EMC news – The Town of Arnprior received an early Christmas present last week. Town council gave the green light last Thursday morning to integrate its police services with the Renfrew OPP. Renfrew Staff Sgt. Colin Slight answered questions from councillors during a special council meeting, indicating to them it would be beneficial for cost-savings reasons, but they would have to determine the type of police presence they require in the community. Currently, Arnprior’s OPP detachment is classified as a 5.1 non-contract policing operation. Amalgamating it with the Renfrew OPP would mean the sharing of key services and finding efficiencies. “We’re really at your mercy,” said Staff Sgt. Slight.

EMC news – It’s going to be quite the party. Arnprior will be ending its 150th birthday year and bringing in 2013 with a rollicking celebration New Year’s Eve. Everyone is invited to the Nick Smith Centre to take part. The Arnprior 150 Committee has organized activities from 1 p.m. to midnight for all ages, culminating in a massive fireworks display at midnight. Families are welcome to come to the Nick Smith Centre from 1 to 4 p.m. to wear off some of that Christmas turkey and plum pudding with free swims and

skates. Of course, all that exercise will make participants hungry again. So there will be a free barbecue offered by the Arnprior 150 Committee from 4 to 5 p.m., when neighbours can socialize on the last day of 2012. The contents of the Arnprior 150 time capsule will be on display for the last time before it is locked away for 25 years. There is also an Arnprior 150 hockey display by Arnprior and District Archivist Laurie Dougherty at the Nick Smith Centre. A banquet and dance for adults begins at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour.

EMC news – Braeside will once again have a post office. McNab-Braeside Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie made the announcement at the Dec. 18 regular meeting of council. “I’ve been informed by Canada Post that we have a successful candidate and post office in Braeside,” said Blimkie. The post office will be housed at Robbin’s store in Braeside. Co-owner Peter Watson is expected to be named postmaster. He will complete the necessary training in the new year, said Blimkie. The village has been without a full-service post office since the death of Harold Leach. “Congratulations,” said Mayor Mary Campbell. “This is wonderful news.” She noted the issue has been a long-term project of the deputy mayor and thanked her for all her work on the matter.

School board amalgamation off table as saving measure to work with boards and their communities to ensure student needs are met.” Zegarac said that Minister of Education Laurel Broten met with all the school board associations and staff during the last summer to get input. “During pre-consultation sessions, many participants were clear this was not the right time to move forward with board amalgamations,” Zegarac said. “It was also shared with us there could be other ways to find savings.” GOOD NEWS

Renfrew County District School Board chairman David Kaiser said this is good news for Renfrew County school children and their parents. “Amalgamating such a large geographic region as Renfrew County with another

district in Eastern Ontario didn’t make sense,” Kaiser said. “Rural boards like ours connect strongly with their communities and losing local representation would have been detrimental to our students.” Zegarac says the minister still expects boards to “continue to exercise good judgement … in the current fiscal environment.” “I encourage boards to make progress on the commitment you have expressed in the past several months in finding opportunities for more innovative partnerships and greater efficiencies,” Zegarac said. “Protecting what we value most in education in Ontario in these tough financial times is a challenge that will require the best of our energies and ideas.”

Mayor supports OPP merger Continued from front

Mayor David Reid noted finding the right amount and level of service is of great importance to the town. Coun. Ted Strike asked if there were any costs the public should know about beforehand in regards to the maintenance of Arnprior’s current detachment building. “For our people, are we prepared to pay X number of dollars for this level of service?” he asked. “We should have a good feel for that cost.” Councillors were also concerned with a $10,000 phone bill, which CAO Michael Wildman said they would look into to find savings. The total cost of having a detachment office sits at $37,600. Council noted it would be difficult to find another tenant for the building if they were to not keep it for policing purposes. Coun. Lynn Grinstead said they wouldn’t be doing the police any service to get rid of the building. In the end, councillors agreed to keep the building, but noted the costs of operating it should be reviewed annually. Another question that arose was the sharing of officers and the reassurance Arnprior would have their own officer on duty at all times. Slight told councillors the detachment would always ensure the safety of the community by having officers present.

Additionally, if an officer were called for back-up in another region (such as Cobden), a replacement would replace that officer’s time and patrol Arnprior. “We’re going to meet the needs of the community,” Slight told council. “I can guarantee that.” He said the total number of hours a fulltime officer works during the year amounts to 1,467. In the end, mayor Reid told council amalgamating with Renfrew is the way to go, adding it makes better economical sense to integrate their services with the OPP like many other smaller detachments have done. “There are efficiencies there,” he said. “The province is heading in that direction. But we need to make sure to have continued OPP presence in the community.” Reeve Walter Stack said integrating services was all about being good neighbours to one another. “To me it’s a no-brainer,” he said, adding it was still important to have an effective OPP presence in the community with regular school visits.” “If we can save $350,000 a year, that’s great.” Slight told council it would be a good idea for Arnprior to join the Police Advisory Committee to ensure its voice is heard on policing matters.

New Year’s fireworks at midnight Continued from front

A dinner catered by Gib McMullen of Apple Sarah’s will be served at 7 p.m. with the dance featuring the four-piece Ottawa-based party band Roadhouse taking over at 9 p.m. That band is well-known for its being able to provide party songs of many types. With every member providing vocals, there are not many popular songs, they can’t sing. The $35 tickets for the dinner-dance are available at the Nick Smith Centre, Arnprior Town Hall and the Gallery Gift Shop. The whole community is invited to the Nick Smith Centre at midnight to join the dancers in viewing the fireworks display that will say good-bye to 2012 and hello to 2013. Organizers say it will be a fitting finale to a year that started with fireworks and included a county fair weekend, the Renfrew County Senior Games, the Arnprior Fair, White Pine Festival, the world Broomball championships and several other special events.

RBC employees and pensioners worldwide contributed countless hours in volunteer activities and funds to notfor-profit groups through payroll deductions, direct giving and special events. This year RBC recognized the work of two local staff members. Jackie Laughlin, branch manager, who served on the successful Digital Mammography Campaign and also on the organizing committee for Ladies Night – Mardi Bras. JoAnne McLean, manager of market operations, was also honoured due to her many years on the Partners in Caring board of directors, as well as several years as the lead on Ladies Night- Mardi Bras.

EMC news – The Renfrew County school boards will not have to merge with any of their neighbours. And that’s good news, says the public school board chairman. After careful consideration, the Ministry of Education has decided school board amalgamation would not make appreciable differences in budget savings. “We have made a decision to meet the savings target associated with board amalgamations through other means,” Deputy Minister George Zegarac wrote in a letter to Ontario Directors of Education on Dec. 10. “The expectations of the education sector in helping to meet the Ministry of Education budget target remains unchanged. “We still need everyone to do their part and we continue

DANA SMITH-HISKO

No referral necessary

For the 11th year in a row, St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teacher Dana Smith-Hisko, has conducted Operation Angel Tree.

Sandra Doran RMT

St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Operation Angel Tree nurtures studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spirit of giving EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Students at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are no stranger to the spirit of the Christmas season. This is the 11th year that teacher Dana Smith-Hisko, who is teaching Grade 8s this year, has conducted â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Operation Angel Treeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with her students and â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look forward to it every year,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each year, the kids seem to be more keen than the year before, and this year was no different.â&#x20AC;? Smith-Hisko explains that the purpose of this â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Operationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is to help nurture the importance of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;givingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each year I continue to be amazed at how much they value helping others and how little I need to do as a classroom teacher to promote that in them,â&#x20AC;? she said. GOALS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We post a board in the classroom with a goal that is set by the kids in my room. We determine how much money we feel we can donate to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Operationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; over the course of one month.â&#x20AC;? This year the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goal was $400. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought that it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easily obtained ... Boy was I wrong,â&#x20AC;? said Smith-Hisko. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids ended up contributing $510 to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Operationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and were through the moon with excitement because of their accomplishment.â&#x20AC;? She said the students created â&#x20AC;&#x153;incentivesâ&#x20AC;? for themselves along the way that helped to keep them motivated and on track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had me matching dollar amounts, baking for them, having a movie and popcorn day and even made me sing Christmas carols over the PA system one morning,â&#x20AC;? Smith-Hisko said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the end they sur-

