A team of four cars will appear in this Saturday’s Arnprior Fair demolition derby in honour of family member and friend Chris Walsh who died April 2. Getting the cars prepared, from left, are Harry Parsons, Mikila and Tiffany McLeod, Murray Swaine, Dickie McLeod, Diane Swaine, Rick McLeod, and driver Alex McLeod.

Derby team honours memory of Chris Walsh Derek Dunn

Chris Walsh will be in the Arnprior Fair demolition derby this year, if only in spirit. The 29-year-old Arnprior man’s body was found on Russett Drive on the morning of April 2. Walsh was a demolition derby car enthusiast, spending many hours stripping old cars and preparing them for the Arnprior Fair

event and others. He worked along side relatives in the McLeod family - Rick, Dickie, and Alex - at their Premium Vehicle Storage Ottawa on Fourth Avenue in Arnprior. A troubled soul, Walsh found solace in working along Rick whom he greatly admired. “He was like one of my own kids,” said Rick. “Chris always wanted to strip cars, even if they weren’t his!” Every credit application accepted!!

Five face serious charges for fire John Carter

Five young males face attempted murder and arson charges after an incendiary device was thrown through the front window of Spruce Crescent home in the early morning of Saturday, July 30. If it wasn’t for an alert neighbour, the whole complex of six Renfrew County Housing rowhouse units could have burned down during the sleeping hours. Three males from Arnprior, one from

Renfrew and another from Pembroke have been arrested and are being held in custody pending a court appearance in Pembroke on Friday, Aug. 5. Braydon Miller of Arnprior and Noah Neuman of Pembroke, both 20, were arrested in Kanata early on Tuesday, Aug. 2. After a bail hearing, they were remanded in jail until at least Friday. Later that day, OPP arrested three other suspects, Teddy Wolfe, 20, of Arnprior and juveniles from Arnprior and Renfrew. See FIREFIGHTERS, page 2

Firefighters prevent destruction of six Spruce Crescent rowhomes Continued from front

They were picked up in Arnprior and held for a bail hearing Aug. 3, when they were remanded into custody, also until at least Aug. 5. Furthermore, Miller faces a charge of criminal harassment and one of the young offenders a charge of possessing a prohibited weapon. Arnprior fire chief John Okum reported that firefighters were called to 26 Spruce St. at 6:06 a.m. Saturday after a woman across the street saw smoke coming from the front of end unit #32. While the unit had occupants, reportedly a woman and a baby, they weren’t home at the time of the fire, said Okum. He said the neighbour who called 911 pounded on the door of the adjoining unit, alerting the woman living there. No one was in-

jured in the fire. Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze, limiting it to the one unit. However, it had begun to creep from the entrance way and the living room to a closet and up the stairs to the second story. If the fire hadn’t been reported until later, it could have easily spread to the other rowhouses in the block, Okum said. Early on in their suppression efforts, firefighters determined the fire was suspicious, so the OPP and the Fire Marshal of Ontario’s office were called. “Once the fire was out, it was clear it was likely not naturally occurring,” said Okum. The fire had likely been smoldering for some time as the police report indicates the incendiary device had been thrown through the window at “approximately

4:39 a.m.” OPP began an investigation right away and an official from the Fire Marshal’s office from the Ottawa area arrived by noon Saturday to assist and take over the fire scene from the fire department. Anyone who has information in regards to the suspects and the offense is asked to contact Detective Constable Lori Birmingham of the Renfrew OPP at 1-888-310-1122. People can also provide information at Crime Stoppers Pembroke/ Renfrew County toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 or online at The investigation is being carried out by the OPP’s Criminal Investigation Branch, assisted by Renfrew, Upper Ottawa Valley, Lanark and Kanata OPP crime units. Indicating how serious police are taking

the case, also involved are the East Region Intelligence Unit, Provincial Operations Intelligence Bureau and Forensic Identification Unit. While the police are investigating the criminal aspect of the case, the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office is determining how and where the fire started. An OPP release says all five suspects have been charged with: • attempt to commit murder; • arson – disregard for human life; • arson – damage to property. As well as the criminal harassment charge against Miller and the prohibited weapon charge against one of the young offenders, the other juvenile faces a charge under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. The two juveniles cannot be publicly identified under the provisions of the Youth

The home that had an incendiary device thrown through its front window. Criminal Justice Act. Okum noted that the increase in detached housing in communities such as Arnprior puts more stress on small volunteer fire departments. The potential of fires in rowhomes and condominiums growing into major blazes is more of a hazard in those areas. When there is a fire in a detached home, it’s important to detect it early so it can be stopped from spreading, he said.

A small crew of firefighters attended the early morning Spruce Street fire, but knocked it down quickly. “They did a really good job,” said Okum. Among the firefighters attending were seven recruits who have been in training with the department for the past year. “They did a fabulous job,” Okum said. “I’m very proud of them.” BAIL HEARINGS

Two of the men charged with arson case will learn later this week if they get bail or not. Miller was scheduled to appear by video in Pembroke court on Wednesday, Aug. 10 at p.m. Neuman will appear by video in Pembroke on Sept. 7 at 1:15 p.m. Wolfe will appear in Renfrew court on Sept. 7 at 9:30 a.m. The two juveniles will be handled through the youth court system with details kept from public.

Derby team a comfort Plenty for horse lovers to see at this year’s fair to Walsh’s mother Continued from front

Continued from front

So it comes as little surprise that family and friends have finished the 2002 Buick Century Walsh was working on for this coming Saturday’s derby. They picked his favourite colour, orange, and are using his number, 88. On Monday the decals arrived: Team Walsh, and In Loving Memory of Chris Walsh. Alex McLeod will drive the car. “He’s going to win,” Dickie said. Because it is a team of four, three more cars will be comprised of the orange 88. It all brings some comfort to Walsh’s mother Diane Swaine and stepfather Murray, who are former fair board members. “Chris would say, ‘Get that smashed!’” Diane said. “I thought it would be nice to do. There are a few on the fair board who were very kind to Chris and did a lot for him.”

CHRIS WALSH He will have plenty of fans in the bleachers, too, from one side of Canada to the other. His girlfriend is coming from British Columbia, and family from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia will be on hand. “I’m pretty excited about it,” Diane said. “It will be a hard day, but a nice day. “Chris spent a lot of time at the shop.” This Saturday’s derby starts at 6 p.m.

