We have plenty of news from Arnprior council this week, including its stance on the Arnprior-opoly game – Pages 2, 3, 4, 5, 15

EMC News – Shock and dismay have gripped Arnprior’s Catholic community after last week’s revelation that a long-time Saint John Chrysostom priest has been charged with sexually assaulting pre-teen boys. Daniel Miller is charged with three counts of gross indecency and three counts of indecent assault male. The OPP’s Renfrew County Crime Unit arrested and charged “Father Dan� on Feb. 29 in Pembroke. The alleged offences occurred between 1970 and 1980. Miller, 67, was a priest in Arnprior from 1976 to 1996. However, OPP say none of the three complainants, including an adult male, are from Arnprior. That is a relief to the many who were baptized, went to school at St. Joseph and John XXIII schools, attended confession, were married and commemorated other significant moments under Miller’s guidance.

Arnprior schools rank among best McNab-Braeside to take STAFF

EMC News - John XXIII has done it again. The Arnprior school scored a second perfect 10 in three years in the Fraser Institute’s Grade 3 and 6 province-wide rankings announced last week. John XXIII, which also scored 10 in the 2009 rankings, finished 12th in the entire province for its academic performance. Its highest ranking were for math marks for Grade 3 and Grade 6. The school has averaged 9.6 in the rankings in the past five years. Renfrew County’s second-ranked school for 2010-11 was St. Joseph’s Catholic School Arnprior. Its 9.5 rating scored 39th among the province’s 2,283 elementary schools. St. Joseph’s principal Mary Lise Rowat said the school is “very proud� of John XXIII and its 10 out of 10, as well as being delighted with its own ranking, “down just a smidge� from its first-place achievement last year. In Renfrew County, Our Lady of Fatima in Renfrew was next, at 44th overall, with a score of 9.4 for 2010-11. OLF had the same rating in 2009-10. Petawawa’s Our Lady of Sorrows was fourth in Renfrew County and St. Michael’s of Doug-

las fifth, with respective ratings of 8.5 and 7.9. Among the county’s public schools, T.W. Morison of Deep River was top ranked at 7.8, for 288th province-wide. Next were Rockwood Public School of Pembroke, Cobden Public School and McNab Public School with respective 2010-11 ratings of 7.1, 6.5 and 6.4. McNab’s mark was up over last year. The ratings for Walter Zadow of Arnprior and St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School of Renfrew were both 5.6. A.J Charbonneau came in at 5.5. The Fraser Institute maintains its school rankings, based on 2010-11 province-wide test results, can assist parents in choosing a school. The ratings also encourage educators and parents seeking to improve Ontario schools, says the Institute. However, some educators reject the relevance of the rankings, saying the Conservative think-tank does not taken into account many factors that could skew the results.

McNab-Braeside council will give township residents at least a couple of chances to scrutinize the proposed agreements with Arnprior that could significantly increase their taxes. At its meeting Tuesday, council officially received reports from Arnprior with its proposals for what the township should pay for its residents using the town’s recreational programs and facilities and the Arnprior Public Library. Town council has crunched the numbers and has concluded that McNab-Braeside should be paying much more for using such Arnprior facilities as the Nick Smith Centre arena and pool. Predicting there will be a great deal of interest in the issue, McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell recommended council host a couple of public meetings, probably in April, to explain the proposed agreements. Council also agreed it would begin its deliberations on the Arnprior proposals at its first special township budget meeting Wednesday, April 4 at 9 a.m. in council chambers. That will ensure there will be full council participation, as Coun. Aldene Styles is away until later this month. See ‘ISSUE’ Page 2

Town council approves boost in several fees, charges DEREK DUNN

derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC News – Arnprior council has formalized its decision to increase most user fees and charges by five per cent this year. Among those changes in effect now are: • Landfill tipping fees for car or minivan: from $9.50 to $10; • Tires from passenger, large truck and others (no rim): from $5.75 to zero; • Water rates commodity charge for the first

455 cubic metres per month per cubic metre: from $1.27 to $1.42; • Wastewater rates (following water rates calculation): from $1.25 to $1.30; • Museum entrance fee: from $3 to $3.50; • Photocopy of archived picture or document from museum: from $20 to $25; • Marriage licence, resident: from $110 to $125; • Death registrations, or burial licence: from $10 to $15;

• Refreshment vehicles and canteens licence: from $400 to $425; • Fire inspection letter of order: from $25 to $50; • Development agreements: from $1,000 to $1,100; Some charges that aren’t changing include sewer charges, pet fees, and equipment charges. At the Feb. 27 council meeting, Reeve Walter Stack of the finance committee and Coun.

Mark Willmer of the parks and recreation committee said it was unfortunate the committees and museum board didn’t get a chance to review and comment on the changes before budget talks. That was the practice in the past, treasurer and acting CAO David Pollard said, adding he hopes to get back to the routine next budget season. This year’s budget process fell victim to the lack of a full-time CAO and new software programs for staff.

Diocese ‘co-operating fully’ with police

Issue ‘sensitive’, mayor says Continued from front Campbell asked that the notice of the April 4 meeting, which is open to the public, also alert ratepayers that council will be discussing the agreements. “We have to make it clear we’re going to discuss the agreements as it is a sensitive issue,” she said. She anticipates council coming to a consensus on the issue, so it can present a joint position at the public meetings. However, “it won’t be a quick or easy thing to do,” she cautioned. The issue will also be discussed at the March 14 recreation committee meeting. Council also scheduled a second budget meeting for Thursday, April 5 at 9 a.m. in council chambers.

Continued from front Several were contacted for comment, but declined comment for various reasons: either they don’t believe the charges, saying it is a vicious smear campaign, or they feel too angry and betrayed, along with a litany of other reasons. Comments on a Facebook post include: • “I’d never have imagined that allegations like these would surface against the Father Miller I knew;” • “This will be devastating for many people;” • “A man that I looked up to as a kid and now this;” • “Whether it’s true or not, how does he recover from the allegations;” • “You can pray that justice is served and that the (alleged) victims recover from the life-changing impact this would have on them;” • “He came to my family’s house many times for dinner, still can’t believe;” • “Father Miller was a regular at my husband’s house.

someone else and someone else’s problem.” Two other Pembroke Diocese priests in recent years were found guilty of sexual assault against children. Bernard Prince was first charged in October 2005 in what would eventually become 14 charges of buggery, indecent assault and gross indecency. Prince lived in a number of Ottawa Valley communities, including Arnprior, before his retirement in 2004. Robert Borne was charged in 2009 with two counts each of gross indecency, indecent assault and breach of trust in relation to three victims. He is a Pembroke native. Miller’s last known address, according to OPP, was Pembroke. He was released from custody on a promise to appear and officer-in-charge undertaking. He is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Renfrew on March 28. The Pembroke Diocese bishop, Most Reverend Michael Mulhall, had parishioner Bruce Pappin field media and congregation calls on the latest pedophilia allegations to rock the Catholic Church. Pappin said the church is in full co-operation with police, and is praying for truth in the matter. “It shakes everybody. It’s really unfortunate,” Pappin said, adding there is little to say before a court determines guilt or innocence. Asked if the diocese was aware of widespread child abuse by two or more priests in the Pembroke area, Pappin said the cases are very different. “The common denominator is that they have the same employer and they (Prince and Borne) were both priests,” he said. “They were very, very different cases from each other.” He wouldn’t comment if there is a link between a vow of celibacy and sexual violence. “That’s way beyond my mandate,” he said. “You’d have to talk to Rome about that.” Pappin reiterated that the church is providing “full documentation” to investigators, who continue to gather evidence. It is also offering to pay counselling costs to victims and anyone with a reasonable allegation. He said complainants didn’t come forward to police for many years, then added: “The diocese has the responsibility to respect the wishes of victims. If they do not want to press those charges …,” his sentence trailed off. Pappin said the church’s representatives, the priests, are under tremendous pressure during such times. “The priests have it harder than anyone,” he said. “They are the public face of the church and it’s very difficult on them.” Anyone with information about the Miller investigation is asked to contact Renfrew County OPP Crime Unit at 1-888310-1122.

Fire Department shares spring safety tips EMC Lifestyle - As spring time approaches, so do new seasonal hazards. The McNab-Braeside Fire Department reminds all area residents to be aware of the safety challenges the changing of the seasons brings. “A simple, life-saving habit you can get into twice a year is to change the batteries in your smoke alarms when you change your clocks,” says fire chief Ken Walton. “This Saturday, we move the clocks forward one hour and doing so can be a reminder to replace old batteries out for new ones and to

confirm that your smoke alarm units are operating properly. “Smoke alarms are your first line of defence in the event of a fire. It is that early detection that can give you the time to escape safely,” he added. With rising temperatures and the snow starting to melt, residents are also reminded to be safe around lakes, rivers and waterways in the area. Spring runoff from rain and melting snow can result in swift water conditions and unstable ice surfaces that were recently used for

recreational purposes. River currents from the spring thaw can quickly change ice thickness over night or between different parts of the river. As the water levels on area bodies of water start to change, ice around shorelines will deteriorate quickly, warns the fire department. Parents are reminded to keep a close eye on small children when playing in or around any body of water. For more information on fire prevention and public safety, contact the McNab-Braeside Fire Department at 613-623-5756.

