Running for Terry: John Leslie expected at Arnprior Run Sunday John Carter

John.carter@metroland.com

Is Arnprior up to the challenge? Arnprior’s own paralympian John Leslie is. So is Arnprior marathoner David Moon and some hardy members of the McNab-Braeside fire department. Mayor David Reid has issued his second annual challenge to Arnprior citizens to raise at least $1 per resident in the Terry Fox Run this Sunday, Sept. 18 at the Arnprior Fairgrounds. That means the goal for this year’s run is $9,000. Registration for the run opens

at 8:30 a.m. with a warm-up to be led by Joe Zamojski of Kenwood Athletic Centre before the 9 a.m. start. Participants can drop by to run, walk or cycle the course any time up to 1 p.m. (two laps equal one mile). Arnprior Terry Fox Run organizer Stephen Dodd said the mayor’s challenge has been vital in attracting interest in the event. While he would like to see the community meet the donation challenge, he is focusing on increasing participation in the run that raises money for Fox’s Marathon of Hope and its fight against cancer. He is delighted that Leslie is taking some time off from his

snowboard cross training in Chile to come home to volunteer to help with the run Sunday. “That’s dedication … pitching in for his home town run. Come down and welcome him back home.” Dodd notes that Moon will run a full marathon during the event, running for about four hours. It’s part of his effort to run 10 marathons before he turns 40. Meanwhile, several McNabBraeside firefighters intend to be back running two kilometres in full gear. “They’ve been doing in for the past few years,” said Dodd. “Hats off to them.” At its meeting Sept. 12, Arn-

prior council proclaimed Sept. 18 Terry Fox Day in the town and Reid called on all residents to participate in the 36th annual run to raise money for cancer research. Council noted the run is entirely volunteer driven and has become a fall tradition in Canada, with runs being held in Arnprior for the past 34 years. Terry Fox pledge forms are available at Arnprior town hall, Arnprior Library, Arnprior Museum, RONA, Goldbar, Clancy’s, Prior Sports Bar, Play It Again Sports and online at www.terryfox.ca/terryfoxrun/ SUBMITTED arnprior or on its Facebook The ‘Terry Fox Lives Here’ flag is scheduled to page. again fly proudly at Arnprior Town Hall.

McNab-Braeside to celebrate Canada’s 150th with relay, festivals John Carter

John.carter@metroland.com

McNab-Braeside isn’t about to let Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017 pass without a celebration in the township. Coun. Heather Lang has introduced a number of intriguing suggestions, including a cross-township relay, detailing ways McNab-Braeside could mark the anniversary and put itself in the spotlight. Lang explained the 150th birthday “is a perfect opportunity to showcase and promote our own municipality” while have fun doing it. Given the close proximity of McNabBraeside to the nation’s capital, “we should capitalize on the fact that many visitors and tourists will be flocking to the area to celebrate and mark this anniversary,” she said. She suggested a multi-pronged approach building on the township’s current activities and assets, as well as highlighting the area’s natural beauty, agricultural strengths, rural atmosphere, connection to the rivers, culture and heritage. Lang also said the celebrations, which would run from May to August, should be inclusive as possible, involving all ages and abilities, as well as people with an aboriginal background or with links to the logging era. “Everyone should feel welcome and be a part of this,” she said. As well, all parts of the township should be involved, she stressed. In that way, they can help bring the town-

ship together. In the past township residents have split on some issues depending on which side of the highway they live, what settlement area they are in or whether they are in a rural area or close to town. At its Sept. 6 meeting, council agreed to support the ‘Celebrate McNab-Braeside 2017’ ideas in principle and bring them up during budget deliberations. CROSS-TOWNSHIP RELAY

Lang explained that a ‘Current of Connections’ relay could involve participants using a variety of modes of transportation and passing an item from one to the other until it reaches the other end of the township. For example, paddlers could start the relay going from Sand Point to Red Pine Bay in a Voyageur canoe, she said. The next leg could involve runners to the CN recreational trail

at Division Street, then fat bikes and ATVs to the Dochart Park, where players could engage in soccer manoeuvres. The next legs could feature cycling to Wellington Park and antique car trekking to Clay Bank Park. Then kayakers could take over, heading to the Flat Rapids boat launch where the agriculture community could ride on tractors and hay wagons to the McNab Farmers Market.

community dinner and entertainment. Among Lang’s other suggestion would be to rename the Scottish Festival McNab Culture Fest to draw in more ethnic groups as well as the Scots and rebrand the Braeside Riverfest to better connect it with the community and link it with the area’s logging heritage and the Loggers Memory Project. She said a Canada Day fest could unite the main villages of White Lake, Burnstown and Braeside with a timed fireworks extravaganza and a fun ‘best dressed’ competition. Other ideas include declaring Burnstown a heritage village, unveiling a township logo and slogan, and inviting residents to create an official poem about the township. Lang said council welcomes suggestions from the public and is involving the recreation committee before any final decisions are made. It’s likely an ad hoc committee will be formed to guide the celebrations.

John Street to open by Sept. 23 Continued from front

• John Street between Madawaska and Elgin streets will have sidewalks, landscaping, and furniture by Sept. 23; • Madawaska’s sidewalks between the bridge and John Street will be in place this month; • Hydro Park West (next to the public library) will be restored by the end of month; • Sidewalks on John Street between Elgin and McGonigal will be finished by Sept. 30; • John’s underground work between McGonigal and William starts this month; •Underground work on McGonigal between John and Hugh begins in September or October. The upcoming completions are welcome news to downtown residents and merchants, many of whom say business has suffered this summer but are confident the area will look impressive when done. Mayor David Reid, who oversees the largest self-funded infrastructure project in town history, also welcomes the news. “It’s been a busy summer,” Reid said. “We had a good start, then a lull in the middle, and back on track now.”

He said work is three weeks behind at this stage, though should finish the year on time. Once crews got in the ground, roadblocks came up. Large rocks, delays in road permits, gas lines needing to be relocated: it adds up. A domino effect hits the six or eight subcontractors in this situation. Thomas Cavanagh Construction leads the project, but every delay pushes back its subcontractors who move on to other jobs rather than wait. Sometimes they can’t get back on command, causing further delays. “So we are three weeks behind,” Reid said. “That’s disappointing, but we understand. It can be a bit of a scheduling nightmare.” However, the project’s budget should not be adversely affected. The work was tendered, meaning companies say how much it will cost before the start date. And the town has built-in contingencies to deal with any overruns. “I have no expectation that we’ll be over budget.” Some concerns were raised that paving remained incomplete at the busy corner of John and Madawaska streets during the first week of school. Reid was dismissive, saying bus drivers

navigate construction work in big cities. When it does get paved, he said scheduled for Sept. 8, the work should take less than a day with lanes reduced to one. Year one work should be completed by the end of November. DANIEL STREET DELAY?

“I wish we had known this before,” Reeve Walter Stack said. “It certainly gives pause to rethink the whole sidewalk program.” The new contractor, Antrim Contracting, did not offer the lowest bid in the tender process. The one other bidder offered to do the job for about $106 an hour. But Adam Kittle Enterprises failed to meet a second requirement: equipment. Kittle would use farm tractors if it won the contract. Antrim’s machines – specifically constructed to perform maintenance work on sidewalks - meet town requirements. The council discussion didn’t include any reasons why the outgoing contractor didn’t make a bid. Part of the reason for the huge jump in price has to do with equipment. CAO Michael Wildman explained to council that new equipment costs about $150,000 each, and that four specially designed tractors would be needed for this contract. Small town companies don’t usually have $600,000 worth of machines sitting around not in use. The current contractor’s equipment is likely paid off; all agreed the existing contract, which lasted

five years at $75 per hour, was a very good deal. The cost per year will go from an average $53,000 over 10 years to $84,000. Mayor David Reid said the 53 per cent increase staff and Stack cited is misleading. The contract is for 10 years, so the town is going from an average of $75 per hour to an average $118. That equates to about a 4.5 per cent annual increase. “The reality is that getting specialized equipment to sit on 24/7 standby in a small town is going to cost,” Reid later said via email. “The good news is that the sidewalk clearing is only a small part of the snow clearing budget and while all money spent is important to control, the increase in the sidewalk clearing equates to less than a .5 per cent increase in the overall tax levy.” Wildman said likely will not be any increase in the tax rate; new growth and other factors will cover it. LENGTHY CONTRACT

Stack was eventually persuaded to accept the higher costs. Council and staff went into a closed session to discuss the matter, which in-

FURNACE OFF ITS GAME?

