News – 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 can’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. “They do it on their own, when they are ready to make that next step,� Neill said. See ARNPRIOR Page 3

Community – The Terry Fox Run is alive and well in Arnprior. Organizer Stephen Dodd is thrilled with the support he’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. “I don’t know of one family that’s not affected by cancer and it’s just an important cause to support,� said Dodd, who took over running the local event when long-time organizer Rita

Clouthier’s health prevented her from going forward in the role. “Rita’s been doing a great job of it for many, many years,� said Dodd. But when she couldn’t continue, the local event was in danger of closing. “I said, ‘We can’t let that happen,’� said Dodd. And he’s had plenty of support. “We’re just trying to revive it and re-

build it. We deďŹ nitely want to get participation up again this year,â€? he said. “Posters are out, signs are up and by all indicators, I think that numbers should be up. “Since last year’s run, people have come forward and said, ‘How can I help?’â€? See PICK UP Page 3

To kick off the Arnprior Terry Fox Run event, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien Theatre will host a special viewing of the Terry Fox movie on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 7:30 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If people cannot walk or run they definitely can support the foundation by viewing the movie that night,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department to get involved and see which force comes out on top. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really nice to see that kind of community involvement,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hats off to Karen Barsoski, fire prevention officer for McNab-Braeside,â&#x20AC;? said Dodd. Barsoski participated in the

This year sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involved in an off-site run, he explained, but her fundraising efforts will still

benefit the local run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get some other enforcement agencies involved, too,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no requirement for how much participants run or walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if people want to come out and pick up a pledge form, pledge $10 and then walk once or twice around the track, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great,â&#x20AC;? said Dodd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And, of course, if you want to run five kilometres, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great, too.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 978 units Continued from front

Overall, there are 978 subsidized rental units in the county. Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Avenuesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent a lot of time, money and effort on this over the last few years,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;bricks and mortarâ&#x20AC;? in the past, but is moving toward assisting tenants in other ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to deal with five or six agencies. They want to go to one,â&#x20AC;? he said. After the presentation, Anderson and Neill said they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;We have people that maybe were working full time, but are now out of work,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They could be anyone. People who house with us are from all walks of life. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stereotype them.â&#x20AC;?

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; While Arnprior council has agreed that all new streets in town donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;very special occasion,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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

Among the family members present were Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Cathy Burgess, Trudeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s niece Mary Epps, Scobieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Sandra Hall, Gavinskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Dan, Fergussonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Mike, Moskosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daughter Kathy Burgess, Spinksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daughter Nancy Stavenow, and Tourangeauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;for acknowledging those who gave so much.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s substantial accomplishments in recreation, the Town of Arnprior renamed Arena â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at the Nick Smith Centre to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Bert Hall Arenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

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.carter@metroland.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

d

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

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.”

EDITORIAL

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford another year like last year,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share for its library and recreation services, but while McNab-Braeside also contributes, the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to win an election on the promise of low taxes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so easy to realistically run an effective municipality

Opinion

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;just pay it.â&#x20AC;?

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have everything is a simple fact of life. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford it, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it. I know that it is very expensive to put your child into hockey. If you can afford to put

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that usually the case. They would much prefer to spread the grief to everyone. Also, because it has been done for years doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2DC;buttonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. These were short end pieces of pine lumber of different lengths and thickness, which could be used in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; kitchen stoves.

Endangered Species Act changes sorely needed: Muzzi Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

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.

Wild parsnip a growing concern in county

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 jmuzzi@countyofrenfrew.ca 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

The Dunrobin native also an impressive golfer, winning the Ottawa Valley Golf Association menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously it feels great,â&#x20AC;? said McGee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some reason I do very, very well in this tournament. He entered the final round down four strokes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like I had to defend (my title), but I felt like I had to try,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 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&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time in the seven years that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won that I came up from behind to win,â&#x20AC;? said McGee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It 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&#x20AC;&#x2DC;McGee is out, good.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I actually bore down and pulled out

He did receive a little bit of good natured ribbing from his competitors, particularly after he managed a few birdies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are all a tight group of people,â&#x20AC;? said McGee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We 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&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Come on, McGee, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to make up ground here.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;As much as I love to have fun with golf, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very serious,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;I got pretty good pretty quick and I realized I liked it,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Physically Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing the same, but I guess experiencewise is making me stronger,â&#x20AC;? said McGee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mental preparation on how to play each course and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about going out and doing it,â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual to see the family on the green together. McGee even participated in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa Sun Scramble with his son. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I 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&#x20AC;? said McGee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we actually made the cut and finished in eighth place. It was very, very gratifying.â&#x20AC;? With a previous partner, McGee also wowed sports fans by being a six-time Scramble winner and two-time runnerup.

Wardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf tournament boosts doctor recruitment News - County of Renfrew Warden Peter Emon announced last week that the annual Wardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipient was the Renfrew Area Health Services Village. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 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&#x20AC;? said Emon. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cup title. At the end of the day, the winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;? said Emon. The Wardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Invitational Golf Tournament has raised about $35,000 over the past nine years for various charities within the community.

Bidding process â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;riggedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody loves an auction sale,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Especially an auction sale was you are the only bidder. If I was able to go to an auction sale like that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d stay all day and all night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just seems odd the way â&#x20AC;Ś the approach the government has taken and

we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;? he added. He believes that there will be a tangible loss in potential tax income with the single company auction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like Verizon to bid against Canadian companies,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s EastLink. In Quebec, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t covered by insurance and each veteran must ďŹ nd a way to foot the bill. As such Cousineau is taking a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Long Walk to Sanityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, 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&#x20AC;&#x153;What the dog does is pick up the signs and symptoms (of PTSD), probably even before the member is even aware that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening,â&#x20AC;? said the campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local coordinator Karen McCrimmon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It tries to distract him and tries to focus

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting veterans all over the place who are encouraging him to carry on. They are really happy with what he is doing.â&#x20AC;? The various Royal Canadian Legions across the country have been helpful in staging fundraisers, activities and opening their doors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think people should watch for him on the street,â&#x20AC;? said McCrimmon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give him a big olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wave and let him know he is welcome in our communities.â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x153;He is a very compassionate man, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suffering and he wants to do something to alleviate the suffering of others,â&#x20AC;? said McCrimmon.

It gives him the courage not to be isolated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what a lot of what happens to a lot of people with PTSD,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They isolate themselves because they feel like uncomfortable with their reactions to stimuli.

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.

Community - In the spirit of back to school, remember to ensure your child’s library card is up to date. Access to the library is a stepping stone in your child’s academic success. Children have been filling the library all summer with a full slate of programming. Now that full day kindergarten has come to Arnprior area schools, the library is planning its fall schedule accordingly. The Friday morning drop in story times now feature Toddler Tales 9:3010 a.m. and Have a Hoot Story Time for children 2 ½ to school age will run 10:30-11 a.m. beginning Sept. 27. A variety of after school programs will be offered on Mondays between 4 and 5 p.m. Check our website regularly for updates on registration for kindergarten aged children, students in Grades 1 and 2, students in Grades 3 and 4 and tween programs. Baby Rhyme Time will run on Tuesdays and is a registered program. Area children have also been creative at a variety of camps this summer, and the library is pleased to launch an art exhibit Sept. 7 featuring some of the works of young artists who attended art exploration camps with instructor Judith Cerigo. 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. Follow the library on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates on news and events (613-623-2279).

(2) An application for amendment to Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. 4990-01, as amended. (3) A public meeting regarding the proposed plan of subdivision (application 47-T-11004) and Zoning By-law Amendment ZBLA-2/13. Subject Lands

The County of Renfrew has received application No.47-T-11004 for approval of a plan of subdivision for the lands described as part of Lot 4, Concession B, geographic Town of Arnprior and municipally known as 115-117 Baskin Drive, as shown on the attached Key Map.

Public Meeting A public meeting to inform the public of the proposed subdivision and to consider the proposed zoning amendment will be held on Tuesday, October 15th, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. at the municipal offices of the Town of Arnprior. Description of Applications Plan of subdivision - The proposed plan of subdivision proposes to create 42 housing units (16 townhouse, 14 semidetached and 12 attached duplex units) on an internal cul-de-sac accessed from Baskin Drive. A block of land for stormwater management is also included on the plan.

