EMC news – A funeral will be held in Arnprior tomorrow, Friday, Aug. 3, for a popular teenager killed in a single-vehicle crash in West Carleton Sunday morning. Fitzroy Harbour’s Lisa Roesler, 17, was found dead in her vehicle by a woman walking her dog at about 9:30 a.m. near the corner of Dunrobin and Crown Point roads. The vehicle appeared to have failed to make a turn on the gravel road, ending up in heavily-treed ditch. A truck utility box filled with some of Roesler’s favourite type of hats and heartfelt messages quickly sprung up as a memorial at the site. Her grieving family, including father Rob, mother Colleen, brother Eric, 22, and sister Shannon, 19, were unavailable for comment this week. However, media reports say the Arnprior District High School student drove two boys home to Morgan’s Grant in Kanata at about 5 a.m. following her father’s 50th birthday party in Fitzroy Harbour. She could have driven home via Carp Road, but appears to have taken Dunrobin Road, perhaps missing the turn at Galetta Side Road but not noticing until she hit the gravel portion that leads down to a steep end at the
EMC news – Arnprior OPP dealt with two incidents last week in which cars burned in town. One brought out the worst in someone, while the other the best in neighbours who prevented the fire from being much worse. Arnprior OPP report that in the early morning of Saturday, July 28, an unknown person threw a flaming object into a vehicle on Russell Street causing the vehicle to burn. Police
EMC news - Half the money raised through ticket sales and other sources at the Arnprior Fair next week will go to drought-weary Renfrew County farmers. Arnprior Agricultural Society board president Jeff Desarmia came up with the idea and received unanimous approval from the board Tuesday after learning this summer’s drought is devastating crop and livestock farmers. “Renfrew county farmers have been hit hardest, and we’re in a position to give back this year,” said Desarmia, who noted the sale of the curling club building and other moves the organization has made in recent years has

put it on solid footing. He hopes other Ottawa Valley agricultural societies will follow suit. Part of the mandate of agricultural societies is to help struggling farmers. Hit particularly hard by the drought are cattle farmers, who are selling off their animals because it costs more to feed them than they are worth. Hay is going for twice the normal price, at $5.50 a bale. (For more on the drought, see Pages 6-7). Desarmia won’t speculate how much will be raised for fear rain could affect the total. But he indicated it could top $10,000. Details on who would be responsible for deciding which farmers get the money have yet to be worked out. The fair runs Aug. 9 to 12.

Ottawa River. Police didn’t have an update as of Wednesday, but said they had no reason to suspect alcohol played a factor in the crash. Lisa is being fondly remembered as a bright student and talented athlete, a pretty girl who was open and confident around others. In June she was interviewed in the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide about the successful rugby season, and how she was looking forward to next season.

The white flatbed Ford truck was “totally engulfed,” according to Arnprior OPP Sgt. Gary Dougherty. “It would have been a total loss.”

Lisa Roeslerâ€™s friends created a memorial at the crash site, complete with many hats (she was fond of donning hats) and heartfelt messages. Family and friends are invited to pay their respects at the Pilon Family Funeral Home and Chapel, 50 John St. N., in Arnprior today (Thursday) from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. A service to remember and celebrate Lisaâ€™s life will be conducted at Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church, 116 Baskin Dr. W., Arnprior, this Friday
morning at 11 a.m. Rev. Mark Arnill of St. Andrewâ€™s United Church in Fitzroy Harbour will ofďŹ ciate. In lieu of ďŹ‚owers, a donation to The Lisa Roesler Award for Athletics as ADHS or to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) would be appreciated by her family.
She was one of the best players of the championship ADHS rugby team and was being relied on heavily to be one of the squadâ€™s leaders with the graduation of several veterans. Her skilled play had already attracted the attention of several university and college coaches. She also played soccer and hockey. ADHS principal Neil Farmer said, from his perspective, he was thinking about her friends and all the students at his school. He said students tend to be much maligned, but at moments like this they band together admirably. â€œItâ€™s sad for them, but they are really good at rallying together,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s a loss to ADHS, but a bigger loss to the family. She had a mix of everything.â€? Farmer, whose daughter is only a few years younger, said Lisa was a â€œwellrounded personâ€? who left her stamp on the school. Lisa was an honour student going into Grade 12 at ADHS in September. She had hoped to study English literature at Concordia University. This summer she was working as a hostess at East Side Marioâ€™s where she will be sorely missed.

eowner. Many brave neighbours immediately rushed to the help put out the ďŹ re with their own personal ďŹ re extinguishers, say the OPP. â€œThanks to them, the ďŹ re remained under control until ďŹ re crews arrived.â€? The OPP say it is a good lesson, reminding people to always have a fully charged ďŹ re extinguisher in their homes. â€œIt could save a life.â€? Arnprior Fire Chief John Okum said the incident was â€œcompletely accidental.â€? It can be dangerous to be near a burning car, he noted. He said while vehicles are quick to blow up in the movies, the chances of it happening in reality do exist. â€œThe fuel line is fairly far from the gas tank, but itâ€™s best to stay away. People should not remain close,â€? Okum said.

Arnprior OPP ofďŹ cers have noticed that some garage doors in town have been left open during the night. Please ensure that valuables are locked and secured before you go to bed, they urge. FAIL TO REMAIN
On July 27 at about 6 p.m., a fail-toremain collision occurred on John Street in Arnprior, report OPP. A McNab-Braeside man has been charged with driving under suspension, impaired driving, failing to remain at the scene of a collision and breach of probation. He is scheduled to appear in Renfrew court Sept. 26.

