Seat shuffle Black, Silye join race for mayor, Gibeau opts for councillor contest DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

CANDIDATES FORUMS Arnprior residents will have two chances to see their council candidates in action. The Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce (GACC) has decided to break its candidates forum into two. The nine councillor candidates will be taking questions Wednesday, Sept. 22 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Arnprior District High School. The five mayor and four reeve candidates will be on the hot seat at the Nick Smith Centre Sept. 29 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The GACC is also intending to hold a forum for McNab-Braeside candidates in early October.

Linda Normandeau shows off petitions supporting her efforts to retain the gazebo in the background that she erected in front of her rental home across from Arnprior Town Hall. Although it encroaches on the sidewalk, it appears she will be allowed by the County to keep the gazebo in place at least until winter. For more, see Page 3.

Election showdown set in McNab-Braeside

Deputy Mayor Elmer Raycroft is challenging incumbent Mary Campbell for the mayor’s chair in McNab-Braeside. Raycroft filed his nomination papers Sept. 9, a day before the deadline. Sitting councillor Andy Dunlop became the fifth candidate

in the councillor race the same day. However, when it became apparent there would be only one candidate for deputy mayor, Christine Blimkie (Sauve), Dunlop switched his nomination to that position just before the 2 p.m. deadline Friday. The final and fifth candidate

to file for councillor was Robert Campbell. He joins Brad McIlquham, Aldene Styles, Marilyn Tilley and Moira Hutchison in the race for three spots on council. Sitting councillor Jim McGregor is not running again. For more election news, see pages 4 to 7.

E-vote this time Both Arnprior and McNabBraeside have adopted electronic voting for this year’s municipal election. Anyone with concerns about voting by phone or Internet should contact their municipal office. For more, see Page 7.

TERRY’S TEAM Among those urging the public to participate in Arnprior’s Terry Fox Run this Sunday, Sept. 19 are cancer survivors and Terry’s Team members Terry Jordan, above, and Eileen Currie. 26, 27

The jockeying for positions in the final hours before the candidate nomination forms were due last Friday has at least two Arnprior mayoral candidates saying voters want different leaders, not simply the same leaders in different seats. In a surprising turn of events, Mayor Terry Gibeau opted not to run for mayor but threw his name in the hat for councillor. Former Reform MP and CFL star Jim Silye dropped out of the councillor race to put his name forward for mayor. Coun. Nancy Black did the same. Coun. Jack Lammert rounded out Friday’s flurry of town hall activity by declaring that he intends to run for a councillor position again. Gibeau would not grant the Chronicle-Guide an interview before deadline to offer reasoning for not reapplying for the mayor’s job, but some have speculated that when David Reid appeared in an exclusive interview in last week’s issue to announce his bid for the top job, Gibeau may have realized his candidacy was a lost cause.

Controversial structure likely to stay up until winter DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Evidently Linda Normandeau hasn’t heard the truism that states – you can’t beat town hall. “I don’t think I’m doing anything wrong,” she said last Friday, with supporters behind her. “I’m just trying to make a yard for my little grandkids. I’m not trying to make trouble.” Normandeau and her gazebo are at the centre of a long, often strange battle with various levels of government that dates back to May. As a Mother’s Day present to pen in her two grandchildren, Normandeau put up a gazebo next to the place she rents across the street from Arnprior town hall. She was under the impression the property belonged to her landlord. It belongs to government, and the municipal bylaw officer told her in July it was attracting people who got drunk and started fights. She insisted the drunken fighters were across the road at the corner of Elgin and Madawaska streets. She said no one has been charged with a bylaw offence on her property. She then pleaded her case before council, which delayed a decision until it could be determined who owns the property. Councillors Tom Peckett and Jack Lammert were clearly annoyed the issue was brought before them in the first place, insisting bylaws apply to everyone evenly. It turned out the property belongs to Renfrew County. Arnprior staff suggested that level of government take over the file. The county sent a letter to Normandeau’s landlord telling him the gazebo must come down. Normandeau learned the county wanted the gazebo removed for safety reasons,

because it was blocking the view of drivers and nearby residents. Last week she and a band of supporters staged a protest onsite, complete with signs encouraging supporters to honk and a petition with over 50 signatures. She vowed to keep the gazebo up until this winter’s snowfall. Meanwhile, election candidates have pointed to the issue as an example of a council that can’t make simple decisions. The majority believed the gazebo was on public property illegally and should simply be taken down. Coun. Eric Burton wanted council to write Normandeau a letter explaining its position. He couldn’t get a seconder, which he described as a disrespectful gesture to a person who took the time to speak before them. Normandeau said she even paid a visit to Mayor Terry Gibeau to discuss the issue after he refused to accept her phone call. She was not impressed with his response. He complained her story was all over the newspapers, she said, “and then he told me he was busy drinking a glass of water.” Gibeau declined comment on the issue. Then, on Friday, Normandeau said a county staffer told her the only problem they have with her fence is that it is blocking people’s view and causing a safety hazard. “I said fine. I have my gazebo up to protect the safety of my grandkids. If you want me to take down the fence for safety reasons I have no problem with that. But I’m keeping my gazebo up,” she said. “He told me his only beef is with the fence.” She maintains the issue all along was a matter of both principle and practicality for her. And that it never should have gone as far as it did. “It was total nonsense,” she said.

EXPLANATORY NOTE The Council of the Corporation of the Town of Arnprior passed Comprehensive Zoning By-law 4990-01, which applies to the entire Town of Arnprior, on October 29, 2001.

The current zoning of the subject lands is Mixed Use Commercial – Exception Five (MUC-E5) and Mixed Use Commercial – Exception Six (MUC-E6). The purpose of the amendment is to rezone the lands to Mixed Use Commercial – Exception One (MUC-E1) to restrict the use of the site for a cartage express or truck terminal which is currently a special permitted use, and to permit all the Mixed Use Commercial uses save and except residential uses, a church, funeral home or hotel. The purpose and effect of the amendment is to permit the standard MUC uses on the site save and except those prohibited due to the site’s proximity to the rail line.

The subject lands are described as part of Lots 17 and 53, Plan 19, municipally known as 158 McGonigal Street West, as shown on the attached key plan. Dated at the Town of Arnprior this 16th day of September, 2010. Key Plan: N ST

Keep the pressure on when it comes to the four-laning of Highway 17. That’s what municipalities and other stakeholders should do, Renfrew County’s operations committee agreed Monday. The committee, meeting in McNabBraeside, supported a motion to relay to the provincial government a collective expression of support for the project. “We can’t take our foot off the gas ... we have to continue to press,” public works director Dave Darch told the committee. “We can’t quit now,” agreed committee chairman Zig Mintha, adding new provincial Infrastructure Minister Bob Chiarelli should be contacted for support “as he knows this area.” He has offered to meet with County officials, “so we should take him up on it,” Darch said. “This is great ... 417 melds a lot of things together for us,” said Greater Madawaska Reeve Peter Emon. “We need to present a package to the province.” He said that the county should remind the province the lack of transit in this

area makes the highway project even more important. Darch said the extending of Highway 417 up the Valley is one of the most critical projects for the area because of its spin-off benefits in the tourism and economic development areas. While area ministry officials continue to express interest in the project, continuation of the four-laning past Arnprior is not in the ministry’s five-year plan, he noted. “That’s a concern.” Darch said the county needs to impress on the government that the project is important to urban dwellers too. Ottawa residents want to be able to drive up the Valley and visit places such as Alqonquin Park, he said. He suggested municipalities should ask area chambers of commerce, CFB Petawawa and AECL to add their voices in support of the inclusion of the continued extension of the four-lane highway in the MTO’s five-year plan. Darch said it is particularly important to have the four lanes as far as Renfrew, as that is where traffic funnels off on highways 60, 132 and 41, as well as being close to the link with Quebec’s road network.

Fireworks illuminates communication problem DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Saturday evening’s fireworks display came as a surprise to many residents, and is being called the latest example of poor communication from town hall. In recent months, town council and staff have come under fire for not letting people know about problems, including: • erratic charges on water bills; • a delegate to council who didn’t hear a response regarding her gazebo; • local contractors claiming they aren’t given a reasonable chance to win bids; • developers complaining proposals take too long to receive approval; • and the latest – fireworks lasting some 25 minutes on Saturday, Sept. 11.

