EMC News – A bombshell fell on Arnprior council during Monday’s meeting. The town’s newly-hired top bureaucrat, Kevin McLlwain, has backed out of the job. Councillors got the news at an in-camera meeting Monday evening, the same day McLlwain was due to start as the town’s new chief administrative officer (CAO). “On behalf of the Town of Arnprior, I wish to inform that on March 12, 2012, a letter was received from Kevin McLlwain stating that he has to withdraw from the position as chief administrative officer with the town due to unexpected circumstances beyond his control,” reads a media release signed by acting mayor Ted Strike. Mayor David Reid is on vacation in Florida for the month. Reeve Walter Stack helped set up living accommodations for McLlwain, a 38-year-old Goderich native, and was as surprised as anyone to learn the news. He indicated that the reason is justifiable. “He has serious personal issues, family issues, that have left him with no choice,” Stack said. “He has all kinds of regrets that he’s not able to come.” He added that staff and council were “all excited” to have McLlwain on board and “get rolling.” This year’s budget suffered in a variety of ways because the town was without a permanent CAO. Increases to fees and charges weren’t discussed at committee and board levels because they were introduced late in the process, something that may have been better handled with a leader in place. Decisions on hiring an economic development officer, setting up a tourism booth, revamping the website, guiding a marketing strategy and more are back on hold now that McLlwain has turned down the position.

EMC news - The broomballers are coming. Arnprior, which is fast gaining a reputation for hosting major broomball events, is expecting as many as 2,500 people in town this weekend for the Ontario senior broomball championships. The tournament is anticipated to be a boon for the local hospitality industry. The games will be good practice for organizers, many of whom are playing key roles when Arnprior and neighbouring communities host the 2012 World Broomball Championships Oct. 29 to Nov. 3.

Arnprior, which has hosted major broomball events before, earned the admiration of the broomball world by expertly hosting the National championships on short notice in 2010 when Goose Bay, Labrador had to bow out. The provincials begin this Friday, March 16 at 6 a.m.. Games continue throughout the weekend, with the title games scheduled for Sunday. All the action occurs on the Nick Smith Centre rinks, with the exception of a spattering of games at the Pakenham arena. Several teams have strong contingents of local players. For more on the tournament, see the story on Page 19.

Happy St. Patty’s Day, everyone

EMC news - By the time you read this, the Arnprior Packers could be Eastern Ontario Junior B hockey Valley Division playoff champions for the first time in 14 years.

Local car dealer wins Encore lottery prize Derek Dunn

derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news – The tickets sat on his dresser for a couple of days before Percy Wall bothered to see if he’d won. The owner of a used car dealership on Daniel Street, Wall isn’t one for playing the lottery very often. Good thing he decided to get a Lotto 6/49 – with Encore – for the March 7 draw. Wall took home the $100,000 prize in that draw, $100,010 to be speciďŹ c. “I wasn’t that excited,â€? Wall said of the

moment he discovered that he held the winning ticket. “I said, ‘Oh, that’s nice.’ It didn’t hit me right away, I guess.� He chalks the win up to purchasing the tickets at the Ultramar on Madawaska Boulevard. “That’s the lucky store,� Wall said, chuckling. He drove down to Toronto on Monday to claim his prize. He’s had a lot of phone calls since then, mostly folks congratulating him,

saying it’s nice to see a local person win, and that he deserved it. Wall is taking it in stride, saying $100,000 isn’t all that much money, that it will barely cover the cost of a couple of nice cars. Even $1 million, he said, doesn’t go far these days. Two nice homes will cost more than that, he said. “I’ll pay some bills off with it. It helps to take a bit of pressure off,� he said. “It’s nice to have, but it’s not a lot of money anymore.�

New CAO bowed out because of ‘family issues’ fore the paper’s deadline for this week’s edition. He asked that details of the family issues not be published, and stressed that his decision has nothing to do with aspects of the job or town. “It has nothing to do with Arnprior. I love the town and the people have been extremely nice,� McLlwain said. “It has nothing to do with not wanting to be there. It’s a wonderful town and a tough thing to have to do.� He called the town staff a “wonderful team� of talented individuals.

From BACK TO SQUARE ONE, front McLlwain was let go Dec. 5, 2011 from a newly-created Central Huron CAO position. He was respected by staff and council in the municipality of 7,800 for getting good value-for-money on multiple infrastructure projects. Arnprior’s major infrastructure projects – the wastewater and water plants – are complete, though there is talk of building a new town hall. Like Arnprior’s last CAO, McLlwain was not considered a good ďŹ t for the new council in Central Huron. He was considered an excellent ďŹ t for Arnprior, Stack said, noting that McLlwain possessed the right skill set and personality to lead the small municipality. “We’ll have to regroup,â€? Stack said. “When (Reid) gets back, we’ll catch our breath and move forward.â€? The town spent under $20,000 on the hiring, which included as part of the interview process a formal dinner with councillors, staff and others. Stack said spending that little was “a giftâ€? when it comes to looking for quality candidates. By comparison the County of Renfrew recently spent about $70,000. CAOs typically earn more than $100,000 annually. Money aside, Stack said it’s an investment not an expense. The town will return to step one in the search, not hire a second choice from its original search.

WIN!

Semi crashes, spills fuel John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – Fuel that spilled from a semi-trailer truck that jack-knifed on Highway 417 just east of Arnprior Saturday morning was contained before it could seep into the Madawaska River. A representative from the Ontario environment ministry’s Spills Action Centre said it was informed of the spill that happened about 7 a.m. in the highway’s eastbound lanes just west of the Country Road 29 overpass. Fortunately, the spilled fuel was contained in the snow along the road and did not migrate from the immediate area, she said. She said the spill, which was from the truck’s fuel tanks and not its cargo, was cleaned up and taken away in the afternoon. The Arnprior fire department was called to the scene to help with the clean-up and road closure.

Arnprior firefighters check out a fire at a home on Arthur Street during the noon hour of March 7. Fortunately, they were alerted by a monitoring company reporting smoke detectors sounding in the home.

Firefighters respond to stove, electrical calls John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – Don’t leave food cooking on the stove unattended. Make sure your smoke detectors are working. If you smell smoke, don’t be shy about calling the fire department. Those are three messages stemming from two calls to the Arnprior Volunteer Fire Department March 7. Fire chief John Okum says firefighters responded to a report of smoke detectors sounding at an Arthur Street home in the west end of town during the noon hour last Wednesday. When firefighters found no one at home, they had to break the door to gain

entry and extinguish a fire caused by unattended food cooking on the stove. Fortunately, the owners had working smoke detectors that alerted their monitoring company, which in turn called the fire department. Okum said the fire caused minimal damage. There was some smoke damage and the door needed repairs, he noted. He said that it’s just another example of the importance of smoke detectors. The fire department sounded the town siren March 10 to remind residents about the resumption of daylight saving time and to check their detector batteries. Okum pointed out that leaving cooking on the stove is the number one cause of residential fires in the provincial.

The department was called out again on the evening of March 7 to check the smell of smoke in a John Street house in the area of the hospital. The firefighters arrived quickly as they were already in gear for a training exercise, he explained. A circuit-breaker in the home had flashed and the homeowner smelled smoke. The electrical problem didn’t turn out to be dangerous. Okum said that if a fuse or breaker kicks out, usually calling an electrician is the route to go. However, the homeowner was right to call firefighters when he smelled smoke. Early detection of electrical fires can save property and maybe even lives, he said.

EMC news – Police are searching for a ‘gas and dash’ artist after a driver fled after pumping gas into his car and failed to pay on River Road March 7. Police report that a four-door Mazda pulled into a gas station in McNab-Braeside at about 11 a.m. After pumping the gas, the male driver got back into the car and sped away. Officers patrolled the area but were unable to locate the car. OPP Constable Julie Lapointe is investigating. Meanwhile, Renfrew OPP report two licence plates were stolen off a vehicle on Usborne Street in McNab-Braeside. The plates were discovered missing on Thursday, March 8. There are no suspects. FRAUD CHARGE

A Montreal man was arrested after attempting to pass a fraudulent cheque valued in excess of $5,000 in return for stamps at Canada Post, police report. The suspect had been successful in this fraudulent activity elsewhere in Ontario and Canada Post employees were warned that he may attempt the same in other locations. The 48-year-old man was arrested at the scene and held for a bail hearing. He is charged with uttering a forged document. OPP Const. Katie MaGill is investigating.

High-speed coverage being expanded in McNab, other rural areas EMC news - The awarding of a contract to further extend high-speed Internet coverage in rural areas of Eastern Ontario has McNabBraeside mayor Mary Campbell optimistic most if not all township residents will have access to the service by this fall. Campbell said work on the broadband contract is expected to begin this spring and could be completed by fall or early 2013 by the latest. She said the first phases of the regional broadband program that wrapped up about two years ago gave between 65 and 75 per cent of McNab-Braeside residents access to high-speed service. It was subsidized by province and implemented in conjunction with service provision in Greater Madawaska and Admaston-Bromley “This should take care of the other 30 per cent,” she said.

The Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus announced earlier this month that it has awarded a Local Access Contract that will provide nearly 14,000 homes and businesses access to highspeed Internet. The area in question stretches across a region that includes southwestern portions of Renfrew County, northwestern parts of Frontenac County and a small portion of Lennox & Addington County. As part of the contract, Bell Aliant will provide a wired (DSL) solution that will expand broadband access in this large region spanning some 3,800 square kilometres. Bell Aliant’s network will rely on nine of the new Points of Presence (PoPs) within the zone. It will provide services ranging from 1.5 Mbps to up to 16 Mbps, depending on the customer location. “We are extremely pleased to announce this

contract,” said Mel Campbell, chair of the wardens’ caucus. “This contract will improve access to wired high-speed Internet to communities across three counties, including residents of the First Nations community of the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan.” Satellite services will provide the balance of high-speed coverage in the area. Satellite access remains the best fit technology for very sparsely populated areas or regions with difficult terrain. Contracts have already been signed to deliver high-speed via satellite at improved pricing across Eastern Ontario. This is the fifth of several contracts that will be awarded to deliver high-speed Internet through wired and fixed wireless services as part of the Eastern Ontario regional broadband project. The $170 million project is funded by

federal, provincial and municipal governments and private sector investment. Work to build a massive, 5,500-km fibre optic network is already underway. “We are making excellent progress in building a new regional network that will allow our residents and businesses to prosper,” said Dave Burton, chair of Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN). “Connecting to the Internet with higher speeds will open new doors for our communities in terms of quality of life and economic growth.” EORN is a not-for-profit organization established by the EOWC to manage all contracts awarded as part of the project. The high-speed service will enable users to stream video and other innovative applications that will support various sectors, including business, health and education.

OPP has ‘still lots to do’ to deter distracted drivers EMC news – The Arnprior OPP has joined other detachments around the province in releasing results of the distracted driving campaign that indicated 350 drivers were charged a day during the blitz. OPP officers across the province charged 2,454 drivers with distraction-related offences from Feb. 13 to 19, or 350 violations each day. “We’d prefer the number of drivers charged each day was zero,” said OPP Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey. “Although we have indeed had some success with our campaign, this is a clear indication that we have a great deal of work to do yet.”

Nearly 12 months ago the OPP added distracted driving to their list of top contributing factors in fatal collisions. It joined impaired driving, aggressive driving and non-compliance with occupant restraint laws. Using the lessons learned from a study in the U.S. related to distraction enforcement, the OPP implemented a comprehensive awareness and enforcement campaign called “Phone in One Hand, Ticket in the Other.” Campaigns were launched last May, July, September of 2011 and finally Feb. 13-19. Each campaign included a week of awareness information through the media followed by a

THE TOWNSHIP OF LANARK HIGHLANDS

week of focused enforcement. The number of distraction related offences initiated by OPP officers increased 110 per cent compared to the year previous. The number of fatal collisions caused by an inattentive driver decreased by 25 per cent. In the first seven weeks of 2012, nine deaths on OPP patrolled roads were attributed to an inattentive driver. That’s more than alcohol and speed combined. “Our efforts to reduce fatal collisions are not limited to specific campaign dates,” said Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander of the Highway Safety Division.

“Our strict enforcement of distraction laws are a priority every day. These deaths are completely preventable and we’ll continue to encourage voluntary compliance for the right reasons.” Under the Highway Traffic Act of Ontario, using a cell phone or device capable of texting while driving can result in a fine of $155. Also, watching an entertainment device can result in a fine of $110. Other forms of distracted driving can result in a charge of Careless Driving with fines ranging from $400 to $2,000, a possible licence suspension of up to two years and/or a jail term of not more than six months.

Arnprior to host district Sears festival on its home stage EMC events – Arnprior District High School will host the Upper Ottawa Valley Sears Ontario Drama Festival Tuesday, March 27. In a departure from previous years’ practice, the district festival for this area’s schools will be held at ADHS instead of Pembroke’s Festival Hall. The Upper Ottawa festival, which in the past has run three nights with plays from almost all county high schools, will feature one night at ADHS this year. The evening will include four plays from

three schools – ADHS, RCI and Opeongo. In a release, ADHS says it is proud to host the festival in its gymnatorium. The province-wide drama festival is in its 66th year of celebrating excellence in high school drama. The Upper Ottawa Valley District Sears Festival will start at 6:30 p.m. with the public encouraged to attend and show their support for the students. One show will be named the outstanding production, advancing it to the regional level

festival April 16-21 at Perth and District Collegiate Institute. The top regional productions will move on to the Provincial Showcase, to be held this year in North Bay May 9 to 12. STUDENT PLAYWRIGHT

The ADHS play is a student-written and student-directed offering called ‘From The Top’ The play is written by Evelyn Popiel, a recent ADHS graduate who is now attending Queen’s

University. The play is directed by Grade 11 student Caroline Popiel. From the Top features seven characters director Tony, stage manager Brook and five quirky actors - Peter, Kate, Amy, Bonnie and Clyde. It follows a crazy, destructive dress rehearsal just two days before opening night. According to director Caroline Popiel, “the cast has worked hard to make some really funny and entertaining characters. I’m really happy I had the opportunity to direct this play.”

OPINION

Your Community Newspaper

EDITORIAL

Farm safety goes far beyond barnyards and back roads Residents of Arnprior and the surrounding region know well the importance of our agricultural community. For many people, while they may not actually live on a farm, their connection to farm life is never far away. Most residents who reside in our townships, villages and towns have countless tales to tell of their own rural heritage, perhaps visiting grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins and close friends. With a thriving agricultural community in our backyard, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that Arnprior and area residents take a special interest in Canadian Agricultural Safety Week that is marked

March 11 to 17. The theme of the three-year Canadian Agricultural Safety campaign is Plan*Farm*Safety. Two years ago the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; component of the campaign featured safety walkabouts and comprehensive planning for safety. Last year light was thrown on the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; theme and the initiative stressed the importance of documentation and training. The Canadian Federation of Agriculture reports that this year the emphasis is on the third leg of program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Safety.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This year the farming community is being asked to pay special attention to assessment, improvement and further development of ex-

isting safety systems. The year-long safety campaign is being launched this week, and its success will rely heavily on participation. The bulk of the material presented will be directed at farmers, but anyone who spends any time on a farm should make a point of learning and appreciating all the risks inherent with farm life. Farms can be a fun place to visit, but require special attention. From respecting the hazards of powerful farm equipment to exercising caution around livestock, farm safety is everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility. Parents, in particular, should do all they

can to teach their children the importance of diligence when visiting farm properties. Canadian Agricultural Safety Week is delivered by the Canadian Federation of Agriculture and the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association in partnership with Farm Credit Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. To learn more, the public is invited to check out the website www.planfarmsafety.ca. Make certain your next farm visit is a safe one. And remember, as always, to thank a farmer for the food you eat. They remain a vital, and valued, part of the fabric of our community.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

How do you get rid of the little red bugs? To the Editor: My common-law wife and I reside in a house on the edge of Arnprior in the McNab-Braeside Township area. For the last 3 to 4 years we have had a terrible time with the arrival of these pesky little reddish coloured bugs that come at the first sign of warm weather and stay until the early winter. We are wondering if this is a common bug for the Arnprior area and if so has a research study been performed to determine their origin and best strategies and techniques for their elimination. We have hundreds if not thousands of them on the outside walls and windowsills. They crawl up the sides of walls usually on the south side facing the sun and they do fly but not any great distance. They only seem to be able to fly short distances. They measure a mere millimetre or less in size and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to bite, but when you squash them they will leave a nasty red stain. They tend to aggregate in large numbers as well. We have discovered a nest of them on oc-

casions located in an empty lot next door and have managed to exterminate them by setting them on fire with gasoline. This canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be used on the walls of the house and windowsills of course. We have tried using soapy water and sprays from hardware stores with no success. They are a nuisance and would very much want to get rid of them. We have spoken to neighbours and they are having the same problems. We have even noticed them accumulating in areas around the town of Arnprior as well such as the car wash, the mall and around the sides of buildings in the centre core. This seems to be an on going problem in the Arnprior area and any advice or helpful hints that could be offered by Town of Arnprior and the area would go a long way in keeping Arnprior and the community clean all year around. Thank you for your attention and consideration in this matter. Micheal Hill, Madeleine Sutherland Poole Street

Grove property prevented from multiple units, according to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;protectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of nature and heritage To the Editor: This refers to the article â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OMB hearing pushed backâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (March 8, Chronicle Guide EMC), which states â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś which as been slated for residential development for decades now.â&#x20AC;? Perhaps the EMC author of this statement is unaware that the developer Don Johnston was restricted from building multiple units on the subject property, this restriction (covenant) expiring in 2005. Another point worthy of clarification is the statement: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hearing is expected to go ahead on April 18.â&#x20AC;? In fact, April 18 is a pre-

hearing conference (not the formal hearing) to set out the expert witnesses each appellant will be bringing to the OMB hearing. By the way, this article refers to us as â&#x20AC;&#x153;opponents,â&#x20AC;? while I myself see my role as â&#x20AC;&#x153;protectorâ&#x20AC;? of the natural and cultural heritage. I am not an opponent of development in itself, but wish to see development with protection of â&#x20AC;&#x153;significantâ&#x20AC;? woodland and wildlife habitat extension of Gillies Grove per the Official Plan.

