Future of rail corridor debated Let your intentions be known, councils urged

Canada’s Governor-General Designate David Johnston: sound like a familiar name? It should. He used to live in Arnprior, according to an acquaintance and longtime resident of town. “He lived here when he was sixyears-old, in 1947,” said Ron Lang, who met Johnston several times and confirmed the connection in person as well as through a mutual friend. Apparently Johnston, who was born in Sudbury, moved to Arnprior where his father co-owned the nowclosed hardware store Cock Shutt. Johnston could not be reached for comment before press time. He is president of the University of Waterloo; holds law degrees from Queen’s and Cambridge and an arts degree from Harvard; has written 24 books; sits on numerous boards and committees; and is a member of Harvard’s Athletic Hall of Fame. He becomes Canada’s next Governor-General on Oct. 1. Will he grow nostalgic while in Ottawa and want to tour Arnprior again?

With it becoming less and less likely a saviour will come forward to maintain the CPR line from Smiths Falls to North Bay, municipal councils should start thinking about what should be done with the corridor, says McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell. At its July 6 meeting, councillors discussed pros and cons of keeping the route in public hands as a recreational trail. Campbell reported to council that one of the two unnamed

companies that had expressed an interest in taking over the rail line from CP Rail has dropped out of the running and the other is only interested in the Mattawa-to-North Bay section. If CP Rail can’t find someone interested in running it as a short line operation by this fall, it will likely sell the rail tracks for scrap and put the land up for sale, she added. Campbell suggested each municipal council along the route needs to form a position on the matter. See RAIL TRAIL, Page 12

Cougar a hybrid cat?

Strike in council race

The ‘cougar’ seen by at least a couple of motorists just east of Arnprior may be a hybrid feral cat, says Thomas Charbonneau, who saw the animal while golfing on the Madawaska golf course last week. For more on Charbonneau’s conclusions, see his letter on Page 5.

Ted Strike is seeking a return to Arnprior council. The retired town director of public works and former two-term council member announced in an open letter this week that he file to run for a councillor position in the Oct. 25 election. For more, see his letter on Page 5.

Noxious hogweed confirmed in White Lake JASON MARSHALL jason.marshall@metroland.com Jeff Muzzi has received more than 100 phone calls from Renfrew County residents who think they’ve spotted giant hogweed plants growing in the area, but only three claims have turned out to be legitimate. The third was confirmed last week in White Lake. Muzzi, the county’s forestry manager, has been inundated with calls since his office reported the arrival of giant hogweed plants in June. With recent media reports placing the giant weed in the spotlight, Muzzi’s phone has been ringing non-stop and he’s working late into the evening returning emails about the plants. In Renfrew County, giant hogweed plants have also been confirmed in the townships of Laurentian Valley and Whitewater Region. Others have been confirmed in Ottawa. It is the possible danger associated with the plant that has people buzzing.

Renfrew County forestry manager Jeff Muzzi is dressed in protective garb as he shows local road crews how to safely remove a giant hogweed plant during a demonstration in White Lake last Friday. Photo by Jason Marshall If the sap from a broken stem or crushed leaf, root, flower or seed comes into contact with damp skin (perspiration will suffice) and the skin is exposed

to sunlight, severe burns, blistering and painful sores may result. In some cases, permanent blindness has been reported. On Friday morn-

ing (July 16), more than 30 county and township roads employees joined Muzzi at a private residence on Point Road, just outside White Lake in McNab-Braeside Township. They were there to learn how to properly identify and eradicate the noxious plant. Road maintenance crews may encounter the weed while cutting roadside ditches, and Friday’s session was an important step to ensuring the safety of the workers. Muzzi couldn’t overemphasize the need to exercise caution. “I’ve worked alone in the bush for 30 years – I’ve been bitten, scratched and chased. I’m not a paranoid guy, but you’ll see how careful I am around this thing,” said Muzzi. When it came time to demonstrate how to dispose of the weed, Muzzi’s attire backed up his words. Clad in Tyvek coveralls with rubber boots, goggles and a pair of neoprene gloves over a pair of rubber gloves, Muzzi used shears to cut the flowers

and put them in a plastic bag. “Seal up the bag and leave it in the sun for a couple of weeks to kill all the seeds,” said Muzzi, who added that a mature giant hogweed plant can produce 100,000 seeds. After removing all the flower heads, he sawed through the stalk, falling the two-metre (almost seven-foot) plant. It was one of four or five plants growing beside a hayfield, the tallest of which had surpassed the three-metre mark (around 10 feet). “You need to kill the root stalk within a week or two – or it will grow again,” he added, noting giant hogweed roots can grow more than a metre into the ground. He advised the workers to sever the stalk four or five inches below the ground. If not, the root will bud again. “If you don’t do it right, this is going to be an ongoing battle with the plants,” he said. Muzzi said he would return in a few weeks and would visit again in the spring to see if it was

properly removed. Muzzi has been reading manuals and any material he can find about the plants, which originated in Asia. “The first thing you need to know is that it’s big. It lives up to its giant name, said Muzzi. “It has huge flowers, wide leaves, a long stalk and purple blotches – when you get a good look at this thing, you’ll realize nothing else looks like it.” Muzzi noted the White Lake plants sprang up next to the hayfield after they appeared in a nearby garden almost two years ago. Attractive in nature, the plants, which resemble Queen Anne’s Lace, don’t look out of place in a flower garden. On Friday, Alexandre Blain, a representative from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, was on hand to collect samples so the group could do DNA tests on the plant to further increase understanding of this non-native species. - With files from the Renfrew Mercury

Wild parsnip a problem too JASON MARSHALL jason.marshall@metroland.com Renfrew County’s forestry manager Jeff Muzzi insists people do their homework on the giant hogweed plant so they can identify and differentiate it from another noxious plant running rampant throughout the area – wild parsnip. “Everyone is talking about giant hogweed, but there should be as much noise about this stuff – it’s all over the place,” said Muzzi. “It’s the first cousin of giant hogweed and has the same kind of sap.” He said there are four hospital visits a day across Renfrew County due to exposure to wild parsnip. “A big problem is people whipper-snipping and hitting the weed,” he said. Muzzi pointed to a small field in the heart of the Village of White Lake. Right next to the main road, the field was littered with wild parsnip plants, which resemble a cross between goldenrod and wild dill. “This looks nothing like hogweed – it’s way smaller and yellow,” he said. “And there isn’t a place in the county that doesn’t have it. But no one seems concerned about it. They should be. We have a lot bigger problem with wild parsnip.” Muzzi said about one-third of the calls

he’s received come back to the wild parsnip plant, not giant hogweed. “There’s so much of it (wild parsnip), it’s a lost cause to try and get rid of it. The big thing is awareness. Know what it looks like and how to deal with it,” said Muzzi. WHAT TO DO If anyone does come into contact with either giant hogweed or wild parsnip, Muzzi says the only antidote is to immediately wash the skin thoroughly with soap and water and avoid exposing the area to sunlight. If the skin becomes irritated, medical attention should be sought. Livestock and pets that have been in contact with the plant can also spread the sap. Anyone who feels they may have seen giant hogweed – or those looking for more information about the plant – is encouraged to contact the invasive species hotline hosted by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, in conjunction with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. The special hotline number is 1-800563-7711. People can also visit the website at www.invadingspecies.com/invaders or check out the Ministry of Agriculture site at www.weedinfo.ca.

