EMC news – The township planner has recommended McNab-Braeside approve a Miller Group proposal to expand its Braeside quarry and add a temporary asphalt plant so long as several changes are made to the proposal. Renfrew County planner Bruce Howarth delivered his report and recommendations at a special planning advisory committee meeting Monday with council and representatives from provincial ministries of Natural Resources and Environment. “I have recommended some small changes to them, but ultimately the end result is that the Official Plan amendment be approved to permit the asphalt plant. My recommendation is council proceed with making the decision on the planning application,” said Howarth. “The technical studies submitted with the applications demonstrated compliance with provincial standards. “While there may be noise and smell experienced off-site, with the appropriate mitigation measures, they will be within acceptable provincial limits,” he added.

The ash borer, which has been ravaging trees in Ottawa and has been found as close as Fitzroy Harbour, is suspected to be attacking a few trees in downtown Arnprior. If the CFIA confirms that is the case, it could translate into trouble for the entire county. See QUARANTINE, Page 6

In his report, Howarth noted the kind of ribbon development that has occurred near the quarry is now frowned upon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aggregate extraction has occurred on the site since the 1940s. This predates the majority of the dwellings and lots surrounding the property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of the lots were created in two distinct periods of time. Several lots were created in 1978, and the second period of time is from 1984 to 1989, which is when the majority of new lot creation occurred,â&#x20AC;? he said. The two time periods predate the policy statement and the Official Plan, he noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are competing land uses,â&#x20AC;? Howarth told council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have the responsibility of ultimately balancing the competing interests.â&#x20AC;? Council briefly discussed whether another public meeting should be

held for public input on Howarthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report. MNR provincial aggregate resources co-ordinator Gary McLaren told council he and other ministry officials are only a phone call away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very difficult and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of grey area,â&#x20AC;? he said. Council may need to separate technical concerns from land use considerations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you still have questions, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no problem submitting these to the proponent,â&#x20AC;? McLaren added. Council voted to discuss the issue at the next planning meeting, but at least one member feels it is soon time for council to make the decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to bite the bullet and make a decision one way or another,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Aldene Styles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go on and on.â&#x20AC;?

R0051955977

Council decided to take the report to its next planning advisory committee meeting June 11 at 7 p.m. in council chambers for discussion. However, he is recommending the zoning and Official Plan changes required to facilitate the proposal not be made unless amendments including increased separation distances, further consultation with the province and protection of significant habitat be included. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is recommended the township meet with MOE and MNR representatives, at a later date, to review the site plan and ensure the necessary mitigation and recommendations contained in the peer reviewed technical studies are appropriately implemented under the Aggregate Resources Act site plan,â&#x20AC;? said Howarth. About 20 members of the public, including Miller officials and residents objecting to the proposal, attended the meeting, which was moved to the township fire hall adjacent to council chambers in anticipation of a large crowd. Residents in the area have been expressing concerns about the proposed expansion of quarry operations since the application came forward in 2007. Noise, dust, water quality and quantity and toxins are among the chief concerns.

McNeil to close 12 hours of Priorpalooza music June 8 Continued from front

In addition to the music there will be all sorts of amusements, a bouncy play area for children, face-painting and food vendors. Grinstead said the event will have a family picnic feel. The different types of music have been lumped together so fans of each kind can decide when to drop down to Robert Simpson Park. Grinstead during the 150th anniversary celebrations last year she heard over and over again that Arnprior needed an all-day concert along the lines of the Tribute to the Valley shows that used to attract so many people to Arnprior. People also feel Arnprior needs another annual festival, she said. The time of this event works well as Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official birthday is June 9, she added. Priorpalooza begins at 11 a.m. with Maria Hawkins, who will encourage members of the audience to sing along with her. A va-

riety of acts continue through the day (see Page 21) on the hour every hour with the grand finale being Canadian recording artist Suzie McNeil at 9 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very excited about coming and playing,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refreshing to see how enthusiastic the performers are.â&#x20AC;? She said the theme behind Priorpalooza is pride in community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This event will showcase our pride in Arnprior and area and its people,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how much talent we have here.â&#x20AC;? She said the committee was surprised and delighted to have so many talented entertainers apply when the call for entertainers was sent out. McNeil is best known for her Olympic Games song â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Believeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Her face will be familiar to music fans as she was last woman standing on the reality TV show Rockstar INXS. Based out of Toronto, the 36-year-old pop

rock singer has been focusing on her musical career since 2006 and has won several Canadian music awards. Former Arnprior resident, and 1310 News Talk Radio host, Stephanie Egan will be emceeing part of the day. Egan grew up in Arnprior and â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are happy to have her in town that day to help out,â&#x20AC;? said Grinstead. The road to the park will be closed and only available to local traffic. There will be free parking at Arnprior District High School and golf carts shuttling those with mobility issues back and forth. Grinstead notes that organizers have been able to make Priorpalooza a free event because of a grant from Trillium Ontario and sponsorship dollars from Ontario Power Generation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is very exciting for us,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come on down and show your pride in Arnprior â&#x20AC;Ś and help celebrate our 150th birthday.â&#x20AC;?

Canadian recording artist Suzie McNeil will take to the Priorpalooza stage at 9 p.m. The pop rock singer is best known for her Olympic Games song â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Believeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Her face will be familiar to music fans as she was last woman standing on the reality TV show Rockstar INXS.

Some town capital projects may experience delays Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - To address some financial redundancies, Arnprior is looking to carry forward several 2012 capital projects for another year as well as cancel projects prior to 2012 that haven’t yet begun. In the past, capital projects were treated almost like a hole in the account, said director of corporate services/treasurer Jennifer Morawiec. “You maintained all capital projects together and if some went over and some went under than you had that amount in the end,” said Morawiec. “We’d like to get away from that practice.” In several cases where it appeared there were surpluses that actually translated into overages. As such there are insufficient funds available to carry forward projects that had not been started by the end of 2011. The funds that were put aside will be returned directly to reserves, said Morawiec. During the 27 May council meeting she presented a report highlighting the projects town staff would like to postpone until 2013. She plans to present a similar report every year. Regular status reports will allow council to be fully informed about where capital project funds go, said Morawiec. Some of the projects that are being carried forward into 2013 included the replacement of the 1990 fire equipment van, studies on the Landfill Trigger Mechanism and a recreation master plan, the redesign of Landrigan Street as well as a few other projects. The funding of these projects would have totaled $291,200. Funding for the Landfill Design and Operation Plan as well as funding for the Marketing Strategy will not be proceeding in 2013 and $14,000 and $20,000 respectively will be returned to reserves. Morawiec also subsequently presented council with a financial report. “The intent of all this is to present council with a clearer picture of our town’s status and introduce any financial matter concerns and to update you on progress and improvements made in financially based initiative,” she said. She highlighted a few key parts for council. Water and wastewater revenues may appear low, but it only reflects one residential billing cycle. New rates were adopted on May 1 and

will be reflected in future utility bills. The town uses a bimonthly billing system. Public works expenditures are slightly higher than the expected average, which can be explained by the “seasonality essence” of some of the expenses. At first glance, taxation revenue look quite high, but it’s because the $6.7 million includes what the town billed out to county. The municipal portion of that is much lower. “So really when you look at just the municipal portion of that, it brings that down to about half and you would be looking at approximately 32 per cent, which is great for monetary target at about this time a year,” said Morawiec. A 10-year capital plan will be presented to councillors on June 24 in order to help them prioritize projects, highlight funding requirements and help guide annual decision-making. As part of the procurement bylaw, Morawiec handed out a list of procurements over $20,000. Tax sales for three local properties are in progress. In January 2013, the town issued letters to over 45 properly owners identifying that they were over three years in arrears and that they received a deadline of March 31 for payment before the next steps will be taken. “I’m happy to report that at the time of writing this report that those 45 properties were reduced to 14,” said Morawiec. “I’m happy to report that even today it’s down to nine.” In the past, the town did not participate in property assessment proceedings. “Right now I’m looking into some alternative methods of how to address these settlements and see if we can get some outside advice or to talk to some of the other municipalities to see what the best practices are,” she said. Staff has updated the town’s general accounts receivable to address uncollectable, some of which date back to the late 1980s and early ‘90s. A new overtime policy is being created to clarify some of the previous issues, said Morawiec. Increased monitoring and financial initiatives have been undertaken to reduce accounts receivable balance and staff will pursue collections to the fullest extent possible. “Overall the financial report seems reasonable for this point in the financial year,” she said.

EMC news - Arnprior’s sewer use bylaw will be getting a facelift to address some of the inconsistencies and potential issues. The bylaw hasn’t been updated since 2009 and some areas within the town’s sewer system are outdated and potentially detrimental to the overall operation. It also isn’t completely consistent with Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) guidelines. To remedy this, the bylaw needs an update. “The proposed bylaw provides detailed direction to the public concerning the uses and discharge limits,” said the town’s former environmental engineering technician Abby Barclay. “It also protects the town’s sewer works and provides the town with a higher level of enforcement towards the actual sewer use.” The bylaw is being revised to update the listing of limits for contaminants, the provisions

for hauled liquid waste, manholes, interceptors, dental waste and amalgam separators, garbage grinders, and swimming pools. It will establish a detailed listing of definitions in the bylaw. The new bylaw also looks to amend the currently separate User Fee and Charges bylaw. This will help cover the administration costs as well as costs incurred for the treatments at the Wastewater Pollution Control Centre. “The costs have increased to be more in line with those fees charged in neighboring municipalities,” said public work director Guy Bourgon in an email. “Most increases are reflective of inflationary pressures between 2009 and 2013. Rather than have the fees and charges in two separate bylaws, it was decided to incorporate the new fees in the revised User Fee and Charges bylaw and remove them from the Sewer Use Bylaw.” Fees are the same for residents and industry, but fines are substantially larger for corporations than for individuals.

