Two men were arrested Wednesday when a large contingent of police descended on three area homes. The neighbours were abuzz in the Sandy Hook area of McNab-Braeside and in two neighbourhoods in Arnprior as police searched three homes during the morning raids. At least six police cars were seen outside a Sandy Hook home in the Neilson Street area just off Usborne. The Arnprior OPP and the Ottawa Police Service Gangs and Guns Unit were among those conducting the raids. Later in the day, the OPP issued a news release in which it reported that officers had arrested and charged two men, a 44-year-old from Ottawa and a 31-year-old from McNab-Braeside. No names were released. See MEN ARRESTED, Page 4

Schooled in sports spirit Spirit day at St. Joseph’s Catholic school Wednesday had a sports theme, which for many boys can only mean one thing: wearing a favourite hockey sweater to school. Jacob Thibault, left, Kole Lewis, Braeden Graham, and Tristan Ready are set to take on the day showing their true colours. When asked, none were too concerned over the National Hockey League lockout, and the likelihood that the pros won’t be playing until 2013. They’re big on minor hockey at the Nick Smith Centre, the Junior B Packers (for an update, see Page 24), and maybe even catching major junior games at Scotiabank Place. The Ottawa 67’s are calling it home this year.

Footloose moose visits Teachers split on extra-curriculars John Carter

EMC news – An unexpected visitor is causing quite the sensation in McNab-Braeside this week. A young adult bull moose has been hanging out in the Campbell Drive area. But the male with a beard and small rack of antlers has also been seen along the Madawaska River in the Mill Ridge Donna Symington’s moose. Estates area; that is unless there are two of them in the area. As is her normal routine, Donna Symington stepped outside her home at 1077 Campbell Dr. early Monday morning with her coffee. She enjoys watching the various bird and animal wildlife who grace her back yard, adjacent pasture and nearby gully with their presence. However, Monday was far from routine, because a bull moose, the size of an adult horse, came up from the gully and sauntered alongside the house.

EMC news - The providing of extra-curricular activities by teachers is a hit-and-miss affair in Renfrew County. While some elementary school students are missing out on some of their extra-curriculars, such as cross-country running, in other schools, including most area high schools, it’s business as usual. To show anger at having teachers’ collective bargaining rights taken away by the provincial government, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has asked its members to consider taking a “pause” from voluntary duties such as coaching and supervising clubs. However, it’s leaving the final decision up to individual teachers, meaning some schools are offering extra-curriculars and some aren’t. For example, parents say all the usual extracurriculars are being offered at McNab Public School, but most aren’t at Walter Zadow in Arnprior. Some long-standing extra-curricular programs are still being offered, but it’s not likely any new ones will be forthcoming

See MOOSE, Page 6

this semester. The sports teams at Arnprior District, RCI and St. Joseph’s high schools have not been affected, with the football season beginning Tuesday - ADHS thumped RCI 41-21 in senior play (see Page 27) - and volleyball, basketball, rugby and cross-country running soon to follow suit. “The staff have been quite busy (preparing for the sports seasons),” said ADHS principal Neil Farmer. He noted the music program is also up and running as usual and drama students will be performing a musical in November. “Staff have been very helpful.” In Ottawa, many high schools are still fielding sports teams, but 11, including West Carleton Senior Secondary, aren’t, leading to student protests and petitions. As members of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association have agreed to a new deal offered by the province (although the local board hasn’t finalized the local agreement yet), Renfrew county’s Catholic schools are not affected by teacher withdrawal from extra-curriculars.

Teachers hold anti-Bill 115 rally at MPP’s riding office Continued from front

St. Joseph’s Catholic School principal MaryLise Rowat said it’s status quo regarding the extra-curricular activities at her school. The school is preparing to host the Arnprior Optimist cross-country run Oct. 3, she noted. If schools who normally attend such as Walter Zadow and A.J. Charbonneau don’t, then St. Joseph’s may invite Renfrew students from St. Thomas the Apostle and Our Lady of Fatima, she said. Everything’s going “straight ahead” as usual when it comes to extra-curriculars at John XXIII, reported principal Heidi Fraser. She said students are practicing for the cross-county run and the school has held an open house, as usual early in the year, for parents to meet teachers. At A.J. Charbonneau, principal Angie McGrath said most of the extra-curricular activities at the school are going ahead except for cross-country. “It’s pretty much the status quo,” she said, noting the decision whether to participate in extra-curricular activities is being left up to individual teachers. Walter Zadow principal Kim Shoveller agreed that the decision is each teacher’s to make. While most extra-curriculars, including cross-country, are not being offered at the school this session, there is a new after-school robotics club being formed to work with robotics club members at Arnprior District High School, she noted. “We feel it is an exciting development,” she said, noting student interest was high in the club. McNab principal Bronwyn Scott declined to comment on the extra-curricular activities issue, but some parents with students at the school have indicated the staff there has decided to continue to be involved in extra-curriculars. DRESSED IN BLACK

That doesn’t mean the teachers, even those continuing to help with extra-curriculars, are happy with the Putting Students First legislation passed by the provincial government last week, imposing settlements on them. Many of the teachers wore black to school on Wednesday, Sept. 12, a day after the legislation passed. Close to 100 teachers, support staff and family members held a ‘Rally for Rights’ in the rain last Friday at Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski’s constituency office to protest Bill 115 and their Progressive Conservative MPP’s vote for it. Yakabuski was away from the office, but has received several letters and emails from teachers on the issue. “The bill represents an attack on all workers’ rights,” said Allison Ryan, president of the Renfrew County local of the EFTO. A letter to Yakabuski from local Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation (OSSTF) president Jeffrey Barber of AdmastonBromley said he viewed Yakabuski’s vote with “profound sadness and confusion.” He noted the MPP had criticized Bill 115 as “a political manoeuvre by the Liberals to create a crisis and win some by-elections,” but yet supported their bill, he wrote. “How can the Conservative party support a Liberal agenda?

“If all the Conservatives wanted was a wage freeze, why did you not let OSSTF negotiate a contract when OSSTF had already agreed to a wage freeze? “You want to save the Ontario taxpayers money, but this legislation will cost them millions as it is dragged through the courts and found to be unconstitutional.” Barber echoed Ryan’s comments in calling the legislation a fundamental attack on workers’ rights. “Neither the Conservatives nor the Liberals campaigned in the last election to remove Canadian Charter rights from the citizens of Ontario,” he wrote. “Where did the Liberal-Conservative alliance get the mandate to remove worker rights? “We will not forget how you (Yakabuski) stood to support the Liberals and this unnecessary and illegal legislation.”

Popular school secretary mourned

Clare Hamilton

EMC news - The tightly-knit A.J. Charbonneau school community was stunned last Thursday when the school’s main secretary, Clare Hamilton, suddenly died. Hamilton was preparing for another day of school in the morning before classes when she became ill. The 65-year-old was taken to hospital, but passed away shortly after News of her death brought an outpouring of praise for her work at the school from teachers, parents, fellow support staff and principal Angie McGrath. McGrath said the school has been hit hard by the loss of Hamilton, who had worked at A.J. Charbonneau since it opened. She is survived by her husband and three children. For more, see the obituary in the classified section.

MCGUINTY MONDAYS

Ryan said elementary teachers are limiting their volunteer activities and introducing McGuinty Mondays in response to the “extraordinary and unwarranted” bill passed last wee and the “unprecedented attack of collective bargaining,” On each Monday, teachers are coming to school half an hour before the first class and leaving half an hour after the last one, she explained. As a result, they are not participating in before- or after-school meetings of any kind, as well as other special sessions that day. However, the moves are “absolutely not” affecting school yard and bus supervision, she stressed. “We’re still doing everything needed to ensure the safety of our students.” Ryan said that with the taking away of their sick days by the province, teachers need to do more to ensure they look after themselves, so they don’t get sick. As a result, they shouldn’t overextend themselves by taking on extra duties, especially on high stress days and when contagious diseases are being spread at school, she added. “They have to focus on their own health too.” She suggested the government “created a crisis” in a desperate bid to try to win back a majority through the two by-elections. The premier insisted the Legislature reconvene to pass the legislation prior to Sept. 1, yet it wasn’t approved until Sept. 10, she noted. “And in the meantime, all the teachers returned to class Sept. 4, just like they had always planned … there was never any talk of a walkout.” As well as banning lawful collective bargaining activities in the education sector for two or three years, Bill 115 seeks to put the actions of the provincial government beyond the review of the Ontario Labour Relations Board, outside the reach of the Ontario Human Rights Commission and even above the courts, says the EFTO. It was imposed before education unions had the opportunity to bargain in a meaningful way with local school boards, so the teachers will challenge the constitutionality of the law all the way to the Supreme Court, Ryan said. She also noted teachers will be taking the strike vote postponed in late August as another way of expressing their anger at the legislation. R0011622788

“He didn’t appear to be in any distress, and actually let me get close enough (me on the opposite side of the fence, of course) to take a few pictures,” she said. Three curious Charolais calves also noticed the moose and come over to meet their visitor, who decided retreat was his best option, although he didn’t leave the property. Symington managed to get the humourous interchange on video and now it is being watched by thousands on YouTube. When she returned from work in Renfrew, the bull moose was still ambling about the property, which is on the north side of Highway 17. But it is possible he was on the move throughout the day. While Symington’s husband said he was in the area most of Monday afternoon, the moose, or his twin, was spotted and photographed along the Madawaska River that afternoon in the Flat Rapids-Mill Ridge Road area, several kilometers south of the highway. “It’s amazing that he would stroll to the Madawaska in the afternoon and return to the pasture for sunrise the following day rather than just ‘moosying’ on from there,” she said. “Of course, all bull moose of that age would have similarly developed body/antlers, etc. - but the alternative of the coincidence of there being two in a neighbourhood that

doesn’t see many, if any, moose would be just as amazing.” It turns out the moose was also seen Saturday evening in the Russett Drive area. Symington said she’s seen plenty of wildlife in her area, from wild turkeys and coyotes to pheasants and wolves, but never a moose before. But she remembers when one swam across the Ottawa River in the 1970s and caused a ruckus on the outskirts of Arnprior. It’s possible this moose could also have come from the Quebec side, she said. She reported the moose was still on her property Tuesday morning, pacing along the fence line toward the road, but each time a vehicle drove past he would retreat quickly further into the pasture. And he was still on her property Tuesday night. So far he hasn’t feasted on her garden, she noted. “I was worried about my cucumbers.” Symington said the moose is becoming a major attraction, as a large number of people have been driving by to take a look. At one point he was on Campbell Drive, forcing a passing car to come to a screeching halt. That caused him to return back to the haven of the gully and pasture. “Perhaps at some point today the road will be quiet enough for him to get where he wants … (where) is supposed to be – safely,” she surmised.

Marina a future possibility for Red Pine Bay EMC news - Once all the improvements are in place at Red Pine Bay, the facility could become the site of a marina. Council was told Tuesday that it is expected more people will be drawn down to the area once its developed more. The suggestion that it could develop into a commercial marina down the road is not being dismissed. “It is a first step, getting a cement structure,” recreation director Geoff Patterson pointed out. Once finances are in order, the improvement project is expected take between 10 and 14 days, depending on weather conditions. Asked if proposed budget cuts to recreation projects already slated for work was a concern, Patterson said he isn’t worried. “We

McNab-Braeside Council was told last fall a new boat launch on the Madawaska would cost $75,000. It found the money, in large part thanks to a provincial grant. But now they’ve learned the actual cost is more likely to be close to $100,000.

mark against us for any future funding,” she explained. Patterson suggested increases may be due in part to costs of transportation and materials such as steel. He also indicated that the unique project requires specialized equipment that may need to be rented. Coun. Aldene Styles’ suggestion to look in the recreation budget for the extra money sparked discussion around projects not yet executed.

LOOKING FOR MONEY

Quick math calculated that work planned for the CN Trail, Glasgow Downs and Clay Bank projects did not total enough to cover the shortfall. Styles inquired about the recreation reserve money and was reminded some had already been spent as a result of the service negotiations with Arnprior. Campbell raised the possibility of using funds gained from McNab Days, but the exact amount available is unclear. Council gave staff direction to find the money so the project could go ahead. The new launch will eliminate challenges boaters experience with the present facility. “In the past, prevailing winds have pushed boats being launched, back onto their trailers,” explained Patterson. “With the breakwater, launching boats will become very easy for people.”