It will be two weeks or more before results of the forensic examination are complete.

Arnprior OPP thank the neighbours of the resident for their â€œquick thinking and courageous response,â€? which quite possibly saved an entire home from bursting into ďŹ‚ames. Police report that at around 2:30 p.m. emergency crews responded to the Seventh Avenue home after a vehicle exploded and burst into ďŹ‚ames inside the garage.

Township extends complete fire ban EMC news â€“ People will be tempted to light campďŹ res this coming long weekend, but donâ€™t do it, urges the McNab-Braeside Fire Department. The unusually dry conditions has created too severe a ďŹ re hazard to risk any kind of ďŹ res, says the departmentâ€™s ďŹ re prevention and public education ofďŹ cer Karen Barsoski. The McNab-Braeside ďŹ re department and those in surrounding municipalities throughout Renfrew County have had to place ďŹ re bans in effect in response to overly dry conditions and above-average temperatures. McNab-Braesideâ€™s ďŹ re ban was upgraded last week to include ďŹ reworks and all pyrotechnics. With the long weekend coming up, campers and vacationers may be disappointed by the ban, but it has been put into place to protect human life and to preserve property, stressed Barsoski. An out-ofcontrol grass or brush ďŹ re can become devastating and difďŹ cult to contain under the current conditions, she added. In the ongoing effort to ensure such a ďŹ re doesnâ€™t erupt in the township the McNab-Braeside Fire Department issued an update Monday morning, reiterating that the temporary ďŹ re ban for the entire township will remain in effect until further notice. â€œDue to extremely dry conditions and above average temperatures, the ďŹ re ban will continue until signiďŹ cant rain fall is recorded,â€? says the statement. â€œThe ďŹ re ban has been implemented to avoid possible hazardous situations that may result from outdoor burning and human error. â€œThe ďŹ re ban includes all campďŹ res at established campgrounds and on private properties as well as ďŹ reworks and pyrotechnics in the township.â€?

Federal worker to take over as new Arnprior town treasurer Derek Dunn email@example.com
EMC news â€“ The new team at town hall is coming together. Jennifer Morawiec will take over as treasurer on Sept. 4, it was revealed at a special Arnprior council meeting Monday morning. The almost 10-year chief auditor at Public Works and Government Services Canada won out over 30 applicants, a few of whom were strong contenders, said Mayor David Reid. â€œI think we got a great candidate. Sheâ€™s a good ďŹ t for the town.â€? Morawiec lived three years in Arnprior, but calls Kanata home these days. Sheâ€™s worked at Bell Canada and the Pembroke Regional Hospital, and is a graduate of Queenâ€™s University. She holds designations as a CertiďŹ ed Management Accountant and a CertiďŹ ed Fraud Examiner. According to a town media release, Morawiec specializes â€œin external audit of government contractsâ€? and â€œhas
JENNIFER MORAWIEC substantial background in ďŹ nancial analysis, procurement processes and project management.â€? Reid said the role of treasure is among the top two or three positions at any municipality. Although she will
require some outside training, there is about a month of overlap with longtime current treasurer David Pollard, who will retire in the fall. The announcement follows closely after the hiring of Michael Wildman as chief administrative ofďŹ cer (CAO). Wildman participated in the hiring of Morawiec. The pro-development leaning Wildman starts Aug. 13. Next on the hiring list is a new deputy treasurer. The municipality went 10 months without a CAO. That put a few plans on hold, but the organization didnâ€™t fall into ruin, Reid insists. â€œWeâ€™re in good shape. All the required elements are up to date,â€? he said. â€œSome initiatives are behind, but I think itâ€™s important to get these pieces in place ďŹ rst.

Delay in County councilâ€™s approval of new deal angers Ontario Works employees EMC news â€“ The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) is accusing Renfrew County of breaking a promise by delaying approval of a deal that would put Ontario Works staff back on the job. The CUPE Local 4989 members ratiďŹ ed a tentative collective agreement July 24, but more than a week later they are still walking the picket line and will likely do so at least until Aug. 8 and maybe
even longer. â€œWe had a commitment from the employer last Tuesday (July 24) to negotiate a Return to Work Protocol that would see members restoring the services they deliver to residents,â€? said CUPE National Representative Amy Parker. â€œThat meeting was cancelled and rescheduled to this past Monday, July 30 and now they have cancelled that meeting too.â€? Parker maintained that the
union has done everything it can to make sure County of Renfrew residents are provided with the services they rely on as soon as possible, â€œbut now we are told that it cannot be done until next week â€“ thatâ€™s a real slap in the face not only for us, but for those clients who rely on us.â€? A call to the Countyâ€™s chief negotiator was answered with a voicemail stating he was away on vacation until Aug.
7. To make matters worse, says the union, an email to the Renfrew County CAO questioning the â€œunnecessary delayâ€? was met with a reply that said that Aug. 8 is the earliest County council would be able to call a special meeting and that even then, there would be
no guarantee they would have quorum (at least nine councilors) in order to ratify the tentative agreement. â€œWhile we understand it is difďŹ cult to schedule a special meeting of County council during the summer months, Renfrew County is certainly
not presenting themselves as â€˜Pretty as a Pictureâ€™ when it comes to dealing with Ontario Works, and the services that they provide the residents of Renfrew County,â€? said Parker. The County of Renfrew had not responded to a request for comment as of press deadline

