Social housing wait-list grows Hundreds waiting up to four years for shelter Derek Dunn email@example.com

News â€“ Hundreds of people in town are waiting up to four years for social housing, Arnprior council learned at its Aug. 26 meeting. Two people from Renfrew County Housing Corporation (RCHC), social services director David Anderson and general manager Carol Neill, shared statistical and other information in a bid to bring councillors up to speed on what the non-proďŹ t organization contributes to the town and area. On the positive side it brings provincial money, via county government, to town for low income people. It even pays water bills and taxes totalling $474,966 in 2012 alone; the former assumed by RCHC just last year. It also recently brought staff into an upgraded building on McGonigal
Street West a few months ago. On the negative side, RCHC often struggles for funding and canâ€™t get higher levels of government to commit to a stable, long-term plan. That leads to situations such as the 224 applicants waiting up to four years (in the case of one-bedroom units) for rent-geared-to-income housing. In the county last year there were 1,117 people on a waiting list for rent-geared-to-income housing, up from 657 just four years earlier. The number of move-outs has declined from 171 in 2008 to 158 last year. Coun. Dan Lynch asked what can be done to help people get moved out of social housing. â€œThey do it on their own, when they are ready to make that next step,â€? Neill said. See ARNPRIOR Page 3
Last first day Arnprior District High School students Sam Caesar and Chris Gervais, who mourns the end of summer holidays with a pretend tear, are all set for the first day of their final year of high school. Renfrew County students returned to school Tuesday. Changes this year include the addition of all-day kindergarten at A.J. Charbonneau, Walter Zadow and John XXIII schools in Arnprior.

Community â€“ The Terry Fox Run is alive and well in Arnprior. Organizer Stephen Dodd is thrilled with the support heâ€™s received for the event, which will take place on Sunday,
Sept 15 at the fairgrounds in Arnprior. Funding for cancer research is a cause important to all, said Dodd. â€œI donâ€™t know of one family thatâ€™s not affected by cancer and itâ€™s just an important cause to support,â€? said Dodd, who took over running the local event when long-time organizer Rita
Clouthierâ€™s health prevented her from going forward in the role. â€œRitaâ€™s been doing a great job of it for many, many years,â€? said Dodd. But when she couldnâ€™t continue, the local event was in danger of closing. â€œI said, â€˜We canâ€™t let that happen,â€™â€? said Dodd. And heâ€™s had plenty of support. â€œWeâ€™re just trying to revive it and re-
build it. We deďŹ nitely want to get participation up again this year,â€? he said. â€œPosters are out, signs are up and by all indicators, I think that numbers should be up. â€œSince last yearâ€™s run, people have come forward and said, â€˜How can I help?â€™â€? See PICK UP Page 3

To kick off the Arnprior Terry Fox Run event, Oâ€™Brien Theatre will host a special viewing of the Terry Fox movie on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 7:30 p.m. â€œIf people cannot walk or run they definitely can support the foundation by viewing the movie that night,â€? said Dodd. Admission is $7 for advance tickets and $10 at the door. Advance tickets are available so far at M&M Meat Shops and at the theatre. Dodd credited theatre owner Kevin Marshall for his generous support. SUNDAY
The Arnprior fairgrounds will be abuzz with activity for the run on Sunday, Sept. 15. Music, a barbecue and various challenges will be apart of the fun. The McNab-Braeside Fire Department has issued a challenge to Arnpriorâ€™s department to get involved and see which force comes out on top. â€œItâ€™s really nice to see that kind of community involvement,â€? he said. â€œHats off to Karen Barsoski, fire prevention officer for McNab-Braeside,â€? said Dodd. Barsoski participated in the

This year sheâ€™s involved in an off-site run, he explained, but her fundraising efforts will still
benefit the local run. â€œWeâ€™re trying to get some other enforcement agencies involved, too,â€? said Dodd. The Terry Fox Run is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the barbecue is free for participants. People not involved in the run can still come out and support the event, cheer on the runners and buy a burger, with proceeds still going to the cause. Dodd reminded those wishing to participate that thereâ€™s no requirement for how much participants run or walk. â€œEven if people want to come out and pick up a pledge form, pledge $10 and then walk once or twice around the track, thatâ€™s great,â€? said Dodd. â€œAnd, of course, if you want to run five kilometres, thatâ€™s great, too.â€? For those who want to monitor or measure their distance, going around the track twice is equivalent to a half-mile. On Aug. 26, Arnprior Council passed a motion declaring Sept. 15 Terry Fox Run Day in Arnprior. Terry Fox Run pledge forms are available online at terryfox. org and at various locations around town, including Arnprior town hall, the Arnprior Public Library, and Gold Bar on John Street in Arnprior.

Arnprior has 260 of Renfrew Countyâ€™s 978 units Continued from front
Overall, there are 978 subsidized rental units in the county. Arnpriorâ€™s share is 260. Pembroke, with a population three times greater, has 351. The town of Renfrew has 229. Units in Arnprior are apartments at 229/231 Albert St., 8 Burwash St., and 63 Russell St.; McLachlin Heights single homes in â€˜The Avenuesâ€™ behind The Beer Store; row housing at 200 Caruso St. and 26 Spruce Cres.; and duplexes on Wilfred/Allan, Sullivan Crescent, Wilfred/Edward, and 228 Edward St. Many were built 30 years ago or more, though the county has spent
money upgrading most. â€œWeâ€™ve spent a lot of time, money and effort on this over the last few years,â€? Anderson said. Coun. Lynn Grinstead asked what is being done to help, say, a single mother with kids that could be grown and out of the home before she obtains housing. Anderson said RCHC has been responsible for â€œbricks and mortarâ€? in the past, but is moving toward assisting tenants in other ways. â€œPeople donâ€™t want to deal with five or six agencies. They want to go to one,â€? he said. After the presentation, Anderson and Neill said they didnâ€™t bring information
about who lives in social housing because of privacy issues. However, there is a perception among some in the public that social housing often abused by young men too lazy to find legitimate work. They said many people in social housing work lowpaying or season jobs, some suffer mental or physical disabilities, and still others have fled domestic violence. The latter are the only ones give priority for housing. â€œWe have people that maybe were working full time, but are now out of work,â€? Anderson said. â€œThey could be anyone. People who house with us are from all walks of life. You canâ€™t stereotype them.â€?