EMC news – McNab-Braeside council will have to find an additional $21,000 if it is to go ahead with the Red Pine Bay project. Council was told at its meeting Tuesday that tenders received for the proposed work came in higher than expected. Estimates received last fall indicated costs to construct a new boat launch at Red Pine Bay would be $75,000. The municipality’s successful bid for a $50,000 small business development grant from the County of Renfrew’s Futures Program along with $25,000 from the municipality were expected to cover the costs of the project. Township recreation director Geoff Patterson informed council that four tenders received last week ranged in price from $96,000 to $212,000. Asked by Mayor Mary Campbell why the tenders went out so late in the season, Patterson admitted his lack of technical knowledge, in particular load capacity of docks and slopes, slowed things down. “What? You aren’t an engineer,” Campbell quipped before taking the opportunity to point out that a public works officer on staff would have eliminated the issue. Coun. Brad McIIquham asked if the project could be put on hold but was told by Campbell that it was not advisable. “The project is time-sensitive and the work permit ends Feb. 28. If we don’t go ahead now, we would lose funding and it would be a black

It will be a first-class launch facility.” Meanwhile, the public is invited to Red Pine Bay this Friday, Sept. 21 at 3 p.m. to take part in a celebration of the improvements that have already been completed there.

We must keep Terry Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream alive

I

f you look up the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;hopeâ&#x20AC;? in the dictionary, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably find a photograph of Terry Fox. Or at least you should. Terry Fox was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed with bone cancer and had his leg amputated above the knee â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an age when most of us are starting our lives: going to university, beginning a career, falling in love for the first time. He died at the age of 22. In those four short years,

Fox managed to inspire generations of his countrymen. He made us learn to hope in the face of an awful disease that has touched all our lives. He taught us to fight back no matter what the odds. When Fox learned he had cancer he decided to run a Marathon of Hope across Canada. His goal was to raise enough money to discover a cure for cancer. Starting in April 1980, Fox started his run by dipping his artificial leg in the Atlantic

Ocean in St Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, NL. He ran 42 kilometres a day, the equivalent of a full marathon. On Sept. 1, 1980, after running for 143 days and 5, 373 kilometres, Terry was forced to stop his Marathon of Hope outside of Thunder Bay. The cancer had spread to his lungs. On June 28, 1981, Fox died. But his memory lives on in the hearts and minds of generations of Canadians, who continue his battle every year

by holding Terry Fox Runs across the country. The runs have raised hundreds of millions of dollars and funded numerous advancements in cancer research, saving countless lives. But a cure is yet to be found. This year, Foxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Fred Fox, visited the campus of Carleton of University, urging the students to keep Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream alive. Carleton is one of eight Canadian universities who

have joined Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College and University Student Engagement (CAUSE). The colleges and universities have committed to holding a major campus event that includes runs and other fundraisers with all proceeds going to the Terry Fox Foundation. Most communities across Canada held their annual runs on Sunday, including a run at the Arnprior Fairgrounds. Many school runs are planned for Sept. 27 or 28. For a time it appeared the

Arnprior run would end its streak of being held every year since the initial event 32 years ago. But fortunately Stephen Dodd took over when Rita Cloutier took a well-deserved retirement from organizing the event. He and those who supported his efforts deserve a enthusiastic high five from the community for keeping the Arnprior Terry Fox run alive Ottawa Hospital Research Instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Bell said that while great strides have been made in cancer research over the past 30 years, there is still much to be done. We must continue to keep Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream alive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one step at a time.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Partnerships made festival successful To the editor: Something unique just happened in Calabogie. The second annual Calabogie Blues & Ribfest burst onto the scene as a leading Ontario festival. Over 14,000 visitors enjoyed three days of outstanding blues music and award-winning rib fest fare. The excitement for the event was heightened with spectacular fireworks on Saturday evening and a vendors village filled with lots of local artisans and businesses. The large attendance and the crowdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enthusiasm point towards this festival as a new signature event for Calabogie and the surrounding area. The success of the festival is the result of a unique public â&#x20AC;&#x201C; private partnership between the Province of Ontario, the Township of Greater Madawaska and community sponsors who un-

derstood the opportunity, embraced it with us and came together for the combined benefit of the community. By working together to create a world-class Blues & Ribfest, the partnership has raised Calabogieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prominence and popularity more than was ever imagined. Our challenge now is to prepare appropriately for the influx of next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guests, creating a welcoming environment that will showcase the township and its businesses as a place to visit, stay and invest. We thank Celebrate Ontario, the Township of Greater Madawaska and our community sponsors for getting behind the festival and creating new tourism opportunities in our area.

Come celebrate Day of Peace this week To the editor Sept. 21 is the International Day of Peace. On this day, communities and institutions around the world will celebrate acts of peace and combat zones will participate in a ceasefire. Locally, Arnprior is hosting events to share in the global prayer and plan of action for peace. On Sept. 20 at 7 p.m., Island View Estates will host a movie night on peace in action. On Sept. 21 at the Galilee Centre, there will be a meditation for peace at noon joining in a global BePeace action followed at 1 p.m. with prayers and reflections at the Peace Pole with refreshments to follow. The International Day of Peace was first celebrated in 1982. It was established by the United Nations to counter the constant attention to acts of violence and to recall the more prevalent acts of peace. It is now a global event with a wide variety of activities occurring within municipalities, such as the declaration of the Mayors for Peace. Last year, there were many varied events held all around the world. In Canada, the Canadian Peace Initiative has been integral in bringing attention to the con-

cept and practices of peaceful means, believing if violence perpetuates violence then peace will bring about peace. The Initiative has worked to get support for UNESCOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2000 Manifesto, which describes the principles of a culture of peace and has advocated for the integration and administration of these principles through the formation of a Canadian Department of Peace. In 2011, an Act to Establish a Department of Peace was submitted in parliament and endorsed by 14 MPs. The Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Peace Initiative is holding its sixth annual peace festival that runs from Sept. 21 to Oct. 2.

An encounter with a cross fox EMC lifestyle – Now, before you start thinking that this column is about an angry fox, be assured it is not. The only species of fox in our area is the Red Fox and although on rare occasions rabies renders an individual unusually tame and even aggressive (years ago I met one such animal near Carleton Place), they are usually shy and elusive animals. And they certainly are not cross. The Red Fox is named after the colour of its fur. Its coat, at its most luxurious and beautiful in winter, is typically a rich orange-red, and its legs and ears are black. The bushy tail bears a white tip, a feature shared with no other Ontario fox (two other species, Arctic and Gray, occur in Ontario, in the province’s most northern and southern regions respectively, and they lack this feature). However, Red Foxes are

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way not always red. In the northern part of the species’ range, which fortunately includes our area, the occasional individual is mostly black with silver tips to the hairs. This “Silver Fox” colour morph is due to an excessive amount of melanin pigmentation in the hair. Melanism, which is at the opposite end of the genetic scale from albi-

nism (a total lack of pigmentation), is generally found in animals owning large populations. Recently a reader reported a black Groundhog in Ottawa, and one winter long ago I saw a melanistic Snowshoe Hare near Mt. St. Patrick; the pure black hare was understandably excessively nervous! While the silver morph of the Red Fox is extremely rare – I have only seen one such individual and that was 40 years ago near Carp – the Cross Fox morph is somewhat more common. Partial melanism results in some of the orange-red hair replaced by black. The variation’s name comes from a characteristic cross that is formed by a black horizontal band across the shoulders intersecting a black band running down the back. Last weekend I was birding at the tip of Presqu’ile Provin-

cial Park shortly after dawn. A fox appeared out of nowhere and walked out onto the pebble beach. Immediately I realized it was a Cross Fox morph for it showed more black than red. It seemed to not mind my presence for it plopped down on the stony beach and started to groom. It obviously had ectoparasites, likely fleas, for it repeatedly scratched its neck and upper body with the claws of its hind foot. It also nibbled its skin, another sign that unwanted passengers were present. At one point the fox scratched its neck so aggressively that it lost its balance and fell over! It appeared unperturbed, for it casually stretched out over the limestone pebbles to bask in the sun’s warming rays. After a minute or so, it jumped up and trotted into the

The bear that ate me (almost) and other tales from the wild A gala evening with Michael Runtz to raise funds for nature reserve EMC events - For an evening that will leave you smiling, the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC) invites the public to a fundraising gala dinner Sept. 28 featuring columnist Michael Runtz as guest speaker. Runtz is one of Canada’s most highly respected naturalists and nature photographers. Proceeds from the evening at the Almonte Civitan Club will be used for the care of the High Lonesome Nature Reserve in the Pakenham Hills. Runtz, a birdwatcher since the age of five, has lived, breathed and worked with

nature all his life. Professionally, he has worked as a naturalist in Canada’s national and provincial parks and is currently on the faculty of Carleton University teaching natural history and ornithology. His infectious and enthusiastic teaching style attracts thousands of students annually and for which he has received awards for excellence in teaching from students and peers alike. Seven best-sellers all bear the stamp of author Runtz’s passion, knowledge and stunning photography of wild animals and plants that are found in eastern Ontario.

His just-released eighth book Natural History will be available for sale at the dinner. His talk The Bear that Ate Me (Almost) and other Tales from the Wild will be as informative as it will be entertaining, promise organizers. In May, the family of the late Barry Spicer donated 200 acres of wilderness in the Pakenham Hills to the MMLTC. Thanks to the energetic efforts of Ken Spicer, High Lonesome Nature Reserve has a network of trails that wander up, down and through the forests, by beaver ponds, creeks and wetlands, trails that

Eel project focuses on Ottawa River EMC news - The second year of a two-year American Eel monitoring project is focusing on the Ottawa River. The objective of the project is to determine presence, abundance and timing of the migration of American Eel and will also provide data on Lake Sturgeon. The project by the Community Stewardship Council of Lanark County began in 2011 on the Mississippi River. The American Eel is an important ecosystem component where it inhabits Ontario’s freshwaters. American Eel species mature in freshwater then return to an oceanic environment to spawn. It has a unique and complicated life history. All freshwater occurring American Eel populations are part of a single breeding population that only reproduces

in the Sargasso Sea in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. In response to a steep population decline, the Ontario government cancelled all commercial and recreational fishing of the American Eel in 2004 and the eel is now considered endangered under Ontario’s Species at Risk list. Their complex life history makes them susceptible to a number of factors including climate change, pollution, habitat loss and manmade physical barriers such as dams. The information gathered in the project will help industry and government agencies to work collaboratively to find solutions to safe eel passage. Project organizers are looking for assistance from local boaters, fishermen and residents who may have information regarding sight-

The Lanark Community Stewardship Council is composed of volunteers who are both prominent and active in the community and represent the diverse groups of landowners and activities carried out in it. The Council promotes stewardship and sustainability and has supported about 400 projects since its inception in 1995, most related to broad social and environmental goals.

To take full advantage reserve’s rich biodiversity, the trails will form the foundation for outdoor education, nature interpretation and recreation. MMLTC needs significant funds to care for this property and the proceeds of this fundraiser will be dedicated to that purpose. Furthermore, through an agreement with the Community Foundation of Ottawa and the Ontario Land Trust Alliance, the funds raised at the

gala for stewardship of High Lonesome will be matched. The event will also feature a silent auction offering a wide range of useful and interesting items, with an emphasis on services, ranging from weekends in the woods to dinners to guided walks. The gala begins at 6 p.m. with dinner served at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $30 and are available at the Arnprior Book Shop and Pakenham General Store or by calling 613-2782939. Deadline for ticket purchase is this Friday, Sept. 21.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

An attack on Canadian hunting To the Editor: Safari Club International – Canada (SCI-Canada) is incredulous to learn that the Canadian network Global Television, a division of Shaw Media, has decided to stop airing all hunting shows. This sudden decision ended popular programs such as ‘Canada in the Rough’, ‘Hunt TV’, and ‘Canadian Tradition’. SCI-Canada urges Global Television/ Shaw Media to reconsider this ill-conceived decision, and return all hunting programs to their rightful place on national television. Global Television has conceded that over a million viewers tune in to the Canadian block of outdoor shows, making its decision even more blatantly antihunting. The move by Global Television is not a sound business decision because Canada’s two million hunters can easily be reached by advertisers through these programs.