Cost of building permits to grow Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - Home builders should brace themselves as the minimum building permit fees in Arnprior may soon rise. Currently most minimum fees are $50, but chief building officer/inspector Jacques Benoit believes a cost of $75 would more accurately reflect the needs of the town. Other permits will also cost more. The town’s building fees haven’t been updated since 2006 and are currently the lowest in the area. Most municipalities have adopted costs based on square footage while the town now bases its costs on the total construction value. Council will review the fees and decide whether or not the costs and the evaluation method need to be upgraded. The process began with a public meeting on the subject on May 13. If council agrees to the change, the new fee would translate to 90 cents per square foot for residential buildings and 40 cents per square foot for non-residential. The increase will help address a deficit in the budget, which has existed for the past few years. The building fees should be sustainable

Quarantine possible Continued from front

and any extra should be put in reserves, said Benoit. Apprehensions over the 50 per cent increase were raised by Reeve Walter Stack. “I think that is a pretty substantial hike and I don’t know how the public or the contractors will feel about that,” he said. The new fee would be higher, but contractors surveyed on the proposal have not complained to him, said Benoit. Basing the fee on square footage can be beneficial to them as building material and labour can add costs in even the smallest residence. Even with rising fees, the CBO admits that he plans to use common sense when applying some of the fees, in particular when he reviews plan modifications. “If they come in and say, ‘I want to move my toilet from this side of the room to the side’, do we want to charge him $250 to move his toilet from one place to another?” said Benoit. “This is what I mean by discretion.” Other permit fees such as plumbing, pools and signage could also increase, but will remain some of the lowest in Renfrew County. Any questions about building fees and permits should be directed to Benoit at jbenoit@ arnprior.ca. BRIER DODGE/METROLAND

“It’s a big deal because we are in Renfrew County,” said Judy Gardiner of Gardiner Tree Trimming and Removal Limited. “They would have to quarantine. “Because it’s a large county, I don’t know whether they would quarantine the whole county or whether they would divide it from say Renfrew down,” she added. With its insatiable taste for ash trees, the emerald ash borer has been ravaging forests just east of Arnprior in West Carleton, as it slowly creeps from Ottawa towards Renfrew County. Innocuous and even beautiful with its shiny green shell, the invasive beetle has caused thousands of ash trees to die in Ottawa alone. “There are no native pests that would keep it under control and the tree itself has no internal combating system like with other pests,” said Gardiner, her company’s on-site advisor. The beetle has only been in North America for the past 11 years, but has had deep repercussions. It is adversely affecting the forest industry and costing the city of Ottawa thousands upon thousands of dollars. Since 2009, the city has been under quarantine to help prevent the spread of the borer. Local wood and ash products cannot be moved over the established boundaries. Removing a single dead ash tree can cost from $700 to $1,000 and property owners are the ones in charge of paying the fee. Once the tree is taken down the wood is chipped up and typically burned. Once the tree is infested, it can take two to four years before it is destroyed beyond recognition. If caught in time, TreeAzin, a class-four insecticide, may offer some hope. “It has to be applied every second year at least four times so over an eight-year period,” said Gardiner. “At least that’s what they are telling us,” she added. “We don’t know if they are going to have to be treated for 10 years, 12 years or for the rest of its life really.” Often by the time thinning foliage and die-back in the crown has begun, the infestation is well under way. “The problem is the tree that looks fine is the tree that needs to be treated,” said Gardiner. The larvae can be in the tree two, three years before there are any problems.” “Healthy trees are the ones that should be treated now,” she added. The adult bugs are not the true threat. Its larvae feed on the soft new wood in a zigzag pattern, destroying the trees’ ability to properly absorb nutriments. “As they feed they destroy all the tubes that run up and down,” said Gardiner. “They go across and basically kill the tree.” The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) requires people to report any signs or symptoms by phone 1-800-442-2342 (toll-free) or online at www.inspection.gc.ca.

TEAM Highway 17 discusses safety changes to route Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC news - The TEAM Highway 17 committee stands for Taking Effective Action to Manage Highway 17, and that’s exactly what committee members are looking to do. In fact, some recommendations from the committee’s April meeting have already been given the green light, meaning road improvements will be made along a three-kilometre section of the highway near Haley Station. The committee, which was formed last year following a continuation of accidents, including a fatality at Haley Station, has examined what changes might be needed to make the two-lane Highway 17 safer. The committee, which consists of Ontario Ministry of Transportation officials, Ontario Provincial Police representatives and Renfrew County engineering and public works director Dave Darch, intends to meet three or four times a year.

At its last meeting, April 9 in Kingston, the committee reviewed several sections of Highway 17 that are of current or potential concern. Discussion focused on the Haley Station section, between Chenaux Road and Yonder Hill Trail. After removing animal-related collisions, it was determined this section of highway is exhibiting a higher number of loss-of-control collisions than expected. As a result, Darch says the following interim measures will be implemented on that section of the highway: • installation of centreline and edge line rumble strips; • installation of Chevron signs to indicate the need to reduce speed; and • general consolidation of signs. MTO is also considering fully paving highway shoulders in this section, to mitigate loss-of-control collisions and to provide slip-around locations for vehicles passing left-turning vehicles. The committee members learned

many collisions are happening at the Haley Road intersection, but also on the horizontal curves in the same area. These curves are generally tighter than other curves on Highway 17, says the committee meeting’s summary for county council. It was also agreed a long-term study is needed to examine long-term solutions, since the highway’s fourlaning well past Arnprior may not be implemented for a number of years. The committee also looked at possible Highway 17 changes at the Anderson-Miller Road and Goshen Road intersections in McNab-Braeside. In both cases, it was agreed the creation of left-turning lanes would not mitigate collisions. These conclusions were drawn after removing the incidence of animal-related accidents. The committee also discussed possible changes to Highway 17 from 3.5 kilometres west of Murphy Road to the Petawawa-Chalk River boundary. The committee decided no additional

Renfrew County council has approved the position of acting warden, as recommended by Warden Peter Emon. The acting warden won’t be named until January 2014, in keeping with the approval process for amending the county’s procedural bylaw. This county councillor would attend ceremonial functions or events in the warden’s absence. Immediately following the inaugural session of county council, in January 2014, the warden may recommend a member

of county council for the position. That person would be compensated on a per-diem basis for events or functions attended. Admaston-Bromley Raye-Anne Briscoe told Emon his recommendation was a “dream of a good idea … because we can’t all be 10 places at once.” At least twice since January, Emon has had to miss community events because of conflicting committee meetings. Also, noted Emon, “If for some reason the warden of the day can’t be at county council, then the acting warden would be appointed by motion to chair the meeting that day.”

remedial action was recommended. The committee also discussed the section west of Yonder Hill Trail to the eastern limits of Cobden. After removing animal-related collisions, it was determined there are a greater number of vehicular collisions than expected, and that many are rear-end collisions within the eastbound passing lane.

Just say no to grow-op registry

B

uyer beware. And buyers of really big items â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like a house â&#x20AC;&#x201C; should be very wary indeed. Members of the Ontario Real Estate Association are calling on the province to create a provincial database of all homes that have been used as marijuana grow-ops or drug labs. There is a risk that a former grow-op could contain moulds and that a chemical lab location could have dangerous residues. A local realtor suggests a provincial list of these homes could be consulted by would-be home buyers before signing for a new home. It sounds like a reasonable plan until the effectiveness and cost of a drug house registry is considered. Who will pay to create the database, and more importantly, who will pay to keep it updated? No one wants to download busy-work onto police officers in multiple jurisdictions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; municipal, OPP and RCMP â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when they could be solving crimes or preventing them. The real estate agentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wish list would also be sadly incomplete. Police only know about homes where they find grow-ops or drug labs, leaving all the other illicit locations off any provincial registry. And it turns out there are pay-per-use websites that home seekers can check to learn the

history of a home. Given the size of a home purchase, the cost of adding in a history check doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem onerous. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the issue of spending public funds to create a database that will benefit only one part of the population. If you can afford a house, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fortunate. Buying a house is a private transaction, so the responsibility should fall on the parties involved to do their due diligence. If we as a society mandate that the province must keep tabs on homes others may not want to buy, how long will it be until we need a registry of homes where murders have occurred? How about a list of houses with Bad Mojo or a report of ghosts? Buyer beware is a fact of life. Plus we have laws to dissuade anyone from selling a damaged home without telling the buyer. If someone knowingly sells a house and does not inform the buyer of hidden damage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from any source â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they could face charges of fraud. No one should have to live in a mouldy or damaged home, so people shopping for a house should do everything they can to make sure their purchase is healthy. If they hire a real estate agent, they should be confident that the agent has their best interests at heart and has done all possible research on their dream home.

LETTER

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waste any more time on quarry To the Editor: Here we are once again looking forward to another meeting involving McNab-Braeside Council and Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Paving Limited. What a total and complete waste of time. Our council needs to spend time on other things to do with running the township. Any council member who would vote to allow Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to continue with their plans to allow a permanent hot-mix asphalt plant, a permanent wash and screening plant, a permanent concrete plant right in the middle of a rural residential area is just plain stupid. Yes, I used the word stupid. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think any of us voted these people into office because they lack brains. There is enough information out there to show that going ahead with

this is dangerous for the people, wildlife and the environment as a whole. Our councillors are in office to represent us and to do what is best for us. This whole exercise is a waste of time and money and benefits no one other than Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Why then do we continue? Can we not vote no and move on. There is absolutely no benefit to the township, a few seasonal jobs and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it. It is absolute lunacy to put our drinking water in danger for no benefit? This brings me to the question of why our Municipal Planner seems to be pushing to have this application to rezone accepted. I would like to hear him answer that. He is supposed to be looking after our best interest the

same as our council is. There are enough holes in what has been presented from Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to throw cows through. Not only are there health issues and environmental issues, there will be problems with the increased traffic on roads that were not built to sustain the amount of traffic from heavy trucks, etc. These roads were built in the 1950s and there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even shoulders big enough to allow a large vehicle to pull over. Millers do have deep pockets but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make them right nor does it give them the right to ruin our community. They do have the right to make this request, but it is our right to say no. Gail Anderson Braeside

Patient & Family Advisory Council

Volunteer Drivers Needed

Accreditation Canada advises that hospitals regularly consult with and encourage feedback from the community about the organization and its services. To help promote this dialogue and to ensure that the tactics are appropriate from a patient point of view, a number of hospitals, including Arnprior Regional Health (ARH), have started a Patient & Family Advisory Council (PFAC). PFAC is creating a forum where the community has an opportunity to participate in the delivery of Quality Care at ARH. A family council has existed for many years, with great success, at the Grove Nursing Home. The implementation of this council for the hospital is helping create a strong foundation for partnership with the community and ensuring that ARH administration is aware of the needs/desires and expectation of patient and their families. “I feel this is a win/win endeavor for hospital administration, hospital staff, patients, patient families, doctors and community at large to benefit. The success of these councils in other hospitals is evident and I am honoured to be a part of this new beginning at ARH. I would like to commend Eric Hanna and Leah Levesque for taking the initiative to give the patients and families of Arnprior a voice through the Patient & Family Advisory Council,” said PFAC Chair Gina Pilon.