FIreworks delight some and upset others, but most were likely surprised to see them appear in Arnprior Sept. 11. said some residents thought “explosions” were occurring. Then lights flashed in the night sky. She said many elderly people in town with health conditions may have suffered. Small children also reported being scared. The display lasted at least 25 minutes, and was held at the is-

land near Madawaska bridge, the same location as the Canada Day fireworks. All proper rules were followed by a wedding group, which shot the fireworks, said OPP Staff Sgt. Mike Forester. “It was a wedding,” Forester said. “Everything went smooth(ly) and safe(ly) and all the

regulations were followed.” Fire Chief John Okum said it was a private function and nothing to do with the town. The application passed by his desk, and it occurred to him that perhaps council should have been notified and public notices issued. However, the idea was abandoned. He didn’t say who at town hall decided to let it pass. “The groom did it as a surprise and asked the town to keep it confidential,” Okum said. He added that maybe the current bylaw should be tweaked to say that if the fireworks are large, the public should be notified. “Maybe I’ll make that recommendation to council,” Okum said. Coun. Eric Burton, who is running for reeve, said the problem isn’t with the

SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATES

people who held the wedding. It is with town officials who didn’t think to notify the public. “I was surprised to see them. Maybe they should have been announced in the newspapers,” he said. “It’s the same thing with the gazebo. (See story on page 3.) We should have shown her (owner) the respect of at least a response in the form of a letter.” Mayoral candidate Jim Silye has taken note of the communication breakdowns, and vows that if elected he will dramatically improve the situation. “Media relations at town hall have got to change, not this straight-arm approach,” Silye said. “At the end of the day, the public has a right to know. The leadership I provide will make that happen. There will be better communication.”

Arnprior Ontario Provincial Police officers laid several impaired driving charges in early September. On Sept. 4 at about 3:20 a.m., OPP Constable Brent Stevens and Sgt. Paul Dowdall stopped a vehicle being driven erratically on William Street in Arnprior. As a result of the investigation, a 41-year-old Arnprior man was charged with impaired driving, exceeding 80 milligrams of blood alcohol concentration and possession of schedule II drugs. He is scheduled to attend criminal court Oct. 27. On Aug. 30, Const. Denys Baranovskiy stopped a vehicle on Division Street in Arnprior for traffic violations. Further investigation resulted in the driver being arrested for impaired driving. A male passenger in the vehicle fled

SAFETY REMINDER The OPP continues to remind motorists to be aware there are more students on roadways and crosswalks and getting on and off buses now that school is back. It is an offence to pass a school bus that has its red flashing lights activated.

Letter’s criticism unfair, says candidate Arnprior mayoralty candidate Doug Smith says a letter in last week’s Arnprior Chronicle-Guide criticizing him for not helping to provide power for the White Pine Festival was unfair and inappropriate. Smith said he had to close up his store when his wife, Sharon, was afflicted with a severe case of dizziness (vertigo) and went to the Arnprior hospital’s emergency department on the Saturday of the festival, where she was seen by the doctor on call.

After she received “excellent care” and a prescription that helped her cope, the couple spent an hour taking in the fair, before she went to bed for the remainder of the day, he said. “Even with her vertigo, my wife insists on helping me every day ... a true testament to her drive and determination,” said Smith. “Unfortunately Art (Smith, the letter-writer), my wife’s health is far more important than your electrical needs. “We did what we could

in attending one hour of your event.”

Continued from front “Whether he was afraid to run against me or he knows he would have lost, that’s speculation on the part of people,” Reid said. “I was a bit disappointed he didn’t (declare for mayor). I would have enjoyed running against him.” Reid said his campaign strategy won’t change. He will still champion lower taxes, “progressive and thoughtful” developments, and revitalizing the downtown core and waterfront. He maintains that new ideas are badly needed, as are new faces. Without naming any specific incumbents, Reid said Arnprior can’t have the next few years the same as the last few. “They are aligning themselves to try and maintain the status quo,” Reid said. “People are going to look at the candidates who are for change, not more of the same.” Mayoral candidate Doug Smith offered a similar assessment. “It’s quite interesting how the current Arnprior council (members) have shuffled themselves for this year’s municipal election,” he said. “The taxpayers of Arnprior do not want a shuffled deck of cards. The taxpayers want a brand new deck.” Silye called Gibeau a friend and said that he doesn’t run against his friends. But when incumbency was taken out of the mayoral race equation, the veteran politician knew it was time to jump into the race for the town’s top job.

“I like the guy, and now that he’s not here (running for mayor), I feel I’m qualified for the job,” he said. “I’m offering leadership that will move Arnprior forward. We have to have a council and reeve and mayor on the same page.” However, should the outspoken Gibeau win a council seat, could he take direction from a new mayor – maybe Silye – after having held the job himself ? “I think having Terry there is an advantage. He has to get himself elected first,” Silye said, citing Gibeau’s experience on files such as the SmartCentres retail development proposal. “Mayors don’t take direction. I listen to the people.” Black is proud to run on the current council’s record, saying she switched from running for councillor again to running for mayor because of her record. “I’m pretty proud of the work I’ve accomplished over the years. And I think we need somebody who knows what can be done, and what has been done,” Black said, adding she is the lone mayoral candidate with experience in municipal politics. “I believe we are heading in the right direction. We’ve built a wonderful foundation. Now we need the leadership and experience to improve it.” Black said if elected mayor and Gibeau is elected councillor, they “won’t agree all the time,” but still “share the same goal, to grow Arnprior.”

Candidate: more funds from county derek.dunn@metroland.com

Coun. Tom Peckett is proud to run on a platform that includes the current council’s accomplishments in all areas except one: Arnprior’s relationship with the County of Renfrew. That’s why he has opted to run for reeve this time. “I don’t think we’ve been getting the answers we need from the county,” he said. “We need to gain respect we used to have from the county. I know some of the people there and I can do the job.” The reeve represents town interests at county council, the level of government responsible for upgrading roads such as Division, Elgin, Madawaska and Daniel, along with social housing and other files. He said Arnprior taxpayers contribute some $3 million to the county every year, but don’t get nearly that much in return. Although he isn’t sure how much is returned, he would be satisfied with between 40 and 50 per cent. He conceded that blaming another level of government for local problems is common in politics, but

TOM PECKETT it should be done with respect, compromise and cooperation. “You can’t just bang your shoe on the table and throw darts (at other levels),” Peckett said. “You have to go in with an open mind.” Critics question Peckett’s commitment to representing Arnprior’s interests at the county level because he lives outside town, qualifying for the race only because he rents property in the municipality. Peckett maintains that he pays taxes to the town and that he doesn’t like drawing lines between

Arnprior, McNab-Braeside, Ottawa and Mississippi Mills. “I hate separating and drawing lines. We are all one community,” he said. “I work diligently for people in Arnprior, and I work hard for them. I think people should look at the job I’m doing as opposed to where I live.” He added that Arnprior once had a mayor who didn’t live in town. Peckett pitches himself as a pro-business candidate, as opposed to fellow contender Eric Burton who was against the lowwage jobs that would have come as a result of the proposed retail power centre near Highway 417. “How can you say you are pro-business and development and vote totally against it?” Peckett said. Peckett was forced to declare pecuniary interest on all things related to the topic because at the time he owned Sears in the mall. He added that the proposed development will return when the economy picks up again, and that will be the time to talk seriously about it. See ‘PECKETT’ Page 6

A CHANCE FOR CHANGE

Here we are in the middle of an important election in which the electors have the opportunity to have a major impact. The most heard phrase is; that the Town of Arnprior needs major changes, both at the leadership level and the council level, where most of the proposals are presented from. An election is more than just an exercise. Its an opportunity for the public to make their voices heard and keep those who step forward and be counted on, to do exactly what was promised. A mayor is expected to lead a new council with the highest degree of integrity and direction as would a general in an army. The councilors that the public elect should show a passion for what they see has gone wrong over the years, and come forwards with solutions and proposals on how to improve the successes that bring prosperity to our community. Before you cast your vote; I ask you to review what each 414627

candidate for Mayor, Councilor and Reeve are proposing to bring to the table that will benefit the greatest number of residents over the next 4 years. Only then will you be able to elect an efficient team to Arnprior’s new council. I pledge my dedication to the best interests of Arnprior residents, as I have in the past with leadership and enthusiasm to improve our community. I will continue such enthusiasm and passion with your help in electing me as one of your councilors. I ask for your vote on October 18th thru October 25th, 2010, with thanks. Douglas C. Munro Doug Munro is an official candidate for election to Arnprior municipal council.