passed their goal and were eager to go shopping.â&#x20AC;? For the last 11 years, the school has partnered with Giant Tiger, both the Arnprior store and the head office on Walkley Road, for the program. Each year Mike Marcil of Giant Tiger Arnprior and Greg Farrell, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president and CEO, â&#x20AC;&#x153;move mountains to help the cause,â&#x20AC;? Smith-Hisko reports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They understand that the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;needyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are the neediest during the holidays and eagerly look to help my kids make a difference in our community. She said Giant Tiger always opens its doors to 20-some 13years-old kids to shop for the morning and give them deals on toys within their store. For the last four years, Farrell has matched dollar for dollar what the students raise in the classroom. This year they contributed just over $500, which enabled the students to shop with just over $1,000. The story of generosity gets better, says Smith-Hisko. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the kids were shopping, a customer approached one of the groups and after finding out who they were shopping for, opened her wallet and handed the students $100 to add to their total. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a wonderful moment for the kids to be able to see that their efforts were being supported within the community and that people of all ages embrace the opportunity to give back and help out when they can.â&#x20AC;? On the day of the shopping, the students are divided into groups and choose a gender and age category for which to purchase gifts. This year they had just shy of $1,200 to work with. They spent an hour picking out gifts that would be adored by kids in their select-

ed gender and age category. Once the gifts were bought, they were sorted and delivered to the Salvation Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angel Tree at the Arnprior Mall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very proud of the Grade 8s for working so hard to make sure that kids in the community have gifts to open this Christmas,â&#x20AC;? said SmithHisko. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The compassion that they have as a group is truly amazing and sometimes overlooked. When you give kids opportunities to shine, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what you will see. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am also very proud to be a member of a community that has businesses like Giant Tiger that support student efforts like this one.â&#x20AC;? GRADE 7S GIVE TOO

The St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grade

7 class was also in a giving mood this Christmas. The class raised $300 to donate to World Vision for needy children in Africa. The money bought some unique gifts, including a goat, chickens, a fruit tree and medicine. The gifts are ones that will keep on giving for the recipients. The school also held a food drive for the Arnprior District Food Bank. Principal Mary-Lise Rowat praised the students for their enthusiasm for the various cause. She also said the school appreciated the support given students by businesses and residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We live in an incredibly generous community,â&#x20AC;? she said.

EDITORIAL

Spirit of the season shone through once again Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to become jaded with all the bad news weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been bombarded with throughout the year. Berserk gunmen. Egomaniacal dictators. Religious fanatics. Corrupt mayors. Pedophile priests. The proliferation of scam artists. Global warming. Layoffs. A widening gap between the rich and poor. Reality television shows. Zombies. The ending of the world (which if it indeed did happen Dec. 21, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be reading this). And closer to home: drought, fatalities involving drunk drivers, devastating fires, cats and dogs abandoned to fend for themselves, and thefts of Christmas presents made worse by the spray-painting of a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s furniture. No wonder many people have become cynical and despairing of the future. Yet, when this time of year rolls around, faith in humanity is often renewed. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cer-

tainly the case in Arnprior. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to remain negative in the face of so much generosity. While food banks in some communities approached the Christmas season with almost empty shelves, the Arnprior District Food Bank seems to be able to keep up a sufficient amount of supplies. The support is probably at least partly in reaction to how dedicated the food bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteers are. That support swells dramatically in December, as schools, industries, businesses, organizations and individuals line up to make donations. Those contributions are greatly appreciated, as they not only help those down on their luck have a merrier Christmas, they also enable the food bank to assist the needy right through the winter. The victims of the Dec. 14 fire on McGo-

nigal Street also found out how generous the community can be. Donations flooded in, many in appreciation of how kind the owner of the house has been to others in the past. What goes around, comes around. Playing a special part in the campaign were several Arnprior businesses who set up donation stations. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartening to see the generosity of local businesses people. They could throw up their hands in frustration over the number of shoppers who are lured by the bright lights of the city malls, and some even to the discount stores south of the border. In doing so, they desert their hometown businesses who pay taxes here and support local childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sports teams and many other endeavours that enrich the community. However, most local businesses do not respond by turning their backs on the commu-

nity, but instead accelerate their rate of giving this time of year. As do many citizens. At Arnprior Giant Tiger five days before Christmas, a group of students from St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic school were buying gifts for local children desperately in need of some Christmas cheer. Giant Tiger generously matched the money they had raised to enable them to buy twice as much. A woman shopper asked the students what they were doing. When told, she took five $20 bills out of her purse and gave it to them. The students, already setting an example of good citizenship, learned just how wonderfully generous their community can be. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible to become too jaded when things like this happen to brighten up our Christmas. Thanks Arnprior and area. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re smiling again.

Strategic planning process not inspiring town improvements To the Editor: Re. draft strategic plan for Arnprior. Bureaucratic mumble jumble. Here they go, serving their selves first, I thought. And the important interesting things are pushed far off into the future. By then the town leaders will be musing about developing a new strategic plan because the last one fell short and is now SPOTS (Strategic Plan On Top Shelf). In my experience, SPOTS is where most plans end up because their lifespan is about 11 months on average. The strategic plan lifecycle usually mirrors the annual budget planning cycle in most organizations. The one positive aspect about a good strategy discussion is the possibility of some shared values and views about future direction emerging from the process. Selective use of the agreed upon shared values and views can be used by leaders to forge and fashion future debates. For that reason alone, it is usually worth the effort for any entity to attempt developing a strategic plan even though it will end up as SPOTS. I read the draft through several times trying to find the real shared values and vision, not one about tweaking the org chart, HR and budget processes. I was hoping to see a vision like: â&#x20AC;&#x153;By 2017 the Town will be the preferred place in the Valley to live, work, play, shop and contribute to the community.â&#x20AC;? Furthermore, rather than honesty and integrity, which are sine qua non for any public official, elected or appointed, I would have expected to see words about service, value offered and excellence. Apparently the creators of the shared values statement believe that mediocrity is an acceptable value. If fixing HR and the budget process is the key enabling step to a solid management base and staying out of a debt/deficit/no-growth trap, then why not call it the â&#x20AC;&#x153;management modelâ&#x20AC;? for the Town and include some concrete but objective goals and measurements for both the bureaucrats and the political leaders of the Town.

Concrete goals and measurements will tell us if we are making progress rather than platitudes from politicians and pliable performance measures. A true Management Model includes all of the Town actors, what their â&#x20AC;&#x153;value creationâ&#x20AC;? proposition is, and how it is going to be rigorously measured and funded. A robust management model has other important elements as well the planners could consider. The seven priority areas in the draft are about 2 or 3 too many. Sure they are spread over five years in three phases that I would re-label as â&#x20AC;&#x153;consolidating/enabling, investing/ growing, and spending.â&#x20AC;? But if everything is a priority, then nothing is a priority. Focusing on too many little things will mean nothing big and important is accomplished. Perhaps they can be re-aligned into fewer â&#x20AC;&#x153;bucketsâ&#x20AC;? and whipping the Town staff into shape and figuring out a financial and capital budget model remains the starting point. But I would argue that it needs to be tied to a real vision and have actual milestones and true benchmarks in an overall â&#x20AC;&#x153;management model.â&#x20AC;? Since fixing HR and the budget process is what the planners want to do anyway, the townspeople just have to hold the town managersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; feet to the fire and make sure they measure and report on their progress. Simply put, if you do not rigorously describe and measure it, you cannot understand and manage it, and if you cannot manage it, you cannot afford it. I participated in the earlier public consultation supporting the updating of the strategic plan for the Town. At my table I learned a valuable lesson in lobbying from one of the non-resident land developers. Each time another participant made a comment, he intervened to drag the discussion back to and repeat his single concern: the speed and efficiency of Town Hall staff in pushing through his permitting and development requests.

