursing Home â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 33 catheter bag covers, 12 bed pan covers, 10 Afghans, 4 shawls, 2 pillow covers, 2 plaid flannel lap warmers and 1 filled pillow. CHEO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 36 hockey hats, 24 pairs of slippers, 19 Afghans, 14 pairs of socks, 11 blankets, 4 pillow cases, 2 preemie hats and one preemie sweater. Arnprior Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s palliative care unit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 26 pairs of socks, 9 bed jackets, 7 lap warmers, 1 shawl and 1 pillow. Renfrew Hospice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 11 Afghans, 2 lap warmers, 2 catheter covers and 1 pillow. Queensway-Carleton Hospital â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 76 baby hats and 22 preemie hats. Individuals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 3 Afghans, 3 pairs of socks and 2 bed jackets. The group will make and donate items for any group or individual that needs help, said Boese. While the knitters provide their own materials, donations of wool are gratefully accepted, she said. The group welcomes new members. Anyone interested in learning more should call Boese at 613-622-5960.

Strong community support for Arnprior food bank Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC News – Arnprior and area residents, keep up the good work. That’s the message from the Arnprior and District Food Bank board of directors following a very successful year for the organization. “Our food bank is an organization to be truly proud of,” said president Kathy Tonkin at the April 26 annual general meeting. “We’re very fortunate to have the support we have.” Among the year’s accomplishments is a more-thanbalanced budget. “We finished our year with the biggest financial surplus since the food bank’s inception in 1994,” said Tonkin. The last thing the board wants, however, is for people to stop giving. The food bank and its clients require continual support, she said. About 200 clients are served each month at the food bank, located in the basement of St. John Chrysostom Church in Arnprior. About 17 volunteers work tirelessly to keep the shelves stocked and clients served. “It’s been an extremely busy and productive year for the board of directors,” said Tonkin. Among the changes were added dates. “We had two additional dates over the summer and they were very successful,” she said.

Bob Legault resigned from the board and Tonkin and others thanked him for his work over the years. In terms of equipment, two fridges and a vacuum cleaner were added to the food bank’s arsenal over the past year. In the recent past, donations have gone down and the Rumbly Tummy program could use a boost in donations. Helen Schefter reported the snowsuit program was once again successful, with 135 clients being served in the 201112 season. The number has slowly been decreasing, she reported. There were 146 clients outfitted in 2010-11 and 161 in 2009-10. 2011 HIGHLIGHTS

• A volunteer application form was implemented, including a police check for new volunteers. All current volunteers supplied their contact information and acknowledgement of client confidentiality. • Dozens of food drives and fundraising events were held by various community groups, schools, churches, businesses and private initiatives. This support contributed immensely to the supply of food available to distribute. • To assist co-ordinators, a volunteer team leader position was established who schedules staff, manages food inventory, food dating and stock rotation. • The food bank completed

The Arnprior and District Food Bank board of directors, including chair Kathy Tonkin, right, and treasurer David Fridgen, discusses the year that was at the annual general meeting held recently. its first Food Banks Canada Hunger Count Survey. Receipt of the report recognized the organization as a viable resource in the national and provincial food bank registry and provides it with a wealth of information, contacts and support.

• Attendance at the Ottawa Valley Food Banks meetings was begun. Arnprior will be hosting this meeting in April 2013. • Liability Insurance was purchased for people involved in operating the food bank, a necessary requirement in

today’s environment. • The board has undertaken to revise and update the mission statement and constitution to reflect today’s philosophy and operating standards. • Officials completed and approved a primary volunteer job description template.

• The food bank initiated information sharing practices between volunteers and the board of directors. An informative and successful staff meeting was held and will become a regular event for all the volunteers at the food bank.

Need for awareness grows as food allergies on the rise threatening to people of all ages, particularly children. It is estimated, based on clinically documented cases, that about 1.8 million Canadians may be affected by food allergies. Some studies indicate that these numbers are increasing, especially among children.

Kevin Turcotte presents diagnostic imaging staff members Arnita Kauffeldt and Sharon Murphy with a cheque for $290. The funds were raised during a Golf Day in memory of Jerry Duda. This yearly event has been running for more than 25 years and this year the funds were allocated to the Digital Mammography Campaign.