Party Rockers in the park Chelsea Champagne and Lisa Brooks perform in the 16-and-over cake walk competition at the 14th annual Caitlin Stewart Highland Dancing Competition Aug. 25 at Robert Simpson Park. The event was held in conjunction with the fourth annual White Pine Festival in Arnprior.

Effect of Zoning By-law Amendment – The proposed zoning amendment would amend the zone designation from Residential Two (R2) and Community Facility (CF) to Residential Three – Exception Eighteen – holding (R3-E18-h) and Open Space One – holding (OS1-h). The exception adds “attached duplex dwelling” to the list of permitted uses in the R3 zone, and provides for a definition and provisions for the “attached duplex dwelling” use. The lands will be subject to a ‘h’ (holding) symbol which will not be lifted, permitting development, until various requirements including approval of a development application, with appropriate studies in support being submitted and approved. If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at the public meeting, or make written submissions to the County of Renfrew in respect of the proposed plan of subdivision before the County of Renfrew gives or refuses to give approval to the draft plan of subdivision, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the County of Renfrew to the Ontario Municipal Board, and the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to do so.

Lifestyle - We thought nothing of the three and a half mile trek to the Northcote School. There were others who walked much further. And if, for any reason, we had to make a stop at Briscoe’s General Store, that meant at least another mile, as we had to walk the Rink Road to get there, bypassing Plaunt’s road which was our usual way of getting to and from school. When we got to the end of our long lane, and onto the Northcote Side Road, we would meet up with the Thom’s, our nextfarm-over neighbours. And Velma and I, best friends, would hold hands all the way to the school. My three brothers wanted no part of we younger ones, and they would tear ahead of us, leaving us behind, as if we had the plague! It was a dirt road all the way, and by the time we got to school, even our socks were covered with dust, and our shoes looked like they had been through a war! I was in boys brown brogue laced shoes that had come in the hand-me-down box from Aunt Lizzie in Regina, and I secretly prayed that the hateful shoes would fall apart one day, and I could wear my Sunday-go-to-church shoes, which were just marginally better than the boys’ brogues. This time of year, my three brothers, who every year Mother swore had grown a foot over the summer, had new running shoes to wear that first day back to school. They covered their ankles, and laced from the toes to the tops, and had thick black soles. If Mother didn’t order them from Eaton’s catalogue, they were bought in Renfrew where Mother bargained for the best price, paying the princely sum of .98 cents a pair. And the stores in Renfrew weren’t too happy about trading a couple chickens or fresh eggs like Mr. Briscoe did at the General Store in Northcote. The boys were well warned to be careful with the running shoes, because they would be the only ones they would be getting. Even if they fell apart, Mother warned! “No scuffing along the side road,” she would bellow, as we all headed out the lane that first day back to school. If some misfortune happened to the running shoes, the brothers would have to resort to wearing their gum-rubbers, which made their feet sweat. If enough boys were in their gum-rubbers all at the same time at school, the whole

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

place smelled to high heaven, causing Miss Crosby to fling the windows wide even on the coldest Fall days! And so it was, that first day back to the Northcote School, the three brothers in their new running shoes which they weren’t allowed to put on their feet until that morning, me in my boys brogues that had been shined with bacon fat, and our lunches in clean brown paper bags, we headed off. At the end of the lane, Velma waited for me. The Thoms boys and my three brothers raced off down the dirt road. Boys never carried their lunch bags openly. They tucked them inside the front of their shirts, which did nothing to keep the sandwiches in one piece. We girls put our lunches in our book bags, in with our new scribblers, and whatever books Mother had to buy at the drug store. And always we girls carried a freshly laundered handkerchief, neatly folded, tucked in our book bag as well. If Kleenex had been invented back then, we certainly didn’t know about it! Mother always tried to have my sister Audrey and I wearing something new for that first day back to school. Not store-bought of course. Something she would have made from a leftover from the hand-me-down box, or from a well-bleached pair of flour bags. Mother favoured making blouses. Simple blouses, with little round Peter Pan collars, and she would search through her sewing basket until she found pieces of rick-rack braid which she would sew around the cuffs of the puffed sleeves and the round collar. Very clever, was my Mother, I thought back then. Even though we had seen the neighbourhood children many times over the summer, at church picnics, ball games, and family get-togethers, on that first day back to school, it was as if we hadn’t laid eyes on them for years! There would be the Briscoe twins, in

