EMC news – When people attend the Arnprior Fair this week, they will be supporting the efforts of the hard-working volunteers of the Arnprior Agricultural Society. But there’s more. They will also be offering encouragement and financial support to drought-stricken farmers around the area. The fair board’s decision last week to donate 50 per cent of the net profit from the Arnprior Fair to help local farmers and cattlemen has been receiving praise and gratitude from the farmers and community at large. It’s a highly appropriate gesture, given the agricultural roots of the fair, which continues to have a significant farming aspect even today. Fair board members are hoping the enthusiasm being expressed for their generous offer will translate into large crowds at the 158th annual fair, which opens today (Thursday) and runs through Sunday, Aug. 12.

Don’t forget to take in the exhibits at the Arnprior Fair, urges the group of fair board volunteers and Women’s Institute members setting up the exhibit hall Tuesday. In front are Madison Toner, Diane Swaine and Treena Toner and behind, from left are Amy Neill, Jane Maisonneuve, Anita Schubrink and Carole Campbell.

Veteran demolition derby racer Scott Rancourt, next to wife Chantal, will smash ’em up at the Arnprior this weekend with a relatively new sponsor. This is year two for Alex Parker and other lawyers at Tierney Stauffer to show their support for Rancourt and the derby. Driving a 1985 Chev Impala for his 30th year in the business, Rancourt said everyone will enjoy the Saturday, Aug. 11 competition at 5 p.m. at the Arnprior Fair. “It’s good family fun to see cars crashing, in my opinion,” he said. Below, workers set up the rides Tuesday evening at the fairgrounds.

Community invited to join effort to help farmers Continued from front

Other Sunday attractions at the fair include the free breakfast, the Strongman competition and discounted Midway rides. Arnprior Agricultural Society members have expressed delight in the expressions of support after the announcement to donate to farmers was made July 25.

In its statement, the society said it is “conscious of the effect the farmers’ plight will have on the families of our communities and want to assist in this trying time.” The society also asked its fair partners to consider adding to the contribution by increasing donations or lowering charges for contracted services. “While we also understand the effect

the economy is having on all businesses, we are also asking that you take a look at the long-term effect the drought and farmers’ plight will have on us all; not just business, but your home and family,” said an appeal authored by society treasurer Cathie Tennisco. “All contributions are appreciated.” For more details on the fair, visit www.arnpriorfair.ca.

Antique appraisers to enliven Victorian tea John Carter

Ottawa Region including the Ottawa Valley. The three appraisers donate their time at various fundraisers in the Ottawa Region. They enjoy helping with appraisals that may otherwise be too expensive for many folks who simply want to know what a family heirloom is worth. The appraisers enjoy helping out good causes (especially those that are historically focused) such as the accessibility upgrades for the Waba Cottage “because it connects everyone - old, young, able and physically challenged - to our most important resource, our heritage,” say tea organizers.

John.carter@metroland.com

EMC events – The annual Victorian Tea at the Waba Cottage Museum and Gardens this Saturday, Aug. 11 has an intriguing new twist this year. The tea is coming with a ‘What’s it Worth Appraisal Day’. At the elegant tea, which runs from 12:30 to 3 p.m. at the museum in White Lake, will be three top antique appraisers. People can bring their treasures, or photographs of them if they’re too large, and find out what they’re worth. Cost of the tea is $5, as is the price of each appraisal. All proceeds will go to handicapped accessibility project at the museum. Among the appraisers on hand will be Canadian Antiques Roadshow military expert appraiser Ross M. Wilson. He invites people to bring in their family medals, swords and war-time memorabilia for him to evaluate. Wilson has spent most of his life as a military antiquarian. This included 11 years with the Canadian War Museum as the Curator of Dress and Insignia and a decade as a historic sites curator with Parks Canada. Submitted

SPECIALTIES

His extensive knowledge of arms and militaria includes medals and decorations, uniforms and accouterments, particular those of the 18th and 19th century. And although his specialties include British and Canadian medals, swords and flintlock and percussion firearms, he has a discerning eye for military ephemera from all periods. As an independent appraiser and consultant, Wilson has provided services to individuals and institutions, including the Canadiana Fund, Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Canadian War Museum. He is a Fellow of the Company of Military

TEA TIME

This photograph of a regular visitor to the Waba Museum and Gardens was snapped by Julie Trudeau, a summer student at the White Lake attraction. Historians, a member of the Orders and Medals Research Society and the Naval Historical Collectors and Research Association. For more information about his skills, visit http://rmawappraisals. com. Mike Cleary from Cleary Construction will be at the tea to help appraise antique furniture. He is a former importer and dealer of fine English antique furnishings. HelpDownsizing.Com appraiser Kim Murray will value china, glass and decorative objects.

HelpDownsizing.com was created as a direct result of Murray’s personal downsizing and moving dilemma. She experienced first-hand the stresses associated with sorting through decades of memories and the pain involved with letting it all go. In 2006, the avid collector found herself on the other side of the ‘Too Much Stuff’ coin and transitioned herself from store owner (buying estates for resale) to her current role as personal property appraiser and senior move specialist.

The afternoon tea will be served under shaded canopies by ladies and gentlemen in Victorian costume. Visitors will be seated at tables for four and will sip smooth golden tea from antique bone china tea cups, as well as enjoy sandwiches and homemade sweets. The tea will also feature live piano music. Guests are encouraged to wear their best going-out hats, as the hat judged to be best will win a prize at the end of the tea. While at the tea, visitors can tour the eight acres on the lake featuring 11 gardens and five historic buildings. Waba Cottage is a facsimile of the original building which stood there from 1835 to 1936. It was built by community volunteers as a 1967 Centennial project. The log church, farm and schoolhouse are original log buildings that have been moved onto the site. The 11 gardens were designed and created for the 2000 Millennium. Other facilities include washrooms, handicapped access (which is being upgraded), free parking, boat launch and picnic area. As well, the gardens can be booked for weddings or wedding photography.

Ontario Works employees return to work expected after county approves deal John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news –Ontario Works staff in Renfrew County are expected to be back on the job as early as today (Thursday). Renfrew County council, as confirmed to workers last Friday, held a special meeting Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 10:30 a.m. to vote on the agreement. After council approved the agreement, discussions began in the afternoon on a back-towork protocol. The moves come more than two weeks after the union accepted the deal. The workers, members of Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 4989, are unhappy it took so long. “The County of Renfrew was in a rush to hire replacement workers and suddenly there is no rush to restore services,” said CUPE National Representative Amy Parker in a news release last week. To emphasize their discontent and try to force the issue, the union sent Renfrew County CAO Jim Hutton and all County councillors a letter last week demanding immediate action to get the 22 employees back to work as soon as possible. The letter said that if the strike were to drag on beyond next week, County officials would be intentionally delaying the return to work and be acting in “bad faith.” The document was personally hand-delivered to the parties involved and a response was requested no later than Friday, Aug. 3 at 1 p.m.

CUPE Communications representative Marjorie Savoie said the county responded before the deadline, saying that while the next regularly scheduled County council meeting isn’t until Aug. 29, a special meeting would be held Aug. 8. It is difficult to get the county councillors together in the summer, but the union was told there will be enough of them available Aug. 8 to hold the meeting. Earlier, CUPE was told the meeting would have to be delayed if a quorum wasn’t available. The union was also reassured that county staff is recommending councillors approve the deal. Savoie said it is unfortunate that the county didn’t negotiate a back-to-work protocol right after the union approved the agreement on July 24, so the workers could have gone back to work right away on the understanding that council had to approve the deal. She said she expects a quick resumption of work once the deal is approved. “There will be no delays from our side … our members have been ready to go back to work since July 24,” she said. “CUPE 4989 members are eager to get back to work and help those that rely on them, agreed Parker. “If Renfrew County really believes that these services are a priority for the community as they have claimed during this dispute, services will be restored next week.” The workers, who work with about 1,100 clients, have been off the job since May 10.

PAINTED FACE FOR BROOKLYYND

John Carter

Herbfest face-painter Brittany McCullough creates one of her masterpieces for Brooklyynd Denty of White Lake. Young Brooklyynd and her mother Tracy were among close to 3,000 people attending the annual Herbfest July 29 at the Herb Garden just off Dwyer Hill Road east of Arnprior. Brooklyynd’s many supporters would have been pleased to see her enjoying the many attractions at the Herbfest, as it was only a couple of years ago that it was touch and go for the girl, then two and a half, who was fighting a cancerous brain tumour. Friends and family held a major benefit for her in September 2010 to help the family with expenses when they “practically lived at CHEO” where Brooklyynd received extensive treatments. The White Lake Marina, the White Lake General Store and several Arnprior business provided support for the cause. Tracy reports that Brooklyynd is doing “just fine now,” music to the ears of all of her well-wishers.

Many unsung heroes applauded for helping their neighbours in aftermath of storm Patricia Lonergan

patricia.lonergan@metroland.com

EMC news - While clean-up after the July 24 storm that wreaked havoc in a strip southwest of Arnprior from Lake Dore to White Lake will take months, if not longer, there are still stories of hope and inspiration that came out of the disaster. Greater Madawaska emergency recovery co-ordinator Jim Lynch said he has heard many stories of neighbours helping neighbours. Within days roads in the Calabogie, Norway Lake

and White Lake areas were open or at least passable, and there was no loss of life. Volunteers did their best to go door-to-door, he said, although it was impossible to reach out to everyone, they did the best they could. Some volunteers even took boats around lakes because the roads were impassable. Some of those volunteers couldn’t get the boat to shore due to debris, so they instead swam in to ensure people were safe

in their cottages. Meanwhile, Hydro crews and other linesmen worked tirelessly to restore service. Hydro One brought in crews from out of the area and are using helicopters to fly in telephone poles and transformers into areas that are still blocked by fallen trees. For more on the aftermath of the storm, see the story on Pages 14 and 15.

Well-known musician dies John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; One of the giants in the Renfrew County music scene has died. Jimmy Mayhew passed away on July 31 at the Pembroke Regional Hospital. He played for many years with the Mac Beattieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renowned Ottawa Valley Melodiers. He also entertained at many concerts throughout the Valley and was a regular favourite at musical gatherings in Burnstown. He was born in Renfrew and grew up on a farm in Hor-

to sign a waiver form. Darrel also mentioned the likelihood of the club forming a youth team for next year. However, he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say if

the team is ready to take on the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veteran dragon boat team: the Prior Chest Nuts. The team in pink raises funds for breast cancer research and

ton. His last years were spent in Pembroke, where he was organist for Holy Trinity Anglican Church. Meanwhile, a well-known member of the AdmastonBromley community and former township councillor, Sandra Crozier, passed away Aug. 3 at the age of 69 after a battle with cancer, Crozier severed on council for two terms, following in the footsteps of her husband, Cecil, a former deputy reeve of Admaston. For more on both Mayhew and Crozier, see the obituary section of the classifieds.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Renfrew County was spared accidental deaths on the long weekend, but preliminary statistics indicate five people died on roads and waterways patrolled by the OPP. Throughout the weekend, the OPP ramped up enforcement right across the province, focusing on aggressive driving, driving while impaired, the wearing of seatbelts and driving while distracted. OPP officers were also highly visible patrolling waterways and trails, targeting those who were not in compliance with marine and trail laws. Over the weekend, four persons were killed in three separate collisions, including an 80-year-old woman in the Perth area, and one person died in a marine incident.

The OPP laid numerous charges for various offences over the long weekend, including 6,559 for speeding, 96 street racing charges, 432 seatbelt charges, 131 charges for driving while impaired by drugs or having a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of above 0.08. As well, 174 distracted driving charges were laid. The OPP also issued 169 roadside license suspensions to drivers with a BAC in the warn range of 0.05 to 0.08. Sadly, the loss of life over the long weekend marks a 26 per cent increase in fatalities, bringing the number of deaths (within OPP jurisdiction) up to 211 compared to 168 this same time last year. With the extremely hot temperatures in Renfrew County this summer, many people are turning to swimming and

boating to cool off. However, swimming and boating come with some risks and everyone is encouraged to think about water safety while enjoying these activities, urge the OPP. WATER SAFETY

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Learn to swim, closely supervise children that are in or near the water, wear you lifejacket when boating, and avoiding alcohol while swimming or boating can save a life.â&#x20AC;? Police stress that drowning deaths are largely preventable if people follow those four simple safety precautions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Summer should be about vacations and enjoying a break from school and work, not about a tragic senseless death.â&#x20AC;?

