Raining champion Making his way through the rain to a first-place win in annual Arnprior Optimist Run is Keaton McGrath of Walter Zadow Public School. Finishing a close second in the Grade 5-6 race Monday is Sammy Pianosi of McNab Public School. Nolan McGregor from St. Joseph’s finished third. The run sees students from all area elementary schools participate at the Arnprior District High School track and surrounding Gillis Grove. It’s been a big week for Arnprior sports with high school students excelling (see Pages 25-28).

Residents launch petition against council decision News – A residents group is stepping up its effort to get McNab-Braeside council to relent on its stand cancelling recreation and library service agreements with Arnprior and Renfrew at year’s end. The McNab-Braeside Residents for Reading and Recreation (MBR4RR), which describes itself as a growing group of concerned residents dismay with township council, has announced it will start circulating a petition door-to-door in the township this weekend (see letter Page 8).

In a news release Monday, the group maintains the survey council issued to come to the conclusion the majority of residents don’t use or financially support the town’s services was flawed. It also claims that council failed to address the group’s questions about the survey in a timely fashion “is proof openness and transparency are not among council’s priorities.” Volunteers will begin a doorto-door campaign on Thanksgiving weekend seeking signatures to support the following statement: “I

believe that library and recreation services are core responsibilities of a municipality and should be reasonably funded from the tax base, so that they can remain accessible and affordable to all residents.” The statement goes on to state the proposed cost of $55-75 for the average household from the tax base provides good value for equal access to the library and recreation facilities and programs provided by Arnprior and Renfrew. See RESIDENTS, Page 3 R0012349613

Story time resumes at the Arnprior Public Library. – Page 31

News – McNab-Braeside council’s decision to end agreements for shared library and recreation services with the towns of Arnprior and Renfrew is going to have major implications. It is already prompting concern by school officials who will have to deal with extra charges for their students who come from the township. Purchase of service agreements with the towns will end Dec. 31, 2013. Libraries and organizations, including minor hockey and other sports leagues, are scrambling to determine the impact and come up with plans to address problems that include higher fees for out-of-town users and in turn lower enrolment in programs and cuts in services. Beginning Jan. 1, McNab-Braeside residents will pay $60 per family at the Arnprior library for a membership that was formerly funded through taxes. Fees for Nick Smith Centre and other recreation programs are generally about 50 per cent higher than for in-town users. The township says the cost of the agreements in total has increased by more than 50 per cent in the past year. In 2013 the municipality was expected to pay $262,680 on the agreements, 4.6 per cent of the $5,745,756 budget. Even students enrolled in Arnprior schools but residing in McNab-Braeside face additional costs for using the library. St. Joseph’s Catholic School principal MaryLise Rowat confirmed the school has been notified that students living outside the town boundaries will be required to pay for their membership beginning Jan. 1, 2014.

County readies document suggesting changes to Endangered Species Act Steve.newman@metroland.com

News - Renfrew County sent the Province recommendations last spring on how to improve the Endangered Species Act, but it’s backing up the letter with a more substantial document. Paul Moreau, Renfrew County’s director of development and property, has asked county councillors for feedback on the 33-page draft document, Improving the Endangered Species Act – Impacts on Renfrew County. The document includes documentation of the negative impacts the act has on Renfrew County. The document could be critical to Renfrew County and other Ontario municipalities, says Moreau. He asked that all county councillors read the document and recommend updates or other changes before a moreor-less ďŹ nal version is presented to the Oct. 15 meeting of the development and property committee in Calabogie. If all goes well, the report (perhaps with modiďŹ cations) will be recommended for approval at the Oct.

30 session of county council. The document is “important because rural economies are suffering more than others,â€? said Moreau. “We have more species at risk than others, so the impacts on rural Ontario, especially rural eastern Ontario, are more signiďŹ cant than elsewhere in the province. We feel it more than anyone else, and in fact we’re in dire need of growth and development in our community.â€? Moreau says the county has “consulted with various economic sectors in Renfrew County ‌ And we’ve devel-

oped some case studies that outline the various impacts on those sectors, as far as the costs associated with the ESA.â€? Moreau said he hopes the ďŹ nalized document provides constructive criticisms and recommendations so constructive changes can be made to the act. The essence of the county’s ďŹ ve areas of recommendations, as outlined in its letter to the Province last spring, pertain to the listing of species and assignment of status; the species at risk stewardship fund; an adaptive management approach; consultation with property owners; and improved communications and Ministry of Natural Resources staff training regarding agreements and the issuing of permits under the act. Regarding the listing of species, the county has ďŹ ve speciďŹ c sub-recommendations. One is the creation of an independent, objective review team or advisory committee to offer a second opinion on the quality of science and the justiďŹ cation for assigning species to certain status categories. Regarding communications,

the county says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The MNR needs to listen to the concerns of landowners and land managers.â&#x20AC;? The county documentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ap- Arnprior/Renfrew/Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay pendices include a table of plants, aquatic creatures, insects and birds that are classiďŹ ed as species at risk, and their abundance (or lack of abundance) in Renfrew County. These species   include the bald eagle, bobolink, whip-poor-will, AmeriAn Ozark Christmas in Branson can ginseng and butternut â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all Nov 14-22 said to be abundant in Renfrew Including 9 shows (Shoji Tabuchi!

Wanago and the pool, the library is not included. Arnprior Minor Hockey is looking at the possibility of having to charge anywhere from an extra $100 to $300 per player for McNab-Braeside players to make up increased cost. Reaction includes a petition being circulated on behalf of McNab-Braeside Residents for Reading and Recreation (MB4RR), a group of angry residents who â&#x20AC;&#x153;believe access to library and recreational functions is paramount to a healthy and prosperous community (see related story).â&#x20AC;? Susan Kirk, chair of the Arnprior Public Library board, said the move is going to have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;large impactâ&#x20AC;? that will affect not only township residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a big part of our funding,â&#x20AC;? said Kirk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at the possibility of

cutting a third of our staff hours. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be huge not just for McNab-Braeside residents but Arnprior too.â&#x20AC;? Popular childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs and even adult programs are in jeopardy, she said. Library staff and the board will do its best to continue to provide good service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be difďŹ cult but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do the best we can do,â&#x20AC;? said Kirk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of ďŹ guring out to do.â&#x20AC;? Library ofďŹ cials are also worried about the implications on the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Literacy is huge,â&#x20AC;? said Kirk, who said social statistics indicate there are plenty of local children who will be disadvantaged without access to the library. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Arnprior and McNab-Braeside there are a lot of kids out of there who need a lot of help. The library is their window to the world,â&#x20AC;? she said.

The townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s payment in Renfrew for 2013 was $14,2013, a sum partially offset by a provincial grant. The township paid the Arnprior library $85,899 in 2013, a line item that has more than doubled since 2011 when the payment was $35,277. With McNab-Braeside withdrawing from programs offered by libraries and the Nick Smith Centre, they are now â&#x20AC;&#x153;in disarray and the continuation and affordability of some programs will be very much in doubt,â&#x20AC;? says the group.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe that McNabBraeside Council has seriously misjudged the will of its constituents,â&#x20AC;? said chief spokesman Brian Armsden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The survey sent around this summer, upon which this decision was supposedly made, was deeply ďŹ&#x201A;awed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was no option for the public to ask for the continuation of the current arrangements, which have worked for the beneďŹ t of both the towns and the township for many years.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is important to me and my young family that we can

have active recreation available to us at affordable rates,â&#x20AC;? said Christie Freemark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My kids love the library and having proper library facilities available to my family is essential for their growth and development.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recreation, in as many forms as possible is a basic right of citizens and responsibility of our municipalities,â&#x20AC;? added Anita Lyons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Township can afford to carry on with these arrangements but cannot afford to build its own facilitiesâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seniors have been mischar-

acterized by this council,â&#x20AC;? said Tom Peckett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although as a group they may not use these facilities as much as young families, most seniors understand the importance of these facilities to the property values in the township and to our shared sense of community.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will need as many voters of McNab-Braside as possible to sign our petition and canvass their neighbourhood,â&#x20AC;? concluded Armsden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anybody willing to help is encouraged to contact us through our website, email or Facebook page.â&#x20AC;?

A recent incident discussed at council involving a St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teacher who visited the library with her class and was told of the extra charges but understood them to be in effect immediately was likely a result of a misunderstanding, said Rowat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do use the library and up until recently there was no cost,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make it work, but it is a change for us.â&#x20AC;? The library has been a valuable resource for the school and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worried the change will affect students from lower-income families.

G8 comes to Arnprior One of only two touring guitar octets in the world is coming to town, courtesy of Arnprior resident Phillip Candelaria, a member of the Canadian Guitar Quartet, which is pairing up with the Salzburger Gitarrenquartett of Europe for the Nov. 1 concert. This G8 is not a summit meeting of nations, say organizers, but rather an international union of another kind. This sixth tour crosses Canada from Montreal to Edmonton and features premieres of two new works and the release of the first G8 CD recorded by Radio Canada CBC. The concert is at 7:30 p.m. at Grace St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, 269 John St. N. Advance tickets are available at the Arnprior Book Shop or at the door.

Prevent electrical fires with tips from Hydro One News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Electrical fires accounted for nine per cent of all structural fires between 2007 and 2011 in Ontario. To mark Fire Safety Week, Oct. 6â&#x20AC;&#x201C;12, Hydro One has issued the following preventative measures: â&#x20AC;˘ Keep electrical cords away from heat and water as they can both damage the insulation and create a shock hazard. â&#x20AC;˘ Avoid octopus outlets. Clusters of wires and plugs can be a fire hazard along with using extension cords as permanent wiring. â&#x20AC;˘ Put safety caps on any unused electrical outlets, especially if there are young children in the house. â&#x20AC;˘ Buy appliances approved by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and always disconnect small appliances before clean-

ing them. â&#x20AC;˘ When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re changing a light bulb, be sure to turn off the switch or circuit. â&#x20AC;˘ If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re renovating, remember all electrical work must be inspected and approved by the Electrical Safety Authority. â&#x20AC;˘ When purchasing a new home, get an electrical inspection before signing on the dotted line. For more information on electrical inspections, visit http://www. hydroone.com/MyHome/StaySafe/Pages/ElectricalInspections. aspx. For more on Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts during Fire Prevention Week, see the sponsored messages on Page 30.

Collins hired by Horton Horton Townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new public works manager attends her first township council meeting in September. Janet Collins, who resides in Arnprior, was previously Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public works director for nearly a decade. Trained as a civil engineering technologist, she has worked in the private engineering sector for about two decades. She was let go by the Town of Arnprior on Oct. 9 last year in a major restructuring of staff at town hall.