identical dresses. My little friend Joyce, always with something brand new that had probably come out of Walker Stores in Renfrew, and of course, bad Marguirite would have had a new permanent wave in her drugstore bleached Shirley Temple curls, and she would be in shiny black patent leather Mary Jane shoes, and little white socks with lace around the tops. And there would be our same teacher... Miss Crosby...in the same dress she had worn on the last day of school two months before. And she would still smell of lilac talcum powder, and her black laced shoes would be so shiny, you could see your face in them. That first day of school we were allowed to go home mid-afternoon. Instead of calling a recess, Miss Crosby would announce that school was over for that day. And we’d head back out to the road that went by the school, and that day we would take the long way home. Down the Rink Road and over to Briscoe’s General Store. Because that day, and that day only, we would all have been given a nickel. Audrey’s and mine tied in the corner of our hankies, and the brothers rattling around in their overall pockets with the usual collection of sling-shots, pieces of string, a couple of nails, and their dime-store jack-knives. It would be like a small invasion, as en mass we crowded into the store and headed right for the candy counter. The boys of the Northcote School would forgo the little brown paper bag, and instead cram their nickel’s worth of candy deep into their overall pockets. Usually, they bought licorice pipes. We girls picked candies like discs, stuck to strips of white paper, with little words printed on them. And often Velma and I would buy one box of nickel cracker-jacks, and a nickel’s worth of peppermints and share them on the way home. Once again, every day, the Northcote Road would lead us to and from the school. There would be no rides because of bad weather. It was a trek we were well used to. In good weather, and bad, like a washboard ribbon, parched dry when there was no rain, covered in ruts when there was, and icy and snow-covered when Winter came, the Northcote Road was as familiar to us as the backs of our hands.

The dance program ended with the brother and sisSiblings Thomas and Emily Cherney were granted the opportunity of a lifetime after receiving a scholarship to ‘Be Discovered ter team performing on a real Broadway stage, typiBroadway Bound!’, a labour intensive dance program. They returned from New York with new moves and a new direction. cally used for the award-winning Lion King.

‘Any dance you do, I can do better’ Magic on Broadway, contained about 137. Most dancers had to audition to participate in the show, but the program streamlined the them onto the stage. The family got to stay in a hotel in downtown New York, a block away from Times Square, going to a plethora of Broadway shows in the evening and visiting the sights like Madam Tussaud’s wax museum, which deeply impressed them.

Community - Few people get to dance across an actual Broadway stage; fewer still get to do it while still underage. Emily, 13, and Thomas Cherney, 11, are an exception. The gregarious Arnprior duo’s dancing talent attracted the attention of the ‘Be Discovered Broadway Bound!’ officials, who awarded them scholarships to the coveted program. The siblings made their way down to New York on July 26, and submitted themselves to intense dance training, pushing themselves to their physical limit for a week. The experience was a rush, building their talent and cumulating in a professional-grade show, which was held on the stage of official award-winning ‘Lion King’ show. “I was so nervous I had butterflies in my stomach,” said Thomas. “But when I was doing that (dance) it went away. It was really fun.” They learned from famous and veteran choreographs whose real world accolades include performing in the Rockettes and alongside Justin Bieber. Training was grueling at

Some days, the children danced for almost 10 hours. “We get our schedule the nights before,” said Emily. “We would dance how many hours they told us and then we would go back to the hotel. We’d have 10-15 minutes to

get dressed … and we would either go see a show or go out to dinner.” Some days “we didn’t have water, we didn’t have food,” she added. It accurately reflected the daily realities, the highs and lows, of musical theater, said Lori Ann Cherney. “Basically it takes young talent and shows them what it’s like to be a Broadway Star,” said Cherney. Despite it all, the experi-

ence was one both siblings relished. “It was awesome,” said Thomas. “I made so many good friends. I miss a few of them.” The siblings were together through the accelerated program, sometimes temporarily separated into smaller groups for practice and to refine certain steps. This particular program accepted 37 kids, but the crowning show, Disney’s Dance the

