EMC news – A deal for recreation and library services between Arnprior and McNab-Braeside is closer to reality, but neither side is really happy with the latest changes. However, with pressure growing from families fearful they will lose use of the Nick Smith Centre’s rinks and pool, both councils compromised this week. The ball is now back in Arnprior’s court, with council expected to decide at Monday’s regular meeting whether it will accept the township’s response. While McNab-Braeside council has accepted the town’s revised offer for 2012 and 2013, its reluctance to commit to a longer term and requests for better accounting of users may be a sticking point for Arnprior. The concern of parents and young players was expressed in a noisy fashion at a rally outside McNab-Braeside council chambers Tuesday (see Page 3). At the meeting, council engaged in a lengthy discussion about the issue, passing and rejecting several motions that seem to indicate its position was softening. However, efforts by councillors Aldene Styles and Brad McIlquaham to have council accept

Arnprior’s revised offer for this year and next met with failure until a break in the action. It almost didn’t get that far, as loud chanting of ‘Save our Sports’ threatened to drown out the council meeting. After a threat to adjourn the meeting by Mayor Mary Campbell, the protesters keep their ruckus outside, which was fortunate for their cause. After the debate on the issue, Campbell moved up the public comment part of the meeting to the mid-way point, noting it was getting late and there were many children in the crowd. An appeal by township recreation committee member Brian Armsden for council to reconsider was acted upon, with Styles re-moving her motion that council accept Arnprior’s offer for 2013 to give the town time to provide proper user numbers. Armsden argued that in defeating a similar motion at a special meeting last week, Coun. Robert Campbell had argued Arnprior would have to compromise before he supported any deal and that Mayor had voted against, citing opposition to paying for a survey (originally a referendum) that was part of the motion. See McNAB-BRAESIDE, Page 5

Happy 150th birthday, Arnprior: Let’s party John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

It’s finally here! Have a great time this weekend at all the celebrations planned for Arnprior’s 150th birthday.

EMC events – Arnprior, are you ready to have a good time? The town is pulling out all the stops to celebrate its 150th birthday this weekend (June 8-10). A large number of free events, most with an historical flair, are expected to attract large crowds to town and in particular Robert Simpson Park, the headquarters for all the fun. “It’s great to see the community coming together for this,” said Arnprior 150 Committee chair Lynn Grinstead. “It’s your town. We need to celebrate it,” she added, urging all Arnprior residents to take in the festivities. “We’re a town of 8,000 people, so I’d hope we’ll have thousands of people

The Chronicle Guide EMC is marking the 150 anniversary by including a 28-page third section in this edition chock full of historical information and photographs provided by the Arnprior 150 Committee.

roaming around town this weekend,” she said. “It’s going to be a homecoming for a lot of people,” Grinstead said. “It will be like a big reunion.” Arnprior is paying tribute to its history by creating an old-fashioned country fair atmosphere in town. Heritage displays, plays, antique equipment and lumberjack shows will mix with continuous entertainment, art-

work and games and amusements. A late addition is a Kiddie Commando Centre being set up at Robert Simpson Park by soldiers from Base Petawawa. Featuring an obstacle course to challenge the younger set, it will be in operation from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday. “We’ve tried to provide something for all ages,” said Grinstead, noting the variety of entertainment reflects that. She is optimistic the combina-

tion of Kyle Felhaver’s fiddling and step-dancing (7-9 p.m.) and Catalyst’s classic rock (9:30-on) at the free Barn Dance at the Arnprior Fairgrounds Saturday will attract a wide variety of music-lovers. A who’s who of local musicians, from Arnprior favourite Spirit of 69 to comedian Casey Corbin, will take turns on the stage at Robert Simpson Park Saturday and Sunday afternoons in a series of free concerts. “We’ve got some many great acts,” said Grinstead. She reminded people to bring a portable chair if taking in the entertainment. “It’s a great way for families to sit back and relax between the other events,” she said. See GO BACK Page 2

Go back in time at Arnprior’s 150th this weekend Continued from front

The Arnprior Museum will set up a Pioneer Village/general store in Robert Simpson Park and will show off the contents of the 125th anniversary capsule in its quarters. The Arnprior fire department will hold an open house in the fire hall Saturday with the 1928 fire truck, the subject of a restoration project, to be one of the attractions. A large number of people have volunteered to dress in period costume to add to the heritage atmosphere. The St. John Chrysostom’s CWL is holding a pie-baking contest. Grinstead said interest in the Arnprior Legion parade was slow early on, but in the last week or two has “blossomed.” It will start at 10:30 a.m. near the police station and head down John Street before veering off just before the park. Another highlight will be the opening ceremonies at noon Saturday with the presentation of the Senior of Year award to Doug Scheels and a Mile High parachute jump. Wild West and lumberjack shows are set for 1 p.m. in the park. McNab-Braeside’s contribution will be horse and buggy rides on the Galilee Centre property from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Prior Players will give 2 and 4 p.m. performances of a play Saturday featuring the mayors of Arnprior and McNab-Braeside on stage together to help the cast bring the history of the area to life. The play will be held at the Christian Education Centre. While there are some similarities between the events Saturday and Sunday (the lumberjack show will return and the Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a dunk tank both days), there are several new offerings, said Grinstead. They include a joint church service (10:30 a.m.), Voyageur canoe rides (noon-3 p.m.), Stone Fence theatre’s tribute to Mac Beattie (1 p.m.) and the closing ceremonies (3:30 p.m.) featuring Arnprior’s own Dennis Harrington. The committee received the Arnprior 150 commemorative books this week just in time for the celebration. They will be available in the park for $5 this weekend. “We purposely kept the cost low so everyone could afford one,” said Grinstead. There will also be Arnprior 150 pins, ball hats and golf shirts for sale. Joining Grinstead on the Arnprior 150 Committee are Glenn Arthur, Betty Fevreau, Jason Marshall, Natascha Smith, Sandra Stott, Arden Robitaille and Mayor David Reid, For more on the celebration that kicks off with an outdoor family movie night in the park starting at 8 p.m. this Friday, visit www.arnprior.ca/150th.

Voices raised, heard at recreation rally

Sherry Haaima

Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news - It appears a rally Tuesday designed to urge McNab-Braeside council to rethink their position on recreation and library agreements with the Town of Arnprior may have just worked. After several motions, some passed, some not, council ďŹ nally agreed to accept Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revised offer, albeit only for the next two years, not until 2016 as the town wants. At the peak of the rally outside township headquarters, it appeared about 200 people were gathered in the parking lot and in council chambers. The movementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s momentum has been gathering since township council rejected a deal with Arnprior and indicated it would go to a modiďŹ ed user fee system instead of a lump sum payment allowing township residents to use the Nick Smith Centre rinks and pool without a surcharge. HIGHER TAXES

However, accepting the steep increase asked by Arnprior would no doubt lead to signiďŹ cant property tax increases for township residents, said council. But the increased costs for users means not only that ice sports and other activities in Arnprior will become too expensive for many residents but that the programs themselves are in jeopardy of even

teams. Arnprior kids will suffer in the end, too, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a team to play because there are not enough players,â&#x20AC;? said Ogilvie. People held signs, there were several informal speeches and a ball hockey game was played during the rally. Chants, including â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;save our sportsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;save our libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; were shouted towards

the door of council chambers, which was opened repeatedly by protesters. At one point, township Mayor Mary Campbell threatened to adjourn the meeting because the noise was drowning out councillors attempting to do regular business. However, cooler heads prevailed and the door-opening was stopped. See FIGURE Page 5

McNab-Braeside accepts lump sum for next two years, by mayor not happy Continued from front

“Arnprior has made significant concessions … and if someone makes the motion against without including the survey, it should pass 41,” he said. Campbell admitted she had indicated she would change her vote if the survey aspect was dropped. When the motion came up for a vote, it passed 3-2 with Coun. Campbell and Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie voting against. However, the mayor made it clear she wasn’t happy with the result. “I voted for it because I gave my word,” she said. “But this is not a good decision for the township … so don’t clap,” she told the happy crowd. “We’re not going to get out of this hole unless we have a per unit rate.” She said that Arnprior keeps making “expensive recreation decisions” and will continue to send McNab-

buying,” she said. Accepting Arnprior’s full offer would mean a major increase in property taxes, perhaps as much as 15 per cent, she said. Both she and the mayor said that while the people at the meeting are vocal, they are hearing from many ratepayers opposed to boosting taxes to pay more for Arnprior recreation facilities and programs. Styles argued that the best solution would be to accept Arnprior’s offer for now so not to suddenly disadvantage users and work out a long-term policy once all the impacts of the user pay, lump sum and subsidy options were determined. In its revised offer, Arnprior agreed the new agreement should start July 1 instead of being retroactive to Jan. 1 and that the deal can be cancelled in the first year with only three months notice. That would allow for a “cool-

ing-off period” to let minor sports organizations plan their upcoming winter season, said Arnprior Mayor David Reid. Mayor Campbell agreed a decision, even if it’s a temporary one, needed to be made quickly. “We don’t want to leave our parents hanging out to dry,” she said. “They need to plan their lives.” Arnprior also reduced the increase slightly in what it is asking for library services. McNab-Braeside agreed to offer to pay $45 a user household to the library instead of the $60 requested, but with the proviso staff could peruse the library records on site to get a better handle on how many township users there are. Council agreed to get the money to pay the extra needed to continue the agreements this year from capital reserves. However, that will have to be paid back in next year’s budget. R0011434348

Figure skaters, ringette players also speak up

Braeside the bill unless a formula based on users is worked out. Campbell reiterated through the debate that the issue was not so much money, but how it should be spent. She said the township should be allocating a significant amount of its recreation budget to its own programs, attempting to provide options for those many residents who do not play organized sports, either because they don’t have the inclination or can’t afford it. An earlier motion passed, then overridden would have had McNab-Braeside pay Arnprior based on only township users under 18 and over 65. Blimkie continued to insist she would not support a deal with Arnprior until the town provided verifiable numbers of township users. “I can’t support this if I don’t know what we’re

Perched atop a picnic bench, Mark McKenzie welcomed supporters and explained that a petition (to be signed by township voters only) and sign-up sheet were being circulated. “It’ll take a lot of people to get this done so the council really understands how many people want this agreement,” he said. Not just hockey is in jeopardy, said rally participants. “Without our McNab neighbours it would make it next to impossible to keep this club running as we do now,” said Arnprior Figure Skating Club president Jeff Clattenburg. “In order for our club to be successful, we need this area. “Last year the Arnprior Figure Skating Club had 131 kids registered in various programs, 62 of them were from McNab-Braeside. Our current executive has 11 members, six of them are from McNab.” A recent ball hockey program was much the same. “There were 12 kids in the program, six from the township,” said Clattenburg, so again if we don’t have these kids we can’t run these programs The situation is much the same in ringette, said Stacey McGregor. “I know for a fact we have all kinds of players in McNabBraeside,” he said. “Without a doubt that program will not run if we don’t have an agreement,” said McGregor. Madawaska Girls Hockey faces the same challenges and although no one spoke formally to the library, rally organizers pointed out library services and activities for seniors are also in danger of being cancelled. Wanda Quade of Wabalac Road is a mother of three who rallied with her children. “It would be nice if they could come to an agreement,” said Quade. “It’s the kids who are going to suffer.” She believes many township residents would live with a tax increase if it meant helping kids stay active. “It’s very little on our taxes,” said Quade.

Funding disparities in the classroom The first of a three-part series looks at the inequities in educational opportunities throughout Ontario By Kristen Calis, Jessica Cunha and Rosie-Ann Grover

n an affluent neighbourhood in the nation’s capital, a school that the prime minister’s children once attended is flush with cash.The money comes from serious fundraising that brings in $60,000 just in pizza lunches and a well-attended book fair. Rockcliffe Park Public School – a kindergarten to Grade 6 school with a large proportion of children from area embassies – does not disclose the total it brings in through fundraising by its heavily involved parents, students and teachers. But school council minutes show it had more than enough to spend $12,000 on hip-hop and drumming sessions for the arts program, a cricket skills tune-up and new equipment for the gym. Funds from the book fair covered the $5,000 for this year’s author workshop. It brings writers such as Alphabeasts sensation Wallace Edwards, a Governor General’s Award winner, to the school for – as the website puts it – “the extraordinary experience to have the opportunity to converse with an author of a book you have just read and loved!” Five kilometres away, at Queen Mary Street Public School, celebrated author meet-ups just don’t happen. This school, where the majority of students are from homes where English is a second language, is lucky if it raises $500 in a year, says Chris Ellis, who sits on four Ottawa school councils. Any fundraising proceeds that do come in go to the deficit-ridden milk program or to subsidize field trips for families struggling on an average parent income of $29,000, compared with $155,000 at Rockcliffe Park (figures from the Fraser Institute). An Arabic- and Somali-speaking multicultural liaison officer comes to Queen Mary twice a week. “Most of the schools that I’m directly involved with are schools that all struggle to raise funds,” Ellis says. “They’re dealing with communities that don’t have the capacity to raise funds, which is the irony of it; the schools that are most challenged – and you could arguably say

have the greatest need for additional resources – are the very schools that find it hard to raise funds.” Similar disparities exist across Ontario, where the top 10 per cent of fundraising schools bring in the same amount of money as the bottom 75 per cent combined, according to People for Education’s 2012 report on Ontario’s publicly funded schools. “You can see in that way how big the gap is,” says Annie Kidder, executive director of the parent-led organization. Society, not just parents, needs to be concerned with the gap.

How much money do Ontario schools fundraise? Many boards don’t want to say. Metroland surveyed 28 English public and Catholic school boards across Ontario and found more than half were reluctant to provide financial information. Fundraising is a sensitive issue, especially when disclosure of inequities is possible. In Waterloo, a public school board representative declined to provide a breakdown of funds raised, saying it would allow the public to see disparities. In Hamilton’s public board, teachers and principals were given scripts on how to respond to Metroland reporters. Only 11 of the 28 school boards surveyed provided their fundraising total. Fundraising in those boards pumped $26 million into their 788 schools. The re-

Fundraising is defined in this report as an activity in the school community conducted by parents, students and/or staff to raise funds for the benefit of the school and students.

“It’s the next generation of society that’s being educated,” she says. “It will have an impact on everybody.” It means that schools with the ability to raise large sums can significantly enrich their students’ education with hightech learning aids such as laptops and SMART Boards. But in many schools, fundraising isn’t just for the frills. It’s for classroom basics such as air conditioning and books or breakfast programs. A survey of 28 school boards for this Metroland Special Report turned up fundraising gaps as large as half a million dollars between schools in the same board. It also underscored how firmly money from bake sales, car washes and other fundraising has become entrenched in the education system. Concern is growing about the overuse of fundraising – and the disparities it creates – at a time when public money is tightening under the McGuinty government’s austerity drive. And despite the province’s introduction last month of the first-ever guidelines for fundraising, there still are no formal rules, in the form of province-wide regulations, to govern the vast amounts of money collected.

maining 17 boards provided only a broad figure that includes fundraising but is mixed in with other revenue (see chart). In boards that provided school-by-school breakdowns, there are significant gaps in money raised. In Halton’s public board, half a million dollars separates White Oaks Secondary in Oakville, which raised $511,000 last year, from Acton District High School, which took in just $8,000. There’s a significant difference in the size of the schools (2,100 at White Oaks; 546 in the small community of Acton) but the Acton school took in proportionally less. In York, more than $125,000 separates two elementary schools within the same board. St. Clare Catholic School, located in a wealthy Woodbridge neighbourhood, brought in $131,000. In a less affluent area in Markham, St. Francis Xavier Catholic Elementary School raised just $4,000. At Hamilton’s St. Joseph Catholic elementary school where parent involvement is high, the school took in $192,000. Five kilometres away in the north end of the city, St. Lawrence elementary brought in $9,800. Critics, school associations

and parents say the need to fundraise is the result of inadequate funding, making it necessary for schools to bulk up on private dollars, sometimes even for the basics. “Fundraising is so political. It’s basically a fallout. It’s a symptom of a bigger issue in public education,” says Catherine Fife, president of the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association, which has been calling for a funding model review for a number of years. Education Minister Laurel Broten says Ontario increased education funding to $20.3 billion in the 2010-11 school year, an increase of $6.5 billion – or 45 per cent – since 2003, excluding capital programs. “Fundraising proceeds

should only be used to complement dollars of public investment to the schools and to the education system,” Broten says. “The Ministry of Education funds directly many programs and investments where we seek to ensure we have an equitable education system; our results are demonstrating that.” NDP education critic Peter Tabuns says students attending schools with the ability to fundraise large amounts will likely have better music and art classes, more computers and school trips. “You’ll see a richer educational experience for the children, and for the schools that have no money, things will be tighter,” Tabuns says. “They will have less access to computers, to textbooks,

what we see as integral or important parts of a good, solid education.” Fundraising inequities have been building for more than 20 years, says Kidder, of People for Education. “It’s really important to remember that kind of the fundamental premise of public education is to crassly provide a level playing field for kids or to overcome intergenerational cycles of poverty,” she says. “All children should have a fairly equitable chance for success and if you start to entrench fundraising as a core component of the funding for education, the danger is that you actually increase the inequity rather than narrow it.” To read the full text, visit www.yourottawaregion.com.