Arnprior siren to sound Saturday EMC Lifestyle - At about 6 p.m. this Saturday, March 10, a test of the Arnprior emergency siren will be conducted. The emergency siren is tested in spring and fall every year, around the time clocks are changed. The Arnprior fire department makes use of siren tests to serve as a reminder for all residents and landlords of rental buildings to test residential smoke alarms and replace batteries as needed.

Town makes speed sign, paving decisions DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC News – An electronic speed sign will soon measure driving habits around town. Arnprior town staff told the public works advisory committee at the March 5 meeting that it will purchase the $2,800 piece of equipment and set it up along roads considered most problematic. According to the committee chair, Coun. Ted Strike, that means the speed sign will be tracking vehicles heading to the Nick Smith Centre along James Street, and those on Jack Crescent near Arnprior Chrysler and the Northern Credit Union. “Everybody perceives speed to be different than it actually is,” Strike said. “(Speed signs) work. They really slow traffic down. It’s a good thing to try and bring it to (drivers’) attention.” The data collected from the signs will also let staff know which roads are busiest, thereby bumping them up higher on the repaving list. It will also help inform staff on which roads need more snowplowing and sanding. ROADS TO PAVE

The committee also decided which roads it wants to recommend to council for repaving this summer. Following budget talks, the committee learned it had only $75,000 to spend on repaving. However, that doesn’t include the repaving of James Street. Strike joked that the “natural speed humps” on roads such as James, which is crumbling and full of potholes, get less appreciation than the unnatural speed bumps built on other roads.

James Street made the list of roads council approved for repaving outside the $75,000 budget. But that is small comfort to Strike and other committee members. “There really isn’t any major roadwork except for James Street,” he said. Committee member David Coreau asked about Tierney and Landrigan streets, specifically why it is taking so long to have them done. Public works director Janet Collins said the pipes underground need to be replaced along Tierney, upping the cost considerably. The same is expected for Landrigan, which got a $50,000 study approved for this year. She added that provincial requirements means that doing any road in the future will likely take two years to complete. “I thought it was going to be done, but here it’s just at the design stage,” Coreau said. As for the other roads that made the short list for repaving this summer, staff suggested not doing Atkinson Street (from Russell North to Daniel North streets) and McGonigal West Street (from Daniel North to John North streets). Both are suspected to need pipes replaced. Still, Atkinson will have three significant portions cut out and hot patched, and the drainage issue will be fixed. Those routes that will be resurfaced this summer include: Addie Street (from Mima to Atkinson streets); Mima (from Addie Street to the end of the railroad tracks); Russell South Street (from William East to James streets); and Thomas North Street (from Addie Street to the end of the railroad tracks). The total comes to $77,800, but Collins said if need be the money can come from other areas of her department.

Town expresses highway rerouting concerns Cemetery bylaw updating discussed DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC News - Highway 417 has potential to bottleneck through Arnprior as it is, leading emergency protection leaders to worry that if it has to close for any reason drivers might not know how to detour their way through the downtown area. A committee of officials from various levels of government will be struck to figure out signage and other necessary measures to deter confusion and improve safety in times the highway is closed. As for manpower: Arnprior firefighters are not trained to direct traffic; but county staff are in the town of Renfrew, which would cause a delay in setting up any rerouting.

Fire chief John Okum told council that Daniel Street will likely not be part of rerouting given the current training limitations. “The Arnprior volunteer fire department does not have resources, training or the authority to perform traffic control,” reads Okum’s report to council. “Public works noted that roads fall under the jurisdiction of County of Renfrew. The time it would take either county roads department or MTO (Ministry of Transportation) staff to be dispatched, obtain proper signage, and get to Arnprior would be far too late following a highway closure. OPP initial resources may also be limited.” Elgin Street and Madawaska Boulevard, along with Old Highway 17 will likely play a part in any detour.

THE TOWNSHIP OF LANARK HIGHLANDS

EMC News - Arnprior’s dated cemetery bylaw needs to be “significantly” updated, the town’s public works director Janet Collins told the public works advisory committee on Monday. Both the Albert Street (which is almost full) and Malloch Road cemeteries sell plots of a specific size, not as most updated cemeteries do, which is by the number of graves. A few years ago Collins brought to council a recommendation to charge clients based on location. She suggests the committee bring back the idea of having one price for Arnprior residents, despite Malloch’s location outside town, another for McNabBraeside residents, and a third for others.

MUNICIPAL MATTERS

613-259-2398 or 1-800-239-4695 R0011295545/0301

Municipalities pay for upkeep of cemeteries in their area, meaning outside taxpayers aren’t responsible for grass-cutting and other maintenance costs. Those costs continue after a cemetery is full. Collins said as cemeteries in Ottawa fill, people from there look to Arnprior and elsewhere for burial services. Trouble is, she said, they might not have the deep connection to the area that people in Arnprior and McNab-Braeside do. Prices in Ottawa are also significantly higher than in Arnprior. “I think it’s a fair way of going,” Coun. Ted Strike said. He is chair of the advisory committee. Council must agree for the change to take place.

Organizers float ideas for River Drive, McNab Days SHERRY HAAIMA Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC News - McNab Days may be months away, but organizers are well on their way to getting everything in order for the late June/early July community event. An organizational meeting at the Braeside RA Centre and pre-dinner hosted by Mayor Mary Campbell Feb. 23 was well-attended and went a long way towards getting the ball rolling on McNab Days. The community festival serves several purposes, says Campbell, including fostering pride in the township and raising awareness of all it has to offer – rural communities, businesses, recreation facilities and heritage. The McNab Days festivities also support local businesses and organizations, foster growth and garner support from other levels of government. The Thursday, Feb. 23 launch focused on the Saturday, June 23 Braeside River Drive event at Red Pine Bay. The event will once again feature the Alligator Boat and a Bristol-to-Braeside flotilla that involves individuals from both McNab-Braeside and neighbours across the Ottawa River. The River Drive will span two days this year, with the Sunday Stretch and a possible Tartan Run planned for June 24.

Photo by Sherry Haaima Guests included chair of the Quebec contingent Tom Healey, Barbara and Peter Haughton of the Norway Bay Lumber Museum, and Dave Lemkay of the Canadian Forestry Association and Renfrew Industrial Commission. Among the proposed highlights of the event is an appearance of the Vintage Wings’ float plane, the Beaver. The Alligator Boat, the steam-powered amphibious warping tug featured at last year’s River Drive, will be a part of the event once again. Co-chairs Heather Lang and Neil Masson will join McNab-Braeside recreation director Geoff Patterson in co-ordinating the event.

Campbell praised the efforts of past chair Dan Smith and said he will be helping this year’s organizers prepare for the event. Braeside United Church is celebrating its anniversary this year and organizers are looking to host celebrations, probably a church supper, in conjunction with the River Drive. The township has applied for a Celebrate Ontario grant and is hopeful funding will help. Ontario Power Generation will provide sponsorship support again this year. EVENTS

This year’s McNab Days

included a Calling of the Clans Ceilidh at Waba Cottage Museum and euchre in White Lake on Friday, June 22 in the evening. Saturday, June 23 is the Braeside River Drive, which includes the flotilla, music stage, rivercraft display and a barbecue. Planned events for Sunday include the Sunday Stretch by the River and other healthy activities co-ordinated by Renfrew County Paramedics and the Ottawa Heart Institute. Also part of McNab Days, on Saturday, June 30, the Environmental Rangers’ research project on the Braeside Ridge will be launched. Canada Day celebrations are planned in Braeside July 1.

OPINION

Your Community Newspaper

Rural children need protecting, too Renfrew County often seems protected from many of the atrocities experienced in Canada’s urban areas. But we’re not exactly totally isolated from the slings and arrows of the wrong treatment of children. The present high-profile trial in London, Ont., of Michael Rafferty, for the killing of eight-year-old Victoria ‘Tori’ Stafford, is more than enough reminder that bad things don’t happen to children only in big cities. The public is rightfully angry to see that an 8-year-old resident of Woodstock was abducted, sexually assaulted and suffered hammer hits to the head before dying. Such unspeakable details will continue to be on display for up to three months, as justice is sought.