The program is highly selective, expensive and accepts only the best. The siblings got in after being awarded scholarships to program with their spirited performance of Annie Get Your Gun’s ‘Anything you can do I can do better’. It was a pleasant surprise. “We were at a dance competition and pretty much we heard about it when we got the scholarship,” said Emily. “We really didn’t know anything about it.” Though they had won passage to the popular New York program, the Cherneys needed to raise sufficient funds. The family turned to the community for help and the response was generous. “We did some fundraising

and stuff to offset the costs,” said Cherney. “… we raised about $8,000 since April and the support from Arnprior was phenomenal.” Their home studio, the Arnprior School of Dance (ASD), was also an incredibly supportive influence. The Cherneys have been part of the school since they were toddling along at three years old. Their talent was nurtured under the tutelage of director Monica Lyon and choreographer Andrea Bahm-Barker. Dance and the ASD has become a deeply entwined part of their life. They also sing and act. Though the experience was one-of-a-kind and will stay with them for the rest of their lives, both siblings think they’ll skip Broadway stardom. “That was the decision maker,” said Thomas. “I have decided that if I do want to go in ‘the business’, I would like to go for an actor career like movies and on television and stuff rather than Broadway.” Emily is also aiming for an acting career, but with a strong singing and dancing background. “So that way if they need me to do something, like singing or dancing, I’ll be able to do it,” she said.

Youth trapping program to be introduced in province News - The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) and the Ontario Fur Managers Federation (OFMF) have congratulated the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) for introducing a youth trapping program in the province.

The announcement was made at the OFMF annual general meeting held in Napanee in late August. “Trapping is a heritage activity and by providing an opportunity for youth to be involved, it will enhance their appreciation for the out-

doors and instill a lifelong dedication to conservation,” said OFAH executive director Angelo Lombardo. “The OFAH is pleased that the MNR recognizes that a youth trapping program will not only provide recreational and outdoor benefits, but also pass along knowledge of an activity that is part of the cultural fabric of Canada.” Beginning this fall, youth between the ages of 12 to 15 will be eligible to obtain a trapping license. The license will permit youth to possess, prepare and sell pelts commercially. SPECIAL COURSE

Fall registration is on now!

To qualify, youth must successfully complete the provincial Fur Harvest, Fur Management and Conservation Course (FHFMCC) and be accompanied by a licensed trapper 18 years of age or older. The FHFMCC provides training with an emphasis on safety, humane trapping techniques and sustainable wildlife management practices. “The Ontario Fur Managers Federation has

worked closely with the MNR to make this program a reality, and we are delighted that the government has agreed to move forward on this vital and timely initiative,” said OFMF president Karl Lindstrom. “The introduction of a youth trapping program will allow us to teach young people about the rich history associated with trapping in Ontario, and ensure that future generations understand the key role that trapping and trappers play in terms of conservation, sustainability, wildlife management, protection of crops and livestock and public safety. “Trapping is considered an activity of significant historical, social, cultural and economic value in Ontario for centuries, and one that results in economic benefits to the communities and individuals,” said Minister of Natural Resources David Orazietti. “Ontario trappers have worked tirelessly for many years towards a program like this which will guide youth to be safe and responsible trappers.” For more information, including how to apply, visit www.mnr.gov.on.ca or www.furmanagers.com.

Help your children realize the many joys of reading Lifestyle - Sharing with your children the joy of reading is to offer them the most beautiful gift in the world: an open door to wonder and imagination, which they will be able to enjoy for the rest of their lives. There is no need to wait: research shows that children experience more academic success when the pleasures of words and reading are kindled before they start school. It is important, of course, to adapt the reading material to the age of the child. From zero to 2 years, babies will literally devour their books. Baby books must be very durable and, ideally, washable. As soon as babies can focus on an image, sharing a book together with a parent is a great way to spend time together. From three to five years, children start to be interested in stories with a narrative. Toddlers are likely to ask you to read them the same book night after night.