Mayor’s race attracts five, but not the incumbent

‘Improve co-operation, attract growth’ JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

After serving 27 years on the Renfrew County public school board and McNabBraeside council, Elmer Raycroft wants to finish his career in local politics as mayor of the township. “I think most people want to see some change (on council), he said. “I’d like to see little stronger leadership and council working together better.” He said he is confident he could work well with any of the candidates running for council. Raycroft, who was born and raised in McNab-Braeside, served on the school board for 17 years, including two as chairman and two as vice-chairman, before being elected a township councillor for six years. He has been deputy mayor for the last term, chairing the planning and fire committees, and is now challenging incumbent Mary Campbell for the top job. The school board and council experience, along with his time spent in the car business and on his acreage in the township raising four children, provides the background to allow him to “understand the issues, and deal with them in a fair and timely manner,” he said. He pledged to represent all ratepayers fairly, and not favour any specific groups. “I’m not anti-anyone. I’ll work with any ratepayer any time,” he said. “But I don’t represent just one group ... I represent the entire township.”

ELMER RAYCROFT For instance, when it comes to the Braeside quarry asphalt plant proposal, council has to gather the facts and make a decision after consultation and open and balanced discussions with all parties, he said. The township has done due diligence by arranging peer reviews of the applicant’s studies, he added. He noted that while the environment must be protected, the township also has to respect property rights. Raycroft said continuing with improvements at the landfill and reinstatement of the full roads budget after this year’s cuts should be priorities for the next council. “We must replace and maintain our equipment for the safety of our community.” He said he will continue to lobby for a traffic light or another solution to improve safety at the Calabogie RoadHighway 17 intersection. Raycroft said he is un-

abashedly “pro-development” and feels the township should take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime growth opportunities provided by the four-laning of Highway 17. “Council needs to be ready ... we need to be proactive,” he said, suggesting the maximum number of severances allowed on a property be upped from three to four. Subdivisions such as Madison Heights and Mansfield Meadows have been a big boost to the township, he added. “We need to continue to make developments like that feel welcome. “I believe we can have both development and preservation of our rural identity,” he said. “We have plenty of waste land where we can develop (residential projects).” Encouraging growth to increase the tax base is necessary to keep taxes in line, he said, noting the township is facing major cost increases in everything from fuel to fire trucks. Raycroft said working closely with the Renfrew County and neighbours, particularly Arnprior, can help accommodate growth and keep costs down. The township is benefitting from joint ventures with the town and “I hope the new councils will be open to them being expanded,” he said, citing recycling and septage as areas that can benefit from working co-operatively. He suggested the township needs to improve its relations with County council, maintaining the township has “lost much of its

Peckett: Infrastructure projects sign of progress pectations were too high. Although most developers in town are frustrated at the lengthy amount of time it takes to do business with the municipality, Peckett isn’t biting. “Our current public works director (Janet Collins) is doing a desirable job.” When it comes to the issue of water billing problems, Peckett didn’t shy away from calling it a “definite problem” that will be solved. But he wouldn’t want it to be a deciding factor for voters. “If you’re not being criticized you’re not doing much,” he said. “You have to look at the overall record and knowledge, that’s why I think I’m the best person.” His one frustration about life in politics? The slow wheels of government. “You always want to see things done as soon as possible,” he said. “It takes time to get a certain amount done. We have achieved a lot and there’s a lot still out there to do.” However, he added that he will “fight on behalf of any and all developers,” and that when Ted Strike – a council candidate – was town engineer for 24 years, the town “did well.”

impact” in that arena. “With my experience on County boards, I will strive to work co-operatively with County council to ensure that we receive fair and proper distribution of the funds,” he said. Council also needs to “reconnect” with provincial ministries, so they will not shy away from coming to the table to discuss matters of common interest. That will allow both sides to come to a better understanding of each other’s roles, Raycroft said. Council has a role in ensuring there is proper health care available for its residents, he said, noting he has served for several years on the local doctor recruitment committee. He pledged to work toward improve nursing and home care services in the township. Raycroft said council members not only need to work more co-operatively with each other, they must continue to maintain harmony with the township’s “dedicated staff ” and “outstanding” fire department. “We have to ensure they are well-equipped to do their jobs ... and keep morale high,” he said. He said he is running a positive campaign. “I want people to know what I’m for, not what I’m against. I don’t want to criticize anyone,” he said. “I feel I’ve represented the ratepayers for 27 years in a honest and fair manner,” he said. “As mayor I would continue to serve with experience, integrity and commitment.”

M-B candidate aims to build healthy, friendly communities shaaima@msn.com

McNab Township councillor candidate Moira Hutchison says her A-type personality and hardworking nature are a great fit for the role. Hutchison, who has lived in Burnstown for three years now, was born in Toronto and lived in many places, including a number of her childhood years in Scotland, which left her with a brogue that is appreciated in a township where Scottish roots run deep. The owner of Hutchison Healing Touch, she moved from Calgary, where she worked in the corporate world as an office manager and financial controller. Her career took a very different turn after she became ill in 1998 with adult mono that never really went away, eventually leaving her suffering from fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue. Doctors attempted to help, offering different medications that never did the trick. The pills and support groups offered by physicians didn’t help. Her research into nontraditional practices and holistic health opened up a whole new world. “It really struck a chord,” says Hutchison, who learned that not living your purpose and following your dreams can affect your physical health. She trained first in reflexology and has gone on to learn a number of practices, including massage

MOIRA HUTCHISON therapy, hypnotherapy and CranioSacral therapy. Hutchison worked in both finances and healing for awhile, until the pace got to be too much. So, leaving behind a booming practice in Calgary, she and husband James headed to Ontario and settled in Burnstown, near some of his family members. “We moved here for a change of pace,” says Hutchison. She’s adjusted her schedule to a manageable pace, working two days in Ottawa and two at her Burnstown home. Her stint as chair of the McNab-Braeside Business Association whet her appetite for politics, says Hutchison. “I’ve got a real love of the corporate part of helping people run their business better and understanding their own commerce.” Her work with the business association included

creating a website listing the township’s businesses and production of a brochure with the same information. She has also been involved with the Calabogie and Area Business Association and says her experience with the association, joined with her own business knowledge, gives her a unique perspective on some of the challenges rural businesses face. Hutchison says she’s not the type of person to sit around and complain when there’s a problem. “If I see something that needs to be done I will go and do it,” she says. Having lived all over, Hutchison says she loves Burnstown and McNabBraeside Township. “Of all the moves I’ve made I’d have to say I felt accepted the quickest here. I actually got really connected with the people here in Burnstown. “I’ve got a real desire to put places like this on the map,” she says. Should she be successful in her council bid, Hutchison says health care and wellness will continue to be a big factor in her outlook. Health awareness and alternatives, as well as community events that promote wellness, are key, she says. As far as campaigning, since she’s new to the game, she’s starting from scratch. Making signs and pamphlets and networking with possible constituents are among the tasks at hand.