The families of 10 veterans being recognized by having Arnprior streets named after them receive certificates at a special Arnprior council meeting. Taking part in the ceremony are Coun. Dan Lynch, left, Mayor David Reid, right, and veterans and families members of Bert Hall, Desmond Trudeau, McGregor Scobie, Tom Gavinski, Gord Fergusson, Mona McBride, Leo Moskos, Bert Tourangeau, Bill Tearle and Leonard Spinks show off the signs graced with a poppy.

Ten more veterans honoured with Arnprior street names
STORE HOURS HERE Drive, 264 Herrick email address
News â€“ While Arnprior council has agreed that all new streets in town donâ€™t necessarily have to be named after veterans, the family names of those who served Canada in uniform will still be strongly considered. So far, council has chosen 23 veterans to be recognized with street names in town. The town signs will include a poppy to indicate the streets are named after veterans. At a special meeting earlier this year in the Arnprior public library, town council officially recognized 10 veterans who have had streets named after them. The 10 veterans are Bert Hall, Desmond Trudeau, McGregor Scobie, Tom Gavinski, Gord Fergusson, Mona McBride, Leo Moskos, Bert Tourangeau, Bill Tearle and Leonard Spinks. Several family members of the veterans were present to see them honoured by council. Calling the session a â€œvery special occasion,â€? Mayor David Reid explained that the streetnaming program was initiated by Arnprior in 2007. The idea is to promote public awareness of what the veterans did and show appreciation for their service to community and country. The names are compiled by the Arnprior Legion and, after being checked by the Renfrew County 911 system to ensure they arenâ€™t duplicates, are approved by council. The first four streets to be named under the program were approved in 2009. They were named after Vince Evans, Moe Robillard, Allan Bond and Bev Shaw. At the special meeting, Mayor Reid announced the names of the next 10 veterans to be honoured and presented a plaque and certificate

of recognition for each one. Among the family members present were Hallâ€™s daughter Cathy Burgess, Trudeauâ€™s niece Mary Epps, Scobieâ€™s daughter Sandra Hall, Gavinskiâ€™s son Dan, Fergussonâ€™s son Mike, Moskosâ€™ daughter Kathy Burgess, Spinksâ€™ daughter Nancy Stavenow, and Tourangeauâ€™s sons Shane and Steve and daughter Joanne Marcellus. The presentations were photographed and videotaped for the town by area historian Jim Austin, who thanked council â€œfor acknowledging those who gave so much.â€? A short biography of the veterans was presented for to go along with the 10 street names. They read as follows: BERT HALL STREET
Bertram Hall was born on May 3, 1914 to Harry and Lillian Hall. He served as director of recreation for the Town of Arnprior from 1949 to 1979 and was a physical education teacher at Arnprior District High School for 15 years. He was a life member of Arnprior Legion Branch #174 (66 years), the founder of the Arnprior Senior Citizens Club, a member of the Air Force Association of Canada (the Wing in Renfrew) and a life member of the Directors of Municipal Recreation of Ontario. In recognition of Hallâ€™s substantial accomplishments in recreation, the Town of Arnprior renamed Arena â€˜Aâ€™ at the Nick Smith Centre to â€˜The Bert Hall Arenaâ€™. See STREETS, Page 4