Meanwhile, the trial helps remind us of what we can do to protect all the children in our communities. Because all it takes is one person – perhaps a pedophile, of which there are some in Renfrew County – to change a child’s history forever. But that doesn’t mean smothering and over-protective parental philosophies must persist. It’s all right to talk to strangers, but children need to know what the boundaries are. Boundaries include the use of passwords before picking up children, walking home from school with a buddy, locking doors to schools so visitors are required to ring for entry, and encouraging students to identify visitors with whom they’re not familiar. Safe-school policies have helped protect county schools in ways they weren’t less than

a decade ago. One used to be able to just pop into school to see little Johnny or Jill, but that’s not so easy now. And that’s OK. Just like it’s OK to make sure the person waiting in the parking lot comes to the school to be properly identified as the children’s intended keeper. Just as notes need to be put in students’ agendas to remind teachers and other staff that a certain person is picking up the student at day’s end. Just as children need to be educated on what to show, and not to show, when communicating on social media with their friends through photos or written communication. Just as passwords need to be known by little kids and their guardians, but not by the little

boys’ or girls’ friends. Just as passwords get changed if they’re leaked to those who shouldn’t have that information. Also, do what good neighbours do when seeing a stranger offering a ride or company to youngsters. Not so long ago, a local reporter, just north of Renfrew, pulled his car over to the curb to talk to some youngsters about a newspaper story he was working on. Within the minute, the school principal had received a phone call from a neighbour, jumped in his car, and dashed down the road to see if the kids were in trouble. “Oh, it’s only you,� said the principal, relieved to see that the students were still safe and sound.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Beachfront no place for a dog park To the Editor: So if I have this right, dog owners take their dogs on the ice in the winter and defecate on the ice, which melts in the spring and goes into our drinking water. Then some misguided suggestion deems that a beachfront park is the ideal location for a dog park. One of the tourism highlights for Arnprior is the beautiful parks. Beachfronts are scarce in other cities; why would we like to turn ours into a dog haven. We care more about dogs

than the children who play in these parks? Of course, the dog owners will indicate that they pick up after their dogs. I can assure you, as someone who walks in these areas daily, some do, others do not, pick up after their dogs. How about you use the contaminated property already fenced in on Daniel Street for a dog park. Please feel free to print the other view on this story. Elwood Johnston Arnprior

Rural Ontario immigration’s toothache To the Editor: When I read people saying: “we need more‌â€?, “something has to be done‌â€? or “we need to do something,â€? it is a call to turn to the next page. However, in the case of your editorial of Feb. 23, “Rural Canada needs more immigrants, in face of aging population,â€? I read the whole thing. Back in the nineties, when I still watched TV, I saw a “one-of-a-kindâ€? TV commercial depicting a number of ethnic, heavily accented businesspeople, with an unaccented voiceover inviting Canadians to support their initiatives and brave ventures. The summary statement was saying: “If they fail, we all fail!â€? This was a government ad and it disappeared shortly afterwards without a trace. Your editorial offers a lesser bargain – never mind your entrepreneurial drive – we just want you here now and at any cost, regardless of your culture, religion, nationality or status, because we need your tax money and overall economical, positive input. Your last paragraph expresses your hope to improve the lives of all by seeing it as Canadians. It is not quite right; Canadians need a reality check and need to start to see these

things as potential immigrants would. In 1980, as a Polish recipient of political asylum in Paris, I was entitled to all social benefits, identical to the non-immigrant citizens of France. I worked as professional in the trade I learned in Poland. I never felt unequal in that traditional country of asylum, where millions of immigrants received shelter and worked for themselves their place in life. I never worked there with a toothache. I decided to move to Canada but not because I had to. I moved to Canada because I wanted to. The United States, Australia and the Republic of South Africa had offered very attractive options to Polish refugees. The main reason I left France in 1982 was the ‘Red Threat’, and a promise of abundant, peaceful lifestyle omnipresent in Canada. I was told by the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris that the streets in Ontario are paved with gold. The Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris somehow forgot to tell us that Prime Minister P.E. Trudeau, in order to keep Confederation intact, filled most positions in the entire public sector with French Canadian baby boomers. For life, that is ‌

Immigrants pack up for Alberta We’ll be no less Canadian Upon arrival, it became obvious that the province of Ontario is officially bilingual, which to all immigrants at the time meant that, to function within a comfortable standard zone, they needed to know two official languages, instead of one. That by itself shouted loudly to the entire world: “Immigrants of all nations do not move to Ontario!” Most of the Polish families I met in the line-ups in the Manpower office noncommittally sniffed around for a while, packed up and moved to Alberta and B.C. Those with no technical professions, intellectuals and those service-oriented, stayed put and hoped for the best. Later, in the eighties, still looking for more permanent professional status, as a Canadian citizen, I passed a French test in the Public Service Commission in Ottawa with BAB results, denying any chance of the employment with the Government, as not fully bilingual. Questions about Canadian gross national product and about Riel uprisings closed my options of work for the Foreign Service. English interpretation of AIDS abbreviation proved my English was still not good enough for work in CSIS to interpret communist Polish radio broadcasts. I sent hundreds of resumes to hundreds of “Ottawa Citizen” career offers, while still delivering pizza, busing tables, doing security work and so on. During my initial years of work for the unionized City of Ottawa, I couldn’t move ahead due to employment freezes or lack of seniority. Later, when I had my seniority, I was told by those bilingual ones, that I’m not qualified for the position. Ultimately, 15 years later, I left the Ottawa Community Housing Corporation on the identical position, as I was hired for. Those bilingual ones, at this point, fully cooperated. While in search of new professional opportunities, at age 55 I successfully passed all ap-

titude tests for the RCMP. Again, they didn’t have a problem with my brains, but with my age and physical fitness. Why do I tell you all of this? Because you are admitting to not seeing any proofs of assimilation not working, regardless of the cultural or religious background of the immigrants. You are absolutely right and I congratulate you for this accuracy in forming public opinion as the editor of our local paper. During years of work for the City Living Non-Profit Housing I enjoyed working with and for hundreds and hundreds of my clients, the housing tenants, that is. All races, religions, cultures and skin colours passed right by me, leaving me with my firm impression, that they were all very good, friendly people, willing to be accepted and to share their customs, culture and constructive beliefs with all Canadians, like you. They, without exception, moved here in search of a better life. It took some just a bit longer to buy their first house … with their numerous toothaches. Today, I run a seasonal property maintenance business founded 17 years ago in the woods of the Lower Ashdad. I’ve been working continually since 44 years and have never been working so hard. After 30 years of working for Canada I almost, thanks God, lost all of my teeth. This winter I gave a final test to my employment capacities, appalled by the vision of my Canadian perspective of retirement at the age of not even 65, but 67. I applied for three winter jobs of a rather lower end, and got none. So, Editor, please give me an answer: “Why does the Town of Renfrew or rural Canada need more immigrants”? I’m already under impression we have one too many. Andrew Kasprzak Burnstown

when the CBC is sold off To the Editor: I could not believe the response to the petition to sell off the CBC. The contention of Ms. Tabbert (who was not even a serious Liberal candidate in the last election, bet she wishes she ran for the NDP in Quebec) that the CBC binds as a nation, as they say in a famous beer commercial, ‘I am Canadian’ and I still will be Canadian, even after we sell off the CBC. As for Ms. McSheffrey’s conspiracy theory, that private TV networks are financing the Conservatives to remove the CBC as one of their competitors, you would expect as a former candidate for the NDP, she would know the law governing election finance. Bill

C-2 the Federal Accountability Act, changed the Election Canada Act, so Corporations and unions can no longer make donations. According to Skippy Hale’s letter to the editor, the CBC is for everything good and wonderful in the world. She says their shows are sold all over the world. Mrs. Hale may want to check something called TV ratings, to see how wrong she is. If they are so successful, why do they need a $1.1-billion subsidy? Enjoy Little Mosque on the Prairie Mrs. Hale, just do not expect the rest of us to pay for it, and by the way it is the Alberta Oil Sands not Tar Sands. Tony Eitzen Arnprior

Keep our pensions, change MP’s To the editor: I am writing this letter to get the Canadian people, the voters, the taxpayers, to sit up and take notice. This is something that I feel is important to all Canadians regardless of age. It is about the raising of the age eligibility for the Old Age Security (OAS). It has the possibility of going from age 65 to 67. The government has already made changes to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP). If you apply for CPP before 65 the benefits have decreased way more starting in 2012. If you continue to work after starting the CPP at age 60 (plus) you will also have to continue to contribute to your CPP until you reach 65. Things are being changed and we find out later and it’s too late to stop them. We need to take a stand now before it’s too late.

Let the government make changes at their level. I say the pensions for the MPs should be changed. They are asking us to wait until age 67 when an MP can collect a pension after working only six years. Possibly at age 55. A pension that we, as taxpayers, are paying for. According to the news and websites, we give $23 for every $1 the MP gives. They say the OAS will not be able to support itself in the years to come but I say, “We will not support the MPs’ pensions today.” A senior at 65 gets an OAS for $6,328 (2011 figures) for the year. A senior could get approximately, with the Guaranteed Income Supplement, (CIS) $12,000. There are MPs right now who can collect, at age 55, pensions ranging from $26,000 to $53,540. Changes can and should be made to the pensions for the MPs. Janet Salmon, Lombardy

Nature’s signs of spring don’t appear on the calendar EMC Lifestyle – Finally, March is here and with comes the vernal equinox and the official arrival of spring. But what is there in Nature that tells us spring has arrived? What are the signs? Someone told me they recently saw an American Robin. “Spring is here!” they boldly declared. I hate to be a bubble-buster, but this winter we had record numbers of robins spending the winter. No, they did not lose their way in migration and, no, earthworms were not generally available because of warmer temperatures. Instead, a bumper crop of berries on shrubs such as Common Buckthorn enticed them to remain. Someone else told me recently they saw a Red-winged Blackbird. “Does this mean spring is here?” they excitedly asked. “Sorry,” I replied. A few always spend the winter and this year a couple of Redwinged Blackbirds were observed on the Boxing Day Bird Count. Another person reported Northern Cardinals have started to sing, and that surely signifies that spring is here. I told them: “Since cardinals will sing on warm days in winter, if I heard one break into

song, I would not dust off my lawn mower quite yet.” Several others told me that the geese are now flying north. “Now surely that is a sign that spring has arrived, is it not?” I was asked. Once again, “not really,” was my reply. Geese also overwinter and many stayed farther north than usual because of the mild conditions. Okay, then, is there any true sign of spring that I would consider to be a valid one. Would the appearance of Snow Fleas, those little black jumping insects (not fleas) that appear by the zillions (or whatever number is larger

