Town sends collection agency after $524,000 in unpaid bills Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

News – If you owe the town money watch out: they may be coming after you. Arnprior council learned at its Oct. 15 meeting that outstanding water bills and Nick Smith Centre rentals will be sent to a collection agency. The discussion took place as an aside to a financial update report by acting treasurer Renee Couture. Back in May she informed council of money owing on ice rentals dating back about 10 years. Reeve Walter Stack wanted to make sure that a new process is in place whereby rink users must pay upfront. That is now the case. But some $78,000 remains outstanding. “A lot of these aren’t new. The amount does date back quite a few years,” Couture said. “They are years and years of adding up.” Parks and recreation director Glenn Arthur disputes the amount, saying the $78,000 figure is far too high. Over the years there has been talk about collecting the money, he added, but it never came to fruition. He thinks it will be difficult in some cases to get the money back. See MORE THAN Page 5

Company denies it intends to create a ‘slum’ Continued from front

Boyce Partridge of Maple Drive found his comment – “It’s not my vision of Arnprior� – was echoed by other speakers who followed. Many worry the density is too high, that traffic will grow to dangerous levels and that it will create a ghetto of transient renters who commit crimes. “If you people go ahead and bless it, I’ll lose a lot of respect for you,� Partridge said. “You would be very distressed if this was built in your backyard.� Dave Sherk took issue with the linked duplex units, called terraces or stacked townhomes, that could stretch as high as 2.5 storeys. “That’s getting overboard,� he said. Sherk and others said they understand that intensification saves the town on infrastructure costs while boosting tax revenue, but he predicts the de-valuation of his home will offset some of the gains. “My house value would plummet quite a bit,� Sherk said. John Tripp predicted beer bottles strewn across his lawn. Cathy Turner from Smolkin Street complained about fencing and the number of cars that would pass by her bedroom window from Baskin Drive. She noted that spring water drainage is already a problem at her home. Smith explained that engineers would correct any drainage problems on the site, which may affect Turner’s in a positive way. She also

talked about fencing types. When Smith admitted that the resident is right in expecting more traffic, Turner exclaimed: “That’s ludicrous,� in reiterating her concern. Mayor David Reid, not impressed by Turner’s raised voice or the encouragement she was receiving from others, jumped to the town staffer’s defence and reminded everyone that it is not the town’s plan: it is submitted by a developer. “The tone is a little bit not right,� he said. “I don’t blame you for being upset, but not at staff.� After another neighbour said it will “look like a bloody slum in New York,� the mayor admitted that the town’s hands are tied somewhat if the plan meets with the official plan and provincial standards. David Carson said he worked on similar projects for many years as a tradesman, but that this one will quickly turn into a slum. “It’s going to look like hell. It makes me mad,� he said. “I realize you need more taxes, but it’s not necessary. Get a mall in there instead.� DEVELOPER RESPONDS

Shawn Bhatia, the director of land development at Devcore, doesn’t apologize for maximizing efficiency with a condominium block and following government rules to build in-

frastructure and revenue for public coffers. He said the company has agreed to build a sidewalk and a sound barrier. But he goes much further, saying if he lived on Maple Drive he would appreciate homes blocking the increasing traffic noise from Baskin. “I don’t think I’d be mad,� Bhatia said. “I don’t think I’d mind (living nearby). It’s not a river view or anything, it’s a heavily travelled road.� He rejects the idea the development will become a slum, saying empty nesters from the city are moving to Arnprior. They are downsizing, not wanting to maintain a large yard, but will likely keep their properties clean and crime-free. The properties will be too expensive to serve as rentals, he believes. He cedes that “nothing is written in stone yet� but added that in his opinion it is a proper use of land; and if the only counter argument is that neighbours don’t want a new development near them, that is not good enough. He also admits the company wants to make a profit, but it also wishes to work with others to advance its positive reputation. The company is considering projects in Carleton Place, Carp and others. One compromise it made to “exceed municipal requirements� is to meet the town’s request to reduce the number of units from 44 to 42. “The applicant had requested a reduction in minimum lot area and frontage for semi-de2

tached units, which council refused already, so the plan was amended to meet the minimum requirements but causing the number of units to be decreased by two,� Smith said. That plays into a criticism that the process leaves local residents out of decision-making; that a company from another province can get away with doing what it wants. Bhatia said his company has bent to elected officials’ wishes. Also, the town’s official plans are brought about by public consultation, and provincial guidelines are made by democratic parties. So there are many opportunities to affect the process, he said. He is confident the community will be as pleased with this project as folks in Limoges, near Casselman, are with a similar Devcore project. Bhatia doubts property values will go down, maintaining that Devcore projects tend to increase valuations. The Gatineau company will look to hire locally, but Bhatia has found that if there are only one or two options locally the labour costs can run as much as 50 per cent higher. They may be forced to bring in their “east end� team. “We look forward to breaking ground in the fall, and we’ll do our best to handle residents’ concerns,� Bhatia said. Council will make its decisions in the coming weeks. The county will have the final say.

The bodies of 18 Canada geese lie strewn along Usborne Street in the vicinity of the old Gillies mill.

7,&2

No referral necessary News - The callous disposal of 18 shot Canada geese along Usborne Street in McNab-Braeside has upset several local residents. While not illegal, it certainly isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ethical, said Ministry of Natural Resources spokesperson Jolanta Kowalski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, it gives all waterfowl hunters a bad name,â&#x20AC;? she said. A Braeside resident noticed the geese as she was travelling along the road in the vicinity of the Gillies mill property. Shocked she stopped and counted 18 dead birds (she asked that her name not be used as she called both the OPP and MNR to investigate and is worried about repercussions). She said the discarding of the bodies in the ditch along a road that is a common route for bicycles and walking children is â&#x20AC;&#x153;disgusting.â&#x20AC;? She said the geese had the breasts cut out of them and the rest of carcasses left to rot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks like a slaughter ... it really depressed me,â&#x20AC;? she said. She said the OPP attended, but said there was nothing they could do. Kowalski explained that the MNR investigated, but it would be difficult to lay charges because migrating geese are under federal jurisdiction. While it is legal to shoot geese this month, they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been left to rot in a public place, she said.

Township pays tribute to retired treasurer/deputy clerk Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

It was a chance to thank Connie Graham for years of dedicated service to the Township of McNab-Braeside. The municipality hosted a Sept. 20 gathering to pay tribute to the treasurer/deputy clerk, who retired this summer. Friends, family, council and staff turned up at the Arnprior Gold Club for the event. Graham was touched by the support. “It’s great to see everybody,” she said.“ She spent 13 years with McNab-Braeside, having worked in the same role at Laurentian Hills for 12 years previous to that. Her career was a rewarding one and Graham said she encourages young people to consider municipal work when looking to the future. “Guidance and career counsellors should promote it more,” she said. “There are a lot of different types of jobs available.” Her plans for retirement

include spending more time with her loved ones. “I’m going to just travel and spend time with my grandchildren,” said the Rankin resident. One thing she won’t miss is the long drive to work, especially in the winter months. She will work, alongside husband Dan, an artist, on floral arrangements the couple sells with his art at the Cobden Farmers’ Market. Dan recently retired from the Renfrew County Housing Authority and she looks forward to more time with him and her two children and four grandkids. Once she’s had some time to relax she may look at some volunteer work, perhaps sitting on boards for organizations if the opportunity arises. MISSED

Her colleagues will certainly miss her. “She always, even in the stressful times, made us SHERRY HAAIMA/METROLAND laugh,” said township CAO Connie Graham, retired treasurer/deputy clerk for McNab-Braeside, second from right, joins husband Dan Graham and, from Noreen Mellema. left, Coun.

Pumping station site eyed in township News - McNab-Braeside council has passed a motion allowing TransCanada Pipeline access to township lands to assess the feasibility of a potential oil transmission pipeline and pumping station. The company will compensate the township $1,000 for access to its property. The pipeline company, which is proposing to change one of two natural gas pipelines running down the Ottawa Valley into an oil carrier, is seeking land for a pumping station. Likely possibilities are in the eastern end of the township or in the Pakenham area. Meanwhile, the ‘reversal’ of the Enbridge pipeline would help create more job opportunities for Ontario workers, a National Energy Board hearing was told Oct. 18. Hamilton-based TDT Crews Ltd. took ad-

vantage of the hearing to urge Ontarians to support the project because of the economic benefits and job opportunities the project would bring to Ontario workers. The company, which provides work-ready labour crews for infrastructure projects across Canada, submitted a letter of comment to the NEB in support of the project. “Job prospects from Ontario pipeline projects are great for Ontario workers who would otherwise have to travel to Western Canada to apply their skill sets,” said TDT CEO odd Clyde/ “Now these energy projects are right here in our backyard.” Clyde said opposition to the Alberta Oilsands project shouldn’t be allowed to blind local people to the projects benefits for easterners.