EMC news – Want an easy way to help the environment and raise money for a fabulous cause? Join the United Food & Commercial Workers and The Beer Store to help find a cure for leukemia, the number one disease killer of children in Canada. On the May 26 and 27 weekend, donate your empty beer, wine and spirit containers at any Beer Store across Ontario. All of your deposit refund will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada. Over the last six years, the Returns For Leukemia bottle drive has raised an astounding $4.5 million for research into blood cancers and support for patients and their families. It is believed to be the biggest bottle drive in the world. If 565 empty cases of beer are donated to each of the 440 stores, the goal of 250,000 cases should be met. “The key to a successful drive is the cooperation and kind generosity of our customers and the dedication and spirit of the volunteers, the vast majority of which are employees of The Beer Store, their families and friends,” says union president Rob Edwards. “Bring in your empties the weekend of May 26 and 27, and help find a cure for blood cancers,” urges Ted Moroz, president of The Beer Store. “Your donations will make a big difference.” Stores will also accept cash donations or $1 can be added to a purchase as a donation to the bottle drive throughout the month of May.

EMC lifestyle – The Arnprior District Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is recruiting more volunteers in a number of areas. The auxiliary has issued a call for new volunteers to tackle tasks from greeting and helping with breakfast service to gift shop staff. The auxiliary has had volunteers at the hospital and the Grove Nursing Home since 1961. The organization, with more than 200 members, helps with fundraising programs and assists staff with patient and resident care. “l’ve been coming to this hospital for a long time now,” said Doris Brown, who volunteers at the gift shop. “In fact I had all five of my kids at ADMH. Once all the kids were gone I worked part-time and then I started to volunteer, I really like the interaction with the people.” New volunteers are needed for the greeting and portering programs and the gift shop in the hospital in addition to helping with breakfast service at the Grove. Greeters help direct patients and visitors to the appropriate area of the hospital and educate the public about hand hygiene. Morning and afternoon shifts are available Monday through Friday. Porters assist clinical staff with transporting patients in the hospital. Morning shifts are available Monday through Friday. Volunteers to the greeter and porter programs have flexible schedules and can choose to work as often as they wish.

Timely gardening tips Donna DuBreuil

There are a number of taste and smell deterrents to keep wildlife away from vegetables and flowers. It’s best to use a number together. For example, by sprinkling blood meal fertilizer on the soil (dig it in lightly) around your plants or by placing dog hair in the toe of a nylon stocking that is tied to a stake placed a foot high around the plants, you are letting the animal know there is a predator nearby. If your barbecue hasn’t been used for a while, check it out thoroughly before lighting as red squirrels and mice will sometimes have a nest of babies under the grill. Keep www.wildlifeinfo.ca handy for all your wildlife questions throughout the summer. When it comes to wildlife decisions, an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure.

Ottawa-Carleton Wildlife Centre

EMC news - After a false start, gardening season is finally underway, but it’s important to apply a few easy tips so that you don’t have conflicts with wildlife. First, though, remember that if you see a four-legged wild critter around your property, it is very likely a mother with babies stashed nearby. The birthing season is at its peak between April and July when adult animals seek out spots closer to us and away from predators. It is a temporary situation, as once the babies are a little bigger, mother will move them back to a more natural setting. In the meantime, don’t take any action that you may regret until you check out www. wildlifeinfo.ca for humane solutions. In the Garden: Before taking down a tree or removing branches, check to make sure there aren’t leaf nests or cavities that would be home to babies that would be too young to escape. If you find a nest of baby squirrels when cleaning out a shed or garage, put it back intact exactly as you’ve found it and give the mother a few days to relocate her young. A nest of baby rabbits in your garden should also be left alone as the mother only returns during the night or at dusk to feed her young. Fresh new shoots on ornamental shrubs attract groundhogs and rabbits. Use plastic garden mesh to protect plants and discourage wildlife from the habit of coming to During peak birthing season, which includes May and June, check branches before you chop. your garden.

