NEW YEAR’S

News – An attempt by one McNab-Braeside councillor to help improve the situation for residents who use recreation services outside of the township fell short Dec. 17 on a 3-2 vote. Coun. Aldene Styles had previously suggested the municipality provide a rebate of $150 to township youth and seniors using town programs. McNab-Braeside residents are facing increased out-of-town fees for library and recreation services following council’s decision earlier this year to end shared agreements with Arnprior and Renfrew. “What I was trying to do was come up with something that might pass council and still help out the residents,” she said. Council has already agreed to reimburse library users $45/ household for their library memberships when a receipt is presented to the township office. A staff report on the financial impact of that decision indicates the maximum annual expense the township could face is $141,210 – assuming every one of the township’s 3,138 households claims the reimbursement, an unlikely scenario. See LIST OF PETITION NAMES Page 4

SHERRY HAAIMA/METROLAND

News – A consultant’s report suggesting town council more than double the price of development charges has shocked at least one builder unaware the issue is under discussion. Tony Campanale didn’t attend the Dec. 9 council meeting where economists Watson and Associates recommended raising charges paid on each new house from about $6,000 to $12,500. The money is used to build sidewalks, streetlights and other infrastructure that benefits new neighbour-

hoods. It can’t go into general coffers. When he found out council has taken the doubling of development charges under consideration, Campanale wondered aloud what the town is doing with the $1.2 million his company has paid for building some 200 homes over the last few years. “Wow. That’s crazy. Why are they looking to raise it in the first place? What are they doing with the money they already collected?” Campanale asked. “I’m kind of surprised no one consulted with us. Every time development charges go up it raises the price of houses. It makes Arnprior less attractive.” See MAYOR Page 3

Doctor on the way

News - The work of Arnprior’s physician recruitment team has paid off. Dr. Mohammad Nejad, who completed several weeks of locum residency in Arnprior in November, has accepted an offer to join the Arnprior and District Family Health Organization. Dr. Nejad lives in Goose Bay Labrador and will be relocating to the area with his family to practice family medicine in Arnprior. Start date details and how he will fill his patient list are still being worked out, says physician recruitment co-ordinator Lindsay Ziebarth. Individuals who are in need of a family physician are directed to register with Health Care Connect.

Town’s Christmas decorations lacking this year, says resident News – Where’s Arnprior’s Christmas spirit? A town resident is speaking out on what he considers a shameful lack of Christmas decorations in town this year. “This town is the meanest Grinch place you could imagine,� says Ole Fabricius. “There are hardly any decorations at all. I’m embarrassed for this town.� He said he realizes the downtown Busi-

ness Improvement Association, which usually looks after Christmas decorating, is in limbo at the moment. However, if the town has money for a new logo and caps and jackets, it can step into the vacuum and spend some money on strings of lights or post decorations downtown or on the bridge, he said. “Surely to goodness the town has some money for this.� Fabricius, who said he’s been in town for 30 years, said he appreciates the lights on the tree at the library, but Arnprior’s limited

When asked about it, town staff told him “they’re workdecorations this year pale in comparison to the spirit shown by nearby towns such as ing on it,� he said, adding that if Arnprior is serious about attracting new development and residents, it should put Pakenham, Renfrew and Almonte. Every town from here to Toronto is some importance on Christmas decorating. brightly decorated, he maintained, pointing out that Highway 7 towns such as Havelock and Norwood are beautiful this time of year. People and organizations in town get into the Christmas spirit by collecting donations for the food bank and Salvation Army, so Open Tuesday-Saturday by appointment there is no reason the town can’t get festive too, he added.

Mayor defends need for new development to pay its share

government. With the federal Conservatives and provincial Liberals turning their sights on reducing debt loads, one of the few places for municipalities to turn to is development charges. And the province has made it clear they expect municipalities “think in long term.� He said growth over the next 18 years will cost $22 million; it will cost $12,000 per house to pay for that. But he remains coy on whether the developer will shoulder the entire burden or whether existing taxpayers will have to chip in. Reid wants a develop charge system in place that is flexible enough to charge builders more during good times and taxpayers more during tough times. “I think we need to phase it in, first of all,� he said. “If growth gets stifled we’d like to go back and reexamine it. We want the ability to adapt and be flexible.� Council could decide on exact numbers at its next meeting, Jan. 13.

Mayor David Reid said it’s not a good idea for the town to have side conversations with stakeholders on any given issue. It could be perceived as harbouring a bias and some parties could be inadvertently left out. He said that since 2005 the town has had the power to demand as much as $11,000 in development charges for each new home. But in the name of attracting developers to town it has opted charge about half that amount. Neighbourhoods are popping up around town now with some regularity. The population is expected to grow from about 8,100 now to 10,000 in 10 years, and 13,000 in 18 years, according to the consultant’s report. Reid added that if council agrees with the recommendations, builders will see the increases phased in over five years, with 2014 seeing a 60 per cent increase over the current costs. The mayor is conscious that lower development charges leads to lower house prices and that, in the end, people base their relocation to a community in part on housing costs. But he also wants to protect the interests of existing taxpayers and make sure the town gets its fair share. “It’s not an easy one. Growth is supposed to pay for growth,� Reid said, adding that $30 million has been spent on water and waste water treatment plants that benefit new and existing residents. Toss in the library expansion, new dressing rooms at the rink, and the ongoing stormwater separation work and a lot of development charges have

been invested directly into upgrades. As it stands, according to the consultant’s report the money coming in is not enough to keep up with new houses being built. Across the province it only brings in about 75 per cent of the cost of growth. The provincial government doesn’t clearly state what the right level of investment from builders should be, according to the report, but municipalities can expect to generate more income from this area as funding from Queen’s Park and Ottawa dries up. “The concept of growth paying for growth is not presently achieved under the current Act,â€? reads the report. “Any further limitations or reductions provided by a change to the Act would shift a higher burden onto existing taxpayers.â€? Reid said much of the money used to pay for recent infrastructure upgrades came through the economic stimulus package from the federal 7,&2

Letter misinterpreted financial statements News – McNab-Braeside council has suggested that some of the figures used in a letter to the editor re: recreation funding in the Dec. 5 Arnprior-Chronicle Guide are misleading At its Dec. 17 meeting, council briefly discussed how to respond after receiving clarification from staff explaining that annual surpluses mentioned in the letter are offset by capital expenditures. It was decided the township treasurer should create a “note to reader” to avoid future “misinterpretations” of the audited financial statements and publish on the municipality’s website. “It’s really hard if you’re used to accounting practices in the private sector,” said Mayor