Skateboard park overall approved, despite service fees controversy Derek Dunn

“We shouldn’t penalize our residents because we don’t have a deal with McNab-Braeside,” said the recreation committee chair. “I don’t feel at this time we should be deferring it. It’s been deferred before.” Grinstead then changed her mind, saying the savings wouldn’t help keep parts of Nick Smith open. She said it is like giving kids their cake but not letting them eat it. Two young men with much experience around skateboard parks volunteered their time and expertise at the council meeting. They advised council go with a different company, Canada Ramp, in part because it has built many more skateboard parks than KSL. However, while the debate shifted from who should build it to whether it should be built at all one of the skateboarders, Kyle Dupuis, said

derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – Arnprior councillors have agreed to replace the skateboard park, but not before it was suggested recreation spending be put on hold due to the uncertain surrounding service agreements. Council agreed at its May 28 meeting to pay KSL Design to supply and install new equipment at the park, just outside the Nick Smith Centre, for about $45,000. Built in 2002, the current structure is made of wooden frames and wooden ramps. But with no place to store the pieces, winter took its toll. The frames were switched to metal. But among the 250 or more users, BMX biker numbers have risen. Following a lengthy discussion over the details, Mayor David Reid seemed to surprise many in the room when he said council should defer spending the money until after June 30, when the contentious service agreements issue is settled. “The parks and recreation budget is going to be impacted until that is done,” said Reid, who is in a public relations battle with McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell to secure a deal for recreation and library services. “Is this something we need to move forward with today? Maybe at the end of the day we can’t afford it. We might have trouble keeping the pool open.” Coun. Lynn Grinstead agreed with Reid, saying the $45,000 decision should be delayed. “It’s disappointing that we even have to consider these things,” Reid said. “We’d like to do what’s best for the youth of Arnprior and the area.”

if kids are forced out of hockey because a service deal isn’t reached, that would mean even more kids would want to use the park. He reminded council that a bylaw prevents skateboarding downtown, and that without the park there is almost nowhere else to go. Without minor hockey, figure skating, and many other services the two municipalities offer – kids would be bored. The vote to defer was defeated.

Kyle Dupuis, left, and David McGill have been around skateboard parks most of their lives. They shared their experience and advice with council, suggesting one company would do a better job at revamping the Nick Smith Centre’s skatepark. Council went with parks and recreation director Glenn Arthur’s choice instead. Veteran Coun. Mark Willmer said delaying the de-

cision would send the wrong message to residents.

FREE Drinking Water Lead Testing For Arnprior Residents

Regulations under the provincial Safe Drinking Water Act require the Town of Arnprior to conduct lead sampling of drinking water at a minimum of 40 residential and 4 non-residential locations connected to the Town of Arnprior’s drinking water distribution system. Sampling will commence June 15, 2012 and is scheduled to continue until October 15, 2012. If you suspect that you have lead piping or lead solder joints and/or wish to have your water tested for lead, please contact: Abby Barclay Environmental Eng. Tech. Town of Arnprior Phone: 613-623-4231 ext.222 E-mail: abarclay@arnprior.ca

Michael Trumble Waterworks Supervisor Town of Arnprior Phone: 613-623-4231 ext.246 E-mail: mtrumble@arnprior.ca

The sampling program will be ongoing, and sampling sites will be prioritized in accordance with the likelihood of lead services. There is no cost to the home or business owner for sampling and the results will be kept confidential. Residents that have already participated in previous sampling rounds can participate again! Please be advised that the Town of Arnprior does not send sales representatives door-to-door. Should someone approach you to conduct a free drinking water test, this could be a tactic to sell a water treatment system. While selling water treatment systems is not a crime, false identification/impersonation and improper testing of drinking water can be. For any further questions on this sampling program please contact Abby Barclay at the above number or e-mail address, or visit the Town of Arnprior website. Thank you for your consideration, The Corporation of the Town of Arnprior

Enjoy the moment I tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to put our problems and differences aside for a weekend and have some fun. The Arnprior 150 Committee and a multitude of supporters in town have spent a great deal of time and energy to organize two-plus days of special events designed to promote awareness of our storied past. Everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s welcome, especially Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good friends in neighbouring McNab-Braeside. If mayor David Reid and Mary Campbell can join together to have some fun on the same stage in a Prior Players production Saturday despite the stresses of the past few weeks, so can the general populace. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a trying year for

many in this area with businesses adversely affected by the economic slowdown and jobs not as plentiful as hoped. The efforts to attract new industry and residents to the area and to deal with the many infrastructure problems can be back on the front-burner next week. Arnprior council can decide at its next Monday meeting if the moves made by McNab-Braeside council Tuesday go far enough to be able to come to a service deal agreement, at least for the short term. But letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forget about it for this potentially glorious 150 anniversary weekend and have some good neighbour, old-fashioned community togetherness. Have a blast, everyone.

Food bank should respond better to its usersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; requests To the editor: In response to your story in the May 24 Chronicle Guide EMC entitled Strong Support for the Arnprior Food Bank. In my humble opinion, your story is sugarcoated to the max. I am a frequent user, having had tragedy in my life, a spiral effect that left me disadvantaged. For two years I needed help from the Arnprior Food Bank, noticed there was never cooking oil, or margarine, available. Then I was asked was there anything I would need, perhaps they could provide it. So I requested these items, either or, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter, as my father taught me beggars canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be choosers. They had none. I continued to make the request for two long years. Bread with no but-

ter. I know they have refrigeration. And they receive funding in the form of cash. So why are they not able to provide one of the most basic food staples? Now they claim there is a surplus. Perhaps, instead of buying in quantity the repeated $1.29 chicken hot dogs, they could balance the types of food items to meet even the minimal level of health as suggested by the Canadian Food Guide. The epidemic of obesity problems would and could be eliminated. Could it be that the only agenda these volunteers have is to pat themselves on the back and have no real concern for others, except that as long as they look good on the surface. This is the single apparent display they like to project about themselves. Karen Hebert Arnprior

Paradise lost on the trails of Arnprior To the editor: Did you know that the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;paradiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comes to us from an ancient Greek word meaning â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. And, if you think about it, there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much more pleasant than a leisurely stroll on a nice day through a park-like setting. The other day, Co-co, the other half of out dynamic (man-dog) duo and I set out early, hoping to experience a casual, care free stretchof-the-legs, walking along the tracks, or, at least where they used to be, in our neighborhood. The setting seemed idyllic. The closecropped grass sparkled with dew, the sun shone warm, the breeze was light. Perfect, right? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Paradiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;! And yet we had forgotten something important. Remember the advice young Bambi got from his mother on his first venture onto a grassy area unconcealed by the protective cover of the forest? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Remember, Bambi, there is danger on the meadow.â&#x20AC;? And there was. Co-co and I soon discovered that we were not the first to pass that way that morning; earlier twosomes had left ample proof of their presence. It seemed obvious that where as the half of the partnership had been doing its job, it was painfully evidence that the other half was not holding up their end of the business!

Double the cost to live at Grove Nursing Home? To the editor: For the last three years I have played ice hockey at the Nick Smith Centre, also ball hockey, public skate, swimming and hockey school. The facilities are already there. Why risk losing them. I would like to see big costs to the people who need retirement homes, so they know what it would feel like to have it forced on them like what is happening to us. Why doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surrounding areas target McNab-Braeside for extra fees

8 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, June 7, 2012

The place proved a ritual minefield for any unwary traveler and that what should have been a refreshing preface to whatever the day might bring quickly tiptoe-through-the-â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tulipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Wearying of this, we quit the field retreating to the relative safely of the sidewalk. Even here, however, a degree of vigilance proved necessary. Seriously, folks, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it high time for all pet owners to do the decent civilized thing and pick up after poochie? The alternative is unsightly, unsanitary and to use the current wishy-washy buzz word beloved by politicians everywhere, unacceptable! The remedy is simple, easy, quick, requires no particular skill set, nor highly technical equipment. If you have problems with it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure that any responsible pet owner would walk you through it. There now, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that easy? Yes, much better. Paradise restored. By the way, a thought came to me while working in my flower bed recently. Would your kitty, you know the one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not supposed to run at large, would he/she happen to have a little box? Ted Graham (and Co-co) Arnprior

Two councils should compromise on service deals To the editor: A copy of a letter to the McNab-Braeside and Arnprior councils. It is time to set aside the rhetorical speeches and writings and get an agreement completed for the provision of services for McNab-Braeside residents at the Nick Smith Centre and the library. We are very fortunate to live in a beautiful, prosperous part of the world. We have also long ago accepted the fact in this country that we all benefit by sharing in the costs of services. “If we all pay a little, we all gain a lot.” I believe that access to library and to the unique services at the Nick Smith Centre is important to all residents and particularly for young families. The major uses I witness at the library are by seniors and mothers with preschoolers and primary school children. Enrichment is important in the development of children and in the mental health of seniors. Two questions need to be answered. Can McNab-Braeside Council provide these ser-

vices at present? No. Does Arnprior need McNab-Braeside participation? Yes. Without McNab-Braeside participation, many programs would not be viable and revenues would be greatly reduced. Agreements are seldom reached between parties where one side gets everything it wants. It is the usual situation that each side gives up a position to reach agreement. To be successful , I believe each council has to give up at least one major position that has been taken. McNab-Braeside has to accept that user-pay simply doesn’t work in order for staff to do long-term planning and that most citizens of McNab benefit by having access to these facilities. Arnprior Council has to acknowledge that as owners of the facilities they control the costs and have to exercise the discipline required to keep costs within, at, or near the cost of inflation. Arnprior also needs to accept that they

‘$60 just to read a book in our town library’ To the editor: Your politics and arguments about money are soon going to make a huge effect on children of this area. We come from a small, united town, and I come from a family who will not be able to afford the increase of costs. These days kids play more and more video games, and watch more and more television. There have been studies regarding television and video game violence and their influence on young children. The results show an increase in teenaged violence. Also childhood obesity has become a real and scary issue. What are we promoting in taking the few opportunities for teamwork, responsibility, healthy exercise and optimism

away from our youth? If these things are taken away, you can expect to see increases in obesity, violence, drugs, alcohol, and rebellion in future teenagers. There is already too little to do in this town. This town has been my home. I have loved growing up here, but now I may have to pay $60 just to read a book in our town library, and may never again get to watch my brothers with pride as they play the game that they love. We are a community that is facing destruction if these feuds can’t be settled. We are a community. You may make any decisions you wish to, and you may argue until the end of time about money, but it is our community who will suffer the consequences. Mariah Fridgen, age 18, Braeside

have a much greater ability to pay more because of the very significant commercial/industrial assessment base. I have enclosed a suggested payment schedule, which I believe is affordable for McNab-Braeside and should be acceptable to Arnprior. For the years 2012 and 2013 McNab-Braeside would make increases of $25,000 for both library and the Nick Smith Centre. For the years 2014, 2015, and 2016 there would be three per cent increases to cover inflationary pressures on operating expenses. Suggested library payment schedule: 2012 - $60,276.55; 2013 - $85,276.55; 2014 - $87,833.85; 2015 - $90,469.89; 2016 -

$93,183.99. Suggested Nick Smith payment schedule: 2012 - $136,579.91; 2013 - $161,579.91; 2014 - $166,427.30; 2015 - $171,420.11; 2016 $176,562.71. Capital contributions should be made on the basis of the merits of the project and considered on a one-time basis only. A five-year agreement allows the managers of the two facilities to plan and operate good programs going forward. I wish both councils success in achieving a positive result and in your future endeavours. Neil Stewart Former McNab-Braeside Mayor

Request to M-B has to be reasonable To the editor: I have been reading newspaper articles and speaking with people regarding the controversy over the Library/Nick Smith Centre. I have already made my Library views known. It is a luxury and I feel the users should pay. The Nick Smith Centre is a whole different ballgame. I think recreational facilities are part and parcel of health and safety for our children and adults. Having said that, why are the members of M-B balking at paying for the use of this facility? Having spoken to many people about this, the one word that everyone includes when voicing their opinion is the word reasonable. Is the contribution that Arnprior is asking of M-B reasonable? Does anyone know the exact figures? What are we paying today and what are they asking for and is it reasonable? M-B is not huge and does not have a large tax base. That is a given. What I would be asking is how much is rea-

sonable. I don’t want to hear percentages, etc., I want to know exactly what is being asked for. Maybe M-B councillors are not being unreasonable, mean-spirited or just plain stingy. It might be the fact that they are handling our money and are being cautious spending it as they should be. Is it possible that Arnprior is not being reasonable in what they are asking for? David Reid’s comments about having to shut down a rink and fill in the pool is utterly ridiculous. If it is that bad, then maybe Arnprior should be handing it over to a private company to manage it. I would like to see an equitable arrangement agreed upon and quit wasting time. Maybe some of the people who want to continue using the facility without user fees should be sending letters to Arnprior council asking for a reasonable payment from M-B. Gail Anderson Braeside

OPINION

Your Community Newspaper

Don’t cancel town service deal To the editor: I would like to thank Peter Anas and Bill Griese for their letters outlining facts, figures and reasoning that would see McNab-Braeside continue paying for library and recreation services from Arnprior. At a time when experts outline the importance or literacy and the problem of child obesity, why would we cancel vital services that are needed to address these issues? How does Mayor Campbell think that McNabBraeside can replace even a fraction of the excellent services offered by Arnprior? We have not the facilities, staff or numbers to support programs. The main reason for Mayor Camp-

bell’s stand on the issue is the worry of raising our taxes. She is “sticking to her guns” at a meeting with the minor hockey parents while across the road at the Perneel building she has arranged for a presentation of a proposal that would see a $2.4-million renovation of this building to create new offices and meeting rooms. What effect would this have on our taxes? There are many questions to be answered. I urge taxpayers of McNabBraeside to get informed so that they may have the knowledge to make decisions on these issues. Take the time to let our mayor and council aware of how you feel. Sharol Havey Arnprior

Majority wants a deal ‘I would be sad and fat if I couldn’t play hockey” To the editor: I am a fixed income retiree who supports the majority of my community wanting a deal with Arnprior for the Rec. Centre and Library. As Mayor Campbell has said many times in her interviews, the majority of people do want this deal, but she is just ignoring them and coming up with unreasonable alternatives. Most residents of the 7,371 people of McNabBraeside live near Arnprior, not Renfrew, so that is where the services are needed. A covered rink is not the answer and unless M-B gets a huge windfall of money, they will never be able to offer the services that Arnprior has. I feel for the parents and children of M-B and hope more of them will stand up and fight for their rights. Lorraine DeJoode RR3, Arnprior

To the editor: Re: McNab-Braeside-Arnprior Dispute As a 10-year-old, I don’t understand all of the problems, but I can tell you about how it will impact my life. My goal is to make the Packers. It is all I think about when I play house league. I am a good player but I need another year to improve. My parents tell me that might not happen because of the cost. All my friends play hockey, and each year I make new friends. I also play ball hockey, and attend hockey school.

I use the pool and the library. I can’t even use the library with my class without paying extra. That’s not fair at all. I would probably sit on the couch eating potato chips or playing video games to fill in the time. Hockey brings our family together, grandparents included. I would be sad and fat if I couldn’t play. My brother also plays and is writing a letter too. I look forward to the ’tween dances and I hope all this doesn’t disappear for me and my friends. Zach Fridgen, Grade 4 Braeside

INVISIBLE

Winter in Canada means hockey To the editor: (A copy of a letter sent to McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell and council.) I know what you think, but can you hear my side? I am only 10 years old and I want hockey to stay the same because it is stupendous. I know that it will double the cost for us to play hockey, but it is a great sport and one of Canada’s sports. There is no other sport that I like in the winter; there is no other sport like hockey in the winter. Cohen Dunn Arnprior

ENTERTAINMENT

Your Community Newspaper

Mayors to help Prior Players bring area history to life EMC events - Arnprior’s 150th birthday celebrations this weekend have an added attraction, a play depicting the history of the area. The Prior Players are performing the play twice this Saturday, June 9, written by local resident Charlotte Leitch. Performances are free and will be held at the Christian Education Centre at 2 and 4 p.m. Leitch has been a member of the Prior Players for more than five years. She has produced, worked behind the scenes and played the part of Gwendolyn Pigeon in ‘The Odd Couple’.

When the Town contacted Prior Players to see if they would be interested in doing something for the 150th celebrations, Leitch came up with an idea for a play and put pen to paper. The curtain opens to the modern day office of Mayor David Reid. As Reid prepares for the weekend celebrations, he is visited by some unexpected characters. Arnprior’s history comes alive when past meets present. Leitch did a significant amount of research to guide her in writing this script. She admits that some parts are

added as fillers, but all in all the play is true to the history of Arnprior. Many local families are acknowledged in the play. While historic, it is comical as well and will provide good entertainment for the anniversary weekend. Leitch was delighted when both Mayor Reid and McNabBraeside Mayor Mary Campbell agreed to each play themselves in the play. The play lasts about 40 minutes. For more information, call Prior Players at 613-623-5585 or e-mail priorplayers@gmail. com.