DESMOND TRUDEAU DRIVE
Desmond Joseph Trudeau was born in Arnprior on Nov. 13, 1931 to Edward and Elizabeth Trudeau. He attended St. Joseph’s Separate and Arnprior District High schools. As a youth he was a member of the Lanark and Renfrew Regiment. Trudeau enlisted with the Royal Canadian Regiment on Nov. 12, 1951 and died in Korea on Jan. 12, 1953 at the age of 21. Trudeau is the only soldier from Arnprior who died on Korean soil. He is one of 378 Canadians buried in the United Nations Cemetery in Busan, South Korea. The cemetery was created as a tribute to all those who laid down their lives in combating aggression and upholding peace and freedom. Trudeau earned the Korea Medal and United Nations Service Medal Korea. MCGREGOR SCOBIE CRESCENT
McGregor Alexander Scobie was born in Glasgow Station on June 3, 1925 to John and Margaret Scobie. He was educated in a oneroom school house and attended in Renfrew High School. Although underage, both he and friend Harold Barr signed up for the war effort, were assigned to the Stormont Dundas Glengarry Highlanders, and after some training were shipped off to Aldershot, England. Scobie participated in D-Day on June 6, 1944 and less than two weeks later was wounded. He returned to Arnprior in 1944 where he met a local young lady, Lillian, who was to become his wife. Scobie has worked his entire life in McNab Township and at the Civil Defence College in Arnprior and is considered to be one of the ‘pillars’ of the community. For his achievements in the Town and Legion, he was awarded a Royal Canadian Legion Life membership. The Scobies are blessed with two daughters, Sandra Hall and Susan Gillan. He lives at the Arnprior Villa. Incidentally, McGregor Scobie Crescent is just a couple of blocks from Campbell Drive where McGregor and Lillian lived for over 45 years. Scobie is in possession of a photograph from the Second World War that depicts a group of
soldiers storming one of the beaches on D-Day. One of the young men had just exited one of the boats, was up to his chest in the water carrying a bicycle, headed for the beach and an uncertain future. That young man was Scobie. “Remembrance Day takes on a new meaning when standing next to a veteran as he looks at himself in a photograph from the war. It is important to remember, thanks to these sacrifices, we can all follow our dreams.” His decorations include the 1939-1945 Star, France Germany Star, Defence Medal, Victory Medal and Canadian Volunteer Service Medal with Clasp. TOM GAVINSKI STREET
Thomas Alexander Gavinski was born in Renfrew on Aug. 27, 1924 to Alexander and Veronica Gavinski. On Jan 15, 1939, he enlisted in the Lanark and Renfrew Scottish Regiment. In 1943 he transferred to the Regular Force 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion and fought with the 6th British Airborne Division. He returned to Canada and enlisted in the 178 Battery 59th LAA Regiment Renfrew and retired at the rank of captain in October 1972. Gavinski was responsible for bringing home a Second World War French poem entitled ‘The Paths to Freedom’. The poem was given to him from a resident of France who expressed to him ‘his tribute to freedom’. Gavinski was an active member of the Knights of Columbus and the local Royal Canadian Legion. He died on Dec. 4, 2004 at the age of 80. His decorations include the 1939-1945 Star, France Germany Star, Defence Medal, Canadian Volunteer Service Medal and clasp, War Medal, and Canadian Forces Decoration with clasp. GORDON FERGUSSON PLACE
Gordon Fergusson was born in Arnprior in 1925 to Etta and Thomas Fergusson. He lived his whole life in the area, raised a family and worked for 50 years for Kenwood Mills. He loved the small town and was very active in his son’s activities including ball and hockey. He had many friends through work and his association with the Arnprior Legion Branch. He loved to laugh and share his stories with friends and listening to bagpipe music was one of his passions.

A short duration, but a huge part of his life was when he served in the Second World War. He was anxious to do his part for his country, so excited that he tried to enlist in 1940 and 1941 but couldn’t as he was underage. As soon as he could in 1943, he enlisted. He became a private for the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion and fought with the 6th British Airborne Division at Normandy and couldn’t have been more proud. He loved the special bond, like brothers fighting side by side. His decorations included the 1939-1945 Star, France Germany Star, Defence Medal, Canadian Volunteer Service Medal and clasp, the War Medal, and Canadian Forces Decoration with clasp. He was wounded in battle and had to return to Canada, where he picked up his previous life, marrying Mildred Presley, having a family and returning to work at Kenwood Mills. Fergusson had four grandchildren of which he was so proud. Knowing there will be a street
named after him in the town that he loved, as a legacy to his grandchildren, would have made him proud. He died July 7, 2003 at the age of 79. MONA MCBRIDE DRIVE
Mona Ethelyn McBride was the daughter of W.J. and Ethel McBride and lived most of her life in Fitzroy Harbour, attended Fitzroy Harbour Public School and graduated from Arnprior High School. She was considered to be a very active person who was quite involved in the Ottawa Presbytery Young Peoples Union. She enlisted in the Canadian Army Woman Corps, and at the time of her death, June 3, 1944 held the rank of Sergeant. She is buried in Arnprior at the Protestant Cemetery.

Suspicious stranger sparks new round of pet-snatching fears John Carter John.email@example.com
News – Pet owners are being warned to be vigilant in the wake of several dog and cat disappearances in the Ottawa Valley this summer. There have also been unconfirmed reports that someone has left poison in dog toys at Red Pine Bay in Braeside.
The alarm bells were set off again last week when a dog-owner reported to police that a stranger had tried to pick up her dog in Almonte. The report has prompted the Lanark OPP to issue a news release asking for the public’s help in identifying the man. The Ottawa and Valley Lost Pets Network and Hopeful Hearts Dog Rescue organizations have been using social media to circulate the OPP release and urge pet owners to
is n h e t ek e w
Grand Prix Race Weekend September 6–8, 2013
be on the lookout for dog snatchers. The Ottawa and Valley Lost Pets Network has photographs of 35 missing dogs and 59 lost cats on its Facebook site. The Ottawa-based Friendly Giant Dog Rescue group has been distributing a handout in several communities, mainly at pet food stores, suggesting there is a dognapping ring at work in the Arnprior, West Carleton, Carleton Place and Almonte areas. Although OPP say they have no reason to believe a dog-fighting ring is operating in this area, the Friendly Giant warning charges that dogs are being stolen and used for bait for dog fight training. Earlier this summer, there were rumours that dog fights were being secretly organized in the Perth and/or Calabogie areas. There have been numerous reports of pets gone missing this summer, including as many as a dozen cats in Constance Bay. Two Puggles (PugBeagle) that disappeared from the Fitzroy area June 22 are still missing, although there have been possible sightings in Perth and Carleton Place. As well, cats have gone missing in Arnprior, but some may be linked to a fisher reportedly lurking in the Alicia and McLachlin street area.
OPP report the Almonte incident occurred Aug. 24 at about 1:30 p.m. when a woman was walking her dog in the area of Main and Martin streets near Mac’s Milk. She stopped to play ball with her dog on a vacant lot. When the dog chased the ball to the edge of the lot, she noticed a man with rubber gloves and a piece of rope. The owner felt the man was trying to take her dog, report police. The man told her that he thought the dog was a stray and was going to take it animal control. He left in a burgundy red mini-van with a roof rack. The owner thought his behaviour was odd and later called police. The man is described as being in his early 60s, about 6 feet tall with grey hair. He was wearing long pants, rubber boots and rubber gloves. If anyone has any information about this incident, they are asked to contact the Lanark County OPP at 1888-310-1122 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Pet rescue organizations are urging pet-owners to not leave their animals unattended. They also ask people who find animals to ensure that they are handing over the pets to their rightful owners as some dog-nappers have been using found pet advertisements to take dogs.
Curbing aggressive salespeople News – Local OPP have issued a news release reminding residents that they can complain to police if harassed by aggressive salespeople. Under the Safe Streets Act it is an offence in Ontario to solicit in an aggressive manner, says the release. The definition of aggressive includes “to continue to solicit a person in a persistent manner after the person has responded negatively to the solicitation.” OPP say they frequently receive calls from residents complaining about door-to-door salespeople who don’t seem to want to take ‘no’ for an answer. Residents should also be wary of door-to-door salespeople who claim they are entitled to enter the home,