Strong high-speed Internet interest in the rural areas of McNab-Braeside has prompted Bell Aliant to add to its coverage area. Bruce Parker, project manager for the Rural Connections Broadband project that is extending high-speed coverage into five areas of McNaB-Braeside and Douglas, updated McNab-Braeside council and introduced tech mentor Des Anderson July 6. Anderson is providing free advice this summer to businesses and residents on how they can best benefit from the availability of high-speed service. “The project is still on time and on budget,” Parker said. “We’re not hearing too many complaints.” High-speed service is being made available to almost 2,000 rural homes in the project area. Parker reported that White Lake, which went on line early this year, has

DES ANDERSON 300 subscribers and Burnstown, which has been on line for just over a month, already has more than 50. Areas serviced earlier are Russett Drive (174 subscribers), Sand Point (133) and Braeside (189). Parker said the work in the Douglas area is 80 per cent complete and residents there should have access to high-speed by the end of July. The high subscription

rates have resulted in additional coverage for residents further along Russet Drive and in the Braeside and White Lake areas, he said. However, there’s not much chance it will be extended to the Goshen/ Lochwinnoch area because of the long distance to the closest lines, he told Coun. Jim McGregor. However, Bell does have a High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) program that uses its cell towers to distribute high-speed, Parker said. Residents can access high-speed through a stick or turbo hub, he explained. He advised residents unsure of their status to plug in their phone number on the municipal website’s broadband link to find out what services are available to them. Mayor Mary Campbell said she is pleased to hear that the Deerfield and Lorelei areas are being covered, because of the many requests from those areas.

In response to councillors’ questions, Parker said Anderson’s contact information is on the township website or people can phone the municipal office and leave him a message. If he can’t work out people’s problems or answer their questions over the phone, he will make house calls, he said. Parker said Anderson has developed informational material to help

A once bustling community hall in Glasgow Station is on its last legs, but confusion over the property ownership in the area needs to be sorted out before it is demolished. McNab-Braeside council reiterated July 6 that the Arnprior Lions Club should get a lawyer to officially determine the boundaries and get a proper deed before it can try to sell the property. The township, which has adjacent property, is not interested in buying the Lions part or subsidizing the club’s effort to resolve the issue, they agreed. Coun. Jim McGregor said there have

But a public survey indicated ratepayers didn’t want their tax dollars spent on the hall, he added. McGregor said it still would be too costly to fix it up. Perhaps the nearby church would be interested in the land, he said, adding “I think we probably better stay clear of it.” Deputy Mayor Elmer Raycroft said it will likely be costly for the Lions to research the deed. Nevertheless, it should be done because the hall has become a fire hazard, he said.

Riverside trail a mess

Operation haphazard Admirable concept, terrible execution. The provincial government has forced Stewardship Ontario to back off its much-criticized ecofees, for now, in the face of consumer and retail business anger. It’s unfortunate the uproar over the haphazard and covert way the eco-fees were implemented on 9,000 so-called hazardous waste items July 1 has overshadowed the fact there needs to be a better way to pay for the disposal of hazardous goods. It’s also eclipsed an announcement by Stewardship Ontario that registered hazardous waste depots around the province will begin accepting more items this month, making it easier for the public to keep them out of landfills (see page 24). And that’s good for everybody. The controversy does provide the government an opportunity to back off and engage the public in a proper discussion on what is and isn’t hazardous waste and how it should be recycled, reused or safely eliminated. Arnprior and McNab-Braeside are involved in an admirable joint effort with their neighbours to the north and west that sees local hazardous waste looked after in a summer depot at the Renfrew landfill site. Adding a couple of local drop-off days or arranging for hazardous waste car (truck) pooling would help residents who can’t easily make it to Renfrew. But in general the joint depot plan works quite well. If only the province and Stewardship Ontario were so efficient in their dealings with the problem.

To the editor:

I am writing to you in despair because I cannot sit back and watch the unpunished crimes being done upon the taxpayers of Arnprior as I speak. I am speaking of the destruction of the mouth of the mighty Madawaska River – the very river which made Arnprior, the river that gave early settlers a place to call home and live prosperously. I invite everyone in town and the surrounding areas to please come and walk the scenic path from Madawaska Boulevard to Robert Simpson Park. I assure you will be disgusted and yet motivated to find out who is responsible and why it is not addressed by the Town of Arnprior or the MNR. I am talking about the existing hazardous conditions of the path due to construction on our local sewage plant. It is obvious that there are safety and other issues pertaining to this project. And most aggravating are the garbage cans that have been overflowing since before Canada Day. That’s the truth. Where is the Parks and Rec staff ? Let’s water the flowers at town hall after a torrential rain storm instead of cleaning up the shoreline of diapers, tires, construction fencing, blasting caps and other public waste. Whoever runs the clean-up crew in this town should be ashamed just before they get replaced. Actually, I think we should be replacing a lot of town staff, starting at the top. Take a walk this weekend along the shoreline of the mouth of the mighty Madawaska River. You will agree with me. Letter-writer Scott Stubinsky is upset over the weeds and broken garbage cans along the town trail by the Madawaska River.

Thanks for letting me pay property taxes DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Thank you. I know that sounds schmaltzy, but I’m pretty much brimming with gratitude these days after having moved to town last week. Gratitude is one of many, many emotions that doesn’t sit comfortably with me. Hopefully this note will exorcise some of these – how do emotionally developed people refer to it? – feelings. Thank you, honestly, for letting myself, my lovely wife (who still drives to work in Carp but is glad to see me walking) and our two lads move to your town. Sure, there wasn’t a wall to climb to get here, but I nevertheless feel compelled to state my appreciation to each and every resident for making it the prettiest place I’ve worked. And having lived or worked in many places, I haven’t found a better one to hang my hat. A little over a year ago, while wrapping up a contract at another newspaper, I ended my last interview by telling Mayor Terry Gibeau that he had a really beautiful town here; that we are from a small town and the big city of Ottawa is a bit overwhelming. “Thanks, we like it,” he said. It was with a heavy heart that I drove back to my home in Bells Corners, expecting never to see Arnprior again. And yet here I am 14 months later writing to you from the best house ever MLSed. Ever. It’s true. And it’s on a charming street right in the heart of town with plenty of children and people who drop by with letters

that read “Welcome to the neighbourhood.” Did I say thank you already? I’m not sure why it keeps coming to mind this last week or so as we loaded up the UHaul and got set up here. It must have something to do with Robert Simpson Park, one of the best in Eastern Ontario (believe me, I’ve worked in more than a dozen municipalities in this region. This one is breath-taking by comparison.) Thanks, I guess, to those folks with the vision who saw it through. Thanks to homeowners who plant flowers in their front yards. I know it’s done elsewhere, but the feeling here is that people do it almost entirely for the benefit of others. Same thing with other spots in town. I love to walk past the old buildings with dates and names at the top. Thanks to those who champion local heritage; reminds me of my hometown on the east coast where old means character and Kanata means – well, something less solid. I want to say something about cities being broken, about how the Queensway is a paved sword driven into every commuter’s soul, but I want to avoid making my point through contrast. It will have to be enough to say I feel free to be nice to people here. It’s even encouraged. A smile at the grocery store; a fishing tale at the kids’ soccer game; a wave from behind the steering wheel; there is an ease of time and interactions in Arnprior, and it suits me. Thanks for the chance to pay property taxes, too. (Ugh, when will the