The fair board is hoping to add a light horse show to the equestrian offerings next year and even harness racing in the future is not out of the question, said fair board chairman Jeff Desarmia. He praised the organizers of the team penning, noting that more than 65 riders are competing at the fair this year. As well, the Ontario Chariot and Chuckwagon Association is bringing in its horses and riders for mini-chuckwagon races at 1 and 3:30 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. For the younger horse lovers, there will be the Ross and Debbie McCaig and Sons petting zoo and pony rides. The fair board has put the disappointment of a midway’s sudden cancellation three years ago and is delighted to welcome back again last year’s favourite, World’s Finest Shows. With the Renfrew Fair dropping the company for Carter shows, World’s Finest Shows is bringing its full complement of rides to Arnprior on its way to the Capital

Aging town hall to undergo accessibility, security upgrades Derek Dunn

Despite long-time plans for a new town hall, Arnprior is going ahead with costly upgrades to the existing building. At a special meeting on the morning of Aug. 3, Council agreed with a staff recommendation to approve a renovation project worth some $132,000. (A federal grant will cover about $33,000.) According to the report, the first by newly hired engineering officer Ryan Wall, the building should be made more user-friendly and safe. “The Arnprior town hall has long been in need of several accessibility and security upgrades,” reads the public works department report. “The work included in this tender was proposed as a means to improve the level of accessibility at town hall, as well as to improve security measures within the building.” Those with limited mobility can have difficulty climbing stairs to the second floor where most public meetings take place along with various services offered. A hydraulic lift will be installed from the ground floor lobby

to the second floor reception area. Also included in the work will be a new barrier free washroom on the second floor, next to the planner’s office. A new doorway will be built to gain access from the second floor hallway. The washroom will include automatic door openers, an emergency call system, hand rails and other features. Just as has recently been done at Nick Smith Centre, the second floor reception desk at town hall will be lowered. As part of the security measures, that same reception desk will get a glass barrier between the public and staff, doors with automatic actuators for staff and council, a relocated clerk’s door, and other security measures. Mayor David Reid suggested the world is increasingly more dangerous and employers have increasingly more responsibility to ensure the safety of their staff. “We’ve had no real serious incidents,” he said. “But the world is changing and we need to be proactive.” He noted that the previous day a member of the public was shaking a stick at the re-

Meek fundraiser ‘strikes out’ at cancer John Carter

The Braeside community is rallying together in support of one of their own. A “day of fun and fellowship” has been organized this Saturday, Aug. 13 to help wellknown Braeside resident Daryle Meek in his fight against cancer. The ‘Strike Out Cancer Fun Day for Daryle Meek’ will begin at noon and run all afternoon, rain or shine, at the Braeside RA Centre. The multi-faceted fundraiser will feature a ball tournament, horseshoes, music by Jesse, a barbecue with special chef Dan Leblanc and a corn roast. Everyone is invited to come out to join the Meek family and play ball in the informal fun tournament. As organizers say, “we hope to strike out cancer and have a ball doing it.”

McNab-Braeside council has thrown its support behind the event, providing the RA centre facilities for free. At its Aug. 2 meeting, council agreed to waive the $85 ball diamond fee and the $75 fee for the hall in case it rains and the event moves indoors. Mayor Tom Peckett introduced the motion, noting that it is typical of McNabBraeside folks to band together to help a resident of the area struggling with health problems.
Deputy Mayor Brian Armsden called the decision to waive the fees a “nobrainer” and urged that “everyone come out and have a fun day” in support of Meek and his family. The organizers are doing a great job, he added. For more information, call John Storie (613-761-2558), Brenda Storie (613-6236883) or

ception desk. There is little proof to show it was a serious incident, he admitted, but the municipality has to be preventative. However, Reeve Walter Stack is concerned about allocating more money for a building that will no longer serve as the town hall in the next few years. He agreed with spending the money, but asked staff to prepare a report – before budget deliberations 2017 – detailing how much money has been spent to

date on renovations. He said a new town hall is in a long-range planning document that is coming up on its 10th year. The contract was won by Marty Periard At Your Request, whose bid came in about $27,000 less than the only other company submitting a tender. He has done work for the town before, “providing competitive pricing and quality work,” reads the report.

World’s Finest Shows rolled into the Arnprior Fair grounds on Tuesday. Youngsters of all ages are excited, anticipating the expanded midway. The fair officially opens today (Thursday) at 5 p.m. The midway is open until 11:30 p.m.

“Gifted” but “uncontrollable” child? Don’t drug them…heal them! The world needs them! More and more, parents find their way into my clinic in a desperate attempt to make their life and their childs life easier. They usually have tried it all from counselling to medication and are at a point where it is no longer an option to just sit and wait for a miracle to happen.Their day to day challenges center around managing their child.The school calls to complain about their misbehaviour. Teachers often don’t know what to do, just as parents are at their width end with their patience. Arguments happen way too often and resentment, hatred and overwhelm become a way of life. Yet deep inside every mom and dad know their child is special…. soooo special! Just how can we turn things around? Let me tell you a little story: A few month ago both parents brought their young teenager into my clinic. I work with all of them together but also provide confidential individual time if necessary, as the goal is to respect everyone. Even though the child is going to be treated, mom and dad need to understand the ground work and rules and will be enlightened by my suggestions as it relates to their parenting style. This teenage boy was suffering from anxiety, ADD and ADHD. He is a bright and engaged young teenager, who loves to take control of his life. After the initial assessment I provided some energetic homeopathic remedies. I showed the boy how to take the remedies and he took the first dose right in my office. At the end, I briefly spoke with mom in private, while dad and his son waited in the car. Next month at the follow-up visit, mom was beaming from ear to ear and dad said: I can’t believe this, but he was another child from the first time he took a drop of your remedies! He immediately calmed down and was patiently waiting in the car for mom to come out, without getting impatient or angry as he usually would.” Mom continued saying:“I even can take him shopping now, without being afraid that I’ll have to run out of the store in embarrassment of him having a panic attack or a tantrum! His conflict resolution is so much easier and we are actually coming to a conclusion.” Then I turned to the boy and he smiled: “I don’t even have my nightmares anymore!” Healing at it’s purest.No drugs,no side effects! Results can be this immediate! Heilkunst - the different kind of counselling - where everybody counts and not just the one treated. Embrace your family.

Arnprior sidewalk snow clearing routes change Derek Dunn

Arnprior will clear snow from more streets this winter, but some will see their service reduced. Council had staff prepare a plan to add another $52,000 to the sidewalk winter maintenance budget, covering three kilometres. (It costs $17,000 to clear one kilometre of sidewalk per typical winter.) Staff’s plan is meant to assuage concerns in some neighbourhoods that saw school children walking on roads in areas with large snow piles.

The streets where an additional sidewalk will be cleared include: • Stonehaven/Frieday/Staye • Landrigan from Edey to William • Bridge from Fourth to Madawaska • Arthur from Daniel to Elizabeth • Charles from Daniel to Elizabeth • William from Edward to Ida • Edward from Edey to Elgin • Atkinson from Daniel to Thomas • Short from Jack to Moe Robillard

• Moe Robillard from Short to Madawaska • Arthur from Elizabeth to Diamond Springs • Charles from Elizabeth to Fairview. The cost will be $80,525. Savings of $28,875 gained from reductions in sidewalk clearing service will offset it. Streets to be reduced from clearing sidewalks on two sides to one include: • John South from Edey to William • Victoria from Harrington to John • Harrington from Madawaska to Ottawa • McGonigal from John to Hugh • Hugh from McGonigal to Meehan. The idea is to treat this winter as a “trial,” according to Reeve Walter Stack. He said it would be nice to clear all sidewalks, but that would cost about $400,000. It was noted the provincial government is considering it mandatory that municipalities do just that.Mayor David Reid talked about including Ida to ensure a second passage from the north part of town to the downtown and high school. He also favours McLachlin over Edward. “It’s not going to be perfect, other than to spend a bunch of money we don’t have,” Reid said.