It’s about time Taser use by police expanded: MPP News – Allowing all front-line police ofﬁcers to carry Tasers is long overdue, says RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski. Yakabuski, the Ontario PC critic for Community Safety, was responding, in a news release Aug. 27, to an announcement by the provincial government that all ofﬁcers will be permitted to carry Tasers. “It’s unfortunate that the government has delayed this decision for so long.” Yakabuski “Equipping front-line police ofﬁcers with Tasers will not only help keep the public safe, it will also improve the safety of ofﬁcers by providing them with a non-lethal option when
dealing with volatile and unpredictable situations.” The announcement came in the wake of a controversial shooting in Toronto by a police ofﬁcer of a man waving a knife on a street car. The ofﬁcer has been charged with second-degree murder. The Ontario PC party has long supported providing front-line police ofﬁcers with nonlethal options. Speaking to the Police Association of Ontario (PAO) in November 2009, Leader Tim Hudak said: “A government I lead will support expanding the use of Tasers by police ofﬁcers
THE TOWNSHIP OF LANARK HIGHLANDS
in our province. These are vital tools that can defuse extremely high risk situations using non-lethal force that might otherwise require the use of ﬁrearms.” Police chiefs and associations have been calling for the expanded use of Tasers for years but despite the need, the Liberal government has restricted their availability to a select few supervising and specialized ofﬁcers, says Yakabuski. As a result, police ofﬁcers in Ontario have been denied access to non-lethal options that have been available to their counterparts in Quebec, British Columbia, Alberta, Nova Sco-
tia and New Brunswick, as well as the RCMP. Yakabuski noted that the Ministry completed a review of Taser use in 2009. As part of the review, the government was advised that seven inquest juries in Ontario between 2005 and 2009 recommended that all front line ofﬁcers be able to use Tasers because they were most likely to encounter violent situations. “The Ontario PC party has consistently supported the use of non-lethal options for the last four years,” said Yakabuski. “It’s more than a little disappointing that it has taken the Liberal government this long to come around to our view on this issue.”

McNab-Braeside tax increase defensible Mayor Mary Campbell all but literally pulls her hair out when it comes to property taxes in the Township of McNab-Braeside. She says she didnâ€™t run her last election on raising taxes, yet when all was said and done residents in the municipality paid an additional 8.3 per cent in taxes this year. â€œWe canâ€™t afford another year like last year,â€? she said at a recent council meeting, sounding exasperated. Which is why her council has refused to pay a lump sum from the tax base to cover recreation and library services in neighbouring municipalities. But is the property tax burden really so onerous in the township? The 8.3 per cent sounds like a lot in these days of lowered wage expectations, but an argument could be made that property taxes in McNabBraeside need to go up even further. The township pays the sixth lowest taxes among municipalities in Renfrew County. The county itself has one of the lowest tax rates of any in the province. That means folks in the township are paying some of the lowest property taxes in the province. The Town of Renfrew pays the lionâ€™s share for its library and recreation services, but while McNab-Braeside also contributes, the townâ€™s residents pay the highest taxes in the county. Arnprior residents, too, pay among the
highest property taxes in the county, one of the reasons the town is asking rural neighbours to contribute more for shared services. Seems fair. According to the 2013 municipal tax rate, the township pays $419.08 per $100,000 market value of property. In Arnprior itâ€™s almost double, at $793.77. The township can afford to contribute more tax money to services. At some point Mayor Campbell and others on council who ran on a minimal to no tax increase promise have to come to the realization that taxes must go up, perhaps significantly. The township held off paying for legislated essential services last year on fire and roads. Admirably, council refused to give itself a 2 per cent rate-of-inflation pay hike, too. But that doesnâ€™t change the fact that the township is falling behind in paying its bills, all in the name of promises to keep taxes low. Sometimes a politician has to break promises in order to do the right thing. Council would be wise to start preparing residents for a tax increase now. Itâ€™s easy to win an election on the promise of low taxes. Itâ€™s not so easy to realistically run an effective municipality
Service costs too high for township to issue blank cheque To the Editor: Opinion - Re: the McNab-Braeside questionnaire. I have just finished reading the letter to the editor (Chronicle-Guide, Aug. 29) with regard to the questionnaire put out by the McNab-Braeside Council and signed by McNab-Braeside Residents for Reading and Recreation. After reading this, I would like to say thank you to the councillors for standing up for what is right and not being cavalier with the peopleâ€™s money and bowing down to pressure and threats. I totally agree that having the library and the recreation facility shared is the best idea. Having said that, the payments for the use of these facilities is absolutely outrageous. Just figure out what percentage of the total tax base or just the dollar figure that is being asked for to have access to these facilities and being used by how many? It is ridiculous and McNab-Braeside canâ€™t afford it. I also wonder why Arnprior taxpayers have not stood up and made their council be accountable for the money they must be pouring into these two facilities. Who are these people howling to â€œjust pay it.â€?

