News - There’s less than three months until winter officially arrives, but the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) officials may have already gift-wrapped one Christmas-like gift. Four-laning of Highway 417 through McNab-Braeside will likely happen sooner than expected. For the second straight year, MTO staff from the regional headquarters in Kingston travelled to address Renfrew County council and senior staff about

past and future activities within the provincial highway network. Unlike a year ago, county councillors left this year’s presentation a lot happier. A year ago, Highway 417 expansion past Arnprior wasn’t on the five-year plan. Now it is, with construction on the next leg scheduled to begin in earnest next spring. And a year ago, there was talk about improved winter maintenance on the accidentriddled Highway 17, but now there’s evidence that it will happen.

News - The area’s physician recruitment drive has reached a new urgency. Jay Johnston, chair of Arnprior Regional Health’s board of directors, updated McNab-Braeside council on the physician recruitment drive. “You can’t grow a community

News – Arnprior was in the running for a medicinal marijuana growing and distribution centre, but it appears it will be located in the former Hershey plant in Smiths Falls. Arnprior CAO Michael Wildman said he had informal discussions with representatives of a company interested in setting up a medical marijuana plant in Arnprior.

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE PETER CLARK/METROLAND

Council opts to park decision on offer Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

News – Arnprior council will likely convert a small residential property to parkland if the current owners don’t insist on certain conditions. A home at 4 Russell St. South and William Street was razed in a fire last May. The family of the late Ron and Marion Smith have since had difficulty selling the property, in part because it measures just 1,220 sq. ft. Complicating matters is the six-foot strip of land within the borders that is owned by James Patrick McCabe who, along with surviving relatives, can’t be located. The Smiths have long paid taxes on the smaller parcel. Owned by the Smiths for almost 50 years, the family offered to donate it to the town to be used as a small park with some sort of recognition such as a small plaque on a bench to the parents for the gesture. The deal would also save the family the aggravation and legal costs. Town staff at the Sept. 23 council meeting recommended accepting the donation.

Rezoning need likely reason Arnprior not chosen

“The director of recreation has confirmed that these lands can be integrated into the park system and maintained in accordance with the standard operating practices of the department,” planner Robin Smith wrote in her report. “The lands can be added to over time with park bench and playground equipment as appropriate.” The town’s official plan encourages outdoor recreational uses in organized parks, she added. Coun. Dan Lynch said the park bench could overlook the future trail where rail tracks once stretched alongside William Street. Reeve Walter Stack said he worried a precedent would be set, and that the town would have cover maintenance costs such as cutting the grass. He noted the outdoor basketball court was nearby. However, his primary concern had to do with selling the property. He wanted to make sure the town wouldn’t be prevented from selling the property if a buyer came along. Mayor David Reid agreed; if a covenant

However, when they found out the couple of sites they had in mind would need rezoning, which comes with a public hearing process and could be subject to an appeal, they shied away, he said. Wildman said he isn’t sure if the officials were representing ICON International, the company propos-

Double plow addition impresses county Continued from front

That was driven home by a special tow plow that was brought to County council for county officials to view during their Sept. 15 meeting. The $80,000 addition to a normal plow unit will allow a highway maintenance driver to clean two lanes simultaneously. For Tammy Stewart, reeve of Head, Clara and Maria at the county’s north end, it is good news, since it means sections of the highway where there are passing lanes will be cleaned faster. She’s also happy to hear that plow units will be housed closer to the heart of the municipality, in MTO’s Stonecliffe garage, instead of farther away in Point Alexander. And she’s happy hearing there will be around-the-clock patrols to monitor road conditions. Walter Stack, the reeve of Arnprior and chairman of the county’s operations committee, was also pleased with the good news from the MTO. “I thought it was great. I was very, very pleased,” said Stack about the MTO officials’ presentation that included contributions from the OPP. Maybe four-laning exten-

sion of Highway 417 as far as Renfrew will come a lot sooner than he had anticipated, he noted. A year ago, Stack was wondering if it would happen in his lifetime. There’s no commitment to a construction timeline for phase three, which covers a 17.2-kilometre stretch between Scheel Drive and the Philip Shrive Bridge across the Bonnechere River just outside Renfrew. But MTO officials say negotiations for property acquisition, to enable highway widening, are well underway. Also, a year ago, phase two of the Highway 417 work, from Division Street to Scheel Drive, was on hold. But lobbying by Renfrew County officials and an improved relationship has helped put that 5.3-kilometre stretch of the highway in the province’s five-year plan, with construction scheduled to start in spring 2014. TEAM HIGHWAY 17

The creation of a Team Highway 17 committee to look at ways of improving the county’s accident-riddled and major transportation cor-

ridor may also have helped to improve communication between county and provincial officials, as local politicians continue to lobby for better winter road maintenance, improvements to problem areas on Highway 17 and faster time lines for extending Highway 417 through the county. MTO’s 90-minute presentation talked a lot about Highway 17 or 417, but the ministry’s officials pointed out that investment of $14.7 million in 2013 isn’t exclusively committed to the county’s major highway. Seven Highway 17 improvements for 2013 include the resurfacing of 18.7 kilometres between Bissett Creek and Deux Rivières, signal lights at B Line Road, and shoulder paving and rumble strips near Haley Road. Five improvement projects for highways 41, 60 and 132 include microsurfacing for 4.3 kilometres between Deacon and McMillan Road, microsurfacing of 12.9 kilometres between Golden Lake and Eganville, and culvert replacements from Constant Creek to County Road 5 (near Calabogie). Five future Highway 17 projects, said MTO officials,

STOP URGENT WASTING YOUR NOTICE MONEY! IF:

include Indian River and Muskrat River bridge rehabilitation, while four projects away from Highway 17 include culvert replacements and pavement rehab from Highway 60 to 17, and replacement and realignment of the Constant Creek Bridge in Greater Madawaska. Following meetings of Team Highway 17 - whose members include the MTO, the OPP and county officials - the MTO says next steps include the tendering for phase two of Highway 417, with bush clearing this fall and construction in the spring of 2014, and continued property acquisition for phases three and four of Highway 417. SAFE-DRIVING CAMPAIGN

In addition to discussion about plans for winter maintenance of Renfrew County roads, MTO also reminded county officials of the Oct. 10 winter maintenance open house in Kanata, where there will be presentations on road salt management, new technology, road weather information systems and winter contracts. See SAFE Page 5

STEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND

Road maintenance on Highway 17 is scheduled for improvements this winter. It will include use of this kind of tow plow, or double plow that allows a second lane to be cleared simultaneously. This unit was driven to the Sept. 25 county council meeting for viewing. Standing between the same unit’s main and two plows, from left, are Kathryn Moore, the regional director of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation; Bill McLatchie, general manager of High End Maintenance, which will be doing 2013-14 winter maintenance on Highway 17; and Renfrew County operations committee chairman Walter Stack of Arnprior.