Ontario asks feds for farm drought relief Emma Jackson, Steve Newman
“That is an effort to ensure that money gets into farmers’ pocket quicker.” Seconds later, the rain started pelting down, causing the minister to proclaim, “Isn’t that great. The Sound of Music … Keep coming, keep coming.” Rain or no rain, farmers in areas identiﬁed as “prescribed drought regions” will have access to upfront payments to offset their losses, and full disaster relief will be paid out once crops are harvested and total losses are calculated. Determining which areas are in a disaster situation will take about 45 days. But McMeekin said he has kick-started the process about six weeks earlier than usual to help livestock farmers make prudent decisions as soon as possible.
EMC news - How ironic! On Tuesday, Ontario Minister of Agriculture Ted McMeekin announced that the Liberal government has asked the federal government to consider a disaster relief program for droughtstricken farmers across the province. But the second of two announcements at farms in the region came with something farmers couldn’t beg, borrow or steal for a month — rain. McMeekin ﬁrst visited the Foster Farms where he said he has ofﬁcially asked Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to begin the process of determining which parts of Ontario can quality for ﬁnancial support through the AgriRecovery disaster relief program, as a result of the extremely hot and dry weather. Just after 3 p.m., he made the same announcement at the corn and beef farm of Tracy and Ron Raddatz in Admaston-Bromley where it rained for the best part of an hour. CHANGING CONDITIONS
“Conditions vary across the province,” McMeekin told a small gathering of farmers in North Gower earlier that day. “Some areas are reporting excellent crops, while some believe they are facing disaster.” The irony of the rain in Admaston-Bromley was not lost on the agriculture minister, who was joined on-site by representatives from a small handful of agricultural organizations, including Agricorp, the Grain Farmers of Ontario, and the Ontario Cattlemen’s Association. Also in attendance were county ofﬁcials. They included Renfrew County Warden Bob Sweet. Other than the minister, Sweet was the major speaker. “This is not just a rural issue, but an urban issue, in the County of Renfrew,” said Sweet, noting his own municipality of Petawawa
DISASTROUS CORN CROP Steve Newman
Agriculture Minister Ted McMeekin indicates, after consulting with farmer Ron Raddatz, how high the corn should be by this time of the year. normally has 1.5 days of water capacity in its well system, a capacity that has shrunk to six hours. “This is really about what we can do, and what has to be done, to assist the farming community. This is a very difﬁcult time,” added Sweet. McMeekin then announced the request for an AgriRecovery assessment, as agriculture industry representatives, journalists and county staff crowded together, just out of the rain, on the Raddatz house porch. “In addition, we’ve committed today (July 31) that anyone that needs to cull part of their herd, or their livestock complement, can do so with the assurance that it won’t impact their normal AgriStability claim,” said McMeekin.
Later in McMeekin’s visit to the Raddatz farm, he took a close look at, and taste of, the corn in the adjoining ﬁeld. With the corn several feet shorter than it would normally be this time of the year, he asked Ron Raddatz what the chances of recovery would be for his corn if “optimal conditions with rain every couple of days” was to materialize. “Oh, this is beyond rescue,” replied Raddatz, who has been farming close to 35 years. The Raddatzes have 600 acres of corn, of which he says “about 25 per cent has a chance of making something. The rest, at this point, is a writeoff.” And their farm isn’t an isolated example, he added, noting that feed that is available for livestock is very expensive for his farm and others, and “certainly too expensive to feed to beef cows.” Some farmers are selling cattle so they don’t have to feed them, while others are scrambling to bring in feed from other parts of the province. “Livestock producers are dealing with dry pastures and reduced hay yields and some are
trying to ﬁgure out just how they’ll feed their animals this winter. It’s a tough situation,” McMeekin said. Identifying the regions that will qualify for ﬁnancial help will also allow struggling farmers in those areas to defer part of their sale proceeds to a future tax year. “That’s important if you’re trying to manage through a tough situation,” McMeekin said. He also conﬁrmed that farmers in drought regions will be protected from reductions in their agricultural stability coverage if they are forced to cull part of their breeding stock because of forage shortages. McMeekin did not announce any new money for a provincial disaster relief program, but stressed that the province’s “permanent and predictable” relief programs will do their job to protect Ontario farmers. The province offers a range of production insurance programs which farmers can choose to pay into like any other insurance program. When disaster strikes, those with insurance can make claims for ﬁnancial assistance, including interim payments that would be made throughout the season before ﬁnal losses are calculated. Another program, AgriStability, is an income insurance program that offsets the difference if a farmer’s income is well below his or her annual average. In the meantime, McMeekin said the government will continue to monitor the situation. “While it’s too early to know the full implications of the current dry conditions, we are evaluating the situation daily and will continue to do so.” The fact that Renfrew County is among the hardest-hit regions in the province may also help attract money through the AgriRecovery process. The minister noted about 75 per cent of the province is doing well agriculturally. See KEEP GOOD THINGS Page 7
Lately we’ve been inundated with stories in the media about hospital food and sodium levels. Both the CBC and the Globe & Mail have done some investigative reporting demonstrating how unhealthy food in Ontario hospitals can be. “A lot of people are actually in hospital because there’s too much salt in our foods,” said Norm Campbell, who is the Canadian chair in hypertension prevention and control, “To me, this is very similar to hospitals selling tobacco products.” Several healthy food initiatives have recently been implemented at Arnprior Regional Health in order to get the best quality and most nutritious food into our health care organization. A “Healthy Food in Hospitals Strategy” for Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) under the Champlain Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Network has been short listed as one of ﬁve priority areas for further exploration. An expert Task Group, chaired by Randy Penny, President and CEO of Renfrew Victoria Hospital and Barry’s Bay Hospital, has been formed to focus on healthy foods in hospitals, speciﬁcally cafeterias. This task force will demonstrate leadership in this area as there is wide variances across the region when it comes to hospital food. Arnprior Regional Health is an involved participant in this process and has been reviewing the food offered to patients and residents, as well as what is served in the cafeteria.
Healthy eating is becoming more and more prominent in the media especially as a poor diet may increase the risk of obesity and chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, certain types of cancer and osteoporosis. Many Renfrew County residents often will have more than two risk factors for Cardiac disease and it is important that those of us in health care model healthy eating in order to reduce the risk of developing health issues related to heart disease in the future. We will continue to look at opportunities to provide health conscious choices to our patients as well as our cafeteria clients.
Dietary aid, Lois Cavanagh, demonstrates healthy food options.