Mary Campbell. “I had an awful time my first year. There are all sorts of rules as to how money is spent in the public sector.” Campbell said it is quite true that council budgets with the intention of money going to capital reserves, but the funds only sit on the capital line for a few seconds. Treasurer Angela Lochtie addressed council. “The person in question only looked at operating surplus,” she said. “But we also invest in capital - that also would need to be taken into account. We actually did spend quite a bit on capital in the next few years.” The staff report emphasized that taxation revenues collected by McNab-Braeside cover not

only operating expenditures presented in the township’s Consolidated Statement of Operations, but also capital expenditures. It was pointed out that capital expenditures are long-term assets that serve township residents over multiple years and include such items as major road works, vehicles, equipment and buildings. In 2011 and 2012, capital expenditures included such items as road works and related planning on Scheel Drive, McLachlan Road, Creek Side Road, Liffey Creek and Duncan Drive; the acquisition of vehicles and equipment including a new landfill compactor and snow plow; and equipment and other improvements at Burnstown Beach, Braeside Beach and Red

Bright Christmas at McNab

Pine Bay. In 2012, while the township had an operating surplus of $843,074, this figure is offset by capital expenditures in the amount of $1,150,073, the report explains. This resulted in a reduction of funding set aside in reserves of $306,999. In 2011, while the township had an operating surplus of $667,020, this figure is offset by offset by capital expenditures in the amount of $570,823. This resulted in an increase of reserves of $96,197, says the report. Over the past two years, the township has collected just over $7 million in property taxes and has spent over and above this amount, reducing reserves by a net $210,802.

She then suggested the township opt to keep taking funds for recreation services from the tax base for the next two years, keeping the 2013 rate in place for 2014 and providing a two or three per cent increase in 2015. She moved to rescind council’s decision to not tax the money from the tax base, citing the more than 2,000 signatures on a petition circulated by citizens group McNab-Braeside Residents for Reading and Recreation. The petition asked council to reverse its decision, a move that could have meant an estimated $55 to $75 per year per resident on the tax bill. “We now have the list of names that came in and I must say they are very impressive,” said Styles. “When I reviewed it I saw representation from all corners of the township.” While Coun. Brad McIlquham seconded the motion, Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie, Coun. Bob Campbell and Mayor Mary Campbell voted it down. Blimkie pointed to a survey council issued to

ratepayers in the tax bills, which indicated 64 per cent of respondents did not use the services and did not wish to financially support them. “Am I the only one who’s going to sit here and be the voice for those people,” she asked. “Those people who were standing there in front of me at that very first public meeting who just about gotten eaten alive when they spoke and their opinion was not the same as the majority (in attendance).” Despite the petition and the work of MB4RR, council should stick to its guns, said Blimkie. “Those who took the time to answer the sanctioned surveys - those are the ones who pay the bills,” she said. Mayor Mary Campbell said she was surprised by some of the names on the petition. “I would never have believed, ever in my wildest dreams, the people of McNab would sign up for a seven per cent increase on library and recreation,” she said. “Now I know how much McNab-Braeside is willing to spend. And to think of the wasted years of trying to protect people from tax increases.” Mayor Campbell asked for the issue to be put on to the agenda for the next council meeting (Jan. 7). “We still have families that are hanging out there and they need some help,” she said.

Council urged again to fund Staye Court Drive improvements News - David Thompson of Frieday Street was scheduled to address council at its pre-budget consultation meeting Dec. 11 but didn’t show up. Instead, he submitted an email asking for money to be spent on upgrades in the Staye Court Drive area. Similar requests were made last year by Thompson and a group he said includes nine businesses, 51 residents

and 23 visitors in the Campbellbrook Village area. “This will be our final attempt to have the town respect the ratepayers,” Thompson wrote. “We do not intend to fight to have the town fulfill its obligations. Our frustration is now gone.” He said the town has known since August 2011 about the following:

• petition to change Staye Court Drive from rural to urban standards; • petition to bring it up to town urban standards; • letter supporting safety upgrades at the Daniel Street intersection and to the McDonald’s restaurant exit. The changes would see better lighting and easier access for pedestrians, among other improvements. R0012463160_1226

Sarah MacKenzie and Scott Catterill speak to council on behalf of the Arnprior and District Museum at the Dec. 11 pre-budget meeting. They didn’t mention money, but two other groups – the airport and the archives – can get by on the amount given by the town in 2013.

News – Recounting several large renovations and installations dominated the Arnprior and District Museum’s presentation at pre-budget deliberations at town hall on Dec. 11. Council learned of the secondfloor renovations including floor and cases replacement, removal of dry rot and asbestos, painting, and plans for new exhibits, including Arnprior ’til Now. They also heard about the window restoration project and the accessibility ramp. All three benefited from dollars provided by higher levels of government. The exhibits were considered a success, including Bats in Ontario and Champlain’s Astrolabe. The ‘QBit’ Display System, donated by the Museum of Civilization, is a new addition. Museum representatives Scott Catterill and Sarah MacKenzie did not mention the operating budget or how much they hope to get from the town. That will be presented during budget talks by curator Janet Carlile. ARCHIVES

Arnprior and District Archives is not asking for any increase to its $12,640 budget, says president John Smith. The board is working on a five-year strategic plan, the first since 2006. “We hope to have our presentation ready in the early new year,” Smith said. “Our last strategic plan was presented seven years ago and we accomplished most of the objectives.” The 30-member volunteer group had displays at 20 locations this year, far above the average of 14. The archives paid for the new furnace. The members hope get photos of buildings set to be demolished and would also like to have aerial photos of the town taken every five years. The Archives received three groups of materials this year from: • McCraery family, 1927 to 2008, texts, audio and photos; • Peter Wilson, 1900 to 1923, glass plate negatives of Arnprior including one taken from the water tower looking west over the town in 1902;

The archives, located in the library basement, is looking for additional storage space. AIRPORT

The Arnprior Airport Commission is asking the town for $56,131, the same amount as this year, said Coun. Dan Lynch. By day, Lynch is airport manager. He doesn’t vote on council decisions related to the airport. His presentation began with this year’s good news: switching to a yearly fee for ramp/landing means the airport no longer requires monitoring after hours; two mapping companies used the airport as headquarters, with one returning next summer; a fiveyear lease with Ontario Power Generation for float plane use; four hangar owners extended property lines. “At the present time we have 40 completed hangars with five hangars scheduled to be built by the end of 2014,” Lynch said. “It should be noted that the 2013 assessed value of the current hangar owners is $3,989,167.” However, not all the news was good. A lack of volunteers led to the cancellation of July’s fly-in breakfast. The new All Weather Observation System was removed because the licensing was invalid. As well, the rising cost of aviation fuel is turning people away from the hobby. And Renfrew county turned down a request for $5,000 biannually to assist in runway crack filling. Reeve Walter Stack had appealed to county officials for funding, arguing that the airport benefits not just Arnprior but several municipalities in the south end of the county. On the airport activity front, 19 Medivacs of local residents were conducted, most runway cracks were filled this summer, the level of group visits remained the same and Enbridge will likely provide natural gas to private hangars.

