News - The Arnprior Business Improvement Area may have to pull up its shutters due to lack of interest. The BIA plans to try to hold one last annual meeting to gauge its relevance, but once it is dissolved there can never be another one in its place. “That’s the sad part that people don’t know,� said BIA chairwoman Chantal Beauleau. “Once they stop it, there will never be another BIA apparently. It’s very major.� At its last AGM, the BIA did not have enough members attend and “because of that we couldn’t have a quorum when it comes time to voting and things like that,� Beauleau explained. “This year we haven’t done a lot because we don’t have (enough support),� she added. “That’s why we’ve tried to do the minimum of the minimum to keep going.� See BIA Page 5

Rockin’ fair week promised

News – A million barrels a day of crude oil could soon be travelling by pipeline through the Upper Ottawa Valley. TransCanada Corporation announced Aug. 1 that it is proceeding with the proposed Energy East Pipeline. Part of that project features the conversion of one of two natural gas pipelines through the Ottawa Valley from a gas to an oil pipeline. See PIPELINE Page 4

Entertainment – It’s fair week in Arnprior and one of Canada’s top blues-rock guitarists is coming to help us party. And David Wilcox of Wilcox, of Riverboat Fantasy and Hypnotizin’ Boogie fame is looking forward to it. The Ottawa Valley has great audiences, says the singer-songwriter who will take to the fair stage about 9:30 p.m. this Friday, Aug. 9. The 159th Arnprior Fair entertainment kicks off today (Thursday) with the opening of the midway at 4 p.m., a new mini-demolition derby at 7 p.m. and rising country star Tim Hicks at 9:30 p.m. A special ride/lunch/entertainment fair offering to special needs people from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. today had attracted 128 registrants as of mid-day last Friday. The fair runs through Sunday with Disturbing the Peace and Wilcox Friday, the main demolition derby at 5 p.m. Saturday, and a strongmen competition and award-winning country singer Carol Baker Sunday (for the full list of events, see Page 36-37). As for Wilcox, what can showgoers in Arnprior expect from one of Canada’s top entertainers? “They can expect a lot of fun, JOHN CARTER/METROLAND a good party and some great rock Madison Toner is excited about the arrival of the Conklin Super Show mid- and roll,� said Wilcox, who has way rides at the Arnprior Fairgrounds. The midway will be at the Arnprior played in Arnprior before but not Fair Thursday through Sunday (Aug. 8-11). Toner, who is entering Grade 9 at the fair.

at Arnprior District High School, is getting a head start on her volunteer hours by helping the fair board prepare for its 159th fair.

Blues rocker to headline Friday at the fair Continued from front

Wilcox told the Chronicle-Guide he has encountered fun people on all his trips to the Valley. He has spent more than 20 years in the music business, racking up ďŹ ve gold and platinum albums and numerous awards. He ďŹ rst made his name as a wild, live performer and then a recording artist whose most popular songs include Riverboat Fantasy, Downtown Came Uptown and Layin’ Pipe. His most recent album release was Boy in the Boat in 2007. It’s been a busy summer for Wilcox and

the other members of his trio. “We’ve been busy touring across Canada,� he said. The group tackles a variety of genres and has a lot of fun doing it. His most recent gig was Voyageur Days in Mattawa. “We keep it loose - we don’t use a set list,� said Wilcox. As far as the audience goes, he likes to get a feel for who’s out there and let the crowd come along for a rockin’ ride. “I like them to just sort of come with us,� he said, adding he sometimes looks at the crowd as one big entity. Montreal-born and Toronto-raised, Wil-

cox said he’s very much a city boy (“I’ve never had a driver’s license�) but still loves to come out to the country for shows. What is Wilcox’s favourite song to perform? “It changes from night to night,� he said. As far as his own taste in music goes, Wilcox’s is as varied as his own songs over the years. “I like everything from Lady Gaga to classical music,� he said. “It depends what mood I’m in.� Wilcox is part of a trio that consists of bassist Russ Boswell and drummer Davide Direnzo.

clinics she has held in the riding this summer the most frequently asked question, especially in remote areas, is when cell phone coverage and high speed Internet are coming. For people in places such as Braeside, Horton and Griffith, it’s an important matter, she said. She noted that the issue of connectivity, and who should own access to it, is at the heart of the campaign by companies such as Rogers and Bell, who argue more competition is not needed because Canadians already enjoy low prices. “I am interested in what you have to say about cell, Internet, text messaging or any other wireless service currently available,” said Gallant, urging constituents to call her office or share their stories on her website at cherylgallant.com/hangin-on-atelephone-wire.

Continued from front

TransCanada representatives met with municipal officials from McNab-Braeside and Horton in June to give them a heads-up on the proposed transformation that will take about four years to complete. They noted that converting the existing pipeline would be much less disruptive than building a new one. They’ve indicated there will be public information meetings on the plan this fall, likely in October, well before any work is done. The gas pipeline in question runs down the Ottawa Valley from Pembroke through Whitewater Region and Horton, crosses Highway 17 in the Goshen area, traverses McNab-Braeside to the Pakenham area and then into south Ottawa and down to Iroquois. In its news release, TransCanada announced it is moving forward with the 1.1-million-barrel-per-day Energy East Pipeline project based on receiving binding, long-term contracts from producers and refiners. The company says the contracts for about 900,000 barrels a day of oil confirmed strong market support for a pipeline that will, if all regulatory approvals are granted, transport crude oil from Western Canada to Eastern Canadian refineries and export terminals. “We are very pleased with the outcome of the open season for the Energy East Pipeline held earlier this year and are excited to move forward with a major project that will bring many benefits across Canada,” said TransCanada CEO Russ Girling. “This is an historic opportunity to connect

the oil resources of western Canada to the consumers of eastern Canada, creating jobs, tax revenue and energy security for all Canadians for decades to come.” TransCanada representatives told local councils that the pipeline will give eastern Canadians a stable and reliable supply of crude oil from Alberta and Saskatchewan and cut down this area’s dependence on expensive imported crude oil. Eastern Canada currently imports about 700,000 barrels of oil a day. The project involves converting about 3,000 kilometres of natural gas pipeline to crude oil service and constructing about 1,400 kilometres of new pipeline. The pipeline will terminate in Saint John, New Brunswick, where TransCanada and Irving Oil have formed a joint venture to build, own and operate a new deep water marine terminal that will send the oil to overseas markets. The pipeline is expected to cost about $12 billion and be in service by late-2017 for deliveries in Quebec and 2018 for deliveries to New Brunswick. The company is promising to “engage in open and meaningful discussions with Aboriginal communities and key stakeholder groups” along the pipeline route. Some groups, including Greenpeace, the Council of Canadians and Ecology Ottawa, have expressed concern about having an oil pipeline going through the area, citing recent spills in the U.S. For more information about the Energy East Pipeline project, visit www.energyeastpipeline. com or www.oleoducenergieest.com.

Fairin’ to go

Hit-and-run tips sought after woman injured

JOHN CARTER/METROLAND

Arnprior Fair Board directors, members of the Arnprior Agricultural Society, gather at the Fairgrounds July 31 to go over last-minute plans for the fair that kicks off today and runs through Sunday (Aug. 8-11). Going over the plans, in front from left, are volunteers Jeff Schlievert, Sue Clark, Brian Majaury, Diane Swaine, Kerri McNulty and Murray Swaine; and in back Scott Rancourt, Monica Schnob, Cathy Wilson, Scott Brumm and Jeff Desarmia.