PC MPPs meet farmers before approaching gov’t for relief Steve Newman email@example.com
EMC news - Local MPP John Yakabuski and fellow Conservative MPPs Ernie Hardeman and Jack MacLaren met Monday afternoon with more than 60 Ottawa Valley farmers to discuss the extent of the drought-ravished region. Mostly, they spoke about how the Liberal government will be asked, in short order, for financial assistance for farmers, whether or not they are insured. The assistance is needed to provide some life support for the agriculture industry, said Yakabuski, MacLaren and Hardeman. MacLaren is the MPP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills, while Hardeman is the Oxford MPP, the Progressive Conservative critic for agriculture, food and rural affairs, and former agriculture minister in 1999. The plan was to ask the Province to request the federal government provide funding through the AgriRecovery program. By the next day, it was announced that the provincial government had done just that.
During Monday’s meeting at the Renfrew Armouries, Yakabuski appeared surprised when he was informed by a local journalist that the provincial Liberal agriculture minister Ted McMeekin would be visiting a local farm the next day. Anticipation was in the air that maybe the Liberals were planning to make an announcement about financial assistance. In a news release handed out at Monday’s meeting, Hardeman said he’d written the same minister to ask that a proactive assistance plan be put in place. “The drought that has plagued Renfrew County (this year) is the worst most people can remember,” Yakabuski said in the meeting’s news release. Those thoughts were echoed by several during the meeting. Close to 20 representatives attended, including reps from the pork producers, soil and crop, cattlemen, dairy, the Christian farmers, the Ontario Federation of Agriculture and the National Farmers Union. “It’s getting very desperate,” said Gerald Rollins of

The focus now needs to be on documentation of drought damage, said soil and crop representative Kevin Dick of Barclay Dick & Son Farm Supply in Douglas. He and daughter and company operator Jennifer Doelman stressed the need for farmers to do their paperwork when looking for government support. They, and other farmers, also spoke about getting photos of drought-caused damage in the hands of Yakabuski

Asked what AgriRecovery assistance might mean for local farmers, the minister said there’s no stock answer. “AgriRecovery claims have taken different forms over the (last three) years, from covering the costs of transporting hay to covering cull costs for livestock. So, every region is different.” But first the minister said a scientific assessment is needed before the extent of any AgriRecovery assistance can be determined. “We need to do that (assessment) together, and we need to do it quickly.” The extent of assistance may also be affect-
ed, said one agriculture ministry staff member, because the recent federal budget cuts were highest, at 12 per cent, for agriculture. AgriRecovery assistance is a shared process that is funded 60 per cent federally and 40 per cent provincially. Meanwhile, Warden Sweet is cautiously optimistic the AgriRecovery assessment will turn out for the better, as far as Renfrew County farmers are concerned. Piggy-backing on the Foodland motto, the warden told McMeekin: “As the saying goes, good things grow in Ontario and we want to see that continue, as I’m sure you do.
within the week to reinforce the need for financial assistance. Fitzroy Harbour Township farmer Willie O’Rourke said the financial assistance is much needed. The owner of 200 beef cattle says he’s
just recovering from the BSE (mad cow) crisis, only to be hit by this summer’s drought. It’s also bad for the maple syrup industry, said Adrian Straathof of Westmeath. “Our maple bush is starting to die,” he said. “And if it keeps up there will be no maple syrup next year.” However, there was some levity at the meeting. Speaking about the ongoing need to conserve water, Hardeman said with a smile, “We may have to start showering in pairs.” On a serious note, Herdeman said he hoped there is a program accessed to sustain the agricultural industry regardless of whether or not farmers are insured. “You have to remember that if you put a program in place to help farmers feed (their livestock), no one is collecting
insurance, because the collection happens after you ship the beef cow,” said Hardeman. “And the money you get for corn is when you sell the corn. If you’re helping the industry stay afloat, you can put support there to help them all evenly feed their animals.” Not knowing at the time that the Ontario government was moving to ask the federal government AgriRecovery program assistance, Yakabuski said, “We have to be cognizant of the fact that there’s an awful lot of people here that are in a great deal of hardship, with or without insurance, and whatever program comes forward, the government has to be cognizant … that everyone is suffering. “The plan has to be one that keeps people in business, and doesn’t put them out of business.”