Phasing out of mail delivery sparks major debate News - Canada Post’s decision to end doorto-door mail delivery within five years and dramatically increase stamp prices has caused a major debate in the country. While the phasing out of delivery won’t affect rural areas, already served by community boxes, it will mean the loss of the service in cities and towns such as Arnprior. That prospect has caused concern that it will become much more difficult for seniors and other mobility-challenged people to collect their mail. However, Canada Post, faced with increasing online competition and significant pension pressures, says the changes outlined in a fivepoint action plan are necessary for it to survive. The moves are supported Crown by the federal government “According to Canada Post, a typical Canadian household buys only one to two dozen stamps per year,” said Transport Minister Lisa Raitt in a news release. “Due to the lack of demand, mail volumes

have dropped almost 25 per cent per address since 2008 and continue to fall … leading to a steep decline in revenues … I look forward to seeing progress as Canada Post rolls out its plan for an efficient, modern postal service that protects taxpayers and is equipped to meet Canadians’ needs now and in the future.” Not surprisingly, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), faced with the loss of up to 8,000 jobs, has said it is “extremely alarmed at this rash decision to gut public postal service for millions of Canadians.” In response, postal workers delivered more than 12,200 postcards of protest to Raitt’s office. The postcards were signed by Canadians opposing postal downsizing and closures. “We recognize that Canada Post needs to change, but this is not the way,” said CUPW national president Denis Lemelin. CUPW argues that innovation and service expansion is the way to create a financially viable and service oriented postal service for the future.

“We are extremely concerned that these changes will send Canada Post into a downward spiral,” said Lemelin. “Furthermore, the skyrocketing stamp prices will make the postal service inaccessible to many people.” CUPW maintains its campaign to bring back and expand postal banking has growing support from municipalities and groups across the country. Postal banks have been proven to be a solid source of income for post offices and a much needed financial resource for people in other parts of the world, says CUPW. “Where many postal operators are responding to a changing postal business with innovation, Canada Post is relying on cuts and rate increases,” said Lemelin. Also expressing concern, particularly regarding how it might affect people with disabilities and the elderly is the Canadian Human Rights Commission. “Phasing out front door delivery could have a negative impact on people who currently have access to mail services that meet their needs, but who would have difficulty making their way to street corner mailboxes, particularly in harsh weather,” says the commission in a news release. The commission is encouraging Canada Post, as it implements its five-point plan, to consult with affected groups and “make every possible effort to ensure that elderly people and people with disabilities continue to enjoy full access to mail services.” Canada Post’s action plan includes five points some of which will begin taking effect in the new year. Community mailboxes: Over the next five years, the one-third of Canadian households that receive their mail at their door will be converted to community mailbox delivery. The initial neighbourhoods slated for conversion in

the second half of 2014 will be announced once plans are finalized. Stamp price increases: Canada Post will introduce a new tiered pricing structure for letters mailed within Canada. The new price will be 85 cents for bulk stamps, with discounts for customers who use the mail most. Consumers who buy stamps one at a time will pay $1 per stamp. More postal franchises: Canada Post will open more franchise postal outlets in stores across Canada. The company will partner with local retail businesses conveniently located in the communities they serve and offer added benefits, such as better parking and longer hours. Streamline operations: Changes to internal operations will make for a more efficient flow of parcels and mail through the network and to the customers. The changes are driven by technology such as faster computerized sorting equipment, centralized processing and providing more delivery employees with fuelefficient vehicles. Fewer employees: The company says it will continue to bring the cost of labour in line with its competitors through attrition and collective bargaining over time. The average age of current employees is 48 and Canada Post expects nearly 15,000 employees to retire or leave the company over the next five years, more than enough to allow for the reduction of between 6,000 and 8,000 positions, mainly through attrition. Canada Post will also take the steps to permanently address the sustainability of its pension plan. Canada Post says that if the changes aren’t undertaken, continued losses will soon jeopardize its financial self-sufficiency and become a significant burden on taxpayers and customers.

Province sets up website to accept comments, about pipeline project News – A new website will give Ontarians the opportunity to learn more and share their views on the TransCanada Energy East Pipeline project proposed to transport crude oil through the Upper Ottawa Valley as it goes from Alberta to New Brunswick. One Dec. 19, the Ontario Energy Board launched www.ontarioenergyboard.ca/oebenergyeast. The website is the first part of a broad and inclusive consultation with Ontario residents. It will provide Ontarians with the latest information on the proposal, as well as opportunities to take part in the consultation. “We would like this website to be a one-stopshop for information on the consultation process,” explained board chair Rosemarie Leclair. “Over the course of the consultation, we will be updating this website regularly so that Ontarians can learn about our progress and share their thoughts with the consultation team.” At the behest of the provincial government, energy board officials intend to visit a number of communities along the proposed pipeline’s route in early 2014 as part of a two-part consultation with the public, First Nations and Métis communities, local communities and stakeholders. The route includes a section that runs through the Pembroke area, Whitewater Region, Admaston-Bromley, Horton, McNab-Braeside and the Pakenham area. The plan is to convert an existing natural gas pipeline into one that will carry oil. That plan will include the construction of at least one pumping station in this area. 6 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, December 26, 2013

The federal government will decide whether to approve the proposed Energy East Pipeline after a National Energy Board hearing that is expected to begin in 2014. As part of the Ontario government’s participation in the National Energy Board process, the Ontario Minister of Energy formally requested the provincial energy board to consult on the following issues regarding the proposed Energy East Pipeline: • the impacts on Ontario natural gas consumers in terms of rates, reliability and access to supply, especially on those consumers in eastern and northern Ontario; • the impacts on pipeline safety and on the natural environment in Ontario; • the impacts on local communities as well as First Nations and Métis communities; • the short and long-term economic impacts of the project in Ontario. NORTHERN GATEWAY

Meanwhile, a review panel has recommended the federal government approve Enbridge’s controversial Northern Gateway pipeline project through Alberta and British Columbia. The approval hinges on 209 conditions, including developing a marine mammal protection plan, researching heavy oil clean-up and conducting emergency response exercises. The federal government has 180 in which to decide whether to support, reject or ask the National Energy Board to modify the recommendation.

