Friends of Lisa Roesler, the Arnprior District High School student who died in a single-vehicle crash Sunday morning, have begun a memorial at the Crown Point site. Many left hats and heartfelt messages to the Fitzroy Harbour resident. A wake today and funeral tomorrow will be held in Arnprior.

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.”

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad for them, but they are really good at rallying together,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a loss to ADHS, but a bigger loss to the family. She had a mix of everything.â&#x20AC;? Farmer, whose daughter is only a few years younger, said Lisa was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;wellrounded personâ&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where she will be sorely missed.

The OPP say it is a good lesson, reminding people to always have a fully charged ďŹ re extinguisher in their homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It could save a life.â&#x20AC;? Arnprior Fire Chief John Okum said the incident was â&#x20AC;&#x153;completely accidental.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;The fuel line is fairly far from the gas tank, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to stay away. People should not remain close,â&#x20AC;? Okum said.

Township extends complete fire ban EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; People will be tempted to light campďŹ res this coming long weekend, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to extremely dry conditions and above average temperatures, the ďŹ re ban will continue until signiďŹ cant rain fall is recorded,â&#x20AC;? says the statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ďŹ re ban has been implemented to avoid possible hazardous situations that may result from outdoor burning and human error. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 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&#x20AC;?

Federal worker to take over as new Arnprior town treasurer Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we got a great candidate. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good ďŹ t for the town.â&#x20AC;? Morawiec lived three years in Arnprior, but calls Kanata home these days. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked at Bell Canada and the Pembroke Regional Hospital, and is a graduate of Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;in external audit of government contractsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;has

JENNIFER MORAWIEC substantial background in ďŹ nancial analysis, procurement processes and project management.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall into ruin, Reid insists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in good shape. All the required elements are up to date,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some initiatives are behind, but I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to get these pieces in place ďŹ rst. These top administrative positions are critical.â&#x20AC;? He said like any business, getting the right people in place is of primary importance before diving headlong into â&#x20AC;&#x153;the fun stuffâ&#x20AC;? like growing the town and updating the downtown area.

Delay in County councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval of new deal angers Ontario Works employees EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;We 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&#x20AC;? said CUPE National Representative Amy Parker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That meeting was cancelled and rescheduled to this past Monday, July 30 and now they have cancelled that meeting too.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;but now we are told that it cannot be done until next week â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real slap in the face not only for us, but for those clients who rely on us.â&#x20AC;? A call to the Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;unnecessary delayâ&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;While 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&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pretty as a Pictureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; when it comes to dealing with Ontario Works, and the services that they provide the residents of Renfrew County,â&#x20AC;? 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.

steve.newman@metroland.com

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 steve.newman@metroland.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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong on every corner

A

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be swayed by the argument that ease of access will translate into lower prices. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duty to protect Grove To the editor: This refers to the July 26 article â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grove area development survives OMB appeal.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Background Study for Nomination of the Ottawa River Under the Canadian Heritage Rivers Systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. To quote page 184 of this study: â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Śthere are a remarkable number of conservation initiatives bearing testament to the riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique and varied natural systems and to the commitment of local citizens to the health of their natural environment.â&#x20AC;? (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&#x20AC;&#x153;He has argued in the past that the developerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property

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&#x20AC;&#x153;argueâ&#x20AC;? the vital role of the wetland habitat as the source of food and water for Gillies Grove wildlife flora and fauna.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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

NATURE

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

Tritton among many local wrestling links to Olympics

Cheer on our good sports at the Olympics; five medals and counting as of Wednesday

Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.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

She became the first Canadian athlete to accomplish this feat.

EMC sports - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like beer is the most important thing in the world to me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I really do love my wife and kids more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people like them, after all, who are inspiring to the current crop of Olympians â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or at least they should be considering both are Winter Olympic champions.

