News - The Town of Arnprior is already socking away money for the landfill closure, but it will cost twice that much to later expand or create new site. That was the warning from environmental engineer officer Deanna Streifel at Monday’s council meeting. The town sets aside a portion of funds every year in preparation for the $1.5 million closing costs in about 2034. That works out to $172 per resident. The question is whether to do the same for the $3 million ($345 per person) cost for what comes next. “We need to start thinking

about that now,” Streifel said. However, she added that it is unlikely the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources would approve either an expanded or new landfill site. Requirements are much more stringent than in the past when residential properties could be within 500 metres of a landfill. “There are currently no lands located within the boundaries of the Town of Arnprior that would be large enough to accommodate a new landfill,” Streifel wrote in her report. Still, she doesn’t rule out the possibility of a consortium of area municipalities creating a nearby site. See CARP Page 3

News - Arnprior is gearing up for another full day of entertainment in the park. The third annual Priorpalooza is set for Saturday, June 7 at Robert Simpson Park. The day-long festival of music grew out of the Arn-

prior 150 celebration. This year’s event has some changes, with M. Sullivan and Son the major sponsor. The entertainers will be local musicians scheduled for the Concerts in the Park series. For more, see Page 32.

Sullivans celebrate 100 wonderful years News - The Sullivans know how to throw a party. M. Sullivan And Son, the renowned Arnprior construction company, held a gala 100th anniversary at the wonderfully transformed Arena A in the Nick Smith Centre last Friday. The event received rave reviews, appropriate for what is generally recognized as the longestrunning family-owned company in the country, About 500 people gathered to help the company, recognized as one of Canada’s 50 best managed firms, celebrate 100 years of excellence. A five-course meal was followed by a dance to the wee hours. In between, a number of speakers, from both

the company and the community, praised and reminisced about the company’s 100 years. Arnprior Mayor David Reid, who has a long history with the Sullivans, applauded the company’s commitment to its employees and quality work. John Yakabuski, running for re-election as riding MPP also praised the company’s quality leadership, work ethic, safety record and loyal employees. In a non-partisan gesture, he shared congratulations from Premier Kathleen Wynne. Brian Hanington entertained and informed the crowd with anecdotes from writing the company history, ‘A Hundred Years on a Handshake’ For more on the occasion, see next week’s Arnprior Chronicle-Guide.

Campbell to run for third term as mayor John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

News – Mary Campbell has made it ofďŹ cial. The incumbent mayor of McNabBraeside is running for a third term. In a news release Monday, Campbell said “it is with deep respect for and appreciation of the people of McNab-Braeside that I am submitting my name for election as mayor of the township.â€? Campbell is up against township councillor Aldene Styles and former Arnprior councillor Tom Peckett, who both ďŹ led earlier. “Many of you are wondering why it has taken me so long to ďŹ le,â€? Campbell said in her announcement. “As of January, I was seriously questioning whether I continued to reect the values of McNab-Braeside,â€? she explained. “How could 1,400 households sign a petition demanding that council sign an agreement not designed to provide equal access to affordable recreation programming across the Township? “I have lived in a have/have not society and want no part of it for McNab-Braeside. How can I insist on frugality, transparency and accountability among our staff but not apply the same rigor to third party agreements?â€? Campbell pointed out that about the same time, some members of council were critical of her efforts to

facilitate resolution of the Neat Coffee Shop situation, at the request of Adam and Kim McKinty. “While I am the ďŹ rst to emphasis that council and the mayor have no legislative jurisdiction regarding the building or ďŹ re codes, how can I just leave residents by the side of the road without doing my best to help ďŹ nd a solution to their problems?,â€? she asked. She said she is ambitious for McNab-Braeside and with unlimited funds would love to introduce all kinds of new facilities and services to the township, “but how can I not see that there are families that are ďŹ nding it hard to cope with the dramatic rise in costs.â€? She stressed that it is not just a question of the number that council is willing to invest in things like economic development, housing and recreation but the speed at which it is willing to increase spending. “So, yes, I think double digit tax increases are too difďŹ cult for many of our households to absorb,â€? she said. “So there I was feeling totally out of step with what I saw as the changing values of McNab-Braeside when many of you called or approached me assuring me that the traditional ethics of McNab-Braeside are still very much alive. During my two weeks vacation, I took a step back to consider what has to happen for McNab-Braeside to move forward

and am I really the best mayoral candidate to get us there. “We need to be smart, we need to be strong. Rural Ontario is under assault.â€? While McNab-Braeside has beneďŹ ted from federal programs, it is not getting a fair share of provincial infrastructure, recreation, and economic program funding, she said. Meanwhile provincial policies such as the proposed police funding formulae constantly make demands on the property tax base, threatening the ability of residents to afford to remain in their homes. She suggested one answer is to expand the tax base through development. However, legislation associated with Species at Risk, Eco-region diversity, aggregate resources, and the new Provincial Policy Statement makes development increasingly difďŹ cult, she said. “Some of this provincial policy can work for McNab-Braeside helping to protect our ‘ruralness’, but only if we use municipal legislation to contain, counteract, govern the interpretation of provincial policy. “We need to invest in the future. There is no value in hiding out, telling ourselves that ‘we could never do that’. To survive, McNab-Braeside has to face the future head on. “If we don’t make decisions for ourselves, you can be sure that someone else is looking to make them for us.â€?

TOWN OF ARNPRIOR/PHOTO ILLUSTRATION

Signs of change Arnprior town staff have recommended the design on the left of the top photo as the new sign on Hwy. 417 west and east. A similar design will go along county roads leading into town, should council agree. The current Hwy. 417 westbound sign will go to the marina, at the request of the Rotary Club, which donated it to the town.

Lang enters township race Staff

News - White Lake resident Heather Lang entered the township municipal race Tuesday. “I ďŹ led my paper today to run for a councillor position in McNab, primarily because I believe it is time for new perspectives

on council,â€? Lang said. A communications specialist and single mother of two, Lang has volunteered on McNab Days and favours service agreements with Arnprior. Read a more thorough proďŹ le story in an upcoming issue.

Service club peddles to youth’s side with new bike Cell tower

proposed on Perneel property

Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

News – The Arnprior Lions Club wheeled in a new bike for the boy hit by a truck recently. Club treasurer Wayne Carrol read the Chronicle-Guide story about 13-year-old Colin Rothschild who was hit while riding his bike near the Canadian Tire on April 23. The driver offered him $50 then left the scene. He later told the Rothschilds that Colin should pay him $2,000 for damages to his truck. “It just didn’t seem fair,� Carrol said during the Lions’ meeting at the Masonic Hall on May 22. “This young man’s gone through enough. We figured he deserved a new one.� A brand new bike was brought from a back room, past the dozens on hand after dinner, and wheeled up to Colin by Lion Don Gougeon. “Not everybody will take off and leave you,� Carrol said. “The Lions Club will be here for you.� Colin, one of six kids in his family, was smiling from ear to ear. He said the accident shook him up, but that he’s feeling much better and is looking forward to getting back in the saddle. He also appreciates all the attention. “It’s pretty awesome. A brand new bike,� he said. “I feel really lucky.� Colin’s mother Tegan watched from the back of the room. She too appreciated all the kindness shown her family. “We are just really grateful to the Lions Club and the whole community,� Tegan said. “Everyone’s been really wonderful.�

Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

News – There could be a new telecommunications tower in McNabBraeside township next year. Rogers would like to install a tower on the township’s Perneel property at 2379 Russet Dr. The addition would improve wireless coverage in the Glasgow station area, says the company. A representative for Rogers was at the May 13 public works committee meeting to discuss a potential agreement. The committee and now council have agreed to have a site plan completed so members and legal counsel can review it.

Colin Rothschild, right, receives a new bike from Arnprior Lions Club member Wayne Carrol. The young lad was hit by a truck recently, destroying his bike.

NEXT STEPS

The next step would then be to sign the lease and send notices to residents within the vicinity of the tower for their comments or concerns. After taking the feedback into account, the construction would proceed in 2015 and is expected to take about six to eight weeks.

Rogers would pay a proposed $1,000 per month rent for use of the property, with a proposed annual increase of 1.5 per cent. Rent payments would begin a month after the start of construction. The proposed tower is a 106-metre steel tower. The exact size and location of the property Rogers is looking to lease is yet to be determined. Mayor Mary Campbell said she’d like to make sure the public is fully aware of the proposal and where it’s at. “Right now we are about to pass and approval for a site plan,� she said. “I’d like to make sure the public is aware this is still a discussion. The site plan will indicate where it’s going to be.� Campbell said she wants the public to know council has been approached by Rogers to put up the tower and that they are “favourably disposed to it.� Council had discussed having a public meeting on the issue but decided not to go ahead with it. “I don’t like surprising the public,� said council. “I like to get it out there with the accurate information.�

POLITICS

Green candidate makes six in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke race John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

News – As expected, there are six candidates vying to be elected MPP in RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke on June 12. The last candidate to register just prior to the deadline May 22 was the Green Party’s Benjamin Wright. While he isn’t listed on the party’s list of candidates on its website as of press time, he is reportedly from the Ottawa area. He joins incumbent Progressive Conservative John Yakabuski of Barry’s Bay, Liberal Rod Boileau of McNab-Braeside, NDP’s Brian Dougherty

of Arnprior, Ontario Provincial Confederation of Regions Party member Murray Reid of Admaston and Independent Chad Beckwith-Smith of Cormac. Province-wide there are 616 candidates representing 20 political parties up for election in the 107 ridings. A complete list of candidates is available at the Elections Ontario website wemakevotingeasy.ca through a ‘Find Your Candidate’ quick link. ALL-CANDIDATES FORUMS

The Renfrew County branch of the Secondary School Teachers of Ontario is host-

ing an all-candidates debate for the riding’s six candidates Wednesday, June 4. The forum will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Opeongo High School between Cobden and Douglas. An all-candidates session, hosted by the Renfrew County unit of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, was scheduled to be held Tuesday, May 7 at the Cobden Agricultural Hall. An all-candidates forum for Carleton-Mississippi Mills’ four hopefuls will be held in Pakenham’s Stewart Community Centre Monday, June 2 at 7 p.m. It is sponsored by the Arnprior Region and Lanark Federations of Agriculture.