Lanark’s maple tapping-out party is set for March 15 EMC Events – Springdale Farm Maple Products near Clayton will host the Lanark and District Maple Syrup Producers Association’s 22nd annual Maple Tapping Out Party on Thursday, March 15. Don and Marion Dodds and their family extend a warm welcome to everyone to attend this family fun event and celebrate the maple syrup season. Activities will be ongoing from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The day will not only provide the opportunity to promote the maple syrup industry but also to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the designation

of Lanark County as ‘The Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario’. Leanne Cusack of CTV Ottawa will perform the ceremonial first tap at noon. There will be a ham and maple baked bean lunch with coleslaw, roll, maple dessert and drink for $10 (children under 12 $5). For $4 enjoy a hot dog, drink and maple cookie. Profits from the meals will be donated to the Middleville Museum Building Expansion Fund. Other activities throughout the day include: • horse drawn sleigh rides

than the U.S. deficit) on top of the snow at this time of year? Perhaps, but to me they spell the end of winter instead of the arrival of spring. Watch out for these mini Michelin-man creatures any time now. Look for pepper grains that suddenly vanish into thin air. Would the appearance of male Common Mergansers, those dashing black and white diving ducks that sport bright red bills and orange feet, be acceptable? It might be, except that a few overwinter and return as soon as the ice begins to melt off larger rivers and lakes. The latter are still frozen as far as I know. How about the start of the nesting season for birds? Well, as you know from an earlier column, Common Ravens and Great Horned Owls have already started their parental duties. Thus, nesting birds may not be the best indicator. However, I would consider the awakening of the frozen frogs or the emergence of the spring ephemerals – the trilliums, bloodroots, violets, hepaticas, and spring beauties – to be more valid indications of the arrival of the next season. As soon as someone reports one of these beauties in bloom or reports the first peeps of

a Spring Peeper or croaks of a Chorus Frog, then and only then shall I raise the flag of liberation. The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

Anglers reminded to stay safe on ice EMC News – The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resource is reminding anglers to put safety first as winter comes to a close and the temperature begins to warm. Many factors affect the thickness and strength of ice on lakes and rivers. Ice conditions can be deceptive and variable. Check thickness regularly with a spud bar or auger as you move further out on the ice. Ice does not freeze at a uniform thickness across most lakes and rivers. This is often the case near the beginning or end of the winter season or during a warmer winter when nearshore ice is often much thicker and safer than ice further out.

Bullying, Walt Disney and a whole lot more STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC News - Topics were as varied as the young public speakers’ ages and interest. The Arnprior Royal Canadian Legion branch 174’s public speaking finals Feb.26 wrapped up with winners declared in the four age categories, winners who advance to last weekend’s G-6 zone finals, also at the Arnprior Legion. Winners included Meg Redmond of John XXIII Catholic School in the Grade 1-3 division. She spoke about her visit to Walt Disney World in Florida. After winning for the first time in three appearances at the zone finals, the nine-year-old said, “It was pretty exciting.” Payton McGregor of St. Joseph’s Catholic School took second in the Grade 1-3 division

with her presentation, If I Were A Parent. Other topics in the four age categories included Bullying, Cancer, My Dog Montana, and What I Want to Be When I grow up. Nolan McGregor, with Both My Parents Are Teachers, addressed the pros and cons of having two teachers at home, to top the Grade 4-6 category. “You have to fix your mistakes (more often),” said the St. Joseph’s Catholic School winner. Kaleigh Wright, of McNab Public School, took second place with her talk about bees. Racial Segregation in the ‘50s and ‘60s was the topic of the Grades 7-9 winner, Emily Croft of McNab Public School. “It’s interesting how people treated people back then (in the 1950s and ‘60s), compared

to how they get treated now,” said Croft, 13, alluding to when blacks and whites couldn’t even drink from the same water fountains. She was considering a different topic, as she searched the Internet for ideas. Coincidentally, it was Jan. 16, or Martin Luther King Jr. Day, when she came across information about such human rights activists as King and Rosa Parks, and changed her topic. “I’ve always been raised to treat people for what’s on the inside, not on the outside,” said the Stewartville resident. Croft also won while participating for the first time in the branch public speaking finals. Second place in the Grade 7-9 division went to Dharmi Patel of A.J. Charbonneau Public School for her talk about cancer. The winner in the Grade 10-12 division was

Allison Hutchingame of Arnprior District High School. She spoke about creative writing and the importance of creating good characters. Without them, a plot is just too boring, said the Grade 12 student. Hutchingame plans to study animation at Loyalist College after graduating. Like some of her favourite authors, such as Stephanie Meyer, Kristin Cast and Richelle Mead, she said she hopes to add her own chapter to the art of writing. Hutchingame and the other first-place finishers represented the Arnprior branch in Sunday’s G-6 zone finals. Other students were representing Legion branches in Kanata, West Carleton, Lanark, Smiths Falls, Almonte, Carleton Place and Perth.

A.J. Public School playground campaign nears fundraising goal Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC News- If you heard some cheers and hollers coming from A.J. Charbonneau Public School recently, there’s a good reason why. Playground fundraising efforts at the school are just about complete and construction on the new structure, along with a paved outdoor rink/basketball court is expected to begin this spring. A.J. Charbonneau Public School principal Angie McGrath and playground fundraising committee chair Lori Ann Cherney recently expressed thanks to the town and community for its support of the $60,000 project. McGrath praised the efforts of Cherney, along with Cherney’s mom Betty Daze and school secretary Clare Hamilton, who worked tirelessly to see the campaign through. “What is nice about this campaign is that it spread out into the community,” said McGrath. “And it’s going to be a community playground.” The town has supported the project and combined with the fundraising efforts, the total is up over $50,000. A helping hands campaign that has raised more than $5,000 so far and a fundraising concert featuring Kyle Felhaver and friends are among the major fundraisers at the school and in the community. The chair’s fundraising spirit obviously wore off on her children – Thomas and Emily Cherney picked up Mount Pakenham tubing passes for being the school’s top fundraisers. Russell Staye’s Grade 6 class raised the most money, entitling students to see their teacher dressed as a female and to choose the colour of Lori Ann Cherney’s highlights – pink, blue and purple. Cherney expressed thanks to Kristine Pollard of Hair X who came in on her day off for the special hair colouring. Special thanks also go to TD Canada Trust, Metro and Giant Tiger for their support. Next up the committee will be looking for corporate donors and working on further fundraising activities.

Analysis predicts troubled future for governments in Eastern Ontario EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Results of a comprehensive ďŹ nancial study of Eastern Ontario municipalities paint a sobering picture of a region struggling with a limited tax base, rising debt levels and a growing need to invest in infrastructure. An Eastern Ontario Wardensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Caucus (EOWC) initiative, the Eastern Ontario Financial Sustainability Update Project examined economic condition of 114 urban and rural local governments in Eastern Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known for some time that Eastern Ontario communities are facing tough challenges,â&#x20AC;? said EOWC chair Mel Campbell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we know exactly what these challenges are and how they will affect the ability of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local governments to provide vital community services and maintain our roads, bridges and other infrastructure.â&#x20AC;? The Project Report, Facing our Fiscal Challenges, identiďŹ es numerous

factors that contribute to the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nancial sustainability. In addition to challenges faced by the region, the report identiďŹ es long-standing difďŹ culties unique to Eastern Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 103 rural municipalities:  Limited tax base to pay for services and maintain existing infrastructure. Residents contribute almost 90 per cent of property taxes collected in the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural communities due to low levels of commercial and industrial activity, and large areas of Crown land and managed forest that are partially or completely exempt from municipal property taxes. In addition, these residents are more likely to have lower incomes, be unemployed, and be over age 65 compared with the rest of the Ontario.  Rising debt levels. Municipal debt levels have increased about 300 per cent over the past decade.  Growing and critical need to

maintain existing infrastructure and meet future needs. Municipalities in Rural Eastern Ontario need to find an additional $500 million to $600 million per year to maintain existing capital assets, including roads and bridges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Municipalities in rural Eastern Ontario, like Frontenac County, must fund higher service delivery costs with a limited tax base,â&#x20AC;? said EOWC vice-chair Janet Gutowski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roads in the rural region span an area roughly equal to 1.5 times the distance around the world. In the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s separated cities the cost of rebuilding one lane-km of road is split between 25 households, while in our rural areas, the same cost is shared by only five households. Economies of scale are rare.â&#x20AC;? Residents of Eastern Ontario pay their taxes. However, the report makes it clear that these residents are reaching the limit of their ability

to pay for existing services and meet long-term infrastructure needs. Eastern Ontario governments cannot face this challenge alone, concludes the wardensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; report. The EOWC is initiating a series of

discussions at both federal and provincial levels to find ways to address the region's unique concerns and issues over the long term, while recognizing all levels of government face major financial challenges.