Comply without grumbling, because a passion is being born! Preschoolers, on the other hand, usually appreciate a variety of stories and illustrations. When they are school-age, continue to read to your children, even if they already know how to read alone. Then, gradually, take it in turns to read in order to encourage their progress. VISIT YOUR LIBRARY

In addition to readers sent home from school, visit your local library as well so that you children can have access to a wider variety of books. An enjoyable outing to the library can be an incentive to read in itself. Last but not least, if they see you reading and hear you talking passionately about the books that you read, your children will almost inevitably grow up with a desire to do the same.

Elementary students improve in English, lose ground in math News - Ontario elementary schools keep getting better at helping students to become good readers and to communicate well when they write. However, elementary school math programs are losing ground in the effort to help students achieve and maintain math success - particularly in Grades 4 through 6. As students advance through school, their progress is tracked on three provincial math tests (in Grades 3, 6 and 9) and three provincial literacy tests (in Grades 3, 6 and 10). The tracking results indicate that early achievement often predicts achievement in secondary school, and early struggles, if not corrected, can compound year after year. Ontario students continue to improve their achievement levels, with 71 per cent of Grade 3 and 6 students meeting or exceeding the provincial standard in reading, writing and math. The latest test scores from the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) show more students than ever are gaining the skills they need for success in school and beyond. The number of students reaching the provincial standard has increased one percentage point compared to 201112 levels and 17 percentage points in comparison to 2002-03 levels, meaning over 150,000 more elementary students are reaching the standard than would have in 2002-03. Grade 3 and 6 students whose first language is neither English nor French have particularly improved their test scores, narrowing the achievement gap with the general population by more than 80 per cent since 2002-03. On Sept.18, EQAO will release individual reports for each elementary school and its board, as well as a full provincial report on the elementary school assessments.

On Sept. 25, school and board reports will be released for the Grade 9 Assessment of Mathematics as well as for the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test. A full provincial report on the secondary school assessments will also be released on this date. ELEMENTARY TEST RESULTS

Reading A total of 68 per cent of Grade 3 students and 77 per cent of Grade 6 students are now meeting the provincial reading standard, an increase of seven percentage points and eight percentage points, respectively, over the past five years. Elementary schools are getting better at helping students who did not meet the standard when they were in Grade 3 to improve and meet it in Grade 6. In 2009, schools helped 39 per cent of the students who had not met the reading standard in Grade 3 to improve and meet it in Grade 6; whereas this year, schools were able to help more than half (51 per cent) to improve and meet the reading standard in those intervening three years. The achievement of students whose first language is not English is quickly catching up to the general population. A total of 61 per cent of Grade 3 and 68 per cent of Grade 6 English language learners are now meeting the provincial reading standard. Writing A total of 77 per cent of students in Grade 3 and 76 per cent of students in Grade 6 can now make themselves clearly understood when writing and are using appropriate grammar, spelling and punctuation at the expected level. This represents a nine-percentagepoint increase over the past five years

for students in both grades meeting the provincial writing standard. Mathematics There are now five years of trending decline in the percentage of students meeting the provincial math standard on both provincial elementary assessments. A total of 67 per cent of Grade 3 students met the standard in 2013 compared to 70 per cent in 2009, and 57 per cent of Grade 6 students met the standard in 2013 compared to 63 per cent in 2009. Elementary schools are losing an increasing number of students in math achievement between Grades 4 and 6. In each of the last five years, there have been increasing numbers of students who no longer meet the provincial math standard in Grade 6 despite having met it in Grade 3. This year, almost one in five (19 per cent) Grade 6 students fit that description.

In the Grade 9 assessment of mathematics: â&#x20AC;˘ 84 per cent of students enrolled in the academic math course met the provincial standard this year, a sevenpercentage-point increase over the past five years; â&#x20AC;˘ 71 per cent of Grade 9 students are enrolled in the academic math course; â&#x20AC;˘ 44 per cent of students enrolled in the applied math course met the provincial standard this year, a sixpercentage-point increase over the past five years; â&#x20AC;˘ 29 per cent of Grade 9 students are enrolled in the applied math course; â&#x20AC;˘ in the academic math course, 93 per cent of the students who met the provincial math standard in Grade 3 and met it in Grade 6 met it again in Grade 9, whereas 49 per cent of the students who had not met the standard in Grade 3 and had not met it in Grade 6 also did not meet it in Grade 9; â&#x20AC;˘ in the applied math course, 70 per cent of the students who had not met the standard in Grade 3 and had not met in Grade 6 also did not meet it in Grade 9; Grade 10 - Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT); â&#x20AC;˘ 82 per cent of participating students were successful on the OSSLT on their first try; â&#x20AC;˘ students who speak neither English nor French as a first language also showed significant gains in Grade 9

