It’s done

Collision concerns move west as Highway 417 completed through Arnprior A group of Arnprior District High School students travelling to Europe in the spring to visit Canadian war graves are looking for items from local families to help to help honour the fallen. – Page 19

EMC news – As of this week, Highway 417 now officially stretches past Arnprior, almost to Campbell Drive. The completion of the four-laning through the Arnprior area has prompted inevitable concerns the funnelling of traffic from four to two lanes just west of the Division Street overpass could result in serious collisions there. The removal of the construction zone speed limits and the erecting of the 100-km-h speed signs on the eastbound stretch have allowed highway traffic to fly by the town at a much higher speed. To slow traffic a bit as it approaches the end of the four lanes, the westbound speed limit has been reduced to 90-km-h at White Lake Road. The four-laning project certainly has had its benefits when it comes to safety. The White Lake Road-Daniel Street overpass has finally brought to an end the series of serious crashes at that deadly intersection. The Division Street overpass has also eliminated another dangerous highway crossing. The removal of intersections with traffic lights has greatly improved the flow of traffic along the highway through Arnprior. It wasn’t too long ago that highly frustrated drivers were frequently mired in long traffic line-ups at lights at White Lake Road and County Road 29. During summer weekends, the lines could stretch for miles at busy times. See MORE COLLISIONS Page 3

EMC news - There is a growing campaign to find an Arnprior woman who has gone missing in the United States. Sarah-Jane Stavenow left Ottawa airport on Friday, Nov. 16 and sent back word that she had landed safely in Los Angeles, California. Stavenow was to contact fiancé Ryan Kearney after she had checked into her room at the Ramada Hotel, but that never happened. Stavenow was due to arrive home Wednesday but didn’t show up at the airport for her flight. There has been no activity on her credit cards and her cell phone appears to be turned off, say her family. Her Facebook account has also seen no activity during the days she’s been missing. Her mother, Suzanne Andrews-Sylvestre of Arnprior, made an impassioned post on Facebook Wednesday morning.

EMC news – The Christmas season officially begins in Arnprior this week with the annual Legion Santa Parade this Saturday, Nov. 24 and the setting up of the Salvation Army kettle Wednesday. The parade will start at its usual time, 6 p.m., and take the normal route to and from Winners Circle, down Daniel Street and up John Street. The Arnprior Legion is still looking for more floats, but act quickly. The registration deadline is this Friday, Nov. 23 (call 613-623-4722 to sign up). Santa will give out treats to the kiddies afterwards at the Legion, where the Ottawa Valley Concert Band will be entertaining anyone who shows up. Legion members and supporters will be collecting food and cash donations for the Arnprior District Food Bank along the parade route.

It is the season to give as well as to receive, and with this in mind, the Salvation Army has set up its donation kettle and an angel tree at the Arnprior Mall again this year. The cash donations will go toward care packages and gifts for needy families this Christmas, as well as bolstering the Army’s emergency fund. Take a card from the Angel tree and return with an age and gender appropriate gift to help a local child have a merrier Christmas. Donors can contribute financially or choose an angel from the tree and purchase a gift for a child of a specific gender and age. Last year the local Salvation Army campaign helped 118 families, 58 from Arnprior and 60 in Renfrew. Arnprior’s families in need consisted of 85 adults and 72 children.

More serious collisions expected Continued from front

The issue of trafďŹ c safety was raised at Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s McNab-Braeside council meeting during a discussion over the township ďŹ re departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acquisition of auto extrication equipment. Both ďŹ re chief Ken Walton and Mayor Mary Campbell agreed it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprising if there are serious collisions at the new end of the four-lanes, which is located in the township. Campbell had noted, with surprise, that the ďŹ re department had not been called to any highway crashes in the third quarter of this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an anomaly,â&#x20AC;? agreed Walton.

The highway construction slowing trafďŹ c in the area may have been a factor. However, Campbell said it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to last now the work is completed and drivers are speeding up again. The McNab-Braeside Fire Department received the extrication equipment thanks to a donation. It already has light extrication equipment, but calls in the Arnprior or Renfrew ďŹ re departments if heavy equipment is needed. With the possibility mutual aid agreements might soon no longer provide auto extrication free, it is beneďŹ cial for the township ďŹ re department to have the equipment, explained Walton. Fire chiefs in

the county will be voting on the auto extrication issue next month, he said. Nevertheless, some councillors were wary about the department using the equipment. Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie wondered if there were any extra costs involved, noting that once the service is offered, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not likely to be withdrawn. Therefore, when the equipment wears out, the ďŹ re department would have to replace it, she noted. Councillors Aldene Styles and Bob Campbell said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like more information before sanctioning its use. Coun. Brad McIlquham said he supported the use, noting â&#x20AC;&#x153;we have a number of accidents here and we should be able to handle them.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Campbell said she was â&#x20AC;&#x153;cautiouslyâ&#x20AC;? leaning to supporting the use. Arnprior Mayor David Reid has pointed out the town is shouldering the burden of auto extrication on Highway

Traffic speeds up as the highway eastbound changes into four lanes just west of Arnprior. 613.623.5903

17 in this area, she said. As McNab-Braeside has more miles of highway within in its boundaries, maybe it should take it over, she added.

Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas campaign off to great start EMC news - Chris and Peter McCluskey kicked off the Arnprior District Memorial Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas Campaign by presenting a cheque to president and CEO Eric Hanna for an impressive $7,200. The money was raised through the Smile Cookie Campaign at both Tim Hortons locations in town. The Partners in Caring Christmas Campaign has set a high goal for the 2012 Campaign. A new gastroscope is required in the operating room and this piece of equipment costs $42,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am thrilled that Partners in Caring had dedicated this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign towards the purchase of a Gastroscope. This piece of equipment allows for superior visual clarity and is much needed at Arnprior Regional Health,â&#x20AC;? explained internist Dr. Cathy Greenough. A gastroscope will allow Dr. Greenough to screen for any abnormalities in the stomach. In addition to the Christmas Tree Lighting Friday, Dec. 7 at the hospital, the festivities will include Christmas Carols with Darlene Thibault and Suzana McNeil, hot chocolate compliments of Tim Hortons, barbecued hot dogs, with Santa arriving in a special sleigh compliments of the Arnprior

Fire Department. Parents should bring their cameras to get a picture with Santa. The family of the late Mr. Irvin Woermke will light the trees in his memory. Members of the community are encouraged to also purchase lights in memory of their loved ones or in honor of a staff or physician at Arnprior Regional Health. For more information about the Christmas Tree Lighting, contact Karen Smith at 613623-7962, ext. 362. In support of the Christmas Campaign is the Decorate Your Door contest. Cash prizes will be awarded to three winners. The contest is open to anyone with a completed registration form and a $15 entry fee. It is a great opportunity to show your Christmas spirit and hopefully win one of the cash prizes ($450, $225 or $150). The contest is open to anyone who has a door, be it a business, home, church, school or apartment. Registration deadline is Friday, Nov. 30. The winners will be announced at the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Dec. 7. The tree-lighting ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. on the front steps of ADMH. For more information about Decorate Your Door, call Ted Kelly at 613-623-3665.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just looking for people to support the campaign and also volunteers to work the kettle,â&#x20AC;? said Salvation Army Major Janice Bishop Wednesday as she set up the kettle in front of the Hart Department store. The kettle will be at the Mall until just before Christmas. The Salvation Army could do with some more kettle volunteers in Arnprior. Call Jane 613-432-7721 if you are interested. In a national news release launching the campaign, the Salvation Army said its aim is to raise both money and awareness for the millions of Canadians currently living in poverty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to encourage all Canadians to dream of a world where everyone has access to lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basic needs,â&#x20AC;? said Commissioner Brian Peddle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope this campaign will demonstrate to the donating public

Group unveils draft design plan for downtown Public has time to comment on Streetscape recommendations before Nov. 30 deadline Sabine Gibbins

EMC news – A plan to beautify the downtown core was revealed Arnprior council meeting Nov. 13. The draft Streetscape and Landscape Design Plan (SLDP), a project undertaken by the MMM Group of Ottawa, was presented to council during a special segment of its meeting held at the Nick Smith Centre to accommodate public attendance. Jonathan Loschmann, senior landscape architect with MMM Group, who serves as project manager for the SLDP, explained to councillors and public members how since July they’ve been working with the town and stakeholders to craft the plan. The total projected cost to implement the draft plan would be $5.33 million. “Tonight I’d just like to provide to you an overview

of the project’s intents,” said Loschmann. “And provide you with a summary of the engagement both with stakeholders and the public that was undertaken.” He added council was not making any decisions that evening. The plan acts as a first step in the reconstruction of the downtown, starting with John Street North and Elgin Street West. The core downtown area being revitalized includes Elgin Street West between Madawaska and Daniel streets, and John Street North between Daniel and Madawaska streets. The details of the finalized project will come before council at a meeting in December. The SLDP, said Loschmann, is to serve as a technical tool to guide design and expenditures of future streetscape and related infrastructure in the downtown core.

“Kudos to council and town staff in that this plan addresses pointed recommendations of the 2011 Community Improvement Plan,” he continued. The project has been created in close consultation with town staff, its accessibility committee and the municipal heritage committee, as well as with the public. Loschmann explained to council how 11 guiding principles shape the plan. These includes pedestrian realm, the addition of trees and vegetation, screening of utility and off-street parking areas, universal accessiblity, outdoor seating, comfortable multimodel transportation, views and sightlines, character-defining signage, building form, consistent and unified streets, and gateway improvements, such as public art. The entire scope of the project has unleashed a positive buzz around town, added

Loschmann. PLANS

John Street – East of McGonigal • Greening – street trees • Widening sidewalk 2m for easier travelling • Maintain existing relationship of street parking • 3.5-m wide travel lanes • New LED pedestrian lighting • Unified streetscape elements/furnishing • Universally accessible John Street – West of McGonigal • Reinstatement of sidewalk: 1.5-m sidewalk/ path of travel • Maintain existing relationship of on-street parking (north side) • 3.2-m wide travel lanes (existing)

sible Possible design features for the SLDP include bench seating, café-style seating with tables at select locations, integrated waste/recycling unit, LED pedestrian lighting with banner arms and hanging baskets, and wayfinding signage. Additionally, more features could include bump-outs at select crossings, concrete parking stalls, decorative crosswalks, vegetated planters with seasonal planting, and public art. Overall, councillors were pleased with Loschmann’s presentation and made no negative remarks concerning the project. The public has time to comment on it, but should provide input by Nov. 30 in order for it to be considered before it goes to council next month, said town planner Robin Smith.