In the scene during Monday’s rehearsal, from left, are Ben Hrkach (Motel), Donna Balkan (Yente), Jamie Bentz (Tzeitel), James Hrkach (Tevye) and Kirsten Carroll Somoza (Golde). The boisterous musical, with its energetic dance scenes, opens a three-day run tonight (Thursday). There are also performances Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Arnprior District High School, although the Saturday performance is already sold out.

County to bring highway death toll to province Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – Renfrew County councillors can’t seem to find a way to secure more provincial dollars for upgrading Highway 17. In the past they’ve tried the financial approach, telling Queen’s Park and the federal government that it would be money well spent. But with limited success. The latest approach, tested during the May 30 council meeting by Petawawa Coun. Treena Lemay, goes in another direction. Lemay’s presentation to council included the photos and stories of those who died in highway crashes over the last couple of years. • Lucienne ‘Lucy’ Web, Jan. 25, 2011; • Pat Harvey, a week later in Deep River; • Bryan Casey, near Arnprior, worked at AECL; • Damon Souliere, 18, was texting on May 28, 2011 when he was killed in an accident; • Karlington Booth rear-ended a tractor trailer, again near Arnprior; • 16-year-old Timothy Archambeault, on June 15, 2011, four other Pembroke friends were injured; • A week later it was Michael Clouthier, 27; • Bob Berger on June 30, in Cobden; • Yvon Briere, a soldier who survived numerous conflicts, on Aug. 4; • No deaths, but a serious three-

vehicle crash occurred near Renfrew on Aug. 23 involving a house trailer; • Jason Rickard of North Bay, 20, after hitting an 18-wheeler; • Lynsey Cote and Mitch Albert, best friends, on Sept. 24; • Alan Smith and friend Marinea Smith, 79 and 74 respectively, on Jan. 31, 2012; • Greydon Woollerton on April 23; • Lloyd Ferguson of Kingston, May 22, followed by a three-vehicle collision three hours later; “In 2011, Renfrew County was the deadliest in the province,” Lemay said afterward, to an emotionfilled room. “These fatalities didn’t need to happen.” She passed around statistics to back up the individual deaths: between 2007 and 2011, Renfrew County had 29 fatalities; the Upper Ottawa Valley had 29; by contrast Ottawa had 23; Russell had 14. Ottawa, with hundreds of thousands of vehicles on the Queensway in 2011, had five fatalities; Renfrew had 17. Other statistics backed up the notion that Highway 17 needs work. While admitting that “roads don’t kill people, people kill people,” Lemay said that nonetheless the province should bring back rest stops, improve snow removal, and identify black spot areas. She twice added that the presentation was prompted by a story in the Renfrew Mercury by Steve Newman. It detailed concern about the number

Karlinton Boothe is among those who have died over the last two years in Highway 17 accidents. His photo and details of the crash appeared on a large screen during an emotional presentation to Renfrew county council May 29. The presentation mentioned all those who died. of fatalities on the highway and included an interview with Renfrew OPP Staff-Sgt. Colin Slight. Few in the room seemed confident the province would twin the highway to the west end of the county any time soon. The government will continue with an incremental approach, as dollars become available, it was agreed. Lemay and Petawawa’s police services board asked council to secure a meeting with Transportation Minister Bob Chiarelli to discuss ways to reduce “the incomparable number of deaths on the provincial highways passing through Renfrew County.”

It was announced Tuesday that a county delegation will meet with Chiarelli in Toronto June 27. McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell took issue with Lemay describing some of the accidents occurring “near Arnprior,” when it would be more accurate to say they occurred in McNab-Braeside. She argued that using the township’s name would have more affect in Queen’s Park than using Arnprior. Campbell also talked about the need for a stop light at the Highway 17-Calabogie Road intersection. Lemay said she used Google and newspaper reports to pull the presen-

tation together, and that she didn’t mean to exclude McNab-Braeside. “I know where it is,” she said. Many crashes seem to take place when drivers are forced to slow down after the two lanes end, leading to frustration. The financial argument failed, it was learned, because provincial politicians often tie roadwork with economic development. Apparently they believe economic development is needed more in other regions. Some councillors suggested the federal government be approached, since the military base and AECL have strong federal connections. They said the federal government is interested, but the province must be on board first. “There is no reason people in Renfrew County have to die because the roads are not good,” said Lemay, who mused aloud about working with the minister of revenue to figure out how much money is spent on OPP and other public resources after an accident. She implied more money could be saved preventing accidents than reacting to them. It was mentioned that with the CPRail rail line gone, roads are the only means of transporting goods on the ground through Renfrew County to Manitoba. Warden Bob Sweet said the county has had some success in winning dollars for the highway, but that a new approach is needed. He approved of Lemay’s presentation.

THE LAST SPIKE On May 29, Arnprior Coun. Dan Lynch was coming home from Senior Golf at Madawaska and couldn’t cross the railway due to railway cars blocking the cross streets to William. He had to go to Poole Street to come back to Division and then William, where he observed that the rail line was being removed. “I asked the foreman if I could have the last spike from the Town of Arnprior side. He complied and Skippy was there to take a photo,” said Lynch. The transaction was witnessed by resident Gerald Lentz. The spike, said Lynch, will become part of the Arnprior and District Museum artifacts.

Arnprior volunteer firefighters held a car wash at the Arnprior fire station on Saturday June 2 with all proceeds to support Tim Hortons Camp Day. Although an overcast day, the firefighters endured with scrub brushes and hoses in hand. When things wrapped up by noon hour, $555.10 was raised for Camp Day. Anyone who attended the car wash also had opportunity to contribute towards 50/50 tickets. The winner of the draw was Betty Robertson. When contacted, Robertson graciously donated her winnings back to the charity, saying, ‘it’s for the kids’. “Thanks to those who drove in to support the car wash and also those who tossed spare change into the fire boots at the Tim Hortons drive-thru,” noted fire captain Rick Desarmia of the Arnprior Fire Department, who was co-ordinator of the event. Tim Hortons held its camp day fundraiser Wednesday.

Driver charged after car slams into power pole EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A driver was charged with drunk driving following an accident in downtown Arnprior on the weekend. A 25-year-old woman is suspected of losing control of her Chrysler Intrepid northbound on John Street. The car clipped the town museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cannon, breaking some wood off, then

struck a hydro pole before rolling onto its side. The pole keeled over, blocking the road. OPP officers were in the midst of responding to an â&#x20AC;&#x153;unwanted person at a residenceâ&#x20AC;? and observed the incident. They attempted to stop the vehicle before it struck the pole.

The driver was taken to Arnprior District Memorial Hospital, treated for minor injuries and released.

The woman was released from police custody on a Promise to Appear in Ontario Provincial court on July 11.

OPP have laid charges after a vehicle clipped the historic cannon at the Arnprior and District Museum early Sunday morning. The car then nailed a hydro pole, disrupting traffic toward the hospital for a period of time and knocking out phone and Internet service in the area. A 25-year-old woman faces charges for impaired driving. Left, debris from the car lies besides the cannon. The location of the cannon was debated last year, but the museum decided to leave it on the John Street side of the building.

Reid Brothers: Caring Commitment to Community

While they may have changed street addresses over the years as their customer base and need for space grew, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been just a phone call away when a group such as the Partners in Caring Foundation, or the Arnprior Minor Hockey Association, or the local Lions or Rotarians needed a hand. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it comes as no surprise that Trevor believes Reid Brothers Motors should do something really special for Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th birthday celebrations. So on Saturday June 9th, he and his staff are putting out the welcome mat to all area residents and families. From 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at their 149 Madawaska Blvd location,

Reid Brothers Motors will have inflatable rides for the kids, and from noon to 1:00 pm a charity BBQ will be serving mouth-watering treats, and from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm, the ever-popular Rayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reptiles Travelling Show will pay a visit to enthrall young and old alike. And all of this is absolutely free! Trevor will, (for those who are so inclined), have the donation bucket out on behalf of the Arnprior Hospital Partners in Caring Foundation for their fundraising drive to help purchase a digital mammography unit. A great time is planned for all and a great cause will benefit. And it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there. For the entire month of June, Trevor has something very special planned for his customers to help continue the celebration of Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sesquicentennial. As the Arnprior Rotary Club has revised and revitalized their popular Arnprior-opoly board game as a club fundraiser, Trevor has secured a suitable supply of these great family games and will be giving away one to each new and pre-owned vehicle customer in June. To continue a 17 year tradition, Reid Brothers Motors will be fundraising again this December for the Arnprior and District Food Bank. This campaign sees customers (or members of the Reid Brothers

extended family as Trevor likes to call them) drop by and make a donation and then Reid Brothers matches those funds up to $2,500. Over the last 17 years they have raised over $120,000 for this community cause! Reid Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; actions like this and like hundreds of other examples over the years really do drive home the reasons for Arnprior drivers to shop locally. Community-minded retailers like the Reids are the next-door neighbours who help to put uniforms on local youth sports teams, who sit and participate on chamber of commerce and business association boards, who work with local charitable committees and who employ local residents. They contribute to local hospital funding drives and always find room for another display or poster in their window to help promote a special community event. When it comes to buying an auto, dealing with a local institution like Reid Brothers Motors means driving satisfied. Trevor and his customerminded team know that every client is more than just a number, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re neighbours and family and friends. Call them at 613-623-3137 to find why theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been around for almost 60 years.

Very few businesses today can look back on a successful history that spans six decades. Fewer still of those have thrived in the sometimes turbulent automotive retail industry. And only a select handful has worked hand-in-hand with their communities to support worthwhile causes and charitable organizations throughout the years. Trevor Reid, dealer and general manager of Reid Brothers Motor Sales Ltd in Arnprior is proud that his General Motors store wears that particular badge of honour. In fact their company motto says it all: serving and supporting our community since 1954.

able people in the community. We very much understand this to be in keeping with our call as a people of faith.” One of the biggest differences between Winnipeg’s dioceses, where there were 39 various churches and Renfrew, where there is one United Church in the town, is that the more urban setting provided more options for parishioners with churches specializing in various beliefs. Wardell says he is proud of the congregation and church community for the way they work together and respect each other’s beliefs, even if they don’t always agree. The church has established a committee that examines issues, including gender identity and sexual orientation and how to foster more acceptance. Promoting diversity and acceptance will continue to be a focus in the future, says Wardell. The Festival kicks off Friday, July 6, with Dragon’s Breath, a theatrical performance at 7 p.m. at Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church and the festival is Saturday, July 7, 9 a.m.- 4 p.m., at Renfrew’s Low Square. Dragon’s Breath closes the event with another showing 4-6 p.m. Dragon’s Breath premieres June 30 at 7 p.m. in Almonte at the Old Town Hall Auditorium.

“The United Church, within the spectrum of Christian denominations, we are certainly known for more liberal leanings,” says Rev. Russell Wardell of Trinity St. Andrew’s United Church in Renfrew. Wardell and wife Rev. Susan Tough, with whom he leads the congregation, came to Renfrew from a church in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Wardell became a minister 25 years ago, kind of a rare occurrence, he says. It seems to often be that a calling to the ministry is a second career, he says. The United Church is indeed one of the first to have started talking about and to embrace diversity. “We were one of the first denominations to ordain women and we entered into the conversation of sexuality in the 1970s,” says Wardell. “In 1988, we decided being gay or lesbian was not a barrier to ordination,” he said. The United Church of Canada was active in the campaign that led to legal recognition of same-sex marriages in our country and now allows individual congregations to decide whether or not to perform these marriages. The United Church is providing the venue for Dragon’s Breath, the dramatic performance that will open and close the July 6-7 Diversity Festival. “We are very much in support of the principles of the diversity festival in that all people in the community should feel not only a sense of belonging but a sense of pride for what they contribute to their community,” says Wardell. “We find it to be in keeping with Jesus’ commitment to reaching out to the most vulner-

NATURE

Your Community Newspaper

EMC lifestyle – Nature is full of remarkable phenomena. The annual migration of tiny warblers from the Ottawa Valley to Central America and back is one. The ability of a male Cecropia moth to find a mate by following her chemical trail in the night air over several kilometres using only his antennae is another. The sudden appearance of millions of dragonflies is another. Some people seem to enjoy thinking up silly reasons for the occurrence of this latter phenomenon. Currently, armies of dragonflies can be seen flitting over lakes, rivers, and ponds, and arising from quiet secondary roads. It has been rumoured that their sudden appearance is due to efforts by our friendly Natural Resources to control Mosquitoes and Black Fly populations. Although the appearance of dragonflies does follow the emergence of biting insects, our government has absolutely nothing to do with their arrival. Dragonflies and their

Braeside bear treed

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way smaller relatives, damselflies, spend most of their lives in the water as nymphs. After a year, most leave the water and climb ashore. Some sit atop rocks while others crawl up vegetation. After a nymph acquires a secure grip, its back begins to swell. Finally this splits, and the back of the newly formed dragonfly pushes through. Once the back is free, the head soon follows. Eventually the abdomen pulls out of the nymphal prison and the birth of the adult dragonfly is complete.

The dragonfly sits quietly as liquid is pumped into the veins of its new, soft wings, causing them to unfold and flatten. Eventually the wings harden enough to allow the insect to flutter to a safer perch where the hardening process continues for several more hours. The near simultaneous transformation of so many nymphs into adult dragonflies is not by chance. This remarkable event is triggered largely by water temperature. DRAGONFLIES

When a certain temperature threshold is reached, legions of nymphs are motivated to abandon the water and undergo their transformation. That is why one day there are no dragonflies and the next there are thousands. Because different species of dragonflies inhabit different types of aquatic habitats and have different development times, the species composition changes as summer progresses. For those interested, the best book for iden-

EMC news – Bear sightings in the Braeside area and near Carleton Place have prompted authorities to re-issue an appeal for residents to take steps not to attract the animals. A report Tuesday from the Old Orchard Estates near Braeside had a six-pound dog named Belle chasing a small black bear up a tree in resident’s

tifying local species is The Dragonflies and Damselflies of Algonquin Park. A new rumour is that Natural Resources is releasing rattlesnakes in Renfrew County to eat the eggs of Wild Turkeys. Well, neither do rattlesnakes eat eggs nor are they being released in the county or anywhere for that matter. People are mistaking Milk Snakes, harmless brownand-cream patterned snakes that vibrate their tails when alarmed, for rattlesnakes. Incidentally, Natural Resources has never released Cougars or Fishers in our area. Once again fertile minds have been at work. Perhaps there will be fewer myths in the future because the government agency so popular with myth creators continues to undergo severe budget cutbacks. After all, it takes unimaginable resources to rear billions of dragonfly nymphs and then airlift them as adult dragonflies to local waterways!

Arnprior fire chief John Okum and Arnprior and District Museum volunteers Brian Labrie and Fred Dellamico discuss how to remove the 1928 fire truck from the museum. The truck was taken out Wednesday, after some modifications to the door, so it can be put on display at the fire department’s 150th anniversary open house Saturday.

some dry rot, so needs some work, she noted. That work couldn’t be done in the museum. She said that once it is done, it will again become roadworthy and will be available for parades and displays. The museum will gain new exhibit space and be able to use the door nearest to where the truck was situated for improved accessibility as mandated by the province, she said. 150 WEEKEND EXHIBITS

The museum has acquired the first maps of both Arnprior and ‘McNabb’ to put on display. “It’s very exciting ... to have them available for this weekend,” Carlile said. The museum has also set up displays of the contents of the Arnprior 125th anniversary time capsule. Particularly interesting are predictions made 25 years ago for 2012. There are various items, such as those that show what house and car prices were back then. “It establishes where things were 25 years ago,” Carlile said.