‘Canada in the Rough’, ‘Canadian Tradition’, as well as other similar programs, promote the safe and ethical pursuit of our heritage sport. Global Television’s decision takes no account of the very important contribution made by Canada’s hunting/conservation community to the Canadian economy. It takes no account of the extremely important contribution made to conservation and outdoor education by these programs and by our community. In fact, this action is a serious attack not only on the Canadian hunting and conservation community, but on our freedoms of speech and of expression. Again, SCI-Canada urges Global Television/Shaw Media to reconsider this ill-conceived decision, and requests that all hunting programs be returned to their regularly scheduled production.

Coalition calls for closure of new trades college Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – Jon Lajoie is a general contractor from Carp. He’s been one for a number of years now. He’s hired a lot of tradesworkers: electricians, plumbers, whoever has a special skill he needs to complete the job. Suffice to say Lajoie knows a lot of people in the trades. And yet he’s never heard of the Ontario College of Trades. Or of the fees it will soon re-

quest or impose on workers in 157 trades in the province, everyone from electricians and plumbers to hairdressers and more. It could mean between $50 and $200 a year in most cases. Not a lot, according to Lajoie, but considering he can’t figure out what need the college fills and didn’t even know it came into being recently, he suspects the worst. “Sounds like more like a money grab,” Lajoie said. “Tradespeople already do five years of

schooling; they’re part of a (quasi) union already.” Yet the College of Trades, much like the Ontario College of Physicians and numerous other industry-sponsored organizations, insists the membership fees will be voluntary for the vast majority. It intends to convince tradespeople that belonging to the college will bring legitimacy and greater appeal. However, convincing lone general contractors and others that membership fees will be put to good use is the least of the fledging college’s concerns at the moment. The Ottawa Construction Association (OCA) has issued a news release urging the Liberal government to shut down the college, due to open in January, for fear it will mirror Quebec’s construction industry. ‘DEEPLY CONCERNED’

R0011624466_0920 R0011605337

“We look at Quebec’s 100 per cent regulated construction market and we’re deeply concerned about the impacts of increased trade worker and industry regulation,” said Dean Drevniok, OCA chair. “This is going to cause a significant regulatory burden, decreased productivity due to strict scope of work definitions, the increased cost of construction and the increased incentive for work to be performed in the underground economy.” OCA and 17 other organizations across Ontario have united against the college, forming a campaign that includes the website stopthetradestax.ca. OCA president and general manager John DeVries has no qualms calling the fee a tax, and fully expects added regulations and administration costs associated with running the college will drive up costs for construction industry costumers. “Over regulation drives up cost, there’s no way around it,” DeVries said. “It also drives the work underground.” He added that compulsory certification of painting and drywalling will mean that companies who have been in business for years will be forced to shut down, forcing valuable people out of skilled trades. The chairman of the board of directors at the college, Ron Johnson, dismisses most of the concerns as “absurd.” He said the OCA’s claim of “an $84 million tax grab” is incorrect; the college will take in between $17 and $20 million the first year, and $30 million when fully up and running. Of the 157 trades, he added, just 22 will be compulsory. Johnson said it will be trades people, not government, who will establish training and certification when the college is in operation. “I’m a little surprised to hear the Ottawa Construction Association has more faith in government than their own industry,” Johnson said. He dismissed concerns over a lack of transparency regarding the college’s spending, saying a large portion will go to promoting the

trades as a lucrative and fulfilling career; better for some than spending on a university degree that often leads to joblessness. Johnson hopes the college will help restore integrity to the industry; scam-busters such as Mike Holmes seems to find con artists with ease. “There will be less for customers to complain about, with any luck,” he said. He’s not making any promises when it comes to the long-standing beef Ontario workers have with Quebec tradespeople. The latter’s highly regulated industry all but block Ontarians from working on the Gatineau side of the river. Yet Quebecers regularly score contracts on the Ottawa side. “There’s not much we can do about interprovincial issues,” he said. “We’re certainly not going to follow the Quebec model. The Quebec model is flawed.” He laughs at the notion of tradespeople passing along a $100 annual fee to customers. “It’s an absurd argument,” Johnson said. He added that greater oversight and regulation will reduce work going underground, not increase it. And it will protect consumers, not burden them. As for Lajoie? He’s waiting to see how it all shakes out before he starts to worry of the effects on him. But he remains convinced that when a business person is saddled with extra costs, those costs have to paid by someone. “It always boils down in the end to the user’s going to pay.” ARNPRIOR CONCERNS

Eric Glahs, past chairman of the Ontario Electrical League and owner of Lorne’s Electric in Arnprior, has been sounding the alarm about Ontario College of Trades. He has spoken out against the fees as early as last spring in letters to the editor and to politicians and urged others in the business to speak up. “Another fee being added, in my opinion, is another money grab,” he wrote in one letter. Glahs will be taking part in a ‘Helping Ontarians Enter Skilled Trades’ tour stop in Renfrew County Friday, Sept. 28. The 1 p.m. session at the Renfrew Legion is.being hosted by Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski. Yakabuski will be joined by MPP Garfield Dunlop, the Progressive Conservative party critic for Skilled Trades and Apprenticeship Reform. Dunlop has been touring the province meeting directly with skilled trades employers and employees. Among the issues to be discussed are the apprenticeship system, compulsory certification, proposed membership fees for tradespeople and employers, and the College of Trades. “It is important that local tradespeople are kept informed of how these changes will affect them. This meeting will be a big help in that regard,” Yakabuski said. All skilled tradespeople and those affected by the recent and upcoming changes are welcome to attend.

Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, September 20, 2012 13


Changing the way you think about storage... YOU’VE PROBABLY SEEN THE NEW MEGA DYMON SELF STORAGE AT KANATA CENTRUM – IT’S JUST THE LATEST IN A STRING OF FACILITIES THAT ARE POPPING UP ALL OVER TOWN. LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED DYMON NOW HAS SIX INDUSTRY LEADING FACILITIES THROUGHOUT THE CITY.

Stepping inside a Dymon facility, you will quickly realize that Dymon Self Storage is not your traditional type of storage business. “Before the arrival of Dymon, self storage in Ottawa was really nothing more than single storey buildings with garage doors. These facilities were typically located in industrial parks or rural locations, that offered minimal security, no climate or humidity controls, and there was very little focus on customer service,” explains Steve Creighton. “We recognized there was a demand for quality storage in Ottawa, but there was virtually nothing available”. Dymon quickly recognized a business opportunity, but wanted to create a unique “made in Ottawa” solution. Before getting started back in 2006, Dymon did extensive research across the U.S. and Canada by visiting dozens of facilities, and quickly determined the attributes of the best performing facilities across North America. Taking these ideas and introducing a few unique offerings of its own, Dymon put together a “best of breed” business model. Arguably, right here in Ottawa Dymon has built the very best that self storage has to offer anywhere in the world. 14 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, September 20, 2012

“At the end of the day, your stuff is likely better off stored with Dymon than at your home or business” adds Creighton. From the outside, Dymon’s facilities are architecturally attractive and don’t look anything like storage buildings. “We have moved self storage into the mainstream by locating our facilities in easy to access, highly visible sites, usually adjacent to big box retail” says Creighton, “and with our attractive exterior look we wanted the marketplace to understand that we represented a new and totally different storage solution”.

WHAT DOES “BEST OF BREED” MEAN? Dymon’s facilities have many distinctive features that differentiate them from anything else in the Ottawa marketplace. By integrating leading technologies, Dymon has created the safest and most convenient way to store your excess stuff. Starting with its complete and total humidity and climate controlled environment, Dymon’s facilities ensure no mould, mildew or bugs. Its advanced security features ensure your possessions are safe – besides having extended retail hours, Dymon also has a 24/7 Customer Service Command Center which monitors all of its facilities with personnel who can respond to customer issues at anytime, day or night. Dymon’s unique drive through bays (which are like airport hangars) provide complete protection from the weather and allow you to load and unload your stuff in comfort. Dymon even offers a free truck and driver at the time of move-in for your added convenience, taking the hassle away of renting and driving a large truck. Dymon’s facilities have

luxury boardrooms, mini-offices, as well as a vault and mailbox service. And in a short period of time, Dymon has become a leading retailer of boxes and moving supplies – you should drop by the facilities just to see their unique box displays! And the list goes on and on. But perhaps Dymon’s biggest asset is its relentless focus on delivering an exceptional customer experience. “Our highly trained staff regularly go above and beyond to help our customers deal with the stress of moving and storage,” says Creighton. “And time and time again we receive compliments on how helpful and professional our staff are.” With everything that Dymon has to offer, is it any wonder that Dymon Self Storage has taken the Ottawa market by storm? Dymon’s first facility on Coventry Road opened in 2006 and filled in

R0011624282-0920

M

any people are also taking notice of Dymon’s latest facility under construction on Carling at the Queensway. “We are really excited about our Carling site,” offers Steve Creighton, Senior Vice President with Dymon, “it is going to be our flagship facility with our head office located on the top floor. We have some new outstanding features that are going to make this our best facility yet.” Dymon’s next facility will be on Greenbank at Hunt Club, and then another six facilities planned for Ottawa.


Creighton “and we continue to listen to our customers for new ideas on what they want to see from us”. DymonBox.com is its latest environmentally focused business that offers customers the opportunity to rent or buy eco-friendly storage bins ideally suited for moving and storage. “This is an incredibly convenient service for our customers,” says Jonathon Dicker, Regional Manager at Dymon, “renting the eco-friendly storage bins is cheaper than buying traditional cardboard boxes and includes free delivery and pick-up.”

just 5 months, and has remained full ever since. And Dymon’s Coventry facility was no flash-inthe-pan – Dymon’s second location at Prince of Wales and Hunt Club was filled in only 6 months. Each subsequent facility has also experienced a rapid fill. Dymon’s Kanata Centrum facility, adjacent to Canadian Tire, is the largest self storage facility in Canada, and is already half full after having just opened at the end of 2011. Pretty impressive stuff when you realize the Kanata facility is twice as large as their Coventry facility! To put this all in perspective, a facility the size of Dymon’s Kanata location would ordinarily take up to 36–48 months to fill in the US.

SO WHO IS YOUR TYPICAL DYMON CUSTOMER? The reasons why people need storage are endless. For example, people selling their homes use Dymon. It has been proven that a decluttered, well staged home will sell more quickly and at a higher price. Dymon is also great if you are downsizing or if you simply have too much stuff and need to make room in your home. Many customers also use Dymon to store their possessions while their homes are undergoing renovations, or to clear out their garage in the fall to make room for their cars. Interestingly, the majority of Dymon’s customers are women. According to Creighton, “Women are the primary decision maker when it comes to storage, so we have taken particular care to

design our facilities to be attractive to the female consumer.” Dymon does this by its highly focused customer service, security, convenient access, and ultra clean facilities – all factors many women demand. “Women appreciate the quality that Dymon offers – they know their stuff will be safe and secure.” Dymon’s storage facilities are also very attractive to business operators. With free on-site boardrooms, a parcel acceptance service, and flexible yet affordable storage leasing options, Dymon offers the perfect solution for a variety of businesses. “Currently about 25% of each facility is made up of commercial customers,” reports Creighton. “Dymon is perfect for business to store bankers’ boxes, excess merchandise, spare office furniture or work equipment, and seasonal inventory. We even have some business customers who use their storage unit as their own mini-warehouse instead of renting a larger building with much higher fixed overhead.” This fall, Dymon is also preparing to launch a new convenient document storage, retrieval and destruction business ideally suited for all types of business. “These additional services that will be offered to our customers represent another natural evolution of our business as we continue to serve our business customers better,” concludes Creighton. Dymon is certainly not prepared to rest on its laurels and existing business successes. “We are continually introducing new services and products to improve what Dymon has to offer,” says

Dymon even assists you if you want to sell any of your stuff. DymonMine.com offers its customers the chance to sell things in a totally secure and convenient fashion. Dymon will photograph, describe and upload items to its website where potential buyers can view them or they can drop down to the facility and have a look. And just this month DymonMine.com introduced its new offer/ counter offer system where buyers and sellers can negotiate by e-mail, totally anonymously. The new process is fun, simple, and effective. When items are sold, Dymon issues a cheque to the customer, who doesn’t even have to know who bought the item. “Many Dymon customers were saying they wanted to sell some of their excess stuff, but they were frustrated that there weren’t really many convenient sales options available to them,” says DymonMine.com’s Manager, Peter Kalil “so we developed our on-line marketplace as a safe, convenient, hassle-free way for customers to sell and buy stuff.”