More than 10 per cent of water arrears paid Continued from front SUBMITTED

The Royal Canadian Army Cadets 2360 Arnprior congratulate Warrant Officer Rianna Warren on her recent honour of being on hand for the traditional pinning of the first poppy of the 2013 campaign on Canadian Governor General David Johnston. Warren joins Johnston at Rideau Hall, above.

From Arnprior to Rideau Hall

Mayor David Reid agrees that some of the money is gone for good. He also doesn’t know why the money was never collected in the first place. He is also unsure why the town went the collection agency route rather than the much cheaper small claims court. It may have to do with costing staff time, but he said he assumes town staff are using best practices borrowed from other municipalities.

Local cadet honoured to be on hand for presentation of first poppy sherry.haaima@metroland.com

News - It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Warrant officer Rianna Warren, a member of the Royal Canadian Army Cadets 2360 Arnprior and a resident of Constance Bay, is among a handful of cadets chosen to go to Rideau Hall for the presentation of the first poppy to Governor General David Johnston. The national annual poppy campaign opened with the Oct. 10 event, to which only three cadets of each of the three elements - army, air and navy - were invited. “I was very honoured to be selected out of all the cadets,” said the West Carleton Secondary student. She was extremely impressed with Rideau Hall. “I was walking up to the house just looking all around. It was gorgeous,” she said. This is Warren’s fifth year in cadets and it has been an all-around great experience. “Cadets has helped me out in so many ways,” she said.

From friendships and job opportunities to an idea for a career path - the organization is one more young people should consider joining, said Warren. She is currently completing a full-day coop placement with the Ottawa Police Service with an eye on a career with the military police force. Media liaison Patrick Simmonds said the cadets organization is extremely proud of Warren and her accomplishments. In his speech, Johnston thanked those who serve the country so well. “The poppy that we wear each year is a powerful and universal symbol of our promise to our men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces. Never shall we forget what you have done and never shall we shirk our responsibility to do so,” he said. The local poppy campaign begins this weekend with Legion members and volunteers out at various locations with poppy boxes. The campaign wraps up with annual Remembrance Day services Nov. 11, held in Arnprior at the cenotaph in front of Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital.

On the water billing side, an issue that could well have cost many on the last council their seats, 458 accounts were sent to a collection agency, totalling $446,000. R0011949756/0307

WATER BILLS $446,000

The agency has already had some success. It collected $50,000 in the first 15 days. Coun. Lynn Grinstead said she is hearing from constituents who don’t think the process was handled fairly. She was assured by staff that all the proper rules leading up to notifying the collection agency were followed. There was no formal letter telling account holders that a collection agency would contact them. While politicians are adverse to pick fights with voters, Stack isn’t making apologies in the case of those in arrears. “When you are not paying your water bill, I’m paying it for you,” he said. “If you are going two or three years with it on your bill, you have to make arrangements.”

Walter Zadow Public School and the OES (Ontario Electronic Stewardship) hosted a public collection event in September to divert electronic waste from local landfills. Above, a WZPS class gathers in front of the large dumpster that was parked on the school grounds to collect all kinds of e-waste, including MP3 players, cameras, telephones, TVs, VCRs, DVD players, recorders, and radios. All proceeds raised went towards funding for the play structure in the school’s kindergarten yard.

Landfill accepts electronic recyclables awawa to the Redi Recycling network. Redi Recycling, an approved service provider with the Ontario Electronic Stewardship program, is a locally owned and operated family business in the Ottawa Valley. It collects and recycles old electronics such as TVs, stereos, speakers, computers and monitors in 20 locations throughout the Ottawa Valley. Redi Recycling’s mission is “to empower our clients to care

News – The Arnprior landfill is one of four new sites in Renfrew County now accepting electronic waste for recycling. Redi Recycling made the announcement last Thursday in the lead-up to Waste Reduction Week (Oct. 21-27) In a news release, the recycling business welcomed the Arnprior landfill in Braeside, the Ruby Road transfer station in Bonnechere Valley, General Panet High School in Petawawa and Splash Car Care in Pet-

for the Earth’s future through sustainable, environmental and cost-effective initiatives.” The two new Petawawa collection sites are able to accept any Ontario resident’s material, but the Arnprior landfill at 658 River Rd. is only taking items from Arnprior residents (the Ruby Road site is limited to Bonnechere Valley residents). “With waste reduction week coming, the new locations offer more convenient locations for businesses and consumers alike,

to recycle their electronics,” Joe Hall, founder and owner of Redi Recycling, said last week. “We are always looking for and will work with more businesses and municipalities to provide this free and convenient service to the residents of the Ottawa Valley.” To find more depot locations or to contact Redi Recycling, visit www.redirecycling.com.

Council had deferred a decision on whether to turn 4 Russell St., at the corner of William Street, into a small park. A fire last May claimed the home of late Ron and Marion Smith, prompting the family to ask it the small lot be converted into parkland in their honour. They had difficulty finding a buyer and were willing to donate it to the town. Council wanted assurances that the town could do what it wanted with the property, not be handcuffed with a plaque and obliga-

tions should it decide to sell at some point. “While our only desire was to donate the land for use as parkland in memory of our parents, we will agree to remove any covenants and restrictions on the title,” read a statement by Doug Smith. ‘We trust that staff and council will make every attempt to honour our original intentions.” Mayor David Reid was ambivalent throughout the process. He agree with many of Reeve Walter Stack’s arguments against taking it on: the land is small; maintenance in the form of grass cutting and other work will cost the taxpayer; with the CPR rail coming out and a basketball court nearby, the need for more open space in the area is nonexistent. “I agree with Walter,” Reid said. “I don’t

see us taking on this asset for a lot of years, as much as I appreciate it.” It was suggested that the town work with the Smiths to find a buyer. Smith said the town “blocked” a potential sale. “It’d be easy to say yes and do something and than in five years to not keep it as a park,” Reid said. “I don’t think that’d be very honourable.” Parks and recreation director Glenn Arthur said he would never turn down parkland, and could put a small playstructure on the property. The vote tied at three, with Reid among those voting in favour of converting it to a park. Motions are defeated in the event of a tie. Coun. Lyle Anderson was absent.

Real hunters respect wildlife Hunting is a time-honoured past-time in Renfrew County. Despite the rising popularity of animal rights groups and the push of urbanites into this part of the county, thanks to the arrival of the four lanes, hunting still commands a certain respect in the Valley. Hunt camps abound and many people make the annual early November deer hunt a family affair. The involvement of young hunters in the fall rituals have helped ensure they survive. However, with the right to hunt comes a duty to respect the game that is being hunted. That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happened last week when some boors chucked out at least 18 mutilated Canada geese along Usborne Street just west of Arnprior. Even if they were angry golfers, upset at goose poop on their greens, the least they could have done is take the carcasses into the forest and let nature take its course. Instead, they left the dead geese in the ditch along the road for walkers, bicycles and motorists to see. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the type of callousness that antihunters love to see.

It gives them new ammunition in their war against the shooting of cute little animals and birds. Wildlife lovers are already up in arms over the police killing an elk in Ottawa a couple of weeks ago. Hard to understand how it was easy to get close enough to shoot to kill, but not to tranquilize. There are also questions about why a moose was â&#x20AC;&#x153;dispatchedâ&#x20AC;? by authorities in the Eganville area this month. Appears he was too friendly for his own good and paid with his life for it. Another moose has been seen on and off for the past couple of years in McNab and Pakenham areas. Recently he was seen in the area of the uprooted train tracks in the centre of Renfrew. Does that proximity to town mean there is a bullet in his future? We need to show more respect for wildlife if we want our urban neighbours to learn respect for hunting. Want to see hunting banned for good? Then keep up disrespecting wildlife like what was done to the 18 geese in McNab-Braeside last week.