EDITORIAL

This week is time to give it a rest Another year is almost complete. And what a 12 months it has been. Unfortunately, there was plenty of conflict in these parts in 2013, highlighted by the lengthy controversy between McNab-Braeside and Arnprior over recreation and library services. It also pitted township residents against one another as the debate raged in the latter half of the year. McNab-Braeside has always had a rural-urban divide, and this debate just accentuated the differences. At one point in the late 1990s in the middle of the amalgamation fever, it was suggested that the non-urban area along the Madawaska River from Braeside to Griffith be merged into one mighty rural municipality. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Greater Madawaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; would have been double the size it is now. However, McNabBraesideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reeve of the time, noting that it was a one-sided idea springing out of Calabogie, suggested going ahead with such a merger would be like a minnow (Bagot and Blythfield) swallowing a whale (McNab). So the up-river dreams of a large township along the Madawaska never materialized.

And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as well, as there would still have been a divide between the forest-tourism area at the top end and the more farming areas in McNab. Another suggestion that has been unsuccessfully floated around off and on in the last 15 years is the merger of Arnprior, McNabBraeside, Pakenham and the west end of West Carleton. That super-municipality would have its divisions too. It goes to show that when it comes to this end of the county, there are no perfect solutions. And what should one conclude from that? That we have to do the best we can with what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got now and be good neighbours in the process. Hopefully, recreation-library problems will be solved early in the new year, and failing that at election time. But for the next week, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to forget our differences and instead focus on our similarities, strengths and good-will. So to everyone on both sides of the fence, have a relaxing and reinvigourating holiday week. Time to get rested and refreshed, for there will be plenty to do in the new year.

Volunteers are provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unsung heroes: Lieutenant-Governor To the Editor: A New Year Message from David C. Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. As the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative in Ontario, I am most pleased to send my best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year. As I near the end of my term in office, it is natural to reflect over the past six years. Serving you as Lieutenant Governor of Ontario has been transformative, for me and for my wife Ruth Ann. The most common question Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m asked is: â&#x20AC;&#x153;what will you remember most about Ontario and its people?â&#x20AC;? The answer is easy - the extraordinary role of volunteers. They are the unsung heroes of our society, the foundation for our quality of life as a province. Every year, millions of Ontarians, young and old, donate their energy, experience and passion to their communities. Voluntarism and the spirit it generates are values we hold dear. I have been welcomed by Ontarians in their communities, on occasions both joyful and somber. Together we have commemorated anniversaries, honoured local heroes, launched exhibitions and commemorations, awarded organizational and individual excellence, celebrated our diversity, and participated in a host of community and civic events. Ruth Ann has enjoyed tremendously her

visits on my behalf to the Lieutenant Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aboriginal Summer Reading Camps in Northern Ontario, places inaccessible to my scooter. She has been proud to honour the Crownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connections with Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s First Nations and to bear witness to the people, their history and their cultures. As the first Lieutenant Governor of Ontario with a physical disability, I made accessibility the overarching theme of my term in office - focusing on what people can do, rather than what they cannot do. Throughout my six years in office, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spoken to employer groups, service clubs and community organizations around the province about the strong economic case for employing people with disabilities. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pleased to say that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve witnessed some great progress, but there is still more work to do. I have faith that this work will continue, long after I leave office. Serving the people of Ontario has been the most extraordinary and humbling experience of my life. I thank you so very much for welcoming Ruth Ann and me into your communities. We shall never forget your hospitality, your warmth, and your many kindnesses. As The Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative in Ontario, I wish each and every one of you a healthy, prosperous and happy New Year.

Corbin has made a name in comedy in Ottawa and across the country and Grinstead is following suit. Grinstead’s laid-back charm and absurd takes on life have earned him the reputation of being one of the goofiest and most imaginative upcoming comics in the Toronto scene. His work ethic and jovial nature has landed him opportunities within events such as NXNE, the Cottage Country Comedy Festival and No Kidding on iChannel, on top of festival performances and countless appearances on the GTA comedy scene, Grinstead has also been a part of two independent tours (Hometown Heroes, On the Rocks Comedy Tour) that have taken him far out of his usual stomping grounds to the East Coast. He was also the recipient of

Corbin was nominated for ‘Funniest Newcomer’ at the Canadian Comedy Awards twice. His observations on everyday life are thoughts many

share but never dare to express. He has worked with many top acts in Canadian comedy and has opened for headliners such as Mike MacDonald, Mitch Hedberg, Russell Peters and Harland Williams.

Chickadee small, but one tough bird Lifestyle - It seems weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re obsessed with toughness. Sport analysts praise toughness in players. Television ads promote tough trucks. And a popular â&#x20AC;&#x153;sportâ&#x20AC;? consists of two opponents beating each other senseless until only the toughest remains conscious. We also admire toughness in wild animals. This perception usually involves size and strength, with eagles perceived tougher than doves, and wolves tougher than deer. However, one of the toughest birds in our area is neither large nor strong. The bird that bears the toughness crown is the Blackcapped Chickadee. So why do I proclaim the chickadee to be one tough bird? Well, think of the recent cold snaps we experienced. The mercury dropped to minus-20 with the wind-chill lowering that temperature another 10 degrees. None of our wild neighbours includ-