You should take the time to drop by one of Dymon’s convenient locations across the City – they really are unlike anything you have ever seen before. If you have too much stuff and need to declutter, and we all face that situation from time to time, Dymon should definitely be the place you end up.

Things going swimmingly as Max begins co-op with newspaper EMC lifestyle – G’day, realm of newspaper, it’s a pleasure to introduce myself as Maximilian Moore - of course, you can call me Max. I ride from Arnprior District High School’s Co-op department, lovingly and carefully placed at the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC. Co-op, if you’re curious, is a program set in place to send green boys and girls into the working world. Essentially they tear us away from our Mommy and Daddy hidey holes and plunk us down into rough, hard, coffee-induced atmospheres to prepare us for our futures. I’m lovin’ it! As for myself, I’m currently wading through my victory lap at the school, the fifth and final installation in my high school saga. As one of the few to brave the hallways of ADHS voluntarily, I think I speak for all the fifth years when I say, I’m not sure why I’m here.

It’s a sinking feeling when the reports from your post-secondary pals start rolling in; the parties, the hip Cafes, the new friends ... Blubbering aside, a written word cannot express my excitement for my placement here at the Chronicle-Guide EMC. For years now, all I’ve wanted to be was a reporter for the New York Times or the Globe and Mail. To finally be apart of that world, to be here in this building writing these words about myself for everyone to see, it’s an overwhelmingly wondrous emotion. Film photography is an oddly fulfilling pastime, and I recommend it, assuming you have nine trillion clams and everlasting patience laying around. Pointing and shooting a camera is easy; pointing and shooting an extension of your hand is beauty. A form I haven’t quite mastered, but it’s a powerful skill - the ability to morph grotesque into glam is near divine

in my books. I am Fishman. Competitively, I swim. I swim my lungs out. My 50-freestyle time is 28.3 seconds - for you swimmers out there - in a 25-metre pool. As a lifeguard at the Nick Smith Centre, one of my duties (and great honours, the kidlums positively love that guy with the glasses as his instructor!) is to instruct swimming lessons. From ages 0 and up, I’ve jumped in the pool and taught the ancient art breaststroke to many and many a kids. So enough about me; onto the news and the events and the happenings of everything around us. From now unto January you’ll be getting perspective from the brain of an 18year-old journalist wannabe on the high school and anything pertaining to us youngsters. I am elated to become another public voice, and through thick and thin, I’ll be here to deliver you your community.

day also include players from Osgoode, Rideau, Carleton Place, West Carleton and Arnprior, said DeAveiro. “Soccer’s gone that route,” said DeAveiro. “They’ve taken all the west-end clubs and merged them into one. “When you combine all the smaller associations and form just one large association, you have all the best kids playing together and they don’t have to leave their area to go and play (competitively).” Details of the proposed merger still have to be ironed out and nothing has been approved by the executives of either association. “Discussions continue towards looking at an Ottawa west organization including Kanata and Goulbourn and will continue on throughout the coming year to ensure members’ expectations … have been met,” said Paula Warnholtz, a member of the Kanata Youth Basketball Association executive. Discussions are still in the early stages between the association presidents, who will bring a proposal for consideration by their executives at a later date. If the merger is approved, the new west-end basketball association – the name has yet to be decided – would start with a pilot-program next year, with up to four competitive teams in the younger age groups. “We’re hoping two years from now there’ll be just one association in the west end,” said DeAveiro. ELITE PROGRAM

DeAveiro said a merger is the next logical step in a process that started this year, with the Kanata basketball association agreeing to absorb the Ottawa Next Level, an elite-level program that develops some of the city’s best players. See BASKETBALL, Page 23

David Byck, president of the Goulbourn Basketball Association, said the proposed merger would provide more opportunities to develop players on house league, competitive and elite teams. “It just increases the gene pool,” said Byck. “The better the players, the better the programs – that has a ripple effect; we can provide more resources for our houseleague coaches.” House league and competitive league coaches would have the opportunity to learn from Ottawa Next Level coaches, as well as from guest speakers from the Ontario Basketball Association and special coaching clinics. Byck said this will have a “trickle-down effect” on all levels of basketball. Goulbourn and Kanata’s house league teams would still run under the name of the Goulbourn Hornets and the Kanata Cavaliers, he added. “Goulbourn has a very strong reputation around the

“We’re already doing a referee development program with Kanata. We’ve done coaching clinics with them. “This isn’t the first time we’ve been connecting with Kanata in a constructive way.” DeAveiro said he hopes the west Ottawa basketball association will eventually expand to include teams and players from Carleton Place, Arnprior and West Carleton. “Down the road we’re looking at making it bigger in bringing Goulbourn into the situation and building basketball specifically in the west end,” he said.

R0011462661

“It’s a vision of building basketball in the west end, providing our kids with quality coaching and the competition that they seek and desire,” said DeAveiro. “Our kids want to be exposed to and play against the best teams and those teams are Toronto, those teams are the U.S., those teams are Montreal.” The merger will help children in all levels of basketball, from ages five to 18, including those in house league, said DeAveiro. DeAveiro held tryouts for the under U-19 Ottawa Next Level basketball team at Franco Ouest high school on Sept. 5. The players came from across the city and as far away as Brockville, all hoping for a chance to play on the elite-level team, a talented group that every year competes against some of the best teams in Ontario, Quebec and the United States. DeAveiro created the Ottawa Next Level program in 2006, when he was the head coach of the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees men’s basketball team, as a way to scout and develop young players capable of making the jump to university ball when they graduate from high school. “There’s so much talent out there right now,” he said. “Right now we’ve fallen short in terms of providing them with the programs, the coaches, the resources that these kids need to become very good basketball players and compete against the powerhouses, which is more (in) southern Ontario. “We believe there’s enough good basketball players in Ottawa, where our kids are all together and they’re not scattered playing for different teams, that can compete against teams in Toronto and beat them.”

end would keep Kanata and Stittsville’s players in the community, said Byck. In the past, Goulbourn’s best basketball players travelled as far as Gloucester to play on competitive teams. “That’s tough on the families; that’s tough on the parents,” said Byck. The proposed merger wouldn’t result in any unusual fee increases, said Byck. Kanata and Goulbourn’s basketball associations have already been working together to provide a broader house league program for children. “We’re already working with Kanata,” said Byck.

Packers split away games to start the season Donation to the food bank will get fans in free to Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Junior B home opener Friday John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

MIKE YEAS

Arnprior Packers goalie Kyle Lamothe smothers the puck during frantic action in the game against the Renfrew Timberwolves last Friday. Arnprior spotted Stittsville the ďŹ rst goal, but responded less that two minutes later when one of the few returning veterans, Derrin Lehoux, scored from veteran Ethan Allard, a recent trade pick-up from Renfrew. Before the ďŹ rst period was over, Lehoux scored again, on the power-play, from John McLean. Steege gave Arnprior a 3-1 lead in the second, scoring a short-handed marker from Lehoux. After Stittsville had tied the game with two third-period goals, Lehoux and Allard set up Steege for the winning tally at 16:49. Goalie Kyle Lamothe made 39 saves as the Royals outshoot the Packers 42-29. While he is still tinkering with his lines, Patrick feels the Steege-Lehoux-Allard trio, which combined for eight points in the game, has the potential to be an offensive force. Steege, a product of the Muskrat hockey system in Cobden, appears to be ready to centre a number one line, he said. Against Renfrew, Allard gave Arnprior the early lead on a feed from Corey Chaplin, before the Wolves snapped in two quick tallies to go up 2-

1. But before the ďŹ rst period ended Riley Shore set up Ryan Patrick with a goal and scored one himself as the Packers regained the lead. The two teams traded goals in the second, with former Packer Patrick Dick scoring for Renfrew and Patrick, again from Shore, tallying his second for Arnprior. In the third, Casey Doner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who was a Packer up until about a week before â&#x20AC;&#x201C; snapped a dart past Lamothe on a Renfrew power-play 3:51 into the period. Less than two minutes later while killing a penalty, Adam Gale and Tanner Smith teamed up for a take-away at the Packer blueline. They walked in two-on-one with Gale giving Renfrew its ďŹ rst lead since 21. Wolves iced the game with two more goals in the ďŹ nal seven minutes. Each team had seven powerplays, but the Wolves clicked four times while holding Arnprior off the scoresheet. Both sides netted a shorthanded marker. The Packers held a 39-36 shots edge. Most came in the second period when Wolves netminder Nicolas Hodgins was at his busiest making 19 saves. Matt Gagne, who was

The team has hired Sean Marcellus, a local marketing graduate, to help on that front, he said. As for the on-ice product, Patrick is optimistic the Packers will be competitive â&#x20AC;&#x153;game in and game outâ&#x20AC;? and make the playoffs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;where anything can happen.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a hard-working team with a great goaltender, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to have a good crowd (Friday),â&#x20AC;? he said, noting that Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster will include Crozier and former Packer captain Ryan Eady. With the National Hockey League players locked out, fans should turn their attention to exciting Junior B hockey, he added. After a game in Perth Sunday, Sept. 23, the Packers will host their second home game of the season Friday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. when the Ottawa Junior Canadians with Collins, Smith, Parker and Gagnon possibly in their line-up come to town.

EMC sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Take away the third periods and the Arnprior Packers had a great weekend. As it was the Packers came away with a split in two away games with Renfrew Timberwolves and Stittsville Royals, despite blowing leads in both games. Interim coach Shawn Patrick was pleased with the play of his new-look Junior B hockey team, considering many of his skaters had only played together for one one-hour practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will only get better,â&#x20AC;? he promised, saying Arnprior fans will be in for some exciting hockey this Friday, Sept. 21 when the Packers host Almonte Thunder in an 8 p.m. start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a very decent team â&#x20AC;Ś there is lots of local talent and we have great speed.â&#x20AC;? To get more fans into the rink for their home opener, the Packers are admitting free everyone who brings a non-perishable item for the Arnprior and District Food Bank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to get a good response,â&#x20AC;? said Patrick, noting that new owner Marco Scapillati is big on community involvement. In the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League season opener in Renfrew Sept. 14, Arnprior took a 4-3 lead into the third period only to lose 7-4. A few mental breakdowns led to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downfall, said Patrick, adding he felt the Packers outplayed the Wolves for two of the three periods. On Sunday in Stittsville, the Packers blew a 3-1 lead in the third period, only to pull out a 4-3 win thanks to rookie Jared Steegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal with 3:11 left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was impressed â&#x20AC;Ś they never gave up,â&#x20AC;? said Patrick. It was a dramatic turnaround for the Packers, who suffered two lopsided losses to the Royals in pre-season play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It goes to show exhibition games donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean anything,â&#x20AC;? said Patrick, noting he had played his rookies in those games to see who should make the club.

has a cottage in White Lake. Returning goalie, Mike Cheslock, who is from Arnprior, is the back-up. Patrick said he realizes the Packers defense could do with some improvement, but that should come when they get used to playing with each other. Patrick is also eyeing some Junior A cuts to shore up the blueline. As for the forwards, the Packers have three scoring lines and one good checking one, he noted. While admitting the team has traded away several good players from last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship squad, the deals were necessary, he insisted. Star forward Taylor Collins asked for a trade to a Metro team because of school commitments, said Patrick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got lots of talent back (three forwards and two blueliners) â&#x20AC;Ś kids who will play for us for three years, while Taylor only had six months (of Junior B) left.â&#x20AC;? Patrick said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to trade local product Matt Crozier to Almonte, but got back Riley Shore, who had three points against the Wolves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Mattyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights return to us at the end of the season,â&#x20AC;? he noted.