Let special interest groups the CBC supports pay its $1.5 billion cost and white, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even make an attempt to hide his sadness and disappointment of his countrymenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crushing rejection of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;natural governing party.â&#x20AC;? Ashen-face and quiet, it seemed for once that he had nothing to say. Another example: The 14th annual March for Life on Parliament Hill last year drew about 15,000 participants. The previous year it was 12,000, and the year before that 10,000. It has now become too big for the CBC to ignore as it was used to doing. Yet its report last year said â&#x20AC;&#x153;5,000â&#x20AC;? participants at variance with the reports of other broadcasters. Even when confronted with evidence that its report was wrong, the CBC refused to issue a correction. And that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first time. The truth is that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation no longer represents either the Canadian identity or

the interests of the Canadian public at large. It has devolved into an expensive, taxpayer-supported mouthpiece of a few

small special-interest groups. Let its supporters support it, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to stop dragging the rest of us deeper

into national debt because of it. Chris Waclawik Arnprior

To the Editor: Skippy Hale (in her letter to the editor, March 1, Chronicle Guide EMC, page 9) says that the CBC is â&#x20AC;&#x153;free of government interference,â&#x20AC;? Yet the CBC receives $1.5 billion every year from the government. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about $100 less from your potential federal income tax refund. This is more than enough to make the CBC part of our government, not independent of it. The CBC is no more free from government interferences than any Canadian household which must depend on welfare to survive. The letter writer also says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reports are evenly presented and without bias.â&#x20AC;? Yet everyday experience show the opposite is true. One example: In the late evening of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last federal election, Peter Mansbridge, his news studio decorated in his usual favorite red

Combine public, Catholic schools in rural areas To the Editor: With regard to recent articles on the future of Catholic education in Ontario, there is a significant issue pertaining to small towns and rural areas that is worthy of discussion and debate. Let me preface my comments by stating that I am a high school teacher in the Ontario public education system. That being said, my comments are most certainly not intended to be a critique or condemnation of the Catholic education system. Our town has both a small public high school and a small Catholic high school. Both schools face a similar dilemma in that their enrolment limits the courses that can be offered. Demographics clearly show that in many small towns across Ontario, student populations are considerably smaller than they used to be, with no significant increase on the horizon. To the detriment of our students, neither of our high schools can offer many of the courses provided in larger centres, particularly at the senior (Grade 11 and 12) level. The reality is that if the two small secondary schools in our community were combined into one, the breadth and depth of curriculum that could be offered to our students would improve significantly. In many rural areas of Ontario, elementary schools play a vital role in the local community.While many of these schools have disappeared for economic reasons, limited enrolment in the remaining schools often results in combined-grade classrooms that seem somewhat reminiscent of the one-room schoolhouse era.In those areas that have small public and Catholic elementary schools, combining the schools could reduce the number of split-grade classes and perhaps improve the chances of retaining a community school. I readily admit that I do not have all the answers. My goal is to spark debate, not to offend. Perhaps there is a way that education could be provided in small town and rural settings in a more effective, efficient and economical fashion, while still taking into account the spiritual needs of students of all faiths. I am well aware of the complexities that this issue presents with respect to various religions, school boards, teaching federations, our constitution, etc. I recall discussing this topic with a retired MPP. While he agreed with my concerns, he warned me that such a contentious topic could be political suicide for a governing provincial party. True leadership will put the needs of our students before the needs of a political party. With this, I turn to our elected provincial officials to initiate the non-partisan debate that this topic requires. Terry Edwards Renfrew

Arnprior minor hockey association needs executive members To the Editor: The Arnprior Minor Hockey Association (AMHA) at its AGM on March 27 will be seeking new members. Many of us have done the drive to our local Nick Smith Centre and other Valley rinks for the simple pleasure of watching our sons and daughters play the game of minor hockey. Whether it be from IP to Major Midget levels, all hockey parents have shared in the excitement and fulfillment that the game gives us.

However, what is often overlooked while we sit on those cold benches on Saturday mornings is the tireless dedication of a small group of volunteers that make up the Arnprior Minor Hockey Association executive. Out of the 13 existing members, many have been long-serving parent volunteers who have spent countless hours tending to the different and necessary functions that make up the

executive. Unfortunately, for some of those members, 2011-2012 will be their last season and the association will be in need of new executive members. So there will be vacancies for various positions. It is important to note that without a sufficient number of volunteers, it is very difficult to provide and sustain an adequate minor hockey program for the young people of

our community to enjoy. Please come on out on Tuesday, March 27 at 7 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre and support your AMHA by becoming an association executive member and help shape minor hockey for our present and future players. Michel D’Amours Arnprior

Tory minister’s comments, legislation appalling

Clearing up what the local OSPCA officer does

To the Editor: I’m appalled by Public Safety Minister Vic Toews’ comments in the House of Commons, when he accused all Canadians who oppose the government’s invasive and warrantless online spying scheme, Bill C-30, of siding with child pornographers. This is rhetoric of the most outrageous kind. In fact, according to a poll by the government’s own privacy commissioner, 8 out of 10 Canadians oppose legislation that would grant ‘authorities’ warrantless access to our private information. Even members of Toews’ own party are against this costly invasion of privacy. I demand that Minister Toews publicly apologize to all Canadians for his comments. Furthermore, I am calling for the government to publicly commit to amend its online spying legislation so that any new surveillance powers are based on a clear need for new powers, demonstrated by verifiable evidence. I also expect the government to commit to removing the warrantless access provisions in the legislation, insert privacy safeguards and enforcement, and provide a clear plan to offset the estimated $80,000,000 this will cost Canadian families and businesses. I encourage every Canadian to join the 112,000+ Canadians who have already voiced their opposition to Bill C-30 by signing the Stop Online Spying petition at: www.stopspying. ca. Johanna Mathieu Renfrew

To the editor: During the past five years, I have been asked many questions about what I do, mostly from children, when I give talks in the schools. The following are answers to these questions, in hopes of imparting awareness of the importance of responsible pet ownership and what the role of an OSPCA agent is: • What does the OSPCA do? The object of the Ontario SPCA is to facilitate and provide for the prevention of cruelty to animals and their protection and relief therefrom. • What do I do? I investigate all incident reports of animal cruelty and/or abuse, and educate the public on animal welfare. I also take appropriate action, if needed, under authority of the OSPCA Act, the Criminal Code or other animal related laws. • What constitutes distress? Under the OSPCA Act, ‘distress’” means the state of being in need of proper care, water, food or shelter or being injured, sick or in pain or suffering or being abused or subject to unnecessary hardship, privation or neglect.

• What should I look for if I think there is abuse or neglect? One of the most common, and visual, concerns is if the animal is too thin. Just seeing a hint of ribs can mean anything from age to activity, etc. However, an animal that is too thin will show the ribs clearly, the spine or backbone, the hip bones, loss of muscle mass around the neck, head, rear-end, etc. Another common concern is when a dog is tied up to a tree with no water, food or shelter available. It has to have proper shelter, that is insulated and off the ground, free of debris with a lead or chain that is a minimum of three metres long. Fresh water has to be available at all times in a spill-proof container. In the winter if a water heater is not used, then fresh, clean snow should be available. Horses and cattle have to have shelter from the elements in the way of a loafing shed, barn, trees or structure. I often get animals that have been abandoned by their owner(s) when they moved. Long-haired pets need a lot of grooming to prevent matting, which can seriously effect the movement, the skin,

hygiene, etc. Not clipping the nails of animals can seriously impede their walking. Dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, birds, etc. need attention to this, as the nail could grow around into the paw or pad of the animal, causing a lot of pain. The same goes for horses, donkeys, goats, etc., as they also can have the lasting effects of not being trimmed regularly. There is a basic Standards of Care (Ontario Regulation 60/69, Standards of Care, of the OSPCA Act) that is applicable to all animals. Who do I call? OSPCA or bylaw enforcement? The OSPCA responds to all cases of cruelty, abuse and abandonment. We do not respond to animals at large, animal bites, barking dogs unless abandoned, or animals hit on the road. In conclusion, while I gave only a brief idea of what to look for if abuse or cruelty is suspected, if there are any concerns about an incident and if you are not sure, don’t hesitate to call the Arnprior Humane Society (613-623-0916), where all calls will be forwarded to my office.