Three gardens bloom for Country Roots Garden Tour Theresa Fritz theresa.fritz@metroland.com

EMC events – Get a glimpse inside three unique country gardens in West Carleton June 3. That’s the day for the Ottawa Botanical Garden Society’s (OBGS) Country Roots Garden Tour. The event takes place rain or shine between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. The cost is $15 if you are a member of the society and $20 if you are not. “The Ottawa Botanical Garden Society, every once in a while, holds a tour. Last it was a tour of 12 gardens known as ‘Over the Hedge’,” explains Kate Harrigan, in charge of programs for the OBGS. “This is just a smaller one.” The gardens on this year’s tour are coun-

try gardens from Fitzroy Harbour, Carp and Dunrobin and each one has been selected for its unique characteristics. The gardens include Lynda and John Soper’s at 5124 Stonecrest Rd. in Fitzroy, Carole and Phil Reilly s at 3328 Diamondview Rd. in Carp and Norma and David Davidson’s property at 2470 Dunrobin Rd. Dunrobin. Harrigan said each garden features it own unique characteristics. “The Sopers live on rock basically and what is most interesting is seeing how they worked with that rock,” she notes, adding their garden was featured in Ottawa Magazine in April. The rocky landscape has provided immense limestone slabs and huge granite boulders, which have been used to form perennial beds

containing hosta, astilbe, primula, iris, campanula and many other genus. As for the Reillys, their garden was formerly Reilly’s Country Garden and Harrigan says they have a ground-mounted photovoltaic solar electric generating system. These extensive perennial gardens have evolved over the past 35 years and served as a specialty nursery for 25 years. This one-acre rural property contains 30 garden beds with about 2,000 varieties of hardy perennials and ornamental shrubs. The garden now boasts a 350-square-foot greenhouse over part of the vegetable garden with a passive solar energy collection system to warm the soil and extend the growing and harvesting season. The Davidson’s 106-acre property has wood chip pathways encircling the natural pond near the arbour covered in trumpet vine, bittersweet, clematis, and climbing roses that twist around tree swallow houses.

The woodland garden is a shady delight of hosta, primula, rhododendron and azalea, populated by a village of fairy statuary. “They have 5,000 new trees on their property,” notes Harrigan. “People might be interested to see what you can do with large property.” Attendees are reminded to bring their cameras to remember the beauty and hosts will be on site and willing to answer questions during the tour. “It is so much fun to see what can be done with a property,” Harrigan says. “It is nice to see that whole creative process.” The tour is self guided and attendees can visit the gardens anytime between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Maps to the gardens are located on the OBGS website at www.ottawagarden.ca. Tickets can be purchased on site at any of the gardens the day of the event, or by visiting the website.

Elmer Janzen of Ottawa played vice-skip and Galetta Bowls Club member Sandra Jefferies of Arnprior played lead position. Missing is David Jefferies of the Galetta Bowls Club. The skip of the team had to leave before photos were taken to drive to Burlington for a competitive fours lawn bowling competition. The team of Grant Fletcher (skip), Bob Smith (vice-skip) and Sue Smith (lead), all residents of Arnprior and members of the Galetta Bowls Club, won the high score one-game prize. Fourteen mixed (men and women) triples teams entered the tournament and the top-three game winners were the Les Cassidy team from Nepean Bowls Club.

some I could cuddle, as if they were real babies and had to be handled with special care. Although I tried not to show it, one of my most precious dolls was one I got as a surprise one Christmas. I had longed for it after seeing it in the Five and Dime Store in Renfrew, sure I would never have it. But there it was under the tree on that wonderful day back in the ‘30s, when there was little money for such frivolity. One of my dolls was not one you could cuddle. First of all, I was frightened she might break. You see, her arms, legs and face were made of china. Aunt Lizzie had brought it all the way from Regina one year, not taking a chance on sending it in the hand-me-down box that came regularly – cast-offs her sons could no longer wear. This one came with a name already on a little tag pinned to her lacy dress. It wasn’t a name I would have ever picked for such a beautiful doll. She was named Claire, but I thought she was much more suited to be called Margaret. Of course, my love for Princess Margaret Rose had a lot to do with my choice. I could spend hours playing with my dolls. I dressed and undressed them, sat them in the swing, making it into a pretend school room, and took on the persona of Miss Crosby, our teacher at the Northcote School. Of course, I was never as strict as was Miss Crosby. Other than the china doll, and the one I got as a surprise that one Christmas, there was nothing exceptional