The mist spread across the Madawaska River at Burnstown early in the morning Sept. 9, but by the time 88 rowers took to the water an hour later, it was all systems go. The Burnstown Rowing Club hosted Sunday’s recreational regatta, as it has done for a number of years. The Ottawa Rowing Club had about 50 members competing, while some of Burnstown’s 40 members also took to the water. The Ottawa New Edinburgh, Quinte (Belleville) and St. Lawrence Rowing Club of Cornwall were also represented, organizer Heather Lang noted. There was one paddler who made the trek from Hurd’s Lake to compete. Competitors paddled from the Burnstown beach up-river past the bridge to the starting point of the contests, and they had the race coming back. Races were three and five kilometres before lunch, followed by a 3-km and 1,000metre fun event in the afternoon. Although it was a recreational regatta, races were sanctioned by Rowing Canada and Rowing Ontario and results recorded. Four officials were on hand to view the action. It was a bright sunny day, and Lang said they couldn’t ask for much better along the beautiful shores of the Madawaska River. “It was excellent. The Ottawa rowers love our regatta. They come every year,” she said. It was a feather in the cap of the Burnstown Rowing Club,

Burnstown Rowing Club members, from left, Mark Robson, Bill Stevens and Guiseppe Lund, came home with silver medals at the Canadian Masters Rowing Championships in Montreal in August. in that competitors in the regatta included three of their own rowers who won silver medals at the Canadian Masters Rowing Championships in Montreal Aug. 12. Burnstown Rowing Club president Mark Robson and past-president Bill Stevens teamed up to earn silver in doubles, and a third Burnstown club member, Guiseppe Lund, captured a silver in singles. MASTERS MEMORIES

“It was 1,000 metres and we rowed at the Olympic Basin in Montreal,” Stevens said. “We lost (gold) by less than a second. The winning team beat us by .8 of a second. “They got a better start than we did,” Stevens added of what became a see-saw race. “At the first 100 metres, they were ahead of us. Through the body of the race, they were behind us, (but) they picked it up. “We were a bow behind

them and almost caught them at the end. They were running out of gas.” The winning two-man crew was from Edmonton. Stevens and Robson finished with a time of three minutes, 42 seconds. They will be competing in a Boston regatta in late October. Lund’s event featured five competitors in what also was a 1,000-metre race. “I led the pack until the last 250 metres. “The race had buoyed lanes and I was leading until I hit a buoy with my oar.” Lund said he is more accustomed to racing where the route is unobstructed by lanes. However, he was pleased with his time of 3:51. “I said at the beginning, I wanted to be less than four minutes.” Lund said the presence of older rowers is inspiring. “There were guys 85 still racing and putting in a very good time. If I’m still racing in 25 years, I’ll be very happy.”

Local figure skaters reach prestigious gold levels Jessica also competed in her second triathlon this summer, placing third in the girls 12 and 13 category at the Kids of Steel event in Petawawa. Kaitlynn Millins, who has skated with the Arnprior Figure Skating Club for years, has earned her second gold level. She also reached gold in interpretive skating. Millins is off to Trent University to start her second year and hopes to continue skating there. The Arnprior Figure Skating Club held its registration Sept. 12. However, it’s not too late to register for the various programs the club runs. Registration forms available on the Arnprior Figure Skating Club website at www.arnpriorskating.ca.

EMC sports – Two members of the Arnprior Figure Skating Club have their gold levels. It is a major accomplishment for Jessica Daze and Kaitlynn Millins, as it takes years to complete, said coach Linda Daze. Skate Canada recognized their achievement by sending them each a gold pin and certificate. Jessica Daze has completed her gold dances after reaching her gold skills last year. At 13 she is the youngest club member to complete gold levels. She skates and teaches with the Arnprior Figure Skating Club and also skates on a synchronized skating team out of Petawawa. That team placed second at the Ontario Winter Games this year.

Caregiver takes services for seniors on the road

Kayla Sparling uses items like her guitar and small weights to help keep seniors active and healthy. Her new business, KayKare Senior Services, will help keep seniors in their homes longer.

Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC business - A unique and original approach to senior services is now being offered in Arnprior. Kayla Sparling explained that KayKare Senior Services offers individually customized health care services for seniors. A focus of her new business is fall prevention and getting seniors active, she added â&#x20AC;&#x153;I assist clients in long term care facilities, retirement homes or in the comfort of their own home,â&#x20AC;? said Sparling. Her experience includes working at the Grove Nursing Home in Arnprior for several years. She is currently pursuing a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in gerontology through Laurentian University. One of the most unique features of KayKare is that it takes the services on the road, bringing to seniors the programs and equipment they need. Services and activities are designed to promote active and comfortable aging, said Sparling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to ensure optimal aging and allow a longer, healthier, more enjoyable life span for the aging population,â&#x20AC;? she said.

There is government funding available for some services, too, said Sparling and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be happy to sit down with anyone to look at options and programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do a free assessment,â&#x20AC;? said Sparling, which is a good chance for seniors to see if the services are a good fit for what they need.

Arnprior resident set to rappel for Easter Seals Kate Glynn

EMC news - Arnprior resident Tara Coughlan will soon be dubbed a ‘Superhero’. The 24-year-old plans to rappel down 18 storeys of the National Ottawa Hotel and Suites north tower on Queen Street in downtown Ottawa early next week in support of Easter Seals. While she may not need superpowers to accomplish the task, she will need $1,500 in donations to take part in the event. Coughlan has signed up to participate in the third annual Easter Seals Drop Zone Ottawa presented by Morguard, scheduled to take place Monday, Sept. 24. Easter Seals Drop Zone is a unique fundraising event that encourages ordinary individuals to become ‘superheroes’ for a day. Participants step outside their comfort zone to face fears by rappelling from the top of a building while raising funds for Easter Seals children. Individuals must meet the challenge of raising $1,500 in order to take part in the drop zone challenge. Coughlan first learned of the rappelling fundraiser last year, while listening to the radio. “It’s different than the regular walk/run type of events that I have participated in the past,” she noted. GIVING BACK

SUBMITTED TARA COUGHLAN

Tara Coughlan practices Monday for her rappelling adventure Sept. 24 in Ottawa in a fundraiser for Easter Seals.

The Arnprior District High School graduate participated in two Relay for Life fundraisers held while she was a student at the school. The all-night event is held to celebrate the lives of those living with cancer, to remember those loved ones lost to the disease and to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.

‘I haven’t done any fundraising since high school and I thought this would be a cool opportunity and a way for me to give back,” she said, adding that she has always enjoyed challenging herself physically. A graduate of Algonquin College’s Police Foundations program, she confessed she has never tried repelling before. “We had physical activity in our program but mostly defence tactics - nothing like this,” she admitted. Coughlan says she is a bit of an adrenaline junkie with activities like skydiving on her personal bucket list. “But most importantly, it (rappelling) goes toward helping kids,” she said. Coughlan, who attended both Brownies and Girl Guides, pointed to overnight camp as one of the highlights of her youth. “That experience of campfires, games, songs and learning to live in the outdoors - no kid would want to miss out on that.” Easter Seals offers the camping experience to about 6,000 youth each summer as well as active living opportunities including sports and social activities throughout the year. According to the organization’s website, there are more than 20,000 children, youth and young adults in Ontario with physical disabilities. Some children born with disabilities such as cerebral palsy and spina bifida, others have suffered spinal cord and brain injuries in childhood accidents or from infections like meningitis. Easter Seals summer camps offer the traditional camp experience with camp fire stories and songs, swimming and kangaroo court but also have climbing walls, high rope course and giant swing, all fully

accessible to kids with disabilities. In addition to camp and active living, Easter Seals services provide specialized mobility and access equipment, adaptive computers, augmentative communication devices and help with adaptations to homes and vehicles for wheelchair accessibility for some 100,000 families nationwide. In the written material distributed to participants of the fundraiser, Coughlan cited the cost of 10 days at a fully accessible Easter Seals Camp as $2,000. This fact helps dismiss any fear she may be harbouring about the upcoming event. ‘NOT REALLY AFRAID’

“I’m not really afraid, but I may be nervous once I get up there,” she offered. To envision the height, she has been eyeing up the 33 floors of the building where she works in Ottawa. This week she will attend a training session that will prepare her for the rappelling experience. Her family, including her boyfriend Josh Campbell, will watch from below. While no one has discouraged her from her mission, no one has offered to participate either, she said. “My boyfriend is a bit wary of heights,” she said. Many participants don a superhero costume for their descent. Coughlan isn’t sure if she will dress-up or not, but said if she does, it will most likely be as cat woman. Coughlan has raised $1,200 so far but requires $300 more to reach her goal.

In spite of the weather, the third annual Ride the Rideau™ bike tour, fuelled by Nordion, raised an incredible $1.72 million to support groundbreaking cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital.

Too many elders suffer abuse and neglect from family members Gwen Rutland Bernadette McCann House

Elder Abuse is a growing social concern, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not new. Too many older adults have suffered abuse and neglect at the hands of family members

and caregivers for too many years. What is new is that there is a growing awareness and concern about elder abuse, putting a new face to this type of family violence. Victims of elder abuse know and trust their abuser. Most victims of elder abuse depend

on the people who hurt them, sometimes for food, shelter, personal care or companionship. Too often the abuse and neglect of older adults is not readily identified by service providers and community members.

Some of the signs and symptoms of elder abuse can include depression, fear, anxiety or passivity, unexplained physical injuries, dehydration or lack of food, poor hygiene, urine sores or bed sores, oversedation. Many older adults may be-

lieve that abuse by a relative is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;family problemâ&#x20AC;? and are ashamed to disclose that a family member is abusive. No one is immune from elder abuse. The majority of abused older adults are in their 60s and 70s. Women are typically more vulnerable to abuse and expe-

EDUCATION

JOHN CARTER/METROLAND

Test driving a Ford was a better idea for ADHS special education students The special education department at Arnprior District High School has benefited big time from a test-driving promotion last spring sponsored by Ford. McAllister Ford owner Bill McAllister showed up at the school last Thursday accompanied by Walter Stack and Carey Zawaszki to present the department with $2,640. Accepting are teachers Sarah Spratt, Sam Cox and Brian Reid and many of the school’s special education students. The students created a large banner to thank the company for its generosity. The money was raised by donations to the Drive One 4 UR School program during a Ford test-driving day at the Arnprior Mall May 12. Bill McAllister chipped in with another $500 to top up the figure raised. As well, students held a carnival during the Ford promotion and collected another $2,700. As a result almost $6,000 is available to go toward much needed physical education and other equipment for the special education department’s lifeskills programs. Spratt said Stack approached her last spring with an offer to have the special education department get involved in the promotion. The result has been successful beyond expectations, she said, noting the money is much appreciated. R0011631036_0920

Agricultural fairs holding steady in rural areas Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