Michael Runtz Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way ing chickadees had propane-heated retreats to keep them warm. They had no choice but to tough it out. Chickadees are particularly good at toughing it out. Prior to winter these amicable birds increase their feather mass. Their outer coat of gray and white becomes thicker, but the real warmth arises from the luxurious coat of down between those feathers and the skin. Nothing retains body heat better than chickadee feathers. One study revealed that the difference in temperature between the air outside the feathers and the surface of a chickadeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skin could

with the ackers Junior B P ir game before the VS Perth

be as great as 98 degrees Fahrenheit. That means very little body heat passes through those feathers. They offer outstanding insulation! Chickadees go one step further. When temperatures plunge, as they have in recent weeks, chickadees lower their body temperature at night by as much as 12 degrees Celsius. One might think this is counterproductive in terms of staying warm. But maintaining high body temperatures means burning up fuel reserves. The warmer

a body and the colder the surrounding air, the greater amount of energy needed to keep internal furnaces stoked. By lowering the body temperature, a chickadee lowers that temperature gradient and less energy is needed to keep itself warm. This is analogous to turning down the thermostat at night. You certainly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t freeze but still you experience great savings in energy. When its body temperature drops a chickadee enters a deep sleep called torpor. To make sure it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enter

eternal sleep, every now and again a chickadeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s large flight muscles start shivering, generating heat that brings the body temperature up slightly, much like the way our thermostat kick-starts the furnace when the house temperature drops a little too low. Chickadees might be small birds, but they have very large heads for their size. That size seems to reflect intelligence, for chickadees dine much of the winter on food they have stashed away. The brain is not only proportionately large for a chickadeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s size in summer; it grows larger in the fall. The hippocampus - the portion of the brain that is dedicated to spatial memory experiences that growth. Perhaps it takes a larger computer to run such a complex program. Regardless, when you are as tough as a chickadee, you deserve to have an oversized head! The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Grooming operations got underway last week for the snowmobiling season as the status of local trails is reported as either â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;limited availabilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (yellow) or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;availableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (green). All snowmobiles displaying a valid Snowmobile Trail Permit in the proper location now have access to Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Club (OFSC) prescribed snowmobile trails, but the decision to enter and ride any given trail is up to each individual snowmobiler at his/her own risk. In an OFSC district 6 news release, snowmobilers are reminded to make the decision based on experience and a common sense evaluation of a number of current variables, including weather, temperature, terrain, sled condition and personal capability. The OFSC has published and promoted a list of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Assumptions for OFSC Trail Useâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to ensure snowmobilers know what behaviour is expected while riding OFSC trails. Snowmobilers are advised to ride with extra caution at this time of year since early winter snow and ice conditions can be very changeable and unpredictable from day to day. The OFSC points out that snowmobiling on CP or CN corridors that has had the rail lines pulled up in the last year is only allowed on maintained sections as designated by OFSC trail signage. Snowmobiles are not allowed on unmaintained sections not being utilized by the clubs. Many hidden hazards exist so please stay off unused sections,â&#x20AC;? says the OFSC. For more, visit the OFSC Interactive Trail Guide at www.ofsc.on.ca.

Lincoln’s MKC Moves from Concept to Production by Brian Turner

Lincoln marked another milestone recently in its journey to compete decisively in the prestige and luxury market with the all-new 2015 MKC SPV (Small Premium Utility Vehicle). The Lincoln design team faced the dual challenge of meeting the ever-changing demands of younger luxury vehicle consumers while further defining the Lincoln design DNA. The MKC Concept, which was revealed to the public at the 2013 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, introduced a uniquely crafted wraparound lift-gate, a design feature that carried over to the production model. Its side-cut design gives MKC an uninterrupted rear-view to epitomize elegance, while its hands-free feature is another example of Lincoln’s commitment to build customer-friendly vehicles. Those aspirations also carry through to the interior, where the merging of craftsmanship and technology combine to offer a warm, luxurious environment. Featuring an architecturally unique instrument panel that showcases Lincoln’s signature push-button gear shifter, MKC creates an open, welcoming interior. Inviting leathers and available Bridge of Weir leather and real-wood trim accentuate

MKC’s elegance and grace. “We gave attention to every detail to convey a stylish, luxurious vehicle,” said Soo Kang, Lincoln interior design chief. “The structure of the interior allows for openness, and that space contributes to the overall ambience. We want this vehicle to not only meet but often exceed the expectations of the new Lincoln customer.” “We’re confident we’ve created an allnew vehicle that will attract new customers to the brand while meeting the expectations of long-time Lincoln drivers,” said Max Wolff, director, Lincoln Design. “The execution of the new liftgate is a prime example of how a signature premium design element can create a better customer experience.” In the 2015 MKC, Lincoln will introduce a series of customer-focused comfort features they call ‘Lincoln Experiences’. Systems such as ‘Approach Detection’ will allow the MKC to respond to an approaching owner (identified by the key in his or her possession) and illuminate the ground near the doors and in the outer door handle pockets for easier and safer entry. A communication system will allow drivers to interact with the vehicle remotely using the

smart phone-enabled MyLincoln Mobile app. An embedded modem on each vehicle communicates with the app which allows owners to start, lock, unlock and locate the vehicle. Drivers also can use the app to perform a variety of other functions such as place a call for roadside assistance; monitor the vehicle’s fuel level; check the tire pressure and battery status; and program engine start times. .“Lincoln Experiences are about creating a warm, personal driving experience every time a Lincoln owner approaches their vehicle,” said Matt VanDyke, Director, Global Lincoln. “Today’s premium car buyer is more demanding than ever. Our goal is to create vehicles that not only meet those evolving demands, but exceed them and redefine what the luxury car-buying and driving experience should be.” Production of the all-new 2015 Lincoln MKC is slated to begin in the second quarter of 2014 at the Louisville Assembly Plant in Louisville, Ky. Vehicles will begin arriving to Lincoln dealerships next summer. Canadian pricing has been announced, starting at $39,940.

News - The County of Renfrew committee make-up for 2014 will be virtually the same as in 2013, other than McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell taking on a new role. The striking committee finalized the New Year’s committee structure after Peter Emon began his second term as warden with the Dec. 10 inaugural session of county council. Emon sits on all standing committees – finance and administration, operations, development and property, health, social services, and the striking committee. The only changes among the standing committees involve Mary Campbell of McNabBraeside and Norm Lentz of Brudenell, Lyndoch and Raglan. They do a switch, as Campbell moves from health to the development and property committee and Lentz leaves development and property for the health committee. Raye-Anne Briscoe of Admaston-Bromley continues to chair finance and administration. The other committee members are Don Eady of Horton, Don Rathwell of Whitewater Region, Walter Stack of Arnprior, Emon, Bob Sweet of Petawawa, Janice Visneskie Moore of Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards, and vice-chair Jack Wilson of Laurentian Valley. Stack continues to chair the operations committee, which also includes Eady, Emon, Lentz, Audrey Green of Renfrew, David Shulist of Madawaska Valley and vice-chair Harold Weckworth of North Algona Wilberforce. Visneskie Moore chairs the health committee