I do not have any insight into how these facilities are run, but obviously they need to tighten their belt, make changes and bring down the cost. Second, if they are asking for huge sums to be given to them, they need to supply proper usage figures to the people they are expecting the money from and they havenâ€™t. What they are asking for should be proportionate to the usage. This is not happening. What they are asking on the questionnaire is do you use it and want to support these facilities for yourself or for someone else? Do you want it added to your tax base, which equates to, how do you want us to spend your money? Not overly complicated. Going into debt or stopping other things that are needed in the community is not a solution. How many people do you know that just pay a bill and not know what they are paying for? It is time that people realized there are some things you just canâ€™t afford. You canâ€™t have everything is a simple fact of life. If you canâ€™t afford it, you canâ€™t have it. I know that it is very expensive to put your child into hockey. If you can afford to put

him/her into hockey, then you can afford to pay the user fee yourself. If your child needs access to the library, then pay for the privilege. I know there are always hard luck cases, but I also know that the municipality will help these people. For the most part, the people who attend the meetings and push to have the taxpayers foot the bill can afford to pay their own user fee. Isnâ€™t that usually the case. They would much prefer to spread the grief to everyone. Also, because it has been done for years doesnâ€™t make it right. To hand over thousands of dollars and not have any say in how these facilities are run, not know who uses them, not have any added value to the largest portion of the taxpayers is pure lunacy and Iâ€™m happy to say that our council has not fallen into that category. On the other hand, if the questionnaires come back and the people want their money spent this way, it will be done. Thatâ€™s how democracy works.

Thanks for rescuing turtle To the editor: Opinion - Today (Aug. 22) my husband and I were strolling around our Campbellbrook Village neighbourhood where new homes are in the process of being built. There was a huge deep hole that the Town of Arnprior had dug for water, sewers, etc. and a large snapping turtle had fallen down into it and had no way of getting out. I went home and called the town office and got put through to the correct department immediately and within 10 minutes there were two town workers here and rescued the poor critter. I know a turtle in a hole isnâ€™t a big deal, but it is nice to know that there are caring people in our town who respect nature. My thanks to the turtle rescuers! Suzy Young Arnprior

To the Editor: Opinion - In my memories of the 1930s and early 1940s in Arnprior, horses were an integral part of that era â€“ a sign of times past. Being utilized in so many ways, they became a common sight as most deliveries were done using horsedrawn wagons or sleighs. Businesses also beneďŹ ted directly. The ďŹ rst deliveries that I recall were by the McLachlin Lumber Company, using a dump-cart to deliver a load of â€˜buttonsâ€™. These were short end pieces of pine lumber of different lengths and thickness, which could be used in â€˜summerâ€™ kitchen stoves.

Endangered Species Act changes sorely needed: Muzzi Steve Newman firstname.lastname@example.org
News - Renfrew County hasn’t been shy about telling the provincial government that the Endangered Species Act needs fixing. At the Aug. 28 meeting of county council, Renfrew County forestry manager Jeff Muzzi outlined the obstacles or potential obstacles faced by landowners whose property is inhabited by species at risk. There are 48 species at risk in Renfrew County, but that R0012216466_0725
number could increase to 66, said Muzzi. “It’s getting very difficult to manage forests and private property with the increasing restrictions of the Endangered Species Act,” said Muzzi. “This is an issue county council staff has been dealing with for about five years,” said Renfrew County chief administrative officer Jim Hutton. “It’s a very concerning issue. The key for me is balance, and this (legislation) is way out of balance,” added Hutton, who said county staff is finalizing a report on recommended changes to the ESA this month. “We feel the recent changes to the ESA were a step in the right direction, but they didn’t go far enough … We’re not saying endangered species should be wiped out, but it (protection for them) is out of balance.” The county is also taking a scientific approach by speaking to biologists who have concerns about the ESA, noted Hutton. Renfrew County species with regulated habitat (which comes with greater land-use restrictions) are the barn owl, pale-bellied frost lichen, wood turtle, eastern grey ratsnake,
eastern hog-nosed snake, fivelined skink (lizard) and bogbean buckmoth. Local species with general habitat descriptions (GHDs) must also be protected, although related restrictions are generally less prohibitive. They are protected according to three separate categories, including the more restrictive category one. If a species is a confirmed inhabitant, Muzzi said this will likely trigger a process that at least temporarily halts activity on the land. As of June 13, species with GHDs were ginseng, the barn swallow, blanding’s turtle, bobolink, chimney swift, eastern meadowlark, eastern whippoor-will and butternut. Some of these species, including the blanding’s turtle, may be identified as species at risk, thus resulting in more restrictions on property owners. Muzzi wonders how the blanding’s turtle can be a species at risk, when he has about 60 photos of them. He also draws the same conclusion about many identified species at risk. “I have an issue with all of them because I don’t think the science is very good,” Muzzi

protect all species, that is not realistic. “Obviously, human interaction has some effect … but this position on private property is not justified. It is a huge imposition and of course the rules are being made by people who reside in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). Well, there’s not too many endangered species down there because, with their concrete buildings and highways, there’s no species at all. It’s easy for them to say we should protect what they’ve already destroyed. “So, this is poorly, poorly drafted legislation, not very well thought out, and (it) directly affects the ability of the hardworking men and women of Renfrew County at the ground level.” Meanwhile, Muzzi says he’s hoping the provincial government offers a receptive ear to the county’s forthcoming report on recommendations to the Endangered Species Act. The big focus is on making the act workable, said Muzzi. The report is scheduled to be presented to the county’s property and development committee and county council in September.