Sack lunch story illustrates how we should treat our soldiers To the Editor: For those who give us liberty and freedom. Can’t thank you guys and gals enough! Den Zegen (Blessings without end). SACK LUNCHES

I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat. It was going to be a long flight. I’m glad I have a good book to read. Perhaps I will get a short nap, I thought. Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a conversation. “Where are you headed?” I asked the soldier seated nearest to me. “Petawawa. We’ll be there for two weeks for special training, and then we’re being deployed to Afghanistan.” After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were available for $5. It would be several hours before we reached the east, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time. As I reached for my wallet, I overheard a soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch. “No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch. Probably wouldn’t be worth five bucks. I’ll wait till we get to base.” His friend agreed. I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a $50 bill. “Take a lunch to all those soldiers.” She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly. Her eyes wet with tears. She thanked me. “My son was a soldier in Iraq; it’s almost like you are doing it for him.” Picking up 10 sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seat and asked, “Which do you like best - beef or chicken?” “Chicken,” I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to the front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class. “This is your thanks.” After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for the rest room. A man stopped me. “I saw what you did. I want to

be part of it. Here, take this.” He handed me $25. Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Flight Captain coming down the aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he walked. I hoped he was not looking for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the plane. When he got to my row, he stopped, smiled, held out his hand and said, “I want to shake your hand.” Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain’s hand. With a booming voice he said, “I was a soldier and I was a military pilot. Once, someone bought me a lunch. It was an act of kindness I never forgot.” I was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the passengers. Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs. A man who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine. He left another $25 in my palm. When we landed, I gathered my belongings and started to deplane. Waiting just inside the airplane door was a man who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word. Another $25! Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base. I walked over to them and handed them $75. “It will take you some time to reach the base. It will be about time for a sandwich. God Bless You.” Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow travelers. As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer for their safe return. These soldiers were giving their all for our country. I could only give them a couple of meals. It seemed so little. A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘citizens of Canada’ for an amount of ‘up to and including my life’. That is Honour, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

A generous Arnprior family Ken Scissons and his family have been well-known around Arnprior for years. This photograph of the family several decades ago was one of the many making up an Arnprior 150th anniversary album. Scissons is noteworthy for his good deeds, particularly in assisting those in need of a helping hands. The community has rallied around Scissons and his five tenants after a fire Dec. 15 destroyed a McGonigal Street house he owned next to his own residence in the back of Ken’s Kitchen. As of Thursday, more than $2,500 had been dropped off at the Arnprior Sears store in the mall for the cause and another $1,000-plus at Steve & Dennis Restaurant. As well as those two, several other area businesses are collecting for the victims right through this weekend.

Blessed be the honest people To the Editor: Thanks to a special angel who took my purse to the courtesy desk at the Metro store Dec. 13, Thursday. I would like to thank her personally. Hope she had a blessed Christmas.

It is wonderful to have honest people in our community. Sincerely and thankful. Gail Collins Arnprior

Continued from Page 8

The staff “are all nice but do not follow through.” Thus our table of mostly entrepreneurs was only able to get out only one recommendation and you know what it was. So I did not have high hopes for a coherent draft Strategic Plan if the other tables were as singular in purpose as ours. But thank you, Mr. Developer, for a valuable lesson besides a SLAPP (Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation). My expectations are low for lasting results from this strategic planning process. The oppressive nature of the status quo in a small town is difficult to overcome. In five years’ time, it is likely the Town will still be talking about the same dreams and concerns being talked about today, i.e. Town Centre, waterfront, infrastructure development, slow pace of Town Hall staff, and studies, hoopla

and hullabaloos, etc. Indeed the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOTs) that were talked about at the beginning of the strategic planning session will still be with us. The SWOTS are mostly unalterable: the 417 highway forces Arnprior to be a dormitory town thus competing with Carleton Place and other Valley communities for housing stock and additional debt-burdened younger Rurban Citiot ratepayers; investing in the under developed river fronts requires involvement of other levels of government; exploiting the rich heritage cultural tradition requires substantial investment with fleeting and low rates of return; as well as the various challenges that being part of Renfrew County imposes. It is not difficult to envisage that in five years’ time the views and talk in Town will still be about “roofs, roads,

recreation, retail and rivers” or “houses, highways, hockey, hawkers/hucksters, and heritage days.” Residents will cocoon themselves in their vinyl-cladded beige palaces fitted out with satellite TV, high speed Internet connections, soaker tubs and granite counter tops, enjoying their backyard BBQ, expecting everyone else to behave like them and dutifully ignoring what happens in municipal administration. The Town will remain a cultural cave where, apart from amateur sports, selfless contribution to community life remains weak and suspiciously looked upon. Finally the best a travelling diner can expect for a Sunday evening culinary experience will be to enjoy a Hoagie at a strip mall sports bar in the Prior because “they cannot screw it up.”

A dog of a different colour Michael Runtz Nature’s Way being more of a strawberryblond. It finally noticed me and headed back across the field. Coyotes are remarkable wild dogs. Unlike most carnivores, Coyotes in the past 100 years have expanded their North American range and their population continues to rise. This has occurred despite years of relentless persecution. Coyotes continue to receive no special protection in Ontario and in many other regions. This is a genuine injustice and the “Coyote culls” in which prizes are offered to participants should be banned. Likely ignorance and fear are behind much of the hatred shown towards this relatively innocuous member of the wild. I agree that when a

EMC lifestyle - Nature is full of surprises. They come when one stumbles across an unusual bird, such as the Ivory Gull, the most northern bird in the world that visited Arnprior recently. They occur when a Cooper’s Hawk suddenly explodes through the trees, homing in on a Mourning Dove beneath a backyard feeder. And they come when we encounter a rather common animal wearing a most unusual colour. Recently I was driving to Ottawa when my eye caught motion across the road. I looked and was surprised to see a Coyote wandering across the field towards me. I made a U-turn (safely, of course!) and parked on the opposite shoulder, rolling down my window as the car came to rest. As usual I had my camera sitting beside me and I grabbed it and stuck it out the window. The Coyote continued to work its way toward me, seemingly unaware of its admirer and the large lens pointing right at it. The first thing I noticed was the Coyote’s unusual colour. I have seen many of these wild dogs in Ontario and most were grey or dark grey with various amounts of darker patterns in their lovely coats. This one was very different,

behind the eight-ball in terms of meeting their ongoing housing costs. A single person on Ontario Works makes at most $606.00 per month for all expenses, including shelter. For a single parent family with one child, the amount from Ontario Works is $940. A quick review of local rentals in the last few weeks shows the lowest rent at $510 per month plus utilities for a one-bedroom second -floor apartment; most rentals are asking from $800 to over $1,000 per month with utilities extra. The Wellesley Institute, in a November 2012 report, states “the elimination of the CSUMB will have significant health impacts for people receiving social assistance, who are already among the most vulnerable in Ontario.” It points to safe and affordable housing as a key determinant of health. HOMES TO BE LOST

Without access to the CSUMB, those on social assistance may lose their homes, the institute warns. “Having access to this kind of immediate and flexible fund can often be the difference between getting a home and staying in a shelter or staying housed and losing one’s home,” it says. “It can also be critical support for people to leave abusive situations.” “Local homelessness and housing advocates such as ourselves are very concerned, particularly as the program ends in the middle of winter when heating costs are at their highest,” says Hunter. “We join with advocates in many communities across the province who are demonstrating against the cuts to CSUMB and speaking with local MPPs and provincial ministers to reverse this decision, or at least delay it for one year until municipal plans for homelessness and housing are put into place.” For further information, feel free to contact the Renfrew County Legal Clinic at 1-800267-5871.