Next they add an inner lining of fine material such as soft plant fibres, which is formed into a bowl by pressing the breast against it. Some birds add a third layer, a special outer covering for camouflage. Ruby-throated Hummingbirds stick lichens to their nests, Wood Thrushes liberally decorate theirs with dead leaves, and Eastern Phoebes add green moss to make their nests blend into dark crevices. Often a thousand material-gathering trips are made. With all the investment of time and effort, one would think a nest would be used for years. In most cases, a songbirdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nest is used for only one season. Sometimes one gets refurbished and is used again for a second nesting in the same season, but almost never is one used again the following year. Increased risk of parasites and predation are two reasons for this. If you do locate a nest, never alter its environment. Photographers often cause nest desertion by cutting away concealing

EMC lifestyle - The Ontario government and the OPP are reminding people to take simple precautions this spring to help prevent attracting black bears as they come out of hibernation. The potential for human-bear conflicts increases when there is little natural food available for bears. If this happens, black bears will search for other food sources, such as garbage and bird feed, which can draw bears to populated areas. Follow these simple instructions to minimize the chances of attracting bears: â&#x20AC;˘ store garbage in waste containers with tight-fitting lids; â&#x20AC;˘ put out garbage only on the morning of pick-up; â&#x20AC;˘ put away bird feeders and seed, suet and nectar also attract bears; â&#x20AC;˘ pick fruits and berries as they ripen; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let them rot on the ground; â&#x20AC;˘ clean outdoor barbecue grills after each use, including the

Bears that enter a populated area arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily a threat to public safety. Public safety is at risk when a bear poses an immediate threat to your personal safety. The Ministry of Natural Resources and OPP have agreed on the roles and responsibilities for both organizations to help the public understand which organization to contact when they encounter a bear. If a bear is posing an immediate threat to public safety by exhibiting threatening or aggressive behaviour, call 911 or your local police.

EMC lifestyle - It may seem surprising that some birds have already hatched young and are now stuffing tender goodies into cavernous mouths. Most, however, have only recently arrived back onto home turf and are completing nuptial vows. Soon the laborious job of building a nest is about to begin. A nest might seem a simple thing to construct. Just grab a few sticks and throw them together and voila! For a few birds, this is indeed the case. Ruffed Grouse pull a few leaves together and then add a few down feathers to soften the nest interior. Mourning Doves cram a few sticks onto a flat branch and drop their eggs into the flimsy structure. Killdeer spend even less effort; they scratch out a shallow scrape in the ground and lay their eggs in the depression. Larger birds commonly use heavy sticks to construct what is appropriately known as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;stick nest.â&#x20AC;? American Crows, herons, and hawks generally build bulky stick structures. While for some birds the materials are gathered from the ground, Ospreys will break off branches attached to dead trees. I recall as a young boy hearing loud cracks arising from the back end of a pond on Morris Island. Mystified and with visions of bears filling my head, I crept along the pondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perimeter to investigate. To my surprise I saw a huge Osprey land on a dead branch and flop its wings up and down, causing the branch to shake. With a tremendous â&#x20AC;&#x153;crack,â&#x20AC;? the lengthy branch broke off and then was delivered to a massive nest in a nearby tree. Songbirds invest considerably more time

High Lonesome Nature Reserve tours to be offered June 16 EMC lifestyle – The public is invited to participate in a trip to the Pakenham Hills Sunday, July 16 to visit the latest wilderness acquisition of the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC). The beautiful High Lonesome Nature Reserve, with its network of trails that wind by creeks and beaver ponds, through leafy glades, beneath tall white pines and across wild meadows replete with butterflies, is a marvelous example of what can happen when community members support their local land trust. Young and old alike are invited to join naturalist trail guides to explore this enchanting property. Take this opportunity to experience a diversity of wildlife habitats and learn about the ecology of a Provincially Significant Wetland Complex. A variety of trail length options will be available from a Rabbits’ Romp, to the more relaxed Sam’s Hill Saunter, a Curious Children’s Circuit, and a Pond Prowl through the evergreen borderlands. The 200-acre High Lonesome Nature Reserve was donated to the Conservancy by the family of the late Barry Spicer whose heartfelt wish was to see this area fully restored to its natural state and protected for all time. A land trust is the appropriate vehicle to en-

able this type of protection. The MMLTC is a private, non-profit charitable organization that works to preserve land with significant ecological value. Its catchment area includes the entire Mississippi River watershed, north to the Madawaska River. Since its inception in 2003, the Conservancy has taken under its protection 1,550 acres of land including the spectacular Blueberry Mountain, one of the Seven Wonders of Lanark County. Registration for the June 16 event is at 9:30 a.m. with the guided nature outings beginning at 10 sharp. Participants are encouraged to wear appropriate footwear for wilderness trails and consider making a $10 donation to help MMLTC cover taxes, insurance and other related costs associated with the land trust. Refreshments will be served following the walks. To find the property from County Road 29 in Pakenham, drive west on Waba Road for 2.9 km, turn left on Barr Side Road for 1.6 km, take the first left at Carbine Road and drive four km to 867 Carbine Rd. A map with directions can be found on the MMLTC website at www. mmltc.ca. For more information, call 613-278-2939.

Endangered species changes spark debate dertake projects that protect endangered species; • simplifying requirements for municipalities to carry out activities that protect human health and safety, such as road repairs; • a time-limited transition provision that will allow projects currently in development to continue while mitigating adverse effects on endangered species; • harmonizing requirements under the Endangered Species Act and Crown Forest Sustainability Act to preserve protection while avoiding overlap. The existing approval process remains for all other activities. The province will continue to ensure compliance through education and outreach, as well as monitoring, auditing and enforcement. The changes, including “sweeping exemptions for industry,” have caused some groups to complain the government has “gutted” the law protecting threatened wildlife. “This is the first major test of the new Cabinet’s commitment to the environment, and they have failed,” charged Dr. Anne Bell, director of conservation and education at On-

tario Nature in a news release. “They have turned their backs on the province’s most imperilled wildlife, and at a time when the federal government is poised to do the same.” She says the new exemptions lower the standard of protection for endangered plants and animals across many industries, including forestry, pits and quarries, renewable energy, hydro, mining, infrastructure development, waste management, and commercial and residential development. They also “dramatically reduce” government oversight of activities affecting Ontario’s lakes, rivers, forests and wildlife, she adds. “The scope of the exemptions is appalling,” says Amber Ellis, executive director of Earthroots. “The government has caved to industry and turned a deaf ear to all who believe in society’s duty to protect endangered species.” “It’s hard to understand how Cabinet could choose to dismantle a law that was passed with broad public acclaim and support from all parties just six years ago,” said Bell. “Looks like endangered species only had fair-weather friends at Queen’s Park.”

EMC news – Ontario is simplifying rules for landowners, municipalities and businesses under its Endangered Species Act (ESA), while “maintaining its place as a North American leader in species protection.” But the province is coming under fire from both sides for its moves. On July 1, 65 more species will benefit from habitat protection. Ontario protects about 150 threatened and endangered species, including polar bear, chimney swift, butternut and wolverine. That has sparked worries by industry and local governments, including Renfrew County council, that it could place too many restrictions on development and harvesting of resources. In conjunction with expanding the number of protected species, the province will streamline its approach to species at risk protection by implementing standardized rules and an online registry for certain low-risk activities. That has caused environmentalists to express alarm that the government is shying away from its promises in this area. The changes include: • making it easier for volunteers and researchers to un-

Neighbours take aim at proposal for Pakenham area firing range Chris Must

EMC news – A proposal to build a firearms training facility in a rural area near Pakenham has drawn heavy fire from neighbours, who expressed fears at a public meeting May 21 that “tactical teams” complete with machine guns and helicopters might descend on the quiet pastoral region. The public meeting was hosted by the Town of Mississippi Mills in order to hear submissions concerning an application by landowner Jean-Francois Roy to rezone two hectares (five acres) of land, part of lots 8 and 9 on Concession 5 in Pakenham Ward. The application seeks a rezoning of the property from rural to commercial, to allow the facility to proceed. More than 100 residents of the area crowded the council chamber to raise a wide range of questions and concerns, which remain unanswered to date. Councillors voted to accept a recommendation from town planner Stephen Stirling to defer the public meeting until more information is received from the applicant, after giving all members of the public who were present an opportunity to comment. Town staff have also requested information from the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority and the Ontario Provincial Police. Noting that a group of neighbours had met for several hours on two occasions to discuss the firearms training facility proposal, spokesman John Grierson gave a power point presentation that he said was intended to summarize their objections in several categories, and invited a series of speakers to touch on each point. One problem faced by the neighbours, Grierson said, is that the project has been a “moving

target,” leaving them unsure of whether plans call for an indoor or outdoor shooting range, or both. Residents have been told that the proposed facility would be operated in conjunction with Millbrook Canada, a Stittsville-based organization which offers tactical training for military and law enforcement personnel. Tactical training, suggested neighbor Mark Richardson, might include the use of pyrotechnics and automatic weapons, which, he said, would “forever destroy our idyllic part of the world.” Dr. Paul Smith, an environmental consultant, said the project should not be allowed to proceed because the property is designated as significant wetlands and may be home to several endangered species, such as the Blanding’s turtle and butternut tree. To allow development there would contravene provincial policy, he said. Another neighbor, Wayne Griese, said: “I’m close enough to be worried about noise.” He said the site is close to a number of rural businesses, including Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm and Fulton’s Pancake House, and “we don’t want the noise in our backyard.” Local residents also raised concerns about potential fire hazards and negative impact on property values. Real estate agent Mike Richards said military training facilities, such as the JTF2 facility in Dwyer Hill, drive down adjacent property values. Shirley Fulton-Deugo, owner of Fulton’s Pancake House and Sugar Bush, noted her business has been operating for five generations – over 170 years – and currently attracts 20,000 to 30,000 visitors annually.