Door-to-door salesman charged News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A complaint about an aggressive doorto-door salesman in Arnprior has resulted in a charge laid under the Safe Streets Act. Renfrew OPP report a resident of Ashbury Street called the OPP on Sept. 27 after a salesperson would not leave his property. Police attended and charged a 39-year-old Ottawa man with soliciting in an aggressive manner. OPP Const. Cory Briscoe is investigating. Earlier this year, the Town of Arnprior advised residents they had options when faced with door-todoor salespeople who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to want to take â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for an answer. In a news release, the town points out that under the Safe Streets Act it is an

offence in Ontario to solicit in an aggressive manner. The definition of aggressive includes â&#x20AC;&#x153;to continue to solicit a person in a persistent manner after the person has responded negatively to the solicitation.â&#x20AC;? Residents should also be wary of door-to-door salespeople who advise they are entitled to enter the home, warns the town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If in doubt, contact the municipality, company or police. The person can be charged if you are willing to provide a statement.â&#x20AC;? Under Ontario law, if you sign a contract in your home you can cancel within 10 days. Therefore, says the town, â&#x20AC;&#x153;do not feel pressured into signing anything; some residents have signed a document, only to find it is in fact a contract.â&#x20AC;?

Many questions asked about oil pipeline for the provincial infrastructure, said Campbell. He said he was also pleased to see how pipeline density will also be doubled in locations where the pipeline is underwater, which includes parts of the Bonnechere River in Renfrew County. Horton chief administrative officer Mackie McLaren says Horton and other municipalities are also going to be kept in the information loop about the project’s future steps. Visitors to the open houses were also asked to provide their email addresses, so they too can be kept informed. An approved project will also mean thousands of jobs. How many local jobs that means remains to be seen, says TransCanada spokesman Davis Sheremata, but the job prospects are generally encouraging. TransCanada says it’s holding on to all business cards provided by electricians and other tradesmen who may benefit from pipeline upgrades or construction.

Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.com

News - There’s likely no financial benefit to most Renfrew County municipalities if the TransCanada Energy East pipeline project is approved by the National Energy Board in the next few months. However, there might be tax revenue for McNab-Braeside if a pumping station is locating in the township. Whether there are tax benefits or not, Horton officials and area residents expressed satisfaction with the availability of TransCanada representatives to talk about the project that, if approved, should bring cheaper oil to eastern and central Canada while reducing the onus for Canada to import oil from such countries as Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. If all goes according to plan, one of two pipelines through this area now being used for natural gas would be cleaned, repaired where necessary and retrofitted to accommodate the flow of oil. That pipeline, with starting points in Alberta and Saskatchewan, would carry oil across the Prairies and through Ontario, including pipeline territory that runs through such Renfrew County municipalities as Admaston-Bromley, Whitewater Region, Horton and McNab-Braeside. A total of 22 TransCanada representatives attended the Oct. 3 open house at the Horton Community Centre, including engineers, public relations officers, members of the aboriginal relations team, pipe installers and environmentalists, who came ready to answer the public’s questions about the pipeline project. If approved, the project would result in the conversion of one of two natural gas pipelines for transportation of crude oil to refineries in Montreal, the Quebec City area and Saint John, N.B. Two of the 68 visitors to the Horton open house were Calvin and Connie McLaughlin of Haley Station, who’ve had more than a passing relationship with TransCanada. Attendance at earlier open houses included 164 in Kemptville the night before, and open houses in Pembroke (44) and Deep River (56). The best-attended open house was in North Bay, with 195 visitors. The pipeline, which crosses a portion of the McLaughlins’ 750 acres, required on-site monitors for about a decade, until the company adopted an automated monitoring system. The McLaughlins were paid for their services in the 1980s and 1990s. Now that the proposal is calling for one of the pipelines to transport oil, the McLaughlins are equally supportive of a project that could bring jobs to the area. “TransCanada has been very good with answering questions,” said Connie of their relationship over the years. Part of the pipeline also crosses the McNab-Braeside property of Kevin and Terry Hartwick who attended the Horton open house. Like the McLaughlins, they said they had questions that were answered. They were also among the several visitors who saw a sample of the 42-inch diameter pipeline and the PIGs, or pipeline inspection gauges, on display. The PIGs will be used, if the National Energy Board approves the project. That approval, if forthcoming, is expected to happen by early 2014. TAX BENEFITS

With approval, the schedule for the $5-billion project includes inspection of the entire exiting pipeline by these PIGs, to ensure that pipeline density and other characteristics meet required standard. Where they don’t, those sections of pipe will be repaired, say officials. The project calls for conversion of about 3,000 kilometres of pipeline in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario, and construction of about 1,400 kilometres of new pipeline, mostly

A portion of the natural gas pipeline scheduled to be converted for transporting crude oil across Canada is found on the McNab-Braeside property of Terry and Kevin Hartwick. At the Oct. 3 TransCanada open house on the Energy East project, Neill Shortt, the project manager for conversion pipeline integrity, talks to them about the pipeline inspection gauge (or PIG) that will be used to ensure pipeline safety. in Quebec and New Brunswick. The project also calls for TransCanada and Irving Oil to build, own and operate a new deep-water marine terminal in Saint John, for shipping oil to Canadian and foreign customers. While Admaston-Bromley, Whitewater Region and Horton would not receive any royalties from the pipeline, which travels through those municipalities, McNab-Braeside (or another municipality farther to the southeast) could receive about $200,000 per year if it ends up housing one of the pipeline’s new pumping stations. If not located in McNab-Braeside, the pumping station would likely be located in the Pakenham area off Dwyer Hill Road for the pipeline that continues down to Iroquois, on the shore of the St. Lawrence River. “Once our hydraulic points are determined across the Energy East system (most are determined at this time), we will continue to meet with landowners in our hydraulic areas in hopes of securing a property to locate the pump station,” said Trans Canada spokesman Philippe Cannon via email in a question from The Chronicle-Guide. “This process is lengthy and generally confidential, as we are dealing with individual landowners and purchasing their land. We will pursue multiple options in each area to ensure we secure a site.” McNab-Braeside CAO Noreen Mellema acknowledged TransCanada has expressed interest in properties within the township. Meanwhile, TransCanada is now collecting the data received from the open houses conducted across the country.

National Energy Board will decide

Visitors to the Horton open house included Whitewater Region councillor Allen Dick, who likes what he’s hearing about the Energy East project. “I think it’s a great thing to have the project,” said Dick. “It’s an added feature, and it means jobs.” Horton Coun. Glen Campbell had a similar reaction after attending the open house. “It’s good to see that they plan to move the oil with a system that’s already in place, putting it through a pipeline that is already in the ground.” Less train and truck transportation to move oil is also good

News - The National Energy Board, which was established in 1959, is Canada’s independent regulator of international and interprovincial pipelines, federal energy development, and federal energy trade. If NEB approves the Energy East project, the scheduled in-service date is late 2017, for oil to its Montreal and Quebec City refineries. Energy East’s oil is projected to reach its final pipeline destination, in Saint John, in 2018. To find out more, visit www.transcanada.com

Estimates call for the creation of more than 10,000 jobs, including 1,742 in Alberta, 2,694 in Ontario and 3,114 in Quebec for pipeline development and construction. Estimated operational jobs, for the next 40 years, are more than 25,000, with Ontario and Alberta the biggest benefactors, at 10,335 and 6,128 jobs respectively. Inevitably, environmental issues are raised. At several open houses there have been opponents to the pipeline, in keeping with the philosophy of opposing technology that uses fossil fuels. Damage prevention and emergency response were topics regularly raised at the open houses, as they should be, suggested Sheremata. Accordingly, there were printouts addressing those issues, and others on such topics as corrosion, diluted bitumen in pipelines and building restrictions over and around pipeline locations. “We’re getting a lot of questions from people who want to know if we can convert this pipeline and operate it safely,” said Sheremata. “So what we’re trying to do is explain to them the system that will be used, and that every inch of the pipeline will be thoroughly cleaned and inspected before it’s put into service, so we know it’s up to spec.” TransCanada representatives are also describing to visitors at the open houses the detection system for potential problems, added Sheremata. “We have an oil-control centre in Calgary, which is the nerve centre of our entire system. And we have another one for natural gas. There are sensors along the pipe, probably about 5,000 on Energy East that will send a signal back every five seconds to the nerve centre in Calgary. We have people watching these boards, and this data, so we’re able to detect within five seconds a drop in pressure. “If we notice something, we’re immediately able to deploy resources to check it out. And our protocol dictates that if pressure goes on for more than 10 minutes, we shut down that section of the pipeline (whose longest distance between valves is 30 kilometres).”

OPINION

EDITORIAL

Announcements hypocritical Another week another spending announcement by Cheryl Gallant. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been that way for years. The Conservative MP has little to no presence in many communities such as Arnprior and Renfrew except when she drops in with a press release boasting another bundle of tax dollars for this or that company or organization. Far from seeming ungrateful, we appreciate seeing hard earned tax dollars returning to the local level that produced it; especially if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to a non-profit that helps the less fortunate. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing wrong with expecting money back from Ottawa. Of course, during a prior life in opposition the local MP and other conservatives would have called it a shameless waste to funnel taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; money through countless civil servant hands only to find its way back to where it came from. Just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tax people as much; federal surpluses are a sign of over taxation; working families and businesses know best how to spend their money. Not so these days. A quick example. In one day, Oct. 3, Gallant brought money to Renfrew, Braeside and Calabogie. And her website is filled with successful grant applicants winning money from some federal program or other. See the Sept. 23 press release headline that reads: Cheryl Gallant Brings EODP Funding to Logos Land in Cobden. Gallant brought more than $10,000 to the company. Was the company worthy of a federal government investment? Apparently politicians are qualified to make that call. She wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have brought the money if she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it true. Press releases like this fly out almost on a weekly basis, and invariably involve our highly paid MP driven around the riding to tour one business or another before gathering with the CEO for a cheque presentation photo op. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about getting re-elect-

ed, of course. The businesses like the money and Gallant likes sliding up next to them for a feel-good announcement. This, obviously, is a poor use of time. She ought to be luring jobs to the fairly-depressed region. Worse though is the contradiction. Conservatives run entire campaigns on a mantra that small government is better government; that any time government meddles in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;freeâ&#x20AC;? market economy, it messes things up. Gallant has echoed similar sentiments countless times. Again, business people know best how to run their businesses. So why is Gallant giving hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to area companies? Giving to non-profits is one thing. Giving to the private sector is picking winners and losers in the marketplace. Those on the left believe in government strategically investing in Canadian businesses to bolster local economies. It eventually comes back to governments in tax revenue that can be spent on social programs. Keynesian economics is about governments playing a significant stabilizing role in the economy. With a sizable number of public sector workers in the economy there is less chance of booms but also of busts. Social democracies survived the 2008 crash better than deregulated economies like in the U.S. for this very reason. The Conservative government knows it must play a role in the economy. Hence the Economic Action Plan ads on television. But its MPs and supporters continue to champion free markets and trickle down economics and the eternal superiority of the private sector. So what to call it when Gallant and others chant the mantra of hands-off governing while handing out cash in every direction? Hypocrisy, plain and simple.