told The Mercury. “I can go down to my dock on the Bonnechere River and hear whip-poor-wills every evening. They’re less frequent than they once were, but they’re not infrequent.” In the case of ginseng, Muzzi says regulations allow hiking and non-motorized vehicle use on existing recreational trials. Incompatible activities, according to the regulations, are activities that reduce canopy cover or understory vegetation, and alterations to drainage. In the case of bobolinks, which Muzzi says are a common sighting in the county, incompatible activities on property they inhabit may include the conversion of hay to cash crops. After Muzzi’s presentation, Deep River Mayor David Thompson weighed in on the issue with strong language. “If there’s anything here that is endangered, it is common sense,” said Thompson. “This really is beyond comprehension. Thousands of species have become extinct every year. That’s the way it works … evolution. And for us to think we have some super power to

News - Giant hogweed continues to grow in eastern Ontario, but the extent of its growth has been somewhat exaggerated. The same can’t be said about wild parsnip, another toxic plant that has reached the region. So says Renfrew County forestry manager and weed inspector Jeff Muzzi, who regular receives emailed images or calls wondering if particular plants are of concern. Muzzi says giant hogweed and wild parsnip can burn skin and cause temporary blindness, but Muzzi says giant parsnip is a bigger concern for at least two reasons. It has the same negative effect on human skin, and there’s a lot more of it around the county. “It’s spreading at an alarming rate,” said Muzzi. Several plants of giant hogweed were eradicated by the Renfrew County forestry department a couple of years ago in and around White Lake, Waba, Pembroke and Matawatchan. And more recently, a section of giant hogweed was identified on private property near Braeside. “Our policy is to get rid of it, but there’s no obligation to do so. It is a poisonous, nasty weed,” said Muzzi. Positive identification of giant hogweed in recent months have been rare, says Muzzi, who says photos
of suspected giant hogweed can be emailed to him at firstname.lastname@example.org Many photos sent to him turn out to be of cow parsnip, and not giant hogweed. Despite its negative effect on human skin, Muzzi says the plant is not a major concern if people stay away from it. The good news is that repeated cuttings eventually kill wild parsnip, says Muzzi. He says giant hogweed can be more problematic because its roots can reach more than a metre and a half, while the plant can reach heights of two metres. Eradicating either plant also requires proper care, by following certain safety guidelines, says Muzzi, like covering one’s face, arms and hands with rubber gloves and proper facial protection. “The danger is weed-whacking because you get the sap on your skin,” says Muzzi. Also, seeds from disturbed giant hogweed plants can sprout within a few weeks. Wild parsnip resembles the dill plant and can grow up to a metre tall. Meanwhile, new species have entered, or may soon enter, Renfrew County and create more concerns for residents and visitors. Garlic mustard, which has some nasty effects on skin, has been sighted near Deep River. And Dog-Strangling Vine, which has been seen in Northumberland County, could be headed this way.

Arnprior woman among 16 on monument for victims of violence News - The Renfrew County Women’s Monument, a tribute to women in Renfrew County who have been murdered and abused by men, including an Arnprior victim. Glenda Kohlsmith of Arnprior who was killed in 1994, is one of 16 women recognized. The monument, a public art installation, is the culmination of more than five years of meeting, consultation, planning and fundraising undertaken by the Women’s Monument Committee, a special working group of the Renfrew County Committee for Abused Women. The official unveiling of the monument will take place Saturday, Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. at the monument site in Petawawa. Situated along the Emerald Necklace Trail between Algonquin and Harry Streets, the site is within view of the rapids on the Petawawa River. The monument was designed by Cormac artist/blacksmith Lydia Vanderstaal and Mary Crnkovich owner/operator of Touch Stone Masonry in Killaloe. The monument will provide a place of sanctuary where visitors can sit, reflect, and remember the 16 Renfrew County women who will be named on the monument. The Women’s Monument Committee is planning the official unveiling and are inviting surviving family members to be involved as the monument is dedicated to the 16 women we have lost. This dedication is intended to be a time of reflection and honouring of each of the women. Family members and/or friends are invited to attend and to consider contributing to the dedication. This could involve bringing a photograph of the woman they have lost. Perhaps a family member would like some time to speak about their loved one. There will also be a time when family or
community members will bring forth photographs and candles in honour of each woman. Family or friends may choose to be involved at this point. The Women’s Monument Committee has been contacted by a number of families who have read about the monument and wish to be involved with the project. However, there are many women who will be named at the dedication that we know very little about. “If you are a family member, neighbour, or friend of any of the women who will be named on the monument (listed below) and you have not already been in touch with the committee please consider reaching out. “Please help us to celebrate, grieve and honour these women lost to us.” • Margaret Richardson of Pembroke who died in 1969, • Loretta Ostroskie of Wilno who died in 1972, • Delores Lenser of Golden Lake who died in 1973, • Charlotte Wagner of Golden Lake who died in 1973 • Marysia Buraczewski of Renfrew who died in 1981 • Maybelle Timms of Pembroke who died in 1982 • Karen Clancy of Pembroke who died in 1983 • Joceline Florent of Eganville who died in 1987 • Ann Marie Bloskie of Barry’s Bay who died in 1991 • Glenda Kohlsmith of Arnprior who died in 1994 • Wanda Scully of Petawawa who died in