Volunteers recognized for Adopt-a-Road contributions Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC news - Renfrew County council and staff gathered to thank the volunteers who help keep more than 100 kilometres of county roads a lot cleaner than they would otherwise be. At the May 29 meeting of county council, 18 groups or individuals were recognized with Adopt-aRoad program certificates that said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you for helping to keep Renfrew County beautiful.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an opportunity to partner with our community, with our taxpayers, and to endeavour to keep our county beautiful,â&#x20AC;? said public works and engineering director Dave Darch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud that we have this program, and equally, if not more, proud of the volunteers who have come forward to look after our roads,â&#x20AC;? he added. Presenting the certificates were Arnprior county councillor and operations committee chair Walter Stack and Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon. Accepting the first certificate were Grace Yantha-Blimkie and Frank Blimkie for the Glasgow Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adoption of McLean Drive in McNab-Braeside. Yantha-Blimkie said WI members and their husbands do garbage pickup twice a year on their adopted road

â&#x20AC;&#x153;because we care and we do good work in the community.â&#x20AC;? Another McNab-Braeside Adopt-a-Road contributor was the Burnstown Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institute for upkeeping a portion of Burnstown Road, while Greater Madawaska had two groups recognized â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Isobel and Miklos Kristijan on Centennial Lake Road and Calabogie Motor Inn for tending to Lanark Road. Another volunteer recognized was the soon-to-be-closed Renfrew and District Christian School, whose students and staff look after the section of Bruce Street west of the entrance to the landfill site. The Adopt-a-Road program kicked off in 2005, with a $10,000 start-up grant from Renfrew County Community Futures. County operations manager Steve Boland, who co-ordinates Adopt-ARoad, says the program was created in the face of mounting calls about roadside litter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea,â&#x20AC;? said Boland, â&#x20AC;&#x153;was to try to reduce litter and develop some pride in the community, and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done that, and to make Renfrew County beautiful.â&#x20AC;? While more than 100 kilometres of roads are adopted, about 700 kilometres remain unadopted. Those interested in adopting a road are asked to call public works at 613-732-4353. Other Adopt-a-Road volunteers recognized included the Whitewater

Paul Ralph of Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm said neighbours are concerned that if the facility is allowed to proceed, he said, it would be bound to expand in the future. Speaking on behalf of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists, Dr. Tineke Kuiper said the prospect of

all-terrain vehicles, military equipment â&#x20AC;&#x153;and perhaps even helicoptersâ&#x20AC;? entering the area would be an inappropriate use for environmentally sensitive land.

EMC news - The Grove Nursing Home’s adult day program for seniors is one of several programs that will receive funding from the Renfrew County United Way (RCUW). The United Way announced last week that eight Renfrew County organizations will receive the funding for the year between this April and March 2014. The Grove will received $23,000 for the program that serves seniors in Arnprior, McNabBraeside, Greater Madawaska and area. The United Way recently changed its funding model to align with its strategic priorities. As of Jan. 1, United Way funds a different mix of agencies region-wide and is no longer providing money only for a select group of agencies that were previously referred to as ‘member agencies’. Money raised by the United Way is now focused towards programs that bridge the gap between what is currently being funded (basic human needs and crisis services) and what needs to be the communities’ primary focus (preventative measures and fixing the underlying cause of problems). The organization is directing more resources to addressing root causes and the RCUW encourages agencies throughout Renfrew County to partner, by pooling their resources and their intellects to come up with innovative solutions to the complex problems faced today. A region-wide ‘Call for Proposals’ was issued at the beginning of last July and by the deadline of Sept. 30, RCUW received 21 proposals from 16 area agencies. The proposals were evaluated last fall. The Grove and seven

other organizations are receiving funding. Hospice Renfrew was awarded $20,000 for hiring a volunteer co-ordinator. The Renfrew County Sexual Assault/Rape Crisis Support Centre receives $10,450 for hosting a two-day conference to provide training and education for health, social providers, community members, allies and parents in order to better understand Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) issues; improve accessibility; health and social services for LGBT youths and adults living in Renfrew County. The Phoenix Centre for Children and Families gets $30,000 for an Equine Therapy Program. The Boys and Girls Club of Pembroke receives $30,000 for after-school programs for children and youth in that area. The Petawawa Military Family Resource Centre receives $10,000 for pre-natal nutrition and post-natal programs. The North Renfrew Family Services gets $36,000 for family counselling services. The Grind, a Salvation Army Youth Centre, receives $10,000 for Monday to Wednesday programs. “We continue to expand our reach throughout Renfrew County and the board is very pleased to be able to fund the excellent work of these eight groups and organizations,” said RCUW board chair Shelley Rolland-Poruks. “There is such a great demand for programming in our area that will improve the lives of residents and the RCUW is very proud to play a major role in achieving this important goal,” said Arnprior’s Cathi Fairfield, who is chair of the RCUW funds distribution committee.

The hospital that has helped so many Valley children is holding its 30th annual Telethon June 8-9 on CTV. The 24-hour telethon runs from 7 p.m. Saturday to 7 p.m. Sunday. The telethon traditionally draws plenty of support from Arnprior and area residents, appreciative of the service it provides this area. Helping to mobilize support for the Telethon is the Arnprior Co-operators staff, who will again answer phones and hold a party to spread awareness of the fundraiser. The Co-Operators’ phone lines will be open Saturday from 7 to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to accept pledges. The number to call is 613-623-3789. Co-operators is also hosting a fundraising barbecue Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at its Madawaska Boulevard office. It will feature live music by The Working Class, a display by Arnprior firefighters, med techs from

CFB Petawawa with a teddy bear’s clinic, a visit from the CHEO bear, and a variety of children’s amusements and facepainting. The goal this year is to raise $10,000 in Arnprior and area for CHEO Last year’s Telethon raised a record $6.44 million. As well as providing local en-

tertainment, the show takes the viewer inside the walls of the children’s hospital to share the success stories and show the courage of the young patients. Support of the CHEO Telethon will help provide life-saving equipment, insure that life-saving research continues, and help make the pediatric hospital the best it can be.

DANCE

Connected to your community

Arnprior sister, brother Broadway Bound EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A pair of Arnprior siblingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fancy footwork has danced them all the way to Broadway. Emily Cherney, 13, and Thomas Cherney, who is turning 10 on June 11, have won scholarships to the Be Discovered Broadway Bound program. The intensive dance training program runs July 26Aug. 1 and Emily and Thomas have earned $1,000 U.S. each towards the program costs. There is still work to be done, however, to raise funds to cover the remainder of the costs of the trip. The family is reaching out to businesses and individuals in the community for sponsorships and donations.

The siblings have both been dancing since the age of 3, training for years at the Arnprior School of Dance. They earned the spot with their performance of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Anything you can do I can do betterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; from Annie Get Your Gun. The team performed the song at a Carleton University competition where Broadway Bound officials were on hand. Huge credit goes to School of Dance director Monica Lyon and choreographer Andrea Bahm-Barker, say the Cherneys. The students are triple threats, say their mom, with acting and singing abilities among their skill set. The children are home schooled in Arnprior. Thomas said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anticipating learning more about

dance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to learning some new moves,â&#x20AC;? he said. Dance provides him a certain freedom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get to express my feelings through dance,â&#x20AC;? he said. For Emily, dancing provides a distraction from the chaos of busy, everyday life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes my mind off things,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just get to be myself.â&#x20AC;? She was thrilled to find out she had won the scholarship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just in shock. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even think of any words to say,â&#x20AC;? said Emily. While her brother says he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t particularly have his eye on a dance career when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an adult, Emily would love to continue dancing, singing and performing. This trip to Broadway will help her see if a life on stage

is what she wants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wanted to see what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like,â&#x20AC;? she said. PROUD MOM

Mother Lori Ann Cherney couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happier with her childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking it all in stride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been incredibly humble through this whole thing. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be working with top New York choreographers from Lion King and Newsies,â&#x20AC;? she said. They will also have a chance to perform on the Lion King stage, which they are really excited about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to live the life of a professional dancer,â&#x20AC;? said Lori Ann. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To them as dancers, this is the equivalent of a hockey player going to the NHL.â&#x20AC;? Lori Ann said the family canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thank the community enough for the support theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve received from family, friends, the Arnprior School of Dance and the town. Dance and ASD have become more than just an activity for the kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arnprior School of Dance competitive team is not just a place to go, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a family,â&#x20AC;? said Lori Ann. Fundraising efforts have begun and the family has appeared on Heritage Radio, so is getting used to life in the spotlight.

Nobody helps Optimists St. Joseph Grade 5 student Cohen Dunn hands over a cheque for $131.25 to Optimist president Brad McKay. His yard-sale raised money to go toward the club’s youth activities. Cohen’s class is participating in the Who is Nobody? project, a character education program. Each student gets a turn to apply their personal interests and abilities in the creation of a unique character-building project, by doing something that helps people in the community or anywhere in the world. A class scrapbook is filled with stories, pictures and photos and Nobody becomes a Somebody who captures everybody’s characterin-action.