Arnprior hospital to benefit from $1.7M Derek Dunn

It represents the largest funding allocation to Arnprior Regional Health (ARH) since the redevelopment of the emergency department six years ago. Arnprior District Memorial Hospital will receive almost $1.7 million from the provincial government, it was announced late last week. ARH president and CEO Eric Hanna said the capital-focused money would be used to replace and upgrade building equipment that ultimately benefits patients. “With these investments we are able to provide a greater patient comfort through new heating and ventilation systems, increase the safety of our premises with the electrical upgrades and reduce the costs to heat our hospital,” Hanna said. “It’s really good news and I’m glad to see it is the largest investment since the ER redevelopment.” Much of the hospital was built in the 1960s and 1970s, so requires expected replacements. The $1.692 million will go toward new boilers, electrical upgrades, asbestos removal and a new roof. ARH set the infrastructure improvement cost at $5.5 million. This latest announcement, along with last year’s almost $600,000, brings the total still needed down to about $3.2 million. “We appreciate the funding provided by the ministry of health as these funds ensure we are able to continue to allocate some of other financial resources to much needed medical equipment,” he added. “We are rais-

ing money now for X-ray equipment.” The money is part of an announcement of $3.8 million for repairs and upgrades to Renfrew county hospitals, including $441,319 to Renfrew’s Victoria Hospital. Arnprior’s allotment was more than double that of the hospital given the second most, Pembroke’s Regional Hospital at about $692,000. Hanna said the government used to base the funding on need, which gave the largest hospitals in the largest population centres far more money then those in small towns. A new formula has been worked out, so smaller hospitals with significant needs will get more attention. “Clearly they have been able to make adjustments in the methodology.” Hanna has yet to find out if a ranking system exists detailing theneediest hospitals in Eastern Ontario. Asked about staffing needs, Hanna said turnover remains low at below two per cent, and two new physicians and one locum have arrived (to offset those retiring). He said the biggest issue facing ARH is a lack of beds at The Grove Nursing Home. The provincial average is 88 beds per 1,000 people over the age of 75. Arnprior is operating at 42. Talks will resume with elected and ministry officials in the coming weeks to see about an expansion at the nursing home. The province will spend nearly $134 billion this year. It vows to eliminate the $5 billion deficit by 2018, although it will also add $30 billion to the debt, which will sit at $296 billion. Interest payments account for onethird of all spending

Can’t beat country fairs Fair season in the Valley begins in earnest today when the Arnprior Fair kicks off with, what else, a demolition derby and a country music show. Yes, there have already been a few fairs in the Valley this summer (Almonte, Beachburg), but they are really too early to be counted. Fairs should be scheduled when the full heat of summer has passed, the days are growing shorter and the crops are nearing harvest ready. Even the Arnprior, Pakenham and Cobden fairs are too early, but as there are so many great fairs in the Valley, it would be difficult to find another weekend for them. With the summers growing hotter longer (thanks, climate change), it’s too bad there aren’t more open weekends later in the summer to reschedule the early fairs. The Shawville and Renfrew fairs are well positioned to benefit from warm days and nights with a slight bite in the air. The Carp Fair dates are even better, falling on crisp cooler days of early autumn. Fall fair rolls off the tongue. It sounds right. Summer fair doesn’t. Fortunately, the heat wave that has blanketed the area for several weeks now is expected to moderate a bit by the weekend, so it should be quite comfortable for people to enjoy the many attractions at the Arnprior Fair this weekend. And there is plenty to see and do at this year’s fair. Hats off to the small core of fair board volunteers for revitalizing the fair and bringing it back to its roots. Agricultural pursuits, especially those re-

lated to horses, will be well represented at the Arnprior Fair. With the Renfrew and Carp fairs already renowned for their horse shows, Arnprior is joining the party with heavy and miniature horse shows and a major team penning competition. And more horse events are likely to be added next year. While it’s unlikely to catch up to Renfrew, the Arnprior Fair is slowly building up its number of exhibits, a staple of rural fairs. So it’s on the right track. And by bringing back the popular midway that used to thrill youngsters at the Renfrew Fair, Arnprior is narrowing the gap in that aspect too. With the Renfrew and Arnprior fairs spotlighting the area’s agriculture roots, there’s another sector that the fairs could turn to if they are looking for new attractions. With the Logger’s Memory Project being planned for Red Pine Bay and other areas around the region, it would be timely for local fairs to get in on the act now that the Lumber Baron Festival is only a memory. Logger sports, demonstrations and displays would be both entertaining and informative, while paying homage to the lumberjacks who were instrumental in developing this area. Entertainment, education, heritage. That’s always been the combination that has made the Upper Ottawa Valley’s fairs so popular. So whether the weather is summerish or fall-like, get out enjoy our area’s fair offerings starting this week in Arnprior.

What a wonderful year 2017 will be To the Editor: Today (Aug. 4), we mark the 150-day countdown to Canada’s sesquicentennial. For 150 years, we have built strong communities and we have been innovative and compassionate because we desire a better country. Getting there means imagining the Canada of tomorrow and doing what we can to make that a reality. I look forward to welcoming all Canadians to Rideau Hall in Ottawa and the Citadelle in Québec next year because celebrations will happen here. Both official residences will host some fantastic public events and ceremonies honouring

So much for global warming

To the Editor: There have been editorials in the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide with dire predictions for our climate, due to man-made global warming, caused by the burning fossil fuels, producing CO2. Is your editorial board aware of a recently released peer reviewed study on the Sun, by Professor Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University? The study predicts a large drop in the Sun’s next three solar cycles between 2020, and 2053, resulting in a cooling period on Earth, not seen since the 1600s

She has a BSc/MSc in Applied Mathematics and Astronomy, and a PHD in Astrophysics. Professor Zharkova is also an author of numerous peer reviewed published studies.

most important element in our climate. Surely it is not unreasonable to ask that our supposedly unmuzzled government scientists review and comment on this study before, the Prime Minister, the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, and the Premier of Ontario take us down the economically disastrous road that Europe has already taken. Another inconvenient truth for the fallacy that is ‘the Science is Settled’. Tony Eitzen Arnprior