Council opposes Carss Street development, church signage Sabine Gibbins

Strike and Reid were part of the majority who voted against the proposal. CHURCH SIGN

Council voted against granting an increase in the size of a sign owned by the Roman Catholic Episcopal Church. On Oct. 22, councillors were asked to consider approving a minor variance that would allow for an increase to a sign advertising St. John Chrysostom Church on Daniel Street South. At the time, council deferred the recommendation, as they wished to receive comments from surrounding business owners who could be affected by the change. “I look at this and I want to say ‘yes’, but I am going to say no,” said Mayor Reid. “You look at the existing signs and they’re already 78 per cent larger than the existing bylaw

allows for, and now they want to go to two times what the existing bylaw provides for.” However, this recommendation calls into question the need for a revision of the town’s sign bylaws, he said. Council defeated the recommendation.

well as a number of public education events at various locations in the community. Additionally, fire prevention and protection officers attended 16 different training courses to expand their job knowledge. HOCKEY MECCA


The Arnprior Fire Department recorded a successful Fire Prevention Week. Fire prevention officers Cory Nicholas and Rick Desmaria presented their report to council, which heard the department had visited 267 homes throughout the 2012 smoke alarm campaign. In total, 17 alarms and 14 batteries were distributed and 181 bags were given out. The fire department also conducted 12 station tours totaling 252 visitors, 25 classroom visits at area schools with Sparky the fire dog, as

Town council gave the green light to put in a bid to host three major women’s hockey events in 2013. Director of Recreation Glenn Arthur asked council to consider placing a submission for the town to host three tournaments: the Clarkson Cup from March 21 to 24, the Women’s World Hockey Championship – Pre-Tournament Camp from March 27 to April 1, and the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association Provincial Championship from April 4 to 7. He also asked council to direct the corporate services/

treasurer to include funding in the amount of $5,000 per event for a total of $15,000 towards a sponsorship for each event in the 2013 draft budget submissions. The department would apply for funding from the Eastern Ontario Development Program to help fund the projects, he noted. This request comes hot on the heels of Arnprior and neighbours recently hosting the successful World Broomball Championships. NEW AWARD

Town council voted to replace the Mayor’s Community Awards with a Volunteer of the Year Award. The town’s awards committee decided to recommend the deletion of the Mayor’s Community Awards, since they are very similar to awards presented by the Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce.



EMC news – Arnprior town council voted against the development of a townhouse development at its meeting Nov. 13. The development, proposed to be located at 62 Carss St., raised the ire of nearby residents who said it did not fit in well with the street’s character. The owner proposed to demolish the semi-detached dwelling on the site and construct a three-unit freehold townhouse. The developer also requested that the lands be rezoned from an R1 to an R3, which would permit a single, semi-detached duplex or triplex or townhouse or apartment dwellings on the site. Decisions were originally deferred from the Oct. 22 meeting for council to seek clarification on the delivery of public notices, as well to

receive more information from the town’s public works department in respect to infrastructure in the area. “I indicated some of my concerns at the last council meeting,” said Coun. Ted Strike. “This subdivision dates back to the turn of the century … It wasn’t until the early ‘50s and early ‘60s they started seeing an R3 (type of zoning) in this particular area. Intensification has its limit. “I think an R3 in this particular property is not right and I won’t be supporting it.” Mayor Dave Reid echoed his council colleague’s sentiments. If the road allowance was different, he would support it, he said, but in this case it is too narrow. “There are issues now,” he said in regards to parking woes on the street. The mayor indicated he would support it being grandfathered as an R2 to further intensify the street.

Seed growers step up to help farmers in need The Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association is making a difference. Association directors voted recently to give $15,000 to the Hay East campaign working to alleviate a feed shortage in Renfrew County and other parts of Eastern Ontario after this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought. It costs an average $3,000 per truckload to move the feed from

western Canada. The seed growersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; contribution will hopefully be the start of a trend to support a federal funding program whereby the government matches community contributions dollar for dollar. The program, for example, will see the seed growersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; $15,000 donation trigger another $15,000. That would cover 10 transport trips.

As an association press release explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a slogan of farmers working for farmers, they felt it was just the kind of program the association should take part in.â&#x20AC;? Funds provided by the Seed Growers to Hay East are raised at the annual Ottawa Valley Farm Show, which the association has sponsored for more than 85 years.

The association noted that, appropriately, the farm show debuted in Renfrew County as a seed fair and competition. Meanwhile, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs reminds farmers that the Ontario Hay Listings Service is an asset to farmers who are having a difficult time trying to find the hay needed to

sustain their herds. To access the listing, visit or contact the Ontario Forage Council at 1-877-892-8663. Our ancestors left their mark in barn-raisings, threshing bees and cooperation. As a truly rural community, support for our agricultural community is important.


Give credit to Korean War veterans To the editor: Re article in Nov. 8 Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC. I wish to thank Laurie Dougherty for her fine article re the 60th anniversary of erecting the cenotaph in Arnprior. We need to be in touch with our history. I take exception, however, to the wording of the last paragraph which ends: â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś to honour those who died in World War I, World War II, and the Korean Conflict.â&#x20AC;? To term what took place in Korea a mere â&#x20AC;&#x153;conflictâ&#x20AC;? is inaccurate, unjust and dishonours those who fought and died there to free South Korea. Sixteen nations, including Canada, came to the aid of South Korea in her hour of need. All too many gave their very lives. Permit me to quote

some casualty figures: South Korean Forces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 200,000; American â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 55,000; Allied â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 3, 500; Canada â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 516; Chinese and North Korean â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 1,500,000; Korean civilians â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2,000,000. Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution, though small compared to the U.S., was significant. In one engagement, at a place called Kap Yong, Canadian soldiers of the Second Battalion P.P.C.L.I. particularly distinguished themselves. In fighting off a much superior force of the enemy, they were key to forestalling yet another Communist offensive aimed at the capital, which already changed hands four times. For their stubborn defense, they were awarded a unit citation. This is an honour rarely

given. The commander of the U.S. Marine Corps said on one occasion: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have the sea on my one flank, and the Canadians on the other. At night I sleep well because I know that in the morning theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll both still be there.â&#x20AC;? Next year we, the surviving veterans of the Korean War, observe a significant milestone of our own. July 27 marks the 60th anniversary of the ceasefire. On behalf of the 35,000 Canadians, soldiers, sailors, and airmen who served there in war and on peacekeeping, 516 of whom gave their lives, I respectfully request that people give credit where credit is due in making reference to the Korean War. Ted Graham Korean War veteran Arnprior

Get informed about the asphalt plant application To the editor: In 2011 neighbours of the Braeside Quarry took Miller Group to court because of adverse effects they suffered from a temporary asphalt plant in the Braeside quarry. They won that case, hands down, slam dunk as this newspaper said. Judge Sauriol found Miller guilty on all charges â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nuisance, trespass and negligence. Judge Sauriol agreed that residents have a right to reasonable use of their property. After all, they have paid for it, pay taxes on it, pay upkeep; they should be able to enjoy it, not have to rent somewhere else for the season, as some have, to get away from adverse effects of pollution. It is not a bad smell that people must escape, it is serious pollution. Some people even say they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about the Miller trial, saying the judgment is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;before the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Legal opinion says otherwise. This decision, handed down in November 2011, is available to the public on line. It can be discussed! Until a judge rules on the Miller appeal, this ruling stands. There was a long involved process begun by the company that owns the quarry, the Miller Group, to ask McNab-Braeside Council to allow a permanent asphalt plant on this location. This process is now coming to crunch time.

Some people get the impression when they hear the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that a permanent asphalt plant is a big building where people go in, do their job and come home again. Actually, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;plantâ&#x20AC;? is a big machine, basically, where sand and finely ground aggregate are mixed with bitumen, a tarry petroleum product; a lot of heat is added to make it all molten and out comes asphalt. Some people have been under the impression that this will give work to local labourers. How many? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;plantâ&#x20AC;? will require a foreman, an asphalt plant operator, a loader operator who fills the hoppers with aggregate, etc. and a handyman. How many is that, four? These are seasonal jobs, if and when there are contracts. Will they hire locally? Who knows? The team for the temporary asphalt plant was from out-of-town as were many of the truck drivers. I hope this letter will add some facts to the discussion. Pollution, unchecked, will have long and far reaching effects. Now is the time to get informed. Thank you. Regina Rolph McNab-Braeside

Largely forgotten veterans honoured by inmates about our involvement as part of the Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War. What intervention you say? Well Canada participated in that conflict as part a 14-nation force comprising over 255,500 personnel. Our contribution that went overseas to Russia was brigade sized numbering 4,192 soldiers. They landed in 1917 as the Canadian Siberian Expeditionary Force (C.S.E.F.). Most of the troops were stationed at Vladivostok, but another 1,100 were assigned to the Murmansk area and 41 more were positioned in the Baku region. In the two years of the deployment, front line fighting was sporadic and minimal, however, 14 Canadians died in theatre and are buried in Russia in a Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery at Vladivostok. But closer to home are two additional graves in British Columbia that belong to soldiers who died from circumstances associated with

Public needs to hear from experts reviewing the quarry reports To the editor: Believe it or not, it has been nearly seven years since we first heard about the Miller Braeside Quarry expansion plans. The application is finally complete and it now goes before council for their review and decision. This is how it works. Miller experts write studies on things like the hydrogeology of the ridge (our aquifers), traffic generated by the expansion, air quality because of the industries put into the quarry like the permanent asphalt and concrete plants, acoustics because of loud machinery, etc. Then the Township hires more experts, paid for by Millers, to read the studies and write a review of them. These are the peer reviewers, the people who have the scientific knowledge to ask the right questions. Then Council must read all these studies, discuss them and ask questions. Miller has said their experts will be available to answer any of Council’s questions on their studies. Fine. But here’s where the process breaks down. The peer reviewers have indicated questions and concerns about the studies and written those in their reports.

So Council should be able to ask these people in person why they had concerns. But that isn’t going to happen because Council will not hear from the peer reviewers. Why not? Bruce Howarth, County planner, the person orchestrating this process, says, no, no, no, you don’t need to hear from them. Well, as a member of the public, I disagree. I read the Air Quality Study and was interested to note what the peer reviewer said about it. Here was one of his concerns. Computer modelling is used to guesstimate how bad emissions will be at each nearby house. But the peer reviewer said, Wait a minute, you have used an open pit mining model, which has a ratio of 1:10, depth to width. But the Braeside Quarry has a ratio of 1:55, depth to width! How are these two comparable? They aren’t! So I think our Council and the public have the right to hear from not just the proponent’s experts but the experts hired to critique them. Should be fair, don’t you think, not biased in favour of the proponent.

the ‘intervention.’ These graves are located at a location west of Victoria on a lovely peninsula of land known as William Head. While we can visit the cemetery in Vladivostok, the general public can’t visit these two graves in Canada. The reason is because they are located in a prison administered by the Correctional Service of Canada. The remains of these two veterans lie side by side under the spread of a magnificent Douglas Fir Tree in the cemetery that was part of the Pacific Quarantine Station. They are respectfully tended to by inmates incarcerated therein and

each year on Nov.11, there is a Remembrance Day ceremony to honour these soldiers. While most of us do not know much, if anything about our involvement in Russia in 191718, prisoners at this penal institution do.

To the editor: While it has been almost one week since Remembrance Day (Nov. 11), we tend to put our observances on the back burner and enter into another calendar driven cycle without thinking much about the adage we all know that is associated with Remembrance Day. “Lest We Forget ... Lest We Forget.” It is just human nature, I suspect, and like other observances we have, it seems normal to do so. Having said this, we can’t honour all those who served and died in the service of our country if we really don’t know much about such history. So I pose this question to one and all who might read this letter. What do you know about the Canadian mission to Russia during the civil war that was fought there? I suspect not much. In fact I would not be surprised to learn that Canadians know more about the MackenziePapineau Battalion in the Spanish War than

*OHN3T. !RNPRIOR /.   