News - The Arnprior OPP is looking for the public’s help in the investigation of a hit-and-run that occurred in town Saturday, July 27. An elderly woman was injured when hit by a vehicle in the intersection of Daniel Street and Baskin Drive between 3:30 and 4 p.m. OPP are looking for any information in regards to the incident. They say an unidentified female was driving the vehicle. If you have any information that can help locate the vehicle and driver, the OPP ask that you call them at 1-888310-1122. The Daniel-Baskin intersection has historically been a dangerous one for pedestrians. Police are still looking for the driver of a vehicle that injured a woman and killed her dog when hitting them in the intersection in mid-March. A group of residents in the area have lobbied the town to fund improvements in the area, arguing that both Baskin and Staye Court Drive are dangerous for pedestrians.

BIA to get one more chance to see if there is enough interest to continue Continued from front

The BIA has been at the root of several beautification projects downtown, such as the addition of flowers and benches, window front mural contests and Christmas competitions, as well as financially supporting such initiatives as the summer Concerts in the Park series, the White Pine Festival, and Christmas concerts and baskets. It’s unfair to suggest BIA members have only their own best interests in mind when cleaning up the downtown, said Beauleau. “First of all, it’s a volunteer job,” she said. “I

gain absolutely nothing but more work. “I have absolutely nothing to gain in it,” she added. “I just care and was hoping to continue embellishing the downtown and things like that.” Without the BIA in place, some of the projects could fall to the wayside. “That will jeopardize the White Pine Festival because the BIA is the biggest sponsor of the White Pine Festival,” said Beauleau. The BIA imposes a special tax on business members and that fee collected by the town creates its yearly budget.

Because the BIA did not meet the minimum amount of people required at the annual meeting, the budget could not legally be voted upon. So Arnprior council decided to take interim control of it at a special meeting July 31. That will come in effect in a few weeks. COUNCIL TAKES OVER

Town council supports the BIA but cannot go against the Municipal Act, confirmed CAO Michael Wildman. Hope to retain the organization isn’t lost, but

BIA members have to step up and take action. “I think the BIA has enough money to last another year, but I don’t know if they (council) will let us do it,” said Beauleau. “But I think we have enough money to buy flowers and things like this for next year, very little of it, but at least some of it to embellish the town.” There needs to be two more people on the board of directors for it to continue. Council will gather the downtown BIA members in December and all will vote on whether the organization should continue or be disbanded.

Wagle and Kirk Lavallee visited both Arnprior and McNab-Braeside July 31 to present the combination detectors to municipal and fire officials. The Arnprior Fire Department will take the lead role in delivering 240 combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to homes in town. Another 184 detectors are being distributed in McNab-Braeside.

ed both the Arnprior and McNab-Braeside detector announcements. She pointed out that the combination detectors are the second line of defence against fire and carbon monoxide outbreaks (the first is having properly working heating systems). The third line is the fire department, but it’s preferable that homeowners take actions to prevent fires so they won’t ever have to call firefighters, she noted. “Arnprior has taken several critical steps to not only respond to fires and emergency situations, but to ensure all reasonable steps are taken to educate and prevent life-threatening situations before they occur,” said Arnprior Mayor David Reid.

Project Zero funds detectors Continued from Page 6

R0012245888_0808

“With the help of Enbridge Gas Distribution, the Fire Marshall’s Public Safety Council and the Project Zero initiative, the installation of combination carbon monoxide/smoke alarms is another step in ensuring the safety of our residents, said Reid. Through Project Zero, 15 fire departments will deliver more than 2,900 combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to Ontario homes. Other participating fire departments in this area include Mississippi Mills and Horton. The alarms will be distributed to homes in neighborhoods where the number of residential fires and fire-related deaths and injuries have been higher than average. During 2012, 70 people died as a result of fires in Ontario and 59 of those deaths resulted from residential fires. Enbridge has donated $100,000 this year to expand the public education program aimed at reducing residential fire and carbon monoxide deaths to zero. Since the launch in 2009, Enbridge has supported the delivery of Project Zero to 34 Ontario communities. “Safety is our top priority at Enbridge, and we’re committed to helping ensure there are no deaths in Ontario due to carbon monoxide exposure,” said Wagle, who is Enbridge Gas Distribution’s operations manager. “Educating customers about the importance of installing a combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm and properly maintaining fuel-burning equipment is an ongoing priority.” “Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are critical life safety devices,” said Ontario Fire Marshal Ted Wieclawek. “They detect the presence of smoke and deadly gas and provide those precious seconds for occupants to escape. Everyone needs to have them in their homes.” “Enbridge Gas Distribution is notorious for ensuring high standards in safe delivery of their product to customers,” said Arnprior fire chief John Okum. “Project Zero is just another great example of how Enbridge Gas Distribution is reaching out to communities by working closely with the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council and the Arnprior Fire Department.”

Aldene Styles and Enbridge supervisor Kirk Lavallee. In Ontario, it is the law that every home must have a working smoke alarm on every story and outside all sleeping areas. While carbon monoxide alarms are not currently legislated in Ontario, they are highly recommended by the Ontario Fire Marshal. Combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, when properly installed and maintained, help provide an early warning needed for people to safely escape from a house fire or carbon monoxide exposure. Carbon monoxide is a toxic, odourless byproduct of incomplete combustion of many types of common fuels. It is important all fuelburning equipment, including wood stoves, be properly maintained to prevent carbon monoxide build-up. But just in case there is a problem, carbon monoxide alarms are recommended to protect against dangers of poisoning. The Arnprior fire department provides fire prevention and public education services as well as enforcement of the Ontario Fire Code and emergency response for the residence of Arnprior.

Hartwick. “Whether you’re awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for smoke and fumes” Hartwick noted the Project Zero program fits well with the fire department’s fire prevention and public education programs for the township’s 7,000 residents. “Our number one priority is the safety of the families within our community.” “Every level of government faces the challenge of balance between investing in economic prosperity while protecting the most vulnerable in our community,” said McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell. “Ensuring fire safety across McNab-Braeside’s 256 square kilometres is a

challenge that the dedication of our fire department continually meets. “Enbridge Gas Distribution has provided clean, safe energy for our residents, for many years and it is with great appreciation that the Township of McNab-Braeside thanks both Enbridge Gas Distribution and the Fire Marshall’s Public Fire Safety committee for selecting McNab-Braeside as a participant in Project Zero,” she added. “Project Zero will help our seniors and those struggling to make ends meet remain safely independent in their rural homes.” For more information on Enbridge and Project Zero, visit www.enbridgegas.com.

EDITORIAL

Another reason to four-lane Hwy. 17 Renfrew County has another addition, unfortunately, to its presentation that puts a human face to the dangers of Highway 17. The power-point presentation that includes photographs of motorists killed on Highway 17 was created just over a year ago to help drive home to provincial officials that Highway 17 from Arnprior up the Valley is dangerous. One of those 13 victims was Bryan Casey, who was killed in April 2011, in a head-on crash on a section of Highway 17 near Arnprior that has since been four-laned. That case is still before the courts. The County of Renfrew is arguing that fourlaning of the highway should come sooner rather than later to help foster economic development in the area, particularly with the train tracks being torn up, and to cut down on the death toll. With the train tracks now gone, there will be more truck traffic on the already busy highway than ever. A young Renfrew mother is the latest victim to die on the highway, after her car collided with a semi-trailer truck July 24. That makes at least five traffic fatalities this year between Arnprior and Deep River. In the more than 25 deaths since 2010, sev-

eral have involved transport trucks. While it can be argued that many of the collisions are the fault of drivers, not the highway, having so much traffic on such a busy two-lane stretch of road is a recipe for disaster, After all, Highway 17 is part of the Trans Canada Highway and there is plenty of goingthrough traffic to add to the streams of local, cottager and truck traffic that enters the highway from collector roads in this area. With the highway being so busy, a second of inattention or an unexpected happening can easily prove fatal because they can so often lead to deadly head-on crashes. Police may never find out why Amy Kellar’s small car inexplicably veered into the path of a transport truck on a straight stretch of Highway 17 west of Goshen Road. But what is clear is that if the highway had been four-laned, the result would almost certainly been less dire. Kellar’s car would most likely have veered into guard rails and not into a huge truck coming the other way at highway speed. And we wouldn’t have had another face to add to the already far too many on the county’s presentation on the perils of a two-lane Highway 17.