A tale of two shorebirds Does the word ‘shorebirds’ conjure up an image of plump birds running along ocean beaches? It might well, for sandpipers and plovers – the two main groups of shorebirds – migrate along coastal beaches in spring as they head north to Arctic tundra nesting sites and in fall as they head for South American beaches where they spend winter. Some species overwinter in Florida and Texas where human snowbirds encounter them during their winter hiatus. But shorebirds also regularly stop by our area during migration, with flooded fields, beach shorelines (such as at Westmeath), and sewage ponds (such as the Almonte Sewage Ponds) being good places for seeing them. And there are several species that nest locally, including one with a very different family life. The best-known local ‘shorebird’ is undoubtedly the Killdeer. This common plover thrives in agricultural settings, and is unquestionably more common today than it was before colonization transformed forest to field. Their loud, plaintive ‘kill-deer, kill-deer’ calls and convincing broken-wing acts, put on when someone nears their nest on the ground, make Killdeers


very recognizable. Killdeers are plovers - bigheaded, large-eyed shorebirds that visually search for invertebrate prey on the surface of the ground. Killdeer pairs remain together until their young become independent, with the males taking part in the incubation duties. While most other plovers nest in the Arctic, the Piping Plover, an endangered species, is currently making a comeback in southern Ontario. In addition to pairs nesting on beaches bordering Lake Huron, this year Piping Plovers also nested at Darlington and Presqu’ile Provincial Parks. Three Piping Plover chicks

hatched at Presqu’ile, the first time in exactly one hundred years since the species last nested there. Due to a lack of extensive sand beaches, Piping Plovers will likely never nest in our region. However, in addition to Killdeer, there are several species of sandpipers that do nest locally. These include the long-billed Wilson’s Snipe and American Woodcock, and the uncommon Upland Sandpiper, a long-legged, small-headed sandpiper that occasionally perches on telephone wires or fence posts bordering grassy fields in which it nests. While you may not have seen any of those species, there is one

Left, This Piping Plover chick marks the first time in one hundred years that this endangered species nested at Presqu’ile. Its colourful leg bands were placed there by the Canadian Wildlife Service in order to track its future movements. Above,, A well-named bird, the Spotted Sandpiper has a most unusual family life, with females taking multiple mates and abandoning them to care for her eggs.  common shorebird that you likely encountered along the shore of a lake or river. That is the habitat of Spotted Sandpipers, small shorebirds with a heavily spotted breast and a characteristic bum-wagging walk. Unlike Killdeers, Spotted Sandpiper pairs don’t share parental responsibilities. In fact, these sandpipers are one of only a few species in the world that exhibit polyandry, a mating system in which females mate with multiple males and saddle them with most of the incubation and chick-rearing responsibil-

ities. A female Spotted Sandpiper courts a male, mates with him, lays eggs and then deserts him to court another male while the abandoned male incubates her eggs. By the time you read this article, I’ll be seeing lots of sandpipers and plovers, but not locally. I’ll be in James Bay conducting shorebird surveys for the Canadian Wildlife Service. My next column will be about my experiences up north. So stay tuned because more shorebird stories are on the wing! The Nature Number is 613-3872503; email is

Climate change town hall planned for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Staff

Three Renfrew County based environmental groups are hosting a climate change plan input session for the riding on Tuesday, Aug. 16. The Pipeline Awareness Renfrew County, Bonnechere River Watershed Project and Ottawa River Institute organizations are encouraging interested people from all over the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke to participate in the town hall meeting in Eganville. It will be held at 7 p.m. at the Eganville Legion. The groups called the meeting in reaction to the federal government’s call for public input on Canada’s national climate change plan. The session is being held to discuss citizens’ concerns on the topic and input will be forwarded to the federal government. “Please come out and speak up in support of an ambitious national climate strategy,” urges the release announcing the

meeting. Refreshments will be provided and the legion is wheelchair accessible. The three co-hosts suggest the following are some of the questions that should be tackled at the meeting: • What are the solutions to reducing greenhouse gases that you would like to see governments, businesses, and communities implement? • What are your ideas to support the economy and create good jobs while reducing emissions? • What are some ideas to promote innovation and new technologies in the effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions? • What can Canada do to better adapt to impacts of climate change on the environment and support affected communities, including Indigenous communities?

Paddle down the Madawaska

The final celebration of rivers paddle of the season will be held this Saturday. Aug. 13 from Springtown to Burnstown on the Madawaska River. Participants in the finale of six paddles this summer will have something extra to celebrate, with the announcement in late July that the Ottawa River will get its long-awaited heritage designation. Paddlers will gather at the Burnstown Beach to register for the paddle from 12:30-1:30 p.m. and then be shuttled Cherry Point in the Springtown for put-

in around 2:30 p.m. The paddle is expected to take about an hour and a half paddle. The paddle is organized by the Bonnechere River Watershed Project and the Township of McNabBraeside. The cost is $10 a person. To help with logistics, organizers are urging participants to register in advance by contacting:McNabBraeside recreation programmer Karla Belton at or at 613-623-5756, ext. 232.

Ontarians urged to protect themselves from lyme disease Ontario government officials have reiterated a call for residents to protect themselves from tick bites while enjoying or working outdoors this summer. “Lyme disease can be serious,” stresses a news release quoting Dr. Eric Hoskins, the province’s Minister of Health and Long-Term Care ,and Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health. If not identified early, infection can lead to recurring arthritis, neurological problems, numbness, and

paralysis. Lyme disease is spread to humans through the bite of an infected blacklegged tick. Tick populations are established in known risk areas throughout the province. In addition, multiple factors are allowing ticks to potentially establish populations in new areas throughout the province. These factors include climate change, warmer winter temperatures and ticks’ ability to “hitchhike” on suitable hosts, like birds or deer. Ticks live near the ground in woodlands, tall grasses and

bushes, and thrive in moist environments, like those found underneath old leaves on the forest floor. The best way to prevent tick bites include: • Wearing closed-toe shoes, long-sleeved shirts and pants • Pulling your socks over your pant legs to prevent ticks from crawling up your legs • Wearing light-coloured clothing to spot ticks more easily • Using insect repellent containing DEET or Icaridin on clothing as well as on exposed skin.

National armies pose little threat over medium term: MP Views split on whether joint U.S.-Canada operations in the north are enough in both frequency and size Derek Dunn

Foreign governments pose little threat to Canada over the next decade, but terrorists groups do, Cheryl Gallant said at a local meeting to discuss the country’s future military strategy. The Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP held a public meeting to gain feedback on defence policy options. Armed with a set of questions drawn up by various national parties, Gallant and other MPs across Canada will bring their findings back to Parliament Hill for government and Conservative Party consideration. The comment about traditional warfare, however, came with a caveat related to insurgency and terrorist organizations.

“The generals are telling us they don’t see state actors as enemies over the next 10 years,” Gallant said. “Non state actors like ISIL are a different story.” The remarks came during a discussion on missile defence. Canada has none, though Russia, North Korea, and Iran are possible threats. And rogue elements getting hold of one is even greater. “What keeps our military leaders up at night is if one is put on a vessel and eventually reaches its target,” said Gallant. One of the three members of the public on hand at the Wing in Renfrew on the afternoon of July 28 suggested government monitor for missiles but not allow interceptors on Canadian soil. The hope is the U.S. will cut off a Russian missile in the far north before it reaches ma-

da will suffer the fallout. Views were split on whether joint U.S.Canada operations in the north are enough in both frequency and size. But all agreed that clear communication is crucial. Where communication is lacking so is leadership, one participant indicated. LOCAL MANUFACTURERS

A question was posed that would affect at least two large local employers. “Should economic benefits to the Canadian industry be a consideration in the defence procurement process?” Haley Industries near Renfrew and Arnprior Aerospace both benefit from building parts for the Government of Canada. Should the feds protect those jobs or pick whoever offers the best return on investment? Gallant spoke briefly about the controversial F-35 jets deal, then talked about competitors who lose a bid crying foul, forcing a re-do, which adds to delays. She was told the manufacturing sector has been devastated over the last few decades and that it should be brought back. “If we can produce it, we should.” Inter-provincial bickering can be reduced by determining which jurisdictions do a particular product well, and stick with them. Others should or do specialize in other sectors.