gratitude stop and I can get down to complaining about paying property taxes!) Thanks to my wise overlords who agreed to hire me at the newspaper of record. It feels good to have people drop in at the office to chat about local politics or see couples at night stop at the window to read the death notices. There is continuity among the generations here, and though I will never experience it directly, it is nice to know many people in town have had friends and relations nearby for many, many decades. Incidentally, among my favourite sections of a newspaper is the classifieds: announcements, welcoming new babies, the “stag and doe” (a term we don’t use down east). Our classifieds administrator hears the most touching things. The guy who received a heart transplant and puts in a remembrance each year for the donor; the little girl who lost her kitty; a widower who penned the words himself. Our readers are as much a part of the paper as we are of the town. In a less sentimental note: In part my job is to hold town councillors’ feet to the fire and report on points of contention. It’s not the only part of my job, but it is an important part. I plan to keep doing that. But I would also like to take this opportunity to say I believe Arnprior is moving in the right direction. That it holds tremendous potential. And that I am proud to call it my home. At heart, I want only the best for us all. I doubt my gratitude will ever completely subside. Now, how about those water bills!


With reference to a recent report of a cougar seen in the vicinity of the Madawaska Golf Club, I just might have an answer to what was seen. Last Tuesday, on the 13th of July at approximately 2 p.m., I was enjoying a round of golf at the Sumac Grove Course, which is part of the Madawaska Golf Club complex. As I was proceeding up the 17th fairway contemplating my next approach shot, I saw a feline animal sitting on

the edge of the fairway partly in the underbrush, but clearly visible from where I was. The cat was roughly 30 yards away from me. I estimate the animal weighed between 20 to 30 lb, had a ‘cougar-ish’ type face, tufted ears, and was gray in colour. I watched it for about 30 seconds and it just sat there watching me. Then it turned around and entered the underbrush. As it did so, I noticed it had a long tail similar to that of a cougar but it

was ringed like a raccoon tail. I am convinced this was not a cougar. But I suspect it is a hybrid animal, lynx or bobcat, perhaps, that has mated with a feral cat and through natural selection developed the characteristics I have described. In conversations with staff at the golf club, one staffer told me that a cat similar to what I have described has been seen scavenging in the area for scraps of food and another staffer said that they have perceived a reduction in the number of squirrels that they

normally see on the courses. When I told a couple of golfers about the animal I saw, their response was to know “how much I had to drink on Tuesday?” I had two beers! But I also had the privilege of having a unique member of my small gallery following my progress up the fairway. I also sent a report of my encounter to the MNR for their information.

Letter-writer’s highway hazard concerns clarified To the editor:

Re: Clarification of letter-writer’s position (in July 15, Chronicle-Guide). Perhaps I have not received a response from MTO because they too misinterpreted my letter regarding the moving of the stop sign at the intersection at Hwy. 17 and Campbell Drive. I did not maintain “moving back the stop sign ... makes entering the highway more hazardous.” At the best of times, entering the highway from either side has always been hazardous - but at least there use to be a clear line of sight to see the oncoming hazard(s)! Attempting to enter the

highway will obviously only get worse when the westbound two lanes from the extension of 417 are bottlenecked into one just before Campbell Drive. One only has to picture if Herrick Drive had been left opened with just stop signs. My letter pointed out that because the stop sign was moved back, the road signs along the shoulder of the westbound lane now interfere with the line of sight of oncoming eastbound traffic from the north side of the highway. I note that the photograph in the newspaper was taken from the south side of the highway (although, it does point out that the Campbell Drive road sign interferes

with the eastbound traffic line of sight as well). They say a picture can be worth 1,000 words, so I have attached one which clearly shows both of the ‘Air Patrolled speed’ signage interferes with the line of

To the editor:

urton for Reeve B Former council member decides to run again Campaign Launch Your readers of this newspaper will probably have noted my occasional letter expressing concerns about various matters concerning town affairs in recent times. The items that I wrote about have been particularly troubling to me as a resident of Arnprior. The only recourse that I have had for any input of my opinions to council have been through the gratuitous use of the printed press, and I thank you for that. However, this input has its limitations. It has become apparent that I am not alone in my concerns. During my daily walks with my wife, Bev, I am frequently stopped to be complimented on my writing efforts and the layman terms in which I have expressed my opinions. Their comments have been extremely supportive.

I am fortunate to have the background of a long association with this town as a previous director of public works and two-time member of council. With this in mind, I have given some serious and lengthy consideration to returning to municipal politics and have decided to put my name and experience

before the voting public for consideration for the office of councillor in the upcoming fall election. I will be filing my papers before the end of this month.

Ban questions unanswered To the editor: This letter refutes statements made by Brenda Van Sleeuwen of the Nature Conservancy of Canada in the March 25 and April 1 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide and via email. In reference to the continued ban, Brenda Van Sleeuwen states: “the decision to restrict his access to Gillies Grove was a measure in protecting privacy of neighbours.” This communication was released to the press prior to any contact with me. In addition, since these statements were made public, several attempts have been made to obtain answers to “who, what, where, when and why?” to no avail. The only response I have received is quote: “We are botanists, biologists, not

lawyers.” Is going public with such allegations prior to talking to the accused, then refusing to allow the accused opportunity to defend himself not a violation of the rights of privacy and fair due process under our laws? Is this not counter-productive to efforts to restart volunteer activity in Gillies Grove? I will state confidently that my several years as a volunteer steward in the Grove for NCC were carried out professionally and according to written and verbal instructions from NCC representatives.

Manor auditorium construction around the corner The fundraising campaign for Bonnechere Manor’s auditorium has definitely warmed up. Following the $1 million fundraising campaign kickoff on a frigid Jan. 29 at the Renfrew long-term care home, there are now enough funds pledged or raised to trigger construction for the much-anticipated auditorium. The County of Renfrew is now seeking requests for proposal (RFP) to build the auditorium, to be located where the courtyard now sits. The deadline for RFPs is July 28. Construction is to begin this summer and to be com-

pleted by March 31, 2011. Bonnechere Manor, which moved into the building in 1995, has had no auditorium since then. The county is seeking a design-build package, which includes architectural drawings. “We’ve had great success with the design-build approach for our ambulance stations,” said Jim Lynch, the county’s manager of real property assets. Those stations were recently built in Arnprior, Petawawa and Barry’s Bay. The contract calls for construction of a facility of about 4,800 square feet, of which just less than 4,000 contains the auditorium. The other space is for a

cement patio at the auditorium’s west end. County documents say proposals may include “the ability for proponents to achieve a lasting legacy through a donation or a financial support of the project in a philanthropic manner. “In return, the County of Renfrew will acknowledge the contributions of the proponent in a manner fitting the purpose.” Where federal and provincial legislation permits, the county says it will strive to make available to the proponent a charitable tax receipt. “The nice thing is (applicants) have architectural freedom,” said

100 Madawaska Blvd, Arnprior

Lynch, noting the auditorium may feature a stage with a strong visual component. Lynch said August’s property and development committee is scheduled to make a recommendation for approval at the Aug. 25 session of Renfrew County council. Construction could be underway within a week of that date, said Lynch. Meanwhile, fundraising for the auditorium projeft continues, with the Bonnechere Manor Foundation having raised $305,000 of its goal of $350,000.

