‘Revitalize the Grove’ Donor recognition project among ideas suggested at meeting SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com New ideas for the Gillies Grove include recognizing those who helped save one of the last tracts of old growth forest in the province. A roomful of people gathered last Thursday at the Galilee Centre to share ideas about how to revitalize the Grove effort and form a committee to work toward that end. Mark Stabb, interim president of the Land Preservation Society of the Ottawa Valley (LPSOV), reminded those gathered about the remarkable efforts to save the forest. “We had all kinds of support,” said Stabb. “It was a big thing to have this grove

protected. It was really a community initiative,” he said. While the society has laid somewhat dormant over the past 10 years since the successful effort to save the Grove, a local group could be a valuable partner to the Nature Conservancy of Canada, which owns the land. The LPSOV has $50,000 in the bank and is interested in ideas about how to best use the money. “There are great opportunities for things that lie ahead,” said Stabb. “Right now, we have money and there are some outstanding things that need to be done.” He said what is needed now is strong community individuals to take things forward.

Gillies House owners dispute zoning DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Gillies House owners Ron MacIntyre and Alex Winter were the only residents to voice a complaint at the Arnprior draft official plan public meeting held Monday evening. Winter said the plan mentions the Gillies Grove, which surrounds his home, as a place

CP rail update

Continued from front Brenda Van Sleeuwen, NCC stewardship and science coordinator for Eastern Ontario, explained her organization puts in place a property management plan that directs what goes on in the Grove. The management plan covers five years with the most recent one being approved in 2008. Van Sleeuwen says her recent focus has been to strengthen the NCC’s partnership with the various local entities, including the LPSOV, town and township, the Galilee Centre, hospital and other grove neighbours. These partners can provide valuable input into the management plan, she said. Her work includes visits to the trail to identify hazardous trees and risks to private residences, along with potential invasive species – and to take action. The Grove is unique in terms of a conservation area because it is located in town, said Van Sleeuwen. “It has different needs and sensitivities.” The differences include the need to do regular maintenance, including some recent work that left some damage in the forest. “We don’t go out and have contractors cut down trees on any other nature reserves,” she said. Alexander Winter, who owns the historic Gillies house that abuts the Grove, expressed concerns about the heavy equipment brought in to remove some dangerous trees in the past few years. “There wasn’t another option,” she said. “The trees were dead and not safe to climb.” Three different foresters were consulted and none were prepared to climb the trees, she said. He also reported that he had made efforts to recoup expenses for repairs to a fence caused by trees from the Grove and had no response. IDEAS Among the suggestions was

recognizing contributors to the Save the Grove effort. Winter suggested Mrs. Gillies’ picket fence be worked into a restoration of the main entrance. Donors’ names could be listed on the pickets, he said. Tara Pocket urged organizers to consider signage to clearly mark the Grove entrances. She is frequently asked by visitors to the area about how to access the trail. Galilee Centre executive director Danielle Raymond suggested a youth education program. Doug Smith said walking clubs could be contacted to form an affiliation. An annual general meeting will be held in a few weeks time, said Stabb, and the options will be explored and discussed at that time. LAND TRUST ALLIANCE Ian Macnab, executive director of the Ontario Land Trust Alliance, spoke to the crowd about land trusts, which became more popular in the 1980s and ‘90s. The LPSOV is a member of the OLTA. There are about 35 of the trusts in the province, said Macnab, and they exist in all provinces. There needed to be a collective voice for land trusts across the province, hence the creation of the OLTA, a community-based, largely volunteer organization. The OLTA hopes to increase awareness, which Macnab hopes will one day include video features that could potentially be used similarly to trailers of upcoming movies in theatres. “Yours would be a wonderful story to highlight,” he said. Macnab explained there are two general ways land trusts work – groups either hold title to it, as the NCC does with the grove, or by conservation easement on title, where someone else holds the title and a land trust or conservation group cares for it.