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moguls. A training partner of Zupanicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;When you enjoy it and have a smile, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best place to

Even though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Games, just enjoy it.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residence within the Olympic Village. A big red moose statue stands proudly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and permanently throughout the 2012 Olympics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just outside the doorway of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t normally play the game, but was having a blast nonetheless as he gears up for his 4x100metre freestyle relay race on Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who brought them, but I just saw the nets and a few hours later there were sticks out,â&#x20AC;? Gossland said during a brief break in the action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awesome,â&#x20AC;? he said when asked his impression of the village so far, two days into his visit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really overwhelming to come here. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty overwhelming. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already been to the aquatic centre and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gi-normous. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty exciting too.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;˘ 2,818 townhouses and apartments â&#x20AC;˘ Peak time, there will be about 16,000 residents â&#x20AC;˘ The design echoes Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tradition of building homes around communal squares and courtyards â&#x20AC;˘ 22,000 pillows, 28,000 duvets â&#x20AC;˘ Each apartment has its own lounge â&#x20AC;˘ No more than two athletes per bedroom â&#x20AC;˘ 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on the job for two-and-a-half years leading up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and much of the 24/7 in which the hall is now open. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the athletes, they see food as fuel, so for us itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that we have the main components of an athleteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbohydrates and plain protein foods, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked a great deal with the athletesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; committee and hence the concept here works extremely well,â&#x20AC;? 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.

R0011541027

COMMUNITY

Arnprior Location

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.”

CBC decision will reduce rural service: MP EMC news – Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant has expressed disappointment in the decision by the CBC that will reduce service in rural Canada. 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.

Grant pumps up town company Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

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-

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.”

KatieBears organization, founders in spotlight Sherry Haaima

sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle - A backdrop was set up and lights and cameras and crew were in place in the Fraser living room July 25 when KatieBears and its creators Lynda and Ian Fraser were thrust into the spotlight. KatieBears was selected by Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Qmedia Solutions to be featured in the fourth season of Get Involved! on TVO this fall. Since 2009 and in memory of their late daughter Katie who died suddenly as a young adult, the Frasers have been going to area parades and events to give teddy bears to anyone who looks like they could use a hug. Perched on a stool with her Mamma Bear KatieBears button and in the friendly and frank manner for which she is known, Lynda Fraser told host Caitie Drewery the story of the organization and how it has evolved and grown quickly over the past few years. In her experience, said Lynda, volunteering has been a two-way street. Those receiving the bears are always thrilled, but those arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the

KatieBears will be featured in the TVO series Get Involved! The crew was in the area recently to shoot footage for the program. At left are Ian and Lynda Fraser, parents of the late Katie Fraser, for whom the organization is named, and volunteer Alyssa Kilby. Sherry Haaima

only smiles the gifts evoke â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t describe the feeling you get,â&#x20AC;? said Fraser. Katie would be just delighted with the organization for which she is named and its

resounding success. Get Involved! is a series about volunteerism in Ontario. The production crew filmed at the Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home in McNab-Braeside in the morn-

ing and headed to Eganville in the afternoon to gather more footage of KatieBears being handed out at a nursing home, a day care and the Bonnechere

Valley Public Library. The Frasersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goal for 2012 is to have 1,000 KatieBears distributed in local communities and to adopt three schools

in Jamaica. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are currently working with PACE Canada and have raised enough money to already adopt the Dalmally Basic school in Jamaica for an entire year,â&#x20AC;? said Lynda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are also currently working with Winston Gayle, who is a famous Negril painter, who has kindly volunteered to come to Canada and donate his time in exchange for the experience of being here. He will be selling paintings and murals and 100 per cent of the profit will be split between Jamaica and our communities. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all up to the Jamaican government at this time, so we wait. We will keep trying until we are successful,â&#x20AC;? said Lynda. The TVO experience and all about the KatieBears project has been amazing, she said â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are so excited about this,â&#x20AC;? said Linda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want everyone to know how all our hard work has paid off so far this year.â&#x20AC;? More information is available on the website katiebears.gozoom.ca and on the KatieBears Facebook Page.

At left, Dana Jennings, left, and Bonnechere Valley Mayor Jennifer Murphy have some fun with KatieBears and the Get Involved! crew at the Bonnechere Valley Community Library. At right, a new KatieBear owner gets acquainted with his new friend.

White Lake, Calabogie damage worst since ice storm He expressed his thanks to Renfrew County emergency service personnel and the OPP. “They helped provide security around the perimeter, as well as blocked traffic on occasion when we needed it,” said Weekes. “We had excellent support from everybody.” He credited customers for their patience and support as well.