EMC news – We may be living in an increasingly urban world, but the rural fair isn’t going anywhere – at least not in the Ottawa area. Indeed, the educational opportunities at agricultural fairs are even more important than ever, according to Metcalfe Fair spokesperson Cheryl Cooper. She said that as more children grow up in urban settings, rural agricultural fairs play an important role in showing the next generation where their food comes from. “Fifty or 75 years ago most people came from a farm. Now we need to actively teach that (farm knowledge),” she said. “Not everybody has the opportunity ... to grow vegetables or to see a giant pumpkin.” The Metcalfe Fair (Sept. 27-30) offers an annual ‘Barn Door Exhibit’ that welcomes schoolchildren to see and touch the produce that ends up on their dinner tables. Livestock farmers bring their cows, sheep, pigs, rabbits and chickens and other producers showcase their grains, wool and other items that most kids would rarely see. And it’s not just rural families coming to the fair. Cooper said that as the idea of eating locally takes hold, more and more urban families are bringing their children to the weekly farmers’ market and to the annual fair to see first hand what farmers do. “Certainly they’re bringing their families and they want their children to learn where their food is coming from. It’s not just for the rides and the midway,” she said. Ottawa’s environmental movement is leading this charge to

embrace local produce. Savour Ottawa is a collaboration of area farmers that provides a resource for consumers looking to buy local, sustainable food. The theme for Ecology Ottawa’s 2012 Eco Gala in October is ‘Celebrate Local Harvests’ and will include a four-course meal sourced from local producers. A new farmers’ market popped up in Manotick this summer to promote local and sustainable produce. In Ottawa’s rural areas, involvement in the 4-H clubs that give kids hands-on agricultural experiences have remained steady. Cooper said the Metcalfe area’s participation rates, particularly in the dairy sector, are as high as they’ve ever been, if not higher. She said part of the fair’s strength comes from its adaptability. The Metcalfe Fair will celebrate 156 years this September – an anniversary that predates both the city of Ottawa and the formation of Canada. While it has stuck to its rural roots with horse, cattle and sheep shows every day, a fiddle and step-dance competition and popular competitions for best pie, biggest pumpkin and best quilt (among many other categories), it has also embraced what modern audiences want, said Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson. “I find the executives are very progressive minded, they’re always looking to the future. New attractions, they’re always looking for new ideas,” he said. The fair has added a popular demolition derby that draws crowds on the fair’s opening night, and over the years has added attractions like a fashion show, tractor pulls and lawnmower races. This year it will add a classic car show and a truck pull, and has adopted the marketing motto, ‘Make it your fair.’ The Arnprior Fair, which took place Aug. 9 to 12, also features

a demolition derby and truck and tractor pulls alongside the traditional exhibit hall. The Navan Fair, which ran the same weekend, added a ladies’ minivan class to their demolition derby this year. The Richmond Fair, which takes place Sept. 13 to 16, even has a BMX bike show in their lineup, as well as a youth talent show. Cooper said this flexibility attracts new audiences and maintains interest with returning patrons. However some fairs have a different strategy. Carp Fair general manager Joyce Trafford said the west end agricultural fair (Sept. 20-23) has opted not to add modern attractions like a demolition derby or tractor pull, although it does have a midway and evening entertainment. She said maintaining the focus on the fair’s rural traditions is more important than ever. “The exhibitors of livestock are getting less and less, but there’s more and more people who need to know where their food is coming from. So we’re educating people that way,” she said. She said the fair’s biggest challenge is the encroachment of subdivisions and development. “At one time we were sitting pretty in the town of Carp, and we weren’t totally surrounded by houses,” she said. “There are subdivisions around every agricultural ground now. So we, the organizers of agricultural fairs, are growing (but) we have to work within our boundaries of being landlocked.” The Carp fair, for the time being, has solved this problem by limiting on-site parking and shuttling visitors to the fair from off-site parking instead. Cooper said no matter the challenges, area fairs are still going strong – and Metcalfe’s especially. “We’re the oldest and certainly the last fair of the year,” she said. “As other agricultural events have seen their end, we took on the regional shows ... and that gives us some added strength.”

Research project to focus on need for tourism, retail workers EMC news - The local unemployment rate hovers around seven per cent, but some industries are crying out for workers. Federal finance ministry data projects the shortfall in the availability of workers in Ontario to reach an estimated high of 1.8 million by 2031, depending on the level of population growth. Without effective action at the local, provincial and national levels, Ontario will face a future with large numbers of unskilled workers looking for jobs that require skills they do not possess, and a large number of jobs that will go unfilled. In order to address this issue in Eastern Ontario, the Labour Market Group of Renfrew and Lanark and the 1000 Islands Region Workforce Development Board are working together with associations and organizations in both Renfrew and Lanark counties to identify future employment opportunities, specifically in the tourism, hospitality and retail industries. The organization plans to use this information to develop solutions to potential skill shortages. The Youth Filling Employment Gaps in Retail and Tourism project is funded in part by the federal government Youth Awareness initiative. The project will run until the middle of February and has very clear objectives, says project manager Keanan Stone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first step is research and analysis, identifying occupations in the tourism, hospitality and retail sectors where there are current and future employment needs in the local community,â&#x20AC;? said Stone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are then charged with developing an electronic tool and handbook specifically aimed at youth, guidance and employment

Making a difference Emma Laughlan and Hayden Lacasse from Arnprior held a lemonade, coffee, cookie and yard sale on Aug. 25 with all proceeds going to the local Humane Society. The girls raised $142.15 from sales and donations. Thanks to everyone for making a difference.

The first public phase of the project was launched last week and its success is very much dependent on the willingness of businesses and operators to get involved, said Stone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Members of the tourism, hospitality and retail industries are being asked to complete a five-minute labour study online, over the phone or in person,â&#x20AC;? he explained.

I hope you had a pleasant and enjoyable summer. Thank-you to all those constituents who took the time to say hi during the community constituency clinics. The fall session of Parliament promises to be busy and productive. September means back to school. The Canada Student Loans Program (CSLP) offers financial assistance to full- and part-time students pursuing post-secondary education, in the form of loans, grants and repayment assistance. The CSLP is delivered in partnership with the province, as is the case for health care. Primary health-care services continue to be a priority for the federal government. Residents should not have to live in a large city like Toronto to receive quality treatment. Starting in April of this year for individuals who commit to working in a designated community, (which generally means the community has a population of less than 50,000), family doctors and residents in family medicine will be eligible to receive up to $8,000 per year in Canada Student Loan forgiveness to a maximum of $40,000 over five years; nurses and nurse practitioners will be eligible to receive up to $4,000 per year to a maximum of $20,000 over five years. To apply for loan forgiveness for the federal student loan portion, family doctors and nurses must have been employed, (full-time, part-time

MPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column for September. or casual) for a full year (12 months) in a designated rural or remote community (or communities) and have provided in-person services for a minimum of 400 hours (or 50 days) in that community. Questions regarding the recent decision by the province to freeze funding to family health teams should be directed to your provincial member, as the delivery of health care is a provincial responsibility. EI BENEFIT

New parents are encouraged to contact my office for details of the recent announcement made by our government about a new Employment Insurance benefit. This special, new EI benefit is intended to ease the financial burden on parents who take time off to care for a critically ill or injured child. Parents who must take time off work to care for a child who has a life-threatening illness or injury will be able to apply for up to 35 weeks of this new EI special benefit. If you have any concerns of a federal nature, or just want to share your views with me, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 84 Isabella St. just off downtown Pembroke or call 613-732-4404. The office is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.

M&M promotes family Was Anna really lazy? meal togetherness EMC business - M&M Meat Shops is once again stepping up to the plate and encouraging Canadians to enjoy the tradition of the family dinner. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Family Dinner Night is tonight (Thursday, Sept. 20). Canadiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives have never been busier, so setting aside quality time for family is a challenge. However, the importance of family dinners reaches far beyond simply sharing a meal together. Gathering together around the dinner table presents a valuable opportunity to interact, strengthen relationships and affirm the value of each family member. M&M Meat Shopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Na-

tional Family Dinner Night has been bringing Canadian families closer together for the past seven years by recognizing the importance of sharing a meal with family and friends. This annual event has gained support from families, community leaders and dignitaries across the country, and has contributed to the more than $23.1 million M&M Meat Shops has raised for the Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC). Each year M&M Meat Shops urges every person in Canada sitting down to dinner on Sept. 20 to register their participation online to demonstrate the significance of getting together with fam-

ily and friends. And new this year, everyone who registers their family meal will be automatically entered for a chance to win $500 in M&M Meat Shops gift cards. To enter, visit www.nationalfamilydinnernight.com between Sept. 4 and 20. The website will also feature a link for supporters to make a personal donation to the CCFC. Canada has among the highest incidence of Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and ulcerative colitis - two similar yet distinct conditions also known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) - in the world. There is no known cause or cure and the number of cases continues to grow.

EMC lifestyle - If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever come across a recipe for Anadama bread, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably familiar with the story of how it got its name. One of the early pioneers in New England supposedly had a lazy wife named Anna. She never had supper ready for him, but every night she would serve him cornmeal mush or pudding. Finally getting tired of this, the fellow stirred some flour and molasses into the mush and put it on the fire to bake. All the time, he kept muttering, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anna, damn her!â&#x20AC;? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what his bread tasted like, but I can guarantee that once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tasted this bread machine version, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make it often. Made with cornmeal, molasses and flour, Anadama bread is very light in texture, brown in color and slightly

sweet in flavour. It goes well with almost any meal, but I particularly like to serve it with chili or soup. This bread keeps well and stays fairly moist for about two days. ANADAMA BREAD

2/3 cup water 2 tbsp. cornmeal 1 1/2 tsp. butter or margarine 2 tbsp. molasses

1 1/2 cups flour 1/2 tsp. salt 1 tsp. bread machine yeast Measure the ingredients into your bread machine in the order given. Start it, using either the Delay or Regular cycle. When the bread is done, remove it from the baking pan, and set it on a wire rack for about one hour to cool before slicing. This recipe makes a small loaf, ideal for 2 to 4 people.

More than $3,000 raised at Car Show for Dad Sherry Haaima

Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC events - It’s an annual event that raises funds for a great cause and puts a host of vintage and modern vehicles on display for car lovers of all ages.

The eighth Annual Summer’s End Car Show for Dad was held Saturday, Sept. 15 at the Renfrew Fairgrounds. There were 224 entries in this year’s show, said organizer Ray Beimers. Included were several from the Arnpri-

or area with two of the winners being from Braeside and Pakenham. About $3,200 was raised for the Canadian Cancer Society. “We’re really pleased,” said Beimers. “Especially since there were two other events going on and the weather forecast was less than favourable, we’re very happy with the turnout and we’re extremely happy with getting eight big rigs into that category, which was added this year.” Beimers said he heard positive comments all around. “We had a favourable response from participants and attendants,” he said. The ninth annual Car Show for Dad will take place Sept. 14, 2013. For more information visit Renfrew Car Show for Dad on facebook or send an email to renfrewcarshowfordad@ gmail.com AWARDS

Car show organizer Ray Beimers, left, presents the trophy for best big rig to Steve Hardy of Winchester for his 2004 Peterbilt 379. Hardy has participated in several shows with the truck, which is the first one he has owned.

Family traditions continue with ownership changes at ATC Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC business - There may be some new faces at Arnprior Truck Centre, but the public can expect the same great service and attention to detail to which they have become accustomed. And new owner Kevin Ince has a host of ideas and plans to ensure things will just get better and better for the budget-minded customer who demands quality products and service. Kevin Ince and his sons Martin and Eric took over the business in July from Jack and his son John Murdoch. An Arnprior native, Ince has always had family in the area and is happy to be back in business in his hometown. He has several successful business ventures underway, including a golf course in Huntsville. “We are car people,” said Ince, whose son Martin handles the service side of the truck centre while Eric is business manager. Along with auto sales, Arnprior Truck Centre offers a full service centre, complete with affordable parts and services. “We also do RV repairs and of course we sell RVs, motorhomes, boats and pontoon boats. We have the facility, we have the expertise and the parts,” said Ince. The owners are committed to finding the most cost effective options for their customers. “Our focus is providing added value in sales and service to the budget-minded customer,” said Ince. In fact, said Ince, he is working on several revolutionary concepts designed to benefit consumers. The Inces are also in tune with what’s going on in the industry and are always quick to pick up and offer promotions and discounts offered through suppliers. The Murdochs are pleased to see the family traditions continue at the business. The Ince family was chosen from several potential buyers for that reason, said Jack Murdoch. “We chose them specifically because they seemed best suited to look after the public and our customers with honesty and respect,” he said.

Jack Bird of the Arnprior No Frills grocery store presents a donation to the Arnprior Parks and Recreation youth department for its popular after-school program. The money will go toward funding staff for the program . Youth co-ordinator Kayla Menkhorst accepts the cheque from Bird as Shay Klimpel and Don Gougeon, who help run the program, look on. Bird said it is a pleasure to be able to support such a valuable community endeavour.

After-school program starts registration EMC lifestyle - The Arnprior Parks and Recreation youth department is running its free afterschool program again this year. And this year a unique science program is being added. The regular afterschool program, for Grades 4 to 8, is made possible by community partners, particularly Jack and Faithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No Frills and Ontario Power Generation. The two provide funding for the program, which is run at all Arnprior elementary schools, as well as at McNab. No Frills provides money to help pay for staffing through the Loblaws charity program. OPG donates money for healthy snacks for the students.

The program has been running for six years and fills up quickly at most schools, notes youth co-ordinator Kayla Menkhorst. She advises parents to sign up their students quickly. Deadline for registration is Monday, Oct. 1. The program focuses on keeping the students active in the hour it runs after school is out. Staff organize non-traditional, non competitive games for the students. It runs Mondays at McNab, Tuesdays at John XXIII, Wednesdays at Walter Zadow and St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and Thursdays at A.J. Charbonneau. The maximum for each school is 25 students.