WAteR RestRictions

The Watering Restrictions By-law 04-14 is designed to regulate and control the usage of water, within the Almonte Ward, in the hot summer months. Between May 1st and September 30th each year there are limitations on who can water and at what time. Odd number houses may water on odd calendar days and even numbered houses may water on even numbered days. Watering may occur between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. each day and from only one connection. Midday is the hottest time of the day and the water is more likely to be wasted through evaporation when watering at this time. Watering from more than one connection simply uses too much water at once. A significant amount of new grass or sod is exempted from these provisions for one week. Any other violations of the by-law may result in a fine. Municipal staff will be enforcing the Watering Restrictions. Arnprior Chronicle-Guide - Thursday, August 11, 2016 15

Arnprior sign maker wins national award for 3D creation Tiffany Lepack

When you walk into The ShoeLounge in downtown Renfrew one of the first things you see is its stunning 3-D sign. The sign was created by Arnprior sign maker Shirley Carron of Black Sheep Designs and it recently won a national award from the Canadian sign magazine Sign Media in its national sign competition where it won for top building sign. The sign was inspired by a glass mosaic piece created by Renfrew artist Kathryn Bossy. “I took inspiration from that sign,” explained Carron. Carron says as a sign maker her job is to make sure everything stays consistent with the store brand. She has been making signs for 29 years and she says this win confirms what she should be doing in her life. She found out she won via email a few weeks ago and is very humbled by the honour. “I thought wow, I wasn’t expecting it because it was all across Canada,” said Carron. “I am excited to do more

3-D work in the Valley. The lower piece of the sign was supplied by T.R. MacMunn in two pieces, it has a metal mounting bracket which is hidden between the two sides. The shoe itself was handcrafted from high-density urethane and the bows are made of epoxy clay over mesh and all mounting hardware was concealed behind the knot. “It took 80 hours to make,” said Carron. “Shaping, sanding and painting it by hand.” The Shoe Lounge owner Jill Soucie, commissioned the sign in early 2015 and it was completed last fall. Soucie says it took a lot of back and forth planning for the vision to be realized. “I’m choked up, being a brand new business and just coming out of winning best new business into this,” said Soucie. “I know Shirley’s passion and what it means to hear. It’s unbelievable because it’s her heart.” Both women are now looking forward to their next sign project together.

Ottawa Valley supports Olympian Melissa Bishop Tiffany Lepack

The Ottawa Valley is embracing Olympian Melissa Bishop with signs of support. Dana Jennings, the community development officer for Bonnechere Valley, helps with the Team Melissa Bishop Facebook page, which has issued a challenge to the Valley. A recent post on the page says: “Community Challenge to all residential and commercial property owners to show your support for Melissa by decorating your homes, businesses, lots with whatever ‘Melissa’ support messages you can come up with.” Jennings encourages everyone to participate. “We knew in the past there were many supporters who came to the Eganville arena who came from Pembroke and Renfrew,” said Jennings. “We consider her an Ottawa Valley girl. We thought it would be very fitting to put out this challenge.” Eganville’s Bishop recently qualified to compete in the 800-m at the Olympics in Rio by winning the Canadian 800-m championship with a record-breaking

time of 1:59:32. In a meet near the end of July, she broke her own record by winning the TrackTown Classic with a time of 1:57:52. Jennings hopes the community gets behind Bishop. “It’s important to show her we are all thinking of her,” said Jennings. “We totally support her endeavor of making it to the Olympics.” Signs can be picked up at the municipal office, but she says the challenge is open to anything. “Be creative. Put it in your window or on your front lawn,” said Jennings. Once it is up she encourages everyone to email her and she will put it on the Team Melissa Bishop Facebook page. Locally, signs have already started to pop up. A tribute at McGregor’s Produce in McNab-Braeside says: “We are cheering Melissa Bishop.” In the Douglas area, Barclay Dick and Son Farm Supply’s sign declares “Go Melisssa Go #YABISH.” (A popular social media hashtag when cheering her on.) Jennings speaks very highly of Bishop. “I have never met an athlete who is so down-to-earth. She meets you on the street with a warm hello,” said Jennings.


And even though she attended the University of Windsor and is close to the Nation’s Capital, Jennings recalls an interview when they said she was from Ottawa and she politely corrected them. “She knows where she comes from, she takes pride in it and is always very gracious.” The 27-year-old also competed in the 2012 Olympics and is looking forward to the Rio games. “It’s a huge honour to wear the maple leaf and represent Canada,” said Bishop in a recent interview with Metroland Media. “You want to do well. Every time I get the uniform it is something special.” She will be competing in the 800-m on Aug. 17 and 18, and hopefully in the final on Aug. 20. Jennings says a viewing party at the Eganville and District Public School is already in the works. “We don’t know the times yet. It will be no cost for anyone who wants to view the race as a community,” said Jennings. Bishop did not participate in the opening ceremonies and arrived in Rio on Aug. 6.

Tee it up for Autism to support Arnprior area family Staff

A golf tournament is being held Saturday, Aug. 20 at the Madawaska Golf Course to spread awareness about autism and assist a family with Arnprior roots. Tee it Up for Autism is in support of the Chislett family that includes two boys who have both been diagnosed with autism. Tee it Up for Autism golf committee member Carly Chicquen said the goal of the effort is “to bring much needed awareness and increased understanding for those individuals and families living with autism, while showing our love and support for the Chislett family.” She said Leanne Chislett grew up a Valley girl in Arnprior with her family (the Porters). Leanne and husband Nick know the “joys and challenges” of raising a child with autism, said Chicquen. She said their son Portland was diagnosed with autism in 2012, but since exceeded expectations because of his parents’ “wholehearted dedication to his therapies and their tireless love for their son.” Last fall when their youngest son Beckett was diagnosed with autism, the Chisletts were all too familiar with the chal-

lenging road that lay ahead, she added. Upon hearing of Beckett’s diagnosis, the idea for Tee it Up for Autism was born. Organizers say the fundraiser “is our small way of supporting our dear friends and helping their two young boys.” As early intervention therapies for children with autism are critical for their development, the funds raised will go towards the Chislett boys’ additional therapy and medical bills. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Portland’s school, the Allegro Autism School in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey. “Raising children with autism is a long journey, but with unconditional love and a strong support system, that journey becomes the most special gift of all,” says the release promoting the tournament. The golf tournament will have a 1 p.m. shotgun start and includes dinner and music afterwards.