M-B council shows common sense by saying no To the Editor: Once again I am reading nasty no-sense comments re the M-B council with respect to the break with the Arnprior recreation and library bill that was presented to them from Arnprior council. First, the survey that was taken was the only sensible thing to do under the circumstances. If for any reason it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understood then maybe these people should have had someone else read it to them. Second, the numbers that came back represented more than half that did not want to pay for these facilities for themselves or anyone else. Their choice, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their money! The bill for these facilities is more than 6 per cent of the total tax base. That is a lot of money for something when there is no representation or input from the people footing the bill. The library could not or would not provide the names of the people from M-B that use it. The same for the Nick Smith Centre and the lists are obviously bogus with names on multiple times. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think council had any choice but to say no to an

obvious money grab. If you have anything to say, why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you direct it to the Arnprior council. They really should have a look at the record-keeping just for starters and second, have a look at how these facilities are being run. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entirely possible that they may need to cut back on the hours, staff and what they are providing for very little return on their money. There is no one out there that would pay a bill and not know what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for, why they need to pay it or who it is for. Having a library these days is more of a luxury, not a necessity with the number of computers out there. People are not being cut off from these facilities; if they want to use them they can pay for them themselves and not force their next-door neighbour to help foot the bill. I applaud the M-B council for using common sense. Unless Arnprior council can come back with a realistic cost for the use of the library and the Nick Smith Centre, then good for council having enough sense to say no.

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get back to being good neighbours To the Editor: In September I wrote a letter in support of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;user payâ&#x20AC;? system for neighbouring townships to help maintain the cost of recreation and library services in Arnprior because it seemed to be a fair way to resolve the issue; but after watching the debate evolve over the past few weeks, I wanted to write back in to say that we have had a change of heart. While I still think that when we elect politicians we expect them to keep their promises and they should be admired for doing so, it is clear (at least from reading the comments in the editorial section in this paper) that emotions are running high and so many people are passionately in favor of keeping the previous agreement between McNab-Braeside and

Arnprior. Although we should always encourage a healthy, honest and open debate on how our tax dollars are spent, it is time to return our community to a place where we live in harmony and extend grace to one another. A closely knit community that supports its residents with services they need, even if there is an occasional disagreement on how those services are delivered, is worth way more to us than a few extra tax dollars. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restore the previous agreement between McNab-Braeside and get back to being neighbours. Ken Wood McNab-Braeside

The Algonquin Land Claim – Economic Development Robert Potts Algonquins of Ontario

Opinion - Enhancing the economic capacity of the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) is an indispensable element woven throughout the Preliminary Draft Agreement-in-Principle (AIP). From early in the treaty negotiations – and as set out in the Statement of Shared Objectives – the AOO, Canada and Ontario committed to expanding the economic opportunities for Algonquins while also benefitting and promoting general economic and commercial activities throughout the Territory. The finalization of a modern-day Treaty will enrich the Algonquin presence across the Territory, including the nation’s capital, and build upon the Aboriginal presence and vitality within Canada. It will also build a foundation for increased economic opportunities for the AOO, while ensuring the cultural and social fabric of the Algonquin people is maintained and strengthened in years to come. CRITICAL

Together, the land and capital components proposed in the Preliminary Draft AIP will be critical to the future economic prosperity and cultural recognition of the AOO. The benefits of a secure land base and increased financial capacity will provide new investment opportunities as well as the ability to create new Algonquin programs and services, including education, training opportunities and health care initiatives. Such platforms will create key economic opportunities that nurture and respect longstanding cultural and spiritual practices of the Algonquin people, while providing the training and education needed to promote self-sufficiency and success in today’s economy. The Algonquin people will also be equipped with the avenues to contribute to the decision-making process regarding forest management and stewardship. The AOO and Ontario are committed to working cooperatively to main-

Shame on shameless litterbugs

tain support for the existing forest industry, while increasing Algonquin participation in, and benefits from the forestry sector. A Treaty will provide for unparalleled economic development opportunities that will not only benefit the AOO, but will also provide a tremendous benefit to our neighbours living within the Territory. A Treaty will remove the barriers to economic growth created by existing uncertainties and contribute to a more stable social, political and economic environment with greater potential for regional economic development, jobs and growth. The AOO recognize that increasing Algonquin economic capacity is inextricably linked to the broader economic development of Eastern Ontario. As our negotiations move forward, the AOO are already participating in a number of exciting economic development initiatives, including working with: • various private sector proponents and the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines through the Mineral Exploration and Development Protocol Agreement; • Rideau Transit Group as the project lead for the Ottawa Light Rail Transit project to explore the availability and use of Algonquin personnel, equipment and materials; • Canada Lands Company through the CFB Rockcliffe Participation Agreement, which establishes the direct participation and financial interest of the AOO in the development of one of the most desirable and valuable parcels of land in Canada.

Through the Preliminary Draft AIP, the Algonquins of Ontario are united in our commitment to finding “win-win” solutions that will bring economic prosperity to Algonquins and our neighbours alike. This column is the last in a series providing insights into Algonquin history, the foundation for the land claim, elements of the Preliminary Draft AIP and next steps in the journey.

No community is equipped to hand all the demands of a catastrophe. Help your community by preparing for yourself. In the event of an emergency, it is recommended that each family is prepared with a household survival kit; to look after you for at least the first 72 hours. Communities can suffer severe damage or loss of power outages caused by winds or severe storms, flooding, accidents or other acts of violence. If you look after you and your family it creates less of a strain of the community resources. A household survival kit should contain important papers & identification, medication prescriptions, extra keys for your home/car, flashlights & radios (solar or wind-up power recommended), activities for small children, a change of clothing & footwear, water (2 liters per day per person), first aid kit and small amount of cash.

To the Editor: My husband and I own a home on Hurd’s Lake. Between Aug. 26 and 28, we traveled Fraser Road between Lakeview Lane and Burnstown Road, gathering refuse that had been flung from vehicles. I attach photographs of what we found. I was dismayed to learn that there are still some people who have so little regard for their community and the health of the planet that they pitch Pepsi and Budweiser cans and water bottles and Player’s Light packages and

chocolate milk cartons and McDonald’s refuse into the road. I was even more dismayed to find, as I returned from one of my garbage-gathering trips, that someone had thrown a Styrofoam clam-shell and a Tim Hortons cup onto the road. This occurred despite the fact that he (or she) had likely seen me – a small woman in her 50s. All I can say is something that will have no effect on those responsible, although it certainly makes me feel better: Shame on you. Lynn Farquhar-Kirby Hurd’s Lake

A total of 34 vehicles in three classes took park in this year’s Arnprior Fair Board’s Fall Brawl demolition derby Saturday afternoon at the Arnprior Fairgrounds. Before the action began, the enthusiastic crowd voted on the best decorated car and honours went to Kelly St. Michael (above) who proudly showed off his trophy. The six-cylinder class featured 13 vehicles facing off against each other in the pit. Seen in the foreground is Arnprior resident Curtis Haybecker in the Z28 car. Winners in this class were Randy Haybecker in first, Steve Billings in second and James Anderson in third.

The first class up in last Saturday’s Fall Brawl demolition derby was the big eightcyclinder vehicle category. Eight cars were entered in this class and provided a good show for spectators at the Arnprior Fairgrounds.

tat choice, not even during migration. Thus, the Great Lakes – St. Lawrence Forest Region should have little to offer them as they work their way south. Yet, these northern birds are seasonally part of our fauna, and the reason for that is simple. In earlier times much of the local forest was removed and converted to agricultural land. By the autumn, the crops such as corn that grew in those fields have been harvested, and often the ground has been tilled in preparation for next year’s harvest. During migration, northern birds passing through see treeless fields as habitat not dissimilar to the flat open tundra on which they spent their summer. So they drop in to rest and refuel before moving farther south. Seeds from plants uprooted by tractors and invertebrates thrust up to the surface by the tilling machines are the foods gleaned by the birds that visit the fields. With that in mind, perhaps the signs that are prominently posted on barns and fences could be altered. They might say: “If you watched a pipit today, thank a farmer!” The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

Lynx missing from Valley home News – The OPP are asking the public to be on the lookout for a female Siberian lynx that was stolen from a home near Eganville. The animal was taken from its cage a day or two prior to the Thanksgiving weekend. The wild cat is beige, about 40 pounds and has a black-tipped tail. The owners treated the animal as a pet, but it is said to be strange around most people. 12 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, October 24, 2013

Theories about the case suggest the animal could have been stolen for resale as an exotic animal or just freed by someone opposed to keeping such animals caged. The family say they received the lynx as a rescue. Anyone with information about the incident should call the OPP or Crime Stoppers at 1800-222-8477.