OMB hearing pushed back EMC News - The Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) hearing between opponents of a residential development in front of The Grove Nursing Home and town ofďŹ cials has been pushed back to April. The opponents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including Russ Corbett, Tom Marshall and six others â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were to argue the environmental signiďŹ cance of the property, which stretches from Gillies Grove to Division Street, at the scheduled March 5-6 hearing. Arnprior town council approved back in October developer Don Johnstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request to include many more units on the land, which has been slated for residential development for decades now. Town planner Robin Smith said a prehearing discussion was done by phone, but when the OMB representative realized the complexity of the issues the March dates were cancelled. The hearing is expected to go ahead on April 18.

Packers draw first blood

COYOTES CUT DOWN MAD MOOSE

JOHN CARTER John.carter@metroland.com

EMC Sports - The Arnprior Packers came out with guns blazing in the Eastern Ontario Junior B Hockey Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Valley Division final opener. The Packers jumped out to a 3-0 lead, and later led 5-1 and 8-3 before coasting to an 8-5 win over the visiting Perth Blue Wings Tuesday at Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nick Smith Centre. Game two of the best-ofseven match-up went Wednesday in Perth (after press deadline). The series resumes this Friday in Arnprior at 8 p.m. with Packers coach Bill Griese urging fans to show up in force to cheer the team on in what he sees as a crucial game for his team as they vie for the Eastern Ontario Junior B hockey Valley Division playoff crown that has eluded them for so long. Arnprior is looking to end a 14-year drought by capturing their first Valley Division playoff title since 1998 when they topped Renfrew in five games. Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last title also came

over Renfrew two years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d really like to see it (Nick Smith Centre) packed Friday,â&#x20AC;? Griese said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always thought game three is the most important in a series.â&#x20AC;? Griese said the high-scoring first game is likely indicative of the way the series will go. Both teams have a flock of speedy forwards who can put the puck in the net, he noted. He said the difference in game one was the Packers strong forecheck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our backchecking was phenomenal,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a key in playoff hockey.â&#x20AC;? He said Dan Weir, who scored two third-period goals against his old team, was really up for Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opener. Derrin Lehoux and Taylor Collins also scored two goals and added two assists each for the Packers. Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other goals were scored by Parker Davies, Derek Lowry and Ryan Eady. Griese said Arnprior goalie Matt Couvrette made some key saves, especially when Perth had a five-on-three advantage. The coach said he has the

     

  

luxury of rolling four lines, an important advantage is playoff hockey, especially when there are back-to-back games as there were this week. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also key because both teams are banged up with players who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely be playing if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the playoffs, he said. Griese said he expected the series to be a long one as Perth is a strong, determined team. The key to Packers winning on the road will be to weather the first 10 minutes as the Blue Wings are expected to come out flying in front of their home fans, he said. The Packers reached the final on the strength of a fourgame sweep over the Renfrew Timberwolves. Perth deposited the Almonte Thunder in five games. The Gatineau Mustangs and Ottawa West Golden Knights are squaring off in the Metro Division final. Gatineau ousted the Metcalfe Jets in five games while Ottawa West outlasted the defending EOJHL champion Clarence Creek Beavers in seven games. Ottawa West has since won the first game of the Metro final in Gatineau 5-1. The Athens Aeros and Cassselman Vikings lead RideauSt. Lawrence Division series. After game three of the Valley Division final Friday, Perth hosts game four Sunday, March 11 at 1:30 p.m.. If needed, game five will be held in Arnprior on Wednesday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m.; game six Friday, March 16 in Perth at 7:45 p.m.; and game seven in Arnprior on Sunday, March 18 at 7:30 p.m. With files from Peter Clark

EMC Sports - March 1 was a great day on the slopes for Arnprior District High School snowboarders with the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team bringing home the silver medal and Chanelle Fortin an individual bronze in the OFSAA competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very proud of our ADHS snowboard athleteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accomplishments. Their hard work and dedication to training has really paid off. It has been a pleasure to work with such a group with such enthusiasm and passion for snowboarding,â&#x20AC;? said coach Krista Petrie-Wallace. Fortin and teammate Amanda Milne are in their final year at ADHS and are wrapping up their high school alpine sports career on a high note as part of a veteran team. They led the Level 1 girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team to their silver medal win at OFSAA, says Petrie-Wallace, an impressive accomplishment considering 22 teams were competing. Considering the number of rookies on the boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team, its 10th placing out of 28 teams was also impressive. Fortin won silver at the 2011 OFSAA and had her sights set on gold this year. However, conditions were soft and slushy and the courses were very rutty, and at the end of the day, it was bronze she took home. Fortin also stayed down south and competed for the first time at the Ontario Snowboard Championships, which Petrie-Wallace explains are club championships (not high school related) held at Mount St Louis Moonstone ski hill March 1-4. In her second day ever trying snowboardcross, she placed fourth in the province. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an outstanding accomplishment,â&#x20AC;? said Petrie-Wallace. The ADHS girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; OFSAA team was made up of Chanelle Fortin, Amanda Milne, Sadie Partington-Riopelle, and Amy Furgoch. The boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team was made up of Derek Gray, Micheal Smith, Jason Green, Zach Barr and Reid Wensley.

9, at the Kenwood Centre at 78 Edward St. The cost is $50, with late registration $60. Required equipment includes lacrosse stick (some available at Kenwood), hockey helmet with face shield, shoulder pads, elbow pads, mouth guard, indoor running shoes and jersey. Divisions will run from ages 3 to 16. There are coaches for the clinics, but if you have lacrosse experience and would like to help out, you are encouraged to volunteer. For more information on the clinics, contact the club at 613-623-1030 or Doug Cavanagh by email at kenwoodathletic@live.com.

Do not pass go, Rotary Club, do not collect town money derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC News – The Arnprior Rotary Club won’t get a contribution from the town for its Arnprior-opoly game in celebration of the town’s 150th anniversary. The Monopoly-like game is selling spaces to businesses and others; properties are $500 each, $800 per corner, and $1,500 for three spaces plus 28 Chance or Community Chest cards, each with a logo. “May I invite you, your worship, and members of council to give consideration to the purchase of a corner on the board?” Rotary’s Leo Hughes wrote to council. “That corner would be the starting point of the game with the familiar words Collect $200.” At a council meeting Feb. 27, Coun. Lynn Grinstead flatly rejected the idea of giving taxpayer money to the project, saying it would encourage other groups to ask the town for money. Reeve Walter Stack agreed with the slippery-slope possibility. Coun. Mark Willmer said the town has already donated and in-kind services to the 150th celebrations.

Grinstead made it clear that the town wouldn’t be assisting other fundraisers; that they are “complementary” to the 150th committee that she chairs, and that any group is welcome to participate in the project. Mayor David Reid and councillors Dan Lynch and Lyle Anderson were absent. Parks and Recreation director Glenn Arthur said the board game is meant to reflect the town of Arnprior, therefore the Town of Arnprior should participate. He said the funds will eventually make their way back to the town. But that more importantly, it would show support when Rotary approaches businesses for their participation. Coun. Ted Strike said there is a finite amount in the budget. “There’s only so much money,” Strike said. “And you can’t turn off the tap if others ask for it.” Arthur said the town is “forever giving money to other service groups” through free rentals, but that this “is just cash.” Council decided not to buy the spot, but did agree with Rotary’s second request – to allow for the use of the town crest on the game board.

Each club, including Curves of Arnprior, is asking its members to donate bags of non-perishable food or cash throughout March to support their local community food bank. In addition, Curves will waive the joining fee for new members who bring in a bag of non-perishable food or donate $30 to their local food bank from March 12 to 25. With a theme of ‘Good for your body and your soul’, this year’s drive encourages Curves members to feel doubly good about themselves as they make time to exercise for good health and take time to help others in the community with a donation of nutritious food. Local Curves clubs may also qualify to win cash prizes for their local food banks. Curves International will award cash to the clubs that collect the most food, show the greatest increase in donations over the 2011 food drive, and to two additional clubs randomly selected from all who enter the contest. “We would love to see all of our clubs top their donation levels from last year,” said Curves founder Diane Heavin.