Cell competition heats up Earn Extra Money! Patricia Leboeuf
News – With American-based wireless company Verizon encroaching on Canadian borders, the Canadian ‘Big Three’ are pressing back with their Fair For Canada campaign. Bell, Rogers and TELUS have initiated the campaign which claims that the American presence in the market will undermine “Canadians’ ability to connect to one another, threaten Canadian jobs, and raise significant concerns regarding privacy and security.” This opinion isn’t shared by all. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant believes the added competition will be beneficial to Canadians. “I’m not for that particular company per say but generally speaking I am for competition,” said Gallant. “Competition does lead to lower prices.” In the past, people were at the mercy of the incumbent companies who were able to charge miscellaneous charges such as access fees at will without opposition. It wasn’t until other smaller companies entered the market that these fees were challenged and often removed. She believes that some of that some of the allegations brought forth from the Big Three campaign aren’t completely truthful. “There is the allegation that a big U.S. company would bubble up the existing incumbents, but there are rules in terms of what percentage a foreign owned company can have access to in Canada,” said Gallant. “They are limited to a certain percentage of the market. That is forcing them to team up with smaller partners which is what we want to see.”
The allegation that it would remove jobs from the Canadian market “would be determined once the dust settles”, but many of the Big Three do not always employee Canadians to man their phones lines. “Right now the imbuement, if you call customer service, you are contacting the Far East or the Middle East,” said the MP. “If you call customer service, the telephone service people are not necessarily located in Canada to begin with. It’s a tad misleading to say that jobs will be lost in Canada,” she added. For Gregory Thomas, federal director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, the inclusion of the American telecom company is not the issue, but rather the way the process is occurring. “Personally speaking as somebody that gets a big fat wireless bill every month, I’d love to see some competition,” said Thomas. “The more, the better.” The Canadian government is auctioning off spectrum radio raves. These waves used to be used by the old analog televisions stations, but were rendered moot when the television sifted to digital. “Government is going to auction it off for 20 years and they are going to auction off four chunks of it,” said Thomas. “The Big Three will be allowed to compete for two of them. So you have three Canadian companies competing for two of the chunks and the other two are essentially reserved for Verizon. Verizon is shaping up to be the only bidder.” Other companies have until September to put a bid in. See BIDDING, Page 19

Swinging into another win Patricia Leboeuf email@example.com
Sports â€“ Allen McGee is just a typical busy family man, a father of two and a hard worker. The Dunrobin native also an impressive golfer, winning the Ottawa Valley Golf Association menâ€™s A Class championship for seven consecutive years. The 41-year-old won by three strokes. He shot a 67 in the final of four rounds, finishing the tournament with 214 strokes. â€œObviously it feels great,â€? said McGee. â€œFor some reason I do very, very well in this tournament. He entered the final round down four strokes. â€œI didnâ€™t feel like I had to defend (my title), but I felt like I had to try,â€? he added. â€œThe fact that I came from behind this year was a totally new thing. I just proved myself on the hardest rounds in the city.â€? The championship was held Aug. 26 to 28 at the Dragonfly Golf Links, Renfrew Golf Club, and the Royal Ottawa Golf Club in Aylmer. The locations usually change every year or so. McGee is familiar with all three courses, being fortunate enough to play all over the Ottawa region. He originally felt very comfortable knowing he would play at these locations, but found himself struggling and only managed to win the championship after buckling down. â€œItâ€™s the first time in the seven years that Iâ€™ve won that I came up from behind to win,â€? said McGee. â€œIt was definitely a different mindset this year. I guess I wanted to prove that I could still do it. After being down after game two, everybody was kind of thinking â€˜McGee is out, good.â€™ I actually bore down and pulled out
Allen McGee has won the Ottawa Valley Golf Association menâ€™s A Class championship seven times in a row. one of my best games of the year.â€? The competition pool was smaller than previous years, but still as fierce. â€œNo matter what there is always a good 20 out of the 48 that could win if they had three days in a row,â€? said McGee. â€œI would never sit thereâ€Ś the way you look at it, I shot a 76 the second day and I was probably, out of the 48 people, middle of the pack. Twenty people beat me that day.â€? He did receive a little bit of good natured ribbing from his competitors, particularly after he managed a few birdies. â€œWe are all a tight group of people,â€? said McGee. â€œWe all know each other. We are just competing with each other. I started with four birdies in a row and one of the guys in my group said, â€˜Come on, McGee, Iâ€™m trying to make up ground here.â€™ â€œAs much as I love to have fun with golf, Iâ€™m very serious,â€? he added. STARTED AT 15
He began playing at the age of 15 when a serious injury to the wrist prevented him from playing hockey. With the help of his father, he decided to find a new sport and golf fit in perfectly.
â€œI got pretty good pretty quick and I realized I liked it,â€? said McGee. He plays as often as he can to keep his edge up, upping the frequency during tournament season. The training has paid off as his overall game gets better every year. â€œPhysically Iâ€™m playing the same, but I guess experiencewise is making me stronger,â€? said McGee. â€œItâ€™s a mental preparation on how to play each course and itâ€™s about going out and doing it,â€? he added. He has shared his love of the sport with his children Hunter, 12, and Zoe, 10. Though their interest level varies, it isnâ€™t unusual to see the family on the green together. McGee even participated in this yearâ€™s Ottawa Sun Scramble with his son. â€œI decided to take my son this year, which everybody kind of laughed at because he is 12 and he has to play the big boy tees and there are pros in the tournament as well,â€? said McGee. â€œBut we actually made the cut and finished in eighth place. It was very, very gratifying.â€? With a previous partner, McGee also wowed sports fans by being a six-time Scramble winner and two-time runnerup.