McNab-Braeside councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stupidity hurts its own rural residents To the Editor: Forrest Gump said it best: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stupid is as stupid does.â&#x20AC;? I slap my forehead that M-B council cannot grasp that their decision to remove municipal funding for the Arnprior Rec centre and library will further gut the rural and small town population base. We chose to move to a small town for lots of reasons that out-weighed the convenience a city brings. On the must have list were a vibrant rec centre, an indoor pool and a public library. These were minimum conditions. Wake up M-B council. Pulling funding to save a few folks a few bucks is, if nothing else, financially irresponsible. Those few bucks you saved you are going to lose in the long run as house prices, development and the tax base stagnate.

We live in a Canada where access to those very items you just deemed not important is considered by most people an essential service - a mandatory right. A thriving small town rural community must attract new people, new families. You just nailed up a Keep Out sign on the whole region. Since moving here six years ago, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand why people continue to pay the expenses of having two mayors, two councils and all those expenses living side-by-side residing over a population of a few city high-rises. M-B and Arnprior should merge and the savings put toward facilities and activities that attract people to our wonderful area and keep it a thriving community. M-B council, you should really get out more. Or just get out. Brad Moore Arnprior

To the Editor: I was inspired by the three recent letters to the Editor in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper (Chronicle-Guide). I think that they summed up rather well what some (we think most) of the constituents of McNab-Braeside think about the Transfer Agreement and the survey. For those that may not have heard, the Council of McNab-Braeside voted to opt out of the Transfer Agreement for library and recreation service with Arnprior and Renfrew. The justification for this decision was based on the survey. McNab-Braeside Residents for Reading and Recreation (MBR4RR) is a group of concerned residents from our township that believe that access to library and recreational functions is paramount to a healthy and prosperous community. We are dedicated to ensuring that these facilities remain accessible to our community at a reasonable price. We feel, and many agree, that the survey was flawed from the outset, with the results able to be manipulated to meet the pre-desired outcome that some of our elected officials sought. We assembled a list of questions that people were asking and presented them to council seeking clarification. Council stated that they would address the questions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after the survey was due.

Residents to petition against M-B decision Openness, transparency and clarity were apparently not priorities for council on this issue. As it stands there will be no agreement between our two municipalities come Jan. 1, 2014. I am not fear-mongering when I say that there is a significant chance that we will lose access to these facilities without an agreement in place. A snow-ball affect will begin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; prices for the programs that we enjoy will rise, making them unaffordable for some of the current users. Arnprior will be forced to make up for this lost revenue by raising prices further, making it less affordable still ... and so on and so on. There are some who say: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use those services, so why should my taxes go towards that?â&#x20AC;? To those I say this â&#x20AC;&#x201C; do not think for a second that your taxes will go down by the value of the Transfer Agreement. You will still pay that $55-$75 every year. Unfortunately those that did use the services will no longer have access to them and you are still out the money. There is no â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;winâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in this situation. We feel there is a better way to determine the desires of our community. MBR4RR has decided to go door-todoor with a petition to get a true indication of what our community feels about this issue.

Township stand cruel and shortsighted Fund from tax To the Editor: I have to say I am completely disgusted with the results of discussions around the library and recreation sharing agreements between Arnprior and McNab-Braeside. As a 10-year resident of McNab-Braeside, until last year when I retired I rarely if ever used the recreation facilities or the library in Arnprior, but it never would have occurred to me that this should not be part of my tax bill as I consider these services to be a “common good.” A common good is something that the community as a whole pays for even though not everyone uses it because it is a benefit to the community as a whole to have reasonable access. Just like school and health care and food inspection. Kate Summerbell’s comments in the Sept. 26 article in the Chronicle-Guide, were right on the

money. This decision by council doesn’t only affect the people of McNab-Braeside it affects everyone, including those living in Arnprior, because, as we have already read, library services to the public will be impacted. So families with kids get ready to pay $750 vs. $500 to participate in the public swim, and for seniors and pensioners living on minimum wage, welcome to paying $60 a year for library services and $174 vs. $115 for aquafit (which will keep you healthy and reduce the burden on the health care system), or maybe these activities will just be one of those things that families and low income earners will have to cut out because they can no longer afford it. Now there’s a quality of life! I don’t believe that it is a coincidence that council’s decision took place the same time as

the Firestone presentation. Come on people. Bruce Firestone is going to look after the people of McNab-Braeside and have a big arena built? Who is going to pay for that? And if it is built by private investors, do you think it is going to be affordable? Say $2 per hour? Think again. I believe that promoting the common good is the goal of democracy. Basing decisions on a skewed and imperfect survey and a lack of community consultation is not democracy. In my opinion this decision by council is not in the common good. In fact it is cruel, and shortsighted. In that context, I for one can’t wait for the next opportunity to exercise my democratic rights. Sandra Gabler McNab-Braeside

Here’s the proof there are angels in Stittsville To the Editor: Last week two ladies entered the Dandelion Kids Store in Stittsville. They were looking to help out a family of five with much needed help getting ready for backto-school things. The children range in age from 6 to 15. After explaining the situation to Sandra Edwards, the store owner, she instantly became our first angel in search to fill the needs of these children. Then along came a second angel who had just popped into the store. She heard of the

situation from Sandra and made additions to the basket of great clothing these children were about to receive. It did not end there. The second angel got in touch with the two ladies who were staying in Stittsville for a few days. She took the time and the caring to drop off more beautiful clothing for the children. What a day it was: like a domino effect in helping other people in need. Our second angel came to tell us she was going to get her friends together to make up a big

Christmas basket for this family. We, the two ladies, would like to send a big thanks to Sandra and all her staff at the Dandelion Store and to Sue for all her kindness and caring to have been part of these blessings this little family received from these ‘special angels’. We are so humbled by your love and kindness. God bless you all. Wouldn’t the world be wonderful if we all shared a bit of our ‘angel’ instinct. Peggy and Elta Watt Arnprior

base: Petition Continued from Page 8

The petition will state the following and respectively ask that you sign your name and state your address. “I believe that Library and Recreation services are core responsibilities of a Municipality and should be reasonably funded from the tax base, so that they can remain accessible and affordable to all residents. “I believe that the proposed cost of $55-$75 for the average McNab-Braeside household from the tax base provides good value for equal access to the library and recreation facilities and programs provided by Arnprior and Renfrew.” Starting Thanksgiving weekend, we will have volunteers going door-to-door with the petition, seeking your signatures. Along with the petition will be some pertinent facts about this situation – facts that council was not willing to clarify prior to the close of the survey. This is most likely our only option to try and save access to the facilities that our families enjoy so much. Many hands will make light work of this, so if you would like to lend a hand it would be greatly appreciated – even a few hours will be a great help. Please just send us an email back preferably with your phone number letting us know what you can do to help. Brian Armsden MBR4RR

At one point the Arnprior tot was second of more than 25,000 entries.

To the Editor: Hunting season is upon us, and while most of us who are hunters and fisher folks are responsible in their pursuits, there is still a rogue bunch of ignorant people out there who pretend to be responsible but, alas, are anything but. On Sunday morning (Sept. 29) at about 8:20 a.m., I was walking my dog on Edward Vince Edwards Court when I heard two volleys of shotgun fire coming from the vicinity of Turtle Pond along the old CN right-ofway. All told about 20 shotgun blasts were fired in two barrages. This area, as I have written about previously, is a wetland conservation zone and at my last count had approximately 12 mated pairs of ducks there as well as other protected flora and fauna. Since this area is within the Arnprior town precinct, which prohibits the discharge of firearms at any time for any purpose, and prohibits hunting within the town as well, I was immediately concerned. More importantly, this area is also a residential area which is part of the Campanale development known as Riverview Estates. We have elderly people living here as well as families with small children. I contacted 911 to be advised that

hunting season for waterfowl had opened on Saturday, Sept. 28. I advised 911 of the above restrictions. She seemed to question the validity of my assertion and wanted to verify my information. Once she did, she said a police report would be filed and an officer would contact me later. No one did! Today, the 30th of September, I ventured into the area to check it out. Very quickly I found evidence of duck feathers near to the Ontario Hydro right-of-way to Turtle Pond. I also counted one remaining duck in Turtle Pond. I saw tire tracks in the same area that suggested where the culprits may have parked. It was a “no brainer.” I am suggesting again that the access road from DeCosta Street down towards the trestle be properly secured so that these poachers are deterred. I believe that this is an area that needs protection. We as citizens living here also need adequate protection as well as the wildlife here. That is partly where our tax money goes and we deserve better. Thomas Charbonneau Arnprior

A turtle tale of empty holes and broken shells Some alert predators have learned that smorgasbords exist in the ground below their feet Lifestyle – Autumn brings predictable events. The green masks of leaves are shed, revealing the brilliant hues that were hidden beneath. Dawn is greeted by a cacophony of geese descending from the North. And on beaches and roadside shoulders scatterings of empty shells can be found. The shells are those of turtle eggs laid in late spring. The eggs, which number from a couple of dozen for Painted Turtles up to 40 for Snapping Turtles, are left buried in the ground to hatch on their own. A peculiar twist of Nature, the soil temperature determines the sex of hatchling turtles. If excessively high or low temperatures dominate summer, only female turtles are produced. Temperatures less extreme produce both sexes. For other animals offspring sex is deter-

mined genetically, not environmentally. Turtle eggs hatch in late September or early October. The hatchlings dig their way out of the ground and head for water. Most hatch before daybreak, a time that gives them a better chance of reaching water’s safety. Many animals eat small turtles, even birds such as crows, so hatching in darkness has its advantages. Some predators have learned that smorgasbords exist in the ground. Skunks, raccoons, and foxes dig up turtle nests and devour their egg, leaving behind scatterings of empty shells. Predators also dig up nests soon after the eggs are laid. I have watched skunks and raccoons busily excavating nests at dawn. It is likely easier to locate nests in spring, as freshly backfilled holes are easy to see. To

MICHAEL RUNTZ Nature’s Way

make it more difficult for predators to find their precious eggs, turtles sometimes dig “dummy” nests in which no eggs are laid. But how are turtle nests discovered after months of rain and wind and animal traffic have erased any evidence of eggs being buried in the soil? Likely predators either hear or see young turtles digging their way out of their earthen prisons. Just before dawn one October, Dan Strickland and I came across a partially excavated nest (we likely scared off the excavator). When we looked into the hole we were surprised to see baby turtles emerging from exposed eggs! During the next hour dozens of baby Snapping Turtles

climbed out of the ground and crawled toward the glow of the rising sun, a direction that brought them to a nearby lake. Remarkably, hatchling Painted Turtles sometimes spend winter in the ground, emerging in the spring. They are the only reptiles endowed with the ability to survive after being frozen. However, after their hatchling stage, Painted Turtles can no longer make this claim. It is unlikely that any eggs escape the jaws of predators that find a nest, which is why turtles lay as many eggs as they do. Painted Turtles live for twenty or more years and Snappers, up to a hundred! With large clutches and long lifespans, it takes only one successful hatch to provide a replacement for the mother turtle. The turtle motto seems to be: if you don’t succeed, try, try again! The Nature Number is 613MICHAEL RUNTZ 387-2503; email is mruntz@ Newly hatched snapping turtles are tiny. start.ca.