A second dragon boat team, this one practicing out of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marina, has dipped into the water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energetic, enthusiastic and a teambuilding activity,â&#x20AC;? said Darrel Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Shaughnessy.

Ontario Works staff should have been back two weeks ago

R

enfrew County management and council were probably cheesed off at its Ontario Works employees for going out on strike, but the way they kept them off the job for an extra 16 days is punitive and petty. You would have thought county officials would have been relieved that after twoand-a-half months off the job, the workers finally, after one false start, agreed to a deal obviously acceptable to both sides. Relieved and anxious to

get them back to work as soon as possible, not disappointed they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hire replacement workers. Fortunately, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come to that, as bringing in replacements would likely have soured the work place atmosphere for years to come. As it is, the unwarranted delay isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to help mend the wounds caused by the labour dispute. Yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer holidays, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think County council would have been able to get back together for a short

session well before Aug. 8. And if it was indeed impossible, the county should have worked out an agreement where the employees went back with the understanding the deal still had to be approved by County council. That would have been unwise if council was split over the wisdom of the deal. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to be the case. There doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be any doubt the deal will be ratified. If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so, instead of further punishing the workers,

the county should have got them back on the job pronto. A quick return to work would have boosted morale and served the public better. After all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the front-line workers who should know who really needs Ontario Works assistance and who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. NATURE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; THE GREAT EQUALIZER

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing like hard times to bring politicians out of the woodwork. The drought has clearly

brought people together. It has also shown us how quickly the political machinery is ready to cash in on the misery. One day before Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Minister of Agriculture visited the area to view the drought damage, the opposition couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move fast enough to organize and say what they would do if they were in power. Every political party plays this game, with opposition always holding the trump card. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very easy to promise the moon and the stars when

youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not, as they say, beholdinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Tragedy, on the other hand, also brings out the very best in common folk. There are countless tales of friends and neighbours volunteering to lend a hand, to clean up and support another in need. The weather challenges show how very equal we are in the face of Mother Nature. Your wallet canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy you out of the path of a storm. The rain, as they say, falls on all of us.

Letters

Leaving waste around could lead to another plague To the editor: A couple of weeks back, I wrote a letter critical of people not picking up after their pets. Well, guess what Co-co and I are finding now in the course of our daily walks? Poopy sacs (fully loaded) strewn about the neighbourhood. Some are artfully concealed behind the nearest bush as if inviting a kind of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;treasure huntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mon folks, finish the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;jobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for poochie. Please take those little bags of mystery home and dispose of them properly. If we fail to deal with waste materials adequately, we can be in big trouble. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a worst-case scenario relating to food wastes alone. Rats, a companion to our species since time immemorial, are very much with us still. In fact, they appear to be on the increase. They are carriers of a terrible, often fatal disease variously known as the bubonic

plague, aka the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;black deathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The organism that transmits the contagion from rat to man is a type of flea. Infected people suffer terribly and all too often are dead in three or four days. Repeatedly, throughout history, there have been calamitous outbreaks of the plague, a true pandemic, killing millions of people. A serious epidemic in the 14th century spread throughout the world. In England it killed an estimated third of the population. It took us another 500 years to figure out the cause of the disease, its link to the rat population and their ability to thrive in poor sanitary conditions. Only then did we begin to clean up the areas in which we live. Could we still have outbreaks of the plague? Why not? The rats are still with us, as well as the flea and the organism that makes us ill. Ted Graham Arnprior

Gallant turns her back on science To the editor: Last month scientists from all across Canada held a funeral march on Parliament Hill for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;death of evidence.â&#x20AC;? They were protesting how MP Cheryl Gallant and her Conservative government are ignoring evidence in policymaking, cutting off funding to vital research and preventing government scientists from presenting evidence to the public. This normally reserved group was moved to noisy protest by a set of decisions of the

Conservative government that shows disregard for the hard work that our scientists do to generate knowledge for the benefit of Canadians. The Conservatives are eliminating the Experimental Lakes Area, which we have used for 40 years to protect us from poisons in our water. They killed the mandatory long form census, depriving us of a clear picture and understanding of the circumstances that Canadians face in their daily lives. Scores of federal scientists will no longer be monitoring

and reporting to us about the environment that our children and grandchildren will have to live in. I believe that to make good decisions you need good data. Yet Mrs. Gallant and the Conservatives are eroding that data, bit by bit. It leaves our government flying blind - and dangerously illequipped to protect the health and safety of Canadians.

Are you cutting back on your water consumption in response to the drought as suggested by government officials? A) Yes. itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to be a good citizen and sacrifice for the greater good in this unusually dry summer.

82%

B) No. The problem has been exaggerated. There is plenty of water in local rivers and properly dug wells.

Has our interest in the Olympics become too focused on medal-winners and not enough on the efforts of all the athletes? A) No. We should be focused on the medal-winners. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong with promoting excellence. B) Yes. There are some wonderful stories being ignored because the athletes arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t involved in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sexyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; events or from the high profile countries.

C) Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to conserve more water, but because of the fire hazard itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more important to keep grass and shrubs green.

What makes good and bad leaders? To the editor: Every four years there is a new election. All leaders travel to their constituencies and pound on doors. Although we have freedom of speech, as well as freedom of writing, there are times when politicians should count to 25 before they speak. There are seven missteps of selfish leadership. 1. Schmoozing: one who chats up people to persuade them or gain favour (Mr. McGuinty, you’re a schmoozer). 2. Politics of violence: this doesn’t mean politics is necessarily violent, but can become violent. 3. Playing favourites: Self-explanatory. 4. Playing to personalities: judgments based on outward appearance or clever arguments. 5. Deception: human beings are given to deception. 6. Hypocrisy: feigning to be what one is not. 7. Hiding feelings. The Ontario premier fits all seven of the missteps. There are seven characteristics of a true leader. 1. True leadership begins with humility, the single key to divine knowledge. 2. True leaders love people and places from coast to coast (don’t play favourites). 3. True leaders are inclusive - if they see some who is shy or passive, they will bring them into a group. 4. True leaders serve others. 5. True leaders aren’t envious of others. 6. True leaders value and strive for good character - good character doesn’t come naturally. 7. True leaders emulate other great leaders - true leaders are made, not born. When it comes to voting, I think with my head and not my heart. I’ve been voting for 50 years, since when I turned 21 in 1962. I’m not ashamed that I voted Conservative federally and PC in the provincial election. McGuinty is taking this province to hell in a hand-basket. He has Ontario as far behind the eight-ball and it will be many years before this province can get its popularity back. Doug Yourt Arnprior

Farmers need assistance now, not in 45 days To the editor: The following letter was forwarded to the Gerry Ritz, federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, after the announcement made by the Ted McMeekin during his tour of Renfrew County last week. The executive of the Renfrew County National Farmers Union learned that McMeekin made an announcement on July 31 stating: “The Province of Ontario has officially requested aid from the Federal Government under the Agri-Recovery framework for disaster relief for farms in Eastern Ontario including Renfrew County.” We note in McMeekin’s announcement that Agri Recovery is used only in extreme cases to “top-up” shortfalls in existing aid. May we point out that existing programs, i.e. Agri Stability and other risk management programs, are geared to cover losses within abnormal weather fluctuations which can occur every five/six years. This present drought disaster is far beyond that: • farmers are using their winter hay reserves in July and will have to continue into late summer/fall; • farmers are stressed, livestock is stressed and pastures have completely depleted and water holes/wells are drying up; • hay prices due to a pending shortage are rising and in most cases farmers are short of cash to buy hay or to bring in feed from a distance; cattle

numbers at sale barns have increased and prices for cattle have dropped anywhere from 15 to 25 per cent, thus causing another shortfall for farmers; it is predicted that between 25-50 per cent of Renfrew County’s cattle numbers may be sold off due to the drought. This will deplete the good genetics farmers have built up over the years and leave farm incomes in jeopardy for the coming years; some crop farmers with forward contracts will have only 10 per cent of their crop. This drought is the worst drought in recorded history. Therefore, on behalf of all farmers in Renfrew County, we sincerely ask the Hon. Gerry Ritz to move on a decision in respect to approving funding for our farmers via the Agri Recovery Program as soon as possible. Farmers in dire need cannot wait the 45-day window allowed for his administration to come up with a decision on funding. This letter is also addressed to influential elected officials and/or department heads who may be able to assist in speeding up the funding approval process. The Renfrew County National Farmers Union, on behalf of its farmers, will be awaiting a reply at your earliest convenience. Dave Mackay, president Renfrew County National Farmers Union

While there is a new owner at Sears in the Arnprior Mall, there’s a familiar face behind the counter in Vi Cameron, who has been at the store for several years. Rounding out the Sears team, from left, are Dave Kropfel, Adam Dutfield and owner John Purdon.

Sears ‘here to stay’ in Arnprior: new owner EMC business – The new owner of the Sears store in the Arnprior Mall wants to assure everyone in and around Arnprior, that “Sears is here to stay.” John Purdon took over the store July 1. The Castleford resident, who worked in the hi-tech sector in Ottawa for several years, is delighted to be working closer to home and is certain his store has a bright future in town. Sears has expanded in size, taking over The Source area, and as a result has more appliances and electronics than ever before, Purdon said. “All our staff (Vi Cameron, Adam Dutfield and Dave Kropfel) are local people involved in

New services being offered by the Sears outlet are local delivery and local order acceptance. Local delivery also means that the store is more than willing to sell off the floor – “if you need it now and we have it, it’s yours,” explained Purdon. Local order acceptance is for those wanting to order from the catalog or www.sears.ca who are uncomfortable using the Internet or the Sears 800 number. “Just call the store and we can take care of it,” said Purdon.

SAFE DRIVING TIPS

Battery Check: Extreme temperatures will drain your battery; have your battery checked.

Change your coolant: Overheating is a major cause for vehicle breakdowns and coolant is one of the most important fluids in the vehicle because it maintains the temperature of the engine. Check your belts: Over time, serpentine/ drive belts crack and fray - it’s an item that should be replaced regularly. Ensuring the belt is in good working order will prevent unnecessary breakdowns. Oil Change: Oil breaks down over time and needs changing as it is vital to the health of your engine. Tires Pressure: Maintaining proper tire pressure will not only keep you safe by allowing proper braking capabilities, it will also ensure the vehicle is running with optimum fuel efficiency. Canadian Tire Roadside Assistance is a membership program providing emergency roadside assistance services with 24/7 coverage in Canada and the U.S with more than 100,000 tow trucks available.

Dry conditions not affecting whitewater adventures: rafting company EMC news - Despite dry weather in eastern Ontario, operators of OWL Rafting say the Ottawa River is experiencing normal summer water levels and there is plenty of whitewater rafting fun available for the whole family. “We have heard from some of our guests that people are shying away from enjoying whitewater rafting because they assume the water levels are too low due to the dry weather, but that’s certainly not the case,” says Kirsten

Trudeau, river operations manager at OWL Rafting. “Summer water levels actually bring out many exciting features normally submerged at higher flows. We want to assure the public that all of our facilities on the Ottawa and Madawaska rivers are in full operation, and visitors can enjoy the beauty and excitement with their friends and family.” For more on the issue, see Page 34.

EMC business – With more families taking road trips during the summer months, drivers can sometimes find themselves unexpectedly stranded on the side of the road. According to Canadian Tire Roadside Assistance, the most common reasons people break down during hot summer months can be easily avoided by having their car regularly serviced. On the August long weekend, Canadian Tire Roadside Assistance helped drivers travelling on public roadways in Ontario with a complimentary tow to the nearest Canadian Tire service station if their car broke down. From 6 a.m. Friday, Aug. 3 to 6 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, motorists that need assistance could receive a free tow to the nearest Canadian Tire Service Centre (including Arnprior’s), up to a maximum of 100 km.