The leaders of Ontario’s three main political parties will square off in a 90-minute televised debate on Tuesday, June 3. NDP Leader Andrea Horwarth, Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak and Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne will participate in the live debate hosted by TVO’s Steve Paikin at the CBC Broadcast Centre in Toronto. The debate will get underway at 6:30 p.m. and will be broadcast live on CBC, CTV, CHCH, CPAC, Global, Sun News Network and TVO. Mike Schreiner, leader of the Green Party of Ontario, has expressed concern he was not

invited to participate in the televised debate and this week’s Northern Ontario debate. He called for broader electoral reform in the wake of a Liberal pledge to bring ranked balloting to all municipal elections. “I strongly support electoral reform for municipal elections and will cooperate with other parties seeking such reforms. But shouldn’t we have fair elections at the provincial level too?” asked Schreiner in a news release. “It’s time to reconsider proportional representation for our legislature.” Electoral reform will eliminate the need for strategic voting, reduce negative cam-

paigning, and ensure every vote counts, say the Greens. ELECTION JOBS

Returning officer Lewis MacDonald, who is overseeing his third provincial election in the riding, says he is still looking for more workers to help on election day. The returning office will be training poll clerks, information assistants and deputy returning officers for polling stations around the riding right up to election day, June 12, he notes. Anyone interested in working for Elections Ontario election day should call 1-866532-3174.

About 30 people attended the official opening of Conservative candidate John Yakabuski’s Arnprior campaign office in the former Curves gym in the Sullivan building.

Yakabuski opens campaign office in Arnprior, differs with NDP on hydro rates John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

News – Progressive Conservative candidate in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke John Yakabuski told a crowd of about 30 people at his Arnprior campaign office opening Arnprior that while things appear “extremely positive” in this riding, the race appears to be neck-andneck provincially. Yakabuski, who has served as riding MPP for the past 11 years, said he is taking nothing for granted and had driven 5,000 kilometres around the riding in the first week of the campaign.

The PC candidate has five campaign offices in the riding, while his five competitors are relying more on telephone and social media to communicate with voters. For example, NDP candidate Brian Dougherty says voters can contact him through Facebook or through the area NDP website at www. renfrewndp.ca. The PCs admit their offices won’t likely be open as many hours as in past elections, but they do give their campaign a presence in each community. “It goes along with my promise to serve more than one end of the riding,” said Yakabuski. “I’m committed to serve every community in the riding.” He pledged to con-

tinue to work hard for constituents if re-elected. Many of the issues facing the riding 40 years ago are still a problem, he noted. Yakabuski said the province “is at a crossroads,” grappling with a debt that’s larger than all the rest of Canada’s provinces combined. “Other provinces realize we have to get out of the hole … but this (Liberal) government is not doing that,” he said. “We need to turn the ship around. We can’t do it overnight … and it wouldn’t be easy,” Yakabuski said the tough decisions will likely “ruffle some feathers,” but “we have to start somewhere.” Among the people attending the Arnprior of-

fice opening were Bert and Pat Reitsma, who supported Yakabuski’s father, Paul, when Renfrew South included part of West Carleton. HYDRO RATES

In a news release, Yakabuski charged that the passing of the Green Energy Act is a major reason for the skyrocketing increases in hydro rates, The act has caused hydro rates to grow at unaffordable rates by guaranteeing massively subsidized rates for wind and solar power projects, he charged.

News – Front line professional and support staff at Canada’s largest private sector provider of home care say they are being pushed towards a strike that could soon affect patients in the Arnprior, Deep River and Barry’s Bay areas. The Ontario Provincial Service Employees Union (OPSEU) is charging that Paramed Home Health Care is pressuring workers in Renfrew County to accept a deal that will extend the freeze on their wages for a total of five years. Starting wage for Paramed Home Health Care is $12.88 an hour for a home support worker. For that they are expected to pro-

vide their own vehicle to shuttle between appointments, notes the union in a news release. “That’s below the poverty line, and made especially dire by the fact that most of these workers - predominantly women - are limited to part-time hours,” adds the OPSEU release. The union points out that this contrasts with the pay of the CEO of Extendicare, the corporation which owns Paramed. In 2012 Business Week reported CEO Timonthy Lukenda earned $1.129 million in compensation. Now Paramed says it cannot offer their Arnprior and other Renfrew County workers - which also include personal

support workers, nurses and clerical staff - anything better for the next three years, says the union. “This is despite the fact that home care is the one sector where the government has been providing funding increases. “Last year it was six per cent. This year the proposed increase for the sector was intended to be five per cent.” Depending on the outcome of the election, the personal support workers may or may not receive the entire wage increase government promised them earlier this year, notes OPSEU. The rise in the minimum wage for PSWs was intended to

R00127716688

Home care workers accuse Paramed of ‘pushing them towards a strike’ stem the massive turnover in the positions. However, if Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak implements an acrossthe-board wage freeze, even these workers may not achieve the $4 an hour wage increase promised to them by 2016, says OPSEU The union has been demanding financial disclosure from Paramed during the bargaining process. While Paramed has agreed to provide the disclosure, they continue to drag their feet on doing so, charges OPSEU. There are 140 Paramed Home Health Care workers represented by OPSEU in Renfrew County. No strike date has been set.

Yakabuski, Dougherty disagree on reason for high hydro rates Continued from Page 6

The Renfrew County committee formed to fight the rising hydro rates has promised to grill candidates on the issue at all-candidates debates (see Page 8). “I can understand why the NDP are now trying to distance themselves from the disastrous energy policies that they supported,” Yakabuski said. “The Ontario PCs are the only party that have consistently defended the ratepayer’s interests and put forward plans to bring hydro rates under control.” He said a PC government will end wasteful subsidies for wind turbines and solar panels; bring about real accountability to the operation of Hydro One and OPG, pursue safe, reliable, cost-effective technologies like nuclear, hydroelectricity and natural gas; and open up access to affordable hydroelectricity and natural gas in nearby jurisdictions such as Quebec and several U.S states. On the other hand, Renfrew-NipissingPembroke, NDP candidate Brian Dougherty, in a news release, maintains it was the Conservatives who created the current mess with

Ontario Hydro. “It was Mike Harris and the Conservatives who broke up Ontario Hydro, created expensive new bureaucracies, and tried to sell it off. Now (Conservative leader) Tim Hudak is calling for the same bad medicine that didn’t work the first time,” he said. Instead of the radical surgery Hudak prescribes, Dougherty supports NDP leader Andrea Horwath’s plan to take the HST off hydro bills. “Middle class families are getting squeezed like never before and nothing squeezes them harder than hydro bills. Taking the HST off hydro bills is a simple achievable step that will put money back into the pockets of every Ontario family and help make life more affordable,” said Dougherty. An Ontario NDP government will take HST and debt retirement charge off Hydro bills, saving about $200 per household every year, he added. “Ontario families are paying some of the highest electricity bills in the country. Instead of making life affordable, the Liberals and Conservatives decided to add an unfair tax on

top of that. We’re going to take it off and make life affordable for families,” he said. Dougherty maintained that “irresponsible” ideas from Hudak will make life “less affordable and much more stressful” for families in the riding. Dougherty registered his disapproval of Hudak’s plan to cut 100,000 public service jobs in Ontario. Hudak’s Conservatives would fire school, municipal and health care support staff, and increase the size of public school classes, he charged. “The kids that need the help most are going to be hurt most if this happens,” says the Arnprior father of two and youth volunteer. “The jobs Tim Hudak is talking about cutting are some of the best and most important jobs in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke,” said Dougherty. “I’m old enough to remember what happened to Ontario under the Harris Conservatives. Voting for the Hudak Conservatives would be a step in the wrong direction.” Another way the NDP plans to make life more affordable is by increasing the minimum wage to $12 per hour while cutting the corporate tax rate for small businesses.

OPINION EDITORIAL

Learning to be great again

I

t’s time Ontarians got the plan for the future they deserve, and one they can be proud of. A large number of democratic election campaigns focus on the challenges facing the populace that happens to be voting at the time – only a handful have the luxury of deciding what to do with good fortune. Politicians direct their energy towards any number of issues: health care, education, energy, crime, immigration, the economy. The priority depends on the point of view. Incumbents tend to take a longer view, as think they’ve done a good job up until now and want to look to the horizon to see what other great things can be accomplished. Those who sit in opposition or are seeking office look for things gone wrong or what they feel the public is clamouring for. In Ontario, much of this year’s election campaign has been focusing on the economy and how it can be put back on the path to prosperity. Some want to spend their way to success, others want to cut spending to bring back the good times. The deficit and debt play a significant role in the conversation, with each party pledging to put Ontario back in the black sometime in the near future. What most of these schemes lack is a focal point, something basic within the mandate of a provincial

government on which to rebuild our society from the smoking crater it now finds itself in. What should Ontario’s next government focus on to make this a good place to live? The answer should be academic: education. The benefits of a sound education system are numerous, but there are several reasons why it should be a priority for the province. First, in order to continue the transition away from a manufacturing-based economy, education becomes much more vital for the residents of Ontario. Arresting the decline in Education Quality and Accountability Office standardized mathematics scores in particular, representing skills important in fields such as engineering, medicine, information technology and financial services, should be among the priorities. Second, a more educated population not only earns more and therefore pays more taxes (helping reduce the deficit), but is attractive to investors looking to start up a business or international firms looking to set up shop. Third, a focus on education can only help encourage those who may lack the skills or training to find a job get back in the learning habit. A culture of education can beget more education. If there’s one thing you should be asking candidates who come to your door, it should be: “What’s your plan for education?�

Leadership lacking in dispute To the Editor: Subject: Arnprior Chronicle-Guide article ‘No Dice’ May 22 by Derek Dunn. I have observed the strategy and style of politicians at all levels for many years. The most impressive, articulate and focused individuals are the world leaders. Municipal elected officials come in various categories, depending on the population. Paul Yakabuski represented Renfrew County in the Ontario legislature for many years. I always thought that the secret to his repeated re-election success was in his tireless work in his constituency. He knew several generations of the people in his riding. He knew their lifestyle, aspirations, needs and problems. I did not always agree with him, but I did admire his understanding of the interests of his constituents. The media reports on the controversy between McNab-Braeside Council and the Town of Arnprior demonstrate an astounding misunderstanding of the interests of the residents and taxpayers of the township. I read fear-mongering statements about the possibility of an OMB-forced amalgamation with the town of Arnprior. There’s no need for that as M-B has already

lost a large portion of the industrial tax base to Arnprior. Our municipality is changing dramatically. We still promote our rural status, and we aspire to make this township a great stand-alone, environmentally conscious, fiscally responsible community. We lack essential services like library and some year-round recreation facilities but can easily out-source those services to neighbouring municipalities like Arnprior. Some day with population growth, we will be able to afford our own facilities. Opponents to the proposal for service agreements with Arnprior should acknowledge that we really are one close-knit community, and we must remember that the whole Arnprior community supported the Ontario Disaster Relief Program following the 2009 flood. This was a significant benefit to McNabBraeside for residential and municipal infrastructure damage. My family and I support a service agreement with Arnprior. We believe that library and recreation are extensions of the taxpayer funded programs in our primary and secondary schools.