Bike it, hike it, plant it during nature tour Oct. 20 Lifestyle – Go nuts on Sunday, Oct. 20 lending nature a helping hand while you discover two conservation lands and the road between on your bike or your boots. The Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC), the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) and the Town of Mississippi Mills invite you to bike, hike, walk, or run a route starting at the High Lonesome Nature Reserve in the Pakenham Hills to the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area, planting acorns along the Carbine Trail. The MMLTC and the MVCA share a longterm perspective to conserving important natural lands. Planting oaks from their acorns for future generations to enjoy strengthens this commitment. “We know mighty oaks from little acorns grow. Oak trees, the kings of the forest, make our landscapes and are huge contributors to the biological health of the forest,” said MMLTC president Howard Clifford. “They are home to more insects than any other tree and offering food and shelter to birds and animals. What better way to represent the importance of small contributions to significant environmental benefits than through the acorn.”

Registration for Go Nuts! starts at 9 a.m. at High Lonesome Nature Reserve where you’ll collect your acorns, then head to the Carbine Trail. This gently sloping nine-kilometre trail down Pakenham Mountain is suitable for mountain biking, walking or running. At the end of the Carbine Trail organizers encourage you to continue to the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area for refreshments and more planting en route. Shuttles will be available at the end of the Carbine Trail and the Mill of Kintail to return you (and your bike) to High Lonesome. Some areas of the Carbine Trail and High Lonesome are rough terrain suitable for more experienced bikers and hikers. Participants looking for a gentler way to enjoy the day are welcomed to start at the Mill of Kintail where accessible, groomed trails offer a less rugged route. You can choose your route online at www. mmltc.ca or decide at registration. The event has been made possible through Canon’s Take Root Program, presented by Evergreen, a national community tree planting and greening initiative supported by Canon Canada and led by Evergreen. Take Root is in support of National Tree Day. MMLTC has also re-

ceived a Canon PowerPoint camera, which will be used to record the event. To reach High Lonesome Nature Reserve from County Road 29 in Pakenham, turn left on Waba Road and drive west for 2.9 km. Turn

left on Barr Side Road and drive 1.6 km, take the first left at Carbine Road, then drive 4 km to 867 Carbine Rd. For further information and maps, visit www.mmltc.ca or call 613-278-2939.

Not only residents but visitors to the township will benefit from the addition. She thanked staff, contractors, volunteers and all those involved in transforming the park and lot at Red Pine Bay over the past four years. Facilities at the park, which is the site for the annual McNab Days community festival, include a new washroom. Gallant was impressed with the park and new dock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always wonderful to see local taxpayers get some of their money back,â&#x20AC;? she said.

The docks have been outfitted with wheels and will be pulled from the water at the end of the season.

Museum receives infrastructure funds News - The Arnprior and District Museum has new windows thanks to $46,662 in federal funding from the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF). Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant visited Arnprior recently to see the results of the window restoration at the D.A. Gilles Building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The D.A. Gilles Building is a beautiful landmark in Arnprior,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to congratulate Janet Carlile, the board of directors of the museum, and the Town of Arnprior

council on the exceptional application made to this program.â&#x20AC;? While the windows have been refurbished using as much of the original wood as possible, even with the modern pieces the windows still blend perfectly into the old architecture. The D.A. Gilles Building, built in 1896, is the home of the museum. The restoration of the windows was completed by Nepeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shanab Management, which made use of much of the original woods components and window structures.

T.L. STEWART CABINETMAKERS/SUBMITTED

Lyle and Jen Stewart with the new Smartmac moulder machine that allows their cabinetmaking shop in Waba to create a wider range of custom mouldings.

Valley cabinet maker buys new equipment to provide custom offerings to public Business - Waba-based T.L. Stewart Cabinetmakers is expanding their business “to meet the demand for quality millwork and trim pieces.” Recognizing there is a need in the market to satisfy home owners and builders who are looking to match or install custom mouldings, owners Lyle and Jen Stewart recently made an investment in a new moulder. Since 1994, T. L. Stewart Cabinetmakers (TLSC) has been supplying residential and commercial customers with custom millwork, furniture and stairs from their workshop in Waba. In a news release, the company explains it specializes in solid wood machining and construction of stairs, doors, butcher block counter and island tops; reproduction of historical mouldings; and furniture using domestic and exotic woods. TLSC branched out in 2004

and are now providing local galleries with their brand of specialty cutting boards; the Waba Block. The Stewarts say they are very excited about the prospects this new investment brings to the family-run business, QUALITY FIRST “We are passionate about the beauty and warmth of wood and the craftsmanship of our timeless pieces. This machine will be a huge asset to our custom mouldings, stairs and millwork jobs by allowing us to run profiles more efficiently and at a higher quality finish.” The new moulder is a Leadermac LMC 518s Smartmac and was purchased from Akhurst Machinery (of Mississauga). It has the capability to run mouldings up to 7” wide as well as 5” high, and TLSC has a large quantity of stock pattern knives to match

News – LCBO stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Monday but will have regular hours of business Saturday and Sunday. The only exceptions are some rural LCBO agency stores that will observe their normal hours of business on Monday, Oct. 14.

most demands. They also have the ability to custom grind knives to their customer’s profile. All that is needed is a sample of the millwork to replicate. Traditionally, TLSC has concentrated on producing finished v-joint, flooring, casing, baseboards, crown and door jambs out of various wood species, as well as lumber dressed on all four sides. With the expansion, the company will be able to run more profiles in a much more efficient manner, with a higher quality finish. It will also allow the company to provide custom profiles for the construction industry on a requested basis. The Stewarts focus on customer care and service. “We work closely with each customer, to ensure their ideas and desires are realized and that each piece is built to their specifications, with attention to detail, and pride in craftsmanship.”

The LCBO reminds everyone to drink responsibly and never consume alcohol when driving. Responsible hosting information is available at www.deflatetheelephant. com. LCBO also urges its customers to bring a reusable bag when shopping.

Officials close case on Ferry Road deaths Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

News – Authorities found no criminal wrongdoing in a tragic car crash that claimed the lives of a local mother and son last winter. Donna and Daron Graves of Fitzroy Harbour went missing on Thursday, Jan. 17 after their regular weekly outing to play pool at The Prior Sports Bar in Arnprior. The two, 61 and 29

years old respectively, were heading home in their newer black 2013 Dodge Dart. It wasn’t until three days later members of the Ottawa police marine dive unit suspected a vehicle went through the ice beside the Quyon Ferry, at the end of Ferry Road, within metres of the family home. When the bodies were recovered, police said autopsy and toxicology examinations would be conducted. Those reports take

months to complete even in cases where a crime is not suspected. They take much longer in other cases. Const. Chuck Benoit said the reports will not be released to the public, and that no charges will be laid. NO CHARGES

“In this matter, from our side there are no charges being laid,” Benoit said. “We have completed our investigation and will not

be releasing any reports publicly.” Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) spokesman Ab Campion confirmed The Prior Sports Bar isn’t facing any charges in this case. “There are no outstanding issues with its license,” Campion said. The AGCO considers laying charges if an establishment is found to have served a patron above the legal limit.

Stay clear, stay safe this Thanksgiving News - Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is reminding people to exercise extreme care around waterways this Thanksgiving weekend, particularly on rivers and lakes near hydroelectric stations and dams. “The cool, wet weather experienced in many areas of Ontario, has led to water levels and flows that are higher than normal for this time of year on many waterways,”

R0012336655

says OPG’s Mike Martelli. “Water conditions may appear safe but can change frequently, rapidly and without warning.” Most hydroelectric facilities are remotely controlled by operators located many kilometres away. Dams can be opened or stations can be started up throughout the day. This causes frequent and rapid changes in water levels and flow.

The changing conditions create strong undertows, turbulence and sudden, powerful gushes of water moving downstream in what was once calmlooking surface water. It is important to obey all warning signs, and respect safety booms, fences and “no trespassing” signs. Learn more about safety around dams and hydroelectric stations by visiting www. opg.com/watersafety.

Calls from MPAC scam: OPP News – The OPP is warning residents to be wary of callers claiming to represent the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). In recent weeks, MPAC has become aware that a person or persons is placing phone calls to property owners claiming to represent the property assessment organization and asking for personal information. MPAC has reported these incidents to the OPP. MPAC does not make

calls to collect personal information. If you receive a phone call from anyone claiming to represent MPAC and requesting personal information, do not provide it, advise the OPP. If you have any questions or receive such calls, call MPAC’s Customer Contact Centre toll-free at 1-877-635-6722. Alternatively, if you suspect you or someone you know has been affected by this scam, call your local OPP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Police warn of golf frauds News – Police are investigating a series of frauds targeting businesses and golf courses in Eastern Ontario. The first allegation was received by the OPP in February and an investigation revealed several more victims and is ongoing. Local business owners or operators were approached by a man offering to advertise their business on granite signs installed at area golf courses. The suspect obtained monies through cheques, and credit card charges. Anyone who has any knowledge of this incident is asked to contact the Lanark County Detachment OPP using the toll-free 1888-310-1122 number or

the Lanark County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477. Meanwhile, OPP officers are investigating a number of incidents of fraudulent phone requests for ‘bail money’. The caller identifies themselves as a relative, often a grandchild, stating that they have been arrested and need bail money forwarded to a named third party. The caller often says they have been involved in a collision in order to increase the pressure on the victim. The bail money requested has been between $1,200 and $1,800. The public are advised to be on their guard against any similar calls.

‘Look while you cook’: urges ESA News - Each year there are an average of more than 700 electric stove-top fires in homes across the province says a recent report released by the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA). While the number of incidents has decreased in the last decade by 35 per cent, the report reveals that more than 130 Ontarians 18 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, October 10, 2013

are hurt and three are killed each year on average due to cooking fires. The leading cause of these fires is leaving a stove-top unattended while cooking and the data show that certain kinds of stoves increase the risk.