As for the much anticipated work along Daniel Street, near the LCBO hill, We can help the mayor was less certain. Work was to reduce traffic to a crawl you take it to this autumn as crews upgraded water and the next level sewage piping. Work may be delayed until next year. “There is nothing definite yet,” Reid See the insert in said. “Right now everyone is busy. If the today’s paper contractor can’t do it, we may move to next year. There might be benefits for us if we wait.” He said there is no danger to the infrastructure in waiting one more winter. And that the current ™ work on Havey Street is a far bigger project than MOTORCOACH HOLIDAYS what will take place on Daniel Street. PRICED IN CANADIAN DOLLARS • ALL TAXES INCLUDED (Cruises excluded)

cluded the prospect of legal ramifications should the town back out of a tender process that a company entered on good faith and met with all the requirements. However, the council veteran still voted against awarding the contract “based on principle.” He said councils should not lock future local legislators into agreements that last 10 years. Stack checked with colleagues at the county level, all of whom said they never heard of a municipality signing a decade-long deal. He would have expected staff to come back to council with information showing no companies are interested in less than a 10-year contract. And that the cost would likely jump significantly. Then council could have acted with more knowledge. Staff also told council that about 95 per cent of the 2016 winter control budget was used last winter and spring, when a significant amount of snow came down. That leaves just 5 per cent for December. Should a snowfall occur before Jan. 1, staff will likely dip into reserves to pay for it. Reid noted that the Farmers’ Almanac this year is predicting a lot of snow this winter.

RA Centre costs startle councillors John Carter

John.carter@metroland.com

Suffering from Diabetes? Diabetes, one of the most common condition in our current day and age, can often turn into a “silent killer” in advanced stages. During the initial stages we are having many uncomfortable symptoms associated with this condition which interfere in one way or another with our lives. However in advanced stages diabetes can contribute to prolonging our suffering and often healing journeys are incredibly challenged and can even be fatal. I personally observed my grandfather suffer for many years from the ill effects of diabetes, where a wound wasn’t healing, which led to the amputation of a toe and later on even of his leg. Finally, as we see all too often, I saw, what used to be a strong vibrant man,my grandfather giving up and suffering to his final days.That was unfortunately well before I knew about Heilkunst. Diabetes is what I’d call more a challenging by-product of our industrial revolution era. In the majority of cases we can do a lot to try and prevent it - and by this I mean ourselves - not the Doctors. Lifestyle and of course eating habits are considered to be the main culprits in the prevention or the management of diabetes. Stress and emotional challenges should not be overlooked or discredited to be doing their influential part as well. Of course, just as with many other chronic conditions, the moment one organ is chronically challenged or damaged, it will have an effect on other organs as well.This is how the vicious cycle often starts. Our Heilkunst treatment will look at all facets of the diabetic condition, from prevention, hereditary challenges, life styles, nutritional habits to pain management. We will look at organ rejuvenation and will try to bring back a proper organ function of your pancreas. Our Live Blood Analysis will help assist any nutritional deficiencies, so you know where to put your money and efforts to rebuild your body, rather than shooting stars by taking a lot of supplements not knowing whether you actually need or benefit from them. I helped many people manage their diabetes to prevent any medication as well as bringing individuals off the needle to manage their diabetes just with medication. Can you imagine how grateful they are to have this new peace of mind? Can YOU imagine what kind of new freedom and peace it would be if YOU could also personally benefit from our treatment? Not even to mention how happy your spouses, children or loved ones would be to see you manage this condition in a new way. Take Control…Experience Heilkunst!

A proposal to spend up to $1.8 million to replace the run-down Braeside RA Centre isn’t going over well with three of the McNab-Braeside council members. While council agrees the aging recreation centre needs to be fixed up or replaced, councillors Mark MacKenzie, Heather Lang and Scott Brum have expressed concerned about the cost and scope of the project. Their comments came after a presentation to council Sept. 6 by Greenview Environmental Services consultant Tyler Peters. He unveiled two options generated in conjunction with a building committee that would see the RA Centre replaced by a new structure that would cost either an estimated $1.5 million or $1.8 million. Deputy Mayor and building committee member Brian Armsden argued that township residents had made it clear in the last municipal election and in a recent survey that they wanted better recreation facilities and programs. Building a new RA Centre is “delivering what constituents want and where they want it,” he said. “We’re simply meeting the needs of the community.” Lang said she was “taken aback” by the size of the proposed building. She said that at a town hall meeting the clear majority favoured a more central major recreation centre for the township, leaving the Braeside and White Lake facilities smaller. “I still think that’s the route to go. We

MacKenzie agreed that there appears to be more support for small facilities in Braeside and White Lake along with a larger central recreation centre eventually near the municipal office. “I’m very uncomfortable with a building this size (in Braeside). I support a much smaller satellite building.” He also argued that the township can’t afford such an expenditure with subdivision development stalled and the delay of the four-laning of Highway 17, which was expected to bring more growth to the area. “So I’m nervous about taking on

Council questioned the need for 3,500 or 4,200 square foot buildings to have four washrooms. Peters told them it was based on how many people the building could contain, the building code and new accessibility legislation. Council decided to have the building committee review Peters’ report and provide its thoughts to council. “Then we can vote and move on,” said Mayor Tom Peckett.

After 18 years, popular supper needs new host Anniversary set for Nov. 12 An Arnprior tradition is looking for a new host. The popular Arnprior and District Breast Cancer Support Group fall dinner will not be held this October. Instead, the group is holding a 20-year anniversary celebration Saturday, Nov. 12. In an announcement this week, the support group said that it is “informing our dear community” that after hosting the annual dinner for 18 years, “as life moves on with age, we feel it is time

to let others be a host.” Instead the community is being invited to join in the anniversary celebration from 2-4 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre “as we celebrate our past memories of this special group.” The group is “looking forward to seeing you for cake and coffee.” While the dinner may not be a go this year, the Breast Cancer Support Group meetings will continue every third Tuesday of the month at the Arnprior Public Library from 7 to 9 p.m.


Falun Gong supporters ask Arnprior councillors, residents for backing Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

A daughter and her friends were in Arnprior recently to ask town council and residents for help in lobbying against the Chinese government’s incarceration of her mother. Hongyan Lu is a new Canadian who together with husband Jay Brauneisen has travelled across Canada this summer to raise awareness of the fate of many Falun Gong (also Falun Dafa) practitioners in her former country. They stopped by Arnprior town hall on Sept. 9 where the mayor met with them and accepted a request for council to back their cause. Allegations of state-sanctioned physical and mental torture, forced labour, and organ harvesting have been well documented by a team of human-rights activists in China, including B’nai Brith Canada senior legal counsel David Matas and former Canadian MP David Kilgour. Chinese officials deny that surgeons are transplanting between 60,000 and 100,000 organs a year, a number that far surpasses the volume available from voluntary donors. “It has been going on for 17 years now and we want it to stop,” Lu said. “We are doing this tour because we want the killings of Falun Gong members to stop, and for the forced harvesting of organs to stop.” She said her mother was “abducted” by police while visiting other Falun Dafa practitioners in Shijiazhuang City. The movement has grown quickly over a short period to include tens of millions who perform spiritual meditation movements similar to tai chi while exercising their beliefs in “truthfulness, compassion and tolerance.” The government - which officially is communist hence atheistic - calls it a cult holding superstitious beliefs. “When my mother was first abducted, we were told she refused to offer up her identity. This is a strategy used to protect relatives and friends but also made it more difficult for us to locate her,” Lu said. “The regime simply denied they even had her in custody. One of my uncles is a judge in the Chinese legal system and one of my cousins is a police officer. They both tried and failed to gain access to my mother. “This situation was scary for me, as I feared she would disappear and be killed for her organs.” That was in June, around the time an updated report by the activists estimated between 60,000 and 100,000 prisoners of conscience, primarily Falun Dafa members, are killed in China each year for forced organ harvesting. Lu’s mom was arrested before, for three months in 2003, and released after her dad bribed police and took several police