To the Editor: The committee for ‘Join the Fight Against Hydro Rates’ met again on May 23. Because an election has been called, we have decided that concerned residents should now lobby the candidates that are campaigning in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke. They are John Yakabuski, PC; Brian Dougherty, NDP; Rob Boileau, Liberal. You should also continue to write, phone and email our three party leaders – Tim Hudak, Kathleen Wynne and Andrea Horwath – to express your concerns, issues and objections to the hydro rate increases as well as the billing problems that continue to exist. We will continue to have the ‘Join the Fight Against Hydro Rates’ forms in area businesses so that they are easily accessible to residents.

Listening to Nature can be enlightening, entertaining Watershed Ways

ecology, a brand new area of scientific research. A 2011 paper in Bioscience by Krause and others identifies three basic types of sounds: biophony, or animal sounds; geophony, sounds of wind, water, landslides, etc.; and anthrophony, sounds of machines and human activities. Few people are aware of the extent to which the unintended silencing of organisms by human activities has already occurred. The paper’s authors note that Rachel Carson, in calling her 1962 work Silent Spring, correctly identified the richness of the sounds of nature as an indicator of environmental quality. They say, “it is surprising that sound has not become a more universally appreciated measure of a coupled natural–human system.� According to the authors of the 2011 Bioscience paper, urban soundscapes often reinforce a growing disconnect between humans and nature termed “nature deficit disorder�

by Richard Louv in Last Child in the Woods. In contrast, less disturbed soundscapes provide recreational, therapeutic, educational, research, artistic and aesthetic values, and “foster a conservation ethic by directly influencing people’s ability to connect with the natural world.� The U.S. National Park Service has a formal policy that it will “restore to the natural condition wherever possible those

park soundscapes that have become degraded by unnatural sounds (noise), and will protect natural soundscapes from unacceptable impacts.� We can help create more diverse soundscapes by inviting nature back into the places where we live.

Township needs to encourage development To the Editor: I find it necessary to write to a more public venue rather than the council of McNab-Braeside in regards to the present stagnation of development in the township. Fundamental changes must be implemented to reverse the current trend of development exodus from the township. Residents, developers, and businesses are intimidated and discouraged by the lack of direction, concise requirements, accountability, and excessive costs. The situation has been years in the making and will take a more cooperative environment and policy changes to promote development. A portion of the latest tax increas-

es are a direct consequence of present policies and the confrontational, narrow-minded approach represented by McNab-Braeside that appears difficult to change. Sustainable growth is merely an overused phrase if little is done, and confidence to invest in the township starts with political will to promote and expedite a more accommodating method. Solutions? There are plenty. The “us against them� culture prevalent in dealing with current council and administration must change to a more harmonious approach. With no water and sewer services, it is restrictive for large development, so smaller developers, enterprising business, and residents must be en-

sounded near them; nor did they of the deepest and loudest tones of a bassoon. They were indifferent to shouts, if care was taken that the breath did not strike them.� Scientists have been slower to recognize that each species contributes to a complex sound ecosystem in which individual animals adapt to sounds made by neighbours – both of their own and other species – and to the wide array of sounds made by the physical environment. Scientists are now exploring the ecological dimensions of sound in nature. In ‘The Great Animal Orchestra’, Bernie Krause describes his journey from being a professional recording engineer (think Rolling Stones) to a professional ecologist. Krause was asked to obtain natural sounds to incorporate in musical recordings, and fell in love with the beauty and variety of sounds in different ecosystems. He is now one of the leading proponents of soundscape

Opinion - The coming of spring brings sounds of water in motion – dripping of melting snow from rooftops, rivulets running down the street and pouring into a storm drain, or the roar of a river in full flood. Spring is a time of winds and storms, each with its own acoustic signature. Noticing the sounds in your environment, and accepting them, is an ancient meditation practice. Hearing allows us to track what is happening in our environment. Sound provides information about objects at a range of distances and in all directions: a three-dimensional sense of the world unhindered by darkness or by the presence of other objects that block our line of sight. Hearing likely evolved quickly in higher animals. Birds, mammals, fish, amphibians, insects and crustaceans all rely on hearing to detect other

organisms and changes in their physical environment. Being able to hear the approach of a predator is a life or death matter. Being able to silently stalk a prey animal can determine a hunter’s success. Once animals could hear, they evolved the ability to make sounds and communicate with each other. Whether we’re a human, a frog, a bird, or a cricket, what we vocalize (say, sing or stridulate) can determine who we attract for a partner. Biologists for centuries have studied how different species hear and how they use sound to communicate. Charles Darwin expended considerable effort in determining whether earthworms could hear. In his book, ‘The formation of vegetable mould, through the action of worms, with observations on their habits’, Darwin concluded that: “Worms do not possess any sense of hearing. They took not the least notice of the shrill notes from a metal whistle, which was repeatedly

NATURE

The wonderful addiction fed by a bird observatory charity challenge Lifestyle - I am a Nature addict. That addiction, now in its 56th year, encompasses all forms of Nature, plant and animal alike. Birds were the first group to hook me. A Nature addiction requires that considerable time be spent immersed in the elixir of the natural world. For me an early morning stroll on my property can do the trick. But now and again I need a stronger “fix,� which is a full day spent in Nature. Last week my “fix� was a 24hour birding extravaganza. I competed in the PEPtBO Challenge, a competition that raises funds for the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory (PEPtBO). MAY EVENT

This team event takes place in May in Prince Edward County. My previous teammates couldn’t participate, but Geof Burbidge, a fellow I met at Point Pelee, volunteered to join me. We started at 3:35 p.m. at Wellington, and for the ensuing 24 hours meandered our way several times across the county. Teams usually locate between 135 and 145 species, but I believe on a good day 150 is possible. Incidentally, on these ‘Big Days’ birds that are only heard also count, which is why teams continue

MICHAEL RUNTZ Nature’s Way searching after sunset. Marsh birds, owls and goatsuckers (Whip-poorwills and Common Nighthawks) are vocally active at night. After combing the west side, Geof and I headed for the southeastern corner of the county, an excellent birding area, which is why the banding station is situated there. On our way we heard and saw a Northern Mockingbird, a very good sighting. In Travers woods we encountered swarms of warblers gobbling down midges as the sun sunk low. Bay-breasted and Tennessee warblers were present in the dozens. We worked our way to the point’s lighthouse. Just as the light began to fade, we spotted a Glaucous Gull sitting on a distant shoal: a second good sighting, even better than the mockingbird. By midnight we had tallied 115 species. An Eastern Screech-Owl had replied at dusk, but no other owls responded to my calls for the rest of the night. Then at 4 a.m, amidst a cacoph-

Bay-breasted Warblers were one of the commonest warblers encountered on the ‘Big Day’. ony of Eastern Whip-poor-will calls, we heard the unique song of a Chuck-will’s-widow! Like whip-poor-wills, Chuckwill’s-widows sing their name. Decades ago I encountered that south-

ern species in Rondeau, so I was extremely excited to hear one sing in the County. We drove a side road and got close enough for Geof to record its song on an iPod.

The Arnprior Legion and the Knights of Columbus donated half the proceeds from their Euchre Tournament to Partners in Caring. Money donated to Partners in Caring is used towards the purchase of much needed medical equipment. The government does not fund the purchase of new equipment. Accepting the cheque, (from left to right), Emily Drew RPN, Laurie Hebert RN (post discharge planner), Cowboy Bob Adkins, Uncle Dan Lynch, and Amanda Cavanagh (physiotherapy assistant).

A Northern Mockingbird was one of the best finds.

MICHAEL RUNTZ

Charged by this encounter, we returned to the point for daybreak. Our list continued to climb and by 3:30 p.m. it held 143 species. The only expected warbler missing was Blackpoll and with exactly one minute to go we spotted a male near the lighthouse. The stiffest competition comes from David Okines, the head bander and his team. We met David and learned his team finished with 143 species. We won the Challenge, but the real winner was PEPtBO for thousands of dollars were raised by the participants. It’s not too late to support the observatory: Google ‘Baillie Birdathon’ and look for my name. I am fine now, but next year’s “fix� just has to be 150!