Local pipe band wins third in North American championships Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

News - What a summer it was for the Arnprior McNab Pipes and Drums The band added another major award to its long list of honours and spent the season at festivals, events and competitions, showcasing its considerable talent. The band won third at the North American Pipe Band Championships in Maxville, Ontario as part of the Glengarry Highland Games in August. The grade four band played an intricate medley of hornpipes, jigs, strathspeys and reels. Pipe major Bobbie Smith and lead tip Tomm Mackenzie led the band to a third-place finish out of 17 bands from across Canada and the United States. “We’ve had success, but not at this level,” said Smith. “We were super happy, it was great.” The band has been also been successful this summer at Highland games in Toronto, Kingston, Smiths Falls, Cobourg and in Almonte at the North Lanark Highland Games. “The way I put it to the members is, ‘If you were an athlete, these North American championships are like the Olympics,’” said Smith. The group went into the Maxville competition prepared, focused and relaxed. Four judges presided over the contest, one of the largest in North America, and the Arnprior-McNab contingent included two pipes, drums and an ensemble. Smith, 31, has been a part of the band for 20 years.

SUBMITTED

The Arnprior McNab Pipes and Drums celebrate after completing the medley contest at the North American Championships in Maxville. “I wanted to play from a young age,” he said. In fact, his father (Bob Smith Sr.) is a member of the band as well, having gotten involved after his son. What Smith loves about it now, aside from the camaraderie, is the thrill of competition. “For me it’s the competitive aspect and working towards a goal,” he said. It’s a boon for the group, which is made up of a competitive core and other members. The players are all skill levels and come from as close as Arnprior and as far away as Beachburg and Kingston.

“There is a wide spectrum of people who come,” said Smith. The pipe band has openings available for experienced pipers and drummers to fill spots on their 2014 competitive roster. The band is also

accepting new piping and drumming students. Practices for the 2014 season will be offered at three locations - Renfrew, Arnprior and the Ottawa area. Please contact Bobbie Smith at 613-432-6272 for more information.

Tips to having a healthier Thanksgiving dinner without sacrificing taste Ian Harris

Opinion - Turkey is a great choice for supper. To keep the bird moist without using butter, try rubbing the skin with olive oil and then rub on paprika, garlic powder, onion and/or whatever herb or spice you prefer. Little trick: removing the fat from turkey or chicken before roasting cuts the fat down by almost 50 per cent. Rubbing the bird with olive oil replaces the bad fat with good fat, allowing the bird to stay moist, flavourful and allows the rub to adhere to the bird. The turkey is often cited as the culprit in after-dinner lethargy, but the truth is that you could omit the bird altogether and still feel the effects of the feast. Turkey does contain L-tryptophan, an essential amino acid with a documented sleep-inducing effect. L-tryptophan is used in the body to produce the B-vitamin, niacin. Tryptophan also can be metabolized into serotonin and melatonin, neurotransmitters that exert a calming effect and regulates sleep. However, L-tryptophan needs to be taken on an empty stomach and without any other amino acids or protein in order to make you drowsy. There are lots of protein in a serving of turkey and it’s probably not the only food on the table. Realistically, it takes a great deal of energy to digest a large meal. When your stomach is full, blood is directed away from other organ systems, including your nervous system. The result - you will feel the need to snooze after any big meal, particularly if it is high in fats and carbohydrates. The argument over white meat versus dark meat - the truth is that dark meat contains very little difference in fat. The big difference is that dark meat is moister and has more flavour. Have a sweet potato instead of a starchy white potato. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamins A, B and C; minerals like magnesium, copper, potassium and manganese; high in fiber; low in fat; and low in sodium. Instead of slathering butter on your sweet

Weight management, wellness and nutrition potato, which is very high in saturated fats, try a little Becel Original margarine or zero per cent fat Greek yogurt from Liberté and for a healthy substitute to sodium, sprinkle garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper or any herb and spice like oregano. A great substitute is Mrs. Dash. It’s a sodium-free product loaded with flavour and is sold in many varieties. Sodium (found in table salt and processed foods) is another issue in North America. Too much sodium can cause swelling or bloating of the extremities. This is primarily because the kidneys are responsible for eliminating salt from the body, and if there is too much salt, the kidneys cannot eliminate it fast enough and you will get fluid retention. The fluid retention is also capable of building around the heart. This will cause the heart to not be able to beat and function properly, which can cause high blood pressure, congestive heart failure or even strokes and heart attacks. Dessert can be healthy and flavourful as well. As for the pumpkin cheesecake, substitute the cream cheese, which is very high in saturated fats, for zero per cent fat Greek yogurt (Greek yogurt is quite thick and can be a replacement in any recipe calling for cream cheese) and use almond flour for the crust. Remember to substitute the butter for Becel original margarine in the crust or try a crustless cheesecake, which is delicious and cuts the fat down to almost zero.

The tickets will then be sold to the public during October and November, up until the AGM at which time the winning ticket will be drawn. Just imagine the opportunity of providing the winner with such an awesome collection of gift certificates just before Christmas! Last year we gave away one grand prize, this year our hope is that we receive so many gift certificates that we are able to create a Grand Prize, but also have a first and second prize package. Let your imagination run… this has got to be a gift certificate, NOT product – I believe every business has the ability to offer a gift certificate of some sort… For example…. Retail or Restaurants – that’s easy… a Dollar valued certificate Automotive – how about an Oil Change? Or Brake inspection? Heating & Cooling – how about a furnace cleaning Hotels – one night accommodation Marina – day rental Landscaping – a certificate for a tree So let’s all pool together and come up with great certificates that will give us collectively great prize packages to win. Please let us know by email your intention and don’t forget to include value. You can then drop off your gift certificate to the Chamber office, or let us know if you wish for it to be picked up.

Spinning to win at women’s show

As we did last year, we want to collect as many gift certificates as possible from our membership and create one large basket of all these gift certificates. The value of the prize will depend on the collective value of the gift certificates. Once all the certificates are collected, the value will be determined, and a license will be obtained and tickets will be printed. Last years’ gift basket was an approx $3500 value.

Deadline for certificates is October 14th. Thanking you in advance for your support and please remember, think outside the box if you need to!!!

Packers move into first in Valley Division der Patrick Kealey just under the crossbar for his first of the season against his former club. Before the period ended, McDonnell would strike again after Arnprior native Patrick McGrath drove to the net leaving him wide open for the tap-in to put the Packers up 2-1.

Sports - The Arnprior Packers continue to roll along, defeating both the Metcalfe Jets and Stittsville Royals last weekend. The Packers came from behind in both games to register the victories. With a 5-2-0-0 record, the surprising young Packers sit in first place in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Valley Division. Last Friday evening the Metcalfe Jets came to the Nick Smith Centre and held a 3-1 lead with just under 10 minutes to play. However, the never-quit Packers posted a solid come-from-behind victory with four late goals. The Packers top goal scorer, Damian Armstrong, got things started when he scored his second of the game on the power play to get the Packers within one with 9:30 remaining. From there it would be back and forth until White Lake native Dallas Farr tied the game with 1:06 left on the clock. Metcalfe called a time-out to try and regain its composure, but it would not matter as Marc Shanks tallied his first of the year just eight seconds later, putting the Packers up 4-3. With the Metcalfe goaltender pulled, defenseman Brayden Harvey found Armstrong who put the game away with his third goal of the night to make it a 5-3 Packers final. Packers Player of the Week Erik Miksik made 28 saves between the pipes for Arnprior. The hat-trick put Armstrong in a tie for second in the league with seven goals. His seven goals and nine points in seven games puts him in 11th place in league scoring

‘BEST PERIOD’

Arnprior Packers celebrate a 5-3 win over Metcalfe at the Nick Smith Centre last Friday. The team followed up with a 2-1 win over Stittsville to take over first place in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Valley Division. and fifth in the Valley Division. Sunday afternoon saw the Packers travel to Stittsville to take on the Royals in a battle for first place in the division. The first period was scoreless until the Roy-

als found the net on the power play with only five seconds left on the clock. In the second period, the Packers tied the score 1-1 when 17-year-old Tim McDonnell broke into the Stittsville end and beat goalten-

In the third period while defending the lead, the Packers outshot the Royals 16-3, pressuring the play for 20 solid minutes. It was the Packers’ best period of hockey of the season as they held on for the 2-1 win. “For a young team, it is definitely a huge character win. Everyone went out there with one thing in mind and that was to get two points and take first place in the Valley,” said Packers captain John Mclean. The final shot count was 45-26 in favor of Arnprior as Miksik made 25 saves for his league-leading fifth win. The Packers next game takes place this Saturday, Oct. 12 when they travel to Maniwaki, Quebec to take on the Shawville Pontiacs. Originally, the Packers were scheduled to host the Renfrew Timberwolves in a Sunday afternoon game, but that contest has been cancelled. Arnprior’s next home game is a rare Wednesday tilt, when they host Stittsville at the Nick Smith Centre in an 8 p.m. start.. The game is another important one, as the Packers lead the Royals by two points in the Valley Division race. Arnprior has 10 points, while Stittsville and Renfrew have eight, Perth six, Almonte five and Shawville four. With files from John Carter

ARNPRIOR RESIDENTS URGED TO PREVENT KITCHEN FIRES Arnprior, Ont. - Oct 1, 2013 - The best way to prevent kitchen fires is to never leave cooking unattended, says Arnprior Fire Department Deputy Fire Chief and Fire Prevention Officer Rick Desarmia. The Deputy Chief’s advice comes as part of Fire Prevention Week (October 6-12) and its theme to ‘Prevent Kitchen Fires.’ Unattended cooking is the leading cause of home fires and injuries in the province. Important steps to prevent kitchen fires include: • Pay attention when cooking - especially if you are using oil or high temperatures. If you must leave for any reason, turn off the stove. • Wear tight-fitting or rolled up sleeves when using the stove. Loose, dangling clothing can easily catch fire. • Keep a proper fitting lid near the stove. If a pot catches fire, slide the lid over the pot and turn off the stove. • Never attempt to move a burning pot. • Keep a close eye on anyone in your household who is drinking and attempts to cook. “So many times when we are called to a kitchen related fire the residents tell us that they only left the kitchen for a few minutes,” said Deputy Chief Desarmia. “In reality it only takes a few seconds for a dangerous fire to start. We hope that by raising awareness in our community we can make our residents safer by asking them to take important steps to prevent fires from starting in the first place.” For more information contact: The Fire Prevention Office of the Arnprior Fire Department at 613-623-4231 ext. 250

Faithful Thursday afternoon listeners to CBC Radio One’s All in a Day may not recognize the face, but they will know the name. Movie reviewer Robert Fontaine, right, dropped by the historic O’Brien Theatre in Arnprior on Sept. 29 to sign copies of his True Confessions of a Film Critic. Chalk full of his off-beat humour and ramblings - though thoroughly entertaining - reviews of many movies released over the past few years, the many in line to meet Fontaine, including Frank Hortop above, enjoy his reviews as much for the analysis as for the sidebars.