EMC news - In some areas in the region, the July 23 storm that downed trees and knocked out power caused the most havoc seen by officials since the 1998 ice storm. “Personally, I think the damage was probably the worst we’ve seen since the ice storm,” said Hydro One East Zone superintendent Jeff Weekes. The storm caused major damage, most of which was concentrated in the White Lake, Calabogie and Norway Lake areas. In this area alone, there were more than 200 broken poles. By Sunday evening, power has been restored to all areas, Weekes reported Tuesday afternoon. More than 350 Hydro One workers, including linesmen, forestry staff, technicians and support staff were in the area for the clean-up. Workers came from across the province, said Weekes. Most customers had power restored throughout the week last week with the last 150 or so homes and cottages back online by Sunday evening. SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS

Environment Canada reports the severe thunderstorms hit Eastern Ontario on Monday, July 23 with widespread straight-line winds or downbursts, but not likely tornadoes. In the wake of reports of wide-

EQUIPMENT BURIED

Submitted

A number of cottages were damaged by falling trees on July 23 along the shore of White Lake, most on the south and west sides. spread damage from winds and large hail from thunderstorms, Environment Canada dispatched a damage survey team to view the damage from the storm that initially knocked out power to about 28,000 Hydro One customers.

The team concluded the vast majority of damage was caused by downbursts or intense bursts of damaging winds. While not impossible, there was no conclusive evidence of any tornadic activity within the extensive swath of damage.

Weekes said the biggest challenge for Hydro workers was access, with thousands of trees down and blocking roads and making it impossible for crews and equipment to get to problem areas until extensive clearing was done.

Clean-up at the Slobodzian family cattle and crop farm will be ongoing for some time. The 200-acre farm near the end of Pucker Street in Greater Madawaska sustained much damage with trees down and tin torn from the roof of a barn. Most devastating, however, was the roof collapse of a barn that housed mostly all the farm equipment. In the big barn were tractors, rakes, a hay mower, balers, plows and more – all of which are now buried under the roof and debris. Paul Slobodzian was working the fields when the winds picked up and it started lightly raining. “Then it started pouring really hard and I saw red lightning coming across the sky,” he said. “I’ve never seen anything like it before.” The Slobodzians have had trouble accessing information or help and are somewhat disappointed with the lack of support from various levels of government.

Campers frazzled as big storm blows through on July 23 Continued from page 24

“It’s where to start,” said Slobdzian looking around at the downed trees, mangled tin and collapsed barn. Garry Malloy of Kanata, a camper at Glenalee Trailer Park, said in 26 years of summers spent in the area he has never seen weather and damage the likes of this. “It’s the most damage I’ve seen in my life, it’s unbelievable,” he said. The west side of White Lake was hit particularly hard, he said. He and a friend surveyed the damage by boat, shortly after the storm hit. “A pontoon boat was tossed in the air and thrown 200 yards. It was twisted like a pretzel,” he said. A regular at the Prior Sports Bar and Restaurant where many of the workers were fed, Malloy approached a group of hydro workers and expressed his gratitude for their tireless efforts. “I just wanted to thank them for the work they are doing,” said Malloy. “It’s excellent. Those guys are unbelievable.” CAMPING CHAOS

BUSY BUSINESS

Hydro and municipal workers are not the only ones logging some major overtime hours. With hundreds of hydro workers stationed in the area temporarily, businesses in Arnprior and Renfrew, including at the Prior, worked around the clock to accommodate them. The Prior had staffers ready to start serving breakfast beginning at 4:30 a.m. and kitchen staff and managers worked through the night several times to make sure the bag lunches were prepared in time for when crews hit the road. Hungry workers were back at the Prior each evening to enjoy buffet suppers. By Monday, most of the workers were gone and things had returned to normal.

Arnprior’s Charles Bernier was camping on Golden Lake, with his girlfriend Donna Bell and her daughter and a friend, when the storm hit. “It scared the bejesus out of

me,” said Bernier. The campers were in a large tent, and it took all the strength they had to hold it down as they waited out the storm. “All of us were inside holding the tent down,” he said. “The girls were freaking out. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a storm like that.” Then, lightning struck a tree some 20 feet from their site. “I was blinded by the lightning for a few seconds,” said Bernier. “It was really something.”