Korean War doesn’t get the respect it deserves To the editor: “The war that never was.� Somebody’s quote. I forget whose. Appropriate, nonetheless. For those unborn at the time, or older folks who more or less slept through it, I refer to the Korean War, which wrapped up, officially, 60 years ago yesterday. I say officially because no peace treaty has ever been signed by the severed halves of the Korean peninsula, and perhaps given the nature of the strange regime that governs the North (the ‘Orphan Kingdom’) never will be. I remember arriving home to Carleton Place on or about July 12, 1953, tired, dirty and sweaty after almost a month of travel on an American troopship that took nearly three weeks to crawl across the Pacific, followed by five days on the train to find my reception committee - my father and one friend from school. Typically Canadian, eh? Low-key. I should not have been surprised, for the ‘West’, including Canada, has a long history of ignoring events in far-off Korea.

ination for 35 years from 1910 to 1945 when the end of WWII removed the Japanese occupying forces. And then following an uneasy five years as a divided nation, a legacy of WWII, the ‘million-man’ army that the North had put together, trained and equipped by Soviet Russia, smashed across the border, precipitating a three-year war that killed between two and three million people June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953. Canada, like the U.S. and the rest of the western world, was unprepared after the major demobilization in 1945. We responded to the invasion by creating a ‘special force’, all volunteers to assist the South Koreans. Our troops performed well, distinguishing themselves particularly in a defensive role at Kapyong in April 1951. Their tenacity in hanging on grimly to their hill under prolonged attack by much superior forces forestalled a Communist offensive which would have led to the fall of Seoul, the capital, once again. It had already changed hands four times. Still, Canada’s government and press during the war and for decades afterward insisted on referring to the war as a ‘UN

police action’ or the ‘Korean Conflict’. We, Canada’s Korean veterans who remain, perhaps a third of the original 35.000 who served there during the war and after the armistice as peacekeepers would really appreciate it if those tired old cliches were finally put to rest. Was it all worth it, this war that cost Canada the lives of 516 young Canadians? Well, I don’t think anyone truly wins a war. They’re too costly in so many ways and often enough don’t yield a real long-term solution to whatever set them off in the first place. However, compare the two Koreas as they exist today and decide whether some 15-20 nations led by the U.S. and under the aegis of the UN did the right thing intervening in 1950. Today, South Korea is a free, democratic society. It is a major industrial exporter, a respected member of the UN family. In every sense a success. North Korea with its rigid centralized Soviet-style economy is a basket case that frequently needs help to feed its people. With its paranoia of other nations, its unstable leadership, it remains a virtual police state whose citizens dare not speak their mind. It exports nothing but trouble and consistently disturbs the peace and security of the region. How will the history of this troubled peninsula play out?

Even after 60 years too soon to tell. Wars cast long shadows into the future. Anyway, on the occasion of the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the ceasefire and looking forward to my 82nd birthday tomorrow, I take the opportunity to share a few thoughts of the war that remains little known to many Canadians today. Because of the efforts of Korean-born Senator Yonah Martin, this year 2013 has been officially designated the year of the Canadian Veterans of the Korean War. E.T. (Ted) Graham Arnprior

Society needs to focus on preventing hunger conversation sooner rather than later. To draw an analogy, we treat cancer when it appears in a person, but we all agree that it is better to prevent it from occurring in the first place. The same can be said for house fires; much better to prevent them than from having to call the fire department when one happens. Why, then, can’t we try to prevent hunger from appearing in our communities rather than dealing with its consequences? I realize that this means asking some very difficult ques-

MNR’s concern over moth misplaced To the Editor: Well folks the insanity at Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) headquarters has now become an epidemic - as evidenced by a recent article in an area newspaper concerning a “newly identified” and “globally threatened” species called the ‘Bogbean Buckmoth’, which is what granny used to buy moth balls to protect her night gown from before Raid came along. According to the MNR, this Bogbean Buckmoth has been on the Endangered Species list since 2010 and is “possibly” residing within Renfrew County borders. Isn’t it reassuring to know that while we are struggling to make a living - pay bills and keep a roof over our heads – the MNR is wasting our tax money running around making fools of themselves by dictating what we can do on our private property - yet can still find time to create a fuss over the “potential” existence of a moth. No such fuss however is being made over Cobden’s Muskrat Lake - where the MNR is allegedly directly responsible for 59 per cent of the pollution entering the lake. But thanks to the Pembroke MNR, those days are gone and they are now hobnobbing with some Renfrew County council bureaucrats who recently congratulated themselves on “the success we have had getting the MNR to listen to us about enforcing the Endangered Species Act.” Well don’t believe a word coming from county council - because they’ve been blowing smoke up where the sun don’t shine for years - while promoting the Ottawa River heritage designation, the county’s Official Plan and a whole slew of MNR/Ministry of Environment land use and development constraints. Not to worry though - as the MNR has assured us any landowner who find a Bogbean Buckmoth on their land can apply for a Stewardship Program supporting protection and recovery of the species. This was followed by an announcement from the Ontario Forest Industry Association president who declared: “Our collective perseverance has succeeded,” and the only thing missing as a backdrop to this pork barrel rhetoric was former Premier Dalton McGuinty singing the in his long johns. However the people who really succeeded were the MNR bureaucrats, who simply blew more smoke up with this character also - but county folk are not being fooled because even a four-year-old knows there’s something wrong about calling an area a “potential” moth habitat, as well as the reason why fly swatters, bug zappers and heels on men’s boots were invented. No wonder us oldtimers long for those good old days when sensible people were running things instead of the way it is today.

tions, but I also believe that we are, collectively, up to this challenge. Quite simply, we owe it to ourselves, and to future generations. Thank you for publishing a story on such an important social problem, and one that does not seek easy answers to it. Kerry Badgley Kemptville

To the editor: I have to inform your readers of what I found on the beach today (Aug. 1). I picked-up over 10 pieces of pink balloons littered across a 20-foot area of beachfront along the walking path by the river. Why would you leave balloon garbage in the sand, where geese, ducks and seagulls walk along and peck in search of food? Most common deaths for wild birds and turtles along beaches, shorelines, creeks and various watersheds are caused by garbage, hooks, fishing line, broken glass, and trash. The birds and turtles are injured, choked, strangled or starved to death because people leave their garbage behind. I did pick-up the debris and put the bright pink balloons in the garbage bin, a few feet away. This next report I witnessed was from early July.