A golf pro and more: Mountain Creek’s Jonathan Schaepper Wendy Tessier

Mountain Creek Golf Club

Jonathan Schaepper isn’t just the golf course owner and operator of Mountain Creek Golf Course, he’s also a CPGA golf professional, and multilingual jack-of-all trades, which is exactly why he so loves his “job.� Every day presents new and different opportunities, be it trying out a new aerator, teaching someone to golf or barbecuing steaks for 80 people. Wed to the irrepressible Shari Keen, Jonathan and she have three active boys, Gregory, Liam and Jordan. Indirectly, it’s thanks to their boys that Jonathan isn’t living and teaching in Switzerland. Switzerland?! That is quite the story. Of French Canadian and Swiss heritage respectively, his parents, Franci Schaepper-Leonard and Hans Schaepper operated Archie’s Golf Centre in Cornwall for years; naturally, Jonathan was exposed to golf early in life. He played locally including at the Cornwall Golf and Country Club, which he still visits on occasion as an active, competing member of the Professional Golf Association of Ottawa (being the local zone of the PGA of Canada). Just two years ago, Jonathan was named Player of the Year based on points won via the Players Tour. Obviously, he continues to relish competitive golf when he can, and chuckles recounting some recent wins and losses. “When I don’t win, I often place second. I don’t mind losing so long as it’s not always to the same guy!� But back to the story: after graduating from high school, Jonathan struck out on his own travelling to Orlando, Florida, to study at the Golf Academy of America. He successfully completed their program, which gave him many of the diverse tools needed to further drive his golf career: accounting, club and golf course management, food and beverage sales, golf manufacturing, tournament administration, people skills, establishing contacts in the field of golf, and more. “More� being strengthening his own excellent golf game under the tutorship and guidance of PGA professionals. After all, golf is one wonderful mix of business and pleasure. Upon graduating at 21, Jonathan was presented with a professional opportunity at a Hungarian golf resort. He and Shari were keen to make their mark on the golf world as they happily headed for Hungary. Now this is an interesting and funny story that deserves to be savoured over a nice cold beer, but suffice to say, while their adventure in getting in and out of that Hungarian ‘opportunity’ is worthy of a book, to sum it up: they had to walk away after five days as it simply was not a viable endeavour. “Walk away� inadequately describes Jonathan’s travails with all their belongings in two dead-weight suitcases and a heavy, awkward golf travel bag. He had to move one 50 feet forward then return for the other as he couldn’t handle both while Shari handled the carry-ons. That 30-hour travel ordeal saw them strug-

gle: their American money was unacceptable in a shillings-based economy, so they had nothing for food or drink or accommodations. They slept on the sidewalk outside the train station in Vienna, surrounded by their mound of luggage. They finally straggled into Switzerland, hungry, tired, and thirsty, to stay – gratefully - with family friends. This, in turn, led to his second professional golf job: teaching people golf, but in Swiss-German, a language he didn’t speak! But such is life: a temporary job with Swiss-German workers in the four months prior to the teaching job’s start saw him acquire enough of the language to be able to teach. It’s a good thing golf is as much show as tell. The Schaeppers settled down for nine years to enjoy life in Zurich, including celebrating the arrival of Gregory, then Liam. Jonathan taught and played competitively during golf season and in the off-season, travelled with clientele groups to different countries, such as Spain, Turkey and Morocco. Mornings, he’d lead lessons with the group, enjoy lunch, then play teaching rounds of golf in the afternoon with threesomes of clients. Sounds idyllic, and it’s something he expresses he’d eventually like to do again with some Canadian groups. But the clock was ticking: the boys were growing and Gregory was now a year away from starting school. As parents, they decided it was time to explore opportunities back home in Canada. Shari’s dad, Brian Keen, as well as Jonathan’s parents, were on the look-out, and they approached several courses that would be in relatively close proximity to both families. It’s indicative of this young couple’s values that they wanted to be within an hour of their children’s grandparents. Mountain Creek then was owned and operated by Don Noseworthy and Barry Laphen. It looked promising. When asked what best impressed him about the club, Jonathan says with a wide grin, “Of all we looked at, it was the liveliest and friendliest.� Unafraid of the risk, Jonathan Schaepper took another leap of faith. The deal was struck and at 30, Jonathan became a golf course owner/operator/pro. Being a member of the Swiss PGA, he also had to re-qualify in Canada as a member of the PGA of Canada. He and his staff of 20 have just begun their 12th golf season. While a large percentage of staff is local students, some are retirees from the area, and some, like Scott Drummond were already employed by the club. Drummond, as head greenskeeper, is doing an amazing job with course conditions and, as the Mountain Creek website crows, keeps “the best greens in the Valley.� And they don’t mean lettuce, although the course boasts a garden too. Scott’s wife, Barb, heads up the kitchen staff and is renowned for her butter tarts. Jonathan shakes his head in amazement, commenting how far people will travel to walk in the door, not only for a tee time, but


The Schaeppers enjoy outdoor sports too. Gregory and his father Jonathan Schaepper completed a 25km Weber Loppet last winter. to buy Barb’s freshly-made tarts! Winters see Jonathan enjoying spending “play� time with his family. It was the crux of the Schaepper’s decision that Canada be the country where their kids would grow up, and have access to the great outdoors. The family cross-country skis and also loves camping and fishing. Last winter Gregory (now 14) and Jonathan completed

a 25-km Weber Loppet in -28C temperatures. Anyone who visits Mountain Creek can’t help but note Jonathan’s faithful predilection for the Montreal Canadiens whose flag flies proudly over the practice putting green whenever the Habs are on the ice. The Schaeppers, with Jonathan at the helm, run a family-based operation of which Shari, Hans and Franci and the children are an integral part. They welcome kids, seniors and everyone in between, and offer teaching programs and events for same, as well as member, company and family tournaments. Their support of the local economy by using local suppliers is evident from the steaks Jon expertly barbecues to the craft beer on tap. It is obvious this young man and his family love what they are doing, and continue to work hard to improve their beloved Mountain Creek golf course for their members and playing public while ensuring it continues to be reputed to be the liveliest and friendliest club in the area.

She and her partner Matt grow vegetables, and raise sheep, chickens and pigs in Woodlawn with a focus on building soil and rotational grazing on pasture. She has a passion for eating seasonally throughout the year, which has led to a love of canning, freezing and dehydrating food - and a need to pass along this traditional knowledge.

Chronicle-Guide ARNPRIOR

Renfrew Mercury 28 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide - Thursday, August 11, 2016








Dec 2, 1932 – Sept 20, 2004

Apr 15, 1960 – Aug 16, 2005

April 11, 1939 – August 8, 2008

We think of you every day and laugh often at the memories. Missing you still. We shed an occasional tear, but we know that you are together in a perfect place. Always in our hearts, Claire, Rob, Tami, Cailean and Kyle



He was getting old and paunchy and his hair was falling fast, And he sat around the Legion, telling stories of the past. Of a war that he had fought in and the deeds that he had done, In his exploits with his buddies; they were heroes, every one.

And tho’ sometimes, to his neighbors, his tales became a joke, All his Legion buddies listened, for they knew whereof he spoke. But we’ll hear his tales no longer for old Bill has passed away, And the world’s a little poorer, for a soldier died today. He will not be mourned by many, just his children and his wife, For he lived an ordinary and quite uneventful life. Held a job and raised a family, quietly going his own way, And the world won’t note his passing, though a soldier died today. When politicians leave this earth, their bodies lie in state, While thousands note their passing and proclaim that they were great. Papers tell their whole life stories, from the time that they were young, But the passing of a soldier goes unnoticed and unsung. Is the greatest contribution to the welfare of our land A guy who breaks his promises and cons his fellow man? Or the ordinary fellow who, in times of war and strife, Goes off to serve his Country and offers up his life?