In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather who passed away Aug. 5, 2008. There is a bridge of memories, From here to Heaven above. It keeps you very close to us, It ‘s called the bridge of “Love”. As time goes by without you, And the days turn into years. They hold a million memories, And a thousand tears. To us you were very special, What is more to say, Except to wish with all our hearts, That you were here today. Til we are together, Never to part, We will love you forever, Adele, Chantal, Michelle, Jo-Anne and Danielle

Feb 14, 1949 – July 27, 2001 Always Missed & Forever Remembered

In loving memory of a dear sister who passed away Aug 7, 2009. It’s been 3 long years without you, and we miss you everyday. If we could turn back the hands of time, we’d ask God please let her stay. Our lives go on without you But nothing is the same. We have to hide our heartache When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that love you, Silent the tears that fall. Living without you is The hardest part of all. You did so many things for us, Your heart was so kind and true, And when we needed someone, We could always count on you . The special years will not return When we are all together, But with the love in our hearts You walk with us forever.

The good advise she gave us, Her eyes that shone with laughter, So much of her will never die, But live on ever after.

With our love Regan, Bev & Brad

MAY 11, 1921 to February 15, 2012

A trio of tasty recipes

R0011507487_0719

EMC lifestyle - This week I’m passing along three recipes that are all worth trying. The first is for a low-calorie creamy topping that you can use instead of whipping cream on fresh fruit, crepes or cake. Made with cottage cheese and flavoured with wine, this can be sweetened with either sugar or a sugar substitute. When the raspberries were in season, I served this topping over crepes filled with fresh berries. When we ran out of crepes, I spread it on thick slices of toasted homemade bread then topped that with raspberries. You might want to try the same idea with fresh peaches for a Sunday brunch treat. Use a blender if you have one to make this rather than an electric mixer. The blades of the blender break up the lumps of cottage cheese so that the topping ends up almost as smooth as whipped cream. The second recipe is for a quick, tasty salad dressing that goes well on any green salad. Made with tomato juice and flavoured with tarragon, this has a slightly sweet flavour. It can also be made with a sugar substitute if you wish. If you

Ride the Rideau, Eastern Ontario’s most successful cancer fundraiser As a medical oncologist at The Ottawa Hospital, Dr. Neil Reaume has treated hundreds of cancer patients – and all of them have a story to tell. “Every patient is different in their own way, and everyone has a story that’s touching,” said Reaume, who is also the director of the Hospital’s medical oncology training program. But one story he heard during the inaugural Ride the Rideau event in 2010 – The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s signature fundraising event in support of cancer research at the Hospital – was particularly unforgettable.

The 42-year-old Reaume enjoyed the event so much that he returned to Ride the Rideau last year, the event’s second, but this time as one of the 715 riders. Over two years, the event has raised a total of $2.7 million. While cancer touches most people’s lives, Reaume is especially grateful for the incredible success of the event. Ride the Rideau funds the work that he is involved in as a researcher, which includes interna-

tional lung and kidney cancer studies, as well as other clinical trials. There are over 70 trials currently taking place at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, with thousands of patients taking part annually. Reaume is thrilled that there are so many people out there who are just as passionate about the fight against cancer as he is. Their enthusiasm, he said, is so inspiring that he has registered for the third annual event on Saturday, September 8.

While volunteering, he met a young woman from Montreal who was riding her dad’s bike – he had died one year to the day of the ride from colon cancer. She had found out about Ride the Rideau the week before, and raised $3,000 in just seven days. “My jaw just dropped,” Reaume said. “I won’t forget that one.”