Mom ready to leave autistic daughter in government’s care Joel Eastwood Toronto Star

News - Linda Murphy arrived in Toronto prepared to leave her daughter in government care. Instead, her unannounced visit to Queen’s Park secured what she had been fighting seven years for — a group home spot for her autistic adult daughter. “I thought it was going to end quite differently. I thought it was going to end more like the Amanda Telford story, or the other people who just had to leave their kids in the hospital,� Murphy said, referring to the Ottawa mother who turned her severely autistic son over to the provincial social services agency a year ago.

ple with a developmental disability are receiving residential services. Another 7,300 people are on the waiting list. “These are always tough situations,� said Ted McMeekin, minister of community and social services, who could not comment on this specific case for privacy reasons. “Our government acknowledges openly that there have not been enough investments in this area, that we need to do more, that we’re trying to do that,� McMeekin said. He criticized the opposition parties for not supporting the budget, which would have increased provincial spending on developmen-

tal services to more than $2 billion by 201617. “It is increasingly typical of the Liberals to point the finger at others and extremely rich of Mr. McMeekin considering the Liberals had seven years to do something for this woman and her daughter and chose to do nothing,� said Jacqui Delaney, a spokeswoman for the Ontario Progressive Conservatives. While the group home spot for Corbett is only funded for 30 days, Murphy said she’s going to keep fighting after that. “I’m going to make it permanent,� she said. “I am determined.�

Murphy, who lives in Arnprior, Ont., was ready to do the same thing. Her 20-year-old daughter, Ashley Corbett, has an IQ of 40 and functions at the level of a 2-year-old, Murphy said. “Physically, my body just can’t take care of her anymore,� Murphy said. “She can go to bed at 10 p.m., but she’s putting around, she sometimes gets out of the room. She knows how to use the stove, but she’s not careful — she could burn the house down if I didn’t turn the stove off at the circuit breaker every night.�

Corbett has been in high school, but will be ineligible to return this fall because she will turn 21. Murphy said her daughter has been on a nearby group home’s wait list for seven years. “I wasn’t getting anywhere — no funding, no programs, nothing,� Murphy said. Housing Corbett in the group home would cost about $400 a day, Murphy said. So on Monday Murphy packed a black case with her daughter’s clothes, toiletries and medication, prepared a binder detailing her needs and routines, and drove to Toronto. If she wasn’t able to secure a group home spot for Corbett after meeting with someone at the ministry, she would take her to the Developmental Services Ontario office across the street from Queen’s Park and leave her in their care. It didn’t come to that. When Murphy showed up unannounced at the Ministry of Community and Social Services offices, she was able to meet with Assistant Deputy Minister Karen Chan and secure the emergency funding. Murphy said she thinks the provincial election may have helped her cause. “They don’t want to be seen badly, especially after the Ford thing on the weekend,� she said, referring to Councillor Doug Ford’s comments that a home for disabled youth in Etobicoke had “ruined the community.� Kathleen Wynne’s Liberal government proposed $810 million over three years in new funding for children and adults with developmental difficulties in the most recent budget, which was not supported by the opposition Progressive Conservatives and NDP.

2014 SPRING HYDRANT FLUSH VALVE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM The Public Works Department in conjunction with the Town’s Spring Hydrant Flush program is conducting a Valve Maintenance Program. The hydrant ush will clean the distribution system by ushing any standing red water. The valve maintenance program is designed to clean and exercise the valves and by doing so will extend their life as well as determine whether the valves are operable. The work is planned for the weeks of May 20th to June 12th, 2014 and will be completed in the shortest period of time possible. This procedure is routine but it may result in some temporary inconveniences such as poor water pressure or “redâ€? water. Do not be alarmed. What you should know: • If coloured water is detected, please open your COLD water taps to clear the system. • The coloured water is not hazardous to health. • This situation is temporary and should not last any longer than two hours at most.

NEW DEVELOPMENT IN ARNPRIOR

Community - There’s a real family atmosphere at Pacific Safety Products in Arnprior. And when one of their own was faced with the harsh reality of suicide, her coworkers quickly rallied, supporting her and raising awareness surrounding the troubling topic. Included in that support was partnering with Breaking the Silence, a Pembroke-based chapter of the suicide awareness organization. PSP bought more than 100 t-shirts and have decided to have an awareness day once a week and wear their shirts. “This amazing company has truly touched my heart with their support of Breaking the Silence,” said group co-founder Annie Fudge. “It all came about because one of their own lost her son to suicide. Instead of being hush-hush, the company has stood behind one of their own. Fudge’s recent visit to PSP was an emotional one. “I was completely moved to tears today when I entered the facility. Words truly cannot express how honoured and proud I was. PSP to me is not a company – it’s a family – a family who stands beside each other, who support each other, who loves each other. Talking about suicide and mental illness is the first step in preventing more of the tragedies, says Fudge. Upcoming Breaking the Silence events include a June 27 fundraising concert at the Marina Ampitheatre in Pembroke and the second annual Light the Night event at the Waterfront Chapel in Pembroke on Sept. 10, World Suicide Awareness Day. For more, see BreakingtheSilencePembroke on Facebook.

Provincial funding announcement ‘good news’ for local students Lifestyle - This year’s Grants for Student Needs (GSN) could help the local public school students on several fronts, says the Renfrew County District School Board. GSN is the funding provided by the Ministry of Education that goes to school boards to cover core costs of educating student needs. The ministry recently announced the latest GSNs and while actual dollar figures have not been announced yet there were several “good-news stories” to come out of the ministry’s communication that will directly affect Renfrew County students, says the board in a news release. Total GSN funding for the 2014-2015 school year is projected to increase by 3.1 per cent over 2013-2014 to $22.53 billion, in part, due to the full implementation of Full Day Kindergarten. The Renfrew County District School Board will complete the phase-in of full-day kindergarten this September when it will be offered in all of its elementary schools. Through the GSN announcement, the ministry promises to address the historical special education funding inadequacy affecting public schools dating back to the 1990s. The ministry says the new High Needs Amount Allocation of the Special Education Grant will improve the discrepancies among boards. “While this funding is to be brought in gradually, it is reassuring to know the Renfrew County District School Board will benefit from a more equitably distributed special education grant,” said RCDSB chairperson David Kaiser. Annual funding earmarked for providing Mental Health Leaders to school boards is being moved into the GSN. This $8.76 million in funding supports the salary and benefits costs of one Mental Health Leader in each school board. Funding will be allocated through a separate component of the Learning Opportunities Grant. “This funding will ensure the RCDSB can

Arnprior student helps new trustee News – Madawaska Valley District High School student Theresa Paplinskie was having issues with her presentation leading up to her campaign speech during the May 1 Renfrew County public school board s tudent trustee election. When mentioned the reigning 2014 Miss Teen Ontario East should be used to speaking in front of people (like the 300 people, judges and fellow contestants packed in to the Renfrew Recreation Centre during the April 6 Miss Teen Ontario pageant), Paplinskie responded a touch nervously, “yeah, but this is a different atmosphere.” But thanks to the help of fellow candidate, Arnprior District High School’s Oliver Jacob, Paplinskie’s presentation went off without a hitch and shortly after the election she was named the 2014-2015 RCDSB student trustee. Paplinskie had stiff competition during the election from candidates like Jacob, who currently sits on the Ministry’s (of Education) Student Advisory Committee, Fellowes High School’s Burgundy Morgan and Opeongo High School’s Patrick Weller. All four candidates are leaders in their schools and contributors to their communities.

JAKE DAVIES

Renfrew County public school board chairperson David Kaiser is pleased with the provincial commitment to all-day Kindergarten and the Mental Health Leader program in the schools. continue to have a Mental Health Leader available to its students and schools across the county,” said Kaiser. “This is a tremendous step forward to ensure the well-being of our students.” The MOE is making a significant new investment of $1.25 billion in School Condition Improvement funding over the next three years, with $250 million to be allocated in 20142015. “While the exact amount the RCDSB will receive for its school capital projects has yet to be determined, it is noteworthy this represents the largest government investment in school renewal since the Good Places to Learn Renewal Program in the mid-2000s,” said Kaiser. “The RCDSB’s Character Education committee is on the right path in addressing the need to create healthy, safer schools and to support the mental and physical health of our students,” Kaiser said.

Arts - Two Rivers Musical Productions cast and crew were hard at work on the stage during rehearsals for My Fair Lady on May 24. The musical follows the character of Eliza Doolitle, played by Ciara Magoon of Braeside. Doolittle is a “Cockney” flower

girl who finds herself taking speech lessons from phoneticist Henry Higgins, played by Braeside’s Andrew Jensen, so she may pass as a lady. Rounding out the main characters are Pakenham’s James Hrkach as a perfect Alfred P. Doolittle, an opportunist who loves his drink and the father of Eliza; Mrs. Pearce the housekeeper, played by Bernadette Miller of Braeside; and Arnprior’s

Dave Anthony as Colonel Pickering, who a linguist who wagers that Higgins cannot transform Eliza’s speech and volunteers to pay for her lessons. My Fair Lady runs from June 4 to 7 at the Arnprior District High School, beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and children. Parking is free.

Community – Arnprior’s Prior Players have selected their fall production piece - Hilda’s Yard by noted Canadian author Norm Foster. The play is a charming, funny slice of life from the 1950s, say officials. “It will have Arnprior audiences chuckling and laughing from beginning to end,” said an event press release. “We require a cast of three women and three men ages mid-50s to mid30s.” Auditions will be held at the Arnprior Public Library on Saturday, June 14, from 1-3 p.m, and Monday and Thursdays (June 16 and 19) from 6.30-8 p.m. Rehearsals will begin early September.

Capital City Speedway driver dies during race News – A driver has died after collapsing behind the wheel of his racing car at the Capital City Speedway May 21. The Ottawa Paramedic Service was called to the Speedway near the West Carleton-Stittsville border at 10:45 p.m. Wesley Wallin of the Ottawa area died in hospital after his racing car went out of control and hit a concrete wall.

It appeared he had suffered some sort of medical distress, probably a heart attack, prior to the crash. Paramedics treated the driver who they report had no pulse and was not breathing when they arrived. First aid paramedics on site at the Capital City Speedway had started CPR and Ottawa Fire Services responded and delivered two shocks from their defibrillator.

News – Despite concerns expressed by some residents, the hours have been cut at the Burnstown post office. The post office hours are now Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 to 11:45 a.m. and 3:15 to 5:30 p.m. On Wednesdays, the hours are the same except the post office is open a half-hour later, closing at 6 p.m. The post office is no longer open Saturdays. Other rural post offices, including Douglas and Calabogie, have also seen their hours cut.