Citizen’s tip helps OPP nab impaired driver News - A Horton man is facing impaired driving charges after a concerned citizen contacted the OPP about a possible impaired driver. At about 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17, the accused was observed driving his vehicle erratically on Burnstown Road. He was unable to stay in his driving lane

SHERRY HAAIMA/METROLAND

OPP officers investigate the death of a motorcyclist in the Highway 17-Campbell Drive intersection. No announcement has been made yet whether charges will be laid.

Township, county urged to ask MTO for lights Continued from front

Frederick has emailed Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MPP John Yakabuski, McNab-Braeside mayor Mary Campbell and township councillors, and County of Renfrew Warden Peter Emon asking for their support in his campaign to have lights installed, or at the very least better caution signs on the highway. He was stopped on Campbell Drive in the early afternoon of Oct. 11 waiting to turn left onto the highway. Another motorist coming from the other side of Campbell Drive was obviously going right across the highway, so had the right-of-way. That gave Frederick a front-row seat to the horrific crash that took the life of 57-year-old Douglas Earhart of Oshawa. He said the driver of the Honda that hit the motorcycle obviously didn’t see him coming when he began his crossing of the highway. He tried to swerve, but it was too late, he added. It’s a dangerous intersection now it is so close to where traffic funnels from four lanes to two, he noted. “How many people have been injured or have to die before something is done at this intersection? There have been too many deaths in this area.” Frederick said he is aware that within the next few years an overpass will be built at the intersection as the four-laning expands west from Arnprior. “But until then, I respectfully request that the McNab-Braeside council, with the help of the Warden for Renfrew County and John Yakabuski, MPP Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, approach the Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Minister of Transportation Glen Murray.” He suggests it’s time to install a temporary traffic light and include some heavy duty flashing lights like those seen at deer or moose crossings. He noted that lights at the second and third entrances off Highway 17 at Renfrew have

helped minimize crashes like the one on Oct. 11. He adds that lights would also help during the upcoming construction period when the highway’s four lanes are extended. The addition of caution signs on the highway warning motorists to slow down as they approach the intersection would also be useful, he says. He is asking McNab-Braeside council to address the “urgent matter” at its Nov. 5 meeting. Frederick admits he doesn’t know the crash statistics for the intersection, but does know that everyone who tries to cross or turn onto Highway 17 is “taking their life into their own hands when crossing there.” He points out that OPP officers often park at the intersection to deter and catch speeders, so obviously realize it is a problem area. “How much could it cost for safety vs. how much is a life worth,” he asked in his letter to local authorities. Renfrew OPP community services officer Janice Sawbridge agreed that drivers need to be cautious in the area and many need to slow down more as they come off the four lanes. However, if a township lobby has failed to get a light at Highway 17 and Calabogie Road, it’s not likely one for Campbell Drive will succeed. There is more traffic coming off Calabogie Road-McLean Drive than Campbell Drive, she noted. She explained that OPP officers often monitor traffic at Campbell Drive mainly because it is a safe place to pull off the highway. Sawbridge said the good fall weather has meant more motorcycles than normal on local roads. Motorists do tend to not see them sometimes, she said, urging them to always alert for the bikes. And motorcyclists need to be extra vigilant too, she added, noting they have almost no protection if they get involved in a crash.

News - Michael Barber is on board as Renfrew County’s new media relations-grants co-ordinator. The 40-yearold Golden Lake resident succeeds Bruce McIntyre, who occupied the position from 2003 (when the job was first created) until this year. Barber, who started his new job Oct. 8, attended his first committee meeting Oct. 15. That was the development and property committee session in Calabogie. Barber reports to human resources director Bruce Beakley, who says the position is changing as far as communications activities. More video presentations are

planned for services, recruitment and internal communications, while Barber will continue to produce news releases and photos for the region’s media. Beakley says the grants coordination part of the job will also remain pivotal, given the county’s success rate of receiving grants and facilitating the same for the county’s 17 member municipalities.

New trade deal good for agriculture, forestry: MP News – The newly signed “historic” free trade agreement with Europe will be a boon for all Canadians, including people in this area, says Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. In a news release last week, Gallant maintained the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) finalized on Oct. 18 has many benefits for Canadians. “This historic agreement with the European Union is a big win for

workers, businesses and families here in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke and across Canada,” she said. “Deeper trade with the European Union will bring good jobs, economic growth and greater long-term prosperity to workers and businesses in our communities, including cattle and pork farmers, forestry workers, and science and technology companies.” The European Union (EU) is Canada’s second-largest trading partner, after the United States, and the

world’s largest integrated economy, with more than 500 million consumers and a GDP of $17 trillion. CETA is by far Canada’s most ambitious trade initiative, broader and deeper in scope than the historic North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), said Gallant. Under CETA, Canadian farmers will have increased duty-free access to the EU marketplace, in the form of 80,000 tons of pork products and 65,000 tons of beef products. These limits represent a huge increase from

the current duty-free quotas: 6,000 tons for pork producers and 15,000 tons for beef producers, she pointed out. The deal helps the forestry sector too, said Gallant. “Canadian manufacturers currently face an average tariff of 1.2 per cent, with some products taxed up to 10 per cent. CETA eliminates all tariffs on forestry and lumber products into the EU, giving Canadians access to a large, and rapidly growing, market for wood products in the EU.”

Gallant said that in addition to tariff elimination, CETA provides improved access to EU markets for Canadian goods and services; greater certainty, transparency and protection for investments; and new opportunities in EU procurement markets. “Canada and the EU currently enjoy a well-established relationship in research, science and technology,” she said. “CETA will expand and enhance this relationship, providing new investment, partnership, and development opportunities.”

Canada-EU trade deal cheeses off some farmers

News – Canada’s free trade agreement with Europe is not going over well with all farmers, especially those with dairy cattle. In a news release late last week, the president of Renfrew County National Farmers Union (NFU) says the federal government “sold out” its farmers in the free trade agreement with Europe. The NFU is calling for the reintroduction

of subsidies in some sectors to allow Canadian farmers to compete fairly with their European counterparts. Tony Straathof said the pending agreement allows for the import of 30,000 tonnes of artisan cheese. Although it is only four per cent of Canada’s cheese consumption, it is 50 per cent of Cana-

da’s speciality cheese production, he noted. “That in itself will have a huge impact on Canadian farmers.” The trade deal also allows for the importation of up to a billion dollars of Canadian meat (beef and pork), only if produced and processed to European standards, said Straathof. “This will require millions of dollars in costs

for segregation, labelling and plant upgrades, which negates any trade benefit to those producers.” Straathof said the next step in the trade deal process is ratification by all provinces. “If the provinces endorse this deal, it is hoped producers and processors can remain competitive.”

Community Living-CUPE deal reached News – A sometimes bitter dispute involving Community Living in the north end of Renfrew County appears to be over. After a bargaining session that lasted into the early hours, representatives of CUPE Local 5088 reached a tentative agreement with Community Living Upper Ottawa Valley (CLUOV) last week. The agreement, if ratified by members, will be the first contract negotiated with CLUOV since workers joined the CUPE in 2011. The union represents 76 developmental service workers who support some 150 adults with developmental disabilities in the communities of Head, Clara and Maria; Laurentian Hills; Deep River; Petawawa; Laurentian Valley; and Pembroke. The deal does not directly affect employees of Community Living Renfrew County South

in Arnprior and Renfrew. Those employees are not unionized. CUPE said that details of the agreement will not be released until its members have reviewed them and put the contract to a vote for ratification. Last month, the long impasse in negotiations prompted CUPE to send out a news release saying the dispute was threatening the well-being of clients. After talks broke down Aug. 19 between the two sides, CUPE members voted to provide their bargaining committee with a strong mandate to “take any and all actions deemed necessary by the committee to secure a fair agreement.” At that time, the union said one of the key issues is management’s proposal to cut back sick leave far below the standard in the sector.

Employees rely on sick leave to get healthy their first contract ever since. “Our members understand that the challengand return to work providing much needed supes facing the sector are not of CLUOV’s makports, says CUPE. “Families do not want us caring for their ing.