Patricia Lonergan

The drought is affecting the health of forests in Renfrew County. The canopy in many places is at a mid-September levels, with 40 per cent of the trees ready to shed.

Cottagers exempt from provincial disaster relief program Patricia Lonergan

patricia.lonergan@metroland.com

EMC news - About half a dozen frustrated residents walked out of a public meeting in Calabogie Monday morning after learning the province’s disaster relief program does not apply to secondary residences – namely cottages. The public meeting, held at the Calabogie Community Centre on Aug. 6, was an opportunity for residents to get an update on recovery efforts following the July 23 storm

as well as information on the Ontario Disaster Relief Program. It became clear early in the meeting, however, that most of those in attendance are not eligible for the program’s private coverage. Only about 20 of the roughly 140 people at the meeting indicated they are permanent residents of the area. “The program does not cover damages related to cottages,” said Warren Sleeth, manager local government unit for the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “The objective of the program is to ensure people have

a roof over their head on a full-time basis,” and cottagers have the option of returning to their primary home. Sleeth said the provincial program only applies to primary residences, businesses, agriculture and non-profit groups when it comes to private coverage. Seasonal residents argued they pay taxes on their cottages, questioning why they are not covered. Sleeth said expenses related to removing debris, clearing roads and fixing recreation areas damaged by the storm still come under the program’s public

coverage. Mumbling that they shouldn’t be at the meeting, some cottagers chose to leave, although most stayed for the majority of the presentation. Tree removal on private roads was also of concern to many residents. The municipality has tried to help by extending hours at some of its waste facilities and waiving tipping fees, but as one resident noted, she cannot pick a tree up off her private road and haul it to the dump in her compact car. She called on the municipality to take a wood chipper down the roads

and deal with the problem. Sleeth said the province will work with the municipality when it comes to private roads. Greater Madawaska’s emergency recovery co-ordinator Jim Lynch said the township is trying to determine how to manage private roads and is seeking legal advice. “This is beyond the capacity of residents,” said Norway Lake resident Mark Gallivan, who lives on Smithson Lane, a private road.

Storm cut a swath up to 10 kilometres wide Continued from front

Gallivan expressed concern about ambulance and fire access along the road. He said the municipality is in the best position to co-ordinate this next phase of clean-up with Hydro One, which had to cut and even bulldoze down trees to get service back to customers. Gallivan asked council to waive the rules when it comes to private roads. “We need help now. This is a disaster.” In a later interview he said his request isn’t meant to be precedent-setting when it comes to servicing the many private roads in the area. He said he understands that private lands are a private responsibility, but in this case residents

need assistance. Lynch said he sympathizes, but there are regulations that limit what municipalities can do on private roads. Council is aware of the issue, he indicated, but must also await legal advice. MESSY STORM

The July 23 storm cut a five-to-10 kilometre swath from Eganville, exerting its fury in Greater Madawaska, according to Lynch. He said the storm was best described as a giant walking through the municipality, leaving destruction in its wake. Unlike a tornado, the macro burst left patches of destruction, Lynch said. The hardest hit areas were the

town of Calabogie, Norway Lake and areas along White Lake. Bell Canada had to rebuild the entire infrastructure around Norway Lake, running new lines, he said. Many cottage-owners in that section are from the Arnprior area. Aerial surveillance suggests 150,000 to 300,000 trees were uprooted or downed. Somewhere between 50-100 per cent of the damaged trees will fall over the next six months, whether by heavy windstorms or snow, Lynch said. “It’s not over,” he said, adding clean-up efforts will continue over the next six months to a year. The damage, meanwhile, is compounded by the stage 2 drought. There’s no moisture to bind the trees to the ground, Lynch explained. About 40 per cent of the canopy is ready to lose its leaves, something that doesn’t generally happen until mid-September. “The trees are shutting down,” Lynch said. The concern, going forward, is the fire load. Greater Madawaska fire chief Betsy Sayers said the fire ban is critical to the community.

“It’s never been as severe as this before,” she said. “We need to be extremely careful.” “This is a very messy storm,” added Lynch, comparing it to the Combermere tornado, which he referred to as a clean storm due to its clean edge and clear path. POCKETS OF DESTRUCTION

In contrast, Greater Madawaska faces pockets of destruction. Some areas are devastated, with trees flattened. “Here every different pocket needs a different solution,” Lynch said. The ice storm in 1998 took five years to clean up, he said. This storm took place in about 20 minutes to an hour and its effects will be here for years. The township has 14 working days from the storm to apply to the Ministry for declaration of a disaster. Residents are encouraged to get their Ontario Disaster Relief Program forms to the township by Friday, Aug. 10. They are also encouraged to send an email to Jim Lynch (stormrecovery@greatermadawaska.com) briefly indicating destruction in their area and the location.

NATURE

The stick that walks Michael Runtz Nature’s Way

EMC lifestyle – Nature offers us stimulation in so many ways. For one, there are stunningly beautiful animals and plants. Few can view a male Baltimore Oriole or a Showy Lady’s-slipper and not fill with admiration. Nature also inspires awe. A prime bull Moose, its antlers glowing orange as it swaggers through a misty autumn dawn, etches a permanent

memory. Nature also offers high drama, such as a flock of Mourning Doves exploding into motion in a desperate bid to escape the lethal talons of the Cooper’s Hawk that appeared out of nowhere. And then there is the curiosity that Nature inspires. She writes an unfinished saga replete with puzzles for us to solve, and mysterious characters to scrutinize.

The latter includes bizarrelooking creatures that we encounter from time to time. Recently I encountered two of these in my backyard. One was a Walking Stick, also commonly known as a Stick Insect. There is only one species of Walking Stick in Ontario – the Common Walking Stick. Even though it might be rather common, this oak leaf-eating insect is seldom

Mike Runtz

There’s only one species of Walking Stick in Ontario – the Common Walking Stick, shown here. seen because of its perfect masquerade. Its brown body is twig-like and its legs and antennae long and thin. Walking Sticks often hang motionless under branches, their antennae and front legs held straight out as if they were stems of leaves. The legs are green, which help add to the illusion of the animal being part of a plant. Even a Walking Stick’s motion adds to this deception; when one of these insects moves to a new location, it walks slowly and methodically, its body swaying oddly back and forth as if it were a twig being gently moved by a breeze. A Walking Stick’s life history is equally odd. Males, which are much smaller than females, bear a set of handcuffs on the end of their abdomen that remains clamped onto a female during their three-day copulation. The eggs, which are dropped onto leaf litter in oak woods, have a special edible cap that ants find irresistible. Those insects harvest the eggs and store and protect them in underground chambers where they eventually hatch. The other unusual insect I

met was a large, hard caterpillar walking on the ground. It was green and bore small white projections across its four-inch body over its breathing openings called spiracles. When it stopped it looked just like a new pinecone. That is likely for good reason; Imperial Moth caterpillars often live in pines, eating their needles. They leave the trees to pupate in the ground over the winter. A fallen pinecone, young and full of resin, would be unlikely to attract the interest of a squirrel or a bird. Thus, by looking like something inedible, an Imperial Moth caterpillar might gain sufficient time to bury itself in the ground. With all of Her intriguing curiosities, Nature offers limitless and inspiring stimulation. Children (and their parents) would be far happier and healthier if they were to experience this and spend less time robotically thumbtapping out meaningless messages on cell phones. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

Man fined for littering EMC news – An Alfred area man has been fined $1,000 for littering on Crown land. Justin Bronzan pleaded guilty to illegally depositing material on public lands. The court heard that a complaint was received on April 13 that litter had been placed on Crown land on the Barron Canyon Road in Laurentian Hills Township. The litter included cans and household garbage. A Ministry of Natural Resources conservation officer

from Pembroke District conducted an investigation and interviewed Bronzan, who admitted to depositing the litter. Justice of the Peace Barry Moran heard the case in, Pembroke on July 23. To report a natural resources violation, call 1-877-TIPSMNR (847-7667) toll-free any time or call the local ministry office during regular business hours. You can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1800-222-TIPS (8477).

Be on the lookout for Chimney Swifts EMC lifetystyle – Chimney Swifts are experiencing steep declines across their North American range. Bird Studies Canada and its partners are looking for volunteers to help search for nesting locations. The Chimney Swift is a small, sooty-coloured bird that makes its home in open brick chimneys. The State of Canada’s Birds report notes that aerial insectivores are declining more steeply than any other group of birds.

Over the next few weeks, keep an eye on the sky, and on chimneys. If you happen to see or hear swifts, especially near sundown, look for an open chimney (no cap) in the vicinity, and note the address. If you have time, wait and see whether any birds enter the chimney. If they do, please report it online at www.surveymonkey. com/s/OntarioSwiftWatch or email OntarioSwiftWatch@ birdscanada.org.

Swimming one of best forms of exercise: register Aug. 14 EMC sports – With childhood obesity on the rise, many parents are seeking forms of exercise that their children will truly enjoy. Swimming is a great form of exercise since it works just about every muscle in your body. Unlike some sports, it has no impact, so it doesn’t cause injuries to the joints and can be enjoyed for a lifetime. It doesn’t require expensive equipment purchases. Recent studies have also found that swimming is reported as being one of the best forms of exercise for reducing stress. In addition, being a competent swimmer is important for safety around water. Arnprior is very fortunate, as a small town,

to have a recreation facility that includes a 25metre pool. The busy pool has swimming lessons, water exercise classes and a swim teams for youth, adults and those with disabilities. If you have a child who loves to swim and would like to spend more time in the pool than what is provided through standard swimming lessons, the Bluefish Swim Club may be a perfect option. There are three levels of swimming offered for youth: SEARS I Can Swim introduces the basic swimming strokes and then helps children refine these strokes and build their endurance in a fun environment. Swimmers should be able to swim one length of the pool to join (25 metres)

and are typically 6 to 9 years old. Programs start in January for 10 weeks, two nights per week. Cost $150. Arnprior Bluefish Pre-competitive: This program offers an introduction to competitive swimming. Refinement of swimming strokes and introduction to starts and turns are part of this two-day-per-week program. Participants are allowed to enter one competitive swim meet in the season. Swimmers should be able to swim two lengths of the pool (50 metres) or have completed I Can Swim. Swim days are any two of Monday to Thursday, 4–5:30 p.m. From October to June. Cost $500. Arnprior Bluefish Competitive: Becoming

stronger and more efficient swimmers in this program requires practice in the pool three to four times per week. This group has the opportunity to enter local and out-of-town swim meets. Swim days are Monday to Thursday, 4 – 5:30 p.m., October to June. Cost $700. Registration for Bluefish Competitive and Pre-competitive is next Tuesday, Aug. 14 from 5–7 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre. This will be a fundraising barbecue, so bring the whole family for supper. Parents can meet the coaches and find out about the world of swimming. Everyone is welcome. Registration for SEARS I Can Swim is held in the fall.