Supporters help save Arnprior’s curling club EMC sports - The Arnprior Curling Club hosted a volunteer appreciation event on Saturday, June 2 to thank its directors, members current and past, and community supporters who have worked hard over the past few years to ensure the continued history of curling in Arnprior. The event was also a celebration of the finalization of the purchase of the curling club building and two acres from the Arnprior Agricultural Society. It was timely, coming a week before Arnprior holds its 150th birthday festivities. Curling was first played outdoors in Arnprior almost 150 years ago, in 1865, on the Madawaska River and later on the Ottawa River. The Arnprior Curling Club has been a recreational institution in Arnprior for 144 years. The first curling club was built on Victoria Street in 1868. In 1876 a new club was built on Harriet Street and in 1899 a new club was erected on Elgin Street and was operational there until the current building was opened on Feb. 14, 1970. In 2008 the Arnprior Agricultural Society deemed the land that the curling club was built on to be surplus to their needs and offered it up for sale. The two parties came to a sales agreement with a closing date of June 1. In preparation for the purchase, the Curling Club started a Club Acquisition Fund and began an aggressive fundraising campaign with a goal of raising $100,000 for a down payment on a mortgage. Over $90,000 has been raised after legal and land transfer fees were paid. About half of the monies came from private donations from current and past members with the remainder coming from special fundraising events. While successful in purchasing the land and preserving the Curling Club, the road ahead will not be easy, say club officials. The separation from the Agricultural Society means the Curling Club is subject to paying taxes from

About 85 people gathered at the Arnprior Curling Club Saturday to celebrate the finalization of the buying of the building from the Arnprior Agricultural Society and thank the members, volunteers and supporters who made it possible. Admiring a ‘We did it’ cake made by Val Stott, from left, are club officials Russell Oatman, Sandra Tait, John Wahay and Alan Sentence. Photo by John Carter which they were exempt when leasing with the Agricultural Society. The taxes have not been determined as yet, but the expected tax levy will be somewhere in the range of $12,000 to $14,000 per year,

an onerous amount for a small membership to raise in addition to paying a mortgage and operating a large facility. Curling is a valuable resource for the community as attested by many new members who

tell the club’s executive that having sports facilities such as a curling rink attracted them to the community. Tournaments and bonspiels held at the club provide a direct benefit to local businesses when participants shop, eat or sleep in the community. Providing a winter sporting opportunity for youth who cannot afford expensive sports is another value to the community. Currently the club offers a very good youth program with 46 youngsters participating this past year. Curling is also attracting more seniors now curling sticks and protective headgear are available, which lessen the danger of falling. The Arnprior Curling Club is also a popular community venue for hall rentals for weddings, stag and does, and birthday, anniversary and holiday parties, “so please consider supporting us by renting our facilities.” The club also offer many opportunities for on-ice advertising to promote businesses to members, guests and renters. In addition to thanking the members for their many volunteer hours and those who have made financial donations, the Curling Club thanks the many local businesses who have helped in the fundraising efforts by providing products, services and gift certificates for fundraising events. A special thank you to John Milliken who provided snow plowing free of charge this past winter; to community home owners Randy and Lenna Whyte, Mel and Marion Bretzlaff and Mavis and Glen Lesway who graciously offered their homes for the very successful Christmas Home Tour; and to Tim Hortons who annually support the Youth Program. Anyone wishing to help the Curling Club as it continues its fundraising efforts can call acquisition chair John Wahay at 613-622-0018 or club president Sandra Tait at 613-622-0267. “Together we can preserve this wonderful curling and social venue for the Town of Arnprior.”

Pineridge Children’s Centre marked the 13th year of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario walkathon when kids, staffers and parents took to the streets May 22. The walkathon has raised well over $10,000 for the hospital, says owner Barry Blier, who added that a number of Pineridge kids have been patients and received excellent care at CHEO.

CHEO telethon airs this weekend EMC lifestyle – The 29th annual CHEO Telethon on CTV will air this weekend, from 7 p.m. Saturday, June 9 to 7 p.m. Sunday, June 10. It’s a 24-hour celebration of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario with stories and interviews with doctors, nurses, staff and most importantly the children and youth who rely on CHEO. Arnprior Co-operators staff will again be manning phones to take local pledge calls during the telethon. The Co-operators office is also selling CHEO bears, t-shirts, sweat shirts, caps and even used books to raise money for CHEO. CHEO looks after health care needs for children throughout the region, including many

from the Arnprior area. The CHEO Foundation raises funds to help support the work at CHEO. Donations help the hospital provide a wide variety of pediatric programs, research, state-of the art equipment, medical and nursing education, and assistance for families in crisis. SPECIAL EVENTS

Each year, the Foundation holds the CTV Telethon for CHEO, which is part of the NorthAmerica wide Children’s Miracle Network. All funds raised locally benefit CHEO. Many organizations plan special events to raise funds for CHEO. There is a Rock for CHEO each year in the fall and the Pineridge Children’s Centre holds an annual walk to support the hospital. People can call during the telethon or visit the CHEO Foundation to make a donation online or to find out how to make a financial donation.

One year ago God called you home, He took you from our side, But your memories will be with us forever in our hearts as days go by. Life is but a stopping place, A pause in whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to be, A resting place along the road, To sweet eternity.

We little knew that morning, God was going to call your name, In live we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. Always loved, never forgotten, Carol, Jane, Brenda, Barry and Families

Our family circle has been broke, A link gone from our chain, But though weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re parted for a while, We know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll meet again. Some day we hope to meet you, Some day, we know not when, We shall meet in a better land, And never part again. We shall meet with many a loved one, That was torn from our embrace, We shall listen to their voices, And behold them face to face. Sunshine passes, shadows fall, Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remembrance outlasts all. The Martin & Cathcart Families COLLINS, MARY, JUNE 13, 2005

MARGRET,

Those whom we love go out of sight, But never out of mind; They are cherished in the hearts, Of those they left behind. Loving and kind in all her ways, Upright and just in all her days, Sincere and true in heart and mind, Beautiful memories she left behind. A constant wish that she was here; Others were taken, yes I know: But she was mine and I loved her so. Love husband Eddie

We think of you Heather, every day, Your smiles and chatter, the words you did say. The walks and the catch-ups, the time that we shared, Busy lives close together, showed just how much we cared. If only we could turn back time, To when our lives were sailing along just fine. Our sisterly chats, our planned places to go, The bike rides, trips, shops and the beach, Where did the sands of time go. We miss you so much Heather, more than words can every say, Our precious memories of you are with us every day. See you soon. Diane, Katie, Kathy & Bill

YANTHA, ANNIE, June 8, 1923 to March 17, 2011. The depths of sorrow we cannot tell, Of the loss of one we loved so well. And while she sleeps a peaceful sleep, Her memory we shall always keep. God knew that she was suffering, That the hills were hard to climb, So he closed her weary eyelids, And whispered â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peace be thine.â&#x20AC;? Away in the beautiful hills of God, By the valley of rest so fair, Some day, we know not when, We will meet our loved one there. Love From All Your Family

MCLAUGHLIN, MEL In loving memory of a dear brother, father and son who passed away on June 10, 1992. Broken is the family circle, Our dear one has passed away, Passed from the earth and earthly darkness, Into bright and perfect day, But we all must cease to languish, Over the grave of him we love, Strive to be prepared to meet him, In the better world above.

Sadly missed by your family and good friend Diane. STEVENS, Leonard, In memory of Leonard Stevens who died June 2, 2002. Life is but a stopping place, A pause in whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to be, A resting place along the road, To sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way, We all were meant to learn some things, But never meant to stay. Our destination is a place, Far greater than we know, For some the journeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quicker, For some the journeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slow. And when the journey finally ends, Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll claim a great reward, And find an everlasting peace, Together with the Lord. Love forever, From Jeannie, Ron, Peter and their families FRASER, Effie, In memory of a wonderful mother. Sweet memories will linger forever, Time cannot change them, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true. Years that may come cannot sever, My loving remembrance of you. From Wayne and Gail

Champlain’s stop along the Ottawa River to be celebrated EMC events – Next year during early June, it will be 400 years since Samuel de Champlain landed on Morris Island and other spots along the Ottawa River. And communities along the way are planning a series of celebrations. West Carleton folk historian Terry Currie said Champlain stopped at Morris Island on June 4,

1613, while en route to Pembroke. The Fitzroy Township Historical Society intends to do a reenactment and host a number of other events – many designed to teach kids about Canadian and Ottawa history. Currie invites those interested in participating or sharing ideas to call him at 613-839-3439.

Galetta Bowls Club spruced things up in preparation of an number of events at the club recently including an open house and Senior Games competition. Club members cleaned out the overgrown garden area under the direction of club member and great gardener, Jennifer Bennett. The work crew poses in front of the green under the sign naming the green: ‘Donald MacHardy Green’. Twenty years ago MacHardy had a vision to build a bowls green in Galetta and made his dream come true. His wife, Helen MacHardy, was honored with a life-time membership in Galetta Bowls Club last fall.

Car parts stolen from work site EMC news – Sometime between May 24-29, four wheels and four tires were stolen from a construction site on Division Street in McNabBraeside, Renfrew OPP report. There are no suspects at this time and OPP Constable Calvin Bergins is investigating. It was one of 204 calls for service received by the Renfrew OPP last week. DRINKING DRIVER

On June 3 at about 12:25 a.m., OPP Const. Barry Richardson stopped to investigate a vehicle running on the side of Centennial Lake Road, southwest of Calabogie. with three oc-

cupants inside. The investigation revealed the male driver had been drinking and there was a loaded long gun in the car. The driver failed a roadside alcohol screening test and was taken to the detachment for further tests. An 18-year-old teenager from McNab-Braeside Township was charged with consuming alcohol under 19 years, unlawfully having a loaded firearm in a vehicle, unlawfully hunting at night, and being a young driver with a blood alcohol content above zero. His drivers licence was suspended for 7 days. A 17-year-old from Horton Township was given a ticket for being under 19 years in possession of alcohol.

So I was giving some thought to curiosity. I consider myself to be a very curious person and find I am drawn to others who possess this trait. Wanting to know about new things is the driving force behind many magnificent inventions. A friend of mine, who by the way is a very eligible senior citizen, has started to date. When I asked her if she revealed her whole life story to her new suitor, she replied…”No…I want to be mysterious…I want him to be curious about me!” Curiosity keeps your mind active. The exercise of asking questions and searching for answers is an excellent mental activity. When you are curious about something, your mind looks for new ideas related to the object of your curiosity. If you are not curious, the ideas may be right in front of you and yet you miss them because your mind is not prepared to recognize them. Curiosity opens to new possibilities. I can remember being very interested in Thailand. Up to that point I had only ever gone on beach vacations down south. It never occurred to me that there was a much larger and interesting world to see. I attended a talk about this little country in Asia and before I knew it, I found myself in Patpong, one of the world’s most famous red light

districts in Bangkok! Being open and curious about other parts of the world has opened me to many exciting adventures which are often hidden beneath the surface of normal everyday life. Being curious is never boring. There is always some new activity or idea to explore. Have you found that it is the curious people that have loads of adventure in their life? When I asked some of the residents at Island View what their thoughts on curiosity were, Denise shared with me that curiosity should be learning everything about your own interests first and have respect for other people’s privacy and self esteem before you are curious about them. Midge stated that she is not as curious as she would like to be and confessed she would probably learn more if she was more curious about life. Wellwood thought that not knowing is NOT a disgrace and not knowing where to find answers is a pity, but to not know and not WANT to find the answers is a pure tragedy indeed. Others equated an avid curiosity about others shows them you care yet some thought there was a fine line between being curious and being nosey.

How do we foster a curious mind? It is important to be open to learn new things, unlearn old patterns that no longer serve you and relearn new ways of being and thinking about the world around you. Be open to changing your mind to old ideas. Don’t take things at face value. Try and dig deeper below to another level. A friend once shared with me that all behavior makes sense when you understand where they are coming from. Ask questions. What, why, when, who, where, how are a curious minds most favorite questions. Above all, look at learning as fun. If we can look at life as being one long adventure with ups as well as downs we will most certainly want to be curious about what makes us tick as well as the world around us.

Familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first car was a diamond in the rough EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mother often wondered if we got a bargain when Father traded many loads of gravel for the old Model T, our ďŹ rst car. The deal was made with a neighbour who needed gravel for a washed-culvert: we had the gravel pit, and he had the car. Not a penny changed hands. Just a hand-shake in the back yard on a Spring day in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;30s, the way most deals were done back then. We children were thrilled beyond belief! Imagine. A car. Our ďŹ rst. It certainly wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much to look at. In an attempt to ďŹ x up a battered front fender, the ďŹ rst owner had painted it green. Of course, the rest of the car was black. Mother thought the paint was from left-overs from painting a pump or old lawn furniture, which seemed to be the colour everyone used back then. Father said the odd fender gave the car a nice touch. When we got the car, one back door was missing. The farmer said it was somewhere in a ditch along the Northcote road, and he was pretty sure we could ďŹ nd it on one of our trips into Renfrew. He said it ďŹ&#x201A;ew off one day when he hit a rut. Sure enough, Earl spotted it hidden in the long grass just after Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm about two miles up the road. Father tied it on with binder twine, which meant,

of course, it could never be opened. It stayed forever tied to the frame of the old Model T. The brothers just climbed in over the top of it, and got out the same way. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a big car, and it was a never-ending challenge for us ďŹ ve kids and Mother and Father to all get in. It meant that someone had to sit in the front seat between Mother and Father, and the rest of us had to pile into the back, with one of us crouched down on the ďŹ&#x201A;oor. You would think none of us wanted this ďŹ&#x201A;oor spot, but to me it was the best place in the entire Model T. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because there was a hole in the ďŹ&#x201A;oor as big as a saucer, and you could sit there and watch the road go by. In fact, we often fought over the spot. So Mother, in her usual organized manner, drew up a chart, and whose turn it was depended entirely on Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list. Apart from making it easier to get into the car, the running board served the purpose of carrying an overload. It seemed to me we never went anyplace without boxes, chickens in crates, and an extra gas tank tied to the running board. Although the old Model T was supposed to make our lives easier on the farm, it had several drawbacks, which became the bane of Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

existence. Getting it started was one of them. It had to be cranked. The crank was kept under the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat ... well, it was supposed to be there, but one time we neglected to take it out of the spot where it was used to start the car, and we lost it on the Northcote Side Road, just like the missing door. It too was discovered on the way home from wherever we were going that day. I lived in constant dread that one day Father was going to lose an arm cranking the car. More often than not, the car balked when he was cranking it, and his arm would ďŹ&#x201A;y towards the sky with such a force that it is a wonder it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wrenched from its

socket. Of course, Father would let out a spew of words in German, which thankfully no one could understand, but from the look on his face, I knew he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reciting a verse from the bible! Someone had to sit behind the steering wheel while this was going on, to work the gas lever, or the choke, whichever Father ordered from the front the car. And once the motor caught, that person, usually my brother Everett, would ďŹ&#x201A;y out of the car, crawl over the tied-on door, and be ready to take off with the rest of us. Flat tires were expected every time we left the lane and hit the Northcote Side Road.

It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual to have three or four during the 12-and-ahalf-mile trip into Renfrew. Father always carried a little kit with him, and was always able to ďŹ x the tire in jig time, and have us back on the road before you could blink an eye. One time, which I remember with great clarity, we actually lost an entire wheel. The car came to an abrupt halt as the shaft holding the wheel dug into the dirt road. The three brothers exited the car the same way they got in, over the door, rather than through it, and hoisted the car, with Mother, Audrey and I still in it. Father slammed the wheel back on, screwed the bolts tight, and we were again on our way. Driving the Model T at night was a challenge. The two headlights were useless. All they really did was alert other drivers that we were on the road. So Father rigged up a lantern, which could be anchored to the radiator at

the front of the car, a great improvement over the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lights. Long trips at night were out of the question. The Model T was certainly a step up from the horse and buggy. Mother doubted it got us into Renfrew any faster, though. With the expected ďŹ&#x201A;at tires, and various other problems, we always seemed to encounter with the car, even going ďŹ&#x201A;at out, Emerson ďŹ gured we were only going about 25 miles an hour. But to us ďŹ ve kids, the car was like a status symbol. Other neighbours had newer cars, but our ďŹ rst car, to us, meant that we had moved out of the horse-and-buggy age, and into a modern world. Even though Mother often questioned if we got a bargain by trading many loads of gravel for the car, there was no doubt in the minds of ďŹ ve youngsters out in Renfrew county, that we got the best of the deal. And through the simple shake of a hand!

Crab cakes can serve as appetizer or main course

Sponsored by

ST. FRANCIS XAVIER PARISH

PAT TREW

2/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. of finely crushed cracker crumbs such as Club or Toppable crackers 1 1/2 tbsp. olive or vegetable oil for cooking the crab cakes In a non-stick medium frying pan, heat the first amount of oil. In this, cook the celery and onion just until the onion is transparent. Remove the pan from the heat, but don’t wash it. You’ll use it again to cook the crab cakes. In a medium bowl, combine the cooked celery and onion with the mayonnaise, seasonings and crab. Stir in 1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. of the cracker crumbs. Mix just enough to combine the ingredients. The crab mixture is moist and messy, so wear latex gloves for the next step. Spread the remaining 1/3 cup of cracker crumbs on a large plate. Using a 1/4 or 1/3 cup mea-

sure, scoop out enough mixture for each crab cake. Shape the crab mixture into 10 small cakes for appetizers, or into 6 cakes 2- 3” round for a main course. The crab cakes should be just under 1” thick. Cover both sides of the crab cakes with the crumbs, and set them aside. In the same frying pan that you used for the celery and onion, heat the 1 1/2 tbsp. oil over medium-low heat. Use a spatula to transfer the crab cakes to the pan so that they don’t fall apart. The larger ones particularly have a tendency to do this. Cook on medium-low until the bottom of the crab cakes is golden brown. Turn them over, and continue cooking until the second side is nicely browned. Watch that they don’t burn. This makes 10 appetizer servings, or six main course servings, enough for two to three people.

If you plan to serve them as a main course, keep the rest of the meal simple. In working out this recipe, I discovered that the best crackers to use are those called Club crackers, Toppables or butter crackers. The name varies with the brand. This type of cracker adds more flavor than plain soda crackers, and, because they are not highly seasoned, their own taste doesn’t overpower the other ingredients. You’ll need about 15 crackers, finely crushed, for the recipe.