Hongyan Lu and her husband Jay Brauneisen, centre, are outside Arnprior town hall to share the story of her mother’s incarceration and likely torture at the hands of the Chinese government. The regime is accused of harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners. and government workers “to luxury restaurants.” During the arrest, Lu said they broke into their home, ransacked it and stole valuables. After her release the harassment continued. “My father felt forced to divorce my mother because he couldn’t take the pressure any more. This pressure took different forms such as threatening to end my father’s employment, or contacting our neighbours in the apartment complex to harass my family and force my mother to quit practicing Falun Dafa,” Lu said. “The regime threatened our neighbours that they would lose their jobs if they did not co-operate. Only after my parents divorced was I able to get a passport to Canada.” Her mother started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998 while searching for a way to improve her health. She suffered from hepatitis B, cirrhosis, stomach problems and endometriosis. Lengthy hospitalizations and long-term medication were gone after a few months practicing Falun Dafa, Lu said. “After practicing Falun Dafa, both my mother and I benefited from better health and a positive, righteous mindset,” she said. “If the persecution had never started, I could have had a very happy family life and stayed close to my parents and relatives. “My story is only one of millions of practitioners’ families like mine who fell apart because of the persecution.” The family hasn’t heard from their matriarch in over three months. Someone who was held in the police station with her and since released said she was tortured and locked in a chair of metal bars, prevented from moving. “This destroyed her health and made it hard for her to walk or stand up and she’s

very weak,” Lu said. “Meanwhile she is forced to endure their brainwashing sessions.” She is not allowed a lawyer while awaiting her trial. “We have no idea what’s happening or what may happen to my mother under a regime without an independent or effective legal system,” Lu said. While touring from Edmonton to Ottawa and sharing her story, she said Canadians are often shocked and supportive. Many who knew of the issue believed the persecution had stopped. Brauneisen is from the Ottawa valley. He has supported his wife throughout the entire ordeal, but admits that at times the concept of organ harvesting seems too barbaric to belief. “It seems like a Hollywood sci-fi movie,” Brauneisen said. “China will threaten diplomatic and economic sanctions if you try to bring this up. That’s a lot of hot air. They need trade just as much as anyone.” He and their friends are asking Canadians to tell 10 friends and neighbours about the plight of Falun Dafa in China, call or write Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Scott Reid and other politicians, and contact the department of Global Affairs Canada. Lu is asking her government to condemn the Chinese government and ask for the release of all Falun Gong practitioners, along with an end to the alleged mass killings. Meanwhile, she forges on to more towns and cities to share her mother’s story. “Her actions did not violate any laws,” Lu said. “This constitutes persecution of religious belief. My greatest concern is that my mother will be killed for her organs or severely tortured.” To reach the couple, call 613-302-5311 or email hongyan.lu@thewisdom.org.

OPINION

Connected to your community

Learning from our fair friends Fun’s over: time to get serious. School’s back, the plus 30-degree weather has finally drifted away and fair season is over. With the last of the Renfrew County fairs wrapping up Sunday, it truly is back-to-work time. No more fooling around. There is plenty to do. All this construction work has to be finished before the s… flies (sorry about using the S word so early, but there have been flurries already in Alberta). There’s the county’s new official plan to finalize. No easy task to come up with a consensus considering the strong contradicting opinions expressed at the public hearings. Every one of our area’s municipalities has challenges facing them this fall, not the least of which is how best to get the provincial government back on track with four-laning of Highway 17 up the Valley and persuade it to do something more than removing the sales tax to ease the ridiculous increases in electricity costs. Arnprior needs to get to the bottom of the water disruption and work out what type of housing mix it wants going forward. McNabBraeside has to determine how to rehabilitate its deteriorating buildings in an affordable fashion. Several municipalities are trying to figure out if joint recycling/garbage tenders are feasible and all rural townships are facing the daunting task of figuring out how to come up with budgets that include another substantial boost for policing costs. So hopefully, our municipal leaders have returned from the summer break refreshed, reenergized and ready to do battle for their constituents. If they want some inspiration on how to face the daunting tasks ahead, they could do well to take heed of the wonderful example provided by the worthy folks (almost exclusively volunteers) who brought you fairs in Arnprior, Beachburg, Cobden and Renfrew (as well as the White Pine Festival and McNab Days). The celebrations of rural life play a major role their communities’ identities and are full of lessons to which we all can relate.

The fairs demonstrate that rural folks can succeed if they are resourceful. Fair organizers can’t control the weather, but they can adapt on the fly when it threatens their event. Faced with two days of rain of biblical proportions, Arnprior Fair organizers decided over morning coffee on the Saturday to turn the demolition derby into a mud race and cut the entrance fare in half. That certainly helped salvage some of the lost attendance (and not all is lost regarding the demolition derby, as it will be run as the Fall Brawl Sept. 24). Fortunately the fair board had arranged for a strong entertainment line-up, which attracted decent crowds despite the unco-operative weather, and a number of new attractions (car, horse shows) Sunday, which boosted the crowds that day. It pays to be in tune with what your community wants. The fairs also remind us of the importance agriculture plays in Valley life. And they show that if you offer good clean family fun, people will come. They prove that rural residents can host major events that are both entertaining and educational (you don’t have to go into the city, where it will cost a lot more, to have a good time). While the major acts draw in the crowds, it’s heart-warming to see people respond so positively to the local entertainers given a chance to shine, like they did at the the Arnprior Fair car show. But most of all the fair organizers show that if we want something done right, we shouldn’t depend on Toronto or Ottawa for funds or guidance. If we have strong and innovative leadership on the local level, we can get things accomplished, and have fun doing it. So thank you, organizers of our community festivals and fairs. You’ve provided a shining example of how to get things done despite the challenges and uncertainties thrown at you by an increasingly unpredictable Mother Nature and ever more complex urban-centric society. Kudos to you all.

Council needs to do more to protect water To the editor:

An open letter to McNab-Braeside council: The recent water situation in Arnprior made me think of our own water supply in Braeside. So many of us depend on wells for all our needs; but what protection is there for the aquifers which supply those wells? Mike Battiston’s recent letter to the editor in the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide (Aug. 18) stated the facts very clearly. Because of the Miller Quarry operation, we have to be concerned about both the quality and quantity of our water. What exactly have you, as our Township Council, done to put a contingency plan in place? Were you even aware of the site plan changes that Miller has tried to make despite the OMB ruling? Do you know how dangerous these are to our water supply? I have heard that they don’t want to test the water for petroleum contaminants or monitor the wetlands, both

agreed upon at OMB. Or that they are trying to extract much deeper into the quarry than allowed. Why is it that FACT-MB seems to be the only one trying to protect our water? And from what Mike Battiston wrote in the paper, you haven’t even paid FACT-MB for the use of their experts at OMB. Why not? How many of you actually attended the OMB hearing? We know that if disaster strikes and we have no water, the chance of Miller taking responsibility is zero; a high ranking MOECC official made it clear that we would never prove Miller was the cause. When you wanted our votes, you said that water was the highest priority. So what plan have you put in place for the eventuality of the whole community water source becoming undrinkable? What have you done to protect our water?

OPINION

Connected to your community

Government should create Department of Peace Support the Terry Fox To the community of Arnprior and area: In recognition of the International Day of Peace on Sept. 21, the Arnprior and Area Chapter of the Canadian Peace Initiative (CPI) is putting forward some ideas and examples for increasing our capacity for building and maintaining peace, both nationally and globally. This letter focuses on efforts to establish a federal Department of Peace and also recognizes leaders and global efforts dedicated to peace building. It is encouraging that Canada seems to preparing for a renewed role as a peace builder. The apologies made by federal government representatives for past wrongs to Japanese-Canadians (internment during WW2), Chinese-Canadians (Head Tax) and, more recently, Indigenous Canadians (residential schools) and through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission show that Canada is seeking to be at peace with itself. Being at peace with oneself increases the ability to work beyond our borders for greater peace. Hopefully, Canada can play a greater peace-building role internationally, working to enhance alternatives that address emerging conflicts, arms reduction, human rights, and the security of persons and communities.

While such work may frequently occur in concert with friends and allies, at times Canada may need to challenge traditional ties. A federal Department of Peace could not only advance such efforts globally but could also support training of peace professionals, restorative justice programs and peace education at home. And Canadians working for this end are not alone. Organizations, citizens and officials in over 40 nations, including the United States and European countries, are similarly working for the creation of national peace ministries and infrastructures. You can support these efforts in Canada by going to www.canadianpeaceinitiative.ca and signing the petition to establish a Department of Peace as outlined in Bill C-373. Leaders, scientists and artists around the world are also giving us similar messages. Pope Francis has declared 2016 as the year to ‘Overcome Indifference and Win Peace’. Dr. Ursula Franklin, metallurgist and Canadian peace advocate, left us these words, which build on the Pope’s declaration, “Peace is not the absence of war. It is the presence of justice and the absence of fear.”

And the local CPI exhibit currently on display at the Arnprior Public Library showcases the work of artists in war-torn countries who have converted weapons into art or tools under the theme ‘Weapons to Art: Transcending the Past’. Such work can inspire us to create lifeaffirming artwork, tools and memorials as a way of remembering those in the military who died fighting for peace. We believe that they would choose not to be forever remembered with war and death but rather with the life and freedom they wanted to protect. Let’s never stop imagining and creating the future we want for ourselves, our children and all the people of the world. Please consider signing the petition at www.canadianpeaceinitiative.ca, visiting the exhibit at the Arnprior Public Library, or coming to a brief time for reflection at the Peace Pole at Galilee Centre, 398 John St. N., 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21, the International Day of Peace.