Safe driving campaign focuses on wildlife Continued from Page 4

Presenters at the Sept. 25 meeting of county council included Colin Slight, the Renfrew OPP detachment commander, and JosĂŠe Bessette, MTO’s regional road user safety ofďŹ cer for the Ontario Ministry of Transportation. They talked about MTO’s winter and wildlife campaigns, held in conjunction with the Renfrew, Upper Ottawa and Killaloe detachments, run last year and to be continued this coming season. Last year’s safe winter driving campaign featured six-week advertising campaigns on four radio stations and four newspapers in Renfrew, Arnprior, Eganville and Pembroke, and the distribution of note pads and book marks with safe-driving notations through the OPP detachments. There will also be top-10-tips videos available on MTO’s website www.MTO.on.gov.ca via the Youtube link. Other video topics will look at winter tires and winter driving. This year’s safe-driving campaign has a focus on wildlife collisions. The campaign includes deer-crossing signs and others signs pun-fully headlined Speeding Costs You Deerly. The campaign is in response to the high rate of wildlife-related collisions, since they make up 40 to 60 per cent of vehicle collisions in the three area OPP detachments. For the Renfrew detachment in 2011 and 2012, there were 157 and 100 wildlife collisions respectively and more

News - The annual Ontario-wide natural homes selfguided tour will be held this Sunday Oct. 6.

Renfrew OPP Staff-Sgt. Colin Slight, and JosĂŠe Bessette, regional road user safety officer for the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, addressed county council about their road safety education programming. in Killaloe and Upper Ottawa Valley. POSITIVE FEEDBACK

Dave Darch, Renfrew County’s director of public works, said he was pleased with the MTO’s delegation. “I’ve said it to both our elected ofďŹ cials and ministry staff: I hope this becomes an annual event, because there’s a lot of pro-active activities that take place in the span of 12 months. “It was a long delegation, but I watched the intensity of the elected ofďŹ cials’ questions and you

can tell that what the ministry is doing touches on almost every municipality, not just the county.� MTO’s regional director Kathryn Moore said it was a great opportunity for various players, including maintenance contract and ministry staff, to put faces to the names and work being done by MTO in the county, and to talk about past and future work. “It certainly shows us that we have lots of work to continue to do and lots of collaboration we want to continue to do with our municipal partners and the police.�

Are these stolen items yours? News - Killaloe and Upper Ottawa Valley OPP officers have made arrests recently in connection to numerous break-ins and thefts throughout Renfrew County and beyond. Police are currently asking the assistance of the public to identify property that was recovered during the investigation. If you were a victim and reported a break and enter or a theft, you are asked to attend an OPP Detachment (Arnprior in this area) during business hours, (Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or call to make an appointment after hours to view a photo book of unidentified recovered property. The recovered items do not include any type of motorized vehicles or equipment. Meanwhile, Renfrew OPP reports officers responded on Sept. 16 to a report of a stolen

truck and boat from a home in Arnprior. The victim advised they had a suspect. The truck and boat were returned a short time later and a 23-year-old Arnprior man was arrested. He was charged with taking a motor vehicle without owner’s consent, uttering a threat, two counts of breach of probation and driving while under suspension. He was held in custody for a bail hearing Sept. 17, where he was remanded into custody until Sept. 20. OPP Constable Walid Kandar led the investigation. COCAINE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL

New ways needed to attract doctors, M-B council told Continued from front

“New physicians want to practice in a group - old ones were cradle to grave,� said Johnston. “At this time, we’re short about three (doctors). Finding doctors is not the easiest thing in the world. We have come to the conclusion we better get three doctors in a hurry.� The imminent departure of Dr. Nguyen Trang has exacerbated the situation. Her practice consists of about 1,200 patients. Arnprior’s family health team has close to 1,300 people seeking a family doctor. That number was 700 four months ago, said Johnston. “Many residents just use the emergency room for care that could be rostered,� said Johnston. In some communities, companies have hired doctors to support and care for their employees. “It’s a pretty competitive world,� said Johnston. Arnprior and area needs to step up its efforts in recruiting new physicians, he explained. The Town of Renfrew and its surrounding townships, for example, have in recent years attracted seven new doctors. “Renfrew offers $25,000 a year over

and above what physicians are making for every year they’re in Renfrew,� said Johnston. Almonte has welcomed one new doctor, Kemptville four and Carleton Place three while Arnprior and area has not been able to secure any new physicians. INCENTIVES OFFERED

What others communities are doing include offsetting current debt or planned housing accommodation, advances on guaranteed income, rent subsidies, medical school scholarships, and signing bonuses during school or upon relocation. Key success factors of a recruitment drive include financial incentives offered to doctors during school and advances upon start of practice. Turnkey operations, including office space, staffing and information technology make an area more appealing to a doctor looking to set up practice. Positive locum and residency experiences make a big difference also, said Johnston. And identification of potential candidates can be facilitated with a recruiter who has linkage to residency programs and physician practice groups.

Fire department reminds residents to ‘prevent kitchen fires’ Cooking is the leading cause of home fires, says the National Fire Protection Association News – It’s time again for Fire Prevention Week and from Oct. 6-12 the Arnprior Fire Department is reminding local residents to ‘prevent kitchen fires’. During this year’s fire safety campaign, fire departments will be spreading the word about the dangers of kitchen fires - most of which result from unattended cooking - and teaching people how to prevent them from starting in the first place. According to the latest statistics from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), cooking is the leading cause of home fires. Two of every five home fires begin in the kitchen - more than any other place in the home. Cooking fires are also the leading cause of home fire-related injuries.

“Often when we’re called to a fire that started in the kitchen, the residents tell us that they only left the kitchen for a few minutes,” said Arnprior fire prevention/protection officer Cory Nicholas. “Sadly, that’s all it takes for a dangerous fire to start. We hope that Fire Prevention Week will help us reach people in the community before they’ve suffered a damaging lesson.” TIPS

Among the safety tips that firefighters and safety advocates will be emphasizing: • stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, broiling, or boiling food; • if you must leave the room, even

for a short period of time, turn off the stove; • when you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, stay in the home, and use a timer to remind you; • if you have young children, use the stove’s back burners whenever

can burn away from your stovetop; • clean up food and grease from burners and stovetops. Fire Prevention Week is actively supported by fire departments across the country and is the longest running public health and safety observance on record.

Speak up, protect our children

I

t’s not just a Canadian problem, it happens around the world. But we can add a voice against the growing evidence that abuse of children continues to happen, sometimes virtually in front of our very own eyes. Victim-impact statements at last month’s pre-sentencing hearing for Father Daniel Miller emphasized how lives were severely damaged by his abuse, before he pleaded guilty to molesting five boys while working for Roman Catholic parishes of Deep River, Arnprior or Eganville more than 30 years ago. Most of the abuse took place at his mother’s home in Renfrew, but it’s not just church officials incriminated in recent years for abusing children. The abusers include parents, friends, neighbours, relatives, usually someone known to the child. Nor are the forms of abuse limited to rape or various forms of molestation. Abuse includes non-accidental inflicting of physical injury; physical, medical, educational or emotional neglect; and substance abuse. There’s also the issue of sexual abuse or exploitation that stem from engaging in online activities, including chat rooms, texting and other socialnetworks. With the heightened sophistication of the cyber playground, never has society been so alerted to the potential risks of predatorial behaviour. Yet, abuse is all around is, whether sexual or in other forms. Last year alone, the Ontario Association of Chil-

MB council decision to end hockey for seniors To the Editor: Let me be the first person to congratulate and thank the BraesideMcNab council and some people. There are four hockey teams in Arnprior consisting of seniors. We play every week from Tuesday morning to Friday. Because Braeside-McNab council will not get each family to pay approximately $60 a year, these four teams will have to fold ‌ because of the extra $300 a person who does not live in Arnprior per year. Just to let you know, a family in Braeside-McNab with three children playing hockey in Arnprior plus a parent, it would now cost them approximately $2,500 a season. Some of you people used these facilities before you got too old or outof-shape, so why pick on the ones who use the facilities. Again, thanks a million for not being able to see past your nose. M.J.

dren’s Aid Societies received 165,673 referrals about possible abuse and neglect of children and youth. Many of these are related to socio-economic factors, as families struggle with poverty, poor mental health, substance abuse and social isolation, but many instances have little or nothing to do with poverty, as community members take advantage of children who, as expected, are often ill-equipped or unable to defend themselves. Community members need always to be vigilant of the signs of abuse, and to be a voice for the community, by listening to the signals provided by children and by reporting concerns to their local family and children’s service. October, as Child Abuse Prevention Month, is as good a time as any to remind ourselves and others that children need to grow up in a safe family environment. As vigilant defenders of our and others’ children, we can watch for signs of abuse, neglect or family crisis. These include unexplained injuries, fear of a specific adult, difficulty making friends, sudden changes in behaviour and inappropriate sexual behaviour . After all, you don’t need to be sure that a child is being abused to call the Children’s Aid Society and express your concerns. For more about the signs of abuse, visit wwwuseyourownvoice.ca, and help protect Ontario’s children.