Lifestyle - Ctenocephalides felis or cat ea! Although there are over 2,000 species of eas, the most common is the cat ea and is found on both cats and dogs. Fleas are responsible for a variety of problems from simple itching and infection to allergic skin reactions and tapeworm. The females always lay their eggs on your dog or cat. Once on your pet, the adult eas feed vigorously but digest only a small percentage of ingested blood. The remaining ingested blood is excreted back onto your pet in the form of black fecal matter commonly known as ea dirt (looks like black pepper). Feeding stimulates egg laying while on your pet and in just 30 days 10 eas can multiply into 250,000 eas. The small white eggs do not adhere to skin or hair but fall freely off your pet to contaminate bedding, ooring, carpeting, dog beds, even your vehicle if the pet has been transported in it during the infestation. The adult ea represents only a small percentage of the infestation present in your home. The vast majority of the ea population is actually either in the egg, larval or pupal stage, which cannot be seen. Effective elimination of eas requires control at all levels of the life cycle.

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP

If you have a ea infestation you must treat both your pets and your home. Flea infestation is a vicious cycle. Before you can effectively control and eradicate the eas, you must understand a little about their life cycle. In just 15 days the ea life cycle is completed. In 30 days 10 eas can multiply into 250,000 eas. If just one pet in a multiple pet home has eas, then they could all have eas. To get rid of the eas for good, you have to kill both the adult ea and their offspring. The adult ea – Is the biting, reproducing and most annoying stage. The adult ea is the most visible and feeds on the blood of your pet(s). The average female ea lays 25 eggs per day up to 2,000 eggs in her lifetime Adult eas, as I stated earlier, can cause health problems ranging from tapeworm, skin

disorders, infections and allergies. Flea eggs - Fall from your pet(s) into your home and the environment. Fleas lay all of their eggs on your pet(s). These eggs are barely visible to the human eye. The eggs do not stay on your pet(s) but fall off onto you bedding, ooring, carpeting, etc. Under optimal conditions (hot, humid weather), ea eggs can develop into the larval stage within 10 days. Flea Larvae – The wormlike larvae settle deep within carpet ďŹ bres, in and under furniture. Any effective treatment must control ea larvae since they are the largest percentage of any infestation. The larvae have long spines on each segment, which allows them to cling to carpet ďŹ bre and furniture making it difďŹ cult to simply vacuum them up. Flea Pupae – Shielded by a cocoon, no treatment can control the ea pupae. The ea pupae are concealed in the cocoon made of carpet ďŹ bres and other debris found in your home. Hungry adult eas emerge from the pupae in as little as eight days.

Lifestyle - The Arnprior and District Humane Society, fresh off a successful fundraising yard sale, is gearing up for one of its biggest events, the annual Walk-a-thon. The fundraiser will be held on Sunday, June 8 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at scenic Robert Simpson Park, Society ofďŹ cials urged the public to join them for an afternoon of dog walking.

Arnprior District HS girls win Renfrew County soccer title Sports - The Arnprior District High School senior girls’ soccer team capped off an undefeated season May 22 with three playoff game victories to capture the Upper Ottawa Valley Championship at Riverside Park in Pembroke. In the quarter final, the Redmen ladies started off slowly against the Madawaska Wolves but rounded into form nicely with a 3-0 win. Goal scorers were Jamie Burnett, Emily Schnob and Sam Caesar. In the semi-final the girls needed all but one minute of double overtime to finally score a 1-0 win over General Panet. The girls totally dominated play but could not beat the General Panet goalkeeper until Jamie Burnett provided the game-winning heroics. In the championship game, the Redmen ladies faced a tough and determined Mackenzie Mustang team. However, strong defence and multiple offensive chances

finally paid off. Kelsey Hill scored on a free kick to notch the lone goal in the game. The girls were to travel to Cornwall Tuesday (after press deadline) for the Eastern Ontario (EOSSAA) championship tournament, hosted by Holy Trinity, in order to try and win a berth at the provincial championship (OFSAA). The ADHS senior boys team dropped a 3-1 contest to Mackenzie in their only playoff game. The boys finished the regular season with a 4-3 record with a 3-0 win over Opeongo on their home field May 20. Keenan Laughlin, Dyan Kasaboski and Boden Zverdvich scored for the Redmen. In the girls final regular season game, Jamie Burnett had the goal in a 1-0 ADHS win over Opeongo. The victory gave the Redmen a 5-0-1 record and first place in the division.

Events – Arnprior Canadian Tire will hold its sixth annual Jumpstart Day celebration and fundraiser in its parking lot this Saturday, May 31. This day-long event at 245 Daniel St. South is in celebration of the Jumpstart Red Ball campaign that May encourages customers throughout May to donate $2 in exchange for a Red Ball – a national symbol for child’s play. One hundred per cent of every donation made in the community stays in the community in which it was made to help youth afford to participate in sports and recreation activities. On Jumpstart Day, customers can participate in special events and activities at the Arnprior and other participating Canadian Tire stores across the country. At the Arnprior store, customers will have an opportunity to participate in a fun day including a barbecue and activities for the whole family. All money raised will be donated to Jumpstart, helping the one in three Canadian families that

cannot afford to enrol their kids in organized sport “because no kid should be left on the sidelines.� A local committee will ensure to money is put to best use in this area. Thanks to the generous support of donors, Jumpstart has helped more than 730,000 kids over the past nine years, by removing financial barriers that prevent them from participating in organized sport, including the costs of equipment, registration and/or transportation. Canadian Tire management and employees invite the Arnprior community to get involved and “help make a difference in the lives of local kids.� “Together we can help all kids play� is the theme of the campaign. This year Jumpstart Day will be held on May 31st and is a day of fun activities to raise funds and awareness for kids in your local community who do not have the opportunity to participate in organized sports and physical activity.

Minor hockey forced to levy a surcharge Lack of service agreement dings township players an additional fee of $125 Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

News – After some 18 months of speculation, rumour and near hysteria in the Arnprior Minor Hockey Association (AMHA) community, the board has finally announced how much it will cost to play. Because township and town councils are at an impasse over service agreements having to do with programs at the Nick Smith Centre – including hockey, figure skating and swimming – it’s been known that McNab-Braeside residents will pay more. The question has always been how much more. An extra $125. That is how much township kids will pay on top of the $470 registration fee. For those selected to Packer teams, another $170 will be charged; down from last year’s $200. The last change will see teams, not the association, decide whether or not to attend the Silver Stick Tournament (and pay its entry fee). Trevor Reid, a member of the AMHA board of directors, is pleased all information has been provided to the group – including the nine per cent increase in ice rental fees - so that it could set the cost of registration. Although some parents of the association’s 200 or so players were anxious to hear how much extra would be charged, Reid said the association was right not to muse aloud. “We could have speculated and guessed, but that wouldn’t have been

right,” Reid said. “I think this is a good news thing. Yes, it’s been lots of work and heavy discussions, but it is worth the wait.” The $470 fee works out to $13 per hour, at 36 hours of guaranteed ice time; or $16.50 an hour for Packer players. It’s a far cry from township Mayor Mary Campbell’s pledge to offer recreational activities at $2 per hour. But it is an amount Reid said is “pretty reasonable” in order to play Canada’s game. Costs are rising all around the association. Without the township paying from its general coffers, its residents are dinged with the 38 per cent surcharge. The ice rental contract is up, so are association funds paid to umbrella group Hockey Eastern Ontario. HOLDING THE LINE

Still, Reid said the association works at keeping costs low and has held the line this time around. “The $125 surcharge is out of our control. We are trying to respect pocketbooks,” Reid said. “We are very happy to say we are not increasing the fees for in-town residents in any way.” Asked about township parents who haven’t followed the service agreements controversy, and will simply resent in-town parents paying less, Reid hopes that won’t be the case. He doesn’t know of any parents who aren’t aware of why the surcharge must be in place. McNab-Braeside mayoral candi-

About one-third of the Arnprior Minor Hockey Association’s budget comes from Nevada lottery tickets sold at Macs. AMHA president Matt Naismith thanks store manager Tracy Megris for supporting young players, including from back left, Dylan Beaubien, Keaton Beale, Emily Naismith, Wyatt Muldoon, Jake Timmons and Kara Desarmia. date and current township councillor Aldene Styles said the surcharge is lower than expected. However, she understands constituents are “frustrated” with the lack of an agreement and hopes resentments don’t build. “There’s a whole other can of

worms that can be opened up,” Styles said. “I want to have an amicable agreement between our two municipalities so our residents aren’t charged an extra $125 to participate in Nick Smith activities.” Fees are one portion of the cost.

Nevada lottery tickets, available at both Macs locations in town, make up a big portion. Fundraising events such as the trivia night, dance night, and home tournaments also raise funds. Expect to see more fundraising events going forward.

42-year-old to vote for the first time June 12 Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

In most Canadian municipal, provincial or federal elections, usually 40 per cent of eligible voters don’t cast a ballot. To Anita Law, who lives in the Upper Ottawa Valley but grew up in England and the Cayman Islands, that is practically criminal. She will excitedly cast her ballot for the candidate of her choice in the June 12 provincial election. The Renfrew resident won’t say for whom she’ll vote, but gladly talks about her new opportunity. “My opinion counts,” says Law, who became a Canadian citizen in May 2012. “I’m 42 years old and my opinion has never counted, electorally-speaking.” Law grew up hearing her mother say her own mother and grandmother stress the importance of voting because women died for that right. Law knows that didn’t happen in Canada, but the importance of voting is underlined, she says, when she hears girls are kidnapped in Nigeria because they want an education or that people die in other countries because they dare go to the polls. “We have the tendency of taking the privilege of voting for granted because there’s no real threat of it being taken away,” says Law. She says new Canadian citizens, especially those who have come from repressive parts of the world, embrace the chance to vote. Besides, the system doesn’t work unless we all participate, says Law. “Evil flourishes when good men do nothing. If you don’t participate, you can’t complain. You can’t have 40 per cent going out and voting for the other 60 per cent. It doesn’t work.” As a youngster, Law moved from the United Kingdom to the Cayman Islands where her dad took a banking job. She later returned to the UK as a university student, but because she didn’t have a permanent address she wasn’t allowed to vote. And back in the Caymans, technical quirks prevented her from voting, even though her brother and parents could. As a university student in 1997, she would have loved to have cast a vote as Tony Blair burst into power. “There was this huge, big change from the Conservative party to the Labour Party, which hadn’t happened in decades, so I was interested and involved,” recalls Law. “I was frustrated and disillusioned (that I couldn’t vote).”