Run this Sunday

To the Editor: We are now well into the month of September and for millions of Canadians, that means that the annual Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research  is quickly approaching. This is the ultimate autumn tradition where families, friends, and work colleagues join together to raise money to help  Canadian cancer researchers reach their important goals. For 36 years, Terry Fox’s dream of a world free of cancer continues to move forward. This year’s event on  this Sunday, Sept. 18  will be happening in more than 220 locations across Ontario (including from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Arnprior Fairgrounds). The Terry Fox Run is an  event void of corporate sponsorship. This was Terry’s wish. Its success is due to the thousands of dedicated volunteers that organize local events, passionate participants that get involved year-after-year, and generous donors who know that their hard earned money is being managed responsibly. The Run does not charge a fee to participate, nor does it require a minimum donation or money to be raised. The Terry Fox Foundation thanks you for the support you have provided us over many years and hopes you will be able to continue the same this year.   Paul Mateer, communications Terry Fox Foundation

10 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide - Thursday, September 15, 2016

There is a cairn on Canoe Lake in Algonquin Park dedicated to Tom Thomson, the famous Canadian artist who drowned in that lake. On it resides an eloquent epitaph written by friend and fellow artist J.E.H MacDonald. One verse states that Nature “revealed itself wonderfully to him.” Recently I had a day when Nature did just that for me. It was a cool and misty predawn when I arrived at Algonquin Park’s Argue Lake. Soon I was watching a large Beaver groom itself atop a feeding bed a mere 30 feet away. It was too dark for photographs but I was content just to watch. Suddenly the silence was broken by the howls of wolves, emanating somewhere near the far end of the lake. I waited a few minutes after the magnificent chorus ended, and then I howled. The pack replied immediately. I wanted to wait until sunrise before looking for the wolves. Half an hour passed and then dawn broke. I quietly paddled my canoe to the far end of the lake, still shrouded with mist. Once there, I scanned nearby slopes for wolves, but saw none. I howled from my canoe and soon the wolves replied, but to the east. With adrenalin coursing

through my body, I watched to see if one might make an appearance. Excitement peaked when two dark forms scrambled down a nearby hill. But the animals were black, and Eastern Wolves are rarely that colour. A Beaver slapped its tail, informing me that the dark animals had entered its space. Moments later, four Otters came snorting and huffing past my canoe, sticking their heads out of the water like giant periscopes to get a better view of me. Half an hour passed and no wolves, so I paddled back to my car. I then struck out on foot, following an old logging road that ran parallel to the lake. I walked slowly and quietly, stepping on moss whenever possible. After a while I left the road and bushwhacked eastward,

moving slowly and avoiding stepping on sticks. Eventually I came to a large pond. After several minutes of scanning, I spotted the head of a large wolf sticking out from Bracken across the pond from me. It stared in my direction, but I was hidden. I howled, and it stood up and walked into full view. It howled back and began to bark, an indication that it was the pack’s dominant leader telling the intruding wolf to leave their territory. I barked back, and the wolf responded even more aggressively. After several minutes of exchanging vocal affronts, the beautiful animal walked away, content that the impudent intruder was not going to cross the pond. It has been 26 years since I last had a chance (unsuccessful) to photograph a howling wolf. Thus, I was ecstatic to finally achieve a long-standing goal. I was also delighted over my encounter with Otters, plus getting a picture-perfect shot of a Ring-necked Duck taking off in the mist. I pinched myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming; it was indeed a morning when Nature revealed herself wonderfully to me. The Nature line is email is mruntz@start.ca.

THE CORPORATION OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF MISSISSIPPI MILLS NOTICE OF COMPLETION Municipality of Mississippi Mills Schedule ‘B’ Class Environmental Assessment Wells 7 and 8

The Municipality of Mississippi Mills (the Municipality) has undertaken a planning process to assess the short-term rated capacity of Wells 7 and 8, building upon recommendations from the related Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Master Plan (Almonte Ward) completed in 2012. As part of the process, background information was reviewed and alternative solutions concepts were developed and evaluated based on several criteria, including impacts to the natural, social cultural and economic environments. A hydrogeological evaluation was also completed to assist in determining the preferred alternative. Furthermore, as part of the Class EA process for reviewing the rated capacity of Wells 7 and 8, public comment during the evaluation of alternative solutions was requested. This project is being carried out in accordance with the Terms of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) process, which is approved under the Environmental Assessment Act. The Project File of the Schedule ‘B’ Class EA has now been finalized and identifies the preferred alternative to meet the Municipality’s short-term water supply requirements. It has been determined that increasing the rated capacity of Wells 7 and 8 by 6.7 L/s to 44.7 L/s is required to address the Municipality’s increased supply demands. By this Notice, information including the Project File is being made available to the public for a thirty (30) day review period in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class EA process. Interested persons may review this document and provide comments to the Municipality. Subject to comments received as a result of this Notice and the receipt of necessary approvals, the Municipality may then proceed with the works. Project information is available to the public at the municipal office and the municipal website, www.mississippimills.ca. The comment period will end on October 8, 2016.

The SPP came into effect on January 1, 2015 and the Clean Water Act 2006. Municipalities are required to amend their Official Plans and other policy documents to comply.

If you are interested, please submit a brief description of your interest and skills by noon on Friday, October 21, 2016 to Roxanne Sweeney, 613-256-2064 ext 260 rsweeney@mississippimills.ca

Zoning By By-law Amendment The purpose of the Zoning By-law Amendment is to consider proposed revisions to the Zoning By-law with respect to the Source Water Protection Policies.

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

NCC prepares to tackle invasive buckthorn in Gillies Grove Those who are familiar with conservation may be aware that invasive species are one of the greatest threats to biodiversity. Species are considered invasive if they are non-native or exotic to the area, and their presence or spread threatens native species, communities and ecosystems. Invasive species are typically adaptable, reproduce quickly, have few or no predators, and can outcompete native species for resources such as food and habitat. Left unchecked, invasive species can have devastating effects on their surroundings. Part of the role of the Natural Conservancy of Canada (NCC) in managing the lands at Gillies Grove in Arnprior is to monitor the area for invasive species that could pose a threat to the native and at-risk species on the property. NCC has documented 22 non-native species in the Gillies Grove nature reserve, many of which are considered invasive, including common and glossy false buckthorn, Japanese knotweed, piper’s oregon-grape, garlic mustard and purple loosestrife. This fall, NCC staff will be working to reduce the extent of common and glossy false Trained NCC staff will be attempting to rid Gillies Grove of the invasive species Buck- buckthorn in Gillies Grove. Buckthorn is a small tree native to Eurthorn this fall. As a result, sections of trails will be closed and signs will be posted. This asia that was introduced to Canada as an map shows areas where the work will take place. ornamental shrub. It grows in dense thickets, crowding out native plants, and it can even host oat rust, a fungus that affects the yield RE/MAX John Roberts Broker and quality of oats. HALLMARK

REALTY LTD., BROKERAGE

Staff will use a combination of control methods recommended by the Ontario Invasive Plant Council to reduce and eliminate the buckthorn. Individuals up to a metre in height will be pulled by hand, and larger individuals will be cut and the stump treated with herbicide to prevent re-sprouting. NCC staff are trained and certified in control methods, and will be carrying out this work this fall during suitable weather conditions. Sections of trails will be closed while NCC conducts this work, and signs will be posted to indicate closures (see map). Successful eradication of invasive species requires a combination of control measures and prevention. The public can help: • avoid planting non-native invasive species in your garden; • find native planting suggestions at http:// www.ontarioinvasiveplants.ca; • dispose of garden waste responsibly, and keep garden material out of natural lands; • remove plant fragments, seeds and mud from your clothing, shoes, tires and pets when you leave an area populated by invasive species. If you have any questions or concerns, or would like additional information, please contact Brenda Van Sleeuwen (NCC co-ordinator, conservation biology – Eastern Ontario) at brenda.vansleeuwen@natureconservancy.ca or 613-449-3132.

He’ll say a friendly ‘hello’ to folks who regularly pass by. If they ask about the bright pink sign in the wheelchair-bound man’s hand, he will offer an opinion. “I’m trying to stop them from cutting live trees,” Perry said on Sept. 7. “Yes, they have a bug and they are dying. But they are still living beings.” The Town of Arnprior has for a few years now cut trees that are infected by the emerald ash borDEREK DUNN/METROLAND er.

zealous with its removal program. It ought to wait until the trees have “lost their leaves and bark” before they are killed. “All life matters. Everything has a right to live: trees, bugs, snakes,” he said. “I’m just a compassionate person about all living things.” PRESERVING NATURE

He holds the view that nature should take its course when it comes to the lifecycle of other trees and animals. Town council, he said, is “too paranoid” about a lawsuit should a branch break off an almost dead tree and injure someone. Perry is taking his case to the Sept. 12 regular council meeting, 6:30 p.m., at the fire hall. When done with that, he plans to protest the use of wood chips at playgrounds. They cause splinters in children’s bare feet and serve as nests for mice and other critters, he said.