Another 18 months for Fitzroy man Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - After getting an additional 18 months for molesting four teenage girls, Paul Laframboise started shaking, wringing his hands and muttered “I’m going to die.” The 74-year-old Fitzroy Harbour man had previously pleaded guilty to several charges including sexual assault, sexual exploitation and sexual interference as well as careless storage of guns. He has been in jail since October and has already served 225 days behind bars. Laframboise remained stone-faced as Judge Heather Perkins-McVey read impact statements the girls provided, highlighting how profoundly affected they all were by his actions. Two of the girls wrote about their attempted suicide while another described how she would wake up in tears, terrified that he would find her and hurt her. She no longer trusts people, particularly older men, and lives in constant fear that she will be harmed for stepping

forward. Another blamed herself and fears she is seen differently by her peers. Her selfesteem and self-worth have been deeply affected. All four girls bare deep emotional pain from his actions, according to the judge. The victims also wrote that the media had also caused further harm by publishing lurid and identifying details. LACK OF UNDERSTANDING

Laframboise previously spoke of his deep remorse, but Perkins-McVey did not feel he truly comprehended the deep turmoil he inflicted on the girls. “You speak about your life and health,” she said. “You show little realization on how it affects your victims.” Laframboise’s lawyer Joseph Addelman argued for a more lenient sentence consisting of an additional 34 days, citing that his client was old, sick and this was his first offense. He had also pleaded guilty, allowing his victims to avoid having to testify in court. And he brought forth his own diffi-

cult upbringing, his aboriginal status and the unwavering support of his wife of 52 years. Perkins-McVey took these aspects into consideration, but ultimately decided she needed to send a message that children are to be cherished and protected. Laframboise had been an upstanding member of the Fitzroy Harbour community for several years, working as a Sunday school teacher and a school custodian, she said. After being asked to step down from his church role for unknown reasons, he spiraled downwards, drinking heavily and allegedly occurring $200,000 in gambling debts. Perkins-McVey said that despite his remorse, he consistently portrayed himself as a victim of the justice system. Previously in court, he told the judge to “do to me what you politically must,” as he no longer trusted Man, was used to being treated like garbage and life was knocking him down. Once released, he will receive three years of probation and his DNA will be put on record.

HEALTH

Funding for rural hospitals John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – Eight rural hospitals, including Arnprior Regional Health, will receive new funding for collaborative programs aimed at improving patient care. The Arnprior District Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) announced the $3.9 million in one-time funding in late May and discussed the programs at its board meeting May 29 at Cedar Hill school near Pakenham. The money will allow the eight small hospitals in the Champlain region to partner on six new initiatives. The projects will provide more coordinated quality care and improve the transition of patients between hospital and community services. The newly named Champlain Alliance of Small Hospitals worked closely with the LHIN to choose projects based on patients’ needs, ensuring they aligned with the LHIN’s strategic priorities. Most of the funding will go toward upgrading electronic patient records and allowing hospitals to share information with other providers in the patient’s care team. That will increase quality, improve efficiency and eliminate duplicate files for those being admitted, discharged or transferred. Community-based health providers such as Family Health Teams

will have real-time access to patients’ hospital clinical results. This will mean more seamless care for patients as they transition through the system. Additional funded projects include assisting hospital patients to return home safely with community supports in place, and conducting a feasibility study on the creation of a regional pharmacy among small hospitals to improve co-ordination and safety. HOME FIRST

The Home First approach used in urban areas to help hospital patients continue their recovery safely and comfortably at home while receiving enhanced home-care services will now be expanded to rural areas region. The rural hospitals will also put in place standardized, evidence-based checklists used by clinicians to ensure patients get the most appropriate treatment. The projects need to be in place by this December 2013. The eight participating hospitals are in Arnprior, Renfrew, Almonte, Carleton Place, Deep River, Barry’s Bay, Alexandria and Kemptville. “Small and rural hospitals play a crucial role in the health system, providing top-notch care to people close to where they live,” said Champlain LHIN CEO Chantale LeClerc.

SHERRY HAAIMA/METROLAND

From one bank to another Scotiabank Arnprior officials recently handed over a $5,000 donation to the Arnprior Regional Health Partners in Caring campaign. The funds were raised through various projects, including bake and book sales. Above, Stacey Kelly, Mary Ellen McCue, Debbie Swant, Sudhir Khanna and Debra MacGarvie present a cheque to ARH’s Karen Smith. “This is a great opportunity for us to give back to our community,” said Kelly. The presentation was made on a special day for Swant, who was celebrating her retirement. Staff and customers enjoyed cake to mark the occasion.

“The Champlain LHIN is supporting rural hospitals by investing in projects that will make a real difference to patient care. What’s most impor-

tant is that eight small hospitals in our region are working together to achieve results.” If the 2013 Ontario budget is

passed, the Transformation Fund for Small and Rural Hospitals will provide an annual source of funding for such programs.

Blowin’ in the wind

Arnprior karate students win three medals at provincial tourney EMC sports - Three Arnprior School of Karate students returned home with medals from the Canadian Japan Karate Federation (CJKF) Ontario Provincial Tournament in Scarborough recently. It was an impressive result for the Arnprior school as almost 300 participants from close to 20 schools across the province participated in the prestigious tournament. “We’re building a solid reputation given that many of these schools have been around a long time and we’re more of the ‘new kids on the block’,” said Arnprior Sensei Garth Templeman. “We’re training people to compete provincially, nationally and hopefully internationally in a few years.” Paul Crawford competed in the 10-13 boys green/purple belts category and won gold in kata (forms). His younger brother, Eric, competed in the 9-and-under boys green/purple belt category and won silver in kata (forms). And Peter Fogarasi competed in the 1013 boys white/yellow/orange belts category and won bronze in kumite (fighting). When asked about their experience, the Crawford boys said that they really enjoyed competing again this year (they had returned with three medals between them last year). “It’s a lot of fun to perform what you’ve been taught and trained well to do,” said

Paul. “And then watch others at higher levels so we can be prepared for future competitions,” added Eric. The students’ parents were thrilled with the results. “I just want to thank Sensei Garth and Sempei France – and really the entire dojo family,” said Andrew Fogarasi, father of Peter. “They provide such a great environment for learning, improving, and having fun.” “Bringing home the medals that we do is impressive given how many compete,” said Marie-Hélène Crawford, mother of the Crawford boys and a fellow student. “The average school brings home one medal per five competitors – we brought home one medal for each competitor. When you compare our level of performance with other students and dojos, we stand out. We are so lucky to have such fantastic instruction without having to travel away from our small town.” Sensei Templeman and Sempei France Guillemette congratulated the students on their achievements. “We’re extremely proud of what these students have achieved,” said Sensei Templeman. “Actually we’re proud of all our students and we look forward to their future accomplishments. “We train hard in Ottawa under Sensei Saeki, who is seventh degree and chief instructor for the CJKF. To be

able to learn from him and the JKA organization is a great honor and we’re happy to be able to pass that on to our students here,” said Templeman. “We received the ultimate compliment from him just last year at the JKA national Koyo camp when he told all the other Canadian instructors that our students are at par with those he trains personally. Now we’re dedicated to upholding that standard. “And the support we get is incredible,” he added. “Camps and seminars happen throughout the year. “Senior students of Sensei Saeki come and teach in Arnprior frequently. We even have the current adult black belt provincial kumite champion coming to teach our students soon. We’re truly blessed.” When asked about the future Sempei Guillemette said: “We plan to nurture the reputation we’ve worked so hard to achieve. We love what we do and believe it shows both in the competition results and everyday lives and attitudes of our students.” The Arnprior School of Karate provides training to students of all ages upstairs at the Arnprior Curling Club at 15 Galvin St. It is a proud member of the national CJKF and international Japanese Karate Association.

When the adults emerge, they create small, 1/8 inch D-shaped exit holes that are characteristic of this insect, although they can be hard to see. If you were to remove the bark on the trunk of a tree showing these symptoms, you should also ďŹ nd the larval galleries.

Golfers, welcome to newly named Henry Egan Lane Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC sports - There’s a new special sign at the entrance to the Renfrew Golf Club. Long-time club employee Henry Egan, who lives in Arnprior, was toasted in a special retirement ceremony at the club May 18, when it was announced that the road leading to the clubhouse and pro shop would be named in his honour. The club entrance bears one Henry Egan Lane sign, while another will soon be erected at the corner, just before the putting green. It’s a fitting tribute to a man whose gift for remembering and helping people is practically legendary, say club members. He describes his own golf game as mediocre, but the same can’t be said about his people skills and the contributions he has made to help the Renfrew Golf Club grow over the years. “It’s a fantastic way for every golfer who comes here to remember Henry,” says club general manager Sebastien Brown. “An unbelievable number of people come into the pro shop and ask for him.” Lee Sharpe, who has been a club member since 1977, says Egan is best regarded as a solid ambassador for the club. She says the reasons include his outstanding people skills, friendliness and interest in whatever he does. Keith McKinnon, a club member since 1972, says it’s amazing how many people and people’s names Egan remembers over the years. People are so impressed that inevitably Renfrew Club members are asked on trips to farther-away golf destinations such as Syracuse and Malone, “So how’s Henry?” “I feel very honoured that it has happened,” says Egan, 70, after the naming of Henry Egan Lane. “It’s a very nice gesture by the golf club.” The Arnprior resident, who only plays golf once a week, says he just likes being at the club and involved with its activities. Most of all, he says, “I hope people think I’ve made a contribution along the way, and I guess I must have, if they’re doing this.” One of his most memorable times at the club was the expansion from nine to 18 holes in 1973, but there have been several such times. During the May 18 retirement ceremony to honour his exceptional professional service and dedication to the Renfrew Golf Club, emcees McKinnon and Sharpe reflected on his storied