Good food, great entertainment, grand company; celebrate Arnprior’s 150th birthday this weekend

Grill over medium heat for 15-20 minutes and enjoy. Farm Boy™ Chicken Breast Kebabs $7.99/lb, $17.61/kg

Stone Fence Theatre celebrates Schoolhouse days, Mac Beattie EMC events - Stone Fence Theatre is taking time out from preparing for its 10th season to come to Arnprior this Sunday, June 10. The theatrical company is presenting a tribute to legendary Arnprior musician Mac Beattie as part of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150 celebrations. The musical tribute is scheduled for 1 p.m. at the stage in Robert Simpson Park. Like all other 150 events, admission is free. Later this summer, the company, which specializes in â&#x20AC;&#x153;putting the Ottawa Valley onstage,â&#x20AC;? will be presenting an inspiring play that celebrates the one-room schoolhouse era and the teachers who worked so hard to help their students succeed. Schoolhouse, by Leanna Brodie, is a play that will be appreciated by people of every age, whether they attended one of the old schools or simply wondered what it was like to do so. Schoolhouse is not a musical play, but it features lively music by Peter Brown, with Ish Theilheimer, feature performers, The March Kids, and plenty of singing by the students. The premiere is July 26, with two Early Bird Special performances on July 17 and 19. The show will be performed as supper theatre, with a traditional Ottawa Valley

The renowned Arnprior race horse of the 1950s, Dalyce Blue, was inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame May 25 at Woodbine. Shown above is Dalyce Blue and his trainer and driver Dr. John Findley of Madawaska Farms of Arnprior, receiving a trophy from Georges Giguere, racing secretary at Richelieu Park in Montreal. Dalyce Blue was the first Canadianbred trotter to record a sub-2:10 mile as a two-year-old and a 2:05 mile at three. Dr Findley was inducted into the Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame in 1997. The honour is timely, given that this year is Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th anniversary and Dr. Findley has been one of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most prominent citizens.

roast beef dinner, in summer on July 26, Aug. 1, 9, 16, and Saturdays in fall: Sept. 29, Oct. 13, 20 and 27. The early bird specials do not include supper. All shows are at the Eagleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest at the Eganville Community Centre. Supper theatre tickets cost $42 for adults and $30 for youth under 18. Early bird tickets cost $22. The box ofďŹ ce phone number is toll-free at 1-866-310-1004. Tickets can also be purchased on the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, www.stonefence.ca. The setting and theme of Schoolhouse â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the old one-room schoolhouses and the dedicated teachers who worked in them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be very familiar to local audiences. Directing the play is Chantal Elie Sernoskie of Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Schoolhouse is a great play to celebrate education and as much as the topic of a one-room school house will ring home to many people in the community,â&#x20AC;? says Sernoskie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This play is more intimately about being an outsider.â&#x20AC;? Schoolhouse is set in 1938 in a one-room schoolhouse in a small town in rural Ontario. Miss Linton (Stone Fence Theatre veteran Christine Helferty) is an 18-year-old teacher fresh out of Normal School, as she ďŹ nds herself facing her ďŹ rst class of students, and a big heap of challenges.

Bittersweet Gallery’s Cheryl Babineau hosted a L’OVE Becomes You event in Burnstown May 28. Anyone who purchased a piece from Anne Marie Chagnon’s OVE collection received a luminous egg candle, like the one Babineau is seen holding in front of the OVE collection with Lynn Griffiths and Keltie Purcelle, volunteers with Ovarian Cancer Canada looking on. The luminous egg candles were given to everyone who purchased a one of Chagnon’s pieces, or made a donation to Ovarian Cancer. There are some remaining luminous egg candles available to visitors at Bittersweet who wish to make a minimum donation of $10 to Ovarian Cancer Canada and were unable to make the event. Burnstown resident Denyse Campeau has recently been appointed director of development for Ovarian Cancer Canada and the gallery hopes to work with her in future to create a mini-walk in Burnstown.

There was plenty of fun to be had during the L’OVE Becomes You event at Bittersweet Gallery. The event featured jewelry from Anne Marie Chagnon’s collection and Babineau offered luminous egg candles to anyone who purchased pieces or donated to the Ovarian Cancer Canada. In keeping with the egg theme, chef/caterer Gunnar Guckes of Tastefunatic Grassy Bay Getaway (centre) created some ‘love bites’ for patrons to savour.

When the first settlers arrived, it was the perfect location to locate a village for a variety of reasons, but none more important than the water access. 7) Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first mayor was John Harvey who served two terms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one in 1892 and a second in 1903. He also served a term as reeve in 1895.

The following intriguing Arnprior historical tidbits were compiled by the Arnprior 150 Anniversary Committee. 1) Arnprior was incorporated as a village in 1862 and as a town in 1892 when the population reached 3,200. Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first village council in 1862 included Eric Harrington (reeve), Daniel McLachlin, William Carss, James Havey, and Thomas Toy. A.H. Dowswell was clerk, and George Craig was appointed treasurer. 2) According to the 2011 census, the population of Arnprior has surpassed 8,000 (8,114) for its highest number of residents ever. The townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population jumped more than 13 per cent since the 2006 Census figures were released. The earliest recorded population figure for Arnprior was 3,746. That was in 1897! 3) Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famous landmark is the former Post Office, now home to the Arnprior & District Museum. The original building was constructed in 1896, and was based on a design by Thomas Fuller, the original architect of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. 4) Although there were settlers in the area since the early 1800s such as the McGonigals and Haveys, the first promoter of development at the mouth of the Madawaska River was Archibald McNab, the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Last Laird of the Clan McNabâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. This Highland Chief fled his creditors in Scotland, and was granted permission to settle 81,000 acres of land and water in what is now McNab-Braeside Township. In 1825, McNab brought over almost 100 families from Scotland. By 1843 the settlers had rebelled against McNabâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feudal leadership, and by petition and legal action forced him to leave the area. 5) In 1831, brothers Andrew and George Buchanan built a small sawmill and timber bridge on the Madawaska River. The Buchanan brothers and Chief Archibald McNab named the settlement Arnprior after the small village of Arnprior in Scotland. The name means â&#x20AC;&#x153;the section of land (arn) belonging to a priory.â&#x20AC;? The mills were abandoned a few years later and the area turned into a virtual ghost town. However, the

Remembering Mac Beattie and a princely visit to Arnprior

8 - Arnprior’s Mac Beattie was the first person ever enshrined into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame. Stone Fence Theatre will offer a musical tribute to Beattie during the 150th celebration Sunday, June 10 at 1 p.m. in Robert Simpson Park.

8) In 1981, Arnprior’s Mac Beattie was the first person ever enshrined into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame. The leader of the famed Melodiers – formed in the 1930s by local musicians including Beattie, Gaetan Fairfield, Mervyn Leitch and Harold Mosley – the group thrived in the heyday of radio and had numerous appearances on the very popular Don Messer Jubilee television show. The Melodiers provided opportunities for many of the Valley’s most talented musicians. These included Garnie Scheel, Reg Hill, Al Utronki, Bob Whitney, Jim Mayhew and many, many more. His good friend Hill was also inducted to the Hall in 1981, right after Mac. 9) The Arnprior Fair has been around longer than Arnprior has been a town! The fair has been running continuously since 1852. 10) The hydro dam along the Madawaska River became operational in 1976, creating a new body of water known as Lake Madawaska (aka the Head Pond). It was the fifth and final hydro dam constructed on the Madawaska. 11) Arnprior has been served by the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital since 1945. The original hospital building was once the home of Daniel McLachlin, grandson of Daniel, the town’s founder. The story goes that when he was approached about selling the home for use as a hospital, he simply walked into town hall and handed over the keys. 12) The Canada Central Railroad first reached Arnprior on Dec. 6, 1864 and the Canadian Pacific Railway came to town on March 23, 1880. The town was served by both major railways throughout most of the 20th century. 13) On the site of the current Galilee Centre along the Ottawa River (formerly the McLachlin Estate), there stands a Royal Oak tree, planted in 1860 by His Royal Highness, Edward, the Prince of Wales on his visit to Arnprior. He would later become King Edward VII. 14) The Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC, the town’s only current newspaper, was first published in 1879 (then it was the Arnprior Chronicle) and continues to be delivered to thousands of area homes each week. Among the former publishers was one-time mayor R.A. Jeffery. In

13 - A Royal Oak that stands at Galilee Centre (formerly the McLachlin Estate) was planted in 1860 by Edward, the Prince of Wales on his visit to Arnprior. 2012 it has the distinction of being the longest continuously serving business in Arnprior. 15) The majestic Gillies Grove is located in the middle of Arnprior. It is a 45-acre (180,000square-metre) tract of old-growth forest preserving majestic white pines, among numerous other species of trees, which were the foundation of the local lumbering industry. It is also home to a number of wildlife species and was once home to the largest basswood in Canada. It was originally recognized as a treasure by David A. Gillies in the 1930s when the land came into his possession. Gillies Grove is a rare remnant of the magnificent forest that once covered this region and is recognized as one of the last old-growth forests in the province.

12 - Arnprior was served by both major railways throughout most of the 20th century. Canada Central Railroad first reached town in 1864 and the Canadian Pacific Railway came in 1880. The CPR station, above, was at one of the best groomed areas in town.

Lumber company closed its doors in 1929. 23) Arnprior Jr. B Packers equipment manager Bruce Armsden has entered his 55th year with the organization in 2012. 24) In December 1955, the Royal Canadian Mint made up a special order of 2,000 silver dollars for employees of Playtex in Arnprior. These coins had 2 and ½ water lines at the right end of the canoe. This was similar to the accidental disappearance of water lines on the silver dollar versions from 1950-1951. The 1955 dollars caught the interest of many collectors and it was this version that led to the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;? being applied to any dollar with an appearance of missing water lines.

ant Charles Van Laughton. She sailed with convoy ONM-249 on August 19, 1944. She spent the rest of the Second World War serving in the Atlantic as a convoy escort. After the end of the war in June 1945, Arnprior was refitted at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Newfoundland and Labrador. 29) Arnprior native Will Colbert was the first local player drafted by the NHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa Senators and the only local player drafted by two NHL teams. Colbert, a defenseman, was chosen in the seventh round of the 2003 entry draft. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign with the Senators, and re-entered the draft where he was chosen two years later in the sixth round by the San Jose Sharks. Colbert is a former captain of the Ottawa 67â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. 30) Arnprior District High School was founded in 1876 and the first principal was William C. Middleton. The first student body included 49 girls and 31 boys. In 2011-12, enrolment at the school was just under 800. 31) Arnprior was a long-time host to a Canada Day hockey series where dozens of minor hockey teams battled every summer. Among those who have participated in the tournament are former NHL stars including Steve Yzerman, Tom Barrasso, Ray Sheppard, and Brian Leetch. 32) In 2001, Canadian country music star Paul Brandt filmed part of his video â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Small Towns and Big Dreamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in Arnprior. Many recognizable shots of the town can be found in the final cut of the video.

26 - Ottawa Valley storyteller, song-writer, poet and author Bernie Bedore was an Arnprior native. Bedore is best known for authoring books on the tales of the legendary Big Joe Mufferaw, and creating Mufferaw characters that have become part of Canadian folklore.

Station demolished despite efforts 33) The Arnprior Jr. B Packers have had two head coaches with NHL playing experience – Randy Pierce and Corey Foster. Both played for rugged coaches in the NHL with Pierce patrolling the wing under the watchful eye of Don Cherry in Colorado, while Foster played along the blueline with Paul Holmgren behind the bench in Philadelphia. 34) Arnprior District High School is known for having the longest hallways of all schools in Ontario. 35) The Arnprior CPR train station, a beautiful stone building in its day, was demolished in September of 1981 after decades of train starts and stops along William Street. It was witness to travellers from far and wide, including troops leaving and returning home from two world wars, as well as being a viewing spot as PM John Diefenbaker’s casket made its way out west. The station was located near the current fire hall and OPP station. The station was demolished, despite a valiant fight by the Arnprior and District Historical Society, the council of the day and other special interest groups to preserve the building. In the end, CPR decided to swing the wrecking ball. 36) Arnprior native Casey Corbin has made a name for himself on the Canadian comedy scene, performing across the county including major comedy festivals such as Just For Laughs. He has worked with all the top acts in Canadian comedy and has opened headliners such as Mike MacDonald, Mitch Hedberg, Russell Peters and Harland Williams. He can

also be seen on the Comedy Network with his hour-long special entitled Comedy Now, which, when it was being taped, drew the first standing ovation in the program’s 11-year history. Another feather in his cap: He was nominated for funniest newcomer at the Canadian Comedy Awards in 2001 and 2002. Nope, no joke! 37) The Arnprior Jr. B Packers are the top tier hockey team in town. But where did the name Packers come from? According to long-time team trainer and equipment manager Bruce Armsden, each letter represents a company that was in town when the team was formed. P = Playtex, A = Arnprior (Town of), C = Canadian Public Booth, K = Kenwood, E = Emergency Measures, R = Reid Brothers, S = Smiths Construction. 38) Bill Beattie was one of the town’s first fire chiefs, a post he held from 1914 to 1954. He is the longest serving chief in the town’s history. His pay for his first year with the brigade was $1.75. 39) Founded in 1868, the Arnprior Curling Club has enjoyed a long and illustrious history in Arnprior. Curling has been a popular sport here since 1865 when games were played on open-air rinks on the Madawaska River. 40) The original Arnprior District High School building was erected on the current site in 1875. It was a four-room brick building and was built for the sum of $6,212. Other additions and expansions have taken place over the years, but the section that was the original building was destroyed by fire in 1977.

38 - Bill Beattie, one of the town’s first fire chiefs, held the post from 1914 to 1954. He is the longest serving chief in Arnprior’s history.

Congratulations to

R0011426693

Throughout the past 150 years, the solid and traditional way of life of rural Ontarians, as typified in the Town of Arnprior and its residents, has prevailed. Well known throughout the Ottawa Valley as a community steeped in tradition, especially reflective of its early Scottish settlers, Arnprior pioneered the early logging industry which ultimately led to further development and settlement of the Ottawa Valley. Arnprior over the last decade has enjoyed a growth in population. This can be directly attributed to the beautiful scenic appeal of the Town and wonderful community spirit which continues to prevail 150 years later. I would like to extend my Congratulations to the residents of Arnprior on this momentous Anniversary. May all enjoy the celebrations marking this milestone.

Arnprior on 150 Years!

35 - The Arnprior CPR train station on William Street was demolished in September 1981, despite a valiant fight by the Arnprior and District Historical Society, the council of the day and other special interest groups to preserve the building. The suggestions for the building included a courtroom, community college classes, theatre, arts centre and a library, but it was all to no avail.

Historic buildings

41 -Arnprior’s town hall is named the Henry A. Murdoch Building in honour of the town’s longest-serving reeve, who held numerous positions around the council table in his more than 20 years as an elected official. Murdoch served as reeve from 1972-74 and again from 1986 to 1997, and also served a term as Renfrew County warden. The building was dedicated in his name on April 14, 1997. Below, Murdoch opens the 1987 Arnprior Fair.

41) Arnprior’s town hall is named the Henry A. Murdoch Building in honour of the town’s longest-serving reeve. Murdoch held numerous positions around the council table in his 20+ years as an elected official. He served as reeve from 1972-74 and again from 1986 to 1997, and also served a term as Renfrew County warden. The building was dedicated in his name on April 14, 1997. Murdoch passed away in late 2011 at the age of 91. 42) One of the most recognizable buildings in Arnprior’s downtown is at 169 John St. – the current home of Scotiabank. The first occupant of this building was the Bank of Ottawa, established in 1874 by several Ottawa Valley lumbering families. The bank prospered, but by 1917 needed additional capital. The Bank of Nova Scotia was looking to expand at the same time, and the banks amalgamated in 1919. 43) The Arnprior Jr. B Packers have retired the numbers of five players – Terry Ryan (#16), Kevin Leckie (#5), Jon Brunette (#7), John Stanton (#20) and, most recently, Matt Box (#8). Their sweaters hang in the rafters at the Bert Hall Arena at the Nick Smith Centre. 44) Movie-goers frequent the historic O’Brien Theatre on John Street, but the location dates back to 1906 when Arnprior’s first theatre was built – the Theatorium. The current building was built as the Casino Theatre in 1919, and completely renovated and renamed the O’Brien Theatre in 1929 with the introduction of motion pictures. The latest renovation in 2000 saw the addition of a second screen and restored the building to its former glory. 45) One of the best kept secrets in Arnprior is its airport, located behind Arnprior Aerospace (formerly Boeing). Owned by the Town of Arnprior and run by the Arnprior Airport Commission, the airport is classified as a registered airport with customs clearance. It serves both recreational and general air traffic, and is used by Medivac, Ontario Hydro, the OPP, the Canadian Armed Forces, among other groups and businesses. 46) The Arnprior Golf Club was constructed in 1924 with golfers hitting the links on the new 9-hole course in the 1925 season. J.S. Moir was the club’s first president. The original clubhouse was constructed by M. Sullivan & Son Ltd. 47) Arnprior District High School’s motto is “Hodie Non Cras” – translated means, “Today, Not Tomorrow”. 48) Arnprior was home to a former high-ranking Liberal MP and Cabinet Minister. Joe Greene, an Arnprior lawyer, was Minister of Agriculture in Lester B. Pearson’s cabinet, and later was Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources in the cabinet of Pierre Trudeau. Greene ran for the Liberal Party leadership in 1968, but missed garnering the top job in his attempt. He was appointed to the Senate in 1972 and served as a senator until his passing in 1978.