Ultimate new location for fitness centre

EMC sports – The Star Media Group and Metroland Media Group, which includes the EMC group of newspapers, announced last week they have been named the Official Print and Online Media Supplier by the Toronto Organizing Committee for the 2015 Pan American and Parapan American Games (TO2015). As an official sponsor, the Star Media Group and Metroland Media will have exclusive rights as the print and online media supplier for the 2015 Games, which will be held in Toronto and surrounding communities. “It is an honour to be media sponsors for these Games,” said Ian Oliver, president of Metroland Media Group, which includes more than 100 newspapers across Ontario, including such publications as The Hamilton Spectator and the Mississauga News. “We will strive to deliver news relating to the 2015 Games that readers in all of the communities that we serve can use.” “We are delighted to be media sponsors for this major event in Toronto, in Ontario and in Canada,” said John Cruickshank, publisher of the Toronto Star and president of Star Media Group. “Our goal is to provide Canadians from coast to coast with comprehensive, balanced news and in-depth information about the Games.” Star Media Group and Metroland Media Group will provide TO2015 with promotional space in the Toronto Star, Metro, Metroland community newspapers and other publications and online properties, plus value-in-kind allocations of printing and distribution services related to the 2015 Games. “Star Media Group and Metroland Media are the very definition of engaged, community-rooted media,” said Ian Troop, CEO of TO2015. “Their market leadership, their prominence, their reach, and above all their profound commitment to community-building make them the ideal partner for an ambitious project like Toronto 2015. More than anything else, these will be the People’s Games – an open, accessible celebration, not just of sports and athletic achievement, but of our unparalleled diversity and boundless dynamism. “The Star Media Group and Metroland Media walk that talk every day in their media projects. Perfect partners for this important endeavour.” The Pan American Games are one of the world’s largest international multi-sport events, held every four years for athletes of the 41 member nations of the Pan American Sports Organization (PASO). The Games comprise all Olympic Summer Games sports, as well as traditional Pan American sports. The TORONTO 2015 Pan American/Parapan American Games will draw 10,000 athletes and officials and feature 48 sports in municipalities across the Greater Golden Horseshoe area. The Toronto 2015 Pan American Games will take place July 10-26 and the Parapan American Games Aug. 7-14. For more information about the Games, visit TORONTO2015.org.

Canada loses 4-3 heartbreaker to U.S. Americans score in extra time to seal spot in gold medal game after match for the ages EMC Sports - Christine Sinclair showed why she is considered one of the best, if not the very best, female soccer player on the planet Monday. And it still wasn’t quite enough. The 29-year-old Burnaby, B.C., native carried the Canadian women’s soccer team into extra time against the United States, scoring all three of her team’s goals in the Olympic semifinal game at Old Trafford stadium in Manchester, but the number one-ranked Americans still prevailed 4-3. THREE LEADS

Sinclair gave Canada three separate leads in the game, but each time the U.S. tied it back up, the third time on a penalty kick in the 80th minute by Abby Wambach. Alex Morgan then scored the winner deep into the second overtime period. A win would have been an incredible accomplishment for a Canadian side that had never reached the semifinals before, and hadn’t beaten the U.S. since 2001. Canada can still salvage a medal out of the tournament, facing France in the bronze medal match Thursday at 8 a.m. ET. The U.S. will play Japan for gold at 2:45 p.m. BRONZE

“They’ve come to see the flag rise,” said head coach John Herdman after the match. “That’s the job. They

came here for that and the job is not finished. They’ll be disappointed tonight because it won’t be gold or silver, but we’ll take a medal from this tournament.” Ajax’s Candace Chapman, an important veteran defender on the Canadian team, again dressed but did not play. She has not seen the field since hobbling off in an opening 2-1 loss to Japan with a calf injury.

THE CANADIAN ROSTER: WOMEN’S SOCCER (FOOTBALL)

Goalkeepers: Karina LeBlanc, Erin McLeod Defenders: Candace Chapman, Carmelina Moscato, Emily Zurrer, Robyn Gayle, Lauren Sesselmann, Chelsea Stewart, Rhian Wilkinson. Midfielders: Kaylyn Kyle, Diana Matheson, Kelly Parker, Sophie Schmidt, Desiree Scott. Forwards: Jonelle Filigno, Christine Sinclair (capt.), Melissa Tancredi, Brittany Timko.

In happier times Canadian Olympic soccer players Melanie Booth and Christine Sinclair celebrate a goal. The women’s soccer team lost their chance at gold to the American team on Aug. 6. The team played early today against France for Bronze.

Simon Whitfield knocked out of Olympic triathlon after bike crash EMC Sports - Simon Whitfield has been knocked out of the Olympic triathlon after crashing early in the bike race. The Canadian flag bearer was in good position after a the swim but had his bike veer hard into a metal guardrail after coming over a speed bump. Whitfield hadn’t even slid his bare feet into the shoes on his bike before crashing. Whitfield was an Olympic champion in 2000 and won silver in Beijing four years ago. “Sometimes we have to just question training, sometimes it’s just the universe and things just to seem to not happen at the right moment,” he said after the crash. “I just hit the speed bump just as I went to put me shoe on, or I think. I’m not quite sure what happened, but I hit the speed bump on a funny angle and I ended up crowd-surfing, which is good for concerts but not so good for sporting events.”

Americans oust Canadian women’s basketball team The last Olympics game an American women’s team lost was a semifinal of the 1992 Barcelona Games Doug Smith

KIngston native Simon Whitfield wasknocked out of the Olympic triathlon after crashing early in the bike race.

EMC Sports - Canada stayed true to itself in its Olympic women’s basketball swansong. Trouble was, so did the United States. Canada played its usual deliberate, physical style but simply didn’t have enough firepower to handle a de facto WNBA all-star team as the Americans registered a typically easy 91-48 victory in the Olympic quarter-finals Tuesday. The United States has won 39 straight women’s Olympic basketball games and it’s a virtual certainly they will win

their fifth gold medal in a row in Saturday’s final. Playing before a crowd of 8,915 that included LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Deron Williams, the Canadians hung around for a bit before the Americans got rolling. The United States led 198 after one quarter, 42-21 at halftime and 68-31 after three as they simply wore down Canada. The last Olympics game an American women’s team lost was the semifinal of the 1992 Barcelona Games to the Unified Team. The 39-game winning streak they are on began 20

years ago to the day with a victory in the bronze medal game there. The Canadians were playing in a quarter-final Olympic game for the first time ever; the only other Games they placed better in were in Los Angeles; they were fourth in the round-robin of those boycotted games. FIFA

Canada, ranked 11th by FIBA, finishes with a 2-4 record here, with wins over Britain and Brazil and losses to United States (No. 1 in the world), Australia (No. 2 in the world), Russia (No. 3 in the world) and France (ranked ninth). Diana Taurasi had 15 points for the United States, Kim Smith and Chelsea Aubry had 10 points each for Canada.

Hall brings his game to Calabogie, Pakenham steve.newman@metroland.com

Steve Newman

Steve Hall adjusts Mark Baumgart’s grip during a lesson July 13 at the Calabogie Highlands Golf Club.

Steve Hall looks and feels the part of a golf teaching pro. Well tanned and dressed in a TaylorMade cap, bright orange and white shirt, dark shorts and white Adidas golf shoes, he’s out on the driving range giving a lesson to youngsters Mark and Luke Baumgart. They’re new to the game, but already they understand some of its nuances. “It’s a fun game to play once you get good at it,” says Mark, 8. “It’s a nice and calm game,” says Luke, 10. “It really takes a lot of focus. It’s not power that gets the ball to fly. It’s the way you hit it.” This particular morning Hall is working with the youngsters in his capacity as the new teaching pro at the Calabogie Highlands Golf Club. The Renfrew native has worked in the golf industry for years after first getting hooked on the game while playing out of the Renfrew Golf Club as a kid. “I remember my very first tee shot. I skied the ball over the road and out of bounds, and thought, ‘I can do better

than that.’” And he did. Tennis and baseball were big games in his life, but then golf started to take over. “We were on the golf course all the time,” he says. “No one could help you improve, outside of taking a lesson,” he says, trying to describe his fascination with the game. “You don’t need someone to pass (the puck) to you. It’s an individual game, just you and the golf course.” Now 51, he says it’s a game one can’t take for granted. “I still work on my game, I still practise,” says Hall, who regularly plays in the low-mid 70s. He says he also works and plays at a beautiful course, whose main 18 holes feature as much variety as any in the Valley, with gradual climbs or descents on some holes, fluctuating elevations on others, and enough water to keep one honest. Wherever he’s worked, including his previous post at the Mountain Creek Golf Club on White Lake Road in McNabBraeside, golf has continued to suit his personality. “The reason why golf and the golf business fit with me is that you’re always moving. You’re never in one spot for a length of time,” says Hall, whose club duties range from instruction and purchasing inventory for the pro shops (in Calabogie and Pakenham), to booking tournaments and marketing. But a major task is his role as a teaching professional, as drills remain a mainstay of instruction. “I do a lot of drills, over and over, until they’re engrained in your system.” But less so, for much younger players like the Baumgart boys this particular morning. With young and/or new golfers, he says you have to show them bigger parts of the swing, and let them learn from hitting balls and playing the game. With older or more experienced players, it’s often a time to tackle little elements of the

swing, or work on mental aspects of the game. With new golfers, Hall says time needs to be spent working on grip, stance, posture and alignment to the ball. This involves focusing primarily on the getting to the top of the backswing and finishing the swing, he says. “Everything else just happens. If you stop and think of what’s happening in between, you’re going to have paralysis by analysis.” With grip, there can’t be too much pressure, while the hands need to line up with the club head. For stance, too wide or too short prevents equal weight distribution. For posture, have the knees bent and the spine tilted forward from the waist to optimize rotation around the spine. RAILWAY TRACK SYSTEM

As for alignment, he says too many players line up their body with the target, instead of with their ball, leading to such habits as pulls and slicing. Hall calls his approach the railway track system. “The ball,” he explains, “is on the same track as the target. Your body is on a parallel track.” The game isn’t just a technical exercise, though. Hall says etiquette and other life skills learned on the golf course can be invaluable. “If you want to see a person’s real demeanor, play golf with them,” says Hall, noting that apparently patient people struggle to keep their patience on the links. Golfers may also need remind themselves now and then, says Hall, that it’s just a game, and that bad shots aren’t the end of the world. With other people starving or struggling in much bigger ways, he concludes, “The most important things are your family and your health, and there are always other days. Some days you’re going to play well, some days you’re going to play badly.”

EMC sports – Hit the links is support of a worthy cause Saturday, Aug. 18. The 10th annual Jon Brunette Memorial Golf Tournament at the Irish Hills Golf and Country Club in Carp is set to roll that day with a noon registration and a 1 p.m. tee-off time. All proceeds from this annual tournament go towards the Jon Brunette Memorial Fund. The fund was established to honour the memory of Jon Brunette, who lost his life in a snowmobile collision on March 17, 2003 He played his minor hockey in the WCMHA system (1990-1998) and with the Ottawa Valley Titans (1998-1999). Brunette then played three years with the Arnprior Packers Jr. B Hockey Club. The golf tournament is also in memory of Jon and Eric Brunette’s father Malcom, who passed away in 2007. The fund previously sponsored the Jon Brunette Memorial Initiation Fun Day Hockey Tournament, which drew more than 100 firstyear hockey players (four and five-year-olds) from across Ottawa, Arnprior and the Valley to

the W. Erskine Johnston Arena in Carp. That event, however, was cancelled this year due to lack of participation. “I can tell you that the fund will be paying for hockey equipment for the Vance twin boys (who lost their mother in a crash last winter) from Dunrobin this year. Also the fund will be sponsoring Colby Cochrane who plays for the Ottawa Valley Titans,” explains Jon’s mother Val Brunette. She says she expects at least 20 teams to take part this year and is always impressed by the support for the event. “It is amazing that Jon and Eric’s friends still come out and support the tournament. It really is a reunion for them and they look forward to it every year,” Brunette adds. The cost to play in the tournament is $320 per team, $80 per person in advance or $90 at the door. Registration includes 18 holes of golf, cart and a barbecue dinner. For more information or to register to play, contact either Val Brunette at 613-832-1346 or by email v.brunette@xplornet.com) or Brent McQueen at 613-222-2089 or by email brent. mcqueen@ottawa.ca.

Pakenham tournament raises $37,000 for Roger’s House EMC sports – Almontebased Neilcorp Homes gathered 208 golfers July 19 to raise money for Roger’s House during their second annual charity golf tournament at the Pakenham Highlands Golf Club. It was a perfect day with blue skies and lots of good fun. After a 1 p.m. shotgun start, 18 holes of golf, a meal and live auction, Neilcorp was able to raise $37,000 for Roger’s House.