Beer, wine donâ€™t belong on every corner
re they drunk? The Ontario Convenience Stores Association is pressing the province to allow corner stores to sell beer and wine. At first blush the idea seems attractive, offering the convenience of more locations to pick up our libations. Some convenience stores in rural locations are already licensed to sell beer and wine. And, of course, corner store owners love the idea. The ability to sell alcoholic
beverages can only serve to drive more traffic to these small businesses; customers who will potentially buy other items. But while this argument may offer a lot of dollars (for corner store owners), it is lacking in sense. Thereâ€™s a reason why the sale of wine and beer is restricted to limited locations. Easier access to beer and wine translates into easier access for those who are underage. Loosening the restriction on where beer and wine may
be sold will provide more opportunities for youth to obtain alcoholic drinks. If Ontario follows the example of Quebec and puts beer and wine in convenience stores, teens will have a wide variety of outlets to choose from, where they can hang around outside and pester adults for a litre of wine or a six-pack of beer. The consumption of alcohol causes more problems than other drugs used recreationally, so why would we want to make it easier for our
children to obtain it? According to a 2010 report by Britainâ€™s Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs, alcohol is a more dangerous drug than both crack cocaine and heroin when the combined harms to the user and to others are assessed. According to MADD, following the privatization of alcohol sales in Alberta, Calgary police reported a rise in impaired driving charges and family violence in areas of the city with the highest concentration of liquor stores.
Donâ€™t be swayed by the argument that ease of access will translate into lower prices. Thereâ€™s no guarantee that prices will lower or even that the selection available will be as good as at the Beer Store or LCBO. Without that guarantee this is an idea not even worth discussing. Keep in mind that the average corner store wonâ€™t have the shelf space to provide a wide selection. Customers may be stuck with a few major brands of beer, two white wines and two reds. Even though purchases would be more convenient for some people, a reduced selec-
tion and no price advantage is no improvement on today. The price of alcoholic beverages sold at corner stores may even go up compared to those sold at LCBO stores. Who sells a bottle of Pepsi for less â€“ a large grocery store or a small corner store? If they catch the premier during a tipsy moment and this idea flies, what happens if it turns out to have been a big mistake? It may prove difficult to take away licences to sell booze if they are handed out. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty has already rejected the idea. We should all raise a glass and offer him a toast.
Councilâ€™s duty to protect Grove To the editor: This refers to the July 26 article â€œGrove area development survives OMB appeal.â€? When I agreed to be the lead appellant on this Ontario Municipal Board appeal, my objective was to maximize protection of the significant woodland, national historic site Gillies Grove. During research on this appeal, this objective was bolstered by uncovering of a 2005 study titled â€˜A Background Study for Nomination of the Ottawa River Under the Canadian Heritage Rivers Systemâ€™. To quote page 184 of this study: â€œâ€Śthere are a remarkable number of conservation initiatives bearing testament to the riverâ€™s unique and varied natural systems and to the commitment of local citizens to the health of their natural environment.â€? (website HTML/ news/whatsnew-e-html). The study went on to list significant conservation areas, placing Gillies Grove in third place after the National Capital Greenbelt and Petawawa Terrace. This referenced article states: â€œHe has argued in the past that the developerâ€™s property
is â€˜an extension of wildlife habitatâ€™ and, therefore, threatens rare species in the Grove.â€? Inputs from diverse experts including Ministry of Natural Resources in April 1994, July 2002 and March 2005; the County of Renfrew, Environmental Impact Studies; and expert witnesses Michael Runtz and Dr. Ted Mosquin all â€œargueâ€? the vital role of the wetland habitat as the source of food and water for Gillies Grove wildlife flora and fauna. The official plan of the Town of Arnprior recognizes this by designating both the Vydon property and Gillies Grove as natural heritage areas and listing them in appendix 1 â€œList of Natural Heritage Areasâ€? as follows: â€œ8 â€“ Natural areas: wet creek habitat provides valuable extension and diversity to Grove habitat.â€? 11 â€“ Gillies Grove: the Grove is recognized for its ecological value.â€? As a result of withdrawal of appellants, these expertsâ€™ inputs will not be heard by the OMB and the ball is passed back to the town council. Russ Corbett Arnprior
Donâ€™t cut back waterway services To the editor: Re. locking services on Rideau Canal and Trent Severn Waterway. I have lived in the Ottawa area for most of my adult life. I have been an avid boater and owned a sail boat for 30 plus years. I have taken my boat coast to coast in Canada and in the United States. After my retirement 10 years ago, I began cruising on the Rideau and Trent
Severn Waterways. My first trip down the Rideau was an amazing journey. I had been from Ottawa to Kingston many times by road. I thought I would not see or learn anything. What an eye opener. So much history of our own country. What an engineering feat the Canals are. If Parks Canada cuts back on its locking services on the Rideau and Trent Severn
Waterway, it will suppress the tourism economy of the waterway communities and many businesses that rely on the present season of operation. Many of the lock personnel are students and also commercial cruises hire students as crew. Some of our history would also be lost. Please do not allow this to happen. Helen Bird Arnprior