EMC News - In her March column, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant defends her party’s stance on controversial Bill C-30 that has come under fire for compromising individual privacy. Gallant insists the bill updates the law “while striking the right balance between combating crime and protecting privacy.” The upgrading is needed because Canada’s laws do not adequately protect Canadians from online exploitation, she writes. She says police are asking for the change because they do not have the tools to effectively fight crimes related to child pornography but also identity theft, online organized crime, and many Internet scams and frauds. Gallant maintains the Bill C-30 adheres to the principles of due process, respect for privacy and the presumption of innocence. The legislation closely resembles regulations proposed by the previous Liberal government, “but with important improvements which better protect the privacy of Canadians,” she says

The number of basic subscriber information points that police can request of service providers has been reduced to six, she says, adding they are name, address, phone number, email address, Internet protocol address and local service provider identifier. Basic subscriber information does not include information pertaining to the websites a person has visited, or the content of emails or phone calls either made or received, she adds. Gallant stresses that Bill C-30 would create “no new powers to access the content of emails, web browsing history or phone calls beyond the powers that already exist in Canadian law today.” In respect to personal privacy of individuals, for example the content of emails, the web browsing history, the content of telephone calls, that remains off limits in the same way it does today without this law, she says. Furthermore, it makes police 100 per cent accountable through audits and obligations to report to federal and provincial privacy commissioners, she adds. “Bill C-30 does nothing to expand the powers of police to obtain personal infor-

mation without warrant,” she writes. “The proposed law simply recognizes the differences in technology and, therefore, attempts to update the law in terms of ensuring that technology is captured by the legislation.” Charging that a great deal of misinformation has been spread about the legislation, Gallant says Canadians deserve to hear a “reasonable dialogue” on the issue, “based on reason rather than hysteria, facts rather than outlandish conspiracy theories.” The Liberal “flip-flop” on the legislation, which has the support of all provincial and territorial attorneys general and public safety ministers, is “simply unbelievable,” she writes. “That party is the last one that should lecture Parliament on how to better protect Canadians. “This is the same gang that enacted Bill C-68, a bill that criminalized lawabiding farmers and duck hunters and violated our constitutional rights no less than 11 times.” For Gallant’s full column, see the newspaper’s website at www.yourottawaregion.com.

Special ingredient in these appetizers is maple syrup EMC Lifestyle - I still remember years ago visiting a sugar shack with my father. As we walked in the door, we were enveloped by the sweet-smelling steam billowing off the evaporating pans where the sap was boiling. And I remember the year that my husband and I tapped the maple trees close to our house. We watched for hours as the sap boiled down in a large canning kettle over a makeshift outdoor ďŹ re. We eventually ended up with two gallons of maple syrup. That experience gave us a new understanding of the formula that it takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. We savored every drop of that syrup. March is the month when the new maple syrup is produced, and if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen how this process takes place, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth a trip to a sugar bush. Maple syrup can be used for more than pouring over pancakes. Here are two easy recipes

temperature 1 cup grated medium Cheddar cheese 1 tbsp. maple syrup Combine the 3 ingredients in a food processor, and mix until smooth. Chill 2 hours before serving. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a food processor, use an electric mixer. This spread has just a suggestion of sweetness. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best served with crackers that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a strong ďŹ&#x201A;avor of their own so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overpower the taste of the spread. I like to serve it with thin, lightly salted crackers such as Bretons or rice crackers.

that use it in appetizers. One is for a cheese spread that has just a hint of sweetness. The other is for a hot appetizer -- scallops wrapped in bacon, brushed with maple syrup, then broiled. Because the scallops are quite rich, I suggest serving no more than three or four per person. MAPLE CHEESE SPREAD

125 gm pkg. cream cheese, softened to room

MAPLE SCALLOPS

4 medium or large scallops per person 2 slices of bacon per person 1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup (1/4 cup will do 8

scallops) If the scallops are frozen, thaw, and pat them dry with paper towels. Preheat your oven broiler. Take a baking tray that has a 1/2â&#x20AC;? lip around the entire edge, and line it with aluminum foil. Set a wire cake rack on the foil. Cut each slice of bacon in two pieces, each about 3-4â&#x20AC;? long. Wrap a slice of bacon around a scallop, and fasten it with a toothpick. Place this on the wire rack. Repeat with the remaining scallops and bacon, then liberally brush each one with maple syrup. Set the baking dish about 4â&#x20AC;? from the broiler. Broil the scallops for 5 minutes, then turn them over. Brush again with more maple syrup. Broil for another 3-5 minutes until the bacon is cooked until almost crisp. Serve hot on plates with a knife and fork.

Pancakes at Lent and literacy highlight activities at Arnprior Catholic schools Father John Burchat led the celebration and reminded everyone that during Lent we are called to give, fast and pray.â&#x20AC;? During Lent, students at John XXIII raise money for its sister school in Antonci, Dominican Republic. This year students hope to raise enough to purchase a computer for the school. Last year their funds helped replace the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water pipes. John XXIII has been recognized as a School of Distinction by the Fraser Institute and presented with The Imperial Oil Foundation Award for Excellence in Mathematics.

The school has also set some literacy targets for the students. Several members of the Catholic Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s League have been reading to Grade

1 students, which Fraser said is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a wonderful way to draw attention to our connection to the church and to develop reading skills simultaneously.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, at St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic School in Arnprior, parents, staff and students hosted the annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. More than 250 people ďŹ&#x201A;ocked to St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to enjoy pancakes, wafďŹ&#x201A;es, sausages, ham and all the ďŹ xings. Tim Hortons donated coffee and McNeelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dairy donated milk. St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is expanding its French language program for kindergarten students this fall. Students

will receive instruction in French for up to 25 per cent of their day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will continue to receive 40 minutes of core FSL, but our program will be enhanced with further everyday activities that will be delivered in a French environment,â&#x20AC;? said principal Mary-Lise Rowat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, we will ensure that students will receive the quality instruction in literacy and numeracy in English that is the cornerstone of their education,â&#x20AC;? she added. Weekly classroom visits by Father Blake had prepared students to understand the importance of the Lenten season.

Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beef, Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father asks at Lent EMC Lifestyle - My sister Audrey said we had a divided household. She tried to explain it to me, but I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t old enough to grasp the full meaning. I knew it had something to do with voting, and something to do with religion. But in my young and impressionable mind, I thought if you had a divided household, it could also mean there would be some sort of partition cutting the old log house in half. But Audrey ran out of patience trying to explain it all to me, but she did say it had nothing to do with slicing our house in two. But one year I got a firmer picture in my mind when Lent came around. Mother, who had been a Catholic all her life, but then went to the Lutheran Church when she moved out to Northcote, still liked to stick to some of the rituals of the Catholic Church. Of course, Father was not at all pleased with Mother making even a slight reference to â&#x20AC;&#x153;that other churchâ&#x20AC;? as he called it. Mother would never eat meat on Friday. Father thought that was sheer nonsense. He liked his meat three times a day, and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what day of the week it was! So Mother cooked the usual big supper on Fridays, but she never put as much as a scrap on her own plate. She often scrambled eggs instead, which Father thought should only be put on your plate at breakfast, and then with a heaping serving of fried salt pork beside it! Well, Mother thought it would be a good year for all of us to give up meat on the Fridays that year during Lent. How to get Father to agree was

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

the issue. Father loved his food. Although he was as thin as a willow, he could, as Mother often said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;eat any man twice his size under the table,â&#x20AC;? whatever that meant. It was nothing for him to pile three pork chops onto his plate, and there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much left to a pot roast by the time Father was finished with it. No, Mother was going to have her work cut out for her if she thought she was going to get Father to give up meat during Lent. She had already talked my sister Audrey and me into giving up something for the entire duration of Lent, which to me was taking this idea too far. Audrey gave up butter. I loved butter, and it would take more than a Holy Day to make me give it up for a few weeks. So I decided I would give up humbugs. I hated humbugs with a passion. Mr. Briscoe, who had no idea I disliked the little odd shaped striped candies, always pressed one or two into my hand when we finished our shopping. Good manners drilled into us by the time we were walking prevented me from doing anything but thanking him with all the

enthusiasm I could muster under the circumstances. But as soon as I got outside, I would chuck them into a potted plant, or take them home to feed them to my pet calf who seemed to thrive on them. That first Friday in Lent, when we came home from the Northcote School, Mother was already busy at getting supper. I knew something was in the air, when I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smell roasting chicken, sausages or beef cooking. The big fry pan was sitting on the reservoir, but there was no meat in it. Pots were boiling and sticky buns were on the bake table. But there was no meat in sight. On the way home from school, my sister Audrey said donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised if there was trouble to pay at supper that night. She wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t elaborate, and my stomach was in knots by the time I came downstairs from changing out of my school clothes. Mother was bustling between the Findlay Oval and the table when Father and the brothers came in from doing the evening chores. They took turns washing up at the bench near the back door, and Father walked over and took his place at the head of the table. Mother moved the big fry pan to the front lid of the stove, slapped in a slab of butter, and reached up into the warming closet and took out a platter of herring. It came from a barrel father had salted away in the summer kitchen in the late Fall. The fish made a sizzling sound as it hit the hot pan, and Father turned around in his chair to take a look at what was going on behind his back.

Audrey was ordered to load the bowls with the vegetables and put them on the table. By the time she got that done, Mother had the fish on a platter and put it in front of Father. He was sitting there with his knife in one hand and his fork in the other, both pointing towards the ceiling. He took another look at the Findlay Oval. Audrey leaned over and whispered in my ear, â&#x20AC;&#x153;he thinks there is a roast of beef in the oven.â&#x20AC;? Well, Mother took her place at the other end of the table, and asked Father to say the Grace. I noticed he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have his eyes shut that night, and the Grace was shorter than usual. The bowls of vegetables and

creamed potatoes went around the table, and Father took the biggest piece of fish off the platter. I never took my eyes off him. When he had helped himself to everything, he half turned in his chair towards the Findlay Oval. He looked right at Mother. All he said was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the meat?â&#x20AC;? Mother let out a big sigh. She went to the ice box and took out a plate of cold headcheese, and slapped it down in front of Father who cut a two-inch slice and piled it on his already overflowing plate. When supper was over, and we were redding up the kitchen, I asked Audrey when Lent would be over. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not soon enoughâ&#x20AC;? was all she said.