“As our second year running this tournament, we could not be happier with the increase in golfer turn-out, sponsor donations and the money we raised for Roger’s House,” said Doug McIntosh, co-owner of Neilcorp Homes. “We surpassed last year’s number by $15,000 and are beyond pleased. We look forward to next year’s event.” The inspiration for the tournament came in 2010 when Neilcorp Homes met Zoey Lumley-Pfeil and her family. The four-year-old girl had been diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder that left her unable to properly digest food along with of other life-threatening conditions. The energy and spirit Zoey carried truly moved Neilcorp

Homes and the company designed a custom home to help meet the needs of this beautiful girl. Sadly, despite her tremendous bravery, Zoey succumbed to her illness on June 9, 2011. HELPING KIDS

Since this happened in 2010, Neilcorp Homes organized the annual golf tournament in memory of Zoey and to raise money for Roger’s House. All proceeds that come from thegolf tournament are donated to the Roger’s House to help other children like Zoey. A special thanks goes out to all of the volunteers and sponsors of this year’s annual Neilcorp Homes Charity Golf Tournament.

U14 girls remain undefeated, select teams doing well EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An ArnpriorMcNab-Braeaside United Soccer Club under-14 girls team ran its winning streak to 14 by drubbing Deep River Golden Dragons 5-1 Aug. 1 at Dochart Park. The clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two under-10 select teams are also leading their divisions going into the last week of play. U10 BOYS

The under-10 boys select team rebounded from two losses and a draw on its home ďŹ eld in June to sweep three games July 21 at Opeongo. Arnprior edged Renfrew 1-0, beat Petawawa 3-1 and blanked Opeongo 3-0 to pull into ďŹ rst place over the Wildcats on goal differential. The girls under-10 selects team blanked Petawawa 4-0 and whipped Deep River 5-1 in their last two games to take over ďŹ rst place with a 3-1 record. The under-14 Arnprior girls went into their ďŹ nal game with a 14-0 record, having scored 57 goals and allowing nine to be the runaway winners of their division. The Arnprior #2 team in the same division lost their

last game 7-5 to Petawawa and have a 3-11 record. The Arnprior under-14 boys team blasted Renfrew #1 11-2 to improve its record to 6-7-2. Despite the losing record, the team has scored seven more goals than it allowed. In under-18 girls play, Arnprior #2 blasted Petawawa #2 7-1 to improve to 6-4-2, third in the division. Arnprior #1, was edged 2-1 by Renfrew #2 and slipped to 6-5-1, good for fourth place. In under-18 boys play, Arnprior (0-12) just missed out on its ďŹ rst win of the season, losing 3-1 to Opeongo and 1-0 to Petawawa last week. U12 GIRLS Photos by Derek Dunn

In under-12 girls play, Arnprior #2 edged third-place Renfrew #1 1-0 to stay on the heels of ďŹ rst-place Renfrew #2. Arnprior has a 11-3-1 record, a point behind 11-2-2 Renfrew. Arnprior #1 has a 212-1 record, but almost upset Arnprior #2 July 26, ďŹ nally losing 1-0. The Arnpior under-12 boys team is in the middle of the pack at 4-7-3, after losing 3-1 to Petawawa Aug. 6.

The competitive youth league teams of the ArnpriorMcNab-Braeaside United Soccer Club are holding their own as regular season play winds down and playoffs begin. It was a season of contrasts for two Arnprior teams playing at Dochert Park on Aug. 1. Above, the U14 girls, including Rebecca Cowel, above, went 14-0 during the regular season. At right, Eric Whittington of the the U18 boys works hard as the locals jumped out to a 1-0 lead over 9-2 Opeongo. However, they ended up losing 3-1. Despite its 0-12 record, the team was competitive, as evidenced by its previous game 1-0 loss to 7-4 Petawawa.

EMC lifestyle – Pakenham is often described as being as pretty as a post card. An historic bridge spanning the Mississippi River has been the subject of innumerable photographs over the decades. Old stone, brick and frame homes and businesses depicting several styles of architecture; old mills, factories and schoolhouses which no longer survive and strong churches which do; streetscapes and groups of school children – all have been captured on film for more than 100 years. Over 150 of these images have been collected and compiled on a disc and have been made available by a generous anonymous donor to St. Andrew’s United Church in Pakenham. “Picture perfect, indeed.” An insert identifies several of the individuals. Treat yourself to a walk down memory lane. Local history buffs will appreciate this collection and it will also make a great gift for family and friends who have moved away from the area.

Eastern Ontario hardest hit by drought: OFA Crop insurance, federal programs may help some farmers Nevil Hunt nevil.hunt@metroland.com

EMC news - Mark Wales has dusty feet. Like he’s been to the beach. The problem is Wales has just been walking in a farm field; a field so dry that there’s nothing much growing where grass should be knee high or better. Wales is the president of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture and his Aug. 7 tour of Pinto Valley Ranch near Fitzroy Harbour was nothing but dry and dusty, like much of eastern Ontario. “It’s been dry virtually everywhere, but eastern Ontario is definitely the worst hit part of the province,” Wales said of the ongoing drought. He held an ear of corn that almost fit in the palm of his hand as he spoke to reporters at Pinto Valley. “It’s not worth putting a combine in the field to harvest it,” Wales said of the corn. Wales – who farms near Alymer, Ont. – said the drought is affecting growers in diverse sectors, including maple syrup producers and Christmas tree growers. “The maple trees are losing their leaves in early August,” he said, adding that the dry weather will affect next spring’s syrup season. Right now, anyone growing crops to feed animals is worrying about the coming winter. A number of local farmers who stopped by Pinto Valley for Wales’ visit said they are

Nevil Hunt

Dry, empty fields at Pinto Valley Ranch provided the backdrop to an Aug. 7 visit by Ontario Federation of Agriculture president Mark Wales, right. He spoke with ranch owner Ben Jardine, left, and an eastern Ontario OFA director, Eleanor Renaud, centre. The ranch plans to sell 20 of its 48 horses because this year’s hay crop has been severely damaged by the ongoing drought. already feeding this year’s hay to livestock when that food wouldn’t normally be dished out until the winter. Come December or January, this year’s hay may run out and farmers will have to buy feed or sell livestock. The feed price will be inflated due to the drought’s effect on supply. “The prices will be high and there simply may not be

enough hay,” Wales said. High feed prices – or complete lack of feed – could prompt beef and milk farmers to sell their animals, but they won’t make much at auction. Wales said farmers in the United States have already started selling cattle because of the effects of drought, so the cattle market is depressed. “So many farmers are

downsizing, (Ontario farmers) will be selling into a declining market,” he said. At Pinto Valley, owners Ben and Tracey Jardine plan to sell off nearly half their horses because feeding them has become too difficult. The couple rolls out a couple of hay bales to feed their animals each day and they can do the math: the hay won’t last.

Twenty of the 48 horses at Pinto Valley will have to go. “We’ll survive,” said Tracey. “It’ll be nip and tuck.” She said the cutback will have further negative spinoffs, hurting the local horse community. “If kids don’t try (riding), it affects the whole equine industry,” Tracey said, adding that a number of stables that offered

rides for rookies have closed in recent years. Leo Muldoon has cattle on his Dunrobin Road farm and said he hasn’t seen a summer as dry as this in more than 50 years working the land. He said most years he grows enough hay to feed his animals through the winter, but he’ll soon be a hay buyer. He’s hopeful a federal farm program will help offset some of the extra costs that lay ahead, but he’s far from certain. At 23, Kurtis Wilson is the youngest farm operator visiting Pinto Valley Ranch to meet Wales. Wilson said his father Bill doesn’t remember a year as dry as 2012. “They’re saying you have to go back to the ’30s to see it this dry,” he said. Wilson planted some cash crops to go with the usual hay this year, but the drought has cost him almost everything. He made two cuts of hay; the second one just 10 or 20 per cent of the usual volume. And the third cut? “Not for me,” Wilson said. “Everything’s brown.” Wilson said he’s “lost faith” in any government program designed to help farmers after seeing his family lose out when mad cow disease in Canada caused beef cattle prices to plummet. Wales said crop insurance is the first step for farmers hit by the drought. Farmers with loses not covered by insurance may get assistance from the federal government through the AgriStability program. Following the stop in West Carleton, Wales planned to visit farms in the Pakenham and Beckwith areas to see the drought’s effects on tree farms, dairy operations and cash crops. The visit was organized by the Arnprior and Lanark branches of the OFA. R0011538763

Major crop losses feared as heat wave continues Jeff Maguire

Prayer needed to end drought: pastor John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news - The drought that has afflicted the area this summer is a wake-up call for people to turn away from sin and toward God, Pastor Rose Leclaire said at the opening of annual Bible Proclamation in Renfrew July 28. Droughts and pestilence don’t just happen, Leclaire, said, noting people need to pray for rain and God’s forgiveness. “If people don’t obey God … this is what happens,” she said, citing several years of rising crime rates and a high incidence of sexual abuse in Renfrew County. “It’s a time of trial and testing ... in this crucial time, we need prayer more than ever. God is calling on the believers to pray … if they respond he will open the heavens to bring rain.” Leclaire said Renfrew

County is lucky it has such “righteous leadership” in its own political leaders. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant and MPP John Yakabuski also asked that people pray for lo-

cal farmers who are hardest hit by the drought and victims of the July 23 storm. All three were at the opening of the 10th annual Bible Proclamation at O’Brien Park. The two politicians launched the nine-hour outdoor Bible reading, which ended with a

healing service. Gallant said that despite the extreme weather, “we should be thankful for the miracle that happened in Calabogie,” noting no one was killed in the storm. However, many people are suffering heavy financial loss because of the damage, she added. Yakabuski echoed the call to pray for farmers. “It’s a very challenging time for them,” he said, adding that many corn crops in the county are 25 per cent of normal and hay 50 only per cent. However, despite the tough times, there is plenty to be thankful for, he stressed. Yakabuski said the Bible proclamation was a valuable reminder of the importance faith should have in one’s life. “In our helter-skelter lives, it’s easy to relegate God to the background ... but we mustn’t let that happen,” he said.

EMC news - Peter Nanne says he has never experienced anything like the current drought. Nanne, who has farmed in the Pakenham area for more than 50 years, says they could be looking at the biggest crop failure in the long history of their family dairy and cash crop operation. “We’ve had no rain since the first week of June.” Nanne says his crops (they plant nearly 900 acres of corn, soybeans and wheat) is “spotty” at best. “Some fields are going to produce nothing. “We have 50 dairy cows so that is a big help. But there is not enough hay. We usually have lots but this year we probably won’t have enough for ourselves.” The unprecedented heat wave which has settled over Eastern Ontario this summer may be good for those who are on holiday. But the arid conditions are taking a heavy toll on crops and the effects are bound to be felt at supermarket checkouts in the coming weeks and months. Farmers, market gardeners and orchard operators locally are praying for substantial rain as area municipalities and conservation authorities are preaching more economical use of the water resource. Farmers like Nanne are dealing with a different kind of scorching. The intense sun, coupled with almost no measurable precipitation for weeks, has burned crops to a cinder in many places. The corn crop, while appearing normal in some areas, is not expected to produce the usual results in terms of the size of cobs offered for sale or its value to manufacturers as well as winter animal field (silage). Soybeans and wheat is also suffering in the intense heat and dry conditions. Dairy and beef farmers have been forced to feed hay, normally stored for winter use, to cattle who cannot find enough forage in the fields to sustain them. Although first cut dry hay was gathered, second cuts are largely non-existent. Those who harvest haylage (similar to silage, with a higher moisture content) got some second cut but are not expecting a third cut this year. Nanne says it was a good spring with the winter wheat coming in strong (that is the one crop that has been a success for him) and he says planting was better than usual. “The crops went in so well. “But this (drought) started before the crops

could get established.” The Nannes normally sell a lot of the corn and beans and also have forward contract obligations. In other words they are contractually tied to selling a percentage of their crops to major corporations who turn corn and grain crops into cereals and other commodities for the consumer. They will either have to supply the amount contracted or pay the companies involved for it. “We don’t know what the final count will be of course. But it doesn’t look good. It’s all over (the district) though. Everyone is in the same boat,” he says. “Some rain this week could save the beans. The corn is looking worse every day.” Nanne says he doesn’t buy crop insurance which means he doesn’t have that to fall back on either. He said his late father always felt they would never have a total crop failure given the quality of the land they farm on at RR 3 Pakenham. “My Dad said we could never lose everything. This might be the first time.” Nanne is sure the impact on consumers is going to be dramatic with prices likely to rise across the board. He says there could be one positive in that however! “Maybe people will realize where food comes from when there is less.” CROPS DOWN

Randy Maguire, the long-time operator of Harvest Moon Orchard near Carp, says that without substantial rainfall soon, he and fellow orchard owners are in for serious problems. “The apple crop is going to be well down and maybe even non-existent,” he says. He has been working to water his substantial market garden but is unsure whether the results will match the effort. “The frustrating part is that you have to work so much harder and with no prospect of any return,” he says, adding there is “no substitute for proper rainfall. Two more weeks of this and we are in serious trouble.” Without enough available forage for cattle, beef farmers in the district are being forced to sell their animals at reduced prices. Meanwhile, some supermarkets are advertising beef at higher than normal cost. One farmer who spoke to the newspaper, but who does not wish to be named, says higher beef prices in the stores at the same time as cattle prices are falling does not make sense.