Grove fire extinguished

ARNPRIOR CHRONICLE-GUIDE - July 22 2010

McNab-Braeside fire chief Rob Dodge and Braeside district chief Dave Hartwick confer in the aftermath of an early morning fire Monday in the Village of Burnstown.

Arnprior and McNab-Braeside firefighters doused a fire in Gillies Grove Sunday. Details are sketchy as Arnprior fire chief John Okum is away on holiday and no one else was available to comment by press time, but some neighbours are wondering if the fire was deliberately set. The firefighters limited the fire to a small area of the Grove near the boundary to the Gillies House property. It was the second fire in the Grove in the past couple of months. The dry, hot summer has prompted some concerns about the vulnerability of the Grove to a forest fire. It has also renewed the debate over the wisdom of cutting off a hydrant in the area. Firefighters are urging the public to be extremely careful in the woods, particularly with cigarettes, as the bush is so dry. While there have been no major bush fires so far this summer, a forest fire in the Hurd’s Lake area in the spring threatened several cottages.

A Burnstown woman escaped an early morning fire in her home Monday by crawling out a basement window. Her Burnstown Road home in the village, about halfway up the hill toward Renfrew, received significant damage in the blaze. The woman, who was home alone at the time of the fire, was taken to hospital as a precaution. McNab-Braeside fire chief Rob Dodge reported the fire department received the call at about 4:30 a.m. to a home at 1745 Burnstown Rd. The woman smelled smoke, escaped through a back window and called 911 from a neighbour’s home, he said. Dodge said when firefighters arrived there were flames in an upstairs bedroom and smoke coming from the home’s windows, vents and cracks in the wall. They managed to limit the direct fire

damage to a computer room and the bedroom above it in the front of the house, he said. However, there was smoke and heat damage throughout the rest of the home, he added. Dodge said the fire burned out the floor between the two rooms. He has called in an electrical inspector, as he suspects the cause of the fire might be wiring related. A cat was still missing Monday morning, but firefighters are hopeful it escaped and is in hiding outside. Crews from all three McNab-Braeside fire stations attended along with police officers, ambulance paramedics and hydro workers. Burnstown Road was closed for a time to make it easier to fight the blaze. The fire department used the dry hydrant at the Burnstown Beach for water and managed to quell the flames with one tanker-load. The fire department stayed on scene until mid-morning to ensure no hot spots reignited.

Members of the Horton and Arnprior communities are mourning the loss of Larry Rawn, who died last Thursday evening in a drowning accident. Friends say he and a woman from the area both rushed to help a swimmer who was in trouble on the Bonnechere River, just south of Golden Lake. Unfortunately, the two rescuers got caught up in an undertow and by the time the woman got Rawn to shore, efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful. Rawn worked as a machinist at the Arnprior Sandvik Steel plant, which had its flag flying at half mast in his honour last week.

Larry Rawn lost his life after saving someone else’s life. While he lives in Horton, he has a daughter, Angela, and two sisters who live in the ArnpriorBraeside area. A big man with a big heart was how many described him.

“He might have looked rough, but he was just a gentle giant,” said close friend Valerie Miller who has known him since he moved to Castleford about 20 years ago. “He had a heart of gold. “This has hit me as hard as if he was my brother. He was like a brother.” The 57-year-old Rawn was one of the chief organizers behind the annual Castleford ice fishing derby. He had helped turn the event into a huge success, with proceeds going to such causes as Horton fire department and Castleford Union Cemetery restoration. Rawn, who worked with Miller on various community causes, was about to join Horton Township’s recreation committee. See GOOD, Page 12

Oattes Farm Drainage

McGregor’s Produce also pays for the Jamaicans’ flights to and from Canada, and their accommodation. The Jamaicans are good, steady workers who mix well with other workers on the farm, including the 15 local university or college students, says McGregor. “In general, they’re a happy lot.” One of the Jamaicans, who has been an annual fixture at McGregor’s, is Denvil Anderson, 48. He used to work in the tobacco industry, in southwestern Ontario, until that industry’s prominence was lost as the government pushed other crops on Canadian soil. A Canadian job became even more important after his other job, at a large aluminum mill in Jamaica, disappeared with the closing of the mill. At McGregor’s he picks and plants crops in addition to working as the Jamaican group’s supervisor. A key to being hired is hand size, says Anderson. Bigger hands mean you can pick more, says the married man of three kids. A resident of St. Elizabeth in central Jamaica, he says it’s hard being away from home for so long.

‘THEY GET A LOT DONE’ “They don’t rip and tear the way I used to, but they get a lot done,” says McGregor of the Jamaicans. Their presence has also brought a sense of internationalism to the place. “You learn about their culture,” he says. Depending on the Jamaican, they work two to six months for McGregor’s Produce before flying back home. “It’s really worked out well for us,” says McGregor. “(The arrangement has) allowed us to expand our operations, so we can bring a lot of fresh produce to the communities in the Valley.” Dyane Gordon, who has a small farm of goats and pigs in Jamaica, says the work days can be tiring. So the 32-year-old, in his fourth year at McGregor’s, often returns at night to the Renfrew Inn Suites to relax in front of the TV. “Sometimes I want to just go and lie right down,” he says. “Sometimes the weather only (I don’t like),” he adds. “But the people are sort of friendly. One or two people were maybe not friendly.” Sebastien Marshall, 25, also has a small farm in Jamaica, but he’s in Canada to help support his girlfriend and daughter. Working in Canada for the first time, he says, “It’s all right, nice country and so on.” The best thing about Canada is the work, he says. But he finds the weather “kind of hot” because of the higher humidity. Based on his headwear, Kenneth Wiltshire, 32, has a similar view. He wears a sun hat and towel around his neck, while a group of bean stocks surround his head.

Sugar and bananas are the superstars of Jamaica’s agriculture industry. But, when it comes to finding work, about 6,000 Jamaicans still come to Canada every year because there isn’t enough farming income at home. About 85 per cent come to Ontario, and businesses such as McGregor’s Produce in McNab-Braeside Township, where co-owner Jim McGregor has hired Jamaicans through the Jamaican Liaison Service for four years. It’s no wonder they’re coming to Canada, given many Jamaicans reportedly make less than $500 a year working at home. The 2009 recession hit North America hard, but it may have hit such Third-World countries as Jamaica even harder. Therefore, the popularity of Canada’s Jamaican Liaison Service, which began in 1966, may continue to grow. “We tried to depend on local labour,” said McGregor. But there wasn’t enough local interest to do all the work required on the McGregor’s Produce crop acreage of about 100 acres. The advent of Jamaican workers was fuelled by the departure of a hard-working Canadian couple at McGregor’s. “We had a couple five years ago that were really good workers,” he recalls. “But they decided to go west (where the oil industry was thriving).” Their departure left the business shorthanded, but Jim and sons Cameron and Ian had talked about hiring offshore labour for a few years. As it turns out, the Jamaican Liaison Service had been directing seasonal workers into Canada since 1966 for work in the tobacco or horticultural industries. McGregor’s Produce began back in 1979. But expansion over the last few years − with more satellite stands and sales at farmers’ markets and the new Taste of the Valley events − has coincided with the need for more workers. Larkland Stone, the Jamaican Liaison Service’s chief liaison officer in Toronto, says he doesn’t know if Jamaicans earn substantially more in Canada than back home. But he acknowledges it’s more. Jim McGregor’s says 10 Jamaicans now work for McGregor’s Produce. Most of them make slightly more than minimum wage, but the Jamaicans can earn more from “piece” wages when picking larger quantities of strawberries, sweet corn and beans.

But Wiltshire, who tends to sing while “She’s getting used to that,” he says of he works, isn’t complaining. He says it’s wife Rose Marie. “But you have to put food on the table. been an awesome experience working in Most of the factories are closing down, so Canada. “It’s good, I’ve met so many nice most people are losing their jobs.” Anderson, like several of the Jamai- people here.” cans working at McGregor’s, also makes ends meet with a small farm operation back home. His produces beans, sweet Quality work with 40 years experience peppers and a few other crops.

Workers put finishing touches on the new Italian flooring upstairs at the Arnprior Public Library. The $675,000 renovations are going along well, says chief librarian Karen Deluca. A new elevator, central staircase and renovated downstairs are all part of the work being done. Deluca says it is hoped the work will be done by the end of July. With 400 to 500 people coming through the library doors each day, the renovations are a welcome improvement.

Would the inactive CP Rail line, shown already grown up with weeds in the Rhoddy’s Bay area, make a good trail or roadway? Or should it be sold to private landowners if the tracks are torn up? Local councils have some decisions to make on the future of the line. Photo by John Carter

Rail trail pros, cons discussed Continued from front CP Rail has made it clear it wants to sell the whole corridor as a unit and not in small pieces, she said. So it makes sense such a purchase would have to be handled by Renfrew and Lanark counties if their municipalities along the track agree it should be kept in public hands, she said. “We’ve got to make our intentions known (so the counties can act).” Campbell said the most likely use would be for a recreational trail, although Petawawa Mayor Bob Sweet suggested it could be used as a highway. “Not through Sand Point and Braeside, you don’t,” she retorted. Campbell said that in stretches where the CP rail line is narrow, such as Sand Point, there may be better uses, such as parking. Coun. Jim McGregor recommended the counties buy the corridor for future use as a recreational trail if the price isn’t too onerous. “I think it would be a wonderful asset,” he said. “But the big question is, can we afford it.” He suggested that in light of several major bike-car collisions recently in the city, there are many bicyclists in Ottawa looking for a safe place to ride. Connecting the rail line with a trail into Ottawa could bring them up the Valley, he said. “This could really help tourism if you link it in with the one million people in Ottawa,” he said. “Not all of them want to drive out here.” Campbell wondered if the area needs a second recreational trail when the CN line trail isn’t fully utilized. “I’m still not convinced recreation trails bring more economic activity (to an area),” she said. She pointed out that McNabBraeside residents are already paying through its county levy for eight per cent of the maintenance of the K&P trail. And that trail could be extended, thus adding to the bill, she added. McGregor agreed that rural residents in McNab-Braeside already have plenty of places to walk, but added that with the

extension of the four lanes up Highway 417, the area’s population will grow. “I see the day coming when we may need it (corridor),” he said. “It may be 50 years ... but now is the time the asset is available.” Deputy Mayor Elmer Raycroft said if the route is to be maintained as a trail, the counties should buy and maintain it. “We (municipalities) don’t have the resources or the staff,” he said. Coun. Brad McIlquham suggested the municipality could consider developing the line as a trail in the future if grants are made available. PROTECT THE TRACKS Carleton Place Mayor Paul Dulmage says the tracks are not as important as the corridor itself, which is something he would like to see protected. “As long as there is no action, the tracks are still there … that is good news to me,” said Carleton Place Mayor Paul Dulmage. “(CPR) could have gotten rid of it a lot quicker if they wanted to.” Carleton Place CAO Paul Knowles said at this point, there have been no updates as to what will be done with the rail line. Early in the year, Carleton Place council sent a letter to affected municipalities to find out if everyone was on the same page. A joint meeting of municipalities was held in Renfrew County. “Basically, the same sentiments were passed on from all of the communities,” said Dulmage. “They don’t want to lose the corridor.” The issue is in the hands of the upper tier governments, rather than in each individual municipality. “In our areas affected, it’s Renfrew and Lanark Counties that are (dealing with this),” said Dulmage. The mayor said his main concern is seeing the ownership remain consistent. “We don’t want to own a mile of track here and a mile of track there,” he said, as it would defeat the purpose of owning any of the land at all.

Continued from Page 8 “He loved his community and he loved his neighbours,” said Miller. “And he was a leader down here. “He kept in touch with all his neighbours, and not many people do that these days. People don’t visit their neighbours these days, but Larry Rawn did.” Another close friend, and fellow organizer of the derby, was Don Storie. “He gave so much to the community,” he said. “He was just a pillar of the community. Lots of people went to Larry for help, and if he couldn’t help he’d find someone who could.” Storie was shaken by the news, with a phone call about 10 o’clock that night, especially since he had been up in the Golden Lake area with Rawn up until about 7 p.m. where Rawn was spending time with one of his grandchildren, Taylor. Rawn is survived by wife Ann; children Kenny, Terry, Ron and Angela; grandchildren, nieces and a nephew; several other family members; and many friends. The wake was held Monday at the Pilon Family Funeral Home in Arnprior. The funeral was held in the Horton Community Centre Tuesday morning with Rev. Brian Barr presiding.

Dorzek benefit planned Friends are rallying around the White Lake family of the volunteer firefighter killed in car crash on Waba Road July 2. A benefit dance is being planned to assist the widow and young children of Jarett Dorzek. Dorzek is survived by his wife, Kelsey, two young sons and another child on the way. Tentative plans are to hold the dance at the Nick Smith Centre Friday, Aug. 27, during the White Pine Festival, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. The $10 admission fee and money made from raffles would all go the Dorzeks to help ease funeral expenses and put money away for the children’s education. Anyone interested in donating raffle items should contact Candace Galkowski, Julie Brenner or Kourtney Dewar. A trust fund has also been set up at the Arnprior Scotiabank to accept donations for the family.

Organizers pleased with plans for Aug. 27-29 event SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com White Pine Festival organizers hoped for an event that would encompass the whole town and involve as many groups and individuals as possible and the Aug. 27-29 affair is shaping up to do just that. From No Frills near the highway to Abba Diamonds on the other side of the river and at many locations in between, festival features are piling up. “It’s just been phenomenal,” says co-organizer Art Smith. “Everything is just coming into place. We have people interested in it from all over the place.” There are still some things left on the checklist, though, so organizers would still like to hear from anyone who might want to get involved. “We’re looking for buskers, clowns, people who would like to do face-painting,” says Smith. Volunteers of all kinds are welcome, he adds. Also, buses will be running on Saturday to carry people to various events and extra parking has been offered by Reid Bros. at the car lot and at the

Also planned for Saturday are a ball tournament at Abba diamonds and a host of downtown features, including bounce activities by Circus Delights, numer-

A magic show by Magicalaurie, who recently returned from the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she competed in the Close Up Magic Challenge, is sure to be a highlight of the festival, says Smith. Local entertainment, including line dancing and numerous Valley favourites, will be on offer at the Giant Tiger stage. The beer garden runs from noon until midnight Saturday in

the GT parking lot. Organizers have dubbed Saturday night’s street dance Dancing Under the Stars. Local favourites Carvalho will be the featured performers. A fundraiser for arthritis will feature a mechanical bull and paintball shooting. Hungry festival-goers will surely not be disappointed, says Smith. Along with several food vendors and community breakfasts, Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home will host a bake sale. There will be a fashion show at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday at Arnprior District High School featuring clothes from several Arnprior and area retailers. Admission to the dance is a $5 festival button.

The Arnprior airport will have a barbecue Saturday and various aircraft will be on display. The Mile High Parachute Club will be doing demonstrations. No Frills will host a pig

roast on Saturday, as well, and there’s a Saturday night dinner at the Christian Education Centre The Arnprior Mall will be a hub of activity as well with the Arnprior Fire Department planning a large display and a craft show planned in the shopping centre. SUNDAY Sunday’s events are centred at Robert Simpson Park. “It all moves down to the park on Sunday,” says Smith. The Lions Club will host a pancake breakfast on Sunday from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Masonic Lodge. River of Life will offer a nondenominational service at Robert Simpson Park at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday. A classic car show will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Registration is $5 and seven trophies will be awarded.

Now Accepting New Patients Clear Liberal alternative for RNP riding: Tabbert With the Liberal Express summer tour underway, the party is offering Canadians a clear alternative to Stephen Harper’s “wasteful and unaccountable government,” says Renfrew-NipissingPembroke federal candidate Christine Tabbert. “We’re heading across Canada this summer on the Liberal Express to show Canadians why we’re the only progressive, compassionate, and responsible alternative to the Conservatives,” Tabbert said in a news release. The tour headed by Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff will visit Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Aug. 9. “Stephen Harper’s only plan for Canada is adding to the Conservatives’ record $54 billion deficit by cutting taxes for profitable corporations and wasting billions of taxpayer dollars while average Canadian families struggle to make ends meet, ” said Tabbert. “The Conservatives have yet to answer for the $1 billion wasted on the G20’s poor planning, fake lakes and gazebos, or why they’ve left our oceans vulnerable to oil spills,” she added. “They have yet to show any remorse for their contemptuous approach to Parliament by shutting it down when the questions get to too tough and running roughshod over Canadians’ right to information.” Tabbert said that the Conservative actions are in sharp contrast to the clear Liberal alternative of “paying down the deficit and investing in priorities that will ease the burden on our families and help Canada move forward again: Learning and innovation, caring for our families, and restoring Canadian global leadership. “Instead of borrowing more of your money to give profitable corporations another break, a Liberal government will invest in these strategic priorities and pay down the deficit by freezing our corporate tax rates until we can afford to lower them again,” she said. Tabbert pointed out that Canada’s corporate taxes are already among the lowest in the G7 and 25 per cent lower than its biggest competitor, the United States. Under the Jean Chrétien and Paul Martin governments, the Liberals cut corporate taxes responsibly, dropping them by more than one-third in the last decade – from 28% in 2000 to 18% today, she noted. “The Conservatives spent Canada into deficit before the recession began, and now they want to line the pockets of profitable corporations when we can’t afford to,” Tabbert concluded. “Canadians should reject their economic mismanagement for a clear Liberal alternative that will make careful, strategic investments in learning, care and Canadian leadership so that all Canadians can help build our future.”

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.

‘Family-friendly’ funding pleases Gallant MP’s farm prison plan called ‘bizarre’ In her July column, Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant put the spotlight on the government’s funding of Being Your Brothers Keeper, Canada’s initiative on world-wide maternal, newborn and child health She suggested the Canadian contribution of $2.85 billion over five years will be popular in the riding, as the government’s emphasis on “family-friendly” policies

JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant has responded to complaints about the federal government’s phasing out of prison farms by saying she will work with Valley farmers to place convicts with prison farm experience on area farms as labourers. However, her comments in a news release last week flabbergasted Renfrew County Chapter of the National Farmers Union (NFU) president Dave Mackay. “I’m not sure where she got that idea,” he said, calling her proposal “bizarre.” “It would be absurd to expect us to take convicts on our farms,” he said. “That’s crazy. We aren’t capable of that. We don’t have the training … we’re not corrections officers.” In her release, Gallant said “the NFU has identified the issue of prison farms as a priority for its organization,” so she will work on the matter with members of the Renfrew County NFU. “I am always available to work with local farm organizations on issues they deem important to them.” Gallant said that “an honest day of hard work on a farm may be just what is required to straighten out offenders from the big cities who get mixed up with gangs and the wrong crowd and turn to a life of drugs and stealing.” Mackay agrees with the value of hard work, noting that is why the NFU is lobbying Correctional Services, which operates federal prisons, not to shut down its prison farms. “We think the program is important,” he said. “It teaches them (prisoners) some sort of life skills.” He said many prisoners have never had a job and getting them up at 5:30 a.m. to labour on a prison farm is a good way to encourage them to be responsible and productive. They may not end up being farmers, but at least they learn how to work, he added. “It seems to me that one of the problems with prison is that they have nothing to do.” However, that doesn’t mean convicts should be shipped to farms outside the prisons, he said. Mackay said the NFU is also worried the phasing out of prison farms will result in the selling off of prime farm land for housing. “Most politicians don’t see the value in farming,” he lamented. Gallant pointed out that one of Correctional Services principal concerns is the need to

MP Cheryl Gallant sharing a word with Renfrew County NFU president Dave Mackay. rehabilitate criminal offenders back into society with marketable skills. However, it has been found that almost none of the convicts spending time on the prison farms are finding employment in the agricultural sector, she said. In order for the prison farms to remain open to provide marketable skills to convicts who have paid their debt to society, employment opportunities must be available, she added. “A job is the best deterrent from returning to a life of crime,” said Gallant. “It may be that farm owners are unaware of the availability of trained farm workers from our penal system. With the closest prison farm to Renfrew County near Kingston, there may be an opportunity to match these individuals here in Eastern Ontario.” Gallant pointed out that today’s agricultural producer is required to have many skills to run a successful farm operation. In addition to being able to operate and maintain heavy machinery and equipment, he or she must be skilled in animal husbandry, part veterinarian, part mechanic, part book keeper, part weatherman, and horticulturalist, all with an ethic of hard work, she said. “If someone, particularly a young person, learned half those skills that make a successful farmer, they would be a better citizen. “If members of the local farming community are interested in matching ex-convicts, trained on a prison farm, with local farms providing room and board and employment as they transition from their previous location, I would be pleased to assist them in approaching Correctional Services Canada with this proposal,” concluded Gallant. “I think she’s just trying to put the ball back in our court,” said Mackay. “It’s hard enough to keep ourselves in operation … without having to take on duties from Correctional Services.”

Chairman Bob Schreader pleased with many budget initiatives The Renfrew County Catholic District School Board (RCCDSB) says it will invest $54.5 million in quality faith-based education for the 2010-11 school year after unanimously passing its budget July 19. “This is a substantial amount of money, and I’m pleased to present our school board’s annual budget as an investment in our future,” said board chairman Bob Schreader. “As trustees, our responsibility as stewards of our finances is to ensure that the resources and planning are in place to provide the best possible academic and spiritual programs for our students, and we have met and surpassed that challenge,” he added. This year’s budget deliberations once again wrestled with the significant challenges faced by the province’s small, rural school boards, said Schreader. To balance the new budget, the board had to draw on about $500,000 from its reserve funds. “The bottom line is that the provincial resources we receive are not sufficient to meet our students’ needs,” said Schreader. “Using our reserve funds is the only way we can present a balanced budget as we maintain the high quality of education we are determined to provide for every student in our system.” KEY BUDGET ITEMS The board chairman highlighted a number of initiatives that are a part of the financial plan for 2010-2011. The board says they reflect its commitment to excellence and the province’s mandate to increase student achievement and close gaps in achievement between identified student populations. Among the key RCCDSB budget items for 20102011 are: • $178,267 for the School Effectiveness Strategy, which provides dedicated efforts to enhance pupils’ literacy and numeracy skills; • $100,000 to build on the Board’s leading-edge E-Learning Initiative to engage new technology in the classroom and provide on-line homework support for students from Grades 7 to 12; • $87,805 to continue the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program which strengthens the ties between high school and the work world; • $83,300 for library support; • $80,000 to continue the popular Tutors in the Classroom Program, which employs 49 university and college students who provide extra coaching and support to students in all of the county’s Catholic schools; • $63,200 for the Specialist High Skills Major Programs that give high school students a head-start in career fields such as hospitality and tourism, health and wellness, and transportation; • $53,600 dedicated to Community Use of Schools. This will build on the School Board’s commitment to maintain strong ties between school, home, parish and the community by encouraging full community use of school facilities; • $52,907 for French as a Second Language. EARLY-LEARNING FUNDS The 2010-2011 operating budget also includes funding to support Early Learning–full day junior and senior kindergarten programs, which will be introduced in September 2010 at Holy Name Catholic School in Pembroke, St. Mary’s Catholic School in Deep River and St. John Bosco Catholic School in Barry’s Bay. “We are already planning for next year,” said Schreader. “The first expansion of this new Early Learning Program will provide full-day kindergarten at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School in Renfrew beginning in September 2011. This is an exciting area of growth for us, allowing us to partner with families to provide the best possible start for their children’s educational careers.” The school board has also maintained a sub-

ogy hardware upgrade plan to increase technology in all classrooms across the Board. This supports year two of a five-year commitment to provide technology to the point of instruction and learning for all students. These upgrades include laptops for students, smart boards in the classroom and improved internet access and video conferencing functionality. As part of a $1 million threeyear information technology initiative, more than $300,000 will be spent in 2010-2011 upgrading technology infrastructure. Plans are in place to have all schools wireless by 2011-2012. “It is very exciting when we look at all of the initiatives set out in this budget,” concludes Schreader. “But I have to note that our board is facing significant challenges and we continue to press the provincial government to support us appropriately for the important services we provide.” The Catholic school board’s dedication to inclusive education is another area of budgeting pressure. County-wide the Board employs more than 100 educational assistants to provide special education assistance in the classroom. Provincial funding falls short of the local Board’s needs by about $1.4 million. That level of investment means that funding is redistributed from other areas such as administration and plant operations to support the special education program.

stantial commitment to summer school, providing transportation to nine sites county wide, including St. Joseph’s in Arnprior. Other special initiatives included in the budget range from an enhancement of the county-wide arts program that will see a team of specialist music teachers visiting every school through the course of the school year to $6,000 dedicated to encouraging students who have left school to return and earn their diplomas, and another $6,000 for parent involvement. The board says it is excited about continuing the interactive Homework Help initiative. Students in Grades 7 to 10 are able to have math questions answered by tutors and have access to the Homework Help website for Tutorials, Listen and Learn Sessions and Best Sessions-for common questions. “These are just a few examples of how our money is dedicated to providing quality learning opportunities,” said Schreader. “This is mirrored by the $1.2 million of school renewal and minor tangible capital items from the capital portion of our budget, which is dedicated to providing educational resources and environments that will support those program initiatives.” Included in the capital planning for the upcoming year is the construction of a new St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School in Petawawa. In addition, this budget supports an aggressive technol-

The provincial trend of decreasing enrolment hits small, rural school boards especially hard. Smaller families mean enrolment in the RCCDSB has dropped by 300 students ($3 million) over the past two years. Many costs, however, remain the same or increase despite declines in enrolment.

Hazardous waste program expanded BLAIR EDWARDS blair.edwards@metroland.com Throwing out hazardous waste just became a whole lot easier, says Stewardship Ontario. The non-profit agency has added 13 new material categories and thousands of new products to its list regulated by the province. Stewardship Ontario is a non-profit agency responsible for overseeing the province’s recycling and hazardous waste removal programs. Starting this month, the organization rolled out Orange Drop across the province, a program designed to make it easier for residents to remove their hazardous waste. The list of materials now accepted includes batteries, pharmaceuticals, syringes and aerosol containers. Orange Drop follows the municipal hazardous or special waste program, introduced in 2008, said Sean Magee, Stewardship Ontario’s promotion and education co-ordinator. The special waste program accepted nine waste material categories including paint and solvents. The program is expected to divert 27 million kilograms of trash from Ontario’s landfills – 10 million more kilograms than last year. “The more we can divert away from landfills the longer their lifespan will be,” said Magee. “The main goal is to protect the environment.” Residents pay no fee to drop the items off at the province’s 92 municipal recycling depots, 2,700 pharmacies and 738

retail stores that collect either or both paint, batteries. The cost of the program is passed on to manufacturers. “There’s going to be more drop-off locations,” said Magee. “Any cost along the way (to consumers) is going to be a barrier.” Additional drop-off centres will encourage more people to recycle their hazardous waste, he said. Stewardship Ontario is currently promoting the new program across the province using radio, television and print ads as well as sending a representative to festivals, fairs and other large events where people congregate. The organization has organized 217 special waste collection events across the province over the next few months. Information about drop-off sites is available on the website makethedrop.ca; the program is also promoted on social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter. “Orange Drop is designed to raise awareness about what is considered a hazardous or special waste and to encourage Ontarians to make returning these items part of their regular recycling routine,” said Lyle Clark, vice-president of operations of Stewardship Ontario. The hazardous and special waste dropoff spots for Arnprior are: • Renfrew Landfill Site, 376 Bruce St., 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday from May to mid-August; • Waste Management, 254 Westbrook Rd., Stittsville, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday.

3711 Zeek Can you provide a ‘forever family’ for this wonderful companion? Zeek was brought to the shelter in May after his owner was no longer able to look after him. He is a very handsome brown, one-and-a-half-year-old male tabby with white markings. Zeek, who has been neutered, is a quiet cat. He enjoys attention but is not demanding. Zeek loves to be petted and brushed but is not fond of being picked up and carried. Zeek is good with other cats.

# 3149 Ripley Ripley is a special cat who is sure to keep his new family entertained. He has been at the shelter for almost two years after he was brought in as a stray. Ripley is a very handsome, seven-yearold neutered male He is an active, curious, outgoing cat who likes to explore. Ripley can be very affectionate - he loves to climb onto your shoulders and ride around. However, if he is not in the mood for attention he will let you know. He has lots of personality and can be quite silly. He likes to burrow under the blankets in the cat beds and poke his face out. He would be best suited in an adult-only home where he is the only pet.

Regular Council Meetings will resume in September 2010 on the first and third Tuesday of each month. The Public is invited and encouraged to attend. Should you wish to address Council at a meeting please call before noon the Thursday prior to the meeting to be placed on the Agenda.

A new one-stop source of information and services for employment seekers, employers and the community will be launched Monday, Aug. 3. The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities Employment Services Network is run through Employment Ontario. In Renfrew County, five organizations, including ontrac Employment Resource Services in Arnprior, have been chosen by the province to deliver the province’s employment services. They will offer flexible options and assistance to clients who are looking for work, require direction in planning career pathways, or are considering training and educational opportunities as a means of achieving a career goal. As a result of the changes, some agencies that have been providing employment services in Renfrew County will be closing their centres July 31. However, ontrac Employment Resource Services, which has been successfully operating for the past 11 years in Arnprior, will continue to service its area. Each Employment Services Centre will be equipped to deliver a full range of employment services to all individuals who need assistance in their job search, from developing an effective resume and cover letter to gaining access to on-thejob training experiences with local employers. The centres will also support people who have been laid off from their jobs through programs such as Second Career. Employers can benefit from using the service by having access to individuals who are seeking employment and by gaining a better understanding of programs and services that may benefit them when hiring new staff or providing training to new employees. All services provided to job seekers and employers are free. The staff have extensive experience in providing employment support to individuals who are having difficulty defining their career and employment goals. They will work collaboratively as part of a greater network of organizations that can help both job seekers and employers through ongoing communication. They will also make appropriate referrals to other organizations that can assist individuals with reaching their full potential. The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has assigned each organization an area where they will be responsible for providing Employment Services, although individuals may access service at their centre of choice. Ontrac (613-623-4680) will support the Arnprior area, while Employment Networks will

Case of the wandering bird

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way southwest appear in the northeast. Straying could also be some sort of species survival mechanism, with individuals seeking new and favourable habitats to exploit. The reasons birds stray out of range will never be fully understood. But the fact that they do gives some birders the impetus to stay close to home. When a rarity is encountered, the reward is not only personal satisfaction. A special social status is awarded to the finder when other birders come to see the prized find. This past weekend I saw

a bird normally found in Texas. How I came to see it was simply good fortune. Ann and I had just finished a marsh survey in the Bay of Quinte and were on our way back to our Belleville hotel when we met several birders standing by the road. After it was discerned we knew each other, they asked me if I had seen “It.” I replied: “What It?” They said: “The Blackbellied Whistling-Duck, of course!” I said: “What WhistlingDuck?” They thought I was joking because apparently the sighting had been posted for four days on the provincial rare bird list-serve. When they learned I hadn’t been on the Internet for a week, they finally disclosed its location. It was only 20 kilometres away. After a speedy checkout, we drove to the small pond near Milford where we found several happy birders looking through scopes and cameras at a Black-bellied WhistlingDuck. See DUCK, Page 27

Beginning birdwatchers find each and every species equally new and exciting. Whether it is a Red-winged Blackbird or a Barred Owl, the satisfaction of meeting a new species is the same. After many years increased familiarity with local birds results in fewer endorphin highs, so birders start visiting different regions. Many become world travellers; with nearly 10,000 species inhabiting the globe, new birds always await encounter. But one needs not travel far to see unfamiliar species. Birds have wings and many regularly show up well beyond the bounds of their usual range. Recently an albatross was spotted soaring over a Kingston beach. These oceanic birds usually appear inland only after encouragement from a hurricane (oddly, not the case for this bird). Other birds wander to distant places because of defective directional hardwiring. Such is likely the case when flycatchers from the

Fined for fishing with set lines A Renfrew County man has been fined a total of $1,600 for ice fishing with unattended set lines on two separate occasions. E d w a r d Recoskie of Barry’s Bay pleaded guilty to two charges of fishing with set lines and was fined $800 on each conviction. Recoskie also received a three-year suspension of fishing privileges. Court heard that Ministry of Natural Resources conservation officers apprehended Recoskie Jan. 15 and again Jan. 21, as he was checking his set lines on area lakes. Justice of the Peace Nancy Mitchell heard the case. The ministry reminds the public that fishing with set lines is illegal and can be a threat to healthy fish populations. Lines must be closely monitored or in hand when ice fishing.

Unlikely Sainthood of Madeline McKay coming to Neat Cafe

Coming: Quilts from Hell The Valley Players are rehearsing their upcoming production intriguingly called Quilts from Hell The Almonte-based group will present the theatrical production as part of the Fibrefest 2010 celebrations. Quilts from Hell will run at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum on Sept. 10, 11 and 12.

It takes place in a religious commune where Madeline, a con artist, gains a following claiming to be the holy messenger of the Virgin Mary. Her life seems good until the “real” Mary starts to pay her visits. She reveals less-than-holy goings-on in the commune. Madeline must choose the right path to save those she cares about. 400076

Echo echo Productions is presenting The Unlikely Sainthood of Madeline McKay by multi-award-winning playwright Joseph Aragon next week. See it July 29 to Aug. 1 and Aug. 5 and 6 at Neat Coffee Shop in Burnstown at 8 p.m. This show is a dark comedy about secrets and deceptions, faith and redemption.

How to spot the danger signs for problem gambling Problem Gambling Prevention Week was marked across the province recently. According to the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC), there are a number of gambling blind

spots and behaviors that, if left unchecked and ignored, may lead to a problem. “RGC research shows that an estimated 26,300 people in Ottawa and the Counties of Renfrew,

Prescott and Russell are experiencing a moderate to severe gambling problem,” explained CEO Jon Kelly of the Responsible Gambling Council. “A gambling problem isn’t something

that suddenly appears,” he said. “There are usually early warning signs that can tip you off to a potential problem. We want people to check their blind spot now – to avoid a problem in

the future.” People can access problem gambling resources, find out about events in their community and look for potential gambling blind spots at www.checkyourblindspot.ca.

Frequent ARTHRITIS Pain free in 2 weeks! This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products,physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100 testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:  Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and #1 night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CAI tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ONCancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.

Ottawa mayoral candidate Jim Watson attended the roast beef dinner at the Galetta Community Hall last Saturday where he joined Mcnab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell at the antique display outside. Watson, a former Ottawa mayor, has visited West Carleton at least twice since declaring his candidacy. It is unknown if other candidates have done similar. Campbell is expected to run for mayor of McNab-Braeside again in the Oct. 25 election. She has credited Watson for being supportive in the township’s successful application for disaster relief funding.


Hogweed leaves its mark

Arnprior General Welding & Repairs

‘It blistered like a third degree burn’ DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com CARP – A West Carleton woman was still dealing with pain and blisters to her skin six days after she came in contact with what she said is giant hogweed. The woman, a friend of the newspaper who asked that her name be withheld from print, returned home to the Village of Carp after vacationing out of province with her young family. She noticed a strange plant in one of her gardens that stood less than two metres tall (some five feet). She couldn’t decide if it was Queen Anne’s Lace or dill weed. Not having heard about this summer’s invasion of giant hogweed, a noxious plant that can burn skin and cause permanent blindness, the experienced gardener pulled it out with her bare hands. “Then on Wednesday morning I woke up and had three huge blisters on my back,” she said. The blisters likely formed after slinging the weed over her right shoulder. “It was very painful just to touch it,” she said. “At first I thought I had a burn. It blistered like a third degree burn.” Contact with the weed’s clear, watery sap could have been worse. Her hands, strangely, are not affected. She plans to keep a close eye on her property and warns others in the village to take care. “I know my gardens, what’s in there

and what’s not,” she said. “This is like nothing I’ve seen before.” HOTLINE If you have seen what you suspect is giant hogweed, there is an invasive species hotline hosted by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, in conjunction with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. That number is 1-800-563-7711.