A middle aged man and woman with their large, bull-dog faced canine were in the back part of the cemetery, with vehicle parked under the shade of the trees. The couple used a long plastic tool that tosses a ball a long distance for the dog to fetch. This game of dog fetch the ball was over cemetery grounds and between plots. I witnessed the dog running anywhere and everywhere to fetch the ball. How involved will I get the next time I witness this lack of respect? I will take the plate number of the vehicle, call by-law, snap pictures with my cell phone, and in that I have to, I will call 911 from my cell phone and await the arrival of the OPP. What would you do to help stop this type of disrespect? Denise A. Bélanger Arnprior

Fight back against the eco-fascists To the Editor: Opinion - In January this year, I happened across a very well researched book by Canada’s own Elizabeth Nickson, in the Renfrew Library. Eco-Fascists – How Radical Conservationists Are Destroying Our Natural Heritage, came about after Nickson went through ‘Eco-Freak Hell’ in a simple task she embarked upon, to sever her 28-acre land holdings on Saltspring Island, B.C., into two parcels. Nickson, being a successful, stalwart and renowned investigative journalist of mega smarts and tenacity, travelled over 15,000 miles in her bid to research just how deeply embedded the eco-fascists are in North America and what destruction they had brought about. She travelled throughout the U.S. speaking with many, many people and hearing of the horror stories so similar and many much, much worse than what she herself had endured. Multi-million-dollars lawsuits that dragged on and on for decades against government agencies, lives ruined, land lost, millions of acres of land locked down, jobs lost, farmers and ranchers decimated, people displaced in the millions. After completing some of my own research, I contacted Nickson to ask if anyone else in Canada is on to this and trying to combat the Sierra Club, Suzuki Foundation, Greenpeace, etc. and the myriad of other embedded

eco-fascist groups. The following Monday morning I received a call from Jessica Lauren Annis, registered property planner of Toronto and founder of www.OperationPushback.ca. Annis was kind enough to permit me to use her slide presentation as a basis, that I could inform local politicians, residents, farmers, landowners and hunting clubs of not only the radical rules and restrictions we face, the attack on what very little property rights we now enjoy, but as well, about the mega-structure and grand plan that is the driving force behind these socialist policies. Have you heard of U.N. Agenda 21? I had not either, but it is absolutely frightening, it is real and it is spreading its socialist tentacles to strangle the entire planet. And, your federal government of 1992 signed us on to it. International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) is the implementation arm of U.N. Agenda 21, and they were formerly called Local Agenda 21 or L.A. 21, but they changed their name in 2003 to better hide the fact they are the offspring of the mother ship U.N. Agenda 21. Some 114 Canadian cites are card-carrying members of ICLEI and these cities pay ICLEI your tax dollars. ICLEI is headquartered in Germany. My question is, what the heck can Canada learn about planning and

land use from a foreign body headquartered in Germany? Are there no Canadians to think up land use planning for Canadian cities? The Green Energy Act and Endangered Species Act (ESA), compliments of Dalton McGuinty, essentially give the eco-fascists carte blanche to have their way with your land, your rights, your self-determination on your property. With the ESA, a whole three days of public hearing were held. The groups pressuring McGuinty were: Environmental Defence, Ontario Nature, Wildlife Conservation Society Canada, Ivey Foundation, Sierra Legal Defence Fund, Sierra Club of Canada Ontario Chapter, Forest Ethics, CPAWS-Wildlands League, David Suzuki Foundation and Earthroots. It was Christmas forever for these radical groups as McGuinty giftwrapped the entire province and your land and your rights in a pretty colourful green bow and handed it to them on a green platter! Clearly one must conclude, it was a predetermined outcome. The radical claims these groups make, how we are all bad for planet earth, oil is bad, humans bad, industry bad, etc. are outlandish and akin to someone peeing on your leg and telling you it’s raining. Don’t know about you, but I ain’t buyin’ it anymore. On July 18, I had the pleasure to

attend a meeting in Kanata at the invitation of the Frontier Centre for Public Policy and Jack MacLaren MPP for Carleton-Mississippi Mills. Some of you may know MacLaren in his role as past president of the Ontario Landowners Association and how he was, and still is, a fighter for our rights in Ontario. TAlso in attendance were good rural leaders such as Tom Black, current president of the Ontario Landowners Association; Marlene Black, editor of the Landowner Magazine; John Jeffrey, councillor of KillaloeHagarty-Richards Township as well as president of the Renfrew County Private Landowners Association; Donna Burns, president Renfrew County Landowners Association; Marianne Wilkinson, former Kanata mayor and current Kanata ward councillor in the City of Ottawa; and a crowd of about 80 concerned folks like you and myself. Also speaking that evening was Annis, who spoke of the dangers of the ESA and ICLEI and the planning that was taking over our province. MacLaren had Jessica give her presentation to the P.C. Caucus a little while back. (Eleven or so members actually showed, however, not our own MPP John Yakabuski.)

We must pass legislation banning ICLEI from our cities, towns and provinces, Radical and restrictive laws and policies like the Green Energy Act and the Endangered Species Act must be rewritten if not entirely discarded to protect our personal and national sovereignty, heritage and rights to determine our own destinies!

Pikwakanagan Chief Kirby Whiteduck, left, accepts a commemorative pen, fashioned in bird’s eye maple by county resident Jeff Muzzi, from Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon. This expression of friendship came after Whiteduck led a June 26 presentation before county council on the municipal structure and activities of the Algonquin First Nation community near Golden Lake. Pikwakanagan, which means hilly place, has 2,248 affiliated community members, of which about 400 live on the 1,818-acre reserve along with about 50 unregistered family members. The other members live in other Renfrew County municipalities and across the country. In 2012, Pikwakanagan issued T-4 slips for part- and full-time work to 194 individuals. Whiteduck said the presentation was intended to “provide more information on who we are and what we do,” as the only Algonquin First Nation group with an Ontario reserve. In thanking Chief Whiteduck, Emon said: “We greatly appreciate the many kindnesses and generosities of spirit and friendship you have offered over the years … One of the things I’ve repeatedly learned, in watching how you conduct yourself, is your diplomacy, patience and wisdom.”

Algonquin Land Claim – forestry Robert Potts, Principal negotiator

Opinion - Forested areas have been integral to the Algonquin way of life since time immemorial. The proposed Forestry Chapter of the Preliminary Draft Agreement-inPrinciple (AIP) recognizes the importance of the forest industry in the Algonquin Settlement Area to both the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) and their neighbours. The cornerstone of this Chapter is the commitment by the AOO and Ontario to work cooperatively to maintain support for the existing forest industry, while increasing Algonquin participation in, and benefits from the forestry sector. This commitment reflects the importance of forestry to the culture, economic stability and prosperity of the AOO. Through several proposed initiatives and collaborative partnerships, the Preliminary Draft AIP carves out more meaningful participation for the AOO within the forest industry. A number of proposed elements to be reflected in a Final Agreement are highlighted below. Economic Development and Training Opportunities Key to the Forestry Chapter is the development of economic opportunities and supporting measures to increase Algonquin employment and participation in the forest industry throughout the Settlement Area, including in Algonquin Park. These initiatives include: • notifying the AOO of government contracts and job opportunities related to forestry in Algonquin Park; • encouraging potential Algonquin employment, training and contract opportunities with Sustainable Forest License (SFL) holders; • the consideration of the potential for Algonquin benefits as a relevant factor when Ontario is evaluating tender bids or other government contracting procedures;

• the provision of training opportunities by Ontario and the Algonquin Forestry Authority for the AOO in the forestry industry in Algonquin Park, including silviculture. Forestry Management and Planning A Final Agreement will also set out the nature and scope of Algonquin participation in forestry management and planning, including representation on planning teams, both inside and outside of Algonquin Park. In addition, Ontario will appoint at a minimum one person nominated by the AOO to the Board of Directors of the Algonquin Forestry Authority for Algonquin Park. Ontario continues its commitment to consultation with the AOO on any new forestry policy initiatives within the Settlement Area, including the forestry tenure and pricing review. MOVING FORWARD

The AOO, Ontario and representatives for SFLs located within the Algonquin Settlement Area have already begun working together to address forestry matters related to the Algonquin treaty negotiations as well as to collaboratively develop economic opportunities to enhance the competitiveness of the region. As we move forward towards a historic modern-day treaty, the AOO are committed to working in partnership with Ontario and our neighbours to foster a sustainable forestry industry built on a foundation of economic prosperity, conservation and stewardship. This column is the fifth in a series providing insights into Algonquin history, the foundation for the land claim, elements of the Preliminary Draft AIP and next steps in the journey. The next column will focus on the Heritage and Culture component of the Preliminary Draft AIP. For more information visit www.tanakiwin.com.