that also includes Lentz, Emon, Jennifer Murphy of Bonnechere Valley, Dick Rabishaw of Laurentian Hills, Wilson and vice-chair Tammy Stewart of Head, Clara and Maria. Sweet chairs the development and property committee. Other members are Briscoe, Campbell, Murphy, David Thompson of Deep River and vice-chair Green. Rathwell chairs social services, which is completed by Rabishaw, Emon, Shulist, Stewart, Thompson, Weckworth and vice-chair Campbell. The striking committee consists of chair Wilson, vice-chair Murphy, Emon, Briscoe, Rabishaw and Stewart. There are also 16 ad-hoc committees. They include the warden’s advisory committee, which consists of Emon, Briscoe, Murphy, Rabishaw, Rathwell, Sweet, Thompson and Visneskie Moore. County councillors appointed to the board of health are Emon, Rabishaw, Stewart and Wilson. Members of the county-city liaison committee are Briscoe, Emon, Sweet and Wilson. Another busy ad-hoc committee is the CP Rail corridor advisory committee, whose members are Sweet, Briscoe and Rathwell. Green and Murphy are the county’s members on the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association board of directors, and Weckworth is the county representative for the Shaw Woods Outdoor Education Centre. Green also has ad-hoc committee duties as a member of the municipal accessibility advisory committee, land division committee, K&P management advisory committee, and the Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. environmental stewardship council.

Arnprior team wins gold, takes step toward qualifying for provincials Sports – The Arnprior U16 Junior A Devils continued their successful play by winning gold at their home ringette tournament Dec. 15. The Devils are off to an excellent start in their season, capturing silver and gold in first two tournaments of the year. The Arnprior team is vying to qualify for a top-seven ranking for the U16 Junior A provincial championships to be held in Kitchener March 13-16. Qualifying for the Provincials is a very competitive process that requires teams across Ontario to play in a minimum four tournaments throughout the season, two in their region and two out, to accumulate as many provincial ranking points (wins) as possible. The teams with the highest ranking points based on the win percentage of games played move onto the provincials and the Arnprior squad is one of 22 teams competing for this privilege. The Devils have shown they can compete with the top teams in the area with appearances in the gold medal games at both Ottawa and Arnprior tournaments. Arnprior went 4-1 at Ottawa Tournament Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 and won silver. The Devils swept to victory over Nepean, Ottawa White, Ottawa Purple and Guelph to advance to the final against Gloucester-Cumberland. The Devils went one better in the Arnprior tournament Dec. 13-15, again going 4-1, but this time they struck gold. The Arnprior team amassed victories against Ottawa White, West Ferris and Ayr, while falling to West Ottawa in round-robin play. That set up a gold medal final game rematch against West Ottawa, top-ranked in the province. The Arnprior squad dug deep for a thrilling 6-4 victory before an enthusiastic crowd at the Nick Smith Centre. The Arnprior McNab Ringette Association congratulates the girls on achieving 14 of a possible 16 provincial ranking points, giving the team a healthy 0.875 winning percentage. All the players’ hard work on and off ice with weekly practices is paying off. The next tournament challenges for the Arnprior U16 Junior A team will be the two out-of-region tournaments. They will travel to Cambridge Jan 3-5 and Ajax Feb 7-9.

Packers to host Blue Wings, honour referee this Friday John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

Sports – The Arnprior Junior B Packers play three important games in the next 10 days as they try to fend off teams trying to supplant them in second place in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Valley Division. The second-place Packers host the fourthplace Perth Blue Wings this Friday, Dec. 27 at 8 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre.

With some transformer problems at the centre last Friday, the game with the Renfrew Timberwolves was cancelled along with the ceremony to honour long-time local referee John ‘Jake’ Rouleau who died in February. That ceremony has now been changed to the start of this Friday’s game against Perth. The public is invited to attend to participate in the honouring of Rouleau as his family takes part in a pre-game ceremony. Puck drop will come about 8 p.m.

The cancelled game with Renfrew will be rescheduled for a later date. Arnprior travels to Almonte Saturday, Dec. 28 for a 7:30 p.m. game against the Thunder, who have ridden a hot streak into third place in the Valley Division. The Packers host fifth-place Stittsville Royals in their first tilt of the new year, Friday, Jan. 3 at 8 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre. The Packers have passed the half-way mark in their schedule.

As for Dec. 21, their leading scorer was Damian Armstrong with 16 goals and 13 assists. Their three other players with at least 20 points are captain John McLean (11-12), Patrick MGrath (14-8) and Chris Marchand (7-13). Armstrong leads the team with three gamewinning goals. Corey Chaplin has a team-leading 54 penalty minutes. Goalie Erik Miksik was a 12-8-2 record with one shutout, a 3.83 goals against average and a .895 save percentage.

Arnprior’s Green Dragons enjoy ‘Future Sens’ experience Staff

Sports – With stars in their eyes and hockey glory in their hearts, they took to the ice at Canadian Tire Centre. Skating the same ice as their NHL heroes, the Green Dragons of Arnprior faced off against the Islanders from Gananoque in a novice showdown. All the fun took place at the home of the Ottawa Senators Dec. 12, part of the club’s popular ‘Future Sens’ program offered to area minor hockey associations throughout the year. “They were very excited,” said Matt Naismith, head coach of the Green Dragons who flew up and down the ice all game en route to a 10-2 win. “They have been looking forward to it for quite some time.” The Green Dragons are undefeated this season and they showed why, on this biggest of stages, in front of a large crowd of family and friends. “They had a high energy level,” Naismith said. Despite being on the other end of the final score, the Islanders were just as thrilled to be at the CTC. Asked what his players enjoyed most about the day, coach Tim Lanigan said, “Probably just the experience of being on the big ice.” This was their second year with Future Sens. A year ago, the Islanders played an exhibition game at the rink when it was known as Scotiabank Place. “The kids all had fun,” Lanigan said, noting they were eager to do it again. The Future Sens program is open to youngsters aged six to 13 (initiation to peewee), says Brock Gibson, account manager with the NHL hockey club. The exhibition minor

Participating teams agree to sell 100 tickets at a reduced price to that night’s game. In exchange, the teams not only get to play two 20-minute periods at the CTC but enjoy many extras that go along with it, including Sens theme music playing as players skate onto the ice, individual player introductions, national anthem, horn

sound with each goal, and announcements of each goal scorer and assist. Each game is also recorded and available to purchase on DVD. “It’s the full Sens game-day experience – just for the little guys,” Gibson said. While this year’s program is almost fully booked, there may still be a few spots left. “People start booking as early as August,” Gibson said. “The program fills up for the most part by the end of November.” To learn more, visit the Senators’ website (www/ottawasenators.com) or call 613-599-0210.