Earth, wind and fire not deterring Valley tourism EMC news – A series of meteorological challenges have placed the Ottawa Valley in the news a lot lately. Reports have covered the difficult weather conditions the Valley has faced this summer, namely the drought, storm damage and forest fires. However, local tourism operators want people to know that despite the weather, tourism in the Ottawa Valley remains alive and well. “This has been an exceptional summer in the Ottawa Valley with consistently sunny, bright blue skies,” explained Lauren McIllfaterick, communications co-ordinator for the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA). “There is no better time to get out and enjoy our waterways. Our rivers are flowing, our rapids are roaring, and our fish are biting.” The Ottawa Valley is home to more than 900 lakes and four major river systems, including the mighty Ottawa and Madawaska rivers.

Known as the Whitewater Capital of Canada, the area boasts some of the fastest, cleanest, warmest and safest rivers in the country. Several seasoned outfitters offer a variety of guided packages from screamin’ high-adventure rafting to gentle family float-trips, sea kayaking and sport-yaking, canoe clinics, slalom racing and whitewater rodeos. Local rafting companies are stressing that there is still plenty of water in the Ottawa River for thrillseekers. Not a paddler? The Ottawa Valley appeals to all types of outdoor enthusiasts with expansive multi-use trails, breathtaking canyons, hunting, fishing, ATVing, geocaching, golfing, and small town walking tours. The Ottawa Valley Naturalist Guide, available online at www.ottawavalley.travel/naturalist-guide, offers naturalists a checklist of 308 species of birds, 83 species of butterflies, over 100 species of odonates and almost 1,300 species of

local producers and artisans. Visitors will be able to find organic and natural produce, meat, baking mixes and lots of different arts and crafts. There will be lots of sampling, and ready-to-eat baked treats and coffee for snacks. The Renfrew Taste of the Valley follows Saturday, Aug. 18 at the Armouries. BLUES AND RIBS

“The dependably sunny skies have meant perfect festival and event weather,” said McIllfaterick. “Communities are offering free, outdoor concerts once a week, outdoor art festivals are more numerous

Thomas Cherney takes the helm of the good ship at the Elgin Street Baptist Church’s Faith Makes a Splash summer camp. Left, among the campers making a splash are Emily Cherney, Haley Podperyhora, Morgan McNulty and Brooklynn Fox.

‘Faith Make a Splash’ draws 60 to bible camp EMC lifestyle - The Elgin Street Baptist Church’s Faith Makes a Splash summer camp is growing by leaps and bounds. The week-long church camp for youth attracted 60 youth this year, almost double last year’s total. The morning camp, which ran July 16 to 20, is in its third year. In the first year, it was a two-day camp that attracted a handful of youth. In year two, the camp was expanded to three days with about 30 registrants. “We’re very pleased ... it’s been growing significantly every year,” said the church’s pastor, Julie Ann Morton, noting that this year the camp covered five days. The camp included Bible adventures, games, snacks, crafts and singing, much of it with a summer ‘splash’ theme. On Friday, the campers held a fun day complete with a variety of water projectiles, good for keeping cool on a hot day. Many of the campers entertained the congregation at the Sunday service following the camp week with a grand finale production. R0021548100

Upside down cake is just peachy EMC lifestyle – Comfort food is food that makes you feel good. Very often, it’s something your mother made when you were young. It might be anything from creamed eggs on toast to chocolate pudding. For me, comfort food in August is peach upside down cake. My mother made it every year I can remember and, as soon as the fresh peaches are in, I do the same. It’s as much of a tradition as turkey at Christmas. Although this cake has to be made from scratch, it’s very easy. Peeling and slicing the peaches probably takes longer than mixing the ingredients for the cake. The secret is making this at the right time of the day so that you can serve the cake for supper while it’s still warm. If you’ve never eaten homemade peach upside down cake, give yourself a treat and enjoy. CAKE

1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup 2% with 1 tbsp. vinegar) 1/2 cup margarine 1 1/4 cups white sugar 1 egg

Good food, good advice Food writer and home economist Ellie Topp demonstrates the art of saladmaking after creating humus in less than 10 minutes during her information session, one of several at the Herbfest at the Herb Garden near Almonte July 29.

John Carter

PAT TREW

1 tsp. vanilla 2 cups flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt TOPPING

1 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup butter, softened at room temperature 5-6 peaches, peeled and sliced If you’re using milk and vinegar rather than buttermilk, combine them and let sit while you prepare the other ingredients. Line the bottom of an 8” square pan with aluminum foil. Sprinkle the brown sugar over this then dot evenly with butter. Arrange the peach slices in rows on top of this so that they completely cover the bottom of the pan.

In a mixing bowl, cream the margarine and white sugar. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients, alternating with the liquid. Spoon the batter over the peaches. Bake at 350F for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven, and let sit for about five minutes. Place a large plate upside down over the cake pan. Holding both the plate and pan with potholders, turn upside down, then lift off the pan. Because the pan is lined with aluminum foil, it will lift off easily. Carefully peel the foil off the bottom of the cake. Serve warm with whipped cream. Serves 6 to 8.

Rain provides a breath of life Legion seeks Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

with our eyes pressed close to the cracks in the boards. That year, however, the hot sunny days, with no rain, continued on. It wasn’t long until the ground in our lane settled into wide cracks in the clay, and the normally moist sand around our back door became dry and powdered. CROPS STOP GROWING

Gradually, the crops stopped growing and our garden had to be watered daily by carrying pails of water up a steep grade at the back of the house. Soon we noticed that it took longer and longer to prime the pump. Then, just as if someone had turned off a tap, the pump had nothing more to give up. We were out of water. But we were better off than many farmers in the area, the Bonnechere River ran at the back of our property. It too was feeling the effects of the long dry spell, however, and the water had left its banks until just a 10-foot span trickled down the

centre. My father said we had no choice but to haul the water from the river. Daily, we hitched up the horses to the stone boat, and with every available milk can balanced on the flat surface, we made our way to the visibly diminishing Bonnechere and filled the cans with water. Now, the troughs were only half full for the livestock, and the reservoir on the Findlay Oval went for days without being filled. Our once-a-week baths were suspended and replaced with sponge baths, and the Monday washing was shoved over for another day, just in case it rained. Every mouthful of water we drank came from the Bonnechere and was boiled on the stove, but none of us had much of a taste for it. The drought went on for weeks, and the talk around our supper table centred on how we would manage to feed the livestock over the winter if we had no hay. The evening sing-

The Bedroom & Vacuum Shop

songs ceased. Our parents wore worried looks that sent a pall over the entire household, and I had a gnawing pain in the pit of my stomach that I couldn’t get rid of. Then one morning, very early, we heard the first gentle patter of a soft rain on the roof. It was only a matter of a few minutes until each of us ran to a window to search out the clouds in the early dawn. The sky was dark and we could hear Father yell, “it’s going to be an all-day rain, the sky is covered in cloud!” SHEETS OF RAIN

Soon it was teeming down like sheets of steel. It was the most beautiful feeling, with our hair hanging down over our eyes in a sopping flat disarray. There was no thunder or lightening ... just the soft beating of the rain that had come to breathe new life into our part of the Ottawa Valley. In the kitchen, Mother was frying a pan of home-smoked bacon, and I knew there would be eggs and homemade jam for our toast, a breakfast usually reserved for Sundays. It was a day for rejoicing! The ache in my stomach was gone. And I knew that once again, all was right in my world. R001154439_0809

EMC lifestyle - Today, every farmer dreads a long spell when no rain falls, and he watches helplessly as his crops burn before his eyes. Often, if the drought happens in the late Spring or early Summer, the sprouts of new crops do not appear at all. But a long dry spell in the days when I was a young girl meant disaster and added backbreaking work. We had many such spells, but one I remember most. Summer had erupted beautifully. The crops showed signs of good growth, and the hot days meant that our large garden should produce enough vegetables for daily eating, as well as a bountiful supply to can away for the winter. Our old, iron pump, close to the back door, received its usual coat of bright green paint, and coughed up its regular gush of crystal clear water for household uses, as well as providing a constant supply of drinking water for the farm animals. Two long galvanized troughs sat in the yard close to the pump, and twice a day we took turns pumping, while a couple of us hauled milk-pails full of water so that the troughs were always kept full for the animals. The pump sat on a rickety wooden platform over the well, and I can recall how we often would lie on our bellies

new members EMC lifestyle – Are you a member of one of the greatest organizations created for all Canadians? Everyone knows about the military, the First and Second World Wars, the Korean War and Afghanistan and the Peacekeepers who have served in the many conflicts around the world when other countries called for help. These were the people who recognized the need at home for the veterans to have a place to congregate, meet friends and enjoy comradeship. The Royal Canadian Legion first evolved as just that. Today it is a very significant part of the community. It is a not-forprofit organization that donates thousands of dollars every year to many other organizations requesting financial assistance. It provides school bursaries, donates to the needy, assists in transporting seniors and performs visitation to hospitals and nursing homes. It takes part in community celebrations and hosts the annual Arnprior Santa Claus parade. It donates the use of the Legion building to a number of organizations and fundraising events throughout the year.

Although fundraising to support the upkeep of the Legion building, members sometimes try too hard and find themselves in a shortfall to cover their own high expenses. More than once the community very generously has came to their aid. VOLUNTEER-RUN

Being a Legion member is most satisfying. The Legion runs almost entirely with volunteers and an elected executive. Volunteers are always needed for help for weekly bingos, monthly breakfasts, Friday night dinners and catering to outside clientele. And yes, members do have fun. There is a licensed lounge that is open daily. There is entertainment twice a month on Saturdays and a jam session every Friday night. Any Canadian citizen is welcome to make application for membership. Drop in to the Legion, introduce yourself and get some information. “We’re sure you’ll want to join.” Submitted by the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 174, Arnprior.

McNab school honors two retiring teachers EMC lifestyle – McNab Public School bid a fond farewell to two teachers at the end of the school year. One, Lorna Pleau, had spent her complete 31-year teaching career at McNab. The other, Heather MacDonald has taught in Saskatchewan, but spent the last 23 years in the Renfrew County district with stints at Walter Zadow and McNab. Earlier in the month, they were among the retiring teachers honoured at a retirement dinner hosted by the Renfrew County District School Board. Both board chairman Dave Shields and director of education thanked them for their significant contributions to public education in Renfrew County. Each teacher submitted a farewell biography. LORNA PLEAU

Who says life in the Valley is dull? I was kept busy in my early years as a student at Walter Zadow Public School and then at Arnprior District High School in academics as well as athletics. I took only a short break away at the University of Ottawa where I earned my Bachelor of Physical and Health Education (Honours) and my Bachelor of Education. Happily, the Valley called me back, and I found myself in a Grade 6 position at McNab Public School. Who says 31 years in one school is too long? I sure don’t! I was fortunate to meet amazing people and teach multiple grades throughout the junior/intermediate panel. Somewhere along the line, Grade 8 seemed to stick, and I spent most of my time in this position. Aside from the relationships I built with teachers there, my fondest memories will be the special events that happened for kids at McNab. Coaching volleyball and basketball teams, organizing track and field meets and the Grade 8 Toronto trips, participating in the fun fairs, Christmas shopping days and the Share a Gift program, as well as assisting to build partnerships between Grade 8 students and the younger children as their bus and lunch monitors and ‘reading buddies’ will be some of the happenings I will miss greatly. Who says retirement will be boring? After all, the list is getting long: travelling to the sunny south, visiting Canadian sights from coast-to-coast with my husband, Hayden, and even squeezing in a little golf. But not to be forgotten, my biggest challenge of all. As the ‘behind the scenes’ assistant coach for the Montreal Canadiens, I will be kept busy improving results for the 2012-2013 hockey season. See you in the playoffs!