HOME, GARDEN & RENOVATIONS 2016

Energy-efficient ‘passive’ homes promoted in tour A ‘PassiveHouse’ in McNab-Braeside was one of the homes featured in the Green Energy Doors Open tour on the weekend. The home at 96 Libbys Rd. was open for inspection all day Saturday as part of the province-wide showcase of ‘green’ energy efficient homes. The demonstration PassiveHouse is being built on a 10-acre property just off of McLean Drive. EkoBuilt owner and contractor Paul Kealey said the home demonstrates the fundamental simplicity of the PassiveHouse concept. The house is “surprisingly affordable” considering it has the latest technologies, says the company, adding that it is easy to build and operate.

Ontario apple growers expect record crop this season Expect incredible sweetness and flavour from this year’s Ontario apple crop. A hot and dry Ontario summer with plenty of sunshine is translating into an extremely sweet and flavourful apple crop this year. It’s sunshine that changes starch levels in the apple into sugar, so this year’s apple crop is expected to be one for the record books when it comes to sweetness, says the chair of the Ontario Apple Growers. And local growers are agreeing with him. “I’ve been growing apples in Ontario for 40 years and these are the sweetest apples we’ve ever had,” says Charles Stevens, who farms near Newcastle. “If ever there has been a year for Ontarians to enjoy the great taste of Ontario apples, this is it.”

Unlike several recent years, apple growers were not hit with any frost damage this year, which impacts fruit size and shape, and there also haven’t been any significant hail events to affect the crop. Perfect pollination conditions in the spring followed by plenty of warm temperatures got the apples off to a good start, and although drought conditions in some parts of the province’s growing regions will result in some smaller sized apples, the overall crop is looking promising with volumes at normal levels.   “The size of the apples will depend on the location of the orchard and whether or not growers received rain or were able to use irrigation,” explains Stevens. “Some very timely rains in August in most areas of the province have

15,000 acres in Ontario. The province’s major apple-producing areas are along the shores of Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. The farm gate value of the Ontario apple crop is about $60 million, which includes sales to fresh and processing markets

as well as on-farm/pickyour-own. The Ontario Apple Growers represents the province’s 200 commercial apple farmers. Visit www.onapples.com for recipe ideas and grower profiles, or follow Ontario Apple Growers on Twitter and Facebook.

ADHS grad honoured for Relay for Life efforts The Canadian Cancer Society has recognized the “incredible volunteer efforts” of a former Arnprior District High School student by choosing him to be the first recipient of a prestigious new scholarship. The society’s Renfrew County community fundraising specialist Jessica Khouri reports that Curtis McGrath first took on a leadership role at his high school Relay For Life in 2012. When the daughter of a cancer survivor thanked him at the event, saying events like the relay are the reason why she still has her dad, he knew he had made a difference. “I am so proud to introduce myself as a volunteer for the Canadian Cancer Society and I will never let up in our fight against cancer,” says McGrath, who now continues to be a part of Relay For Life as a committee member at the University of Ottawa. Thanks to the generous donation of the Bates Family, supporters of the Canadian Cancer Society, McGrath is the first recipient of the StackhouseBates Family Volunteer Scholarship and has been awarded $5,000 towards his Bachelors of Commerce. He was chosen for his leadership role in establishing Relay For Life at the University of Ottawa. “Curtis always steps up to help out and his dedication to our Relay For Life Youth Program has been outstanding,” says Andrew Croll, a youth program specialist with Canadian Cancer Society. “It has been a pleasure working with Curtis and we are thankful for his continued support in the future.” McGrath was among several of applicants from the society’s youth volunteers who are making a difference in communities across Ontario. The recipient of this scholarship is a post-secondary student who JESSICA KHOURI/SUBMITTED has made an exceptional commitment to, and impact on, the society’s mission of eradicating cancer and Former Arnprior District High School graduate Curimproving the quality of life for people living with tis McGrath is the first recipient of the $5,000 Stackhouse-Bates Family Volunteer Scholarship. cancer and their families.

Measles cases confirmed: keep shots up-to-date Staff

The confirmation of three measles cases in Ottawa and Lanark has prompted the Renfrew County and District Health Unit (RCDHU) to urge people to ensure their children’s immunizations are up-todate. Ottawa Public Health (OPH) and the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit (LGL) are investigating three related cases of measles in unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated individuals. The health units are working closely with local health care providers, hospitals and the province to contact individuals and families who may have been exposed to the infectious cases. The Renfrew County health unit notes that the risk of contracting measles in Renfrew County is low for those who have been vaccinated. However, given

that measles is highly contagious, it is “very important that you ensure your measles immunization is up-to-date, it says in a news release last week. It also urges parent to report to public health every time their child is vaccinated. Measles is a virus that lives in the nose and throat mucus of an infected person. It can spread to others through coughing and sneezing. The infection is more severe in adults and infants than in children and can lead to ear infections, pneumonia, swelling of the brain and even death. It is possible that members of the public were exposed at either CHEO Aug. 22-28 or the Ottawa Hospital Aug. 23-24 to the three people stricken with measles. The health unit is asking people who have not previously had measles or have not been fully vaccinated, and

who might have been exposed in those areas to: watch for any signs and symptoms of measles; avoid contact with individuals who are at high risk for complications of measles (infants less than 12 months of age, pregnant women, and people with weak immune systems) for 21 days after exposure date; contact the Health Info Line at 1-800-267-1097, ext. 666. Early symptoms of measles may include fever, cough, and tiny white spots in the mouth. Within three to seven days, a red blotchy rash will appear, first on the face and then spreading to the body, arms and legs. I f you think that you or a family member has measles, contact a health care provider immediately. For more information about measles or immunization, visit www.rcdhu.com.

Olympian Melissa Bishop receives hero’s welcome Tiffany Lepack

tlepack@metroland.com

The Ottawa Valley welcomed Olympian Melissa Bishop home with open arms on Sept. 10. Despite the rain more than a thousand people lined the streets of Eganville to watch the parade. More than 200 vehicles, walkers, horses, a band, floats and many more participated in a parade in her honour. Bonnechere Valley Township also proclaimed Saturday Melissa Bishop Day in Eganville and the County of Renfrew is also working on creating a role model award in her name (she will be the first recipient). Bishop was overwhelmed with the support and called it pretty incredible. She almost couldn’t even get a moment to herself before it all started. “I just ran over to go pee and I could hardly get out the door without a few pictures,” said Bishop. “So it’s been pretty nice to come home and see everybody.” It was hard for her to put into words what all of the support has meant to her. “I wish there were other words for thank you, but my gosh when everyone is out here

braving the weather, it’s raining unfortunately, but we are not going to melt,” said Bishop. “So just a really big thank you for their continued support, their unconditional support, no matter what. “I could have come home in 30th place and I still would have got a welcome home like this.” Bishop competed in her second Olympics in Rio as the reigning Canadian 800-m champ but finished fourth with a time of 1:57:02, just shy of a medal. “I’m still reeling with the race,” said Bishop. “It’s not something I am quite settled with yet. Obviously the support from home and all of Canada is making it okay.” Her goal now is to compete at the Olympic Games in Toyko in 2020. Although fourth place was not what she wanted, she had a great time in Rio. “They put on a great Olympic Games and the media unfortunately built it up into something that wasn’t going to be as good as it was. “It happens all the time with the Olympics,” said Bishop. “We had a great time, my family had a great time, it was a really successful event.”

More than a thousand people lined the streets of Eganville in the rain on Sept. 10 to honour hometown Olympian Melissa Bishop. Above, she shares a smile with her parents Alison and Doug Bishop, during the event.

Countrymen, three others to become hall of famers Sept. 25 Staff

The Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame is set to induct four new members including the Countrymen, who have been one of this area’s most popular bands for 55 years. The induction will be held at a gala ceremony hosted by two Valley Heritage Radio personalities at the Centrepointe Theatre in Nepean on Sunday, Sept. 25. Valley Heritage radio general manager Jason Marshall and afternoon DJ Christa Pare will serve as emcees at the gathering that begins at 7 p.m. Following in the footsteps of Mac Beattie, the very first musician inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1981, are the Countrymen, Gord Barnes, Clarence Bowes and the late Jim Hickey. They will be inducted in the Hall of Fame’s 35th anniversary awards show and induction ceremonies. In addition to recognizing the lifetime contributions of the four inductees, the event’s organizers promise country music fans an evening of some of the best entertainers the Ottawa Valley has to offer. “We’re excited about our 35th anniversary show and we can promise you a great evening of entertainment as we induct our 2016 Hall of Fame members,” said TIFFANY LEPACK/METROLAND the Hall of Fame organization’s president Jim Long. “We will be recognizing their many achievements and A selection of the Countrymen at a recent performance in Renfrew include Kent Smith, Robert Johnston, Kirk Warren, Bob contributions that have furthered country music in our Schwartz and Darrel Mooney, the group will be inducted into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame on Sept. 25. community.” together in 2016, having formed in June of the Valley far and wide and Clarence takes JIM HICKEY COUNTRYMEN 1961.