about my other dolls. One or two had the paint almost worn off their faces, before I learned you couldn’t wash them with soap and water. But I loved them just as dearly as the others. I went through a real ritual before I went to bed at night. Father, one Christmas, had made me a doll crib. Pale blue. It was big enough to hold most of my dolls, except the china one, of course, because I couldn’t take a chance on her being broken through the night from the thrashing about of one of her cribmates. Yes, I was sure, they breathed, turned in the crib, and like my sister and I, pushed and shoved to get a share of the bed. So this doll slept on a little padded quilt Mother made. It was on the floor beside the crib, and well away from the path of anyone who might be making a trip through the kitchen during the night. At bedtime, before I climbed the stairs to the big hall, which served as a bedroom for Audrey and me, I gathered my dolls around me and crouched on the floor beside the little blue crib. I sang a song to the dolls fanned out around me, and then, just like Mother did before we climbed into our beds upstairs, I closed my eyes and said a soft prayer under my

breath that they would be safe during the night. I placed them on the flannelette mattress Mother had made, and which matched the nightgown I myself wore to bed. I made sure they were on their backs, the china doll on the mat at the foot of the crib, and then I covered them gently with the little blanket Mother had also made out a flannelette remnant. And then I checked each doll to make sure it was in what I thought was a comfortable position. Only then was I ready for bed. And then often a miracle happened over the night. While I was asleep in my bed upstairs, I wouldn’t hear it, but when I got up in the morning, I would see that there had been a stirring during the night. I would remember exactly how I had placed the dolls in the little blue crib. But they would have moved. One or two would have changed places! And wasn’t Sally at the foot of the crib the night before? And now she was cuddled at the head, with her face turned to the kitchen wall. And I would marvel at the miracle before my eyes. My dolls really were babies after all! Hadn’t this just proved it? It would be many years before I could come close to explaining the miracle that I saw some mornings in the kitchen of that old log house. Was it a real miracle? Was it fantasy? Or was it my beloved sister Audrey, who was always out of bed long before me in the morning, who moved the dolls around so that her little sister would cling to a childhood dream for just a few years longer?

Calvin Warren of Ashdad keeps a careful watch on an 80-pound pig being roasted at the inaugural Hog Wild Pork Fest at the Renfrew Fairgrounds on the long May weekend. Warren’s culinary masterpiece was cooked for Saturday’s by-donation dinner, which was a fundraiser for the Upper Ottawa Valley Ringette Association. The two-day event included a demolition derby and a chicken-rib cook-off, won by the Rocky Mountain House. The Rib Grillers from the McNab-Braeside Fire Department finished fourth out of 14 entrants.

Food processor secret to quick, easy cinnamon buns Food ‘n Stuff PAT TREW

EMC lifestyle - Fresh cinnamon buns, homemade and served warm from the oven for breakfast, are one of the better things in life. In this recipe, the food processor does all the mixing and kneading. Once you try it and discover just how quick and easy it is, you’ll be ready to make cinnamon buns again and again. To make morning preparation even easier, do some of

the prep the night before. You can measure the dry ingredients, prepare the cinnamonbrown sugar filling, and even butter the baking pan ahead of time. Dough 2 cups flour 1 tbsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1 cup buttermilk Filling

1/4 - 1/3 cup softened butter (not margarine) 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 tsp. cinnamon Measure the dry ingredients for the dough into the food processor. Cover, and pulse for about 6 seconds to mix them. Your food processor should have a removable insert in the lid for pouring liquids. Take out the insert and, with the motor running, pour the oil and buttermilk through the opening into the dry ingredients. Continue processing until the dough forms a ball. This takes about one minute. Turn the dough out on a lightly-floured surface, and shape it into a ball. With a rolling pin, roll the

dough out to make a rectangle 15” long and 10” wide. The long side should be facing you. For the filling, spread the softened butter over the dough, then sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up the rectangle tightly, starting from the long side closest to you. Pinch the seam to seal.