Retiring staff look back fondly on their careers STAFF

JAMES HRKACH

After attending Arnprior District High School for five years in the late ‘70s/early ‘80s, Hrkach headed off to Queen’s University in Kingston for a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a minor in Art History. Also at Queen’s, he achieved his OTC and B.Ed degree in the famed Artist in the Community Education Program. Hrkach’s first and only position was arts teacher back at his own high school, ADHS, and he has enjoyed 26 years of teaching visual art, integrated arts, drama, music and photography. Extra-curricular endeavours include, performing arts (musicals/plays), festival theatre, art club and lunch hour improv. Hrkach has had an unbelievable impact on many students and staff members. His early retirement serves to allow him to pick up some creative pursuits the busy years of teaching had temporarily put on the shelf. He hopes to revive many artistic activities including painting, design, music composition and recording, stage performance, and both creative and theoretical writing. ALBERT LUIMES

Luimes worked in the automotive

industry prior to becoming a teacher. He worked in the 1970s as an automotive apprentice and mechanic at Myers Motors, Campbell Ford, Arnprior Chrysler and he operated a Gulf Service Station in Hagersville, Ontario. In 1980, he completed his Tech studies at Queen’s University and from 1980-1989 he worked at Champlain High School, Fellowes and Madawaska Valley. He then was general manager of a Chrysler dealership from 1986-88 while on a leave of absence. From 1989 until his retirement this January, Luimes taught transportation technology at Arnprior District High School, where he had a huge impact on so many students. His love for football was evident as he coached the senior team, as head coach, to several wins and most recently back-to-back provincial championships. Luimes plans to spend his retirement enjoying his cottage in Portage and wintering in his home in Florida with his wife Caroline.

DAN BRUMM

Brumm was born an only child, in Ottawa, to an Air Force sergeant and a country singer well before households even had televisions. He did, however, get the benefits of indoor plumbing and electric lights. He went to elementary school in Ottawa, and Chicoutimi on military bases. He attended high school in North Bay and at Champlain High School in Pembroke. After high school, Brumm became a professional jeweller for Peoples Jewellers, opening a new store for the company in Cornwall. He then was accepted into pilot training with the Armed Forces in Chilliwack, B.C. Knee surgery ended that adventure prematurely. Brumm then attended the University of Ottawa to complete his teaching degree to pursue his love of working with children. In 1986, during a very dry hiring period, he was on his way back from a successful teaching interview with the Durham Board. He stopped for gas before going home and picked up a newspaper. To his surprise, there was an ad for a junior teacher at Queen Elizabeth Public School in Renfrew. It was there that Brumm began his teaching career for principal Mary Storie in a Grade 4/5 classroom. From there, he transferred to Horton PS working with principals Brian Teske and Gary Pettigrew. Central PS was his next stop, working with principals Jack Eady and Richard Wereley.

Brumm has worked as a vice-principal at Calabogie PS with Dennis Jenkins as principal, Walter Zadow PS with Ross McEwen, and Cobden PS with Cindy Simpson. He also filled interim principal positions at Admaston, Central and Beachburg public schools. Following his fifth knee surgery this past January, he decided to retire at the end of February. In his brief time away from education, Brumm has taken steps to begin his own home painting business, which he enjoys for the physical benefits and stress-free days. If he ever gets his wife Elizabeth’s list completed, he will be expanding to work that actually pays! He, Elizabeth, son Dane, and daughter Mallory headed for their 26th annual summer trip to Prince Edward Island in July. August will see a return to arenas where he will continue his involvement in hockey with Dane, as well as returning to his painting endeavours. His greatest wish for retirement is to live long enough to see the Leafs win the Stanley Cup. SHARON SCHUBRINK

Schubrink was born in Vancouver and attended Howe Sound Secondary School, Squamish in ‘Beautiful British Columbia’. Upon graduation, she was persuaded by an aunt and uncle to move to Ontario. Initially, she worked for RCA Victor in Renfrew. Her first placement

with the Board was at Alexander Reid in Arnprior was on the custodial staff in 1990. She then worked at McNab in 1995 and then Arnprior District High School from 1999 until her retirement this year. Schubrink says that she will miss her colleagues – “I didn’t mind the work. We operated as a good team, especially during the summer cleanup. Some days were hot though.” Retirement plans include going out west to visit family in Vancouver in the fall, relaxing and bowling. SHARON FUOCO

Fuoco started teaching in 1967 for Nepean Township. After two years with that board, she went to Kingston for a change. From Kingston, she headed north, thinking she would get away from her Dad’s good name. No such luck, of course, as he was well known all over the province. She spent a year in a small railroad town called Hornepayne and lived in the local hotel. She then headed to Kingston for a year and back to Arnprior the next year. Fuoco stayed in Arnprior eight years. Then when she met Richard, they decided to buy a farm on Allumette Island and so she supply taught wherever she could. After their daughter Stephanie was older, she taught at Pine View P. S. Teaching literacy afforded her the opportunity of drawing on many years of experience in the primary grades.

EMC news – Several teachers with Arnprior connections were in the spotlight in June when the Renfrew County District School Board held a retirement dinner and celebration for 29 departing staff members. Board trustees and senior administration gathered to say good-bye to the retirees. Board chairman Dave Shields wrote in the retirement booklet: “ This evening is an opportunity for us to tell you how much your time with the Renfrew County District School Board has meant to all of us and to thank you for fulfilling a very important role in the education of the students in our care, whatever your duties have entailed.” Arnprior-McNab-Braeside Trustee Norm Hazelwood made a presentation to six retiring teachers from the Arnprior family of schools – James Hrkach, Albert Luimes, Sharon Schubrink, Dan Brumm, Heather MacDonald and Lorna Pleau. Other retirees included Suzanne Dunford, Daniel Gallant, Pauline Morissette, David Leslie, Lynda Lepinskie, Lynn Wagner, Lauren Wilson, Anne Guest, Janet McIntyre, Steve Haring, Cindy Simpson, Sandra Allen, Betty Lewis, Susan Chisholm, Juanita Kennedy, Marny Forrest, John McIver, Sharon Fuoco, Sarah Fraser, Cristina Barry and Linda Brumm.

Morissette was born in Elliot Lake where she started her career as a coop teacher. While there she met the love of her life, Jean Paul (aka JP). They eventually moved to southwest Ontario where she became a teaching vice-principal in a French language school. She moved to General Panet High School where she headed the Guidance Department. Morissette re-entered the administration pool by becoming a vice-principal at Highview Public School. A few years later she headed for Calabogie Public School where she was principal. Not long after that Pauline entered the secondary education scene when she became viceprincipal of Arnprior High School. She completed her career in the Renfrew County District School Board as a vice-principal at Mackenzie High School. She loves boating, travelling, skiing and spending time with her husband J.P. She enjoys the finer things in life such as a good cup of tea, fine dining, good wine and good friends. LAUREN WILSON

Wilson got her first teaching job at Fellowes High School in September 1979 as a math teacher. She did an ABQ in Computer Science and spent many years in Pembroke as a teacher of both math and computer science, and department head of computer studies. A redundancy letter in 1990 allowed her to bump into Renfrew CI where she taught math and computer science for a year and a half. In February 1992, she took on her first vice-principal position, at Arnprior District High School, and now finds it hard to believe that she has been an administrator with the board for over 20 years. That 20 years included four years as the V-P at ADHS, a four-year leave to an international school in Venezuela where she did two years as the Grade 6-12 principal, a V-P job back at Fellowes HS, a total of four passionate years in the RCDSB Curriculum Department on two separate occasions, a four-year principalship back at Arnprior HS, an X over Y year sailing the South Pacific, a fascinating year doing a secondary program review for the RCDSB, and finally two-anda-half wonderful years as the principal of Madawaska Valley DHS. She is looking forward to new adventures, and to waking up without an alarm clock, but knows she will miss the students, the adrenaline, and the sense of making a difference that have characterized and enriched her professional life.

Puppets Up! brings the magic to Almonte this weekend

John Carter

Cliff Neudorf of Glengyle Garlic of Lanark sells some garlic to Diana Benton of Alfred and Jen Rose of Barrhaven at Herbfest near Almonte July 29. Neudorf said the garlic crop hasn’t been hit as hard as others by the drought because it likes the heat. However, the garlic is coming early and the key is to pick it before it withers, he added. Neudorf will have his garlic at both Carp’s 13th annual Garlic Festival this weekend.

Carp Market goes all out for Garlic Festival EMC events - Carp Farmers’ Market will holding its 13th annual Garlic Festival this weekend (Aug. 11 and 12) at the Carp Fairgrounds. The festival runs both days, Saturday from 8 a.m to 3 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. “We’ll have over 60 varieties of garlic featured by more than 30 local garlic growers.” says Carp Farmers’ Market president Bob Dobson. “We don’t allow any reselling, so you can be assured of getting top quality from the producer of farm products, food and crafts” More than 100 vendors will offer garlic in all its forms, from pickled to powdered, from

salsa to jellies, along with the wide variety of fresh, local, high quality local produce. Visitors are invited to take part in any number of special events planned for the largest garlic festival in Ontario. Interested in growing your own? Take in one of the speakers on the topic of garlic cultivation, including a talk by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada on pest control for the home garlic grower. Garlic braiding and decorating, cooking demonstrations with chefs highlighting different uses of garlic plus buskers and clowns thrown in for good measure, it all adds up to a spectacular outing for families and friends – and a must for garlic fanatics.

EMC events - How does a little town like Almonte manage to attract some of the best puppet troupes from around the world? Abracadabra! It’s Magic! This year, It’s Magic! is the theme as the Puppets Up! International Puppet Festival celebrates its eighth season. On this weekend (Aug. 11 and 12), Puppets Up! will once again present a two-day festival of wonder and amazement as 10 professional puppet troupes perform in familyfriendly tented theatres. This year, the festival will include troupes from France, the Czech Republic, the United States and even Almonte itself. “There will likely be a few bunnies popping out of top hats at Puppets Up! this year, but the real magic is the connection that happens between the puppets and our audiences,” says the festival’s artistic director Noreen Young. “It’s truly a magical family fun event!” In addition to the festival’s world-class puppeteers, magician Elliott Smith will headline a line-up of magicians and street entertainers who will mystify and enthrall. (Smith has received the Order of Merlin Shield, a prestigious award given by the Interna-

Paddy Vargas

Festival mascot Nick and puppets with the statue of Dr. James Naismith, the inventor of basketball. tional Society of Magicians.) He’ll be joined by festival favourites the Balcony Puppeteers (think Sesame Street’s Statler and Waldorf) and other artists like musician and children’s entertainer, Jake Differ, and Matt Ficner, whose animatronic robot puppets are often seen on Mill Street. The festival’s parade - in the afternoon of both Saturday and Sunday - is a highpoint in a daily roster chock full of

puppet shows, face painters, balloon twisters, stilt walkers, clowns and magicians. Saturday night is reserved for the adults-only puppet cabaret at the Almonte Old Town Hall. Most of the puppet magic happens within the historic downtown core of Almonte. For more information on performances, tickets and pricing, visit www.puppetsup. ca.