Driver ‘could have over-corrected’ From front Lyman, who was alone in her Nissan, died on scene, said Ottawa Police Service Const. Alain Boucher, while the three occupants of the truck were taken to hospital. The driver, a 27year-old man, suffered serious, but not life-threatening injuries. His passengers, a 26-year-old woman and a 53-year-old man, suffered less serious injuries. Const. Boucher said the sedan was headed southbound when it appears the driver left the roadway onto the shoulder of the road. “The driver overcorrected and ended up in the northbound lane where the truck was,” said Boucher. Ottawa Police Services spokesman Const. J.P. Vincelette said Lyman probably made a quarter-wheel turn to get back on the road instead of the recom-

mended one-eighth turn. “We’ve all done it (left the road),” he said, adding the key is to either ease back onto the paved roadway or slowly get off the road altogether. Vincelette said speculation that Lyman might have been distracted from her driving because she was texting on a cell phone has not been confirmed. He said the investigation is continuing and will likely include checking phone records to see if Lyman was on the phone when the collision occurred. “We shouldn’t be jumping to conclu-

sions,” he said. She also could have reacted to the oncoming pickup, as they met on a long curve that has had its share of crashes in the past. Regardless of the findings, “it won’t bring her back,” he said. “It was a terrible loss. Our sympathy and our hearts go out to her family and friends.” Lyman was reportedly on her way to work at the Almonte Rexall Pharma Plus drug store when the crash happened between the intersections of the Galetta Side and Shaw roads. By 4:30 p.m. a Facebook memorial had been started and quickly gained many entries. Among the typical comments were: “You’re such a sweet girl and touched so many lives” and “You were full of joy, life and ambitions for yourself. You’ll never be forgotten.”

Memorial held Monday K a t r i n a ‘Kay’ Lyman is survived by her parents Alvin and Samantha Lyman, brothers Ross of Calabogie and Cody of Arnprior, and sisters Angel of Perth and Rachael of Oshawa. Katrina grew up in Perth, moving to Arnprior with her family after Grade 9. A service in her memory was held Monday at TrinitySt. Andrew’s United Church. In lieu of flowers, the family asked that donations in Katrina’s memory be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Royal visit timely

WARM WELCOME

Wanted: Arnprior Town Crier

The Queen is coming. It seems far-fetched but wouldn’t it be wonderful if she dropped by Arnprior July 3 to take in the re-enactment of the visit of the Prince of Wales 150 years ago. The final details of the visit of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh to Canada have yet to be released, but it is known they will be in Canada from June 28 to July 6. Their trip will include a stop in Ottawa on Canada Day. Even if the Queen doesn’t include Arnprior on her itinerary, her visit to Canada is timely for reenactment organizers. The Queen’s first tour of Canada since 2005 is certain to prompt a renewed interest in the royal family. That fascination with the royals should help boost interest in the re-enactment, both here in the Arnprior area and throughout the region. If the Queen were to come to Arnprior, she would be welcomed with open arms. Most Canadians have an unabashed fondness for the Queen and Arnprior area residents are no exception. Attendance at the re-enactment, or even a mention of it, by the Queen would be a great morale booster for those working so hard to make the event a success. With or without the Queen, the re-enactment is shaping up to be the event of the year thanks to the efforts of a dedicated and talented group guiding the arrangements. And just having the Queen in the vicinity will give the re-enactment extra flair and excitement.

To the editor: Anyone interested in applying for the volunteer position of Town Crier should email their contact information along with their reasons why they want to be the Town Crier and what strengths they bring to the position to priorcrier@hotmail.com<mailto: priorcrier@hotmail.com> before Thursday, June 3. Interviews will take place the morning of June 5 and the contest will be at noon in Robert Simpson Park during the Walk With My Mayor event. This event is being organized by the members of the Arnprior Toastmasters Club at the request of the White Pines Festival Committee.