BACK TO SCHOOL & 2013 FALL REGISTRATION Public school board’s association strong voice for Renfrew County News - After a challenging year in education, Renfrew County District School Board Chair David Kaiser is glad to have the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) in Renfrew County’s corner. OPSBA’s primary role is supporting its school boards. It is the only democratically elected body with a specific responsibility for the education and well-being of publicly educated children and youth. OPSBA provides a collective voice for public education while representing many divergent and unique interests of public school boards across the province.

Former RCDSB chair and current vice chair Dave Shields has spent 10 years associated with OSPBA as director, chair of the OPSBA Educational Policy Development Work Team and his current role as the vice president of the Eastern Region. “I have come to appreciate OPSBA’s excellent staff who are always focused on what is best for students across the province,” Shields said. “They have the respect of the provincial government and have positioned themselves to react to any government education policy, financial or regulation changes with welcomed input

and feedback. The Minister of Education, Liz Sandals understands the importance of our organization as she is an OPSBA past president.” Shields feels OPSBA has a variety of methods of getting input from school boards from across the province. “One of the most effective is through the regional meetings,” Shields said. “All five regions meet regularly to discuss issues of concern and to share new initiatives and best practises. This permits small and large boards with an opportunity to make our concerns heard at the provincial level.” OPSBA’s involvement in the School Energy Coalition has saved Ontario’s school boards about $122 million (more than $60 a student) through the last eight years. That translates to about $570,000 in savings for RCDSB students over that same time period.

®

The OPSBA-led Coalition for Children and Youth Mental Health grows in strength and demonstrates OSPBA’s role in changing opinions and contributing to strategic decision making. More than 700 delegates attended the Children and Youth Mental Health Summit in October 2012. OPSBA’s recent Vision for Learning and Teaching in a Digital Age paper has been taken up by a government working table and will be a key reference document for this fall’s consultations on the future vision for education in Ontario. Chair Kaiser feels the RCDSB benefits greatly from the value OPSBA brings with its ability to collectively influence education policy and be an advocate for investment in public education in Ontario.

• the Education Quality and Accountability Office is an arm’s-length agency of the provincial government that has administered provincial assessments annually since 1996. Ontario’s graduation rate increased to 83 per cent in 2011-12, up from 68 per cent in 200304. “We’re pleased with the significant gains in student achievement over the past 10 years, but we know there is still more to do,” said Education Minister Liz Sandals. “While it has been a challenging year, we are thankful for the hard work of students, teachers and parents to close gaps in achievement. We

will continue to boost our efforts to help students in key areas like math so they can achieve their best.” “Ontario elementary schools keep getting better at developing the literacy skills that are so fundamental to our students’ long-term success,” said EQAO CEO Bruce Rodrigues. “As a province, though, we still struggle to find the right formula for helping more students succeed in math. For students, a solid foundation in math is essential to success in today’s world. Math is all around us, and as a province and country, we simply must help the next generation excel in math if we’re to deliver on all the promise the 21st century has to offer.”

They should be treated as another vehicle so give them ample space. Be vigilant as many kids ride skateboards, scooters or roller blade on the road. • Always leave in plenty of time to get to your destination - running late

Young Drivers of Canada are also offering back-to-school safety for drivers. “With children returning to school drivers need to be more cautious,” says the organization in a news release. “Child pedestrians are most often hurt in the months of September and October and children aged 10-14 years have the highest incidence of pedestrian-related injuries. The roads are busier and drivers need to adjust their driving routine to help predict and prevent these injuries.” Young Drivers of Canada offers the following advice to drivers: • Be aware of school zone signage. • Reduce speed in school zones. A pedestrian struck by a car traveling at