Local rider, her horses provincial champions again After a long season of competing across Eastern Ontario in the Trillium Equestrian circuit, McNab-Braeside resident Stephanie Skarica recently qualified for and competed at the Ontario Provincial Equestrian Show Jumping Championships. Skarica competed in two divisions against the best horse/rider combinations from across the province of Ontario. Her results at the event Sept. 1-4 at the Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park in Toronto were outstanding, as she represented the Upper Ottawa Valley with talent, determination, class, style and humility. Skarica, who rides out of JCS Stables on Scheel Drive in McNabBraeside, was up against 35 of the best riders and horses in Eastern Ontario just to qualify for the Ontario provincial championships. It was the third year in a row she has won at this level in the season finale. The Provincial championships bring the top seven horse/rider combinations of each competitive division of the seven area zones in Ontario. Points are accumulated from each show of the season to determine a horse/riders position in a particular zones standings at season’s end. Skarica participated in eight

shows throughout the summer in the Eastern Ontario zone. She competed in the Large Pony Hunter 2’9”, Trillium Hunter 3’3” and ‘A’ equitation over fences divisions. She rode her pony Circassian in the Large Pony Hunter division and her horse Rohan in the Trillium Hunter division. Additionally, Taylor Mulligan of Merrickville competed with Skarica’s horse Rohan in the Low Hunter 3 division. After eight shows throughout the region in the Eastern zone, Skarica finished in first in the Large Pony Hunter division to win the Eastern zone championship. This allowed her to qualify Circassian for the provincial championships. There were 15 competitors in the Eastern zone throughout the season in this division. In the Trillium Hunter division, Skarica finished the season in second in the Eastern zone to secure a spot for Rohan at the provincial championships. There were nine competitors in the Eastern zone in this division. In the ‘A’ Equitation over fences division, Skarica finished the season in first to win her second Eastern zone championship for the year and secure a spot at the provincial championships. In the Low Hunter division, Taylor Mulligan and Skarica’s horse 691 RIVER ROAD $174,800 (BRAESIDE) 2BED/1BATH

overall at this competition in this division last year. The 3’3” Trillium Hunter division consisted of 27 competitors from across Ontario. Skarica and Rohan placed in 4 of the 5 rounds, earning a 5th-place as well as three 1st-place ribbons in their five classes. These placings put them first in overall points for this division, earning her and Rohan the prestigious title of being the 2016 Ontario Provincial Champions in the Trillium Hunter division for the second year in a row. They also won this division at the 2015 Ontario Provincial Championships. In the “A” Equitation over fences class, Skarica finished a respectable 9th place out of 27 entries. She won this division in 2014. The Low Hunter 3’ jumping division consisted of 38 competitors. Mulligan, riding Rohan, earned two 1sts, and two 5th-place ribbons in their five classes.. These placings put them second in overall points for this division, earning her and Rohan the prestigious title of being the 2016 Ontario Provincial Reserve Champions in the Low Hunter division. Fans of the sport say it was “another absolutely incredible showing on the big stage for Stephanie Skarica and her horses Circassian and Rohan, as well as an extremely

proud moment for JCS Stables and the little township of McNab-Braeside.” To win a single division championship at this year-end competition is very special, but to win two division championships in the same year on completely different horses, and to win for the third year in a row, is truly amazing. After eight years of working hard, being highly dedicated and extremely determined, Skarica has once again achieved a truly awesome goal. Nine-year-old Rohan, who was born and bred in McNab-Braeside at the JCS Stables facility, is a true champion for all locals to be proud of, winning the Trillium Hunter provincial championship for the second year in row in only his second year of competing. JCS Stables is a fully equipped boarding, equestrian, and competition facility located between Renfrew and Arnprior, being the only show barn from the Upper Ottawa Valley that regularly competes at both Trillium and A circuit levels. JCS stables offers an abundance of well schooled ponies and horses for sale or lease (www.JCSstables. com). For those interested in joining the lesson and/or show team, call Julie Skarica at 613-622-7757 or email at julie@JCSstables.com.

Arnprior Oldtimers Hockey League registration date nears Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

The coveted Vince Herrick Cup is up for grabs again this year with the start of Arnprior Oldtimers Hockey League set to begin early next month. It is the cup’s eighth year for the Tuesday night league of topnotch old guys boasting an average age of just 51 last season. But the league goes back much further than that. One team is represented by a car dealership that closed its lot in about 1990. A four-team league – Danata Relics, Lorne’s Electric, Play-ItAgain-Sports, and The Legion – has players battling it out weekly from Oct. 4 to late March. A playoff tournament takes place with the top team hoisting the cup all the way to a pub where all teams gather and toast to great memories, fun times and active living. “It’s all about good guys coming out to be around good guys,” said Clint Pettigrew, organizer and Danata captain. “The teams are fair. You can’t get more even teams

DEREK DUNN/METROLAND

The Arnprior Oldtimers Hockey League is gearing up for another exciting season. The final official sign-up is Tuesday, Sept. 20 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Play-It-Again Sports. After that, registration goes up slightly. than this. We want it to be fun, but competitive too.” Player names are tossed in a hat for the ‘draft’ process, which Pettigrew says takes place “at an undisclosed location” and assigned

teams from there. Some exceptions can be made for car-pooling, shared childcare reasons and the like. But basically the teams are picked with all the impartiality of a blindfolded player tossing sticks

from centre ice. After all teams have played one another, trades could take place to ensure competitive action going forward for the two or three fans that sometimes come out. The extra seating will be reduced this year because the league will move from A pad to B at Nick Smith Centre. Pettigrew said many skaters maintain the ice is harder and smoother on that side, and the dressing rooms are much newer and larger. The showers are also better. Also new this year is the start time. The first game of the night will take place at 8:30 p.m. followed by a second at 9:45. Games are two periods with referees and a scorekeeper. Although the league for 40 year olds and up is not scrambling for players and its bank account is fine, Pettigrew still encourages more to join up. It’s a great way to stay healthy and spend some quality guy time with only the odd heart attack joke tossed in. “Hey – if you need the defib, we

have one. We’ll zap you back,” he said. “Talk to your buddies about joining too. If you’ve played a little hockey, it’ll be a lot of fun.” He and the other organizers Greg Verch, Marc Legault, Dave Flaherty and treasurer and ‘knower-of-all-things’ Al Rowsom - are considering a golf tournament for October. They welcome input. The league is on the hunt for one more goalie. And as an extra incentive this year, goaltenders are charged only half price. Cost this year is the same as many in the past: $300. It can be paid by cash or cheque during registration night, 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at Play-It-AgainSports at the corner of Daniel and Elgin streets. Drop by any time before or after to pay, though the staff may not have answers to detailed questions. After registration night, the cost bumps up to $320. The league is on Facebook too; search for ‘Arnprior Oldtimers Hockey League’. For more information (and to hear who the 20152016 champions are), call Pettigrew at 613-614-4740.

Once upon a time, in a vibrant, verdant land, there was a Course of Golfe called Mountain Creek, as it was footed a most mountainous hill and, yes, it did and still does have a creek. As was done in that time (last month), the Young, the Brave and the Foolish would pit themselves against one another as has been done since times of yore. This was done not with jouster, horse and lance but on foot, with cylindrical bags on wheels carrying an arsenal of weapons known as Drivers, Hybrids, Wedges and Putters. The objective then and now was to have one’s ball obtain the hole 18 times in less strokes than one’s opponent. The Knights of this Realm pitting them-

selves against each other were none other than athletic young Gregory of Schaepper (14 years old) and the silver-haired, moustachioed Stewart of Thompson (66). Naturally, the age difference between the two was of great interest to spectators. Would the sapling spring forth and win the day? Would the tall venerable oak withstand the winds of youth? This was a Match to observe indeed! Gregory, the sapling, is a sweet and happy lad passionate about golfe. He is humble recounting how he knocked his handicap (meaning his ability to score) in half, all in one golfe season; a remarkable achievement as any struggling golfer knows. He swings his Driver with youthful abandon and verve. Stewart, the Tall, being seasoned, had years of play under his belt and a handicap of 11 to prove it. See MATCH, page 39

It is with great sadness that the family of Ray Goodyear announce his sudden passing on September 2 2016, at age 94. Ray will be sadly missed by his wife and best friend (of over 60 years) Holly Goodyear and their children, Julia McNaughton (Gerry McNaughton, deceased), Andrew Goodyear (Elizabeth Henry), his four grandchildren, Jennifer McNaughton, Cameron McNaughton, Raymond Goodyear and Tabatha Donegal. Ray was an honourary Uncle to Linda Munro-Hunter and her two sons, Geoffrey Hunter (Kelly Winterberg) and Matthew Hunter (Gabriella Hunter). Ray is also survived by his two brothers, Cyril and Frank Goodyear (Deer Lake, NL) and he is predeceased by two sisters, Hilda Cooper and Margaret Butt. Ray was born in Grand Falls, NL on July 28 1922 and was an avid outdoorsman throughout his life - hunter, fisherman, camper, builder of kayaks and canoes, and as with a lot of Newfoundlanders, was a gifted storyteller. Two days after his 18th birthday, Ray volunteered with the British Navy and served all six years of WW II in the Pacific Ocean and North Africa. Even though his ship was blown up in the English Channel the day after VE Day, Ray survived without a scratch. Ray immigrated to Canada in 1948 and shortly thereafter started a long career (39 years) with Ontario Hydro. Retired in 1987, Ray and Holly moved from the Toronto area to the cottage in Calabogie, and about ten years ago built a home in Renfrew. A graveside ceremony was held on Monday September 5 at 2:30pm at the Hilcrest Cemetery in Calabogie Ontario. Those who desire may make a memorial donation in Ray’s memory to Renfrew Legion #148, or to the ALS Society. Arrangements may be made through the Anderson Funeral Home, Renfrew.

