Schools to close? Teacher dispute acceleration prompts student safety concerns Arnprior holds its annual Remembrance Day ceremonies this Sunday at 11 a.m. at the cenotaph in front of the hospital. This week’s edition has several Remembrance Day features. – Pages 4, 12, 13, 33

EMC news – The escalation of the teachers dispute with the provincial government could result in school closures, warns the Renfrew County public school board. Secondary school teachers, who are now in a legal position to strike, have indicated they will start strike-related sanctions next Monday if a meeting Wednesday with the province doesn’t yield results. That has the school board worried about student safety. The board held a special meeting Monday and issued a press release Tuesday announcing the secondary school teachers had advised they would begin legal strike action Monday. One of the sanctions being imposed by the teachers is the withdrawal of supervision of students before and after school and at lunch and that “poses great concern for student safety,� says the release. As a result, the trustees have adopted an emergency contingency plan to provide alternative supervision at its secondary schools. Alternative supervision will be monitored daily by the board and if student safety is compromised the board “may be forced to close its secondary schools,� says the release. The board says it recognizes the frustration the union feels with Bill 115, but the safety of its students “is of paramount concern to school administrators, trustees and senior administration.� See SECONDARY TEACHERS Page 7

EMC news - Deaths every year along the Highway 17 corridor of Renfrew County are blamed on everything from driver error, bad weather, lack of road maintenance and the virtual absence of a four-lane highway. But perhaps the newly-formed TEAM Highway 17 Working Group is about to make the highway a whole lot safer. During a visit to Renfrew County last week, officials with the Kingston regional office of the Ministry of Transportation made a presentation to county council on construction achievements, construction plans, and past and future maintenance standards. The MTO, the Ontario Provincial Police and County of Renfrew staff met in a teleconfer-

ence call about a month ago, then met again face-to-face for an Ottawa meeting Oct. 26. Five days later, Norm Meyers, the traffic head for MTO Eastern Region, told county council that three action items have been identified for the working group. The group’s next meeting is scheduled for Jan. 17, 2013. The working group’s terms of reference are to identify and discuss safety or operational concerns, potential improvements and potential public education opportunities. The working group’s mandate is to maintain or improve the safety and/or efficiency of Highway 17 from Campbell Drive (just west of Arnprior) to the county’s western boundary (about 20 kilometres east of Mattawa).

EMC news – Arnprior has proven once again it can successfully host a major sporting event. The praise is pouring in for Arnprior and its four Valley partners for how well they hosted the World Broomball championships last week. “We’re ecstatic,� organizing committee member Glenn Arthur said Tuesday. “We’re getting nothing but good comments from players, broomball officials and the communities.� Arthur, Arnprior’s recreation director, said the visiting teams were astounded by how smoothly the week-long tournament (Oct. 29 to Nov. 3) went and how friendly the Valley communities are. “Everyone we (organizing committee members) talked to Saturday night (at the closing celebration) was happy, happy, happy,� he said.

The World Broomball Championship organizing committee gets a rousing round of applause Saturday for its 18 months of hard work, which paid off with a highly successful tournament. From left are Paul Waters, Todd Munro, Rob Munro, Kevin Kealey, Jamie Dewar of Arnprior, John Dalgity, Ruth Brown, Calvin Murphy, Arnprior recreation director Glenn Arthur, Ken Naylor of Pakenham and Alan Reid. Among those leading the cheers, behind, are George Brown and Arnprior Coun. Lynn Grinstead. DESMOND DEVOY/METROLAND

Four local teams reach world broomball championship games Continued from front

“One of the Australian players told Lynn (Arnprior Coun. Grinstead) that they ‘came to a tournament and walked into a community’,â€? Arthur said. “They really enjoyed themselves here and all around the Valley.â€? The organizing committee estimated the inux of 1,000 players and many more supporters injected about $3.5 million into the local economy. Hotels, restaurants, souvenir shops and gas stations were among the main beneďŹ ciaries. The area received a great deal of positive publicity from the tournament, said Arthur, noting the website detailing the games had received 250,000 hits by Friday. Saturday’s games were live streamed and seen

around the world, he added. The committee spent 18 months preparing for the prestigious tournament, but the hard work paid off in a large community response, said Arthur. About 300 volunteers, including 157 in the Arnprior area, helped the committee ensure the tournament was a success, he stressed. “They had a sense of pride in being involved in hosting such a major event.â€? Arthur said organizers were delighted with the large crowds that showed up for the games, particularly the ďŹ nals Saturday in Arnprior. By the time the tournament wrapped up Saturday afternoon with the Ottawa Nationals, captained by Arnprior’s Jamie Dewar, winning the Men’s world broomball title, the Nick Smith

Centre was jammed with fans. It helped that four of the ďŹ nals featured local teams, noted Arthur. Joining the Nationals in title games Saturday were West Carleton, Valley Selects and McMillans Ladies. The success proves the Valley is still a broomball hotbed. The Nationals, with Dewar, Gary Charlebois of Woodlawn, Todd Munro and Kyle Killeen of Almonte, and Chris Carroll and Joe Kealey of Clayton, ended the tournament undefeated at 10-0. However, it took overtime for them to best Yellowknife in the semi-ďŹ nal and a goal by Munro to give them the world title in a 1-0 over Palmerston, another Ontario broomball hotbed. Barries Tavern of Syracuse won bronze with a 2-1 win over Yellowknife.

Rallying to post ďŹ ve wins after losing its ďŹ rst two games, West Carleton defeated Calgary Cowboys 3-1 to win the Challenge Cup gold medal. Carleton Place’s Gary St. Pierre, Clayton’s Landon James and Ben Mainville of Embrun scored the goals and Almonte’s Jeff More picked up the win in net. The Rob Munro-coached team also included Adrian Henry of Almonte, Ben Kealey and Simon James of Clayton, Al Reid of Cedar Hill, Sean Brydges of Corkery, Dan Nash of Dunrobin, and Todd Clouthier of Fitzroy. The Valley Selects, which includes the Valley’s Mr. Broomball, George Brown, won the World Masters bronze medal with a 2-1 win over Ste. Rose of Wendover.

The team is stocked with Valley lads, including Kevin Kealey, Robert Munro and John Dalgity, who has a business in Carp. The McMillan Ladies, coached by John Allum and Nancy Fulton, won the silver medal in the world women’s category, losing 2-0 to Ottawa Stars in the ďŹ nal. Minnesota Selects took the bronze with a 1-0 win over Forever Young of Ottawa. The Titans of Mascouche, Quebec won world masters gold with a 2-1 win over Embrun Plumbing and Broom-shak, Quebec captured the world mixed gold with a 4-0 blanking of Ontario Wildcats from Kingston.

The Ottawa Nationals, with several local players on their roster, celebrate winning the World Broomball championship gold medal Saturday. The Nationals edged another Ontario team, the Palmerston Rookies, 1-0 in the tournament’s final game in Arnprior on a goal by Almonte’s Todd Munro. The Nationals, captained by Arnprior’s Jamie Dewar, finished the tournament at 10-0. But it wasn’t easy, as the Nationals needed overtime to defeat the Yellowknife Ravens 1-0 in the semi-final. Other local players on the Nationals included Clayton’s Chris Carroll, who set up the gold-medal winning goal, Clayton’s Joe Kealey, who tied for the team lead in points with eight; Woodlawn’s Gary Charlebois and Almonte’s Kyle Killeen, who each scored four goals in the tournament. Goalie Wade McCambley of Low, Quebec led the tournament with 10 wins and seven shutouts. The Nationals were coached by Steve Norman, assisted by Keith Prestley.

School involvement in broomball ‘nice twist’ Continued from Page 2

Manitoba Bisons earned the mixed bronze medal with a 2-1 win over Construction Steph of Packington, Quebec. Challenge Cup gold medals were won by the Hillbillies of Morewood (mixed), OSS of Palmerston (women) and the Orangeville Trojans (masters). The Italian, Australian, Swiss and Japanese teams didn’t make the finals, but all had an enjoyable stay in the Valley. Arthur said the teams thought involving local schools was a “nice twist.� The Arnprior schools, as well as McNab Public School, adopted teams. On the day of game they played in Arnprior, the players visited their adoptive schools to talk about their country and the game of broomball. Afterwards students in the schools’ higher grades showed up in force at the Nick Smith Centre to loudly cheer on their new heroes (see Page 40). The teams were delighted by the

enthusiastic support, said Arthur, with many of them saluting their young fans at the end of the games. The only complaint by the Japanese teams, adopted by A.J. Charbonneau, was that the school visit wasn’t long enough, he added. Arnprior District High School adopted a team from Minneapolis, St. Joseph’s an Italian team, Walter Zadow a Swiss squad, John XXIII a team from Yellowknife and McNab the Australians, which was appropriate considering principal Bronwyn Scott is originally from down under. The tournament included opening ceremonies in Beckwith Oct. 29, a civic reception in Almonte Oct. 30 and a final get-together in Beckwith Nov. 3 when the organizing committee was given a rousing thank-you. The next world tournament will be held in Japan in 2014. All the results are available on the website www.2012worldbroomball. ca.

Let us remember them wrote. “We also need to thank surviving veterans for the commitment they made to us and our country in the defence of liberty.” Minister of Veterans Affairs Steven Blaney also asked Canadians to reflect on the “courageous efforts of the men and women in uniform who have served this country, and those who continue to serve today. “Throughout the past year, we have marked a number of significant historical military milestones, including the 95th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, the 95th anniversary of the capture of Passchendaele and the 70th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid. Recognizing these important anniversaries ensures that the stories of our veterans will live on for generations to come. “I encourage Canadians to find their own personal way of honouring and remembering the contributions of Canada’s Veterans whose legacy is the peace and security we continue to enjoy today.” Blaney noted Canadians can engage in remembrance by joining the Canada Remembers Facebook page. Because Remembrance Day is on a Sunday this year, several government offices will be closed. The Arnprior and McNab-Braeside municipal offices will be closed on Monday, Nov. 12, as will be the Arnprior Post Office and Arnprior Public Library. The Arnprior town council meeting has been moved from Monday to Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 6:30 p.m. LCBO stores that are normally open Sunday will open at noon on Remembrance Day, and remain open until normal closing hours. LCBO agency stores observe their normal hours of business on Nov. 11.

EMC lifestyle – The public is encouraged to turn out Sunday and take part in the annual Remembrance Day ceremonies at the cenotaph in Arnprior. The Arnprior Legion is organizing the parade from the Legion to the cenotaph in front of Arnprior District Memorial Hospital (for a history of the cenotaph, see Page 33). The parade will begin at about 10:30 a.m. The ceremony will follow with two minutes of silence planned for 11 a.m. and the laying of wreaths to remember and honour the veterans who fought for Canada’s freedom and a peaceful world. The reviewing officer is Ronald Whyte, a navy veteran, and Lois Robillard, whose husband, Maurice, passed away in May, will represent the Silver Cross Mothers. A social gathering will be held at the Legion after the ceremony. A number of local organizations and youth groups will participate in the parade, including the Arnprior McNab Pipes and Drums (not the Renfrew group as indicated in last week’s paper). There are also Remembrance Day ceremonies Sunday in Pakenham at 10:45 a.m., Clayton at 11 a.m., and Almonte and Horton at 2 p.m. In his November column, RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski, who attended a Remembrance ceremony in Calabogie Sunday, urged everyone to wear a poppy and participate if they can in a Remembrance Day service in their community. “While we should, every day and at all times, remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to defend the democracy and freedoms that we enjoy, we need to make special efforts on Nov. 11 to ensure that their sacrifices are never forgotten,” he

MP opposes proposed name change for riding John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant said she’ll fight to keep Nipissing as part of the name of the riding. Gallant made a submission to the Electoral Boundaries Commission for Ontario Monday in Ottawa, requesting the withdrawal of the recommendation the riding’s name be changed to Renfrew-Pembroke. “They gave no reason (for the recommendation) and considering the riding’s boundaries aren’t changing, it makes sense to keep the

name,” she told the Chronicle Guide EMC. She told the Commission that as MP for the riding for the past 12 years, she is pleased no boundary changes are being proposed. “This makes absolute sense as the slight population variance from the provincial quota, 3.46 per cent, made your job easier compared to other parts of Ontario when it came to determining the electoral boundary for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke,” she told the Commission. “Unlike ridings in northern Ontario, which have experienced population decreases, or southern Ontario, with large population

increases, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke enjoys a stable population in keeping with the provincial average.” Gallant pointed out the portion of Nipissing District in the riding, made up of the recently municipally amalgamated community of South Algonquin and relatively unpopulated sections of Algonquin Provincial Park, has a geographic and historic community of interest with Renfrew County. The area is tied to Renfrew County by Highway 60, and doesn’t have major links to any other riding, she said. “It made complete sense to include that part of Nipissing

Most of long gun registry destroyed Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant is pleased with the government’s recent destruction of millions of records in Canada’s long-gun registry. Media reports last week reported that a spokesperson for Public Safety Minister Vic Toews confirmed the registry’s destruction (except for data related to Quebec, restricted firearms and prohibited weapons) as of Nov. 1, after gun enthusiasts started spreading the story. The Quebec data remains in the registry because of a court injunction filed by the Quebec government. Gallant said she welcomes the deletion of the long-gun registry contents. “The opposition has vowed to reinstate the long-gun registry, should either one of them become government. So we have deleted the data, making it difficult for the opposition to reconstruct the registry,” said Gallant. “It’s what our government promised, and we’re pleased to have a majority government to keep that promise.” Gallant says the long-gun registry was “ineffective and wasteful. It has not saved a single life. And it was approaching $1 billion, some say $2 billion, to create and maintain it.” Meanwhile, gun owners still must have a POL, or Possession Only Licence, which is valid for five years and allows firearms owners to possess firearms, including borrowed firearms. Restricted or prohibited firearms require a registration certificate from the Canadian Fire-

arms Program (CFP). The POL does not allow for the acquisition of more firearms; only the Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL) does, says Gallant. After speaking to Toews Tuesday morning, Gallant said he indicated that no law on the books compels businesses to obtain personal information from firearms owners. Deletion of most of the long-gun registry was made possible with passage last year of Conservative MP Candice Hoeppner’s private member’s bill. Another driving force, says Gallant, was Saskatchewan MP Garry Breitkreuz. The Conservatives have stressed, in the leadup to deletion of the long-gun registry, that firearms owners still need to undergo police background checks, pass a safety course, and comply with rules on gun storage and transportation. Media reports say the long-gun registry reached an estimated eight million firearms. The Conservatives have opposed the longgun registry for more than a decade. The hot-button topic likely cost Liberal MP Hec Clouthier his seat in Renfrew-NipissingPembroke in 2000, as Gallant, then of the Reform Party, was elected for the first time. She took advantage of local opposition to the long-gun registry act, in Bill C-68, and benefited from the local backlash to Clouthier’s verbalized support for gun control. Clouthier later said he didn’t favour the registry, but that he was merely trying to tow the Liberal Party line. Gallant has remained in power since then.

Counties between multiple ridings. The two days of hearings in Ottawa are among many being held across the country. The final draft of the Ontario Federal Electoral Boundary Commission’s proposal will be completed some time after Nov. 19, the date of its last public consultation. Following that, the commission will submit its draft to Parliament to be reviewed and approved by MPs in a special committee before the new boundaries are ratified. No ridings will be affected until the next election in 2015, when MPs will be elected according to the new boundaries. To see the proposed riding changes, visit www.federalredistribution.ca .

saving should be considered and I ask that this consideration be made in retaining the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Riding name.” Gallant did say that the proposed increase of 15 new ridings in Ontario was justified considering the province’s increase in population since the last redistribution of seats. While the boundaries of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke see no change, the proposal would have Mississippi Mills split from West Carleton and moved into a Lanark-based riding as urged by many in the Pakenham-Almonte area.

District with Renfrew County for electoral purposes,” she said. “They already tend to feel isolated …. so should continue to be recognized in our riding name,” she added. Gallant also argued that a change would create unnecessary expense. The financial cost of changing every reference, disposing of letterhead and business cards, and paying someone to change websites is not justified, she said. “While some may argue this is the cost of democracy in Canada, others in the political process argue we spend too much on Parliament and the actual cost of representation, including the current process to increase the number of MPs in Ottawa.

Time long overdue to deal with Highway 17 deaths, MTO told Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC news - The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) delegation consumed about 90 minutes of Renfrew County council’s meeting Oct. 31, but it only took about two minutes for Deep River Mayor David Thompson to express many county councillors’ sense of frustration about Highway 17 expansion and maintenance. Several county councillors pressed the MTO delegation for answers, including the desire to know when Phase 2 of Highway 417 expansion might proceed. Phase 1, which runs 5.3 kilometres up to Campbell Drive just west of Arnprior, is expected to be completed this month. But first Thompson caught everyone’s attention with his remarks. He reminded the delegation that he was headed to a funeral in a few days for the sixth Deep River resident that has died in a Highway 17 vehicular accident in the past few years. “My guess is that when you travelled up here, you travelled on Highway 41. If you had travelled up on Highway 417, you would have seen the crosses and you would have seen the

wreaths, and you would have seen the memorials that litter Highway 17.� He reminded the delegation that the weekend funeral he planned to attend was for a local resident, whose daughter is a classmate of his son’s. “This is the sixth funeral I have attended in the last two years of my residents in a small town (because of a Highway 17 accident). They’re not bad drivers. There is something fundamentally wrong with this highway, and we cannot let this exist.� He concluded that the maintenance provided by a North Bay-based company was abysmal. He also recognized MTO’s presentation that indicated that maintenance standards will increase for the winter of 2013-14, but that staff “be ever diligent this year so we can limit our fatalities.� In responding, MTO regional director Kathy Moore said these types of concerns are why the MTO is sitting down with the OPP to determine how the highway can be made safer. She said Thompson’s concerns would also be reiterated with the maintenance contractor for the Deep River section of Highway 17. More questions followed from county coun-

cillors, including several about when Phase 2 and 3 of Highway 417 might result in the fourlaning of the remaining 22 kilometres between Arnprior and Renfrew. MTO officials told county council that Highway 417 expansion is its highest priority, but that it still isn’t part of the province’s current five-year capital works plan. MTO said in its presentation that it has coordinated more than $250 million in highway improvements in Renfrew County since 2003. This includes 37 of Renfrew County’s 77 bridges or large culverts, while future projects include Petawawa River bridge rehab, Hwy. 60 to Hwy. 17 resurfacing, and the replacement of Constant Creek Bridge on Hwy. 132. After thanking the MTO staff for an earlier visit to the Town of Deep River last April, Thompson said follow-up from that meeting was conspicuously absent for several months. He said the MTO also needs to address safety issues, and the sooner the better. He cited two specific examples. One is the sudden end of a second Hwy. 17 lane, about 50 metres before the intersection at Ridge Road. This, he said, often results in large vehicles

jockeying for the remaining lane with pedestrians often nearby. The second example is a false left-turn lane into Tim Hortons. Thompson called it “a bit of a teaser lane. It’s a left-turn lane into the (adjacent) Canadian Tire. Any visitor, of course, puts on their left blinker without looking in their rearview mirror. I can tell you, and our traffic statistics and local OPP will tell you, how many collisions happen there. When you have a transport behind you and you think you’re in a turning lane and you’re not, this is great cause of concern.� The mayor also commented on MTO’s sixmonth delay regarding a visit last spring. He called the delay and eventual reply in late October unacceptable. The Ministry of Transportation, said the correspondence, does not have any plans to rehabilitate Highway 17 through the Town of Deep River. While Thompson recognized the MTO’s classification of roads, he stressed: “The residents of Renfrew County are not second class (the same class Highway 17 is given through Deep River). We are all the same, whether we live in Deep River, Toronto or Kingston.�

Transition between four lanes and existing highway west of Arnprior to be studied Continued from front

The working group’s co-chairs are Meyers and Darren Waters, the senior project engineer for the MTO Eastern Region. Renfrew County director of public works Dave Darch, who’s a member of the group, says: “How can we make the highway safer while we’re waiting for four-laning to come?� The working group’s other five members are MTO Eastern Region’s traffic supervisor Toby Covell, regional communications co-ordina-

tor Brandy Duhaime and regional planner Josee Bessette, and Dave Springer and Mark Andrews of the OPP. Springer and Andrews are the respective traffic and marine inspectors for the OPP’s east and northeast regions. Action item No. 1 relates to this year’s death of a local woman at the intersection of Highway 17 and Haley Road. As a result of the OPP’s site investigation into the accident’s contributing factors, the OPP has recommend-

ed the construction of a left-turn lane for drivers coming from the east. In turn, the working group will examine more than a dozen Highway 17 intersections that do not have leftturn lanes, to determine if those turn lanes are needed. Collision analyses, traffic volume and economic viability will be considered. Action item No. 2 involves hiring an independent consultant to determine the suitability of a two-lane transition zone - between the new

four-lane highway (near Campbell Drive just outside Arnprior) and the ensuing transition zone - for up to 10 years. The ensuing transition zone basically consists of two lanes and two parallel passing zones for 1.5 kilometres. There’s time to do this independent study, suggests Meyers, because of the unknowns of funding for Phase 2 of the Arnprior bypass. Phase 1, which runs 5.3 kilometres to Campbell Drive, is scheduled for completion this month.

Action item No. 3 will be discussion of the OPP’s mapping of Highway 17 collisions from the past 18 months, to help identify areas that may be safety concerns. Darch sees the working group is an interim, but important, measure. In the interim, the public works director wants to take a closer look at the causes of fatalities and, where necessary, make structural changes to the highway. Some of those changes may be costly, some not very costly at all, he says.

Secondary teachers delay sanctions until Monday in hopes of deal

The board adds that it is committed to providing a safe, caring and respectful learning environment for its students. Despite the sanctions, bargaining between local school boards and the union is ongoing. The board says its website at www. renfrew.edu.on.ca will provide future updates on the issue. The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation had announced sanctions would be begun by 27 bar-

gaining units Wednesday after negotiations with their respective school boards failed to produce tentative agreements. However, on Tuesday, teachers said the actions were delayed until Monday. The federation had arranged to meet with government representatives Wednesday “in the interest of going forward and seeking resolutions to the challenges facing the education sector,” said a teachers news release. “It is disappointing that we have not been able to achieve deals with local

school boards to this point,” said federation president Ken Coran. “However, the ability of both sides to negotiate a fair deal has been obstructed by the actions of the Minister of Education and the Liberal government through the passing of Bill 115 in September. “With 92 per cent of our members voting in favour of strike action, the level of anger and frustration is very clear,” he added. “This action is a last resort and for the McGuinty government to put us in this position was both unnecessary and regrettable. We are

still hopeful that we can find a resolution to the crisis that the government has created. “However, at this time, the reality of achieving settlements seems remote and tensions and actions will likely escalate,” Coran emphasized. Meanwhile, elementary teachers are also having trouble coming to agreements with their school boards. More than 75 Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) locals have requested conciliation to help negotiate collective agreements.

EDITORIAL famous, but because they are playing hard in a sport they love. It was another feather in the cap of Arnprior and neighbours. The organizing committee should be heartily applauded for their hard work. Great job lads and lassies.

Broomball hurray, NHL hockey boo Who could miss the National Hockey League when we have such excellent sports entertainment right here at home? The World Broomball championship tournament last week in Arnprior and four of its Valley neighbours was all it was cracked up to be and more. Saturday’s final games at the Nick Smith Centre were actionpacked and full of suspense. Seven of the final games Saturday were one-goal affairs and four involved our local heroes. No wonder the arena was packed. Surely there are many new broomball fans won over in this

area by the excitement generated by the 55 teams that came from as far away as Australia and Switzerland. It was marvellous to see the organizers involving local students in the tournament by having them all adopt teams coming in from far away. The students got into the spirit of the competition in a big way and the visiting players were obviously touched by their enthusiasm and hospitality. It was encouraging to see people playing a game for the love of the sport and not the money. And it was equally heartening to see young people cheering on players, not because they are

LEST WE FORGET

The world has certainly changed since the last world war. Having teams in town from Italy and Japan for the World Broomball championships proves that. All the more reason to keep remembering how terrible are the the human failures when we have to resort to war to solve our differences and maintain our freedom. Help keep the memories alive by attending a ceremony honouring the veterans this Sunday on Remembrance Day.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Pick up after dogs along corridor To the Editor: Since the removal of the railroad tracks running along William Street, I have noticed lots of folks walking their dogs. My eight-year-old daughter and I also walk our dog on a regular basis and make use of this public green space. Lately, I have noticed more and more that dog owners are not picking up after their furry friends. This leaves a mess in a public area. One that you often don’t see during a late night walk until you step into this squishy pile. I am sure that if you took your dog to a public park or if it did its business on someone’s front yard you would pick up after it. This is

no different. To the few people who do this, I would ask that you please show some courtesy and consideration for others and pick up after your dog. And to the lady in the yellow rain coat who did not pick up after her big black dog, I would like to take this opportunity to thank her. If it were not for her telling me to F-off and flip me the bird - in front of my wife and daughter Sunday morning - this letter likely would never have been written. Scott Ferrier Arnprior

Arnprior hospital friendly, helpful To the Editor: A few weeks ago I found myself in a bit of a scrape, and was couriered by ambulance to Arnprior Memorial Hospital. I’ve been to most of the hospitals in Ottawa over the years, both as a guest and to visit patients, and my visit to Arnprior has given me new perspective.

During my short stay, and subsequent visits for tests, I was pleasantly surprised to find that everyone I encountered was so friendly, and talkative, and patient (a special thank-you to a nurse who offered my wife and I a toonie when we discovered we had no change to exit the parking lot - small things make big differences).

I felt ashamed too, as on my first visit, I was pretty cranky. My apologies to everyone in emergency who had to listen to the sound of my voice. The staff there set an example that anyone can learn from, myself included. Rick Longtin Constance Bay

Web Poll

Care shown by hospital staff was a livesaver To the Editor: In September of this year I went to the Emergency Department at the Arnprior Hospital. On arrival, my wife and I were met by the triage nurse who quickly arranged for immediate follow-up and medical attention for severe abdomen pain I had been having for three days. The care, courtesy, expertise and professionalism from the entire staff at all levels was both appreciated and impressive. I was diagnosed with diverticulitis. It could have ended with the prescription given on being discharged, but to the credit of the medical team that night, a CT scan was ordered for that week to confirm their findings and make sure nothing else had been missed. It is with sincere thanks and loud applause from my family to the staff at the hospital that

their pro-active approach ordering the scan without doubt will have saved my life. It is solely because of their care and interest my life will be spared, as in three weeks I will have my right kidney removed having been diagnosed with Renal Cells Carcinoma (cancer) with a full and cancer-free recovery expected. I recall my dad’s last days of his life in 1999 being cared for at the Arnprior Hospital where the compassion and care he was given left me impressed with how a small community hospital conducted their business. Nice to see the effort continues. Feel free to print this in the local paper giving recognition to people making a difference.

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION

Another Halloween has come and gone. Has the festivity outgrown its usefulness?

Many government offices are closed next Monday and council meetings have been moved to Tuesday because Remembrance Day is on Sunday. Should Remembrance Day become an official holiday for all?

A)

No way. It’s a great tradition that brings some fun into a dreary time of the year and is good for business.

B) Yes, scrap it. It’s an outdated

14%

A) Yes, many civil servants get it off, so everyone should get the same consideration. Besides we need a holiday in November.

celebration that promotes greed and obesity.

C) Keep the fun stuff, such as the decorations, dressing up and pumpkin-carving, but change the focus from candy to more healthy treats.

18%

B) No. Encourage offices and schools to close in the morning so staff and students can attend the 11 a.m. ceremonies, but have them go back in the afternoon.

C)

We need to completely rethink the concept. Focus more on spirituality, charity, or political expression (words, not Guy Fawkes’ way), or simply make it 23% a day of reaching out to neighbours to celebrate your community.

Yes, with fewer and fewer veterans, making it an official holiday will help ensure we will never stop remembering the sacrifice of our vets and the horrors of war.

D)

No, making it just another holiday day takes away its meaning, especially when people are taking it off a day later. To vote in our web poll, visit us online at www.yourottawaregion.com/community/ruralnorth

Parents begin to Speak Out! for hockey

Derek Dunn Overdunn ing against a teenage ref’s offside call as if it were a crime against humanity. Yes, it happens. But, just as news is when a man bites a dog and not when a dog bites a man, it is the exception – and garners attention because it happens infrequently. Most high-strung hockey parents simply want the best for their kids. Only a small subset actually delude themselves with selfish dreams of becoming NHL players’ parents. At a recent Hockey Canada meeting I attended, we learned how much of a hallucination that dream can be. Of the 30,000 Ontario players who registered for hockey in 1975, just 22,000 were still playing in 1991; 232 were drafted into the OHL; 105 actually played; 48 were drafted into the NHL; 34 signed con-

tracts; 22 played. By 1999, only 11 remained in the NHL. That is .005 per cent. Total dollar from each player’s parents? Between $750,000 and $1.5 million. Suddenly spending $600 on an Easton Synergy Xtreme Grip stick for a player in atom makes a little less sense. Then again, kids that age can’t put 600 pounds of pressure on the stick to make it of any use; best to put that money against the mortgage. Because the vast majority of hockey parents are great people, I decided this year to contribute a little more than the Arnprior registration fee. I’m our atom team’s trainer, though apparently that’s not enough to convince my wife to call me Dr. Dunn. Among the prerequisites for the job is to take the Speak Out! course. I jumped at the chance to spend an evening at the Carp rink, a half-hour drive from home. OK, less a jump than a swift push from other parent volunteers. During the dark drive there I lamented over the state of humanity; why it is we need training simply to oversee a kids’ game? Are we too used to the “Here we are now, entertain us” of the Internet, where we can click to another site at will? Maybe we’ve confused the customer-service provider relationship a la restaurants, gas stations, and grocery stores for normal interactions. I asked Brent Dick, our

instructor that night, why we needed a course. “Back in the good ole days we didn’t need a course,” I said. “Sheldon Kennedy,” Dick said. The good ole days weren’t so good for kids like Kennedy, who was sexually abused during his days in minor hockey. Hockey Canada failed the ex-pro. And now the organization is determined to not let it happen to another kid. Dick said parents have an expectation when they send their kids to hockey, to school, to any number of activities: safety is a given. Today’s parents also participate more in their children’s lives then parents did in the past. Participating can be complicated; issues that arise can be complicated. Many of us benefit from learning best practices, and not assume that just because we have our own kids we know how to deal with other kids. I learned a lot from the course, starting with the differences between bullying, harassment, and abuse. BULLIES ARE ADMIRED

R0011553716

The politics I’ve covered on Parliament Hill is child’s play compared to hockey rink politics. There’s just so much less at stake when it comes to the nation’s work. Hockey, especially minor hockey, deals with wins and losses and conflicts and resolutions on a much more personal level. While it may be true that parents are a bit like MPs looking out for their constituents’ best interests, that is where the analogy ends. A child is not a mom’s voter; again, because much more is at stake. I can almost understand why some parents scoff at the idea of putting their kids into hockey, or for that matter any organized activity. After a long day at work tolerating others, who wants to be sociable with other parents, some of whom may even be strangers? Best buy Junior an IPod and turn on the television. But we are social beings. The lone homo sapien hunter would have been gobbled up long ago without the co-operation and consensus of others. That’s why many of us see a benefit to organized activities; jamming our kids into a sweat-stinking dressing room while we huddle together in the stands for warmth. We are advancing the species, more or less. Unfortunately, the exception undermines the rule. It is almost universally accepted that hockey parents are forever banging on Plexiglas, rail-

Bully often an excellent player and student The bully continually criticizes and blames the target for mistakes, and has unreasonable demands. The target’s accomplishments are downplayed, and the victim is expected to live by more stringent rules than others. Interestingly, a bully is often an excellent player and student, admired by peers and adults alike. She or he is a natural leader. That is why, should the target speak up – which they almost never do – he or she is often asked by an authority figure: ‘What did you do wrong?’ That’s not the right approach, obviously. The target needs someone who will, first and foremost, listen to their plight. Maybe suggest

ways they can stand up for themselves, if they have it within them. Suggesting winning over peers; there’s strength in numbers. The bully needs correcting, too. Left unchecked, they will bring it into adulthood and will likely become a mall security guard or prime minister. They need to be taught empathy, and how to connect with others. Saying, repeatedly, “How would you feel if someone did that to you?� will drive guilt into them. And as every good Catholic will tell you, guilt is a great motivator. Harassment is a violation of someone’s rights. It has to do with sexual, race, or disability discrimination. There doesn’t need to be a

It can be emotional (a coach screaming abuses at players); physical (grabbing the back of a player’s sweater); sexual (both contact and non-contact). These may seem broad and sweeping, but the one thing they have in common is that an abuser is a predator by nature. Abuse must be reported, not investigated by coaches or par-

Homeopathy won’t help with flu To the Editor: If I were being interviewed for an article and told the reporter that I was the King of Norway, I would expect the statement to be presented not as fact, but as a claim – and a rather dubious one at that. And yet this is precisely the sort of thing I found myself reading in the Oct. 25 Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC under the heading ‘Free homeopathic oral flu prevention’. Stating that a homeopathic “remedy� is effective does not make it so, nor does attempting to lend it credibility by citing fictitious statistics regarding its effectiveness (99% of marketers agree, numbers make things appear compelling!) For the record, there has never been a single legitimate study that conclusively proves homeopathic “medicine� to be any more effective than voodoo, wishful thinking, or – my personal favourite – doing nothing. There have, however, been countless peer-reviewed scientific studies that have revealed it to be exactly as effective as a sugar pill placebo. Homeopathy is based on the utterly discredited theory that a purported active ingredient becomes more effective the more diluted it is.

Thus, homeopathic ingredients are measurable in parts-per-million or even parts-per-billion: present to a far lesser degree than the concentration of heavy metals or poop in safe drinking water. In fact, the most “powerful� homeopathic remedies are likely to contain not a single molecule of the supposed medicinal ingredient. As a father of two, I encourage everyone to think very carefully before making their children ingest some magical mystery powder under the impression that it will help prevent the flu. It will not. Your children’s health will be just as well served by staying home. In fact, by staying home and doing nothing, not only will your family enjoy flu prevention that is proven 100% as effective as a homeopathic ‘remedy’, you will also greatly reduce the chances of anyone being injured in an accident on their way to getting the treatment. Conversely, if you genuinely want to increase the chances that you and your loved ones will avoid the flu this year, you could go to the flu shot clinic at the Nick Smith Centre on Nov. 6. See you there. Andrew Fogarasi Arnprior

Hunters urged to beware of ticks

Deer now in the rut Michael Runtz Nature’s Way ring bucks face each other and lower their heads. They touch antlers and then shove back and forth. Eventually one tires and loses the contest, breaking away to leave the victor to enjoy the spoils. Because deer antlers are more branched than those of Moose, occasionally two combatants become locked together. When that happens, both experience a slow and unpleasant demise. During the rut, White-tailed Deer employ special chemicals as attractants. Bucks release their pheromones through several special glands. One is near the eyes and another is on the forehead. The latter is used to mark small trees that the buck rubs the bark off. Bucks even pull down branches, allowing them to rub against the head gland when the branch is released. This is often done over a scrape, a small depression dug by the front hooves. Rubs and the other scent

MICHAEL RUNTZ

This fine buck was looking for love Sunday. markers tell rival bucks that there is a contender in town, and inform females that a worthy mate is available. Rubs and scrapes are visual as well as olfactory signposts, and does inspect them regularly. Other glands are situated on the inside of the hind legs and these are known as tarsal glands. Special hair tufts outside the glands help retain the chemicals, which mix with urine released by the deer. Deer squat to ensure that urine runs over the glands in a posture known as rub-urination.

Male deer track down the females via their chemical trails, but as all sexes and ages of deer apparently have tarsal glands, the information they provide obviously plays more roles than just sexual ones. After mating, pair bonds between bucks and does quickly dissolve. The bucks shed their antlers, and return to a life of eating and staying alive. For both sexes, their “terms of endeerment” are gone for another year! The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

EMC news – Hunting season is upon us and the local health units have issued a reminder for hunters to be aware they share the great outdoors with ticks that can make them sick. Lyme disease is caused by the bite of an infected black-legged tick (deer tick) that has been attached for at least 24 hours. Black-legged ticks require the blood of the person or animal that it is biting to be capable of transferring the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. What can you do to minimize your exposure to ticks? • Wear light coloured, long sleeved shirts and long pants. For extra protection, tuck your pants into your socks. Use bug repellent containing DEET. Read the manufacturer’s instructions before applying the repellent on yourself or children. • When you return from the outdoors, check your entire body thoroughly for ticks, showering right away will help to remove loose ticks off your body. • If you find an attached tick, remove it promptly using a pair of tweezers. Grasp the tick’s head and mouth parts as close to the skin as possible and pull it straight out gently, but firmly. Avoid squeezing the tick during removal. Treat the bite area with an antiseptic. • If the black-legged tick has been attached for more than 24 hours and is engorged, you should visit your health care provider within 72 hours of removing the tick for a medical assessment. Bites from ticks infected with the bacteria that causes Lyme disease may result in a red rash that may appear within three days and up to a month after the bite. A bull’s eye rash may be present in the area of the bite. Symptoms of Lyme disease may include fever, headache, fatigue, muscle and joint pain. These symptoms may disappear, but if left untreated Lyme disease can progress to affect the nervous system, joints and the heart. If you develop symptoms of Lyme disease consult your health care provider and let them know that you were bitten by a tick. 1108.R0011727921

EMC lifestyle - When one thinks of animals and mating, spring usually comes to mind. That is for good reason. The vast majority of birds mate in spring, ensuring that their young mature in time to make the great migration south. Many mammals also feel the urge in spring, especially smaller ones. Mating in spring allows females to give birth at a time when there is plenty of food for the young. However, a few large mammals mate in the fall, with their long pregnancies lasting the entire winter. By now Moose have long finished their fascinating mating rituals, but White-tailed Deer are still active. While their rituals are not as vocally interesting as those of Moose, White-tailed Deer display elaborate behaviours during their short season of love. As they do for Moose, the antlers of male deer, the bucks, play important roles in the mating season, the rut. These bony structures reveal the owner’s age, health, and vigour, with the largest racks residing atop the heads of the healthiest prime bucks. The soft skin called velvet that adorned the antlers through their growth has now been shed, and now the polished bone shows its finest. Like Moose, buck deer spar to establish dominance. Spar-

The D-Day dodgers in sunny Italy: Canadians in the Italian campaign To the Editor: On 10 July, 1943, Canadian troops, as part of the combined Allied force of Commonwealth and United States formations landed in Sicily. The Sicilian campaign was hard-fought with the Canadians assigned to eastern area of Sicily. The terrain was mountainous and wet from heavy rains and the state poor roads made the fighting arduous. These conditions plus the tenacity of the German forces made any headway very difficult but the Allies persevered and reached the Straits of Messina in late August. On Sept. 3, 1943 another amphibious assault was made across the Straits of Messina. The Canadian sector included the target area of Reggio Calabria. In fairly short order the Canadians reached its objective then crossed the Aspromonte Mountains and along the Gulf of Taranto. By Sept. 10, they were 75 miles inland from Reggio. By mid-September, German resistance strengthened in the central and northern part of Italy. After some positive success, the allies moved up the Italian peninsula, with the next major target being Rome. Canadian formations found themselves in the central mountains where the fighting became much more intense. By May, 1944 after heavy

slowed along the mountinous spine of Italy except on the Adriatic coast. The rest of the winter of 1944/45 was somewhat static but the advance renewed with full aggressiveness in early April, 1945. After heavy fighting, the German front

was broken and by late April the bulk of the German forces were trapped up against the Po River. The end of the Italian campaign came on May 2, 1945 with the surrender of all German forces in Italy. This brief thumbnail sketch of the Italian campaign does

not adequately describe the horror of war nor the heroism displayed by all the forces that took part in it. Suffice to say much has been written or displayed in other forms of the media, and those accounts offer the ‘big picture’ much more eruditely than I have done here. The human cost to the Allies was substantial. Most Canadians have no real idea of the numbers sustained by forces that belonged to the United States, South Africa, India, Palestine, Morocco, Algeria, New Zealand, Poland, Greece, France, Italy, Great Britain, Nepal, Australia and Canada. The Commonwealth alone lost almost 50,000 personnel in Italy, most of whom are interred in 37 war cemeteries. Over 4,000 personnel have no known grave. Others, mainly naval and air force casualties are mainly commemorated in Malta or in their country of origin. Canada’s total casualties numbered 25,264 with approximately 5,900 killed. A brief overview of the major Canadian formations that took part in the Italian campaign are: The 1st Canadian Infantry Division, 5th Canadian Armoured Division, 1st Independent Armoured Brigade, 1st Canadian Corps troops, 1st Canadian Army troops and the 1st Special Service Force, also known as the ‘Devil’s Brigade’. This formation was composed of both United States and Canadian elite troops. Of interests to residents of Renfrew and Lanark counties is the recognition that the Lanark and Renfrew Scottish Regiment served overseas in Italy first as an artillery unit, then as an infantry formation as part of the 12th Infantry Brigade, 5th Canadian Armoured Division. It subsequently moved to North-West Europe where it was converted back to a light anti-aircraft artillery unit until hostilities ceased in 1945. In October of 2011, my

spouse, Jacqueline MacDonald, and I visited Italy. We wanted to visit the large cemetery at Monte Casino. However, our travel itinerary prevented us from doing so. Thus, we opted to visit the Commonwealth War Cemetery at Naples. We had no idea what we would find there, but we wanted to see it. Initially, the taxi dispatcher at the Naples Port Authority wasn’t sure where the cemetery was located, but after some discussion amongst his colleages in quick animated Italian, an agreement was reached that would allow us to visit what locally is known as the ‘English Cemetery’. The driver actually still didn’t know where it was, but he managed to get us there via cell phone directions. A quick word about Naples itself. The city was bombed during World War II, but didn’t see any ground combat operations of any significance. It was the site, however, of two large hospitals. One British and the other American. We subsequently learned that those interred in Naples were casualties from these hospitals as well as some graves moved there at a later date. Driving in Naples is like trying to get around in London, New York, Los Angeles, or Toronto, all at the same time. In one word ‘chaotic’. Vehicles park where their drivers choose to park. Cars pass on the right, left or centre of the street and we won`t even mention what the pedestrians do. There were more one finger salutations than I have ever seen. Getting to the cemetery was an adventure to say the least. But once we arrived there, it was worth the journey. The Naples Commonwealth Cemetery contains 1,202 graves. Jacqueline and I located just over 100 of them as Canadian. One grave belongs to Gunner William Maksemiuk of the Lanark and Renfrew Scottish Regiment. Cemetery records indicated that he died in 1945. It was calm that October day and had little of the noise that the rest of Naples endures. It was almost deemed that noise there was taboo! On our arrival we met some people from the United Kingdom who were looking for a deceased relative. As we left to go back down the mountain side and back into the chaos of a Napalese version of a demolition derby, I was wiping away tears from my face. This November 11, Jacqueline and I will remember the ‘D-Day Dodgers in Sunny Italy’ and particularly those remain there buried in peace and dignity.

SUBMITTED/DOUG CALDER

Sandra Doran RMT

Memories captured in images Arnprior resident Doug Calder is a World War II veteran who each year puts special effort into remembering the sacrifices made by so many in the great wars in which Canada was involved. He stresses the importance of paying tribute to Canada’s heroes by wearing a poppy and attending the ceremonies. Calder was a driver in #3 Canadian General Hospital, a medical unit that was close to the front lines in Italy and elsewhere. In 2003, Calder joined a group of veterans and revisited Italy on an organized excursion that in particular made stops at cemeteries filled with the graves of Canadian soldiers. At left, he and his daughter in 2003 at Monte Cassino, the site of a famous battle in 1944. Above is a 1944 photograph taken by Calder himself of the war-ravaged mountain.

Ten-month-old Edward Bell gets his first flu shot Tuesday at a Renfrew County Public Health Unit free clinic at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior. Patti Smith administers the flu show as dad, William Bell, looks on. Both William and mom, Jenn, also received their flu shots at the clinic. The family is from West Carleton. More than 300 people showed up to receive the flu shot at the five-hour clinic. Organizers report numbers are down slightly at many of the health unit clinics, as pharmacies are able to give the flu shots this year, along with doctors. However, anyone five and under cannot get the flu shot at a pharmacy, so Edward came to the health unit clinic. For those who missed the clinic, the health unit will hold another one Thursday, Nov. 22 from 3-7 p.m. at the Arnprior Legion.

Focus on parenting at Arnprior workshops EMC lifestyle - Arnprior Child and Youth Counsellor Darlene Denis-Friske is offering two workshops for parents and professionals this month. Making Sense of Adolescence will be a Saturday morning presentation for parents Nov. 24 for $50 a person or $80 a couple. The workshop from 9 a.m. to noon will allow parents to take a step back and consider the larger picture of the pivotal psychological and emotional changes unfolding in this time of development. Deeper insight into dynamics involved in adolescent development can alleviate confusion, provide clarity, and offer parents reassurance and guidance about how to work with what they see unfolding in their son or daughter. Making Sense of Discipline will be a three-

part video-course for parents and professionals by Dr. Gordon Neufeld, facilitated by DenisFriske on Thursdays (Nov. 8, 15, 22) from 6 to 8 p.m. for $60 a person or $8 a couple. The course will speak to the question of discipline from the much larger context of what is attachment-safe, developmentally-friendly, and supportive of healthy maturation and psychological growth. A parenting workshop with attachment and relationship in mind will be held Jan. 23 from 6-8 p.m. for $5 per person. All workshops will be held at the Ontario Early Years Centre at the Kenwood Corporate Centre. Contact her to register, or for more information, at 613-622-5499 or acycc@bellnet.ca.

Missing team members are captain Ian Fraser, Nancy Hartwick and Bonnie Hamilton. Mom also realized earlier in the program that it wasn’t as tough as she had anticipated. The program has also motivated her to consider taking up running again, like she did in high school, so she can join her son for cross-country runs.

companies. Across the globe, 185,000 Global Corporate Challenge participants from 98 countries took 220 billion steps. For Steele, her first steps as part of the Global Corporate Challenge were intended to help her get to know fellow employees better. She only joined the company in February before the program ran May through September. A smoker since the age of 13, she cut her daily smoking from a full pack to half a pack during Global Corporate Challenge. And she took the fitness option more often. For example, she cut out the drive of more than 500 metres to the mail box, walking there and back instead. She also did a lot more walking with her kids, whom she confesses spend a bit too much time playing video games. “It brought myself and my kids closer, and gave them a better understanding of exercise and healthy eating,” said Steele. “For me, it was about family. Just the time and the chance to be able to talk my kids, and the carefree relationship we had (while exercising),” she says of Kyle, 9, and Kaylee, 5.

EMC news - Sandvik Materials Technology Canada has finished first in Canada’s Global Corporate Challenge. The pedometer-counting, health-in-the-workplace program attracted 96 Canadian companies. Sandvik’s 49 participants made up seven teams of seven employees each. Sarah Schuster of Global Corporate Challenge and health and safety consultant Sue McLaren were on hand recently with Sandvik president Mike Hall to congratulate the participants and praise the movers and shakers in the four-month program that wrapped up in September. The leading calorie-burner was utility operator Sherri Steele from the Scatter Butts team. Bill Gillies, who led the individual standings for several weeks, emerged second and last year’s winner, Brian, Dunbar, was third. The top 10, in order, was completed by Manny Daigle, Clare Kavanagh, Karen Newell, Ian Fraser, Anna Fraser, Karen James and Ernie Millar. The top three teams were My Harem, runner-up Sandvik Stingrays and third-place Burning Soles. My Harem walked a total of 18.6 million steps, or 11,961 kilometres. TOP INDIVIDUAL In taking the individual top spot, Steele, 37, says the program may have been a crucial first step toward quitting a 24year smoking habit, improving her fitness and bringing her closer to her two children. In placing first, Steele averaged 35,000 steps daily by biking, walking or swimming. She finished with 2,475 kilometres for a total of 3.9 million steps. Second-place Gillies took 3.7 million steps. The average person on a desk job is said to take 3,000 to 4,000 steps a day, but Sandvik participants pummelled that average. They averaged 20,655 steps per day, for the highest step average among 96 participating Canadian

lie Recoskie with the Guardian Angel Award, Ernie Miller with the Silly String Award for pulling the best prank, and Johnny McGregor with the Lawn Mower Dedication Award. The words ‘lawn mower’ were added because he purchased a push lawn mower so he could accumulate more steps during the challenge. The Spirit Award went to Bill Gillies, who has taken up running and is always on the move, but more energized, because of the corporate challenge. His daily average was 32,000 steps, but one day he surpassed 65,000. Captain of the year was Ian Fraser of My Harem. Unable to attend the awards ceremony, because of work commitments overseas, Fraser sent an email. “Congratulations, girls,” he said to his teammates. “You are receiving this award because of the dedication and true spirit of team work you displayed daily throughout the course of this event … thanks for the excellent four months … enjoy the moment.” As captain of the year, Fraser was awarded a gift certificate to replace a worn-out pair of sneakers.

She attended the ceremony at the Ottawa Conference Centre where Nolan and Visneskie were both pleasantly surprised to hear who the award winner was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the pleasure of working with him, as chair of the health committee, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always working for the client,â&#x20AC;? said Visneskie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone can do their job, but when someone steps forward to do that extra, you notice.â&#x20AC;? Not only that, she says Nolan has helped put Renfrew County on the map, the evidence being local programs that have been copied elsewhere. Progress made by the

grams, through continuation and expansion of the deployment that we currently have in place, and through recognition of a broad base of understanding of paramedic service both provincially, federally and internationally.â&#x20AC;? As fellow graduates of Algonquin Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paramedic program in 1991, Leahey has had plenty of opportunity to see Nolan in action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I was to summarize what makes Mike a leader, he understands the requirements that we are facing,â&#x20AC;? said Leahey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But he also has great vision as to what the future needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Another great aspect of his leadership is that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s able to drive that change forward.â&#x20AC;?

Renfrew County chief paramedic Mike Nolan is the 2012 recipient of the Richard J. Armstrong Leadership Award. countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paramedic service includes expansion of deployment numbers to decrease 91-1 response time; the advent of a community paramedic model that includes wellness clinics; public access to defibrillators across the county; establishment of community single-member response units; introduction of advanced care paramedics to staff; and improvement in the quality of ambulances driven by the paramedic service.

Nolan will receive the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Jubilee Medal later this month. He has also received a GovernorGeneral award for exemplary service. He has been the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief paramedic since 2005. The Richard J.

“Training is a key component to providing safe and effective responses to an emergency situation,” said Arnprior fire chief John Okum. “With the vast changes occurring in today’s society, it is imperative that volunteer firefighters remain current with new technology, changes in the community, and safety requirements. This generous

contribution by Enbridge Gas Distribution will assist the department in acquiring valued training aids to enhance the current training program.” Arnprior Mayor David Reid pointed out that volunteers in small communities such as Arnprior are crucial in order for the town to provide quality, essential services to its residents and businesses. “This is especially true in the case of our Town’s Volunteer Fire Department,” he said. “I want to thank Enbridge Gas Distribution for recognizing their commitment and contribution to our community by helping to ensure that all our volunteer men and women firefighters are well trained and ready to take on the challenging tasks at hand.” “At Enbridge, safety is our priority and as part of our Safe Community program, we are proud to help bring Project Assist to the Arnprior Fire Department,” said Richard Logue, the company’s field manager. “The safety of the community is a priority we share with local fire departments and we commend their dedication to safety and are proud to offer

Project Assist to help enhance their training efforts.” NEW PROGRAM

Project Assist is a new Enbridge Gas Distribution program designed to supplement existing training for Ontario fire departments with volunteer firefighters. This year’s $100,000 donation will be shared by 20 Ontario fire departments with volunteer firefighters, including the Arnprior Fire Department. Funds will be used to purchase educational materials to enhance in life-saving firefighting techniques. The Arnprior Fire Department operates with 30+ volunteers who train and respond to approved emergency activities for the town. The department provides training to its volunteers on a weekly basis where volunteers commit to attend so they are prepared to respond to the needs of the community. Arnprior volunteers respond to about 130 emergency calls, 50 training sessions and various community events every year. The Fire Marshal’s Public

Fire Safety Council is a registered charity established in 1993 with a mission to help create “a world where no one is hurt by fire.” The council, chaired by the Ontario Fire Marshal and supported by the Office of the Fire Marshal, operates at arm’s length from the government and promotes fire prevention and public education through sponsorships and partnerships with various groups and individuals with an interest in public safety. COMMUNITY BOOSTER

prior and surrounding areas of the emergency or grandparent scam. Police have been receiving reports of frauds in the Arnprior area. An Arnprior resident reported receiving a phone call from a person claiming to be a nephew involved in an accident in the Montreal area, placed in jail and needed money sent to him to get out. Fortunately the money was not forwarded to the fraudster. The scam is the typical scenario that involves a senior receiving a phone call from a con-artist claiming to be one of their grandchildren or family members. The caller goes on to say that they are in some kind of trouble and need money immediately. Typically they claim being in a car accident, that there is a family funeral, they are having trouble returning from a foreign country or they have been arrested and need bail money. The caller typically asks that they do not want other relatives to know what has happened by asking, “Can you please help me? I’m in jail (or hospital/ or in some type of financial need). But don’t tell Dad. He would kill me if he found out, please send the money ASAP. I’m scared.” Wanting to help, the victim sends money to the fraudster by a money transfer company such as Money Gram or Western Union. Variations of the scam exist, such as an old neighbor or a friend of the family, but predominantly the emergency scam/grandparent scam is directed towards seniors. Another variation reported by Lanark County in Mississippi Mills had the victim receiving a phone call from a male claiming to be a lawyer by the name of Walter Green. The person informed them their son had been in an accident and is in jail charged with impaired driving. The caller then tells the victim that in order for their son to be released on bail all they have to do is wire a money order of a specified amount to Western Union. In this case the victim sent a $4,100 money order to Western Union, only to find out they had been defrauded by the phone scam. OPP say you can protect yourself and avoid becoming a victim against such a scheme by not sending any monies to anyone until you confirm the call is legitimate. If in doubt, the OPP advise you to call your local police service to confirm the information. Further fraud and other preventative tips and information can be found on the OPP website at www.opp.ca or the Canadian Anti Fraud Center at info@antifraudcentre.ca or by phone at 1-888-495-8501.

County of Renfrew

EMC sports - Arnprior’s Junior B Packers split two games over the weekend to hold onto a share of first place in the Eastern Ontario Junior B Hockey League Valley division. Arnprior, Renfrew and Perth sit atop the hotly-contested division standings with 17 points each. Stittsville is nestled close behind with 16 points. Arnprior’s Jared Steege is by far the top-scoring rookie in the league with 18 goals and 16 assists for 34 points in 16 games, which puts him in second place in overall league scoring behind Perth winger Brett Madigan. Packer Derrin Lehoux is in fifth place, also with 18 goals. He has 32 points in 14 games. ARNPRIOR 8, METCALFE 5

Wells Going Dry Across the County

On Friday, Nov. 2, the Packers outscored the Metcalfe Jets 8-5 in Metcalfe. Arnprior’s Jared Steege had a big night with three goals, including two on the power-play. Also scoring for the Packers were Alex Bourassa, Jeffrey Stanton, Reid Murphy, Derrin Lehoux and Jonathan Smith. Goalie Kyle Lamothe was in nets for Arnprior. PERTH 4, ARNPRIOR 3

The Packers’ luck didn’t hold out, however, as the team fell 4-3 to the Perth Blue Wings at the Nick Smith Centre on Sunday, Nov. 4. It was a close game with backup goalie Mike Cheslock on the ice for Arnprior, but it just wasn’t meant to be with a Perth goal with three seconds left in the second period being the backbreaker. Perth, which had been behind 3-1, scored the only goal of the third for the win. Scoring for Arnprior were Jared Steege, Derrin Lehoux and Jeffrey Stanton.

Despite recent rainfall, the groundwater levels have not shown any significant level of recharge, and they are below normal across the County. Even if we experience significant rainfall this autumn, our groundwater levels may not re-charge adequately for the winter months.

Well drillers recommend taking action now, before freezing temperatures arrive and difficulties and costs increase.

COMING UP

Water Conservation Target - 20% Reduction in Water Use.

This Friday, Nov. 9, Arnprior takes on Clarence Creek at home in the Nick Smith Centre at 8 p.m. The Packers travel to the Clarence Creek Recreation Centre on Sunday, Nov. 11 for an afternoon game that begins at 2:15 p.m. Clarence Creek is in last place in the Metro division with 14 points.

Suggestions for residents relying on groundwater and wells: If you have a dug well where you can safely and easily measure the level, record it and check weekly to determine if your well is recharging or if you are at risk of losing your water supply. Turn off electrical power to pump prior to measuring. Do not attempt to measure levels in a drilled well - consult a well drilling contractor. Indicators of low water: lower than normal flows, sediment in the water or cloudy water all indicate low well water levels. You should immediately consult a licensed water well driller. The Renfrew County & District Health Unit is recommending that you have a water quality test performed to ensure your groundwater is safe for human consumption.

Mosquitoes win football cup, spectators turn up to celebrate EMC sports – The West Carleton Wolverines Mosquito football team, with 14 Arnprior area players, has made history. The team of 11- and 12year-olds became the first from West Carleton to win an Ottawa area A Cup football title Sunday, with a 7059 shootout win over Nepean Redskins. Hayden Tripp of Arnprior, who scored an amazing 11 touchdowns, won the MVP award for the Wolverines. There was a wonderful turnout of spectators supporting the Wolverines at the Sun-

day morning game at the Millennium field in Cumberland. The Wolverines had upset the Ottawa South Raiders 4229 the week before to reach the finals. West Carleton and Nepean both had 6-2 records in the regular season. The Wolverines club was formed in 1993 by Bud McCrae. Many of its players have gone on to star in high school football. Several players, including Jesse and Nathan Andrews, have played major roles in the rise of Arnprior District High School to a high school football power recently.

They are our family, friends and neighbours, everyday citizens yet so much more. They are the brave men and women who have put their lives at risk to protect and serve our country. Remembrance Day ceremonies allow former soldiers to remember and salute their comrades who died in combat, and reminds all Canadians to consider the sacrifices that these people have made, and the tragedies they’ve endured, on their behalf. However, we shouldn’t forget those who survived, and those currently deployed in other operations. The men and women of the Canadian Forces have demonstrated time and time again that they can rise to any challenge.

This year marks 60th anniversary of the Cenotaph A large parade formed up at the Legion Hall on Daniel Street where the Ladies Auxiliary of the Legion, Arnprior Boy Scouts and Cubs, Girl Guides and Brownies, and the Royal Canadian Legion band marched along with the veterans to the new cenotaph where Remembrance Day services were held. This was a proud occasion for the Arnprior Legion Branch 174 and all those who had contributed to the erection of the cenotaph as a symbol and testament of sacrifice of the men whose names were inscribed upon it. The cenotaph was completed only one week before the ceremony.

Laurie Dougherty Arnprior McNab-Braeside Archives

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It was B. V. Bedore who first wrote about the need for a cenotaph in a guest editorial published in the Nov. 29, 1951 Arnprior Chronicle. Bernie Bedore, who had served in the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm during World War II, pointed out that Pembroke and Renfrew had already erected a memorial to the fallen where veterans could properly honour their comrades on Remembrance Day. LEST WE FORGET

He lamented that â&#x20AC;&#x153;perhaps next year Arnprior will have her cenotaph, her symbol of remembrance which will say to her citizens and all who pass, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lest We Forgetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? The idea must have resonated with many people in the town, as only two months later the Arnprior Chronicle reported that â&#x20AC;&#x153;definite action toward the establishment of a Memorial Monument for Arnprior and District men who gave their lives in two world wars has been taken by the Arnprior Branch of the Canadian Legion.â&#x20AC;? A committee led by J. J. Greene D.F.C. soon got to work with the help of Mayor Robert Simpson and reeves of the surrounding townships. Discussion as to what type of monument, the cost and the most suitable location took place around town and an extensive door-to-door fundraising campaign was undertaken by the committee members. Representing World War II were Ian Malloch, Orme Belvins, Howard Patterson, and Gerald Stokes. World War I representatives consisted of J. Clarence Irving, Harold Short and Dr.

Support for this community project was widespread and immediate. By May of 1952 over $1,000 had been raised by canvassing organizations

such as the local Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institutes and private citizens. A Tag Day held in conjunction with the annual regatta raised over $400 in donations for the Cenotaph Fund. Most debate around the new cenotaph centred around where it should be located. Many people wanted it in the park, while others felt it should be situated at Town Hall or on other property owned by the

Town. There was also discussion about whether we needed a cenotaph at all. Some people felt that the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital had already been built as a memorial for the same purpose. Chairman J. J. Greene acknowledged that the hospital had been financed by contributions of a memorial nature but pointed out that the new

cenotaph would be a suitable place of remembrance and worship for Remembrance Day services. Stores in Arnprior closed from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 11, 1952, so that all staff could attend the first memorial service at the new Arnprior and District Cenotaph located in front of the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital.

The grey, limestone structure contained the names of 60 Arnprior and District men who died in World War I and 80 men who died in World War II. In July 1953, a special unveiling ceremony took place to officially dedicate the memorial. The Arnprior Legion formed a committee to repair and update the cenotaph in 1998. A large crack in the base of the monument was fixed and a new granite slab was installed over the deteriorated limestone face. Volunteers from the Arnprior & District Archives (later the Arnprior McNab-Braeside Archives) worked with the Legion to carry out historical research associated with updating the cenotaph by adding names previously missed. Today, the cenotaph remains the historic gathering place for this community to come together each year to honour those who died in World War I, World War II and the Korean conflict.

Farmers hear about youth mental health, addictions Sabine Gibbins sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Same message, different role. Senator Vern White, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former police chief, told guests at the Arnprior Federation of Agriculture (ARFA) how a seven-month long waitlist for youth facing substance abuse demons is too long. The AGM took place at the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre Oct. 26. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to wait seven months,â&#x20AC;? said White, who assumed the role in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embarrassing.â&#x20AC;? White was the guest speaker during the federationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting, which saw the election of new board members and a recap of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highlights. Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren and West Carleton-March Coun. Eli ElChantiry also addressed the crowd. A roast beef dinner was served by caterer Tracey Jardine of Fitzroy Harbour. The AGM also featured a comedy routine from West Carletonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jean McCerron. ARFA is a local branch of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest voluntary farm organization representing more than 37,000 farmers throughout the province. The farmer-centred organi-

zation, based in Guelph, plays a key role as an advocate for Ontario farmers, championing their needs and interests through government relation, lobby efforts, community representation and more, according to its website. YOUTH NEED SERVICES

Since his time as top cop on the Ottawa Police Service, White has been one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main forces behind project s.t.e.p. Since its 2008 launch, the project has raised $3 million to help build two residential treatment centres for youth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one for francophone youth supported by Maison Fraternite, and one for anglophone youth, run by the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre in West Carleton. The organization is now focused on its support, treatments, education and prevention program in area high schools, and through different youth academic programs. Although his job as senator contrasts sharply from his previous police role, Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission remains the same: to find resources for youth affected by addictions and mental health. He acknowledged his two political allies in the room â&#x20AC;&#x201C; El-Chantiry and MacLaren â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and told the audience how dedicated the two men were to their ridings.

Youths!

SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND

Senator Vern White told those gathered how important it was for the city and province to find solutions to help youth affected by mental health illnesses and addictions.

Adults!

Since Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last visit to the ARFA AGM a few years ago, the challenges facing the city have not diminished; although the community is more educated than ever on the issue, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The truth is we still face some of the same challenges,â&#x20AC;? White commented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care whether you live in Arnprior or rural Ottawa, you are facing the exact same challenges (as the rest of the city). â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I came here five years ago, I said our biggest challenge for the city was residential treatment programs for young people with addic-

tions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lots of people think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re somebody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kids we are talking about, but â&#x20AC;Ś I can tell you thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not one of you in here who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know somebody whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impacted by addictions, and/or mental illness.â&#x20AC;? Sixty per cent of drug users are young offenders, White said, with 40 per cent alone experiencing mental illness. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear how desperately more services such as residential treatment centres are required in Ottawa, he pointed out. If anyone were to go two blocks east of the ByWard

Market in downtown Ottawa, they would get a cruel reality check, he said. There, he continued, thousands of youth indulge in criminal activity just to get a few dollars to satisfy their crack cocaine addiction. But despite this reality, White said the police force has demonstrated its passionate stance on the issue and continues to patrol it. However, White said, he would rather see this issue resolved sooner rather than later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will tell you, as the Province of Ontario, we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to wait seven months for our children to get the help they deserve.â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We should not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We live in one of the richest countries in the world, in one of the richest provinces, up until a few years ago, and we still have not gotten our heads around how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to help these kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And many people will say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re somebody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kids, but I will tell you, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not â&#x20AC;Ś The minute theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re addicted, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a spiral. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to be vigilant in order to be successful.â&#x20AC;? The other challenges the country and province will see is the rising population of First Canadians and new Canadians, he told the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re growing four and six times faster than our mainstream population,â&#x20AC;? he said.

The province needs to figure out a way to invest in these people better, he added, especially when it comes to training and education. For his part, El-Chantiry thanked the board members for their continued hard work, as well as for hosting an enjoyable evening. MacLaren expressed his dissatisfaction over the status quo of government, which was prorogued on Oct. 15 after Premier Dalton McGuinty announced his resignation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The government is being irresponsible,â&#x20AC;? said MacLaren, who added the closure of two gas plants was done for the Liberalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; political gain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a crime against democracy,â&#x20AC;? he said. He predicts a spring election. After the guest speakers addressed the audience, ARFA elected new directors for another year to the board, who include: director Eva Yantha, director and secretary-treasurer Susan Crawford, OFA vice-president and zone 8 director Debra Pretty-Straathof, president Ernie Smith, director Jessica Schouten, OFA member services re[ Zone 8 Brian Hamilton, director Jim Norton, second vice-president Harvey Hill, vice-president Tom Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourke, director Ben Jardine, director Brian Foley, director Willie Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourke, director Bruce Hudson, and director John Eastman.

Family says big thanks

‘Hoot for Hospice’ Saturday

Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle - A local family is expressing big thanks to the community for its support of a cause near and dear to their hearts. Sarah and Jim Antonakos’s son, four-year-old Nicholas, has Mitochondrial Disease, a little-known disease that for Nicholas means he is blind, but does hear and has limited mobility. The family recently promoted the ‘Turn Your Porch Light Green’ campaign in September during Mitochondrial Disease awareness week and were thrilled with the results. At Home Hardware, where owner Neil Slater offered to sell the green bulbs, they sold out of every bulb they could get from the warehouse. About 225 green bulbs were sold. “On top of that, Neil donated back the $225 in sales from the bulbs to MitoCa-

Such a fantastic gesture!,” said Sarah. “Driving around Arnprior and seeing all of the green bulbs was really special to me. It is amazing when people who don’t

know you personally support you. I was really touched. I want people to know that I noticed and appreciated it. MitoCanada is hoping to make this a national event next year!” The family also recently

travelled to Hamilton for the Walk or Roll fundraiser, an even that had its most successful year with $50,000 raised. More than 400 people attended the event, one of MitoCanada’s major annual fundraisers.

EMC events - The third annual Hoot for Hospice is scheduled to take place at the Renfrew Armouries this Saturday, Nov. 10. The Hoot is a “ladies’ night out” where women from across the county come out to have a hootin’ good time while the men are away hunting. All proceeds go to Hospice Renfrew. The Hoot is one of its three major fundraisers. Hospice Renfrew provides end-of-life care, free of charge, to people from all over Renfrew County and beyond. The government funds about 40 per cent of the operating dollars, so Hospice Renfrew is highly dependent on funding from these events and other support from the broader community.

EMC lifestyle - This past week was an exciting time for Arnprior and the surrounding areas with the World Broomball Championships playing. Carleton Place, Beckwith, Almonte, Pakenham and, of course, Arnprior all played host to the best broomball players in the world and it was our mission to make sure youth got to know all about the sport of broomball. Each school adopted a country, and with this that country’s players came to the school to visit the students and talk about their country, the sport of Broomball and to answer any questions the students had. Walter Zadow started off the week, with the Swiss team, and students came to the Nick Smith Centre in swarms to watch the game. Later that day, John XXIII, who adopted Canada, got a visit from Yellowknife, and for a smaller group of students, they were

Friendly visitors help seniors become socially interactive Liz Wall Seniors at Home

EMC lifestyle – Living alone can become a time of loneliness for many. It is the time in ones’ life that social interaction becomes so important, especially for seniors. According to Stats Canada, of the 4.3 million Canadians who are 65 years of age or older many live alone. Seniors living within communities right here in the Ottawa Valley have benefitted from a lifetime of social and loving interaction. But as life moves on and things begin to change, life as a senior can be a challenge to many. Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home has a program that offers a chance for those living alone to become, once again, interactive with others. Open to all seniors age 60 and over, disabled or with special needs, no matter the age, ‘Friendly Visiting’ can be of benefit. We have a group of dedicated volunteers in the waiting to develop a lasting friendship. The ‘Friendly Visiting’ program is designed to link folks, one on one, who may need a little extra attention in their home. Have you recently been released from the hospital and are alone or a senior without family close by? If yes to either question, we would love to hear from you. We will connect you with one of our devoted volunteers so you can begin forming a friendship, a lasting friendship that can be of benefit not just to you but to the volunteer as well. Along with home visits we offer ‘Telephone Visiting and Security’. The same dedicated volunteers are carefully linked with seniors and will spend the required time as requested by that person encouraging and reassuring of any concerns they may have of loneliness or isolation. These volunteers may call daily, weekly or as often as the client wish-

by with the agency’s little Elves providing surprises along the way. The tickets cost $10 per person and must be purchased by Dec. 7 as attendance numbers are required for the caterer. It is open to all seniors, disabled and individuals with special needs, no matter the age. Tickets are available at our office, 106 McGonigal St. West, Arnprior from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. The donation of a nonperishable food item brought the day of the party would be greatly appreciated.

es. Please note that all of volunteers with the Friendly Visiting Program, as with all our programs, are referenced checked and have provided our agency with an up-to-date and clear criminal record search. For more information, contact program co-ordinator Patti Jennings at 613-623-7981 or email pattijennings@cssagency.ca The Mission of the Agency is to encourage independent living and enhance the quality of life of seniors, disabled and those individuals with special needs, no matter the age. Living up to this mission, some of the programs we offer include ‘HOT Meals on Wheels’(officially started Oct. 15), frozen meals, grocery shopping, foot care clinic, income tax, computer classes, friendly visiting, telephone security, information and referral assistance, and home help/home maintenance. All of the programs fall under the direction of Jennings.

BROKERED WORKERS

Do you love working outdoors and getting out in the community? Our Brokered Worker Program connects seniors and disabled adults who need assistance with both indoor and outdoor work to qualified outdoor home maintenance workers. We are currently recruiting friendly, dedicated individuals to provide fall leaf raking and winter snow removal services. For more information about the Brokered Worker Program, contact Jennings at 613-623-7981. Other social programs offered include Diner’s Club, Friendship Days, Community Garden and the annual Christmas Party.

Sugar bowl represented so much more than egg money for Mother ing hers alone though. Sadly Mother soon found out what she meant. Now, about the egg money. It was Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenge to keep money in the sugar bowl. That meant that every week she went into Renfrew and peddled her wares doorto-door. At the first, Mother thought that that meant just peddling eggs. But Aunt Bertha was quick to show her how she could add greatly to her egg money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just from selling eggs, you know,â&#x20AC;? she told Mother. Everyone in Renfrew likes a fresh chicken now and again Aunt Bertha said. Soon Mother added sticky buns, freshly churned butter and homemade soap to her wares. Once she tried selling small braided rugs and hand sewn aprons, but she soon found out the women of Renfrew were just as busy as she was making rugs and aprons. Aunt Bertha said the money could be used for anything she wanted: new print from Walker Store or maybe a fresh pair of lisle stockings. But Mother had other plans for her egg money. She longed to go back to New York. Not to stay, of course, which was always a fear deep in my heart, because

Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories BY MARY COOK

she talked about the place so often and I knew how much she missed the life she once led. No, it would be just for a visit, to spend a few days with her friend Rosie and maybe go to an opera again or visit the museums she loved. Yes, she longed for just one trip back to New York and her wish was that one day there would be enough egg money in the blue sugar bowl to go back for a visit. COUNTING COINS

Often, at night, she would take the bowl down from the back-to-the-wall cupboard and spread the money out on the oilcloth on the kitchen table. She would count and stack the coins in order and if there were any bills, she would flatten them out and put a salt shaker on them to hold them flat. Then she would write the amount and the date on a slip

of paper and tuck it into the sugar bowl with the money and back it would go on the shelf in the cupboard. There would be a big sigh. Never would there be enough money for the trip back to New York. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because she would dip into it for something frivolous like silk stockings or a new hat - the reason was much simpler than that. It would be because Father would have had to have some of the few coins she had worked so hard to accumulate. Father never had more than a few cents in his overall pockets. So when something wore out, like it often did on the farm or a new piece of harness was needed, inner tubes to replace the well-patched ones on the car or even maybe a new plow point, it was into the egg money Father would go. There would be so much sadness on such a day. I always dreaded being in the

kitchen when that happened. Father would come in from the barns, stop just inside the kitchen door and pause as if he was undecided where he was heading. If Mother was busy at the stove or at the wash tub, she would pause for just a moment and a look of sadness would come over her face. Father would slowly walk over to the cupboard and take down the blue bowl and take out a few coins or one or two of the bills, cram them into

his pocket and quietly leave the house. Not a word would be spoken. We would hear him leave the yard in the wagon or buggy and I would know he was headed into Renfrew or to Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store with a few coins from Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s egg money to get what was needed to keep the farm going. It was at those times that I would know once again Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream of a trip back to her beloved New York was as far away as ever.

Hospital auxiliary selling tourtieres for Christmas EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Renfrew Victoria Hospital Auxiliary is reaching out to Arnprior area residents, asking them to support its annual tourtiere pie fundraiser. Tourtieres are traditionally eaten at Christmas but are good anytime especially if you happen to get surprise visitors, says the auxiliary. There is a long history surrounding the â&#x20AC;&#x153;secret recipeâ&#x20AC;? auxiliary members use. A lady in her 90s, who got it from her grandmother, passed it along to a friend. And one day it ended up in the hands of a RVH auxiliary member. The tourtieres sell for $13 and can be ordered by calling the RVH Gift Shop at 613-432-4851, ext. 291, or Doris at 613-4322448. Closing date for ordering is Nov. 16. Money raised will go towards the auxiliaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to the hospital.

EMC lifestyle - It was a blue sugar bowl. Much larger than the one we used every day on the kitchen table. Father said it had been in his family as long as he could remember. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t used for sugar anymore, though. It was where Mother kept her egg money. It had a matching jug too, but it just stood beside the sugar bowl and was never used. I figured the reason Mother used the sugar bowl for her egg money and not the jug was because it had a lid on it. To protect what was inside, sort of. Goodness knows we kids would never dare go into the sugar bowl without permission, although sometimes, if we had tired of looking around the Eatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue in an evening of sitting around the kitchen table, Mother would let me take down the sugar bowl and count her egg money. Mother never heard of egg money when she moved to that backwoods farm in Renfrew County after living 18 years in New York. But it was Aunt Bertha and Mrs. Beam, too, who told her about saving a penny here and a penny there. It was to be hers alone. Mrs. Beam snorted when she told mother about it be-

For her life more abundant, For us a guiding star Love, Hailey, Cam & Tee

The moment that you died Our hearts split in two. The one side filled with memories The other side died with you. We often lay awake at night When the world is fast asleep And take a walk down memory lane With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy... We do it every day. But missing you is a heartache That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts And there you will remain. Life has gone on without you But it will never be the same. For those who still have their husbands and dads Treat them with tender care. You will never know the emptiness As when you turn and he is not there.

They grow â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em big in Pakenham Ralph Shaw, of Carleton Placeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sister Cities committee is all smiles aboard a trailer hauling not one but two giant pumpkins. Shaw was spotted at Nicholsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s store in Pakenham recently, transporting the ginormous gourds in preparation for one going to sister city Franklin, Tennessee, U.S.A., and the other taking its place in the annual Halloween parade. The pumpkins were actually grown near Shawville, Que. The Sister City program promotes the agreement between communities in different countries to encourage the expansion of activities designed to help each other develop an understanding of historical, lifestyle and cultural similarities and differences.

Yoga helps pet rescue group Valley Animal Rescue launched Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

They can meow or bark. But if Penny, Delilah, Simon, Chance, Theo and Shelby could talk, they’d tell you that many of their fellow cats or dogs would also like to have reliable homes. Each of the above have found a foster or permanent home in the Ottawa Valley. Meanwhile, word of mouth, flyers and advertisements tell you that a mountain of people continues to seek homes for cats and dogs across Renfrew County and area. Knowing that, members of the newly-formed, not-forprofit organization known as Valley Animal Rescue are reaching out to identify foster and permanent families for pet animals in need. Since late June, VAR has found foster or permanent homes for 24 cats or dogs, in Renfrew County communities and beyond, including Orleans, Pembroke, Petawawa, Egan-

ville, Renfrew and Arnprior. “There are far too many homeless animals in the Ottawa Valley,” says VAR president Valerie Hutchinson of Douglas.With co-operation from area animal shelters, VAR continues its work while fundraising to support its efforts. Costs include spaying or neutering, full vaccination and microchipping of all adopted animals. As fellow board member Julie Bilton of Eganville says, Also, all dogs are given a SAFER behavioural assessment, checked for parasites and groomed, including flea-bathing, if required. Fundraisers to support VAR’s work will include a Sunday, Dec. 2 Christmas bazaar at the Renfrew Royal Canadian Legion, where there will be several vendors and the chance to have your pet’s photo taken with Santa Claus.