Looking back on how Arnprior celebrated its centennial The following editorial ran in the Arnprior Chronicle after Arnprior’s Centennial celebrations in 1962. “The Tumult and the Shouting Dies The Captains and the Kings Depart.” -Rudyard Kipling“Your centennial was wonderful; thanks very much Arnprior.” a former resident exclaimed to The Chronicle before leaving for home on the weekend. That just about explains the sentiments of most of those who came, saw, and were conquered. It’s a mighty nice feeling to realize that Arnprior’s Centennial celebrations were a great success, especially for those who served on the general Centennial Committee and as committee chairmen and members. The Chronicle and its readers are sincerely indebted to Mrs. W. H. Hamilton, a farmer’s wife and our correspondent for Glasgow Station, for her very wonderful tribute in an editorial, ‘Glimpses from the Past’ published with this article. A keen observer, Mrs. Hamilton was a writer on the staff of The Farmers’ Sun prior to her marriage and has contributed many very interesting and introspective articles to the paper during the past, for which we thank her. Very few incidents marred the success of Centennial Week, There was some vandalism, of course, particularly in the end-of-the-celebration removal of various decorations from the business section. One of these was that of a Canadian ensign, six feet by three feet, from in front of The Chronicle Office. It had remained in place from July 1 for two weeks. It seems a little strange to us that anyone would “take” a Canadian ensign!

Everything considered, the Centennial of Arnprior’s incorporation as a village proved to be one of the biggest and gaudiest weeks in its history. May we all be spared to celebrate the municipality’s 100th birthday as a town in 1992. GLIMPSES FROM THE PAST

With the tumult and the shouting died away, and Centennial Week already slipping into history, the citizens of Arnprior and district (and their many quests) must have a host of delightful memories to carry with them as they trudge forward through the gateway of another century. The week-long program so wellplanned and well-conducted appealed, naturally, to different people ways. For instance, there were those Arnprior ‘natives’, now living in other parts, who welcomed the celebration as an excellent excuse to come back to the old home town, to seek out haunts of earlier days and renew old friendships. There were those (and not all young folk) for whom the highlights of the week were the ball games and sporting events. Other intrepid types gaily arose at the break of dawn to enjoy the novelty of shanty breakfasts cooked out-of-doors. Still others didn’t mind missing the beans and flapjacks, as long as they managed to find themselves strategic positions from which to get a good view of all the parades. Others, again went all out for the week of unmitigated fun – midway rides, community bonfires, fireworks, the chance to “tamarack ‘er down” in the middle of John Street – in short, to raise general whoop-de-do. And there was a minority group (of which I happened to be one) who thought that the very nicest part of the whole celebration was the wonderful job done by certain tireless

people in bringing to the fore nostalgic glimpses of Arnprior Village and its surrounding farm lands as they were in the days of long ago. For their part in this, the merchants of the town deserve great credit. Personally, I could have quite happily spent a whole day viewing all those fascinating windows and felt it time well spent, without going near the town park or the fair grounds at all. They were so many, and of such absorbing interest, that I couldn’t begin to list or describe them all. Groups of people like myself could be seen meandering up and down the streets any day of the week, now gazing in rapture at the wonderful collection of ancient furniture in the windows of the Boyce store, now viewing the lovely ladies of 1862 posing in Osborne’s and Cord’s interesting display of old-time photographic equipment, now dropping into Beamish’s to purchase something from one of the sweet, old-fashioned misses in gingham gowns and poke bonnets – to mention only a few. Then there was the museum, in itself worth driving many miles to see. The lovely old stone house which once belonged to the Grierson family and is now the property of the IOOF, was an ideal setting for the hundreds of priceless treasures collected by the Women’s Institutes of Arnprior, Braeside, and surrounding rural branches. Stepping through the wide doorway was like stepping into a pioneer home of another century. The first sound I heard was the sweet, mellow tones of an old organ, played by a charming, old-fashioned lady. There it was in a corner of the “parlor” – let no one dare call it a living-room – along with an authentic horse-hair sofa, settees and rocking chairs, a what-not in another corner, a hand-carved centre table which none of us could even move, let alone try

The Arnprior Chronicle Cenntennial issue of Thursday, July 19 to lift, old-time pictures on the walls and a rag carpet on the floor. The bedroom opposite held a great, four-poster bed complete with canopy and handmade quilt, a wooden wash stand with pitcher and washbowl, and a baby’s wooden cradle. Next the dinning-room with its long table and sideboard shelves, exquisitely laid silver, pewter, cutlery and delicate chinaware. And the pioneer kitchen had its ancient wood burning stove, its deal table, its baby high-chairs and its spinning-wheels. Upstairs there were scores of smaller articles, veritably a collector’s paradise, all carefully tagged and inscribed with their individual histories. They ranged all the way

from uniforms worn in the Boer War to dainty christening robes, heavy black sad-irons and flails for the threshing of the farmers’ grain. What work and energy was entailed in searching out the numerous items and assembling them so painstakingly can only be imagined. Of course, it’s just one of the things the Women’s Institute can always be relied upon to do, and do well. But, when votes of thanks are being handed out to all the hard-working committees who helped make Arnprior Centennial the success it undoubtedly was, here’s hoping the W.I.’s and the town merchants get their share of the bouquets. They well deserve it,

An abbreviated history of Arnprior

Tom Johnston served as editor of The Chronicle from 1936 t0 1957. His weekly column, Ramblin’ Round was very popular. 62 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, June 7, 2012

The following are excerpts from the Stewartville Women’s Institute Archives, submitted by Anita Schubrink. Arnprior was named in 1831 by the Buchanan Brothers, Arnprior’s first lumbermen, whom Archibald, the Laird of McNab, claimed as relatives. He gave them a free mill site and provided them with timber at a very low cost. The name was a compliment to themselves and to McNab after the ancestral balliewick in Scotland. The origin of the name Arnprior is the Priory on the Arn (river). A Priory is a monastic house presided over by a ‘prior’ or ‘prioress’, and the Arn is a small stream in Sterlingshire, Scotland. Arnprior town is within the boundaries of McNab Township, Renfrew County, Province of Ontario, Canada. It is on Highway 17, about 35 miles west of Ottawa, Canada’s capital city. The town lies on the banks of Chat Lake, a widening of the Ottawa River at the mouth of the once turbulent tributary, the Madawaska River. There is an excellent water supply available and a broad recreation area in the vicinity of the picturesque town. Air and bus services are available. Between the two large cities of Montreal and Toronto, and only 100 miles from the St. Lawrence shipping lanes, Arnprior is ideally located for industry in Eastern Ontario’s Golden Triangle. 1823 – Archibald McNab came to Canada and was eventually to arrange for settlement of a newly surveyed township, which he had permission to name after himself. 1843 – McNab was expelled from the township and the people were free to live their own lives and build a future for themselves and their families. 1850 – McNab Township, in the United Counties of Lanark and Renfrew, was incor-

porated under the Municipal Institutions Act of 1849, enacted by the Parliament of United Canada. It is recorded in the McNab Township minutes that a meeting of the United Townships of McNab and Bagot was held at the home of John McIntyre, Flat Rapids, for the purpose of electing five councillors. 1851 – The first Daniel McLachlin purchased the land wherein began the village of Arnprior. 1853 – James Morris, Reeve of McNab Township, was warden of the United Counties of Lanark and Renfrew. 1861 – McNab Township became part of Renfrew county, which separated that year from Lanark County and was incorporated. 1862 – Arnprior was incorporated as a village. 1892 – Arnprior was incorporated as a town. 1901 – Arnprior, an incorporated town in Renfrew County, Ontario, is on the main line CPR and also on the Ottawa Division Grand Trunk Railroad, 38 miles from Ottawa, containing shingle, planning, roller, saw and wollen mills, two telegraph offices, 32 stores, nine churches, six hotels, two sash and door factories, one boat factory, two banks, and a large lumber trade. Marble quarries and an iron mine are in the vicinity. Population in 1901 was 4,152 (Lovell’s Gazette – 1908).

A well-deserved congratulations to M. Sullivan Editor’s note: The following letter was first penned by Arnprior resident Doug Scheels in February 2004. He resubmitted it as this year for Arnprior’s 150th birthday, as the Sullivan family has played a major role in its history. Scheels notes the since the letter was written, Mort Sullivan died in March 2007 and his nephew, Tom Sullivan, passed away on Jan. 14. Sadly, this is the end of an era, he concludes. To the editor: Congratulations to M. Sullivan and Sons Ltd. of Arnprior for achieving not one, but three milestones. You have done not only the company proud, but our town of Arnprior as well. You are the oldest and most successful privately owned construction company in Canada. And, in 2004 you are celebrating 90 years in business, now into the fourth generation of family ownership. The business has been recognized by the Ontario General Contractors Association on the achievement of over one million manhours without a lost-time injury up to 2004.

The company is commended by four leading business authorities as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 2003. I applaud you in your success. To reach these goals, there has been strong leadership throughout the decades, and along with faithful and dedicated long-time employees. The company was founded by Maurice Sullivan, whose three sons were Harry and Dom (both deceased), while Mort remains keenly involved with the firm for 72 years. He is presently the chairman while his nephew, Tom, is the president. Harry, Dom and Mort all shared in their father’s business. Since the 1930s I do recall many family names and projects pertaining to this organization. In their early years of business, when one would phone the company, a Bell operator would say “number please” and one would and “84.” Times have sure changed. Two of the earlier employees, both carpenters, were Adam Carriveau and Charles Kauffeldt, whose grandson, Hal Kauffeldt, is now the manager of the building supplies. How could one forget John Kuash, who was

the manager for 50 years? Probably a record for continuous long-term employment as an employee belongs to Gib Tourangeau, now in his 61st year, and presently as the service manager. I remember seeing Harry, Tom’s father, figuring out the cost of a new home, using the back of a cigarette pack, at what was then Beattie’s restaurant in the old stone building now demolished at the western end of the bridge. Now, it is computers. When working in the Torbolton Township area in the 1940s, some of the parishioners of the St. Thomas Anglican Church at Woodlawn related to me that Sullivan’s from Arnprior, as their project, built their stone church. Recently in a casual conversation with Tom, he mentioned the building of Renfrew Victoria Hospital in 1925 only making profit of less then $4,000. The following year, they requested that more work be done, which further lowered their profit. In thinking of this hospital, Helen and I attended the opening of the latest addition in 2002. To see four generations of the Sullivan

family present at the function was indeed an honor. Their construction of two buildings in town bring back some childhood memories. One being the combined skating rink and curling club on Elgin Street, built in 1934. With a perimeter scaffold, men would wheelbarrow the cement around for the foundation. It was a backbreaking job, unheard of in today’s world. Also, during the building of the new Kenwood office building on William Street in the late thirties, one would see the workmen ground remove the white-hot rivets from the firepot, using tongs about 18 inches long, would then toss the rivets some 20 feet high to a workman standing on a steel girder. He would then hold the funnel-shaped steel bucket by the handle to catch those rivets. For a youngster, this was a great circus-type entertainment. These are just some of my many early memories; no doubt other folk have more to share. The Sullivan firm can be justly proud of their accomplishments and may the family business continue on into more generations.

Arnprior agricultural fair has been around even longer than the town itself The following was an article first published in the Arnprior Chronicle in 1986. It was submitted by Lois MacMillan of Braeside. Agriculture Fairs have been going since 1792 in Ontario, the first one being held at Niagara-on-the-Lake, then known as ‘Newark’ and devoted to the improvement of Agriculture. Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simco was patron of the society and subscribed 10 guineas annually toward its support. Arnprior Agriculture Society got its start in the year 1854 on a farm property loaned for the purpose. It was a small but very effective fair

and has been carried on each year since. As little information can be found on the earlier years, there seemed to be a trend to a bigger and better fair each year. In 1933, Alex Staye erected a dance platform to help raise money to purchase the fairgrounds. By that time they already had some buildings and the admission was 35 cents adults daytime, 25 cents adults after six o’clock and children under-16 free at all times. Local trucks were charged $1 and outside trucks $3. In 1940, Ottawa cancelled their fall fair and Arnprior was thinking of cancelling too, but a trip to Kempt-

ville District Meeting and after listening to Mr. J.A. Carroll, Superintendent of Societies, they decided to go ahead, as he told them they were necessary part in our ‘Win the War’ program. In 1941, at the annual meeting held in Carp April 3, Dr. E.F. Johnston, president of the Association of Fairs in Ontario, was the speaker and told those present that a fair board should be alive and working all year around, not only at fair time. He also emphasized the need for more young people on the board, and the great work the Junior Clubs were doing throughout Ontario.

In June 1941 on a Motion of Mrs. Moorenouse and Mr. Frank Boese, an approach was made to Mrs. Cook in regards to purchase of her farm for the fairgrounds. A committee of Mr. Miller, Mr. McNab, Mr. Rudd and Mr. Moore of the Arnprior Royal Bank completed the deal in July, for what has become known as the Arnprior Agriculture fairgrounds of today. Also in 1941, 25 per cent of all prize money was dedicated as a membership fee for the following year. In 1945, president Ewert Miller, secretary Witt Murphy, Mr. E. Fraser

and Alex Staye approached Mr. E. Cotie as to buying the existing race track for the society, as horse racing was already a big drawing card for the fair. In 1948 the driving club used the race track in return for fixing up the barns and keeping the grounds presentable. In that year, the Legion was given permission to make a baseball diamond in the centre field. In 1962, the first discussion took place between the curling club and the society, then in 1969 the Agriculture Society and the curling club agreed on a new building, which has become a real asset to both parties.

51 - Arnprior District High School graduate Todd Nicholson led Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sledge hockey team in numerous international tournaments, including the Paralympic Winter Games, and earned tournament all-star team berths multiple times. Nicholson competed in the Games in 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010, winning a bronze, silver and gold medal along the way.

49) Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trevor Timmins has had a hand in shaping both the Ottawa Senators and the Montreal Canadiens in close to 20 years in the NHL. Timmins, currently the Director of Procurement and Player Development with the Canadiens, he is primarily responsible for overseeing and directing the Canadiensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; amateur scouting system, including the annual NHL Entry Draft and amateur free-agent recruitment. He was with the Sens in different roles from 1992 through 2001, and is now entering his 11th season with the Canadiens. On draft day, you can see him on the stage handing the Habs jersey over to the draft choices. 50) Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rita Clouthier is only one of two people in Canada to have organized Terry Fox Runs in her community since its inception in 1981. Her dedication to the cause was rewarded with an Arnprior visit from Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mom Betty a number of years ago. Clouthierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort to motivate local participants and keep Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream alive, has resulted in more than a quarter-million dollars being raised locally for cancer research over the years. 51) Arnprior District High School graduate Todd Nicholson has captained Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sledge hockey team in numerous international tournaments, including the Paralympic Winter Games, and earned tournament all-star team berths multiple times. He competed in the Games in 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006 and 2010, winning a bronze, silver and gold medal along the way. He was also part of two world championship Canadian teams. Nicholson was Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flag bearer at the 2006 Games in Torino and the team went on to win the gold medal. 52) The Arnprior District Civic Centre was officially opened to the public on September 12, 1978 and was one of the finest small town recreation facilities in the province, boasting two ice pads, a 25-metre pool and a community hall. It was renamed the Nick Smith Centre on October 6, 2001 in honour of Smith who was a huge proponent of the facility and recreation in the town. 53) Switchboard operators for the Bell Telephone Company used to connect incoming and outgoing calls to local residents. Their office was on John Street in the building which is currently home to Mather Real Estate and Insurance. 54) Some popular rock acts to play in Arnprior over the years include Max Webster, April Wine, Triumph, Honeymoon Suite and The Headstones. 55) The Arnprior Mall, now the Arnprior Shopping Centre, opened its doors to the public in 1975. The first five businesses in the mall were: A&P, the Hairloom, Ainslieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Economy Fair Drug Mart and The Met. Only two remain today â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Hairloom and A&P (now Metro).