COADY, Sean Douglas Remembering my fun and loving brother… my best friend… who left this earth, much too soon, September 16, 2006. Ten years have passed… Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you and wish for one more laugh, one more hug. Time passes… the grief remains, but I know that you would say… Keep my memory with you, For memories never die. I will always be there with you, When you look up in the sky. When your heart is heavy And you feel you are alone, Reach deep down inside yourself For your heart is now my home. I will always be there with you I will never go away I will live on within your heart Each and every day.

Ten Years Have Passed

COADY, Sean Douglas In loving memory of our dear son, who tragically was taken too soon, September 16, 2006. Every day our hearts are filled with sorrow, Wondering how we will make it through tomorrow. Our time with you was precious, And the memories we have are too. The love we share together keeps us close to you. Maybe we cannot touch your hand or see your smiling face, Maybe we cannot hear your voice or feel your warm embrace, But, there is something we will always have, Tucked safely in our hearts, Our love for you… your love for us… will never let us part.

Match play a battle of young and old They did not come to the first tee easily, for each first had to battle the other Knights of the Green to obtain the finalistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; position. Gregory the Younger recounted his battles: first to fall was Jim of Ackerman. Feeling the wrath of his putter were Ray of Tosh, then Don of Petzold, and finally, he gave Bob of Davis a hard go. But there he was, the youngest Knight, curlyhaired, eager and a little nervous on the first tee facing the renown Silver Fox: Stewart of Thompson. Stewart the Elder, for his part, is a quiet, focused and kind man yet his competitive spirit is alive and well as evidenced by the twinkle in his eye. He swings his Driver with gusto, vitality and accuracy (well, maybe not so much). To gain entry to the final match, he first faced down Rick of Sulpher. Next up and down was Steve of Murray. As one competitor had left the field, he got a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;byeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; but then was challenged by Jimmy G of Grenier whom he bested. The scene was now set: he and Gregory would go head to head. Stewart having the lower handicap, would give Gregory five strokes on the Courseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toughest holes (1, 2, 5, 11, 13) to equalize the play (this being part of The Rules). What follows is a description of play, the terms of which might be familiar only to those loving the game of Stick and Ball, and letting the Big Dog Bark. It was a fine and gloriously sunny summer day when the two opponents, as different as Night and Day, met on the first of 36 tees at 7:30 a.m. Yes, they would walk and play 36 holes to determine the final outcome of the 2016 Match Play. After the first 18 goles, Stewart was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;up 3â&#x20AC;&#x2122;, meaning ahead by three strokes. But 18 holes remained to be played. They stopped to feast, imbibe, and renew their energies. Knight Gregory was given a pep talk from his father and grandfather, they too being experienced Knights of the Green. Stewartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pep might have come from another source. At 12:30 p.m., the second and final round of The Match recommenced and played out as follows: Gregory, being given strokes on Holes 1 and 2, won both. Then he won Hole 3; the

Knights were now even. Stewart took Holes 4, they tied Hole 5 and then Stew won 6 and 7, thus back Up 3. They tied Hole 8 and then the sapling won 9 (still he was Down 2, as they say). Gregory, persevering, won 10, 11 then 12! How exciting: Up 1! On 13, Stewart gave Gregory a Stroke, but the young knight duck-hooked it left (a special golfe term as his ball flew into the pond where ducks are known to congregate). His heart sank along with his ball. Not without pluck, he tried valiantly to tie but failed. The Par 3 #14 was now straight stroke play (meaning Gregory would receive no further strokes). They tied 14; the game again Even. Stewartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play on 15 was a thing to behold: his errant drive went south onto the Fair Way of Hole #2! That warranted an almost blind shot, flying some tall pines to stick his 2nd shot onto the severely sloping green of Hole 15! Rolling his ball 12 feet or so into the Hole meant he Birdied the Hole (another special golfe term as one sings like a bird for having made one stroke less than par). Stewart was now Up 1. Hole 16 they tied. Hole 17 they tied again! What would Hole 18 (really Hole 36) hold for the knights? This hole is a challenge: two small hills to fly; deep, dark waters north and south of the Fair Way to avoid like the Plague; a reedy, greedy creek bordering the Fair Wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s north flank; tall trees and hillocks on the right; and a not-so-receptive sloping green. Plus it was near end of a long walk spoiled. In Golfeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Match Play, the Game of Groans, one must lose and one must win. Stalwart and steady, Stewart of Thompson took the last hole of the Match away from game and gutsy Gregory of Schaepper. Gadzooks! What an astounding round. As goode Knights are wont to do, they grinned broadly at each other, and shook hands as friends and respected opponents. Spectators can be sure these Knights of the Green will meet again. And â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Let the Match beginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will ring out oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;er the land as the Canadian flag flutters peacefully over Mountain Creek.

Madawaska Golf Academy a fun introduction to golf The Madawaska Golf Club put the fun in fundamentals for Ottawa Valley youth through their golf academy programs that ran all summer long at the club. Madawaska Golf Club Pro Daniel Guay took the lead on a program that focused on teaching boys and girls as young as 4-years-old the fundamentals of golf including motor skills, alignment, posture, grip, ball position, distance control, etiquette and much more. The lessons were held Saturday mornings in a workshop format throughout the summer. Workshops were divided by age from 4 to 7 and 8 to 12. Two separate sessions were held over the summer with the last one finishing in mid-August. “We spent six weeks learning the basics of the golf swing, rules and etiquette of golf. We played several holes every week with my assistance,” said

Guay. “The experience with the kids was rewarding for both myself and their involvement with the game. Golf is a great game for any age and skill of player. “The importance of teaching them young helps them want to continue to improve and learn more on and off the course. Golf is more than a game; it is time with the family, time learning patience and kindness to others.” Guay said the first-year program was a huge success as more than 25 kids participated in the workshops over the course of the summer. “We look forward to continuing focusing on Junior Golf programs and events in our future here at the Madawaska Golf Course and watching the kids love what we have loved here on JAKE DAVIES/SUBMITTED the course for the last 40 The Madawaska Golf Club Youth Academy members enjoy popsicles with program instructor Daniel Guay on the last day years,” he said. of the program.

Packers off to a promising start in CCHL2 hockey season John Carter

John.carter@metroland.com

The Arnprior Packers had mixed results in the first four games of their Central Canada Hockey League Tier II schedule, but there are some promising signs. The Packers split two games in the CCHL2 Opening Showcase, before winning their home opener 6-3 over Ottawa Canadians. In Richmond Sept. 11, Arnprior gave it a gallant try, but fell 7-4 to the defending Richardson Division champion Royals (formerly Stittsville), who are undefeated so far this season. The Packers were in both games they lost even though their opponents were two of the league’s top teams. The results put the Packers in fifth in the eight-team division with the 2-2 record. Arnprior opened the season with a 5-1 over Alexandria. Goals by Bailey