The program starts on the week of Oct. 15. This year a new Innovation Expo science program is being added to the offerings. In what is a first in Ontario, says Menkhorst, there will be one-hour classes after classes at the participating schools. Such topics as weather, ecosystems and natural disasters are on the subject list. The free program is aimed at Grade 4 to 6 students. It is being held after school at the four Arnprior elementary schools, again Mondays to Thursdays. Youth Science Ontario is funding the program. Registration is being held at the same time as the regular after-school program.

Veterans dinner has Legion week off to great start Janet Tobio Arnprior Legion

EMC events – Yes it has started, a whole week of celebrations and good times to honour the official start of Legion week and their veterans, families and friends that make up this great organization. Arnprior’s Legion week always starts by inviting all veterans to a dinner on the Sunday starting Legion week, which is celebrated the third week of September each year. No exceptions this year, as Sunday Sept. 16 saw a full house, with over 100 attending a wonderful roast beef dinner with all the trimmings. The volunteers in the kitchen out did themselves again. The 2360 Royal Canadian Army Cadets were out in force to support their sponsor, the Legion, and they did a great job serving the meal and chatting with the veterans. Appropriate background music was supplied by Monty & Friend before dinner and the Valley Concert Band as usual did a fine job of entertaining and accompanying the veterans in celebrating their salute to their regiments, units and corps. Sergeant-at-Arms Yvon Ouellet mustered up an impressive flag party to open the evening ceremonies. Two serving Regular Force lads and two old-ER veterans proudly led the head table into the dining area. The guest speaker, newly-appointed Legion Zone G6 Commander Dave Cormier, and his wife Connie were special guests for the evening as were mayors Mary Campbell from McNab-Braeside Mayor David Reid from Arnprior. The evening wound up with more music by Monty & Friend. To those who missed it, you were missed. Hopefully you will make it for the rest of the week’s celebrations.

The gang at the Arnprior Legion hosted their annual Legion Week breakfast for downtown businesses and their employees Wednesday. About 40 people showed up to enjoy a sumptuous breakfast. Among those officiating at the event and serving up the food are Sgt.-at-Arms Yvon Ouellet, Betty Trahan, Shirley Langton, Theresa Carron, Frank Gorman, Bernie Gorman, Brian Kilby, Randy Caldwell, Jan Tobio, Levis Trahan, Ron Long and Judy Kilby. Mel Porter and Lori Ann Keating were also on hand to sell 50/50 and Thanksgiving basket raffle tickets.

Prayers get family through tough times of Dirty Thirties praying, it was how often, and how fervently you did so. And so every night before we went to bed, we were marched upstairs to what Emerson irreverently called “the scrunch corner.” That was because we all had to scrunch down around Mother’s knee when she settled into the old rocking chair that sat under the window in the corner of the room. It was in my sister Audrey’s and my bedroom, which was really the upstairs hall, and the corner we prayed in, was hardly big enough to hold all of us. Mother would wait until we had all settled down around her knee, our eyes were closed and our hands were in steeples, and then she would begin. Her first prayers were ones we said every night. Exactly the same, word for word. And I wondered back then, if God got bored listening to the same prayers over and over again.

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

When those prayers were finished, we then said special prayers for everything from rain to good crops, to a bountiful vegetable garden and a good day of selling door-todoor in Renfrew. And Mother never forgot the old woman who lived alone in Renfrew, Granny Hines on the next farm, and the minister’s wife, who Mother thought was a saint! They were all part of our nightly prayers. And then, of course, we were expected to come up with our own prayers when all the group praying was over. That idea came to a great and glori-

ous end when Emerson prayed that something evil would befall his very worse enemy at the Northcote School. Mother said, what we would do instead was pray silently to ourselves. I asked her how God would hear us if we didn’t say the prayers out loud. Mother assured me, He would be well aware of my silent prayers. And so began a lifetime of silent praying. Our Lutheran minister certainly didn’t believe in silent prayers I thought back then. In fact, his prayers were so loud, at the time I figured they could hear them in the United

Healing in the Valley is thrilled to present

Church a stone’s throw away. And I wondered if your prayers had an advantage if you took on the pained look that came across our minister’s face whenever he opened his mouth. I asked my older and much wise sister Audrey if she thought he had sore feet, because not only did he have a pained look on his face, he had the habit of rocking from one foot to the other. To be honest, I was so intrigued with the minister when he was praying that I couldn’t take my eyes off him, when, in fact, I was supposed to be sitting in the pew ramrod straight, in deep concentration. Audrey said it had nothing to do with sore feet. It had to do with the sincerity of the message. I had no idea what my sister was getting at, so I just had to sit there, Sunday after Sunday, with my own thoughts. And then it occurred to me that maybe there was some-

thing to this silent prayer business. After all, if a whole lot of people were doing it at the same time, that alone should have an impact and greatly impress God. And so praying silently became part of my life. We also prayed every morning at the Northcote School. Right after Miss Crosby read a verse from the bible, she said the Lord’s Prayer, and we repeated it after her. One day I realized we did a lot of praying out there in Northcote ... there were the Graces at every meal, morning prayers at the Northcote School, our nightly prayers around Mother’s knee at night, and the silent prayers each of us were encouraged to offer. I thought back then, with the Depression closed in around us like a tight vice, and every day a struggle for survival, it was the prayers, in whatever form they were given, were what really got us through the Dirty Thirties.

EMC lifestyle - We learned to pray at a very early age. Mother was a firm believer in prayer. Father, not so much. Oh, he was a believer in God, but he often wondered why, when we were doing all the right things we were still poor as church mice. Why we lost several cows when lightning hit the big maple tree on the West hill under which the cows were seeking refuse in a storm, was another question he asked. So other than Grace at the table at meal time, Father pretty well left the praying up to Mother. Although Mother was raised a Catholic, she became a Lutheran when she married Father. Nevertheless, when she felt she needed a special prayer answered, she wasn’t above resorting to her Rosary beads. But she always made it clear to us five children, it wasn’t a case of what you used when

Burnstown sculptor unveils 40th anniversary show EMC lifestyle - It was 1972 when Richard Gill put on his first show of pottery at his studio/home in Burnstown that he called Fog Run. His 40th anniversary show, call Landmarks of the Mind, will run from Sept. 28 to Oct. 8. In the early days, the show invitations were hand-drawn and handwritten. The clay was custom mixed in a large hand cranked bread dough mixer using rain water collected in big wooden barrels. The pots were thrown on a kick wheel and baked in a wood-fired kiln, all of which were designed and built by his own hand with the passion and exuberant energy of his youth. The pots were decorated with unique textures and his signature style drawings that evoked the distilled essence of civilization and settlements. The locals loved his pots and folks came in droves from miles around to buy them. When one day a customer commented that they loved his drawings on the pots but had no more need for the pots themselves, he set about to solve the problem. He cut a finished wet pot in half and opened it up put a hanger on the back, fired it and hung it on the wall. When it sold the next day, he knew he was on to something and that’s when his work evolved from functional to purely visual. People started asking him if he would mind rendering their homes, farms or cottages in clay and his skills as a former architect served him well. Now over 50 per cent of his work is custom made by commission.

Today his show invitations are professionally printed, the mailing list has grown and managed by computer and the use of email make things more efficient. The work has evolved with increasingly skillful detail as well as colour with the use of computer operated electric kilns. His landmark 40th show will include a wide variety of material that is sure to appeal to many aesthetics and consists of three collections: Landmarks of the Mind, Flora & Femme and the French River (northern Ontario). Some are pieces that he has wanted to sculpt for years but didn’t fit into the theme of a conceived concept for a show or that he perceived as too complex at the time. Highlights of the show include renditions of the Moulin Rouge, the Stairway to the Paris Opera House, the Eiffel Tower, Monte Carlo, Whitehall, London, St. Peter’s in Rome, Versailles, Santiago de Campostola, Perce Rock, Haida Totem Poles, and St. Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal, as well as closer to home icons like the Chateau Laurier, the Parliament buildings and familiar favorites of the Ottawa Valley to name just a few of more than 100 new works. Others are landmarks that made a lasting impression on him in his youth, such as the Statue of Liberty that he recalls climbing when on a business trip with his father at the age of 16. Or perhaps what was his very first recollection of Big Ben that this mother pointed out to him at the age of 3 indelibly imprinted in his mind. Landmarks of the Mind opens at Bittersweet Gallery in Burnstown Sept. 28 and continues daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to Oct. 8.

SUBMITTED

For 11 years Burnstown artist Richard Gill originally fired his pots and sculptures in a wood-fired kiln of his own design and making. The kiln requires around-the-clock stoking in order to achieve a temperature of at least 2,200 degrees F (photo circa 1970s). His 40th anniversary show, ‘Landmarks of the Mind’, opens at Bittersweet Gallery at Fog Run Studio Friday, Sept. 28 and continues to Oct. 8.

News from the Pakenham library

EMC lifestyle - David Galbraith, who has a studio in White Lake, has created two works of art for the sanctuary of Trinity-St. Andrew’s United Church in Renfrew. The pieces depict the journey of faith and the renewal found in worship using the imagery of nature in summer and fall, the buildings of the church, and the movement of people to and from the buildings.

EMC lifestyle - Remember that the fall hours at the Mississippi Mills public library branches are now in effect. Drop in and find a great read at the Pakenham or Almonte branches. A few of the many new acquisitions this week at the Pakenham Library include: The Innocents by Francesca Segal – Debut novel - fiction; Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness – New York Times bestselling author – fiction; For more information, call 613-624-5306 or visit www. mississippimills.ca/en/live/library.asp.

These paintings, which are massive in scale, will be dedicated in a special worship service Sunday, Sept. 30 at 10 a.m. Galbraith first came to Canada as a child during Second World War. He proudly self-identifies as a Canadian artist and his works have been featured in international exhibitions. He works in oils, acrylics, watercolours and mixed media. His palette is vibrant and he loves texture.

He is excited by the unusual as subject matter, and loses himself, completely, in his creativity. His style ranges from abstract to impressionist and expressionist work. He became connected to the TrinitySt. Andrew’s community through its music program. In addition to being a visual artist, he is a singer and often provides solos in worship at the church.

Prizes pile up at CHEO dream home Dream of a Lifetime Lottery features million dollar home in Manotick area Joseph Morin joe.morin@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about helping children and their families. The launch of the 2012 CHEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dream of a Lifetime Lottery marked the 22nd time community builders and Eastern Ontario residents came together to support their favourite hospital: Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. On Sept. 17, the 4,563-square-foot Minto Dream Home at 110 Gray Willow Place near Manotick welcomed the public and showcased why it is such a wonderful lottery prize. The grand prize is worth $1.6 million and includes a furnished and decorated Minto Dream Home with all furnishings by La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, $100,000 in cash, along with a 2013 Lincoln AKS AWD from Jim Keay Ford Lincoln. Topping that off is house-cleaning for a year from the Maids Home Services, and $5,000 in groceries from Farm Boy. Other prizes include $100,000 cash, a 2013 mustang convertible from Jim Keay Ford Lincoln, $10,000 gift certiďŹ cate from Jubilee Fine Jewelers, Alaskan Cruise for two from Destination anywhere, and that is only the second prize list. The third prize features a 2013 Ford F150 4x4 SuperCrew, a trip for two to Barcelo Maya Colonial Prestige, a $5,000 shopping spree and an Ottawa Senators Flex 40 Package in the 100-level. The early bird prize is $50,000 cash along with a 2013 Ford focus Titanium Hatchback, a trip for two to the Barcelo Beach Prestige Golf Collection and Spa in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic from Marlin Travel and Transat Vacations and an Ottawa Senators Flex 40 Package in the 100-Level.