EMC news - A change announced in the Ontario budget last June is about to take effect and will have serious consequences for those at risk of losing their housing. In the last budget, the Ontario government announced it was eliminating the Community Start-Up and Maintenance Benefit (CSUMB), which helps people receiving social assistance (Ontario Works and Ontario Disability benefits) to pay for large or unexpected housing-related costs, enabling them to become or to remain housed. As of Jan. 1, the CSUMB will end, and only half of its funding will be transferred to all municipalities as part of a consolidation of housing programs. Because of the formula used to calculate the amount transferred, it is likely that Renfrew County will be getting less than 50 per cent of the previous funding. Municipalities will decide how this additional funding will be spent, but will not be required to produce a housing and homelessness plan for approval by the Province until January of 2014 – a full year after receiving the funding. While there may well be merit in consolidating existing housing programs, the problem will be the significant reduction in funding, says a concerned Laura Hunter, a staff lawyer at the Renfrew County Legal Clinic. “The funding by the province will decrease, but the level of need in our County will not,” she says. “We meet people every week in our offices who need to access the CSUMB funding in order to stop eviction proceedings or to keep their hydro on. “The amounts that people receive on social assistance are so low, it is almost impossible to meet their shelter costs and still put food on the table.” Hunter says there is “no way of saving up for a last month’s rent deposit if you need to move out of an unsafe or unhygienic living space or of putting aside some dollars for those surprise expenses we all encounter.” She points out that one car repair or unexpected medical bill can quickly put families

Renfrew Catholic schools look back on year of achievements EMC news - A review of the past school year reveals many wonderful and noteworthy achievements throughout the Renfrew County Catholic District School District, says a news release from the school board. Academically, students continued to excel in the EQAO assessments, surpassing the provincial averages in seven of eight categories, says the release. Some of the many programs and initiatives to promote student success and wellness included: • A robust Summer School program that involved more than 300 students and the addition of the Jaguar Camp, allowing Grade 4 students to experience high school programs at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew; • A strong First Nations program, with added staff to aid in closing the gaps and improving scores; • Expanded Kindergarten to Grade 2 Literacy Initiative and Collaborative Inquiry for Learning In Math programs to develop deep thinking skills and problem solving; • Safe Schools co-ordinator to deal with student health, wellness, safety and retention issues.

As stewards who cherish the environment and all life in it, the school board has taken many steps to upgrade facilities to improve efficiency, reduce costs and ensure comfortable, safe and modern environments for students Among those are: • completion of construction of the new St. Francis of Assisi School; • retrofits of kindergarten classrooms in preparation for ELKP implementation; • renovation and modernization underway at Bishop Smith Catholic High School; • efficient lighting, heating, and windows in various schools across the board; • expanded wireless service, online homework support, electronic tools for learning in the classroom; • modifications to the board office to ensure accessibility. The school districtalso celebrated some special achievements: • Foster McIntyre, Grade 7 student of Our Lady of Fatima, and Randy Bissonnette, principal of Our Lady of Lourdes, were chosen to participate at the Minister of Education’s table in Queen’s Park

• John XXIII Catholic School of Arnprior was named a School of Distinction for ongoing achievements in math • A partnership agreement with the Petawawa Military Family Resource Centre to operate a daycare facility within the new St. Francis of Assisi School building. PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE

The school boards’s 2012–2017 strategic multi-year plan includes input from community partners and stakeholders, and interconnects with board and school improvement planning structures. The plan is once again based on three fundamental elements: Christian maturity, life-long learning, and stewardship and sustainability. The school board will model an active faith journey: • ensuring Catholicity is visible in our schools through symbols, prayers, and celebrations; • incorporating social justice, equity and inclusiveness, and unconditional love into board and school activities;

• celebrating Catholic education, promoting our accomplishments and contributions. The board will increase student achievement, close gaps and build public confidence: • Growing student achievement and engagement by integrating information technology and inquiry into teaching, and embedding a sense of belonging and well-being for all pupils • Providing specific strategies, opportunities and resources to nurture the giftedness of each individual • Using various methods (website, newsletter, social media) for effective, clear and transparent communications. The board will maximize resources and minimize footprint: • Living and promoting an environm entally friendly lifestyle, expanding the use of technology and recycling to reduce waste; • Increasing effectiveness and efficiency in order to direct more resources to our classrooms; • Implementing electronic processes and information technology to save physical resources.

Schreader, Michaud re-electd to guide Catholic school board But he adds that education is always in a state of change. The new strategic plan, Schreader says, will keep RCCDSB schools in step with those changes by expanding the Early Learning Kindergarten program, increasing high-technology in the classroom, strengthening special education programs, and updating infrastructure to improve school environments and energy efficiency. “Our Board is committed to responding to the needs of our students in a supportive, healthy and safe environment, nourished by unconditional love,” he said. Michaud, a board member since 2002, said he welcomed the opportunity to serve another term. “The Board has achieved a great deal to date. We can look forward to many more initiatives that will enhance communication and engagement in the coming school year”. In his acceptance speech, Schreader said he offered “my sincere commitment to work

diligently with you to provide the resources and support our students need to achieve their personal best within a safe school environment characterized by warmth, hospitality, good humour and joy. “We will work together to strengthen the success of our Catholic schools in Renfrew County through strong partnerships with our students, parents, parishes and the local community,” he said. “We will continue to offer our services with unconditional love, in a spirit of freedom, affir-

mation and celebration of our Catholic faith. JOHN XXIII ADDITION

In listing a number of initiatives, he noted that St. Joseph’s School in Arnprior has 40 students enrolled in year one of an Extended French Language pilot program and plans are in the works for the construction of an addition at John XXIII Catholic School in Arnprior to accommodate the Early Learning Kindergarten program in September 2013;

EMC news - The Renfrew County Catholic District School Board gave a resounding vote of confidence to chairman Bob Schreader and vice-chairman Bob Michaud at its final meeting of the year. The board voted to return them to another term of office. The unanimous vote underlines the solidarity within the board as it undertakes its new multi-year strategic plan. The 2012–2017 strategic plan, which was developed with the input of community organizations and stakeholders, focuses on key board priorities in the areas of Christian maturity, life-long learning, and stewardship and sustainability. Schreader, who has served as a trustee since 1989, says the school board’s goals haven’t changed over the years. It remains “to ensure we give the very best education we possibly can to each and every child within our system.”

Elementary teachers declare temporary truce John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

SHERRY HAAIMA/METROLAND

Renfrew County elementary teachers walked out Dec. 13 to protest Bill 115. Above, pickets in front of Walter Zadow elementary.

EMC news - What with three more snow days keeping most students at home on the last week of school before the Christmas holidays, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably a good thing public school elementary teachers have offered to put their rotating walkouts on hold. The Elementary Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Federation of Ontario (ETFO) announced last Friday that it will cease rotating strikes, and take no new strike action, if Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education minister does not impose collective agreements after Dec. 31 under Bill 115. The offer extends until a new premier is put in place at the Liberal Party convention in late January. The ETFO is hoping the new premier will revisit the controversial legislation that has teachers and other civil service union members so upset. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The appointment of a new premier will provide an opportunity to take a fresh look at the current collective bargaining impasse and find respectful solutions,â&#x20AC;? said ETFO president Sam Hammond at a media conference Dec. 21. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our proposal respects existing collective bargaining processes and the fundamental rights of our members and all working Ontarians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the minister decides to take precipitous action and trigger further disruption, this will aggravate the situation for parents, students, and our members,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Education Minister Laurel Broten and her government must recognize that Bill 115 is a dangerous piece of legislation. It threatens the very foundations of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s democratic values and institutions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is wrong, and the education sector has called the government to task for it with our job actions this fall.â&#x20AC;? Both public school elementary and secondary school teachers maintain Bill 115 gives the edu-

GET READY FOR OUR

BIGGEST

cation minister unprecedented powers to impose collective agreements on school boards and locals after Dec. 31 and prohibit legal strike action. However, there is nothing in the bill that requires her to exercise those powers. Provincial Education Minister Laurel Broten, was quick to respond. While she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t directly agree not to use Bill 115 to impose settlements, she did urge the ETFO to return to the bargaining table like the Catholic board teachers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started discussions with our partners in February â&#x20AC;&#x201C; almost a year ago,â&#x20AC;? she said in a prepared statement. Some unions decided to stay at the table to work toward solutions, while others made the choice to walk away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The agreement with Catholic teachers and the government is based on over 300 hours of negotiations. In total, the government spent hundreds of hours bargaining with teachers, education support staff and school trustees associations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After 10 months of negotiations and hundreds of hours at the table, we have seen agreements reached representing 55,000 teachers and over 4,000 support staff in the province. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition, we have seen almost 40 agreements reached at the local level. Negotiated agreements are possible and they are the preferred approach â&#x20AC;&#x153;By reaching negotiated local agreements that are ratified by teachers and support staff, we can see a return to peace in our English public schools and can re-focus our efforts on what matters most: success for every student. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the ETFO left the provincial discussion table after less than an hour of talks, we heard from them that they wanted to bargain locally. Unfortunately, they have not brought forward a single local agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I encourage all of our partners, including ETFO, to get back to that work at the local level. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where those discussions need to take place and there are still 10 more days for agreements to be reached.â&#x20AC;?