Many memories, friendships for retiring teacher Heather MacDonald Continued from Page 44

I am one of many fresh-faced graduates from Nipissing University thousands of miles from home, eager to begin a teaching career in Saskatchewan’s far north with the Northern Lights School Division. Our only connection to the outside world is CBC Radio, SaskTel, letters and care packages from home via “The Sched” - Sask Air’s weekly scheduled F-27 flight, and local bush planes, weather permitting. I persevered and survived to the surprise of many seasoned northern veterans. My first teaching assignment was in a Kindergarten to Grade 9 School in a multi-grade classroom, with students whose academic abilities ranged from Kindergarten to Grade 4. I remained in this position for two years. During my third year at Wollaston

Lake, I accepted the Resource Room (Special Education) teacher position. For four years limited resources in both teaching and daily life were a challenge. However, as a result I became more tolerant and innovative as a person and teacher. The year 1983 found me accepting a position as a teaching vice-principal at Minahik Waskahigan School in Pinehouse Lake, Saskatchewan. It was a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school. Along with my duties as a vice-principal, I was the Resource Room Teacher. I was now connected to the south by a gravel road five hours from the nearest southern centre, Prince Albert. In 1986, I bid adieu to Saskatchewan’s far north and the untouched beauty of the land and its people. I accepted a position as a teaching vice-principal with the Broadview School Division in Whitewood, Sas-

teaching vice-principal at Walter Zadow Public School in Arnprior, September 1989. In the fall of 1990, I went back into the classroom full-time. At Walter Zadow Public School where I taught for 20 years, I held teaching positions from Grade 2 to Grade 8 and was the Primary Division Early Literacy teacher from 2002 to 2009. The past three years I have been teaching Grade 4 at McNab Public School. In my 23-year association with the Renfrew County District School Board, I have been actively involved in a number of board and Ontario Ministry of Education initiatives: Positive Action, Evaluation and Assessment, Language Review Committee, Ontario Curriculum Exemplars for Grades 1 to 8 Reading, FIRST STEPS (the Early Literacy Intervention Program) and the

CODE project. I will miss many aspects of teaching, especially the day-to-day interactions like a primary student’s eyes lighting up, the moment, they break the code and read, the junior student who fools us all and is a natural at being an emcee at the school’s Remembrance Service, the young student teacher’s enthusiasm in delivery his/her first lesson, the after class discussions with a fellow colleague on our commute from night classes at Ottawa University, the morning and evening chats with the custodian, the banter and sharing of ideas around the photocopier with fellow colleagues to name a few. However a new chapter is unfolding. I do not know where it will take me, but my feline friends and I are going to take each day as it comes and enjoy. Slainte Mhath (slanj uh va)

katchewan. It was a Kindergarten to Grade 12 school as were 26 many of the rural schools in Saskatchewan. My teaching assignment was Grade 11 English and Grade 6 Language Arts and Mathematics. I resided on the prairies adjacent to the Number One, the Trans-Canada Highway and the scenic Qu’Appelle Valley for three years until a yearning for home grew stronger. Saskatchewan’s teaching profession welcomed and embraced me with open arms. I am forever indebted to my mentors and fellow teaching colleagues, who helped me become the teacher, I am today in the 10 years, I called Saskatchewan home. Many lifelong friendships were forged there and remain today. However in 1989, family and the Ottawa Valley called me home. The Renfrew County District School Board offered me a position as a

Fast-growing dog sport finds home in Horton Josh Tapper Toronto Star

Josh Tapper

Angela Catford of Ottawa tosses a floatie to her one-year-old mixed breed dog Meshka at the Dock Dogs Mists of Avalon national competition. Meshka jumped 12 feet and four inches.

Dog parks in the news EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In Alabaster, a suburb of Birmingham Alabama, a $5,000 dog park was recently introduced to the public. The dog park was funded with a grant from the Beneful dog food company. It housed agility hoops, a path with tunnels, a field for playing fetch, water sprays for cooling off on hot days and a wash station. This is one of many dog parks throughout the United States. I visited one such dog park in California and I have heard of another in Florida, both of which were funded privately. The one I visited in California was directly on the beach and the dogs loved it. I took pictures of them frolicking in the sand and surf. One dog in particular seemed to love chasing the crashing waves as they hit the beach. Others were simply playing fetch or chasing other doggy friends. Toronto has 10 public dog parks and there are 10 dog parks in Ottawa including the well-known Bruce Pit. LIFE, TIMES OF SWEET P

The loss of a beloved pet is one of the most painful experiences in life.

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP Whether our pet passes away at home or we are forced to make that awful, heartwrenching decision, the pain that results is the same. Recently, our family had to choose to humanely end our beloved cat, Sweet Pâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. She was 16 years old and suffering from cancer. She was diagnosed back in October 2011 and we were blessed to have her with us until just two weeks ago. Sweet P was not just a cat, she was an integral part of our family. She was extremely talkative (just like her human daddy) and loved to communicate with us. We rescued Sweet P at the age of eight weeks from a feral colon that lived out in a friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barn. She was a shy kitten who

craved attention but was too scared to receive it. With love, lots of patience and understanding, slowly she came out from beneath our bed to finally accept cuddles. It was wonderful to see her begin to trust us and enjoy her forever home! Sixteen years goes by so quickly. In the blink of an eye Sweet P was with us and now she is gone. We still feel her and hear her everywhere in our home, especially on her special pillow on the top of a shelving unit. This was and will always be Sweet Pâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place. Thanks to the doctors and staff at Gillies Grove for treating Sweet P with the dignity that she so deserved. -Written by Tena Stupp IN MEMORIAM

To our sweet Sweet P, gone but not forgotten! To Amber, You will be missed! Some day we will see you both on the other side of Rainbow Bridge! Ian owns and operates Wags & Whiskers Pet Grooming and Puppy Kindergarten at 118 John St. North. For comments or suggestions, Ian can be reached at 613-6236200 or info@wagsandwhiskerspg.com.

Top dock jumpers â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tazâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Vegasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and the Chiasson family from Shannon, Quebec, just east of Quebec City, were the stars of the national Dockdogs championships on the July 27-29 weekend at the Mists of Avalon ranch in Horton. With Taz, a black Labrador, and Vegas, a terrier, are Mike and Eloise Chiasson and son Caleb. Mike had high praise for their hosts, Todd and Mary Spurrell, saying they went all out to treat their guests well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their set-up is amazing â&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so clean and welcoming. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great place to be.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - All thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standing between Taz, an oilblack Labrador retriever from Quebec City, and 40 feet of shimmering pool water is a long wooden dock and the ready, set, go bark of his owner Mike Chiasson. But this is no ordinary pooch leaping off the dock at the cottage. This is â&#x20AC;&#x153;dock jumpingâ&#x20AC;? - an international canine sporting event - and there are world records at stake here. Through the din of dozens of yapping dogs watching poolside and the blues rock blasting through speakers, Chiassonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice booms out as Taz bolts toward the water: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mon, Taz! Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mon, Taz! Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mon, Taz!â&#x20AC;? This is the world-record holder in the Dock Dogs Big Air event. His 31-foot leap last month at the Canadian dock jumping regionals in Cornwall blew away the competition and secured him - and Chiasson - a spot in the world finals this November in Dubuque, Iowa. As Chiasson tosses an orange toy high into the air, Taz, in a Canadian flag body suit, lunges at it and splashes down 24 feet, 9 inches away. His trainer shakes his head. A sub-par performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually consistent at 27 or 28 feet,â&#x20AC;? Chiasson says later Saturday. Here at Mists of Avalon in Horton just outside Renfrew, in a three-day national Dock Dogs event, Taz is unquestionably the pre-eminent pooch. Nearly 100 dogs from Ontario, Quebec and upstate New York travelled to Avalon Ranch, a dog sport and grooming centre on Lochwinnoch Road. Chiasson drove here in a brand new RV, which he purchased to haul his family and three dogs across North America for dock jumping competitions. The Horton event was his sixth this year and he plans to attend another four, at least, before Dubuque. Dock Dogs, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest dock jumping circuit, runs dozens of events each year in the U.S., Canada, Britain and Australia. Event organizer Bob Dewire says more than 20,000 dogs have competed since the organization was founded in 1999. On the surface, dock jumping seems remarkably straightforward, no different than luring a dog off a cottage raft. But, like any organized sport, there are rules. Dogs must be at least six months old to enter any of the three competitions: Extreme Vertical, which measures jumping ability; Speed Retrieve and Big Air. Owners, of any age, must sign an injury liability waiver.

In Big Air, which was on display Saturday, dogs have 90 seconds to jump from the dock without any physical interference from humans. Owners can throw any kind of floating toy as bait; food or live animals are not allowed. The rule was changed years ago after an Arkansas owner heaved a caged live raccoon, according to Dewire. Distance is measured using a 60-frame-per-second camera set up next to the pool. Images are transmitted to a laptop, where marking software pinpoints to the inch how far a competitor jumped. Judges look for where the dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rear end hits the pool. There are, of course, inevitable problems when dogs mix with water. One German short-haired pointer named Hoyt whined uncontrollably at the end of the dock while his owner pleaded with him to take the plunge. And Mollie, a bouncy four-and-a-half-year-old border collie mix, seemed to enjoy swimming more than jumping, much to the chagrin of organizers. Chiasson, who competes in a burnt orange â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tazâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tshirt and receives sponsorship from a local pet store, admits he takes dock jumping far more seriously than most. He pushes Taz through a â&#x20AC;&#x153;body builder regimeâ&#x20AC;? of squats and tries to establish a canine mania called â&#x20AC;&#x153;toy driveâ&#x20AC;? by repeatedly teasing his dog with a toy. But many who enter competitions are simply seeking exercise for their pets or searching for camaraderie with other dog lovers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just about being out here with your best friend,â&#x20AC;? says newcomer Mike March, who travelled from Watertown, N.Y., with his chocolate Labrador retriever, Hunter. Already, Hunter was nailing 20-foot jumps Saturday. Mists of Avalon, held on a seven-acre field dotted with vendors selling dog trinkets and homemade banana chocolate chip bread, lacked the haute-chien snobbery of the prim dog show scene. Owners shared throwing strategies while some dogs barked and jumped at each other. For Kathleen Halliwell of Ottawa, throwing a toy to her dog, the border collie mix Mollie, is one of the few activities her multiple sclerosis allows. Halliwell, sporting an oversize floppy red-striped hat, thrilled in yelling â&#x20AC;&#x153;Go, go, go, go, go, go, goâ&#x20AC;? as Mollie launched after her orange ball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had been looking for a sport that was not harmful to the dog,â&#x20AC;? says Halliwell, leaning on her cane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw (dock jumping) and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Water and chasing, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thing!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

RAISING FUNDS, BIKING FOR MS

EMC lifestyle – The Spa Salon in Arnprior is supporting the local Breast Cancer Support Group with an August promotion. The event will both raise funds for the group and promote the use of sunscreen lotion, which helps reduce the incidence of skin cancer. From Aug. 1 to 31, the Salon is holding its annual midsummer sales with proceeds from the sale of sunscreen to be donated to the breast cancer support group. “Enjoy the summer sun, but protect your skin,” urges support group member Hyacinth Chatterton. “Pick up your sunscreen … thanks for supporting your relatives, friends and their families who are living with, and fighting against breast cancer.” She notes the sunscreen product in question has been featured and promoted through ‘hat parties’ at the Kirkman House throughout the years. People can drop in at the salon on Madawaska Street or reserve product by calling Elta Watt at 613-6237455, Hyacinth at 613-623-0976 or Karen at 613-623-8886. Chatterton notes the fundaiser is more important than ever as there wasn’t a Walk With My Mayor this year. However the committee is hoping to organize a celebratory 10th anniversary walk in 2013.

United Way volunteer Sue Diotte hurries to keep up with demand at the Daniel Street LCBO fundraiser last Friday, Aug. 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been really, really successful,â&#x20AC;?

The barbecue was held at the LCBO parking lot because Ontario liquor stores are partnering with United Ways across the province to help raised the needed funds for the community. The barbecue was also sponsored by Jack & Faithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No Frills, Arnprior Giant Tiger, Metro, M&M Meats and the Town of Arnprior Recreation Department.