NEVIL HUNT/METROLAND

Arnprior’s Lucas Brown, in white, watches a puck fly past Alexandria Glens goalie Nicholas Rousseau on Sept. 2, during the CCHL2 Opening Showcase in Kanata. The Packers won the season opener 5-1 before dropping a 5-2 decision to Casselman on Labour Day. Hein and Tyler Ollson in the game’s first six minutes stake the Packers to an early lead and they never looked back. Adam Johnston, Jack Rouleau and Mathew Labrosse on the power play

scored the other Arnprior goals. Tom Meyerhans picked up the win in nets, stopping 18 Glens shots. The Packers wrapped up the two-game showcase, falling 5-2 to the defending

league champions Casselman Vikings. Brad Richardson gave Arnprior another early lead and Hein tied the game 2-2 early in the third, but the Vikings struck for three goals in just over two

minutes late in the game. Arnprior rebounded by doubling Ottawa Canadians at the Nick Smith Centre Sept. 9. After giving up a goal 33 seconds in, the Packers came roaring back with goals by Jacob Steege, Rouleau and Jonathan Ready before the period was out. Richardson made it 4-1 in the second and Labrosse added two third-period markers to snuff out any chance of a Canadians comeback. In Richmond, the Packers took a 3-1 first-period lead over the Royals on goals by Zack Elliott, Ollson and Richardson. However, Richmond dominated the second period with four straight goals, before Ollson pulled the Packers to within one with a penalty shot goal in the last minute. Richmond put the game away with the only two

third-period goals. The Royals outshot Arrnprior 48-29. Meyerhans has played all four games for the Packers with Arnprior’s Nick Quade as backp-up. Richardson leads the Packers offensively with three goals and three assists, which Gary Hicks has six assists. Arnprior was scheduled to play the Wolves in Renfrew Tuesday (after press deadline) and has two home games this weekend. The Clarence Beavers come to the Nick Smith Centre this Friday, Sept. 16 for an 8 p.m. games. The Athens Aeros, who are tied for the division lead with Perth and Richmond, provide the competition Sunday at 7 p.m. The Packers have traded two veterans from last year’s team to the Renfrew Timberwolves. Winger Dallas Farr and defenseman Riley Poirier went to the Wolves for a player development fee.

Support month, and Seniors at Home encourages you to get to know, donate, volunteer and raise your voice in support of the charity not-for-profit agency. Seniors at Home offers a wide variety of services that help people live independently in their own homes for as long as possible. The services include, Meals on Wheels, frozen meals, friendly visiting, grocery shopping, foot care, home help/home maintenance, transporta-

tion, telephone security, income tax program and information and referral. Seniors at Home also hosts social events including Dining with Friends, Friendship Days, the annual barbecue in the park, annual Seniors Christmas party, and Breakfast N’ Learn (an education program), as well as a variety of fundraising events to assist including yard sales and shredding. Individuals prefer to receive support in the comfort of their own homes and communities, not in hospitals and institutions. By meeting this need, ABMSH improves the quality of life of clients and their families – and it also create significant costsavings to Ontario’s health system, freeing up desperately needed funds and hospital beds. ABMSH is a crucial part of building the strong, sustainable health care system everyone will need in the

future. And it delivers these vital services with extremely limited budgets while depending on donations and dedicated volunteers. “We encourage all to take a few moments to learn about ABMSH and the basket of services we, as a community support services agency, provide year round,” says ABMSH executive director Dennis Harrington. “Our staff (11) and volunteers support a vast range of individuals in our communities – including some of our most vulnerable citizens. This month (October) is an excellent opportunity to give them a little extra support in return.” FAMILY TRADITION

ABMSH is planning for special events throughout October while looking to make it a ‘complete’ community effort. Letters were sent out to the business community requesting

its support with the possibility of offering fundraising or pointof-sale events in October with all in support of Community Support Services Month and ABMSH. To date the response has been very encouraging. As of press time the following local businesses that are set to help ABMSH celebrate October include the Knights Inn, Prior Tries, Gardiner’s Tree Removal, Mama Rosa Restaurant, Arnprior Quality Inn, Boyce Funeral Home, Arnprior Bowling Centre, Shoppers Drug Mart and Sandy’s Beauty Studio. Events planned to date (more to come) include a bowl-a-thon (Oct. 15), movie night and spaghetti dinner (details to come). Ongoing is the selling of ABMSH Mega 50/50 tickets with the minimum prize of $1,000, draw to take place Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 10:30 a.m. during the monthly Breakfast N’ Learn program at

Arnprior’s Bob Bickford debut novel sells out on first day Scott Campbell

scottcampbell@metroland.com

Out of stock. Sold out. Those are the kind of words that Arnprior author Bob Bickford probably didn’t expect to hear about his first novel released on Aug. 27. The book is titled Deadly Kiss and the paperback version on Amazon for both Canada and U.S. has sold out on that first day. “It’s a very hopeful start,” he said. “After all these months and years of work, it is really gratifying.” Bickford had been trying for years to be published and it wasn’t until last November when he received word that he had

found a publisher. It was still another nine-month wait before others could finally read the book in full. “For a local author to score a U.S. publishing deal is a nice kudo for Arnprior,” said Bickford. The only other place to buy the paperback is Barnes and Noble. There are still Amazon Kindle e-books to buy as well and versions also from Chapters/Indigo and Kobo. The inspiration behind Deadly Kiss is the chilling story of the abduction and killing of teenager Emmett Till. The events unfolded in Mississippi in 1955 and the path to Till’s death started when he whistled at a woman. Till is black and

Bob Bickford’s book The Deadly Kiss was released on Aug. 27 and sold out on Amazon in both the U.S. and Canada on the first day. the woman white. The classification for

the novel could be supernatural thriller, but Bickford likes the term of ghost story. The tagline on the cover is ‘The best love story is a ghost story.’ Bickford had developed a following through his Facebook page and had even posted excerpts from the book over time. “I could gauge interest [and responses] and make the story really reader-oriented,” he said. “I’ve been lucky.” Bickford has yet to hear anything from Arnprior about Deadly Kiss, but thanks to his Facebook following, he has received response from places like Arkansas and Georgia. Bickford is already looking ahead to his next

book, which was sold and signed within 48 hours. It’s called Caves in the Rain and he calls it a prequel to Deadly Kiss. Caves in the Rain features one of the characters from Deadly Kiss. Bickford said readers don’t necessarily have to read both books to understand what is going on. The novel is being fast tracked for a release around Christmas time and is being published by Champagne Book Group near Calgary. Bickford has in the works two more potential novels, which are teased on his website, called A Song for Chloe and Girls in Pink. For more, check out bobbickfordauthor.com.

The purr-fect pet is an intelligent, independent cat As heads of their households, cats want things their way. That may mean drinking from the faucet or walking across the kitchen table. Cats like to be the centre of attention and they always detect where your attention is centred, whether that be the open pages of the book you are reading or on the keyboard of your computer. Cats - one moment they are cuddling up looking for love and the next they are up and away, tail and nose in air leaving you thinking, ‘Do they really love me?’ However, cat-lovers swear by the ease and independence of caring for pets of the feline persuasion. Cat-lovers don’t pussyfoot around they know the little purr balls are the cat’s meow. Cats come in many sizes and colors, not to mention a myriad of purrsonalities. Unlike dogs, cats are far more independent

and far more intelligent. Cats, unlike dogs, do not require kitten obedience classes. They are affectionate when they want to be and can be extremely playful. For someone looking for an independent pet that requires very little maintenance, for someone living in an apartment or for someone that finds it hard to get around, a cat could be a great companion. Other than a litter box, food and water, a cat requires nothing more than a place to sit in the sun and let life slowly go by. Cats just like dogs should be spayed and neutered as this will keep your pet from wandering at night and from contributing to an overpopulation of fury felines. Yearly visits to the veterinarian will guarantee that your feline friend is healthy and up-to-date on its shots. Although I do not believe in letting my pets out alone unsu-

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP

pervised, if you choose to let them roam, then speak to your veterinarian about flea and tick prevention. A break-away collar will prevent your cat from hanging themselves should they get caught on something. For that same reason, I do not recommend a flea collar. Speak to your veterinarian about administering flea drops instead. Keep your feline indoors in the dead of winter and in the heat of the summer. Diet is very important to your cat. Not only

is being overweight unhealthy for your cat, being overweight can also make it difficult to groom oneself. Usually you will find the back end of an overweight cat to be matted, cover in feces and smelling from dried urine. Declawing, or mutilation as I call it, is in my opinion unnecessary. Cats can be trained to be hospitable and with patience can be trained to redirect their feline temptation to destroy your home and instead enjoy a scratch post. Over the years I have owned a cat or two and never have I considered getting their claws ripped out. I never lost a couch, carpets or drapes to a cat. Don’t get me wrong I have had the odd scratch here and rip there but nothing that had to be replaced. A water bottle set on spray works like magic at training even the most stubborn feline. Cats can get along with

There’s a better way to build wealth

other pets including birds and can be trained to be sociable around children. You can even fit them with a cat harness and take them out for walks. Cat nip, or as I call it legalized marijuana for cats, can work wonders at keeping them occupied. It’s amazing to think that something as simple as a piece of string tied to a door knob can provide hours of playtime for your cat. There is nothing like watching a cat play for hours with a tiny piece of paper oblivious to all that is going on in the world. Perhaps we should learn from our feline friends and find time to stop and play with a piece of string attached to a door knob!