Robert Simpson Park first land McLachlin saw 56) On May 15, 1960 an Arnprior institution opened its door – or serving window, actually. Wes’ Chips celebrated 50 years in 2010 with a special day where prices were similar to what they were when the business first opened. No surprise, the lineup was huge as people waited over an hour in line to get a box of fries. The chip stand served over 3,000 pounds of potatoes that day. Original owner Wes Dodds was on hand to serve up some fries for the special occasion. 57) Arnprior men’s curling teams won the prestigious Quebec Challenge Cup on more than one occasion. In 1897 the Arnprior curlers won with rinks skipped by W.J. Johnston and Archie Hood. Again, in 1960, Arnprior won the event with rinks skipped by Doug Farmer and A. Steele Campbell. Farmer’s team was comprised of Walter Flegal, Bernard Laderoute and Doug Macklem. Campbell’s foursome included Greg O’Neill, Nick Smith and Gerry Neumann. 58) On July 3, 1860, Prince Albert Edward, the Prince of Wales, paid a visit to Arnprior. In honour of the 150th anniversary of his visit, a wonderful re-enactment was held on July 3, 2010 with hundreds of people coming out to see the ‘prince’” step out of a birch bark canoe, visit local residents and enjoy a lunch. There was a rumour that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip would visit as they were to be in Ottawa for Canada Day, but the Queen did not attend the festivities in Arnprior. During the 1860 visit, a tree was planted by the prince on the property currently home to the Galilee Centre. The oak still stands today. 59) Tom Burnette served the town on the fire department for 45 years, 34 as the chief. He retired in 2010 as the second-longest serving chief in town history behind Bill Beattie who held the top spot on the department for 40 years. 60) Arnprior’s own Charles Macna-

mara has been dubbed one of the greatest naturalists and photographers of his time. While working for the McLachlin Lumber Company, he spent virtually all of his free time roaming the forests, fields and swamps near Arnprior. The plants and animals he encountered on his outings were diligently recorded in diaries lavishly illustrated with his photographs of the subjects. A field naturalists club in Arnprior and a nature trail/ game sanctuary in town are named in his honour. 61) Arnprior played host to the NHL’s Ottawa Senators rookie development training camp in 1995. Among those young players showcasing their talents was current Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson who had the coaching staff and media buzzing about the 23-year-old Swede who made his North American debut on the ice at the Arnprior Civic Centre. The surprise of the training camp, the sixth-round selection (133rd overall) in the 1994 entry draft carried that momentum into the regular season and won the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie. 62) There is a monument between the Arnprior Public Library and the river. The bell in that monument came from the original town hall, constructed in 1888. The stone came from a grist mill (Baird’s Mill) which formerly stood near that site. Constructed by Daniel McLachlin in the 1850s, the mill was lost to fire in the early 1970s. 63) Beautiful Robert Simpson Park was the site of the ‘Edgewood’ residence, built by Jack Usborne of an Ottawa Valley lumber family, who married Jessie McLachlin, daughter of Arnprior lumber baron Daniel McLachlin. The house was atop the hill overlooking the Ottawa River, on a piece of property that was the first in the area McLachlin set eyes upon when his boat pulled up to shore of Arnprior. The land was later given to the town and named after Simpson, a former Arnprior mayor who served the town for 16 years.

The Campbell House, top, was the largest hotel ever built in Arnprior. The three-storey building was situated at the busy corner of John and Elgin streets. Arnprior had seven hotels in the last two decades of the 19th century. Another well-known stopping place was the Madawaska Hotel, above.

64) The building at 114 John St. North (formerly Templeton Cleaners and now home to Simply Elegant) was once the tallest building in the Upper Ottawa Valley. It was considered a â&#x20AC;&#x153;skyscraperâ&#x20AC;? when it was ďŹ rst built in the 1880s to house the Arcade Department Store. 65) Six reeves of Arnprior have also served as warden of Renfrew County. They are Eric Harrington, R.G. Moles, W.J. Johnston, John Brennan, T.S. Church, and Henry Murdoch. 66) Arnprior has produced a number of talented golfers, but none were more decorated than Aveleigh Ransom of the Arnprior Golf Club who captured 27 ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; club championships, many Valley and Ottawa District championships and was a member of the Quebec ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team in the 1973 Canadian championship. 67) The townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst separate school was built in 1876 under the watchful eye of Rev. J.A.M. Chaine. The original school was a four-classroom, two-storey brick building on Albert Street and it was christened St. John Chrysostom School. Some years later another equivalent section was added to bring the total to eight classrooms. 68) The earliest newspaper published in Arnprior (then a village) was The Star, a daily newspaper with a circulation between 800 and 1,000 copies per day. The cost for home delivery was ďŹ ve cents per week and each copy sold for one penny. The publisher was J.H. Nicholson. It is believed the paper ceased publication in the 1870s. 69) Arnprior boasted seven hotels at one time from the 1875 era on through the turn of the century. The biggest hotel ever in town was the Campbell House â&#x20AC;&#x201C; built and operated by Archie Campbell. It was a three-storey building on the corner of John and Elgin streets, a location that was later home to the popular Sugar Bowl restaurant owned by the Moskos family. 70) Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recreation department

His father, Henry, served as the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third fire chief. 75) The McMillan Sand and Gravel sponsored womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broomball team based out of Arnprior captured the elite world championship in 2008 in Vancouver. The club has won numerous provincial titles over the past two decades. 76) Baseball fans know Tim Raines is one of the best players ever to wear the uniform of the Montreal Expos, and that he is a candidate for the Baseball Hall of Fame after an outstanding MLB career where he distinguished himself as one of the best leadoff hitters in history.

At both international competitions, she was a teammate of future Olympic gold medal-winning sprinter Glenroy Gilbert. 78) The ADHS senior boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 440-yard (4x110-yard) relay team of 1966 established an Ontario and Canadian record time of 43.2 seconds, en route to capturing the all-Ontario (OFSAA) gold medal in London, Ont. The team included Gord McLellan, Mike Marcellus, Campbell McKie and George Smith, and was coached by Wayne Oattes. According to the coach, the team had only been running together for about a week before setting the record. As a sidenote, the record still stands today, because in the early 1970s, race distances were measured in metres instead of yards, so their record is in the books and will never be beat as no one runs that distance anymore!

82, 85 - Lumber baron Daniel McLachlin first arrived in the area in 1851 and purchased 400 acres of land and waterpower rights on the Madawaska watershed in what was known as “Arnprior, Township of McNab” from the Middleton firm in Liverpool, England. At its peak, the McLachlin lumber company produced up to 60 million feet of lumber in a summer season, becoming the biggest manufacturer of sawn lumber in North America.

Forests fuelled early Arnprior 79) The Salute to the Valley was a festival that celebrated life in the Ottawa Valley. Hosted in Arnprior at Robert Simpson Park for a number of years beginning in the 1980s, it attracted thousands of visitors each summer thanks to big-name acts including Carroll Baker and the Tommy Hunter Show. Hunter’s performance in Arnprior drew an estimated crowd of 10,000. 80) For close to 50 years, Ben’s TV was a staple in downtown Arnprior – and many homes in town. They were in business when televisions were gaining popularity and through the booming years, always on the cutting edge of the technology of the day. In 2010, Ben and Mona Sauve closed their doors to their Arnprior store, having opened their original shop in Braeside in 1959. They relocated to the corner of John and Elgin streets in the early 1960s. 81) Former Arnprior Jr. B Packers head coach Randy Pierce is the only player in NHL history to be assessed a penalty for kissing a puck. Pierce, playing for the Colorado Rockies, was so thrilled with an insurance goal scored at 19:27 of the third period in a 7-4 win over the New York Islanders in Denver on November 28, 1979, that he kissed the puck and tossed it in the stands. Pierce, a Pakenham native, was given a two-minute delay of game penalty for delay of game. It was also the first time the Rockies defeated the Islanders. 82) Lumber baron Daniel McLachlin first arrived in the area in 1851 and purchased 400 acres of land and waterpower rights on the Madawaska watershed in what was known as “Arnprior, Township of McNab” from the Middleton firm in Liverpool, England. When McLachlin made his first trip to the area before the purchase, there was no village, just a former small lumbering operation that was in ruins and virtually abandoned. However, he saw something that would eventually grow into the town you call home today. 83) In 1853, a bridge was built over the Madawaska River (close to the current bridge) and a dam was built by the McLachlins. They also built a stone gristmill and began operation

79 - Tommy Hunter’s performance in Arnprior at Salute to the Valley drew an estimated crowd of 10,000. of a small sawmill. The gristmill was invaluable to the settlers of the area who, at one time, carried grain on their back to Bytown (Ottawa) or Perth to be milled. Then the task of attracting residents and businesses to the area began, with labourers, mechanics and tradesmen at the top of the list. The soon-to-be village began to grown and by 1897 the population hit 3,746 people. 84) While in Arnprior, Daniel McLachlin represented Renfrew County in the Legislature of the Province of Canada (1861-63), was on Arnprior’s first village council, and represented South Renfrew in the first Dominion parliament from 1867-69. 85) At its peak, the McLachlin lumber company produced up to 60,000,000 feet of lumber in a summer season to become the biggest manufacturer of sawn lumber in North America.

McLachlin Lumber played major role in town’s growth 86) The tallest memorial in the Arnprior cemetery is for Daniel and Maria McLachlin. It is marble and was cut from the island just below the weir and present bridge over the Madawaska River in town. It was then shipped to Ottawa where it was fashioned and polished. Author Leo Lavoie says, “It was a memento to a man who stood very tall in the eyes of his peers throughout his lifetime.” 87) McLachlin Brothers named their sawmills Numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4. The first was built in 1862 and was water-powered. Number 2 was built later that year. Number 3 was built in 1871 but was destroyed by fire four years later. It was replaced by a steam mill that, in 1892, the Toronto Globe described , as, “for size and cutting capacity stands at the head of its kind on the continent.” Number 4, also steam operated, was built in 1892. 88) When McLachlin Brothers lumbering was in its heyday in the late 1800s, the mills, along with the timber and logging projects, would employ up to 1,000 men in the winter months. That is a very impressive number as the population in Arnprior was hovering around 3,500 people at the time. 89) A shrill whistle at McLachlin Brothers Number 3 mill would signal the opening and shutdown of the plant each day. It has been said that with a prevailing wind, the whistle could be heard as far away as Almonte. 90) At the time of the McLachlin Brothers lumber company boom, local residents benefitted from having such a business in town. The surplus wood was sometimes sold for $1 a wagon load – all a team could haul. Houses and barns in the district were built and shingled for just a few dollars each. 91) Lumber pilers working for McLachlin Brothers needed to be able to handle heavy work. At the age of 14, a boy was proud when he was paid for piling the shorter pieces of lumber (six to 12 feet long), at 50 cents a day. Most people worked 10 hours a day, six days a week with McLachlin Brothers. 92) The Ottawa Exhibition was a booming fair in the early 1900s and the McLachlins realized this, so they did their part to make sure their employees and their families could attend. The lumber company made arrangements with CPR each year to operate a special train from Arnprior to Ottawa, returning the same evening. The mills and all lumbering operations would shut down for the day and most everyone, along with their families, would board the 10-car “sawdust special” train and head to the fair. McLachlins paid the entire bill including midway rides, ice cream and all the things kids love. 93) The turbine monument that stands near the bell monument beside the Arnprior Public Library was reclaimed from the Madawaska River when the present bridge and weir were built. That turbine was used in providing the first electric power in Arnprior. 94) Chats Lake (Ottawa River at Arnprior) has a number of submerged reefs and numerous

The monument is marble and was cut from the island just below the weir and bridge over the Madawaska River. shoals, making it a hazardous stretch of water. In the late 1800s, Capt. William Richards made detailed examinations of the lake by means of a small boat, devoting every spare hour he had to the survey. He set up charts that included water depth, islands, shoals and landmarks and was instrumental in allowing boats to safely navigate that 21-mile region from Arnprior as far as Chenaux. 95) McLachlin Brothers had a tug-boat built in 1918, and it was christened the Jean Macnamara, after the grand-daughter of the company’s secretary-treasurer Richard Macnamara. At the time, Jean was 12 years old. As the story goes, the naming of the boat caused quite a commotion at Jean’s school, and a fellow by the name of Alan Boyce walked the two miles to the boom camp to confirm the story. The “Jean” as it was called, was in service until the company ceased operations in 1929.

Ottawa River played key role in townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development

97 - There was once a ferry that crossed the Ottawa River near Arnprior, making a three-mile journey from Sand Point to Norway Bay. The boat, a 72-foot steel-hulled craft, christened the Norvic, was put into service in 1923 and taken off the water in 1962. Above, the wharf at Norway Bay. Top, the Chats Falls fleet.

96) Did you know Arnprior has a connection to Montana? Frank Cooney, who once worked at a grocery store on John Street in Arnprior while his family lived in town, was later elected governor of the State of Montana. He served in that capacity from 193335. 97) There used to be a ferry that crossed the Ottawa River near Arnprior, making a three-mile journey from Sand Point to Norway Bay. The boat, a 72-foot steel-hulled craft, christened the Norvic, was put into service in 1923. The boat was taken off the water in 1962. For those who are familiar with the Norvic, the vessel had a very distinctive and unique bow and stern shape. In about 2003, the easily recognizable hull of the boat was sited as the base of a refurbished yacht tied up at a marina on the Ottawa River near Rideau Falls. The boat was refurbished by Ottawa developer Bill Teron and relaunched in 1989. 98) The rafting of square timber down the Ottawa River began in 1806, and reached its peak between 1861 and 1891, before ending in 1909. Pine timber that was one to twofeet square and up to 40 or 50 feet long, were floated down the Madawaska River to rafting points on the Ottawa River. Cribs were then made up holding 20 to 40 pieces of timber and as many as 200 cribs were assembled into a raft and floated as far as Quebec City

It is in the vicinity of the initial location chosen by the Buchanan brothers in the 1830s. 100) The original timber bridge over the Madawaska River, dubbed in history books as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Millâ&#x20AC;? bridge, was the private property of the McLachlins, though the public used it at will. It ruptured in 1927 and a concrete replacement was built. This, in turn, was replaced with the current four-lane bridge.

Sugar Bowl a sweet oasis for locals for years 101) The current bridge over the Madawaska River in town was not always the main artery into Arnprior from the east side of the river. The old steel bridge was located up river and connected to Elgin Street. 102) What was probably the first golf course in the area, the McLachlins had a five-hole course just west of the original home built on the current site of the Oblates property, behind the hospital, overlooking the Ottawa River. This was the early 1900s. 103) The McLachlin Brothers sawmills ceased operation in 1929, but in 1934 Mill Number 3 reopened for five months to saw logs for J.R. Booth Company. The McLachlin lumber story’s final chapter was concluded on October 27, 1934 when the power was cut to the giant engines, never to be turned on again. 104) The M. in M. Sullivan & Son Ltd., one of Arnprior’s longest serving companies, stands for Maurice. A carpenter by trade, he launched the company in 1914 with five employees. It has stayed in the family ever since, first with his sons Harry, Dominic and Mort who took over the business in 1938 when Maurice passed away. 105) The Arnprior and District Historical Society was formed in May of 1978 and its first president was 18-year-old ADHS student Philip Powell, son of Marjorie and Harry Powell, long-time Arnprior residents. Philip was the youngest president of any historical society in Canada at the time. 106) The first telephones were installed in Arnprior in August of 1887 and 14 subscribers were listed. At the time, no phone numbers were used, but the “phone book” of the day contained the names of all telephone users in eastern Ontario and Quebec. If you wanted to speak to someone, you didn’t dial the number, you asked the operator to connect you to a specific person. 107) The Canadian Pacific Telegraph wires were installed in Arnprior in October of 1886. The telegraph office was in the Arnprior

Chronicle newspaper office and the telegraph operator was Henry Needham. 108) The Sugar Bowl restaurant, for many years located at the corner of John and Elgin streets, was a popular eatery and candy store for decades. It opened at that location in 1925, following the 1923 fire that destroyed the Campbell House hotel. Owned by the Moskos family, the business was originally located in what is now a parking lot between the Ben’s TV building and Simply Elegant, and was known as the Sugar Bowl Candy Kitchen. 109) According to Canada Post records, the first Postmaster in Arnprior was Isaac Gregory who held that position from 1841 until 1853. However, a newspaper article of the day stated the first post office serving the area was in Fitzroy with David Goodwin listed as Postmaster. 110) The post office in Arnprior has had a number of different homes. It was located at the northwest corner of Daniel and Elgin streets, and then moved to the northwest corner of Harriet and Elgin streets, the current location. It is then believed the post office was operated on Hugh Street. Then it moved to the southeast corner of Madawaska and Harriet streets. Then it moved to Elgin Street. Then, in 1896, it moved into the building that currently houses the museum. Then, in 1963, the post office moved to its current home. 111) An old bylaw dated April 5, 1893 appointed Henry Dodd as Chief Constable for the town, with other part-time constables on call. These part-time constables were paid 15 cents per hour for services performed between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., and 20 cents per hour between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. 112) The early public schools in Arnprior were located on the east side of Daniel Street between Elgin Street and the bridge. The first was in an area across from what was the Oddfellows Lodge on Daniel, and when enrolment increased, the upper storey of the present machine shop at the corner of Daniel and Rock Lane was utilized as a school.

108 - The Sugar Bowl restaurant was for many years located at the corner of John and Elgin streets. The popular James Moskos Confectionery eatery and candy store opened at that location in 1925, following the 1923 fire that destroyed the Campbell House hotel.

110 - Arnprior’s post office has had a number of locations over the years. Above, note the post office sign at the far right of the photo in 1904 on Elgin Street.

Compiled by Doug Scheels for the 150th Anniversary of the Town of Arnprior

Arnprior’s 2012 Senior of the Year Doug Scheels compiled the impressive map above that lists all the stores that are and were located in downtown Arnprior to help mark the 150th anniversary of the town. The map was created by Brittle Printing Ltd. Map courtesy of Brittle Printing and Doug Scheels.