The male red-wings are back, females to arrive later EMC lifestyle - I suspect you are familiar with the distinctive songs of Red-winged Blackbirds. Their raspy “oh-ka-reeee, oh-ka-reeee” that arises from local marshes and roadside ditches is like no other birdsong. A jet-black body and blazing red shoulders make the singers readily recognizable. In recent days Red-winged Blackbirds have arrived in numbers, and their vibrant choruses now greet the dawn. But not all Red-winged Blackbirds are black and red, nor do all sing with pugilistic intensity. Only males bear these traits; females are brown and streaked, looking more like giant sparrows than blackbirds, and utter little more than loud “check” notes. Currently, female Red-winged Blackbirds are nowhere to be seen. They are still farther south, and will not appear here for another week or two.

So why do the females not arrive with the males? The main reason is likely even though the spring equinox fast approaches, there undoubtedly will be some trying weather to come. Cold temperatures and even snow are likely to occur before the full embrace of Michael Runtz spring is on the land. As eggs will not be laid Nature’s Way for several weeks, there is no reason to come back this early. Why then do the males return so early? The reason is simple: the males want to grab the best real estate before it is gone. Female Red-winged Blackbirds certainly

enjoy a good-looking mate that sings well, but they also like to place their nest in a territory rich in food and protective cover. And not just one female will saddle up to a male that holds a substantial piece of real estate. Red-winged Blackbirds are polygynous birds – one male has multiple mates. In our region, an attractive male might harbour up to half a dozen females in his territory. Thus, the pressure is on a male to claim and protect a rich territory, for he will sire many offspring that carry his genes into the future. Studies have shown that the male’s song reveals important information to females and to other males. While a male’s songs might sound standardized and repetitive to our ears, each is slightly different from the next. The total sum of all the subtle variations is called a repertoire. In many polygynous species, including

Marsh Wrens, the size of the repertoire correlates with the size of the harem. The more complex the song, the more successful a male can be in attracting mates. The male’s song also informs other males of his claim to a territory. By singing every day, a male keeps other males at bay and eventually attracts females. The importance of song in keeping territories has been well documented. When male Red-wings were silenced by puncturing their air sac, they lost their territories to other males. When their air sac healed, the males regained their voice and most reclaimed their turf. Now, for readers who are considering taking singing lessons, be aware that song repertoires can be large; Brown Thrashers can sing more than 1,300 ditties. The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

Normal warm-up expected this spring: Weather Network EMC lifestyle - Following an exceptionally warm and generally dry winter, Eastern Ontarions can expect a normal and gradual warm-up this spring, says The Weather Network in its outlook for March through May. The unusually warm winter can be attributed to several factors, one of which is the

jet stream, which stayed further north than usual during the winter months in Canada, keeping the coldest air bottled up over the Arctic. The deeper cold and heavier snow normally attributed to a Canadian winter has instead been felt over parts of Europe and Asia. “While winter in Canada

was relatively dry and warm for most of the country due to the jet stream pattern, it doesn’t necessarily mean the same for the spring months,” said Chris Scott, director of meteorology for The Weather

Network. “March tends to be a winter month in most of Canada, and the potential is still there for significant snow. Overall though, we are expecting a fairly typical warm-up

through the spring months.” From the Ontario-Manitoba border east to Atlantic Canada, near-normal temperatures and precipitation are expected for most regions. Above-normal temperatures are expected for

Northwestern Ontario, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. Central Ontario through to Montreal can expect abovenormal precipitation as the storm track is expected to reside across the region.

Local engineer earns national award Christopher Skarica named engineering professional of the year for his cable communications work John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – A McNab-Braeside resident has received a prestigious engineering award. Christopher Skarica of the ARRIS Group has been named the 2012 Canadian Engineering Professional of the Year by the Society of Cable Communications Engineers Canada. The award honors outstanding technical achievements and contributions made to the advancement of the cable telecommunications industry by a Canadian engineering professional. Skarica will be honored at a special luncheon March 28 during the SCTE Canadian Summit in Toronto. “I am very honoured, thankful, and deeply humbled in receiving this prestigious award,” he said Tuesday. “I am very fortunate to have had the assistance and guidance of my family, friends, and many industry veterans over the past two decades. Without them, I would not have achieved this.” It shows what someone from an immigrant family can do in Canada, he added, noting his parents, who were wonderful role models, fled Europe “to escape Hitler.” Skarica grew up in Hamilton and worked for more than 20 years in the advance engineering and senior management sides of the cable in-

dustry with such companies as Maclean-Hunter, Rogers, Cogeco Cable, Nortel and Huawei Technologies. He joined the Atlanta-based ARRIS group in March 2010 as its Canadian Account vicepresident of strategic accounts. He sells equipment and innovative solutions to cable operations all over the world from his home base on Scheel Drive, where he lives with his wife, Julie, who runs JCS Stables. It is the first time an engineering employee of a technology supplier company has been honored with the SCTE Canada Award. While concentrating in sales, “I’m still a true engineer,” Skarica said. He was nominated for the award by longtime Rogers stalwart Len McArthur who was one of his mentors. McArthur noted Skarica has a long list of accomplishments in the cable and high tech fields, including many engineering firsts. Among his achievement is the design and implementation of three new Cogeco head-end facilities in the Renfrew, Smiths Falls and Sarnia areas that resolved major cable problems. His handiwork can be seen on the Pinnacle tower outside of Renfrew. Over the years, he has played key roles in the development of new technologies for cable TV networks, including dual band and multi-

beam satellite reception, two-way optical and many other specialized innovations. Skarica is a frequent presenter at industry gatherings, has several patents, and has authored and contributed to multiple published industry writings. In his nomination letter, McArthur wrote that Skarica “is one of the most skilled and knowledgeable end-to-end technology and network specialists our country has ever produced.” He has “exceptionally strong talent and experience in building and guiding emerging multiple system operation (MSO) technologies into successful business models and working deployments,” he added. “He is highly respected throughout the global MSO industry for his dedication and commitment to the furthering of MSO technologies, his team player attitude, tireless work ethic, and for his highly unique and intimate understanding of end-to end cable network architectures, technologies, and services. “He is a special talent the entire industry should be proud of, and I am proud to say he is one of us, an extremely nice and gentle man from Canada.” The news of Skarica’s award, announced last week, has been written up in the Wall Street Journal, Yahoo Finance, CED magazine, Market Watch and many other media outlets.

Beware: Ottawa, Madawaska river levels on the rise EMC news - Ontario Power Generation (OPG) is advising that flows and levels along the Ottawa and Madawaska Rivers and tributaries are steadily increasing and are expected to continue to do so because to the warmer weather and precipitation forecasted over the coming week. Ice conditions on area waterways are beginning to deteriorate with the warmer weather and area residents are advised no one should be venturing out onto ice covered waterways, “This unusual winter has created very dan-

gerous ice and water conditions across the province,” said Frank Chiarotto, senior vicepresident of OPG’s Hydro-Thermal Operations group. “Some regions still have ice, but it’s thinner than normal, while other areas are already experiencing spring flows of water. “The best advice is to Stay Clear and Stay Safe, especially on lakes and rivers where there are hydro dams and stations,” he added. “We all know the kids are anxious to get out and explore once the weather warms up, but it’s up to the grownups to make sure March Break

is a safe time for everyone,” Chiarotto said. Learn more about safety around dams and hydroelectric stations by visiting: opg.com/ watersafety. For weekly water level updates, visit Madawaska River: www.opg.com/safety/water/river/madawaska/ and Ottawa River: www.opg. com/safety/water/river/ottawa/, To obtain further water level and flow information for the Ottawa River, visit the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board at: http:// www.ottawariver.ca/.

The OPP also chimed in this week with a warning about thin ice and rushing water. As the mild temperatures move into the area, the OPP caution parents and outdoor enthusiast that the ice is quickly diminishing and rushing waters will soon be seen. Parents need to supervise and warn their children of the dangers of playing near waterways, say police. “The water is cold, fast moving and banks are slippery making areas near rivers, lakes, ponds and even streams dangerous. Be careful and avoid these areas.”