Survey says: nothing conclusive on which to base major decisions To the Editor: The McNab-Braeside survey results, since their release, have been summarized something like this: â€œâ€Śthe majority of McNab-Braeside residents do not use the (library) services and did not wish to financially support the escalating costs.â€? (Opting out, Arnprior Chronicle-Guide, Sept. 26). This is incorrect. What is correct is that the majority of survey respondents reported that they do not use the services and do not wish to financially support them. According to “Survey saysâ€? on Sept. 12, 44 per cent of households responded to the survey and of these 61.5 per cent said they do not use or support funding the Arnprior library. What this tells us is that if McNab-Braeside were a village of 100 people, 56 of those people chose not to respond to the survey. Of the 44 peo-

ple who did respond, 27 of them (61.5 per cent) said that they do not use or support the library and 17 said that they did. There is no way for us to make an educated guess regarding what the people who did not respond would have said. Well-designed surveys are able to do this by making sure the people who answer are similar in age, gender, income, etc. to the people they are trying to make a conclusion about. Obviously this is not possible for this type of survey. Thankfully this doesn’t matter because the purpose of this survey was to decide who to bill for library and recreation services and the McNabBraeside council has now decided not to do this. Please let library and recreation funding be the political issue it is, debate it in the next election,

We should be contributing to services To the Editor: I believe it is very unfortunate that the Township of McNab-Braeside has taken such a shortsighted view as to opt out of the agreement with the Town of Arnprior regarding funding of the recreational and library services.

but stop using this flawed survey to inform this debate. We need to see its results as nothing more and nothing less than the fact that at this point in time 27 per cent of households in the township said they did not use or support funding library and 17 per cent said they did. Really that doesn’t tell us much. The only thing we know about the majority of households is that they didn’t want to answer the survey. Let’s stop reporting incorrectly on the survey results as we need a good political debate on this issue and poor evidence masquerading as good data is dangerous.

so close by. As well, we lament the time our young people spend playing video games and not exercising their minds. And yet the excellent resource that is the Arnprior library will now only be available to those who pay the user fee. This means that lower income families may not be able to make use of the library, its programs and all the amazing information contained on its shelves. Surely the people of McNab will revisit this decision and realize that ,ESLIE/SBORNE !RNPRIOR7#   CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING SALES: 3HARON2USSELL    !DRIENNE"ARR    EDITORIAL: -ANAGING%DITOR0ATRICIA,ONERGAN    PATRICIALONERGAN METROLANDCOM NEWS EDITOR: *OHN#ARTER   X JOHNCARTER METROLANDCOM REPORTER/PHOTOGRAPHER: 3HERRY(AAIMA SHERRYHAAIMA METROLANDCOM   X $EREK$UNN DEREKDUNN METROLANDCOM   X

Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: The Kingston Penitentiary, which opened in 1835, closed Sept. 30. Arnprior resident Thomas Charbonneau had these reminiscences prior to its closure. Known to its â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;keepersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and its â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;keptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;KPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, it is at the present time the oldest operating prison on earth. It has seen inmates both women and children and, of course, mainly men that up to the mid-1970s were admitted to the penitentiary as young as 16. One young inmate named Paul Charbonneau, no relation to me, was paddled in the notorious disassociation wing for the internal offence of talking and giggling when he should not have. After all, this prison was erected on the Quaker philosophy that inmates needed to be alone and serve penitence in self-reflection that, hopefully, would lead them to reformation. Hence, penitentiary means penitence! Charbonneau was only 12 years of age and was doing what normal 12-year-olds do. They talk incessantly and giggle, etc. This is but one story amongst literally thousands that the jail has witnessed in its long history. I know this place, and others I have served in like â&#x20AC;&#x153;the back of my hand.â&#x20AC;? One had to know about its nooks and crannies because the very nature of working in them meant the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;keepersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; were constantly trying to keep a step ahead of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;keptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;keptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; had nothing but a lot of time to try and outwit those of us who were their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;keepers.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Much of the time, regardless of our experience and hindsight, it was the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;keptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; who determined how the prison would â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hold togetherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. We developed our own intelligence networks within and outside of the walls and it was a constant â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;chess game.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It still is today, and will continue to be thusly so in every facility that calls itself a jail, prison or by any other name within correctional environs regardless of where you find them. I was a municipal police constable in Victoria, B.C. when I decided to opt for a career in what was then the Canadian Penitentiary Service. I was sent to Kingston for what would be a two-year stint. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where I would be placed, because in 1970 Kingston had seven correctional facilities. But I soon found out I would be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cutting my teethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the grandfather of them all: Kingston Penitentiary. I was a bit apprehensive as I arrived there on a Monday morning. The big pedestrian oak gate opened after the guard on the inside â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;looked me over.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; They knew I was arriving and with an escorting officer in tow, he explained I was reporting for duty. The senior officer at the gate was a brusque looking individual with a deep intimidating voice. After looking over my papers, the only advice he offered was for me to keep in mind â&#x20AC;&#x153;an act of kindness is an act of weakness.â&#x20AC;? While I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that to be true, he did! I was taken to the quartermaster stores, fitted out in my kit and then taken to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Keeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; where I met the Chief Keeper and some of his cohorts. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was the nerve centre of the institution and from there one went through a barrier into the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;domeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there very long. My uniforms were being tailored and since I was initially billeted at the Correction Staff College on what was known as the Calderwood Estate, I was advised that my kit would be delivered there later in the day. I was to commence my correctional career â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cold turkey,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; i.e. no initial training at the college. It would be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;on-the-job trainingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and it was to commence at midnight. I was posted to what was called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;black relief.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I moved around to a number of posts armed and unarmed, spent time in the main

Lifestyle - Many readers have reported a paucity of squirrels this summer. Gray Squirrels (both black and gray colour phases), Red Squirrels and Eastern Chipmunks have been scarce, and I have been asked more than once what is behind their disappearance. It is highly likely that last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought is behind this phenomenon, which also includes mice and vole populations. During that insufferable heat wave, which turned the landscape brown and denuded many plants of their leaves, very few trees produced seeds, and berries were in low production. None of our squirrels hibernate, and so depend on stored food for winter survival. Chipmunks sleep more than their cousins do, but still they create large underground larders from which they extract seeds every few days. Red Squirrels stash massive caches of spruce and pine cones in the ground, and then during the winter dig them up to extract their seeds. Gray Squirrels bury acorns and other large nuts all through their territory for winter consumption. White-footed Mice stash piles