With a sharp knife, cut the roll in half, then mark each half into 5 portions of equal width. Cut through the roll where you’ve marked it. Marking the dough first, then cutting it, will help you in making slices that are even in width. Arrange the slices, cut side up, in a greased round 9” cake pan. Place 8 slices around the

edge of the pan and 2 in the middle. This gives them room to expand as they bake. Bake at 400F for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven, and set the pan on a cake rack. Cool for about 5 minutes in the pan before serving. Makes 10 buns

Echo echo back with The Eclipse by Joyce Carol Oates EMC events - They are back. It has been over a year, but Echo echo Productions is set to return to the stage once again. Acclaimed for their choice of quality plays and their excellent performances, Echo echo will be bringing the work of Joyce Carol Oates to the Neat Schoolhouse stage in Burnstown May 31 through June 2. Oates’ The Eclipse is a poignant drama about a mother and daughter at odds who must learn to live together. Daughter Stephanie, an activist for women’s rights, is reaching the pinnacle of her political career with the feminist party. However, she feels that she is being held back by the need to care for her mother Muriel, a proud intelligent woman who is descending further into paranoia and delusion, Muriel is subject to swift and harsh mood swings, which are often directed towards her daughter. Once a well-respected teacher, Muriel has spiraled into mental chaos. She often believes that she is being spied on, particularly by former employers, and her mind has created an imaginary suitor named Senor Rios.

Valley Heritage Radio operations director Bill Parker had reason to smile. He left the May 1 meeting of Horton council after hearing council agreed to attach signs to each of its entrance signs to the township with a secondary signs that reads: Home of Valley Heritage Radio, 98.7 FM.

Parker called the response wonderful. He also noted that listeners have really come forward to help the station. In easily surpassing its recent fundraiser goal of $70,000, he says Valley Heritage Radio staff were overwhelmed. The cost of the signs will be covered by Valley Heritage Radio. Council unanimously supported the

of her moods had called in a complaint of abuse to the hotline, a call in which she has no recollection of making. Confronted by the young social worker’s questions, Stephanie is forced to face the truth about her mother’s condition and in a revealing dialogue explores the darkness that plagues her mother’s mind. It’s been a year since Heather Sagmeister and Chris Kyte have hit the stage together in MOMologues. Known for their brilliant dynamic on stage, the two driving forces behind Echo echo Productions are eager to return to the spotlight. This time they are pleased to announce that they will be joined by talented newcomers Kelsey Wagstaff and Herb Roseneck. In addition to the performance, Echo echo Productions will be helping a local school achieve a fundraising goal. Wagstaff, who played Belle in Opeongo High School’s musical Beauty and the Beast, is particularly excited to be a part of this production. A young philanthropist, Wagstaff spearheads a group called Project

Bob Kingsbury. “We should be proud of them.” Alluding to the good relationship between Valley Heritage Radio and Horton, and the prospect of Val-

In an effort to support Kelsey in her goal, as this is her last year of school, Echo echo Productions will have donation jars placed at the door for each performance. The Eclipse will be their most technically challenging show yet, so they have enlisted the help of Jeff Scott, Stephanie MacGregor, Richard Laxton, Dylan Dagg, Chantel Richard and Yan-Nick Michaud to bring the show life. This production promises to be a profound and moving piece that has stretched the abilities and range of the group’s actors as no other production has. It will be without a doubt entertaining, but it will also be thoughtprovoking and emotional for the audience. Show times are 8 p.m. Tickets coast $15 and can be purchased at the Neat Café (1715 Calabogie Rd.), at www. neatfood.com or at the door, though seating is limited. ley Heritage signs at the entrances to the township, Coun. Margaret Whyte said, “I think the marriage should go ahead.” The Highway 17 signs at the McNab-Braeside and Whitewater Region entrances will require approval from the Ministry of Transportation. The county will have to approve signs on Bruce Street, Storyland Road and River Road.

As summer begins we are bombarded with messages about the dangers of the sun and the importance of using sunblock. Yet somehow we just don’t seem to be getting the message. One third of all newly diagnosed cancer cases are skin cancer. Skin cancer or melanoma has now become the most common of all cancers in Canada and it’s not just exposure to the sun that accounts for these numbers but also the exposure to tanning beds.