If you have any concerns about the new municipal electronic voting system in McNab-Braeside, call the township office. That’s the advice given township voters when a couple of councillors told council Sept. 7 that some residents, mainly seniors, are feeling intimidated by the new system. Township CAO Noreen Mellema assured council voting by phone or Internet will be easy and confidential under the new system. Anyone with any qualms should call the township’s voter help line or visit the office and they can be walked through the process, she noted. People can also take advantage of Internet and telephone demonstrations on the township’s website, mcnabbraeside. com, she said. The discussion came during council’s approval of an agreement allowing Intelivote to use the township’s

municipal voter information. Coun. Andy Dunlop said he is afraid some seniors won’t vote because they don’t trust the new system. “It’s scary for some of them,” agreed Coun. Jim McGregor. Deputy Mayor Elmer Raycroft said some voters have expressed concern about confidentiality. “It’s a big change ... there is skepticism,” he said. “I hope it doesn’t backfire and people stay at home (and not vote).” The system has been used in Great Britain and other Canadian provinces and there hasn’t been problems, noted Mayor Mary Campbell. Mellema, who reminded councillors they had unanimously approved the new voting system, reported all registered voters will receive a voter package in early October with their pin number password. The e-voting will begin Oct. 18 and extend to the official election day, Oct. 25. Help centres will be set up on Oct. 18, 23 and 25 to assist people with voting.

Surprise? Maybe not

Public should help protect the river

M

aybe it shouldn’t have been such a surprise after all. In a year-end interview with the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide back in January, Mayor Terry Gibeau broadly hinted that he was looking for a new challenge. Given his strong interest in regional issues and many contacts in the County, it was thought he might run for reeve, or even provincial or federal office. Backing away from time-consuming duties of mayor enables him to better address some of those issues obviously dear to his heart. His move is also further proof the mayor’s job has changed a great deal, even in the last decade. Municipal government is much more complicated, and stressful, than it used to be when pothole politics was the order of the day. Mayoralty candidates be forewarned. It’s not an easy job.

they be trusted behind closed doors after being elected?

To the editor: I read with interest your article ‘Bring Ottawa Summit to Arnprior’ in the Sept. 9 issue of the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide. I attended that conference as a volunteer. “High levels of e-coli, possibly from agricultural runoff ” is a questionable statement. I don’t know of any evidence to support that contention. The basic problem is thought to be the existence of combined sewer pipes in the old section of the town, and the overflow of the sewage treatment facility when periodic high volumes of surface water enters the system. The Ottawa Riverkeeper organized the conference. The proposal to have the town of Arnprior host the 2011 Summit has merit, but with one caveat. The negative perception of Arnprior’s current project to direct sewage treatment overflow into the centre of Chats Lake must be corrected. Despite the Ministry of the Environment sanction, this project gives a negative image of Arnprior and is contrary to the objectives of the Ottawa Riverkeeper organization. The Ottawa River Summit provided a photo-op for Ottawa area politicians, but the real benefit was to draw attention to the need to maintain and enhance our clean fresh water resources. Citizens of the Chats Lake region of the Ottawa River have a vested interest in seeing our clean water maintained for recreational purposes, and as a fish habitat. Volunteers can do a lot to make the local waterway clean and safe. I know of one concerned citizen of McNab-Braeside township who pulls dangerous deadheads from the water, but without help from the municipality, there’s no place to take those partially submerged logs. Every time that I read of a drowning of a nonswimmer, it reminds me of the importance for all children to be given the opportunity to learn to swim. We all can’t afford a swimming pool in our back yards, so the option is to have municipalities take the initiative. Your paper reported in January of this year, that the McNab-Braeside council rejected a proposal to provide a public swimming pool at Braeside. The delegation was told to use the Braeside Beach. The township has provided funds for a very attractive swimming facility on the Madawaska River at Burnstown, but no funds have been found to provide the Braeside beach with suitable water quality and recreational facilities. Consistent with user-pay philosophy, those who value the river should be prepared to help to maintain and improve the quality of our waterway. Our taxpayers can’t afford to do it all, and must depend on those concerned citizens to do their part in a monetary sense or as volunteers.

Thanks for making Arnprior water bills ridiculous the festival a success To the editor: The first annual White Pine Festival has come and gone. Based on feedback from many in attendance, we believe it was a great success. Lessons have been learned from both positive and negative feedback. Overall, the comments certainly encourage us for year two to be bigger and better. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the citizens of Arnprior and surrounding communities for their support by coming out and enjoying the weekend. We hope to see you next year. On behalf of the Arnprior Festival Committee, a huge thank you to every individual, business, and service organization involved with making this first year a success.

LETTER

Independent worth considering

In defence of MP Cheryl Gallant

To the editor:

foray back into federal politics. Minority governments require as many votes as they can muster in order to pass legislation, resulting in huge power for an independent MP who could make or break any bill. Upon visiting Mr. Clouthier’s website, I was able to find a candidate that was actually talking about crucial issues that were essentially undermining our prosperity. Following an exchange of e-mails between Mr. Clouthier and myself, he invited me to come along on his campaign, and invitation I happily accepted. I look forward to contributing to his campaign and helping to bring real leadership back to this riding. Hopefully, the people will agree and vote to bring vital change to Ottawa and put the Valley back on the map.

To the editor: Well folks, for three consecutive terms now Renfrew County has had the good fortune to have Cheryl Gallant as our federal member of parliament. In fact, Cheryl has been voted in, time after time, by an increasing majority of voters, and that includes a substantial number of former Liberals, who have come to realize she is not some blathering, pork-barrel politician who will promise them anything, but give them nothing once elected, and to all of those former Liberals I doff my hat. Nevertheless, in spite of her record of integrity and service, there are still a number of letter-writing diehard Liberals out there ready to assail her at every turn. Voters know who these people are, and in almost every case they are also known (especially in their own communities) these naysayers are negative, opinionated loudmouths, with long-standing reputations for being the kind of individuals others take great pains to avoid. For example, these critics routinely accuse Cheryl of things for which she is not guilty and for which they can offer no proof – but that’s the point you see – because this technique allows these bottom feeders to publicly denigrate her without ever having to confront her face to face. Their only intent is to pose questions, make accusations and create doubt.

My name is Adam Lesco and I am a recent graduate of Nipissing University’s Political Science Department. Upon returning home to Laurentian Valley, I was disappointed to observe the political mess in our riding of RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke. In order to gain experience in my field and to contribute to the improvement of my home riding, I sought out the potential federal candidates hoping to find one I could identify with. During my analyses of the candidates, as well as our current MP, these are my conclusions: Christine Tabbert, the federal Liberal party candidate appears to be nothing more than a “parachute candidate� who was brought in by the Liberal party as a prospective challenger to MP Cheryl Gallant. However, while touting herself as a local farm girl, she has chosen to spend her entire adult life in Toronto showing no real commitment to her constituency. Our MP Mrs. Cheryl Gallant, currently residing silently on the backbenches, went to Ottawa with the best intentions of providing the Valley with much needed leadership. She has unfortunately stumbled due to countless political gaffes and has lost her credibility within the Conservative ranks. Having campaigned on promises of scrap-

ping Bill C-61 (gun registry) and not raising taxes, she appeared to resonate well with the rural voters in our constituency. The result? A ridiculous tax increase in the form of the HST, a bill she supported on the floor and not a single change to Bill C-68. Our MP has also vigorously trumpeted her support for our troops at her political convenience. Well, tell us Cheryl, where is your voice within your government when it plans to make cuts to the Department of Veteran’s Affairs? Meanwhile, the ombudsman for Veteran’s Affairs, Pat Stogran, has raised legitimate concerns about the government’s bloated bureaucracy failing to take proper care of our heroes. Ultimately, there is a disturbing trend occurring in Canadian politics. Federal MPs are no longer able to vote in reflection of the desires of the people who elected them. They are whipped to vote a certain way based on their party’s attempts at political opportunism. This has fundamentally undermined the democratic political process. Having studied minority government thoroughly, I came to realize that some of the most democratic and some of the most powerful people in the House of Commons are independent MPs. This is what intrigued to explore Hector Clouthier’s

Drivers urged to cast votes in worst-roads campaign STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroalnd.com

Look for road bumps and more, as the Canadian Automobile Association’s annual worst-roads campaign heads down the home stretch. Korey Kennedy, manager of public and government affairs for CAA North & East Ontario, continues his media blitz while encouraging drivers, cyclists and pedestrians to cast their ballots before the polls close Sept. 30. The campaign, now in its eighth year, is all about bringing attention to bad roads, highways and bridges, with the hope this invites more financial support from the federal and provincial government. To date, the CAA says the campaign has helped generate $400 million for infrastructure projects in Ontario and $1.9 billion from the federal governments. Last year a record number of nearly 10,000 ballots were cast in the campaign. For the second straight year, voters said Steeles Avenue in Toronto was the province’s worst road. But this is not just a chance to identify neglected roads in larger metropolitan areas, stresses Kennedy. He notes previous campaigns have ended with the top20 roads list containing roads from the rural communities of Kapuskasing and Moosonee in northern Ontario. It’s In Your Hands is the continuing

theme of the campaign, whose major goal is to seek improvements to crumbling and decaying infrastructure. It’s noteworthy, says Kennedy, that more than 90 per cent of roads making the top20 list have been, or are in the midst of being, repaired. “Motorists and other roadusers can do their part by speaking up about this extremely important issue.” The definition of worst road can vary, but he says it’s up to voters to bring attention to a road problem, whether it’s a crack-riddled side road, a major road laced with potholes or a crumbling bridge. This area’s top-ranked worst road was seventh-place Carling Avenue of Ottawa. Roads in the region receiving infrastructure improvements in recent years have included such top-20, worst-road finishers as the City of Ottawa’s Limebank Road and Carling Avenue. “That’s the joy of the campaign,” said Kennedy. “Each and every year the results change, and they change with the wants and needs of the electorate.” It’s expected Highway 17, which runs through Renfrew County, will continue to receive some votes, as municipalities continue to lobby for extension of the fourlane Highway 417 well beyond Arnprior. One can vote online at www.caaneo. on.ca or by visiting one of Ottawa’s four CAA travel stores, including the one in Kanata. The campaign began Aug. 12 and continues through to Thursday, Sept. 30.

More than once this summer someone has left furniture and other large items outside The Opportunity Shop on John Street. Volunteers Sandra Stemp and Elaine Lowe are convinced the perpetrators don’t honestly believe items in such a sorry state would qualify for re-sale at the store, which sees profits returned to Arnprior’s hospital.

Because junk ends up at the shop near the end of the month, volunteers suspect it could be a landlord in the area who doesn’t want to pay dump fees. Volunteer Elaine Lowe said it is unlikely the person intended to make a donation of a full-sized couch. “It’s a little tiny store and we are already tripping over everything,” she said. “We only want quality items like small household items and clothes.” Stemp said she is ashamed to have their back cluttered up, especially when backside neighbour Eldon Smith of Boyce Funeral Home recently renovated his entire parking lot.

Freda wins fourth straight Madawaska championship KEVIN RYAN Madawaska Golf Club

Perry Freda successfully defended his Madawaska Men’s Club Championship with a seven-shot victory over perennial contender Gary Grainger on the Labour Day weekend. Freda opened with a 2-under-par 68 and closed with a 2-over-par 72 to finish at 140 (even par). This two-day total ties the lowest ever club championship score recorded at the club and is Freda’s fourth consecutive and fifth title overall. Grainger opened with an even par score of 70 but faltered a bit on day two with a 77 to finish at 147 and alone in second place. Mike Aris was third at 149, followed by Ray Kulchyski at 150 and Doug Robertson and Bill Descoteaux at 151. Dean Dimonte is the 2010 Men’s B club champion. Dimonte fired a 2-over-par 72 on day one and followed with a 77 on day two for a total of 149. Ranny Gauvreau finished alone in second place at 151, followed by Frank Pecora at 159, Lincoln Jeffries at 159, Ken Ledgerwood at 161 and Brian Bonnar at 164. Brian Wallace defended his C club championship with a two-day total of 166. Larry Aris finished second at 171, followed by Hayden Pleau, Keith Blimkie, Matt Oliver and Dave Cormier all at 173. Mike Teed also defended his D club championship with a fine score of 182 over the two-day event. He was followed by Doug Carty at 185, Doug Howe at 187, Jamie Ralph at 188 and El Strauss at 195. Gauvreau was the low net shooter for the weekend with a 127. He captured the Marcellus trophy emblematic of the low net score overall for the two-day event. Ted Davies and Strauss organized the weekend and the prize table and the ladies club executive provided the scoring and spotting on the course during the competition. Thanks to everyone who helped with a great weekend, but the real winner was the golf course condition, which was excellent, thanks to Gord Johansen and his on-course team. The greens were immaculate, the fairways and bunkers were perfectly manicured, and the pin placements were exceptional. In addition to Freda’s club champion-

Packers set for new season

Carp’s Joanna Brown won the bronze medal at the 2010 Triathlon Junior World Championships in Budapest, Hungary Sunday. “This really is amazing but it definitely hasn’t sunk in yet that I finished third at the world championships,” said the 17-year-old Brown, who posted a time of 59 minutes, seven seconds. “It really wasn’t a perfect day, but I wanted to be close to the lead off the bike because I am really confident with my running.” Brown parked her bike 25 seconds behind the leaders, and bolted down the five-kilometre course where she clocked the second-fastest run time of the day.

There’s a little bit of Glee in the air! A young Arnprior high school singer with aspirations to a career in the arts will perform with the Ottawa Valley Music Festival in Almonte this Sunday, Sept. 19. Brendan Edge has been chosen by the festival as its ‘young performer’, part of a commitment to arts scholarships and community outreach. Edge is a Grade 12 student at Arnprior District High School.

Recently I have had calls concerning monarch butterflies, with as many as 50 to 100 being seen at a time. I suspect that many of these colorful butterflies have come from local fields where their main food plant, common milkweed, abounds. Others came from fields to the north and west. Monarchs are one of our very few migratory insects and the ones reported recently have likely already departed for the south. The annual migration of monarchs is now well charted, but for many years the destination was unknown. It took University of Toronto graduate student Fred Urquhart many years to solve the mystery. In 1937 Urquhart placed a small tag on the wing of a monarch butterfly in the start of his quest for the answer. The tag bore the U of T address, and eventually Urquhart began to receive dead tagged monarchs. As these came from the United States, he proved that the last generation of Ontario monarchs did indeed migrate. In 1975, nearly 40 years after his research began, Urquhart received a call from Ken Brugger, a naturalist volunteering with the research in Mexico. The destination of Ontario monarchs, the holy grail of insect migra-

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way tion, had been found. Monarchs in eastern North America migrate to Mexico’s Oyamel forest where they cluster by the millions on remote mountainsides. These hardy butterflies spend the winter there but never return here. Instead, in spring they mate in the southern U.S.A, laying eggs on milkweeds. The caterpillars, which safely store the heart poisons contained in the host plants, transform into the also toxic adult butterflies, which fly farther northeast. They stop and mate and the next generation does the same until finally a fresh generation arrives in our backyards. These butterflies, the great grandchildren of the monarchs

that left in the previous late summer, mate, lay eggs, and produce another generation of butterflies that does the same. This latest generation is the one recently encountered and is the one that flies to Mexico. Monarchs arrive in Mexico in late October about the time of the Mexican holiday, el Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead). The native people believe the butterflies are the returning souls of children and warriors. Prior to their departure from our area, monarchs build up body fat reserves that helps fuel their long journey south. The butterflies also feed as they move. Because they are loath to cross large bodies of water, monarchs concentrate along the shores of lakes Ontario and Erie. The largest buildups occur in Point Pelee as the butterflies wait for favourable winds to help carry them across the narrow neck of the lake. In late September up to a million monarchs can adorn the trees at Pelee’s tip. How migratory behaviour can be programmed into butterflies generations removed from the original migrants will likely never be understood. But it is good to have mysteries remaining to be solved!

Local author goes graphic An Arnprior-born author is challenging the norms with his upcoming graphic novel. The press release launching Von Allan’s Stargazer, Volume 1, says the author was “ born red-headed and freckled in Arnprior, Ontario, just in time for Star Wars: A New Hope.” It goes on to describe the Ottawa-based artist and graphic novelist as the “single child of two loving but troubled parents.” All-ages comics and graphic novels are still a rarity in publishing. As comics have skewed to an older and more mature readership, relatively few titles are currently being published that appeal to younger readers. And, of the currently available titles, very few feature girls as the story’s protagonists. Allan, an Ottawa-based artist and graphic novelist, is trying to tackle this problem with the publication of his all-ages fantasy graphic novel. On Sunday, Nov. 7 at 4 p.m., Allan will be formally launching Stargazer at Perfect Books, an independent neighbourhood bookstore in downtown Ottawa. “Comics and graphic novels have appeared to skew toward older readers over the past 20 years or so,” said Allan. “While there’s nothing really wrong with that, it’s a shame there aren’t more age-appropriate graphic novels for younger readers, especially when you consider the history of the medium. “Characters like Captain Marvel, Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel Junior all had a very diverse readership back in the 1930s and 1940s. Boys and girls embraced these characters in a way that rarely happens in today’s publishing climate. “Comics and graphic novels are such a wonderful form of storytelling and I believe it’s very important to reach out as much as possible to younger readers,” added Allan. “I think this situation is actually made worse by the lack of stories featuring girls as the main characters. While there are a strong female protagonists in young adult fiction, in comics this is far less prevalent. Part of the reason I wanted to create Stargazer is to challenge all of these norms.”

Book signing encouraging It was an encouraging turnout Aug. 14 at the Pakenham General Store for Krista Connell’s first introductory book signing. The Ottawa-born author will hold more book signings in the Whitby-Oshawa area (she lives in nearby Brooklin) and perhaps Kanata and Orleans. Connell, who is a graduate of Perth and District Collegiate Institute, will also

be doing a reading at the main library of Whitby, and has been contacted by the Oshawa Main Library to do the same. Her books are on sale at the Pakenham General Store. The third book of four in the series of Through the Stones will be published by summer 2011. For more information, check out Connell’s website at www.throughthestones. webs.com

at the Nick Smith Center from 6 p.m.- 8 p.m.

Von Allan’s Stargazer, Volume 1, is an all-ages graphic novel. The launch of the Arnprior native’s book is Nov. 7 in Ottawa. Stargazer is the story of Marni, a young girl dealing with the recent death of her grandmother. That death has left Marni emotionally devastated and struggling to cope. Granny Hitchins was a wonderfully curious woman, responsible for giving her granddaughter a rich sense of imagination and adventure, as well

Comics and graphic novels are such a wonderful form of storytelling... • Von Allan

as an old and mysterious Artifact. While not a replacement, the Artifact is nonetheless a treasured memento for Marni after her grandmother’s death. With the love and support of her two best friends, Sophie and Elora, and the magic of the Artifact to comfort her, Marni is just

beginning to cope with the loss of her beloved grandmother when her life takes an abrupt and strange turn. While the girls are examining the Artifact on a backyard camping trip, the object suddenly takes on a life of its own, transporting the three friends and their tent to a strange and distant world. After summoning their courage, Marni, Sophie and Elora venture out to explore their alien surroundings, where they find a surreal world containing a robot, a mysterious far-off tower, and an illusive yet terrifying monster. Scared, yet buoyed by the stories and songs that they’ve heard while growing up, the three girls gather their meagre supplies and head out into the wilderness, determined to find a way home. A magical tale with the most unlikeliest of heroes, Stargazer is an exploration of friendship, loss, and hope. By turns terrifying, poignant, and humorous, Stargazer is part fairytale, part science fiction, and part adventure story. For more information, visit stargazer.vonallan. com

Gallant also slammed the opposition parties for proposing to give new Canadians old age pension benefits after three years residency. She also used the column to thank all retiring municipal councillors for their service to the community. For the full column, see the newspaper’s website at yourottawaregion.com

Renfrew County council has unanimously passed a motion requesting the annual $40 million allocation to eastern Ontario’s municipalities be continued. The motion, passed in the Aug. 25 meeting of county council, refers to the money the 14 municipalities of Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus have accessed since the mid-2000s when Paul Martin was the Liberal prime minister. The additional funding, which was intended to offset funding inadequacies, was to end two years ago. However, the allocation was extended for two years. But two years isn’t enough, say several county councillors, including Petawawa Mayor Bob Sweet. “This is a very, very important piece of funding that could be lost to us,� said Sweet. County councillors say they’ve heard no word about a possible extension. Those funds, which are administered by the Renfrew County Futures Development Corporation, have helped numerous programs across the county. “I can’t tell you how many times we’ve accessed the fund,� said Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe. “The fund allows for alternative sources of funds that might not fit into specific budget categories, but are necessary for the advancement and betterment of the community,� said Greater Madawaska Reeve Peter Emon. These funds have been used for a wide variety of uses, such as website redesign, trail system upgrades, energy-efficiency workshops for the public and asset management inventory work. Madawaska Valley Mayor John Hildebrandt said sometimes Renfrew County council is too nice and polite, but needs to take a more direct approach and get local MP Cheryl Gallant to provide

answers on a variety of issues. He says these issues include the future direction of the AECL (Atomic Energy of Canada Limited) in Chalk River, because he doesn’t want to see this huge bank of scientific knowledge to be lost to a possible buyer, such as France, China or the United States. “I sit here and I don’t have a clue what the government wants to do with AECL,� said Hildebrandt, arguing that the least county council can do is get Gallant to “tell us what’s going on.� Emon suggested a more conciliatory approach with a smaller delegation: “She does live just down the street and a meeting with her should be fairly easy to set up. “She’d be reluctant to show up here (in council chambers) where everyone’s throwing out questions. It would be better in a smaller, collegial environment.� At the same time, Emon stressed the need to receive clearer indications from Gallant on the $40 million allocation and AECL’s future. On the latter, Emon said: “We need her as an advocate to ensure that AECL has a continued presence in the world’s nuclear community.�

In her September column, RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant blames policies put into place by the Trudeau Liberals for preventing the Conservative government from taking a stronger stand on the boatload of Sri Lankan refugees. “Our government is constrained by international agreements signed by the old Liberal government of Trudeau and a flaw in the Charter by Trudeau that gives so-called refugee claimants the same legal rights as Canadians once they reach

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

Fox Run special event for Terry’s Team members Arnprior Terry Fox Run at Fairgrounds Sunday SHERRY HAAIMA shaaima@msn.com

Not only does one of the 2010 Arnprior’s Terry’s Team members share a first name with the legendary cancer research fundraiser, he feels a special connection to the man, as well. “He could very well be the reason that I am alive today – because of the better treatments and the money he raised to get better treatments,” says McNabBraeside’s Terry Jordan, who shares the Terry’s Team honour with Eileen Currie of Arnprior. The two will be on hand this Sunday, Sept. 19 at the Arnprior Agricultural track for the event, which raised a grand total of $7,056 last year. Local run organizer Rita Cloutier, herself a cancer survivor, says it’s important to highlight some of the fighters in the community. “Terry’s team members are people who have put up a tremendous fight,” says Cloutier. She learned of Jordan’s story from his sister, who she met at the Arnprior and District Breast Cancer Support Group. Jordan was quite down in the beginning and Cloutier was among those who kept positive messages coming at him. “I kept telling him ‘You are going to make it’,” says Rita. And so he has. Jordan is active and getting his confidence back, she says. His lung cancer was diagnosed in November 2007. His treatment of 45 radiation and six chemotherapy sessions was finished in March 2008 and he and wife Mary Lynn are happy to report he is now cancer-free. Terry had been a smoker but quit about two years prior to his diagnosis. When weak spells and a persistent cough did not abate, Terry’s visit to the doctor identified the problem. “I was told by friends, my wife and everybody to quit. I was one of those people who says ‘Well, it won’t happen to me’,” he says. Terry says he is lucky the treatments didn’t completely floor him. He was tired and his stomach was upset, but he rallied. Travelling back and forth every day to Ottawa was half the battle. Winter storms and traffic jams added to the chaos. He praised staff at the Ottawa General for their superb care. “Those people down there are wonderful. They looked after me very well,” says Jordan. He’s pleased to be a part of Terry’s team and get together with others for such a good cause. “It’s good for him to get his story out so people know that there are cures. More and more people are being cured all the time,” says Mary Lynn. He admits it was rough going in the beginning. He considered his diagnosis a death sentence. “I thought I was dead. It bothered me,” he says. “A lot of times I thought I was done, but I wanted to live and I still do.” With three children, six grandchildren and one great-grandchild and the support

Terry Jordan: positive attitude the key. of friends and family, there’s plenty to live for. Positive thinking and a good attitude are key to surviving cancer, says Jordan. He appreciates just being able to get out and do things, including fishing the local waters, often with his son alongside. Walking the dog and walking around the yard are simple pleasures he no longer takes for granted.

Eileen Currie, sister of Rita Cloutier, is facing her second bout with lung cancer. Eileen has lost 52 pounds with the aggressive treatment used to treat the recent cancer, which appeared in her other lung. Her strength is not what it once was, but her spirit is as strong as ever. Currie’s case is unusual, says Cloutier, in that the first time around, a hospital error led to an 18-month delay from the time she was tested and cancer was detected to the time she was actually informed and treatment was started. “She’s just the most amazing thing, She literally lights up every room,” says Rita. Eileen made many friends at the Ottawa General and the adjacent Grimes Lodge where patients and family members from out of town can stay between treatments. “She kept the place lit up with joy, happiness and sunshine,” says Cloutier. “That’s the way she’s handling it.” The first time around, Currie’s cancer was described as ‘slow’ and radiation was the prescribed treatment.

Continued from Page 26 This time, it was aggressive cancer and she has just finished rounds of radiation and chemotherapy. Currie, like Jordan, says she’s lucky that the chemo did not make her really ill. She praised the Ottawa General hospital staff and in particular those at Grimes Lodge. “I think they are the most fabulous people on earth,” says Currie. “It is an amazing place.” What’s the secret to her positive attitude? “You can’t change is it the way I look at it,” says Currie. “Keep up your spirit. There’s always hope, isn’t there? There has to be.” Life experiences have put things into perspective for Currie, who says losing her son was far more painful than cancer. “I lost my only son. There’s not a thing on this earth that will ever get me down like that,” she says. She has a daughter who lives in Eganville and a granddaughter in university, of whom she’s very proud. The self-described bingo addict says that while the cancer and treatments have definitely worn her down, her spirit is what keeps her going. “I’m a go, go, person,” she says. Eileen is grateful for the great support she’s had from family and friends, including sister Mary Blimkie, who traveled to Ottawa to be with Currie during the treatments. “I say she’s my rock,” says Currie. LACE UP FOR CANCER RESEARCH As the weekend nears, Cloutier is keeping an eye on the weather forecast but

Eileen Currie: keep up your spirits. won’t let rain or bad weather dampen her enthusiasm for the cause. “Terry Fox walked in the cold rain and hot sun on one leg, so we can do it,” she says. She encourages everyone to come out and get involved, stressing that there is no distance requirement – even one walk around the track or a small donation will make a difference. The Terry Fox Run runs from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Arnprior Fairgrounds.

We have been fortunate enough to receive a grant from the Ministry of Health Promotion and Sport to bring Arnprior Gets Healthy back to the community. Arnprior Gets Healthy has a multitude of different aspects to it. We will be bringing back Arnprior Gets Active, with Grade 5 and Grade 9 passes to youth, but with way more programs on it. Keep an eye out on next week’s paper to see what we are offering with the pass. Another aspect is that they will be covering the cost of busing to different trips. So, what could be more fun than heading out to Russell on Saturday, Sept. 25 for the Extreme Rodeo? As part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, we are going to the Russell Fairgrounds to see the 2010 Extreme Rodeo Tour. This event features bull riding, junior bull riding, the Canadian Cowgirls, rodeo clowns, saddle bronco riding, bareback riding, barrel racing, junior barrel racing and more. Tickets are limited to 12 participants, so register as early as possible.

Youth Corner

Kayla Reinert We will be cutting off registration Thursday, Sept. 23. The cost for the trip is $20 per participant. We will be leaving the Nick Smith Centre at 11:30 a.m. and returning at about 6 p.m. This is open to youth ages 9 and up. As all our trips, we are a transportation service with discounted rates to special events and facilities. Youth are responsible for their behavior on all trips, so bring a friend for some fun. Dodgeball is starting up soon. There has been some changes though.

With us trying to make the grant program the best we can, we will start our first dodgeball of the year Oct. 18 from 6 to 7 p.m. Get practicing now while waiting. Don’t forget about the Hawaiian Tween Dance this Friday, Sept 17. Only open to Grades 4 to 8, it runs from 7 to 10 p.m. Parents, don’t forget that you need to fill out a permission form. Arnprior Life has come out in the local paper. Please keep in mind that there may be some changes from the prices, dates and programs (cheaper prices, more dates and tons more programs) due to us receiving this grant. Registration is open for all our fall and winter programs. These registrations must be done in person with cash or cheque at the Nick Smith Centre. We will be getting our new, updated program flyer out soon so keep an eye for it.

Healing in the Valley is presenting Arnprior’s third annual Wellness Show this Saturday, Sept. 18. The show runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre. The Wellness Show is organized to provide a fun and safe environment for attendees to

learn information about various natural, holistic and alternative health care offerings that help people attain and maintain a healthy mind, body and soul. This year’s Wellness Show includes some returning exhibitors as well as new products and services to explore and learn

about. Professionals will provide energy healing and information about Mandalas, crystals, gemstones, natural cleaning products, natural health products and more. The exhibitors are eager to answer questions, provide literature, demonstrations and/or

readings. While there is no admission fee to the show, organizers are asking visitors to consider donating non-perishable items for or make a monetary donation to the Arnprior Food Bank. “We are coming up to a time of year when these services

could really use donations and assistance in any way,” said organizer Koula Cove. “With the economy the way it is, children back to school, the holidays approaching, we would love to contribute as much as we can.” See HEALING, Page 29

With those lazy, hazy days of summer behind us and fall just around the corner, let’s not forget about our four-legged family. Our pets that have been with us throughout the summer are now faced with quiet, long days home alone until we return from our day whether from school or from work. Separation anxiety is that nasty behaviour we see when we leave the house and Fido goes ballistic chewing and destroying such things as pillows, couches, articles of clothing and even

Pet Talk

IAN STUPP

oneself. Kennel training your puppy will prevent destructive behaviour while you’re away. How can we make our pet’s transition easier? When leaving for the day, make sure Fido’s in a secure place. Leave a bowl of water

and some treats stuffed inside various toys to distract them throughout the day. Stuffing toys with foods like peanut butter and cheese whiz are a fun and delicious treat for your pet. Remove anything that you do not want your pet to have. If the area your pet is in lacks adequate lighting, leave a light on. Turning on the radio or television can be comforting to your pet while you’re away. If you happened to purchase a puppy or kitten during the summer months and you are wor-

ried about leaving them behind, you can teach them to accept your absence by leaving for them alone for a few minutes, than leave for a few hours building gradually to a full day. If all else fails, you can always hire a dog walker/ sitter to look after Fido while you’re away. Just like little children, your pets have feelings too and although they cannot articulate how they feel, what they do when you’re away is their way of saying ‘Hey! I miss you guys and don’t like being left alone’. So please think of them

Health unit encourages sports groups, parents to be smoke-free in parks, fields

PLAY, LIVE, BE Encouraging tobacco-free sports and recreation is part of the Play, Live, Be Tobacco-Free initiative funded through The Ministry of Health Promotion. The health benefits gained by participating in sport and recreational activities are counteracted when children are exposed to tobacco industry products, says the Health Unit. Smoking slows lung growth, decreases lung function, and reduces the oxygen available for muscles to use in sport and recreation. The tobacco-free sports and recreation initiative works to-

ward ensuring everyone involved in a sports and recreational activity does not use tobacco industry products. Participants, parents, coaches, leaders, officials and spectators are asked not to smoke, snuff, dip or chew tobacco while engaged in sport and recreation. As a result, children see positive role modeling and receive the same tobacco-free messages at their local sport or recreation activity as they experience at school and in the wider community. The Health Unit is encouraging and supporting local municipalities and the sport and recreation organizations to develop tobacco-free policies and create tobacco-free zones so everyone can enjoy clean air and good health. For more information, visit the website at www. playlivebetobaccofree.ca

Saturday, September 18, 1-3:00p.m. 189 Wagon Drive, Dunrobin

During September and October, thousands of people all over Canada will make their coffee count by supporting the Alzheimer Society’s annual fundraiser, Coffee Break. The 15th annual Alzheimer Coffee Break officially kicks off today (Thursday) leading up to World Alzheimer Day on Sept. 21. Coffee Break raised more than $1.3 million nationally in 2009 – and in Ottawa and Renfrew County, it raised over $25,000 to support local programs for the 13,000 people living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias as well as their families.

PRIVATE WOODED RETREAT! Imagine 2.85 Ac just mins from the Ottawa River & Eagle Creek Golf Course. Luxurious yet Practical 4 Bdr, 5 Bth Home BREAK boasts dramatic Entry, Vaulted Ceilings, Hrdwd in Principal Rooms, 2 FFPs & more. If you need space for Extended Family, an In-Law Suite, or are The funds raised are critical an Executive looking for a separate Business Space, this Home’s Separate because the Alzheimer Society Wing is ideal! of Ottawa and Renfrew County

derives over 70 per cent of its total revenue for much-needed programs from fundraising activities. Coffee Break happens in one of three ways: 1) Ottawa area merchants (such as Bulk Barn, Giant Tiger, The Medicine Shoppe, and The Works) host an event by selling coffee-cup cutouts for a dollar; 2) local hosts such as retire-

$479,500 MLS# 757628

ment residences, private hosts and business offices serve coffee and ask for a donation; 3) supporters wishing to donate online may either support the local Alzheimer Society’s virtual Coffee Break found via www. alzheimer-ottawa-rc.org or host a virtual Coffee Break themselves. Four years ago, sisters Rona and Moya Hamilton started to help raise funds as a family. They launched their first Alzheimer’s luncheon as part of the Coffee Break initiative. For more information about Coffee Break and how you can get involved, contact Natalie St. Amour at 613-523-4004, ext. 145 or nstamour@asorc.org

The Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County will present a special public screening of the feature documentary Forgetful Not Forgotten Wednesday, Sept. 22 in Renfrew. The documentary was chosen Best International Film at the Indie Spirit Film Festival 2009 held in Colorado Springs. The screening, with runs from 1 to 3 p.m. at the O’Brien Theatre, will be followed by a questionand-answer session with filmmaker Chris Wynn. It will be moderated by Max Keeping, CTV Ottawa Community Ambassador and Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County local patron. Cost is $10 at the door. Reservations are required at the toll-free phone number of 1-888-411-2067. Make sure your smoke alarms work! Test your smoke alarms at least once a month. Only remove the batteries to replace them.

One of two Take Back the Night Marches in Renfrew County will be held in the south end of the county this year. The 18th annual march will be held Thursday, Sept. 23, in Renfrew. The march is a symbolic action in which women reclaim the right to walk at night, free of fear, explain organizers. Violence and sexual assault too often keep women in a state of fear; it governs how and where they walk, it often confines them to their homes and silences them. The march proposes to break that silence and loosen the shackles of fear, if only for one night. It is a reminder that violence exists and it is a public statement that battering, sexual harassment and assault are not isolated problems, but pervasive ones, which affect women every day and every night in every hamlet, village, town and city. Take Back the Night marches are an international event that began in Germany in 1978 when 3,000 women flooded the streets in protest of rape and violence against women. In previous years, the Renfrew County march has been held in Renfrew, Deep River, Pembroke,

“Those we love stay with us always, locked in our hearts as long as our life remains.” Love, Mom and Dad

COADY, Sean Douglas Remembering my fun and loving brother… my best friend… who left this earth, much too soon, September 16, 2006. Four years have passed… not a day goes by that I don’t think of you and wish for one more laugh, one more hug. Time passes… the grief remains, but I know that you would say… Keep my memory with you, For memories never die. I will always be there with you, When you look up in the sky. When your heart is heavy And you feel you are alone, Reach deep down inside yourself For your heart is now my home. I will always be there with you I will never go away I will live on within your heart Each and every day.

COADY, Sean Douglas In loving memory of our dear son, who tragically was taken too soon, September 16, 2006. Every day our hearts are filled with sorrow, Wondering how we will make it through tomorrow. Our time with you was precious, And the memories we have are too. The love we share together keeps us close to you. Maybe we cannot touch your hand or see your smiling face, Maybe we cannot hear your voice or feel your warm embrace, But, there is something we will always have, Tucked safely in our hearts, Our love for you… your love for us… will never let us part.

“In my mind I see you and in my heart I keep you…” Love, Erin

One of the teams paddling in this past weekend’s Dragonboat Festival had a full boat, but was still missing a member. This year’s festival, held at Riverside Park on Saturday, Sept. 11, boasted a record four breast cancer survivor groups participating. Sadly, one of the groups had to paddle on even as they mourned the loss of one of their members. “It’s been a pretty emotional year for us,” admitted Frances Sanford-Smith, team co-ordinator for the Busting Out group from Ottawa, which lost a member of its team Friday, Sept. 10. “She hasn’t paddled with us for a number of years (but), she’s the third member we’ve lost since January … Not all years are like this (though).” The group faced similar challenges last year when another member died the day before another major dragonboat race in Peterborough. But for Sanford-Smith and her ladies of the lakes, being together makes them stronger, and get through. “It’s good to be with all of your friends who are in, literally, the same boat,” said Sanford-Smith. “Sometimes it gives added emotion.”

BROHART Reg (Retired McNab Braeside Township) Suddenly and unexpectedly in hospital, Arnprior on Monday afternoon, September 6th, 2010. Reginald Jerome Brohart of Arnprior at the age of 76 years.

Loved stepfather of Shawn Fridgen (Cathy) of Braeside; Jamie McCanna (Katie Proulx) of Arnprior and Jennifer Williams (Brandon) of Orleans. Proud “Grampa” of 18 grandchildren and 6 greatgrandchildren. Loved brother of Lloyd (late Marie) and Lavern (Marie), both of Quadeville; Luella Olsen (late Walter) and Barbara Hanes (Jerry Bryant), both of Lindsay. Predeceased by a brother, Orvilla (late Vi).

Photo finish: The Prior Chest Nuts pull ahead to finish in third place ahead of the Girls n’ Women and Sport 2 team in fourth, as seen from the upper deck of the Carleton Place Canoe Club,

Arnprior’s Prior Chest Nuts give each other a big group hug before taking to the waters of the Mississippi River in Carleton Place during their first-ever competition on Saturday at Riverside Park. Right, Lorna Watson, captain of the Prior Chest Nuts, leads her team in stretching exercises. Photos by Desmond Devoy

Sanford-Smith herself had breast cancer in 2001, and joined the team two years later. The team was formed in 1998 and operates from the Rideau Canoe Club. Not only does the team foster friendship and a social network for survivors, but “it does help your well being.” Sanford-Smith also noted studies have shown that the more people work out, the less likely they are to get cancer and, if they do get cancer, exercise can decrease the chances of it returning. While the festival was a competition amongst various teams from groups as disparate as the Ottawa Police Service and the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital Foundation – one of the recipients of the festival’s fundraising drive – the three other participating breast cancer survivor groups in this year’s event made sure that they knew that their sisters from Ottawa knew that they were not alone in their grieving. The Chest Mates team from Kingston formed a “rower’s arch” with their paddles on the beach at Riverside Park once the Busting Out team returned to shore after their race. “It reminds each of us that when you’re on the water, you’re just thinking about the race. But when you come off the water, it’s all about solidarity,” said Sarah Emery of the Chest Mates team, who helped arrange the arch. Emery added that her group was also on hand to show their support for Arnprior’s Prior Chest Nuts team, who were taking part in their first-ever dragon boat competition. Not surprisingly, the event attracted a lot of groups who have an interest in promoting a healthy lifestyle. The Monsters of Medicine, for example, were on hand to represent the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital Foundation, if not necessarily to win, coming in fourth place in their first race of the day. In 2007, the festival raised about $5,000 for the hospital foundation, $6,000 in 2008, and $12,000 in 2009. About 44 boats took place in this year’s race,