Share memories or they will be lost forever Editor’s note: The following article was submitted by Arnprior’s 2012 Senior of the Year Doug Scheels. Scheels is a student of local history and will be around during this weekend’s 150 Anniversary festivities to share his memories. Memories only last a lifetime. After chatting with some senior citizens about their yester-year memories of our town hall, situated at the confluence Elgin Street and Madawaska Boulevard, many thoughts were shared. Cay McNaughton vividly recalls climbing all those stairs to the concert hall on the third floor. It had a large stage with the musicians seated in the ‘sunken area’ in front of the stage. Both local and out-of-town groups performed in the hall. Her elementary school graduation in 1932 took place there. The local ‘Walker Store’ sponsored a Wabasso Fashion show and demonstrated various fabrics and linens. Cay remembers Bonnie Pell (nee Laderoute), who was about four or five years old, dancing a routine and her pretty hairstyle matched the ever-present smile. Adult dances were held in the concert hall and, as the fashion was, the ladies would have ‘dance cards’ to tell them of the gentleman’s name for the next dance. Leo Lavoie acted in many plays performed by the local group. Rhona Neumann told me of a concert with Joyce (Chabot) Pecaskie tap-dancing with the accompaniment being played by her mother, Ella Chabot (nee Woermke). Miss Wilson was the V.O.N. nurse at that time and would teach young girls a first aid course, held on the third floor area. The first Baptist Church congregation, in the council chambers of that time, held fundraising bean suppers.

Doug Scheels

An Arnprior historian, who has written much of our local history, Bernie Bedore spoke of Rock Lane, and now the Robertson Furniture Store and law office. He told me that Tim Mulvihill, who taught gymnastics at the high school, would supervise the gymnastics, which took place between acts of plays, and he was a participant in such. One can realize the multiple uses of the town hall. Don mentioned of the old 75-mm or 3inch French cannon, which was displayed on the ‘island’ in front of the town hall building, but we aren’t aware of any photo when the cannon was placed or later removed from the site. I suspect that it had been scraped for the WW II effort. In 1909, almost a century ago, the ‘old boys’ reunion on the photo was taken on the original front steps of the building. Another photo taken in 1923 from the Elgin Street side shows the fire department volunteers and the old ‘steam pump-

er’, which was drawn by a ‘dapple grey’ team of horses. That photo lists all the names of the fire department at that time. The building also served as ‘living quarters’ for the fire chief and family. The fire chief then was Henry Tourangeau, whose son Stanley also became chief, and now later, the Police-Fire Services Building has been named after him. Mac Poole remembers of Henry Tourangeau ringing the large cast iron bell situated in the tower, and operated using a rope system. This was primarily to alert the firefighters and townsfolk, as well as, the area in the town where the fire happened. At that time the town was divided into four ‘wards’. This old bell is now located as a monument on Madawaska Boulevard between the library and the bridge. In 1934, the McLachlin #3 mill closed. Our family and many others were then on ‘relief’, today it is called welfare. James Jack was the welfare officer and both he and his son, Biggs, served as the town’s reeve in the past. I remember going with my mother to a small wicket at the town hall to show my worn out ‘gum rubbers’, as they were called, to receive a ‘slip’ (voucher). Then would go to the Farmer’s Shoe Store for a new pair. It was also the Depression Era of the 1930s. As a youngster, I walked up those many steps to the third floor and was amazed at the size of the hall, but wondered how those massive stage curtains could be opened and closed. I never had the opportunity to see a concert. Years have passed by too quickly. It is up to us as ‘keepers’ to share the memories of yester-years. Once they are gone, there is no turning back. None are etched in stone.

The name of former Arnprior fire chief Stanley Tourangeau, above, lives on in the fire-police services building.

Who can remember where the Sanitaris building stood and what was its purpose? See page 26 for the answer. Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, June 7, 2012 75

Arnprior library organized in 1895 in small room at town hall

117 - Four Arnprior baseball players were members of the Canadian Big League championship team in 1997. Jason Kiser, Steve Lamorie, Dan Lavallee and Matt Nych all played for the Ottawa West Crusaders team that won the Canadian title in Lanark and advanced to the Big League World Series in Florida.

114 - Wintario, Ontario’s biggest lottery of the day, held its weekly Thursday draw at the Arnprior Civic Centre on Nov. 3, 1983. Former Arnprior Chronicle-Guide publisher Derek Walter, left, was among those who got to push the button to choose winners at the big event.

113) One of the things that brought Kenwood to Arnprior was the water of the Madawaska River. (some may recall the water tower near the Kenwood building). Most textile mills have to put chemicals into the water they use, but for some reason, the Madawaska River water was just right the way it was. 114) Wintario, Ontario’s biggest lottery of the day, held its weekly Thursday draw at the Arnprior Civic Centre on Nov. 3, 1983. Televised across the province, the Wintario draws went from town to town and each episode featured local residents pushing the button to start the machines to drop the winning numbers. The draw in Arnprior was the “325th” Wintario draw and a plaque hangs on the wall at the Nick Smith Centre to commemorate the occasion. 115) The lighted cross atop St. John Chrysostom Church stands 211 feet above ground. 116) The Arnprior Public Library was organized in 1895 and the members of the first library board included Dr. W.H. Steele, George E. Neilson, R.G. Moles and John Tierney. The library was in a small room on the second floor of town hall and Miss Lily Slack was the first librarian. 117) Four Arnprior baseball players were members of the Canadian Big League championship team in 1997. Jason Kiser, Steve Lamorie, Dan Lavallee and Matt Nych all suited up for the Ottawa West Crusaders who won the Canadian title in Lanark and advanced to the Big League World Series in Florida. A commemorative sign hangs on the backstop at the Optimist Park baseball diamond in Arnprior to mark the achievement. 118) A hotel was set to be built in town in 1914 and was to be called “Del Prado,” which was touted to be the “Chateau Laurier” of Arnprior. It was to replace the Grand Union hotel at the southwest corner of John and Elgin streets and was designed by Ottawa architect Francis C. Sullivan. In July of 1914, construction was all set to go. But according to a very qualified source, the First World War put a stop to everything and the dream never materialized. 119) Patricia Robinson was Arnprior’s first female mayor and, at this point in history, the

She held the post from 1989 to 1994. 120) The Arnprior Jr. B Packers have won three Eastern Ontario Valley Division titles. Their first championship was in 1980, their second in 1994-95 and their third was in 201112. 121) The Arnprior Medical Centre, which is adjacent to the Arnprior & District Memorial Hospital, was built in 1976 and opened its doors in 1977. 122) The longest serving principal at Arnprior District High School was A.C. Ward. The Arnprior native held the top administrative position from 1935 until 1964.

125 - In 1955, Mayor Bob Simpson of Arnprior organized a delegation of prominent Arnprior citizens to travel to New York to convince Pfizer about the desirability of Arnprior as a location for a plant the pharmaceutical company was building. The plant opened in 1956 and operated continuously until sold by Pfizer in 2008. It now houses Pillar5 Pharma.

Football success not new to ADHS 123) Among some of the more famous early graduates of the Arnprior District High School are Percival J. Cooney (author of Kinsmen and once listed in Who’s Who in America); John W. Dafoe (former editor of the Winnipeg Free Press); and D.C. Coleman (former president of Canadian Pacific Railway). 124) The ADHS Redmen senior football team were the top AA squad in Ontario in 2010 – a feat never accomplished by an Arnprior team before. And how did the Redmen follow that? By repeating as champions in 2011 with their second consecutive National Capital Bowl AA championship. 125) In 1955, Mayor Bob Simpson of Arnprior was in New York on business, in his capacity as president of Canadian Public Booth. Simpson learned that Pfizer was looking for a site to locate a pharmaceutical plant in Canada, so he sought a meeting with Pfizer, in which he impressed on them the desirability of Arnprior as a location.

123 - John W. Dafoe, former editor of the Winnipeg Free Press, is an ADHS grad. Simpson organized a delegation of prominent Arnprior citizens, who travelled to Pfizer’s offices in New York to emphasize how welcome they would be in Arnprior . This enthusiasm (including a curling demonstration on the ice at Rockefeller Center) convinced Pfizer that Arnprior was where they should build their new facilities. The Pfizer plant opened in 1956 and operated continuously until sold by Pfizer in 2008.

128 - In the early days of Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fire brigade (late 1800s), the town was divided into wards. This old-time photograph shows the uniforms and horse-drawn transportation of the fire department in days gone by.

First church founded in 1857

126) As of 2012, Arnprior is home to 13 different churches serving a variety of faiths. The earliest church in town was founded in 1857 and the most recent was established in 1999. 127) The year was 1888 and Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst volunteer ďŹ re department â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Victoria Fire Company â&#x20AC;&#x201C; handed an ultimatum to the Arnprior Village Council. It was stated that if they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t paid $12 per year each, all 24 men would resign on August 1. Council called their bluff, took immediate action and organized a new company with more than 40 volunteers quickly recruited. The brigade was renamed the Victoria Hook & Ladder

Company. By the 1890s, the brigade numbered 27 men and the ďŹ rst Fire Chief on record was Bob Neill who operated a blacksmith business in town. 128) In the early days of Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ re brigade (late 1800s), the town was divided into wards: Number 1 was at Town Hall; Number 2 was at the Market Place near the corner of Victoria and what is now Bell Street; Number 3 was originally located on William Street, just off John Street and then moved to William between John and Daniel streets; Number 4 was on McLachlin Street near the Lutheran Church; and Number 5 was at the McLachlin Bros. lumber yards.

126 - Thirteen different churches serving a variety of faiths are included in Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s religious community today. At left is the former Methodist church, now home to the United Church.

Pennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fudge Factory has been owned and operated by the Gravel Family since 1989. The building itself has been part of the history of Fitzroy Harbour since Joe Ovington opened it in 1933 as a service station to repair vehicles used by the tradesmen who came to build the Chats Falls Dam. Joe passed away shortly thereafter and the service station came under the ownership of John and Christine (Ovington widow) Muldoon who converted it to a general store and it remained so for 45 years. From 1978 to early 1989 the store fell into hard times with several owners coming and going, unable to make a go of it. In March of 1989 Judy and her husband Syd purchased the store and put the building now known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fudge Factoryâ&#x20AC;? back on the map.

PJ’s Restaurant named for owners’ three children

129) The Canadian Legion was first organized in Arnprior in 1930. 130) The Arnprior Cenotaph was constructed in 1952 and remains a gathering place to remember those who lost their lives while fighting for their country. The monument is located in front of Arnprior & District Memorial Hospital. 131) The Kenwood Corporate Centre, which once housed one of Arnprior’s most thriving industries, is now a growing business of its own. The 225,000 sq. ft. building was saved from the wrecking ball in the mid-90s and completely renovated over the next two decades. It is now home to more than 30 tenants and is a multi-purpose facility with an athletic centre, bakery, florist, mechanic, radio station, dentist and accountant. 132) M. Sullivan & Son Ltd. will

celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2014. The construction company has not only been a part of literally building the town of Arnprior, but it has done so in a way that it has been recognized on more than one occasion as one of the country’s best managed companies. 133) Arnprior’s Doug Lindsay was not only a fighter ‘ace’ with the Royal Canadian Air Force, but has also had a distinguished service career after the Second World War ended in 1945. At the end of WWII, he had seven aircraft confirmed destroyed, and as the story goes, three of those came within a time span of one minute on July 2, 1944. One minute! He also flew with the United States Air Force during the Korean War. 134) In 1954, Stanley Reid and his brother Carlton bought the local General

Motors dealership from the Wood family and Reid Bros. was born. The business set up across from the town hall, with a body shop where Randy Whyte’s dentist office is now located. Later, the business expanded adding a used car lot on what eventually became the Kingburger on Madawaska Boulevard and is now occupied by Mama Rosa’s restaurant. The dealership moved to its current location in 1968 and is still family owned and operated in 2012. 135) PJ’s Restaurant is owned by the Anas family, but do you know where the name came from? It’s named after the three Anas children – Peter, Joanne and Jim. It was originally the Vania Restaurant which opened in 1968 (formerly known as Tower Lunch) and was renamed in 1977 by Tasso and Litsa Anas.

Many achievements in entertainment, construction and aeronautics

139 - The new three-span bridge on Highway 417 over the Madawaska River is 310 metres long , placing it among the top 20 longest in the world for bridges of this type.

142 - One of the earliest helicopter pilots to fly on Canadian supply ships, servicing remote outposts on the North Atlantic, was Arnprior native Donald MacLean.

136) Justin Bieber is one of the biggest stars in the world in 2012, and among his accomplishments is a hit movie. There is an Arnprior connection to his big screen debut. Bieber played a concert at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, and in attendance were two Arnprior girls – Hannah Bigelow and Kayla Collins. They were sitting in almost the very back row of the 300 level but were chosen to relocate to the fourth row. A camera crew followed them and they thought no more of it until they saw “Never Say Never” at the theatre. And saw themselves on the big screen. They were being filmed to be in the movie! 137) In 1945, Arnprior’s Frank Ryan applied for and was subsequently granted a licence to open radio station CFRA in Ottawa. Now, firmly re-established in his beloved Ottawa Valley after living as far away as Winnipeg, Frank proceeded to take his fledgling 5,000-watt station to a 50,000-watt powerhouse. He was unwavering in support of country music, step-dancing and other cultural pursuits, and was elected to the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame as a Builder for his efforts on behalf of the traditional music of the Valley. 138) The expansion of Highway 417 to Arnprior from Kanata is nearing completion with re-routing of the road and increasing it to a fourlane highway. When the job is done, it is expected that more than a million tons of sand and gravel will have been moved

Work on the water-sewer project was done by hand, pick and shovel. 141) Smiths Construction, one of Arnprior’s most successful family owned businesses, opened its doors in 1933 when brothers Bill and Frank, in the midst of the Great Depression, bought a truck and began working out of the homestead on Elgin Street. They began a paving operation in 1941 and in 1946 won their first bid for a Dept. of Highways contract. They moved to their new digs on Madawaska Blvd. in 1949 and

never looked back. 142) Arnprior native Donald MacLean was one of the earliest helicopter pilots to fly on Canadian supply ships, servicing remote outposts on the North Atlantic. MacLean would fly out of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, up the Labrador coast to Ungava Bay, and down into Hudson’s Bay, then into Arctic territory, where very few had been before. In 1962, he was asked by the Department of Transport to establish and command the helicopter base at Prince Rupert. The pilots flew in all kinds of weather, far beyond the safe limit, into the Queen Charlotte Islands. As a pioneer in the helicopter field, he blazed a trail that others could follow with much greater comfort and safety than he experienced. 143) Diamond Park Mineral Water was world famous in its day, and it was from Arnprior! Among the components in the water were salt and sulphur and the water was said to have curative powers dealing with rheumatic problems, hangover headaches and an aid in flushing the kidneys. Diamond Park Springs was located on the edge of Pakenham Township in the late 1800s but was flooded by Ontario Hydro when the dam was put in place at the head pond. At one point there was a 12-room hotel on site and proved to be a popular spa in its day. The plant was later sold to Sanitaris Ltd. who continued bottling water from their plant at the corner of John and William streets behind the current LCBO.

144) Arnprior’s current town hall had a third floor at one point and it was once the scene of many theatre performances. It was once equipped with an orchestra platform, a modern stage and spacious balcony, that, together with the main hall, could seat 600 people. 145) Arnprior’s first Village hall was located on Victoria Street where River of Life is currently located. It was destroyed by fire in 1888 and plans came together to build on the current site at Elgin and Madawaska streets. The new hall was completed in the summer of 1889 for $11,760. 146) The Arnprior & District Fish & Game Club was formed in 1947 and is still active today from its clubhouse in Bell Park at the mouth of the Madawaska River. In the 1980s, membership hit 600 members with another 200 in the junior branch. 147) Did you know an ADHS graduate had a cameo on one of the biggest sitcoms of all time? Sharon MacIntosh (nee McLaren) won a radio contest and had the choice of making a cameo on some of the hottest TV shows of the 1990s. Her choice was Seinfeld. She appears briefly in an episode titled “The Checks” where she’s having a cup of coffee in the famous coffee shop while Jerry and Kramer chat. She was in three scenes, but only one made the final cut. For Seinfeld fans, it’s the episode with the Japanese visitors and the “Super Terrific Happy Hour.” She had the choice of various shows including ER, X-Files and Beverly Hills 90210, but went for the laughs! 148) Arnprior District High School graduate Johanna Dejager has won numerous awards and titles as an IFBB bodybuilder, including national titles and international acclaim. As a professional, Johanna was a strong proponent of natural bodybuilding and managed to sculpt her body while remaining drug free. She stands 5’4” and competed at 125 pounds, though she appears much larger. She has recently retired from competitive bodybuilding but remains dedicated to a healthy and fit lifestyle. 149) Peter Jennings was one of the most recognizable and talented anchormen on American network television and the ABC icon had an Arnprior connection. John Beattie was a long-time producer who worked closely with Jennings over the years until the anchor’s retirement in 2005. 150) Arnprior District High School graduate Julia Bradley worked hard to become one of Canada’s top female cyclists, earning a spot on the women’s national team and has won medals – including gold – at an international level. She has been a Canadian and world champion in her disciplines.