45-year career. They noted that Egan managed each of the club’s major operational departments, including 15 years as the club golf professional and manager of pro shop operations. His personality and professional approach with guests and members, they say, resulted in increased membership, green fee play and junior involvement. He also spent five years as the club manager and 13 years as the club’s course superintendent. During this time the Renfrew Golf Club was recognized as the No. 1 course in the Ottawa Valley. He also spent the last 12 years as the pro shop assistant and club operational specialist. His knowledge of all aspects of the club, said the emcees, has been invaluable to the club and appreciated by long-time staff members and new hires alike. The emcees also noted his involvement with many projects. One was the creation in 1969 of the men’s night format that quickly grew to more than 100 golfers, and continues to be enjoyed by members and guests today. In 1973, he offered insight on the design and construction of the second nine holes (now the front nine) and on the basic irrigation system for the original nine holes (now the back nine) that was built in 1929. Egan also co-ordinated the pro shop’s move from the original first tee to its current site, and assisted with design and construction of the clubhouse and pro shop extensions. He was also instrumental in the design and reconstruction of all 18 greens in 2000. Some of his long-time friends and RGC staff members also extended thank-yous or shared stories at Egan’s retirement ceremony. Among them were Chuck Lemenchick, a friend for 45 years and best man at his wedding; Bob Lemenchick and Dave Eady who were Egan’s first pro shop employees in 1968; 1980s kitchen staff member Margaret Broome; Dick Hill, course maintenance staff member for 25 years; and club president Patrick Cayen. One of the most memorable lines at the retirement ceremony came from Lemenchick. Knowing Egan’s periodic propensity for shanking the ball, he said, “Henry, SHANKS for the memories.” Egan was joined at the ceremony by his wife Allison, daughter Stephanie, son-in-law Andy and other family members. - With files from the Renfrew Golf Club

Monthly Column by

John YAKABUSKI MPP

www.johnyakabuski.com As stated in my last column, the Ontario budget for 2013/14 was tabled on May 2nd. As predicted, the budget contained measures to satisfy the spending demands of Andrea Horwath and the NDP. In fact, they got pretty well everything they had asked for. However in order to keep the drama going Ms. Horwath engaged in a dance of the seven veils, unwilling to say categorically whether she would support the budget while trying to generate as much news coverage as possible. The suspense was officially ended on May 21st when she announced that the NDP would support the budget. The actual vote on the budget motion took place on Wednesday May 29th and the NDP voted with the government, ensuring that the Liberals would survive. RYLAND COYNE/METROLAND

While I am sure there are many people who will be saying they’re pleased that we will not be having an election, we need to ask ourselves whether the price of an election was worth what this budget will cost you. The budget will mean approximately an additional $1 billion in spending that was previously unplanned. It means that the debt of Ontario will continue to rise. At the end of this fiscal year it will be $273 billion – that’s $20,000 for every man, woman and child living in the province. With the deficit growing to $11.7 billion next year, our provincial debt is rising by over $32 million per day.

Overcoming hurdles at EOSSAA Arnprior District High School athlete Brody Flegal grimaces as he leaps over a hurdle in the 100-metre junior boys qualifier at the Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association (EOSSAA) track and field championships at TISS in Brockville. Flegal finished ninth in a time of 18.21 seconds.

What else did this budget mean? Well the passing of this budget meant that the NDP who railed endlessly, pretending to be as upset as we were about the gas plant scandals, have decided that the $1 billion dollars wasted is not a good enough reason to bring down the government. Over and over we heard in the legislature from the NDP that they believed this government was officially corrupt; that they were unfit to govern. However, when push came to shove they sided with the government as they did last year. It is unlikely now that this government will face a confidence motion until next year’s budget. Let’s hope that they don’t do too much more damage before then. It needs to be put into perspective what the debt and deficit issues in Ontario mean. Unless you eliminate the deficit, you cannot begin to chip away at the massive debt that Ontario now owes. The interest payments alone amount to over $11 billion per year. Only the Ministries of Health and Education have larger budgets than the debt servicing costs. By failing to tackle the debt and deficit problems, this budget runs the real risk of causing our credit rating to drop; further increasing the cost to service the debt. It should be pointed out that while the government agreed to additional spending to appease the third party, they made no attempt to find additional savings within the budget to cover those costs. That is the main reason that the deficit will go up this year, rather than down. It can’t go unmentioned that Ontario’s deficit of $11.7 billion is greater than all other provinces and territories combined. How long can we go on this way without it having a detrimental effect on our ability to function and provide the services that are necessary? Tim Hudak and the Progressive Conservatives have maintained for some time that in order to turn Ontario around, we must get control of our debt and deficit problem. Without a firm commitment to that path we will only see this problem grow. Our children and grandchildren cannot be left to shoulder this burden. This is a time for leadership, and we’re not seeing it from the present government. 0606.R0022067653

The strain of the 3000-metre race shows on the face of midget boys competitor Everett Baird. The Arnprior District High School student finished third in the grueling event, posting a time of 10:01.54 at the EOSSAA track and field championships May 24 in Brockville.

In the EOSSAA junior boys 100-metre hurdles final May 24 in Brockville, Riley McEwan, right, of Arnprior District High School captured fifth place overall in a time of 16.35 seconds. He outran Josh MacMillian, left, of St. Mary’s of Brockville down the stretch for the final spot in the East Regionals meet.

Football team kicks off in Valley EMC sports - One of Canada’s top football teams is making the Ottawa Valley its home. The Ottawa Invaders of the Northern Football Conference, ranked one of the top three semi-pro football teams in Canada over the past two seasons, has moved home games to Beckwith Township. The team’s regular season kicked off Saturday, June 1 at home against the Montreal Transit. Other regular season home games will be against the Durham Hawkeyes June 15, the 2011 national champion Tri-City Outlaws of Kitchener-Waterloo-Guelph on June 22 and the Sudbury Spartans July 20. “This is an exciting opportunity for us to put some roots down in the Ottawa Valley,

which is the heart of football country in the capital region,” said Invaders’ head coach Wayne Jacobs. “We will be bringing a high level of football out to where the fans are, rather than making everyone come downtown.” The Invaders played their first three seasons at Carleton University before moving out to Beckwith. The team has reached the NFC championship game in the past two years. This year, the Invaders have their sights set on an NFC Championship. To make the move even more exciting, the NFC champion will host the 2013 Canadian Major Football League national championship.

While the team is made up primarily of former CIS and junior football stars, some with pro experience, the team has already made connections with the youth football community in West Carleton and the Ottawa Valley. Young players participating in the youth spring league will be playing mini-games as the team’s halftime show for their first game, and the team is allowing all youth players from the spring youth football program into it games free of charge when accompanied by an adult. Single game tickets will be $10 for adults. For more information on the Ottawa Invaders, visit www.ottawainvaders.ca.

“The Board is thrilled to have the support of the Arnprior Lions Club as it will host a barbecue this Saturday, June 8 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the library to launch the new fundraising initiative” says Kirk. “Drop by the library on Saturday for a barbecue lunch and find out how you can contribute to this initiative.” Follow the library on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates on news and events at your library.

Astrolabe visit to mark Champlain’s 400th anniversary Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news – When Samuel de Champlain travelled up the Ottawa River and through this area exactly 400 years ago, he found pristine woodland filled with old-growth pine and challenging rapids. There are several special events happening locally to celebrate the 400th anniversary of when Champlain, a famous French navigator, cartographer, draughtsman, soldier, explorer, geographer, ethnologist, diplomat and chronicler travelled through and stayed over in the Ottawa Valley. Champlain founded New France and Quebec City in 1608, and has a storied local history that includes a centuries-old astrolabe discovered near Cobden that may or may not have belonged to the explorer. That very artifact will be visiting Arnprior soon, much to the delight of local history buffs. Champlain is our founding father, said Terry Currie of the Fitzroy Township Historical Society. “On June 4, 1613, Champlain and his party of six landed on Mohr Island off MacLaren’s Landing and on June 5 they portaged around Chats Falls on the Quebec side,” said Currie. The group then travelled to what is now Portage-duFort and up to Muskrat Lake, where the astrolabe was reportedly lost.

Champlain’s entourage consisted of four French men and one Algonquin. “His intent was to establish relations with the Algonquins at Alumet Island,” said Currie. Specifically, Champlain was looking for a road to Hudson Bay, where the best furs could be found. “The French didn’t come to conquer, they came to Christianize and to commercialize,” explained Currie. The Algonquins didn’t want Champlain linking up with the Huron natives, recounts Currie, and persuaded him to return to Montreal rather than travel ahead to Hudson’s Bay. “He actually left one of his French companions with the Algonquins to learn the language,” said Currie. He also invited some young Algonquins to return to Montreal. Currie is among the nonbelievers when it comes to the found astrolabe being Champlain’s. Champlain was the son of a wealthy family, reportedly a relative of the King of France, and would have had much better equipment than the one that is touted as his, said Currie. An interesting note, he added, is that Champlain’s birth notice was recently discovered in a town west of France. HISTORIC ASTROLABE COMING TO MUSEUM

Arnprior and District Museum curator Janet Carlile wanted to recognize the anniversary in a special way.