The risk of melanoma skin cancer is increased by 75% when the use of tanning devices starts before the age of 35. When asked, ADMH Dermatologist and Skin Oncologist Dr. Jason Sack offered the following "Tanning beds were recently escalated to the highest cancer risk category (carcinogenic to humans) by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer. A tan provides inadequate protection from the sun for those on vacation. One of the busiest seasons for indoor tanning starts in January as students prepare for spring break. In reality, a tan offers very limited protection from sunlight or burning; often equivalent to a sunscreen with a meager SPF of 2-4. Certainly not nearly enough for skin safety in the sun!" Dr . Sack further adds "Personally, I have 20 and 30 year old patients in my practice that I've diagnosed with melanoma and continue to follow closely for recurrence. Just ask them what they think of tanning beds and how they'd do Melanoma cases continue to increase. A referral from things differently if they could!" your family doctor is required to see Dr. Sack.  Let’s start spreading the message to feel good about yourself and your natural skin colour. The “Enjoy the Skin You’re In” campaign is designed to help raise awareness to the risks of indoor tanning while at the same time promoting positive body image. Through the use of social media, several messages have been produced and we encourage every parent to watch them with their kids. www.Facebook.com/YourSkin and http://www.youtube.com/playlistlist=PLA09459260614C9C7

A Bittersweet Gallery Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;OVE Story In Burnstown Saturday EMC events - During an early March visit to Burnstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bittersweet Gallery, patron Lynn Griffiths got chatting with owner Cheryl Babineau. Babineau was telling Griffiths about a concept she was working on for Bittersweetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual spring open house to feature the 2012 collection of Montreal jewellery designer Anne Marie Chagnon called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OVEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. She had been brainstorming for a suitable moniker for the event and had come up with Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;OVE. When Griffiths told Babineau about the volunteer work she does with the Walk of Hope for Ovarian Cancer Canada and their its fundraising campaign called LOVE HER, it seemed a fortuitous coincidence. Griffiths has been involved as a

volunteer with OCC since losing her sister to the disease and is now co-chairing the Walk in the National Capital. Wheels were soon set in motion to partner with the foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cochair, Shelley Levoy. Meanwhile, in the spirit of the Easter holiday, Babineau created candles made by filling empty eggshells with soy and bees wax and gave them away to friends and visitors to the gallery. The luminous eggs were so well received that they have now evolved as a eggclusive gift for those who donate, sponsor or purchase at the Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;OVE event. The egg seemed the perfect symbol of fertility, hope, love and the fragility of life.

The symbol also pays a befitting homage to the Quebec designerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest work. THE OVE COLLECTION

Chagnon describes her new work: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Woven around the themes of childbirth, harmony and love, OVE offers round open shapes, coiling around each other, and rich, warm and enchanting materials: the flexibility of fine leather, the elegance of 22-k gold and as always a signature that stamps each piece, the symbiosis of hand-sculpted pewter, glass and resin.â&#x20AC;? To help portray Chagnonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artistic process, Babineau has plans to display images of the designers original artwork.

Jumpstart promo at Canadian Tire EMC business - The fourth annual Jumpstart Day will take place this Saturday, May 26 at Canadian Tire stores. The day-long fundraising event is the celebration of Jumpstartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s One Million Red Balls campaign, which, through the month of May, encourages customers to donate

$2 in exchange for a red ball - a national symbol for childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play. Donations to Jumpstart help the one in three Canadian families who cannot afford to enrol their children in organized sports and recreation. All funds raised through the One Million Red Balls cam-

paign and on Jumpstart Day stay within the local community to help local children. Since 2005, Canadian Tire Jumpstart has helped 439,383 children across Canada have the chance to play by removing the financial barriers that prevent children from participating.

THE TOWNSHIP OF LANARK HIGHLANDS

Each year hundreds of lives are lost because emergency vehicles could not arrive on scene fast enough. Common causes for this are no PIN numbers, private lanes not marked and providing no access for emergency vehicles.

and raise awareness of the foundations goals and objectives. For instance, there is no early detection screening test for ovarian cancer? This means that 70 per cent of women do not survive longer than five years because they are diagnosed in the late stages of the disease. If we were able to detect the disease early, the survival rate would dramatically increase to 90 per cent. Ovarian Cancer Canada is the only registered Canadian charity dedicated to overcoming ovarian cancer. For more information The Ovarian Cancer Canada website http:// www.ovariancanada.org/ is a wealth of information.