MICHAEL RUNTZ

Chipmunks are one of many animals that will benefit from this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge crops of Chokecherries and other plants. of small seeds that sustain them through the season of cold. But last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought resulted in a near failure of all wild foods. As a result, I suspect many rodents failed to survive winter. Those that did may have been in too poor condition to reproduce. As a result, the numbers of small mammals in our region crashed. Another drought-related factor might have affected chipmunk and Red Squirrel numbers. The scorching heat and browning of leaves resulted in a paucity of caterpillars. Undoubt-

edly that had an effect on songbirds, which depend largely on insects to feed their young. In addition to a lack of food, heat stress may have killed many nestlings. Red Squirrels and chipmunks eat a lot of baby birds. This lack of protein may also have affected their survival. But what about the approaching winter and new year? Will familiar rodents vanish completely? I suspect not, and in fact predict that we will see a rapid rise in their numbers. Most fruitand seed-bearing plants had

bumper (mast) crops this summer. Chokecherries bent over due to the weight of their fruit and Mountain-ashes, Wild Raisins, and Winterberries are currently laden with fruit. Spruces are brown with mature cones. Many small mammals and wintering birds should do very well this winter, and produce large numbers of young next spring. In turn, the animals that feed on small mammals will also benefit, and their numbers should rise over the next year or two. While the drought had a devastating effect on many living things, the plunge in small animal numbers is actually a regular event. Nature is never in balance, and many species going through a boom-and-bust cycle over the years. This is actually good for plants for if their seed predators were present in the high numbers every year, few if any of their seeds would escape and germinate. When large seed crops are produced when small animal numbers are at a population low, new plants spring up everywhere. That is simply Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way!

Arnprior Regional Health Auxiliary president Doreen Nicholas presents $100,000 to Arnprior Regional Health to go toward the buying of a McKesson PacMed automated pharmacy dispensing system. From left are auxiliary treasurer Deborah Clark, Nicholas, Arnprior Regional Health pharmacy technician Mary Ann Christmas and Arnprior Regional Health CEO Eric Hanna.

New ARH pharmacy system improves safety News – Thanks in part to the generosity of the Arnprior Regional Health Auxiliary, Arnprior area patients will benefit from a new McKesson PacMed automated pharmacy dispensing system. The system automatically packages prescription drugs in individual doses, labelled with the patient’s name, the medication particulars, and the day and time each medication needs to be taken. This significant upgrade improves patient safety by reducing the opportunity for error. The auxiliary has contributed $100,000 towards the purchase of the system. The new Pharmacy department will be designed to accommodate implementation of

unit-dose drug distribution. The move will also bring the pharmacy department much closer physically to the Inpatient Unit and the ER, which are the hospital’s two busiest service areas, explained Pharmacy manager Anne Reich. The Pharmacy will relocate to the second floor of the main hospital, directly above the inpatient unit. Unit-dosing shifts the effort and distraction of medication processing, with its potential for harm, from the nursing ward to central pharmacy. It increases the amount of time nurses have to do other tasks. Medication arrives to the hospital in individually wrapped packages for each patient.

Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleased with the anniversary and happier still to know sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been assisting individuals with cancer since she helped found the group in 1996. The dinner runs from 4-7 p.m. at St. John Chrysostom Hall in Arnprior. Cost for the roast beef and turkey buffet is a goodwill donation. More than 100 volunteers are working to get things ready for the event, which last year served more than 800 people. The breast cancer support group meets every third Tues-

day of the month at the Arnprior Public Library from 7-9 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all confidential,â&#x20AC;? said Watt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there to let them express their feelings and talk with them no matter where they are on their journey.â&#x20AC;? The groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around for some time now and that unfortunately means theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to say goodbye to members. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the last few years we have lost some of our girls and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough,â&#x20AC;? said Watt.

Arnprior Packers win two out of three Sean Marcellus

Sports - It is still early in the season, but the young Arnprior Packers are right in the mix of things in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Valley Division, earning victories over the Metcalfe Jets and Shawville Pontiacs last week and taking Valley Division leader Ottawa West to the limit Sunday. Arnprior defeated Metcalfe 5-2, nipped Shawville 2-1 and fell 6-5 to the powerful Golden Knights, who have won five of their first six games. To start off the week, the Packers defeated the Jets 5-2 in road game action in Osgoode last Wednesday evening. Off-season acquisition and Packers Player of the Week Damian Armstrong paced the club with two goals while Erik Miksik made 30 saves in the victory. Other Packers goals were scored by Arnprior native Michael McGrath, as well as defenseman Brian Taylor and newly acquired forward Nick Wysman. The Packers exploded for three goals in less than two minutes midway through the third period to break a 2-2 tie. Last Friday night the Packers hosted the Pontiacs, winning the lowscoring affair 2-1. Goaltender Erik Miksik made 35 saves for the victory, while Armstrong and Arnprior’s Patrick McGrath, Michael’s twin brother, each scored goals for the home club. On Sunday afternoon Arnprior never quit despite being in tough against the high-scoring Ottawa West Golden Knights. The Packers trailed by scores of 4-1, 5-2, and 6-3, but showed plenty of character by climbing back into the game before losing by a close 6-5 score. Young back-up goalie Brett Hahn got the start for the Packers but was chased from the net and replaced by Miksik early in the second period with Arnprior down 4-1. A couple of defensive zone breakdowns did not

The Packers were again led by Armstrong who picked up a goal and an assist. Marc Shanks chipped in with two assists and 16-yearold Braeside native Isaac Perreault scored his first EOJHL goal and added an assist. Other Packers goals came from Chris Marchand who scored his first of the year, captain John McLean who notched his third, and Braeside local player Corey Chaplin who earned his first of the season. The Packers are next on the ice this Friday, Oct. 4 at the Nick Smith Centre where they host the Metcalfe Jets at 8 p.m. The Packers travel to Stittsville Sunday for a 2:30 p.m. game, which could be an early season first-place showdown. The two wins boosted the Packers

into a second-place tie with Renfrew in the Valley Division, two points behind the Stittsville Royals. Stittsville has eight points, Arnprior and Renfrew six apiece, Shawville and Perth four each and Almonte three points. The division tightened up on the weekend with Renfrew losing 5-2 to Stittsville and 8-2 to Metcalfe, Shawville edged Stittsville 6-5, and Perth won its second straight after starting the season 0-3 by beating Clarence Creek 5-2. Armstrong is tied for fourth in Valley Division scoring with four goals and two assists in five games. Former Packers Derrin Lehoux and Ethan Allard are in the thick of the early season scoring race, each having eight points for Ottawa West. Marchand, who scored his first goal as a Packer Sunday, came from the Ottawa Junior Canadians in a trade last week. Ottawa sent a 16-year-old player card for the 2013-2014 season and the playing rights to Marchand to the Packers to complete the future considerations in the Casey Doner trade. In a multi-faceted deal, the Packers send Teddy Suckow to Renfrew for former Packer Doner, who then went to the Junior Canadians for future considerations with the proviso he not be moved to any other team except the Packers in any future deals. The Packers picked up Wysman, who scored against Metcalfe, from Ottawa West for a player to be named later. Arnprior had earlier sent Allard to Ottawa West for a player to be named later. The Packers also traded the rights of Christopher Ewebank to the Westport Rideaus to finalize deals made last season. With files from John Carter

The Birds and the Beast The Carleton Ravens and York Lions clashed in Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) women’s hockey preseason action at the Nick Smith Centre Saturday afternoon. Ravens goaltender Tamber Tisdale peers through a crowd to get a better look at the puck in the first-period. Carleton’s Ellyn McCormick (14), at right, later scored the game’s first goal for the Ravens. Carleton won the match-up 3-1. A second game featured Grant MacEwen University of Edmonton taking on Laurentian. The Sudbury school won 6-3. The games are the latest of many special events planned for the Nick Smith Centre this season. This weekend the Ottawa Valley Aces host a showcase in Arnprior.