No one looked forward to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;potato bug dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories BY MARY COOK

off the leaf, and popped it into the tin of coal oil. We went up and down the rows of potatoes, covered from head to toe to keep off the mosquitoes and the ďŹ&#x201A;ies, with sweat pouring down our backs. We wore straw hats and gum rubbers. If we were lucky and worked quickly we could ďŹ nish the whole patch in the better part of a day. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even stop for lunch, so anxious were we to ďŹ nish the job and you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dare speak to Father unless it was something very important. He hated the job so much, he was in vile humour most of the day, which was very unusual for Father. When we ďŹ nished the entire patch, we went into the summer kitchen and stripped down to our underwear and Mother would have lined up seven wash basins, using the pot she used for bleaching the tea towels. With hot water from the reservoir, we scrubbed our hands until they were red and washed any other part of our body we could get at without being completely naked. It took the better part of the evening before Father got rid of the scowl on his face and not before he could be heard muttering to himself in German, which Audrey said were swear words, which he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dare say in English in front of Mother. If we were lucky, the potato bugs were ďŹ nished for the year. I often wondered if they died a slow and agonizing death in the coal oil. As I was going through a very religious spell in my young life at the time, I said a silent prayer that there was a potato bug heaven where they would ďŹ nd lots of potato plants to eat and where they could escape their coal oil deaths. R0011531387

so that we could get out to the potato ďŹ eld before the hot sun was at its cruelest. We followed Father to the drive shed where seven little tin cans were lined up on a plank like soldiers. Father took the old battered coal-oil can and ďŹ lled each tin half full with coal-oil and we headed out, down the hill behind the barn and the silo, each of us with our own ammunition to get rid of the despised potato bugs. The potato patch was about twice the size of our garden. We were big potato eaters. Father expected them fried for breakfast, creamed for lunch at noon and if there were any left over, fried with bacon fat and onions for supper. We could end up with many bags in the cellar if we were lucky. And, of course, there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a smidgen wasted either. The peels were fed to the pigs and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual for Mother to barter in Renfrew for supplies either. A bag of potatoes could mean more than two kilograms of sugar, a bag of green tea and even a few yards of print from Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store. So it was important that we save the crop from the potato bugs. It was no easy job picking off the bugs. There were no gloves to protect your ďŹ ngers. The only time I ever saw a pair of rubber gloves was when old Dr. Murphy took out my tonsils. No, you took a hold of the potato bug between your thumb and ďŹ nger and pulled it

Arnprior So I was giving some thought to how much I love living in this area. Even though I reside in Galetta, I consider my home to be Arnprior. When ever I need anything, Arnprior is my go to place. What I love most about Arnprior is that there is so much to do during all seasons. So many sports are offered here from swimming, sailing, boating, base ball and hiking in the warmer months to curling, skiing, skating, snow shoeing and ice ďŹ shing in the colder months. Arnprior boasts its own beach and marina which allows great access to boating and ďŹ shing on the river. The walking trails are fantastic. Not only do we have two well stocked grocery stores but a handful of motels are within walking distance of most amenities. But then I realized that I was probably looking at Arnprior through my own â&#x20AC;&#x153;sports mindedâ&#x20AC;? vision. When I was sharing with Jean the other day, who by the way has lived at Island View since it opened nine years ago, about how much I loved this area, she commented that she is also very enamoured with the town but for very different reasons that one could only see through the eye of an older adult. Jean mentioned that to reside in Arnprior for her means access to many senior

Transportation in and around Arnprior is easy and affordable. Taxies are readily available as is the Seniors at Home van service. Any time Jean wants to go out and about, the time it takes to get to most places is not more then ďŹ ve minutes. Our local Hospital is of great beneďŹ t to this community. From a seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point of view, if a trip to the Hospital is warranted, most tests can be done in a very short period of time eliminating the need to travel all the way into Ottawa, driving in busy trafďŹ c and trying to ďŹ nd expensive parking. The doctors are handy and many specialists come to Arnprior.