Drought may affect future for plants, animals Nature will rebound unless dry conditions return year after year EMC lifestyle – Even though the ﬁnal days of July have only just slipped by, it feels as if we are in a later time of year. Because of the relentless heat and lack of rain, the lush green carpets of summer have turned November brown. The scorching eye of the 2012 drought seems not yet ready to look away, and continues to affect ﬂora and fauna. Some of the effects are obvious. Many plants stand withered and lifeless, their corpses doing more than just taking away from the beauty of the landscape. Green leaves are food for myriad caterpillars of moths and butterﬂies, and grubs of beetles and ﬂies. And those animals are food for larger animals, especially birds. Many songbirds glean the underside of leaves for caterpillars to feed their babies. This year I suspect meals are remarkably meagre. Recently I watched a pair of House Wrens bringing food to their nestlings hidden inside my sister Karen’s
Waxwings, which have timed the hatching of their young with the ripening of berries. Chipmunks harvest seeds and berries for consumption during the winter, so these rodents might also be in for a tough time. BEARS
Michael Runtz Nature’s Way birdhouse. Even with both parents foraging, food was delivered only every ﬁve to 10 minutes. And instead of arriving with a beakful of soft caterpillars, the wrens often returned with only one hard grasshopper, which meant the birds were foraging on the ground, not in bushes and trees. A lack of grubs and caterpillars means a lack of ﬂying adult insects. Thus, aerial foragers such as swallows and Whip-poor-wills may be struggling not only to ﬁnd enough food for their babies but perhaps enough for their own survival. BERRIES TO SEEDS
The berry and seed crop has also been affected by the drought. This likely has severe ramiﬁcations for Cedar
And Black Bears depend heavily on late summer bounty for building up fat reserves that not only help keep them warm during the cold months but also nourish them in early spring when they awaken from winter slumber. They too could be in for a difﬁcult future. Many of our smaller waterways and ponds have vanished. The frogs and small ﬁsh along with the aquatic insects that live in this type of habitat have in many cases perished. Larger waterways have become so warm and choked with algae that their oxygen levels have dropped precariously low. Of course, not all animals suffer when droughts occur. Exposed mudﬂats along rivers and lakes provide foraging habitat for migrating sandpipers. When ponds shrink, ﬁsh and frogs become concentrated, and Great Blue Herons and their kin readily exploit the bounty. What will the long-term
effects of the drought be? No one has a crystal ball, but I suspect that unless we experience another drought next year, Nature will respond admirably. Nature is resilient, and in the past has rebounded from major climatic events such as long-term droughts and glaciation. I suspect (and hope) that the drought of 2012 will end up being only a small blip on the ecological record. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.
The drought has resulted in slim pickings for many birds this summer. Michael Runtz

Cheer on our good sports at the Olympics; five medals and counting as of Wednesday
Steve Newman Steve.email@example.com
EMC sports - The history of world-class wrestlers who have made Olympic teams and rubbed shoulders with members of the Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club continues. As well, a member of the Canadian Olympic judo team, Nick Tritton of Perth, wrestled for the Renfrew club when he was in high school. Kevin Mayhew, now head coach of the Arnprior Wrestling Club, coached Tritton in 1999 and 2000. Mayhew and Mark Lavallee of the Renfrew Club coached him when he won a national championship in B.C. in 2000. While he wrestled out of Perth, the Renfrew coaches handled him in major tournaments. “He was an excellent wrestler and a nice guy,” remembers Mayhew. He said Tritton was already accomplished in judo when took up wrestling as a cross-training exercise because the two are so similar. Tritton, now 28, was eliminated from medal contention Monday, when he was beaten by Uzbekistan’s Navruz Jurakobilov in a close bout in the under-73-kg class. He is ranked 32nd internationally and after competing in judo for 18 years will likely seriously consider retirement. Canadian wrestling team members Tonya Verbeek of Grimsby, Dave Tremblay of Wind-
sor and Martine Dugrenier of Montreal are also well known to Renfrew and Arnprior wrestlers. Verbeek competed at the 2005 national championship in Renfrew; Dugrenier has given clinics at the wrestling club and local elementary schools; while Dugrenier and Tremblay are Montreal Wrestling Club members that area wrestlers see regularly. Dugrenier is a close friend with Grant Lavallee, one of the Renfrew club coaches. “She’s closely connected with some of our wrestlers. And our club goes down to Montreal regularly, at least on a monthly basis, and practises with Martine and Dave Tremblay, who’s originally from Windsor,” said Lavallee. Lavallee, who ﬁnished fourth in the 1974 Commonwealth Games, was selected to Canada’s 1976 Olympic team, but didn’t compete because of injury. One of the team’s coaches this year, Victor Zilberman of the Montreal Wrestling Club, is very familiar with members of the Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club. Since 1992, Canadian wrestlers have contributed to the country’s medal tally at every Olympics, with a total of six medals. Other wrestlers who have visited with Renfrew Amateur Wrestling Club members include 2000 Olympic champion Daniel Igali. With files from John Carter, Peter Clark

Heymans makes history Synchronized divers Emilie Heymans, right, and Jennifer Abel celebrate winning Canadaâ€™s first medal of the 2012 Olympic Games after finishing third in the 3-metre synchronized springboard final at the Aquatic Centre in London on July 29. The medal was the fourth in four consecutive Games for Heymans, who also finished on the podium in Sydney (silver), Athens (bronze) and Beijing (silver). She became the first Canadian athlete to accomplish this feat.
National pride runs high at Canada House Brian McNair email@example.com
EMC sports - Itâ€™s not like beer is the most important thing in the world to me â€“ I really do love my wife and kids more â€“ but it was still nice to see Canadian being served at Canada House in London Thursday, July 26. It was a wildly Canadian atmosphere, after all, chock-full of optimism on the outskirts of Trafalgar Square and with the official opening of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games looming just over a day away.
And while it was nice to see such dignitaries as Marcel Aubut and Dick Pound in attendance, it probably meant even more to the few 2012 Olympians on hand to see the likes of Alexandre Bilodeau and Catriona Le May Doan. Itâ€™s people like them, after all, who are inspiring to the current crop of Olympians â€“ or at least they should be considering both are Winter Olympic champions. And it sure was interesting to hear Bilodeau refer to Whitbyâ€™s Kelita Zupancic during
his brief speech. It was her smile leading up to her flight that caught his eye, a smile that for him lit up a country during the 2010 Games in Vancouver when he captured gold in the menâ€™s moguls. A training partner of Zupanicâ€™s in Montreal, where she now lives and trains with the national judo team, Bilodeau loves to see the athletes keeping it fun in the midst of all the blood, sweat and tears. â€œWhen you enjoy it and have a smile, thatâ€™s the best place to
perform, the best place to be in your mind,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s hard to do. I think itâ€™s important to like what we do still. Even though itâ€™s the Games, just enjoy it.â€? Zupancic has been singularly focused on the task for countless years, dating back to when she was nine and saw her now-coach Nicolas Gill win a silver medal at the 2000 Games in Sydney, Australia. But, as obvious as that killer look is in her eyes, itâ€™s nice also to see the glint. Cheers to that, mate.