Vote at home option available News - Provincial election advance poll locations will open this Saturday, May 31 and continue to Thursday, June 5. The polls will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Locations in the south end of the riding include the Arnprior Shopping Centre, Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church in Renfrew and the Renfrew satellite office in the former George Jackson Toyota dealership building in Renfrew. Returning officer Lewis MacDonald reminds voters with mobility problems that they can request an election official visit to let them vote at home. The special ballot option is one

of several initiatives to ensure everyone can vote, he explains. In that vein, special ballot voting continues at the riding returning offices in Pembroke and Renfrew daily until Wednesday, June 11 at 6 p.m. All Ontarians on the voters list should have received or will receive a Notice of Registration card in the mail in the next week. The voters card will list the voting location for election day, plus the dates, times and places of the advance voting locations. MacDonald reminds people to bring their Notice of Registration Card with them when they go to vote.

ANNOUNCEMENT

At 42, Anita Law of Renfrew is voting for the very first time. Law suggests there should be fewer obstacles en route to the ballot box. In fact, she says voting should be required, as it is in Australia where non-voters are fined. In Law’s household, she has told her daughter Zoey it’s important to stand up and ask questions that affect your own well-being. “She’s only seven, but she probably understands more about the electoral process and why it’s important than most second graders,” says Law. Law, who has a journalism degree and works as community relations manager at ChartwellQuail Creek Retirement Residence, says: “I’ve always been a news junkie and followed different electoral campaigns, and always played a part by saying to friends and family: Have you voted? “And if they say they’re not going to, I have tried to convince them that it is their responsibility to vote.” Just as Law will gladly vote for the very first time.

Legion seeks fundraising ideas to repair building JANET TOBIO Arnprior Legion

Community – It’s here. I just knew spring would come, and it’s June! Summer time events are being planned at the Arnprior Legion. Dinners once a month when there’s entertainment in the lounge is a big request. So hopefully everyone will support the volunteers who spend their Saturdays making a great dinner. Come out in the afternoon for the entertainment, maybe a little singing and dancing, and finish it off with a nice meal. More details to follow. They’re still in the process of getting the last of the damage looked after from the winter sewer back-up, so that’s ongoing. When you get a little cranky with the bumps in the driveway, have a look at the new gravel area at the back of the building and remember the sewer repairs used up the savings that were for the paving of the parking lot. Good thing they had that set aside or they’d have been closed. Rentals and entertainment, bingo and euchre are all busy as usual.

The latest challenge is to plan a super duper fundraiser. Yes, it’s an oooold building and things keep breaking down. This past year has been a dandy. No little maintenance problems - all big expensive repairs or replacements. This one must be repaired before hot weather arrives. We must be prepared. They are looking for a good weekend that won’t interfere with other organizations, and that in Arnprior is a challenge in itself. What a busy town! They need some suggestions for a big fundraiser. What would you like to see, hear or do? They want to please as many people as possible and get everyone in the area to take part. Call the Legion leave your name and number and someone will get back to you for your ideas. Don’t be shy tell them what you like – 613623-4722. Check the What’s Happening page for all that’s happening at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 174 on Daniel Street in Arnprior.

News – The federal government has issued a call for proposals through the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP). “One of the main ways for seniors to live healthy retirements is to remain active, engaged and participate in activities,� said Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. “Through supporting organizations and programs which seeks to promote activities for seniors, the government is helping contribute to their healthy retirement. We have already seen the results of these investments in our community at Greater Madawaska’s Barnet Cottage, and I look forward to seeing programs

accepted for funding in this cycle.� The NHSP supports projects that will help Canadian seniors use their leadership abilities, skills and experience to continue to make a difference in their communities. NHSP funding is targeted to community-based projects and pilot projects that must address one or more of the program’s five objectives: volunteering, mentoring, expanding awareness of elder abuse, social participation and capital assistance. The application deadline for the funding is July 4. To find out more about the program and how to apply for funding, visit www.cherylgallant. com and click on the ‘New Horizons for Seniors’ button.

Mary has a desperate wish to wear a slip Lifestyle - My sister Audrey said you had to be a certain age before you were old enough to wear a slip. I could never understand the reasoning behind that rule. Surely, if you could see your underpinnings through your dress, you needed a

slip! And I told her so too. The winter clothes had been packed away, and the summer wear was out. “Well,” Audrey explained, “children your age don’t wear sheer dresses, and so you don’t need a slip.”

I mentally pictured my scant summer wardrobe. The only dresses I owned were two Dan River Cottons I wore to church or for very special occasions. Whereas Audrey, had at least three dresses, one of a lacy fabric that had come in the handme-down box from Aunt Lizzie, and one Mother had made from an organza piece of material that was on sale at Walker’s Store in Renfrew. Another dress, which she often wore to the Northcote School, was a light material, and if she stood in a doorway, or the sun caught it just the right way, without a slip you would certainly see her underpinnings. She definitely needed a slip for all three of them. But how I longed for a slip! Now, part of it, I knew, was because there was a saying back in those days, that if a girl’s slip was showing, you quietly went up to her and said, “It’s snowing down south,” and she immediately went and did something about her slip peeking beneath her hemline. I was very impressed when I heard someone say that to another girl in the schoolyard. That, to me was a sure sign of growing up. How I longed for a slip. The best thing to do was to talk it over with Mother. She said Audrey was right, that you needed a slip if you were wearing something that could show your underpinnings ... but she also said it had nothing to do with how old you were. That was wonderful news to me. And I set out trying to

MARY COOK Memories make a bargain with Mother. If I did extra chores on Saturday, washed my underwear out every night without being asked, and promised to try to have only pleasant thoughts when it came to bad Marguirite, would Mother consider letting me have a slip? The last promise I knew, would be the hardest to keep! Mother said to let her think about it. That meant no more discussion on the subject until she brought it up. Like so many times when I longed for something that was out of my reach, I couldn’t get owning a slip out of my mind. Like the little wood pencil box my friend Joyce had ... with a green palm tree painted on the outside, and a lid that slid open by using your thumbnail, and it swivelled to show a place for pencils, and even a little dent for your art gum. Or the short white stockings bad Marguirite wore to school with a tiny row of lace around the cuffs. Wanting the pencil box or the white stockings would forever remain a dream. But owning my first slip, I thought, wasn’t being that unreasonable. And then one morning I came down from our bedroom and Mother was, as usual, standing at the Findlay Oval stirring the porridge in the big white pot.

She snapped the ladle against the side of the pot and put it on a saucer on the reservoir, and told me to go to her bedroom and bring out what was there. The bed was neatly made with the Log Cabin quilt pulled up over the pillows (bedspreads were unheard of in our house), and there was something folded in the centre of the bed. I picked it up, and it was a slip! A real slip! I tore to the kitchen like someone possessed and asked Mother if it was for me. “Well, it’s too short for Audrey, and I doubt your brothers would be wanting to wear it,” Mother said. I was already dressed for school, but there was no way another day was going to pass without my wearing a slip. I wasn’t in a dress, but had on a cotton skirt made out of one of Uncle Jack’s dress shirts, and a blouse that once belonged to Audrey. I tore upstairs and in jig time came down with the slip on next to my bare skin and underpants, and with the blouse and skirt back on. Mother had made it at night, when we children were in bed, and the steady clack-clack of the old Singer sewing machine could be heard downstairs almost every night, but I never knew what creation Mother was working on. And here, last night, she had sewn me my first slip. It was made of white broadcloth, a luxury to be sure. It was a few inches shorter than my skirt, and had wide

straps, not like Audrey’s slip which had little slides you could move up and down to shorten or length it. But I was so thrilled. I could hardly wait to get to the Northcote Side Road where my friend Velma would be waiting for me to walk to school, and tell her what I had on under my skirt. I also told Joyce, and we went behind the outhouse at recess so that I could lift my skirt and show them my new slip. I would love to have let the whole school know ... the girls at least, but, of course, I wouldn’t dare be that forward. No, I just had to live with keeping it to myself and my two best friends. Of course, I couldn’t wear it under my slacks, or shorts, and as it got warmer, it stuck to my skin, so I started only wearing it to church. It didn’t take long for the novelty of owning a slip to wear off. And it stuck to my dress or my skirt. To be honest it became quite a nuisance. And besides, since Mother had made it so much shorter than my skirts or dresses, not one soul sidled up to me and said, “Mary, it’s snowing down south.” So, if no one knew I was even wearing as slip, what was the point of having one on?

McNab Days to celebrate community, heritage, culture and recreation Heather Lang McNab Days committee

Events - McNab Days is an annual week-long festival of events held across McNab-Braeside to celebrate all that is wonderful about the township - its charming communities, its proud heritage and culture, and its beautiful natural landscape and all the recreational opportunities that this affords. This year’s week-long festival is anchored, once again, by the popular Scottish Festival (which kicks off the festivities on Sunday, June 22 at the Waba Cottage Museum and Gardens in White Lake) and the Riverdrive Festival (Saturday, June 28, at Red Pine Bay and the beach at Braeside). Scottish Festival: Celebrating culture and heritage Once again, organizers of the daylong event are planning a full slate of Celtic-oriented activities on June 22. Children’s Celtic activities and minigames run all day, starting at 9 a.m. After an old-fashioned breakfast of homemade beans and bacon butty (sponsored by the McNab and District Celtic Heritage Society), you can wander the grounds and take in the festivities. Following an Irish church service at 10 a.m. is the kirking of the tartan. In addition to music by the ever-popular local favourite Kyle Felhaver and friends, John Yakabuski will be on hand to sing the national anthem as part of the opening ceremonies. Other entertainment on tap for the day includes Scottish and Irish dancers, a pipe tattoo, massed bands,

HEATHER LANG/SUBMITTED

A massed bands performance was one of the highlights of last year’s Scottish Festival at the Waba Cottage Museum and Gardens. heavyweight Highland games demonstration, an archery demonstration and the second-annual Tartan Tug. New this year is a friendly competition of “which burger is better?� Visitors get to decide between the Highland or steakhouse burger. Organizers Rose Ann and Boyd MacLaren indicate there will be a silent auction, clan tents and vendors to round out the festival experience.