WATER RESTRICTIONS

SKATE PARK TRIPS

The Watering Restrictions By-law 04-14 is designed to regulate and control the usage of water, within the Almonte Ward, in the hot summer months. Between May 1st and September 30th each year there are limitations on who can water and at what time. Odd number houses may water on odd calendar days and even numbered houses may water on even numbered days. Watering may occur between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. each day and from only one connection. Midday is the hottest time of the day and the water is more likely to be wasted through evaporation when watering at this time. Watering from more than one connection simply uses too much water at once. A significant amount of new grass or sod is exempted from these provisions for one week. Any other violations of the by-law may result in a fine.

The Town of Mississippi Mills, Recreation and Culture Department in conjunction with TYPS (Taking Young People Seriously) are offering The Youth of Mississippi Mills the opportunity to explore 3 different Skateboard Parks this summer!!

Surprise, surprise, wildflowers get sexy too Lifestyle - When it comes to courtship, one usually thinks of animals, with birds often being the ďŹ rst to come to mind. Cedar Waxwing pairs pass berries back and forth and Northern Harriers exchange food or nest material in midair. Mammals can also put on a great show. During the rut, mighty bull Moose smash small trees into oblivion as they try to win the eye and ear of the females. WildďŹ&#x201A;owers are seldom considered in the context of courtship displays. Yet they do have them, and theirs are every bit as complex as those of any animal. But instead of attracting the eye of another of their kind, wildďŹ&#x201A;owers put on shows designed to catch the eyes and noses of animals, with insects being the usual targets. Because wildďŹ&#x201A;owers cannot uproot and go looking for mates, they have evolved novel ways of fulďŹ lling their sexual needs. They attract small animals with sweet, edible offerings, guide them to exactly where those payloads reside, and

Michael Runtz Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way then remove any pollen the animals are carrying before loading them with pollen as they leave. As payment for the food, the animals are unknowingly performing sexual favours for the ďŹ&#x201A;owers; they are delivering sperm-containing pollen. These living pollen taxis are better known as pollinators. Most wildďŹ&#x201A;owers attract pollinators by offering sugar water (nectar) as an edible bribe. They advertise their â&#x20AC;&#x153;giftsâ&#x20AC;? through combinations of colour, form, and smell. Insects learn which ďŹ&#x201A;owers offer the best return for their efforts and visit them with

a vengeance. They are often visually directed to the nectar source by patterns in the ďŹ&#x201A;owerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s petals. These â&#x20AC;&#x153;nectar guidesâ&#x20AC;? are the stunning spots, stripes and blotches that we ďŹ nd so very appealing. In addition to these stunning patterns, there are others formed by ultraviolet light; unfortunately these are invisible to our eye. Where the nectar is held in a ďŹ&#x201A;ower dictates the type of pollinator that comes calling. Nectar housed in shallow cups such as those found in milkweeds attract insects owning a great variety of tongue lengths. Flowers that hide nectar deep in spurs or in wells at the base of petals usually attract long-tongued insects such as butterďŹ&#x201A;ies. Many ďŹ&#x201A;owers also employ special perfumes to attract pollinators. While many of these are sweet to our noses, not all are. Red Trilliums smell like rotting ďŹ&#x201A;esh to attract Flesh Flies and Wild Ginger smells like rotting fungus to catch the attention of Fungus Gnats. During the day, the closed blooms of Evening Primroses lack scents, but at dusk when

During the day, Primrose Moths, right, often hide inside the closed blooms of their name-giving flowers. the ďŹ&#x201A;owers open, sweet fragrances that attract moths are released. One of that wildďŹ&#x201A;owerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main pollinators is the pink and yellow Primrose Moth, which often hides inside closed primrose blooms during the day. Now is an excellent time to see wildďŹ&#x201A;owers and their pollinators in action, with wet meadows being among

the best places to visit. In that habitat, Joe Pye-weed and Swamp Milkweed are currently attracting a lot of attention. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel uncomfortable when watching these lively sex shows. Flowers lack the inhibitions possessed by many of our kind!

KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

News – It was a network card failure that caused several 911 calls from the Clayton area to go unanswered the morning of July 5, reports Rick Hannah, emergency services co-ordinator for Lanark County. At a residents’ meeting held at the Clayton Community Hall July 24, Hannah spoke to a large crowd of concerned people about the events surrounding the failure of the 911 system. On the morning of July 5, 70-year-old Carl Welk was doing volunteer yard work for Guthrie United Church when he suddenly collapsed. Beginning at 8:05 a.m., several calls were made to 911, but they never connected. Eventually, Merv Logan, a friend of Mississippi Mills fire chief Art Brown, managed to get through to the chief directly and explained what was going on. Help arrived about 15 to 20 minutes after Welk collapsed, but unfortunately, they were too late to save him. Members of the community were outraged and wanted answers. Hannah said he has been in contact with Bell Canada, which operates the 911 system, to determine what happened. Hannah relayed the information he had received from Bell during a conference call on July 23, although he admitted he was not an expert on the technical aspects of the system. He said that it was the Lanark County network card, which is operated by Bell, that ultimately failed, causing the 911 calls to go unanswered. Hannah explained that a network card is a device that sorts phone call requests and sends them to the appropriate destination. The card manages all phone calls made in the area and is not designated specifically for 911 calls. Therefore, any call made during the

failure that was supposed to pass through the network card would have also been unsuccessful. After a 911 call goes through the network card, it is passed on to the Central Emergency Reporting Bureau (CERB), which is the telephone answering service for emergency calls. Here, the CERB will ask what the emergency is and direct your call to the appropriate department: fire, ambulance or police. “The calls to the 911 system never reached the CERB,” said Hannah. “The calls never left Lanark County.” Hannah says that 25 per cent of the lines routed through that network card were affected, meaning that 75 per cent of the lines were working properly. “If more people had started calling,” said Hannah, “then someone would have eventually gotten through one of the functional lines.” Bell has a back-up system in place for this kind of emergency, said Hannah. If a call does not go through, or goes unanswered at CERB for more than 67 seconds, an alarm goes off, notifying one of two staff who are watching the system 24/7. An alarm for the unanswered 911 calls alerted Bell to a problem, which they started fixing at 8:07 a.m., says Hannah – two minutes after the first call went unanswered at 8:05 a.m. The problem was rectified and all lines were returned to working order by 8:20 a.m. The service interruption lasted 15 minutes.Hannah noted that Bell has assured him that this is the first network card failure it has had in all of southern Ontario since 911 services were implemented in the 1930s-1940s. Bell has indicated it is working on additional security measures to ensure these types of things do not happen, but in the meantime, Hannah said that people should not lose faith in the 911 system.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Arnprior District High School student Oliver Jacob Gardiner is asking local students to share their ideas with him in the lead-up to Renfrew County youth forum to be held early next year. Gardiner can take the opinions of local students directly to the provincial government, as he is a member of the provincial Minister of Educationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Student Advisory Council (MSAC). He is asking students and parents to fill out a survey to help set the agenda for the youth summit the Renfrew County Youth Group is going to be hosting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From my experience, I have come to realize that not only one perspective needs to be heard and that everybody has a different point of view to bring to the table,â&#x20AC;? explained Gardiner.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is why I am opening up this running discussion on your ideas about how the system can be bettered. He asks students and parent to post any ideas and/or concerns to the online survey, but asks they be â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean, school-appropriate and positive.â&#x20AC;? All feedback will be reviewed and studied, he promises. The survey link is http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NGMLJQN. Gardiner also welcomes questions, comments, concerns or ideas that can be emailed to him at msac_rcdsb5@ hotmail.com, by calling 613-6234796 or by contacting him on Facebook or Twitter. The MSAC is an advisory council of 63 students who come together twice a year to discuss the ideas and concerns of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students with the goal of helping make the education system in Ontario â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best in the world.â&#x20AC;? 0808.R0012246859