Dog park good news, but trail needed

To the editor:

I was very happy to read your recent article (Arnprior ChronicleGuide, May 20) from Marybeth Curnock recommending that Arnprior designate a park for dogs. I believe that we are long overdue to have an off-leash park for dogs and run area in Arnprior. With thousands of dogs in our area, it makes sense to create a meeting place and play area

for animals and people together. Many dog owners have expressed their interest in volunteering time and efforts to build and maintain a dog park to me. It was a shame to read that some of our trail system is being sold off to land owners for a few dollars. I am certain that dog owners or trail walkers would have gladly paid double to keep that trail area open. The costs to establish a dog park

are minimal and I believe that most of the funding would come forward from dog owners and the town should match dollar for dollar in the fundraising effort. I recommend that volunteers start networking together now and I would be more than happy to represent their cause. Doug Smith Arnprior mayoral candidate

Hospice Renfrew staff, volunteers make it a wonderful place To the editor:

I would like to share with you, the community, my personal experience in dealing with Hospice Renfrew. Although some time has passed, my being extremely grateful for this wonderful place has not. One year ago, my husband, who was terminally ill from cancer, was admitted to Hospice Renfrew. Although it was a difficult time, we knew we made the right decision from the

moment we arrived. Any feelings of anxiety were quickly dispelled, replaced with complete peace and tranquility. The main reason for this was the staff and volunteers. It takes a special kind of person to be able to administer to the dying; and Hospice Renfrew has the most compassionate, caring and thoughtful staff I have ever come across. With my husband, they went out of their way to

see that he was comfortable; and there was always someone with him, for the entire three weeks he was there. For myself, I not only cherished the privacy given to us as we prepared to say our goodbyes; but the support the staff gave me when I just needed to talk to someone about losing a loved one to this dreaded disease. They were always there to listen, and encourage me to cry if I felt the need to do so. It was dur-

ing these times that I was graced with the strength to forge ahead. My husband passed away last year on April 18, very peacefully, and I will be forever grateful to everyone at Hospice Renfrew for being there for my husband, myself and my family. It was a place of comfort and healing for us. Now I know that death is not to be feared – it is a journey. Barb Callaghan Pembroke


Expenditures down as McNab-Braeside struggles to keep taxes reasonable McNab-Braeside council passed a $5.8 million budget May 18 that cuts expenditures by 3.05 per cent but will still result in a small property tax increase for most township residents. “We’ve never passed such a tight budget,” said treasurer Connie Graham, noting the loss of $142,400 in Ontario Municipal Partnership funding made it a challenge to keep the tax increase reasonable while maintaining core services. Inflationary increases and the HST have added to the budgetary pressures.

Therefore, it was quite an achievement to cut back expenditures to keep the municipal tax increase to under one per cent, said Mayor Mary Campbell. Added to a 2.3 per cent county increase and the freeze in the school tax rate, the bottom line for McNab-Braeside residents with a $190,000 home that is increasing in assessed value by the average 5.26 per cent is they will pay $57.03 more in 2010. A typical farm property will see a tax boost of about $10, but because of capping provisions and lower assessment increases, the average commercial and industrial property-owner will pay lower taxes than 2009.

Council also reduced expenditures last year, but increased the capital budget significantly, which resulted in an average $98 increase in 2009 for homeowners. Despite cuts in expenditures again, the 2010 budget does include several capital projects costing about $1.2 million. In the works are double surface treatment for Mountain View and Meyers roads and Moorehead Crescent, upgrading of Scheel Drive in preparation for surface treatment, engineering work on McLachlan and Creek Side roads, purchase of a five-ton plow truck, a fieldhouse and play structure at the Burnstown Beach, and road work and redesign

of the recycling facilities including the addition of a weigh scale at the landfill. In a budget report to council, Graham pointed out that for every tax dollar the township collects, it retains 34 cents, with Renfrew County receiving 38 cents and the schools 28 cents. In a budget statement, council Council thanked the CAO-clerk, department heads and staff for “working so diligently toward minimizing the significant impacts to our taxpayers.” Council also approved the 2010 garbage levy, which remains the same as 2009. A remuneration bylaw was also passed, taking into account three per cent pay increases.