Ultimate Fitness lifters who work out of Arnprior or Renfrew locations held their own at the recent Ottawa Open. At the summer event, Leicy-Ann Ditmar of Renfrew placed second in the 52-kg. class with a total of 207 kilograms, after squatting 67.5, benchpressing 47.5 and deadlifting 92.5 kilograms. Ottawa resident Jayne Egan, who also trains with Ultimate Fitness, won the same class with a 282.5 total that included a squat of 92.5 kilograms. In the 57-kilogram class, it was a 1-2 finish for mother Karen Maxwell and daughter Kinsey of Renfrew with respective totals of 220 and 205 kg. Other winners from Ultimate Fitness included Shelby Postma of Arnprior with a 280 total in the 63-kilogram class and internationalist Sarah Leighton of Renfrew in the 72-kg division.

Arnprior edged in Gordon Cup playoff

Curling on the links

Next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition to be hosted by Arnprior Golf Club

Despite Debby Mossman, Judy Algiers and Lorna Watkins holding golf clubs, they were actually attending the first event of the season for the Arnprior Curling Club, a fundraiser at Mountain Creek. This year will be a busy one as it is the 145th anniversary of the club. Registration is being held this week with the final of three days set for this evening (Thursday) at 6:30 p.m. at the club at 15 Galvin St. JOHN WAHAY/SUBMITTED

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Arnprior came agonizingly close to winning its fourth straight Gordon Cup on the Labour Day weekend. The Arnprior Golf Club team finished in a tie with Pembroke at the end of two days of regular play Sept. 1, but lost to the host team in a playoff. Pembroke had been the last non-Arnprior team to win, capturing the trophy at home in 2009. Arnprior gets to try to win back the prestigious trophy next year when it hosts the 85th Gordon Cup competition during the golf clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 90th anniversary year. In this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition, Arnprior and Pembroke tied with 1,866 points apiece at the end of the regulated 18 holes. Arnprior made a huge comeback from 15 strokes down starting play in day two. Pembrokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily totals were 913-953 and Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 928-938. The playoff consisted of a two-on-two sudden-death competition. Todd Hermitte and Mark Swansburg took to the extra hole for Pembroke while Arnprior countered with Allen McGee and Kevin Mulvihill. Swansburg and McGee parred, while Mulvi-

hill suffered a bogie five. That left it up to Hermitte, who drained a putt of about six feet to save par and earn Pembroke the championship. McGee, fresh off his seventh straight Ottawa Valley Golf Association menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A class championship, led Arnprior with an impressive fiveunder-par 137 after rounds of 70 and 67. Former Renfrew club champion Dwight Reinhart (69-75) and Stephen Dowd (74-70) registered 144s for Arnprior. Mississippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team was third with 1,981, followed closely by Deep River at 1,983. Once mighty Renfrew was last for the second year in a row, scoring 2,037. The teams, made up of 14 players each, played two rounds of 18 holes each. The 12 low gross scores were used to tabulate team scores. The Gordon Cup began when J.P. Gordon of Renfrew donated a prestigious piece of hardware for Ottawa Valley golf supremacy in 1930. The idea was to foster competition and fellowship among the golfers from across the Upper Ottawa Valley.

Future of local health care a team effort Arnprior and District Family Health Team officially opens new offices on hospital’s second floor Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

News – The Arnprior and District Family Health Team is securely in place and ready for patients to step up to the plate for services. The success of the team rests now on the public using the services and in some cases their ability to alter their thinking when it comes to health care, say officials. At a grand opening of the renovated centre on the second floor of the Arnprior hospital Sept. 25, health team board chair Harold Camblin emphasized the significance of the event. “Today’s official opening is more than just the cutting of a ribbon on a new medical centre; it’s also highly symbolic of a new approach to primary health care in our community,” said Camblin. The team offers health professionals all on one floor and in a specifically designed space. Staff will work together to deliver health care for episodic illnesses, chronic disease management, and health promotion and disease prevention. The newly renovated space removes physical barriers to high quality health care, but there’s more to it than that, said Camblin. “Other impediments remain, as they always do when change is afoot. Impediments

Health professionals and services include cancer screening, smoking cessation, dietitian healthy weight, social work mental health, psychologist mental health, healthy child, pharmacist and respiratory therapy. He encouraged patients, physicians and government to

co-operate in the process. Patients should accept that their doctor is not the only one who can attend to health needs, he said. Health team staff members might be more appropriate in certain circumstances. “Please don’t always insist that you must see your doc. There is an alternative,” said Camblin. Physicians should continue to refer patients to the health team and make the public aware of the centre and its services, said Camblin. He had a message for government, as well. “Finally, if you are government, please eliminate the

inherent structural issues that currently obstruct integration, partnerships and resource allocation,” he said. He expressed thanks to many, including physicians, Arnprior Regional Health, ARH CEO Eric Hanna and his management team, health care team staff, M.P. Lundy Construction, and Erskine Dredge and Associates Architects. He credited the health team’s executive director Maureen Sullivan-Bentz, administrative assistant Colleen Desarmia and Dr. Aya Suzuki for their hard work. Guests included physicians, staff and area politicians, in-

Eli El-Chantiry. Reid congratulated the health team. “It’s a beautiful facility,” said Reid. “I think it’s a real asset to the town of Arnprior and area.” The 13 physicians and seven or eight health professionals working together make it truly a team effort, he said. Campbell thanked all who worked so hard to make it happen. “For generations we’ve all jealously guarded our rela-

tionship with ‘our doctor,’” said Campbell, who noted the opening was a momentous occasion in the community. “We’re about to move into the future where we now have my health team,” she said. “We now have more relationships, more services, to take advantage of.” El-Chantiry said with 25 per cent of the hospital’s patients coming from West Carleton, the resource is a valuable one for his ward. “You’ve been a partner all along,” said El-Chantiry. “We look forward to continuing that relationship of community.”

An anonymous donation has made it possible for the Arnprior Dragon Boat Club to put a head and tail on its Dragon Boat. Dragginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Behinds Dragon Boat team are a passionate group of individuals who are fully committed to developing the sport of Dragon boating within our community at large. From my own observation, everything appears to be about teamwork and you guys seem to inspire community spirit and a real sense of giving back, especially in your fundraising events.

And, what pleases me the most is that all of your practices are so well attended with absolutely no cancellations that I have heard of, even despite the weather in some cases. In addition, your leadership is so strong and so very positive. So, as a result, I believe that no Dragon Boat should be without a head and tail and my contribution is for you and the Arnprior community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a

good and progressive community is built on generating team spirit, strong friendships, and a real sense of caring for others. The Arnprior Dragon Boat Club are a good example of family and community spirit overall.