EMC sports - With the help of its customers, Arnprior Home Hardware is throwing its support behind local snowboarder John Leslie, a member of the Canadian National Para team. Store owner Neil Slater has arranged for 50,000 Aeroplan points to be donated in Leslieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. Leslie, an Arnprior District High School student and top athlete despite losing a leg to cancer when he was 10, has worked at Home Hardware part-time for the past ďŹ ve years. Leslie agreed it would be a great fundraising opportunity to rafďŹ&#x201A;e off tickets to win the points. Tickets cost $5 each for a chance to win the points, which are enough for two people to ďŹ&#x201A;y anywhere in North America. Even if a person does not have an Aeroplan card, they can still buy a ticket and if they win either donate the points to back to Leslie, or sign up for an Aeroplan card for free.

The money being raised will help Leslie with his snowboarding ambitions. The funds will go towards ďŹ&#x201A;ights, hotels, race fees, equipment, gas, and other expenses of traveling. So far this year Leslie has competed in a World Championship race in France, coming in eighth. He also went to Quebec City to train with the national team, in what he described as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;amazing experience that helped my riding.â&#x20AC;? Leslie competed in a smaller race in Moonstone and came ďŹ rst. His last event of the season is scheduled for the end of March in Calgary. It is a World Cup event. After the race, the snowboarders are doing charity races in Banff and then driving to Whistler for team tryouts and training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been an amazing season and I am so thankful I have had the support of Arnprior behind me,â&#x20AC;? said Leslie.

Centre, Casey Doner of Arnprior takes a breather before a faceoff in the win that gave the Packers 3-1 series lead against the Blue Wings.

Packers pull within a game of the Valley Division crown JOHN CARTER John.carter@metroland.com

EMC sports - The Arnprior Packers rebounded smartly Sunday from a humbling defeat at home to take control of their Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League Valley Division final series. The Packers doubled the Perth Blue Wings 4-2 in Perth to take a 3-1 lead in the best-ofseven series. That put them in a position to capture their first Valley playoff title in 14 years Wednesday (after press deadline) on home ice in game five of the series. Perth had jumped back into the series Friday at the Nick Smith Centre with a 6-2 victory to cut Arnprior’s series lead to 2-1. Packer coach Bill Griese said the game was

a wake-up call for his team, being the first loss they had suffered since November with a full roster. “They outplayed us in every way,” he said. “We were doing things that were really uncharacteristic of how we can play … we weren’t lazy, but we got away from the simple things that it takes to win games.” However, when the coaching staff challenged the players to get back to the basics Sunday, they did just that. After allowing a goal by Perth star Brett Madigan less than two minutes in, the Packers replied with three goals by Derek Lowry, Jake Primeau and Teddy Suckow in less than five minutes to take control of the game. The teams split two goals in the second pe-

riod, with Taylor Collins scoring for Arnprior. While happy with his team’s play in the first two periods, Griese said he was most impressed with the Packers’ third period when they stymied all efforts by Perth to get back in the game. Arnprior outshot Perth 44-31. In last Friday’s 6-2 loss, former Blue Wing Dan Weir started the scoring for Arnprior, but Perth tallied the next six goals before Mitch Parker scored with less than two minutes left. Arnprior followed up an 8-5 win in the opener with a 3-2 game-two victory in Perth, as Parker Davies, Suckow and Collins scored and goalie Matt Couvrette stopped 23 of 24 shots. The Packers are being led offensively by the line of Collins, Davies and Derrin Lehoux,

who leads the team with 15 points. Arnprior is also getting offense from its defense, particularly Primeau and Suckow. Griese had special praise for the Packers shutdown defenceman Shane Smith. “He is showing why he was named the league’s best defenceman,” he said. If Arnprior won Wednesday (they were leading 1-0 after the first period as the paper went to bed), they will face the winner of the Metro Division final, which Gatineau was leading 3-2 over Ottawa West. That series will end either Thursday or Friday. If Arnprior lost Wednesday, game six will be played this Friday, March 16 in Perth at 7:45 p.m., with game seven, if necessary, in Arnprior on Sunday, March 18 at 7:30 p.m.

DISAPPOINTED â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very disappointed in this news, as it was great helping out the little ones,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of the problem is the only ice time they have available is on a Monday of the March Break and most tournaments are held on weekends.â&#x20AC;? She acknowledged the tournament has always been in collaboration with the WCMHA since that was where her son played most of his hockey. But, she has decided to put her efforts into helping other players in another way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have decided to put the extra money towards sponsoring a West Carleton hockey player that is playing AAA hockey with the Ottawa Valley Titans. It is very expensive for families to play at that level and the money will be well spent helping out a WC family,â&#x20AC;? Brunette explained, adding the fund already sponsors Colby Cochrane who played for the Major Bantam Ottawa Valley Titans this year. A summer golf tournament is the only fundraiser for the Jon Brunette Memorial Fund and that will be continuing this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will still be holding the Jon Brunette Memorial Golf Tournament at Irish Hills again this year. This year will be the 10th annual golf tournament and I am so pleased that we still have the support of Jonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends and family after all these years,â&#x20AC;? Brunette said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as I have this support for the only fundraiser for Jonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fund, I will continue to support West Carleton hockey players in Jonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory.â&#x20AC;?

EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C;A memorial hockey tournament aimed at young hockey players wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be hitting the ice in West Carleton over the March Break. The Jon Brunette Memorial Initiation Fun Day Hockey Tournament, which drew more than 100 first-year hockey players (four and five-year-olds) from across Ottawa, Arnprior and the Valley to the W. Erskine Johnston Arena in Carp, has been cancelled this year due to lack of participation. According to West Carleton Minor Hockey Association (WCMHA) president Sherry Malloy, the association was having difficulty getting West Carleton or Arnprior Initiation teams to sign up for the tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many initiation level tournaments are hosted on weekend, no one is interested in a weekday over March Break,â&#x20AC;? Malloy stated. The tournament was sponsored by the Jon Brunette Memorial Fund and hosted by the WCMHA. The Memorial Fund was established to honour the memory of Jon Brunette, who lost his life in a snowmobile collision on March 17, 2003. He played his minor hockey in the WCMHA system (1990-1998) and with the Ottawa Valley Titans (1998-1999). He then played three years with the Arnprior Packers Jr. B Hockey Club. The fund paid for all the trophies, drinks and the printing of the program for the tournament, but the tournament is not a fundraiser for the fund. A summer golf tournament is the only fundraiser for the Jon Brunette Memorial

Fund. Brunetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Val, said she is saddened the tournament wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happening this year.

Broomball teams flocking to Arnprior for provincial tourney

R0011312280/0315

Your Community Newspaper

West Carleton team among the title hopefuls this weekend EMC sports – Arnprior should expect an influx of about 2,500 people this weekend as the town plays host to the Ontario senior broomball championships. Fifty teams will compete in seven categories at the three-day tournament (March 16-18) at the Nick Smith Centre, with some early games in Pakenham. “It will be good for the economy,” said Arnprior recreation director Glenn Arthur. “It will bring a lot of people to town.” He noted it will also be a useful runthrough in preparation for Arnprior and neighbouring communities hosting the world broomball championships Oct. 30 to Nov. 3. Arnprior has held major broomball tournaments before, including the 2010 Nationals on short notice when Goose Bay had to drop out as host. Both Arnprior and Carleton Place hosted the tournament several times in the 1990s The Valley’s ‘Mr. Broomball’, George Brown, said the tournament will be a “shot in the arm” for the local economy and will also give local fans an opportunity to take in top quality broomball. “It’s a major tournament,” he said, noting the elite teams are vying for a place at the 2013 National tournament in Regina. There will be players, coaches and supporters attending from Windsor to Hawkesbury, he added, Brown pointed out that Ottawa and the Valley are a hotbed of broomball and several teams will have a strong local contingent. One of the favourites in the six-team

elite men’s division is the Ottawa Nationals, the defending national champions. The Nationals have several Valley players, including Jamie Dewar of Arnprior. The squad, coached by Steve Norman, includes several area players from the renowned but now defunct Corkery team. The Nationals don’t begin play until 9 a.m. Saturday. The elite women’s division will feature five teams, including the Eastern champions McMillans, which has been sponsored by Arnprior’s Wally McMillan of McMillan Sand and Gravel since 1972. The three-time national titlists, coached by Kevin Kealey, will be in tough as they are in a rebuilding year. They open Friday at 5 p.m. West Carleton and the Pakenhambased Bulldogs are among the nine teams in the intermediate men’s division. Both play in the highly competitive Pakenham league. Brown manages the West Carleton team, which is coached by Rob Munro. Among its players are goalie Jeff More, Kyle Killeen, Jamie Finner, Mark Recoskie, and Landon and Simon James. The Bulldogs are coached by Benjie Sonnenburge and are led by goalie Ryan Dalgity, Tim McGrath, Scott Wall, and Jeff and Steven Cavanagh. The Bulldogs play their first game Friday at 7 a.m., while West Carleton opens with a 10 a.m. game. There are also nine intermediate women’s teams, including the Ravens, Stingers, Misfits and Lost Sheep. The eight co-ed teams include Eastern Ontario entries from Kingston, Crysler, Russell and Golden Lake, with a Pikwakanagan squad called Firestorm