I have a couple of milestones that took place in the last two weeks that I will focus on in this month’s column. Not in chronological order, but firstly on Wednesday Oct 2nd I celebrated 10 years as your Member of Provincial Parliament. It has been an honour each and every day of each and every year since then. Looking back, I often wonder on how unlikely my election actually was back in 2003. In 2003 my party, the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party, was in government but it was becoming increasingly apparent that the Liberals were almost certainly winning the election called for October 2nd. As we know, they did go on to win a significant majority. Our riding, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, was a Liberal seat and had been for many years. My cousin Sean Conway, the incumbent at the time, was not running but his executive assistant was the Liberal candidate. While the NDP had a very capable and passionate candidate in Felicite Stairs, the election would essentially come down to a contest between Derek Nighbor and myself. Derek was an exceptional candidate; far more versed in policy than I was at the time, as he had been working for Mr. Conway for a number of years. He was intelligent, articulate, and very comfortable on the hustings, as well as a formidable opponent in debates. While I would be falsely modest if I said I didn’t believe that I was a pretty good candidate myself, given all the circumstances it would seem logical that the odds were stacked against me. One thing I had going for me that no one else could replicate, was the depth of respect and affection that people had for my father, Paul Yakabuski. This has become more and more apparent over the years. This brings me to the second milestone I mentioned. A week before my 10th anniversary, September 25th marked the 50th anniversary of dad’s election to the Ontario Legislature. There is no doubt in my mind whatsoever, that without the work my father had done and the commitment he had shown to the people throughout his political career, I would never have been elected. As I travelled throughout the riding, both prior to the election call, then during the campaign, I would encounter people every day who would relay to me stories of how my dad had helped them or someone they knew in dealing with government, red tape, and bureaucracy. Time after time they would tell of the compassion he had for ordinary people, and the lengths to which he would go to try to address their concerns. Often the conversation would end with something like this “well if you’re half the man your father was, that’ll be good enough for me”. Ten years into my political career I am still astounded by the number of people who continue to recollect events and the impact that dad had on their lives. At Queen’s Park, where it’s been over 26 years since he sat in the legislature, I’ve been honoured to hear of numerous stories about how dad stood up for the people of his riding, and indeed all of Renfrew County and Eastern Ontario. There are in fact still a handful of people still working there who remember him well. As time marches on I understand more and more how my father shaped me. How to such a large degree my beliefs are grounded in those that he passed on to me. I recognize clearly that while we are different in many ways, I’m proud to have retained some of the qualities that he possessed. I wish I had known my father as well when he was still around, as I feel I know him today. There will never be another Paul Yakabuski, and I know the old timers in the Valley would agree with me on that one. I only hope that in some small way, they see a little bit of him in me. 1010 R0062067653 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, October 10, 2013 33

What should I do if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost my dog or cat? Ian Stupp Pet Talk

Lifestyle - As soon as you notice your dog or cat is missing, immediately check around your home and neighbourhood. Ask friends and neighbours if they have seen your pet and if so, when and where? If your pet is not found after your initial search, contact your local humane society/ shelter, bylaw officer and police department and file a lost animal report. Be prepared to provide a description of your pet, licence number and tattoo or microchip number if applicable. Keep several up-to-date colour photographs of your pet and note down any distinguishing marks. if you do loose your pet, a photograph will be very useful. As the saying goes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a pictures worth a thousand words.â&#x20AC;? Besides the obvious posting of a poster of your lost pet, ask your local radio station if they

would kindly air a missing dog report and speak to you local newspaper as well. All too often I hear of a missing pet only to find out it went missing without a collar and identification. Collars should be worn at all times. A missing pet without proper identification, in many cases, will not be happily reunited. When walking your dog in public make sure you have it securely fastened to a leash at all times. Even the most obedient dog will bolt when the opportunity arises. It is also important to note that many communities within the Ottawa Valley have an off-leash bylaw requiring pet owners to have their pets on leashes while in public. Keep you cats indoors. Not only will this deter theft, injury or death, it will also curb the cat overpopulation and keep them away from your neighbours lawns and gardens. Although a backyard is supposed to be a safe haven for your pets, do not leave them

unsupervised. If for any reason you cannot supervise them, then call them in until you are available. We all know our neighbours within our neighbourhood. If someone or something, especially a vehicle, seems outof-place, then write down the time, day and date, a description of the individual(s), color, make and model of the vehicle, license plate number and call your local bylaw officer and your local police department. As well, make your neighbours aware of what happened. It really comes down to common sense. Protect you pets as you would your children. From my family to yours, happy Thanksgiving!

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fill â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on trunk or treat day News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Arnprior and District Humane Society is holding its annual â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fill â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em Upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fundraiser Saturday, Oct. 19. Volunteer vehicles will be parked at Pet Valu in Arnprior from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with trunks open ready for donations of needed supplies for the Arnprior no-kill animal shelter. The society reports the number of stray and abandoned cats and dogs has reached unprecedented levels in Arnprior and area. As a result, the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s need for support from the public is even more critical than ever. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To continue to maintain the operation of the no-kill animal shelter, we depend on the support of the local community to help us out with much needed every day supplies,â&#x20AC;? says the society in a news release. It explains that items such as paper towels, liquid laundry soap, bleach, dryer sheets, window cleaner, large garbage bags and hand sani-

tizer are needed for the day-to-day operation of the shelter. As well, there are items that people might not think of, such as pillow cases, blankets, cat trees, cat and dog treats, and office supplies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would love that adoptions would increase and help with the over-population (remember all our shelter pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated ), but if you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready to adopt we still need your support,â&#x20AC;? says the society. Before making a donation, you can visit the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website www.arnpriorhumanesociety.ca to see the wish list, ways to help, information on adoption and some of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;beautiful animals we have waiting for their forever homes.â&#x20AC;? You can also call the shelter 613-623-0916 for more information. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your gifts do make a difference,â&#x20AC;? stresses the society.

Puppies need a good start

a commitment, raising and training the dog in your home, with the expectation for daily long walks in all conditions. When the dog is ready to enter into formal training at the National Training Centre of Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind in Manotick, you must be prepared to give up the dog so that it may continue its journey as a guide dog or assistance dog. Ownership of the dog is retained by Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. One person is responsible for the pup, but this is a great family volunteer project. Pups are ready to be placed this fall. If the dog graduates, you get the opportunity to meet the client that your dog is matched with. For information on this volunteer position contact Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind at 613-692-7777 or email info@guidedogs.ca .

News - Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind is seeking loving homes for future guide and assistance dogs. The volunteer position is called â&#x20AC;&#x153;puppy walkingâ&#x20AC;? but entails a lot more. As a puppy walker, you foster a puppy in your home for 12 to 18 months. The idea is for the pup to learn what it takes to become a â&#x20AC;&#x153;good dogâ&#x20AC;? before entering formal training to become a guide dog or assistance dog to help someone in need. You must be home most of the day or obtain permission to take the dog to work with you. You require access to a vehicle for veterinary appointments and training sessions. All food and veterinary expenses are provided. This is

Introducing Prior Players’ ‘Leading Ladies’ Amanda Dixie Prior Players

Events - The Prior Players are excited to announce the cast of their fall production of ‘Leading Ladies’, a comedy by Ken Ludwig. The play will set the stage back in 1952 with various exciting set changes, while featuring familiar local talent as well as new experienced actors. Two male struggling thespians, barely making ends meet, strike up a hilarious ruckus when they find an opportunity to make millions. Great Aunt Florence – played by newcomer Margie Klimpel – has an advertisement in the newspaper proclaiming she is searching for her long lost

Margie Klimpel family ‘Max and Steve’ to give her inheritance to while on her deathbed. Klimpel has directed and stage managed previous Prior Players’ productions and is excited to be on stage for the first time. The thespians – played by

Prior Players’ veteran Marcel Girard and newcomer Ray Maynard – are surprised to learn that Max and Steve are actually Florence’s nieces Maxine and Stephanie. And the adventure begins... You’ll remember Girard from previous Prior Players’ productions, performing in Mellville Boys, Kiss the Moon Kiss the Sun, The Odd Couple and Don’t Dress for Dinner. Prior Players is delighted to have his talent on stage once again. Tangled up in the plot is their star newcomer Meg played by Nadia Ouellet. Ouellet has written, directed and starred in several productions in her career, as well as starring in many roles including Juliet in Goodnight Des-

demona, Good Morning Juliet (2011 Theatre Glendon, York University) and Lex in Jurassic Park on the Silver Stage (2009 Toronto Fringe Festival) just to name a few. Prior Players is proud to introduce newcomer Pamela Hisko-Glofcheskie, who will be playing Audrey, a wellbuilt, extremely sweet and good natured “intelligent airhead.” Hisko-Glofcheskie has performed in many productions, including shows that have won awards in the Stars of The Festival events. She is eager to get back into her acting pursuits. Welcoming back to the CEC stage is Prior Players’ Devin Boudreau starring as Meg’s fiancé Duncan. He per-

formed in Arnprior’s 150th anniversary show last year. Also on stage will be a new talent, Corey Grinstead, playing the role of Butch, a man “a little slow on the uptake,” yet kind and good-hearted. He has performed in several school productions, including this year’s The Sound of Music at St. Joseph’s High School in Renfrew. Leading Ladies is being directed by the talented and wonderful Prior Players’ ‘Leading Ladies’ Helen Owen and Linda Ktanschuz. Stage manager is David Anthony, working behind the scenes this time around. The crafty and resourceful Alan Rowsom is the set design and construction guru as well as sound and lights technician.

Enthusiastic production team members are Amanda Dixie, Charlotte Leitch and Susan Betts. You won’t want to miss seeing the Leading Ladies’ cast perform – they’ll have you roaring with laughter. Mark it on your calendars. SHOW TIMES

Show dates are Friday, Nov. 8; Saturday, Nov. 9; Friday, Nov. 15; and Saturday, Nov. 16, all at 7:30 p.m. The will also be a matinee on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. Tickets ($15) will be printed and sold starting this week and are available at Bonnie Jane’s Scones, Arnprior Bulk Foods store and Stylez Hair Salon in downtown Arnprior.