This particular Christmas concert was memorable for many reasons

R0012453059

Lifestyle - The Christmas concerts at the Northcote School usually went off without a hitch. Miss Crosby saw to that! For the entire month of December we had rehearsals every day after school. Never could we miss even a minute of our studies. Oh no, not with Miss Crosby! That meant it was getting on to dark by the time we walked the three-and-a-half-mile trek back home. And every last pupil had to take part. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if you had a voice like a crow, you sang in the choir. If you

were so shy, you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say your name out loud, you had a part in the Nativity scene anyway. And the program rarely varied. The parents who crowded into the Northcote School to see their children perform could count on a repeat performance of the year before. That is, all except that one year when everything that could go wrong, went wrong! We had rehearsed until we knew our lines backwards and frontwards. The tree was up in the corner, and the school room had been scrubbed from top to bottom. Christmas messages were written on the blackboards, and the desks had been piled in the cloak room, and chairs moved in from the United Church. We pupils were to be at the school early, with our parents arriving in time for the concert. Well, as soon as we got to school, there was trouble brewing. First of all, the mice had eaten all the popcorn balls off the Christmas tree on Friday night, so all that was left for decoration was the wisps of silver tinsel Miss Crosby brought from home each year, and the coloured paper stars each pupil made. Of course, there was no piano in the school, and so that year Miss Crosby had Three Mile Hermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents bring in their crank-up Victrola (I think the only Victrola in the entire Northcote area), and from someone else she scrounged a record of Silent Night. The record was as big as a meat platter, and since Three Mile knew how to get the music out of the Victrola, he was to make it work at the appropriate time in the concert. The appropriate time was when the Nativity Scene was coming to a close, and just before Santa was to burst through the back door. Bad Marguirite, as usual, was an angel, after she had complained loud and long

that she was tired of being a sheep, and to keep peace Miss Crosby had let her wear a handmade silver halo like Velma and me, who were also angels. My sister Audrey was again the Virgin Mary, which didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t please Cora one bit. Finally, the parents were crammed into the school, the old stove was belting out the heat, and you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see out the windows for the steam off bodies and the bad smell of overshoes and gum rubbers hung in the room like a cloud. The first thing that happened to put a damper on the concert was when big Emma grabbed a hold of the make-shift curtain (just a group of flour bag sheets hung on chicken wire to separate the performers from the audience) to stop herself from falling, and the entire â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stage-curtainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; came down like a cloud wafting from the sky. Someone got a ladder from the cloak room, and it was hammered back up and the concert was ready to begin. Miss Crosby got us through the singing numbers, and what passed for a pantomime, and the Nativity Scene was about to begin. Someone turned down the oil lamps on cue, and Two Mile got the nod from Miss Crosby to start cranking the Victrola. Somehow, someone brought the wrong record, and we were listening to a high screechy voice belting out a song from the First World War! Two Mile Herman never missed a beat, and kept turning the handle

on the side of the Victrola and we continued on with the Nativity scene as if that was the music we had rehearsed with all along, even though none of us, except Two Mile, had ever heard the record before. The concert finally came to a close, and after thunderous applause from the parents, the entire school room of 18 pupils, sat on the floor at the front to await Santa Claus, who was supposedly standing out in the cold waiting to be let in. Uncle Alec Thom got up and went to the door, and Santa, in all his glory, flew in, ringing a set of bells on a piece of rein, exactly like our horse King wore, and just about knocked Uncle Alec for a loop. He careened into the classroom, and immediately sat right on the knee of the first woman in the back row. She let out a warwhoop and with a mighty shove pushed him to the floor, where it took three strapping men to right him. It was obvious to everyone that Santa had been into something stronger than green tea. By this time the heat in the crowded little one-room school house was bouncing off the walls. Uncle Alec, my father and a couple other men got â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; into a chair at the back of the room, and within minutes he was sound asleep and snoring loud enough to waken the dead. Miss Crosby ended up handing out the Christmas presents herself, a few of the mothers passed around cookies, and the Christmas concert came to a close for another year. Someone drove â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home in his own cutter, and the talk around Northcote for weeks on end was about all the excitement at the school that cold winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s night. My brother Emerson and Cecil said it was the best Christmas concert ever held at the Northcote school.

Drug costs likely to skyrocket under CETA, critics maintain derek.dunn@metroland.com

News – A study shows prescription drug users who can least afford it will be hardest hit by Canada’s trade deal with Europe. A Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives examination predicts between $850 million and $1.65 billion a year will be added to the cost of pre-

scription drugs in Canada if the trade deal includes longer patents – of up to two years – for brand name pharmaceuticals, along with other rules. “This was a one-way cave-in (or a big give-away?) to big pharma with no benefits to Canada,” reads a release on the organization’s website, “whether in the form of promised jobs or new innovation from European drug companies, which stand to

Red Cross PSWs out on strike News – A strike by Canadian Red Cross personal support workers is affecting home care service in the Ottawa area and up the Valley. The 4,500 employees of the province’s largest home-care agency are members of the Services Employees International Union (SEIU). The workers took to the picket lines Dec. 11 after voting overwhelmingly to reject a tentative agreement that included an 11-cent per hour increase to a $15 per hour salary. The employees were upset there was no significant improvement in other issues such as the lack of pay for travel time and having to pay the full cost of gas for overtime visits to clients. “The leaders of this for-profit company are being paid $300,000 a year with public funds that should be going to improve care for clients,” said SEIU Healthcare president Sharleen Stewart. “Instead, they are forcing poverty-level wages on women who

are now fighting for justice on a freezing picket line.” Workers are on the picket line in various communities, including Pembroke, Bancroft and Ottawa. “It is time for the Premier to get involved,” said Stewart. “While the politicians are on holiday, the home care system is being wrecked by a rogue agency.” Meanwhile, in a news release the Red Cross and its care partners stressed that “the safety and well-being of our clients is our top priority.” They reported that contingency plans are in place and “every effort” is being made “to minimize any disruption in service to our clients.” The Red Cross also saluted “the important role our personal support workers play in the delivery of services to our clients. They are a critically important part of our organizations.” There is no disruption to any other Red Cross services.

make a lot of money from the unnecessary patent changes.” The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) was hailed as a major accomplishment by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservatives. But since its announcement – critics say timed to divert attention from the senate scandal – few details have been released. Both the Liberals and New Democrats support a trade agreement with Europe, but they fear Harper gave away too much from Canada’s side to get the deal done when it served

political purposes. And the longer details are withheld, the more they fear the worst. Ottawa Centre NDP MP Paul Dewar said, when it comes to prescription drugs, the federal government offered to help provinces offset higher costs, but that only helps those who access provincial services. “There are too many people left out,” he said. “And those are the people that need help the most.” He favours a deal because the European Union will expect Canada to meet the social democracy-dominat-

ed group’s labour, environmental and human rights standards. Former federal Liberal leadership contender Karen McCrimmon said if Harper won jobs and other concessions from the Europeans he would have announced it. “Harper needed some good news so badly I’m afraid he might have given away the farm,” McCrimmon said. “I’m afraid it’s going to be like the corporate tax cuts: We didn’t require investments or jobs. That’s lost money.”