Be open-minded, but make sure you make informed choices To the Editor: Ms. Mueller-Codeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter in defense of homeopathy (Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC, Nov. 15) covers so much territory, yet manages to say so very little of substance. Still, since sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone to so much trouble, it would be churlish of me not to respond. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start with the numbered points, so useful in giving the illusion of a reasoned and organized argument, and meander from there, shall we? 1. The function of the media. Ms. Mueller-Code maintains that the function of the media is to inform and not to judge. This redeďŹ nition stands in absurdly stark contrast to every pundit, columnist, and radio call-in host that ever drew breath. The media is not an encyclopeadia of justthe-facts. The reality is far more complex, and has been since before William Randal Hearst. And even though a discussion of objectivity in the media could prove quite interesting (I personally feel that a bit more fact-based reporting would be a good thing), I am at a complete loss as to what any of this has to do with homeopathy. 2. Our constitutional rights. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid Ms. Mueller-Code is on another tangent here, and one that is equally wrong-headed. There is really no call for confusing the constitution of Canada with an Ayn Rand novel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Choiceâ&#x20AC;? is not the central tenet of our constitution, and my Canadian sensibilities (peace, order, and good government, eh?) are offended by such a blatantly American-style appeal. Furthermore, to claim that â&#x20AC;&#x153;nobody has any jurisdiction over anyone elseâ&#x20AC;? is dangerously wrong. Last I checked, we were a civil society governed by laws. Not only do courts and police have jurisdiction over those who would harm others or themselves, but there are countless codes and regulations that make sure our food and water wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t poison us, our businesses wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cheat us, our institutions will serve us fairly, etc. I suppose a dialogue about choice and free will (without trying to shoehorn the constitution into the picture) might be fun, but again, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a tad mystiďŹ ed as to what it has to do with the main point of contention, which would be:

3. The effectiveness of homeopathic remedies. Ms. Mueller-Code seems reluctant to offer any concrete proof, scientiďŹ c studies, or factual arguments in favour of homeopathy. Perhaps the recent class action lawsuit against homeopathic manufacturer Boironâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advertising and the resultant $12 million settlement has given her cause to avoid any statistical claims. Instead, she tells us that since homeopathy has been around for about 200 years, it must, therefore, be safe and effective. Just like international communism, that jar of mayonnaise that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid to touch in the back of my fridge, and anything else that happens to be around 200 years old. We are also informed that homeopathy works because the royal family has been using it for generations. This would be the same royal family with members that take pictures of their naked drunken Las Vegas parties and dress as Nazis for Halloween, so you just know their judgment is sound. Another reason homeopathy works, according to Ms. Mueller-Code, is because there used to be a place called the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital. Mind you, they changed their name to the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine over two years ago, probably in an effort to stop tying themselves exclusively to an increasingly discredited practice. But still, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;royalâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;hospitalâ&#x20AC;? in their name for the longest time, therefore homeopathy works. Wow! Ms. Mueller-Code closes by encouraging â&#x20AC;&#x153;everyone to become more open-minded in order to make their own educated choices.â&#x20AC;? I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree with her more. The more that people educate themselves, the closer homeopathy gets to the dustbin of history. By all means, learn all about alternatives and keep an open mind. Just, please, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be so open-minded that your brain falls out. Andrew Fogarasi Arnprior

Algonquin Park provides life-long memories EMC lifestyle - As many of you know, I hold a great fondness for Algonquin Park. In addition to being one of the most beautiful places on this planet, it is home to myriad plants and animals, many not occurring much farther south in Ontario. Every trip to Algonquin provides lifelong memories, many involving encounters with its wild inhabitants. Over the years I have seen much of park’s vast interior, yet one of my favourite haunts lies right along a public road. Only 6.2 kilometres long, the Opeongo Road contains stunning beauty and harbours a

wealth of wildlife. For much of its length, the road follows Costello Creek. This slow-moving waterway winds through floating mats of northern peatland with a dramatic cliff for a backdrop near where it flows under the Opeongo Road. Recently my good friend Rory MacKay and I visited the Opeongo Road. We arrived a dawn to find frost painting bog plants white and thin ice coating much of the water. A single Bohemian Waxwing, a rare visitor to Algonquin, sang out its sizzling notes as it flew over the creek. Soon after, we heard ice

cracking and soft whistles. We snuck down a point to see what was making the commotion. To our delight the origin was a group of eight otters. The aquatic weasels romped atop the ice, periodically wrestling with each other. Many minutes passed before they vanished into the frosted vegetation. Farther along the creek, we came across a muskrat near to a Ring-necked Duck, two American Black Ducks and three Hooded Mergansers. The muskrat obviously did not want company, for it repeatedly swam toward and lunged at the ducks, causing them to

move farther away. Just behind the ducks, a mink briefly loped along the edge of the ice. A second muskrat swam into the scene and it too harassed the undoubtedly puzzled ducks. As we worked our way along the creek, six Gray Jays and a small band of chickadees descended on us. The birds landed around and even on us; they obviously were used to being fed. As we had nothing to offer, they eventually lost interest and moved away. All morning northern finches called overhead as they flew across the sky. Red and White-winged crossbills, Pine Grosbeaks, and Common Redpolls were heard but

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way not seen. Other birds were more obliging: a Black-backed Woodpecker landed on a tall larch across the creek and a male Spruce Grouse plucked grit from the side of the road. The remarkable day ended

with one very exciting encounter. A Northern Hawk Owl had been seen that very morning, so we diligently scrutinized the tops of spruces along the creek for its distinctive large-headed, long tailed silhouette. Our efforts were rewarded in late afternoon. At first the diurnal owl perched nearly a kilometre away but eventually moved to our side of the creek, offering brief but excellent views. When we finally left we came across a second mink at the other end of the creek. Once again, Costello Creek revealed its magic. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@

Prepare now for winter driving

Trial starts for driver involved in fatal Hwy. 17 crash EMC news - The trial of a Valley woman charged after an Ottawa man was killed last year in a head-on collision near Arnprior has begun in Ottawa court. Dr. Christy Natsis, 46, a prominent Pembroke dentist and hospital booster, has pleaded not guilty to impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death and driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit. Her westbound SUV hit an eastbound Dodge Dakota on Highway 17 just west of the White Lake Road intersection in the evening of March 31, 2011. The crash killed the other driver, 50-year-old Bryan Casey of Ottawa. He was the father of three children under 12. Police, Arnprior firefighters and Ottawa Paramedics attended the scene. Natsis was arrested by police at the scene. The trial started Monday with the prosecution calling witnesses who had observed Natsis earlier that evening at the Crazy Horse Restaurant in Kanata. Natsis is being defended by well-known lawyer Michael Edelson. A series of witnesses followed as the trial continued throughout the week.] Among those called to the stand were other motorists on the highway that night including those who stopped at the scene of the collision, Paramedics and police officers. The trial is expected to continue well into next week.

EMC news - The Ontario Provincial Police has identified the human remains found in a wooded area of Greater Madawaska Township Dec. 11. At first the police were unable to say if the decomposed body was male or female, but a post-mortem conducted last Wednesday in Toronto determined the remains are those of Fouad Nayel, 28, of Ottawa. He was reported missing by family members in June 2012. The OPP is treating the case as a homicide. Police began investigating the death after the Renfrew OPP detachment responded to a call about 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The call concerned the discovery of human remains found near Norton Road, just north of Calabogie.



The OPP and the Ottawa Police Service are conducting the investigation, under the direction of OPP Detective-Inspector Kevin Corcoran of the Criminal Investigation Branch. The OPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency response team (ERT) is assisting in the investigation. Numerous OPP officers were on the scene, with various other units assigned to the case. These units included the Renfrew OPP crime unit, East Regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crime and canine units and the OPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forensic unit out of Smiths Falls. Anyone with information about the investigation is asked to contact the Renfrew OPP crime unit at 613-432-3211 or the OPP at 1-888-310-1122. If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477. - With files from OPP.

EMC news - Despite the sometimes balmy weather of the last week, the temperatures are forecast to dip below freezing this weekend. Winter is about to land in this area and now is the time to prepare your vehicle for winter driving, urge the OPP. Preparing yourself and your vehicle for the harsh winter weather ahead can go a long way in reducing collisions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something the OPP sees far too many of every winter. â&#x20AC;˘ Install four winter-rated tires before the first snowfall. They improve driving safety by providing better traction, braking and handling during frost, snow, slush, and particularly under icy conditions. Installing four winter tires provides greater control and stability. â&#x20AC;˘ Have an ice scraper or snow brush in your vehicle to keep your windows, signals and lights clear. â&#x20AC;˘ Top up your windshield washer reservoir and keep an extra one handy. â&#x20AC;˘ Keep your fuel tank at least half full, so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run out of gas should you be-

EMC events – It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And what better way to celebrate than to get into the holiday spirit and decorate with dazzling Christmas lights and décor? For the second year in a row, Arnprior RE/ MAX broker Ted Kelly is encouraging area residents, businesses and organizations to participate in a holiday decorating contest. Kelly, who is chair of the Arnprior Regional Health Partners in Caring Foundation – which raises funds for Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital - said the main goal behind the second annual contest is to get the campaign more exposure, as well as get everyone into the holiday season. “Personally, I just wanted to raise the holiday spirit, besides showing the different ways the hospital supports the community,” he said. The contest is open to Town of Arnprior, Township of McNab-Braeside, and the former townships of Pakenham (now part of the Town Mississippi Mills) and Fitzroy (now part of West Carleton-March ward in the City of Ottawa) homes, businesses or organizations, said Kelly, which is the catchment area for the hos-

pital and foundation. Last year, the contest saw about a dozen entries take part in three different categories. Kelly hopes to see more get involved this year in all three. “I’m starting to slowly get a reaction from people,” he said. Last year’s inaugural event drew a myriad of unique entries, which were nothing short of spectacular, he said. One family out in the country in the White Lake area decked out their house with sound and light, remembers Kelly. A registration fee of $15 goes to the Partners in Caring Foundation, and all those interested are asked to apply no later than Friday, Nov. 30. Competition judging will take place from Dec. 3 through to Dec. 7, with judging criteria based on the most original concept, most environmentally friendly, and most holiday spirit. Prizes of first place ($450), second place ($225) and third place ($150) will be awarded, with a special prize of four Ottawa 67s tickets presented to the house with the best holiday spirit display. Winners will be announced at the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital Dec. 7 at 6 p.m.

EMC news – The drought is waning in Renfrew County, but officials are still concerned about the low water situation. At its bi-weekly meeting last week, the County of Renfrew Water Response Team (WRT) discussed the latest surface water flow rates, precipitation levels and the ongoing problems facing County residents and businesses who rely on groundwater sources for water. While the latest data shows that surface water flow rates in the Petawawa, Madawaska and Ottawa Rivers have recovered to near normal levels, the Bonnechere River is still flowing at a rate below normal. Precipitation rates have increased across the County to

near normal levels and the improvements in the natural water system have led the WRT to determine that the County is now in a Level 1 drought, down from a Level 2. This is the lowest level of drought severity in Ontario, on a scale of 1 to 3, and reflects the improving water situation faced in the County. However, there are still serious concerns about groundwater levels and reports of wells going dry continue to be received by local well drillers and the WRT. The declaration of a Level 2 Drought was made by the WRT on July 19, and since then the County has been in the lowest point of a serious low water situation, which ac-

Emon, like current Warden Sweet, has said that minimum stays of two years in the position would allow for more continuity of service. However, there is a formal nomination process every year for the office of warden, during which any member of county council is eligible after being nominated by two fellow council members. At one time, Emon lobbied to have the warden elected at large by all County of Renfrew voters.

Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon will be the next warden of Renfrew County. Chief administrative officer Jim Hutton announced last week that the Calabogie resident will assume the position at the Dec. 11 inaugural session of county council. Emon was the only member of county council nominated for warden prior to the 4 p.m. deadline on Nov. 13. When notified that he was acclaimed to the office of warden, Mayor Emon said, “It will be a great honour for me to be seated in the warden’s chair after the December meeting; one I will treat with respect and thoughtfulness.” Emon also noted there’s a “super staff” at the county upon which he says he’ll lean heavily for advice and information. Emon also said he’ll actively consult current Warden Bob Sweet of Petawawa and past wardens Don Rathwell of Whitewater Region and Janice Visneskie of Killaloe-Hagarty-Richards. “I wish,” said Emon, “for council and staff to continue in the tradition of our many wise predecessors, having established mutual respect for each other and individual opinions, continued respect for our guests at council and our staff, and for our taxpayers during our dayto-day interactions with them.” The inaugural session will begin Dec. 11 at 10 a.m. At that time, Emon’s inaugural speech will outline his goals and vision for the one-year term of office.

tually began almost two years ago. The severe summer of 2012 began in 2011with lower than normal snowfall and rainfall, rapid spring meltdown and run-off and low summer precipitation and hot, sunny weather. With the low snowfall levels in 2012 and lower than normal spring and summer rainfall, the accumulated depletion of rivers, lakes, streams, wetlands and groundwater produced the Level 2 drought conditions and costly damage to crops, forests, hydro electric generation, tourism and recreation. Preliminary estimates of the losses to farmers on corn and soybean crops alone stand at $6 million. Hay and other forage crops along with apples and livestock also suffered severe losses. The WRT and political leaders across the County are still very concerned about the overall surface water, precipitation and groundwater levels despite the positive data and the move to Level 1. Once the ground freezes this winter, the recharging of groundwater supplies will be greatly reduced until the spring and this may threaten wells across the County. A normal or higher level of precipitation this winter and a slow, steady spring meltdown and run-off is required to enable groundwater and surface water levels to reach normal or higher levels. To ensure the County moves out of a Level 1 Drought altogether, and avoid falling into Level 2, or even worse Level 3, the area must experience normal or higher spring and summer rainfall and temperature patterns in 2013. The WRT continues to advise residents and businesses who rely on groundwater to regularly monitor well water levels and their water quality, volumes and flow rates.

ADHS to honour veterans by taking family items to Europe Teacher wants to hear from families interested in participating in ‘trinket exchange’ Co-op student

EMC news – Captained by Madame Nicole White, French teacher at Arnprior District High School, 40 high school students and five other supervisors will travel to northern France in early March 2013. This ‘Paris Trip’ is a venture the French department undergoes every second year with the intentions of implanting wordliness, language and culture into a select few eager students. This year White has commissioned a new addition to the trip, a twist that’s been dubbed ‘a trinket exchange’. The exchange will be in honour, in love and in appreciation of Canadian veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice. The students and teachers will visit the Bény-sur-Mer Cemetery near Caen, France. The young Canadian men buried there fought in the Second World War. The objective of this new initiative is to receive a trinket (a locket, a dried flower, a coin, or something pocketsized, really) from a family member, or family friend of a Canadian soldier buried in this cemetery near Caen. Each student or supervisor will take one, two, or even three of the trinkets with them in their travel luggage.

Upon arrival of the Canadian War Cemetery, each student will locate the grave of their respective family, place the trinket on the grave, take a picture, gather a vial of soil from the grave, and return the vial and the picture back to the family in Arnprior. The trinket, of course, will stay. White, the teachers, and students at Arnprior District High School acknowledge the contributions from Second World War veterans. Each year, veterans of the war meet with students to discuss the happenings of their services overseas. White emphasizes this “trinket exchange” is Arnprior District High School’s contribution to the community, in honour of those veterans. Private Raymond Arthur Wall was a rifleman in the Canadian Military during World War II. When a tank moves from one position to another in an urban setting, infantry patrols are required for an extra set of eyes. Wall was one of these patrollers beside a tank. Wall, just 25 years old, trod on a landmine, and perished in the line of battle. Wall’s nephew, Percy Wall, lives in Arnprior today. “When I received the photograph and the vial of sand from Nicole White, it was


White asks that if you wish to participate in this token exchange, to contact her directly at Arnprior District High School, by calling 613-6233183, or by emailing whiten@ The absolute latest White and her company of adventurers may receive these trinkets from the families of Arnprior to go to Europe is Feb. 25.


ADHS students will visit graves of Arnprior area servicemen killed in action in Europe. Among them is the tombstone of Raymond Arthur Wall, killed in May 1944 at the age of 25. He was the son of Patrick and Elizabeth Wall of Arnprior. Anyone interested in having the students take a family item to leave at the grave site should contact teacher Nicole White.

Gun registry waste of money: MP EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With the annual hunt now taking place across the Upper Ottawa Valley, many constituents have contacted Cheryl Gallantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office asking for an update on the current status of the long-gun registry, says the Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MP. While the long-gun registry has been scrapped and most of its data destroyed, it still has proponents, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so the fight is not over,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Earlier this year, with the election of a strong, stable majority Con-

servative government, we were finally able to pass legislation to scrap the long-gun registry,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am pleased to confirm that as promised, as of Oct. 31, all the inaccurate, outof date data for non-restricted firearms that was collected for the registry has been destroyed for all of Canada except Quebec. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The registry never solved a single murder,â&#x20AC;? maintained Gallant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead it has been an enormous waste of police officersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; time, diverting their efforts from

patrolling Canadian streets and doing traditional policing activities.â&#x20AC;? Gallant said that gun-control proponents worried that scrapping the longgun registry after so much has been spent would be a waste. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, that money is already wasted, and the registry costs kept growing,â&#x20AC;? she said, pointing out it costs about $100 million a year to operate â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of burning up more money, Canada can spend it on things that will actually do some good.â&#x20AC;?



Liberals take aim with letter blitz questioning Gallant, Tory policies


In another letter, Liberal Party Critic for Agriculture and Agri-Food Frank Valeriote charged that Gallant supported this summer the â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant: cuts to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in the omnibus budget bill. She should have opposed the cuts because â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadians deserve to feel confident that their food supply is protected,

just as our farmers and ranchers deserve safe and stable business,â&#x20AC;? he wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one wants to see Canadians get sick from eating tainted meat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so why is Mrs. Gallant supporting cuts that remove vital resources from food safety professionals and creating a space where the industry is responsible for more and more of its self-regulation? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waiting for Canadians to get sick is not a food safety strategy,â&#x20AC;? he wrote, referring to the XL Foods beef recall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Liberals support our scientists and professionals who are on the front line of food safety and call on the Mrs. Gallant to do the same. Gallant does not respect Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s democracy OMNIBUS BILL ABUSIVE

Senator James Cowan, Leader of the Opposition in the Senate, wrote a letter to media accusing Gallant and the Conservative government of not respecting democracy because it is limiting debate on major policies by jamming them into one 443-page omnibus budget bill. The bill amends everything from the Navigable Waters Protection Act to the Canada Labour Code, he pointed out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By combining completely unrelated measures in a single massive bill, the Harper government is hoping that many of the provisions will not be noticed, or that Canadiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; outrage will be buried â&#x20AC;&#x201C; todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s news story, forgotten tomorrow.â&#x20AC;? Noting that in the U.S., 42 of the 50 states prohibit excessive omnibus legislation, he said when the Liberals proposed a motion to place reasonable limits on omnibus bills, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mrs. Gallant refused; she stood with her Conservative colleagues and voted that motion down.â&#x20AC;? Cowan said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadians expect Parliamentarians to do their job â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to scrutinize legislation, to listen to Canadians, to seriously debate proposals, and to make changes where changes are necessary. That is how the best laws are made. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is time to deliver a message to the Conservative government: respect our democracy, and respect Canadians. No

more abusive omnibus bills.â&#x20AC;? TV ADS WASTEFUL

Liberal Party of Canada Treasury Board Critic John McCallum took aim at government advertising. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For Canadians the return of new primetime TV this fall means more than new episodes of the Big Bang Theory and Amazing Race. It also means being treated to an exhaustive barrage of taxpayer-funded ads from the Government of Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say the government only advertises on TV, far from it,â&#x20AC;? he wrote.

See insert in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;But high cost advertising space on these shows seem to be favourite ad spots for MP Cheryl Gallant and the Conservatives.â&#x20AC;? McCallum maintained that the Government of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total advertising budget two years ago was bigger than the entire Canadian beer industry combined. Taking the federal deficit in mind, the government must have borrowing $416 million to pay for government ads over the last five years, he estimated, adding that taxpayers are now paying about $23,000 per day just to cover the cost of interest.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The federal Liberals have continued a letter blitz in which they criticize Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant for supporting Conservative policies in such areas as veterans affairs, food protection and government advertising. In the latest letter to the editor, Liberal Veterans Affairs Critic Sean Casey accuses Gallant and her party of neglecting veterans while using them as political props. The Conservatives spent $750,000 and five years dragging veterans through the courts over their pensions, he charges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They fought tooth-andnail to prevent them from getting what they earned and deserve. The government lost that battle when the Federal Court, in a stinging rebuke, ruled in favour of our disabled veterans.â&#x20AC;? Casey said the government is undermining the Last Post Fund, which is supposed to pay up to $3,600 to help cover veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; funeral costs. Not only is the amount inadequate, the Conservative governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rejection rate of over 60 per cent since 2006 for applications to the fund is staggering, he added. He noted there are reports funeral operators from across Canada are absorbing the costs because many of the veterans and their families â&#x20AC;&#x153;have been left twisting in the windâ&#x20AC;? by the government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine how much more decent and honourable it would have been had the Conservatives spent that $750,000 to help pay for the funeral costs of our veterans instead of fighting them in court over their pensions,â&#x20AC;? he wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Mrs. Gallant brags about their record on veterans, remind her of the truth. No amount of government spin can change that reality.â&#x20AC;?

Redmen finally lose It had to happen some time. The Arnprior District High School senior football team has finally lost after two straight Ontario championships. The Redmen’s season came to a halt last Friday as the team duked it out against the Gananoque Trojans in Eastern Ontario high school semifinal action. The Redmen fell behind 28-0 and despite valiantly fighting back lost 28-14. Clockwise, from top, hard tackling action at the Oattes’ field last Friday afternoon; Liam Dey aims to stop his opponent during the second half of play; and Nathan Toman races down the field, which was muddy and slick.

Area praised for hosting successful tournament Tiffany Lepack

EMC sports - Mississippi Mills councillor and committee member Paul Watters called the weeklong 2012 World Broomball Championship held in Arnprior and neighbouring communities a success with more than 1,000 people coming into Almonte and area for the tournament. “That’s pretty impressive for a small town,” said Watters. “Wherever they were coming from they now know Almonte and the Valley.”

The event was watched through international eyes as well, as Kunio Hatakeyama sports division/board of education official with Tomakomai City, Japan, was in attendance. The city will be hosting the 2014 Championship. Hatakeyama spoke very highly of the tournament at the Civic Reception on Oct. 30. “It is a very special and important event,” Hatakeyama said through a translator. “We want to learn from you. I can see that Almonte and the other Ottawa Valley communities have done a great job organizing the

EMC sports – The Arnprior District High School senior girls basketball team came close to picking up at least one win in the Eastern Ontario high school championships last week, but fell just short. The Redmen travelled to Kingston last Thursday to compete in the EOSSAA championship. In the first game against Sydenham, the girls played extremely well but were edged 41-37. In the second game, the girls jumped out to a 15-11 first-quarter lead against La Citadelle but found themselves down 16 at halftime. The girls played hard in the second half but ended up losing 49-35. “Congratulations to the senior girls on a fine season.” GOOD START

event. It’s great to see so many community volunteers. It is a world class event.” Rich Chiarizia, owner/player of Barrie’s Tavern from Minnesota, thought the organizing committee and volunteers did a fantastic job. “They are overwhelming generous; they have literally taken players to get equipment,” said Chiarizia. “They couldn’t be more accommodating … everyone on our team is enjoying their time here, and everything is great.” The praise for the tournament keeps rolling in. “Organizers are getting so many e-mails thanking us for the event,” said Watters. “Every team said it was the best event they’ve been to. It says so much for the 250 volunteers throughout the Ottawa Valley. Between the volunteers and the sponsors that contributed, they helped make it a major success.” While he singled out Colleen Good, Nancy Fulton and Leann Thompson for special praise, the noted that all of the volunteers were important to the success of the event. “Ottawa Valley volunteers are here when you need them.” The tournament was not only an example of the volunteers working together but also the four communities who co-hosted the event: Beckwith, Carleton Place, Almonte/-Pakenham and Arnprior. “It was amazing talking to Mayor Reid in Arnprior like he was my neighbour, same with Reeve Richard Kidd. You don’t see these people often but it was just amazing.” One downside of the tournament was that all 55 teams stayed in hotels mainly in Kanata, outside of the host communities. Watters noted that with a large tournament it is nice to have everyone at the same place.