FATALITIES

Sadly, say OPP, the two road fatalities involved a 21-month old child and his 7 year-old brother, both of whom were killed after being struck by a vehicle in Parry Sound Oct. 11. A motorcycle rider was killed just west of Arnprior on Highway 17 just prior to the long weekend.

Baring it all in the 2014 Nudes of Mississippi Mills calendar Kelly Kent kkent@perfprint.ca

Community – You’ve likely heard of Purple Heart award, given as a high honour to war veterans killed or wounded in action, but you’ve probably never heard of the Purple Potato awards, which are given out for a whole different kind of bravery. Imagine standing in a public place, posing in silly ways in front of a photographer you’ve only just met – that might be slightly embarrassing, sure. Now imagine doing the same thing, only stark naked and with nothing to hide behind – that could be downright mortifying, and it is specifically that kind of bravery that wins you a Purple Potato Award. At the unveiling of the third and final Nudes of Mississippi Mills calendar on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at Almonte Old Town Hall, three brave souls were given purple potatoes, some more risqué than others, to wear around their necks after their outstanding feats of bravery in the nude. “It takes a special kind of person to bare it all for all to see, especially for such an ex-

tended period of time,” said Fern Martin, one of the members on the calendar’s committee, laughing about the fate of the models who will have their naked portrait hung on their neighbours’, friends’ and family’s walls for 12 months. The Nudes of Mississippi Mills calendar first came about three years ago, a calendar that inspired so much community spirit that its creators took the idea and ran with it, releasing two subsequent calendars in the following years. Robin Andrews of Unposed Photography, a local studio, works her magic behind the camera while her panel of volunteer models strip down and pose for what could be called a tribute to uninhibition and only slight mortification – but it’s all for a good cause. The calendar was started as a fundraiser for various charities, including the Communities in Bloom initiative, of which Martin is a member. Five per cent of the proceeds from the sale of each calendar is put towards a program of the model’s choosing. Every year the reveal is attended by many local residents, waiting to see which of their fellow community mem-

The 2014 edition of the Nudes of Mississippi Mills calendar will be the last ever created, but it’s certainly going out with a bang. bers has taken it all off for the benefit of charity. This year, there were some interesting surprises. Featured as the model for the month of June, Mississippi Mills town Coun. Paul Watters takes to the streets of Clayton

for his usual routine of sweeping the streets, only this time, he appears to have forgotten to get dressed. “I’m not going to say I’m not embarrassed,” Watters said, “but I did it all to benefit the charities and to raise funds

for the organizations. I’m just trying to think of what good it’s doing.” Watters chose to donate his portion of the proceeds to the Communities in Bloom initative, as did several of the other models, including Joel Haslam of CTV Ottawa’s Regional Contact. Much to the delight of his teenaged daughter, who was “absolutely mortified” by his appearance in the first two calendars, the famous Rob Riendeau of theHumm did not get any exposure in this year’s edition. Afterwards, when all the photos had been revealed, people flocked to talk to the now-famous models while they enjoyed pieces of a cake shaped to look like a very scantily clad woman, which was donated by Ottawa Valley Cakes. The models all had generally good things to say about their experiences though, saying that Andrews made it fun. Unfortunately, the 2014 edition will be the last year for the calendar, after the team decided to retire the idea. “It’s been a good run,” said Martin. “We had an absolute blast doing it, but it’s a time to

let a good thing go.” A team of women worked diligently all year long to complete each calendar. Martin spearheaded much of the organization along with Bonnie Hawkins; Andrews captured the magic of each photo; Wendy Moenig was the resident graphic designer; and Tiffany MacLaren, the town’s community economic and cultural co-ordinator, was also part of the main team. In smaller but ultimately important roles were Stephanie Bebris-Monachan, who edited the photos for quality and tastefulness, and Fay Devlin and Rona Fraser, who edited and proofed the entirety of the publication. Calendars are sold for $20. Local stores, such as Alice’s Village Café in Carp and Mill Street Books in Almonte, are carrying the calendars, along with new stores in Ottawa. Martin said she encourages people to pick up their calendar while they’re still around. “It’s sad that it’s come to an end,” she said. “But I think it’s something that we’ll be talking about in the community for many, many years to come.”

Olivia McIntyre led ADHS with 14 points, while Sidney Friske added a dozen. The loss was RCI’s first of the season. FIRST LOSS FOR OPEONGO

The Redmen also handed Opeongo its first loss of the season the week before, with a 35-26 win behind Paula Meek’s 11 points.

Arnprior finishes its season with games against Mckenzie (3-3) and General Panet (3-5). BACK ON TRACK

Sports - With the Farmer’s Almanac forecasting a snowy, cold winter for Ontario, participating snowmobilers can catch a big savings break by purchasing 2014 Seasonal Snowmobile Trail Permits earlier than usual. The not-for-profit Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) is pleased with the province’s recent decision to approve a new fee of $180 for 2014 Seasonal Permits bought on or before Nov. 1. This limited offer is only available for permit transactions completed online at www.ofsc.on.ca. “The $180 Nov. 1 option for the 2014 season represents a 30 per cent saving off the regular seasonal fee of $260, providing Ontario snowmobilers with exceptional value for the coming winter,” said OFSC president Brenda Welsh.

“It’s our way of saying ‘thank-you’ to loyal buyers for their support and to welcome them back to OFSC trails this season.” The OFSC is confident that the $180-Nov. 1 permit option will also provide a significant incentive for new participants and former riders to discover the fun of today’s snowmobiling for themselves this winter. Available this season on or before Nov. 1, the $180 permit is a transitional step and part of a major, ongoing review of its business model for trail operations by the OFSC. At their recent annual general meeting in September, OFSC member clubs approved a recommendation called A Framework For Change. The new plan outlines a comprehensive direction, including more permit types with varied fees, allocating more money

where it snows each winter, and promoting more efficient trail operations across the province. “Like many others, the snowmobiling industry was impacted by the global economic downturn following 2008. That’s why the OFSC continues to explore alternatives for doing business smarter and more effectively,” said OFSC executive director Paul Shaughnessy. “We also think it’s important to keep snowmobiling as accessible as possible for Ontario families as well as for visitors from outside the province. “So we’re working on a variety of other enhancements for consideration at our 2014 AGM next September, but now, at least for the coming season, our customers have a new permit choice.”

Packers win streak reaches five Sean Marcellus

Sports - The Arnprior Packers continue to turn heads in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League, improving to 8-2 on the season with victories over the Stittsville Royals and Gananoque Islanders. On Wednesday, Oct. 16 the Packers welcomed the Royals to the Nick Smith Centre and came away with a hard-fought 3-1 victory. After a scoreless first period, the Packers came out firing early in the second as Packers Player of the Week Patrick McGrath scored his fourth of the season after taking a pass from captain John McLean. Before the period ended, McLean found leading scorer Damian Armstrong who scored his eighth goal of the season on the power-play to give Arnprior a 2-0 lead. Former Packer Eric Malloy cut the lead in half in the third period scoring on a two-on-one break. That was as close as the Royals would get, as McLean clinched the win for the Packers, scoring his sixth goal of the year on a partial breakaway with just over two minutes remaining. Erik Miksik was busy in the Packers net as he stopped 39 of 40 shots, winning his seventh straight start. PACKERS SCORING SUMMARY

His PeeWee Packers team took on the Central Hockey League team between periods of a home game against the Cornwall Colts. The Packers won by about six goals, but in the Stallions’ defence there was no checking allowed.

Abby Rampton wins a lineout for ADHS.

Sports - The Arnprior District High School Girls senior rugby team improved its regular season record to 5-0 by defeating Mackenzie High School of Deep River 72-0 Oct. 15. ADHS used rapid ball movement to exploit gaps in Mackenzie’s defence to devastating effect. Some team members travelled to Rockland last Friday to compete in the Rockland 7s tournament. Results were mixed with Arnprior’s final record on the day being two wins and three losses. This was the first exposure to 7s for all of the players involved, so it was a valuable learning experience, notes Arnprior coach Glenn Wallace. The Upper Ottawa Valley high school rugby playoffs are set for today (Thursday) and Oct. 31, both a 3 p.m. with Arnprior hosting two games at Dochart Park if they keep winning.