DISASTER FUNDS McNab-Braeside Coun. Brad McIlquham, left, presents township Disaster Relief Fund chairman Neil Stewart with $843 raised at the Braeside Winter Carnival. McIlquham took the opportunity at council’s May 18 meeting to thank Stewart and his committee for their hard work to help victims of last July’s flooding. With donations still trickling in, the deadline has been extended a month to the end of May. About $60,000 has been raised so far locally, with the province expected to contribute up to $2 for every dollar raised in the community. Photo by JOHN CARTER

SMILE with Confidence Custom denture work done in our lab on premises

Many patients are concerned that any tooth replacements may not look, feel or function like the originals. With dental implants, however, there is no need for concern because, dental implants actually replace not only the missing tooth or teeth, but the roots too, for complete stability and a natural look and feel. If you’re missing more than one tooth, ask how implants can function as anchors to secure and stabilize bridges and dentures.

Now that most of the actors have been chosen for the July 3 re-enactment of the Prince of Wales’ visit to Arnprior, it’s time to work on the costumes. A period costume and accessories workshop will be held this Saturday, May 29 at 9:30 a.m. in the Kenwood Centre. Organizers are inviting the public to “come and discover how to create a period costume and accessories the easy way.” The workshop is open to all animators as well as those just

attending the re-enactment that will mark the 150th anniversary of the Prince’s landing on the beach in Arnprior. Participants are asked to bring, if possible, what they think would be a good costume for 1860, so it can be made “more authentic” at the workshop. Appropriate wear for the men are old baggy shirts, vest, trousers, dark shoes and a top hat. For women, a dress or long skirt, very wide 295 cm (115”) tight-fitted blouse or jacket, and dark footwear (shoes or boots) would be appropriate. It would be helpful if work-

shop-goers also bring a glue gun, artificial flowers, sewing kit and material, as well as a chair, drink and snack or lunch. The workshop will be held on the Kenwood Centre’s third floor. At least 100 actors in period costume will take part in the re-enactment, which will start about 10:30 a.m. with a flotilla of 20 canoes bringing the Prince to the Robert Simpson Park beach. He will be escorted up the Gillies Hill to Galilee and the former Daniel McLachlin house, where a lunch featuring the exact menu of the meal served

Shore work requires permits: MNR The Pembroke District Office of the Ministry of Natural Resources is reminding landowners work permits are required before working in the water or on shore lands. While some boathouses or floating docks may not require a work permit, authorization in the form of a land use permit or lease may be required from the ministry if they occupy Crown lake bed. They may also need to be reviewed by Transport

Canada for potential impact on navigation. Among other activities, work permits are required to fill or dredge shore lands; create a boat slip, boating channel or swimming area; install a water line; remove rocks and boulders from shore lands or the bottom of a lake or stream; construct a dock or boathouse in the water and remove aquatic vegetation.

Wren. These tiny brown and tan birds bear short tails that are often cocked above their backs. They might have short tails, but their voices are big. Their dry “cut-cut-cuttttttttttttttttt” trills rise from the cattails at all hours of the day and night. Marsh Wrens, like Red-winged Blackbirds, are polygynous birds. That means that the males have multiple mates. There is much speculation as to what factors determine how many females a male will attract into his harem. The size and quality of his song repertoire, which may contain 200 or more variations, has been cited as one. The quality of the male’s territory has been offered as another. A third and more intriguing theory involves the offering of “gifts.” Those items are round nests that the males build through

their territories. Unlike a true nest, a ball-like structure containing an entry hole in the side, these nests have no entrance and never hold eggs. For that reason they are called “dummy nests.” There has been correlation found between the number of dummy nests that males build and the number of females they attract. Perhaps dummy nests tell the female that a territory is safe and that food is plentiful, for in order to build a lot of nests the male must have plenty of safe leisure time. Recently I watched males building their dummy nests. They plucked pieces of old submerged cattail leaves from the water. Undoubtedly wet, limp leaves are easier to weave into ball-like shapes than are dry leaves. As they built their gifts, the males sang frequently, likely trying to attract the attention of mateshopping females. It makes sense that male Marsh Wrens would advertise their building skills. After all, they are not dummies! Recent sightings include a Northern Cardinal nest (Joanne Bayford) and a young Black Bear in Galetta (Judy Budau).

Our area is rich with habitats. Hardwood forests that flame with autumnal colour blanket the hills. Towering pines adorn sandy shores and dark cedar swamps embrace sluggish streams. Ponds and lakes punctuate the forests and fields, and rivers and creeks meander through the landscape. Local rivers such as the Mississippi and Ottawa harbour a particularly fascinating habitat along their shores. That habitat consists of towering plants whose roots form a floating platform on which other plants grow. Cattails and the marshes they form harbour some of the more unusual animals in our region. While Red-winged Blackbirds are easily seen and heard, many marsh inhabitants are encountered mainly by voice. Odd “kid-ik, kidik, kid-ik” calls reveal the presence of Virginia Rails whose bodies are laterally compressed for slipping between cattail stalks; “thin as a rail” bears testament to this shape. Even stranger are the grunts and nasal laughs of Common Moorhens whose long toes, like those of rails, allow them to walk across a world that is part water, part floating plant. One of my favourite marsh inhabitants is the Marsh

The dry, hot spring is likely to increase bear problems in the Ottawa Valley, says the Ministry of Natural Resources. The MNR is urging people to take steps to minimize contact with bear, which most frequently happens when the animal’s natural foods are scarce. If this happens, black bears will search for other food sources, such as garbage and bird feed, which can attract bears to populated areas. “With the current dry conditions we are anticipating a busy bear season,” says the MNR. The ministry stresses that at this time of year it’s important to take simple precautions to help prevent attracting black bears to populated areas. To minimize the chances of attracting black bears: • store garbage in waste containers with tightfitting lids; • take out garbage only on the morning of pick-up; • put away bird feeders. Seed, suet and nectar put out for birds also attract bears; • clean outdoor grills after each use, including the grease trap underneath. Bears will be drawn

Pakenham is getting ready to host the fourth annual Fiddle & Stepdance Competition June 18-19 at the Stewart Community Centre. Organizers and competitors alike are gearing up for another successful event that will more than double the population of this Ottawa Valley village for the summer solstice weekend. This year, the Pakenham Fiddle & Stepdance Association along with Thomas Cavanagh Construction, the Ontario Trillium Foundation and other sponsors, as well as 80 community volunteers will provide over 200 fiddlers and stepdancers with a competition many rated as the best they had ever experienced. Proceeds from the event go entirely towards this non-profit organization’s expenses, not least of which is prize money, with over $15,000 in cash and trophies awarded each year. Participants ranging in age from five to 84 come from as far away as British Columbia as Pakenham will once again showcase its historic village, friendly residents and lively Ottawa Valley traditions. Facebook lists over 600 members in the fiddle and stepdance group from this region, so in addition to Ottawa and Pembroke, Pakenham provides a third vital venue for locals and visitors to test their talent accompanied by pianist Jake Charron and fiddler Kyle Felhaver. Judges include Brian Hebert, a Country Music Hall of Fame nominee; Bruce Wilson, recipient of the Canadian Grand Masters’ Life Time Achievement Award; as well as Ian Hamilton, Cindy Dagenais and Rhodina Turner. Riverside camping is available at the Fiddle Park from June 17-19 and a community lasagna dinner will be hosted by the Pakenham United Church Saturday, June 19 from 4 to 6:45 p.m. Back by popular demand, The Kettle Boys will reconnect young and old with Ottawa Valley toys, tools and tales in the Kids’ Tent, and, of course, lots of music and steps will spill over into afterhours sessions. Pre-registration fee for all fiddle and Stepdance categories is $7 ($8 at the door). Participants can mail registration forms and cheques to: Pakenham Fiddle & Stepdance, Box 135, Pakenham, ON K0A 2X0. Spectator tickets are available at Nicholson’s (Pakenham), Baker Bob’s (Almonte), Celtic Corner (Almonte) and Mill Music (Renfrew) for $10 per show or $25 for a weekend pass.

Rivers — A Source of Drinking Water By Janet Stavinga, Chair Four municipalities in our region get their source of municipal drinking water from local rivers: Carleton Place, Ottawa, Perth and Smiths Falls. Their intake pipes draw water straight out of the Mississippi River, Ottawa River, Tay River and Rideau River, respectively. That water is then filtered, disinfected and tested before being piped out to homes and businesses in those urban areas. The Mississippi-Rideau Source Protection Committee (SPC) is now completing studies that will make municipal drinking water even safer! These rivers and the land that drains into them upstream of the intakes were studied to determine where pollutants might be able to get into the water and how vulnerable the intakes are to contamination. Knowing this will allow us to create policies that will help prevent contamination in crucial areas. First, the studies assessed how vulnerable the intakes are to contamination. For instance, Ottawa’s intakes, that are over 300 metres from shore and more than 6 metres deep, are generally less vulnerable than intakes in smaller rivers like Perth’s whose intake is only four metres from shore and is less than two metres deep. Next, the studies mapped land and water where polluted runoff or spilled chemicals could flow downstream and reach the intake. Three important Intake Protection Zones (IPZs) were mapped: a 200 metre buffer around each intake (IPZ-1); an area within which runoff and spilled contaminants could reach the intake within 2 hours (IPZ-2); and a large area within which water could reach the intake (IPZ-3). Lastly, scientists determined how easily contaminants (if present) could enter the river within these three zones – the vulnerability of the area. They considered: amount of land in IPZ-2 (more land, more chance of contamination); land cover, soil type, permeability and slope (all determine if water will run off into the river or seep into the soil – higher runoff means more chance of contamination); and the presence of pathways like ditches, storm sewers and tributaries which make it easier for contaminants to get to the river. In IPZ-1, only Ottawa’s intakes received the lower of two possible vulnerability scores. In IPZ-2, Smiths Falls and Ottawa received the middle of three possible scores while Carleton Place and Perth received the highest. This is the first time this type of study has been done in Ontario and there has been a lot of debate about methodologies. While it’s not in the public interest to underestimate how vulnerable our drinking water sources are, it also isn’t right to assign the most restrictive vulnerability score to an area without scientific rationale. The SPC considers these results to be a reasonable first time assessment with the desire to reassess them (and assign vulnerability scores in IPZ-3) once more provincial direction is provided. Land uses are now being looked at within the most vulnerable areas to estimate how many significant threats to the water supply currently exist. Examples include municipal landfills and sewage treatment plants, large volume fuel storage, large volume fertilizer and pesticide application and spreading of manure. Many of these land uses can easily reduce their threat by implementing best management practices. A Source Protection Plan containing policies to address each threat will get underway this fall and will involve lots of public input. Coming Up! Next SPC meeting is June 3 at 6pm at the Smiths Falls RCAF Wing (44 Abbott St. North). Committee members will be there early for a “meet and greet” from 5pm. The only agenda item is the approval of a DRAFT version of our Assessment Report. This report is a collection of all our technical findings and it will be posted this summer for public consultation – see our next column for details!

Each week we feature animals from the Arnprior and District Humane Society that are up for adoption.

# 3696 Thumper and Buttercup # 3697 Thumper and Buttercup, two great cats, were brought to the shelter to find a new home after a family member developed severe allergies. Thumper is a large, 11-yearold neutered and declawed male. Buttercup is a short-haired, six-year-old, spayed female. They have been companions for the past four years, and the shelter would like to see them adopted together and would be willing to reduce the adoption fee for the right home. They are affectionate, friendly cats who love attention. They are both very clean and quiet. Thumper and Buttercup would be best suited in a quiet home where they will be kept as strictly indoor cats. This adorable pair came from a home where they were loved very much so Thumper and Buttercup are scared, confused and missing their family. Please consider taking them out of the shelter and into your heart and home.

In an effort to help local schools reduce their carbon footprint, the Town of Arnprior recently donated a tree to each of them. Above, John XXIII students are more than happy to show off the new red maple planted in their school yard. Joining Arnprior Mayor Terry Gibeau and John XXIII principal Sondra Keatley are Grade 3 students, clockwise from left, Trinity Kaerbye, Brooklyn Fox, Michael Toner and Tristan Carswell. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad, Chris, helped to plant the tree. Trees act as natural filters for our air, explained Heather Gough, environmental engineering technician for the Town of Arnprior. Through the process of photosynthesis, trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store carbon while releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere, she explained.

TOWN DONATION BRANCHES OUT


Send a kid to camp June 2 Tim Hortons store owners, staff, local celebrities and customers will join together June 2 for the restaurant’s annual Camp Day. The Canada-wide fundraiser will help send more than 14,000 youth to Tim Hortons camps. Every penny received from coffee sales June 2 will go to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation. In 2009, Camp Day raised more than $9.4 million. All children who attend one of the Foundation’s six camps, including one near Quyon, are selected from within the communities where Tim Hortons stores are located. Tim Hortons store owners work closely with local youth organizations and schools to select children, between the ages of 9 and 12, to attend a 10-day summer camp session or sevenday winter camp session. “By purchasing a coffee on Camp Day, our customers give kids, who live in their very own community, an opportunity to experience a camping adventure that will inspire them for years to come,” says Foundation president Bill Moir.

Health cards available at service centre

Arnprior area residents can now obtain their health cards at the ServiceOntario centre in town. The newly integrated centre at 100 Madawaska Plaza is combining a number of services in one location. Driver and vehicle renewal services were already available at the centre. The changes will give people access to more routine government services and better meet customer needs, says a provincial government release announcing the merged service. “Ontarians will benefit from a one-stop shopping experience for most health card and driver’s licence services at all of our ServiceOntario centres by the end of this year,” said Harinder Takhar, Minister of Government Services. By the end of this year, nearly 95 per cent of all Ontarians will be within 10 kilometres of an integrated ServiceOntario centre.

RAISING AUTISM FUNDS, AWARENESS Walter Zadow Grade 6 student Noah Pelkey collected an impressive $1,517.25 for Autism Ontario in a week-long campaign at the school last week. Noah was “thrilled” by the response from his fellow students, as he almost doubled his $800 goal, reports his mother Denise. He was assisted in the initiative by educational assistant Jennifer Plager. The campaign was prompted by the Who’s Nobody doll project. Noah turned a nobody doll into a ‘somebody’ with his successful efforts to raise funds for and awareness about autism. He was the obvious choice to tackle the topic as he lives with autism. “Who better to take up the cause,” said his teacher. Noah created his own ‘Together for Autism’ poster, left, to promote the fundraiser. He also gave a speech explaining the campaign each day on the school’s public address system. Then he went from class to class with his money jar collecting donations. George Faour of Milano’s Pizza gave the campaign a big boost by promising a pizza lunch to the class that was the top fundraiser. Dairy Queen was also a supporter, providing ice cream for the runner-up class.

Thieves target vehicle contents

23 May 27 2010 - ARNPRIOR CHRONICLE-GUIDE

Arnprior OPP officers have responded to several reported thefts from vehicles last week in town. In the early morning hours of May 16, two unknown male suspects attempted a theft from a vehicle on Bell Street. On May 18, a theft from vehicle on Huyck Street resulted in a tire gauge and small change being taken from the vehicle. On May 19, a third reported incident resulted in a theft of cell phone from a vehicle on Mary Street. The OPP urge residents to keep valuables out of their vehicles. R.I.D.E. STOPS Several R.I.D.E. checks were conducted last week by Arnprior OPP. As a result, one driver was issued a three-day suspension after registering a ‘warn’ on the roadside breath test. Four charges and 13 warnings were issued under the Highway Traffic Act. BUSH FIRE On May 13, five youths were seen by an off-duty firefighter running from a small bush fire behind Short Road in the town of Arnprior. Arnprior OPP constables Stevens and Young spoke with three youth possibly involved. The investigation is ongoing. OPP are also reminding Arnprior residents of the strict legislation making it illegal to set off fireworks in the town limits.

Arnprior player taken fourth in CHL draft DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN daniel.bowman@metroland.com

In the lead-up to the 2010 Central Hockey League draft, it didn’t take long for the Carleton Place Canadians to determine the player they would be selecting. When team management interviewed Arnprior player Stephen Baylis, whom they chose with the fourth overall pick May 19, they walked away feeling like they had a keeper. “We saw a lot of character, a lot of good traits that we’re looking for to represent our community and organization,” head coach and owner Jason Clarke said. “He’s the type of kid that we definitely want to surround our self with. “We’re more than pleased with our pick.” It only helped the left winger from Arnprior was an integral

part of his team’s success last season. As a member of the Ottawa Valley Titans minor midget AAAs, Baylis scored 16 points in as many games as his team won their regular season title. Baylis then upped the ante in the postseason, recording 13 points in 10 games as the Titans won the Ontario East Minor Hockey League championship in six games over the Ottawa Jr. 67s. “We see him as a power forward,” Clarke said. “I really think he’s got the capabilities to play for our team next year.” Whether Baylis makes the Canadians next year, he will be a lot closer to the team. His family had been planning to move into town in order to make the commute to work in Perth easier for his mother. “He comes from a great hardworking family; there’s a lot of

good roots there,” Clarke said. “Whenever we’re going to draft kids, we’re looking at their backgrounds. We’re looking for character and he’s a really good kid.” For his part, Baylis knows he has to get stronger to make the jump to the Canadians next season. However, he was soaking in the moment at the Earl Armstrong Arena. “It’s probably the best feeling I’ve ever had,” he said after being drafted. “To go in the first round is a good feeling.” Regardless of where Baylis plays next season, Clarke has no qualms about the selection going forward. “He’s going to be a player,” Clarke said. “He’s going to earn a scholarship out of our league. He’s going to be a big part of our organization.” Among the other Arnprior

The Renfrew OPP issued several safe driving reminders during Canada’s Road Safety Week. Among the tips: pay extra attention to bicycles, motorcycles and pedestrians; be cautious at intersections; don’t be distracted by cell phones or

food; give large commercial vehicles the room they need; don’t speed and when conditions are poor decrease your speed below the posted limit; always wear your seatbelt; and don’t drive when under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.

Sing for Spring in Burnstown MUSICAL ACHIEVERS Burnstown United Church is proud to announce that Julie Larocque will headline this year’s Sing for Spring concert Saturday May 29. Larocque and other performers will perform love songs, Broadway hits and gospel tunes starting at 7 p.m. in the church. Julie Larocque is a professional musician from the Renfrew area, as well as a radio announcer and television producer. While many recognize her as a freelance broadcaster on MyFM and have heard her sing at many weddings and events, how many know her third album, Observatory, has been receiving rave reviews from critics and colleagues? And that her original compositions have also garnered the solicitation of the prestigious Cirque du Soleil and songs have been used in several independent media projects? She will be joined by other local performers: Laurent Gagnon from the Calabogie area, Nicole Vaillancourt from Arnprior, Carpenter’s Way from Cobden, and Joanne Longtin from Renfrew. A silent auction will also be conducted prior to and following the performances, with all proceeds going to the Burnstown United Church. There are some very interesting items, including two sightseeing tours in a private plane along the Madawaska River, a portrait session, dinner for six, and an oil change, with more items to come. Cost is $10, with children 10 and under free. Refreshments will be served afterwards. Earlier in the day, Burnstown United Church will be busy with a plant and bake sale, starting at 9 a.m. Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m, with real German sausage served on a bun. Cost is $5, which includes a beverage.