formed a couple of years ago. One of the area’s most well-known teams is the Valley Gamblers, who are among nine entries in the men’s masters (40 and over) division. Players include 64-year-old Stan Klosowski of Arnprior and 61-year-old Brown, who plays for as well as manages the team. “We just go up and down our wing … we keep it simple,” he said of the older players. Since the team was formed in 1997, the Valley Gamblers have won the Provincials six times. Coached by Mike Erasmo, the Gamblers recently captured the Pakenham league title. They play their first game at 11 a.m. Friday in Pakenham. It’s the first time at the provincials for the Ladies Masters (35 and over), division, which features four teams. “I think it will grow,” said Brown. “There’s a lot of interest … four teams is a good start.” The men’s masters division has been has operating for more than 10 years and has grown to nine teams qualifying for the provincials, he noted. Brown said the formation of a juvenile loop in Ottawa has helped provide an influx of younger players into the Pakenham league. To fit in the close to 100 games in the double-knockout tournament, action begins at 6 a.m. this Friday and runs late into the evening. There will be games Saturday from 6 a.m. to past midnight, with the title games Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fans can keep up-to-date online as the results and other information will be posted quickly on the website www. broomball.ca.

ADHS grad chosen as Ottawa area’s ‘Rose of Tralee’ John Carter

ly as a financial advisor for farm clients, and is also keenly interested in politics. She succeeds Kate Scott as Ottawa area’s ‘Rose’. Contestants must be between 17 and 28, single and of Irish origin. The Rose of Tralee Festival was initially conceived as a way to bring Irish descendants back to Ireland, as well as a means of boosting the local economy and regenerating the town of Tralee. It has since expanded to include centres from across the globe including Ottawa, which selected its first ‘Rose’ in 2009. The festival derived its name from a 19th century love story written by William Mulchinock, a 19th century merchant, for Mary O’Connor. The song includes the lyrics, “lovely and fair as the rose of summer, it was not her beauty alone that won me, oh no, ‘twas the truth in her eyes ever dawning.” As reflected in the song, the focus of the festival is on the personal accomplishments of the ‘Rose’ and her ability to act as a role model and ambassador for her area and for the festival. Eastman was chosen from among six contestants by a panel of judges, including Metroland Media reporter Desmond Devoy of the Carleton Place Almonte Canadian Gazette EMC. For more on the festival, visit www. roseoftralee.ca.

EMC news – A former Arnprior District High School student is this year’s Ottawa area Rose of Tralee. Avaleigh Eastman of Kinburn was chosen Sunday at the Irish Ambassador’s residence in Ottawa as this area’s representative in the run-up to International Rose of Tralee Festival in Ireland. As the Ottawa area’s ‘Rose’, Eastman will be sent to Portlaoise, Ireland in June for the regional Rose of Tralee finals, and if among the 25 or so chosen from about 70 contestants, will return to Tralee in County Kerry, Ireland in August for the international festival. Raised on the Centuryholm dairy farm in Kinburn in a well-known West Carleton family, Eastman has a passion for agriculture. She was an avid member of the 4-H Community Club, completing projects in field crops, showing dairy calves and scrapbooking, and attending numerous leadership conferences. Avaleigh, the daughter of John and Jennifer Eastman, represented the Ottawa-Carleton Plowmen’s Association in 2010 as Queen of the Furrow and continues to volunteer with the organization as a director and webmaster. Her father is a director with the Arnprior Federation of Agriculture. The 22-year-old is also involved with

The family of the late Yvonne Fleury would like to take this time to sincerely thank all our friends, neighbours and relatives.

We would like to thank the doctors and the nursing staff in emergency at the RVH and the Paramedics that attended the house. A special thank you to the following people: Father Holley, the alter servers, and the choir at St. Francis Xavier Church; the CWL for the luncheon served at the reception after the service and to Neil Chaput for being the pallbearer. We wish to convey our thanks to the Goulet Funeral Home, with special mention to Natasha Goulet for their friendly, compassionate, comforting and discreet direction concerning all funeral arrangements.

They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal; But neither time nor reason, Will change the way I feel. For no one knows the heartache, That lies behind our smiles, No one knows how many times, We have broken down and cried.

Ball hockey returns in spring with drop-in addition Kayla Menkhorst, Don Gougeon Youth Corner

EMC lifestyle - As you are reading this, March Break is almost over and spring is in the air. With the mild temperatures forecast for the next two weeks, spring fever will be at a high. We have many different programs for youth to rid themselves of all of the excess energy. Choices range from Ball Hockey, volleyball and fencing to cooking, leadership and even hunter safety. Our annual spring ball hockey league is gearing up for another season of active fun. The program will run every Wednesday from April 18 to June 20. The Bantam division, for youth born 199697 will run from 5-6 p.m. Novice, for those born 2001-2003 will be on the slab from 67 p.m. Atom, for youth born 2000-2001, is scheduled for 7-8 p.m. And, Pee Wee, for those born 1998-99 will run from 8-9 p.m. The cost is $50 per participant, $35 if you have a Grade 5 or Grade 9 Community Access Pass. Registrations must be in to the Nick Smith Centre by April 11. We are also looking for coaches and referees. Contact Kayla at the Nick Smith Centre if you can help out. We have a new addition to our ball hockey program. There will be drop-in ball hockey for high school students from 3-4 p.m. for the duration of the program. The cost is $5 per student.

34 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, March 15, 2012

EMC news - Thousands of students across Ontario have already received their cheques for the new 30 per cent-off Ontario tuition grant. The deadline for getting applications is March 31 - college and university students should apply now so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss out. College diploma and certificate students could get $365 back this semester, and university and college degree students could get $800 back. The new Ontario Tuition grant applies to full-time students at a public college or university in Ontario, who have been out of high school for four years or less. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for students who have entered a program that you can apply for directly from high school, and for families with a gross income of $160,000 or less. Students who already receive money through the Ontario Student Assistance Program are automatically considered for the new grant, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to apply. Students who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive OSAP need to complete a simple online form, and send the signed application in via fax or mail. For more information, check online at ontario.ca/30off or call 1-888-449-4478.

Arnprior legion hosts zone orator showdown By LUCY HASS

Winners of the zone public speaking competition at the Arnprior Legion March 4, in front from left, are Marla MacInnis (Carleton Place), Quinn Vanbekkum Evoy (Smiths Falls), Ben Seward (Smiths Falls) and Meg Redmond (Arnprior); and back row Madison Reid (Carleton Place), Allison Hutchingame (Arnprior) and Justice Iris and Haripriya Pulyassary, both representing Carp’s Venta Preparatory School.

EMC lifestyle - Public speaking is a valuable life skill both socially and in the workplace, and a dedicated group of young orators already have a leg up on the competition. On March 4, organizers, family and supporters gathered at the Arnprior legion for this year’s legion zone public speaking competition. The participants spoke on a wide range of topics from lotteries and cheese to Ghandi and the subject of nothing itself. The zone winners were, by grade category: Grades 1 to 3: first, Meg Redmond of Arnprior (A Tour of Disney); second, Quinn Vanbekkum Evoy of Smiths Falls (Andrew’s Loose Tooth). Grades 4 to 6: first, Ben Seward of Smiths Falls (Is Canada a Success?); second, Marla MacInnis of Carleton Place (What It’s Like to Be Short). Grades 7 to 9: first, Madison Reid of Carleton Place (Smiles); second, Haripriya Pulyassary of West Carleton (Gandhi: The Most Influential Person of all Time). Grade 10 to 12: first, Justice Iris of West Carleton (Martin Luther King); second, Allison Hutchingame of Arnprior.

ADHS students flex brain muscles EMC lifestyle - The best and brightest of Grade 9 and 10 students in the Valley headed to Fellowes High School March 2 to take part in the first ever Renfrew County Science Olympics. The Science Olympics were organized by the Deep River Science Academy (DRSA) and students from Arnprior District, Fellowes, General Panet, Opeongo and St. Joseph’s high school, as well as Renfrew Collegiate Institute took part. The day involved teams of four R0021310211

(a male and female Grade 9 and 10 student) taking on four challenges and being scored on the results. “The idea is it’s supposed to be fun,” DRSA board member and event volunteer David Wilder said. He also pointed out March is National Engineering Month. Challenges at the Science Olympics include Needling Fruit, the Periodic Spelling Bee, the Density Relay and Heavy Engineering.