ontrac gives thanks ontrac Employment Resource Services paid tribute to Arnprior’s employers last Wednesday, Dec. 19. The employment resource centre hosted its annual festive open house and employer appreciation event that afternoon, bestowing eight employers with recognition certificates. Ontrac, established in the area in 2000, has been providing employment services to the community, initially under the direction of HRSDC and now part of Employment Ontario. Receiving thanks last Thursday were Canadian Tire’s Joe Mohr, Terry Wright of Budget Propane, Mike Bode of Bode’s Custom Cabinets, Barbara Kosman of Cosman-Dew Business Services, Patricia Glahs of CVTEL, and Iris Young of Island View Suites. Cheyanne Wells, employer specialist, was assisted by executive director Bert Morrow in handing out the awards. Not present at the event, but recipients of awards, were Shelley Mosseau of Leaps & Bounds Children’s Centre and Barry Baird of Krown Arnprior. SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND

Special Christmas card to a veteran EMC lifestyle - A Christmas card sent in 1943 by Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King to a Canadian prisoner of war is on display this holiday season at the Canadian War Museum. It’s a poignant reminder of the service and sacrifice of Canada’s veterans and a symbol of a nation’s gratitude and remembrance. The recipient was Arthur Kenneth Pifher from Paris, Ontario, who was captured at the battle of Hong Kong in 1941.

Pifher was 19 years old when he enlisted in August 1940. The next year, he was among the 1,975 Canadian troops sent to Hong Kong to defend the British colony. Pifher of the Royal Canadian Rifles was among those captured and sent to prison camps in Hong Kong and China. By the war’s end, nearly 300 of his Canadian comrades had died in captivity from malnutrition, disease, overwork and brutality. The card will be on display at the museum until Jan. 6.

More gold for Arnprior athletes at college rugby tournament EMC sports – Chanelle Fortin and Robyn Quade who where a key part of the highly successful Arnprior District High School girls rugby team over the last couple of years have struck gold again. This time they were playing for the Algonquin College Thunder women’s rugby team. It was Fortin’s rookie year playing for Algonquin and Quade’s second. Fortin’s speed made her a natural to play left wing and run the ball up, while Quade’s

leadership played out well as captain of the team. The Thunder crushed their opponents all through the regular season, rolling over Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) East Region opponents in six games by an average score of 64.5-0, before defeating the Seneca Sting 20-5 in the semi-finals. The conference final was held Nov 17 at Ottawa’s Twin Elm Rugby Park against the Humber Hawks, who matched the Thunder’s 7-0 record this

year. Humber had won the Ontario title the last two years. Algonquin put together a team last year for the first time and captured bronze. This year the Thunder really found out what they were made of. Spectators couldn’t believe their eyes, as the match was so tight the game went into triple overtime before ending 16-13 for Algonquin in front of a thunderous crowd. The OCAA gold medal went to Algonquin.

EMC news - Chris Coady of Arnprior tied for first for largest doe shot in the annual Gourley’s Variety and Gas Bar big buck and doe contest. Coady’s doe, at 138 pounds, was the same size as one shot by Darcy Norris from the Denbigh area. An increase in bear and coyote sightings resulted in a lack of deer population for many hunters. Nevertheless, the number of weigh-ins was similar to last year, dropping from 64 to 60. Registration was also down, by 13 per cent, from 356 to 309. But there were several positives in the annual event, too. “The weather was great, and the rut lined up well with the rifle hunt, as the majority of the bucks were harvested while in pursuit of a doe,” said organizer Keith Gourley. Registration fees also helped provide donations of $700 to Hospice Renfrew and $150 to the Renfrew Fish and Game Club. Winners in the two-week contest included Chris Mittag of Eganville for the biggest buck (an 11-point, 250-pound deer), Kevin Briscoe

of Renfrew for the rack with the most points (17), Tony Mask of Renfrew for oldest, successful hunter, and 13-year-olds Liam McHale of Douglas and Liam Forgie of Renfrew four youngest successful hunters. Mittag also had the heaviest buck in the Mill Valley big buck and doe contest. Coady, who hunted with the Colterman camp beside the old Dacre ski hill, was second in the biggest doe contest with a 141-pounder. Joe Messina of Windsor shot a 159-pound doe for first place. The youngest hunter was 12-year-old Darin Verch, who shot a six-point, 149-lb. buck. The oldest hunter was Phil Davies, 77, of Greater Madawaska. He shot a 96-lb. doe. Contest registration numbers reached 595, eclipsing last year’s record of 565. A total of 92 deer were weighed, compared to 100 last year. With wild apples down this year after the summer-long drought, hunters found many deer gravitating to the hardwood areas, where oak trees provided a plentiful crop of acorns, noted contest organizer John Limlaw. Organizers stressed that hunters’ registration fees made it possible to provide the wide variety of prizes and an $800 donation to Hospice Renfrew.

The Arnprior Packers will host Almonte in an important Eastern Junior B Hockey League game this Friday, Dec. 28. The Packers are trying to stay ahead of the Thunder for the final Valley Division playoff spot. The game starts at 8 p.m.

SHERRY HAAIMA/METROLAND

Interior design consultant Devon Sheehan sits in the kitchen of one of her favourite completed projects â&#x20AC;&#x201C; her sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Renfrew-area low-slung bungalow that was redone in a modern style. The site has also been a great way to connect with clients looking for her more traditional services. FAVOURITE PROJECTS

There are several projects she counts among her favourites, including a Burnstown Road farmhouse in which the family lived before moving to their current house in Renfrew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was my own client so

youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to do what you want with it to some degree,â&#x20AC;? she said. Limited only in budget, the couple gutted the home and started from scratch. The blank canvas was an exciting opportunity for the designer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because we were able to gut the whole thing I was able to do the floor plan from scratch,â&#x20AC;? said Sheehan. That gave her the ability to ensure the home had ev-

erything the growing family needed. Designed in a traditional style, the house will always have a special place in her heart. Another career highlight for Sheahan was a redo of her sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Renfrew-area lowslung bungalow. With quite a modern shell and design concept, the project was unlike many other more traditional jobs.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going quite modern was

really fun too,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of clients arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t up for going that modern.â&#x20AC;? Sheehan reminds potential clients that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available to provide as little or as much support as a client needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want people to know that someone can help them with something as simple as a floor plan or in choosing finishes. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be a full renovation,â&#x20AC;? she said. For information, visit www. dsheahandesign.ca. R0021831917

didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always know she was headed for this particular career but growing up, design and creativity were always interests of hers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always had an interest in fashion and design. And architecture - Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been really interested in that,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It all kinds of melts into one pot.â&#x20AC;? A unique aspect of Sheahanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service is her website and several online design packages that will assist people with their plans for interior updates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe spatial planning is the most important part of any design whether designing your kitchen or simply placing furniture within a space,â&#x20AC;? said Sheahan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have constructed this site with the hope that I can help people overcome their design dilemmas,â&#x20AC;? said Sheahan. The online option consists of five steps She said she has found the majority of clients requested the same services: kitchen layouts and furniture plans. Offering services online makes designing that much easier for clients, said Sheahan.

EMC business - If you have a design dilemma, interior design consultant Devon Sheahan wants to hear from you. The Renfrew native has been quietly working away for the last 10 years, gaining clients mostly via word of mouth. The work up until now has been mostly part-time as she focused on raising her two daughters, but as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting a bit older sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to make it a full-time gig and looking for clients who would benefit from her expertise. Sheahan graduated in 2002 from Algonquinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Advanced Interior Design Program and soon after realized residential design was her true passion. She has worked alongside other designers, been employed by a custom kitchen company and has done freelance design. Her completed projects include planning and designing of unfinished basements, new additions and entire home renovations. Originally a student in the business program, Sheahan

Fitness Depot: Dedicated to Your Fitness and Health by Brian Turner

As the old year ends and the new approaches, more than a few of us will take a look in the mirror and decide it’s time to shape up. Maybe we’ll join a gym, but many of us will look to purchase home exercise equipment as a more convenient, comfortable, and private alternative to fitness club membership. But where to turn? Which elliptical, treadmill, rower, or exercise bike to buy? It’s easy to get lost in the myriad of websites, media ads, and avalanches of flyers overflowing our mailboxes. It’s also very easy to choose the wrong piece of equipment, that no matter how often you use it or how well designed it is, won’t deliver the results you’re looking for. And of course there’s the risk of injury because you didn’t get the appropriate advice you needed before purchasing a piece of fitness equipment that your body or physical condition isn’t suited for. Fitness Depot has been providing solutions to all these problems and concerns for over 20 years in Ottawa and their long list of satisfied and physically fit clients provide strong testament to their customercentered way of doing business. First, all of the associates you’ll meet at either Fitness Depot location (499 Industrial Ave in the east or 255 Kanata Ave in the west) are experts on the products and accessories they offer. They have been specifically trained by North America’s major fitness equipment manufacturers and receive continual education and updates on new designs and features. They are all fulltime employees and were chosen because of their commitment to physical fitness and excellent customer service. Second, if you want to try any of Fitness Depot’s equipment or products before you buy, it’s as easy as riding a bike because they’re all set up in their comfortable and roomy facilities for demo purposes. There’s no guessing from looking at a picture on the box or at some video as to whether or not you’re choosing the right product. Fitness Depot’s staff also take the time to ask the right questions to make sure that what you buy is right for you and other members of your family who might use it, and for your home. There’s no use getting the perfect home gym system if it won’t fit in your family or exercise room. In fact in most cases the associate you first meet will be the one to guide you through choosing and purchasing the right equipment and accessories to accompanying the delivery truck to your home to ensure a done-right-the-first-time set-up and to make sure you’re completely comfortable with all the features and operations.

And since they’re a depot, they carry everything they offer in stock and can arrange most installations on a same-day basis. Why wait days or weeks when you want to start your new life now? Some us of will enter Fitness Depot for the first time after being gym or club members and will be pleasantly surprised to find the same reputable major brands that our fitness club uses. Fitness Depot’s equipment suppliers are very carefully chosen and only ship to specialty retailers. You don’t have to be a fitness veteran to recognize names like LifeFitness, Precor, or Octane just to name a few. And commercial gyms and clubs also purchase their equipment from Fitness Depot. So the same expert associates that local gyms rely on, are there to serve you as well. And they’re happy to handle special orders for those rare occasions when someone is looking for a hard to find item that isn’t normally stocked. More than a few of us have experienced (or know someone who has) the difficulty that can arise when a fitness machine requires service or repair. With purchases from some retailers, the only choice is to package it up and send it back. But Fitness Depot runs a complete service centre in Ottawa that’s as close as your computer mouse. And since they offer their own in-house extended service plans, affordable peace of mind comes along with professional technicians. Whether it’s a simple adjustment or minor repair, or part replacement, it’s all part of Fitness Depot’s A to Z white-glove customer service. For Ottawa’s truly largest selection of fitness equipment and gear at the guaranteed lowest prices, with service that’s as fit as a fiddle, there really is only one choice with two great locations: Fitness Depot. East end manager Paul Riley and west end’s Kevin DeForge and their very physical teams are on site and on track Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm, on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and on Sundays from noon to 5:00 pm. You can reach them by phone at 613-247-8888 (East) or 613-591-8988 (West). Their website at www.fitnessdepotottawa.com has full details and specs on everything they sell. Good quality home fitness equipment means a long term relationship that brings much more value than flashy offers on unknown brands. With Fitness Depot, nothing’s holding you back from a fit future.

DEREK DUNN/METROLAND

Willy, left, and his brother Tom Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourke show off the hay donated to the Fitzroy farm from an elk farmer near Edmonton. Willy said there is so little hay in Valley, thanks to the drought, that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making sure the tarp stays over it. He canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to lose any of the 32 bails he received.

Hay East shipment arrives at Fitzroy Harbour farm Alberta farmer pleased to be able to help return a decade-old favour Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It was a fine Christmas present they received at Harbour Hill Charolais farm this year. Willy Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourke, president of Fitzroy Beef Farmers, was among the lucky few to have his name drawn for a truckload â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 32 bails in all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of hay from out west. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christmas came early this year,â&#x20AC;? is what Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourke said when he got the call informing him that his remaining cows will make it through winter. There were 300 Ontario farmers who applied for relief, with 90 loads coming to the Valley. His brother Tom came over to the Newtown Road farmer from his nearby farm, outside Fitzroy Harbour, to check out the load sitting in a field near cows, horses and other animals that will benefit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This should be your good news

Christmas story of the season,â&#x20AC;? Tom said, laughing when his brother explained that a tarp was over the hay because it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;too valuable not to cover.â&#x20AC;? Valuable is right. Valley farmers normally pay about three cents a pound for hay. This year, if it can be found at all thanks to last summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought, hay is going for 12 cents. Although Harbour Hill is primarily a beef farm, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first cut of 2011 yielded 440 bails. Last summer it was down to 330. Second cutting went from 170 to 22. So, yes, he appreciates the additional bails, even if it meant he had to contribute to the truck driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gasoline. Like many Valley farmers caught in the drought line, a thin strip from up past Cobden through to West Carleton, the regular rains and timely September rains didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come last summer. North Gower is an example that fell outside the line, with milk

producers in that area getting by with timely rains. Here in Fitzroy, cracks formed in the ground that would have taken a month of rain to fill in. July saw twoand-a-quarter inches of rain; July saw less than an inch. It forced him to feed winter hay to cows in July. After going through all eight sections of his fields, the first still hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen re-growth. The upshot? He usually has 30 cows. Four were put down. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an easy thing for him. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent more than 30 rarifying his herdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s genes. Having to give that up is a tough decision to make, especially when others are doing the same causing a drop in price by 10 cents a pound. And yet it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take away from the joy the Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourke brothers found in getting hay sent all the way from Alberta. Hay East, as it is known, is about farmers such as Clint Landral

donating hay to eastern farmers devastated by the drought. It is in part about settling up a debt. Hay West took place exactly 10 years earlier, when drought ravaged the other side of Canada. There was never a doubt that farmers across this vast land want to help on another in times of crisis. The problem then, and now, has been the distance. But that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped them. Canada has been called a country that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work in theory, only in practice. Many observing this back-and-forth donating between farmers thousands of kilometres would agree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The farmers out west are returning the favour,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Eli ElChantiry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great thing to see people in Canada still cherish the support of one another.â&#x20AC;? Contacted at his elk farm about an hour from Edmonton, Landral saw it as a good news story about Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good for him. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad it got to him,â&#x20AC;? Landral said, who explained

they had a bumper crop this year and so he could afford to ship out seven loads, or 224 bails this year. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t far from his mind, either, that he benefitted from Hay West in 2002. It was about knowing what Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rourke and others are going through, and returning the favour. Asked why he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t simply ship the hay south where he could make a pretty penny, Landral cut off the question at the halfway point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Canadians. These people, they are my neighbours. They helped us out tremendously. And when you get people so destitute and they have nowhere to turn â&#x20AC;&#x201C; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re our neighbours, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care how far away.â&#x20AC;? Every Canadian is Landralâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighbour. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Rouke is pleased with the hayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quality too, saying hay from an elk farm is high in protein. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice the cows showing any preference. But it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come as a surprise down the road if Harbour Hill cows start cheering for the Oilers.