“Almonte could probably use a hotel,” said Watters. “There was a big time loss of economic dollars to Kanata with people going out to dinner there and shopping.” LEARNING EXPERIENCE

Watters has already had a meeting with Mississippi Mills recreations director Calvin Murphy and will be doing a presentation on the advantages of hosting the event and what organizers can do moving forward to better equip the arenas. One of the things they will look to improve on is installing Wi-Fi in the arena. In the finals Arnprior was able to stream the games live but Almonte does not yet have that capability During preparations for the tournament with a number of local organizations, the goal was to stress shopping local and he thinks local shops felt an economic boost as well. “By bringing in over a 1,000 people to the downtown for the week it would have been a great economic benefit for the town.” A highlight for Watters was the kindness shown by all involved. “The people from around the world were so incredibly nice, you could sit and talk to anyone at anytime,” he said. Another highlight was having students from the area’s schools attend various games with the kids cheering on the players with clappers they handed out. “The players loved the fact that the stands were full for every game.” Two of the goals the organizers had were to successfully run a tournament of this size and bring broomball back into the Ottawa Valley, both of which Watters says they achieved.

Packers rebound, split weekend games CJHL team defeats Valley District-leading Perth 7-4 in Sunday match-up John Carter

EMC sports – The Arnprior Junior B Packers rebounded from a loss in Shawville last Friday to defeat Valley Division-leading Perth 7-4 Sunday at the Nick Smith Centre. The win moved Arnprior into second place in the division, two points behind Perth with a game in hand and one point ahead of third-place Renfrew. The Packers mounted a balanced attack for a change, with six different goal-scorers. However, as usual, rookie scoring star Jared Steege led the way with two goals and an assist. Perth took the lead when league scoring co-leader Brett Madigan scored half-way through the first period. However, Arnprior got that back 17 seconds later, when John McLean scored from Alex Serafini and Corey

Chaplin. The Packers took a 3-1 lead before the period was out with Derrin Lehoux scoring and setting up a power-play goal by Brock Burge. Perth pulled to within one early in the second. Arnprior responded again, with Eric Malloy and Kieran Peltier having Arnprior up 5-2 before the Blue Wings tallied a power-play marker late in the period. In the third, Arnprior sandwiched a goal by Madigan with two tallies by Steege to make the final score 7-4. Steege now has 24 goals, tops in the league. His 43 points put him three behind league leaders Madigan and Gatineau’s Dominik Robinson. Lehoux is fourth with 21 goals and 42 points. Perth outshot Arnprior 3827. Kyle Lamothe earned the win in net. Back-up Mike Cheslock

played the final 3:12, making three saves to protect the win after Lamothe received a

delay-of-game penalty. Perth had nine power-plays, while Arnprior had six.


The Packers bounced back for 2-0 and 3-2 deficits to twice tie the game, only to give up the winning Shawville goal with 2:29 left. Arnprior scored two quick goals near the end of the second period to tie the game 22. Lehoux had the first Packer tally and set up Jeffrey Stanton with the second. After the Pontiacs had taken a 3-2 lead early in the third, Lehoux and Malloy set up Steege for the equalizer. However, Tyler Charbonneau scored the winner for Shawville with time winding down.

The Packers outshot the Pontiacs 48-42, with Cheslock making 38 saves in the Arnprior net. It was a feisty affair with both teams each receiving more than 100 minutes in penalties. Packers Kyle Knox and Ryan Patrick were both tossed from the game. The Packers go on a fourgame road trip, playing at Perth this Friday, Renfrew Nov. 30, Stittsville Dec. 2 and Almonte Dec. 8.

Wolverines bring title home for first time in history Derek Dunn

EMC sports – A historic season for one West Carleton Wolverines team reached its culmination with a trophy and banner display at the year-end pizza party. The mosquito football team - comprised of members from Arnprior, Almonte and the Kinburn area where the Nov. 6 victory party took place – won the Ottawa area A Cup title. For the first time in club history. Coach Tim Sonnenburg is obviously proud of the kids, who defeated the Nepean Redskins 70-59 in a shootout on Sunday, Nov. 4 at the Millennium field in Cumberland. “This is a very special team of committed young men and one girl. They had excellent leadership and a great desire to win,” Sonnenburg said. “We’re a hard-nosed running team, with a big strong offensive line.” He said blockers gave quarterback James Scott was given plenty room over the year, and that Hayden Tripp was the best running back in the league. Fullback Justin Yee also won a shout out from his coach. “We knew we could score when the season started,” Sonnenburg said. But the team didn’t come together as champions until, ironically, they lost a significant game. It was at the Bell Memorial Cup, when they lost to a team that was better “that day,” he said. “That’s when they realized they had to commit,” he said. “They realized the had to be every bit as aggressive. Sometimes a loss can teach you more than a win.” West Carleton is by far the smallest territory in the league, drawing from a much small population base than those in the city. That isn’t lost on Tripp, who said it is the club’s first A Cup championship team in its 20-year history. “It’s the dream team, for sure,” Tripp said. “We had a lot of talent we never had before.” The McNab native intends to play football at Arnprior District High School next year. Blake Thompson of Almonte said the defensive side came together when everyone learned that tackling lower – clipping the opponents’ legs – was proving effective. He enjoyed the year, and recommends football for kids and teens. “It’s fast. It’s fun. Everything’s fun about it,” Thompson said. “It’s an all around good sport, and we had a great team this year.” The players are: James Scott, Emma Van-WykKucharik, Justin Yee, Tyler Nordin, Chad Brydges, Malcolm Duncan, Wes Sonnenburg, Tristan Ready, Matt La-

chance, Harrison Cooney, Eric McGill, Nathaniel Bickford, Kyle Sonnenburg, Hayden Tripp, Rayne Cram, Elliot Cooke, Michael Dolan, Anesu Latmore, Shawn Katzmier, Hugh Russel, Jay Gleeon, Andrew Smith, Cameron Weaver, Dalton Turner, Montana Reinhardt, Jose Rodriguez, Devin Conners, Michael Lightbody, Jack Hamilton, Blake Thompson, Jamie Smith, Will Matthews, Nick Porteous, Claudio Villeneauve, Liam Carnegie, and Jackson Hyland.


The smallest football club in the national capital area, the West Carleton Wolverines, draws players from the area, plus Arnprior and Almonte. In 20 years no Wolverine team in any age group has one an A Cup title. None, that is, until this year’s mosquitoes who capped off a stellar run with a shootout win against Nepean.

Local fiddler shares stage with Ashley MacIsaac Sherry Haaima

EMC events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kyle Felhaver learned early on you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up to a fiddle party without a fiddle. So when he and his mom Ann headed to Neat CafĂŠ in Burnstown Oct. 17 for renowned fiddler Ashley MacIsaacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show, his favoured instrument was safely tucked into his vehicle. Felhaver, a 35-year-old Ottawa Valley musician and teacher famous locally for his own fiddling prowess, was quite pleased when he got the chance to get up on stage with Cape Breton, N.S. born MacIsaac, known also for his skilled piano playing and step-dancing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been out to see a lot of concerts and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been lucky to have a chance to have a session or play a tune with a lot of good fiddlers and somebody said earlier on when I showed up at a party and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a fiddle â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Never show up to a fiddle event and not have a fiddle!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So I had one in the truck in case I wanted to have a jam,â&#x20AC;? said Felhaver. He had every intention of approaching MacIsaac and checking whether heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be up for a jam session after the show, but Ann, his biggest fan, beat him to the punch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really proud of her boys,â&#x20AC;? said Felhaver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So on an intermission she mentioned I had my fiddle there. He had a morning show in Ottawa the next day and had to leave right after the show but said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bout I have you up onstage with me,â&#x20AC;? It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take for Felhaver to haul the fiddle out of the truck and in no time the two were on stage performing a medley together in Neatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique venue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did a bunch of East coast tunes of his and then I hit a couple of Valley tunes,â&#x20AC;? said Felhaver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most fiddlers have a repertoire of common tunes that everybody knows. I sort of thought about it a little bit through the show and it turns out about seven out of eight of them he knew.â&#x20AC;? Felhaver has certainly followed MacIsaacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a fan of all fiddlers

White Lake fiddler Kyle Felhaver, right, joins Cape Bretonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ashley MacIsaac onstage recently at the Neat Cafe in Burnstown. The experience was very cool, said Felhaver, who joined MacIsaac in playing some traditional east coast tunes and also some Ottawa Valley favourites. PHOTOS SUBMITTED

and I learn a little bit off of everybody. So I have all his CDs and stuff and I went through the Rolodex of his tunes in my head,â&#x20AC;? he said. Much has been said about MacIssac and his wild child antics, but Felhaver found the musician to be quite pleasant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was really accommodating and we had a great chat afterwards,â&#x20AC;? said Felhaver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a heavy mutual respect among fiddlers and traditional musicians and I found that mutual respect was there.â&#x20AC;? The show itself was great. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had a nice little mix there. The first set was pretty rootsy, traditional east coast tunes and such. The second set went a little more cutting edge. He added a DJ on beat box and some rapping. It was Felhaverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first visit to the Neat cafĂŠ and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watched the business grow with interest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They get some really, really awesome acts. I would positively go back again - the sound was great and the atmosphere,â&#x20AC;? he said. The venue itself is a lot like playing a house party, he said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I recently got hired to do a house concert and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same sort of venue - a small audience in a small room with all eyes on you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very intimate and gives you the holistic musical experience.â&#x20AC;? Ann was thrilled with the experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boy oh boy it was fun,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They got up on stage and away they went. We had some friends in the audience and it was just great.â&#x20AC;? The Felhavers are a long-time musical White Lake family. Kyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father Dave is a fiddle maker, whose unique instrument the younger Felhaver uses at many of his shows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a unique design, he sort of reinvented the head of the fiddle,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want people to see them and appreciate them.â&#x20AC;? Felhaverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been fiddling for about 25 years and is constantly busy with his musical career, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gigs or teaching his schedule is full. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m working around the scene with three or four local bands including our family band,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing a lot of teaching. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just




heavy into the lesson time of year.â&#x20AC;? A new endeavour for Felhaver is Ridinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Shotgun, a band out of Richmond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We play all new country so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new experience for me,â&#x20AC;? he said. A

recent show at Rideau Slots went over very well. And, of course, the usual weddings, dances and Christmas parties will have the Felhaver family busy for the foreseeable future, he said.

Ann Felhaver joins Ashley MacIsaac for a photo op at the Neat Cafe in Burnstown.