Needling Fruit involved students trying to figure out what kind of fruit was hidden in a box. They were only allowed to shove small skewers through the box to determine the size, weight, density and type the fruit was. “It’s similar to what (Ernest) Rutherford had to do to discover the atom,” Wilder said. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski launched the Olympics. “No matter who wins today, everyone is going to learn something,” he said.

Mary lucky to enjoy an excellent St. Patrick’s day Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

in dye bought from Ritza’s Drug Store , and it was sure green, even after she rinsed it several times in cold water. Back then, everything was starched within an inch of its life, and on St. Patrick’s Day I went off to the Northcote School with the bright green blouse as stiff as a board under my coat. Those in Senior Fourth, of course, wouldn’t stoop to wearing green in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day! The wearing of the green was reserved for those of us in the lower grades. I felt pretty Irish that day. But it didn’t take me long to discover that my school rival, bad Marguerite, had outdone me by a country mile. She must have gotten out of bed with the chickens, because she looked like she had been at school for hours. She was already settled in her seat when I got there, which was very unusual for Marguerite who liked to breeze in just as Miss Crosby was ringing the bell. She loved a big entrance!

But there she was in green from head to toe. Her wide satin hair ribbon in her hair matched the one at her waist. Her dress, like my blouse, was starched as stiff as a nurse’ s bib. The dress was made of organza, just like something you would see in the ads in the Philadelphia Enquirer. Her mother had even dyed her white cotton stockings, and for this special occasion, she was wearing her Sunday Mary-Jane black patent leather shoes. I was suddenly very conscious of my flour bag blouse, but the last thing I wanted to do was let on to Marguerite that I was crazy-jealous of her St. Patrick’s Day fare. Now, every morning Marguerite took it upon herself, after we were all seated, to close the storm door securely, and hook the inside one so that it wouldn’t rattle. She was never asked to do this chore, and I thought it was easier for Miss Crosby to just let her do it than argue with the young

Read the Signs So I was giving some thought to my holiday I just returned from a few weeks ago. I decided to head down to Belize for some sun, adventure and kayaking. I got everything I wanted and then some. I hadn’t traveled for awhile and the years had made me forget how much I dislike traveling by air. I am very proud of the fact that I am actually getting better at this and returned home with all my finger nails intact. What I dislike most is feeling rushed and confused. It seems that no matter how strategically you book your flights in order to allow plenty of time for connections, something always happens to make you feel rushed, discombobulated and stressed. It can range from a 6 foot tall man butting in front of you in customs, demanding that he must go in front because HE is going to be late for HIS connecting flight (who cares if it’s going to make you late) to your plane not arriving at the gate because it’s delayed in St. Louis because of the tornadoes. At one point, while strenuously jogging through the terminal in Houston (and please know that I do NOT jog) my travelling companion (who DOES jog, thank god) shouted out to me “Kimberley, I don’t know what I would do if you weren’t here with me!” The statement made me stop in my tracks and remember a very important lesson my father

taught me. He shared with me many years ago that when I am feeling lost or confused, to just stop, look around, and READ the signs. So that is exactly what we did. We found our way from terminal to sky train to terminal again and finally to our gate only to be told we would be delayed for 4 hours! Isn’t it true in life that there are all kinds of signs that surround us on a continuous basis? All we have to do is STOP and read the signs and know we will find our way. Signs come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Some are made of metal and some are made of human flesh. I remember several years ago watching an Oprah show one day when I was a huge fan. Oprah said something I will never forget and I actually took it on as one of those very wise statements to live by. She said “when someone shows you who they are... believe them.” People show us every single day who and what they are all about. It is up to us to not make excuses for them, to accept or reject what they bring to our lives and to try not to judge them. Signs are all around Island View. They range from frustration and fatigue

to genuine caring and compassion. Sometimes the sign says STOP, don’t go any further, we are having a very bad day and sometimes the colour of the sign is GREEN and everything is a go for the residents that day. It’s really no different than any other person, living any other place in the communities that surround us. We all have good days and bad. Days that we wish would end sooner rather than later and days that we want to never end. Sometimes we read the signs correctly and sometimes we don’t. When we do not, that is the time to take a lesson from our mistakes and move on. Am I getting better at reading the signs as I get older? I think I am, knowing that the only thing I can control is my reaction to the signs all around me.

Miss Crosby took her into the cloak room at the back of the school, and eventually they emerged with Marguerite wrapped in two large pinny aprons reserved for the days when the pupils cleaned the school from top to bottom. One apron covered her front, and the other her back. And there she sat for the rest of the day.

EMC lifestyle - Even if you were born in Germany, or Scotland for that matter, if you lived in Northcote, you celebrated St. Patrick’s Day. Of course, if you were Irish, all the better. Mother, who claimed to have a touch of Irish in her blood, took St. Patrick’s Day seriously, which Father thought was nonsense. He was one of the few in Northcote who had no intention of celebrating the day. It was just another day in the week, as far as he was concerned, and he didn’t think much of Mother’s getting all riled up over a day which didn’t mean a thing to him. But Mother celebrated every holiday, right from St. John Batiste Day to Robbie Burn’s birthday, and St. Patrick’s day was no exception. And so it was that year that Mother had me all decked out for this special day at the Northcote School. My older sister Audrey, and three brothers after practically being laughed out of the place in past years with their bright green shirts, flatly refused to wear anything but the usual plaid shirts and overalls they wore every day. Mother took a blouse I had worn many times which had been fashioned out of flour bags, and dyed it green. It simmered on the back of the Findlay Oval for most of a day

Crows no longer good judge of maple season Kassina Ryder

kassina.ryder@metroland.com

EMC news - When Vernon Wheelerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandfather wanted to know if the sap was running, he looked to the skies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the old days when I was growing up, my grandfather and my father used to watch the crows,â&#x20AC;? said Wheeler, who owns and operates Wheelerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maple Products, Pancake House and Sugar Camp, along with his family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In those days you would never see a crow in the winter time. So when they came back, their behaviour pretty much told you the whole story.â&#x20AC;? When crows started building their nests, that meant sap was running. That method no longer works, Wheeler added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t depend on them anymore, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re confused,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some stay all winter.â&#x20AC;?

Area syrup producers got an early start this year, thanks to heavy snowfall and warmerthan-usual temperatures late last month. Snow acts as an insulator, so the more snow on the ground means less frost beneath the surface, Wheeler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With no frost in the bush, what happens is the trees are instantly ready to run as soon as the weather turns warm,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a lot to do with the frost in the ground.â&#x20AC;? Charles Temple, owner of Templeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sugar Camp, said he usually starts making syrup during the second week of March, but this year, he was able to get started nearly two weeks earlier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fully tapped and by the sounds of the weather well be making syrup in a couple of days,â&#x20AC;? he said on Feb. 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is certainly earlier than usual.â&#x20AC;? Temple said an early syrup season will mean

more visitors to the sugar camp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always nice to be up and running when we first open as opposed to waiting around for the weather to get warmer,â&#x20AC;? he said. Wheeler agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are coming out earlier to the pancake house in larger numbers,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing. We take it one day at a time.â&#x20AC;? Temple said temperatures during January were warm enough for sap to start running for a short time as well, but it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been enough to warrant trying to collect it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a question if it makes any sense to start capturing it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Wheeler said thanks to modern technology, Februaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run was much more worthwhile. Tubing systems carry sap from thousands of trees and even if each tree only gives half a litre per day, Wheeler said it all adds up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the old days when it was buckets, you

get the same half litre and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not worth gathering,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The technology is changing to the point where it makes everything seem earlier.â&#x20AC;? Wheeler said tubing systems were introduced in the early 1950s, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gain popularity until later that decade. Now, most syrup producers use tubing systems. Wheeler said someone making syrup the old-fashioned way would have to charge astronomical prices for their products. Producers would have to charge about $175 for four litres in order to make a profit, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to make money with maple syrup, you have to have tubing,â&#x20AC;? he said. No matter what the method, Temple said producers now have their work cut out for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get warmer and stay warmer, everyone heads to the bush and gets busy.â&#x20AC;?

Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new take on good old grilled cheese sandwiches EMC lifestyle - Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another version of a grilled cheese sandwich that may become a family favorite once you try it. Instead of sliced bread, each sandwich is made with a tortilla. Diced onion, thin slices of fresh mushrooms and tomato, and basil are arranged on half of the tortilla. Two types of cheese are used, Mozarella and Cheddar, and both are grated. Once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready, the tortilla is folded over, and browned on both sides. This is very quick and easy

Food â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n Stuff PAT TREW

to prepare either as lunch or a snack. Grilled Cheese Deluxe 3 large 9â&#x20AC;? flour tortillas 3 fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced 2 slices onion, finely diced (red onion is good for flavor

and color) 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced 1/2 tsp. dried basil black pepper to taste 3/4 cup grated Mozarella cheese 1/4 cup grated medium

Cheddar cheese Heat a large frying pan, or griddle to medium/hot. I use an electric frying pan heated to 250F. Spray with cooking oil spray, or lightly brush with vegetable oil. Lay a flour tortilla on a large plate. It helps if you fold the tortilla in half before you start, then unfold it again on the plate. This leaves a slight crease along the center line of the tortilla, so that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to make out one half of the circle. The ingredients are going

to be arranged on the tortilla so they cover half of the circle. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finished adding the ingredients, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll fold the uncovered half of the tortilla over them. Arrange 1/3 of the sliced mushrooms, diced onion, sliced tomato and basil on 1/2 of the tortilla. Sprinkle with pepper if you wish. No salt is needed because the cheese will provide the salty taste. Scatter 1/3 of the Mozarella and 1/3 of the Cheddar cheese

over the sliced tomato. Fold the uncovered half of the tortilla over the cheese and tomatoes. Press down with your hands to flatten it slightly. Repeat this with the other 2 tortillas and the remaining ingredients. Place the tortillas in the heated pan. You may have to cook these one at a time, depending on the size of your pan. Cook the tortilla on one side for 2-3 minutes, or until the bottom is lightly browned. Makes three servings.

EMC lifestyle – The 4th Arnprior Brownies visited Pinto Valley Ranch in Fitzroy Harbour for a day on a farm March 3. The girls began their fun day with a sleigh ride through the woods where they were tricked by Ben, their guide for the day, to get off while the sleigh took off without them. The girls spent some of their energy chasing after the sleigh through the deep snow. To warm up after the sleigh ride, the Brownies were given a barn tour where the girls were able to hold the baby pigs and lambs and say hello to the rest of the barn animals on the ranch. Next up were the pony rides where each girl got to ride from a selection of five ponies. Inside the ranch, the Brownies were treated to hot dogs, hot chocolate, cupcakes and fruit. This boosted up their energy for the tobogganing to come. The day was an enormous success and the girls and their leaders thank Tracey Jardine and Ben and all the workers at Pinto Valley Ranch “for their wonderful hospitality and fun we had on Saturday.”

Door opens for Bishop to shine with Sens By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com His height and his hometown suggest a young man built for the hardwood game. But big Ben Bishop III, a product of St. Louis, Missouri â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a state situated in the middle of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartland, between basketball-mad Kansas and Kentucky â&#x20AC;&#x201D; never really gave the sport much of a thought.

Blame the St. Louis Blues for steering the youngest Bishop down the path he eventually wound up taking â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one which has led him to his current opportunity tending goal for the Ottawa Senators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember I went to a Blues game when I was young and I told my dad I wanted to do that,â&#x20AC;? said Bishop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So he signed me up for skating lessons ... I started playing when I was four and I just kind of stuck with it, so here I am now.â&#x20AC;? Bishop, who played minor hockey for both the Kirkwood Stars and St. Louis Jr. Blues, started out as a forward â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ironically, the position heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be best suited for had he chosen hoops over hockey. But at eight years old, he got thrown between the pipes and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a goaltender ever since. Now Bishop is the tallest one in National Hockey League

TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS Saturday, March 17, 7 p.m., CBC With their playoff hopes fading, the Leafs sacked coach Ron Wilson two weeks ago and replaced him with Randy Carlyle, who guided the Anaheim Ducks to a Stanley Cup crown in 2007. If Carlyle is to turn the tide, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need continued high offensive production from Torontoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two top guns, Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul. Also a key component to the attack is Mikhail Grabovski, who recently inked a new fiveyear contract with the Leafs. Jake

Gardiner offers bright hope for the future on the Toronto blue line, which is led by captain Dion Phaneuf. In goal, Toronto needs either Jonas Gustavsson or James Reimer to step up in a big way down the stretch.

NEW JERSEY DEVILS Tuesday, March 20, 7:30 p.m., Sportsnet East After seeing a lengthy run of playoff participation end a year ago, the Devils seem poised to make their way back into the post-season. Up front, everything revolves around Ilya Kovalchuk, Zach Parise and veteran Patrik Elias, a dynamic trio that forms the core of the New Jersey attack.

history. Naturally, playing for his hometown team was a lifelong dream â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one the Blues made come true when they selected Bishop in the third round (85th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. It truly became reality on Oct. 24, 2008, when he made his NHL debut in St. Louis colours against the Los Angeles Kings (â&#x20AC;&#x153;probably the most nervous Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been,â&#x20AC;? said Bishop). But after spending the bulk of the last four seasons with the Peoria Riverman, the Bluesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; American Hockey League afďŹ liate, Bishop knew it was time for a bigger opportunity. And when Senators starter Craig Anderson went down with a right hand injury suffered in a kitchen accident two weeks ago, a door opened for him â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happily stepped through â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when Senators general manager Bryan Murray sent a 2013 secondround draft pick to St. Louis to shore up the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goaltending depth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m over it,â&#x20AC;? Bishop said of turning the page on his biggest hockey dream. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had my chance and (the Blues) had a chance to sign me this year if they wanted to, but we kind of went our separate ways. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hard feelings at all. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity for me here, so it was kind of easy to leave.â&#x20AC;? The words Bishop spoke on the day of the Feb. 26 deal that sent him to Ottawa sum up his sentiment as he embarks on the next chapter of his hockey life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great hockey city and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great, fresh start for me,â&#x20AC;? said Bishop, who lost a training camp battle to former Senators netminder Brian Elliott for the backup job in St. Louis behind Jaroslav Halak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really excited. Words cannot describe how excited I am right now.â&#x20AC;? R0011307236_0315

The annual Valley Gun and Hunting Show last weekend recorded a record attendance of about 2,500 people at the Renfrew Armouries. That Hunting and Fishing Store, from Richmond, occupied a large footprint at the show. Robert and Jennifer Lavigne were busy most of the weekend answering inquiries and selling weapons. Held in Renfrew every early spring by organizer Dave Arbour, middle, the show offers hunter safety courses and exams, one of the many spin-off businesses of the outdoor activity. A sister show is the Valley Fishing and Outdoor Show, set for Carp on April 13, 14, and 15.

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 they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

GUNNIN’ FOR THE SHOW

Photos by Derek Dunn

EMC Events – The 2012 Pakenham Home Show is touting itself as the place to go for all the latest decorating and gardening ideas. Presented by Mississippi Mills’ Recreation and Culture Department, the annual event – now in its 21st year – runs March 30 to April 1 at the Stewart Community Centre and Pakenham Public School. “It’s time to think spring,” said Nicole Guthrie, the town’s community and cultural planner. The Pakenham Home Show is the longest running home show in the Valley, said Guthrie, adding it’s definitely the place to find out about local products and services, “from home insurance to putting in a patio.” This year, more than 60 exhibitors, including contractors, landscaping companies, decorators and home improvement vendors, will be on hand to answer questions and provide insight into the home and garden trends for 2012. There will also be products for sale. In the region of 3,000-plus people visit the event each year. Show times are Friday 6 to 9 p.m. (arena only), Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $3 per person each day (good for both venues) and includes a ballot for a door prize. One door prize will be drawn daily and a grand prize will be awarded at the conclusion of the event. “Children under 12 are free when accompanied by an adult,” said Guthrie. Prizes are a lawnmower, courtesy of Almonte Country Depot; $1,000 toward the pur-

chase of a hot tub, courtesy of Cobra Pools and Spas; $1,000 toward the purchase of a hot tub, courtesy of Mahon Pools; and $1,000 worth of merchandise, courtesy of Scheel Furniture & Appliance. “A winner does not need to be present for the draws,” said Guthrie. “They will be contacted.” Entertainment, going all weekend, will be provided in the community centre’s upper hall. On Friday night, enjoy Ol’ Tyme Round and square dancing from 8 p.m. until 1 a.m., sponsored by the Pakenham Square Dance Club. The Countrymen featuring Darrel Mooney, Kirk Warren, Dennis Harrington, Bob Johnston, Marie Brydges and Mathew Brydges, along with special guests Keith Mulvihill, Bonnie Beattie, Vicki Deslaurier, Ian Hamilton, Julie Johnston, Doug Russell and Brad Scott will perform live music on Saturday and Sunday, from 1 to 6 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m., respectively. Entertainment admission is $3 per person. Once again, the Pakenham Girl Guides will have an assortment of treats for sale at Pakenham Public School. “The Pakenham Home Show is fun for the whole family,” said Guthrie.” Although vendor booths are sold out for the upcoming home show, individuals and businesses can always contact the Recreation and Culture Department regarding 2013’s event, said Guthrie. “We can add anyone interested to our mailing list,” she continued. For more information, call 613-256-1077 or visit www.mississippimills.ca.