CEO and president of CHEO Alex Munter thanks the community and sponsors for their continued support of CHEO. Each room of the dream home is overďŹ&#x201A;owing with creative ideas, vibrant colours and modern furnishings. There is even a television in the spacious shower, barn board walls, and a putting green in the back yard and a stylish entertainment centre in the basement. Launching this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dream House

Lottery was CJOHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s news co-anchor Graham Richardson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I appreciate the television in the shower,â&#x20AC;? he joked to a packed room at the dream house. Richardson reminded people at the launch that as nice as the lottery prizes are, supporting CHEO is what the event is all about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The CHEO Foundation really is the embodiment of the support and passion that this community has for its childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hospital,â&#x20AC;? said CHEO CEO Alex Munter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the last 30-40 years our survival rate for cancer has gone to over 80 per cent,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Terry Fox started his marathon, most kids struck by cancer would sadly die. Today over 80 per cent will survive. We are working towards 100 per cent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That high survival rate of 80 per cent is because of research that has happened at CHEO and other hospitals like CHEO,â&#x20AC;? he said. He explained that without the support of communities and donors much of the exciting steps against cancer may not have taken place. Only 63,000 tickets will be sold and because the lottery has sold out in previous years, organizers are encouraging everyone to purchase early. Single tickets cost $100 or three for $250. The closing date for all ticket sales is midnight Friday, Dec. 14 and the Early Bird deadline is midnight, Friday, Nov. 16. The 2,500 Early Bird ticket winners will be drawn Dec. 18, the Early Bird package Dec. 19 and the ďŹ nal draws Jan. 8-9. Details for the 2012 CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Lottery, including a complete rundown of all prizes, can be found online at www.dreamofalifetime.ca.

Arnprior disc jockey earns major ‘industry pioneer’ award John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC entertainment – With the name Glenn Miller, one would expect he’d be interested in music. Miller, an Arnprior disc jockey, not the famous band leader of the 1940s, has won a major award for his longstanding work in the industry. The founder of Canadian Online Disc Jockey Association was presented with the Industry Pioneer Award from the Canadian Professional Disc Jockey Association Sept. 11 in Ottawa. Miller, a member of the Arnprior Legion, has been DJing since 1977. His website says he started while in school, then continued when he moved to Ottawa. While in Ottawa he worked for six years for Canadian D.J.’s, playing parties in places such as Parliament Hill, Chateau Laurier and many downtown hotels for federal politicians and employees, the Canadian Armed Forces, TV personalities, and ethnic groups. He played many weddings and stags, both indoor and outdoor. He even played in the backyards of some of Ottawa’s elite.

In 1989, Miller got the bug to go out on his own and decided that the Ottawa Valley was an area not being serviced properly by many of the Ottawa companies. He established, two companies, Ottawa Valley DJs and Miller Entertainment Services. The multi-system network employed radio and entertainment DJs. From 1996 to 1999 Miller established the a Canadian online site for DJs called DJChat.com. His website says he was the first in the industry to be licensed to DJ with computers.

He used the leading edge DJPower software with a state-of-the-art Pentium IV laptop system. Miller formed the Canadian Online Disc Jockey Association to further the network of training and communications for DJs across Canada. HIs recent efforts were recognized by disc jockeys in the U.S., when they presented him with the American Disc Jockey Industry Service Award for all his work for DJs around the world. After taking some time off after selling his company in 2000, he has returned to the business of entertaining with

his son, Andrew. In 2005 Miller became Canada’s first certified Computer Performance System DJ. National certification is a voluntary program that provides third party recognition of professional and technical competency, he explains. “The public has a right to expect that entertainers are professionally competent, especially within those areas which affect live performances as computerized performance system (CPS) disc jockeys.” For more about Miller, visit his website http://millerandsonsproductions.com/html/ about.php.

Band storms back to Carp Fair this Friday

Cheap Trick returns after disastrous Blues Fest concert one year ago derek.dunn@metroland.com

was a kid in the U.S. scrambling to find reviewers who would assure him such-andsuch a performer or band was worth the money; then travelling to a distant record store that might or might not have the record. “It’s not dead. I’m kinda surprised it’s doing so well. It’s everywhere,” he said. “Today you can release your own recordings, be your own promo machine; it’s the exact opposite of dead. When we were kids there was no information anywhere. Now there’s so much it’s crazy.” If anything there’s a fear that – like the consumption of news – people are focusing too narrowly on what interests them, at the expense of enjoying collective variety and curiosity about new ideas, he said; adding that the embracement of new music is the source of youth. CARP SHOW

Petersson asked a number of questions about Carp and the fair, appearing interested in what to expect when the band arrived. He was impressed to hear of the village’s history and the experience of fair organizers. But in exchange he made no commitments when it comes to what the crowd can expect to see. “We just kinda wing it,” he said. “We get the (song) list together on the spot. It frustrates the crew a little. They want the list early and would like to keep it the same. But we’ll sometimes want to try something new, or something

that we haven’t done in a long time.” There’s good chance fans will hear classics like “Surrender”, “Dream Police”, and “The Flame” but beyond that it could be anything from the 1978 megahit Cheap Trick “Live at Budokan” album or from their 15 other albums. Ticket buyers can also expect to be wowed by their talent. Cheap Trick is known for its use and large collection of unusual and vintage guitars and basses. Zander has played a 1950s Rickenbacker Combo 450 Mapleglo since the late 1970s, as well as a Hamer 12-string guitar, a Schecter Guitar Research Corsair Bigsby, a Gibson Firebird, and various Fender Telecaster-styled guitars. Nielsen is an avid collector who has over 250 guitars in his possession. He has collaborated with Hamer on trademark ‘themed’ guitars, some based on Cheap Trick albums such as Rockford, The Doctor, and even songs such as “Gonna Raise Hell.” Hamer has also made unique five-necked guitars and electric mandocellos for Nielsen. Carlos has played with many different commercial drum accessories, including Ludwig and Slingerland Radio King drums, Zildjian cymbals, rare Billy Gladstone snare drums, and Capella drum sticks. He is also an avid collector of vintage drums. Petersson is generally credited for having the initial idea for a twelve-string bass. Cheap Trick is highly re-

EMC entertainment – There’s little chance the weather will play cheap tricks on the Carp Fair’s headliner this year, seeing that the legendary rock band is playing indoors at the rink. But Ottawa weather, specifically the freak storm that blew Cheap Trick off stage during Ottawa Bluesfest last year, injuring four, is the furthest thing from Tom Petersson’s mind. “Oh, that. Naw, we don’t have any reservations,” Petersson said in an exclusive phone interview from his home in Nashville. “Look, we play a lot of places. I’d love to go back to Ottawa.” Band driver Sandy Sanderson was the worst of four injured during the storm that toppled the entire stadium as they closed out “I Want You To Want Me.” Much of the band’s equipment was destroyed, but Sanderson has managed to recover. “He’s doing fine,” said Petersson. “He’s all right now.” Petersson’s memories are fond ones; wandering about the market enjoying India food, appreciating the wide variety of music played on Canadian radio stations. Canada was one of the first countries to embrace Cheap Trick way back in the early 1970s, something that isn’t lost on the bassist and other core members Rob Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), and Bun E. Carlos (drums). They keep up to date with Can-Con talent such as Fiest, Arcade Fire, and even smaller indie bands like The Weakerthans – prompting Petersson to mention that Canucks are like the English in that they punch far above their weight when it comes to music. “It’s really great stuff coming out of Canada, a really interesting music scene,” he said. “And the stations don’t just do the cookie-cutter stuff.” Many observers have lamented the so-called death of rock’n’roll, but not Petersson. He sees it as just the opposite. Great music is available everywhere, not like when he

spected by its peers and an influence on its descendents. The band was one of Joey Ramone’s all-time favorites and has received acknowledgment from such peers as Gene Simmons, Joe Perry, and Angus Young. In the 1980s, they garnered support from the hard rock community when bands like Mötley Crüe, Ratt and Guns N’ Roses cited their influence. An interesting shift happened during the early to mid-90s that helped fortify the band’s credibility - the band was now being seen as influential within the blossoming alternative rock scene. Kurt Cobain mentioned the band as an influence, while Smashing Pumpkins showed their admiration by having Cheap Trick open shows for them. Other bands that have mentioned Cheap Trick as an inspiration and influence including Pearl Jam, Weezer, Stone Temple Pilots, Green Day, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. “It’s pretty wild,” Petersson said. “I hear more than I’d expect. It’s a compliment when the bands are good. I don’t always see the influence in some.” After four decades of almost continuous touring, the band manages to keep the glitter going. Petersson explained that the name Cheap Trick is actually from the Glitter Rock area. “We were in Philadelphia at the time, I think; and we’re watching Slade, and we just loved Slade, thought they were great. And the show was amazing. They had it all: plaid suits, glitter everywhere, glitter in their teeth, I think,” he said. “And that’s when I turned to (Zander) and said, ‘These guys are throwing every cheap trick in the book at them’. And he said, ‘Hey, that’d make a great name for a band. “And that was the beginning of a great story that’s been going on ever since.” Cheap Trick plays the Carp Fair this Friday, Sept. 21, with Paper Lions opening. The concert is from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Tickets are $73.45 tax included, and available at the Carp Fair Office or through Capital Tickets.

Valley resident a true Hero in the Home sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news - Gisèle Lalonde Mansfield of West Carleton is already a hero to those who know her, especially to her husband Michael. But now Tina Cuerrier, an Arnprior-based nurse who cared for Michael from around 2004-2008, wants to make it official. She has nominated Gisele for the Heroes in the Home Caregiver Recognition Award, which is awarded annually by the Champlain Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) to outstanding caregivers in the home, be they friends, family or professionals. Since 1999, when Michael had a severe stroke, Gisele has been his principal caregiver, sticking steadfastly by his side through many challenges. She is humble regarding the recognition and attributes her husband’s positive attitude to her success as a caregiver. “Michael is such a great patient, I always say that if it wasn’t for him, I certainly wouldn’t be able to do what was required,” said Gisele. She was pleased to hear she’d been nominated. “I was happy, to hear it,” she said. “But I don’t think I’m doing anything out of the ordinary.” Gisele, a volunteer and career woman who has remained active over the years, includ-

Gisèle Lalonde Mansfield of Dunrobin poses happily with her husband Michael.

to look at and say ‘If they can do it, I can do it.’ I have those people.” She is inspired by her husband himself. “I look at Michael and think I’m not the one who’s sitting in the wheelchair day in and day out, going blind, going through pain with ulcers and whatnot,” said Gisele.

and type of care Michael has needed has varied. “It has changed significantly over the course of the years. Some periods it’s been more. Some times he’s been more independent,” said Gisele. “It all depends on how well he’s feeling. Bathing, food preparation, medication, all tasks are part of the daily life of a caregiver.

the course of the winter certainly threw a curve bar at the couple. Michael’s kidney recently failed and he’s now on dialysis, which has seemed to improve his condition. “He looks healthy, he feels a lot stronger,” said Gisele. “When his kidney was failing, it was tough going. Right now, he’s well and we take one day at a time, one battle at a time and we struggle through.” The challenges the Mansfields face, they face together. Married in 1991, it’s a team effort when it comes to making decisions and getting the most of out of life. “When he’s depressed I become depressed,” said Gisele. “And he’s usually the one who gets us out of those types of spirals.” Part of dealing with things involves the realization that there will be ups and downs. “It’s not on a daily basis, but certainly on an annual basis, there’s three or for periods of real highs and extreme lows.” Gisele can’t say enough about the support she’s received over the years, from medical professionals, her employers, her community, her friends as she has maintained a full-time job at the National Arts Centre. “They’ve been extremely supportive through all of this,” she said. “They are truly amazing.

Her fellow volunteers and climbers in the Grandmothers campaign are a great source of inspiration, too, and it’s keeping a sense of self intact that has made it possible to get this far, said Gisele. When she needs inspiration and strength, to whom does she look? “I look to Michael, and to my community as well. We’ve got wonderful neighbours who will drop almost anything they’re doing when I call for assistance. They are a wonderful source of support. That in itself is really a source of strength for me because I know that I need something I know there’s somewhere I can go – my family, my friends my neighbours. Just knowing that is enough to get you through a day.” The CCAC is also a great resource, said Gisele. “I’ve had to call my account manager, crying on the phone saying ‘I can’t handle this, I can’t do this. What do I do, where do I go?’” Very important is something Gisele first learned when Michael had his stroke. “Taking care of myself is top of the list, making sure I’m healthy to make sure I can look after Michael,” she said. The Heroes in the Home nominees will be honoured during one of three special award ceremonies in Ottawa (Nov. 27), Cornwall (Nov. 28), and Pembroke (Nov. 29).