CARD OF THANKS

The family of the late Lloyd Timmins, would like to express sincere Thanks and Appreciation to our family, friends and neighbours for their support, prayers, cards, ďŹ&#x201A;owers, donations, gifts of food at the time of our loss. Thank you to the Arnprior & District Hospital staff, the nurses, the palliative team, dietary, housekeeping and maintenance staff for their support and care during Lloyds stay. We especially want to thank Lucy for making a very special wedding anniversary remembrance for our family. Thank you to staff and residents at the Arnprior Villa for the support and compassion they have provided over the last year. We would like to thank Pastor Young, Rev. Johnson, and Rev. Stoppa for their prayers and support, Ken and Doug for providing the music. Also to the ladies of St. Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church for preparing and serving the luncheon after the funeral service. Our heartfelt thanks to the Pallbearers, the honorary pallbearers and to the CR Gamble Funeral Home for their guidance and compassion. Lloyd will always hold a special place in our hearts and we thank you for the visits and phone calls, or maybe you kept him in your prayers. They were all welcomed and your kindness will always be remembered. Marion, Darlene, Beth and their families

I feel a warmth around us like your presence is so near, And Close my eyes to visualize your face when you were here, I miss the times we spent together they are locked inside my heart, For as long as I have those memeories we will never be apart, Even though we can speak no more my voice is always there, Because every night before I sleep I have you in my Prayer

August 3, 1950 – December 24, 2011 A million times we needed you, A million times we cried, If love alone would have saved you, You would of never died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still, In our hearts you hold a place, No one can ever fill. A light from our household is gone, A voice from our love is stilled, A place in our vacant home, Which never can be filled. Some may think you are forgotten, Though on earth you are no more, But in our memory you are with us, As you always were before. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone, A part of us went with you, The day you went to God’s home. Your precious memories are for keepsakes, with which we never part, God has you safely in his keeping, But we have you forever in our hearts Author ~ Unknown Until we meet again love from Diane, Angela, Jennifer, Joe, Alica, Kristin, Ethan & Jacob

tion with others in the sessions. Moreover, this also extends to include involvement within the community. Dancing with the valley group, The Hy-Liners, gives members opportunities to volunteer locally, for example, by performing for residents and staff at hospitals and seniors’ residences, and assisting with fundraisers for churches and other establishments. “You will also have chances to entertain at special events for the benefit of worthwhile causes such as children’s camps, local support groups, and such others,” Chatterton added. To top it all, daytime line-dance programs are conveniently offered in several recreation centre in the area. The programs will be running again in Almonte, Arnprior, Carleton Place and Pakenham, and with its steady growth in popularity, the activity might also become available at other sites in the Valley, starting with this spring’s sessions. All suggestions for additional sites will be welcomed and considered, promised Chatterton. The fall session, which wrapped up Dec. 16, attracted participants from the host communities as well as Braeside, White Lake, Carp, Constance Bay, Eganville, Horton, Kinburn and Renfrew. The winter sessions will run from the beginning of January to midMarch, running from 1:30 to 3 p.m. They are available Mondays at Arnprior’s Nick Smith Centre (613-6237301), Wednesdays at the Carambeck Community Centre in Carleton Place (613-257-1704) and Thursdays through the Town of Mississippi Mills (613-256-1055), alternating between the Almonte and Stewart (Pakenham) community centres. Prospective participants are encouraged to pre-register by contacting Chatterton, a certified bilingual Ontario educator with decades of experience by calling 613-623-0976 or emailing mais-brown@sympatico.ca. “So, don’t delay,” she says. “Put daytime line-dancing on your calendar for your choice of afternoons in winter 2014 - Mondays, Wednesdays and\or Thursdays.”

Lifestyle – What is a great daytime activity that will add some ‘spice’ to your exercise routine this winter? Local dancing instructor Hyacinth Chatterton is urging everyone to consider ‘stepping-it-up’ by line-dancing. The enthusiastic line-dancing instructor points out there are several reasons why people should consider participating in the popular activity. “Keep in mind that, in addition to being suitable for every age, it also offers many ‘senior-friendly’ options for the interesting and wide variety of dance moves it presents,” she says. Chatterton stresses that line-dancing is definitely in the “fun-to-do” category, and activates those “good-foryou” hormones. The formats available include Western-Swing, Waltz, Latin Rhythms, Jazz, Country, ChaCha, Celtic and many others. As a bonus, signing up with a dancing partner is not a requirement, as it often is for some other dance-forms, she says. At the same time, both genders and all ages are most welcome to join in the fun. Chatterton said line-dancing is also very instrumental in exercising your body as well as your brain. “First of all, the movements provide some basic aerobics, and the danceform is acknowledged as an effective weight-bearing exercise. “Next, your brain-power is continually ‘in gear’ with ‘fun-challenges’, and receives a beneficial boost as you aim to learn and retain the repetitive sequences presented; these range from the ultra-simple to more involved levels of input and concentration as you progress. These physical benefits all combine to improve muscle tone, agility and also brain-power.” Chatterton said that with its ‘allages’ and ‘senior-friendly’ approach, previous experience is not a prerequisite. “Many alternate moves are available and demonstrated for those who prefer to have options for some of the intricate steps. This ensures that each participant enjoys dancing within her/ his comfort-zone.” Chatterton says another important aspect is the obvious social interac-

Don’t let your holidays go to waste. During the holiday season, we virtually drown in paper, packaging and party waste -- and there’s no holiday magic to make it disappear. Ontario’s municipalities run successful recycling programs that are easy to use. But all the new materials and fancy packages are making recycling a lot more difficult.

What can you do? • Use your blue box so that recyclable holiday waste doesn’t end up in landfill. • Learn how the proposed Waste Reduction Act would reduce taxpayer costs and encourage packaging that is easier to recycle at:
