Fires set near school, Grove Double arsons concern fire chief

JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Arson fires at John XXIII school and in Gillies Grove have Arnprior fire chief John Okum alarmed. He said both fires were quickly extinguished, but had the potential to be serious. The OPP have been called in to investigate

both blazes, he said. Okum said the Arnprior Fire Department was called to John XXIII at 5:11 a.m. Tuesday to attend to a fire in a dumpster. When firefighters checked the rest of the property, they found another fire in a plastic garbage pail on the other side of the school. See ‘OPP’, page 3

Town faces sludge dilemma JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

A major breakdown at the Arnprior sewage plant has forced the town to take emergency action to handle a growing backlog of sludge. Council agreed Monday to approve leasing a sludge dewatering system to be shipped in from Edmonton to temporarily replace

a Centrifuge machine that has malfunctioned. Councillors agreed they had no choice, despite concerns about cost and possible odour problems from the temporary dewatering equipment, which will operate outside the plant for at least the next four months at an estimated cost of more than $100,000.

ATVer dies as result of injuries suffered in crash with lawnmower JOHN CARTER

john.carter@metroland.com

JEFF DRAPER Facebook photo

A freak late-night collision between an all-terrain-vehicle and a riding lawnmower has killed a well-known Arnprior area sportsman. Jeffrey Draper, 28, died Monday as a result of the early Sunday morning crash in West Carleton, Ottawa Police report the ATV rear-ended the lawnmower about 3:45 a.m. near the corner of Kinburn Side Road and Mohrs Road. Draper, who was not wearing a

helmet, was thrown from the vehicle. The Kinburn resident suffered serious head injuries and was rushed to the Ottawa Hospital’s Civic campus. Friends and family rallied round, but Draper died during the day Monday. His organs were donated and could save up to five other people. In the original report on the crash, police said speed and alcohol factored in the collision. After an investigation by the Ottawa Police’s Collision Investigation Unit, a 26-year-old Pak-

Odour problem potential worries council Continued from front Town CAO Larry Donaldson explained that Renfrew has been “kind enough” to treat several loads of sludge at its plant since the July 14 breakdown to help Arnprior cope. However, because the plants use different processes, there is a limit to what Renfrew can take and the offer could be withdrawn at any time, he said. It is also costing the town about $7,000 a week in hauling and processing costs to have the sludge dewatered in Renfrew. Public works and engineering director Janet Collins said the town hasn’t been able to find any other municipalities that will take the 60 cubic metres of sludge a day generated at the Arnprior plant. As a result, the other option, leasing portable dewatering equipment, became the priority. The closest Centrifuge available immediately for lease was found in Edmonton, she said. Collins anticipated the equipment would arrive by week’s end and be operational about a day later. “It will be close, but I think we can manage until then,” she told council, noting the town does have some extra storage space. If not, the town has some local haulers on standby so their trucks could be used for storage in a pinch, said Donaldson. “I’m confident we have adequate storage capacity, but we’ll let council know immediately if that changes.” Collins assured council the town’s sewage is still being treated and chlorinated, but without the Centrifuge not as much of the solids are being removed. However, it’s still within standards, she noted. She stressed that the breakdown had

Inside this week’s Arnprior Chronicle

nothing to do with construction at the plant. A bearing seized up and damaged the machine’s housing and auger, but not its motor or electrical system, she said. The temporary dewatering equipment is needed as a short-term solution to give engineers time to scrutinize the plant’s damaged Centrifuge to see if and how it can be repaired, said Collins. If it can be dismantled and the parts fixed on site, it should be back in action quicker than if it has to be shipped away for repairs, Donaldson explained. He admitted there may be odour issues because the temporary plant is an external system. “We’ll try to mitigate it as much as possible,” he said, adding the town doesn’t have much choice but to bring in the plant to deal with the sludge. Coun. Jack Lammert urged town staff to be proactive on the odour issue and look into housing the unit in a plastic shed. “I don’t want to wait until the phone calls start coming,” he said. Collins said staff are consulting with the provincial ministry of environment on the issue and are looking into canopies or other means of controlling the smell. Given the time of year and construction at the plant, it is a concern, she said. Donaldson said staff have also asked Pace Dewatering Systems, which is providing the equipment, for advice on controlling smell. Coun. Nancy Black suggested nearby residents be alerted. “We’re asking people to be patient with us,” said Donaldson. “We hope to get back to normal soon.”

About 100 McNab-Braeside residents turned out July 14 to comment on the future direction of their township. Most waited to talk to township councillors and officials one-on-one after the formal part of the public meeting into the township’s comprehensive zoning bylaw at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Braeside. However, there were some verbal presentations, with most of the concerns relating to environmental protection areas, flood plane restrictions, in-home businesses regulations and an increase in frontage and lot size limits in the Campbell Drive area. The township also received a large number of written submissions at and after an open house the week before, which also attracted close to 100 people. Council will discuss the public input and possible revisions to the draft bylaw at a special meeting next Tuesday, Aug. 3 at 6 p.m., an hour before its regular meeting. However, it’s not likely to make a final decision on changes and pass the bylaw until the September meeting. Mayor Mary Campbell thanked resident for showing interest, stressing the bylaw provides the details for the

Phil Bayford, one of almost 100 residents attending McNab-Braeside’s comprehensive zoning public meeting, discusses his concerns with township building inspector Doug Schultz. township’s official plant that guides council on land use provisions and reflects how the community wants th area to develop. Several residents suggested the bylaw includes environmental protection provisions for water courses that no longer exist or only do sobriefly during the year. Planner Bruce Haworth advised residents to report changed water courses. so a planner can visit the area and update the maps and bylaws if appropriate.

Smell of smoke alarms neighbours Arnprior firefighters entered an Arnprior apartment Sunday afternoon to investigate a smell of smoke. It was the second such call in two weeks. Doug Miller of Citadel Crafts called the fire department about 2:30 p.m. after smelling smoke from the upstairs apartment and being unable to find anyone home. Firefighters used a ladder to enter the second-floor John Street apartment through a window and found a burned pizza in the sink. The smell had circulated throughout the complex through the air conditioning system. A call to an apartment a block away on July 10 was more serious. A ringing smoke alarm prompted neighbours to call the fire department. When they entered the second floor apartment through a window they found a smoking pot on the stove about to break out into a full-fledged fire. Fire chief John Okum said the apartment’s occupant was sound asleep, oblivious to the danger. The man could have succumbed to the smoke if the fire department wasn’t called, he said. Okum notes the incident proves the worth of smoke alarms and advises people to call the fire department if they hear an alarm or smell smoke.

OPP investigating fires Continued from front Anyone seeing anything suspicious in the area of the school early Tuesday morning is asked to call Arnprior OPP. With the fires breaking out in two places, it was obviously not accidental, Okum said. The fire in the pail had been set a short time prior to the fire department’s arrival, he noted. That fire was close to the school, so could have endangered the building, he said. The dumpster was far enough from the school to not be a threat. However, “any fire is dangerous,” said Okum, explaining firefighters have to be careful when approaching dumpster fires. There could be items such as aerosol cans in the garbage that could explode, he said. There are also environmental issues when garbage is burned, he added. “Lighting those fires is a Criminal Code offense,” he stressed. “It’s a serious issue.” Okum said residents in the area have a right to be concerned when someone sets fires in their neighbourhood. While it’s the first dumpster fire in Arnprior for some time, it’s caught the attention of emergency officials. “With the Grove (fire) and now this one, it’s starting to be a concern for the fire department,” Okum said.

GROVE FIRE The McNab-Braeside Fire Department and the OPP were called about 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 18 when Gillies House residents Alex Winter and Ron MacIntyre reported seeing two young males setting a fire in the area of Grove near their property. As the fire was close to the boundary of McNabBraeside and Arnprior, the town fire department was also called. By the time firefighters arrived, the fire had been put out by passers-by and OPP officers. It was the second fire in the Grove in the past couple of months. Anyone with information that might help identify the two suspects is asked to call Arnprior OPP.

Phil Bayford was one of several residents urging council to relax frontage changes that would restrict some Campbell Drive residents when they go to sever their property. “I never would have purchased my property if I knew my hands were going to be tied,” he said. Gordie Russett suggested council is unreasonable if it doesn’t allow existing property-owners to be grandfathered so their lots remain under the existing frontage and lot size provisions. Campbell said the changes were proposed because of the need for more separation of septic beds and wells what with modern household practices and extreme weather causing new pressures on those facilities. “There are safety reasons (for the changes).” However, council will consider grandfathering provisions for existing residents, she said. Two residents expressed concerns that the bylaw would ban a food-serving business in a Waba home and asked council to rethink the home occupation designation. Kathryn Lindsay urged council to ensure provisions protecting wetlands and restricting certain development in the flood plane along the Ottawa River be clear in the bylaw.

LETTER

Waste depot not working for Arnprior To the editor: I’m not sure who penned the editorial ‘Operational haphazard’, but a little more research should have gone into it before release. The last two paragraphs are far from impressive. The group actually includes, I believe, four municipalities, and the principle is admirable, but as far as Arnprior’s participation goes, it’s a disappointing failure. Last year only 138 residents participated, and on checking a couple of weeks ago this year will not be much better. About three years ago, an environmental group planned a one-day collection where residents could bring their household hazardous waste products to a gathering location (one-day collection) where volunteers would load these items into their own vehicles, list all the Arnprior residences whose waste it was and deliver it to our shared depot in Renfrew. Good plan? Not so. Three days before the collection day, I received a notice that what we planned

was in fact illegal in Ontario. I found out quickly about all the licensing required in Ontario. Licensing to collect household hazardous waste, licensing to transport such products on provincial highways, very expensive liability insurance and a number of other requirements. Obviously the project went down the drain very quickly, as the insurance alone would cost approximately $800. The moral of this story is simply that, it costs less to hold single-day events and pay an experienced licensed HHW operator to collect and remove this dangerous waste from our community. It has also been stated to me that reimbursement would be forthcoming from the Ontario government (not yet confirmed). From all the literature I have read, and a number of events attended, this is the most practical route to take. The alternative is to continue to send this material to our landfill site or down the drain as it is now. Isn’t it time to take positive action now? Douglas C. Munro Arnprior council candidate

Re, Page 1 the July 22 Chronicle-Guide and Mr. Lang’s comments regarding the recent appointment of David Johnston as Canada’s next Governor-General. I can confirm for you that, indeed, David did live in Arnprior on John Street in l947 for one year. His dad owned the Cochrane Dunlop/Firestone Cockshutt Implements store. I have known David for some time and he shared that fact with me some time ago. My connection with him is re the University of Waterloo. I have a scholarship at that university. My most recent communication with him was immediately after he was appointed GG. Canada will be well-served by David in the office of Governor-General. His background and leadership, in education, as well as other disciplines, is world renowned. He is exactly what is needed, particularly at this time, and I, like so many others know, as Canada’s next Governor-General Mr. Johnston, will execute the responsibilities of that high office with honour and distinction. Community service has been one of his main focuses for many years. Betty Fevreau Arnprior

MP wrong on G20 protest response

Council has full roster this summer From page 4 And that’s exactly what Deputy Mayor Elmer Raycroft did. Vote yourself a holiday. (Councillor Dunlop was absent and Mayor Campbell can only vote if it is a tie). This was to be a busy summer, with all that is coming up now and this fall, council needs to have their full roster of regular meetings. Here’s just a partial list:  the comprehensive zoning bylaw, which affects all McNabBraeside ratepayers has to be amended after public input;  the Miller Company application for the Braeside Quarry

expansion and asphalt plant is finally coming to the public input stage so all of the Miller studies and peer reviews are to be in; council might want to read and discuss these:  contaminated water concerns for the people of Braeside; will council commission a study to look for the source of the contamination?  comprehensive handling of many noise bylaw violations. And, we should mention, there is an election this fall.

To the editor: I was very disappointed and sad to see Cheryl Gallant justifying the abuses of power and money that took place during the G20 summit in Toronto. Having viewed evidence in private footage, I believe at least some of these incidents were staged, in order to justify the expenditure and to allow the abuses of police power which were to follow, denying citizens’ freedom of peaceful expression (signs, speeches, music, poetry, etc.).

Ground-mounted solar preferable to roof plan To the editor: Re. the Town of Arnprior solar photovoltaic program. I have noted with interest that the Town of Arnprior has approved a feasibility study to determine if they should proceed with a project to install a solar photovoltaic program on the roof of the Nick Smith Centre at an estimated cost of $925,560 to $1,183,739, for a 98.0-kw or a 140.2-kw installation The study contains a cost of $6,495 for inspection and engineering analysis for structural suitability of the arena roof. Arena roofs are designed to carry snow loads only and are required to have a structural review and report completed every five years. To add solar panels to the roof will probably require structural improvements, but at what cost? The project is proposed to be placed on 26,400-square-feet of the roof that was replaced last year. To expect that portion of the roof to be maintenance-free for 20 years is, in my opinion, wishful thinking The project does have merit, however, with a payback period

if 10.7 to 14.5 years, depending on the system that might be used. A ground mount system seems to be a better option. However, the only costing seems to be an option for a lO-kwh installation for $75,000. It seems to me that the funds for a feasibility study should include a ground mount installation equal to 140-kwh or larger Where would a ground mount installation be constructed? The Town of Arnprior owns property outside its boundaries with access to the hydro distribution system. One parcel of land contains 57 acres of which approximately 35 acres might be suitable for a ground mount system. Another parcel contains approximately nine acres of land. Then there is land at the municipal airport that is not fully utilized and perhaps some of that land might be made available. Council should change the terms of reference for the study to include all options since some land for the project is already owned by the Town of Arnprior. These are times when new ad-

ditional revenue streams must be found. The proposed size of 140.2 kwh and the system of solar panels with a feed-in rate of 73 cents per kwh has a potential revenue of $99,800 to $120,800 per year over a 20-year period. The revenue potential over the 20-year period could be estimated at $2,500,000 leaving a net profit to the town of $1,000,000 after the maintenance costs and payback period. I would hope that Council will consider a ground-mounted system over a roof system due to the unknown life expectancy of the arena roof and maintenance costs over the 20-year period. A ground-mounted system has the potential for a larger system than 140.2 kwh, which could be installed in phases to increase revenues in the future. The cost appears to be less and the life of the system would be greater by not having any potential roof replacement in 20 years, or less. (The foregoing information is based on a staff report submitted to Council on June 7, 2010.) Ted Strike Arnprior

The musicians who provided free entertainment outside Giant Tiger in Arnprior on Canada Day should be applauded, says letter-writer.

What a pair of great Canadians, eh To the editor: I just wanted to add my two cents with respect and thanks to the people involved at the Giant Tiger parking lot on Canada Day. I noticed that there was little to no recognition to those giving hearts. I think Arnprior should be proud to have such great giv-

ing individuals living here. So I want to say thank you very much to Gary and John (two guys on guitar) and guests Howie LeBrun, George Harrison, Cory Scheel, Giant Tiger and all the volunteers. Well done, everyone. J. Murphy Arnprior

Basketball takes ADHS player to Argentina, Winnipeg PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

Arnprior District High School athlete Mike Shoveller is proving success comes to those who chase their goals. A member of the ADHS Redmen junior boys basketball team, and Goulbourn Hornets of the Eastern Ontario Basketball Association, the soon-to-be Grade 10 student learned of a try-out for Team Ontario’s Under-15 team in Ottawa. “I went to an open try-out for Team Ontario in Ottawa in May. I made the top 60 (players) and went to Toronto. Then I made the top 30 and went back, and made the top 15,” sums up Shoveller’s successful road in a nutshell. Then, from July 10-19, Shoveller and his Ontario teammates travelled to Argentina where they met the hosts and

a number of other South American teams. “We lost to an Under-17 team by 20 points, and then lost by one point in overtime,” Shoveller said of the first two games. But then the wins started coming. “We defeated Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay in a tournament, but lost on point differential,” Shoveller pointed out. “We beat Argentina on their home floor. That was a highlight. The crowd wasn’t too pleased,” he added with a grin. The son of Bruce and Kim Shoveller of Arnprior, Mike is also one of 12 players to make Ontario’s Under-15 team that will be competing at the Canadian championships next week in Winnipeg. Team Ontario coach Jeff Giovanatti

is pleased with what the Arnprior athlete brings to the table. “Mike is young kid with a very bright upside. Aside from the obvious (6’ 9” frame), Mike is a true character kid,” Giovanatti observed, adding Shoveller is passionate about learning the game of basketball. “He has displayed this to the Ontario coaching staff by his continued development with us this summer where he has earned a position in our final 12. He is a big kid, with an even bigger heart. The future is bright for Mike Shoveller.” The team leaves this weekend for Winnipeg, and Shoveller looks ahead to the experience. “I’m really looking forward to it. It should be a lot of fun.” “It’s been a great summer so far,” he says.

REMEMBERING THE LOWE BROTHERS (AND NOW THE FATHER) Several Arnprior area fishermen, friends of the Lowe family, took part in the sixth annual Lowe Memorial Fishing Derby June 27. The derby is held in memory of brothers Robert and Stephen Lowe, who drowned in a boating accident on White Lake Aug. 1, 2004. Among the participants, from left, are Dave Craig of Arnprior, Robin Kean and son Connor Lowe, Steve O’Connor, the brothers’ parents Diane and Ron Lowe, and Kevin Fabian and Dave Colton, both of Arnprior. Shawn Coombes caught the largest fish of the day, a 5.63-pounder, while Jeff List and Clancy Mulvihill of Arnprior had the biggest aggregate catch with five fish weighing 18 lb., 1 oz. The fishermen, and the community as a whole, was shocked to hear that Ron Lowe, the deputy mayor of Whitewater Region, died suddenly late Saturday of a heart attack. Funeral services were held at St. Andrew’s United Church in Beachburg Wednesday. Photo by Kristine O’Connor

An Arnprior golfer has taken a stranglehold in the battle for the Ottawa Citizen Amateur Golf Championship. Three-time Ottawa City and District Champion Allen McGee of Arnprior leads the way by seven strokes with a 214 total following three rounds of play in the four-round event that ends today (Thursday). McGee, who has finished second in the competition four times, grabbed the lead with a 69 at the Loch March Golf & County Club July 21. He followed that up with a 70 Monday at the Kanata Golf and Country Club. Renfrew Golf Club’s Dwight Reinhart is tied for second, seven back, after being only one stroke behind after two rounds. His two-round total of 73-72 had him on McGee’s heels after

two rounds, but he shot a 76 Monday. A former club professional at Renfrew, Reinhart is the 2010 OVGA Match Play Champion, and the winner of two CPGA Ottawa Zone Championships before he regained his amateur status. Other area golfers still contention are Arnprior’s Chris Bernard and Kevin Mulvihill. They were fourth and a fifth respectively after two rounds with scores of 148 and 149. Bernard fired rounds of 7771, and Mulvihill 77-72. Bernard shot 76 Monday to stay within 10 shots of the lead. The tournament opened with 136 players competing, of which 72 advanced through the secondround cut. They include Renfrew’s Jason Allen (161), Stephane Pare (161) and Ben Allen (162) and Arnprior’s Jeff McCormick (159) and Mike Payer (165).

News from the Arnprior Golf Club: members excel DAVE BLAKER Arnprior Golf Club

Arnprior Golf Club’s members have been doing well at a number of competitions. As of the second round of the Ottawa Citizen Men’s Amateur Championship, Allen McGee sits in first with Chris Bernard in fourth and Kevin Mulvihill fifth. Rob McIntosh won the OVGA Men’s B Class Field Day held at Upper Canada. On the Ladies side, the team finished second in the Mulvihill Cup last weekend.

In the July 22 Men’s Night, Matt Mulvihill took first in A Class with 22 points, while Kevin Mulvihill held second with 19 points. In B Class, Peter Leroy prevailed with 20.5 points, followed closely by Joe Nych with 20 points. Ken Graham and Dave Kelly split top honours for C Class with 23 points each. Jim Stack placed second with 22.5. Dave Blaker and Steve Ciphery shared the top spot in D class. In the A/B Skins, Kevin Mulvihill took two with birdies on holes 3 and 7; Steve Dontigny birdied number 6, Matt Mulvi-

hill birdied number 4 and Matt Box birdied number 9. Ken Graham took the only skin in the C/D game with par on number 8. Chris Nych won the Pro Shop Raffle and Terry Hammond took home the 50/50. Qualifying for team events continues. For the Ladies O’Brien Cup team, Janice Nych is leading the way followed closely by Christine Lafortune, Ilene Lavoie and Beth Pope. After last weekend’s second round of qualifying for the Senior Men’s Intersectional team, Terry Olmstead and Brock

Sine are tied for the lead in the 55-to-59 bracket, Don Lesway and Terry Lampole are first and second in the 60-to-64 bracket and Peter Leroy and George Moore lead the 65+ bracket. Upcoming events include the Glow Ball Open Friday, July 30 and the last qualifying round for the Senior Men’s Intersectionals is Saturday, July 31. The third and final round of qualifying for the Men’s Interclub teams is Aug. 1 and the ladies Mulvihill Cup competition will be hosted by the Arnprior Golf Club Aug. 7.


On the Civic Holiday long weekend, the Ontario Provincial Police will be working to help ensure motorists and outdoor enthusiasts have a safe holiday. Officers will continue to focus on “the big three” causes of injuries on the roads waterways and trails – aggressive driving, drinking and driving and improper use of seatbelts, restraints and flotation devices. Aggressive driving includes the offences of speeding, following to closely and unsafe lane changes. Off-road and waterway aggressive driving is defined as speeding too fast for conditions and operating vessels and all-terrain vehicles without due care and attention for other users. These offences are the leading causes of serious crashes and fatalities on Ontario’s highways, waterways and trails. Drinking and driving offences continue to be the leading criminal cause of death in Ontario. Throughout the province, R.I.D.E. programs will be set up to target drivers who disrespect others by drinking and driving. The proper use of seatbelts and child restraints will also be a focus, as the OPP continues to see preventable injuries and deaths occurring in collisions where occupants are either not wearing seatbelts or are using them improperly. OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino reminds motorists that collisions and injuries are preventable. “Motorists and pleasure craft operators must drive according to conditions and obey the laws,” he said. “It is sad that emergency services personnel continue to need to respond to these tragedies where someone has needlessly lost their life and family members have to deal with that loss just because basic common sense was replaced by reckless behaviour.” OPP Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey, Provincial Commander for Traffic Safety, reminds everyone that incidents aren’t limited to our highways but also occur on our waterways and trails. “During the recent Canada Day extra-Long Weekend, 16 people lost their lives on Ontario Highways, trails and waterways,” he said. “This is why we will be doubling our efforts at enforcement to prevent fatalities this long weekend. “Take time to keep each other safe and set a safe example for others. “Drive carefully, wear your lifejackets and seatbelts and ask others to do the same.”

“We’re very excited about Edge Motorsports coming,” says Grinstead. With monster trucks and daredevil motorcyclists, fair goers will not be disappointed in the event, a feature that Grinstead remembers as a part of the fair in years past. “When I was a kid we used to have this come into Arnprior for the fair,” said Grinstead. “It’s nice to see that kind of action come back.” Another highlight, says Grinstead, is Friday evening’s April Wine show. The Canadian rockers have just been inducted into the Canadian Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and it’s the band’s 40th anniversary year, so the agricultural society couldn’t be happier to see them returning to the Arnprior Fair stage. “Everybody loves April Wine,” says Grinstead. “We’re hoping for a big turnout.” Also new this year, the Bowmanville Zoo will be on hand with exotic animals all weekend. The zoo offers an educational, fun program for fair goers, explains Grinstead. Added to the Sunday schedule is a lawn tractor pull, which promises to be a fun addition to the fair’s community events, said Grinstead. A free pancake breakfast is also being offered on Sunday. “It’ll be great, people can come out for breakfast on Sunday and stay for the tractor pull at 1 p.m.,” The traditional favourites will continue to be a part of the fair, said Grinstead. The Saturday evening demolition derby, exhibit hall, petting zoo, team penning and 4-H shows are all on the schedule. A Sunday afternoon bingo has been added to the events, as well. Arnprior Legion Branch 174 hosts the bingo.

Thrill seekers, you’re in for a treat at this year’s Arnprior Agrictultural Society Fair coming up Aug. 5 to 8. Agricultural Society director Lynn Grinstead says the addition of Edge Motorsports’ extreme thrill show is the perfect way to kick off the 156th annual fair on Thursday evening.

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

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. Supplies the shelter needs: bleach, cat beds, wild bird seed and canned kitten food.

Drop your beer, wine and liquor empties at the shelter 490 Didak Dr., Arnprior, and you’ll be helping all the animals in our care.

Two Algonquin College instructors have lived up to their ‘Over 50 but not over the hill’ motto by cycling from Jasper to Ottawa. Mario Ramsay and Chris Rutishauser passed through Arnprior July 22 in the last leg of the marathon trip, which took 30 days. They said they undertook the ride as not only a personal challenge, but to be role models for students. They said they wanted to encourage them to set goals and continue to learn throughout their lives. Asked on day 29 at their stop in Arnprior if they were tired and regret having taken on the challenge, Ramsay said “nope,� and that he is already looking forward to repeating it next year. “It’s a beautiful sunny day with the wind behind us,� he said. “It feels like we’ve been out for a short ride.� Roads for cycling are worst in Ontario, they said.

Continued from Page 14 They enjoyed their brief sojourn through Arnprior. “I’ve been here a few times,” said Ramsay. “It’s a nice town, and we’ve had students from here over the years, too.” “You are a role model as a teacher,” Rutishauser said. “We did it for ourselves and our students. We wanted to show our students that you should be healthy in body and mind.” Their plans for day one after the trip differed dramatically. Ramsay said after a month on the road, his wife will expect the grass to be cut and other chores done. Rutishauser has about two dozen episodes of Coronation Street to sit down with. The pair didn’t put a lot of emphasis on the age aspect, saying it was highlighted more for fun than anything else. “Kids do think if you look old … We don’t look at it that way. If you can ac-

complish the things you set out to do, age doesn’t matter,” Ramsay said. Ramsay is a culinary chef and Rutishauser a pastry chef at Algonquin College. Both riders spent months preparing physically for the trek, riding their bikes to work, and on weekends to build strength and endurance. They spent time planning the route and deciding on the correct supplies that would allow them to camp in tents as often as possible, and still maintain a pace that would get them home in 30 days. The route evolved as the trip progressed. The total planned distance was 3,747 kilometres. The drive from Ottawa to Jasper, with bike and supplies loaded in a van, allowed them to take a close look at the road surface, and more importantly, the size of the paved shoulder.

Tornadoes, noisy birds, no Tims in U.S. top challenges for riders Continued from Page 15 Once their trip was underway, the route changed frequently, with a side trip through the upper U.S. Traffic and road construction forced detours, and advice from locals met in transit provided insight into better and safer routes. They shared insight and comments throughout their trip on the blog http://ramsaymario.

wordpress.com. For example, on Day 24, the blog notes: “Trans Canada in Ontario is not made for bicycling, sometimes no shoulder or if lucky one to two feet wide pavement. “The worst road so far on this trip, I guess the Minister of Transportation does not use a bicycle.” On Day 6: “Mario was in a cooking mood and he added

fresh mushrooms and spinach to our pasta dinner. It tasted very good On Day 11: “After the stay in Regina at the Luther college residence, we had plenty of energy to burn. I know myself I had plenty to eat at the college cafeteria. I had three portions of everything for lunch and dinner. And felt so good after this.” With an average of nine hours on the road, seven on the bikes,

the two seldom had trouble getting to sleep at night. Often people were curious about the trip, and many times, advice and warnings were offered by strangers, who went out of their way to speak to the riders. Day 9 blog: “We were 25 km from Moose Jaw when a car stopped on the side of the road. “The driver warned us about the tornado watch for Moose

Jaw. He offered us a ride, we thank him and we went back riding. We barely rode above 17 km/hour ... But at that point we increased the speed (30 km/hr) and watched the sky for something to happen.” Other challenges included sometimes the heat, often the wind, enough tubes for Chris, sore butts, noisy birds outside tent at 4 a.m. and no Tim Hortons along the U.S. route

IMMEDIATE OCCUPANCY

Former operators remember pre-dial-up days JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Fifty years after Arnprior’s Bell Telephone operators were replaced by a dial-up service, they are still a close-knit group. Fifteen of the former operators gathered at Ruth Nebergall’s riverfront home in Rhoddy’s Bay July 10, exactly 50 years after the Arnprior area received a direct dialing telephone system for the first time. The women swapped stories

about working in the Bell office on John Street, where Mather’s Real Estate office is today. “You couldn’t find a better group of girls,” said Jean Malloch, who was head operator in 1960. “We had a lot of good times. We were like family.” While the operators knew dialup was coming well in advance, they still missed the camaraderie built up in their ranks when the office closed. They also missing the connec-

tion with the community. Nancy Seguin remembers being the last operator on the final night shift before dial-up took over. Most of the operators have kept in touch, even if some have moved away. They have held 25th and 40th get-togethers, and now a 50th reunion. At the latest reunion, the former operators collected food and money to donate to the Arnprior Food Bank.

Society ‘shares responsibility’ for prisoner rehabilitation

Rehabilitation of criminals and their re-integration into society is an issue in which the public shares some responsibility, Montgomery said, noting governments can’t be expected to provide all the solutions to every problem. If NFU members think farming experience is a good way to achieve that goal, they should come up with a proposal and Gallant will work with them to try to make it happen, he added. However, she agrees with Renfrew County NFU president Dave Mackay that farmers don’t have the resources or training to deal with convicts still serving their time, he said.

THIS WEEK’S FEATURE

July 29 2010 - ARNPRIOR CHRONICLE-GUIDE

Continued from Page 24 The National Farmers Union is lobbying the federal government to reverse its decision to phase out the prison farms. Montgomery explained that giving convicts training on prison farms only makes sense if there are jobs on farms for them after they are released. Unfortunately, those jobs haven’t been materializing, he said. He noted Gallant had pointed out that “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.”

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke federal Liberal candidate Christine Tabbert will host Michael Ignatieff at her family farm near Pembroke on Aug. 9.

Michael Ignatieff will bring his cross-country Liberal Express summer tour to Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Monday, Aug. 9 to take part in a corn roast. The riding’s federal Liberal candidate, Christine Tabbert, will host the event at her family’s farm near Pembroke. The fare will include fresh corn, sausages and buns and hot dogs and pop and a chance to meet and chat with Ignatieff in an informal and fun setting. “This a unique venue for Renfrew County people to interact directly with the leader so he can appreciate us and our issues as well as giving us a chance to better know him and what he stands for,” said Liberal riding president Gail Richardson. “Everyone is most welcome.” “I am looking forward to welcoming Mr. Ignatieff and other Liberal colleagues to my home in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke, and, as part of a farm family, I’m looking forward to showcasing locally grown produce at this event,” said Tabbert. “The Liberal Party of Canada is committed to easing the burden on rural Canadians and improving their quality of life,” she said. “Liberals are working hard this summer to show all Canadians why we’re the only progressive, compassionate and responsible alternative to the Conservatives.” The corn roast will be held at Sunny Hillcrest Farm at 1355 Forest Lea Rd. in Laurentian Valley from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tickets cost $10, with children under 12 free.