Hay from the West a welcome relief for farmers CHRIS MUST

EMC news – How dry were some parts of Ontario this summer? According to Ontario Federation of Agriculture President Mark Wales: “A grasshopper would have to pack a lunch to cross the township.” Wales toured Lanark and Renfrew Counties in August. “I saw a lot of dead cornfields, I saw a lot of dead pasture, and I didn’t see a lot of hay. By that stage it hadn’t rained for several months.” For local farmers strug-

gling to feed their livestock in the aftermath of the prolonged drought, help is on the way. At Lanark Hay East, a fundraising event hosted by the Almonte Civitan Club on Nov. 3, Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi announced that joint federal and provincial aid to bring donated hay from farms in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba has been approved. The federal and provincial governments will jointly contribute up to $500,000 toward the cost of transporting hay from the west, said Naqvi. They have also committed to

matching donations from the public to the Hay East program to a maximum of $2.5 million. “This will move a lot of hay,” said Wales. Funds raised from the Lanark Hay East fundraiser Nov. 3 came in over $15,000, with more funds expected to spill in. Some hay has already reached Lanark County. Fourteen bales, each weighing 1,550 pounds, arrived at the Almonte area farm of Warren Leitch and Lori McRae on Oct. 31. The hay was donated by a farmer in Leeder, SK.

McRae made a point of calling the Saskatchewan farmer who donated his hay to help the struggling Lanark County producers. “He was actually surprised that we took the time to phone him,” she recalled. “I thought I was going to start crying, so I took a deep breath.” Another farm in the Maberly area has received 15 bales of donated hay. For these farms, and many others in Lanark, Renfrew and the Pontiac region of Quebec, this hay is critical to their continued survival. Without this assistance, most of these farms will run out of feed for their livestock by January or February. Several months without rainfall has deprived the producers of the locally-grown hay they normally count on to feed their cattle, sheep, goats and horses. Hay that would have been saved for the winter had to be fed to animals during the summer. Area farmers with long memories have stated that there hasn’t been a summer this dry since 1962, said Dave Campbell, key organizer of the Lanark Hay East fundraiser. At that time, said Campbell, hay was also brought from the west to save the day. Eastern farmers returned the favour by donating hay to be shipped west in 2002 when a drought struck the Prairies. Liz Roffey, who has a farm halfway between Arnprior and Renfrew, said she and her husband had to hire an excavating crew to try to bring water to the surface this year. “You can have all the grass you want,

but if you don’t have water ...,” she said. “They (livestock) are like you or I, they’re not camels.” OFA president Wales said this year’s drought has also served as “a wake-up call.” If this kind of extreme weather becomes the norm, he said, farmers will need to think about creating more on-farm water storage for both livestock and crops. Water storage, he added, will “keep the water table up, and is good for wildlife as well.” Wales said farms in the region require a combined total of 70,000 bales of hay to meet their needs. Thanks to the generosity of western farmers, he said, “the hay is there, moving it is the challenge now.” Wales said both the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways have been allocating rail cars for the project, and trucking services in the west have also offered their services. Hay brought to Lanark County will be unloaded in Smiths Falls for distribution to area farms. Campbell said the idea for the Lanark Hay East fundraiser, which was a standingroom only event expected to raise several thousand dollars, came about in August. A 14member volunteer committee met once a month to plan the event, and worked hard to ensure the hall, refreshments and entertainment were all donated. “Every cent we raise is going to buy transportation for hay,” he said. “This is the community coming together,” said Wales.

“It should get us through the winter,” said Leitch. “It’s beautiful hay,” added McRae. “The cattle were around it like a magnet.” Before the donated hay arrived, the family was afraid they might have to sell part of their herd of beef cattle. They had acquired a supply of hay earlier in the year, but were forced to feed it to their animals at the beginning of June. The second cut of locallygrown hay they had been counting on failed to materialize. An 18-acre field yielded only 35 tiny bales.

Friday November 23, and Saturday November 24th 34 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, November 22, 2012

EMC news – Renfrew County National Farmers Union president Dave Mackay has expressed fears the latest take-over by a Brazilian company of the troubled XL Food Lakeside beef processing plant could eventually greatly affect the 300 cattle producers in Renfrew County. The XL Food Lakeside beef processing plant near Brooks, Alberta was recently shut down because of e-coli contamination. Cattle farmers in Renfrew County have already gone through the Mad Cow disease, the fall-out from the 2012 drought and now concerns over the XL Food takeover, said Mackay. “Sadly Renfrew County has lost 30-40 per cent of livestock producers in recent years. This is a real concern for our county.” Mackay pointed out the take-over company, JBS, the world’s largest meat packing corporation, is owned in part (30 per cent) by the Brazilian government. The company operates in the U.S., Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, China, Russia, Australia, Italy and Mexico. Also included in the potential deal is XL’s Calgary meat packing plant, 70,000-head feedlot, 4,000 acres of Alberta farmland and two American beef slaughterhouses. “The pending acquisition by JBS has serious implications for Canadian cattle farmers, as well as the Canadian food system,” said Mackay. “If the sale proceeds, two foreign companies, JBS and Cargill, would control well over 80 per cent of Canada’s beef processing.” As a result, the NFU is calling upon the Canadian government to review this takeover to protect the interests of small and medium-sized Canadian businesses in the beef sector and protect Canada’s sovereignty over our food system, he said. “The fear of collapsing prices for cattle, and of the 2,000 jobs that could be lost and the impact that would have on Brooks, pale in comparison to what it would mean for Canada to lose control of her cattle slaughter capacity.” “What we need is a major overhaul of federal meat policy to restrain packer power by reversing concentration and decoupling vertically integrated packers. We need to tailor food safety regulations to encourage local abattoirs that could serve markets in every region. And finally, we need to build collective cattle marketing agencies that will ensure an efficient, fair and transparent market for both buyers and sellers.”

Fashionable frenzy Grace St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church held its annual fall fashion show on Thursday, Nov. 1 to a room full of ladies who got more than a few fashionable tips and tricks. At left, one of the popular accessories is shown during the earlier part of the fashion show, while above, one of the models drifts through the crowd to admiring glances. The fashion show was a fundraiser for Arnprior Regional Health.



COLD AND FLU SEASON: HEREâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S TO YOUR HEALTH! With the arrival of fall comes the reminder about how you can prevent catching and/or spreading communicable diseases such as the ďŹ&#x201A;u. The best ways to protect yourself and prevent the spread of illness is by keeping your immunization status up-to-date, frequent hand washing, covering your cough/sneeze with your sleeve, and by staying home if you are sick. Arnprior Regional Health will also continue with our current infection control measures based upon up-to-date best practices. These practices include having all patients, staff and visitors self-screen upon entering the building. Self-screening means wearing a mask and using hand sanitizer if a cough, temperature, or ďŹ&#x201A;u like symptom is present. A staff member will then screen the patient with a series of questions and assessments including a temperature reading. People with ďŹ&#x201A;u-like symptoms will be placed away from the general population for a complete assessment by a health care practitioner.

Friday, December 7 at 6 pm

During these assessments the healthcare practitioner will also wear a mask. Testing, or a throat swab, will only be done if the patient is experiencing signiďŹ cant symptoms and requires hospitalization. If experiencing mild symptoms, patients will most likely not be tested but will receive self-care instructions to take home. For more information visit the Renfrew County Public Health website, orďŹ&#x201A;uwatch/index-eng.php. If you have a non-urgent appointment and you are ill please call ahead to discuss alternatives with your healthcare provider. As is the case at any time, visitors are asked to refrain from visiting patients at the hospital and residents at the Grove when they are ill. Please help us to protect those we are taking care of. Stay ďŹ t and active, get plenty of rest, eat well, and remember to cover your cough/sneeze, get your vaccines and always wash your hands!

Arnprior Regional Health is developing a new strategic plan to set the course of local health services for the next 5 years.

of the highest peace time military awards. The Constance Bay resident and mother of two grown children was the CarletonMississippi Mills federal Liberal candidate in 2011. She spoke to delegates about leadership lessons from a woman’s perspective. “We are all past, present and future leaders within our groups,” said McCrimmon. Her presentation included a power-point component that began with a photo of Hercules aircraft in flight. “There are my girls, aren’t they pretty?” she said as the photo flashed on the screen. Her career included missions in Afghanistan and other foreign countries but there was much work to be done even here at home in times of floods, ice storms and other situations. Afghanistan itself left an impression on McCrimmon. “I really have a high opinion of the Afghan people,” she said. “They want something better.” While there, McCrimmon was responsible for all regional airports on the eastern side of the country, a role that involved negotiating with Af-

ghans. She counts among her accomplishments much more than just her military career. “I’ve learned as much from being a wife and a mother as I have in my military career,” she said. In both leadership roles, several principles have remained at the fore. “Lead by example,” she said. Do as I say not as I do just does not wash. “In the military it’s known as the saydo gap.” Listening skills are paramount to success when it comes to just about anything, said McCrimmon. “People are happy when they are connected to something bigger than themselves as an individual,” she said. “Women have to understand their power and they have to take that power and use it,” she said. In closing, she shared her mother’s words. “It’s not happiness that makes you grateful, it’s gratefulness that makes you happy Ladies enjoyed many aspects of the day, including an activity break led by Lisa Kyte of the West Carleton Family Health Team.

A little sport, lots of crime in debut novel Steve Newman

It’s 1999 and Luke Murphy of Shawville finishes off a pretty two-on-one play, putting the puck upstairs behind goalie Mathieu Chouinard. It’s the winning goal in a Florida Panthers’ 3-2 exhibitiongame victory over the Ottawa Senators. The Ottawa Valley boy is flying, but his fortune runs out when he breaks his hand later in the Panthers’ training camp. “I was having a good camp. I was playing pretty well,” said Murphy, one of the smallest players on the ice, at 165 pounds. He doesn’t make the team,

but when offered a minor league contract, he takes it and ends up playing pro hockey in the minors for six seasons. Murphy loves telling the story, but the 36-year-old is hoping a longer story of his, all 230 pages of it, also creates positive dividends. Now working for school boards in Renfrew County and western Quebec, as an occasional teacher, he’s also enjoying a literary triumph — the publication of his debut novel, Dead Man’s Hand, by Imajin Books. The e-book version was released, with Amazon, in midOctober. The print version followed, also last month. It is now available at the

Arnprior Book Shop. With deep roots in sports, Murphy admits he wanted his main character to be involved in sports. So former football star Calvin Watters, of the University of Southern California, becomes one of two main characters in a story that is steeped in the seedier side of Las Vegas, and a city Murphy has visited for research purposes. Following rave reviews from such best-selling authors as Thomas Perry of Poison Flower, Anne Frasier of Hush and Anthony Bidulka of Dos Equis, Murphy is hopeful that the book will resonate with readers. Dead Man’s Hand isn’t exactly an aberration for Mur-

County of Renfrew

phy, either. Growing up in a family that enjoyed reading, he was no exception. He particularly enjoyed crimes and mysteries, including those that were parlayed into movies. “I always loved reading,” he says. “I loved reading books on road trips or in the cafeteria (during my hockey career). All my family loved reading.” It was an injury, it turns out, that created a literary opening for Murphy, who already enjoyed such crime authors as Greg Iles, Michael Connelly and Harlen Coben. Suffering a season-ending injury to his left eye meant he only managed to play five games with the Oklahoma City Blazers of

Author Luke Murphy of Shawville.

Wells Continue to Go Dry Across the County Well drillers recommend taking action now, before freezing temperatures arrive and difficulties and costs increase.

Drought Condition Changes - as of November 8, 2012: Level 1 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.