Community - So far it’s been a labour of love for several Arnprior area veterans. The garden at Legion Park looked more beautiful than ever this year but not without some hard work. Ted Graeme and Patrick Simmonds can attest to the fact the word ‘labour’ is a fitting way to describe the garden’s maintenance. The garden came to be three years ago when Arnprior

Home Hardware donated red tulip bulbs and a suggestion was made to plant them at the park because the Legion’s own grounds don’t have much space. Since then the varieties of flowers have increased and the garden has grown. “We started out with just one bed,” said Graeme, adding that late Legion member Gerry Lentz played a big role in the garden’s creation and care. Keeping up with the watering has proved a chore as there is no water source at the park so Simmonds and Graeme

were forced to fill containers at the Legion on Daniel Street and transport it to the Edey Street Park, Filling in the garden each year with annuals and eventual replacement of the bulbs all come at a cost. “We’ve been trying to budget it ourselves,” said Graeme. “We’d be very excited to have donations of money or plants.” Future plans include the addition of more perennials. To make a donation or get involved, call Graeme at 613*623-8187.

DYING FOR DIGNITY

Connected to your community

The way forward Ontario is on the cusp of a revolution in the way the province offers palliative care, but the plan hinges on government support Metroland East Special Report

O

ntario’s palliative care agencies offer a chilling prognosis for the decades to come. With a seniors’ population predicted to double in size by 2036, and a funding model for residential hospice care that relies primarily on charitable donations, the system just isn’t sustainable, say palliative care experts. Canadians are living longer, giving them more time to develop chronic illnesses. The health-care system can also expect to encounter a growing number of patients with unpredictable life spans as a result of an increase in cases of dementias such as Alzheimer’s and other diseases. “Unless something is done in the next few years, we’re going to be in a crisis situation on a number of fronts including palliative care and Alzheimer’s and other dementias and just physical space for treatment of the Baby Boom generation,” said Christine Elliott, Ontario Progressive Conservative health critic. “We need to start planning seriously now, because this is happening in the next three to five years,” she added. “We’re going to have to start to deal with it as boomers hit 65 and start having more complicated health problems.” Meanwhile, only 16 to 36 per cent of Canadians have access to hospice palliative care and end-of-life services, according to the Canadian Palliative Care Association, depending on where they live. Three-quarters of all deaths occur in hospital, even though most Canadians would prefer to die at home.

The provincial government has failed to properly fund residential hospices, said France Gélinas, the Ontario NDP health critic. Many are forced to come up with more than half of their operating costs through charitable donations and fundraising drives. “Except for hands-on care, the Ministry of Health has not paid for hospices, so the hospices are on the hook for everything,” she said. “Fundamentally something is wrong – we don’t ask any other part of the healthcare system to fundraise their operations. Why do we ask hospices to do that?” Hospice palliative care is a priority for the Ontario government, said provincial Health Minister Deb Matthews. But she was vague concerning the ministry’s current and future plans, adding that it wasn’t long ago that hospices received no funding at all. “When George Smitherman was minister he announced some funding. I recently announced we would cover the nursing care in hospices,” she said. “So we have come from zero to 50 per cent, or whatever the number is, in a very short period of time.” The provincial government started providing funding for hospices in 2006. TIGHT BUDGET

The Ontario government’s action plan on palliative care must recognize both the growing seniors’ demographic and the province’s tight fiscal situation, Matthews said. “We know we’re not going to have a whole lot more money,” she said. “Our government is committed to keep increasing the health-care budget, but

ing consistent palliative care planning across every region. “So, within basically the same envelope, we have to transform how we deliver care,” said Matthews. “One of those things ... is improving options for palliative care.” One option is reallocating money from hospitals to residential hospice care. Liberal Senator Sharon Carstairs, who founded and chairs the Canadian Virtual Hospice, said receiving palliative care at a hospital or long-term care facility is the most expensive form of delivery. “You want to avoid sending someone to a hospital setting if you possibly can. But at the same time you

need a hospital setting,” she said. “It’s turf war. It’s about moving the dollars out of the hospital system and into the community.” By funding more hospice beds, the province can reduce the burden on hospitals’ emergency rooms and acute care beds, according to a report published in 2009 by the Hospice Association of Ontario’s Residential Hospice Working Group. An acute care bed in an Ontario city costs an average of $850 per day, nearly twice the amount charged by a hospice for a residential bed: $439 per day. Using a 10-bed hospice model, this would free up $1.5 million annually in health care spending, according to the hospice working group. But this money does not represent dollar-for-dollar savings, said Rick Firth, director of Hospice Palliative Care Ontario. “We’re decreasing the cost of care for the individual and we’re freeing up beds in the hospital for them to use for other priorities,” he said, adding it’s about providing appropriate care for the patient.

DYING FOR DIGNITY Continued from 42

Moving forward, the province needs to set a funding target of 80 per cent for residential hospices, he said, as well as improve access to hospice in rural communities. Célestin Abedi, executive director of the Champlain Hospice Palliative Care Program, an advisory group for the Champlain Local Health Integration Network, is hoping to convince the LHIN to change the funding formula for hospices. “If we would like hospice to play a bigger role in the health-care system, it is not correct to ask them to fundraise for 60 per cent of the budget to do that,” he said. “In the rural regions, where you almost don’t have any capacity for fundraising, you cannot give them a bed and say, ‘fundraise for 50 or 60 per cent of that money,’ knowing that they don’t have that capacity.” Hospices already supplement their operations with an army of volunteers. More than 600 people donate their time to Hospice Care Ottawa to keep its services afloat.

See video of one volunteer’s story: www.insideottawavalley.com /ottawaregion-video/

The Champlain LHIN is now looking at how much money goes into palliative care in hospices and in the region. Its strategic plan identifies palliative care as one of the health network’s priorities for 2013-16. MOVING FORWARD

A big part of the solution to Ontario’s palliative puzzle lies in the integration of services, say palliative care experts. “Integration is key,” said Firth. “It’s a trend in most of the western world in order to contain health-care costs.” After years of advocating for improved access to hospice by the Quality End of Life Care Coalition of Canada, the message finally resonated with the federal government. In 2012, the Canadian Palliative

program aims to help patients and caregivers create a palliative care plan that starts long before the patient is in the final days of life. “The one thing about the Ottawa program is that the community has come together and (is) talking together about integration of services,” said Kitchen Clarke. Other examples of cities offering innovative and integrated programs include Edmonton, which has a regional palliative care program that offers 57 hospice beds located in three different areas in the city, as well as an intensive palliative care hospital unit.

Lessons from Roger’s House

T

here’s a lesson for palliative care professionals in the way Roger’s House helps dying children. “Truly, the model we have for pediatrics would be the gold standard for adults,” said nurse Marion Rattray, manager of Roger’s House. One of only four hospices of its kind in Canada, Roger’s House provides eight beds and a home-like environment for families whose children are terminally ill. Respite care, pain-management consultations and other types of ongoing interventions are more necessary for young patients at the end of life, Rattray said. Caring for palliative children is

usually a more complex challenge than providing the same care for dying adults. Children receiving palliative-care are more often stricken by multiple, complex genetic conditions that leave the child with very high care needs. “We need to be connected to a tertiary care hospital,” said Lloyd Cowin, executive director of Roger’s House. “That’s critical.” That need reinforces the link between the hospital’s palliative care team and the hospice – something that differentiates it from hospices that serve adults. Those lessons could be translated into adult care settings by having medical teams extend palliative care

outside hospitals, she said. “You’d have a palliative care team in hospital, but that team would also outreach into the community, into the hospices,” Rattray said. Many hospices are affiliated with hospitals and palliative-care experts who work in a medical setting, said Cowin, but that interdependency is more vital in pediatric palliative care. One of the big secrets of its success is co-location – the house sits on what was a small sliver of spare land at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Being located on the same site means doctors and nurses from the hospital’s palliative care team help oversee care at Roger’s House.

“It’s very unique,” said Cowin. “It’s a big reason for our success.” The labour-intensive youth hospice model works simply because it serves a smaller proportion of palliative patients, Rattray said, making it possible for Roger’s House and CHEO to invest the resources needed to provide that high level of care. Creating a connection with families and the children themselves helps ensure the patient receives the type of care that’s best for them during the entire course of their illness, Rattray said. “The beauty of it is if we are consulted early in the illness trajectory we are able to help them all the way through,” she said.

That’s the type of foresight – referred to in the medical community as “advanced care planning” – that palliative-care professionals say would help ensure patients get the care they need – and not treatment they don’t want. It would also reduce the burden of dying adults on hospitals. The key is to let the patient and his or her symptoms dictate what time of treatment or care is needed, Rattray said. “In medical schools and in nursing school, basically you’re taught to fix. And we are such a deathdenying society that we have to fix. We just have to fix this. And some things we can’t.”

Making sauerkraut was a family tradition during Depression Lifestyle - The big wood barrel had been scrubbed with hot soapy water and a brush, and put outside on the back stoop to sun-dry. It would take days for it to be as dry as a bone. And if the sky looked like a drop of rain might come

down, the barrel was rolled into the summer kitchen until the threat was over. Dozens of big fat cabbages were already in the summer kitchen on a table Father had put together by putting three wide planks on two saw-horses. A new

bag of coarse salt had been bought at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store. We were ready. This would be a Saturday night when there would be no going off to a house party, or having neighbours in for a game of cards. This night would be reserved for making sauerkraut, and the whole family would be doing the job. I had mixed feelings about the night we made the sauerkraut. Certainly when the whole family was working together brought me special joy, but being the youngest of the five children, my job was menial at best. All I was allowed to do was bring in more cabbages from the summer kitchen as they were needed. The old pine table had been stripped of its red and white, well-worn oilcloth, and the wood scrubbed clean by my sister Audrey. All the chairs and benches had been moved back to the wall ... there would be no sitting that night! Hands had been scrubbed with a brush and hot soapy water, and both Father and Mother wore long white pinny aprons for the job. When the work-night started, on the table close to one end, was the cabbage slicer. Father said it

had been made by his greatgreat grandfather when he settled in Northcote generations ago. It looked like a long narrow wood box with no lid. And in the very bottom of the box was a sharp blade that Father said could be deadly if you accidentally ran your hand over it. The well-scrubbed barrel had been rolled into the kitchen right after supper, and it sat close to the table at one end. Straddling the barrel was the wood box with the deadly blade, which also, of course, had been scrubbed within an inch of its life. Now it was time to bring in the cabbages from the summer kitchen ... not all at once, of course. They were kept out as long as possible, so that when they were finally shredded, they would still be well chilled from being outside of the steaming hot kitchen. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I figured into the picture. It was my job to bring in the cabbages