EMC lifestyle - Father was not going to be bitten twice. No-sir-eee. It sounded like a good idea the year before when he saw the ad in a farm magazine. It was guaranteeing an easy way to kill potato bugs and he sent off $2 for the latest invention which was going to put an end to one of the most hated jobs on the farm. What arrived were two pieces of small ďŹ&#x201A;at board about 10 centimetres square and instructions to put the potato bug on one piece and slam it dead with the other. Of course, you had to pick off the bug ďŹ rst. Father knew he had been had, as he chucked the two pieces of wood into the Findlay Oval and watched his two dollars go up in smoke. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to fall for something like that again - he may have only had a junior fourth-level education, but knew a crooked deal when he saw one. Now, Father loved farming. He loved his land and he loved his livestock, but what he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t abide was picking off potato bugs. Yet it was a job that had to be done if we were ever to realize a good crop of potatoes for winter. So this time of year, when the plants were high, ďŹ lled with blossoms and in a few weeks ready to be dug up for the new potatoes, we could also see hundreds of miserable little bugs eating to their hearts content on what would surely be the end of our crop and a disaster if left alone. We called it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;potato bug dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Emerson said you looked forward to it as much as you looked forward to a trip into Renfrew to get a tooth pulled. We hated the job with a passion and with Father lamenting about it, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it any easier. The entire family got into the job, we ďŹ ve children, Mother and Father. We were told the night before, just before we went to bed and it was enough to keep you tossing and turning most of the night. Of course, my brother Emerson didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the job any easier for me when he told me one of the Kallies boys got rabies from potato bugs. My sister Audrey said to pay him no heed - it was impossible to get rabies from a potato bug. This greatly put my mind at ease. Audrey, 11 years older than I was, was very clever. At breakfast, Father sat like a black cloud at the head of the table. Mother said we would leave cleaning up the kitchen

cation around their home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the green thumb,â&#x20AC;? he said. Success didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come overnight. The Hansons have been developing their garden for 18 years. Sandy admits to being a plant enthusiast and hosta fanatic. There are over 700 varieties of perennials and 500 varieties of hostas around the house. Sandra Petrie, who volunteered her services to greet the people at the Hansons, was more than impressed with the turnout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the crowds,â&#x20AC;? she said. Given good weather, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing the people these garden tours draw, Petrie added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was on the Burnstown (Church) garden tour a couple of weeks ago. They raised $6,000 and they thought theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get $3,000.â&#x20AC;? Just down the road, Heather Forrest was greeting people as they entered the property of Peter and Mary Stanton at 1305 Burnstown Rd. She was equally impressed with the turn-out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I forgot to bring a book to read, but I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have had time to read it anyway,â&#x20AC;? Forrest observed. The Stantons suffered through a rough stretch when their 1850s heritage home, known as the old Fisher home, was destroyed by ďŹ re on Christmas Eve of 2009. But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put the pieces back together. As the garden tour brochure said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Does this garden look like it was planted a mere one year ago, in July 2011?â&#x20AC;? The rear garden layout is reminiscent of a formal country courtyard. There is also a stone patio, and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Grannyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is ďŹ lled with oldfashioned roses and heirloom peonies handed down from Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandmother.

People chat while overlooking the Collinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pond. The front garden is more informal and relaxed, where one can sit on the porch and enjoy fragrant plants and lots of hostas and shade-loving plants. Keith and Lillian Collins welcomed tour-goers to 107 Duncan Dr. in McNab-Braeside. Strolling through the property, one found a Zen garden, a raised vegetable bed and a herb wheel nestled in a vegetable plot turned ďŹ&#x201A;ower garden. People could take in the ďŹ sh pond at the back of the property, and relax on a bench next to the pond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great weather (for the tour),â&#x20AC;? Keith Collins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing that would be better would be rain. We do need it,â&#x20AC;? he added. Collins said he was looking forward to Monday, July 23. He said all the tour hosts were to meet and conduct their own tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to seeing what everyone else has.â&#x20AC;? Also featured on Satur-

dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tour was the garden of artists Valerie Roos Webster and John Webster on Dickson Road, Burnstown. They have a plantation of 40-foot red pine trees, a shade garden, a small goldďŹ sh pond and an area for sun-loving plants. At the Carverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garden on Lochwinnoch Road in Braeside, Dub and Frankie Jubyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard work has transformed a hayďŹ eld. There are perennials, vegetables and grapes as well as the beautiful carvings in Dubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workshop, Grace Yantha of Glasgow United Church noted. The home of Robyn and Robert Lamont on River Road has a pond, a beautiful waterfall, and a variety of lowmaintenance hardy perennials, Yantha added. Roger and Jill Danbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden on Russell Street in Arnprior is unique, Yantha said. It is surrounded on three sides by the Madawaska River. Sun and shade beds, mature trees, natural rock and steps lead to the river.