Samuel de Champlain, one of Canada’s greatest explorers, travelled through these parts 400 years ago. The anniversary is being marked by special events, including an astrolabe exhibit at the Arnprior Museum June 15-17. “I thought it was a good idea to try to so something,” she said. And while doing something on the same level as the 2010 Prince and the Prior reenactment commemorating the 150th anniversary of the visit of the Prince of Wales to Arnprior was out of reach, the astrolabe’s visit to the museum June 15-17 is a boon for the area. “It’s a real feather in Arn-

prior’s hat to be able to get this here,” said Carlile. “It’s big stuff. I hope we have a lot of people come out.” The quest to secure the special item for its two-day visit started about a year ago when Carlile contacted Canadian Museum of Civilization director Mark O’Neill and several other industry officials to see about the possibility of hosting the special item. Now belonging to the

CMC, the astrolabe was found in the 1830s. There is some controversy over whether this particular astrolabe was the one Champlain’s diaries describe him losing near a small lake close to Cobden, said Carlile, but there’s no doubt it dates back a long time. “It’s a 406-year-old astrolabe,” said Carlile. “There’s no question as to the age that it is. As to whether or not it belonged to Champlain, who knows.” Because it is such a significant piece of Canadian history, special attention will be paid to security. “The police have been notified and security plans will be in place,” said Carlile. The museum will host a special opening at the start of the visit. )“We’re hoping to have someone from CMC come to speak about it, which will be very fun,” said Carlile. The item itself has a storied history since its discovery. “It was sold by the people who discovered it for $10, along with some silver,” explains Carlile. It was part of a private collection in the United States for some time and then left to the New York historical society. From there the CMC obtained it, said Carlile, with funding from a private Ottawa company. Algonquin College students will put together a story board that will be on display alongside the astrolabe and the museum’s Eastern Woodland

First Nations’ pottery will be on display nearby. “It’s from the same time period and will help put things into context for people,” said Carlile. The visit may lead to another special acquisition for the museum. “We may be able to get a replica of it for one of our new exhibits,” said Carlile. The astrolabe is visiting only two Valley museums. It will be at the Champlain Trail Museum in Pembroke prior to coming to Arnprior. “We’re very lucky to have it for the length of time that we do,’ said Carlile. RIVERDRIVE DISPLAY

Among the local nods to the anniversary will be a Champlain-themed virtual display at the June 29 McNab Days Riverdrive festival, courtesy of the Arnprior-McNab-Braeside Archives. Charles Macnamara (18701944) who was recognized locally and internationally for his work as an experimental photographer, entomologist and field naturalist in the early years of the 20th century, avidly studied Champlain and even interviewed Edward Lee, the boy who found the astrolabe in Cobden, said archivist Laurie Dougherty. “He did lots of research about Champlain. MacNamara was so excited about Lee’s recollection of the event. He goes into some detail,” said Dougherty.

Proposed law would prohibit Quebec workers on Ontario construction sites move snow instead of Ontario truck drivers. Although the Parti Quebecois government’s inclination is toward protectionism, the province is reeling from a corruption scandal involving construction companies and may move toward cleaning up the rules in the future.

Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – It’s a bill likely unite all three parties at Queen’s Park even if critics say it will divide Canadians. Jack MacLaren says he is getting plenty of support all around for his private member’s bill to prevent Quebec construction companies from bidding on Ontario contracts. The PC MPP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills introduced the Fairness is a Two-Way Street Act in the legislature on May 29. It made it through the first reading. Although private member’s bills rarely become law, he is confident this one – similar to one passed when Mike Harris was premier in 1999, but killed by the Liberals in 2006 – will. “I think we’ll get support from all three parties,” MacLaren said. “They realize it is not fair.” If the bill makes it past third reading, construction projects on the Ontario side will be off limits to Quebecers. While there is no formal ban of Ontario contractors on the Quebec side, FRIDAY, JUNE 7TH TO THURSDAY, JUNE 13TH 2013 MacLaren said he hears regularly from 245 DANIEL ST., ARNPRIOR locals who find the red tape and other hurdles make it next to impossible to win Quebec contracts. “It’s a bit of tit for tat,” he added. “We are protecting our rights and Ontario jobs.” Critics say it is unconservative to promote what amounts to protectionism. MacLaren appears willing to take the heat to force Quebec’s hand. He said if they make it easier for Ontario contractors, he is willing to do the same for Quebec’s. Ottawa is lucrative for Quebec contractors with hospitals, businesses and more needing work done from time to time, and especially Ottawa’s $2.1 million light-rail project. If the law comes into effect, companies that break it could face a fine up to $25,000 a day; workers could be on the hook for $2,000 per day. Among those that would have to change its ways is the City of Ottawa. 60 STAYE COURT DR, ARNPRIOR Last year it hired 30 Quebecers to re-

Once given a chance dandelions had a place at the table at Mother and Father as if we were watching someone in a tennis match. I didn’t think Father was going to win this one! The subject under discussion was dandelions. They covered what we called a lawn, but was really just our front yard, since we didn’t own a lawn mower, but when the grass got too high, one of the brothers tackled it with a scythe. It was hard to tell what was grass and what was dandelions. On the way to school that morning, I asked my much older and wiser sister Audrey if she ever heard of anyone eating dandelions. She said she had. Once at her friend Iva’s house. She couldn’t remember what they tasted like. Now, it wasn’t unusual for Father to whip up a German meal. In fact, we all enjoyed what he cooked ... all except fried blood pudding, which I even had trouble looking at when it came to the table. When he fried sauerkraut, it never tasted at all like the batch Mother would make. FaR0012143455

EMC lifestyle – “Woman, we have been eatin’ those on this here farm for a hundred years,” Father said to Mother. I could see Mother wasn’t impressed. “They’re weeds, Albert,” she said. “Plain and simple weeds. I never heard of anyone eating weeds!” We were at the breakfast table. And we five children were looking

ther would rinse it many times, put it in a fry pan with butter and chopped onions, and it wasn’t ready to eat until it had turned a golden brown. His German potato pancakes were usually made on a Sunday night. The potatoes were shredded, rinsed, squeezed dry, and then mixed with eggs and, of course, chopped onions. We kept him busy at the Findlay Oval turning out his pancakes, barely giving him time to eat them himself, we loved them so much. Of course, they were well lathered with butter and maple syrup too. And now it was dandelions. Well, I was with Mother on this one! I had no desire to eat weeds that were pulled out of the front yard where goodness knows what animal had trampled all over them. No siree. That Saturday morning Father ordered the boys to meet him in the yard with their jack-knives. He was carrying a milk pail and got down on his knees right in the middle of the yard, and showed the brothers how to dig up a dandelion, right down to, and including the root. It didn’t take long to fill the milk pail. He hauled the pail over to the cement step at the pump and filled it with water. He sloshed the dandelions around with his arm in the pail up to his elbow, dumped the water out, and repeated the performance. Mother was standing at the kitchen door with her farms folded across her chest, as if defying Father to bring the weeds into the house. Well, that’s exactly what he intended on doing. He laid out a spanking clean tea towel on the bake table, and shook what water he could off the dandelions and laid them out flat,

cutting off the long roots. Then he folded the towel over the pile of weeds and patted it with his flattened hand. What amazed me, was that all the time this was going on, there wasn’t a word spoken between Mother and Father. It was as if they hadn’t laid eyes on each in their entire lives. Father took down a big pot from the shelf over the stove and piled in the dandelions. He poured in a scant dipper of water, sprinkled in a handful of salt, and slid the pot to the front of the Findlay Oval. Then he went over to his rocking chair, lit his pipe, crossed his legs, and waited. The table had already been set for dinner ... we always had dinner at noon hour ... supper was what we had at night, and Mother had roast pork and potatoes in the oven. And it looked very much like we had a choice ... either eat the dandelions as a vegetable, or settle for sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Father was certainly in charge of the big pot, already boiling gently on the stove. Mother was having nothing to do with it. He tested the innards with a fork, and when they were done to his liking, he poured the dandelions into the sieve, pressed them down with the wood spoon, and plopped them

EMC news – The Bonnechere Manor long-term care home in Renfrew has recently received a three-year certificate with the distinction of ‘Accredited with Commendation’. Accreditation Canada completed the onsite review last Nov. 14 with a follow-up report required from Bonnechere Manor by the end of April. As a result of the report re-

viewed by Accreditation Canada’s decision committee, it was determined what would be awarded. With four possible accreditation decisions, Bonnechere Manor received the second highest distinction. Those who receive accreditation are surveyed every three to four years.

into a big bowl. He took the wood spoon, dug it into the butter dish, almost emptying it, and swirled it into the dandelions. He set the bowl in the middle of the table, and we all looked at it, no one daring to be the first one to dig in. Emerson, the most daring of the lot of us, took his fork, and tested one boiled leaf. I never took my eyes off him. He rolled it around in his mouth, and reached out for the bowl, ladling a heaping pile on his plate. “Just as good as your potato pancakes,” he said. Well, it didn’t take long for the rest of us to take a small bite, which led to us piling the dandelions on our plates and even Mother dared to taste a fork full. It didn’t take long for Mother to admit that the dandelions had a place on our dinner table. She did demand to oversee the washing of every last leaf, however. From that Saturday, like Father’s potato pancakes and fried sauerkraut, his boiled dandelions often found their way to our plates. She did, however, draw the line on eating the fried roots. Father said she didn’t know what she was missing. “I’ll take that chance,” Mother replied.

“This certificate shows that we care about our resident and patient safety and in providing quality service,” said Bonnechere Manor administrator Shayne Hoelke. “It means that we were assessed by our peers, met or exceeded national standards of excellence and continue to strive for high quality health care.” Hoelke thanked all of the residents, families, staff and stakeholders in helping to achieve the high standard of excellence. “We strive to maintain our mission statement, ‘Bonnechere Manor, a safe and caring community to live, work and enjoy life’.” Accreditation Canada is a notfor-profit independent organization accredited by the International Society for Quality in Health Care. Accreditation is one of the most effective ways for organizations to regularly and consistently examine and improve the R0012141947 quality of services.