New LHIN CEO expert on seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; programs EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Champlain Local Health Integration Network board of directors announced Monday that Chantale LeClerc is its new chief executive officer, replacing Alex Munter, who left last fall to take over the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. LeClerc has been interim CEO since October. She joined the LHIN in 2008 as senior director of health system integration. She has a 20-year healthcare career across various health sectors and in roles related to clinical care, research, education, professional practice and senior administration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a nurse and health-care planner, Chantale LeClerc possesses that wonderful combination of front-line experience and decision-making expertise,â&#x20AC;? said board chairman Dr. Wilbert Keon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her innovative work in developing new seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; programs has been exemplary, and her thoughtful and collaborative approach to complex challenges is one of her greatest strengths. With Chantaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proven leadership skills, I am confident that the Champlain LHIN will build a higher-quality, more co-ordinated regional health system for the residents of Champlain.â&#x20AC;?

Lehner sees chance to help keep Sens rolling By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com Robin Lehner hardly knows yet exactly how wide the door has just opened for him. But the Ottawa Senatorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top goaltending prospect sees his latest callup to the National Hockey League for exactly what it is â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a chance to help the team keep piling up the wins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a good opportunity when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re up here,â&#x20AC;? the 20-year-old Lehner said after being summoned from the Binghamton Senators in the wake of the hand injury suffered by Craig Anderson that will sideline the Ottawa starter indeďŹ nitely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(When) I see the ice, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to try to do my best and try to help the team (stay) on a roll. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been watching them a lot and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had great success with Andy and (Alex Auld). Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to try to get the chance and keep it rolling.â&#x20AC;? Lehner certainly did his part in his ďŹ rst two appearances after his callup, backstopping the Senators to a 5-2 victory Ottawa Senators goaltender Robin Lehner is doing his best to over the New York Islanders help fill the void in the absence of injured starter Craig Anderson and then recording his ďŹ rst (Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via Getty Images).

BUFFALO SABRES Saturday, March 10, 7 p.m., CBC With only a month to go in the season, the Sabres find themselves staring up at an Eastern Conference playoff position â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and running short on time to land one. Buffalo captain Jason Pominville is showing leadership offensively, too, as the Sabresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top goal scorer, with Thomas Vanek and Derek Roy also key contributors to an attack that added Cody Hodgson (from Vancouver) at

the trade deadline. Buffaloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blue line misses the offensive contributions of the injured Christian Ehrhoff, but also boasts Jordan Leopold and Tyler Myers. In goal, Ryan Miller continues to battle through an up-and-down season.

Buffalo Sabres captain Jason Pominville is also a leader on the scoreboard for the team (Photo by Mike Stobe/NHLI via Getty Images).

MONTREAL CANADIENS Friday, March 16, 7 p.m., CBC Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long, frustrating decline this season for the Canadiens, who have slid to the bottom of the Eastern Conference in recent weeks and will most likely be spectators when the playoffs begin. Goals have come at a premium for Montreal this season, but Max Pacioretty and Erik Cole have been effective leaders in that area for an attack that also relies heavily on the likes of

David Desharnais and Tomas Plekanec. Steady defenceman Hal Gill was dealt away at the deadline, leaving Tomas Kaberle, P.K. Subban and Josh Gorges to lead the way on the blue line. Carey Price remains the Habsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; workhorse in goal.

Max Pacioretty has emerged as a key offensive threat for the Montreal Canadiens (Photo by Francois Lacasse/NHLI via Getty Images).

career National Hockey League shutout as Ottawa blanked the Bruins 2-0 in Boston last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe when he comes here, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a different person,â&#x20AC;? said Senators general manager Bryan Murray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He works real hard and he plays real hard, and we know he can play in the NHL. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen him do that. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big guy with good athletic ability. We know we can put him in and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a chance to win.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also seen plenty of evidence that Lehner can win the biggest games of them all. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the starter when Binghamton entered the American Hockey League playoffs a year ago but by the ďŹ rst week of June, the B-Sens were hoisting the Calder Cup and Lehner was named the most valuable player of the post-season. The native of Goteborg, Sweden, arrived at Senators training camp in September aiming to challenge for the backup job with the big club. But Ottawa management decided Lehner would be better served playing 60-plus games with the B-Sens and being the cornerstone of another playoff contender there. It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly worked out that way. With about a month left in the season, the B-Sens reside in the East Division basement arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to make it back to the post-season. Lehner is 8-16-1 with a 3.38 goals-against average, though his last start before his callup was impressive â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he stopped 36 of 38 shots he faced as Binghamton whipped the Portland Pirates 6-2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a tough season for all of us down there,â&#x20AC;? said Lehner, a second-round pick (46th overall) by the Senators in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been what we all wanted it to be. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a young team, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some injuries,

but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way it is.â&#x20AC;? Perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rather telling that there are almost as many members of last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Calder Cup championship team now in Ottawa than there currently are still in Binghamton. While Lehner clearly stepped up his game when it mattered in the playoffs a year ago, his education as a professional has hardly stopped during the current campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything you go through helps you now,â&#x20AC;? Lehner said when asked if last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Calder Cup experience might come in handy now during a critical stretch in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesterday is going to help me now, everything you go through. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone through a lot. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone through walls and (made it) through them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all good experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same thing everywhere â&#x20AC;&#x201D; goalies and players go through rough times.

I had a seven-game losing streak through the middle of this season. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough. It was my ďŹ rst really long losing streak and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough mentally. You want to win for the team. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much more fun and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not as miserable. I learned a lot and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect my goal.â&#x20AC;? The stretch that lies ahead should provide another step on the path to the NHL. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one that the Senators hoped to afford Lehner right from the seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outset, though they hardly imagined it would come this way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the second half of the year, we really hoped we could get him some games,â&#x20AC;? said Murray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be in the standings, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a little better than we anticipated at this point, so we held off on doing that. And Craig was having such a good run. But as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said to him, things happen and you get a chance.â&#x20AC;?

Registration is due no later than April 24, but space is extremely limited to only 12 participants, so register early.

Youth Corner

EMC Lifestyle - It is time to Battle it out! Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve listened to the feedback from our high school youth through Facebook and we heard what you wanted, so we are going to have a Battle of the Bands. We tried starting this off in December but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough bands, so we are trying later in the year with hopes that the interested bands had enough time to get some songs ready. March 23 (initially semi-finals) will be our first battle. Bands must register in advance, but to come and listen door sales are available. Band fees are $20 per band; any type of music is welcome. The prizes are all once-in-a-lifetime chances. The winner of the series will play for Canada Day and 150th celebrations, Demo CD from Drift Studios as well as play in the Youth Concert in the Park series this summer with the other top three bands. Register now. We want to make sure there are enough bands to rock the night away at Arnprior District High School, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait and be disappointed. Registration is available at Nick Smith Centre, through Facebook, or through email to Kayla at kmenkhorst@arnprior.ca. SPRING REGISTRATION

It is spring time and we have spring sessions in a multitude of different sports and activities to keep everyone entertained. Registration is open now for the following spring sessions.

FENCING RETURNS

Fencing is back and continuing throughout the spring session. It is run through the Ottawa Fencing Club and teaches youth the sport of fencing. In fact, many of our current participants are competing across the province and the country and winning. Want to get involved? For those who want to start, we are offering the Yellow Armband Course from 6 -7:30 Tuesday evenings beginning April 3 and running until June 26. The 13-week course is $195. For those who have completed the yellow armband course, the orange and green armband course is being offered as well from 7:45 - 9:15 p.m. Registration is due by March 27. For more information, please feel free to contact Kayla at the Nick Smith Centre (613-623-7301), email kmenkhorst@arnprior.ca, or through Facebook â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nick Smith Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

You gave me years of happiness, Then came the sorrow and tears, But you left me beautiful memories, I will treasure through the years.

I know Ed is playing his guitar on the river bank, while Delbert and Mel are on the lake fishing and Uncle Allan is in the bush looking for that 30 point buck, and of course Grama is in the kitchen cooking and waiting for the gang to come in and eat. Keep the table set Grama we’ll all be home eventually.

“Helpless, helpless, helpless Baby can you hear me now? The chains are locked And tied across the door, Baby, sing with me somehow.” Neil Young

From the moment you left us we have mourned, and now every milestone that passes leaves us torn, because seven years ago we were so broken, so sad, when we lost our grandpa, our friend and our dad. Forever in our hearts, Love always Judy and Ryan 8A(()+-.