PEPLINSKI – In loving memory of Dominic Michael Peplinski. September 25, 1946– August 5, 2013 Fondly loved and deeply mourned, Heart of my heart I miss you so; Often my darling my tears will flow; Dimming your picture where’er I go: ‘Tis sad but true, I will abide Until someday we’ll be side by side. Love Julie Peplinski and Family



A politician’s stipend and the style in which he lives Are sometimes disproportionate to the service that he gives. While the ordinary soldier, who offered up his all, Is paid off with a medal and perhaps, a pension small.

He was just a common soldier and his ranks are growing thin, But his presence should remind us we may need his like again. For when countries are in conflict, then we find the soldier’s part Is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start.



HOCKEY SCHOOL every Saturday

Should you find yourself in danger, with your enemies at hand, Would you want a politician with his ever-shifting stand? Or would you prefer a soldier, who has sworn to defend His home, his kin and Country and would fight until the end?

If we cannot do him honor while he’s here to hear the praise, Then at least let’s give him homage at the ending of his days. Perhaps just a simple headline in a paper that would say, Our Country is in mourning, for a soldier died today.

You filled the world with special joy And happiness untold, You always had a sunny way And a lovely heart of gold. You made life so much brighter Just by being thoughtful, too, And saying kind and helpful things Was typical of you. That’s why it’s hard to face the world And know you won’t be there, Lighting up life so warmly with your smile beyond compare. The memories you’ve left behind Grow sweeter day by day But you are missed dear Loved One, More than any words can say. With love Adele and family


It’s so easy to forget them for it was so long ago, That the old Bills of our Country went to battle, but we know It was not the politicians, with their compromise and ploys, Who won for us the freedom that our Country now enjoys.

In Loving Memory of a Dear Husband ANTHONY “Tony� STAPLETON Dec 30, 1951 – Aug 13, 2015 Time slips by and life goes on, But from my heart, you’re never gone. I think about you always, I talk about you too. I have so many memories, But I wish I still had you. Miss you and Love you, Always and Forever Sweetie Laurie

Enjoy a taste of the country at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pakenham Fair Ashley Kulp

For more than 100 years, the Pakenham Fair has been a late summer staple, celebrating the rich agricultural heritage of the area. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edition is set for Saturday Aug. 13 at Pakenham Community Park and the Stewart Community Centre. The traditional country fair includes horse, beef, dairy, horticultural and craft shows, vendorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities. According to Tiffany MacLaren, community economic and cultural co-ordinator for Mississippi Mills,

the fair is a true time-honoured tradition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Pakenham Fair is a great community-wide celebration,â&#x20AC;? she noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes many volunteers to pull it all together. From the horse show to the fair exhibits, from the Manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Best Friend contest to the bouncy castles, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fun-filled affordable day to be outside enjoying each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company.â&#x20AC;? Hosted by the Municipality of Mississippi Mills, this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair carries the theme â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Animal Anticsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and will feature the Caven family of Mississippi Veterinary Services officially opening the fair at noon

on Aug. 13. However, activities at the fair actually get underway bright and early at 7 a.m. with the MacMillan Ladies Broomball breakfast at the fairgrounds concession stand. Visitors can start the day with a hearty meal of eggs, bacon, homemade baked beans and toast for just $6. Breakfast will be served until 10 a.m. As the day rolls on, a bake sale inside the Stewart Community Centre will tempt your sweet tooth, beginning at 9 a.m. and the horse show at the ball diamond kicks off at 9:30 a.m. Throughout the day, visitors can

take in fall fair exhibits in the community centre, pick up some treasures at the craft show and vendor market from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or view horticultural exhibits, also at the community centre. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty to keep the kids busy as well, with activities kicking off at 10 a.m., including bouncy castles, frog jumping, face painting with Korny Klowns, or make your own T-shirt for $5 with JB Arts. Another highlight includes the Eclectic Adam Comedy and Magic Show, with two viewings during the day, at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. In keeping with the animal theme, a hunting dog demonstra-

The 4H Calf Show is set for 10 a.m. at Fred Millar Field. Satisfy those hunger pangs at the Mississippi Mills Fire Department barbecue from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. where firefighters will be grilling up hot dogs and hamburgers.

The fair runs until 4 p.m. and admission is just $5 for adults and free for children. Save those ticket stubs as a door prize draw is scheduled for 3 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to the Pakenham Fair â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to give it a try.

The Road Hammers headline Arnprior fair entertainment Tiffany Lepack

There might be a little mud at the Arnprior Fair this weekend. Well on the stage anyway, as lead singer for The Road Hammers says ‘Mud’ is one of his favourite songs to perform. “The crowd really gets into that one; I really enjoy it that and it makes it fun,” said Jason McCoy. The band will also be playing some old favourites too. “We do some of my solo songs, like Born Again in Dixieland. It amazes me people still know that one.” The Road Hammers took home the award for Canadian Country Music Group or Duo of the Year in 2005 and that same year won the Juno for country recording of the year. They also won the 2006 CCMA Awards for Group or Duo of the Year. The band will be hitting the main stage this Friday, Aug. 12 at 9 p.m. McCoy says they have a really good job and enjoy meeting people after the show. “We have a lot of friends in the Ottawa Valley. It’s a great life, we have homes all over the place,” said McCoy. He says he has been to Arnprior many times and calls the area a beautiful place. “On one of my first bands some of my bandmates were from Arnprior,” said McCoy. “You have some great talent up that way with the Family Brown and Charlie Ma-

jor; there must be something in the water.” The group’s music could be called country-rock, but McCoy has another way to describe it. “It’s the feeling of the first time you kiss a girl or the first time you shoot a gun; it’s exciting,” said McCoy. “We try to have fun and we pride ourselves in putting on a good show.” Monica Schnob, the entertainment director for the fair, says they have put together a great line-up, one everyone will enjoy. “The Road Hammers is a perfect pick for our ‘Country Fair’ and people are really looking forward to that show on our main stage,” Schnob said in an e-mail. Tonight (Thursday) in the beer tent after the demolition derby, Rudy and Saddle Up will hit the stage. “Rudy and Saddle Up band has played in the Arnprior Fair grounds before and everyone has such a good time with this band and requested to have them back,” said Schnob. Local band Rainwater Whiskey will hit the stage twice Friday night. They will start on the main stage at 8 p.m. before the Road Hammers and will finish off the night in the beer tent after the main show is over. “Rainwater Whiskey is a local band that have played at Ranch Night for couple years now and we are proud to now have them at the Fair,” said Schnob. Rainwater Whiskey is comprised

of Mark Bolton on guitar from Constance Bay, Thomas Watson from Renfrew is the lead singer and Kent Clingis from Richmond is on drums. The group describes its sound as modern country that is closer to a rock band with some classic songs as well. They have played at the Arnprior Stampede, the Ranch night and a number of local events in Arnprior. “We can’t wait to play,” said Bolton. “We have been hoping to play the fair since 2013.” He says Arnprior is like their second home and they are very thankful for the support of the fair committee. “They have been really good to us,” said Bolton. “Getting to play the fair is a big hoopla for us.” They say it is amazing to be opening for McCoy. “He has been a big influence to me,” said Clingis, who encourages everyone to come on down to the fair. “It will be a hell raising good time!” On Saturday at 9 p.m., Switchgear Submitted takes to the stage. Schnob says they seem like a fun down-to-earth bunch Jason McCoy is the lead singer for The Road Hammers who hit the main stage at the Arnprior Fair this Friday at 9 p.m. of guys.