Under new provincial regulations effective this Sunday, Aug. 1, all drivers 21 years of age and younger must have a zero blood alcohol level when they get behind the wheel in Ontario. Offenders face an immediate 24-hour or 30-day licence suspensions and up to $500 in fines. Drivers in the Graduated Licensing System will face tougher penalties if they violate the conditions of their licence or if they are convicted of any Highway Traffic Act offences that carry four or more demerit points. Penalties include a 30-day licence suspension for the first instance and a 90-day licence suspension for the second. Further instances can lead to a cancellation

Arnprior

Chronicle-Guide

of the licence and other penalties. Also, effective Aug. 3, eligible drivers convicted of an impaired driving offence for the first time will be able to reduce their licence suspension if they agree to have an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicle, at their own cost. This will help impaired drivers change their behaviour to prevent them from becoming repeat offenders. The changes are part of the Road Safety Act 2009 and 2007’s Safer Roads for a Safer Ontario Act. Statistics indicate the peak ages of drinking-and-driving collisions are 19, 20 and 21. In Ontario, 235 drivers age 21 and under were killed in drinking-and-driving collisions in the latest 10-year period.

The mysterious case of the vanishing death trap Much of our local animal life is difficult to see. Many creatures bear patterns that blend so perfectly into the background we do not see them until they move. Such is the case of female Ruffed Grouse on their nests. Others are so tiny only the trained eye can detect them. Soil animals such as Springtails are case in point. Then there are animals whose presence is best detected by the structures they build. Likely you have seen many more beaver lodges than you have their makers. Currently, certain structures are revealing the presence of much smaller animals. Unlike beaver lodges, however, these are not visible during the day and are usually only seen just as the sun begins to rise. While they exist in almost every habitat, open meadows or marshes offer the best views of them. Look toward the rising sun and there they will be. Hundreds, even thousands, will adorn the grasses, flowers, and bushes as far as your eye can see. Yet come back after a few hours and they will have vanished. The structures are spider webs and their abundance in late summer is mindboggling. These death traps are visible at dawn

because then they are covered in dew. Spider webs are made of silk (most webs contain several types), which must remain elastic in order to do its job. For that reason, silk absorbs moisture. When you stretch an old, dehydrated elastic band you soon learn the consequences of drying out. This absorptive property makes webs particularly attractive to dew. However, under the sun’s caress, the drops eventually evaporate, rendering the lethal traps invisible to work their magic. Dew allows us to not only to see webs but also admire their complexity and diversity. Funnel Weaver and Sheet Web spider webs lay parallel to the ground. The spectacular circular webs of OrbWeaver Spiders hang perpendicular to the ground. But not all webs vanish by late morning. Those of the Black and Yellow Argiope contain a conspicuous zigzag pattern in the centre, on which rests the large and colourful maker. The band, known as a stabilimentum, seems to have a two-fold function. Birds see it and avoid flying through it. But insects are attracted to it. Apparently the stabilimentum contains ultraviolet patterns similar to those in flowers that direct insects to nectar. The spider’s conspicuous body has

been found to contain these same properties! Right now you might find a second, much smaller Argiope sitting on the outer part of the web. This is the male. In many spiders, males are tiny in comparison to the females. This is a survival tactic for the females are programmed to

attack all that contact their webs. By being small, males face a lesser chance of becoming a meal for a femme fatale. Apparently for some male animals, bigger is not better! The Nature Number is 613-387-2503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way

Dealing with a sick, injured or orphaned wild animal Many well-intentioned people needlessly remove juvenile animals from a healthy, natural life in the wild, says the Ministry of Natural Resources. They think the animal is sick, injured or orphaned when that is often not the case. Where an animal is in need of help, it requires specialized care to recover and return to the wild, says the MNR in a news release. “You cannot keep wildlife in captivity without approval from the MNR. However, a person may possess a wild animal for up to 24 hours to transport it to a wildlife custodian or a veterinarian. It is normal for some species to leave their offspring temporarily alone, especially during the day. For example, deer and cottontail rabbits spend much of the day away from their wellcamouflaged offspring to minimize the chance of predators finding them. To determine if young wildlife is truly orphaned:

• check the animal periodically for 24 to 48 hours to see if it is still around, but keep your distance; • Keep cats and dogs away from the area where the young animal is; the adult will not return if it is noisy or if predators or people are close by. Signs of injury or illness: • blood, wounds or swelling on the body; • body covered in fleas; • unusual or uneven loss of fur or feathers; • difficult or raspy breathing or sneezing; • dangling leg or wing; • closed eyes; head tucked under wing. Care necessary to help the animal: • contact a wildlife custodian who can help you assess the situation and will provide advice on what action to take; • if specialized and immediate care is necessary to help the animal, take it to a wildlife custodian or a veterinarian within 24 hours of capture; • if you must handle the animal, follow the instructions provided by

the wildlife custodian on how to minimize risk of injury to yourself and to the animal. For information, call the public health units at 1-866-532-3161 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday to Friday or the Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre at 1-866-673-4781.