“You don’t have to describe every movement of every character,” he explains. “Make sure you show; don’t tell.” That’s what he does in Dead Man’s Hand, which begins with main character Calvin Watters crossing the street of a quiet neighbourhood. He heads past cobwebs into the basement, and begins a conversation with James Pierce, the man he has tied to a chair in the middle of the room because he hasn’t paid his debts. After Pierce promises to pay, Murphy writes this about Watters and his captive: He leaned over the table. For effect, he took his time as he opened the leather case and removed the tools of his trade. “One day, one joint.” This was when most of them broke down all the way. And Pierce didn’t disappoint him. A scream boiled from the man’s belly and erupted like a relentless siren. Calvin ignored Pierce as best he could. There were 206 bones in the human skeleton. A pro had trained him to use them all. “Hammer or pipe cutter?” “God, no!” In May 2012, Murphy signed a publishing contract for Dead Man’s Hand with Imajin Books (Alberta). Murphy’s second book, which he’s working on, is a crime thriller. The book features a rookie female detective who is pulled between two murder cases, one of a university professor, one of her own father, who also worked for the Los Angeles Police Department.

the Central Hockey League, but he used that winter of 2000 wisely. He sat down at the computer and began writing. Writing a little every day, while continuing an intensive rehab program for his eye, he soon completed his first manuscript, one that is still unpublished. Before long, he was back playing hockey, but Murphy continued his interest in writing, researching, reading up on the industry, making friends with published and unpublished authors, and learning more about how to write well. Eventually, after his playing career was over, he returned to university, to earn his teaching degree at the University of Ottawa in 2009. But he also returned to writing more vigorously. In the winter of 2007 he began two years of writing what became Dead Man’s Hand. He also hired Jennifer Lyons of the Jennifer Lyons Literacy Agency, but only after taking his rough manuscript to New York editor Paul McCarthy. “He really liked it, but he said it needed work, and we worked on it off and on for six months,” says Murphy. “Finally, we had it polished.” Along the way, Murphy says he’s learned two huge lessons about his own writing. “A lot was trusting my readers more. (Before) I told too much.” Secondly, he says the author needs to let the reader imagine.

Bartering a key survival tool in Depression era EMC lifestyle - There seemed to me that not much money changed hands back in those Depression years. Of course, there wasn’t much money around. Mother pretty well ran the house on what was in the sugar bowl holding her egg money, which came from selling eggs, cream, butter, chickens and sticky buns door-to-door in Renfrew on Saturdays. And, of course, in the summer times, a few more pennies were realized when she could add some fresh vegetables from our ample garden to her wares. Father always had a few coins in his pocket, but they were few and far between indeed. It seemed to me back then that most of the commerce of the day was done by bartering. Mr. Briscoe at Briscoe’s General Store wasn’t interested in trading what he sold for chickens, vegetables, cream or butter. After all, the entire Northcote farm area had an amply supply of those things themselves. But he always welcomed Mother’s sticky buns. These she traded for sugar and green tea. For the rare times old Doctor Murphy had to drive out all the way from Renfrew, and there were very few coins in the egg money bowl, he would be paid for his visit with a freshly plucked chicken, a sealer jar or fresh cream, and, of course, eggs. There was always an ample supply of eggs, and Dr. Murphy, it seemed to me, never expected to get hard cold cash for his trip out from Renfrew. The stores in town were a different matter. Those owned locally were

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

used to bartering with the farming community. But you could never make a deal with Walker’s Store, which was owned by some big firm in Toronto. It had to be cold hard cash. But it wasn’t unusual to see Mother making a deal at Scott’s Hardware or Aikenhead Store. A fresh chicken for chicken wire, or freshly churned butter for cough medicine. There really was a Mr. Scott and a Mr. Aikenhead, and they seemed to know ready cash was scarce. I doubt Mother was ever turned away because she hadn’t the money to pay for what she needed. It seemed to me Father was continually bartering with other farmers in Northcote. It wasn’t at all unusual to see him walking a young heifer out the lane with a rope around its neck and coming back with a colt. Or he would load a sheep in the back of the old Model T, and come back with a couple of newborn piglets. It was how the farm community survived the terrible Depression that had closed in around them. Although we depended heavily on the hand me down boxes that came regularly from Regina, from Aunt Lizzie, it wasn’t at all unusual for the clothes to be traded amongst the neighbours. I once got a lovely coat

from my little friend Joyce who had outgrown it. I doubt we had anything to give her in return … they were so much better off than we were. After all, Joyce lived in a brick house and had a toilet! As regular as clock work, we had visits from Rawleigh and Watkins door-to-door salesmen. They travelled by horse and buggy, and we could always tell when they were coming in our long lane, because they both had big brass bells around their horse’s necks, which gave plenty warning they were on their way. They were both great salesmen, and it was hard to resist their wares. It wasn’t unusual for Mother, when she had bought over her limit to start bartering with them. They bantered back and forth, and when the salesmen realized there wasn’t enough money to pay for what Mother had chosen, they could either take the couple pounds of butter and a few eggs, or pack up and leave. They usually accepted the barter. It seemed to me back then, that bartering was simply a way of life. There was no embarrassment to trading one thing for another. It was just another tool that helped people of the thirties survive.

Memories banked War veterans and their families gathered at the TD bank in the Arnprior Shopping Centre during Remembrance week to share memories and memorabilia from yesteryear. Ray Gartner, the new branch manager, said the stories are extraordinary. An employee had no Second World War photos of her grandfather until a client brought one in for the annual event, which took place on Nov. 9 this year. In another instance, two navy veterans with accounts at the branch, only recently learned they served on the same ship.

Princess Patricia’s to celebrate century of service EMC lifestyle - In 2014 all Canadians will begin a long remembrance of the first industrialized war in the history of man, one that cost many nations, including Canada, a massive human toll. The First World War, the Great War (16 million war dead), started the modern era, with repercussions that affect us to this day. Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) was founded on Aug. 10, 1914 with the government’s accep-

tance of the philanthropic offer of Captain Andrew Hamilton Gault, a Montreal entrepreneur, to provide $100,000 to raise and equip a battalion for immediate overseas service. PPCLI has served Canada continuously ever since. In 2014 PPCLI will celebrate with Canadians in Edmonton, Ottawa and in 2015 in Belgium and France. Parades, ceremonials, music, art and memorials will all be featured. The Charter of the Regi-

ment was signed by the Minister of Militia and Defence on Aug. 10, 1914. Eight days later mobilization was complete, as old soldiers flocked from every part of Canada to Lansdowne Park in Ottawa, where the Regiment was assembled. Out of 1,098 all ranks accepted into the new Regiment, 1,049 had seen previous service in South Africa or in the regular forces of the British Empire. Her Royal Highness Princess Patricia, daugh-

ter of the Governor General, graciously consented for the Regiment to carry her name. The Patricias were the first Canadian combat unit into battle in the First World War and participated in all the famous battles of that war including Ypres, Passchendaele, Vimy and the Somme. The Regiment began a history of service to the nation that continues to the present day, being involved in the major operations undertaken by Canada in the Second World

War in Sicily, Italy and Northwestern Europe, followed by Korea, then in Germany as a part of NATO, UN peacekeeping operations, the former Yugoslavia in peace support, and Afghanistan throughout the recent war. This service has cost 1,850 Patricias their lives and thousands of soldiers injured. Today’s PPCLI consists of more than 2,000 serving soldiers mainly stationed in Alberta and Manitoba. The Colonel-in-Chief PPCLI is the former Governor-General of Canada, Adrienne Clarkson, the first Canadian woman to serve in such a position. In 2014, the Regiment will celebrate its century of service to Canada with major 48 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, November 22, 2012

commemorations in Edmonton (August), Ottawa (September), and Ypres, Belgium (May 2015).

Best wishes only.

My hope is to keep the spirit of our national Remembrance Day ceremonies alive and well for the next generation so they realize how present war still is. Remembrance Day is not just about the old wars and old veterans but about the modern ones too. Everyone should be shaking a soldiers hand and thanking them. They deserve our thanks. They are an important part of our country and we have one of the best military organizations in the world. My deepest and warmest thank you to the Arnprior Legion, Rev Milton Fraser, Andre Pilon and my dear friend who assisted me at the ceremony Janet Tobio. A heartfelt thank you to my Family for their loving support and special participation throughout the day. To each of you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Lois Robillard Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Psalm 139:14 CLR394874

Leonard S. Robertson Sept. 12, 1930 – Nov. 24, 2011 In loving memory of a devoted husband, father and grandpa who passed away on November 24, 2011. Summer is gone, And now it’s Fall, Which brings back memories, Saddest of all. Each morning when we awake, Knowing you are gone, No one knows our heartache, As we carry on. Our hearts ache with sadness, And secret tears still flow, What losing you has meant to us, No one will ever know. Our thoughts are always about you, Your place no one else will ever fill. In life we loved you dearly, And we always will. Forever in our hearts Greatly missed Love Barb, Heather and Brad, Barb, Jeff and Victoria




SGT. JOHN WINTONICK RCAF WWII and beyond January 23, 1918 – November 21, 1962 The somber silence of November There we were settled at Greenwood airbase, John almost at his Argus Airframe mechanics trade by that early light of dawn his twenty crewmen nearby just waiting, one moment he was there: next moment gone – my thoughts of the Canadian flag -draped coffin with marching band and airmen in his native Winnipeg city My son nine, daughter, eight crew standing alert, onlookers – their eyes spelled pity we hadn’t time to hold his hand nor even hear the praises of John’s ‘esprit de corps’ we could only stand there unbelieving as that somber silence hit our November door.

They say there is a reason They say that time will heal But neither time nor reason Will change the way we feel For no-one knows the heartache That lies behind our smile No-one knows how many times We have broken down and cried We want to tell you something So there won’t be any doubt You’re so wonderful to think of But so hard to be without

A most blessed man and loving husband Norma (Wintonick) Dixon Peter Wintonick and Suzanne Olsheskie

Korea 1950 - 53 Remembrance Day He was getting old and paunchy And his hair was falling fast, And he sat around the Legion, Telling stories of the past. Of a war that he once fought in And the deeds that he had done, In his exploits with his buddies; They were heroes, every one. And tho’ sometimes to his neighbours His tales became a joke, All his buddies listened quietly For they knew whereof he spoke. But we’ll hear his tales no longer, For old Moe has passed away, And the world’s a little poorer For a Soldier died today. He won’t be mourned by many, Just his children and his wife. For he lived an ordinary, Very quiet sort of life. He held a job and raised a family, Going quietly on his way; And the world won’t note his passing, Tho’ a Soldier died today. When politicians leave this earth, Their bodies lie in state. While thousands note their passing, And proclaim that they were great. Papers tell of their life stories From the time that they were young. But the passing of a Soldier Goes unnoticed, and unsung. Is the greatest contribution To the welfare of our land, Someone who breaks his promise And cons his fellow man? Or the ordinary fellow Who in times of war and strife, Goes off to serve his country And offers up his life? The politician’s stipend And the style in which he lives, Are often disproportionate, To the service that he gives. While the ordinary Soldier, Who offered up his all, Is paid off with a medal And perhaps a pension - though small. It is not the politicians With their compromise and ploys, Who won for us the freedom That our country now enjoys. Should you find yourself in danger, With your enemies at hand, Would you really want some cop-out, With his ever waffling stand? Or would you want a Soldier His home, his country, his kin, Just a common Soldier, Who would fight until the end? He was just a common Soldier, And his ranks are growing thin, But his presence should remind us We may need his like again. For when countries are in conflict, We find the Soldier’s part, Is to clean up all the troubles That the politicians start. If we cannot do him honour While he’s here to hear the praise, Then at least let’s give him homage At the ending of his days. Perhaps just a simple headline In the paper that might say: “OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING, A SOLDIER DIED TODAY.” Love you Forever, Your Family

God Bless Mothers Lord, Thou hast known A mother’s Love and tender care: And Thou wilt hear, while for my own Mother most dear, I make this prayer. Protect her life I pray, Who gave the gift of life to me; And may she know, from day to day, The deepening glow of Life that comes from Thee.