There are many of us. We can be found in B.C., Toronto, Ottawa, Manotik, White Lake and of course Arnprior. Our common denominator, the magnet that brought us all together, is Wade. Wade John Campbell Murdoch is the first child of Lorna and Jack Murdoch. Tanya and John soon followed and a wonderful family was created. Somehow, without even realizing it, they became family to us as well. Wade obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Toronto and, along with his father and brother, established a successful vehicle dealership and garage. In 1999 he choose Brenda McCue as his bride. They soon started a family and blessed us with Grace, Campbell and Duncan. He was a great father from the start and spent many hours with his children. In between and including these events were the good times. Whenever the boys were having a little too much fun he was there in the middle of it. Nothing too bad of course… They would of had to answer to Chip (Jack)! A gracious host, many good times were had at his home and the camp. He possessed qualities that many fear are becoming extinct. Honour, loyalty, courage and chivalry were all part of his character. Then there were the trips, the concerts, hunting season and just hanging out. There are too many adventures to list them all. What made Wade different was that he was there in good times and bad. You never counted on Wade to make sure there was enough gas in the tank before you left but you could definitely count on him when it really mattered. No matter what list of chores he had he was still there to help you out. He was a hard worker, not just at his business but anywhere he was. In return, he never asked for much from others. All he wanted was your company. He never wanted to put anyone out. Even as his illness progressed, he worried more about how his family and friends were dealing with it then he worried about himself. He always tried to keep things upbeat and hid his symptoms as best he could. You cannot take with you what you have received but only what you have given. If that statement is true we can all rest assured that Wade is being well looked after. Thank you for the memories. Most of all, thank you for showing us what a true friend is. All our lives are better having known you. With heavy hearts, one year ago, we bid you adieu. We miss you terribly. See you up the lake! Chris, Susie, Keegan and D’Arcy Kaerbye

RAMPTON, Joyce Margaret Our most beloved Joyce peacefully passed away at her home in Carp on March 1, holding the hand of her husband and soul mate, Vern, and graciously extolling love to her loving family, Shannon Nickel (Lance), Joey (Kim) and Kevin (Shauna). That was Joyce, so loving and concerned about her family. And how she loved her grandchildren: Brady, Bethany, Abby and Jake of Arnprior and Madeline, Lucas and Sarah of Barrie. Joyce was born June 6, 1942 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She truly loved her sisters, Lorraine and Judy, whom she spent many eventful years riding horseback through the sand hills south of Austin where they were all raised together on a ranch. Sadly, Joyce was predeceased by her father, Lloyd Willis, but her mother Margaret lives on in Carberry, Manitoba. All these people profoundly affected her life. Throughout her life, Joyce embraced all tasks with enthusiasm, commitment and grace: raising her children at Fairview Farm (our home of 27 years); washing their diapers in the Yukon as a grizzly so interestly watched; bringing a full busload of Carp fans to watch her son Joey make a junior hockey debute at Ottawa (much to his embarrassment); loading the vote at Kevin’s board meetings: lavishing love on all her grandchildren and trying her best to introduce them into her circle of Jesus’ love – three verses of Johnny Appleseed preceded all meals at the Calabogie Lake retreat. Joyce exuded energy and love for all tasks. When not blowing the horn about her husband’s many adventures in life, some of which she participated in enthusiastically, she could be found selling country lots (only because she was so attached to nature and willing to show the people every detail of building a country home); leading the Kinburn ladies broom ball team to glory; helping Father Basil Smith (deceased) feed his pigs; organizing her beloved lady friends for bible study and singing (singing was very important) every Friday at Carp and at spiritual get-togethers at Calabogie. Joyce helped many people in finding peace of mind and love through encouragement and example. One friend “She was such a great friend and so strong in her beliefs that she influenced me and many others for good”. Since that fateful day in late 2008, when we first discovered her cancer many people have assisted Joyce in extending her life to a joyful, peaceful end. The family would like to thank of the kindness and excellent care shown by all the doctors attending to her, specifically Dr. Andrew Girvan, the Carefor Nurses and support staff, specifically Marsha Delaney, whom would sing “Jesus loves Me” to Joyce right to the end and Drs. Amanda Connell and Jill Rice – there are many others; also her spiritual brother, Rev. Don Anderson. At Joyce’s request there was a funeral service at 2:30 pm in the Burnstown United Church on Monday, March 5 followed by a reception at the church. For all her friends in the Carp Valley and faraway there will also be a celebration of her life from 6:30 to 8:00 at the Quality Inn in Arnprior. Joyce has directed all memoriam should be donations to the Canadian Bible Society. Condolences, donations or tributes may be made at www.tubmanfuneralhomes.com

DEATH

BRYDGES – CHAPUT November 23, 2011 at 6:30 pm 7 lbs, 9 oz, Baby Girl!!! The waiting was long and arduous, Months dragged on like years, But the wait and work was all worth it, When we saw you through welled up tears. We are still enthralled with your sister, Every day brings delights anew. Never believing it could get any better, And then along came beautiful you. We sit now in double amazement, As we watch each of you grow. Proud of all your accomplishments, Loving you more than you’ll ever know. But in our joy of hugging and kissing you, There was something we almost forgot, We announced the arrival of your sister, But as for announcing you, we had not. And so without any further delay, We’re proud to say the counts at two. Get read, here comes Lexx’s backup, Elyanna Jilles Chaput. With deepest love from Momma & Poppa a.k.a. Teresa and Lance Brydges, J-Rock loves you both too. He just won’t say it.

Free pet-registration tags over 1,000 animals Owners encouraged to pick up tags at town hall DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Arnprior has about 750 more pets than town officials knew about in the past. The townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free pet-registration pilot program has been hailed as a success, bringing more than 1,066 owners forward to have their cats and dogs identified. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It exceeded all our expectations,â&#x20AC;? town clerk

Jacquie Farrow-Lawrence said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very successful. The residents seemed to be pleased with the process, and stepped forward.â&#x20AC;? A staff report is expected for next fall before council decides whether or not to offer the January-February program again. As of March 1, owners must pay $15 for the mandatory licence if their animal is spayed or neutered; $20 if not. After that, from April 1 to Dec. 31, the cost is $30 and $50.

Farrow-Lawrence said pet registration promotes â&#x20AC;&#x153;good stewardshipâ&#x20AC;? of animals. Just last week a dog got away from its owner. The registered animal was found and quickly returned, without having to involve the animal control officer. It saved the owner and municipality time and money, and reduced stress on the animal. If it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t registered, the owner could have been paying fines or associated costs. Pet registration benefits the municipality. If an animal bites someone or is involved in an accident, its owner will be easily contacted. The free program provides the town with ac-

curate statistical information. The town made no revenue off the program this year, leaving staff to scrabble for how to fund it. A high school student needing volunteer hours was used. But the hope is that by getting residents to do much of the leg work â&#x20AC;&#x201C; arriving at town hall to fill out forms, and returning to pick up tags â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the costs will be minimal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look on it as a collaborative effort,â&#x20AC;? Farrow-Lawrence said. She is anxious for some 150 to 200 owners to get back to town hall. They have yet to pick up tags.

rawhide or the marrow in the bone, things will definitely heat up. Once chewed, the pieces head on down like shards of glass waiting to do some damage. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cut up their insides, your pet ends up throwing up what was poorly digested or ends up having a bout of diarrhea. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worse than that is to have your veterinarian remove a blockage. Many of the rawhides sold today have been cleaned with a bleaching agent. Not something I would want to give my beloved pet. If you do decide to treat your pet, always supervise and remove any jagged pieces.

Flexible so they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t damage their teeth and can be stuffed with their favorite treat like peanut butter. Kongs come in all shapes and sizes, including a water Kong that floats. Kongs also come in two strengths, regular and tough. Bone appĂŠtit! Ian owns and operates Wags & Whiskers Pet Grooming and Puppy Kindergarten at 118 John St. North.

NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING gets read. gets remembered. gets results With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

EMC Business - Shoppers Drug Mart presented $25,000 to Arnprior District Memorial Hospital’s Digital Mammography Unit on Feb 29. The donation, added to the Tree of Life funds, has boosted the store’s total donation to the ongoing campaign to $27,732. The fundraiser has been important to Shoppers Drug Mart as over the last several years, it has focused on the health and well-being of Canadian women. While there are many important causes worthy of support, women’s health is the cause the company believes it can impact most. The goal of both national and local community involvement is to support the health of Canadian women in body, mind and spirit, and help them live life to the fullest. So the focus of giving has been on programs that promote good health, prevent diseases, and help Canadian women lead stronger, healthier lives. In Canada, 445 breast cancer diagnoses are made each week.

EMC Lifestyle - Some people can’t venture outdoors to enjoy nature, because bright sun is too difficult to tolerate when experiencing a bad migraine. But if headaches haunt you, Brent Lucas may be able to help. The charity, Help for Headaches, was first registered in Windsor in 1995, then moved to London in 2002. It serves all of Ontario As Lucas explains, the charity’s goal is to bring to the surface “a very misunderstood health topic, with advice and knowledge from experts in neurology.” The charity has published a book on headaches and migraine called Headaches That Persist. You can check out the book at the Arnprior Public Library. It isn’t available in bookstores and can only be purchased through the charity. For more information, visit www.headache-help.org. At the website you can learn about topics covered in the book and a book review from a headache pharmacist at Sunnybrooke Hospital in Toronto. A migraine is a pain experienced in the head that can be accompanied by nausea and vomiting, and neurological symptoms such as vertigo, loss of vision and numbness. Migraines affect 18 per cent of women, six per cent of men and three per cent of children, whose quality of life can be severely affected. Help for Headaches is a member of the World Headache Alliance and a member of the Canadian Pain Society.