Saturday night house party a way of life for Mary EMC Lifestyle - What was left of the Christmas tree was dragged out to the back of the woodshed. Standing in the kitchen, in the farthest corner, away from the Findlay Oval, was not enough to save the sprigs of the Spruce tree, most of which had been swept up and fed into the ďŹ re box. The decorations, loops of silver rope, saved year after year, the clip-on candle holders, which always terriďŹ ed Mother, so sure was she the whole place would go up in smoke, and the few felt animals we attached to the branches, were ďŹ nally wrapped in issues of the Renfrew Mercury and packed away for another year. The house was back to normal, and a new year was beginning. It was time to get back to the Saturday night house parties. SOCIALIZING

BY MARY COOK

always amazed me. Enough food would be brought to feed half of Renfrew County. Sandwiches ďŹ lled 11 quart baskets, which had been lined with spanking clean ďŹ&#x201A;our bag tea towels. These were of the simplest kind ... roast pork and beef, and egg salad. Canned salmon was unheard of. Anyone who wanted to be real fancy, brought bologna, which was my very favourite. Slab cakes and molasses cookies were taken out to the summer kitchen to keep chilled and covered with more tea towels. TEA TIME

Before anyone arrived, Mother would have the big shiny kettle boiling and at least two white aluminum tea pots simmering with green tea on the back of the stove. Of course, there were no clothes closets, so the coats were piled on the nearest bed, and it always amazed me that no one went home wearing some elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coat. Around the kitchen stove, galoshes and rubber boots were kept warm for the trip home. At our house the baking table was moved into the parlour for euchre and another game was always going on around the old pine table in the kitchen. There was much pounding of ďŹ sts, loud laughing, and frivolity at both tables, and I often wondered if they took the game as seriously as I thought they did. And music ďŹ lled the house. Uncle Alec Thom would bring his ďŹ ddle, Mother would take her mouth organ out of its blue velvet box. Father would grab two spoons, one of the Beam boys would tune up his guitar, and

there was always someone ready to call for a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;squareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The youngest of us would be upstairs in a bedroom playing Parcheesi, or Jacks, and as the night wore on, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unusual for ďŹ ve or six of us to stretch out crossways on a bed and fall asleep. When the Saturday night house party was at a neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, and I was one of the ones bedded down, it was a mystery to me how I would wake up the next morning in my own bed! I would have no recollection of being carried out to the sleigh, or of being put into my bed. I would be wearing the same clothes I had worn that evening. The only thing missing would be my galoshes. So I often didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to get dressed for church the next morning. When the party was at our house, I always hoped there would be some cookies or slab cake left to be enjoyed on Sunday, but there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a crumb of lunch left! By Sunday morning, everything in the kitchen would be back to normal. Mother and Audrey would have washed the dishes, and the furniture would all be back in place. The parlour door would once again be closed, and a braided mat rolled up against it. There was no need to heat a room that was never used in the winter time except for the Saturday night house party. And so it went ... all winter long. As normal as going to church every Sunday, or going into Renfrew to peddle chickens and butter, the Saturday night house party was a way of life back in those Depression years. And the price was right too.

Plenty to celebrate

Seniors at Home offers variety of programs Liz Wall Seniors At Home

EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Care Coach para-transit is not the only program offered by the Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home. Far from it. Here are some of the others: Hot Meals on Wheels: Seniors at Home is proud to offer its newest program, Hot Meals on Wheels, which includes hot nutritious meals cooked fresh daily at The Grove and consists of soup, crackers, hot main course, dinner roll and dessert. The program is available to seniors 60 years of age or older, adults who are chronically ill, adults living with a disability, adults convalescing from surgery or illness, and adults undergoing medical treatments (no matter the age). Clients must reside within the Town of Arnprior and meals can be requested by individuals, family members, friends or any health care personnel. To ensure the service is available to clients in need, all applicants will be interviewed by Patti Jennings, program co-ordinator of ABMSHP. The questions are designed to determine a potential clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current ability to shop for groceries, safely prepare their own meals or have someone available to assist them with their daily meal needs. Hot meals are delivered to clients Monday to Friday between 11 a.m. and noon by dedicated volunteers of ABMSHP. Clients can order meals for any or all days Monday to Friday. Cost is $8 per meal. Special diets and allergies can be accommodated. Applicants who may not qualify for Hot Meals on Wheels may beneďŹ t from the Frozen Meal service also available from ABMSHP for clients within Arnprior and McNabBraeside.

In the summer time, most of the community activities centred around the church, but in the winter, socializing was done in the homes. I loved the Saturday night house parties. No formal invitations were necessary, and it was beyond me how anyone knew where the party was being held. My much older, and wiser, sister Audrey said she was sure Central would simply start ringing everyone who had a phone, and tell them where the next party was taking place. At that time in my life, I thought that was a perfect explanation. When the party was at our house, everything movable was shoved against the kitchen walls to make way for the square dancers. Of course, the house had to be cleaned from top to bottom too. Even the bedrooms upstairs had to be readied ... thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the youngest of us ended up. Neighbours started coming early in the evening. Horses and sleighs lined up in the yard. None had to be tied ... they seemed to know they were expected to stay put, which

St. Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s High School recognized with achievement award EMC news - St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic High School in Renfrew is one of 27 Ontario schools to be recognized by the Ministry of Education for its work to advance student achievement. The Ministry of Educationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) presented the Dr. Bette M. Stephenson Recognition of Achievement Award to the Renfrew schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principal, Brennan Trainor, at a Nov. 15 ceremony in Toronto. The award recognizes those elementary and secondary schools that make effective use of EQAO assessment data and evidence from other sources to enhance and support student achievement. The award, which was established by the EQAO board of directors in 2009, also pays tribute to Dr. Stephenson, a founding member of the EQAO board and the Ontario minister for both education and colleges and universities from 1978-85. St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was recognized specifically for its success in Grade 9 mathematics and was profiled in the EQAOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2012 Provincial School Reports. A case study posted on the EQAO website describes how St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successfully uses data from the EQAO assessment tests to improve student achievement in mathematics. EQAO results are used at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to direct teaching practices and respond to specific student needs. SMOOTH TRANSITION

Grade 8 and 9 teachers also collaborate to smooth the transition between grades for students, and gear course work to EQAO test questions, by using similar language and curriculum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, we work hard to help our students succeed and to learn to the best of their abilities,â&#x20AC;? says principal Trainor, who attended the awards ceremony with two math teachers, Stacey McGregor and Michael McMahon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very proud of our studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; achievements, and we will continue to use data from EQAO, our board and the classroom as critical teaching tools.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is gratifying to see St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being recognized by the Ministry of Education,â&#x20AC;? says Jaimie Perry, superintendent of education with the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board. He and board chair Bob Schreader also attended the Nov. 15 ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Schools throughout our board have been working hard to increase our studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; EQAO results with very encouraging results. Last year, our students surpassed provincial averages in both literacy and numeracy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This award for St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is further recognition of our efforts to help our students achieve their personal best.â&#x20AC;? Other eastern Ontario schools receiving the Recognition of Achievement were Centennial Secondary School (Hastings and Prince Edwards District School Board), Hawkesburyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ă&#x2030;cole catholique Paul VI and St. Emily Catholic School (Ottawa Catholic District School Board).

Plaintree among companies making contacts at Centrallia EMC business - Ten representatives of area manufacturers, including Plaintree of Arnprior,and a delegation from the County of Renfrew, took part in a unique business networking and match-making trade show in Winnipeg this fall. Centrallia 2012 featured a sophisticated program that enabled participating businesses, prior to arrival at the show, to each arrange 14 one-on-one meetings with prospective customers or business allies. It provided local businesses with pre-qualified leads in the target business sectors in which they were most interested, and optimized their investment of time and money. This is a significant value to owners and operators of small-and medium-sized businesses with limited time and financial resources, noted organizers of the event. Among those taking part were County Warden Bob Sweet and economic development manager Alastair Baird, as well as representatives from the Pembroke and Area Airport Commission, Over the course of two days and three evenings, the participants met with other business people from Canada and 31 other countries representing mining, automotive, aerospace, airport services, motor coach and public transit, agri-business, environmental, energy, forestry, shipping and logistics, metal casting and machining, injection molding, heavy equip-

ment, hospitality, construction, and international trade. Sean Watson of Spotton Corporation, also representing the Plaintree Group of Companies from Arnprior (Triodetic, Arnprior Fire Truck, Plaintree Systems, Hypernetics), found that “Centrallia allowed us to connect with important customers from the Canadian mining sector and many potential international customers.” “I expect to receive four or five Request for Quotations (RFQ) from people I have met here,” said Rob Pearson of ETM Industries in Renfrew. “That is an incredible result from just a few days of meetings. We also created many other new relationships, which may yield results in the next year or so.” Sweet and Baird accompanied the 10 local business representatives in partnership with Renfrew County Community Futures Development Corporation (RCCFDC). They managed a booth in the trade show with RCCFDC, where they promoted the County of Renfrew and represented all the manufacturers and industrial service companies from the County. The county team also arranged pre-qualified appointments with companies with potential investment interests in the county and with representatives of R&D organizations from Manitoba working with agricultural and forestry biomaterials and food products.