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; No team sport can achieve overall success and sustainability without the help of friends and family, volunteers, community participation, and, yes, even anonymous donorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and gift-givers. And, periodically it actually happens, a ďŹ nancial contribution out-of-the-blue. And, why does it happen? For all kinds of reasons I guess. In our case, the Arnprior Dragon Boat Club received an anonymous donation of $1,000 for the purchase of a Dragon Boat head and tail for our new boat Ottawaska recently purchased only this year. Why us? Interesting, indeed. The donor, who wishes to remain anonymous expressed herself in the following way. The Arnprior Dragon Boat Club and the

Did you knowâ&#x20AC;Ś the group became independent in 1999, but still keep close ties with the Arnprior Legion and enjoy a grandfather clause that covers the Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Did you know a group of senior members use of the legion facilities. There have been a lot of fun bus trips over the years, of the Arnprior Legion started a seniors group in 1983? Did you know quite a number of those same people are a lot of great entertainment including much by our own members, lots of laughs, and, of course, more tears than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like, when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost dear friends and members.

Hot dinner is available and prepared by the legion volunteers served around 4 p.m. This is a nice treat and monthly dinner out. We are very fortunate in Arnprior to have many things for the seniors in this community to keep busy that allows them to keep in touch with old and new friends. There are always outings or luncheons for seniors with several different organization and we are pleased that they support and enjoy the Golden Valley Seniors each month and take part in the trips and entertainment they organize.

W, ARNPRIOR Good management over the years has produced a solid bank account and as the membership â&#x20AC;&#x153;maturesâ&#x20AC;? and the ambition for fundraising wanes slightly, the legion is fortunate enough to be able to subsidize some events and trips. A special celebration dinner is planned for the Oct. 23 meeting to celebrate an astonishing 30 years of good times and memories. All members, life members and honourary members are invited to attend. Bring stories, pictures and books. Prepare for laughs, friends, music, good food and a good time for everyone. As always we will have some good entertainment. One of our favourites, Simon , will be there. October is not an open meeting and you must be registered by Oct. 15. There is a maximum number that can be accommodated. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve not been joining us at our meetings for the last while, get in touch and let us know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to attend the Golden Valley Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 30th anniversary celebration.

And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual for Central to interrupt your call to tell you some important bit of news, or to say someone else was trying to get the phone, and would you please hurry it up and free up the line! It was different when Mr. Briscoe was answering a call. With him it was all business, no time for idle chatter with Mr. Briscoe! Mother always felt safer once we had the phone put in on the farm. Some of the isolation she felt when she first moved to Northcote was gone. It was my sister Audrey who noticed it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not exactly like New York,â&#x20AC;? Audrey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But for Mother it beats not being able to talk to another soul without getting out the horse and buggy or the old Model T.â&#x20AC;? Yes indeed. The new phone made a world of difference to our lives on the farm. And â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Centralâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, I thought back then, was just about the most important person in Northcote. She was that vital link between isolation and connection with a neighbour.

And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual to have your complete conversation repeated the next day at the General Store! It also wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual to pick up the receiver and ask Central if she knew where Mrs. Hines was ... her advice was needed. And Central always knew where everyone was. Sometimes when Mother rang a neighbour, Central would come on and say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone into Renfrew to Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ... she needed some lace trim for a blouse sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making. She should be back in a couple hours ... do you want me to ring you when she gets home?â&#x20AC;? Central was the lifeblood of the entire neighbourhood. If there was a fire, or any other emergency, somehow Central was able to ring all the farms at the same time, at least that seemed to be the case. Because everyone responded in jig time to give a helping hand where needed Of course you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need Central if you knew the ring of the person you were calling.

I never thought much about it before Uncle Lou, with his usual feeling of compassion for Mother, installed our first telephone out on the farm in Northcote.

DYING FOR DIGNITY

Connected to your community

Beyond the bedside Local end-of-life experts help launch the province’s first integrated palliative program – and build a case for better funding

and creating a standardized approach for how care is delivered will go a long way, Abedi said. Part of the challenge is bringing the entire range of palliative-care providers into the fold and adopting a common mindset. Instead of reactive, symptom-focused care delivered by several different providers who don’t necessarily communicate with each other, the regional program looks to bring all providers on board with a more holistic approach. Providing continuity of care throughout the course of a patient’s illness is the goal. But achieving it means unraveling a complex web of family physicians, emergency-room doctors, oncologists, homecare providers, day hospice programs and more. Something as straightforward as creating an electronic record of treatments that’s shared amongst a patient’s entire health-care team is a nut that can take months to crack, Abedi said. Step one was creating a clearing house for processing applications for palliative care. There are now two nurses working out of Bruyère Continuing Care who use their expertise in palliative care to assess a standard intake form and place patients on a waiting list for the type of care that best suits their needs. That’s one major step towards a truly integrated system, said Lynn Kachuik, an Ottawa Hospital nurse who is an expert in palliative care and sits on the regional program’s council. “By going to the (centralized) system we are able to simplify the access … So they’ve got the data they need to make a decision based on what the needs of the patient are,” she said. “We’ve been much more efficient in using the beds effectively.”

METROLAND EAST SPECIAL REPORT

T

here’s an elephant in the room and it’s crowding Ottawa’s hospitals. Too many people are dying in hospital because they haven’t had honest discussions about death, according to palliative care doctor José Pereira. These conversations – a patient’s preferred place to die, the level of treatment and their concept of comfort – must start long before a person is weeks away from death, he said. “If we only think about palliative care from the last days or weeks of life, many people are going to suffer unnecessarily for the time they have left,” he said. For one Ottawa woman, who Pereira didn’t name for privacy reasons, this lack of planning led to confusion for both her and her family. Just a few months before she died her doctors at Bruyère Continuing Care still didn’t consider the woman a palliative patient. As her health failed, she was receiving treatments she likely didn’t need any more. “This was a lady who had been struggling with end-stage heart disease, very, very advanced heart disease for many years. And suddenly in the last few months (she was) admitted to a hospital, and put on all sorts of treatments,” Pereira said. She started a regime of antibiotics, and was put on dialysis for kidney failure. She began to question the benefit of being hooked up to machines this late in her illness, Pereira said. “She was saying, ‘I know I’m dying ... my goal is to be as comfortable as possible.’” A quick look at her chart was telling: scrawled in a colleague’s note, the words “the patient is not yet palliative.” COHESIVE CARE

Pereira’s colleague wasn’t being oblivious; there are hundreds of health-care professionals across the city and province who share the same view that palliative care is only relevant in the last few weeks of life. “Health professionals in general haven’t received much education in this area,” said Pereira, a doctor at Bruyère Continuing Care and the Ottawa Hospital. “We get trained in our different specialties but we haven’t in the past done a good job of training new doc-

Célestin Abedi heads the new Champlain Hospice Palliative Care Program, the first of its kind in Ontario that wants to get all health professionals on the same page when it comes to end of life care. It’s an initiative that aspires to change the way palliative care is delivered – and how it’s funded.

32 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, October 3, 2013

“The issue is not only beds,” Abedi said. “It’s how we can create a more seamless transition for clients from one service provider to another,” Ottawa has a “strategic advantage” in the palliative care field, Abedi said. Some of the national leaders in the field call Ottawa home and the city also benefits from having the Bruyère community, the largest palliative care provider and research body in Canada. Despite a wealth of expertise and resources, access to palliative and

hospice care delivery in Ottawa has been disjointed. “There were a lot of initiatives that different local communities were working on but there wasn’t any kind of connection with what they were doing and what the hospital is doing,” Abedi said. Part of the regional network’s goal is to help patients and caregivers create a palliative care plan that starts long before the patient is in the final days of their life. “(This) is a paradigm shift. The current system – it was somewhat very fragmented and key players were left out,” Abedi said. “What we’ve done (is) to bring everybody together to have a common vision of what should be the right palliative care for the population. “And from there, we’ve made tremendous progress.” It sounds simple, but identifying common, validated tools and training

MAKING THE BEDS

Centralizing the hospice and palliative care system on a larger scale is another goal for regional network. By October, Ottawa will have 19 residential hospice beds run by one umbrella group called Hospice Care Ottawa. The organization is a merger of the Friends of Hospice Ottawa and the Hospice at May Court, which were operating separately until a year ago. The two groups amalgamated to integrate funding and services for the city. Merging Maycourt and the Friends of Hospice was not a painless process, Abedi said, but now the city has one entity that can look at the needs of the entire city. “We cannot allow ourselves to have so many players who are not connected whatsoever,” Abedi said. “We cannot sustain that.” Aligning service providers means existing funding can be used better, said Pereira. Continued on page 33

DYING FOR DIGNITY Continued from page 32

“Sometimes it’s not just about more funding, sometimes it’s about allocating the money we have more appropriately,” Pereira said. “I really think what this project (the hospice merger) shows is that when you bring all the stakeholders together you can reallocate the existing funding in a much better way.” Pereira has witnessed the positive effects of this approach through his work at a residential hospice in Edmonton in 1995. “The research shows that if we do it properly, people have less depression, less anxiety and may in fact even live longer,” he said. Ottawa’s hospice still has a long way to go, said Lisa Sullivan, executive director of Hospice Care Ottawa. “In terms of the size of Ottawa, we know it could benefit with a lot more beds,” Sullivan said. A study from Bruyère Continuing Care in Ottawa suggested the city needs somewhere between 70 to 80 beds for a population of one million, but the regional program has set a goal of 40 beds.

We cannot allow ourselves to have so many players who are not connected whatsoever ... We cannot sustain that. CÉLESTIN ABEDI CHAMPLAIN HOSPICE PALLIATIVE CARE PROGRAM

Currently, the city has nine hospice beds available at May Court and eight beds at the Embassy West Senior Living on Carling Avenue. Two more beds will be added by October. By 2016, the organization plans to build a 10-bed residential hospice in Kanata, followed by 10 beds in the east end and then 10 more beds in the south end, Sullivan said. But the focus on beds isn’t necessarily the most pressing issue, Sullivan said. There is an overwhelming need to boost bereavement and

In Ottawa, the biggest player in residential hospice care needs $1.6 million a year just to keep the lights on. “We need to raise $1.6 million just to operate. No extra bells and whistles,” said Sullivan. “That is our biggest need.” Under the current provincial formula, most residential hospices receive around $246 per bed per day though the Champlain Local Health Integration Network. That covers roughly 40 per cent of their operating budgets. “That money comes with a lot of strings,” Abedi said. It can be used only to cover for nursing staff and personal support workers. Rick Firth, executive director of Hospice Palliative Care Ontario, would like to see that number grow to 80 per cent, but recognizes that funding residential hospice beds is a relatively new practice in Ontario. “It’s easy to say they’re not funding 100 per cent, but you look at 2002 with zero dollars to hospice and then in 2006 there was about $24 million allocated,” Firth said. “And it continues to grow.” Recognizing that a hospice bed costs $439 a day compared to $850 a day for an acute care bed in a hospital, many palliative care experts

argue the province’s money would be more effectively spent on hospice beds to free up hospital beds. In Ottawa, Abedi’s ultimate goal is to convince the LHIN to reverse the funding balance and pay for 60 to 80 per cent of the cost of hospice care. “We are working to collect enough data to advise the LHIN to change that funding formula,” Abedi said. If the province’s goal is to have hospice to play a bigger role within the health care system, Abedi said “it is not correct” to ask hospices to fundraise for 60 per cent of their budgets. On the advice of the hospice palliative regional program in Ottawa, the LHIN is now funding around 65 per cent of nursing costs for the amalgamated local hospice group. Navigating that uncharted territory of making incremental decisions that will build towards a new funding model will fall to Ottawa because it is a leader in the palliative-care field. “When you look at palliative care, we’ve got a lot that other areas don’t have,” said Kachuik, the Ottawa Hospital palliative-care nurse specialist. “I think we’ve taken great strides in developing what I would call an integrated system.” While Ottawa still has work to do, it is a leader compared to other parts of the province, particularly rural areas. The Thunder Bay region has no hospice beds at all, and the South East LHIN, stretching from Belleville to Smiths Falls and north to part of Lanark County, only opened its first three beds this summer. Other regions of Ontario plan to follow Ottawa’s lead by starting their own regional programs for palliative and hospice care. But in the meantime, experts in Ottawa will set the example for a shift in how end-of-life care is delivered.

Rural hospice: ‘there’s a need for sustainable funding’

S

taff at Hospice Renfrew know all too well the limitations of a rural location. The hospice’s six beds run in the small town of Renfrew are the only ones in the county, and they’re almost always filled with patients living out their final days. A registered nurse and a personal support worker are there 24 hours a day, and the hospice also maintains a small administration. About 50 volunteers cover the reception desk, run support programs, plan events, tend the garden and bake homemade snacks for residents. But it’s not enough. Six beds can’t meet demand for an entire county, and there’s a constant list of patients waiting to get a bed, said hospice director Diane Caughey.

Some of them die before the beds become available. But adding more beds isn’t exactly feasible, either. The Ontario government funds less than half of the hospice’s $1 million operating costs, and all of that money goes to nursing care, Caughey said. “There’s a need for sustainable funding that will cover operations,” she said. “There are fundraising challenges in a small rural community.” Fewer people means fewer dollars, and there’s always competition from other fundraising health care facilities in the region. “The challenge is ... how does a community of 5,000 people raise the $1 million a year to support it?” asked Hospice Palliative Care Ontar-

io’s executive director Rick Firth. Renfrew is not alone in this. Rural hospice beds are few and far between. According to Firth, the vast majority of the province’s 231 beds are located in urban areas. Until July, the South East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) covering Belleville, Kingston, Smiths Falls and parts of Lanark County had no hospice beds at all, and the North-West LHIN in the Thunder Bay region still lacks any residential facilities. Part of the problem is that provincial funding for hospices is designated solely for nursing staff – $90,000 per bed - and that base cost is the same no matter how many beds a hospice has. “In the smaller facilities it’s more

of a challenge because the nursing model requires a registered nurse present 24/7,” Firth said. “So in a situation like Renfrew where there’s six beds (instead of the standard 10), you still have the need for an RN 24/7. You can’t split a nurse in two. So proportionately they get less funding per bed.” A six-bed hospice like Renfrew should get $116,000 instead of $90,000, he said. The other problem is geography. To cut costs, several villages or townships will collaborate to cover a region. A day hospice program could be located in one town, Firth said, but residential hospice beds might be in another. This creates an access problem for patients and family members who

must travel long distances to get to the facility they need. The new hospice program inside the South East LHIN hopes to address some of those issues. Instead of building the standard 10-bed model in a centralized, urban location, the beds will be spread around. In July, Hospice Prince Edward opened three beds in Picton and the South East LHIN plans to monitor how they are used before opening the remaining seven beds in several other small groups across the region. Firth said rural access is one of his organization’s biggest priorities moving forward, and it will participate in a ministry-led committee this fall to facilitate rural-focused solutions.

St. John’s Antrim to celebrate 140 years Sixth Festival of Senses Oct. 5, 6 Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Community – The little white church is celebrating a big anniversary. This fall, St. John’s Anglican Church in Antrim marks 140 years in the community and the congregation is marking the milestone with a special church service this Sunday, Oct. 6. The service begins at 10 a.m., followed by a light lunch and fellowship. “Everyone is welcome to join us to share in the celebrations and share their memories. There will be special musical performances by local groups and various displays of church history and past and present members,” said Terry MacHardy of the church’s anniversary committee. Rev. Peggy Kuzmicz leads the congregation and modern-day activities at the church include regular Sunday services and events including the annual turkey suppers that serve about 400 people. This year the event will be held Nov. 17. The church also provides catering services and for the last two years has hosted yard sales that include a barbecue. Community involvement is high on the priority list for the church. Officials are pleased to recount that in recent years, St. John’s won the contest for best

decorated church at Christmas. Among the anniversary projects is a special initiative that will highlight the church’s families. Committee member Joan Wilson said the group is asking families past and present to share their memories and family history at St. John’s Antrim. This is a way for families to honour and celebrate their family members who are on longer with them, explained Wilson “Our wish is to show what the church meant to them and how their dedication was so instrumental in our existence today,” said Wilson in a press release. The plan is to set aside specific Sundays to celebrate each family wishing to participate. Families will be asked to share their family’s experiences as members of the St. John’s family. “We are also asking that family photos be included in the presentations. Our hope is to compile a memory book to include a hard copy of each presentation, along with copies of the family photos. With each family participating we will have a memory book to be proud of and to treasure,” said Wilson. At one time the Anglican community of Antrim worshipped at SS No. 2 Fitzroy School, north of the hamlet. Some parishioners travelled miles on foot to attend services.

A donation of land in the village from John Wilson paved the way for Robert Serson and his brother John to construct the building in 1873. Of note in the church’s history is the 1878 development of a new Baptist church on the Third Line in Fitzroy that drew many of the little white church’s members. A solid core remained and carried on. The church’s stained glass window depicting the good shepherd was funded by ‘talent money’ from the church’s Sunday school. Sunday school superintendent R.C. Sparrow gave each child 20 cent to buys duck, geese and turkey eggs. The birds were hatched, raised and sold by the students to raise funds for the window, which was dedicated in 1893. It was 1902 when the congregations of Antrim and Galetta united to become the Mission of Antrim. Then in 1969 the parishes of St. Mark’s Pakenham and St. George’s Waba were amalgamated with St. Augustine’s Galetta and St. John’s Antrim. In 1992, regular services in Galetta ceased. A service of thanksgiving marked the 100th anniversary in September 1973. In 1980, new floors, foundation and rewiring spruced up the building and volunteer labour kept the costs down.

Community - The sixth annual Festival of the Senses in and around the villages of Burnstown and Calabogie will take place this weekend (Oct. 5 and 6). Once again the event will involve about 20 organizations and businesses. Here are some of the new festival site activities: • A Sense of Antiquity features John Holyer of Ottawa Valley Antiques in Douglas. He has been buying and selling antiques for over 45 years. Holyer will bring his considerable skill to the tables at Calabogie’s Heritage Point, Saturday, Oct. 5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. He will appraise attic treasures for a nominal fee of $5 per item or three items for $10. This will be a perfect opportunity to find out more about some special piece you have kept dusted for years. Please, no jewelry or large pieces of furniture. All other items are welcomed. • A Sense of Caring sponsored by Calabogie Home Support will see a flea market on the lawn in front of the indoor storage building (formally Pinky’s) Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (rain date Sunday, Oct. 6). Tables are available for anyone interested in selling items for $10. The money goes to the Calabogie Home Support and sellers keep their profits. This will be a perfect opportunity to declutter and support a worthwhile organization. To reserve your table, call 613-752-2828. • Sense of Native Journey will include a native drum circle, led by Lanark Drum from Carleton Place. The public is invited to participate, as there are extra drums and rattles available. Learn native songs and their special teachings while gath-

ered around the Medicine Wheel across from Barnet Park, Sunday 2 to 4 p.m. • Sense of Rhythm is a community drum circle. You will find this at Barnet Park on Saturday from 11 a.m. until noon. • Some of the returning sites include local churches who will continue their tradition of light lunches and harvest fare. On Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. St. Andrew’s United Church will have contemporary and traditional gospel music. Most Precious Blood Catholic Church will have harvest pies available on the Sunday, after church. • A Sense of Discovery will highlight one of 15 geocaches in the area. Geocaching is a world-wide, high-tech treasure hunting game played by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors, and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and an interest in supporting the environment. See www.geocaching. com to learn more about the sport. • A Sense of Freshness, the Matawatchan Market is a new site. It runs both days. • In Burnstown, Bittersweet Gallery (Sense of Perspective) will feature Richard Gill’s open house that launches his annual fall show. Called Simple Pleasures, it will feature sculpted clay-reliefs and paintings. The show runs Oct. 4 to 14 from 11 am. to 5 p.m. daily, with the vernissage scheduled for this Friday, Oct. 4 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Adelyn Weiss is proud to announce the birth of her baby brother,

The family of Pearl Elizabeth Rose, who died August 30, 2013 at the Renfrew Victoria Hospital would like to thank the following people who touched our Mother’s and Grandmother’s life. Dr. Strader we would like to thank you for everything you did to ease Mom’s life in the last 14 months. Thanks to the 3rd floor staff at the Renfrew Victoria Hospital, you nurses were amazing and were Moms second family. Roxanne and Chrystal you were more than a friend to Gran. No words could ever express the gratitude and thanks we feel for you all. Also thanks to Peter and Greg for being so kind to mom. To Rev Don Anderson, thank you so much for being there at the end. Thanks for your compassion, your hymn and kind words when we were so lost. To Rev Cheryl McLeod thanks also for your compassion and kind words and the amazing service. All of our family was very impressed. Even though Gran was humble, she would of thought the service was beautiful and befitting. To the Fraser-Morris-Heubner Funeral Home – outstanding. Wayne and Warren you did an amazing job. Your expertise and experience allowed us to say goodbye to our Mother and Gran in such a beautiful and peaceful way. Thank you. To Rev McLelland and the organist and choir of Haley United Church, a big thank you; also you lifted our spirits especially with the singing of that special hymn. To the ladies of the Haley United Church thank you for the beautiful lunch, prayers and kind words. A special love and thank you to Gran’s pallbearers, you took Gran to be with the Lord with grace and love. Her grandsons Joe, Steve, Andrew, Chuck and great grandsons Tyler and Brandon did the honours. The eulogy’s by Alana and Joe were exceptional and the readings by Tammy and Jill were terrific. Gran would have been so proud and thankful. A heartfelt thank you to Uncle Harold, Irene, Steve and Laura for all the things you did and the kindness shown to Mom throughout the years. God Bless Lastly thanks a million to our family and friends. We appreciated the prayers, donations of money, flowers, food, cards and kindness shown to our entire family. To our family, you made this sad time so much easier to let go of Mom by just being there and also your little stories of Gran made it feel like she was still with us in life. May God Bless everyone that touched Mom’s life in anyway.

Jacques, Jospeh (Sonny) Leslie Riopelle September 26, 2009 In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. Missing you so much Wife Marie, Val & Bob, Garnie & Jean, Brendalie & Rolly, Conray, Charlene & Terry, Morgan & Jackie, Jason & Tina and grandchildren