It all starts at 9 a.m. Admission is by donation for adults; children get in free. For information on the Scottish Festival, contact co-chairs Boyd and Rose Ann MacLaren at boyd.rose@ gmail.com. RIVERDRIVE FESTIVAL

Riverdrive, the second signature

event of McNab Days, features music by local musicians, historical and environmental displays, recreational demonstrations and opportunities (stay tuned), the famous dock-diving dogs from Avalon Ranch (a DockDogs-sanctioned K9 facility), and river boat tours. This year’s heritage displays and activities will be clustered in one section of Red Pine Bay Park and

Braeside Beach - creating a focus for displays, demonstrations and entertainment. New this year for the silent auction is a garden shed erection - a sure attention-getter. To date, sponsors include RONA Arnprior, Valley Truss, Valley Trim and Jim Fraser Towing. The Woodworkers of McNabBraeside will be preparing the component parts for erection on the site, starting at 8 a.m. The completed garden shed will be offered in the silent auction, along with many practical items for the home or cottage. For more information on this aspect of Riverdrive, contact Dan Smith at 613-623-0983 or dan.smith@sympatico.ca. “McNab-Braeside township is blessed with many magnificent waterways, including a beautiful stretch of the Ottawa River above Arnprior,� says festival chair John Brady (john. brady3@bell.net). Riverdrive celebrates our long and colourful history with the Ottawa River, as well as our current and future enjoyment.� Admission to the Riverdrive Festival is by donation for adults; children get in free. TARTAN RUN/WALK

This year’s annual Tartan Run/ Walk - a kick-off event for Riverdrive on June 28 - features new and exciting elements. See HOUSE AND GARDEN Page 44

The proposed garden shed.

House and garden tour, scotch tasting among activities Continued from Page 43

Participants run or walk five kilometres along the beautiful Ottawa River (registration is 8 a.m.; walkers start at 8:45 a.m.; runners at 9 a.m.). Over the 5-km course, participants will be met with a series of challenges, mimicking chores or tasks typical for many area settlers: think bale-throwing, water-carrying, mail delivery, carrying kindling. At the end, returning runners and walkers will be greeted by a piper and have to toss a special McNab coin that will be provided into the piper’s hat - a different take on “pay the piper” indeed! Chores and tasks will be age-appropriate.

HEATHER LANG/SUBMITTED

The woodworkers of McNab-Braeside prepare parts for a garden shed to be offered in the silent auction at the Riverdrive Festival.

Everyone receives a bib, commemorative tartan sash and breakfast by the shore. And, maybe even an award. Cost is $10 each or $25 for families. You can sign up at the Nick Smith Centre, McNab-Braeside Township office or Robbins general store in Braeside. Contact Andy Kalnins at flatrapids@gmail.com for more information.

Burnstown, plus the church, as well as the strawberry social, all for a $25 ticket. Proceeds will be used to help keep the village’s quaint little church open. Contact Irene Robillard at 613-4326987 for more information.

HERITAGE HOUSE AND GARDEN TOUR

The second annual, ever-popular Scotch Tasting evening, sponsored by Neat Café in Burnstown, takes place on July 12, starting at 7:30 p.m. You can get your tickets at the café or from Boyd and Rose Ann MacLaren (613-623-3614; boyd.rose@ gmail.com).

The Burnstown United Church is holding a Heritage House and Garden Tour on June 28 as well. Running from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., the tour will get you into six locations in and around

Local woman to bring the first ‘Death Café’ to this area News – People are aware of the fact that they will, at some point, die. Every living thing must eventually cease living. Yet the topic of death can invoke terror into the hearts of mortal beings who would rather deny it than even think about talking about it. But what happens when you gather with other mortals and share tea or coffee and cake and the purpose of the gathering is to openly talk about one of the last taboos, death. To be clear, this is not a bereavement support group or a space for grief counselling or promotion of any type of service or business. The Death Café planned for Burnstown simply offers an accessible, respectful and confidential space with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action. It is a non-profit event with the sole purpose being an increase in awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their finite lives. Julie Keon, a funeral Life Cycle Celebrant from Cobden, has organized the Burnstown

event to bring the concept to her own community. “The Death Cafe gives people a safe, comfortable place to talk about the things that are inevitable,” says Keon. “We all have to face it someday whether it is our own death or a loved one’s death.” Death Cafe is based on the ideas of Bernard Crettaz, a Swiss sociologist and anthropologist, who set up Cafes Mortels. The Death Café idea was brought to the U.K. by Jon Underwood from Switzerland in 2010 and has slowly migrated across Europe and into North America. The ‘social franchise’, according to the movement’s website www.deathcafe.com, is worldwide, with more than 400 Death Cafes serving more than 3,000 participants in Europe, North America and Australia. Death Cafe is a volunteer organization with no paid staff. So what happens at a Death Café? “Attendees are welcomed and then encouraged to find a seat around one of several tables. Each table seats 4-6 people and after some in-

troductions and the serving of cake and tea/ coffee conversation begins about end-of-life topics,” explains Keon. There isn’t a set list of topics to discuss, but conversation generally flows quite easily as participants share their insights, fears, thoughts about anything related to their inevitable death. Generally, in the end, participants leave feeling uplifted and determined to squeeze as much out of their life while they still can. “Ironically, by talking about the inevitable, we become more aware of how truly precious our time of living is and we become motivated to surrender to living fully rather than living fearfully,” notes Keon. Everyone is welcome to attend Renfrew County’s first Death Café on Tuesday, June 24 from 7-9 p.m. in the back room of Neat Café at 1715 Calabogie Rd. in Burnstown. A suggested donation of $5 is appreciated to help cover costs of space and refreshments. Contact Keon at 613-6469912 or by email at julie@juliekeon.com should you have any questions.

Between May 1st and September 30th each year there are limitations on who can water and at what time. Odd number houses may water on odd calendar days and even numbered houses may water on even numbered days. Watering may occur between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. each day and from only one connection. Midday is the hottest time of the day and the water is more likely to be wasted through evaporation when watering at this time.

Madawaska welcomes golfers to another season Sports - After what was assuredly the longest winter in recorded history, Ottawa Valley golfers are ready to start swinging their clubs in earnest again and the Madawaska Golf Club is ready to host them. The Madawaska team has been hard at work on the course and in the clubhouse getting ready for the 2014 golf season. Course superintendent Martyn Munro has both the 5,636yard, par-70 Twisted Pines and the 3,251-yard, par-61 Sumac Grove in tip-top shape while making several, noticeable improvements to the two courses. Several trees interfering with some shot options on the mature course have been removed – most noticeably, a large weeping willow on the 184-yard par-3, 16th hole. With the removal of that tree, the right side of the green is opened up and available from the tee. Work continues on the 331-yard par-4, third hole where several smaller trees to the left of the green have been removed and the 186-yard par-3, seventh hole where the lefthand pond has been extended. Not only does the larger pond provide a bit more of a challenge to golfers, it increases the course’s water supply helping with irrigation. Renovations have been done to the clubhouse inside, but the outside, covered patio still boasts a beautiful view of the 18th green. The Madawaska Golf Club welcomes Level III Master Teaching Professional Steven Skrypnyk to the family. Skrypnyk has spent 20 years in the industry. The Ottawa native is a member of the United States Teaching Federation, USPGA, Titleist Performance Institute and the USGA. From 1994 to 1998 he taught and played in mini tours and at PGA events in the southern United States. In 1999 Skrypnyk established a dedicated golf school and training facility located in central Florida. From 1999 to 2013, he worked in partnership with the USGA and FSGA to develop innovative programs for first-time golfers as well as players at NCAA and professional levels. “Every golfer ultimately needs a swing they can take to the course,” Skrypnyk said. “Practice alone won’t achieve that.” Skrypnyk takes an all-encompassing approach to the game by assessing the individual’s goals, physical limits and tendencies and builds from there. Instruction sessions address a host of factors simultaneously including some you might not think about. “Ninety per cent of golf is mental, it’s true,” he said. “In 2009 I established a mental coaching program made affordable to the general public (offered at Madawaska).

You don’t have to be a tour professional to benefit from a mental coaching session.” And because Skrypnyk knows how important the mental aspect of the game is, he’s happy to be bringing his talents to the Madawaska Golf Club. “The ownership here at Madawaska is very accommodating to golfers wishing to improve their games in a relaxed environment,” he said. “It’s really is a perfect venue for learning golf.” The family-owned and operated golf club offers something for everyone and every level. Ladies’ Night on Wednesdays, Men’s Night on Thursdays (alternating Saturday morning tournaments for both leagues), beginning ladies’ night on Sumac Grove (no membership required) on Tuesdays and a junior league on weekends. Visit the club online at www.madawaskagolf.com, download the Madawaska Golf app where you can book tee off times with one click, track your round and season stats and have access to a GPS for both Twisted Pine and Sumac Grove, give the fully equipped pro shop a call at 613-623-3852 or just come visit Arnprior’s home for golf at the end of Keatley Road.

MINIMIZE THE FINAL INCOME TAX LIABILITY OF YOUR ESTATE proper planning, a deceased’s “ Without income tax liability could be significant Did you know that approximately 80% of Canadians will donate to a charity during their lifetime? However, it is estimated that less than 10% will include a gift to a registered charity in their Will.