Wardenâ€™s golf tournament boosts doctor recruitment News - County of Renfrew Warden Peter Emon announced last week that the annual Wardenâ€™s Invitational Golf Tournament held Aug. 23 can be considered as another successful event. Each year the Warden selects an organization within the community where the proceeds from the tournament are donated. This yearâ€™s recipient was the Renfrew Area Health Services Village. â€œThe tournament this year will donate $5,200 to the Renfrew Area Health Services Village a unique and exciting physician recruitment initiative, which is successfully working to ensure the residents of the four communities (Greater Madawaska, Horton, Admaston-Bromley and Renfrew) have access to doctors.â€? said Emon. This yearâ€™s annual golf tournament was hosted at the Calabogie Highlands Golf Resort overlooking Calabogie Lake. Seventy-three players enjoyed a beautiful day, competing for a chance to win the 2013 Wardenâ€™s Cup title. At the end of the day, the winnerâ€™s bragging rights belonged to The Dynamic Foursome from the Town of Petawawa, whose team members were Mayor Bob Sweet, Deputy Mayor Tom Mohns, Brad Sweet, and Tim Clouthier. â€œThe Wardenâ€™s Tournament has always been an event that supports important community causes with the generous support of the community, the golfers and our sponsors,â€? said Emon. The Wardenâ€™s Invitational Golf Tournament has raised about $35,000 over the past nine years for various charities within the community.

Bidding process â€˜riggedâ€™ Continued from Page 15
The last radio wave auction brought in $4.3 billion dollars, but the upcoming one is estimated by analysts to come in at much lower. The auction is in itself rigged by allowing only one company to compete for the spectrum and this will ultimately cost taxpayers $1 billion in lost revenue, Thomas said. â€œEverybody loves an auction sale,â€? he said. â€œEspecially an auction sale was you are the only bidder. If I was able to go to an auction sale like that Iâ€™d stay all day and all night. â€œIt just seems odd the way â€Ś the approach the government has taken and
we donâ€™t see where the government has made the case that handing out billion dollar advantage to Verizon is going to produce the great results we all wish there would,â€? he added. He believes that there will be a tangible loss in potential tax income with the single company auction. â€œWeâ€™d like Verizon to bid against Canadian companies,â€? said Thomas. â€œThere are smaller companies. Like in Saskatchewan, the base player is SaskTel which is actually run by the government of Saskatchewan right now. In the Atlantics, itâ€™s EastLink. In Quebec, itâ€™s Videotron.

much more insidious: post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). For years, he lived with a dark shadow, uncomfortable in crowds, struggling under the weight of his own pain and trapped in his own emotional hell. It wasnâ€™t until Thai, a companion and service dog, entered his life that things started looking up. His faithful companion brought him back to life, saving his sanity and bringing him back from the brink of despair. Most veterans arenâ€™t so lucky. Training these service dogs can cost up to $25,000 and average at about $7,000 and though there is plenty of anecdotal evidence that service dogs are helpful to those with mental health issues, clinical trials has not reached a consensus. They arenâ€™t covered by insurance and each veteran must ďŹ nd a way to foot the bill. As such Cousineau is taking a â€˜Long Walk to Sanityâ€™, walking the 1, 436 km from Halifax to Ottawa, to raise awareness as well as funds to help wounded soldiers heal. The money is going to the Paws Fur Thoughts campaign that helps pair veterans with PTSD Service dogs. Cousineau hopes to raise $350,000. This will allow 50 veterans to be matched up with 50 dogs. â€œWhat the dog does is pick up the signs and symptoms (of PTSD), probably even before the member is even aware that itâ€™s happening,â€? said the campaignâ€™s local coordinator Karen McCrimmon. â€œIt tries to distract him and tries to focus

Heâ€™s meeting veterans all over the place who are encouraging him to carry on. They are really happy with what he is doing.â€? The various Royal Canadian Legions across the country have been helpful in staging fundraisers, activities and opening their doors. â€œI think people should watch for him on the street,â€? said McCrimmon. â€œGive him a big olâ€™ wave and let him know he is welcome in our communities.â€? Cousineau has managed to touch several people with his story and has encouraged many to step out of the shadows of their own mental illness. â€œHe is a very compassionate man, heâ€™s suffering and he wants to do something to alleviate the suffering of others,â€? said McCrimmon.

Retired Captain Medricâ€˜Cousâ€™Cousineau takes his guide dog, Thai, out for a walk in the woods in preparation of his 1, 436 km journey, from Halifax to Ottawa, to raise money for Paws Fur Thoughts. him on the dog instead of the surrounding and things that might be upsetting. It gives him the courage not to be isolated. â€œI think thatâ€™s what a lot of what happens to a lot of people with PTSD,â€? she added. â€œThey isolate themselves because they feel like uncomfortable with their reactions to stimuli. The dog gives them the courage to go out outside.â€? The walk began on Aug. 1 in Halifax and every day Cousineau, Thai, his wife and an entourage of supporters walk the equivalent of a marathon. He will be in Stittsville on Sept. 10, Arnprior on Sept. 11, and Kanata and West Carleton on Sept 12. Heâ€™ll end his walk in

The OPP reminds companies to be diligent in ensuring credit cards are used properly. DOUBLE CHECK
“Do not provide materials unless the actual credit card is presented for payment and if in doubt, request a secondary piece of identification. Businesses may also call the credit card companies to ensure the card is valid,” advise OPP. If anyone has information about the frauds, they are asked to call their local OPP detachment at 1-888-310-1122.
News - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) in Eastern Ontario have been investigating numerous frauds in relation to credit cards being used to order construction material. In incidents that having been occurring since December, suspects phone in an order using a fraudulent credit card for payment. At times, the suspects hire a company to pick up the order shortly after making the phone call. When the credit card is used, it appears to be valid, but is soon returned to the company as stolen or compromised. Unfortunately, the material is already gone.
OPP issues construction material scam alert

The weekly themes included Art and Nature, All Around the World and Medieval Times. “Students worked on drawing and painting skills, 2D and 3D projects a variety of other media such as print making, papier mache and sculpture,” says Cerigo. The exhibit launch begins this Saturday at 10 a.m. The work will be on display in the library’s Art Corridor until mid-October.