when Father announced he was ready for another one. This meant I was constantly running back and forth â&#x20AC;Ś inside, outside. And it meant I missed seeing most of the actual job of shredding the big pale green heads, which didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t please me in the least. But back in those days, a young daughter did exactly what she was told. There was no negotiating with a brother or sister to change jobs! It was Emerson and Everettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job to peel off the very top leaves of each head of cabbage. Not one leaf more than the very top ones, either. That would be sheer waste. Beside the table were two huge baskets, and into these baskets went the pulled-off outer leafs. They wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be tossed out in the back yard, where garbage for which there could be found no other use (and that was very little indeed) was tossed. No, these baskets of leafs would go to feed the pigs. And this is where my youngest brother Earl came into the picture. It was his job to tear down the discarded cabbage into smaller pieces. That way, Father said, it was easier to make the feed go farther when it was finally tossed out to the

pigs, mixed with other slop. My sister Audrey sliced off the very end of the cabbage with a sharp butcher knife, and that too was tossed into the baskets by the table. And then that head was passed on to Father. With spotlessly clean hands, Father fed the head of cabbage into the wood box straddling the barrel, running it back and forth over the sharp blade, letting the finely shredded cabbage fall into the barrel. Mother used a block of wood attached to a short pole (Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creation), and every so often Father stopped shedding, as mother gently packed down the cabbage. Everything would come to a halt, and with a measuring cup dipped into the bag of coarse salt, Mother would spread in a goodly amount. For some reason I was never able to fathom, the number of shredded cabbages, was always enough to exactly fill the barrel! Not right to the top, of course, but with about 10 inches of what Father called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;breathing roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The very top of the shredded cabbage got the final toss of coarse salt, and then a well-scrubbed stone ... the same one we used every year, was the last addition to the barrel. The stone would make sure the cabbage was on a steady pack-down. It took Father and three brothers to roll the barrel out to the summer kitchen. Of course, the sauerkraut would not be ready to eat until it had been well fermented, and was always best when the blasts of winter froze it solid. By then, which is something else I had trouble figuring out, the cabbage, turned to sauerkraut had settled down into the barrel, and was considerably less, I thought, than what had been put in that night in our kitchen. For days afterwards, I would sneak a peek into the barrel and would be met with the sharp tang of the fermenting cabbage. I would have a feeling of contentment come over me. Because now I knew, deep in that awful Depression, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how bad things got, we would at least have sauerkraut to put on the supper table.

CLR474394

I know we are all feeling a bit sad That we’ve lost our Poppa, our friend and our dad Together we have cried an ocean of tears As we feel so empty and hold many fears But Poppa would want us to know, he’s in a good place And that he’s watching us all with a smile on his face As we have made him so proud, as proud as can be That he has raised such a beautiful and special family Thinking back now we really must say We feel lucky and privileged to have known Poppa to that day For in our lives, you have played a special part The memories we will treasure and keep close to our hearts Although he has gone we will always be together And his spirit will live on in each one of us forever When you look to the sky, look for the brightest star As that will be Poppa looking down on us from afar Poppa, if you are listening say a prayer for us every day Be sure to protect us and guide us on our way We know when God called you, you had to go But we want you to know Poppa, we miss you and love you so With all our love, Kim, Bill, Joel, Kate, Bonnie, Neil and Abby

Anne was born on February 1, 1930 in Gatineau Mills, Quebec. She started her family in Terrace Bay, Ontario, where her children were born, and then moved to Renfrew in 1967.

If we could write a story It would be the greatest ever told, Of a kind and loving Father, Who had a heart of gold. If we could write a million pages, We’d still be unable to say, Just how much we love and miss him, Every single day! We’ll remember all he taught us, We’re hurting, but we won’t be sad, ‘Cause he’ll send us the answers, And he’ll always be our Dad. Though it’s been a year since you left, It still seems like yesterday. Miss you, Carl and Bev

In loving memory of my precious daughter Joanne Daughters have a special bond, It’s a love that forms a tie, And even in the darkest hour, That love will never die, It’s what we draw our strength upon, In sadness and despair, Our comfort in the worst of times, Because it’s always there. Her memory is our keepsake, With which we’ll never part, God has her in His keeping, We have her in our hearts. Missing you always, Love Mum and Ron You and your Dad are now together

In loving memory of a dear husband, father, father in law and grandfather who passed away suddenly April 11, 1933 – October 6, 2012 It is a year since God reached down and took you home But the heartache and silent tears are still there like yesterday The precious memories that we hold in our hearts Will always remain there through the rest of our lives Until we meet again With Love Geraldine Kevin, Trudy & family Helen, Doug & family

YORK, Jamie In loving memory of our dear Jamie who left us so suddenly and tragically while at work, October 6, 2009. He is gone, but not forgotten, And, as it dawns another year, In our lonely hours of thinking, Thoughts of him are always near. Days of sadness will come oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;er us, Many think the wound is healed, But they little know the sorrow, That lies in the heart concealed.

Isabel enjoyed a career as a registered nurse for many years, but was at her happiest when surrounded by her family and many friends. She enjoyed many past-times, including cooking and baking, knitting, gardening, volunteering at the Renfrew Fair, and travelling among others. She took great joy and pride in all of her children and grandchildren, and she was loved dearly in return. Thanks to everyone who visited and sent cards and ďŹ&#x201A;owers during Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s illness. Thanks also to the doctors and nurses at the Ottawa Civic and General Hospitals, as well as the Renfrew Victoria Hospital for the care she received during her hospitalizations. Special thanks to the entire staff of Hospice Renfrew for the exceptional care she experienced there, to Sheilah and Lindsay Gibbons, Willis Wren, and Barb Smith for the many drives to appointments and other support she received from them, and to long-time friend and travelling companion Marilyn Delarge for the many hours spent looking after her and keeping her company during her illness.

The family of the late Bill Oates of Foresters Falls wishes to thank all those who helped out at the time of his death on September 19, 2013. With each embrace, every clasp of hands you enabled us to endure our loss and to share our burden of grief. Everyone who came to console us took away with them a small portion of our sorrow which allowed our loss to be lessened. In our hearts, especially, is the staff of the Bonnechere Manor, for their efforts to ensure the very best care and comfort for Bill and his family. We wish to convey our thanks to Mr. Wayne Heubner and his staff for their compassion and care. The utmost admiration is bestowed upon this wonderful community, who in times of need stand at the ready; â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Is there anything I can do?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. They think of something appropriate and just do it.â&#x20AC;? (Edgar Watson Howe 1853 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 1937) The kindness shown by the giving of food, cards, emails and long distance hugs helped to sustain us. We are blessed in having Trinity United Church in Foresters Falls. Though God answers our plea for strength, it is you, good people; His servants here on earth who show that He abides within, by your acts of good grace. Donations towards Trinity United Church Memorial Fund and RVH Dialysis Renfrew in Bills memory are greatly acknowledged and appreciated. It is with these regards we thank all of you. From the families of David, Lianne, Kenneth and Karen.

CHEO study aims to prevent ATV injuries Emma Jackson emma.jackson@metroland.com

News – Young ATV enthusiasts are invited to tell the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario why they love their sport, in an effort to prevent injuries. CHEO will spend the next several months interviewing ATVers aged 12 to 18 years and their parents to study what makes the activity fun as well as risky. “We want to know what people’s experience is in riding an ATV and get their thoughts on what can make it safer,” said Corrine Langill, manager of health promotion and injury prevention at the children’s hospital. She said CHEO sees a wide range of ATV-related injuries every year, including concussions, head injuries, broken bones, internal injuries and, on rare occasions, death. The audio-taped, confidential interviews will take between 30 and 60 minutes and will cover a range of questions including what parents worry about when their kids are ATVing, what kinds of rules parents and their children set in order to make the experience safer, and why youth choose ATVing as a hobby. Interviews can be conducted in the participants’ homes to make the experience more convenient, but parents and youth will be interviewed separately. Each participant will receive a $20 gift card, up to $40 per family. Langill said the study’s parameters don’t dictate a specific sample size, so interviews will continue until she and her research partner Kristina Rohde feel they’ve adequately surveyed the subject. “Once we’re getting the same information from people over and over then we know we’ve pretty much covered the topic,” Langill said. “There’s not a magic number.” The research team will then perform a detailed analysis of the information and pull out common themes. Eventually, Langill said she and her team would like to publish their findings in a peer-reviewed journal to promote better injury prevention strategies. For more info or to book an interview, call Kristina Rohde at 613737-7600, ext. 4128 or email krohde@cheo.on.ca.

Horseshoe league wraps Good food, great friends and sunny weather all contributed in making this year’s Wellington Street Park Horseshoe Tournament a fantastic success, say organizers. Right, the winners of the A division were Buzz St. Denis and Richard Patenaude, while the winners of the B division were Cathy Frivalt and JoAnn Patenaude. The annual horseshoe tournament in Pinegrove was a double elimination competition with 13 teams of two players each. The league starts up in early May and continues until September at the Wellington Street Park in McNab-Braeside. Anyone interested in joining for 2014 should contact R. Patenaude. SUBMITTED

November to assist wouldWe have unique people in this area be playwrights with their and we have really interesting distinctive stories to tell.” Stone Fence producer Ish Theilheimer sees the project as an opportunity to encourage local writers to hone their talents, not just as playwrights but in various literary fields. “It’s a powerful learning tool to hear your words read by others,” he says. “And you never know if your words will work until an audience hears them.” Stone Fence Theatre, now in its 10th season, has produced popular plays about the area’s pioneer roots, local personalities such as Benny Afelskie and Mac Beattie, and rural issues such as corporate takeovers of small business. This year’s production of There’s Hippies Up the Line! explores with comedy and music the unlikely blending of rural values with the “back-tothe-land” movement, which brought a new community of city dwellers to the hill farms up the line. The show plays in Eganville, Killaloe, Micksburg and Renfrew this fall. For more information and to register your intent to submit, email Bulger at a.macbulger@gmail.com by Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Arts - Stone Fence Theatre is looking for local stories by area writers for its second annual Ottawa Valley Script Development Project. Monologues, drama, musicals and comedies of 10 to 20 minutes in length will be read by a team of Stone Fence actors at a public event in February. “Historical material, personal stories, local tragedy, feuds, memoirs, reminiscences are the raw material for dramatic stageplays,” says Ann Bulger, dramaturge and member of the Stone Fence Theatre board of directors. “Think about the powerful events in your life, in the lives of your family or ancestors. Think about the dramatic historical events that shaped your community over the years. “Think about our cultural milestones: hunting season, curling, the church suppers, funerals, weddings, kids moving to the city, the family farm, the connections between differing groups such as AECL, the military, First Nations, cottagers, retirees.” Johanna Zomers, co-writer of this year’s Stone Fence Theatre musical, There’s Hippies Up the Line!, agrees that “ordinary life” in the Ottawa Valley is fertile ground for drama. “When we first started talking about the hippie-local stories, we came up with a dozen different sce-