This is one of a series of several articles intended to build awareness about the impact of legacy giving to Forever CHEO. In addition to the spiritual and community benefits of gifting to a registered charity, naming a registered charity as a beneficiary in your Will can also be an effective way to minimize the final income tax liability

of an estate. Without proper planning, a deceased’s income tax liability could be significant. Various income inclusions at the time of death, such as deemed capital gains and the fair market value of an RRSP can result in a higher than expected estate income tax liability given Canada’s graduated income tax rates.

Gifts to Forever CHEO can include cash legacies, bequests of real or personal property, securities, life insurance proceeds and all or part of the residue of the estate. All of these gifts can potentially generate tax credits available to reduce an estate’s income tax liability. Additionally, the gifting of certain types of capital property to Forever CHEO under the terms of a Will may avoid capital gains but still maximize the tax credits available from such a gift.

If you are interested in finding out about how you can leave a CHEO legacy, please contact Megan Doyle Ray at

megandoyle@cheofoundation.com or (613) 738-3694

Please feel free to contact any member of CHEO’s Legacy Advisory Committee for more information about minimizing the tax liability of your estate and how you can make a lasting impact on the kids and families at CHEO. We would be happy to help you create your Forever CHEO legacy for generations of CHEO patients.

EMERGENCY 24H SERVICE

Shaw Woods goal: to host visits from every area school News - The Shaw Woods Outdoor Education Centre is a work in progress, but the official opening of its Pine Pavilion May 9 was an indication that the centre is off to a healthy start. The volunteer-based SWEOC hosted the official opening of the pavilion that was built late last year by Dan Albert of Coyote Log Homes near Wilno. Standing 20 feet tall, and measuring about 25 by 50 feet, the red and white pine structure is a tasteful, yet iconic introduction to the centre’s more than 600 acres. The property includes about 22 kilometres of marked trails, some with 85 botanical on-site descriptions of local plants, and 125 acres of old growth hardwoods that have never been cut. By the end of this school year, more than 3,500 students will have visited the centre. Also, pilot projects underway call for visits by every student from St. Michael’s Catholic School in Douglas and Eganville and District Public School, with a long-term goal of having visits from every elementary and high school student in Renfrew County. The property – located on Bulger Road near Highway 41 – is also the birthplace of Herb Shaw & Sons owner Herb Shaw, who with son and vice-president Dana, were among invited guests for the outdoor centre’s news conference. The official opening of Pine Pavilion, that serves as a shelter for students and other visitors, was an opportunity to recognize the centre’s numerous supporters.

Contributions, including financial donations of more than $200,000 and many donations of time and products, have helped make the outdoor centre a reality after discussions began in 2010. About 130 acres is now leased by Herb Shaw & Sons (aka Shaw Woods) for a dollar a year to the board of directors of SWEOC, while the centre has access to another 500 acres for trails and educational planning. Recognition was given to bronze, silver and gold sponsors, but no financial details were mentioned. Partners of SWOEC include the Renfrew County Catholic and public school boards, which pay an annual fee to support visits to the outdoor centre. There, the wide variety of guided-tour topics presented by volunteers includes birds, trees, plants, animal habitat, aquatic studies, forestry and survival shelters. The centre has two paid staff positions, including educational co-ordinator Lyndsey Mask. But otherwise the centre operates with a large group of volunteers from across the county, says chairman Wayne Remus. Bronze sponsors recognized on the pavilion’s large wooden banner are Cobden Scotiabank, Meridian Credit Union, Supporters in Memory of Len Petch, Northern Credit Union, and North Algona Wilberforce and Admaston-Bromley townships. Silver sponsors are Ducks Unlimited and Algonquin College, who was represented by Murray Kyte. “We’re very proud to be here today and very proud to be a sponsor and a supporter of the Shaw Woods Outdoor Education Centre,� said Kyte. “Our mission at the college is to trans-

form hopes and dreams into knowledge and skills, leading into lifelong career success for our students. And I think the centre here helps us do that, in particular for three of our programs – forestry technician, our new environmental technician program and our outdoor naturalist program. “Our students come to the facility and the property to learn the necessary knowledge and skills with respect to their chosen careers. And you can’t beat that they say this is their classroom.â€? Gold sponsors are the Renfrew County Stewardship Council, Algonquin Forest Authority, Ontario Trillium Foundation, and Herb Shaw & Sons. The official opening also provided an opportunity for the outdoor centre to market its free programming. “We’ve been very successful running educational programs here for just over a year now,â€? said chairman Remus of the centre that’s open year-round. “Anyone can come here, and hike and learn some things about the outdoors and have their lunch in the Pine Pavilion.â€? Invited guests included MPP John Yakabuski and Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon. Yakabuski called the centre an “absolutely wonderful wayâ€? to preserve and highlight what forestry has meant to Renfrew County residents. “This is a very special day,â€? said Emon, “because it is illustrative of the calm, reasoned and thoughtful approach of the Shaw family ‌ Forestry can be undertaken responsibly and with a view to preserving the legacy of the forest. And this is a prime example, this site, of that kind of forethought.â€?

Bruce Murdoch of Murdoch Electric with some of the more than 50 JIM AUSTIN/SUBMITTED plants he bought at the Waba Cottage Museum plant sale fundraiser A large crowd visits the Waba Cottage Museum for opening day and the plant sale. See Page 53 for more.

Ottawa Valley electrician gives Waba plant sale a big boost Lifestyle – The biannual plant sale at the Waba Cottage Museum and Gardens in White Lake on May 17 was a big success, in part thanks to Bruce Murdoch. The owner of Murdoch Electric bought more than 50 plants at a value of $160 to help support the museum and gardens. The volunteer heritage committee, chaired by Brad McIlquham, ran the sale and was appreciative of all those buying plants, especially

Murdoch. Funds raised from the sale play an important part in improvements to the gardens and museum, they note. The sale also doubled as the opening day for the museum and gardens. The museum will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The facilities contain eight acres of themed gardens on a lakeside setting and five museum buildings of historical note.

On this site, Clan Chief Archibald McNab ruled Scottish settlers with an iron fist for almost 20 years. The log church has a finely crafted new cedar shingled roof and steeple. As well, the front and back gable were rebuilt with white pine boards and beveled batten strips. This work was stoically done in harsh early winter conditions by Duncan Campbell. In mid-August, improvements will be made

to the buildings and grounds for better mobility access. A summer student, Jennifer Stack, has been hired to assist with the gardens. She is taking multimedia studies at Sheridan College in Oakville. The summer student to assist with the museum is Jacqueline McNab. In the autumn, she will be going to England to take her master’s degree in history and archaeology.

THANK YOU This is a heartfelt thank you to everyone. We, the family of Glen Bandy, knew what a kind caring man he was, but we can’t express how comforting it feels to have so many people have such kind words to say about our dad. We appreciate and thank all those who sent flowers, cards, emails, phone calls and donations, attended his funeral and just expressed their sorrow of his passing. We wish to express thanks and appreciation to the staff at Arnprior Hospital and Boyce’s Funeral Home for their care and professionalism. Thanks also to Rev. Julie Morton for her beautiful and sincere service with her personal touch. Life is so precious. We miss you, Dad. RIP



Thank you I sincerely appreciate and thank all my relatives and friends who attended my 80th birthday party at Quail Creek Retirement Home on Sunday April 27, 2014. Thank you as well for all the birthday cards and best wishes. A big thank you goes out to my four children and their spouses who planned and carried out the plans for my 80th birthday party. The highlight of my day was having my grandchildren in attendance and especially my great grandson, Malakai John Mayhew. It was a very happy occasion that I won’t forget. I also want to thank Quail Creek for the use of the sun room. Sincerely, Irene Mayhew CLR527354

to showcase the popular designs of Montreal jeweller Anne Marie Chagnon with a spring trunk show of her latest collection called ‘Luvy’. The gallery has represented the designer since its conception in 2000 and boasts the largest collection of her work outside of Quebec. Babineau has collaborated with Burnstown resident Denyse Campeau, national director of development for Ovarian Cancer Canada, who will be present at the event to answer questions and raise awareness of the foundation’s goals and objectives. The event will also feature new works from the gallery’s stable of artists, as well as introducing some new ones. Sculptor Richard Gill will open his studio where visitors can preview some intriguing current works in progress. It’s a good opportunity to discuss custom work or sign up for a workshop in clay-relief. In the spirit of the event and tradition, Taste Funatic chef Gunnar Guckes of Grassy Bay Getaway, Calabogie returns to create sweet and savory snacks for the occasion. There will also be a draw to win a Chagnon piece as well as a relief sculpture by Gill. Funds raised from last year’s event were used to launch a Walk for Hope for Ovarian Cancer Canada in the fall that took place in the Bennett/Lindsay labyrinth on the gallery’s grounds. Bittersweet donates 10 per cent of Chagnon sales to the cause, Participants of the walk raised almost $8,000. Chagnon’s work is prolific. Every year she conceives and manifests an entirely new collection that merits a celebratory launch. Blessed with a bountiful imagination and trained at the Fine Arts Faculty of the University of Quebec in Montreal, Chagnon shapes

materials instinctively while achieving a playful harmony of form. With the search for authenticity at the heart of her approach she has achieved a signature style unmistakable and recognizable at first glance. Why do the artists support Ovarian Cancer Canada? Because of some alarming statistics for one. Of the 2,600 women diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year in Canada, 70 per cent will not survive five years. With vague symptoms and no early detection test, ovarian cancer is Canada’s most fatal women’s cancer. Tragically, it takes the lives of too many mothers, sisters and daughters each year, devastating families in its wake. A recent survey of Canadian researchers in the field of ovarian cancer concluded that $10 million is needed to make significant strides towards a reliable early screening test, improved treatments and enhancing the quality of life for women living with the disease. Yet a recent study by Charity Intelligence Canada shows that only 2.1 per cent of Canadian donations for cancer are directed at ovarian cancer. Research is the only means to overcoming ovarian cancer, but there is a need to support women living with the disease and their families, as well as providing education and awareness for the general public and health care professionals. The ‘Look of Luv’ will run at Bittersweet Fine Craft and Art, 5 Leckie Lane in Burnstown, on June 7 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The Bennett/Lindsay labyrinth will be open for visitors to explore.