THURSDAY OCTOBER 24, 2013 The modern-day Canadian Guitar Quartet performs at a recent private house concert at group member Philip Candelaria’s home in Arnprior. From left are Candelaria, Julien Bisaillon, Louis Trepanier and Bruno Roussel. Two retired members of the CGQ will rejoin Candelaria and Trepanier to team up with the Austrian/German Salzburger Gitarrenquartett to form the G8 for a Canadian tour that includes a performance Nov. 1 in Arnprior. Tickets are available at the Arnprior Book Shop and at the door. PHOTOS BY SHERRY HAAIMA/METROLAND

Classical guitar great Philip Candelaria calls Arnprior home Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

Arts – If you were walking along a quiet Gary Street on a Friday night in early October, you may have heard an unusual and lovely sound coming from one of the homes. Classical guitarist Philip Candelaria has been making his home in Arnprior for the past few years. Founder of the Canadian Guitar Quartet (CGQ), an internationally-renowned ensemble, and a performer and music instructor for many years, Candelaria has only good things to say about the town that has become a welcoming home for he and wife Iris and daughter Valentina. On that Friday night, Candelaria hosted a private concert in his home, inviting friends and community members to enjoy an evening of impressive guitar performances courtesy of the CGQ. While Candelaria actually bought his home at the end of 2008, it wasn’t until the past few years that he and his family really settled in. “I’d been commuting to Ottawa from Sudbury for years to work with the quartet,” he said. Then Iris and Valentina spent a year in Chile and he travelled to see them. “We looked around for a couple of years and Arnprior was my favourite place,” said Candelaria. Since getting established, the family has grown to love Arnprior.

Philip Candelaria is thrilled to bring the G8 - a guitar octet made up of the Canadian Guitar Quartet paired with the Austrian/ German Salzburger Gitarrenquartett, to Arnprior Nov. 1. “It’s been great getting to know the town and meeting new people,” said Candelaria. Candelaria met his wife Iris in Chile, where his daughter Valentina was born. “They both love Arnprior as much as I do,” he said. His decision to live here means music lovers are in for a treat, as Arnprior is one of only a few places to host a performance of the G8 (guitar8), a guitar octet that pairs the CGQ with

the Austrian/German Salzburger Gitarrenquartett. The Nov. 1 show at Grace St. Andrew’s United Church promises to be a fine evening with two premiere pieces one of which is Canadian. Candelaria obtained a Bachelor of Music in music history from the University of British Columbia; taking private guitar lessons with Bruce Clausen. In 1979 Candelaria received a Professional Study Award from the British Columbia Arts Council and then a Canada Council grant to study under Aaron Shearer at the Peabody Conservatory, Johns Hopkins University, where he completed graduate training in 1980. Candelaria grew up in Vancouver and spent much of his guitar teaching career in Sudbury. He taught at Capilano College in B.C. and since 1980 was a guitar instructor at Laurentian University and Cambrian College in Sudbury. In 2003 he became an instructor at the University of Ottawa. He regularly conducts master classes and adjudicates for festivals in Canada and abroad. The idea for the G8 all started a few years ago when Patrick Roux, one of the original CGQ members, encountered an Austrian/German guitar quartet “He thought it was really good,” said Candeleria. “Somehow it came up we should do something together.” The plan was to do a few pieces together and several in their original quartets.

R0202148199

“It turned out the musical chemistry was so good we ended up only doing a few pieces on our own. It’s the third time the octet has travelled across Canada. The first European tour was in 2006, with the G8 coming to Canada the following year in 2007 “Then we decided in 2009 to do another set of exchanges,” he said. This third tour, with the European one completed in 2012, has been the most successful to date. The Canadian tour consists of 10 shows. There will also be some outreach work along the way, in schools and at other organizations. Candelaria, tour director, has been busy preparing – booking rental vehicles, firming up travel plans and getting everything in order. The venues range from smaller ones like Grace St. Andrew’s United Church to quite a bit larger, including a 1,000-seat hall in Barrie. He founded the Canadian Guitar Quartet in 1999 and said after years as a teacher and soloist, he enjoys playing in a group. “When you play in a group, you listen so much better,” he said. “It’s completely different, it opens up your ears.” How do the European G8 concerts differ from the Canadian ones? “You feel you’re in the old world,” he said. “We’re usually in old churches or concert halls.” See CANDELARIA Page 33

Singer to feature new tracks in Burnstown Candelaria Continued from Page 31

Events - Tin Star, the latest album from critically Singer-songwriter Lindi Ortega will perform songs from her latest album, Tin Star, at a concert in Burnstown Sunday, Oct. 27. Ortega, who is from Toronto but now lives in Nashville, will perform at the Neat Coffee Shop with Northcote at 8 p.m. Her new record, released by Last Gang Records, follows the 2011 Juno Award-nominated and Polaris Music Prize long-listed debut album Little Red Boots, and her 2012 Polaris long-listed album Cigarettes & Truckstops. Billboard called Cigarettes and Truckstops “heartfelt and mood-inducing, a uniquely bluesy twist on pre-outlaw country” while The New York Times praised Ortega for having “untamed instincts, but classic bones.” Produced by Grammy-nominated Dave Cobb, Tin Star demonstrates the unique voice and songwriting that Ortega has come to be known for and is largely inspired by her adopted Nashville home. “It’s always my goal to raise the bar with each record I put out. I have witnessed so much talent living in Nashville that has inspired me to push myself even further,” she explains. Several songs on the album touch on the classics of country music. Loneliness, unrequited love, crumbling rela-

tionships and primal desire pepper Tin Star and give Ortega a chance to let her contemporary twist on traditional country shine through. Hard As This speaks to difficult relationships, how they often seem to be more trouble than they’re worth, and the feeling of giving all you have and it still not being enough. While I Want You takes the dark undertones that Ortega’s music is known for and explores the dark side of desire and the need to be bad to get what you want. MATT MAYS IN BURNSTOWN

The Ortega concert will cap off an exciting weekend of concerts at the Neat Coffee Shop. Rocker Matt Mays is returning on Saturday, Oct. 26 with special guest Adam Baldwin. Mays was a big hit when playing the venue in July. He recently released his fifth album, Coyote, He has won numerous ECMAs and been nominated for four JUNO Awards. ‘Mysticssippi’ blues man Harry Manx will play an 8 p.m. concert in Burnstown Friday, Oct. 25. Manx, who has just released the album Om Suite Ohm, has played the Neat stage 14 times. His concert is suited to an intimate space provided there.

Candelaria’s love affair with the guitar began as a child. His father was an English professor at Simon Fraser University. His sabbatical project involved going to Spain to translate poetry. “So he took the whole family to Spain for a year,” he said. To better grasp the language, Candelaria’s mother took guitar lessons. She brought her impressionable 11year-old son along. While the language and indeed the instrument did not come as easily to his mom, the youngster was hooked. “I took to it so fast,” he said. The instructor was impressed and before the family returned to Canada, he presented the young musician with a handmade guitar. “I went back to Canada and I just stayed with it,” he said. And oh so many are glad he did. Tickets for the Nov. 1, 7:30 p.m. show at Grace St. Andrew’s United Church cost $25 general/ $15 for students and are available at the Arnprior Book Shop and at the door. Visit www.guitar8.com.

Bake table had several purposes in Depression era kitchen Lifestyle - Even at a young age, I was aware of the sameness of all the farm kitchens in Northcote. There was always a creton couch, although the shapes varied. Some had one end curved upwards, so a pillow wasn’t needed to rest your head. Our couch lay flat and there wasn’t really a mattress on it.

Rather, several layers of quilts protected you from the coil springs, and this couch was where the farmer put his weary head after his noon dinner for a few minutes rest before he headed back out to the fields or the barns. And every kitchen, of course, had a cook stove. Some people just called it, simply, the range. But Mother called our big lumbering iron stove, The Oval. The other constant in a farm kitchen was the bake table. This differed greatly from the big pine table that stretched out to set at least 12 people when necessary. The bake table was much smaller. Longer than it was wide, it had a small drawer at one end. Ours had a white porcelain top and it stood several inches taller than the big table we ate our meals at every day. Why it was called the bake table, I have no idea. Because Mother never once baked on it. Perhaps it was because this is where pies were set to cool off, and freshly made loaves of bread waited to be wrapped in split-open brown paper bags saved from orders from Briscoe’s General Store. The little drawer, much longer than it was wide, held our

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

supply of flourbag tea towels, neatly folded, and ironed, of course. The bake table sat close to the back door, but unless there were pies and freshly baked bread spread out on it, Mother liked to keep it bare. And heaven forbid that you should put a wet mitt, a school bag, or anything else that would leave a spot on the shiny white porcelain. Mother kept the bake table spotlessly clean, and when company was expected, it was wiped with a wet dish cloth whether it needed it or not, and then a little white square table cloth was put on it, kitty-cornered, and if one had survived the season, a bright red geranium plunked down in the middle! The bake table had another use too. When company overflowed, and the old pine table couldn’t hold another soul, and extra seating was needed, the bake table was put to use.

It was moved out from the wall and this is where the youngest of us ate our meals, well away from the kitchen table and the company. The little table could only seat four people ... one at each end, and one on each side. I didn’t much care for eating at the bake table. It removed me from the joyous activity surrounding the big table, but as well, because the bake table was so much higher, we had to take pillows off the beds to sit on, or else our chins would be in our dinner plates! Being the youngest in our family, I was always doomed to eat at the bake table with other young cousins. My cousin Ronny loved to eat at the bake table. Then he didn’t have to watch his table manners, and it wasn’t unusual for him to take off his plate anything he didn’t like and put it in his pants’ pocket, and dispose of it after the meal. The kitchen was the big-

gest room in our old log house, and there were no built-in cupboards. Dishes were kept in the Backto-the-Wall cupboard, and pots and pans either sat on top of the warming closet of the Findlay Oval, or stored in it. The bake table was the perfect place, when we hosted the Saturday Night House party, for the 11 quart baskets of sandwiches, and the slab cakes brought in by the neighbours for the late-night lunch. When you walked by you could smell the egg salad sandwiches, and the maple icing on the slab cakes. Mother loved the bake table. I think now it was because it had a porcelain top and wasn’t made of pine like most of the furniture in that old log house. Mother liked any piece of furniture that wasn’t made of pine ... she once said pine rhymed with poverty. I was too young to know the meaning behind the comment. Sometimes Mother sat at the bake table. She would put her sewing basket on it, and do some mending. Or she would spread out the Philadelphia Enquirer. It was considered her table. And all of us, and that included Father, knew better than to put as much as a pencil on it.

Busy, busy time of year at the Arnprior Legion JANET TOBIO Arnprior Legion

1050 O’BRIEN RD RENFREW

Community – October is only half over and it’s been full tilt for the volunteers at the Arnprior Legion. Dinner, luncheons, hamburger Fridays, a euchre tournament, Saturday entertainment with dinner, full house jam sessions and the Golden Valley Seniors 30th anniversary celebration. Wow, it’s been busy. The Legion still has the monthly breakfast and, of course, the annual Halloween Dance, always a great success. Tickets

available in advance or at the door. November is knocking at the door, but we’re ready. We have a Reviewing Officer and a Silver Cross Mother Representative for the Remembrance Day Ceremony. Thanks to all who took the time to send or call with suggestions and nominations. We really appreciate the community input. The service, of course, will be Nov. 11 at the cenotaph at 1100 hours (11 a.m.). Although it is a Monday work and school day, we’re hoping many will take a few minutes out of their busy day to join us in paying tribute to those who paid the ultimate

sacrifice serving our country. The troops from Petawawa will be on parade as well as the pipe band, and a heritage plane will pay tribute with a fly-past. Lunch will be served at the Legion after the parade. November brings another parade, of course. Contact the Legion if you’d like to take part in the Santa Claus parade Saturday, Nov. 30. It’s always the last Saturday in November. I suggest you keep this article so you don’t forget the dates.

EDUCATION

iPad pilot project at McNab Kathryn Gonzalez’ Grade 3 class at McNab Public School is part of an Renfrew County public school board Information and Communications Technology (ICT) department pilot project. The students will each use a iPad mini that has education software and apps such as Explain Everything, Popplets and iWordQ. The iPads will be used as a learning tool to increase student engagement throughout the school year. JAKE DAVIES/SUBMITTED

School board plan guides future of technology in the classroom News – The Renfrew County public school board’s Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Plan will shape the future of classroom technology across the Ottawa Valley for years to come. The school board’s ICT plan is the vision for the future developed by a variety of stakeholders and experts in education and information and communication technology meeting the goals of the Ministry of Education and the International Society for Technology in Education. “We live in an age where technology is advancing at an ever increasing rate and we need to ensure that our ICT plan has the ability to keep pace,” said school board vice-chair and ICT committee co-chair David Shields. “Although we are a small rural board, our students, parents

and community expect and deserve a forward-thinking and aggressive board that is determined to provide the best equipment, services and facilities to meet the needs of our school system.” The plan will allow Renfrew County public board students to take a provincial lead in technology by providing a blueprint for how technology will be used to support student success. “Through the initiatives outlined in the ICT Plan, we continue to not only keep our IT infrastructure current but also to enable our system to support effective pedagogical practices and efficient services,” said the board’s instruction technology leader Steve Blok. In 2010, the school board engaged in an ambitious plan to further develop its information technology infrastructure and vision for technology use. The goal was to create a reliable and stable backbone for the

education system, which would allow for improved access to resources and to further the board’s goal of developing a robust and modern learning and working environment. “Since then the board has crossed major stepping stones by upgrading the Wide Area Network and introducing full coverage Wi-Fi in all of our buildings, which allows the system to move forward in leaps and bounds,” said manager of information technology Roger Chenier. The new ICT Plan will take the school board into Phase two and through the next three years of technological growth, as the board invests $4.3 million over that time in to new and enhanced resources providing its schools with leading edge technology. The ICT Plan is available for viewing and download on the board website at www.rcdsb.on.ca.

The Ontario Energy Board announced last week that prices are rising about 3 per cent or $4 on an average residential line. The new prices will apply to most households and small businesses, as well as to the off-peak (7 p.m. to 7 a.m. weekdays and all day on weekends), mid-peak (11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays) and on-peak (7-11 a.m., 5-7 p.m. weekdays) times. Most Ontario households use about two-thirds of their power during off-peak hours. The Ontario Energy Board reviews electricity prices twice each year based on updated cost estimates. Estimates for the coming year include more generation from sources including renewables along with a higher market price for natural gas.

The Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce and RBC presented $1,000 to Arnprior District High School recently. The donation, part of the Renfrew County Educational Enrichment Fund, will be presented as a bursary to a graduating student. GACC president Wes Schnob, left, Jackie Laughlin of RBC, and ADHS principal Neil Farmer are on hand for the presentation.

News - The Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA) is urging area business to join the organization so they can be included on next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s road map. The association introduced a tiered membership structure earlier this year, offering those who do not consider themselves typical tourism businesses a chance to benefit from membership. The two new membership tiers are Allied and Artisan. Membership fees for Allied and Artisan members are $95 and $60 respectively and provide a number of benefits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Allied membership category is for any business, individual or organization that provides services to tourism businesses,â&#x20AC;? explained OVTA communications co-ordinator Lauren McIllfaterick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, grocery stores,

October 21-25, 2013

A Week Dedicated to Hometown Business Canada’s vibrant economic development can be attributed in great part to the energy of entrepreneurs and the businesses that they start up. Their ability to quickly innovate to keep abreast of market changes and create employment has made small businesses one of the driving forces of our economy. In light of these contributions, the theme of this year’s Small Business Week is: “You’re the power behind the Canadian economy, let’s share the energy!” The focus will be on this energy that drives all entrepreneurs who have moved from dreaming to reality by creating their own business. This week will also recognize personal efforts as well as the importance of financing and consultation in bringing innovative ideas to life. This annual event began rather modestly in British Columbia, but quickly picked up steam over the years. Today it is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate entrepreneurial spirit across the country. Organized by the Business Development Bank of Canada, with the support of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, National Business Week continues to pay tribute to small and medium size businesses and the significant contributions they make to the nation’s labour market. “You’re the power behind the Canadian economy!” is the message. Behind every great success is an original idea. Canadian entrepreneurs are experts when it comes to finding the energy and momentum needed to turn these ideas into a profitable reality. Intrigued? Perhaps there’s a budding entrepreneur inside you who’s just waiting to make his or her mark on the Canadian economy.

Zombies invade Carp museum

Diefenbunker offers hilarious, horrific adventure for the living

Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

News – A band of hipsters in skinny jeans and bookish glasses gathers at the Diefenbunker guardhouse gate, antsy to take part in something called Incident at the Bunker: A Zombie Adventure. Few could have guessed that by tour’s end they would be armed to the hilt with Nerf guns firing wildly in all directions at the marauding undead that were bent on a brains-gorging feast. And yet that’s what happened. Dunt-dunt-dunt da! The folks at Diefenbunker: Canada’s Cold War Museum, in collaboration with The Haunted Walk of Ottawa, put together the Halloween-themed tour that seamlessly weaves entertainment and education. Participants learn the standard stuff – former bunker built to withstand five-mega ton nuclear bomb, could hold 535 select people, 4,000 pound door, etc. – but that’s just filler for the frightful fun found along the way. Here’s the set up - according to a press release promoting the event in Carp. “On a dark and stormy night in October of 1992, a group of scientists gathered in the depths of the Diefenbunker in the hopes of making the latest scientific breakthrough. The terrifying event that happened next has never been disclosed to the public – until now – 20 years later. Using the latest in time-travel technology, we will journey back and discover the bunker’s most shocking secret.” Dunt-da! A tour guide donning a black frock and, oddly, a lantern straight out of a Dickens story,

This zombie capture on camera at the Diefenbunker is obviously suffering from headache. But that will not stop its lust for human brains. leads the group of 20-somethings to the Butler Hut for briefing. “I’d really like to apologize to any of you who were here last year, or lost loved ones here last year,” he says. “But we’ve really improved things for this year.” The excellently written script is hilarious throughout. For instance, before walking down the 378-foot blast tunnel the guide introduces a stern plainclothes guard in dark glasses. “He’s two days from retirement,” he said,

sounding the opposite of ominous. Many giggled and predicted the guard may share the fate of a red shirt on Star Trek. The group explored the many government rooms and winding passageways while hearing of the strange events that took place the day the bunker ceased operations. Just inside the 14inch solid steal entryway door, a Beta-like video message from a scientist is played, her last known correspondence. In the medical room where an autopsy was performed on a soldier infected by a mysterious contamination on that fateful day two decades ago, two decaying bodies illicit “Gross” and “That’s disgusting” from a few less-than-sympathetic tour takers. The tension would build gradually yet noticeably. More zombies would appear suddenly or were spotted on screens – dragging themselves relentlessly down nearby hallways. An intrepid reporter who tagged along for

So much for the innocence of youth. All ages of the undead were intent on consuming the brains of paying clients of the museum. the tour – which felt more like an episode of Scooby-Doo - confronted one of the monsters. What is it you want with these people? “Augghhhh!!!!” The danger mounted to the point that every member of the group was given a task meant to defend the whole. In the Bank of Canada vault – built to protect the gold as, presumably, millions of Canadians melt under nuclear fallout – a red light added to the creepiness while a pile of Nerf guns with bullets of specially-made serum were conveniently located between the group and a mob of zombies. It was not a happy ending. More tours take place on Oct. 26, 27, and Nov. 2. They last about 75 minutes. Tickets are $18.75 for adults, $16.75 for students and $10.75 for children.

Ensure a pet-friendly Halloween Ian Stupp Pet Talk

Lifestyle - Most children and adults look forward to Halloween fun, costumes and trick-or-treating. But this particular holiday can prove to be a stressful and potentially hazardous time for your beloved pets. Here are some tips to keep your animals safe and sound during this Halloween season. * Loud noises can easily excite and frighten pets. Dogs in particular can often feel threatened by strangers appearing at the door in strange costumes. If possible, keep your pets secured in a separate room in your house while young trick-or-treaters are ringing your doorbell. If you decide to let your pets be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;part of the actionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, keep a close eye on them so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suddenly make a break for the open door and slip out into the great outdoors. * Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave your pets outside on Halloween night. Cats especially should be kept indoors several days prior to (and on the night of) Halloween. Pranksters can tease or hurt your animal at this time of the year, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all heard the horror stories of cats being killed by vicious people on this particular night. * If dressing your pet up in costume, make sure it is lightweight and non-constricting. It should be loose enough that an animal can easily get out of it. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use rubber bands, as they can constrict blood flow if too tight and can become entangled in an animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fur. Also, get your pet used to the costume several days before Halloween and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t force them to wear it if they rebel. Never leave a pet in

costume unattended. They could chew it up and ingest harmful materials or become entangled and choke. * Make sure your walk your dog earlier in the evening, before it gets dark. * If you are escorting children for trick-ortreating, leave your pets at home. Dogs get can excited and stressed when encountering all these â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;strange laughing, squealingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; creatures and may become agitated enough to snap at a young child. If you must take your dog with you, keep it on a short leash and away from large groups of children and other pets. * Halloween candy is for humans, not animals. Do not give your pets any candy, especially chocolate. Candy in itself can make your pet sick and chocolate is especially toxic to dogs. * Cellophane wrappers, foil papers and lollipop sticks should be discarded into the garbage. These items can hazardous to your pet if swallowed by causing intestinal obstructions and even perforating the intestines, which is life-threatening. * Keep your pets away from lit candles and pumpkins. They can easily knock them over causing a fire. Cats and kittens are especially curious and could accidentally burn themselves if they get too close to an open flame. * Make sure your pets have collars and identification tags just in case they do manage to get outside. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to a haunting and safe Halloween! Ian owns and operates Wags & Whiskers Dog and Cat Grooming and Puppy Kindergarten at 118 John St. N., Arnprior.

MPP John Yakabuski promotes flu shots clinics Thursday, Nov. 7 from 2 to 7 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre and Wednesday, Dec. 4 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Arnprior Legion. Doctors offices, pharmacies and some work places are also providing the flu shots. In a news release in conjunction with Yakabuski receiving his flu shot, Rexall noted it is offering the vaccine at all its stores at any time, any day when open with no appointments necessary. Last year was the first year pharmacists were able to administer immunizations in Ontario and Rexall notes that its stores gave out 80 per cent of them. Easier access to vaccinations at pharmacies, including evenings and weekends, will have a “significant impact on the health and well-being of Ontarians in the coming flu season,” says the

company. According to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the flu and its complications result in up to 1,000 hospitalizations and 1,600 deaths in Ontario each year. PREVENTING FLU

There are a number of other simple steps to prevent the spread of the flu virus including: • Wash your hands frequently. Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds to help remove bacteria and viruses. Wash before and after eating, after you have been in a public place, after using the washroom, after coughing and sneezing, and after touching surfaces that may have been contaminated. An alcoholbased hand sanitizer is also effective in killing viruses.

• Keep your hands away from your face. In most cases, the flu virus enters the body through the eyes, nose or mouth. • Cough and sneeze into your arm, not your hand. If you use a tissue, dispose of it as soon as possible and wash your hands. • Keep common surface areas clean and disinfected. Doorknobs, light switches, telephones, keyboards and other surfaces can become contaminated with all kinds of bacteria and viruses. Regular cleaning and disinfecting of these surfaces with regular household disinfectants can help. Viruses can live on hard surfaces for up to 48 hours. • If you get sick, stay home. If you think you have the flu, you should stay home until your symptoms are gone. If your symptoms get worse, call your health care provider.

News - Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MPP John Yakabuski has given the campaign in support of flu vaccinations a boost. Yakabuski received his flu shot Oct. 18 from Rexall pharmacist Stavros Tsimiklis in Petawawa. “The importance of obtaining the annual flu vaccination has been clearly demonstrated over the last number of years,” said Yakabuski. “Since I have been getting mine, the number of flu incidents is greatly reduced and the severity has been to a much lesser degree. I would encourage everyone to take advantage of the flu immunization program offered in the province, and now that it is available at many of the local pharmacies, it is more convenient than ever. “ The Renfrew County health unit has scheduled Arnprior

News – The weather wasn’t on their side on Sept. 22, but area Kidney Walk supporters still managed to more than double last year’s total donations. “Thank you all for braving the cold,” organizer Craig Dunbar said to the crowd huddled near the Ma-Te-Way Park gazebo. “At least we are not going to have anybody go down with heatstroke today.” The howling wind and threat of rain didn’t deter those who gave at least 230 per cent more money to the cause than last year’s $2,000, Dunbar said. Participation was up too, from 25 last year to about 40 this year. More than just an organizer, Dunbar lives with kidney disease and is awaiting a transplant. Unlike many, though, he regularly speaks about it in public. “It’s a hidden disease,” he said. “Most people with kidney disease don’t advocate for themselves.” Another strong advocate who spoke before the five-kilometre