Yard sale to benefit mission, animal rescue A giant yard sale at Country View Mini Mart (formerly known as Cherry’s) at Calabogie Road and Highway 17 will raise money for a double cause this Friday and Saturday (Aug. 12-13). The ‘huge’yard sale, bottle drive and barbecue is a fundraiser for Bailey’s on a Mission and Valley Animal Rescue’s EmptiesforPaws initiative. Among the generous donations given to the sale are the remaining contents of the former Goshen Flea market as well items from the Red Roof Trading post. As well, the donations from family and friends have been overwhelming, report organizers. The sale will start at noon on Friday until traffic lessens and then will

restart Saturday around 8 a.m. Bailey Plunkett of Renfrew is raising money for a mission trip to build a school. As well as sharing proceeds of the yard sale, she will be holding a barbecue, selling hotdogs for the two days. Along with the yard sale fundraiser, EmptiesforPaws will have a dropoff for empty bottles. Volunteers have had a new drop-off bin built and will unveil it on the weekend. Artist Annette Lemieux Parent painted the door of the bin for free. The Mini Mart will be a new permanent location for the bin to allow people to drop off empties at any time. Proceeds from the empties go to Valley Ani-

Jump into summer Avalon Ranch owners Mary and Todd Spurrell, along with Feral and Hoyt, show off their respective second- and first-place ribbons from the Jump into Summer Canine Watersports Competition at their ranch near Renfrew. The two-day competition attracted 42 competitors, spectators, and some who were brave enough to take the leap for the first time. “When we have these events they’re always open to the public and free to attend,” said Mary. The Spurrells run a dog training facility (watersports, agility and more).

Tips to keep your dog safe in a heat wave Summer is here and the weather is heating up. Help keep your dog safe and healthy during a heat wave with these tips. Watch out for heatstroke. Symptoms include panting, lethargy, drooling, fever, vomiting and collapse. If you think your dog may have heatstroke, get the vet ASAP — the condition can cause permanent organ damage and death. Breeds with shorter noses (such as Pugs, Shih Tzus, Pekingese, Bulldogs and Boxers) as well as very young and senior dogs are especially vulnerable. Give your dog extra water. You will need to refill your dog’s water bowl more often than usual on very hot days. Offer your dog several ways to cool off. Leave a fan on in a place where your dog can sit in front of it, add some ice cubes to his water or offer him a cool treat. (A Kong that’s stuffed with wet food or peanut butter, then frozen, is cooling and a great way to keep your dog entertained.) Never leave your dog alone inside a car. Even with the windows cracked, the inside of a car can

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP heat up to 120 degrees in a matter of minutes on a warm day. And leaving the air conditioning on is no guarantee that your dog will be safe. Take your walks in the morning or evening. The intense heat of midday can overwhelm your dog during a walk. Exercise your dog during the cooler hours and, if your dog is in the sun for an extended period of time apply doggie sunscreen. Don’t leave your dog alone outside for more than a few minutes. Even in the shade, a dog exposed

to extreme heat and humidity is at risk for heatstroke. Avoid hot sidewalks. Your dog’s paws can easily become burned on hot surfaces, including pavement, blacktop and sand. Groom your dog regularly. A clean, untangled coat can help ward off summer skin problems and help your dog stay cool. Shaving long, thick matted coats will help any dog feel more comfortable in a heat wave. Speak to your local grooming professional for advice. Be alert for coolant leaking from your vehicle. Dogs are attracted to the sweet taste of coolant and just a small amount can make your dog sick or even cause death. If you believe your dog may have ingested coolant, take him to the vet right away. Use common sense. If it’s too hot for you, than it is definitely too hot for your pet. Stay safe!

Missing berry pie becomes a mystery for Mother


Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

was sure hoppin’ mad. Well, Father came in and was as surprised as Mother, and swore up and down he hadn’t laid eyes on the pie since going to bed. Mother pointed a finger at each of my three brothers, who all vowed they had never touched the berry pie. Father had the nerve to suggest maybe Mother had put it someplace, or maybe Earl, who sometimes walked in his sleep had taken it off the bake table. “Well, it’s gone, and I’ll find out who took it, and there’ll be hang to pay, I can tell you,” she said. The day passed and there was still no sign of the pie, and the remaining pie had to be

sliced in small wedges to go around that night for supper, and no one had yet owned up to taking the missing one, plate and all. Well, the next morning, was a repeat of the morning before. Mother was yelling at the top of her lungs to get Father from the barn at once! Then we saw what she was yelling about. There on the bake table was the empty pie plate, spotlessly clean, shining like a new nickel, with a note written on the back of a cigarette box thanking the lady of the house for the best pie he had ever eaten! Shivers ran up and down my back when we finally realized a tramp had jumped the freight train that passed through our farm, climbed the West Hill, and came up to our house in the dead of night. Father said the smell of the berry pie was more than he could ignore, and he made off with it, pie plate and all. He had the good manners to wash the tin in the river, and return it to our kitchen, putting it exactly where he had found it the night before.




Submit your story or photo

Father, sitting in his chair with the Ottawa Farm Journal folded on his lap, was eyeing the two berry pies Mother had made and where they were now sitting on the bake table at the back door. She was at the old pine kitchen table, and without taking her eyes off her diaries, she told Father his bedtime snack would not include a slice of the berry pies. “There’s a couple sticky buns in the cupboard you can have,” she said. It always amazed me how Mother could see and know everything anyone was doing or thinking without benefit of raising her eyes! Just before we all headed for bed, Mother covered the pies with two freshly washed and ironed flour-bag tea towels. The wonderful sweet smell followed us upstairs. Well, what a commotion greeted us first thing in the morning! We could hear Mother yelling at the top of her lungs, ordering Everett to fetch Father from the barn at once! “He has taken a pie, and probably has eaten most of it by now, and will expect to have a full breakfast when he comes in.” She

Well, that had Mother ranting about unlocked doors! No one in Northcote locked their doors. Ours didn’t even have a key! For a couple of nights Mother propped a chair under the doorknob, but Father convinced her the tramps meant no harm. He said he knew they often slept in the barn. And they were hungry...always hungry. Riding the rails was their life, and getting a meal or a snack wherever they could, kept them alive. After that, Mother often left a paper bag of sandwiches on the back stoop in a pail with a lid on it. It didn’t take long for the tramps to know they could come over the West Hill, day or night, and there would always be something there to fill their aching stomachs. Like so much else in those lean Depression years, the tramps were simply a symbol of the times. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?