EMC news - The average value of farmland in Ontario increased by 16.3 per cent during the first half of 2012, according to a new Farm Credit Canada (FCC) Farmland Values Report. It is the highest average increase across Canada and is in line with property assessment figures being mailed out this fall by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation. The latest increase, the highest since 1996, is part of a trend that shows farmland values have been rising in the province since 1993. In the two previous six-month reporting periods, farmland values increased by 7.2 and 6.6 per cent. “High-quality farmland suitable for specialty crops continued to be in strong demand,” says FCC senior vice-president Michael Hoffort. “Consolidation of farms in some provinces is an ongoing trend as producers seek to increase their land base and take advantage of efficiencies.” Recent increases in farmland values have been mostly driven by two factors: continued high crop receipts, particularly for soybeans and corn, and low interest rates. Some areas of the country are witnessing a market where multiple bids are being placed on the same property, which sets the stage for a seller’s market. FCC will monitor the impact of the summer’s drought in Eastern Canada in future reports, as it may affect farmland values. For more information, visit www.fcc.ca.

EMC lifestyle – This tasty stew highlights all the good root vegetables still available in our stores and a Guinness type of beer. Lamb shanks are easy to use and delicious; if not available, use thick shoulder chops. It’s better if made a day or two ahead. Preparation Time: 30 minutes Cooking Time: three hours Servings: Eight

To my husband Bill, my family, my sons-in-law, grandchildren and great grandchildren for the love and attention given to me this year. I have been most unfortunate as my diabetes has progressed into renal failure, I now had to leave my home and move into a living establishment where I now live so I can have dialysis in Renfrew twice a week. I wish to thank a special thanks to Anita Schubrink who cooks meals for Bill. She has certainly been a God-send for Bill and I. May God bless each and everyone of you.

DEATH NOTICE

HYLAND, Shirley In loving memory of our mom and Nanny Shirley Hyland who passed away Dec. 28, 2010. There is a precious flower, Still blooming in our hearts, That holds so many memories, We know not where to start. The memories of our mother, Of days both good and bad, Of things that made us happy, And things that made us sad. There was always a special someone, To brighten up our day, And make our life worth living, In a sweet and special way, We wish that we had told her, Just what she meant to us, We did not know without her, How lonely life would be. She smiled through every heartache, And laughed away our tears, Oh how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown to love her, Throughout those many years. And though we live without her, There will never be another, To replace our precious flower, Our one and only mother.

It’s hard to believe a year has passed and you won’t be walking through our doors. Saddened by days we can no longer share with you; our hearts are heavy and tears still fall. We cherish the love and memories you gave us and hold them close in our hearts. Your spirit will be forever with us. We shall celebrate your life. The circle of love is not broken.

The night you left Snow was falling, soft and beautiful; And the wind was blowing, gentle yet strong. Just like you, soft and beautiful. Just like you, gentle yet strong. The night you left Jesus was waiting, loving and tender; And He welcomed you home, peaceful and at rest. Just like you, loving and tender. Just like you, peaceful and at rest. -CJR

A million times we needed you, A million times we cried, If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still.... In our hearts you hold a special place, That no one could ever fill. It broke our hearts to loose you, But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home.

East Region OPP conducting satisfaction survey in January retained by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services. The information is treated confidentially and the names, telephone numbers, and addresses of those surveyed will not be included in the survey results provided to the OPP. Once the survey is complete, the results will be used in the OPP Business Plan and Annual Report. The information will be useful in helping the OPP set out goals and objectives to improve on the services it delivers to communities throughout Ontario. These surveys are done throughout the province on a rolling three-year schedule. The East Region detachment surveys will start in early or mid-January and are expected to be completed by March 15. The OPP thanks those who participate in the Community Satisfaction Survey and who take the time to help the OPP in its vision of ‘Safe Communities … A Secure Ontario’.

R0011818516_1220

EMC new - A Community Satisfaction Survey is scheduled to start in January in the Ontario Provincial Police’s East Region to solicit public opinions about the services OPP detachments deliver to communities throughout the region. The Community Satisfaction Survey is a telephone survey that randomly selects members of the public 16 years or older who live in Ontario. The survey takes about five to seven minutes to complete and is strictly voluntary. Those contacted and willing to participate are asked about issues such as community security, perceptions of crime and youth issues in the community, OPP presence in the community, service delivery and even how the OPP investigates crime and enforces the law. The information provided by those surveyed is being collected by a research consultant, R.A. Malatest & Associates, which has been

EMC news - Ottawa police are warning Valley residents of a letter scam. The mystery shopper fraud targets residents by sending them a letter containing a cheque from a well-known bank. The cheque is invalid and by the time the scam is realized, the recipient is held responsible for the outstanding funds. “The letter encourages the recipient to participate in a mystery shopper opportunity in return for cash,” said the police in a release. “The recipient is asked to cash the cheque and transfer a portion of it to another account – (the) account number provided by the company.” If a person follows the instructions, it makes them an accessory to the offence. The victim is encouraged to keep the remaining portion of the cheque as payment “for acting as a mystery shopper assessing the customer service received at the bank,” said police. At least two people in the Kanata area have reported the scam, said Const. Lori Fahey of the Kanata and Stittsville community police centre. Fahey said people can report fraudulent letters to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre by calling 1-888-495-8501. “Be cautious of all unsolicited correspondence and sales,” she said. If a person has suffered a financial loss, then they are asked to file a report with police by calling 613-236-1222, ext. 7300. “Call it in,” Fahey said, adding sending an email to an officer isn’t the same as filing a report. Kanata North Coun. Marianne Wilkinson discussed the problem at her ward council meeting on Nov. 26. A resident reported receiving one of the letters.

She said she and her husband contacted the bank listed on the cheque and were told it was a scam. “(The police) have had several complaints about it,” said Wilkinson. “If something seems to good to be true, it is too good to be true.” VIRUS

Fahey said she’s received complaints of another scam involving Internet providers, computer programs and virus detection. A caller pretending to be from a wellknown company with a call centre based in Asia or India will call people and tell them a virus has been detected on their computer. The caller asks the target to go to a website where they can download anti-virus protection software for $49 and asks for the target’s credit card information over the phone or through the website. “They’ve got your money and you don’t get anything,” said Fahey. “It’s very difficult to trace it.” She said it’s important to research all companies before doing business. “Do not provide personal information over the phone,” said Fahey. AGGRESSIVE

Fahey added there have been reports of insistent hot water tank rental representatives going door-to-door. “People are finding them very aggressive,” she said. “If you ask them to leave and they don’t, give us a call.” It can be intimidating to have a person like that at the door, but, “your front door is yours so feel free to close it to unwanted solicitation,” said Fahey. To report aggressive sales people who will not leave, call 613-230-6211.

New legal age ID comes into effect Jan. 1 EMC news - Ontario is making it easier to identify when someone is of legal age when buying alcohol or tobacco. Beginning Jan. 1, a new identifier on Ontario driver’s licences and photo cards will clearly show when card holders turn 19. The identifier will read “age 19” followed

by the exact date the card holder turns 19, all in bold letters. It will be located near the bottom of the card, beside the date of birth. Helping prevent youth from smoking and drinking is part of the provincial government’s plan to keep families safe and healthy, at home and on the road.