50 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, November 22, 2012

To our family, what would we have done without you? The Keon, Kelly and Whalen clans support was evident and appreciated from the beginning. He was grateful for your visits, calls and prayers. We of course were able to breathe easier knowing you were there for us. Whether it was a laugh, a cry or something in between, your love and support was all that we needed. To our friends and neighbours, where do we begin? Thank you for your thoughts, prayers and of course tea. The time you took to send a card or drop off food was so important. If you just sat and listen know it became a safe place for us to share without being judged. The many kind acts did not go unnoticed. We are so blessed to have so many good people in our lives. Friends are the family we choose. To Breigh and Rory’s hockey teams during the 2011-2012 season— Teams may change with each passing year—but during a season you always embrace the true spirit of teammates. To the Renfrew Minor Midget Timberwolves, coming to the wake as a team and then paying tribute to Grandpa “KEON” on your sticks was very moving. To the Madawaska Midget Girls, your kindness, support and generosity was also greatly appreciated. Sometimes routines are the most important thing to get you through; hockey certainly was a happy get away. The impact both teams had on our family was overwhelming. To Shelby’s friends and Ottawa U gang—we were so grateful she had love and support when she was away from home. To the Wal-Mart/McDonald’s Coffee Club, your support was so important to mom and dad, the journey as it continues has been blessed with your constant companionship. We know that “the sky isn’t falling” anymore – but cast a glance upward just in case. To the “Wednesday Night V-ball Girlies”—forever keeping Cecie sane! You are the reason for the first annual “Bill Keon Memorial Bursary” at St. Joseph High School. To Carrie, Christy, Donna, Laurie and Stacy, thank you for preparing and serving the food between services. Somehow my house managed to look better than it had in a while. To the management, staff and local 4820 of Haley Industries Ltd., The Town of Renfrew, The Renfrew Fire Department and The Renfrew Firefighters Association, we spend more waking hours with our co-workers and truly appreciated your support.

Father Holly - Thank you for performing the last sacrament for him, as difficult as it was for us all, we know how much it meant to him. To the Goulet Family Funeral Home; Knights of Columbus; St. Francis Xavier Parish: Father Proulx; Pallbearers: Denzil, Pat, Doug, Brennan, Remo and Jim; Honour Guards; Readers: Debbie and Dave; Musician: Julie Larocque; Altar servers; Police escort: Terry McIntyre; CWL; family and friends. Each and every one of you contributed to his final journey being filled with the pomp and circumstance he deserved. CLR393738

I cannot pay my debt For all the love that she has given; But Thou, Love’s Lord, wilt not forget Her due reward,- bless her in Earth and Heaven. Forever loved and missed, Mearl, Tammy, Mark, Melinda, Joselyn and Dusty

Words cannot express the gratitude we have to all who helped in dad’s journey. Food, drinks, flowers, donations, thoughts, prayers, masses, e-mails, calls and visits made each step of the way easier.

Dr. Ali he was so thankful to finally have a family physician. Thank you for your careful guidance during his diagnosis and treatment.

Hold her by the hand As once her hand held mine; And though she may not understand Life’s winding way, lead her in Peace divine.

Tempus Fugit—a year has passed since you went home, our hearts are still sad, but your legacy is exemplified in our daily life, our learning and most importantly our love—Carpe Diem.

To the Renfrew Victoria Hospital, we are so fortunate to have a wonderful facility filled with a kind, devoted and caring staff. From the moment you enter the doors you know you are in good hands. The management, administrators, those who care for you, those who provide food to you, those who ensure the facility and bedding are clean and those who make sure everything is in good working condition; are all key factors in making RVH what it is. We are forever grateful to the oncology staff, your professionalism and caring, made it less scary. Your ability to accommodate was a tremendous help – Thank you. The staff of the second floor went out of their way to make sure we were all taken care of, it meant so much and words cannot convey our gratitude. Dr. Duggan your compassion and sincerity were very much appreciated; we were so blessed to have you oversee his care. Shelley Eisen, we hope you understand how thankful we are that you opened the window.

May 14, 1981 – November 23, 2011

We know that our Son, Brother, Uncle and friend has passed away But we will love him to our dying day So please listen to our memories even now and then Family and friends please allow us to talk about him With his life we had everything to gain We gained from him even in death He brought us to God and there is no greater wealth Yes, for our son there could be no other We thank God for choosing us to be his Mother, Father, Brother, Family and Friend

October 25, 1940 – November 25, 2011

To the current and former staff and students of St. Joesph’s High School, he touched many lives and it was evident in so many ways. Thank you for the calls, e-mails, notes, cards, visits, thoughts and prayers, both during and at the end of his journey. He was a teacher right to the end. He believed with all of his heart that “Scientia Cum Amicitia” was the most important thing. His “lessons by life” were honoured with the raising and subsequently lowering of “The Red Ensign” a tribute we’re sure he watched with pride and that touched our hearts deeply.

Muriel Richard

One year has passed since that sad day Little did we know that morning God was going to call your name In life we loved you dearly In death we do the same It broke our hearts to lose you But you did not go alone For a part of us went with you The day God called you home You left us peaceful memories Your love is still our guide And though we cannot see you You are always by our side Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same But as God calls us one by one The chain will link again

IN MEMORIAM MUNRO, Margeurieta In loving memory of our dear mother, Margeurieta who passed away November 11, 1989. A lot of beautiful memories, Sprayed with many tears, Wishing God had spared you, For just a few more years. Thanks for all the happiness you gave us; No one will ever know, May you always walk in sunshine, And Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love around you flow. There will always be a heartache, And often a silent tear; But always the precious memories, Of the days when you were here. Lovingly remembered, The Munro Family

Brian, Virgina, and Richard STANTON, Patrick James November 22, 2008 What would I give to clasp his hand, His happy face to see, To hear his voice and see his smile, That meant so much to me. Loving you always, Louise

Dog racing returning to Bristol A guide to buying perfect pet gift

Peter Clark

The third annual Bristol Dryland Canadian Championship dog races runs this Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 24 and 25 in Timberland on Ragged Chute Road, Bristol, Que. The event is gaining popularity world-wide, chief organizer Denis Rozon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Americans tell us, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You let us know when your event is. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll work our schedule around it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had 104 teams last year, including 80 per cent from the States, three (teams) from Europe and three world champions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had 1,000 spectators per day two years ago,â&#x20AC;? Rozon added of the inaugural Bristol dog races which drew 76 teams in 2010. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attendance was a bit less, but the races were scheduled during hunting season. But that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen again, Rozon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve applied for the 2015 world championship. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get it,â&#x20AC;? Rozon added confidently. At least two of the competitors at next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bristol event are from this area. Both Lynn Cheffins of Douglas and Kiara Brintnell of the Denbigh area are back to compete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really nice to have an event this close to home,â&#x20AC;? Cheffins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dryland is a newer sport and its popularity is growing.â&#x20AC;?


Canadian championship dog racing returns to Bristol, Que. this weekend (Nov. 24 and 25). are a few dog and driver competitions within a couple hours of home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been at Marmora and Bancroft,â&#x20AC;? she said. Cheffins has been dog sledding for more than 20 years, but mainly for recreation until six or seven years ago.

coats and sweaters. There are feeders, bowls, cages, crates, dog houses and kennels. You can also give them the gift of jeweller with bling collars and leashes. Cats will love toys that are stuffed with cat nip. There are all kinds of scratching posts and cat furniture for them to climb on, sleep on, scratch and enjoy and battery-powered mice to drive them crazy and feather teasers to keep them busy. Small birds to large parrots would enjoy cage accessories like food and water dishes, perches, ladders and toys that come in all shapes and sizes and in a variety of materials such as wood, plastic, metal, cord, denim and leather. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure what to get your pet or a pet lover on your gift list, then try a gift certificate for a day at the spa (for the pet not the owner) or a gift certificate from a local pet store. Just remember to have fun! Shopping for a pet or pet lover should be just as much fun as for the human gifts youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be buying. I bet you never got a wet kiss from a human as thanks for purchasing that special gift and, best of all, I have never seen a pet in the return line at the local pet store after the holidays. Merry month before Christmas and a happy gift shopping to all. Ian owns and operates Wags & Whiskers Dog and Cat Grooming at 118 John St. N., Arnprior.

EMC lifestyle - Twas the month before Christmas and all through the place Mommy and Daddy had egg on their face While all of their neighbours shopped back in September Mommy and Daddy just now remembered So get off your butts and head to the shops To buy gifts for all of your dogs, cats, kittens and pups. We all wait until the last minute and then run out and try and buy that perfect gift for that special someone. There are some great pet gifts out there and some come with price tags to rival the electronic gifts your kids will want for the holidays. Let me help you with a few suggestions. Buy a toy that will not only last but also stimulate. There are balls and other contraptions that you can stuff with treats such as cookies, peanut butter or cheese. Watch your dog go crazy trying to get those luscious treats out from within those toys. Rawhide, pigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ears and hooves are fun. However, they smell when they get moist from chewing and too many can give a pet an upset stomach. Be careful not to give them a toy with a bell that can break off and be swallowed. Toys stuffed with a squeaker in them are OK. Just make sure they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remove the squeaker and swallow it. Always inspect the toy and make sure the squeaker is intact. There are a host of simulated bones made from nylon called Nylabones that are flavoured in beef or chicken and come in all shapes and sizes. They even sell bones that act like dental floss. These bones clean the teeth and stimulate the gums as they chew. Maybe they should make a product like that for us! There are beds, blankets and pillows made of faux fur in all shapes and sizes to keep your pet comfy on those long cold winter nights, as well as boots,

Wizard of Oz production coming to the Ottawa Valley EMC events - Arnprior will be getting a little green – and yellow – this spring when Two Rivers Musical Productions brings The Wizard of Oz to town. Who needs Toronto? You can stay right here in your own backyard to see Dorothy, Toto, the Wicked Witch and all the rest in this magical musical based on the 1939 classic film, set to hit the stage June 6-8. Building on last year’s outstanding production of Fiddler on the Roof, this third outing from Two Rivers will be directed by Dunrobin’s Ron Gardner. “We’re thrilled to bring another major musical production to our local audience,” says Gardner, whose community theatre experience includes leading stage and director roles with Two Rivers, Kanata Theatre and Rural Root Theatre Company. “With the wealth of talent that we’ve seen from Fiddler and Annie, we have very high expectations of finding those special performers who can bring this timeless story to life.” With such a large production, there’s a huge need for talent both onstage and off – with roles for everything from set design and construction to costumes and musical accompaniment. Lisa Webber, back for a third year as musical director,

cently ran a two-day workshop to help people develop skills for auditioning and performing on the stage. “Our Dorothy will obviously need to have that exceptional, soaring voice, but there are also a lot of comedic roles that require a little bit of singing and a lot of character.” Adds Gardner: “With such a large, all-ages cast, The Wizard of Oz gives us the chance to work with seasoned performers and develop a passion for musical theatre in the next generation.” The Wizard of Oz auditions will be held Jan. 13 and 23, with callbacks on Feb. 4. The audition application form and open production positions are posted now. So click your heels together (or your mouse) and learn more by visiting