Keep the Wheels Turning mail-out campaign launched Liz Wall Seniors at Home

EMC lifestyle – Ten thousand and counting! That is how many trips our Care Coach Para Transit vehicle has been on since it started operating in 2008. “We are very proud of this accomplishment as well of the financial support Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors At Home Program has received for the past five years from the communities we serve,” said executive director Dennis Harrington. Our Care Coach Para Transit is the only specialized transportation service for persons of all ages in Arnprior and McNab-Braeside and the operation relies totally on local fundraising. Last year we launched our first mail out campaign, the ‘Yellow Envelope Mail-Out’ titled ‘Keep the Wheels Turning’. Due to its success (we raised $30,000), we are once again approaching this crucial fundraiser with a mail-out campaign titled ‘Keep the Wheels Turning’ to be delivered to all homes within the town limits of Arnprior, McNab-Braeside and areas of West Carleton including Fitzroy Harbour, Kinburn, Woodlawn and Constance Bay

FUTURE SHOP CORRECTION NOTICE

NEWSPAPER RETRACTION FOR THE FUTURE SHOP MAY 31 CORPORATE FLYERPleasebeadvisedthattheCanon 20.2MPFull-Frame DSLR Camera Kit (EOS 6D) (WebCode: 10224247) will not be in stock due to an inventory delay. Stock is expected to arrive later in the week. Customers may take rainchecks for the duration of the flyer period.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

Right now in our communities, seniors and individuals of all ages with special needs require the use of the Para Transit Care Coach. Since Feb. 4, 2008 a total of 6,281 trips have been provided to those citizens requiring the use of a wheelchair and 3,888 to other clients of which 1,015 was for out-of-town trips. These are the folks that depend on the service the Para Transit Care Coach provides. The actual count 10,169, as of this May, covered trips in Arnprior, McNab-Braeside, Renfrew, Pembroke, North Bay, Fitzroy Harbor, Pakenham, Dunrobin, Constance Bay, Almonte and Ottawa. Your generosity is necessary to make sure this essential service remains active and viable in our community. “At age 86, now living in the Arnprior Villa, I know I can rely on my art and poetry writing to fill my days, but the joy of having the Care Coach available for me to attend special grandkids’ births or celebratory family anniversary gatherings, touches me greatly. The Villa is now my home away from home and when I require transportation the drivers are constantly able to bring their own joy to me, as well as others, with the non-worried attitude we encompass when these caring efficient drivers take us to-and-fro to many appointments. ‘Keep the Wheels Turning’ for sure.” Mrs. Norma Dixon. We thank you in advance for your

Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors At Home Keep the Wheels Turning campaign received a great start thanks to Local CUPE 2198 presenting a $2,000 cheque to executive director Dennis Harrington.

Credit card donations can be made by calling 613-622-CARE (2273) between 8:30 a.m, and 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. We thank the following business folks as this campaign is brought to you in part due to their generosity and support: McDonald’s Arnprior, Reid Bros., PCS Computers, Seller’s Choice broker of record Ted Kelly,

Royal LePage sales representative and auctioneer John O’Neill, Bernice Horne of Century 21, Mulvihill & Murray, and Tosh Steakhouse & Bar. Since our campaign kicked off May 30, we are very pleased to announce it has received support in a huge way in the way of a $2,000 donation from members of CUPE Local 2198 of the Arnprior Regional Hospital. “Thank you to all members of CUPE Local 2198. Your generous gift is appreciated by our agency and those who rely on our services,” said Harrington.

Oh happy day: Bruno finally finds a forever home John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

SYDNEY ROSS

Bruno: adopted at last

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Break out the champagne. Brunoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been adopted. After living for the past two-and-a-half years at the Arnprior and District Humane Society shelter, Bruno has found a forever home. The Bull Mastiff mix that was found straying along Highway 17 between Arnprior and Renfrew more than two years ago was the subject of a concentrated effort to adopt him by the Humane Society and his many fans.

Despite their best efforts, and a story in March in the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide, Bruno remained at the shelter. That is, until the Victoria Day long weekend in May. Michael, touched by big Brunoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plight, agreed to take Bruno home for the weekend to see if could possibly be a fit in his home. Not only has Bruno not been back to the shelter, his new owner, through Facebook updates, reports he is â&#x20AC;&#x153;doing amazing.â&#x20AC;? Michael has found Bruno to be fun, mild-mannered, curious and adjusting extremely

well to his new home. He loves going on long walks and during a weekend visit to the cottage he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;the happiest dog Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen.â&#x20AC;? Arnprior Humane Society president Brenda Ambrose says Brunoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many fans at the shelter are delighted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thrilled to death,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting that after two-and-

a-half years, hopes that Bruno would ever be adopted were fading. Meanwhile, Michael has thanked the shelter for taking such good care of Bruno and giving him a chance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so hard to believe that amazing, fun-loving dogs like him are euthanized at other places,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for your

dedication, support, and love of animals, I would never have been connected with the greatest dog ever. Thank you so much.â&#x20AC;? There is a chance Bruno may be back to see his shelter friends Sunday, June 23 to take part in the humane societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk in the Park Walkathon at Robert Simpson Park.

Walk in the park for the pets June 23 2-km or 5-km walks or just show up in support and enjoy the day, the animals and the Bark Bar-B-Q in the park. Pledge forms are available at the shelter on Didak Drive and at Pet Valu stores in Arnprior and Renfrew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Help raise money for our furry friends.â&#x20AC;?

Ah! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summertime and the livinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is easy, but protect your pets EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The smell of the grill at dinnertime, quiet walks along the beach and bragging about the one that got away. Weekends away at the cottage, summers greatest escape from the hectic work week and then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fido. No reason Fido canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy the same stress-free weekend or weeklong getaway with the family. Plan ahead and enjoy a pet safe holiday. First and foremost, make sure that your pet is up-todate on all its shots and vaccinations. Make sure that your pet has a name tag including a contact phone number. Always be prepared for the unexpected: make sure you have a pet first aid kit in your vehicle, boat at your cottage/ camp site and with you on long walks. Locate the nearest emergency veterinarian in the area. Call them and inquire about their hours of operation and mention that you will on vacation. Make sure you have all of your pets medication(s). Bring extra in case your pet is less than cooperative or if you drop them. It would be hard to get to a veterinarian when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out in the middle of nowhere. Keep emergency veterinarian phone numbers with you all the time. You should also check the weather. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to bring your pet along if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP have to endure unusually cold weather or extreme heat. Do not change your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s routine. For example, if your pet is used to sleeping in a kennel at night or if your pet has a favorite toy, bring it with you. It can help provide your pet with some familiarity in a new and temporary environment. Chances are your pet is going to be in and out of the water, rolling around in beach sand or rolling around in brush or a pile of leaves. Therefore, I would recommend speaking with your veterinarian regarding flea and tick protection. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, dogs poop, the question is what are you going to do with your animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waste? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the inconsiderate, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the camper who lets pets relieve themselves and then kicks some dirt or leaves over it and walks away. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

sure to turn into an unpleasant experience for another camper. Be prepared. Bring plenty of small plastic bags to pick up waste and a sealed container to dispose of it. This will keep the unpleasant smell from overtaking your campsite. Store your animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food in a sealed container to keep the bugs out. Bugs can soil food, and your pet could get sick. Depending where your cottage or campsite is located, storing your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food in a sealed container away from the cottage or camp site will deter unwanted guests from entering your main living area. You also need to keep a water source nearby and accessible to your pet at all times. If you do intend to spend lots of time on the water, just remember that your pet can tire just as easily as you can. Watch out for fast moving water that can easily pull Fido out into deeper water or worse pull your pet under. Always have a life jacket on your pet when boating, keep your pet away from the prop of the boat and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let your pet swim after a meal. Common sense will prevent tragedy.

In loving memory of Michael Fenton Who passed away June 6, 2012 in his 47th year. Dear Dad, I can’t believe it has been a year since you left me. I was so devastated. You were my father and friend all in one. You were taken from me too soon, but I guess God is the only one who knows when it is our time to go. The time we shared together and the love that you showed me as a father, I will never forget for as long as I live. Unfortunately, you left this world before you met your grandson. But, I will make sure that Bentley Michael knows what a loving and caring person you were. When I feel really sad and missing you, I remember when you’d come to pick me up and I would jump into your arms and you would make me feel safe and loved. Oh Dad, you will always be in my heart and in my soul. Love Kylie, Bentley and Aunt

EMC entertainment - The Renfrew County Fiddlers are celebrating 35 years of promoting and assisting the advancement of fiddle and all forms of old time music. In June 1978, Joe Quilty, known for his love of old time music and an excellent lifetime fiddle player himself, decided to reintroduce the Valley Heritage fiddling, stepping and square-dancing back throughout the Ottawa Valley. With the help of his wife Madge, Ed Mayhew, George Thacker, Mike Quilty, Reg Hill, L.J. Helferty, Tom Sharbot and Debbie Emon, they formed the Renfrew County Fiddlersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association. Throughout the years, the association has held many fiddling jamborees, as well as fiddling and step dancing competitions, fiddle workshops and square dancing lessons. Many trophies were handed out during those 35 years. Trophies still are provided for the Grand Master Fiddle Championships and the Pembroke Fiddle & Step-dancing competitions.

• June 14 – 17 The astrolabe that Samuel de Champlain purportedly used during his journey was lost near a small lake close to Cobden. Found in the 1830s and eventually acquired by the museum of civilization in Hull, this astrolabe will be visiting the Arnprior and District Museum for four days. On June 5, 1613 as Samuel de Champlain, French Explorer and cartographer, travelled up the Ottawa River he recorded in his journal that he entered a lake following a portage past rapids and saw a river that flowed into the lake from the south. Four hundred years later that lake is known as Chats Lake, the rapids have been converted into the Fitzroy Harbour hydro-electric dam and the river to the south is named the Madawaska. Samuel de Champlain was the first European to describe Chats Lake, later to be the waterfront of Arnprior. Please contact Janet for more information at 613- 623- 4902.

June is Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Month, an opportunity for all Ontarians to recognize and value the contributions made by seniors every day in communities across the province. Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Month is an annual celebratory tradition in which the contributions of seniors are acknowledged and honoured throughout the province. Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population aged 65 and over is projected to more than double from 1.8 million, or 13.7 per cent of the population in 2009 to 4.1 million, or 23.2 per cent, in 2036. The growth in seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; share of the population will accelerate after 2011 as baby boomers begin to turn age 65. Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Month events include award ceremonies, recognition events, socials and seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; information fairs. Ontario is one of the best places in the world to grow older. Ontarians across the province are encouraged to join in the celebrations taking place in their local community to recognize and thank older Ontarians who have worked hard and continue to contribute to the prosperity that we all enjoy today. 56 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, June 6, 2013