EMC sports - There are few things more Canadian than hockey and moose, and both can be easily spotted outside Team Canadaâ€™s residence within the Olympic Village. A big red moose statue stands proudly â€“ and permanently throughout the 2012 Olympics â€“ just outside the doorway of Canadaâ€™s 11-floor building that is decorated with flags and huge C-A-N-A-D-A letters running down the middle-floor balconies. Off to the side are a couple of hockey nets, which were being put to good use during a media tour of the village on Thursday, July 26. Among the players was Thomas Gossland, a Vancouver swimmer who doesnâ€™t normally play the game, but was having a blast nonetheless as he gears up for his 4x100metre freestyle relay race on Sunday. â€œI donâ€™t know who brought them, but I just saw the nets and a few hours later there were sticks out,â€? Gossland said during a brief break in the action. â€œItâ€™s awesome,â€? he said when asked his impression of the village so far, two days into his visit. â€œIt was really overwhelming to come here. Iâ€™ve never been to a Games environment before, but everything in Canada House from what I can see is set up great, and the dining hall is huge. Itâ€™s pretty overwhelming. Iâ€™ve already been to the aquatic centre and itâ€™s gi-normous. Itâ€™s pretty exciting too.â€? The village as a whole is a remarkable feat of planning and engineering, the culmination of a process that began shortly after London learned of its successful bid some seven years ago. The idea is to provide all the
Fast facts about the Olympic Village â€˘ 2,818 townhouses and apartments â€˘ Peak time, there will be about 16,000 residents â€˘ The design echoes Londonâ€™s tradition of building homes around communal squares and courtyards â€˘ 22,000 pillows, 28,000 duvets â€˘ Each apartment has its own lounge â€˘ No more than two athletes per bedroom â€˘ Food to be consumed in the village includes 25,000 loaves of bread, 232 tonnes of potatoes, 75,000 litres of milk and more than 330 tonnes of fruit and vegetables comforts of home, including entertainment spots, a recreation centre, salon, bank, dry cleaner, post office, general store, Internet lounge and a huge dining area that offers the athletes tastes from all over the world. The task to feed the athletes and staff in the village, which during peak time will see some 60,000 meals served in 24 hours, has been led by catering manager Mari Holloway, whoâ€™s been on the job for two-and-a-half years leading up â€“ and much of the 24/7 in which the hall is now open. â€œFor the athletes, they see food as fuel, so for us itâ€™s important that we have the main components of an athleteâ€™s diet, and thatâ€™s carbohydrates and plain protein foods, so weâ€™ve worked a great deal with the athletesâ€™ committee and hence the concept here works extremely well,â€? she says.

JCS Stables hosting ‘rising stars’ this Saturday EMC sports – JCS Stables is gearing up for the second of three Rising Star Series horse show clinics this Saturday, Aug. 4. The goal of the series at the stables on Scheel Drive in McNabBraeside is to provide a safe, organized venue to promote equestrian skill and development. Judge, Dennis Mahoney from Deer Lake, Newfoundland, will provide feedback, commentary and explanations to riders, coaches and spectators throughout the day. Questions are always welcome. As usual, there will be prizes for the champion of each division. Ribbons are awarded for ﬁrst to fourth place. There is warm-up at 7:30 a.m. for beginner and novice riders only. Open card warm-ups are being held throughout the day for all other divisions. Deadline for entries is the Thursday before each clinic, but there is no penalty for late entries. For the ﬁrst clinic, June 23 proved to be a gorgeous day with lots of sun, a lovely breeze and a huge crowd, a welcome relief from last year when rain washed out two of the clinics. There were competitors and spectators from Renfrew, Arnprior, Chalk River, Pakenham, Fitzroy Harbour, Carp and other areas of West Carleton. Competitors, coaches and spectators gained knowledge through comments and evaluations from Hunter/Jumper Judge Kitty Bowland of Renfrew. There are several people responsible for bringing the horse show clinics together, but the participants are the most important, said JCS Stables Julie Skarica. She thanked the generosity of sponsors and the numerous volunteers who helped to provide for a safe, fun-ﬁlled and exciting day. All ribbons were provided by TTO Management of Flamborough. Results of the clinic are as follows: Beginner Division (sponsored by Scone Art) Walk/Trot Equitation 1st – Morgan Timmons riding Remarkable Legend, 2nd – Megan Kwissa riding Benhaven Starlight, Walk/Trot Pleasure 1st – Megan Kwissa riding Benhaven Starlight, 2nd – Brenna Cone riding Timbit, Equitation over Trotting Poles 1st – Megan Terry riding Star, 2nd – Melissa Billard-Layman riding Bucko, Beginner Division Champion was Kwissa riding Benhaven Starlight.