Liberals hold Ottawa South, lose three others Nevil Hunt nevil.hunt@metroland.com

Ottawa South is still Liberal red. Liberal John Fraser won the Aug. 1 byelection in Ottawa South, following in the footsteps of his former boss, Dalton McGuinty. That wasn’t the case in three of the four other byelections. Of the five Liberal seats up for grabs, only two remained red: Ottawa South and the Toronto-area riding of Scarborough-Guildwood, where Mitzie Hunter took the seat. The NDP picked up seats in Windsor and London, while the PCs won a seat in Toronto for the first time since 1999, as the city’s deputy mayor Doug Holyday, buoyed by support from Mayor Rob Ford, captured EtobicokeLakeshore. In Ottawa South, Fraser took 14,925 votes, defeating Progressive Conservative candidate Matt Young, who received 13,631 votes. The result was a surprise for anyone who followed

polls published in the week prior to the voting, as Young was predicted to win the byelection. The Conservatives pushed hard to capture the riding, with leader Tim Hudak visiting four times and Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski campaigning hard for Young. “I guess it wasn’t a done deal after all,” Fraser said to the raucous crowd at his victory party. Fraser, who worked as McGuinty’s constituency assistant for 14 years, gave credit to the former premier. “If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t be standing here today,” he said. “I have pretty big shoes to fill.” Fraser didn’t distance himself from McGuinty’s record during the campaign despite a number of scandals in the last year of McGuinty’s leadership. He said he learned what voters wanted by knocking on doors during the campaign and suggested Ottawa South residents are more concerned about education, health care and job opportunities than scandals at Queen’s Park. “They want stronger schools, stronger hos-

pitals and better care for our parents, and jobs for our young people,” Fraser said. Fraser benefited from the campaign organization the Liberals have built in the riding; a team that saw Dalton McGuinty and his father hold the provincial seat for 26 years. LESSONS TAKEN

The four other Aug. 1 byelections in Ontario – all former Liberal ridings – saw the Liberals drop three seats, two to the NDP and one to the Conservatives. Ottawa West-Nepean MPP and Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli, who joined the victory crowd at Kelsey’s, said the result in Ottawa South showed voters are more interested in issues close to home than scandals such as the gas plant cancellation in southern Ontario. “I did a lot of door-to-door (canvassing) in the riding and I’m not surprised at the outcome,” Chiarelli said. “The Conservatives were not talking about education, health care or the budget, and that’s not enough to get elected.”

Chiarelli said “the biggest loser” of the night was PC leader Tim Hudak. “He expressed such high expectations (for the five byelections) and his party has come in last place. He has failed to communicate any sincere compassion for the people of Ontario. “A lot of people in the PC party were concerned about his leadership before the byelections and this is not going to help his cause.” Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi said byelections are “always difficult for governments.” “It’s hard to read anything into this,” Naqvi said of the five byelections. He said Fraser was successful because he focused on employment, transit, roads, schools and hospitals. “Ontarians want a positive message about the future, not a slash and burn approach,” he said, referring to the PC campaign. Naqvi wouldn’t offer a prediction about Hudak’s future. “I’ll leave that to his party to decide,” he said. R0012236659

OVTA cites beaches in effort to draw tourists to Valley

JOHN CARTER/METROLAND

Robert Simpson Park is one of the few beaches in the Valley that is supervised by lifeguards. Emma Baird, left, and Rachel Chennette are among the lifeguards keeping people safe at the popular Arnprior beach from noon to 6 p.m. daily from late June to Aug. 30. Chennette is in her third year lifeguarding at the beach and Baird in her second. Both have just graduated from Arnprior District High School and are off to university this fall. Left, the Burnstown Beach on Calabogie Road just north of Burnstown is a great place to relax and dabble your feet in the water.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The beaches at Robert Simpson Park and Burnstown are two of five Ottawa Valley beaches being put in the spotlight in an effort by the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA) to attract tourists to the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Summer just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t summer without a visit to the beach â&#x20AC;Ś sand castles, picnics, sunbathers catching some rays and clean cool water inviting you dive right in,â&#x20AC;? says an OVTA news release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Luckily, for those living in or visiting the Ottawa Valley, there are plenty of beaches to choose from.â&#x20AC;? The OVTA points out that the Upper Ottawa Valley, with its over 900 lakes and four major river systems, boasts an abundant amount of clean, welcoming water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beaches offer plenty of affordable recreation opportunities, from swimming to friendly sand castle competitions and beach volleyball. Additionally, almost all of the beaches in the Ottawa Valley are great paddling start off places.â&#x20AC;? Chances are youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never more than a half-hour drive to a beach when in the Valley, says the OVTA, putting the spotlight on five of its â&#x20AC;&#x153;favourites.â&#x20AC;? Robert Simpson Park The clean, sandy beach is well maintained by the town and, during the summer is supervised daily from noon to 6 p.m. by lifeguards. Also at the park are a playground, splash pad, band-shell, fountain, washrooms and canteen. Nearby are walking trails that follow the Madawaska River. Burnstown Beach The beautiful beach is situated on Calabogie Road along the Madawaska River in McNab-Braeside. Burnstown Beach is newly upgraded and offers visitors a large sandy beach, boat launch and rowing area. On shore, there is a play structure, picnic tables, a canteen, change rooms, washrooms and a shaded grass area. Lake Clear Beach The beach near Eganville is well known for its crystal clear water. The sand on the beach, about 12 by 60 meters, is white and fine, perfect for sandcastles. The smooth lake

R0092148199

bed drop-off is gradual and leads to deep, refreshing water. There are no lifeguards on duty at the beach, but there are toilets available for the public. While there, keep a look out for peregrine falcons. Black Bear Beach Located on the military base in Petawawa but open to the public, the beach is a large, white sandy beach along the Ottawa River. The beach has both roped and non-roped areas and is monitored by a lifeguard. There are two volleyball courts, a canteen, picnic tables, public washrooms and other sporting equipment available to rent. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised if you see wind-surfers or boaters also enjoying the water. But no fear, this beach is large enough and the river is wide enough to accommodate everybody. Pine Point The beach in Deep River along the Ottawa River boasts over 200 meters of white, sandy shoreline. The river bed gradually drops off for 100 meters followed by an abrupt drop. The beach is unsupervised. While visiting Pine Point, keep your eyes peeled for bald eagles. The beach is surrounded by majestic mixed forest with a number of walking trails perfect for a casual afternoon stroll. FIND A BEACH

People can find the perfect beach no matter where they are in the Ottawa Valley with the help of the Waterkeeper Swim Guide Project. Swim Guide was created by the Lake Ontario Waterkeeper and not only helps people find the closest beaches, but also lets them know at a glance what beaches are safe for swimming. The Swim Guide is supported by Waterkeepers across Canada and the U.S. Locally, the Ottawa River Keeper and the OTVA are providing up-to-date photos and information on the beach services, water levels and water quality. Visit www.theswimguide.org or download the Swim Guide app from the iTunes store or to an android to check out the closest beaches.