50 km/hr is eight times more likely to be killed than a pedestrian struck at 30 km/hr. Even a small reduction in speed can be significant. • Wait for children to complete their crossing before proceeding. The most common child pedestrian action that results in injury or death is at an intersection, followed by running onto the road. • Motorists traveling in both directions must stop for the school bus except if the road is divided by a median. • Be prepared: school buses stop at all railway crossings, but are not re-

sidewalk, driveway and behind your vehicle before backing up. • Remember to slow down in school zones. • Be ready to stop at all times because children may dart out between parked vehicles. • Try to make eye contact with children waiting to cross the street. • Come to a complete stop for school buses when lights are flashing. • Watch for children riding a bike to school. CAA’s tips for children include: • Stop before stepping onto the road. • Look in all directions before crossing the street. • Listen for traffic. • Walk, don’t run, across the road. CAA’s bus safety rules include: • Be at the bus stop on time and avoid running to or from the bus. • Wait for the bus in a safe place that is a good distance from the side of the road. • Use the hand rail when boarding or exiting the bus. • Keep feet out of the aisle to avoid tripping people as they enter and exit the bus. • Keep your head and arms inside the bus. • Always follow the bus driver's instructions. R0012260315

News - As students across the province head back to school, the Ontario government is reminding drivers to obey the rules of the road to keep children safe. It is up to drivers to watch for children, especially in school zones, and drive safely near school buses. Drivers should follow these tips: • Stop for a school bus when its overhead lights are flashing - never pass. Remain stopped until the lights stop flashing or the bus begins to move. • Leave space around school buses so children can safely board and exit the bus. Be prepared to stop for a school bus at any time, not just during school hours. • Slow down, drive with extra caution and watch for children in school zones. • Stop for pedestrians at crosswalks and school crossings. Parents can also do their part to keep children safe by reminding them to stay alert and watch for other vehicles when getting on or off the school bus. More than 818,000 students travel in about 18,000 school vehicles every day in Ontario. School buses are among the safest ways for children to travel. Research shows that riding the school bus is 16 times safer than travelling in a car, In 2008, the Ontario government made crossing arms on the front all school buses mandatory. Since 2010, new school buses require lights that illuminate the area around the entrance and exit doors of the bus Drivers can be fined up to $2,000 and six demerit points for failing to stop for a school bus “School bus safety is everybody’s business – from big cities to rural communities,” said Ontario School Bus Association president Perry Ferguson. “Caring for kids and ensuring their well-being in and around school buses is of ultimate concern to the Ontario School Bus Association and its members. We encourage the public to visit OSBA and MTO websites for important safety reminders.”

can cause aggressive driving behaviors. “We need to keep in mind that younger children often lack the cognitive and physical skills to make safe judgments about traffic,” says the Young Drivers releases. “Children are also physically smaller which makes it harder for drivers to see them and for them to see us.” Young Drivers teaches that motorists should back in rather than out of driveways. The blind area to the rear of vehicle is much larger than the one to the front making it more difficult to see if there is a child behind your vehicle. Young Drivers also teaches a technique called ‘Ground View’. “As you approach any vehicle you cannot see through, look for the feet of a pedestrian about to walk in front of you or for the wheels of a bicycle.

Connected to your community

Tai Chi welcoming committee This happy gang of Tai Chi enthusiasts reminds everyone that beginner classes in Taoist Tai Chi begin Tuesday, Sept. 10 at the Masonic Hall at 31 James St. in Arnprior. The classes run 10 a.m. to noon each Tuesday. For info, call 613-257-1936 or visit the website www.taoist.org/ottawa. Tai chi, touted as the most practiced exercise in the world, is an excellent way to keep in shape both mentally and physically. It helps relieve arthritis and improves joint flexibility by the gentle rotation of the spine and joints, which increases synovial fluid. It helps to relieve asthma by using deep breathing exercises, which increase lung capacity. It also increases circulation and lowers blood pressure because it is a cardiovascular exercise. Other benefits include alleviating stress, improving memory, toning muscles, improving mind-body co-ordination, improving balance and mobility and increasing efficiency of internal organs, such as bowels, heart and lungs.

Scouts set to start new season

After studying voice for three years in high school, Myers was accepted into McGill Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vocal Performance program and began studying with Stefano Algieri.