United Way campaign to kick off in Arnprior EMC events – The Renfrew County United Way and the LCBO Arnprior store are partnering to hold the 2012 campaign kick-Off this Friday, Aug. 3 with a community barbecue. The LCBO, as part of its province-wide campaign entitled ‘Give Back Where We Live’, will again be partnering with the United Way to raise funds to address high priority community needs. All LCBO outlets will be undertaking a number of activities to support their communities through the United Way, including a customer donation solicitation, employee payroll deduction and other ‘fun’ raising activities. On Aug. 3 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., the parking lot of the LCBO-Arnprior will be the scene of this year’s Renfrew County United Way campaign kick-off for Arnprior and area. A community barbecue, sponsored by Jack & Faith’s No Frills, Arnprior Giant Tiger, Metro and M&M Meats, and sup-
ported by the Town of Arnprior’s Recreation Department, will be the highlight of the campaign launch. The barbecue will be conducted with the support of volunteers from one of the United Way’s funded partners – The Grove Arnprior and District Nursing Home - as well as with United Way volunteers from Arnprior and area. Proceeds from the event will help provide emergency ‘safe beds’ for homeless youth in Renfrew County. THREE-MONTH BLITZ
The United Way campaign kick-off will be followed by a three-month blitz as individuals, businesses and organizations in the county are challenged to support the United Way’s efforts to address Renfrew County’s highest priority needs. The needs were identiﬁed during a public consultation initiative several years ago.
They include youth, child poverty, seniors, safe affordable housing, transportation and health services. The United Way is aligning all its activities and funding within six priority or community impact areas to create “signiﬁcant and lasting change.” A ‘call for proposal’ was issued in early July inviting registered health and social agencies that deliver services in Renfrew County to submit project ideas by the end of September. Renfrew County United Way needs Community Champions to realize its campaign goal of $500,000. Various countywide events will take place during the campaign blitz period that ends Dec. 6. “We believe that generous people coming together for a common purpose can achieve miracles,” said United Way executive director David Studham. “Improving lives and building healthier communities are our goals.”

Tickets for tea cost $5. Appraisals will also cost $5.
The three appraisers are: • Ross M.Wilson, an expert in medals, swords and wartime memorabilia; • Mike Cleary, who will scrutinize antique furniture; • Kim Murry, an expert on china, glass and decorative items.

On July 31, CBC shut down its over-the-air analogue television transmission network of 622 transmitters. “Despite receiving a generous subsidy from Canadian taxpayers, if available in their area, viewers will now be required to purchase the CBC television signal from private cable and satellite companies,” said Gallant. “It was disappointing to receive a letter from CBC President Hubert Lacroix tying the decision to reduce service to rural Canadians with recently announced Federal budget measures,” she said. “This was done with an announcement of an expensive CBC ‘public awareness campaign’ and a toll-free telephone number provided to Parliamentarians that does not work,” she claimed. “Were it not for Hockey Night in Canada and the fact many rural Canadians have no access to cable or broadband Internet and cannot afford expensive satellite services, this latest CBC announcement would be met with indifference,” said Gallant. “It would appear it was the plan all along to reduce service to rural Canada” said Gallant. “So much for the statement by the broadcaster when it said it will implement the need to manage corporation spending ‘in a way that doesn’t overly compromise’ its strategy for increasing local coverage,” said Gallant. UP FOR SALE
The MP reported that the land, tower and transmitters located at Foymount, McArthur Mills and Chalk River in the Ottawa Valley were put up for sale Aug. 1. The towers, which
also broadcast a radio signal, in Barry’s Bay, Whitney and Maynooth are not scheduled to be sold at this time. “The CBC has indicated a willingness to accept an offer from an affected community, community group, or other purchaser to acquire either the complete transmission site, including the land, building and tower or just the analog TV assets on towers the CBC is retaining. I encourage any interested parties to contact my office for further details,” said Gallant. CBC RESPONSE
In a release, CBC said only people who use an antenna to watch television and receive an analogue signal from CBC Television will need to change how they receive CBC TV services. That means fewer than two per cent of Canadians will be affected by the shutdown of its analogue system, it says Those people will have to get CBC television through either cable, satellite or highspeed Internet. In explaining the change, the CBC says the accelerated shutdown of its analogue transmission network was one of the measures announced by the Corporation to deal with the recent reduction of its parliamentary appropriation. The initiative will save $10 million a year, money that will help support the creation of Canadian programming and the development of new platforms, it says. “Continuing to operate 620 analogue transmitters to reach just 1.7 per cent of the population would not be an efficient use of our resources at the best of times, and it is simply not viable given the current circumstances.” CBC did apologizes for any inconvenience the change may cause.

EMC news – A federallysubsidized booth at a trade show proved beneficial to a local company. Cheryl Gallant toured Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp. recently, stopping at a booth the company used during a recent show in Toronto that could pay off with more customers. The federal government provides grants of up to $10,000 to businesses and other organizations that show promise on the job creation front. However, the RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MP explained that third party groups closer to the local business scene, such as the Renfrew County Community Futures
Development Corporation, are more qualified than politicians to dole out the money. Former Arnprior mayor Terry Gibeau is a Community Fu-
It’s for communities to decide which are best to create jobs MP CHERYL GALLANT
tures member. “It’s community leaders from the region that know the businesses. Government can’t pick and choose winners and losers,” Gallant said. “It’s for
County of Renfrew
communities to decide which are best to create jobs.” Arnprior Fire Trucks officials were pleased the company was the beneficiary of a grant. The company custom builds aluminum tanks and bodies. They promote their fire trucks as safe and reliable, and benefiting from technology developed by a sister engineering company. The trucks cost a little more than conventional ones, but according to company spokesman Graham Cross, municipalities are buying into the benefits. “It went excellent,” Cross said of the Fire Chiefs Convention in Toronto. “It went really well.”