Mother’s war on houseflies was on for another year Lifestyle - This time of year, Mother engaged in a never-ending battle with the housefly. She thought every fly on earth was put there to carry germs and contaminate whatever surface it happened to land on. Many of our neighbours hung strips of sticky stuff from their ceilings, but Mother would have no part of them. No siree! Most of these strips were hung over the kitchen tables, since that seemed to be where the flies accumulated, and if one fly ever had the misfortune of falling off and landing on the oil cloth, or heaven forbid, a piece of food, the entire table would have to be cleared, scoured, and whatever food it neared, scraped into Sport’s dog dish at the back door! And so, the strips were never used in our kitchen! Every summer Father hauled the screen door from the drive shed where it had been stored over winter, and he hung it with a tight spring attached. In fact, the spring, on Mother’s insistence, was so taut that if you weren’t quick enough getting into the house, you could lose a leg, or be maimed for life. That was just another way of making sure a stray fly didn’t get in with us. There was never enough money to buy fly swatters, and Mother insisted we each have one. So they were homemade. Fashioned out of narrow slats of wood, with layers of green cheese cloth, or sometimes, very fine screening attached on the end be-

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

tween more small slats, the swatters worked just fine. They were stationed on the bench at the back door, and each of us was commanded to have ours at the ready, just in case a fly managed to enter the house while we came in through the screen door. In the summer time, any food on the bake table, prepared for our next meal, was covered with spanking clean flour bag tea towels. And when the bowls were moved over to the kitchen table, the towels stayed put. It was like a mystery trying to decide which mound of white held the meat, potatoes or vegetables. Father thought Mother went too far when it came to the common housefly. He insisted the Haneman family had managed to survive in spite of them for generations! Mother said, “And that’s a miracle in itself.” She pointed out to Father all he had to do was go out to the cow byre and see the swarms of flies covering the cows’ backsides and the manure. He would know what, if flies were allowed inside, were brought into the house ... right into

the kitchen, where the very food we were putting in our mouths was there for the taking! At least once a week Mother had what we called her murderous attack on the common housefly. It didn’t matter how careful we were, how quickly we slammed the screen door, how diligent we were with the swatters, the flies always managed to come into the house. And when Mother couldn’t stand it any longer, she would announce at the breakfast table that this was the day! She would cast her eyes around the kitchen, and we wouldn’t even have to ask her just what day that would be. We knew, without a doubt, it was the day Mother would be attacking the flies that managed, in spite of our best efforts to keep them out, got into the house. That meant no one, not even if the house was on fire, was allowed inside until Mother was finished with what my sister Audrey called “her murderous attack.” There was a big tin can of fly tox in the summer kitchen, and on the shelf was a contraption that had a container at one end, and a handle and cylinder at the other. Mother filled the can to capacity, put a white towel around her head, went into the kitchen slamming the doors behind her, and the attack began. I would often look in the kitchen window from my post outside, and there would be Mother furiously pumping the handle into the cylinder and pouring out what would be a burst

of fog-like spray that hung in the air like gossamer curtains. I have no idea how Mother didn’t choke to death! As soon as she thought she had sprayed enough fly tox into the cavity of the kitchen, she would come out onto the back stoop, gasping for breath, the perspiration pouring down her face like falling rain, and a look of complete satisfaction on her beet-red face. Then she would collapse into the twig chair, still with the spray can in her hand, and fan her face with the tail of her apron. We had to wait for ages before anyone was allowed back in the kitchen, and when we were, the grand clean-up began. The newspapers would be taken off the cooled Findlay Oval, rolled up and crammed into its fire box, Audrey would get the broom, and I stood at the ready with the dust pan, and the sweep-up began. The flies didn’t have a chance. Audrey would sweep up the dead bodies; I would take the dustpan to the stove, amazed at how many had fallen under Mother’s attack. Mother would light a match to the papers in the stove after piling on a couple sticks from the wood box, and soon the Findlay Oval would be raging. The smell of the fly tox hung in the air for hours, but that didn’t seem to bother Mother in the least. The deed was done for a short spell. But alas, the never-ending battle against the housefly continued until the frost hit the farm at the end of the summer.

More than 200 seniors attend Seniors at Home summer picnic Deborah Miller Seniors at Home

Lifestyle – We had an awesome day at Robert Simpson Park for our 14th annual Seniors ‘Picnic in the Park’. As many as 260 seniors came out to enjoy the wonderful weather, great entertainment by Barry Martin & Country Favorites, and a tasty lunch of M&M burgers, buns by Giant Tiger, a pop (from Giant Tiger), a LIZ WALL/DEBORAH MILLER/SUBMITTED

The 14th annual Seniors Picnic Barbecue hosted by the Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home Program (ABMSHP) was held July 18 under sunny skies. Success of the event, as evidenced by the large numbers who turned out, is attributed to Mother Nature and the help of many volunteers.

sundae from Tracey’s, and local fries from Brian’s Spuds, Missy’s, Betty’s and Wes’. Celebrating with us was Jay Taylor for his 85th birthday and Boyd and Rose Ann MacLaren for their 49th anniversary. Gordon Obst won the 50/50. Thank you to all the businesses who helped us put this on, for without you it wouldn’t be possible and most of all to each senior who came out, and made it great. Hope to see you all next year.

Calabogie Peaks gearing up for 2013 Blues and Ribfest Lucy Hass lucy.hass@metroland.com

Arts - Calabogie Peaks has got the blues. And the ribs. And the camping. Even the ďŹ reworks. Oh, yes, and Canadian blues legend and superstar Colin James. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pleased to host Colin James and all the other talented blues artists for 2013,â&#x20AC;? Calabogie Peaks president Paul Murphy said when the line-up was ďŹ rst announced back in the spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We promised that as the festival grows we would continue to bring top Canadian and international performers to the venue and Colin James truly sets the standard,â&#x20AC;? he said. Title sponsor Class Axe Guitars and 101.9 DAWG FM presents the third annual Calabogie Blues and Ribfest Aug. 16 to 18. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an event that, in its young life, has already earned a faithful following of music fans and barbecue foodies. Ribbers from across Canada and the United states will once again compete for coveted prizes for best ribs and chicken. The gates open at 2 p.m. Friday and the musical lineup kicks off Friday with Firebelly (5 p.m.), followed by Paul Reddick (7 p.m.) and Johnny Winters (9 p.m.). Featured in Rolling Stone magazine in 1968, Winters has been nominated for several Grammys. The Saturday lineup includes Three Times Lucky (1 p.m.), Ben Racine (2 p.m.), Soulstack (4 p.m.) and Steve Hill (7 p.m.). Hill was proclaimed by Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Real Blues magazine as the best young blues guitar player in North America. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup wraps up with Juno awardR0012225763

winning Colin James who boasts multiple number one hits. He has toured with Keith Richards and his music reached #3 on American radio charts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Colin James takes the festival to a new level,â&#x20AC;? says festival artistic director Yves Trottier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the release of his new album Twenty Five Live, his ďŹ rst ever live album, Colin showcases the best of his original songs and great covers of artists like Van Morrison, Toots and the Maytals and much more.â&#x20AC;? James hits the stage at 9 p.m. Saturday night also features a ďŹ reworks show that organizers note was a real fan favourite last year. The festival closes Sunday with Peter Karp and Sue Foley (noon), followed by Maple Blues award winner Suzie Vinnick (2 p.m.), Joe Murphy (4 p.m.) and Carson Downey (6 p.m.). The Carson Downey Band has earned dozens of awards, toured all of Canada as wall as in Germany, Greenland and parts of the United States. Guitar and harmonica workshops are planned for Saturday and Sunday, building on the success of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lessons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Festival-goers are encouraged to bring their instruments and have a sit-down lesson with some of the artists who will be playing the event,â&#x20AC;? says a July 18 festival news release. Children can enjoy with their own guitar lesson with Maria Hawkins Saturday at 1:30 p.m., with the adult lesson at 3 p.m. with Hill. A harmonica workshop with Joe Murphy is set for 1 p.m. Sunday, followed by a blues music workshop at 2:20 p.m., hosted by Karp and Foley. Class Axe Guitars will be on site with guitars available for purchase.

Mountainside camping will be available. Pop-up tent trailers, RVs and tents are all welcome and must be booked ahead of time. The base mountain ski lodge will be open for all guests and includes a cafeteria and indoor washrooms. Attractions aside from the blues acts include an interactive kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; zone sponsored by the Pembroke Mall, a beer garden, vendorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; area, chairlift rides and more. Greater Madawaska council was awarded a

grant from the Government of Ontario through its Ministry of Tourism Celebrate Ontario Program for the third annual event. The funds helped to secure the top-notch musical lineup for the 2013 festival. About 13,000 people attended last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival.

ARNPRIOR'S HISTORIC THEATRE

Entertainment - Just before their school year ended, students from Pakenham Public School helped promote this coming weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Puppets Up! festival by doing a Harlem Shake. A video, produced by House Edge Media, was created featuring performances by the students with puppets they created. After receiving funding from the Young Awards, a project that supports educational arts initiatives, the school put together a puppet project.

Jeff Banks of JB Arts and Noreen Young came in to work with all the grades, and all students were able to create a puppet. Principal Paul LeRoy was excited to engage his students in both the puppet project and the Harlem Shake, and the students themselves were delighted to participate. In addition to the talented student performers, Liam the Celtfest mascot, Gloria Gopher and Jacob Bluejay from Under The Umbrella Tree, and Puppets Up!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own mascot Nick all did the Harlem Shake.

You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side.

You gave us many things in life, Gifts both great and small But most of all you gave us love The greatest gift of all. It isn’t what we write, It isn’t what we say It’s how we feel deep inside As we think of you today.

We hold you close within our hearts And there you will remain To walk with us throughout our lives Until we meet again.

In loving memory of a dear sister who passed away Aug. 7, 2009. It’s been 4 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.

Local musician to launch CD this Friday Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

Entertainment - Decades of hard work, dedication, raw talent and practice has culminated in the creation of Valley Heritage Radio volunteer Rick Leben’s first album. His languid deep voice and the alluring instrumental that accompanies it can be found on his CD, entitled Good Ol’ Country. Leben will be holding an official release party to celebrate this achievement at 7 p.m. this Friday, Aug. 9 at the Huntley Community Association Mess Hall in Carp. “There will be live music,” said the 60-yearold. “I have a bunch of musician friends that are coming and they will be performing. I’ll sing some of my songs as well. We’ll have the CD playing. It’s just a celebration and a chance for folks to hear it and come and pick up a copy.” The CD was originally created to help promote himself at the Shawville Country Jamboree, but his interest in launching an album quickly grew. “The biggest surprise I got from making the whole thing is that it is very, very different singing standing up without a guitar,” said Leben. “I guess a guitar for me is like a teddy bear or a comfort. “I’m not hiding behind it, but I feel more balanced if I have it,” he added. He also learned the difference between singing at a gig and recording an album. Mainly that the large earphones acted as a sound proofing barrier so he couldn’t properly hear his own voice. After a few bad takes, he learned to pop one earphone off in order to identify the proper notes and ensure that he hit them. Creating the album took a total of about six months. “The biggest process was trying to figure out what tunes to put on the CD,” said Leben. “Out of all the millions and millions and millions of tunes out there, how do you narrow it down to a few?” “It’s just hit and miss and try,” he added. “Once I got the names of the tunes I wanted, I had to figure out what key it worked best, whether or not I needed a band to do this. I do all of the music in the CD, except for two songs.” The end result was worth the wait. “The first time I heard it on the radio, it flipped me,” said Leben. “It just made me so happy to hear … the song I recorded on the

People started calling me, my aunts and uncles, ‘I heard you on the radio!’ “I volunteer at the radio station (Valley Heritage) and they have been very, very supportive,” he added. So entranced by the euphoria he was feeling that he drove past the radio station directly into Renfrew. YEARS OF TALENT

Leben has been banging away on the piano for the past 50 years and has been playing guitar for nearly as long. He switches between instruments according to the mood of the song. His musical style also varies from country to rock to easy listening to pop to everything in between. “That’s why I can play at restaurants or I can play behind a band or I can play it (anywhere), it doesn’t matter,” said Leben. “If I can hear the tune in my head, I can play it.” He first started playing in the basement of his church, teaching himself the notes, inspired by the gospel music that constantly surrounded him as he grew up. “Going back to my grandmother, she was on the farm and she would always be in the kitchen cooking or baking or whatever for the crowds that would come, trashing gangs and etc.,” said Leben. “She would always be humming and whis-

tling gospel tunes, old hymns. My mother did the same thing. She would whistle and sing old hymns around the house.” Turning his childhood hobby into a profession came naturally. In the past month only, he has played about 26 various gigs around the area. “I just love music and I especially love making music,” said Leben. “Especially playing in retirement homes … folks, if you are playing the right tune, man you can make their day. They cry when you hit the right notes. It’s great.” Despite his talent with instruments, he remains completely illiterate to sheet music. Instead, he relies on what he hears in his mind, perfectly reproducing a tune by ear.

“It’s not that complicated,” he said. “To me if the music is in your head, it’s ok. you can figure it out. If you can’t hear the tune in your head, you can’t play be ear.” “I may not know the name, I may not know the words, but I know the tune,” he added. This rare talent is in his blood. He is one of several fair head boys in his family that have the gift of learning by ear. For each generation, there is a single musically inclined young boy. “In my grandfather’s family, there was one fair hair boy that played music,” said Leben. “In my mother’s family, there was one fair hair boy that plays music and that was me and there is another generation in there as well. And in my family, we have one child and he is a boy, fair hair and he plays music. There is something in there.” He has passed on this passion to his son Matt by teaching him the cords and letting him pick up the rest on his own. The younger Leben prefers heavy metal and rock, but the father and son combo can always find a happy medium when jamming together. His entire family has been fully supportive of Leben’s musical career, but his biggest fan is undoubtedly his aunt Margaret Wickens. She has been there since he was a child, pushing him into furthering himself in the music industry, demanding that he releases a CD and helping to promote him.’ “She is a force to be reckoned with,” he said. “She is just a cracker.” He just started putting his CD in stores and the easiest way of getting one is contacting Leben directly at lebenrick@gmail.com or at 613-832-1940 or going to the Valley Heritage Radio at 3009 Burnstown Rd. between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
